Cortland Township mulls pursuing further legal action By JEFF ENGELHARDT

jengelhardt@shawmedia.com

CORTLAND – Three votes will be taken at a special meeting of Cortland Township electors to decide whether residents should pursue legal action against Waste Management to stop the landfill expansion. Electors – any registered voters living in Cortland Township – will meet at 7 p.m. Jan. 31 in the Cortland Township office on 14 S. Prairie St. to decide whether the township should sue Waste Management and if so, how to pay for it. Township residents will be asked to consider a special levy to cover legal costs and retain the services of law firm Jeep & Blazer LLC. Meeting organizer Frankie Benson said a one-time special property tax levy would be needed to cover about $60,000 in legal costs. Only 15 electors need to attend for the meeting to become official, but Benson said she hoped for a large turnout because a financial decision such as a special tax levy should not be left to a select few. “How we pay for it is going to be up to the people that are there,” she said. “It is one funding source we would consider.” Another funding option that could be implemented in addition to the levy is a special account for private donations. Benson said electors would also vote on setting up

DeKALB – William Strauss believes 2013 will look a lot like 2012 in terms of the country’s economic recovery. Strauss, a senior economist and economic adviser for the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, told a room full of DeKalb County notables that they should expect to see modest economic growth in the U.S. economy in the years ahead. “The economy has been growing, but it’s not impressive,” Strauss said. “Businesses are not feeling the pressure to expand.” Unlike with earlier recessions, which were followed by a healthy bounce back of economic activity,

Strauss’ comments came during the 2013 Economic Outlook Luncheon, hosted by the DeKalb County Economic Development Corp. Listening to his speech in the

Algerian Army’s rescue mission turns deadly; toll unclear By AOMAR OUALI and PAUL SCHEMM The Associated Press

ALGIERS, Algeria – Algerian helicopters and special forces stormed a gas plant in the stony plains of the Sahara on Thursday to wipe out Islamist militants and free hostages from at least 10 countries. Bloody chaos ensued, leaving the fate of the fighters and many of the captives uncertain.

Dueling claims from the military and the militants muddied the world’s understanding of an event that angered Western leaders, raised world oil prices and complicated the international military operation in neighboring Mali. At least six people, and perhaps many more, were killed – Britons, Filipinos and Algerians. Terrorized hostages from Ireland and Norway trickled out of the Ain Amenas plant,

families urging them never to return. Dozens more remained unaccounted for: Americans, Britons, French, Norwegians, R o m an i a ns , M a la y s i an s , Japanese, Algerians and the fighters themselves. The U.S. government sent an unmanned surveillance drone to the BP-operated site, near the border with Libya and 800 miles from the Algerian capital, but it could do little more than watch Thurs-

day’s intervention. Algeria’s army-dominated government, hardened by decades of fighting Islamist militants, shrugged aside foreign offers of help and drove ahead alone. With the hostage drama entering its second day Thursday, Algerian security forces moved in, first with helicopter fire and then special forces, according to diplomats, a website close to the militants, and an Algerian security official.

The government said it was forced to intervene because the militants were being stubborn and wanted to flee with the hostages. The militants – led by a Mali-based al-Qaida offshoot known as the Masked Brigade – suffered losses in Thursday’s military assault, but succeeded in garnering a global audience. Even violence-scarred Algerians were stunned by the brazen hostage-taking

Cheerleading college in the new year It’s on. For the next 15 weeks, I’ll do my best to stretch the brains (in a good way) of about 80 Northern Illinois University students in the five classes I’m teaching. But in stretching, one must heed the dangers of spraining, of exhaustion, of needless repetition. Teachers strive to make learning challenging but not overwhelming. Subject matter is the main thing I’m paid for, but I care about my students. I’m on a paternal section of the road of life, and my colorful history in early adulthood compels me to offer bits of life advice here and there. Advice like: Drinking games might seem fun – they were in my day, too – but they’re stupid and extremely dangerous. And: Take notes. Taking notes makes you look interested. Employers like that. Anyway, between now and early May, I will spend many hours in class with students, lecturing, discussing, asking them questions and guiding their emerging techniques as journalists and public relations professionals. Evenings, I will edit, grade and give feedback on more than 300 written assignments and about 150 design assignments. I’ll also grade about 60 quizzes, tests and exercises. All the while, I’ll try to avoid bitterness that most of these young adults will start their careers making more money than I do, and I’ll try

THE FINE LINE Jason Akst humbly to live up to Albert Einstein, who once said, “It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.” I mention all this because on a macro level, post-secondary education is not feeling the love. Major magazines, newspapers and TV programs are openly questioning whether college is “worth it.” State legislatures and governors continue to cut support to colleges and universities (while demanding terabytes of data justifying our existence and bleating about increasing tuition). We’re far from fault-free, too. Colleges spend lots of money on questionable activities and people. But I’m setting negativity aside for now because of some good news (for a change). The National Association of Colleges and Employers – a widely watched nonprofit association consisting of more than 3,000 colleges, universities and employers that link college career services professionals and employers of new college graduates – has recently published its 2013 job outlook. NACE forecasts that employers anticipate hiring 13 percent more new college graduates from the Class of 2013

than they did in 2012. One area of very strong growth is in retail, the annual survey said, where employers plan to hire 47 percent more college graduates this year than last. More good news: NIU is a good deal. In December, PayScale, an organization that analyzes salary and career data, reported that the cost of a bachelor’s degree at NIU – compared with the costs of other state colleges and similar institutions – is a better investment “than almost all of the state’s 12 public, four-year universities, ranking behind only University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and University of Illinois at Chicago,” according to the Daily Chronicle story that reported the findings. More good news (in a sense). The Pew Internet & American Life Project, a project of the Pew Research Center, predicts that in our evolving online culture and workplace, “Internet literacy,” a concept that “generally refers to the ability to search effectively for information online and to be able to discern the quality and veracity of the information one finds and then communicate these findings well,” will be among the most desired skills in the near-term future.

Original ‘Dear Abby’ advice columnist dies By STEVE KARNOWSKI The Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS – Pauline Friedman Phillips, who as Dear Abby dispensed snappy, sometimes saucy advice on love, marriage and meddling mothersin-law to millions of newspaper readers around the world and opened the way for the likes of Dr. Ruth, Dr. Phil and Oprah, has died. She was 94. Phillips died Wednesday in Minneapolis after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease, said Gene Willis, a publicist for the Universal Uclick syndicate. “My mother leaves very big high heels to fill with a legacy of compassion, commitment and positive social change,” her daughter, Jeanne Phillips, who now writes the column, said in a statement. Private funeral services were held Thursday, Willis said. The long-running “Dear Abby” column first appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle in 1956. Mother and daughter started sharing the byline in 2000, and Jeanne Phillips took over in 2002, when the family announced Pauline Phillips had Alzheimer’s disease. Pauline Phillips wrote under the name Abigail Van Buren. Her column competed for decades with the advice of Ann Landers, written by her twin sis-

Destiny’s Child alum reveals battles with depression By MARK KENNEDY The Associated Press

NEW YORK – With a new single about to drop, a solo album in the works and a starring role in a national tour of a Broadway musical, you’d be hard-pressed to tell that Michelle Williams once had difficulty just getting out of bed. The singer-actress – one third of Destiny’s Child alongside Beyonce and Kelly Rowland – said that in the past few months she has emerged from years of suffering from moderate depression. Her dark cloud lifted thanks to exercise, therapy and positive thinking. “I’ve dealt with depression,” the 32-year-old said during a break in rehearsals for a new touring production of “Fela!” that kicks off later this month. “I had to choose to get out of bed and do whatever I needed to do to be happy.”

Williams said she suffered her first bout of depression at 15 or 16 and has managed to avoid medication. She is speaking out for the first time about her battle to encourage others to seek help. “We’re taught, ‘Just go to church and pray about it. The Lord is going to heal you.’ Well, in the meantime, I believe God-gifted people, physicians, doctors, therapists – that’s your healing. Take advantage of it,” she said. “Go see a professional so that they can assess you. It’s OK if you’re going through something. Depression is not OK, but it is OK to go get help.” Williams on this day is bursting with energy, smiling and laughing, her body leaner than normal as she dives into the frenetic biography of Nigerian musician and activist Fela Anikulapo Kuti, who died in 1997. In the rehearsal room, Williams bounces in her chair with the oth-

er cast members as the show’s hybrid of jazz and pop songs swells. Though she’s a Grammy Award winner, she easily hugs her fellow performers and wears sweat pants and a tank top. Where’s the diva? “Who has time for that?” she said. “That’s just dumb. I come from Rockford, Ill. – there’s no divas there.” Williams will be playing the role of Sandra Isadore, who was Fela’s AfricanAmerican lover. Maija Garcia, the tour director and choreographer, said the presence of a Destiny’s Child member in the cast “empowers the musical.” The show, which made it to Broadway in 2009, is set for a 16-city tour starting at the Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 29. By the time summer rolls around, it will have visited Miami, Atlanta, Cleveland, Dallas, Los Angeles, Seattle and Nashville, Tenn.

Sycamore schools go healthy $14K grant to pay for curriculum, equipment such as balls, jumpropes By JEFF ENGELHARDT

jengelhardt@shawmedia.com

SYCAMORE – A $14,000 grant will help boost health initiatives in Sycamore School District 427’s primary after-school program. Leaders from Live Healthy DeKalb County, a group of health, city and school officials focused on creating healthy lifestyles through environmental and policy changes, secured a $14,000 grant from the American Cancer Society to implement the CATCH program at all five of Sycamore’s elementary schools. CATCH, which stands for Coordinated Approach To Child Health, will be featured in the after-school OSCAR program after pilot programs were successful at Southeast

and West elementary schools. Lisa Cumings, community liaison with Kishwaukee Community Hospital and coordinator of the CATCH program, said the grant would provide the full curriculum and equipment such as jumpropes, balls, hula hoops and scooters. Certified CATCH trainers also will train OSCAR staff. “We always had the vision of bringing it to all the afterschool programs in Sycamore,” Cumings said. “It’s exciting to see it finally coming to fruition and spreading.” The program is aimed at fighting childhood obesity and instilling proper nutrition and exercise habits in young students. Thomas Franks, director of OSCAR, said students already

have started making positive changes in the limited exposure they have had to CATCH in some physical education courses. He said parents have told him their students are bringing healthy habits home and talking about slow, go and whoa foods, which identify how much of each type of food a person should have. “It’s going to be fantastic that all of our kids will get it,” Franks said. “We know it’s researched based. We know when it’s done correctly, it works.” Cumings and Franks said that they were confident the program would be sustained after grant funding is exhausted in December. Because the schools will have the curriculum and

equipment, coordinators will only need to focus on training new staff members when turnover occurs. The grant also will help launch a summer CATCH program at the Kishwaukee Family YMCA, Cumings said. She said the program would feature lessons once a week and middle school children would play a pivotal role, serving as role models and teachers for elementary students. Now that the program is implemented during school days in DeKalb and in afterschool programs at Sycamore, Cumings said she hopes to expand it toward Sandwich and Genoa. “This is a countywide initiative,” she said. “We want to reach as many people as we can.”

