Board reaffirms hospital decision Response to judge’s query states Centegra met most criteria for Huntley proposal By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO HUNTLEY – A state board recently reaffirmed its support for Centegra Health System’s Huntley hospital, telling a Will County judge that Centegra met nearly all of the state’s criteria for hospital approval. The Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board delivered its

response Wednesday to Will County Judge Bobbi Petrungaro, who in a court order earlier this summer told the board to explain why it reversed course and approved a permit for Centegra’s $233 million Huntley project without explanation. The board argued in the response that Centegra was in “substantial conformance” with the board’s approval standards, meeting 17 of the

board’s 20 requirements based upon a review by the board’s staff at the Illinois Department of Public Health. The 17 criteria included compliance on the board’s financial and economic standards and occupancy standards for hospital services such as medical, surgical, pediatric and intensive care. The three standards not met included need in McHenry County for

approval should be appealed. Centegra’s regional competitors, including Mercy Health System, Advocate Health Care and Sherman Health, all filed suit asking for an appeal. Centegra had approached the board three times for approval before the review board reversed its decision in July 2012.

the proposed project, and unnecessary duplication of health care and clinical services in the area. “The board determined that the three noncompliant criteria ... did not outweigh the positive aspects of this project,” the board wrote in its response. The board’s response now sets the stage for a hearing in Petrungaro’s chambers on whether the board’s

By DAVID ESPO The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Time running short, the Democratic-controlled Senate passed urgent legislation Friday to avert a government shutdown early next week, and President Barack Obama lectured House Republicans to stop “appeasing the tea party” and quickly follow suit.

Despite Obama’s appeal, the Senate-passed measure faces a swift demise in the House at the hands of

Voice your opinion Some local food banks say their clientele has increased in the past five years despite the fact that the number of U.S. citizens considered “food insecure” has steadied since 2008’s economic downturn. The U.S. Agriculture Department released its 2012 study on food security recently. About 14.5 percent of the country’s popula-

tion was found to be food insecure, meaning a lack of access to adequate food for active healthy living at some point during the year, according to the USDA. The number has remained about the same the past five years


after it jumped from its 2007 level of 11.1 percent. But since 2008, McHenry County has continued to require greater resources to make sure food is on the table for all families. The Northern Illinois Food Bank has increased distribution to McHenry County by 30 percent during the past five years. “The recession hit, and everyone’s business went down,” said Melody Stanko, Cary-Grove Food Pantry director. “Unfortunately,

our business went the other way.” Stanko said the pantry has nearly doubled its clientele since the recession hit and now serves about 200 families a month. When she started about 15 years ago, the pantry was serving between 30 and 40 families a month. A population increase in Cary accounts for some growth, Stanko said, but she attributes the vast majority to the recession.

Friends, enemies of Ill. taxpayers revealed When it comes to friends and enemies of taxpayers, McHenry County residents have neither – not even Jack Franks. That’s the opinion of Taxpayers United of America, one of the largest taxpayer organizations in the country. TUA last week released its 15th biennial tax survey of the Illinois General Assembly. The survey reveals the tax-and-spending records of every member of the 97th General Assembly from January 2011 to January 2013. “The 97th General Assembly accomplished little to improve the tax landscape for Illinois residents,” TUA President Jim Tobin said in a news release. “Unfortunately, the real legacy of the 97th General Assembly is the lack of any government pension reform. While lawmakers nickel-anddime Illinois taxpayers with increased license plate taxes and numerous


VIEWS Jason Schaumburg speed and red-light cameras, they failed to reform the problem that is bankrupting the state and causing residents to flee in droves.” TUA’s survey examines every lawmaker’s vote on bills regarding tax cuts and tax increases. A lawmaker can achieve a perfect score if he or she votes for each tax cut and against each tax increase. Such a lawmaker would receive a score of 100 percent. Based on TUA’s assessment, there were only five taxpayer friends in the 97th General Assembly, and they all were Republicans from the House: Patricia Bellock (47th District), Paul Evans (102nd), Mike Fortner (95th),

Chad Hays (104th) and Jil Tracy (93rd). Those five scored a 71 percent on the survey. Do you know who else scored a 71 percent? Franks, the Democrat from Marengo. However, Franks failed to make the taxpayer friends list. Why? Because he’s a Democrat. Tobin told me this week that in this survey and the previous survey, TUA refused to put Democrats on the friends list because of the orchestrated and “structured” vote to raise the personal and corporate income tax in Illinois during a lame-duck session in 2011. TUA doesn’t trust Democrats’ votes, so they don’t make the friends list. Franks, by the way, voted against the income-tax increase. As for taxpayer enemies, 20 Illinois senators made the list, including James Meeks (15th), who scored a zero.

Forty-two Illinois House members were on the enemies list, including House Speaker Michael Madigan. Locally, state Sen. Pam Althoff, R-McHenry, scored a 50 percent. State Sen. Dan Duffy, R-Lake Barrington, scored a 64 percent. Besides Franks in the House, Rep. Mike Tryon, R-Crystal Lake, scored a 50 percent. The late Mark Beaubien, R-Barrington Hills, didn’t score in the survey. His replacement, Kent Gaffney, R-Lake Barrington, scored a 64 percent.

Climate panel forecast: Higher seas, temps The ASSOCIATED PRESS STOCKHOLM – Top scientists have a better idea of how global warming will shape the 21st century: In a new report, they predict sea levels will be much higher than previously thought and pinpoint how dangerously hot it’s likely to get. In its most strongly worded report yet, an international climate panel said it was more confident than ever that global warming is a man-made problem and likely to get worse. The report was welcomed by the Obama administration and environmental advocates who said it made a strong and urgent case for government action, while skeptics scoffed at it. “There is something in this

warming of the planet since 1950 “unequivocal” and “unprecedented” and blamed increases in heat-trapping greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide from the burning of coal, oil and gas. The United Nations created the panel of climate researchers in 1990 to tell world leaders what science is saying about global warming and how bad it will get. This is the group’s fifth major state-ofthe-science report, approved by nearly 200 nations at the end of a weeklong meeting in

Stockholm. In its last massive report in 2007, the panel said it was “very likely” – or 90 percent certain – that global warming was due to human activity, particularly carbon dioxide from things like coal-burning power plants and car exhaust. The new report moves that to 95 percent or “extremely likely.” The panel also fine-tuned its predictions for temperature changes and sea levels by the end of this century. Their worst case scenario previously put sea levels increase at just shy of 2 feet by 2100; now they put it at slightly more than 3 feet. They cite better understanding of how much glaciers and ice sheets are melting and how water expands as it warms.

Gas prices fall; more drops likely The ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK – Gasoline prices have fallen steadily throughout September, and drivers should look forward to even cheaper fill-ups in the weeks ahead. The national average price for a gallon of gasoline is now $3.42, down from $3.59 on Sept. 1. The price is the lowest it’s been at this time of year since 2010 and is likely to keep falling. “It’s a layup for me to predict lower prices until Columbus Day weekend,” says Tom Kloza, Chief Oil Analyst at and Oil Price Information Service, which tracks retail and wholesale gasoline prices. Wholesale gasoline prices have fallen faster in recent days than pump prices, so drivers can expect to pay even less as the pump prices catch up. Gas prices tend to decline soon after Labor Day, but last year they didn’t start going down until mid-October. There are a number of reasons for this fall’s drop in price, experts say: • Refiners can switch to cheaper blends of gasoline in the winter months as cleanair rules are relaxed. • Gasoline demand declines in the fall after the summer driving season ends. At the same time supplies rise, because refiners are still making gasoline as they keep operations humming to make heating oil for winter and diesel and jet fuel for shippers. • This year, refineries have been relatively problem free. There have been no hurricanes, and few unexpected problems at refineries or pipelines, unlike last year. Last year at this time drivers were paying 37 cents per gallon more than they are this year, on average.

Court: No pay freeze during appeal The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – Gov. Pat Quinn lost two attempts Friday to stop legislators from being paid while he appeals a court ruling that determined it was unconstitutional of him to freeze the money in an effort to get lawmakers to solve Illinois’ pension fund problem. The first payments since July went out Friday morning to lawmakers with direct deposit, but the state had held up paper checks for 21 lawmakers and bonus money for those in leadership positions until Cook County Judge Neil Cohen decided whether the money could be withheld pending the outcome of Quinn’s appeal. Cohen said Quinn violated the Illinois Constitution by withholding the checks when he used his line-item veto to cut $13.1 million for lawmaker salaries from the state budget. Quinn had said he was angry that legislators hadn’t found a fix for Illinois’ nearly $100 billion pension shortfall. He also refused to accept his own paychecks. But Cohen said during Friday’s hearing that Quinn had no right to violate the constitution, no matter his intentions.

Gov. Pat Quinn speaks at a news conference Friday in Chicago after Cook County Judge Neil Cohen refused his request to stop legislators from being paid while he appeals a court ruling that determined it was unconstitutional to freeze the money in an attempt to get lawmakers to solve Illinois’ pension crisis. “I do understand where his heart is,” Cohen said. “But that’s politics. That’s not the law.” Immediately after the ruling, Quinn’s attorneys filed an emergency request to the appellate court asking it to do what Cohen would not – stop any checks from going in the mail and halt any future paychecks while the appeal is being considered.

But in a one-sentence order late Friday, Appellate Judge Maureen E. Connors denied Quinn’s motion. A spokesman for Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka said the checks for the past two months already were being sent and the office had begun processing the next monthly check, scheduled to be paid Monday. Quinn said that regardless

of the ruling, he believes public opinion is on his side. “If you don’t get [pension reform] done ... then they shouldn’t be paid,” he said. “I think that’s what the public feels. That’s what the taxpayers feel. That’s what I feel.” Cohen ordered Topinka to immediately pay legislators the monthly paychecks they’ve missed since the governor’s July veto.

Use of anesthetic for execution may backfire Suppliers might limit exports of it By JIM SALTER The Associated Press ST. LOUIS – The planned use of a common anesthetic in a Missouri execution is raising concerns that the anti-death penalty European Union could limit export of the drug, endangering the supply of a vital medication used every day in thousands

of American hospitals and clinics. The execution scheduled for Oct. 23 would be the first to use propofol, which is by far the nation’s most popular anesthetic. About 50 million vials are administered annually in some 15,000 locations. That’s about four-fifths of all anesthetic procedures, according to the American Society of Anesthesiologists. Propofol is popular because it works quickly and patients wake up faster with fewer side effects

such as nausea. Roughly 85 percent of the U.S. supply of propofol is made in Europe, where capital punishment is outlawed, by the German company Fresenius Kabi. Export is controlled by the European Union, which prohibits trade in goods that could be used for executions. The EU is reviewing whether to subject propofol to that rule. If it is added to the regulation, propofol would be subject to export controls, not a complete ban, EU spokes-

woman Maja Kocijancic said. Still, any change in export practices could have a drastic effect on propofol’s availability in the U.S., said Matt Kuhn, a spokesman for Fresenius Kabi USA. The Food and Drug Administration is worried about any move that could affect access to propofol. FDA spokeswoman Erica Jefferson said the agency is weighing how to reach out to European officials to ensure the drug remains readily available.

8STATE BRIEFS Judge: Gay marriage lawsuit can proceed CHICAGO – A lawsuit seeking to overturn Illinois’ ban on gay marriage can move forward in the courts, a judge ruled Friday, buoying hopes among some samesex couples that it’s just a matter of time before they can marry in the state. Cook County Circuit Judge Sophia Hall denied a motion to dismiss the lawsuit, saying the 25 couples who filed it can argue that they have a fundamental right to marry and that the state’s 17-year-old ban discriminates against them based on sexual orientation. The state law is being defended by five downstate clerks after Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez and Attorney General Lisa Madigan refused to do so, saying they agreed that the ban is unconstitutional.

Police in Arlington Heights – where three of the victims died – said in a news release that a task force made up of their department, the Illinois State Police and departments in Chicago, Elk Grove Village, Lombard, Schaumburg and Winfield will run the investigation. The FBI will continue to “provide resources in areas of expertise as needed to support the investigation,” according to the release.

Local food insecurity rate is 9.1%

U.S., Iran leaders make historic call


WASHINGTON – The United States and Iran took a historic step toward ending more than three decades of estrangement on Friday when President Barack Obama and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani spoke by phone and agreed to work on resolving global suspicions that Tehran is trying to build a nuclear weapon. The 15-minute call capped a week of seismic shifts in the relationship that revolved around Rouhani’s participation in the annual U.N. meeting of world leaders. The night before the two leaders spoke, U.S. and European diplomats hailed a “very significant shift” in Iran’s attitude and tone in the first talks on the nuclear standoff since April. The diplomatic warming began shortly after Rouhani’s election in June. But it is rooted in both presidents’ stated campaign desires – Obama in 2008 and


Continued from page A1 And unlike the country’s food insecurity numbers, the impact on a local scale has come gradually. Stanko said the pantry has been lucky to have community support from individual donors and businesses such as Jewel-Osco to cover the extra need, but she’s eagerly awaiting a turn in the trend. There was a glimpse this summer. In the past three or four months, while the pantry has continued to take on new families, the total number it serves has leveled off. Stanko is tempering her enthusiasm, especially with the colder months approaching. “I’m not ready to make that statement that says that’s going to continue,” she said. According to Feeding America’s Map the Meal Gap 2013 analysis, which is based on statistics from 2011, McHenry County has a food insecurity rate of 9.1 percent. That’s the second lowest in the 13 county region served by the Northern Illinois Food Bank, behind Will County at 8 percent. DuPage County, where 9.2 percent are food insecure, is a close third. Food insecurity, which is determined based on responses to survey questions about difficulty in meeting food needs, is possible due to any outside factor that might affect a family’s ability to put food on the table. Donna Lake, director of communications for the Northern Illinois Food Bank, said the agency has increased the amount of food it provides each year to account for need. In fiscal 2013, the food bank provided the equivalent of about 42 million meals, up from about 33 million the year before, to its network of 800 food pantries and feeding programs. Across Illinois, about 13 percent of the state was considered food insecure in 2012, according to the USDA. “Really what we’re seeing is a lot more working poor folks,” Lake said. “But they’re just not making enough to make ends meet.” Lake said donors have increased the amount of food provided to account for greater need, but she added that the food bank needs more. Linda Lindstrom, site director at the Harvard Food Pantry, said she’s seen a similar uptick in families served. The Harvard pantry serves more than 250 families twice a month, a number that has “increased a lot,” Lindstrom said. But the pantry has been lucky to have community support to shoulder the extra families, she said. “If you have a need, all you do is open your mouth and everyone comes to the call here,” Lindstrom said. “It’s a wonderful operation.”

Storm clouds hang over Capitol Hill in Washington on Friday as the Republican-controlled House and the Democrat-controlled Senate stand at an impasse with Congress continuing to struggle over how to fund the government and prevent a possible shutdown.

What a shutdown means By CONNIE CASS The Associated Press WASHINGTON – If the government “shuts down” next Tuesday, your mail will still come. Doctors will see Medicare patients. NASA will keep talking to the astronauts circling Earth on the Space Station. In fact, the majority of government will remain on the job. The closings would hit random Americans first: vacationers hoping to take in Mount Rushmore or a Smithsonian museum. Homebuyers seeking government-backed mortgages. Veterans appealing the denial of disability benefits. Perhaps on the bright side – for some – tax audits would be suspended. Troubles would spread the longer a shutdown lasted. A prolonged furlough of more than one-third of civilian federal workers could mean delays in processing applications for new Social Security disability claims. Lost profits for businesses that sell goods or services to the government. Problems hotels and restaurants that rely on tourism near national parks. Longer waits for kids seeking delinquent child support. And, of course, a shut-

• Prison guards, FBI agents and the Border Patrol will be at their posts. • The military’s 1.4 million active-duty personnel will stay on duty. • Social Security payments and veteran’s benefits will go out. Foodstamp dollars should continue to flow. • The post office will keep delivering; its budget isn’t affected because it comes from selling stamps and delivering packages. down would mean no paychecks for an estimated 800,000 furloughed workers. They might get paid later for the missed days but couldn’t count on that. Don’t blame them for slacking off; the law forbids volunteering to work for free from home. Kaitlin Thomas, who toured the National Museum of American History on Friday, found the whole thing a little annoying. “If the public is paying for this, why are they shutting it down?” said Thomas, visiting from New York City. The deadline nearing, a government of more than 2.1 million civilian employees scrambled on Friday to update its plans determining who would stay and who would go home, what would get done and what would have to wait. The equation was complicated by the complexity of federal budget rules; some pots of money would be

caught up in a shutdown and some wouldn’t. Ironically, a shutdown would have virtually no impact on President Barack Obama’s health care law – the program at the heart of his showdown with House Republicans. The program that detractors dubbed “Obamacare” is set to roll out its individual insurance plans on Tuesday, government shutdown or no, and people hoping to sign up on that first day shouldn’t be affected. Some of the nation’s behind-the-scenes health and safety work would stop, however. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention would be severely limited in spotting or investigating disease outbreaks, from flu to that mysterious MERS virus from the Middle East. The government wouldn’t process auto recall information or conduct new car safety testing.

