DeKalb County Board honors Scott Sheriff’s 45 years of public service celebrated By DEBBIE BEHRENDS dbehrends@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – Roger Scott has accomplished something few people ever do. The DeKalb County sheriff has served the county’s police force for 45 years and been elected to the post seven times after first being appointed in 1985. DeKalb County Board Chairman Jeff Metzger said, according to county payroll records, Scott has served the county longer than anyone.

Although his appointment wasn’t popular at the time, Metzger said Scott has proven detractors wrong. “In March 1985, the County Board appointed Roger as county sheriff,” Metzger said in a statement he read at the January County Board meet-

ing. “Some say he was a compromise candidate, but many knew the qualities Roger would being to the office.” Scott’s career with the county began years earlier when he was hired in communications, then called the radio room, he said. “I joined the department Jan. 1, 1969, on third shift in the radio room,” Scott said. “I worked in the radio room about eight or nine months.” Scott said Melvin Shaw was the sheriff at the time, and it was a different era.

Tough decision

“We only had about 15 people in the whole department then,” Scott recalled. “We have about 100 now.” During his years with the department, Scott has pursued several initiatives, including the Drug Task Force, Major Crimes Task Force, Special Operations Team, electronic home monitoring to ease crowding at the jail and the county’s K-9 program in 1974. Chief Deputy Gary Dumdie, formerly a K-9 handler

Officials: OD eyed in actor’s death

Knowing when to stop driving difficult for most seniors

By DEBBIE BEHRENDS dbehrends@shawmedia.com Nikki Crooke of DeKalb plans to keep driving until they tell her she can’t any more. Crooke, 79, of DeKalb, said she would feel a terrible loss of independence without her driver’s license. “I worked as a visiting nurse for hospice up until just three years ago,” Crooke said. “I put about 800 miles a month on my car.” Discussions about giving up one’s driver’s license – and with it a measure of independence – are difficult for senior citizens. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 5,401 people age 65 and older were killed and 185,000 were injured in motor vehicle traffic crashes. These older individuals made up 17 percent of all traffic fatalities and 8 percent of all people injured in traffic crashes that year. In January, two crashes on Peace Road in Sycamore involving drivers in their 80s led to serious injuries; in one, an 85-year-old driver died as a result of injuries suffered in the crash. Seniors, and those who care for them, need to have discussions about driving, advised Diana King, senior service director for Family Service Agency. But it’s not always an easy one. “Always be respectful and sensitive when having that conversation,” King said. “Understand that it’s difficult to lose that independence.” Illinois law requires that drivers older than 75 take a vision and driving test to renew their driver’s licenses. Sometimes drivers also have to take the written test, de-

Philip Seymour Hoffman, 46, found dead in NYC home The ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK – Philip Seymour Hoffman, who won the Oscar for his portrayal of writer Truman Capote and created a gallery of slackers, charlatans and other characters so vivid that he was regarded as one of the world’s finest actors, was found dead in his apartment Sunday with what officials said was a needle in his arm. He was 46. The actor apparently died of a drug overdose, said two Philip l a w e n f o r c e - Seymour ment officials, Hoffman who spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case. Envelopes containing what was believed to be heroin were found with him, they said. Hoffman – with his doughy, everyman physique, his often-disheveled look and his limp, receding blond hair – was a character actor of such range and lack of vanity that he could seemingly handle roles of any size, on the stage and in movies that played in art houses or multiplexes. He could play comic or dramatic, loathsome or sympathetic, trembling or diabolical, dissipated or tightly

Discussions about giving up one’s driver’s license – and with it a measure of independence – are difficult for senior citizens. Advanced age, slower reflexes and health issues are among the signs that it may be time to give up one’s driver’s license.

Debbie Behrends – dbehrends@shawmedia.com

Ralph Torres of Sandwich, works with a cosmetics company and serves as junior vice commander of the American Legion post in Plano.

8 FACE TIME WITH...

Ralph Torres Ralph Torres gets double takes when he tells people he works for a cosmetics company. The Sandwich resident talked recently with reporter Debbie Behrends about his job with Ulta, how he got there and his involvement with the American Legion.

Behrends: Are you from Sandwich originally? Torres: No, I’m from Gary, Ind. Jobs brought me here. We were on our way to North Carolina, but in this area I’ve lived in Cortland, Rochelle and Sandwich.

Behrends: Between Gary and Sandwich, did you go to college? Serve in the military? What were you doing? Torres: I was going to school at Robert Morris College for engineering when the first Gulf War broke out. I decided to enlist in the Army, and I served from 1991 to ’98 at Fort Bragg, N.C., and Fort Shafter in Hawaii. I was

never deployed to a war zone, but I did travel a lot.

Behrends: What was your job in the Army? Torres: I was planning to go into the infantry, but my parents convinced me to go into something that would help me with a career after the Army. I signed up as a cartographer, a mapmaker. I thought that would work well with engineering. I thought long and hard about making it a career, but I wanted to be home with my family more.

I moved into the retail industry with Urban Retail Properties in Chicago as the head of market research from 2000 to ’04. Based on demographic information, I was able to tell them what tenants would be good in a location, good locations to build malls, that kind of thing. I’m now doing the same thing at Ulta Beauty as manager of research. I do trade area analyses that help determine where to put new stores. Ulta has almost 700 stores.

Behrends: Tell me about your involvement with the American Legion. Torres: I joined American Legion

Behrends: Where have you worked since leaving the Army? Post 395 in Plano in 2011 and I’m curTorres: My first job was with Case IH rently serving as junior vice commandin the farm-mapping division. I knew nothing about agriculture, but I knew about mapping and using satellite imagery software. I was involved in mapping for yield analysis, soil analysis, things like that.

8BRIEF Iowa fish launcher ensures dramatic eagle photos Le CLAIRE, Iowa – The photographers who line up at a Mississippi River lock to snap images of eagles are getting help from a man with a giant slingshot that flings dead fish into the open water. Ken Kester, who built the contraption, calls it a “fish launcher.” Kester sets up the slingshot at Lock and Dam 14 in Le Claire, Iowa. He told the Quad-City Times it can toss fish a couple hundred feet into the channel, where the water is calmer and eagles feel comfortable snatching up the meals. Iowa conservation officer Jeff Harrison said flinging fish into the river is fine as long as the fish come from the local pool of water.

1 sent to hospital in house fire By ANDREA AZZO aazzo@shawmedia.com

Monica Maschak – mmaschak@shawmedia.com

DeKALB – Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of a fire Sunday which caused one person to be transported to the hospital. It took fire crews 10 minutes to get the fire under control, which started around

3:13 a.m. Sunday in the upstairs bedroom at a home on the 300 block of Pond Street in DeKalb and caused $10,000 in damage, according to a city of DeKalb news release. One person was taken to Kishwaukee Hospital for an injury that happened during the initial attempts to extinguish the fire, the release

states. Everyone had been evacuated from the house by the time fire crews arrived, the release states. Investigators are collecting samples to find the cause of the fire, DeKalb Fire Chief Eric Hicks said. There is a possibility that combustibles too close to a space heater caused the fire, Hicks

said. Residents should keep all space heaters at least 3 feet away from household combustibles, according to UL, a safety company. The DeKalb Fire Department, Sycamore Fire Department and medical crews were among those who responded to the fire.

n High: 18 degrees, wind chill values as low as minus 6. n Low: 11 degrees, wind chill values as low as minus 1 degrees

DeKALB – Drivers can prepare for a chilly yet snowfree commute this morning after the Saturday snowstorm brought less snow than expected. Total accumulation for Saturday’s storm was 3.3 inches, well less than the 5 to 8 inches predicted, said Northern Illinois University meteorologist Gilbert Sebenste. The storm brought less snow because at the last minute, it shifted further south, where those in the Interstate 80 corridor received the heaviest snow, Sebenste said. This morning’s temperatures will hover between minus 5 and minus 10 degrees, with a high temperature barley above 10 degrees, Sebenste said. “The good news is that we won’t have any snow, but obviously the roads will still have snow and ice on them,” Sebenste said, “so people need to be careful coming into work.” The Saturday storm caused few problems on the roads for police. However, the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office reported one accident in which a 19-year-old Kirkland resident was traveling west on Route 72 west of Quarry when she lost control on the snow and went into a ditch, hitting several trees, according to a news release. The driver was uninjured but was taken to Kishwaukee Hospital for precautionary measures, the release states. DeKalb County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Gary Dumdie said there were no serious problems because the storm

Source: National Weather Service hit on a Saturday, when there is less traffic. DeKalb Public Works officials chose not to salt residential streets Saturday and instead focused on salting busy intersections and main roads, a procedure they will continue to do until they receive more salt shipments from the state early this week, said DeKalb Public Works director TJ Moore. “We don’t have salt on hand to salt every road like we’ve been doing,” said Mark Espy, DeKalb Public Works assistant director. “We can’t use all the salt on hand for [one] storm.” Nathan Schwartz, DeKalb County Engineer, said the DeKalb County Highway Department has enough salt built up in reserves in both its DeKalb and Waterman storage facilities. However, he still worries about the salt situation. “It’s always on the back of my mind,” Schwartz said, “but I feel confident with our reserves as well as the deliveries that keep trickling in that we’ll be in the OK status for the rest of the winter.” It is also expected to snow Tuesday, although it is too early to predict a snowfall total, Sebenste said, but he is seeing signs of the heaviest snow staying to the east and south of DeKalb County.

