He was in town as part of his Human Kindness Walk, a cross-country trek in recognition of fallen soldiers and 9/11 victims.

W.Va. man takes his trek of kindness through Sauk Valley BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 529

DIXON – Soon, Armand Young will get back to his life in Charles Town, W.Va., but first he has about 1,600 miles to walk. It will take Young, an ambassador for a church in his hometown, about 11 months to walk those miles, he said. They’ll be the final miles of what will be a nearly 7-year mission – about 9,000 miles – to make a difference and accept signatures as promises. He calls that mission the Human Kindness Walk, and it earned him a nomination

During the now 6 years he’s been walking, Young has been on the road for 23 months, he said, taking a few breaks to return home to West Virginia. “I got the idea to change the world,” Young said, standing among the fire trucks at the Dixon City Fire Department on Thursday. “And God put it in my heart one day to try and make a change in our world.

A former Lanark resident who escaped the Cambodian Killing Fields and went on to become a respected U.S. Navy officer has been charged in a high-profile bribery scheme that involved a l l e g a t i o n s o f U.S. Navy k i c k b a c k s t h a t Commander included prostiMichael tutes and luxury Vannak Khem Misiewicz travel. U.S. Navy Commander Michael Vannak Khem Misiewicz, 46, was arrested in Colorado Sept. 16, along with John Bertrand Beliveau II, 44, a special agent for the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. The men were charged in separate incidents with taking bribes from Leonard Glenn Francis, CEO of Singaporebased Glenn Defense Marine Asia, a multinational defense contractor, according to a news release from the U.S. Justice Department. Francis also was arrested Sept. 16. The criminal complaints say that Francis gave Misiewicz expensive trips, prostitute services, and even Lady Gaga concert tickets in exchange for confidential information and assistance in helping him procure hundreds of millions of dollars in Navy contracts. Beliveau is charged in a separate bribery case involving Francis in which he received similar perks for giving the Glenn Defense CEO information about an NCIS fraud investigation into his business with the Navy.

“I had a $1 million job and a life and got rid of everything and decided one day I was going to walk across America to change the world. And it’s been an awesome walk.� On Thursday, Young’s milage was about 7,400, he said, and for each of those miles he’s carried a staff, which is adorned with American flags, fire department shields and about 560,000 signatures. The signatures he collects are promises from people to “commit an act of kindness in the next 24 hours in the name of a fallen soldier or honor that somebody died on 9/11,� he said.

The connection to Sept. 11 is why he has helmet shields on the staff, and why he was at both the Dixon City and Dixon Rural fire departments Thursday. He’s visited countless fire departments

along his walk, and sometimes even stays the night at a fire house because he doesn’t have enough money to pay for a hotel room. He spent Wednesday night in a hotel in Amboy, and was driven into Dixon to get warm clothes and to see the fire departments by Bickie Dickson, who’s also at the hotel. “I think it’s awesome what he’s doing,� she said. “You don’t see that too much anymore. ...

You see like the Boston Marathons and stuff like that, but you don’t see people walking like this much anymore. So that’s why I thought I’d help him out.� In the next few days Young will make his way west, walking along the Lincoln Highway, carrying the staff with the signatures and flags and promises. “The best part of my walk is, one child, 10 years down the road, simply because they’re in a home, won’t end up with a needle in his arm,� Young said. “And maybe that same kid, because he has a home, 10 years down the road, because somebody cared about him with an act of kindness and kept him in a home, will be a firefighter and pull a needle out of a kid’s arm.�

WASHINGTON

Senate OKs gay rights bill, discrimination ban WASHINGTON (AP) – Reflecting Americans’ increasing acceptance of gays, the Senate on Thursday approved legislation that would bar workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Gay rights advocates hailed the bipartisan, 64-32 vote as a historic step although it could prove short-lived. A foe of the bill, Speaker

John Boehner, R-Ohio, has signaled that the Republican-led House is unlikely to even vote. Senate proponents were looking for a way around that obstacle. Seventeen years after a similar anti-discrimination measure failed by one vote, 54 members of the Senate Democratic majority and 10 Republicans voted for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.

It is the first major gay rights bill since Congress repealed the ban on gays serving openly in the military three years ago. “All Americans deserve a fair opportunity to pursue the American dream,� said Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, a chief sponsor of the bill. Proponents cast the effort as Congress following the lead of business and localities as some 90

percent of Fortune 500 companies and 22 states have outlawed employment discrimination against gay, bisexual and transgender Americans. Supporters described it as the final step in a long congressional fight against discrimination, coming nearly 50 years after enactment of the Civil Rights Act and 23 years after the Americans with Disabilities Act.

COLOMA TOWNSHIP

Little said about financial problems Board meets day after official takes blame, adds trustee BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 525

ROCK FALLS – Coloma Township’s board of trustees met Thursday, a day after its supervisor took blame for the township’s financial problems and admitted she’s not good with math. The board held a scheduled meeting to fill a

vacancy on the board, but nothing was said during the session about Supervisor Debra Burke’s statements. She presided over the meeting. Afterward, Gene Jacoby, a township trustee for more than 35 years, declined to speak about the issues, saying repeatedly “no comment� to a reporter. Another trustee, Mary Richardson, said Coloma’s finances were a “work in progress.� The township, she said, would have answers once the audit is done.

T r u s t ee Peggy McFadden said a day earlier that Coloma’s books were Walter a mess. Neal At the meeting, the trustees considered three candidates – Pam Henderson, Don Koehler and Walter Neal – for the position left vacant by longtime Trustee Bob Sondgeroth, who resigned in September. Jacoby asked Neal, who was at the meeting,

whether he planned to run for the office in the next township election, set for April 2017. “That needs to be asked,� Jacoby said. Neal said he would. Jacoby backed Koehler’s candidacy. “He has a real fine idea about what needs to be done,� Jacoby said. “He’s a really steady person.� The vote was a tie between Neal and Koehler. Jacoby and Richardson voted for Koehler, while McFadden and Burke backed Neal, a

former Riverdale school board member. Township Clerk Pamela Erby broke the tie in favor of Neal. In a later interview, Neal said he would study the issues. “I’m on the outside. It’s hard to make a comment right off the bat,� he said. Coloma Township hasn’t submitted a financial report to the state comptroller’s office – something every government entity is required to do annually – since 2009. Every other

taxing body in Whiteside County has done so, including the other 21 townships, all but one of which are smaller than Coloma. The township also has been late – sometimes by years – publishing required financial reports in the newspaper. When Coloma finally has published reports, they have been riddled with errors. In the Wednesday interview about the problems, Burke said, “It’s all on me.�

Meeting sparks look into city’s future Arrest Group needed to address city’s ‘wants’ BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 529

DIXON – Dixon’s future was the topic of discussion Thursday afternoon in the lower level of Loveland Community Building. The Lee County Industrial Development Association held an economic development strategic planning symposium, which was led by businessman and author Jack Schultz, in an effort to revitalize the organization and form an image of Dixon’s future. Schultz, who is the author of “Boomtown USA: The 7 1/2 Keys to Big Success in Small Towns,� started the symposium with the business and city government leaders listing Dixon’s strengths and then listing what they wish the city had. Among the more than two dozen strengths was a highly rated hospital, the riverfront, the boyhood home of Ronald

Nord’s hire is expected to be approved by the City Council during a special meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall. The symposium and the discussion of Dixon’s future were part of an effort by the development association’s board to re-energize itself and the Dixon economy, said president and CEO John Thompson. “The board is an older board. It’s been around a long time,� he said. “Even though we’ve accomplished a lot, we’re kind of at an opportune time, we feel, where it’s a good idea to re-energize what the group’s doing, maybe refocus, getting some more new folks involved to freshen up our pool of ideas.�

PAKISTAN

Malala plotter new Taliban chief Predecessor was killed in drone strike DERA ISMAIL KHAN, Pakistan (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The ruthless commander behind the attack on teenage activist Malala Yousafzai as well as a series of bombings and beheadings was chosen Thursday as the leader of the Pakistani Taliban, nearly a week after a U.S. drone strike killed the previous chief. The militant group ruled out peace talks with the government, accusing Pakistan of working with the U.S. in the Nov. 1 drone strike. Islamabad denied the allegation and accused Washington of sabotaging its attempt to strike a deal with the Taliban to

end years of violence. Mullah Fazlullah was unanimously appointed the new leader by the Talibanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leadership council, or shura, after several days of deliberation, said the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head, Asmatullah Shaheen Bhitani. Militants fired AK-47 assault rifles and anti-aircraft guns into the air to celebrate. The previous chief, Hakimullah Mehsud, was killed by the drone in the North Waziristan tribal area near the Afghan border. He was known for a bloody campaign that killed thousands of Pakistani civilians and security personnel, a deadly attack on a CIA base in Afghanistan and was believed to be behind the failed bombing in New Yorkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Times square in 2010. The U.S. had put a $5 million bounty on his head.

Mehsudâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s killing had outraged Pakistani officials. The government said the drone strike came a day before it planned to send a delegation of clerics to invite the Pakistani Taliban to hold peace talks, although many analysts doubted a deal was likely. Bhitani, the Taliban shura leader, said the group would not join peace talks with the government, accusing Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif of selling out the group when he met with President Barack Obama in Washington on Oct. 23. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will take revenge on Pakistan for the martyrdom of Hakimullah,â&#x20AC;? Bhitani told The Associated Press by telephone from an undisclosed location in North Waziristan, where the shura met. The Pakistani govern-

ment did not immediately respond to request for comment on the Taliban comments or the appointment of Fazlullah. Pakistani Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said he asked the U.S. ambassador in Islamabad, Richard Olson, not to carry out any drone attacks while Islamabad was pursuing peace talks with domestic Taliban militants. The Pakistani Taliban withdrew an offer to hold talks in May after their deputy leader was killed in a U.S. drone strike but warmed to negotiations again after Sharif took office in June. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unclear if the government will be able to coax the militants back to the table again, especially since Fazlullah is known to be such a hard-liner.

Misiewicz spoke in Lanark in May TURN

CONTINUED FROM A1

Glenn Defense provides a variety of services to the Navy, including coordinating, scheduling and procuring goods and services needed by ships and submarines when they arrive at port. The U.S. Attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office alleges that Misiewicz used his position as deputy operations officer of the U.S. Seventh Fleet to arrange for Navy ships to visit ports where Glenn Defense provided services. Glenn Defense bilked the Navy out of $10 million in just one year in Thailand alone, the U.S. Attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office said. Misiewicz was at the center of several feelgood stories reported

at various times by many media outlets. Born in Cambodia, he was adopted in 1973 by a Freeport woman, Maryna Misiewicz, who was then serving in the Army in Phnom Penh. Misiewicz brought him to the United States, just before the Khmer Rouge took over Cambodia. Maryna Misiewicz retired from the Army in 1976, and has a long history of working with and volunteering in many Stephenson Countyarea veterans programs. In 2010, Misiewicz also made news in an emotional reunion with family members while his ship was on Navy business in Cambodia. Misiewicz graduated from Lanark High School in 1986. In addition to being a good student,

Misiewicz was a member of the conference champion Lanark varsity football team that went 9-0 and made it to the semifinals of the state playoffs before losing to Carthage High School. After graduation, Misiewicz enlisted in the Navy. He received a bachelor of arts degree in marine engineering and a masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in space systems. He eventually worked at the Pentagon for the head of naval operations. He married Marcy Rahn, also a Lanark High graduate. They have three children, and the family was based in suburban Washington. Misiewicz came back to Lanark this year to give a Memorial Day address at the high school. According to a story in

The (Freeport) JournalStandard, Maryna Misiewicz threw a party in Freeport, on Aug. 10, 2008, to celebrate her sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new assignment as captain of the Navy Destroyer USS Kidd. On that day, his proud mother was quoted as saying: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am so excited. I knew he was a smart child, and that he would do well in the Navy, but I had no idea he would ever command a ship. I am just really proud of what he has accomplished. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just become a wonderful man.â&#x20AC;? Misiewicz, Beliveau and Francis are officially charged with conspiracy to commit bribery, which carries a maximum prison term of 5 years. Misiewicz will face charges in federal court.

Scott Wakeley DIXON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Scott Wakeley, 57, of Dixon, died Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2013, at KSB Hospital in Dixon. He was a selfemployed contractor. Scott was born March 28, 1956, in Dixon, the son of Gerald A. and Doreen Mae (Slick) Wakeley. Survivors include two daughters, Jenna Lynn Wakeley of Texas and Tracy Lynn Grover of Michigan; his mother, Doreen Wakeley, his significant other, Patty Spahn, one brother, Lance Wakeley, and one sister, Lynne Wakeley, all of Dixon; three grand-

daughters, nine nephews; and two nieces. He was preceded in death by his father; and one brother, Randy Wakeley. Visitation will be from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday and the funeral at 11 a.m. Saturday at Preston-Schilling Funeral Home in Dixon, with the Rev.

PHILIPPINES

Typhoon could cause â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;catastrophic damageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; MANILA, Philippines (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; One of the most powerful typhoons ever recorded slammed into the Philippines early today, with one weather expert warning of catastrophic damage. The U.S. Navyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Joint Typhoon Warning Center shortly before Typhoon Haiyanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s landfall said its maximum sustained winds were 314 kilometers per hour (195 mph), with gusts up to 379 kilometers per hour (235 mph). â&#x20AC;&#x153;195-mile-per-hour winds, there arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too many buildings constructed that can withstand that kind of wind,â&#x20AC;? said Jeff Masters, a former hurricane meteorologist who is meteorology director at the private firm Weather Underground.

Masters said the storm had been poised to be the strongest tropical cyclone ever recorded at landfall. He warned of â&#x20AC;&#x153;catastrophic damage.â&#x20AC;? Local authorities reported having troubles reaching colleagues in the landfall area. The local weather bureau had a lower reading on the stormâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s power, saying its speed at landfall in Eastern Samar provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Guiuan township had sustained winds at 235 kilometers (147 miles) per hour, with gusts of 275 kph (170 mph). The bureau takes measures based on longer periods of time. The storm was not expected to directly hit the flood-prone capital, Manila, further north.

ECONOMY

U.S. shows solid growth, but spending weakens Home construction rose in third quarter WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The U.S. economy showed surprising growth from July through September just before the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partial shutdown. But much of the gain came from a buildup in company stockpiles. Consumers and businesses slowed their spending â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a cautionary sign for the current quarter and early 2014. Americans did purchase more autos and other long-lasting goods. Yet most analysts say the economy isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t showing enough underlying strength to cause the Federal Reserve to scale back its stimulus any time soon.

Overall, growth accelerated to a 2.8 percent annual rate in the third quarter, the Commerce Department said Thursday. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up from a 2.5 percent rate in the April-June quarter. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nearly a full percentage point higher than economists had predicted. Home construction rose at a double-digit pace, and state and local governments spent at their fastest rate in four years. Still, the bulk of the unforeseen strength came from the buildup in company inventories. That suggests businesses overestimated consumer demand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The economy grew more rapidly than anticipated in the summer but for the wrong reason, due

to an unwanted buildup in inventoriesâ&#x20AC;? said Sung Won Sohn, an economics professor at the Martin Smith School of Business at California State University. Many analysts forecast that growth is weakening in the current quarter to an annual rate below 2 percent. Sohn said businesses are now forced to cut back on their restocking to thin out the unwanted inventories. He also said companies are likely to hold off on hiring, which would weigh further on consumer spending. The anticipated pullback from businesses comes at a critical time. Economists estimate that the shutdown will cut nearly half a percentage

point from overall growth in the fourth quarter. Still, not all analysts viewed the thirdquarter report as troubling. Joseph LaVorgna, chief U.S. economist at Deutsche Bank Securities, believes the solid growth is the start of robust second half of the year. Consumers spent more on big purchases in the third quarter, he notes. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sign of confidence. And he points to recent surveys of manufacturers, which show factories are ramping up production in anticipation of greater demand. He predicts growth will strengthen in the fourth quarter to an annual rate of 3.5 percent. If correct, that would be

the strongest quarter for the economy in nearly two years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People say the consumer is weak ... but if you delve deeper into the data, the weakness is in services,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The consumer is doing better than you think especially on the items that are most cyclicalâ&#x20AC;? such as autos. Consumer spending weakened to a 1.5 percent annual growth rate from a 1.8 percent rate in the previous quarter. It was slowed by flat spending on services. This category includes everything outside manufacturing and makes up about twothirds of all purchases. One reason was a steep drop in utility spending as unseasonably cool summer cut into demand

for power. By contrast, consumer spending on goods surged at a 4.3 percent annual rate, the fastest in a year and a half. The gain was led by 7.8 percent annual growth in spending on autos and other long-lasting manufactured goods. Spending by consumers is critical to growth because it drives roughly 70 percent of economic activity. Higher taxes this year and slow wage growth have weighed on consumers since the start of the year. Exports rose at a 4.5 percent rate in the third quarter, helped by stronger economies overseas. Still, businesses cut back on investment in equipment by the most in a year.

