ROCK FALLS – Whiteside County is within striking distance of approving a 1 percent sales tax to fund public school facilities. Or at least that’s the way officials see it. The question has gone before voters three times, gaining support each time – 42 percent in November 2008, 45 percent in April 2009, and 46 percent this past April. The tax has fared much worse elsewhere. In April, only a quarter of Lee County voters and a third of Ogle County voters backed it. Now, Whiteside County’s school boards are considering whether to put the measure on the March 18 ballot. On Wednesday, the boards for at least four districts – Sterling, Rock Falls High School, Montmorency and East Coloma-Nelson – are expected to vote on a new referendum. Alex Moore, principal of Montmorency School, said his district’s officials are recommending the 1 percent tax for the March ballot. Its passage, he said, would allow the district to reduce property taxes. SALES TAX CONTINUED ON A4

“I thought it was the end for us,� said Beau, 24, a reporter with a Peoria TV station. “I thought we were going to die.� A moment later, the twister left. The floor remained, but the ceiling was gone. “It got super calm,� Alyssa, 22, said during an interview Monday at her parents’ Rock Falls house. “The sky wasn’t as black.� Not long before that, Beau was still in bed and probably would have slept past noon. He had planned to watch the Bears game later in the day. Alyssa got up before Beau, and a brewing storm worried her. She received an alert on her cellphone about tornadoes. She always gets anxious about storms, she said.

The roof of the apartment complex where Rock Falls High School graduates Alyssa Valdez and Beau Ebenezer live in Washington, Ill., was torn off by Sunday’s tornado. She woke up her boyfriend, who was unconvinced. But then sirens blared. “I started to get a little scared,â€? Beau said. “Everyone was yelling, saying it was here. ‌ If I

had stayed in bed, I don’t know where I would have ended up.� After the tornado hit, Alyssa, who works for the Center for Youth and Family Solutions in Peoria, hurt herself going

down the stairs. A nail from a board stuck into her wrist. They had nothing left. The twister threw Alyssa’s car into a nearby woods, destroying it. Beau’s car was damaged. As far as they know, no one suffered severe injuries in their complex. One person, though, died in Washington and 50 others were treated in a Peoria hospital. Alyssa’s family had planned to visit Washington that day. Her parents, Jan and Jaime Valdez, and her sister, Carisa, picked up Beau and Alyssa and took them to Rock Falls. Beau and Alyssa visited the local hospital, where Beau got four staples for the wound to his head. They don’t know what their next step will be, though they said their bosses have been understanding. “We don’t have any

“Valentine got sick a couple of times today,� Beau said. “We don’t know if it’s a stress thing.� Soon, Beau and Alyssa will look for a place to live. They’ll want one that accepts dogs.

EARLVILLE – A 20-year-old woman from Batavia died early Sunday when a pickup truck carrying her and four others rolled over near the Lee County border with LaSalle County. Five people were in the front seat of a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado at the time of the crash, Lee County Sheriff John Varga said. Anna Danielson of Batavia was thrown from the truck and later pronounced dead at the scene. Varga said alcohol was a factor in the crash, and that charges were pending against the driver, Jakub D. Baker, 21, of Leland.

Varga said Baker drove the truck through the T intersection of North South and Welland roads in eastern Lee County before it rolled over in a field. Sheriff’s deputies arrived at 12:39 a.m. Sunday, according to a news release, by which time Baker and a passenger, Tyler Becker, 19, of Earlville, had fled. Becker was later located at a local hospital, and Baker was found at his home in Leland. Two other passengers, Max Boltz, 19, of Earlville, and Danny Heath, 22, of Leland, were transported to Mendota Hospital. The crash was still being investigated Monday, Varga said.

2 judges worry court cameras hurt defendants pilot program launched last year and so far more than 30 counties across the state have signed up to participate. Cameras are allowed in courtrooms in the judicial circuits that include Whiteside, Lee, Ogle and Carroll counties. “I think the expectation or the goal is that, as cameras in the courtroom become more frequent that more and more judges and more and more other stakeholders will see that some of the fears they may have do not exist or can be minimized,� said Joe Tybor, a spokesman for the Illinois Supreme Court. “I don’t think resistance from judges was unexpected. It’s understandable because it’s change, and change will meet resistance.� For his part, Bakalis said he’s not ready to write off the cameras entirely, especially if the requests involve cases beyond high-profile felonies. “I would like to see it used a little more widely than it is being used at the present time,� he said. “I’m not going to say I’m never going to do it.�

WHEATON (AP) – Two DuPage County judges said they’re worried a pilot program that allows cameras in the courtroom may hurt defendants’ ability to get a fair trial. Judges George Bakalis and Kathryn Creswell told The (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald that they’re concerned that too much of the coverage might erode the presumption of innocence that defendants are entitled to. “Some of the things I’ve seen so far seem to concentrate on just pictures of accused defendants in prison garb and cuffs,� Bakalis said. “I think that’s a problem for the presumption of innocence, which accompanies each of these cases unless a jury decides otherwise.� Creswell said she’s concerned enough that she’s issued what amounts to a blanket denial for further requests for cameras in the courtroom until she’s convinced “my impressions are incorrect.� Cameras have been allowed to record proceedings as part of a state Supreme Court

