Dave Sloan of Port Barrington and Ron Thornton of Oakwood Hills play video gambling games Sept. 26 at Hermann’s Rest A While Bar and Grill in Port Barrington. Hermann’s was one of the test sites for the state’s video gambling program and the first McHenry County establishment with the terminals.

Video gaming terminals bringing in cash for state, municipalities, bars By JOSEPH BUSTOS Three to four times a week, Ron Thornton, 44, of Oakwood Hills, sits in front of a video gaming terminal to play video poker at Hermann’s Rest A While Bar and Grill in Port Barrington with about $100 to $200 to deposit into the machine. “When I’m winning, I’m coming more,” Thornton said. On one day, he had two hands where he hit the maximum prize of $500, along with an additional turn where he won a $250 prize. When he was done playing, Thornton printed a receipt from the terminal for $1,200. “I was on fire,” he said. “There was no doubt about, it was my best day ever.” Since video gambling went live throughout the state in October, however, Thornton

It’s built into the system.” For the past year, video gambling has served as a revenue source for the state’s 2009 Illinois Jobs Now! capital program. When including

the state’s three-week testing period in September of last year through the month of August, people have inserted $614 million into the video gaming terminals. So far, $438 million has been cashed out to gamblers.

WASHINGTON – Republicans and Democrats in Congress lumbered through a day of political maneuvering Saturday while a threatened default by the Treasury crept uncomfortably closer and a partial government shutdown neared the end of its second week. “We haven’t done anything yet” by way of compromise, Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said after Senate leaders took control of efforts to end the impasse, although he and other Democrats said repeatedly there was reason for optimism.

Old woman sues children for care By KRISTEN GELINEAU The Associated Press FUSHENG, China – As the daughterin-law rolls open the rusted doors to her garage, light spills onto a small figure on a straw mattress. A curious face peers out. It’s the face of Kuang Shiying’s 94-year-old mother-in-law – better known as the little old lady who sued her own children for not taking care of her. The drama playing out inside this house reflects a wider and increasingly urgent dilemma. The world’s population is aging fast, because of longer life spans and lower birth rates, and there will soon be more old people than young for the first time in history. This has left families and governments struggling to decide: Who is responsible for the care of the elderly? A few countries, such as India, Singapore, France and Ukraine, now require adult children to financially support their parents. Twenty-nine U.S. states have similar laws, although they are rarely enforced because the government provides aid. In China, where family loyalty is a cornerstone of society, more than 1,000 parents have sued their children for financial support over the last 15 years. But in December, the government went further, amending its elder care law to require that children also support their parents emotionally. Children who don’t visit their parents can be sued – by mom

said: “For thousands of years, filial piety was China’s Medicare, Social Security and long-term care, all woven into a single family virtue.” This is the world Zhang was born into, on Aug. 15, 1919. Zhang is crying. Her father-in-law, she says, was a gambling addict with a violent temper. Yet Zhang never considered leaving – that would have made her a social outcast. Three decades later, her husband died, leaving her at the mercy of her offspring. But the world had changed. Zhang murmurs that she wants to say something, but is afraid to talk in front of her daughter-in-law. Kuang steps outside and Zhang pleads: “Don’t let her know that I told you this...” Her family locks her in this room all day. She dares not scream for help for fear she will be beaten. She pinches her cheek hard, slaps a visitor’s arm. That’s what they do to me, she says. Her bones ache. Her feet ache. The stench from the toilet bucket sickens her. All she wants is to go to a nursing home, she says. But the few nursing homes in China supply only 22 beds for every 1,000 seniors, and most families can’t afford them. Zhang has no money. She says her children took it all. She presses a filthy rag to her wet eyes. “I’m too old to go through this.”

and dad. The law pits the expectations of society against the complexities of family, and begs the question: How do you legislate love? Zhang Zefang, with her thin frame and soft smile, hardly looks like the vindictive matriarch many assume she must be. She is one of about 3,800 people in the village of Fusheng in southwest China, where the pace is slow and the atmosphere placid. But inside Kuang and Zhang’s home, there is war. Resentment hangs in the air, acrid and sharp like the stench from the urinefilled bucket next to Zhang’s bed. This is the epicenter of a family feud that erupted amid accusations of lying, of ungratefulness, of abuse and neglect and broken promises. “I never thought about whether my kids would take care of me when I was old,” Zhang says. “I just focused on taking care of them.” Inside her room, there is no heat, no window to the outside world. From the shadows, she begins to speak. It used to be in China that the idea of filial piety, or honoring your parents, was instilled from birth. A Chinese proverb calls filial piety “the first among 100 virtues,” and the ancient philosopher Confucius credited it as the bedrock of social harmony.

SAN JOSE, Calif. – From Silicon Valley to the South Pacific, counterattacks to revelations of widespread National Security Agency surveillance are taking shape, from a surge of new encrypted email programs to technology that sprinkles the Internet with red flag terms to confuse would-be snoops. Policy makers, privacy advocates and political leaders around the world have been outraged at the near weekly disclosures from former intelligence contractor Edward Snowden that expose sweeping U.S. government surveillance programs. “Until this summer, people didn’t know anything about the NSA,” said Center

Some of the tactics are more effective than others. For example, Flagger, a program that adds words like “blow up” and “pressure cooker” to web addresses that users visit, is probably more of a political statement than actually confounding intelligence agents.

He said, “The goal here is to get a critical mass of people flooding the Internet with noise and make a statement of civil disobedience.” University of Auckland associate professor Gehan Gunasekara said he’s received “overwhelming support” for his proposal to “lead the spooks in a merry dance,” visiting radical websites, setting up multiple online identities and making up hypothetical “friends.” And “pretty soon everyone in New Zealand will have to be under surveillance,” he said.

more direct strategy: by using encrypted email and browsers, he creates more smoke screens for the NSA. “Encryption loses its value as an indicator of possible malfeasance if everyone is using it,” he said. And there are now plenty of encryption programs, many new, and of varying quality. “This whole field has been made exponentially more mainstream,” said Cryptocat private instant messaging developer Nadim Kobeissi.

With medical marijuana, new jobs and attitudes The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – Patients with serious illnesses such as cancer will be able to legally use medical marijuana in Illinois when a new law takes effect next year. But that isn’t the only change the state is likely to see. The 19 other states that already legalized the medical use of marijuana also saw thousands of new jobs and shifting attitudes about the drug, says Robert Calkin, a longtime medical marijuana advocate and president and founder of the Cannabis Career Institute. Calkin was in Illinois for a series of seminars for entrepreneurs interested in working in the industry. He spoke with The Associated Press about what Illinois can expect as its law rolls out in 2014. This is an edited transcript.

number of capacities: growing, dispensary, delivery and edibles. Or maybe you’re a professional that just wants to service the cannabis industry: an attorney, electrician, an insurance agent, real estate agent. All of those people can do their own regular thing but now attract a whole new group of clients. In Rhode Island a dispensary just opened, they’re paying their grow masters $96,000 a year. Then there’s site supervisors, dispensary managers and “budtenders” who interface with the patient. All of that requires training.

Q: Do people have to be worried about legal issues?

A: If you’re in a state that has regulated marijuana and get an attorney and an accountant and follow those rules, you’ll know how to do it. Illinois people should be feeling good because they’re going to have a way to do it legally. Q: Have these laws changed attitudes about marijuana? A: It’s definitely more mainstream. Once people even see one really informed presentation on it, generally there’s a sea change. A friend told me the other day about going to give a show [about medical marijuana] to a senior group. At the beginning they’re thinking one thing and at the end they’re demanding, ‘Where’s the doctor? I want my [medical marijuana] recommendation.’ It’s the same transition with any politician. They’re against marijuana until their wife or daughter or somebody has cancer and then they see how it works and all of a sudden they’re wanting to legalize it.

State Police releases official ‘no guns’ sign SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois State Police has come up with a standard design for the signs that businesses can post warning patrons that guns are not allowed in their establishments.

Dozens arrested in child porn crackdown in Ill. SPRINGFIELD – Fifty people have been arrested on child pornography charges as part of a three-year crackdown on offenders by the Illinois Attorney

Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s office said the latest arrests came after separate raids this week in DuPage County in which one Villa Park man was charged with 10 counts of possessing child pornography and an Elmhurst man was charged with one count of possessing child pornography. Madigan’s office launched what is called Operation Glass House in 2010.

Congress feels heat on question of pay The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – When Rep. Lee Terry, R-Neb., was asked whether he’d continue to collect his paycheck during the government shutdown, he offered a defiant response: “Dang straight.” Days later, a penitent Terry changed course, telling his hometown paper, the Omaha World-Herald, that he was “ashamed” of his comments and would have his salary withheld until furloughed government workers got paid again. The reversal piqued the interest of a potential challenger and generated a front-page headline that any member of Congress would dread: “Terry sorry for putting his needs

above others.” As the partial shutdown drags on, the question of whether to take the money or not has created a quandary for many lawmakers who support their families on their government salary. With hundreds of thousands of federal workers furloughed, any member of Congress who takes a paycheck runs the risk of being accused of being out of touch while the government shutters offices and cuts services. “You’re caught between the needs of your family and your need to get re-elected,” said former Rep. Vic Fazio, D-Calif., who served during shutdowns in the 1990s. Aware of the potential political peril, dozens of lawmakers have made arrange-

ments to have their salaries set aside, donated to charity or returned to the Treasury Department. The Constitution prohibits lawmakers from withholding their own salary; they can only vote on the pay of Rep. Lee f u t u r e C o n - Terry g r e s s e s . B u t R-Neb. members can request that the Office of the Chief Administrative Officer delay their paychecks until the government reopens. Members of the House and Senate are among the highest paid officials in government, earning $174,000 a year. Congressional leaders receive

about $20,000 more a year. That’s a total cost to taxpayers of more than $258,000 a day while the government is shut down and hundreds of thousands of other federal workers have their paychecks delayed. Constitutional requirements and personal needs have created political problems for several lawmakers. Rep. Renee Ellmers, R-N.C., told WTVD-TV in Raleigh that she would continue to take her pay because “I need my paycheck. That is the bottom line.” Ellmers, whose state has a large military population, held the line for two days but then relented under pressure from local media. Terry, who represents an Omaha-based district, was dismissive of fellow lawmak-

ers who were forgoing pay or donating it to charity during the shutdown. “Whatever gets them good press. That’s all it’s going to be,” he told the World-Herald. “God bless them. But you know what? I’ve got a nice house and a kid in college, and I’ll tell you we cannot handle it. Giving our paycheck away when you still worked and earned it? That’s just not going to fly.” By last Sunday, the congressman said he had put his “needs above others in crisis. I’m ashamed of my comments. It was not leadership. It is not how I was raised.” He apologized for his “hurtful remarks when so many others are feeling the pain of Washington’s dysfunction.”

Dead loved ones’ voices victim of technology By TOM COYNE The Associated Press When her 19-year-old daughter died of injuries sustained in a Mother’s Day car crash five years ago, Lisa Moore sought comfort from the teenager’s cellphone. She would call daughter Alexis’ phone number to listen to her greeting. Sometimes she’d leave a message, telling her daughter how much she loved her. “Just because I got to hear her voice, I’m thinking ‘I heard her.’ It was like we had a conversation. That sounds crazy. It was like we had a conversation and I was OK,” the Terre Haute, Ind., resident said. Moore and her husband, Tom, have spent $1,700 over the past five years to keep their daughter’s cellphone service so they could preserve her voice. But now they’re grieving again because the voice that provided solace has been silenced as part of a Sprint upgrade.

Tom and Lisa Moore pose outside their home Thursday in Terre Haute, Ind. Tom has a graduation photo of their daughter, Alexis, tattooed on his arm. The Moores had continued to pay their daughter’s cellphone bill to preserve Alexis’s voice mail greeting following her death in 2008. But the greeting was deleted during a Sprint upgrade. “I just relived this all over again because this part of me was just ripped out again. It’s gone. Just like I’ll never ever see her again, I’ll never ever hear her voice on the telephone again,” said Lisa Moore, who discovered the deletion

when she called the number after dreaming her daughter was alive in a hospital. Technology has given families like the Moores a way to hear their loved ones’ voices long after they’ve passed, providing them some solace

during the grieving process. But like they and so many others have suddenly learned, the voices aren’t saved forever. Many people have discovered the voices unwittingly erased as part of a routine service upgrade to voice mail services. Often, the shock is sudden: One day they dial in, and the voice is inexplicably gone. A Sprint upgrade cost Angela Rivera a treasured voice mail greeting from her husband, Maj. Eduardo Caraveo, one of 13 people killed during the Fort Hood shootings in Texas in 2009. She said she had paid to keep the phone so she could continue to hear her husband’s voice and so her son, John Paul, who was 2 at the time of the shooting, could someday know his father’s voice. “Now he will never hear his dad’s voice,” she said. Jennifer Colandrea of Beacon, N.Y., complained to the Federal Communication Commission after she lost more than a half dozen voice mails

from her dead mother while inquiring about a change to her Verizon plan. Those included a message congratulating her daughter on giving birth to a baby girl and some funny messages she had saved for more than four years for sentimental reasons. “She did not like being videotaped. She did not like being photographed,” Colandrea said of her mother. “I have very little to hold onto. “My daughter will never hear her voice now.” Transferring voice mails from cellphones to computers can be done but is often a complicated process that requires special software or more advanced computer skills. People often assume the voice mail lives on the phone when in fact it lives in the carrier’s server. Verizon Wireless spokesman Paul Macchia said the company has a deal with CBW Productions that allows customers to save greetings or voice mails to CD, cassette, or MP3.

8NATION BRIEFS 3 children, mom killed in fire on Long Island SHIRLEY, N.Y. – A house fire on New York's Long Island killed three children and their mother. Suffolk County police said the victims included a 7-year-old boy and 2-year-old boy and girl twins. Police identified the mother as Jennifer McCusker. They said she appeared to have been trying to rescue the children when she died. The fire was reported at about 10:15 p.m. Friday in Shirley, about 60 miles east of New York City. Authorities said the fire appears to have started in the living room of the small home and spread quickly. One neighbor told authorities the house seemed fine one minute, then was fully engulfed in flames no more than 15 minutes later.

Partial Afghan security deal reached, Kerry says The ASSOCIATED PRESS KABUL, Afghanistan – U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Saturday said a partial agreement was reached with Afghanistan on a security accord, but the potentially deal-breaking issue of jurisdiction for American forces remains unresolved. Kerry spoke with President Hamid Karzai after a marathon series of meetings and repeated delays of his departure from Afghanistan. Both men said agreement had been reached on a series of contentious sovereignty issues and the safety of Afghan citizens at the hands of American and allied troops that had deadlocked talks in the past year. But Karzai said he would punt the issue of who has who jurisdiction for any crimes

John Kerry Hamid Karzai U.S. Secretary Afghan of State president committed by U.S. forces in Afghanistan after 2014 to a national consultative assembly of tribal elders, or Loya Jirga, that he has asked to be convened within a month. Their opinion on whether to approve or disapprove an American demand that its forces be remanded to U.S. military courts would then be sent to the Afghan parliament. “We have reached an agreement on the respect of national sovereignty, pre-

A survivor cries Saturday on the casket of her sister, who died when a fishing boat packed with 500 African migrants capsized Thursday off the island of Lampedusa, killing more than 300 passengers.

