SERVING DIXON AND THE SURROUNDING AREA SINCE 1851

DIXON CITY COUNCIL

Finalist’s contract goes public Meet-and-greet with new city administrator scheduled for Tuesday BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 529

DIXON – Residents will get their first look at David Nord’s contract tonight.

After about a week and a half of negotiating, the city and Nord, the finalist for the city administrator job, reached a verbal agreement Oct. 25, according to Police Chief Danny Langloss. Langloss, who led a 10-person committee in the hiring process, said the city attorney was preparing the contract for its final approval.

The contract will be put on file during the Dixon City Council meeting at 6:30 tonight, Langloss said, and a public meetand-greet is planned from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at The Next Picture Show. Nord, who was the village administrator in Cherry Valley for 25 years, holds a master’s degree in public administration from Northern Illinois

University. Cherry Valley, a suburb of Rockford, has a population of about 3,000 and is home to CherryVale Mall and Magic Waters Waterpark. Nord resigned from Cherry Valley in May to seek a new challenge, he told Sauk Valley Media in October. Moving forward, the City Council will have a special meeting Nov. 12, when Nord is

expected to be hired officially, Langloss said. His first day on the job would be Nov. 13. The 10-person hiring committee included Langloss and commissioners Dennis Considine and Jeff Kuhn. They reviewed the résumés of 40 applicants before reaching a consensus on Nord. CONTRACT CONTINUED ON A2

DIXON – No new information was available Sunday as to the cause of an early-morning fire that killed a rural Dixon woman Friday. The body of 58-year-old Louise Lopez-Landherr was found a few hours after fire destroyed the home at 1787 Clearview Road, west of Dixon. LopezLandherr lived at the residence with her husband John Landherr, who was not home at the time of the blaze, according to neighbors at the fire scene. The fire call came in at 4:19 a.m. Friday, the Lee County Sheriff’s Department said. Local fire officials said they had not yet heard anything about what could have caused the fire. As is standard procedure, the state fire marshal’s office was called in to investigate the fire. “I haven’t talked to the fire marshal or the state police since Friday,” Dixon Rural Fire Chief Norris Tucker Jr. said Sunday night. FIRE CONTINUED ON A4

Kirk: Patients deserve equal care Senator unveils ‘stroke agenda’ CHICAGO (AP) – Stroke patients in the U.S. deserve equal access to high-quality rehabilitation that optimizes their chances of leading healthy, productive lives, U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk said Sunday, outlining what he calls his “stroke agenda� to eliminate disparities in care. The Highland Park Republican, who suffered a stroke in January 2012, said he has helped introduce legislation to set a national standard of care, expand access to highquality rehabilitation and help stroke victims return to work. Kirk, 54, was at Chicago’s Willis Tower to par-

ticipate in a stair-climb fundraiser for the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, where he underwent intensive physical therapy that pushed patients harder than traditional therapy to see if it led to a quicker recovery. Kirk climbed up 41 stories of the Willis Tower as part of a fundraiser for the rehabilitation hospital that treated him following his 2012 stroke. He bested his previous year’s effort of 37 stories. Kirk said all stroke patients should have a chance to go back to work, but only about one-third do so. “I don’t want them

Dixon, IL

to feel like they’ve been t h r o w n away,� said Kirk, adding that adopting U.S. Sen. a nationMark Kirk al goal of helping stroke patients return to work “will serve our country very well.� Kirk, who sometimes uses a wheelchair, returned to Washington – climbing the 45 steps at the Capitol – almost a year after suffering a stroke that limited movement on the left side of his body and affected his speech. Dr. Joanne Smith, president and CEO of the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, said care varies widely across

the country because of resources, expertise and ignorance about the benefits of rehabilitation, but also because of differences in what insurance companies will pay. Kirk said his federal insurance paid for 51 physical therapy sessions, while Medicaid patients in Illinois get four. “When I was at RIC, I constantly was asking what happened to other, low-income citizens of Illinois,� said Kirk, who says he has dramatically increased his walking speed with ongoing therapy. “The worst and lowest care you could receive is lying on the bed and watching TV. That’s no way to move forward.�

Langloss: Contract comparable to cities similar in size CONTRACT

CONTINUED FROM A1

Nord completed two interviews and met with department heads, city employees, and elected officials for a “finalist day,� according to the Oct. 25 news release. Several counteroffers were made during the negotiations, Langloss said Friday, adding that he couldn’t release specifics of the contract until it was placed on file. The contract is comparable to those in other area cities that are similar to Dixon in size, he said. “We made an initial

offer to David,� Langloss said. “He countered that offer, and then we had an executive session, a couple executive sessions, to discuss that. The city re-countered, and then it came back to us. And then we met in executive session [Oct. 24], and then the council was provided terms that were in agreement to David Nord.� Nord also was president of the Illinois City/ County Management Association, a support and networking group of professional city administrators throughout the state. Nord served on the ethics committee for this organization for 7 years.

A concern for offenders’ privacy? I

n September, we reported on a fatherand-son duo who attacked Benjamin Brainerd in Sterling earlier this year. The father, James Velasquez, asked Brainerd whether he was gay. Brainerd said he was, and the two men beat him up, leaving him with thousands of dollars in medical bills. Velasquez and his son, Nicholas, were charged with hate crimes and aggravated battery, both felonies. This fall, they pleabargained their charges down to misdemeanor battery and agreed to pay Brainerd’s medical costs.

Why did the state’s attorney sign off on the lesser charges? One of the reasons, Whiteside County Assistant State’s Attorney Brian Brim said, was because the office had several witnesses who claimed that the assault was not accurately represented by Brainerd. As such, this newspaper sought records associated with the case. Through a Freedom of Information Act request to the Sterling Police Department, we got Brainerd’s statement to a police officer. But the police didn’t have the statements from the Velasquezes or a man who was with them

her emailed response in its entirety: “My concern is meeting with victims, hearing their concerns, keeping them informed and explaining decision-making to them. In addition to focusing on the victim, I also consider privacy and safety issues of witnesses to crimes and the impact on future and pending investigations/ cases when providing information about specific cases. This is true even when a case is concluded.� Are prosecutors really that concerned for the privacy of the Velasquezes, two of the three witnesses? They pleaded guilty and agreed to pay Brainerd’s

bills. As for the other witness, Joyce could have simply redacted his name. Joyce’s assistant prosecutor made a statement, and we wanted to see documents to back it up. Now, it looks like the community will have to take the statement on faith. Again, Joyce’s decision to keep the document secret was perfectly legal. But there’s a moral dimension to this. Should even the victim be kept out of the loop? David Giuliani is a news editor for Sauk Valley Media. You can reach him at dgiuliani@saukvalley or 800-798-4085, ext. 525.

