SVM INTERVIEW | DAVID NORD, DIXON CITY ADMINISTRATOR

Taking job ‘worth the risk’ Dixon’s first city administrator sets up shop in Crundwell’s former office BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 529

DIXON – Dixon’s first city administrator is tied to a former city employee. Not by name or actions, but by how he got to Dixon and the office where he works, now that he’s here. David Nord was hired by the Dixon City Council during a special meeting Nov. 12. The next day was his first on the job, when he

moved into the office once occupied by then-City Comptroller Rita Crundwell. Crundwell’s 2012 arrest for stealing nearly $54 million from the city during 2 decades ultimately led to the City Council’s decision to hire a city administrator. Enter David Nord, who was born and raised in Garden Prairie, a small town less than 10 miles east of Belvidere. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Augustana Col-

lege and a master’s degree from Northern Illinois University. “In an awkward way, Dixon has done a service to other small towns,” Nord said. After Crundwell’s arrest, Illinois towns started to ask questions about their bookkeeping, he said, and many made appropriate changes. Nord spent 25 years as the village administrator in Cherry Valley, a suburb of Rockford, where he started as an intern while a student at

NIU, he said. He joined the city full time after earning his master’s and became its first village administrator. Cherry Valley, which had a population of about 900 at the time, hired him because village officials saw what tasks they could put on him and the value of having that position, he said. The village decided to keep that job after his departure and is seeking a successor.

David Nord Started as Dixon’s first city administrator Nov. 13.

Rescue personnel from Ashton, Franklin Grove, Rochelle and Ogle County work in the snow to free the driver of an overturned semitrailer Monday morning on South Chana Road near Ashton. Stephanie L. Williams, 32, of Stillman Valley, suffered minor injuries in the rollover.

Drivers put to first test of season BY CHRISTI WARREN cwarren@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 521

STERLING – Quite a few accidents were reported in Whiteside and Lee counties Monday, as the first measurable snow of the season swept the Sauk Valley. “It’s the first snowfall of the year,” Lee County Sheriff

John Varga said. “People forget how to drive during summer weather.” Varga noted that his agency responded to a number of calls about minor accidents, but that none involved injuries. In Ogle County, a Stillman Valley woman suffered minor injuries when the semitrailer

she was driving rolled over north of Ashton. According to a news release from the Ogle County Sheriff’s Department, the semi, driven by Stephanie L. Williams, 32, was southbound on South Chana Road at 10:37 a.m. Monday near state Route 38 when it crossed the road, went into

a ditch and rolled on its side. Williams had to be extricated from the cab by Ashton firefighters. She was taken to Rochelle Community Hospital, where she was treated for minor injuries and released. DRIVERS CONTINUED ON A2

Freedom Bank, which has branches in Sterling and Rock Falls, has been acquired by an Iowa-based holdings company. Heartland Financial USA Inc., through its flagship bank, Dubuque Bank and Trust Co., took control of the Sterlingbased Freedom Bank last week. No jobs will be lost in the deal, and the bank will look to add jobs, said Pam Topper, president of Freedom Bank. Freedom Bank was previously owned by River Valley Bancorp Inc. The transaction has been approved by regulatory authorities and the River Valley Bancorp board of directors, according to a news release. Freedom Bank’s locations in Sterling, Rock Falls and Seaton, Ill., will operate as independent subsidiaries of Dubuque Bank and Trust until at least the first quarter of 2014, according to the release. Additionally, Heartland Financial will apply for regulatory approval to consolidate Freedom Bank with Rockford’s Riverside Community Bank. Riverside Community Bank is also owned by Hearland Financial, and the holdings company prefers for its operations in the same state to be consolidated, said John Berg, vice president of marketing and retail banking for Heartland Financial. The holdings company also owns Galena State Bank and Trust Co., but no decision about consolidating it with the two others has been made, Berg said. For local business and retail customers, the deal will mean new lending and cash management services and deposit, fraud prevention, and investment products, officials said. The deal will get Heartland Financial closer to its goal of having $1 billion in assets in each state where it has operations, Berg said, adding that details and terms of the acquisition were not being released.

