Lathan Goumas –

Tim Wierschke looks at his wife, Sandy, as they pose for a portrait Thursday at their home in McCullom Lake. Sandy Wierschke was diagnosed with brain cancer 7½ years ago and was given less than a year to live. She is one of 33 cancer patients who believe their cancer was caused by chemical company Rohm and Haas’ Ringwood plant. Wierschke will undergo surgery again Monday to have a returning brain tumor removed.

McCullom Lake brain cancer plaintiffs fight to see appeals ruling with treatment is less than a year, and victims have only a 3 percent chance of being alive five years after diagnosis. Her husband, Tim, said her doctors have put her in the top half of 1 percent of people who have lived the longest. Part of what keeps her going, they said last week, is that she wants to live to face the chemical manufacturer that she and 32 other plaintiffs blame for their brain and pituitary tumors. “Everyone knows Sandy



cCULLOM LAKE – Sandy Wierschke was given seven months to live when she was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme brain cancer. That was more than seven years ago. The odds of her survival are even more remote than the three in 100,000 odds of getting the deadly disease. The average survival time

Sandy is going back into surgery Monday morning at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge – her last MRI caught the cancer growing back. “I want my day in court,” said Sandy, sitting next to her husband in their McCullom Lake home and behind the

Like it or not, we live in an increasingly digital world. For good or bad, social media create a more open and connected world – one that allows people to share details of their lives with family and friends. While divulging daily minutiae online is fun for some, for survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking, that seemingly ubiquitous status update could put detailed information at their abusers’ fingertips. “[Social media are] kind of a really easy tool for someone to get information, which is a danger for anyone, but then specifically when you’re in that situation – be it dating or domestic violence,” Turning Point’s Molly Horton said. “For someone to have that information, it heightens that danger.” A simple post can reveal where a survivor is, who he or she is with, and what they’re doing – a move that can put them at risk. Facebook responded with a recently released privacy guide for survivors of abuse created in partnership with the National Network to End Domestic Violence. The guide mentors survivors about the privacy controls they can place on their profiles to keep from being exposed to their abusers, all while allowing them to maintain important connections with family and friends and resources.

“It is critical that survivors have the information they need to navigate their lives safely and, in today’s digital age, a significant part of our lives are online.” – Cindy Southworth, from the National Network to End Domestic Violence

Shutdown nearing, House votes to delay health reform By DAVID ESPO

Inside How did we get here? A brief history of American government shutdowns. PAGE A2

The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Locked in a deepening struggle with President Barack Obama, the Republican-controlled House approved legislation late Saturday imposing a one-year delay in key parts of the nation’s health care law

and repealing a tax on medical devices as the price for avoiding a partial government shutdown in a few days’ time. Even before the vote, Senate Democrats pledged to reject the bill, and the White House issued a statement vowing a veto in any event. Republicans are pursuing “a narrow ideological agenda ...

ing end game. If so, a House GOP rank and file would soon have to choose between triggering the first partial shutdown in nearly two decades – or coming away empty-handed from their latest confrontation with Obama. Undeterred, House Republicans pressed ahead with their attempt to squeeze a concession

from the White House in exchange for keeping the government open for business Tuesday. “Obamacare is based on a limitless government, bureaucratic arrogance and a disregard of a will of the people,” said Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Ind.

Shutdowns have long history nically been without money all weekend, but Congress approved emergency spending to keep it running. That morning, Reagan wielded his first veto. He was making a stand against “budget-busting policies,” the president declared, sending federal workers home in Washington and across the nation. It was the first government shutdown. But it lasted only hours. By that afternoon, Congress approved a three-week spending extension more to Reagan’s liking. Workers returned Tuesday. The estimated cost: more than $80 million. Over his two terms, Reagan and congressional Democrats would regularly argue to the brink of shutdown, and twice more they sent workers home for a half-day.

By CONNIE CASS The Associated Press WASHINGTON – OK, gridlocked politicians we’re used to. But why padlock the Statue of Liberty? You don’t see other democracies shuttering landmarks and sending civil servants home just because their political parties can’t get along. Belgian civil servants, for example, carried on nicely for a year and a half while their politicians bickered over forming a new government. A history of government shutdowns, American-style:

Northwest Herald Web Poll Question

The framers of the Constitution gave Congress control over spending as a way to limit the power of the presidency. The government can only spend money “in consequence of appropriations made by law,” or in other words, after Congress says so and with the president’s signature.

1995-96: The real thing.

1800s: Power struggles. Turns out it’s not easy to shoo federal bureaucrats away from the piggy bank. When they wanted to spend more than Congress gave, the War Department and other agencies ordered stuff on credit. Then they would go to Congress seeking an appropriation to pay the bills. Lawmakers felt obliged to cover the government’s debts, but they weren’t happy about it. Congress responded with the Anti-Deficiency Act. Because of the act, officials who spend money Congress hasn’t OK’d face disciplinary action, ranging from hours stuck in budget training to prison time. There are exceptions for spending to protect lives or property.

1900s: A delicate balance. The Anti-Deficiency Act seems clear. But Congress sent mixed messages. Lawmakers routinely failed to pass most of each year’s dozen or so appropriations bills on time. Usually lawmakers would smooth that over with a short-term money approval, called a “con-

But they assumed Congress didn’t want them to turn off the lights and go home. Eventually lawmakers would cough up a spending bill to retroactively paper over the funding gap.

1980: An inconvenient truth. This look-the-other-way system worked for decades. Until the Carter administration. A stickler for the rules, Carter asked his attorney general to look into the Anti-Deficiency Act. In April 1980, Attorney General Benjamin Civiletti issued a startling opinion. “The legal authority for continued operations either exists or it does not,” he wrote. When it does not, government must send employees home. They can’t work for free or with the expectation

By GRANT SCHULTE The Associated Press PIERCE, Neb. – A handful of barely driven vintage Chevrolets fetched more than half a million dollars Saturday at an auction that drew thousands of car buffs from around the world to a small northeast Nebraska town. Bidders and gawkers crowded shoulder-to-shoulder for the auction in a muddy field just west of Pierce, a town of about 1,800. Spectators in helicopters and airplanes circled overhead as the lead auctioneer, Yvette VanDerBrink, inched down the auction line on a wooden platform hauled by a pickup. Event organizers said an estimated 10,000 people traveled from as far as Norway and Brazil to see the sale in person, and more than 3,800 had registered online to bid

Saturday. As of midday, six of the most valuable models had sold for a combined $545,000. The collection belonged to Ray Lambrecht and his wife, Mildred, who ran a Chevrolet dealership in downtown Pierce for five decades before retiring in 1996. Unlike most dealers, Ray Lambrecht stashed many of his unsold cars in a warehouse, at his farm and other spots around town if they didn’t sell in the first year. The first vehicle sold – a sky-blue, 1958 Chevy Cameo pickup driven 1.3 miles – secured the largest bid at $140,000. Another bidder spent $97,500 on a red and white 1963 Impala with 11.4 miles on its odometer, the manufacturer’s plastic on the seat and a yellow typewritten window sticker displaying its original price: $3,254.70.

Five days later, funding for the Federal Trade Commission expired amid a congressional disagreement over limiting the agency’s powers. The FTC halted operations and sent 1,600 workers packing, apparently the first agency closed by a budget dispute. Embarrassed lawmakers made a quick fix. The FTC reopened the next day. The estimated cost of the brouhaha: $700,000.

Cue President Bill Clinton and House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Two men with big ideas and big egos, the Democratic president and the Republican House speaker charged into a cage match and ended up wrestling the U.S. government to the ground. Twice. These shutdowns, for six days and 21 days, were the longest ever. Serious issues were at stake – the future of Medicare, tax cuts, aid for the poor, the budget deficit. But they got lost in the absurdities. The shutdowns didn’t save money; they cost millions. And despite all the buildup, most of government didn’t close because of complexities of the budget and exemptions for essential workers. The tone was set when a huffy Gingrich suggested he had steered the government to a standstill because Clinton relegated him to the back door of Air Force One on an overseas trip. The public tantrum delighted Democrats and cartoonists alike. The president was judged to have “won” the tussle. Republicans took a drubbing in the polls. But faith in government may have been the biggest loser.

Indiana, Illinois govs endorse Illiana Expressway Proposed road would link states south of Chicago The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – The governors of Indiana and Illinois have given their endorsement to a planned 47-mile expressway aimed at relieving traf-

fic congestion in the Chicago area and creating jobs in both states. Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence both threw their support behind the proposed Illiana Expressway during a regional summit Friday at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago. The expressway would link Interstate 65 near Lowell, Ind., in the state’s northwestern corner with Interstate 55, near Wilm-

ington, Ill., south of Chicago. “Whether it’s the Illiana or any mode of transportation, you have to go where the demand is,” Quinn told about 200 people who attended the meeting. At a later panel discussion, Pence also gave the project his endorsement, saying “you have to think regionally, because roads don’t stop at state borders.” “We look forward to the

Ken Robinson of the Marshals Service says deputies arrested Dixon after receiving a call last week from Iowa authorities who had just learned of the mistaken release.

8STATE BRIEFS 5th man charged in mass shooting at Chicago park CHICAGO – A fifth man has been arrested and charged in connection with a shooting at a Chicago park last week that wounded 13 people, including a 3-year-old boy, police said Saturday. David Logan, 22, of Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood, was arrested Wednesday, according to a written statement released by the Chicago Police Department’s Office of News Affairs. He is charged with unlawful use of a weapon without a firearm owner’s identification card as well as obstructing justice, the statement said. Logan was scheduled to appear in bond court Saturday afternoon.

Chicago man mistakenly released from prison CHICAGO – A Chicago man sentenced to 16 years in federal prison for dealing heroin that killed a person was mistakenly released from prison because of an apparent paperwork mix-up.

But before he could begin serving it, Dixon was set free in December from the Stateville Correctional Center in Joliet, where he was completing a sentence for an

Bond set for man charged in U of I student’s death URBANA – A man charged in the stabbing death of a University of Illinois student traveled across the country to confront her because he believed she was cheating on him, prosecutors said Saturday. The Champaign News-Gazette reported that bond was set at $10 million for Yongfei Ci. The 29-year-old University of Illinois Ph.D. student from China is being held on a preliminary charge of murder for the slaying of Mengchen Huang. The 25-year-old was killed Friday morning in her Urbana apartment. Assistant Champaign County State’s Attorney Tim Sullivan said Huang, who also was from China, had told a friend she and Ci had a troubled relationship and that she was afraid of him.

CHICAGO – An SUV plowed into two men standing outside a Chicago restaurant and crashed into the building, sending the victims hurtling through the front window.

He said the two victims were taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn in serious condition. The driver fled and had not been caught as of midday Saturday.

state of Illinois doing its part, but the state of Indiana wants to make it clear we want this project to go forward,” Pence said. The governors’ approval comes in the face of mounting opposition to the proposed highway in Chicago, where a vote will take place in two weeks. The proposed road has also been controversial in northwestern Indiana among res-

idents living in its proposed path, the Times of Munster reported. Former CenterPoint Properties CEO Michael Mullen said at a panel discussion that the expressway would help get trucks off local roads from intermodal facilities such as the one his company developed a decade ago in Joliet. “There are naysayers that don’t quite get it,” Mullen said of the proposed highway.

“But I welcome anyone to drive down there and see the amount of truck traffic moving out of there.” Friday’s three-state summit that also included Wisconsin officials was convened as a follow up on a study done by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, which emphasized the need for the Milwaukee-Chicago-Gary area to develop their economies as one.

Radio problems cited in firefighters’ deaths By FELICIA FONSECA and HANNAH DREIER The Associated Press PRESCOTT, Ariz. – A three-month investigation into the June deaths of 19 Arizona firefighters found that the men ceased radio communication for a half-hour before they were killed in a wildfire blaze. The report did not assign blame, and some family members say that reluctance could put other lives in danger. The 120-page report released Saturday found that proper procedure was followed in the worst firefighting tragedy since Sept. 11, 2001. Investigators suggested that the state of Arizona should possibly update its guidelines and look into better tracking technology. All but one member of the Granite Mountain Hotshots crew died June 30 while protecting the small former gold rush town of Yarnell, about 80 miles northwest of Phoenix, from an erratic, lightning-sparked wildfire. Hotshots are elite backcountry firefighters who hike deep

The Yarnell Hill fire burns June 30 in Glenn Ilah near Yarnell, Ariz. Investigators released a report Saturday on the deaths of 19 elite firefighters battling the blaze in Arizona, nearly three months after the crew became trapped by flames in a brush-choked canyon north of Phoenix. into the brush to fight blazes. While maintaining a neutral tone, the investigation cited badly programmed radios, vague updates and a 33-minute communication blackout while the men hiked out of their safe zone to the

spot where they would eventually be overcome by the fire. Though the report points to multiple failures, investigators did not consider whether the deaths could have been avoided, raising questions about what lessons firefight-

ers will be able to take from the tragedy. At a news conference in Prescott, where the fallen firefighters lived, Shari Turbyfill implored officials to draw stronger conclusions about why her stepson and his com-

rades died, and recommend immediate changes. “Your protection of us is killing us,” she said. “We’re willing to take the heat right now, but I don’t want another family to deal with this.” Her husband, David, said the command center should never have lost track of his 27-year-old son, Travis. “You have to look at communications and GPS devices,” he said. The report, produced by a team of local, state and federal fire experts, provides the first minute-to-minute account of the fatal afternoon. The day went according to routine in the boulder-strewn mountains until the wind shifted around 4 p.m., pushing a wall of fire that had been receding from the firefighters all day back toward them. After that, the command center lost track of the 19 men. Without alerting headquarters, and despite the weather warning, the firefighters left the safety of a burned ridge and dropped into a densely vegetated basin surrounded by mountains on three sides. Investigators noted that the

men failed to perceive the “excessive risk” of this move and said there was no way to know why the firefighters made the deadly decision. The crew, known for its aggressiveness, may have been headed to a fallback safety zone closer to their trucks so that they could retackle the fire more quickly. The command center believed the firefighters had decided to wait out the wind shift in the safety zone. Command did not find out the men were surrounded by flames and fighting for their lives until five minutes before they deployed their emergency shelters, which was more than a half-hour after the weather warning was issued. The firefighters may have failed to communicate during that crucial half-hour because they entered a dead zone, or because they were wary of overloading the radio channels. In the end, the same communication gaps that stymied the rescue effort hindered the reconstruction of the tragedy. “We don’t know that information; we don’t have it,” lead investigator Jim Karels said.