SOCIAL SECURITY

Poll: Older Americans nix benefits changes More support for hikes that affect wealthier seniors CHICAGO (AP) – Raise the age at which you can begin collecting full Social Security benefits? Older Americans say no. They also veto reductions in the cost-of-living increase. But a poll finds support among those 50 and older for raising the cap on earnings that are taxed to fund

the Social Security program so higher-income workers pay more. The survey by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds passionate opposition to any change in the way Social Security benefits are calculated that could result in smaller annual raises. The poll found that 62 percent of respondents expressed opposition to such a proposal, compared with 21 percent who supported it.

The chained CPI, or consumer price index, has been proposed as a new way of calculating the cost-of-living adjustment, but it would reduce raises. “I really think it’s a sacred cow,� said Margie Nugent, a 55-yearold farmer from North Umberland, Pa. “They shouldn’t touch it.� About the same number, 58 percent, oppose gradually raising the age when retirees qualify for full benefits, while 29

percent support it. About one-third believe people should be eligible for full benefits before 65. Only 10 percent say full eligibility should come after 67, the top eligibility age under current law. “I contributed to it. It’s my money,� said Joan McDonald, 65, of Annapolis, Md., who retired as an accountant this year and began collecting Social Security. “The plan was, ‘Contribute this and you get this.’ You can’t change the rules.�

WASHINGTON

Survey respondents showed more willingness to support Social Security proposals that would mostly impact those with higher incomes. Forty-one percent expressed support for reducing benefits for seniors with higher incomes, compared with 44 percent who opposed the proposal. Whites were much more supportive of reducing benefits for high-earning seniors than minorities. Changes to Social Secu-

rity are on the horizon because the trust funds that support the massive retirement and disability program are projected to run dry in 2033. At that point, Social Security would only collect enough taxes to pay about threefourths of benefits. If Congress doesn’t act, benefits automatically would be cut by about 25 percent. A new round of budget talks underway in Washington could produce proposals to change Social Security.

Food stamps cut for 47M Americans Vietnam Green Beret accused of murder, conspiracy, is dead

Reduction was meant to be timed with U.S. recovery

WASHINGTON – Some 47 million poor Americans who rely on food stamps for their meals will have to get by on less, after their benefits were cut Friday. “The impoverished are forced to eat junk if we want to eat,� said 32-yearold Tabitha, a mother of a 2- and 7-year-old staying at a Culver City, Calif., shelter, who asked her last name not be used to save embarrassment. “It’s going to be difficult, as it already has been. I don’t understand why there’s all this government funding, all these programs, and why feeding down-and-out people is not as important as it should be.� The cut was triggered by the expiration of stimulus spending Congress approved in the depths of the Great Recession. But it is unlikely to be the last; in Washington, the House and Senate are trying to reconcile measures each approved that would reduce food stamp spending by billions of dollars more.

AP

Larry Bossom, 41, who lost his job a few month ago, leaves the St. Ignatius food pantry with bags of items Friday in Chicago. Bossom is relying on food stamps and the food bank to help him until he finds work again. More than 2 million lowincome Illinois residents who receive food stamps will now have to get by on less. A temporary increase in food stamp dollars from the 2009 economic stimulus expired Friday. Friday’s benefit reduction was meant to be timed to a brightening economy, yet many Americans remain stuck in poverty despite improvements from the worst of the recession. “I think it’s a horrible thing,� said Najuah Mudahy, 30, also of the Culver City shelter, a food stamp recipient who works two jobs, as a clerk at a shoe store and a host-

ess at California Pizza Kitchen. They bring in $9 an hour. Mudahy said she runs out of money to keep her 3-year-old daughter fed before the end of every month, even on dinners of canned soup. “It only forces people to do desperate things,� she said of the cuts. Food advocates say there are millions of others in similar predicaments and

implored Congress to stop seizing on the program for budget trims. Even before Friday, government statistics show, the benefit fell short of keeping those on food stamps well nourished. In California, the monthly allocation for a family of four with no income has now dropped to $632. The benefit varies around the country, based on the cost of living.

In 1969 Col. Robert Rheault landed a longcoveted assignment in Vietnam: commanding the Green Berets, the daring U.S. Special Forces group championed by President John F. Kennedy and glorified by John Wayne. He had held the job for only 3 weeks, however, when a scandal broke – one that Time magazine would later call “second only to the My Lai killings.� Rheault (pronounced Roe) and five of his men were accused of murder and conspiracy in the death of a suspected South Vietnamese double agent. When questioned by his superiors, Rheault said the man was away on a secret mission when in fact his body had already been dumped in the South China Sea. The lie enraged Gen. Creighton Abrams Jr.,

the U.S. commander in Vietnam, who ordered courts-martial for Rheault and his subordinates. But a few months later, President Richard Nixon’s Army secretary abruptly overruled the general and the charges were dropped, an extraordinary turn that not only deepened the mystery surrounding the case but allowed perplexing questions to fester about the morality of the Vietnam War. “War,� Rheault once observed, “is a nasty business, with a lot of high-minded objectives, like freedom and fighting the aggressor, to justify killing people.� A decorated West Pointer who helped rehabilitate traumatized Vietnam veterans after resigning from the Army, Rheault died Oct. 16 of natural causes at his home in Owls Head, Maine, said his wife, Susan St. John. He was 87.

ILLINOIS LEGISLATURE

Tax-break deals put heat on lawmakers Several legislators call for increased scrutiny CHICAGO (AP) – Once again Illinois lawmakers are considering a list of tax breaks and other incentives to keep some companies in state and attract others – would-be deals that even many supporters say the state needs a more comprehensive method to scrutinize in the future. The most widely publicized would give up to $24 million to an agribusiness giant, Archer Daniels Midland Company, to keep a new global headquarters in the state. Another would give breaks to the company that emerges from the soon-to-be-completed merger of OfficeMax Inc. and Office Depot Inc., if it chooses Illinois as it headquarters rather than Florida. Others would give perks to makers of online video games and a chemical distribution company contemplating moving its headquarters to Illinois. Lawmakers meeting this week in the fall legislative session are typically under pressure to act. But there’s no certainty the packages would be approved if they’re called for a vote. Illinois’ troubled finances make the timing difficult and there are still some doubts about the wisdom of big deals the state has offered other companies in recent years. Even if some of the proposed incentives are approved, some lawmakers say there’s a feeling in Springfield that a harder look is needed at how Illinois grants tax incentives and other perks. “There are some of us, we talk about it a lot. We’d love to make it happen,� said state Rep. David Harris, an Arlington Heights Republican. “It’s not going to happen in the next two weeks, I can tell you that,