THE CARTOONISTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S VOICE

Dave Granlund, GateHouse News Service

Smiles at the gas pump a positive sign What we think Sauk Valley consumer confidence got a pleasant boost with the decline below $3 a gallon for gasoline prices. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping the benefits spread across the local economy.

I

f thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a smile on your face, a lilt in your voice, and a spring in your step after you filled your vehicle with gasoline this week, we believe we know why. Prices in the Dixon area fell below $3 a gallon earlier this week for the first time in quite a while. Cracking the $3 barrier first were prices of $2.99 a gallon. Then, prices of $2.97 were seen, and even a $2.95 figure was posted. To be sure, the boost provided to motorists may be more psychological than financial, but then again, the economyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s underpinnings rest on the mood of consumers. Surveys of consumer confidence are regularly taken to gauge the national economic mindset. Anything that boosts that mindset has got to be a good sign. Experts remind us that gasoline prices usually decline in the autumn, as consumer demand wanes after the busy summer driving season, and as refineries switch production to less expensive blends of gasoline for the winter months.

But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a few autumns since the first number on gasoline price signs was a 2 instead of a 3. Of course, the days of cheap gas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; less than $1 a gallon â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are gone for good. We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen prices below $2 a gallon around here for nearly 5 years. But we have seen prices exceed $4 a gallon in the not-too-distant past, which prompted doomsayers to predict ever-increasing prices. Fortunately, that dire forecast has yet to be fulfilled, much to motoristsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; delight. If you are one of those persons who has a little extra cash in your wallet or available through your debit card, what are you going to do with it? Go out to a restaurant to eat? Make an extra shopping trip to the store? Buy a bigger Thanksgiving turkey? Put it aside for Christmas shopping? Whatever goods or services the money is used for, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping the benefits spread across the local economy for as long as moderate gasoline prices last.

A year older, deeper in debt Investments do well, but pension debt rises anyway News-Gazette Editorial Board Champaign

Even good Illinois state pension news isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all good. When it comes to public pensions, the state and the taxpayers just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t win. That unfortunate reality was reaffirmed recently when the state Teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Retirement System released a summary of its financial status for the 2013 fiscal year, which ended June 30. TRS generated a positive return of 12.8 percent on its investments, an excellent rate that exceeds its projected 8 percent longterm rate of return. At the same time, however, TRSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unfunded liability for the 2013 fiscal year increased to $55.73 billion from $52.08 billion the year before. In other words, it ended up an additional $3 billion in the hole despite outperforming its pro-

Illinois Senate President John Cullerton, D-Chicago, speaks to reporters in Springfield, in a photo from August. Cullerton said in October that the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nearly $100 billion pension shortfall isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as dire as some people say, and that it is not an imminent crisis. jected gain on investments. THESE KINDS OF numbers provide additional proof, assuming that more proof is necessary, that Gov. Pat Quinn and legislators need to cobble together some kind of meaningful fix to the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall $100 billion underfunding of its public pension systems. TRS has 390,000 members. Of that total, 108,000 people receive

benefits while an additional 160,000 are paying into the system. An additional 120,000 members are inactive, meaning that they retain the right to future benefits while not currently contributing to the system. TRS assets totaled $40.97 billion at the end of September, an astonishing sum. But it paid out nearly $5 billion in benefits in the 2013 fiscal year. TRSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problem is wellknown to all who are paying attention. Its members have paid in what they were supposed to pay in. Investment returns have been good, an average 9 percent rate of return over the past 20 years. But past governors and legislators have repeatedly dropped the ball by declining to meet their public duty and spending money that should have been used for pension contributions on other programs. But there is no easy solution. In the current fiscal year, the state is contributing $3.438 billion to TRS, and next year itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scheduled to put in $3.412 billion. Urbanek said the state would have

John Cullerton, president of the Illinois Senate, recently said the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pension problem is not a crisis, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not in the sense that TRS wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to meet its obligations to retirees for the foreseeable future. But the numbers show the state is sitting on a time bomb. If it ever goes off, there will be no shortage of casualties.

ILWAUKEE – November can be an odd time to look for adventure as the days turn gray and the air gets colder. However, a trip to Milwaukee certainly will add color to the move into winter. Adults in an artistic mode will want to plan a visit to Splash Studio, a painting bar at 184 N. Broadway. Visitors sign up online for a Splash Session, choose a painting, go to the bar, drink, talk, and paint. They get to take their creation home. The cost of the activity varies. Mini paintings also hold appeal there. Just drop in at any time to work at the bistro tables or bar. The cost ranges from $10 to $20. No reservations are taken. Visit www. splashmilwaukee.com to find out more. Interested in bocce ball? Then head over to the InterContinental Hotel at 139 E. Kilbourn Ave. Every Tuesday evening, the hotel is the site of this indoor competition. Open play is offered; no court is required. The game involves a pair of bocce balls and two to four players. Each player takes a turn tossing a ball as they attempt to get it as close to the pallino (a smaller ball) as possible, and closer than everyone else. Even if there is not a plan

Those who want to fly without a plane will need to wait until March to take wing at the Milwaukee County Zoo at 10001 W. Blue Mound Road. Good with a $55 all-day pass, visitors have the option of trying out a zip line, tackling a 3-level Photo courtesy of Marquette University obstacle ropes course, and Splash Studio in Milwaukee is a bar with a lot of color.

National math, reading scores up slightly Official hoped to see better results

Thursday finds that the vast majority of the students still are not demonstrating solid academic performance in either math or reading. Stubborn gaps persist between the performances of white children and their Hispanic and African-American counterparts, who scored much lower. Overall, just 42 percent of fourth graders and 35 percent of eighth graders scored at or above the proficient level in math. In reading, 35 percent of fourth graders and 36 percent of eighth graders hit that mark.

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sometimes the best isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t good enough: Most American fourth- and eighth-graders still lack basic skills in math and science despite record high scores on a national exam. Yes, todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s students are doing better than those who came before them. But the improvements have come at a snailâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pace. The 2013 Nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Report Card released

Still, as state and federal policies evolve in the post-No Child Left Behind era, the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school kids are doing better today on the test than they did in the early 1990s, when such tracking started, with more improvement in math than in reading. Students of all races have shown improvement over the years. The results come from the National Assessment of Educational Progress, or NAEP, which is given every two years to a sample of fourth and eighth graders.

