DIXON | THE CRUNDWELL AFTERMATH

Ballot question; money saver Council supports choice, not Settlement money to help repay change in form of government bonds early, save $3.8 million city’s form of government. While the commissioners fully support citizens’ right to vote on the issue, they don’t necessarily support the potential change. A mayor-appointed task force had recommended the ballot question. Commissioners Dennis Considine and Colleen Brechon said they opposed the change to establish a city manager.

DIXON – The Dixon City Council might not support a switch to the city manager form of government, but it wants to give citizens that option. At a special meeting Wednesday, the council unanimously approved an ordinance to place a referendum on the November 2014 general election ballot so that voters can choose the

DIXON – The city will save nearly $4 million under an agreement with Midland States Bank, which has agreed to allow an early payoff of three bonds. The bonds were issued in 2008, 2010 and 2011 and, under the bond arrangements, couldn’t be paid off any sooner than 2018, 2020 and 2021, respectively, Finance Director Paula Meyer said Wednesday.

BALLOT CONTINUED ON A2

But after Meyer and Commissioner Dave Blackburn met a few weeks ago with Jeffrey Lovett, the bank’s regional market president, the bank agreed to let the city pay off the bonds now, saving about $3.87 million in interest. The bank had no obligation to allow the early payment, Meyer said, but the city approached the bank because officials believed taxpayers deserved to have the city try. SAVER CONTINUED ON A5

ILLINOIS | GAY MARRIAGE

Few civil unions so far in Sauk Valley Local lawmakers split on same-sex marriage BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 525

Two years ago, the Illinois Legislature approved civil unions, which granted the rights of marriage – but not the right to marry – to straight and gay couples. Since that time, Whiteside and Lee counties have each recorded 10 civil unions. On Tuesday, the Illinois House passed a Senate bill to allow same-sex marriage, which Gov. Pat Quinn is expected to sign. The bill would take effect in June. Barb Schwamberger, founder of Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays Sauk Valley, was surprised with the number of civil unions in the Sauk Valley, saying she thought it would be higher. She said some gay couples in the area

Gov. Pat Quinn speaks to reporters Wednesday in Springfield. With the Legislature’s blessing, proponents of gay marriage in Illinois now turn to implementation. Quinn must sign the bill, but has until it takes effect July 1. have gone to other states to get married. Most people around here accept those relationships, she said, but some fear the

consequences if they go public. “People are afraid. People can be hateful,” Schwamberger said. “Sometimes we’re not totally aware of that because it’s underground.” She knows a prominent couple in the community who are reluctant to reveal their relationship publicly. In the Legislature, local lawmakers voted along party lines. The two Democrats representing Whiteside County, Sen. Mike Jacobs of East Moline and Rep. Mike Smiddy of Hillsdale, supported the bill, while the two Dixon Republicans, Sen. Tim Bivins and Rep. Tom Demmer, voted against it. Demmer said his office received thousands of messages – in the form of emails, letters and phone calls – about the issue, most opposing gay marriage. The majority of messages came from inside his district, he said.

ROCK FALLS – The embattled head of Coloma Township broke down in tears during an interview Wednesday and took the blame for the township’s financial reporting problems. “It’s all on me,” Supervisor Debra Burke said in an interview at her township office. This admission followed two Sauk Valley Media stories that reported the township’s failure to file reports with the state and in the newspaper. When the township finally got around to publishing reports, they included many wrong figures. On Tuesday, Burke, who has been supervisor since 1981, sent an email to township trustees blaming cemetery manager Mary Bowman for sending information to the newspaper about problems in the financial reports.

“I want to thank the task force, with due respect, for everything they’ve done,� Considine said. “And I don’t want anyone to misconstrue the fact that I’m voting to put this on the ballot, that I’m any way in favor of changing the form of the Dixon city government.� Brechon said she believed the city manager form of government gives too much control to a single person. “It’s my strong belief in the voter process, which is why I’m willing to put my name behind this ordinance,� she said. “I’m of the belief we need a [city] administrator but not a [city] manager. I think that too much control will be in the hand of one person, which we’ve already had a bit of experience with. And I just don’t like that idea anymore.� The governmental task force, which was appointed by Mayor Jim Burke and approved by the City Council to determine the best form of government for Dixon, released its formal recommendation in August in a document

copied to the mayor and each commissioner. The task force, which studied various forms of city government beginning in May, was established after the Rita Crundwell scandal. The task force recommended that the City Council let citizens decide which form of government was best by asking this question on the November 2014 ballot: “Shall the city of Dixon adopt the managerial form of municipal government?� “I don’t really have a firm position on it,� Burke said. “I really don’t.� The mayor said he’s “fine

with however it goes� and thinks Dixon residents will be taking a good, long look at both options during the next 12 months. He added that he thought it might be a good idea to have some presentations to inform residents about both options. Commissioner Jeff Kuhn also said he’s not sure where he stands on the decision, and wants to give David Nord a year to prove himself and to see how that role fits with the city government. Nord is expected to be hired by the City Council as Dixon’s first city administrator during a special meeting Nov. 12.

“I think the definition of marriage is between one woman and one man,� Demmer said. He said he and others would continue to work to ensure that religious objections are respected. Bivins said he feared the Legislature would water down religious protections in the bill over time. As for consequences to the public, Bivins said, they remain to be seen. “Before you tear down the fence, you’d better ask why it was put there in the first place,� he said. “The majority [in the Legislature] redefined marriage, which hasn’t been done in thousands of years.�

ROCK FALLS

GOP hopeful concedes point McKinley says his tax statement was misleading BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 525

Last week, a Republican candidate for state representative accused Democratic incumbent Mike Smiddy of plotting to raise income taxes on 85 percent of Illinois families. Jeff McKinley, who plans to run in March’s GOP primary, even issued a news release to that effect. On Tuesday, he stood by his release. A day later, however, he conceded it was misleading.

