DeKalb, Sycamore ‘Volley for the Cure’

Park board creates pool committee New members to look at options to repair or replace Hopkins Pool in DeKalb By JILLIAN DUCHNOWSKI DeKALB – DeKalb Park District Vice President Per Faivre is leading a new committee to explore options for repairing or replacing Hopkins Pool. Park commissioners voted, 4-0, to create the committee, whose members will analyze data and compile a report with recommendations over the next six months. Faivre and park board Secretary

Keith Nyquist will serve on the committee and decide its makeup and schedule. Park board Treasurer Don Irving was absent from the vote. “My suggestion is we don’t have Phil Young 40 people on it, but let’s do our best to get good representation,” board President Phil Young said. DeKalb park leaders have ad-

opted a few different approaches for the 39-year-old pool in the past six months or so. The DeKalb Park District has until 2015 to submit to the state a plan to make Hopkins Pool, especially its locker rooms and entrances, comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Leaders had been planning to spend $5 million replacing the pool within its current footprint, but abandoned those plans shortly after three new commissioners were

months. DeKalb leaders briefly dis cussed partnering with the Sycamore Park District on a new pool. They abandoned those efforts last month, because DeKalb park leaders did not want to spend money on land for a joint facility. So this new committee will work to gather information and various viewpoints about the community’s needs for a public pool.

Monica Maschak –

Doug Moeller shares his thoughts Wednesday during a meeting with DeKalb School District 428 principals and administrators. Moeller is the district’s next superintendent.

Next superintendent, who assumes role in June, already exercising influence By JILLIAN DUCHNOWSKI


eKALB – Doug Moeller kicked off each year he was principal of DeKalb High School by giving students his cellphone number over the intercom. “I said: ‘Please text; I’d prefer you text. If you call with a blocked number, I won’t respond to you,’ ”said Moeller, who was principal from 2009 to 2012. “It really helped a lot of students who maybe felt marginalized that they knew they could go directly to the principal if they had an issue.” He wanted to be accessible to students, and it’s a value he plans to carry on in his future role as superin-

tendent at DeKalb School District 428. After two years as assistant superintendent for curriculum and student services, he’s set to become superintendent when current Superintendent Jim Briscoe retires in June. Briscoe has led the district for six years. Briscoe and Moeller speak highly of each other: Moeller values Briscoe’s legacy of building partnerships with other community entities, from a meeting Tuesday with Northern Illinois University leaders to being a founding member of the local Partnership for Healthy Communities. Meanwhile, Briscoe complimented Moeller’s work shepherding the new DeKalb High School through the

As spring approaches, Briscoe

plans to let Moeller take a more central role to make the transition as smooth as possible. He’ll definitely let him have the final say for decisions about programs and procedures for next year. “Most of the time we’ll agree, but at the end of the day, it will end up in his lap,” Briscoe said. “We work so closely together that that hasn’t been an issue and it probably won’t be for the rest of the year.” Meanwhile, Moeller started the search for his replacement about two days after the school board approved his hire and signed him to a four-year contract Sept. 17.


WASHINGTON – On a day filled with both rising and falling hopes, President Barack Obama and congressional Republicans struggled inconclusively Thursday to find common ground that could avert an economy-tanking default and possibly end the 10-day-old partial government shutdown that has idled 350,000 federal workers. “We expect further conversations tonight,” Majority Lead- More on er Eric Cantor, shutdown R-Va., said cryptically, after he, NIU Antarctic Speaker John researchers affectBoehner and a ed by shutdown. delegation of PAGE A4 House Republicans had met for an hour or so with Obama at the White House. He spoke at dusk, long after Boehner first outlined a compromise proposal that the White House carefully avoided rejecting – only to have Senate Democrats declare it unacceptable. “Not going to happen,” Majority Leader Harry Reid said brusquely. The Republican plan would leave the shutdown in place while raising the nation’s $16.7 trillion debt limit and setting up negotiations between the GOP and Obama over spending cuts and other issues. Heartened by any hint of progress, Wall Street chose to accentuate the positive. After days of decline, the Dow Jones industrial average soared 323 points on hopes that the divided government was taking steps to avoid a default. Reid’s dismissive comments at the White House came at the end of the trading day. Senate Republicans forged ahead on an alternative of their own that would ease both the debt limit and shutdown crises at once. Officials said that it would require Obama to agree to some relatively modest changes to the health care law that stands as his signature domestic achievement.

The show must go on … hopefully Last week, I said the government shutdown is senseless, damaging, costly, preventable, and the fault of a tiny, rabid faction of one party. It’s hurting real, everyday people, it’s costing the U.S. economy an estimated $300 million a day, and it’s tarnishing the reputation and credibility of America. Gallup released data Wednesday showing that Americans’ confidence in the economy saw its biggest one-week drop since September 2008. National polls still place most of the blame for the shutdown on Republicans, but at this point, polls on this issue are kind of silly. Because in fact – not in opinion poll – a small group of hardline, ultra-conservative people caused this shipwreck. The shutdown is a conscious political strategy months in the making. We know this from at least two pieces of evidence. 1. Earlier this year, as the New York Times reported Saturday, a group of conservatives led by former Attorney General Edwin Meese III met to devise a strategy to defund Obamacare. Out of that meeting came a document called “Blueprint to Defunding Obamacare” that Meese and other conservatives signed. The document is easy to find online. “Conservatives should not approve a CR [a CR is the continuing budget resolution that would allow the government to reopen] unless it defunds Obamacare,” the document says. Further, “A mere ‘date-change CR’ is unacceptable. Although the Obama administration and others will argue the CR is not the

THE FINE LINE Jason Akst appropriate legislative vehicle to defund Obamacare, it is easily done through a series of appropriation riders. Because the CR represents one of the best vehicles possible to delay the implementation of Obamacare, it must not be used to bargain on the upcoming sequester.” 2. House Speaker John Boehner told George Stephanopoulos of ABC News on Sunday that a shutdown became the plan. But compared to whether Congress votes to raise the debt ceiling, the shutdown is small potatoes. I was a business reporter for a while and I read economic news nearly every day. But saying I’m an expert on the economy is like saying I would be a good surgeon because I’m good at removing ticks from dogs. Which puts most of us in the same boat, because let’s face it: One of the main things wrong with America is the complexity of our finances. But here are a couple of things to consider about the debt ceiling: The patron saint of the Republican Party, Ronald Reagan, directly approved raising it 17 times. Despite cavalier rhetoric, nobody has a cavalier attitude about the debt the U.S. carries. The nonpartisan, famously lowkey Congressional Budget Office notes

(in “Choices for Deficit Reduction”) that there are serious, negative consequences in carrying large amounts of debt relative to the Gross Domestic Product. “Prolonged increases in debt relative to GDP can cause significant long-term damage to both the government’s finances and the broader economy,” the CBO report notes. Some examples it lists are higher federal spending on interest payments, reduction in savings, and an increased likelihood of fiscal crises. Raising the debt ceiling does not mean we incur extra debt. Here’s what the Department of the Treasury says: “The debt limit is the total amount of money that the United States government is authorized to borrow to meet its existing legal obligations, including Social Security and Medicare benefits, military salaries, interest on the national debt, tax refunds, and other payments. The debt limit does not authorize new spending commitments. It simply allows the government to finance existing legal obligations that Congresses and presidents of both parties have made in the past. “Failing to increase the debt limit would have catastrophic economic consequences. It would cause the government to default on its legal obligations – an unprecedented event in American history.” • Jason Akst teaches journalism and public relations at Northern Illinois University.

Carpenter, 2nd U.S. astronaut in orbit, dies The ASSOCIATED PRESS DENVER – Scott Carpenter, the second American to orbit the Earth, was guided by two instincts: overcoming fear and quenching his insatiable curiosity. He pioneered his way into the heights of space and the depths of the ocean floor. “Conquering of fear is one of life’s greatest pleasures and it can be done a lot of different places,” he said. His wife, Patty Barrett, said Carpenter died in a Denver hospice of complications from a September stroke. He lived in Vail. Carpenter followed John Glenn into orbit, and it was Carpenter who gave him the historic send-off: “Godspeed John Glenn.” The two were the last survivors of the famed original Mercury 7 astronauts from the “Right Stuff” days of the early 1960s. Glenn is the only one left alive. In his one flight, Carpenter missed his landing by 288 miles, leaving a nation on edge for an hour as it watched live and putting Carpenter on the outs with his NASA bosses. So Carpenter found a new place to explore: the ocean floor. He was the only person who was both

Astronaut Scott Carpenter stands with the model of the Lunar Excursion Module (LEM) on March 26, 1967, at Grumman Aircraft engineering Corp. plant in Bethpage, N.Y.. Carpenter, the second American to orbit the Earth and first person to explore both the heights of space and depths of the ocean, died Thursday after a stroke. He was 88. an astronaut and an aquanaut, exploring the old ocean and what President John F. Kennedy called “the new ocean” – space. NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said Thursday that Carpenter “was in the vanguard of our space program – the pioneers who set the tone for our nation’s pioneering efforts beyond Earth and accomplished so much for our nation. ... We will miss his passion, his

talent and his lifelong commitment to exploration.” Life was an adventure for Carpenter and he said it should be for others: “Every child has got to seek his own destiny. All I can say is that I have had a great time seeking my own.” The launch into space was nerve-racking for the Navy pilot on the morning of May 24, 1962.

Canada’s Alice Munro wins Nobel literature prize The ASSOCIATED PRESS STOCKHOLM – If there were a literary award bigger than the Nobel Prize, Alice Munro would probably win that, too. “Among writers, her name is spoken in hushed tones,” fellow Canadian author Margaret Atwood once wrote. “She’s the kind of writer about whom it is often said – no matter how well known she becomes – that she ought to be better known.” Munro, 82, was awarded literature’s highest honor Thursday, saluted by the Nobel committee as a thorough but forgiving chronicler of the human spirit, and her selection marks a number of breakthroughs. She is the first winner of

the $1.2 million prize to be fully identified with Canada. Saul Bellow won in 1976, but though he was born in Canada, he moved to the U.S. as a boy and is more closely associated with Chicago. Munro is also the rare author to win for short stories. “When I began writing there was a very small community of Canadian writers and little attention was paid by the world. Now Canadian writers are read, admired and respected around the globe,” Munro said in a statement issued by her publisher, Alfred A. Knopf. She said she hopes the Nobel “fosters further interest in all Canadian writers” and “brings further recognition to the short story form.” Her books having sold

bassador for the short story, proof that the narrative arc and depth of characterization

expected from a novel can be realized in just 30 to 40 pages. Critics and peers have praised her in every way a writer can be praised: the precision of her language; the perfection of detail; the surprise and logic of her storytelling; the graceful, seamless shifts of moods; the intimacy with every shade of human behavior. Her stories are usually set in Ontario, her home province. Among her best-known is “The Bear Came Over the Mountain,” about a woman who begins losing her memory and agrees with her husband that she should be put in a nursing home. Canadian actress-director Sarah Polley adapted the story into the 2006 film “Away from Her,” starring Julie Christie.