This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s results, compared to results in 2011, show average incremental gains of about one or two points on a 500-point scale in math and reading in both grades, although the one-point gain in fourth grade reading was not considered statistically significant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every two years, the gains tend to be small, but over the long run, they stack up,â&#x20AC;? said Jack Buckley, commissioner of the Education Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s National Center for Education Statistics. Buckley said he was â&#x20AC;&#x153;heartenedâ&#x20AC;? by some of

MOSCOW

Olympic torch blasts into space Symbol of peace to be taken on first spacewalk MOSCOW (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A Russian rocket soared into the cosmos Thursday carrying the Sochi Olympic torch and three astronauts to the International Space Station ahead of the first-ever spacewalk for the symbol of peace. Video streamed by the U.S. space agency NASA reported a flawless docking with the space station about six hours after the craft blasted off from Russiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manned space facility in Baikonur, Kazakhstan. The unlit torch for the 2014 Winter Olympics in the Russian city of Sochi is to be taken on a spacewalk Saturday, then return to Earth on Monday (late Sunday EST) with three departing space station astronauts. The arriving crew members Thursday were Russiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mikhail Tyurin, American Rick Mastracchio and Koichi Wakata of Japan. Now that the newcomers have entered the space station following a long hatch-opening process, the orbiting lab has nine people aboard for the first time since 2009. Fyodor Yurchikhin of Russia, NASAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Karen Nyberg, and Italian Luca Parmitano are the crew

Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata (center), a crew member of the next mission to the International Space Station, smiles Thursday as he boards a spacecraft prior to the launch of Soyuz-FG rocket. A Russian official carries an Olympic torch at the Russian leased Baikonur cosmodrome, Kazakhstan. The crew will deliver the Olympic torch to space as part of the ongoing torch relay. The torch will be brought back along with the stationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current crew. scheduled to return to Earth with the torch via a Monday landing on the steppes of Kazakhstan. The Olympic torch will not burn onboard the space outpost because lighting it would consume precious oxygen and pose a threat to the crew. The crew will carry the unlit torch around the stationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s numerous modules before taking it out on a spacewalk. The Olympic torch was

taken aboard the U.S. space shuttle Atlantis in 1996 for the Atlanta Summer Olympics, but this is the first it time it will be taken outside a spacecraft. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great pleasure and responsibility getting to work with this symbol of peace,â&#x20AC;? Tyurin told journalists on Wednesday before the launch. Russians Oleg Kotov and Sergei Ryazanskiy

will take the torch out of the space station on Saturday while American Michael Hopkins remains inside. The four-month Sochi torch relay, which started in Moscow on Oct. 7, is the longest in the history of the Olympics. For most of the 65,000-kilometer (39,000-mile) route across Russia, it will travel by plane, train, car and even reindeer sleigh.

the results, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but there are also some areas where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d hoped to see improvement where we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.â&#x20AC;? Today, President W. Bushâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s landmark education law No Child Left Behind, which sought to close achievement gaps among racial groups and have every student doing math and reading at grade level by 2014, has essentially been dismantled. After Congress failed to update the law before it was due for renewal in 2007, President Barack Obama allowed states to get waivers from it if they

Marshall, Williams return to TV

Meeting and Exceeding your expectations, every day

LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams play feuding ex-TV partners on an episode of Nickelodeonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sam & Cat,â&#x20AC;? but they brush aside any comparison to their past. The former â&#x20AC;&#x153;Laverne & Shirleyâ&#x20AC;? stars, who back in the day of their 197683 sitcom were reported to have crossed swords, said they were never enemies and remain friends despite lingering suggestions to the contrary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was rumors. Any show you work on for eight years, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gonna argue at some point,â&#x20AC;? said Marshall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Way overblown.â&#x20AC;? Williams agreed, but

105 E. 23rd Street, Sterling

added a bit of detail. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, it was a bit overblown,â&#x20AC;? she said. The actress added that she and Marshall have â&#x20AC;&#x153;very different personalitiesâ&#x20AC;? with contradictory styles of working, which sometimes led to on-set clashes. That said, Williams regularly visits Marshallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house to watch and discuss TV. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a chill in the air, Williams said, but only because Marshall keeps her thermostat turned down and, to compensate, provides down coats and blankets for guests. Marshall, whose bigscreen directing credits include â&#x20AC;&#x153;A League of Their Ownâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Big,â&#x20AC;? is

busy working on a documentary about provocative ex-NBA player Dennis Rodman.

ILLINOIS LEGISLATURE

Gun bill stopped; lawmakers leave work undone Procedural move halts legislation’s progress SPRINGFIELD (AP) – A push to fight crime by imposing stiffer penalties for having guns on urban streets came to a halt Thursday when black lawmakers in the Illinois House used a procedural measure to stall proposed legislation, saying the bill was too focused on locking up young men. The House adjourned shortly after, and the Senate followed a few hours later after failing to address a package of incentives to keep businesses in Illinois or lure other companies here. Adjournment left key issues undone and raised the specter of lawmakers returning to Springfield before the end of the year. The end of the annual twoweek fall session also came and went without resolution of the biggest item pressing on lawmakers, the $100 billion pension debt and how to erase it. Thursday began with what

appeared to be an agreement on the anti-gun bill backed by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who believes it critical for helping the city combat gang violence. The proposal, negotiated for weeks by Rep. Michael Zalewski, a Riverside Democrat, would stiffen prison penalties for felons and gang members caught with weapons. But Rep. Kenneth Dunkin, D-Chicago, head of the Illinois Legislative Black Caucus, called on a procedural move that The Rev. halted its progress Jesse Jackson on the floor. He demanded information from Gov. Pat Quinn’s administration on the impact of the measure, including the cost and the effect on the prison population. The answers were not immediately provided, and the House adjourned. The Rev. Jesse Jackson traveled to the Capitol Thursday

said, calling for more police on the street, money for rehabilitative programs and alternative sentencing programs. Often, the administration responds to requests for notes on legislation within an hour, although state law allows five days for a response. The Department of Corrections is responsible for the notes covering the cost and impact on prison population. Zalewski’s legislation was changed Wednesday afternoon and Corrections spokesman Tom Shaer said each change requires careful analysis. But Zalewski pointed out that for weeks, the agency has been able to quickly respond with inmate and cost projections based on differing versions of his bill. Corrections has opposed the measure, saying it would cost $700 million extra over a decade. Emanuel released a statement expressing disappointment that “opponents of this legislation have chosen political stunts over peoples’ safety.”

House of Representatives staffer Aaron Bailey secures the laptops and desks of lawmakers after the Legislature adjourned this year’s veto session Thursday in Springfield. to lobby against the “mandatory minimum” sentencing measure. He said lawmakers should focus on education and jobs, “not incarceration.” Dunkin dismissed the idea that he had used a parliamentary “trick” to put a brick on the bill, saying the 31 members of

the black caucus in the Senate and the House feared too many young black men would be swept up without a chance at rehabilitation. “The collateral damage is going to be overwhelming and it’s going to wrap up too many innocent citizens,” Dunkin

SPRINGFIELD

Lawmaker: Son would be proud of gay marriage vote Dem casts vote after son’s death Tuesday SPRINGFIELD (AP) – An Urbana lawmaker says her late son would be proud that she returned to the Capitol to vote for same-sex marriage in his last hours. Garret Jakobsson, the 46-year-old son of Democratic state Rep. Naomi Jakobsson, died Tuesday evening. He had a progressive neurodegenerative disorder called Pick’s disease and had been in hospice care in the central Illinois town of Mattoon. Jakobsson rushed back to Springfield Tuesday afternoon to vote for the same-sex marriage bill, which she had cosponsored. It ultimately passed the House with one vote to spare. Jakobsson released a statement Wednesday evening noting that “equal protection under the law” was important to her entire family. The vote, she said, was “one that I felt I could not miss and I know my son was proud of my decision.” Garret Jakobsson was one of Naomi and Eric

Jakobsson’s eight children, six of whom were adopted. Garret was adopted Rep. Naomi from South Jakobsson K o r e a in 1968, her office said. Democratic House Majority Leader Barbara Flynn Currie told The Associated Press that Garret’s death “had been a long time coming.” Currie noted that Jakobsson did her best to get through a difficult day. It was clear, she said, that she was distraught as she arrived at the Capitol to vote. “She believes in family, family values,” Currie said. “What a sacrifice her family made,” Democratic State Rep. Greg Harris, sponsor of the samesex marriage legislation, added. Jakobsson has served six terms in the Illinois House. She announced this fall that she won’t be seeking re-election. Former campaign manager Michael Richards and Urbana Council Member Carol Ammons are bidding for her seat in the March primary.

