City Council makes city administrator hire official BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 529

DIXON – It’s official. Dixon has its first city administrator. David Nord was hired Tuesday night during a special meeting of the Dixon City Council. The council and Mayor Jim Burke voted unanimously to hire him. Just moments after the vote, Burke led Nord in the oath of office. After the meeting, with a handful of residents wait-

ing to meet him, Nord said it was “a great honor” to become Dixon’s first city administrator. “[Dixon] is a David self-contained Nord community, which I really like,” he said. “It’s just that idea of being able to be a part of hopefully bringing the community along and getting a little more recognition for the good things that are going on. I’m really looking

A verbal agreement was reached Oct. 25 and Nord’s contract was placed on file for public review Nov 4. “I really feel great about the team we put together and the process and finding David,” Langloss said after Tuesday’s meeting. “I think he’s a perfect fit for the city. It’s really a win-win for everybody.”

MORRISON – In September, the Whiteside County Board allowed Prophetstown to use the county’s landfill to dispose of asbestos from the rubble of a downtown fire in July. Now, officials are considering whether to drop the asbestos ban permanently. Joel Asbestos has been Horn prohibited since the county set up the landfill in the early 1990s – a way to alleviate neighbors’ concerns. Next week, the county will have public hearings in Morrison and Sterling to get feedback on ending the ban. “The county wants to take a deliberate look at whether we should allow asbestos in general to go forward,” County Administrator Joel Horn said Tuesday. Prophetstown saved significant money by disposing of asbestos at the landfill, which is east of Morrison, rather than going somewhere farther away, he said. Horn said he had heard of no opposition to allowing asbestos at the landfill. Before the fire, he said, the county health department reported that it had heard of instances in which people had improperly disposed of asbestos because of the ban. “That’s what we don’t want,” Horn said. “We want to make it easier for people to dispose of asbestos the proper way, so it doesn’t become a health issue.” ASBESTOS CONTINUED ON A4

DIXON | THE CRUNDWELL AFTERMATH

Prized Crundwell horse euthanized by new owner Good I Will Be sold for $775,000 in 2012 auction BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 529

DIXON – Good I Will Be, one of the prize horses sold last year in the federal auction of former Comptroller Rita Crundwell’s assets, had to be euthanized by its new owner Sunday. The bay stallion successfully underwent surgery for kidney stones Saturday, but never fully woke up from the anesthesia, said manager Stephen Stephens of Dry River Ranch in Weatherford, Texas. The horse started to show signs of discomfort about a week earlier and was taken to the Texas A&M University Veterinary Hospital for treatment, Stephens said. Kidney stones are rare for horses because of

their regulated diet, Stephens said. Good I Will Be was “100 percent” healthy, he said, when purchased by Stephens for Sandra Morgan of Vancouver, British Columbia, who won $35 million in the Canadian lottery in 2011. The horse, which was purchased for $775,000 plus an additional 10 percent buyer’s premium, had already started to perform as a sire for its owners, bringing in at least $100,000 in its first year, Stephens said. “He was probably the up and coming sire of the industry,” he said. “He was the head honcho.” The horse’s offspring had been “dominating” competitions for showhorses, Stephens said.

CONTINUED FROM A1

Nord’s contract runs through May 31, 2015, which means it’s set to expire shortly after the next municipal election. Whether to renew the contract will be one of the first items the new or reelected City Council will face. During the general election in November 2014, residents will vote on whether to adopt the city manager form of government or keep the current commission form. Nord, who served as the village administrator of Cherry Valley for 25 years, will start on the job today. Langloss described leading the hiring committee, serving as a special assistant to the City Council and “professionalizing� aspects of the city government as “an incredible honor.� “But I’m ready to get back to the police depart-

TACLOBAN, Philippines (AP) – Relief operations in this typhoon-devastated region of the Philippines picked up pace Wednesday, but the minimal amounts of water, food and medical supplies reaching the hardesthit areas were causing increasingly desperate survivors to take matters into their own hands. In the first reported deaths as a result of looting, eight people were crushed to death when a wall collapsed as they and thousands of others stormed a rice warehouse on Leyte Island, the worst-hit region by Friday’s storm, said National Food Authority spokesman Rex Estoperez. The looters in Alangalang municipality Tuesday carted away up to 100,000 sacks of rice, he said.

ment,� he said. “There are a lot of challenges there. That’s where my heart is and I can’t wait to get my focus 100 percent back to being the police chief.�

Among Nord’s first tasks as city administrator will be to meet with Langloss to start getting familiar with the position and the city, Burke said. “It’ll probably take him

several weeks or months, really, to get the lay of everything and who’s who and all the various responsibilities,� Burke said. “But he seems to be up for the task.�

