STERLING COUNCIL

City closer to riverfront control Council gives OK to sign Stanley donation agreement BY PAM EGGEMEIER peggemeier@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 570

STERLING – The city moved closer Monday to its goal of controlling all 35 acres of land along its riverfront.

The City Council voted 5-1 to approve a donation agreement with Stanley Black & Decker in which the manufacturer of tools and hardware would relinquish ownership of the National Manufacturing site on the north and south sides of the railroad tracks along the river. Council members had received a draft of the proposal during a closed session in August. The biggest concern for the

city throughout the negotiating process had been limiting its liability for environmental costs, City Manager Scott Shumard said last week. “The top priorities in this process have been to acquire ownership of all the riverfront property, while not being saddled with a huge amount of the environmental costs,” Shumard said. The agreement calls for Stanley to assume responsibility for

cleaning up any underground contaminants associated with the planned demolition of buildings. The city would be liable for above-ground contaminants such as asbestos and lead paint that would likely have to be dealt with during the renovation process. The city has said it plans to take down 6 of the 10 buildings included in the agreement. Shumard said the estimated demolition cost would be $1.5

million to $1.7 million. Second Ward Alderman Barry Cox cast the lone dissenting vote. He said his decision was based on the potential cost of the redevelopment project. “The cost of this could affect not just me, but my kids and grandkids,” Cox said. “I would rather see a private developer come to the area and throw some money at it.” RIVERFRONT CONTINUED ON A2

Arduini ending 60-year career after term Veteran official announces he won’t run again BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 525

STERLING – Tony Arduini, whose Whiteside County political career started even before Elvis Presley became a household name, said he will leave public office next year. On Monday, Arduini, 92, revealed he would not run for County Board in 2014. “It’ll be the first time in 60 years that I haven’t been on the ballot,” he said. Arduini, a Democrat who joined the board in 1965, was its chairman for two decades until he stepped down last year. Before he was a board member, he spent a dozen years as a justice of the peace, a now-eliminated position in which he heard traffic cases

wouldn’t seek the chairmanship for another term. The previous year, he suffered health problems, having spent 10 days in the hospital. In Arduini’s place, the board elected retired teacher Jim Duffy, D-Sterling, though it designated Arduini as vice chairman. Since then, Arduini has continued to have health issues. He hasn’t attended a board meeting since February, though he has shown up for some committee meetings. “It’ll be sad to see him leave,” said Sue Britt, D-Morrison, a longtime board member. “He’s had a good run and earned the respect of a lot of people. I just hate to see him go, but I know his health has not been the best.” At a board meeting last September, Arduini was honored for his service. Officials said he was the longest-tenured current county board member in Illinois. ARDUINI CONTINUED ON A2

The ceremony was unexpected for Arduini, a retired car salesman. His wife, Arlene, and other family members showed up. Duffy, who read a board proclamation that recognized Arduini’s service, noted he was only an eighth-grader when the chairman started. A standing ovation followed. Arduini, though, waved it off, embarrassed by the attention. “I don’t know what to say,� he said.

The agreement is the culmination of negotiations that began when the city was notified of Stanley’s plans to end its manufacturing operations in Sterling and Rock Falls. The company announced the National closure on May 26, 2010. “The city had some contact with Stanley, but with not as much success as we would have liked,� Shumard said. That was when Greg Hummel was hired by the city to lead the negotiations. Hummel, an attorney with Bryan Cave LLP, specializes in environmental law.

Closure wasn’t issue in contract talks But superintendent says teachers were ‘aware’ of Lincoln possibility

district staff members who have a teaching certificate, Juenger said. But he said the total amount could change if some teachers Michael move to a new Juenger pay grade, by receiving a master’s degree, for example. In the new contract, teachers will pay $60 a month more for insurance, Juenger said, adding that there hadn’t been an increase in 2 years. Closing Lincoln and reconfiguring the grade levels in different buildings would save at least $246,000 a year in the education fund and $70,000 in the operations and maintenance fund, according to Juenger’s proposal. The proposal comes in response to a projected $1.47 million deficit in the education fund for the 2013-14 school year, leaving a fund balance of $1.44 million.

tial closing were true. Juenger said they weren’t and that “we’ve had no talks about that.� On Monday, he said he was referring to rumors about Lincoln closing for this current academic year, and he said the board had not had formal talks about it closing in the future. “I had asked him that publicly because I had really wanted to know,� Sodergren-Baar said Monday. “I had heard that was a possibility.� That question came just 8 days before the start of the teachers union strike, which lasted 9 days before it ended March 13. Among the results of the strike is a contract with nearly $290,000 in raises for next school year: about $246,000 for certified staff and $40,000 for support staff, Juenger said. The raises for certified staff includes teachers and school

DIXON – Publicly, talks about closing Lincoln Elementary School weren’t known until Oct. 16, but the idea had been discussed within the school district for more than a year. Superintendent Michael Juenger asked Director of Buildings and Grounds Kevin Schultz to look into the feasibility of closing a school, and the decision to propose the closure of Lincoln Elementary, in an effort to reduce the district’s budget deficit, was “cemented� after all schools were visited earlier this year, Juenger said. During a school board meeting Feb. 20, Dixon Education Association President Sandra Sodergren-Baar asked Juenger, during the public comments portion of the meeting, whether rumors of Lincoln’s poten-

The education fund includes teacher salaries and educational programs, among other things.

Not a bargaining chip Both Juenger and Sodergren-Baar said the possibility of closing Lincoln was never discussed during contract negotiations. However, Juenger said teachers, because they had heard the rumors and Sodergren-Baar had asked, were at least somewhat aware that it could happen. “Were they aware of that possibility? I would have to say, yes,� he said. “Was it discussed during negotiations? No. To say it was something known among the negotiation team, I would have to say yes.� Because Juenger denied the rumors in February, Sodergren-Baar said the possibility of Lincoln closing wasn’t something on the minds of the negotiators. “I don’t think it would

have changed our strategy, but it certainly would have enhanced it,� she said. When the proposal to close Lincoln school was made public last month, SodergrenBaar said, she wasn’t shocked. “I was disheartened because I think that, you know, we want to do what’s best for kids,� she said. “I don’t know that this isn’t best for kids. ... I don’t know if I was surprised, given the climate of the state [with reduced education funding].� While the salary increases next year add to the district’s budget problem, Juenger points to the reduced level of funding from the state and federal governments as the major contributor to having to discuss closing Lincoln. The Dixon school board will meet Nov. 20 at Lincoln Elementary for its regularly scheduled meeting. Closing Lincoln won’t be on the meeting’s agenda as an action item, Juenger said after a public meeting last week.

Fiscal conservative leaving county board after 14 years Most members poised to seek re-election

Candidates collect signatures People have been picking up petition forms at the Lee County clerk’s office to run for county offices, including County Board, sheriff, treasurer and clerk. For County Board, candidates are required to have a certain number of signatures, depending on a formula based on past elections. No board candidate needs more than 20, according to the clerk’s office.