Migrant tragedies spark calls for reform The ASSOCIATED PRESS VALLETTA, Malta – Three deadly Mediterranean shipwrecks that claimed the lives of hundreds of would-be asylum-seekers fleeing war and repression sharpened calls Saturday for humanitarian corridors to allow safe passage to Europe. At least 34 people drowned in Maltese waters south of the Italian island of Lampedusa when a boat packed with hundreds of Syrians and Palestinians capsized Friday, the same day another 12 migrants died in a shipwreck off of Egypt. Those tragedies came just eight days after at least 339 Eritreans died when their boat sank within sight of Lampedusa, in one of the worst verified migrant sea tragedies on the Mediterranean. Facing unrest and persecution in Africa and the Middle East, many migrants risk the often perilous journey to Lampedusa, a gateway to Europe just 70 miles from Africa, in rickety boats procured by people smugglers who charge more than $2,200. Most are asylum seekers,

fleeing civil war in Syria or repression and mandatory conscription in Eritrea, unlike the waves of economic migrants a decade ago. The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres expressed concern that Syrians fleeing conflict have sought to reach Europe by such a perilous route, calling it “inhumane.” “They escaped bullets and bombs only to perish before they could ever claim asylum,” he said, adding that there had been reports that the vessel had been fired on shortly after departing Zwara, Libya. U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon called for action to prevent future tragedies “that places the vulnerability and human rights of migrants at the center,” while Pope Francis lamented that “too often we are blinded by our comfortable lives, and refuse to see those dying at our doorstep.” The boat in Maltese waters capsized Friday afternoon about 65 miles southeast of Lampedusa, in waters where Malta has search and rescue responsibilities.

8WORLD BRIEFS Wind, rain pound India as massive cyclone hits BEHRAMPUR, India – An immense, powerful cyclone packing destructive winds hammered eastern India early Sunday, forcing more than 500,000 people to evacuate and sending seawater surging inland. Reports of deaths and the extent of damage from Cyclone Phailin won’t become clear until after daybreak. The storm, which made landfall early Saturday night near the town of Golpalpur in Orissa state, was expected to cause large-scale power and communications outages and shut down road and rail links, officials said. Officials in both Orissa and Andhra Pradesh have been stockpiling emergency food supplies and setting up shelters. The Indian military has put some of its forces on alert, and

has trucks, transport planes and helicopters at the ready for relief operations.

Mortar shells hit near inspectors’ hotel in Syria BEIRUT – Two mortar shells hit Syria’s capital Saturday near a hotel where international chemical weapons inspectors and United Nations staff are staying, state media and a hotel guest said. In the north, clashes between rival rebel factions left nearly 50 gunmen dead in three days of fighting for control of neighborhoods in the city of Aleppo, an activist group said. An 8-year-old girl was killed and 11 people were hurt in the blasts in the upscale Abu Roumaneh area of Damascus, the SANA news agency said. One shell fell near a school and the other on the roof of a building.

venting civilian casualties, a definition for aggression and also the prevention of unilateral acts by foreign forces. We reached an agreement on that, but the issue of jurisdiction for foreign forces is above the authority of the Afghan government and that is up to the Afghan people and the Loya Jirga,” Karzai said. Kerry responded that any decision made by the Loya Jirga and parliament would be respected, but if the jurisdiction issue was not resolved there would be no agreement. In Iraq, a similar deal fell apart after U.S. officials were unable to reach an agreement with the Iraqis on the same issue that would have allowed a small training and counterterrorism force to remain there. The United States completely pulled out of Iraq after the deal collapsed.

Video gambling brings about social concerns By JOSEPH BUSTOS When the state and municipalities considered whether to allow video gambling as a revenue source, there were people who voiced concerns about gambling addiction and other social ills. Many people said crime would increase because of the expansion in gambling, but municipalities haven’t seen that. Lake in the Hills Village Administrator Gerald Sagona said he was not aware of any problems brought to the village because of video gambling. “No one is forced to play. ... It’s the same as the lottery,” Sagona said. “A lot of people buy lottery tickets, which is a form of gambling, too.” There also are concerns about addiction problems. The Illinois Council on Problem Gambling receives 120 to 130 calls a month to its hotline. However, in the council’s August report, Administrator Bill Johnson said that only three of the callers identified video gambling as the issue. The first call the council received about video gambling was in February, Johnson said. “At this point, it’s relatively new,” he said. The council helps connect people with resources or avenues for treatment to help them with gambling addiction. The state’s gambling addiction hotline, which receives about 100 calls a month, has received 30 calls related to video gambling since July 1, when the state began tracking video gambling calls, Department of Human Services spokeswoman Januari Smith said. “Illinois predicted there would be an increase based on trends in other states where video gambling has been implemented and an increase in help-seekers calling the helpline had been recorded,” Smith said in an email. “Currently the data collected in Illinois on video gambling is not sufficient to determine an abso-

lute increase or decrease.” There are people who still have concerns about the social effects of gambling. Kathy Gilroy is a Villa Park resident, but she has attended local meetings, including those of the Woodstock and McHenry city councils, where she spoke about the problems video gambling can bring. Gilroy said casinos have self-exclusion programs, where people could have themselves put on a list to keep them out of casinos. “What’s to keep them from going to the local pizza parlor that has slot machines in it?” Gilroy said. She said that people with a gambling addiction can ruin their family financially, might commit white-collar crime such as embezzlement, or write bad checks. People who spend their money on gambling might not spend as much on groceries or other expenses, which would hurt other businesses, Gilroy said. “Money isn’t dropping from heaven, it’s being repurposed,” Gilroy said. Priscilla Zoller, 54, of Port Barrington, gambles on the Hermann’s Rest A While Bar and Grill video gambling terminals with a strict $20 budget. Concerns about people having addictions to losing their paychecks are legitimate, Zoller said. “I’ve seen people come in here that just keep putting money in, hit the cash station, and go back to gambling, hit the cash station again ... and that’s not good,” she said.

‘Any cities that don’t have it should have it’ • GAMING

The public share

Continued from page A1 The rest of the money, about $175.7 million, has been split among the owners of the establishments with terminals, video gaming operators, the state and municipalities where video gambling is allowed. Inside of Hermann’s Rest A While, there are five video gambling terminals, the maximum allowed for an establishment. Hermann’s was one of the test sites for the state before the Illinois Gaming Board went live with video gambling in places that serve alcohol, truck stops, and fraternal and veterans establishments. For bar owner Wayne Krcmar, the five terminals have been a financial windfall. Since September of last year, his bar has brought in $75,000 from video gambling. “I absolutely love it,” Krcmar said. “It’s wonderful; there’s never been a hassle, no problems.” The money, which Krcmar keeps in a separate account from revenue for food and drinks, has helped pay for a new roof on his building, a walk-in cooler and beer vending system, a flat-screen television behind the bar and new flooring, he said. Those investments cost about $17,000. He also used the money to pay his property-tax bill this year. “Any cities that don’t have it should have it,” Krcmar said. “It hasn’t brought in riffraff, and we haven’t had any problems. It’s an asset.” More and more establishments are looking to add terminals. As of Sept. 20, more than 1,800 places around the state have applications pending with the state gaming board. The owners of those establishments have to go through criminal background checks and get fingerprinted, said Gene O’Shea, spokesman for the gaming board. Marcy Paschky, the bar manager at Hermann’s, said the terminals serve as entertainment for the customers. She said there are people from towns that don’t have video gambling who come to Hermann’s. “The people who want to gamble are finding a place to do it,” Paschky said. “Apparently people had money, they’re paying it in. ... They’re liking this. They’re coming out to do it. And now there’s enough to go around.” Bars and restaurants also have to compete for customers’ food and drink dollars. “People aren’t out as much, [and] aren’t drinking as much when they are out,” Paschky said. “You have to do more and more to

A share of the revenue from video gaming terminals is distributed to the state and local municipalities where they are allowed. Here are the revenue amounts from September 2012 through August 2013: • Algonquin – $2,197.28 • Carpentersville – $7,582.72 • Fox Lake – $66,085.76 • Fox River Grove – $12,493.81 • Harvard – $22,405.51 • Huntley – $12,472.52 • Johnsburg – $38,451.46 • Lake in the Hills – $11,866.01 • Lakemoor – $11,066.29 • Marengo – $24,187.64 • McCullom Lake – $9,329.26 • McHenry – $64,453.52 • Port Barrington – $22,011.35 • Richmond – $6,766.47 • Spring Grove – $5,582.55 • Municipalities around the state – $8,787,752.71 • State – $43,927.563.72

Voice your opinion Have you ever gambled on a video terminal? Vote online at draw them in. Hire a band, hire a karaoke. Things cost more and more to get them in the door.” The amount of money being generated by the video gaming terminals has led to a push this year from business owners in towns where video gambling initially was banned. Algonquin, which at first didn’t allow the terminals in the village, permitted them after a six-month review of video gambling in other communities. Money the village receives from the terminals is slated to be used for parks and recreation capital improvements in the village, said Mike Kumbera, assistant to the village manger. Cary is considering whether to allow video gambling within its borders. The village decided in 2010 to ban the revenue source. “It was new at the time, we didn’t have any history or data to make a decision on what would be in the best interest for the village of Cary,” said Village President Mark Kownick, a trustee at the time. “It was the fear of the unknown.” Kownick said now he is on the fence about video gambling. Cary could have six or seven establishments with the terminals if the Village Board decided to permit video gambling, Kownick said. Those establishments have asked the Village Board to reverse its position on video gambling.

“When an establishment wants something, you want to make sure they have everything to help them succeed,” Kownick said. “If our establishments came to us and said, ‘I want to have video gambling to enhance our company, to enhance the draw to my establishment [for] people who are waiting for something to do,’ I would have bought into that a lot sooner.” As for how the village would use the revenue if it allowed video gaming, that has yet to be determined, but Kownick doesn’t see video gambling as helping balance a budget. “I’m not looking at some of these novelty items to offset some of our costs,” Kownick said. “That could go away. I want to build long-sustaining revenue sources for the village of Cary.” Lake in the Hills was one of the first towns to allow video gambling, well before the machines were set up and went live. “The wave of gambling was coming,” Village Administrator Gerald Sagona said. Since video gambling went live, the village has seen nearly $12,000 in revenue from it added to the general fund, which pays for the police department, public works and general administration, among other things. Only Moretti’s Ristorante and Pizzeria had video gaming in Lake in the Hills in the last year. Recently, the American Legion Post 1231 was approved by the village to have video gaming terminals. Stella’s, a planned video gambling cafe, plans to open in the village. In McCullom Lake, the village plans to use its video gambling revenue to resurface McCullom Lake Road. In Fox River Grove, the village’s video gambling share is being used for its tree replacement program, Village Administrator Karl Warwick said. “It’s something we need with emerald ash borer taking several trees away in the village,” Warwick said. As for long-term use of the video gambling revenue, Fox River Grove has yet to decide what to do with the money, Warwick said. The city of McHenry authorized video gambling in July 2012. Since it went live, $4.88 million has been put into the machines and $3.59 million has been cashed out to gamblers, according to state documents. Of the $1.29 million in gambling losses by players, the city received about $64,500, all of which goes into the city’s general fund. “It’s a lot of money,” Deputy City Administrator Doug Martin said of the revenue from the terminals. “I think in the future, there will be more interest in them.”

Revenue from gambling helps pay for local projects By JOSEPH BUSTOS The state legalized video gambling in 2009 as part of its $31 billion Illinois Jobs Now! capital plan. It was expected to bring in between $288 million and $534 million a year to help pay off the 20year bonds for the capital plan. The state had to borrow $13 billion for the Illinois Jobs Now! plan. Other revenue sources included increased motor vehicle fees, new sales taxes on candy, coffee, sweetened tea, grooming and hygiene products, and a liquor tax. Among the projects the capital

plan helped pay for are constructing the Algonquin Route 31 Western Bypass, which is expected to help alleviate traffic in downtown Algonquin; replacing a roof at West Elementary School in Crystal Lake; and removing asbestos from Alden-Hebron High School. The state Board of Education was able to start a School Maintenance Project Grant program, which provides up to $50,000 in matching grants to school districts for the maintenance or upkeep of school buildings. Among the local school districts that received money during the initial round of projects was Fox River Grove District 3.

Last year, District 3 performed $122,000 worth of capital projects, including replacing a curtain and matting in the gym, replacing cafeteria tables, and replacing the fire alarm system at Algonquin Road Elementary School. The district received a $50,000 reimbursement from the state, which allowed it to move up some projects on its five-year capital outlay plan, Superintendent Tim Mahaffy said. “It helped this year [because] we were able to do our roofing project,” Mahaffy said. “When you get the capital money, it allows you to do a little more.” McHenry may receive $700,000

in a Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity grant through the capital bill to help pay for the proposed Huntersville subdivision sanitary sewer connection project. A plan to put in sewer lines that would be available for residents to connect to if their septic systems fail would cost about $700,000, McHenry Public Works Director Jon Schmitt said. “If we didn’t have this opportunity for this grant, it would be dead in the water,” Schmitt said. Fox River Grove was slated to receive $200,000 from the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity in capital bill fund-

ing. The village spent that amount to help pay to extend utilities along County Line Road and expand the shoulder on the road in preparation for the construction of a public works facility. So far Fox River Grove has received about half of the money for the project. It is in the process of submitting paperwork to receive the rest, Village Administrator Karl Warwick said. “It saves us a couple hundred thousand dollars to extend utilities to that site,” Warwick said. If the village doesn’t build on the site, “it makes the property more valuable and viable because utilities are already there.”

Egypt not expected to be hit hard by American aid cuts The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – The U.S. decision to suspend delivery of tanks, helicopters and fighter jets to Egypt is more of a symbolic slap than a punishing wound to the military-backed government for its slog toward a return to democratic rule. Egypt is awash in the tanks and planes it would need to fight a conventional war, and spare parts from U.S. manufacturers will continue to be delivered. The Obama administration’s announcement Wednesday did sound a warning that it no longer can be “business as usual” with Cairo, as President Barack Obama put it, after the July 3 military coup that ousted Mohammed Morsi, the country’s first democratically elected president, and led to the deaths of hundreds in police crackdowns on demonstrators. In the short run, the suspension of hundreds of millions of dollars in aid will have little effect on Egypt’s military and its ability to defend itself. The cutoff probably will not do much damage to most of the companies with contracts to build heavy weaponry. The State Department did not say how much of the $1.5 billion in annual military and economic aid to Egypt was affected. It held up the delivery of Apache helicopters, F-16

fighter jets, M1A1 Abrams tank kits, which are put together in Egyptian factories, and Harpoon anti-ship missiles. The U.S. also is withholding $260 million in cash assistance to the government until “credible progress” is made toward an inclusive government set up through free and fair elections. The U.S. will keep providing support for health and education and counterterrorism; spare military parts; military training and education; and border security and security assistance in the Sinai Peninsula. Near-daily attacks against security forces and soldiers in the Sinai have increasingly resembled a fullfledged insurgency. “If they really wanted to hurt Egypt, the U.S. would suspend maintenance and logistic support,” said Robert Springborg, an expert on the Egyptian military at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, Calif. Shana Marshall, of the Institute for Middle East Studies at George Washington University, said the Egyptians are “almost saturated with Abrams tanks. They are literally sitting in warehouses.” Marshall noted that the Egyptians will still receive spare parts, maintenance and technical advisers. “That’s what they really need from the U.S.”