8NATION BRIEFS Guard remembered as loving, steadfast SEVERN, Md. – Slain security guard Richard “Mike” Ridgell was a loving father and steadfast protector of 2,000 workers at the Washington Navy Yard, where he died maintaining his lobby post to keep a shotgun-wielding man from leaving the building, mourners said at a memorial service Saturday. The 52-year-old Westminster resident was remembered at a church service in the Baltimore suburb of Severn, near his boyhood home. The funeral was one of the last two memorial services for the 12 people gunned down Sept. 16 at the Naval Sea Systems Command headquarters. Another service was held Saturday in Washington for network security administrator Sylvia Frasier, 53, of Waldorf.

House OKs bill aimed at improving drug safety WASHINGTON – The House easily approved bipartisan legislation Saturday aimed at improving the safety of drugs produced by compounding pharmacies that mix customized pharmaceuticals. The measure, approved on a voice vote, comes almost a year after a meningitis outbreak that killed 64 people and sickened hundreds more was traced to a compounding company in Fram-

ingham, Mass. Inspectors later found unsanitary conditions at the New England Compounding Center, which has since closed. The measure, aimed at improving how drugs are tracked from production until they are purchased at a drug store, would clarify what sponsors said was confusion over the Food and Drug Administration’s authority over compounded drugs. It would also require the agency to coordinate its oversight of compounded-drug safety with states.

No. 2 nuke commander suspect in casino probe WASHINGTON – The No. 2 officer at the military command in charge of all U.S. nuclear war-fighting forces is suspected in a case involving counterfeit gambling chips at a western Iowa casino and has been suspended from his duties, officials said. Navy Vice Adm. Tim Giardina has not been arrested or charged, Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation special agent David Dales said Saturday. The state investigation is ongoing.

Workers urged to protect hearing from farm clatter Duerst, a 55-year-old Wisconsin dairy farmer with partial hearing loss he attributes to farm noises he was exposed to in his youth. Many farmers are on their own when recognizing their elevated risk of hearing loss, because only the largest U.S. farms operate under federal workplace safety regulations. Though the risks have been known for decades, only more recently have nonprofits, university researchers and federal agencies focused on trying to educate farmers and their children how to avoid hearing loss by wearing sound-cutting earmuffs or ear plugs. Design changes in farm machinery, such as tractors, have made some equipment run quieter, but many still use older, noisier models. And livestock – such as hogs and chickens – packed into barns

By RICK CALLAHAN The Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS – Far from the clatter of cities, the nation’s farmers are assaulted every day by the earsplitting squeals of hundreds of hogs, the roar of tractors and the incessant whine of grain dryers during the fall harvest. An estimated one-third of the nation’s three million farmers have some level of hearing loss caused by their inner ears’ daily bombardment from sounds that can rival a rock concert’s sonic impact. Even farmers still in their 20s can end up with the muffled hearing of someone in middle age if they fail to protect their hearing. “You just can’t get away from the machinery. We’re driving those tractors and they’re so ... loud,” said Tom

still produce the same cacophony of noises; a squealing hog, for example, can be as loud as a running snowmobile. To nudge farmers to protect themselves, farm extension service educators often highlight sobering noise-impact facts at trade shows or conventions. And 4-H programs and some Future Farmers of America chapters use online resources to urge the next generation to wear earmuffs or ear plugs to ward off noises such as operating a tractor without a cab – which can damage hearing in only 15 minutes without protection. Duerst recalls spending hours as a youth around rumbling tractor engines and loud milking machines on the 500acre dairy farm he now coowns near Madison, Wis. “That was just normal when you were a kid. That

States moving to tighten voting laws Republican leaders across the South say the new measures are needed to prevent voter fraud, even though such crimes are rare. Democrats and civil rights groups say the changes are political attacks aimed at minorities and students – voting groups that tend to lean toward Democrats – in states with legacies of poll taxes and literacy tests. In North Carolina, for example, a state board of elections survey found that more than 600,000 registered voters did not have a state-issued ID, a requirement to vote under the state’s new law. Many of those voters are young, black, poor or elderly. “We’re in the middle of the biggest wave of voter suppression since the Voting Rights Act was enacted,” said Katherine Culliton-González, director of voter protection for the Advancement Project, a Washington-based civil rights group that has undertaken legal challenges in several states. For five decades, states and localities with a history of discrimination had to submit all election laws, from new congressional district maps to precinct locations and voting hours, to federal lawyers for approval. That practice ended in June when the Supreme Court struck down the provision in the Voting Rights Act as outdated. Voting rights groups said recent actions by Southern states highlight the need for Congress to retool the rejected sections of the landmark 1965 law that were credited with ensuring ballot access to millions of blacks, American Indians and other minorities. The administration is using the remaining parts of the law to bring court cases.

Many in South changing policies after court ruling By MICHAEL J. MISHAK The Associated Press MIAMI – Emboldened by the Supreme Court decision that struck down the heart of the Voting Rights Act, a growing number of Republican-led states are moving aggressively to tighten voting rules. Lawsuits by President Barack Obama’s administration and voting rights activists say those efforts disproportionately affect minorities. At least five Southern states, no longer required to ask Washington’s permission before changing election procedures, are adopting strict voter identification laws or toughening existing requirements. Texas officials are battling the U.S. Justice Department to put in place a voter ID law that a federal court has ruled was discriminatory. In North Carolina, the GOP-controlled Legislature scaled back early voting and ended a pre-registration program for high school students nearing voting age. Nowhere is the debate more heated than in Florida, where the chaotic recount in the disputed 2000 presidential race took place. Florida election officials are set to resume an effort to remove noncitizens from the state’s voting rolls. A purge last year ended in embarrassment after hundreds of American citizens, most of whom were black or Hispanic, were asked to prove their citizenship or risk losing their right to vote.

Iranian outreach to U.S. faces challenges at home

Syrian minister: Peace plan must include Assad UNITED NATIONS – Syria’s government will not accept any transition peace plan that excludes President Bashar Assad, Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem told The Associated Press in an interview Saturday. He spoke on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly, a day after the Security Council approved a resolution that obliges Syria’s government to comply with an international

By BRIAN MURPHY The Associated Press DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – Before leaving for the United Nations, Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said he hoped to open a new era in dialogue with Washington. He returned to Tehran on Saturday with more in hand than even the most optimistic predictions. Now begins the harder task for Rouhani and his inner circle of Western-educated envoys and advisers, who are suddenly partners with the White House in a potentially history-shifting reset in the Middle East that could push beyond the nuclear standoff and rival in scope the Arab Spring or Israel’s peace pact with Egypt. To build on the stunning diplomatic openings of the past days, Rouhani and his allies now must navigate political channels that make President Barack Obama’s showdowns with his domestic critics seem almost genteel by comparison. Possibly standing in the way of Rouhani’s overtures is an array of hard-liners, led by the hugely powerful Revolutionary Guard, holding sway over nearly everything from Iran’s nuclear program to a paramilitary network that reaches each neighborhood. What’s ahead will measure Rouhani’s resolve. It also will

plan to destroy its chemical weapons arsenal. The resolution also endorsed the outcome of the Geneva conference between the government and the opposition in June 2012, which called for the establishment of a transitional government with full executive powers. The Syrian opposition, which has been embroiled in a bloody conflict with Assad’s forces for two and a half years, has repeatedly said it will not

Lakeside Legacy

take part in any transition government that includes the president. The latest statement from al-Moallem could mean that efforts to organize a second meeting of the opposition and the government later this year in Geneva may fail. “For the Syrian people, Bashar Assad is the elected president until mid-2014, when presidential elections will be held,” al-Moallem said.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani (center) waves to supporters Saturday upon his arrival in Tehran from a U.S. trip in which he had a historic phone conversation with President Barack Obama. test how much the Guard and its backers are willing to accept something other than spite and suspicion toward the U.S. – and what it could all mean for the Guard’s regional footholds that include Syria and the anti-Israel militia Hezbollah in Lebanon. At Rouhani’s arrival in Tehran, backers cheered and held aloft a card calling him a “lord of peace,” while opponents shouted insults and chanted “death to America.” One thing is certain, however. The rapid-fire momentum of diplomacy over the past days cannot be maintained. The linchpin, as always, remains Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the gate keeper for every

key decision. He has so far given critical support to Rouhani’s overtures with Washington – calling for “heroic flexibility” in diplomacy – while giving the Guard a rare scolding to keep its distance from political developments. As long as Rouhani carries Khamenei’s favor, there is unprecedented credibility to his offers to settle the impasse over Iran’s nuclear ambitions after a more than three-decade diplomatic estrangement with the U.S. But Khamenei also is not interested in tearing apart the country. Strong objections from the Guard and other hard-line factions would certainly get his attention.

After week, Nairobi still seeking answers Mood nervous in Kenyan city where terrorists attacked The ASSOCIATED PRESS NAIROBI, Kenya – Someone has dropped a shopping bag just outside the Nakumatt supermarket, and a bottle of juice has shattered. Cranberry, it looks like, or maybe cherry. The liquid leaks from the plastic bag and across the tile floor, puddling in fist-sized splotches of red. Everyone nearby sees it. Some shoppers visibly flinch and take wide circles around the scene, which looks far too much like something else, somewhere else. On Saturday afternoon at Nairobi’s Junction shopping center, many people were thinking about that somewhere else. They were focusing on what had begun one week earlier at the Westgate Mall a couple of miles away, where a team of Islamist gunmen had launched a bloody four-day siege. By the time it ended, at least 67 people were dead, smears of blood tracing the path of the attack. “I don’t want to be here,” said a young woman walking past an upscale Junction wine bar with a friend. “I only came because I had to.” The Junction is far from empty, but it’s not crowded either, and many people say they are on guard. “We’re all looking around, and not at ease,” said the woman, who asked to be identified only by her first name, Malesi. It’s a nervous time in Nairobi. The city isn’t deeply on edge: Bars were crowded Friday night, and there are only a handful of free tables Saturday at the Java House, a popular chain of coffee houses that

also had an outlet at Westgate. But it’s not normal, either. It’s not clear how many people are missing (the Red Cross says 59, the government says none), it’s not clear how many gunmen were involved in the attack, or if any escaped. The government has released almost no information about what happened between Saturday night, when hundreds of people managed to flee the attackers, and Tuesday night, when the siege finally ended. Malesi and her friend mention the rumors spreading through the city of brutally disfigured corpses found in the wreckage. Facebook and Twitter are awash in questions and conspiracy theories. “Maybe it’s so much worse” than the government has admitted, she said. “They haven’t told us anything.” In the first days after the attack, many Kenyans – among Africa’s most active users of Twitter – affixed the tag #WeAreOne to their tweets, capturing the sense of national unity the attack evoked. But by midweek, amid conflicting accounts from officials and an absence of information on key facts, the one began to shift. More and more, the tag has been twisted into #WeAreOne_dering. “Like many Kenyans I’m a bit frustrated. The government isn’t giving us much information. They’re controlling the information,” said Makena Onjerika, 26, a market researcher and blogger who recently wrote a blog post asking what happened to the hostages thought to be held inside the mall. She planned to spend the day doing volunteer work. “We don’t really know what is happening in Westgate,” she said. “Who do we hold accountable for the lives that have been lost?”

Superior Court judges took appeal in September ’12 • LAWSUIT Continued from page A1 walker she needs to get around. “So they can see what I’ve gone through.” Eleven of the plaintiffs are deceased – six of them died after they filed suit. The health of a number of others has taken a turn for the worse. And with the first of the cases to go to trial tied up in the appeals court for the past 2½ years – although a ruling is soon expected – more than a few worry that they won’t live to get their chance.

‘My legs gave out’ The first three plaintiffs were former McCullom Lake next-door neighbors who were diagnosed with brain tumors. They sued Philadelphia-based Rohm and Haas in April 2006, alleging that vinyl chloride and other toxic chemicals from its Ringwood plant a mile and a half north fouled their air and groundwater. Rohm and Haas, now a subsidiary of chemical giant Dow Chemical Co., acknowledges that a plume of volatile organic compounds has leaked into groundwater from decades of dumping by the previous owners into an unlined 8-acre waste pit. Past and present owners have been working for the past two decades to clean it up. But the company vehemently denies allegations that chemicals ever reached area residents or made them sick. Original plaintiff Bryan Freund woke up Tuesday morning in his McCullom Lake home with the same headache he’s had almost every day since his December 2004 diagnosis. The oligodendroglioma brain tumor in his head grew in his most recent MRI. But he takes it in stride compared to the fates of other plaintiffs. The lawsuit of the former neighbor to his right, Franklin Branham, was filed by his widow. The former neighbor to his left, Kurt

Weisenberger, is crippled after a July emergency surgery. Weisenberger, like Freund, has oligodendroglioma. While more survivable than glioblastoma, it is even rarer – about one person in 300,000 is diagnosed with it. “Now I feel I’m surrounded by blessings because I have my mobility and my five senses,” Freund said. Plaintiff Lance Kuhns, who grew up in the Lakeland Park subdivision on the other side of the lake in McHenry, lost his mobility several months ago. He’s in physical therapy with the hopes of getting it back. Kuhns now needs a wheelchair, and his brother, Todd, moved in with him to help take care of him. “It just came out of nowhere. I was in my bedroom, doing something or another, and I just fell. My legs gave out,” Kuhns said. His MRI taken last week came back clean, without the oligodendroglioma that a 2006 surgery – his second after it grew back – removed at the expense of a softball-sized dent in his head. But swelling and fluid buildup are a different matter – he now has a shunt in his head to help it drain. Kuhns, like Freund, grew up next to someone who developed a brain tumor and sued. Their homes weren’t far from another set of childhood neighbors who grew up to develop brain tumors. The unusual links don’t end there; plaintiffs include unrelated people who spent time in the same homes at different times, and a mother and son, both deceased. The case of Joanne Branham, Franklin’s widow, was the first to go to court in September 2010. It has remained in court since.

