Irongate development approved ShoDeen says housing plan near DHS would unfold over 20 years By JILLIAN DUCHNOWSKI jduchnowski@shawmedia.com DeKALB – DeKalb Mayor John Rey shook ShoDeen developer Dave Patzelt’s hand Monday after City Council members narrowly passed plans for his massive Irongate housing development. “I look forward to having your development in our community,” Rey

said, thanking Patzelt for his tenacity over five years of discussions. The council voted, 6-2, to annex 458 acres near DeKalb High School, 501 W. Dresser Road. Third Ward Alderwoman Kristen Lash and 1st Ward Alderman David Jacobson, who have opposed the development in the past, voted against the annexation agreement Monday. Under the plan, Irongate would

bers. The plan includes two church sites, several parks and an elementary school. The plan includes about 5 acres of commercial property at the southeast corner of the intersection at Annie Glidden and Bethany roads, which would be surrounded by the townhomes, the memo shows. About 11.6 acres would be dedicated to the 350 senior housing units along Bethany Road near the western portion of the development. None of the townhomes can be built until at least 350 single-family homes are finished, and city officials and the townhome owners associa-

tion will be able to enforce a ban on townhome owners renting out the townhomes. ShoDeen expects the community would be built over 20 years, with about 21 units being built in the first year. It expects more units would be built each year, with about 80 units built in the 10th year. In recent months, the developer removed about 30 proposed housing units and made other adjustments so DeKalb Park District and DeKalb School District 428 leaders would sign off on the design.

fsarver@shawmedia.com DeKALB – Vicky Vosburgh is doing her part to help DeKalb County make a good impression on fans who will visit DeKalb to attend the state high school football championships at Huskie Stadium in November. It’s the first time the Illinois High School Association football championship games will be held in the county. Vosburgh, a Genoa resident and office administrator at Northern Illinois University, plans to donate her time working as an usher during the games Nov. 29 and 30. On Saturday, she received training along with more than a dozen other volunteers at the stadium. “I think it will only help the community and enhance what people

CHICAGO – Doctors 2 parents: Limit kids’ tweeting, texting & keep smartphones, laptops out of bedrooms. #goodluckwiththat. The recommendations are bound to prompt eye-rolling and LOLs from many teens but an influential pediatricians group says parents need to know that unrestricted media use can have serious consequences. It’s been linked with violence, cyberbullying, school woes, obesity, lack of sleep and a host of other problems. It’s not a major cause of these troubles, but “many parents are clueless” about the profound impact media exposure can have on their children, said Dr. Victor Strasburger, lead author of the new American Academy of Pediatrics policy “This is the 21st century and they need to get with it,” said Strasburger, a University of New Mexico adolescent medicine specialist. The policy is aimed at all kids, including those who use smartphones, computers and other Internet-connected devices. It expands the academy’s longstanding recommendations on banning televisions from children’s and teens’ bedrooms and limiting entertainment screen time to no more than two hours daily. Under the new policy, those two hours include using the Internet for entertainment, including Facebook, Twitter, TV and movies; online homework is an exception. The policy statement cites a 2010 report that found U.S. children aged 8 to 18 spend an average of more than seven hours daily using some kind of entertainment media.

Durbin removes Facebook post The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin said Monday he was willing to take down a Facebook post an erroneous statement dating to the federal government shutdown. Durbin posted on his Facebook page Oct. 20 that at a meeting with President Barack Obama, a “GOP House Leader told the president: I can’t even stand to look at you.” Durbin was not at the meeting, but he says his source was a White House staffer who briefed him. The White House quickly said the information was wrong. Durbin said Monday that he was finally willing to delete the post because the White House has since acknowledged that the mistake stemmed from a miscommunication. “They gave me a bad quote and then they said it didn’t occur,” said Durbin, speaking to reporters after he and U.S. Sen. John McCain spoke to a civ-

ic group about immigration reform in Chicago. “Now it’s history, it’s behind us.” At the time of the post, Republicans, including the office of House Speaker John Boehner, angrily denied that any such statement had been made. And Obama’s spokesman said what Durbin posted “did not happen.” The next day, the White House appeared to take responsibility for what it called a misunderstanding that originated when White House officials gave Senate Democrats a summary of a meeting Obama had held with House Republicans. “There was a miscommunication when the White House read out that meeting to Senate Democrats, and we regret the misunderstanding,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said, adding that the quote was not accurate. On Monday, Durbin said there was never any misunderstanding, at least

not on his part. He also said when a “staffer in the White House” told him and other senators about the meeting, he found the comments so “earth-shattering” that he wrote them down verbatim. The Illinois Democrat, one of the president’s most loyal defenders, said when the White House admitted it had “misled members of Congress,” he posted that on his Facebook page. But he was not about to take down the original post, at least not for a while. “If I’d have raced to take it off, you [the media] would have done that story too: ‘Durbin races to take this off.’ I wanted to put into context how I got into this situation,” he said. Durbin said Monday that he’s now satisfied that it’s clear he didn’t make up the quote. Within a couple hours, the only evidence of the dispute was a Facebook post in which Durbin expressed his appreciation for “this clarification from the White House.”

Europe mulls sanctions against U.S. over spying The ASSOCIATED PRESS BERLIN – The United States could lose access to an important law enforcement tool used to track terrorist money flows, German officials said Monday, as Europe weighed a response to allegations that the Americans spied on their closest European allies. In Washington, Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein called for a “total review” of all U.S. intelligence programs in response to the allegations – activity the California Democrat said she wasn’t told about. Feinstein said that while her committee was informed of the National Security Agency’s collection of phone records under a secret court order, it “was not satisfactorily informed” that “certain surveillance activities have been in effect for more than a decade” — including eavesdropping on German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s own cellphone. She said President Barack Obama was also not told that Merkel’s communications were being collected since 2002. “With respect to NSA collection of intelligence on leaders of U.S. allies – including France, Spain, Mexico and Germany – let me state unequivocally: I am totally opposed,” Feinstein said in a statement Monday. “Unless the United States is engaged in hostilities against a country or there is an emergency need for this type of surveillance, I do not believe the Unit-

The policy notes that three-quarters of kids aged 12 to 17 own cellphones; nearly all teens send text messages, and many younger kids have phones giving them online access. “Young people now spend more time with media than they do in school – it is the leading activity for children and teenagers other than sleeping” the policy states. Mark Risinger, 16, of Glenview, is allowed to use his smartphone and laptop in his room, and says he spends about four hours daily on the Internet doing

A man is reflected in paneling as he speaks on his phone Feb. 26 at the Mobile World Congress, the world’s largest mobile phone trade show, in Barcelona, Spain. ed States should be collecting phone calls or emails of friendly presidents and prime ministers,” Feinstein said. “The president should be required to approve any collection of this sort.” Spain became the latest U.S. ally to demand answers after a Spanish newspaper reported that the NSA monitored more than 60 million phone calls in that country during one month alone. The report Monday in the daily El Mundo came on the heels of allegations of massive NSA spying in France and Germany. With European leaders dissatisfied with the U.S. response so far, officials

have been casting about for a way to pressure Washington to provide details of past surveillance and assurances that the practice will be curbed. The challenge is to send a strong message to Washington against wholesale spying on European citizens and institutions without further damage to the overall trans-Atlantic relationship. As possible leverage, German authorities cited last week’s nonbinding resolution by the European Parliament to suspend a post-9/11 agreement allowing the Americans access to bank transfer data to track the flow of terrorist money.

Some parents restrict kids’ use of social media • ONLINE

homework, using Facebook and YouTube and watching movies. He said a two-hour Internet time limit “would be catastrophic” and that kids won’t follow the advice, “they’ll just find a way to get around it.” Strasburger said he realizes many kids will scoff at advice from pediatricians – or any adults. “After all, they’re the experts! We’re media-Neanderthals to them,” he said. But he said he hopes it will lead to more limits from parents and schools, and more government research on the effects of media. The policy was published online Monday in the journal Pediatrics. It comes two weeks after police arrested two Florida girls accused of bullying a classmate who committed suicide. Police say one of the girls recently boasted online about the bullying and the local sheriff questioned why the suspects’ parents hadn’t restricted their Internet use. Mark’s mom, Amy Risinger, said she agrees with restricting kids’ time on social media but that deciding on

other media limits should be up to parents. “I think some children have a greater maturity level and you don’t need to be quite as strict with them,” said Risinger, who runs a communications consulting firm. Her 12-year-old has sneaked a laptop into bed a few times and ended up groggy in the morning, “so that’s why the rules are now in place, that that device needs to be in mom and dad’s room before he goes to bed.” Sara Gorr, a San Francisco sales director and mother of girls, ages 13 and 15, said she welcomes the academy’s recommendations. Her girls weren’t allowed to watch the family’s lone TV until a few years ago. The younger one has a tablet, and the older one has a computer and smartphone, and they’re told not to use them after 9 p.m. “There needs to be more awareness,” Gorr said. “Kids are getting way too much computer time. It’s bad for their socialization, it’s overstimulating, it’s numbing them.”