Everyone involved agrees that Smiddy, a Hillsdale Democrat whose disMike trict includes Smiddy Whiteside County, has co-sponsored a bill that would put a constitutional amendment on next November’s ballot to allow a graduated income tax in Illinois. Under such a system, tax rates would rise progressively with higher incomes. Illinois is one of only a few states with a flat tax rate. In last week’s news release, McKinley referred to a study by the Illinois Policy Institute, a Chi-

cago-based conservative think tank, which found that a graduated tax plan would raise Jeff rates on 85 McKinley percent of the state’s families. But Smiddy said he had never signed on to any specific plan for graduated tax rates. On Wednesday, McKinley acknowledged that fact, saying the 85 percent figure was misleading. “I will concede that he may not have a specific plan that he has publicly backed,” McKinley said. “It defies common logic if they are not going to be ultimately in support of imposing a pretty sig-

nificant tax regime. This is not going to decrease taxes. The whole purpose is to increase revenue.” In this economic climate, he said, no one should pay more taxes. Another Republican candidate is Jim Wozniak. Both men are assistant state’s attorneys in Rock Island County. Wozniak said Tuesday he knew of no specific graduated tax plan that Smiddy supported. Smiddy said Wednesday that there would be enough time for debate next year when he knows who his opponent is. The race in the 71st District might be one of only a few that are competitive next year.

WASHINGTON – Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., spoke about the Thomson prison during a Senate committee meeting Wednesday. “The opening of Thomson prison is going to create good-paying jobs for people living in Iowa and my home state of Illinois,” Durbin said. “It is going to lessen the overcrowding in the prison system and provide critical beds that are necessary for the protection of the men and women who work so hard for the Fed-

Durbin spoke about the Thomson prison during a Senate committee meeting Wednesday. eral Bureau of Prisons.” Charles Samuels, director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons, told the commit-

tee that his agency is “looking forward to be able to fully activate the Thomson facility,” which is in Carroll

County along the Mississippi River. He said the bureau desperately needs the prison beds because of overcrowding at high-security facilities. The state built the 1,600cell, maximum-security prison a decade ago, then decided it couldn’t afford to run it. It had been looking for a buyer for years. The federal government bought it last fall. The prison is expected to bring 1,100 jobs and $200 million in annual economic impact to the area. The full activation of Thomson prison is expected to take 2 years at a cost of $25 million in fiscal year 2014 for upgrades and renovations and $168 million in fiscal year 2015 for equipment and staffing.

Burke: Coverage humiliating Lovett: Agreement a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;giftâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to city BLAME

CONTINUED FROM A1

In an interview Wednesday morning, Burke said she felt â&#x20AC;&#x153;betrayedâ&#x20AC;? by Bowman and agreed everything in the township is public information. Last week, she told Sauk Valley Media that she had hoped to get financial reports to the state comptroller by Oct. 31. Asked about that Wednesday, Burke started shaking and then broke down into tears while sitting at a table in the township meeting room. Two employees worked nearby. Burke said the recent news coverage had humiliated her, so she went away for a few days, which is why she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t submit the reports last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to be accurate,â&#x20AC;? said Burke, who also is Colomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s treasurer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not good at math.â&#x20AC;? Statewide, Burke has been recognized for her expertise in providing general assistance to the poor, which is one of the major functions of townships. She has taught classes on the subject.

Burke upset with cemetery manager Last month, Sauk Valley Media reported that Coloma was the only government entity in Whiteside County that hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turned in its financial report to the state comptroller. Of the 21 other townships, all but one are smaller. In 2012, Whiteside County withheld more than $400,000 in property

tax revenue from Coloma because the township hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t published its financial statements in the newspaper. In a recent interview, Burke said the problems happened, in part, because she had been dealing with health problems, including three major surgeries. On Tuesday, though, the supervisor sent an email to the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trustees, Peggy McFadden, Gene Jacoby and Mary Ann Richardson, lashing out at Bowman, the cemetery manager. She accused Bowman of sending Sauk Valley Media a copy of Colomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last four financial statements, which had been published in the newspaper. Bowman acknowledged she had, saying she had the right to do so. Bowman said she had long been concerned with the townshipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finances because she found wrong numbers in the reports. Those annual statements have included the same numbers for some expense and revenue line items year after year. Burke admitted last month the statements contained errors.

took over the cemetery in 2005. In Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interview, Burke said she wrote the email because she wanted the trustees â&#x20AC;&#x153;to know what I know.â&#x20AC;? Asked whether it was wrong for Bowman to speak with others about township problems, Burke would say only that she felt betrayed. Trustee McFadden described the finances as a mess. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to start over,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After we get things in order, then we should go back and check all the other stuff. Right now, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what the numbers are.â&#x20AC;? Trustees Jacoby and Richardson couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be reached for comment. Jacoby has been a trustee for more than 35 years. As for her future with the township, Bowman doubted Burke would fire her. And if Burke did, Bowman said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would find out what my rights are.â&#x20AC;?

SAVER

CONTINUED FROM A1

Lovett knew what the city was going to ask before he ever sat down with Meyer and Blackburn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I read the newspapers and saw the settlement, I assumed they were discussing ways to rebuild some captial and reduce the debt,â&#x20AC;? Lovett said. Instead of holding to the original agreement, or negotiating, Lovett said he agreed to let the city pay off the bonds, and that it was an â&#x20AC;&#x153;easy decision,â&#x20AC;? adding that Midland States Bank is a community bank and wants to be a part of the Dixon community in the good times and the bad. Sauk Valley Bank also had about $1 million of the bond amount and also agreed to let the city pay it back early, Lovett said. The city will pay off the bonds with funds received in a lawsuit settlement in the matter of former Comptroller Rita Crundwell, Meyer said. Crundwell is serving a term of nearly 20 years in federal prison for stealing more than $53 million from the city over two decades. The balance on the bonds at the end of October was $12,316,000, Meyer said, adding that the total repayment would have been $16,184,610.