APPLETON, Minn. – Mildred Edith Zinda, 96 years, 8 months, and 21 days, died Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2013, at Minnewaska Lutheran Home in Starbuck, Minn. Mildred was born Feb. 21, 1917, to her parents, Fred and Clara (Forschler) Hallaway, on the farm southeast of Holloway in Edison Township, Swift County, Minn. She was baptized in May 1938 in Appleton. She went to country school in District 69 until the age of 10, when her mother died. She went to live with her aunt in Brownsville, Minn., for 2 years. She returned to Holloway and stayed with her sister, Hazel Holzheimer, and went to high school. Mildred graduated from Holloway High School in 1933 and then attended Normal Training in Appleton. She taught school for 3 years before marriage, and then taught 1 year after her marriage. On June 6, 1938, she was married to Ignace Frank Zinda at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Edison Township. They farmed in Edison Township for 56 years, retiring in 1974. After retiring, they spent many winters in Weslaco, Texas. After Ignace’s death on March 8, 1994, Mildred moved into Westview Apartments in Appleton. In September 2011, Mildred became a resident of Minnewaska Lutheran Home. She is survived by four children: Nancy Gron-

holz of Starbuck, Daniel (LaVonne) Zinda of Alexandria, Minn., Bonnie (Arlan) McClain of Dixon, and Judy (Pat) O’Byrne of Littleton, Colo.; nine grandchildren, Michael (Meg) Zinda, Bryan Zinda, Andrea (Darren) Griese, Roxanna (Kevin) Gapstur, Randi Norby, Rob (Marlise) Gronholz, Jill (Chris) Maida, Nathan (Calli) McClain, and Hayley O’Byrne; 16 great-grandchildren; three great-great-grandchildren; her sister, Evelyn Ramseth, of Forest Lake, Minn.; sisterin-law, Marie Zinda, of Appleton; and several nieces, nephews, and other relatives.

Officials: Measure would mean property tax cut SALES TAX

Others also are making that promise. “The plan is to inform the public a little better this time about what school districts are able to offer if the 1 percent tax goes through,� Moore said. Dan Arickx, superintendent of the Rock Falls Elementary district, said his board recently agreed to put the issue on the ballot again. If voters had passed the sales tax increase in April, he said, the district would have eliminated its property tax dedicated to correcting health, life and safety issues in buildings. Overall, that would amount to a 14 percent reduction in Rock Falls

With the sales tax, each public school district would receive a share of

Then it could be spent on new roofs for school buildings, he said. “Some of our roofs are easily 20-plus years old, and they have 15-year lifespans. That’s a future health-life-safety proj-

The Monday afternoon meeting was between representatives of the engineering firms and the Dixon Historic Preservation Commission about maintaining historical aspects of the downtown and identifying areas to highlight. The agreements included meetings with the city, Dixon Main Street and the preservation commission – six including Monday’s – but additional public meetings are expected.

Ash borer update The Dixon City Council on Monday also received an update on the city’s emerald ash borer treatment from Carol Chandler, of the Dixon Tree Commission. Chandler said the Tree Commission has identified 147 ash trees on city property and has started to treat some of them against the emerald ash

borer beetles, which pose a serious threat to the trees. Treating the ash trees will cost the city about $160 for each tree every 2 years, Chandler said, adding that she hoped they wouldn’t have to treat them for more than 10 years. Chandler was seeking input from the City Council and public as to whether the city should continue treating all 147 ash trees or remove them and replace them with a variety of others, as Sterling has decided to do If the city were to treat all of its ash trees, which does not guarantee their survival, it would cost approximately $23,520 every 2 years, Chandler said. The city can buy trees, about 15 feet tall, from a local business for about $295 each, she said.

GIANNA’S HOUSE

STERLING CITY COUNCIL

‘You can’t walk away from it’ Group helps those with unplanned pregnancies

Tax increase likely for city Officials expect big pension hikes

BY KIMBERLY WATLEY For Sauk Valley Media

DEER GROVE – The kickoff of the annual fundraising event for Gianna’s House came with an announcement: It has commissioned Dr. James Gallant to provide medical services to its clients. He will begin in a couple of weeks. Gianna’s House in Rock Falls provides free and confidential services to anyone coping with an unplanned pregnancy. During the annual fundraising dinner last week at Deer Valley Golf Club, Margaret Tyne, the director of operations and development, addressed the crowd. She said Gallant, a physician in emergency medicine at KSB Hospital, being on board will allow women to have simple tests done in-house, rather than being sent elsewhere. “Hope (Life) Pregnancy Center has been very kind to allow us to send our moms over there,� she said of the center, which has offices in Dixon and Sterling. “It has always been a goal of ours to provide these services here.� New to Gianna’s House in July, Tyne said this year’s campaign will help to buy an ultrasound machine and other necessary medical equipment. It receives no government funding and relies solely on funds from area churches, individuals, organizations and businesses. Though monetary donations are essential, they are a small part in fulfilling the mission. Equally important, Tyne said, is discussing adoption and seeing a pregnancy to term, while assisting women with local resources, supplies, education and counseling. Retired priest Richard Kramer was just 7 years ordained in 1973 when the Supreme Court ruled on Roe v. Wade. “We knew the emotional pain and struggles women went through when they miscarried, losing a child to no fault of their own,� he said. “We knew some 50, 60 years down the line, we would have some crazy people not knowing how to deal with the guilt of abortion. It didn’t take that long.� Thus, he said, began the Catholic Church’s efforts to counsel those who had had abortions and those who were considering. Keynote speaker Vicki Thorn, founder of Project Rachel, has traveled all over the world to teach and lecture about the anthropology of women. Her role began with a “life-changing event� that a friend experienced. Having been molested by her brother, the

About Gianna’s House

It’s been 40 years since the Supreme Court ruled on Roe V. Wade. In that time, an estimated 55 million legal abortions have occurred.

