SERVING ROCK FALLS, STERLING AND THE SURROUNDING AREA SINCE 1854

EDUCATION | HOW SCHOOLS RATE

Economics affects school scores Prophetstown, Rock Falls are examples BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 525

At Merrill Elementary School in Rock Falls, fewer than half the students met federal standards, according to test results released Thursday.

From 2012 to 2013, the number of students proficient in both reading and math fell from 54 percent to 44 percent. That makes it the lowest among elementary schools in Whiteside and Lee counties. But there’s another number worth considering: The Rock Falls elementary school district had the highest number of students considered low-

income – 77 percent. That’s at least 10 percentage points more than in the Sterling and Dixon elementary schools, with the exception of Sterling’s Jefferson, which is at 69 percent. Rock Falls Elementary Superintendent Dan Arickx said the data show that more of his district’s children are low-income, but “we’re not using that as a crutch.”

“Our families have a lot more to think about than to make sure homework is done every night,” Arickx said. “Every family, regardless of income, probably has things going on, but low-income families have more intense issues to worry about.” The district, he said, tries to work with families the best it can. “We help students after-

hours,” Arickx said. “We help them get as much done at school as possible, so we can alleviate the stress at home.” Students are helped after school during what teachers are treating as study halls, Arickx said. Some students, he said, don’t have access to technology at home, so they need extra help. ECONOMICS CONTINUED ON A2

Harvest results positive High corn yields reported across state BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 529

The majority of corn and soybean crops in the state and in the Sauk Valley have been harvested, and the results have been good. On Nov. 8, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agriculture Statistics Service will release a crop production report, which will include yield forecasts, but state and local experts say the harvest has been better than expected. Gunnar Ortgiesen, CFO and general manager of Tettens Grain LLC in Sterling, said farmers have been pleasantly surprised by their corn yields, which he estimated at 180 to 220 bushels an acre in this area. “For beans, [yields are] a little better than expected a few months back,” he said. “I’d still put it in the 50- to 60-an-acre [range], some hitting 65.” Many of the private, national corn yield estimates have been 162 bushels an acre, Ortgiesen said.

Crop production report will be released Nov. 8 HARVEST

CONTINUED FROM A1

Corn yields across the state have been high, said Emerson Nafziger, a professor of crop sciences at the Univerity of Illinois. The univerity has collected yield data from 12 fields across the state, including in Erie, Mount Morris and DeKalb, and has seen yields of more than 200 and some as high as 290. While he hasn’t seen the university’s soybean data yet, Nafziger said he’s heard yields have been better than expected, which is positive considering the late planting and hot, dry conditions experienced in August and September. Putting that dry weather into perspective, he said it probably contributed to only a “small amount of stress.� “The soybean story is very similar to the corn story,� Nafziger said. “In some ways, even more surprising than the corn story. ... What I have seen is pretty encourag-

ing, just in the fact that I thought we’d be lucky to have 35 to 40 [bushels] an acre.� According to the USDA’s weekly crop progress report, 74 percent of Illinois corn and 85 percent of Illinois soybeans have been harvested. In the northwestern part of the state, which includes the Sauk Valley, 66 percent of corn and 93 percent of soybeans have been harvested. Most area farmers have 1 to 2 weeks of harvesting left, Ortgiesen said. The Nov. 8 crop production report will give an indication about whether yields remain on pace for record highs, which have been estimated by the USDA. While high yields are good, it means farmers will get paid less for each bushel, as prices fall on the commodity markets. “I would say they’re happy with corn yield, not very happy with the price,� Ortgiesen said. “I think everyone has been pretty happy with the harvest here.�

“Teachers have been absolutely wonderful about it,� he said. The drop in ratings over the past year at Merrill Elementary, A r i c k x said, was because the school is now f o c u s ing on the common core Dan Arickx standards, which are being applied nationally and focus on math and reading. As such, he said, the district is shifting attention away from the ISAT exam, which is the basis for the ratings. Overall, the high schools in Sauk Valley’s smaller towns have higher ratings than those in Sterling, Dixon and Rock Falls. This year, 57 percent of Sterling High School students are rated as proficient in reading and math. Dixon and Rock Falls high schools follow at 54 and 53 percent, respectively. Morrison is tops in the area with a 68 percent proficiency in its high school. Amboy, Erie and River Bend are tied at 67 percent, while AFC follows with 62 percent.

Prophetstown-Lyndon-Tampico trails at 46 percent among the smaller school districts. But it also has the highest number of low-income students, with 47 percent. At the same time, its elementary schools’ ratings are about the same as the other smaller districts – and, in some cases, higher. One challenge in the P-L-T district is that it has a higher mobility rate – 18 percent – than the other smaller districts. That rate tracks students who transfer in and out of the district from the first day of October to David the last day Rogers of school. The lowincome and mobility rates “explain a lot of things,� P-L-T Superintendent David Rogers said. In the past couple of years, he said, the district has put in place a few programs that would pay off in the next year. One of the programs is for tutoring. Another deals with homework, known as Prophet Pride. “If you don’t have your homework done, you’re not doing lunch with your friends,� Rogers said.

City gets sewer plant land Officials hope to finish $23M project in 2016 BY DAVID GIULIANI DGIULIANI SAUKVALLEYCOM    EXT

MORRISON – The city has completed the purchase of land for its new sewer plant, but it will be years before residents see a finished facility. “Now, the work begins,� Mayor Everett Pannier said. Over the next few years, residents will see big hikes in their sewer bills to pay for the plant, which is expected to cost $23 million. As are many cities, Morrison is building a new plant to meet environ-

mental regulations. Officials figured it made more sense to build a new plant than to fix the old one. The city first considered building the wastewater treatment plant at Waterworks Park, but neighbors protested, saying it would hurt their property values. After Pannier became mayor in May, he started looking for other sites. Over the summer, the city struck a deal to buy 30

’’

acres on the west side of state Route 78, just south of the Morrison Institute of Technology. It was owned by the Wilkens estate. The price tag was $439,000. The property also includes a house. “We will sell the house,� the mayor said. “It’s a matter of when. We’re not in a really big hurry. Do we offer a house with 3 or 4 acres that we won’t

be using for the plant?� The city’s engineers already have planned the project, Pannier said, but now they will need to do a site-specific blueprint. No complaints about the site have emerged during public discussions. Pannier said he met with the board of the Morrison Institute of Technology to answer questions. “I will be back visiting with them to tell them what we are doing,� he said. “There was a hue and cry a year ago about the [Waterworks] location. We have remediated it.� An official from the institute couldn’t be reached for comment. The city hopes to start construction in spring 2015 and finish by mid2016, Everett said.

Sheriff sheds weight, feels great Tough love got lawman to change lifestyle BY NICOLE HARBOUR $ECATUR (ERALDAND2EVIEW

DECATUR (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Macon County Sheriff Thomas Schneider has struggled with his weight for years, but about a year ago, he made a big decision that changed his life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I started on the [sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s] department [in 1988] at 6 foot 5, 245 pounds, working out two to three times a day and just enjoying being a law enforcement officer,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I had lost probably about 50 pounds to become a cop.â&#x20AC;? A basketball player in high school, Schneider enjoyed being active, but as he started his family and became a deputy sheriff in 1990, his lifestyle began to change, he explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a family,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and then everything became more sedentary. Everything was about working extra, and unfortunately, in my line of work, the working extra was basically confined to either a squad car seat or a desk chair, so I gained the weight.â&#x20AC;? Working in an administrative position and then becoming sheriff in 2007, Schneider said it became easy to go from meeting to meeting

He began a weight loss journey Oct. 1, 2012, through a medically monitored weight-loss program. He is currently maintaining a weight loss of 130 pounds. without doing anything active in between. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In 1993, my wife, Amy, and I had our son, Alex, and I had to take on a second job to provide for my family,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when I really started to notice the weight gain. Once I was providing for my family, I became comfortable and started to relax. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put the emphasis on cardio anymore, just lifting weights.â&#x20AC;? As the weight began to add up, Schneider said it began to hinder his ability to do things with his son. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I ran the Junior Football League at Meridian and coached my son in all his activities, and there were times that my weight limited me,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But my son was

able to give me tough love when he needed to.â&#x20AC;? By last fall, however, Schneider, 46, said he knew he had to do something to address the weight. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew all along that I needed to lose weight,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had high blood pressure, and my doctors had been telling me I needed to lose weight throughout my life . but my son Alex was the person who made me want to lose weight. Everybody else accepted me â&#x20AC;&#x201C; my wife, she accepted me and encouraged me to lose weight. My mother and father and brother and sister have wanted me to lose weight for health reasons, but my son pretty much just looked at me and said,

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Dad, come on, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s go do something and get going.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;And when you have your son telling you that, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not your son telling you youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fat and you need to lose weight; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your son telling you, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Dad, I want you to be there for me down the road,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and I could not overlook him encouraging me in the manner that he did. It chokes you up a little bit.â&#x20AC;? Turning to Physicianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice Wellness LLC, a medically monitored weight-loss program, Schneider began his weight loss journey Oct. 1, 2012, and today, weighing 130 pounds less, said he feels like an entirely new person. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like a million dollars,â&#x20AC;? he said, smiling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I chose Physicianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice Wellness as a healthy way to lose weight. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy for me to lose weight but hard to maintain it; but they help me stay on top of it.â&#x20AC;? Utilizing a liquid diet, which allows him to receive his daily nutrients in the form of a supplement, Schneider said the program has worked for him because it gives him a variety of options. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can have my supplement as a shake, but I could also have it as a muffin or a soup,â&#x20AC;? he said. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m able to have four meals a day, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very easy and fulfilling.â&#x20AC;?

