Team to oversee city center project DeKalb mayor to pick members of project management group By DEBBIE BEHRENDS dbehrends@shawmedia.com DeKALB – A group of local leaders will be assigned the task of coming up with a new direction for an underutilized part of DeKalb at today’s DeKalb City Council meeting. Mayor John Rey plans to appoint himself along with 10 others to an ad hoc committee called the DeKalb City Center Project Management Team.

“This committee will oversee the components of the next phase of downtown development,” Rey said. “My goal is to see them strike public and private partnerships wherever those opportunities may exist.” Committee members will include top city officials, leaders at local banks, foundations and NIU officials. Rey and Northern Illinois University President Doug Baker announced plans at the Aug. 1

velopment on Lincoln Highway,” Rey said. Committee appointees will be Rudy Espiritu, DeKalb’s interim city manager; Rachel Xidis, Ellwood House Association board of directors; Mark Smirz, president of the DeKalb Chamber of Commerce; Tim Lehan, Lehan Drugs and Medical Supplies; Michael Cullen, National Bank & Trust Company; Frank Roberts, Castle Bank; Jerry Blakemore, NIU legal counsel; Jennifer Groce, NIU

state of the city address to work together to make downtown DeKalb more engaging and attractive. Rey said it will be up to the committee to review and prioritize plans for the proposed DeKalb City Center. Initially, the focus will be on the area of Lincoln Highway between the NIU lagoon and First Street, he said. “One of the projects that I’m sure will come to the table early on is the Pearl Street Shodeen de-

Center for Governmental Studies; Bill Nicklas, NIU Community Affairs; and Sandra Polanco, NIU, Affirmative Action. Rey said he has asked Roberts to lead the committee. “Our charge from the mayor is to prioritize projects and initiatives within the updated City Center plan, and make recommendations to the council for the continued redevelopment of

‘WE ARE BLESSED TO BE HERE IN THIS COUNTRY’

Rendering laurels and thanks

Farmers pull out of conservation By JIM SUHR The Associated Press COBDEN – For all its scenic splendor in a mostly pancake-flat state, southern Illinois can be a hassle for farmers. The soil isn’t as fertile as up north, and the hilly terrain lends itself to erosion. That’s why so many farmers, like others across the Corn Belt, set aside much of their land years ago to a federal program that paid them to keep it idle in the spirit of conservation. At a time when corn prices were flagging, it simply made sense, giving farmers guaranteed income that helped them cover property taxes and other farm costs. But that has changed with America’s increasing demand for ethanol, the fuel additive that since 2010 has been the nation’s top use for corn. The government’s push for green energy has changed both the economics and the land of southern Illinois. Farmers are planting more corn in this area known as “Little Egypt” for its place between the Ohio and Mississippi rivers and the town of Cairo on the state’s southernmost tip. In the 10 southern Illinois counties that lost the most conservation land since 2006, the disappearance amounts to more than 43,000 acres, a space bigger than St. Louis. The pullback from the Conservation Reserve Program has paid off for farmers like Bill Bass, who is unapologetic about what he calls his “unbelievable, astronomical” yields of corn and soybeans on hundreds of acres he farms. Much of it is property that Bass sharecrops with retired farmer Collin Boyd, who pulled it out of conservation in recent years and threw it back into production. Neighbors in Union County, along the Mississippi, have done the same, returning nearly 4,200 acres of conservation land to farmland since

By FELIX SARVER fsarver@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – Army Staff Sgt. Robert Martinez watched his daughter grow up in part through pictures sent to him while he was fighting in Iraq in 2003 and Afghanistan in 2006. Martinez told a crowd of Sycamore High School students he joined the military to protect his family and others who could not protect their own. Despite extended absences from his family and other hardships throughout his time in the military, he continued to carry out his duties. “We are blessed to be here in this country,” he said. “It allows us complete control over our lives. We can worship how we

choose, vote for our leaders and educate everyone.” Martinez was one of several veterans who shared their stories with students Monday at the school. School officials hosted several ceremonies and talks at the school to teach students why “freedom isn’t free,” and it was one of the many events planned

Ill. man’s WWII diary goes online By TIM MITCHELL The Associated Press CHAMPAIGN – Veteran Charles F. “Chick” Bruns of Champaign wrote a “blog” during World War II. Only now is it being published. And with the help of a website created by his son, readers can follow along – 70 years later – with daily entries in his diary, as his unit served in north Africa and Europe, until the war’s end. Bruns’ son, Cissna Park farmer John Bruns, has repurposed the diary into a website, www.70yearsago.com “My father is blogging from the past,” John Bruns said. Chick Bruns, 94, a graduate of Holy Cross School and Champaign High School, had been selling clothing at Joseph Kuhn & Co. in downtown Champaign when he decided to volunteer for a year of duty with the U.S. Army. Before that year was up, the U.S. had entered World War II, and Bruns found himself among the first servicemen headed as part of the Third Infantry Division for the invasion of Africa in the fall of 1942. Bruns and the rest of his unit hit the beaches about 20 miles from Casablanca. Since Bruns’ unit were combat engineers who did everything from building roads to defusing enemy mines, Bruns rode a truck as the Army moved across the deserts of north Africa. “It was very different from working at Joseph Kuhn & Co.,” he said. Bruns began a diary, where he noted his experiences and emotions each day of the war, from Africa to Sicily, Italy, France, Germany and Austria. “A lot of that diary was scribbled as I tried to keep track of what happened,” Chick Bruns said. Shortly after arriving in Africa, his ship sank, taking most of his personal possessions. But Bruns happened to keep that notebook and a camera with him when the ship sank, allowing him to document his daily thoughts and experiences until

WASHINGTON – Five years after a global financial crisis erupted, the world’s biggest economies still need to be propped up. They’re growing and hiring a little faster and creating more jobs, but only with extraordinary aid from central banks or government spending. And economists say major countries may need help for years more. From the United States to Europe to Japan, central banks are pumping cash into economies and keeping loan rates near record lows. For now, thanks in part to the intervention, the world economy is improving. The International Monetary Fund expects global growth to rise to 3.6 percent in 2014 from 2.9 percent this year. Here’s a look at how the world’s major economies are faring:

UNITED STATES The U.S. economy grew at an unexpectedly solid 2.8 percent annual pace from July through September, though consumers and businesses slowed their spending. And U.S. employers added a surprising strong 204,000 jobs in October. Nariman Behravesh, chief economist at IHS Global Insight, thinks the

World War II veteran Charles F. “Chick” Bruns of Champaign looks Thursday at the medals and patches from his years in the U.S. Army. Bruns wrote a “blog” during World War II that is only now being published with the help of a website created by his son. Readers can follow along, 70 years later, with daily entries in his diary, as his unit served in north Africa and Europe, until the war’s end. after the German surrender in 1945. Bruns also sent frequent letters back home to his family in Champaign, keeping them up to date on his experiences. “I sent back letters as many times as I could,” Chick Bruns said. Long after the war ended, Chick Bruns would frequently tell his war tales to John and his brother, Charles Bruns Jr. John Bruns said those tales left a good impression upon him, and he thought his father’s experiences should be shared with the public. So John Bruns began transcribing Chick Bruns’ diary with the intention of converting the text into a book. Since some of the copy was written in pencil on onionskin paper, John met with his dad a couple times a month to ensure accuracy. “I sent inquiries to different publishers and never got any interest in a book,

so I decided to go in another direction,” John Bruns said. When the elder Bruns took part in an Honor Flight last year to the World War II Memorial in Washington, it occurred to John Bruns that October 2012 would be 70 years from the date that his father began his diary. “I saw that the domain name 70yearsago.com was available, and off I went,” John Burns said. Presented in a blog format, each day the site includes what Chick Bruns wrote and photos he took, along with newspaper articles and historic references. John Bruns said the site allows viewers to experience what his father did in the war in real time. “He was writing with the blog format back then,” John Bruns said. “You could say he was a man ahead of his time.”