No immediate sign of progress in Senate talks • BUDGET Continued from page A1 Officials said the Statue of Liberty would reopen Sunday after New York agreed to pick up the $61,600 daily tab for running the site. South Dakota and corporate donors did the same for Mount Rushmore, beginning on Monday at a cost of $15,200 a day. One day after talks between the White House and House Republicans fizzled, the focus turned to the Senate. There, a meeting of Reid, GOP leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and two other lawmakers produced no immediate sign of progress. Later, Reid and his top lieutenants – Sens. Chuck Schumer, Patty Murray and Dick Durbin – spent more than an hour at the White House with Obama and senior White House aides, including Obama’s chief of staff, Denis McDonough. The leaders left without speaking and the White House offered no summary of the meeting. The president’s party rejected a stab at compromise led by GOP Maine Sen. Susan Collins, while Republicans blocked the advance of a nostrings attached measure the Democrats drafted to let the Treasury resume normal borrowing. The party line vote was 53-45, seven short of the 60 required. In disagreement was a pair of issues, both important and also emblematic of a broader, unyielding dispute between the political parties over spending, taxes and deficits. Lew has said that without legislation to raise the na-

tion’s $16.7 trillion debt limit, default was possible any day, and with it, a calamitous impact on the economy. A separate measure was needed to reopen the government fully after 12 days of a partial shutdown that has resulted in furloughs for 350,000 federal workers and that administration officials warn could spread hardship if it remains in effect. Politicians agreed passage of both was essential. But Republicans demanded concessions that Democrats were unwilling to give – unless they could get something in return. Officials in both parties said that Democrats had raised the possibility with Republicans of a long-term spending bill that included deficit savings that could replace some or all of the acrossthe-board spending cuts that began taking effect at the beginning of the year. The political calculations were evident. Polls show all portions of the electorate except tea party supporters are increasingly displeased, and Republicans are bearing the brunt of their unhappiness. “Perhaps he sees this as the best opportunity for him to win the House in 2014,” Fleming said of the president. “It’s very clear to us he does not now, and never had, any intentions of negotiating.” Reid was savage. Republicans had begun seeking concessions on health care, he said, and now their No. 1 issue is “to divert attention from the fools they’ve made of themselves on Obamacare.”

Brain cancer case gets a second trial The U.S. court system moves slowly, oftentimes frustratingly so. Cases can take years to get to trial, and then take additional years to get through the appeals process. Joanne Branham and 32 other plaintiffs who have filed suit against a RingFor the record wood manufacturer, blaming it for We applaud an appeals a series of brain court’s reversal of a judge’s and pituitary decision to dismiss the first of cancers in the 33 lawsuits in the McCullom McCullom Lake Lake cancer cases. area, are learning exactly that. For Branham, however, it’s better that her case move slowly than not at all. A Pennsylvania appeals court last week granted Branham a new trial after overturning a judge’s decision to throw out her lawsuit against Rohm and Haas, whose Ringwood specialty chemical plant is accused in 33 lawsuits of causing a cancer cluster in the McCullom Lake area. We applaud the reversal, and hope Branham gets the opportunity to present her full case before a jury of her peers. Branham first filed suit in 2006. Her case went to trial in 2010 but was abruptly cut short in early 2011 when Judge Allan Tereshko dismissed it with prejudice, not allowing her lawyers to finish presenting evidence to a jury. Branham appealed, and finally got the decision she was hoping for two-and-a-half years later. The Northwest Herald has been investigating the McCullom Lake story since 2007. One thing we can say – and have said – with certainty is that, no matter how you look at the evidence, a cluster of cancer cases exists in McCullom Lake and the Lakeland Park subdivision of McHenry, which sits directly south. By definition, a cluster exists when a greater-than-expected number of similar cancers turn up within a group of people within a specific geographic area over time. Of the 33 plaintiffs, 26 have suffered from some form of brain cancer. Of those 26, 10 are victims of glioblastoma multiforme, which affects only about three people in 100,000. To us, it’s clear that a cluster exists. What’s not clear is what caused the cancers. It’s possible, perhaps likely, that we’ll never know. We do know, however, that each of the plaintiffs deserves a full trial on the merits of the case. They should be able to present all of their evidence in front of a jury of their peers. Last week’s decision was a small victory for Branham and the other plaintiffs. Now let their cases be heard.

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Idiotic pumpkin launch To the Editor: Ah, those pumpkins. We use them for making pumpkin pies, for carving and decorations. Some agritourism places like to launch pumpkins in their fields … which is fun and safe to watch. However, a pumpkin should never be launched from a pickup truck traveling at 50 miles an hour at a car traveling in the opposite direction going 50 mph. The 10-pound pumpkin that some idiots launched from their truck was moving quickly when it hit a car on Route 12 the night of Sept. 25 between Fox Lake and Spring Grove. These people thought that it might be fun, but it could have killed the driver of the car. About 2 inches higher and the airbags would have exploded in the driver’s face. Six inches higher, it would have shattered the windshield. The damage to the car is not minor. The molding in the front of the car was severed by the force. The frame around the radiator was

damaged, and the transmission was hit with such force that the car will not shift out of first gear. That’s more than $450 in damages. I sure hope you are bragging to your friends because the schools have been contacted. The police departments in the area were contacted. They may not find your pickup truck, but they will find you because you will not be able to keep quiet. Someone will contact the Spring Grove Police Department and turn you in because that is the responsible thing to do. Margaret Griffin Spring Grove

Start listening To the Editor: It seems our government can’t agree on anything. Why is that? Maybe everyone is saying the same thing, but not listening. I once worked with a big man who had a very low and commanding voice, with an unbelievable vocabulary.

We were to have a meeting to solve a problem that three groups had different ways of solving. This man told me to just listen to what he had to say at the meeting. Each group got a chance to present its opinions. When they were finished, this man said that he had a fourth way to solve this problem and continued to present it. He was very convincing. He had included a little of all three groups opinions. After the meeting, I talked to the man and he said that he had only presented a little of all three groups opinions in what he had to

present. Also, I talked to the three groups, and they all said that he had said exactly what they had in mind, without offending anyone. He was able to put it all together to solve the problem to everyone’s satisfaction. Maybe all that they need to do is listen to each other. It’s hard to see our government trying to solve other governments’ problems, when they can’t find a way to agree on how to solve their own. Fritz Von Bruenchenhein McHenry

Celebrations of promiscuity don’t examine the consequences It’s the 40th anniversary of Erica Jong’s “Fear of Flying,” which some have described as a breakthrough book for women and for modern feminism. Reduced to its common (and I do mean common) denominator, the book, which was written in the appropriately named “Me” Decade of the 1970s, encourages women to behave like promiscuous men, having meaningless sex without fear of consequences. “Fear of Flying” gleefully encourages women to engage in the so-called “ZF.” Don’t know what that means? Look it up. Henry Higgins’ question, “Why can’t a woman be more like a man?” has been asked and answered. She can. She is. And it’s not a good thing. Some ask, “If the Playboy philosophy was good enough for some men, freeing them from a marital commitment in order to have sex, why not the same for some women?” No reason, says “Fear of Flying.” What’s good for the goose, right?

Everybody into the pool! Except that it wasn’t “good” for men or for women. The fallout from the culture bombs dropped on America, beginning in the freewheeling ’60s, continues to infect the younger generation today. Their role models are not parents, or even sports figures, but rather young twits such as Miley Cyrus. Even she is nothing new. Cyrus is just the latest desperate exhibitionist in a long list of desperate exhibitionists who’ll do anything and everything, usually while nearly naked, to get noticed and talked about. What was once considered deviant behavior is now accepted and appears to go unchallenged for fear of a lawsuit or public condemnation. Out-of-wedlock births, the glorification of thug life, the cloying, sycophantic fascination with pseudocelebrity, the tacit acceptance of recreational drug use, it’s all there on the downward slope to depravity. Cole Porter wrote, “In olden days, a

VIEWS Cal Thomas glimpse of stocking was looked on as something shocking. Now, heaven knows, anything goes!” He was ahead of his time. The main character in “Fear of Flying” is 29-year-old Isadora Wing, who says, “The (ZF) is absolutely pure. It is free of ulterior motives. There is no power game. The man is not ‘taking’ and the woman is not ‘giving.’ ... The (ZF) is the purest thing there is.” She’s talking about “quickies,” a fast sexual encounter for pleasure with no expectation of a call in the morning. No commitment. No conversation. The ZF. In a worshipful Washington Post article on Jong’s book, writer Neely Tucker quotes Shelley Fisher Fishkin, professor of English and

director of the American studies program at Stanford University: “It wasn’t unusual to have sex talk in a book. It was unusual to have it in a woman’s head, in a woman’s point of view.” Is this the equality women fought so hard for, for the right to degrade oneself on an equal level with unrestrained cads? Such celebrations of promiscuity rarely examine the consequences of the behavior they promote. One can view the repercussions of doing what pleases nearly every day on “Dr. Phil” where women, especially, are seen suffering from abandonment, abuse and the drugs and alcohol they often turn to, in the false hope it will ease their pain. Many of their children also are addicted to one substance or another and hate one or both of their parents for damaging their lives. Is this who we want to be as a society? While Washington is consumed with the debt ceiling, America should be concerned about its

smelly “sewer ceiling,” which is constantly raised with very little resistance. TV writers put words in the mouths of female characters that would have shocked my grandmother. Modesty is a museum piece. There seem to be fewer men of honor everywhere. When we promote sleaze, we get more sleaze. When we talk ourselves into believing that impropriety is respectable, we corrupt ourselves. Ancient wisdom from the Prophet Isaiah serves as a warning about the consequences of ignoring what once was called objective truth: “What sorrow for those who say that evil is good and good is evil, that dark is light and light is dark, that bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter.” (Isaiah 5:20 New Living Translation) Sorrow indeed.

Bypass bridge work ahead Beams to be placed this week at Algonquin Road; will cause closures By JOSEPH BUSTOS ALGONQUIN – Beams for the new Route 31 bridge over Algonquin Road are scheduled to be set this week, which would lead to periodic lane closures in both directions, the Illinois Department of Transportation said. Setting the bridge beams will require intermittent 10-minute lane closures of both directions of Algon-

quin Road between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. The work is dependent on the weather, IDOT said. The construction is part of the new Route 31 Western Algonquin Bypass, which is being built to alleviate traffic congestion at Route 31 and Route 62. The new road would divert through-traffic away from downtown Algonquin. Construction of the bypass is costing $33.3 million. Work started more than a year ago, and it is expected to

be completed in fall of next year. Currently, only one lane in each direction on Algonquin Road is open in the project area. IDOT expects by mid-November that two lanes in each direction on Algonquin Road will be open after the bridge beams are set, the entrance and exit ramp pavements are placed, and lighting and signal installations foundations are prepared.

ONDER LAKE – Dawn Sheffield was happy to have her “garage buddy” back Saturday. After 9 months in Afghanistan and nearly 2 years away from home, Matthew Johnson returned to Wonder Lake on Saturday to the warm reception of family, friends, neighbors and the Warriors’ Watch Riders – a support group that frequently provides motorcycle escorts or surprises to veterans who return home.

Sheffield, who lives next to Johnson on Balsam Drive, said she was relieved to finally see the now 27-yearold she has known since his childhood again, but was not surprised he volunteered to serve his country. After all, he once stayed to help her repair her flooded garage until 1 a.m. “He was born to do it,” Sheffield said of Johnson’s service in the Army. “He’s always been a good kid and someone you could count on for help.”

Fun underway at Settlers’ Days Marengo’s annual fest offers entertainment, crafts, kids’ events By LINDSAY WEBER

Old D-46 minutes can now be read MARENGO – A small town on a Saturday morning is sure to offer two things: a good conversation at the local coffee spot and a steady flow of familiar faces on Main Street. Marengo followed suit as townsfolk milled around downtown, coffee and kids in hand, to take part in Settlers’ Days. Whether attendees started their day with the 5K run/walk or followed the trail of tails that was the Children’s Pet Parade, they were hardpressed to find an area of city that didn’t have something to offer during the annual celebration. The barrel train ride made its rounds, children spilling from it to make their way to the petting zoo just yards away from its platform. Settlers’ Days was not lacking in vehicles, also offering a classic car show, touch-a-truck and a garden tractor pull. At the high school, craft enthusiasts could purchase handmade items, including sand art, paintings, scarves and greeting cards. Kim Williams found herself back

PRAIRIE GROVE – The District 46 school board released the minutes from 259 closed-session meetings last week. While the board reviews its closed-session minutes every six months, it had not been reassessing old minutes to see whether they could be released. This was recently realized, the district said in a release, and so minutes from 359 meetings dating to 1993 were reviewed. Of those minutes, 100 had previously been made public, and the remaining ones have been posted to the district’s website – 231 of them released in full and 28 with confidential information redacted.

Watch for one-lane road work on Route 176 By KEVIN P. CRAVER We start this week’s Detour installment with progress on a bridge for all of you walkers, runners and bicyclists. • PRAIRIE TRAIL: Word comes that the section of the Prairie Trail between Crystal Lake and Algonquin could be reopened by next month. It’s been closed so workers can replace a bridge over a small

creek north of Meyer Drive. • ROUTE 176: Ongoing road work has a small section of Route 176 between Woodstock and Marengo down to one lane. Watch for workers. • INTERSTATE 90: Traffic shifts are scheduled through the month to put Interstate-90 traffic onto eastbound lanes so that work can begin next year on the westbound lanes. Shifts are taking place at the Marengo Toll Plaza, a 5-mile stretch near Elgin and

a 7-mile stretch near Belvidere. The new lanes are part of a $2.2 billion rebuilding and widening project between Rockford and Elgin, the first phase of which is wrapping up this construction season. Westbound lanes will be widened next year, and the process will be repeated in 2015 and 2016 for I-90 between Elgin and Chicago. • JOHNSBURG ROAD: Watch for workers as the project

enters its final month. Work this week includes new traffic signals and light poles, new sidewalks and landscaping. Only westbound traffic is allowed to travel along the road from Chapel Hill Road to Cherokee Drive. Eastbound traffic is being rerouted through a Route 31, Route 120, Chapel Hill Road detour. • ALGONQUIN WESTERN BYPASS: Watch for workers and delays as workers continue

a $33 million project to build a 2-mile, four-lane highway west of downtown Algonquin to relieve congestion on Route 31. Watch for workers and lane closures along Route 31 and Main Street. Huntington Drive will remain closed between Circle Drive and South Main Street through next summer. A detour to Edgewood Drive is posted. • READ ALL ABOUT IT: You

can sign up at newsletter to get a weekly email update on road projects throughout construction season. You also can find updates online at NWHerald. com/construction.

Prairie Ridge students ready for football game New intersection about 90 percent done • BYPASS Continued from page B1 There are certain parts of the project that are almost done or already completed. The new intersection of Route 31 and Main Street/ Quarry Access Road is about 90 percent done, IDOT said.

The new Quarry Access Road has been completed, but final surfacing remains. Retaining wall work near Edgewood Drive is near completion, and the new rightturn lane for southbound Route 31 to westbound Edgewood Drive is being constructed. As part of the project, the

village had to close Towne Park to allow for construction of the bypass. Workers have completed the Crystal Creek realignment. There is still work to be done on the construction of the three bridges over Crystal Creek as well as various retaining walls.

six months, surprised board President Margaret Ponga. She proposed that the board review closed-session minutes every two months instead of the six months required by state law, and the board passed the policy change at its Sept. 10 meeting. The board also discussed posting its board packets, monthly bills and treasurer’s reports on the district’s website after meetings.

Handicap accessibility to ramp up By JEFF ENGELHARDT CRYSTAL LAKE – Handicap accessibility at the Colonel Palmer House could improve after the approval of a project to add a wheelchair ramp at the city’s only building listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Ann Viger, superintendent of planning and development for the Crystal Lake Park District, said the much-needed project has been years in the making after going through the detailed process of obtaining a certificate of appropriateness and meeting the city landmarking program requirements. “We wanted a ramp back when we opened the house to the public in the early 2000s,” Viger said. “We couldn’t figure out the best way to add one, and it took a while to go through the process.”