Sycamore man faces child porn charges DeKalb police looking By FELIX SARVER fsarver@shawmedia.com

and ASHLEY SLOBODA asloboda@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – A Sycamore man who is a coach and teacher at a St. Charles middle school was arrested Monday on child pornography charges, Sycamore police said. Police arrived with a search warrant at 6 a.m. at the home of Jerome B. McCauley, 45, of the 300 block of Grant Street in Sycamore. A search of McCauley’s home uncovered digital images and videos of child pornography, Sycamore Police Lt. Darrell Johnson said.

McCauley is charged with distribution and possession of child pornography, the more serious of which typically is punishable with between six and 30 years in prison. McCauley, who coaches volleyball and teaches seventh-graders at Wredling Middle School in St. Charles School District 303, was Jerome B. placed on paid McCauley leave Monday morning, District Superintendent Don Schlomann said. “In addition, we worked with the local [St. Charles] police

department and secured all of his technology here in the district,” said Schlomann, noting McCauley had a computer and an iPad. McCauley’s Internet access has been disabled, and he will be unable to access district property, including his school email address, Schlomann said. “The safety of students dictates he won’t be at school,” the superintendent said. Schlomann said McCauley is in his 19th year with the district. Police began the investigation in August, when a Sycamore detective assigned to Internet crimes found an IP

address associated with someone who may have possessed child pornography, police said. After a series of subpoenas and search warrants, police recently connected McCauley to the child pornography, police said. The way McCauley had the material through a file-sharing program indicates he also distributed it, police said. The investigation is pending and more charges are possible, according to the Sycamore police news release. McCauley is being held in the DeKalb County Jail without bond until a hearing this morning.

DeKalb and state police collected materials and equipment used to make the drug Sunday from a room at Travel Inn, 1116 W. Lincoln Highway, DeKalb police said in a news release. The Thomas M. investigation Wilkinson began Sunday when someone reported finding methamphetamine-related materials in a nearby trash bin at 1120 W. Lincoln Highway. Police also recovered 2.45 grams of methamphetamine, court records show. They arrested the hotel room’s tenant, Thomas M. Wilkinson, 29, who remained in DeKalb County Jail on Monday unable to post 10 percent of his $200,000 bond. Wilkinson told police he was cooking methamphetamine with several other people, court records show. Wilkinson was charged with aggravated participa-

NIU student accused of dealing pot Hinckley woman By JILLIAN DUCHNOWSKI jduchnowski@shawmedia.com DeKALB – An Northern Illinois University student found with 2.6 ounces of marijuana in his dorm room is next due in DeKalb County

court Nov. 13. Philemon Bromby, 18, of the 1100 block of Stadium Drive in DeKalb, was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver it on school grounds, which is a felony typically punishable with

probation or up to five years in prison. He was released from jail Friday on his own recognizance. NIU police received Bromby’s consent to search his room Thursday night after receiving an anonymous tip,

court documents show. Police found about 74 grams, or 2.6 ounces, of marijuana packaged in plastic bags and in jars, court records show. Bromby told police he had been selling marijuana, court records show.

Committee member: Opportunity to showcase county • DEKALB Continued from page A1 The committee was formed after the IHSA named NIU the host of the football championship series in June 2012. The championships will be held in DeKalb in odd-numbered years until 2021. Besides trying to recruit and train more than 200 volunteers ranging from ushers to parking attendants to work at the twoday event, committee members also are working to meet their fundraising goal. Jerry Smith, a Destination DeKalb committee member and a DeKalb resident, has been helping to raise the $225,000 needed to host the event. Thus far, the committee has secured about $216,000 from municipalities, businesses and community members, he said. Even if some people are unable to throw down $25,000 like KishHealth System or $500 like Sycamore Chamber

of Commerce, every little bit helps. Smith said a lot of people like the idea of contributing to something that will benefit the community. “It’s never hard when you have a good product to sell, in this case the IHSA football championships,” Smith said about finding sponsors. “The task is made much easier.” The games were held only in Champaign since 1999. Based on how well the games did there, the committee members estimate they will draw more than 30,000 people and contribute about $1 million to the local economy as fans and families shop, stay and eat in the area. “This is not about 16 good teams coming and playing eight football games,” Smith said. “This is an opportunity to showcase DeKalb County and its economic development. It’s a wonderful place to raise a family.” One of the main features of the event during the games will be the “spirit zone.” Somewhat

similar to the “tent city” at Champaign, the spirit zone will have a main hospitality tent with surrounding tents for all the football teams, said Debbie Armstrong, committee member and executive director of the DeKalb County Convention and Visitors Bureau. “It’s a place where the community gathers to meet all these teams and walk among them and greet them,” she said. At the hospitality tent, visitors can get warm and have snacks while meeting members and leaders of the DeKalb County community. Entertainment such as inflatables, an armchair quarterback and TVs will also be available. Visitors can also meet with football teams in other tents. Brad Hoey, committee member and NIU communications and marketing director, said he thinks one of the reasons why NIU won the bid for hosting championship games was its past history with hosting high school football at the Huskie

Stadium and success with hosting football games elsewhere, such as Soldier Field in Chicago. “We played up that fact we’re accustomed to large-scale events at any time of the week and any time of the day,” he said. Another factor was the developing Kenneth and Ellen Chessick Practice Center, he said. The indoor athletic training center finished construction during the summer and had its public opening Saturday. The host committee still is seeking volunteers for the event, and Armstrong said more people are talking about helping out now that the event is drawing nearer. Hoey said he knew winning the bid for hosting the games wouldn’t be the hardest part. “If we get this, the heavy lifting is yet to come,” he said. “We’re doing the heavy lifting and we got to carry it off to the finish line now.”

Former DeKalb mayor worries plan will change over time • IRONGATE Continued from page A1 While discussing the proposal Monday, 7th Ward Alderwoman Monica O’Leary said the proposed development could provide housing in light of esti-

mated increased demand. But Jacobson repeated his doubts that the housing was needed in light of empty lots in other DeKalb developments, as well as homeowners in recent new developments seeing foreclosures and property values

plummeting to half of the original purchase prices. “I just don’t think with the empty lots and the amount of nondevelopment in our community, this is the time,” Jacobson said. Former DeKalb mayor and

longtime resident Bessie Chronopoulos questioned whether the developer would follow through with the design promises in the proposal. “The fear I have is that it will change,” she said. “The flavor of this will change.”

Quinn asks lawmakers for an extra $221M The ASSOCIATED PRESS SPRINGFIELD – Gov. Pat Quinn’s administration wants lawmakers to approve $221 million in extra funds to spend this fiscal year, a request that follows the $35 billion budget approved by the Legislature in May. A draft of the request includes $112 million to pay back wages owed to 25,000 state workers, the Springfield Bureau of Lee Enterprises reported. The effort by the administration to secure additional funds for the workers showcases continued tension between the Quinn and the Legislature over the issue. The state’s largest employee union sued after the General Assembly in 2011 refused to appropriate money for the raises promised to workers in five state agencies under the state’s old labor contract. Quinn had said there was no money for the raises. A Cook County Circuit Court judge ruled in December that Illinois had to pay the raises, plus interest. Quinn had previously agreed to restore the wages,

Gov. Pat Quinn responds to a question Thursday about the ongoing legislative issues in Springfield, after a visit to a Wheeling High School. but the Legislature failed to act on a supplemental spending request in the spring. Quinn’s assistant budget director, Abdon Pallasch, said the administration will continue to push to get the money for the raises approved. “The court has ordered us to pay this bill,” Pallasch told The Associated Press. “Not paying it does not make it go away.”

Also in the request is another $40.5 million for the Illinois Department of Corrections, part of which would cover converting state prisons to a two-meal a day “brunch and dinner” system, The AP reported last week. State police and the Department of Human services are asking for a total of $34 million to help implement the state’s new concealed carry

law. The state police also requested $1.8 million to train a new class of cadets, and the state’s Emergency Management Agency wants $6 million to help cover April flooding. Pallasch said the Department of Transportation is also requesting $3 million for a program helping minority businesses enterprises.

8BRIEFS New chief justice backs cameras in court CHICAGO – The Illinois Supreme Court’s new chief justice said she fully supports her predecessor’s push to open trials to news photographers and electronic media. Rita Garman made her comments in a phone interview with The Associated Press on Monday shortly after she was sworn in at a ceremony in her hometown of Danville. The 69-year-old replaces Thomas Kilbride. His highest profile policy was launching a pilot program two years ago permitting cameras in select courtrooms. Asked in the interview if she backs the pilot program, Garman responded, “I certainly do –

wholeheartedly.” And she added she didn’t see Illinois ever going back to a blanket prohibition on courtroom cameras.