Explore Russell Woods at Winterfest By JEFF ENGELHARDT

jengelhardt@shawmedia.com GENOA – Peggy Doty is encouraging DeKalb County residents to come out of winter hibernation early and enjoy the outdoors. For the 13th consecutive year, Doty has organized a free Winterfest to show residents the Russell Woods Forest Preserve has just as much to offer in winter as it does in summer. The event, hosted by the University of Illinois Extension, will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. “It’s a great way for families to get out during the winter,” she said. “And it’s free, which in this economy is always a positive.” The event will start at 9 a.m. in the Natural Resource Center in Russell Woods with

an indoor birdwatching session. Doty said she would teach basic bird identification techniques as residents view the activity around the bird feeders. Arts and crafts will begin at 10 a.m. and last all day for children, who also will be treated to story time at 2 p.m. Candle dipping will be offered from 10 a.m. to noon for anyone interested in making their own candle. Doty said those events have been staples of Winterfest for

years and always are popular. “We tend to keep a very similar pattern to the day,” she said. “As families get older they move on to other events, so families with young kids come in and are excited about activities they haven’t tried.” There will be some activities that have not been offered in years, Doty said. A native skills presenter will teach a beginners tracking class to show people the basics of animal tracking. There also will be horsedrawn wagon rides along the river from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and demonstrations on how pioneers made rope. Doty said hikes through the forest would leave at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. All events and activities are free. The Prairie Gems 4-H Club will be on hand to pro-

vide snacks and lunch items for a small donation. Donations go toward the club and supporting cost of the materials. Doty said Winterfest draws about 75 people every year and is one of the many events the University of Illinois Extension provides at forest preserves throughout the year. She said more than 4,000 children are served through programming each year. The next winter activity will be in early March with the Maple Syrup Fest. “Everything is good to go whether there is snow or not,” Doty said of Winterfest. “But it looks like it should be in the 40s, so it’s a perfect day to come outside.” The Natural Resource Center in Russell Woods is one mile west of Genoa on Route 72.

Authorities allege they were kicked by battery suspect By JILLIAN DUCHNOWSKI

jduchnowski@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – A 61-yearold Cortland woman kicked and hit police officers who were trying to serve her an order of protection connected with a domestic battery case, police said. Shirley Fontana, of the 300 block of South Shirley Somonauk Fontana Road, was charged with three counts of aggravated battery to a peace officer and a single count of resisting arrest Wednesday, according to a news release from the

DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office. She remained in DeKalb County Jail on Thursday, unable to post 10 percent of her $50,000 bail. The incident involving two sheriff’s deputies and a Cortland police officer came four days after she allegedly hit her roommate in the head, causing the roommate to stumble and cut a hand in a loose nail on the wall, police said. The cut required eight stitches, court records show. According to the roommate’s petition for an order of protection, Fontana threatened to kill the roommate Saturday and burn down the house if she didn’t take her to Walmart.

8LOCAL BRIEFS Rail problem closes part of Routes 38, 23

DeKALB – A separated Union Pacific rail closed part of the intersection of Routes 23 and 38 in downtown DeKalb on Thursday. City officials were notified of the separated track rail about 11:50 a.m. Thursday, said Mark Espy, DeKalb’s assistant director of public works. Officials expected Route 38 (Lincoln Highway) would be closed at the intersection for about seven hours while Union Pacific crews worked, Espy said. “We’re having to set up a detour for Route 38 both east and west,” Espy said. “Route 23 is going to be open but there’s no eastbound traffic off of 23.”

Midwest bankers see rural growth The ASSOCiATEd PrESS

OMAHA, Neb. – Growth in farmland prices, cash rents and farm equipment sales remain strong despite the continuing threat of drought in some Midwestern and northern Plains states, according to a new survey of rural bankers released Thursday. The report on the Rural Mainstreet Index said the index hit 55.6 in January, down from 60.6 in December. It is the index’s fourth straight month above growth neutral. Creighton University economist Ernie Goss, who oversees the report, said the region’s rural economy still was expanding at a moderate pace. “Rural, agriculturally dependent communities in the region appear to have shed the negative impacts of the 2012 drought,” Goss said. The index ranges from 0 to 100, with 50 representing growth neutral. It’s based on a survey of rural bankers in Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming. Jeff Bonnett, president of Havana National Bank in Havana, Ill., said in his survey response that the drought had little impact there “since most of our crops are irrigated and farmland that is not irrigated is covered by disaster crop insurance programs.” In Grygla, Minn., American State Bank President Bryan Grove said that although 2012 “was much drier than normal in our region of northwest Minnesota, crops were excellent, resulting in great financial progress for agriculture producers.” But Grove also said subsoil moisture has been depleted, so 2013 crops “will require timely rains.”

2 men plead guilty in DeKalb stabbing By JiLLiAn dUCHnOWSki

jduchnowski@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – Two of the three people police say were involved in a gang-related stabbing in DeKalb in March have accepted plea agreements. Charges of attempted murder, aggravated battery and mob action remain pending against Francisco Velasquez,

22, of the 300 block of Oak Street in Aurora. If convicted of the most serious charge, he could be sentenced to between six Francisco and 30 years in Velasquez prison. Velasquez and two other men were at a party March 23

in the 1500 block of Stonefield Drive, DeKalb, when a fight broke out, police said. They stabbed a 21-year-old man in the back and face, according to court documents. Police said two of the three charged had knives. The victim was treated at Kishwaukee Community Hospital in DeKalb and released, police said. Velasquez is next due in

court Feb. 21, court records show. Last week, Valentine Barragan, 20, of the 2600 block of Pleasant Street, DeKalb, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor battery and was sentenced to 2 years of probation.

Born: Sept. 19, 2008; in Chicago died: Jan. 15, 2013; in Chicago GENOA – Brody Lane Fredrikson, 4, of Genoa, Ill., died Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2013, at Lurie Children’s Hospital, Chicago. Brody was a typical little boy that played with his toys, laughed, cried, chewed on his socks and was full of life. Although he was not supposed to survive his birth, he beat the odds of survival of 50 percent after birth. Brody had his own plan – he set out to touch the lives and bring joy to everyone he met with a smile, a laugh and often sticking

his tongue out at others. Brody loved watching “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” and playing with his cousin, the best of friends. He would army crawl all over, and he loved to be thrown into the air by anyone who would pick him up. On Friday nights, Brody enjoyed cheering on his mom, papa and his aunts racing stock cars at Sycamore Speedway – always hoping car 34C would get the checkered flag. Brody attended Davenport Elementary School, Early Childhood education program in Genoa. While at school, he loved to play on his swing. He was born to Starr Fredrikson Sept. 19, 2008, in Chicago. Brody is survived by his mother, Starr Fredrikson of Genoa; her fiancé, Troy Lawrence of Genoa; his sister, Dallas Lawrence; his grandparents, Jerry and Christine (Fredrikson) Roach of Kingston;

aunts, Stacy (Mike) Doris and Mickee Runge; uncle and godfather, Steven Goll; and cousin, Lilly Allen. Starr and her family wish to express their thanks to the Runge family, the staff and nurses at Gaffey Home Health in Sterling, and a special thanks to Megan Lockwood, a special nurse who cared for Brody for 2 years. The visitation will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 19, at Olson Funeral and Cremation Services, Ltd. Quiram Chapel, 1245 Somonauk St., Sycamore.

For family, police payout ‘bittersweet’ By DON BABWIN

The Associated Press

CHICAGO – The parents of a California woman who was raped and injured after Chicago police released her from custody in a troubled neighborhood despite her obvious mental problems said Thursday that a $22.5 million settlement with the city is a “bittersweet victory” that will help pay for her extensive continuing therapy. The payout is the largest settlement for police misconduct in the city’s history. It was approved Thursday by the City Council at the same time as the settlement of another police abuse case, this one $10.25 million to a man who spent 26 years in prison for a murder he didn’t commit. After the council’s action, Christina Eilman’s mother and stepfather, Kathleen and Richard Paine, released their first public statement in years about the case, describing

On Thursday, the Chicago City Council voted to approve paying $32 million to settle police lawsuits. The council agreed to pay $10.25 million to Logan. how the events had devastated their daughter’s life. “No amount of money will bring back the daughter we knew, the lovely young woman who was full of life and accepting of all people,” the Paines said.

“Her life was dramatically changed after she came to Chicago and found herself in the grasp of several insensitive and uncaring police officers and detention aides who humiliated her, directed cruel and insensitive comments to-

8STATE BRIEFS Ex comptroller Netsch reveals she has ALS

CHICAGO – Former Illinois Comptroller Dawn Clark Netsch – who spent 18 years serving in the state senate and was the first woman to run on a major ticket for governor in Illinois – has been diagnosed with a fatal nerve Dawn Clark disorder. Netsch ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is a degenerative disorder that weakens the nerves and makes it difficult to walk, swallow and speak, eventually leading to paralysis and death. The 86-year-old Democrat said she’s talking about her diagnosis partly to raise awareness about the disease. “Might get more people thinking about what is ALS,” she said.

ward her, ignored her desperate need for help and placed her in harm’s way.” Eilman’s federal lawsuit against the city was scheduled to go to trial next week. The family initially was seeking $100 million, but agreed to the lesser amount during extensive negotiations with the city. Chicago Alderman Ed Burke said the city could have lost $80 million or more if the case had gone to trial. Eilman was arrested at Midway International Airport in May 2006 because she was acting strangely and violently. Her parents phoned police from California asking them not to release the 21-year-old college student because she was bipolar. Still, Eilman was released to fend for herself in a highcrime area of the city. She ended up in a public housing building, where a man raped her at knifepoint before she fell or was thrown from a seventh-story window.