Still, because of Americans with Disabilities Act regulations, the house had to be accessible to all when it opened to the public. Viger said a wheelchair lift that would be in and out of service had been used for the past decade, but the new ramp would be a more permanent and aesthetically pleasing option. Viger said the ramp would be all wood and blend with the existing structure, sitting at the north end of the house and blocked from street view. “Obviously a ramp would have never been done in the 1850s,” she said. “So we have to make sure it is done in a visually appropriate way and fitting with the other materials used at that time.” Viger said she hopes the ramp can be constructed before winter weather sets in and expects it to cost about $10,000 if the park district uses in-

house carpenters. Hiring outside contractors for the project could triple the cost, but Viger does not expect that to be needed. The project is part of a larger face-lift for the historical building, which also received a $14,000 paint job recently to maintain the trimming on the exterior. Viger said tuck pointing also could be done in the near future. “When a building is 155 years old, there is always a lot of work and maintenance to be done,” she said. “And it’s really grown in popularity the last five or six years. There is something happening almost every week.” The house, on 660 E. Terra Cotta Ave., was home to McHenry County pioneer Gustavus A. Palmer and his wife. It now is used for community events, history presentations and research purposes.

Soldier leaving for Texas to continue service • SOLDIER Continued from page B1 Johnson was thrilled to be back Saturday, but knew his time home would be short. He is scheduled to go back to Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas, next weekend to serve another year, but will not need to head overseas. Still, for a father of an 8-year-old son and 6-year-old daughter, time apart is the toughest aspect of a job that includes the possibility of combat at any time. “The hardest part of leaving was having to go [to Af-

ghanistan] the day before Christmas,” Johnson said. “I came here to see my family and kids as much as I can before I have to leave again.” Upon completion of his service, the Army calvary scout plans to attend college and possibly study accounting. No matter his son’s next life decision, Johnson’s father said he was beyond proud. Bill Johnson, who served in the Army in 1973, said he did not know his son wanted to join the military until he was near high school graduation. The experience was much different from his own

time in the military. “I just had to hope I raised him right and he was trained right because there was not a lot of communication,” Bill Johnson said of his son’s time overseas. “It is more nerve-wracking.” Valeri Johnson, Matthew Johnson’s mother, agreed it was a stressful 9 months with her son in Afghanistan but was soaking in the moment of the community – including fire and police officials – thanking her son for his service. “This is more than I could have ever expected,” she said. “It is amazing.”

Breaking news @

Sports editor: Jon Styf •



Some wins feel different than others One after another, Brandon Marshall, Jay Cutler and Marc Trestman stepped to the podium after the Giants game Thursday and told us, “Hey, a win is a win.” According to Marshall, “When you start fast like that, you want to continue to go full speed. We didn’t do that, but the good thing is we got a win.” Trestman made sure the glass is half-full, More Bears explaining, “It wasn’t all pretty The Bears are off and we know that. That’s Sunday, but Bears exciting from Gameday isn’t takour standpoint ing the week off. because we know PAGES C6-7 we have a chance to get better.” But as the Bears prepare for a much-needed weekend off and then a full week of practice for the Redskins prior to their bye week, they left the Giants game having raised more questions about themselves than there were going in. Specifically, while a win is in fact a win no matter how you get it, based on what we saw of the Bears against the Giants how many more wins can we hope for this season? The Bears are 4-2 and at least temporarily alone in first place in the NFC North. Their four wins are against Cincinnati, Minnesota, Pittsburgh and the Giants, who have a combined record of 4-15. Their victories over the Bengals and Vikings weren’t much prettier than the Giants game. Their two losses are to the 3-2 Lions and 5-0 Saints. These Bears can beat bad teams but can they play with good ones? Left on the Bears’ schedule you’ll find the 1-3 Redskins, 2-3 Rams, 1-3 Vikings, 2-3 Cowboys and 2-3 Eagles. While none of them are sure things, let’s assume they win at least four, making them 8-3. There are also two games with the 2-2 Packers, one with the 3-2 Lions, 3-2 Baltimore and at 3-2 Cleveland. Using the same logic, it’s reasonable to assume they lose all but one. If it goes that way, we’re looking at a 9-7 football team, a game worse than last year’s 10-6. That’s just one of a dozen different scenarios that could come true, but the point is obvious. Based on what the Bears have shown in their first six games, that is who they are today.

Reversal of fortune Big 2nd half sends Giants to 5th win By JOE STEVENSON

Alden-Hebron’s Avi Mor carries the ball during the third quarter Saturday.

HEBRON – Alden-Hebron wide receiver Cody Nelson remembers seeing two things after taking a handoff from tight end Trevor Redlin on a reverse play. “I saw grass. A whole bunch of grass,” Nelson said. “And then I saw our quarterback [Colten Cashmore] 20 yards downfield throwing a block. That does a lot for the team when your quarterback’s throwing blocks.” Nelson felt obliged to do something special after Cashmore’s effort, so he raced down the left sideline for a 55-yard touchdown that gave the Giants their first lead against Hiawatha in the game. It was as uplifting for A-H

It was the second of four unanswered Giants’ second-half touchdowns as A-H rolled to a 28-8 victory in their Northeastern Athletic Conference football game Saturday. The victory virtually guarantees A-H (5-2 overall, 5-2 NAC) will be in the playoffs for the 10th time in coach John Lalor’s 11 seasons. Although it was more of a struggle than the score indicated. “In the first half, we were so unfocused,” offensive linemanlinebacker Marshall Glenn

said. “We had a bad week of practice, so you play how you practice. It was a rough game. It shouldn’t have been that close.” Lalor said his team was flat after a 45-minute lightning delay before the opening kickoff. Hiawatha (3-4, 3-4) was ready to roll and running back Nick Doolittle ran for 121 of his 144 yards by halftime. The Hawks were so proficient that Doolittle caught a screen pass from quarterback Mike Mercado on a thirdand-26 and gained 30 yards. “I told our them these guys were going to bring everything they could,” Lalor said. “They’re fighting for their [playoff] life. We didn’t play very well today. Good Lord!”

2 points separate FVC’s top 3 teams By ROB SMITH CRYSTAL LAKE – It couldn’t have gotten much closer in the team competition at the Fox Valley Conference girls tennis tournament Saturday. A single point separated first and second and second and third places. Prairie Ridge finished with 97 points to edge Jacobs (96) and Crystal Lake South (95). Crystal Lake Central was fourth with 80 points followed by Cary-Grove with 71. First-year Prairie Ridge coach Jim Benson said he knew going into

the tournament that every match, whether it was for first or ninth, was going to be critical. “Seeded or unseeded, every single team can be a threat,” Benson said. “Every single point is important.” Callie Schmit led a sweep of the singles titles by Prairie Ridge, defeating South’s Julia Thome in the No. Callie 1 singles final, 6-4, 6-3. Schmit Also winning for the Wolves were Natalie Favie at No. 2 singles and Annie Timm at No. 3. After winning the first set, Schmit went down, 3-0, in the second set before reeling off six consecutive games to win the title. Instead of getting more intense, Schmit decided to relax and have

some fun. “I decided not to take it too seriously and go for my shots,” Schmit said. “I thought that I had to do something.” The win also gave Schmit some confidence heading into sectionals next week. She had lost to Thome twice this season. “I feel like I’ve always been the underdog,” Schmit said. “This really gave me confidence. I’m just really happy.” Benson said Schmit’s win was not only important for the first-place points but also to boost the morale of the entire team. “This was the biggest win by far,” Benson said of Schmit. “Biggest win for the team. She’s such a good player.”

he Kentucky High School Athletic Association recommended this week that its schools get rid of postgame handshakes because they could incite conflict. Sports editor Jon Styf and columnist Tom Musick discuss:

Musick: Oh, Kentucky. I want to like you for your mountains and horses and baseball bat museums. I don’t want to make fun of you for your big overalls and small minds. But you make it really tough to like you when you declare that postgame handshakes are a threat. Styf: The best question is what good they do. They are supposed to be about sportsmanship, but they are really just an opportunity to spit on your hand or mumble under your breath while being forced to slap hands after a game. True sportsmanship isn’t scheduled, it happens during a game or spontaneously afterward. In many cases, it is actually an unsafe practice. Exhibit A being a chippy playoff game one of our coverage area teams played in while I worked in Texas. Things were heated, they discussed canceling the handshake, and then went through with it anyway. A brawl ensued, pepper spray had to be used to break it up, and it scarred both programs. In that case, the handshake was a very bad decision. The actions certainly could have been avoided too, but eliminating the handshake would have eliminated the brawl. Musick: It’s not the handshake’s fault that people act like idiots. I say people because it’s not just the kids involved in postgame altercations, it’s also a product of egomaniacal coaches and loudmouth parents and everything else that can go wrong in amateur sports. If anything, we need to keep the handshake to remind kids (and remind ourselves) the real meaning behind these games. Is it forced? Yeah, I guess it’s forced, just like we force kids to sit in their desks and show respect to their peers and not talk out of turn. I don’t like the implications of abandoning handshakes because we aren’t civilized enough to line up and say, “Good game.” Styf: Just like we aren’t civilized enough to stand in line and wait your turn for a deal on Black Friday (I have my elbows greased to get a new TV this year, by the way). Sometimes you have to take a step outside your idealistic ivory tower and get in touch with reality, Tom. If the safety of kids is a concern, then avoid it all together. In many cases, it is. Point as many fingers as you would like, the ultimate goal is to play the game in a respectful way and go home understanding what it was about. I don’t see getting rid of the handshake as giving in to all that troubles us as a society. It’s just getting rid of a meaningless postgame tradition. Musick: Hey, I like my ivory tower. The view up here is great. Anyway, I have to disagree with you on this one. If the safety of kids is truly in jeopardy, we shouldn’t be playing the games. Because, in that case, we have way bigger issues than postgame handshakes. Styf: I’m not making it up. I’ve seen what can happen. And, because of that, I can’t disagree with what Kentucky did. Not everywhere is Mayberry. And, if head trauma can’t stop people from playing the game, postgame fights can’t either. This is just part of what I see as the evolution of the sport. Musick: So do we shake on this, or what? Oh, and by the way, I’ll see you on Black Friday. That new TV is all mine.

Mike Lalor has guided Stillman Valley to four state football championships and a Class 3-A runner-up finish in 2010. The 1990 Marian Central graduate was recently selected as the top high school football coach in Illinois in a USA Today poll, garnering more than 78,000 votes.

I wish I could kind of put my finger on why (success has come). It’s just been an unreal situation. I could have never dreamed when I started that this amount of success would have followed. I’ve always said that it’s a good, tough situation to be in. The good part is that you’ve had success and the expectations are unbelievable. I remember after we lost in the state finals in 2010, I had a few people come up after the game and pat me on the back and say, ‘It’s still an OK year – you’re second in the state’ and to those people you’re still OK. If that’s the worst problem you have as a coach, that’s a pretty good situation to be in. To be perfectly honest, when (USA Today) first emailed me, I thought it was one of my coaches prank emailing me. All of a sudden, I found out it was the real thing. But I think it’s been a real fun thing for our community – things like this don’t happen very often. I’ve never been real comfortable with the accolades that come with (coaching). But there’s just so many people involved with it. I’ve got great assistant coaches, our parents are unbelievable here, our players. And for me to get the credit for that doesn’t seem quite right.

It’s been a real interesting situation here because anywhere you go here, people know who you are. I don’t always know who they are, but if you go out to our little restaurant in town, people come over and talk to you so you always have to conduct yourself in the proper manner because the eyes are always on you. But at the same time, it’s kind of an honor and it’s a chance to influence young people by living your life the right way because people are always watching you. That’s why I think most of us get into education – to be able to influence young people in a such a close-knit community, you have that chance to actually have an effect on people. At the same time, there’s always those times when you wish you could have a little more privacy. But again, if that’s the worst problem you have in life, it’s a pretty good deal.

I’ve never been real comfortable with the attention part of things. But at the same time, I think it’s been a very positive thing in mine and my family’s life that you get to meet a lot of people. We’ve tried to do some things charity-wise to help people in need and so if you use (visibility) in the right way, you can really help a lot of people. Being part of Marian Central and having a Christian background, that’s a big part of what we try and do with our lives. And with football, maybe that’s why that was put into place – that’s something that gave people the access to us – to be able to help them out in return. I think the last several years, I’ve began to think that maybe that’s why this has happened because it doesn’t make a lot of sense to be able to have the amount of success and to have so many things fall into place. There had to be a bigger purpose to it.

Huntley pushes Boylan to limit in final Red Raiders take 2nd; Marian 3rd By MAUREEN LYNCH HUNTLEY – When Erin Erb’s kill slammed to the floor to ignite her Huntley teammates Saturday afternoon, it was clear the Red Raiders were in the midst their best match of the season. It was the first game of the championship match of Huntley’s own tournament, and the Raiders were loud and punchy against Boylan and its Penn State-bound setter, Bryanna Weiskircher. Sustaining the energy

would be critical. When Boylan eventually pushed the match to a third set and pulled out the victory, 12-25, 26-24, 25-23, to win the tournament, the Raiders were disappointed but couldn’t be distraught. Huntley showed a focus necessary at a seminal point in the season. A second-place finish couldn’t take away from that. Marian Central finished third after losing to Huntley in three sets in the championship semifinals. Johnsburg finished sixth, Jacobs was seventh and Richmond-Burton was ninth in the 15-team tournament. “It was a great game,” said Liss of the Raiders’ match against Boylan. “We were loud, we were intense, and it really was some of the best ball we’ve played.”

The Raiders led Game 2 against Boylan, 7-0, with Kelsey DeWulf serving and Erb and Emily Westermeyer each putting down kills. The Titans eventually got within two, 22-20, and went outside to Alexis Varga for three kills that forced the third set. It was not unlike the run Marian Central (13-8) used to force a third game against Huntley (15-10) in the semifinals. After dropping the first set, 26-24, the Hurricanes used a 6-0 run to lead 22-17 in the second. Middle Hannah Davis served two aces during the sequence, and sophomore middle Rachel Giustino had a pivotal block to fuel the comeback. Marian beat St. Ignatius, 24-26, 2515, 25-18, in the third-place match. “We did phenomenally well,” Marian coach Laura Watling said. “They

believed in themselves this weekend.” Jacobs (14-12) received big contributions from libero Kassie Kasper and middle hitter Bridget Wallenberger to help the Golden Eagles beat Glenbard North for seventh place. After three straight Fox Valley Conference Valley Division losses, the Eagles needed their 3-2 tournament showing. “We started this season strong and then just had a lull,” Jacobs coach Lisa Dwyer said. “This was certainly a confidence builder.” Johnsburg coach Sue Feely took her team’s 3-2 showing as a positive, too. The Skyhawks had offensive contributions from Ashly Schmitt (30 kills) and Amy Majercik (29 kills), and junior Trace Chase (14 blocks)

played well at the net. “Now we know what we need to work on,” Feely said. “We don’t have a lot of people in our conference that hit the way these teams hit or play a fast tempo like this, so it was good to see that before regionals.” R-B coach Laura Karamitos was happy to see the Rockets play strong defensively. Libero Jenna Mazur finished with 55 digs, while outside hitter Ali Frantti picked up 43 to go with her 67 kills. “We played a lot more balanced,” Karamitos said. “Ali did a really nice job leading her team this weekend, not only in kills and scoring points but getting the girls to play at a higher level each match. The girls are really learning a lot from Ali, and it is nice to see her in that role.”