The girl’s mother forced her to put the baby up for adoption. She became pregnant a second time, also presumably by her brother, and her mother arranged for an abortion. Immediately afterward, she was sent to a boarding school, where she met Thorn. “I listened to her talk about what happened,� Thorn said. “And she said, ‘I can live with the adoption, not the abortion.’ The myth is, it is a non-procedure. “Whether chemical or surgical, it is a deep life experience. It is so much in the essence of our being that you can’t walk away from it.� She discussed the biological reaction that both men and women experience upon conception. It is something so in-depth and vital, she hopes the support team at Gianna’s House will adapt the same teachings she learned through research and scientific study. “No one ever tells you you’re changed from the moment of conception,� she said. “And it’s for the better. But one in three

women have an abortion by the age of 45, and they never go back to how they were biologically. They carry cells of that child, whether they carry them to term or not, forever.� Thorn believes abortion is an epidemic, a quick-fix in a society lacking in morals. It is up to places like Gianna’s House to educate young women, showing them another way, she said. “There are no boundaries in this ‘hookup’ society. They are exposed to junk and have never seen a moral lifestyle,� Thorn said. “Worst part is they don’t know where to find it. Even if the marriage of our parents was shattered, we looked up to the aunts, uncles and grandparents in our lives. Grandma and Grandpa were married a thousand years, as far as we knew. These poor kids have nothing.� Tyne said the facility, which opened in 2007,

City plans to demolish house on First Avenue BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com    EXT

STERLING – The city will demolish a rundown house on First Avenue. On Monday, the Sterling City Council voted unanimously to demolish the big white house at 902 First Ave. The house has been vacant or abandoned for at least 3 years, according to the city. “Part of the roof is caved in. The porch is falling apart,� said Amanda Schmidt, the city’s building and

zoning superintendent. In October, the city received an order from Whiteside County Court to proceed with demolition. The owner, Bill Fassler, never showed up in court, Schmidt said. “He was hard to serve [with papers],� she said. CP’s Demolition was the low bidder at $11,900. Asbestos abatement will be contracted out before demolition occurs. The project is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

ILLINOIS

State to observe moment of silence Friday for JFK CHICAGO (AP) – Illinois will mark the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination with a moment of silence this week. Gov. Pat Quinn has also ordered that flags at all state of Illinois facilities be flown at half-staff Friday. The moment of silence will take place at 1 p.m. that day. Quinn says Kennedy’s

life is an inspiration and should make people shun violence in any form. Chicago’s City Council has passed a resolution call for all city and state flags to be flown at half-staff on Friday. The resolution also urges churches to toll their bells. Kennedy was shot and killed on Nov. 22, 1963, in Dallas.

STERLING – The city is expecting big increases in its contributions to the fire and police pension funds, which likely means higher taxes. Last year’s tax levy was $3.3 million, which the city expects to increase to $3.5 million. It amounts to a 5.5 percent increase. The levy for the general fund, which pays for things such as police and fire, is expected to drop by $30,000. But the fire pension contribution is estimated to jump by 18 percent to $562,046. The city still is await-

ing projections for the police pension fund, but the calculation is now estimated at 10 percent over last year’s amount. If the levy ends up exceeding 5 percent, then the city would be required by law to hold a public hearing. The final number depends on the police pension fund, information that the city expects to get within the next week. On Monday, the City Council approved the tax levy estimates. If the city’s levy increases by 5.5 percent, the owner of a $100,000 house, using a homestead exemption, would get a $3.81-a-month tax increase, City Administrator Scott Shumard said. The city must vote on its final levy by the end of the year.

EDITORIAL: WHAT WE THINK | 150TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE GETTYSBURG ADDRESS

A speech greatly noted and long remembered “T F

he world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, ‌â€? President Abraham Lincoln said 150 years ago today as he delivered the Gettysburg Address in Gettysburg, Pa. Modestly put, Mr. Lincoln, but incorrect. The would has greatly noted and long remembered your eloquent, meaningful words. Brevity, the soul of wit, is also the soul of memorable speeches. In 272 words, Lincoln distilled exactly what was at stake in the Civil War, for which thousands of Union soldiers, buried at Gettysburg, gave their lives. The nation was “conceived in liberty,â€? Lincoln said, though slavery paradoxically was tolerated in the South. If the North prevailed in a civil war that was precipitated by the secession of 11 slave states, then “a new birth of freedomâ€? – the abolition of slavery – could take place.

Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation started the task. Ratification of the 13th Amendment would finish it – a ratification that Lincoln, felled by an assassin, would not live to see. The Lincoln who accomplished two Herculean chores – saving the Union and freeing the slaves – was the same Lincoln who traversed the Sauk Valley as a volunteer soldier during the Black Hawk War of 1832, and as a politician during the 1850s. Can the Sauk Valley be proud that such a great man once stood in our ancestors’ midst? Yes. At Gettysburg, Lincoln urged “us[,] the living� to carry on the difficult work of the fallen soldiers. Seven score and 10 years later, we, the living, are tasked to carry on Lincoln’s quest to preserve democracy and freedom. Let Lincoln’s ideals, like his Gettysburg Address, be long embraced.

A figure of Abraham Lincoln stands in the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum and Library in Springfield. A copy of the speech in Lincoln’s hand is on display.

GETTYSBURG ADDRESS our score and seven years ago, our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who

struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us – that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion – that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain – that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom – and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. – Abraham Lincoln

GUEST COLUMN

Triumph and trivia of the Gettysburg Address Historic speech, now 150 years old, shows how even ‘trivial’ matters can have a huge impact JAMES M. CORNELIUS Springfield

Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, delivered 150 years ago on Nov. 19, 1863, has become part of our historical literature. First spoken at a new cemetery in that old Pennsylvania village, it has been reproduced on hundreds of thousands of souvenir papers, T-shirts, bronze plaques, and marble walls. It is a part of schoolkids’ culture, of aspiring immigrants’ thoughts, and of veterans’ remembrances. There are also scores of teeny-tiny facts about Lincoln himself that day, and about the speech, that fascinate people today. Who were the 36 other people sleeping in Judge Wills’ house on the square that night? Did Lincoln give a watch to your great-great-grandpa on the train to Pennsylvania? What was the name of the president’s horse in the procession? Is my fake parchment copy of it the real thing? Please do not scoff – individuals care about these discrete details because hundreds of mil-

lions of people care about the epochal events: the Battle of Gettysburg in July 1863 that killed more than 7,800 men, and the speech of 272 words that set this James M. nation on a Cornelius path toward resolution. If you are serious about a subject, then you are probably serious about some of its sidelights. LINCOLN HIMSELF cared about the tiniest of nuances. That is why, in the course of drafting his five manuscripts of the Address, he kept altering words: Good: “upon� Better: “on� Good: “propriety� Better: “fitting and proper� Good: “to stand here� Better: “here be dedicated� Good: “shall have a new birth� Better: “under God, shall have a new birth� Some things sound better when spoken; some things read better when writ-

ten. Some principles need italicizing with the human voice. All things bear improvement. Lincoln the tinkerer, the lawyer, the politician, the commander, the president, knew that. Most of all, he knew that this nation needed a “new birth� to make itself better. The myths surrounding the Gettysburg Address are few and unimportant. His invitation to speak was not a late afterthought. He did not write any of the speech on an envelope. He did not write any of it on the train. He did not think it a failure. Indeed, the facts are bigger and better than the myths: he began thinking about his message just 4 days after the battles of July; he polished it up the night before the speech in the presence of William Johnson, a black man; he was ill with smallpox for several days afterward, and might have been feeling poorly by Nov. 18. But Lincoln was not skipping the trip on his own account; he was certainly going to Gettysburg, once the family doctor assured him and Mary that their