World economy being sustained by aid The ASSOCIATED PRESS

U.S. economy will be strong enough to manage without any help from Fed bond purchases by the end of 2014. He sees the Fed raising short-term rates, which it’s kept at a record low near zero since late 2008, sometime in 2015. But weaning the U.S. economy off Fed support, he says, is “tricky ... If you do it too slowly, you could ignite inflation. If you do it too quickly, you run the risk of killing the recovery.”

EUROPE After enduring two recessions since 2009, the 17 countries that use the euro currency are expected to eke out their second straight quarter of growth from July through September. But many economists say the eurozone’s growth might not meet even the feeble 0.3 percent quarterly pace achieved from April through June. The latest quarterly figure will be announced Thursday. The European Central Bank surprised investors last week by cutting its benchmark refinancing rate to a record 0.25 percent. It acted after economic reports exposed the weakness of the recovery. Inflation last month was a scant 0.7 percent. That raised the risk of deflation – a prolonged drop in wages, prices and the value of assets like stocks and homes.

The rate cut “signals that the ECB is not prepared to accept the risk that the euro area falls into deflation,” says Jacob Kirkegaard, senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics.

JAPAN Japan’s economic recovery has gained momentum since Prime Minister Shinzo Abe took office in late 2012. Under “Abenomics,” the government and central bank have injected money into the economy through stimulus spending and rate cutting. The economy grew at a robust 3.8 percent annual rate from April through June. But economists worry about whether the recovery can be sustained and whether Japan can grow enough to make up in tax revenue what it’s spending on stimulus. Noriko Hama, a professor at Kyoto’s Doshisha University, contends that only higher wages and rates will give people the income and confidence they need to spend more and restore the economy’s health. Like the Fed, the Bank of Japan could struggle with how to time and carry out a reversal of its easy money policy once the economy improves or if inflation or asset bubbles emerge as a threat.

Military suicides drop by more than 22 percent this year By LOLITA C. BALDOR The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Suicides across the military have dropped by more than 22 percent this year, defense officials said, amid an array of new programs targeting what the Defense Department calls an epidemic that took more service members’ lives last year than the war in Afghanistan did during that same period. Military officials, however, were reluctant to pin the decline on the broad swath of de-

tection and prevention efforts, acknowledging that they still don’t fully understand why troops take their own lives. And since many of those who have committed suicide in recent years had never served on the warfront, officials also do not attribute the decrease to the end of the Iraq war and the drawdown in Afghanistan. Still, they offered some hope that after several years of studies, the escalating emphasis on prevention across all the services may finally be taking hold. With two months to go in

this calendar year, defense officials say there have been 245 suicides by active-duty service members as of Oct. 27. At the same time last year there had already been 316. Each of the military services has seen the total go down this year, ranging from an 11 percent dip in the Marine Corps to a 28 percent drop for the Navy. The Air Force had a 21 percent decline, while Army totals fell by 24 percent. The officials provided the data to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they were not autho-

rized to disclose it publicly. Last year the number of suicides in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines spiked to 349 for the full 12-month period, the highest since the Pentagon began closely tracking the numbers in 2001, and up from the 2011 total of 301. There were 295 Americans killed in Afghanistan last year, by the AP’s count. Military suicides began rising in 2006 and soared to a then-record 310 in 2009 before leveling off for two years. Alarmed defense officials launched an intensified cam-

paign to isolate the causes that lead to suicide, and develop programs to eliminate the stigma associated with seeking help and encourage troops to act when their comrades appeared troubled. The Pentagon increased the number of behavioral health care providers by 35 percent over the past 3 years and embedded more of them in front-line units. It also beefed up training, expanded crisis phone lines and delivered more than 75,000 gun locks to the services to distribute.

Report: Studying abroad up Record number of international students hit U.S. By KIMBERLY HEFLING The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Hundreds of thousands of Chinese students are flocking to U.S. colleges and universities, helping to drive the number of international students studying in America to record levels. Similarly, all-time high numbers of American students are studying abroad, although there are far fewer and they tend to do much shorter stints than students coming to the United States. The findings are in an analysis being released Monday that was conducted by a nonprofit group that worked with the State Department.

They say international education programs do more than advance cultural enrichment; they also are an economic boon to communities that host foreign students and to the students themselves, who improve their job competitiveness. Foreign students contribute about $24 billion annually to the U.S. economy and about two-thirds of them primarily pay their own way or their families do, according to the Institute of International Education and the State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. All told, 819,644 students came to the U.S. to study in the 2012-13 school year. The highest numbers were from

China, India, South Korea, Saudi Arabia and Canada. That’s a record high, with a 7 percent increase from a year earlier and 40 percent from more than a decade ago. Despite the increases, international students make up less than 4 percent of all students. There was some slowdown in the number of students coming to the United States in the years after the Sept. 11 attacks, in part because of visa issues, but the number has since rebounded. About 235,000 of the international students were from China, a 21 percent increase. A burgeoning middle class combined with a view that America has quality colleges and universities were factors

cited as driving the demand. About one-third studied business and management once they arrived, the report said. “Chinese students and their parents are looking for high quality education, get the importance of international education, and it’s making America the No. 1 destination because we actually have the capacity to absorb international students,” said Allan Goodman, president and CEO of the institute. The number of students from Saudi Arabia studying in the United States jumped 30 percent, to 45,000. These students are largely funded by a Saudi government scholarship program nearly in its 10th year, the report said.

Sycamore woman navigates life with Kirkland librarian trains future Leader Dog support network By FELIX SARVER By DEBBIE BEHRENDS

fsarver@shawmedia.com

dbehrends@shawmedia.com KIRKLAND – The Kirkland Public Library has a new face – a furry one. Librarian Jan Miller and her husband, Steve, are training Banjo, a 5-monthold black Labrador retriever and potential future Leader Dog for the Blind. The couple has bred puppies for the program for about seven years, but this is the first puppy they’ve trained. As part of her obedience training, Banjo goes to work with Miller at the library on Mondays and Tuesdays. Library Director Linda Fett encouraged library board members to approve the arrangement, which they did. “The library board just told us to put the sign on the door in case a patron is afraid of dogs or has an allergy,” Fett said. Miller said patrons are invited to interact with Banjo – after asking permission. “If she’s going to be a Leader Dog, she has to learn to lie quietly under a desk,” Miller said. “She may be going to work with her owner, and she has to know how to behave.” Banjo also has gone shopping, visited restaurants and done other activities so she won’t fear those type of environments. “So far, the only thing she’s been afraid of is the open stairs at Cherry Vale Mall,” Miller said. “We had to carry her up the stairs, but she was able to go down.” Miller said she wants to

Jan Miller of Kirkland will spend about a year teaching basic obedience skills and how to socialize before Banjo will be paired with a vision-impaired person. take her on a train, too. “We are told not to take her on escalators or in revolving doors,” Miller said. “She could injure a paw or get her tail caught.” Along with attending an obedience class at Kanosak Canine Training in Maple Park, they receive weekly emails from Leader Dogs with very specific guidance for Banjo’s training, Miller said. She also gets advice occasionally from a patron who has a service dog. Bonnie Lorensen is on her fourth dog, a golden Lab named Olive from Guiding Eyes for the Blind.

