Council to review structure study If you go

Report assesses condition of DeKalb’s municipal building By CHRIS BURROWS cburrows@shawmedia.com DeKALB – The DeKalb City Council is set to review the results of a $60,000 study commissioned to assess the condition of DeKalb’s nearly 50-year-old municipal building. The 170-page report, com-

pleted by Dewberry Architects, lays out the building’s faults, as well as pricing and renovation options. The council will review the report today at its committee of the whole meeting at 5 p.m. Talks of renovating the building, which was constructed in 1967, have been ongoing since leaders decided to move the

DeKalb Police Department to its own building, 5th Ward Alderman Ron Naylor said. “The building is tired,” he said. “There’s been very little done to it over the years other than some exterior maintenance and redecorating on the inside.” According to the report, the building remains structurally

sound, but there are concerns for safety, accessibility and efficiency that need addressing. Mold and asbestos both were found in various parts of the building. The heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems were found to use a refrigerant that is scheduled to be phased out in the United States

For Obama, diplomatic openings on three fronts

‘YOU HAVE TO KNOW WHAT YOU’RE EATING’

Food program educates

Chicago-area moms visit Maple Park farm By ANDREA AZZO news@daily-chronicle.com MAPLE PARK – Making mindful choices at the grocery store can be very confusing for Becky Martinez, a mother to 4-year-old twins. But the Glen Ellyn resident learned more about how food makes it from the farm to the grocery story Saturday at Larson Farms in

Maple Park. The event was part of Illinois Farm Families’ Field Mom program, which takes Chicago-area mothers to various farms to teach them about the agricultural process. Participants learned about the different grades of meat, the use of growth hormones and the differences

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama arrives at the United Nations today with diplomatic openings, the result of help from unexpected partners, on three fronts: Iran, Syria, and elusive peace between Israel and the Palestinians. All three pathways are fraught with potential pitfalls and hinge on cooperation from often unreliable nations. Obama also risks being branded as naive and misguided if the efforts fail, particularly in Syria, where he’s used the prospect of diplomacy to put off a military strike in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack. Still, the recent developments mark a significant shift on a trio of issues that have long proved problematic for Obama at the United Nations. His former Iranian counterpart used the annual U.N. General Assembly meetings, which open today, as a venue for fiery, anti-American speeches. Failed Middle East peace talks led the Palestinians to seek statehood recognition at the U.N. despite staunch American objections. And the Obama administration has been stymied on Syria at the U.N. Security Council due to intractable Russian opposition. But this year, Iran has a new leader who is making friendly overtures toward Obama, raising the prospect of a meeting at the United Nations. U.S.-brokered peace talks between the Israelis and Palestinians have resumed – though on an uncertain course. And Russia has joined

Cate Cardella, a 1992 graduate of DeKalb High School, is teaching kindergarten at Tyler Elementary School in the same classroom space where she attended kindergarten in 1980-81.

8 FACE TIME WITH ...

BUSINESS OFFICE Billing: 815-526-4585 Fax: 815-477-4960

Cate Cardella Cate Cardella’s life has come full circle. She moved back to DeKalb and married Fred Cardella, a high school friend, three months and a day after she bumped into him again two years ago. Now, the 1992 DeKalb High School graduate is teaching kindergarten at Tyler Elementary School in the same classroom space where she attended kindergarten in 1980-81 in Donna Bennett’s class. Her mother, Ruth Maher, also taught in Tyler Elementary School. When Cardella was in first grade, Maher was teaching a combined class of second- through fifth-graders, but at one point she taught in the same space where Cardella now teaches. The school’s first principal, George Riccio, remains a family friend. The Cardellas are expecting their son, Clayton, to be born toward the end of November. Cate Cardella recently spent a few moments talking with News Editor Jillian Duchnowski about how Tyler Elementary School has touched her.

Duchnowski: Tell me how you ended up here. Cardella: I moved to Florida when I was 21, and I came back to visit two years ago after being in Florida for 16 years. I bumped into a guy I knew in high school, and I ended up moving back, and we got married three months and a day later. I obviously quit my job in Florida, and I had to get into the sub Cate Cardella pool here to get into the in kindergarten system. I picked up the sub job that John Hahn [an art teacher for Malta, Founders and Tyler elementary schools who suffered an aneurysm Nov. 20, 2011] had posted when he was out. That went from being a two-week job to a month to two months to the rest of the school year. For my four-school rotation, I was at Tyler for one of my schools. I just got to be back in the building here and familiar with everyone.

Duchnowski: What do you remember

from when you went here as a student? Cardella: When I walk in the building every morning, just that front entryway, the bricks. It smells the same. Turning different corners. Obviously, with the walls up, it’s different, but looking out certain windows or getting a drink from certain fountains I have mini-flashbacks from when I was a student here and what that was like. The room next to me was my fifthgrade classroom. The library is still in the same place. Walking through what used to be the teacher’s lounge, having little flashbacks of teachers in plaid pants, smoking cigarettes. Things were different. The gymnasium is the same. Having assemblies or Christmas programs in there completely reminds me of when I was little.

Duchnowski: Do you live in a place where your son ultimately could go here? Cardella: I would love for him to go to kindergarten here. That would bring it full circle even further. ... There are still come rules and regulations I’m not sure about.

Focus of 2014 campaign shifts to Republicans with the state. Here’s a scorecard of where the races stand:

By KERRY LESTER The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD – The drama in the 2014 campaign for Illinois’ statewide offices shifted substantially after the withdrawal of former White House chief of staff Bill Daley from the Democratic primary for governor. The focus on the state’s top job now switches to the Republican side, where a four-way primary again threatens to split the GOP’s main voting blocs. The field will not be finalized until a Dec. 2 deadline for candidates to file petitions

GOVERNOR/DEMOCRATS Daley’s surprise exodus irked some fellow Democrats. They fear he waited too long to allow for another strong challenger to Quinn, who faces low public approval ratings and no end of challenges. Quinn was formally endorsed for governor by the state Democratic party during a slating event Sunday in Springfield. The only other announced primary candidate is Tio Hardiman, former director of a Chicago anti-violence group,

who is little known outside the city and has a minimally funded campaign. Two pols who previously ruled out a run, Atty. Gen. Lisa Madigan and state Sen. Kwame Raoul, say they are not reconsidering.

GOVERNOR/REPUBLICANS Three longtime lawmakers and one billionaire “outsider” comprise the GOP field. State Sen. Bill Brady of Bloomington and fellow Sen. Kirk Dillard of Hinsdale are making their second bids. State Treasurer Dan Rutherford of Chenoa and Winnetka venture capitalist Bruce Raun-

as an accountant makes him even more qualified. A third GOP contender, Michael Baker, is a political economist and navy veteran from Chicago. On the Democratic side, state Sen. Mike Frerichs of Champaign is so far unopposed.

er also jumped in. Despite vigorous campaigning, political analyst Don Rose said the race is anybody’s game.

TREASURER The contest for the job of investing Illinois’ money is wide open after Rutherford declared his pursuit of the governor’s office. On the Republican side, the outgoing House minority leader, Tom Cross, says his background as a suburban Chicago prosecutor and with state budgeting will be assets. DuPage County Auditor Bob Grogan says his experience

ing challenged in their respective primaries for the job at this point.

ATTORNEY GENERAL To date, no big-name Republican has stepped up to announce a run against Madigan, a 10-year incumbent with one of the biggest war chests in Illinois. One Republican registered to fund raise is Paul Schimpf, a retired Marine Corps veteran and attorney from Waterloo who says he is “increasingly frustrated by the failure of our political class to address the problems facing our state.”

COMPTROLLER The race for the job of paying Illinois’ bills could ultimately be an interesting contest between two well-known names in Illinois. But neither Republican incumbent Judy Baar Topinka nor Democratic Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon are be-

Community walks for Alzheimer’s awareness How to donate

By CHRIS BURROWS cburrows@shawmedia.com DeKALB – Like many baby boomers, Debbie Terpstra has become more concerned with her health as she ages. But the Elburn resident has more reason than most: Her mother, uncle, aunt and two grandparents all have suffered from dementia. According to the Alzheimer’s Association’s website, Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia, and family history is a major risk factor. “My mom is 75, and she’s had it for quite some time,” Terpstra said. “I’m 54. It’s scary.” That fear was displaced with a little bit of hope and some smiles Sunday as Terpstra and hundreds of other locals took part in the Alzheimer’s Association’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s at Hopkins Park in an effort to raise awareness and money that will go toward finding a cure. Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive, nerological disorder that imparts gradual memory loss, impairment of judgment, disorientation and personality change in its vic-

n Online: www.act.alz.org/ dekalb2013 n Phone: 800-272-3900 n Mail: Alzheimer’s Association, P.O. Box 96011, Washington, DC 20090-6011 tims. No cure for the disease has been found. “For the families that are taking care of loved ones or maybe lost a loved one to Alzheimer’s, it’s a good way to team up for a great cause,” said Marilyn Palazzo, the regional hospice coordinator at Transitions Hospice. Transitions Hospice teamed up with The Lincolnshire Place, an assisted-living facility in Sycamore, to raise more than $9,000 for the threemile walk through the park. All told, the event brought together 301 participants representing 35 teams to raise $45,250 in the event’s third year in DeKalb. “New walks grow faster than some of the other walks,” said Jennifer Ratkovic, a manager of special events with the Alzheimer’s Association.