She said Daley flew back to Chicago on Friday, and that his family had arranged for an ambulance to be at the airport to take him directly to the hospital. Heard said Daley has been alert while in the hospital, and has been visited by members of his family. She said has not been told by doctors what might have caused Daley to fall ill.

CHICAGO – Former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley likely will remain hospitalized in an intensive care unit for several days as doctors conduct tests to determine why he was feeling ill and disoriented during a conference in Arizona, a spokeswoman for the city’s longest serving mayor said Sunday. Jackie Heard said that the 71-year-old Daley was resting comfortably at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. Daley was attending a confer-

SYCAMORE – For Austin Petrie, the best part of the Kishwaukee District Klondike Derby was the sled jousting, a new event that used shopping carts on skis. “This is actually my first time and I didn’t know Klondike was going to be this much fun,” said Petrie, 9, of Cortland. He also “learned a lot of stuff about first aid” as well as how to use a compass. The snowy conditions Saturday fit in with the Klondike Derby’s underlying purpose, said event coordinator Tom Barone, who also is scoutmaster for Boy Scout Troop 26 in Kirkland. Barone, of Fairdale, dressed in an imitation Voyageur outfit made of a wool blanket coat, called a capote, and high moccasins, during the event at the Sycamore Sportsman’s Club. “Part of what we try to teach the boys is how to survive in weather like this, so if something should happen and they’re caught out there in the middle of a blizzard, they can realize that they’re not going to die; there are ways to keep warm until you can get help,” Barone said. “Hopefully, they’ll never have to use it.” Competitive events emphasizing survival skills included sled racing, fire building, log cutting, first aid, navigating with a map and

Many scouts also enjoyed the unofficial events of snowball fighting, parking lot ice skating, and fireside joke-telling. “We let boys be boys,” said Barone. “You get a 10-, 11-, 12-year-old boy, you let him play with fire, you let him do slingshots, you let him race dogsleds and have a snowball fight – a 10-,12-year-old boy, you can’t have more fun than that.

Some, including Barone, slept in snow caves they dug themselves. “It’s amazing how warm it stays,” Barone said. “I was sitting there in just skivvies, wool socks, and a stocking cap.” Camping provided the most difficult challenge of the day, however, for several scouts like Michael Geiger, 14, of Sycamore. “Most of the time you stay up late and then the next day it’s really hard to get up and get going,” Geiger said. “That’s probably the hardest [thing I had to do].”

Some Quinn, GOP jobs claims add up, some don’t By DAVID MERCER The Associated Press CHAMPAIGN – In his State of the State address and recent interviews, Gov. Pat Quinn has told the state that its economy is, under his watch, bouncing back strongly from recession. But if the Democratic incumbent sees it as a state on the rise, the Republicans seeking to oust him view it far differently – as almost an economic basket case. At least one candidate, businessman Bruce Rauner, trots out his own set of economic numbers to make his case, most depict-

ing Quinn’s Illinois as particularly weak. A closer look shows that some of the economic claims made by each hold up. Others don’t. In Quinn’s State of the State address Wednesday, he pointed out that as he took office in January 2009 the state and national economies were in bad shape. With the recession in full swing at that point, there’s no disputing that. “But over the past five years, we’ve rebuilt one hard step at a time. And we’ve been getting the job done,” he said. Quinn said Illinois has added 280,000 private-sector

jobs since recovery began – officially that was in January 2010 for Illinois – and that statewide unemployment is at its lowest level in almost five years. “In fact, since last May, Illinois has led the Midwest in new jobs created,” the governor said. The first two points are accurate, but if you compare it with other states, Illinois doesn’t always stack up well. According to the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, a net 276,800 private-sector jobs have been added in Illinois since January 2010. That’s a 5.6 percent increase.

state Department of Revenue’s free online filing system once they submit their federal tax returns. Saturday was the first day Illinois residents could do so. They can also file electronically through tax preparers or software designed for 2013 tax year filings. Last year, department officials said 80 percent of taxpayers filed electronically. Many received funds through direct deposit within a week’s time. Department Director Brian Hamer urged senior citizens and low income families to ask nonprofit agencies for help in filing returns. He said that available tax credits are sometimes overlooked.

with a total of 11 days of subzero temperatures. But Chicago Police spokesman Adam Collins told the Chicago Sun-Times that Superintendent Garry McCarthy said weather is only one factor.

In that time, many Midwestern states have done better. Wisconsin’s private-sector job base has grown by 5.7 percent, Indiana’s by 8.8 percent, Michigan’s by 9.2 percent and North Dakota’s – driven by the state’s petroleum boom – leads the way at 30.2 percent. Unemployment, which reached a recession-high of 11.3 percent in January 2010, was at 8.6 percent in December, the most recent month available from the Illinois Department of Employment Security. That’s its lowest point since the 8.5 percent rate in February 2009.

But the current unemployment rate is the third highest among the 50 states, lower only than in Nevada and Rhode Island. “If you start out in a hole, you can climb out to a lot of places,” said economist Richard Dye of the Institute of Government and Public Affairs at the University of Illinois. “I think he’s spinning the glass as half full, and it’s understandable. But I certainly don’t share his rosy outlook.” In terms of the raw number of nonfarm jobs added since May 2010, Quinn is right. No Midwestern state has added more, according to the BLS.

But Illinois has the largest population in the region and probably should generate more jobs. The most accurate way to measure job creation is the percentage increase in the job base, according to Dye. By that measure, Illinois’ nonfarm job base has grown 0.95 percent. That’s better than Minnesota (0.92 percent), Michigan (0.5 percent) and Iowa (0.3 percent). But it’s far short of Wisconsin’s growth (1.7 percent), or Indiana’s (1.3 percent), states where Republican governors have made a habit criticizing Illinois’ economy in recent years.

8STATE BRIEFS Man convicted in 1970 slaying to ask for release ROCKFORD – A man who has spent 44 years in prison for the slaying of a gas station attendant is set to ask for his release from custody. Sixty-six-year-old Calvin Madison will appear before the Illinois Prisoner Review Board member in March to make his 33rd plea for freedom. The board will decide on May 1 whether to grant his request. Madison was convicted in the 1970 slaying of 19-year-old John Hogan. The Rockford Register Star reported that Madison shot Hogan four times in the head with a pistol after Hogan handed over about $100 in cash. Madison originally was sentenced to death, but was resentenced to 75 to 100 years in prison after the U.S. Supreme Court in the 1970s suspended the death penalty for several years.

Illinois road clearing underway after snow CHICAGO – Illinois transportation officials are urging motorists to remain cautious because of lingering snow and ice on some of the state’s roadways. The Department of Transportation said Sunday that conditions are improving on roads and bridges across the state, but problem areas remain. They said most state routes have ice and snow patches, with some areas in central and southern Illinois still covered with snow and ice. What’s more, road conditions could become dangerous once temperatures drop, so motorists are asked to drive only if necessary The Illinois Tollway was removing snow from roadway shoulders, ramps and toll plazas after clearing the roads Sunday.

Teachers strike Jan. 12, 2012, outside Zion-Benton High School in Zion after negotiations between the teachers union and District 126 broke down. An education funding advisory committee is urging for the state’s school funding formula to be changed to provide more equity to rich and poor districts across Illinois during tough economic times.

