DeKalb spends $46K to study possible TIFs By DAVID THOMAS email@example.com DeKALB – DeKalb aldermen voted unanimously to hire PGAV Architects at the cost of $46,000 to explore the feasibility of creating new tax increment financing districts along South Fourth Street and 2131-2211 Sycamore Road. The two areas were previously identified in a preliminary report as being qualified
for a special tax mechanism that local governments use to encourage development. City Manager Mark Biernacki said he will have a better idea in a month in regards to the timeline for the TIF creation process. A number of aldermen, including Tom Teresinski and Dave Baker of the 2nd and 6th Wards, respectively, spoke to the need of creating TIF districts in these areas.
“It’s been long-awaited,” Baker said. Once the districts are created, the city should transfer money from the two current districts in order to jump start the others, Teresinski said. City officials are able to do this if the districts are adjacent. TIF districts freeze property taxes at a base level for 23 years. As the property values increase, the difference be-
tween the base and the property taxes are captured in a special fund that can be used for economic and public improvements. The city already has two districts, one located south of Lincoln Highway, stopping at Taylor Street. The other district encompasses areas between Sycamore Road and Lincoln Highway. The lifespan of a district can be extended by another
12 years through action from the General Assembly. Once it expires, it is gone forever – including any money left in the accounts. Nine other local governments would find their property tax revenue limited if the TIF districts were created. However, the decision to create these districts rests with the council alone. Biernacki said a number of public hearings will be held in the coming
months. Former DeKalb Mayor Bessie Chronopoulos said she supported creating the districts to give the area a muchneeded boost, but she hoped the city remained transparent throughout the process. In past meetings, Chronopoulos has voiced concerns about the transparency of other public bodies.

IRS will start accepting returns Wednesday
Preparing for the

DeKALB – Whether a person is filing their own taxes or having them prepared by a professional, Bernie Boona recommended having all of the necessary paperwork on hand. “It’s easier to file when you have everything,” said Boona, the owner of Accounting For Your Success, 1958 Aberdeen Court, Suite 2, in Sycamore. “You can’t do part of your return and then come back and finish it later.” That paperwork can include any forms or letters from a person’s employer or college, or from the Internal Revenue Service. Anything that might be necessary, he said, also recommending having last year’s income tax bill on hand. Outside of minor changes in deduction and credit amounts and a rule change in the Earned Income Tax Credit, very little has changed in this year’s tax code, local experts said. The only thing that’s frustrating local agencies is the IRS delaying the release of certain forms. Starting Wednesday, the vast majority of Americans will be able to file their tax returns. The reason for the delay came from the last-minute negotiations over the “fiscal cliff” – a series of tax increases and spending cuts that were set to occur at the start of 2013 – the IRS had to update its forms and software before it could begin accepting returns. The delay has been a problem for local tax preparers such as C.L. Albertson, the owner of Lalley Accounting Service, 231 S. Second St., Suite 1, in DeKalb. Albertson said he wasn’t able to download forms from the IRS website until a few days ago. “I’m expecting a lot more extensions this year than in previous years,” Albertson said.

Immigration overhaul? GOP, Democratic senators vow action By ERICA WERNER The Associated Press
WASHINGTON – Side by side, leading Democratic and Republican senators pledged Monday to propel far-reaching immigration legislation through the Senate by summer providing a possible path to citizenship for an estimated 11 million people now in the U.S. illegally. The senators acknowledged pitfalls that have doomed such efforts in the past, but they suggested that November’s elections – with Hispanics voting heavily for President Barack Obama and other Democrats –
could make this time different. Passage of the emotionally charged legislation by the Democratic-controlled Senate is far from assured, and a taller hurdle could come later in the House, which is dominated by conservative Republicans who’ve shown little interest in immigration overhaul. Obama will lay out his own proposals today, most of which mirror the Senate plans. Besides the citizenship provision, including new qualifications, the Senate measure would increase border security, allow more temporary workers to stay and crack down on employers who would hire illegal
immigrants. The plans are still short on detail, and all the senators conceded that months of tedious and politically treacherous negotiations lie ahead. But with a re-elected Obama pledging his commitment, the lawmakers argued that six years after the last sustained congressional effort at an immigration overhaul came up short in the Senate, chances for approval this year are much better. “Other bipartisan groups of senators have stood in the same spot before, trumpeting similar proposals,” said Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y. “But we believe this will be the year
Congress finally gets it done. The politics on this issue have been turned upside down,” Schumer said, arguing that polls show more support than ever for immigration changes and political risk in opposing it. “Elections. Elections,” said Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. “The Republican Party is losing the support of our Hispanic citizens. And we realize that there are many issues on which AP photo we think we are in agreement with our Hispanic citizens, but Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. (left) and Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y. confer this is a pre-eminent issue with as they and other leading senators announce that they have reached agreement on the principles of sweeping legislation to rewrite the those citizens.”

Soldier has double-arm transplant By MARILYNN MARCHIONE The Associated Press On Facebook, he describes himself as a “wounded warrior...very wounded.” Brendan Marrocco was the first soldier to survive losing all four limbs in the Iraq War, and doctors revealed Monday that he’s received a doublearm transplant. Those new arms “already move a little,” he tweeted a month after the operation. Marrocco, a 26-year-old New Yorker, was injured by a roadside bomb in 2009. He had the transplant Dec. 18 at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, his father said Monday. Alex Marrocco said his son does not want to talk with reporters until a news conference today at the hospital, but the younger Marrocco has repeatedly mentioned the transplant on Twitter and posted photos. “Ohh yeah today has been one month since my surgery and they already move a little,” Brendan Marrocco tweeted Jan. 18. Responding to a tweet from NASCAR driver Brad Keselowski, he wrote: “dude I can’t tell you how exciting this is for me. I feel like I finally get to start over.” The infantryman also received bone marrow from the same dead donor who supplied his new arms. That novel approach is aimed at helping his body accept the new limbs with minimal medication to prevent rejection. The military sponsors operations like these to help wounded troops. About 300 have lost arms or hands in Iraq or Afghanistan. Unlike a life-saving heart or liver transplant, limb transplants are aimed at improving quality of life, not extending it. Quality of life is a key concern for people missing arms and hands –
prosthetics for those limbs are not as advanced as those for feet and legs. “He was the first quad amputee to survive,” and there have been four others since then, Alex Marrocco said. The Marroccos want to thank the donor’s family for “making a selfless decision ... making a difference in Brendan’s life,” the father said. Brendan Marrocco has been in public many times. During a July 4 visit last year to the Sept. 11 Memorial with other disabled soldiers, he said he had no regrets about his military service. “I wouldn’t change it in any way. ... I feel great. I’m still the same person,” he said. The 13-hour operation was led by Dr. W.P. Andrew Lee, plastic surgery chief at Johns Hopkins. It was the seventh double-hand or double-arm transplant done in the United States. AP photo
Army Sgt. Brendan Marrocco of Staten Island, N.Y., wearing a prosthetic arm, poses for a picture at the 9/11 Memorial on July 4 in New York. Lee led three of those earlier operations when he worked at the University of Pittsburgh, including the only aboveelbow transplant that had been done at the time, in 2010. Marrocco’s “was the most complicated one” so far, Lee said in an interview Monday. It will take more than a year to know how fully Marrocco will be able to use the new arms. “The maximum speed is an inch a month for nerve regeneration,” he explained. “We’re easily looking at a couple years” until the full extent of recovery is known. While at Pittsburgh, Lee pioneered the immune-suppression approach used for Marrocco. The surgeon led handtransplant operations on five patients, giving them marrow from their donors
in addition to the new limbs. All five recipients have done well, and four have been able to take just one anti-rejection drug instead of combination treatments most transplant patients receive. Minimizing anti-rejection drugs is important because they have side effects and raise the risk of cancer over the long term. Those risks have limited the willingness of surgeons and patients to do more hand, arm and even face transplants. Lee has received funding for his work from the Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine, a cooperative research network of top hospitals and universities around the country that the government formed about five years ago. With government money, he and several other plastic surgeons around the country are preparing to do more face transplants, possibly using the new immune-suppression approach. Marrocco expects to spend three to four months at Hopkins, then return to a military hospital to continue physical therapy, his father said. Before the operation, he had been fitted with prosthetic legs and had learned to walk on his own. He had been living with his older brother in a specially equipped home on New York’s Staten Island that had been built with the help of several charities. Shortly after moving in, he said it was “a relief to not have to rely on other people so much.” The home was heavily damaged by superstorm Sandy last fall. Despite being in a lot of pain for some time after the operation, Marrocco showed a sense of humor, his father said. He had a hoarse voice from the tube that was in his throat during the long surgery and decided he sounded like Al Pacino. He soon started doing movie lines.