“I think from the first to the second year it almost doubled, and now we’re already ahead of where we were last year. It’s really nice to see the enthusiastic people here in DeKalb.” Kim Zamora, the executive director of The Lincolnshire Place, said she was approached by the Alzheimer’s Association to help get the walk off the ground for the first time in DeKalb in 2010. Zamora’s facility specializes in memory care, and it’s where Terpstra turned when she needed a place for her ailing mother to live. “It was hard trying to find a place because there aren’t many memory-care places,” Terpstra said. “There’s always a waiting list, and we didn’t have time to wait.” Ratkovic said money raised by the event would go toward Alzheimer’s research but some also would go to the charity’s support programs. “We have free educational programs to help people with Alzheimer’s as well as their families and caregivers,” she said. “We also have support groups, one-on-one care navigation with social workers and a 24-7 help line.”

SANDWICH — One year after breaking ground, administrators and staff at Valley West Hospital welcomed the community to an open house for the new patient wing on Saturday. Several hundred people attended the event, which included self-guided tours of the new patient rooms, waiting areas, patient check-in and gift shop. In addition, the new donor wall was unveiled and a family waiting area was dedicated and named for longtime and recently-retired employees Mike and Jenelle Muzzillo. Before the brief dedication ceremony, Mike Muzzillo said he was overwhelmed. “We fought through some battles,” he admitted, “but this is a great organization.” “All along, Mike was the impetus behind this addition,” said Brad Copple,

Small plane lands on main Chicago roadway CHICAGO – A single-engine plane made an emergency landing Sunday on Lake Shore Drive. The pilot wasn’t injured. The Chicago Sun-Times reported that 51-year-old John Pederson was cruising over the lakefront about 6 a.m. Sunday when a piece of the experimental plane broke and started to shake. Authorities said Pederson landed the plane in the north-

bound lanes of Lake Shore Drive near Grant Park. Pederson said two vehicles hit the plane’s left wing after he landed, but drove off. No citations were issued.

Dem leader urges Ill. House to OK gay marriage CHICAGO – The second-ranking Democrat in the Illinois House said the debate over same-sex marriage “now has an economic component that we cannot ignore.”

Majority Leader Barbara Flynn Currie sent a letter to all House members saying it’s time to approve legislation legalizing same-sex marriage. Currie said several new reasons to support the bill have surfaced since lawmakers adjourned in May without voting on the measure. Among them is an effort by the Minneapolis mayor to entice same-sex couples to get married in Minnesota.

Hello my name is Roberta. I am only one year old and I am a very clever girl. I was lost without a home and about to have babies. I found my way into someone’s basement it was dry and warm - a good place to have my babies. The people who lived there weren’t mad. They helped me out and arranged for TAILS to take care of us. I was in pretty bad shape. I was very skinny - those babies can take toll on you. I also had gingivitis and my mouth was pretty sore. TAILS took care of my teeth. I look good now and I get to explore all around the shelter in the mornings. Everyone loves me.

tient rooms and two observation rooms. Medical/surgical and intensive care units will move into the $11.2 million addition when it is approved for occupancy. Officials believe that approval will come in about a month. After those units move, the facility’s oldest wing, which faces Pleasant Avenue, will be demolished and replaced with a modern facade. Additional interior renovations are also planned. Impressed with the facility, Jeanne Baker of Leland said, “We love it. It’s so impressive. I told the staff I would have to get sick just so I could stay here. They said, ‘no, don’t do that.’” Visiting with her husband, Richard, she said their son was born at Sandwich Hospital 65 years ago. At that time, the hospital was on Main Street. The building was razed to build Willow Crest Nursing Pavilion at 515 N. Main St.

Close ties between NSA review board, White House By STEPHEN BRAUN The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Stung by public unease about new details of spying by the National Security Agency, President Barack Obama selected a panel of advisers he described as independent experts to scrutinize the NSA’s surveillance programs to be sure they weren’t violating civil liberties and to restore Americans’ trust. But with just weeks remaining before its first deadline to report back to the White House, the review panel has effectively been operating as an arm of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which oversees the NSA and all other U.S. spy efforts. The panel’s advisers work in offices on loan from the DNI. Interview requests and press statements from the review panel are carefully coordinated through the DNI’s press

office. James Clapper, the intelligence director, exempted the panel from U.S. rules that require federal committees to conduct their business and their meetings in ways the public can observe. Its final report, when it’s issued, will be submitted for White House approval before the public can read it. Even the panel’s official name suggests it’s run by Clapper’s office: “Director of National Intelligence Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technologies.” Its meetings in recent weeks with technology industry and privacy groups have been closed to the public even though no classified information was discussed, according to participants. Attendees told The Associated Press they raised concerns about the NSA’s spying programs. During one session, two participants said, panel members

said the group might hold a separate classified meeting soon with technology executives to discuss details of se-

cret surveillance programs. “No one can look at this group and say it’s completely independent,” said one attend-

national debate in the first place. The final consideration in the White House memo told the panel to examine “our need to maintain the public trust.” There was no mention of the panel investigating surveillance abuses. The review panel, in a statement released through the DNI’s press office, confirmed to the AP that Clapper had exempted it from the U.S. Federal Advisory Committee Act, which requires such committees to conduct open meetings and notify the public about their activities. It said Clapper made the decision because of the “highly classified nature of their review,” but added: “We are conducting this review as openly and transparently as possible.” In private meetings so far, several attendees said their discussions did not mention any classified activities and that the panel members steered them away from doing so.

ee, Sascha Meinrath, director of the Open Technology Institute and vice president at the New America Foundation. Meinrath said the closed meetings “leave the public out of the loop.” Obama described the panel in an Aug. 9 speech as an “independent group” and said its members would “consider how we can maintain the trust of the people, how we can make sure that there absolutely is no abuse in terms of how these surveillance technologies are used.” The formal White House memorandum days later – effectively the legal charter for the group – does not specify anything about its role being independent of the Obama administration. It directed the panel to emphasize in its review whether U.S. spying programs protect national security, advance foreign policy and are protected against the types of leaks that led to the

Blame already being cast over budget fight WASHINGTON – Even before a budget deadline arrives, leaders from both parties are blaming each other – and some Republicans are criticizing their own – for a government shutdown many are treating as inevitable. The top Democrat in the House said Republicans are “legislative arsonists” who are using their opposition to a sweeping health care overhaul as an excuse to close government’s doors. A leading tea party antagonist in the Senate counters that conservatives should use any tool available to stop the Affordable Care Act from taking hold. President Bill Clinton’s labor secretary said the GOP is willing “to risk the entire system of government to get your way,” while the House speaker who oversaw the last government shutdown urged fellow Republicans to remember “this is not a dictatorship.” The unyielding political posturing Sunday comes one week before Congress reaches an Oct. 1 deadline to dodge any interruptions in government services. While work continues on a temporary spending bill, a potentially more devastating separate deadline looms a few weeks later when the government could run out of money to pay its bills.

8WORLD BRIEFS Suicide attack on church in Pakistan kills at least 78 PESHAWAR, Pakistan – A pair of suicide bombers blew themselves up amid hundreds of worshipers at a historic church in northwestern Pakistan on Sunday, killing 78 people in the deadliest-ever attack against the country’s Christian minority. A wing of the Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for the bombing, raising new questions about the government’s push to strike a peace deal with the militants to end

a decade-long insurgency that has killed thousands of people. The attack on the All Saints Church, which wounded 141 people, occurred as worshipers were leaving after services to get a free meal of rice, said a top government administrator, Sahibzada Anees.

Suicide bomber hits Iraq Sunni funeral, killing 16 BAGHDAD – A suicide bomber detonated his explosive belt among Sunni mourners attending a funeral in Baghdad

on Sunday, killing 16 people and wounding 35 others, officials said, in the latest episode of the country’s near-daily violence. Police officials said the evening attack took place when a suicide bomber detonated his explosive belt inside a tent where the funeral was being held in Baghdad’s southern neighborhood of Dora. Two other attacks in the country’s north left two policemen dead and 37 others wounded, the officials added.

‘[Moms] want to know their food is safe’ • FARM Continued from page A1 between organic and conventional food. “You have to know what you’re eating,” Martinez said. “It shouldn’t be that hard to figure out.” According to Beef Quality Assurance, a cow treated without hormone growth promotants contains 1.2 nanograms of estrogen per 3 oz. of meat, as compared with 1.9 nanograms for a cow treated with hormone growth promotants. Mike Martz, owner of Larson Farms, said a baked potato contains 225 nanograms of estrogen per 3 oz. He used M&M’s to help the mothers visualize the differences. “[The moms] want to know their food is safe and understand the things they hear in the media,” said Martz’s wife, Lynn. As Mike Martz’s presentation stated, there are marketing buzz words that people hear in advertisements that could mislead consumers.

“Without farmers, we wouldn’t have the quality of life we have. People underestimate that.” Janelle Floerke Orland Park resident on the most important thing she could teach her kids about farming For example, advertisements that say poultry and pork are hormone-free are deceptive, Martz said. Hormones are not allowed in raising hogs or poultry, according to the United States Department of Agriculture. The event also included a talk by Randy Willrett, a Malta farmer who began raising his crops organically after his wife questioned him about his farm and the state of well-being for their children. Willrett said although he is constantly monitoring his crops and tilling his fields, he is doing well economically. “I feel well rewarded for the amount of effort we put in,” he said.

Willrett does not use pesticides or genetically modified organisms for his crops. Highland Park resident Renee Keats said she has a philosophy on whether to buy organic or conventionally grown products. “If it has a leaf, I want organic. If it has skin I can peel off, like on a banana, I’m less concerned.” Keats also stressed the importance of buying locally as often as possible, such as at a farmers market. “Don’t be afraid to ask questions and engage with people,” she said. “Ask questions to identify where your food came from.” Orland Park resident Janelle Floerke is already familiar with farming, because her dad is a farmer. She said the most important thing she could teach her kids is to keep farming part of their lives. “Without farmers, we wouldn’t have the quality of life we have,” Floerke said. “People underestimate that.” For information, visit watchusgrow.org.