Residents get look at proposed transmission line routes By FELIX SARVER SYCAMORE – Joan Hoyt came out of ComEd’s latest open house on a new electric transmission line happy. Like more than a dozen DeKalb County residents who attended Thursday night’s meeting at the DeKalb County Farm Bureau in Sycamore, Hoyt wanted to know how close the power line was to her property on Old State Road in the Mayfield Township. ComEd’s new transmission line will travel from substations in Byron to Wayne and pass through DeKalb County along the way. Hoyt found out the proposed

primary and alternate routes for the transmission line would be about three miles and a mile from her home in each case. “It’s just another thing to look at that isn’t pretty,” Hoyt said. County residents who came to Thursday’s open house were able to see a public display of the proposed primary and alternate routes for the line, which is part of the company’s Grand Prairie Gateway Project. The line, will be 57 to 60 miles in length, will carry 345,000 volts and be supported by about 400 single-pole steel structures. ComEd spokesperson David O’Dowd said the estimated cost of the project was $200 million.

A mix of ComEd crews and contractors would build the steel structures. PJM Interconnection, an independent regional transmission grid operator, found the transmission line was necessary to reduce congestion in the northern Illinois electric transmission system. Transmission lines become congested after receiving too much power, which can lead to higher costs of delivering electricity. With the primary and alternate routes nailed down, ComEd will tweak them based on public input from the latest round of open houses before submitting them to the Illinois Commerce Commission for ap-

The commission will then have 225 days to approve one of the routes or a combination of the two. Gathering public input on the potential routes for the transmission line was one way the company determined the proposed routes, O’Dowd said. ComEd has engaged property owners and residents in each of the four counties the line would pass through with stakeholder

ComEd officials also determined the routes through engineering and environmental studies. In each case, they would do land surveys to see what kind of terrain the line would pass through and make sure endangered species were not threatened. Callighan said many of the residents who came to Thursday’s meeting wanted to find their homes on the map. Sycamore resident Mark Brown was able to find out the transmission line would be ½ mile from his home on Plank Road. His concern was the line affecting property values. “If it was going to be near my property, I would be discouraged,” he said.

meetings and open houses. “These open houses have been a very productive dialogue and that is what they are designed to do,” he said. Potential routes were planned to pass through one of four corridors in Sycamore and Genoa Townships, said Paul Callighan, ComEd spokesperson. After public input, ComEd settled on two corridors for their primary and alternate routes when they learned routes for the other two would pass through planned housing and commercial development in the area. “We’re trying to minimize the impact so people can continue to work and farm,” he said.

Picking out pumpkins an annual tradition in DeKalb DeKalb and Sycamore schedule leaf collections Sycamore will be divided into two sections, and city workers will pick up leaves alternating weekly between each section. The first section includes the south and central part of the city, an area outlined by Bethany Road, South Cross Street and State Street. Section two includes the area west of South Cross and the northern part of Sycamore. Officials from both cities recommend residents rake their leaves to the edge of the curb – not into the street – for pickup. Residents should also try not to have vehicles in the way of the leaves and to make sure the piles are free of sticks, grass clippings, animal waste and other debris that can clog vacuum tubes. Leaves should not be raked near storm sewers, catch basins, culvert pipes or ditches to help prevent flooding. For more information on each city’s leaf collection programs, contact the Sycamore Public Works Department at 815-895-3545 or the DeKalb Operations Division at 815-748-2040.


Monica Maschak –

Samantha Didio, 9, and her grandmother, Donna Didio, of Sycamore, pick out pumpkins for decorating at Wessels Family Farm stand Thursday in DeKalb. Samantha and her grandmother have made pumpkin-selecting a tradition for five or six years.


City workers in DeKalb and Sycamore will give area residents a helping hand with cleaning up the leaves in the coming weeks. Both cities are running leaf collection programs, with vehicles collecting loose leaves from curbsides. In DeKalb, the leaf collection program will begin Monday and run from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Nov. 1. Sycamore’s leaf pickup program will start Oct. 21 and end Nov. 27. DeKalb’s leaf collection schedule divides the city in two: The area south of Lincoln Highway and north of Lincoln Highway. Next week, both sections will have leaf pickups. The area south of Lincoln will have leaves picked up again the week of Oct. 21 and the area north of Lincoln will have leaves picked up the week of Oct. 28. The leaf collection schedule is subject to weather conditions and crews will alternate sections through November.

Warrant sweep targeted drug dealers By NATHAN WOODSIDE DeKALB – DeKalb police spent about three months targeting cocaine, crack cocaine, heroin, and ecstasy before arresting seven suspected dealers this week, DeKalb police Sgt. Steve Lekkas said. Dubbed “Operation Surprise!”, the operation was designed to reduce drug crimes in DeKalb, but Lekkas said efforts will continue. Use of a powdered form of ecstasy known as “molly,” and heroin appears to be increasing in the area, he said. “We just tried to put together the best investigative strategy we could to make these arrests,” Lekkas said.

VALLEJO, Calif. – Stella (Hrnyak) Pettigrew, 86, of Vallejo, Calif., passed away peacefully surrounded by her family Friday, Oct. 4, at Kaiser Foundation Hospital in Walnut Creek, Calif. Born Sept. 14, 1927, in DeKalb, to Rade and Dancia Hrnyak, she married Rex Laverne Pettigrew and they were married 50 years. Rex preceded her in death in 1994. Stella, along with her husband were longtime residents of Vallejo, where she lived and raised her three children. She was employed by the Vallejo City Unified School District and Safeway Stores Inc.

NIU Antarctic researchers set back by shutdown DeKALB – Northern Illinois University climate change researchers are among the hundreds of scientists whose work in Antarctica is imperiled by the partial government shutdown, which could force the cancellation of the entire research season now getting underway. The National Science Foundation said in Washington on Tuesday that it was suspending all field re-

search not essential to safeguarding lives and property at its three Antarctic stations. NIU geologist Reed Scherer said in a interview with the Daily Herald that if funding isn’t restored by Monday, the contractor handling logistics for the Antarctic programs could scrap the whole research season during the southern hemisphere’s spring and summer. “To choose the word ‘dramatically’ is potentially an

understatement,” Scherer said of the impact. He leads an NIU team that includes a fellow geology professor, two graduate students, an engineer and a videographer working on a documentary. If they are able to forge ahead, the team will leave after Christmas and stay at the Lake Whilans research station until March. They’re planning to drill a half-mile-deep hole into the ice to study what’s known as the grounding zone between

the parts of an ice sheet covering land and open water. “This season’s project is one that gets to the heart of the research,” Scherer said. During the previous season, the team drilled into the ice to collect water samples and study organisms living in the ocean below. The research is scheduled to finish in September 2014. Scherer says it’s not a sure thing that their work will be rescheduled if this season’s research is shut down.

Assistant won’t start until July 1 Three firms interviewed • TRANSITION Continued from page A1 He wants to find an assistant superintendent with a background in learning and elementary education to compliment his background as a high school teacher and dean with a doctorate in school administration. He’ll have candidates interview with other leaders in the community, but he hopes to have a replacement chosen by the holidays. That person wouldn’t start until July 1, but could start attending school board meetings and other events to learn about D-428’s culture. “We need to have someone who is going to come in and be comfortable with the direction in which we’re heading, be comfortable with that vision and move it forward,” Moeller said. Moeller’s own start with D-428’s culture involved plenty

He works until the job’s done and takes the time to look into different resources for any particular topic he’s working on to make sure he has all areas and all perspectives covered.” Mary Hess District 428 school board member about Doug Moeller of long hours. On top of traditional principal responsibilities, he played a key role in the construction of the $80 million high school on West Dresser Road. He and former athletic director Dan Jones worked seven days a week, often 10 hours a day or more, Moeller said. “It was just a phenomenal amount of work,” Moeller said. “I remember standing in the middle of a muddy field, about where the 50-yard line of the football stadium was going to be. There had not been any work done on the site and [I was] thinking: ‘OK, in two years

we’re going to have this beautiful facility.’ ” That work ethic is one of the things school board member Mary Hess appreciates about him. Hess joined the board this spring, but met Moeller in 2009 when both participated in the DeKalb Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Academy. “He’s not a 9-to-5 guy in any way,” Hess said. “He works until the job’s done and takes the time to look into different resources for any particular topic he’s working on to make sure he has all areas and all perspectives covered.”

Community takes pride in cleanup

Divorced parents should plan holidays now I needed lumber, and Charlie was the guy who delivered it, which is how we ended up standing in my garage chatting about hometowns and families until, out of nowhere, we started talking about life after divorce. Divorce that, in both cases, sliced up our families many years ago. No matter. One word and the mood shifted. Over the years, I’ve come to think that parents like us have a sort of radar for one another. We are wired for the trigger words that can pop up anywhere – in a checkout line, on an airplane, in a garage on a sunny afternoon. You’re chirping along with someone you don’t even know, when a just-so phrase escapes the lips – my ex-wife ... my son’s father ... it was my turn to have the kids – and faces change in the time it takes you to say, “Me, too.” Both Charlie and I are in happy, longterm second marriages, but all he had to do was refer to a “broken home” to get my heart pumping. “Don’t call it that,” I pleaded. “I just mean,” he said, letting his sentence trail off. I know. Lord, I know. We were virtual strangers acknowledging a sad and enduring camaraderie. Once divorced, always divorced. Just ask our kids. “My wife and I work hard never to bad-mouth my ex-wife,” Charlie said. “We want my son to love his mother, no matter what.” It’s not always easy, he admitted. But it’s what’s right. It’s also what will keep Charlie’s son in