Her trailer was loaded with lime, which spilled into the ditch and a nearby cornfield. The crash remains under investigation. Dixon Police handled

He didn’t expect to be there for 25 years, he added, but had no hesitation taking it when offered. When Nord left, Cherry Valley’s population was more than 3,100. He recognized the risk of moving on from a village he knew well to a city that could change its form of government and have a new City Council, which could decide to not rehire him. “I felt it was worth the risk,� Nord said. “This community has a lot going for it. I want to be part of it.�

Among the positive Dixon aspects are the riverfront and the downtown TIF district, Nord said. He has sensed a City Hall that is ready to move forward and already has good lines of communication. “I’m thankful for the fact that some of the things Dixon is doing already, I won’t have to do,� he said in talking about department heads discussing projects so nobody is “caught off guard.� According to his contract, Nord has until Jan. 1, 2016, to establish his principal residence in Dixon’s city limits. He said he will likely wait until after the April

Arrive alive for Thanksgiving I

llinois State Police have a special incentive to enforce traffic safety laws as the Thanksgiving holiday approaches. It was 1 year ago today that a state trooper was killed in the line of duty by a motorist. Trooper Kyle Deatherage of St. Jacob died on Nov. 26, 2012, when he was struck by a passing truck while conducting a traffic stop. Deatherageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death is a tragic reminder for all drivers to slow down and exercise caution around police traffic stops, vehicle crashes, and stranded cars along the roadside because there could be pedestrians nearby.

Illinois union leaders are reportedly mulling several options about what to do in the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race. But the only thing the leaders appear to agree on so far is that anti-union Republican gazillionaire Bruce Rauner cannot be allowed to win. Some union honchos are looking at endorsing a candidate in the Republican primary. State Sen. Kirk Dillard, for instance, already has strong support from the Operating Engineers, a union that is now even more opposed to Rauner since the candidateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s endorsement by the strongly antiunion Associated Builders and Contractors group. Other unions have also taken keen notice of that endorsement. Surprisingly enough, Dillard is also being looked at by some public employee unions. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? vote on pension reform. Dillard told the Kankakee Daily Journal several days ago that he wants employees to pay more into the system and wants a later retirement age, neither of which appear to be in the cards at the moment. Dillard would know what was going on behind the scenes with the pension reform conference committee because his running mate, state Rep. Jil Tracy, sits on the committee. However he chooses to explain it, a â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? vote on pension reform could bring him closer to a possible union nod. Then again, Dillard told the Sun-Times last week that he had always supported pension reform and denied rumors that he was planning to vote against the bill. But even a pension bill â&#x20AC;&#x153;yesâ&#x20AC;? vote will not, in and of itself, prevent some unions from endorsing Dillard. DILLARDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S CAMPAIGN has struggled to raise money, barely able to meet its expenses (if that), so a labor endorsement would bring in much needed dollars. Unions have backed Dillard in the past, to the tune of $400,000 from public employee unions alone during his career. They know heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a social conservative (he was endorsed last week by noted figures on the far right like Phyllis Schlafly and Penny Pullen), but they feel they can at least get a fair hearing from him. Treasurer Dan Rutherford has tried to reach out to labor, particularly on the pension issue. He has attempted to steer away from taking a hard public line on pension reform, urging compromise. But Rutherford doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have

much history with the unions, so heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to work very hard to woo labor leaders if he wants their support. Dillard speaks their language, while Rutherford is more of an unknown quantity. Rutherfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign has far more money on hand than Dillardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, but nowhere near enough to compete with Rauner. STILL, DOES ANY candidate really want organized laborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s support in a Republican gubernatorial primary? If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll recall, a Capitol Fax/We Ask America poll conducted Aug. 21 found that a whopping 80 percent of likely GOP primary voters said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be less inclined to vote for a Republican candidate for governor â&#x20AC;&#x153;who received hundreds of thousands of dollars State Sen.

That particular faction is arguing hard for an all-out assault on Rauner during the primary. None of the other candidates would be nearly as hostile to laborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interest as Rauner would be, goes the reasoning. However, some labor leaders say that Gov. Pat Quinn has been moving to the opinion that running against Rauner might not be so horrible after all. Despite Raunerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potential to spend tens of millions of dollars next year, some Quinn backers think Raunerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s background gives them enough ammunition to thump him. Yeah, well, Rauner has enough of a personal fortune to stay on the air from now through next November without a break. His ads are already focused on painting Quinn as the bad guy, and that theme will only intensify if he wins the GOP primary. He could bury Quinn before the governor has a chance to bury him.