AP

In this July 2, 2009 file photo, an Archer Daniels Midland Company tanker truck is parked at the ADM plant in Decatur. A tax-incentive package to keep the ADM international headquarters in the state is one of several similar deals that could come before the state legislature during its 3-day veto session beginning Tuesday. but it does need to happen.� The state’s primary tools for businesses it’s either trying to keep in Illinois or recruit to the state are so-called EDGE tax credits. Officials with the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity tout how the credits come with job-creation or retention requirements and provisions that require companies to give money back if those goals aren’t met. Economists – most of whom don’t like the tax breaks – say that seldom if ever are such incentives a deciding factor in whether a company relocates. But with the difficult economy in recent years and rival states’ governors making highly publicized appeals to lure away

companies and jobs, politicians find themselves in a position where it’s exceedingly difficult to say no. Illinois’ almost $100 billion in unfunded pension liabilities, multibillion-dollar backlog in payments to service providers and 2011 temporary income tax increase make the state particularly vulnerable. “I can see where it’s like having a gun to your head, and what are we going to do?� said Therese McGuire, a professor of management and strategy at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management. In 2011, Illinois agreed to a deal worth several hundredmillion dollars for Sears Holdings Corp. and CME Group Inc., which operates the Chica-

go Mercantile Exchange, after both threatened to leave the state. The deal was paired with an earned income tax credit for average Illinoisans to make it more appealing. Among the incentives deals that could come up during this week’s session in Springfield: Under ADM’s plan to establish a new global headquarters outside Decatur, the city will keep thousands of jobs, but 100 at the top of the company are going elsewhere. Chicago is considered a top contender among a number of interested cities, and Illinois lawmakers quickly put together a $24 million incentives package. State Sen. Andy Manar, a Bunker Hill Democrat, last week added an amendment

requiring that the company create more jobs in Decatur, a proposal the company supported. But Gov. Pat Quinn has promised to veto the ADM package unless lawmakers fix the pension crisis first. Officials aren’t yet discussing the exact value of the OfficeMax request, but the Naperville-based company would have to retain about 2,000 jobs and create about 200 more. Company officials plan to make a decision where to base a new headquarters by the end of the year. Zurich North America insurance wants a payroll tax break in exchange for relocating its Schaumburg offices to another location in Schaumburg. The company would retain 1,000 jobs, create at least 250 more and make capital investments of at least $128 million. Univar, a chemical distribution company based in Redmond, Wash., is seeking incentives worth $5 million to move its headquarters to Downers Grove. Univar would keep 100 jobs at its two current Illinois locations and add at least 69 jobs. Fred Crespo, a Hoffman Estates Democrat, is pushing incentives legislation for High Voltage Software, a video-game maker in his district. The bill would give the company tax credits it says it needs to compete with mainly Canadian competitors. Barbara Flynn Currie of Chicago, the second-ranking Democrat in the Illinois House, has called the requests for such tax breaks the equivalent of blackmail. But she says she isn’t sure the General Assembly can do anything more ambitious to evaluate the incentives in a larger, systematic way. “Legislating that, you can’t do,� she said. “It becomes very difficult if there are companies out there that want to use those incentives.�

The maneuvering by Chancellor Angela Merkel and other senior politicians in Germany to form a viable new government is important for Europe, and beyond. Unfortunately, the alarming partisan budget standoff in Washington, D.C., preoccupied most related media attention. Democratic President Barack Obama’s obstinate refusal to negotiate with Republican House Speaker John Boehner brought the United States to the very brink of financial default. That was averted, but disturbing images of extreme partisan rigidity linger. In Germany’s national elections on Sept. 22, the ruling conservative Christian Democratic Union and partner Christian Social Union won the most seats in the lower house of parliament, but fell five short of a clear majority. Their coalition partner Free Democrats, advocates of liberal free markets, lost all seats in the election. While several weeks have passed with no new coalition, there is no sense of imminent crisis but rather an orderly search for compromise. On Oct. 17, Chancellor Merkel’s parties and the left Social Democrats publicly announced agreement to begin formal negotiations to create a coalition government. The Social Democrats, the other major political party, advocate a nationwide minimum wage as one price of a new “grand coalition� government. Higher taxes on the wealthy is another contentious issue. ANDREA NAHLES, general secretary of the Social Democrats, is adamant in defending policy positions but also willing to talk. German politicians well understand that stressful and unpleasant negotiations are unavoidable if democratic politics is to function effectively. The talks began Oct. 23, the day before Merkel departed for a European Union summit. A series of European summits since the severe financial crash and lingering recession of recent years have featured demands from German representatives that Greece and other members hold to agreed austerity measures. Ger-

many’s status as, by far, the largest and strongest manufacturing economy on the continent provides powerful leverage. Germany has largely succeeded in securing greater financial discipline within the EU, especially on heavily indebted nations of southern Europe. Merkel is adept at limiting domestic nationalist political pressures to abandon the leadership role, which includes underwriting the solvency of n a t i o n s Arthur I. many GerCyr mans view as profligate. The success of this balancing act reflects her skill in persuading her constituents that Germany cannot reasonably avoid cooperative engagement with Europe. IN GREECE, fierce public resistance to austerity led to growing support for the far-right Golden Dawn party, widely viewed as neo-Nazi. In 2012 elections, the party received enough votes to enter parliament, but has since become mired in controversy over alleged criminal behavior. Despite those tensions and others, the EU has remained intact and euro zone financial meltdown averted. Financial services remains a realm where the United States, and also the United Kingdom, are more important than Germany in global terms. Predictions years ago that Frankfurt would supplant London, and perhaps eventually New York, have not been realized or even approximated. However, given the present interconnectedness of the global financial system, the financial failure of Greece and other debt-burdened EU member nations could result in another recession, perhaps even a world crisis. This reinforces the role of Germany, especially but not exclusively in Europe. Germany’s politicians likely will establish a national governing coalition soon. Chancellor Merkel’s disciplined, lowkey and sensible style is especially popular with today’s Germans. Washington politicians should learn from this example. Note to readers: Arthur I.

‘Ender’s Game’ blasts to top of weekend box office LOS ANGELES (AP) – Weekend moviegoers chose sci-fi over slapstick. “Ender’s Game� scored the No. 1 slot at the weekend box office, earning $28 million in its opening weekend and sending “Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa� into second place, according to studio estimates Sunday. Lionsgate’s adaptation earned an additional $2 million in five international territories. Based on the novel by Orson Scott Card, “Ender’s Game� stars Asa Butterfield and Harrison Ford as intergalactic soldiers. Comments made by Card expressing opposition to gay marriage led some to call for a boycott of the film. But a strong

first-place opening met the studio’s pre-weekend expectations. However, ticket sales didn’t come close to the opening weekends of other young-adult adaptations such as “Twilight� and “The Hunger Games.� It did fare better than “Beautiful Creatures� and “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.� “‘Ender’s Game’ is a big budget movie that could be the start of a franchise,� said box-office analyst Paul Dergarabedian of Rentrak. “This time of year is not exactly a hotbed of milliondollar openings, but once they launch worldwide, it will do well.� A representative for Lionsgate declined to be interviewed for this story.

Rock Falls Council scheduled to meet ROCK FALLS – The

ond weekend, with a domestic total reaching more than $62 million. It also picked up $6 million in international ticket sales.