State Senate study pushes for school funding equity By KERRY LESTER The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD – A new report by a state Senate education committee says that streamlining Illinois’ school funding formula would provide better equity to all districts. According to the document released Friday evening, putting the vast majority of state funds into one pot, then dividing up resources based on need, would serve as a fairer distribution method than the current system, which factors in a district’s poverty for some types of state aid but not others and also treats funding for Chicago schools differently. As the state grapples with

an estimated loss of $1.5 billion in revenue if lawmakers allow the temporary income tax increase to expire as scheduled next January, committee members say it’s an ideal time to have a conversation about changes. “Whatever money we have, we’d like for schools to be funded fairly,” state Sen. Dave Luechtefeld, an Okawville Republican and co-chair of the eight-member committee, said. Overspending and a $100 billion pension shortfall put Illinois in dire financial shape in recent years, with crucial money being stripped away from schools as a backlog of bills piled up. Since 2009, Illinois schools have seen more than $800

million in cuts, according to the state Board of Education. Democratic State Sen. Andy Manar, the education committee’s other co-chair, said he became more aware of the impact of such cuts when his son’s elementary school art class was moved to a janitor’s closet to save the Bunker Hill School District money. As it stands now, Illinois schools get their money from the state in a variety of ways. In addition to “general state aid” – money distributed to districts to help offset the basic cost of educating students – schools get separate grant money to fund specific programs, including transportation, special education and vocational training.

Obama goes head to head with O’Reilly over IRS, Libya The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama defended himself against an array of Republican criticism in an interview during Fox’s Super Bowl pregame show. The president traded barbs with interviewer Bill O’Reilly in a live interview that covered his troubled health care law rollout, the 2012 attacks on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya and revelations that the IRS targeted conservative groups for extra scrutiny. “I try to focus not on the fumbles but on the next plan,” Obama said. Obama would not say why he didn’t fire Health and Human Services Secretary Kath-

leen Sebelius after the failed launch of the government’s online marketplace. He also declined to say that the biggest mistake of his presidency was telling Americans if they liked their health care they could keep it and argued the website is now working the way it’s supposed to. “We’ve got 3 million people signed up so far. We’re about a month behind where we anticipated we wanted to be,” Obama said He defended against O’Reilly’s questions about why administration officials initially described the attack in Benghazi, Libya, as a spontaneous mob protest of an anti-Islamic, American-made video. He rejected “the notion

that we would hide the ball for political purposes when a week later we all said in fact there was a terrorist attack taking place.” “That wouldn’t be a very good cover-up,” Obama said. And he said there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” contributing to the IRS targeting of tea party and other conservative groups when they applied for tax-exempt status. With two hours until kickoff in the Super Bowl, Obama said the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks were too evenly matched to pick a winner. He predicted a score of 24-21, but said he didn’t know which side would come out on top.

Immigration reform may mean high price for U.S. citizenship The ASSOCIATED PRESS EDINBURG, Texas – Hilda Vasquez squirreled away the money for her U.S. citizenship application by selling batches of homemade tamales at South Texas offices. Carmen Zalazar picked up extra baby-sitting jobs at night after caring for kids all day in Houston. The women scrimped and saved for months to pay for the $680 application, but for other applicants in the future, it might not be enough. As President Barack Obama renews his quest for immigration reform, some proposals would impose fines of $2,000 on top of application fees, making the financial hurdles much taller for people who are here illegally. “You have more rights when you are a citizen, like to vote,” said Zalazar, a legal resident. As soon as she started a citizenship class, “I started to

save because I knew otherwise it won’t be possible.” The struggle is familiar to millions of immigrants. A 2012 survey by the Pew Hispanic Center showed that only 46 percent of Hispanic immigrants eligible to become citizens had done so. The top two reasons were lack of English skills and lack of money to pay for the application. Manuel Enrique Angel made learning English his first priority upon arriving in Houston from his native El Salvador two years ago. He now speaks English clearly and deliberately and plans to apply for citizenship as soon as he becomes eligible later this year. Trained as a lawyer in El Salvador, the 28-year-old works as a cook in a Houston burger joint. His wife, an American citizen, is a hair stylist. He estimates it will take him up to eight months to save the money for the citizenship

application. “It’s really hard when you have to pay rent around $600, when you have car notes for $300 and $500,” Angel said. Republican supporters of the proposed fines say penalties are necessary to defend against any appearance that creating a pathway to citizenship amounts to amnesty. Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington-based think tank that supports tighter immigration controls, said if immigrants who are in the country illegally are allowed to seek citizenship, they should have to pay the costs, which will increase if millions of applications need to be processed. However, he said, the costs should not be so high that people can’t afford them. “It’s stupid to price people out of the market,” Krikorian said.

Top Republicans say they stand by Christie The ASSOCIATED PRESS TRENTON, N.J. – High-profile Republicans were adamant Sunday that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie should not resign from his post as chairman of the Republican Governors Association following a former ally’s claim that there is evidence Christie knew about an apparently politically motivated traffic jam earlier than he

has said. The support from former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Wisconsin U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan put Republicans on the offensive and the Democratic chairman of a state legislative committee investigating the September lane closures near the George Washington Bridge on the defensive the day Christie’s state hosts the

Super Bowl. Also Sunday, a member of his administration who was subpoenaed by lawmakers probing the lane closings confirmed she resigned. Chris- N.J. Gov. tina Genovese Chris Christie Renna left the governor’s office Friday, her

Trial set to begin for Fla. man who killed teen over loud music By TAMARA LUSH The Associated Press JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A man with a gun. A black teen, shot dead. Was it murder or self-defense? Jury selection is scheduled to begin today in Florida in the trial of 47-year-old Michael Dunn, a software developer charged with first-degree murder and attempted murder in the November 2012 shooting of 17-year-old Jordan Davis outside a Jacksonville convenience store. Authorities say an argument over loud music led to the shooting. Davis was parked in a vehicle with three friends outside the store. Dunn and his fiancée had just left a wedding reception and were heading back home when they stopped at the store and pulled up next to the sport utility vehicle that Davis was sitting in. An argument began after Dunn told them to turn the music down, police said. One of Davis’ friends turned the music down, but Davis then told him to turn it back up. According to authorities, Dunn became enraged and he and Davis began arguing. One person walking out of the con-

venience store said he heard Dunn say, “You are not going to talk to me like that.” Dunn, who had a concealed weapons permit, pulled a 9 mm handgun from the glove compartment, according to an affidavit, and fired multiple shots into the SUV, striking Davis in the back and groin. Dunn later told police he felt threatened. His attorney has said Dunn Michael saw a gun and shot in self-deDunn fense, perhaps laying the ground work for a case under Florida’s “stand your ground” law. If the case sounds familiar, that’s because it has echoes of a trial that received wide attention and happened only two hours away. George Zimmerman fatally shot Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teen, in Sanford in 2012. Zimmerman, who is Hispanic, was acquitted of second-degree murder in July 2013. He was prosecuted by Jacksonville’s State Attorney Angela Corey, who also will be prosecuting the Dunn case. Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, said he believed Martin was acting

suspicious. Martin and Zimmerman got into a fight and Zimmerman said he thought Martin was reaching for his gun. Authorities didn’t arrest Zimmerman for more than a month after the shooting. Like Zimmerman, Dunn said he felt his life was in danger when he fired the fatal shots. But unlike the Zimmerman-Martin case, several people say they witnessed Dunn shooting Davis, and that there was no physical scuffle beforehand. And while Zimmerman stayed on the scene after the shooting and was not immediately arrested, Dunn was tracked down by police and arrested a day later. According to Jacksonville Police, Dunn fled with his fiancée and drove south more than two hours to his home and never called them. They arrested him the next day after tracking him down through his license plate number. Dunn told officers that Davis threatened him and he thought he saw someone point a shotgun at him from inside the SUV or maybe it was a stick to make him think it was a gun. Under Florida’s self-defense law, Dunn could fire if he believed his life was in danger.

