Congress votes to end shutdown Legislation permits Treasury to borrow; more than 2M federal workers to be paid day partial government shutdown, the culmination of an epic political drama that placed the U.S. economy at risk. The Senate voted first, a bipartisan 81-18 at midevening. That cleared the way for a final 285144 vote in the Republican-controlled House about two hours
By DAVID ESPO The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Up against a deadline, Congress passed and sent a waiting President Barack Obama legislation late Wednesday night to avoid a threatened national default and end the 16-
later on the bill, which hewed strictly to the terms Obama laid down when the twin crises erupted more than three weeks ago. The legislation would permit the Treasury to borrow normally through Feb. 7 or perhaps a month longer, and fund the government through Jan. 15.
More than 2 million federal workers would be paid – those who had remained on the job and those who had been furloughed. After the Senate approved the measure, Obama hailed the vote and quickly signed the bill early Thursday. “We’ll begin reopening our government immediate-
ly, and we can begin to lift this cloud of uncertainty from our businesses and the American people,” the president said. In the House, Rep. Harold Rogers, R-Ky., said, “After two long weeks, it is time to end this

GENERAL INFORMATION: 815-459-4040
Pining for slow news on Mental Health Board Although it’s often important news, I sigh each time another story breaks about disruptions on the McHenry County Mental Health Board. For many years, the Mental Health Board was rarely in the news. Certainly not on the front page. Perhaps we weren’t paying enough attention or perhaps times were more peaceful. More likely, there were plenty of other things distracting our attention. There are truths about the Mental Health Board that are difficult to argue: • It is an asset to McHenry County in the sense that local tax dollars are earmarked for local people so we don’t have to depend on this disaster of a state government for everything. • Some administrative functions of the Mental Health Board have exceeded their need. What often happens to taxing bodies over the years is they tend to swell into bureaucracies whose primary purpose inadvertently becomes justifying their own jobs instead of the purpose for which they
VIEWS Kevin Lyons were originally intended. • There are valuable agencies that depend on Mental Health Board funding to provide vital services to those with mental illness, developmental disabilities and individuals who struggle with substance abuse. • Helping these people is not political. In fact, it should be less political than sidewalk repair and highway maintenance. Whoever operates with political motives in funding social service agencies or providing treatment should get as far away from these matters as humanly possible. That goes for treatment providers, McHenry County Board members, Mental Health Board appointees and anyone else involved in what should be a simple process of distributing taxpayer dollars to agencies that can best use them to help members of this
community. Obviously, this message has been lost somewhere to the point that officials from a struggling substance abuse treatment agency were either incredibly naive or felt pressure to jeopardize their tax-exempt status by propping up local politicians. Then you had the bizarre reaction from McHenry County Board members Mike Walkup and Donna Kurtz, who chastised another County Board member, Paula Yensen, for daring to bring the subject of the politicking up publicly. While Walkup, Kurtz, Yensen and other County Board and Mental Health Board members have good overall intentions in reforming the Mental Health Board, the undercurrent of politics flowing through funding matters should be exposed, not hidden. It illustrates the problem. Like air pollution and traffic jams, politics usually forms at the intersection of money and power. But you try to eliminate it instead of pretending like it doesn’t exist.
There has been some reduction in Mental Health Board staff – from 33 to 19 full-time employees, which is a good start. Everyone seems to agree the highest percentage possible of distributed funds – around $8.4 million this year – should go directly to social service agencies. It would be even better if eventually the Mental Health Board only needed a handful of people to distribute funds. The United Way of Greater McHenry County, for example, is able to distribute its donated money to area nonprofits through allocation panels of volunteers. It seems to work. In the meantime, I’ll look forward to the day when the business of funding agencies whose primary purpose is to help people with real needs hums along in quiet manner that would grab few headlines.

Washington state approves rules for pot industry By GENE JOHNSON The Associated Press SEATTLE – Washington adopted rules Wednesday for the recreational sale of marijuana, creating what advocates hope will be a template for the drug’s legalization around the world. Mexico, Uruguay, Poland and other countries and states are reviewing the new regulations, which cover everything from the security at and size of licensed marijuana gardens, to how many pot stores can open in cities across the state, said Alison Holcomb, the Seattle
lawyer who drafted Washington’s marijuana initiative. Washington will tax pot highly and cap total production in the state at 80 metric tons. “We feel very proud of what we’re doing,” said Sharon Foster, chairwoman of the Washington Liquor Control Board, as she and her two colleagues approved the rules. “We are making history.” Washington and Colorado last year legalized the possession of up to an ounce of pot by adults over 21, with voters deciding to set up systems of state-licensed growers, processors and sellers. The measures
put state officials in the difficult position of crafting rules for a fledgling industry barred by federal law for more than seven decades. The board devised Washington’s regulations after nearly a year of research, debate and planning, including public hearings that drew hundreds of people around the state. Sales are expected to begin by the middle of next year, with supporters hoping taxed pot will bring the state tens or hundreds of millions of dollars, with much of the revenue directed to public health and drug-abuse prevention.
Colorado approved its pot industry rules last month, and sales are expected to start in some cities there at the beginning of 2014. The two states’ laws are largely similar, although Colorado voters are considering whether to tax marijuana at a much lower rate, with no limit on total production. Colorado also will allow stores to sell both recreational and medical marijuana. Both states will require such measures as seed-to-store tracking, background checks for license applicants and child-resistant packaging.

State supervisor’s job crafted after referral By JOHN O’CONNOR The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD – During hearings last summer into a scandal at Chicago’s Metra transit agency, a former executive claimed he was fired after resisting a recommendation by Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan to hike the pay of a Metra employee who had raised campaign money for the powerful lawmaker. Now, after being recom-
mended by Madigan again, that employee holds a state supervisor’s job that was crafted only after he interviewed for it, resembles the duties of his boss, and currently has no one to supervise, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press. The records show the state’s top civil service regulator noted the duplication of duties in initially opposing an exemption for the job from rules seeking to keep politics
out of hiring decisions. When the exemption was approved, Gov. Pat Quinn’s administration was able to hire Patrick Ward without considering anyone else for the $70,000 job, which ultimately was approved by the Democrat’s chief of staff. It’s not uncommon for elected officials to put in a good word for someone they believe deserves an Illinois government job. But Ward’s hiring raises questions about
the continuing role of “clout” in state government hiring decisions. Quinn and other state leaders have boasted about cleaning up the state’s practices following controversies that landed his two predecessors, Rod Blagojevich and George Ryan, in prison. CMS officials deny that Ward received special consideration. They noted the labor relations officer worked 25 years in the city of Chicago’s
personnel department and has a master’s degree. Madigan spokesman Steve Brown confirmed the speaker “passed along” Ward’s resume to state officials. “He has an outstanding work record with everything he’s done in his career,” Brown said. “Beyond that, you’d have to talk to Pat Ward.” Ward, contacted at his Chicago office, referred all questions to the CMS media office.
Quinn has $2.9M in campaign fund Sponsor reviving talks on state gambling expansion
By SARA BURNETT The Associated Press CHICAGO – Gov. Pat Quinn has socked away $2.9 million for his 2014 re-election campaign – more than the combined total of his four potential Republican rivals, who continue to battle for donors and the GOP nomination. Quinn, a Chicago Democrat who has no major challenger in the March primary, raised about $813,000 during the three-month period that ended Sept. 30, according to reports filed with the state Tuesday. On the Republican side, state Treasurer Dan Rutherford of Chenoa raised about $337,000 and finished the period with about $1.2 million, the most of any GOP candidate. He said more than 1,400 people contributed, which he called a sign that he has “a dramatically broad and deep donor base,” and said internal polls show the campaign is well positioned. “We are in extremely good shape,” said Rutherford, the only statewide GOP officeholder vying for the nomination. Billionaire businessman Bruce Rauner raised about $1 million during the third quarter – more than anyone else in the race. But the political newcomer from Winnetka also spent $1.1 million, much of it on advertising to increase his

Quinn has socked away $2.9 million for his 2014 re-election campaign – more than all four of his potential Republican rivals combined. name recognition. That left him with about $594,000 in his campaign fund. Still, Rauner has the personal wealth and connections to spend considerably more. He also will benefit from a committee he controls that was created to push for term limits. Unlike candidate political committees – which have caps on how much money they may accept from individuals and groups – ballot initiative committees like Rauner’s Committee for Legislative Reform and Term Limits can accept unlimited donations. In the third quarter, the committee brought in about $606,000, finishing with about $459,000 in the bank. The top donors were businessman Richard Uihlein and investor
Howard Rich, who each donated $250,000, and who each already have maxed out the amount – $5,300 – they could give to Rauner’s candidate political fund for the primary. Investor Sam Zell gave $100,000 to the term limits committee. In a statement earlier this month, Rauner said while fundraising is important, he’s committed to running a grassroots campaign. State Sen. Bill Brady of Bloomington, who won his party’s nomination in 2010 and lost to Quinn in the general election, raised $66,000 in the third quarter and had about $273,000 on hand. He said he isn’t concerned that others have more money. “I’ve been outspent before and won,” Brady said.
CHICAGO – The sponsor of a bill that would add five new casinos in Illinois and allow slot machines at both major Chicago airports says he plans to revive talks on the measure next week in hopes of coming up with a deal. Rep. Robert Rita, a Democrat from Blue Island, said Wednesday that he wants to begin discussing multiple concerns that prevented a House vote on the bill during the spring legislative session. A hearing is scheduled for Wednesday in Springfield before the House Executive Committee. “Let’s put the attention back on what we had going ... to ultimately pass a bill the governor will sign,” Rita said. The measure could provide state and local governments millions in much-needed revenue. It would add casinos in Chicago, Rockford, Danville, Chicago’s south suburbs and Lake County. It also
calls for numerous slot machines, including at O’Hare and Midway international airports, and would set aside revenues for economically depressed communities and other groups. Rita opted not to call the bill on the final day of the spring session, saying it wasn’t ready and he needed time to talk with opponents about their concerns. Among the biggest critics is Illinois Gaming Board Chairman Aaron Jaffe, who says the bill doesn’t include enough oversight of a Chicago casino to prevent corruption. Others raised concerns about how revenue would be shared, the location of the Lake County casino and the tax structure for existing and new casinos. A vote on the measure is unlikely during the fall veto session, though Rita said he wouldn’t entirely rule it out. Gov. Pat Quinn, a Chicago Democrat, has vetoed two previous gambling bills, saying they didn’t provide enough ethical protections.
8STATE BRIEFS Quigley acting on O’Hare noise concerns WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Mike Quigley wants the Federal Aviation Administration and the city of Chicago to lessen the impact of noise from a new runway opening Thursday at O’Hare International Airport. The Democratic congressman is taking residents’ concerns to city and federal officials in hopes they will expand access to a program that puts sound insulation in homes. Quigley said Tuesday he’s also written to the Chicago Department of Aviation asking it to expand a program encouraging pilots to direct nighttime flights over less populated areas, such as forest preserves or industrial areas.
No fare increases in proposed Pace budget ARLINGTON HEIGHTS – Officials with the Pace suburban bus system say they don’t expect fares to increase next year. But riders could see other changes. The Pace Board of Directors released its proposed 2014 budget Tuesday. Board Chairman Richard Kwasneski said the agency is in good financial shape so the spending plan doesn’t call for fare hikes. But the agency is considering eliminating “transfer cards” for passengers who pay cash. It also could get rid of 10-Ride Plus tickets. The proposed changes are part of a switch to a new Ventra card system by Pace and the Chicago Transit Authority.

Obama health target: 500K signups by Oct. 31 By RICARDO ALONSO–ZALDIVAR The Associated Press WASHINGTON – For the first month alone, the Obama administration projected that nearly a half million people would sign up for the new health insurance markets, according to an internal memo obtained by The Associated Press. But that was before the markets opened to a cascade of computer problems. If the glitches persist and
frustrated consumers give up trying, that initial goal, described as modest in the memo, could slip out of reach. The Sept. 5 memo, for Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, lists monthly enrollment targets for each state and Washington, D.C., through March 31, the last day of the initial open enrollment period under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. The new online insurance
markets, called exchanges in some states, are supposed to be the portals to coverage for most of the nation’s nearly 50 million uninsured people. Middle-class people without job-based coverage can shop for subsidized private plans, while low-income people are steered to an expanded version of Medicaid in states that have agreed to expand that safety net program. Although the Oct. 1 launch of the markets was a top pri-
ority for the White House, the rollout was quickly overwhelmed by computer problems, and many potential customers still have not been able to enroll. Insurers say signups are coming through, but slowly. The administration has refused to release enrollment numbers. A surge of interest by consumers going online appeared to trigger the problems, which also seem to involve underlying software flaws and design
would sign up for health insurance under the program by Oct. 31. And that was portrayed as a slow start. “We expect enrollment in the initial months to be low,” said the memo titled “Projected Monthly Enrollment Targets for Health Insurance Marketplaces in 2014.” A big jump was expected after Thanksgiving, since Dec. 15 is the last day people can sign up so their coverage will take effect Jan. 1.
shortcomings undetected or overlooked in testing. The administration is holding the explanation close, while working feverishly to fix the glitches – with incomplete results so far. In Cincinnati on Wednesday, Sebelius urged Americans to keep coming back to healthcare.gov if they can’t get through. “Prices don’t change and the product doesn’t run out,” she said. In the memo, officials estimated that 494,620 people
Decision day in N.J.’s Senate race The ASSOCIATED PRESS TRENTON, N.J. – New Jersey’s abbreviated U.S. Senate race went to the voters Wednesday with candidates characterizing the contest as a referendum on the partisan gridlock that has paralyzed Washington in recent weeks. Democrat Cory Booker and Republican Steve Lonegan each cast a ballot early in the morning in the special election to fill the seat of the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg, who died in June. The election is the first since the partial federal government shutdown began more than two weeks ago. It came the same day Senate
accused Congress of failing voters by not finding a way to work together. Lonegan supported the shutdown, arguing the Affordable Care Act should be delayed a year and objecting to the concept of government-directed health insurance. After voting in Bogota, the city he led as mayor for three terms, Lonegan said he has been able to unite Republicans of all stripes. “We’ve unified and I’m proud of that,” he said. “The entire Republican party, from the tea party to the moderate wing to pro-life and not so pro-life. Everybody who cares about individual liberty.”
leaders announced a deal had been struck to reopen the government and avert a Treasury default. “This is the only election in America right now where we will get a chance to make a statement about what is going on in Washington,” Booker said after voting in downtown Newark. “This is a chance for us to send a message about the shutdown, about the gridlock, about all those forces that my opponent represents – the tea party – that says we shouldn’t compromise, we shouldn’t work together.” Booker, the high-profile mayor of New Jersey’s largest city, had circulated a petition to end the shutdown and
A Los Angeles police officer patrols Wednesday outside the departure area at Los Angeles International Airport. Police at Los Angeles International Airport are continuing their stepped-up patrols the day after the arrest of a baggage handler in connection with a pair of small explosions.
Police say worker had set off LAX dry ice bombs as prank The ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES – A baggage handler arrested after dry ice bombs exploded at Los Angeles International Airport planted the devices as a prank, police said Wednesday. The motive was disclosed a day after the arrest of Dicarlo Bennett, a 28-year-old employee for the ground handling company Servisair. “I think we can safely say he is not a terrorist or an organized crime boss. He did this for his own amusement,” said Los Angeles police Deputy Chief Michael Downing, who heads the department’s counterterrorism and special operations bureau. No one was hurt on Sunday when two plastic bottles packed with dry ice exploded in an employee bathroom and on the airport’s tarmac. An unexploded device was found Monday night. As a result of the incident, airport officials plan to meet with law enforcement authorities to examine potential security enhancements at the nation’s second-busiest airport. The meeting also will explore the handling and transport of dry ice and other hazardous materials and pos-
sible improvements to those procedures. Arif Alikhan, deputy executive director for Homeland Security and Law Enforcement at Los Angeles World Airports, said such meetings are routine after problems. “We’ll look at all layers of security existing at the airport, including technology, physical infrastructure, the partnership of tenants, awareness of employees to potential hazardous items like dry ice,” Alikhan said. Workers at the airport must pass a criminal background check before they can get a security badge for access to restricted areas. On Tuesday, police arrested Bennett, who was booked for possession of a destructive device near an aircraft and held on $1 million bail. It was not immediately clear whether Bennett had a lawyer. A message left on a phone number listed at an address for Bennett was not returned. Despite the arrest, travelers saw stepped-up security patrols at all terminals as well as the airfield, Los Angeles Airport Police spokeswoman Belinda Nettles said. Dry ice is routinely used by aircraft catering companies and restaurants to keep
perishable food safe. Bennett took dry ice from a plane and placed a loaded bottle in an employee bathroom, according to a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation who wasn’t authorized to speak publicly and asked to remain anonymous. The commotion caused by the explosion delayed several flights. Remnants of another device were found the same night on a tarmac outside the main international terminal. Police had pursued a theory that the bombs were placed by a disgruntled employee due to a labor dispute. Servisair said in an emailed statement that it had no comment beyond confirming that Bennett was an employee of Servisair at the time of incident. The bombs were made by putting dry ice in 20-ounce plastic bottles. When a bottle is capped, pressure builds up because of a chemical reaction and can cause an explosion. The LAX explosions recalled a May incident at Disneyland, in which police said an employee placed dry icepacked bottles in a food cart and trash can. Both exploded; no one was injured.