IN BRIEF ‘Focused’ Cullerton ‘Polar Express’ neglects to vote events in jeopardy 302).'&)%,$!0 n Illinois Senate President John Cullerton was “so focused” on the goal of passing gay marriage legislation this week that he inadvertently neglected to cast his own vote on the bill. The Chicago Democrat was one of six senators who didn’t vote on Tuesday’s measure. The amended bill easily passed his chamber 32-21 after winning House approval. The legislation was initially approved 34-21 in the state Senate in February after Cullerton pushed for a Valentine’s Day vote. He voted for the measure then. Spokeswoman Rikeesha Phelon tells the Chicago Sun-Times that Cullerton is “a leading and vocal supporter of marriage equality.” But she says Cullerton was “so focused on the final hurdle that we failed to record his ‘yes’ vote.” Gov. Pat Quinn says he’ll sign the bill next month.

Park districts reported receiving letters from Warner Bros. telling them they have no legal right to use the name OFTHEPOPULARBOOK and 2004 movie without permission, meaning they must pay to license future events or stop using the name. In the letter, Susan Proctor, the company’s EnterTAINMENT!NTI 0IRACY$IRECtor, explained the company believes that using the name will mislead people into thinking that Warner Bros. is somehow involved. “In addition, your use of Warner Bros.’ Intellectual Property dilutes the distinctiveness of ‘the Polar Express’ property by trading upon the goodwill and reputation which the public associates with the property,” she wrote.

WASHINGTON

FDA demands healthy transition Agency orders food industry to phase out artery-clogging trans fats WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Heart-clogging trans fats were once a staple of the American diet, plentiful in baked goods, microwave popcorn and fried foods. Now, mindful of the health risks, the Food and Drug Administration is getting rid of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s left of them for good. Condemning artificial trans fats as a threat to public health, the FDA announced Thursday it will require the food industry to phase them out. Manufacturers already have eliminated many trans fats, responding to criticism from the medical commu-

nity and to local laws, Even so, the FDA said getting rid of the rest â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the average American still eats around a gram of trans fat a day â&#x20AC;&#x201C; could prevent 20,000 heart attacks and 7,000 deaths each year. It wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen right away. The agency will collect comments for 2 months before determining a phase-out timetable. Different foods may have different schedules, depending how easy it is to find substitutes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to do it in a way that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t unduly disrupt markets,â&#x20AC;? said Michael Taylor, FDAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputy commis-

sioner for foods. Still, he says, the food â&#x20AC;&#x153;industry has demonstrated that it is, by and large, feasible to do.â&#x20AC;? Indeed, so much already has changed that most people wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t notice much difference, if any, in food they get at groceries or restaurants. Scientists say there are no health benefits to trans fats. And they can raise levels of â&#x20AC;&#x153;badâ&#x20AC;? cholesterol, increasing the risk of heart disease, the leading cause of death in the United States. Trans fats are widely considered the worst kind for your heart, even worse than saturated fats, which also can

contribute to heart disease. Trans fats are used both in processed food and in restaurants, often to improve the texture, shelf life or flavor of foods. Though they have been removed from many items, the fats are still found in some baked goods such as pie crusts and biscuits and in ready-to-eat frostings that use the moresolid fats to keep consistency. They also are sometimes used by restaurants for frying. Many larger chains have phased them out, but smaller restaurants may still get food containing trans fats from suppliers.

AP

In this Feb. 12, 2008 file photo, a rack of donuts is displayed at a Dunkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Donuts franchise in Boston. Consumers wondering what food without trans fat will taste like, probably already know as food manufacturers began eliminating it years ago.

NEW YORK

AP

Mike Gupta, Twitterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief financial officer, photographs a board at the post before shares begin trading during the IPO, Thursday on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.

Investors all a-Twitter about debut of IPO NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Shares of Twitter went on sale to the public for the first time Thursday, instantly leaping more than 70 percent above their offering price in a dazzling debut that exceeded even Wall Streetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lofty hopes. By the closing bell, the social network that reinvented global communication in 140-character bursts was valued at $31 billion â&#x20AC;&#x201C; nearly as much as Yahoo Inc., an Internet icon from another era, and just below Kraft Foods, the grocery conglomerate founded more than a century ago. The stockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sizzling performance seemed to affirm the bright prospects for Internet companies, especially those focused on mobile users. And it could invite more entrepreneurs to consider IPOs, which lost their luster after Facebookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

L

first appearance on the Nasdaq was married by glitches. In Silicon Valley, the IPO produced another crop of millionaires and billionaires, some of whom are sure to fund a new generation of startups. Twitter, which has never turned a profit in the seven years since it was founded, worked hard to temper expectations ahead of the IPO, but all that was swiftly forgotten when the market opened. Trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol â&#x20AC;&#x153;TWTR,â&#x20AC;? shares opened at $45.10, 73 percent above their initial offering price. In the first few hours, the stock jumped as high as $50.09. Most of those gains held throughout the day, with Twitter closing at $44.90, despite a broader market decline.

Watching cards can protect play

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

Yesterday, we saw that if the opener bids one of a suit, the next player makes a takeout double, and the responder bids a lower-ranking suit at the two-level, this shows a weak hand. So, what does it mean if the responder redoubles first, then bids a new suit on the second round? Right – logically, it must be forcing. The responder has promised at least 10 highcard points and the hunt is on for the right contract for the opening side. In today’s deal, after responder’s three-club rebid, South might continue with a three-diamond bid. Then North would presumably cuebid three hearts to ask his partner to bid three no-trump with a heart stopper. Here,

of course, South would be happy to oblige. And, as in the given sequence, South just plunges straight into our favorite contract when we have game values but no

major-suit fit. (Note that five clubs fails, but five diamonds makes.) West leads the heart king. What should South do? Unless the heart suit is blocked, if declarer loses a trick before he has taken nine, he rates to concede at least that lost trick and four hearts. So, South should concentrate on getting seven diamond winners. After taking the first (or second) heart trick, South cashes the diamond ace. Then, when West discards, declarer must be careful to unblock dummy’s 10. Next, South leads a spade to the board, plays the diamond five to his nine, runs that suit, and cruises home with an overtrick. Always watch the spotcards closely to see if a suit blockage is threatened. © 2013 UFS

Spread The Wealth 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 the receptionst 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

WASHINGTON

AP

In this Oct. 30 file photo, President Barack Obama speaks at Boston’s historic Faneuil Hall about the federal health care law. Obama says he’s sorry Americans are losing health insurance plans he repeatedly said they could keep under his signature health care law. But the president stopped short of apologizing for making those promises in the first place. “I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me,” he said in an interview Thursday with NBC News.

Canceled policies could be plus for new markets President apologizes Thursday for issues consumers are having WASHINGTON (AP) – Insurance cancellations are fueling a political backlash against President Barack Obama and Democrats supporting his health care overhaul. The president apologized Thursday for the turmoil some consumers are going through, but there may yet be a silver lining as far as the law itself. It’s Economics 101, a little-noticed consequence of a controversial policy decision. And there are winners and losers. Millions of people who currently buy their own health insurance coverage are losing it next year because their plans don’t meet requirements of the health care law. But experts say the resulting shift of those people into the new health insurance markets under Obama’s law would bring in customers already known to insurers, reducing the overall financial risks for each state’s insurance pool. That’s painful for those who end up paying higher premiums for upgraded policies. But it could save money for the taxpayers who are subsidizing the new coverage. “Already-insured peo-

ple who do roll over will improve the risk pool, not hurt it,” said David Axene, a California-based actuarial consultant for health plans, hospitals, government programs and employers. Compared to the uninsured, people with coverage are less likely to have a pent-up need for medical services, he explained. They may have already had that knee replacement instead of hobbling around on a cane. They’re also more likely to have seen a doctor regularly. “The current individual market enrollees are definitely a good addition to the risk pool,” concurred Larry Levitt, an insurance expert with the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. At some point, all these customers had to pass extensive medical screening that insurers traditionally use to screen out people with health problems. Such filtering will no longer be allowed starting next year, and a sizable share of the uninsured people expected to gain coverage under Obama’s law have health problems that has kept them from getting coverage. They’ll be the costly cases. Obama had sold his health care overhaul as a win all around. Uninsured Americans

would get coverage and people with insurance could keep their plans if they liked them, he said. In hindsight, the president might have wanted to say that you could keep your plan as long as your insurer or your employer did not change it beyond certain limits prescribed by the government. That test proved too hard for many plans purchased directly by individuals, leading to a wave of cancellations affecting at least 3.5 million people, based on an AP survey in which about half the states reported data. “I am sorry that they ... are finding themselves in this situation, based on assurances they got from me,” Obama said in an NBC interview, adding that the administration will do “everything we can” to help. The new plans under Obama’s law generally guarantee a broader set of basic benefits and provide stronger financial protection in cases of catastrophic illness. “There is change coming to the individual marketplace with consumer protections that many people have never enjoyed or experienced,” Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told senators this week.

