Irongate plan gets first approval Development still needs DeKalb’s approval on second reading By CHRIS BURROWS cburrows@shawmedia.com DeKALB – Irongate, a 1,200-unit housing development proposed for the city’s northside, appears to have gained the support from DeKalb City Council members that it needs, but final

approval hasn’t been granted yet. In a 6-2 vote at Monday’s City Council meeting, the proposed subdivision and its associated annexation agreement passed on first reading and will come back for the final sign-off from the council at its next meeting. Annex-

ation agreements require six “yes” votes. Third Ward Alderwoman Kristen Lash and 1st Ward Alderman David Jacobson voted against the proposal. On July 22, when the council last voted directly on the proposed subdivision, which would occupy 458 acres of

land located between Bethany and Dresser roads near DeKalb High School, the vote was split, 4-4. Since then, the project’s developer, Shodeen, has worked with the park district and the school district to address concerns that both had with the plan. On Monday, the City

Council reviewed those revisions and signed off with minor changes. Fourth Ward Alderman Bob Snow captured the sentiment of the majority. “I think we need to ensure that there is a steady, controlled increase in housing in DeKalb,” he said. “Is it a

gamble? Perhaps, but it’s a gamble with the developer’s money – not the city’s money. If there’s any hope of keeping taxes lower ... it provides that steady growth that will help keep taxes down.” Sixth Ward Alderman Dave Baker previously had voted against Irongate, but owner agreements that

WASHINGTON – The number of immigrants crossing the border illegally into the U.S. appears to be on the rise again after dropping during the recession. The total number of immigrants living in this country unlawfully edged up from 11.3 million in 2009 to 11.7 million last year, with those from countries other than Mexico at an apparent all-time high, according to a report released Monday by the Pew Research Center’s Hispanic Trends Project. The change is within the margin of error, and there will be a more precise census measure released later this year. Still, based in part on other factors such as increased U.S. border apprehensions, the sharp decline

Kiesgen, 28, and Gorham, 75, are both being featured in “Diane,” the national magazine published by the chain of women’s fitness clubs. Gorham was featured in a section called “Body Love” in September, and Kiesgen will be featured on the magazine’s October cover. “I’m so, so proud of them,” said Diane Kennett, owner of the Sycamore franchise. “They inspire everyone they meet and everyone who comes

Who will be featured on “Diane,” the national magazine published by Curves in here.” Gorham remembers the date she first entered Curves – Nov. 11, 2010. Walking through the door was one of the hardest things she had done, she said, but at 72, she had high blood

pressure and Type 2 diabetes. She had lost 32 pounds on her own by making diet changes and walking, but her progress had stalled. “I was looking at my future,” Gorham said. “I had to

turn my life around. ... My little grandson – he’s 5 years old now – inspired me. I lost the [first] 30 pounds when he was born.” Since joining Curves, Gorham has lost an additional 68 pounds, for a total weight loss of 100 pounds to date. She has dropped 61¾ inches – only ¾-inch less than her height of 5 feet 2½ inches. She said she enjoys going to see her cardiologist and general practitioner now, because the doctors are constantly surprised at the changes in her health. She has also been able to reduce the amount of medication she takes. “I can walk three miles now. I used to look when parking the car how close I could

Abolitionists deserve grand memorials

Copyright 2013 Published daily by Shaw Media.

DeKALB COUNTY LIFE Barry Schrader Nancy Beasley says she doesn’t necessarily condone civil disobedience and has never taken part in a protest demonstration, but she speaks and writes eloquently about DeKalb County’s most notable lawbreakers – abolitionists deacon David West, Dr. Horatio Page and Jesse Kellogg, among others. Beasley recently completed a 10-year project, publishing her book “The Underground Railroad in DeKalb County, Illinois,” and delivered her first speech here on it last week before a spellbound crowd of more than 100 people. After her talk, people lined up to obtain an autographed copy, and their comments were full of praise. Seldom does history stir such feelings at local gatherings, but the subject was close to home, involving DeKalb County pioneer families and prominent clergy, farmers and elected officials who risked their reputations and even jail to help fleeing African-American slaves pass through northern Illinois to find freedom in Canada. As Beasley explained to her audience, the story of abolitionists and their brave deeds in DeKalb County had gone unreported and unrecorded in most history books over the years. “I thought it was an area of DeKalb County history that had not been thoroughly examined,” Beasley said, “… and found all these bits and pieces.” She had started out with the intention of writing a history of the Sycamore Federated Church, a successor to the First Congregational Church and the Universalist Church, but found so much intriguing history in those 1840s handwritten records that this book evolved, detailing a much bigger story of what occurred in those early days in this county. Beasley found that other churches, such as Mayfield’s Wesleyan Methodist (now Mayfield Congregational

I won’t reveal more details from her book, so people will need to purchase it or borrow a copy from their local library, but what she shared with her audience could be the seed for the start of a movement to recognize these neglected historical figures in our past. How many of you were told Underground Railroad stories in local schools or Sunday school classes? How much did teachers dwell on the anti-slavery movement, and who has even heard the names West, Kellogg, Page or Dr. Ellsworth Rose, Agrippa Dow or deacon Charles Smith? My point is, we need to honor the memory and deeds of these pioneers, and not just leave them on library shelves. In the past few years we have erected statues or are in the process of recognizing modern-day icons such as Sycamore coach Pete Johnson,

DeKalb bandleader Dee Palmer and “Mr. Pumpkin” Wally Thurow, but shouldn’t our children and future generations also have physical reminders of the daring abolitionists? Maybe it will fall on the shoulders of today’s clergy, or the DeKalb County Historical-Genealogical Society, to come up with an appropriate memorial. David West certainly deserves more than the crumbling little headstone in Elmwood Cemetery where his name is obliterated and no cemetery records survive to detail his birth and death or those of his two wives and sister. Let’s hope that Nancy Beasley’s efforts will inspire some of us to implant their heroics in the minds of coming generations.

8 TODAY’S TALKER

Sales of new iPhones off to fast start The ASSOCIATED PRESS SAN FRANCISCO – Gadget lovers still can’t resist the iPhone’s seductive call, even amid a bevy of enticing lower-priced alternatives that offer similar features. In a Monday announcement, Apple Inc. said it sold 9 million units of its topof-the-line iPhone 5S and less-expensive iPhone 5C during their first three days on sale. That trounced the performance of last year’s model, the iPhone 5, which sold 5 million units in its opening weekend. The initial sales figures for Apple’s latest iPhone models provided the latest testament to the product’s enduring appeal more than six years after the debut of the first iPhone triggered a mobile computing revolution. The iPhone 5S and 5C’s quick start

also surpassed analyst forecasts that predicted Apple would sell somewhere from 6 million to 8 million models during the first weekend. “The demand for the new iPhones has been incredible,” Apple CEO Tim Cook crowed in a statement. As part of the company’s effort to drum up interest in its most profitable product, Cook made an early-morning appearance at an Apple store in Palo Alto, Calif. on Friday when the new iPhones first went on sale. Monday’s positive news helped generate more interest in Apple’s stock. The shares gained $23.23, or 5 percent, to close at $490.64. Despite that rally, Apple’s stock price remains slightly below where it stood before the Cupertino, Calif. company’s Sept. 10 unveiling of its latest iPhones.

The downturn reflects concerns that the new phones won’t be enough to reverse a slowdown in Apple’s revenue growth that has been brought on by tougher competition from Samsung Electronics and others. Apple’s rivals have been gaining market share by selling less expensive phones running on Google Inc.’s free Android software. Those nagging worries are the main reason that Apple’s market value has sagged by about 30 percent, or $200 billion, since last year’s release of the iPhone 5. Part of this weekend’s higher iPhone sales volume stemmed from Apple’s decision to make the latest models available on a broader scale than in past years. For instance, this marked the first time that a new iPhone has gone on sale in China at the same time that the product also launched in the U.S.

Report: Environmental chemicals a pregnancy risk The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – From mercury to pesticides, Americans are exposed daily to environmental chemicals that could harm reproductive health, the nation’s largest groups of obstetricians and fertility specialists said Monday. The report urges doctors to push for stricter environmental policies to better identify and reduce exposure to chemicals that prove truly risky. But it’s likely to scare pregnant women in the meantime. That’s because during the first

prenatal visit, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists wants doctors to ask mothers-tobe about their exposure to different chemicals. They’re also supposed to teach women how to avoid some considered most worrisome during pregnancy. “What we’re trying to get is the balance between awareness and alarmist,” said Dr. Jeanne Conry, president of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Specialists with ACOG and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine examined research about

industrial chemicals and pollutants that people can absorb from the air, water, food and everyday products. Few chemicals hit the market with good information about safe levels – something the groups hope to change. But certain chemicals are linked to infertility, miscarriages, birth defects and other problems, the committee said. Risks are greatest for women with high on-the-job exposure. So doctors should ask about workplaces during that first prenatal visit, the committee advised. But the report also cited research

suggesting virtually every pregnant woman is exposed to at least 43 different chemicals. It’s unclear how many matter, but some can reach the fetus. For example, mercury pollution builds up in certain fish, and when eaten by a mother-to-be, can damage her unborn baby’s developing brain. Prenatal exposure to certain pesticides can increase the risk of childhood cancer, the report found. Poor and minority populations are disproportionately exposed to various pollutants, urging doctors to be aware of concerns unique to where they live, the committee said.

Worker at swine farm rescued from manhole By JILLIAN DUCHNOWSKI jduchnowski@shawmedia.com KINGSTON – A 47-year-old man was airlifted from Illini Farms about two hours after his co-workers found him unconscious about 15 feet down a manhole Monday evening. Authorities did not release the name or condition of the worker late Monday. He was taken to OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center in Rockford, according to a news release from the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office. The employee went into the manhole Monday to do maintenance on a manure pit at the swine farm at 11459 Base Line Road, which is east of Pleasant Hill Road south of Kingston, DeKalb County Chief Deputy Gary Dumdie said. Two other workers went down to check on him after no one had heard from him for a period of time and found him unconscious about 6 p.m. The other two workers remained with him as emergency crews assembled, Dumdie said. After the rescue, crews treated one worker at the scene who went down to help the first victim and took the second to a local hospital, Dumdie said. Crews from Genoa-Kingston, Kirkland, Sycamore, DeKalb, Marengo, Pingree Grove, Hampshire and Monroe Center fire departments, as well as the sheriff’s office, responded to the scene.