Since the storm, people have broken into homes, malls and garages, where they have stripped the shelves of food, water and other goods. Authorities have struggled to stop the looting. There have been unconfirmed reports of armed gangs involved in some instances. The incident shows the urgency in getting food and water distributed to the disaster zone. Aviation authorities said two more airports in the region had reopened, allowing for more aid flights. U.S. Brig Gen. Paul Kennedy said that later Wednesday his troops

would install equipment at Tacloban airport to allow planes to land at night. Tacloban city was almost completely destroyed in Friday’s typhoon and has become the main relief hub. “You are not just going to see Marines and a few planes and some helicopters,� Kennedy said. “You will see the entire Pacific Command respond to this crisis.� A Norwegian ship carrying supplies left from

Manila, while an Australian air force transport plane took off from Canberra carrying a medical team. British and American navy vessels are also en route to the region. The damaged airport on Tacloban, a coastal city of 220,000, houses makeshift clinics and thousands of people looking for a flight out. A doctor here said supplies of antibiotics and anesthetics arrived Tuesday for the first time.

Wojdylo: The money is in the bank HORSE

CONTINUED FROM A1

Good I Will Be was one of more than 400 horses seized from Crundwell’s estate and sold by the U.S. Marshals Service, said Jason Wojdylo, chief inspector of the Marshals Asset Forfeiture Division. If the horse had died before the auction in 2012, like eight of the horses did, the city wouldn’t have the more than $800,000 from its sale, Wojdylo said, included in the now nearly $9.2 million “restoration.� The horse’s death won’t affect the money the city expects to

receive, he added. “It will in no way impact that,� Wojdylo said. “With the sale of this particular horse, the funds were transferred to the marshals already. The money is in the bank.� Wojdylo expects the estimated $9.2 million to be transferred from the U.S. Marshals to the clerk of the U.S. District Court’s Northern District of Illinois within 30 days. The clerk’s office will then transfer the money to the city. The U.S. Marshals made selling the horses, located on 22 farms in 13 states, a priority because as live animals they were a “high risk asset,� Wojdylo said, adding that

the marshals had never had to sell so many animals. “It was unprecedented,� he said. “It had never occurred in the U.S. Marshals history.� The majority of the horses were sold in an online auction, in order to reduce the cost and risk of transferring them to Dixon for the live auction, Wojdylo said. Crundwell is serving a sentence of 19 years, 7 months in a federal prison in Waseca, Minn., after pleading guilty to stealing nearly $54 million in city funds over two decades. She must serve at least 85 percent – about 16 1/2 years. Crundwell’s release date has been set for March 5, 2030.

TWO-VEHICLE CRASH IN STERLING

Crash victim had attended wedding Sheriff: Alcohol might have been involved BY VINDE WELLS vwells@shawmedia.com Shaw News Service

POLO – A New Mexico woman who died in a crash near Polo on Saturday was in town for a relative’s wedding. Melanie R. Wagner, 21, of Albuquerque, N.M., was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash on Union Road near its intersection with Canada Road, about 2 miles north of Polo. Wagner was a frontseat passenger in a car driven by her cousin, Jason W. Wagner, 23, Polo, according to a news release issued Tuesday by Ogle County Sheriff Michael Harn. She was thrown from the car. According to the release, the car was headed south in the 600 block of Union Road when the driver lost control, left the road, and hit a utility pole shortly after 10 p.m. Harn said alcohol

might have been a factor in the crash. The driver was taken by Dixon City ambulance to KSB Hospital in Dixon, and later transferred to a Rockford hospital before being taken to a Peoria hospital for treatment of serious injuries. A rear-seat passenger, Jay R. Wagner, 18, of Albuquerque, the woman’s brother, was taken by ambulance to KSB for treatment of minor injuries. The three had attended a wedding reception for Jason’s father, Greg Wagner of Polo, before the crash occurred. The crash remains under investigation, the sheriff said. In 2010, Wagner graduated from an Albuquerque high school. She had planned to attend paramedic school next year. She was a server at a Cracker Barrel restaurant in Albuquerque.

Blacksmith classes offered in old barn Course combines age-old techniques, modern equipment BY JANE LETHLEAN The (Freeport) Journal-Standard

FREEPORT (AP) – Since 2008, Wes Robinson of Freeport has taken people back in time in an old barn transformed into a blacksmith shop. This is not a shop used to make horseshoes, but works of art – from garden trowels to hanging ornamental pieces and jewelry. Robinson joined forces with retired art teacher Eric Donaldson to hold classes in artistic blacksmithing at the barn on Henderson Road east of Freeport. Fires from the stoves and the kiln heat the place up on cool fall days. “The blacksmithing course is designed to introduce new smiths to the exciting world of artistic blacksmithing,� Robinson said. “We combine ages-old, traditional techniques with both modern and time-honored equipment. The prospective student may hope to create some basic projects with their own individual flair.� Students in the class can explore projects

such as coat hooks with decorative leaf elements, garden trowels with a twist and fireplace equipment. “Students will get an idea of how to build or create functional objects with an artistic bent to them,� he added. Donaldson, who does a lot of the teaching for the classes, is a member of the Upper Midwest Blacksmith Association and the Artistic Blacksmith Association of North America. He’s practiced blacksmithing techniques for the past 12 years, getting a Master’s of Fine Arts degree in jewelry and metal working from Northern Illinois University. “I basically attended a workshop in blacksmith techniques and fell in love with the art,� Donaldson said. “This is not the type of blacksmithing from back in the day, it’s art. But the techniques remain the same.� Robinson said his love for the art form is a tribute to his father and grandfather, who used to forge in a barn. He said he remembers a time when anything could be fixed or restored through blacksmithing.