Chandler poised to fill in for Howard

Hawks never solve IC defense

BY CHRISTOPHER HEIMERMAN cheimerman@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, Ext. 552

Jordan Chandler is wellequipped. Starting his first playoff game, the Erie High School sophomore is gifted both physically and mentally: He’s got fleet feet, a strong arm, toughness and vision. Erie-Prophetstown coach Chuck Milem calls Chandler “poised beyond Jordan Chandler his years.” Perhaps most Erie-P’town sophomore importantly, the guy Chandler will fill in for has given the understudy two crucial tools. The more tangible of the two is almost two full seasons of pointers and tips. Whether it’s making reads, getting his shoulders around on a throw, or minding his footwork, Chandler has minded every word Ethan Howard has uttered. The less tangible tool? Proverbial fire. “The next game I’m going to play is for him. I’m going to play my heart out for Ethan,” Chandler said before practice Thursday, leading up to an anticipated slugfest with Stillman Valley on Saturday. UNDERSTUDY CONTINUED ON B3

SOUTH BELOIT – Everywhere the Oregon Hawks turned Thursday night, there was another IC Catholic Knight waiting to make a play. When the Hawks smashed spikes, the Knights were there to get a touch at the net or dig them up. When Oregon tried the tip game, IC Catholic covered well. When the Hawks got a free ball from the Knights, they couldn’t capitalize; when IC Catholic got the same chance, it cashed in. The result was a 25-17, 25-17 victory for the Knights in the championship match of the 2A South Beloit Sectional. ZONE CONTINUED ON B5 Alex T. Paschal/apaschal@saukvalley.com

The Steamers, who began the postseason 11-17, advance to Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bureau Valley Supersectional to meet Fieldcrest at 7 p.m. Fieldcrest beat Watseka 25-18, 25-21 to win the El Paso-Gridley Sectional. Fulton could not have started better, jumping in front 8-1, with sophomore Betsy Leonard putting down four kills and a block in the burst. Leonard finished with match highs of seven kills and four blocks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This feels amazing,â&#x20AC;? Leonard said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the farthest weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve went in a long time in the state tournament. Coming out with a big lead gets you pumped.

That team went 33-2-1 and lost to Eastland in the Class A Elite Eight. A short time later, the Steamers extended to a 14-4 advantage, thanks to a pair of kills by Chelsea Lesniewski and another from Rachael Beiermann. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were kicking their butts at the beginning.

Fultonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rachael Beiermann sets the ball Thursday during the 2A Farmington Sectional championship against Abingdon-Avon. The Steamers won 25-19, 25-13 to reach the Bureau Valley Supersectional. (21-11) fight back, using a 10-2 tear to pull within 20-18. With the score 21-19, kills by Lesniewski and Beiermann propelled the Steamers to a 4-0 set-ending flurry. The Tornadoes took their first lead of the night at 2-1 to start Set 2 before Fulton worked ahead 9-5. Leonard supplied an

ace, a block and a kill during that stretch, which also included kills by Jamie Huennekens and Camerin Huizenga, and an ace from Ann Renkes. Abingdon-Avon took its only other lead at 11-10, but the Steamers would have none of it, responding with a match-ending 15-2 blitz. Three aces by Lesniewski and a kill

by Beiermann made it 16-11. A Leonard block preceded three straight aces by Renkes to make it 21-12. Blocks by Huennekens and Leonard, and a Beiermann ace got Fulton to match point, which was won on a Tornado error. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do a jump serve, and when it works, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty on,â&#x20AC;?

Sondgeroth following in sistersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; steps

When Illinois coach John Groce taught high school math, he would tell his class that he had favorites. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I like the people more who do what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re supposed to do all the time,â&#x20AC;? he said. It sounds like Jon Ekey is becoming one of Groceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorites on the team. The transfer from Illinois State rapidly has become a player the Illini coaching staff can point to as an example of the proper way to do, well, just about everything. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Assistant coach Dustin Ford] takes pride at being negative at times,â&#x20AC;? Groce said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to ding him. There are possessions where you just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ding him. Hopefully some of the younger guys are learning from that.â&#x20AC;? Ekey, a 6-foot-7 forward, spent 4 years with the Redbirds, but is using his final season of eligibility with the Illini as a graduate student. He averaged 6.4 points per game last season and was a career 36.5-percent shooter on 3-pointers. His experience will be instrumental in helping the Illini transition to a roster with five freshmen. The Illini open the season today at State Farm Center against Alabama State. They expect to see a test from the Hornets, Groce said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very athletic,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Very fast, quick. They play uptempo. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very aggressive defensively. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in passing lanes. They try to force turnovers and get out.â&#x20AC;? Ekey shot 5-for-7 for 12 points in the first exhibition game against McKendree and 1 of 5 for four points against

FULL-CONTACT Sondgeroth returned to state a year ago. He posted a time of 15:30, good for 60th place among 210 runners. He was second on the team, behind classmate Simon Thorpe, and helped the Dukes to a 10th-place finish. All that, however, could be merely an appetizer for the main course that lies ahead. Sondgeroth is a leader on a team that finished the regular season ranked seventh in Class 2A. The top three teams at state earn trophies, and Dixon could be in that mix if it performs up to expectations Saturday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun being with a pretty good team in cross country,â&#x20AC;? Sondgeroth said. Sondgeroth didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take any shortcuts to success. Like his older sisters, Chelsea and Tiara, who were both accomplished runners for Dixon and now run in college â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Chelsea at Eastern Illinois and Tiara at North Central â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Cody has been committed year-round to the DHS cross country program. He put in 50-mile weeks all summer, 70-mile weeks in-season, and is a 4-year member of the Polar Bear Running Club, whose members put in a minimum of 500 miles during the winter months.

DIxonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cody Sondgeroth and his teammates are hoping to bring home a state trophy from Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meet at Detweiller Park in Peoria. Dixon coach Evan Thorpe noted Sondgeroth has evolved as an athlete he can depend on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was frustrated with the guys, and I talked to Simon about it,â&#x20AC;? coach Thorpe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Well, I can count on Cody to do the things that we need to do.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I trust these guys to get out there and do what they need to do.â&#x20AC;? For Simon Thorpe, Dixonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top runner, Sondgeroth is now a trusted training partner. The Dukes had Monday off as a scheduled rest day, but Thorpe and Sondgeroth still met after school for a training run. They havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t taken a day off from running in about 2 months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes a lot of my daily tasks easier to have someone there to do it with me,â&#x20AC;? Thorpe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right there with

me for the first 2 miles of a 3-mile workout. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s small things like that that impact my training in a positive way.â&#x20AC;? The Dukes competed in Peoria twice this year, with the idea to get ready for the state meet this Saturday. On Sept. 14, Sondgeroth turned in a time of 15:32 at the First to the Finish Invitational. A week later, he went 15:40 at the Richard Spring Invite. His experience on the Detweiller Park course, combined with good health and the motivation of helping a strong team, has Sondgeroth primed for a big performance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You want to go out pretty good, but you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to completely kill it on the first 800,â&#x20AC;? Sondgeroth said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As long as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not getting boxed in, I think I should do pretty good.â&#x20AC;?