Brotherhood’s cohesion is its pitfall 4 dead after boat The ASSOCIATED PRESS GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip – On the day of his induction, Baraa Rantisi was told to wait near a mosque. At the appointed time, a white car drove up. Baraa and the driver exchanged passwords – the name and nickname of an early Muslim leader – and Baraa got in. Then a man in a sparsely furnished room instructed Baraa and two other recruits on the values of Islam. Baraa placed his hand on the Quran, the Muslim holy book, and swore “unwavering loyalty and obedience.” With that oath 10 years ago, Baraa joined the Muslim Brotherhood, an exclusive movement that sees itself on a divine mission to establish Islamic rule. The story of Baraa, 24, and his extended family shows how the Brotherhood’s cohesion and discipline have built it up into a successful movement that seized power in the Arab Spring. But some argue that the same closeness and authoritarian nature has worked against the Brotherhood, which now faces challenges in Egypt, Gaza and Tunisia. “They fail to make the transition from a closed organization into an open and broad-based transparent government,” said Fawaz A. Gerges of the London School of Economics. “They behaved,
Mohammed Rantisi, 55, prays June 24 al Fajr “early morning” prayer behind the Imam at a mosque in Gaza City. On the day of his induction, Baraa, Mohammed’s son, was told to wait near a mosque. A white car drove up. Secret passwords were exchanged. And then he was sworn into the Muslim Brotherhood, an exclusive movement that sees itself on a divine mission to establish Islamic rule. while in government, exactly as they behave internally.” Over several months, AP reporters had rare access to the Rantisis, a Brotherhood family that is perhaps the closest thing to a political dynasty in the movement in Gaza. Baraa’s father, Mohammed, his mother, Kifah, and some of his siblings, uncles and cousins are Brotherhood members. The movement forms the core of their lives. It was the Brotherhood that selected devout Kifah from a wealthy family to marry Mohammed, now 55. It also gave him $2,000 to set up a
clinic. In return, the orthopedic surgeon treated patients for free at a local mosque and paid 2.5 percent of his salary in monthly dues. The Rantisis reflect the basic recruitment principles of the Brotherhood: family and religion. The neighborhood mosque serves as a base. From there, Brothers coach football, organize trips and tutor students for free while scrutinizing potential recruits, said Baraa’s uncle Nabhan, 58, a former recruitment chief. Smokers and slackers are disqualified. The most dedicated mosque regulars are
offered tryouts, where they must perform their five daily prayers at the mosque and discuss religious books assigned to them. They must also score at least 70 out of 100 on written and oral exams: Nabhan said the failure rate during his tenure was 10 percent. Probation is up to three years. Baraa’s uncle Salah, 52, a gynecologist, is a supervisor in charge of about 500 Brothers, who decides how to spend the monthly membership dues. One member recently got $84 toward his university tuition, and another $200 toward wedding expenses. Hamas, the Brotherhood branch that has ruled Gaza since 2007, is unique in the global movement because of its violent struggle against Israel, but it adheres to the organization’s principles. As in Egypt, the Brothers in Gaza have built a network of clinics, kindergartens, schools and welfare programs. The Brotherhood extends from North America to Bangladesh. Brothers in Qatar, Turkey, Malaysia and other countries offer scholarships to Gaza students, such as Salah’s son Mohammed, who is studying medicine in Tunisia. Despite its close-knit nature, the Brotherhood – along with the Rantisi household – is now split over direction, amid a crisis of power in Egypt and its spillover into Gaza.
capsizes off coast The ASSOCIATED PRESS MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – Ten people were found clinging to the hull of a small boat that capsized early Wednesday off South Florida, trapping the bodies of four dead women and one survivor in a tiny pocket of air beneath it. The fifteen people appeared to be making a perilous journey that thousands try each year. Migrants from Haiti, Cuba and other Caribbean countries routinely attempt to illegally enter the U.S. by reaching Florida’s coast in overloaded or unseaworthy vessels, often through established smuggling networks that include islands in the Bahamas and Turks and Caicos. Early Wednesday, one of the survivors called 911 on a cellphone, alerting authorities to their location seven miles east of Miami. “Sadly, and tragically, we did find four females, adults, underneath the boat that had perished,” said Coast Guard Cmdr. Darren Caprara. The survivor found when Coast Guard officials flipped over the boat was suffering seizures, and he was taken by boat to a Miami Beach hospital, officials said. He was treated and released to feder-
al law enforcement. The rest of the survivors were in good condition and were taken into custody aboard a Coast Guard vessel while authorities investigated whether they were part of a human smuggling operation. It was not immediately clear whether they would be brought to the U.S. or sent back to their home countries. “Well, obviously, 15 people on a boat, transiting in the middle of the night with no life jackets is a very, very unsafe condition,” Caprara said. Caprara said that authorities were working to confirm that the people on the boat were Haitian and Jamaican. Authorities didn’t immediately confirm that those on the boat that capsized Wednesday were migrants fleeing their home countries. However, the circumstances made it seem likely that they were part of a global phenomenon of people taking desperate risks to escape poverty and instability, said David Abraham, who teaches immigration law at the University of Miami School of Law. In a case earlier this month, hundreds of migrants packed into smugglers’ boats that capsized on their way from Africa to Europe.
Michigan gay marriage lawsuit will go on trial in February By ED WHITE The Associated Press DETROIT – Same-sex couples queued up all afternoon at county courthouses, some even carrying wedding flowers. Then a federal judge deciding whether to throw out Michigan’s gay marriage ban shocked everyone, saying simply: Wait ’til next year.
After hearing arguments and poring over a stack of legal briefs, U.S. District Judge Bernard Friedman said Wednesday he needs to hear from experts on Feb. 25 before settling the fate of a 2004 Michigan constitutional amendment that recognizes marriage as being only between a man and a woman. “This was never a scenar-
io we imagined,” Oakland County Clerk Lisa Brown said. Same-sex couples were at her office, anxious to get a marriage license if the judge ruled in their favor. “One couple has been together for 53 years,” Brown added. “I think they’ve waited long enough.” The lawsuit, brought by Jayne Rowse and April DeBo-
er, two Detroit-area nurses in a lesbian relationship, argues that Michigan’s constitutional amendment violates the U.S. Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause, which forbids states from treating people differently. The amendment was approved by 59 percent of voters in 2004. Friedman clearly caught

lawyers on both sides off guard, as they had agreed to have him decide the issue on arguments and briefs. More than 100 people were in the courtroom, anticipating a decision in favor of gay marriage, and dozens more watched a video feed of the hearing in a nearby room. A groan went up in that room when Friedman said he’s not
ready to make a decision. Thirteen states and the District of Columbia allow gay marriage. An attorney for Michigan said the U.S. Supreme Court has recognized that states have authority to regulate marriage. Kristin Heyse noted that more than 2.5 million voters supported the amendment.

Fool’s errand or heroic stand? GOP on Cruz, Lee By DONNA CASSATA The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Fool’s errand or heroic stand? The bipartisan compromise on Wednesday to avoid a financial default and end a 16-day partial government shutdown cast a spotlight on Republican Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah, who had precipitated the crises with their demand that President Barack Obama gut his 3-year-old health care law. Other Republicans who repeatedly had warned the two about their quixotic move took little pleasure in saying “I-told-you-so.” After they failed to block the biggest expansion of the health care law, the shutdown and near default left the GOP reeling. “He’s the one who got us into this. He had no strategy. And it caused us to waste 16 days and get ourselves killed in the polls,” Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., said of Cruz. “All for a guy who was fraudulent from the start.” With a heavy dose of gallows humor, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Republicans’ poll “numbers have gone down, Obamacare’s somehow mysteriously have gone up. And other than that, this has been great.” Cruz, a freshman who engaged in a 21-hour talkathon and egged on House Republicans for the fight, was unapologetic and critical of his GOP Senate colleagues. “Imagine a different world,” Cruz said in a Senate speech. “If all 46 Senate Republicans had stood together and said, we are united against the train wreck that is Obamacare.” In fact, all Senate Repub-
licans oppose the law; what they had challenged was the two senators’ tactics. Lee offered no regrets, vowing to continue the fight to repeal the health care law. “This is not over,” he said in a Senate speech. Their defiance has been wildly cheered by outside conservative groups that have made money on the months-long dispute and the far right flank that hails Cruz and Lee for what they call Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas a principled, courageous stand. Cruz, a potential presidential candidate in 2016, has seized the headlines and Sen. Mike collected nearLee, R-Utah ly $800,000 for his political action committee in the past three months. “I think Ted Cruz and Mike Lee did exactly the job that those of us who helped them get elected” wanted them to do, said Drew Ryun of the Madison Project, one of the first conservative organizations to back Cruz last year in his long-shot Senate bid. Among tea party Republicans, Cruz’s popularity has climbed, from a 47 percent favorability rating in July to 74 percent, according to a Pew Research Center poll released Wednesday. Non-tea party Republicans see him in a less favorable light, with his unfavorable numbers up to 31 percent. To Senate Republicans, Cruz and Lee are near pari-
ahs, publicly slammed for a tactic that has taken a heavy toll on the GOP’s standing and privately criticized for helping outside groups targeting Republican incumbents before next year’s congressional elections. The latest Washington Post-ABC News poll showed three-quarters of Americans disapproving of the way congressional Republicans were handling the budget. “What did I say three weeks ago, what did I say a month ago, it was a fool’s errand,” said Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., waving a copy of the latest poll for reporters clustered in the Senate basement earlier this week. “I knew that it was going to be a disaster and it is a disaster.” Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, a fierce opponent of the health care law, called the effort to unravel the law a “fantasy.” Compromise has never been part of the vocabulary for Lee, who was elected in 2010, and Cruz, a member of the Senate for some 10 months. The two have been relegated to the sidelines during the Senate negotiations. Neither was part of a bipartisan group that jump-started talks. The two even skipped Tuesday’s weekly closed-door Republican luncheon. In private, Republicans have been dismissive and confrontational with Cruz, according to lawmakers and congressional aides. At one meeting, Cruz presented his own poll numbers and argued that Republicans weren’t suffering despite the overwhelming evidence suggesting they were, prompting eye-rolling from his colleagues.
Bill passed well before deadline • SHUTDOWN Continued from page A1 government shutdown. It’s time to take the threat of default off the table. It’s time to restore some sanity to this place.” The stock market surged higher at the prospect of an end to the crisis that also had threatened to shake confidence in the U.S. economy overseas Republicans conceded defeat after a long struggle. “We fought the good fight. We just didn’t win,” conceded House Speaker John Boehner as lawmakers lined up to vote on a bill that includes nothing for GOP lawmakers who had demanded to eradicate or scale back Obama’s signature health care overhaul. “The compromise we reached will provide our economy with the stability it desperately needs,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, declaring that the nation “came to the brink of disaster” before sealing an
agreement. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell, who negotiated the deal with Reid, emphasized that it preserved a round of spending cuts negotiated two years ago with Obama and Democrats. As a result, he said, “government spending has declined for two years in a row” for the first time since the Korean War. “And we’re not going back on this agreement,” he added. Only a temporary truce, the measure set a time frame of early next winter for the next likely clash between Obama and the Republicans over spending and borrowing. But for now, government was lurching back to life. In one example, officials met to discuss plans for gearing back up at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, where 307 employees remained at work during the partial shutdown and more than 8,000 were furloughed. After weeks of gridlock, the measure had support from the White House, most
if not all Democrats in Congress and many Republicans fearful of the economic impact of a default. Boehner and the rest of the top GOP leadership told their rank and file in advance they would vote for the measure. In the end, Republicans split 144 against and 87 in favor. All 198 voting Democrats were supporters. Final passage came in plenty of time to assure Obama’s signature before the administration’s 11:59 p.m. Thursday deadline. That was when Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew said the government would reach the current $16.7 trillion debt limit and could no longer borrow to meet its obligations. Tea party-aligned lawmakers who triggered the shutdown that began on Oct. 1 said they would vote against the legislation. Significantly, though, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and others agreed not to use the Senate’s cumbersome 18th-century rules to slow the bill’s progress. OW I DON’T KN CE ON OF ANYPLA E EARTH WHER AS AVE YOU CAN H AS AT MUCH FUN ! HARMS FARM

Budget to be posted later this week • BUDGET Continued from page A1 tax extension under the tax cap. Members chose last year to turn down the 3 percent increase the county could have collected on this year’s bills, citing struggling property owners irate that tax bills have been increasing despite the fact that home values have fallen. First-year growth – which has been significant-
What’s next The board will vote to ratify the budget at its Nov. 19 night meeting. The county fiscal year starts Dec. 1. ly depressed since the bursting of the housing bubble – is not capped. The tax cap law in place for more than 20 years has had an unforeseen effect since the bubble burst. When home
values are rising, the law limits the increase that taxing bodies can receive over the previous year to either 5 percent or the rate of inflation, whichever is less. But when values fall, a scenario state lawmakers never envisioned, the tax cap ensures that governments receive the inflationary rate if they so choose. The budget will be posted later this week on the county’s website at co.mchenry. il.us.
75 people in county died from heroin since ’09 • HEROIN Continued from page A1 how an addict’s mind operates differently than someone who is not on heroin. “It’s craving, needing, wanting, obsessing, running, stealing, lying, selling, pawn shops, link cards, Chicago, Rockford, Waukegan. How am I going to get there? Where am I going to get money from? Who am I going to lie to? Who am I going to steal from? What’s valuable in my mother’s house?” she said. “It is just completely a squirrel cage in your brain and you’re just obsessing, obsessing, obsessing. And nothing matters. Nothing. And you are not comforted or return to sanity in your own mind until you get your fix.” But after going to jail, two trips to rehab and finding the right treatment to fight her disease, Djus’ $400-a-day drug habit finally came to an end. She is one of the lucky ones. Since 2009, 75 people in McHenry County have died from a heroin overdose. The county first noticed an uptick in heroin use in 2002 as area treatment centers were flooded with requests for heroin detox. At the same time, the coroner’s office noticed a significant increase in heroin over-
“It’s craving, needing, wanting, obsessing, running, stealing, lying, selling, pawn shops, link cards, Chicago, Rockford, Waukegan. How am I going to get there? Where am I going to get money from? Who am I going to lie to? Who am I going to steal from? What’s valuable in my mother’s house?” Michelle Djus Recovering heroin addict
dose deaths. That year, the county held its first “Heroin Awareness Forum” to discuss the issue with the community. Wednesday was the county’s second community forum since 2002, and since then the heroin deaths, and the purity of the drug, have continued to rise. “Back in the late ’60s and ’70s when there was a huge heroin epidemic throughout the entire United States, purity levels were at the max 20-25 percent back then,” Sgt. Mike Muraski of the McHenry
County Sheriff’s Office said. “Now you’re looking at purity levels that are hitting 60 to 70 percent. We’re even seeing increasingly in some sample tests almost 90 percent purity … you’re getting three times as much heroin in one dose than you were before.” Wednesday’s forum came just one day after Centegra said it believes the hospital treated someone who injected themselves with krokodil, a heroin substitute made of opiates and gasoline that turns users’ skin scaly green and causes it subsequently rot off. But some experts at the forum were skeptical that the Russian-based drug has made its way to the U.S. as it hasn’t been confirmed by the Drug Enforcement Administration. The forum was an opportunity for addicts to share their stories, for concerned parents to ask questions and for McHenry County residents to learn more about the deadly and highly-addictive drug. And it gave Djus, who used to hate other people unless they were useful in her search for drugs or money, a chance to celebrate her recovery with 200 people who couldn’t have been more proud of her. “I love people just because. And people love me just because. And it’s a really great feeling,” she said.