Raising funds for riverfront T

he Dixon Riverfront Commission met Tuesday night in Dixon, and among the topics expected to be discussed were two revenue sources and a draft of a grant. I couldn’t cover the meeting, because it was going on at the same time the Dixon City Council was hiring David Nord as the first city administrator. But I talked to Riverfront Commission Chairman Larry Reed before the meeting. He was set to announce that another round of selling engraved bricks – also known as pavers – along the riverfront was going to begin. The bricks, depending on size, go for $250, $275 and $325. Each size has a different number of lines of text and characters per line. They can be ordered now through May 16, with nearly 80 percent of the payment going directly to the Riverfront Commission, for maintenance and repairs to equipment, Reed said. The rest of the price, he said, goes to the cost of having the bricks engraved. As of Tuesday, $68,458 worth of bricks had been sold during the six pre-

TV pitchman found guilty, sent to jail CHICAGO (AP) – Jurors deliberated for less than an hour Tuesday before finding Kevin Trudeau guilty of criminal contempt in weeklong trial during which prosecutors accused the TV pitchman of lying in infomercials to boost sales of his diet book. In a rare move, immediately after the verdict Judge Ronald Guzman revoked the 50-year-old’s bail and ordered marshals to take him into custody. White-collar defendants are typically allowed to remain free as they await sentencing. As the federal judge read out the verdict to a crowded courtroom in Chicago earlier Tuesday, Trudeau sat on the edge of his seat – but otherwise showed little emotion. One of his supporters wept as she left the courtroom minutes later.

Same-sex marriage fallout? Voters to render their judgment in 2014 election Going into last week’s final round of the veto session, there were no guarantees of a vote on same-sex marriage. The House sponsor, state Rep. Greg Harris, D-Chicago, made some cryptic comments about things looking better for the bill, but would not say how many votes he had lined up or whether he would call the bill for a vote. Obviously, he did, and it was approved. N a r r o w l y , State Rep. but it was Sam Yingling approved.

were duplicates of other bills that he had signed, so there was no reason for lawmakers to try to override the governor. That leaves two total vetoes. Yes, lawmakers upheld Quinn’s veto of a bill that cut the number of free days offered by museums. However, they didn’t even try to override him on his veto of a bill that raised the floor on contracts that had to be put out to bid by Chicago transit agencies. Given all of the lousy public relations they’ve had over the summer, it was probably wise to steer clear of that. Quinn used his amendatory veto powers on two other bills, but probably better not to mention them. One was concealed carry, and lawmakers pretty much handed Quinn his lunch on that one last summer. That brings the average down a little bit.

Jerry Bryant: “According to Ms. Warren’s statistics, four out of the five recent victims were also age 21 years and under, which leads one to speculate that inexperience may be a contributing factor. Would the author condone more restrictions on younger riders? How about mandatory helmet use by bicyclists, roofers, or anyone engaged in behavior involving risk, including the operation of automobiles. Obviously, helmets, or any other type of body armor, give additional, personal protection. The freedom of choice lies in weighing these protections against their inconvenience.� Steven Humphrey: “It’s absurd for car drivers to get seatbelt tickets if motorcyclists still want to continue the ‘personal choice’ argument for not being mandated to wear helmets. I’d prefer to not have to pay for seatbelt tickets as a personal choice rather than being mandated to wear it, and fined. I suppose the most unsafe modes of transportation should continue to be rewarded with the option of personal choice, while the rest of us have to be told what to do to better ensure our transportation safety. Only those nostalgic of a ‘simpler’ time would continue to advocate for personal choice when it comes to wearing a motorcycle helmet.� Ed Croft: “We’ve already HAD a helmet law. I, along with others, fought for years to get rid of it. But I agree with Humphrey that it’s absurd that people get seatbelt tickets. It should be left up to the person whether they want to wear them or not. Insurance companies are the only ones that care

enough to try to change laws to regulate our lives. What won’t they try next?� John Flowers: “A helmet, or even a suit of armor, won’t protect a motorcyclist from a distracted driver. As long as drivers who kill cyclists remain unpunished, these accidents will continue.� David Plechaty: “Private health insurance companies that issue individual policies try to avoid insuring motorcyclists at all. I’ve been there. I am not in favor of seatbelt laws or helmet laws. I must note I always wear a seatbelt, but that is my choice.� Laurence Brandon Sr.: “I think it is NOT the goal of government to protect every person as much as the goal of the government is to remove personal choice (freedom to choose).� Ron Erickson: “I do ride, and I can’t imagine riding without a helmet. All one has to do is read how many times a life is saved from wearing one to get the drift! I also wear a lime green, reflective coat. I want you to see me! I have always wondered why someone buys a black bike, puts on a black jacket, rides on a black road, and then wonders why no one saw them!� John Scott: “I think helmet laws for minors would be good. Adults, I have more questions about. I think as [an] adult, you are able to decide for yourself your own safety needs. If you prefer to take risks, then I guess that’s your choice. As a motorcycle rider, I am concerned that people don’t pay attention to motorcycles while driving. Wearing a helmet is simply my way of trying to protect myself from others.