980 Park Avenue, Genoa. The meeting will include a public hearing on the proposed budget for the fiscal year that started July 1. In March, 14 teaching positions, the freshman sports program and dozens of support staff were cut as part of a plan to slash $600,000 from the school budget. Those changes wouldn’t have gone into effect until this academic year, but since then, six of the teachers in music, math, science and

reading returned. Brad Shortridge, assistant superintendent of District 424, said faculty members found ways to raise the money to save the freshman sports program. School board members told Burgess and Shortridge to find ways to reduce the deficit by half. Much of the cuts came by reducing outside services or equipment by $600,000. “We have tried to keep much of that in-house as we

can,” Shortridge said. Other savings were found by combining administrator positions or having administrators take on more responsibilities. Shortridge estimated the school district has saved more than $100,000 this way in the past 2 to 3 years. Overall, expenses are projected to increase from $18.6 million last year to $18.9 million this year. Meanwhile, the projected revenue dipped $300,000 from $18.4 million

last year, largely because the district’s revenue from the state fell 9 percent. “When we’re 35 percent dependent on [state revenue] and it goes down 9 percent, that hurts,” Shortridge said. General state aid payments are tied to enrollment, which fell from 1,883 last year to an estimated 1,854 students this year. The budget that will be presented at today’s meeting will include the $1.2 million in funds the school receives

for handling the payroll for the Kishwaukee College Education Consortium. Shortridge said there’s always opportunities to reduce the district’s deficit. If revenues continue to decrease, district officials may have to look at ways to reduce expenditures. “It’s a constant project,” he said, “where you’re always trying to do the best you can with your expenditures and figure out what you’re going to do to educate your kids.”

DeKalb rated by America in Bloom program By JILLIAN DUCHNOWSKI

The Ellwood House in DeKalb as seen Monday. DeKalb earned a rating of three out of five for beautification work in the community from America in Bloom.

jduchnowski@shawmedia.com DeKALB – DeKalb County Community Gardens director Dan Kenney has lived in DeKalb for almost 40 years but learned more about local programs through the America in Bloom judges tour. Two judges from this national program visited DeKalb for two days in August, which pushed local government and community leaders to showcase landscaping, environmental efforts and heritage preservation throughout DeKalb. “It helped me see DeKalb through fresh eyes,” Kenney said. “I was really impressed when I saw all the initiatives we have going on that America in Bloom looks for.” America in Bloom leaders announced this weekend that DeKalb earned a rating of three out of five. The other cities in the population category of 35,001 to 50,000 that received higher ratings: Holland, Mich., scored a five while Huntington, W.Va., and Winter Garden, Fla.,

Rob Winner – rwinner@ shawmedia.com

both received fours. Local leaders are eager to review the judge’s scorecards, which could provide feedback on everything from public plantings to community involvement, Mayor John Rey said. He said local leaders will strongly consider participating again. The $1,099 entry fee was paid from

DeKalb’s general fund. “This is the first year DeKalb has participated in the program,” Rey said. “I would say I’m accepting of their rating. I realize the criteria they use for the rating is more than just flower displays. It’s looking at collaboration across the community.”

The judges complimented the Ellwood House Museum, 509 N. First St., as well as the Egyptian Theatre, 135 N. Second St., and the community garden program. In its second year, the community garden program has more than 200 raised beds across 37 sites throughout the county, but the judges visited

gardens by DeKalb City Hall, the Adult Day Care on South Fourth Street, and Founders Elementary School, Kenney said. They also drove past Huntley Middle School, where the Barb Food Mart distributes produce from the community gardens to DeKalb School District 428 families in need. The judges also complimented the 50 planters downtown and on Northern Illinois University designed by Proven Winners company, whose representatives were active on the committee coordinating DeKalb’s entry into the America in Bloom program. “The Proven Winners company designs the planters using good arrangement, color, texture and balance,” the judges said in a news release. “The containers are beautifully maintained by a part-time employee. This project is symbolic of the positive changes that take place when the business community works with the city and the university.”

8OBITUARIES DONALD ‘TANK’ ANDERSON Born: March 12, 1937, in DeKalb, Ill. Died: Sept. 22, 2013, in DeKalb, Ill. SYCAMORE – Donald Oscar “Tank” Anderson, 76, of Sycamore, Ill., passed away Sunday, Sept. 22, 2013, at Kishwaukee Hospital, DeKalb. Born March 12, 1937, at home on east Lincoln Highway, DeKalb, he was the son of Oscar and Sophia (Greenaway) Anderson. Quite the athlete, Tank was involved with football and track during his high school years and received all-state honors in the shot put as a prep. He also played catcher and designated hitter for 20-plus years while involved with fast-pitch softball, vying for league, state, national and world titles regularly with various teams in the region, including DeKalb’s 35ers. Tank also spent decades officiating IHSA football and was part of numerous state football final crews. A lifelong resident of DeKalb, Don married Dolores “Dee” Marsh on Feb. 24, 1962. They celebrated 51 years of marriage while raising two sons, Darin and Douglas. Don served in the U.S. Army security agency for three years, stationed in Japan. His athleticism led to participation in traveling baseball and football teams during his service. A descendant of the designer and builder of the original house of worship, he and Dee avidly involved themselves with DeKalb’s First Lutheran Church. While helping his wife raise their family, Don worked at Wurlitzer Piano and the DeKalb Fire Department, where he attained the rank of lieutenant, and he finished his career as a municipal servant involved with the fire prevention arm of the city of DeKalb’s code enforcement division. He also was a past board member of the DeKalb County Voluntary Action Center, and he and his wife delivered VAC’s Meals on Wheels for 18 years.

2 charged in Chicago park shooting The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – Authorities on Monday night charged two men in connection with a shooting last week at a Chicago park that injured 13 people, including a 3-year-old boy. Officials said 21-year-old Bryon Champ and 20-yearold Kewane Gatewood were charged in the shooting at Cornell Square Park, which is located in Chicago’s southwest side. Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said

that while the two played significant roles in the shooting, neither is believed to have pulled the trigger. McCarthy said detectives are continuing the investigation. Authorities say as many as three people opened fire Thursday on a basketball court in the Back of the Yards neighborhood. Among those injured were 3-year-old Deonta Howard, who is recovering from surgery after being shot near an ear, along with two teenagers. Earlier Monday, police had

Chicago retirement home throws party for 7 centenarians The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – It was a sevenfold celebration this weekend at a retirement home on Chicago’s far south side. The Smith Village retirement community held a party Sunday to mark the birthdays of seven residents who turned 100 or older during the past year. The seven centenarians have a combined age of 713, according to the Southtown Star. The group celebrated

Sunday with a seven-layer cake. All seven offered different reasons for their longevity. John Stanis, 103, said he spends at least 30 minutes a day working out. Meanwhile, 105-year-old Ann McGowan is a regular bingo player. “She likes to be involved in everything,” said Emily Eisinas, life enrichment director at the facility. “People here count on her opinions and ideas.”

Gertrude Norby, 100, says she thinks her German heritage helped, along with a nightly martini. Norby is a former dancer who performed – Rockette-style – during intermission at movie houses. In high school, she was in an opera club. These days, she uses a wheelchair and suffers from macular degeneration, which affects her eyesight. “Other than that, everything is good,” she said.

to close this case quickly.” The shooting returned Chicago’s gun violence problem to the nation’s consciousness. The assailants fired more than a dozen rounds from an assault-style rifle, police have said. They believe the shooting was gang-related, as several gang members were injured, although it’s not yet clear who the intended target was. Mayor Rahm Emanuel rode along with police officers late Sunday in particularly violent city neighborhoods.

Emanuel has made curbing violence a high priority, allowing the police department to spend millions of dollars in overtime to saturate high-crime areas with hundreds of additional officers. Through Sept. 15, police say they’ve recorded 306 murders and 1,402 shooting incidents this year. That’s down 20 percent and 22 percent, respectively, from the same period in 2012. Police say overall violent crime is down about 15 percent, according to new figures released Monday.

ADM looking to move longtime headquarters By DAVID MERCER The Associated Press CHAMPAIGN – Agribusiness giant Archer Daniels Midland Company said Monday that after spending 44 years in Decatur, it is looking for a new location for its headquarters with better access to its global customers. Chicago officials said the city is among the candidates. ADM said it already is considering a list of potential locations for what it’s calling its new global headquarters, but doesn’t plan to publicly discuss where it could be headed or how long it will take to make the decision. But the company also said it doesn’t plan any layoffs and will keep a workforce of 4,400 in Decatur, which also will become ADM’s North American headquarters. The company has extensive operations in the city and is its largest employer. “Our company is growing and becoming more global

Fairfax reaches deal to buy Blackberry The ASSOCIATED PRESS TORONTO – BlackBerry’s largest shareholder has reached a tentative agreement to pay $4.7 billion for the troubled smartphone maker, even as many investors fret about its potential demise. BlackBerry Ltd. said Monday that Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd. has signed a letter of intent to buy the company for $9 a share in cash and take it private. The tentative deal comes just days after the Canadian company announced plans to lay off 40 percent of its global workforce. The offer price is below what the company had been trading at before the layoff announcement. Analysts say that although BlackBerry’s hardware business is not worth anything, the company still owns valuable patents. Patents on wireless technologies have exploded in value in recent years, as makers of the iPhone and various Android devices sue each other. Having a strong portfolio of patents allows phone makers to defend themselves and work out deals. BlackBerry also is strong in having total cash and investments of about $2.6 billion, with no debt. The BlackBerry deal follows a $7.2 billion offer that Microsoft Corp. made this month for the phones and services business of another troubled phone maker, Nokia Corp. Last year, Google Inc. paid $12.4 billion for another fallen pioneer, Motorola Mobility, mostly for its patents. The BlackBerry, pioneered in 1999, was once the dominant smartphone for onthe-go business people and other consumers. It could be so addictive that it was nicknamed “the CrackBerry.” President Barack Obama couldn’t bear to part with his BlackBerry. Oprah Winfrey declared it one of her “favorite things.” But then came a new generation of competing smartphones, starting with Apple’s iPhone in 2007. The BlackBerry, that game-changing breakthrough in personal connectedness, looked ancient suddenly. Although BlackBerry was once Canada’s most valuable company with a market value of $83 billion in June 2008, the stock has plummeted from more than $140 a share to less than $9, giving it a market value of $4.6 billion, just short of Fairfax’s offer. BlackBerry shares plunged 17 percent Friday after the company announced a loss of nearly $1 billion and layoffs of 4,500 workers. It gained 9 cents, or 1.1 percent, to $8.82 Monday.

The Archer Daniels Midland Company plant in Decatur announced Monday in a news release that after 44 years, it is looking for a new location for its headquarters.

he said. “We’ll do our best to keep them in Illinois.” ADM has talked off and on for years about the need for a headquarters with easier access to the world beyond central Illinois, company spokeswoman Victoria Podesta said. Decatur’s small airport lacks commercial flights, and the other airports within 90 minutes of Decatur offer only connections to larger airports. During the company’s proposed acquisition of the Australian company Graincorp, ADM decided to go ahead with the plan, Podesta said. “Decatur doesn’t have an international airport,” she said. “If you’re trying to get to Australia to have a meeting ... it adds to your trip.” The company, she said, let local officials in Decatur know of its plans in the past few days. Messages left by The Associated Press with city officials in Decatur were not immediately returned.

8STATE BRIEFS State launches effort to fight child abuse CHICAGO – State officials who oversee the welfare of children in the state are launching a new effort to help stop child abuse and neglect. The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services has started it’s “You Are Not Alone” campaign. It includes a hotline, which is 800-2522873. The department is asking school officials, including regional school superintendents and private school organizations, to distribute 25,000

posters statewide. The effort is being initiated as students return to the school. The department says one in five children are abused or neglected before they turn 18.