Other films opening this weekend didn’t generate as much enthusiasm. CBS Films’ “Last Vegas,� featuring an allstar cast of silver screen veterans including Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline, opened in third place, with $16.5 million. “It’s interesting to see the number of stars that are not in their 20s in the top films,� Dergarabedian said. “‘Ender’s Game’ has Harrison Ford and Viola Davis, and ‘Last Vegas’ is like a ‘Hangover’ for the older crowd. Sandra Bullock and George Clooney (in ‘Gravity’) appeal to an older audience, and ‘12 Years a Slave,’ which continues to impress as

it expands into more and more theaters, is a very sophisticated drama.� Relativity Media’s 3-D animated kiddie flick “Free Birds,� with characters voiced by Owen Wilson, Woody Harrelson and Amy Poehler, debuted in the fourth spot, with $16.2 million. After its fifth weekend at the box office, the Warner Bros. 3-D stunner “Gravity� is still holding in the fifth position. It banked $13.1 million over the weekend, bringing its domestic total to $220 million. Internationally, it gained $27.1 million. Considered an Oscar contender, “12 Years a Slave� earned $4.6 million at No. 7 in its third weekend.

Thanks to veterans not always welcome Dear Abby: Recently I took a cue from my sister and her career Navy husband. They always make it a point to thank anyone they see in military uniform for his/her service and sacrifice. I am somewhat shy by nature. But I am so thankful to these men and women who fight for our continued freedom that I stepped out of my comfort zone to verbalize my feelings and encourage those who cross my path. Abby, the first and second

DEARABBY !BIGAIL6AN "URENS *EANNE 0HILLIPS COLUMN APPEARS DURING THEWEEK THROUGH 5NIVERSAL 0RESS 3YNDICATE

thank-yous I offered did not go well. The first gentleman I spoke to gave me a scornful look and pro-

ceeded to tell me I should be thankful for all military personnel – not just him – and especially those who gave the ultimate sacrifice of their lives. I felt 3 inches tall and very embarrassed, but I chalked it up to perhaps having said thanks the wrong way, so I tried again. This time I thanked a World War II veteran. I recognized him as a vet by the emblem on the bill of the cap he was wearing. His response was, “Didn’t have a choice – it

was the draft or jail.� Maybe I’m not cut out for verbalizing my thankfulness, or maybe I’m doing it wrong. Now my shyness has taken over again. Should I silently offer a prayer of thanks instead? Twice Bitten in Washington

statement should have been: “Of course you are right. And I am grateful. But you are here, which is why I’m expressing my thanks to you.� Period. As to the WWII vet who entered the service one jump ahead of the law – give him marks for honesty in admitting his reason Dear Twice Bitten: The for entering the military first person you spoke was less than patriotic. to may have lost some But please don’t stop friends recently, which is offering thanks. What you why he spoke to you the experienced was some way he did. Your response bad beginner’s luck, but to the service member’s each time you express

your gratitude, the odds will improve. Dear Abby: What do you do when your daughter chooses to raise her kids entirely differently than she was raised, and when she comes for a visit, there’s no regard or respect for your stuff? – Up In Arms in Florida Dear Up In Arms: You childproof your home, or make sure to see your grandchildren only at their home.

Opponents should pay for mistakes

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

P.G. Wodehouse, my favorite author, said, “Golf, like measles, should be caught young.” He could have also added bridge to that sentence. And sometimes when you have the opponents caught, do not let them escape – double and extract a penalty. One aspect of that will be my theme this week. Opener bids one of a suit and the next player doubles. What does responder’s redouble mean? He promises at least 10 high-card points and denies four-card or better support if partner opened in a major, and denies five-card or better support if partner bid a minor. After this redouble, the

simplest rule is that either the opening side plays the contract or the intervening side plays in something doubled – as in today’s deal. When South doubles, West

should smell blood. He redoubles, planning to double anything the opponents try. Here, maybe North should immediately bid one notrump as he does not have four cards in an unbid suit. But one no-trump doubled can cost 1,100. Against two clubs doubled, West leads the spade queen, then shifts to the diamond 10. East wins that trick and switches to a trump, ducked to West. He leads another diamond and East returns his second trump. West wins and plays a third diamond, East taking the trick and switching to the heart eight. West wins and now has a hard play to find. If he leads a trump into South’s acequeen, the penalty is also 1,100. Anything else and declarer escapes for “only” 800. © 2013 UFS

LOS ANGELES

Gunman tells police he acted alone in shooting 23-year-old remains in hospital LOS ANGELES (AP) – The gunman charged in the deadly shooting at Los Angeles International Airport lay bloodied and handcuffed on the floor of Terminal 3 after being gunned down by police, but he replied to critical questions that helped authorities lock down the scene. Paul Ciancia, 23, was hauled away moments later on a stretcher and later Paul h e a v i l y Ciancia sedated for medical reasons, but not before he told investigators he had acted alone when he opened fire in the terminal, a law enforcement official who has been briefed on the investigation told The Associated Press on Sunday. Ciancia, an unemployed motorcycle

mechanic who recently moved to Los Angeles from the small, bluecollar town of Pennsville, N.J., also told police a friend had dropped him at LAX on Friday just moments before he shot a Transportation Security Administration officer at point-blank range and wounded three other people, including two more TSA workers. Officials do not believe that the friend knew of the shooter’s plans. Ciancia arrived at the airport in a black Hyundai and was not a ticketed passenger. Ciancia was under 24-hour armed guard at the hospital Sunday after being shot four times, the official said. He was sedated for medical reasons, the official said, adding that one gunshot to the mouth blew a molar out of his jaw. Ciancia is facing charges of murder of a federal

The charges could qualify him for the death penalty. It wasn’t immediately clear when he would make a

back to see Hernandez move and returned to finish him off, according to surveillance video reviewed by investigators. He then fired on two other uniformed TSA employees and an airline passenger, who all were wounded, as he moved methodically through the security checkpoint before airport police shot him as panicked travelers hid in stores and restaurants. It wasn’t clear why Ciancia targeted TSA officers, but what he left behind indicated he was willing to kill any of them that crossed his path, authorities revealed. The shooter’s duffel bag contained a handwritten letter signed by Ciancia stating he’d “made the conscious decision to try to kill� multiple TSA employees and that he wanted to “instill fear in their traitorous minds,� FBI Agent in Charge David L. Bowdich said.

CANADA

Toronto mayor apologizes, won’t step down Ford: I’m going to weather this storm TORONTO (AP) – Toronto Mayor Rob Ford apologized Sunday for being “hammered� in public and acknowledged the need to curb his drinking, but the mayor of Canada’s largest city didn’t address allegations of drug use and said he will remain in his job despite mounting pressure to resign. “I’m going to weather this storm,� Ford said. Ford made his remarks on his local weekly radio show at a time when he is facing growing pressure to resign after police said they had obtained a copy of a video that appears to show him puffing on a crack cocaine pipe. Ford didn’t address the contents of the tape, saying he cannot comment on a tape he hasn’t seen.