Typhoon, Syria rebel video claims new split in opposition mudslides kill many in Japan By KARIN LAUB
The Associated Press
By MARI YAMAGUCHI The Associated Press TOKYO – A typhoon caused deadly mudslides that buried people and destroyed homes on a Japanese island Wednesday before sweeping up the Pacific coast, grounding hundreds of flights and disrupting Tokyo’s transportation during the morning rush. At least 17 deaths were reported and nearly 50 people were missing. Hardest hit from Typhoon Wipha was Izu Oshima island, which is about 75 miles south of Tokyo. Rescuers found 16 bodies, most of them buried by mudslides, police and town officials said. Dozens of homes were destroyed, and about 45 people were missing. A woman from Tokyo died after falling into a river and being washed 10 kilometers (6 miles) downriver to Yokohama, police said. Two sixthgrade boys and another person were missing on Japan’s main island, Honshu, the Fire and Disaster Management Agency said. More than 350 homes were damaged or destroyed, including 283 on Izu Oshima, it said. The typhoon, which stayed offshore in the Pacific, had sustained winds of 78 miles per hour, with gusts up to 110 mph, before it was downgraded to a tropical storm Wednesday evening. The storm was moving northeast, off the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido. More than 30 inches of rain fell on Izu Oshima during a 24hour period ending Wednesday morning, the most since record-keeping began in 1991.
Soccer loss spins into Egypt’s politics By HAMZA HENDAWI The Associated Press CAIRO – A hammering 6-1 loss to Ghana was more than just a blow to Egypt’s faltering hopes for a spot in next year’s World Cup finals. The humiliation immediately became entangled in Egypt’s bitterly divisive politics. Supporters of Egypt’s ousted Islamist president crowed that the debacle was payback for the military coup that removed Mohammed Morsi. Politics even intruded during Tuesday night’s World Cup qualifier match, held in the Ghanaian town of Kumasi. Some Ghana fans in the stands held up a four-finger gesture symbolizing support for Morsi and the Islamists – apparently to taunt the Egyptian fans, some of whom replied with angry thumbsdown gestures. “The coup team has been defeated,” proclaimed one Morsi supporter, Mohammed Ibrahim, on Twitter. Another blamed military chief Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, who removed Morsi. “You jinxed us, el-Sissi,” Mohammed Dardeer wrote on Facebook, calling the general “religiously defiled.” Egypt has been profoundly polarized by the July 3 coup. Since the ouster of Morsi – the country’s first freely elected president – the new military-backed government has waged a fierce crackdown on his Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist allies. Supporters of the military say Morsi and the Islamists tried to take over Egypt and represent a violent, radical force. Morsi supporters, in turn, accuse the military of wrecking a fledgling democracy and leading the country back into autocracy.
BEIRUT – Several dozen rebel groups in southern Syria have broken with the main political opposition group in exile, a local commander said in a video posted Wednesday, dealing a potential new setback to Western efforts to
unify moderates battling President Bashar Assad’s regime. The Turkey-based Syrian National Coalition, the political arm of the Free Syrian Army rebel group, has long struggled to win respect and recognition from the fighters. It is widely seen as cut off from events on the ground and ineffective in funneling aid and
weapons to the rebels. In the video, a rebel in military fatigues read a statement with about two dozen fighters standing behind him, some holding a banner with FSA emblems. FSA spokesman Louay Mikdad told The Associated Press that the video is authentic and identified the man
speaking as a captain in one of the rebel groups, Anwar al-Sunna, which posted the video. The rebel in the video said political opposition leaders failed to represent those trying to bring down Assad. “We announce that we withdraw our recognition from any political group that claims to represents us, first
among them the Coalition and its leadership which have relinquished the principles of the homeland and the revolution,” he said. The man suggested rebel groups would reorganize, saying that “we are unifying the forces of the revolution militarily and politically,” but did not explain further.

When you’re elected, know your limits Elected officials are held to a higher standard. Once in office, elected officials represent the body for which they have been elected to and the people who voted them into office. This is true at all times, whether in line at the grocery store or sitting in city hall chambers during a board meeting. It’s apparently a lesson that Island Lake Trustee Shannon Fox still needs to For the record learn. The Island Once in office, elected ofLake Village ficials represent the body for Board last week which they have been elected rightly voted to to and the people who voted reprimand Fox for them into office. sending emails to Lake County officials – including County Board members and the sheriff – that informed them of a property dispute involving Mike’s Towing owner Mike Johnson and suggested that they not do business with his company. “I have written our mayor and chief asking that they suspend use of this tow company and I encourage you to do the same,” Fox said in the email. Fox signed it as a village trustee and chairman of the grants committee from her village email address. Whether intentional or not, sending such an email gives the perception that Fox was trying to use her influence as a village trustee to harm a village resident and business over a private matter. As the Island Lake Village Board resolution states, Fox improperly represented herself in the emails and may have given the impression she was representing the village. Unfortunately, Fox doesn’t recognize her responsibility as an elected official. She said she does not plan to retract the emails, which means copies of the village’s resolution will be sent to the email recipients. This behavior is unacceptable and an abuse of the public’s trust. We hope Fox someday recognizes her mistake and that other public officials can learn from it.
Continuity at the Fed The last thing President Obama wants to do right now is worsen world financial markets’ current case of the jitters, so his nomination of Janet Yellen to succeed Ben Bernanke as head of the Federal Reserve sent a calming signal of continuity. But Yellen is not a Bernanke clone. She’ll keep the Fed on its current course, at least for now, but she portends new directions in the future. Yellen, if confirmed as expected by the Senate, will be the Fed’s first chairwoman – indeed, the first woman to head any major nation’s central bank. She has more experience in central banking than any immediate predecessor, having served as the Fed’s vice chairwoman, as a member of the Fed’s Board of Governors and as head of the San Francisco Federal Reserve Bank. And she’ll be the first person in her position whose spouse is a Nobel Prize-winning economist – she’s married to George Akerlof, who shared the prize in 2001. Yellen will also be the first Democrat to lead the Fed in a quarter-century. President Clinton reappointed Alan Greenspan, first appointed by President Reagan, in 1996 and 2000 because he didn’t want to rock the boat during an economic expansion. Obama reappointed Bernanke, first appointed by President George W. Bush, in 2010 because he wanted a steady hand at the Fed as the nation emerged from the financial crisis of two years earlier. A change in party identification won’t make much difference, at least initially. The Federal Reserve is more technocratic than partisan, and its leader’s allegiance is to a stable economy rather than to a party. Yellen is expected to continue Bernanke’s monetary policies – particularly his efforts to stimulate the economy through massive purchases of government bonds. A sharper focus on employment would be welcome in a nation that has endured high jobless rates since the financial crisis. Progress toward full employment would relieve social stress, and also would move the government toward fiscal balance by increasing tax revenue and reducing demand for public services. A pivot toward such a policy would invite criticism from economists and politicians whose first concern is inflation. Continuity and change – not a bad combination in a Fed chairwoman. The markets demand the former, and the nation’s economy needs a dose of the latter. The (Eugene, Ore.) Register-Guard

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Helping Algonquin congestion To the Editor: In response to your article “Firms make pitch for Randall Road Project” (Oct. 8), may I suggest that there are some measures that could be made easily at little or no cost to help some of the congestion in intersections along Randall and Algonquin roads. Of course, I haven’t made a formal study, but I notice that many times the green lights and, especially, green left-turn arrows are not long enough to clear the traffic. For example, traveling east on Algonquin Road, I have sat through several lights to cross Randall Road because the light was only green for a few seconds. This causes a lot of congestion, affecting people entering and exiting businesses in that area. I have noticed similar settings at other intersections farther east along Algonquin Road. Lastly, although Algonquin Road will be back to four lanes next year, the eastbound-westbound
traffic across Route 31 still will be impeded by poor light timing at Harrison and Algonquin roads, which gridlocks the intersection and creates an accident-prone situation. While studies are fine to determine need for longer-term solutions, if the village of Algonquin wants to improve the situation, please work with IDOT and other entities to apply some timing changes to the lights to help clear intersections of traffic during each cycle.

Rising population a danger To the Editor: Were it not for America’s singlepayer socialized medicine for seniors, I would have died last year. Physicians found tumors growing out of control in my chest that were potentially lethal.

our own saved my life. The wisdom of acting aggressively and collectively to fight cancer has saved countless lives. Now we are facing an even more insidious growth, which, if we don’t fight it just as aggressively, has the potential to cause unimaginable human suffering and death – the growth of the human population. We are way beyond the point where further growth is desirable. Growth, both demographic and economic, is, like cancer, devouring Earth’s life support systems. This unprecedented situation calls for a uniquely aggressive collective effort toward stopping

growth and, inevitably, reversing it. This means reducing the number of people worldwide, in the U.S., in Illinois, and, yes, in McHenry County. There is no problem on Earth – or in McHenry County – that isn’t made more difficult by too many people, let alone adding even more. We must begin planning seriously how to humanely reduce our numbers, both globally and locally, before nature does it for us, brutally and arbitrarily. It’s time we stopped worshiping at the altar of growth and started valuing quality of human life over quantity. Donovan C. Wilkin Woodstock
Voters win when redistricting becomes impartial SPRINGFIELD – When it comes to state legislative races, most of us don’t have much of a choice in the voting booth. In fact, during the last general election, 42 percent of Illinois lawmakers didn’t have an opponent at all. And an additional 53 percent faced only nominal opposition, winning their races by a margin greater than 5 percent. That leaves few competitive legislative races. In 2012, only 10 of 194 legislative races – a mere 5 percent – were actually close. So in most Statehouse elections, the winner was a foregone conclusion long before Election Day. “I think a lot of people don’t run because they don’t think they can win,” said Neil Anderson, of Rock Island, who is seeking the Republican nomination for state Senate. “The system we have now favors one party. The public deserves to have a choice in candidates.” Anderson, who expects to run against incumbent state Sen. Mike Jacobs, D-East Moline, in the 2014 general election said he has been told his race may well be the most competitive state Senate race in Illinois. In fact, it may be the only competitive Senate race.
VIEWS Scott Reeder That’s not good. When politicians fear the voters, we have democracy. When voters fear the government, we have something far more sinister. Today, we have an unprecedented level of arrogance in the Illinois General Assembly. Instead of having a Legislature beholden to the voters, we have a membership that kowtows to legislative leaders, union bosses and other special interests. How did we get in this predicament? The professional political class has found a way to keep most lawmakers from being held accountable. Instead of voters picking legislators, legislators are picking their voters. It all begins with how the boundaries of Illinois legislative districts are drawn. Using sophisticated computer programs loaded full of voter history, census data, demographic trends and a whole host of other information, lawmakers
8THE FIRST AMENDMENT
draw up legislative districts. “In Illinois, the public really isn’t a consideration in the redistricting process,” said Mike Lawrence, former director of the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute at Southern Illinois University. “The two considerations that do go into legislative redistricting, right now, are consolidation of political power and, to a lesser extent, protection of incumbents. Neither serves the public particularly well. That’s why I support a change.” Instead of drawing districts with a good mix of Republicans, Democrats and independents, state politicians are deliberately drawn to favor one party – the one in control. Democrats control the House, Senate and governor’s office. The maps they have drawn disproportionately favor their political party here in the Prairie State. Republicans aren’t angels, either. In the states where the GOP has control, they often do the same thing. It seems whichever party is in control, the professional politicians want to curtail the ability of voters to be heard. A coalition called Yes for Independent Maps is pushing to have voters consider a constitu-
tional amendment next year that would take the power to draw legislative maps away from legislators. Instead, an independent commission would draw the boundaries of legislative districts. The commission members would be drawn from a pool of experts and selected in a manner similar to how jury members are picked. Instead of having the Land of Lincoln drawn into a patchwork of odd-looking districts designed to boost the electoral prospects of one particular political party, the commissioners would draw compact districts and divorce themselves from partisan considerations. It would seem a step in the right direction. Whether it is on an athletic field, the business world or at the ballot box, competition makes for a better society. It’s time that more lawmakers learn to compete in the marketplace of ideas. The only sure winners in such a scenario are the voters. • Scott Reeder is a veteran statehouse reporter and the journalist in residence at the Illinois Policy Institute.

MCC board split on expansion D-157 Some trustees not convinced new health and fitness facility is needed By JEFF ENGELHARDT email@example.com CRYSTAL LAKE – After months of meetings and commissioning an independent consultant study on the feasibility of a new health and fitness facility, McHenry County College trustees remain divided on the project. A proposed facility that potentially could house health science classrooms, laboratory space, a health care clinic and a fitness cen-
ter was targeted as the first step in a $278 million expansion plan for the college in the next 10 years, but some trustees are not convinced a new facility is needed at all. Board Chairman Ron Parrish said that while he “100 percent” supports the need to provide health care programs, he no longer is sure a new facility is the best option after going through the roughly 200-page report and attending multiple committees on the subject.
“I’m way far away from being convinced that we need to be doing brick and mortar [expansion] before we’ve actually vetted these other ideas,” Parrish said. Those other ideas include moving courses off campus, exploring more cooperative efforts with area health care providers and other community colleges and bolstering online instruction. But trustees such as Mary Miller said part of the feedback and reports the board
received showed that students wanted the facility to be on campus, and important laboratory work and patient interaction practice could not be done in online offerings. “You’re always going to need health care,” Miller said in support of the expansion. “The health care industry is going to grow like you can’t even believe with the [Affordable Care Act].”

ALGONQUIN: SEE PAINTINGS, SCULPTURES
Carpentersville man gets 66 years Algonquin to host Sentenced for raping young girl, beating woman with hammer in 2012 By JEFF ENGELHARDT firstname.lastname@example.org ST. CHARLES – A Carpentersville man was sentenced to 66 years in prison for raping a young girl and beating a woman with a hammer in a 2012 attack. Daniel J. Happ, 29, of the 1600 block of Seminole Drive in Carpentersville, received 45 years for predatory criminal sexual assault, a Class X felony; 20 years for attempted murder, a Class X felony; and one year for aggravated animal cruelty, a Class 4 felony. On Aug. 9, Happ pleaded
guilty but mentally ill to the charges, allowing him to be placed in a mental health facility to receive treatment. Once treatment is complete, he must serve the remainder of the sentence. Charges stem from a March 6, 2012, incident when Happ visited a female acquaintance who lived on the 1200 block of Brookdale Drive in Carpentersville with her boyfriend and his four children, according to a Kane County State’s Attorney news release. With the boyfriend at work that evening, Happ waited for
the woman and the children to go to bed before stabbing the family dog several times with a kitchen knife. He then went upstairs and beat the woman in the face and head with a claw hammer. After showering, Happ got one of the children, an 8-yearold girl, out of bed, showed her the woman and dog and threatened to do the same to her and her siblings if she did not obey his wishes, the release said. He then sexually assaulted the girl. Happ must serve at least 85 percent of the sentences for the predatory criminal
sexual assault and attempted murder. He is eligible for day-for-day credit for the aggravated animal cruelty sentence. “We hope that these victims feel they have received justice as they continue to recover from their physical and emotional injuries,” Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon said in the release. “The facts of this case are very disturbing. Mr. Happ is a violent man who poses a grave danger to society. This sentence guarantees that our community will be a much safer place for all.”