AP

This 1905 artist’s rendering from the Sherwood Lithograph Co. via the Library of Congress depicts President Abraham Lincoln speaking at the dedication of the Gettysburg National Cemetery on Nov. 19, 1863. The Gettysburg Address is unusual among great American speeches, in part because the occasion did not call for a great American speech. “No one was looking for him to make history,� James McPherson, a Pulitzer Prize-winning Civil War historian, said. 10-year-old boy, Tad, would recover from his own bout of smallpox. So, is it trivial that William Johnson was in the room? Not if you imagine that Lincoln had that one person in mind while he was writing to ensure the freedom of 4 million other African-Americans; writing to steel the nation’s resolve to

fight on and preserve the Union; writing because “these dead shall not have died in vain.� In our freedom we can look up the trivial, but we must prize the big picture. All of Lincoln’s efforts have proved triumphant, thanks to more soldiers and citizens and citizensto-be than he could ever have imagined.

I suppose that George Bush was responsible for the government shutdown as well, even though it was the Democrats who wouldn’t negotiate.

Also, I turned on the TV one night and saw part of a program about a floating mound of thousands of tons of debris in or on the ocean floor – moving around? Why haven’t we heard more about that? A man cleans barge loads of “stuff� from the Mississippi River with lots of volunteer help each year. Rock Falls cleans the canal every year. We need more interest in our water areas. They’re very precious to us. Keep the stories coming.

Lies surround health care law CHAD BLANCHETTE Dixon

Kathryn Bonnell’s recent letter [“Give the new health care plan a chance,� The Reader’s Voice, Nov. 9] stated that if a lie is repeated, people will start believing. She is right. Millions of Americans believed Obama after dozens of lies about keeping their health care. He even lied to his fellow

Democrats just to get it approved, and even those guys are ticked. Everyone believed except those who knew better. Finally, the liberal media is starting to catch on. What you have is a huge joke by an even bigger joker. Unfortunately, there has been a multitude of lies and mistakes that are unaccounted for and not even cared about. They reported that the Benghazi attack was the result of a video. Do you believe that? Or do you pay

attention to the other details surrounding the attack? For example, witnesses were forced to keep silent. Or do you believe that Benghazi was a person? Obama didn’t know anything about the NSA or the IRS scandals. Do you believe that? All you need to do is pay attention to what he says and does, or doesn’t say and do, to understand him. Bonnell’s letter also stated that some insurance plans are junk and don’t meet the government’s

Woman should take dating slow for now Dear Abby: I am attracted to a man who is 27 years my junior. He is also attracted to me because he initiated our meeting. We have gone out a few times, and he says he doesn’t care about our age difference. He has also mentioned us living together and said he would gladly pay half the expenses even though I make more than he does. Is this appropriate in today’s society? I don’t look much older than he does. But I’m from a generation in which this kind of thing would be looked down upon. Still, I realize that the world has changed, and I feel a strong attraction to him. I would appreciate any advice you can give me. – His Older Woman in Maryland

in successful MayDecember relationships in which the age made little difference. But I would suggest that you let this relationship develop a little further before deciding whether to move in together, and age has nothing to do with it.

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

Dear Older Woman: In many ways the world has changed. However, I assume that you socialize with couples and individuals in your age group, and this may cost you some of those relationships because your friends may be uncomfortable with the age difference. I have printed letters from couples involved

Dear Wardrobe Mistress: While your impulse to help your friend is laudable, it would be a mistake to suggest she change her image while she is in a “fragile state.� Dear Abby: I have Let some time pass, and a good friend I have THEN make a date for known for 15 years.

he got nude photos from another girl. I don’t do that. I am hurt and torn on what to do. Please help. – Betrayed in Ohio Dear Betrayed: If there are no other red flags, don’t waste your time being jealous. Take a lesson from this: The other girl gave him nude pictures of herself, but he’s still with you. If he should ask you to give him similar photos of yourself, don’t do it, because you will gain nothing and could lose a lot of privacy.

football games and our grandson’s soccer games, and it annoys me when I see women leave their hats on. Doesn’t “everyone� also include them? Shouldn’t they do this to show their respect for our flag and country? – Stickler in Florida

Dear Abby: At sporting events when everyone is asked to remove their hats for the national anthem, does this include females? We attend NFL

Dear Stickler: Whether a woman’s hat should be removed depends on where it is being worn. In a theater or at a wedding, the hat should be removed as a courtesy if it blocks someone’s view. At a sporting event, a casual hat should be taken off when the anthem is playing. However, at more formal events, if the hat is part of the woman’s ensemble, it usually stays in place.