Meyer and Blackburn didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect the bank to agree to an early payoff, but were hoping for a chance to negotiate, Meyer said. The agreement was, in a sense, a gift to the city, Lovett said, adding that not only does the bank have offices in Dixon, but employees who live in the city. Paying off that external debt was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;must,â&#x20AC;? Meyer had said when talking about use of $40 million the city will receive from the settlement. On Monday, the Dixon City Council approved the allocation of $8,678,083 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; of the $14 million the city has received so far â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to pay interfund loans, which is money it had borrowed from its own operating funds. The city should receive the remainder of the $40 million by Thanksgiving and have proceeds from the sale of Crundwellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s property by the end of the year, Meyer said Monday. If Midland hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agreed to the early payoff, Meyer said, she had another plan to save the city some money. Meyer had planned to put about $14.5 million from the settlement in U.S. Treasury bonds, an investment she expected would have yielded more than $1.6 million. The agreement with Midland States Bank will allow the city to save more than twice what Meyer had hoped to realize from the investment.

Trustees: Finances a mess In an interview, Bowman said she told township officials about the problems she had seen in the finances. She said she was particularly concerned with the cemeteryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perpetuity account, which must be kept intact for the cemeteryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future maintenance. Bowman became manager in 1993 and was kept on when the township

SPRINGFIELD SCOOP

Right-to-work query prompts artful dodging Three GOPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ers wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell their views on issue

Joe Heller, Heller Syndication

STATEHOUSE INSIDER

Comparison invites questions Candidate thinks GOP intimidated by the Madigans Republican attorney general candidate Paul Schimpf last week gave a brief talk at a luncheon sponsored by the Sangamon County Republican Network. Schimpf, a former lawyer in the Marine Corps, had this to say about the formidable challenge of taking on Democratic incumbent Attorney General Lisa Madigan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve helped out with the prosecution of Saddam Hussein, the proverbial ace of spades, the Madigan family just doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look quite so intimidating,â&#x20AC;? he said. Yikes. A statement like that sort of invites follow-up questions from the news media, including one asking whether the comment was a little over the top. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s over the top,â&#x20AC;? Schimpf said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the Republican Party is intimidated by the Madigan family. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not suggesting the Madigan family is corrupt.

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not demonizing Lisa Madigan.â&#x20AC;? Schimpf was also asked whether he was comparing the Madigan family to the notorious Iraqi dictator. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m comparing them to Saddam Paul Hussein,â&#x20AC;? Schimpf he said. Candidate â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Madifor the gans have Republican the Illinois nomination for Illinois Republiattorney can Party general buffaloed. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve dealt with weightier matters than a statewide election in Illinois.â&#x20AC;? Just to be clear, Schimpf did not prosecute Hussein himself. That was left up to the Iraqis. However, he said he did advise the prosecution team on strategy and other tech-

niques for effectively pressing their case. He said he also rehearsed the prosecutors on presentation prior to key moments in the trial.

"USYWEBSITE A while ago, Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka launched a website called The Ledger that contains a bunch of financial information about state government. She said the site has had 2.5 million hits since it was launched in March. Care to guess what part of the site has proved most popular? Topinka said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the part that lists public worker salaries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has been viewed on every continent except Antarctica. And weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working on penguins just to see if we can get that in order to make it universal,â&#x20AC;? Topinka said on the widespread popularity of The Ledger website.

!LLINGOODFUN There was a story out of Virginia last week about the Virginia Executive Mansion. Apparently a tradition there is for an outgoing governor to play a trick â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in good fun, of course â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on the incom-

ing governor, according to a story in the Richmond Times-Dispatch. It quoted Gov. Bob McDonnell, who said that when he moved into the mansion, cell phones would start ringing in the middle of the night. It turned out his predecessor, Timothy Kaine, had hidden some phones in the walls and other locations in the mansion. It took people a couple of days to track down the phones and determine they were Kaineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parting trick. Kaineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s predecessor, the story said, left a cardboard cutout of himself in the shower as his trick. You may ask whether Illinois has a similar tradition. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know, because no one seems to live in the Executive Mansion anymore.

Letters need to ease up on abortion issue SHARON McLANE Grand Detour

I speak for myself and other readers who agree with Richard Geigerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letter [â&#x20AC;&#x153;Letter writer would impose views on others,â&#x20AC;? The Readerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Voice, Oct. 29] expressing a view many of us share regarding Mr. Beckerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s continual efforts to â&#x20AC;&#x153;impose his own religious beliefs on everyone else.â&#x20AC;? Great letter, on all points, Mr. Geiger. I apologize to friends

and family who agree with Mr. Beckerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opinion on abortion. My wish is only that this sensitive subject not be brought up time and again in letters to the editor. It serves only to create ill feelings in those of us who happen to â&#x20AC;&#x153;believeâ&#x20AC;? differently. We try not to impose our opinions on you as consistently as Mr. Beckerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opinion appears before us. I want to reference a letter I wrote 4 years ago on July 14, 2009. Since then, I have stayed silent â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but my opinion remains unchanged. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wish that people would stop telling us

how we should feel about abortion. I wish the Telegraph could refuse to publish any opinion on this controversial subject. I am tired of hearing about it, reading about it, having it appear in the letters constantly as if this is something readers are interested in reading over and over again. We arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. There will always be two sides to the question. And, most assuredly, the answer will not be found in any letters to the editor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My belief in humanity assures me that no one is pro-abortion. But, honestly, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not interested in how anyone else feels. I have an opinion of my