VIEWS Connie Schultz

Iran’s Rouhani revealed his true nuclear intentions By JEFFREY GOLDBERG Bloomberg News Here is something to remember as nuclear negotiations between the West and Iran appear set to recommence: The Iranian president, Hassan Rouhani, the putative moderate on whose shoulders great American hopes have been placed, is proud of the work he did to advance his country’s nuclear program – and also of his efforts to stymie Western attempts to stop that work. Rouhani didn’t talk about this during his recent visit to the United Nations. He came bearing a different message: Iran seeks a peaceful resolution to its decade-old nuclear standoff with the international community. Yet in May, shortly before he was elected, Rouhani appeared on state-run IRIB TV to defend his nuclear work, appearing defensive as a hardline interviewer essentially accused him of bowing before the West. We may one day thank the interviewer, Hassan Abedini, for pushing Rouhani on the subject. According to an account of the conversation published in the Times of Israel, Rouhani at one point became flustered by the insin-

uation that, as Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator 10 years ago, he kowtowed to the West by bringing his country’s nuclear activities to a stop. “We halted the nuclear program?” he asked, rhetorically. “We were the ones to complete it! We completed the technology.” Abedini pushed Rouhani harder, claiming that uranium enrichment at a facility in Isfahan had been suspended while Rouhani was in charge. Rouhani denied the accusation, and then claimed credit for the development of a heavy-water reactor in Arak in 2004. “Do you know when we developed yellowcake? Winter 2004. Do you know when the number of centrifuges reached 3,000? Winter 2004.” Reading accounts of Rouhani’s combative interview made me wonder if this might represent his personal Hudaybiyyah moment. What is a Hudaybiyyah moment? The moment when a mask slips. In the mid-1990s, Yasser Arafat, who was then the leader of the Palestinian Authority, began giving speeches (and sermons) about the Middle East peace process, which was then progressing in earnest. There were doubts about

Arafat’s willingness to compromise with Israel, a nation he had long terrorized, but he appeared to be fully engaged in negotiations, and Israel’s suspicious leaders appeared to have overcome many of their misgivings. In these sermons and discussions, however, Arafat began making reference to the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah, which, Muslim tradition tells us, the Prophet Muhammad had signed with a rival tribe called the Quraysh out of tactical necessity. Two years later, by most accounts, a stronger Muhammad, citing a violation by the Quraysh as pretext, saw to it that the treaty was dissolved. He then defeated his enemy. Arafat appeared to be signaling to Muslim audiences that even if the Palestinians came to an agreement, they shouldn’t fear, because an agreement with Israel wouldn’t last forever. Optimists – including me – dismissed Arafat’s invocation of the treaty as an example of a frightened politician playing to his base. The pessimists – those who said this reference, among others, proved that Arafat was already devising an exit strategy from a still-theoretical (and ultimately unrealized) peace treaty – were right.

The lesson of this sad episode was to listen more carefully to what leaders actually say. Rouhani, in the interview, was in the midst of a presidential campaign and getting pressured from his right. So it’s possible that he reacted defensively in the heat of the moment. But consider this statement, which he wrote in 2011: “While we were talking to the Europeans in Tehran, we were installing equipment in Isfahan.” These are not the words of someone who wants to end Iran’s nuclear program. Taken together, Rouhani’s statements sound like those of a man who is proud of the program and believes he may have devised a way to carry it to completion: By speaking softly, smiling and spinning the centrifuges all the while. It’s obviously worth testing Rouhani’s intentions through intensive diplomacy and negotiations, but it’s vital to conduct this test while paying careful attention to what he’s saying at home. Avoiding a Hudaybiyyah moment isn’t impossible, unless we’re not paying attention. • Jeffrey Goldberg is a Bloomberg View columnist.

On Saturday, more than 150 local children and adults teamed up in a good example of taking pride in their hometown and in caring about events that showcase it for outsiders. Like a family cleaning up the house before guests arrive, children as young as 3 joined with school-age youth and local adults to help tidy up a 15-street area in Sycamore, focusing on the Sycamore Pumpkin Festival parade route. The Pumpkin Festival, which runs Oct. 23 to 27 this year, is Sycamore’s signature event, and draws thousands of people every year. This will be the 52nd annual festival, and the city long has been known for it. Making sure that people who visit the city for the first time leave with a good impression is important – especially if it keeps them coming back. After all, drawing people from around the area not For the record only makes it feel like a big show, events such as the Events such as the Pumpkin Festival and the Pumpkin Festival and the IHSA state football chamIHSA state football championships that will follow pionships that will follow in November also help the in November also help the local economy. local economy. The cleanup event started with a letter from Sycamore Middle School sixth-grader Olivia Cloat, who thought it would be a good idea to have children help clean up the area. Mayor Ken Mundy seized on it, and community groups including the Sycamore Kiwanis, Lions and Rotary clubs, the Sycamore Chamber of Commerce, Sycamore Park District and OLT Marketing got involved in helping to sponsor and organize the effort. High schoolers from the Sycamore High School Key Club also helped to coordinate the event. Local restaurants donated meal coupons for the volunteers. Mundy has already decided that Oct. 4 will be the next Kids Clean Up day. We hope it becomes a local tradition that encourages young people to help their community look its best for its biggest event of the year.


Paralyze by principle in Washington D.C. Is there a way out of the political standoff that is paralyzing government and endangering the global economy? At the moment, it hardly seems so. But we see a glimmer of hope in suggestions from Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis. The government shutdown is into its second week, and a lot of folks are suffering. If Congress does not raise the debt ceiling by next week, the federal government will find itself unable to pay all its bills, with potentially dire consequences. President Barack Obama says he will not negotiate with Republicans in Congress until and unless they reopen the government and raise the debt ceiling. It’s a matter of principle, he says: If they are rewarded for brinkmanship, they will hold the country hostage again and again. In an op-ed for The Post, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., agrees, saying that a matter of principle is at stake. Obama has been “continually thwarting the will of Congress,” Cantor writes. “This must end.” With both sides claiming the moral high ground and defending constitutional prerogatives, compromise becomes increasingly difficult to envisage. On the other hand, the consequences of a failure to compromise – default – are unacceptable. Stalemate could drive the country and the world back into recession, send the U.S. deficit soaring and irreversibly tarnish the U.S. dollar as the world’s most trusted currency. House Republicans, egged on by a couple of bomb-throwing senators, are responsible for the stalemate. Having essentially won the budget battle when Democratic senators agreed to keep the government operating at GOP-preferred spending levels, the Republicans then came up with additional demands that they knew could not be met: defunding or delaying the Affordable Care Act. As long as their strategy was nihilism, Obama was right to say that negotiation would be pointless. Now Ryan, the chairman of the House Budget Committee and a former vice presidential candidate, has offered a different approach, although he didn’t explicitly label it that way. In an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday, Ryan proposed negotiations not over Obamacare but about “common-sense reforms of the country’s entitlement programs and tax code.” The difficulty is knowing whether Ryan, or anyone, can speak for the Republican caucus in the House. Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, who with colleagues is scheduled to meet with Obama on Thursday, needs to rally his troops to accept some version of such a deal, and Obama should embrace it. Both men know that entitlement reform of the sort described by Ryan would be in the national interest. The Washington Post

Suraji had had enough. The speedy senior collected the ball 40 yards from the goal, put his head down and started dribbling. He didn’t stop until he reached the goal, weaving around four defenders and the goalkeeper before tapping the ball into the net. He would score twice more in DeKalb’s 7-0 win at Sycamore. “I’m able to get the ball and go all the way inside the box and pass,” Suraji said. “Why not just get a goal? Immediately, we get a goal, and we break them down. When we got a goal, you saw our goals flow in. So I was like, just go. When

I cut in, I saw the open space and I was like, ‘I’ll go for it.’ So I just went for it and, God willing, I got the ball in the net.” Then, the floodgates opened. In the 24th minute, Trevor Freeland played a through ball to Suraji, who cut back twice before finding Freeland for an open goal. One minute later, Sean Woodford weaved into the penalty area and was taken down before converting the penalty kick. Fifty-five seconds later, Woodford dribbled into the box and scored to the near post.

Fisher blames lack of motivation, Spartans for DeKalb’s slow start SYCAMORE – DeKalb coach Ben Fisher didn’t think his team came out with enough intensity Thursday. After getting out to an early five-point lead against Sycamore, Fisher watched the Spartans claw back and nearly top the Barbs in the first game. But Fisher thought his team played with more intensity in the

You can tell that Eric (Nore) has been doing a nice job and he’s been training them and teaching them. They’re certainly buying into what he does. He’s a good coach.”

What does homecoming mean to you? To me, it’s revisiting old friends and memories. In that spirit and as a public service, “Korcek’s Corner” offers The Ultimate 1963/1983/2003 Northern Illinois University Football Trivia Challenge, not only to honor the respective anniversary of those outstanding teams that will be on campus this weekend, but to test your brain cells and Huskies gridiron mettle. There are some real stumpers, but a few freebies, too. Hopefully, this is educational (and fun). If you can only answer three out of 20, please (1) consider transferring to SIU and (2) banning yourself from “The Dog Pound” forum for life. If you’re Kirk HerbstNext reit, don’t bother reading any further. And now, the vs. Akron, 4 p.m. questions ... Saturday, No. 1: NIU leads the Mid-American Conference, AM-1360, AM-670, in all-time Vern Smith Leadership Awards with 98.9-FM, seven since the league MVP trophy’s inception in 1982? Can you name the Huskies’ first recipient? Answer: Quarterback Tim Tyrrell (1983), the heart and soul of that esteemed Cal Bowl group. No. 2: George Bork (1963), Tyrrell (1983) and Josh Haldi (2003) were the starting QBs those years. Who were their backups? Answer: Ron Christian (1963), Darryl Taylor (1983) and Ryan Gilbert (2003). No. 3: Who was the first 3,000-yard single-season passer in the history of college football? (Hint: the same player was a two-sport All-America pick.) Answer: Bork, with 3,077 yards in nine games (the NCAA did not include bowl statistics then in season totals). This two-sport Huskies icon turned down a full ride at Michigan to play football and basketball (1,114 career points) at NIU, thank goodness. No. 4: With the historic 7-0 start in 2003 – including wins over No. 15-rated Maryland, No. 21 Alabama, and Iowa State – how high did coach Joe Novak’s squad climb in the national polls? Answer: Tenth in the BCS ratings (Oct. 21), No. 12 in The Associated Press poll (Oct. 14 and Oct. 21), and No. 14 in the ESPN/USA Today coaches poll (Oct. 21). Eat your heart out, Illini.