Durkin begins House GOP leadership duties SPRINGFIELD – State Rep. Jim Durkin officially began his tenure as Republican leader in the Illinois House. The Western Springs lawmaker was elected to the post last month but officially took the reins Monday. His predecessor, state

Rep. Tom Cross of Oswego, stepped down to run for state treasurer. Cross held the position for a decade. Durkin has served as a Cook County assistant state’s attorney Jim Durkin and assistant State Illinois attorney representative general. He was first elected to the House in 1994 and served until 2002. He made an unsuccessful bid for U.S. Senate and was re-elected to the House in

2006. Durkin said he’s anxious to get to work. He said he wants to focus on bringing fiscal stability back to Illinois and ending government corruption.

Dog rescued after 2 hours at bottom of Ill. well STANDARD – A dog fell 23 feet into a northern Illinois well, then dog-paddled for two hours until firefighters could hoist him to safety. It happened Saturday near the tiny Putnam County town of Standard when a Goldendoodle named Doogie ran

to greet a worker who had opened the top of the family’s well to inspect it. Homeowners Arch and Judy Hopkins called the ordeal “horrifying.” Doogie alternated between swimming and extending his legs to wedge himself from wall to wall while firefighters figured out how to get him out. Eventually he was hoisted out after a firefighter rappelled into the well and got the dog into a mesh body bag, which allowed air water to pass through.

Death toll rises in Colo. flooding Egypt Brotherhood ban opens way to wider crackdown

Woman, 79, found dead By IVAN MORENO

By MAGGIE MICHAEL

The Associated Press

The Associated Press

DENVER – A 79-yearold woman whose house was swept away by the Big Thompson River was found dead on the river bank, authorities said Monday, bringing to eight the death toll from the massive flooding in Colorado. As the number of people unaccounted-for dwindled to six, Vice President Joe Biden viewed the devastation from a helicopter before meeting with disaster workers. “I promise you, I promise you, there will be help,” Biden said, trying to mute concerns that a possible federal government shutdown could derail relief efforts. The latest victim was identified as Evelyn M. Starner. Larimer County authorities said she drowned and suffered blunt force trauma. Starner was previously listed as missing and presumed dead. Authorities initially said she was 80. Starner was found Saturday. Two other people were still missing and presumed dead – a 60-year-old woman and a 46-year-old man, both from Larimer County. The number of unaccounted for people shrank as improving communications and road access allowed authorities to contact 54 people

CAIRO – An Egyptian court Monday ordered the banning of the Muslim Brotherhood and the confiscation of its assets, opening the door for authorities to dramatically accelerate a crackdown on the extensive network of schools, hospitals, charities and other social institutions that was the foundation of the group’s political power. Security forces have already been moving against the Brotherhood’s social networks, raiding schools and hospitals run by the group since the military’s July 3 ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. The sweep points to the ambitions of Egypt’s new leaders to go beyond the arrests of top Brotherhood figures to strike a long-term, even mortal, blow to the group by hitting the pillars of its grass-roots organization. Doing so could cripple the group’s political prospects far into the future. “The plan is to drain the sources of funding, break the joints of the group, and the dismantle podiums from which they deliver their message,” said one senior security official, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss security agencies’ intentions. Blurring its political and religious nature, the Brotherhood vaulted to election dom-

State highway crews and National Guard troops worked Sunday to repair highways to Colorado mountain towns cut off by the unprecedented flooding. over the weekend who had not been heard from. The floods caused damage across 17 counties and nearly 2,000 square miles. Nearly 2,000 homes were damaged or destroyed along with more than 200 miles of state highways and 50 state bridges. The floods are also blamed for spills of about 27,000 gallons of oil in northern Colorado oilfields, including two mishaps found over the weekend, the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission said. The commission said it’s tracking eight notable leaks, 10 other locations with some evidence of leaks, and 33

places where oilfield equipment appears damaged but no evidence of spills has been spotted. About 1,300 oil and gas wells remain shut down. The Federal Emergency Management Agency said it had approved $19.6 million in individual assistance, most of it to help people find temporarily rentals or make house repairs. More than 15,600 people have applied for FEMA relief. With talk of a government shutdown emanating from Washington, FEMA insisted its aid will continue uninterrupted whether there is a budget impasse or not. The Disaster Relief Fund

and FEMA operations on the ground in Colorado won’t be affected, officials said. “The response in Colorado will not be impacted,” said FEMA spokesman Dan Watson. The U.S. Department of Transportation has pledged an initial $35 million for roads, and Colorado has allocated $100 million. Colorado’s congressional delegation is lobbying to raise the Federal Highway Administration’s $100 million funding cap for emergency relief to $500 million – an amount approved after Hurricane Sandy struck Atlantic states last year.

inance in large part because of its multiple business interests that provide funding, as well as schools, mosques and powerful social institutions providing cheap medical care and services to millions of impoverished Egyptians. As a result, after the 2011 ouster of autocrat Hosni Mubarak, the Brotherhood swept parliament elections and lifted Morsi into office as the country’s first freely elected leader. “The hospitals and schools are among the most powerful tools to garner support, which would be translated into votes,” said Ahmed Ban, a researcher and former Brotherhood member. Schools give the group “a large pool to recruit new cadres at a very stage of their lives,” he said. Hospitals send the message that “we are offering good and cheap services, and we are the good Muslims.” In election seasons, Brotherhood hospitals, joined by candidates, would send medical convoys offering free care to villages where state services are absent. The past two years, the Brotherhood’s political party, the Freedom and Justice Party, held markets selling reduced-price food and clothes. Outlawed for most of 85year existence – with successive regimes alternating between repression and tolerance – the Brotherhood built its networks largely underground.

U.S. edges closer to high-level talks with Iran The ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK – The Obama administration edged close to direct, high-level talks with Iran’s new government Monday, with Secretary of State John Kerry slated to meet his Iranian counterpart this week and the White House weighing the risks and rewards of an encounter between President Barack Obama and Iran’s president, Hasan Rouhani. An Obama-Rouhani exchange on the sidelines of

the U.N. General Assembly would mark the first meeting at that high level for the two nations in more than 30 years. Such talks could signal a turning point in U.S.-Iranian relations – but also could be seen as a premature endorsement for a new Iranian government that has yet to answer key questions about the future of its disputed nuclear program. Obama advisers said no meeting was scheduled. But they added that the U.S. planned to take advantage

Assad: Syria committed to destroy chemical weapons The ASSOCIATED PRESS DAMASCUS, Syria – President Bashar Assad pledged in an interview broadcast Monday to honor an agreement to surrender Syria’s stockpile of chemical weapons, but he said that rebels might try to block international arms inspectors from doing their work. As battles continued across Syria, new Associated Press video of an attack Sunday night showed the regime’s helicopters dropping barrel bombs on opposition-held areas, creating chaotic scenes of destruction. In a sign of worsening infighting among the rebels, a top al-Qaida commander in Syria was killed in an ambush by rival, Western-backed group – an assassination sure

to raise tensions among factions seeking to topple the regime. Assad’s comments came as world leaders gathered in New York for the annual U.N. General Assembly, where the use of chemical weapons in Syria’s civil war was high on the agenda. The Syrian leader told Chinese state TV that Damascus is dedicated to implementing the agreement reached between Russia and the U.S. to surrender its chemical weapons to international control. Syria’s stockpile, he said, is “in safe areas and locations and under the full control of the Syrian Arab Army.” Assad cautioned, however, that the rebels might block inspectors from reaching some of the locations, in order to frame the government.

As recession ends, decrease in illegal immigration stops • IMMIGRATION Continued from page A1 in illegal immigration from 2007 to 2009 has clearly bottomed out, with signs the numbers are now rising, Pew said. Pew said that among the six states with the largest numbers of immigrants here illegally, only Texas had a consistent increase in illegal immigration from 2007 to 2011, in part because of its stronger economy. Its number was unchanged from 2011 to 2012. Two states – Florida and New Jersey – had an initial drop but then increases during the same 2007 to 2011 period. Three states – California, Illinois and New York – showed only declines. “As a whole, with the recession ending, the decrease in illegal immigration has stopped,” said Jeffrey Passel, a senior demographer at Pew. Passel noted that historically the level of illegal immigration has been closely tied to the strength of the U.S. economy and availability of jobs. Since 2009, the average U.S. unemployment rate has dropped from 9.3 percent to 8.1 percent last year, with signs of strength in the construction industry, which yields jobs generally attractive to newly arrived Latino immigrants. The Pew analysis is based on census data through March 2012. Because the Census Bureau does not ask people about their immigration status, the estimate on illegal immigrants is derived largely by subtracting the estimated legal immigrant population from the total foreign-born population. It is a method that has been used by the government and Pew for many years and is generally accepted. Analysts said it was hard

to predict whether immigrants in the country illegally could eventually exceed the record total of 12.2 million in 2007. Continued modest increases are possible, but another big surge like the one seen in the late 1990s and early 2000s isn’t likely, partly because of demographic factors such as Mexico’s aging workforce. “Labor demand in the U.S. is still slack and wages are eroding, whereas there are jobs in Mexico and wages are slowly rising as labor force growth there decelerates,” said Douglas Massey, a professor of sociology and public affairs at Princeton University who is co-director of the Mexican Migration Project. “The pressures for mass migration are diminishing for now, but who knows what kind of disasters lie ahead?” Analyses of census data from the U.S. and Mexican governments show that the number of immigrants here illegally peaked at 12.2 million in 2007, during the U.S. housing boom, and before the recession hit. It then dropped roughly 7 percent to 11.3 million in 2009, the first two-year decline in two decades, because of the weak U.S. economy which shrank construction and service-sector jobs. Much of the decline came as many Mexican workers who already were here saw diminishing job opportunities and returned home. Since then, the U.S. economy has shown some improvement, while public opinion regarding immigrants has shifted in some cases in favor of granting legal rights. For instance, some state legislatures this year have passed immigrant-friendly measures such as college tuition breaks and rights to driver’s licenses, even as others enacted laws aimed at tightening the system.

of diplomatic opportunities while in New York and indicated they were not leaving a possible encounter between Obama and Rouhani to chance. “I don’t think that anything would happen by happenstance on a relationship and an issue that is this important,” Ben Rhodes, Obama’s deputy national security adviser, told reporters traveling with the president to New York. The election of Rouhani, a moderate cleric, has led to

speculation about possible progress on Iran’s nuclear impasse with the U.S. Particularly intriguing to American officials are Rouhani’s assertions that his government has “complete authority” in nuclear negotiations. That would be a marked change from previous governments and their relationship with Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The U.S. and its allies have long suspected that Iran is trying to produce a nuclear weapon, though Tehran in-

sists its nuclear activities are only for producing energy and for medical research. American officials say Rouhani’s change in tone is driven by the Iranian public’s frustration with crippling economic sanctions levied by the U.S. But it is still unclear whether Iran is willing to take the steps the U.S. is seeking in order to ease the sanctions, including curbing uranium enrichment and shutting down the underground Fordo nuclear facility.