Waiting for a ruling The trial in a Philadelphia courtroom was expected to last 10 weeks. It lasted five before the judge hearing the case angrily ended it over the expert testimony of the plaintiffs’ epidemiologist.

After a two-day cross-examination in which the epidemiologist’s testimony crumbled, Judge Allan Tereshko ended the trial before plaintiff’s attorney Aaron Freiwald, who had three more experts to call, could rest his client’s case. Tereshko called the epidemiologist’s testimony “an attempt to deceive the court” and “tantamount to fraud.” Freiwald asked for a mistrial, but Tereshko ultimately sided with Rohm and Haas. In April 2011, almost five years to the day since the first lawsuits were filed, he granted the company’s motion to dismiss. Freiwald immediately filed an appeal with the state Superior Court – what Pennsylvania calls its appellate court – in which he blasted Tereshko’s ruling as “a product of emotion and bias.” Chief among Freiwald’s many complaints was an allegation that Tereshko violated long-established court rules by ending the trial before his client rested. Judges typically end a trial in such manner – called granting nonsuit – if they conclude, after the plaintiff has presented all evidence, that the evidence does not support the allegations made. The three Superior Court judges hearing the appeal have had it for deliberation since September 2012, after both sides had opportunities to make their cases. It asked the lower court at the end of May to justify its decision to throw out a claim of strict liability, or that the manufacturing plant did not engage in what the law calls “abnormally dangerous activity.” If overturned, the case will most likely not go back to Tereshko. He was reassigned to family court in January, shortly after he stepped down as supervising judge of the civil court trial divisions under criticism in an unrelated case. A separate panel of Superior Court judges overturning his 2011 ruling in favor of a defendant insurance company chastised him for not disclosing his



wife’s employment with the law firm representing it. The case has since been reassigned to another judge.

How many years Freund is confident that he will make it to trial, but he worries about Weisenberger. Weisenberger lived with his tumor for years because doctors said it was too deep in his brain to remove surgically. But from June to July, it doubled in size, said his wife, Joanne. It then became a choice of removing the tumor or letting it kill him. Joanne Weisenberger said she is unsure whether her husband will get his day in court. “Look how many years it’s been already. Dow has more money than they know what to do with,” she said. The Wierschkes are optimistic. Sandy’s most recent MRI caught the glioblastoma early, before it could grow


the tentacles that make it so difficult to remove. Her most recent MRI revealed a halfinch-thick tumor that wasn’t there three months earlier, Tim Wierschke said. Sandy Wierschke has high praise for her doctors, who are the same ones who have done her previous surgeries. Besides her original neurosurgeon, Dr. John Ruge, she will have the plastic surgeon, Dr. Lucio Pavone, who built a flap on top of her head to replace tissue that had died from previous intense radiation therapy. Tim and Sandy Wierschke hope to keep beating the odds. Freund hopes for the same, both for himself and for his wife, Rusty, whose health has been failing. “Brain cancer just doesn’t try to destroy you. It tries to destroy your life,” Freund said. “Unfortunately, it does a really good job.”

8NATION BRIEF 5 dead in fiery crash in Southern California BURBANK, Calif. – Five people were killed early Saturday morning after their car spun out and burst into flames in Burbank, trapping people inside, officials said. Firefighters assisted the coroner’s office in removing the bodies, which were “burned beyond recognition,” Burbank Fire Capt. Peter Hendrickson said. Lt. Larry Dietz of the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner said fingerprints or dental records might be used to identify those killed. There was one survivor, an 18-year-old woman who managed to crawl out of the vehicle and was found by police about 50 yards away when they arrived shortly after 4 a.m.

Signing off can isolate victim • ABUSE Continued from page A1 Simply telling a survivor to sign off these popular networks isolates them further. “When it comes down to it – [social media are] one of the biggest things that we have out there for people to communicate with each other,” said Horton, a child advocate at the county’s domestic violence agency. “You’re asking for someone to cut off a lot of their important relationships and something that gives them an outlet.” The most dangerous time for a victim of abuse is when he or she is preparing to leave or has left an abusive partner, said Cindy Southworth, from

the National Network to End Domestic Violence, on Facebook’s Safety page that announced the new guide. “It is critical that survivors have the information they need to navigate their lives safely and, in today’s digital age, a significant part of our lives are online,” Southworth said. While advocates applaud the efforts of Facebook, they say it’s important to remember that these behaviors can carry over to any social media network, email and text messages. Even maintaining a presence on these sites can open the doors to abuse in a way that advocates never have seen before. The signs of abuse are not always cuts and bruises, Horton said.

Senate Dems have votes to block delay At issue

• SHUTDOWN Continued from page A1

“We’re often associating abuse with physical abuse, and not recognizing the signs of verbal, emotional and even stalking behaviors like that,” Horton said. Behaviors such as continually sending hurtful messages, checking up on someone’s whereabouts or a barrage of comments, posts, messages, texts and emails. “That constant invasion of [one’s] personal space,” Horton explained. “[Social media are] something that feels really positive, and something that you have a lot of control over, but at the end of the day ... there is that darker side of social media that could really lead someone down a dangerous path,” she said.

Another Republican, Rep. Darrell Issa of California, reacted angrily when asked whether he would eventually support a standalone spending bill if needed to prevent a shutdown. “How dare you presume a failure? How dare you? How dare you?” he said. Apart from its impact on the health care law, the legislation that House Republicans decided to back would assure routine funding for government agencies through Dec. 15. The measure went to the Senate after House lawmakers voted 248-174 to repeal the medical tax, then 231-192 for the delay in Obamacare. The government spending measure marked something of a reduction in demands by House Republicans, who passed legislation several days ago that would permanently strip the health care law of money while providing funding for the government. It also contained significant concessions from a party that long has criticized the health care law for imposing numerous government mandates on industry, in some cases far exceeding what Republicans have been willing to support in the past. Acknowledging as much, Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., said that as a conservative he had often found during Obama’s presidency that his choice was “between something bad or [something] horrible.” GOP aides said that under the legislation, most portions of the health law that already have gone into effect would remain unchanged. That includes requirements for insurance companies to guarantee coverage for pre-existing conditions and to require children to be covered on their parents’ plans until age 26. One exception would give insurers or others the right not to provide abortion coverage, based on religious or moral objections.

The new health insurance exchanges for the Affordable Care Act are set to open Tuesday, a development that’s lent urgency to the drive to use a normally routine stopgap spending bill to gut implementation of the law.

The measure would delay implementation of a requirement for all individuals to purchase coverage or face a penalty, and of a feature of the law that creates marketplaces to shop for coverage from private insurers. By repealing the medical device tax, the GOP measure also would raise deficits – an irony for a party that won the House majority in 2010 by pledging to get the nation’s finances under control. The Senate rejected the most recent House anti-shutdown bill on a party-line vote of 54-44 Friday, insisting on a straightforward continuation in government funding without health care add-ons. That left the next step up to the House – with time to avert a shutdown growing shorter. For a moment at least, the revised House bill papered over a simmering dispute between Speaker John Boehner and the rest of the leadership, and tea party conservatives who have been more militant about abolishing the health law that all Republican lawmakers oppose. It was unclear whether members of the rank and file had consulted with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who has become the face of the “Defund Obamacare” campaign that tea party organizations are promoting and using as a fundraising tool. In the Senate, there was little doubt that Reid had the votes to block a one-year delay in the health care program. He said the same was true for the repeal of the medical device tax, even though 33 Democrats joined all Senate Republicans in supporting repeal on a nonbinding vote earlier this year.

Relief for taxpayers It seems that just about everything in Illinois works against taxpayers. Income taxes were raised just a few years ago. Property taxes are way too high and continue to increase even though property values have decreased significantly since 2009. State government spends our tax dollars as if it were Monopoly money. Taxpayers need a break. While we don’t expect to see For the record any big breaks given the current We support legislation that leadership in would make it easier on propSpringfield, small erty owners who challenge ones are at least a significant increases in their start. assessments. That’s why we support a bill filed by state Rep. Jack Franks that would require property assessors to justify any assessment increase greater than 5 percent. The legislation, filed earlier this month, puts the burden of proof on the assessor to prove why an increased property value is warranted. The number of homeowners who challenged their property assessments has skyrocketed in recent years. Under the current appeals process, it is up to the homeowner to provide evidence that the assessment should be lowered. Homeowners are required to track down recent sales data of comparable homes showing that their house has been overassessed. The comparable properties have to be of similar size, story height, quality of construction and style. “I introduced this legislation to give taxpayers a stronger voice in the assessment process because it is very clear that without their increased involvement, taxing bodies will just continue to take more,” Franks told Northwest Herald reporter Joseph Bustos. We realize that Franks’ bill won’t result in lower taxes for the vast majority of taxpayers. That only will come when local government bodies stop asking for more and start spending more wisely. We supported a Franks’ bill last year that would have prohibited local governments from seeking higher levies in years when property values declined. That bill stalled in a House committee, as it seems most taxpayer-friendly bills do. While this proposed legislation won’t lower taxes, it’s a step in the right direction.


Oil over liberty? In his second inaugural address, President Barack Obama delivered a ringing pledge of U.S. support for American ideals around the world. “We will support democracy from Asia to Africa, from the Americas to the Middle East,” he promised, “because our interests and our conscience compel us to act on behalf of those who long for freedom.” Just eight months later, the idealism is gone. In what may be the most morally crimped speech by a president in modern times, Obama explicitly ruled out the promotion of liberty as a core interest of the United States. Instead, he told the U.N. General Assembly that America’s core interests consist of resisting aggression against allies; protecting the free flow of energy; dismantling terrorist networks “that threaten our people,” and stopping the development and use of weapons of mass destruction. No president should cite democracy promotion as the United States’s only core interest or even, invariably, its first priority. But has a president ever boasted that promoting democracy will not be a core interest? To say that America cares more about the flow of oil than the rights of men and women is to diminish the U.S. soldiers and diplomats who have sacrificed to far higher purpose than Obama would acknowledge. In his speech, Obama said that America’s core interests are not “our only interests” and that the United States “will continue to promote democracy and human rights and open markets, because we believe these practices achieve peace and prosperity.” Presidents from Franklin D. Roosevelt to John F. Kennedy to Ronald Reagan have promoted these “practices” not just to “achieve peace and prosperity,” as Obama said, but because they believed deeply that every human being has an inalienable right to live in freedom and dignity and that the United States is uniquely positioned to help others achieve those rights. Obama may believe that minimizing values in foreign relations is tough-minded and realistic. In fact, it can only diminish U.S. influence. “It was not all that long ago that farmers in Venezuela and Indonesia welcomed American doctors to their villages and hung pictures of JFK on their living room walls,” Obama wrote as a presidential candidate in 2007. “We can be this America again.” He was right. We could be that America again – but not by cherishing oil over liberty. The Washington Post

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Immigration momentum To the Editor: In response to the Sept. 13 article titled “Advocates turn to Obama for action on immigration,” I find it disheartening that our Congress seems to lack the leadership to fulfill its obligations to our country. The article makes the case that if the House of Representatives fails to capitalize on the bipartisan momentum behind immigration reform, supporters may turn to the administration to take some sort of executive action on the issue. This is not a sustainable way to run a country, however, and we should not accept that our democratically elected representatives are unable to pass common-sense legislation on pressing national issues of justice. From the looming government shutdown to last week’s $39 billion cut to food aid (which will affect an estimated 170,000 veterans), our country is caught in the crossfire of bitter partisan battles and gridlock that will hurt our economy and our communities. But immigration reform is more than just a political issue. It is a biblical one. We Christians are called by our Father in heaven to treat the foreigner among us with compassion and to minister to our most vulnerable neighbors. Thankfully, evangelical leaders across the country have recog-

nized this biblical call and have joined their voices in support of immigration reform through the Evangelical Immigration Table. I pray that our U.S. Representatives – including our own Congressmen Randy Hultgren and Peter Roskam – will show the same type of leadership and have the courage to fix our broken immigration system.

April after he was just elected for another four-year term. Novak resigned within a few days after the election. Moving quickly, township officers quietly appointed longtime Trustee Marsha Nelson to take over for Novak. Prior to becoming clerk, Novak was a township trustee for 21 years. Novak became the clerk by appointment. All together, Novak was on the township payroll for 37 years. There was another appointment to fill a vacancy, and again, out of the eyes of the public, insiders appointed Jim Condon as trustee to replace Nelson. There are other township officials who were appointed officers. McHenry Township Supervisor Donna Schaefer owes her supervisor position to the township appointment system. Township Assessor Carol Perschke also benefited by appointment. She became assessor after being a longtime trustee.

Get rid of township appointments. Abolish townships.