Report: U.S. abortion rate at lowest since 1973 By DAVID CRARY The Associated Press NEW YORK – The U.S. abortion rate declined to its lowest level since 1973, and the number of abortions fell by 13 percent between 2008 and 2011, according the latest national survey of abortion providers conducted by a prominent research institute. The Guttmacher Institute, which supports legal access to abortion, said in a report being issued today that there were about 1.06 million abortions in 2011 – down from about 1.2 million in 2008. Guttmacher’s figures are of interest on both sides of the abortion debate because they are more up-to-date and

Humane Society

in some ways more comprehensive than abortion statistics compiled by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. According to the report, the abortion rate dropped to 16.9 abortions per 1,000 women ages 15-44 in 2011, well below the peak of 29.3 in 1981 and the lowest since a rate of 16.3 in 1973. Guttmacher and other groups supporting abortion rights have been apprehensive about the recent wave of laws restricting abortion access that have been passed in Republican-controlled legislatures. However, the report’s authors said the period that they studied – 2008 to 2011 – predates the major surge of such laws

starting with the 2011 legislative session. The lead author, Rachel Jones, also said there appeared to be no link to a decline in the number of abortion providers. According to the report, the total number of providers dropped by 4 percent, to 1,720, between 2008 and 2011, and the number of abortion clinics declined by just 1 percent to 839. According to Jones, the drop in abortions was likely linked to a steep national decline in overall pregnancy and birth rates. “Contraceptive use improved during this period, as more women and couples were using highly effective long-acting reversible contraceptive methods,” she said.

Mundy to share stories of old meeting notes

‘God particle’ discussed in layman’s terms Northern Illinois University physics professor Dhiman Chakraborty is preparing to reprise his popular talk on the mysterious Higgs boson for the DeKalb community. For decades, the Higgs boson was the holy grail of particle physics. Its detection confirms the existence of the Higgs field, which permeates the universe and gives particles mass. Without the Higgs boson and field, nothing would exist – no animals, oceans, planets or stars. Chakraborty gave a presentation on the elementary particle to a packed house last month at an Irish pub in Geneva. His next talk will be from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Feb. 11 at O’Leary’s Restaurant and Pub, 260 E. Lincoln Highway in DeKalb. The free event is part of the STEM Café series run by NIU STEM Outreach. It will provide a layman’s perspective on the profound nature of the

theory predicting the Higgs and talk about how scientists confirmed the theory experimentally. Chakraborty leads a group of NIU scientists and students who are members of the ATLAS collaboration at CERN, one of the European laboratory’s two experiments that jointly discovered the Higgs boson last year. “This discussion is geared for the general public,” said Chakraborty, who received NIU’s top honor for research, the Presidential Research Professorship, in 2011. Famously dubbed the “God particle,” the Higgs boson took thousands of scientists nearly five decades to discover, at a cost that one journalist estimated at $13.25 billion. Over the past 19 months, there has been plenty of hype about “the Higgs,” beginning with the boson’s discovery in 2012 at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva,

Dhiman Chakraborty Switzerland. In November, the Nobel Prize in physics went to Peter Higgs and Francois Englert, two of the scientists who developed theories in the 1960s that predicted the elementary particle. Over the past two decades, Chakraborty has helped shed light on the building blocks of our universe, making contributions to scientific understanding of the subatomic

world, the discovery of the top quark at Fermilab and the pursuit of the Higgs. Geared for the general public, NIU’s monthly STEM Cafés present cutting-edge research in science, technology, engineering and math, followed by question-and-answer sessions led by NIU’s STEM experts.

There are many amazing stories in Sycamore’s history connected to famous people and important events. However, sometimes ordinary daily life can be equally entertaining and significant. Starting in 2008, in preparation for the city’s sesquicentennial, Mayor Ken Mundy began studying the historic ledgers containing the Sycamore City Council meeting minutes. Mundy has reviewed the city council minutes from 1858-1957. At noon on Thursday, Mundy will share some of his favorite stories based on his research from the years 1858-1900. “We are very excited to have the mayor share his research as part of a Brown Bag lunch,” Sycamore History Museum Executive Director Michelle Donahoe said in a news release. “Currently, we are preparing for our next exhibit, ‘General Dutton’s America,’ which will span from 1840-1900. The first part of the exhibit will explore Sycamore as a pioneer town, and the material the mayor will be sharing will provide a great insight to the daily life in our community during this time period.” Mundy’s talk will explore many of the “first” elections, along with information about the creation and decisions connected to city water, steam power, fire, police, and paved streets. The history museum’s Brown Bag lunches take place on the first Thursday of the month. During the winter, they are held at the DeKalb County Community Foundation’s Freight Room, 475 DeKalb Ave. This event is free and open to the public; donations are welcome. Bring your lunch, and the museum provides coffee and cookies. For more information, call 815-895-5762 or visit sycamorehistory.org.

Centers CEO Dennis Mestrich, approximately 2,000 units of blood have been lost in January due to the severe temperatures and an increase in illness- related cancellations. Included in this number was the cancellation of some 21 mobile blood drives. To meet the needs of the 49 hospitals served by Heartland Blood Centers, almost 600 units of blood are needed every day. In order to rebuild the blood inventories that have been so greatly impacted by the adverse conditions, Heatland is pleading for healthy community members to reschedule their cancelled appointments and all other eligible blood donors to make an appointment as soon as possible. Heartland Blood Centers of DeKalb will hold the following blood drives in February:

Hy-Vee Dietitian Hy-

Smooth, decadent d den chocolate hoc is a classic Valentine’s Day indulgence. But do you know dark varieties of chocolate are actually good for the heart, too? Here’s why… The darker the chocolate, the healthier it is for you and your Valentine. Cacao beans contain nutrients such as iron, potassium and fiber, and also a potent class of antioxidants called flavonoids. The higher the percentage of cacao in a chocolate bar, the darker the chocolate, and the higher it is in flavonoid antioxidants. These flavonoids appear to have beneficial effects on the body, such as relaxing blood vessels, promoting healthy circulation and playing a role in healthy blood pressure levels.

As with many of the finer things in life, less can be more. The health benefits associated with dark chocolate consumption have been seen in modest consumption of approximately one ounce – one-third of a Zöet bar - a few times per week. Darker chocolate’s characteristic bitterness is best appreciated through pairing it well with complementary flavors. If you’re new to dark chocolate, start with 57% cacao Zöet dark chocolate and work your way up to higher percentages of cacao over time. The smoothness of Zöet premium Belgian chocolate will make a dark chocolate aficionado out of anyone!

DeKalb resident Dorothy Bierman, 86, gets into her Buick LeSabre before a drive Friday.

‘You can’t replace good, old-fashioned police work’ • SHERIFF Continued from page A1 who worked with five police dogs during 32 years, said he has learned a lot from Scott. “Early on, he gave me good advice on working the dog,” Dumdie said. There have been many innovations and technological advancements in law enforcement in the past 45 years, but basic policing has not changed, Scott said. “You can’t replace good, old-fashioned police work,” Scott said. County Administrator Gary Hanson appreciates Scott’s professionalism and passion for law enforcement. “It’s a pleasure to work with someone with high integrity,” Hanson said. “We don’t often agree, particularly on financial matters, but at the end of the day, we always reach a workable solution.” Along with the work itself, Scott said he appreciates the opportunity to work with so many high-quality men and women, not only in his de-

partment, but throughout the county. “We have good relationships with all the departments, but particularly Sycamore, DeKalb and NIU now,” Scott said. Those high-quality people in Scott’s department do not go unrecognized, Dumdie said. “When the sheriff hears about the good work his people do, he recognizes it, in one way or another,” Dumdie said. For example, Dumdie said, Scott posts letters he receives from the community that commend the staff. “It’s a nice incentive to let people know they are appreciated,” Dumdie said. Even after 45 years, Scott said he enjoys going to work every day. And he plans to run for an eighth term this year. Scott, a Republican, has no challenger in the upcoming March primary. “Without good people here over the years, I would not still be here,” Scott said. “Whether you believe in scripture or not, I think our function as law enforcement is a ministry for good.”

Actor struggled with drug addiction • HOFFMAN Continued from page A1 controlled, slovenly or fastidious. The stage-trained actor’s rumpled naturalism brought him four Academy Award nominations – for “Capote,” “The Master,” “Doubt” and “Charlie Wilson’s War” – and three Tony nominations for his work on Broadway, including his portrayal of the beaten and weary Willy Loman in “Death of a Salesman.” Hoffman spoke candidly

over the years about his struggles with drug addiction. After 23 years sober, he admitted in interviews last year to falling off the wagon and developing a heroin problem that led to a stint in rehab. “No words for this. He was too great and we’re too shattered,” said Mike Nichols, who directed Hoffman in “Charlie Wilson’s War” and “Death of a Salesman.” The law enforcement officials said Hoffman’s body was discovered in a bathroom in his Greenwich Village apartment by his assistant and a friend who made the 911 call.

offer Rules of the Road review courses to help seniors pass the test. “Before approaching your loved one, it might help to enlist the help of a sibling or their doctor,” King said. “Give specific examples of something they did that wasn’t safe, that worried you for their safety.” Factors that contribute to safety issues for seniors include slower reaction time, depth perception changes,

vision or hearing problems, decreased ability to focus, feelings of nervousness or anxiety and general medical issues. In the DeKalb and Sycamore area, King said alternative transportation is available through TransVac. Some people know when it’s time to give up their keys, King said. “If it wasn’t for VAC, this old, blind lady couldn’t go anywhere,” said Betty Stone, 86, of DeKalb. Stone said she has vision problems because of macular degeneration.