No clear timetable for House vote on bill • SHUTDOWN Continued from page A1 tea party conservatives who are adamantly opposed to funding that the measure includes for the three-year-old health care law. The Senate’s 54-44 vote was strictly along party lines in favor of the bill, which would keep the government operating routinely through Nov. 15. Friday’s Senate vote masked a ferocious struggle for control of the Republican Party pitting Boehner and Senate Leader Mitch McConnell against rebels led by relatively junior lawmakers, Cruz and Mike Lee of Utah and a few dozen allies in the

House among them. The outcome of that contest – more than differences between the two political parties – is likely to determine whether the government shuts down for the first time in nearly two decades. Cruz told reporters he’s had many conversations with fellow conservatives, adding, “I am confident the House of Representatives will continue to stand its ground, continue to listen to the American people and ... stop this train wreck, this nightmare that is Obamacare.” The House is scheduled to be in session both Saturday and Sunday, but it is unclear when it will vote on a new bill to avert a shutdown, and what health care-related

items it will include. Obama spoke more than an hour later at the White House, where he said it was up to House Republicans to follow the Senate’s lead and prevent a shutdown. He said the struggle has nothing to do with budget deficits, and said if Republicans “have specific ideas on how to genuinely improve the [health care] law rather than gut it, rather than delay, it rather than repeal it, I am happy to work with them.” He also said even a shutdown would not prevent the scheduled opening of socalled health care exchanges next Tuesday through which millions of Americans will be able to shop for coverage. “That’s a done deal,” he said.

Board disagrees with staff on some criteria • HOSPITAL Continued from page A1 A hearing date regarding the lawsuit has not been determined. In its six-page response, the board also defended some of the criteria that the board’s staff determined Centegra had not met. On need, the board wrote that based upon staff reviews from June 2011 to July 2012 the need for medical surgical and intensive care units was increasing in McHenry County. The board also disagreed with staff that the Centegra project would unnecessarily duplicate hospital services. Existing facilities 30 and 45 minutes from the proposed Huntley location were operating under target occupancy, but board members concluded that Centegra’s 128-bed hospital would improve access to hospital services and create a more comprehensive health care delivery system in the county. Centegra’s proposed number of medical surgical beds, intensive care units and obstetric beds for the Huntley

hospital also fell within the number of calculated beds needed in the county based upon staff recommendations and an October 2011 inventory update, the board wrote. Susan Milford, Centegra’s senior vice president for strategy and development, said that the board’s response shows continued confidence and support for the Huntley project. “We are very pleased with the board’s reaffirmation of the strength of this project and its benefit to the people of our community,” Milford said. “We look forward to the judge upholding the [board’s] decision to approve Centegra Hospital – Huntley.” One of Centegra’s competitors, however, withheld reaction to the board’s response. Mercy Vice President Richard Gruber said that Mercy officials are still reviewing the board’s response as they look ahead to the hearing in Will County. “We will argue our case in front of the judge when the opportunity affords itself,” Gruber said. “The attention is on the next step of the process, which will be the hearing.”

Rouhani this year – to break through 34-year-old barriers and move toward diplomacy. Iran is also seeking quick relief from blistering economic sanctions that the U.S. and its Western allies have imposed on Tehran to punish it for refusing to scale back its nuclear activities. Iran insists the program is for peaceful purposes, but years of stonewalling inspections and secrecy about its activities have fueled fears it is seeking to build warheads. Rouhani and Obama spoke while the Iranian president was in his car and headed to the airport to fly back to Tehran, with Obama at his desk in the Oval Office. Rouhani’s aides initially reached out to arrange the conversation, and the White House placed the call. The last direct conversation between the leaders of the two countries was in 1979 before the Iranian Revolution toppled the pro-U.S. shah and brought Islamic militants to power.

Player should inspire us all The Northwest Herald Editorial Board offers this week’s thumbs up and thumbs down: Thumbs up: To Cary-Grove volleyball player Delany Bayer, who continues to play volleyball at a high level while managing Type 1 diabetes. Bayer, a sophomore libero, has to constantly monitor her blood sugar sure to ensure she is at a safe level. While doing that, Bayer has helped educate her teammates about diabetes as well. Thumbs down: To Judge Neil Cohen for ruling Thursday that state lawmakers can get paid. In July, Gov. Pat Quinn struck from the state budget the money to pay state representatives and senators because of their inability to pass pension reform. Quinn voluntarily gave up his pay. House Speaker Michael Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton sued Quinn, saying his line-item veto of the salaries for lawmakers was unconstitutional. Vendors who have been waiting months to be paid are still out of luck. We still don’t have pension reform. But thanks to this judge, lawmakers are about to get the two months of pay they missed – plus interest – for continually not doing their job. Thumbs up: To teacher Holly Latas’ fifthgraders at Alden-Hebron Elementary School, who have committed themselves to the cause of organ donation awareness. The students gave a presentation to Alden-Hebron High School students this week after studying the issue and learning about the need for more organ donors. They are planning another presentation for the school board. What a great citizenship lesson these kids have learned and demonstrated. Thumbs down: To inadequate conditions at juvenile detention centers in Illinois. A report released this week found a number of troubling problems at the state’s juvenile detention centers, including juveniles being improperly medicated, routinely subjected to more solitary confinement than necessary, and several being kept at prison facilities after release dates because state officials could not find them outside housing. A second report found that conditions at a mental health facility in Kewanee have been complicated by an influx of maximumsecurity inmates after the closure of another facility in Joliet. More than 800 juveniles are housed in these facilities, and it is in everyone’s best interest to help rehabilitate these children. That can’t be done in inadequate conditions.

8HOW CONGRESS VOTED A look at recent major votes in Congress and how those who represent McHenry County voted:

Stopgap spending bill The purpose: A stopgap bill that would fund the government if all spending for the Affordable Care Act is eliminated. The vote: Passed in the House by 20 votes Sept. 20 – 230 voted “yes,” 189 voted “no” and 14 didn’t vote. Local representation: U.S. Reps. Peter Roskam (R-6) and Randy Hultgren (R-14) voted “yes.”

Food stamps The purpose: A bill that cuts billions of dollars from the food stamp program. The vote: Passed in the House by three votes Sept. 19 – 217 voted “yes,” 210 voted “no” and six didn’t vote. Local representation: U.S. Reps. Peter Roskam (R-6) and Randy Hultgren (R-14) voted “yes.” Source: The New York Times’ Inside Congress website

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Hospital costs To the Editor: Interesting article (“Immigrant care costs on the rise,” Sept. 18). This article makes the claim that Centegra Health System “just takes the loss” when it treats undocumented immigrants or others with low and/or no insurance. It also said that in the case of undocumented immigrants, patients who require post-hospital treatment might often stay at the hospital for weeks and months at a time since nursing homes and rehab facilities are reluctant to accept the cost to service those patients. The result often leaves the hospital to pick up the tab for the treatment. Nursing homes and rehab facilities are private facilities and cannot pass the cost onto other patients. “But at Centegra Health System, that is often the cost of doing business as a community health-care provider. It also is an issue that applies to every patient who is uninsured or underinsured, according to Astrid Larsen, director of care coordination at Centegra.” If this hospital or any other hospital absorbed these costs, the

doctors and staff would quit and go elsewhere, and the hospital would be out of business. Face it, folks. There’s no way any hospital can absorb these costs without passing them onto paying customers, patients with insurance. Know why your insurance premiums increase? Read this over again.

Dredging response To the Editor: Kathy Hunt’s letter to the editor (“Dredging questions,” Sept. 14) begs to be challenged. Contrary to her claims, Wonder Lake can’t spend one dime on a “dump site next to a school.” After the last required permit is received, two silt retention ponds – not “dumps” – will be constructed on a 122-acre, well-fenced site adjacent to Galt Airport, a mile from a school. Wonder Lake’s silt and water have been tested over and over and always found safe. She wants a gameplan, but this is no game. Dredging plans are based on scientific and engineering knowledge and data. Plans have

existed since 1964, when MPOA first proposed dredging. With each dredging attempt professionals have revamped the plans. Her last question: “Did you say yes?” Lake-rights subdivisions elect or appoint representative directors to the MPOA board. By solid majorities, Wonder Lake’s representatives repeatedly say “yes” to save our lake. Rayne Gerhardt Wonder Lake

Disgust for Roskam, Hultgren To the Editor: Shame on you, Congressmen Peter Roskam and Randy Hultgren, for cutting $40 billion from food stamps for senior citizens and

veterans. Why do these two congressmen and the other 215 Republicans who voted for this bill hate the poor, elderly and veterans? They send these veterans to fight our wars, but they can’t give them a helping hand when they need it. I am so disgusted with these two congressmen voting against the poor, elderly and veterans, while Roskam is accused of getting free trips paid for by the government of a foreign country. I guess that’s OK for him. Why don’t the people in his district ask for his expense reports just to see how well he eats while on our dime. Shame! Shame! Shame! Bert Gregory Rolling Meadows


White House dragging its feet on safety


Wrong budget discussions It must be terribly frustrating to work for the Congressional Budget Office. Every year around this time, the group issues a report about just how grim the nation’s long-term financial health is. A few lawmakers wring their hands and say they will get serious about fixing the problem, but then they don’t. We, as a nation, rush toward a debt-induced disaster if no one heeds the warning. The nonpartisan budget office issued its new forecast this month. It offered one glimmer of hope. Short-term, the federal budget is in better shape today than in recent years. Thank a slowly recovering economy, sequestration spending cuts and a few tax changes. Annual deficits that topped $1 trillion in recent years have shrunk to their smallest level since 2008. They will continue to decline until about 2018. Then, if nothing changes, everything starts going haywire again. Budget deficits will increase each year, driving up the national debt. The Congressional Budget Office once again has given America a peek at its future. If it comes to pass, in 2038, Americans will hold few fond memories for those who were warned that fiscal disaster was coming and did nothing. Kansas City Star

By GREG GULBRANSEN Special to The Washington Post Five years after my son Cameron died in a car crash, Congress passed a law, named after my boy, to ensure that such a tragedy would never happen again. But five more years have passed, and the safety fix that Congress ordered completed by 2011 has been needlessly delayed. I’m suing the Obama administration to compel it to do what Congress directed. One evening in 2002, as I backed my SUV into my driveway, I checked my rearview and side mirrors, but there was something they could not show me: Cameron had followed me outside and was standing, in his pajamas, directly behind my vehicle. I ran over my son. I thought my tragedy was a freak accident. But I soon learned that each week dozens of toddlers in the United States are struck by drivers backing up.

Rearview and side mirrors show a lot, but there is a large area directly behind every vehicle that can’t be seen by drivers. Auto manufacturers have engineered a fix: the rear-view camera. But most cars don’t have them. After learning of the deaths of children such as Cameron, my representative in Congress, Peter King, R-N.Y., worked with Rep. Jan Schakowsky, D-Ill., to propose legislation requiring new vehicles to ensure rear visibility through cameras or other methods. Earlier lifesaving innovations that society now takes for granted, such as seat belts and air bags, once were an optional luxury before the federal government required them in every vehicle. The bill passed the House easily and the Senate unanimously; President George W. Bush signed it into law in February 2008. I thought the safety improvements would start then, but, like


most laws, the legislation did not set specific requirements. It ordered the Transportation Department to issue, within three years, the regulation that would set the exact standards and give them legal force. The law allowed the department to seek an extension if that deadline “cannot be met.” Five agonizing years later, amid claims of unjustified costs, the rule has not been issued. Each year more than 200 individuals are killed and 18,000 injured, according to Transportation Department estimates. In November 2011, the agency sent its final draft of the rule to the White House regulations office. The review process is supposed to take no more than 120 days. This June, the administration sent the rule back for more study – even though the Transportation Department already has conducted research it has characterized as “extensive.” The department wrote to Congress that it is working to complete the rule by 2015.

Usually Congress is criticized for gridlock. But on this issue, Congress stepped up and issued a clear mandate to prevent these tragedies. The Obama administration – and, probably, anonymous lobbyists – is obstructing Congress’ will and public safety. So I’m asking a federal court to order the Transportation Department to issue the rear-visibility regulation. The case’s coalition of petitioners, represented by Public Citizen, includes another parent who struck her child while backing up her car, along with Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety, and Consumers Union. Congress legislated the 2011 deadline so that the rules would be issued in a timely fashion to avoid heartbreaking, preventable deaths. This will come too late for Cameron, but it will save thousands of other children’s lives. • The writer is a pediatrician in New York.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

DETECTIVE HELPS SAVE CHILD’S LIFE BULL VALLEY – A Bull Valley detective on Thursday helped save the life of a toddler by performing CPR, according to a police report. Detective Jim Page responded when there was a call just after 2:20 p.m Thursday on Route 120 west of Thompson Road for an unconscious 14-month-old, Jackson Gordon, who had a seizure. Jackson’s mother, Abby Ramirez of Wonder Lake, was holding the child, who was bluish, struggling to breath and appeared to be choking, according to the report. Page cleared Jackson’s airway, but he stopped breathing and had no heartbeat. Page started chest compressions, which led to shallow breathing for a brief period. When breathing stopped again, Page struck Jackson on the back several times to help drain fluid from his mouth. “After about 30 seconds, the child awoke and began to cry,” the report said. Members of the Wonder Lake Fire Protection District arrived and took Jackson to Centegra Hospital – McHenry. Jackson later was transferred to Lutheran General Hospital and was released on Friday.

Breaking news @

Officials seek RTA answers Franks, Duffy question how Hill is conducting search for board member By JIM DALLKE Area lawmakers are questioning whether McHenry County Board Chairwoman Tina Hill is providing enough information on her search for the county’s new Regional Transportation Authority Board representative.

State Rep. Jack Franks, D-Marengo, and state Sen. Dan Duffy, R-Lake Barrington, wrote a letter to Hill on Wednesday and said the process needed more transparency and that information about how to apply should be more widely publicized. “I want this to be a full process where anyone can apply and that the application process makes sense,”

Franks said. “Make it open and transparent. We’ve never had that in this county. It’s only been a good old boys network where you have to know somebody.” In the letter, Franks and Duffy listed several questions they believe needed answering, including whether there was a formal application for the position, how many applications

the County Board received, the date the application process will be closed and what the board is doing to engage the residents of McHenry County in the process. Franks said he spoke with Hill twice since he sent the letter, and she agreed the community needed more

Home of the Sparrow facilities manager Dan Donovan (left) and housing case manager Kelley Williams inspect an apartment Tuesday in Fox River Grove. Home of the Sparrow is a nonprofit that provides transitional housing and services for homeless women and their children. The organization is piloting a new housing program known as rapid rehousing, which aims to get homeless families directly into a house without having to spend significant time in a shelter.