Zarif’s participation, which was announced Monday, sets up the first meeting in six years between an American secretary of state and an Iranian foreign minister, although it’s unclear whether the two men will break off from the group and hold separate one-on-one talks.

Officials push to end Kenya mall siege The ASSOCIATED PRESS NAIROBI, Kenya – Kenyan security forces battled al-Qaida-linked terrorists in an upscale mall for a third day Monday in what they said was a final push to rescue the last few hostages in a siege that has left at least 62 people dead. While the government announced Sunday that “most” hostages had been released, a security expert with contacts inside the mall said at least 10 were still being held by a band of attackers described as “a multinational collection from all over the world.” The expert, who insisted on anonymity to talk freely about the situation, said many hostages had been freed or escaped in the previous 24-36 hours, including some who were in hiding. However, there were at least 30 hostages when the assault by al-Shabab militants began Saturday, he said, and “it’s clear” that Kenyan security officials “haven’t cleared the building fully.” Flames and dark plumes of smoke rose Monday above

Kenya’s military launched a major operation at the upscale Nairobi mall and said it had rescued “most” of the hostages being held captive by al-Qaida-linked militants during the standoff that killed at least 68 people and injured 175. the Westgate shopping complex for more than an hour after four large explosions rocked the surrounding neighborhood. The smoke was pouring through a large skylight inside the mall’s main department and grocery store, where mattresses and other flammable goods

appeared to have been set on fire, a person with knowledge of the rescue operation told The Associated Press. The explosions were followed by volleys of gunfire as police helicopters and a military jet circled overhead, giving the neighborhood the feel of a war zone.

By evening, Kenyan security officials claimed the upper hand. “Taken control of all the floors. We’re not here to feed the attackers with pastries but to finish and punish them,” Police Inspector General David Kimaiyo said on Twitter.

Kiesgen, now the manager of the franchise, thought if she was going to help the clients she had better “walk the walk.” She began following the Curves eating and exercise program, and dropped another 57 pounds.

You can quit so many things – you give up soda, you lose a little weight, you give up ice cream, you lose a little weight – but weight maintenance is more about building muscle.

My perspective is totally different now.” Kiesgen is also proud to say that the lifestyle has, as she hoped, influenced her daughter, who sometimes comes to her with running shoes on and invites her to go for a run. Since losing the weight, Kiesgen said she is still coming to emotional terms with her new body. Right or wrong, she said, people do treat her differently and respond to her differently than they did when she was heavy. “I’m very overwhelmed [by the magazine story],” she said. “I have to do a photo shoot, and it’s so weird someone wants to take my picture. I never wanted to be in pictures. I have to see myself as the person I am now.”

Lots of change in Northern Rehab’s 35 years By CHRIS BURROWS

cburrows@shawmedia.com DeKALB – A lot has changed for workers since the late 1970s. Since then, desks with computers have become the standard workspace, forcing an aging population of baby boomers to find other ways to become active. The transition hasn’t been totally smooth. “We do see some effects of working in front of a computer or a workstation and the postural things that happen and the strain on the neck, shoulders and arms that result in painful conditions,” Northern Rehab President Ken Olson said. “Computer-related pain wasn’t really an issue 30 years ago.” Nowadays, an estimated 186 million work days are lost each year to back pain alone in the U.S., according to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. Northern Rehab has been there every step of the way and this year is celebrating

8BRIEFS Consortium seeking to grow local work force The DeKalb-Ogle Workforce Development Consortium has hired Gene Fogle as its industrial work force coordinator. The consortium addresses workforce development needs and opportunities in the DeKalb-Ogle county area. It is the area’s major industries, economic development entities and educators working together to create the workforce of tomorrow and beyond. “This is the first time in my memory that DeKalb and Ogle counties have worked together to address a common challenge,” Paul Borek, DeKalb County Economic Development Corp. executive director, said in a news release. The Industrial Workforce Coordination Pilot Program emerged from two workforce summits convened to determine how to best contribute to industrial growth and student career development. The two counties were already collaborating on Kish CareerLink, an interactive website that connects students and employers. The pilot program hopes to show students what types of industrial careers are available, teach them the required skills, provide them with workplace experience, and clarify how qualified and motivated individuals can attain careers in advanced manufacturing and industry that are financially rewarding and satisfy the need for accomplishment. “This is a program without a lot of precedent,” said Dave Juday, chairman of Ideal Industries, said in the release. “It represents an exciting opportunity for industry and educators to impact the future of our students, our companies and our communities.” Industry provides stability to area employment and strengthens the tax base, and

education provides employees to industry. Rochelle Township High School Superintendent Jamie Craven said this program will have a positive impact on the workforce, as well as the students. “Without a doubt, providing the area’s industry with a quality work force is a goal for our district,” Craven said in the release. “This program will enable our students to relate to the jobs that are available after graduation and prepare appropriately.”

Kirkland chamber offers customer service workshop The Kirkland Chamber of Commerce will sponsor guest speker Laurie Guest on Oct. 10. She will present “The Guest Encounter: An Insightful and Profitable Look at Your Customer Service.” What happens when a “guest” (customer, client, patron or patient) encounters your organization? Many business owners and managers feel they already have customer service and sales under control and additional training isn’t needed. However, Guest has found a significant number of companies missing opportunities that cost nothing but can have a huge impact on their bottom line. In this fast-paced session, Guest will share the key areas her firm evaluates when completing a Guest Encounter report card for a business. Everyone in attendance will leave with a self-shop document and instructions on how to make sure they are scoring high in customer engagement. Registration begins at 11 a.m. at the Kirkland Fire Station, west of town on Highway 72. Cost for chamber members is $20 and $30 for for nonmembers. A box lunch of beef, chicken or turkey sandwich is included. Identify sandwich choice when registering.

Proceeds from the Unlimited Performance 5K Run/Walk by KishHealth System Physical Therapy Center – formerly Unlimited Performance Rehabilitation & Sports Medicine – were matched by KishHealth System, and the total amount of $2,800 was donated to Adventure Works. Adventure Works is a nonprofit adventure therapy agency serving children age 6 and older. Its mission is to help youth become healthy adults by positive intervention through adventure therapy. Pictured are Cindy Tucker, director of KishHealth System Physical Therapy, and Chris Laurent, athletic trainer and 5K race director, presenting the donation to Adventure Works Executive Director Lynette Spencer.

Members of the NAPA AutoCare Centers of DeKalb County recently donated a check for $1,000 to the YMCA Strong Kids. The donation was generated through a portion of oil changes sales at the following businesses: Archer Alignment, Barb City Auto, Bockman’s Auto Care, Milex Auto Care, Motor Works, Ritz’s Southtown, Sauber Automotive, University Shell, 3-D Auto Repair, Illini Tire, Mikes Truck & Auto, and DeKalb County NAPA Auto Parts.

more, joined the group 17 years ago as a staff therapist and became its president in 2006. He says the industry has changed a lot over three decades. “Thirty years ago, physical therapy was more focused on using modalities like hot and cold, ultrasound and electric stimulation with a little bit of exercise and manual therapy mixed in,” he said. “Now, it’s much more focused on the active exercise approach and combining that with manual therapy, and minimizing the use of the other modalities.” Olson specializes in spinal treatments and believes there are a lot of reasons behind more people seeking physical therapy now than 35 years ago. “The aging population is a part of it, but also people trying to stay active longer in their lives and not being satisfied with their physical impairment and seeking to repair or restore their motion and their mobility,” Olson said.

Connecting in today’s world With the role that technology plays in today’s business community, it made me think about what getting connected means in today’s world. With regards to technology, getting connected used to involve wires and cords. Now, the focus is on being wireless, portable and accessible. The business world is shifting in a similar manner from traveling to be face to face in front of the prospective and current clients to the convenience of web conferencing and emails to communicate with our “connections.” The use of social media CHAMBER outlets has VIEW replaced some Matt Duffy group communication and is almost to the point of requiring the use of a smart phone. It’s gotten to the point where a simple post on Facebook has replaced the birthday card. I’m someone who believed that I was not as caught up in this as most. The truth is that I’m just rationalizing my use of these communications with business and community members. At a recent event, I talked with a business contact whom I know … or at least I thought I did. We’ve spoken on the phone and emailed multiple times, however, this was the first time that we had actually met face to face although we’ve “known each other” for almost a year. Until I saw their name tag I didn’t know who this person was. Connecting with others is more than just knowing what they ate for dinner or whether they like a photo. Being a person that they are comfortable working with or buying something from is a trait that there is not an app for on any device you can buy. However, using technology and social media to better service a client, be better informed about a person, or to help educate you on today’s latest and greatest is a resource that people need in today’s world. The combination of meeting in person and online education and communication is what will help you accomplish your goals. I’m not trying to downplay the relevance or success of using technology to connect with people. My point is simply to not forget about and to understand the importance of meeting people in person to help make that connection stronger. The chamber offers a number of opportunities to connect with business and community members in person and online. Be sure to use these resources to build strong, long lasting connections with current and potential clients, leaders and resources who can help take your organization (or personally) to where you want to go. Check out the list of upcoming events by visiting www.dekalb.org, calling 815-756-6306, or following us through Facebook or Twitter. This is just another way to link social media with meeting in person. I hope to see you at an upcoming event to look you in the eyes, shake your hand and connect with you while helping you connect with others through the DeKalb Chamber of Commerce.