Funding will come from downtown TIF district • COUNCIL Continued from page A1 housed in the building, that meant a 24-hour security presence, Moore said. Funding for any eventual renovations are slated to come from the city’s downtown tax increment financing district, which includes the municipal building, but decreases in property values have cut earmarked funds for the project from $4.5 million to $3.3 million. Mindful of the possible costs involved and of the importance of the building, Nay-

lor said he was glad to have such a detailed report in front of the council. “In the past we’ve maybe gotten the cart before the horse,” Naylor said. “In this process we’re approaching it in the correct manner by getting a detailed report on the

needs of the staff and the community as a whole.” City staff is hopeful that a renovation would allow for the city’s public works and information technology workers to be housed with the rest of the city’s workers and that city services currently housed on the building’s second floor could be moved to the ground level, Moore said. On Monday, the Council won’t take action on whether renovations will take place, but city staff wants input on setting priorities for the project. “It’s about starting the conversation,” Moore said.

Meeting with Iranian president will be closely watched • OBAMA Continued from page A1 with the U.S. on a diplomatic deal to strip Syria of its chemical weapons. Joel Rubin, a former State Department official who now works at the nonproliferation organization Ploughshares, said the confluence of events underscores an often frustrating aspect of diplomacy. “You never know when it’s going to break,” said Rubin. He said Obama’s biggest test now is to recognize if opportunities morph into stalling tactics. Obama’s advisers cast the sudden signs of progress as an outgrowth of the president’s long-standing preference for resolving disputes through diplomacy and, in the case of Iran and Syria, with pressure built up through economic sanctions and the threat of military action. “He said we’d be open to diplomacy, we’d pursue engagement, but that there would be pressure if Iran failed to take that opportunity,” said Ben Rhodes, Obama’s deputy national security adviser. And on Syria, Rhodes said it was the credible threat of a U.S. military strike “that opened the door for this diplomacy.” Aides say Obama will address developments on Iran, Syria and Middle East peace in his speech to the U.N. on Tuesday. The issues also will

be at the forefront of some of the president’s bilateral meetings with world leaders, including a sit-down with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Lebanese President Michel Suleiman, whose country is burdened by the flow of refugees from neighboring Syria. But Obama’s most closely watched meeting may end up being with Iranian President Hasan Rouhani. No encounter is scheduled, but U.S. officials have left open the possibility the two men might talk on the sidelines of the international gathering. If they do, it would mark the first meeting of U.S. and Iranian leaders in more than 30 years. A meeting could also be a precursor to renewed talks on Tehran’s disputed nuclear program – though bridging differences over Iran’s right to enrich uranium and maintain those stockpiles will be a far tougher task than arranging a handshake. The election of Rouhani, a moderate cleric, signaled frustration among many Iranians with their country’s international isolation and the crippling impact of Western sanctions. Obama and Rouhani already have exchanged letters. And the new Iranian president’s rhetoric has so far been more palatable to the U.S. than former leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who would threaten Israel as well as lambast the U.S. in his annual remarks at the U.N.

Trita Parsi, the president of the National Iranian American Council, said Rouhani shares with Obama a need to prove to a domestic audience that diplomacy can garner concrete results. “If he can’t show that his diplomatic approach will pay more dividends for Iran that Ahmadinejad’s theatrics, then it’s back to the conservatives being in the driver’s seat. And the flexibility that Rouhani currently has will be lost,” Parsi said. As Rouhani considers re-engaging with the U.S., he’s closely watching diplomatic developments in Syria, an Iranian ally. A chemical weapons attack near Damascus in August brought the U.S. to the brink of a military strike. But an idea floated by Secretary of State John Kerry turned into a last-minute overture from Russia – another backer of Syrian President Bashar Assad – and resulted in a deal to turn Syria’s chemical weapons stockpiles over to the international community. The breakthrough was particularly unexpected given that Russia has thwarted U.S. efforts to punish Assad through the U.N. Security Council. When Obama was on the verge of launching a strike against Assad’s regime, he said the U.N. had an “incapacity” to address Syria’s violation of international agreements banning the deployment of deadly gases.

Kenyan forces say they rescued ‘most’ hostages By JASON STRAZIUSO and TOM ODULA The Associated Press NAIROBI, Kenya – Helicopters circling overhead, Kenya’s military launched a major operation Sunday at an upscale Nairobi mall and said it had rescued “most” of the hostages being held captive by al-Qaida-linked militants during a two-day standoff that killed at least 68 people and injured 175. The military assault began shortly before sundown, with one helicopter skimming very close to the roof of the shopping complex as a loud explosion rang out, far larger than any previous grenade blast or gunfire volley. Kenyan police said on Twitter that security forces had launched a “MAJOR” assault to end the bloody siege. “This will end tonight. Our forces will prevail. Kenyans are standing firm against aggression, and we will win,” Kenya’s National Disaster Operation Centre said on Twitter. The Kenya Defense Forces later said it had rescued “most” hostages and had taken control of most of the mall, though it did not provide details. Many of the rescued hostages – mostly adults – were suffering from dehydration, Col. Cyrus Oguna, a military spokesman, told The Associated Press. He refused to say how many hostages were rescued or how many were still being held. He said some of the attackers had “most probably” been killed in the operation. The assault came about 30 hours after 10 to 15 al-Shabab extremists stormed the mall Saturday from two sides, throwing grenades and firing on civilians. Loud exchanges of gunfire rang out from inside the

Al-Shabab militants reacted angrily to the helicopters on Twitter and warned that the Kenyan military action was endangering hostages. Kenyan authorities said they would do their utmost to save hostages’ lives, but no officials could say precisely how many people were being held captive. Kenya’s Red Cross said in a statement, citing police, that 49 people had been reported missing. Officials did not make an explicit link but that number could give an indication of the number of people held captive.

Kenya’s Red Cross said the death toll rose to 68 after nine bodies were recovered Sunday. More than 175 people were injured, including many children, Kenyan officials said. Somalia’s al-Qaida-linked rebel group, al-Shabab, claimed responsibility for the attack that specifically targeted non-Muslims, saying it was in retribution for Kenyan forces’ 2011 push into neighboring Somalia. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry condemned what he called “an enormous offense against everybody’s sense of right and wrong,” and called the attackers “ruthless and completely reckless terrorists.”

Genoa market features dogs and scarecrows The Genoa Open Air Market truly has something for everyone on Saturday – except maybe cats. Fresh produce, specialty foods, crafts, new and antique items and live entertainment are not the only things visitors will find. Two crowd favorites, “Dogs Day Out” and “Build your own Scarecrow” return to entertain visitors on two feet or four. “Dogs Day Out is back by popular demand,” Gene Bradford, event chairman for Genoa Main Street Inc., said in a news release. “I guess the dogs have been begging to come back downtown.” Dogs and their owners will find lots to do. All dogs will receive a treat. Children are welcome to bring a stuffed dog. Prizes will be awarded to dog and human winners of several contests. The dog costume contest is for real or stuffed dogs in costume. Humans can compete for best human dressed as a dog (children or adults) and best dog howl by a human. Dogs can take a dip at “dog beach.” Visitors can try their hand at building a scarecrow. Genoa Main Street Inc. provides everything needed, from a frame and head to stuffing and clothes. Both adult- and child-size scarecrows will be available. The cost is $20 per scarecrow, and all proceeds benefit downtown projects and events. “Building a scarecrow together is a fun family tradition,” Diane Helland, Main Street board member and scarecrow organizer, said in the release. “Kids love choosing a face and an outfit for the scarecrow. You can build the scarecrow at the market or pack up the parts and take them home to build later.” Genoa’s open air markets are the largest in the area, attracting crowds to the corner of Main and South Genoa streets in downtown Genoa. Merchants offer sidewalk sales on market days and market visitors receive stickers making them eligible for special offers in downtown shops. Market spaces are available at $25 per space. Lower rates are available for nonprofit

DCP/SAFE assembly addresses drug abuse prevention The public is invited to learn about substance abuse prevention efforts in DeKalb County at the DeKalb County Partnership for a Substance Abuse Free Environment (DCP/SAFE) Coalition’s 24th annual assembly, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 1at the Hopkins Park Terrace Room in DeKalb. A $15 registration fee includes both breakfast

and lunch. Developed in 1990, the DCP/ SAFE Coalition is a volunteer group of community members dedicated to reducing drug and alcohol use and promoting healthy lifestyles, especially in youth. Under the direction of the Ben Gordon Center Prevention and Education Program and the DCP/SAFE Co-

alition steering committee, prevention efforts reach all corners of DeKalb County and involve citizens of all ages. This year’s assembly will feature Debbie Bockstahler as the guest speaker. In July 2012, Bockstahler’s 28-year-old son died from a heroin overdose. Since then, Bockstahler has committed herself

to bringing awareness to the raging epidemic of heroin overdose. Due to her own loss, Bockstahler started a movement via Facebook titled “Drug Awareness: A Mother’s Cry.” Families across the nation who have lost loved ones to addiction have sent her a tremendous number of photos and other art and have praised her efforts to raise

awareness of substance abuse. Bockstahler’s mission is to reveal how deadly substance abuse is and to never have another parent deal with the loss of a child. For more information or to register for the assembly, call 815756-8501 or email capri@bengordocenter.org. Registration deadline is Wednesday.