Officials: Levee repairs needed across America By CAIN BURDEAU and JOHN FLESHER The Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS – Inspectors taking the first-ever inventory of flood control systems overseen by the federal government have found hundreds of structures at risk of failing and endangering people and property in 37 states. Levees deemed in unacceptableconditionspanthebreadth of America. They are in every region, in cities and towns big and small: Washington, D.C., and Sacramento Calif., Cleveland and Dallas, Augusta, Ga., and Brookport, Ill. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has yet to issue ratings for a little more than 40 percent of the 2,487 structures,

which protect about 10 million people. Of those it has rated, however, 326 levees covering more than 2,000 miles were found in urgent need of repair. The problems are myriad: earthen walls weakened by trees, shrubs and burrowing animal holes; houses built dangerously close to or even on top of levees; decayed pipes and pumping stations. The Associated Press requested, under the Freedom of Information Act, details on why certain levees were judged unacceptable and how many people would be affected in a flood. The Corps declined on grounds that such information could heighten risks of terrorism and sabotage. The AP found specifics about the condition of some

levees from federal and state records and in interviews with more than a dozen officials in cities and towns. The number of people who might be affected by a breach could not be determined because there are many different factors in a flood, such as terrain and obstacles. The severity of the risk from any particular levee depends not only on its condition but also the population, infrastructure and property it protects. The Corps is currently conducting risk assessments of levees under its jurisdiction. Local governments are responsible for upgrading unacceptable levees. Some local officials said that the Corps is exaggerating the dangers,

that some deficiencies were approved or not objected to by the federal government and that any repairs could cost them hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars. “It’s just not right to tell a little town like this to spend millions of dollars that we can’t raise,” said Judy Askew, mayor of Brookport, a hardscrabble town of about 1,000 on the banks of the Ohio River. Compared with other types of infrastructure, the nation’s levees, within and outside federal jurisdiction, don’t fare well. They earned a D-minus for overall condition from the American Society of Civil Engineers in its latest report card in 2009, ranking behind dams, bridges, rails and eight other categories.

Ill. foreclosures climb 32.6 percent in 2012

CHICAGO – Illinois home foreclosure activity rose 32.6 percent in 2012 compared to the previous year. But it was almost 10 percent lower than in 2010. A report released Thursday by Irvine, Calif.-based RealtyTrac shows Illinois with 136,603 foreclosure filings last year. That represents a rate of one in every 39 housing units, or 2.58 percent of all homes. It’s the fifth-highest rate in the nation. Filings include default notices, auction-sale notices and bank repossessions.

Poll: Most see damage if U.S. debt limit not raised By ALAN FRAM and JENNIFER AGIESTA The Associated Press

WASHINGTON – Most Americans think jarring economic problems will erupt if lawmakers fail to increase the government’s borrowing limit. Yet they’re torn over how or even whether to raise it, leaning toward Republican demands that any boost be accompanied by spending cuts. According to an Associated Press-GfK poll, 53 percent say that if the debt limit is not extended and the U.S. defaults, the country will face a major economic crisis. An additional 27 percent say such a crisis would be somewhat likely, while just 17 percent largely

dismiss the prospects of such damage. Separately, Republican officials said Wednesday that GOP lawmakers may seek a short-term extension of the debt limit, thus avoiding a default as early as next month by the U.S. Treasury while they try to negotiate spending cuts with President Barack Obama over the next few months. “The worst thing for the economy is for this Congress and this administration to do nothing to get our debt and deficits under control,” said Rep. Paul Ryan, the party’s 2012 vice presidential candidate who is chairman of the House Budget Committee. The poll’s findings echo many economists’ warnings

Boeing forges ahead with 787 production By JOSHUA FREED

The Associated Press

Boeing plans to keep building its flagship jetliner while engineers try to solve battery problems that have grounded most of the 787 fleet. It’s not clear how long the investigation – or the fix – will take. But it won’t be cheap for Boeing or for the airlines that had sought the prestige of flying the world’s most sophisticated passenger plane – a marvel of aviation technology that right now can’t even leave the tarmac, let alone cross continents and oceans. Boeing’s newest jet was grounded worldwide Thursday after one suffered a battery fire and another had to make an emergency landing because pilots smelled something burning. Airlines and regulators canceled all Dreamliner flights. The groundings were a sign of how seriously regulators take any threat of an inflight fire. National Transportation Safety Board photos of the battery container from a Jan. 7 fire on a Japan Airlines plane showed a blue box with black smudges and blackened

wiring and batteries inside. LOT Polish Airlines suffered the highest-profile embarrassment of any of Boeing’s customers late Wednesday, just as it was showing off new service between Warsaw and Chicago. The plane’s captain learned of the FAA grounding order while making the inaugural flight from Warsaw to Chicago. The airline canceled the return trip – and a ceremony at O’Hare Airport. Passengers who were eager to ride the airline’s first flight back to Warsaw had to look for a hotel room instead. The airline said Thursday that it may seek compensation from Boeing for the grounding of its two 787s. Boeing currently builds five 787s per month. It hasn’t delivered any since Jan. 3, before the plane started experiencing a spate of problems that also included fuel and oil leaks, a cracked cockpit window and a computer glitch that erroneously indicated a brake problem. Boeing spokeswoman Lori Gunter said no deliveries had been scheduled during that time. She declined to discuss planned deliveries.

8NATION BRIEF Toyota settles bellwether wrongful death lawsuit

LOS ANGELES – Toyota Motor Corp. said it has settled what was to be the first of hundreds of wrongful death lawsuits involving problems of sudden, unintended acceleration by its vehicles. A Toyota spokeswoman said Thursday that the company reached the agreement in the case brought by the family of Paul Van Alfen and Charlene Jones Lloyd. They were killed when their Toyota Camry

slammed into a wall in Utah in 2010. The spokeswoman would not disclose the financial terms. Last month, Toyota agreed to a settlement worth more than $1 billion to resolve hundreds of lawsuits claiming economic losses suffered by Toyota owners, but hundreds more lawsuits over wrongful death remained. The Van Alfen case was to be the first of those tried, and to serve as a bellwether for the rest.

that failure to raise the debt ceiling and the resulting, unprecedented federal default would risk wounding the world economy because many interest rates are pegged to the trustworthiness of the U.S. to pay its debts. Obama and many Republicans agree with that, though some GOP lawmakers eager to force Obama to accept spending cuts have downplayed a default’s impact. When asked which political path to follow, 39 percent of poll respondents support the insistence by House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., that deep spending cuts be attached to any measure increasing the debt ceiling. That’s more

than the 30 percent who back Obama’s demand that borrowing authority be raised quickly and not entwined with a bitter fight over trimming the budget. An additional 21 percent oppose boosting the debt ceiling at all. The survey was conducted as the two parties gird for a debt-limit battle that is likely to dominate the next two months in the capital. The fight is sure to underscore partisan differences over how to curb federal deficits that have surpassed $1 trillion for four straight years. Obama insists that besides spending cuts there should be more tax increases on the wealthy, which the GOP opposes.

After 4 years, Obama shifts strategy, outlook By NANCY BENAC

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON – Four years ago he was the fifthyoungest president to take the oath of office. Now Barack Obama is 51, his hair more gray, his face more lined. He’s the parent of a teenager and a tween. (Insert your own joke about teens and gray hair here.) His blood pressure has ticked up a bit, although it’s still excellent. He’s quit smoking. He’s a pet owner. And the changes in the president aren’t just physical. As he enters his second term, he is sounding more confident, vowing a harder line on negotiations, relying more on trusted allies, promising less and expressing more cynicism about the grip of partisanship on Washington. And perhaps most important, he seems more convinced of a need to keep the

public with him, coming full circle to his people-driven 2008 campaign. “You can’t change Washington from the inside,” he said during his re-election campaign. “You can only change it from the outside.” On the best days of his presidency, Obama has been witness to the power and possibilities of the office he holds. On the worst, he’s seen its limitations. He has celebrated passage of his mammoth health-care overhaul. And mourned the lost children of Newtown. He has savored the nail-biter news that Osama bin Laden at last had been brought down. And stood vigil over the remains of fallen soldiers returned to Dover, Del. Between the highs and lows came the daily grind of a daunting job whose demands never end. There is always one more negotiation. One more legislative tussle. One

that special fund. Before any votes on funding options are taken, township residents must vote on whether they want to seek an injunction against Waste Management. The potential lawsuit would ask a judge to consider a state statute that says electors may prevent the deposit of garbage within township limits. Landfill expansion opponents claim the DeKalb County Board ignored the townships formal refusal of the expansion in May 2010. The county already is facing a lawsuit from Stop the Mega-Dump that claims there were public hearing and procedural violations leading up to the approval. The county has prevailed at the appellate court level; the case has been appealed to the Illinois Supreme Court, which may decide to hear it.

The firm has represented numerous municipalities in environmental and land use issues, including recent opposition to a Yorkville landfill. Representatives from the firm declined to comment until after the Jan. 31 vote. Benson said she would distribute informational fliers around Cortland for residents leading up to the meeting. If there is severe weather Jan. 31, the meeting will be Feb. 1 at the same time and location. “We’re trying to get as many people to show up as we can,” she said. “It is an important decision.”

more economic soft spot. One more natural disaster. By all accounts, Obama’s style and his character remain largely unchanged. But every chapter of his presidency – the gasp-inducing early economic crisis, the battle over health care, the midterm congressional shellacking, the mass shootings in the past year, the endless negotiations over debt and deficit, the re-election brawl – has helped mold him and shape his perspective. “Four years in, he has a very good sense of the job,” said senior adviser Valerie Jarrett. “He has a great sense of what is possible if you do have the American people behind you and willing to push with you to make change.” To be sure, there’s a large dose of self-exoneration in the lessons Obama has taken from the job, as if he had little hand in Washington’s obsti-

nacy and all the scheming political operatives are on the other side. Republicans largely blame wrong-headed presidential policies and unyielding tactics. And some in the president’s party wonder whether his new, tougher rhetoric truly will result in firmer stands. “He hasn’t changed nearly as much as either Democrats or Republicans wish,” said Calvin Jillson, a political scientist at Southern Methodist University. The public, for its part, has revised its own assessment of Obama over the past four years. Polls show the president is still regarded as a good communicator, friendly, well-informed, caring, trustworthy. But there’s been a significant slide in the share who see him as a strong leader and as someone who can get things done.