SPRINGFIELD â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Usually, professional politicians view taking a position on an issue as a means to getting elected â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not a reason to get elected. In other words, they ask themselves, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What can I say â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or not say â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to please enough voters to win an election?â&#x20AC;? But what they ought to be asking themselves is, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What are my core beliefs, and how can I persuade voters of the rightness of my cause?â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why so often our elected officials end up being followers rather than leaders. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the most annoying things about Springfield: the politician with the wetted finger in the air trying to discern which way the political winds are blowing. In such cases, voters find themselves not voting for a set of principles but for a candidate who is nothing more than an amalgamation of political calculations. But whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even sadder is that politicians often refuse to take a stand on an issue. For example, Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin have enacted forms of so-called right-to-work laws in recent years, and Missouri and Kentucky are considering moves in that direction. And Iowa, the Land of Lincolnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only other neighbor, has had one for many years. Essentially, a right-towork law prevents people from being forced to join or pay money to a union as a condition of their employment. Without such a law, workers can be forced to financially support a union they may not agree with â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such is the case for many workers in Illinois. It is possible Illinois will become an island of forced unionism in a sea of right-to-work states. If that happens, there will be enormous economic consequences â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not the least of which is that employers looking to expand may choose our neighbors over us. SO, ALONG WITH MY colleagues at Illinois News Network, I contacted each of the Illinois gubernatorial hopefuls and asked how they stood on this issue. Yes, I realize that such legislation would flounder in the current Illinois General Assembly. But legislative bodies change over time, and with the proper leadership, lawmakers can be persuaded to vote differently. Also, voters deserve to know not just what a candidate says he will do â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but what he believes. After all, political envi-

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Let not the government or the court dictate the reading matter of a free people.â&#x20AC;? Samuel B. Epstein, Illinois state judge, 1962

ronments change, and a bill that would never pass now may stand a fighting chance down the road. If a candidate has stated a position early on, he can say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The voters knew this when they elected me, and I have a mandate for change when the opportunity presents itself.â&#x20AC;? FOR THE RECORD, Gov. Pat Quinn opposes rightto-work laws. GOP gubernatorial hopeful Bruce Rauner supports the concept of allowing individual Illinois counties and municipalities to vote on whether they want to keep the status quo or adopt a local State Sen. right-toBill Brady work ordiRBloomington nance. But the â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reality three other is that the Democrats Republicans arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t likely running for to allow governor anythingâ&#x20AC;? on right-to-work, w o u l d n â&#x20AC;&#x2122; t Brady said. commit to a position. State Treasurer Dan Rutherford and state Sens. Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard all said the political reality in Illinois is such that it would be impossible to pass a right-to-work law in Illinois. But thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s value still in asking questions like these, because they help shed light on a politicianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s values and opinions. Where candidates stand on an issue such as right to work is important to know â&#x20AC;&#x201C; after all, it has the potential to be one of the most important economic issues facing the state. Answers like the one given by Brady are not helpful. The state Senator from Bloomington says the reality is that the Democrats control the General Assembly, and therefore right-to-work laws are irrelevant. He told me I was wasting his breath to pursue the questioning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reality is that the Democrats arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t likely to allow anything,â&#x20AC;? he said. Therefore, he said, his campaign â&#x20AC;&#x153;is not focusedâ&#x20AC;? on the issue. But, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t voters deserve to be fully informed about how he and the other candidates stand before they enter voting booths? Instead, we have politicians dodging questions. Voters deserve better. Note to readers: Scott Reederâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column is underwritten by the Illinois Policy Institute.

Fallon counts his blessings MCT News Service

PHILADELPHIA â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Jimmy Fallon is a thankful guy. His Friday night â&#x20AC;&#x153;thankyou notesâ&#x20AC;? are a staple of NBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,â&#x20AC;? but the gratitudeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than a running gag. On a recent pass through Philadelphia, where the NBC â&#x20AC;&#x153;Late Nightâ&#x20AC;? host schmoozed everyone from anchors to advertisers at NBC10 (WCAU-TV) before stopping to pick up lunch, he took to Twitter to tell the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official account, @ PhiladelphiaGov, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a great city. Thank you for the Roots!â&#x20AC;? That would be the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Late Nightâ&#x20AC;? Philly-born house band, whose members are now in their fifth season as Fallonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s musical (and comedic) co-stars.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;No one else can put their band in sketches and have them score,â&#x20AC;? Fallon told me in Jimmy an interview Fallon at NBC10. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talented, talented people. When I first hired them, they were a band, a great band. Now, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re friends. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re family.â&#x20AC;? The Roots, as youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve probably heard, will be moving with Fallon to 11:35 p.m. ET, when he takes over â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Tonight Showâ&#x20AC;? from Jay Leno on Feb. 17. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was the first question I asked. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Has anyone talked to The Roots about this? Are they down?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Fallon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so excited. Dealâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done, contractâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signed, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all cool.â&#x20AC;?

Fallon recently turned 39 and has had a couple of major life changes in recent months, but it was the arrival of his and wife, Nancyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, new daughter, Winnie, born in July with the help of a gestational carrier, that â&#x20AC;&#x153;was the big emotional moment for me,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been trying for a long time, my wife and I,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not easy to have children, clearly, for some men and women. So we struggled for about five years, trying every single thing. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just draining and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just got to keep your hopes up.â&#x20AC;? Asked which was most likely to keep him awake â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the prospect of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tonightâ&#x20AC;? or his new daughter â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Fallon quipped, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thank God for sleeping pills.â&#x20AC;?

Veterans Day Lawmakers approve tax breaks honors are for Still no pension deal as all who served fall session nears end ILLINOIS LEGISLATURE

SPRINGFIELD (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Illinois lawmakers on Wednesday advanced tax breaks worth millions of dollars for Archer Daniels Midland Company and the newly merged OfficeMax and Office Depot, but they were set to end their fall session without taking action on an issue that could be a roadblock for those deals: the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $100 billion pension shortfall. Gov. Pat Quinn has said he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t consider â&#x20AC;&#x201C; much less sign â&#x20AC;&#x201C; any corporate incentives until legislators put a bill on his desk that addresses the unfunded pension liability, which is the worst of any state. House Speaker Michael Madigan said Wednesday no agreement is coming this week, and he hopes lawmakers will be able to return to Springfield before the end of the year to pass â&#x20AC;&#x153;meaningfulâ&#x20AC;? reform. But any pension agreement will need the backing of a majority of both

AP

Illinois Rep. Ron Sandack, R-Downers Grove, argues tax incentive legislation while on the House floor during veto session Wednesday in Springfield. the House and Senate â&#x20AC;&#x201C; support that has been elusive for years, and continues to be tough to drum up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Were in some very difficult, challenging negotiations, and getting everybody on the same page is proving to just be way more difficult than I would have liked or I would have anticipated,â&#x20AC;? said Rep.