“I think I got my first dog in 2002,” Lorensen said. “I love going to the library and hearing about Banjo.” When she’s about 14 months old, Banjo will be turned over to Leader Dogs for the Blind in Rochester Hills, Mich. There, her training will be geared more specifically to becoming a Leader Dog. Not all dogs turned over to the organization become Leader Dogs. She said some go on to become drug-sniffing dogs or companions for autistic children. “It will be tough to give her up,” Miller said, stroking Banjo’s head. “We love her.”

What to do when you meet a Leader Dog n Ask the owner’s permission before touching the dog or making eye contact. n Approach the person from the right as the dog is usually on the left. n Never startle the person by grabbing his or her arm. n Do not take hold of the dog or its harness. n Never offer food to the dog.

SYCAMORE – Allison Stahl is always pushing herself to be more independent. Stahl, a 31-year-old Sycamore resident, uses a wheelchair to get around because of her cerebral palsy, but she’s always striving to do more for herself. She works 12 to 16 hours a week at Walmart in DeKalb stocking shelves, and is a choreographer who teaches wheelchair ballet at Dance Dimensions in DeKalb. “It’s a way to have people understand me,” she said of dance. “It’s a way for me to be free.” Her caregivers have helped her participate in many activities throughout her life. She graduated from Sycamore High School in 2001 and remains active at Sycamore-based Opportunity House. Another group that helped her become more independent is her lifelong support network of about 11 friends and family, also known as a microboard. A microboard is a nonprofit association created to serve one person, according to the Illinois Association of Microboards and Cooperatives. The members of Stahl’s microboard, called Allison’s Awesome Blossom, help her through decision-making, although she ultimately decides her path. The microboard addresses the planning and support needs of a vulnerable person by empowering them, said Pam Kitterman, Stahl’s mother. Aside from helping her ob-

Quinn visits promote veterans lottery ticket SPRINGFIELD – Gov. Pat Quinn flew around Illinois Monday to highlight a new Illinois Lottery ticket meant to raise money for veterans’ programs. The governor announced the new $2 Veterans Cash ticket in Chicago on Monday. He followed that appearance with stops in Peoria, Milan and Rockford. The ticket is the latest in a lottery program that was launched

in 2006 and earmarks lottery proceeds for veterans. Quinn’s administration says that more than $11 million has been awarded to more than 210 veterans’ organizations statewide. The Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs receives the ticket proceeds. It uses the funds to provide grants for veterans’ job training, medical expenses, homelessness and long term care.

tain small items such as an iPhone 5, Stahl’s microboard has helped her hunt for an apartment, while her caregiver helped her with the paperwork. Although one place she found turned out to be unsuitable because it was too small, the search process is one example of how Stahl managed to achieve self-advocacy through a support network. “The microboard has really changed my life,” she said. Stahl shared her experiences using a microboard and promoted self-advocacy among people with disabilities Nov. 4 at the Speak Up and Speak Out Summit in Springfield. She said the conference, hosted by the Illinois Council on Developmental Disabilities, allowed her to “meet with neat people,” including Gov. Pat Quinn. Stahl was chosen to speak on a panel by a member of the Illinois Association of Microboards and Cooperatives. Before an audience of more than 50 people, Stahl spoke about self-advocacy. Kitterman, said the summit was a wonderful chance for her daughter to network with people and help others. “I was [pleasantly] surprised at how powerfully and eloquently she spoke at the panel,” Kitterman said. The conference was such a good experience for Stahl, she plans to continue to attend in years to come. Stahl said she’s still looking for an apartment. In the meantime, she continues to live with her parents, but she said she wants to be able to live independently without living too far from her family.

Survivors seek to flee typhoon zone The ASSOCIATED PRESS TACLOBAN, Philippines – Thousands of typhoon survivors swarmed the airport here Tuesday seeking a flight out, but only a few hundred made it, leaving behind a shattered, rain-lashed city short of food and water and littered with countless bodies. Four days after Typhoon Haiyan struck the eastern Philippines, assistance is only just beginning to arrive. Authorities estimated the storm killed 10,000 or more across a vast swath of the country, and displaced around 660,000 others. Tacloban, a city of about 220,000 people on Leyte island, bore the full force of the winds and the tsunami-like storm surges. Most of the city is in ruins, a tangled mess of destroyed houses, cars and trees. Malls, garages and shops have all been stripped of food and water by hungry residents. The United Nations said it had released $25 million in emergency funds and was launching an emergency appeal for money. Just after dawn Tuesday, two Philippine air force C-130s arrived at its destroyed airport along with several commercial and private flights. More than 3,000 people who camped out at the building surged onto the tarmac past a broken iron fence to get on the aircraft. Just a dozen soldiers and several police held them back. Mothers raised their babies high above their heads in the

Relief effort begins after typhoon UNITED STATES The U.S. government is organizing emergency shipments of critically needed material to provide shelter to the hundreds of thousands of displaced Filipinos and food and hygiene supplies to thousands of families. BRITAIN The United Kingdom is deploying a Royal Navy warship and donating roughly $16 million worth of humanitarian assistance in aid of the victims of the typhoon. Britain will also deploy Royal Air Force military transport aircraft to aid in recovery efforts, earmarking at least one C-17 cargo plane to move humanitarian aid and large equipment. AP photo

Residents queue up to receive treatment and relief supplies Monday at Tacloban airport after Typhoon Haiyan on Friday lashed this city and several provinces in the central Philippines. Typhoon-ravaged Philippine islands faced an unimaginably huge recovery effort that had barely begun Monday, as bloated bodies lay uncollected and uncounted in the streets and survivors pleaded for food, water and medicine. rain, in hopes of being prioritized. One woman in her 30s lay on a stretcher, shaking uncontrollably. Only a small number managed to board. “I was pleading with the soldiers. I was kneeling and begging because I have diabetes,” said Helen Cordial, whose house was destroyed in the storm. “Do they want me to die in this airport? They are stone hearted.” Most residents spent the night under pouring rain

wherever they could – in the ruins of destroyed houses, in the open along roadsides and shredded trees. Some slept under tents brought in by the government or relief groups. Local doctors said they were desperate for medicines. Beside the ruined airport tower, at a small makeshift clinic with shattered windows, army and air force medics said they had treated around 1,000 people since the typhoon for cuts, bruises, lacerations, deep

wounds. “It’s overwhelming,” said air force Capt. Antonio Tamayo. “We need more medicine. We cannot give anti-tetanus vaccine shots because we have none.” International aid groups and militaries are rushing assistance to the region, but little has arrived. Government officials and police and army officers have all been caught up in the disaster themselves, hampering coordination.

AUSTRALIA Australia announced assistance of $9.4 million. That includes the deployment of an emergency medical team, aid to the U.N. Flash Appeal and aid to Australian nongovernmental organizations for immediate life-saving assistance. JAPAN Japan will fly a 25-member relief team of mostly medical staff. TAIWAN Taiwan said it will send $200,000 in aid to help with relief efforts.