R-B girls golfers advance to state Rockets romp to sectional crown NORTHWEST HERALD The Richmond-Burton girls golf team dominated the Class A Freeport Aquin Sectional on Saturday at Park Hills in Freeport. Blake Betke led the Rockets with a 6-over-par 78 and combined with MacKenzie Hahn (84), Jenny Wojcik (97) and Emily Fox (104) for a 363 total that was good for a first-place finish and a trip to the state meet Friday and Saturday at Red Tail Run in Decatur. “Everyone; parents, coaches, the golfers and their friends are really happy,” coach Brandon Creason said. “It makes the postseason just that much more exciting when you realize you have a shot to go far.” The Rockets finished 33 strokes ahead of second-place Byron (394). Rosary placed third with a 399. Each of the three teams will advance to state. Lena-Winslow also carded a 399 but was edged by Rosary as the tie went to a fifth-player scorecard. R-B defeated Lena-Winslow earlier in the season by seven strokes, and Creason was pleasantly surprised by the margin of victory. “I thought we had a good shot, but I didn’t expect to win by this much,” he said. “There were some tough teams there, and I thought the field would be tighter.” The state meet begins Friday and continues Saturday with 18-hole rounds each day.

BOYS SOCCER Woodstock North 8, Richmond-Burton 0: At Richmond, Aaron Jones scored a hat trick to lead the Thunder (1010-1) to a nonconference victory. Chris Niese scored two goals and had an assist for Woodstock North, and Julio Campos added a goal and two assists in the win. Ricky Rodriguez made seven saves for the shutout.

Glenbrook North 3, CL South 0: At Crystal Lake, the Gators (7-11-3) fell at home in nonconference play. Gus Alvarez made four saves in the loss. Dundee-Crown 3, Larkin 2: At

Carpentersville, the Chargers (18-0-1) held on to win in nonconference play to remain undefeated on the season. Larkin tied the score with less than 20 minutes left before Eduardo Arellano scored his second goal of the game to put DundeeCrown ahead for good. Paul Buch scored the other goal for the Chargers, and Jose Gonzalez made eight saves.

GIRLS VOLLEYBALL Elaine Lonergan Memorial Tournament: At Antioch, Crystal Lake Central (23-3) went 5-0 at the tournament to claim first place. The Tigers earned wins over Antioch, Oswego East, Southland College Prep, Rolling Meadows and Yorkville en route to the title. The Tigers never lost a set in the tournament. Annie Fox had 40 digs for the tournament, and Kassi Dvoracek added 34 digs to lead the Tigers’ defensive effort. Lauren Leverenz led the team with 29 kills and 10 blocks, and Maddy Cysewski had 19 kills and seven blocks. Natalie Ricca had 44 assists. Saxon Invitational: At Schaumburg, Cary-Grove (17-14) went 3-2 on the day, including losing in the tournament championship match to St. Charles North, 31-29, 25-17. Cary-Grove beat St. Viator, Bartlett and Larkin en route to a second-place finish. Kayli Trausch led the Trojans with 27 kills and 21 blocks for the tournament. Delaney Bayer added 42 digs and 11 aces in the five matches.

CROSS COUNTRY Wildcat Invitational: At Wheeling, Huntley sophomore Keagan Smith finished fifth in 16:42.9 as the Red Raiders took fifth out of 20 boys teams with 168 points. Barrington won the meet with 66. Seth Conroy was 27th for the Raiders, followed by Matt Kapolnek (29th), Mike Grocholski (49th) and Jimmy Jestus (61st). Huntley’s top girls runners did not compete with the cross country postseason approaching next week. Macy Tram-

Alden-Hebron’s Cody Nelson carries the ball in the first quarter Saturday against Kirkland Hiawatha in Hebron. Alden-Hebron won, 28-8.

Nelson’s TD run on reverse changes game • FOOTBALL Continued from page C1 A-H tied the score when Nelson scored on a 5-yard run in the third quarter and Cashmore, while slipping and almost doing the splits, flipped a two-point conversion pass to Redlin. On their next possession, Nelson took the reverse all the way on a thirdand-7 play. “It was huge,” Hiawatha coach Sean Donnelly said. “It got them the first down, got them momentum, got our

guys upset because we had them third-and-long. We’ve had some issues trying to stop third-and-long sometimes, and it comes back to bite you. It demoralizes you as a team.” After that point, the Hawks gained only two more first downs. A-H’s defense came up with three second-half turnovers and allowed Hiawatha only 87 total yards in the second half. “We weren’t concerned [at halftime] scorewise,” Glenn said. “We were concerned

about emotions. We didn’t want to give them life. We wanted to get up on them and put them away. We knew if they kept the game close, it would be a battle to the end. We didn’t want that.” After Nelson’s two touchdowns, Avi Mohr and Nate Peterson each ran for a score in the fourth quarter. Running back Nick Beck missed the game with an ankle injury but plans on returning next week against North Shore Country Day. Peterson ran 20 times for 149 yards, 101

of which came in the second half. “We just woke up finally and realized we couldn’t lose this game and get a good seed in the playoffs,” Nelson said. “[Lalor] wasn’t happy [at halftime], but he knew we could come back and do it.” Because NAC schools play only conference games, the Giants are guaranteed 40 playoff points, which should be ample for making the playoffs. They finish with Country Day (1-6) and Ottawa Marquette (7-0).

CLC’s Youel, Wallace grab No. 1 doubles title • TENNIS Continued from page C1 When Schmit was down, 3-0, in the second set, Benson told her to keep it out of the middle of the court on her returns. Another big win for the Wolves came from Anna Kuechenberg and Mikaela McNally against Crystal Lake South in the No. 1 doubles semifinals. After taking the first set against Kelsey Laktash and Rachel Rasmussen, Kuechenberg and McNally dropped the second set, 6-1. Benson said he wanted to get his team refocused during the third-set break.

“We took a walk around the track and cleared their heads,” Benson said. “We go out and (win) 6-1, in the third set.” Evelyn Youel and Jillian Wallace won the No. 1 doubles title for Crystal Lake Central, defeating Kuechenberg and McNally, 6-1, 6-3. After placing in the top 12 last year at state in doubles, Youel and Wallace have gone undefeated (19-0) this year in doubles. Wallace said it was hard not thinking about the upcoming state tournament, especially after the season they have had. “Coming into conference and we


were still undefeated is scary,” Wallace said. “I don’t feel the pressure yet.” Youel said she has been trying to appreciate playing in her last season but wishes they could have played some tougher matches. “I wish we could have been challenged a little more,” Youel said. “I think it would have made us stronger if we had lost.” Also winning in doubles were Central’s Carley George and Maddie Fox at No. 2, Kylee Fetzner and Danielle Baietto from Crystal Lake South at No. 3 and Jacobs’ Sara Elliott and Lauren Bayer at No. 4.


Young players step forward for U.S. Bombing survivor to run By DAVE SKRETTA The Associated Press KANSAS CITY, Kan. – The moment Graham Zusi trotted onto the pitch at Sporting Park and basked in the roar of a sellout crowd for a World Cup qualifier against Jamaica, nobody seemed to care who he had replaced. True, the Sporting KC midfielder was playing in his home stadium Friday night. That was a big reason he was showered with love. But the other, more noteworthy reason was that Zusi immediately gave the Americans a spark, scoring the first goal in what turned into a 2-0 victory. It was only after he scored in the 77th minute to help the U.S. clinch first place in its group for the third straight cycle that anybody seemed to

he made the substitution for “performance-based” reasons, and it was hard to argue. Donovan had struggled in the first half. But it also was evidence that a new, young generation of players is ready to take over the mantle from the previous bunch of standard bearers. “There’s great depth in this team, and we’re pushing each other in each game and in each practice as well,” Zusi said. “And that competition is needed for a team to do well.” Zusi’s goal was just the second of his international career, while Donovan holds the U.S. career record for both goals and assists. And it’s not as if Donovan is washed up, either. He has eight goals and eight assists this year, surpassing the single-year point record of 22 he set in 2007.

The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – For one runner, in particular, making it through Sunday’s Chicago Marathon will be an especially hard-fought achievement. Boston resident Lee Ann Yanni was injured in April’s bombings at that city’s marathon. The first of two blasts at the finish line tore through the 32-year-old’s left leg, forcing her to undergo multiple surgeries and a lengthy rehabilitation. It also threatened plans she already had to run in Chicago to raise money to fight cancer, which claimed the life of her father last year. She told the Chicago Sun-Times that her road to recovery and to Chicago’s race was “probably the hardest thing” she’s ever done. “I’m a stubborn person. I’m not

going to let anyone take this dream away from me,” she said. Yanni is a physical therapist who was attending the Boston Marathon to support several of her patients who were running. She was about 15 feet from the first bomb that went off. “My leg was pretty much filleted open,” she said. “They removed a half-dollar-sized piece of shrapnel and wood from my leg, as well as piece of my fibula.” Her husband, Nick, applied a tourniquet to her leg and suffered hearing damage himself. She spent a week in the hospital and a month on crutches. Yanni said she only started a walk-run program about five weeks ago to prepare for the marathon in Chicago. Her goal is to finish in less than six hours.

Peterson has dealt with tragedy often By DAVE CAMPBELL The Associated Press MINNEAPOLIS – When Adrian Peterson was 7, he saw his older brother die in a bike accident when he was hit by a drunken driver. For Peterson’s teenage years, his father was in prison. He grew up poor in east Texas. Shortly before the Minnesota Vikings drafted him in 2007, a half-brother was shot and killed. Long before Peterson began running through the NFL record book, he learned to turn tragedy into fuel for an exceptional career. Football has always been his escape, and now he’s dealing with more off-the-field strife. One of Peterson’s sons, a victim of alleged child abuse, died Friday of severe head injuries suffered in the attack. The man charged in the case, Joseph Patterson, was home alone with the 2-year-old boy Wednesday and called 911

Prizes • D oor ments sh • R e f r e ts un • Disco

to report he was choking, according to police. Patterson was the boyfriend of the child’s mother. Peterson missed practice Thursday to be in Sioux Falls, S.D., where the boy Adrian Peterson lived with his mother and Patterson. He returned to the Vikings on Friday. “Things that I go through, I’ve said a thousand times, it helps me play this game to a different level,” he said after practice, about an hour after the child’s death. “I’m able to kind of release a lot of my stress through this sport, so that’s what I plan on doing.” Twitter has been filled with public condolences for Peterson and his loved ones.

and support. “Praying for you and your family. May God give you the strength,” tweeted New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck, whose team plays the Vikings on Oct. 21. The Vikings play Carolina on Sunday, and Peterson promised to participate. “I’ll be ready to roll, focused,” he said. Peterson’s relationship with the dead son was not known publicly, but the boy did not carry Peterson’s name. Peterson has another son, Adrian Jr., who lives with him, he confirmed on Twitter on Saturday in attempt to clarify his family situation. “He’s a wonderful human being,” said Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops, who coached Peterson in college. “He’s a very faithful, strong, Christian guy that we all dearly, we all love him. We’re all there for him. Incredibly tragic event. He’s a great a kid, a great man, a great kid when I had him.”

Cutler shows improvement 1

Jay Cutler is clearly enjoying his best year as a pro through six weeks of the 2013 season and a marked improvement over 2012. Cutler has improved his completion percentage from last season from 58.8 to 65.9 percent, his average gain a pass is up half a yard from 7.0 to 7.5, his interception percentage is down from 3.2 to 2.8 percent, and the biggest leap is in his passer rating where he finished 2012 at 81.3 and is at 95.2 for this season. That 95.2 is a 12 percent improvement over his career rating of 84.9 and the 65.9 completion percentage is an 8.5 percent improvement over his career mark of 60.7 entering this season. Cutler is also doing better in the interception department with six interceptions out of a total of 217 passes. His interception percentage is 2.8 percent compared to a career mark of 3.6 percent, and 3.2 percent in 2012. Cutler’s touchdown-to-interception ratio is also vastly improved. His 2-to-1 ratio this year is significantly better than the 19 touchdowns to 14 interceptions he threw in 2012 and his career mark of 136 to 100 entering the season. – Hub Arkush,

Bears aren’t making progress from Week 1

Sarah Nader -

The Bears’ Matt Forte is taken down in the fourth quarter against the New York Giants on Thursday. Forte and Michael Bush combined for only 75 rushing yards against the NFL’s 27th-ranked rushing defense.

Time for Bears to go on a run AP photo

CHICAGO – Matt Forte lined up 7 yards behind the line of scrimmage and studied the defensive formation of the New York Giants. On this play – first-and-10 early in the second quarter – the Giants did not key specifically on Forte. They relied on their traditional “4-3” alignment with four defensive linemen and three linebackers, plus a safety pinching in to account for lead fullback Tony Fiammetta. Bingo. Forte angled right, sprinted three steps forward and accepted the handoff from Jay Cutler. Teammates Roberto Garza and Kyle Long sealed off their blocks, and Forte took advantage. He sprinted 4 yards before slamming into Giants linebacker Jon Beason, then spun to his left to pick up an extra 3 yards with Beason clinging to his waist to try to drag him down. If only every run play could look as efficient as that 7-yard gain. “We’re going to get it eventually,” Long said after the Bears’ narrow win. “We’re all coming together as an offense, and I think you guys can see that. There’s progress made weekly.” Pretty soon, the Bears will need to pick up the pace.

BEARS INSIDER Tom Musick Take away a 15-yard run by Alshon Jeffery and three improvised scrambles by Cutler, and the Bears’ running game mostly sputtered in Week 6 at Soldier Field. Forte and backup running back Michael Bush teamed up for 25 carries for 75 yards against the winless Giants, who entered the game with the NFL’s 27th-ranked rushing defense. Yes, the Bears won, and therefore it was hard to blame Forte for feeling upbeat afterward. Besides, he said, the Giants made a point to focus on stopping the Bears’ running game, which allowed Cutler to pick up first downs consistently via the passing attack. “They played ‘Bear Front’ a lot, which is when they shift the linebackers down and move the defensive linemen in,” Forte said. “It’s hard to run against that front. Give them credit. They’ve got a lot of good defensive linemen.” As individuals, perhaps. As a team? No-and-six. The Bears have managed to post a 4-2 record despite an inconsistent run game led

by Forte, who has yet to post a 100-yard game this season. Maybe Marc Trestman’s crew can get away with another subpar ground game next week against the Washington Redskins, but as the weather turns harsh on the lakefront in the weeks ahead, quality runs will be essential. By then, Cutler said, the Bears’ offense will be better. “I don’t think anybody in the league is where they want to be offensively and defensively at this point – too early in the year,” Cutler said. “You want to be playing your best football in November and December and make your run then.” If not, good luck. “We’ve got a versatile offense where we’re not just one-dimensional,” Forte said. “We can run the ball and throw the ball as well. “I’m involved in the passing game. I had a couple catches out there [Thursday] as well. If the running game is struggling, we can throw the ball through the air.” And hope the right person catches it. • Shaw Media sports columnist Tom Musick can be reached at and on Twitter @ tcmusick. is online Check it out, bookmark it and make it your homepage for Bears coverage going forward.

Bears linebacker D.J. Williams (left) and safety Major Wright (21) tackle New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs in the first half Thursday at Soldier Field.