Candidates must file their petitions between Nov. 25 and Dec. 2. The seats for half of the County Board’s 24 members are up for election next year: District 1 s$AVID'USSE 2 $IXON s6ERN'OTTEL 2 RURAL3TERLING s-ARILYN3HIPPERT 2 $IXON District 2 s$ICK"INDER 2 #OMPTON s'ERALD,EFFELMAN 2 3UBLETTE

OBITUARIES Jessica J. Sergeant WALNUT – Jessica Jane Sergeant, 32, of Davenport, Iowa, formerly of Walnut, passed away Friday, Nov. 1, 2013, at Walnut Manor Nursing Home after a 6-year battle with Li Fraumeni disease, a rare cancer-causing disease. Jessica was born Sept. 12, 1981, in Walnut, the daughter of Jeff and Sally (Rodgers) Wallace. She was united in marriage to James Sergeant Jr. on Aug. 19, 2006, at Maxson Manor in Oregon. She worked at Allied Locke in Dixon for several years; at John Deere in Moline; and as a Tastefully Simple representative. Jessica loved to run, and was a member of the Rock River Road Runners. Despite having part of her lung removed, Jessica was determined to run as a member of the 2009-2010 Sauk Valley Community College cross country team that qualified for nationals. She always was an active person. She participated in basketball, softball, track, cross country, and karate. Jessica wanted to thank and remember all those who shared memories with her. These memories include swimming at the Walnut pool, scrambling for pennies at family reunions, running road races, her annual Fourth of July parties, family get-togethers at the Rock River, and playing at Grandpa Rodgers’ farm. She enjoyed spending time with her three beloved cats, Paws, Jasper, and Muffin.

Jessica was a true inspiration to all, especially through her battle with cancer. She was tougher than cancer. Never did she become disheartened. Cancer was not going to stop her from leading a normal life. Jessica said that if her life was summed up in three words, it would be: “Totally worth it!� She is survived by her husband, James Sergeant Jr. of Davenport; her parents, Jeff and Sally Wallace of Walnut; two sisters, Danielle Wallace of Walnut and Suzy Wallace of Naperville; one brother, Darrell (Leslea) Wallace of Sterling; her maternal grandparents, Kenny and Alice Rodgers of Sheffield; two uncles, James (Madolyn) Wallace of La Moille and Jerry (Chris) Wallace of Champaign; and one aunt, Judy Patton of San Diego. She will dearly miss her nephews, niece, and numerous cousins. She was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Marvin and Lorena Wallace of Walnut. A time of sharing will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday and a celebration of life at 2 p.m. Sunday at Garland Funeral Home in Walnut. Please feel free to wear the orange or gray benefit T-shirts to her services in honor of Jessica’s celebration of life. In lieu of flowers, a memorial has been established.

DIXON

Portion of Crundwell deal to be allocated BY MATT MENCARINI MMENCARINI SAUKVALLEYCOM    EXT

DIXON – The Dixon City Council authorized the use of some of the Rita Crundwell lawsuit settlement proceedings to pay Paula interfund Meyer loans, taking care of what Mayor Jim Burke said was a priority. The city has received $14 million of the $40 million out-of-court settlement with its former auditors CliftonLarsonAllen and Janis Card and Associates, as well as its former financial institution, Fifth Third Bank. The City Council allocated $8,678,083 to pay interfund loans, which is money it borrowed from its own operating funds. Paying off that debt is a must, Finance Director Paula Meyer said in the October town hall meeting about spending the $40 million. “That’s my feeling,� Meyer told the City Council on Monday

night. “And I felt like that’s the feedback I’ve gotten from all of you. And that’s the feedback I’ve gotten from a large majority of the population of the citizens who have talked to me directly.� Meyer said the city should have the rest of the settlement money by Thanksgiving, and hopefully have the funds from the sale of Crundwell’s property by the end of the year. Crundwell, the city’s former comptroller, is in federal prison after pleading guilty to stealing nearly $54 million in city funds over two decades. Also on Monday, the City Council approved a temporary ordinance to allow a fence at 422 E. Seventh St. to stay in its current location, which is on city property. The fence also is in compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act, City Attorney Robert Branson said. During an October City Council meeting, a resident raised a concern that it posed a violation due to her vision disability.

Meet-and-greet planned for today CONTRACT

CONTINUED FROM A1

There will be a public meet-and-greet for Nord from 6 to 7:30 p.m. today at The Next Picture Show. Nord’s proposed contract runs through May 31, 2015, which means it’s set to expire shortly after the next municipal election. Whether to renew the contract will be one of the first items the new or re-elected City Council will face. The proposed contract would start Nord’s salary at $101,500 and increase it to $105,000 on May 1, which is the same 3.5 percent raise all city employees will receive, Langloss said. He will receive the same benefits as those in the city’s other full-time administrative positions. Approximately 6 months from when Nord “assumes the duties of city administrator,� which could be as soon as Nov. 13, he will be evaluated by the City

Council. After that, his performance will be reviewed every year. “At the yearly evaluation he wants the [International City/County Management Association’s] 360 Evaluation so he can get full feedback, from not just the council but the department heads,â€? Langloss said. “And so he’s made that request. He wants to make sure that he knows he is fulfilling the expectations and doing a good job there.â€? Nord can be fired by the City Council at any time, but if done without “good causeâ€? he’ll receive a 6-month severance package – about $52,500 after May 1 – paid in one lump sum. According to the contract, reasons forĂŠ “good causeâ€? can include insubordination or failure to follow lawful written City Council directives, excessive alcohol use or the use of illegal drugs, making false statements on the

employment application, knowingly falsifying city records or documents, or “conscious misrepresentation of material facts to the City Council.� The severance package is the same as other similarly sized municipalities throughout the state, Langloss said, adding that the special committee used information provided by the Illinois City/County Management Association in its negotiations. In May 2015, the City Council will discuss whether to renew or extend the contract beyond May 31, 2015. If the City Council doesn’t renew or extend the contract for at least a year, with similar or agreed upon terms, the city will have to pay Nord the 6-month severance package. Nord will have until Jan. 1, 2016, to establish YEARS his “principle residency� in Dixon’s city limits. The city will reimburse him up to $2,500 for moving expenses.

The delay in this requirement, Langloss said, was because the contract only runs until the end of May 2015 and if he’s retained, Nord will have 6 months to establish the residency. In the future, all city administrators will have to live within the city limits. Nord also will receive $200 a month for using his personal vehicle and $30 a month to reimburse expenses related to his personal cellphone, in addition to other business-related expenses in accordance with the city’s expenses policy. The money for the cellphone, Langloss said, was primarily for the data plan because the city will want him to be connected while away from City Hall. Not providing Nord with a city vehicle, something he didn’t request, is a good deal for the city, Langloss said, comparing the cost of a $30,000 car to $2,400 a year.