Some trustees worry about project’s size, cost • EXPANSION Continued from page B1 The size and cost of the project concerned other trustees such as Molly Walsh and Tom Wilbeck. The cheapest proposed option would add 75,500 gross square feet all dedicated for health science classrooms and laboratories. The most expensive option would add about 130,400 gross square feet and include a fitness center and clinic along with the classrooms and laboratories. “I believe there is a need, but my problem is the size we’re talking about,” Walsh said. “I just feel we’re approaching this the wrong way.” College faculty and administrators said the need for
space in nursing and health programs has grown significantly in recent years. Many programs have maxed out enrollment, and Tony Miksa, vice president of academic and student affairs, said nursing students have had to go to other institutions to finish degrees because of waiting lists. “This is something for the next 30 years you would not expect to see changed,” Miksa said of planning for the future. “We don’t want to cut away at the functionality of the programs.” Trustee Linda Liddell said board members should continue to approach the project one step at a time and not rush to a decision either way. “This is a big project,” she said. “We don’t want to push it.”
Health Board members. The Mental Health Board has lost eight members since September 2012. Five resigned before their terms expired, two were ousted, and one did not seek reappointment. New members have faced a new economic reality with dwindling state mental health funding and dropping property values. The board’s levy is at its statutory maximum, so it cannot raise its rate to compensate like many other taxing bodies have. The board’s 2014 budget raises its contributions to client agencies from $8.4 million to $8.7 million, while slashing its administrative staff from 33 to 19 full-time equivalents. The Mental Health Board interviewed director candidates earlier this year and narrowed the field to two, but had to start over when one of them dropped out to take another job.

The sites include shops, schools, libraries, local restaurants and offices, such as Horizon Chiropractic, Nero’s Pizza & Pub, Cafe Firefly and Diamond Physical Therapy, among other places. The pieces of art are on loan from participating artists for a year, the village said. Algonquin started its public art program in 2005. It’s “a way for the community to define itself, highlight culture and arts, create an image for the community that is unique, and bring artwork to the public and public places,” Mason said.

Under the designs, new plant would match power of old one • WASTEWATER Continued from page B1 project last year because of a buried landfill on-site and consequently cut ties with the original project’s designer and constructor. “We definitely recognize that the project is going to get off the ground. We feel very confident about the design,” City Administrator Gary Boden said. “We clearly aren’t going to build where we can’t build.” Earlier this spring, H.R. Green, the new firm tasked with engineering the expansion, unveiled designs that avoided the buried landfill, just north of the existing plant along Route 23 near the Kishwaukee River. The new plant, under the designs, would match the power of the existing plant, which pumps enough wastewater a day to serve 12,000 residents. The existing plant will be kept idle once the project

“We definitely recognize that the project is going to get off the ground. We feel very confident about the design. We clearly aren’t going to build where we can’t build.” Gary Boden City administrator is completed, but it could be turned back on to give the city additional capacity if Marengo’s population grows. Construction is expected to be completed by January 2015. City officials will tentatively begin repaying the $12 million IEPA loan, which carries a lower interest rate than the original project, by June 2015. With activity on the project escalating, residents can soon expect their wastewater rates to again increase.
The council had temporarily cut rates last year following the project’s suspension, after nearly doubling the rates earlier to finance the original IEPA loan. The council will look to incrementally raise wastewater rates throughout the next two years as construction progresses. Aldermen will vote next spring to raise wastewater rates for both residential and commercial users $1 per 1,000 gallons consumed a quarter, Boden said. That increase could be effective by May. Aldermen then would meet in spring 2015 to raise both rates an additional $1 per 1,000 gallons consumed. That increase would bring rates back to the original increase aldermen made before the project was suspended last fall, Boden said. “We are not trying to take in more money than what is necessary,” he said. “We are trying to phase [rate increases] in as the need occurs.”

SEDOM has shifted focus amid school’s choice to bring more programs in-house • SEDOM Continued from page B1 which is made up of Richmond-Burton Community High School, has two students that are in SEDOM programs, one 18 years old and the other 17 years old. District 2, which covers the same geographic area and feeds into District 157, also has an eighth-grader who is enrolled in SEDOM programs. Students that require this amount of support can typically remain in school until they are 22 years old, Miller said. “It is a fluid situation from year to year,” board Vice President Dave Thomas said. “We could have a family move into the district tomorrow.” As more districts have brought special education programs in-house and have worked collaboratively to provide services closer to home, SEDOM has shifted its focus to “a center for the medically fragile” because
“That will increase the cost of those programs. That’s something that I can’t necessarily predict, how much it will increase, but it will increase because the rest of us will have to absorb those costs.” Jackie Miller District 157 special education director they “have significant needs and are a unique challenge,” Miller said. It also created a twotiered system with different pay scales. Most of the member districts are in Tier 2, which means they pay an administrative assessment cost and tuition plus 5 percent of the federal dollars they receive through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.
In Tier 1, school districts keep their federal dollars but pay a higher tuition rate if they end up using SEDOM programs. They pay the same administrative rate. District 200 was in Tier 1 before it voted to leave the cooperative. Two other districts are currently in Tier 1, and another three schools are transitioning. Because the higher amount District 157 would pay in tuition if it switched to Tier 1 is more than the federal dollars it passes along to SEDOM, district staff is recommending it stay in Tier 2. But as other districts consider leaving the cooperative and switching tiers, staff members will continue to keep an eye on costs and will make a recommendation if need be, Superintendent Dan Oest said. “That will increase the cost of those programs,” Miller said. “That’s something that I can’t necessarily predict, how much it will increase, but it will increase because the rest of us will have to absorb those costs.”

Tim Davis talks on the phone of his pharmacy in New Brighton, Pa. Davis uses several apps and three wearable devices to track his physical activity, vitals and calorie intake. When Davis tipped the scales at 318 pounds two years ago, he bought a Fitbit gadget to track his physical activity and the Lose It! app on his phone to track calories. He bought a Wi-Fi-enabled scale that published his daily weight on his Twitter feed and turned to other apps to track his pulse, blood pressure, daily moods and medications. At one point, Davis said he was using 15 different apps and gadgets, which he said helped him drop 64 pounds that first year.
Tracking daily life Need motivation? There’s an app or gadget for that By ANNE FLAHERTY The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Ever suspect you do more housework than your spouse? Or that certain tasks at work raise your blood pressure? Maybe you wonder why you’re sneezing more lately, or if carbs are really what is making you tired after lunch? Turns out, there’s an app or gadget to test all of that. Advancements in wearable body sensors, mobile applications and other gadgets mean nearly everything we do can be captured, logged and analyzed. And everyday consumers are jumping at the chance to conduct their own experiments – tracking sleep, caffeine intake, kids’ studying habits, household chores, even whether a baby is nursing more frequently on mom’s left breast versus her right. “I don’t know if I’d use the word ‘obsessed,’” said Ernesto Ramirez, a self-tracking devotee who helped to organize a two-day conference on the subject last week in San Francisco. Speakers at past “Quantified Self” conferences have included a man who developed his own app to see if he could walk every street in Manhattan and a dad who used trackers on his kids to monitor chores. “I think there’s an overall trend toward curiosity and proving knowledge of one’s self in the world,” Ramirez said. When Tim Davis of Beaver, Pa., tipped the scales at 318 pounds two years ago, he bought a Fitbit gadget to track his physical activity and the Lose It! app on his phone to track calories. He bought a Wi-Fi-enabled scale that published his daily weight on his Twitter feed and turned to other apps to track his pulse, blood pressure, daily moods and medications. At one point, Davis said he was using 15 different apps and gadgets, which he said helped him drop 64 pounds that first year. “It’s the second-by-second, minuteby-minute changes that really did it,” said Davis, 39. “If you’re the type of person who likes gadgets and devices
Tim Davis wears his FitBit (green) and Nike FuelBand (black) devices he uses to track his physical activity and habits. and to collect metrics, you’re also the kind of person who does not like gaps in data.” A pediatrician in Kansas City, Mo., Natasha Bugert, said apps that track newborn feedings and sleep patterns have become wildly popular among her patients, and she now encourages parents to send her the data before their appointments. “In the first few weeks, parents are so tired. It’s really hard for them to give you objective data,” Bugert said. Public health advocates and researchers say tracking technology could be used to encourage people to use less gasoline, conserve water or drive slower by giving them real-time feedback on their daily habits. It also could expose causes of medical conditions that baffle doctors. HopeLab, based in Redwood, Calif., is one nonprofit looking to harness technology to improve health. It has developed a $30 movement-tracking device for kids called a “Zamzee,” and a website that rewards activity with online points and badges. HopeLab has developed video games for young cancer patients that lets them pretend to blast cancer cells. Researchers there say their studies have shown the game improved patients’ moods and encouraged them to
stick with treatment. “When you give people a sense of autonomy, a sense of agency, that can actually be very transformative to their health,” HopeLab spokesman Richard Tate said. Ramirez said he thinks the next step will be embedding sensors in nearly everything a person encounters throughout the day and linking that information together. Think of a car that won’t start if you’ve consumed too much alcohol or a light bulb that changes colors when it’s time to go to bed. Industry watchers say these kinds of data-driven apps are finding their place in a market that has struggled to profit from advertising. Raj Aggarwal, CEO of Localytics, a Boston-based analytics firm, says mobile games are still by far the most popular among consumers, but their fan base can be fickle. If a data-logging app is useful enough, it can convince consumers that they should pay for upgraded subscriptions or premium services that earn the developers money. One mobile app called “GymPact” has found a novel way of making money off its consumers’ data.

The award honors individuals who have provided outstanding contributions and service to the Illinois Association of Realtors and its local communities. Miller received the award Oct. 1 at the IAR Business Meetings in St. Charles. The award was announced in a news release this week. “I was totally overwhelmed,” Miller said. “For me, this is the star on top of the Christmas tree because it comes from my peers statewide for a career’s worth of effort.”
Miller, a licensed managing broker, continuing education instructor and pre-license instructor, began her real estate career in 1987. She has been involved in the Heartland Realtor Organization, formerly the McHenry County AsSue Miller sociation of Realtors, serving as president in 2004 and 2013. She was named her local association’s Realtor of the Year in 2004 and 2010 and was the local association’s 1997 Distinguished Member of the Year. “Sue has been very giving of herself since she got into the industry 25 years ago,” Heartland Realtor Organization CEO Jim Haisler said. “She has worked tirelessly to serve the industry and the public throughout her life, and this recognition
just solidifies that her contributions are endless.” Miller has been an active IAR member, serving multiple terms on the state organization’s board of directors and lending her expertise to more than 30 committees, including leadership roles as chairwoman of the Education Working Group, Technology Working Group and the Grievance Committee. For the National Association of Realtors, Miller has served on the Diversity Committee and on the NAR Board of Directors. She is a member of the Women’s Council of Realtors and is a past president of the Illinois Chapter of the Council of Residential Specialists. She is a “Sterling R” contributor to the Realtors Political Action Committee, which means she donates more than $1,000 to the PAC annually. A resident of McHenry, Miller
also has been dedicated to the local community. She is a member of the McHenry Area Chamber of Commerce, McHenry Elementary Education Foundation and the nonprofit community growth planning group Imagine McHenry County. Miller also has held leadership positions with the McHenry Nunda Public Library District, Riverside Area Business Association and her local school district’s education committee. “Sue has been incredibly supportive of the community and the district,” said Josh Reitz, executive director of the McHenry Elementary Education Foundation and assistant superintendent of McHenry District 15. He said Miller has served on the foundation’s board of directors for more than 15 years. Twenty-five Realtors have earned the IAR Distinguished Service Award since 2001.

Obamacare dims outlook for suburban office space Unless you live under a rock, you have no doubt heard about the launch of Obamacare earlier this month. It turns out that in spite of what President Barack Obama told us early on in the selling of the Affordable Care Act, it is not so affordable. Growing up in the 1960s during the Vietnam era, I was subject to the draft. There was a lottery system based on date of birth. I remember waiting for the letter in the mail telling me I had to come down to the local Army base to be processed. That experience reminds me of a recent, similar letter I got in the mail. This time it wasn’t from the Army. It was from my insurance company, stating that my Blue Cross Blue Shield Health Insurance Plan was no longer going to be available to me. How could this be? The president said we could keep
COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE Bruce Kaplan our current plan if we so chose. After calling my insurance broker in a panic, I got the “good news.” I could get a different plan from Blue Cross Blue Shield, but the cheapest rate would be 50 percent more than my current rate. How could that be? The president said that my rates would go down. Did you get your letter yet? How does it feel to be lied to by your president? I almost forgot, this is a column about commercial real estate and it is my hope to relate Obamacare to the commercial office market. Obamacare has been called a “jobs killer” by many of its opponents. It forces employers to avoid hiring a
50th employee because that’s what kicks in the requirement to provide expensive health insurance to all their employees. The other aspect of this train wreck of a law is it forces employers to give health insurance to employees who work more than 30 hours a week. So employers are cutting back full-time employees to part time to avoid the hefty cost of being forced to pay for all full-time employees’ health insurance. When you get your hours cut by 25 percent, your take-home pay gets cut 25 percent, and that hurts. The suburban office market has been hit hard by the economic recession. According to a recent Chicagorealestatedaily.com article, the last time the office vacancy rate in suburban Chicago was below 20 percent was the second quarter of 2007, before the recession began. The vacancy rate now is hovering
short of 25 percent, meaning nearly one out of every four square feet of office space is vacant. My office clients are all over my case wondering how far they must drop their asking rents in order to fill up their vacant office space. The answer, short of giving away the store for free, is a four-letter word “jobs.” As of August, about 11.3 million Americans remained unemployed, according to CNN Money article published Oct. 3. Political uncertainty, said Mark Zandi, chief economist for Moody’s Analytics, is the reason for the loss of 1 million jobs over the past few years. Obamacare with all its nuances, quirky requirements and oppressive taxes is a large part of that uncertainty. Here’s the rub: Office space is needed by businesses when they hire employees who produce a product or
service. Someone needs to be hired before they become an employee who physically takes up office space. If there are no jobs, there is no net new employees and the inventory of office space remains high. As much as I would like to predict a different outcome in the near future, it appears that the office market is going to be sluggish for the foreseeable future. Obamacare is clearly a drag on the office market and the prospect of this repressive law being repealed is looking dim. The good news in all this is that if, by chance, you need some office space, you can get a really good deal right about now.