Police to have $93 million in overtime CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy says the department expects to spend $93 million on overtime this year. McCarthy on Thursday appeared before the Chicago City Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget committee. He said the overtime was due to

the creation of Operation Impact, a program that floods Chicagoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 20 most violent crime zones with police. McCarthy said he expects the city wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be paying as much overtime next year because new police recruits paid straight-time are replacing veteran officers

working overtime. The superintendent said 502 police officers have been hired this year, with more on the way. He added the department will remain at the authorized strength of 12,538 despite 450 retirements expected next year. McCarthy also point-

SPRINGFIELD (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Two county jails in southern Illinois are allowing inmates to use electronic cigarettes, and other counties are considering it. Jails often ban inmates from smoking cigarettes, but White County and Saline County are letting inmates use the nicotine-infused vapor inhalers. Officials in Franklin, Wabash and Williamson counties also are deciding if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll let inmates use electronic cigarettes, also known as e-cigarettes. Jails in other states are using the e-cigarettes to raise money for jail programs. White County jail administrator Randy Cobb said the experiment has slowed contraband and raised inmate morale. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a trend all counties will eventually adopt,â&#x20AC;? Cobb told Lee Enterprises newspapers.

Saline County jail administrator Brian Bennett says there havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been any problems at his Harrisburg lockup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Initially I was against it,â&#x20AC;? Bennett said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen any issues with it so far.â&#x20AC;? The Illinois Department of Corrections bars the product from being sold at prison commissaries. IDOC spokesman Tom Shaer said that policy â&#x20AC;&#x153;is likely to remain in place.â&#x20AC;? The American Lung Association in Illinois says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;deeply troubledâ&#x20AC;? by jails using e-cigarettes to make money. It said in a statement that it â&#x20AC;&#x153;urges county leaders to find an alternate way to support the jail, one that does not jeopardize the health of both inmates and staff.â&#x20AC;? Earlier this year, Gov. Pat Quinn signed legislation that bans selling e-cigarettes to minors.

As chairman of the board of directors and former president and CEO of Raynor Worldwide, he represented the second generation of Neisewander leadership for the family-owned garage door manufacturer. After working his way up the Raynor ladder, he took the management reins from his father, Ray Sr., in 1979. At that point, Raynor did $30 million a year in business. By 2000, Neis-

SPRINGFIELD â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Will the real Pat Quinn stand up? One of the trademarks of the old pot-stirring Pat Quinn â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the one who existed before he became governor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is you knew where he stood. You may not have always liked that rabblerouserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s positions, but his resoluteness was admirable. Today? Not so much. Take a look at how Quinn handled an interview with another reporter who dared to ask about whether the governor supports keeping the â&#x20AC;&#x153;temporaryâ&#x20AC;? 67 percent income tax hike: QUINN: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, I think we have to deal with the pension reform, which is the No. 1 fiscal, financial issue.â&#x20AC;? REPORTER: â&#x20AC;&#x153;But ... you campaigned on raising the income tax; should it stay in place?â&#x20AC;? QUINN: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have worked very hard on pension reform, I know the committee that I proposed ...â&#x20AC;? In journalism, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we call a nonanswer. Voters deserve to know where their chief executive â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who is seeking reelection â&#x20AC;&#x201C; stands on one of the most important issues facing the state of Illinois. But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re left in the dark. I liked the old Pat Quinn better. That Pat Quinn wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ashamed to take a position. Apparently, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the case anymore. And his habits are rubbing off on the aides reporting to him. TODAY, HIS OFFICE packs in more flip-flops than a group of college spring-breakers heading to South Padre Island. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe me? A few weeks ago, I asked all of the gubernatorial candidates where they stood on a constitutional amendment being promoted by GOP hopeful Bruce Rauner. The measure would limit the terms of state lawmakers, reduce the number of senators, and slightly increase the number of House members. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how a Quinn spokesman responded to my queries: Me: â&#x20AC;&#x153;So I could say he [Quinn] opposes the amendment as currently written because it

includes expanding the size of the House?â&#x20AC;? Spokesman: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes.â&#x20AC;? That would seem a straightforward and unambiguous answer. You can read the full email exchange on ilnews.org. But after my article was published, another Quinn aide started telling newspaper editors that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t what was said. When I got wind of this, I filed a Freedom of Information Act request for his emails to find out just what was Gov. Pat said. Quinn It turns out, the administration was falsely claiming that it had never made a statement that it had. I LIKE TO GIVE people the benefit of the doubt. After all, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible the original spokesman misspoke, or the governor changed his position. Or perhaps there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t adequate communication between two spokesmen. So I asked Quinn spokesman Abdon Pallasch to clarify where the governor stands on the amendment. He declined. So, at the end of the day, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where the governor stands on two important issues: whether the tax hike should be made permanent, or where he stands on a proposed constitutional amendment creating term limits for lawmakers. The people of Illinois deserve to know where candidates stand on issues. Without this information, voters canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make informed decisions. When the administration chooses obfuscation, it shows contempt not only for the voters, but also for our democratic system. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the people of Illinois deserve better?

LOOMINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A program and special decorations will bring an 1870s Thanksgiving celebration into the spotlight at the David Davis Mansion Historic Site. David Davis was a U.S. Supreme Court justice, appointed by Abraham Lincoln in 1862. He and his wife, Sarah, built the house in 1872. It has 36 rooms, an 1850s barn, a garden, a woodhouse, a shed, privies, and a carriage barn on 4.1 acres. The home became a National Historic Landmark in 1975, and is open to the public. The 45-minute tours are conducted by guides every half-hour between 9:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. from the visitor center. There is a bonus for touring in November. Saturday, â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Bountiful Feastâ&#x20AC;? will reveal what life was like for servants in Victorian days, at the same time nonpublic parts of the mansion are open to the curious.

Nurse navigators help guide expectant couples Program began about a year ago BLOOMINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; If pregnancy, labor, delivery and postpartum care are a journey, then OSF St. Joseph Medical Center is providing experienced guides. The hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OB (obstetrics) Nurse Navigator Program is St. Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s effort to have obstetrical nurses work with mothers- and fathers-to-be throughout pregnancy and after delivery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The intent is not to replace the physician but to provide a go-to person from the front line who can answer questions along the way and be a friendly face that moms can recognize when they come up to deliver,â&#x20AC;?

said Shauna Bivens, a St. Joseph OB charge nurse and among six nurse navigators at the hospital. Dr. Barry Slotky, an obstetrician-gynecologist, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know whether any of his patients have used the program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I think the idea â&#x20AC;&#x201C; better communication with the patient â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is excellent, especially for firsttime moms and dads who have a number of different questions that may be answered by the nurse advocate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Patients may have a lot of questions and it may be difficult to get answers from the doc,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they have a contact person who can provide medically appropriate information, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great.â&#x20AC;? The nurse navigator may tell the patient that

what sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experiencing is expected and may advise the patient to call her doctor. Either way, â&#x20AC;&#x153;patients get their questions resolved in a timely fashion,â&#x20AC;? Slotky said. The program began about a year ago. Of 896 women who had babies at St. Joseph in the past year, 125 used nurse navigators, Bivens said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, our goal is to increase that number,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The patients

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve talked with really love it.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Navigation in nursing in general is an up-andcoming topic,â&#x20AC;? she said. Other departments that have nurse navigators in hospitals in some parts of the country include oncology and surgery, Bivens said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Patients are getting smarter,â&#x20AC;? Bivens said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They want to be more involved in their health care and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing. They want to ask

questions and navigation facilitates that. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The nurses all really love it,â&#x20AC;? she continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really get to know the patients and become a small part of their family. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m as excited for them as some of their friends are. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a better experience for the nurses and patients both.â&#x20AC;? The free program is open to any expectant mother. To register or get more information, go to www.osfstjoseph.

org/birth or at 309-6654704. Women donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to have their child at St. Joseph, but most do. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The goal is for them to deliver here for continuity of care,â&#x20AC;? Bivens said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The biggest benefit is to patients who have complications or are ill at ease,â&#x20AC;? Bivens said. The goal is for the first meeting with the nurse navigator to happen about 20 weeks into the pregnancy.