No need for bureaucratic middleman I

t took years, but government is finally becoming more transparent, thanks to a nonprofit group. The other day, a story from July 2008 caught my eye. Sauk Valley Media was trying to get the salary for then-Whiteside County State’s Attorney Gary Spencer. The reporter called the county administrator’s secretary, who was reluctant to provide the information. The secretary asked for a Freedom of Information Act request before disclosing the figure. These days, you don’t need to go through any bureaucrat to get such information. For that, give credit to For the

Good of Illinois, a nonprofit group that tracks salaries for government entities across the state. Its website is at openthebooks.com. After a few clicks on the site, you’ll have to register. But it costs nothing, although the group accepts donations. I checked Spencer’s salary on the openthebooks. com and found that he made $167,467 in 2012, his last full year as state’s attorney. I got that information without pleading for it from anyone in county government. For the Good of Illinois has a relatively efficient way to obtain information on salaries from the thousands of government units in Illinois.

davidGIULIANI David Giuliani is a reporter for Sauk Valley Media. You can reach him at dgiuliani@ saukvalley. COMOR   EXT

It gets the information from the pension funds, which maintain internal databases. Can you imagine if For the Good had to issue a FOIA request to every single local entity? Last year, I wanted to know the salary for Sterling Township’s thenroad commissioner, Jim Lopez. For some reason,

it wasn’t on openthebooks.com. Township Supervisor Matt Howze declined to answer, even though he was considered the treasurer for the township road district. Such questions, he told me, should go to Lopez. “It’s professional courtesy,� he said. Wait, I protested; this is public record. Howze then told me to look at the township’s budget at the county courthouse. So I did. Unfortunately, that document included total salaries in each township fund, not salaries for specific employees. Howze’s other tip: File a FOIA request. We then sought the

entire list of employees and their salaries. We got Lopez’s salary from the budget – $44,000. But the list of employees and their salaries left a lot to be desired. It included employees in three categories – less than $15,000, more than $15,000 but less than $30,000, and more than $30,000. No specific amounts. Some employees were listed in two categories. That, Howze explained, was because they were paid from more than one fund. That was a frustrating endeavor, but I’m paid to seek information. Do you have the time to endure such unnecessary hassles?

For the Good of Illinois decided it shouldn’t be that hard, so it took the matter into its own hands. While I’m grateful for this group, it shouldn’t be left to a nonprofit to provide information that should already be easily available. To its credit, the state maintains an online database for state-level employees’ salaries, and it has been helpful. Why not extend this database to all public workers?

Woman in serious condition after Sunday highway crash

Veteran journalist, Bureau native dies

All four in car transported to area hospitals BY CHRISTI WARREN cwarren@saukvalley.com    EXT

ROCK FALLS – A South Beloit woman was in serious condition in a Rockford hospital on Monday after she was injured in

a Sunday morning crash on Interstate 88 west of Rock Falls. Michelle M. Jensen, 37, was one of four South Beloit residents who were injured when an SUV driven by a 16-yearold boy rolled over about 9 a.m. Sunday, according to a news release from the state police. All were taken to area hospitals. Police say the car left

the road onto the right shoulder before the driver overcorrected, causing the vehicle to cross both eastbound lanes, enter the median, and then roll. The three other people in the car, including the driver, were taken to CGH Medical Center. Jensen was taken to OSF St. Anthony Medical Center in Rockford.

LAKE ST. LOUIS, Mo. (AP) – Gilbert Stuenkel, a veteran journalist with a long career at newspapers in Illinois, Kansas and Missouri, has died. He was 69. Stuenkel, of Lake St. Louis, Mo., died Friday after a battle with cancer, his wife, Nancy, said.

editor. He left in 1984 to become managing editor of the Hannibal (Mo.) Courier-Post, where he worked until 1995. In Hannibal, Stuenkel guided the CourierPost’s coverage of the 1993 flood. Stuenkel moved to the St. Louis area in 1995.

For voters, halftime is here A

nyone familiar with football knows that halftime is important. While players take a breather, coaches assess the team’s first-half performance and make adjustments for the second half. A few choice words, spoken by coaches at maximum volume, might accompany those adjustments. Whether a team goes on to victory or defeat can often be traced to decisions made at halftime. Similarly, voters find themselves at a halftime of a different sort. Today is the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November. On even years, it would be Election Day in Illinois. On odd years, the day marks the halfway point between one election and the next. Maybe this electoral halftime is a good occasion to assess the performance of county, state, and federal elected officials at the midway point between elections. Are voters pleased with

The holidays are coming; give a paver KAY MILLER Dixon

Now is the time of year when we all start to think about what we can buy to give to that special person or family for Christmas. One great idea would be to give a paver on the Riverfront. There are three different sizes, with each size priced differently. They will last a lifetime for you and your family. You will be able to pick out the area on the riverfront, the size, plus inscribe it with your own words. The pavers will be inscribed in May 2014, weather permitting.

We also have benches, tables and an assortment of items that can be purchased and inscribed for gift giving. If a smaller gift comes to mind, pick up a bottle of our Riverfront wine at the Crystal Cork. It makes for a special gift to give to that host or hostess for that holiday party or dinner. It is sold only at the Crystal Cork, and if you need a basket to include other items along with the wine, the girls at the Cork can help you out. It can be wrapped, and ready to give. The Riverfront wine is a Muscato, and can be enjoyed at anytime, and with most foods. Samples can be enjoyed by stopping by the Crystal Cork at 219 W. First in Dixon or call 815-285-3496.

For any questions you may have, please call me at 815-440-7742 or visit us at www. dixonriverfront.net. Note to readers: Kay Miller is the executive director of the Dixon Riverfront.

Joy in buggy rides to see grandmother JEANNIE EICHELBERGER Rock Falls

I remember mom pushing us kids in the big baby buggy from Fairview south of U.S. Route 30 in Rock Falls, then down 12th Avenue, continuing north over the bridge to Sterling. The overpass wasn’t built yet.

She’d push us two in the buggy, walking over the railroad tracks in front of the mill. They were so bumpy. The view inside the mill was so scary to us little kids. We’d continue on Avenue G to West Lefevre and on to Grandma’s home just a few more blocks away. Grandma had a lot of land and a couple of small buildings on her property. In one of them, we used to search for treasures in the attic. We’d swing on the willow tree branches and on the rope swing. But the best part was just seeing our grandma. That buggy had a lot of miles on it. They don’t make buggies like that anymore.

The rich irony of Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan denouncing somebody else for attempting to be a “kingmaker� is so obvious and laughable that I can’t help but wonder why a guy who’s been a take-noprisoners kingmaker himself for so long in this state would ever think of saying such a thing. You may already know the story. The Better Government Association and the Chicago Sun-Times took a look at some of Madigan’s campaign petition passers to see whether they had government jobs. What they found wasn’t surprising at all. Seventeen of 30 people who passed Madigan’s nominating petitions worked for the government. Twelve others had at one time worked for the government. Power tends to feed off itself. The longer you’re around, the more power you tend to have, and the more power you have, the more you can get. And Madigan has been around Illinois and Chicago politics forever. He is at the top of the heap, as far as state government power goes. Ideologically, Madigan has moved with the times. Politically, the man is anything but postmodern. He’s the 13th Ward Democratic committeeman, and he runs his ward like it’s been run for a century or more. Running an old-time organization, however, requires old-style patronage, and Madigan is a master at finding jobs for his precinct workers. A GOOD CASE in point is Patrick Ward, a Madigan precinct worker. Ward was already drawing a public pension while working at Metra, but he wanted a raise and hadn’t received one, so he asked his sponsor for help. Madigan made a couple of calls, then backed off when the man who ran Metra objected to political interference. That guy eventually resigned with a golden parachute and a vow of silence. But when the media got wind of it, all heck broke loose, and all fingers pointed to Madigan. The Sun-Times and the Better Government Association’s investigation team took a look at Madigan’s most recent nominating petitions, noticed Ward was a circulator, then took a look at the other names. The BGA sent people door to door to talk to the other circulators and see whether they were the