ENVIRONMENT

Petcoke joins coal as 4-letter word for many Oil refinery byproduct’s increasing presence raises residents’ ire

AP

A large mound of petroleum coke, or petcoke, is seen in the background near a residential neighborhood Oct. 25 on Chicago’s southeast side. The volume and size of petcoke piles has grown sharply – especially in the Midwest – and has sparked new waves of environmental concerns.

2014 ELECTION

CHICAGO (AP) – The images are startling. Billowing black clouds darken the daytime sky as wind-driven grit pelts homes and cars, forcing bewildered residents to take cover. The onslaught, captured in photos and video footage from Detroit and Chicago this year, was caused by the same thing: brisk winds sweeping across huge black piles of petroleum coke, or “petcoke,” a powdery byproduct of oil refining. It’s been accumulating along Midwest shipping channels and sparking a

new wave of health and environmental concerns. The piles are evidence of a sharp increase in North American oil production – particularly crude extracted from oil sands in Canada – that has been trapped in the Midwest because of limited pipeline capacity to carry it to the Gulf and West coasts. In Midwestern neighborhoods near refineries, the growing black mountains have brought outcries from residents and new efforts by lawmakers to control or banish the blowing dust. “We could barely open

the windows this summer, because the black dust was so bad,” said Susanna Gomez, 37, a mother and grandmother who lives on Chicago’s far southeast side. Alan Beemsterboer, whose family owns a nearby site that long has handled slag, asphalt and coal, and now, increasingly, petcoke, doesn’t understand the controversy. “This has been an industrial area forever – a coke plant used to be there. A steel mill used to be there,” Beemsterboer said. “Coal and petcoke are just dirty words now. “

Petcoke has been part of the American industrial landscape since the 1930s, when refineries began to “cook” residue left over from making gasoline and diesel into solid fuel that could be burned in power plants and cement kilns. But the sheer volume of petcoke that appeared suddenly in Detroit and Chicago this year – almost all of it in open-air piles – was unprecedented. Although petcoke is not classified as hazardous, it contains heavy metals, and inhaling the fine particles can cause respiratory problems.

TORNADOES’ AFTERMATH

Incumbent Quinn Quinn requests help for ravaged towns If declared major distaster areas, counties can apply for grants, low-interest loans has 4 challengers Cast of hundreds file nominating petitions on Day 1 SPRINGFIELD (AP) – Political battle lines were officially drawn Monday in the race for Illinois’ chief executive. Democratic incumbent Gov. Pat Quinn and four Republican challengers were among nearly 400 politicians who offered nominating petitions on the first day of filing. Hoping to replace Quinn as the first GOP governor in more than a decade are state senators Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard, venture capitalist Bruce Rauner and state Treasurer Dan Rutherford. Tio Hardiman of Hillside, the former head of anti-violence nonprofit CeaseFire, also filed to run in the Democratic primary against Quinn, who’s been governor since 2009. In the race to take on U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, the Senate’s No. 2 Democrat who is seeking his fourth term, state Sen. Jim Oberweis, R-Sugar Grove, and businessman Doug Truax of Downers Grove submitted nominating petitions. All nine candidates for the top-of-the-ticket races were represented at the head of the line when the doors of the State Board of Elections in Springfield opened at 8 a.m. That means they qualify for a lottery drawing to determine who, in their respective primaries, will be listed first on the ballot, said Rupert Borgsmiller, elections board executive director. Of the roughly 380 candidates who filed Monday, most had the same idea, lining up in the early morning hours to vie for the top ballot listing, considered a prime spot, because some voters choose the first name they see. “It’s like the excitement of the holidays. You come and stand in line with your comrades and hope for the best,” said Urbana alderwoman Carol Ammons, a Democrat seeking to replace retiring state Rep. Naomi Jakobsson, D-Urbana.

“It’s important to be here with e v e r y body else. My team w o r k e d hard, so I Dan want to take the petitions Rutherford in and get the race on.” Also filing for the vacant 103rd House district seat in east-central Illinois were Democrat Samuel Rosenberg of Champaign and Republican Kristin Williamson of Urbana. House candidates of established parties must gather at least 500 signatures; 1,000 for Senate hopefuls. Those running statewide must coax at least 5,000 people to sign petitions. Dec. 2 is the last day that candidates can file petitions. Those who want to object to petition signatures may do so until Dec. 9, Borgsmiller said, and the lottery for ballot position will be Dec. 11. That will be for top position among those in line first thing Monday, and those who file between 4 and 5 p.m. Dec. 2, and want to occupy the last place on the ballot – also a coveted position, because of voters’ whims. Despite the sub-freezing temperature Monday in Springfield, many candidates, including Kane County associate circuit Judge Marmarie Kostelny, who wants to fill a circuit judge vacancy, thought it was important to be there. “Judges are insulated from the political process,” the Elgin Republican said. “This is an opportunity to throw myself into it.”