Mom caught between boyfriend and son Dear Abby: I have been divorced 5 years and have five children, ranging in age from 23 to 8. When I was having trouble with my middle son, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Logan,â&#x20AC;? I found help from his godfather, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Carl.â&#x20AC;? I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen Carl in years. He was my exâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best friend when Logan was born. Long story short, Carl and I have been in a committed relationship for 2 years now. He has been more a part of our lives than my ex has. Four of my kids love Carl, and he is very involved in their lives. Logan, however, hates him and throws a fit if his name

of it and refuses to listen. Carl and I mainly spend time together on the weekends we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have our kids, or meet for lunch or breakfast. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m at a loss. Logan is now 17. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to lose Carl. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great man and wants whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best for me and the kids. What should I do? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Pulled in Two Directions in Canada

is mentioned. I have tried to explain that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t intend this to happen, but Logan feels I â&#x20AC;&#x153;took away his godfather from him.â&#x20AC;? Carl is still there for him, but Logan will have none

Dear Pulled in Two Directions: Logan may be 17, but he is acting like a child. Do not let his behavior discourage you from having a life. In another year he will be 18

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and either concentrating on finishing his education or finding a job. Logan needs to realize that he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x153;lostâ&#x20AC;? a godfather, and that everyone may eventually be gaining a stepdad. He also needs to understand that if he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accept it, he will find himself odd man out in an otherwise healthy, happy and functional family. Dear Abby: My boyfriend of 5 years, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Todd,â&#x20AC;? is a daily pot smoker. We met during our senior year of college, and I knew he smoked. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use drugs,

and I assumed that after college he would grow up. However, it seems unlikely that he will quit, and frankly, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sick of it. I have asked Todd for the last 4 years to please stop, but he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. He keeps saying he will, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how much longer I want to wait. I know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unfair to expect to change someone, but I would not be comfortable getting engaged or married to Todd if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still getting stoned. I love him. Should I give it more time or move on? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Patient Girlfriend in San Diego

Dear Girlfriend: You have been patient enough. If Todd had any intention of quitting, it would have happened already. Four years of procrastination are enough. Because you feel so strongly about this, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to move on because your boyfriend is not going to change. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www. DearAbby.com or P.O.

AUDITOR GENERAL REPORT

State property inventory lacks basic details Required master list of properties does not exist SPRINGFIELD (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Illinois agency that keeps track of all taxpayer property has such a poor listing of it that it includes only one of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nine universities and omits one-quarter of the Prairie Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 130 parks, according to an audit released Thursday. Auditor General William Holland credited Gov. Pat Quinnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department of Central Management Services for reducing state leasing costs by $55 million a year, but even there, criticized the agency for not regularly checking for more efficient ways of using space and renting property

without looking at it. The audit said state law requires CMS to have a master list of all properties it manages. Of more than three dozen agencies listed on what CMS called a â&#x20AC;&#x153;master list,â&#x20AC;? there were only 1,789 entries â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;a fraction of the total,â&#x20AC;? Holland said. A CMS spokesman said the information exists, but whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lacking is a central depository, which is too costly. The master list includes no office spaces for the attorney general, the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, Juvenile Justice and others. In fact, only two sites were listed for the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flagship educational center, the University of Illinois, and none was listed for eight other

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;

The record was so deficient that it raised the question of whether the list was, in fact, the master record. Auditor General William Holland

universities, including behemoths Northern Illinois University or Illinois State. The Department of Natural Resources had 529 sites listed, but 33 parks were left off. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The record was so deficient that it raised the question of whether the list was, in fact, the master record,â&#x20AC;? Holland said. The review noted that CMS had made no significant progress on an automated system to keep track of property

â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

since the agency ended a contract with a vendor hired to do it 8 years ago. That was Illinois Property Asset Management, a company at the center of a notorious Holland audit that found significant problems at CMS under ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich in April 2005, including taxpayers footing a dinner for IPAM and state employees to celebrate landing the contract. â&#x20AC;&#x153;CMS has a master record of annual reports

from all agencies and universities. What we do not have is a centralized database that compiles the information from all these reports,â&#x20AC;? CMS spokesman Mike Claffey said. After the IPAM debacle, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;it was determined that the cost of attempting another procurement to create such a database would greatly exceed the benefit to taxpayers.â&#x20AC;? But Claffey said Quinnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s administration nonetheless undertook a massive review of leased space, and Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s audit determined that CMS had reduced it since 2009 by 26 percent, to 6.9 million square feet. Annual rental costs dropped by $55 million through consolidation, renegotiation with landlords and new bids.

The review credited the oversight of the independent Procurement Policy Board for objecting to leases that seemed inappropriate. A reduced state workforce and more favorable real estate climate have helped, too. But it found CMS officials do not regularly visit leased space to see how it is used or whether thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s room for more state operations. The audit reported that one CMS official said site visits were formerly done annually but are now done â&#x20AC;&#x153;on a reactionary basis.â&#x20AC;? In 17 of 25 lease files reviewed, there was no evidence of anyone checking the availability of state-owned space. In six of 25 leases examined, there was no record of a site visit prior to renting the space.

ILLINOIS GENERAL ASSEMBLY

Momentum builds for possible vote on gay marriage Legislature will meet next week CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; After months of energetic lobbying, both sides in the Illinois same-sex marriage debate are ready for a vote next week that supporters say would fulfill a pledge by the sponsor to bring the issue back to Springfield. Anticipating a likely vote during the final week of the veto session, some lawmakers previously on the fence have announced their position on the question. Others are quickly drafting proposed changes so they can support the bill. More activists are calling for immediate action. And even opponents are planning for fallout ahead of the campaign season. One legislator who firmed up his support is state Rep. Al Riley, an Olympia Fields Democrat whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been hesitant to discuss his position publicly. He told The Associated Press heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now a â&#x20AC;&#x153;yes.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not in the business of discriminating against people,â&#x20AC;? he said. The road to â&#x20AC;&#x153;good public policy is that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk about it all the damn time.â&#x20AC;? The home state of Presi-

dent Barack Obama has been surprisingly resistant to same-sex marriage, even with Democrats leading the House, Senate and governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office. The Senate passed the measure on Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t called for a vote in the House because state Rep. Greg Harris, the sponsor, said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the 60 needed votes. In the waning hours of the spring session in May, he gave a tearful speech saying heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d give his colleagues more time and vowed to bring up the bill again.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m feeling good. Things are moving in the right direction.

â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

State Rep. Greg Harris, D-Chicago

NOW, THOSE ON both sides are gearing up for it next week, when lawmakers return to Springfield. And without much progress so far on other high profile issues like pensions, their focus is magnified. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have done everything we could to help ensure Greg Harrisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; promise to the people of the state of Illinois: Their representatives would go home to their districts and come back and vote on the bill,â&#x20AC;? said John Kohlhepp, a union lobbyist hired to lead the samesex marriage campaign. Backers of the legislation wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t discuss vote tallies, saying itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too fluid. But those close to

the bill appear to have a little more confidence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m feeling good,â&#x20AC;? said Harris, a Chicago Democrat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Things are moving in the right direction.â&#x20AC;? He said the number of states allowing same-sex marriage has continued to climb: currently there are 14 plus Washington, D.C. Also, the U.S. Supreme Courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision over the summer to strike down a provision of the federal Defense of Marriage Act has added to the momentum, Harris said. Aside from Riley, others have voiced support. State Rep. Emanuel Chris Welch, a Hillside Democrat who waivered, said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now solidly in favor. He said he sees it as a civil rights issue. Opponents have vowed to line up primary challenges to lawmakers who vote in favor. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the case for both Republicans whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve said they support the measure â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Rep. Ron Sandack of Down-

der at Starved Rock State Park. The (Ottawa) Daily Times reports the board voted 7-7 on Chester Wegerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request for parole. The 74-year-old needed eight votes to

be granted parole. Weger was convicted in OFKILLING,ILLIAN/ETting, who was bludgeoned to death at the park. Weger is currently an inmate at Pinckneyville Correctional Center.