same folks who popped up on their government employee searches. Some of those precinct workers alleged that they and their families were harassed, and Madigan got angry. So, Madigan unleashed a diatribe against the BGA and its leader, Andy Shaw, for being on “an unrelenting journey to become a kingmaker in Illinois politics.� He also blasted the organization for trying to undermine House the DemoSpeaker Michael cratic Party. Madigan Madigan is fiercely proD-Chicago tective of the loyal members of his 13th Ward organization, who are almost like family to him. A STATEMENT simply denouncing the BGA’s tactics would have been reasonable, although still ironic, considering how personally aggressive and “unrelenting� Madigan’s House campaigns can be. And some of the BGA’s political motivations and top contributors are also fair game. The group preaches political cleanliness, yet it doesn’t always associate with the cleanest of the clean. But all Madigan did with that “kingmaker� comment was turn the BGA’s Shaw into a folk hero and help Shaw raise lots more money. You’d think Madigan would comprehend the public consequences of such an over-the-top claim. The speaker has really been off his game the past several months. He literally ran away and hid from Chicago reporter Chuck Goudie a few months ago, which resulted in a humiliating story on the Chicago media market’s mostwatched TV station. He publicly tossed his own daughter under the bus after she blamed his resistance to retirement for her decision not to run for governor. And Madigan insulted Senate President John Cullerton last May by telling a Sun-Times reporter that Cullerton displayed a “lack of leadership� on pension reform. Polling has shown that the public’s awareness of Madigan has grown this year. And the public definitely doesn’t like the guy. Madigan is valued at the Statehouse for being the most grown up of the grownups. But he’s simply not acting that way of late.

OBESITY

Many health woes in teens seeking surgery Problems included high blood pressure, elevated problems CHICAGO (AP) – U.S. teens seeking weight-loss surgery have a startling number of health problems that used to be seen only in adults, according to a major governmentfunded study. Half the teens had at least four major illnesses linked with their excess weight. Three out of four had cholesterol problems; almost half had high blood pressure or joint pain; and many had diseased livers or kidneys. These kids weighed three times more than what is considered healthy, they weren’t just teens “who want to fit into that cheerleading outfit better,� said Dr. Thomas Inge, the study’s lead researcher and a surgeon at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. The study offers reassuring evidence that obesity surgery is generally safe for teens, echoing previous short-term research. While it is a drastic, last-ditch option, major complications including accidental injury to internal organs occurred in just 8 percent of teens. Less serious complications including bleeding and

Chelsea Hale poses outside her apartment in Fairfield, Ohio. Hale had obesity surgery in August 2010 at age 17 when she weighed 314 pounds and is now about 170 pounds. A government-funded study published online Monday in JAMA Pediatrics shows that teens seeking weight-loss surgery have a startling number of health problems that used to be seen only in adults. dehydration affected 15 percent of kids during the first month after surgery. The study involved 242 teens who had surgery at five U.S. centers from 2007 through 2011. Results for the first month after surgery were released online Monday in the journal JAMA Pediatrics. The National Institutes of Health paid for the study. In a recent scientific statement, the American Heart Association said obesity surgery may be the most effective

treatment for what it called “severe obesity� in teens, a condition it said affects about 5 percent of U.S. children and is increasing nationwide. The group’s threshold for severe obesity is a body mass index of at least 35; the average BMI in the study was 51. Because lifestyle changes and medication rarely work for such obese teens, the statement says obesity surgery should be considered for those with related health problems who are psychologi-

cally mature enough to handle it. The new results bolster evidence from smaller studies in teens and also suggest teens may do better, at least initially, than adults. Earlier 30-day research in adults found a few deaths after obesity surgery, although the risk was no greater than for other major operations. There were no deaths in the teen study. A 3-year follow-up report on more than 2,000 patients in the adult study was also published online Monday in the Journal of the American Medical Association. It showed adults generally had fewer obesity-related illnesses than in the teen study, and most weight loss occurred within the first year after surgery. Gastric bypass surgery, the most common operation in the U.S., resulted in more weight loss and more improvement in related illnesses than stomach banding, as other studies have shown. Three-year death rates were low, and similar for both procedures, but band patients had many more repeat surgeries. In the teen study, whether obesity surgery resulted in lasting weight loss and better health remains to be seen; the researchers are still following the participants and calculating data. But anecdotal reports from

the teens suggest they’re doing pretty well. Chelsea Hale of Cincinnati has shrunk from 314 to 170 pounds – almost half her previous size – since having surgery 3 years ago at age 17 at Cincinnati Children’s. Before surgery, Hale had a hormonal problem, heart blockage and sleep apnea – all linked with obesity and all have since subsided. “I feel good, I can pretty much physically do anything,� said Hale, now in nursing school. Like 28 percent of the teens studied, she had gastric sleeve surgery, which involves removing part of the stomach and creating a smaller tube or sleeve-shaped stomach. She has to be careful about eating only small portions of foods, to avoid getting sick, but said otherwise she has no food restrictions. Some teens in the study say they can no longer tolerate certain foods, including sugar, meat or dairy products. Most teens had gastric bypass or stomach stapling, which creates a small pouch in the stomach and attaches it to the intestines. A handful had gastric band operations, in which surgeons position an adjustable band around the top of the stomach, and inflate it to shrink the stomach. This operation has not been approved for U.S. teens.

PEKIN

Artist memorializes former high school just in time Painting took 25 hours, off and on, to complete PEKIN (AP) – Pekin artist Wallace Gent spends a great deal of his time capturing on canvas what is forever gone. Gent has painted pictures of the former Carnegie Library at the corner of South Fourth Street and Broadway Road, the old Opera House on the corner of Elizabeth and Capitol, the Pekin Theater on Capitol, the old railroad Terminal Station on lower Margaret Street – all from pictures of the former Pekin landmarks. He also painted a picture of the lower part of Court Street. It would appear that Gent’s decision to paint a landscape of Pekin’s West Campus recently came in the nick of time. West Campus is to be donated to a developer who, in the coming weeks or months,

will demolish the 1916 building, the theater and the classroom addition attached to it. “I painted it because of all of the talk here lately that they were going to tear it down,� said Gent, 77, of the painting. “I wanted to paint it before they tore it down.� It took him 25 hours, off and on, to complete the painting over 2 months. The painting depicts life on the campus in the 1950s. Parked in front of the school is a 1952 hard-top Chevrolet. The girls outside are in sweaters, poodle skirts and saddle shoes. The boys had the rolled-up jeans. The side of the building has the unmistakable “Boys Entrance� on the side. The painting is very detailed. The 1952 Chevy, a classic, was placed in the

photo to give it a timeframe. “I didn’t have a car,� he said. “That wasn’t mine – it was just to date the painting.� Gent attended the old West Campus, but left school in his sophomore year to join the Army and fight in Korea. Gent has been painting for 25 years. He now uses acrylics rather than oil paint because of the smell and drying time associated with oil paints. Gent paints landscapes, wildlife, westerns and cityscapes. Gent is self-trained, with the exception of art classes as a boy in school. His painting is a hobby. “I would be a starving artist if it was to support myself,� said Gent. Gent is unsure what he will do with the painting – sell it or keep it.