Bears halt skid, beat winless Giants on national TV It’s a win, but not improvement Robbie Gould is really good. Other than that, it was impossible to determine whether what we watched at Soldier Field on Thursday night was just really bad football, or the Bears playing down to the level of the opposition. So let’s start with what matters. As I’ve said 1,000 times before, there are no style points in the NFL. The Bears badly needed a win to halt a two-game losing streak and retain at least a piece of first place in the NFC North. Mission accomplished. Even with Charles Tillman out for the first time since 2009, Bears cornerbacks continued to do what they do best and were the difference in the game. On the opening possession, Eli Manning ran just two plays before he managed to find Zack Bowman in relief of Tillman wide open at the Giants’ 36 and threw him the inter-

BEARS INSIDER Hub Arkush ception. Bowman returned it 24 yards to the Giants’ 12. But the Bears managed just eight yards on four plays, going for it on fourthand-2 at the Giants’ 4 with Jay Cutler throwing the ball behind Brandon Marshall. Why Marc Trestman left three points on the field was a bit of a mystery. Not to be deterred, Manning ran just four more plays before dropping on first and 10 from his own 45 to find a wide open Tim Jennings at his 48 with nothing but painted green grass between him and the endzone.

On Thursday, NFL shows its clown shoes CHICAGO – It was a weird night. Brandon Marshall wore lime-green shoes and returned to greatness. Charles Tillman wore plain sneakers and became a bystander for the first time since 2009. Major Wright wore standard white cleats and waited for his Southwest Airlines endorsement offer. Wanna get away? Major, you’re a friendly guy, so let me speak for all of us here. Yes. Get us away. Get us away from these Thursday Night Follies. Get us away from this overhyped, underprepared nonsense that makes the NFL richer while making the quality of the game poorer. Get us away from this made-for-TV blunderfest that smells like the end of a trash chute. Sure, the Bears’ 27-21 win against the New York Giants featured a handful of exciting moments. But Soldier Field’s sellout crowd lacked

BEARS INSIDER Tom Musick its typical volume and intensity, perhaps realizing that it was digesting a lukewarm appetizer in a league known for fine entrees. Care to guess how many times the Bears practiced in pads this week? Here’s a clue: It’s more than minus-one but less than one. That’s what happens when an NFL team is forced to play two games in five days. This isn’t the NBA, where you can dip your feet in a bucket of ice and be ready to go in another night or two. This isn’t baseball, where you can refresh your bucket of Double Bubble and enjoy a pleasant stroll on to the field.

Game summary


Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall were simply too much to handle. So was Tim Jennings. Cutler threw two touchdown passes to Marshall, and Jennings had two of the Bears’ three interceptions against Eli Manning in a 27-21 victory over the winless New York Giants on Thursday night.

NEXT MAN UP: With Henry Melton and Nate Collins on IR, and Charles Tillman (knee) and Stephen Paea (toe) inactive, Mel Tucker had to go deep into his defensive lineup to start the game. PAGES B4-5

8SPORTS SHORTS Jerry Kill to take leave of absence MINNEAPOLIS – Former Northern Illinois and current Minnesota coach Jerry Kill has taken an open-ended leave of absence from the team to focus on treatment and management of his epilepsy. The university announced the decision Thursday, before a scheduled news conference with athletic director Norwood Teague and defensive coordinator Tracy Claeys. Kill had to miss Saturday’s game at Michigan after he suffered a seizure at home that morning and was unable to travel with the team. The Gophers don’t play this week, but his availability for the Oct. 19 game at Northwestern is in doubt. Claeys is the acting head coach. Kill said in a statement distributed by the university that “this was a difficult decision but the right decision.” He has had five seizures on game days.

Runners start the 2012 Chicago Marathon on Oct. 7, 2012, in Chicago. Police have not stated the security measures they are taking for the race this year. The marathon is the first World Marathon Major in the United States since the Boston Marathon bombings in April and will be the most closely watched. lowing spectators to be allowed at the finish is really disappointing,” said the 41-year-old Corbett, who was a spectator at the Boston Marathon and was about a block from the second blast. Runners who jump in to help encourage struggling racers are disappointed but know that Boston changed everything, said Mike Norman, co-founder of Chicago Endurance Sports, which has about 500 people running the race. “Most of them, even if they’re frustrated ... understand,” he said Thursday. “They’re not getting angry.” But the changes haven’t dampened enthusiasm, added

Carey Pinkowski, the marathon’s race director. “I was at Boston, and by the time we got off the plane coming home, runners were coming up to me, saying, ‘We’re coming to Chicago, this is not going to deter us,’ ” he said. In the wake of the Boston bombings, which killed three people and injured more than 260 others, the Department of Homeland Security designated the marathon a “level two” event, a notch below massive gatherings such as the Super Bowl. That means more federal agents will be at the marathon, with their own high-tech monitoring equipment.

Neither McCarthy nor Frank Benedetto, the special agent in charge of the U.S. Secret Service who is coordinating government agencies assisting Chicago police, would talk about their tactics or strategies. But security consultant Milt Ahlerich, a retired FBI agent who oversaw security at 15 Super Bowls as the NFL’s chief of security, speculated that most of the work already has been done. “The good news is that we (law enforcement) know what we have to secure: a 26-mile route,” Ahlerich said. “The bad news is, so does everybody else.”

AMERICAN LEAGUE Oakland vs. Detroit Thursday, Game 5: Detroit 3 Oakland 0 (Detroit wins series 3-2.)


Race designated as a ‘level 2’ event by Homeland Security CHICAGO – Fences are going up, streets are closing and trim athletes are flying in from around the world ahead of Sunday’s Chicago Marathon. But behind the scenes, police are preparing for what will be the most closely monitored race – the largest marathon in the U.S. since the Boston bombings – in the city’s history. Police have promised stepped-up security as 45,000 runners get cheered on by more than a million spectators along a 26.2-mile route through the city’s neighborhoods. Officials are mum on details, but more than a thousand uniformed and undercover officers, along with far more bomb-sniffing dogs than in years past, are expected to mix with the crowd. Inside a command post, officers will be monitoring images coming in from helicopters and some of the city’s 22,000 cameras, the most extensive surveillance system in the nation. “We are going to have eyes on the ground on just about every foot of the marathon route,” Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said. Officers will be making more random searches of spectators’ bags than they have in the past. For the first time, unattended bags simply will be discarded after they get inspected by bomb-sniffing dogs and are dubbed safe, McCarthy said. Friends and relatives planning to find runners in a designated meeting area will be subject to searches as well. Runners also will see changes. They will only be able to use clear plastic bags issued by race organizers to store their belongings near the finish line. They also must pick up their own packets, with race bibs and tracking devices, instead of recruiting friends or family. The days of spectators jumping in to run alongside friends or relatives also could be over. Police said they never have arrested anyone for jumping into the race before, but they warn that arrests are possible this year for anyone who doesn’t leave the course when ordered to do so. And the finish line will only be open to spectators with tickets. That, says runner Stacy Corbett, is a bummer. “For slower runners like myself, you need the cheering and the pull of the crowd the last two-tenths of a mile, so not al-

Knights take advantage of Hubs’ new keeper Kaneland peppered the freshman goalkeeper Thursday as the Knights won the Northern Illinois Big 12 East contest, 4-0. Because of injuries, Garcia is the fifth keeper this season for the Hubs, and the Knights By JARED BIRCHFIELD took advantage of his rience. At first, it looked like it MAPLE PARK – The first would be a long day for Rovarsity soccer match for Ro- chelle (3-12-2, 0-7-1) as the chelle’s Brian Garcia was a Knights scored their first goal just 20 seconds into the conreal baptism by fire.

Kaneland’s 1st goal scored 20 seconds in

test. Tyler Siebert kicked the ball in from the right side of the post after receiving a cross from Ignacio Toscano. “I took the ball down the line, left mid and I sprinted down to the corner and put into the box,” Toscano said. “Siebert finished. He capitalized on it.” “That’s what we normally work on at the beginning of the game,” Siebert said. “We go up and pressure with high inten-

versed roles on the third score, combining for a goal 30 minutes into the second half. “I got a ball in from Siebert and put it in,” Toscano said of his second goal. “He returned the favor.” Arsim Azemi scored the final goal with 3:12 left to play. Garcia blocked a shot with his body that bounced back and hit Azemi, who was in front of the net. The forward quickly booted the ball back toward the goal and past Gar-

sity and try to get that first goal right away.” It then took Kaneland (7-5-3, 4-2-2 NI Big 12 East) 15 minutes to score its next goal. After battling defenders swarming in front of the goal, Toscano booted the ball in. “It was kind a fluke, but it went in,” Toscano said. “It seemed like we didn’t know what happened, but I got the last touch and it bounced across the line.” Toscano and Siebert re-

cia. “It wasn’t the prettiest of wins,” Kaneland coach Scott Parillo said. “We really need to finish when we have the opportunity. It’s kind of been the storyline all season.” Kaneland’s midfield stymied Rochelle as most of the action was on the Hubs’ side of the field. “Obviously, we dominated. They didn’t get too much on us,” Parillo said. “Possession was probably about 80-20.”


G-K falls to Burlington Central By DAILY CHRONICLE STAFF Genoa-Kingston volleyball closed the gap on rival Burlington Central, but couldn’t quite get over the hump Thursday. The Cogs fell to Burlington Central, 25-22, 25-20, at home in a Big Northern Conference match. Olivia Cotton had 15 digs while Bridget Halat finished with five kills. “That progress was strong for our program,” said G-K coach Keith Foster, referencing the Cogs’ 25-16, 25-21 loss to the Rockets earlier this year. “They were a stronger team this time.

Nore impressed by Barbs’ blocking • VOLLEY FOR A CURE Continued from page B1 The Barbs did a good job of blocking at the net, something coach Nore wasn’t surprised about considering DeKalb’s size advantage. “I joked with Ben, he was like, ‘So how are you guys doing?’ I said, ‘Well, I’m not six inches taller,’ ” Nore said. “It’s true, we can’t get over their blocks. We have to run faster, we have to get them so we can

get a 1-on-1 matchup. “We relied a lot on certain individuals, which allowed them to double-block us. Our passing was a lot tighter than it needed to be, and then it was off other times.” Courtney Wagner had seven kills and three blocks for the Barbs. Alexis Hammond added four kills while Madison Lord finished with 10 assists and Nicole Schladt added 12 digs and three aces. Mattie Hayes led Sycamore with six kills, three digs and an

ace, while Christina Dailey had 11 digs. With the win, DeKalb not only swept its rival, but started the second half of the conference season on the right track. The Barbs continue NI Big 12 East play Tuesday when they visit Kaneland. “It feels great.