Northwood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than a shooter,â&#x20AC;? Groce said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has learned two positions very quickly. Can shoot the ball. He passes it. He takes care of the ball. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an exceedingly good athlete. He goes to the glass. He does what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supposed to do.â&#x20AC;?

Erie sophomore Jordan Chandler drags River Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nathan Helle for extra yardage during Erie-Prophetstownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 50-28 victory Friday in Erie. Chandler will start his first playoff game at quarterback Saturday, when the Panthers vie for their second postseason win as a co-op against Stillman Valley.

Nnanna Egwu is one the few returning players for the Illini menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basketball team, Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be counting on freshmen and transfers like Jon Ekey to carry the team.

He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mince words when describing how it felt to watch his mentor go down with a knee injury during the Panthersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 50-28 victory over River Valley in the first round Friday night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a little bit of a heartbreak, and I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hear how bad the diagnosis was until after,â&#x20AC;? Chandler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m heartbroken for the kid. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a brother for me. Nobody deserves to be hurt, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s awful to see him in pain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was a little shook up.â&#x20AC;? Still, Chandlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 25-yard run early in the fourth broke open a game very much in the balance at 30-28. Milem has utmost confidence in Chandlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to run the option and wing the ball when he has to. But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll miss Howardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to run like a bull in a china shop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just incredible, and if Nick [Williams] didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the ball, it was like trying to tackle another fullback when Ethan kept it,â&#x20AC;? Milem said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a powerful runner, and he was just an overall distributor.â&#x20AC;? Williams is head-andshoulders atop the area leaderboard with 1,959 rushing yards on 238 carries. His 24 touchdowns are tied with Newman senior Jake

Snow. Impressively, Howard checks in ninth in the Sauk Valley with 866 yards on 109 carries. On just 65 carries, Chandler has racked up 650 yards, a cool 10-yards-per-carry clip. Whereas last year, he relieved Howard in Week 2 and played every snap of a 14-7 nail-biting win over Riverdale, Chandler took all of one snap under center this season before Howard got hurt Friday. Whereas he says he was â&#x20AC;&#x153;a nervous wreck in a mind gameâ&#x20AC;? last year, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got myriad reasons to feel comfortable when the Panthers vie for their second win as a co-op Saturday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got one of the best offensive lines in the state to protect me and block for the running game,â&#x20AC;? Chandler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not feeling feeling as nervous as I did last year. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put into words how awesome itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been to have [Howard] to help me out and get to this point.â&#x20AC;? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also strength in numbers. Chandler is one of six sophomores â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including his left tackle, Pedro Herrera â&#x20AC;&#x201C; starting for the Panthers. On the defensive side, tackle Jack Heflin and end Noah Eads have enjoyed breakout season on the line. Phillip Coers played his way into a starting job at linebacker leading up to Week 4, joining Dylan

Binion, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been in the corps since the playoffs a year ago. Milem admits heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen the underclassmen coming for some time, and he makes it a point to remind them that the co-opâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last playoff appearance before last season was in 2002, when his brother, Chase, and the Panthers lost toâ&#x20AC;ŚStillman Valley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I tell our players how awesome it is to practice under the lights,â&#x20AC;? Milem said. He says his players look at him quizzically. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gets dark at 5 oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;clock. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a blessing to be playing this time of the year,â&#x20AC;? Milem said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These sophomores, they come in, and they won as junior-high kids. They just think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done it.â&#x20AC;? Chandler knows the right to keep doing it rides on the battle in the trenches. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whoever wins that battle will win the game, not me,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Stillman Valley] gets off the ball low and fast. Our line has to get off the ball just as fast, if not faster.â&#x20AC;? And if they do, and the Panthers prevail, what does a sophomore quarterback do for his linemen? Steak dinner? Maybe Subway, at the least? â&#x20AC;&#x153;What wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t I do?â&#x20AC;? Chandler countered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I bow down to those guys, and without them, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not the same offensive team.â&#x20AC;?

AKE FOREST â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Early last season, an ankle injury forced Matt Forte to the sideline. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when he decided to do some research. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I tried to see whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best way that you can get back on the field faster, and people were talking about the ARP [machine],â&#x20AC;? Forte said Thursday at Halas Hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Peanutâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; let me use his ARP, and it works.â&#x20AC;? No kidding. The latest example is none other than Jay Cutler and his miracle groin. Perhaps the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;miracleâ&#x20AC;? is a bit strong. The ARP â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which stands for Accelerated Recovery Performanceâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; is pure science, the type that might make Bill Nye stand and applaud. The purpose of the machine is to stimulate oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nervous system, which helps to speed up the healing process, which helps to secure NFC playoff berths. OK, so I made up the last part. But Cutler is back and better than ever, or at least better than 18 days ago, when he absorbed a sack and tore a muscle in his groin against the Washington Redskins. Back then, the official word from the Bears was that Cutler would miss â&#x20AC;&#x153;at leastâ&#x20AC;? 4 weeks, after which he would be evaluated on a week-to-week basis. Go ahead and throw away the original timetable. Ready or not, Cutler is on track to start Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game against the Detroit Lions. Cutler participated fully in practice Thursday and said he felt no lingering effects from the injury, and coach Marc Trestman said the Bears would march full speed

Bears quarterback Josh McCown (12) talks to Jay Cutler during the first half of the Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 27-20 victory over the Packers on Monday in Green Bay. McCown played well, but will likely be relegated to backup again, as the Bears said Cutler is cleared to return Sunday against the Lions.

TOMMUSICK .ORTHWEST (ERALDSPORTS REPORTER 2EACHHIM ATTMUSICK SHAWMEDIA COM

ahead with their No. 1 quarterback, now that doctors have cleared him to play. Would it be wiser to stick with Josh McCown as the starter for an extra week, considering his effectiveness Monday against the Green Bay Packers? Would it be wiser to let Cutler rest and recover

for an extra week, considering that the Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; chances of playing in January are much better today than a week ago? These questions are up for debate. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certain is that the ARP seems to be A-OK. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty intense,â&#x20AC;? Cutler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a highintensity [stimulation] machine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about all I know. Got me back.â&#x20AC;? Yes, it did. Which got me wondering: If this machine could mend torn muscles and help Cutler surpass all expectations for his return date, what could it do for me? Sixth-year tight end Martellus Bennett stood

in front of his locker after practice, chatting with a few reporters. I wandered over and asked Bennett whether he thought the ARP machine could turn me into a football player. Bennett eyed me. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only person that can make you a football player right now is Jesus,â&#x20AC;? he said. Clearly, Bennett had failed to recognize my brute strength and cheetah-like speed, but I decided not to press the issue. So I instead asked him whether he had used the machine in the past. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ARP?â&#x20AC;? Bennett said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m like Wolverine. I just heal rapidly.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had it when I first got hurt, but I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like it. It was weird, so I gave it back and I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use it. You know, everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different. Some people like Tylenol, some people like Aspirin. Whatever gets the job done, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you need to do.â&#x20AC;? Cutler did what he needed to do. Now, the Bears will ask him to stimulate the Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; playoff chances. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last week, he was jogging around,â&#x20AC;? Forte said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re feeling pretty good, right?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Yeah, the ARPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been working.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He has taken the right steps to get back on the field, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad to have him back out there.â&#x20AC;?

MINNEAPOLIS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Minnesota Vikings needed most of the game to figure out how to stop Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins. The Vikings forced Griffin into three straight incompletions from the 4 in the final seconds to hold on for a 34-27 victory Thursday night. Adrian Peterson ran for 75 yards and two touchdowns, and Christian Ponder went 17-for21 for 174 yards with two touchdowns and an interception before leaving late in the third quarter with an injured left shoulder. John Carlson had seven catches for 98 yards and a touchdown for the Vikings (2-7). Griffin was 24-for-37 for 281 yards, three touchdowns and no turnovers for the Redskins (3-6), who led 27-14 early in the third quarter. He also ran seven times for 44 yards, but the Vikings took him down for four sacks for 39 yards in the second half. The Redskins committed eight penalties for 63 yards. With the Redskins out of timeouts, Griffin ran for 12 yards on fourthand-1 at his own 49 right after the 2-minute

Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder runs from Redskins outside linebacker Brian Orakpo during the first half of the Vikingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 34-27 victory Thursday in Minneapolis. Ponder threw for two touchdowns and rushed for another but was forced to leave the game with a shoulder injury. warning. Jordan Reed caught a 17-yard pass to the 8 and, after a short run by the Redskins, the Vikings inexplicably stopped the clock with a timeout of their own. Wide receiver Greg Jennings was livid on the sideline. But Griffinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next two passes were incomplete.