Apps raise privacy concerns • TRACKING Continued from page B4 The app lets people bet against one another as to whether they will go to the gym. The non-exercisers have to pay the exercisers, with GymPact taking a cut. But what becomes of all this data? In theory, most apps let you delete your information. But programs such as the FitBit reserve the right to keep and analyze your information, and possibly pass along the data to third parties to make sure the program works as promised. What would happen if these tech companies decide to package and sell all that data? Could a person ever be denied a job or life insurance, for example, if their mobile app showed they tried but never quit smoking? Poorly encrypted data or lax privacy controls could become a problem, too.
In 2011, some FitBit users were surprised to see their sexual activity logs pop up in Google searches; that’s something FitBit’s privacy settings allowed at the time unless a person knew to opt out. FitBit has since modified its policy to keep hidden more sensitive data unless someone configures his or her account specifically to share it. As for Davis and his fight to lose weight, he said his biggest mistake was letting his FitBit gadget lose its charge last year. Without the continual feedback, and perhaps a mobile app to remind him, Davis’ motivation waned and his weight climbed to 292 pounds. But Davis insists he won’t stay that way for long. He has persuaded his family members and coworkers to wear self-measuring devices, sparking a friendly rivalry. “Keep an eye on me,” he said of the months ahead. “I think you’ll see a difference.”
A view of the U.S. Capitol building in Washington. Even after lawmakers complete their pending deal to avert a federal default and fully reopen the government, they are likely to return to their grinding brand of brinkmanship – perhaps repeatedly.
Fed: Economic growth slows in places on shutdown worries By MARTIN CRUTSINGER The Associated Press WASHINGTON – The Federal Reserve said economic growth slowed in a few key regions of the U.S. from September through early October, as businesses grew worried about a budget impasse that led to a partial government shutdown. Overall, the economy continued to expand at a “modest to moderate” pace, according to the Fed survey released Wednesday. Eight of the Fed’s 12 banking districts reported the same growth rate as they had reported in August through early September. But four districts – Philadelphia, Richmond, Chicago and Kansas City – said growth had slowed. Businesses around the country remained optimistic about the future and consumer spending continued to increase, helped by strong auto sales. But many businesses noted
greater uncertainty because of the federal shutdown, which began Oct. 1, and a looming deadline to raise federal borrowing limit. Boston, in particular, reported that the tourism industry was worried about the impact of a prolonged shutdown. And several districts reported that businesses were cautious about hiring. Senate leaders announced Wednesday they had an agreement to avert a threatened Treasury default and reopen the government after the 16day shutdown. The House was likely to approve the measure, too, leading many to anticipate passage in both chambers before the end of the day. Jennifer Lee, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets, said that the Fed’s survey showed that there had been only limited damage to the economy at least through the first week of the shutdown. “Hopefully ... the damage and the hurt have been generally contained,” she said.
JPMorgan pays $100M, admits London traders acted ‘recklessly’ By MARCY GORDON The Associated Press WASHINGTON – JPMorgan Chase & Co. has agreed to pay a $100 million penalty and admitted that its traders acted “recklessly” during a series of London trades that ultimately cost the bank $6 billion. The settlement announced Wednesday by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission comes less than a month after JPMorgan, the nation’s largest bank, agreed to pay $920 million and admit fault in a deal with the Securities and Exchange Commission and other U.S. and British regulators. The stunning trading losses that surfaced in April 2012 shook the financial world and damaged JPMorgan’s reputation.
The CFTC deal differs from the previous agreement because JPMorgan is formally acknowledging that its traders recklessly distorted prices to reduce the banks’ losses at the expense of other market participants. In the SEC agreement, JPMorgan admitted only that it failed to supervise those traders. The bank “recklessly disregarded the fundamental precept on which market participants rely: that prices are established based on legitimate forces of supply and demand,” the CFTC said in a news release. According to the agency, JPMorgan traders in London sold off $7 billion in derivatives tied to a price index of corporate bonds in one day – including $4.6 billion worth in a three-hour span.
Short-term deal won’t mask big barriers ahead By CHARLES BABINGTON The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Hold the champagne. Even after lawmakers complete their pending deal to avert a federal default and fully reopen the government, they are likely to return to their grinding brand of brinkmanship – perhaps repeatedly. Wednesday’s self-congratulations notwithstanding, congressional talks are barely touching the underlying causes of debt-and-spending stalemates that pushed the country close to economic crises in 2011, last December and again this month. At best, lawmakers and the White House will agree to fund the government and raise the debt limit for only a few months. They also will call for yet another bipartisan effort to address the federal debt’s major causes, including restricted revenue growth and entitlement benefits that rise automatically. And yet, top advocates say they’ve seen virtually no change in the political dynamics that stymied past efforts for a compromise to end the cycle of brinksmanship and threats to harm the economy. Republicans still adamantly oppose tax increases. Powerful interest groups and many Democrats still fiercely oppose cuts in Social Security and Medicare benefits. And congressional rules still tempt lawmakers to threaten economic havoc – by sending the nation into default – if the opposing party doesn’t yield
to their demands. “We’re probably going to have to go through this a few more times,” said Bob Bixby of the bipartisan Concord Coalition, which advocates budget reforms. Even if a compromise plan this month wins House, Senate and White House approval, Bixby said, it will leave fundamental problems that “they haven’t done anything to address.” Henry J. Aaron, a Brookings Institution scholar who supports unprecedented legal action to avert future debt showdowns, agreed that three or four months of breathing room is a small victory. “If all we achieve is a repetition of this charade,” Aaron said, “we will not have achieved much.” The political landscape is littered with once-hopeful bipartisan efforts to reach a “grand bargain” – or even a modest bargain – to slow the growth of the nation’s $16.7 trillion debt and to make spending and revenue trends more sustainable. There was the SimpsonBowles plan, first issued in 2010, and revised early this year. The revised version called for about $1.3 trillion in new revenues over 10 years, from various sources (about half the original plan’s target). It would slow the growth rate of Social Security benefits and raise the eligibility age. It would limit popular tax deductions such as those for charitable gifts and mortgage interest. The Simpson-Bowles plan remains widely praised nationwide, and largely ignored in Congress.

Then there were the 2011 secret talks between President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner, ROhio. Boehner suggested $800 billion in new revenues over 10 years – less than Obama wanted – in exchange for widespread spending cuts, including curbs on Medicare and Social Security. It was never clear whether Obama could have pushed the plan through the Democraticcontrolled Senate. It didn’t matter, because Boehner’s GOP colleagues vehemently objected when details leaked, and the talks collapsed. Efforts last year to revive negotiations also failed. A bipartisan congressional “supercommittee” fared no better. Both parties had agreed to supposedly unbearable “sequester” spending cuts to goad each other into big compromises to find a better way. But negotiations faltered and the clumsy-bydesign sequester cuts – auto-
matic and across the board – became law this year. All these efforts failed for the same basic reasons. Liberals and conservatives, Democrats and Republicans, would have had to swallow painful concessions that they don’t believe are warranted. The lure of the “common good” couldn’t match the power of sharply partisan regions and districts whose voters vow to punish lawmakers who compromise. Republicans oppose higher taxes, even though today’s taxation levels are relatively low, historically. Democrats oppose curbs in the growth of Medicare and Social Security, even though analysts for years have said the automatic growth of these “entitlement” programs is unsustainable long-term. Americans are accustomed to relatively high levels of government service at relatively low levels of taxation. Millions are unwilling to undo that arrangement in pursuit of deficit reduction.

PRARIE RIDGE FOOTBALL
Wolves OT Shane Evans commits to NIU Senior to graduate early to get a jump on college career By JOE STEVENSON email@example.com Prairie Ridge senior Shane Evans could have called his future college football coach to commit, but chose instead to do so in person. Evans, a four-year starter at of-
fensive tackle, rode with his parents, Matt and Nancy, to DeKalb on Wednesday after the Wolves’ practice and told Northern Illinois University coach Rod Carey and offensive line coach Joe Tripodi he would join the Huskies. Evans (6-foot-4, 300 pounds) will finish his graduation requirements early and enroll at NIU in January, which will allow him to participate in spring practices and get a jump on his freshman season. “I liked the family atmosphere there,” Evans said. “I felt like they treat their players right.” Playing 50 minutes from home
was one consideration for Evans. Also, the Huskies (6-0) are ranked No. 23 in The Associated Press poll and played in a BCS Bowl last season, losing to Florida State in the Orange Bowl. And Evans had former high school teammate Sean FolShane Evans liard, a freshman linebacker playing on special teams, on whom to lean for advice. “I’ve talked to Sean a lot about everything from school work to dealing with other things,” Evans
said. “That was one of the big factors in me making that decision, knowing a lot about everything and the school.” NIU has another local player, Marian Central offensive lineman Scott Taylor, who is a redshirt freshman. Evans became a starter as a freshman and was part of the offensive line that paved the way for the Wolves’ 2011 Class 6A state championship. He was a Northwest Herald All-Area selection last season and is a two-way starter for the 3-4 Wolves this season. “There couldn’t have been a bet-

BOYS SOCCER: WOODSTOCK NORTH
CRYSTAL LAKE CENTRAL 2, MARIAN CENTRAL 2
Not intimidated Teams could meet again in regional semis
In a league all her own Farley only female boys coach in area
By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO firstname.lastname@example.org WOODSTOCK – The Crystal Lake Central boys soccer team didn’t show a hint of intimidation Wednesday against Marian Central. Three days before the oneand-done portion of its season in the Class 2A playoffs begin, the Tigers came out aggressively and played like they had nothing to lose in their nonconference match against the Hurricanes, which ended in a 2-2 tie. “In the first half, we played well and got a few shots on goal,” Tigers coach Jose Arias said. “In the second half, [Marian] possessed the ball more. We couldn’t find the net in the second half.” Taking the lead less than three minutes into the match on a goal by senior midfielder Danilo Costa gave Central confidence it could hold its own against the Hurricanes. Marian, however, didn’t back down with a one-goal deficit. Junior forward Connor Hull tied the score with 16:57 remaining in the first half on a great individual play. Hull dribbled the ball 50 yards down the right sideline, cut back near the box and fired a shot with his left foot into the net. But the Tigers responded five minutes before the half. Sophomore midfielder Michael Chen scored on a free kick right outside the box, curling the ball around the wall of Hurricanes for a 2-1 lead. Marian sophomore midfielder Bryan Hart tied the Sarah Nader – email@example.com score less than two minutes Crystal Lake Central’s Isaac Herrera (front) collides with Marian Central’s Jordan Peterson as Peterson into the second half.

ter situation for him,” Wolves coach Chris Schremp said. “He’s going to a Top 25 program, he’s close to home, he has a couple younger brothers he’s close to, and he really liked the coaches. [The coaches] really impressed me as genuine guys. You felt you could trust what they said. And he has an ‘in’ with Sean Folliard there.” When NIU offered a scholarship to Evans in January, it was his first of many. By the summer, he pared his list to four schools – NIU, Cincinnati, Toledo and Western Michigan.

hen Woodstock North boys soccer coach Lauren Farley took over the team this season, she implemented a simple rule: No swearing. The punishment? Ten pushups for every letter in the swear word. It’s a rule Farley also has in place with Woodstock North’s girls varsity soccer team, which she has coached the past three seasons. “Swearing has no place on the soccer field, especially swearing at other teams or officials, which is something that has happened in the past,” Farley said. “Last year, there were some problems with behavior … not really playing as a team.” Farley doesn’t accept her
team getting yellow and red cards, and that enforcement has helped the Thunder play better, junior forward Josh Jandron said. If a North player is playing too aggressively – to the point of playing dirty instead of being aggressive – Farley won’t hesitate to take that player out of the match to chill out and reflect. Farley said she has little tolerance for dirty soccer and doesn’t want her team to emulate that style of play. “It was an adjustment,” Jandron said. “In the beginning of the year, we were kind of testing her limits and now we’re settled in and we’re determined.” As the only woman coaching an area boys varsity soccer team, Farley is well aware she is an anomaly. She believes it’s important to have diverse background and insight within a program, part of the reason the Thunder’s JV coach is a male.

BEARS INSIDER Hub Arkush to the good teams they played. The 64-95 record of the teams they beat and the fact that the Colts and Vikings were the only teams with winning records that they beat proved half that argument, and the fact the Packers, Texans, 49ers, Seahawks and Vikings
were playoff teams they lost to (Green Bay twice) cemented it. Looking ahead to this year, many feared the presence of the Bengals, Steelers, Saints, Giants, Redskins, Ravens and their two divisional games with Green Bay and Minnesota would make this schedule far more difficult. The efforts of Pittsburgh, New York, Washington and Minnesota to date already have proved that theory wrong.
What matters now is the Bears are tied for first place in the NFC North with the Lions, and the Packers are just a half game behind. It seems quite possible the outcome of their three remaining games with those two clubs will determine the winner of the division. So how do the Bears stack up right now against Detroit and Green Bay?

Road to playoffs will be rougher Quenneville: Intensity high from early foes
PRESEASON: BULLS 96, PISTONS 81
Rose answers early questions By SETH GRUEN Chicago Sun-Times Players expected to start for the Bulls have their names listed in bold on the roster distributed to the media along with the pregame notes. Before the Bulls played the Detroit Pistons in a preseason game Wednesday at the United Center, Derrick Rose’s name, conspicuously, was in regular type. In the minutes leading up to coach Tom Thibodeau’s pregame news conference, it was being rationalized. Maybe the coach wanted Rose to get playing time with the second unit. The pervasive feeling was one of skepticism after Rose was suspiciously absent from the preseason game against the Washington Wizards in Rio de Janeiro. But any doubt was erased, at least for now, when Thibo-
Next Preseason: vs. Indiana, 7 p.m. Friday, CSN, AM1000
deau announced Rose would start against the Pistons. The former MVP scored 22 points in the Bulls’ 96-81 victory. But Rose’s first game on the United Center floor since he tore the ACL in his left knee on April 28, 2012, did little to answer any questions about whether he will be able to stay successful over the long haul. “I know this is a process,” Rose said before the game. “We can’t just go [to] the regular season. We have to go through all this. So I’m just trying to be patient and take my time.” Rose played 22 minutes,
just a minute shy of his high during the preseason. In the exhibition opener in Indianapolis he played 20 minutes and saw 23 against the Memphis Grizzlies in St. Louis. His most encouraging moment came as time was winding down in the first half. Rose used a crossover move that completely shook Peyton Siva. The rookie guard was able to recover and fouled Rose, who made a shot falling to his left. It was that type of Rose-esque moment that was so common before the knee injury. But it had been questioned whether he ever would be able to make plays like that again. Those questions, at least, have been answered this preseason. But Rose still needs to prove – even to himself – that he can consistently be that player for the Bulls throughout the course of an 82-game
regular season and ?beyond. That will come as his minutes increase, but Thibodeau said before the game he has a plan for increasing every player’s minutes. “I surprised myself some going to the lane, getting guys on their heels and really playing through contact,” Rose said. “Even though I’m getting hit, still finding ways to get through it. “I’ve been a little bit rusty, but that’s just going to come with not playing. I haven’t played in over a year and a half and I don’t play pickup at all during the summer. I just work out. So, hopefully, this game you see that I’m in a little more rhythm than the last two games.” • Seth Gruen is a sports reporter for the Chicago SunTimes. He can be reached at email@example.com.
Rose would love to play for Team USA By SETH GRUEN Chicago Sun-Times After going without playing basketball for nearly a year and a half, the focus of Derrick Rose this preseason is to get his surgically-repaired left knee ready to play, hopefully, an 82-game regular season. But asked if he would like to again play for USA Basketball next summer, that didn’t seem too far from Rose’s mind. Duke coach Mike
Krzyzewski coaches the team; Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau is one of his assistants. “I would love to play on the team; it would be an honor,” Rose said. “But at the same time it would take me trying out for the team and Coach K and his coaching staff along with Thibs would pick the players and allow me to play for them. So if I have the opportunity to play for them, I will.” The other left knee: Starting
shooting guard Jimmy Butler missed the Bulls’ preseason game against the Pistons at the United Center with a left knee bruise. Butler said he had an MRI on the knee, which revealed nothing serious. Butler banged knees with Washington point guard John Wall when the Bulls played the Wizards on Saturday in Rio de Janeiro. He was able to finish the game and play a team-high 31 minutes.

Holy Cross: Coach accused of abuse goes on leave BOSTON – Longtime Holy Cross women’s basketball coach Bill Gibbons stepped aside Wednesday while the college reviews claims by a former player that he was physically and emotionally abusive. Gibbons made the announcement to the team Wednesday afternoon, the school said in a statement. His assistant coaches will now assume all coaching duties while Gibbons is on voluntary, paid administrative leave. The announcement comes a day after former player Ashley Cooper, 20, sued Gibbons and the school. Cooper said that Gibbons grabbed her, shook her and hit her at different times and that the school covered up the behavior. – Wire reports

Marian falls short against St. Francis
Gonzalez paces Huntley
By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO email@example.com WOODSTOCK – Marian Central’s volleyball team has been searching for a win against St. Francis, consistently one of the state’s best teams, since defeating the Spartans in 2010. The Hurricanes were primed for the upset Wednesday in the teams’ second meeting of the season. After falling short in Game 1, having failed to hold onto an early lead, Marian rallied in Game 2. Using a 7-1 run, Marian took a 21-18 lead. But the Spartans quickly erased it, taking advantage of the Hurricanes’ unforced errors en route to a 28-26 Game 2 win to secure the Suburban Christian Conference Blue Division victory, 2-0. Marian lost to St. Francis, 25-13, 25-15, on the road in September, “We know we’ve gotten