ILLINOIS TORNADOES

Forecasts, warnings spared lives from storms Many families were in church in Washington WASHINGTON (AP) – When a cluster of violent thunderstorms began marching across the Midwest, forecasters were able to draw a bright line on a map showing where the worst of the weather would go. Their uncannily accurate predictions – combined with television and radio warnings, textmessage alerts and storm sirens – almost cer-

tainly saved lives as rare late-season tornadoes dropped out of a dark autumn sky. Although the storms howled through 12 states and flattened entire neighborhoods within a matter of minutes, the number of dead stood at just eight. By Monday, another, more prosaic reason for the relatively low death toll also came to light: In the hardest-hit town, many families were in church. “I don’t think we had one church damaged,� said Gary Manier, mayor of Washington, a community of 16,000 about

140 miles southwest of Chicago. The tornado cut a path about an eighth of a mile wide from one side of Washington to the other and damaged or destroyed as many as 500 homes. The heavy weather also battered parts of Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, West Virginia, Pennsylvania and western New York. Back in Washington, Daniel Bennett was officiating Sunday services before 600 to 700 people when he heard an electronic warning tone. Then another. And another.

“I’d say probably two dozen phones started going off in the service, and everybody started looking down,� he said. What they saw was a text message from the National Weather Service cautioning that a twister was in the area. Bennett stopped the service and ushered everyone to a safe place until the threat passed. A day later, many townspeople said those messages helped minimize deaths and injuries. “That’s got to be connected,� Bennett said. “The ability to get instant information.�

Pastor Daniel Bennett, of the Bethany Community Church in Washington, bicycles through neighborhoods in the town Monday, looking for parishioners’ homes damaged by Sunday’s tornado. Bennett said 600 to 700 people were at a service at his church when the tornado hit.

Survivors shaken by powerful twisters across the state Six deaths most ever in one day from tornadoes in November in state history ST. LOUIS (AP) – Nestled among the quiet fields of corn and beans that dominate the southwest Illinois landscape, Joe Hoy’s llamas, ducks, rabbits and goats provided a cherished soundtrack for his neighbors and were a source of fascination for area children who would stop by to see them. The farm was gone in a flash Sunday, as one of several powerful tornadoes that touched down in Illinois and elsewhere in the Midwest raked the 80-year-old Hoy’s property near New Minden, killing him, his sister and their menagerie and destroying their house and fields. “Joe Hoy had a heart as big as all of the outdoors,� said Judy Harmening, whose own farm a quarter-mile away was left untouched. “We could sit on our porch and listen to the sounds that came up from that farm. We didn’t know what bird or animal it was, but I’ll miss that.� Sunday’s tornadoes, which were notable for how destructive they were and how late in the year they struck, killed at least six people in Illinois and two others in Michigan and injured hundreds of others. The

six deaths were the most from tornadoes on any November day in Illinois’ state history, the National Weather Service confirmed Monday. In addition to the deaths of Hoy and his 78-yearold sister, Frances Hoy, three people were killed in Brookport, a town in Massac County, in Illinois’ southern tip. Another person was killed in Washington, a central Illinois city of about 16,000 residents where Mayor Garry Manier said hundreds of homes had been damaged or destroyed. The National Weather Service said the Washington tornado, like the one that flattened Hoy’s farm, had a preliminary rating of EF-4, meaning it had wind speeds of 170 to 190 mph. The state’s Emergency Management Agency said 150 to 200 people were injured in Illinois, and Gov. Pat Quinn declared portions of Champaign, Grundy, LaSalle, Massac, Tazewell, Washington and Woodford counties to be disaster areas. He updated President Barack Obama about the damage and relief efforts in Obama’s home state during a phone call Monday, said Quinn’s spokeswom-

Tornado damage is seen Monday in Brookport. Dozens of tornadoes and intense thunderstorms swept across the U.S. Midwest on Sunday, unleashing powerful winds that flattened entire neighborhoods, flipped over cars and uprooted trees. an, Brooke Anderson. Many residents of affected areas said they knew what was coming, having seen weather alerts on their television screens. But they still raced for shelter, with Harmening barely able to get her father, who uses a walker, into the house as the wind became fierce and the sky turned ominously gray. They didn’t quite make it to the basement. “There was no rain with it. We’re lucky we had 10 or 12 drops of rain,� Harmening said. Just sec-

onds later, “the sun was shining, and there was a rainbow off to the east. It was the weirdest storm I’ve ever witnessed.� The coroner said Hoy’s body was found about 100 yards from where his house stood. Frances Hoy, who Harmening said was developmentally disabled and cared for by her brother, died later at a hospital. In tiny New Minden, the storm toppled a church steeple and cemetery headstones and tore the roof off a convenience store, said the town’s

president, Candi Cross. But she said the village dodged the storm’s brunt when the twister she saw coming across a field suddenly turned away from town as she ran for cover to her mom’s neighboring home, her Chihuahua clutched to her chest. “The leaves were twirling around me, higher than I am tall,� she said. “It took everything I could to stand up straight and run. I no more got to my mom’s house, and it was all over with. It just took seconds.�

Bridge magazine features deal help

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

If you asked experts which is the best bridge magazine, they would all answer, “The Bridge World.” Edited by Jeff Rubens (I am the associate editor), it aims mostly at experienced tournament players. However, there is also material for those trying to elevate their games to that level. You can bid 10 hands with your partner and compare your results against two expert pairs. And you can answer the eight bidding and opening-lead problems set to an expert panel. If you get the highest score, you win a book prize. This deal is from the monthly quiz entitled “Improve Your Defense.” Look at the West and North hands. Defending against

three no-trump, West leads his fourth-highest diamond. East wins with his ace and returns a diamond to South’s king. Should West be doing anything in particular?

The auction is straightforward. With a good, long minor, no short suit and no thoughts of slam, North should raise to three notrump. This is a position that experts take in their stride, but less capable players do not have down pat. If you look at the full deal, declarer is going to take the club finesse at trick three. It is going to lose, and East will be wondering whether to shift to a spade or to a heart. If he leads the wrong suit, declarer runs for home with three hearts, one diamond and five clubs. West must help his partner by dropping the diamond 10 under South’s king. The unnecessarily high card is a suit-preference signal for the higher-ranking major suit.