Jackson’s doctor released from jail after 2 years LOS ANGELES – The doctor convicted of killing Michael Jackson was released from jail Monday after serving nearly two years of a four-year sentence. Conrad Murray was released from a downtown Los Angeles jail at 12:01 a.m., according to the sheriff’s office. A change in California law allowed his incarceration time to be significantly cut down. “He was elated to be out of there,” Murray’s attorney Valerie Wass said. – Wire reports

Marketplace KishHealth partners with senior center Earlier this year, KishHealth Physician Group opened a new location to see patients at Fox Valley Older Adults Center, 1406 Suydam Road, Sandwich. On a rotating basis, physicians from other KishHealth Physician Group locations in Sandwich and Plano will see patients at FVOAS from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursdays. The clinic at FVOAS is similar to other KPG locations, with a nurse on staff and a pleasant waiting area and clinical space. The partnership with FVOAS is part of KishHealth System’s mission, and a result of a communitywide needs assessment that was conducted in 2012. The needs assessment identified a wide variety of priorities, including expanding access to care and older adult health. The new clinic on site at FVOAS creates more access by placing a physician and other clinical staff in a comfortable and known setting, and allows the health system to directly impact the health of local older adults. Three local KPG family practice physicians, Drs. Jamie Broekhuizen, Maureen Dela Cruz and Syeda Ali, will rotate out to FVOAS and provide needed services. “We’re in the midst of a fundamental change in the way health care is being delivered,” Kevin Poorten, KishHealth System CEO, said in a news release. “The health system, through our physician group, is working to be a leader in that change by moving care outside of the hospital, and helping the entire

community manage its health.” In addition to the physician clinic, the health system Community Wellness and Physical Therapy Departments are providing fitness and other wellness classes on site at the community center. KPG became part of KishHealth System in 2011 starting with Drs. Erik Englehart and Azeem Haleem and employs primary care and specialist physicians throughout the DeKalb and Sandwich areas. “We really feel that patients who choose one of our health system physicians benefit from greater access to care,” Abe Chacko, executive director of KishHealth System Physician Group, said in the release. “We accept a broad base of insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid, and have a fee scale for those without insurance. And through the support of the health system, our physicians have the latest technology, equipment and education to provide patients a really high level of care.” KishHealth System and FVOAS will celebrate their partnership and the opening of the clinic with a public open house from 5 to 7 p.m. Nov. 14. The open house features activities and a blood pressure screening, and the Sandwich Area Chamber of Commerce will host an official ribbon-cutting at 5:30 p.m. Full results of the community needs assessment, and KishHealth System’s strategy and implementation plan can be found on the health system website.

Target Distribution Center donates to cancer center Target Distribution Center group leaders Brian Wedoff and Kristopher Miller stopped by the KishHealth System Cancer Center on Sept. 30, with a check for $3,500, which they presented to Debra Bemis, director of KishHealth System Oncology Services and Marcy Rubic, executive director of KishHealth System Foundation. The donation will benefit KishHealth System’s cancer support programs. “We appreciate Target’s ongoing support of the Cancer Center to provide programs for those impacted by cancer,” Bemis said in a news releaase. “The programs offer support, education and opportunities to develop friendships. Cancer survivors and their families experience many stressors while going through cancer treatment and following treatment. These programs are there to help them cope.”

Heidemann provides sales tips as DCEDC recognizes achievements DeKalb County Economic Development Corp. held its 26th annual dinner Oct. 22 in the Duke Ellington Ballroom at Northern Illinois University. The event was attended by more than 250 business and community members with the support of 12 exhibitors and 21 event sponsors. Keynote speaker Lyle Heidemann provided advice to attendees on increasing sales derived from his seven decades in wholesale and retail businesses. Heidemann stressed thinking beyond increasing sales to core customers by identifying new customer segments that can generate significant growth. He recommended “creating a strategy to generate totally new, or change very minor customers into growth engines while continuing to service and grow your current core customers.” Generating significant volume from new or underserved markets requires leadership commitment to aggressive goals and vision for achieving these goals. Heidemann provided examples from his own experience. At his family’s farm, they went beyond the sales of eggs to grocery stores, to provide home delivery directly to consumers. While leading Sears Home Appliances, he increased market share from 30 percent to 40 percent by increasing sales of national brands within the Sears stores and

DCEDC VIEW Paul Borek developing a high-end Kenmore house brand to compete with national brands. As president of True Value, Heidemann transformed the organization from a wholesale to a retail culture by making stores more female-friendly, developing initiatives to attract younger consumers and adding product categories with increased purchase frequency. To encourage cooperative store owners to implement new store formats, the company provided incentives for owners, including construction and inventory financing, design teams and market location assistance. During the annual State of the County Address, several business development projects and partnerships that strengthen the local economy were described. Triumph Truss & Steel of Huntley formed a joint venture with Rehkemper & Son Building Components of St. Rose to establish a new truss plant in Kirkland. They purchased a vacant building in the Bull Run Industrial Park on Route 72 for this purpose. DeKalb Forge and Nehring Electric Works of DeKalb and The Suter Co. of Sycamore are undertaking expansions. DEVNET is expanding to a newly

purchased building in the Sycamore Prairie Business Park and ENCAP is expanding to a remodeled building on Wagner Court in DeKalb. DCEDC and Kishwaukee College have assisted CST Storage in DeKalb with employee training to support their growth. With industries expanding or locating in DeKalb County and prospects clamoring for workers, DCEDC partnered with the Greater Rochelle Economic Development Corp., Kishwaukee College, area manufacturers and school districts to form the DeKalb Ogle County Workforce Development Consortium. The collaborative group has begun a program to demonstrate to students how careers in industry can be financially rewarding and fulfilling, teach them the required skills and provide them with work place experience. Several companies indicated just how productive partnerships with Northern Illinois University and Kishwaukee College have been to their businesses. These partnerships included recruiting talented interns and full-time employees, and collaborating with the College of Engineering and Engineering Technology on product development

Politics on ground make little wars turn messy “The examination of war from an exclusively military perspective, isolated from its social and political context, leads to false conclusions and poor strategy.” That is the conclusion of Emile Simpson, a former infantry officer in the Royal Gurkha Rifles, who served three tours of duty in Afghanistan, in his book, “War From the Ground Up.” The book has won extraordinary praise from the veteran British military historian Michael Howard, who wrote in the Times Literary Supplement, calling it “a work of such importance that it should be compulsory reading at every level in the military.” Howard compares Simpson’s book to the classic “On War,” by the Prussian military strategist Carl von Clausewitz. Both experienced a war that was utterly different from what they had been trained for and tried to explain it “from the top down as well as from the ground up.” Clausewitz experienced the total war wrought by Napoleon’s massive citizen armies and the large armies raised by Prussia, Austria and Russia in response. “War,” he famously concluded, “is merely the continuation of policy by other means.” In such large wars, the outcome is rarely ambiguous. Each side pursues the “absolute victory” promised by Franklin Roosevelt in his Pearl Harbor speech. Virtually everyone recognizes that result when it happens. When the result is ambiguous, the result can be disastrous, as when Germany surrendered in November 1918 rather than be overrun by the Western powers. In the ensuing years, Hitler and others argued that Germany had been stabbed in the back by enemies within and sought revenge. Simpson argues that in most of the conflicts that liberal democracies have engaged

VIEWS Michael Barone in since 1945, things are not so clear. These are little wars, against enemies difficult to define, in which “tactical actions often need to be considered primarily in terms of their local political effect.” Inevitably, “a decision to attack one group or support another ... will attract some realignment in the local political situation.” And “strategy has to operate within a complex political environment that nobody can ever fully understand.” This was particularly true in Afghanistan, where kinship ties and local loyalties meant that the same individuals might, at one time, support the Taliban and, at another, the central government. In such conflicts, Simpson argues – as Samuel Huntington does in his 1957 book, “The Soldier and the State” – that there is no clear separation between the political setting of goals by the civilian commander-in-chief and the decisions carried out by military tacticians. In conflicts in places like Afghanistan and Iraq, political considerations must be taken into account, not just by civilian leaders and theater commanders, but also by lieutenants and sergeants. If they fail to “change policy in response to military reality,” the result is “like driving a car through the rear-view mirror rather than looking at the road ahead: It swerves all over the place and may crash.” This is hard for liberal democracies to do, he admits. But something like it has been done by U.S. and coalition troops, under Gen-

eral H. R. McMaster in Tal Afar, Iraq, from 2004 to 2006 and General David Petraeus’s in Anbar and elsewhere in 2007 and 2008. It is critical, Simpson argues, for the troops to live with the locals, getting to know them personally and gaining their trust. It is critical also to have a convincing “strategic narrative” that is flexible enough to appeal to different publics – to soldiers, to locals, to neighboring countries and to elites and voters back home. His major historical example, the 1962 to 1966 British-Indonesian conflict in Borneo, is not entirely reassuring. There, in response to Indonesian guerrilla and regular army attacks across the colonial border, British Commonwealth troops seasoned in jungle warfare in Malaya and Burma retaliated with cross-border attacks. But this occurred largely out of view of the press and the public. Neither government, for reasons of its own, declared war nor acknowledged that a conflict was going on. The recent raids in Libya and Somalia and drone strikes in Yemen and elsewhere suggest that the U.S., even after leaving Iraq and preparing to leave Afghanistan, is engaged in more conflicts than headlines indicate. Some will take Simpson’s book as an argument to avoid such conflicts altogether. Others, who believe that the U.S. must act to eliminate terrorist havens, should take it as a warning that Simpson’s wars, like Clausewitz’s, are devilishly difficult. • Michael Barone, senior political analyst for The Washington Examiner, is a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, a Fox News Channel contributor and a co-author of The Almanac of American Politics.