America has a hip-hop double standard By GILBERT NEWMAN PERKINS The Washington Post. If I were a betting man, I’d wager that neither Bill O’Reilly nor Don Lemon is a good dancer. Like many who go to soulful music concerts and experience the rhythms yet are unable to move to the beat, O’Reilly and Lemon have heard hip-hop (allegedly) and completely missed the literary prowess of the music. Not long ago, pundits O’Reilly of Fox News and Lemon of CNN asserted that hip-hop music and children raised out of wedlock are root causes of all ills in the black community, including the epidemic of violence in urban areas. The lack of employment opportunities was strangely absent from their analysis. Neither man noted that, of the 25 million children being raised by a single parent in this country in 2011, the largest share by race, 9.5 million, were white, according to the National Kids Count Data Center. The real issue is that men, both black and white, are no longer able to support families like they used to when men actually built things in this country. Economics should be the focus, because the effects of music are varied. For the past year, I’ve worked with young black and brown boys and girls in the Washington area and watched them consume, comprehend and

codify literature ranging from Beowulf to Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” to Martin Luther King Jr.’s Letter From a Birmingham Jail. I’ve developed an entire curriculum, Words Live, that teaches Common Core State Standards texts through the literary genius of Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Tupac and others. There is unexamined genius in the literary work of hip-hop. Hip-hop compositions are masterful poetry: The form of the standard hip-hop song is three verses of 16 bars written to various beats-per-minute patterns, which mirrors Shakespeare’s use of iambic pentameter. I suspect that O’Reilly and Lemon missed it when Lil Wayne said that “Real Gs move in silence like lasagna.” But our young black boys didn’t because they are brilliant. Hip-hop artists have mastered the English language, with all its nuances and transmutations. They have articulated an etymological perspective with an original slang lexicon and have presented the world with a previously untold story of American life. Unfortunately, comments such as those by O’Reilly and Lemon remind me that our country also has a long-standing pathology of dishonesty. Similar to writing a Constitution that ignored the institution of slavery. Detractors ignore the structure and criticize the content. I wonder where this criticism of content is articulated about

other folk music. Country star Toby Keith, reported by Forbes to have a net worth of more than $500 million, has out-earned almost everyone in hip-hop’s history. Five of Keith’s 10 most popular songs on Spotify celebrate or make direct references to alcohol consumption: “Beers Ago,” “Red Solo Cup,” “Drinks After Work,” “Beer for My Horses” and “I Love This Bar.” Where’s the debate about Toby Keith contributing to U.S. substance-abuse problems? A few years ago, alcohol consumption was the third-leading cause of preventable death in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Alcoholism is linked to violent crime, birth defects, domestic and sexual abuse, homelessness and other social ills. The United States has a double standard when it comes to black people’s license to express themselves. Hip-hop is more than just sounding bass and twinkling similes. It helps us. I was 26 when my mother died. I kept three songs on repeat, and the lyrics cradled my broken heart to sleep at night: “Dance” by Nas, Kanye West’s “Hey Mama” and Slum Village’s “Keep Holding On.” Hip-hop helped heal me.

District 428 school board members didn’t look far to find their next superintendent, and that’s not a bad thing. The board last week voted to hire Doug Moeller as the district’s next superintendent. Moeller, the district’s assistant superintendent for curriculum and student services who also spent three years as principal at DeKalb High School, will take over for Superintendent Jim Briscoe after this school year ends. No doubt a school district as large as DeKalb could have attracted many good candidates from around the state and the country had school board members gone to the time and expense of launching a far-reaching search.

Policing privacy on the GOP needs future-looking policies, not bromides Internet a tough task

Republicans have received a lot of advice on how they should change their party since Mitt Romney’s defeat in November 2012. They need it. They are in more than the usual disarray that afflicts parties out of the White House. Many members of their majority in the House of Representatives are out of step with the Republican leadership on issues ranging from Syria to defunding Obamacare. They have a clutch of presidential candidates who are little known nationally and take starkly different stands on issues. Any recent uptick in polls represents more a rejection of the Obama Democrats than an embrace of their opponents. So Republicans would do well to listen to advice, even from unlikely political quarters. Two articles in the past week warrant attention, even though they seem to propose opposite courses. In one corner are William Galston and Elaine Kamarck, Democrats who held top jobs in the Clinton White House, writing in The Washington Post. They point to their 1989 manifesto, “The Politics of Evasion: Democrats and the Presidency.” Democrats suffered, they argued, from mistaken beliefs that they could win the presidency by some combination of liberal orthodoxy and mobilizing core constituencies. They argued that Democrats’ previous victories in congressional and state elections wouldn’t continue indefinitely, as conservative Southerners would start to vote Republican. Their analysis proved prescient. Bill Clinton, campaigning as a New Democrat,

VIEWS Michael Barone captured the White House in 1992. And Republicans finally broke through and won a majority in the House in 1994. Today, they say, Republicans stand where Democrats did in 1989. They need to be more moderate. They should reject “hyper-individualistic libertarianism,” “mean-spirited words” and (in an uncharacteristically nasty analogy) “the tea party’s Wahhabi-style drive to restore pure, uncompromised conservatism.” A different recommendation comes from overseas. British parliamentarian Douglas Carswell, in a Telegraph blogpost, interprets the Sept. 8 victory of Tony Abbott and his center-right Liberal Party in Australia as a vote for full-throated conservatism. Abbott opposes abortion and same-sex marriage; he is a skeptic on global warming; and he wants to end immigration of asylum-seekers. The left-wing Oz commentariat said that made him unelectable. Yet he won big. Carswell’s advice to British Conservatives and, by implication, American Republicans is to “stop drifting to the soggy center.” Tony Abbott shows you can win. So which is it – go moderate or go bold? My reading is that there’s not as much conflict as initially appears. One reason is that the analogies go only so far. Galston and Kamarck surely under-

stand that Republicans aren’t in as bad shape as Democrats were in 1989. Then, Democrats had lost the presidential popular vote in the past six elections by an average of 10 percent. The corresponding figure for Republicans today is 4 percent. Moreover, Republicans have won House majorities in eight of the last 10 elections, on platforms similar to that of their presidential candidates. The party faces challenges, but not doom. I think the American Democrats and the British Conservatives are offering similar advice in two respects. Run on the issues of tomorrow, they say, not the issues of yesterday. Kamarck and Galston note that many Republicans offer policies modeled on Ronald Reagan’s. But the country faces different problems today. There is no shortage of unpopular Obama policies. Obamacare, for starters, is unpopular and may be headed for a train wreck when it goes into effect next month. Blocking the Keystone pipeline irritates most everyone except hardline environmentalists. Then there’s – James Carville’s phrase – the economy, stupid. Big government isn’t working as promised. Republicans need to present attractive policies that address future needs. Good policy, more than ideological positioning, is the key to political success.

As a good rule of thumb, assume any information posted on social media will be harvested like a veal calf headed for sale on a digital town square. Recently, the Federal Trade Commission reminded us all of that pipeline in announcing it was looking into Facebook’s new privacy policies. Those polices – unveiled just before Labor Day weekend, when presumably few would be paying attention – made clear that Facebook considers signing up for its service is de-facto consent to resell users’ data to advertisers. The FTC, on the other hand, considers that a potential breach of a 2011 regulatory agreement, which requires Facebook to get explicit consent from users. Facebook, which has a troubling record of eroding privacy standards, looks like it tried to slip one past consumers. Thank goodness someone is looking, because the vast majority of consumers are not. The boilerplate legalese of online contracts is scrolled past, in search of the quick “Agree” button. Facebook isn’t alone. Since 2011, Google, MySpace and Path social-networking sites all have settled FTC charges that the companies duped consumers regarding privacy policies. A digital thumbprint is easily left but nearly impossible to erase. It will get even more difficult to erase with advances in facial-recognition software, which suggest a future in which embarrassing “selfie” photos are instantly matched to LinkedIn business profiles and Facebook “likes” for lingerie manufacturers. In a Slate essay, writer Amy Webb described her aversion to posting any pictures of her child. ... That future is hypothetical. Facebook, and other social-media companies, can ensure a present modicum of privacy. Signing up for a Facebook account is not an invitation to harvest our lives for sale on the town square of digital advertising. Seattle Times

Brandon Pirri’s place is still uncertain PITTSBURGH – Brandon Pirri (above) believes his time is now – that he’s NHL-ready, that he can be the Blackhawks’ answer at second-line center, that his record in Rockford speaks for itself. So he’s not worried that the lower-body injury that kept him out of the preseason until Monday night has left him with too deep a hole to climb out of, and staring at another season-opener in the minors. “I’ve been here three years,” Pirri said before making his exhibition debut against the Penguins. “I think they know what I can do.” He’s right. And the Hawks are still plenty high on the 22-yearold who led the AHL in scoring last season, and has seven NHL games under his belt. But the Hawks also know what Michal Handzus can do. And all Handzus did was play a major role in winning the Stanley Cup. So when the Hawks open the season Oct. 1 against the Washington Capitals, Handzus – who, like Pirri, has been dealing with a minor lower-body injury throughout camp – is likely to be back between Patrick Sharp and Marian Hossa on the Hawks’ second line, regardless of whether he even plays in the preseason finale Saturday. “We’re hopeful that’s going to be the case,” Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said. “Good chance.” It’s not how this camp was supposed to go. Back in July, Quenneville said Handzus would start the season as a role player, likely shuttling in and out of the lineup on the fourth line. The initial hope was that Pirri – a guy whom general manager Stan Bowman repeatedly mentioned as next in line after trading away Dave Bolland and Michael Frolik to free up roster spots – would step into that role. Then Quenneville gave winger Brandon Saad a look at center to open camp. But Pirri got hurt, and the Saad experiment didn’t pan out. That leaves Handzus as the best – and safest – bet. At the very least, he’s keeping the spot warm until Pirri can take it from him. – Mark Lazerus, Chicago Sun-Times

Trestman goes above and beyond for Melton LAKE FOREST – It’s easy to poke fun at Marc Trestman. He looks like an accountant. He speaks like a scientist. He wears long pants and long sleeves to practice on steaming-hot days because of the importance of sun protection. By now, though, it’s clear that Trestman is more than capable as an NFL head coach. And Monday offered another reminder that Trestman’s leadership skills at Halas Hall extend well beyond drawing up X’s and O’s or preparing for

left-footed punters. We all know the feel-good news: The Bears improved to 3-0 with a road win against the Pittsburgh Steelers and are one of seven unbeaten teams in the NFL. We all know the feel-bad news: Pro Bowl defensive tackle Henry Melton rushed

the passer, took a funny step and was lost for the season, just like that. Melton, 26, tore the ACL in his left knee and will require surgery once the swelling goes down. What we didn’t know – at least, what I didn’t know until Monday – was what happened

in the wee hours of the morning after the Bears’ return flight landed at O’Hare Airport. That’s when Trestman the coach became Trestman the counselor. Melton, who flew home with the team shortly after being carted off the field, did not want anyone to drive him home. He might have torn ligaments in his knee, and he might have lost millions upon millions of dollars in next summer’s free-agent market, but he didn’t need anybody’s

sympathy, and he certainly didn’t need a chauffeur. So Trestman sent text messages to Melton to make sure he made it home safely. And when Melton returned home, he texted his coach to let him know he was OK. And when Melton and his mother arrived at Halas Hall at 11 a.m. Monday to confirm the bad news about his knee, guess who was right there with them in the trainers’ room?

Hiawatha has had to replace 11 players, including 10 starters, from last year’s team. The bulk of those players were the same ones Hiawatha had relied on since the varsity program got its start three years ago. “It’s completely new,” Hiawatha coach Kyle Monestero

said. “Some of these guys I had as freshmen, but it’s a new batch of boys. Even a couple of my older guys are transfers and are new.” The lone returning starter for Hiawatha from last season is senior Gage Grant. The senior midfielder/forward had the Hawks’ lone goal on Monday, taking a pass from fellow senior Taylor Edwards and one-touching a sliding shot past the Serena goalie eight minutes into the second half. He was part of the freshman class that came in when the soccer program was first started and said it’s been a tough adjustment without last year’s senior class.

and two scores. “I really think it’s who he’s been all year. I don’t think if it’s anything other than what he’s been for the past two years,” Rockets coach Matt Campbell said. “He’s a guy, he’s a constant competitor and he’s certainly a guy that got into rhythm throughout that football game.” Toledo even broke out some wildcat in the Central win.