Sycamore goalkeeper Dylan Nelson dives for the ball as DeKalb’s Akim Suraji attempts to corral the ball in the first half of the match Thursday at Sycamore High School. DeKalb beat Sycamore, 7-0.

Barbs holding themselves to a high standard • SOCCER Continued from page B1 In the span of five minutes, the Barbs (14-2, 8-0 Northern Illinois Big 12 East) took a 4-0 lead. “I definitely commend Sycamore for their first half of the half, doing well defensively, packed in well, and they were getting behind the ball,” Woodford said. “One goal is all it takes for us to get momentum. So Akim’s solo run fired us all up. It gets easier after that because teams get demoralized. It just gets easier to get through people.” In the second half, Suraji tacked on another two goals,

and he assisted Freeland’s second goal of the day. After allowing a few early tap-ins the last time the two teams played, the Spartans (216-1, 1-6-1 NI Big 12 East) were able to hold off the Barbs. In the end, the result was the same, but the beginning of the game was a small victory. “We tried to, right off the bat, make sure we weren’t making those same mistakes,” Sycamore coach Dave Lichamer said. “DeKalb is a very good team. It was simply a matter of time, I suppose, before they broke through. Other than putting all 11 guys inside the box and hoping for the best, it’s tough to counter when they have so many guys

with such tremendous speed and ball skill.” DeKalb showed its superior talent Thursday, but the Barbs hold themselves to a high standard. Even in a big win, Suraji came away with plenty his team needs to work on. “Based on what we did today, how we played today, we can’t play that way against a regional team at the start,” Suraji said. “They can get a goal and that’ll break us down totally. So these are some of the adjustments we have to make. Even though we got the outcome, that’s not what we have to work on. We have to build on our starting and our ending.”

Rose wild card in new ‘O’ Veteran goalie When Rose in, offense runs more effectively By JOE COWLEY RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil – There’s a reason Joakim Noah dubbed Derrick Rose the “joker.” Rose is the wild card, the difference between the second round of the playoffs and a possible June trip to the NBA Finals. All the talk about coach Tom Thibodeau’s newlook readand-react offense this preseason is meaningless Next unless Noah vs. Washington and the rest at Rio De Janei- of the playro, Brazil, 4 p.m. ers have that Saturday, CSN “ j o k e r ” t o put down on the table at crunch time. “Everyone will have opportunities in this offense,” Noah said. “It’s an offense where everyone gets to touch the ball. But our joker is back in D-Rose, and the more comfortable he gets offensively, the more it opens up the game for us, so we’re well aware of that.” Thursday was Day 2 of the Bulls practicing in Brazil for their Saturday preseason game with Washington, and it was obvious in their offensive sets that when Rose is the pilot there is just a different

But missing 526 days because of the torn ACL in his left knee that ended Rose’s 2012 playoff run and cost him all of last season, still is coming with a price for Rose. He knows as he goes the team goes, but this training camp

getting to the line a lot these past two games. Offensively, we’ll get that, but defense is nothing but effort.” Though Thibodeau has explained his decision to tweak the offense this season because of a veteran core ready to take on a bit more, it’s no coincidence that it mirrors what the Spurs have done for years, and an offense that gave Miami fits in the NBA Finals last season. The Bulls’ bigs love it because Noah, Carlos Boozer and Taj Gibson all can knock down the mid-range jumper, and Boozer and Noah are especially good passers. “I feel pretty good [shooting],” Noah said. “I’ve been working at it very hard. I just have to keep going, and if I’m open, let it fly.” The nice thing for the Bulls is with a longer than usual training camp, time is on their side to clean up the offense. “I mean it’s coming,” reserve guard Kirk Hinrich said. “We’ve had some good stretches and bad stretches in the preseason. We’re not expected to be at an Eastern Conference finals level. We’ve played two preseason games, had a handful of practices. “Thibs talks about it every day and it’s pretty truthful, just not getting bored with the process. Every day take something out of it and move in the right direction.’’ Easier to do with a joker up the sleeve.

still is all about getting him rust-free. That’s why he feels the offense still is a work in progress. “Yeah, it’s the beginning of the season,” Rose said. “Everything is a little bit rusty. • Joe Cowley covers the Our defense I think is better than our offense right now, Bulls for the Chicago Sunbeen able to get steals, get into Times.

Rose ‘surprised’ with strength of knee By JOE COWLEY RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil – Not that Derrick Rose is a glass-half-empty type of guy, but the Bulls point guard admitted Thursday that even he’s shocked with how his surgically repaired left knee has been feeling and holding up through the first almost two weeks of training camp. “I’m very surprised,” Rose said. “Having the opportunity to go out there and see how it is, I’m just trying to knock the rust off now. Of course, I’m going to be a little rusty because I missed so many days, missed so many games, but I’m happy

we have this many preseason games because it gives me the opportunity to go out there and really try things along the way.” The plan for Saturday’s preseason game with the Wizards is to increase R o s e ’ s m i n - Joakim Noah utes a bit more, closer to the 25-minute mark, but more importantly, make sure that the starters still are getting used to Rose’s speed of play. “Derrick’s speed is special and we think Joakim (Noah’s) speed at his position is spe-


cial,” coach Tom Thibodeau said. “So we need everyone going at their max speed so that they can get used to playing with each other at that speed. If they’re only doing it at certain times, you are not going to get anywhere. You get your intensity from giving max effort and concentrating all the time, and when you put those two together, you’ll get a rare intensity.’’ Around the rim: Noah went through Thursday’s entire practice in Brazil, but still called himself a “game-time decision” because of the strained groin that has hampered him the past week. “I really haven’t taken contact

yet, but each day it’s been getting better,” Noah said. “Hopefully, I can play on Saturday, but it will be a gametime decision.” … The Bulls participated in the NBA Cares program Thursday for 60 local Special Olympics athletes. “Our guys are heavily involved in the community in Chicago, and this is a chance for us to get out in the community here and do the same thing, and we’re really excited about it,” Thibodeau said.

senses swagger Khabibulin sees difference after 2 Stanley Cups

Next vs. N.Y. Islanders, 7 p.m. today, CSN, AM-720 The decision to come to Chicago came with a price, though. Khabibulin is a clear backup here, with little chance of unseating Corey Crawford, who’s coming off a sensational season that ended with him backstopping a Stanley Cup run. Even at age 40, Khabibulin still sees himself as an every-game guy. Patrick Kane said he was in the best shape of any 40-year-old he ever has seen, to which Khabibulin joked, “If he’s seen only one, then it makes sense.” But just two seasons ago, he still was Edmonton’s No. 1, until Devan Dubnyk slowly took the job away. After starting a combined 86 games from 2010 to 2012, Khabibulin made only 11 starts in the shortened season last year. That’s not an easy transition to make for a goalie with 795 career regular-season games under his belt. But he’s taking a different mentality to Chicago than he had in Edmonton, knowing full well how entrenched Crawford is. “I don’t think it’s something that made me happy the last couple of years,” Khabibulin said. “But I knew coming in here what I was getting into. The wait can be hard, and it’s an adjustment for sure. But I’m trying to prepare every game as if I’m playing. When I do that, it’s a little bit easier.” Khabibulin finally will make his season debut tonight against the New York Islanders, thanks to a quirky Hawks schedule that saw them play two games in nine nights. He surely will get more regular playing time now that the Hawks hit the meat of their schedule, with 17 back-toback sets on the slate this season, and the veteran said he’s “ready whenever they need me.” “We’re happy to get him playing here,” Quenneville said. “I think he’s going to be a very important part of our team.” No matter how big a part he is, Khabibulin’s just happy to be back, and to see just how far his old teammates have come.


Nikolai Khabibulin remembers what it was like in the dark ages – the sounds of skates scraping ice echoing through a mostly empty United Center, the drudgery of endless losing seasons, the early summers. But he also got a taste of what it was going to be like in the Blackhawks’ golden age – the buzz brought by a pair of young Nikolai superstars, the Khabibulin thrilling run to the 2009 Western Conference final after five straight lost seasons, the re-awakening of a dormant hockey town. “I got to taste it a little bit at the beginning,” Khabibulin said. “It’s that, but more, now.” It only took a few hours for Khabibulin – who manned the Hawks’ net for four seasons from 2005 to 2009 – to re-sign with the Hawks this summer, getting a call and agreeing to a deal on the first day of free agency. With Ray Emery having signed with the Philadelphia Flyers to pursue a No. 1 goaltender job, Khabibulin was a logical fit for the Hawks – a cagey veteran who could both spot Crawford and push him the way Emery did last season. For Khabibulin, it was an easy call, too. He had played for Joel Quenneville, he knew many of the veterans, he knew the system and he knew the city. And he knew he wanted to experience what the franchise had become since he left for Edmonton after the 2008-09 season. He noticed the difference on his first day of training camp. “There’s more confidence in the room,” he said. “Whether it’s the guys that have been here or the guys from the minors, it seems like there’s a swagger. It’s explainable – you win two Stanley Cups in four years, it makes you that way. When I was here last, we just started going that way and • Mark Lazerus covers the they just took off after that.

Verlander sends Kelly, Greinke set for Game 1 of NLCS Tigers past Athletics By R.B. FALLSTROM The Associated Press

By JANIE McCAULEY The Associated Press OAKLAND, Calif. – Justin Verlander pitched another Game 5 gem in Oakland while carrying a nohit bid into the seventh inning, and Miguel Cabrera homered to lead the Detroit Tigers past the Athletics, 3-0, Thurs- Justin Verlander day night and back into the AL championship series. Joaquin Benoit retired Seth Smith on a fly ball with two on in the ninth to close out the deciding game of their division series. The Tigers became the first team to reach the ALCS in three straight years since the New York Yankees from 1998 to 2001. Game 1 is Saturday in Boston. The Tigers went 4-3 against the Red Sox this year. They have never faced each other in the postseason. Verlander gave up a clean, two-out single to Yoenis Cespedes in the seventh to end his chance at the third no-hitter in postseason history. The hit hardly fazed him, however. On a night he allowed only three baserunners, Verlander made it a postseason-record

30 straight scoreless innings against one team since Coco Crisp hit a leadoff home run for the A’s in Game 1 last October. Just 364 days earlier, Verlander tossed a four-hit, 6-0 masterpiece in Game 5 in this very ballpark, a 122-pitch performance for his first career postseason shutout and complete game. He nearly matched that with a spectacular 111-pitch outing in a rematch of his thrilling pitcher’s duel with rookie Sonny Gray five days earlier in Game 2. Aching slugger Cabrera hit a two-run homer in the fourth off with a drive into the left-field seats for his first homer since Sept. 17 and just his third extra-base hit in 99 at-bats. That ended a 20-inning scoreless streak by the Tigers at the Coliseum. Gray danced with danger from the start with stuff not nearly as crisp as just five nights before when he matched zeros with the 2011 AL MVP and Cy Young Award winner. This time, Verlander didn’t allow a baserunner until Josh Reddick drew a one-out walk in the sixth – but the no-hit bid remained until Cespedes’ single the next inning. The hardest hit ball was a fly to the center-field warning track by Stephen Vogt in the sixth.