State Rep. Greg Harris, D-Chicago, speaks in the House chamber at the state Capitol in Springfield, Oct. 23. Harris is the House sponsor of Senate Bill 10, which would create the Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act. ers Grove and Rep. Ed Sullivan Jr. of Mundelein â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and potential Chicago area Democrats. Bishop Larry Trotter of Sweet Holy Spirit Church and his coalition of African American pastors

around the Chicago area have spoken out against same-sex marriage with aggressive robocall and radio ads. He said the group, which argues marriage should remain between a man and a woman, has started lining up challengers, though he declined to name any. Candidates who want to run for office face an early December petition deadline. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have some very serious candidates who are going to run in several of these districts,â&#x20AC;? Trotter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come to church with our support and then go and vote [against our interests] in Springfield.â&#x20AC;? However, some gay rights activists also have been divided. A handful picketed Harrisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; office last week, calling for an immediate vote out of the belief that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mere politics preventing a vote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels like somewhat of a betrayal. This is a man who is one of us,â&#x20AC;? Kelly Imgrund of the Gay Liberation Network said of Harris, who is openly gay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been mum on everything.â&#x20AC;? The push for gay marriage began after Illinois legalized civil unions in 2011. Over the summer, the campaign included efforts to recruit more

Republicans, though no more have come forward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having discrete conversations,â&#x20AC;? said Pat Brady, the former head of the Illinois Republican Party who was hired to lobby Republicans.

are meeting at the Normal school this week. Simon visited all four dozen Illinois community colleges and 12 public universities to put together the guide.

STILL, SOME Democrats have also been reluctant to endorse same-sex marriage. State Rep. Fred Crespo, Democrat from Hoffman Estates, said he was leaning â&#x20AC;&#x153;no,â&#x20AC;? until this week when he made up his mind. He said he was torn as a practicing Catholic who also has a lot of gay friends. He said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s keeping his decision to himself until the vote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m at peace with my decision,â&#x20AC;? Crespo said. State Rep. Anthony DeLuca, a Chicago Heights Democrat, said it is by far the top issue constituents and advocacy groups have contacted him about. He said some of the advocatesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; arguments â&#x20AC;&#x201C; particularly equality for families â&#x20AC;&#x201C; have been convincing but he wants to amend the bill to add more protections for church groups. Harris said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not interested in altering the bill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are very strong opinions on both sides Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m taking it all in,â&#x20AC;? DeLuca said.

Israel strikes Russian weapons shipment Government meets key deadline on plan to eliminate chemical weapons BEIRUT (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Israeli warplanes attacked a shipment of Russian missiles inside a Syrian government stronghold, officials said Thursday, a development that threatened to add another volatile layer to regional tensions from the Syrian civil war. The revelation came as the government of President Bashar Assad met a key deadline in an ambitious plan to eliminate Syriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entire chemical weapons stockpile by mid-2014 and avoid international military action. The announcement by a global chemical weapons watchdog that the country has completed the destruction of equipment used to produce the deadly agents highlights Assadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s willing-

ness to cooperate, and puts more pressure on the divided and outgunned rebels to attend a planned peace conference. An Obama administration official confirmed the Israeli airstrike overnight, but provided no details. Another security official said the attack occurred late Wednesday in the Syrian port city of Latakia and that the target was Russian-made SA-125 missiles. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the attack. There was no immediate confirmation from Syria. Since the civil war in Syria began in March 2011, Israel has carefully

The Syrian military, overstretched by the

civil war, has not retaliated, and it was not clear whether the embattled Syrian leader would choose to take action this time. Assad may decide

to again let the Israeli attack slide, particularly when his army has the upper hand on the battlefield inside Syria. Israel has repeatedly

declared a series of red lines that could trigger Israeli military intervention, including the delivery of â&#x20AC;&#x153;game-changingâ&#x20AC;? weapons to the Syrian-backed Lebanese Hezbollah group. Israel has never officially confirmed taking action inside Syria to avoid embarrassing Assad and sparking a potential response. But foreign officials say it has done so several times when Israeli intelligence determined that sophisticated missiles were on the move. In January, an Israeli airstrike in Syria destroyed a shipment of advanced anti-aircraft missiles bound for Hezbollah, according to U.S. officials. And in May, it was said to have acted again, taking out a shipment of Iranianmade Fateh-110 missiles at a Damascus airport.

Official: 92 African migrants found dead in Sahara desert

Leader: Terror â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;found a second chanceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Trucks broke down, trapping passengers DAKAR, Senegal (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Nearly 100 African migrants hoping to escape crushing poverty met a grisly end in the desert, officials said Thursday, dying of thirst under the baking sun after their two trucks broke down in the middle of the Sahara before reaching Algeria. It took weeks for authorities to learn of the tragedy and for recovery teams to reach the distant site, where they found a gruesome scene including the remains of 52 children and 33 women. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was horrific. We found badly decomposing bodies and others that had been eaten by jackals,â&#x20AC;? said Almoustapha Alhacen, the head of a nonprofit organization in northern Niger that helped bury the bodies and who was at the site Wednesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We found the bodies of small children who were huddled beside their dead mothers.â&#x20AC;? The victims were spread out across a 12-mile radius, suggesting they had set off on foot but failed to head in the direction of the Algerian border just 6 miles away, he added. The tragedy is the latest to shed light on the perils of illegal migration. In early October, at least 365 migrants drowned when a boat capsized near the Italian island of Lampedusa, which is closer to North Africa than to the European mainland.

Volunteers and officials dig graves to inter the bodies of migrants who died of thirst after their the truck they were traveling in, seen rear, broke down while attempting to cross the Sahara Desert north of Arlit, Niger. Nearly 100 African migrants hoping to escape crushing poverty met a grisly end in the desert, officials said Thursday, dying of thirst under the baking sun after their truck broke down in Niger not far from the Algerian border. The migrants in Niger had begun their journey late last month in two trucks and were being smuggled along a wellestablished trafficking route to neighboring Algeria, said Col. Garba Makido the governor of Nigerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Agadez province, south of where the bodies were found. From Algeria, many continue on in hopes of crossing from North Africa to southern Europe. While nearly all who take this desert route are economic migrants, it was not immediately clear why so many women and children were among the victims. Officials were alerted to the migrant deaths only when a lone woman managed to stumble out of the desert into the Nige-

rien town of Arlit earlier this month. The next day, a father walking with his two young daughters also arrived. But his children perished of thirst just a few kilometers (miles) outside Arlit, Makido said. A total of 92 people died and 21 survived, most of whom made their way to towns at the Algerian border. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a true tragedy,â&#x20AC;? the governor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The prosecutor has opened an investigation and we plan to do everything we can to find the truck drivers.â&#x20AC;? First word of the disaster came Monday when officials reported that 35 people died but the death toll rose when more bodies were recovered from the desert.

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Terrorists â&#x20AC;&#x153;found a second chanceâ&#x20AC;? to thrive in Iraq, the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prime minister said Thursday in asking for new U.S. aid to beat back a bloody insurgency that has been fueled by the neighboring Syrian civil war and the departure of American troops from Iraq two years ago. Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki told a packed auditorium at the U.S. Institute of Peace that he needs additional weapons, help with intelligence and other assistance, and claimed the world has a responsibility to help because terrorism is an international concern.

President Barack Obama had campaigned on ending the nearly nineyear war in Iraq and took the opportunity offered by the legal dispute to pull all troops out. Nearly 4,500 U.S. troops were killed in Iraq between the 2003 invasion and the 2011 withdrawal. More than 100,000 Iraqi were killed in that time.

AIR TRAVEL

FAA OKs passengers using gadgets on planes Talking on cellphones still forbidden WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Airline passengers will be able to use their electronic devices gate-to-gate to read, work, play games, watch movies and listen to music â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but not talk on their cellphones â&#x20AC;&#x201C; under much-anticipated guidelines issued Thursday by the Federal Aviation Administration. But passengers shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect changes to happen right away, FAA Administrator

Michael Huerta said at a news conference. How fast the change is implemented will vary by airline, he said. Airlines will have to show the FAA how their airplanes meet the new guidelines and that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve updated their flight-crew training manuals, safety announcements and rules for stowing devices to reflect the new guidelines. Delta and JetBlue said they would immediately submit plans to implement the new policy. Currently, passengers are required to turn off their smartphones, tablets and other devices

once a planeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s door closes. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not supposed to restart them until the planes reach 10,000 feet and the captain gives the go-ahead. Passengers are supposed to turn their devices off again as the plane descends to land and not restart them until the plane is on the ground. Under the new guidelines, airlines whose planes are properly protected from electronic interference may allow passengers to use the devices during takeoffs, landings and taxiing, the FAA said. Most new airliners and other planes that have been modi-

fied so that passengers can use Wifi at higher altitudes are expected to meet the criteria. But connecting to the Internet to surf, exchange emails, text or download data will still be prohibited below 10,000 feet. Passengers will be told to switch their devices to airplane mode. That means no Words With Friends, the online Scrabble-type game that actor Alec Baldwin was playing on his smartphone in 2011 when he was famously booted off an American Airlines jet for refusing to turn off the device while the plane was parked at the gate.