“They give you an awful lot to prepare for,” Ball State coach Pete Lembo said. “As I was watching their offense last night and I’m starting to count all the run plays they have, between inside zone, the outside man scheme play, the counter and the draw, the trap, the tackle wrap, the wham play. That’s a lot of runs, then you throw the wildcat package in there.”

Win merits mediocre grades BEARS INSIDER Hub Arkush In many respects, the Bears’ 40-23 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers was their most impressive win of the season, and in many other respects the most frustrating. Forty points, 75 percent efficiency in the red zone on offense, five takeaways and zero turnovers, two defensive touchdowns, three quarterback sacks and a 27 percent stop rate on third-down efficiency on defense is all pretty heady stuff. But when your offense manages just 4.3 yards a play and 4.7 a pass play, allows two quarterback sacks and consistent pressure on Jay Cutler and converts just 5 of 15 first downs, and the defense gives up 459 yards (406 through the air) and 8.6 yards a pass play, teams will eventually lose as many games as they win. Cutler had his least productive game of the year throwing the football, but probably his best game of the three at quarterback. It was a solid B+. He executed the West Coast offense with precision early and then took over the game in the fourth quarter after the Steelers had closed to 27-23. The 159 total passing yards is all that keeps his grade below an A. The running backs get a B- for being good but not great. Matt Forte’s 55-yard run was one of the biggest plays of the night, but take it away and you’re left with 27 carries for 52 yards rushing. Blitz pickup was an adventure at times, and Michael Bush is starting to become a bit of a concern with just eight carries for 9 yards and now just 16 carries for 24 yards on the season.

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler scrambles for a first down Sunday before lowering his shoulder into Steelers safety Robert Golden during the fourth quarter in Pittsburgh. The Bears won, 40-23. get a B- as well. Other than the huge catches by Brandon Marshall and Earl Bennett on the big fourth-quarter third-down plays from Cutler, they combined for 18 catches for just 101 yards. Marshall had just five catches for 52 yards on eight targets. He caught four for 11 yards other than his one big play and Martellus Bennett managed just two catches for 10 yards on five targets. The offensive line also gets a B- for its part in the 27 rushes that managed just 52 yards other than the big 55-yarder and the role it played in the consistent pressure on Cutler. Clearly the Steelers’ 3-4 was a different challenge for them. However, B- isn’t a bad grade, and from where this offensive line started, its performance in Pittsburgh was still a lot better than we might have expected

just three weeks ago. The defensive line gets a C+. This could just as easily be a C or C-, as it once again managed no real pressure on Ben Roethlisberger without help from blitzing linebackers or defensive backs, and it offered a few gaping holes in the run game to a team averaging 37.5 yards per game rushing coming in. The Steelers gained 80 on the ground against the Bears. The only reason the C gets a plus is Julius Peppers’ TD return. The linebackers get an A. Both Lance Briggs and D.J. Williams were impact players totaling all three Bears QB sacks between them and a forced fumble apiece. James Anderson also played very well with five tackles, one tackle for loss and a fumble recovery. The secondary gets a C+ for

basically the same reason the defensive line did. The touchdown is better than nice, it’s a game-changer, but is allowing Roethlisberger to pass for 406 yards even worthy of an average, which is what a C suggests? This must get better. Finally, a C+ for the special teams, too. While the return game took a night off, Adam Podlesh’s 46.3 net punting and improved punt and kick coverage balanced that out. Strange, I know, but by a small margin these are the lowest grades I’ve given in their most impressive win. But really, where would they have been without Briggs, Williams and Cutler? • Hub Arkush covers the Bears for Shaw Media and HubArkush.com. Write to him at harkush@shawmedia.com.

NFL

Bears might evolve into really good team Marc Trestman went all Darwin on us after Sunday night’s game. “We’re still in this evolutionary process of trying to find out who we are,” the Bears coach said. “… We’re kind of a work in progress, but it’s exciting.’’ They are, and it is. The Bears are 3-0, even though they haven’t been consistently excellent when they’ve had the ball. Offensively, they are closer to walking upright than dragging their knuckles along the ground. But they have a ways to go to be the explosive offense Trestman envisions. What we’re seeing now is an opportunistic offense, which probably sounds patronizing, like a pat on the head and a dismissal. Let’s be clear: It doesn’t matter how you get to 3-0. Demerits and style points don’t exist. The Bears managed 258 total yards in their victory over the Steelers, including 159 through the air. And it didn’t matter. They scored when they needed to, most dramatically on a 17-yard connection between Jay Cutler and Earl Bennett late in the fourth quarter. If you had missed Sunday’s game, saw the 40-23 final score and went only by those ho-hum offensive stats, you would know that, in all likelihood, some of the points the Bears dropped on Pittsburgh came from somewhere other than the offense. In other words, you’ve heard this story before. But it’s a good story. The Bears’ defense forced five turnovers Sunday and scored two touchdowns to help put the game away. Imagine if the Bears’ offense ever catches up with the defense before Charles Tillman, Julius Peppers and Lance Briggs come down with age-related complaints. Is

VIEWS Rick Morrissey that like imagining the Cubs winning the World Series? No. A good offense isn’t a farfetched dream. It seems – this is where the dramatic music would come in – possible. The Bears will be without defensive tackle Henry Melton the rest of the season because of a torn ACL. Nate Collins will step in. I’m guessing there’s not panic in the streets of Chicago over that, no matter how good Melton is. If the injured player were Brandon Marshall, the gnashing of teeth would be in full grind. There were long stretches Sunday when the offense couldn’t do anything. Part of that had to do with the challenges of the Steelers’ 3-4 defense. Part of it had to do with the Bears turning as conservative as a banker’s tie rack after jumping to a 24-3 lead. If you think it was hard watching the offense pantomiming super slo-mo, imagine the frustration of playing in it during that dry spell Sunday night. Patience is a virtual impossibility for Cutler. “It’s not something I’m used to,” he said. “We have been preaching ball security a lot. It was just that type of game. … We were sitting pretty good early on, and we didn’t want to give them anything else.” Chicago has been teased like this before. Remember, the Bears opened last season with a 41-21 victory over the Colts, with Cutler throwing for 333 yards and two touchdowns. It looked like Charlie

Brown was finally going to kick the football, but offensive coordinator Mike Tice eventually intervened. The Bears went on to finish 28th in total offense. This looks different, more under control and less fragile. For one thing, Cutler is not under constant pressure. In three games, he has been sacked a total of three times. Last year, he was sacked 38 times in 15 games, which doesn’t sound great unless you compare it to 2010, when he was sacked 52 times. So far, rookies Kyle Long and Jordan Mills have held up well on the right side of the line. And Cutler has shown an ability to turn it on in the fourth quarter this season. His defense gives him a chance to do that. Major Wright intercepted a Ben Roethlisberger pass and returned it for a touchdown Sunday. Peppers scored on a fumble that Briggs forced. That sort of thing allows an offense to progress at its own speed. “Third game in this offense, I think we are all still learning a little bit, but it’s a lot easier to make corrections after a win than after a loss,” Cutler said. This is true. Everybody’s happy. The NFC North doesn’t look menacing at the moment, though we’ll find out more when the Bears play the 2-1 Lions on the road Sunday. Your team is undefeated, Bears fans, but this might be a good time for a reminder. Evolution takes time. • Columnist Rick Morressey covers the Bears for the Sun-Times.

First-year Bears coach Trestman bonded quickly with team • MUSICK Continued from page B1 It was Trestman, the firstyear head coach who quickly has bonded with his team. “We had a player hurt,” Trestman said. “And it wouldn’t matter if it was the first player on the team or the 53rd. He had a significant injury, and he was hurting.” The NFL can be a strange business, both wildly generous and horribly cruel. One moment, a young man has millions of dollars in his bank account and keys to a Maserati in his pocket. The next moment, that man is lying on his back on a cool

grass field in Pittsburgh, and trainers are huddled all around, and TV is going to commercials. These are the moments that players across the league fear most. They stand and look down at their teammate and friend, and deep down inside they know it could have been their ACL, their season, their career. “It’s sad,” said Bears wide receiver Earl Bennett, whose locker at Halas Hall is a few feet from Melton’s. “I mean, any time you see a player go down, it’s sad, because you don’t know the extent of the injury. Henry is one of those guys who’s been working hard all offseason. It’s sad to

see him go down.” Now, it’s time for the next man up. In this case, that man is Nate Collins, a 6-foot-2, 296-pound defensive tackle who has yet to make a start in 25 career games with Jacksonville and the Bears. Replacing Collins as a valued backup could be Zach Minter, an undrafted rookie who last played for the Montana State Bobcats in the Big Sky Conference. As for Melton, the only certainty is a long, grueling injury rehabilitation. If all goes well, he should be ready for training camp next season, although it’s anyone’s guess as to which team he’ll be playing for because his

contract expires at the end of this season. “He’s terribly disappointed,” Trestman said. “We’ve just got to let this settle for a while. We lost a very good player. ... “We’re not happy about it, but this is the downside of the National Football League. Players are going to get hurt, and the team’s got to respond.” And the coach has to lead with a heart as well as a headset.

Sprint Cup leaders

NASCAR has been turned upside down IN THE PITS Jenna Fryer

SPRINT CUP SERIES AAA 400 Race time: 1 p.m. Sunday Site: Dover International Speedway, Dover, DE TV: ESPN, WatchESPN

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – These are strange times in NASCAR, where everything has turned upside down in the blink of an eye. Michael Waltrip Racing is fighting for its survival in the wake of a race-fixing scandal and a driver who woke up two Mondays ago in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship is now looking for a job. Sponsors are taking a stand, too – against a team over ethics, maybe even against NASCAR for the perception that all teams are not treated equally. A single-car team based in Colorado suddenly has the most desired seat in the garage, and when the music stops, a pair of respected veterans and the Nationwide Series championship leader may be left standing without rides because the youth movement has clearly taken over. Maybe everything went haywire when Tony Stewart broke his leg Aug. 5. That’s when co-owner Gene Haas went rogue, seizing the opportunity while Stewart was incapacitated to finalize a deal to hire the seemingly untouchable Kurt Busch. Nothing else has made much sense since then. Busch, whose talent had taken tiny Furniture Row Motorsports to the verge of a Chase berth, was suddenly headed back to a dream job. With Stewart sidelined for the rest of the season, defending Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski stuck in a slump and perpetual contender Denny Hamlin out of Chase contention, the field was open to roughly 10 drivers suddenly vying for a golden ticket into NASCAR’s version of the playoffs. As Furniture Row walked the fine line of courting a new driver – the team flew Juan Pablo Montoya to Colorado for a shop tour – while making last-minute prepa-