“I just got to maybe slow down on my drinking,� Ford said. Ford acknowledged making “mistakes� and that he can’t change the past, but vowed “to ride the storm out.� “I want to move forward but to move forward I also have to make changes in my life which I will assure I will do,� Ford said. Ford declined to take a leave of absence or resign. “I sincerely apologize, there’s absolutely no excuse, no one to blame but myself,� Ford said. “I am going to fight like no one has seen before to win the next election.� Ford said he shouldn’t have been drunk in public when he appeared at the Taste of the Danforth street festival in August. “That was pure stupidity,� Ford said. “I shouldn’t have got hammered down at the Danforth. If you are going to have

You don’t make a public spectacle of yourself,� Ford said. Ford also said he got “a little out of control� after St.

Patrick’s Day in 2012. A city spokeswoman released last week an incident report from city hall security guards who said they witnessed a “very intoxicated’ Ford having trou-

ble walking and swearing at aides that day. The incident report said that at 2:30 a.m. on St. Patrick’s Day, Ford “visited the security desk alone with a half empty bottle of St. Remy French Brandy.� The report states the mayor said his car had been stolen and that he wanted to call police. Security told Ford his car was at home and took the bottle from him before finding him a taxi. Ford said you can’t be “running around with a half bottle of brandy� at City Hall at 2 a.m. On his radio show, Ford said he would agree to have a fulltime city driver, a proposal he had rejected before as a waste of taxpayers’ money. Ford, a burly populist who refers to his conservative supporters as “Ford Nation,� promised to end wasteful spending at City Hall when he became mayor 3 years ago.

WASHINGTON

Does Supreme Court case have a prayer? Obama sides with GOP lawmakers BY MICHAEL DOYLE -#4.EWS3ERVICE

WASHINGTON – Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida wants the Senate to keep praying before lawmakers get down to business. Texas legislators, too, want their daily prayers. And in an unexpected pew-sharing, the Obama administration has joined conservative state

and federal lawmakers in urging the Supreme Court to tolerate prayers during government meetings. “For a few minutes each morning, politics and party are set aside,â€? Rubio and 33 other senators advised the Supreme Court in a legal brief. “Instead of debate, senators reflect on their duty ‌ mindful of the nation’s core values and their need for divine assistance in carrying out their responsibilities.â€?

In truth, few senators are usually present during their chaplain’s daily prayer. But on Wednesday, they’ll be paying heed as the future of such legislative prayers comes before the Supreme Court. Starting in a modest-sized city in upstate New York, the case has grown into a potential First Amendment thunderbolt. “I think that this is such an important and interesting case; really,

really important,� said Pamela Harris, a visiting professor at Georgetown University Law Center. “This is a court that’s been very receptive to the claim that there needs to be more room for religion in the public square.� The case called Town of Greece v. Galloway, though, almost certainly won’t be a simple referendum on whether legislative prayers violate the First Amendment’s prohibition against the

government establishing a religion. Prayers by political bodies, which in the United States date several centuries, seem safe. “The reason legislative prayer is constitutional is because it’s been done since the (nation’s) founding, including by the Congress that promulgated the First Amendment,� former Solicitor General Paul Clement noted. At the same time, the case gives the closely

divided court its first opportunity in three decades to clarify the rules governing legislative prayers, potentially in a way that affects other public religious expressions, as well. Justices might resolve when public religious expressions become coercive or construed as an endorsement. They also might decide whether coercion or endorsement provides the right test for evaluating public religious expressions.

Wary employers hold back many blind job seekers

AP

Marie Hennessy, president of the Perkins School for the Blind Alumni Association, leaves a job fair for the visually impaired with her guide dog, Azalea, and a volunteer guide (left) on the Radcliffe Yard campus Thursday in Cambridge, Mass. Despite technological advances that dramatically boost their capabilities, blind people remain largely unwanted in U.S. workplaces.

WASHINGTON

White House: No clemency for Snowden WASHINGTON (AP) – The White House and the leaders of the intelligence committee in Congress are rejecting National Security Agency-contractor Edward Snowden’s plea for clemency. “Mr. Snowden violated U.S. law,� White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer said Sunday about the former systems-analyst-turnedfugitive who has temporary asylum in Russia. “He should return to the U.S. and face justice,� Pfeiffer said, adding when pressed that no offers for clemency were being discussed. Snowden made the plea in a letter given to a German politician and released Friday. In his onepage typed letter, he asks for clemency for charges over allegedly leaking classified information about the NSA to the news media. “’’Speaking the truth is not a crime,� Snowden wrote. Snowden’s revelations, including allegations that the U.S. has eavesdropped on allies including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, have led to calls by allies to cease such spying, and moves by Congress to overhaul U.S. surveillance laws and curb the agency’s powers. But head of the Senate Intelligence Committee said if Snowden had been a true whistle-blower, he could have reported it to her committee privately. “That didn’t happen, and now he’s done this enormous disservice to our country,� said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif. “I think the answer is no clemency.� The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Mike Rogers, called clemency for Snowden a “terrible idea.� “He needs to come back and own up,� said Rogers, R-Mich. “If he believes there’s vulnerabilities in the systems he’d like to disclose, you don’t do it by committing a crime that actually puts soldiers’ lives at risk in places like Afghanistan.�

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) – Back in the late 1980s, when Maura Mazzocca was a human resources administrator with a Boston-area firm, a blind man showed up to apply for a job. Today, she remembers the encounter ruefully. “What I kept thinking about was, ‘How can this man work in a manufacturing company?’� Mazzocca recalled, saying she looked past his abilities and saw only his disability. “I wish now I’d given him a chance.� That reflectiveness is heartfelt. Mazzocca lost her own eyesight in 1994

through complications related to diabetes. Now as a job seeker herself, she knows firsthand the many hurdles the blind must overcome in pursuit of full-time work. At a job fair last month for blind and low-vision people, there she was going table to table, with a sighted volunteer by her side. Some of the other 80 job seekers carried white canes, a few had guide dogs. Like the rest, Mazzocca was greeted with firm handshakes and encouraging words – but none of the employers she spoke with had job openings matching her interests

and qualifications. The venue was the former Radcliffe College gymnasium where Helen Keller exercised en route to becoming the first deaf/blind person to earn a bachelor of arts degree in 1904. Over the ensuing decades, Keller helped increase public awareness of blindness and empathy for those affected by it. Yet blind people remain largely unwanted in the U.S. workplace, despite technological advances that dramatically boost their capabilities. Only about 24 percent of working-age Americans with visual disabilities had

full-time jobs as of 2011, according to Cornell University’s Employment and Disability Institute. “There’s a lot of stigma, a lot of obstacles,� said Mazzocca, 51. “It comes down to educating employers... It’s going to take a really long time, if ever, for them to see us for who we are and what we bring to the table.� What they bring, according to national advocates for the blind, is a strong work ethic, plus deeperthan-average loyalty to their employers. That’s in addition to whatever talents and training they bring, just like any other applicant.