A passenger checks his cellphone while boarding a flight in Boston, Thursday. The Federal Aviation Administration issued new guidelines Thursday, under which passengers will be able to use devices to read, work, play games, watch movies, and listen to music, from the time they board until the time they leave the plane.

How little it costs to take someone to lunch, or to leave an extra dollar or two on top of the standard tip.These small things do not go unnoticed,and they improve the quality of our lives and the lives of those we touch.When was the last time [I FSYKLX žS[IVW JSV XLI VIceptionst secretary where we work, or brought donuts to share with co-workers, or simply made cookies to share with family or friends? Although these are minor things, they spread happiness way out of proportion to the effort expended. And quite interestingly we will most likely never regret having given a generous tip or sharing a meal with someone.And, spreading the wealth doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to cost a thing. We can give a compliment or ask someone how their day was, and then really listen to their response. When was the last time we complimented our husband or wife on the way they were dressed or the tastiness of a meal they prepared? When was the last time we invited a neighbor over for dinner? There are a thousand different ways to â&#x20AC;&#x153;spread the wealth,â&#x20AC;? and each one will undoubtedly make us richer than what we give away. O divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. - St. Francis of Assisi

HEALTH CARE OVERHAUL

Cities in red states push federal insurance plan Local officials working to sign up residents HOUSTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The scene in a city-owned building may look like a hurricane has swept through Houston: Nurses giving vaccine shots, people scurrying around with files and papers and officials leaning over computers helping blearyeyed parents fill out forms as their children munch on free pretzels. But this is no hurricane. Instead, it is Houstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offensive to reach more than 1 million people across 600 square miles who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have health

insurance and connect them with the new federal health insurance program that began accepting applications this month. The push is happening in one of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reddest states, an example of the gap between the vitriolic political opposition to President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature initiative in some conservative bastions and the actual response to it by local officials. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the same strategy we use to respond to hurricanes and public health disasters,â&#x20AC;? said Stephen Williams, director of Houstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department of Health and Human Services, who has organized an effort to sign up as many unin-

sured people as possible. Republican governors and legislatures in about two dozen states are refusing cooperation with the roll-out of the health overhaul, but some local governments are trying to fill the gap, working with nonprofit organizations, hospitals and churches leading the outreach. After receiving only about $600,000 in federal grant money, Williams put together a 13-county coordinating group with other organizations so they could pool funds, resources and data. He also invested about $600,000 from his own budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you live in Harris County and in the city of

Houston you are footing the bill for people that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have insurance,â&#x20AC;? Williams said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Regardless of all the rhetoric that is going on, people have better access to care when they are insured.â&#x20AC;? In Harris County, which paid $585 million this year to treat the uninsured in public hospitals and clinics, about 300 county employees have been trained to assist in the enrollment process. The city has provided staff, office space, laptops, air cards and cellphones. A seven-person call center partly funded by the city fields questions about the program, which aims to register recipients by Dec. 15.

BUDGET BATTLE

Rep. Ryan strikes collaborative tone Hopes to restore public confidence

future â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is he maneuvering for a House leadership position or for a 2016 presidential campaign? The 43-year-old Wisconsin congressmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s remarks and actions in coming weeks also could signal which side of the ideologicalpragmatic divide he favors â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or whether he can straddle both sides â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at a time U.S. Rep. of deep rifts Paul Ryan within the R-Wis. Republican Party between tea party conservatives and more business-friendly, establishment Republicans. As he usually does, Ryan is warning against drawing any political inferences from his words or actions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand me,â&#x20AC;? Ryan said recently in an interview with The Associated Press. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Look, I am not sitting in my home or in my office thinking about â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;How does this help my personal political career years down the road?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I am literally thinking about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best way I can do my job today.â&#x20AC;?

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; To hear Rep. Paul Ryan tell it, a bipartisan group of congressional negotiators has the chance to take the first steps toward fixing a serious problem: a debt-ridden federal government facing an onslaught of retiring baby boomers draining entitlement programs. If successful, â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll restore confidence in Washington,â&#x20AC;? Ryan said this week at the start of House-Senate budget talks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bar is pretty low right now. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s see if we can clear it.â&#x20AC;? The 2012 Republican vice presidential nominee seemed to suggest a collaborative approach as he started formal talks with Democrats intended to reach a budget agreement by mid-December. The panel could be pivotal in avoiding another government shutdown in January when money is slated to run out again and a debt default in February. From now until a deal is reached, how Ryan comports himself could offer clues about his political

RELAX WE USE CARFAX

AP

Trader Steven Kaplan works Thursday on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. Stocks edged lower in early trading on Wall Street Thursday, paring the marketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big gain for October.

No October jinx for stock market Market climed even higher after shutdown NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; October, with its history of big crashes on Wall Street, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t scare off investors this time. To the contrary, the stock market seemed unstoppable. The Standard & Poorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 500 index closed at a record high seven times and ended the month up 4.5 percent. The market climbed even after October began with the 16-day government shutdown and the threat of a potentially calamitous U.S. default. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The market didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t waver in the face of the shutdown,â&#x20AC;? said Anton Bayer, CEO of Up Capital Management, an investment adviser. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was huge.â&#x20AC;? After being rattled by a series of down-to-thewire budget battles in recent years, investors have become inured to the ways of Washington lawmakers. Instead of selling stocks, they kept

their focus on what they say really matters: the Federal Reserve. The central bank is buying $85 billion of bonds every month and keeping its benchmark short-term interest rate near zero to promote economic growth. The Fed stimulus has helped generate a stock market rally that has been going on since March 2009. With Octoberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gains, the S&P 500 is now up 23.2 percent for the year and is on track for its best year since 2009. The Dow Jones industrial average is 18.6 percent higher, and the Nasdaq composite index is up 29.8 percent. The S&P 500 has climbed 160 percent since bottoming out at 676.53 in March 2009 during the Great Recession. Some analysts say the precipitous rise in stocks may now make the market vulnerable to a drop.

PAW PAW – Kayci Howell couldn’t help but laugh as she discussed two of her highlights in Newman’s 25-21, 22-25, 25-14 victory over AFC on Tuesday in the 1A Paw Paw Regional title match. There was the second-hit tip-kill in the first set, an example of her expert decision-making when a pass draws her into the net. Howell giggled when asked about the crafty play, her second tip-kill in three points – both off Allison Shipman assists – that capped a 4-0 burst and gave the Comets (21-13) a 21-13 lead.

Sterling players celebrate a point during Thursday’s 3A Stillman Valley Regional championship game against Belvidere. The Warriors won the title in two sets, 25-21, 25-9. BY DAN WOESSNER dwoessner@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 555

STILLMAN VALLEY – To get to the 3A Stillman Valley Regional championship game, the Warriors needed the heavy hitting of Kiarra Harris and Kaylee Martin to beat Dixon in the semifinal on Tuesday. To win the regional championship against Belvidere, the Warriors took a more subtle approach. The Warriors tipped the ball over the front line of Bucs blockers repeatedly to complement their regular power offense in a 25-21, 25-9 win.

“We knew that there was a hole in the middle of their defense, so if we tipped it over, it would probably drop,” senior Brooke Williams said. “Tips might not be as exciting as the big kill, but they are just as effective.” “We have very good hitters,” Harris said. “We don’t always have to get the big kill. Sometimes the tip does just as good of a job. It’s our goal to start each set with a bang, and end each set with bang. We did that tonight.”

Star of the match: Jordyn Koett, Sterling, 9 assists, 10 service points Up next: 3A Princeton Sectional, Sterling vs. LaSalle-Peru, 6 p.m. Tuesday

Outstanding credit rating Linemen know their importance in formidable attack BY LARRY BRENNAN lbrennan@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 550

Erie-Prophetstown fullback Nick Williams has videogame numbers. Quarterback Ethan Howard and halfbacks Chris Bauer and Jordan Chandler have also carried for big yardage. Three big reasons for the Panthers’ 3,500-plus rushing yards are senior linemen Kenneth Cole, Kyle Coleman and Owen McConnell. “We love blocking for them. Most people say that linemen

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to blame Michael Wacha (center) for the Cardinals losing the World Series, even if he took the loss in Game 6. The St. Louis bats were putrid in the Series after being some of the most clutch during the regular season. Even former World Series MVP David Freese (left) hit just .158 against Boston.

The Panthersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; linemen blasting holes for their backs is a big reason the team is 7-2. over 1,000, but not this much.â&#x20AC;? The linemen get some added pressure at practice when volunteer coach Luke Coers or coach Milem play scout team quarterback. Nobody wants to mess up when a coach is right behind them. Or worse yet, injure the coach. Cole had a humorous incident

occur with coach Milem at QB during Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s practice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I stepped on his foot. He probably didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like that,â&#x20AC;? said Cole. Milem hopped around gingerly after the episode, but should be a go for Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game. McConnell has enjoyed seeing the Panthers go from one win in 2011 to five

and the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first playoff berth in a decade in 2012, and now a program-high seven wins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love the legacy that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re buidling something, and showing how hard work can pay off. Hopefully the younger guys take after us and carry on the tradition that we started.â&#x20AC;?