Iran says it successfully sent a monkey into space By ALI AKBAR DAREINI The Associated Press TEHRAN, Iran – A gray-tufted monkey strapped in a pod resembling an infant’s car seat rode an Iranian rocket into space and returned safely, officials said Monday in what was described as a step toward Tehran’s goal of a manned space flight. The mission also touched on concerns that advances in Iran’s rocket expertise could be channeled into military use for long-range weapons that might one day carry nuclear warheads. Iran says it does not seek atomic weapons. Launching a live animal into space – as the U.S. and the Soviet Union did more than a half-century ago in the infancy of their programs – may boost a country’s stature. But John Logsden, a space policy professor emeritus at George Washington University, said Iran’s achievement should draw no concern. “A slight monkey on a suborbital flight is nothing to get too excited about,” he said. “They already had the capability to launch warheads in their region.” U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said the U.S. had no way to confirm the monkey’s voyage, but that it was concerned by the reports because “any space launch vehicle capable of placing an object in orbit is directly relevant to the development of long-range ballistic missiles.” The U.N. Security Council has expressly forbidden Iran from such ballistic missile activity, Nuland added. In June 2010, the Security Council banned Iran from pursuing “any activity related to ballistic missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons.” With its ambitious aerospace program, Iran has said it wants to become a technological leader for the Islamic world. It’s not the first time Iran has announced it had rocketed a live creature out of the Earth’s atmosphere. The country sent a mouse, a turtle and some worms into space in 2010, officials said. But the purported successful voyage of the small monkey, shown wearing a protective vest, put Iran among just a

In this undated image taken from AP Television, scientists in Iran surround a monkey ahead of a space launch. Iran said it had successfully sent the monkey into space Monday, describing the launch as another step toward Tehran’s goal of a manned space flight. According to a brief report on state TV, the monkey was sent up to a height of 120 kilometers (72 miles) on board a rocket dubbed Pishgam, or Pioneer in Farsi. handful of nations that have sent a primate into space in a mission seen as a precursor of human spaceflight. No name was given for the monkey. Earlier this month, the director of Iran’s space agency, Hamid Fazeli, said Iran wanted to launch its first manned space mission in as soon as five years – a goal that stretches back to the shah’s fascination with NASA years before the 1979 Islamic Revolution. “Iran is on its way to send a man into space,” said Iran’s Defense Minister Gen. Ahmad Vahidi in comments posted on the ministry’s website. He added that the capsule “returned to Earth safely at the expected speed, together with the monkey inside,” without giving further details. According to state TV, the rocket dubbed “Pishgam,” or “Pioneer” in Farsi, reached a height of 120 kilometers (72 miles), pushing into the threshold of space. Iran’s state TV broadcast its first video pictures showing Iranian scientists fixing the seated monkey into the
rocket before the launch. It did not give any details on the timing or location of the launch. Still images also showed the monkey wearing a type of molded body protection and being strapped tightly into a red plastic seat. The monkey was shown immobilized with straps and his face poked through a purple shield that covered his head and upper body. Fazel said the monkey parachuted safely with the remaining last stage of the rocket. The TV also showed experts walking to the site in the middle of a desert where the monkey landed. Fazel told state TV that Iran will launch a bigger rocket together with a larger animal to obtain greater safety assurances before sending a man into space. For Iran, its aerospace program is a source of national pride at a time of slumping economic fortunes from Western sanctions. It’s also one of the pillars of Iran’s aspirations to be seen as the technological hub for Islamic and developing countries.

Kinzinger visits DeKalb High School
Icy roads blamed for crashes across DeKalb County
By STEPHANIE HICKMAN firstname.lastname@example.org
By JILLIAN DUCHNOWSKI
DeKALB – As U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Channahon, entered the various classrooms, studios and gyms of DeKalb High School on Monday, he was amazed. Kinzinger and DeKalb School District 428 Superintendent Jim Briscoe weaved in and out of hallways and classrooms, stopping to observe some of the school’s biggest assets, such as the auditorium and multiple gyms. While touring the 400,000-sqaure-foot school, Kinzinger frequently used one word: “Wow.” “[This tour] reinforces to me the importance of education and what we have to do in Washington from our limited role in education,” Kinzinger said. “We can help in a funding role, especially in areas that are underserved or underfunded to give kids all around the country an opportunity to experience something like this.” Kinzinger represents Illinois’ 16th Congressional District, which was recently redrawn to include DeKalb and much of DeKalb County. Kinzinger requested the tour to get to know the areas in his district and understand some of the important issues. One of these issues, he said, is education. A strong advocate of regular exercise and physical activity by children and teens, Kinzinger was especially pleased with the various athletic facilities and fitness

Briscoe also gushed about the district’s newest addition, which opened in August 2011. The building was built with part of the proceeds from a $110 million building bond issue approved by voters in 2008. “We’re the best-hidden se-
cret in the western suburbs,” Briscoe told Kinzinger during the tour. Kinzinger seemed to agree. “I would say this is one of the most state-of-the-art high schools obviously in the state, probably in the country,” he said. Kinzinger made a point to stop and talk with several students throughout the tour, discussing topics ranging from aviation to journal-
ism. “Interacting with the kids was great,” he said afterward. “I loved that and every aspect of it.” After the congressman finished the tour, he commented that one of the greatest aspects of the school was the atmosphere. “When you walk in here it gives you a feeling of wanting to learn,” he said. “And that makes a big difference.”
NIU honors five Forward, Together Forward scholars Daily Chronicle
DeKALB – This year’s Forward, Together Forward scholars include a biomedical engineer who did service work in Tanzania, a harpist who has written awardwinning plays and a Spanish major active in Spring Break volunteer trips. The five scholars, who were recognized at Northern Illinois University on Sunday, exemplify the commitment to service and academics that characterize the five students who died in the Feb. 14, 2008, campus shooting, NIU Provost Ray Alden said. Each of the five will receive a $4,000 scholarship for the 2013-2014 academic year. “The quality of the students, the fact that many of them are still maintaining 4.0 GPAs and are involved in many activities is really commendable,” said Alden, who added he also was impressed with their variety of academ-
ic specialties. The five winners were chosen from among 37 applicants who wrote essays about what it means to be an NIU Huskie, about character and about goals for helping the community, according to a news release. They also described how they would honor the memories of Gayle Dubowski, Catalina Garcia, Julianna Gehant, Ryanne Mace and Daniel Parmenter.
The scholars are: • Taylor Bogan, a sophomore from Crete majoring in biomedical engineering and minoring in applied math. While battling Hodgkin lymphoma, she has maintained a 3.5 GPA and traveled to Tanzania last year with Engineers Without Borders to upgrade a school so it could provide three meals daily to its 600 students.
• Caitlin Cavannaugh, an acting major with a 4.0 GPA, started a volunteer organization in her hometown of Willow Springs that provides live music for people in nursing homes, retirement homes and hospices. She also recently spent three months in the Moscow Art Threater School in Russia and founded the 4U Benefit Concert, an annual benefit concert for mission centers and homeless shelters.

• Guadalupe Lopez, an elementary education major from Glendale Heights, is an NIU Research Rookie who created a case study on a single Latina mother and her child’s special education. She has volunteered in local bilingual classrooms and with programs encouraging young girls to
• Evan Wittke, a junior majoring in anthropology and biology, wants to become a research physician after his mother died in March of complications from a stroke. He works with a cancer research team in the laboratory of Biological Sciences Chairman Barrie Bode.
• Sarah Pollack, a junior majoring in Spanish, is leading an NIU Alternative Spring Break group after participating in past trips to Oklahoma to care for wild and abandoned animals and to Florida to help with oil spill restoration. She also has been active with the Latino Resource Center and the NIU Spanish Club.
The National Weather Service is warning that heavy rains could cause flooding today, about 18 hours after freezing rain and ice were blamed for at least seven crashes Sunday and Monday across DeKalb County. Only one accident resulted in an injury. A 40-year-old Schaumburg man was taken to Kishwaukee Community Hospital with head injuries after a crash about 4:15 p.m. Sunday in the 15300 block of Plank Road near Sycamore, according to a DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office news release. He was driving a 2007 Dodge Sprinter east when he veered south, hit a utility pole and two trees, police said. He was not listed at the hospital Monday evening. A Saab carrying two Sycamore women slid off Old State Road near Schafer Road west of Sycamore about 6:15 a.m. Monday, police said. Their vehicle slid into a ditch and hit a utility pole before stopping

SHABBONA – Police are cautioning fishermen to be careful on the ice after two men fell through Shabbona Lake about 12:15 p.m. Monday. The duo were warmed in an ambulance but were not injured, Illinois Conservation police Sgt. Robert Frazier said. Police recommend wearing life jackets while ice fishing or walking on the ice. A 71-year-old Bolingbrook
man and a 66-year-old Naperville man were walking on the ice about 40 yards from shore near Somonauk Point in Shabbona Lake State Park, Frazier said. They realized the ice wasn’t safe and were turning around when the older man fell through the ice up to his chest. Then, the other man broke through the ice, getting wet up to his knees as he grabbed onto the ice shanty, Frazier said. “There were people who were there who were fishing
who weren’t too far away from them,” Frazier said. Both were able to pull themselves out, the older man by using the ice picks he was wearing. They fell through the ice in an area where geese had been paddling, keeping the water open until Sunday night, so the area had been frozen for a matter of hours, Frazier said. “We’ve had a lot of warm and cold weather, so the ice isn’t quite as strong as normal,” he said.