The township ladder To the Editor: Elected township officials spurn term limits. Their concerns are personal and self-serving. Public concerns are secondary. Once in office, township officials hold that office for many years, sometimes for decades. Or, if someone becomes ill or dies, officials will move up the township ladder by appointment, to a position of increased salary and benefits. Many township officials get their foot in the door by an appointment coming from a core of insiders. Township appointment business is performed out of the public’s eyes. McHenry Township is a great example of how township government works for those feeding at the public trough. The township advantage, at its worst, would be when 16-year Clerk Bruce Novak bowed out last

Innovative teachers To the Editor: Wow! Great article by Jeff Engelhardt in Friday’s Northwest Herald (Sept. 20) about the “teenage executives” economics class at Crystal Lake South High School. It was truly refreshing to read about Jim Krol’s stimulating secondperiod class and his enthusiastic students. It’s a practical class that has promise for the students and our community. At a time when teachers are being blamed by the diverse media for the financial difficulties of our state, it is great to hear about our local, bright and innovative teachers.

Obama’s wishful thinking must feel better President Barack Obama’s speech to the United Nations General Assembly in New York was flawed, displaying a type of moral equivalency that does not exist for America’s enemies. His claim that “the world is more stable than it was five years ago” is demonstrably false. In Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Kenya, Congo, to name only a few, there are at least as many conflicts as in 2008 and far more now than when the United Nations was created. According to Themner, Lotta and Peter Wallensteen, in “Armed Conflict, 1946-2011,” Journal of Peace Research, there were fewer than 20 armed conflicts in 1946. Today, there are more than 30. The president seemed to take at face value a “fatwa,” or religious edict, issued by Iran’s supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, against the development of nuclear weapons. He said, “President Rouhani has just recently reiterated that the Islamic republic will never develop a nuclear weapon.” There are reportedly a half-dozen nuclear sites in Iran where uranium is being enriched. They are buried deep in the earth and have concrete walls several feet thick. The Iranians claim they’re developing electrical power for peaceful purposes. That’s not the profile of any power station with which I am familiar. Breaking news for the president: Our enemies lie by telling us what we want to hear while behaving duplicitously. The president barely mentioned the slaughter of 85 Pakistani Christians over the


VIEWS Cal Thomas weekend. He didn’t mention at all the Muslim war against Coptic Christians in Egypt. Why dwell on unpleasant realities when wishful thinking feels better? The president again dredged up the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, repeating the “two-state solution” formula that the Palestinians pay lip service to, while preferring a one-state solution, absent Israel. Obama seemed to again blame America for Muslim “hostility” because of U.S. involvement “in the Muslim world.” U.S. motivation for such involvement has been two-fold: strike at terrorists and reduce the threat they pose to the U.S. and its interests, and free people from political and religious oppression. One can debate whether those goals were sufficient to prompt U.S. “involvement,” but there can be no debate that America’s objectives were altruistic and rooted in selfpreservation. As an example of how political and religious differences can be resolved, the president again pointed to Northern Ireland and its many decades of internal conflict. While the Northern Ireland conflict pitted Protestants against Catholics, the central issue was loyalty to Britain vs. a united Ireland.

Religion helped fuel the fire, but it wasn’t the fire itself. Neither side claimed a divine mandate to wipe out the other. Apparently unbeknownst to the president, the peace process in Ireland embodies something the fight for peace in the Middle East does not – a willingness by all sides to cooperate. Have we seen any real offers of cooperation from Iran? Afghanistan? Egypt? The president said America has been humbled by its foreign adventures. Humility and retreat are not a policy, unless we plan to surrender to Islamists. He didn’t articulate America’s foreign policy, because he doesn’t have one. Islamic fundamentalists can only be encouraged by this speech. They include Iran’s president, Hassan Rouhani, who wants to suddenly make nice with Obama in large part to ease crushing economic sanctions. The last line of the president’s U.N. speech may have been the most fantastical of all: “...we remain convinced that this community of nations can deliver a more peaceful, prosperous and just world to the next generation.” There is no “community of nations.” There are individual nations with individual interests. If the United Nations could bring peace and prosperity to the world, progress toward that goal should have been made by now. Instead, 68 years after its founding, wars and rumors of wars are increasing.

Providers fear new day care Current facility operators: Lake in the Hills location would be unneeded By JOSEPH BUSTOS LAKE IN THE HILLS – A planned day care center on Crystal Lake Road has some area providers worried it will affect their businesses. Last week, the Village Board approved a plan by developer IRED to build a

10,000-square-foot day care for The Learning Experience at 15 Crystal Lake Road, Lake in the Hills. When plans for the project were publicized, some day care operators within a 5-mile radius were not thrilled with the idea. Developers say The Learning Experience will have a capacity for 140 children. The

center would cater to children from ages 6 weeks to 5 years old. Kim Hopkins, the executive director of the Learning Tree, which has locations in Algonquin and Huntley, said other day cares in the area have closed recently in the

The Lakemoor Village Board voted to buy 611 Route 120, a 10-acre lot that runs west from Morrison Park, for $250,000 using village reserves. The property was appraised at $255,000, said Matt Dabrowski, director of community and economic development. A closing date has not been set. Once that date has been determined, the village will make a timeline for cleaning up the property and removing overgrown brush there, he said, adding that they’re hoping to get to it this fall.

The property is made up of 3 acres of land – vacant except for a brick tower that kind of looks like a castle – and 7 acres of Lily Lake, Dabrowski said. The plan is to renovate the tower, which dates to the 1920s or 1930s, he said. The history behind the tower isn’t known, but it’s being looked into. The village also plans on continuing the walking path along Lily Lake, Village President Todd Weihofen said. The village’s comprehensive plan proposes a trail circling the entire lake.

The bridge over the north branch of Nippersink Creek is expected to reopen on or before the end of the week. The 55-year-old bridge was closed in January 2012 because of failing structural

Meeting airs health system concerns NORTHWEST HERALD CRYSTAL LAKE – An effort to enlighten residents about a deepening rift between a number of independent physicians and the Centegra Health System administration drew about 85 people Wednesday to the Crystal Lake Holiday Inn. Dr. William Dam, a former Fox Waterway Agency chairman and former Fox Lake mayor who operates the West-

lake Clinic in Ingleside, led the meeting. During a 23-slide PowerPoint presentation, Dam talked about the history and origins of Centegra, how its governance is supposed to function according to its bylaws, and how independent physicians are increasingly being denied access to information and to patients, said a news release from Dam. He said administrators should be called to task for

bylaw breaches, according to the release. For example, he said, the bylaws state “no more than one-third nor less than one-fifth of the governors shall be physicians in good standing on the medical staff of either the Centegra Hospital – McHenry or Centegra Hospital – Woodstock.” Currently, two physicians are among the 14-member Centegra Board of Governors. In 2007, by comparison, five of 15 were physicians.

The health system’s corporate bylaws also call for an annual meeting of the community corporate members the third Friday of October. Several people in attendance said they are corporate members (also referred to in the bylaws as “community governors”), and have not yet received their traditional notice to attend, according to the release. For information, call Dam at 847-989-3114 or email

Senior Airman Nick Theiss is welcomed home Saturday by the Warriors’ Watch Riders. father’s service. He enjoyed the experience so much, he wants to re-enlist. “The last tour was my fa-

vorite. I definitely made a lot of friends,” he said. “I have a year to decide, but I have a chance to re-enlist.”

“If [The Learning Experience operators] feel they could be a success, they make the decision to enter into the project.” Joseph Billitteri Owner of the property where The Learning Experience will be located are putting their children into child care centers. She said there are more people relying on relatives to take care of their children. Clark said Goddard is doing well, but not everyone has 70 percent to 75 percent occupancy. “That is not a market that lends itself to adding a similar business,” Clark said. Clark said there are times when competitors do call and do surveys, and her school would say things are going great. Goddard has 25 employees and more than 100 children in the facility, and Clark wants to keep everything stable in the school. But with more competition, all of the day cares will have to work harder. “Whatever comes our way, I feel my business will survive,” Clark said. “We opened our business where we thought we would thrive. We all will work hard. Competition makes you better in the long run. ... We’re all just going to have to work harder.”

Purchase to extend the village’s control over lake • PARK long-term plan for the lakefront. The board has discussed coming up with a project to revitalize the lakefront and assessing the possibilities of dredging the lake. The village owns about 40 percent of Lily Lake, Dabrowski said. The new purchase will extend the village’s

control over the lake, which helps with maintenance. The goal is to ultimately make the whole lake public, he said. In the meantime, the added space will help with crowded village events, Weihofen said. “When we do our Lakemoor Fest, it’s packed solid,” he said. “It’s a good place to fish and there are picnic benches. It’s a really nice, open space.”

Enlisted one year after graduating from Prairie Ridge High School

tandem celebrated the homecoming Saturday with more than 100 people who welcomed Nick Theiss home, whether it was escorting him from Woodstock to Cary on motorcycles or awaiting a celebration at his home. Theiss returned from Afghanistan three weeks ago and was stationed at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma City. He served on the primary response team during his three-country tour and is an expert marksman. Nick Theiss said he always knew he wanted to join the military, in part because of hearing stories about his

still recovering economy. “My whole feeling is, if you have a lifeboat that could fit five people, and you put 10 people on, then everyone sinks,” Hopkins said. The developers conducted a survey of similar day care facilities within a 5-mile radius and found that many facilities in the area are near capacity, and there is a need for additional day care services, according to village documents. Hopkins disputed those survey results and said it’s difficult to find a day care with 70 percent to 75 percent occupancy, which is needed for a center to hold its own and pay bills. “We’re just trying to keep our heads above water,” Hopkins said. “I want to be able to pay our bills, pay employees.” Joseph Billitteri is the owner of the property and plans to sell it so it can be developed for The Learning Experience. He said The Learning Experience has more than 100 locations and is poised to spend $2.5 million on the Crystal Lake Road location. “If they feel they could be a success, they make the decision to enter into the project,” Billitteri said. “All I know is it’s a good project, we followed the rules, and the vote went the way it should of,” he said.

The 23-year-old wasted little time joining the military, enlisting one year after graduating from Prairie Ridge High School in 2008. His father said he supported the decision and would do so again if his son decided to re-enlist, even if it brings back the stress of the unknown. “There’s just no saying how proud I am of him,” John Theiss said. “It has been amazing to see all the support [Saturday]. It’s very emotional for me.” The homecoming event was coordinated by Warriors’ Watch Riders, a troop support group that frequently provides motorcycle escorts or surprises to veterans who return home.

Bears can’t take Lions too lightly

Kyle Grillot –

Former Crystal Lake South football player Jeff Arison was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease in 2011 but stays in good spirits with help from family and friends.

‘No White Flags’ Former CLS athlete Arison won’t surrender to disease By JEFF ARNOLD


here are days when Andrea Arison wonders how her older brother manages to keep a smile on his face. She wishes that, just once, Jeff Arison would complain about the pain he feels or about how he has to depend on people more than he wants. But that’s not the life Arison chooses to live.

At 33, the former Crystal Lake South defensive tackle is confined to a motorized wheelchair, having lived with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease) since 2011. There are bad days. Days when Arison feels out of sorts and when he feels like he woke up on the wrong side of the bed. But focusing on the bad days, Arison says, does no one – himself included – any good. “There’s two choices: You can either feel sorry for yourself and have a pity party or you can do something about it,” Arison said. “I think I’m where I am today because I have been so positive.” Outside of the wheelchair that gets him around, Arison remains the same person he’s always been. He’s in the middle of managing

“He handles every day with grace and dignity and humor. Where a lot of us would want to throw our hands up and complain, he never complains.” Andrea Arison Sister of Jeff Arison through a baseball season on the video game “MLB: The Show”. He oversees five fantasy football teams. He watches plenty of baseball, tracking his beloved Tampa Bay Rays thanks to the MLB Extra Innings TV package. But there are times when living with ALS gets to Arison. Like when he needs help getting out of bed, getting dressed or finishing a meal on his own. It’s then when sister Andrea, 13 months younger than Jeff, wonders how he holds everything together. “He handles every day with grace and dignity and humor,” Andrea said. “Where a lot of us would want to throw our hands up and complain, he never complains.” ••• Jeff Arison still isn’t used to the minivan. He misses the Nissan Tundra he drove

around St. Petersburg, Fla., where he lived for 10 years, working 60 to 70 hours a week as a restaurant manager at Dan Marino’s and the Green Iguana. He loved his truck, which seemed to fit perfectly into his larger-than-life personality. But as his health started to fail him, Arison’s mode of transportation changed. First to a car, then to the red minivan that’s parked in his mother’s driveway, complete with Cubs and Rays window stickers and the handicapped parking tag that hangs from the rearview mirror. Part of the worst part of living with ALS, Arison says, is remembering specific dates. Like Dec. 24, 2011 – the day Arison learned he would no longer be able to drive. But ask Arison what he remembers about Oct. 12, 2011, the day a group of doctors walked into a room at the Mayo Clinic and told him he had ALS, and things aren’t nearly as clear. ALS is a disease that causes muscle atrophy and eventually leads to difficulty speaking, swallowing and breathing. There is no known cure. “It was like Snoopy’s teacher was talking to me,” Arison says, adding the sound effects anyone who has seen Charlie Brown cartoons immediately recognizes. Until that fall day two years ago, Arison wouldn’t allow himself to consider other options.