Pilot program at Home of the Sparrow is ‘cutting edge’ By LAWERENCE SYNETT McHENRY – A pilot program at Home of the Sparrow places the homeless in permanent housing quicker and allows the nonprofit to increase its clientele. The Rapid Re-Housing Pilot Program started in July and eliminates the need for homeless people to enter a transitional shelter while searching for a permanent

residence by placing them directly into a home. “It’s a cutting edge way to work with the homeless,” said Emily Landis, vice president of program services. “We can take people from literal homelessness and put them into their own home, lessening the impact of their situation.” Home of the Sparrow increased the number of people it served by about 32 percent last year, data show. The organization placed 43 women and

116 children in transitional shelters and apartments. Of those served, about 85 percent found permanent housing. The McHenry-based group also added a fifth thrift store and donation center last year. To combat the increase, the agency expanded the Affordable Housing Program and launched the Rapid Re-Housing Pilot Program. Staff has since reduced the average length of stay from

Additional hopefuls enter primary races By KEVIN P. CRAVER A second McHenry County Board district is on track to have a contested Republican primary. District 1 incumbent Robert Nowak, R-Cary, has pulled a petition, meaning there are likely three candidates running in the March 18 primary for two open seats. Andrew Gasser, a Fox River Grove blogger and president of a tea party group that helps advise leaders on space policy, has announced his candidacy, and former Barrington Hills Trustee Elaine Ramesh has pulled a petition. All 12 incumbent County Board members who are up for election next year – 10 Republicans and both of its Democratic members – have pulled petitions or an-

nounced their candidacies. The other district with a contested GOP primary race so far is District 3. Incumbent Joe Gottemoller, R-Crystal Lake, is running, and former County Board member Mary Donner and District 47 school board member Nancy Gonsiorek have pulled petitions. It could be a four-way race – former Assistant State’s Attorney Sarah Jansen has pulled a petition, but is not yet sure whether she will run. District 3 incumbent Mary McClellan, R-Holiday Hills, is running instead for county clerk against fellow District 3 representative Nick Provenzano, R-McHenry, and county clerk employee Keith Addison of Hebron. County Clerk Katherine Schultz, first elected in 1990, is not seeking a seventh term. District 1 covers southern

and eastern Algonquin townships and a sliver of Grafton Township, including all or most of Algonquin, Cary, Fox River Grove and Barrington Hills. District 3 includes all of Nunda Township, southeastern McHenry and northeastern Algonquin townships, including all or parts of Crystal Lake, McHenry, Bull Valley, Prairie Grove, Holiday Hills and Lakemoor. Democratic board members Nick Chirikos, R-Algonquin, and Paula Yensen, D-Lake in the Hills, are running for their respective District 1 and District 5 seats, meaning those races will be contested in November. The county sheriff’s race also will be contested. The winner of the GOP primary

nine months to four-and-ahalf months, data show. “We want to speed up what we are doing to get people out and more people in,” Landis said. “By doing that, we are opening the doors for other homeless families.” There are four families enrolled in the pilot program, and 33 women and children were placed in 13 additional affordable housing units the

Huntley parks plan could go to voters By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO HUNTLEY – With planning already underway, the Huntley Park District likely will ask voters through referendum in March to finance a $20 million expansion of its facilities. But the bonds needed to finance the expansion that would create an indoor turf facility and a competitive swimming pool near Deicke Park would not add to residents’ property-tax bills, Executive Director Thom Palmer said. That’s because the district would look to restructure its existing debt in a way that would not force increases to its property-tax levy. Existing debt on the district’s REC Center and Stingray Bay Aquatic Center are set to expire in 2015, with bonds on the Pinecrest Golf Club set to

Message and data rates apply. be retired by 2018. “It puts us in a position to reissue bonds to build new facilities without increasing the tax burden to residents,” Palmer said. The district would restructure its debt if voters endorse the referendum, Palmer said. The park district board has not yet finalized the referendum, but members are strongly considering the March primary election, he said. The proposed indoor turf facility would be on roughly 10 acres east of Stingray Bay and south of the REC Center.

Family fun at Fall Fest

Northwest Herald /


Names of 16 arrestees released By JIM DALLKE

Sarah Nader –

Ryan Sebastian, 4, of Lake in the Hills goes down a slide Friday while attending the eighth annual Fall Fest at Deicke Park in Huntley. Fall Fest runs through Sunday and features a carnival, pancake breakfast, live music, a craft show, petting zoo, hayrides, a car show and other family-friendly events.

Program could become permanent in spring • PROGRAM Continued from page B1 organization obtained in March. People were selected for the rapid rehousing program based on several factors and Housing and Urban Development’s definition of homelessness. That includes people living in a shelter or any other place deemed unfit for human habitation, Landis said. They also

can’t have a serious barrier or condition that would prevent them from affording the residence. Those who qualify meet with Home of the Sparrow officials, who make the decision whether the applicants could make it on their own or should be placed in the homes. To cut down on program costs, the nonprofit forged alliances with local landlords and helps pay the first few months’ rent for the tenant, Landis said. The pilot pro-

gram costs $20,000. “What we realized a couple years ago was putting homeless individuals into shelters is not the best way to treat homelessness,” Landis said. “It is a very stressful environment, and we really needed to expand our services for people.” The pilot program could become permanent in the spring, and officials expect to add five units to the Affordable Housing Program in May.

Committee developing ways to reach voters • HUNTLEY Continued from page B1 It would allow residents and youth leagues to play soccer, baseball, softball, football and lacrosse year round, Palmer said. A committee of residents already has started to meet and develop ways to reach voters and explain the need for a referendum, Palmer said. The district also has authorized soil testing at the location of the proposed facility. Officials hope to add a recreational area within the facility that would contain bocce

ball courts and multipurpose rooms. The district does have existing playing fields at the proposed location, Palmer said, but the district would look to relocate them. The competitive swimming pool would be added on to Stingray Bay and serve as a prime venue for the district’s growing youth swim team program and the senior swim team at Sun City Huntley, Palmer said. The district typically has to close its only pool at the aquatic center by midafternoon, when those groups are scheduled to use it, because of inadequate space.

A portion of that $20 million also would be used to buy land for future expansion, Palmer said, but district officials have yet to identify specific parcels. He said residents have been asking for these types of facilities since 2011. Residents surveyed as part of the district’s comprehensive plan identified many of those needs. “We know currently that quite a number of our athletic groups in town go out of town to take advantage of these types of facilities,” he said. “We would like to service our residents and not have them leave town.”

65th House District covers sliver of county • RACES Continued from page B1 between Undersheriff Andrew Zinke and retired Des Plaines Police Cmdr. Bill Prim will face a November challenge from independent candidate Jim Harrison, a labor attorney and former sheriff’s deputy. Another contested countywide GOP primary will be that of county treasurer – Chief Deputy Treasurer Glenda Miller and Crystal Lake City Council member Jeff Thorsen have announced. Like Schultz, Sheriff Keith Nygren and Treasurer Bill LeFew will not seek re-election. Nygren and LeFew both took

office in 1997. County voters next year also will elect one U.S. senator, their representatives in the Illinois and U.S. houses of representatives, and all statewide constitutional offices. Voters in the 33rd Senate District will elect their state senator – Sen. Karen McConnaughay, R-St. Charles, drew a two-year term after the 2012 election in the wake of redistricting after the 2010 U.S. Census. She is running for re-election. Voters in the 65th House District will elect a new representative – Rep. Tim Schmitz, R-Batavia, is not seeking another term. The district, a new addition to McHenry County

under redistricting, includes only a sliver of the county, stretching from Huntley and Sun City south through Elgin to Batavia. The 63rd House District that covers most of McHenry County will also be contested in November. Incumbent Jack Franks, D-Marengo, will face Republican challenger Steven Reick of rural Harvard. McHenry County voters in March will weigh in on a binding referendum asking whether the County Board chairman should be popularly elected, which is done in most other collar counties. The filing period for petitions is from Nov. 25 through Dec. 2.

Application deadline extended until Oct. 25 • RTA Continued from page B1 information about the application process. Friday originally was set as the application deadline, but Hill said she has extended it until 2 p.m. Oct. 25. She said she has received only one application, but she has “heard of another one out there.” “We’re trying to get the word out,” she said. “We’re looking for people with expertise. People who understand Chicago politics and our transportation rail system.” Hill said her office has followed its normal process for filling an open position.

“Our board members knew,” Hill said. “Our insiders knew to get the word out. We put it in the paper. My guess is there are not a lot of people out there who fit that bill.” Franks said his ideal candidate for the board would be “apolitical” with transportation and business experience. “Our public transportation system deals with so many people on a daily basis,” Franks said. “We don’t need political hacks; we need people with credentials that can contribute.” In August, Hill and current RTA representative Al Jourdan agreed on a plan to keep Jourdan in his expired

term while accepting applications. Upon choosing a successor, Jourdan will step down. State law gives Hill the power to select the county’s representative to the RTA board, but final approval rests with a majority of the 24-member County Board. Those interested in applying for the position can go to and click on the “County Government” tab. Next, navigate to “Departments A-I” dropdown tab and click on “County Board.” Then click on “County Board Appointments,” and scroll down to the fifth posting titled “Regional Transportation Authority Board.

DAYS & CRAWFORD SCRAP METAL Family Owned Business PAY CASH Buyers of Copper, Brass & Aluminum

CRYSTAL LAKE – A local nurse is teaming with area physicians and McHenry County College to host a screening of a documentary and panel discussion on the state of health care in the country. Carol Louise will bring the documentary “Escape Fire” to McHenry County College at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 9, followed by a panel discussion with a physician from Mercy Hospital, a local chiropractor and nurse practitioner. The documentary and discussion will focus on changing the health care system from one that offers quick fixes in a “disease-care” system rather than prevention in a true health care system. According to the film synopsis, the current political issues about health care access

and cost do not address the root of the problem, which is a major dependence on prescription drugs that react to health issues rather than prevent health issues. Louise said she has seen the perpetual cycle of patients needing drug after drug to address new issues that could arise because of overmedication. “I’ve seen so many people misdiagnosed,” Louise said. “I’ve seen so many older adults have 10, 12, 15 bottles of pills. Many of them get worse instead of better.” The film follows a soldier going to Walter Reed Hospital and a woman who has been misdiagnosed multiple times heading to the Cleveland Clinic. The event will take place in the Conference Center at the college, 8900 Route 14. A trailer of the film can be found at

With my name, you would think that this would be my favorite time of year. It’s not that I don’t like fall; I just never look forward to it but always realize I like it once it gets here. So join me and let’s embrace these quintessential Fall Things. for complete schedule


Autumn and bring you the most complete listing of events for you and your family each week! Please email Autumn at asiegmeier@shawmedia for the Planit calendar or questions.

Join Nurturing Necessities for Nurture: Body, Mind and Spirit and over 25 holistic vendors including readers, massages, energy workers, jewelry, herbs, oils and more. Raffle prizes will be given away throughout the day. Event is free but donations are appreciated. From noon to 6 p.m.

Please note; we try to be as accurate as possible with our events but things are subject to change without notice. Check the listing and confirm before heading to an event.

Darker Earlier: I don’t mind the shorter days. It must be good childhood memories of our house being cozy with the lights on by 4 in the afternoon. I even kind of like my running errands, after work and Pilates, in the dark. Apple Cider Donuts: I refrain from baked goods for about 355 days a year. but I cannot resist a fresh apple cider donut. Heck, I can’t resist a two day-old one of these. Get yourself a few this weekend and truly taste fall. The Crock Pot Reappears: If I was a good Pinterest-er, this appliance would be on my counter all of the time but Son and I tend to get the crock pot going when the temperatures dip. Even though weather this weekend will be warm during the days, the nights will be cool enough for some White Chicken Chili. New Movie Season: Out with the summer action blockbusters and in with the serious Oscar contenders. We barely saw any movies this summer and the Golfer in my Life and I are ready for what is coming out in the next few months. Let’s start with “Rush” and “Gravity.” Fall Clothes: I love to shop and I love to organize so the switching of fashions seasonally is a highlight for me. Since we live in an old house with closets roughly the size of your average refrigerator, I have to pack away my

off-season wardrobe. Unpacking them is like saying hello to some favorite friends. And of course, since I have lots of shopping time on the weekends until the golf season ends, I must pick up a few new ones too. October Baseball: Even though neither Chicago team is in the playoffs and my favorite player, Mariano Rivera, is retiring, I will still be watching post-season baseball. I feel like this sport gets pushed aside when football starts but there is nothing like the drama of a good World Series. NBA Season Starts: This sport brings all of my family together. Daughter is anxiously awaiting the return of Derek Rose, Son is bracing himself for the Clippers, the Golfer will compare his weekday work pick-up games to those of the pros, and I am ready for some late weekday night West Coast games. My Name is Everywhere: There are “Autumn Fests” here and “Celebrations of Autumn” there. One day my co-worker Zach asked “what really would an Autumn Fest be?” Well, he and I decided it would include: a Pinterest kiosk, Pilates workshops, Sudoku contests, all of the “Project Runway” seasons, “I ♥ Sporcle” tshirts and the chance to have your photo taken with the best four-legged beast in the world. If that doesn’t say “Autumn Fun,” I don’t know what does! Follow up to last week’s column: One thing Tina Fey and I don’t have in common is our wardrobe malfunctions. She has them in front of millions and fortunately, I don’t! Enjoy this beautiful weekend! Autumn

“Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2” STARRING: Voices of Bill Hader, Anna Faris, Will Forte, Neil Patrick Harris PLOT: Flint Lockwood now works at The Live Corp Company for his idol, Chester V. But he’s forced to leave his post when he learns his most infamous machine is still operational and is churning out menacing food-animal hybrids. RATED: PG for mild rude humor TIME: 1 hour, 35 minutes VERDICT: It might not possess the robust charm of its 2009 predecessor, but “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2” nevertheless gets an amusing boost from a genetically modified, marauding menagerie of Tacodiles, Watermelophants, Sasquashes and assorted other “Foodimals” that have overtaken the once-tranquil island of Swallow Falls. While the inventive mashups make the rest of the storytelling feel like an undercooked side dish by comparison, their presence alone should ensure the 3-D animated sequel easily whets the appetite of the broad audience that made the first installment a $243 million worldwide box-office treat. Provided they’ve allowed a sufficient distance from the self-cannibalizing summer 2013 animation glut, Sony Pictures, handing the release the slot occupied this time last year by “Hotel Transylvania,” should anticipate similarly sunny results. Where the first movie took a loose cue from the book of the same name by Judi and Ron Barrett, the sequel goes off in its own direction rather than taking a page out of their print follow-up, “Pickles to Pittsburgh.” Swapping the disaster-flick motif of the original for a monster-movie overlay, they lend the proceedings a zippy visual energy and get fine support from their energetic voice cast. But they can’t gloss over the uninspired plotting, convoluted exposition (especially in the clunky setup that gets the characters off the island) and truly pun-ishing dialogue credited to Erica Rivinoja (“South Park”) and John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein (“Horrible Bosses”). And although the 3D barely computes, few will likely notice – what with all those flocking Flamangos and wide-eyed strawberries providing ample distraction. –

The Holywood Reporter

“Don Jon” STARRING: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore, Tony Danza PLOT: A New Jersey guy dedicated to his family, friends and church develops unrealistic expectations from watching porn and works to ind happiness and intimacy with his potential true love. RATED: R for strong graphic sexual material


and dialogue throughout, nudity, language and some drug use TIME: 1 hour, 30 minutes VERDICT: Jon Martello’s relentless libido has a comic math to it. At the club, Jon (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and his pals rate girls on a scale of one to “a dime.” He keeps a weekly tally of both his conquests and his far more numerous – and to him more rewarding – porn-aided masturbations. And being a good Catholic boy, every Sunday, he counts up his sins and receives back from the priest his neat sum of Our Fathers and Hail Marys. (He recites them while working out.) His life is a circle of replenishing lust, a ritual of superficial pleasure that adds up to robotic emptiness. Some like it hot; Jon (“Don,” as in Don Juan, to his friends) needs it hot. Even his most attractive catches leave him unsatisfied, and he sneaks out of bed to his laptop. Real sex doesn’t measure up to the fantasy of online pornography that lets him “lose himself.” But “Don Jon,” the writing-directing debut of Gordon-Levitt, equals something quite substantial: a speedy little comedy about not just sex addiction but modern lives wasted on shallow gratification. There are other contemporary cravings, too: A big-screen TV dominates family meals at his parents’ house (Tony Danza and Glenne Headly shouting back-and-forth like a sitcom couple), where Jon’s younger sister (Brie Larson) pecks away at her smartphone. Jon’s compulsive routine (echoing the “gym-tan-laundry” of “the Situation” from “The Jersey Shore,” a clear inspiration) is broken when he meets Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson, in full sex bomb). She requires the “long game” of dating and family-meeting before sleeping with Jon, but he judges her worth it. Their first date is a sparring match of Jersey accents, a dueling “Saturday Night Live” sketch. When their relationship hits a road block (it involves both his porn addiction and, miraculously, Swiffer sweepers), Jon finds himself drawn to an older, less glamorous woman from his night class (Julianne Moore), who epitomizes everything Barbara isn’t: unaffectedness over thick makeup; humor over self-seriousness; love over lust. Until Moore fully enters the film, “Don Jon” is little more than a cartoon, albeit an entertaining one, constantly flashing the pornographic images that roil Jon’s mind. Though the point is that Jon is a living cliché, it means the journey here is merely the awakening of a mannequin. (No offense intended to 1987’s “Mannequin.”) But as an argument for life, itself, and all its pains and passions, you could hardly do better than Moore. For an actress of great naturalism, it’s one of her most suited roles. “Don Jon” is a lark, but an enjoyable one with a full-hearted finale, and it further reveals the considerable talents of Gordon-Levitt. – The Associated