Continued from page A1 “We come out to honor a very special group of people that I call the real 1 percent in our country, which are those that really, really step up to defend our country in tough times,” Kinzinger said. Veterans and those who continue to serve in the military are true heroes who make sacrifices to protect people’s lives and freedoms, said Tim Carlson, Sycamore High School principal. They are unlike the athletes and celebrities students see all the time, he said. “They’ve delayed their education to serve,” he said. “They spend long periods of time separated from their families, … they spend time being in harm’s way. Families do not know if the next phone call or knock on the door will be an indication of their loved one’s demise.” Before an assembly where students and staff met with the veterans, they were invited to a ceremony outside the school where the flag was lowered to half-staff. Another ceremony was held where veterans and musicians led students throughout the school before

stopping by the school’s Freedom Isn’t Free wall display for a moment of silence. On the display are the photographs of veterans who attended Sycamore High School. Carlson said the newest addition to the display would be Milton “Pete” Knudson, a Sycamore High School graduate who enlisted in the military in 1941 and died during World War II. Army Sgt. Candace Oliver said she remembered having the day off from school on Veterans Day. Like Martinez, she said when she fought in Afghanistan she had to spend time away from her family. She said that at the time her daughter was confused about why her mother couldn’t be with her, but is learning about why soldiers like her must go elsewhere to fight. She said it’s important for schools to support veterans by recognizing Veterans Day. “It does make you a better person,” she said. Senior Alex Riley said it was good for the school to highlight the hardships of veterans. “I just think it’s really cool our school takes the time to honor the people who took the risk they made to preserve our way of life,” he said.

Ethanol, oil and what it means to be green The ASSOCIATED PRESS Q: What is the ethanol mandate? A: In 2007, Congress passed

AP photo

Bill Bass, 63, harvests corn Nov. 5 on acreage near the town of Cobden. Bass is among scores of farmers throughout Illinois and the rest of the nation’s Corn Belt who in recent years have benefited from pulling millions of acres of farmland out of a federal conservation program and putting it back into corn production, partly to profit from grain prices sent higher by America’s demand for ethanol.

Hard to specify how much ethanol accounts for spike in corn prices for the spike in corn prices – and how much those prices led to the Midwest land changes – as farmers enrolled in the conservation program weigh whether to stick with it, tying that property up for another decade or perhaps longer. In Wayne County, nearly 7,700 acres have been pulled out of the conservation program since 2006, and corn planting there has increased 60 percent over the same period. About 300 of those acres belong to Walt Townsend, leaving him with more than 100 still in conservation. But by 2016, he expects just 35 or so will remain in CRP.

• ETHANOL Continued from page A1 2006, the year before the ethanol mandate passed. Corn planting is up 33 percent over that period in a region that’s always been agriculturally eclectic, home to traditional cash crops, peach and apple orchards, vineyards and pumpkin farms. “The CRP saved a lot of people, and it had its place,” said Bass, 63. He asked, “Why shouldn’t the American farmer have more money in his pockets? Am I missing something?” It is impossible to specify how much ethanol accounts

a law requiring oil companies to blend corn ethanol into the gasoline supply. That requirement started at 9 billion gallons and has risen each year since. This year, it’s about 13 billion gallons. Barack Obama, who was running for president against a crowded field of Democrats in the Iowa caucuses, was a champion for this law. And with oil prices high and imports climbing, President George W. Bush signed it. Politicians in both parties predicted homegrown corn would help reduce greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global warming and help wean the country off foreign sources of oil.

Q: Sounds straightforward. Green energy, right? A: Not really. From the

were skeptical of this program. Even people on Obama’s environmental team had doubts. Ethanol comes with all kinds of environmental baggage, like the fertilizer used to grow corn and the coal and natural gas that fuel ethanol plants. The ethanol policy also helped send corn prices rising, which encouraged farmers to plant more corn, in some cases on native prairies and land set aside for conserving habitat. In Des Moines, Iowa, the water utility was strained to the brink this summer as it tried to remove the nitrogen fertilizer residue from drinking water to keep it within safe standards. Some of that fertilizer runs into the nation’s rivers, worsening a dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico that can no longer support marine life. Farmers also planted on hilly, erodible soil, which encouraged erosion and the loss of topsoil.

Q: But ethanol helps reduce

beginning, environmentalists

global warming? A: That was the intent. But sometimes farmers create cropland by plowing over grassland. Grassland keeps carbon dioxide locked up in the soil. Plow over it, and that gas is released. It can take decades to make up for that loss. Under Obama, more than 5 million acres of land set aside as conservation land was transformed back into farmland. That’s the size of Yosemite, Yellowstone and Everglades National Parks combined. At least another 1.2 million acres of prairieland in the Great Plains have been plowed over for corn. Many environmentalists and scientists now question whether the ethanol mandate will ever accomplish its primary environmental goal: reducing greenhouse gases.

Q: The ethanol industry disputes those numbers and says no virgin land has been lost. What gives?

A: The government only started tracking this in 2012. The USDA concluded 38,000 acres were lost that year. And farmers in the Dakotas told AP reporters that they were plowing into pristine prairieland. So it’s not a question of whether it’s happening. The question is on what scale. The government has made it impossible to determine that number precisely. So the AP used the only method available to estimate it: Government crop data collected by satellite. The AP identified tracts of land that were cornfields in 2012 and had been grassland in 2006. The AP then excluded land lost from the Conservation Reserve Program to prevent double counting. The AP vetted this methodology with an independent scientist at South Dakota State University who has published peer-review research on land conversion using the same satellite data.

Official: Committee good way to encourage cooperation • PROJECT Continued from page A1 downtown,” Roberts said. Although he said no deadlines have been imposed, Roberts hopes to schedule the committee’s first meeting in early December. “I want to make sure we get a copy of the City Center plan to all the members to begin discussions,” Roberts said.

“I just want to keep moving on this in a reasonable time frame.” Smirz said the committee was a good way to encourage cooperation among NIU officials and city leaders. “We have a responsibility to make every effort to engage NIU with the city,” Smirz said. “I think this is a tremendous opportunity for the city and the university to work together.”

Lessons for both parties in Va., N.J. elections In an August column, I argued that this year’s governor elections in New Jersey and Virginia would have little precedential significance, unlike some other off-year elections in those states. Boiled down, my argument was that in New Jersey you had a governor who could not lose, and in Virginia you had two candidates who could not win. Now the results are in, and my predictions were not far off. Republican Chris Christie won 60 percent to 38 percent in heavily Democratic New Jersey. In Virginia, the state closest to the national average in the past two presidential elections, neither Democrat Terry McAuliffe nor Republican Ken Cuccinelli won 50 percent of the vote. McAuliffe, far ahead in the polls for months, eked out a 48 percent to 45 percent victory. So, these contests are of limited precedential value. But they do provide some interesting lessons for both parties. Lesson No. 1 for Democrats: Obamacare hurts. Two days before Halloween, McAuliffe was leading 47 percent to 37 percent in the Real Clear Politics average of polls. In seven days, his margin melted from 10 percentage points to 2.5 points. The big news during that period was the rocky Obamacare rollout and stories revealing that President Barack Obama’s repeated statements that people could keep their insurance or their doctor were either lies or (as many Democrats concede) misleading. The exit polls showed that 46 percent of Virginia voters favor Obamacare and 52 percent oppose it. In a state Obama carried twice. Lesson No. 1 for Republicans: Provocativeness hurts. Cuccinelli’s positions on abortion and same-sex marriage are not much different from Christie’s or Virginia Republican incumbent Bob McDonnell’s. But his tone was, and he lost single women

ment-oriented Bradley Byrne over a tea partier in Alabama’s 1st Congressional District runoff election suggests that, even in a hyper-conservative district, the impulse among Republican voters for confrontation with Democrats is waning.

Lesson No. 2 for Democrats: Your youth It may well do so, but you’d better have altervote is evaporating.