ST. LOUIS – Carpets still were drying out from a champagne bath and a few players looked bleary eyed after a workout at Busch Stadium. A day after advancing, there wasn’t much time to rest for the St. Louis Cardinals. “Obviously, it was a great celebration and a lot of fun,” reliever John Axford said Thursday. “The clubhouse guys, I don’t know if they even went home.” The Los Angeles Dodgers don’t have home-field advantage in the NL Championship Series, but they got a few extra days to savor early postseason success. Zack Greinke was getting ready to go in Game 5, then went on stand-by, and now he guards against feeling too good in the opener tonight. “Once we won it, it was just kind of make the best adjustments possible,” Greinke said. “I mean, there’s not much you can really do.” No telling which side will benefit, the team on a roll or the team coming off a break. Joe Kelly, who flourished as a replacement starter with St. Louis and gets the call for Game 1, was elevated to the fifth starting spot and then waited almost two weeks before actually getting on the mound.

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Joe Kelly throws during practice for the NLCS on Thursday in St. Louis. The Cardinals have announced Kelly will be their starter for Game 1 tonight against the Los Angeles Dodgers in St. Louis. Zack Greinke is scheduled to start for the Dodgers. “You could be laid off for eight days and come out and play absolutely the best baseball you’ve ever done,” Kelly said. “You could come out and play the next day and not have a good game. This is all about execution.” As a youth, Kelly was a budding skateboard star with a sponsor. Like other Cardinals youngsters, he’s seemed oblivious to the pressure. “It’s Game 1 of the NLCS, but me being me, I’m going to go out there and just pitch like

it’s another game,” he said. The staff aces won’t go until later in the best-of-seven series, with the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw set for Game 2 and the Cardinals’ Adam Wainwright ready for Game 3. Rookie Michael Wacha, who has flirted with no-hitters in his past two starts, goes in Game 2 for St. Louis. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said he probably will announce the rest of the starting assignments on game day. The series matches a large-

ly homegrown team seeking its second World Series appearance in three years against one that’s been among the biggest spenders trying to get there for the first time in a quarter-century. The Dodgers spent well over $200 million to put together their team. “I think the payroll gets thrown out there in general, and then it becomes an expectation,” Mattingly said. “You’ve got these high-profile guys, you’ve got big names, guys making big money, you’re supposed to win.” They won the NL West for the first time in four years, then eliminated the Braves in four games in the NLDS. Greinke is among a half-dozen Dodgers making $15 million or more and Mattingly said it’s like having a pair of aces. “So it’s nice to start a series with a guy of his caliber,” Mattingly said. “In this environment, it’s nice to have those two right on top.” St. Louis led the NL with 97 wins, including a major league-high 33 by rookie pitchers. The Cardinals’ payroll is at about $119 million outlay, a large chunk going to players like Chris Carpenter, Jason Motte and Rafael Furcal who didn’t make it to opening day and another, Jaime Garcia, who was sidelined for the year in mid-May.

Gobble tov! American Jews ready for Thanksgivukkah


By LEANNE ITALIE The Associated Press

t’s a turkey. It’s a menorah. It’s Thanksgivukkah! An extremely rare convergence this year of Thanksgiving and the start of Hanukkah has created a frenzy of Talmudic proportions. There’s the number crunching: The last time it happened was 1888, or at least the last time since Thanksgiving was declared a federal holiday by President Lincoln, and the next time may have Jews lighting their candles from spaceships 79,043 years from now, by one calculation. There’s the commerce: A 9-year-old New York boy invented the “Menurkey” and raised more than $48,000 on Kickstarter for his already trademarked, Turkey-shaped menorah. Woodstock-inspired T-shirts have a turkey perched on the neck of a guitar and implore “8 Days of Light, Liberty & Latkes.” The creators nabbed the trademark to “Thanksgivukkah.” Songs have popped up with lyrics like these from “The Ballad of Thanksgivukkah”: “Imagine Judah Maccabee, sitting down to roast turkey and passing the potatoes to Squanto ...” Rabbi David Paskin, the song’s co-writer and co-head of the Kehillah Schechter Academy in Norwood, Mass., proudly declares his the Jewish day school nearest Plymouth Rock. Let’s not forget the food mash-ups commemorating the staying power of the Pilgrims and the fighting prowess of the Jews, along with the miracle of one night’s oil lasting eight days. Pumpkin latkes, apple-cranberry sauce and deep-fried turkey, anyone? “It’s pretty amazing to me that in this country we

can have rich secular and rich religious celebrations and that those of us who live in both worlds can find moments when they meet and can really celebrate that convergence. There are a lot of places in the world where we would not be able to do that,” Paskin said. The lunisolar nature of the Jewish calendar makes Hanukkah and other religious observances appear to drift slightly from year to year when compared to the U.S., or Gregorian, calendar. But much of the intrigue over Hanukkah this year is buried deep in the history of Thanksgiving itself, which hasn’t always been fixed in the same spot. That caused some initial confusion over Thanksgivukkah, aka Turkukkah. In 1863, Lincoln declared Thanksgiving as the last Thursday in November (the month sometimes has five of those) and the holiday remained there until President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed a joint resolution of Congress fixing it as the fourth Thursday, starting in 1942. Since 1863, Thanksgiving and the first full day of Hanukkah on the Gregorian calendar have not overlapped. Jewish practice calls for the first candle of eight-day Hanukkah to be lit the night before Thanksgiving Day this year, so technically Thanksgivukkah falls on the “second candle” night. And then there’s Texas. Before 1863, each state decided on its own date for Thanksgiving. As late as 1956, Texans were still chowing down on turkey and stuffing a week later than everyone else, according to a history put together by of the ChabadLubavitch movement of Hasidic Jews. That means Jews in that state might have also been lighting their first Hanukkah candle in 1945 and 1956. There’s more early Thanksgiving lore and 2,000 years of calendar tinkering involving the Jewish

calendar, but we’ll spare you. Jonathan Mizrahi, a quantum physicist at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, N.M., puzzled on the convergence last January, in a blog post with buzzed-about line graphs picked up by others online. More than 100,000 people have visited the blog since then, he said, including some who questioned his calculations and prompted him to post a couple of clarifications. He hadn’t made it clear that he was referring to the “second candle” night of Hanukkah, and he hadn’t realized Thanksgiving had shifted from the last to the fourth Thursday of November. The interest, Mizrahi said, “has truly blown me away. I’ve just been totally flabbergasted at the number of responses.” While the whole thing is lots of fun, is there anything truly cosmic happening here? Well, there’s Comet ISON, which is scheduled to pass close by the sun on Thanksgiving this year and may provide a nice show – possibly even during daylight. Or not, since comets can’t always be counted on. Mom-of-two Dana Gitell, who lives outside Boston, partnered with an artist and the Jewish gift site Moderntribe to create and sell souvenir T-shirts, cards and a poster. She sees a happy and meaningful coincidence and 10 percent of proceeds will go to Mazon, a Jewish hunger relief organization. “Cosmic? It’s just a day when Jews and the rest of America are celebrating on the same day,” she said. “It’s an opportunity for us to really celebrate the Jewish American experience, and to give thanks in America for the religious freedom we enjoy here, and for making the Jewish American experience possible.”

8RELIGION BRIEFS Dalai Lama speaks to thousands near Atlanta ATLANTA – The Dalai Lama has told an audience in suburban Atlanta to focus on love and to be grateful for all that they have. The Tibetan Buddhist leader spoke to thousands of people Tuesday at the Gwinnett Center arena. The focus of this visit is “secular ethics,” which is described as a system of shared principles that go beyond religious differences while still respecting and valuing the significance of religion in people’s lives. The Dalai Lama has held the title of presidential distinguished professor at Emory University since October 2007 and has visited Emory’s campus five times.

The Dalai Lama is scheduled to participate in a series of lectures and panel discussions through Thursday.

Congressional chaplains pray for intervention WASHINGTON – Can prayer move an unmovable object, like the U.S. Congress? As the federal government remains partially shut down and about to hit a debt ceiling, Senate Chaplain Barry Black continues to appeal to God in his daily invocations. Before Tuesday’s Senate session, he prayed, “May the tirades of majorities or minorities be equally impotent to sway our lawmakers from doing what is best for America.” He also prayed that the senators will be ethical “as they strive to match

their words with deeds.” On the other side of the Capitol, House Chaplain Father Patrick Conroy prayed that lawmakers will use the power they have to help their constituents “who possess little or no power, and whose lives are made all the more difficult by a failure to work out serious differences.”

Pittsburgh Diocese sues again over mandates PITTSBURGH – The Roman Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh is suing the federal government again seeking to overturn a looming requirement that employers offer contraceptive coverage in employee health plans. A judge in November dismissed a previous lawsuit, saying the diocese has not been

harmed by the legislation and that the government had promised to take steps to address religious objections. But the new federal lawsuit claims such promises have proven to be “empty words” – and said the final regulations that take effect Jan. 1 are worse than the proposed regulations that prompted last year’s lawsuit. The Department of Justice, which will defend the new suit, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Mormons pushing church stance on homosexuality SALT LAKE CITY – The Mormon church’s stance on homosexuality has softened considerably since it was one of the leading forces behind California’s Proposition 8.

The Utah-based Church of Latter-day Saints launched a new website this year encouraging more compassion toward gays. It also implores gay members to stay in the faith, and clarifies that Mormon leaders would no longer necessarily counsel gays to marry people of the opposite sex. In May, church leaders

backed the Boy Scouts’ policy allowing gays in the ranks. But church apostle Dallin Oaks reiterated this past weekend during a biannual conference that human laws cannot “make moral what God has declared immoral.”