No breaking away from meth despite progress

8ANOTHER VIEW

Communist Party’s wave of repression in China A Chinese blogger named Wu Dong became an Internet star last year by tracking and reporting on the luxury watches worn by the country’s senior officials. One of the Communist Party bosses he singled out was arrested and sentenced to prison this month. But Mr. Wu himself was reported to be under arrest Tuesday – the latest victim in a mounting crackdown by China’s new leaders on those who advocate political reform or speak out on social media. Xi Jinping, who took over as party chief last November, has tried to bolster his popularity by waging a campaign against corruption and adopting some of the rhetoric of Maoist leftists. But as a slowdown in growth exposes deep-rooted problems with China’s economic model, the new leader increasingly is turning to repression to silence real and potential opponents. Human rights groups say more than 50 activists have been jailed since Mr. Xi assumed the presidency in March, including businessmen, academics and journalists. Many are people whom Mr. Xi could and should have regarded as allies in an effort to open the political system. One is Wang Gongquan, a well-known busi-

nessman and member of the New Citizens Movement, a campaign to promote the rule of law and citizens’ rights. He was arrested last Friday and charged with “organizing a mob to disturb public order” – which is the regime’s way of describing a small demonstration in Beijing that called for senior officials to disclose their assets. Mr. Wang was the third leader of the New Citizens Movement to be arrested since July, including founder Xu Zhiyong. Authorities are, meanwhile, engaged in a campaign to stifle free speech on the Internet. A judicial ruling last week stipulated that bloggers could be sentenced to three years in prison for “spreading rumors” if their reports are reposted more than 500 times or viewed by more than 5,000 people. On Sunday, state television broadcast a chilling video of a Chinese American businessman renouncing postings on the Chinese version of Twitter that had gained him 12 million followers. The blogger, Charles Xue, was arrested on charges of soliciting a prostitute; his meek confession and self-criticism echoed the public humiliation of intellectuals during the Cultural Revolution. The wave of repression is counterproductive in more ways than one. In

addition to advocating incremental and peaceful reforms to the political system, the activists being targeted have been instrumental in calling attention to corruption and other abuses the Communist Party must address to avoid more serious unrest. It’s not just luxury watches: microbloggers have helped to force action on food safety and air pollution, among other issues. Mr. Xi’s turn to repression has gone almost entirely unremarked upon by the Obama administration, which has concentrated on cultivating relations with the new leader. This, too, is shortsighted. It’s in the interest of the United States that China continue on a path of stable development, and intensified repression is more likely to crack open an increasingly restless society than to contain it. As Mr. Wang told The Washington Post’s Simon Denyer recently, “If the government does not open society, it will cause more hurt and more violence, which is not in the government’s interest, either.” President Obama should be making that point to Mr. Xi – and letting the country’s reformers know the United States is on their side. The Washington Post

Latest shooting sign of toxic violence in our air To the rising pile of shooting rampages, Americans can now add the rapid-fire murder of 12 people at the Washington Navy Yard. It is a sign of our remarkable times that this horrid deed seems to pale next to the massacre of 20 schoolchildren in suburban Connecticut last December. Behind virtually every one of these slaughters is a loner who had shown signs of being mentally ill. The Navy Yard suspect, Aaron Alexis, had complained to police in Rhode Island of enemies passing vibrations through hotel walls. He was questioned in Fort Worth, Texas, for firing a bullet into an apartment ceiling and in Seattle for shooting out a car’s tires. Although every incident pointed to a sick mind, none was serious enough to raise a flashing red flag. It’s worrisome how many unbalanced people fly below the official radar. It’s hard to believe there are more mentally unwell people in America than elsewhere. But there are more of other troubling things in this country: isolation, a mesmerizing parade of violent images and easy access to weaponry. I’m not going to dwell here on the gun control issue except to say this: It’s one thing to want firearms for hunting or self-defense. It’s another to demand a right to own weapons that can murder large numbers in seconds. That reflects a cracked worship of killing power, especially attractive to the unstable.

VIEWS Froma Harrop Many argue that mental illness, not the flow of guns, drives these crimes. They are not entirely wrong. But how do you keep killing machines out of crazy hands? Laws requiring a sanity check for gun buyers sound sensible, but the guns used by the slayer of the schoolchildren in Newtown, Conn., were bought by his supposedly rational mother. Adam Lanza’s mother went to bars to brag about her guns while leaving them unlocked at the home she shared with her clearly troubled son. We learn that Alexis, like Lanza, like the Columbine High School shooters, spent long hours hypnotized by violent video games. So pervasive have these games become that the public now shrugs at the likes of “Grand Theft Auto,” once considered shocking for its anti-social violence. The casual bloodletting in the new “Grand Theft Auto V” is said to be oiled by humor and satire, injecting more confusion into already-confused minds. There is debate on whether these games promote violent behavior. The case that they do seems strong enough to have compelled one video game maker to hire a crack lobbying firm to stop a Senate bill that would sponsor research into the possi-

ble connection. Much research suggests that ordinary people playing violent video games do experience heightened feelings of belligerence, along with higher heart rate and blood pressure. In his own study, Brad Bushman, a professor of communications and psychology at Ohio State University, found that typical college students playing violent games for only 20 minutes a day for three days became more aggressive. Most players don’t act on their anger, because they come to the game in fairly good mental health, Bushman wrote in response to the Navy Yard massacre. “But what about players who already are predisposed to violence?” He added, “Violent video games are just one more factor that may be pushing them toward violence.” America’s mass shootings seem to be about several things. They’re about a culture that bombards people with images of casual homicide, that likes to wave guns, that doesn’t pay enough attention to mental illness. Although mass killings occur in other developed countries, our especially deadly mix of factors may explain why they happen here with grotesque predictability. It’s something toxic in the air.

Although methamphetamine lab seizures and arrests declined nationwide in 2012, it’s far too early to consider the problem solved. Last week, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration provided statistics to The Associated Press that showed 12,694 meth lab incidents were reported around the country last year, down 5.5 percent from the 13,390 reported in 2011. It marked the second straight year that the numbers had declined, as the nation recorded 15,196 For the record meth lab incidents in 2010. However, analysts warn Illinois has more reason that two consecutive years than most states to mainof declining numbers do tain its vigilance against not necessarily constitute this scourge. Our state had a trend. It’s too early to declare that the meth prob- the fifth-highest number of meth lab incidents among lem is going away. Illinois has more reason all states last year with 799. than most states to maintain its vigilance against this scourge. Our state had the fifth-highest number of meth lab incidents among all states last year with 799. While it’s true that the number of “traditional” meth labs being uncovered has been in decline around the country, it’s also true that more meth manufacturers are turning to low-tech methods of “cooking” the drug, such as the so-called “one-pot” or “shake and bake” technique that allows them to make meth in a soda bottle. As dangerous as the traditional meth labs are to occupants of the houses where they are located, particularly children, and neighbors, the portable meth labs have the potential to spread contamination and injury almost anywhere a vehicle or person can go. It’s also worth noting that the DEA says some states already are reporting increases in meth lab seizures and arrests so far in 2013. Illinois has tried to crack down on the meth problem by passing laws that make it more difficult for someone to buy pseudoephedrine, one of the main ingredients in its manufacture, but authorities say the meth makers continue to find ways around such laws, often by using fake IDs. Still, we have little choice but to continue enforcement efforts, as well as programs to treat meth addicts. We need to get meth labs off the streets and out of the small towns, but we won’t be able to incarcerate our way out of this problem. Education, intervention and treatment programs must be improved. The lower numbers of seizures are good news, but it’s far too early to let our guard down. The (Alton) Telegraph

Sayers to withdraw from NFL lawsuit CHICAGO – Hall of Fame running back Gale Sayers wants to withdraw a lawsuit filed last week against the National Football League and helmet maker Riddell that claimed they failed to prevent repeated head injuries, a Chicago lawyer said Sunday. The lawsuit was filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Chicago by attorney John F. Winters. In the lawsuit, the former Bears player claimed he suffers headaches, occasional short-term memory loss and other cognitive deficits because of chronic traumatic encephalopathy. Sayers played for the Bears from 1965 to 1972. Winters told The Associated Press on Sunday a family member contacted him Saturday to say Sayers wanted to withdraw the suit. The Chicago Tribune reported that Sayers and his wife told the newspaper the lawsuit was filed without Sayers’ authorization. Winters said Sayers contacted him Tuesday, unsolicited, and Winters filed the lawsuit on Sayers’ behalf later in the week based on two days of conversations. “I am not in the habit of filing lawsuits without permission,” Winters said. He would not talk about the conversations or disclose which family member called him, citing attorney-client privilege. The lawsuit will be withdrawn in the next couple days, after he ensures that Sayers’ right to future litigation is protected, Winters said. Last month, in a deal with the players association, the NFL agreed to pay more than three-quarters of a billion dollars to settle lawsuits from thousands of former players who developed concussion-related health problems. – Wire report

Running back Cameron Stingily leaps over a teammate Saturday in the second quarter of Northern Illinois hosting Eastern Illinois. The Huskies won 43-39.

Eastern Illinois goes ‘all-in’ Huskies walking ine line with these late comebacks during 43-39 loss to NIU By STEVE NITZ snitz@shawmedia.com DeKALB – Eastern Illinois wanted to go all-in. Dino Babers’ Panthers open their Ohio Valley Conference season next week against Eastern Kentucky. In the grand scheme of things, that contest is more important than Saturday night’s 43-39 loss to Northern Illinois at Huskie Stadium. Still, Babers’ team left it all out on the field Saturday evening. EIU got off to a 20-0 lead, and Babers did not hesitate to roll the dice numerous times. On Eastern’s first drive, Babers went for it on fourth -and-3 from his own 47-yard line. The drive ended when EIU quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo completed a 14-yard touchdown pass to Erik Lora, and the Panthers went

for two. Garoppolo’s pass, however, was incomplete. As Babers put it, his team was all-in. He knew there would have to be some gambles if his squad was going to defeat an FBS team. “Beginning of the week, I asked the football team how they wanted to play this game. They said they wanted to go all-in. And I asked them if you’re sure, we could lose some [players] and it could cost us an OVC championship,” Babers said. “And they said they were sure, ... we weren’t hesitant on how we were going to play it. We played it like a normal game to win. And we just came up short.” EIU was on the road, against a team which had a 21-game on-campus winning streak and played in a BCS bowl game last season. Risks were going to be taken.