In recent weeks, an imprisoned Cuban human rights activist and rapper, Angel Yunier Remón, known as “El Critico,” has been on a hunger strike against his incarceration, and is reported to be near death. An innovative artist with an underground following among impoverished Cuban youth, he was jailed March 26 after an altercation at his home staged by Castro’s goons, a gambit to coerce him into silence. But instead he has been resolute, and fought back. In an expression of rank hypocrisy, Cuba is seeking a seat on the 47-member United Nations Human Rights Council. The General Assembly votes today for 14 new members. Recently, Rosa Maria Pay, daughter of the Cuban dissident Oswaldo Pay, who died in a suspicious car wreck last year, appealed to the body to reject Cuba, noting that death threats, arbitrary arrests and violence are routinely used to repress dissent. According to a General Assembly resolution, candidates for the council are supposed to be countries that “uphold the highest standards in the promotion and protection of human rights.” Cuba does not meet that criterion. Other regimes that resort to brutality and violence because they lack genuine political legitimacy are also bidding for seats. Admittedly, the council is not the most effective force, but why bestow membership on those who brazenly violate basic principles of human dignity? Should China, which brooks no challenge to the ruling party’s monopoly on power and maintains a gulag of political prisoners and the largest Internet censorship operation in the world, be sitting in judgment about human rights? Many are reluctant to speak out because of China’s vast economic power. This is shameful. Russia, too, wants a place. Its qualifications? Two young women of Pussy Riot, the girl band, remain imprisoned for staging a protest in a cathedral; a dozen people face arbitrary prosecution for participating in the Bolotnaya square demonstrations; oil magnate Mikhail Khodorkovsky is entering his 10th year behind bars; a regressive wave of legislation in recent months has further suffocated civil society. Also seeking a seat is Vietnam, which has been rounding up human rights defenders, political dissidents, lawyers, journalists, bloggers, democracy advocates, religious activists and others. Saudi Arabia wants to be on the council, even though it has routinely thrown people into prison without charge or trial, and refuses to allow women to drive on their own. If these countries are given seats, what message does it send to the rest of the world? To those like El Critico, bravely standing up to repression? The Washington Post

Rural America’s new horizon New horizons in rural America. That was a daunting statistic that Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack pulled out in Lincoln, Neb., last week. Since the financial crisis of 2008, “Not a single net new job has been created in rural America. For the first time in history, we’ve lost population, 42,000 in two years,” Vilsack said. The relentless wheel of change keeps turning. For decades, the mechanization of agriculture eliminated the need for human labor in planting, harvesting and caring for animals. A square mile in rural Nebraska typically might have supported four families. These days, there might be one. Farmsteads were abandoned, overgrown and finally bulldozed away, as the countryside emptied of people. But, as Vilsack affirmed at the second annual Rural Futures Conference sponsored by the University of Nebraska, rural America matters immensely to the nation and the world. Rural America supplies the nation with food, energy, water and places for recreation. Opportunities abound. Importantly, the technological change that once diminished opportunities in rural American now is entering a phase that creates new prospects. The mobile communication devices that seem permanently attached to the American hands are redefining the meaning of community, said keynote speaker Tom Koulopoulos, founder of the Delphi Group. “Kids are growing up constantly connected to each other and their devices. These devices become part of their community,” he said. It’s important for state policymakers to do their part. Key to the future envisioned by Koulopoulos and others is the infrastructure to support those devices. And high-quality broadband is threatened by the impending loss of federal subsidies. Consultant Michael Balhoff warned last month that without adequate broadband service, sparsely populated rural areas will become an “economic wasteland.” Already, the presence of broadband service in small towns spurs economic activity, University of Nebraska-Lincoln economist Eric Thompson said. Those towns also are likely to have more 18- to 43-year-olds and residents with college degrees, he said. “We have not realized the full potential of what could be achieved by leveraging our resources, our intellectual capacity and our energy,” Nebraska university President James B. Milliken said. He’s right. Lincoln (Neb.) Journal Star

Titans QB Locker out for season with injured foot NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Titans quarterback Jake Locker (above left) will miss the rest of the season with a Lisfranc injury to his right foot, leaving Tennessee trying to rally with Ryan Fitzpatrick (above right). A discussion on their banged-up quarterback’s future with the Titans will have to wait until the offseason. “We’re just concentrating on these seven weeks,” coach Mike Munchak said Monday after announcing Locker’s injury. “That’s all we’re concerned about. Next year is next year. Right now we just got to go forward and try to win a game.” Not only did the Titans lose Locker on Sunday, they also became the first team to lose to previously winless Jacksonville this season 29-27. That loss dropped the Titans to 4-5, missing a chance to pull within a game of Indianapolis (6-3) in the AFC South. The quarterback was hurt in the second quarter of a 29-27 loss to Jacksonville at the end of an option play. Locker, who was on crutches and a walking boot, told reporters before leaving the stadium he hoped and prayed the injury wouldn’t end his season. But further tests Monday confirmed the extent of the damage. “To lose him now is a huge blow,” Munchak said. “I mean you watch any team that loses their quarterback it’s a big effect on the team.” Munchak said whether Locker will need surgery to repair his foot will be decided in the next few days after consulting with surgeons. “So it’s hard for him,” Munchak said. “I know how depressed he is, I know how hard this hurt him and our team. I mean, he’s a fighter.” – Wire report

Katie Kowalski thought she might come up short of her goal of playing softball at the highest level in college. Dealing with injuries over the past two years caused the current DeKalb senior to miss a lot of time on the mound. But Kowalski received a scholarship offer from Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne last weekend and verbally committed to the softball program Sunday. “My dream has always been to go [Division I] ever since I started playing softball,” Kowalski said. “With my injury I didn’t think I was going to be able to. With the offer I got and the school was just gorgeous. It just felt right.” Kowalski was named the 2011 Daily Chronicle Softball Player

She was also a first-team All-Area selection in 2012 as a sophomore despite being hindered by thoracic outlet syndrome, a condition that cut off blood flow from her arm and caused swelling in her hand and soreness in her shoulder. But Kowalski had her first rib removed in December and kept working. She played in a tournament in St. Louis three weekends ago and was spotted by the

IPFW coach. She took a visit to the Fort Wayne campus last weekend and was immediately impressed by the campus and athletic facility. “It’s a really nice school,” Kowalski said. “The campus is pretty and the athletic facility was awesome. It was huge and there was so much you could do it.” Kowalski plans to go into the school’s nursing program and said that her degree will actually be from Purdue University when she graduates. By getting her commitment out of the way, Kowalski will enter her final season at DeKalb with no worries about what comes next. “It’s the biggest relief ever just to know that it’s done with and over it,” Kowalski said. “I have my future set. It’s now just actually about playing the sport.”

Wenning, Lynch matchup will be tough competition By STEVE NITZ snitz@shawmedia.com If it wasn’t for Jordan Lynch, Ball State’s Keith Wenning may be the Mid-American Conference quarterback known nationally. Wenning would be the one racking up MAC West Offensive Player of the Week honors, and would most likely be the favorite for the Vern Smith Leadership Award, which will probably go to Northern Illinois’ senior quarterback for the second consecutive season. Like Lynch, Wenning wasn’t highly recruited out of high school, but there are a lot of programs out there

According to Rivals, Ball State was Wenning’s only offer when he committed there in December of 2009 out of Coldwater, Ohio. As a senior, he’s been on fire,

throwing for 3,164 yards, a total which ranks fourth in the nation behind Oregon State’s Sean Mannion (3,540 yards), Fresno State’s Derek Carr (3,421), and Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel (3,313). Wenning has thrown 27 touchdowns, also the fourth-highest total in the nation behind the three aforementioned quarterbacks. He’s also the only quarterback in the country to throw for 300 yards in eight games this season. There’s a number of reasons Wenning was named a finalist for the Unitas Award (best senior QB) last week. Ball State head coach Pete Lembo said Wenning’s deep

ball has gotten a lot better. He’s also got a great supporting cast, led by wide receiver Willie Snead, and he’s accurate, completing 62.9 percent of his passes. “His footwork is tremendous. You throw the ball with your feet first and his feet are always in a good position,” NIU coach Rod Carey said. “He has really good chemistry with his wide receivers. I think all of them have been playing together now for three years. When we had them here two years ago at our place, they were just getting to know each other. Now they’re well-seasoned together.”