Talk lately about Obamacare focuses primarily on what can only be described as the disastrous rollout of the government’s website to sign people up. Tales of frustration dominated recent headlines to the point President Barack Obama was compelled to call a news conference to address the issue. The president in that appearance offered plenty of statements worthy of review, like his suggestion one way around the flawed website is to file a paper application or provide information over the telephone. Really? As one pundit countered, why not dust off the telegraph? Another excuse for the website’s poor performance is overwhelming demand swamping servers. Again, this is laughable. The health care site struggled to handle about 8 million hits in its first week. Well guess what? According to eBizMBA, top websites handle far more per week without the headaches: Google, 225 million; Facebook, 175 million; Yahoo, 125 million; YouTube, 122 million. As troubling as the Obamacare website may be, a year or two out we may yearn for such a problem. That’s because an increasing number of commentators and news outlets point out much larger issues lie ahead with the so-called “Affordable” Care Act. Here are a couple. Less expensive health insurance plans are disappearing, putting the lie to the idea that “if you like your policy, you can keep it.” According to Anna Gorman and Julie Appleby, writing in Kaiser Health News: “Florida Blue, for example, is terminating about 300,000 policies, about 80 percent of its individual policies in the state. Kaiser Permanente in California has sent notices to 160,000 people – about half of its individual business in the state. Insurer Highmark in Pittsburgh is dropping about 20 percent of its individual market customers, while Independence Blue Cross, the major insurer in Philadelphia, is dropping about 45 percent. “Blue Shield of California sent roughly 119,000 cancellation notices out in mid-September, about 60 percent of its individual business. About two-thirds of those policyholders will see rate increases in their new policies,” the article adds. Then there is the effect of the health care law on employment. Companies now have incentive to keep their workforce below 50 employees and to allow less than 30 hours of work a week. “The evidence that ObamaCare is having a negative impact on hiring is unequivocal, abundant and consistent with common sense,” Andrew Puzder, chief executive officer of CKE Restaurants, wrote earlier this month in the Wall Street Journal. Simple logic, Puzder reasons. “If you have three employees working 40 hours per week they will produce 120 labor hours. Five employees working 24 hours per week also produce 120 labor hours. Employers must offer the three full-time employees health insurance or pay a penalty. They have no such obligation to the five part-time employees, making part-time employment less costly,” Puzder wrote. Critics have tried to discredit Puzder, but recent events in Cedar Falls provide a clear illustration. In November, the city reduced 59 part-time employees’ hours to 29 a week. On the downside, those employees lose three hours of pay. On the upside, the city avoids laying off up to 30 workers to fill the $855,000 hole in its budget created by providing health insurance. If only the website was the biggest problem with Obamacare. If only. Waterloo-Cedar Falls (Iowa) Courier

12 words you should stop using right now immediately:

By ALEXANDRA PETRI The Washington Post If you want a list of words to incorporate into your conversation to make you sound more intelligent, this is not the place. Frankly, I am not sure what you hope to gain by working random Internet vocabulary words into your conversations. These lists always result in conversations in which you pause for a few seconds and then say, furrowing your brow with intense concentration, “Dang, that lady makes a fine crepitation! I’d like to show her a machicolation or two, or would I?” And that which never impresses anyone quite as much as you would like. Instead, here are a few to purge from your speech

12. Actually, when you mean to use “literally,” when what you really mean is “figuratively” or “not literally.” As in the sentence “I ACTUALLY DIED.” No, you didn’t. I appreciate your effort to stop using “literally” in that position, but “actually” isn’t an improvement.

11. Irregardless This is not a real word. “Ah,” you say, “but neither was jangle when Shakespeare got started with it!” Sorry, this is not sufficient. Have you written “The Tempest” lately? “No,” you say, because apparently you are really going to get into this with me, “but I did write something that was AT LEAST as good as ‘Cymbeline,’ if not miles better.” Was it really, though?

Are you sure? I acknowledge that “Cymbeline” was terrible, but somehow I doubt your assertion.

sense that this sentence makes the whole language worse. (I’ve harped on this before.)

10. Exacerbate, when what you want is aggravate, when what you want is irritate.

Just kidding, actually. Go right ahead and keep using YOLO. It is a handy flag for people whose acquaintance I can avoid.

The English language gave up on dragging aggravate back to its original meaning “make worse,” years ago, when even Dickens used it to mean irritate. This being said, exacerbate is not the word you want when you are trying to talk about how irritating something was. I know it sounds longer and fancier than irritate or aggravate, but you mean exasperate. Leave exacerbate at “make worse,” where it belongs. There is nothing more exacerbating than someone saying, “It was just so exacerbating!” – at least in the

9. YOLO

8. Synergy I think this word meant something once, but at this point it is stuck in some weird circle of post-Dantean business-tripping Hades where it goes from conference to conference and PowerPoint to PowerPoint getting listed as something to encourage.

7. Disrupt Are you sure you’re being innovatively disruptive? Are you sure what you’re doing isn’t just saying something inane?

Just once I want to hear a resident of a small town described as “the pepper of the earth” or “the Sriracha of the earth” because, hey, that guy must be pretty cool and go great with rice dishes!

5. Lucubrate This is just a test to see if anyone uses this word. If you do, come be my friend! Let’s go douse things in Sriracha together!

4. Game-changer Unless you’re talking about formative experiences in the life of rapper the Game, which you aren’t, because what has he even been up to lately? Or something that happened in the course of a sporting event.

3. Twerk/Twerking I realize that this happens. I just wish we didn’t have to talk

2. Headline lies This isn’t a word so much as it is a sentiment, like “The Only Video Of X You’ll Ever Need To See” or “This GIF of A Puppy Doing Something To A Pumpkin Spice Latte Will Change Your Life.” Is it? Will it? I guess “This May be Marginally Interesting And It Won’t Take That Much Time Away From The Project You’re Ostensibly Doing” doesn’t have the same clickbait cachet. Also, the term “click-bait.”

BEARS ANALYSIS

Planning for Pack begins Trestman does not see early return for Cutler

Penn State: 26 people get $59.7M over Sandusky HARRISBURG, Pa. – Penn State said Monday it is paying $59.7 million to 26 young men over claims of child sexual abuse at the hands of former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky (above), a man once revered as a university icon who is now serving what is effectively a life prison sentence. Nearly two years after the retired coach was first charged with child molestation, the school said 23 deals were fully signed and three were agreements in principle. It did not disclose the names of the recipients. The school faces six other claims, and the university says it believes some of those do not have merit while others may produce settlements. University president Rodney Erickson issued a statement calling the announcement a step forward for victims and the school. “We cannot undo what has been done, but we can and must do everything possible to learn from this and ensure it never happens again at Penn State,” said Erickson, who announced the day Sandusky was convicted in June 2012 that Penn State was determined to compensate his victims. The settlements have been unfolding since mid-August, when attorneys for the accusers began to disclose them. Penn State has not been confirming them, waiting instead to announce deals at once. Harrisburg lawyer Ben Andreozzi, who helped negotiate several of the settlements, said his clients were satisfied. – Wire report

8WHAT TO WATCH

Remember when you were in grade school and you’d go away for spring break for a week, only to have it end knowing you’d have to go back to school for at least a couple more months? That was Monday at Halas Hall. And just like that first day back at school, Monday was the time to catch up on what and how everybody did during their short vacations. Almost every day the next few weeks will have some

BEARS INSIDER Hub Arkush focus on Jay Cutler and how quickly he might get back on the field. Bears coach Marc Trestman told us Monday, “I am encouraged by his sense for how he is improving. That is a positive sign. I think we have to stay within the framework that the doctors gave us and we’ll see where he is next week.” Strangely, the Bears seem to have a better sense of where Cutler is than cornerback Charles Tillman. “He worked out here in

individual,” Trestman said. “He didn’t practice today. He says he feels better. So, that is the only answer I can give you right now. I am not trying to keep anything from you.” For Trestman and his staff, the main order of business as they worked, while the players rested, was a ton of self-scouting and trying to figure out where and how they can get better with the players they will have. The coach’s main takeaway was: “We know we’ve got to control the football and time of possession. We’ve got to make sure, when we flip the field, that we make it a long field.”