On fourth-and-goal with 32 seconds left, his throw to the corner of the end zone was caught by Santana Moss with only one foot in bounds. Game over. After losing three games this year in the final minute, the Vikings finally pulled one out. Blair Walsh kicked

two fourth-quarter field goals for the Vikings after Petersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second score gave them a 28-27 lead late in the third quarter. That drive started at the Washington 41, thanks to an unnecessary roughness call on Darrel Young during the punt return. Ponder

scrambled and slung a third-and-12 laser to Jarius Wright for a first down at the sideline. Then, Ponder took off for a 14-yard run that left him with an injured left shoulder, and an official replay reversed the touchdown call after he dived at the pylon and rolled out of bounds. Matt Cassel came in, and Peterson scored to give the Vikings the lead on the next play. The NFC East, which fittingly for this season rhymes with least, has been right there for the Redskins to take hold of, with Dallas sitting at 5-4 and facing the Saints on Sunday night. The 4-5 Eagles travel to Green Bay. The three teams entered this week with the three highest averages of yards allowed per game in the league, and the Redskins were being scored against at a greater rate than any other squad except the winless Jacksonville Jaguars.

Hawks play well in loss to Knights ZONE

IC Catholic def. Oregon 25-17, 25-17

CONTINUED FROM B1

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just kept telling each other, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Get the next point, get the next one,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Oregon junior Emy Wright said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were trying to do everything we could to stop their momentum, but when we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d just kept getting more and more frustrated.â&#x20AC;? The longest run Oregon (29-10-1) had in the match was three points, on just one occasion in the second set. The Knights (33-6) took control of the first set with a 7-0 spurt, then scored nine points in an 11-point span to build an insurmountable lead in the second set. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The key for us all year has been to control the game, build a lead, and then just keep it going,â&#x20AC;? IC senior Delaney Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Amore said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our defense was awesome tonight, we have so much capability at the net, and we definitely found our rhythm tonight.â&#x20AC;? The Hawks, on the other hand, were searching for it in vain. While ICâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense frustrated Oregon, it was the Knightsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; aggressive serving that really hurt the Hawks. Errant passes to setter Delaney Mahoney kept the Oregon offense out of sorts, and once the Knights took the lead, the Hawks started pressing even more. But Oregon coach Faith

Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hailey Long bumps the ball Thursday against IC Catholic in the championship match of the South Beloit Sectional. The Hawks lost 25-17, 25-17. Watson felt the rough night had more to do with their opponent than the Hawks themselves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great all-around team, and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a bad thing to say about this loss,â&#x20AC;? said Watson, who was a senior on the Hawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lone sectional title team in 2006. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We made a few mental errors and had a few bounces go against us, but sometimes the team youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re playing is just better than you. I might get in trouble for saying that, but we knew weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to outstrategize them, and we werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to.â&#x20AC;? Oregon led 7-5 in the first set after IC ended

a long rally with a spike into the net. A Wright kill made it 8-6, but an Oregon net violation turned the tide. The Knights scored the next six points on two Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Amore kills, two Rory Manion aces, and two hitting errors. Wrightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kill brought the Hawks to within 14-11 a few points later, but that was as close as Oregon would get. Kimmy Martinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s block sparked a 4-0 IC run to end the set, and Claudia Koch finished it off with an ace. Back-to-back IC errors early in the second set gave the Hawks a 9-7 edge, but they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sustain it. A

hitting error started a 9-2 Knight run, with Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Amore smashing a pair of spikes and Koch adding a kill to cap the surge. Mahoneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perfect tipkill stopped the bleeding, but Oregon couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t score more than two consecutive points after that. Manion finished off another 4-0 set-ending run with back-to-back smashes, kicking off a loud IC celebration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think our strength all year has been our defense, and our ability to keep the other offense off-balance,â&#x20AC;? IC coach Jean Field said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We served aggressively

tonight, and hit the ball where and how we needed to so theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d get caught out of system a lot.â&#x20AC;? Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Amore had 14 kills and 10 digs for the Knights, while Manion added 10 kills and 10 points. Martino set 25 assists, and libero Kerry Mulligan added eight digs as IC outkilled Oregon 28-17. Wright led the Hawks with eight kills, and sophomore Sommer Rhea added five kills and six digs. Mahoney dished 13 assists, Hailey Long had three kills and six digs, and Jordan Wilken paced the defense with eight digs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were ready for what they were doing; we just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hit the ball in the right spots,â&#x20AC;? Rhea said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We tried to push through, but we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find any consistency or stability on offense. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud of how we played tonight, and they were just the better team. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll definitely learn from this, and be ready to come back next year.â&#x20AC;?

Addendum to the October 23rd Assessment Publication Listing Notice to Palmyra Township Taxpayers: Assessed Values for 2013 Valuation date (35ILCS 200/9-95 January 1, 2013 Required level of assessment (35ILCS 200/9-145) 33.33% Valuation based on sales from (35ILCS 200/1-155) 01/01/2010 - 12/31/2012 Questions about these valuations should be directed to: Lee County Assessment Office 112 E Second St Dixon IL 61021 Ph (815) 288-4483 Office Hours: 8am Ð 4:30pm M - F Property in this township, other than farmland, is to be assessed at a 33.33% median level of assessment, based on the fair cash value of the property. You may check the accuracy of your assessment by dividing your assessment by the median level of assessment. The resulting value should equal the estimated fair cash value of your property. If the resulting value is greater than the estimated fair cash value of your property, you may be over-assessed. If the resulting value is less than the fair cash value of your property, you may be under-assessed. You may appeal your assessment to the Board of Review. If you believe your property's fair cash value is incorrect or that the equalized assessed valuation is not uniform with other comparable properties in the same neighborhood, the following steps should be taken. 1. Contact your township assessor to review the assessment. 2. If not satisfied with the assessor review, taxpayers may file an appeal with the Lee County Board of Review. For appeal forms, instructions, and the Rules and Procedures of the Board of Review, visit www.leecountyil.com, or call (815) 288-4483. 3. The final filing deadline for your township is 30 days from this publication date. After this date, the Board of Review is prohibited by law from accepting assessment appeals.

Make wise choices in the year ahead. Use your talents and skills to the fullest. You have much to gain if you are persistent. The things you learn through others will give you enough courage and confidence to follow your dreams. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have an idea for a cultural or philosophical change while traveling or dealing with people from different backgrounds. Share your thoughts with others, and the insight you get will alter your future. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good time to make personal changes, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t try to get others to follow suit. Leave well enough alone when dealing with friends or family. Interfering in other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives will backfire. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Put on a happy face, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll charm even your most difficult opponent. Your knowledge and innovative approach to matters will capture attention in powerful quarters. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Keep your goals in view. The less you discuss your plans, the easier it will be to avoid interference. Your perspective on things is

sound, and you should trust it. A change in the way you feel about someone is likely. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be tempted to use unusual tactics to get what you want, but you need to be sure of things before you do so. Your intuition will help you figure out what to do and who to trust. A financial dispute will be settled in your favor. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Listen carefully to what others are saying and observe the way people react to you. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make abrupt changes that could cause an emotional situation to spin out of control. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Contribute to a group or organization that can help further your position. Networking and sharing information will lead to a collaborative relationship with someone special. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -You should pursue your personal needs without forcing your will on others. Keeping the peace will allow you the freedom to reach your goals. Take care of a debt that may hamper your success.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Relationships will play a major role in the near future. Nurture the connections that you feel have the most to offer. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to weed out those who hold you back. Romance is highlighted. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Keep a watchful eye on the people most likely to take advantage of you. Problems at home will require you to make a muchneeded change.