BELVIDERE – The Dixon Dukes came into Saturday morning’s Class 2A Belvidere Sectional with a title in mind. They left with some fuel for their fire for next weekend. Led by top-five finishes from seniors Simon Thorpe and Cody Sondgeroth, the Dukes placed second to Vernon Hills. Dixon’s 99 points was more than double Vernon Hills’ 45, and left the Dukes feeling a little out of sorts. “I don’t think any of us are happy with what we did today,” said Sondgeroth, who placed fifth in 15 minutes,

31.61 seconds. “It’s not as good as we wanted, but we still have the chance to make up for it with a better day in Peoria.” Joining the Dukes at Detweiller Park will be Sterling freshman Jonathan Landis, whose time of 15:45.68 placed him 13th and earned him the fifth qualifying spot of the seven runners not on the top five advancing teams. “I just tried to stay with Thorpe, but I went out too fast trying to do that,” Landis said. “The second mile caught me a little, and once I slowed down, I couldn’t get going again.” PURSUIT CONTINUED ON B3

You’ll laugh ... you’ll cry Sterling’s Loos breaks leg in laugher on road BY STEVE NITZ Shaw Media

FOXBORO, Mass. – Perhaps his Huskies finishing off a 63-19 victory over UMass provided some salve, but Sterling native Tyler Loos will once again be a spectator for the tail end of the Northern Illinois football season. The 2010 Sterling High School graduate broke his left leg and dislocated his left ankle during the second half of the nonconference rout Saturday.

Broke left leg Saturday against UMass. ... Missed 2011 season with a torn ACL “I’m a little too emotional to talk about that,” Carey said after the game. “I know he’s in good hands.” Loos broke his right leg last year and missed the final three games of the season after missing the 2011 season with a torn ACL.

He had surgery Sunday morning in New England, and a member of NIU’s sports medicine staff is staying with him. AP Loos is expected to be back in DeKalb early this week.

Taking charge Johnson seizes Chase lead with dominating win BY STEPHEN HAWKINS !03PORTS7RITER

FORT WORTH, Texas – Jimmie Johnson is the leader again in the Chase for the Sprint Cup title after a dominating victory Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway. The five-time Cup champion knows all too well that his seven-point lead over Matt Kenseth is far from overwhelming with two races left in the season. Johnson also left the Lone Star State last November with a victory and seven-point lead — and lost the championship to Brad Keselowski. “I hope history doesn’t repeat itself,� Johnson said. “That is the perfect example of this thing isn’t over until it’s over. Last year we had eight great races and two bad ones and didn’t get the championship. ... There are two very important races left.� Kenseth and Johnson were tied in points when they got to Texas, though Kenseth was considered the leader based on his seven wins. Johnson led 255 of 334 laps for his sixth win this season while becoming

Jimmie Johnson fires pistols to celebrate winning the NASCAR Sprint Cup race on Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, Texas. Johnson took over the Chase lead with the win. only the second threetime Cup winner at the high-banked 1½-mile track. The No. 48 Chevrolet finished more than 4 seconds ahead of Hendrick Motorsports teammate Dale Earnhardt Jr.

“The 48 was in another class and nobody had anything for them,� said Earnhardt, who had his fifth runner-up finish this season and has been top 10 in all six of the last seven Chase

races. Kenseth was running second behind Johnson for much of the first half of the race before getting penalized for speeding. That dropped Kenseth to 16th place and more than 28 seconds back, though the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota recovered for a top-five finish. “We were just being too aggressive. Honestly, the 48 had us ... they were just dominant all weekend,� Kenseth said. “That speeding penalty got us behind us. We definitely didn’t need that, but really I don’t know at the end of the day that it really affected our finish much.� At Phoenix, where the Chase goes next Sunday, Johnson is a four-time winner and finished second in March. “I’m still confident,� Kenseth said.

NFL | BEARS (4-3) AT PACKERS (5-2) PREVIEW

Without wing, is there a prayer? Without Cutler, wideouts’ play crucial in rivalry matchup BY GENARO C. ARMAS !03PORTS7RITER

GREEN BAY, Wis. – Even without Jay Cutler, the Chicago Bears have a star receiver who can help make his backup look good. It’s up to Green Bay’s secondary to make sure Brandon Marshall doesn’t get that chance tonight at Lambeau Field. Josh McCown will start at quarterback for Cutler, out with an injured groin. Standing a sturdy 6-foot-4 and 230 pounds, Marshall is no pushover. The Packers must find a way to slow him and 6-foot-3 wideout Alshon Jeffery. “If you want to press them or not, just maintain your leverage,� said 5-foot-11 cornerback Sam Shields. “Playing great technique on them, not let them get explosive plays up the field.� Sounds easy enough, but statistics indicate it won’t be a cakewalk. This is an NFC North showdown, after all, between two teams that like to push each other around. A win for the Bears (4-3) would create a three-way tie atop the division with the Packers (5-2) and Lions, who are 5-3 and have a bye this week. Marshall has 46 catches for 540 yards and five touchdowns. Jeffery has 33 catches for 561 yards and two scores. “They use their size advantage to try to seek collision, push off, get separation,� Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers said. “They’re both very good with the ball after the catch. That’s the challenge is the size of these guys.� Don’t forget about 6-foot-6 tight end Martellus Bennett (32 catches, 356 yards, four TDs).

Marshall said. The Packers now feature a full complement of relatively healthy defensive backs, with the return of Casey Hayward last week from a

hamstring injury. Hayward had six interceptions last year. Shields is probable for the game after sitting out Saturday’s practice as a precaution. An offensive lineman stepped on his toes the previous day. Tramon Williams starts opposite Shields, while Davon House and rookie Micah Hyde have had their moments off the bench the last few

weeks, too. “We just have to go out there and be as physical as possible,� the 6-foot Hyde said. For all the consternation in Bears country about being down a starting quarterback, Cutler has been subpar against Green Bay. His passer rating against the Packers is 54.8, with eight TD passes, 17 interceptions and one win in eight starts.

Career paths developing Pitman eyes college, Sterling freshmen next prep season BY TY REYNOLDS treynolds@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 554

BELVIDERE – As Katie Pitman crossed the finish line, the Dixon senior realized she was probably too far from the front to finish her cross country career at the state meet. But after letting the raw emotions run their course, Pitman realized that her final high school race might be just the beginning. Pitman’s time of 19:05.68 was good enough for 23rd place overall Saturday at the Class 2A Belvidere Sectional, but was 37 seconds short of a berth at next weekend’s state meet at Detweiller Park in Peoria. “I’m not very happy, because I picked a bad day to run a bad race,� Pitman said. “I get anxiety really bad before big races, and when that happens, I take really shallow breaths. It’s hard to run well when you’re doing that, especially in this weather, and it cost me today.� Pitman got caught in the second pack behind the leaders, and couldn’t pick up enough spots to qualify for state. But she quickly recovered and found the determination and spunk that served her well all season as Dixon’s top runner.