SANDWICH – Sycamore volleyball isn’t used to playing in the regional quarterfinals. But as the No. 3 seed in a six-team regional the Spartans had an extra playoff match against Sandwich on Monday. Sycamore made good use of it, serving up 11 aces

and cruising to a 25-10, 2518 victory over host Sandwich. The Spartans (14-17) will play Rock Falls in the regional semifinals at 7 p.m. today. “We’re used to this gym. It was sort of difficult to get used to at first, but now we have that under our belts,” senior libero Christina Dailey said. “We’ve played in here once, we’ve got one win down, lots more

to go.” Sycamore’s Jenee Carlson started the match off with an ace, a sign of good things to come for the Spartans, who never trailed in the first game. Back-to-back kills from Mallory Wolf and Gabrielle Wenger gave the Spartans a 17-8 lead before Sandwich called its second timeout.

CLASS 1A PEORIA SUPERSECTIONAL PREVIEW

Cogs look to avenge early-season loss G-K faces Somonauk for chance at state semifinals By ANTHONY ZILIS sports@daily-chronicle.com GENOA – Genoa-Kingston coach Randy Tate doesn’t remember the score of his team’s preseason game against Earlville, or if the teams even kept score. But he does remember being struck by the possession style his team was able to play after last year’s team relied on two star forwards to create chances. At that point, Tate knew his team would have a chance to have a special season. “We looked awesome,” Tate said. “I thought, ‘Wow, we have

something here that I haven’t seen. A lot more passing and teamwork. I had high hopes at the beginning … The control of the ball and our passing and teamwork was just a lot better than I’ve seen in the past.” The Cogs hit some bumps in the road, including the season-opening Stillman Valley tournament, in which they lost to Stillman Valley and Hinckley-Big Rock, but they’re making the type of run that Tate always thought they could. On Saturday, the Cogs won their first sectional title in school history, and they’ve done so by

building a balanced team. “Once everybody settled in and accepted their roles and started playing their positions, things started to click,” Tate said. The Cogs only lost three times after the Stillman Valley tournament, and their run continued with a 1-0 victory over Stillman on Saturday. On Tuesday in Peoria, they’ll have a chance to avenge another early-season loss when they play Somonauk, which beat them 7-1 in the season opener, in the Class 1A Peoria Christian Super-Sectional with a trip to the state semifinals on the line.

BLACKHAWKS 5, WILD 1

MLB

Hawks look impressive in win By MARK LAZERUS Chicago Sun-Times ST. PAUL, Minn. – The Blackhawks didn’t solve all their problems in one night with Monday night’s 5-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild. But things are certainly looking up. Joel Quenneville’s revamped top two lines each produced goals, newcomer Brad Mills spearheaded a perfect penalty kill, Corey Crawford and the defense rebounded with a stellar effort, Patrick Sharp finally got going and the Hawks turned a tight game into their first laugher of the season. Brandon Saad had a highlight-reel goal and a highlight-reel assist, and Patrick Kane added a goal and an assist of his own. Brandon Pirri had two secondary assists in his first game at second-line center, and Crawford finished with 29 saves. Despite two straight losses, including one to the Wild on Saturday night at the United Center, the Hawks were loose and energetic at the morning skate. It carried over to the game. Sharp, who hadn’t scored in five games and had just one goal all season despite creating as many chances as anyone on the team, finally broke through late in the first period. New linemate Marian Hossa worked the puck free behind the net, and Sharp made a nifty move at the corner of the crease to tuck the puck in behind Niklas Backstrom for a 1-0 Hawks lead.

The calm first period gave way to a hectic second, as three goals were scored in the final nine minutes. The Wild had been controlling play and out-chancing the Hawks, but Crawford kept them at bay, stopping Nino Niederreiter twice – once with his mask. But red-hot Jason Pominville ripped a shot past Crawford from the right circle for his sixth goal in eight games. The play was set up when Duncan Keith got over-aggressive at

First-round playoff tickets available for Sycamore

If it wasn’t for Northern Illinois’ Jordan Lynch, everyone who follows the Mid-American Conference would be talking about Ball State quarterback Keith Wenning for the Vern Smith Leadership Award, given to the Mid-American Conference MVP. Saturday’s 42-24 win at Akron was the first time Wenning didn’t throw for 300 yards this season. He still had five touchdown passes, and now holds the school records for career touchdown passes (79) and passing yards (10,119). He’s the 11th MAC quarterback to pass for 10,000 yards in a career. So far this season, Wenning has completed 61 percent of his passes for 2,625 yards, 18 touchdowns and five interceptions. “I think the most notable

General admission tickets can also be purchased online at www.syc427.org. There will be an additional convenience fee for online ticket sales. The gates will open at 1 p.m. Saturday.

Lewis named to Award Week 9 honor roll Northern Illinois wide receiver Tommylee Lewis was named to the Paul Hornung Award’s Week 9 honor roll Wednesday. The Paul Hornung Award is given to the nation’s most versatile player at the end of the season, and both Lewis and NIU quarterback Jordan Lynch were named to the award’s watch list before the season. Lewis had eight catches for 107 yards, had four carries for 81 yards and threw a 17-yard touchdown pass as well in NIU’s 59-20 win over Eastern Michigan on Saturday.

the blue line, going for the hit on Mikael Granlund instead of the puck, freeing Granlund up to hit Pominville in stride. But the Hawks quickly responded with a pair of goals. First, Sheldon Brookbank scored his first goal – becoming the last Hawks regular to earn a point this season – when he one-timed a Patrick Kane feed off a Nick Leddy rebound past Backstrom. Less than two minutes later, Leddy – the hometown boy and former Wild first-round

draft pick – scored on the power play, firing a shot from the point past Backstrom after Brent Seabrook made a terrific play at the other point to keep the puck in on a Wild clearing attempt. It was Leddy’s first goal of the season, and his first goal against the Wild. He had two assists Saturday in the Hawks’ 5-3 loss to Minnesota at home. The Hawks got the insurance goal that’s been eluding them for much of the season early in the third, when new linemates Saad and Kane scored a highlight-reel goal – Saad doing a near spin-orama on his behind-the-back feed around Minnesota’s star defenseman Ryan Suter – on a two-on-one to make it 4-1 at 2:47. Saad then made it 5-1 with some nifty stickwork, taking a Keith pass and beating Backstrom between the legs during 4-on-4 play at 8:43. The Hawks’ league-worst penalty-killing unit, meanwhile, held the Wild to just four shots on three power plays. Mills, a surprise call-up Friday night, looked like he could be the answer to who’ll be able to fill Michael Frolik’s spot alongside Marcus Kruger on the PK, using his speed and aggression to kill plays and clear pucks. The 30-yearold minor-league journeyman with just 33 NHL games under his belt is the fourth player the Hawks have tried in that spot – after Joakim Nordstrom, Michal Handzus and Ben Smith – and has been the most impressive, albeit in a small sample size.

Ball State’s Wenning putting up big numbers By STEVE NITZ snitz@shawmedia.com

Online Q&A Submit questions to Steve Nitz at snitz@shawmedia.com for his weekly Q&A. jump from last year to this year is how well he’s throwing deep balls,” Ball State head coach Pete Lembo said on Monday’s MAC coaches teleconference. “He’s always been very efficient with the shorter and intermediate throws, but this year I think he’s taken a definite step forward with deep balls, and that’s been really good to see.” NIU hosts Ball State on Nov. 13 in a matchup that could determine the MAC West champion. Fleck wins first game: It took longer than he had hoped, but Western Michigan head coach P.J. Fleck finally got his first career victory Saturday as the

Broncos defeated UMass, 3130, at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass. The Minutemen scored a touchdown with 22 seconds remaining in the contest to get within one point, and UMass head coach Charley Molnar decided to gamble and go for the two-point conversion. It didn’t pay off, as quarterback A.J. Doyle’s pass sailed out of the end zone. Fleck has made a lot of noise since arriving at WMU with his “Row the Boat” mantra, and he’s put together a nice 2014 recruiting class. Things started out rough for Fleck, the former Northern Illinois wide receiver and assistant coach, as WMU went through a rough nonconference schedule featuring three Big Ten teams, and also lost to FCS Nicholls State. It was starting to look like Fleck may have to wait until next year to get his first win

before the Broncos pulled one out Saturday. “We were really proud of their determination, their fight and resiliency,” Fleck said.