ELECTION 2014 | ILLINOIS GOVERNOR

Vallas initially taken aback by choice Running mate says he believes Quinn wants ‘strongest team possible’ CHICAGO (AP) – Gov. Pat Quinn’s selection of former Chicago schools CEO Paul Vallas to be his 2014 running mate took many people by surprise – including Vallas himself. Vallas said Tuesday he was initially taken aback that Quinn would choose to be lieutenant governor someone who has held as many high-profile and, at times, controversial positions. At the same time, Vallas said, the choice wasn’t surprising because he believes the Chicago Democrat “wants to assemble the strongest team possible.� Vallas, who sought the Democratic nomina-

tion for Illinois governor in 2002 and ran schools in Philadelphia in New Orleans, also said he won’t have any trouble taking a backseat to his new boss. “I have no problem playing second fiddle or whatever instrument in the orchestra Pat wants me to play, because I believe in Pat,� he said. Tuesday’s event was the first joint public appearance for Quinn and Vallas since the governor announced his pick last week. The selection drew praise but also criticism on several fronts. Some black leaders were dis-

appointed Quinn didn’t select one of the African Americans whose names had circulated as potential picks. Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis said the choice “takes us in the wrong direction for public education in Chicago and Illinois,� adding that when Vallas led Chicago schools he expanded charter schools and standardized testing. And Vallas’ critics in Bridgeport, Conn., where he’s currently superintendent, noted voters there were so disillusioned with his reform efforts they recently elected a slate of candidates that stacked

the school board with members who want Vallas gone. Quinn fielded those questions Tuesday, calling Vallas “a man who takes on some of the toughest challenges in America� and saying those challenges – as they have in Connecticut –often ruffle feathers. The governor also called Lewis a friend and said he and Vallas already have talked about how to improve schools and increase investment in early childhood education and college scholarships. And he said he has a diverse cabinet and works “with everyone across Illinois.�

One World Trade Center climbs Daylong shopping to top of list of tallest buildings frenzy on holiday? Decision on needle knocks Chicago tower from top spot NEW YORK (AP) – They set out to build the tallest skyscraper in the world – a giant that would rise a symbolic 1,776 feet from the ashes of ground zero. Those aspirations of global supremacy fell by the wayside long ago, but New York won a consolation prize Tuesday when an international architectural panel said it would recognize One World Trade Center as the tallest skyscraper in the United States. The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, considered a world authority on supersized skyscrapers, announced its decision at simultaneous news conferences in New York and Chicago, home to the 1,451-foot Willis Tower, which is being dethroned as the nation’s tallest building. Measuring the height of a building would seem to be a simple thing, but in the case of the new World Trade Center tower it is complicated by the 408-foot-tall needle atop the skyscraper’s roof. The council’s verdict rested on a conclusion that the needle should be counted as part of the building’s total height. Without it, the tower would be just 1,368 feet tall, the same height as the original World Trade Center. That would make it smaller than not only the Willis, but also a 1,397-foot apartment

The beacon and spire of 1 World Trade Center are lit up, as seen from The Heights neighborhood of Jersey City, N.J. The new World Trade Center tower in New York knocked Chicago’s Willis Tower off its pedestal as the nation’s tallest building when an international panel of architects announced Tuesday that the needle atop the skyscraper can be counted when measuring the structure’s height. building being built a short subway ride away near Central Park. Speaking at his office in New York, council chairman Timothy Johnson, an architect at the global design firm NBBJ, said the decision by the

25-member height committee had more “tense moments� than usual, given the skyscraper’s importance as a patriotic symbol. “I was here on 9/11. I saw the buildings come down,� he said.

Over the past few months, the council had hinted that it might be open to changing its standards for measuring ultra-tall buildings, given a trend toward developers adding “vanity height� to towers with huge, decorative spires. But the council also has a history of disallowing antennas in height calculations. The Empire State Building’s landmark 204foot needle isn’t counted in its height measurement. Neither are the two TV antennas atop the Willis Tower, which had been the country’s tallest building since it was completed – and named the Sears Tower – in 1974. But in the end, there was unanimity on the committee that One World Trade Center’s reach for 1,776 feet – a number that echoes the founding year of the United States – was an artistic architectural expression. “This was a quest to put something meaningful and symbolic on that site because of the horrible history of what happened on that site,� said Antony Wood, the council’s executive director. Tourists photographing the skyscraper Tuesday mostly agreed that when it comes to height measurements, this spire should count. “For any other building, no. But for this one, yes,� said Cary Bass, of Lake Mary, Fla., as he waited to enter the National Sept. 11 Memorial at the new skyscraper’s feet. “Those people deserve it,� he said, referring to the attack victims.