They will be looking at Currency, Pocket & Wrist Watches, Jewelry, Diamonds, Military memorabilia and anything else that’s old! You can ask questions about your items and most importantly ask “What’s it worth?”

GOLD

In addition to sharing valuable information these collectors will also be buying items for other collectors around the world. Normally you can expect to receive between 80% and 85% of the true value if you choose to sell. Example if gold is $1600.00 per ounce you should expect to receive about $1300.00.

GOLD JEWELRY

If you want to cash in on your old gold jewelry there are a few things you must know. Let me give you the basics. 10K is 47.1% gold, 14K is 58.5% gold, 18k is 75% gold. Pure gold is 24K. Not many things other than bullion are made of 24K or pure gold because it is just to soft. In most cases 80% to 85% of spot price is all you can hope to get when you sell. When we buy gold we have to refine it meaning separate the pure gold from other metals then sell it directly to the end user like the jewelry trade.

8LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Taking assault weapons not denial of rights

To the Editor: I have not written in response to anything for some time, but feel strongly about the noise being made over the efforts to protect us from assault-style weapons. We can’t continue to allow our children to be murdered. Taking guns away is not the point, and no one’s rights are being denied. If any of you remember back in George W. Bush’s first term, there were few cries raised about our Constitutional rights being stomped on after

9/11. There are many people who were unfairly and unjustly arrested and detained on suspicion of possible terrorist thoughts and acts. For all we know some are still being held without warrant. Why did no one seem to see that rabid roundup as endangering our Constitutional rights? What about having our phones tapped, and illegal search and seizure in the name of Homeland Security? It is really becoming painful to hear so many espousing Constitutional “knowledge” when they really haven’t read it, and don’t understand it. Most are

simply parroting what someone else has told them it says. Speaker of the House John Boehner stood with a copy of the Constitution and waved it while quoting the preamble in 2009 ... only it wasn’t from the Constitution, it was from the Declaration of Independence. Oh, never mind, you know what he meant. It was one of those documents by our founders. Who cares which one? Well, we had better start caring. This country is going to tear itself apart with racism and obstructionism long before any outside influence harms us. Education isn’t important

to those who want to be in power. Educated voters are a problem when they actually get out and vote. This past election was pretty clear cut, and it is time for everyone to start cooperating in Washington as well as in our communities. We liberals were expected to go along and get along while the opposition was in control. We do know how to cooperate, but it seems the losers this past November don’t believe in that concept. Ruth Cain Maple Park

Platitudes won’t stop the guns

A few days after 6-year-old Noah Pozner was gunned down at Newtown’s Sandy Hook School, his mother, Veronique, gave an interview of searing clarity. Journalist Naomi Zeveloff, in a column for The Jewish Daily Forward, described the hardest part of her interview with Pozner. I don’t often provide lengthy excerpts, but this defies paraphrasing: “[Veronique] felt that [Noah’s] body had suffered too many indignities already; she was adamant that he not be autopsied. She wanted him to be buried with a Jewish prayer shawl and with a clear stone with a white angel inside – an ‘angel stone’ — in each of his hands. Veronique was only able to put the stone in his right hand because the left was ‘not altogether there.’ ... She asked the funeral director to put the other one in the left hand spot. ‘I made him promise and he did.’ “Veronique told me that Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy visited her in the funeral home, and she brought him to see Noah’s open casket. I asked her why it was important for her and for the governor to see Noah’s body. ‘I needed it to have a face for him,’ she said. ‘If there is ever a piece of legislation that comes across his desk, I needed it to be real for him.’ ” Zeveloff pressed Veronique Pozner on why she felt the need to see her son’s body. “It is not up to me to say I am only going to look at you and deal with you when you are alive, that I am going to block out the reality of what you look like when you are dead,” she told Zeveloff. “And as a little boy, you have to go in the ground. If I am going to shut my eyes to that I am

VIEWS Connie Schultz not his mother. I had to bear it. I had to do it.” Unprompted, Pozner continued: “We all saw how beautiful he was. He had thick, shiny hair, beautiful long eyelashes that rested on his cheeks. He looked like he was sleeping. But the reality of it was under the cloth he had covering his mouth. ... His jaw was blown away. I just want people to know the ugliness of it so we don’t talk about it abstractly, like these little angels just went to heaven. No. They were butchered. They were brutalized. And that is what haunts me at night.” Nineteen other young children were killed with Noah, who was shot at close range 11 times. We know little about the aftermath. Reporters are reluctant to ask, and most parents don’t have it in them to share the devastating details. We should be grateful to Veronique Pozner for laying her grief raw. She is brave to shake us loose from our platitudes about “angels” and a “better place.” I say this as a woman of faith. Such sentiments, I fear, distance us from the earthly reality of gun violence. We need to feel the monster breathing down our necks. We need to figure out how to bring him down. With cruel timing, exactly one month after the shootings, Apple began offering a free mobile application for the iPhone and the iPad called “NRA: Practice Range.”

Users shoot at targets with various types of guns, including assault weapons, such as an M9 handgun, an M16 assault rifle with a 15-round clip and an AK-47 assault rifle. The game initially was rated appropriate for users as young as 4. Public outcry was immediate, and NPR reported Tuesday that the game is no longer rated for preschoolers. Rather, it’s rated for “12+” because of “frequent/intense realistic violence.” So far, the game’s creator, MEDL Mobile, and the National Rifle Association have refused to confirm or deny the gun lobby’s association with the app. Why the silence, nobody is wondering. Also this week, the NRA released a TV ad attacking the safety of President Barack Obama’s daughters. Despicable – but revealing, too. For the first time in a long, long time, the NRA is scared. On Wednesday, the president unveiled the most sweeping gun control measures in two decades. During his news conference, he said a painting by 7-year-old Grace McDonald – one of the children gunned down in Newtown, Conn. –now hangs in his private study near the Oval Office. Grace’s parents, sitting in the audience, nodded and offered small smiles that, ever so briefly, hid the loss most of us cannot dare to imagine. That, too, has to change.

The $8.5 million state library construction grant awarded to the DeKalb Public Library represents a great opportunity for the community, one that should not be allowed to slip away. However, the library board should not see it as carte blanche in this time of tight budgets. The Library Board has a plan for a 48,000-squarefoot expansion, an addition more than 2½ times larger than the existing Haish Memorial Library. The existing building has not been expanded in 40 years. If you’d like to see for yourself how cramped the space is, tours are available Friday evenings. Library Director Dee Coover has said that community donations will be a major part of the fundraising needed to provide a matching contribution for the grant. The library is rooted For the record in community giving: It opened in 1931 thanks to a The need for expansion $150,000 gift from the estate is clear, and an open effort of barbed-wire baron Jacob to engage and involve the Haish. public is needed to make The library is a comsome kind of expansion munity asset, and it’s fitting come to fruition. that the community be asked to contribute to the effort. No doubt many people would be willing to help with the fundraising effort by contributing their money, their time, or both. Community input must also be part of the process. Library officials must be open with the public on specifics and how they are willing to modify their plans if necessary. The public has yet to hear a figure for how much the library must raise in order to receive the state grant, or what money is available in its reserve fund, which was established in November 2010. DeKalb’s city government, of which the library is technically a part, could be asked to borrow money for the library expansion as well. The city is a home-rule community and therefore does not need a referendum to borrow money. But taxpayers no doubt will want a say in how much is borrowed – they will be the ones asked to repay the loan. Barring a wildly successful fundraising campaign, the board should consider other means of making the project cost-effective. Could there be savings found in building the addition in phases, perhaps by leaving off the proposed third level or leaving the basement area unfinished, for example? Library officials already have scaled back their plans since 2010, when they proposed a new, 89,000square-foot building on the site of the DeKalb Clinic. That plan was plagued by questions about public openness with the public and eventually undone by concerns about the building. This time, the library has an opportunity to do it better. The need for expansion is clear, and an open effort to engage and involve the public is needed to make some kind of expansion come to fruition.

Payroll tax will hurt economy

Careful pay-stub watchers have noticed, seeing their first checks of 2013, how the fiscal cliff deal has really affected them. And it isn’t pretty. While much of the debate in Washington about the fiscal cliff centered around eliminating the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, which happened, and government spending cuts, which didn’t happen, little attention was paid to an issue that has raised taxes for nearly everyone who earns a paycheck — low-income, middleincome and upper-income. In 2011, Social Security payroll taxes were cut from 6.2 percent to 4.2 percent, as a way to help stimulate the economy. It worked – wage-earners spent between 28 and 43 percent of the extra money, using much of the rest to pay off debt, according to a survey by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The tax break was extended in 2012. But, facing an option to extend it again, Congress and President Barack Obama passed. The result is that the average household making $50,000 a year will pay an extra $1,000 this year in taxes. The same Federal Reserve study, the Washington Post reports, has people saying they’ll cut their spending by $710 in response and pull money out of savings to make up the difference. That’ll have an impact on the sputtering national economy. The 2 percent income loss just about wipes out the 2.4 percent increase in weekly earnings built up over all of 2012. And the Wall Street Journal quotes economists’ estimates that it’ll cost the nation between 500,000 and 1 million jobs, and raise the unemployment rate 0.4 percent. But the payroll tax cut wasn’t meant to be permanent, some say, and ending it will save the government money. Both are true. But in 2011, the tax cut wasn’t new spending; it replaced the two-year-old Making Work Pay federal tax credit. And although the federal government will save $95 billion this year by eliminating the tax cut, the fiscal cliff deal spends $68 billion this year on eight corporate subsidies that benefit, among other businesses, Goldman Sachs and NASCAR. Washington may have avoided the fiscal cliff – for now – but all American workers are feeling the effects in their paychecks. And the nation, as a whole, will suffer. Appleton (Wis.) Post-Crescent