CHICAGO (AP) – Gov. Pat Quinn asked the White House on Monday to declare 15 Illinois counties to be major disaster areas. That request came after a single storm system this month spawned 24 tornadoes in Illinois that killed six people and damaged or destroyed more than 2,400 homes in the state. Two of the tornadoes that touched down Nov. 17 were the strongest November twisters ever recorded in the state, the National Weather Service said in a news

release Monday that listed the strength and other details of each. “This was historic,” said Dan Smith, a meteorologist in Lincoln. It was Illinois’ deadliest November day of tornado strikes in the 63 years that records have been kept. In Indiana, 28 tornadoes touched down that day – a record for any November day there, according to the weather service – but no one was killed. Three people were killed in Michigan, including a boy who died Saturday of his injuries. The tornado that hit

the central Illinois community of Washington was one of the two most powerful EF-4 tornadoes and stayed on the ground for more than 46 miles – at least 16 miles longer than any of the other tornadoes. Three of Illinois’ six deaths were from the two EF-4 tornadoes, and a total of 147 people were injured – 125 of them in Washington – according to the weather service. On Monday, Quinn’s office said in a news release that if the governor’s request to President Obama is approved,

residents would be eligible to apply for grants and low-interest Small Business Administration loans and businesses would be able to apply for those loans as well. “We expedited the damage assessment process in order to submit this request and the required documentation as soon as possible,” Quinn said in the release. The release also said the federal government might help pay back state and local governments some of the money spent as a result of the earthquake.

STATE FISCAL CRISIS

Unpaid bills again near crest of $9 billion Schools, hospitals forced to borrow, cut, take on debt SPRINGFIELD (AP) – Illinois’ backlog of unpaid bills is growing once more and could climb to $9 billion by the end of December, officials said. “The state’s bill backlog fluctuates throughout the year, with numbers dropping in high-revenue months and rising in leaner seasons,” said Brad Hahn, a spokesman for Illinois Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka. The backlog typically ebbs and flows through-

out the fiscal year. The current backlog stands at about $8.8 billion – up from $6.1 billion by the end of the state’s fiscal year in June. The balance fell to $5.8 billion in May, as the state benefited from extra tax revenue as people paid income taxes. If the balance climbs to $9 billion in December, it would be the second year in a row that the figure climbed so high. “Although revenues have been up, we’re still in about the same place as far as bill backlog,” Hahn said. “Essentially the state is treading water.”

Saddled with an unfunded pension liability that stands at around $100 billion, Illinois for several years has delayed payment of billions of dollars in bills

Meeting â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Good Guyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; online requires serious search Dear Abby: May I address a question you printed on July 24? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Where Are the Good Guys?â&#x20AC;? has trouble meeting men and wrote about seeking sexual partners on Craigslist. You answered that there were no good men there. Well, I met my boyfriend of two years through a â&#x20AC;&#x153;no strings attachedâ&#x20AC;? ad I posted on Craigslist.

Dear Abby: When I was younger, I had problems with low self-esteem and also engaged in a series of meaningless relationships. From past experience, I strongly encourage this lady to have herself checked for STDs if she had unprotected sex with any of these men. Making sure you protect your health is a major step in learning to love and care for yourself. Also, when Mr. Right does come along, she wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to worry about her health status hanging over her head. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Have Really Been There in Denver