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

Moliere said, “If you suppress grief too much, it can redouble.” At the bridge table, suppressing knowledge about responder’s redouble can cause grief. Yesterday, we learned that after the opener bids one of a suit and the next player makes a takeout double, responder’s redouble promises at least 10 high-card points and denies good support for partner’s suit. In today’s deal, you will see that responder redoubles, then supports his partner’s heart suit. This shows exactly three-card support and game-invitational values, 10-12 support points and eight losers. (With a stronger hand, responder would jump-rebid three

hearts, a game force.) Opener leaps to four hearts. Note that opener’s secondround pass was forcing. Either the opening side buys the contract or the intervening

side plays in something doubled for penalty. And if South had immediately rebid in hearts, it would have shown a minimum (or subminimum) opening bid. Also, East’s twodiamond advance promised no strength. He was just indicating a preference for that suit over spades and clubs. Against four hearts, West leads the diamond queen. East takes dummy’s king with his ace, cashes the diamond 10, then shifts to a spade. How should South continue? West surely has the spade king for his double. So South is threatened with four losers: one spade, one heart and two diamonds. He should win with his spade ace, cash the club king, play a club to dummy’s queen, and discard the spade queen on the club ace. Then he leads a trump and claims shortly thereafter. © 2013 UFS

ORGANIZED LABOR

Illinois unions holding strong

Suspect charged in deaths

Other states have seen power diluted CHICAGO (AP) – Across the middle of the country, organized labor has taken one hit after another in places that were once union strongholds: Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin and Indiana, where workers lost bargaining power and saw their ranks shrink, leaving them weaker than almost any time in the past century. The notable exception is Illinois. Here, it’s almost as though the Great Recession and the Republican resurgence of 2010 never happened. Public employees still have their defined-benefit pensions. Unions still negotiate and collect dues. And little public blame has been heaped on labor for the state’s financial problems. But the ability of Illinois unions to withstand the pressures that broke down their colleagues elsewhere is back on display this week as lawmak-

ers try for the umpteenth time to confront the nearly $100 billion shortfall in the public-employee pension system, the largest in the nation. The Legislature is under pressure to consider slashing pension benefits or requiring employees to contribute more to their own retirement funds or to retire at a later age. It’s the kind of overhaul most states did several years ago to ease the crushing weight of growing obligations to retirees, combined with declining revenue. Or, lawmakers might do what they’ve done multiple times before: nothing. The outcome could determine whether Illinois’ dismal finances get a long-delayed fix or whether one of labor’s toughest redoubts reaffirms its power by holding off any major changes in benefits. “Whether you like that outcome or not, you have to say ‘That’s an organization that has some political strength, and that uses it,’� said Robert Bruno, a professor in the School of Labor and

Pat Quinn in protest, saying he betrayed the Democratic party’s tradition of supporting working men and women, during Governor’s Day at the Illinois State Fair in Springfield. The ability of Illinois unions to withstand the pressures that broke down their colleagues in other states could be tested during a veto session of the Illinois Legislature that begins today. Employment Relations at the University of Illinois. Much of labor’s success here, no doubt, derives from the fact that President Barack Obama’s home state is a citadel for Democrats who have long enjoyed a mutually beneficial relationship with unions. But Democrats aren’t

solely responsible for the current predicament. Some of the sharpest growth in employee benefits happened when Republicans were in charge. Even some of the most direct victims of the state’s woeful budget refuse to blame state employees and their

comparatively generous benefits. “We are a state that supports the workers. That’s just who we are,� said Judith Gethner, a lobbyist for hundreds of social-service agencies, mental health providers and other nonprofits that have waited months for Illinois to pay billions of dollars in unpaid bills. Gethner has pushed for state pension reform. But she says slashing employee benefits runs counter to the culture of a place where unions have long been “the backbone� of Chicago, with its outsize influence over the state and a history that traces back to the Haymarket riots and other labor milestones. Chicago Democrats control the most powerful jobs in the state – governor, House speaker and Senate president, plus attorney general and secretary of state. But the unions have maintained friendships with many moderate Republicans, giving them occasional endorsements and donating more to their campaigns than in neighboring states.

ILLINOIS GENERAL ASSEMBLY

Pension deal elusive in final days of fall session Legislature convenes today SPRINGFIELD (AP) – Lawmakers say they are making progress on a deal to solve Illinois’ $97 billion pension crisis, but are not confident there will be a vote as the annual fall legislative session enters its final days.

Legislative leaders have been meeting to try to bridge a gap between members of a special pension committee split over a savings plan. Some lawmakers say they still want to see more estimates. Democratic State Rep. Elaine Nekritz of Northbrook says it’s unlikely there will be a vote on pensions this week. She

says lawmakers could be called back for a special session later this fall if an agreement is reached. Lawmakers return to Springfield today. Among other issues they’re expected to consider are tax incentives for companies, stricter gun penalties, and same-sex marriage.

Police: Illinois man also robbed parishioners BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) – A 54-year-old Illinois man charged with first-degree murder in the deaths of his wife and mother in northern Illinois has been arrested on suspicion of using a shotgun to rob parishioners at a northwestern North Dakota church. Billy Varner Billy was arrested Varner Saturday night near Williston, N.D., some 1,000 miles from his home in Antioch, where the bodies of his wife, Peggy Henderson, 61, and his mother, Dorothy Varner, 82, were discovered Oct. 28. Cynthia Trujillo-Vargas, a spokeswoman for the Lake County state’s attorney’s office, said Varner was charged Monday with two counts of first-degree murder. Police have not said how the women died. Authorities say Varner walked into the Church of St. Michael in Ray during Mass shortly after 7 p.m. Saturday, told the three dozen parishioners to get on the floor and forced The Rev. Benny Putharayil to fill a black garbage bag with money. “He was yelling, ‘I don’t care, you die, you see my face. Don’t use your cellphones, and the gun is loaded,’� Putharayil said Monday. “I began to move down the pews, asking for money. There were a lot of tears and a lot of crying.�

EGYPT

Morsi defiant as his trial begins in Cairo Outsted president refuses to enter plea CAIRO (AP) – Ousted President Mohammed Morsi refused to wear a prison jumpsuit, entering the caged dock in a dark business suit as his co-defendants applauded. He defiantly questioned the legitimacy of the court and proclaimed himself still Egypt’s leader. His fellow Muslim Brotherhood members chanted, “Down with military rule!� Morsi’s long-awaited trial got off to a chaotic start Monday, with outbursts and interruptions, and it was quickly adjourned until Jan. 8. The dramatic first public appearance for Morsi since the July 3 military coup that removed him from power was meant to be a step toward due process. Instead, it highlighted the challenges facing