Official: Banks hesitant to lend money • GROWTh

Continued from page A1

auditorium at the DeKalb County Farm Bureau building were about 200 officials from local businesses, governments and schools. A financial crisis triggered the Great Recession, and banks and other financial institutions have been hesitant to lend money to people and businesses since. Banks, he said, are holding excessive amounts of money that would normally be lent out. “There is hesitancy to lend out to markets that are still quite imbalanced,” Strauss said, pointing to the housing and commercial real estate markets. He added there were signs of willingness for financial institutions to lend money and for people to borrow it. A number of factors have contributed to the subpar economic growth, Strauss said. He described the country’s political leaders in Washington, D.C. as not being helpful, and people and businesses are not confident. “General confidence remains quite low for consumers as well as businesses,” Strauss said. The news is not much better on the unemployment front. Taking into account the country’s population growth, the economy should be creat-

ing 100,000 jobs every month, Strauss said. The economy added 1.8 million jobs in the past 12 months, which Strauss described as good, but still too slow to recover the 8.7 million jobs that were lost between December 2007 and February 2010. At the end of 2012, the country’s unemployment rate stood at 7.8 percent, which Strauss said was no reason to celebrate. And in forecasts by the Federal Reserve and Blue Chip economists, the lowest unemployment drops to is between 6 and 6.6 percent in 2015. “Even three years from now, our labor markets will be out of balance,” Strauss said. There were bright spots in Strauss’s speech. He described how oil prices, when adjusted for inflation, are lower than prices from 30 years ago. The massive increase in the supply of natural gas because of hydraulic fracturing – commonly referred to as “fracking” – also will generate economic. Strauss also touched on federal fiscal policies. “Ever increasingly, we are hearing about the challenges of fiscal policy is imposing on businesses,” said Strauss, adding business leaders said recently they held off on certain activities because of the uncertainty on the “fiscal cliff” negotiations.

Federal government expenditures, Strauss said, are the highest they have been since World War II, while tax revenue as a share of GDP has stayed between 15 percent and 20 percent for the same period. If one were to divide the federal debt among every person in the country, everyone would have to pay $53,000. That would increase depending on the state in which the person lived, Strauss said. Although much of the speech focused on the national economy, Matt Duffy, executive director of the DeKalb Chamber of Commerce, said he felt confident about the recovery and direction of the local economy after hearing Strauss speak. “I think we have a lot of momentum going locally here, as well,” Duffy said. “I feel like we’re heading in the right direction. Maybe even ahead of some of the numbers he was talking about.” Dave Patzelt, president of ShoDeen – a real estate developer – said he hopes to hear a plan of action for local political and business leaders from Strauss. “What do we do in our small economy here?” Patzelt said. “Something has to change. We can all come back a year from now and hear the same thing again. But what are we going to do? Are we just going to accept it?”

Casualty figures in Algerian standoff vary widely • RESCUE

Africa’s largest country. It also raised the prospect of similar attacks on other countries allied against the extremist warlords and drug traffickers who rule a vast patch of desert across several countries

in northwest Africa. Even the heavy-handed Algerian response may not deter groups looking for martyrdom and attention. Casualty figures in the Algerian standoff varied widely. The remote location is extremely hard to reach and was surrounded by Algerian security forces – who, like

the militants, are inclined to advertise their successes and minimize their failures. “An important number of hostages were freed and an important number of terrorists were eliminated, and we regret the few dead and wounded,” Algeria’s communications minister, Mohand Said Oubelaid, told national media.

Confessions of an acid reflux victim

“And How I BEAT the indigestion Nightmare that Almost Killed Me!” By Ralph Burns; “Former” acid reflux sufferer

Here’s My Story: I've Suffered With Acid Reflux for Almost 40 Years Now. Unless you experience it; you can’t imagine how horrible it is. Every time I ate spicy foods I would get what I called "ROT GUT". Like something was rotting in my stomach. But now I can eat anything... No matter how spicy. Even if I never could before. Let me explain… For the better part of my life; I purposely avoided a lot of foods. Especially ones with even a tiny bit of seasoning. Because if I didn't, I’d experience a burning sensation through my esophagus— like somebody poured hot lead or battery acid down my throat. Add to that, those disgusting "mini-throw ups" and I was in "indigestion hell".

"I was beside myself. What was I gonna do? Keep taking the pills, or suffer with problems that could ultimately be my demise”. Doctors put me on all sorts of antacid remedies. But nothing worked. Or if they did, it would only be for a brief period. And then boom! My nightmare would return. Sometimes, I felt like I was dying. The pain was unbearable and nothing could make it stop. But then my wife, who occasionally suffered with the same problem; gave me one of her prescription acid blockers. It was a miracle. I felt like I could live again. Because before that, I was just miserable. I wanted to kill myself. But thankfully, it worked, and worked well. I felt great, until about one year ago; when I read an FDA warning that scared the heck out of me. It went something like this… FDA WARNING! Using proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) on a long term basis, increases your risk of hip, bone and spinal fractures. That's a particular concern to me, since many acid blockers are PPI's. I've gone through two back surgeries and bilateral hip replacements. I had to ask myself, could PPI's have been responsible for my medical woes? After all...

“The Recommended Treatment for Prilosec®, Prevacid® and Other PPI's is Only 14-DAYS, I Took Them for 14 YEARS!” I was “between a rock and a hard place”. Stop using the PPIs and I'm a “dead man in the water”. It would be unbearable. I wouldn't be able to eat anything. I’d have to go on a water diet. But that FDA warning was scary. I knew I had to stop or else risk developing spinal stenosis. My mother had that. And I watched her die a horrible death. Her spine just fractured. It was the worst death. She didn't deserve that. And neither do I. I had to quit. So I stopped taking PPI's for a day or so. But my indigestion

63-year old Ralph Burns enjoying a spicy-hot portion of Lobster Fra Diavolo. ® Just 15-Minutes after taking AloeCure

“Every time I ate something that didn't agree with me… I’d get what I called ‘Rot Gut’ — like my stomach was rotting out!” was worse than ever. I would rather take the chance of a spinal fracture than to live like that again. I tried everything. Even started using home remedies like Apple cider vinegar. But it just felt like I was pouring even more acid down my throat. Then one day at dinner, a friend of mine said "why don't you try an aloe drink?" I said "aloe drink"? Jeez. That doesn't sound good at all!” The next day he brought me a case of something called AloeCure®. I was skeptical, but I was desperate! So instead of being an ingrate I decided to try it. I was shocked! AloeCure®. Tasted pretty good too. It has a pleasant grape flavor that I actually enjoy drinking. I decided to experiment. I stopped takingthePPI'saltogetherandreplaced it with a daily diet of AloeCure®. Then something remarkable happened… NOTHING! Not even the slightest hint of indigestion. And here’s the best part. The next day we had Italian food — my worst enemy. But for the first time in 40 years I didn't get indigestion without relying on prescription or OTC pills and tablets. Finally, I just didn’t need them anymore! I was so thrilled; I wrote the AloeCure® company to tell them how amazing their product is. They thanked me, and asked me to tell my story... The story that changed my life. I said “Sure, but only if you send me a hefty supply of AloeCure®. I just can't live without it." But don't believe me. You have to try this stuff for yourself. I recommend AloeCure® to anyone who suffers with the same problem I did. It gives you immediate relief. You'll be grateful you did. I sure am. It's the best thing that's happened to me in a long, long time.

Armstrong admits doping in interview

CHICAGO – He did it. He finally admitted it. Lance Armstrong doped. He was light on the details and didn’t name names. He mused that he might not have been caught if not for his comeback in 2009. And he was certain his “fate was sealed” when longtime friend, training partner and trusted lieutenant George Hincapie, who was along for the ride on all seven of Armstrong’s Tour de France wins, was forced to give him up to anti-doping authorities. But right from the start and more than two dozen times during the first of a two-part interview Thursday night with Oprah Winfrey, the disgraced former cycling champion acknowledged what he had lied about repeatedly for years, and what had been one of the worst-kept secrets for the better part of a week: He was the ringleader of an elaborate doping scheme on a U.S. Postal Service team that swept him to the top of the podium at the Tour de France time after time. “At the time it did not feel wrong?” Winfrey asked. “No,” Armstrong replied. “Scary.” “Did you feel bad about it?” she pressed him. “No,” he said. “Even scarier.” “Did you feel in any way that you were cheating?” “No,” Armstrong paused. “Scariest.” “I went and looked up the definition of cheat,” he added a moment later. “And the definition is to gain an advantage on a rival or foe. I didn’t view it that way. I viewed it as a level playing field.” – Wire report

Trestman has 13-month plan LAKE FOREST – When Marc Trestman arrived to his first interview at Halas Hall for the Bears’ head coaching vacancy, he brought more than a résumé and a list of references. Trestman carried a personalized calendar filled with notations. It started in mid-January with his first few plans as the Bears’ coach. It ended Feb. 2, 2014. Ring a bell? That’s the date of Super Bowl XLVIII in East Rutherford, N.J. “Yeah,” Trestman said with a smile several hours after he was introduced as the 14th head coach in franchise history. “Up until the parade.” No word on whether Trestman outlined the best places to buy confetti.

VIEWS Tom Musick For almost an hour Thursday, Trestman stood behind a lectern in a crowded auditorium and shared his philosophy on quality offenses, successful quarterbacks, personnel decisions and leadership in general. He spoke about how excited he was to work with Jay Cutler and how grateful he was to the Bears for giving him his first chance as an NFL head coach. But all that you really to know about Trestman lies in the pages of his 13-month calendar. Bears chairman George McCaskey

flipped quickly through the months, but not because he was disinterested in the details. He couldn’t wait to see how Trestman’s plan culminated. “I went right to the end,” McCaskey said, “where he talks about, ‘After the parade, I’m going to give my staff two weeks off.’ And then he said, ‘The day after we get back, we will begin planning for the next season.’ “I was very impressed with that.” McCaskey wasn’t alone. Bears general manager Phil Emery marveled at the thoroughness of Trestman’s planning. The 13-month calendar caught him off guard at first, and when he shared it with his wife, she had a similar reaction.