Congress passes superstorm aid bill By ANDREW MIGA The Associated Press
WASHINGTON – Three months after superstorm Sandy ravaged coastal areas in much of the Northeast, Congress on Monday sent a $50.5 billion emergency relief measure for storm victims to President Barack Obama for his signature. “I commend Congress for giving families and businesses the help they deserve, and I will sign this bill into law as soon as it hits my desk,” Obama said in a statement late Monday. Despite opposition from conservatives concerned about adding billions of dollars more to the nation’s
debt, the Senate cleared the long-delayed bill, 62-36, after House Republicans had stripped it earlier this month of spending unrelated to disasters. All 36 votes against the bill were from Republican senators. “This is a huge relief,” said Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., noting the vote came 91 days after Sandy struck. The House passed the bill two weeks ago. Lawmakers say the money is urgently needed to start rebuilding homes, businesses, public transportation facilities and other infrastructure damaged by the Oct. 29 storm, one of the worst to strike the Northeast. Sandy roared up the East
Coast and is blamed for more than 130 deaths and tens of billions of dollars in property damage, particularly in New York and New Jersey. The measure is aimed primarily at helping residents and businesses as well as state and local governments rebuild. The biggest chunk of money is $16 billion for Housing and Urban Development Department community development block grants. Of that, about $12.1 billion will be shared among Sandy victims as well as those from other federally declared disasters in 2011-2013. The remaining $3.9 billion is solely for Sandy-related projects. More than $11 billion will go to the Federal Emergency
Management Agency’s disaster relief aid fund for providing shelter, restoring power and other storm-interrupted utility services and meeting other immediate needs arising from Sandy and other disasters. Another $10 billion is devoted to repairing New York and New Jersey transit systems and making them more resistant to future storms. Sen. Dan Coats, R-Ind., said Republicans weren’t seeking “to undermine” help for Sandy victims but instead were trying to make sure that the money was actually being spent on emergency needs. “We’re simply trying to say we need some standards,” Coats said.

8briefs Chicago reaches 40 homicides in January
CHICAGO – A bloody weekend in which seven people died has put an abrupt end, for now, to hopes that Chicago might be putting a lid on its homicide rate. The homicides put the total for the year thus far at 40 – the same as for January 2012. That year ended with the city seeing more than 500 homicides for the first time since 2008. With a few days still left in the month, Chicago is poised to have the deadliest January since 2002, when there were 45. Police say their gang-fighting strategy is effective and that the violence might have been even worse had police not launched that strategy.
Preckwinkle endorses Hutchinson in 2nd District
CHICAGO – Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle says she’s endorsing state Sen. Toi Hutchinson in the race to replace former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. Preckwinkle told The Associated Press on Monday that it was a difficult decision because the candidates are qualified and include former state Rep. Robin Kelly who once worked for her. Preckwinkle says Hutchinson is well placed to win because her legislative district is within the 2nd Congressional District. She says it’s nothing against Kelly, who was Preckwinkle’s former chief administrative officer. She says Hutchinson is simply the “strongest candidate.”
U.S. fighter jet missing off the Italian coast

There was no early word on the fate of the plane or the pilot.
Boy Scouts consider change in no-gays policy
NEW YORK – The Boys Scouts of America is considering a dramatic change in its controversial policy of excluding gays as leaders and youth members. Under the change being considered, the different religious and civic groups that sponsor Scout units would be able to decide for themselves how to address the issue – either maintaining an exclusion of gays or opening up their membership. The announcement of the possible change came Monday after years of protests over the policy – including petition campaigns that have prompted some corporations to suspend donations to the Boy Scouts. Under the proposed change, said BSA spokesman Deron Smith, “the Boy Scouts would not, under any circumstances, dictate a position to units, members, or parents.” – Wire reports

IRS more stringent with Earned Income Tax Credit • TAX TIME Continued from page A1 Boona said there still will be a number forms unavailable to some individuals and businesses. Those who are looking to claim residential energy credits, depreciation of property or general business credits will have to wait. “It’s true for the majority of taxpayers,” Boona said of Wednesday’s filing time. Albertson and Boona said the IRS is being more stringent in checking information
from filers who claim the Earned Income Tax Credit. The Earned Income Tax Credit is given to individuals or married couples depending on how many dependent children they have. For instance, a family with three or more children with income of less than $50,270 a year can earn a credit up $5,891. “For people who have very low incomes, that could be a substantial amount of money,” Albertson said. For the Earned Income Tax Credit, the person’s
name on the tax return must match the name associated with their Social Security number, Boona said. Otherwise, the IRS will reject it. Boona said normally the IRS had a schedule for when a person would see a tax refund. This year, the IRS has announced tax filers will receive their tax refunds within 21 days of filing. This year might be a relatively static year when it comes to tax code changes, but that will change in the future. Boona said people will see changes when they
begin filing their 2013 taxes in ‘14, and by ‘15, the IRS should have issued rules on the Affordable Care Act that could affect a filers’ tax credits and rates. A number of tax deductions were raised because of inflation, The Associated Press reported. A married couple filing a joint return can receive a standard deduction of $11,900. For singles and married individuals filing separate returns, the standard deduction is $5,950. For the heads of households, the deduction is $8,700.
Chronopoulos concerned about access to information
A DeKalb County resident has many different options for tax preparation, ranging from local firms to software programs like TurboTax. On Friday, Goodwill Northern Illinois announced the opening of several Volunteer Income Tax Assistance sites for this tax season, which will be active from now until April 13. Income restrictions apply at certain sites. All tax preparation services are free. For more information on these VITA sites, go to goodwillni.org.
• CITY COUNCIL Continued from page A1
Chronopoulos said she was hoping to see some sort of timeline on the creation of the TIF districts posted on the city’s website. “How can we post information on how the project will develop over the next several months?” Chronopoulos asked. Biernacki replied that he will have a better idea on a timeline in a month or so. In an interview after the meeting, Chronopoulos said she was concerned about access to the information. “I was asking ... what exactly are they going to do to keep everybody informed in detail as the TIF project develops,” Chronopoulos said. “Because so many people are interested, they can’t always make the meetings. But they would like to be able to go on the website and see how it progresses.” The council also considered creating TIF districts in the areas along West Lincoln Highway between the river and the western edge of the city, as well as Greek Row. Those areas’ qualifications were found to be weak, and as such, they will be not be studied by PGAV Architects.
President to endorse Senate process at Las Vegas event today • IMMIGRATION Continued from page A1 Obama received 71 percent of the Latino vote in November compared with 27 percent for Republican Mitt Romney. The president will endorse the Senate process during an event in Las Vegas today, administration officials said. He will outline a similar vision for overhauling the nation’s immigration laws, drawing on the immigration “blueprint” he first released in 2011. The blueprint focuses on four key areas: A pathway to citizenship for the 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S., improved border security, an overhaul of the legal immigration system and making it easier for businesses to verify the legal status of workers. Seeking to ramp up pres-
sure on lawmakers, the White House has prepared formal immigration legislation that it could sent to Capitol Hill should the Senate process stall, administration officials said. The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to discuss internal strategy. Like the president’s blueprint, the Senate proposals also call for a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants already here. But lawmakers want the creation of that pathway to be contingent upon securing the border and better tracking of people in the U.S. on visas. The Senate’s five-page framework also calls for overhauling the legal immigration system, including awarding green cards to immigrants who obtain certain advanced degrees from American universities, creating an effective high-tech
employment verification system to ensure that employers do not hire illegal immigrants in the future and allowing more low-skill and agricultural workers. In a sign of the challenges ahead, the proposals immediately got a cool reaction from Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. “This effort is too important to be written in a back room and sent to the floor with a take-it-or-leave it approach,” McConnell said. “It needs to be done on a bipartisan basis and include ideas from both sides of the aisle.” Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., said on the Senate floor, “No one should expect members of the Senate are just going to rubber-stamp what a group has met and decided.” Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, said he was concerned about the proposed path to citizenship.
“To allow those who came here illegally to be placed on such a path is both inconsistent with rule of law and profoundly unfair to the millions of legal immigrants who waited years, if not decades, to come to America legally,” said Cruz. A year after Border Patrol apprehensions of illegal border crossers plunged to the lowest levels in nearly 40 years agents have seen a slight increase in arrests, according to Border Patrol arrest data obtained by The Associated Press. In the budget year that ended in September, Border Patrol agents arrested 356,873 would-be border crossers along the Mexican border. In fiscal year 2011, agents along the Mexican border made 327,577 arrests. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., applauded the framework and said,