BEARS LEFT PLENTY ON THE FIELD By KEVIN FISHBAIN LAKE FOREST – Reviewing the tape from Thursday night’s game against the Giants likely made Bears coach Marc Trestman even more pleased the team got out of there with a win. “It was not our best performance, no doubt about it,” Trestman said about the defense when addressing the media Friday. “On the downside,

third down and red zone, certainly not as productive as it had been the two weeks before. Our tackling wasn’t crisp. “We missed some tackles in what we call ‘crack replace,’ and we had a couple side-pocket throws in our Cover 2.” The Bears gave up 106 rushing yards to Giants running back Brandon Jacobs. As a team, the Giants had yet to eclipse 100 yards rushing in a game all season. Part of the issue on defense

was, yet again, the lack of a pass rush. Julius Peppers did not even make the official stat sheet, and Trestman was asked about his play. “I just don’t think it’s about one guy here. It’s about us collectively continuing to find ways to get a pass rush going,” he said. “We got close and Julius got close a couple times, too. We just didn’t get close enough. We got close enough to redirect Eli [Manning] a couple times and push him out

of the pocket, we just didn’t hit him.” On the offensive side of the ball, Trestman knew they had some opportunities to put the Giants away. “The most disappointing part of the half was certainly when we took points off the board, the quick screen to Brandon, and then the screen pass that Jay [Cutler] got the penalty on, and took us out of field goal range,” he said, “which could have really, re-

ally hurt us.” The positive, though, is the Bears got a win on short rest, which is always tough in the NFL, and Trestman appreciated how they responded to Sunday’s loss. He commended the team’s “leadership” for getting players emotionally ready for Thursday’s game. “We had enough left in us to play with a sense of urgency last night and take the Giants’ best shot,” he said. Another loss on “D”: The

Bears confirmed that middle linebacker D.J. Williams suffered a season-ending torn pectoral muscle injury. He left Thursday’s game and did not return, and was placed by rookie Jon Bostic. Williams had 27 tackles, four for loss, this season, and had been stout against the run game. Bostic had not played a snap on defense in the regular season until Thursday night, but will likely be starting the rest of the way.

Let’s go back to Jay Cutler’s take on the Giants game. “Little things, we won the game, but you kind of leave unsatisfied cause I think offensively we could have exploded for a little bit more.” Cutler’s correct, they could have been better. But they weren’t. The defense really struggled and there is almost no arguing that if Eli Manning hadn’t been so horrible, the Bears lose that game. Possibly even more disconcerting than that is what you find if you compare where the Bears are today to where they were Week 1 or Week 2. Did the Bears play better against the Giants on Oct. 10 than they did against the Vikings on Sept. 15? It would seem pretty clear they did not. In fact, if you track the Bears from week to week

from Pittsburgh to Detroit, to New Orleans and then to the Giants, are they getting better, or worse? They haven’t gotten better. Trestman’s assessment of where they’re at after the Giants game was “We’re going to continue to find things we can do to improve our football team in all three phases. We’re a work in progress. Tonight, we found a way to win a game and that’s exciting.” That’s fair, and I’d like to be a glass half full guy too. At 4-2, there are only five teams in the NFL with better records than the Bears. The future could be very bright. The question of course is just when are the Bears going to start showing us how that’s going to happen? • Hub Arkush covers the Bears for Shaw Media and Write to him at

By J.C. TALON Five weeks into the season, injuries are beginning to mount. If you play in a 12-team league or larger, an injury to your starting quarterback can greatly diminish your shot at a title. If you have an unreliable backup, your season might be over. The injury bug already has bitten some quarterbacks: Michael Vick and Jake Locker are temporarily sidelined and Brian Hoyer is out for the season. Matt Schaub and Christian Ponder are in danger of losing their starting jobs. Expect more drama as the season unfolds. Although your waiver wire probably has been picked

clean of all running backs with a pulse, there still may be some good quarterbacks available. If you want to contend for a fantasy championship, you’d be wise to have a backup plan at QB. Fantasy footballs top 12 starting quarterbacks and possible backup strategies: 1. Peyton Manning (31.8 ppg): Manning has been incredibly durable, so if your No. 2 quarterback is someone like Tony Romo, you should be looking to trade him for a solid position player. The perfect backup for Manning is Terrelle Pryor. The Broncos’ bye is week 9 when the Raiders play the Eagles. 2. Drew Brees (23.8): Pair Brees with Ryan Tannehill of Miami. He faces Buffalo

during the Saints bye week (seven). 3. Aaron Rodgers (22.3): The Packers already had their bye and Rodgers has a very limited injury history. Consequently, you might be tempted to pair Rodgers with the Packers’ second stringer, Seneca Wallace. The problem with that strategy occurs if Rodgers suffers a minor injury and the starter becomes unclear in a given week. You’d be better off secur-

ing a backup with some upside, such as Pryor or Geno Smith. 4. Tony Romo (22.2): Moving Romo to No. 4 is probably an overreaction to his performance against Denver. No matter which quarterback you put in this slot, there is a big falloff from Rodgers. If you don’t have one of the top three guys, your backup quarterback needs to be a more viable option. The perfect complement to Romo is Alex Smith. He faces Denver during Romo’s bye week. 5. Matt Ryan (20.4): Something is not right with Atlanta, but Ryan’s fantasy numbers have been consistent. The Falcons are off this week. Consider Andy Dalton for your No. 2 (at Buffalo). 6. Andrew Luck (18.6):

We stand corrected about the Colts and Luck. They’ve beaten Seattle and San Francisco, and they are for real. The Colts are off during week 8 when Pittsburgh travels to Oakland. Consider Pryor or Roethlisberger. 7. Matthew Stafford (19): Because Stafford has an injury history, you will need a solid backup. Avoid Eli Manning and Colin Kaepernick due to a common bye week (9). 8. Tom Brady (14): Although his current points per game don’t warrant a roster spot, we feel there will be improved production. Have a backup plan just in case. Consider Sam Bradford. 9. Philip Rivers (22.4) He is the third-leading scorer among QBs, but many fantasy owners

still have their doubts. The recommendation would be to believe the trends and make him your starter. Pair him with Eli or Geno Smith. 10. Robert Griffin III (18): Griffin is susceptible to injury, so be sure to pair with someone like Can Newton, Alex Smith or Russell Wilson. 11. Cam Newton (13.6): It’s been a weird year for Newton: one great week and four stinkers. Might be a good “buy-low” option. 12. Michael Vick (24.2 in 4.25 games)/Nick Foles (26.7 in .75 games): One of these guys will score some points, but we get the funny feeling that the starter is going to be a weekly guessing game, at least for a while. Wilson, Smith or Joe Flacco are options.

Hawks overcome Miller’s 38 saves

Bulls downplay scratching Rose in preseason game By JOE COWLEY RIO DE JANEIRO – Bulls vice president John Paxson knew exactly how it would look. Hours before the first NBA game in Brazil tipped off, he had to discuss Derrick Rose’s late scratch because of soreness in his left knee. “We know in this day and age that people are going to come Derrick Rose up with some theory,’’ Paxson said. “It’s minor knee soreness, and we’re going to let him work through this the next day or two. That’s it. “We never anticipated a straight line. He had a little soreness, and we’re being ultraconservative because it’s the third game of the preseason. We respect tremendously the fact that we’re in Brazil and what that means, and we’d love for everybody to play. But the reality is it’s too early to even press anything.’’ The Bulls improved to 3-0 in the preseason with an 83-81 victory over the Washington Wizards. In the fourth quarter, the 13,635 fans at the HSBC Arena chanted, “Rose .?.?. Rose .?.?. Rose.” “It was just a little soreness, and they made the decision to make sure I didn’t play,’’ Rose said after the game. “It’s nothing huge. I should be able to go next game. “You wouldn’t expect it to

happen. But when it does happen, you can’t be down about it. I know that it’s feeling better day by day. I’m just trying to stay positive.’’ Paxson said there were no plans for an MRI exam when the team returns Sunday to Chicago. He also dismissed the idea that if Rose would’ve returned late last season, he might’ve gotten these hiccups out of the way. “It’s irrelevant,’’ Paxson said. “The decision was made to not play last year, and now we’re going through this.’’ It also was revealed that this might not have been the first time Rose has been slowed by soreness since training camp began. “After the games, he’s felt good,’’ coach Tom Thibodeau said. ‘‘And sometimes if there’s soreness there, at this time of the season, we thought we wanted to be careful with how many days in a row he was going to go and things like that because it’s just the prudent thing to do. When we were going through two-adays, he sat out the evening or he was on a bike, as was the rest of the team. If he needs rest, we’re going to give him rest.’’ In the first two preseason games, Rose averaged 13 points, three assists, three rebounds and 2.5 steals. Center Joakim Noah (groin) also missed the game. “I’m not nervous at all,’’ Rose said. “If it was up to me, I would be playing. They made the decision to sit me out. I can’t complain about it.’’

CHICAGO – There are things Corey Crawford can do on nights like this, nights in which all the action seems to be about 150 feet down the ice, with eons passing between shots in his direction. He can talk to his teammates and direct traffic. He can come out of the net to play the puck more often. He can try counting to 21,261, one fan at a time. But Crawford knows better than to relax. In this league, even the worst team will eventually make a push. Corey Crawford “It’s never an easy game,” Crawford said. No, Crawford didn’t match Buffalo’s Ryan Miller save for save Saturday night in the Hawks’ 2-1 victory over the Sabres at the United Center. Didn’t have to. But when he was finally called upon, Crawford was alert and ready, making 28 saves – including several big stops down the stretch – as a sleepy game came to a hairy end. The Hawks overcame a tremendous 38-save performance by Miller and suffocated the league’s worst offense for most of the game before successfully closing out their second game in as many nights. But it was a hairy end to a one-sided game. The Hawks, playing their third game in four nights, were utterly dominant to start, peppering Miller with 20 shots in the first period. But only Ben Smith was able to get one past the Sabres goalie, deflecting a Brent Seabrook shot for his first goal of the year. For the winless Sabres – who have scored just six goals in six games now, were offsides on a 2-on-0 break and iced the puck on a third-period power play – that essentially proved to be an insurmountable lead. But Miller did everything humanly possible to keep Buffalo in the game, turning aside wave after wave of Hawks chances. After making 19 saves in the first period, he made 16

in the second, the Hawks finally getting a much-needed insurance goal with 24.9 seconds left when Patrick Kane scored on the power play off a beautiful cross-ice pass from Patrick Sharp, playing in his 600th game. Crawford made sure that two was enough in this one. After having precious little to do for the first 30 minutes, he was tested several times in the second half of the second period, twice stopping Steve Ott from close range, stoning Thomas Vanek on a two-on-one, and then making a glove save of a Tyler Myers shot while in the midst of a four-player pile-up. The Sabres were the aggressors in the third period, and Drew Stafford spoiled Crawford’s shutout bid with 8:11 left. But Crawford stopped a Vanek blast with less than five minutes to go, then disrupted Cody Hodgson’s rebound attempt. He also survived several scrambles in front of his net in the final minutes. The Sabres outshot the Hawks 13-4 in the third, but for the second straight night, the Hawks were able to hold on to a one-goal lead. It was a familiar story for the Hawks, who seem to have had the ice tilted in their favor for most of their games, but have just nine goals in their last four games. Hawks coach Joel Quenneville was pleased with the amount of chances generated, but wants to see his team finish better. He said they might need to be a little “greasier” around the net and search for ugly goals. Kane agreed that there’s still work to be done, no matter what the shots tally says. “I was even talking to [Jonathan Toews] on the bench, saying it feels like we’re not in midseason form yet,” Kane said. “We can make better plays here or there, maybe simple little details that’ll create scoring chances. Hopefully that’ll come as the season goes on and you play a few more games.”

Fitzgerald disgusted with Wildcats’ loss By SETH GRUEN Chicago Sun-Times MADISON, Wis. — At his postgame news conference, Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald was handed the final stats from the Wildcats’ 35-6 loss to Wisconsin (4-2, 2-1 Big Ten). Fitzgerald said he already had gone over the stats and passed them back more out of disgust than anything. There was plenty for Fitzgerald to be disgusted with. The last time the Wildcats failed to score a touchdown was in a 17-3 loss at Michigan on Oct. 28, 2006. “We were as held in check offensively as maybe my last five years [at Northwestern],” Fitzgerald said. “So we’ll start always with us as coaches, look at what happened schematically. “I hope it gives our guys a punch right in the face and wakes them up. It’s hard to win Big Ten football games. In my opinion, in sport, it’s the hardest thing to do, and when you get punched in the face, you got

to shake the cobwebs out and you got to respond.” The Wildcats ( 4-2, 0-2) didn’t run the ball well, and they lost running back Venric Mark in the first quarter to an ankle injury. But the most serious concerns surPat Fitzgerald rounded a passing game that totaled only 197 yards. Trevor Siemian played most of the game at quarterback after Kain Colter re-injured his ankle in the first quarter. Colter injured the ankle Tuesday in practice. He was a partial participant Wednesday and practiced fully the rest of the week before being cleared to play without any concern Saturday. He re-entered the game at quarterback on the first drive of the second quarter and played receiver in the third quarter before being ruled out for the rest of the game. But Colter was just as ineffective in the running game

and as a passer as Siemian was throughout the second half. Colter ran six times for 22 yards, and Siemian completed only 13 of 34 passes. It seemed Siemian either overthrew his receivers or hung on to the ball too long. He took five sacks; Colter took two. In the last two games, Siemian and Colter have been sacked 12 times. At least one was a coverage sack, but Fitzgerald wasn’t prepared to place blame on the offensive line or quarterbacks before watching the film of the game. Regardless of who is to blame, the relentless pressure the quarterbacks are seeing is hampering the passing game. Like in any game in which the offense is inept, there were several other breakdowns. But it begins with protecting the quarterback. “Obviously, a lot of stuff went wrong on offense for us,” Siemian said. “Give a lot of credit to Wisconsin, they’re a real good team. I thought they were really prepared for us. Just didn’t get it done.”

NIU remains undefeated

Penn St. stuns Michigan in 4 OTs

By ROSS JACOBSON DeKALB – While Northern Illinois’ offense uncharacteristically struggled against Akron on Saturday, the Huskie defense continued its consistent play and came up with a couple big stops down the stretch in a 27-20 win. Trailing by seven late in the fourth quarter, Akron twice had opportunities to drive for a tying score. Twice, NIU’s defense forced the Zips to turn the ball over on downs. The victory extended NIU’s Huskie Stadium winning streak to 23 games, a Mid-American Conference record, and also gave NIU 19 consecutive MAC wins, tying the previous mark set by Bowling Green in the early 1990s. “Our defense is a good defense,” NIU coach Rod Carey said. “They have the ability to carry us, and tonight they did. I’m really proud of them.” After Akron (1-6, 0-2 MAC) scored on its opening drive, NIU (6-0, 2-0) responded with 17 consecutive points as NIU executed a six-play, 74-yard drive that ended when Jordan Lynch scrambled to his right for an 18-yard touchdown to tie the game, 7-7. NIU’s defense forced a quick stop and Tyler Wedel, filling in for an injured Mat Sims, kicked his first career field goal, converting a 42yard attempt to give NIU a 10-7 lead. Another quick defensive stop gave NIU good field position and Lynch hit Desroy Maxwell over the middle for a 25-yard touchH. Rick Bamman – down.

The ASSOCIATED PRESS At STATE COLLEGE, Pa. – Bill Belton ran for a 2-yard touchdown in the fourth overtime to lift Penn State to a 43-40 victory over No. 18 Michigan. Penn State’s Christian Hackenberg was sensational in regulation on the tying drive, completing passes of 29 yards to Brandon Felder and 33 yards to Allen Robinson to bring the ball to the 1 with 29 seconds left.

The freshman quarterback sneaked in for the first rushing TD against Michigan this season, tying the game at 34-all. Brendan Gibbons kicked two field goals and missed two – one was blocked – in OT for the Wolverines (5-1, 1-1). Sam Ficken kicked two, and didn’t need to attempt a fourth, thanks to fourth-and-1 conversion from the 16 by Penn State (4-2, 1-1 Big Ten).