Shirley Woody, 76, of DeKalb suffers the same condition, but said she’s still able to drive during the day. “Sunglasses help,” Woody said. “I passed my last test.” Woody’s husband, L.B. Woody, 82, still drives them both. Advanced age and slower reflexes aren’t the only reasons for giving up one’s license. DeKalb resident Allan Martin, 62, said he has had a number of health issues, the latest being cataracts. “It’s just not safe for me to drive after dark in an unfamiliar area,” Martin said. “I

may have to take myself off the road.” King said some refuse to give up their keys, and that’s when it gets difficult. “It’s really hard, but sometimes you have to go to extreme measures like taking away keys,” King said. “You have to think of their safety.” Dorothy Bierman, 86, of DeKalb still drives and has a supportive son who has taught driver’s education to high school students. “My son said if I ever failed my driving test,” Bierman said, “he would take me out and help me pass it again.”

Support for advisory tax referendum

Conservative politics vs. immigration reform Republicans are again at war with themselves over immigration reform. Ideally, they would agree on the need to legalize millions of illegal immigrants now here and to better control the number of future unskilled foreigners competing with our struggling working class. Unfortunately, neither the Republican Party’s leadership nor its conservative opposition is entirely with the program. The conservative base doesn’t want to legalize, and the leadership wants a generous supply of cheap labor. Seeing this rift, some Republican strategists advise simply avoiding the conversation altogether. One of them, Bill Kristol, holds that with midterm elections coming, the smart politics for Republicans is to bang on Obamacare rather than get into an intraparty fight over immigration. One could counter-argue that letting immigration reform fester would not be politically wise, given the growing clout of Latino voters. Meanwhile, the share of Americans wanting to repeal the Affordable Care Act has fallen to 34 percent, according to a recent CBS poll. This number will probably go far lower by Election Day as the dust settles and the public becomes familiar with Obamacare’s benefits. As for immigration reform, the conservative base is justified in casting a wary eye at the GOP leadership’s intentions. The leaders’ business allies, notably the Chamber of Commerce, want low wages. If they can get them through illegal immigration, fine. But if they can suppress pay through big guest-worker programs, also

VIEWS Froma Harrop fine. Numbers matter, and the more lowskilled workers, legal or otherwise, the lower the wages. So the conservative base should keep a watchful eye. When Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., warns against “a larger flow of immigration that threatens the financial future of middle-class Americans,” he has a point – although mass immigration by low-skilled workers threatens mainly poorer Americans. These conservatives also worry that granting any kind of legal status would encourage more illegal immigration. But the status quo is what most fosters illegal immigration. Jobs are the magnet for the vast majority of undocumented workers. The bipartisan Senate proposal for reform would go far in closing down the U.S. labor market to those without papers. For example, it would (finally) require fraud-proof biometric ID for all job applicants. And it would seriously punish employers who break the law. Amnesty for otherwise law-abiding illegal entrants is the political price of restoring order in the immigration program. Conservatives should accept it and drop the charge that “they” broke U.S. law. It’s true – they did – but this was a law that the American government held in contempt.

And there are moral considerations. Many illegal immigrants have become virtual Americans, settled in their neighborhoods and key employees for local businesses. Their children are more often than not culturally American. With logic on reform’s side, Kristol must turn to an emotional standard from the right’s political playlist: “President Obama obviously can’t be trusted.” That’s an odd accusation, in that Obama has been the only president in recent memory to enforce the weak law we now have. Obama’s administration has deported 2 million illegal immigrants, a record for any president. Immigration activists urged him to announce an end to deportations in the State of the Union address. He did not. The conservative base already knows that it’s at odds with some of the party’s business interests. Perhaps it should take a giant leap and admit to some shared concerns with labor unions -- and many Hispanics, who want the same job and wage security that they do. Anyhow, there are things besides politics. Like governing. After the midterms, the politicos will be gearing up for the 2016 presidential election, and then after that, another midterm. So how about solving a problem now and then?

President Andrew Jackson 1st to carry big stick By JOHN DICKERSON Slate WASHINGTON – One hundred and seventy-nine years ago this week, President Andrew Jackson had a close call. The 67-year-old president emerged from a funeral in the House chamber and was set upon by Richard Lawrence, a housepainter who was off that day. Initiating what would become the first assassination attempt in American history, Lawrence tried to fire his pistol. It made a large bang, but the president did not fall. The percussion cap had detonated, but the gunpowder failed to ignite. Jackson then brained his attacker with his cane. The blow did not significantly muddle Lawrence because he was already very muddled in the head. He had attacked the seventh president because he believed that the U.S. government owed him a large

sum of money. Jackson, who was engaged in a brutal struggle with the Whigs over the National Bank, was nevertheless not in control of it or any other bank. Still, Lawrence would not be deterred from his belief that if he killed Jackson the funds would be released and he would take his place as the rightful King of England and Rome. Although he was confused about the line of succession, he was thorough. He produced a second pistol, which he also attempted to fire. It too would not discharge. Then Jackson was assisted by others, including Davy Crockett of Tennessee, then a member of Congress, who was apparently serving on the Readiness-in-Case-of-Crazy-Historical-Moments subcommittee of the House It-Can’t-Get-Any-Weirder Committee. Lawrence was subdued and ultimately

found not guilty by reason of insanity and very bad luck. It was later discovered that he had asked the Jackson administration for a civil service appointment and was denied. He lived the rest of his life in an institution. Researchers at the Smithsonian Institution studied Lawrence’s derringers a century after the assassination attempt. Both fired on the first try. Five months later, Jackson would also receive another threat. A man wrote him a letter from a Philadelphia hotel promising to slit his throat while he slept if he did not release two pirates being held in prison. Nothing became of it. The killing of a president would be left to the correspondent’s son, John Wilkes Booth.

We usually don’t support placing advisory referendums on the ballot. They can confuse voters and, because they’re nonbinding, the outcome means little if anything. But if state Rep. Jack Franks’ attempt to get a statewide advisory referendum on the Nov. 4 ballot keeps on the minds of voters and politicians alike the issue of escalating property taxes and the irresponsible governmental bodies that are responsible for it, then For the record we stand firmly behind it. As home prices plumWe’re certain that if meted in the years after the a statewide advisory housing bubble burst, many referendum were to make – although not all – local it to the ballot, the results governments continued to would be overwhelmingly raise their levies, infuriatone-sided. Taxpayers have ing many taxpayers. For had enough of continually the past few years, Franks, D-Marengo, has tried to pass being asked for more. legislation that would forbid governments from raising their tax levies if their overall assessed value drops from the previous year. Since his colleagues in the General Assembly continuously blocked his efforts, Franks is back this year with House Bill 4273. It seeks to put a nonbinding advisory question on the ballot, asking voters whether they would support essentially the same legislation that Franks hasn’t been able to get approved in Springfield. “I think we need to do this because I’m not sure the local taxing bodies are hearing the complaints of their constituents.” Franks told Shaw Media reporter Kevin Craver last month. “The way it’s structured now, they can raise taxes with impunity, regardless of property values.” We realize the idea faces an uphill battle again. The likelihood that state lawmakers would approve a nonbinding referendum on this topic is slim. But we appreciate Franks’ efforts, and we hope he succeeds. We’re certain that if the referendum were to make it to the ballot, the results would be overwhelmingly one-sided. Taxpayers have had enough of continually being asked for more. Some elected officials, such as those in Sycamore, which has maintained a flat property tax levy for five years, have acknowledged this. Others know it, too. They just choose to ignore it. And the steady loss of taxpayers and jobs to other states with more reasonable tax burdens has been ignored for far too long. That’s why keeping this topic in the front of voters’ minds is a good thing.