Sycamore man puts his twist on spice blends By CURTIS CLEGG
SYCAMORE – Jim Hancock has always loved to cook, and has made his own seasoning mixes for years. But in the fall of 2011, he decided to try something new with his garden produce. “Every year I grow more peppers than I can use, so I dry them and grind them up,” he said. “Two years ago I was smoking pork roast and I thought I would throw the peppers on the smoker to see what happened.” The flavor of the smoked peppers was too strong for Hancock’s taste, so he experimented with mixing the chopped peppers with onion, parsley, paprika and other fresh spices from his garden. He eventually found just the right blend to suit his palate. “My neighbors tried it and went nuts, and I ended up making 50 bottles between Thanksgiving and
Twisted Taste seasonings are available from some retailers and online at www. twisted-taste.com. For more information and recipe ideas, visit the website or find Twisted Taste on Facebook.
New Year’s,” Hancock said. A new business, Twisted Taste, was born. As his other career, buying and selling printing presses, slowed, Hancock began to develop his new
business. He set out to find a commercial processor that could duplicate and package his blend of seasonings without using fillers or oils. Most commercially available spice blends use oil, usually soybean
oil, to hold the different spices together. The oil causes clumps, so a de-clumping agent is added to the mix. Without those oils, bottles of Twisted Taste seasonings require an occasional shake to mix the ingredients, but for Hancock that is a small price to pay. “I said no [to using oils]. It’s got to be pure ingredients,” he said. “All of my spices are low in sodium and high in ingredients.” Partnering with a commercial seasoning processor in suburban Chicago, Hancock developed four seasonings for his first production run and he is hoping to introduce
new products this year. Within 30 days of starting production, Twisted Taste mixes were available at 13 stores in two states, he said. Brown’s County Market in Sycamore is one of the stores that carries Twisted Taste seasonings. “He did a demo for us and that went over really well,” owner Dan Brown said. Brown also has used some of Twisted Taste’s seasonings on meats sold in the store’s fresh meat counter. “I was glad to see he got it up and going because we are moving [selling] it,” Brown said. “We are getting repeat customers now.” The most popular Twisted Taste seasoning is “Butt Rub,” a red-meat rub based on Hancock’s mother’s Kansas City dry rub recipe and developed over the past 20 years. He also produces “FaGhettaGarlic” for Italian dishes, the pepper-based “Red Meat” for pork and beef, and “Smokin’,” a pepper blend with a mild smoky flavor.

Resource Bank held a ceremonial ground-breaking last month at the Indian Oaks Country Club for the construction of its new Shabbona branch. With wind chills in the single digits, the group of residents, business owners, bank officers, and directors gathered indoors to celebrate the new branch construction at 601 E. Comanche Ave. Richard Katz, president of Resource Bank, expressed his commitment to
the community, and state Rep. Robert Pritchard commended the investment being made by Resource Bank. The construction is being conducted by Shepard Construction of DeKalb, and the building is designed by David Hagney of Hagney Architects LLC of Rockford. The blueprints of the new bank will incorporate the historic Quilhot one room schoolhouse (built in 1856), which has been owned by the Mullins family of
Shabbona. The schoolhouse will be restored and integrated with the bank to provide a public space for use by the entire community. A temporary office is servicing the Shabbona area at 308 E. Comanche Ave., and in early February, a temporary bank facility, complete with drive-through teller, will be open during the construction. For more information, visit www. ResourceBank.com.

Workers chase American Dream, too
collective dream. They were going to get there together. Today, not so much. Today, the image of the entrepreneur is of a lone individual who is going to do it on his or her own. When did America become a set of individuals, diligently working for their own profit, possibly shared with their families but stingily kept from their employees who, of course, are “only workers” who can be fired at will with no regrets or conscience? When did we stop respecting each others contributions to the common good? Labor as an important factor of production along with finance and management? When did we stop being a community? Mr. Olson, the next time you write a column about business and commerce, remember that businesses involve employees as well as employers. Please, recognize that it is honorable to be a good worker and a loyal employee. That it’s possible to have dreams about your future even if you aren’t out there “risking it all” for profit but, rather, are working hard and buying insurance to make sure you don’t lose it all for your family if you don’t “make it big.”
To the Editor: “It’s those entrepreneurs who are chasing the American Dream by running their own small businesses that we’ve got to look out for. They’re the ones taking the risk and hoping for the reward” wrote Eric Olson in his Editor’s Note of Jan. 26. We agree entrepreneurs are chasing the American Dream. But what about their employees? Aren’t they chasing the American Dream, too? We grew up in southeastern Michigan in the 1950s. In those days, “The American Dream” applied to workers as well as employers. Men and women who went to work – reliably, proudly, and productively – trying to build a better life for them and their families. A house with a yard; a new car every three years; the money to go out to dinner once in a while; paid vacation time to enjoy the parks, beaches, and byways of their beloved country. This was a time when everyone remembered the years of World War II, when the country pulled together, as a group, to defeat a frightening common enemy. Some of our families and neighbors were members of unions; some were not. In either case there was a common identity, a common Robert & Patricia Suchner DeKalb bond. The American Dream was a
Republican annihilation is not likely
These days, our political parties are defined by their presidents. Their policies and their programs tend to become their respective parties’ orthodoxies. And the perceived success or failure of those policies and programs tends to determine how the parties’ candidates, even those who don’t support many of them, do at the polls. This has been especially true in the past two decades, in which fewer Americans have been splitting their tickets or changing their minds from election to election than was the case from the 1950s to the 1980s. For years, white Southerners voted Republican or for a third-party candidate in presidential elections and Democratic in congressional and state contests. Now they’re solidly Republican. For most of the 20th century, New York was a target state in elections, and Vermont was the most Republican state in the nation. Now they’re both hugely Democratic. These are things to keep in mind as the political air swirls with talk of Barack Obama as a Democratic Ronald Reagan annihilating the Republican Party. Neither of our two political parties is going to be annihilated. Both have suffered far worse defeats than Mitt Romney and the Republicans suffered in 2012. Both have figured out how to adapt and win over voters who used to vote against them – or at least to position themselves to win when the other side’s president is seen to have massively failed. The 2008-2012 Obama campaign – it never really stopped – did an excellent job of turning out just enough voters to win 332 electoral votes in 2012. But Obama carried just 26 states to Romney’s 24, which is relevant when you look at future senatorial elections.
VIEWS Michael Barone As for House elections, Obama carried only 207 congressional districts to Romney’s 228. That’s partly because Republicans had the advantage in redistricting after the 2010 census. But it’s also because Democratic core constituencies -- blacks, Hispanics and gentry liberals – tend to be clustered geographically in big metropolitan areas. Obama’s large margins there helped him carry many electoral votes, but not so many congressional districts. And Obama’s in-your-face liberalism, so apparent in last week’s inaugural speech, antagonized some groups in a way that may hurt Democrats for some time to come. The Obamacare contraception mandate helped Romney carry 59 percent of white Catholics -– probably their highest Republican percentage ever -– and 79 percent of white evangelical Protestants. Those groups total 44 percent of the electorate. That’s a counterbalance to Obama’s 93 percent among blacks and 71 percent among Hispanics. They were just 23 percent of the electorate, and though Hispanics will be a growing percentage, blacks probably won’t. It’s going to be hard for other Democrats to replicate Obama’s coalition in 2014 and 2016. It’s not clear whether other Democrats can generate the turnout among blacks, Hispanics and young voters that he did. And it’s pretty clear that under the Obama aegis, Democrats cannot make the kind of gains in congressional races that they did in 2006 and 2008. Back then, Democratic strategists Rahm Emanuel and Charles Schumer fielded
moderate-sounding candidates in Republican-leaning territory who were able to win because of discontent with the performance of George W. Bush. When his job approval fell below 40 percent, Republican candidates almost everywhere were hurt. Democrats in 2014 will have to run as members of the party led by Obama. That could be a hard sell in the 24 states and 228 congressional districts that he failed to carry in November. Take Georgia, where Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss announced Friday he will not run for re-election next year. Obama got 45 percent of the vote there, his second-highest percentage in a state he didn’t carry. (The highest was in North Carolina.) Examination of the 2012 returns in Georgia’s 159 counties and in its 14 congressional districts reveals unusually high turnout among black voters -– considerably higher than in the 2010 off-year election or any election before 2008. Georgia Democrats have high hopes of winning Chambliss’ Senate seat, but it looks like an uphill climb. George W. Bush’s 51 percent re-election, with 11.5 million more votes than four years before, got his strategist Karl Rove musing about a permanent Republican majority. That didn’t happen. Now Obama’s 51 percent re-election, with 3.6 million fewer votes than four years before, has Democrats talking about annihilating the Republican Party. That’s not likely to happen, either.