MAC NOTEBOOK

Bulls, Rockets square off at the Glass Bowl By STEVE NITZ snitz@shawmedia.com Northern Illinois-Ball State is the game of the week in the Mid-American Conference, no doubt. However, tonight’s game on ESPNU between Buffalo and Toledo is an important one as well. The surprising Bulls, who sit at 7-2 and 5-0 in the MAC, would still control their own destiny in the East Division with a loss today. The MAC East race will likely come down to the final week of the season, when Bowling Green heads to Buffalo for a game that will be played at the Buffalo Bills’ Ralph Wilson Stadium. For Toledo, the Rockets have to

win today to stay alive in the MAC West. Should Toledo win out and NIU beat Ball State, the Rockets would win the MAC West title based on the conference strength of schedule tiebreaker (Toledo will have played both Bowling Green and Buffalo in the crossovers). Buffalo was picked to finish fourth in the MAC East in the league’s pre-

season poll, but has been a big surprise, and the Bulls’ only two losses are to No. 3 Ohio State and No. 5 Baylor. Last week, Buffalo topped Ohio thanks to running back Branden Oliver’s 249 rushing yards. “We’re getting production from our best players,” Bulls coach Jeff Quinn said on Monday’s MAC coach-

es teleconference. “And I look at [Toledo], their getting production from their best players. The MAC at this point, it’s probably as exciting as it’s ever been.” Two of the MAC’s top backs will be on the field today with Oliver and Toledo’s David Fluellen. Oliver leads the conference with 140.4 rushing yards per game, and Fluellen is second at 133.4. “Both have got great vision and both have the ability to make the big play, and I think that’s been evident throughout the season for both backs,” Rockets coach Matt Campbell said.

MLB Rookies of Year: Fernandez and Myers NEW YORK – Jose Fernandez of the Miami Marlins and Wil Myers of the Tampa Bay Rays were selected baseball’s Rookies of the Year on Monday. Fernandez stood out in a deep National League class, and the pitcher received 26 of 30 first-place votes from a Baseball Writers’ Association of America panel. His debut season was so superb that he’s one of three finalists for the NL Cy Young Award, with the winner to be announced Wednesday. Myers took home the American League prize after putting up impressive offensive numbers in barely half a season. The right fielder was chosen first on 23 of 30 ballots, beating out Detroit shortstop Jose Iglesias and Rays teammate Chris Archer. Myers became the third Tampa Bay player in six years to be selected Rookie of the Year, joining Jeremy Hellickson (2011) and Evan Longoria (2008). – Staff, wire reports

Bulls point guard Derrick Rose looks to pass the ball past Cleveland Cavaliers center Andrew Bynum on Monday during the first half at the United Center.

BULLS 96, CAVALIERS 81

Rose leaves Bulls’ win with injury By JOE COWLEY Chicago Sun-Times The highly anticipated Derrick Rose-Kyrie Irving showdown was three years in the making, but in the end played out to be a little more than an over-hyped thud, followed by a gasp. With 3:15 left in the eventual 96-81 Bulls win, 2011 MVP Derrick Rose was noticeably limping after a layup, and was forced to come out of the game with a sore right hamstring. “He tweaked it, and he’ll be re-evaluated [today],’’ Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. “We’ll have more information then, but it appears to be minor.’’ Besides the obvious concerns, considering Rose missed the past 18 months recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, there was also the fact that Rose actually seemed to be getting some consistency in that final quarter, scoring six points in helping his team pull away. With all the problems the Bulls have had on offense, los-

Next for the Bulls Bulls at Toronto, 6 p.m. Friday, WCIU, AM-1000 ing Rose for any sustained time would be a worst-case scenario. Rose missed a preseason game with knee soreness, but besides a sore neck, had very few setbacks on the injury front. As far as being the player he was before the injury? That was still on the side of a milk carton. There have been flashes, but nothing that the Bulls could hang their hat on and say “The MVP is back!’’ That was until the fourth quarter against the Cavs (3-5). While Rose only had six points in the first half on 3-for9 shooting, he held Irving to just two free throws, and those didn’t come until 1:36 left in the half. In that final quarter, however, Rose pushed the action,

and scored six points to finish the night with 16, adding seven assists. “He’s done that all season,’’ Thibodeau said of Rose’s aggressiveness. “Right now, he’s attacking, not quite finishing because his timing is off, but I would like to see him get to the line a little bit.’’ Since the opener in Miami, the concerns Thibodeau has had with his team on the offensive side have been the chemistry. A chemistry that was out of whack because of training camp injuries to both Joakim Noah and Jimmy Butler. “You get chemistry from working together, playing together and practicing together,’’ Noah said. “And we didn’t do that in the preseason. Now we’ve gotten guys back and we need to keep working.’’ That has been the company line the past week, especially after the Bulls opened the season 1-3 and with losses against Eastern Conference powerhouses Miami and Indiana. But with back-to-back wins, they are a .500 team (3-3) hoping for a much

higher ceiling with the offense. “The fast-break points are good,’’ Thibodeau said of the offensive improvements he’s been looking for. “The points in the paint are good. We’re not shooting the ball as well as we would like. So we have to continue to work at that.’’ Considering the inconsistencies Cleveland came into the night with, playing a Cavs team that the Bulls have dominated by now winning 12 of their past 13 meetings, it was as good a night as any to get the shooting turned around. Mike Dunleavy did that off the bench, scoring 15 points, including shooting 2 of 3 from beyond the 3-point arc. “There are still a number of areas we need to clean up,’’ Thibodeau said. “We want to move forward. The good thing is the bench is playing well, but whoever is called on, get in there and get the job done.’’ The attention now will be on Rose and his hamstring, with the good news being the Bulls have three days off before a Friday night game in Toronto.

BULLS NOTES

Cavaliers’ future is looking bright By JOE COWLEY Chicago Sun-Times CHICAGO – The Indiana Pacers are today. The Cleveland Cavaliers, however, are on the fast track to being tomorrow. At least that was the feeling from Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau on Monday, in discussing the Central Division, and specifically possible growing rivals moving forward. “When you get a piece like [Cavs guard Kyrie] Irving you can build, and they’ve done that,”’ Thibodeau said. “They have some very good young players, they have a style of play, they’re going in the right direction. I think they’re a very dangerous team.” A description that seemed unlikely four years ago, as

LeBron James brought the franchise, and city, to its knees in his decision to leave as a free agent and sign with Miami. “No, I think they have a nice foundation in place,” Thibodeau said of how quickly they have rebuilt. “And that’s the nature of the NBA – it’s how quickly you can adapt to change. So the things they’ve been able to control, they’ve done a great job with.’’ Irving is the key, and is under control by the team until after the 2015-16 season. The signing of free agents Andrew Bynum and Jarrett Jack were the offseason splashes the Cavs made, as well as bringing back coach Mike Brown. While the jury is still out on what kind of players youngsters Anthony Bennett

and Dion Waiters can develop into, one thing Cleveland has going for it is salary flexibility. Anderson Varejao and Alonzo Gee each have team options, and their departure could leave the payroll at just under $49 million next season. That’s why the James-backto-Cleveland rumors have been floating out there, and as far-fetched as that seems, that would obviously be a game-changer. Going on the defensive: That defensive effort that the Bulls were searching for after their 1-2 start has finally shown up. According to Carlos Boozer, it actually happened in the game with the Pacers last week, but just couldn’t sustain itself in the fourth quarter against Indiana. But both Utah and Cleveland were giv-

en full doses of it the last two games. “Obviously we can improve at it, but our defense is ahead of our offense,’’ Boozer said. “If we would have started the season playing defense like we have the last couple games our record would indicate that.’’ Coach K in the house: Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski was in attendance for Bulls-Cavs Monday night, and had a lot to watch. He coached Mike Dunleavy, Boozer, Luol Deng and Irving, and added Thibodeau to the coaching staff for Team USA Basketball. “It was a great experience,’’ Thibodeau said of working with Krzyzewski. “His record speaks for itself. He’s a fantastic leader, just terrific.’’ Duke plays Kansas on Tuesday at the United Center.