Michigan St. 42, Indiana 28: At East Lansing, Mich., Jer-

emy Langford scored four touchdowns, and the Spartans recovered from an early defensive breakdown to beat Indiana. Michigan State’s topranked defense played well for the most part, and the Spartans also dominated the time of possession, holding the ball for 37:28. Nebraska 44, Purdue 7: At West Lafayette, Ind., Ameer Abdullah ran for 126 yards and a touchdown to help Nebraska defeat Purdue.


Longhorns, Tigers pull off upsets The ASSOCIATED PRESS Texas snapped its losing streak in the Red River Rivalry and Missouri got its first signature win in the Southeastern Conference. The Longhorns and Tigers pulled off upsets in their big conference games Saturday, with Texas beating No. 12 Oklahoma 36-20, and No. 25 Missouri knocking off No. 7 Georgia 41-26.

Detroit almost makes history Sanchez, bullpen flirt with no-hitter By JIMMY GOLEN The Associated Press BOSTON – Anibal Sanchez and four Detroit Tigers relievers came within two outs of the first combined no-hitter in postseason history, striking out 17 to beat the Boston Red Sox, 1-0, Saturday night in the AL championship series opener.

Next Game 2: Detroit at Boston, 7 p.m. Sunday, Fox Boston was hitless until Daniel Nava had a soft, clean single to center field off Joaquin Benoit with one out in the ninth. Stephen Drew followed Nava and flied out to right and, with the potential tying run on second, Xander Bogaerts hit a game-ending popout to shortstop. Sanchez, the AL’s regular-season ERA leader, was pulled after six innings and 116 pitches. Al Alburquerque, Jose Ve-

ras, Drew Smyly and Benoit stretched the no-hitter into the ninth before Nava ended their bid for the third postseason no-hitter ever. Jhonny Peralta had an RBI single off Jon Lester in the sixth for the game’s only run. It was a day for pitching in the playoffs – St. Louis beat the Dodgers 1-0 in the NLCS. Sanchez walked a season-high six and struck out 12. Alburquerque got three outs, Veras got two and Smyly retired DaAP photo vid Ortiz on a harmless fly ball to center before Benoit pitched the ninth for the Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Anibal Sanchez pauses between pitches against the Red Sox in the sixth inning Saturday in Boston. save.

Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha celebrates Saturday in St. Louis after striking out the Dodgers’ Juan Uribe with the bases loaded to end the sixth inning.


Wacha, Cardinals blank L.A. for 2-0 lead By R.B. FALLSTROM The Associated Press ST. LOUIS – Matched against ace Clayton Kershaw, the only thing Michael Wacha lacked was a no-hit watch. “He’s becoming a guy a lot of teams wish they drafted,” teammate David Freese said. “What he’s done is remarkable, esNext pecially on this stage.” Game 3: St. W a c h a Louis at Los stared down a Angeles, 7 p.m. b a s e s - l o a d e d Monday, TBS test in the sixth inning and pitched into the seventh, and the kids in the bullpen also were impervious to October pressure, keeping the Los Angeles Dodgers bats silent for the second straight day and winning 1-0 Saturday for a 2-0 lead in the NL championship series. “I’m kind of at a loss for words to describe him,” said fellow rookie Kevin Siegrist, who got a big out to end the seventh. “It’s kind of ridiculous how well he’s done so far.” The Cardinals managed only two hits off Kershaw and the Dodgers, but Jon Jay’s sacrifice fly set up by Freese’s double and A.J. Ellis’ passed ball in the fifth stood up. The Dodgers’ scoreless streak in the NLCS reached 19 innings after they averaged 6½ runs in a four-game division series against Atlanta. Rookie fireballer Trevor Rosenthal struck out the side in the ninth with a heater reaching 101 mph, fanning pinch-hitter Andre Ethier on three pitches to end it. A day after outlasting Los Angeles, 3-2, in 13 innings, the Cardinals moved two wins away from the World Series. Game 3 is Monday at Dodger Stadium, with Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright facing rookie Hyun-Jin Ryu. The Dodgers have used their top two starters and have nothing to show for it. “We don’t get too far ahead of ourselves,” Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. “We don’t deny also what’s happened here the last two days. “Those were two very good wins, two very tough wins when you face starters like that.” Hanley Ramirez and Ethier were out of the Dodgers’ lineup with injuries after starting in the opener. Los Angeles missed a handful of opportunities, going 0 for 6 with runners in scoring position for a two-day total of 1 for 16.

Koepka closes in on PGA card The ASSOCIATED PRESS SAN MARTIN, Calif. – On a day of low scoring, Brooks Koepka kept up his end of the bargain and stayed in the lead at the Open. In his first regular PGA Tour event, Koepka had a 4-under-par 67 on Saturday to take a two-shot lead over George McNeill and Jason Kokrak into the final round at CordeValle. A win would mean more than just a trip to the Masters. Koepka would earn a twoyear exemption on the PGA Tour. The 23-year-old from Florida started the year with no status anywhere and since has earned membership on the Challenge Tour and European Tour. McNeill had a 62 and will play in the final group. He has won twice on the PGA Tour, both times opposite-field events. McNeill has never been to the Masters. LPGA Malaysia: At Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Lexi Thompson moved into position for her second LPGA Tour title, shooting a 5-under 66 to take a three-stroke lead. The 18-year-old American, the 2011 Navistar LPGA Classic winner, had five birdies in her bogeyfree round to reach 17-under 196 at Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club. She opened with rounds of 67 and 63. South Korea’s Ilhee Lee was sec-

Tournament leader Brooks Koepka hits from the ninth tee during the third round of the Open on Saturday in San Martin, Calif. ond after a 70. Norway’s Suzann Pettersen and China’s Shanshan Feng were third at 11 under. Pettersen, coming off consecutive victories in the Safeway Classic and Evian Championship, had a 67. Feng, the Reignwood LPGA Classic winner last week in China, shot 70. Portugal Masters: At Vilamoura, Portugal, Scotland’s Scott Jamieson matched the European Tour record with an 11-under 60 to pull

within two strokes of leader Paul Waring after the third round. The 18th player to shoot 60 on the tour, Jamieson settled for par on the final hole when his 15-foot birdie chip grazed the edge of the hole and stayed out. After opening with rounds of 66 and 73 to make the cut by a stroke, he had 11 birdies in the bogey-free round. Waring, from England, had a 67 to reach 16 under. Jamieson was 14 under along with Ireland’s Simon Thornton, Wales’ Jamie Donaldson and South Africa’s Hennie Otto. Thornton shot 65, Donaldson had a 66, and Otto a 69. SAS Championship: At Cary, N.C., Russ Cochran shot his second straight 6-under 66 to take a twostroke lead after the second round of the Champions Tour event. The 54-year-old left-hander, the 2010 winner at Prestonwood Country Club, birdied five of the first six holes, dropped a stroke on the par-5 seventh and added birdies on Nos. 15 and 17. He won the Principal Charity Classic in Iowa in June for his fourth victory on the 50-andover tour. Defending champion Bernhard Langer, Kirk Triplett and David Frost were tied for second. They each shot their second straight 67. Triplett is coming off a successful title defense two weeks ago in the First Tee Open at Pebble Beach.

Anxiety as stimulus hike in food stamps set to expire

VIEWS Brett Rowland

Expect big things from ‘Best Under 40’ The McHenry County Business Journal’s 2013 “Best Under 40” class underscores the talent produced in and attracted to this area. This year’s 13 honorees include entrepreneurs, business owners, civil servants and emerging professionals in a variety of fields. It’s an amazing group that will undoubtedly contribute significantly to the county’s businesses, nonprofits, local governments and community organizations in the years to come. A panel of four “Best Under 40” winners from 2012 selected these 13 people from among 50 nominees: • Mark Michalak, 37, of West Dundee, is the owner of Jersey Mike’s Subs franchises in Lake in the Hills and Crystal Lake. Michalak and his more than 30 employees raised more than $22,400 for local charities and organizations last year and are on pace to top that this year. • Erin McElroy, 33, of Crystal Lake, is the advancement coordinator at Lakeside Legacy Foundation. Her job is to help move the foundation forward. To that end, she has helped bring new events and programs to life at the Lakeside Legacy Arts Park and the historic Dole Mansion. • Kevin Slimko, 38, of Lake in the Hills, is the owner of Slim’s Barber Shop in Crystal Lake. Slimko learned the trade from Marino Lagatuz Jr. at Model Barber Shop in Chicago, which “had the world’s pickiest customers.” The father of two volunteers with organizations such as the Neurofibromatosis Network, which advocates for federal funding for NF research, and St. Baldrick’s Day, which raises funds for pediatric cancer research. • Michael Buchanan, 34, of McHenry, is the director of security for Centegra Health System. He served with the Army National Guard for four tours of active duty training troops at Fort Polk for Operation Iraqi Freedom. He volunteers with the Centegra Foundation, hangs lights at Hearthstone Communities and speaks to students about the meaning of Veterans Day. • Tyler Lewke, 38, of Bull Valley, is the CEO of Keller Williams Success Realty, a real estate company with 150 agents. He spent years working to save the Dole Mansion in Crystal Lake. He organized a campaign to purchase the historical property and create what now is the Lakeside Legacy Arts Park. • Geneva McClain, 35, of Woodstock, is CEO and owner of Just Quality Services Inc., a moving and services company based in Woodstock. On advice from a cousin, the mother of four children opened her own business and wrote her own “rags-to-riches” story, as one friend put it. • Brian Fowler, 37, of Crystal Lake, is vice president of commercial lending at Crystal Lake Bank & Trust Company.

Kyle Grillot –

McHenry native Anthony Salgado became the president this month of UniCarriers Americas, a company that builds forklifts at a 330,000-square-foot facility in Marengo.

Lifting to the top McHenry native takes reins at UniCarriers Americas By KEVIN P. CRAVER MARENGO – A growing local manufacturing business with worldwide reach now has a McHenry native at the helm. And Anthony Salgado has manufacturing growth – and more of the well-paying jobs that come with it – on his mind. Salgado, 43, took over Oct. 1 as president of UniCarriers Americas, the Marengo plant responsible for building forklifts for the company’s Western Hemisphere market and its network of 300 dealerships throughout the Americas. He takes over for Akiri Shiki, who was appointed chief operating officer for parent UniCarriers Corp., based in Tokyo. UniCarriers assumed the name earlier this year with a merger of forklift manufacturers Nissan Forklift and TCM. “I’m very pleased. I’ve been given this opportunity, and I take it very seriously,” Salgado said. Salgado graduated in 1988 from McHenry West High School, and was accepted to the U.S. Naval Academy, where he graduated with a degree in aerospace engineering. He spent six years in the Navy, and worked for GE before and just after returning to McHenry County. He started with UniCarriers – then Nissan Forklift – in 2001 as senior manager of quality. Salgado’s responsibilities increased over the years to include manufacturing engineering, warranty support and after-market service, and in 2008 he was promoted to vice president of manufacturing. In a statement, Shiki called Salgado’s appointment “a clear indication of our confidence in his leadership,” and that the team with Salgado at the helm is “in the best position to truly understand and serve the Americas market.”

Kyle Grillot –

UniCarriers Americas employee Jerry Mayberry inspects one of the forklifts inside the company’s 330,000-square-foot Marengo facility. The plant employs 500 people and manufactures between 12,000 and 15,000 forklifts a year. It has added 80 employees in the past year as the market has grown. “As we continue to focus on successfully growing and expanding our core business as a material handling solutions provider, Mr. Salgado has my full support, as well as that of the board of directors, and I expect that the UniCarriers Americas business will continue to be the benchmark within our global organization,” Shiki said. The plant employs 500 people and manufactures between 12,000 and 15,000 forklifts a year. It has added 80 employees in the past year as the market has grown, and Salgado projects UniCarriers will be adding a second shift in the next two or three years. Salgado has his eyes on the market in Brazil – the nation has the largest economy in Latin America, the second-largest in the Western Hemisphere behind the U.S., and the sixth-largest economy in the world by nominal GDP.

What it means McHenry native Anthony Salgado on Oct. 1 was named president of UniCarriers Americas, located in Marengo.

UniCarriers Corp. employs 4,500 people worldwide and made $1.9 billion last year. Salgado said the company’s strategy is to become one the top global manufacturers of forklifts over the next eight years. And that growth, he added, will mean growth, revenue and jobs locally. “I’m very pleased to be a part of this organization, and all we’ve accomplished, and all we’re giving back to our employees and our community,” Salgado said. Salgado lives in Richmond with his wife and three children.

CONCORD, N.H. – A temporary increase in food stamps expires Oct. 31, meaning for millions of Americans, the benefits that help put food on the table won’t stretch as far as they have for the past four years. Food stamps – actually the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – go to 47 million Americans a month, almost half of them children and teenagers. “Every week is a struggle as it is,” said Heidi Leno, 43, who lives in Concord with her husband, 9-year-old daughter and twin 5-year-olds. “We hate living paycheck to paycheck and you have to decide what gets paid.” Starting in 2009, the federal stimulus pumped $45.2 billion into SNAP, increasing what would have been a monthly benefit of $588 a month to $668 for an average household of four. In November, that same family will start getting $632 a month, about a 5 percent cut. The monthly benefits, which go to 1 in 7 Americans, fluctuate based on factors including food prices, income and inflation. Families and providers worry the expiration of the stimulus bump comes at a particularly bad time: • Though census figures from September show poverty remains stuck at around 22 percent, in some states, including New Hampshire, the number of children living in poverty is climbing. • The House voted to cut almost $4 billion a year from the roughly $80 billion-ayear program in an effort to find savings in the budget. A Senate bill would cut around $400 million a year. • In cold weather states, even a slight decrease in the benefit can trigger a decision between heating and eating. Heating fuel prices are expected to increase this year, too, the government warned this week. And the program could face another shortfall if the government is shuttered past Nov. 1. Danielle Walker, 37, was shopping at a discount Aldi store in Morgantown, W.Va., with what little cash she had, the end of September still three days away. Her food stamps had run out because of a previous cut from $500 to $61 a month that came about when the father of her 12-year-old son died, giving

Responsible fundraising helps protect nonprofits For most public charities and private foundations, fundraising is an integral activity in achieving the organizational mission. Even organizations that collect program fees to fund their activities, such as athletic organizations and theater groups, often rely on fundraising to meet operating expenses. While it seems like an easy way to defray the cost of programs, there are complex rules that nonprofit leaders must follow when soliciting contributions. One of the most important concepts to understand is the commerciality doctrine, for that is the foundation for a complex set of rules that define Unrelated Business Income, or UBI. The commerciality doctrine is an Internal Revenue Service principle that states, “Revenue from an activity, even one substantially related to the organization’s exempt purpose, cannot be exempt function income if it is conducted in a commercial manner.”

NONPROFITS Nancy Gonsiorek Plain and simple, the IRS wants to ensure that nonprofit organizations do not use their special tax-exempt status to compete, with this unfair tax advantage, against for-profit, taxpaying businesses. Additionally, while the federal government considers charitable giving a virtuous act and rewards taxpayers with a charitable contribution deduction, fundraising activities of the organization should never become an endeavor that is larger than the actual program activities supporting your mission. The UBI rules are one compliance tool the IRS employs to ensure responsible fundraising and deter unfair competition with for-profit businesses. Why should organizations care about UBI? Because an organization is required to report and pay

federal and state income taxes on UBI. This will require additional record-keeping, including the annual filing of federal and state Exempt Organization Income Tax Returns, and paying the associated tax at the regular corporate rates, on Unrelated Business Taxable Income. So what is Unrelated Business Income (UBI)? An activity will generate UBI if it is a trade of business; regularly carried on; and not substantially related to the organization’s exempt purpose. “A trade or business” means selling goods or services to generate income. “Regularly carried on” means the activity shows frequency and continuity and that is conducted in the same way that a for-profit business would operate. “Not substantially related” means that the activity is not important to furthering the exempt purpose of the organization. Of course tax law can never be that simple, and thankfully so.