Elaine Nekritz, a Northbrook Democrat and Madiganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s point person in the House on pensions. The tax incentives add some new urgency to the discussion. Naperville-based OfficeMax and Florida-based Office Depot completed their merger Friday, and the new company â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which is using the name Office Depot Inc. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is debating between Illinois and Florida for its corporate headquarters, interim co-CEO Ravi Saligram told a Senate committee. He said the new board of directors already is comparing the two sites and a decision could come quickly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think now time is of the essence,â&#x20AC;? Saligram said. The incentive package would give Office Depot up to $53 million in tax breaks over 15 years. Saligram said the company has 2,050 employees in Naperville. If its headquarters is there it would add another 200 jobs and make capital investments of $150 million.

Dear Abby: Veterans Day is next week, and I hope youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll address something I have encountered over the years. I am a Navy veteran who served four years as a Seabee. I was one of the first women to be assigned to a combat unit, and I am proud of my service. However, I dread it when Veterans Day rolls around. Why do people assume that because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a woman I am not a veteran? Two years ago, when I went into a restaurant that serves veterans a free meal, the man in front of me was asked if he wanted a veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; menu. He declined. The hostess did not ask me if I needed one; I had to request it. Later in the meal, the manager went to each of the tables speaking to the veterans, but skipped mine. Today, many women serve, and it should not be a stretch that some veterans are female. Would you comment, Abby? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Overlooked in Lexington, Ky. Dear Overlooked: Gladly. I can understand why you were offended. However, I hope you realize that what happened occurred because of these peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ignorance, and it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t personal. While our armed forces have always been predominantly male, women have officially been part of our military only since World War II. Many veterans wear hats or other items that identify what branch of the service they were in. To prevent this oversight from happening to you again, wear an insignia next Monday, which is Veterans Day. If you do, it will draw attention to the fact

dearABBY !BIGAIL6AN "URENS *EANNE Phillips) column appears during the week through Universal Press Syndicate.

that many women serve in the military, which might be helpful to other female veterans. Thank you for your service to our country. Dear Abby: My wife and I are having a disagreement about texting. She insisted that you can text anyone anytime â&#x20AC;&#x201C; day or night. I feel you shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t text after a time when you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t CALL someone. Cellphones are set to ring when texts come in just as landlines do. I say if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need an immediate response, send an email. What is proper etiquette regarding when people should send texts? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Polite in Katy, Texas Dear Polite: I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think there are hard-andfast rules of etiquette regarding texting â&#x20AC;&#x201C; yet. But common sense would suggest that if people suspect they â&#x20AC;&#x153;mightâ&#x20AC;? disturb someone by texting, then they should refrain. Of course, recipients who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wish to be interrupted can put their cellphones on silent or turn them off. If the texts youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re arguing about are intruding on time the two of you should be concentrating on each other, I see no reason why they shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be responded to the next day.

Themed Friendship Trees make wonderful gifts Chairpersons: Barb Young and Yolanda Moreno The Friendship Tree decorators continue to dazzle us each year with their unique ideas in decorating these small 2-foot and 3-foot trees. Decorators are local businesses, organiza-

tions, or individuals who donate their time and talent to transform these trees from Charlie Brown trees into whimsical beauties. We could not accomplish this event without their dedication and support of Hospice of the Rock River Valley. Their inspiration may

be to honor a loved one by dedicating a tree in their memory or in support of a special cause. Many of these trees have special themes, which makes them a hit with both the young and old at heart, because no two are alike. Their size makes them the perfect

gift or holiday decoration for a tabletop or mantel. The Friendship Trees are part of the silent auction where anyone can bid on them throughout the week from Nov.19-24. Past years have shown that the bidding frenzy really starts on Sunday

afternoon where bidders watch carefully to make sure they aren’t outbid for their favorite tree. So come see the Friendship Tree display and find that perfect one for someone special in your family or someplace special in your home.

Tree of Memories honors loved ones Set the perfect holiday table Chairpersons: Sarah Cebula and Nina Setchell Hospice of the Rock River Valley is committed to an idea that has become an annual tradition. We recognize that the holidays are a time of joy and celebration. They are also a time of reflection. Loved ones can be honored and remembered during the Holiday season with our Tree of Memories. The Tree of Memories, sponsored by Northern Illinois Cancer Treat-

ment Center, is a wonderful way to keep the memory of a loved one alive throughout the holiday season. This year you have the opportunity to purchase a ceramic ornament in memory of or in honor of a loved one. Each ornament placed on the tree reflects caring and loving memories. The name of your loved one will be placed on the ornament and display next to the Tree of Memories during the Festival of Trees to be held Nov. 19-24 at

Woodlawn Arts Academy in Sterling. Ornaments are $10 each. Also, ornaments may be purchased to give as gifts. Ornaments will be available at the information desk during the Festival of Trees at Woodlawn Arts Academy. They may also be purchased at the hospice office. To have a loved one honored/remembered, visit Woodlawn Arts Academy for the 24th Annual Festival of Trees, or call Hospice of the Rock River Valley at 815-288-3673.