Buffalo on top of MAC East: Don’t look now, but Buffalo leads the MAC East at 4-0 and controls its own destiny. “We’re not where we want to be or where we need to be, but we certainly are not where we used to be,” Bulls head coach Jeff Quinn said. The Bulls’ league schedule so far (Eastern Michigan, Western Michigan, Kent State) has been easy, but the tough road starts Nov. 5 when Buffalo hosts Ohio. “We’re going to play one of the best teams in the MAC, we know that,” Quinn said. On Monday, Bulls linebacker Khalil Mack was named a semifinalist for the Butkus Award.

WORLD SERIES GAME 5: RED SOX 3, CARDINALS 1

Lester, Red Sox beat Cards, lead World Series By BEN WALKER The Associated Press ST. LOUIS – Jon Lester pitched the Boston Red Sox within a whisker of yet another World Series championship. Lester bested Adam Wainwright once again, journeyman David Ross hit a tiebreaking double in the seventh inning and the Red Sox downed the St. Louis Cardinals, 3-1, Monday night to take a 3-2 Series edge. David Ortiz delivered his latest big hit, too, sending this bearded band of Red Sox back to Fenway Park with a chance to clinch their third crown in a decade. Not since 1918 has Boston won the title at its own ballpark. John Lackey gets the first chance Wednesday night against St. Louis rookie sensation Michael Wacha. A Cardinals win would set up a most spooky proposition for both teams – Game 7 on Halloween night. Ortiz enjoyed even more success in Game 5 after moving from the cleanup spot to the third slot. He is 11 for 15 (.733) in this Series with two homers, six RBIs and four walks. Lester enhanced his reputation as an October ace with every pitch. He allowed one run

Nearly the same line he had in beating Wainwright in the opener. “I think the biggest thing is me and Rossy have had a good rhythm,” Lester said. “Early on, we just went back to our game plan from Game 1 and just fell back on that and really just tried to make them swing the bats early, and we were able to do that.” The lefty who’s won all three

of his career World Series starts had just one scary inning, when Matt Holliday homered in the fourth, Carlos Beltran flied out to the wall and Yadier Molina hit a liner. Other than that, Lester was sharp as a knife. “He’s just a stud,” said Ross, the backup catcher who gets paired with Lester. “We rely on him. That’s why he’s the ace of our staff, because he goes out and pitches like that.” Lester’s biggest brush with major trouble came well before

his first pitch. He was getting loose near the warning track when a team of eight Clydesdales pulling a beer wagon came trotting by – it’s a Busch Stadium tradition and Lester stood aside to watch the horses. Koji Uehara closed for his second save. No crazy endings this time, either, following one night with an obstruction call and the next with Uehara’s game-finishing pickoff. Ortiz put the Red Sox ahead with an RBI double in the first, hitting the first pitch after Dustin Pedroia doubled on an 0-2 curve. Ross, a graybeard on a team led by scraggly veterans, broke a 1-all tie when he hooked a drive just inside the left-field line, and the ball bounced into the seats for a go-ahead double. “How about that? It’s nice to drive in runs,” Ross said. “I’ve got to credit the guys in front of me.” Jacoby Ellsbury later hit an RBI single, and Ross was thrown out at the plate trying to score on the play. A day after Ortiz delivered a stirring, in-game pep talk to rev up the Red Sox, the Cardinals could’ve used some inspiration from Big Papi. That, or at least a visit from the good-luck Rally Squirrel from their 2011 title run.

NASCAR SPRINT CUP

Bowyer looking past Richmond mess By JENNA FRYER

SPRINT CUP SERIES AAA Texas 500 Race time: 2 p.m. Sunday Site: Texas Motor Speedway, Fort Worth, Texas TV: ESPN, WatchESPN

The Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Clint Bowyer fielded fan questions for nearly 30 minutes Monday at the NASCAR Hall of Fame, where the topics covered everything from his recent appearance on an episode of “Duck Dynasty” to his displeasure with people who text while driving. Not a single person asked him about Richmond. Finally, nearly two months after Bowyer spun late in the race that set the field for the Sprint Cup-deciding Chase, the scandal is finally fading into his rearview mirror. His actions in the Sept. 7 race triggered a massive chain reaction that knocked the wind out of NASCAR as it headed into its championship portion of the season. Michael Waltrip Racing was crippled with the loss of a longtime sponsor, and Martin Truex Jr. and 15 percent of the MWR workforce were given pink slips. Bowyer, one of the most popular drivers inside the garage, suddenly found he was considered Public Enemy No. 1 among a fan base that only in the last few years had begun to appreciate his talent and humor. “I was in middle of a storm, certain kind of storm. A four-lettered storm is what I’d call that,” Bowyer said Monday. It took a toll on the freewheeling country boy from Kansas. He was second in the points heading into the Richmond race and thought he’d challenge for a championship this year. Then came the fallout from Richmond, where NASCAR said MWR deliberately manipulated the finish of the race in an attempt to get Truex into the 12-driver Chase field. He said he quickly figured out the final laps at Richmond had created a firestorm that wasn’t going away anytime soon. “I didn’t that night. But then [figured out] ‘this is not good,’ ” Bowyer said. “I was imme-

8BRIEF Vickers intent on racing at start of 2014 MARTINSVILLE, Va. – Brian Vickers feels healthy enough to race. If he could promise his doctors he wouldn’t crash, he’d be in the car Sunday. Vickers was diagnosed with a blood clot in his right calf Oct. 14. He has been sidelined for the final five races of the season because he’s taking blood thinners. He said Sunday that if he crashed, the thinners would make it impossible for doctors to stop internal bleeding. – Wire report

Denny Hamlin (11) and Jimmie Johnson (48) lead the field to start the NASCAR Sprint Cup race Sunday at Martinsville Speedway in Martinsville, Va. diately crushed because of the sport and what I care and believe about this sport. It was tough.” The Chase was effectively over for Bowyer before it began. He opened with a ninthplace finish at Chicago, where points leader Matt Kenseth won, and was 17th the next week at New Hampshire, where Kenseth won again. Just like that, Bowyer was 10th in the standings and out of the title hunt. He acknowledged Monday the Richmond drama “definitely” contributed to the No. 15 team stumbling out of the gate. Bowyer wasn’t the same off the track, either. Dale Earnhardt Jr. noted last month that it had been difficult to watch Bowyer suffer through the backlash from fans. “Clint is a good guy and obviously was just following orders,” Earnhardt said. “He did some things that were out of character and regrettable, and he feels terrible to have any in-

volvement in it. I know that for a fact. I know that to be genuine. It’s been tough watching him go through that process, too, because he’s not that kind of guy to go starting that kind of mess.” Bowyer said he read things about himself over the last seven weeks, heard things on the radio, and learned to bite his tongue. “Out of respect and understanding the magnitude of the situation, I never would have dreamed in a million years that would have escalated into what it did, it was a bad deal,” Bowyer said. “Hardest thing I’ve ever been through in this sport, but certainly not the hardest thing I’ve been through in my life. It was tough to listen to those things for a while. It’s not like me to just keep my mouth shut. I wanted to bite back, but certainly, again, respected the situation. I understood the magnitude of it and knew I was part of it and didn’t want to be.”

It’s the third time since 2010 that Bowyer’s title chances were yanked out from underneath him in the blink of an eye. He opened the 2010 Chase with a win at New Hampshire that vaulted him from 12th to second in the standings. Then NASCAR ruled his car was illegal, docked him 150 points, and the lengthy appeal process wore down his race team. Richard Childress Racing never got the points back, but it didn’t matter, anyway. Bowyer finished 25th and 15th in the two races after New Hampshire and spent the entire Chase trying not to finish last in the field. Last year, Bowyer used a win at Charlotte at the midpoint of the Chase to move to fourth, then close to third in the standings with the leaders in sight with two races remaining. But an angry Jeff Gordon chose the penultimate race to settle a vendetta and deliberately wrecked Bowyer late in the race at Phoenix.

FOOTBALL NOTES

Insider DeKalb’s seniors showing leadership seniors: When quarterback Mike

By ROSS JACOBSON

A closer look at the prep football scene

UNDER THE RADAR MIKE KUHN Genoa-Kingston, sr., WR Kuhn hauled in a 44-yard touchdown in Genoa-Kingston’s Week 9 victory over Marengo.

STATS OF THE WEEK 3: Years since previous playoff berth for Genoa-Kingston and DeKalb. 30: Combined rushing touchdowns for DeKalb’s Dre Brown and Jack Sauter, including six in the Barbs’ Week 9 win over Rochelle.