NASCAR driver Bobby Labonte (47) spins on the front straightaway during the Sprint Cup Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway Sunday in Loudon, N.H. rations for Busch’s Chase push, Michael Waltrip Racing was readying its fleet for the homestretch. MWR had a legitimate title contender in Clint Bowyer, ranked second or third in the standings for 10 consecutive weeks, and Martin Truex Jr. was on the Chase bubble. So everything seemed somewhat normal headed into Richmond, where the Sept. 7 race would end with the top 12 drivers advancing into the Chase and Montoya probably taking the Furniture Row job. Then came the late-race shenanigans by MWR to get Truex the final Chase berth. That’s when things really spun out of control. NASCAR came down hard with sanctions, including Truex’s removal from the Chase field in favor of Stewart teammate Ryan Newman. Longtime Waltrip sponsor NAPA Auto Parts, citing its

belief in “fair play,” then said it would pull its multimillion-dollar sponsorship from MWR at the end of the year. The NAPA decision could force MWR to lay off up to 100 employees and fold its No. 56 car. So Truex went from driving his guts out in an effort to make the Chase to an unwitting participant in a team scandal to being potentially out of work eight weeks from now. Bowyer, one of the most popular drivers in the garage, is now feeling the ire of fans for his role in the Richmond scandal and his promising season has fallen apart after two mediocre races to start the Chase, maybe because of all the pressure. He’s 10th in the standings, essentially out of title contention, and sponsor 5-Hour Energy said it will decide after the season if it will continue its relationship

with MWR. Then 5-Hour President Scott Henderson took a peculiar stance Sunday at New Hampshire, where he seemed to question NASCAR chairman Brian France’s decision not to punish Penske Racing the same way it did MWR for trying to manipulate the Richmond race to get Joey Logano into the Chase, and perhaps for expanding the Chase field to 13 drivers to accommodate Jeff Gordon. Bowyer and Gordon had an issue late last season that took Bowyer out of title contention. “There’s a lot of talk about integrity,” Henderson said. “When the guy who’s in charge can say, ‘I can do whatever I want and I’m going to do it and I just did,’ I wonder about integrity. I want to make sure we can win in this sport, OK?” Should 5-Hour bail at the end of the year, Bowyer will be in far worse shape than Truex. At least Truex has some time to look for a job. In December, there won’t be any jobs to be had. And speaking of jobs, there’s really only one seat open right now – the Furniture Row vacancy that Montoya turned down. Sometime after Richmond, Penske Racing picked up the phone and lured Montoya back to IndyCar. Maybe they wanted the former Indianapolis 500 winner to complement their open-wheel organization, or maybe the Penske folks wanted to clear the path to Colorado for longtime company man Sam Hornish Jr. Currently leading the Nationwide championship race, Hornish is at another crossroads in his career. Penske is full at the Cup level with Keselowski and Logano, and it appears the team wants Hornish’s Nationwide seat for 19-year-old Ryan Blaney, who grabbed his first career victory Saturday night at Kentucky.

NOTES

Kaneland struggles with keeping leads By ANTHONY ZILIS

A closer look at the prep soccer scene

SPOTLIGHT ON ... AKIM SURAJI DeKalb, senior, midfielder The quick Ghanaian has been a driving force behind DeKalb’s successful start to the season. He had a goal and an assist for DeKalb in a 3-1 win over Kaneland, and he’s another weapon on a DeKalb team full of them.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR Sycamore at DeKalb 6 p.m. today No matter where the programs are at the moment, this is a matchup to look forward to. The Barbs are the top team in the area, and the Spartans would certainly take pleasure in spoiling the start to their conference season. Indian Creek at Hiawatha 4:30 p.m. Thursday Both teams are looking for a conference win to hang their hat on, so this is a big opportunity for each side.

POWER RANKINGS 1. DeKalb (6-1, 1-0 Northern Illinois Big 12 East) – The Barbs topped Kaneland to keep the area’s top spot before being rained out against Yorkville. 2. Kaneland (3-4-2, 0-1-1 NI Big 12 East) – Coach Scott Parillo thought his team played well in a loss to DeKalb and a tie against Morris, but the Knights’ coach was disappointed with the start to the conference season. 3. Hinckley-Big Rock (9-3-1, 3-2 Little Ten Conference) – The Royals had a tough time finishing in a 3-2 loss to Newark. 4. Genoa-Kingston (6-4, 3-1 Big Northern Conference) – This is a big week for the Cogs, who take on Burlington Central, Marengo and Plano. 5. Sycamore (1-3) – The Spartans will play DeKalb and Morris this week. 6. Indian Creek (1-7, 1-3 LTC) – The Timberwolves are still trying to find the right mix with only a few holdovers from last year’s starting 11. 7. Hiawatha (0-8, 0-6 LTC) – The Hawks have a few big LTC matchups in the next week, including one against Indian Creek.

Daily Chronicle / Daily-Chronicle.com

sports@daily-chronicle.com Scott Parillo didn’t think his team played poorly in a loss to DeKalb and a tie against Morris to start the NI Big 12 East season, but the Kaneland coach saw his team make costly errors in the pair of disappointing results. “We’re actually playing pretty well, but we’re just not cleaning up the things that we need to clean up,” Parillo said. “When we score first, we’ve got to keep that going and not give up the lead. We did play well against DeKalb, we made a couple of big mistakes and that cost us. Against Morris, we did the same thing. We made a costly mistake.” Work on finishing has been stressed in Kaneland practice recently because Parillo said the Knights haven’t been taking advantage of opportunities throughout the season. The conference season is still young, so Kaneland will have plenty of time to fix its mistakes. “We’ve got to learn from that, hopefully we will, and hopefully we’ll be able to right the ship so to speak,” Parillo said. “I don’t think we played bad in either of the games, it’s just simple mental mistakes, mental errors that we need to fix and hopefully we’ll do that real soon.”

GK defense coming together Genoa-Kingston outscored Rockford Christian and Richmond-Burton, 6-1, last week, and the Cogs seem to be clicking on both ends of the field heading into one of their toughest matchups of the conference season against Burlington Central this week. “I thought we played really well offensively and defensively,” Tate said. “I thought the defense came together and has been jelling here lately.” The Cogs offense has replaced its two key goalscorers from last season with a slew of strong offensive players, and William Crozier’s move from defense to midfield has certainly helped. In Crozier’s place, senior Danny Hansen has emerged as a strong central defender after playing on the outside last season for a defense that has come together nicely in 2013. “He’s improved every year, and this year, he’s more our leader on defense,” Tate said. “I think we’re pretty much about the same as we were last year … We’ve had some pretty solid defenders the last couple of years. We’ve been coming together defensively, knowing where we’re supposed to be and how each other plays a little better than we had earlier in the season.”

Jake Dodd (7) and William Crozier (25) race for a loose ball Thursday in the first half of a match at Genoa-Kingston High School. The Cogs shut out the Timberwolves, 6-0.

No doubt, DeKalb is team to beat in the area, NI Big 12 East DeKalb was always going to be a good team this season, with several starters returning from a team that took home a third straight Northern Illinois Big 12 East championship in 2012. But when they added Dylan Hottsmith, who played football for three years, and Akim Suraji, an exchange student from Ghana, the Barbs added another element – speed. Kaneland learned just how dangerous the two newcomers

VIEWS Anthony Zilis are when they combined for three goals and an assist in a 3-1 DeKalb win last Tuesday. “They’ve got some speed from Dylan and [Suraji],” Parillo said. “They’re very quick. You have to make sure that you keep them in

front of you, and you have to make someone else beat you.” The two new guys have plenty of skill to go along with that speed, but that element has made opposing teams turn their heads. Last week, I wrote in this space that Hottsmith and Suraji may not win the player of the year award in their first season on the team, but the pair both come to the tip of coaches’ tongues when talking about DeKalb. They’re both clearly

in the mix for the honor. The Barbs also have plenty of returning talent, including senior Sean Woodford and junior Trevor Freeland, so another level is expected this season from a team who can compete with quality teams in Class 3A.

Fleck takes BOYS SOCCER: GENEVA 4, KANELAND 0 Impact import Honore paces Vikings against Knights team to Kaneland By IAN MATTHEWS

sports@shawmedia.com

• MAC Continued from page B1 Sebastiano day-to-day: NIU wideout Angelo Sebastiano left Saturday’s game against Eastern Illinois after being hit by Panthers cornerback Pete Houlihan, who was ejected due to the new targeting rule. Huskies coach Rod Carey said Sebastiano had tests done on his head and neck Saturday, but said the sophomore could practice this week. Fleck comes home: On the way out to Iowa last week, P.J. Fleck took his Western Michigan team out to Kaneland High School, his alma mater. The Broncos had a quick practice in Maple Park, which worked out because of its location roughly halfway between Kalamazoo, Mich. and Iowa City, Iowa. ���It was just easy because I knew that we could do it. I knew the surroundings and how to get there, I knew people would be friendly and open to us coming there,” Fleck said. “And it was just a wonderful experience to be back to the high school that did so much for me.” The game at Iowa didn’t go so well, as the Hawkeyes returned two punts and two interceptions for touchdowns. “We flat out got beat in every aspect: offense defense and special teams,” Fleck said. “It was almost like the perfect storm for them. They played almost a perfect game.”

GENEVA – The start of the high school boys soccer season in Illinois also marks the onset of big-money transfers between the high-profile professional soccer clubs in Europe. Geneva has its own version of a high-profile transfer in French foreign exchange student Igor Honore. Honore brings size and speed to an already fast Vikings’ front line that had little trouble with visiting Kaneland in a 4-0 victory Monday night. It’s been an interesting couple of months for Honore, who scored twice in Geneva’s easy win to make it three scores in three varsity contests. Honore came to Geneva (44) a month ago and has been getting acclimated to American culture and language ever since.

“It is a dream to be here and be in the United States – it’s a great country and I’m excited to be here,” Honore said. “I wanted to have a great experience and to adapt to a new culture and to make friends around the world and improve my English. It’s been great on varsity, I’ve really enjoyed it.” Honore supports the Vikings’ already deep front line, giving Geneva coach Ryan Estabrook a dangerous weapon that has been busy since he made his varsity debut against Glenbard South last week. “Igor missed the first week and a half of tryouts because he wasn’t even in the country yet, so then we had to go through all of the paperwork,” Estabrook said. “After his first two JV games where I think he had five goals in two games, we said this is a kid we need to bring up to varsity. We had to wait for the IHSA to approve all of that and since he’s been here, he’s scored three goals in

Kaneland (3-4-2) was never in doubt, as Jason Lagger scored just over 10 minutes into the contest to provide the winning tally. The junior also assisted on Honore’s first goal as well as a Drew Klaus header that made it 3-0. Honore capped the scoring with a beautiful lofted ball that just escaped the reach of Kaneland goalkeeper Jarred Karr. Geneva’s dominating effort did not please Kaneland coach Scott Parillo, who looked on as the Knights’ notched only a pair of shots on goal. Geneva led, 2-0, at halftime. “We didn’t come to play today. We weren’t aggressive Sean King for Shaw Media and we weren’t communicatKaneland defender Esteban Ochoa (left) and Geneva’s Igor Honore at- ing,” Parillo said. “I can make all of the excuses in the world, tempt to control the ball Monday in Geneva.