SEATTLE DEFENSE OVERWHELMS MISTAKE-PRONE MANNING, DENVER

For the love of Osweiler, what’s up with Manning?

Seahawks’ defense owns the night in New Jersey EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – A funny thing happened Sunday at Super Bowl XLVIII in MetLife Stadium. 82,529 fans showed up expecting one of the classic matchups of all time, and the Seattle Seahawks arrived ready to play the game of their lives, but the Denver Broncos showed up for a pillow fight. To say the 43-8 final score was an afterthought is an understatement. It’s beyond unfortunate when the highlights of the Super Bowl are the Budweiser “Best Buds” commercial and the halftime show. Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers showed more aggression than the Broncos did at any point in the game. Basically, the Seahawks won the coin toss, with Broadway Joe Namath and Phil Simms doing the honors, and the

game was over. On the first play from scrimmage, Denver center Manny Ramirez snapped the ball over Peyton Manning’s head for a safety, and Seattle was up, 2-0, and never looked back. Ramirez took the blame. “We were all listening for the snap call, and I thought I heard it,” he said. “I didn’t know till I got to the sideline Peyton was actually walking towards me when I snapped it.”

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – I remember watching Peyton Manning play quarterback in practice at the University of Tennessee. It seems like almost two decades ago, and – holy Omaha! – it was. He was a young kid, and he was wandering behind the line of scrimmage, yelling and pointing like somebody who had dropped the pages to his term paper. Nothing really has changed since he was the Southeastern Conference freshman of the year in 1994 and the Heisman Trophy runner-up in 1997, except that now he gets paid a lot of money to do what he always did. So when Manning walked toward the line of scrimmage on the Denver Broncos’ first offensive play, hollering as usual, it was shocking to see center

VIEWS Rick Telander Manny Ramirez snap the ball prematurely over Manning’s right shoulder. The ball rolled untouched into the end zone, where Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno fell on it for a safety. Ugly? How about fastest-score-in-Super Bowl-history ugly. Something bad was unfolding here, something like never before. Stupid screw-ups happen, but do they happen to Hall of Fame-to-be quarterbacks under the brightest spotlight?

Barbs’ steady progression showcased in win over Sycamore at Convo Center

By ANTHONY ZILIS sports@daily-chronicle.com eKALB – The crowd at the Northern Illinois’ Convocation Center for Friday’s DeKalb-Sycamore boys basketball game was larger than most of the young Barbs had ever played in front of. The backdrop behind the baskets was nothing like any gym they’ve played in this season, and the pressure of being on the floor in a game some of them dreamed of playing in for years was intense. Sophomore Luke Davis III and junior Jace Kitchen both admitted they felt plenty of nerves leading up to the opening whistle of their Convocation Center debuts. “When we were at school, everyone was like, ‘You’re a sophomore, and you’re starting, what are you thinking?’” Davis said. “I just told everybody I was real nervous about this game.” You never would have been able to tell in DeKalb’s 59-51 win. Davis, a 6-foot-6 center, had an immediate impact on the game. On the first play, he tipped a Sycamore pass that led to a steal, and on the other end of the court, he jumped out of bounds to keep a ball in play before finishing a threepoint play. Kitchen was the offensive star of the night. He hit a pair of 3s in the first quarter, when the Barbs seemingly couldn’t miss, and scored 20 points. The play he’ll be

Murray beats Querrey; Brits top U.S. in Davis Cup SAN DIEGO – Wimbledon champion Andy Murray beat Sam Querrey, 7-6 (5), 6-7 (3), 6-1, 6-3, to clinch Britain’s opening-round Davis Cup victory against the United States on Sunday at Petco Park. Murray won his 18th-straight Davis Cup singles match, and Britain beat the Americans for the first time since 1935. Britain advanced to the World Group quarterfinals for the first time since 1986. It will face Italy, which defeated Argentina. Murray split tiebreakers with Querrey in the first two sets, breezed through the third set in 29 minutes and won the match when Querrey returned a serve long. Murray leaned back and pumped both fists and then swatted the ball into the stands on the opposite end of the temporary court built in left field at the downtown home of baseball’s San Diego Padres. He joined his teammates in a celebration huddle on the red clay court. Britain clinched the match at 3-1. The fourth singles match was canceled.

NFL PLAYOFFS

Breaking down Bulls’ trade bait

SUPER BOWL Sunday At East Rutherford, N.J. Seattle 43, Denver 8

NBA By JOE COWLEY EASTERN CONFERENCE

jcowley@suntimes.com SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Bulls center Joakim Noah takes joy in proving people wrong. He did it when he came out of Florida and strutted his way into the NBA, and he did it when he was named an NBA All-Star for the second consecutive season. He isn’t done, either. Now it’s about putting a short-handed roster, without injured Derrick Rose and traded Luol Deng, on his shoulders and leading it on a playoff run. “It [stinks] to be a reporter, man,” Noah said last week of the doubters he and his teammates have heard this season. “It’s not about what people say; it’s about what we think. It’s about what people think in this locker room. I just appreciate my teammates’ effort, and I think that’s bigger than anything.” Noah established himself as an elite Eastern Conference center last season, but this season is different. The Bulls’ front office is open for business with the Feb. 20 trade deadline approaching, but Noah is an untouchable right now, one of only three the Bulls have. The breakdown:

THE UNTOUCHABLES Rose: His knee injuries and huge contract make Rose untradable, even if the Bulls wanted to undergo a total facelift. No, Rose is here to stay. And, if healthy, there’s no reason he can’t return to being a top-three point guard in the NBA. Noah: There are better scoring and rebounding centers, but Noah is the standard in

The Bulls’ Derrick Rose (left) watches play against the Orlando Magic on Jan. 15 with teammate Joakim Noah during the first half in Orlando, Fla. passing big men. He’s basically a point center in coach Tom Thibodeau’s offense. Even more impressive is what doesn’t appear in the box score. His leadership, energy and determination make Noah a keeper. Thibodeau: The Bulls need Thibodeau more than Thibodeau needs the Bulls. There are only a handful of NBA coaches who actually have a direct influence on how games play out, and Thibodeau is one of them.

THE KEEPERS – UNLESS ... Taj Gibson: There are reasons why Gibson’s stock is skyrocketing: an aggressive inside game, an improved mid-range jumper, a motor on defense and a contract that is fiscally attractive for the next

three seasons. But unless the Bulls know trading Gibson will assure them of landing a player such as Carmelo Anthony or LeBron James, he will stay. Jimmy Butler: There have been more downs than ups for Butler offensively this season, but he’s the perfect player for Thibodeau’s defense. He works too hard for his offense not to improve. Tony Snell: In a package for an elite player? Done. But Snell isn’t even close to reaching his ceiling. He has a mentality Thibodeau loves and doesn’t flinch in big moments.

LET’S TALK Mike Dunleavy: At less than $1.5 million for the rest of this season and $3 million next

season, Dunleavy is a bargain for a catch-and-shoot forward. That makes him a get on the trade market, and it only takes one general manager to overpay. Kirk Hinrich: The trade rumors have quieted. There just isn’t a market for a veteran backup point guard who will be a free agent this offseason. But it only takes one injury for that to change, and Thibodeau seems to be sold on D.J. Augustin anyway. Carlos Boozer: The Bulls would love to get some calls about Boozer, but it’s not happening because of his contract situation and because he hasn’t been playing well in the last month. If the right call did come in, general manager Gar Forman gladly would drive Boozer to the airport.

Blackhawks left wing Brandon Saad (left) celebrates with teammate defenseman Brent Seabrook on Saturday after scoring a goal against the San Jose Sharks during the third period in San Jose, Calif. gotten me more comfortable and confident,” Saad said. “I’m keeping it simple, sticking to little things, getting to the net, and my teammates are making nice plays. I’m just finishing them.” As a rookie in last year’s lockout-shortened season, Saad had 10 goals and 17 assists, numbers bound to give any young player confidence. He would need that this season. Adapting to new line-

mates is standard for Quenneville-coached teams. But that doesn’t mean it’s easy for a young player to do. “I’m pretty comfortable with it right now,” Saad said. “You get used to it, and we’ve got a lot of good players on this team. So whatever line I’m on, I’m looking to contribute and play well. “Especially with Q – he likes to mix things up, especially when things aren’t going

well. Like I said, I’m fortunate to play with some great players here, and it’s helping out.” There’s more to come from Saad as far as Quenneville is concerned. In 57 games this season, he has 18 goals and 22 assists. Quenneville said his speed stands out as the asset that makes him most dangerous in the offensive zone. “He scored some nice power-play goals,” Quenneville said. “He’s good with the puck – he’s got some speed, protects it well. I just think that he’s one of those players that should keep getting better with time.” Note: Winger Marian Hossa did not participate in practice Sunday, the Hawks’ first practice of the road trip. He also didn’t take part in the morning skate before playing in Saturday’s loss. Coach Joel Quenneville reiterated Sunday that the day off was strictly a maintenance day. “I know that your body usually tells you if you need a day off,” Quenneville said. “So we’ll let him tell us, and he has that privilege.”