To view the Full-Court Press Vidcast, including an interview with DeKalb senior guard Courtney Patrick, log on to Daily-Chronicle. com/dcpreps. with a minute left. However, Burks stood on the court in an empty gym after the game and praised the way his team fought all

game. The Royals (11-11) had turnover problems against the Serena (14-7) press, and had to deal with foul trouble. While third-seeded H-BR let a lead slip away against the second-seeded Huskers, the Royals were in it right until the end, when Bridgette Edmeier had a chance to give the Royals the lead with an open 3-pointer in the final seconds. Lauren Paver also had a chance to force overtime with a putback. It was a far cry from the game these

two teams played a week ago, when the Royals lost by 16 points at the same gym. Burks said his team really showed him something despite the defeat. “You know what, [Serena], a week ago on this same floor came out and embarrassed us and did everything they wanted to against us,” Burks said. “We pretty much laid down and died. Tonight we saw a lot of fight. We saw some desire.”

The Cougars’ new baseball relatives were minutes away from Fifth Third Bank Ballpark when Haug retrieved a piece of wind-blown litter outside the lobby. As expected, Cubs manager Dale Sveum joined several players and employees on a

Cubs Caravan trip to the North Siders’ new Low-A affiliate moments later. The group left after about 30 minutes, completing a spotless visit that was among the first since the teams’ twoyear player development contract was announced in September. “We typically keep it nice and tidy here, but we definitely wanted to welcome them and be at our best when they arrived,” Haug said. “It’s great they included us.” A contingent including second baseman Darwin Barney, outfielder Tony Campana and radio broadcaster Keith Mo-

reland visited the ballpark, getting a breather after a calisthenic-filled morning at Fox Chase Elementary School in Oswego. The Cubs group addressed students about fitness and healthy eating at a morning assembly in what Campana called “a pretty crazy atmosphere.” Handshakes were more prevalent than hollering in Geneva.

Polasek named NIU’s tight ends/fullbacks coach

Tim Polasek, who helped coach North Dakota State to back-toback national championships and three playoff appearances in the last three seasons, was named Northern Illinois’ tight ends and fullbacks coach Thursday. Polasek has spent the past seven seasons at NDSU, where he also was the special teams coordinator for the last three years. The Bison won NCAA Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) titles in both 2011 and 2012, and advanced to the quarterfinals in 2010. “I am extremely excited to take the next step in my life and in my career at Northern Illinois,” Polasek said. “It’s a great move for me, not only moving up to [FBS], but moving to a championship program like NIU with what they’ve been able to do over the last three years and especially coming off of the Orange Bowl appearance.” Polasek is the fourth new member of the Huskie coaching staff for 2013. Assistant coaches Roy Manning (running backs), Brett Diersen (defensive line) and Thad Ward (wide receivers) have already joined the NIU staff, with one more assistant coach still to be added.

Marinelli parts ways with Bears By TOM MUSICK

tmusick@shawmedia.com LAKE FOREST – New head coach Marc Trestman had hoped that Rod Marinelli would return to the Bears as defensive coordinator for the 2013 season. Instead, Marinelli decided that it was time for a fresh start. The Bears now must seek a replacement at defensive coordinator along with several other coaching positions. Seven assistant coaches were dismissed Thursday including ex-offensive coordinator Mike Tice, quarterbacks coach Jeremy Bates, linebackers coach Bob Babich, tight ends coach Mike DeBord, wide receivers coach Darryl Drake, offensive line coach Tim Holt and running backs coach Tim Spencer. Bears general manager Phil Emery said he and Trestman hoped to fill out the rest of the coaching staff by the middle of next week. The Bears already have added two new assistants in Aaron Kromer (offensive coordinator and offensive line

coach) and Joe DeCamillis (assistant coach and specialteams coordinator). The biggest departure is that of Marinelli, who spent the past four seasons with the Bears and the past three seasons as defensive coordinator. Marinelli worked closely with Lovie Smith as the Bears led the NFL with 44 takeaways this Rod Marinelli season. Trestman was asked whether he was open to converting to a 3-4 defensive scheme. “I’m open to whatever it takes to stop football teams,” Trestman said. “But I also know what this football team has done over a number of years. They have excellent football players and they’ve been well coached. “I don’t know the personnel on our football team right now, so to answer the question is premature. If you ask me three to four months from now, I’ll be in a much better position to

answer that question.” To be determined: Trestman offered high praise for Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher without committing to his future with the team. Urlacher, 34, will become an unrestricted free agent when the new league year begins in March. He has said he wants to continue playing, but it’s uncertain whether the Bears will re-sign the veteran or replace him with a younger player. “No. 1, I’ve watched the man play for a lot of years,” Trestman said. “He exemplifies what being a Chicago Bear is all about, and we all know that. When I step out of this room, we’ll begin to study and I’ll talk to Phil about where personnel fits on this football team and how it works. … “I have a feeling that this guy has been a great player for this team.

Bears’ Trestman carries more than confidence • MUSICK Continued from page B1 “She goes, ‘What’s with this 13-month calendar?’ ” Emery said. “I go, ‘He might be a little bit smarter than the rest of us. He’s already got the road map all the way going to that day in February.’ ” A road map typically includes highways and streets. This item came with the tiniest details of the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement, which (among other things) defines how frequently and how long teams are able to practice. “Every day accounted for. Every time slot accounted for. Every meeting accounted for,” Emery said. “Not only that, but he had included the provisions of our CBA and the state’s, which takes a nuclear scientist to figure out exactly what you can do.

“He had called so many people – all of his friends in the league – he knew all the parameters of the CBA and he had already laid it out in calendar form with the understanding of the rules that are very difficult. So, that gives you an example of who Marc is in terms of his organizational skills and his attention to detail.” Still, it’s pretty bold to walk into an interview with “Super Bowl parade” in writing. I suggested as much to Trestman. “Well, I think that what we’re trying to do is pretty bold,” Trestman said. “I mean, I think you have to start at the parade. You have to start at the importance of the parade. “Now, we’re not making proclamations here. We’re not doing that. Because every team wants the same thing. You go into a season – start-

ing today for me – what every team wants is the same vision, right? It’s the same goal. We all want to do that. “Well, if that’s the goal, the goal is the parade. I mean, it’s a symbolic word, but it’s the parade, right? Well, how are we going to get there? If you don’t know where you’re going, how can you plan how to get there? And that was my point to Phil.” It worked. “So, now, we’ve got to fill in each day because they’re all important in getting to that point,” Trestman said. “And the chances of you getting there are not very good if you don’t have the plan to get there, and the proactive daily plan. “So, it wasn’t to be presumptuous, and it wasn’t even to make a point. It’s just a natural thing. We’ve got to know where we’re going here so we can always be in tune

to that, and it’s part of what inspires us.” It inspired McCaskey and Emery. Pretty soon, it’s likely to inspire a group of 53 Bears players. “The beauty of a calendar,” Trestman said, “is you see the day, and that focuses you in, because tomorrow’s not even manufactured. It’s a figment of our imagination. The only reality is today. “By working today, now the next day materializes. It manifests itself into something tangible. But it can’t without today.” With Trestman in charge, the Bears are going deep. Who knows? Maybe they’ll march all the way to a parade.

Cougars’ Opening Day at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark is April 4 • COUGARS Continued from page B1 The gift figured prominently in a group photo situated at the foot of the stairs leading to the upper suite level. While it took the Cougars and Cubs 22 seasons to connect, brass from both sides have trumpeted the partnership for the past four months. Opening Day at Fifth Third Bank Ballpark is April 4. A “Meet the Cubs” hot stove event for fans is scheduled for Feb. 1. Haug said the organization – traditionally a top MWL draw even when it was aligned with Baltimore, Florida, Oakland and Kansas City – has “never

had a buzz like this before.” It reflects in the single-game and season ticket sales Haug says have increased by “a large percentage” compared to 2012, and even has trickled up to the big leagues. Cubs reliever Michael Bowden, who pitched at Fifth Third as part of Waubonsie Valley’s 2005 state tournament team, grew up attending Cougars games, usually watching from the outfield berm. “It’s incredible to have an affiliate just over an hour away from the big league club,” he said. “For families out here that don’t want to drive into the city, they get to see players that will eventually be on the Cubs in the future, and I think

that’s really neat. They come here, it’s very affordable and they get to see young talent and good baseball for an affiliate that is Chicago.” They won’t see the familiar colors of the Cubs, however, other than in scorecards, programs and other stadium handouts. Haug said the Cougars will keep their usual black, green and gold uniform scheme, quashing rumors about a potential change. Still, the Cougars are performing much more than trash detail to accommodate the Cubs, working to revamp video capability and connections at the ballpark in a nod to the organization’s emphasis on that aspect of analysis. A suite

is reserved for Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein and other upper management. Addressing the Cougars front office before leaving with the rest of the caravan, Moreland indicated the route from Fifth Third to Wrigley would be a well-navigated one. Now all that’s left is the wait for spring. “In the past – and no disrespect to Oakland or Kansas City or any of our other affiliates – but there weren’t a lot of those fans in the area,” Haug said. “Here, you’ve got all these Cubs fans, and these are all new fans, because they’re going to come out and see the future Cubs.”

Hunter’s actions deemed wrong, not criminal

NEW YORK – NBA players should consider whether they want to keep Billy Hunter as executive director of the players’ association after a series of wrongdoings, according to a review of the union released Thursday. The report found no evidence of illegal use of union funds, but revealed that Hunter withheld knowledge that his contract was never properly approved, used poor judgment with his hiring practices and spent improperly on travel and gifts. – Wire report

POWER RANKINGS

sports@daily-chronicle.com

1. DeKalb (17-3, 6-0 Northern Illinois Big 12 East Division) The Barbs may not lose in conference. 2. Kaneland (12-7, 4-3 NI Big 12 East) Kaneland beat Morris after losing an NI Big 12 East crossover to Ottawa. 3. Sycamore (8-7, 1-4 NI Big 12 East) This season has been up and down for the young team. 4. Hinckley-Big Rock (11-11, 5-1 Little Ten Conference) The Royals were a favorite heading into the LTC Tourney. 5. Indian Creek (11-11, 2-3 LTC) The Timberwolves won a tight game Tuesday over Somonauk in the LTC tourney. 6. Hiawatha (7-13, 1-4 LTC) Things haven’t been easy in the LTC lately for the Hawks. 7. Genoa-Kingston (2-18, 1-6 Big Northern Conference East Division) Andrea Strohmaier put up 21 points against North Boone.