Lynch brings running Fleck having a slow element to the game season at W. Michigan • HUSKIES Continued from page B1 Of course, Lynch brings an element that Wenning doesn’t, and that’s the running game. Wenning has mobility, but Lynch is in a different class when it comes to running the ball, with 1,150 yards – the seventh-best mark in the country and tops for any QB. Lynch isn’t a slouch throwing the ball either, completing 63.6 percent of his passes for 1,871 yards and 19 touchdowns to only five interceptions (the same interception total as Wenning). “He’s probably underrated as a passer. You get so geared up to stop the run game, the quarterback run game and all the misdirection, that they have some good opportunities to throw it on the perimeter

whether it be screens or downfield throws,” Lembo said. “So, I think No. 1, he doesn’t get as much credit as he deserves in the passing game, and No. 2, their staff is very wise in terms of taking advantage of what the defense is giving them. “When people are too overzealous of the run game and overloading the box you get some good matchups on the outside and obviously they’ve got very good skill on the outside.” There is a bit of a different look to both quarterbacks. Wenning is more of your traditional pocket passer while Lynch can beat defenses with his legs just as easily. But both quarterbacks put up a lot of yards, and points. Expect a high-powered, high-scoring game on Wednesday.

• MAC Continued from page B1 Cardinals already in midweek mode: Ball State has already started its midweek schedule, beating Central Michigan last Wednesday. The Cardinals have already had their 10-day break from Saturday contests to midweek, while NIU is in the midst of its long break right now, something which could give the Huskies an advantage. “I think any coach would prefer to have a few extra days, especially when you’re getting ready for such a diverse offense,” Ball State coach Pete Lembo said.

Fleck says Broncos are improving: It’s been anything but a fairytale season for

P.J. Fleck in his first year at Western Michigan. The Broncos have only one win, and this Saturday’s game against Central Michigan is really their last realistic chance to earn another victory, as Western’s final game is at NIU. The Broncos have fought through injuries all year, and it started back in August, when wide receiver Jamie Wilson, last year’s MAC Freshman of the Year, broke his ankle in fall camp. Fleck’s team nearly got its second win Saturday, falling 35-32 at Eastern Michigan in overtime. “This team is improving,” Fleck said. ‘We had 468 yards of total offense [against Eastern], which is huge with the youth and [lack of] experience we have.”

8BRIEF Pastrana leaving NASCAR after finale CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Travis Pastrana said Monday he’s leaving NASCAR after this weekend’s season finale Nationwide Series race at Homestead. Pastrana announced his decision on his Facebook page. He cited a lack of sponsorship, a desire to spend time with his wife and new daughter and frustration over his struggles in NASCAR as his reasons for leaving the sport. The Pastrana’s welcomed daughter, Addy, in early September. – Wire report

AVONDALE, Ariz. – Matt Kenseth did his best to put on a brave face following his worst performance of the season, which just happened to come at the worst possible time in his championship battle with Jimmie Johnson. Dark sunglasses shielded the disappointment in Kenseth’s eyes when he climbed from his car. His voice cracked just once during what was clearly a concession speech. Instead of harping on the negatives – he was saddled with an ill-handling car all day at Phoenix International Raceway and every fix crew chief Jason Ratcliff attempted only made it worse – Kenseth focused on the positives. His first season with Joe Gibbs Racing has been the best of his 14 years in the Sprint Cup Series. He won a career-best seven races, added a Southern 500 victory to his resume and crossed Chicago, Darlington, Kentucky and New Hampshire off the list of active tracks where he’d never won a Cup race. And at 41 years old, a decade removed from his only Cup championship, Kenseth was in the mix again. Although Kenseth is still mathematically eligible to win the title, his 23rd-place finish at Phoenix sends him into Sunday’s finale at Homestead trailing Johnson by 28 points. It would take a massive failure for Johnson not to win his sixth championship. “You hope to go down to Homestead and race for it on performance,” Kenseth said. “On the other hand, I’m extremely happy. I’m really, really happy with my team. It’s a special group of guys. We’ve had just an amazing, incredible season and we still have one week left. Hopefully, we can go to Homestead and go down there and contend for a win.” It was an admirable postrace performance on an abominable day for Kenseth and the

The rest of the garage had noted from the opening practice Friday that Johnson and his Hendrick Motorsports team had shifted into another gear. Coming off a rout of the field at Texas, the No. 48 team gave every indication it was poised to do the same at Phoenix. Joey Logano said Johnson was in “kill mode” and Kenseth teammate Denny Hamlin sounded as if a Johnson title was inevitable. “I think everyone in the garage knows that they can turn it up at will, and this is typically the time of year they start doing that, especially when they are in championship contention,” Hamlin said. With the pressure on, Kenseth had to be perfect. Instead, his car was terrible from the start, every adjustment backfired and strategy didn’t play into Ratcliff’s hands. When the crew chief tried to make a call on the fly, it led to a botched pit stop that put Kenseth down two laps from the leaders.

“It’d be great if we came in here and everything worked out like we had on paper, you went out and won the race and go to Homestead tied,” Ratcliff shrugged. “That’s why it’s so hard to win these championships. People work their guts out for them and they’re very rewarding when you do get them.” Ratcliff called it “a pretty rough day,” but noted the No. 20 team had very few of those this year – Kenseth had two engine failures and a crash that contributed to three of his five finishes worse than 23rd this season – and that on this particular Sunday, things just spiraled out of control quickly in a sport that moves at almost 200 mph. “Everybody’s going to say, ‘Oh, the pressure got to them,’” Ratcliff said. “Just poor execution on a track that’s so hard to pass. You’re trying to make up for something that happened earlier and it just snowballs on you.” This is a team that led just 190 laps a year ago when Joey Logano drove the car and Ratcliff won his first race as a Sprint Cup crew chief. This is a

team that took Kenseth to New Hampshire, where he’d led 89 laps in 26 previous races and hadn’t finished in the top-five since 2005, and got him to Victory Lane for the first time in his career. The New Hampshire victory marked back-to-back wins to open the Chase and put Johnson on alert. After Johnson moved into the points lead heading into Martinsville, the No. 20 team went into another one of Kenseth’s weaker tracks and delivered a second-place finish that tied the championship race. Sometimes, people just have bad days. Sunday was one of them for Kenseth and crew. It was the wrong day against the wrong opponent, and behind his sunglasses, Kenseth had to be wondering if he’ll ever have an opportunity like this again. But deep down, he knew this season itself was one to be treasured. “Disappointing day here, but yet what a great season,” he said. “I really appreciate this whole group. There’s not a car out here I’d rather be driving than this one. I’m a pretty lucky guy.”