Retailers continue to push hours earlier than previous years NEW YORK (AP) – Last Thanksgiving Day, Kimberly Mudge Via’s mother, sister and nieces left in the middle of their meals to head for the mall. Now, Via says she’ll never host Thanksgiving dinner for her relatives again. “They barely finished,� says the 28-year-old who lives in Boone, N.C. “They thanked me and left their plates on the counter.� That scene could become more common in homes across the country. Black Friday shopping, the annual rite of passage on the day after Thanksgiving, continues to creep further into the holiday as more stores open their doors a day early. It’s a break with tradition. Black Friday, which typically is the year’s biggest shopping day, for a decade has been considered the official start to the busy holiday buying

season. Stores open in the wee hours of the morning with special deals called doorbusters and stay open late into the evening. Meanwhile, Thanksgiving and Christmas remained the only two days a year that stores were closed. Now Thanksgiving is slowly becoming just another shopping day. Over the past few years, major retailers, including Target and Toys R Us, slowly have pushed opening times into Thanksgiving night to one-up each other and compete for holiday dollars. Some initially resisted, saying that they wanted their employees to be able to spend time with their families. This year, more than a dozen major retailers are opening on Thanksgiving, including a handful like Macy’s, J.C. Penney and Staples that are doing it for the first time. The Gap, which operates its Old Navy, Gap and Banana Republic, is opening half of its stores in Thanksgiving morning.

TRANSPORTATION

Government reaches agreement to allow major airline merger DALLAS (AP) – American Airlines and US Airways reached a deal with the government that lets the two form the world’s biggest airline and opens up more room at key U.S. airports for low-cost carriers. The deal announced Tuesday – if approved by a federal judge – would end a fight with the U.S. Justice Department and head off a courtroom showdown later this month. It preserves hub airports in Phoenix, Philadelphia, Charlotte and four other cities for at least three years. And it caps a series of

mergers that have already eliminated four big U.S. airlines and stoked fear about higher travel prices. For American, the nation’s third-biggest airline, the deal lets parent AMR Corp. exit bankruptcy protection, repay creditors and reward shareholders. At US Airways, the No. 5 U.S. carrier, shareholders will own 28 percent of the new company, employees stand to get more pay, and top executives will realize their dreams of running an airline even bigger than United or Delta.

Expressing gratitude never goes out of style Dear Abby: With the holidays approaching, a reminder is in order. People: Don’t forget those thank-you notes! I don’t mean an email, but a REAL, honest-togosh thank-you note sent through the mail with postage. My mother always told me that a gift is not truly yours until a proper thank-you has been sent. She said it “completed the transfer.� I was not allowed to play with the item or use it until that note was written. This is especially true for young people today, who seemingly were not taught this in school or by their parents. Very young children can draw

dearABBY Abigail Van Buren’s (Jeanne Phillips) column appears during the week through Universal Press Syndicate.

a picture, and the parent can add a line to say it was drawn to express thanks. As the child matures, he/she can use his/her own words of gratitude. I can’t tell you how many parents comment on the absence of this display of etiquette.

Good manners are never out of date. They are noticed and appreciated. From time to time I have seen you mention your booklet on “How to Write Letters.� If it includes a section on thank-you notes, I’m sure it would be helpful to a lot of people in the next two months. – Elinor in Surprise, Ariz. Dear Elinor: The booklet does. Not a day goes by that I don’t receive letters and emails from readers who are upset enough to write because they haven’t received a thank-you note for a birthday, graduation, wedding or holiday gift

they sent. Some of the writers say they are so hurt and offended that they will stop giving gifts because they were left hanging, wondering if their gift was ever received. The problem may be that many parents no longer insist their children practice this courtesy, so the kids never learn how to do it. Chief among the reasons that thank-you notes aren’t sent is that many people don’t know what to say. They think the note has to be a long, flowery composition when, in fact, short and to the point is more effective. Keeping a notepad handy when opening gifts

and immediately taking a moment to jot down the first thought that comes to mind is helpful. (Example: Do you like the color? The style? Is it something you had been looking for and couldn’t find? Is it a special homemade treat? Mmmm.) WRITE IT DOWN. While letter-writing or even emailing may seem like a chore, there are times when a handwritten note is the most appropriate means of communicating one’s thoughts. My booklet contains sample letters for almost any occasion. It can be ordered by sending your name and mailing address, plus check or money order for $7 (U.S.

funds), to Dear Abby – Letters Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. Inside you will find many samples that can be used as patterns from which to write your own. For anyone who has ever wondered where to begin when writing a note of thanks, offering warm congratulations, condolences, composing a love letter or the opposite – announcing a broken engagement or a decision to divorce – “How to Write Letters� is a handy guide for people who put off writing because they don’t know what to say.

Shirley Rankin of Lexington, Ky., said she has used this rice casserole recipe since the early 1970s.