At 3-0, the Bears have control of the NFC North, have had their way with the Lions for the most part in recent years, and the week after the Lions they return to Soldier Field for what could prove to be their toughest test of the season, a potential battle of the undefeated with the New Orleans Saints. The Bears’ trip to Detroit on Sunday has all the ingredients of the classic NFL trap game. Matt Stafford More Bears is a Pro Bowl quarterback For a breakdown who, after a poor of Sunday’s game 2012, is playing against the Lions at a high level and much more, again. His 99.9 read Bears Gamepasser rating is day. PAGES 6-7C 5.5 points better than Jay Cutler’s. Both have six touchdown passes, and Stafford has thrown two interceptions, while Cutler has thrown three. Cutler has been slightly more accurate at a 67.3 percent completion rate to Stafford’s 63.6, but the big difference is production. Stafford has thrown for more than 100 yards a game more than Cutler with 1,020 passing yards to Cutler’s 693. Stafford is averaging 1.5 yards a pass more than Cutler, and Cutler has completed passes to just five different receivers, while Stafford has found 11. The Lions offense’s multiple weapons make them much tougher to defend than the Bears’. Of course, Calvin Johnson is the man you fear the most, and he’s off to a nice start with 17 catches for 268 yards and three touchdowns. But he’s missed on 13 of the 30 balls Stafford’s targeted him with. Nate Burleson actually has two more catches than Megatron with 19 for 239 yards, but he’ll be out after breaking his arm in a single-car accident Tuesday. Still, there are those nine other targets, including wide receiver Ryan Broyles and tight end Brandon Pettigrew, both back from serious knee injuries that ended their 2012 seasons, and rookie Joseph Fauria, who already has two touchdowns backing up Pettigrew.

Bahl-Olson connection lifts ’Canes By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO ELMHURST – Marian Central quarterback Billy Bahl scanned IC Catholic’s defense in search of an open receiver. With the Hurricanes trailing 3-0 in the first quarter after a fumble on their second play of the game, Bahl found senior wide receiver Brett Olson for a 10-yard touchdown to give Marian the lead. It was a connection that worked all game for Marian, ranked No. 10 in Class 5A. The Hurricanes wouldn’t relinquish the lead. Bahl threw for 328 yards and four touchdowns, including two to Olson, who hauled in nine passes for 184 yards to lead

Message and data rates apply. the Hurricanes to a 49-17 Suburban Christian Conference crossover win against IC. A focused week of practice after Marian’s loss to Marmion helped the Hurricanes (4-1 overall, 2-1 SCC Blue) avoid another setback. “This week we wanted to come out here and make a statement after the miserable, embarrassing loss last week,” Bahl said. “We came out here and wanted to punch them in

the mouth, put up a whole bunch of points on the board and get a win.” The Knights (3-2, 2-1 SCC Gold) grabbed a 3-0 lead with 7:26 remaining in the first quarter, but those would be the last points they would score until a touchdown with 1:02 left until halftime. By then, the Bahl-Olson connection had done its damage. Less than two minutes after taking a 7-3 lead, Bahl found a wide open Olson for a 44-yard touchdown with 22 seconds remaining in the first quarter. Olson recorded 113 of his 184 receiving yards in the first half, part of a performance that Marian coach Ed Brucker called “one of his better games.”

group of college athletes settled their lawsuit with EA Sports and the Collegiate Licensing Company this week regarding how the athletes’ likenesses are used in video games and broadcasts. Sports editor Jon Styf and columnist Tom Musick discuss:

Musick: I’ve never been very good at video games. And I’m learning quickly that I’m not very good at deciphering legal settlements regarding college athletes and video games. Can you help me out? What is important to know here? Styf: EA won’t produce its NCAA Football game again and the company will pay $40 million out, as my former college newspaper co-worker Steve Eder (He clearly was a better student than I was) reported Friday in the New York Times. Every fall, when the game comes out, third-stringers like Minnesota freshman (still might redshirt) Chris Streveler could buy the game, find their number (names weren’t included) and play a video game as themselves. Now, that’s over. And, skeptically, I think the trickle-down of that settlement will be minimal. It looks like a large number, but divide it by anyone ever depicted in the game and you won’t come up with a large number. Musick: So is this a win for college athletes? This is what they wanted, right? Styf: No. Of course not. The win comes when they actually get compensated for all the money made off them. For now, all that happens is the video game is taken away and they can read about some money, located somewhere, divided somehow. Musick: That’s the thing about college football (and college basketball, for that matter). It’s such a moneymaker for schools, for coaches, for networks, for merchandising companies, and all the while, the athletes playing the games do not get so much as a stipend. I know that scholarships are valuable, and that’s great, but Urban Meyer, Nick Saban, Brian Kelly and the rest of those types do not recruit kids to study biology. They recruit them to play football and win games and help (insert coach’s name here) negotiate his next megadeal. Styf: The best part is that the scholarships aren’t guaranteed, beyond one year, but the coaches’ contracts are. When they get fired, they get a huge pay day. When a football player doesn’t perform well enough, he can be kicked to the curb. Musick: So maybe the college athletes see this settlement as a step in the right direction, even if it accomplishes nothing other than removing the experience of seeing their likeness on a video game. More than a few athletes have started wearing “APU” on their gear as part of an All Players United movement. Again, I doubt this accomplishes much, but at least they’re being more vocal about the hypocrisy of the system. Styf: The problem is that there isn’t a clean fix. It’s an issue that’s been building for years, as college sports have evolved. And it’s been the same thing as Illinois politicians kicking the can down the road on pension reform. Eventually, it will blow up in your face. I think we’re seeing that right now. And it will only get worse before it gets better.

Former Dundee-Crown baseball standout Ryan Court filled out his share of change of address forms this season. After beginning the year with the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Midwest League affiliate in South Bend, Ind., the corner infielder made the move to the D-Backs’ Advanced-A California League team in Visalia before finishing the year at Double-A Mobile. Now, within reach of seeing his major league dreams realized, the 2011 23rd round draft pick will spend the offseason working for a big league spring training invite while picking up some substitute teaching jobs after completing his education degree from Illinois State last year.

One of the hardest things about the minor leagues is that, even if you’ve been playing great, if there’s a guy in front of you at the same position playing well, you might not get that call. I think a lot of things depend on injuries and those kind of things and all the different factors that play in. But I think you just have to control the things you can control. I think sometimes, guys get themselves in a hole when they’re thinking too much about what other guys are doing or why they’re not moving (to the next level) and what else they need to do. You just have to play as well as you can, live in the moment and hope the chips fall.

I think one of the things that helped me this year was just enjoying my teammates, enjoying what you’re doing and enjoying where you’re at. If you’re playing well, you might as well enjoy it. There’s no point in being upset if you’re playing well and you’re not moving. It’s like, ‘I’m playing well, let’s have fun with this.’ I think that’s the only way you can really handle it. I think you just need to stick to your routine no matter where you’re at. I think it’s crazy how much I moved this year. I’m not sure I anticipated the moves so it was one of those things where I was just doing what I do everyday. Then, I got the call (to go to Mobile) and it was exciting because I wasn’t expecting it.

I want to build off of last season and take that into spring training and I’m just going to run from there. There’s no limit and I think I’ve proved that I’ve improved every year and I think I’ll go into the year with the confidence that my ultimate goal is to make the Major Leagues and if I don’t then I tried as hard as I could and gave it everything i had. They call it the ‘white moments’ when you don’t even think, you’re just doing it. Baseball is a hard game because there’s so many games and everyone goes through a slump in a season – you’re not going to go through an entire season without slumping once so I think, when you’re going hot and you have a bad moment, you just have to accept that. It doesn’t mean you’re a bad hitter, it doesn’t mean you have to change everything. You just have to ride that through and build your confidence and do what you do. That’s easier to say than do, but you can’t let one slump turn into your whole season.

I really enjoyed my student teaching. I had fun with the kids. I think humor is a great part of education if you can bring humor into the classroom and I think you engage (students) more. But I think it’s good to switch it up. You get to the end of the year after a long season, it’s not that you’re sick of baseball or you don’t like baseball, but you just need a change because you’ve been doing the same thing for so long. So it will be nice just to get my mind off baseball and not have my mind revolve around it. Then, you’ll get that itch to get it going again.

Reiser passed at finish McHenry junior 2nd in boys race By JOE STEVENSON PALATINE – McHenry junior Jesse Reiser will chalk up his first defeat of the cross country season as a valuable learning experience. Reiser knows he can run with the state’s best, but next time he likely will deploy different tactics. Reiser felt he went out a bit too fast Jesse at Saturday’s Reiser Palatine Invitational, one of the state’s most prestigious meets. Although Reiser led most of the way, York’s Alex Bashqawi and Nathan Mroz chased him for the last mile. Eventually, Bashqawi passed Reiser to win in 14:43.1 at Deer Grove East Forest Preserve. Reiser was right behind in 14:44.9, with Mroz at 14:45.5. “I went out hard like I usually do in every race, and York kind of started picking on me in the last mile,” Reiser said. “I didn’t have much left because I went out a little harder than I was supposed to.” Reiser’s previous closest race was a win of more than seven seconds at the Wauconda Invitational. He knew Palatine would provide his most challenging race. Bashqawi and Mroz cut the lead from 20 meters to a couple of steps into the last mile and the three stayed together to the finish. Reiser said it was hard not to go out like he normally does. “I want to go out there and put all the guts I have in it and finish as hard as I can,” he said. “I’m glad I got my place, but I’m a competitor and want to go out and do the best I can. It didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to, but I’m still happy with [the race].” York put three runners in the top six and won the meet with 49 points. Bashqawi said it helped having Mroz with him to chase down Reiser. “We know how [each other] can perform because we practice together every day,” Bashqawi said. “So we feel confident we can stay with each other. I wasn’t sure if we were going to catch [Reiser] or not. I wasn’t sure if he’d maintain his pace.” McHenry coach Beth Czubik thought Reiser ran another quality race and will be able to learn from it. “Just race smart and have that mentality from the getgo,” Czubik said. “He hasn’t had a lot of competition so far. It was good to have people push him. We’ll just take little bits and pieces and put them all together for the end.” Crystal Lake Central finished 12th and McHenry was 16th in the boys race. Central’s Ryan Pitner finished 17th, and McHenry sophomore Michael Hahndorf was 24th. McHenry’s Lauren Opatrny took fifth in the girls race in 17:54.1. Cary-Grove finished 11th as a team, led by Morgan Schulz’s 14th-place finish. Crystal Lake Central was 12th as a team, led by Maddie Dagley (31st) and Mary Fleming (33rd). Opatrny started her season with a nagging pain in her hip, but apparently has put that behind her with another strong run. “I was expecting top 10, I really wanted to squeeze in there because last year I was 11th,” Opatrny said. “This is a lot better. I didn’t know where I’d be [in shape] right now and there’s so many talented girls here. I’m so happy I stuck with them.”

Cashmore makes right calls for A-H By PATRICK MASON HEBRON – Alden-Hebron coach John Lalor has been working with first-year starting quarterback Colten Cashmore throughout the season, helping the sophomore take crucial steps to develop into a leader for the offense. With each passing week, Lalor gives Cashmore more pre-snap freedom to change the play, or the direction of the play, at the line. That trend continued during Saturday’s 54-27 Northeastern Athletic Conference win over Westminster Christian. “Little by little,” Lalor said of Cashmore’s progression. “I’m trying to give him a little more [control] over the offense. He can make some changes.” In order to prepare for games knowing he will be asked to do more and more each week, Cashmore brings home the game film for the current week’s opponent and spends three or four days watching, studying and taking notes about the opposing defense. He spends about an hour each night and ends up with pages of notes when he’s done. The quarterback thinks of it like a little extra homework, but he doesn’t mind doing it. He also said he will watch the

Alden-Hebron sophomore Nate Peterson runs for a first down in the first quarter Saturday against Westminster Christian in Hebron. Alden-Hebron won, 54-27. opponent’s offensive unit in hopes of learning something from watching different quarterbacks. “It’s what comes from the position,” he said. “I try to get two different games on the team so I can get a better idea.

I like to find the weak spots in the defense’s zones, and it’s what I’m thinking about every time I drop back to pass.” On the Giants’ first offensive possession, Cashmore found a matchup he liked and connected with wide receiver

Austin Stauss for a 17-yard touchdown. And although Cashmore was prepared to pick apart the Westminster defense with his arm, he didn’t need to as the rushing attack picked up big gains nearly every time a run was called.

The Giants (3-2 overall, 3-2 NAC) totaled 271 yards on the ground on 29 carries as Nick Beck led the way with 81 yards and three touchdowns on just five carries. Whatever the Warriors (05, 0-5) tried on defense to stop the run, it didn’t work. A-H scored touchdowns on seven of its first nine offensive possessions. Cashmore, despite finishing with 46 yards through the air on 3 of 6 passing, had a large role in the run game. He changed a few plays at the line, including Beck’s 11yard touchdown run early in the second quarter. The play was supposed to be a sweep to the outside, but Cashmore saw something he remembered on film and switched the play to a dive, and Beck was able to scamper in untouched. “It was nice to see him make some smart audibles,” said Beck, a senior. “It worked out to be pretty good. It’s pretty new for him, and he did a pretty good job today.” For Cashmore, he hopes he can continue to grow and help out the team through his play and by making more pre-snap calls like he did throughout Saturday’s win. “I think it gives coach John and the team a little more confidence in me,” Cashmore said, “and it opens up a whole new game for us.”