Daily Chronicle /

Nice young men won’t get far without manners Dear Abby: I have acquired two teenage stepsons. They are good young men, mature, responsible, active in community service and good in school and sports. My challenge is their table manners. They were never taught any! They use their utensils like shop tools, lifting food using fork and knife together to transfer huge bites from plate to mouth. They use a bread knife to cut a pancake as if it were a tough steak. They slouch over the table to get their faces as near the plate as possible, while leaning on the table with one or both elbows. They don’t know where to place cutlery when setting the table, and have their napkins in their lap only if a restaurant server

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips discreetly places it there. Their mother shows no concern about their uncouth manners. I’m worried that when they eventually go out into the world, they’ll be perceived as having no class when they are actually nice young men. Their ignorance of table manners could cost them relationships, jobs and promotions. What to do? – San Antonio Stepdad Dear Stepdad: Your wife may have felt she was teaching her sons more important lessons than table manners; things like character and responsi-

bility. However, you have a point. People DO make negative judgments about people who have poor table manners – and it could be detrimental to them in the future. That’s why you should discuss this with their mother, if you haven’t already, and enlist her help in talking to the boys in a nonconfrontational way and explaining your concern. In the interest of your relationship with them, this must not seem like you are critical of them, nor should it turn into an adversarial situation or it could have a negative impact on your marriage. If it is to succeed, there must be cooperation from everyone. Dear Abby: I am almost 30, and when we have family

get-togethers several times a year, it seems like they make a point to leave me out of pictures. My mom and sister lost quite a bit of weight recently, and my brothers and cousin are attractive people. It seems like they’re trying to keep the “fat one” out of the photo, and it hurts my feelings. Recently, a cousin came into town and made copies of two excellent pictures of my mom and sister and posted them online. Again, I was not included. What should I do? I am depressive anyway, and these obvious oversights are upsetting me. – Left Out in Tennessee Dear Left Out: Talk with your mother and sister to confirm if what you suspect is happening is true. It’s pos-

sible your mother and sister are so proud of their weight loss they want to show it off. (There are ways to pose family members in photographs so their weight isn’t apparent.) As to the visiting cousin, there may be such a marked change in their appearance that he/she thought it was worth posting on the Internet. A problem with depression is that quietly brooding solves nothing, and it often causes people to overeat. Because your depression is chronic, please consider discussing it with your health care provider because interventions are available.

• Write Dear Abby at www. or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Help your doctor find time to treat you right Dear Dr. K: I like my doctor and I trust his judgment, but I don’t feel he really listens to me or explains things. What can I do, besides look for another doctor? Dear Reader: Like every doctor, I am a patient as well as a doctor. I think I can see things from both perspectives. Let me respond first as a patient. If you like and trust your doctor, I’d recommend that you put him to the test before looking for another. At your next visit, gently but firmly make certain things clear: Suppose he says something you don’t understand. Tell him you’re sorry, but you don’t understand. Ask him to

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff explain it again. Suppose he recommends a particular diagnostic test or treatment. If you’re concerned about the risk, the cost or something else, tell him that, and explain why. If he mentions risks, be sure he tells you how likely the risks are. (Don’t expect a precise answer, but ask for a rough estimate: one in 10, one in 100, one in 1,000?) Suppose, after hearing the answer, you don’t like the doctor’s recommended test

or treatment. Then ask him if there are any other options that you both should consider. Suppose you’re dealing with a potentially serious illness, or a test or treatment that has serious risks – a diagnosis of cancer, or a major operation, for example. If you’re not sure you agree with the option your doctor has suggested, you can always seek a second opinion. This is not something to do lightly: At least initially, you won’t have the same level of trust for another physician, since you won’t know him or her as well as you know your doctor. Suppose, despite your gentle prodding, it becomes clear

your doctor just isn’t interested in having you involved in making decisions about your medical care. It happens. In that case, I’d start looking for another doctor. Now let me respond as a doctor. One of the hardest things for us is finding the time to do everything we need to do during a patient visit, given the time we have. That includes time for listening and explaining. You can help your doctor by making your time with him as efficient as possible. If you have a chronic illness, remember the questions your doctor asks you at most visits. Be ready to answer the same questions at this

visit. For example, if you have diabetes, think about whether you have symptoms that could indicate heart problems, such as chest pain or feeling as though you might pass out. If you tend to forget what the doctor said at the visit, consider bringing someone with you – a spouse, adult child or friend. That person can help make sure certain questions get asked. He or she can also take notes while you speak with your doctor. The time you spend with your doctor is precious to both of you: come prepared to make the most of your visit.

Your brother should pay for his bad behavior Dr. Wallace: My 15-year-old brother had to stay with my husband and me for a week while my parents went out of town. He is an honors student and considered a “good kid,” so we were glad to have him for a visit – that is until we received our telephone bill. It seems that Little Brother had been calling a porn line and discussing sex with a young lady who did everything possible to keep him on the line so her “company” would get more money. In six days, he made a ton of calls for a lot of money. There is little chance that my parents can afford this amount of money and, of course, neither can my brother even though he does receive a $15 weekly allowance.

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace I called the phone company and explained that our underage brother was responsible for the calls, but they said it didn’t matter who made the calls; we were responsible for the bill. We can pay it, but it will put a crimp in our budget. Since I know for sure that my parents can’t pay for my brother’s misadventure, should I even bother to inform them? All my brother had to say was, “Sorry, it won’t happen again.” I’m sure it won’t! – Sister, Reno, Nev. Sister: Tell your parents what happened and show them the phone bill. Let them

TODAY – A calculated approach to life will help you stay on top of your game in the year ahead. Situations will have a tendency to spin out of control if you aren’t precise and flexible. Refrain from initiating change, but be willing to accept the inevitable and turn any lemons you encounter into lemonade. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – Keep your thoughts to yourself and your emotions in check, but don’t let anyone bully you either. Back away from controversy and gravitate toward making a positive difference in your community. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – New people, places and pleasures are heading your direction. Explore how different people live or what they can offer, and you will discover unusual ways to enhance your lifestyle. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – Don’t let emotions cloud your point of view regarding work that has to be completed. You must finish one thing before starting another. A personal problem is due to dishonesty. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Keep heading down a path you are familiar with, and you will reach the destination of choice. You may be enticed by detours, but they will only diminish your success. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – Follow your dreams and refuse to let anyone restrict your attempt to achieve happiness. What you need may differ from what others want for you, but in the end it’s your choice. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – Get all the facts before you make a move. A relationship may not be as it appears, but false accusations will not get you any closer to the truth. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – Gather your thoughts and the information you need. You will make a wise move if you are organized and prepared. Moderation must be enforced, even if someone encourages you to do or spend more. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – Do your due diligence, and you won’t be disappointed with the results you get. A serious and loyal partnership will improve a journey you decide to take. Knowledge rules the day. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – You may be up for a disappointment or loss pertaining to your home or assets. Re-evaluate an agreement you have with someone and question the sincerity and integrity of certain parties. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – Plan to have some fun today. Indulge in events that interest you. Share your thoughts with unorthodox individuals willing to contribute and help you put your plans into motion. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – Take care of your responsibilities early so you can enjoy what life has to offer. Love and romance coupled with travel should highlight your day. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Socialize and take part in community events that will familiarize you with what’s out there. Don’t let a personal incident confuse you. Make a decision based on facts.

know that you and your husband will pay the bill, but that you expect your brother to reimburse you by paying you a percentage of his allowance on a regular basis. Tell them you expect full payment even if it takes several years. And be sure to share this exciting news with your brother. Dr. Wallace: I’m 16 and have been dating for about a year. In that time, I’ve gone out with three guys, but only the guy I’m dating now could be considered a somewhat serious relationship. My problem is my dad. All three guys are very nice. None of them do drugs or alcohol and two of the three are good students. The other guy is average in grades but a superb athlete (he’s the one I’m seeing now). My dad


should be happy that I’m dating nice guys instead of druggies and troublemakers, but he’s not. He manages to find things wrong with all of them. One is too short, another is the son of one of his bosses (that’s real bad) and another has no ambition. I need encouragement from him, not pessimism. My mom likes all three of the guys and, whenever my dad complains about my taste in guys, she tells him he can’t get it through his head that his “little girl” isn’t little anymore. The guys all like my mom, but stay away from my dad. What can I do to get my dad thinking like my mom? – Nameless, Des Moines, Iowa. Nameless: No matter whom you date, Dad will

probably find some reason to complain about him. That’s actually a fairly common trait of fathers, who see their prime role as protecting their daughters. They also remember how they were as young men! The only way Dad’s going to relax is for him to get to know the guy you’re dating. The better he knows him, the more likely he will be to accept him. Invite your parents to various activities with you and your date. A school athletic event or a Saturday lunch would be a great start. In time, Dad will start saying good things about the guy you’re dating, if he’s as nice as you say he is.

BRIDGE Phillip Alder

Good guessing, poor thinking Our man A.N. Other continues in good form: “Anybody could get rich if he could guess the exact moment at which a piece of junk becomes an antique.” Any bridge player could get rich if he could work out the exact moment to make an unusual play that is correct. In this deal, West leads his heart six against three no-trump: jack, king, seven. East returns the heart three, covered by South’s four. How should West analyze the position? North was right to blaze straight into three no-trump. Presumably, he is putting eight winners down in the dummy. He needs only for partner to be able to win a trick before the defenders have taken five. Admittedly, here South rates to have club length because he did not show a major or raise diamonds, and five diamonds might make when three notrump fails. But do not spend your life looking for that distribution. It will arise only rarely. If this deal were played in a tournament, almost every declarer would make his contract. West would automatically take the second trick with his heart eight, cash the heart ace, and find himself stuck on lead after taking the fourth trick with his heart 10. South would win the last nine tricks. The bidding marks South with at most three hearts because he did not respond one heart. So it cannot hurt West to take the second trick with his heart 10. Then after cashing the ace, he can continue with his eight, which East can overtake with his nine to cash the five to defeat the contract.

Rob Winner -

Sycamore defenders Jack Dargis (34), Brett Weaver (4) and Brandon Nelson (65) combine for a tackle of Geneseo running back Brandon Mizlo in the first quarter of their game in Sycamore on Sept. 20. Rochelle running backs Marquez Felix and Evan White have combined for 22 touchdowns in six games for the Hubs, who face Sycamore today.