POWER RANKINGS 1. Sycamore (9-0) Spartans complete perfect regular season 2. Kaneland (8-1) Knights showed no hangover effect from first loss 3. Genoa-Kingston (5-4) Cogs left no doubt in win over Marengo 4. DeKalb (5-4) Barbs hung on for crucial win over Rochelle 5. Hiawatha (3-6) End of stellar career for QB Mike Mercado

rjacobson@shawmedia.com From the first drive of the game to the last, DeKalb’s seniors played like a group well aware of the fact that this was potentially the last time they’d play on their home field. It started with quarterback Jack Sauter, who racked up a game-high 254 yards of offense and three rushing touchdowns. Two of those scores came on perfectly executed read-option plays with junior running Dre Brown that Sauter took untouched to the end zone. “He played like a senior,” Brown put it simply. It looked like Sauter would drive the Barbs down the field every time he touched the ball, but he had to rely on his defense to seal the game. Tanner Pumfrey was the one to do it with a clutch interception in the final minute. “That’s huge,” head coach Matt Weckler said of the play. “And you know what’s even better? It was a senior. Tanner Pumfrey steps back, drops and makes a play at the end.” Earlier in the season, several players mentioned a lack of leadership and discipline a season ago. This year’s seniors are show-

Offense clicks with Feuerbach: Sycamore’s offense didn’t miss a beat with NIck Feuerbach at quarterback on Friday. Feuerbach, who came in after Devin Mottet left with an injury in the Spartans’ win at Kaneland Oct. 18, started his first game of the season at Yorkville with Mottet still out. Feuerbach, a senior, went 7 of 8 for 202 yards and three touchdown passes, two of them to Ben Niemann and the other to Jake Winters. Sycamore coach Joe Ryan

Continued from page B1 Without their four longest runs, which have totaled 205 yards, Bears running backs (Matt Forte and Michael Bush) have averaged only 2.7 yards on 136 carries. On the defensive side, Trestman says: “There are teams that are hurting in different places throughout the league and they’re finding a way to play a complete game in there and they’re creating momentum and winning. So, I think the No. 1 way we can improve is by guys just paying attention to their job and not trying to make up for a younger guy or trying to do too much.” Although the Bears did sign veteran linebacker Larry Grant, the coaches know there aren’t many reinforcements waiting in the wings. Asked about a change at safety, Trestman responded, “I would say we are going with the guys we have at the present time and that would be obviously Major (Wright) and Chris (Conte).” The other big question that needs to be answered on defense is whether it will be Jon Bostic or James Anderson stepping into the Lance Briggs’ leadership role. “We’re still working through that. It could be either guy,” Trestman said. “As we get closer, we get into the start of this thing. … We’ve talked about both of them. They’re certainly both capable of doing it and we’ll see where that goes. We’ll know a lot more about that on Thursday as we finalize the game plan.” There is little question that a bye is always a good thing in the NFL, not just to refocus but also to heal up all the bumps and bruises. But more than that, for this Bears team, now is the time to take a look around and see what the team is made of.

Careers end for Hiawatha’s

All local teams showing progress from 2012 season Before the season started, I predicted that all five teams would match or improve upon their regular-season records from 2012. Four of five ain’t bad. The progress from every team was obvious over the last nine weeks. While our local schools mostly struggled in 2012, there were very few weeks where any of our five teams were heavy underdogs in 2013. While Hiawatha was the only team not to make the playoffs,

VIEWS Ross Jacobson things may have been different if the Hawks had been able to stay healthy. After a 3-1 start, they struggled down the stretch and much of that had to do with the Hawks’ consistent lineup shuffling. Injury issues also hurt Kaneland, which still managed an

wasn’t sure if Mottet would be back for the first round of the playoffs. The Spartans look like they’ll be in good shape no matter who is under center. “We have a luxury, there’s no doubt about it,” Ryan said. “To have the two quarterbacks that we have, we’re lucky. We’re really lucky.” Starting linebacker Brett Weaver also sat out Friday’s game with an undisclosed injury. Ryan was unsure about his situation for the first round.

Mercado and his six fellow Hiawatha seniors were sophomores, they didn’t win a game, but that didn’t stop the Hawks from hoping for a playoff berth in 2012. In 2012, the Hawks lost their last five games of the season after starting 3-1, but that still didn’t discourage the group. Finally, those seven Hawks ended their careers last Friday, their ultimate goal of making the playoffs unfulfilled after another 3-1 start. But despite their lack of a winning season, coach Sean Donnelly views this group as a special one. “You get certain groups that come around that are special and they mean something to you, and this is one of those groups that I’m lucky to have had here,” Donnelly said. “To be honest with you, it’s all off-the-field stuff that makes them special, and one of those groups that just means so much. They’ve meant a lot in my personal life and things like that, and that’s what’s made them so special, more than just the football side of things.”

chance to be as good as he was in MVP season I’m trying to picture Derrick Rose faxing a news release that announces his comeback, but it’s impossible. He seems too self-effacing, and he probably thinks the fax machine and the Pony Express are from the same era, which, by the way, they are. Since the NBA schedule came out in early August, we’ve known that Rose would make his looooonnnnnggggg-awaited return to real action Tuesday night, in the Bulls’ season opener against the Heat in Miami. No surprise. It’s akin to the news that Christmas will fall on Dec. 25 this year. So let’s not confuse Rose’s reappearance with the second coming of Michael Jordan, which shouldn’t be confused with the third coming of MJ, that sad stopover in, Washington D.C. we’d all

Rick Morrissey rather forget. We had little inkling that March 18, 1995, would be different from any other day, until Jordan’s agent faxed one of the most famous statements in Chicago sports history: “I’m back.” Jordan was done with baseball and suddenly, stunningly ready to rejoin the Bulls. The darkness lifted. Three more NBA championships would follow. But I think we all can agree that Rose’s return is the biggest comeback in Chicago since Jordan tacitly admitted he couldn’t hit a curveball. And surely we can agree this moment is very, very cool. There might even be some thawing among the people who turned on Rose last season when he refused to play on his surgically repaired left knee. I’ll admit to something now that doesn’t normally happen: I’ve changed my mind. Or, to be more precise,

8-1 record. The Knights had to replace RB Jesse Balluff, who tore an ACL, and make a couple minor changes along the offensive line late in the year. Sycamore and DeKalb both made three-win jumps and Genoa-Kingston had a two-win improvement. The area has four playoff teams for the first time since 2010. Kaneland and Sycamore are primed for long playoff runs once again while G-K and DeKalb are both candi-

dates to pull a first-round upset. High school sports success can be cyclical. But for now the state of DeKalb County football is good. And we haven’t even talked about that team at Huskie Stadium.

the biggest since MJ’s

Rose has changed my mind about the Bulls this season. The about-face is based on … I’m having trouble spitting out the words … eight preseason games. Crazy, I know. Preseason games have the weight and meaning of navel lint. But what I’ve seen from Rose in the preseason makes me believe the Bulls are better than the Pacers and have enough talent to give the two-time defending champion Heat reason to worry. Eight preseason games? Perhaps I have lost my mind. But it looks as if Rose’s knees can carry an entire team. How he played in the preseason games has ratcheted up the anticipation for Tuesday’s game. If you saw the explosiveness his legs produced this month, you know the preseason games weren’t meaningless. They went beyond offering peace of mind. They let you know he was the best player on the floor in each of those games, the way he used to be. He’s going to get better the more he plays with his teammates.

I didn’t expect this when camp opened. I expected lots of rust. I expected kinks in need of being worked out. Turns out my expectations were dumb and dumber. Have you seen Rose rocket to the rim lately? It’s why the excitement for Tuesday night is off-thecharts ridiculous. He has the chance to be as good as he was in his MVP season of 2010-11. Just to be clear: a chance. Here are three caveats for the Bulls this season, none having to do with Rose’s leg falling off: • Joakim Noah has to stay healthy. It sounds simple, yet it has been anything but. He has had just one injury-free season in the past four – the 2011-12 lockout-shortened edition. When Rose and Noah are on the court together, the Bulls usually win. Noah will play Tuesday if his groin injury cooperates. • Somebody has to score besides Rose, Carlos Boozer and Luol Deng. Same as it ever was. Let’s say Rose matches his MVP season by averaging 25 points a game, and Boozer and Luol Deng

each averages 16 points a game. Where are the Bulls? Stuck in 2010-11, unless other players step up offensively. I’m talking to you Jimmy Butler, Taj Gibson and Noah. • Coach Tom Thibodeau has to ease up on his troops. Loading players with heavy minutes in the regular season is counterproductive. This isn’t the ranting of a columnist. It’s a self-evident truth. The Bulls have been worn down every postseason under Thibodeau. But enough of that for now. Fresh slate, and all that. Butler has gotten better every season, and there’s no reason to think that’s going to stop in his third year in the league. Mike Dunleavy is going to be Kyle Korver but perhaps without Korver’s ability to run around screens as quickly. The point guard figures to be pretty good. The team had Rose’s back last season. Now it’s his turn to give back.