Hawks should benefit from experience • HAWKS Continued from page B1 “We’re getting stuff down more, but we need to execute everything better,” Grant said. “We do everything in practice perfect, but we can’t bring it out on the field.” While this year’s team is young, the Hawks should benefit from the experience down the road. One of the new transfers, junior Roberto Sylva, has become the vocal leader of

the defense and is capable of making plays with the ball at his feet. Sophomore goalie Jake Mlodzianowski, the younger brother of Marek, who was part of last year’s senior class, also is getting his first heavy doses of playing time at the varsity level after only seeing the field for a few minutes here and there in 2012. Although the stats show Mlodzianowski surrendered seven goals Monday, he came up with more than a dozen key

saves and already showed a willingness to be aggressive off his line and outside the penalty box. After experiencing a lot of immediate success in the program’s first three seasons, Hiawatha will hopefully see the the gains made during this season in future years. “There’s just got to be a lot more experience especially on the fundamental end,” Monestero said. “Until we get over that hump, they’re going to continue to struggle.”

Overprotective parents driving daughter out Dear Abby: I’m a 23-yearold woman who still lives at home. I have been working for the last five years and have saved enough to live comfortably on my own. Unfortunately, my parents have forbidden me to do it because they think I’m being manipulated into it by my boyfriend, that I just want to “do whatever I want” and be out until late (although I’m rarely up past 9 p.m. and they know it), and because I “can’t stand them” anymore. I have no privacy! My mail is opened “mistakenly” and my calls are listened in on even when I politely – and sometimes angrily – ask them not to. They have even imposed a rule that I must show them my bank balance weekly.

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips They have told me I will not leave the house without being married first. I would like to live on my own before I actually marry so I can experience what it’s like. This is something I have always wanted to do. If I do move out, they say I’ll “bring shame and embarrassment” to the family. There seems to be a double standard going on here because my older brother has his girlfriend sleep over. How can I accommodate my parents without being disowned? – Feeling Helpless in Illinois Dear Feeling Helpless: Your

parents have chosen to ignore that you are an adult, self-supporting and entitled to make your own choices. They may be well-meaning, but they are extremely heavy-handed. Their hyper-vigilance – opening your mail, eavesdropping on your phone calls and insisting on checking your bank balance weekly – is over the top. They would like you to be “safely” married before you leave their protection. Is their problem that they disapprove of your boyfriend? If you get a place of your own, do you plan on moving him in? If that’s not the case, there is no reason why your living independently might shame or embarrass them. Not knowing your parents, I can’t judge whether their

threat to disown you is serious or not. However, if it is, realize it’s a form of blackmail, and you will have to decide which is more important – your freedom or their support. Dear Abby: “Lights Out in Federal Way, Wash.” (Aug. 13) asked if it was a “sign” that her deceased parents were watching over her when streetlights would go out as she drove under them on her way home. I understand your desire to give encouragement to someone who has lost her loved ones, but don’t you know that many streetlights are light-activated so that after headlights hit them in just the right way they will turn off? After you pass under them, it becomes dark enough

again and they will turn back on within a few minutes. While I’m sure that given the opportunity this girl’s parents would watch over her, the streetlights she described have nothing to do with the paranormal but have a scientific and logical explanation. – Someone’s Watching in Guilford, Mo. Dear Watching: While many readers shared similar experiences, the majority had a logical explanation as you did. However, I still feel that if what she’s experiencing brings her comfort, the important thing is what she chooses to believe.

Biofeedback can help relieve chronic pain Dear Dr. K: You’ve mentioned biofeedback as a treatment option for several conditions, but I still don’t understand what it is. Could you explain? Dear Reader: Biofeedback is a technique that helps you monitor and control your body’s responses. By learning to control certain functions, you can improve your medical condition, relieve chronic pain, reduce stress, or improve your physical or mental performance. During biofeedback training, a therapist attaches sensors to your body. The type and placement of sensors varies according to what is being measured. Sensors can detect changes in everything from

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff your heart rate, skin temperature or muscle tension to your brain-wave patterns. The machine then translates its measurements into a form of immediate “feedback.” You might see the feedback as a blinking light, a beeping sound, a balloon or a graph. (I’ve put an illustration of what a biofeedback setup for urinary incontinence might look like on my website.) Let’s say your goal is to reduce neck, shoulder and upper back pain. Biofeedback can help you recognize when

you tense the muscles in your back, neck, shoulders or head. It can help you relax them before you experience pain, or it can help you learn to relax muscles that are already in pain. Or say you are learning to control your breathing when you are in pain. A balloon on the screen of the biofeedback machine may represent your breathing rate. You can learn to inflate and deflate the balloon at the target rate. As you gain control over the target body function, you’ll be weaned off the machine. After each session, you’ll get an assignment to practice at home. Regular practice is essential to success. Biofeedback is effective for

certain types of urinary and fecal incontinence. It helps with anal pain related to excessive muscle contractions and constipation caused by problems with the muscles in the anus. It also helps people who suffer from Raynaud’s phenomenon, tension headaches and fibromyalgia. We’re in the early stages of a technology related to biofeedback. Body sensors, and the machine they talk to, are electronic devices. Like all electronics – from computers to smartphones – devices keep getting smaller and more powerful. Already there are sensors that attach to the skin and are so small you barely notice them. They send messages about your body

through wireless signals to machines that interpret them. Some experts predict that people with certain chronic illnesses will soon be constantly monitored, day and night. The illnesses include irregular heart rhythms and epilepsy, for example. The monitoring will spot early warning signs and collect information that affects treatment. It may sound a little like Big Brother, but it could become a valuable aid in diagnosing and treating disease. When the evidence rolls in, we’ll know what type of constant monitoring has health benefits.

It’s difficult to stop the weekend beer bash Dr. Wallace: My son and his three good friends are huge sports fans. Almost every Saturday and Sunday, they are glued to my 60-inch television set watching sports. Football, I think, is their favorite because they cheer or boo the loudest during football games, especially when the Chicago Bears are playing. About a month ago, one of the boys brought over two six-packs of beer, and all four of them had three beers. Since I’m divorced, I decided that it was better that my son drinks in the house rather than somewhere else. But lately the boys have been drinking a lot more. After last Sunday’s Bears game, I counted 20 empty beer cans.

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace That’s a lot of beer for four guys to drink in an afternoon. I told my son that this “beer thing” has gotten out of hand, and I didn’t want any more beer drunk in our house. Of course, my son became upset and said that all of the guys are 18 and that if they were old enough to go to war, they were old enough to enjoy a beer or two (or three) relaxing and watching sports on the weekend. The boys are all high school graduates and work for the same company that is

TODAY – Look at the big picture in the coming months. Consider what’s available to you and how you can reach your goals. Learn all you can and question anything that isn’t clear. Precisely planned changes will lead you to a better place. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – Communication will be your ticket to information that can help you advance. Do your research, and you will avoid making a mistake. Don’t give in to pressure; you’ll need time to do things the right way. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – It’s a good day to get in touch with an old friend. The memories you share will remind you of something that will help prevent you from making a financial mistake. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – Express your thoughts and follow through with your plans. An emotional situation may deter you if you allow it to. Assess the situation, make adjustments and complete whatever you are doing regardless of opposition. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Protect your name and position. Listen to what others say, but don’t make alterations to your plan based on hearsay. Make your decisions based on facts as well as your gut feelings. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – Stick close to home and look over your property and papers. Fixing up your place will make you feel good and give you a reason to entertain someone special. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – Look over contracts, settlements or any personal information that can help you expand an interest or project. Leave time for romance late in the day. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – Use your intelligence and creative talent in the workplace today. Employing your skills diversely will create a stir. The interest you receive from someone with vision will pay off. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – Learn all you can. The more information you have, the easier it will be to impress your peers. A calculated, rather than unpredictable, approach will give you a competitive edge. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – Emotions will escalate causing uncertainty. Don’t believe everything you hear. Go directly to the source and request verification. An unexpected turn of events will be beneficial. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – Live a little. Get out and enjoy new interests or try developing a skill or talent that you find engaging. Romance will develop if you make plans with someone special. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – Your ability to adapt will be crucial when dealing with an ongoing domestic situation. Someone you least expect will come to the rescue. Don’t be too proud to ask for help. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Mixed emotions are likely to confuse you. Rely on past experience and old friends to help you make wise choices. An unusual route will offer the best destination.

owned by the father of one of the boys. What should I do? The “no beer bash” is going to be hard to stop. – Mom, Naperville, Ill. Mom: You’re right that this has gotten out of hand. If they’re going to take advantage of your hospitality – and your 60-inch TV – they are going to have to show you respect and obey your rules. My advice is to lay down the law, in no uncertain terms. Explain to them that if one of them, after getting inebriated in your living room, gets into an auto accident on the way home, you could be held responsible for the damages and even arrested for allowing underage teens to drink in your home with your consent.

8SUDOKU

You have no choice but to inform the boys that you no longer will allow them to drink beer at your house. My guess is that the lure of football on the big TV will be enough to get them to accept your hospitality on your terms. Substitute soft drinks and yummy snacks. Dr. Wallace: I’m 17 and in the 11th grade. I am an A/B student and will attend college next year. I need money and have an opportunity to get a part-time job now waiting tables from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. and four hours on Saturday. If I take this job, I can work there full-time all next summer. My parents are not sure they want me to work parttime because, like most

parents, they think my grades will drop. But my grades won’t drop because of working. My grades are very important to me, and I would be the first to quit if I felt they were in jeopardy. I’d like your opinion, please. If you agree with me, it would help in convincing my parents to say yes. – Lisa, San Bernardino, Calif. Lisa: I think that you should be given the opportunity to work part-time if you can present a daily outline showing the times you will devote to study. The key to working part-time and keeping your grades high is organization!

8CROSSWORD

BRIDGE Phillip Alder

Two chances for contract success Alexandre Dumas, the father, not his son, said, “All human wisdom is summed up in two words – wait and hope.” At the bridge table, one wishes that all wisdom isn’t summed up in two words – play and hope. Yes, you will often be hoping for the best, but ideally you find a 100 percent line of play or defense. In yesterday’s deal, declarer had two chances to make his contract. Today’s is similar. South is in six hearts. West leads the club queen. What are declarer’s two chances? How should he play to combine them? North’s two-no-trump response was the Jacoby Forcing Raise, guaranteeing at least four-card heart support and game-going values. South’s three-spade rebid indicated a singleton (or void) in that suit. Then, after two control-bids (cue-bids), North made a very aggressive jump to slam. If you bid the spots off the cards, you had better play them off, too – and get lucky. South can see two possible losers: one diamond and one club. He has only 11 top tricks: one spade, six hearts, one diamond, two clubs and a spade ruff in South, the shorter trump hand. Declarer’s first thought is probably that the diamond finesse needs to work. But he might also find clubs 3-3. And that should be tried first. South takes the first trick, draws trumps, and plays two more rounds of clubs. Here, they divide evenly and declarer can claim, stating that he will discard one of dummy’s diamonds on his last club. But if the clubs were not 3-3, the diamond finesse would still be available.