Run defense will be key for Sycamore on road against Rochelle 2013 Sycamore run defense


Week 1 vs. Lincoln-Way West: 182 yards, 2 touchdowns allowed Week 2 vs. North Lawndale: 104 yards, 0 touchdowns allowed Week 3 vs. DeKalb: 266 yards, 4 touchdowns allowed Week 4 vs. Geneseo: 99 yards, 0 touchdowns allowed Week 5 vs. Ottawa: 50 yards, 0 touchdowns allowed Week 6 vs. Morris: 263 yards, 3 touchdowns allowed


ochelle’s offensive plan is simple, yet painstakingly hard to stop. The Hubs will run, run and run some more, grinding out a couple of yards at a time and wearing defenses down. The clock runs, the game shortens and crowds are put in a time warp, forgetting about the spread offenses that have become all the rage in football. Rochelle has rode that offense to a 5-1 record this season, with its only loss coming to undefeated Kaneland in Week 5. Its running attack centers on tailbacks Marquez Felix and Evan White. Felix has rushed for 787 yards and 10 touchdowns while White has 720 yards and 12 touchdowns. It’s a formula that requires a defense to have sure tacklers. “When you’re tackling, you have to run your feet because a two-yard gain turns into a four-yard gain for them because the backs run so well,” Sycamore coach Joe Ryan said. “That’s great for them.” As conference rivals, Sycamore is

four of the past five against the Hubs, the only loss occurring in the second

I got another team to do it against before Rochelle,” senior safety Michael Stinnett said. “We have some experience from that. We know what we’re doing.

Daily Chronicle /

Hiawatha faces must-win game in Week 7 Daily Chronicle sports editor Ross Jacobson and sports reporter Steve Nitz spend their days covering the area’s sports scene. Occasionally, they give their viewpoints on those local sports. In this installment of their Take 2 column, they discuss if Week 7 features must-win games for some area teams. Jacobson: Steve, for the first time all season our area teams combined for a losing record, going only 2-3 in Week 6 with Sycamore and Kaneland remaining undefeated. But with both of them having already clinched playoff berths, we’ll turn our attention first to the other three area teams, all of which are 3-3. A team needs five

wins to be playoff eligible. Is Week 7 must-win territory for Hiawatha, DeKalb and Genoa-Kingston if they have hopes of making it to the postseason? Nitz: The only team I really think faces a “must-win” game this week is Hiawatha. This is due to the fact the Hawks have to deal with 5-1 Rockford Christian Life next week. The Eagles’ defeated 4-2 Alden-Hebron, whom the Hawks play Saturday, 56-0. Rockford Christian Life also played unbeaten Ottawa Marquette tough, losing by just 12 points. Considering how tough an opponent the Eagles will be, I’d say Hiawatha needs a victory this week.

TAKE 2 Ross Jacobson and Steve Nitz face off In the case of DeKalb and Genoa-Kingston, I believe both teams have a shot at defeating their last two opponents. The Barbs play at Yorkville and host Rochelle, while G-K does get unbeaten Harvard in Week 8 but visits Marengo the final week of the season. Jacobson: Agreed. Hiawatha has the toughest schedule remaining out of those three teams. Don’t for-

get, they have to play a 4-2 Chicago Hope team in Week 9 as well. It certainly won’t be easy for the Hawks, who have been banged up all season, to get to five wins after the loss to Luther North last week. While it may not be “mustwin,” I do believe this is a huge game for DeKalb because it’s at home. The Barbs are hosting a Morris team that is down compared to previous seasons, plus DeKalb is

coming off a home loss to Kaneland. A loss would send them on the road to Yorkville, where the Foxes will likely be seeking a fifth win and a playoff berth. It’s never easy facing a desperate and motivated team. With that being said, the most important area game of the year might be the Week 8 match-up between Sycamore and Kaneland. Any chance either of them aren’t undefeated after tonight? Nitz: Kaneland isn’t losing to Yorkville, although I don’t think it would be a complete shock to see the Hubs upset the Spartans. Rochelle is a consistently good program that is off to a good start, with its only loss coming

against Kaneland. The Hubs’ running game is always good, so Sycamore will have its hands full. However, I still see the Knights and Spartans heading into next week unbeaten. Jacobson: Agreed. Three years ago, Sycamore and Kaneland met in Week 8 in a battle of 7-0 squads. I think we’re in for the same scenario. The Knights have overcome an injury to senior RB Jesse Balluff in recent weeks while the Spartans continue to be impressive on both sides of the ball. That should be a fantastic game next week, but I’m sure some surprising story lines will emerge out of Week 7 first.

Rochelle’s run-oriented offense shortens games • RUN DEFENSE Continued PREP FOOTBALL 1

Sean King for Shaw Media

Kaneland’s Isaac Swithers (23) carries the ball against Rochelle at Kaneland High School in Maple Park, IL on Friday, September 27, 2013. Swithers has replaced injured running back Jesse Balluff, who tore his ACL, in the backfield. Kaneland’s offensive line is now healthy and has helped Swithers rush for 194 yards on 35 carries.

Ryan said although Rochelle and Geneseo possess similar styles, the Hubs do some things a bit differently, which forces Sycamore to change up their blueprint as well. But the overall defensive themes remain the same. “We have to be fundamentally sound,” Stinnett said, “and disciplined on the back sides and reading our keys.” One way to combat Rochelle’s slow-it-down approach is to get on top early. The Spartans jumped out to a 12-0 lead in the first half and also led, 26-7, in the fourth quarter of last year’s 12-point win at home. In comparison to the Hubs’ healthy running stats, quarterback Angel Burciaga has only attempted 41 passes all season, completing 18 of them. Rochelle’s run game not only has an effect on a

“It limits your possessions. No matter how well you defend them, and it’s very dificult to defend them, that clock’s running” Joe Ryan Sycamore coach defense but the opposing offense as well. Sycamore’s offense, which has averaged 39 points per game, will likely find itself with fewer chances and less time to get on the scoreboard. In last year’s match-up, Sycamore didn’t even run an offensive play during the third quarter. “It limits your possessions. No matter how well you defend them, and it’s very difficult to defend them, that clock’s running,” Ryan said. “It really puts a value to your offensive possession. It really can shorten a game.”


Swithers, healthy O-line bolster Kaneland offense By ANTHONY ZILIS MAPLE PARK – As word trickled through the team after running back Jesse Balluff sent out a text to a few teammates that he’d be out for the season with a torn ACL three weeks ago, the emotional hit was palpable. After the third week of his senior season, the elected captain and Daily Chronicle Player of the Year candidate would play football for Kaneland no more. Junior Isaac Swithers, who played on the sophomore team last season, replaced him, and the leadership void would have to be filled with a team effort. “It was pretty tough, because he’s been a guy that we’ve been playing with forever,” quarterback Drew David

said. “Not only is he a vocal leader, but he does stuff on the field without talking ... From then on, we haven’t really had a choice, we’ve had to deal with it.” As painful as the loss was, at least Balluff for Swithers was a one-to-one switch. The change on the offensive line that coincided with Balluff’s injury caused all sorts of shifts. Left tackle Joe Komel suffered an injury, which caused shifts all over the offensive line. Coach Tom Fedderly had to move right guard Alex Snyder to left tackle, and he moved left guard Shane Jorgenson to right guard so he could put Sam Bower in at left guard. “That was the biggest adjustment,” Fedderly said. “[Swithers] was fine, he was always repping all year, so

it wasn’t that big a deal with him, [the offensive line] was a crazy mess.” When Komel returned last week, his sore toe lent itself to playing on the right side, so he moved to right tackle, and Justin Diddell moved to left. What most teams may view as a crisis ended up being a minor blip for the Knights. They won their next three games by a combined 94 points, including a 29-point blowout of previously unbeaten Rochelle. With the offensive line now healthy, Swithers has adjusted to his new role, where he’s run for 194 yards on 35 carries. “It’s good having a big responsibility like this,” Swithers said. “Drew is really helping me out getting comfortable with the offense, the

offensive line is helping me out … Everyone knows what they’re doing, we have big size, too. [The offensive line shuffle] hasn’t really affected anything at all, because they all know what they’re doing.” Heading into the last three games of the season, Kaneland has been through their rough patch. With games against Yorkville, Sycamore and Morris left before the playoffs, the Knights’ running game appears almost as good as ever. “I was worried about it with Rochelle, but the guys did fine,” Fedderly said. “The running game was fine. I knew coming into this year that the offensive line was going to be a strong point of this team and we had a lot of depth there, but we’ve really gotten tested there the last few weeks.”

WEEK 7 PREVIEW CAPSULES Genoa-Kingston (3-3, 3-0 Big Northern East) at North Boone (3-3, 2-1 BNC East) Game time: 7 p.m. today Location: North Boone High School, 17823 Poplar Grove Road, Poplar Grove Last meeting: North Boone 21, Genoa-Kingston 14 in Week 7 of 2012 season Scouting the Vikings: North Boone, who won the BNC East last season, suffered its lone conference defeat last week against unbeaten Harvard. Quarterback Nathan Bodley is a huge part of the Vikings’ offense. North Boone isn’t afraid to throw the ball, as Bodley attempted 25 passes last week. He’s also a big part of the Vikings running game, as he’s had 18 carries in each of the past two games. What’s at stake: G-K can move one step closer to both a playoff berth and a conference title. With a win over North Boone, the Cogs won’t be in a must-win situation against unbeaten Harvard next week. – Steve Nitz,

Game time: 7:30 p.m. today Last meeting: Morris 56, DeKalb 27 in Week 7 of 2012 season Scouting the Redskins: The last time Morris was 2-4 was 2009. When the Redskins fell to that record, they then reeled off three consecutive wins to make the playoffs.

run and run some more. Evan White and Marquez Felix lead the Hubs’ potent rushing attack, which has led them to a 5-1 start. Kaneland successfully bottled up the Rochelle running game, allowing just 95 yards on 34 carries in the process of handing the Hubs their only loss of the season two weeks ago. Rochelle’s 16-point win over Yorkville was the closest by far of its five wins. What’s at stake: If Sycamore wants to show it’s the team to beat in the NI Big 12 East, it will have to win Friday and win big. Kaneland asserted its dominance by beating the previously unbeaten Hubs by 29 points. A one- or two-touchdown win will show that the Spartans are a team to be reckoned with, but it wouldn’t necessarily make them the favorite for their match-up with Kaneland next week. – Anthony Zilis,

The Hawks are prepared to match up against everything from four-wide receiver sets to loaded backfield looks with three running backs. What’s at stake: When a team hasn’t qualified for the playoffs since 1987, every Yorkville (4-2, 1-1 Northern Illinois Big 12 East) at Kaneland week takes on a must-win tone. If the Hawks’ lofty goals and the promise of a 3-1 (6-0, 2-0 NI Big 12 East) start are to be realized, this week is the biggest game of the season.