2A OREGON REGIONAL

BY PATRICK PETROSKY ppetrosky@saukvalley.com    EXT

LANARK â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Momentum is huge. The Erie Cardinals scored the first point of the first set and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look back during Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1A Eastland Regional championship match against the host Cougars. Erie had its fair share of opportunistic spikes and played its way to a huge 25-10 first-set victory â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a rare first-set win for a team that seems most comfortable playing from behind â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and then carried that momentum over to the second set, which it won 25-23. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a tendency to start kind of slow,â&#x20AC;? Erie coach Alicia Murphy said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that in this kind of setting, on this court, and they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.â&#x20AC;? The Cardinalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first-set victory had a few factors that added up a large lead. Senior Courtney Cobert started the team off right. First, she was flying everywhere on the court for digs. She also recorded four first-set

Although she credited the team for pumping her up, her aces got everyone going, including the already-rowdy Erie student section. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were really pumped up, and they got me pumped up,â&#x20AC;? Cobert said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My serving was really on tonight, and that was a big help.â&#x20AC;? Another factor that helped out the Cardinals (28-7-1) was Eastlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inexperience in a hugegame atmosphere. A team with a lot of underclassmen, the Cougars came out a little tight in the electric environment. This led to uncharacteristic mistakes, errors, and a loss of momentum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They came out tight, and their performance suffered because of it,â&#x20AC;? Eastland coach Kristy

Savannah Mettler Erie junior

Rachel Cobert Erie sophomore

Pierce said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m assuming they were a little rattled. Before the game, they appeared to be ready, but when we have a couple freshmen, mostly sophomores on the floor, how they react to things is something you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t predict.â&#x20AC;? Between sets, Pierce gave her players a pep talk, in an attempt to calm them down. It paid off, as the Cougars played better in the second set. The momentum shifted back and forth throughout the set, as the teams traded points. Erie had two one-point leads, and the score was tied eight times. However, momentum took the Cougarsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; side, as they had a 20-15 lead late in the set. After Eastland served a ball out, Savannah

Mettler had two monstrous kills and cut the lead to two. A Cougar timeout righted the ship, and Eastlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sydney Guetner had a block and a kill to force a Cardinal timeout, which turned the momentum back in favor of Erie. The rock-solid foundation of Rachel Cobert and Mettler stepped up late. The duo combined for six of the last seven Cardinal points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really necessary for us to play like that, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what kept us in the zone,â&#x20AC;? Rachel Cobert said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a lot of big kills because we were so fired up, and we wanted it so bad that we just took it out on every ball we hit.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody picking each other up really helped us,â&#x20AC;? Mettler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really helped knowing that our teammates were behind us and supporting us at all times.â&#x20AC;?

Blocking Fore a highlight for Howell LAUGHER

Cydney Long blocks a hit by a Rockford Lutheran player during Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2A Oregon Regional championship game. Oregon won 25-20, 25-22.

Oregon getting better with age, experience Young Crusaders no match for Hawks BY ANDY COLBERT Shaw Media

OREGON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; With a lineup heavy with talented sophomores, Rockford Lutheran looked similar to the 2012 Oregon volleyball team. In a 2A Oregon Regional final, those underclassmen were no match for a bunch of Hawks a year older and wiser. Winning its ninth regional in 11 years, Oregon defeated Lutheran 25-20, 25-22. The teams split two regular-season matches. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we came out, we wanted to feel like we were in control,â&#x20AC;? first-year Oregon coach Faith Watson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when we excel. We never felt frantic, even when they went on a couple runs.â&#x20AC;? Lutheran (20-11) got off to a 5-2 lead in the first set, but junior Emy Wright had a kill and a block to make it 5-5. Another junior, Hailey Long, had a diagonal kill to tie it again at 7, and Wright scored on consecutive aces for a 9-7 lead. The other junior who had a hand in seemingly every scoring play for Oregon (28-9-1) was Delaney Mahoney, who played club volleyball for Lutheran coach Kyle Milborn. She had 22 assists. Milborn could readily see the advantage Oregon had with the 1-year difference between players. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oregon was more aggressive than last year,â&#x20AC;? Milborn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was very impressed with the way Lutheran played, for a bunch of sophomores and a freshman,â&#x20AC;? Watson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a rollover.â&#x20AC;? Senior Shannon Cullen made her presence felt in the net and gave Oregon a 14-11 lead on an offensive point and a defensive block right afterwards. The Hawks expanded that to a 24-17 lead on their way to a win in the first game.

Up next s!3OUTH"ELOIT Sectional, Oregon vs. #HRISTIAN,IBERTY!CADemy, 6 p.m. Tuesday Mahoney really started to get into the groove in the second set, artfully working the set-up. It was sophomore Sommer Rhea staking Oregon to an early 4-0 lead on two of her six kills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After having her in my club, I knew Delaney would be a threat,â&#x20AC;? Milborn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Delaney has matured the last couple weeks, and knows whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to get the kills,â&#x20AC;? Watson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels like the girls donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need me much, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing.â&#x20AC;? The final six scores of the game for Oregon were especially gratifying, as all were the result of skilled offensive teamwork. Rhea made it 20-16 by dinking a shot into the middle of the court after one of the longest volleys of the night. Wright then had two power slams, and Hailey Long followed up with a tip shot that caught Lutheran off guard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t execute our game plan of being a defense-first team on the outside, and right-side blocking,â&#x20AC;? Milborn said. Rhea and Cullen closed the match out with kills on perfectly placed assists from Mahoney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We exploited their weakness,â&#x20AC;? Watson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We tried to stay away from their center [5-foot11 Katie Dolan] and limit their libero [Hailey Reese] to minimum digs. We did a fantastic job on that. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say enough positive things about the girls.â&#x20AC;? Wright finished with 10 kills, four aces and eight digs to lead Oregon. Rhea had six kills and nine digs, while Long had five kills and seven digs. Cullen had four kills to go along with a strong defensive presence.

CONTINUED FROM B1

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get many kills,â&#x20AC;? said Howell, who had four. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a highlight, and I think a little lucky. But just last night, we worked on two-hits a lot. I just saw the opportunity. When Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m tight to the net, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s either Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m setting, or Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m taking it over. Taking it over was my best bet on that one.â&#x20AC;? In the third set, Howell finally blocked Lexie Fore, who rifled a matchhigh 16 kills in her last high school match. Her sound stuff of the hardhitting senior on the right side gave Newman an 18-9 lead, moments before Bree de Long carved out one of her two aces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, that was my No. 1 highlight for the night,â&#x20AC;? Howell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had been looking for it all night. It kept going through my hands. She hits hard. Really hard.â&#x20AC;? But Comets coach Debbi Kelly, ironically, took a highlight from the Set 2 setback, in which Fore had eight kills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;AFC really pushed us, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something we needed just to find out how much energy we have and what level weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to keep playing at,â&#x20AC;? she said. Fore took her first intimidatingly full swing and painted the back line to give AFC (13-21) an 8-7 lead in Set 2. Later, Fore smoked three kills in a row. She finished a lengthy point by scorching the left boundary for a 15-12 lead, then hammered a kill off a broken play before capping another long point by rattling a kill between a double-block and the net. A Newman hitting error put AFC up 19-12. Fore also had two block kills and eight digs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My adrenaline was up that whole game,â&#x20AC;? Fore said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was amazing.â&#x20AC;? Back-to-back stuff kills by Emily Mairs gave AFC a 22-16 lead. Newman scrapped to get within 23-22, but the Raiders dug in. Cassidy Koning used her off hand for a lefty kill down the right side, and the Comets were called for four hits â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the first seemingly a block by Howell â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to end the set. Koning had 11 digs to go with four block kills and five spike kills, and

Newmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Megan Rosengren hits the ball over AFCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Emily Mairs during Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1A Paw Paw Regional championship match. Newman won 25-21, 22-25, 25-15. Katie Sondgeroth set 15 assists to lead AFC. For Newman, de Long had seven kills, eight service points and two aces, and Aubree Schmitt had eight kills and a block. Howell racked up a match-high 17 assists to go with 11 service points and a pair of aces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very good setter,â&#x20AC;? de Long said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She knows when to take it over in two, when to set it up and when there are two blockers.â&#x20AC;? But if energy was a category on the stat sheet, no one could touch Howell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like the cheerleader of the team,â&#x20AC;? de Long continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She brings us up and makes jokes. Toward the end of the last game, she really had us going.â&#x20AC;? Howell could sense in the huddle before the final set that her Comets were poised to make a statement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After the second game, actually, we were energetic,â&#x20AC;? Howell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We seniors knew it could be our last game, and we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to go out the way we played in

that second game. So we came out really strong in the third.â&#x20AC;? The Comets seized a 5-1 lead behind Shipmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s service. Spinning the ball in her left hand before lofting it, she notched two aces and set the template for the third set: pin the Raiders deep to keep Fore at bay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the doubleblocks,â&#x20AC;? AFC coach Jan Cupp said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lexie faces that all the time. The key was that our passing was behind the 10-foot line. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more or less getting the passes off the net, so the set was way off the net. That led to not getting on top of the ball.â&#x20AC;? Up 6-3, the Comets earned a long, deflating point, Julie Hurd first running down a ball alongside the Newman bench, a step and a half from Kelly. With neither team able to get down a kill, Sara Nysather extended the point with one of her 12 digs, near the boundary in front of the Newman bench. It led to an AFC hitting error. Late in the match, Howell set to classmate Megan Rosengren, who

banged her 12th and final kill off a block for a 20-10 lead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My gosh, she was on fire tonight,â&#x20AC;? Kelly said of Rosengren. As unfazed as they were after a first-set loss, the Raiders (13-21) took the next three points to make it 20-13. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though the record doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show it, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never quit all season,â&#x20AC;? Cupp said. But Rachel Humphreys had two of her four kills off the bench in the last five points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My heart was just pounding, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m also cool, calm and collected,â&#x20AC;? the junior said. She spiked a kill to make it 22-13, then tipped one to go up 24-14. Then de Long hammered a kill off a block, sealing Kellyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first regional title in her 4 years at Newman. But it was de Long who gripped the plaque, her knuckles white, after the Comets broke their postgame huddle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What can I say?â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty exciting thing.â&#x20AC;?

The Bullsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Joakim Noah (13) battles with the Knicksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Tyson Chandler during Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game in Chicago. The Bulls won 82-81.

Welcome back Rose hits game-winner in return to UC BY K.C. JOHNSON #HICAGO4RIBUNE

With Steve Kerr calling the game courtside for TNT and Toni Kukoc stopping by the United Center to join dynastyera regulars Scottie Pippen, Randy Brown, Stacey King, Bill Wennington and John Paxson, the roar surely sounded familiar. As soon as public address announcer Tommy Edwards began his familiar call of â&#x20AC;&#x153;From Chicago â&#x20AC;Ś,â&#x20AC;? the joint erupted as it did so often when Michael Jordan and Co. roamed the place, dominating the league. Sure, Derrick Rose had played exhibitions at home already. But the sellout crowd of 22,022 knew Thursday night marked something special, something more real. And No. 1 provided game-winning heroics that a certain No. 23 would have loved, rising

high over Tyson Chandler and Raymond Felton to drop home a difficult right-handed floater with 5.7 seconds remaining for an 82-81 victory. Forget the initial roar. The one after the gamewinner still may be lingering. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I missed enough damn shots the whole night,â&#x20AC;? Rose said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m used to those situations. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I work so hard. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to continue missing the shots Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m missing.â&#x20AC;? Carmelo Anthony, who scored a game-high 22 points, missed a good look at a potential gamewinner over Luol Deng at the buzzer. The Bulls tied a franchise record with their sixth straight home opening victory. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also their sixth straight triumph over the Knicks, a franchise quite familiar with that decorated Bullsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; era. Roseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game-winner

gave him a team-high 18 points and softened the stain of his second straight difficult shooting night. Rose went 7-for-23 from the field and committed two costly turnovers in the final 87 seconds. But there was never a doubt who would get the ball on the final possession. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very strongminded person,â&#x20AC;? Joakim Noah said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let anything get to him. At the end of the game, you want the ball in his hands.â&#x20AC;? Noah and Carlos Boozer set solid screens on the play. Rose dribbled down to the baseline and let fly. Deng, aggressive throughout after his foulplagued opener, added 17 points. Noah battled Chandler to finish with 15 rebounds, moving far better than in his debut after missing most of the preseason with a groin injury.

VOLLEYBALL | CLASS 2A RIVERDALE REGIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Steaming through to sectional Fultonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adjustments too much for Prophets in regional final BY TY REYNOLDS TREYNOLDS SAUKVALLEYCOM    EXT

PORT BYRON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Fulton coach Stacy Germann loves it when her volleyball teams â&#x20AC;&#x153;play intellectuallyâ&#x20AC;? on the court. Her Steamers used their volleyball IQ perfectly Thursday against Prophetstown in the 2A Riverdale Regional championship. An adjustment on defense made life tough for the Prophet hitters, and the Steamers won their first regional title since 2006 with a 25-13, 25-21 victory in Port Byron. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Prophetstownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a scrappy team, and they never go away,â&#x20AC;? Germann said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but they struggled with serve receive a little bit, and our girls really implemented the adjustments we made defensively tonight. We got into a clutch match, and they did the things we worked on in practice [Wednesday] like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been doing them all year.â&#x20AC;? The adjustments involved repositioning the Steamer defenders, and putting them in spots where Prophetstown (12-20) was most likely to hit their spikes. The end result was Fultonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third win over the Prophets this season, and second in 9 days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coach had it all planned out, and we all grasped it quickly at practice,â&#x20AC;? senior Rachael Beiermann said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew what to expect, and we got things going our way right away.â&#x20AC;? As the Prophets struggled to get anything going offensively, Fulton (13-17) took advantage. Beiermannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kill sparked an early run, and back-to-back kills by Camerin Huizenga, followed by a Betsy Leonard block and a Jamie Huennekens ace, gave the Steamers an 8-2 lead right out of the gate. Chelsea Lesniewski bookended another Fulton run with kills, and a combo block from Beiermann and Ann Renkes put Fulton up 16-4 in the opening set. A Claire Milnes kill and a Clare Kramer point brought the Prophets to within seven at 19-12, but Leonardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kill went for a sideout, and Lesniewski pounded

Leonard said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We relax, we keep feeding off the momentum, and we just seem to be able to keep things going our way.â&#x20AC;? The feisty Prophets wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go away, but the equally scrappy Steamers were ready. Fulton took a 9-4 lead in the second set after a pair of aces from Leonard, and took Prophetstownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best shot in stride. Kills from Kramer and Milnes brought the Prophets within 13-12, then a Milnes kill after a Fulton hitting error tied the second set at 14. Back-to-back kills by Karlie Stafford a few points later tied the score at 17, and the Prophets were eyeing a third set. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The girls kept clawing and scratching, just kept plugging away, but we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have it when we really needed it tonight,â&#x20AC;? Prophetstown coach Arthur Wyckoff said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fultonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense moved really well tonight â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it seemed like they were everywhere we wanted to hit it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and we just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get anything going consistently.â&#x20AC;? Huizengaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s block snapped the tie, and Lesniewski slammed backto-back kills to give the Steamers some breathing room. Another Lesniewski kill followed Olivia Edforsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ace, then a kill from Beiermann and a Lesniewski ace gave Fulton match point.

After a service error and hitting error by the Steamers, Beiermann rattled a kill home off a Prophetstown block to set off a wild celebration with the Fulton players and fans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew Prophetstown would never give up, but once we got the momentum, we kept it up and werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to be stopped,â&#x20AC;? Lesniewski said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we get ahead, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get down on ourselves as easily, and when we stay positive and excited, the momentum just keeps rolling for us.â&#x20AC;? Lesniewski had 10 kills and six digs for the Steamers, while Leonard added four kills and three aces. Beiermann stuffed the stat sheet with eight kills, 10 assists, five points and a block, and Edfors matched those 10 assists and served nine points and two aces. Huizenga finished with three kills and two blocks, Huennekens had seven points and six digs, and Averi Leitzen chipped in seven digs. Staffordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seven kills paced the Prophets, while Kramer added five kills and 10 digs, and Milnes finished with four kills. Kate Fringer chipped in 15 assists, seven digs, two kills and a block, and Katlyn Shirley had eight digs. Fulton will face Orion, a 25-21, 25-20 winner over Sherrard in the 2A Rockridge Regional final, in the semifinals of the 2A Farmington Sectional, at 6 p.m. Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This just feels awesome,â&#x20AC;? Beiermann said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got so much confidence and trust in each other. The first part of the season, things werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really cranking; now, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flowing so well for us, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready to set a new goal of winning a sectional.â&#x20AC;?

Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jordyn Koett sets the ball Thursday against Belvidere during the Class 3A Stillman Valley Regional championship. The Warriors won 25-21, 25-9 to advance to next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Princeton Sectional.