Ex-NFL player Gleason, also with ALS, inspires Arison • ARISON Continued from page C1 It started in his left foot. Out of the blue, Arison, then 31, could no longer lift his left ankle high enough to manage another step. His left leg would go limp. By that point, he had moved back to Crystal Lake, admitting that something wasn’t right with his health. A doctor at a local walk-in clinic told Arison he likely had a pinched nerve and prescribed a combination of ice and ibuprofen. When Arison fell on his way to work, he consulted another doctor, who suggested Arison see a neurologist. When the neurologist told Arison he wanted to run a biopsy, Arison decided to get a second opinion. He ended up at Chicago’s Loyola University Medical Center, where he underwent a gamut of blood tests and a electromyogram test. When the results came back inconclusive, the specialist suggested Arison make a trip to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. Arison wanted to believe he still had a pinched nerve. He refused to consider other options, staying away from Google, which he feared would bring out the truth. “I just didn’t want anything to do with it,” he said. “I was just looking for the pill that would make be better.” After four days at the Mayo Clinic, Arison knew something wasn’t right. That’s when doctors informed Arison he was one of the 5,600 people diagnosed with ALS each year in the United States. And that’s when the “Snoopy teacher” voices started. “I didn’t even hear what they said,” Arison said. ••• The day Arison couldn’t

Former Crystal Lake South football player Jeff Arison (above) received an email from former NFL player Steve Gleason, who also has ALS. stand on his own is when ALS got real. The condition that started in his left foot moved to his right. Arison soon needed a cane to walk. Six months after that, his conditioned worsened to the point where he needed a wheelchair to get around. Another six months passed before he transitioned into the motorized wheelchair he uses now. Slowly, the man Andrea Arison calls “Mr. Independent” was having to depend on others more than he wanted. Suddenly, routine daily tasks required help. “It’s almost like you lose your dignity,” he said. Andrea, who lived with Jeff in Florida and who now travels back and forth for regular visits, could tell that ALS was starting to take its toll. On the surface, Jeff remained gregarious. Deep down, Andrea knew, he was struggling. “I see that as one of the biggest hardships for him,” Andrea said, “just having to depend on other people.” Suddenly, the former athlete who had picked up golf

Hurricanes’ Lee runs for 136 yards, 3 TDs • MARIAN Continued from page C1 “We wanted to show a lot more emotion, come out and play a lot more physical,” Olson said. “It was a tough loss last week and we just needed to get back on track, try to get back to what we were doing.” The Hurricanes were content with taking what IC’s defense gave them, which allowed Bahl to complete 20 of 32 passes to complement his four touchdowns and an interception. Senior running back

Ephraim Lee helped Marian have a balanced attack, rushing for 136 yards on 26 carries with three touchdowns. His 2-yard run put Marian ahead by 18 points midway through the second quarter, and Bahl’s 21-yard touchdown pass to Tom Klinger with 3:48 remaining until halftime gave the Hurricanes a comfortable 28-3 lead. “I thought we responded well,” Brucker said. “Obviously, our passing game was good today against them. Our running game was pretty good, but I’d like to see it better than what it was today.”

after high school, who had played intramural basketball and beer league softball, was forced to adjust to living with a disease few of his friends even understood. Arison had seen a story on TV about former New Orleans Saints safety Steve Gleason, who, like Arison, was diagnosed with ALS in 2011. Gleason, a former undrafted free agent, had spent eight years in the NFL, first with the Colts and the Saints before retiring in 2008. Looking for an outlet, Arison emailed Gleason, trying to understand the road he faced ahead. Two months later, Gleason wrote back. The email started this way: Jeff … Sounds like we’re in this journey together. In 207 words, Gleason conveyed how difficult life had been since he was diagnosed with ALS, a disease he called “brutal” and “terrible.” “I have moments where I look at myself and see myself as if I’m in some tragic movie or living someone else’s life,” Gleason wrote. “I don’t often have moments where I’m not thinking about how this

happened, how to heal, or how this can be real.” Over the course of the email, Gleason encouraged Arison to live in the moment, suggesting he focus on the things he can do rather than the things he can’t. The message, Arison knew, was a road map for how to handle the manner in which he lives. At the end, Gleason signed the email with the words “No White Flags”. That’s the life Arison wanted. ••• Over the past two years, ALS’s progression in Arison’s case has plateaued. For a year now, the 6-foot-1, 350-pound Arison, who worked as a bouncer and who “held his own more than a few times” as a student at the University of South Florida, has maintained his weight. It’s a sign, his doctors tell him, that he is managing living with ALS the best he can. Outside of check-ups he has every three months at Chicago’s Northwest Memorial Hospital, Arison maintains as much of a normal existence as he can. He is convinced that a cure for ALS is coming and that his time in a wheelchair is only temporary. He’s long moved past the illusion of his 20s that he is invincible and that nothing can take him down. Ask him what he’s learned about himself over the past two years and he doesn’t take much time to respond. “I’m a tough [SOB], I’m a good guy and people care about me,” Arison said. Arison concedes there are days when he needs help. But, like he did immediately after he was diagnosed, he asks that people treat him like they always have. Six days out of seven are good days: days when the sun is shining, when he’s able to get out and

do things, days when he can take in a Cubs or Rays game on TV. His support team – made up of his mother, three sisters and a host of friends from Crystal Lake and Florida – keep him going. Like Jeff, Arison’s family has become accustomed to the life they live. Andrea says when people stare at Jeff in his wheelchair in public, she feels like screaming that he’s living with ALS. But that’s when she realizes it doesn’t do anyone any good. And as she has learned from Jeff, she focuses on the positives. “My mom kind of jokes that we all have [ALS] because it’s our life and it’s the life we’re all blessed to have,” Andrea says. “We’re blessed to all be here, and we’re all blessed to be with one another. The best part is that [Jeff] is still himself.” Arison has seen to that, relying on humor to keep things in perspective. The only difference? “I just sit a little lower now,” he jokes. Arison depends heavily on social media, FaceTime and text messages to communicate with his friends, amazed by the way people have rallied around him. He learns lessons every day: to live in the moment, to appreciate each day for what it is and to take nothing for granted. Each day, Andrea receives messages telling her how much Jeff has inspired others. “I think everyone takes things for granted until they’re faced with something like this. You don’t realize what you’ve got until it’s gone,” Arison said. “You have to count your blessings and know something can be taken away as quickly as it was given.” No white flags.

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III looks Ndamukong Suh closes in during the first half Sept. 22 in Land

Bears at NOON SUNDAY, Fox,

H. Rick Bamman -

The Bears’ Jon Bostic watches fourth-quarter action from the sideline during a preseason game Aug. 15 against the Chargers at Soldier Field.

No rush for Bostic, Greene as they bide their time BEARS INSIDER Kevin Fishbain Jon Bostic and Khaseem Greene entered the NFL together at the same position with the same team. They take extra reps after practice together and, on gamedays, they take a lap around the field a couple of hours before kickoff. “I think it was before the preseason game, I saw him taking a lap. I’m like ‘all right, let me add that to my [routine],’ so I started running with him and next thing we know, we do it every game,” Greene said. From when they were drafted through the preseason, Bostic and Greene – especially Bostic – received plenty of media attention and then playing time. Since the season has started, though, neither has played a single defensive snap, and they’re keeping each other company as the future Bears linebackers. “It’s pretty simple. We both came in as rookies, came in as linebackers. We pretty much just do everything together,” Greene said. The two first met at the scouting combine in Indianapolis and roomed together in a hotel when first arriving in Chicago. In the preseason opener, Bostic returned an interception for a touchdown and Greene led the team with five tackles, including one for a loss. They exploded on the scene in August, but don’t have to rush their development in the fall with veterans D.J. Williams and James Anderson ahead of them, so they can learn the ropes together. “We hang out a lot. It helps us with football as well as developing a friendship with one another,” Bostic said. “He knows when I’m out there, there may be one thing I may not remember and he remembers. … You start

Lions following Bears’ script? 1. Almost anyone who follows the NFL knows the Bears have four new starters on the O-line, but did you know the Lions very quietly have added three, and they’re playing as well as or better than the Bears? The Lions have replaced Jeff Backus at left tackle and Gosder Cherilus at right tackle with 2012 first-round choice Riley Reiff and 2010 fourth-round choice Jason Fox, and third-round rookie Larry Warford has stepped in for Stephen Peterman at right guard. As well as Kyle Long has played so far, it will be interesting to see if he’s the best rookie right guard on the field this Sunday. 2. Many are trying to paint Bears against Lions as one of the more heated rivalries in the league today with Lions players in particular doing a lot of talking this week. Calvin Johnson said Thursday he can’t stand the Bears. But what kind of a rivalry is it with Bears winning nine of the past 10? 3. The Bears simply have to find more weapons for Cutler. But the backup tight ends scare no one, Eric Weems isn’t the answer and Marquess Wilson and Michael Ford haven’t dressed. Keep a close eye on Joe Anderson on Sunday.

The Bears' Khaseem Greene tackles the Cincinnati Bengals' Adam Jones on a punt return Sept. 8 at Soldier Field. Greene has yet to play a defensive snap this season. to learn how each other is and helping our game because we’re growing together.” They understand the importance of the linebacker position in Chicago, but avoid

thinking about the fact that they’re next. “We never think about that. We definitely don’t talk about it,” Greene said. “Knowing this team in particular is tradition-

ally known for having great linebackers. With us being young guys and being draft picks, everybody might see us going into that role in the future. “Right now, all we can worry about is knowing our assignments in case somebody goes down and knowing special teams inside and out. … We both know that there’s a tradition of great linebackers playing here, it’s a privilege for us to be here. It’s special.” The future almost came sooner for Bostic, who started at middle linebacker throughout the preseason, but now cameras don’t swarm him after practice, something he said he doesn’t notice. “One thing I really learned about [Bostic] is that he’s down to earth, a humble dude,” Greene said. “Some guys get drafted high and some guys get a little of the spotlight. When he tells you that [the media] doesn’t bother him, none of those things really bother him. … It’s good to see how guys can be humble in success.” Bostic has noticed a similar quality about Greene during their extensive time together. “You see most guys, if they win some of the awards he won, Defensive Player of the Year for the Big East two years in a row, their head is up here,” Bostic said, pointing to the sky. “For [Greene] to come in and still work like he’s a guy trying to make the team, it blows my mind sometimes.” They don’t know everything about each other, though. When Greene joked that hundreds of his Twitter followers tweet at him asking to get Bostic on Twitter, the second-round pick interrupted. “I just got on yesterday,” he said. “I didn’t even know he was on!” Greene responded. Maybe Twitter will be Sunday’s topic of conversation when the Bears’ linebackers in waiting take their pregame lap.

ST. LOUIS – Edwin Jackson would like to throw 2013 out, please, and prove he’s worth it to the Cubs for the next three years. Jackson leads the majors with 18 losses after making an early exit due to mild side discomfort in a 6-2 setback to the NL Central champion St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday. Jackson (8-18) was tagged for six runs on eight hits in 2⅔ innings and finished with a 4.98 ERA. He said tightness kept him from full extension on his pitches. White Sox 6, Royals 5: At Chicago, Adam Dunn and Conor Gillaspie each hit two-run homers and the White Sox earned a victory over Kansas City. After the game, the Sox announced they had fired hitting coach Jeff Manto. Marcus Semien and Jordan Danks added solo homers for the White Sox, while Mike Moustakas, Billy Butler and Salvador Perez went deep for the Royals. Pirates 8, Reds 3: At Cincinnati, the postseason will start at PNC Park. Neil Walker hit two of Pittsburgh’s six homers – its biggest power surge in six years – and the Pirates clinched home-field advantage for the NL’s wild card playoff game by beat the Cincinnati Reds. Indians 5, Twins 1: At Minneapolis, the playoff scenario for Cleveland is simple: win Sunday and they are in. The Indians moved into sole possession of the AL wild-card lead on the nextto-last scheduled day of the regular season, beating Minnesota behind Scott Kazmir’s strong start to extend their winning streak to nine.

Unpredictable Illinois blows out Miami (Ohio) By STEVE GREENBERG Chicago Sun-Times CHAMPAIGN – They played this one to the end, a 5014 Illinois victory, because, as it turns out, those are the rules. But it certainly was over by halftime, when the Illini (3-1) led Miami (Ohio) 36-0. It was a done deal even sooner than that, come to think of it. Early in the second quarter, quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase found tight end Evan Wilson for a leaping touchdown grab that gave the Illini a 13-0 lead. That’s when coach Tim Beckman and his staff injected some extra fun into the game, as they’ve done often this season. A two-point conversion pass from holder Tim Russell to tight end Jon Davis made it 15-0. Next came an onside kick that was successfully recovered by tight end Matt LaCosse. “That’s what we do,” Beck-

Four plays and 1:33 after the surprise move, the score was 22-0 and the RedHawks (0-4), owners of the worst offense in the FBS ranks, were in a bot-

tomless hole. Miami coach Don Treadwell spoke afterward of the Illini’s “great athletes across the board,” and that’s an easy thing to say after a 36-point loss. Not necessarily accurate,

but easy. Were the RedHawks outmanned? Sure they were. More than that, though, they were outplanned by a Beckman-led coaching staff that continues to perform far above expectations. “This has been unbelievable,” first-year offensive coordinator Bill Cubit said of his overall experience beginning with the Aug. 31 opener. The oft-criticized Beckman doesn’t get enough credit for the hiring of Cubit, who in turn is getting perhaps too much credit for the Illini’s early-season success. Cubit has three DVDs’ worth of trick plays, according to Beckman, but he isn’t the only coach on the staff with an itch to switch from the conventional. The coach who stayed in Beckman’s ear to try an onside kick? Al Seamonson, who’s in charge of – go figure – the linebackers. The coaches are feeling it at

3-1 – already one more victory than the Illini had last season – and, of course, the players are too. “We know we’re a good team,” said linebacker Mason Monheim. “We’re a damn good team.” They looked every bit of it throughout an absurdly one-sided first half. Scheelhaase bounced back from a difficult outing against Washington with 256 yards and five touchdowns in the opening 30 minutes – and it would’ve been six TDs if Ryan Lankford hadn’t dropped one in the end zone, leading to a missed field goal. Illinois’ 394 yards was its most in a first half in 30 years. The defense, not to be ignored, was pitching a shutout. Again: It was over. It was time for Illini fans to let their minds drift to what’s yet to come. The obvious question: Will

this surprisingly good-looking team fall apart once Big Ten play begins next weekend at Nebraska? The Illini have a 14-game Big Ten losing streak. They’ve still yet to climb a single step out of the league basement. You’re better off remaining skeptical. But it isn’t naïve to wonder if Beckman’s second team is capable of winning a few league games and even reaching a lower-tier bowl game. Naïve is thinking the Big Ten is too big, strong and bad to allow such a thing to happen. And foolish is denying what’s right under our noses: The Illini are much better than they were this time last year. Which means this season won’t be “over” any time soon.