Egypt’s interim authorities as they attempt to close a chapter of his presidency, while his Islamist supporters seek to disrupt the effort. Morsi and 14 co-defendants – seven of whom are still at large – are charged with inciting the killing of protesters who massed outside the presidential palace in December 2012 and demanded that he call off a referendum on a new Islamist-drafted constitution. Brotherhood members attacked a sit-in by the protesters, sparking clashes that left 10 people dead. Before Monday’s session began, silent video broadcast on state TV showed Morsi arriving in a minibus outside the makeshift courtroom at a police academy in eastern Cairo. He wore the

encampments in August. Another defendant – an aide held with him in the secret military location – also was in a suit. Feisty and healthylooking after 4 months of secret detention, the 62-year-old Morsi immediately started talking even before Judge Ahmed Sabry Youssef gave him the floor. “What is going on now is a cover for a military coup,� Morsi shouted in a voice that echoed through the courtroom. “I warn everybody. ... I wish that the Egyptian judiciary would not become one day a cover for the military coup.� The defense lawyers clapped. Chants from his fellow defendants followed: “Down, down with military rule!� Youssef tried to calm the raucous scene. “This is enough. The

court wants to carry on and provide you with the guarantees necessary� for a fair trial, he said. But Morsi repeated at least four times, “I am the president of the republic.� He rejected the proceedings and said he had been forced to attend. “I am here by force and against my will. The coup is a crime and treason,� he said Morsi refused to enter a plea and demanded that he be given a microphone, although his voice was loud enough for everyone in the courtroom to hear. “This is not my court,� Morsi went on. “This court, with all due respect, doesn’t have jurisdiction over the president. There is a military coup in this country. The leaders of this coup must be brought to trial according to the constitution.�

Tehran rally shakes fist at America and outreach

Study: 8.8 billion planets like Earth

Protesters gather near U.S. Embassy TEHRAN, Iran (AP) – In Tehran’s largest antiU.S. rally in years, tens of thousands of demonstrators joined Monday in chants of “death to America� as hard-liners directed a major show of resolve against President Hassan Rouhani’s outreach to Washington more than a generation after crowds on the same streets stormed and occupied the U.S. Embassy. Such American-bashing protests occur every year outside the former embassy compound to mark the anniversary of the 1979 takeover following the Islamic Revolution. But the latest demonstration had a dual purpose of sending the boldest warning yet to Rouhani’s government over whether it can expand dialogue with the U.S. or offer the concessions needed to possibly settle the nuclear impasse with the West. “Fighting the global arro-

Iranian protesters burn an American flag during an annual anti-American rally Monday in Tehran, Iran. Tens of thousands of demonstrators packed the streets Monday outside the former U.S. Embassy in Tehran in the biggest antiAmerican rally in years, a show of support for hard-line opponents of President Hassan Rouhani’s historic outreach to Washington. gance and hostile policies of America is the symbol of our national solidarity,� said Saeed Jalili, who lost to Rouhani in June’s election and later was replaced as the country’s top nuclear negotiator. The choice of Jalili as

the main speaker to the crowd showed how high the rifts reach in Iran. Jalili is a leading voice of dissent over Rouhani’s overtures to Washington, but he is also a senior adviser to Supreme Leader Ayatol-

lah Ali Khamenei, who has given critical support to Rouhani’s initiatives. The growing tensions have left Khamenei – the ultimate decision-maker in Iran – in the unusual role of domestic diplomat.

He had stood by Rouhani in apparent hopes that the nuclear talks and outreach can ease Iran’s isolation from the West and roll back painful sanctions over Tehran’s nuclear program. At the same time, he cannot ignore Rouhani’s critics and seeks a middle ground built around his comments that American remains untrustworthy but Iran is strong enough to pursue talks and exchanges. Another key test comes later this week when nuclear talks resume in Geneva between Iran and six world powers, including the U.S. envoys. Negotiators left last month’s session expressing hope that Rouhani’s election – and full backing from Khamenei – could open room for progress in closing the gap between Western fears that Iran could eventually produce nuclear weapons and Iran’s claims that it only seeks reactors for energy and medical isotopes.

LOS ANGELES AIRPORT SHOOTING

MONEY & MARKETS

Suspect remains heavily sedated Attack could lead to change in airport patrol LOS ANGELES (AP) – The man accused of opening fire at Los Angeles International Airport, shooting employees and terrorizing travelers, accomplished two of his goals, according to authorities: killing a Transportation Security Administration officer and showing how easy it is to get a gun into an airport. The deadly rampage left investigators to piece together what motivated Paul Ciancia’s hatred toward the agency formed to make air travel safer after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. But the attack could ultimately lead to changes in the way airports are patrolled. Ciancia was shot four times by airport police, including in the mouth, and remains heavily sedated and under 24-hour armed guard at the hospital, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press on Sunday. The official was not authorized to speak publicly on the case and requested anonymity. The FBI said he had a handwritten letter, stating that he made the conscious decision to try to kill multiple TSA officers and “instill fear in your traitorous minds.� The unemployed motorcycle mechanic who recently moved to Los

AP

Transportation Security Administration employees classify the luggage to return to passengers at Los Angeles International Airport’s Terminal 3. A gunman armed with a semi-automatic rifle opened fire at the airport on Friday, killing a Transportation Security Administration employee and wounding two other people in an attack that frightened passengers and disrupted flights nationwide. Angeles from the small, blue-collar town of Pennsville, N.J., had a friend drop him at LAX on Friday just moments before he pulled a .223-caliber assault rifle from his duffel bag and opened fire, killing one TSA officer and wounding 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 is charged with murder of a federal officer and committing violence at an international airport, charges that could qualify him for the

death penalty. It was not immediately clear when he would make a first court appearance given his medical condition. In court documents and interviews, authorities spelled out a chilling chain of events, saying Ciancia walked into the airport’s Terminal 3, pulled the assault rifle from his duffel bag and fired repeatedly at 39-year-old TSA officer Gerardo I. Hernandez. He went up an escalator, turned back to see Hernandez move and returned to shoot him again, 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 to the passenger gate area 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 who crossed his path, authorities revealed. The letter in his duffel bag refers to how Ciancia believed his constitutional rights were being violated by TSA searches and that he’s a “pissedoff patriot,� upset at former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.

Defense on Sterling’s With Rodgers out, Bears earn rare Lambeau victory mind BY FRED MITCHELL Chicago Tribune

Warriors prepared for talented Cavaliers

GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Chicago Bears took advantage of an Aaron Rodgers injury and grabbed a share of the NFC North lead Monday night with a 27-20 victory over the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. Behind an inspired performance by backup quarterback Josh McCown, the Bears won in Green Bay for the first time since 2007. The Packers lost starting quarterback Rodgers to what the team’s website called a left shoulder injury in the first quarter, and backup Seneca Wallace played the rest of the game. The Bears, Packers and Detroit Lions are each 5-3. The Bears host the Lions next Sunday at Soldier Field. Meanwhile, ESPN.com reported that Jay Cutler would return to practice this week and, barring a setback, planned to start Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions. “We’re going to go with what the doctors say,” coach Marc Trestman said when asked if Cutler would return Sunday. “When Jay is ready, he’ll be back in there.” McCown completed 22 of 41 passes for 272 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions.