Chairpersons: Jodi Woessner and Kathy Hinrichs Need an idea or two on how to set that perfect holiday or party table? Often, we get wrapped up in the busyness of our schedules and the holidays and we don’t always sit down together as a family. We hope our tables inspire that feeling during this holiday season time. The designers of the Table Settings for the Festival of Trees enjoy gathering items, some all year long, that they use

to create these beautiful tables. The tables feature place settings, drink ware, flatware, tablecloths and centerpieces and will be available for bid all week. A sincere thank you to our decorators: Kathy Hinrichs, Jodi Woessner, Candi and Michelle Parks, Nancy Hill, Yolie Moreno, Kathy Rick, Pat Anderson, and Laura Fitzgerald, Apron Strings Antiques. We appreciate your generosity and assistance in making this event possible.

Festival of Trees celebrates 24 years Benefitting patients and families of HRRV Gala dinner to kick off annual festival M ore than 20 years ago a charming idea from a group of volunteers, became a reality and Festival of Trees was conceived as a community event that would benefit Hospice of the Rock River Valley. Now, years later, we are thrilled to present our 24th Festival of Trees celebration at the Woodlawn Arts Academy in Sterling. Festival of Trees has grown to include The Country Store, Entertainment, Jim Behren’s Holiday Designs and Desserts Show, the Gala Evening and Auctions, and a variety of holiday decorated displays – trees, wreaths, table settings and more – none of which could be possible without the generosity of time, talent and

treasure shared by businesses, organizations and individuals living in our communities. The Festival of Trees benefits patients and families of Hospice of the Rock River Valley. As a non-profit organization, who benefits from United Way funding, we rely on community support in order to continue our tradition of quality compassionate care to terminally ill patients and their families. Festival of Trees is our largest fundraiser and community event, and are pleased to once again have as our presenting sponsor, CGH Medical Center. We would also like to thank Woodlawn Arts Academy for hosting the Festival of Trees. Without their generous use of the facility,

and contributions from all of our sponsors and donors this event would not exist. To all, we say thank you. Consider this your invitation to the 24th Festival of Trees. Witness the power of community service, volunteerism, and partnership with Woodlawn Arts Academy and enjoy

an exciting introduction to the 2013 holiday season. To everyone in the Sauk Valley area, on behalf of the staff and board of directors at Hospice of the Rock River Valley, please accept our sincere and simple thank you. Carolyn Spencer, executive director and Karen Voss, marketing director, Hospice of the Rock River Valley

Chairperson: Anne Kenney Dessert Auction Chairperson: Roberta Dillon This year’s Hospice of the Rock River Valley’s Festival of Trees Gala dinner will kick off the 24th annual Festival of Trees.

Velazquez lets her fleet feet do the speaking BY LARRY BRENNAN lbrennan@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 550

Makaley Velazquez is a young woman of few words. But her running ability speaks volumes. The Rock Falls High School sophomore is one of just two Sauk Valley area girls who qualified for the state cross country meet Saturday in Peoria. The other is Amboy freshman Megan Grady. “You talk to her, and she seems mild, but she’s a competitive person,” Rock Falls coach Mark Truesdell said. “I would classify her as a gamer. When the pressure gets on, people will kind of back off, but she won’t.” As a freshman last season, Velazquez helped Rock Falls to a fourth-place finish in Class 1A at state. She finished 69th in a time of 19 minutes, 9 seconds. While disappointed the Rockets were unable to make their fourth straight team trip to state, Velazquez is excited to be heading back to Peoria.

motions were running high for the Oregon football team Oct. 18. It was senior night, and possibly the last home game for 15 seniors listed on the roster. The Hawks, 3-4 at the time, needed to handle Mendota that night, then Rock Falls a week later, to become eligible for the playoffs.

Oregon was coming off a 2-7 season in 2012, which snapped a 6-year playoff appearance streak. The current seniors were part of that, and didn’t want to experience that again. Angst was in the air, but for one Hawk, it was multiplied many times over. For Ryan Miller, a starting defensive tackle and part-timer at offensive guard, Oct. 18 holds a special meaning every year. It was on that date in 2007 that his biological father, Julius Miller, committed suicide.

“When it comes up, it hits me,” Miller said. “When we had our senior night, that was a rough one.” Ryan Miller was in sixth grade when Julius Miller took his own life in Florida, where had been living for 2 years. Julius lived in Dixon before moving to Florida. Ryan’s mother, Jennifer, never married Julius, and married her current husband, Troy Fox, 17 years ago. DATE CONTINUED ON B7

The week the Eastland-Pearl City Wildcatz have been waiting for is finally here … and they’re ready to exorcise some Three Rivers demons. Even back in July, the Wildcatz players realized the Newman Comets would likely be waiting for them at some point in the playoffs. The chance to play them in the second round – and

possibly make up for past secondround losses to the Comets’ conference brethren Morrison Mustangs – seems like it was written in the stars. “We’re jacked out of our minds,” EPC junior safety and return specialist Cody Kluck said. “They say they’re the big Blue Machine, and we say bring them on.” SPECIAL CONTINUED ON B2

Renteria returns to Wrigley as Cubsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; new manager BY MARK GONZALES #HICAGO4RIBUNE

Today

Leaving the visitorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clubhouse after a game a few years ago, Rick Renteria took a few steps outside Wrigley Field and turned to tell a friend, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to be here some day.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; That day has arrived, as Renteria will be named the Cubsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; manager today. The selection of Renteria, 51, crystallized after a search to replace Dale Sveum took more than 5 weeks. The Cubs were unsuccessful in attempting to talk to Joe Girardi, who re-signed with the Yankees for four more seasons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This comes at a time heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ready to relish and embrace the challenge,â&#x20AC;? Padres manager Bud Black said of Renteria, who served as one of his coaches for the last six seasons. Renteria, who is recovering from hip surgery, impressed Cubs officials during multiple interviews in southern California. Renteria was chosen over former major league managers A.J. Hinch, Eric Wedge and Manny Acta, as well as Rays coach Dave Martinez. The Cubs werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allowed an opportunity after the World Series to interview Red Sox bench coach Torey Lovullo, as the Red Sox stood firm in an agreement they had with the Cubs that President Theo Epstein couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take any employees to Chicago from Boston during a 3-year period that started after the 2011 season. A source familiar with both sides said the Red Sox suspected the Cubs went through backdoor channels to lure their thengeneral manager from them, and were adamant about sticking with the 3-year ban. Renteria remained a strong candidate before Lovulloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stock rose with the Red Soxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ascent to winning the World Series. In fact, he interviewed for managerial openings with the Mariners and Tigers.