SANDY HOOK SHOOTING INVESTIGATION

Madness to shooterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s method remains mystery Judge to listen to 911 recordings before ruling on whether they will be released HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Why Adam Lanza went on his murderous shooting rampage at a Newtown elementary school is a mystery and might never be known, prosecutors said Monday in a report that closed out their yearlong investigation. Lanza, 20, was obsessed with mass murders and the 1999 Columbine High School shooting in particular, but investigators found no evidence he ever told others of his intentions to carry out such Adam an attack, accordLanza ing to the summary report by the lead investigator, Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Attorney Stephen Sedensky III. Lanza killed 20 first-graders and six educators with a semiautomatic rifle inside Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14. He also shot his mother to death inside their home before driving to the school, and committed suicide with a handgun as police arrived.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The obvious question that remains is: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Why did the shooter murder twenty-seven people, including twenty children?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Unfortunately, that question may never be answered conclusively,â&#x20AC;? the report said. Sedensky also said there was no clear indication why Lanza chose Sandy Hook Elementary for his rampage other than that it was close to his home. The report said Lanza had â&#x20AC;&#x153;significant mental health issuesâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in 2005, he was diagnosed with Aspergerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disorder â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but â&#x20AC;&#x153;what contribution this made to the shootings, if any, is unknown.â&#x20AC;? Aspergerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is an autism-like disorder that is not associated with violence. In a footnote, Sedensky said a computer drive recovered from Lanzaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home might include important evidence but is unreadable, and it is highly unlikely any data will ever be extracted from it. A timeline released with the report indicates that nearly six minutes passed between the arrival of the first Newtown

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, we have read the report, no, we cannot make sense of why it happened. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if anyone ever will,â&#x20AC;? Soto wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if we will ever be whole again, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if we will go a day without pain, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if anything will ever make sense again.â&#x20AC;? Sedensky has gone to court to fight release of the 911 tapes from the school and resisted calls from Connecticutâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s governor to divulge more information sooner. The withholding of 911 recordings, which are routinely released in other cases, has been the subject of a legal battle between The Associated Press and Sedensky before the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Freedom of Information Commission, which ruled in favor of the AP, and now Connecticutâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s court system. A Connecticut judge said Monday he will listen to the 911 recordings from the school before ruling on whether they can be publicly released. If the recordings are released, the AP would review the content and determine what, if any, of it would meet the news cooperativeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standards for publication.

Short books can give big advice

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

Short books that concentrate on one topic have enjoyed considerable popularity. This year, Audrey Grant put out “Five Steps to Simplify the Endplay” (Baron Barclay). The reader is given the five steps to work through when planning an endplay. There are 31 pages with illustrative deals covering these key aspects. Then there are 10 problems to solve, so the reader can check that the theory has been grasped. The main snag is that at the table, it can be harder spotting an endplay than executing it once the need is recognized. In this deal from the book, look at only the North and South hands. The contract is four spades. After West leads the diamond king, how

should South plan the play, given that trumps are breaking 3-2? Three no-trump would have been easy to make, and perhaps North, since he has

a strong doubleton, should have eschewed Stayman. But that would have ruined the lesson. South is in danger of losing three hearts and one diamond. He can hope that East has the heart ace, but better is to give West the lead with his known diamond queen when he must either lead a heart around to declarer’s king or concede a ruff-andsluff. This requires eliminating all the black-suit cards from West. South wins the first trick, draws trumps, and cashes his four club tricks. Then he leads a diamond. West takes declarer’s jack with his queen, but he is endplayed. In real life, the endplay will be unnecessary half the time, because East will have the heart queen – but not in books, magazines or lessons. © 2013 UFS

Change at the top for Wal-Mart BENTONVILLE, Ark. (AP) – Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is ushering in a changing of the guard as the world’s largest retailer confronts slower growth and challenges to its reputation. Doug McMillon, head of Wal-Mart’s international division, will succeed CEO and President Mike Duke, 63, when he steps down on Feb 1 after 5 years in those roles. McMillon, a 23-year company veteran, will become the fifth CEO since Wal-Mart’s founder Sam Walton. The change at the top is indicative of a recent shift in strategy at the company

best known for its cutthroat pricing and big box stores. McMillon, 47, is expected to infuse a youthful spirit into Wal-Mart’s culture at a time when the company is trying to reinvent itself to attract a generation of shoppers who gravitate toward tablets and mobile devices. The move also is a tes-

tament to the company’s continued focus on its international division. McMillon, who started at the company in 1984 as a summer intern, left and came back in 1990 to work at a Wal-Mart store before holding several jobs, including a 3-year stint as president and CEO of the Sam’s Club division.