Young and Hayes led Spartans with six and five kills • VOLLEYBALL Continued from page B1 A kill from Emily Young and a tip from Kendra Larson closed out game one for Sycamore, which only recorded four hitting errors in the first game. “We could’ve practiced, but at this point in the season ... it’s just nice to have to say ‘Hey, this is what we have to do today,’ ” Nore said. “ ‘Let’s come out, we have to

play.’ ” Sandwich battled Sycamore in Game 2, tying the Spartans, 8-8, on consecutive kills from Ashley Jones. But Sycamore sided out on a kill from Young and then Young followed with four consecutive aces. “When we’re serving really well, we’re a really good team I think,” Dailey said. “That’s when we’re at our strongest, when we’re serving at our best.” Sycamore wouldn’t relinquish

the lead and the Spartans closed out the match in two games, even getting valuable playing time for its younger players off the bench in the match’s closing points. Young led the Spartans with six kills while Mattie Hayes recorded five. Larson also dished out 18 assists for Sycamore, which won 12 of the final 18 points. “It’s a good situation to be on an upswing right now,” Nore said. “It’s all about now. Can you hit the right stride at the right time?”

Genoa-Kingston knows Bobcats will be the toughest test of tournament • SOCCER Continued from page B1 “Early in the year, we weren’t quite ready, we weren’t playing as well as we could have,” junior Bob-

by Nay said. “Now, late in the season, being this far, we’ve really pulled together as a team … I don’t know if we expected to do as well as we have this year, but we thought we could do well.”

The Cogs (16-6-1) know the Bobcats (22-2), who beat Hinckley-Big Rock in the regional final, will be their toughest test of the tournament. “They’re a very good defensive team and they’re well-balanced,” Tate said.

“I didn’t see too many weak spots on their team.” But Tate isn’t surprised his team reached this point. Since very early, a trip to state was always a goal for the Cogs. “Our goal was to get to

state, that’s what we said at the beginning,” Tate said. “We’ve been taking it one step at a time. It was great to win sectional, but we really want to win the super-sectional. That’s been our main goal all season.”


ADVICE & PUZZLES

Retailers share advice in dealing with kids Dear Abby: I managed a retail store for 10 years, and I can relate to the shop owner who signed herself “Had It With Overindulged Kids” (June 28). She could turn things around by creating a designated play area and market to the children by taking any opened items and placing them there for a children’s testing ground. I had a “play table” with toys to keep them busy while their moms shopped. I put a gated area around it and a dads’ bench in front of it so they could watch the children. They are your customers. So cater to them and be thankful the parents shop in your store. Learn the children’s names and suggest new age-appropriate products. If you don’t have the time, hire someone who loves children and has the patience to play with them in a controlled environment. – Joyce From Michigan

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips Dear Joyce: Thank you for the helpful advice. Customers and retailers alike shared their experiences. Many of them questioned whether the children always misbehaved this badly in public and blamed their behavior on today’s parenting skills – or lack thereof. Here’s a sampling: Dear Abby: I shopped at a local store for years, but gave up when the place seemed overrun by unruly children and distracted parents. Out of desperation, I took a job there and vowed to find a way to make the parents rein in their youngsters. One: I posted a sign that read, “IF YOU BREAK IT, YOU BOUGHT IT.” If they

refused, I didn’t push the issue, but I did gesture upward. They would always look up, and when they did, I’d thank them for smiling at our cameras. Two: Any child found unaccompanied would be escorted to our customer service area and the parents paged repeatedly until they showed up. Since I instituted these policies, the condition of the store has improved, the morale of the employees has improved, sales have risen, and old customers who left due to the old circumstances are returning. – Survivor Of Retail Hell Dear Abby: I was in a shop where a sign behind the counter read: “Unattended Children Will Be Sold!” It was enough to get most parents’ (and kids’) attention while eliciting smiles at the same time. – Nonna Of Five Dear Abby: You mentioned posting a sign at the cash reg-

ister. No, Abby, it should be at the entrance, so parents see it at the time they walk in. Or how about a different sign: “Well-Behaved Children Will Win a Prize,” then rewarding such children with a small gift? It would be worth the expense of small tokens of appreciation compared to the cost of broken merchandise. I sympathize with “Had It.” Parents often take kids on outings, believing they’re spending quality time with them. But I see parents ignore their children and spend their time on electronic gadgets, leaving the unsupervised youngsters to run amok. Too bad for the children. – Gloria in Lafayette, Calif. Dear Abby: I like the sign a friend of mine put up in her store: “Unattended children will be given espresso and a puppy and returned to their parents.” – Marjory in Blowing Rock, N.C.

Dear Abby: I owned a small business with designated play areas for many years. One mom came in repeatedly with her two small sons, who were completely unruly and disruptive. I spoke to her several times, but I was wasting my breath. Here’s how I solved the problem: When Mom checked out, I added the items the terrible twosome destroyed to her bill. When I told her how much she owed, she insisted it must be a mistake. I said, “No mistake; these items belong to your kids.” She paid the bill and remained a customer, but the kids were never with her again. – Had Enough, Gainesville, Fla. • Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

‘Almost anxiety’ is treated with diet, sleep Dear Dr. K: I’ve always worried a lot. I saw a psychologist, but she said I didn’t have anxiety disorder, so she couldn’t help. I can’t believe there’s nothing to do. Can you help? Dear Reader: I don’t agree with your doctor. I’ve talked before in this space about how doctors typically define diseases by how they appear in their most extreme form. I call it the “tip of the iceberg” phenomenon. Doctors have certain criteria for what constitutes an anxiety disorder. I assume your doctor has checked those criteria and decided that you don’t have enough of them to “qualify” for the diagnosis. You may not have an anxiety disorder, but it sounds as though the nagging, worri-

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff some thoughts in your mind may be distracting you from the positive, enjoyable experiences all around you. If so, there are ways to help you. There’s a newly emerging term for this gray zone that falls between “normal” anxiety and a full-blown anxiety disorder. It’s called “almost anxiety.” In their illuminating new book, “Almost Anxious,” my Harvard Medical School colleague Dr. Luana Marques with Eric Metcalf explore the idea of almost anxiety and introduce a set of skills you can use to keep it at bay. (You can find out more about the book on

my website.) As discussed in “Almost Anxious,” the first needs that usually go unanswered when people are stressed are the things that actually keep anxiety at bay. These include proper nutrition, sleep and exercise. You may see how these things could be good for your health in general, yet doubt that they could affect anxiety. You shouldn’t doubt it: They can help. Let’s start with nutrition. People who are a little anxious tend to reach for unhealthy “comfort” food. Or they completely avoid food, skipping meals or even fasting. The healthier road – and one that will also help tame your anxiety – is to eat wholesome foods on a regular schedule. How does nutrition help fight “almost

anxiety”? It may be as simple as this: An unhealthy diet contributes to feeling unwell – and then worrying that you may have a serious disease, such as an undiagnosed cancer. Next on the list is sleep. Being sleep-deprived can significantly raise your anxiety level. But there’s good scientific evidence that good sleep can help control anxiety. If you have trouble falling or staying asleep, try the following: • Use your bed for sleep and sex only. • Get out of bed if you can’t fall asleep after 20 minutes. • Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day. • Don’t nap during the day. • Don’t drink alcohol close to bedtime. Finally, get regular

exercise. Simply moving at a moderate pace has a big effect on anxiety. Aim for 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise five days a week. We don’t understand just how it is that regular exercise reduces anxiety, but there is good scientific evidence that it does. Just deciding to take action to deal with your anxious feelings is itself therapeutic. Being “almost anxious” can interfere with your life, but there are simple and natural (and inexpensive) ways to treat the condition.

8CROSSWORD

BRIDGE Phillip Alder

Do not risk your contract Our friend A.N. Other said, “Don’t gamble unless you can afford to lose, and if you can afford to lose, you don’t have to gamble.” At the bridge table, unless you are playing in a pair event, where overtricks can be valuable, do not gamble your contract. Just take the guaranteed line to get home. Today’s deal would not only snare gamblers, but would also catch out those who play too quickly at trick one. The bidding went off the rails slightly when it did not end in three no-trump. South was propelled into five clubs. After West guessed well to lead a diamond, what should declarer have done? North’s two-heart bid was fourth-suit game-forcing. His three-club continuation was reasonable because six clubs could have been a good contract if South had, say, 4-3-1-5 shape. But over South’s three hearts, North should have bid three no-trump. With only one top loser, the trump ace, it looks safe to take the diamond finesse at trick one. However, if East wins and shifts to a heart, suddenly five clubs has no chance. Instead, South should win the first trick with dummy’s ace and attack trumps. Let’s assume East takes the second round and switches to a heart. Declarer wins with his ace, unblocks dummy’s two spades, plays a trump to his hand, discards dummy’s remaining hearts on his acejack of spades, ruffs the heart jack on the board, and claims, conceding one diamond and one club.