It’s been more than 2 years since big slump NEW YORK (AP) – Is the stock market due for a pullback? The Dow Jones industrial average has surged 900 points since early October and crossed the 16,000-point threshold Monday. IPOs are hot again. Small investors, stirred from their post-recession daze, are coming back to stocks. And it’s been more than two years since the market has had a significant slump. Those trends have raised concerns of a stock bubble. They shouldn’t, money managers say, because even with the broader market’s 26 percent jump this year, stocks aren’t overpriced yet. “Stocks are not cheap,

Trader Joseph Murray works Monday on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. The Dow Jones industrial average crossed 16,000 points for the first time early Monday and the Standard & Poor’s 500 index crossed 1,800 points. but that does not mean that the stock market is expensive,� says Russ Koesterich, chief investment strategist with Blackrock. The ratio of stock prices to projected profits for companies in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index is 15, according to

data from FactSet. That’s slightly below the average of 16.2 over the last 15 years and far below the peak of 25 in late 1990s and early 2000s. Underneath the rally, most of the fundamentals of this market remain solid. Corporate profit margins are

near historic highs and profits are expected to keep rising. There are no signs the U.S. economy, which is still recovering from the 2008 financial crisis and Great Recession, will slip back into a downturn. All that leaves investors with conflicting feelings. Few see the stock market as attractive as it was at the beginning of the year, but fewer see an alternative where they should put their money. Bonds are down 2.1 percent this year, according to the benchmark Barclays U.S. Aggregate bond index. Cash has a nearzero return in money market funds. Gold has dropped 24 percent. “It’s hard to say stocks are expensive when you compare them to any other asset class,� says Brian Hogan, director of equities at Fidelity Investments. “The other options are simply not attractive.�

Samantha Scheibe, provided deputies with a key to the home and they George were able to push the Zimmerman door that had been barricaded. Lemma says Zimmerman was compliant when deputies came to the house. “The easiest way to describe it is rather passive. He’s had the opportunity to encounter this before,� he said. Zimmerman was charged with aggravated

assault with a weapon, battery and criminal mischief. “Just when you thought you heard the last of George Zimmerman,� said neighbor Catherine Cantrell. She said she had twice seen a man who looked like Zimmerman get out of a truck that’s been in the driveway for nearly a month. The truck parked there Monday appeared to be the same one that reporters have seen Zimmerman drive previously. “I’m in absolute shock. He was never outside. It’s not like he was out

flaunting around,� she said. Cantrell said the woman who lived in the home was very sweet and quiet. Sarah Tyler, 26, also lives across the street from the tan stucco house on a cul-de-sac street of single family homes in Apopka, about 15 miles northwest of Orlando. “It’s kind of frightening,� she said, adding that she only saw a woman came out of the house. Zimmerman, 30, was acquitted in July of all charges in the shooting of Trayvon Martin.

DOUBLE TIME Hard-working Rock Falls defense stymies Comets BY BRIAN WEIDMAN bweidman@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 551

STERLING – Thanks to some suffocating defense, Rock Falls was able to double its pleasure in the season opener against Newman on Monday night. The Rockets amassed 13 steals and caused 23 turnovers on their way to a 50-25 victory over the Comets in a Sauk Valley Shootout contest at Newman. Rock Falls coach Craig Mammosser employed a man-to-man defense for the bulk of the game, and it worked to a tee. “We were trying to run and jump to the next pass, and really rotate defensively,” Mammosser said. “I think we did a very good job of that. We flustered them a little bit – sped them up. You don’t always have to steal the ball. If you speed a team up

he Bears-Ravens game was different. I’m stating the obvious, but when grading the Bears’ individual performances against the Ravens, it’s critical to consider the extreme weather conditions, miserable playing surface and that both teams had to overcome a 1 hour, 53 minute delay. Marc Trestman and his entire coaching staff get an A, in large part for the way they took advantage of the long delay, refocused their team and brought them back to win a game they almost lost in the first quarter. Trestman is having a really good rookie year. I also want to give an A to the 46 players, for the way they responded to the conditions, the delay and all their injured teammates. This is really important because the individual grades, even allowing for the terrible weather, are a bit below what I was prepared for when I began reviewing the tape. Josh McCown gets a B. He took care of the football and made a few key plays when he had to, most importantly the 43-yard throw to Martellus Bennett in overtime. But he also left more than a few plays on the field, some due to the conditions, but some because he is playing very conservatively and athletically. ARKUSH CONTINUED ON B4

Check his credentials

Johnson belongs in conversation about all-time best drivers BY JENNA FRYER AP Auto Racing Writer

HOMESTEAD, Fla. – It took Jimmie Johnson just 13 races into his rookie season with Hendrick Motorsports to prove to his team he was a rare talent. He had just won at Dover for his second victory in 4 weeks and was debriefing with crew chief Chad Knaus when he brought up a sensation he felt in the car that day that he was certain came from wind blowing through a gap in the grandstands. It was remarkable insight, Knaus said, from a driver who understands very little about the setup of a race car.

“He can feel the car. He can be one with the car,” Knaus said. “I know that sounds foolish, it sounds weird. But, seriously, go to a surfer and ask him about his surfboard. Go to a snowboarder and ask him

about his snowboard. Go to a skier, ask him about his skis. “When they’re able to get in that position, and they feel the car, understand what the car is going to do, it’s pretty amazing. Jimmie can really do that. He feels what’s going on.” Knaus went so far as to claim Johnson does things in the car “most mortals can’t.” His resume supports that claim. Johnson continued his romp through the NASCAR record books Sunday night by winning his sixth championship in 8 years. CHECK CONTINUED ON B2

Stillman Valley fullback Zac Hare motors past Winnebago during Saturday’s 3A quarterfinal game in Stillman Valley. The Cardinals avenged a regular-season loss to the Indians with a 34-20 win. BY DAN WOESSNER DWOESSNER SAUKVALLEYCOM    EXT

Here are some numbers that help to explain the quarterfinals of the high school football season.

32:37

That’s how long the Newman Comets’ offense had possession of the ball during Saturday’s 34-33 win over Momence. That included a third quarter in which Momence only had the ball for two offensive snaps. However, one of those snaps for Momence turned into a 59-yard touchdown pass from Aaron Cantwell to Zack Harmann.