The Cubs will hire Padres bench coach Rick Renteria (left) as their new manager today. Renteria played five seasons in the Major Leagues, and has served as a coach in the Marlinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and Padresâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; systems since 1998. Renteria, who received a 3-year guaranteed deal, is viewed as a mild-mannered instructor who fits Epsteinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preference for a manager who provides â&#x20AC;&#x153;love before tough love.â&#x20AC;? The Cubs are hopeful Renteria, a bilingual southern California native, can connect with their younger players in whom they have invested heavily. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one reason why Renteriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contract includes 2 option years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatever I gave him, he handled,â&#x20AC;? Black said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He also wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afraid to come to me and say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What about this?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always thought of Rick as a very solid first lieutenant. He knows what is ahead of him. He was a very valued member of our organization for a long time.â&#x20AC;?

SPECIAL CONTINUED FROM B1

Chris Johnson/Shaw Media

EPCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cody Kluck is tackled at the Polo 1-yard line on a punt return during the Wildcatzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Week 6 game against the Marcos. Kluck has returned five punts for touchdowns this year, and had five more return TDs called back because of penalties. They have a lot of weapons, and they run their return game very well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to try and take away their threats, get us some room to move and try to win the field position game. Special teams are a quick way to change the game, the momentum, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have our hands full Saturday.â&#x20AC;? Momentum has been a big factor for the Wildcatz all year long. While theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve blown out most of the teams on their schedule, the closer contests have seen EPC pull away thanks to a big turnover on defense or return on special teams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really been huge for us this year,â&#x20AC;? Kluck said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes, we need kind of a click to get us going, and it seems like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always

coming up with an interception or fumble recovery or kick return to get us rolling. Once we get one, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fired up for more, and we feed off that.â&#x20AC;? Those momentumshifting plays have usually led to some big plays by the EPC offense. Papoccia believes this is the most physical Wildcatz team heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen, and is also wary of the explosiveness heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen on film from the skill position players. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got it all: dynamite backs, a quarterback who throws exceptionally well, and big receivers who go up and get it,â&#x20AC;? Papoccia said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but like any good team, it starts with the line. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a very physical team,

Papoccia impressed with Wildcatz â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go toe-to-toe and see how we both stack up,â&#x20AC;? Kluck continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whoever keeps their hand in the dirt and fights harder will win.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not to say that Kluck and his teammates think things will be easy Saturday at Roscoe Eades Stadium. The Wildcatz know how tough it is to bring down the Comet running backs, and are also impressed with how well Newman runs its schemes on both sides of the ball and plays solid team defense. But as good as both offenses and defenses have been this season, EPC feels it might have an advantage in special teams. Kluck has five punt return touchdowns (and five more called back for penalties), and Donny Groezinger has scored on a kickoff return, a punt return and by returning a blocked punt. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prompted the Comets â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who focus on special teams every week â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to make sure they get plenty of work in on that third phase heading into Saturday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We talk about special teams every week, but even more so with these guys,â&#x20AC;? Newman coach Mike Papoccia said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They have scored a lot, and shortened the field so much because of their special teams, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obvious they really stress that area of the game just like we do.

not afraid to stick their noses in on either side of the ball, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re well-coached and very versatile. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one heck of a good test for us, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for sure, because we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just zero in on one guy and expect to stop them.â&#x20AC;? Wildcatz coach Randy Asche is just as concerned with the Cometsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; physicality and explosiveness. He talked about â&#x20AC;&#x153;extreme effort,â&#x20AC;? and feels his team will need a few breaks and bounces to go their way. But the biggest thing he and his coaches have been stressing this week is consistency. He knows that in order to get over that secondround hump, the Wildcatz canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lose their edge for even a minute. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a daunting task, because they just wear on you and wear on you,â&#x20AC;? Asche said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take plays off, or make mistakes or miss tackles. We have to play at our highest level, because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the level theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re used to playing week in and week out in their conference. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a pretty big deal for us, to take on one of the best programs in the state. Our guys have worked really hard the past few years to be in this position, and they want to play games like this against teams like this. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exciting and fun, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m also nervous; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not getting much sleep this week. We have to bring our best effort and put our best game together, and hope itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good enough Saturday.â&#x20AC;?

Finding right level needed for bidding

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

After a one-level suit opening and a takeout double, if the responder bids a suit at the one-level, it is natural and forcing (and does not deny 10 points). A non-jump new suit at the two-level is weak. An example is the North hand in today’s diagram. Responder bids two diamonds over West’s double. And after East passes, South takes a shot at three no-trump. West leads his fourthhighest heart and East puts up the 10. How should South proceed? When in no-trump, always start by counting your top tricks – your immediate winners. Here South has six: two hearts (given the lead), two diamonds and two clubs. If he is going to get three more

tricks, he needs to establish dummy’s diamonds and get back into the dummy to cash the new winners. What is declarer’s dummy entry?