Unique accompaniments for your holiday ham or turkey BY SHARON THOMPSON MCT News Service

T

he latest “Flavors of Kentucky Holiday Cookbook� is filled with great recipes from readers of the Lexington Herald-Leader. Because many of us will have turkey or ham at our holiday dinners, we made a last-minute appeal for sides, and we got plenty. You now have lots of ideas for what to serve with the holiday entree.

Iced nuts “I make this every Christmas season. This

recipe was given to me by a wonderful, longtime friend, the late Barbara Ann Popyach.� –Patti Lewis Isaacs, Lexington, Ky. 1½ cups almonds, pecans and walnuts, mixed ½ cup granulated sugar 2 tablespoons butter or margarine ½ teaspoon vanilla Line a cookie sheet with foil and butter foil lightly. Set aside. In an 8- or 9-inch cast iron skillet, cook nuts, sugar and butter over medium heat, stirring

carefully and constantly, until sugar has melted and turned a rich brown, about 8 or 9 minutes. Remove from heat and quickly mix in vanilla. Spread mixture on foil-lined cookie sheet. Cool. Break into small clusters and store in sealed containers. Makes about 2 cups. The next recipe also is from Patti Lewis Isaacs.

Pumpkin dip 2 cups confectioners sugar 1 can (16 ounces) pure pumpkin 1 package (8 ounces)

Better health doesn’t come without hard work H ave you ever heard the expression “anything worth having is worth working for�? A lot of people say they would like to lose some weight, eat healthier, get some exercise, but saying you want to do it and actually committing to do the work required are two different things. Think of the things in your life that you have worked hardest for and are most proud of. It may be your education, your career, or your children. All of them required some effort, and I will bet that it wasn’t always an easy road. You probably dealt with pain, confusion, and setbacks along the way, but you were able to accomplish what you wanted to do. You can do the same with your

AGRICULTURE & ETHANOL

Prairies vanish in the push for green energy Policy encourages practice that might speed warming ROSCOE, S.D. (AP) – Robert Malsam nearly went broke in the 1980s when corn was cheap. So now that prices are high and he can finally make a profit, he’s not about to apologize for ripping up prairieland to plant corn. Across the Dakotas and Nebraska, more than 1 million acres of the Great Plains are giving way to corn fields as farmers transform the wild expanse that once served as the backdrop for American pioneers. This expansion of the Corn Belt is fueled in part by America’s green energy policy, which requires oil companies to blend billions of gallons of corn ethanol into their gasoline. Ethanol has become the No. 1 use for corn in America, helping keep prices high. “It’s not hard to do the math there as to what’s profitable to have,” Malsam said. “I think an ethanol plant is a farmer’s friend.” What the green-energy program has made profitable, however, is far from green. A policy intended to reduce global warming is encouraging a farming practice that actually could worsen it. That’s because plowing into untouched grassland releases carbon dioxide that has been naturally locked in the soil. It also increases erosion and requires farmers to use fertilizers and other industrial chemicals. In turn, that destroys native plants and wipes out wildlife habitats. It appeared so damaging that scientists warned that America’s corn-forethanol policy would fail as an anti-global warming strategy if too many farmers plowed over virgin land. The Obama administration argued that would not happen. But the administration didn’t set up a way to monitor whether it actually happened.

A combine works its way through one of Robert Malsam’s fields near Roscoe, S.D. Malsam nearly went broke in the 1980s when corn was cheap. So now that prices are high and he can finally make a profit, he’s not about to apologize for ripping up prairieland to plant corn. It did. More than 1.2 million acres of grassland have been lost since the federal government required that gasoline be blended with increasing amounts of ethanol, an Associated Press analysis of satellite data found. Plots that were wild grass or pastureland seven years ago are now corn and soybean fields. That’s in addition to the 5 million acres of farmland that had been aside for conservation – more than Yellowstone, Everglades and Yosemite National Parks combined – that have vanished since Obama took office. In South Dakota, more than 370,000 acres of grassland have been uprooted and farmed from since 2006. In Edmunds County, a rural community about two hours north of the capital, Pierre, at

least 42,000 acres of grassland have become cropland – one of the largest turnovers in the region. Malsam runs a 13-square-mile family farm there. He grows corn, soybeans and wheat, then rents out his grassland for grazing. Each year, the family converts another 160 acres from grass to cropland. Chemicals kill the grass. Machines remove the rocks. Then tractors plow it three times to break up the sod and prepare it for planting. Scattered among fields of 7-foot tall corn and thighhigh soybeans, some stretches of grassland still exist. Cattle munch on some grass. And “prairie potholes” – natural ponds ranging from small pools to larger lakes – support a smattering of ducks, geese, pelicans and herons.