ADVICE & PUZZLES

Longtime gay couple better off not marrying Dear Abby: I have been with my partner, “Harold,” for 11 years. After gay marriage passed here in Minnesota, Harold told me he didn’t want to marry me because of my credit rating. I find this insulting and humiliating. Worse, the day marriage equality passed, we were with some friends of mine, and he bluntly told them, “I don’t want to marry him because of his FICO score!” It was very embarrassing. I have also learned that Harold has been telling anyone he knows some of my private information. What can I say to him to get him to stop revealing things about me to people we don’t know well? I have asked him plenty of times not to mention my private life to others, but he still brings up information I’d

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips prefer others not know. Should I end the relationship? I think in some way if I do, that I’ll be better off without him. But after 11 years and all that he’s done for me, I’d feel really sad. I’d appreciate any advice you give me. – Frustrated in Minneapolis Dear Frustrated: I agree that after all these years you have much time and emotion invested in your relationship with Harold. Although I’m sure he has many virtues, sensitivity and discretion do not appear to be among them. It would be interesting to know if Harold would be willing to marry you if your FICO score

improved, or if he’s using it as an excuse because he doesn’t want a legal commitment. Even if the two of you did marry, you would still have a partner who lacks discretion about what should be private. If this is important to you, Harold may not be the spouse for you because he isn’t likely to change. Couples counseling could help you decide what to do next. Inquire at your nearest gay and lesbian community center about any seminars it offers for longtime couples on this important subject. Just because people CAN marry doesn’t necessarily mean they should. Dear Abby: Our son recently came to us and confessed that three years ago he’d had an affair with a married woman who had two children. He ran into her recently, and she told

him she now has three children, and the most recent one – age 3 – is his daughter. She’s still married to the man she cheated on, and our son says he’s still in love with her. We told our son that because she says the child is his doesn’t necessarily mean it is, and if her husband didn’t question the pregnancy, it’s possible the child is her husband’s. We advised our son to get a paternity test. Our son is now so angry with us for suggesting it that he won’t speak to us. He said if we can’t support him and the woman he loves, we should stay out of his life. He said she plans to leave her husband. (It has been three weeks and she’s still there.) I think she was just trying to get our son’s attention. Was our suggestion un-

reasonable? We don’t support this kind of behavior or their lack of morals. The woman’s husband is the only dad this little girl knows, and he thinks she’s his child. Our son needs to know if this is his daughter. What a mess! What do we do next? – On The Outs in California Dear On The Outs: Your suggestion to your son was not only reasonable, it was the same clearheaded advice he would have received from an attorney. What you do next is ... nothing, except letting him know you’re there for him if he needs you. This is your son’s affair, literally, and he is going to have to deal with whatever consequences are the result.

Buy right exercise machine that you’ll use Dear Dr. K: I’m interested in buying a high-quality cardio exercise machine to use at home. Any advice? Dear Reader: Cardio machines offer good aerobic workouts that burn calories and fat. They simulate everything from cycling to walking and running, rowing, skiing and stair climbing. I have an elliptical trainer in my basement: It allows me to exercise every day, regardless of the weather. (And here in Boston, the weather is not always very pleasant.) The price of a cardio machine can vary greatly. How much you pay will depend upon whether a machine is motorized or programmable, and whether it measures heart rate, calories burned,

to use. Even if you never learned how to ride a bike, you can easily use an exercise bike. You don’t have to worry about keeping the bike balanced. However, an exercise bike can be uncomfortable for long stints. Look for a model with a comfortable, adjustable seat and toe clips. • A treadmill enables you to walk or run indoors. Opt for a motorized treadmill with a strong motor, a belt that’s long and wide enough for your stride, a sturdy frame with front side rails for safety, and an emergency stop device. You should be able to adjust the speed and grade. Be sure to try out any equipment you are considering purchasing before buying

it. Some people just don’t like certain machines. And if you don’t like using it, you won’t. That’s money down the drain. Finally, keep in mind that you do not need any equipment to embark on an effective exercise routine. It’s easier and a lot less expensive to start out walking or jogging. But if you want to exercise every day, and live in a place where the weather can be unfriendly, exercise equipment is the way to go. If you can do it, position the equipment near a window, radio, music player or TV – that can help make the exercise time more enjoyable.

Some committees cannot agree on anything Dr. Wallace: Our high school does not have a dress code. Basically, we can wear anything we want to school. The only glitch is that the principal can send you home to change clothes if it is decided that a student’s clothes are “disruptive to the educational process.” I think that it is unfair that one person can decide if your clothes are a disruption. Why is it that the principal is the one to make this decision? Wouldn’t it be better if a committee of students and teachers decided what was and wasn’t appropriate school attire?

majority of high school students are dressed properly when at school, which makes it unnecessary to introduce a mandatory dress code. P.S.: It shouldn’t take a committee to decide if the way a student is dressed would disrupt the school. Many times, a committee can’t agree on anything! Dr. Wallace: I think you’re confused when it comes to drinking alcohol. You said that beer and whiskey are equally addictive and intoxicating. Obviously, you have not consumed a lot of alcohol in your life. I can drink a can of beer and have no ill effects, but if I drank a can full

of whiskey, I’d be in a stupor or even a coma. Please learn about the effects of alcohol whenever you plan to discuss it in the future. I should know, I’m a serious beer drinker – and very proud of it! – Pete, the Greek, Tarpon Springs, Fla. Pete: Maybe you were drinking when you read what I wrote. It’s not that complicated, but you completely missed the point. It’s the amount of alcohol you consume that matters, not the kind of alcohol. The alcohol in beer, whiskey, wine and every other drink is the same; only the amount is different. All alcohol is

addictive and intoxicating. Now comes the part I want you to clearly understand. Beer is usually 5 percent alcohol, while whiskey (80 proof) is 40 percent alcohol. This means that one 12-ounce glass of beer contains 0.6 ounces of alcohol, the same as 1.5 ounces of 80-proof whiskey. Just do the math. Simply stated, one can of beer has the same alcoholic content as one mixed drink containing a shot of whiskey. P.S.: Being a serious beer drinker is nothing to be proud of.

BRIDGE Phillip Alder

Basic declarer play gets a tune-up If you have not been playing the game long and would like to check that you have basic declarer play down pat, buy “Declarer Play at Bridge: A Quizbook” by Barbara Seagram and David Bird (Master Point Press). The book starts with suit contracts. There are four pages of basic instruction, then 40 quiz questions in which the reader is shown the dummy and declarer’s hand (“single dummy,” as it is called) and asked to choose a line of play. Each answer also includes a useful point to remember. Next, there are six pages about no-trump contracts, followed by 20 single-dummy problems. There are fewer examples because no-trump contracts are much less complicated than suit contracts. In this example from the book, how should South play in six hearts? West leads the spade jack. Yes, South’s jump to slam is a tad optimistic. But the play’s the thing. South has two losers: one diamond and one club. He has only 11 winners: two spades, six hearts, two diamonds and one club. He must establish dummy’s club suit. But if it is splitting 4-2, that will require three dummy entries. Luckily, there are three: the heart king, heart 10 and diamond king. After taking the first trick, cash the club ace and play another club. Suppose East wins and shifts to the diamond queen. South wins with his ace, cashes the heart ace, plays a heart to dummy’s 10, ruffs a club, leads a heart to the king, ruffs another club, plays a diamond to dummy’s king, and happily discards a minor-suit loser on the club jack, which is now a winner.