I’ll learn from this, and hopefully just keep getting better.â€? That chorus echoed in the Sterling camp. Freshmen Maggie McPherson and Megan Barnhart also just missed making state. While the two had mixed feelings about their first varsity sectional race, they both know it will be a valuable tool down the road. “I’m happy and sad about it, all at the same time,â€? said Barnhart, who placed 26th in 19:10.11. “I wish I had run better, but I’m happy with what I did during the race. Taking on the perspective that I’m only a freshman, just getting here and placing near the front is something I can be proud of.â€? McPherson was the top local finisher, placing 18th in 18:49.80. She ran near the front the entire race, but couldn’t find the kick she needed to pass enough girls in the end. Her time was 21 seconds out

of the final individual qualifying spot, which went to Prairie Ridge’s Erin Wagner in 18:28.65. “I think I could’ve done better, and I wish I would’ve been able to go faster, but I just couldn’t,� McPherson said. “I felt good at the beginning, but at the end, when I tried to kick it in, there was nothing there. I was upset at first, but there’s always next year.� Even before the boys race was over, Barnhart and McPherson spoke about their cross-training regimen and how soon they could start. The initial discussion was about swimming and yoga, all in the hopes of getting ready for track season in the spring. “This year, we had no idea what to expect going into any race,� McPherson said. “Now, Megan and I have a better understanding of what it takes to make it to state, what we need to do differently and what we shouldn’t do.� Dixon placed 13th as a team with 272 points, just ahead of 14th-place Sterling (291 points).

“But I bet there are a lot of freshmen that would pay to be going to state,� Landis said, “and I’m going to make the most of it.� There were actually six advancing teams, as Prairie Ridge and Grayslake Central tied for fifth with 181 points. Crystal Lake Central (102 points) and Kaneland (163) also moved on their full squads. Crystal Lake Central’s Ryan Pitner was the individual winner, as his time of 15:09.09 was the only one better than Thorpe’s 15:21.11. And while the senior had his sights set on a sectional title, he was just as happy to bring his team along with him to state. “It stings a little right now, because we wanted to win as a team, and I thought I could win individually,� Thorpe said. “But it’s pretty cool to be going to Peoria with all these guys. It’s a lot more fun to have company down there, and we’ve got a shot next week to run a better race and take home a bigger trophy.� Thorpe stayed out front for most of the race, only to see Pitner pass him with about 800 meters left. With the wind firmly in their faces,

Thorpe couldn’t get back up to speed and catch Pitner. “I kind of wish I’d just hammered all the way through the race, but I didn’t want to take on the wind and wear myself out,� Thorpe said. “Then that last half-mile, my arms froze a little and I couldn’t get back in front.� Sondgeroth felt the same way about his run. He stayed with the lead pack the whole way, but couldn’t muster a charge when Pitner and Thorpe started to break away. “I tried to stay up with them, but I dropped off a little bit,� Sondgeroth said. “I didn’t feel great before the race, and it wasn’t a very good day for a run, but I thought we all did pretty good. We’ll be ready for state next weekend.� Austin Trevino (27th, 16:05.20), Skylar Mitchell (29th, 16:07.30) and Evan Grady (42nd, 16:22.94) also counted toward the Dukes’ score, while Kylian Lally (99th, 17:13.38) and Blain Masterson (17:13.99) will also join in the road trip to state. “The work has been done; it’s just a little fine-tuning now,� Thorpe said. “The mental aspect of state is bigger, but today’s going to be fresh in our minds ... and we don’t want to let that happen again.�

Her father, Jim, held the 880-yard record in track for the Clippers. There will soon be another Grady on that wall of records in some fashion. “It feels really good, because my dad had a record in track, so now my name is right next to his,� Grady said. Grady finished with a time of 19 minutes, 33 seconds to safely qualify. Keeping pace with winner Kelsey Hildreth of Byron (18:29) or runnerup Kirstie Ramsey of AnnawanWethersfield (19:01) was unlikely, so Grady kept the runner just in front of her, Rockford Lutheran’s Emma Fenelon, within her sights. Fenelon finished fifth in 19:30. “If I was in sixth, I needed to just stay there or get ahead,� Grady said. “I just stayed there the whole race. I’ve run against these girls all season, so I knew what I had to do.� Velazquez squeaked into the seventh – and final – individual qualifying spot with a time of 20:08, good for 13th place overall. The closest runner who could have overtaken her for the final spot was Seneca’s Sarah Cameron, who took 15th in 20:10. “To be honest, I didn’t think I would be up there,� Velazquez said. “I thought I would be back more, but I wanted to make it to state really bad, and I tried my hardest.� The Rockets were hopeful of earning a team berth, but wound up 10th with 265 points. Annawan-Wethersfield (83), Byron (148), Ottawa Marquette (151), Henry-Senachwine (154) and Harvard (164) claimed the five team spots for state. “I wish our whole team could have went,� Velazquez said, “but I’m proud of myself for making it in the last spot. I’m excited for state.�

Last year’s state runner-up endured an injury-plagued season. She now plans to rest and, hopefully, come back stronger as a senior. “I just want to train really hard and smart,� Weidner said, “and come out next year and have the greatest season of my life.� Erie-Prophetstown finished 19th among 21 teams with 482 points. Corrie Reiley (40th, 21:16) led the Panthers. Newman’s Haley Simpson finished 23rd individually with a time of 20:32.

“Get out fast, run hard and don’t look back,� she said. Truesdell and the Rockets scouted the 3-mile Oregon Park West course earlier in the week. He had his runners lay back a bit in the early portion of the race, which goes up a steep incline, to conserve energy for later. He was pleased with the results. “The guys were telling me when they were coming down that hill, they were passing a lot of kids,� Truesdell said. “It was four points, so everything was a big deal.� Leading the way for the Rockets was freshman Brayden Hamblen, who took sixth with a time of 16 minutes, 24 seconds. He was pleased with his race, but more happy for the team. “It’s so much better to have my team with me and not just myself,� Hamblen said. “We all get the glory together.�

Seth Williams (9th, 16:27), Cayden Erickson (33rd, 17:28), Kasey Anger (56th, 17:52) and Jevon Hey (88th, 18:32) were the other counting Rock Falls runners. This marks the third time Rock Falls is sending a boys team to state, the other times being 1956 and 2010. Newman will also make its third appearance. It won a championship in 2009, and was 12th last year. “I love this group of kids,� said Micah Trancoso, the lone senior in the Comets’ lineup. “This is a very special team, especially the young guys and the juniors. I’m so happy to grab that spot away with this great team.� Leading the way for Newman was Bryson Reyes, 16th with a time of 16:42. He was followed by Drew Rosengren (19th, 16:58), Chris Ahlers (20th, 16:59), Trancoso (37th, 17:32) and Quincy Coomes (75th, 18:14). Coomes is coming off a bout of tendonitis in his right foot, and did not compete in the Bureau Valley Regional last week. He’s normally the team’s fourth finisher.

“I was a little out of it today,� Coomes said, “but I think I just need this week to get back, and I’ll be ready for state.� The Comets entered the Oregon Sectional as the No. 2 seed, behind Winnebago, in the Dyestat rankings, so they feel there is much room for improvement next week. “We wanted to win it. We wanted to battle Winnebago,� Trancoso said, “but at this point, we’re just happy we’re going. Next week is a whole different race, a whole different course, so we’ll see where the chips fall.� Bureau Valley placed seventh among 21 teams with 196 points. Leading the way for the Storm was Ryan Taylor, 25th with a time of 17:10. Erie-Prophetstown wound up 13th with 363 points. The top Panther was Braedon Bonnell, 46th with a time of 17:40. Amboy was 21st with 477 points. James Blackburn paced the Clippers with a time of 18:17, good for 78th place.