Keep calm and roll on Captains urge newbies to relax, enjoy sport BY CHRISTOPHER HEIMERMAN cheimerman@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, Ext. 552

Make Joel Spangler laugh. You’ll like him when he’s laughing. Overnight, the 5-foot-9, 203pound Dixon junior transformed from a hulking lineman bent on smashing holes for running backs to a jovial zen master Alex T. Paschal/apaschal@saukvalley.com for the Dukes’ bowling team. “Basically, it’s the last football Dixon juniors Lucas Bonnette (left) and Joel Spangler have their work cut out for them. They’re the captains of a team that game, then Monday I’m right returns only three bowlers with varsity experience and hopes into bowling practice,” Spangler said. “I have no break.” to make state for a third consecutive year.

four freshmen in the program having never so much as rolled a bowling ball before this season, the mission statement is simple: “Take your time...” Bonnette said. “Relax and have fun, you know what I mean?” Spangler added. Six years ago, Bonnette – who took up bowling as a “little chitlin,” in his words – enlisted his good buddy Spangler to fill in his fourth spot for a Saturday morning junior league.

Job No. 1: Protect McCown

T

here is good news and bad news for the Bears in their matchup with the Baltimore Ravens, and it’s a little tricky figuring out which will override the other. The Ravens will bring one of the NFL’s worst offenses to Soldier Field on Sunday. They struggle on the ground and through the air, but particularly with the running game. That could offer some tonic to a Bears defense that is one of the worst in the league, particularly against the run. On the flip side is the reality that the defending Super Bowlchampion Ravens still are one of the best defenses in the NFL. And, in only his second start of the season, Josh McCown will face the best pass rush the Bears have seen so far this year. ARKUSH CONTINUED ON B4

Sterling’s Charli Wike has at least one more shot at her cousin Emily’s school record in the breaststroke. She’ll take a crack at it in the United Township Sectional on Saturday in East Moline, where she also hopes to qualify for the state meet.

The bid for four

Charli Wike has been chasing her cousin for quite some time now. Wike, a senior at Sterling High School, hopes to catch cousin Emily Wike’s 100-yard breaststroke school record set back in 2006. Emily’s record is 1 minute, 5.99 seconds. Charli’s best time is the 1:06.80 she turned in when she placed 21st at state last season. “I told her to make it easy on us and just do it this weekend, so we don’t have to worry about it at state,” Sterling coach Jamie Rodriguez said.

(Wike’s previous state qualifications)

Junior: 100 breaststroke and 200 IM Sophomore: 400 freestyle relay Freshman: 100 breaststroke, 200 medley relay and 400 free relay Charli hopes to have two meets remaining in her high school career. Saturday is the United Township Sectional, where she will try to qualify for her fourth state meet, which will be Nov. 22-23 at New Trier High School in Winnetka. Wike began her swimming career at the age of 3 or 4. “I loved beating the boys at that age,” she said. “You get a little older, and they beat you by a long shot.”

Not many beat Wike in the breaststroke. She’s lost just once this season. It was only natural that Wike be a standout swimmer, like cousin Emily and Emily’s brother James, who competed in the U.S. Olympic Trials in both 2004 and 2008. “It was a given that I would be a swimmer,” Charli said. “My aunt Maggie started the Stingrays [youth swimming program]. My mom helped. They stuck me in the water

and said, ‘You’re going to be like the rest of your family. “I guess it turned out as a good thing. I guess it was meant to be for me in this sport. I’m really glad that I grew up in this sport.” Wike will have to up her game to advance to state again in the breaststroke, which she also did as a freshman. Her times have consistently been in the 1:10 range this season. The state-qualifying time is 1:07.97. “I feel like this year I’ve trained the hardest I ever have,” said Wike, who plans on swimming in college at either the NCAA Division-I or -II level.

Never Fathomed this Low

E

ven by NFL standards, the bash Aldon Smith threw last year at his mountain home in California was a wild one. By the time the party ended, two people had been shot and the San Francisco 49ers linebacker had been stabbed. No one was shot in the locker room of the Miami Dolphins, though there were threats of murder and mayhem that weren’t actually carried out. The way Richie Incognito talked was so frightening to teammate Jonathan Martin that he quit his job and left town on the first plane he could find. That the NFL can be a violent place is no secret. The league has prospered greatly by glorifying it between the lines on Sunday, even as evidence mounts that players risk long-term damage to their health and their brains every time they take the field. It’s a tough place to make a living because only the tough survive to play. Martin was tough enough to be trusted to open holes and block 300-pounders intent on doing damage to his quarterback, but apparently not tough enough to handle the abuse that Incognito threw his way. Listen to Incognito defend himself, and you have to wonder what world he lives in. In a society where the types of things he says are not tolerated, how can there be a place where they are encouraged? “All this stuff coming out, it speaks to the culture of our locker room, it speaks to culture of our closeness, it speaks to the culture of our brotherhood,� Incognito said in a weekend interview with Fox Sports. OK, we get it. They live in a different world, where the rules of normal society don’t always apply. Those who don’t play the game simply don’t understand. It’s utter nonsense, of course. The locker room mentality of having your teammate’s back is all well and good, but how that translates into racial slurs or texts about killing family members is incomprehensible. Athletes in other sports don’t take it to those levels.

and the Wolverines hit 12 of their 19 3-point shots before halftime in breezing to an easy win at home. LeVert finished with 24 points, going 6 of 7 from long distance. Nik Stauskas added 23 points; he was 5 of 6 from 3-point range. Both sophomores set career highs in scoring as Michigan led 59-23 at halftime.