“Rush” STARRING: Daniel Brühl, Chris Hemsworth, Olivia Wilde PLOT: A re-creation of the merciless 1970s rivalry between Formula One rivals James Hunt and Niki Lauda. RATED: R for sexual content, nudity, profanity, some disturbing images and brief drug use TIME: 2 hours, 3 minutes VERDICT: The last time director Ron Howard and screenwriter Peter Morgan worked together, it was on “Frost/Nixon,” a crafty and illuminating cat-and-mouse psychological thriller that pitted interviewer David Frost against still-roaring lion in winter Richard Nixon. With “Rush,” the filmmakers are in harness again, and again their fascination lies with two strong-willed men of diametrically opposed temperaments. Ostensibly about the rivalry between Formula One race car drivers James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl), which reached its zenith in the explosively dramatic 1976 season, “Rush” is also an old-fashioned morality tale, an iteration of the Ant and the Grasshopper with fast cars, spectacular smash-ups, fierce competition and the kind of cutthroat, grudgingly respectful one-upsmanship of which so many classic male-bonding myths are made. Beginning in 1976, when Hunt and Lauda played their own cat-and-mouse game through a series of Grand Prix races, “Rush” flashes back six years earlier, when Hunt – a handsome blond playboy – first meets Lauda, a serious-minded Austrian with an unfortunate overbite and zero sense of humor. Both sons of prosperous bourgeois families, their similarities end there, with Hunt largely driving on instinct and adrenaline and Lauda taking a far more technical, analytical approach. Portrayed as a hot-headed, undisciplined risk-taker on the track and a legendary swordsman in bed, Hunt was like a shaggy 007 of the car-racing world. While Hunt lives it up, dining on oysters and Champagne at races and capitalizing on the “aphrodisiacal effects of being close to death,” as he puts it at one point, Lauda keeps his head down, his humanity finally peeking through when he takes his future wife (and two awe-struck fans) on a breakneck joyride through the Italian countryside. Morgan’s script can be faulted for telling rather than showing too often, as the men deliver a few too many pat speeches in which they spell out What Our Rivalry Means. But Howard directs “Rush” with speed and jangly, jarring verve, bringing the races themselves to white-knuckled life and allowing the men’s stories to play out with only slightly predictable reversals, upsets and, inevitably, those hard lessons learned. Considering the subject matter, “Rush” delivers the expected visceral jolts; what’s surprising is how endearing it is, even when its two protagonists are behaving like little more than boys with very fast toys. – The

Teen must show her parents she’s mature enough to date Dear Abby: I’m a 14-year-old girl who’s having a disagreement with my parents about dating. There’s this guy, “Connor,” who likes me, and I’m very comfortable with him. His older sister and I are good friends. The trouble is, my parents have strict rules against dating, and I think it’s unfair. I think I’m mature enough to date, and I know right from wrong. My friends say I’m very mature for my age, and they approve of Connor because he’s friendly and has an outgoing personality. I have tried talking to my parents about this, but I always end up in tears. Can you tell me how I can convince them to give this guy a chance? – Grown Up At 14, Prince George, Canada Dear Grown Up: A sure way to show your parents you’re mature enough to date would be to show them you’re a responsible person. Do they know when they ask you a question that they’ll get an honest answer with no evasion? Have you shown them that you respect their curfews? Do you do the chores that are expected of you without having to be reminded? Is the same true about your homework? If the answer to these

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips questions is yes, then do they KNOW Connor? Do they know his parents? If they do, they might feel more comfortable about your seeing him, IF it’s in a group rather than one-on-one. Dear Abby: I’m 13 years old, and I recently enrolled in a new school. I have met two boys, “Jake” and “Cory,” and I have been crushing on both of them. I really like Jake for everything, but I’m not sure he likes me back. I like Cory for his looks and popularity, and I’m positive he likes me because he said so. Should I ask Jake to go with me first, and if he says no, rebound to Cory? –

Confused In Raymond, Miss. Dear Confused: The school year has just started and it’s a little early to be asking someone to “go” with you. If you take your time – say, wait a month – Jake may find the courage to tell you he likes you, too. If he doesn’t, tell Cory you’re interested in him and see if he still feels the same way about you. (The odds are 50/50.) And who knows? In another month,

there might be a third guy. Dear Abby: My brother thinks I eat too slow, and I think he eats too fast. He claims it’s rude to eat slow and make others wait for you. I say eating slowly is healthy, and it’s better than wolfing down your food to keep up with the people you’re with. Who’s right? – At My Own

Pace In Eddington, Maine Dear At Your Own Pace: You’re both right. If you eat so slowly that the rest of the people at your table must wait for you to finish, ask them to proceed with their dessert and coffee so they won’t have to sit there and watch you masticate. And wolfing down one’s food causes some people to overeat, which is why weight-loss specialists advise against it. Dear Abby: What do new fathers hand out today instead of cigars? – Nonsmoker In

Savannah Dear Nonsmoker: Because so much more is now understood about the dangers of tobacco, many new fathers today hand out small gift bags of candy instead – blue for a baby boy or pink for a daughter.

Blood pressure can explain leg pain Dear Dr. K: I had some pain in my leg while exercising, and now my doctor wants to do an ankle-brachial index test. How is it done? And what will it tell him? Dear Reader: Atherosclerosis stiffens and clogs our arteries. It attacks the coronary arteries that provide blood to the heart muscle and causes heart attacks. It also attacks the arteries of the brain, causing strokes. Atherosclerosis also often affects the peripheral arteries of the legs. When we exercise our leg muscles, they can reach the point where we’re asking them to work harder than their blood supply allows. When that happens, they scream in pain. The leg pain caused by atherosclerosis is usually felt in the calf, though sometimes it is felt in the thigh. Typically, the pain starts only after a person has been exercising his or her legs for a while. That’s when the muscles suddenly are being asked to work harder than they can, because of their reduced blood supply. When a person stops exercising, pain caused by atherosclerosis typically goes away over the next min-

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff ute or two. Of course, many different conditions can cause leg pain when we exercise. In particular, injuries to leg muscles or to the hip, knee, ankle or foot can cause exercise pain. Just from your symptoms alone, it can be hard to be sure what is causing leg pain when you exercise. A key test for problems in peripheral arteries is the ankle-brachial index, or ABI. An ABI compares blood pressure readings from the ankle and the brachial artery, which is the major blood vessel in the upper arm. The test is done using a blood pressure cuff and an ultrasound probe. Normally, blood pressure is similar whether it is measured in the legs or in the arms. If blood pressure is lower in the legs, it usually means that fatty buildup inside the leg arteries is interfering with circulation. The doctor will calculate your ABI by taking the high-

est pressure recorded at your ankle and dividing it by the highest pressure recorded at your arm. The normal range is between 0.90 and 1.30. A result under 0.90 means that blood is having a hard time getting to the legs and feet. The lower the number, the higher the chances of leg pain while exercising or of limbthreatening low blood flow. On the other end, an ABI above 1.30 is usually a sign of stiff, calcium-encrusted arteries. These often occur in people with diabetes or chronic kidney disease. The ABI also offers information about your general cardiovascular health. An ABI result under 0.90, for example, also indicates an increased risk of heart attack, stroke or dying of heart disease. That’s because people with severe atherosclerosis of the arteries of the leg usually also have atherosclerosis of the arteries of the heart and brain. I hope your test goes well and that the result is reassuring.

Williams bests Fox on TV



Saturday, September 28, 2013 • Section B • Page 10

Robin Williams has early bragging rights over Michael J. Fox in the competition between two sitcom veterans returning to network TV – with an asterisk. The Nielsen company said Friday Williams’ new CBS comedy, “The Crazy Ones,” debuted before 15.6 million people Thursday. It competed directly at 8 p.m. with “The Michael J. Fox Show” on NBC, which was seen by 7.2 million people. Williams, who plays an advertising executive working in a firm with his daughter, had a huge advantage. His new sitcom directly followed a new episode of television’s most popular comedy, “The Big Bang Theory,” which was seen by 19.5 million people in the second of a two-part season premiere.


Are Kimmel, Kanye at war? Jimmy Kimmel and Kanye West either are engaged in a bitter feud or a wild parody of one. A skit poking fun at West on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Tuesday provoked an irate call from the rapper about an hour and half before Thursday’s show, Kimmel said in his monologue. “He is very angry because of a bit we aired this week,” Kimmel said, in which a child re-enacted an interview West gave to Britain’s BBC. It was “pretty innocuous,” the late-night host said. But West ordered him to make a public apology and said Kimmel’s life would be “much better” if he did so, Kimmel said, adding West also called himself the most powerful voice in media. Then came more than a half-dozen tweets posted on West’s official Twitter site. One called Kimmel out of line for spoofing what West called “the first piece of honest media in years,” and another referred to photographers trying to get shots of West’s baby daughter with Kim Kardashian. “Jimmy Kimmel, I don’t take it as a joke. ... You don’t have scum bags hopping over fences trying to take pictures of your daughter,” West tweeted. Other tweets used profanity and coarse language, while one mocked Kimmel by saying his former girlfriend Sarah Silverman is funnier than him. “Finally, I’m in a rap feud. I always wanted to be in a rap feud,” a smiling Kimmel said. Representatives for Kimmel in Los Angeles and West in New York didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment made early Friday, outside of business hours.

Kaley Cuoco engaged

Currington pleads in threat case

“The Big Bang Theory” actress Kaley Cuoco is off the market. After a quick courtship, Cuoco is engaged to tennis pro Ryan Sweeting, her rep confirms. The 27-year-old actress and 26-year-old Sweeting began dating about three months ago. The engagement comes a few days after Cuoco took Sweeting as her date to the Emmy Awards. At a pre-Emmy event, Cuoco called Sweeting the “greatest date ever” on a photo posted to her official Twitter and Instagram accounts. News of the proposal was first reported by Us Weekly. It will be the first marriage for both. “The Big Bang Theory” returns for its seventh season on Thursday.

Country singer Billy Currington has pleaded no contest months after he was charged with threatening a 70-yearold tour boat captain who cruised past the dock of his waterfront home in coastal Georgia. Currington pleaded no contest Friday to a charge of abuse of an elderly person and was sentenced to five years of probation and a $1,000 fine. He was ordered to undergo anger-management counseling and have no contact with the boat caption. In exchange, prosecutors agreed to drop a charge of making terroristic threats. Tour boat captain Charles Harvey Ferrelle and two passengers told police an irate Currington April 15 chased them in his own boat and threatened them.

Nelson back on festival lineup An improving Willie Nelson will make his festival date today in Nashville, Tenn., after all, and he’s bringing a friend. A news release from festival organizers said Nelson has recuperated enough from a shoulder injury that he’s able to keep his evening slot at the Zac Brown Band’s Southern Ground Music & Food Festival. Warren Haynes will sit in with Nelson and his band for a handful of songs as well. Festival organizers also announced Kenny Rogers was to join Brown and his band during its star-packed Friday headlining set that also was to include Kenny Chesney and Jason Mraz. Nelson pulled out of the festival and postponed three other dates earlier this week after doctor’s advised him to rest his shoulder for a week. The missed dates in Michigan, Indiana and Illinois are being rescheduled.

Take it easy on Forte

R-B golfer Hahn has future set as Badger


Trestman shouldn’t overuse RB

One of the best moves of Jordan Hahn’s golf career came three years ago when he connected with his swing coach, Kiel Alderink. Under Alderink’s tutelage, Hahn’s game has flourished. The RichmondBurton junior is tearing it up this season, with a pair of record rounds, and he knows he will be playing at Wisconsin in two more years. “This summer, Jordan Hahn I played very well Richmondand the high school Burton junior season’s going well,” golfer already Hahn said. “I hope I can continue to play has committed to play at well in the state series and at state.” Wisconsin. Hahn committed to Wisconsin in the spring. Alderink teaches at Todd Sones Impact Golf in Vernon Hills and knows Badgers coach Michael Burcin, which helped in the recruitment. Hahn, who is 6-foot-6, said a factor in Wisconsin’s favor was he would be close enough to Alderink to continue working with him. Hahn started the season with a record 3-under-par 69 at the Sandwich Invitational at Edgebrook Golf Course. On Monday, he shot 6-under 29 in a dual match to set the course record at Beaver Creek Golf Course in Capron. Over the summer, Hahn competed in American Junior Golf Association and Mid-American Junior Golf Tour events, where he saw tough competition. “It’s always been my dream to play D-I golf,” Hahn said. “I’ve always felt that drive and passion to play at the highest level I can.”

See where I’m going with this one? #SaveForte At 3-0, the new-look Bears could be going places this season. But they’re probably not going anywhere if they endure long-term injuries to their top playmakers on offense, which is a short list that includes Jay Cutler, Matt Forte and Brandon Marshall. Trestman’s consistent emphasis on protecting Cutler from hits has made perfect sense. Yet the Bears have leaned hard – really hard – on Forte, who has notched 73 touches (55 carries, 18 receptions) through the first three weeks of the season. That’s an average of 24.3 touches a game, which would mark a career high for Forte. His only previous two seasons with 20-plus touches were as a rookie in 2008 (which he followed with a sophomore slump in 2009 in which he never was fully healthy) and as Mike Martz’s favorite toy in 2011 (which ended with a sprained knee ligament in Week 13).

South grad Simmons recognized for community service ON CAMPUS Barry Bottino Saturdays in the fall for Tyler Simmons include being on the football field playing defensive end for Aurora University, then taking in more football on TV. “After our games, I watch a lot of college football and I wonder what it would be like to play in front of a huge crowd,” said Simmons, a senior Tyler defensive lineman Simmons for the NCAA Division III Spartans who graduated from Crystal Lake South. Thanks to his time spent in the community, Simmons will get a taste of big-time football in January. Simmons earned an elite honor last week when he was named one of 22 college football players from across the country to the 2013 Allstate Good Works Team, a col-

Aurora University defensive lineman Tyler Simmons (left), a Crystal Lake South graduate, was honored for his community service as one of 22 players from across the country named to the Allstate Good Works Team. lection of athletes recognized for contributing to their communities. Simmons said the 22 players will travel to New Orleans in January for the Sugar Bowl – sponsored by Allstate – to conduct a youth football clinic and be honored on

the field at halftime. “Most of the time, football players are in the media for something negative,” Simmons said. “It’s nice to be recognized for doing the right things. It’s a huge honor.” Simmons is one of 11 members

on a team made up of players from Football Championship Subdivision, D-II, D-III and NAIA teams. Another 11-member team is made up of Football Bowl Subdivision players. Team members were selected by a committee comprised of former Good Works honorees, media members, current and former members of the American Football Coaches Association and an Allstate executive. Online voting on ESPN’s website will determine a captain from among the 22 Good Works honorees. Fans can vote by visiting and searching “Good Works.” During his career, Simmons has helped organize a 5K run/walk to raise money and awareness for multiple sclerosis and coached in a youth flag football program. He also has volunteered with the National Alliance on Mental Illness, an organization that provides education, homes and jobs for mentally challenged adults and teens. “He’s a fine, outstanding defensive lineman, but he’s a better person,” Aurora coach Mark Walsh said. “He’s always first in line to

volunteer for community activities. We’re thrilled for him and for the recognition our football program will get. I can’t think of a more deserving person.” Simmons, an honorable mention All-Northern Athletics Conference player last season, said he doesn’t preach to his younger teammates to get involved in community projects. Instead, he offers a simple message. “I like to just lead by example,” he said. “I tell [teammates] to do things their parents will be proud of.” Simmons was surprised by Walsh and an athletic department employee with news of the award last week during a practice. Since then, he has received congratulatory messages from numerous supporters. “There’s a lot of excitement around campus about it,” Simmons said. “I’ve heard from our athletic director, and several former teachers have emailed me. I’ve already had [teammates] tell me that they’re going to win it next year.”