Miller, Ohio St. hold on

Georgia outlasts LSU

By RALPH D. RUSSO The Associated Press COLUMBUS, Ohio – Braxton Miller threw a career-high four touchdown passes in his first game in three weeks and No. 4 Ohio State ran the nation’s longest winning streak to 17 games with a 31-24 victory over No. 23 Wisconsin on Saturday night. Miller was back after missing the last two games with a sprained left knee and didn’t show the slightest bit of rust. The junior threw three touchdown passes in the first half, including a 40-yarder to Corey Brown with 1 second left that put Ohio State (5-0, 1-0 Big Ten) up, 24-14. Joel Stave and Jared Abbrederis kept the Badgers (3-2, 1-1) in it. Stave threw for 295 yards and two TDs. Abbrederis caught 10 passes for a career-best 207 yards and a score. James White ran 17 yards for a touchdown with 13:47 left in the fourth quarter to cut Ohio State’s lead to 31-21. Iowa 23, Minnesota 7: At Minneapolis, Jake Rudock threw for one touchdown and ran for another and Iowa beat Minnesota on both sides of the ball. Mark Weisman rushed for 147 yards on 24 carries, and Mike Meyer made three of his four field goal attempts to help the Hawkeyes (4-1, 1-0) start the Big Ten with a bang. After losing their opener to Northern Illinois, they’ve outscored their last two opponents 82-10. Senior linebackers Christian Kirksey, James Morris and Anthony Hitchens led a stifling effort on defense, including interceptions by Kirksey and Morris of Minnesota quarterback Philip Nelson. Nelson hadn’t played in two weeks because of an injury, but he started ahead of Mitch Leidner for the Gophers (4-1, 0-1).


No. 10 Texas A&M 45, Arkansas 33: At Fayetteville, Ark.,

ATHENS, Ga. – Aaron Murray threw four touchdown passes, including a 25-yarder to Justin Scott-Wesley with 1:47 remaining, and No. 9 Georgia rallied to beat No. 6 LSU, 44-41, in a thrilling game between Southeastern Conference powerhouses Saturday afternoon. The Bulldogs (3-1, 2-0) completed their opening-month run through a gauntlet of top-10 teams with a victory that propelled them back into the thick of the national championship race.

Johnny Manziel accounted for 320 total yards of offense and threw two touchdown passes to Mike Evans as No. 10 Texas A&M pulled away.

Northern Illinois wide receiver Tommylee Lewis returns the opening kickoff of the second half for a touchdown Saturday in the Huskies’ 55-24 victory over Purdue in West Lafayette, Ind.


Huskies stomp Purdue By STEVE NITZ WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – After last week’s win over Eastern Illinois, Northern Illinois safety Jimmie Ward said his team needed to “start the fight.” Despite starting the season unbeaten, NIU has been plagued by slow starts. That wasn’t the case Saturday afternoon, as the Huskies lit up the Ross-Ade Stadium scoreboard in a 55-24 win. NIU’s 31-point win tied a Mid-American Conference record for margin of victory over a Big Ten school. “That was our mantra all week, wasn’t it Jimmie? We need to start it,” NIU coach Rod Carey said after the win, looking over at Ward during a postgame news conference. “We need to start it every week. And then we’ve got to finish it. It was a big key to the game.” It was Ward who had a key 62-yard interception return

in the second half that put NIU up 41-10, and in the process cleared out the Purdue student section. Saturday’s victory was the most lopsided win for NIU against a Big Ten team, and it marked the first time a MAC team has beaten two Big Ten teams in the regular season. NIU beat Iowa, 30-27, on Aug. 31. This is also the first time since 2003 the Huskies have started a season 4-0, and swept their nonconference schedule. The Huskies beat the Boilermakers with the pass, as Lynch was 18 of 25 through the air for 207 yards and three touchdowns. He also had a 7-yard rushing touchdown. Tommylee Lewis got the Huskies’ first special teams touchdown of the season, taking the opening kickoff of the second half 99 yards for a score to put NIU up by 24 points. “It definitely set the tone. All the credit goes to the

10 guys, they made all the blocks,” Lewis said. “... It was definitely important to get a spark for the half.” Ward’s interception return was the Huskies’ first defensive touchdown of the season after the defense didn’t get into the end zone in all of 2012. Ward came close to stepping out of bounds, but the play stood after being reviewed. NIU forced five Purdue turnovers, and Boilermakers quarterback Rob Henry was pulled from the game at the end of the first half after a fumble and two interceptions, one in the red zone. He was replaced by true freshman Danny Etling, who gave the Boilermakers a little spark, throwing two touchdown passes, but it was too little, too late. NIU begins MAC play next week, where the Huskies will look to move to 5-0 at Kent State, the team they defeated in last year’s MAC Championship.

sa, Ala., T.J. Yeldon rushed for 121 yards, Kenyan Drake gained 99 and a dominating defense powered No. 1 Alabama to a victory. Yeldon scored on a 68yard run and Drake added a 50-yard scamper to revive a struggling running game for the Crimson Tide (4-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference), which outgained the Rebels 434-205.

Turnovers doom No. 22 Notre Dame By LaMOND POPE Chicago Sun-Times SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Oklahoma linebacker Eric Striker came around the right side completely untouched and clobbered Notre Dame quarterback Tommy Rees from behind. The ball floated in the air and right in the hands of Oklahoma’s Corey Nelson. The linebacker returned the interception 24 yards for a touchdown. And that was just Notre Dame’s third play from scrimmage. The No. 14 Sooners intercepted Rees three times on the way to defeating the No.

22 Irish, 35-21, in front of 80,795 fans Saturday at Notre Dame Stadium. “I’m disappointed with how I played individually,” said Rees, who was 9 of 24 for 104 yards. “You’ve got to be better. You can’t turn the ball over and expect to win games against good teams like Oklahoma.” Notre Dame (3-2) fell behind 14 points, but got within six early in the fourth quarter. Oklahoma wide receiver Sterling Shepard put the game away, turning a short completion into a 54-yard touchdown. The loss puts a dent in Notre Dame’s chances of going to a BCS bowl.

“Don’t really care about that stuff,” Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said. “That’s for you guys (reporters) to talk about. I’ve got a football team here we’re trying to develop and work with. You guys can have your own comments and decide what that means (in terms of a bowl) and you can put us in whatever bowl you want. “We’re dealing with our players. We’ve got to coach better, we’ve got to develop our players better.” Turnovers made the difference. Rees entered the game with just two interceptions this season. He had two in his first three pass attempts

against the Sooners (4-0). Oklahoma linebacker Frank Shannon followed Nelson’s interception with one of his own the next possession. Oklahoma needed four plays to increase its lead. Damian Williams scored on an 11-yard run, making it 14-0 with 12:15 left in the first quarter. “You can’t spot a team 14 points like that right off the bat,” Rees said. “It’s tough to fight back, but I’m proud of the way we did. The start hurt us in the long run.”

Biffle refuses to count himself out By DAN GELSTON The Associated Press DOVER, Del. – Matt Kenseth has Chase perfection. Kyle Busch nailed the runner-up finishes. And no driver can touch the championship pedigree of Jimmie Johnson. Led by Kenseth, the top three drivers in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship standings have started to separate themselves from the rest of the field with eight races remaining. But is the list of contenders set? Have only three drivers out of the 13-car field really emerged as the favorites to win the championship? Not so fast. Carl Edwards is lurking in fourth, and Greg Biffle and Kevin Harvick have certainly stamped themselves as drivers who can win races and wrest the top spot away from Kenseth. “I can’t imagine with eight races to go that somebody would be willing to say, ‘Oh, this is a three-man race,’ ” Biffle said. As the Chase shifts Sunday to Dover, the field knows time is running short to widen the list of contenders. They’ll need that perfect blend of strong finishes and the hope that Kenseth blows an engine or Busch and Johnson wreck. Anything that takes the top drivers out of the checkered flag chase. Kenseth, who has a series-high seven wins, leads Busch by 14 points and Johnson by 18. Edwards (36 back), Biffle (38), and Harvick (39) are still in the mix.

Greg Biffle, shown at Chicagoland Speedway on Sept. 15 in Joliet, trails Chase for the Sprint Cup leader Matt Kenseth by 38 points entering Sunday’s race in Dover, Del. Biffle has two wins and 10 top 10s in 22 career starts at the 1-mile track. He made seven straight starts at Dover in one stretch where he finished no worse than eighth. Kenseth is a two-time winner at Dover. He led 29 laps at the track in June before an engine failure ended his day. Johnson has seven wins at the Monster Mile. Johnson would love to keep the number of contenders at a minimum – and find himself on top of the standings. “I’m certainly looking forward and there are only two guys that I’m paying attention to right now, so in that mindset, sure, you can call it a three man race,” he said. “It’s still way too early to count many out yet.”

Logano wins again at Dover Speedway DOVER, Del. – Joey Logano won again at Dover International Speedway, taking the checkered flag in the track’s Nationwide Series race for the fourth straight time. Logano won from the pole Saturday. Kyle Larson was second, followed by Kevin Harvick, Brian Vickers and Elliott Sadler. Points leader Sam Hornish Jr. was 17th. Logano dominated at the end and was never seriously threatened for the win on the mile track. He has yet to transfer his success at NASCAR’s second-tier level to the Sprint Cup series. He has had only one top-five finish in nine career Cup starts at Dover. – The Associated Press

Breaking news @

FAA to weigh easing limits on electronic devices

ACCOUNTING Michael Flood

Employers face new ACA requirements Employers must provide written notice regarding the Affordable Care Act’s new Health Insurance Marketplace by Tuesday. • Timing and delivery of notice: Employers must provide the notice to current employees no later than Tuesday. The notice may be provided by first-class mail. Alternatively, a notice may be provided electronically if it meets the requirements of EBSA’s electronic disclosure safe harbor (see Labor Reg. 2520.104b-1(c)). New employees must receive the notice at the time of hiring beginning Tuesday. For 2014, the Department of Labor will consider a notice to be provided at the time of hiring if the notice is provided within 14 days of an employee’s start date. Employers must provide a notice to each employee, regardless of plan enrollment status (if applicable), or of part-time or full-time status. Employers do not have to provide a separate notice to dependents or other individuals who are, or may become, eligible for coverage under any available plan, but who are not employees. • Which employers must provide notices? Notices must be provided by any employers to whom the FLSA applies. Generally, this means an employer who employs one or more employees who are engaged in, or produce goods for, interstate commerce. Most employers will be required to provide the notice because it applies to employers covered by the FLSA. For most firms, a test of not less than $500,000 in annual dollar volume of business also applies. The FLSA is enforced by the Department of Labor (DOL), which has guidance relating to the applicability of the FLSA in general including a compliance assistance tool to determine applicability of the FLSA at screen24.asp. Because the definition of interstate commerce is broad, we recommend that if you have annual sales of $500,000 or more, that you provide this notice. Examples of covered employees who are engaged in interstate commerce include: an employee such as an office worker who uses a telephone, fax, U.S. mail, or computer email to communicate with persons in another state, an employee who drives or flies to another state while performing his/her job duties, an employee who unloads goods that came from an out-of-state supplier or an employee such as a cashier who uses an electronic device that authorizes a credit card purchase. These are limited examples. Further information on the definition of interstate commerce can be found at the Department of Labor website, flsa/scope/ee2.asp. • Form and content of notice: The notice must be provided in writing in a manner calculated to be understood by the average employee. The notice must include information regarding the existence of a new Marketplace, as well as contact information and a description of the services provided by the Marketplace. In addition, the notice must: (1) inform the employee the employee may be eligible for a premium tax credit under Code Sec. 36B if the employee purchases a qualified health plan (QHP) through the Marketplace, and (2) include a statement informing the employee that if the employee purchases a QHP, the employee may lose the employer contribution (if any) to any health benefits

A close-up photo of a lighted palm tree at Pacific Electronics Corp. on Route 14 in Woodstock. The company makes lighted palm trees, with prices starting about $1,000, in addition to an array of electronic components for customers in a variety of industries, from Toyota and Samsung to the U.S. Army.

A balmy business Woodstock company builds artificial palm trees By BRETT ROWLAND WOODSTOCK – Pacific Electronics makes about 3,000 products for customers in 58 industries, but only one of those products comes with real coconut hair and is on display in front of the company’s headquarters on Route 14 in Woodstock. The electronic component maker developed its steel-and-molded plastic lighted palm trees in 2001 for a West Coast golf course, said James Gorman, president and COO of Pacific Electronics Corp. “They had a great success,” he said. “So we planted the one out front just to see how it would weather the storm – wintertime, summertime, spring. And we had so much interest from people who wanted to buy them for their homes and restaurants and everything else that we decided we’d start a division of palm trees.” The palm tree division operates alongside other divisions that make products as varied as intercom systems for hospitals and lights for the U.S. Army’s tactical vehicles. That 20-foot-tall multicolored palm tree outside the company’s headquarters, 10200 Route 14, served as a “local beacon and then it started branching off from there,” Gorman said. Pacific Electronics briefly added lighted cacti and shrubs, but they

But the palm trees have continued to sell steadily, even as competition sprouted up all over the globe. “We started getting a lot of competitors,” Gorman said. “Other companies would make them and sell them to distributors or sell them outright, but they wouldn’t take care of the trees [or sell] replacement parts. There was no real market set up for it. We developed a tree where you can replace all of the parts.” Since 2001, the company has sold more than 16,000 lighted palm trees. The trees are available in green, red, yellow, blue, white, purple and orange and come with a remote control that al-

They are available in green, red, yellow, blue, white, purple and orange and come with a remote control that allows for still and pulsing lighting patterns.