Based on the above definition, fundraising activities often would create a taxable event. Exceptions (with examples) to the above definition include activities that are: • Conducted substantially by a volunteer workforce (while not defined, “substantially” is generally considered to be 85 percent or more); • Conducted for the convenience of members of the organization (the Little League concession stand); • Involving the sale of donated merchandise (most thrift shops); • Involving the distribution of low-cost articles (the pen or shopping bag you receive in return for your donation); • Involving income from convention or trade show participation (vendor booths at a business expo); • Involving income from qualified sponsorships (see my previous article); and • Traditional bingo (but not “instant bingo” pull-tabs or other


gambling). This explanation has greatly simplified a very complex area of tax law. For local communitybased nonprofits, fundraising is typically infrequent (held once a year) or carried on by substantially all volunteers and is therefore excepted from consideration as UBI. Nonprofit leaders must ensure that fundraising activities support programming but never outweigh the focus of the organization’s mission. When in doubt, leaders should provide the organization’s accountant with complete information regarding fundraising concepts prior to the endeavor to avoid the UBI fundraising trap.

Express Employment earns top awards CRYSTAL LAKE – The Crystal Lake Express Employment Professionals office earned top honors at the international staffing firm’s SALES Summit regional meeting Sept. 20 in Lombard. The Crystal Lake Express office received four awards for excellence and achievement in sales, recruitment and job placement, owner Terri Greeno said. The meeting also allowed the company’s staff to participate in learning sessions focused on sales and leadership, understanding local markets, building internal teams, providing world-class customer service and improving communication with customers. Meetings were held in Dallas, Detroit, Lombard, Meadowlands, N.J., Bellevue, Wash., Franklin, Tenn., Los Angeles and Orlando, and were attended by more than 1,600 representatives from more than 650 Express franchises across North America. “It was incredible to be recognized for our achievements this past year, and we can’t wait to use the information and ideas we received to better serve our McHenry County community,” Greeno said. “SALES Summit has inspired our office with innovative ways to improve service to our clients and associates. We are excited about what the next year holds for Express and our vibrant local economy.” The Crystal Lake Express Employment Professionals office opened in 2003 and

The honor, given to individuals who have made a contribution that enhanced the malt beverage industry on a state and/or national basis and/or has a proven record of promoting a positive image for the malt beverage industry, was awarded by NBWA 2012-2013 Chairman of the Board Bob Archer and NBWA President and CEO Craig Purser. “Bill Olson has been a champion for Illinois distributors the past 28 years, delivering results, and serving with distinction,” Purser said. “Bill confronted head on an issue in Illinois involving the independence of beer distributors and the existing rights of small brewers,” Archer said. “He persevered through intense, and some might say unprecedented, opposition by building a coalition of large and small brewers, retailers, distributors,

and public health groups to help clarify the separate and distinct roles of brewers and distributors. The compromise he helped achieve ensures that the state’s small brewers can maintain their current rights, while at the same time maintaining strong three-tier protections for the state of Illinois.” Under Olson’s management, numerous other changes to the Beer Industry Fair Dealing Act, which regulates a distributor’s relationship with suppliers, were enacted including: • Efforts to maintain distributor’s independence and creating market access for all brewers by prohibiting a brewer from preventing a wholesaler from selling products of other brewers. • A distributor’s right to brand “extensions,” the right to sell its distributorship, and the right for a distributorship to be passed to a family member. • The requirement that a brewer can only cancel a distribution agreement for good cause. Olson is a past president of the Wholesale Beer Association Executives, an organization of chief staff officers of state beer wholesaler associations, and serves as a WBAE representative on the Industry Affairs Committee of the National Beer Wholesalers Association. In 1989, he was elected by his peers to be “speaker” of the Illinois Third House, an organization of registered lobbyists in Illinois. Olson has been the recipient of several awards, including ABDI’s “Richard A. Mautino Award” for industry service in 1995. ABDI members play an increasing economic role to Illinois’ economy by providing thousands of jobs with benefits. They collect and pay $63 million each year in excise taxes to the state and pay more than $280 million in direct wages and health care benefits.

Jennifer Donald, whose family receives money from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, also known as food stamps, looks at her son’s Donovan, 4, drawing as his brother David, 6, (left) does his home work and daughter Jayla, 10, helps prepare dinner in Philadelphia. Families already buffeted by difficult economic times will see their food stamps benefits drop Nov. 1 as money allocated by the 2009 federal stimulus plan runs out. The average family of four will see benefits drop by $36 a month, a tough hit at a time when child poverty is climbing and Congress is debating a major cut to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.

Gregg: Stimulus not intended to last • FOOD STAMPS Continued from page D1 the boy survivor benefits that changed the family’s income level. With two disabled sons, 12 and 16, each with different dietary requirements, she can barely imagine how she’ll absorb another cut. So, she’ll visit food pantries, clip coupons and shop at the least expensive stores she can find. She also explains her situation to manufacturers, who send coupons. “I’m a mom who does outside-of-the-box things,” she said, adding, “I have to feed my boys.” But the stimulus was never intended to be a permanent source of money, former U.S. Sen. Judd Gregg of New Hampshire said. He opposed the stimulus, calling it at the time “a great deal of money not well spent.” “All stimulus funding was to be temporary,” Gregg, now the CEO of a banking industry group, said. John Cochrane, a professor of finance at the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business, also opposed the stimulus, saying it advanced the false assumption that “completely wasted federal spending helps the economy.” He said worries about people who need help were a legitimate concern but that food stamps create a disincentive to move to find a better job because recipients are worried they’ll lose the benefit. “At some point,” he said, “you have to be a little bit heartless.” One recipient, Jennifer

Volunteers gather food at the New Hampshire Food Bank in Manchester, N.H., to be delivered around the state. The temporary increase in food stamps, also know as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, expires Oct. 31, meaning for millions of Americans, the benefits that help them put food on the table every month won’t stretch as far as they have for the past four years. Donald, a 31-year-old mother of three in Philadelphia, said she counts on the family’s $460 monthly benefit to put food on the table. Her husband has a job sanitizing machines at meat-packing plants but it doesn’t pay enough. She’ll have to reduce the quality of the food she buys to stretch the benefits, then turn to food pantries once the money runs out. “I was mad and devastated and a little bit confused because we need our benefits,” Donald said in an interview at her row house, where she was preparing ground-beef tacos, a family favorite, while her 10-year-old daughter and two sons, 6 and 4, played and did

Dear Dave,

DAVE SAYS Dave Ramsey

Should term life insurance be purchased based on your current earnings or future, projected earnings?

– Dan I usually recommend people have 10 to 12 times their current annual income in a good, level term life insurance policy. However, if you have a solid reason to project your income jumping significantly in the near future, there’s nothing wrong with basing your amount of life insurance coverage on that figure – as long as you can afford it. Now, when I say a solid reason, I’m not talking about having an attitude of, “I’m smart. So, I’m going to make tons more money soon.” That’s ego, not reason. But if you’re in a residency finishing your medical degree, you can realistically look at making $40,000 to $50,000 for another year or two then making the jump to $200,000. That’s the kind of logical thinking and planning I’m talking about. In that scenario, a huge jump in income is almost assured. There’s nothing wrong with going ahead and getting more coverage. The purpose of life insurance is to take care of your family if something unexpected should happen to you.

“I was angry... [but] I was not surprised that someone could be that stupid. It was an incredibly stupid, very cold, callous email,” Jutta Kulic said from Sacramento, California, where she is travelling for a dog show. Kulic, who lives in Ohio, said she was taking care of Larry after his owner, a friend of hers, died of cancer. The friend wanted her dogs placed in “loving homes,” she said. Larry was on his way to Canada, when he vanished, she said. He was placed in a crate secured with several zip ties and Kulic said she gave staff specific instructions not to take him out. Air Canada said staff continues to search for Larry and have put up posters near the airport. Kulic, meanwhile, said she’s received reports of sightings and has reason to believe Larry was struck by a vehicle on a highway onramp sometime this week. But no remains have been found, and she said she’s not sure whether he survived.

automaker was not liable for the death of Noriko Uno. The 66-year-old was killed in 2009 when her 2006 Toyota Camry was struck by another car, then continued on a harrowing ride until it slammed into a telephone pole and tree. Toyota’s lawyers said the sedan’s design was not to blame and Uno likely mistook the gas pedal for the brake. Jurors cleared the Japanese automaker but decided that the other driver, who ran a

stop sign, should pay Uno’s family $10 million. The Uno case was one of more than 80 “unintended acceleration” lawsuits still pending in state courts against Toyota, including one that began this week in Oklahoma. It is the first “bellwether” case in state courts, chosen by a judge to help predict the potential outcome of other lawsuits making similar claims.


homework. “This is the way we eat right now. Live a day in our life before you can cut our benefits.” In Concord, the New Hampshire Food Bank has seen demand grow steadily, even as donations have fallen. The bank distributed 8.5 million pounds of food last year, compared with 4.5 million pounds at the start of the recession in 2007. Executive Director Mel Gosselin said the added pressure from expiration of the supplement will hurt. “That’s going to mean more reliance on emergency food systems that are already stretched to the max,” she said during a tour of the bank’s 60,000-square-foot warehouse.

Dear Dan,

MONTREAL – Air Canada is in the doghouse over a spokesman’s remarks following the disappearance of a dog who escaped airline staff at a California airport. The company says handlers at San Francisco International Airport took the dog out of his crate on Monday after his flight was delayed and the pet either slipped out of his collar or broke it. Air Canada says the dog – an Italian greyhound named Larry – bolted, and was last spotted about five files from the airport. The local CBS TV station took interest in Larry’s disappearance and says it asked the airline about its procedures after obtaining a statement about the incident. Instead, the station says it accidentally received an email from spokesman Peter Fitzpatrick urging his colleagues to ignore the inquiry – and what sounded like a jab at the U.S. government shutdown. “I think I would just ignore, it is local news doing

a story on a lost dog. Their entire government is shut down and about to default and this is how the US media spends its time,” the station said the email read. Word quickly spread online, with many voicing their outrage over the company’s response. “If you ever fly with your pet, you might not want to choose Air Canada,” one wrote on Twitter. The airline addressed the controversy in a statement Friday. “Air Canada acknowledges inappropriate comments were made in response to a reporter’s follow-up questions for additional details regarding Larry,” it said. “However, Air Canada has been providing the best available information to media on this matter. These comments do not reflect Air Canada’s standards or professionalism, and do not refer to the search for Larry by Air Canada employees which is ongoing.” Larry’s temporary owner said she was furious when she heard about the message.

You don’t want to go nuts and buy too much unnecessarily, but you should have enough to ensure that they’re well taken care of when you’re not around.

Dear Dave, My husband and I are debtfree except for our house. I’ve been having a discussion with a coworker over how much money to allow for fun in your budget. I think $100 for a bottle of wine is okay, but she says something like that is unreasonable. What do you think?

– Elizabeth

Dear Elizabeth, It depends entirely on your financial situation. Paying $100 for a bottle of wine is pretty dumb if you make only $20,000 a year. But what if you make $200,000 a year? Quit worrying and buy the wine! When you have a great income-to-asset ratio – and you’re living debt-free, have control of your money, and are saving and investing for the future – that’s the time to relax and enjoy a few things. You’ve got to take the

whole picture into account. Otherwise, you’ll get caught up in the whole envy and jealousy thing. I know a guy who makes $15 million a year, and recently he bought a $400,000 car. Now, I grew up in a small town in Tennessee. I can’t wrap my head around the idea of a $400,000 automobile. But as a ratio, that’s a very small part of his income. It would be like someone who makes $150,000 a year buying a $4,000 car. That’s a good rule of thumb for determining if something constitutes an outrageous purchase. If it’s a big-enough percentage of your income to rock your world and mess with your finances, then you’re spending too much. But to say that a certain item is too expensive or an irresponsible purchase based on price alone, that’s kind of silly.

Five Threats to Your Job-Hunting Stamina change careers. It’s natural. But letting it fester will destroy your momentum. “Job loss is probably one of the top three stressors in life,” she says. “It affects your identity and your sense of value. When you have days where you feel down, make small steps toward your goal.”

By Heather Boerner

Marathon runners know that the key to crossing the finish line first isn’t brute strength but stamina. The same goes for the job hunt. “A job search is always a mind game,” says independent career counselor Cathy Severson of Santa Barbara, California. “You don’t know if this is going to be a sprint or a marathon. Assume it will be a marathon, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised if it’s a sprint.” But it’s easy to lose stamina -and motivation -- especially in this economy. Watch for these stamina killers and their solutions:

Stamina-Killer No. 2: Job or Bust If the goal is just to land the job, you’re setting yourself up to fail every day you don’t get a job offer, says Severson. “You never know when an offer is going to appear,” she says. “When the focus shifts to the actual tasks, the job searcher feels a greater sense of control and is better able to handle the long haul.” Try these switches: Instead of “I will get a job in X field this year,” try “I will send out five resumes this week.” Instead of “I will have three job interviews this month,” try “I will call five people for informational interviews today.”

It’s tempting to up your odds of an interview by applying for any job for which you’re remotely qualified. Avoid that trap, says Perschel. “[Job interviewers] will know you’re not a good fit for the job” if you apply for anything, she says. “You’ll get more rejections, fewer responses and more negative feedback.” Your momentum will wane.

Stamina-Killer No. 4: Negative People and Information

“How do you feel after you talk to each person in your life -- drained or energized?” asks Severson. Apply that question across the board and you’ll know what -- and who -- is sapping your energy so you can avoid them.

TODAY - Don’t let instability worry you in the year ahead. A new beginning is overdue, and discovering new ways to use your talents will lead to an interesting future. Gravitate toward positive people and re-establish your position among your peers. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- A lastminute change of plans must not throw you off course. Follow through with your agenda and do your best to make your home and family life in tune with your pursuits. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Look at every angle before you make changes that may invite opposition. An emotional situation

can stand between you and your destination. Make adjustments if you want to achieve your goals. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Keep everything out in the open to avoid being blamed for something you didn’t do. A promise isn’t likely to be honored. Get an agreement in writing. A domestic change looks promising. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -Productivity must not be squashed by an emotional outburst. Listen if someone has a complaint, but don’t let it slow your progress. Overreacting will result in a costly mistake.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Listen to what’s being said and do your best to please and satisfy someone you love, but don’t let anyone restrict your freedom or limit what you can do. Follow your heart. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- An emotional situation will be expensive if you haven’t made the necessary adjustments to protect yourself. Underhandedness can be expected. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Getting together with old friends or colleagues will help put you back on track emotionally, mentally and physically. A favor will be granted

and will greatly help your cause. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Follow through with your long-held plans. A partnership will be enhanced if you discuss issues that could alter your lifestyle. An open house will lead to praise and compliments. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Take advantage of an opportunity to display what you have to offer, and you will receive an attractive proposal. A past partnership will not live up to your expectations. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Enjoyment is the name of the game. Try something new and exciting, and you will begin an adventure

that could lead to great things. A philosophy you discover will fit your current needs. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Arguments will be a waste of time. Keep a low profile and a tight grip on your wallet. Adventure and excitement may be enticing, but it will also be emotional and costly. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Stick to what and whom you know. An investment may sound good, but it isn’t likely to deliver what’s being promised. Do your research, and you’ll be praised for your findings.