Supremacy in Big Ten Leaders Division on line By RUSTY MILLER The Associated Press COLUMBUS, Ohio – There was a time when Ohio State could use the week of the Wisconsin game to prepare for other, bigger showdowns. From 1948 to 1980, the Buckeyes were 32-1 against the Badgers. Most games were over before fans found their seats. “I was here a long time ago, and it was not a rivalry,” said Ohio State coach Urban Meyer, a graduate assistant with the Buckeyes in the 1980s. “But you have to give credit to Wisconsin. I think it all started with Coach (Barry) Alvarez, and then the following coaches have done a great job. So it’s one of, if not the best program in the Big Ten right now.” Dave McClain, Alvarez and Bret

Bielema brought respect and stability to Wisconsin – and gave a shot of balance to the Wisconsin-Ohio State series. From 1981-87, the Badgers won six times in seven meetings – after winning just seven times in the previous 68 years. Each side has been trading welts and bruises in equal measure in what has become one of the most anticipated games on their schedules. Once again, a lot is riding on Saturday night’s meeting between the fourth-ranked Buckeyes and No. 23 Badgers. Chief among them is superiority in the Big Ten’s Leaders Division. Here are five things to watch: Not bowing to the king: Wisconsin has won the last three Big Ten championship games. No wonder Meyer called it the “king” of the conference.

That rankles his own players, who went 12-0 last year including a dramatic overtime win over the Badgers, but were prevented from playing in the title game because of NCAA sanctions. “When somebody takes what’s yours, you’re obviously not going to be happy about it,” cornerback Bradley Roby said of Wisconsin winning the championship in 2012. “The next time you see them it’s going to be a fight. That’s basically what it is, man. This game is going to be a fight.” Rock vs. hard place: Wisconsin is third in the nation in rushing at 350 yards a game, Ohio State is sixth at 311. If either dominates like it has, it’s going to be a long night for the other defense. “Against teams like this you aren’t going to always run pretty,” Wisconsin offensive lineman Ryan Groy said.

“When our backs are running physical and running hard, they are going to break some tackles. That’s when most of it counts, after first contact. Teams like this that have great defenses and tackle well, you break a couple tackles and something good is going to happen.” Air raid: If the ground battle is fought on relatively even terms, the ability to pass will be paramount. Wisconsin has thrown 99 passes all season; Ohio State threw 34 times in the first half of its last game. The Badgers have totaled six TD passes; the Buckeyes’ backup quarterback Kenny Guiton, had that many in the first two quarters last week. Balancing that is the fact that Wisconsin hasn’t given up a scoring pass yet this year. The Buckeyes vow that stat won’t be the same on Sunday.

Night moves: The game will be on national TV during prime time. Both teams are used to playing after dark. “I love night games,” Roby said. “Everybody’s watching the best games. The place is electrified. Everybody’s there, people have all day to get drunk and stuff like that, so it’s going to be crazy.” The coaches: Gary Andersen, in his first year with the Badgers, was an assistant under Meyer for a year at Utah. They remain best friends. But Andersen pooh-poohs the importance of that. “My take is that it doesn’t have anything to do with it,” he said. “Obviously, Urban’s a good friend. I consider him a good friend. Who knows, maybe he doesn’t consider me a good friend.” Then he laughed.



Familiar foes in Top 25 showdown

Illini face anemic offense

By LaMOND POPE Chicago Sun-Times SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Oklahoma’s football team had a bye last week, so coach Bob Stoops spent a portion of his time watching the Notre Dame-Michigan State game. He thought this year’s Irish team resembled the one that went to Norman, Okla., and beat the Sooners, 30-13, last season. “They are a very similar team, as far as the way they like to play on offense and defense. Their schemes are all the same,” Stoops said. “They’ve got good athletes and are well-disciplined in everything that they do. I see a very similar [team], watching them, as they were a year ago.” The traditional powers meet again today at Notre Dame Stadium. If No. 22 Notre Dame (3-1) wants a similar result as last year, the team will have to find a way to slow down the No. 14 Sooners’ balanced offense. Oklahoma (3-0) averages 271.7 rushing yards and 218.7 passing yards. Running backs Brennan Clay and Damien Williams average 87.3 and 80.5 rushing yards, respectively. Clay has a team-leading 262 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns. According to reports, Williams (161 rushing yards) served a one-game suspension for an undisclosed violation of team rules against Tulsa. He’s expected to play today. Notre Dame is 28th in rushing defense (114.3 yards a game). In last year’s game, Oklahoma had just 15 rushing yards on 24 carries. The Sooners found success through the air against Tulsa. Quarterback Blake Bell, also a threat with his legs, had 413 passing yards and four touchdowns in the first start of his career. Receiver Sterling Shepard caught eight passes for 123 yards. “We know our opponent. We know their strengths, and we know the things that we have to improve on,” Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said. “I think our guys are very aware of our weaknesses and what we have to improve on to win this football game. But I will say this, they’re confident. “They know that they can beat Oklahoma, but they’re going to have to play mistake-free. We’re going to have to be in great position. We’re going to have to be fundamentally-sound defensively and all the basic tenets that go with playing championship football will have to be on display. But I’m very confident in our football team, that they understand what is necessary and what will have to happen for us to win.”

Safety Jimmie Ward (15) celebrates with teammate Sean Evans after Ward’s interception during the fourth quarter against Iowa on Aug. 31 in Iowa City. The Huskies won, 30-27.


Huskies set sights on 2nd ‘boneyard victory’ By STEVE NITZ DeKALB – Sean Evans was on the Ross-Ade Stadium sideline in 2009, witnessing firsthand one of the gutsiest calls anyone in attendance will see. Evans, then a true freshman cornerback who would end up taking a redshirt year, watched as former coach Jerry Kill called a fake punt from NIU’s own 16-yard line. It paid off, as running back Justin Anderson took a direct snap and ran 11 yards for a first down. The call helped the Huskies run out the clock and hang on for a 2821 win over Purdue. “We had belief. That’s one thing that we pride ourselves on. We believe in the system, we believe in the journey, and never do we flinch. That was a prime example then,” Evans said. “Nobody in the stadium knew what was going on, but we did. We had faith and when it worked, that just added to the spark. That just kept us going and really got things rolling. That was probably one of the most exciting moments of my career here.” Evans was one of four current

“I don’t believe in [records] with these guys. They could easily be 3-1 or even 4-0.” Rod Carey Northern Illinois football coach, on Purdue

Huskies to travel to West Lafayette four years ago, with the others being quarterback Jordan Lynch, offensive tackle Matt Krempel and defensive tackle Anthony Wells. It was the first “boneyard victory” for the group. The team puts a large dog bone up in the locker room after each win over a BCS school. NIU would add wins over BCS schools in 2010 (Minnesota) and 2012 (Kansas). This season started with another one of those boneyard victories, with the Huskies getting a win at Iowa in Week 1. NIU is looking to become the first Mid-American Conference team to beat two Big Ten teams in the same regular season. Bowling Green defeated Purdue in the 2003 regular season before defeating North-

western in the Motor City Bowl. “It would be big. That’s one of our goals this year, to have boneyard victories,” Evans said. “We made an effort this year to make it plural, since we have two Big Ten opponents on our schedule.” The Huskies are also the first MAC team to be favored against a Big Ten team on the road since 2003, when Miami and Ben Roethlisberger were a three-point favorite at Northwestern. The Huskies are 3.5-point favorites Saturday. The Boilermakers have struggled so far this year, particularly on offense. Purdue averages only 15.2 points and 246 yards a game. Boilermakers offensive coordinator John Shoop was the Chicago Bears’ much-maligned coordinator from 2001-03. Purdue has been in every one of its games at halftime, and NIU coach Rod Carey thinks the Boilermakers are better than their 1-3 record shows. Purdue has played two Top 25 teams and lost to No. 22 Notre Dame by seven points “I don’t believe in [records] with these guys. They could easily be 3-1 or even 4-0,” Carey said. “I mean, they’re right there.”

least-productive offense (149.3 yards a game) in the country, will set a season high in points. Of course, all it’ll take is 15 of them to do that – or fewer than half the 34 Southern Illinois scored on the Illini. 2. Illini true freshman quarterback Aaron Bailey will throw his first pass of the season. Offensive coordinator Bill Cubit has an expanded package of plays this week for Bailey, who thus far has only run the ball. Bailey might also get a chance to do something less conventional (catch the ball?) via a trick play. “He’s such a great kid,” Cubit said. “Whatever I give him [to run], it’s always, ‘Thanks, Coach, I appreciate you putting a little more in there.’ ” 3. An Illini cornerback will intercept a pass for the first time this season. These guys have gotten smoked through three games, for the most part. One of them – V’Angelo Bentley, Eaton Spence, Darius Mosely, Jaylen Dunlap – will make a big play. Coach Tim Beckman doesn’t have anyone on his staff dedicated to working with the cornerbacks, by the way. Beckman does that himself. He loves true freshmen Mosely and Dunlap, but it might do more for the confidence of the defense if Bentley or Spence has a moment in the sun. 4. For a change, there’ll be a handful of chunk plays between the tackles for Illinois running backs Josh Ferguson and Donnovon Young. Miami’s defensive front is subpar. The same could be said about the Illini’s run-blocking to date, of course, but the O-line’s sheer size will be a factor in this matchup. 5. Quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase will have a bounce-back performance. The senior completed only 36 percent of his throws in the loss to Washington last time out. Look for him to be back at around 70 percent against a defense that doesn’t rush the passer well. • Steve Greenberg is a sports reporter for the Chicago Sun-Times who can be reached at sgreenberg@

Nobilio reaches 1,500 digs at UW-Whitewater • ON CAMPUS Continued from page C1 Digging dandy: During September, Johnsburg grad Kelsey Nobilio became only the eighth player in D-III Wisconsin-Whitewater women’s volleyball history to surpass 1,500 career digs. Nobilio, a junior libero for the Warhawks (13-4), ranks fifth with 1,592 digs. She ranks third in the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference this season with 4.47 digs a set. Whitewater ranks 17th this week in the American Volleyball Coaches Association D-III poll. The Warhawks’ 3-2 loss

Wednesday to UW-Stevens Point ended an 11-match winning streak. Nobilio, who had 21 digs in the defeat, was named Whitewater’s Player of the Week on Sept. 16.

From MCC to Eureka: Former McHenry County College baseball coach Kim “Hoss” Johnson took over a new program Monday. Johnson, who has won 515 games over 20 seasons as a collegiate head coach, was selected to lead the D-III Eureka College baseball program. Johnson had two stints as MCC’s head coach, from 1993 through 1996 and from 2002 through 2011. He served as an assistant coach last

season at D-III Blackburn College in Carlinville. Blackburn and Eureka are members of the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. Johnson also spent three seasons as the head coach at D-I Western Illinois. Offensive star: Huntley grad Ashley Smith, a sophomore outside hitter at D-I Maryland Eastern Shore, is leading the volleyball team with 73 kills this season. Smith, a transfer from Kentucky Wesleyan, is averaging 1.92 kills a set for the Hawks (1-11).

Goalkeeper garners honor: Crystal Lake Central grad Vickey Benhart was named the St. Louis Intercollegiate

Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week in women’s soccer Monday. Benhart, a sophomore goalkeeper at D-III Eureka, guided the Red Devils to a 2-1 overtime victory last week against Rockford College.

Bears-Lions ‘rivalry’ has been lopsided affair “It’s easy to have a dislike for them. It’s not hard at all.” That was wide receiver Calvin Johnson stating his feelings about the Bears on the Thursday, before the first of their two annual meetings this Sunday. Other Lions players and even some of the Detroit media have been stirring the pot all week, trying to paint the Lions and Bears as one of the hot rivalries in the league. Suh also took some shots at the Bears and banged his chest about how he’ll “digest” anyone the Bears throw in front of him. The bottom line is, it’s pretty hard to call any matchup a hot rivalry when one club has beat the other nine out of 10 times over the past five seasons, as the Bears have the Lions. It’s not hard to see why Johnson doesn’t like the Bears. Johnson has just two 100-yard games in 11 career matchups against the Bears and, during his record-breaking 2012 season, he managed just 34 and 72 yards receiving in two games against the Bears. If there is a rivalry, it’s between

Trestman tries to use Bush more • MUSICK Continued from page C1 Maybe you remember that injury to Forte, which accelerated the Bears’ late-season skid. Maybe you flashed back to that painful memory when Forte limped off the field Sunday in Pittsburgh and needed to have his left ankle heavily taped before returning. Give Trestman credit for recognizing the need to pump the brakes on Forte and to find more playing time for Michael Bush, a veteran running back who has proved in six NFL seasons that he can be much more than a goal-line brute. So far, Bush has averaged 5.3 touches a game, almost all of which has come in short yardage. “We’ve got to have Matt for the long haul, so we’re going to continually try to work Michael in,” Trestman said this week at Halas Hall. “He’s practicing well. We look at him as a starter in his own right. We’ve got to continue to work at that. “It’s just hard to take Matt off the field, as I’m sure everybody can understand.” Yes, it’s understandable. But Trestman and the Bears will not be remembered for what they do in September. Rather, how we judge them will depend on what happens – or doesn’t happen – when playoff time arrives in the first few weeks of 2014. Bush said Wednesday his legs felt fresh and he would be ready whenever called upon. “I’m good,” Bush said. “But whatever we game plan, that’s what I look forward to.” OK, OK. Say the right things, be a good teammate, I get it. But Bush could envision a bigger role for himself in the offense, yeah? “Everybody wants a bigger role, you know?” Bush said. “But Matt is doing a great job right now, so just let him keep rolling.” As long as he’s not rolling his ankle. Predictably, Forte has no problem with having the ball in his hands as much as possible. “I’ve got to be in shape to be in this offense,” Forte said after a recent practice. “If you want to run the ball and be involved in the passing game, you’ve got to be in shape. ... “It doesn’t really matter if I’ve got like 30 touches a game or 20-something, I don’t really see myself getting worn down.” But it can happen. Besides, this season might not be limited to 16 games. It could be 17. It could be 18. It could be … Bush politely cut me off. He knew where I was going. “Playoffs, yeah,” he said with a smile. “But it’s too soon. We’ve got to stay on course.” And not drive too hard, too fast, for too many miles. • Northwest Herald sports

BEARS INSIDER Hub Arkush Megatron and Charles “Peanut” Tillman, the author of those lockdown performances, not the Lions and the Bears. As far as acknowledging a real rivalry, Bears coach Marc Trestman had some very interesting comments Friday. “Every game has an equal amount of importance, and whoever you’re playing, it would be disrespectful to 30 other teams if we said that this game was more important than the next.” As long as Trestman is winning, he can say pretty much anything he wants and Bears fans will scream hallelujah. The quote is indicative of how little sentiment there is for a Bears vs. Lions rivalry these days that no one in the media called the coach on that one with the obvious follow-up. So Bears and Packers isn’t a rivalry either? I suspect, in uttering

his coach-speak, Trestman may have stepped in something for the first time with that one, and it will be fun to see how he tries to talk his way out of it when that subject does come up. If he can get away with raining all over Bears and Packers, the heck with football, let’s put him in charge of fixing Washington, D.C., and we’ll all be better off. But back to the subject at hand. The folks in Detroit, players, media and fans alike badly want to make the Bears a heated rival because it makes them legit. Unfortunately, right now the best they have to offer is the best receiver in the game, who isn’t great when he plays the Bears. And the dirtiest player in the league can’t even get the Bears to acknowledge him when he talks smack. The Lions need to figure out that, to make the Bears a real rival, they have to beat them occasionally.

Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffery hauls in a 55-yard pass reception against the Lions on Dec. 30 at Ford Field in Detroit. The Bears won, 26-24, and have defeated the Lions nine of the past 10 meetings entering Sunday’s game in Detroit.

Johnson’s comment doesn’t faze Trestman By KEVIN FISHBAIN LAKE FOREST – It would be an overstatement to call the lead-up to Sunday’s Bears vs. Lions game a “war of words,” but the Lions could have given the Bears some fodder to respond to. Marc Trestman and his team wouldn’t bite, though. “I don’t tell our players what to say or how to say it. The only thing I ask them to do is to be mindful of the fact that their locker room is just like ours, their players are just like ours and they’re working just as hard, just like their coaches are,” Trestman said after Friday’s practice. “And we’re trying to do everything we can not only to re-

spect them, but to respect the game. So when we say things, we want to make sure it’s respectful of the game.” Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson told the media this week regarding the Bears, per the Lions’ website, “It’s easy to have a dislike for them. It’s not hard at all.” Trestman was asked about Megatron’s words. “I can’t answer the question because I can’t speak for Calvin Johnson. He’s a great player, and I know when the whistle blows, he’s ready to play,” he said. “Everybody has the right to say what they want to say, but I’m indifferent about what is being said.” Since improving on the field and having a feather-ruffling player like

Ndamukong Suh, the Lions have made this series more of a rivalry in some observers’ eyes, but not Trestman’s. “I don’t think there’s such thing as a rivalry in the NFL,” he said. “I think, as soon as you make something a rivalry, you make someone more important than the next. The Detroit Lions aren’t any more important than any other team. We have to play them and we have to compete against them on Sunday, and they deserve our maximum respect.” Questionable again: Bears cornerback Charles Tillman (knee/groin) had limited participation in Friday’s practice and is listed as questionable in the team’s injury report. “He worked today. Looked good.

We’ll see how he feels tomorrow, but I would still have to say he’s questionable,” Trestman said, “but we’re reasonably optimistic that he’ll be playing.” Tillman was questionable last week as well and started against Pittsburgh but couldn’t finish the game because of tightness in his groin. He has not missed a start since 2009. Quick hits: Cornerback Sherrick McManis (quad) missed Friday’s practice and is doubtful for Sunday’s game in Detroit. … The Bears placed defensive tackle Henry Melton on injured reserve Friday and signed DT Landon Cohen. In five seasons, Cohen has appeared in 27 games with five starts for the Lions, Jaguars, Patriots and Cowboys.

8INSIDE CROSS COUNTRY Athlete of the week

Big Saturday ahead for Big Ten football Northwest Herald sports copy editor Kevin Murphy picks his top sporting events to watch on TV this weekend with a spotlight on local graduates:

“It’s been a great experience. I always wanted to get into coaching.”

LOCALLY SPEAKING College football: Miami (Ohio) at Illinois, 11 a.m. Saturday, BTN

Wisconsin student coach and Marian Central graduate

McHenry graduate Jake Howe has started all three game on the defensive line this season for the Illini. The Illini have held opponents to 0-for-3 on fourth down, making Illinois one of 16 teams in FBS yet to allow a fourth-down conversion and one of only eight to stay perfect in three or more attempts. Tim Clary, a Richmond-Burton graduate and sophomore fullback for the Illini, could see time as the Illini take on a Mid-American Conference school. Drew Nystrom, a Prairie Ridge graduate, is in his first season as a graduate assistant coach on offense for the Illini. Nystrom and the Illini coaches will wear patches on their sleeves for the game to raise awareness and funding for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy research, and a family who has been affected by the disease will participate in the coin toss.

College football: Northern Illinois at Purdue, 11 a.m. Saturday, ESPN2 Prairie Ridge graduate and Northern Illinois freshman linebacker Sean Folliard is listed on the Huskies’ roster.

College football: Iowa at Minnesota, 2:30 p.m. Saturday, ABC Iowa senior tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz, a Johnsburg graduate, had only one catch for 11 yards last weekend against Western Michigan. Fiedorowicz, according to a story, is listed as the No. 25 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Marian Central graduate Chris Streveler looks to still be the backup quarterback for the Golden Gophers because of an injury to starting quarterback Philip Nelson. Streveler, a true freshman, is now the No. 2 QB on the depth chart. “On the sideline, [Nelson] and Streveler both had a smile on their face,” Leidner, the new starting quarterback, said in a recent Pioneer Press story. “We were having a good time. Philip would tell me what he saw out there. We have really good chemistry together.”

College football: Wyoming at Texas State, 6 p.m. Saturday, Longhorn Network Marian Central graduate Kurtis Stirneman will be on the sideline for Wyoming.

College football: Wisconsin

Jon Budmayr AP photo

at Ohio State, 7 p.m., Saturday, ABC

Bulls guard Derrick Rose speaks Friday during the team’s media day in Deerfield. Rose missed all of last season after suffering a knee injury during the 2012 playoffs.


Jon Budmayr is just focusing on the next game. Budmayr, a Marian Central graduate, is a student coach for Wisconsin this season. He’s finishing his degree in sociology in December and looking to obtain a graduate assistant spot, either with Wisconsin or another team. “It’s been a great experience,” Budmayr said. “I always wanted to get into coaching.” Budmayr helps getting the scout teams ready, so this week has been spent preparing for Ohio State. Budmayr said he’s learned a lot in a short amount of time, and that each week the goal he wants is for his players to be consistent and he tries to be a “sponge” and learn as much as can from the coaches.

Critics don’t faze Rose Guard eager to begin comeback from lost season the idea that the thought of me going out there and injuring myself again, that’s something I don’t want to put myself into that position. “I just tried to stay far away from [the criticism] and think everything through. Just stay positive.” Easier said now that Rose once again declared himself 100 percent and ready to go through his first practice of the 2013-14 campaign Saturday morning. “You hear a lot of criticism, you hear stuff, my friends bring stuff to me, but there’s nothing you can do about it,” Rose said. “All I can do is continue to work hard and continue to compete as a player.” More importantly, as far as the franchise is concerned the bigger task is now monitoring Rose’s workload both in practice and in the preseason games so he is ready to compete once the regular season tips off in Miami on Oct. 29. “We’ve met about it and talked about it quite a bit as a staff,” general manager Gar Forman said of minutes for Rose. “I think with Derrick it will remain fluid as we go. I think it’s difficult at this point to look ahead and say where his minutes will be two weeks from now, four weeks from now, whatever time frame you put on it. As of today,

there’s no hard limit as far as his minutes. It’s just something that will remain fluid and something we’ll keep a close eye on.” With a lot of that responsibility falling on Thibodeau. The coach is no stranger to being criticized for the workload that he has thrown on his players at times, but admittedly with a bench that he feels is as good as he’s had since taking over, as well as the open dialogue that he and Rose always have shared, Thibodeau didn’t see it as an obstacle. “I don’t want to get into specific numbers because I don’t know what they’ll be and he’s made it clear to me that he doesn’t want big restrictions on what he can do, but as I told him, we’ll have to wait to see,’’ Thibodeau said of the minutes discussion. “But it’ll be a process and whatever he can handle, that’s what he’ll get.’’ Which was fine by Rose. “It’s just playing everything smart,’’ Rose said. “It’s my limitations. I wish I could go out there and play the same minutes [from before the injury], but I’m leaving that up to Thibs.’’

Johnsburg boys soccer team wins; McHenry ties

Woods voted PGA Tour player of the year

Girlfriend of ex-Patriot Hernandez indicted

Johnsburg defeated Northridge Prep, 2-1, and McHenry came away with a scoreless tie against Harlem on Friday at the McHenry boys soccer invitational. Michael Rackow scored a first-half goal for the Skyhawks on an assist from Nick Whiting, and Sam Blankenship added the winner in the second half off a Jeff Fryza pass. Also for Johnsburg, Alex Kern made seven saves in goal. Frank Valle made four saves for McHenry.

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Tiger Woods was voted PGA Tour player of the year by his peers for the 11th time on the strength of his five big wins and return to No. 1 in the world. It was the third time Woods won the Jack Nicklaus Award despite not winning a major. He made up for that with two World Golf Championships and The Players Championship among his five wins. Jordan Spieth was voted rookie of the year.

FALL RIVER, Mass. – The girlfriend of former New England Patriot Aaron Hernandez has been indicted on a perjury charge in connection with the killing of his friend, a Massachusetts prosecutor said Friday. A grand jury indicted Shayanna Jenkins, 24, on a single count in relation to the investigation into the June 17 killing of Odin Lloyd, Bristol County District Attorney Samuel Sutter said. – Staff, wire reports

MUST-SEE TV Pro football: Bears at Detroit, noon Sunday, Fox Can the Bears start off the season 4-0 with a win against their NFC North rivals? They’ll have to slow down Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson. The Lions (2-1) are one of only five teams in the NFC with a winning record. The Bears have lost Henry Melton with a torn ACL, but Detroit’s Reggie Bush sat out the win against Washington with a sprained knee.

SET THE DVR College football: Mississippi at Alabama, 5:30 p.m. Saturday, ESPN Ole Miss is 3-0 for the first time since 1989 and coming off a dominant road victory over Texas on Sept. 14. That means the Rebels have had two weeks to prepare for the No. 1 Crimson Tide (3-0).

Meet the new and improved Tom Thibodeau. Just seconds after finishing up his news conference at the Berto Center on Friday, the Bulls coach promised a new “warm and fuzzy’’ persona. Obviously, it’s going to be a work in progress. Discussing the criticism that point guard Derrick Rose has received after sitting out all of last season to rehab his surgically repaired torn left ACL, “warm and fuzzy’’ was chucked out the window. “The people that have been around Derrick … I think our real fans have an appreciation for him,’’ Thibodeau said at the team’s media day before the start of training camp. “ I think the people that criticized him, they don’t know what ... they’re talking about.’’ As for Rose, he had a much gentler approach to how he’s been handling the criticism over the past year. An almost refreshing approach. “I mean you got to look at it from both sides,” Rose said. “As a fan, and there were fans of how I played, of course I would want my favorite player to be back out there. But at the same time I had to look at it, like I said, be selfish with

Huntley’s Constantino Cardinals beat Cubs, clinch Central to pitch at D-II Drury MLB ROUNDUP


ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Cardinals clinched their first NL Central title in four years, beating the Cubs, 7-0, Friday night behind the strong pitching of Lance Lynn. St. Louis (95-65) has won six of seven and is tied with Atlanta for the best record in the NL. The Cubs have lost 12 of 16 and watched an opponent clinch for the third time within a week. Pirates 4, Reds 1: At Cincinnati, the Pirates are one win away from hosting a playoff game. Marlon Byrd had three hits, and Pedro Alvarez hit a two-run homer, leading Pittsburgh over Cincinnati in a series that will decide which

one hosts the NL wild-card game.

AMERICAN LEAGUE Royals 6, White Sox 1: At Chicago, James Shields struck out 10 and scattered four hits over seven innings for his 100th career win, and Kansas City won to ensure the White Sox of their worst record since 1970. At 62-98 with two games remaining, the Sox will finish with the second-most losses in franchise history, ahead of only the team that went 56106 more than four decades ago. The Sox will finish last in their division for the first time since 1989 (69-92). Indians 12, Twins 6: At Minneapolis, Carlos Santana and Asdrubal Cabrera both had

two doubles and Jason Kipnis was a homer short of the cycle as Cleveland had 17 hits in a victory over Minnesota. With the win and Tampa Bay’s loss at Toronto, the Indians moved into a tie with the Rays for the top wild card spot in the American League, a game ahead of Texas, which beat Los Angeles. Rangers 5, Angels 3: At Arlington, Texas, Alex Rios had a tiebreaking RBI single in the seventh inning, and Texas finally gained some ground in the AL wild-card race with a victory over Los Angeles. Blue Jays 6, Rays 3: At Toronto, R.A. Dickey slowed Tampa Bay’s stretch run, pitching Toronto to a victory that stopped the Rays’ seven-game winning streak.

• PREP ZONE Continued from page C1 Constantino to Drury: Huntley right-handed pitcher Nick Constantino committed to NCAA Division II Drury University in Springfield, Mo. this week. Constantino had looked at some D-III and NAIA schools, but Huntley coach Andy Jakubowski contacted Drury’s staff about Constantino. The Panthers’ staff invited Constantino to a showcase in August and he made his official visit last weekend. “I’m really blessed to have the opportunity to do this,” Constantino said. “I really like

the school and feel like it will be a good fit.” Constantino was 3-0 last season with a 5.33 ERA, but his season was cut short when he contracted mononucleosis and missed a month. He pitched for Team Pro Player over the summer and hopes for bigger things next spring. “I feel like me and Eric Luecht are going to do well and it’s going to be a good year,” Constantino said. • Joe Stevenson is a senior sports writer for the Northwest Herald.

Boys MATT JOHNSON Jacobs, sr. Johnson took second in the Kaneland Invitational last Saturday to lead the Golden Eagles to third place as a team. He finished in 16:02.8. Johnson also took first Tuesday in Fox Valley Conference Valley Division dual meets as Jacobs won its 10th consecutive dual. The Eagles are alone in first in the FVC dual standings at 4-0 with two remaining meets. Girls KITTY ALLEN Marengo, so. Allen took second in the Kaneland Invitational in 19:06 to lead the Indians to sixth place as a team. Allen made a huge impact with Marengo as a freshman when she continued placing higher as the races got bigger late in the year. She finished 16th in the Class 2A State Meet to achieve All-State.

Noteworthy FVC races: The Fox Valley Conference crowns division champions in cross country for the teams with the best dual marks. There is one round left of dual meets and Crystal Lake Central and Woodstock boys are tied at 4-0 in the FVC Fox Division. Jacobs (4-0) has an edge on Cary-Grove and Huntley (both 3-3) in the Valley. In the girls standings, C-G (4-0) had the edge on Jacobs and Crystal Lake South (both 3-1) in the Valley, but the Fox will come down to the dual between Central and Woodstock, both which are 4-0. The last round of dual meets will be Oct. 8. Nice comeback: Two years ago, Huntley’s Kelly Meehleib was one of the area’s top freshman runners, but Meehleib was hardly heard from as a sophomore. She is back and has been the Red Raiders’ No. 2 runner behind Kate Mitchell in most meets. Meehleib battled tendinitis in her right knee last season, then rolled her right ankle when she was about ready to run in the postseason. “I started working out in the summer and ran about 300 miles,” Meehleib said. “I didn’t want to go too hard. This was pretty good. I’m trying to get my confidence back. It’s nice to start placing again.”

This week’s top meet Palatine Invitational 10:20 a.m. Saturday, Deer Grove East Park The local teams competing will be Crystal Lake Central, CaryGrove, McHenry and Prairie Ridge. In the boys meet, it will be the toughest test yet for McHenry junior Jesse Reiser, who has not lost this season. The talent at this meet has people refer to it as a “mini-state meet.” York and Hersey will be two of the top Class 3A boys teams competing. Bartlett Invitational 10 a.m. Saturday, Sunrise Park Crystal Lake South and Jacobs will be the local teams competing in the meet. – Joe Stevenson

Village Vintner staff member Jill Annen (left) delivers a pizza to Zehra Hyderi and Ali Hyderi of Lake in the Hills as they dine at the restaurant in Algonquin. Village Vintner is a combination winery, brewery and restaurant.