NBA | BULLS

Rose to miss rest of season

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL | 2A STATE CHAMPIONSHIP | PREVIEW

Bulls likely to make changes to roster BY K.C. JOHNSON #HICAGO4RIBUNE

SALT LAKE CITY â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Chicago Bulls guard Derrick Rose will miss the rest of the 2013-14 NBA season after undergoing what the team described as successful surgery Monday morning to repair the torn medial meniscus in his right knee. That means Rose will have played in just 50 games over three NBA seasons. He missed all of last season after left knee surgery to repair a torn ACL, and he battled through four separate injuries during the shortened lockout season in 2011-12. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes with athletes in Derrick sports, luck has Rose a lot to do with Bulls it,â&#x20AC;? Luol Deng guard said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just bad luck. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to change anything. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still going to be Derrick. He still is going to work hard and come back even better. I really believe that he was better coming back from that ACL. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unfortunate that it happened. I have no doubt heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to come back and play great.â&#x20AC;? When Rose does return, he will do so to a substantially different Bulls team. Knowing Rose was returning from left knee surgery, the Bulls kept their highpriced core of Rose, Carlos Boozer, Luol Deng and Joakim Noah intact for one final championship run this season. Well over the luxury tax line, the Bulls face tough decisions regarding Deng, who is an unrestricted free agent next summer, and Boozer, a candidate for the amnesty provision. The Bulls won a first-round playoff series without Rose last season with a gritty bunch. And now Rose is gone â&#x20AC;&#x201C; again.

J.P. Neisewander has two interceptions and a fumble recovery in Newmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last three playoff games. The senior linebacker credits his teammates for giving him the chance to make big plays.

Right spot, right time Neisewander in the middle of Newmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defensive success BY DAN WOESSNER dwoessner@saukvalley.com    EXT

The ball bounced off Nate Terveerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s facemask and shot high up into the air during Newmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Class 2A second-round game against Eastland-Pearl City. The ball hovered in the air as J.P. Neisewander moved into position. The Newman senior linebacker felt time stop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When the ball is in the air like that, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like everyone stops moving,â&#x20AC;? Neisewander said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not thinking about anything else, just the ball. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not worried about the fact that six guys are going to try and hit you. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just all about catching the ball.â&#x20AC;?

Neisewander has been in the right place to make big plays in each of the last three Newman playoff wins. He had the interception against the Wildcatz. A week later against Momence, Neisewander had an interception on a similar play. He grabbed a tipped ball out of the air to stop a Redskins drive. Last Saturday, he was J.P. on the spot again, helping to halt a brief moment of hope for Mercer County. The Golden Eagles had forced a Jake Snow fumble with a hard hit during the third quarter of Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s semifinal game. On the ensuing drive, the Eagles put the ball on the ground, and it was Neisewander who recovered the ball. SPOT CONTINUED ON B3

Fleck returns to DeKalb with Broncos BY STEVE NITZ Shaw Media

DeKALB â&#x20AC;&#x201C; P.J. Fleck was beloved when he was a Northern Illinois receiver from 1999 to 2003. Fleck, who grew up in nearby Sugar Grove and won two 3A state championships at Kaneland, went on to play two seasons in the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers, and spent 2007 to 2009 as the Huskiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; receivers coach. However, Fleck since has become AP public enemy No. 1 among Huskies Jordan Lynch (6) will lead the Northern Illinois fans. In his first year as coach at Huskies against Western Michigan today at Huskie Western Michigan, Fleck has let his voice be known at the rival MAC Stadium. NIU is favored by 35 points.

When: 6 p.m. today Where: Huskie Stadium TV:%30. Radio:!West school, with his â&#x20AC;&#x153;Row the Boatâ&#x20AC;? mantra and energetic personality. Fans also werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happy with Fleckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s infamous one-day stint as offensive coordinator in February of 2012.

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how many seconds were left in Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s semifinal game when Staunton quarterback Jake Brunh hit receiver Marcus Sitko for a 33-yard touchdown pass to beat Auburn 32-28. Staunton trailed Auburn 28-18 with 5:17 left in the game. Staunton used some good defense, big plays on offense, and a 97-yard kickoff return to rally back.

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how many playoff games Aurora Christian had won in a row before losing to Stillman Valley 28-26 on Saturday in the 3A semifinals. The Eagles had won the last two 3A state titles, with their last playoff loss coming in 2010 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; also to Stillman Valley, 46-16.

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how many times that Stillman Valley has qualified for the state championship game. The Cardinals are 4-1 going into Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s matchup with St. Joseph-Ogden.

