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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 â€˜stroke agendaâ€™ CHICAGO (AP) â€“ 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 â€œstroke agendaâ€? 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 Chicagoâ€™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 yearâ€™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. â€œI donâ€™t want them
to feel like theyâ€™ve been t h r o w n away,â€? said Kirk, adding that adopting U.S. Sen. a nationMark Kirk al goal of helping stroke patients return to work â€œwill serve our country very well.â€? Kirk, who sometimes uses a wheelchair, returned to Washington â€“ climbing the 45 steps at the Capitol â€“ 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. â€œWhen I was at RIC, I constantly was asking what happened to other, low-income citizens of Illinois,â€? said Kirk, who says he has dramatically increased his walking speed with ongoing therapy. â€œThe worst and lowest care you could receive is lying on the bed and watching TV. Thatâ€™s no way to move forward.â€?
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 â€œfinalist day,â€? according to the Oct. 25 news release. Several counteroffers were made during the negotiations, Langloss said Friday, adding that he couldnâ€™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. â€œWe made an initial
offer to David,â€? Langloss said. â€œHe 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.â€? 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 offendersâ€™ 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 Brainerdâ€™s medical costs.
Why did the stateâ€™s attorney sign off on the lesser charges? One of the reasons, Whiteside County Assistant Stateâ€™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 Brainerdâ€™s statement to a police officer. But the police didnâ€™t have the statements from the Velasquezes or a man who was with them

her emailed response in its entirety: â€œMy 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.â€? Are prosecutors really that concerned for the privacy of the Velasquezes, two of the three witnesses? They pleaded guilty and agreed to pay Brainerdâ€™s
bills. As for the other witness, Joyce could have simply redacted his name. Joyceâ€™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, Joyceâ€™s decision to keep the document secret was perfectly legal. But thereâ€™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.

Poll: Older Americans nix benefits changes More support for hikes that affect wealthier seniors CHICAGO (AP) â€“ 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. â€œI really think itâ€™s a sacred cow,â€? said Margie Nugent, a 55-yearold farmer from North Umberland, Pa. â€œThey shouldnâ€™t touch it.â€? 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. â€œI contributed to it. Itâ€™s my money,â€? said Joan McDonald, 65, of Annapolis, Md., who retired as an accountant this year and began collecting Social Security. â€œThe plan was, â€˜Contribute this and you get this.â€™ You canâ€™t change the rules.â€?
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 doesnâ€™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 â€“ 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. â€œThe impoverished are forced to eat junk if we want to eat,â€? 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. â€œItâ€™s going to be difficult, as it already has been. I donâ€™t understand why thereâ€™s all this government funding, all these programs, and why feeding down-and-out people is not as important as it should be.â€? 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.
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. Fridayâ€™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. â€œI think itâ€™s a horrible thing,â€? 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. â€œIt only forces people to do desperate things,â€? 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 â€“ one that Time magazine would later call â€œsecond only to the My Lai killings.â€? 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 Nixonâ€™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. â€œWar,â€? Rheault once observed, â€œis a nasty business, with a lot of high-minded objectives, like freedom and fighting the aggressor, to justify killing people.â€? 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.

Tax-break deals put heat on lawmakers Several legislators call for increased scrutiny CHICAGO (AP) â€“ Once again Illinois lawmakers are considering a list of tax breaks and other incentives to keep some companies in state and attract others â€“ 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 thereâ€™s no certainty the packages would be approved if theyâ€™re called for a vote. Illinoisâ€™ 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 thereâ€™s a feeling in Springfield that a harder look is needed at how Illinois grants tax incentives and other perks. â€œThere are some of us, we talk about it a lot. Weâ€™d love to make it happen,â€? said state Rep. David Harris, an Arlington Heights Republican. â€œItâ€™s not going to happen in the next two weeks, I can tell you that,
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.â€? The stateâ€™s primary tools for businesses itâ€™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 arenâ€™t met. Economists â€“ most of whom donâ€™t like the tax breaks â€“ 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 statesâ€™ governors making highly publicized appeals to lure away
companies and jobs, politicians find themselves in a position where itâ€™s exceedingly difficult to say no. Illinoisâ€™ 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. â€œI can see where itâ€™s like having a gun to your head, and what are we going to do?â€? said Therese McGuire, a professor of management and strategy at Northwestern Universityâ€™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 weekâ€™s session in Springfield: Under ADMâ€™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 arenâ€™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 isnâ€™t sure the General Assembly can do anything more ambitious to evaluate the incentives in a larger, systematic way. â€œLegislating that, you canâ€™t do,â€? she said. â€œIt becomes very difficult if there are companies out there that want to use those incentives.â€?

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 Obamaâ€™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 Germanyâ€™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 Merkelâ€™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 â€œgrand coalitionâ€? 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-
manyâ€™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. Germanyâ€™s politicians likely will establish a national governing coalition soon. Chancellor Merkelâ€™s disciplined, lowkey and sensible style is especially popular with todayâ€™s Germans. Washington politicians should learn from this example. Note to readers: Arthur I.

â€˜Enderâ€™s Gameâ€™ blasts to top of weekend box office LOS ANGELES (AP) â€“ Weekend moviegoers chose sci-fi over slapstick. â€œEnderâ€™s Gameâ€? scored the No. 1 slot at the weekend box office, earning $28 million in its opening weekend and sending â€œJackass Presents: Bad Grandpaâ€? into second place, according to studio estimates Sunday. Lionsgateâ€™s adaptation earned an additional $2 million in five international territories. Based on the novel by Orson Scott Card, â€œEnderâ€™s Gameâ€? 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 studioâ€™s pre-weekend expectations. However, ticket sales didnâ€™t come close to the opening weekends of other young-adult adaptations such as â€œTwilightâ€? and â€œThe Hunger Games.â€? It did fare better than â€œBeautiful Creaturesâ€? and â€œThe Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.â€? â€œâ€˜Enderâ€™s Gameâ€™ is a big budget movie that could be the start of a franchise,â€? said box-office analyst Paul Dergarabedian of Rentrak. â€œThis time of year is not exactly a hotbed of milliondollar openings, but once they launch worldwide, it will do well.â€? A representative for Lionsgate declined to be interviewed for this story.

Other films opening this weekend didnâ€™t generate as much enthusiasm. CBS Filmsâ€™ â€œLast Vegas,â€? 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. â€œItâ€™s interesting to see the number of stars that are not in their 20s in the top films,â€? Dergarabedian said. â€œâ€˜Enderâ€™s Gameâ€™ has Harrison Ford and Viola Davis, and â€˜Last Vegasâ€™ is like a â€˜Hangoverâ€™ for the older crowd. Sandra Bullock and George Clooney (in â€˜Gravityâ€™) appeal to an older audience, and â€˜12 Years a Slave,â€™ which continues to impress as
it expands into more and more theaters, is a very sophisticated drama.â€?

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

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 â€“ not just him â€“ 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, â€œDidnâ€™t have a choice â€“ it
was the draft or jail.â€? Maybe Iâ€™m not cut out for verbalizing my thankfulness, or maybe Iâ€™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: â€œOf course you are right. And I am grateful. But you are here, which is why Iâ€™m expressing my thanks to you.â€? Period. As to the WWII vet who entered the service one jump ahead of the law â€“ 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 donâ€™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 beginnerâ€™s luck, but to the service memberâ€™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, thereâ€™s no regard or respect for your stuff? â€“ Up In Arms in Florida Dear Up In Arms: You childproof your home, or make sure to see your grandchildren only at their home.