SCC Blue) grabbed momentum in Game 1 by claiming a 12-7 lead, paced by senior outside hitter Frankie Taylor, who finished with eight kills. The Spartans (30-3), though, took advantage of their blocking – they recorded five points
off blocks – to recover and put away the Hurricanes with a 25-19 win. Marian easily could have been discouraged, but the Hurricanes managed to rebound despite quickly falling behind 10-3 in Game 2. Senior middle blocker Hannah Davis (matchhigh nine kills) was nearly unstoppable on slide sets. Her difficult shots, combined with sophomore middle blocker Rachel Giustino’s presence at the net, fueled Marian to the 21-18 lead. At one point, the Hurricanes posted four consecutive blocks during their 7-1 run. “Line shots have worked a lot for us, and that’s what we were trying to pick on,” Davis said. “My favorite set is the slide.” Too many mistakes would prove to be Marian’s downfall in Game 2, particularly at the service line where the Hurricanes committed six service errors.
“I love that we were trying to serve aggressively, but there’s also aggressive and smart,” Watling said. “ ... That is really frustrating. But the good news is aside from that, we were right there with them.” A kill by Spartans sophomore Molly Haggerty ended Taylor’s run of six straight serves, and two ensuing blocks tied the game at 21. After exchanging points and being tied at 25 after a Marian service error, St. Francis gave Marian its second chance to put away the game with a hitting error. But another miscue from the Hurricanes, this time a hitting error, again tied the game. St. Francis didn’t waste the opportunity and finished off Marian with two straight kills. “I think we passed well, played better defense,” said St. Francis coach Peg Kopec of her team’s Game 2 rally. “I think we acted a little lackluster. We just didn’t have a lot of fire.”
CRYSTAL LAKE SOUTH VOLLEYBALL
Junior comfortable running the show By MAUREEN LYNCH CARPENTERSVILLE – Cassy Sivesind entered games sporadically last year, a sophomore on an up-andcoming Crystal Lake South volleyball roster. Sivesind carried a quiet confidence, studying the Gators’ hitters and memorizing the offense. When she had her chances, Sivesind made them count and opponents took note. But it’s not just working hard that has helped Sivesind become one of the area’s most accurate setters. Sivesind has instincts that cannot be coached, South coach Jorie Fontana noted after South defeated Dundee-Crown on Oct. 3. They are instincts that have helped South win the Fox Valley Conference Valley Division title again this season, and instincts that can help the Gators remain undefeated in division play with a win against Huntley at 6:30 p.m. Thursday. “She’s always been told she has those things, as far as a setter goes, that a lot of girls have to train a lot to get,” Fontana said. “Her touch on the ball is very natural. She obviously has the physique. She’s tall and can put up a block. I think she’s been told she has those things and now she’s just maturing into it.” Sivesind, who now has 561 assists, clearly is comfortable on the court running the show, and her hitters know she will give them workable – and often precise – passes. In the Gators’ first match against Huntley on Sept. 24, Sivesind kept the Raiders off guard with quick sets to the middle and on balls to the outsides,
and by setting to powerful outside Carly Nolan when Nolan was in the back row. It’s a strategy Sivesind’s Sky High club coach and Cary-Grove coach Patty Langanis worked with Sivesind during the offseason to develop. Like Fontana, Langanis saw Sivesind’s natural talent. Putting all the pieces together would be the challenge, and Sivesind rose to it. “Getting her in the right mindset was important,” Langanis said. “She started to really understand how important she is to the offense and that the pressure is on her in order for her hitters to be successful. She had to speed up her tempo. “… We put a lot of pressure on her in the offseason and it was tough to respond, but by the end it was clear that she did. To be a good setter, a great setter, you have to be fast and perfect. And I saw a lot of maturity in her.” With an arsenal of hitters to employ, Sivesind could settle for realizing good hitters often make their setters’ passes look better than they actually are. Instead, Sivesind is relentlessly focused and determined. “I think I improved my leadership and placing the ball where my hitters can be successful,” Sivesind said. “I can set anywhere and I know I have someone who can put it down. I worked a lot (in the offseason on placing the ball and connecting with my hitters, talking more. “I definitely was a scared little sophomore playing on a big varsity floor. But as I’ve matured, it’s just come to me.”

I think other teams are thinking they can win the regional,” Colvin said. “But we think we can.” Although the Hurricanes (10-5-1 overall) enter the playoffs on a three-match winless streak, they expect to be refocused regardless of who they play Tuesday. “Our attitudes weren’t always there,” Hull said. “We were looking for a win, but we weren’t all mentally ready for that game. That’s one thing we need to prepare ourselves for.” Central (9-11-1) understands it can’t overlook Prairie Ridge and assume the Tigers will be again playing the Hurricanes in less than a week. The Wolves beat Central, 2-1, on the road in September. “It lets us know what our potential is,” Chen said. “I think we definitely have a chance [against Prairie Ridge], and then when we see these guys again, we know what they’re made of.”

COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYOFF SELECTION COMMITTEE
Rice joins commitee as a ‘student of game’ She called herself a “student of the game.” “What I can hopefully bring to this committee is critical judgment and the willingness to work real hard ... to put the best four teams on the field,” she said. Rice, who grew up in Alabama, said college football has been trying to come up with a way to crown a champion for years and mentioned how the 1966 championship was muddled when Notre Dame and Michigan State played to a tie. Notre Dame was voted Condoleezza champion by the Rice coaches’ and AP polls, but Alabama went 11-0. “It enhances head-to-head competition,” Rice said about the new system. She said Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott approached her about being part of the committee. “Condi definitely earned her spot on this committee,” said Bill Hancock, the executive director of the BCS. “Obviously, part of this is going to be the ability to make judgments under scrutiny, and Condi has that.” Rice is the only woman on the committee. Some, such as former Auburn coach Pat Dye and former Georgia star and ESPN analyst David Pollack, have said they would prefer only those who have played football to be on the committee. “I’ve been in enough positions to respect people who have different views,” Rice said. “I will work very hard reviewing film to make good judgments.”
By RALPH D. RUSO The Associated Press The most scrutinized committee in sports has been set. The members say they’ll need thick skin, plenty of time and the ability to leave their loyalties behind to pick the four teams that will play for college football’s national title next year. They say they are ready for it. “I think I’ve experienced plenty of heat in my life,” former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said. Rice, former Nebraska coach Tom Osborne and College Football Hall of Fame quarterback Archie Manning are among the 13 people who will be part of the College Football Playoff selection committee in 2014. The committee was officially unveiled Wednesday. The College Football Playoff will replace the Bowl Championship Series. The selection committee will work similarly to the one that picks the teams for the NCAA basketball tournament, although instead of 68 teams it will choose and seed four to play in the semifinals. The winners of those games, played on a rotating basis at six bowl sites, will meet a week later for the national championship. “There will undoubtedly be people who disagree with the outcome,” Rice said. Rice was a surprising pick to be part of the postseason system that will replace the BCS next year because she never has worked directly in college athletics, although when she was provost at Stanford the athletic department was under her supervision and she hired Tyrone Willingham as football coach.

Baker was tagged with the nickname “Home Run” for his exploits. 1960 — The National League formally awarded franchises to the New York Metropolitan Baseball Club, Inc., headed by Joan Payson and a Houston group headed by Judge Roy Hofheinz, Craig Cullinan and R.E.

ALCS GAME 4: TIGERS 7, RED SOX 3
Peavy, Red Sox falter Ex-White Sox P allows 7 runs in 3-plus innings By LARRY LAGE The Associated Press DETROIT – An untimely bobble by Dustin Pedroia and a pair of four-pitch walks from Jake Peavy cost the Boston Red Sox a chance to take control of the AL Championship Series. Detroit scored five runs off Peavy in the pivotal second after Pedroia fumbled away his opportunity at an inning-ending double play, and the Tigers beat Boston, 7-3, on Wednesday night to tie the best-of-seven playoff at two games apiece. Peavy picked a bad time to have his worst performance of the year. Acquired in July as part of a three-team trade that included the Tigers, the right-hander allowed a sea-
Game 5 Boston at Detoit, 7:07 p.m. Thursday, FOX son-high seven runs in threeplus innings. He didn’t get much help from Pedroia during Detroit’s big rally. Boston’s normally sure-handed second baseman booted a sharply hit grounder that could have been converted into a critical double play. Instead of holding the Tigers to one run in the inning, the Red Sox had to settle for a force at second and Detroit took advantage by scoring four more runs. “He’s so consistent. He’s such a good defender,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said. “He squares it up and typically that’s a routine double play we’ve seen many, many times over. Like I said, it handcuffed him a little bit, just enough to not be able to turn a double play.”
Peavy gave up five hits in his shortest start since June 4, when he still was with the White Sox. The Tigers helped Boston acquire Peavy in a three-team deal less than three months ago that netted Detroit rookie shortstop Jose Iglesias. Victor Martinez hit a leadoff single in the second off Peavy, making his first appearance in a league championship series game. Peavy walked Jhonny Peralta on four pitches and gave Alex Avila a free pass in an eightpitch at-bat to load the bases. After getting Omar Infante to pop up, Peavy walked in the game’s first run when he failed to throw one strike to a slumping hitter. Austin Jackson, who entered batting .091 in the postseason, didn’t have to swing during a four-pitch walk that made it 1-0. It was just the second time in Peavy’s 13-year career that he gave up a pair four-pitch passes in one inning, excluding intentional walks, according to STATS.
ALCS GAME 5: DODGERS 6, CARDINALS 4
By BETH HARRIS The Associated Press
Los Angeles Dodgers oufielder Carl Crawford rounds the bases after hitting a home run in the fifth inning of Game 5 of the NLCS against the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday in Los Angeles. The Dodgers won, 6-4, trimming the Cardinals’ lead to 3-2 in the series.
Game 6 Los Angeles at St. Louis, 7:37 p.m. Friday, TBS Will Ferrell announced their lineup and lent a comic spin to each player’s name, capping it by introducing Greinke as “today’s winning pitcher.” Ferrell knew what he was talking about. Greinke got into a bases-loaded jam with none out in the first but escaped with no damage. From there, he pitched seven strong innings and even delivered an RBI single. “That was big. I was real nervous out there with that situation,” Greinke said. A.J. Ellis also homered at Dodger Stadium, where it is tougher to clear the fences in the heavy night air. Helped by playing in 82-degree heat on a sunny afternoon, the Dodgers rediscovered their power stroke just
Bears 3rd in scoring in NFL
The Bears are third in the NFL in scoring, but that number can be a bit misleading as it relates to the offense. The Bears’ average of 28.7 points a game is reduced to 24.0 when you take away the four touchdowns the defense has scored. That would rank them 13th in the NFL in scoring and the 24.0 average a game is actually one-tenth of a point less than the NFC average of 24.1 points a game, per team. It doesn’t take anything away from the team’s performance, but it does suggest the offense will need to produce more if the Bears are to prevail in shootouts as the defense struggles, possibly as soon as this Sunday in Washington.
There is one area folks have expected change that might not be coming. The Bears are running the ball about 35 percent of the time and passing 65 percent. Coach Marc Trestman has said he believes the Bears must stick with the running game and was happy with the 25 runs they called against New York, but he doesn’t believe balance or the ratio is necessarily important for offensive success.
“Right from that time, you knew they were going to have some great chemistry together,” he said. Shanahan’s influence on the beginning of Marshall’s NFL career is not lost on the Bears’ star receiver. “I’m so thankful they gave me an opportunity in Denver, and he gave me chance after chance,” Marshall said. “… He’s definitely someone I think that would be a friend, a mentor, a coach for the rest of my life. He’s that type of guy, and I’m thankful to have the opportunity to play for him.”
are. … Jim Haslett does a great job of trying to confuse you on third down with people coming from everywhere, with different fronts.” The Redskins rank in the middle of the league, allowing a 37 percent conversion rate on third downs. Trestman also called their outside linebackers, Ryan Kerrigan and Brian Orakpo, “outstanding.”

RG3: Think less, use instincts By JOSEPH WHITE
Greinke, Dodgers extend series LOS ANGELES – It took the Dodgers five games to hit a home run in the NL Championship Series. Once Adrian Gonzalez powered up for the first one, their dormant offense broke loose. Gonzalez homered twice and Zack Greinke came through with the clutch performance Los Angeles needed in a 6-4 victory over the Cardinals on Wednesday that trimmed St. Louis’ lead to 3-2 in the best-of-seven series. “Guys weren’t ready to lose today,” said Carl Crawford, who also went deep to help the Dodgers save their season. Los Angeles held on in the ninth, when St. Louis scored twice off closer Kenley Jansen before he struck out pinch-hitter Adron Chambers with two on to end it. The series shifts back to St. Louis for Game 6 on Friday night, with ace Clayton Kershaw scheduled to start for Los Angeles against rookie Michael Wacha. When those two squared off in Game 2, the Cardinals won 1-0 on an unearned run. “We’ve kind of become America’s team because everyone wants to see a seventh game,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. “Probably even the fans in St. Louis would like to see a seventh game, so I figure that everybody’s for us to win on Friday night.” The Cardinals also led last year’s NLCS 3-1 before losing three straight games to the eventual World Series champion San Francisco Giants. “We’re looking to do the same thing,” Gonzalez said. Desperate to avoid elimination, the Dodgers brought in some Hollywood star power for pregame introductions.
LAKE FOREST – Mike Shanahan was the first to see what the Jay Cutler-Brandon Marshall duo could do, and he’ll have to coach against the combination for the first time Sunday. The Shanahan-coached Denver Broncos drafted Cutler in the first round and Marshall in the Mike Shanahan fourth round in 2006. In ’08, both players were Pro Bowlers under Shanahan’s watch. Cutler threw 25 touchdowns and was sacked only 11 times. Marshall had 104 catches for 1,265 yards and six scores. “I can tell you that Champ Bailey came to me the first time we practiced with Brandon Marshall. He said, ‘What happened? How did we ever get this guy in the fourth round?’ ” Shanahan said on a conference call Wednesday. “So when you get a Pro Bowl player that realizes the talent of a guy like Brandon Marshall right away, the upside a guy like Brandon brings to a team. “One thing about Brandon, he’s a fun guy to be around. He’s got an infectious personality. He’s a difference-maker.” The fact that the connection Marshall had with Cutler flourished in Denver was a big reason the Bears took the chance and traded for him before the 2012 season. Shanahan recalled when Marshall had 18 catches against the Chargers in the ’08 season opener with Cutler as a turning point.
in time to extend the series. They hit .274 in three games at home after batting .184 during the first two games in St. Louis. “It was just one of those days that we were a little better, got some runs, good feeling,” Mattingly said. The Dodgers regrouped after Greinke squandered an early 2-0 lead just as he did in Game 1, which Los Angeles lost 3-2 in 13 innings on the road. After neither team homered in the first three games for the first time in NLCS history, the big bats came out. The Cardinals used a two-run homer by Matt Holliday and a solo shot from pinch-hitter Shane Robinson to win 4-2 on Tuesday night. This time, Gonzalez went 3 for 4 with two solo homers and three runs scored. His two-out shot in the eighth made it 6-2. “We have a team that can bounce back and do some pretty incredible things out there,” he said.
The Associated Press ASHBURN, Va. – Robert Griffin III has his legs back. Now it’s a matter of wondering what’s happening with his arm. The Washington Redskins quarterback who nearly set an NFL rookie record for accuracy last year has thrown a wobbler or two and missed more than his share of open receivers during the team’s 1-4 start. Part of it is dicey footwork, part of it is miscommunication with his receivers, and part of it is a lack of protection from his offensive line. “There’s some missed throws in there,” Griffin said Wednesday. “There’s some dropped passes, and all that accumulates into what the stats say, but it’s a long year. We’ve got a chance to make sure those numbers get back up, and we’ll make sure it does.” Griffin has completed 59.8 percent of his throws, down from 65.6 last year, and he already has matched his 2012 total of five interceptions. And that includes with the stat-padding that took place in the first two games of this season, when he was piling up meaningless completions and yards with his team behind by multiple touchdowns late in games. Griffin’s favorite target is Pierre Garcon, who was targeted 15 times but caught only six passes in Sunday’s 31-16 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The pair weren’t on the same page at least twice, including one play in which Garcon missed a signal from Griffin and went short instead of deep. “Miscommunications happen when you’re trying to adjust at the line and do things,” Garcon said as the team began practicing for this week’s game against the Bears. “But it’s nothing to worry about. It’ll come. We’ll get it down pat.” But fellow wideout Santana
Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III loses the ball after being sacked by Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Jason Hatcher in the second half of Sunday night’s game in Arlington, Texas. The Redskins recovered the fumble. Moss, who has only one touchdown catch this year after grabbing eight a year ago, said it already should be down pat. “Second year, man, how much more have we got to learn each other? ... We ain’t going to get no more learning than what you know now,” Moss said. “I feel like every week you get better, but who needs to learn who more? We’ve been here two years together, and if we can do it the first year without knowing each other, we can do it the second year.” Griffin was so good last year that he covered up many of the Redskins’ flaws. He took a major step toward looking like the 2012 version Sunday when he ran for 77 yards, more than his rushing total in the first four games combined. He said he initially was thinking too much about sliding and keeping himself safe after returning from major knee surgery – instead of playing with the instincts that won him a Heisman Trophy and the award for NFL’s offensive rookie of the year. “I’ve got to be the guy that I know that I am. ... Everybody wants me to slide and get out of bounds and do that whole thing, and for me I can’t really listen to that,” Griffin said.
“It’s not that you ignore it. I understand that people are concerned, but there is a day that you have to go out there and play with your instincts. “I can still go out there and play with instincts and slide and get out of bounds,” he added, “but this team needs me to do more to help them win and help us win, so that’s what I’ve got to do.” Griffin said he will remain upbeat – “You can’t let your record steal your joy,” he said – but he also referenced a list of setbacks, including the calls for the Redskins to change their name because of its potentially racist overtones, as hurdles the team is having to overcome. “With all the scrutiny going on with our team,” he said, “as far as the name, my knee injury, the way we started this season, all that stuff can pile up. The good thing about the locker room is that we do have a strong locker room. Coach says it all the time – we have too much character on this team to fold.” Moss, meanwhile, said Griffin is getting too much blame for the team’s slow start. “I don’t think he’s bad right now,” Moss said. “I just think collectively we haven’t done enough as a team to be good.”

t balance of offense, defense head win, and perhaps more promise defensively because of the play of their two defensive tackles, Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley, and an improving back seven. Offensively, the Lions and Bears are similar, dependent on an elite receiver and multipurpose running backs, and both Matt Stafford and Jay Cutler have boom or bust written all over them. After Cincinnati on Sunday, the Lions, like the Packers, have no winning teams outside of the division left to play. Although, like the Bears, they have Baltimore lurking later in the season. If the Packers are in fact the
team to beat, could the Lions and Bears both be wild cards this year? That seems unlikely, with the Seahawks and 49ers in the NFC West. It does appear the NFC North is the best division in the conference, and the most important stretch of the season will be the two weeks after the bye when the Bears travel to Green Bay on Nov. 4 for a Monday night meeting with the Packers and then the next Sunday when the Lions come to Soldier Field.