See ALL-IN, page B2

The buzz around Football Championship Subdivision teams is real; Northern Illinois found that out firsthand Saturday. While there wasn’t another FCS upset at Huskie Stadium with a 43-39 NIU win, the Huskies certainly had their hands full with an Eastern Illinois team that exposed them again defensively and forced the Huskies into another late-game pressure situation. Although NIU’s BCS bowl game hopes are certainly still intact, the expectations from fans that the Huskies will automatically run the table and return as a BCS buster should be tempered. Second-half comebacks have become all too familiar for NIU as it has consistently been relying on late-game magic. Last year, NIU had late rallies against Toledo, Army and Kansas. This year’s 17-point combined margin of victory over three games doesn’t

VIEWS Ross Jacobson exactly spell dominance, either. If NIU has hopes of getting to another BCS bowl game, the defense can’t continue its slow starts, relying on half-time adjustments, which, to its credit have worked, and the NIU offense to score on almost every possession down the stretch. NIU safety Jimmie Ward said it best, noting that the team had to “start the fight” even though one of the team’s mottos is to finish it. Outside of Fresno State, NIU has the best chance at being a mid-major BCS qualifier. And the Huskies will get another chance to pad the nonconference resume with a road trip to Purdue next weekend.

Perspective on Bears Bears stay unbeaten, from a different angle

top sloppy Steelers By WILL GRAVES The Associated Press

PITTSBURGH – The Bears are unbeaten. The Pittsburgh Steelers can’t stop beating themselves. Major Wright returned an interception 38 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter, and Julius Peppers picked up Ben Roethlisberger’s fumble and raced 42 yards for a score in the fourth quarter as the Bears dropped the reeling Steelers 40-23 on Sunday night. Roethlisberger completed 26 of 41 passes for 406 yards, and threw two touchdowns to Antonio Brown, but the Steelers fell to 0-3 for the first time since 1986 thanks to an avalanche of mistakes. Pittsburgh committed five turnovers, four of which led directly to points by the opportunistic Bears. Jay Cutler passed for 159 yards and

threw a 17-yard touchdown strike to Earl Bennett with just under 6 minutes remaining to give the Bears breathing room after the Steelers trimmed a 21-point deficit to four. The Steelers trailed by three touchdowns in the first half but pulled within 27-23 on Shaun Suisham’s 44-yard field goal with 10:43 to play. The Bears’ offense, which generated little after a 17-point outburst in the first quarter, responded behind Cutler. The quarterback scrambled for 13 yards on third-and-10 to start the drive. Cutler then hit Brandon Marshall for 41 yards on third-and-12 to move into Pittsburgh territory. Facing third-and-5 at the Pittsburgh 17, Cutler found Bennett in the back corner of the end zone.

See BEARS, page B7

They say timing is everything but often perspective and perception have a lot more to do with how we see things and what we believe. The feeling around Chicago all week long was that the Bears prime time tussle with the Steelers on Sunday night was a dangerous spot to be sure, that the Steelers just aren’t the club they used to be and these new Bears under Marc Trestman would do just fine. Then I arrived in Pittsburgh on Saturday to discover all the local “experts” and fans alike seem to believe the Steelers aren’t as bad as their 0-2 record suggests, that the Bears 2-0 record is a bit of a mirage dictated by just a couple plays that could have gone either way and this would be the perfect spot for the

BEARS INSIDER Hub Arkush Steelers to get off the schneid. That’s why we play the games, right? But often folks watching the same game see it completely differently. The view from the stands, the TV screen, the pressbox or the field can each reveal different things, sometimes just because of the eye of the beholder but also at times because each of those views offers a few unique perspectives the others don’t.

NIU FOOTBALL NOTEBOOK

MLB

First Huskie Stadium sellout in 10 years By STEVE NITZ snitz@shawmedia.com DeKALB – Friday, Northern Illinois announced that single-game tickets were no longer available for Saturday’s home opener against Eastern Illinois. The student section seemed more full than normal an hour before kickoff, and more fans piled in 30 minutes before the start of the game. As the first quarter started, the stands filled up. NIU announced the crowd of 23,595 as the first sellout at Huskie Stadium since 2003, when Maryland came to DeKalb for NIU’s home opener. The crowd witnessed a high-scoring, 43-39 NIU win over Eastern Illinois. “It was an emotional game. The crowd gave us a lot of enthusiasm,” NIU safety Jimmie Ward said. “During tough breaks the crowd helped us pull this through.” Eastern Illinois head coach Dino Babers said it was a

tough atmosphere for his team to play in. “I thought the fans, some of them said some weird stuff to me, no doubt, I thought they were super,” he said. “They love their football team and they make a lot of noise, that was really cool. Your fans and your noise level cost us some plays out there.” Tailbacks have big day: Jordan Lynch led the Huskies with 189 rushing yards, but he also had some help from senior tailback Cameron Stingily, who ran for a career-high 134 yards and two touchdowns. Stingily’s backup, Keith Harris Jr., added two touchdowns and ran for 25 yards on six carries. “I give all praise to the offensive line. If they can get me to the second level, third level I feel like I can make a play,” Stingily said. “If I’m getting to the second and third level without getting touched, I feel like it’s at least four yards per carry.” Stingily was a tough guy

to bring down all night, and plowed over a number of EIU defenders. “The guy that was running guys over, got the long (46yard) run, that guy? That guy’s a bull,” Babers said. “That was not fun. There’s a lot of times when you’re an old man, you wish you could go out there and play the game one more time. Not with him running the ball. I was fine just standing on the sideline coaching.” Sebastiano injured: NIU sophomore wide receiver Angelo Sebastiano left the game in the second half after being hit by EIU corner Pete Houlihan, who was flagged and ejected from the game because of the new targeting rule. Carey didn’t want to speculate on Sebastiano’s status before speaking to the training staff. Lynch left the game for a couple of plays after being tackled along the sideline in

the second half, but Carey said he’s fine.

Santacaterina steps in for Lemon: NIU starting outside linebacker Rasheen Lemon was suspended for Saturday’s game because of an unspecified violation of team rules. Carey said the suspension is indefinite. Junior Michael Santacaterina stepped in and led the Huskies with 15 tackles. “I just wanted to go in and do my job,” Santacaterina said. “Just make plays when they came to me. I didn’t want to get out of my gaps, try and do too much.” Sims’ streak snapped: NIU kicker Mathew Sims’ streak of 64 consecutive extra points ended in the first quarter. Sims’ first extra-point attempt bounced off the left upright. Offense, offense, offense: The teams combined for 1,179 yards of total offense, 602 of them coming from the Huskies. NIU ran for 367 yards, while Lynch threw for 235.

NFL

DETROIT – Byron Froese scored his second goal 3:25 into the third period and the Blackhawks held on for a 4-3 victory over the Detroit Red Wings in a preseason game Sunday. Joakim Nordstrom and Garret Ross also scored for the Hawks and Corey Crawford made 30 saves.

NATIONAL CONFERENCE

Fever sweep Sky to move on to Eastern final INDIANAPOLIS – The Fever rolled past rookie of the year Elena Delle Donne and the Sky, 79-57, to complete a two-game sweep of the conference’s top seed. It’s the third consecutive postseason series win over a higher-seeded opponent for the Fever (18-18), including in last year’s Eastern Conference and WNBA finals. The drive for a repeat will continue against either Atlanta or Washington, who play the decisive game in their series tonight. The winner of that series will host Game 1 of the East final Thursday.

Kenseth wins 2nd Chase race at New Hampshire Matt Kenseth has firmly defended the style of his 2003 championship, stating his one-win season in the final year before NASCAR made the move to the playoff-style Chase format was as meaningful as all the titles collected by Jimmie Johnson or Tony Stewart. Kenseth made it 2 for 2 in the Chase, holding off Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Kyle Busch to win Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. He followed his win in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship opener at Chicagoland with his series-high seventh victory of the season. Kenseth made his 500th career start and built a 14-point lead over Busch before the series shifts to Dover. – Wire reports

Quarterback Jordan Lynch carries the ball Saturday in the second quarter of Northern Illinois hosting Eastern Illinois. The Huskies won, 43-39, as Lynch ran for 189 yards.

Coach Carey, Babers have Road to another BCS bowl gambles, risks in common game won’t be easy for NIU • ALL-IN

Continued from page B1 After their first touchdown, the Panthers recovered an onside kick. Garoppolo didn’t waste much time, hitting Adam Drake for a 43-yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage. The Panthers would convert a 4th-and-2 on their next drive, again in their own territory, and scored to go up 20-0. All in all EIU was 2 of 4 on fourth down, including a failed fake punt. “Coming into the game, some fan told me that we were 17-point dogs,” Babers said. “I figured we were going to have to make up the 17 points some kind of way, so I thought

going for it on fourth down a couple of times might be a good idea.” NIU head coach Rod Carey knows where Babers is coming from. His team converted a successful fake punt in the season-opening victory over Iowa, and Carey’s offense had nearly a 75 percent success rate on fourth down last season. The gambles have worked out for NIU recently, and Babers’ risks helped EIU get off to its big lead in a game which featured 1,179 yards of total offense. “They got us with that onside kick. That was a good call by them,” Carey said. “I kind of laughed. We’ve been doing that to people and they did it to us.”