Warriors dominate second set against Bucs SUBTLETY CONTINUED FROM B1 Sterling advances to the 3A Princeton Sectional, where it will play LaSalle-Peru, which won the Streator Regional on Thursday and was the NIB-12 West champion. The Cavaliers beat Morris 25-9, 25-27, 28-26 to win the regional, and they beat Sterling twice during conference play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are just going to have to play very good defense,â&#x20AC;? Williams said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have played good defense, but we know that LaSalle-Peru will test our back row, and we are just going to have to step up as a team.â&#x20AC;? Sterling (26-7) answered the call when Belvidere made a push during the first set. The Warriors jumped out to an 8-3 lead that included tip-kills by Megan Loos and Harris,

and a series of hitting errors by Belvidere. The lead extended to six points at 11-5 after backto-back kills by Martin. Belvidere closed the gap, making it a twopoint game when Sam Mains stepped to the service line. Mains challenged the back row with a hard serve that knuckled toward the baseline. It fooled Sterling three straight times for aces, and on her fourth serve, Haley Anderson spiked down the Warriorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; return to give the Bucs a 17-15 advantage. The run forced Sterling coach Dale Dykeman to call timeout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought they had a couple good servers,â&#x20AC;? Dykeman said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and they put a few there that made it very tough on our back row. We just needed to focus and get the ball up and get back into our offense.â&#x20AC;?

The Warriors did just that on the ensuing point, and worked the ball to their automatic connection of Darien Bardoner with the set and Harris with the kill. Bardoner had 13 assists, and Harris had 11 kills. Jordyn Koett stepped to the service line to spearhead a five-point Sterling run that essentially knocked the Bucs out in the first set. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just needed to refocus when they went ahead,â&#x20AC;? said Koett, who had 10 service points and nine assists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We needed to get our passes up. When we do that, the kills start to come, and the whole team gets going. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to force them to make plays. We felt like that would lead to them making mistakes, and help us to avoid making them.â&#x20AC;? The plan worked, as the set ended with back-to-back hitting

errors by Belvidere. The Warriors didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss a beat in the second set. Sterling jumped out to 13-3 lead, the final point coming on a missed set by Belvidere libero Teagan Toft, who grabbed the ball after it hit the floor and slammed it in frustration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing that we were able to accomplish this,â&#x20AC;? Dykeman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But what I really like about it is that everyone was able contribute. Kiarra willed us to win the other night. Tonight, we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to rely on her so much. Everyone that stepped on the court made the plays.â&#x20AC;? Martin added seven kills, and Gabby Sandoval had three kills and five service points. Taylor Hendrix added four kills, and Williams had three kills and a block. Anderson had four kills for Belvidere, while Mains finished with three aces and two kills.

or ex-Bears quarterback Matt Blanchard, more than 2 months of healing and hard work led to a fresh round of NFL tryouts. First came the Kansas City Chiefs. Next, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. By the time the Carolina Panthers invited Blanchard to try out in front of coaches this week in Charlotte, N.C., the Lake Zurich native knew where to turn. Hey, Mom. Can I get a ride? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This time, I took him to the airport,â&#x20AC;? said Peg Blanchard, who dropped off her son Monday for his latest workout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m your good luck charm this time.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? She was right. Moms usually are. The Panthers signed Blanchard to their practice squad, where he will contribute however possible behind fellow quarterbacks Cam Newton and Derek Anderson. Thus marked the latest step in a long road back for Blanchard, who could have earned a spot on the Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 53-man roster this season, if not for an ill-timed preseason injury in which he broke the knuckle on the ring finger of his left hand. Now, instead of playing for his hometown team, Blanchard is part of the resurgent Panthers (4-3), as they compete with the Bears and others in the NFC playoff hunt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The last couple months have been a roller coaster, for sure,â&#x20AC;? Blanchard said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had great support. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten healthy rather quickly, which is great. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These injuries, they really shape your char-

Once again, Blanchard got through it. He did so as an under-recruited state champion at Lake Zurich. He did so after injuries in college, rebounding to have an outstanding career at UW-Whitewater. He did so after going undrafted in the NFL. All along, the 6-foot-3, 225-pound quarterback

relied upon a not-sosecret formula to chase his dreams. Any dream-chaser is welcome to use the formula, by the way. Here it is: Hard work. Dedication. Belief. After the Bears waived Blanchard with an injury settlement Aug. 27, he could have stewed in anger or wallowed in self-pity. Instead, he worked out and waited for clearance to begin throwing again, which finally came after a 24-day layoff. Five days a week (sometimes 6), for 2½ hours a day, Blanchard worked on his throwing technique with coach Jeff Christensen at Throw It Deep Academy in Lockport. Christensen spent eight seasons as an NFL quarterback beginning in 1983, and he marveled at Blanchardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s progress in the past 2 years.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about the feet, knees and hips. Well, that, plus the arms and the fingers. Add the head and the heart, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no wonder Blanchard is succeeding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still in the big improve,â&#x20AC;? Christensen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how good he could be. I know heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s substantially improved last week from where he was a year ago, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still on the upward trend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I mean by that is his accuracy, his velocity, his spin ratio â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it just keeps getting better and better and better.â&#x20AC;? So much so that Christensen was forced to apologize. Not long after Blanchard started working out at Throw It Deep, he and Christensen had a conversation about what the quarterbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s professional ceiling might be. Christensen prides

himself in telling it like it is, and he told Blanchard exactly what he thought: If everything went well, Blanchard could be a career backup in the NFL. A few days passed before the two spoke again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He calls back,â&#x20AC;? Christensen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I think I can start.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; First sentence.â&#x20AC;? Fast forward to this fall, 5 days after Blanchard was cleared to throw. Christensen watched in amazement as Blanchard threw 165 passes, missing on only three. The menu called for crow. Christensen ate it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think you might have the goods,â&#x20AC;? Christensen told Blanchard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You might have what it takes to be a starting NFL quarterback. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And he just keeps getting better on a week-byweek basis.â&#x20AC;?

to force overtime. Brent Grimes returned an interception 94 yards for a touchdown to put the Dolphins up 17-3 midway through the third quarter. Cincinnatiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Giovani Bernard scored on an electrifying tying 35-yard touchdown run in the third quarter that covered perhaps twice that much ground. He started right, doubled back left, weaved up the sideline, cut back across the middle and somersaulted in the end zone, leaving Dolphins sprawled in his wake all along the way.

Temptation can lead to bad play

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

Oscar Wilde said, “The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it.” However, yielding can be fatal at the bridge table. It is true that some temptations that ought to be avoided do not prove to be lethal, because the cards forgive – unlike in today’s deal. Many players would go down in four hearts and, with some justification, complain about their bad luck. But if the only job is to make the contract and not to worry about overtricks, there is a line of play that guarantees success – why ignore it? South is in four hearts. West leads the club queen and East signals with the six. What should declarer do? South’s jump to game

might look aggressive with only nine high-card points and a void in his partner’s first-bid suit, but his hand has great distribution and he will not know how good

or bad game is until after he sees the dummy. In these situations, it is right to blaze into game, the contract that pays the big bonus when it makes. After taking the first trick, many declarers would lead a trump. Here, East would win and cash his other two trump winners. Later, South would lose a club to go down one. Yes, 3-0 offside is only an 11 percent chance, but why risk it? Instead, declarer should be happy to concede three trump tricks. At trick two, he should lead his other high club and ruff a club on the board. East may overruff and cash his other two trump tricks, but there is still one heart left on the board with which to ruff South’s last club loser. © 2013 UFS

Sud oku! Answer on B12

Friday, November 1, 2013 Looking back will allow you to make the most of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to come this year. Use your experience to uncover new possibilities. Set a standard that will give your friends and colleagues something to aspire to, and your reputation will get a boost. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Mixing business with pleasure will be beneficial. Setting up interviews or sending out your resume will lead to greater prosperity. Give a friendly nudge to someone if it will get you ahead. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- The things you do for others will make a big difference. Call in favors and discuss plans that include adventure, excitement and travel. You will obtain valuable information and firm up future plans. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- You will master something that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been working on. Expect to receive the go-ahead for a project. Travel will lead to unexpected delays and an emotionally fraught situation. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Listen to what people are telling you and follow rules or directions explicitly. With a couple of last-minute changes,

you will please someone who is counting on you. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop or look back. Take what you know and make it work for you. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll leave a good impression on others, and your uncanny timing will make others take note.

your life. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You should pay attention to romance, love and domestic harmony today. A change may be required, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have the courage to make it. Confidence will be called for, so make sure you have it.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Erratic behavior and emotional outbursts can be expected if you fail to rein in your spending. Beware of extravagance and keep life simple.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Take a trip to a place that inspires you. Mingling with people you can learn from will lead to an interesting destination. You can make a difference and find a solution.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Do whatever it takes to improve an important relationship. Taking a small vacation or making enlivening changes to your home will help. Focus on small things that bring great enjoyment.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You may have to give up one thing in order to get another. Base your decision on end results, not immediate gratification. A trendy new look will attract compliments.