Brewing up success Village Vintner builds on reputation in Algonquin By CHELSEA McDOUGALL ALGONQUIN – Brothers Bob and Steve Boyer want patrons to know that the beer brewed at Algonquin’s Village Vintner is not the same swill your parents used to drink. Microbreweries, like Village Vintner, have been popping up all over the country, primarily in West Coast states such as California, Oregon and Washington, Steve Boyer said. According to the Brewers Association, an industry organization that promotes small, independent American brewers, there are 2,347 craft brewers in the U.S. compared with just under 2,000 the year before. Steve Boyer believes the younger clientele can be credited for the emerging successes of craft brews. “The younger generation is really on the forefront of that,” he said. “They’re tired of the Budweisers.” Added Bob Boyer: “that their parents grew up on. … We all grew up on Old Milwaukee, Pabst, Budweiser. Everybody’s realizing it’s not about how much you drink, it’s about what’s in it.” The Village Vintner’s most popular beers are the Vanilla Cream Ale, with a flavor reminiscent of sipping on a bottle of cream soda; Hop Rocket, a strong-bodied IPA; and Cocoa Vanilla Stout, called “rich and creamy.” But what sets the Village Vintner apart from others is that they’re one of only two brewery-winery combinations in the entire state. The other is near St. Louis, they said. In fact, the business got its start as a popular winery in Carpentersville before relocating to a larger space in Algonquin, just off Randall Road. “There are not too many places you can do a tasting of beer and wine in one location,” Bob Boyer said. Village Vintner has a full menu of red, white, fruit and dessert wines to

satisfy just about any palate. While the company got its start making wine, but to rewind even further, Steve Boyer credits his mail carrier for sparking his interest. The mailman and the future brewmaster had casual conversations about wine over the mailbox. Shortly thereafter, the postal worker offered to show him the extensive wine-making operation he had been running with his friends. Steve Boyer was hooked. “It started out as a hobby; now it’s work,” he said, laughing. But there’s more to the Village

Vintner than the beer and wines made in house at their sprawling location at 2380 Esplanade Drive in Algonquin. It has a menu with items that use only fresh ingredients. “We don’t even have a microwave,” Bob Boyer said as a point of pride. Both brothers said the ribs are their favorite dish on the menu, saying that they are slowly cooked overnight in a wood burner. The wood-fire pizzas also are a fan favorite. The restaurant seats 100 with and room for another 25 on a patio for dining al fresco. Since it opened in Algonquin’s Esplanade more than a year ago, the restaurant, brewery and winery has been relying primarily on word-of -mouth referrals to boost clientele. So far, it’s working. Last year, Village Vintner produced 6,000 gallons of wine and brewed 8,000 gallons of beer. “If you got something good, people will find you,” Bob Boyer said.

U.S. consumers boost spending 0.3 percent By MARTIN CRUTSINGER Associated Press WASHINGTON – U.S. consumers increased their spending slightly last month as their income grew at the fastest pace in six months. The figures point to only modest economic growth in the July-September quarter. Consumers’ spending on goods and services rose 0.3 percent in August, the Commerce Department said Friday. That’s up from a 0.2 percent gain in July, which was slightly more than the 0.1 percent reported last month. Income rose 0.4 percent in August, the best gain since February and up from a 0.2 percent July increase. Private wages and salaries

rose 0.5 percent, while the government wages and salaries rose 0.2 percent. The government figures would have been higher if not for forced federal furloughs that reduced wages and salaries by $7.3 billion. Consumer spending drives 70 percent of economic activity. Many analysts say the increases are not enough to accelerate economic growth in the third quarter from the 2.5 percent annual rate in the AprilJune quarter. “With more money coming in, consumers spent a little, just a little, more freely,” said Jennifer Lee, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets. And Americans grew

more pessimistic this month about the economy, their own finances, and government budget policies, according to a survey of consumer confidence released Friday. The University of Michigan says its final reading of consumer sentiment dropped to 77.5 in September from 82.1 in August. It was the second straight decline after confidence reached a six-year high of 85.1 in July. Paul Ashworth, chief U.S. economist at Capital Economics, predicts the economy is growing at an annual rate of 2 percent to 2.5 percent in the July-September quarter. Still, the pickup in August spending could signal stronger growth in the fi-

nal three months of the year. But other economists are less hopeful. Peter Newland, an economist at Barclays, said that the modest increase did not change Barclay’s forecast for growth at a 1.7 percent rate. Americans saved some of the extra money they earned last month. The personal savings rate edged up to 4.6 percent of after-tax income, a slight improvement from 4.5 percent in July. Consumers are benefiting from mild inflation. An inflation gauge tied to consumer spending increased 1.2 percent over the past 12 months, well below the Federal Reserve’s 2 percent target. Some Fed officials have argued that the central bank

should not start reducing its support for the economy until inflation has risen closer to the Fed’s target. A recent spike in interest rates and mixed signals from the job market were key reasons the Fed decided held off last week on reducing its $85-billion-a-month in bond purchases. The Fed also scaled back its economic growth estimate for this year and next. There are some signs that consumers may be better positioned to step up spending soon. The number of people seeking unemployment benefits has sunk to its lowest point in six years because few companies are laying anyone off anymore.

Nairobi attack puts spotlight on mall safety worldwide

FHA to draw $1.7b from Treasury to cover losses WASHINGTON – A federal housing agency said Friday it needs a $1.7 billion bailout from the Treasury to cover projected losses in its reverse mortgage programs, which allow seniors to borrow against their homes for everyday living expenses. Federal Housing Administration Commissioner Carole Galante told Congress in a letter that her agency will withdraw the money from the Treasury before the fiscal year ends Monday. Congressional approval is not required. The cash infusion is the first in the agency’s 79-year history.

By ANNE D’INNOCENZIO Associated Press NEW YORK – Some malls around the world have been scrambling to add security guards to look for suspicious people following a deadly attack on a shopping center in Nairobi last weekend. But for other malls, it’s been business as usual. The mixed reactions by malls across the globe isn’t unusual in an industry whose security efforts vary from unarmed guards in most shopping centers in the U.S. to metal detectors and bag searches in places like Israel to main entrances that resemble airport security lines in India. The disparity offers a glimpse of why any moves following the Nairobi incident to increase mall security in countries that have less strict procedures aren’t likely to last: The industry continues to struggle with how to keep shoppers safe without scaring them away. “No one wants, when you go shopping, to be strip-searched, to be interviewed in a room by a security guard,” said Simon Bennett, director of Civil Safety and Security Unit at the University of Leicester in England. “That might be acceptable in aviation, but it is not in commercial retail.” Security concerns come after 12 to 15 militants from the Somali Islamic extremist group al-Shabab, wielding grenades, took control of the upscale Westgate mall in Nairobi. Terrorists held Kenya security forces for four days, killing at least 67 civilians and government troops and injuring 175 others. The Kenyan government said Tuesday that the attackers were defeated, with several suspects killed or arrested. On Wednesday, FBI agents

Exxon to offer benefits to same-sex couples in U.S. NEW YORK – Exxon Mobil Corp. said Friday that it will begin offering benefits to legally married same-sex couples in the U.S. for the first time starting next week. The company said it will recognize “all legal marriages” when it determines eligibility for health care plans for the company’s 77,000 employees and retirees in the U.S. That means if a gay employee has been married in a state or country where gay marriage is legal, his or her spouse will be eligible for benefits with Exxon in the U.S. as of Oct. 1.

ing about one-third of retail space globally, said the U.S. government’s Department of Homeland Security is reaching out to corporate security at all malls. At the same time, the group said some of the malls in the U.S. and South Africa are beefing up private security personnel, while others are bringing in more off-duty police officers. Mall of America, the biggest U.S. mall, added extra uniformed security officers and stepped up other measures, but officials at the Bloomington, Minn.-based mall declined to elaborate. “We will ... remain vigilant as we always do in similar situations,” said Dan Jasper, a mall spokesman. In general, U.S. malls focus on reacting to a shooting more than pre-

venting one. Malls depend on private security personnel, most of whom don’t carry guns, though they do work with local police. And while they’re trained to look for suspicious behavior and report that to authorities, they’re discouraged from intervening. “Shoppers at this point perhaps don’t have an appetite for extraordinary measures,” said Kenneth Hamilton, executive vice president of IPC International, the largest provider of shopping center security of malls in the U.S. Indeed, heightened security hasn’t been welcomed in U.S. malls. The International Council of Shopping Centers spent $2 million to develop a terrorism training program after the September 2001 terrorist attacks in the U.S. But surveys conducted by the group following the attacks show that people don’t want to be subjected to metal detectors and bag searches at malls. Jeff Wohl, 45, of Atlanta, said Tuesday that while he’s horrified by the Nairobi attack, he doesn’t want to go through bag checks at malls. “Any public gathering ... can become a target,” he said. “But you have to live your life.” U.S. malls have made changes to their security strategies following attacks. A shooting on Dec. 5, 2007, at the Westroads Mall in Omaha, Neb., for instance, was an impetus for malls to change how they deal with shooters themselves. After a 19-year-old man shot and killed eight people and injured five others before taking his own life, malls began working with Homeland Security on a plan to have the first responders from the police department enter the building to stop the shooter and free those who are trapped rather than wait for backup.

By PHILLIP ALDER Newspaper Enterprise Association

In the last two days, we have looked at deals in which a lot of errors were made. Let’s end the week with one where the bidding was sane and the defense excellent. After three passes, North opened because her hand satisied the Rule of 15. If high-card points plus spade length equal at least 15, open; otherwise, pass out the deal. South, who would have responded two hearts anyway, was even happier here because he was a passed hand; North wasn’t going to assume that his partner had a lot of points. West contested with two spades (a makable contract), and North competed to three hearts with four-card support, despite her minimum count and lat hand. South passed, knowing that if game was good, North would have bid it. West led the diamond ace. Then she did very well, shifting to the spade 10, denying the jack. That made it easy for East to win with his king and return the diamond jack. West won with her king and led another diamond, which

declarer ruffed. South drew two rounds of trumps ending on the board and called for the spade nine. East went in with his ace, but what did he do next? Some players would have shifted fatally to a club. But East worked out declarer’s distribution. South was known to have started with two spades, ive hearts, two diamonds and, therefore, four clubs. East could not gain by leading a club, so he returned a spade and waited for his club queen to defeat the contract.

TODAY - Accept the inevitable with grace and aplomb in the year ahead. Look out for your interests and let your intelligence lead the way. Old talents and skills will help you meet new demands. Rein in your emotions and get your budget under control. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- It won’t be easy dealing with emotional uncertainties. Be careful not to overreact; you may not be able to afford it. A relationship will need an adjustment if it’s going to work. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Book a trip or engage in something that inspires you. Awaken yourself to the many opportunities for rejuvenation and refreshment that surround you. If you bring passion into your work life, success will result. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Say what you mean and do what you say. If an endeavor requires physical risk, it would be best to openly disengage from it at the outset. If you commit to something, make sure that you can deliver. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Let the people you care about know what you are up to. Including loved ones in your plans will build strong bonds and help you attain your goals. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Expect delays and be prepared to find ways around whatever setback you encounter. Being adaptable will help you guard against negativity and complaints. Being passionate will improve your situation. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Plunge forward with optimism. Engage in events and activities that allow you to show off. Romance is in the stars, and socializing will lead to many new opportunities. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don’t share your secrets. It’s best to get everything in order before you present your plans. Emotions will escalate regarding financial and domestic matters. Don’t tolerate a bully. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- It’s a good day to entertain or make special plans. Try something different and explore new places that interest you. Sharing with people you enjoy should take top priority. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- See what’s required at work and set your sights on the end results. Find ways to make your living quarters more entertaining or comfortable, but don’t buy what you cannot afford. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Enjoy getting out today. Take time to go to your local spa or a place that you find relaxing. Exploring your surroundings and experimenting with new possibilities will bring good results. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don’t let anyone bully you into something that you don’t care to do. Pick and choose whom and what you pursue. Keep your personal affairs private and avoid the backlash of a meddler. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- In a business or partnership involvement, size up what’s being offered and counter with something that you think is fair and feasible. You’ll impress someone you care for with your hard-nosed negotiations. Plan a romantic evening.

At WOODSTOCK – When Johnsburg quarterback Nick Brengman took a step backward and let his right knee touch the grass for the second time, it became official. The Skyhawks’ sideline and the student section rushed the field to join a rowdy celebration already in progress as Johnsburg, wearing its road white jerseys with blue pants, ended its 25-game losing streak in a wild 22-21 win over Woodstock North.

“It’s unbelievable. It’s what we’ve been working toward for so long.” The Thunder (1-4 overall, 1-2 Fox Valley Conference Fox Division) took advantage of the Skyhawks’ high emotions early on, forcing a fumble on the opening kickoff and scoring on the ensuing drive as Grant Wade punched it in from the 1-yard line. North missed the extra point. The Skyhawks answered near the end of the first quarter as Brengman found Alec Graef for a 14-yard touchdown and a 7-6 lead. It was a lead the Skyhawks wouldn’t give up.

Rogers sparks Gators’ offense By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO

Sarah Nader –

Prairie Ridge’s Danny Meikel runs a play during the fourth quarter of Friday’s game against Cary-Grove in Crystal Lake. Cary-Grove defeated Prairie Ridge, 6-0.

Trojans preserve shutout by forcing ive turnovers By JOE STEVENSON CRYSTAL LAKE – CaryGrove’s memory of dynamic defensive efforts of the past at Prairie Ridge Athletic Stadium prevented any complacency. The Trojans threw up a brick wall in front of Prairie Ridge Friday night, but C-G coaches remembered the Wolves’ late drive and Cullen Fahey’s 42-yard game-winning field goal on the final play in 2007. And coaches and players both recalled Prairie Ridge’s hook-and-lateral play that forced overtime in 2011, a game which C-G eventually won in overtime, 22-21. “We couldn’t get ahead of ourselves,” Trojans defensive end Emerson Kersten said. “One slipup, and one big play could do it. We kept looking forward to each play and stopping them on that play.” That mindset was ideal. C-G limited Prairie Ridge to 54 total yards and forced five turnovers in a 6-0 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division victory, the Trojans’ third consecutive win. “The defense did make me feel good, but we’ve witnessed a couple of strange things here,” Trojans coach Brad Seaburg said. “We knew it could have come down to one play. Our defense was just unbelievable. They’re so fast. They really get to the ball fast. We know about [the defense] because we see them in practice all week.” C-G (3-2 overall, 3-0 FVC Valley) is one-half game ahead of Jacobs in the divi-

sion standings. Its offense gained 242 total yards, with freshman fullback Tyler Pennington carrying 34 times for 175 yards. But the Trojans stalled on drives deep in Wolves’ territory twice in the first half, and freshman kicker Colin Walsh made field goals of 25 and 22 yards. That was enough for C-G’s swarming defense. “We just had to execute what we do on a daily basis in practice,” Kersten said. “Just get to the ball like we do. We communicated very

well.” Pennington has 306 yards in his two starts, but the Trojans’ offense was far from satisfied. “It’s frustrating when we have 80- and 60-yard drives and then we can’t punch it in because of breakdowns,” C-G offensive tackle Trevor Ruhland said. “Our defense played outstanding. They held a pretty good team to zero points. We need to get back to work. We have [running back] Zach [McQuade] coming back and we’ve won three in a row.” Willie Hartke, Matt Sutherland and Larkin Hanselmann all had interceptions for the Trojans, who allowed only three first downs for the game. C-G ran 68 offensive plays to Prairie

Ridge’s 33. The Wolves (2-3, 1-2) have been shut out in two of their last three games. “Our defense played phenomenally,” Wolves coach Chris Schremp said. “We couldn’t ask for them to do much more than what they did.” Schremp started sophomore Luke Annen at quarterback, but junior Brett Covalt, who was starter to begin the season, replaced him in the second half. The Wolves just had no answer for C-G’s defensive speed. “Their defense is so fast,” Schremp said. “It’s unbelievable how fast they are. We want to play fast, but we couldn’t play as fast as they did. They were playing at one speed and we were two steps slow.”