• FINE LINE

Continued from page B1 NIU will likely be favored in every game it plays for the remainder of the regular season, but it won’t be an easy march to Glendale, Ariz. for another BCS bowl game, let alone making it back to Detroit for a fourth consecutive Mid-American Conference title game. The better teams in the MAC, like Ball St. and Toledo, won’t let NIU off the hook as easily as Idaho and Eastern Illinois did. Their defenses have played – and had some success against – Jordan Lynch before. Many thought the Idaho result might serve as a wake-

up call that NIU will get every team’s best punch. With their success over the past three seasons, the Huskies are where every MAC team wants to be. Maybe it takes two close games against scrappy underdogs for things to really sink in, even with managing to escape with an unblemished record. But if not, Purdue might do what Idaho and Eastern Illinois couldn’t. The Boilermakers may be the ones who finish the fight.

BRAVES 5, CUBS 2

WHITE SOX 6, TIGERS 3

Sox bounce back for win Braves beat Cubs, NL East By NOAH TRISTER The Associated Press DETROIT – A day after perhaps their most embarrassing loss of the year, the White Sox got a lift from a rookie making his fourth career start. Erik Johnson pitched into the seventh inning, and the Sox beat Detroit, 6-3, to end any chance of the Tigers clinching the AL Central title in their home finale Sunday. Detroit needed a win and a Cleveland loss to wrap up the division in the Tigers’ final scheduled home game, and neither happened. The 23-year-old Johnson (22) allowed two runs and nine hits in 62/3 innings, and the Sox held on a day after blowing a

six-run lead in the ninth inning against the Tigers. “I thought I threw the ball well and I had run support early,” Johnson said. “Every start, I try to build on the [last] one.” Anibal Sanchez (14-8) yielded four runs and eight hits in five innings, taking his first loss since July 19. Prince Fielder homered for the Tigers. Detroit was without slugger Miguel Cabrera, who has been bothered by groin soreness. The Tigers gave themselves a chance to clinch at Comerica Park with a stirring comeback the previous night, when they scored six runs in the ninth inning to tie the game before winning 7-6 in 12.

By JAY COHEN The Associated Press CHICAGO – While the Atlanta Braves jumped around in a circle near the mound at Wrigley Field, the Cubs packed up and trudged off to their clubhouse. It was the latest in a long series of difficult images from another losing season for the Cubs. Edwin Jackson served up home runs to Freddie Freeman and Andrelton Simmons, and the Cubs went on to a 5-2 loss that touched off an NL East tile celebration for Atlanta. “We have a lot of close games and we just haven’t been able to come back or rally at home,” Cubs manager Dale Sveum said.

The game was in the sixth inning when Washington lost 4-2 to Miami, giving the Braves their first division crown in eight years. There were a few high-fives in Atlanta’s dugout when the Marlins won, and a couple of Braves fans did the tomahawk chop in the stands. Manager Fredi Gonzalez high-fived a fan as he made his way to the dugout after a lineup change, and the celebration really picked up when Craig Kimbrel finished for his major league-best 49th save. The Braves poured out of the dugout and bullpen for the on-field portion of the victory party at the 99-year-old ballpark. “You don’t want to see someone celebrate on your field but it was inevitable anyways since Washington lost,” Sveum said.

SATURDAY’S PREP ROUNDUP

Hiawatha beats Westminster DeKalb’s Schrader takes 1st Christian for third win in a row at Eddington Invitational By TRAVIS ZUELLIG sports@daily-chronicle.com ELGIN – Only leading by one point at the end of the first half, Hiawatha knew it needed to turn it on in the second half against Westminster Christian. “The biggest thing we told them [at halftime] is that they needed to pull it together and start playing football the way they have in the last couple of weeks,”Hiawatha coach Sean Donnelly said. “And, it was important that they don’t let this slip through their hands because they would regret it come the end of the year.” Hiawatha (3-1) came out fast and hard in the second half, scoring on its first three drives to put the game away in a 40-27 victory over the Warriors (0-4) in Elgin. Senior quarterback Mike Mercado had a hand in five of the six Hiawatha touchdowns. “In the first half, we did our best to score. We could have scored more and held them

more,” Mercado said. “In the second half, we came out and pulled our heads out of our rear ends and just showed them how we play Hawk football.” Westminster went threeand-out in their opening drive of the second half and gave Hiawatha great field position. The Hawks took no time putting more points on the board. On the fifth play of the drive, Mercado found Allen Letterer in the end zone for a nine-yard touchdown pass. On Hiawatha’s next possession, Mercado’s 25-yard touchdown run gave the Hawks a 14-point lead. On the ensuing kickoff, Braden Watson recovered a pooch kick for Hiawatha and Mercado capped a nine-play 39-yard drive with a five-yard touchdown run that took more than five minutes off the clock and made the score 34-13. “Something in there just clicked and then we turned it on,” Mercado said. “The motivation kicked in and we did

the rest.” Hiawatha’s last drive ended in Letterer’s second touchdown reception of the game and his fourth of the season. Mercado finished the game with 114 passing yards and two passing touchdowns, as well as, rushing for 61 yards and three touchdowns. “He played inspired,” said Donnelly. “Mike is our unquestioned leader ... . We are going to go as far as Mike can carry us. It is a big burden that we placed on him, but so far he has been able to step up and I know he does not want to fail. He wants this to be a special season.” Hiawatha will travel to Ottawa to play Marquette (4-0) in a big Northeastern Athletic Conference game. “We are all family and we pick each other’s heads up,” Mercado said. “I couldn’t have done it without any of those guys out there. I respect every single person on this team. We are all family.”

Rose ready to lead Bulls again By ANDREW SELIGMAN The Associated Press CHICAGO – The “MVP! MVP!” chants rained down on Derrick Rose just as they did before he was injured. Now that he’s poised to return, the Chicago Bulls star figures to hear them again on a regular basis. Rose believes he’s ready to dominate again and help his team contend for a championship. With training camp set to open this week, the former MVP point guard said there are no lingering issues with his surgically repaired left knee. “Who knows when I’m

going to get my rhythm?” he said. “It might take one game. It might take five games, 10 games. Who knows? I think me having that relationship with my teammates and them knowing that and not just depending on me right away, just knowing that I’m just trying to fit in with them, do my job where my job is to come in, run the game and get them open shots and play aggressive. I think the guys on the team know that. And me knowing that, too, I think it’s going to be a smooth year, a smooth process.” Asked if he has any doubts he’ll regain his MVP form, Rose said, “No.” “I put so much into my

craft,” he said. “I’m working hard. I think I’m one of the hardest workers in the NBA, if not the hardest worker. I think you should see it in my game when I step on the court.” Rose spoke Sunday before a youth event at the United Center to promote next month’s launch of his latest signature adidas basketball shoe and apparel. He hasn’t played since he crumbled to the floor with a torn ACL near the end of Game 1 of the 2012 playoff opener against Philadelphia, an injury that sent the top-seeded Bulls toward a first-round playoff exit and put their championship hopes on hold.

Child of murdered mom should know truth Dear Abby: My granddaughter was murdered by her boyfriend. They had an 18-month-old daughter, “Bella.” All three were living together when he shot her, but we don’t know what room Bella was in when it happened. Another family member (I’ll call her Lucy) took Bella into her home, and Bella calls her Mom. Lucy has been taking Bella to the prison to visit her father, but has told her he is her uncle. I told Lucy I thought it would be better to wait until Bella is old enough to understand, THEN tell her what happened and let her decide whether she wants to visit her father. Bella went into the closet one day and came out holding a T-shirt with her mother’s

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips picture on it, asking, “Who is this?” Lucy’s only response was, “You know you aren’t allowed in my closet. Take that back!” She never answered the question. I have a framed photo of Bella’s mother on my wall. The last time Bella was here, I noticed her looking out of the corner of her eye and scowling at the picture. I was the only one who noticed. Bella is now 4, and I can’t accept that Lucy thinks it’s OK to lie to her. I feel it should be Bella’s decision whether to visit her dad. Am I wrong? How should this be handled so Bella isn’t

traumatized any more than need be? Because of these incidents, I’m almost convinced she should have some kind of counseling, but perhaps she’s too young. This is why I desperately need advice, in the best interest of the child. – Bella’s Great-Grandma Dear Great-Grandma: Is Lucy a member of your family or the murderous boyfriend’s? I find it hard to comprehend that a family member of the victim would drag a toddler to a prison to visit the lowlife who killed her mother. I do not think it is healthy to lie to children. This situation will explode when Bella finally learns that the woman she has always called “Mom” isn’t her mother, and the man in the orange jumpsuit not only isn’t her uncle but killed her birth mother. That poor

girl won’t know whom she can believe and could have trust issues that affect her relationships for the rest of her life. Does she need counseling now? No. But will she when she finds out about the deception? You bet! Dear Abby: What is your opinion about females and car maintenance? My mother raised me alone and taught me to be independent. She would not let me drive an automatic car until I had mastered driving a standard (stick shift). I was also not allowed to drive until I was able to perform basic, essential tasks – changing a tire, checking the oil and maintaining all fluid levels. I am thankful and appreciate that I have these skills. However, I know many women today who can’t perform

these tasks and would rather make it a “man’s job.” I think every woman should have these skills. Where do you stand? – Independent Lady in Florida Dear Independent Lady: I stand beside you. There is no guarantee that a woman will have a man to “take care” of her – in fact, the opposite is more likely to be true. However, if she can’t learn the basics of taking care of her car, she should be sure that she’s a member of AAA.