Sycamore coach Brett Goff knows the Spartans are talented, but the twists and turns a young team takes can make his stomach turn. Just a few weeks ago, the Spartans dominated Morris for their first conference win. Tuesday, they couldn’t stop Rochelle playmaker Michelle Dobbs in a 38-30 loss. “As a coach, it’s been like riding a roller coaster, just hanging on tight, because you don’t know when that next curve’s coming,” Goff said. “We make some mistakes, where it’s like, ‘Wow, that was unexpected,’ and we’ll play well for another couple of quarters and then we’ll make another bone-headed move.” The Spartans take on Kaneland today after losing to the Knights in overtime a month ago. “Kaneland’s a great team, they have very good players, very experienced,” he said. “We just need to make sure we’re in every play on both ends of the floor know what we’re doing, just cut down on mental mistakes, hopefully they’ll improve over time.”

Barbs use break to build health, confidence

DeKalb coach Chris Davenport doesn’t think his team’s

sycamore’s lauren Goff (center) goes up for a shot in the second quarter in the spartans’ 67-47 victory Jan. 4 against Morris in sycamore. shot selection has been bad, but his team’s shooting percentages weren’t where he wanted them to be. Davenport thinks his team simply hasn’t been shooting confidently, so he drilled his team on shooting throughout his teams’

nine-day break, which ended with a 48-35 win over Yorkville on Tuesday. “It’s just knocking down open looks,” Davenport said. “Just being more consistent.” The Barbs also rested their tired legs over the break. Brittney

Patrick missed Tuesday’s game with a minor injury, but Davenport thinks she’ll be fine down the stretch. “We’re a little banged up in spots, so it definitely helped us to get some rest,” Davenport said. “It was definitely well-needed.”

Kaneland-Sycamore rematch tough to forecast Kaneland and Sycamore were dead even for four quarters when the two teams faced off a month ago, which is ironic, because the teams couldn’t be more different. At times, Kaneland has five seniors on the floor. Most of the season, Sycamore has no juniors or seniors in its lineup. In the end, the experience of the Knights won out over Sycamore’s young, raw talent. The Knights and Spartans will face off again today in a matchup

VieWs Anthony Zilis that’s almost impossible to forecast. Ernie Colombe’s team has been steady this season, for the most part. The Knights generally win the games they’re supposed to, thought they’ve lost to some elite teams.

The Spartans have shown they can hang with some of the top teams in the conference, but they haven’t been able to beat Rochelle or Kaneland, two of the top teams in the Northern Illinois Big 12 East, in three close games this season. But the Knights know they can’t overlook Sycamore, which is loaded with young talent. If they can put some consistency together, they’ll be a dangerous team in the conference down the stretch.

Sycamore’s young post players will be difficult to contend with, and they have dangerous scorers in Bailey Gilbert, Lauren Goff and Paige Wogen. Sycamore’s time is clearly down the road. But an upset today wouldn’t be a complete surprise.

Te’o story has too many questions left unanswered TAKE 2

Te’o mentioned ‘girlfriend’ twice recently By toM Coyne

The Associated Press

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Notre Dame All-American linebacker Manti Te’o perpetuated the heartbreaking story about her death not once but twice after discovering his supposed girlfriend of three years never even existed. An Associated Press review of news coverage found that the Heisman Trophy runnerup talked about his doomed love in a Web interview Dec. 8 and again in a newspaper interview published Dec. 11. He and the university said Wednesday that he learned Dec. 6 that it was all a hoax, that not only wasn’t she dead, she wasn’t real. Thursday, a day after Te’o’s inspiring, playing-throughheartache story was exposed as a bizarre lie, Te’o and Notre Dame faced questions from sports writers and fans about whether he really was duped, as he claimed, or whether he and the university were complicit in the hoax and misled the public, perhaps to improve

his chances of winning the Heisman. Yahoo sports columnist Dan Wetzel said the case has “left everyone wondering whether this was really the case of a naïve football player done wrong by friends or a fabrication that has yet to play to its conclusion.” Wednesday, Te’o and Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick said the player was drawn into a virtual romance with a woman who used the phony name Lennay Kekua, and was fooled into believing she died of leukemia in September. They said his only contact with the woman was via the Internet and telephone. Te’o also lost his grandmother – for real – the same day his girlfriend supposedly died, and his role in leading Notre Dame to its best season in decades endeared him to fans and put him at the center of college football’s biggest feel-good story of the year. Relying on information provided by Te’o’s family members, the South Bend Tri-

bune reported in October that Te’o and Kekua first met, in person, in 2009, and that the two had also gotten together in Hawaii, where Te’o grew up. Te’o never mentioned a face-to-face meeting with Kekua in public comments reviewed by the AP. And an AP review of media reports about Te’o since Sept. 13 turned up no instance in which he directly confirmed or denied those stories – until Wednesday. Among the outstanding questions Thursday: Why didn’t Te’o ever clarify the nature of his relationship as the story took on a life of its own? Te’o’s agent, Tom Condon, said the athlete had no plans to make any public statements Thursday in Bradenton, Fla., where he has been training with other NFL hopefuls at the IMG Academy. Notre Dame said Te’o found out that Kekau was not a real person through a phone call he received at an awards ceremony in Orlando, Fla., on Dec. 6. He told Notre Dame coaches about the situation on Dec. 26.

Indian Creek falls to Newark

• LITTLE TEN Continued from page B1

It was an interesting game for both the Royals and Huskers in Thursday’s second semifinal. Serena had a nice start forcing some H-BR turnovers, and the teams combined for just five points in the second quarter. At the start of the second half, the Royals looked like a completely different group, catching fire and getting off to a 31-21 lead, but Serena was able to hang around. To H-BR sophomore Karrigan Cowan, the Royals are just a tough team to handle when they get momentum, which was the case early in the second half. “We had that lead there for a little bit,” she said. “Everybody was working together, everybody came together at once,” she said. “... We all knew what we had to do and we got it done.” H-BR spread its scoring around, as Paver led the Royals with nine points. Cowan and Jacqueline Madden each had seven. Abbie Tosch finished with six points for H-BR. H-BR will play fourth-seeded

Hinckley-Big Rock coach Greg Burks draws up the Royals’ final play late in the fourth quarter Thursday. Indian Creek in today’s thirdplace game, which begins at 6:30 p.m. in Serena. The Timberwolves fell, 53-37, against top-seeded Newark in Thursday’s other semifinal. While the second semifinal came down to the end, Newark showed who the stronger team was early on in the first contest. The Norsemen improved to 18-1 with the win over the T’wolves (11-11), which was their 14th consecutive victory. Newark has been in the LTC Tournament final every year since 2003.

Indian Creek coach Paul Muchmore thought his team looked strong at times, but in the end the Norsemen caused problems with their strong post play and outside shooting. “It was a little bit frustrating, but I thought overall we played well,” Muchmore said. “We had some real tough matchups there, they shot the ball real well.” Kate Thuestad led the Timberwolves with 16 points. Ariel Russell added nine points for Indian Creek, and Samantha Mosley finished with seven.

Building relationships

Congressional candidate to preach in Sycamore By JEFF ENGELHARDT

T

he Rev. Larry Pickens hopes Sunday is not the only day he can preach a message of love and togetherness to a group of people outside of his congregation. Pickens, pastor at Southlawn United Methodist Church in Chicago, will be a special guest pastor at Sycamore United Methodist Church Sunday for Human Relations Day. Human Relations Day is an annual event in the Methodist church that takes place the Sunday before Martin Luther King Jr. Day and encourages relationships with each other and God. While it is a special opportunity for Pickens, the pastor said he hopes to take his message Sunday and spread it in Washington and across the nation as he pursues the congressional seat vacated by Jesse Jackson Jr. “The message of the sermon [Sunday] is how to build relationships and look at what we’re called to do as people of faith to work together to create peace in the world,” Pickens said. It’s a message he said the nation’s leaders need to hear and one he is eager to share. Pickens said he has always had a sense of community service, whether it was serving as a pastor, utilizing his law degree to defend those in need or speaking up in the political realm. Harlene Harden, associate pastor for Sycamore United Methodist Church, said Pickens has always displayed leadership and courage

The Rev. Larry Pickens is pictured with parishoners at Southlawn United Methodist Church in Chicago. throughout the years she has known him. She said Pickens even challenged the Methodist church in one instance, defending a pastor who was dismissed

from the pulpit after marrying a samesex couple, which is not allowed in Methodism. “I think he saw society changing and

want to promote the inclusion of all people. ... The church is slow to change,” she said of Pickens’ decision to defend the former pastor. “We’re not looking in your closed bedroom door here. Do you have the right to walk in the church? Absolutely. Do you have the right to worship God? Absolutely.” Those groundbreaking efforts are one reason Pickens received the blessing of his congregation to pursue a political seat. As a clergy person, Harden said it is a difficult choice for a congregation to willingly sacrifice time with its leader, but it shows the faith members have in Pickens. Pickens said Sunday would still be all about Human Relations Day and he is focused on reaching out to more people and gaining an understanding of the realities people face in Sycamore and DeKalb. “We are a very connected church,” he said. “I think people want to be engaged with the church. A lot of people are searching for something and the church has the potential of offering them that.” Harden said Pickens is another example of the interesting and compelling speakers the church attempts to bring in year round. Bishop Zothan Mawia, a pastor from Myanmar, was a guest speaker last year. While Pickens does not bring the same international flare, Harden said she is excited for one special aspect Pickens brings. “I love men who wear bow ties,” she said with a laugh.