Deciphering the NFL injury report can be tricky Selecting the right lineup for your fantasy team can be a frustrating endeavor. How many times have you cringed because the player you decided to bench had a career day? (If you sat Vernon Davis in Week 6, I feel your pain.) Trying to determine the best matchup is tough enough (Hmmm … Tony Romo at Philadelphia or Philip Rivers at Jacksonville?). But perhaps the biggest hurdle to setting the optimum lineup is deciphering the NFL injury report. The injury reports have been in existence since 1947, when commissioner Bert Bell implemented them as a means to eliminate insider information. In 2004, the reports were augmented to include each player’s participation level in practice, with those reports being filed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The NFL has a rating system for injured players that specifies their probability of playing in a game: • Out – the player will not play; • Doubtful – 75 percent chance the player will not play; • Questionable – 50 percent chance the player will play; • Probable – 75 percent chance the player will play. Although my mother-inlaw does not listen to me (and why should she, her team is 5-1), I gave her a simple trick to help her understand the injury report: “D” (doubtful) means do not play, and “P” (probable) means play. It is extremely rare for a probable player to be held out. It is just as improbable that a doubtful player gets onto the field. “Questionable” on the other hand is a crapshoot. The dreaded “Q” is the scourge of fantasy owners. I wish there were a simple rule for how to handle the “Q,” but there is not. Remember, a player listed as questionable supposedly has a 50 percent chance of playing. If true, then a historical analysis of questionable players should show that half actually played and half did not. Has such an analysis been done? According to a Google search – part of my extensive research for this column – it has not. Although I did not conduct a historical analysis (ain’t nobody got time for that), I did take a look at fantasy players listed as questionable on the Week Six injury report. Questionable players who failed to take the field last week included Michael Vick, Rob Gronkowski, Stevie Johnson, Mike Williams and Zach Miller. The list of questionable players who did play was more extensive. It included Larry Fitzgerald, Marshawn Lynch, Calvin Johnson, Darren McFadden, Greg Jennings, Brandon Myers, Martellus Bennett, Jacoby Jones, CJ Spiller, Stevan Ridley, Andre Johnson and

Blair Walsh. Based on a very small sample, it would seem that “questionable” is closer to “probable” than it is to “doubtful.” Unfortunately, different NFL coaches approach the injury report with different perspectives. Some coaches try to provide an accurate and honest picture of their injury situations, and others … well, others are Bill Belichik and Pete Carroll. Belichick and Carroll treat the injury report the way the fast-food clerk you insulted treats your food. I believe Tom Brady appeared on 1,400 straight injury reports without ever missing a game. Marshawn Lynch has appeared as questionable on the last few reports, but there’s never been any real consideration of holding him out. Conversely, Vick was listed as questionable in Week Six, but there was never any chance that he would play. So, you play a “P” and you sit a “D” but what should you do with a “Q?” Review the practice reports. If a player is practicing, he’ll likely play. Also consider the history of the player and the coach. If a player often appears on injury reports, but usually winds up playing, that’s a strong indication he’ll play. Your last line of defense

is to consult your favorite website or television show just prior to game time. Most sites and pre-game shows now include a list of active and non-active players. Unfortunately, this is not as effective for games that are not played at noon on Sunday. It gets trickier when you’re considering a questionable player in a later game. Most importantly, always have a backup option. Ultimately, when in doubt, go with the healthy option.
Random observations Seemingly lost in the Patriots incredible comeback versus the Saints was Sean Payton’s atrocious clock management. It would seem that most mainstream media pundits dare not criticize the great and powerful Payton. The Saints pride themselves on being aggressive, but when aggressive turns into stupid (as it did Sunday), Payton should be called on it. He certainly is heaped with praise when the Saints win. • I would have more sympathy for Gronkowski’s injury situation if he weren’t such a reckless clown in the offseason. Six weeks in, the coaching hot seat is approaching the boiling point for Gary Kubiak of Houston and Greg Schiano of Tampa Bay. Kubiak has always conducted himself with class. I would hope that his accomplishments would account for something and that he would at least be allowed to finish out the season. On the other hand, the havoc that Schiano has wreaked in Tampa in such a short period of time is amazing. He needs to go back to college … clown college.

Only time can truly heal pain of losing beloved pets DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips forting, whether you choose to bury them later or tuck them away in your home. Most important is having a plan for when that moment comes so you automatically know what needs to be done. It really helped to have all the details of his final moments thought out so I felt in control. I wouldn’t have missed the love of my dog even knowing the pain that has to come in the end. It’s something that should be on everyone’s buck-
et list. – Cathy In California Dear Cathy: My thanks to you and all the readers who sent heartfelt letters supporting “Afraid.” It’s easy to see why dogs are called man’s best friend because of all the love, affection, entertainment and companionship they give us, and why we only want the best for them in this life and after. Read on: Dear Abby: Your pet is your child. Anyone who doesn’t understand that isn’t worth worrying about when the loss occurs. Will it hurt? Of course. But the pain does ease in time. When my first dog died, I spoke with a grief counselor at the local veterinary
college. It didn’t make my pain disappear, but it helped me to understand it more. Your pet does not live in the future, but in the moment. Enjoy every moment you have together and accept the unconditional love your pet has given you. You WILL get through it. – Deb In Belmont,
Mich. Dear Abby: Having shared the love of many pets over the years, I have found dealing with the loss of our furry friends never gets easier, no matter how many times you go through it. I just reflect on all the cherished times I shared with them, and I know I did my best to make their lives grand. I know I’m better
off for having shared their company. Having rescued all of my past and current pets from shelters, I saved them from an uncertain life. I gave them a loving home with affection, stability and a warm bed. While they all leave us at some point, their memory lives on in our hearts. I think Irving Townsend said it best: “We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own, live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached. Unable to accept its awful gaps, we would still live no other way. We cherish memory as the only certain immortality, never fully
Many methods help smokers quit Dear Dr. K: I’ve tried to quit smoking on my own, but it never lasts. Could medications help? How do they work? Dear Reader: Medicines can help, and they have improved “quit rates.” Although smoking is a particularly hard habit to break, you can do it. The proof: There are more exsmokers in the United States today than there are smokers. Nicotine, one of the many dangerous chemicals found in cigarettes, is what addicts you. It doesn’t damage your tissues; it just makes you want to smoke. Each hit of nicotine produces pleasure. But as nicotine leaves the body, you begin to experience uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. One type of quit-smoking medication is called nicotine replacement therapy (NRT). It delivers a low dose of nicotine into your bloodstream to ease or erase withdrawal symptoms. You start the nicotine replacement on the day you stop smoking. Instead of getting the nicotine your body continues to need from cigarettes, you get it from the replacement treatment. As your withdrawal symptoms
ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff decrease, you lower your dose, then gradually wean yourself off all nicotine, including NRT. There are several forms of NRT. Some are available over-the-counter, others by prescription: • Nicotine patches stick on your skin like a bandage. They supply a low dose of nicotine that gets absorbed through the skin and into your bloodstream throughout the day. • When you chew nicotine gum, it releases a low dose of nicotine that is absorbed through your cheek and into your bloodstream. • When nasal spray is sprayed as a mist into the nose, nicotine reaches the bloodstream within five to 10 seconds. This is the fastest way to relieve withdrawal symptoms. • Puffing on a cigaretteshaped inhaler (sometimes called an e-cigarette) delivers a low dose of nicotine through the mouth, throat and lungs.
You use the inhaler when you feel the urge for a cigarette. • Lozenges supply a low dose of nicotine that gets absorbed into your bloodstream. Two other quit-smoking medications do not contain nicotine; they act on the brain to decrease nicotine cravings, nicotine withdrawal symptoms, or both. Varenicline (Chantix) and bupropion (Wellbutrin, Zyban) are prescription drugs. They imitate some effects of nicotine, cutting down on cravings and withdrawal symptoms. So if you slip and have a cigarette, you will experience less of a reward. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has reported both varenicline and bupropion may, in a few people, trigger thoughts of suicide or actual suicide attempts. Any person starting on these treatments, and their friends and family, should look for changes in mood and behavior.

understanding the necessary plan.” – Four Paws Father Dear Abby: “Afraid of the Loss” is not alone. Anyone who has known the love of a dog knows the fear of losing that unmatched companionship. When my dog was reaching the end of his lifespan, a fellow dog-lover advised me to get a puppy. I’m passing her advice along to “Afraid.” Get a puppy or go to the shelter and adopt a dog – any dog. You will save the dog, and the dog will save you right back.

Dear Abby: You gave some nice advice to “Afraid of the Loss” (June 25), who wrote concerning the impending death of a beloved pet. I think your suggestion of a support group is helpful, but having lost a pet I had for 16 years, I have experienced the deep pain this man will feel. Adding a second pet to his home while his pet is still alive often energizes an older pet. When the time comes, it will help the human to have another loving pet to help with the grieving. As I learned, only time was able to take the deep hurt to a place where I could think of him without tears. Keeping the ashes of a pet can be com-

Nirvana among Rock Hall noms Nirvana, Linda Ronstadt, Peter Gabriel, Hall and Oates, and The Replacements are among first-time nominees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The hall of fame announced its annual list of nominees Wednesday and half the field of 16 were first-time nominees. YES, Link Wray and The Zombies also received their first nominations. More than 600 voters will determine the class of 2014. Inductees will be announced in December and a ceremony will be next April in New York. The induction will be aired on HBO in May. Nirvana is nominated in its first year of eligibility. If selected for induction, the band would enter the hall of fame almost exactly 20 years after frontman Kurt Cobain’s suicide at age 27. Ronstadt receives her first nomination not long after she shared news she has Parkinson’s disease. Fans long have questioned her absence from the hall’s roster of stars. Similarly, long-denied YES joins the list after Rush finally struck a blow for prog rock with its induction earlier this year. Repeat nominees are KISS, LL Cool J, N.W.A., Cat Stevens, Deep Purple, The Meters, The Paul Butterfield Blues Band and Chic. It’s the eighth nomination for Chic since 2003, but comes as co-founder Nile Rodgers is enjoying widespread attention after his collaboration with Daft Punk earlier this year. KISS, LL Cool J and Stevens return to the list after absences of several years.

MSNBC announced Wednesday it had hired Mia Farrow’s son, a human rights activist and former Rhodes scholar, to host a weekday program on the left-leaning cable television network starting sometime next year. MSNBC chief executive Phil Griffin said Farrow’s show “will be a game changer for MSNBC, representing a fresh approach to how we deliver news.” He didn’t specify what he meant. MSNBC has struggled in the ratings in the post-election period. Farrow, in a statement, said he was excited to shake up people’s expectations for cable news. “This is a new generation of news show for a new, more engaged generation of viewers,” he said. “It’s a show about why the news matters to you – and what you can do to be part of the story.” Farrow, a Yale Law School graduate, founded the U.S. State Department’s Office of Global Youth Issues during President Barack Obama’s first term. On Tuesday, the Penguin Press announced it would publish a book by Farrow, “Pandora’s Box: How American Military Aid Creates America’s Enemies,” in 2015. Farrow also made headlines
recently when his mother suggested in an interview with Vanity Fair he could be the son of Frank Sinatra, not Woody Allen, as was long assumed. Allen has called the claim absurd.
The film has already begun production and is tentatively set to release in 2014.
Minaj launches line
Allen names new film Woody Allen has given his next film a name. Continuing his European intrigue, “Magic in the Moonlight” is set in southern France and stars Colin Firth, Emma Stone, Eileen Atkins, Marcia Gay Harden, Hamish Linklater, Simon McBurney and Jacki Weaver. Co-stars include Erica Leerhsen, Catherine McCormack, Paul Ritter and Jeremy Shamos. The Gravier Productions film is being produced by Letty Aronson and Stephen Tenenbaum. They’ve worked on a number of Allen’s films, from his latest “Blue Jasmine” to 2001’s “The Curse of the Jade Scorpion.” Allen has delivered a full-length feature every year since 1982. “Magic in the Moonlight” marks his 47th time in the director’s chair and his first time casting both Firth and Stone.
Nicki Minaj knows celebrities-turned-designers aren’t always taken seriously in the fashion world, but she doesn’t mind. At a launch event this week for her Kmart collection, Minaj said skepticism of stars lacking formal design training is “understandable,” but she insists it’s “not about being a designer.” The “Starships” rapper says her intention is simply to make clothes that she would love to wear. The line for Kmart and shopyourway.com features midriff-baring tops, patterned leggings and curve-hugging dresses, as well as jewelry, clutches and bejeweled caps. There’s also a pink velour track suit and a faux fur trapper hat. Minaj says Chanel, Versace and Herve Leger were among her inspirations. Prices range from $3.99 for a studded bracelet to $37.99 for a light wash, denim jacket.

Buyers enjoy free food at Henning Estates Jerry Kuyper
HUNTLEY – For those with an appetite for food or new housing, satisfaction may be yours Saturday (Oct. 19). Both will be offered at Henning Estates from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The food and beverages are free, but the semi-custom upscale ranch housing is not. The developers of Henning Estates, Pete LeSueur and Ryan VanLue of Rock Creek Homes are hosting the Fall Fest meet and greet. Families can meet the two community owners and ask
questions about new housing financing, the construction process, customization possibilities and owner warranties. Tours of three decorated ranch models will be available, as well as the food and beverages, all day. With the changing of the season from summer to fall, trees start to reveal hues of orange, red and yellow. This is ideal for Henning Estates as ranches in the community will be built on sites that average one-third acre and are placed among stands of mature trees, or along expanses of natural tall grass prairies and ponds. The home sites are so arranged on this 110-acre parcel of rolling land so that a family looking into their

They promised to emphasize the quality and craftsmanship found in their semi-custom houses, the ability to customize them and, finally, how to get financing. Donuts and coffee will be served in the morning and fresh baked pies and soft drinks in the afternoon. Special surprises will also be announced during the day as well.