Phone users who have opened their monthly bills only to find a string of additional charges know how pervasive “cramming” has become. The practice – in which a third party will add charges to phone bills for services that were never requested, or were part of ultra-fine print – is a multibillion-dollar industry. Reports indicate telephone companies place at least 300 million third-party charges on customers’ bills every year. It can be tough to catch for a number of reasons. Foremost is that there is no single common “cram.” It can be for long-distance service or club memberships or for daily text messages of jokes or horoscopes. It can also be weeks before charges are noticed, if at all. Monthly utility bills tend to be of a nature that they are received and paid without much scrutiny. Although it had its origins among landline telephones, it has adapted and moved as more people abandon their home phones for cell phones. Reports of online cramming are also on the rise. On Jan. 1, Illinois became only the second state in the nation to ban cramming over landlines. House Bill 5211 might never have caught the attention of lawmakers were it not for the guidance of Attorney General Lisa Madigan and her office. But legislation cannot solve the problem itself. Consumers should take responsibility for knowing the tell-tale fingerprints crammers often leave behind. For starters, pay attention to your bill each month. According to the Federal Trade Commission, there are some generic-sounding phrases that should raise red flags: Things like “member fee” or “activation” warrant further explanation. Also, keep watch for strange area codes, especially 011 or 500 or 900, which denote a number that typically has a per-minute charge involved. Look closely at charges under the “miscellaneous” or “third-party charges” section of your telephone bill. Be willing to ask questions. House Bill 5211 is an example of consumer protection that is needed in a world in which technology and its associated con games grow with exponential speed. It is just as important, though, that consumers be aware of the schemes and scams that are out there and know how to avoid being taken.
8 ANOTHER VIEW
Another danger for military women Now that Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is ending the official military ban on women in combat, perhaps the services will also move to more effectively address the painful issue of sexual assault within the ranks. Panetta’s decision opens thousands of additional jobs to military women and gives them more opportunities for promotion. It cancels a 1994 Pentagon regulation that kept women out of front-line infantry, artillery and other combat roles, although in reality about 20,000 women have found themselves in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan anyway; 800 have been injured and 130 have died. The decision opens the door for the individual services to put the changes into effect. The issue of sexual abuse of both military women and men, often by their superior officers, was highlighted at a recent House Armed Services Committee meeting. The committee heard testimony on the situation at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas, where 59 victims, three of them men, have come forward to accuse dozens of drill sergeants and training instructors of sexual harassment and assault, rape and other offenses. So far, 32 sergeants and instructors have been disciplined for everything from rape to unprofessional relationships. At the hearing, military leaders argued that the Air Force’s Lackland investigation has led to some corrective actions. More female Military Training Instructors have been included in basic training; four instructors, at least one of them a woman, are assigned to two squadrons of recruits. Rape and assault of enlisted women and men during basic training are almost common, according to a recent Washington Post report. The Defense Department has said that sexual assaults have been reported by as many as 1 in 3 female service members. The DOD estimated that in 2010, the latest year for which statistics are available, about 19,000 assaults occurred, of which only 3,200 were reported and 191 resulted in court-martial convictions. Military women fail to report assaults for many reasons, including fear of retaliation and damage to their careers, inaction by superiors, who in some instances are their rapists, and other difficulties. The No. 1 reason for the firing of military commanders in the past eight years is sexual misconduct, 78 of 255 dismissals since 2005, according to military statistics compiled by the Associated Press. Of the 18 generals and admirals fired in recent years, 10 were kicked out for sexual offenses.

LITTLE TEN CONFERENCE TOURNAMENT
VIEWS Tom Musick
Rose eyes return one shot at a time
49ers respond to president’s concerns
EW ORLEANS – Aldon Smith was among several players preparing for the Super Bowl who doesn’t see anything wrong with their kids playing football. Responding to President Obama’s comments questioning the safety of the game, the 49ers’ All-Pro linebacker and a few teammates said they would allow their sons to follow them into the sport. “It’s not like we signed up and thought we were going to play tennis,” Smith said Monday. “It’s a physical game. Everybody plays hard. And guys get hit sometimes. That’s what we all know coming into the game. We all signed up for it. “We came out to play football.” Guard Alex Boone was adamant that football has to be “physical,” while adding he believed the league and the players association were attempting to make the game safer. “If he wants to play, he can play. He can do whatever he wants,” Boone said of having a son pursue football. While acknowledging he’s a football fan, Obama told The New Republic he’s concerned about the violent nature of the sport – enough so that if he had a son, he’d think twice about allowing him to play. “I think that those of us who love the sport are going to have to wrestle with the fact that it will probably change gradually to try to reduce some of the violence,” he said. – Wire report

But Govig doesn’t think that’s the case. “No, we’re not looking ahead,” Govig said. “We’ve got to beat Newark first before playing anybody else.” Hiawatha 51, LaMoille-Ohio 49: Alex Flores knew he would have to have a big game in Hiawatha’s first-round LTC tournament game against LaMoille-Ohio on Monday after finding out two of his team’s starters wouldn’t play. But the sophomore, who scored 24 points in the 51-49 win, didn’t know quite how big he’d be for the Hawks. “I knew I was going to have to have a big game for this team, and thankfully I did,” Flores said. “We were missing a couple of key players, and I knew that we would give them a game, but nothing like this.” With Pancho Garcia at a club soccer game, Mike Mercado out sick and three other Hawks unable to play, only two players sat on coach Danny Klein’s bench, both of whom were called up from junior varsity. Behind 16 points from Flores, the Hawks (5-16) went into halftime with a 22-19 lead. “He played a [heck] of a game tonight,” Klein said of Flores, who has gone up and down from junior varsity to varsity all season.

About three-fourths of Rose’s red warm-up T-shirt is drenched with sweat. The perspiration darkens his shirt in a U-shape that dips to the middle of his stomach and his lower back. As Rose practices jump shot after jump shot, he follows a specific pattern. He starts by Derrick Rose taking several shots from the right baseline, then the right elbow, then the top of the key, then the Inside left elbow, and finally the left Jimmy baseline.

The 60-minute countdown clock has yet to start, and most of the stadium’s 21,000plus seats remain empty. A song by Train – “Hey, Soul Sister” – blares from speakers above. Rose is hard at work. Dribble, step, jump, release: Swish. Dribble, step, jump, release: Miss. Dribble, step, jump, release: Swish. On and on it goes. No brace covers Rose’s left knee, which has been the most talked-about body part in the city since he tore his ACL and crumpled to the court April 28 in the Bulls’ playoff opener. Today, Rose shows no sign of a limp, but he works at about half-speed and does not cut side to side. No one has put a date on when Rose will return. Whatever the date, it is getting closer. Maybe Rose will be back when the Bulls return home Feb. 11 after a six-game road trip. Maybe he’ll be back Feb. 19 after the All-Star break. Or maybe the Bulls will play it safe and hold Rose out until March, which still would give him a few weeks to get ready for the playoffs. Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau is asked about the subject all the time, including Monday.

Indian Creek’s Jaron Todd shoots over a pair of Leland-Earlville defenders during the first quarter of a Little Ten Conference tournament quarterfinal game Monday night in Somonauk.
Indian Creek cruises in quarterﬁnal triumph By ANTHONY ZILIS email@example.com SOMONAUK – Garrison Govig shook his head and smiled at the end of the third quarter of Indian Creek’s 65-40 win over Leland-Earlville on Monday in a quarterfinal of the Little Ten Conference tournament. The 6-foot-9 center hasn’t made a 3 all season, but he regretted passing up a wide-open shot from beyond the arc at the end of the quarter. “I should have taken that,” the junior said as he jogged off the court. The idea that Govig could have drained a 3 didn’t seem that far-fetched at that point. Govig was dominant during the third quarter, when he scored 10 consecutive Indian Creek (12-8) points in the last four minutes, though all of those buckets came within a yard of the basket. Govig left the outside shooting to his teammates, who were unstoppable early. Jaron Todd drained two 3s in the first quarter, and five different players scored as the Timberwolves jumped out to a 22-5 lead. Kyle Lieving scored 11 first-half points, and Indian Creek went into halftime with a 38-12 lead. “We were rotating well, we weren’t giving them easy baskets, and when you get hot from the outside, that always makes things a little bit easier,” coach Joe Piekarz said. “I thought the tone we set tonight was what sparked us tonight.”