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the distance, in miles, Newman will be traveling from the high school to Huskie Stadium in DeKalb for the Class 2A championship game Friday. This marks the first year the finals are in DeKalb, and they will be there in odd-numbered years through 2021. When the Comets won their last state title, in 2010, they traveled 192.7 miles to Memorial Stadium in Champaign. Staunton, on the other hand, has a much longer bus ride.

Fleck praises former team FRIEND

CONTINUED FROM B1

However, Fleck hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t said anything negative about his alma mater since he took the Western Michigan job. As his 1-10 Broncos, listed as 35-point underdogs, take on NIU, a program looking for its second straight Bowl Championship Series bid, Fleck has nothing but praise for the Huskies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Northern has been very, very good to me; it holds a special place in my heart,â&#x20AC;? Fleck said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great place, special place that my family and everyone who has been around me truly respects. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done

4UESDAY .OVEMBER 

a tremendous job in the last few years. Really excited about going back.â&#x20AC;? Fleck is familiar with not only NIUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program, but the current players, as well. He was NIUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recruiting coordinator when the current fifthyear seniors were committing to the Huskies. He could have been running NIUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offense last season, but after agreeing to become offensive coordinator, Fleck resigned a day later to become the receivers coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The short stint was a surprise to players and coaches. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He got a better opportunity to go somewhere else, and you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t blame

the guy for doing that,â&#x20AC;? NIU senior guard Jared Volk said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great guy, great coach. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking forward to seeing him again [against] Western Michigan.â&#x20AC;? Fleckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debut season hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gone as he or Broncos fans had hoped. However, Western Michigan has fought through injuries all season. Fleck said the team is missing a number of starters, including last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s MAC Freshman of the Year, receiver Jamie Wilson. Fleck has gotten a number of facility upgrades since he arrived, and Rivals.com ranks the Broncosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Class of 2014 the top recruiting class in the conference.

SCHOOL SCHOOL

Newman Student B.L.I.N.D leaders help build Assets. Two times a month in homeroom, The B.L.I.N.D student leaders work with all the students at NCCHS building assets. Through classroom discussion, activities, and small group projects students have been learning about the 40 developmental assets and developing plans of how to implement the assets in their lives as young people, as well as, how to continue to improve relationships at Newman. Student leaders and the Adult B.L.I.N.D leaders meet several times a month to discuss the agenda and prepare for the homeroom.

BUSINESS BU SIN ESS CEO Program â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Whiteside Area Career Center What is CEO? CEO is a class, no wait; CEO is an experience of a lifetime for juniors and seniors in the Whiteside area who aspire to become entrepreneurs. During the course of this year, CEO students with have to create a class business as well as their own business at the end of the year. While we are not constructing our business plans, we tour area businesses and have speakers come talk to us about their business. Finally, I have found a class that WHDFKHV PH KRZ WR VXUYLYH LQ WKH UHDO DQG EXVLQHVV ZRUOG DIWHU , Ă&#x20AC;QLVK VFKRROLQJ 7KH PRUH effort that a student puts into the class, the more that students get out of CEO. 2Q 6DWXUGD\ 2FWREHU WK D IHZ &(2 VWXGHQWV VROG EDOORRQV IRU 7RXFKGRZQV IRU 7DWD¡V EDOORRQ UHOHDVH 7KH HYHQW WRRN SODFH DW 6WHUOLQJ KLJK VFKRRO¡V IRRWEDOO VWDGLXP 7KH &(2 VWXGHQWV ZHUH DVNHG WR VHOO  EDOORRQV IRU D GROODU D SLHFH 7R PDNH PRUH SURĂ&#x20AC;W WKH VWXdents decided to also sell baked goods.

I established a lot of trust and respect for those of my classmates who helped on Saturday, especially the boys who transported 400 balloons in two minivans. The students in CEO are so driven and motivated to help better the CEO program. There were a few mistakes that were made today, but these mistakes will help us in the future. We learned that wind can easily break a tent, that balloons will be impossible to untangle on a windy day, and that location plays a roll in your sales. Overall, I believe we had a very fun day and we were happy to help out with a good cause.

I thought this would provide an excellent opportunity for the kids to connect with the service men and women who currently serve or have served in the past. I also hoped it would create a learning opportunity for the teachers of the importance of Veterans Day. All the schools which we reached out to were more than happy to help us with the project, and hundreds of cards and pictures were created for us. The cards were put on the tables for the veterans to read while they waited for the food, and the pictures got mixed with the decorations posted though out the dining room.