Captains say accuracy is key to success CALM

CONTINUED FROM B1

Spangler says he got “coached up over the years.â€? Thus, he understands his role as not just a leader on the scorecard, but also in bringing a young team along. The top priority is instilling the love of the game that he picked up immediately that Saturday morning in fifth grade. “I have so much fun out here,â€? Spangler said. “There’s so much family and bonding. I have really good friends I wouldn’t have met, if it wasn’t for bowling.â€? He didn’t exactly come out swinging. “I was really bad,â€? Spangler said. “Shhh‌no one needs to know,â€? Bonnette said. Both captains point to accuracy as the biggest area that they’ve improved. Third-year Dukes coach Allen Wickert called Spangler his “MVPâ€? last season, because of his penchant for stepping up during team tournaments and delivering. But he was more often than not the odd man out for dual meets, and only threw one game in the postseason, a 157 at the state meet. This year, Wickert expects Spangler to be a rock for his teammates. “He’s going to be a guy we lean on this year, and he knows it,â€? Wickert said. Wickert admits it’s a lot of honing newbies’ technique so that they can relax and trust their muscle memory. “It’s basically starting from scratch, and I always tell the guys that – whether you’re just starting out or a veteran bowler – there’s 100 things that have to go right before you even hit the foul line, for you to throw a good shot,â€? Wicker said. And a lot of bowling success begins between the ears. “You’ve got these guys who are trying their best, and they need to relax,â€? Wickert said. “If you’re too tense, you’re not going to bowl well. That’s why Joel comes into play. Crack a joke. Break the tension. That’s what you need.â€?

Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco (5) is one of the NFL’s highest-paid players, but is the 25th-rated passer this season.

Flacco ranks among worst passers in NFL ARKUSH CONTINUED FROM B1 That is especially unsettling realizing the Bears’ offensive line probably had its worst outing of the season Sunday against the Lions. Joe Flacco is among the NFL’s wealthiest players after signing a new contract following the Ravens’ Super Bowl win. He also is one of the least productive quarterbacks in the game with a 77.3 passer rating, 25th in the NFL behind such stalwarts as Mike Glennon and Christian Ponder. Flacco’s managed only 6.7 yards per pass, and his 12 touchdown passes are offset by 11 interceptions. Part of his problem throwing the ball may be caused by the fact that the Ravens are only 30th in the NFL rushing the football, and dead last in average gain per rush. That’s hard to believe of a club with Ray Rice as its feature back, but he has only 115 carries through nine games for 289 yards – a 2.5 average. Bernard Pierce was supposed to be a great compliment to Rice this season, but he’s averaged only 2.5 yards a pop on 93 carries.

The suspicion the Ravens would miss Aquan Boldin is borne out in No. 1 receiver Torrey Smith’s numbers. While he’s caught 41 passes for 753 yards, an outstanding 18.4 average, Smith’s been targeted 84 times. No. 1 receivers who convert less than half their targets don’t stay No. 1s for long. Perhaps the Ravens’ biggest problem has been the offensive line, which is puzzling since it started the season with four starters off the Super Bowl team and top backup Gino Gradkowski stepping in at center for the retired Matt Birk. The line has been so bad that the Ravens dealt for Eugene Monroe from Jacksonville before the trade deadline, then dealt left tackle Bryant McKinnie to the Dolphins. A big matchup to watch is John Harbaugh, one of the most successful coaches in the history of the NFL through his first five seasons, and the rookie for the Bears, Marc Trestman.

David Bird from England has written more than 100 bridge books. He specializes in humor, particularly about the monks of St. Titus. But now he has published a second book about the staff and pupils of Cholmeley School, “The Headmaster, the Matron and the Scissors Coup” (Weidenfeld & Nicolson). Mixed in with the humorous stories are instructive deals, many sent to Bird by Tim Bourke from Australia. In this deal from the book, how should the play and defense go in four spades? West leads the heart ace and continues with the heart king. East’s weak two-heart opening would not please a purist, because it has two first-round controls. But now-

adays, everyone pre-empts with the faintest excuse, and here East was hoping he might shut out the spade suit. However, South jumped to four spades, the contract

he hoped he could make. West led the heart ace and continued with the heart king. South, the Headmaster, ruffed, cashed the spade ace, and led the spade queen. West, the Matron, won with her king and paused. Her partner had discarded the club two and club five, discouraging in that suit. So West shifted to a diamond. East won with his ace and led another heart, which promoted West’s spade 10 to the setting trick. East spotted how the contract could have been made. At trick two, South should have discarded his diamond king, cutting the communications between the defenders – a textbook Scissors Coup. And now you know the deal that begat the title of the book. © 2013 UFS