Good News! quartet to perform at SUMC

Good News! Men’s Quartet will celebrate the release of their first CD with a concert and CD signing party on Jan. 26 at Sycamore United Methodist Church. The 5 p.m. concert will be followed by a CD signing party and refreshments. Good News! has been singing together for six years. The members come from many different walks of life – Lanny Sanner is a quality engineer, Jim McCue is the business and finance administrator at SUMC, Joel Maurer is a civil engineer for the city of DeKalb, and Doug Elder, the director, is a local government administrator. Ann Elder and Phyllis Horst accompany the group on piano and guitar, and each have education backgrounds. Originally the group was known as “the men’s quartet from SUMC.” Then one year they sang a very inspiring Christmas song titled “Good News.” After singing that song, they knew that what they wanted to communicate all year long was the good news that

Jesus came as a baby, ultimately to die for everyone’s sins. So the name of that song became the name of their quartet, with an added exclamation point! The quartet has traveled all over northern Illinois to give concerts and lead worship services, including picnics, retirement centers, and the Men’s Spiritual Congress in Lake Geneva, Wis. They released their first professional recording, “Singing to the Glory of God,” before Christmas, and it has been received extremely well. Each of the singers will give a word of testimony as part of the Saturday celebration service and concert on Jan. 26. Following worship, there will be hors d’oeuvres and punch, and the singers will be available to sign any CDs purchased that evening. Sycamore United Methodist is located at 160 Johnson Ave. For more information about the concert or the church’s programs, call the church office at 815-895-9113.

Wife’s cousin not fooled by king of whoppers

dear Abby: My elderly uncle and aunt have a son-in-law who – to put it mildly – spins tall tales. “Tom” has been EVERYwhere, done EVERYthing and insists on telling anyone who will listen all about it. He speaks many languages fluently (until someone addresses him in one of them) and has had countless adventures in various countries, although he can’t locate them on a map. My uncle and aunt have bought two cars for their financially unstable daughter and this phony. Both times, Tom insisted on maintaining them himself (another of his legendary skills). Afterward, both cars required major repairs and eventually had to be scrapped. After Tom’s stint as a highly decorated Navy SEAL,

deAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips he morphed into a genius at creating computer software, when he wasn’t touring with a famous bluegrass band – the name of which he can’t remember. I am concerned that my uncle and aunt are so awed by this man that they might one day allow him to manage their finances (there is no topic Tom is not an expert on) or let him fix the brakes on their vehicle. I think you know where I’m heading. I have to bite my tongue to keep from saying, “Tom, Yokohama is a city, not a country. And if you’re really best friends with Johnny

Depp, why not invite him over so we can all meet him? Oh, and what you’re passing off as Farsi is Pig Latin.” Is there a way to tactfully intervene before something awful happens without upsetting anyone? – The Queen Of England dear Royal Highness: Yes, if you do it privately, and say you are speaking up only because you are worried about their welfare. Then explain why you think Tom’s stories don’t hold water and point out that if he should volunteer any financial advice to them they should first run it past an unbiased non-family member such as their banker, lawyer, CPA or pastor before making any investments. From your description, Tom appears to be a con

man or compulsive liar. But whether your uncle and aunt choose to accept your input is up to them. dear Abby: I work at home and use my computer. Everyone who lives here is over 35. My step-grandchildren visit regularly, and I have told the children’s mother that I have no parental restrictions on my computer. She assured me not to worry about it because she has reinforced the rules of responsible Internet usage with them and is confident her children won’t break the rules. As far as I know, they haven’t. Today, one of my brothersin-law visited and brought along his young teenage daughter. I let her play on the computer, and he caught her in a chat room with an older teenage boy. Instead of

blaming her, he attacked ME for being too permissive with children and computers. Do you think it is my responsibility to “protect” his teenager on my computer? – Just A Geek in South Carolina dear Just A Geek: No, I do not. I suspect that you were attacked because of displaced anger. His daughter deserved the scolding; however, because he could not (for whatever reason) scold her, he directed his anger at you instead.

Acupuncture is promising headache remedy

dear dr. K: I suffer from chronic tension headaches. Do you think acupuncture might help? dear Reader: Acupuncture is a form of complementary or alternative medicine, and many of my patients ask about it. It first gained recognition in the United States in 1971 when a well-known New York Times columnist, James Reston, developed appendicitis on a trip to China. His pain following surgery was treated not with conventional pain medicines but with acupuncture. Reston reported that his pain had been completely relieved by acupuncture. His standing and credibility caused many people to take acupuncture seriously. Acupuncture has long been used to treat headaches. But until recently, there

at least half. Only 16 percent of those who received typical headache treatment, but no acupuncture, reported the same level of headache relief. The migraine review hadn’t been strong evidence found evidence that getting to support its use for headregular acupuncture treatache pain.

pathways. Acupuncture has many variations. It typically involves four to 10 needles that are left in place for 10 to 30 minutes. A course of treatment may include six to 12 sessions. Most people report that acupuncture needles cause little or no pain. Acupuncture is among the most promising of nontraditional headache therapies. The chief downsides are the cost and the time. If you decide to try acupuncture, do your homework before choosing a practitioner, as licensing requirements vary from state to state. If possible, choose a therapist with a state license. If you live in a state that doesn’t require licensing, seek out a practitioner who’s certified by the National Certification Commission for

Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. You may also want to get a referral from your doctor. (In any case, inform your doctor if you are going to try acupuncture.) And make sure that all needles are disposable or are properly sterilized before use. I think acupuncture is worth a try. Even if it doesn’t provide complete relief, it may enable you to cut back on your pain medications. dear Readers: In my column of Dec. 19, I inadvertently spoke of achieving heart benefits by “lowering” HDL (“good”) cholesterol. Of course, I meant by “raising” HDL cholesterol, as was clear in the rest of the column. I’m sorry for the lapse. – Doctor K

My boyfriend became like a crazed wild animal dr. Wallace: Michael and I have been dating for more than six months, and they were the greatest six months of my life. He was a true gentleman and treated me with respect and dignity. All that came crashing down last Friday night. After a movie, we parked in our favorite “dark” spot. Usually when we go there, we talk, listen to music and hug and kiss, nothing more. But last Friday, as soon as we parked, he was all over me like an oc-

TOdAY – Your chart indicates that in the year ahead you are likely to have some unusually strong ambitions. This could be due to some special knowledge you’ve acquired that you feel can take you places. cAPRicORN (dec. 22-Jan. 19) – To be on the safe side, it would be wise to avoid issues on which you and your special someone hold strong, opposing views. It won’t take much to light the other’s fuse. AQuARius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – Harboring a negative attitude will have a strong effect on the results of everything you do. This will include even most assignments that you normally perform by rote. Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20) – You are entitled to have some fun and enjoy yourself, as long as you don’t overindulge or spend too lavishly on your personal pleasures. Both would carry heavy penalties. ARies (March 21-April 19) – Emphasizing only your interests without any concern for those of others will not only turn off everyone, it will lessen your hopes of getting what you want as well. TAuRus (April 20-May 20) – Guard against a tendency to make a snap judgment based on incomplete information. An incorrect conclusion will take you completely off track and only confuse you further. GeMiNi (May 21-June 20) – It’s never a good day to lend to or borrow from a friend, so don’t start now. Discipline might be required in order to avoid doing so, but it behooves you to muster up the necessary strength. cANceR (June 21-July 22) – Our behavior is always being scrutinized by our peers, opponents and supporters. Don’t try to please them all – just watch your step and do as best you can. LeO (July 23-Aug. 22) – Even if you believe your ideas and methods are better than those of others, they don’t want to hear it, so keep it to yourself. Instead, try to accept others’ points of view with an open mind. viRGO (Aug. 23-sept. 22) – It behooves you to be extremely cautious about how you use your money, especially if you’re considering a major investment. Make sure you have all the facts at your disposal. LiBRA (sept. 23-Oct. 23) – This could be one of those days when you feel that everyone but you is out of step with the world. Unfortunately, the reverse is likely to be true, and it’s you who is not in sync with the majority. scORPiO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – The only way you’ll be able to lighten your share of the load is to acquire some assistance. However, your chances of getting others to drop what they’re doing to help you are nil. sAGiTTARius (Nov. 23-dec. 21) – You can be either great or completely horrible about managing your or anybody else’s resources. Be careful, because today it might be the latter.

This time he ripped some of my clothing. I had to borrow his jacket so my parents wouldn’t see the damage to my clothes. He called today and said that he couldn’t help himself because I turn him on so much that he can’t control himself. He said he was going

to try very hard to behave himself and that he loved me very much. I don’t know if I should go out with Michael again. I want to if he is going to be civilized, but not if he is animalistic. Please hurry with your advice! – Nameless, Anaheim, Calif. Nameless: Michael has grossly overstepped the rules of dating, not once, but twice, and that’s two times too many. Things have gone too far at this point to let him

off with an apology and a meaningless promise to “try” to behave himself. Believe me, he won’t. He’ll head for the dark spot every time, and the date will end with a wrestling match. I’d say it’s time to give a big, permanent NO to all this nonsense and stop going out with him.

Give partner a helping double

Benjamin Franklin said, “If a man could have half of his wishes, he would double his troubles.” At the bridge table, sometimes a double can increase an opponent’s troubles. In this deal, if East does not double North’s five-diamond Blackwood reply, West will lead the club queen against six spades. But if East doubles, West will start with the diamond four. What should South do in each case? When North responded with a three-spade gameinvitational limit raise, South launched Blackwood. This was a theoretical error because he had two immediate heart losers. If North had shown no aces, South would not have known what to do. South should have control-bid (cue-bid) four clubs, showing a first-round control there and expressing slam interest. Then, when North control-bid four hearts, South could have jumped straight to six spades. After a club lead, South wins, draws trumps, and runs the heart jack. The finesse loses, but declarer has 12 tricks. When West leads a diamond, though, South must be careful. There will be a tendency to assume that the heart finesse is winning, but that line leads to trouble. Declarer should play low from the board and capture East’s diamond queen with his ace, draw trumps, and play three rounds of clubs, ruffing the last in his hand. Then South casts adrift with his last diamond. East wins, but is endplayed. If he shifts to a heart, it is into dummy’s ace-queen. Or if he leads a minor-suit card, declarer sluffs a heart and ruffs on the board.