Brooke Williams hadn’t had a chance to talk to coach Dale Dykeman while celebrating the 3A Stillman Valley Regional championship last Thursday. Yet, the Sterling senior already knew what the next few days of practice would focus on – defense. That’s because she and junior Jordyn Koett, who had similar thoughts, knew what the difference was the first two times that Sterling had played LaSalle-Peru. “We are going to have to play very good defense,” Williams said. “We have played good defense, but we know that LaSalle-Peru will test our back row, and we are just going to have to step up as a team.” The Warriors (26-7) will play LaSalle-Peru (31-3), the NIB12 West champions, at 6 p.m. today in a semifinal of the 3A Princeton Sectional.

Eastland-Pearl City’s Eric Schaney runs over Luther North’s Sylvester Pydych during Saturday’s 54-8 win in Pearl City. The Wildcatz improved to 10-0 with the win and will play Newman in the second round. BY DAN WOESSNER DWOESSNER SAUKVALLEYCOM    EXT

Here are some numbers that help explain the first round of the 2013 high school football playoffs.

4-0

That was the record for Sauk Valley teams in the first round. Eastland-Pearl City, Erie-Prophetstown, Newman and Oregon each won firstround games. EPC will play Newman at 2 p.m. on Saturday at Roscoe Eades Stadium. Erie-Prophetstown hosts Stillman Valley at 1:30 p.m. at Wayne Hein Field. Oregon plays at Aurora Christian at 6 p.m.

12-2

That’s the record for teams from the five conferences in the Sauk Valley coverage area in the first round. Teams from the NIB-12 West, Big Northern West, Three Rivers North and the NUIC played very well. The only losses came in games featuring two NUIC teams. Galena beat East Dubuque, and Lena-Winslow beat Forreston in a pair of 1A games.

9.6

That’s how many seconds were left when Tyler Blume connected with Pierce Dhaese for a 9-yard touchdown during Oregon’s 22-21 win over Wilmington on Saturday. The comeback was complete when Sawyer Reynolds rushed in for the two-point conversion.

8

Oregon was one of eight teams with a 5-4 record to win in the first round. Other teams to do it were Staunton (2A), Belleville Althoff (4A), Rochelle (4A), Providence (6A), De La Salle (6A), Prairie Ridge (6A) and Downers Grove North (7A).

4

That’s how many times that Rochelle has won a first-round playoff game with a 5-4 record. The Hubs beat Chicago Payton 60-18 on Saturday. Other notable first-round victories for the Hubs were upset wins against undefeated teams from Sterling (2005) and Geneseo (2006).

1988

That’s the last year that a football team from either Erie or Prophetstown had won a playoff game before the co-op beat River Valley on Friday. Prophetstown beat Abingdon 40-10 in the 2A playoffs in 1988. They lost to Aledo 18-13 in the second round.

41

That’s how many yards Erie-Prophestown’s Nick Williams needs to reach 2,000 rushing yards for the season after having 165 yards in the Panthers’ win over River Valley. The last Sauk Valley rusher to surpass 2,000 yards in a season was Morrison’s Josh Vos (2,115) in 2009.

1

That’s how many playoff wins that Oswego East has after beating Belleville East 21-14 in the first round in Class 7A. The Wolves are coached by Sterling High School graduate Tyson LeBlanc. Oswego East is 7-3 this season and has gone 11-8 in two seasons under LeBlanc, who was formerly the coach at Chicago Curie. The Wolves went 14-49 in the seven seasons before LeBlanc arrived at the school.

9

That’s how many turnovers Luther North had in Saturday’s 54-8 loss to Eastland-Pearl City. Luther North fumbled the ball nine times and lost possession six times. EPC also had three interceptions, two of them by Cody Kluck.

-16

If you factor in offensive penalty yardage, that’s the final tally in yards for the Fieldcrest Falcons against Newman. Fieldcrest had three first downs. The Falcons managed 18 rushing yards and 18 passing yards. Newman also had three interceptions in the victory.

7

That’s how many times that Eastland-Pearl City has played a current Three Rivers North team in the playoff since 2000. The Wildcatz are 1-6 in those games, with the lone win a 21-7 decision over Bureau Valley in 2010. EPC plays Three Rivers North champ Newman on Saturday.

NASCAR | SPRINT CUP

Even closer than he appears Johnson confident even with Kenseth in rearview mirror BY JENNA FRYER !0!UTO2ACING7RITER

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Just like last season, Jimmie Johnson enters the next-to-last race with a seven-point lead in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. He came up empty in his bid for a sixth title last year, but is more confident about his chances following Sunday’s dominating victory at Texas. With Matt Kenseth in his rearview mirror, that could be a false sense of security. Johnson lost the title a year ago to Brad Keselowski, who didn’t flinch during his first title fight. He went toe-to-toe with the most dominant driver of his generation, and he and Johnson swapped the lead four times in the waning laps at Texas. Johnson won the race, Keselowski finished second and Johnson left with a

Apple of his eye Obama gushes over Stanley Cup champions BY CHRIS KUC Chicago Tribune

Sauk Valley’s Jaimie Hurd goes up for a layup Monday during Monday’s game against Lincoln. The Skyhawks won 73-52.

Hammelman makes return to court RANGE

CONTINUED FROM B1

Hammelman scored 10 points, pulled down 10 rebounds, dished out six assists and snared three steals. She also did not commit a turnover, despite playing point guard for the first time since her freshman year in high school at Sterling Christian. “I was hoping I would have done a little bit better,� Hammelman said. “But, I’m not too hard on myself, because it is my first game in almost 2 years. I definitely felt like I was back. I was just really tired, but my second wind kicked in.� “It was fun to have her back,� Johnson said of Hammelman. “I’ve been looking forward to it for a year. She’s made the transition to the one [point guard]. I know she was worried about that, but she did a heck of a job.� Giddings, Hammelman and company controlled the action throughout. The Skyhawks went up by double digits less than 8 minutes into the action and led by double figures the rest of the way. Sauk jumped in front

10-3 just over 3 minutes into the action, thanks to five quick points from Giddings and three from Hammelman. Soon, the Skyhawks upped the margin to 25-9 with more than 8 minutes left in the first half. Giddings hit her second early 3 in the push, which also included four points apiece from Dixon’s Rebecca Hendley (7 points) and Amboy’s Autumn Smith, who had 10 points and six rebounds. Sauk led 34-21 at the half. The Skyhawks opened the second half with a 13-2 tear to build a 46-23 advantage. Giddings scored the first six points of the blitz. But, just when it looked like Sauk was about to deliver the knockout blow, Lincoln fought back. The Lynx scored the next nine points to make it 46-34 with 12:04 to play. They cut the gap to 11 at 49-38 with 9:40 remaining, but that was as close as it would get. Sauk built back up to a 23-point lead twice in the final minutes. Sheldeen Joseph contributed 10 points, four assists and four steals for the Skyhawks.