SUPER BOWL XLVII: RAVENS VS. 49ERS, 5 P.M. SUNDAY, CBS
Who are these Super Bowl QBs? By BARRY WILNER The Associated Press NEW ORLEANS – No Tom Brady. No Aaron Rodgers. No Ben Roethlisberger. Not a Manning in sight. Super Bowl has a pair of fresh faces at quarterback, bona fide nobodies as far as the NFL title game goes. But one will leave New Orleans as football’s newest star. For Colin Kaepernick and Joe Flacco, this is new territory. And, of course, exactly where they want to be. Flacco, the only quarterback to win a playoff game in each of his first five NFL seasons, will lead the AFC champion Baltimore Ravens into Sunday’s matchup against the NFC-winning San Francisco 49ers and Kaepernick, a
backup for most of his two seasons. It’s the first time in more than a decade that the big game doesn’t feature one of the big five household names in the glamour position. You can’t get much fresher than quarterbacks who never have gotten this far before. “At the start of the season, I was just hoping to get on the field some Colin way, somehow,” said Kaepernick Kaepernick, the backup for Alex Smith, who took the 49ers to the conference final last season. He got that chance after Smith suffered a concussion Nov. 11, and hasn’t seen the bench since. Win this one and he’ll have a piece
of history, joining a heady quarterback club that includes Hall of Famers Joe Montana and Steve Young, who guided the 49ers to five NFL titles – a victory every time they played. No. 6 would tie the team with Roethlisberger’s Pittsburgh Steelers – a record for most Super Bowl wins. A second-round draft pick in 2011 out of Nevada – not exactly Alabama – Kaepernick has the shortest pro résumé of any Super Bowl quarterback. It’s impressive, nonetheless. His legs (181 yards rushing against Green Bay, AP photo a record for the position) and his arm (105.9 passer rating in the postseason) Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco records a are the main reasons San Francisco is send-off rally for the team Monday in Baltimore. The Ravens arrived in New Orleans in its first NFL title game in 18 years.

8SPORTS SHORTS Bears hire Harris as quality control coach
LAKE FOREST – The Bears hired former safety Chris Harris as a defensive quality control coach. Harris recently retired after eight seasons that included two stints with the Bears (2005-06 and 2010-11). He also played for Carolina, Detroit and Jacksonville, where he appeared in five games last season and worked with new Bears defensive coordinator Mel Tucker. He had 16 interceptions and 13 forced fumbles in his career. Besides hiring Harris on Monday, the Bears announced they were bringing in former Tampa Bay special teams coordinator Dwayne Stukes as assistant special teams coach and Sean Desai as a defensive quality control coach.
NCAA hopes sports science center helps with safety INDIANAPOLIS – The NCAA says it is committed to ensuring the safety of all college athletes and plans to open a national sports science institute to make playing sports safer. The comments came in a statement emailed to The Associated Press on Monday night, the day after President Barack Obama acknowledged that if he had a son, he would have to think about letting him play football. The NCAA did not specifically address Obama’s comments about football, choosing instead to address the broader issue. “Student-athlete safety is one of our foundational principles,” the statement read. “Throughout its history, the association and its member institutions and conferences have specifically addressed the prevention of student-athlete injuries through a combination of playing rules, equipment requirements, medical best practices and policies.”
Ex-49er charged in former boyfriend’s beating
SAN FRANCISCO – Former San Francisco 49er Kwame Harris has been charged with felony domestic violence and assault charges from an August beating involving a former boyfriend, a prosecutor and defense lawyer said. After a pretrial hearing in the case Monday, a San Mateo County judge set a late April trial date for Harris, an offensive tackle who played five seasons with the 49ers and one season with the Oakland Raiders, Assistant District Attorney Al Serrato said. The charges stem from an altercation outside a Menlo Park restaurant between Harris, 30, and Dimitri Geier, who suffered several facial fractures that required surgery, Serrato said. – Wire reports

PGA TOUR: FARMERS INSURANCE OPEN
Woods’ win 8th at Torrey Pines By DOUG FERGUSON The Associated Press SAN DIEGO – Tiger Woods was so good for so long at Torrey Pines that it didn’t matter how bad it looked at the end. In a finish that was fitting for such a long and exasperating week, Woods built an eight-shot lead with five holes to play Monday until he lost patience with the slow play and started losing shots that only determined the margin of victory. Despite two bogeys and a double bogey in the final hour, he closed with an even-par 72 for a four-shot victory in the Farmers Insurance Open. “I’m excited the way I played all week,” Woods said. “I hit the ball well – pretty much did everything well and built myself a nice little cushion. I had some mistakes at the end, but all my good play before that allowed me to afford those mistakes.” He won for the 75th time in his PGA Tour career, seven behind the record held by Sam Snead. Woods won this tournament for the seventh time, and he set a PGA Tour record by winning at Torrey Pines for the eighth time, including his 2008 U.S. Open. Woods also has won seven times at Bay Hill and at Firestone. Torrey Pines is a public course that he has turned into his private domain.
“I don’t know if anybody would have beaten him this week,” said Nick Watney, who got within five shots of Woods when the tournament still was undecided until making three bogeys on his next five holes. “He’s definitely on his game.” It was the 23rd time Woods has won by at least four shots on the PGA Tour. Defending champion Brandt Snedeker (69) and Josh Teater (69) tied for the second. Watney had a 71 and tied for fourth with Jimmy Walker. It was a strong statement for Woods, who was coming off a missed cut last week in Abu Dhabi. This was the second time in his career that Woods won in his next tournament after missing the cut, but this was the first time it happened the following week. Abu Dhabi is now a distant memory. The question now is what kind of season is shaping up for Woods. “I think he wanted to send a message,” said Hunter Mahan, who shares a swing coach with Woods. “I think deep down he did. You play some games to try to motivate yourself. There’s been so much talk about Rory (McIlroy). Rory is now with Nike. That would be my guess.” The last time Woods won at Torrey Pines also was on a AP photo Monday, when he beat Rocco Mediate in a playoff to cap- Tiger Woods poses with the trophy after winning the Farmers Insurance ture the U.S. Open for his 14th Open on Monday at the Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego.

Robinson sparked the run with a pair of 3-pointers then had a steal to set up a dunk by Butler to put the Bulls up 68-55. Robinson wasn’t done. He made a pull-up 3, then had a steal and layup to give the Bulls a 75-61 lead. Robinson stared down Ramon Sessions after the layup. Charlotte got it within six late in the fourth quarter, but Carlos Boozer put the game away with a dunk over Bismack Biyombo with 1:25 left.

Rose’s return nears, but undetermined • MUSICK
Continued from page B1 “He’s coming along,” Thibodeau said. “He still has a ways to go.” As always, Thibodeau is tight-lipped about his MVP point guard. He acknowledges that Rose is taking part in certain aspects of practice. He offers little else in the way of details. Asked whether Rose remains limited by doctors in any way, Thibodeau shuts down. “He’s doing fine.” Awkward silence. A walk through the stadium’s tunnels and to the court provides more clarity. Rose continues to shoot, seemingly oblivious to anything other than the ball and the basket. More fans file into the building. Pop songs continue to blast through the speakers. “We are not afraid …” “Oh, sometimes, I get a good a feeling …”
“I’m looking to the sky to save me …” A few teammates such as Nate Robinson, Taj Gibson and Joakim Noah joined Rose to practice jump shots, but they’re gone by now. They need to stay fresh for the game. But Rose is determined to push his muscles to their limits. It’s anyone’s guess as to how many shots he has taken by now. Hundreds, easily. Thousands, maybe. Rose is getting tired, too. He hits the front end of the rim on a jump shot from the key. He hits the front end again. Finally, he forces one through the net. That shot seems like a good stopping point. Rose has other ideas. He switches to his left hand and hits a mid-range shot. He fires up a few lefty 3s, as well, although most of those attempts clank off of the rim. Rose’s upper body is
strong, all right. As for his left knee, we won’t know for sure until he attacks the basket during a game. The next song that fills the stadium is by Mumford & Sons, a folk band from England. It’s called “I Will Wait.” Maybe you’ve heard it. “And I will wait, I will wait, for you…” “And I will wait, I will wait, for you…” Rose has worked his way to the right baseline. He once again is shooting with his right hand. Swish. Swish. Swish. Rose turns his head and extends his arms toward a ball boy. His lips are easy to read. “One more.” Swish.