Russ Damhoff called it survival. With his starting point guard fouled out, and in a game that featured 61 total fouls, Damhoff’s Sauk Valley Community College Skyhawks pulled out an 81-75 victory over Milwaukee Area Technical College on Saturday. Sauk (2-0) swept its annual Sauk Valley Classic, and MATC (1-1) settled for its 61-55 victory over the St. Ambrose JV on Friday. Freshman Jacoby Posley led Sauk with 26 points, and David Newton and Chris Fritsch both added 11. After Carlos Hendrix fouled out, Chris Stovall

managed the offense masterfully, scoring six points but registering seven assists against one turnover. He also had eight steals. Sauk committed 12 turnovers. “For how physical it was, and for it being this early in the season, and fouling out our starting point guard, that’s a great total,� Damhoff said. Thomas Hood led MATC with 28 points. The Skyhawks now have 11 days to iron out some things – like 21-for-41 shooting at the freethrow line – before hosting Madison College on Nov. 13.

“This is going to set up really nice,� Damhoff said. “We’ll fix some things and be ready for Madison. If we can look things over, make some adjustments and build off this, I think we’ll be pretty good.� Girls swimming

With friends like these, huh? Kane’s Swiss League teammate stonewalls Hawks in debut BY CHRIS KUC #HICAGO4RIBUNE

CHICAGO – Patrick Kane gravitates toward goaltenders when befriending teammates. The winger needed no formal introduction to the Flames’ Reto Berra on the occasion of the goaltender’s first career NHL start. Kane became close with the Calgary goalie when they were teammates on ECH Biel-Bienne of the Swiss League – where Kane played during the lockout last season – so Kane was not surprised by Berra’s effort in the Flames’ 3-2 overtime victory over the Hawks on Sunday night at the United Center. “For whatever reason, I’ve always been pretty close with the goalies I’ve played with,� said Kane, who opened the scoring with a rocket from the left circle past Berra. “That was no exception. I knew him really well. He’s a good goaltender. He’s one of those goalies that never really quits and is never out of the play.� Berra proved that with 42 saves to halt the Hawks’ three-game winning streak. Kris Russell scored 1 minute, 32 seconds into overtime to win it for the Flames. Curtis Glencross had a goal and an assist, and T.J. Galiardi also scored for Calgary, but it was Berra who stole the show. “[Berra] was playing

Corey Crawford suffered the loss in goal, as the Hawks appeared

sluggish in the second of back-to-back games. After a scoreless first period, Kane circled to the left dot and let loose with a shot that sailed past Berra to the stick side. As the cheers from the crowd were fading, Galiardi answered 50 seconds later with a redirection of a long shot by Dennis Wideman. In the third, Glencross put the Flames in front,

but Calgary then ran into penalty problems and gave the Hawks a 5-on-3 advantage. After the first penalty expired, Hossa cashed in when the veteran rifled a onetimer off a pass from Kane with 4:19 remaining. Russell’s overtime winner came on a shot from the blue line that eluded Crawford (27 saves). “It was nice being down 2-1 to get a 5-on-3,â€? Kane said. “We had a couple of chances we didn’t score on, and then Hossa made a nice shot and we got ourselves ‌ a point out of it.â€?

Loos, the Huskies’ 6-foot-5, 282-pound starting left tackle, was named to the Mid-American Conference secondteam offensive unit last November. As for the Huskies’ drubbing of the Minutemen on Saturday, NIU’s first-half scoring summary went like this: Six-yard touchdown run by Jordan Lynch. Twenty-five-yard touchdown run, Lynch. Nineteenyard touchdown run, Lynch. Six-yard touchdown scamper by Cameron Stingily, 66-yard pass from Lynch to Juwan Brescacin and 15-yard Tommylee Lewis touchdown run on a reverse. No. 21 NIU scored at will in the first half of its 63-19 win at UMass, taking a 42-13 lead into halftime and not looking back. The Huskies, 17th

in the BCS standings, improved to 9-0 and 5-0 in Mid-American Conference play, their 22nd straight conference win. NIU’s starters were out of the game in the third quarter. Lynch finished the day with 119 rushing yards, averaging 7 yards a carry. He had five total touchdowns on the afternoon, despite playing just one series in the second half. NIU’s offensive line has been one of its main strengths all season, and all day Saturday, Lynch had plenty of time to throw. UMass (1-8, 1-4 MAC) had just one sack, and it was because of coverage in the secondary. NIU has some time off before taking on Ball State on Wednesday, Nov. 13. It will be a huge game when it comes to the MAC West title race, as well as the Huskies’ chances at a BCS bowl game.

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles celebrates after throwing a touchdown pass Sunday in Oakland. Foles threw seven TDs in the 49-20 Eagles victory.

Foles shreds Raiders Luck rallies Colts past stunned Texans "Y4HE!SSOCIATED0RESS

Nick Foles tied an NFL mark with seven touchdown passes and threw for 406 yards to revitalize Philadelphia in a 49-20 victory over the Raiders on Sunday in Oakland. The backup quarterback connected three times with Riley Cooper to become the seventh passer in NFL history with seven TD tosses in a game. Peyton Manning did it for Denver on opening night this season against Baltimore. Foles also threw scoring passes to Brent Celek, Zach Ertz, LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson. Colts 27, Texans 24:

Andrew Luck got off to a slow start before throwing three secondhalf touchdowns to T.Y. Hilton to overcome an 18-point halftime deficit in Houston. Case Keenum threw for 350 yards and three touchdowns in his second career start. But he had trouble moving the offense after halftime as the Texans, up 21-3 when head coach Gary Kubiak collapsed, lost their sixth straight game after opening the season 2-0 with Super Bowl hopes.

Seahawks 27, Buccaneers 24, OT: Ste-

ven Hauschka kicked a 27-yard field goal with 8:11 left in overtime, and the Seahawks overcame a 21-point deficit to beat the Buccaneers in Seattle. Trailing 21-0, Russell Wilson rallied Seattle (8-1). He threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Doug

Baldwin with 1:51 left in regulation to pull the Seahawks even. Wilson then led Seattle on a nine-play, 51-yard drive in overtime capped by Hauschka’s winner. Chiefs 23, Bills 13:

Sean Smith returned an interception 100 yards for a touchdown and Tamba Hali scored on an 11-yard fumble return in the Chiefs’ win over the Bills in Orchard Park, N.Y. Jets 26, Saints 20: Nick Folk remained perfect this season by kicking four field goals in East Rutherford, N.J. Rex Ryan’s defense held Drew Brees and the high-scoring Saints to six points in the second half, and New York had seven plays of at least 19 yards in an upset of the Saints.