Sophomore Saad leading Hawks on road trip LOS ANGELES – Brandon Saad has done his best to dispel the idea of a sophomore slump. The Blackhawks’ second-year winger even has coach Joel Quenneville throwing out the notion as it pertains to Saad. “Coming into the league, having a strong start this year, sophomore jinx or the bounce factor, that was a possibility, and he hasn’t let that happen or disrupt his game,” Quenneville said. How has he done that, exactly? By finding himself around the puck. During this road trip in particular, Saad has been the Hawks’ most dangerous player. Through three games on the trip, he has five points. On Saturday, he scored the game-tying power-play goal in the third period that salvaged a point for the Hawks in an eventual shootout loss to the Sharks in San Jose. “Last year, I was more just coming in and working hard, but this year, being more experienced and the success I did last year, it’s definitely

missed. Ball State (4-15, 1-7) led by 15 in the first half and 10 in the second half before the Huskies came back. Northern Illinois took its first lead since the game’s opening minutes at 55-54 with less than four minutes to go, setting up a tight finish. Bond scored 16 while Jesse Berry had 13 and Zavier Turner added 11.

Women’s basketball falls on the road: At Kalamazoo, Mich., the Northern Illinois women’s basketball team defense held Western Michigan to less than 60 points and caused 17 turnovers, but the Huskies were unable to sustain an offensive rhythm against the Broncos as they fell to WMU, 56-43. “It was a really disappoint-

ing loss tonight because our defense was able to get stops when it needed to in the second half and caused Western Michigan to commit a lot of turnovers,” NIU coach Kathi Bennett said in a release. Pulliam led the Huskies (811, 4-5 Mid-American Conference) with 11 points against the Broncos (9-11, 5-4 MAC). The Huskies will return to action at 7 p.m. Wednesday against Akron in DeKalb.

Gymnastics picks up conference win: The Northern Illinois women’s gymnastics team defeated Western Michigan, 192.450-191.600, in DeKalb. Trailing by three-tenths of a point after faltering on the uneven parallel bars, the Huskies

(2-1, 2-0 Mid-American Conference) outscored the Broncos on both balance beam and floor exercise. In the end, it was the 48.52547.525 difference on balance beam that provided the victory margin. Senior Natasha Jufko won the balance beam event with a 9.850, tying her career-best score. Jaelyn Olsen won the vault title for the second straight week as she scored a 9.800. The Huskies posted a 48.250 on floor exercise behind senior Kim Gotlund and junior Kelly Nortz, who tied for first with 9.775s. Gotlund won the all-around title with a 38.550 total.

PREP ROUNDUP

Sycamore’s Fank takes 23rd at state bowling meet DAILY CHRONICLE sports@daily-chronicle.com Sycamore bowler Brendan Fank finished 23rd at the IHSA state bowling tournament at St. Clair Bowl in Fairview Heights with a grand total of 2,609 pins from the two days. Fank had three-game series’ of 697 and 616 in Saturday’s final day. He rolled a perfect 300 in his third game. Fank also had games of 204 and 242. “Although we didn’t advance as a team to Day 2 of the tournament, all of these boys laid it all out there on the lanes this weekend,” Sycamore coach Aaron Williams said. “I am so proud of this team and what they have accomplished this year. “Having three freshmen and a sophomore on my varsity team this year was a lot of work in the beginning, but to the credit of those boys they pulled it together and got it done not only for Sycamore but for themselves and their teammates. The future looks bright for Sycamore bowling.” The Spartans qualified for state as a team but failed to qualify for the second round, finishing Day 1 in 15th place.

GIRLS GYMNASTICS Co-op wins conference: The DeKalb/Sycamore co-op finished with 140.40 points to capture the Independent Conference meet at Oswego.

WRESTLING Cogs seventh at Rockford Lutheran: Genoa-Kingston finished 7th in the 13-team Rockford Lutheran Tournament, as the Cogs tallied 80.5 points. Medal winners for GK included Brent Dehmlow (2nd, 113 pounds), Christian Ordlock (4th, 120), Danny Peters (3rd, 138), Joe Murray (2nd, 160) and Tyler Bennett (3rd, 285).

Kaneland beats Batavia:

Erik Anderson for Shaw Media

Kaneland’s Dane Goodenough pins down Batavia’s Marc Goodin in a headlock Friday in the 138-pound weight class during a wrestling match in Batavia. Goodenough defeated Goodin, and Kaneland won the match.

“Although we didn’t advance as a team to Day 2 of the tournament, all of these boys laid it all out there on the lanes this weekend.”

drea Strohmaier added six. “It was our first game in 16 days,” G-K coach Kyle Henkel said. “I thought the girls really came out and played hard. We led into the fourth quarter.”

Aaron Williams

Indian Creek, 66-58, handing the Timberwolves their first loss in the Little Ten Conference. Both teams came into the game unbeaten in league play. Garrett Post led Indian Creek (11-6, 5-1 LTC) with 16 points and 15 rebounds. Garrison Govig added 15 points and 10 rebounds for the T’wolves.

Sycamore bowling coach Lucca had eight points and 12 assists. G-K is now 14-6 and 6-1 in Big Northern East play.

GIRLS BASKETBALL Cogs suffer loss: Winnebago defeated Genoa-Kingston, 4130, in a Big Northern Conference crossover game. Julie Galauner led the Cogs with 15 points, while An-

LATE FRIDAY BOYS BASKETBALL T’wolves fall: Newark beat

Mercado has big game for Hawks on senior night: Hiawatha senior Mike Mercado scored 31 points against Serena, but it wasn’t enough as the Hawks suffered a 74-61 loss.

Pancho Garcia had 17 points for Hiawatha. “I was proud of the kids and their effort,” Hawks coach Franz Schumacher said. “They’re really working hard.”

Kaneland beats St. Edward: A few fans seated in the front row of St. Edward’s home bleachers shifted back one row Friday at the request of a pregame public address announcement. The maneuver protected an already cozy sideline from getting slick, but every other spot on the floor was fair game for the Kaneland boys basketball team. Senior John Pruett weaved through Green Wave defenders most often, scoring a career-high 29 points in a 65-55 victory. Fittingly, Pruett shrugged his shoulders and

credited some basic tutelage from coach Brian Johnson, who won in his return to his alma mater. “Whatever I thought was open, I went to it. Just tried to score,” Pruett said. “Just go up strong and try to finish.” Classmate Tyler Carlson joined Pruett in double figures with 19 points, providing some welcome stability for the 10-6 Knights, who were playing for the first time since Jan. 17.

GIRLS BASKETBALL Knights drop conference game: K a n e l a n d l o s t t o Yorkville, 53-35, in a Northern Illinois Big 12 East game. Kelly Wallner finished with a double-double with 10 points and 13 rebounds for the Knights (9-13, 2-4 NI Big 12 East).

Kaneland’s hopes for victory Friday rested in the hands of a wrestler who could count his varsity experience using one hand. Freshman Hayden Patterson’s 11-2 victory in the final match of the night at 132 pounds gave the Knights (15-7) a 37-32 nonconference victory over Batavia. “It was really hard,” Patterson said of dealing with the pressure on him. “I had to keep going and couldn’t give up. I know we were both sweating, and I couldn’t even grip anything.” Pins by Dane Goodenough (138 pounds), Riley Vanik (145), and Tom Price (170) helped the Knights jump out to a 24-0 lead, along with decisions from George Strang (152) and Austin Parks (160). Austin Kedzie added a pin for the Knights at 106. Kaneland’s Matthew Redman held off a late charge by Joe Posledni to hang on for a 12-11 victory at 126. • Kevin Druley, Dennis D. Jacobs and Kevin Murphy contributed to this report.