CHICAGO – A return to the Bulls’ second unit did little to slow Jimmy Butler’s momentum Monday. Butler, 23, came off of the bench to lead the Bulls with 19 points and six rebounds in a 93-85 win against the Charlotte Bobcats. Butler’s 19 points set a career high and marked the third time in the past six games that he has either set or tied his career high in points. This time, Butler’s success came as a backup to veteran starter Luol Deng. Butler had started the previous five games in place of Deng, who was out of the lineup beJimmy Butler cause of an injured hamstring. Butler said his recent success boosted his confidence. “It’s growing as we have more success as a team,” Butler said. “I feel like this team, we’re always together in every aspect. When I score 19, it’s not just me. My teammates are helping me.” The Bulls bench could help the team as the season’s second half approaches, Butler said. Fellow second-unit player Nate Robinson scored 15 points against the Bobcats, while Taj Gibson scored seven points to go with seven rebounds and Marco Belinelli added four points. “I like this bench,” Butler said. “We bring a lot of things to the table: Defense, shooting, attacking the basket, rebounding. There’s a lot of key pieces.” Reaching out: Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said he reached out to Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo after learning that Rondo had torn his ACL and was out for the season. “It’s tough,” Thibodeau, who served as a Celtics assistant coach from 2007 to 2010. “You hate to see anyone go down with an injury. I had the opportunity to coach him. He’s a great kid. He’s really grown. He’s become, in my eyes, a superstar in this league. “He’s a tough kid. He’ll overcome it and put the work in. But you hate to see it.” Bulls bits: The Bulls blocked a season-high 14 shots against the Bobcats. Joakim Noah led the team with five blocked shots, while 5-foot-9 guard Nate Robinson added three blocks. … The Bulls improved to 18-4 this season when holding opponents to less than 90 points.

MEN’S BASKETBALL AP TOP 25 POLL
For 1st time since the Fab Five, Michigan No. 1 By NOAH TRISTER The Associated Press
ANN ARBOR, Mich. – John Beilein acknowledged Monday afternoon that he had quite a few text messages on his phone. The Michigan coach just hadn’t checked them yet. “I’ve been absorbed in Northwestern tape,” Beilein said. The Wolverines are No. 1 in The Associated Press’ college basketball poll for the first time since their Fab Five days 20 years ago, but Beilein is determined not to get carried away with all this recognition. Michigan took over the top spot after a 74-60 victory at Illinois on Sunday night. Next up on the schedule is Northwestern, and there’s no reason for the routine to change.
“Our goal at Michigan is to be No. 1 in the Big Ten. When you achieve that honor, you will have a chance at the national championship,” Beilein said. “All through the year polls will spark great interest among college basketball fans everywhere and that is always good. Our coaches and players, however, will remain focused on our goals of improving daily and competing for the championship within our conference.” Michigan is doing pretty well in that regard, too. The Wolverines tied for the Big Ten title last year, and they’re deadlocked atop the league right now with No. 3 Indiana. The Hoosiers play host to Michigan on Saturday night. Michigan received 51 first-place votes from the 65-member national media panel Monday. Kansas moved
up one spot to No. 2 and had 13 first-place votes. They are the only one-loss teams in the poll. Indiana, Florida, which drew the other firstplace vote, and Duke complete the top five. Duke, which was No. 1 last week, dropped after being routed 90-63 by Miami in the third-worst defeat by a top-ranked team. It was the secJohn Beilein ond straight week the No. 1 team lost. The Wolverines advanced from No. 2 to become No. 1 for the fourth time. They were at the top for 10 weeks in 1964-65, eight weeks in 197677 and three weeks at the start of 199293, the Fab Five’s second and final season together.
That season, Chris Webber, Juwan Howard, Jalen Rose, Jimmy King and Ray Jackson made it to the national championship game for the second straight year. Jackson now lives in Texas, but he roots for the Wolverines from afar. “I’m excited about it and I’m very proud of those boys,” Jackson said in a telephone interview Monday. “I’m really excited and pleased about what Coach Beilein has done to turn the program around.” Michigan fell on hard times after the Fab Five moved on, in part because of NCAA sanctions related to that era. Beilein took over in 2007 and made the NCAA tournament in his second season with the Wolverines, but the program’s rise didn’t really begin until two years ago. In January 2011, Michigan was 1-6
SUPER BOWL XLVII
Mayor: City deserves spotlight By BRETT MARTEL The Associated Press
NEW ORLEANS – A 20-story-high mural of the Lombardi Trophy, affixed to the glass exterior of bustling hotel that once was a shattered symbol of Hurricane Katrina’s devastation, rises like a beacon above the expansive white roof of the Superdome. The Super Bowl is back in the Big Easy, finally, after 11 years, giving New Orleans a spotlight of global proportion to showcase how far it has come since Katrina left the city on its knees and under water in August of 2005. “The story is much, much bigger than the Super Bowl,” Mayor Mitch Landrieu said Monday afternoon. “This is a story about the resurrection and redemption of a great American city. “The Super Bowl gives us
an opportunity to reflect on where we’ve been and where we’re going.” From 1970 to 2002, New Orleans was a regular host of the Super Bowl and hopes to become one again. On Sunday, when the Baltimore Ravens meet the San Francisco 49ers in the SuMitch Landrieu perdome, the Crescent City will host the NFL’s marquee game for the 10th time, tying Miami for the most of any city. If all goes well, it hopes to get back in the rotation. Jay Cicero, president of the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation, said his group will ask the NFL for permission to put together a bid for the 2018 Super Bowl, coinciding with the city’s celebration of its 300th anniversary.
It is that history, which produced a colorful culture driven by a mix of European, Caribbean and African influences, that makes New Orleans such an attractive Super Bowl city, noted political consultant James Carville said. “This is not just a city. This is a culture,” said Carville, who lives in New Orleans and serves as the co-chairman of the Super Bowl host committee with his wife and fellow political pundit, Mary Matalin. “We have our own food, our own music, our own social structure, our own architecture, our own body of literature. By God, we have our own funerals.” Carville pointed out that Dallas spent about $38 million to host a Super Bowl two seasons ago, that Indianapolis spent about $25 million a year ago, and that New Orleans spent about $13 million.
Flacco 8-4 in playoffs, with 6 road wins • SUPER BOWL
Continued from page B1
“Anybody that is out there on the football field, you want to see them produce and get results,” left tackle Joe Staley said. “With Colin, his first couple of starts, you did not know what to expect because we had not seen him out there as a starting quarterback. He did amazing and he has all season, as well as the playoffs. I think it was one of those things where we saw him in practice and we just wanted to see how he was going to handle the situation in the games. He has done that.” Still, he’s new to this en-
vironment and that hardly seems to faze Kaepernick. “One thing I’ve always said about him from the start is he comes off as a guy that has a lot of confidence,” said center Jonathan Goodwin, who won a Super Bowl snapping for Drew Brees and the Saints three years ago. “I’m not just saying that. You can feel it by the way he acts and talks.” Flacco has that air of certainty, too, but at least it’s built on a more substantial foundation, including an 8-4 mark in the playoffs, with six road wins – the most for any quarterback, Montana and Young included. That goes for Baltimore’s John Unitas, too.
Nobody is comparing Flacco to them just yet, except for the self-belief he brings to the job. “There are a lot of different ways to lead, and the bottom line is it’s about motivating your players to get the best out of them, and having belief that you can go do it in any situation,” Flacco said last week. “You’ve got to do it your own way. And I think, naturally, as you get more comfortable with people and people understand you more, and you become more confident in them, and they become more confident in you, you become more vocal as time goes on.” And you become a Super Bowl quarterback.

in Big Ten play when the Wolverines shocked Michigan State in East Lansing. Michigan took off after that victory, reaching the NCAA tournament that year. The following season, the Wolverines won a share of their first conference title since 1986. Now the Wolverines are national title contenders thanks to guards Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway and a talented group of freshmen – although the toughest tests are still to come. After hosting Northwestern on Wednesday night, Michigan faces a four-game stretch against Indiana, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Michigan State. “What I’d like to see is what we’ve already seen,” Beilein said. “That they’re on a mission to be the best that this team can possibly be.”

Quimby hits key free throws • LTC TOURNEY
Continued from page B1 Behind eight fourth-quarter points from Ed Canchola, the Hawks took a 49-40 lead with 2:30 remaining. But the Lions came back to make it a 50-49 game with 10 seconds left. Hiawatha forward Dakotah Quimby made a free throw with 4.5 seconds remaining to give the Hawks a two-point lead, and Lamoille-Ohio forward Brandon Morris missed a layup as time expired. Four Hawks played the entire game, but they were able to close out the win for the right to play top-seeded H-BR today in the quarterfinals. “From a team standpoint, I thought this was our best overall win just because I played so few people,” Klein said.