• BUILDER Continued from page E1 “We decided to have this informal gathering so that people can see our community at its most vibrant, visual splendor,” VanLue said. “Our environmentally sensitive community always looks great, but with the mature tree’s changing colors and the flocks of geese and ducks landing in our ponds on their migration south, the timing is perfect to take all this in and imagine what living here in one of our ranches would be like.” With three on-site decorated models currently open, prospective buyers can walk through them and ask questions of sales staff or the owners. One of the decorated model ranches to be on display is the South Haven. Representing one of four ranch plans in the company portfolio, the two-bedroom, two-bath South Haven is on a one-third acre lot and is priced at $396,900. Amenities in the 2,260[Marker]-square-foot South Haven include granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, hardwood flooring, full basement, ceramic floor tile, maple cabinetry, architecturally “significant” ceilings and a landscaping package. The subdivision owners let buyers personalize ranch plans. Rock Creek Homes, which is based in Elgin, is one of a handful of builders willing to personalize floor plans. Because of custom construction experience, VanLue and LeSueur let buyers, among other things, move interior walls or create a wish list kitchen. They also said a buyers can put into play what they “might see in an architectural magazine.” Ranches at Henning Estates incorporate design cue’s found in high-end luxury single-family houses. Rock Creek Homes will incorporate 9-foot, first-floor ceilings for all plans. Cathedral or vaulted ceilings are found in great rooms, dining rooms and kitchens. The ranch plans include two to three bedrooms, two-and-one-half baths, kitchens with breakfast areas, living rooms, master-bedroom suites, basements, stamped concrete patios and attached two-car garages. Exteriors are brick, stone and cedar. Designs range in size from 1,800 to more than 2,353 square feet. Prices start in the upper $300,000s. Options include lookout and walkout basements, finished basements, stone hearth fireplaces, skylights, garden rooms and additional bedrooms. The subdivision is served by the Riley Elementary School District and Marengo High School. Chicago, Hoffman Estates and Schaumburg are accessible via highway and rail. Residents can commute on the Union Pacific Northwest Line Metra trains or by car via Interstate 90. To reach Henning Estates take Route 20 west from Interstate 90 for two miles and then turn right (east) on Church Road. The community entrance is on the north side of Church Road about one-quarter-mile from Route 20. Three models and a sale’s center are open 10 a.m. to 5 pm daily or by appointment. For information call (847) 338-3821
Rock Creek Development has a new semi-custom, 2353-square-foot ranch available for 30-day delivery at Henning Estates in Huntley. It is priced more than $400,000. or visit www.henningestates.com. Besides hosting a Fall Fest, VanLue and LeSueur have put a ranch available for 30-day delivery on the market at the subdivision. This stairfree, 2,353-square-foot Rockport ranch is priced in the low $400,000s. The buyer will get a walkout basement with 9-foot-tall walls, air conditioning, volume ceilings, three-car garage, sunroom, stamped concrete patio and hardwood flooring. Visual appeal of this Rockport model includes expansive windows that allow vast amounts of natural light to pour into every room, and ceilings that rise and fall to emphasize the size and shape of every room, VanLue noted. Ceilings rise to a height of nine feet, but in rooms with vaulted ceilings, such as the great room, the height can almost double. A master bedroom suite is big enough to accommodate a king-size bed, several night stands, an assortment of bureaus, and still have adequate walking room, VanLue added. The master suite has access to a private bath (with dual bowl vanity, corner soaking tub, separate shower and private water closet) and a walkin closet. Also included are air-conditioning, site-finished hardwood flooring and a full basement. The kitchen has cabinetry with crown molding, granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances (stove, refrigerator, dishwasher and garbage disposal). Along the back of the ranch is an enclosed sunroom, and a cedar deck with iron balusters. A stamped concrete patio is accessible from the walkout basement. From each of these areas there are unobstructed views of a pond and a restored tall grass prairie, VanLue said.

This deal beneits from clear thinking at the beginning. South is in three no-trump. West leads his fourth-highest spade and East puts up the king (denying the queen). What should declarer do? South’s auction -- a takeout double followed by a minimum no-trump bid -- showed a good 18 to 20 points. North bid three no-trump because he counted an extra point for his ive-card suit and expected his partner to be able to place the missing high cards based on the bidding. South starts with only four top tricks: one spade, two hearts and one club. He can get two diamond and four club winners, but he will presumably have to lose the lead twice because East needs the club king for his opening bid. Declarer must let East win
the irst trick. This sacriices one spade trick, but gains nine in the long run. South takes the third spade, plays a club to dummy’s ace (the king might drop singleton), and concedes a club. Here, East has no riposte. If declarer takes trick one, then when East gets in with, say, the club king, he returns the spade six (higher of two remaining cards) and West plays his three to keep communication with his partner. Then the contract fails, the defenders taking three spades, one diamond and one club.

“Anyone who ever had wanted to see or ever thought about coming out, should come out this year.” Wendy Kummerer, McHenry County Conservation District
PlanitNorthwest.com • Thursday, October 17, 2013
HISTORY Trail of History marks 25th and final year of living history event By JAMI KUNZER firstname.lastname@example.org
his could be the most memorable Trail of History yet, as the 25-year-old festival commemorates its final year. More than 250 volunteers will gather for the last time Oct. 19-20 at Glacial Park in Ringwood to host a living history interpretive event that demonstrates life as it was from 1670 to 1850 in the former Northwest Territory. The McHenry County Conservation District announced earlier this year it no longer would host the event. “Anyone who ever had wanted to see or ever thought about coming out, should come out this year,” said Wendy Kummerer, the district’s communications manager. “It’s the same excellent event it’s always been.” Along with the re-enactment of military tactics during the French and Indian War, the festival includes a frontier school house, log cabin living, pioneer games, a traveling medicine show, musicians, dancers, jugglers, authentic wars and culinary treats. Children will be able to make cornhusk dolls or candles and enjoy a dressup area. Visitors will travel along a 1-mile trail to more than 150 encampments as volunteers demonstrate the crafts and trades from early settler days. The event aims to show the interrelationship between nature, man and cultural development. To mark the final year, visitors will have the chance to buy historic photos of the festival through the years and sign a guest book with their memories of the event.
TRAIL OF HISTORY WHEN: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 19-20 WHERE: Glacial Park, 6316 Harts Road, Ringwood COST: Entrance fee is $8 adults; $4 seniors and children ages 6 to 12. Those 5 and younger are free. Gates close at 3 p.m. to allow visitors to make the 1-mile hike over hilly terrain to the encampment. For those unable to make the walk, there is a special-needs parking area. INFO: www.mccdistrict.org or 815-338-6223. They’ll also be able to take a one-half mile walk and plant trees in their names as a representation of the future of Glacial Park, Kummerer said. “Families can leave their memories in Glacial Park,” she said. Nestled at the foot of the glacial kames, or mounds of sand and gravel, in Glacial Park, the festival’s grounds are built on historic agricultural tiles that are failing. “Eventually, it would have to end or be moved,” Kummerer said. Because the district’s budget is limited and the event doesn’t break even, organizers decided to cancel it. “With that said, we’re not moving away from history or cultural interpretations,” she said. “There are many little events we do where people can come out and visit on a smaller scale and connect with our history and the land.” The district offers numerous special events and nature hikes, as well as more than 300 camps and public programs. The Trail of History actually began in 1989 as the Kames Rendezvous. In 1990, the event was renamed the Trail of History to reflect its focus on living history interpretation.

Benedict Cumberbatch (left) and Daniel Brühl star in “The Fifth Estate.” Photo provided
‘The Fifth Estate’ too frenetic By DENNIS HARVEY Variety Ripped from headlines that still feel wet, “The Fifth Estate” dramatizes the fast, controversial rise of anonymouswhistleblower website WikiLeaks and its figurehead, Julian Assange. Aiming to provide the kind of speculative personality portrait behind another sweeping digital-age change in communication that touches nearly everyone, a la “The Social Network,” helmer Bill Condon and scenarist Josh Singer’s film must also stuff in a heavy load of global events, all in a hyperkinetic style aping today’s speed of information dispersal. Results can’t help but stimulate, but they’re also cluttered and overly frenetic, resulting in a narrative less informative, cogent and even emotionally engaging than Alex Gibney’s recent doc “We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks.” After an opening credits montage that rockets through the history of news media, from hand-lettered scrolls to the Internet, the pic leaps into the peak October 2010 moment of WikiLeaks’ fame and notoriety, when Assange (Benedict Cumberbatch) began releasing an enormous store of leaked classified U.S. government documents. The resulting fracas outshone even prior firestorms incurred by WikiLeaks, and as postscripts note, Assange remains in hiding at Ecuador’s London embassy while various angry governments call for his extradition. The remainder of the film tracks back to 2007, when he first makes contact with German technology activist Daniel Domscheit-Berg (Daniel
“The Fifth Estate” STARRING: Benedict Cumberbatch, Daniel Brühl
PLOT: A dramatic thriller based on real events, “The Fifth Estate” reveals the quest to expose the deceptions and corruptions of power that turned an Internet upstart into the 21st century’s most iercely debated organization. RATED: R for language and some violence TIME: 2 hours, 8 minutes Bruehl), whom he trusts enough to make a close collaborator. Daniel is an enthusiastic acolyte, so much so that the 24/7 devotion Julian demands soon exasperates Daniel’s girlfriend (Alicia Vikander in a standard thankless role). The mysterious, seemingly large Wiki organization Assange frequently alludes to turns out to be nothing but “a website, a couple email addresses, and you,” he eventually admits, though others climb on board. But even as WikiLeaks appears to be winning the information war in forcing transparency from governments and corporations, pushing them toward greater ethical accountability, Assange shows signs of megalomania, instability and questionable judgment. Returning to the screenplay’s start point, his troops rebel when Assange balks at redacting any top-secret American communiques, even the parts that might put innocent lives at lethal risk in global hot spots. Both the kindest and most damning thing you can say about “The Fifth Estate” is that it primarily hobbles itself by trying to cram in more contextneedy material than any single drama
should have to bear. You can feel the strain on “The West Wing” writer Singer, penning his first big-screen effort, as practically every line has to sum up a philosophy, situation or dilemma. Likewise, Condon, usually a director of admirable cogency and restraint, lays on a battery of audiovisual tactics (onscreen text, graphics, split screen, vertical wipes, etc.), largely set to techno tracks or Carter Burwell’s equally pounding score. Tobias Schliesser’s camera often jitters as if on its 10th espresso, while Virginia Katz’s editing seldom pauses for breath. There’s conceptual logic behind these decisions, but they are as frequently off-putting as they are thematically apt. No wonder the two perhaps most memorable scenes are among the very few that slow enough to allow nuance: an uncomfortable visit to Daniel’s parents’ home, when Julian openly disdains them as bourgeois intellectuals; and a let’s-just get-drunk moment between Laura Linney and Stanley Tucci as State Department honchos whose careers won’t likely survive the latest Wiki leaks. German star Bruehl is stuck playing Domscheit-Berg – who wrote one of the two tomes the script draws on – as a single-note nice guy, the standard audience-alter-ego witness to events that spiral out of control. Hardworking Cumberbatch captures Assange’s slightly otherworldly air, as well as numerous creepier qualities. (The real-life man may be a hero to many, but few claim he’s a nice guy.) Still, it too feels like a somewhat onedimensional turn, hemmed in by an overall sensibility that just can’t stop to probe deeper.

‘Lipstick Mom’ Vasquez brings parenting humor to Crystal Lake By JAMI KUNZER firstname.lastname@example.org
n the journey of motherhood, it’s easy to forget the lipstick. Don’t, says comedian Patti Vasquez, who will present “Lipstick Mom” at 8 p.m. Oct. 18 at the Raue Center for the Arts, 26 N. Williams St., Crystal Lake. The show’s theme grew out of Vasquez hearing, “You look good ... for having two kids.” “I called it ‘Lipstick Mom’ because it seems odd to me that if you have kids you’re not allowed to look attractive,” she said. “You can. It just takes a little more elastic than it used to.” A Chicago native who got her start more than a decade ago at Zanies Comedy Club, Vasquez has headlined comedy clubs and theaters throughout the country, often appearing at Lucy’s Comedy Cafe at the Raue. She’s appeared in numerous comedy festivals, including HBO’s Las Vegas Comedy Festival, and in several television shows. She also is featured on the new reality series, “My Life Is A Joke,” on the OWN network. Having created “Lipstick Mom” last year, she’s determined to bring parenting humor back to the stage at a time when many comedians are more geared toward “party” humor, including Chel-
sea Handler and Sarah Silverman. “There hasn’t really been any successful mom comedians in a long time,” she said. Mom humor has waned since the days of Erma Bombeck, known for her newspaper column and bestselling humor books, and television shows, such as “Roseanne,” she said. One of the last television shows featuring mom humor was probably “Grace Under Fire” starring Brett Butler. Because of this, Vasquez is working on a television script based on her comedy show. Mother to two sons, including a special needs child, Vasquez’ humor has been described as tackling “social issues with a cheerful edginess that appeals to audiences of all backgrounds.” As a mom, she said, “There are moments where you go, ‘I don’t know how I’m going to get through this moment.” Humor helps, she said, and it’s inevitable. She recalled the time her son yelled from the bathroom, “Mom, I have poop on my hands.” “I have a college degree. I never thought I would have these conversations. It’s like, ‘Then wash your hands!’ “You use that voice all day when they’re little, ‘Okaaay, let’s gooo.’ All sing-songy. And then you’re talking to adults that way.” The show not only creates an ideal
WHEN: 8 p.m. Oct. 18 WHERE: Raue Center for the Arts, 26 N. Williams St., Crystal Lake COST & INFO: Featuring Patti Vasquez, a Chicago native who got her start more than a decade ago at Zanies Comedy Club. Her unique perspective on family and relationships has been described as “comedy with a heart.” Tickets: $20. Tickets and information: 815-356-9212 or www.rauecenter.org.
outlet for women, she said, it has appealed to everyone because it’s simply stories about life. She’s had single women without children come up to her after the show and say, “You’re the kind of mom I dream of being some day.” As a child, she said she didn’t really consider herself funny. Some might remember her as quite and withdrawn, she said. She gained more confidence as she grew older. “I’ve always used humor to get through anything,” she said. Through the years, she’s written and performed various other hit solo shows for theater audiences, including “Tequila and Shamrocks: Every Flower Has Her Roots”; “Pregnant Party Girl: From Stoli’s to Stirrups”; and “Mamacita: Tales of a Diaper Diva.” In describing her latest show on her blog at www.pattivasquez.com, she writes about her love of spanx and of course, lipstick. “I may not have time to work out for hours, schedule facials, get my hair colored or shop for the latest fashions, but I always have time for lipstick,” she writes.

FEATURED RELEASE Pearl Jam
“Lightning Bolt” HH 1/2 Pearl Jam undoubtedly has become one of those bands who could tour forever off the strength of its early material, making any new releases icing on the cake. “Lightning Bolt,” the band’s 10th studio album, isn’t the kind of release that is going to change that, either. It’s not going to force you to lose all hope in the band, but it’s also not going to make you want to keep your copy of “Ten” under a layer of dust. “Lightning Bolt” is yet another post-2000 Pearl Jam album that is considerably middle-of-theroad. It may be the best of modern-day Pearl Jam albums, but it still resides somewhere in the middle of the hierarchy of the band’s releases. One thing Pearl Jam has been good at is not sounding dated. They often adjust their sound enough to merit some relevance. And they exhibit no signs of slowing down. The punksounding “Mind Your Manners” has them pouring every bit of their energy into the song. It’s the type of song that should be featured during a “Sons of Anarchy” chase scene as it was this
NEW&NOTEWORTHY Lorde “Pure Heroine” HHH 1/2
ROB CARROLL WITH MUSIC’S NEW RELEASES
past week. The rest of the songs on “Lightning Bolt” aren’t nearly as electrified. The album suffers from it in some spots. “Pendulum” and “Yellow Moon” are too plodding. But there’s also times where Pearl Jam finds a nice middle ground. Both “Getaway” and the title track are in that area as the band finds the perfect mix of fast and slow. Pearl Jam’s best years may be behind them, but “Lightning Bolt” proves they still can make a decent album.
Lorde, aka 16-year-old Ella Yelich-O’Connor, couldn’t have chosen a better vehicle to introduce herself to mainstream audiences than “Pure Heroine.” The New Zealand resident is fearless on her debut album as she saunters her way through 10 sultry electropop songs. At only 16 years of age, Lorde sure seems like she’s experienced a lot in life. And she comes off as being awfully comfortable singing about all of it, too, whether it’s lashing back at lavish lifestyles on “Royals” or having a drink spilled on her on “Ribs.” What makes “Pure Heroine” even more impressive is these are stories straight from Yelich-O’Connor. She has a song-writing credit on each of the tracks on the album. A few of Yelich-O’Connor’s lyrics may be a bit childish, but she still blows away most 16-year-old songwriters. The rest of her tales are as advanced as the sound of her voice, which can be downright mesmerizing at times. Give “A World Alone” a listen and try not to get lost in her voice. “Pure Heroine” has a run time of just over 37 minutes. It would be great to see what Lorde could do with more time. Still, the album is concise and rarely wanders. OUT THIS WEEK Anberlin, “Devotion”; The Avett Brothers, “Magpie and the Dandelion”; Mary J.