Digital rectal exams are medically useful Dear Dr. K: I’m a healthy man in my 50s. I dread having a physical because of the digital rectal exam. What can the doctor even tell by doing this? Is it really necessary? Dear Reader: The digital rectal exam isn’t fun – I speak as both a doctor and patient. But it is a risk-free way to check for abnormalities of the anus, rectum and prostate gland. Your rectum is the last few inches of your bowel, just above the anus. As you know, during the exam, your doctor inserts a gloved and lubricated finger into your rectum. You may lie on your side on an exam table with your knees pulled up toward your chest. If that position isn’t comfortable, you can have the exam

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff performed while you stand, bent over the exam table. As the doctor’s finger enters, you feel a pressure, but it is not painful unless you have an abnormality in the anus, such as an inflamed hemorrhoid. The exam takes about one to two minutes. The exam allows your doctor to feel the wall of your rectum, checking for unusual lumps, swellings or tenderness. In men, the doctor will feel the prostate gland through the wall of the rectum. He or she will check

for suspicious nodules, as well as for abnormalities in the gland’s size or shape. (I’ve put an illustration of the procedure on my website.) Doctors use the digital rectal exam both to evaluate symptoms and to screen for diseases even when you don’t have symptoms. The symptoms that prompt a rectal exam are those that affect the digestive system, genitals and urinary tract. For example, a doctor may do the exam to check the prostate in a man who complains of frequent urination. The digital rectal exam is useful for both men and women. It screens for disease by identifying potentially cancerous masses in the rectum,

prostate or female genital organs. Examination of the female organs also requires a second finger in the vagina and a hand gently pushing on the abdomen. The other way the digital rectal exam screens for disease is to test a small stool sample for unsuspected blood. A person can have a small amount of bleeding in the digestive tract that doesn’t show up as visible blood in the bowel movement. Small amounts of bleeding are detected by chemical tests of the bowel movement. Many different conditions in the digestive tract can cause bleeding. Some are very serious, such as cancer. Others are not serious, such

as hemorrhoids. So finding signs of blood in the bowel movement doesn’t tell the doctor what’s wrong; it just signals that there’s a problem that needs to be diagnosed. The digital rectal exam cannot feel most cancers of the intestine: They occur too far up in the large intestine for a finger to reach. Colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy and barium enemas (performed less often these days) can see cancers that the finger cannot feel.

Teacher refuses to give out A’s to freshmen Dr. Wallace: I am in the ninth grade and, so far, I’m getting all A’s except for my English class. I have never received any grade lower than a B since I was in the seventh grade. Our English teacher said that she doesn’t give A’s to freshmen students because they’ll think she’s an easy grader. I talked to her, and she said I was a good student, but I’m a freshman and the best I can do is to earn a B+. My mom is upset and wants to talk to our principal, but I’m not sure that’s a good idea.

You advocate abstinence for a number of reasons – pregnancy, sexually transmitted diseases, loss of self-esteem, immoral act and a number of other no-nos.

8CROSSWORD

One loser good; two losers bad W.C. Fields said, “After two days in the hospital, I took a turn for the nurse.” This deal would put some declarers into the hospital, metaphorically speaking. South is in four hearts. West leads the diamond two. East wins with his ace and returns the diamond eight. After ruffing, how should declarer proceed? South’s three-heart rebid would usually advertise 14-16 high-card points, but this hand has seven clearcut playing tricks, making it easily strong enough for the jump. Do not be locked into high-card points; always think about winners. North had a borderline raise, but we love to try for a game bonus, especially when vulnerable. South has four potential losers: one spade, one diamond and two clubs. He has only nine immediate winners: one spade, seven hearts and one club. Declarer must get two club tricks. Some players would go that far, draw trumps, cross to dummy with a spade, and play a club to their queen. But when the finesse lost, they would go down one and complain about being unlucky. However, that was only a 50 percent line. There was a 63 percenter available. Along with East’s having the club king, South should also try to find East with the club jack and 10. Declarer should cash his heart ace, play a heart to dummy’s king, then lead a club to his nine. Here, it pulls out the king, ending South’s problem. But if West could have won the trick with the 10 or jack, declarer would have returned to dummy with a spade and played a club to his queen, losing nothing over finessing the queen on the first round.

NFL ROUNDUP

Panthers dominate Giants The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Cam Newton threw three touchdown passes and ran for another, and Carolina sacked Eli Manning seven times as the Panthers handed Tom Coughlin his worst defeat as coach of the New York Giants, 38-0 Sunday. It was the largest margin of victory in Panthers history. The Panthers (1-2) allowed Newton to run out of the read option, which helped open up an offense that had been mostly stagnant this season. Newton had 223 yards passing and threw two touchdown passes to Brandon LaFell and one to Ted Ginn Jr. He ran for 45 yards and his first TD of the season. The Giants are in trouble: Of the 161 teams that have started the season 0-3 since 1978, only five made the NFL playoffs, according to STATS LLC. The Giants came in with only 73 yards rushing in their first two games and managed just 60 yards on the ground. Manning, under pressure all day long, finished 12 of 23 for 119 yards with two interceptions. Colts 27, 49ers 7: At San Francisco, Andrew Luck threw for 164 yards and ran for a 6-yard touchdown while facing college coach Jim Harbaugh for the first time, and Indianapolis defeated San Francisco. Patriots 23, Buccaneers 3: At Foxborough, Mass., Tom Brady threw two touchdown passes to Kenbrell Thompkins to lead New England to a one-sided win over Tampa Bay. Saints 31, Cardinals 7: At New Orleans, Drew Brees passed for three scores and scrambled for New Orleans’ first touchdown rushing of the season in a victory over Arizona. Cowboys 31, Rams 7: At Arlington, Texas, DeMarco Murray ran for 175 yards and a touchdown two years after torching St. Louis with a franchise record as a rookie, and Tony Romo threw for three scores in Dallas’ rout. Ravens 30, Texans 9: At Baltimore, Daryl Smith had a 37-yard interception return for a TD, Tandon Doss took a punt 82 yards for another score, and Baltimore smothered Houston’s high-powered offense. Titans 20, Charger 17: At Nashville, Tenn., Jake Locker helped Tennessee end a skid against the San Diego that spanned two states and two decades. Seahawks 45, Jaguars 17: At Seattle, Russell Wilson matched his career high with four touchdown passes – two each to Sidney Rice and Zach Miller – and Seattle overwhelmed Jacksonville. Dolphins 27, Falcons 23: At Miami Gardens, Fla., Ryan Tannehill lobbed a 1-yard touchdown pass to rookie Dion Sims with 38 seconds left, and unbeaten Miami rallied past Atlanta. Jets 27, Bills 20: At East Rutherford, N.J., Geno Smith threw two touchdown passes, including a go-ahead 69-yarder to Santonio Holmes in the fourth quarter, and the New York Jets overcame a team-record 20 penalties to hang on and beat Buffalo in an ugly game.

3 Stars Major Wright Wright made two gamechanging plays by creating turnovers. In the second quarter, he picked off a Ben Roethlisberger pass and returned it 38 yards for a Bears touchdown. On the Steelers’ opening drive of the second half, Wright’s hit on Felix Jones forced a fumble, recovered by Henry Melton.

3 AND OUT Jordan Mills The rookie had a few huge run blocks to help spring Matt Forte. On Forte’s first-quarter touchdown, Mills put a Steelers defender in the dirt. He also put a bruising block on Steelers inside linebacker Lawrence Timmons, which created a huge hole for Forte to go 55 yards in the first.

NFC NORTH ROUNDUP

Bengals rally past Packers

Earl Bennett He missed all the preseason with a concussion and got his pay docked, but Bennett came up with the play of the game when he kept both feet in on a 17-yard touchdown catch with 5:48 to go in the game, giving the Bears a 34-23 lead. Jay Cutler made a perfect throw.

The ASSOCIATED PRESS

3 things that worked

1

Taking it away – The Bears scored two touchdowns on turnovers — Wright’s pick-six and Julius Peppers fumble-recovery touchdown, and then got another score following D.J. WIlliams’ forced fumble, recovered by James Anderson.

2

Third-down defense – Another early bugaboo for the Bears’ defense through two weeks had been getting off the field on third down, but thanks to some blitzing as well as a couple Steelers drops, the Bears’ nickel defense held up. In the first half, the Steelers converted only one first down on six third-down opportunities.

3

Clutch play – Maybe Cutler just likes the pressure. The Steelers mounted a big second-half comeback, and the offense had been brutal since the first quarter, but with the momentum clearly in the Steelers’ corner, Cutler made the two big throws to put Pittsburgh away.

3 that didn’t

1

Defensive line pressure – At times it looked better, and we saw more of Peppers than we did in the first two games, but several times this unit failed to bring Ben Roethlisberger down when given the chance. In the second half, it became apparent the Bears needed to blitz to create any kind of pressure, and that’s when the Steelers’ passing game found success.

2

Safety coverage – Too often this season, the Bears have given up big plays with either safety Chris Conte or Major Wright coming for help a hair late. The Steelers had little issue gaining big yards up the seam or down the sideline, where good safety coverage may have made the difference.

3

Goal-line offense – A little nit-picking here, because eventually they did score, but the Bears needed four chances to score from 1st-and-goal on the one-yard line. Michael Bush had three rushes before crossing the goal line, and a play-action pass to Martellus Bennett fell incomplete.

BEARS NOTEBOOK

Two sides to Bears’ blitzes By KEVIN FISHBAIN

1

2

The Bears had forced a punt in the second quarter, with a 24-3 lead, but Anthony Walters committed a brutal roughing-the-kicker personal foul. A couple plays later, Roethlisberger hit Antonio Brown for a touchdown, cutting the Bears lead to 14. The Bears could have put Pittsburgh away, but Walters’ penalty gave them life, and they took advantage.

3

Before Bennett got the big touchdown to put the Bears up 11, Cutler found Brandon Marshall deep down the left sideline for a 41-yard gain. Marshall showed his impressive body control to haul in the catch on thirdand-12. If that fell incomplete, the Steelers would have gotten the ball back down four with plenty of time on the clock.