Stefka’s father handed game ball by Johnsburg’s Dixon Johnsburg WN

• STREAK IS OVER Continued from page 1 EXTRA North threatened, however, with a dominant rushing game that totaled 276 yards, including a 20-yard touchdown run by Wade followed by a 4-yard run by Jordan Plummer in the fourth quarter to cut the deficit to 22-21. Johnsburg (1-4, 1-2 FVC Fox) had natural motivation each week, fighting to end the losing streak that had turned from being just a number into a large barrier. Week by week, the pressure mounted. The losing streak followed them from the field to school and home. It also found its way into the hallways. Junior defensive back Bailey Stefka, last week’s Skyhawks defensive player of the week, had an episode related to his Kleine-Levin Syndrome, which he has fought since 2009. It is a neurological disorder that affects sleep patterns

Johnsburg senior Steve Dixon (2) cheers on his team Friday during the second quarter of the game against Woodstock North. Johnsburg won, ending a 25-game losing streak. and behavior. It had been under control until Stefka said it came back on Monday, forcing him to sit out for the foreseeable future. So Johnsburg coach Mike Maloney asked Stefka’s best friend, Steve Dixon, to wear Stefka’s No. 2 jersey. Not only did the senior wear it, he near-

ly duplicated a play that Stefka made last week. Dixon intercepted Thunder quarterback Jimmy Krenger with 7:19 to play in the second quarter and returned it 79 yards for a touchdown, which made Stefka’s father, Dan, think of his son. It was one of four turnovers that the Johns-

burg defense forced in the game. “Just to play for Bailey tonight meant so much,” Dixon said through tears after the game. “It was so emotional. This game was personal for me and wearing his jersey meant so much. It was all for him.” After the coaches spoke to the players following the game, Dixon handed Dan Stefka the game ball as the team huddled around the teary-eyed father. With Dan Stefka in the middle, Dixon started the countdown and the team yelled, “1-2-3, FAMILY.”

McHENRY – As Crystal Lake South took the field for Friday’s game at McHenry, the Gators’ offense needed a spark after averaging 9.5 points through its first four games. With a potential loss giving the Gators an uphill battle to reach the playoffs, South senior quarterback Austin Rogers knew he needed to spark the offense. Rogers didn’t disappoint in delivering his best performance of the season. McHenry struggled to stop Rogers – through the air and on the ground. Rogers completed 12 of 16 passes for 116 yards and two touchdowns, while amassing 78 rushing yards and one touchdown on 12 carries to lead the Gators to a 28-21 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division win. Two interceptions by senior defensive back Brandon LaPak in the final five minutes derailed McHenry’s comeback bid. McHenry finished with four turnovers in the loss. “I feel like I’m one of the leaders on the team and that I need to step up and make plays for our team,” Rogers said. “When I make plays, it gives everyone else confidence and play better. I try to get people to thrive off my energy.” South coach Chuck Ahsmann made a personnel change entering Friday’s game, moving Chris Ivers to tailback while the 205-pound Eric Landis became the fullback, giving the Gators a bigger blocker. Ivers finished with 157 rushing yards on 24 carries and a 1-yard touchdown run with nine seconds left in the second quarter to give South a 21-7 lead at halftime. “Those guys did a great job executing,” Ahsmann said. “In

the past, we were able to move the ball and then we didn’t execute somewhere along the line. Today we executed and that’s what we needed.” The Gators (2-3, 1-2 FVC Valley) controlled the line of scrimmage against the Warriors (2-3, 0-2) especially in the first half. South had 245 yards of offense in the first half. Thomas Hellios 5-yard run and a two-point conversion pulled McHenry within seven with 5:11 remaining. Junior defensive back Tyler Baker picked off McHenry quarterback Mike Briscoe on the second play of the game and the Gators’ offense went to work. Rogers led South on an 11-play, 85-yard drive spanning nearly six minutes capped by an 11-yard touchdown pass to Kyle Bartusch for a 7-0 Gators lead. McHenry brushed off the turnover on its ensuing possession and wore down South’s defense on the legs of Hellios. But another turnover cost the Warriors and thwarted a great drive. Facing third and goal at South’s 12-yard line, the Warriors fumbled on a reverse, which South senior linebacker Travis Dziedzic recovered to end a 15-play McHenry drive. “There’s no doubt the turnovers hurt us,” McHenry coach Dave D’Angelo said. “We didn’t take advantage of opportunities in the first half. We had guys open deep and we didn’t hit them.”


Mooney throws 4 TDs in win By STEVE REPSYS ALGONQUIN – After an 0-2 start, the stock is soaring for the Jacobs football team as the Golden Eagles won their third straight game Friday night. Thanks in part to senior quarterback Bret Mooney who threw for four touchdown passes (39, 23, 14 and 32 yards), the Eagles (3-2) cruised to a 43-21 victory on homecoming night. Jacobs scored on seven of its 10 possessions. The first TD strike came just 13 seconds in as Mooney connected with junior Ryan Sargent for a 39-yard score. “Our offense has the talent to score every time we have the ball,” said Mooney, who threw for a game-high 285 yards. “We definitely started off well and wanted to hit (Woodstock) quickly and we accomplished that.” Jacobs’ past three games, Mooney has connected on 11 touchdown passes and thrown

for nearly 600 yards. Mooney credited his offensive line for much of his success. “I’ve been getting a lot of time in the pocket and finally getting into a rhythm. Our offense is starting to execute all the new plays we’ve put in this season.” Golden Eagles coach Bill Mitz knows he has a real gem in Mooney, who already has an offer from Colgate and is being heavily looked at by several other schools. “We have a real kingpin at quarterback,” said Mitz. Added right guard Mark Mamola, “It’s great to watch (Mooney) up close. He’s an amazing asset for us on offense. He’s been doing well and I hope he continues to do so.” Offensively, the Blue Streaks (0-5) were led by QB Alan Hafer, who threw for 190 yards and tossed two touchdown strikes (14 and 77 yards).

Tigers roll past Rams as defense leads way By BILL PEMSTEIN GRAYSLAKE – Crystal Lake Central spoiled Grayslake Central’s homecoming football game handily Friday night. The Tigers dominated on both sides of the ball and beat the Rams, 34-10, in Fox Valley Conference Fox Division play. The next Grayslake team in the sights of the Tigers (4-1 overall, 2-0 FVC Fox) is unbeaten Grayslake North. Crystal Lake Central will travel there for homecoming next Friday. The Tigers’ fourth win came rather easily as their defense allowed just one late first-half touchdown and one fourth-quarter field goal. “Our run defense is pretty good,’’ Crystal Lake Central senior Nathan Talbott said. “In fact, it’s one of the best. Outside of a few plays, we really shut them down.” Grayslake Central (3-2, 1-2) moved the ball rather well in its first possession. The Rams drove into Tigers territory before surrendering the football on downs. The Tigers’ first run of the game netted 27 yards and Ryan Williams’ gallop pulled the Tigers out of some tough field possession. Using a steady attack featuring Williams, the Tigers marched 91 yards on 15 plays to grab the first lead of the game. Despite nine runs from Williams, senior Connor Hines got the call for the touchdown, which he delivered from 3 yards out. “They gave us five in the box,’’ senior quarterback Kyle Lavand said. “So we ran the ball.” And then the Tigers and Lavand took to the air. It was 14-0 midway through the second quarter when Lavand found Luke Novy on a 16-yard touchdown pass. “That’s our spread high-tempo offense,’’ Lavand said. “It’s kind of like the Oregon Ducks. It’s a blast and a lot of fun.” The Tigers weren’t through scoring in the first half. Lavand began to find his favorite target, Jack Ortner, on a few passing plays. It took less than two minutes for Central to find the end zone again. This time, Williams did the honors from 3 yards out. The Central lead was 210. The Rams did manage a touchdown pass before halftime. Williams answered that score with his second touchdown of the night from 7 yards out early in the third quarter. In the fourth quarter, Lavand and Ortner connected on a 42yard touchdown pass.


D-C’s defense earns 2nd-half shutout By JEFF ARNOLD CARPENTERSVILLE – Time after time Friday night, the Dundee-Crown defense was pushed to its brink. But the two biggest tests would come in the final minutes of the fourth quarter when Huntley pushed deep into D-C territory. Both times, though, the Chargers withstood the charge, completing a second-half shutout that preserved a 17-14 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division victory. “We had a really good defensive week of practice

and we’re starting to see the fruits of our practices,” Chargers coach Vito Andriola said. “It shows because [Huntley] has a bunch of weapons and they didn’t score in the second half.” The Chargers (4-1, 2-1 FVC Valley) took the lead for good on Malik Dunner’s 41-yard touchdown run with 7:44 remaining in the third

quarter. That proved to be all D-C needed, even though Huntley (2-3, 0-2) kept threatening until the end. The Red Raiders moved the ball, but struggled with discipline throughout the night. Huntley had three touchdowns negated by holding penalties. Despite that, Huntley remained intent on snapping its twogame losing streak. Still trailing by three late in the fourth quarter, Huntley reached the D-C 4-yard line. But after the Red Raiders failed to reach the end zone, kicker Donnie Young pushed a 22-yard field goal attempt wide right. After D-C went three and

out on its next drive, Huntley regained possession with just under three minutes to play. Again, the Red Raiders methodically moved the ball downfield. After Blake Jacobs connected with Brandon Altergott, moving the ball to the Chargers’ 15-yard line and then got closer on a completion to Kyle Kesul, coach John Hart allowed the clock to wind down to 5 seconds, giving Young a second chance to tie the game. But again, Young’s attempt – this time from 28 yards – sailed wide right. “We’re still playing as hard as we possibly can play,” said Hart, whose team

has lost three straight games – all by seven points or less. “We’re making silly mistakes, and I don’t know why we are. We’ve just got to be a better team.” Meanwhile, D-C picked up what Andriola called his first “program win” – a reference to the way his players have believed in the system and have seen things pay off this season. Friday night, it was the defense’s turn to prove its meddle. “This is a really big win,” Dunner said. “We shut it down defensively – we haven’t been playing well defensively the last few weeks and we just shut them down this week.”

Hornets too tough Harvard tops Marengo for 12th straight time By ANDREW HANSEN HARVARD – The Harvard football team’s punishing drives were too much for Marengo in their 35-13 Big Northern Conference East Division victory. The Hornets (5-0 overall, 2-0 BNC East) captured their 12th straight win in McHenry County’s oldest rivalry, dropping the Indians (0-5, 0-2) to their 13th consecutive loss. Harvard’s offensive line of Dakota Trebes, Adam Freimund, Kyle Peterson, Juan Carbajal and Anthony Milanko helped pave the way for 307 yards on the ground, and three scoring drives of more than 10 plays. “It’s the best feeling,” Trebes said of blocking on the long drives. “It’s just hard work. We come off the ball and we’re very consistent. It’s very blue collar.” Fullback Jose Mejia scored three rushing touchdowns to go with 125 yards on 27 carries, with Ben Platt adding 148 yards on 12 carries and a touchdown. “It’s a team effort,” Mejia said. “I feel like we can do a

lot with the line blocking that way.” Tailback Christian Kramer made his return to the Hornets’ backfield after missing last week’s game with a shoulder injury. Kramer only had three carries for 9 yards, but did his damage on the Hornets’ first scoring drive of the game. Kramer converted a fourthand-2, and seven plays later punched it in from 2 yards out. The Hornets started the second half by putting together a 13-play, 75-yard scoring drive withMejiarushingseventimes and Platt adding five rushes to end with Mejia scoring from 2 yards out. Harvard coach Tim Haak said the plan was to get Kramer a few carries this game. “He’s getting better every day,” Haak said.

The Indians were held to 43 yards on the ground, but found success in the air. Marengo quarterback Zach Knoblock went 14 for 18 for 189 yards and two touchdowns and an interception. “He did a real nice job stepping up, staying composed and being in the moment,” Indians coach Matt Lynch said. Marengo answered Harvard’s first score with a fiveplay drive that ended with Knoblock finding wide receiver Dustin Rondorf on a play-action rollout for a 9-yard touchdown pass. Knoblock added a 46-yard touchdown to Jarrell Jackson in the third quarter. Jackson finished with 42 rushing yards on 12 attempts with six receptions for 70 yards. Rondorf added 81 yards on four receptions. Harvard answered both of the Indians’ scores with touchdowns. The Hornets had a 10play, 85-yard drive, featuring a 38-yard reception by Justin Nolen, that ended in Mejia’s first touchdown. Nolen had 68 yards on four receptions. After the long pass to Jackson for the Indians, Harvard went 10 plays and 67 yards for Platt to score.

RICHMOND – The Richmond-Burton offensive line showed up in a big way Friday to boost the Rockets to a 27-20 Big Northern Conference crossover victory over Mendota. The R-B rushing attack ran for 286 yards and helped the Rockets hold possession for more than 20 minutes in the first half. The Rockets (3-2) ran 24 plays in their first two possessions, which both resulted in touchdowns for a 14-0 lead. Mendota was never able to fully recover. The improving offensive line proved to be a huge factor in the game. The line produced almost two 100-yard rushers and dominated the Trojans up front throughout the game. “Dominating the game’s possession is always our objective,” R-B coach Pat Elder said. “This is probably the best game our offensive line has played so far.” Rockets rusher Brad Boelkow was the main recipient of the offensive line’s performance. Boelkow ran the ball 15 times for 110 yards and two touchdowns. Boelkow led the rushing attack, but he was certainly not alone. Vincent Battaglia ran the ball 17 times for 91 yards and the teams’ leading rusher last week, Luke Brinkmann, battled the flu to run for 40 yards himself.

“It’s homecoming and everybody was pumped for this game,” Boelkow said. “The line really showed up and were on a mission today. They made me look really good.” The crucial play of the game came in the fourth quarter, when Brinkmann used his arm, rather than his legs, to put R-B up 27-14. Brinkmann took a toss in the backfield and then threw a flea-flicker pass to Nicholas Logan in the end zone for the game-deciding touchdown. Despite the Rockets dominating the time of possession, the game was far from over late in the fourth quarter, when the Trojans scored to make it 27-20 with just over three minutes left. Mendota managed to get the ball back, but Danny Rygiel intercepted a pass with 43 seconds left to seal the victory. “I think everybody is just getting better and better every week,” R-B offensive lineman Bryce Wagner said. “We want to be a good team and we have the potential. The offensive line should be the strong point, every week.”


Long night for Whips By TOM MUSICK GRAYSLAKE – Hampshire’s first three plays on offense Friday against Grayslake North consisted of a 1-yard loss, a 3-yard loss and a 3-yard loss. It was a sign of a long, disappointing night ahead for the Whip-Purs. Grayslake North scored the game’s first six touchdowns to prompt a running clock in a 4214 Fox Valley Conference Fox Division win against Hampshire. The Knights (5-0 overall, 3-0 FVC Fox) remained unbeaten while Hampshire (3-2, 1-2) looked to bounce back quickly for its upcoming game against Woodstock North. “Like I just told the kids, we were outcoached and we were outplayed,” Hampshire coach Dan Cavanaugh said. “That was apparent. We didn’t execute like we should have, and that’s on me. So we’ll come back to the drawing board on Monday.” Meanwhile, the Knights might have to guard against overconfidence. Five players scored touchdowns for Grayslake North, which notched 28 points in a span of 6:46 in the first half thanks to three rushing touchdowns and a 49-yard pass down the seam from Merrick Gentile to Andrew Martineau. Gentile finished the game with 169 passing yards and two touchdowns while adding 141 rushing yards and a touchdown on the ground.

Hampshire 0 0 0 14 – 14 Grayslake N. 21 7 14 0 – 42 First Quarter GN – Booker 5 run (Drewno kick), 6:39 GN – Martineau 49 pass from Gentile (Drewno kick), 4:09 GN – Gentile 5 run (Drewno kick), 2:33 Second Quarter GN – Booker 6 run (Drewno kick), 11:53 Third Quarter GN – Baker 24 pass from Gentile (Drewno kick), 9:25 GN – Deligiannis 3 run (Drewno kick), 3:02 Fourth Quarter H – Kielbasa 31 run (Franzen kick), 9:50 H – Kielbasa 2 run (Franzen kick), 7:53

Hampshire had a much tougher time moving the ball against the Knights, who had a shutout until Nick Kielbasa rushed for two touchdowns with the game out of hand in the fourth quarter. Kielbasa (23 carries, 133 yards, 2 TDs) was the lone bright spot on offense, while quarterback Nick Mohlman (3 for 11, 32 yards, 2 INTs) struggled to find open receivers. “They were very prepared,” Mohlman said of Grayslake North. “Any time I dropped back to pass, they know who they had to cover, they knew how they had to cover. “Good coaching, good players. All around, they’re a very good team.” Knights coach Steve Wood credited his players on both sides of the ball for their dominant performance. A big crowd packed the bleachers as part of Grayslake North’s homecoming festivities. “I couldn’t be happier with our week of preparation, how the kids prepared with all of the distractions going on with homecoming,” Wood said.