Right – the heart queen. But that will be an entry only if South can lead twice toward the queen, once to make West take his king and once to win with the queen. So, declarer’s first key play is to win trick one with the heart ace. Then he should cash the diamond ace and continue with the diamond nine. When West plays low twice, South must overtake with dummy’s 10. If East could win the trick, the diamonds would be breaking 3-2 and all would be well. Here, though, when East discards, declarer continues with two more rounds of diamonds. And eventually he will force that dummy entry in hearts to get home. In case you are wondering, if the responder had had, say, 11 high-card points, not five, he would have had to start with a redouble. © 2013 UFS

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sad, because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m used to running with these girls,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be awkward by myself, but it will still be fun and a good experience.â&#x20AC;? Velazquez hopes her â&#x20AC;&#x153;specialâ&#x20AC;? socks take her to a medal-winning performance on the state course at Detweiller Park. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have special Nike socks that I wear,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re good luck. At state, I usually have bright socks. Last year, I wore neon yellow. This year, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to wear neon pink.â&#x20AC;? Velazquez was not pleased with her state performance a year ago, saying she went out too fast and died at the end. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aiming higher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My goal is to be in the top 25,â&#x20AC;? Velazquez said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure if that will happen, so hopefully top 50.â&#x20AC;? She had a time of 20:08 at the Oregon Sectional, but Velazquez is confident sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll perform better at state. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The state course is not really a hilly course,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really hilly, so I feel it will be a faster course. I like the state course. It goes by quick, and my times are good there.â&#x20AC;? Though quiet, Velazquez is becoming more of a leader, according to Truesdell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was tough trying to pull that out of her,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I tried to explain to her that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different ways to lead. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to use your voice. You can use your actions.â&#x20AC;? Her actions have taken her to state 4 straight years, dating back to her seventhand eighth-grade track seasons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I saw her in eighth grade,â&#x20AC;? Truesdell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had her run an 800 with a boy. I had him pace her to see what she would run, and she was the real deal. I knew she was going ot be quality runner.â&#x20AC;?

In the same line as the bright blue nail polish she wore for the event, Velazquez picks a pair of bright socks for every state meet. Last year, she wore neon yellow. This year, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be wearing neon pink. RIGHT: Amboy freshman Megan Grady runs to a ninth-place finish at the Columbus Day Invitational on Oct. 14 at Shady Oaks Country Club in Amboy.

Jets grounded by Hawks Toewsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first-period goal sparks Chicago rout BY CHRIS KUC Chicago Tribune

CHICAGO â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Held off the scoresheet in his return to Winnipeg last week, Jonathan Toews made up for it in the rematch against his hometown team. Flying all night, the captain sparked the Blackhawks with an early goal, and the defending Stanley Cup champs went on to throttle the Jets 4-1 in front of 21,122 fans Wednesday night at the United Center. In addition to Toewsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; goal, Patrick Sharp had a goal and an assist, Patrick Kane and Brandon Pirri also scored, and

NBA | PACERS 97, BULLS 80

Bulls get windy in Indy Players voice frustration after loss to Pacers BY K.C. JOHNSON Chicago Tribune

INDIANAPOLIS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Panic doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen four games into a season. Frustration does. And that was evident in the Bullsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; actions as they trudged off the Bankers Life Fieldhouse court after losing 97-80 to the Pacers on Wednesday night and, later, in their words. Not only do the Bulls keep losing games, dropping to 1-3 after facing the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only unbeaten team, but they keep sounding the same while doing so. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frustrating, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pro athletes,â&#x20AC;? Derrick Rose said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only the beginning of the season. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let it get that frustrating. We know that if we keep working hard like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to catch a rhythm soon.â&#x20AC;? The Pacers displayed their defensive rhythm throughout, holding

And they broke open a twopoint game on Lance Stephensonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3-pointer with 6 minutes, 58 seconds left, outscoring the Bulls 30-11 down the stretch. Paul Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 21 points led five players in double figures for the Pacers, who are 5-0 for the first time as an NBA franchise, and the first time in franchise history since 1971-72 in the old ABA. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They wanted it more than us,â&#x20AC;? Joakim Noah said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They got to every loose ball, every rebound. Just took it away. Disappointing.â&#x20AC;? Indeed, the Pacers enjoyed a 52-40 rebounding edge, and were

by far the aggressor throughout. The Bulls shot just 29.7 percent in the second half, and failed to crack 20 points in either the third or fourth quarters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re inconsistent,â&#x20AC;? coach Tom Thibodeau said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a good quarter, then a bad quarter. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t win in this league like that.â&#x20AC;? Rose sank his first three shots and appeared headed toward his first full breakout game. But foul trouble slowed him first, and then the Pacersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense did. He scored just five points with one field goal in the second half, and sat from the 4:55 mark of the third until 6:16 remained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the end, they put George on me instead of C.J. [Watson], and I guess thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to happen in the fourth quarter,â&#x20AC;? Rose said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Almost every team did it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; double-team or put a bigger guy on me. So that forces me to pass.â&#x20AC;?

Enjoy the benefits of having a fine-tuned intuition and an uncanny ability to broaden your horizons with charm and banter. Romance will get a boost, as well.

up for what you want.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Attend events that will help you reconnect with your past. The opportunity to try something new or to give an old idea a face-lift will prove enlightening.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Control will be necessary. Instead of simply reacting, re-evaluate a situation and consider all the possible consequences as well as the pros and cons of a major decision. Strive for simplicity, moderation and order.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Slow down and take a moment to look before you leap. Impulse will be the enemy, unless it is confined to the privacy of your home. A false sense of security should be discouraged. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Step up and be counted. You will have the ability to make others listen and respond. You can wield power and dominate a situation to suit your concerns and needs.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait until you are forced into a tricky situation. Make decisions that counter what others want you to do. Assert your right to choose by standing

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -State your position forthrightly and with candor. The less you leave untold, the better. You want everyone to have a clear idea of your position. If you and others know where you stand, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll succeed.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Your thirst for knowledge will lead to engaging conversations and research that will help you mastermind some big projects. A supportive individual will point you in the right direction. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Make sure that you have the correct information before you make a move. You are likely to be disillusioned regarding what someone or something is offering you. Get everything in writing. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Show everyone how much fun you can be today. Getting involved in activities that have

a creative or unusual twist will allow you to show off your talents. Follow your heart wherever it may lead. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave room for complaints regarding your job performance. Take care of business before you make plans to party. A different environment will be tempting, but you need to make sure that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conducive to getting things done.

Let your intuition guide you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Work hard and finish everything thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expected of you. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let your productivity suffer because of what someone says or does. Give it your best and stay within your budget.