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama made no attempt to hide his partisanship when it comes to sports teams. Obama was beaming when he greeted the 2013 Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks on Monday at the White House He welcomed his hometown team with a mixture of admiration, humor and knowledge of the journey that led to the Hawks’ second trip to the nation’s capital in 3 years during a 7-minute ceremony in The East Room. “Since I took office we’ve hosted a lot of championship teams, from Boston, New York, Pittsburgh and Miami, but since I’ve been president only one team has brought a world championship to my hometown of Chicago, and now the Blackhawks have done it twice. Twice!� Obama said with a big smile. “Three years ago, the Hawks won their first Stanley Cup in 49 years. And keep in mind, the Cubs have been waiting for 105, so 49 might have not seemed so bad. But luckily, the second Stanley Cup came just a little bit quicker.� With a gleaming Stanley Cup perched next to him and players and team personnel looking on, Obama made reference to

President Barack Obama looks at the championship ring worn by Blackhawks President and CEO John McDonough during a ceremony on Monday in the East Room of the White House in Washington. The Blackhawks were honored by the president for winning the Stanley Cup. the Hawks’ historic start to the ‘13 season, the birth of Duncan Keith’s son during the first round of the playoffs against the Wild and Patrick Kane’s goal in doubleovertime in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals against the Kings that sent the Hawks to the Stanley Cup Final. He also mentioned Andrew Shaw getting hit in the face with a puck during Game 6 against the Bruins, and the

17-second span later in that contest when Bryan Bickell and Dave Bolland scored goals to give the Hawks the title in Boston. And then the president, who added that he “was getting a little tense� during the postseason, brought down the house when he joked about goaltender Corey Crawford’s rather profane speech during the championship rally in Chicago.

Warriors mixing up defense for Cavs DEFENSE

CONTINUED FROM B1

Sycamore (16-17) will play Dunlap (13-18) in the other semifinal at 7 p.m. The championship match will be Thursday. “You reach this point where there are only 32 teams left in the state, and you know that you are going to play very good teams,� said Dykeman after practice on Monday. “We are not afraid of anyone, but we know to respect them. We’re playing some of the best volleyball that we have all season, and

that gives us a lot of confidence.� Sterling lost at LaSallePeru on Sept. 17 by scores of 18-25, 25-21, 25-18. They followed that with a loss at Musgrove Fieldhouse on Sept. 10, 25-17, 16-25, 25-17. The key to the Cavaliers’ offense has been senior Katie Olson, who played one season at Rock Falls. Her father, Scott, was the Rockets’ basketball coach for two seasons. Around Olson, the Cavaliers have strong hitters in sophomore Taylor Gibson and senior middle hitter Rachel Hunt. “Everything runs

through their setter,� Dykeman said. “She does an excellent job with misdirection. If you try to guess, she’ll catch you every time. That cost us a few times in the first couple matches.� That’s the reason Dykeman went to the tapes and spent time at practice installing a new defense. His hope is to disrupt Olson and put LaSallePeru on its heels. “We’ve watched tape and plan on running a defense that they haven’t seen this season,� Dykeman said. “We hope it forces them to make a few in-game adjustments.�

On the flip side, Sterling is coming off a regional where it rallied to beat Dixon in the semifinal and dominated Belvidere in the championship. Kiarra Harris had 19 kills in the win over Dixon, and the Warriors spread the ball around nicely in the championship match. “We’ve had players really grow into leadership roles the last couple weeks,� Dykeman said. “We started the season strong and then had a lull in the middle of the year. The leaders on this team pulled out of that, and we’re really excited about where we can go.�

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (right) talks to Bears quarterback Jay Cutler after the teams’ game Monday night in Green Bay, Wis. Cutler missed the game because of a groin injury, and Rodgers was knocked out of the game with a shoulder injury. The Bears won 27-20.

Bears ice victory with long drive CHECK

CONTINUED FROM B1

“This is neat, this is really neat,� McCown said of the victory. “It means so much to our team, because it’s a divisional opponent, it’s for the division lead, it’s all those things. So it’s special, I’m very thankful.� Matt Forte rushed for 125 yards on 24 carries and a touchdown and had five receptions for 54 yards. A 27-yard field goal by Robbie Gould capped the scoring, putting the Bears ahead 27-20 with 50 seconds to play. It capped an 18-play, 80-yard drive that took 8:58 off the fourth-quarter clock and included a fourth-andone conversion from their own 32 with 7:50 left. “It was just a well-executed drive,� McCown said. “I don’t know how many passes I threw. All

I know is the line blocked their tails off.� A six-yard touchdown pass from McCown to Alshon Jeffery [five catches for 60 yards] had put the Bears back on top 24-20 with 2:41 left in the third quarter. The Packers fooled the Bears with an onside kick, recovered and took a 20-17 third-quarter lead. The Packers drove deep into scoring range as a possible interception went through the hands of Bears linebacker James Anderson and into the arms of receiver James Jones. The Bears’ defense stiffened and Mason Crosby kicked a 23-yard field goal for the lead with 8:45 left in the third quarter. The Packers had tied the game 17-17 on a 1-yard run by Eddie Lacy. A 56-yard run by Lacy set up the score. Gould’s 24-yard field goal as time expired gave the Bears a 17-10 half-

time lead. A one-yard run by Matt Forte gave the Bears a 14-10 lead with 9:26 to play before halftime. The 60-yard drive included a 33-yard swing pass from McCown to Forte and a 27-yard pass to tight end Martellus Bennett to the Packers’ 1. Brandon Marshall (seven catches for 107 yards) caught a 23-yard touchdown from McCown, who was off balance with a defender draped over him, for a 7-3 lead with 9:55 left in the first quarter. The Packers wasted little time attacking the Bears’ vulnerable defense on their opening drive. Aided by a face mask penalty on the Bears’ Stephen Paea, Green Bay marched to the Bears’ 12 before Mason Crosby booted a 30-yard field goal to make it 3-0 with 12:24 left in the first quarter. The drive covered 68 yards in eight plays.

Astrograph Express the way you feel. Tuesday, November 5, 2013 Knowledge is a beautiful thing. Learn all you can about the people around you in the year ahead. Do your best to use your skills in a helpful and satisfying manner. Your ability to relate to others will boost your popularity.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -You’ll be questioned if you draw attention to your activities. Work quietly on your own, where you can accomplish the most. A move will help a work-related situation.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Express the way you feel and offer suggestions to people who need help. The way you deal with others will show what kind of person you are and will result in new opportunities.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Revisit your current strategy, and you’ll find a flaw that can offset a financial loss. Feel confident that you have taken care of every detail and enjoy a social evening.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Solidify your financial picture by collecting or paying off a debt. Taking care of money matters will ease your stress. A clean slate will facilitate the changes conducive to personal happiness.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Don’t question what others do; just make sure that you take care of your responsibilities. Your need to butt in or make changes must be monitored carefully to avoid making an irreversible error.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Restlessness must be dealt with wisely. Instead of making an impulsive move, concentrate on developing a better way to utilize what you have to offer. Leave time for a passionate encounter.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Ask, and you shall receive. Forming a partnership or collaborating with someone will help you accomplish twice as much. Learn while you go, and you will make headway. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Listen carefully and ask questions. Someone is likely to hide information that is pertinent to a decision you must make. Don’t waste time getting angry, just do what’s best for you.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -You’ve got plenty to contribute, so don’t hold back; voice your opinion and reach out with suggestions, questions and whatever else you can offer. It’s a good day to make some serious gains. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Pick and choose your company carefully. Someone will want to join you, and someone will complain. Don’t labor over what to do.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Discuss your plans and consider your options. Don’t let personal matters cloud your vision or stand between you and success.