Although most of the trees are sold in the U.S., Pacific Electronics and its distributors also have sold them throughout Europe, South America, China and the Caribbean.

WASHINGTON – With the blessing of an influential advisory panel, federal regulators are closer to letting airline passengers use their smartphones, tablets, ereaders and other electronic gadgets during takeoffs and landings. The 28-member FAA advisory committee voted to recommend the change during a closed-door meeting Thursday, said industry officials familiar with the deliberations. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the government asked them not to talk publicly about their deliberations. The recommendation will be sent Monday to the Federal Aviation Administration, which has final say on whether to ease current restrictions on the use of personal electronic devices on planes. If the panel’s advice is followed, passengers would have greater opportunity to use most devices below an altitude of 10,000 feet, although some devices would have to be switched to airplane mode. Downloading data, surfing the Web and talking on the phone would remain prohibited. “You will not be able to play ‘Words With Friends,’ you will not be able to shop, you will not be able to surf websites or send email,” said Henry Harteveldt, an airline and travel industry analyst with Hudson Crossing who was reacting to word of the recommended change. “You will be able to read or work on what’s stored on the device,” he said. “You want to edit that PowerPoint? Great. You want to watch ‘Breaking Bad’ and you have it downloaded to your smartphone or your tablet? You can continue to do that.” Passengers are currently required to turn off phones and other electronic devices while planes are below 10,000 feet to prevent interference with sensitive cockpit equipment. Takeoffs and landings are the most critical phases of flight. But newer aircraft are better equipped to prevent electronic interference, and critics long have complained that the safety concerns behind the regulations are groundless. “We’ve been fighting for our customers on this issue for years – testing an airplane packed full of Kindles, working with the FAA and serving as the device manufacturer on this committee,” Amazon spokesman Drew Herdener said in a statement.

Northwest Herald /

Creating a culture of excellence requires leadership As we consult with various companies, we often notice quite a discrepancy between a leader’s vision and the ideas of that vision that we get from talking with others in the company. Of course, we expect to see a gap because the leadership is carrying the grand plan for the organization and they know how all of the parts fit into the big picture. But what is striking is how often leaders believe their staff understands and is on board with the current plan much more than they actually are. That invisible gap leads to different groups in the company heading off energetically to two (or more) ever so slightly different destinations. An example: Many human services organizations espouse the concept of person-centered planning, focusing resources on the needs of the individual being served rather than bureaucratic systems. It seems logical and makes sense, but it turns out to be a lot more difficult than it sounds. Organizations have a natural myopia about making deci-

MOTIVATION Bob Sandidge & Anne Ward sions based on what is comfortable for them. The assumption and hope is they’ll receive customers who fit well into what the organization is already doing. Of course, most of these organizations truly believe that they’re doing well by those who depend on them and, for the most part, they are. People are living better, more fulfilling lives than they would if left to their own devices. But the very best of these organizations, knowing the difficulty of operating in a fully person-centered way, take it as a challenge. They keep setting the bar higher. They experiment with new ways of providing services and measure results by client success, not only on increased efficiency and process standardization. They fight for clarity of mission and never stop driving that through every corner of the organization.

We need leaders to refresh our thinking and planning and to be vigilant for calcification of organizational behavior that could lead away from a company’s promise to customers. Having a plan is only part of the process. The plan begs to be engaged, worked, monitored and fine-tuned. There are many beautiful, elegant, person-centered plans on shelves collecting years of dust while the person who stars in one of those plans molders away, doing the same thing every day, learning nothing, accomplishing nothing. Person-centered planning is a terrific starting point. Creating and continually re-creating an organization that fulfills those plans is an undertaking on a whole different level. As an owner or leader of an organization who desires a culture of excellence you have to embody the excellence that you want others to have. Projecting your vision and communicating your specific expectation, while essential and important, won’t be nearly enough

to create the excellence you envision throughout your organization. Whether you are a small company, a large corporation, or a non-profit, you must be the icon, the center, the exemplar of excellence. If you are not living it, no matter how you articulate it, it will not be engaged, done, or celebrated by your workers. If you are committed to building an organization of excellence, it is essential that you know you will be judged against the standards you have created and communicated. For instance, if you talk about treating customers with integrity but don’t treat your staff or vendors with integrity, that value has a slim chance of being honored by others. When you make promises, you’ll need to keep them because it all starts with you. Being an organization of excellence means that you and everyone in your organization live it. Not sometimes, but all the time. And, working together, help each other live up to the promise you make to


yourself, to each other, and to your stakeholders. Being consistent and living the values you profess is what provides the frequency that keeps your organization in tune with the value propositions you put forth to staff, vendors and customers. Creating and maintaining excellence in any organization requires a lot of vigilance. The key to leading with excellence is to hold yourself and everyone else accountable to a crystal clear vision, live your values, measure for quality and celebrate the excellence that you are achieving.

NEW YORK – Starting next week, you could own a piece of the Empire State Building. Or, if iconic New York skyscrapers aren’t your thing, you could bite into Potbelly, a sandwich chain with more than 280 shops. Next week, these and two more companies with familiar names – the owner of budgetfriendly clothing store chain Burlington Coat Factory and Re/Max, one of the country’s largest real estate agencies – are expected to sell shares in initial public offerings. A surging stock market is

drawing investors to IPOs. This past week, 12 companies went public. That’s the most in one week since November 2007, said data provider Dealogic. And there have been 151 IPOs in the U.S. this year, up 47 percent from a year ago, said IPO research firm Renaissance Capital. A more active IPO market signals confidence in the economy, because buying into IPOs is considered a riskier investment than investing in established companies. Companies that raise money in an IPO can also hire more people and make investments with the cash, helping support economic growth.

Be careful, try to settle when cleaning up credit card debt Dear Dave, I have $400 in debt on a credit card, and I haven’t made a payment on it in about two years. The debt has been sold several times, and now the amount they’re asking for is more than $1,000. I’d like to work something out, but how do I know the collection company that is calling me now is legitimate?

– Lorenzo

Dear Lorenzo, It’s normal for a debt this old to have been sold a few times. My guess is the company that’s calling you is legit, and they probably bought the debt for pennies on the dollar. Whatever you do, don’t set up a payment arrangement. They’re asking for over $1,000 because they’ve added stuff like late charges and interest. Let’s go back to the original amount of $400 and see if they’ll accept a onetime, cash payment to settle things. Make sure you get it in writing if they accept, and don’t give them a dime until after you get the written agreement. Then, once you have the agreement, send them $400. Do not, under any circumstances, give them electronic access to your checking account.

Read all about it ...

DAVE SAYS Dave Ramsey You’ve waited a long time to take care of this, and in the process you’ve made things more difficult. I’m glad you’ve decided to clean up your mess, though. Late is better than never, Lorenzo. Just remember, you’re still responsible for debts you incur – even if the company you originally borrowed from has sold it to someone else.

– Dave

Dear Dave, Is it ever OK to stop paying or drop health insurance altogether in order to pay off debt?

dollars in medical bills, and that’s even with a good health insurance policy. I don’t want anyone walking around without health insurance. But I’m not talking about the Affordable Care Act and all the other mandates the government is trying to shove down our throats. I’m talking about a solid health insurance plan along with having some money saved. Do this first then you can have all the philosophical discussions you want about whether or not you’re supposed to pay for someone else’s health care and upkeep. At the end of the day, it’s absolutely vital that you have your own health insurance. I hope I haven’t been unclear on this topic.

– Dave

– Shauna

Dear Shauna, No. The No. 1 cause of bankruptcy in America today is medical bills, and credit card debt is a close second. That doesn’t mean medical bills only of the uninsured. It also includes money from co-payments, deductibles and the fact that people didn’t have any savings. One accident or unexpected event can leave you with thousands of

“Why does it smell like rotten eggs when I turn on my hot water?” We encounter this problem quite frequently. It seems to be more prevalent with private wells but it can be found from municipal water. The odor is called hydrogen sulfide, and it requires 3 ingredients: sulfur, hydrogen & bacteria. All water heaters have a magnesium anode and contains sulfur and traces of bacteria. This is the perfect mixture for the formation of hydrogen sulfide. Most municipal water is heavily chlorinated. This kills the bacteria and therefore eliminates the rotten egg smell, There are 3 ways to eliminate odors: 1. Remove anode rod- This will solve the problem but it will also void the warranty. It may cause premature corrosion of the tank. 2. Replace the magnesium anode rod with an aluminum rod. 3. The best solution is to install the aluminum rod and also chlorinate the tank. If the well is contaminated then that should also be chlorinated. If you have comfort issues within your home or have questions on any HVAC topic,, please contact me at or on my cell: 815-404-4634.

Sarah Nader –

James Gorman, president and COO of Pacific Electronics Corp., poses for a portrait in front of a selection of lighted palm trees at the company’s headquarters in Woodstock. The lighted palm trees are a small part of the company’s more than $40 million in annual sales.

Trees are small part of company’s sales • PALMS Continued from page D1 Locally, the company’s palm trees can be found in several restaurants and bars, including Dockers Restaurant in Fox Lake, Vickie’s Place in McHenry and Port Edward Restaurant in Algonquin. Dockers has four of the company’s lighted palm trees, owner Mario Martinez said. “I like them, but the customers love them,” he said. Gorman said the company’s lighted palm trees grace resorts, golf courses, hotels, boat docks and backyard swimming pools around the world. A McHenry County man has four in his backyard along with a space heater for use year-round. The Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells, Wis., bought some for aesthetic purposes. And a mall in Europe bought about 380 trees – one of

• FAA Continued from page D1 “This is a big win for customers, and frankly, it’s about time.” “These devices are not dangerous. Your Kindle isn’t dangerous. Your iPad that is on airplane mode is perfectly safe,” Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., who has been pressing the FAA to lift the restrictions, said in an interview. Not everyone agrees. There

the largest orders to date. The trees also are popular with Parrotheads, and Gorman said Jimmy Buffett may have bought some through a distributor for a home in Florida. Lighted palm trees account for about 2 percent of Pacific Electronics more than $40 million in annual sales. “Our business is so diverse that it just fits,” Gorman said. “We’ll look at pretty much any product and work and figure out how to make it happen. It fits in [because] we build pretty much anything and everything.” The trees are made at the company’s manufacturing facilities in China. “We do some stuff here, but a majority of the tree is molded and designed there because of the cost,” Gorman said. “We try to keep our trees very inexpensive.” To make the trees in Woodstock, it would cost nearly twice as much, largely be-

cause of the cost of the steel pole used in the trees, he said. “We use real coconut hair on our trees,” Gorman said. “We had to buy a license from the government in order to have the real coconut hair brought in and there are only three licenses you can buy for that – we have one of them.” Ralph Berg started Pacific Electronics in 1984. He later sold it to a company called Auth-Florence Electronics. Gorman and business partner Terry Neeley bought Pacific Electronics from Auth-Florence in 1999. Since 1999, the company has opened facilities in China, Taiwan and South America and expanded the range of products it produces to meet the needs of its customers. “We’re trying to be a onestop shop for our customers,” Gorman said. Worldwide, the company has about 435 employees, including 20 in Woodstock.

have been many reports from pilots over the years of electronic interference that appeared to have been caused by passenger use of devices. Technical panels that have looked into the issue in the past concluded evidence that the devices were safe wasn’t sufficient to merit lifting restrictions. But Delta Airlines said in a letter to the FAA last year that out of 2.3 million flights over two years, the airline received 27 reports from pilots

and maintenance crews of possible device interference. None of the reports could be confirmed, the letter said. It’s up to FAA officials whether to follow the committee’s recommendations. The agency created the committee, put several of its employees on the panel and was closely involved in the deliberations, so it’s expected that all or most of the recommendations will be implemented. How long that will take is unclear.

TODAY - The year ahead will call for moderation and simplicity. Don’t go out of your way to rock the boat, but accept what change does occur. Help others in exchange for something you need to gain protection or stability. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Collect your thoughts and consider what you have done in the past and how best to utilize your expertise to fit today’s growing economic demands. Reinvent your talents for a profitable tomorrow. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You will see matters clearly, and you must act upon

your gut feelings. Protect your home, family and future from anyone trying to damage your reputation or interfere in your life. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Look for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Investments that are simple and prudent can bring a surprising return. Stick to facts and figures. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Take charge and be the leader you know you can be. Seek the limelight and indulge in partnerships that have something to offer you. Equality will result in happiness. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Tread

carefully if you’re on shaky ground. Listen to what’s being said and take protective measures against pushy protestors. Fight for your rights and make the changes necessary for happiness. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Put your plans into motion. Spell out exactly what you want to see happen and make a promise to someone who is willing to work by your side. If you inspire loyalty, you’ll come out ahead. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- How you relate to others will make a difference. Stick to those who share your opinions and values. Avoid anyone wanting to interfere with your

plans or control what you want to pursue. Believe in you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Size up a certain relationship situation. Whether it’s a friendship, family connection, business associate or loved one, you have to reach an agreement if you are to continue together. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- A touchy situation at work will require careful planning. Pick up skills or knowledge if it will help you reach your goals. Ferret out what’s required and pursue your hopes and aspirations. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Don’t be tempted to buy into a promise without get-

ting all the fine details. Trust in your instincts and have the confidence to be a leader, not a follower. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Set the standards at home and within your personal relationships. Face controversy head-on, and you will solve the problems that bedevil you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Enjoy greater involvement in your community or within your circle of friends. Take precautions to protect yourself from mishaps that could limit your freedom.