64

That’s how many first downs the Newman Comets have through three rounds of the playoffs. They have allowed 28. On Saturday, Newman had 27 first downs compared to Momence’s 14.

3

That’s how many extra points Momence’s Joe Salazar made during Saturday’s game against Newman. Salazar missed a secondquarter attempt wide left after the Redskins scored with 22.1 seconds left in the half. The missed extra point proved pivotal, as the Redskins were forced to go for a 2-point conversion after pulling within a point after a touchdown with 43.4 seconds left in the game.

1.8

That’s the average point differential for Newman quarterfinal games in the last five seasons, including Saturday’s one-point win over Momence. In 2009, the Comets lost 21-20 to Stillman Valley in the 3A playoffs. In 2010, they beat Morrison 22-19, which was followed by a 15-12 loss to the Mustangs in 2011. In 2012, Newman beat Wilmington 28-26.

4

That’s how many state titles Mercer County – previously Aledo High School – has after winning last year’s 2A title. Mercer County is 25-1 in the last two seasons. Newman will host Mercer County at 1 p.m. on Saturday at Roscoe Eades Stadium.

With only the mark of seven titles won by Richard Petty and the late Dale Earnhardt ahead of him, Johnson is making a solid case to be considered one of the best to ever climb into a race car. It’s a debate he wants no part of, shrugging in his champagnesoaked firesuit Sunday night that those conversations can wait until after he’s done racing. There are some who believe Johnson is a product of his environment, and he wins because he drives for mighty Hendrick Motorsports in a car prepared by Knaus, a crew chief so laserfocused on the No. 48 Chevrolet that it’s not always evident if he finds any joy in his job. There’s also an argument that Johnson’s titles stem from the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship format, which debuted in 2004 as a 10-race playoff. It replaced the decades-old system of crowning a champion based on an entire season, and Johnson reeled off five consecutive titles beginning with Year 3 of the Chase. Indeed, under the old scoring system, Johnson would not have won titles in 2007, 2008 or 2010.

That’s how many points were scored in Greenville’s 71-70 win over Mount Carmel High School in Class 3A. Greenville rallied from a 70-49 deficit with 4:23 left in the game. The Comets recovered two onside kicks in that span. Tyler Hutchinson hit Austin Lawrence for the game-winning 2-point conversion with 20 seconds left. Hutchinson completed 43 of 82 pass attempts for 644 yards, six touchdowns and three interceptions.

Jimmie Johnson won his sixth Sprint Cup title this weekend. It puts him one championship behind Richard Petty and Dale Earnhardt for most all-time. But that’s not his problem. He raced under the rules at the time, on the same playing field as everyone else on the track – the same as Petty did during his heyday, and Earnhardt during his time. As far as Petty is concerned, the debate is pointless. “All I can say is Earnhardt did his thing in his time against his competition. I did mine against my competition, and he’s doing his thing against his competi-

tion,� Petty said. “We didn’t compete with each other. He wasn’t there to race against Richard Petty or Earnhardt, and we didn’t have to race against Jimmie Johnson, either. “You can’t compare. It’s not apples and apples. It’s apples and oranges.� Petty is right. It is very difficult to compare. But Johnson has very much earned the right to be part of the conversation by winning his six titles faster than Petty and Earnhardt, by becoming the youngest driver at 38 to reach the mark, and by winning 30 more races (he has 66 total Cup wins) than any other driver in the last 11 years. “I don’t think he wants to try to prove it to anybody else, he just wants to prove it to himself,� team owner Rick Hendrick said. “I’ve never seen anyone that works any harder and is any more committed to his physical conditioning, from the way he eats at certain times of the year, when he gets into the Chase, the way he works out. “He doesn’t have to run over people. He doesn’t have to go out and brag about what he’s done. He just shows up, does his job. Sooner or later people have to say, ‘You’re the deal.’�

Rock Falls’ Kara Nehkorn goes up for a shot Monday during the Rockets’ 50-25 win over Newman in the first night of action of the Sterling Shootout.

Rockets pull away from Comets DOUBLE

CONTINUED FROM B1

Nehrkorn scored all nine of her points in the first 3 1/2 minutes of play to stake Rock Falls to an 11-2 lead, and the Rockets were in control the rest of the way. Their lead was 18 points (29-11) by halftime, and ballooned to as many as 33 points (50-17) after a basket from reserve guard Bailie Smith with 4:15 remaining. Newman closed with an 8-0 run the rest of the way to account for the final. Bailey Schrader paced

a balanced Rock Falls attack with 10 points, while Nehrkorn and Chelsi Blair added nine each. Seven players scored at least four points for Rock Falls. “That’s what you’re going to see,� Mammosser said. “These girls know coming in I want them to work their butts off for 3 or 4 minutes at a time, then we’re going to sub and we’re going to rotate, and then they’re going to get their butts back in there and work for 3 or 4 minutes at a time.� Mary Alice Oswalt and Bree deLong each had five points for Newman, while Julie Hurd added four.

The Comets did own a 33-29 lead in the rebounding department, but other than that, not much went right. They were 9-for-44 (20.4 percent) from the field, made just 6 of 16 free throws and had just two assists, in addition to their ballhandling issues. “We didn’t react well to their pressure,� Newman coach Jay Howell said, “and then when we did react well to it, we couldn’t finish. They just kept pressuring and pressuring because we couldn’t take advantage of any of their overplays. They just overwhelmed us.�

NBA | BULLS 86, BOBCATS 81

Bulls hit a high five Winning streak still alive after beating Bobcats BY K.C. JOHNSON Chicago Tribune