Now what? Record: 3-0 It means: To this point, the Bears are flawless. Regardless of how they got there, it really doesn’t matter. First place is first place. What’s next: The Bears travel to Detroit to face the 2-1 Lions, with a shot at pushing the Bears’ NFC North lead to two games.

kfishbain@shawmedia.com PITTSBURGH – The question seemed simple – if you can’t get to the quarterback, why not blitz more? “We’ll blitz when we need to, and when we want to,” defensive coordinator Mel Tucker said Wednesday. “The blitzes complement the base and vice versa.” The Bears needed to put pressure on Ben Roethlisberger, and clearly wanted to in Sunday night’s game against the Steelers. Tucker called for several blitzes, whether it meant sending linebackers James Anderson and D.J. Williams or bringing a defensive back, like Chris Conte or Isaiah Frey. Major Wright’s interception return for a touchdown and D.J. Williams’ forced fumble both came thanks in part to blitzes. Williams stood out in the first half in his sixth career game against the

Steelers. The veteran had two sacks – the same amount as the entire team in the first two games – including one that forced a turnover. The strategy was far from 100 percent effective, though. Roethlisberger still made the Bears pay a few times for bringing the house. His big 33-yard touchdown pass in the first half to Antonio Brown came when the Steelers picked up Conte’s blitz. Another side to the Bears needing to bring five, six or seven players in the pass rush is that the defensive line still wasn’t able to create pressure on its own, and Roethlisberger seemed to figure things out after halftime. Calm Cutler: A common conversation topic during the week was a more calm, relaxed Jay Cutler, and he looked it on the Bears first drive of the game. In hostile territory on prime-time television – something that has often left Cutler and the Bears’ offense flummoxed – the Bears marched down the field, with Cutler completing 8-of-10 passes, four of

them to Alshon Jeffery. They had to settle for a field goal, but it set the tone early. Giving up the big one: The defense continued to allow explosive plays, and Sunday night those came against one of the league’s worst offenses through two weeks. Roethlisberger’s arm strength, combined with the speed of receiver Antonio Brown, burned the Bears’ secondary one too many times, including for a pair of touchdowns. Five different Steelers receivers had a catch go for 20 yards or longer. Neutralizing Hester: A week after breaking his own record for kickoffreturn yards in a game, Hester didn’t have an opportunity to directly take over the game – but his presence helped in field position. Zoltan Mesko averaged 29.5 yards on his first two punts of the game. When Hester did have a chance on a short kickoff in the first half, he tried to dance away but was stuffed deep in Bears territory. Injuries: The Bears suffered a potentially huge loss when Henry

Melton was carted off the field in the fourth quarter with a knee injury. Even though Nate Collins has played well and Melton has been slow to start the year, he is a Pro Bowler, and the depth behind Collins is paperthin. Melton will be a free agent after the season. ... Zack Bowman replaced Charles Tillman in the fourth quarter. According to a sideline report, Tillman had a groin issue, keeping him out of the game. Quick hits: Forte limped off the field with trainers late in the third quarter with what appeared to be a lower right leg injury. He returned for the next series. … The offense didn’t seem to have much trouble operating in the noise of Heinz Field, but according to the radio broadcast, Cutler was having trouble hearing plays in his helmet. ... Michael Bush got only six snaps in Week 2, but short-yardage situations gave him more chances to run, although he couldn’t get much against the Steelers’ front.

Depending on what you hope to see, sidelines can be perfect spot to see game, or the worst Continued from page B1 This is my day job, putting words to paper and out in cyberspace but I work nights as well. Specifically Sunday nights when eight-to-10 weeks during the NFL season you will hear me as the sideline reporter on Westwood One’s national radio broadcast of the Sunday Night Game of the Week.

That’s where I was for Bears-Steelers. Depending on what you hope to see, the sidelines can be a perfect spot to watch a game, or the worst view there is. Why do coaches when asked questions about a game defer to the tape before they can answer. There are things they just can’t see from the field. The field level view from the sidelines is an outstanding perspective from which to view one-on-one matchups at the line of scrimmage, ball - carriers efforts and

moves in the hole, what they see directly in front of them as they make split-second decisions and the pass rush collapsing on a quarterback as well as blitz pickups by running backs and tight ends. But there is no view at all of special teams, the routes receivers are running, blocking downfield and defensive backs responsibilities in zone coverages or often even how they do in man-to-man situations. It’s also extremely difficult to evaluate

linebacker play with all the congestion around them while an overhead view from any of the three other perspectives tells a great deal more. Of course, the best thing about being on the field and with the two teams is eavesdropping on the communications between players, coaches, and players and coaches during the course of the game. An NFL rule prohibits me from quoting any of those conversations on the air while the game is being played, but the

knowledge is invaluable in analyzing, reporting on and writing about the game afterward. It’s also why I can tell you for a fact I’ll know more about these 2013 Bears coming out of Pittsburgh, win or lose, than I did going in. I have to run now to head down to the field – where few of us in the media will be – to talk with the players and coaches on those units and learn what to expect and where to focus as the game unfolds.

Unfortunately it’s impossible to write from the field during the game and still hit our print deadlines for the paper but my buddy Kevin Fishbain will do a great job of that for you from the pressbox. After the game I’ll be able to tell you more than just what happened, I’ll tell you why, how much was planned and how much was accident, who really won the physical matchups and a whole lot more about where this Bears team is really at.

Officials ruled the pass was incomplete, but the play was overturned after replays showed Bennett deftly dragged his right foot before sliding out of bounds. Pittsburgh tried to get back into the game but Lance Briggs stripped Roethlisberger, and Peppers picked up the ball. The veteran defensive end followed a parade of blockers down the sideline for Chicago’s second defensive score of the night and third in two weeks. The Bears rode a pair of fourth-quarter comebacks to a 2-0 start. A rally wouldn’t be required this time after the Steelers continued to bumble their way through a miserable September. Roethlisberger’s second interception on a late stat-padding drive was Pittsburgh’s ninth turnover through three games. The Steelers defense, meanwhile, hasn’t recorded a takeaway through 12 quarters. It’s a recipe that rarely leads to victory. Chicago’s defense isn’t quite the snarling force it was when recently retired linebacker Brian Urlacher was running things, but the Bears make up for their lack of bark with a pretty feisty bite. When opponents get loose with the ball, the Bears pounce.

Lions 27, Redskins 20: At Landover, Md., Matthew Stafford completed 25 of 42 passes for 385 yards with two touchdowns and one interception, and Calvin Johnson and Nate Burleson both had 100 yards receiving for Detroit, which beat Washington on the road for the first time. The Lions (2-1) ended a 21game streak against the Redskins, the second-longest in NFL history. Detroit’s last win away from home in the series came in 1935 against the Boston Redskins, two years before the move to Washington. Browns 31, Vikings 27: At Minneapolis, Jordan Cameron caught three touchdown passes, including the go-ahead grab in the back of the end zone with 51 seconds left, and Cleveland kept Minnesota winless. Third-stringer Brian Hoyer threw for three scores for the Browns (1-2), the latest team to torch Minnesota’s depleted secondary. He overcame three interceptions to throw for 321 yards, going 30 for 54. Josh Gordon had 10 catches for 146 yards and a touchdown in his season debut, and Cameron had six receptions for 66 yards.

Pair of fourth-quarter comebacks key Bears win • BEARS

Before his touchdown run, in which he helicoptered into the endzone, Forte converted a third-and-9 to get the Bears in position. The offensive line gave Cutler the time, he checked down to Forte in the flat, and Brandon Marshall made an open-field block to help get the first down.

CINCINNATI – Terence Newman returned a fumble 58 yards for a touchdown with 3:47 left, rallying Cincinnati past Green Bay in a game of wild momentum swings set up by nonstop turnovers. Each team gave it away four times. Each team returned a fumble for a touchdown – M.D. Jennings ran one back for Green Bay (1-2). The Bengals blew a 14-point lead, and the Packers let a 16-point lead get away in the second half. The Bengals (2-1) finished it off when Michael Johnson batted down Aaron Rodgers’ fourth-down pass at the Cincinnati 20-yard line with 1:21 left, ending a subpar showing for the quarterback. The Bengals defense made the difference as Rodgers was 26 of 43 for 244 yards with a touchdown, but was sacked four times and threw two interceptions. Cincinnati’s Andy Dalton was 20 of 28 for 235 yards with two touchdowns, an interception and a fumble that Jennings returned 24 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter, sparking Green Bay’s comeback.

The mistakes started early. Pittsburgh turned it over twice in the first half. D.J. Williams stripped Roethlisberger in the first quarter, leading to a 5-yard touchdown run by Matt Forte. Chicago was up 17-3 midway through the second quarter when Roethlisberger threw off his back foot in the face of a blitz. The bail sailed into the hands of Wright, who sprinted down the sideline for a touchdown to give the Bears a commanding 21-point lead. The score marked the second straight week and the 10th time since the start of the 2012 season the Bears returned an interception for a touchdown, easily the most in the NFL. The Steelers, looking to avoid their first 0-3 start since Hall of Fame coach Chuck Noll was in the twilight of his career, responded with a 33-yard touchdown pass from Roethlisberger to Brown with 6:35 left in the half to give Pittsburgh life. It didn’t last long. Wright jarred the ball loose from Felix Jones. Henry Milton recovered and Robbie Gould’s second field goal pushed Chicago’s lead to 27-10. Pittsburgh, which came in ranked 31st in the league in total offense, finally got going. Brown made a onehanded grab in the back of the end zone to get the Steelers within 27-20. Suisham’s field goal pulled them within four before the Bears put the game away.