Man with a past hesitates to reveal in present
Dear Abby: I am a 29-yearold man with a criminal record. I got involved in some fraud and embezzlement rings when I was in my early 20s, and served nine months before being released on parole. Since then I have moved in with my mother, found a job, and I’m trying to be the man I know I’m capable of being. I have reached the point where I’d like to begin dating again. The problem is, I don’t know when the time is right to bring up my past. If I wait too long, my name is mud for not saying anything sooner. I want to do the right thing so I can stay on the right path. Can you help me? – A Better Man in New York Dear Better Man: I agree
DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips that the chapter of your life in which you were in prison is not something you should reveal on a first date. But do raise the subject around the fourth date, because by then the woman will have had a chance to get to know you. When you bring it up, make it clear that you didn’t go to jail for a violent crime and you’re not on any offenders’ list. If she likes you, she’ll hear you out and understand that you don’t plan to repeat your past mistakes. Men who have served their time can go on to lead successful lives, and tell her that you plan to
be one of them. Dear Abby: I am blessed with two beautiful daughters. One is 13; the other is 4 months old. For 11 years my 13-year-old, “Lily,” was my life. I had dated, but they were all Mr. Wrongs. Two years ago I finally met a wonderful man, “Kevin.” He is good to me, and he and Lily get along to a point, but he’s shy and doesn’t talk much. Kevin moved in with us a few months after I found out I was pregnant. I try to include Lily in our new family, but she feels left out. She stays in her room and doesn’t have much to do with Kevin. She wouldn’t go with me to the baby’s doctor appointments and pretty much ignores her new baby sister. I have told myself
she’ll come around, but it hasn’t happened. What can I do to assure Lily that I love her as much as I always have? I want our family to be happy. I hope to eventually marry Kevin. Lily’s dad isn’t very involved in her life. Every time I try to include Lily, she gets mad and says she doesn’t want to do the family functions. Help, please. – West Virginia Mom Dear Mom: Thirteen can be a difficult age and your work is cut out for you. You will have to be more proactive in order to make this arrangement function more like a family. Kevin may be shy, but he should be encouraged to make more of an effort to get to know Lily. As the adult, it is his job to break the ice and find something in common
with her. Also, Lily should not be allowed to hide out in her room and not participate in any activities. If you permit the status quo to continue, at some point she will start looking for a place where she feels she “belongs” in a situation beyond your control or supervision. If you are out of ideas on how to get your daughter to cooperate, then involve a family therapist to help you through the roadblocks.

Practicing yoga can be an antidote to stress
Dear Dr. K: I know yoga has a lot of physical benefits, but is it true yoga can help reduce stress as well? Dear Reader: Many people initially come to yoga to become physically fit, but they soon discover the psychological benefits. In addition to being great exercise, yoga is one of the best antidotes to the stress of modern living. I won’t go as far as saying it is a fountain of youth, but I will say it can be a fountain of calm and equanimity. The first person I ever knew who regularly practiced yoga was an intense and ambitious young doctor. Any conversation with him was short and difficult; he completed your sentences for you and interrupted you at
ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff will. He was very smart and had a lot of valuable things to say, but that didn’t mean you looked forward to talking with him. Then something odd happened. I had a conversation with him in which he didn’t interrupt me. A few weeks later, I had another. What was going on? I learned from his wife that she’d suggested, strongly, that he try yoga – and he loved it. In addition to physical postures and exercises, traditional yoga incorporates breath control, deep relax-
ation, meditation, concentration and mindfulness. These mind-body practices counteract stress by evoking the relaxation response. When we feel stress, our bodies enter “fight or flight” mode. We release stress hormones that put our brain and body on high alert. This “fight or flight” response was of great help to our distant ancestors when they were running from a lion, and it’s also of great help today when we face an urgent and dangerous situation. It can even help in dealing with a sudden stressful situation that really isn’t dangerous – like talking your way out of a speeding ticket. But over time, stress can take a toll on your mental and physical health.
The relaxation response is essentially the opposite of the stress response. It lowers heart rate and blood pressure and decreases the production of stress hormones. Practicing yoga leads to changes in the mind and body that promote feelings of tranquility and well-being. My friend Dr. Herbert Benson, a famous meditation researcher here at Harvard Medical School, described the following exercises to elicit the relaxation response. Give them a try to see if they help you to feel more relaxed: • Select a word, mantra, prayer or thought. Focus your attention on it in a relaxed manner. • When other, everyday thoughts intrude, let them
go. Refocus your attention on step one in a relaxed and patient manner without frustration or judgment. Start by doing this for five minutes. Gradually increase the amount of time you spend on the exercises. To learn more about the physical and mental benefits of yoga, you can read a short new e-book called “Your Brain on Yoga” by Harvard Medical School’s Dr. Sat Bir Khalsa, with Jodie Gould. You can learn more about this book at my website.

What are the odds of not getting pregnant? Dr. Wallace: My boyfriend and I have been together almost a year, and we think it is time to start a sexual relationship. We have both heard from our friends that sex is the ultimate in a loving relationship, and we both love each other very much and want to take our love to another level. Since both of us are Catholic, we have always been taught that it is sinful to use contraceptives to avoid pregnancy. I have read books explaining the best time for a female to have sex and not get pregnant, and we plan to use this information. I hope
’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace I won’t get pregnant, but if I do, we will get married immediately because we love each other and already plan to be married in the near future. We are both 19 and would be 20 if a child is brought into this world because of our love. My boyfriend is really into statistics, and he wants to know the odds of my not getting pregnant in a year’s time if we have sex once

TODAY – You need not be fearful of having more than one major objective in the year ahead. Even if others might be unable to handle multiple ventures simultaneously, you should be able to do so with grace and aplomb. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – An involvement where you share a mutual interest with another should work out quite smoothly today in some dealings you have with a person who is very difficult to please. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – The timing could be unusually good for you to make a request of someone who doesn’t readily grant favors. Point out to this person what would be in it for him or her. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – By cleaning out the basement, attic or garage, you might discover some gems that you put aside in the past and forgot about. Be sure to open all those old boxes. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – A social gathering could pair you with someone whom you’ve been very eager to approach. Don’t be hesitant to introduce the reason why you wanted to get in touch. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – Certain financial or commercial matters can be successfully concluded to your satisfaction if you’re willing to take the time and effort to do so. Don’t coast when you can run. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – Someone older or more experienced might point out a new direction for you. It could be some of the best advice you’ve received in a long time. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – You’re in a favorable cycle for profiting from situations initiated by someone else. Be on the alert for anything different that sounds enticing. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Even if some of your present expectations seem to be a bit outlandish to some of your friends, they really aren’t that far-fetched from your perspective. Your view is clearer than theirs. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – Something extremely constructive could develop through the efforts of another, which will give you the assistance you need to get ahead. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – You’re likely to get an opportunity to cultivate a new friendship. It might even be with someone whom you’ve been anxious to get to know better. This could be the start of something beautiful. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – A little extra effort where your career is concerned could put you out in front of the pack. Be assertive and conscientious when pursuing your objectives. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – If you allow a past educational experience to guide you, everything should work out quite beautifully in your dealings with someone who is very difficult to please.
a week during that time. I thought you might have information on this subject and would appreciate anything you can tell us. – Sissy, Atlanta, Ga. Sissy: You will probably get pregnant. Several years ago, the Alan Guttmacher Institute reported that if teens do not use effective contraceptives, the chance of pregnancy is 90 percent. Since you were taught that using contraceptives was sinful, you also must know that premarital sex is also against the Church’s teachings. My advice is that you give up the selective theology and make
some real decisions about your life. Practice abstinence, as the Church teaches, or use a condom, possibly in combination with other birth control, as science teaches. And if you are going to marry, make that decision and announce it to the world. Don’t wait for an unplanned pregnancy to make the announcement for you! Dr. Wallace: I remembered reading your column praising teens for being excellent volunteers helping those who are in need. I’d like to inform you that our cheerleaders and pep squad held a “Sandy” car wash on a

Play the card known to be yours Benjamin Franklin said, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” At the bridge table, we try to use the knowledge gleaned from the bidding and the play (as it progresses) to make informed decisions. How should the play go in this three-notrump contract after West leads the spade queen? What is the key piece of knowledge declarer wants and East must keep hidden? South starts with seven top tricks: two spades, one heart, three diamonds and one club. He could attack either hearts or clubs, but the minor suit offers much better chances for three tricks. Declarer ducks the first trick, takes the second spade with his king, plays a diamond to dummy’s queen, and leads a club to his nine. West wins this with, say, the queen (he should vary his play in this situation) and continues with another spade to dummy’s ace. Now comes dummy’s last club. What happens next? If East carelessly plays his eight, South should put up his ace, dropping West’s king and collecting 11 tricks. Why should he drop the king? Given that East is known to have the club 10 from the first round of the suit, when East plays the club eight second, he started with 10-8-5 or K-10-8-5. In the second case, the contract is unmakable. However, on the second round of clubs, East should follow the excellent principle of playing the card he is known to hold. If he puts up the 10, declarer will place him with K-10-5, finesse his club jack, and go down three.