CHICAGO – Technically, the Bulls’ first fivegame win streak since March 7, 2012, began on Nov. 8. In Tom Thibodeau’s world, the streak, which continued in less-thanstellar fashion with Monday’s 86-81 victory over the Bobcats, started on Nov. 4. That’s when the schedule allowed a team that had played disjointedly and in fragmented fashion since an injuryplagued training camp to practice – for consecutive days. This is Thibodeau’s version of heaven. And even though those 2 days initially were followed by a road loss at the Pacers, defensive and offensive chemistry began to form. That cohesion didn’t make consistent appearances in an underwhelming effort that featured 36 percent shooting and 16 turnovers. But in their last United Center appearance before a season-high, six-game trip, they mustered just enough plays to keep the win total climbing, if not the across-the-board improvement. “They play a way that leads to winning and playoff execution,� Bobcats coach Steve Clifford said. “They play playoffstyle basketball 82 times a year. So they’re preparing for the games they need to prepare for.� Luol Deng’s 21 points led the Bulls, with none bigger than his 3-pointer

Star of the game: Joakim Noah, Bulls, 17 rebounds, 12 points Up next: Bulls at Nuggets, 9:30 p.m. Thursday TV/Radio: TNT, WGN/1000 AM

The Bulls’ Luol Deng (9) goes up for a shot against against the Bobcats’ Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (14) and Jeff Adrien (4) during Monday’s game in Chicago. with 27.1 seconds left and the Bobcats down just one. The Bulls had led by as many as 10 early, before failing to score the final 5 minutes of the first half. They also endured a 6-minute stretch without a field goal in the second half, though they did make free throws in this span.

That included Derrick Rose’s first free-throw attempts in 10 quarters, a staggering statistic for someone who attacks the basket as much as Rose does. Lately, though, Rose has tended to settle for outside shots. Rose went 4-for-13 with just 12 points, but hit a huge floater with 1 minute, 46 seconds left for a

four-point lead. Following a Gerald Henderson 3-pointer, Rose followed with a strong drive and left-handed lay-in with 67 seconds remaining. “I’m not going to stop working,� Rose said. “I’m going to keep shooting. My confidence is just going to keep growing. Like I said, I’m going to have games like that where I shoot great. I’m going to have games where I miss the majority of my shots. But that’s not going to stop me from taking the shots that I normally take. Carlos Boozer also struggled with 5-for-17 shooting but, like Rose, stayed with the game to deliver big plays late. He had a tip-in and nifty interior feed to Joakim Noah as part of his 12-point, season-high, 17-rebound night. Jimmy Butler scored 10 points in the first 6 minutes and overcame a right toe injury to finish with 14 as all five starters hit double figures again. “It got choppy, particularly in the second quarter,� Thibodeau said. “They do that to you. They’re very good defensively. The second half, we did a better job of getting the ball to the other side. But we found a way to win. We just kept grinding.�

NFL | PANTHERS 24, PATRIOTS 20

Newton’s late TD lifts Panthers Brady irate after officals waive off penalty on game’s last play BY STEVE REED AP Sports Writer

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Cam Newton threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Ted Ginn Jr. with 59 seconds left, and the Carolina Panthers held off the New England Patriots 24-20 Monday night for their sixth straight victory when officials picked up a penalty flag on the final play. Stephen Gostkowski’s 26-yard field goal put the Patriots up 20-17 before Newton drove Carolina 83 yards on 13 plays for the go-ahead touchdown. The speedy Ginn escaped Kyle Arrington along the left sideline and outraced Logan Ryan to the left pylon for his third touchdown of the season.

AP

Panthers fullback Mike Tolbert (35) tries to elude Patriots free safety Devin McCourty (32) during Monday’s game in Charlotte, N.C. The Patriots appeared on the verge of making an improbable comeback when Brady moved New England to the Carolina 18 and fired into the end zone on the

game’s final play. The pass was intercepted by safety Robert Lester, but officials threw a flag after it appeared linebacker Luke Kuechly had interfered with tight

end Rob Gronkowski by grabbing him with both hands. But officials quickly gathered together and waved off the flag. An angry Brady sprinted over to two officials to argue the call, as they walked off the field. Meanwhile, the Panthers celebrated. “We had good pressure and our safety Robert Lester was in good position to make the play,� Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. Brady was 29 of 40 for 296 yards and one touchdown. Newton completed 19 of 28 passes for 209 yards and three touchdowns. He also ran seven times for 62 yards in what will go down as one of his best games as a pro.

CONTINUED FROM B1

He just can’t do everything that Jay Cutler can. The running backs also get a B. Matt Forte had a really nice bounce back game after struggling against the Lions, but too much of his production is wrapped up in the 14-yard touchdown catch and two runs of 15 and 20 yards. His other 20 touches yielded 76 yards. Also, Forte’s blocking has really slipped this year, and Michael Bush remains M.I.A. The receivers get a B -. Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery each had key drops, and Marshall

caught just four of the ten balls thrown his way, Jeffery only seven of 11. Is it possible neither McCown nor Jay Cutler like Earl Bennett, or can he just not get open any more? You have to agree it’s more likely the latter. Martellus Bennett can have an A or a C -. He is really struggling with his blocking as he fights through injuries, and he had two costly penalties that could merit the C -. But I’m going with the A. He has been fighting through injuries most of the season and never complains. He plays with the kind of heart that wins championships and, if not for his OT catch, they might

still be playing. The offensive line also gets a B. They did a really nice job of protecting McCown as a group, but they are not blocking the run well enough on most plays. Jermon Bushrod in particular did a really nice job on Terrell Suggs. The defensive line gets a B+. When Julius Peppers takes over games, the Bears’ entire defense can look different. That’s what happened against the Ravens. He was the best player on the field all day. David Bass and Cheta Ozougwu had the biggest plays of their lives to complement Peppers. But the rest of the line struggled, and you can’t give up 174 yards rush-

ing and expect to win games. The linebackers get a C-. See the thing about giving up 174 rushing yards. I’m giving the secondary a B -. Tim Jennings had a really nice game, Chris Conte was a tad better than usual, Major Wright and Isaiah Frey weren’t, and Zack Bowman has to get better. Special teams get a B on the strength of Robbie Gould being perfect and getting the game-winner in spite of the horrible conditions. This was easily the biggest win of the season for the team, but only Peppers, Bushrod and Martellus Bennett stood out as individuals.