Barbs make Convo Center debuts • SHOW Continued from page B1 Dre Brown, another Convocation Center debutant, smothered Daily Chronicle All-Area forward Devin Mottet on the defensive end. Despite picking up three fouls in the first half, Davis was able to make life difficult for talented forward Ben Niemann, who was stifled after taking over early in the third quarter. “Some of these guys, with their youth and inexperience, they have no fear because they haven’t been here,” DeKalb coach Dave Rohlman said. “Obviously the steal and

the dunk was a tremendous play, but I don’t know how many defensive rebounds [Kitchen] secured for us. Another thing that’s not going to show up is Dre Brown, the way he played defense on Mottet … [Davis] played within himself.” Just six weeks earlier, the Barbs lost to Sycamore by 17 on their home floor after a third quarter collapse. But Saturday’s win wasn’t completely unexpected for coach Dave Rohlman, even on such a big stage. This team has undeniable talent and has shown marked improvement since their last bout with their biggest rivals. Since the Chuck Dayton tournament

over winter break, they’ve made steady strides, but inexperience still kept them from fulfilling their potential. On Friday, they showed that they’ll be a threat, not only in years to come but for the rest of the season. “After Christmas, I thought we were significantly better, then after the Martin Luther King tournament at Hononegah [in mid-January], we took another step forward,” Rohlman said. “I certainly think we’ve taken another step forward [Friday]. That’s a very quality basketball team, and I’m really proud that we were able to come out and beat those guys.”

Daily Chronicle / Daily-Chronicle.com

Pregnant young wife needs to plan for future Dear Abby: One of my childhood friends got married at a young age. She’s now expecting and due in a few months. Every day she messages me on Facebook about something else her husband has done to cause her emotional stress. For example, a few weeks ago she found flirtatious erotic messages he had exchanged with another girl. I want to help her because we have been friends for so long. We’re both 19, and I feel I should know how to help her, but since I’ve never been married I don’t know what to

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips say. Any advice? – Friend in Kentucky Dear Friend: What a sad situation. Your friend is married to someone who apparently doesn’t want to be married – and it’s open to question whether he will be much of a parent. If she has family, she should talk to them about this because she may need their help soon. She should also

make plans for how she will support herself and the child, because her husband appears to be a flake. Please pass this advice along. And let this be a lesson to you about the importance of achieving independence before assuming the responsibility of parenthood. Dear Abby: My mother is in her mid-90s. Several of her lifelong friends, widows, still live in their own homes, as she does. However, they no longer drive. A phone call would help them communicate directly

with each other about life situations, but it doesn’t seem to happen. Instead of calling and talking to each other, they hear about each other third-hand. Is it typical for the elderly to abandon each other and be so cruel? If so, what could help people communicate better regardless of age? – Concerned Son in Colorado Dear Son: Not everyone in their 90s ages the same way. Some individuals are still active; others are less so. When seniors stop driving, there can be a tendency for

them to become isolated and depressed. Others may be taking medications that affect their memory. A way to help people in your mother’s age group would be to see that they have transportation to a senior center, where they can mingle face-to-face if they wish. I recommend this for your mother and her friends because I’m sure none of them are being deliberately cruel.

Boost your energy with good diet, exercise Dear Dr. K: Do energy-boosting foods and beverages work? Are they safe? Dear Reader: A multitude of herbs, supplements, soft drinks and so-called energy drinks claim to boost energy. Here’s a look at some of these substances – and whether the evidence supports their claims: • Chromium picolinate is a mineral marketed to build muscle, burn fat and increase energy and athletic performance. Research does not support these claims. • Coenzyme Q10. Studies have shown coenzyme Q10 supplements to improve exercise capacity in people with heart disease. Their effects in people without heart disease are not clear. • Creatine. There is some

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff evidence that creatine can build muscle mass and improve athletic performance requiring short bursts of muscle activity, at least in younger adults. But it does not appear to build muscle in older adults or reduce fatigue in people of any age. • DHEA is touted to boost energy and also prevent cancer, heart disease and infectious disease, among other things. But this hormone has no proven benefits, and it may pose serious health risks. • Ephedra was banned by the FDA in 2004 because of

major safety concerns, but it remains available for sale on the Internet. Ephedra is not safe in any amount. One night years ago I got a call from the emergency room. A patient of mine had fainted, and when she arrived at the ER it became clear that she was having dangerous heart rhythms. Shortly after arriving, she started having a very dangerous rhythm, ventricular tachycardia. If she had not been in a medical setting where we could treat her, she could have died. She had no underlying heart disease – but she admitted that she had been taking ephedra to boost energy. • Ginkgo biloba does not appear to improve cognition (thinking) in people with Alzheimer’s disease. Regarding

memory in people without dementia, the evidence is mixed. • Ginseng. This relatively safe and popular herb may reduce fatigue and enhance stamina and endurance. It can boost energy without causing a crash, unlike sugar. • Guarana. This herb induces a feeling of energy because it’s a natural source of caffeine. Taken with other caffeinated beverages, however, it could ultimately lower your energy by interfering with sleep. • Vitamin B12. Some doctors give injections of vitamin B12 as energy boosters. But unless you have true B12 deficiency, vitamin B12 treatments are unlikely to boost your energy. Instead of looking to sup-

plements for energy, switch to a healthful diet loaded with vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, lean protein and unsaturated fats. And exercise more. That’s a much better way to beat an energy shortage. I know that some of you may say: “There he goes again: Exercise and a healthy diet are the solution for everything.” But they really do improve well-being. I’ve had many patients who told me, in so many words, “I don’t have enough energy to exercise.” But I pushed them, they started regular exercise, and two to three months later had more energy than they’d had for years.

8CROSSWORD

If he does this, he cannot have that Rene Descartes, a French philosopher, mathematician and writer who spent most of his life in the Dutch Republic and died in 1650, said in a lecture, “And now we come to the two operations of our understanding, intuition and deduction, on which alone we have said we must rely in the acquisition of knowledge.” At the bridge table, we gain an understanding of a deal primarily by using deduction – although some players also employ intuition. If you wish to test your deductive powers, cover the West and South hands. The contract is three no-trump. West leads a fourth-highest heart two and declarer calls for dummy’s four. Would you put in the 10 or rise with the king? Why? This is a trap deal for North and South. They have 29 high-card points, but cannot, in theory, make game. However, if any game is going to get through, it is three notrump. Often, when dummy has the heart queen and East the king-10 over her, it is right for East to play his 10. But not in this instance. If South is permitted to take the first trick with his heart jack, he will then cash four clubs, four diamonds and the spade ace to score up an overtrick. It is right to play the 10 when South has the ace, but is that possible? No! If South had started with ace-low in hearts, he would have called for dummy’s queen, hoping the lead was away from the king. So East should play his king at the first trick, confident it will win, then return the five, his original fourth-highest. The defenders will run the suit for down one.

Seattle’s Malcolm Smith celebrates with the Vince Lombardi Trophy after Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday against the Denver Broncos in East Rutherford, N.J. The Seahawks won, 43-8.

SUPER BOWL MVP

MR. SMITH GOES TO NEW JE Seattle defender is third linebacker in NFL history to take By HOWARD FENDRICH The Associated Press EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Malcolm Smith always was ready to step in when the Seattle Seahawks needed him. Now he’s only the third linebacker in NFL history to earn Super Bowl MVP honors. Smith returned an interception of regularseason MVP Peyton Manning 69 yards for a touchdown in the first half, recovered a fumble in the second half, and was part of a dominating defensive performance by Seattle during its 43-8 victory over the Denver Broncos on Sunday night. “I woke up jumping, bouncing,” Smith said when presented with a truck amid the confettistrewn field after the game. “It turned out great for us tonight.” Sure did. And it was rather appropriate that a member of Seattle’s league-leading “D’’ would be the MVP of the Super Bowl, considering the way the Seahawks shut down Manning and Denver’s record-breaking offense, forcing four turnovers and holding the Broncos scoreless until the last play of the third quarter. Smith joined Ray Lewis of Baltimore in 2001, and Chuck Howley of Dallas in 1971 as the only linebackers to be picked as the top player in a Super Bowl. Only eight of 48 Super Bowls have ended with a defensive player getting the honor; the last example was Tampa Bay Buccaneers free safety Dexter Jackson in 2003. Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman and safety Earl Thomas were first-team All-Pro selections this season, and both finished among
