Early results are in for DeKalb City Council to hear how new housing, towing ordinances are working out By DAVID THOMAS dthomas@shawmedia.com

DeKALB – After getting their car impounded via the city’s administrative towing powers, there are some people who will not want to return to DeKalb. Good riddance, said Police Chief Gene Lowery. “Many of the people who have come in to pay a fee to un-impound their car have said they would not want to return to DeKalb,” Lowery

said. “And based on the conduct they were involved in, I think that’s a great message to hear.” City officials will update DeKalb aldermen at today’s meeting on what kind of effect some new ordinances have had on the police department and its ability to enforce the law. In 2012, the City Council created a new bureau to oversee DeKalb’s rental properties, enabled the police department to tow vehicles that might be connected to illegal activity, and started a resident officer program in

Opportunity House celebrates 50 years Organization integrates people with developmental disabilities into community On the Web

By STEPHANIE HICKMAN shickman@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – Spring Bellows cherishes her free time drawing and expressing herself. Bellows often visits with friends while drawing at the Opportunity House’s Developmental Training Center in Sycamore. Bellows enjoys bonding with other clients of the Opportunity House, who she said are all her friends. “I like them all the same,” she said. “I don’t believe in favorites.” Opportunity House, which helps people with developmental disabilities learn the skills they need to live and work in the community, offers programs for Bellows and many others. The organization is celebrating its 50th year. Last year, it served 283 clients with disabilities through its sheltered workshops, recreational programs, group housing, employment assistance and developmental training programs. Executive Director Bob Shipman said Opportunity House works to meet the needs of every client, no matter the disability. “You run the gamut from the very seriously impaired to the peo-

Founded in 1963, the organization was formed mostly by parents of children with disabilities who didn’t want to put them in institutions. They decided a better idea was to transition them into community life, Shipman said. “With a little bit of help, people with impairments or developmental disabilities can live and work in the community just like anyone else,” he said.

Opportunity House held its first workshop in the old South School building in Sycamore, and in 1967, it opened its first group home. Today, the organization provides housing for four to eight clients in each of its seven houses throughout the DeKalb and Sycamore areas. It recently purchased an eighth house in Sycamore and hopes to have it fully operational in June.

A place to call home

Danielle Archer works from

Tuesday to Thursday each week as one of six staff members caring for the residents of Maplewood, one of the organization’s 24-hour assistedliving group homes. She helps them with their laundry, cooking, cleaning and meal planning. She also goes to movies, plays bingo, does arts and crafts and bowls on the Nintendo Wii with residents. “We do a lot of activities to encourage group participation and make them feel like they’re in a home,” she said. The staff strives to ensure residents feel like they are part of a family. The eight female residents of this handicap-accessible house have a private room. Ken Safford, director of the house, said they are encouraged to personalize and make it their own.

Our state lawmakers can’t come up with pension reform, but they can find the time to make it a crime to buy or sell lion meat. They have no concrete plan to pay down a $10 billion pile of unpaid bills, but they can file bills to crack down on anonymous commenters on websites. Recent piecemeal attempts to cobble together pension reform aside, state lawmakers have a history of dealing with anything but pension reform. A last-minute effort to enact pension reform collapsed in the final hours of the 2012 spring session, but lawmakers took the time in May to pass a bill allowing trained miniature horses to be used as service animals for the disabled. One could make a convincing argument, given the state’s financial crisis, that any bill not dealing with pension reform is a distraction. But some bills, from parades crossing railroad tracks to allowing the state to issue “Choose Life” license plates, are more meaningless distractions than others. The following is a bipartisan list of some of the bills before state lawmakers – six from each house, divided equally by party – that some lawmakers are focusing on while the $96 billion in unfunded pension liability increases by $17 million a day. • Lion meat – House Bill 2991, filed by Rep. Lou Lang, D-Skokie, makes it a Class A misdemeanor to slaughter lions for meat, buy or sell lions for the purpose of slaughter, or sell the meat. The bill, now sponsored by Rep. Luis Arroyo, D-Chicago, is awaiting action in the House Agriculture and Conservation Committee. In Lang’s defense, he also has filed a pension bill – it would make the temporary 67 percent income-tax increase permanent to pay for the pensions. • Death penalty – Senate Bill 2275, sponsored by Sen. Kirk Dillard, R-Westmont, brings back the death penalty for certain circumstances. Lawmakers abolished the death penalty in the 2011 lame-duck session that gave us the 67 percent income-tax increase. The bill is awaiting a hearing in the Senate Subcommittee on Civil Rights.

Time spinoff highlights magazine risks By RYAN NAKASHIMA The Associated Press LOS ANGELES – From Sports Illustrated to People to its namesake magazine, Time Inc. was always an innovator. But now when the troubled magazine industry is facing its greatest challenge, the company Henry Luce founded is struggling to find its way in a digital world. Time Warner Inc.’s decision to shed its Time Inc. magazine unit last week underscores the challenges facing an industry that remains wedded to glossy paper even as the use of tablet computers, e-readers and smartphones explodes. Although the new devices might seem to present an array of opportunity for Time Inc.’s 95 magazine titles, many publishers have found the digital transition troublesome. Digital editions of magazines represented just 2.4 percent of all U.S. circulation in the last

An issue of Time Magazine sits on a newsstand Thursday in New York. Time Warner Inc. on Wednesday said that it will spin off the magazine unit behind Time, Sports Illustrated and People into a separate, publicly traded company by the end of the year. Time Warner Inc.’s decision to shed its Time Inc. magazine unit underscores the challenges facing an industry that remains wedded to glossy paper even as the use of tablet computers, e-readers and smartphones explodes. half of 2012, or about 7.9 million copies, according to the Alliance for Audited Media. Although that number more than doubled from a

year earlier, it’s hardly gangbusters growth, considering that the number of tablets in the U.S. also more than doubled last year to 64.8 million,

according to research firm IHS. The fact that so few tablet owners are buying magazines on their devices is a concern because both ad and circulation revenue from print editions have fallen more than 20 percent since their peak near the middle of the last decade. And, according to forecasts, there’s no recovery in sight. “We have to get much better at capturing those [digital] readers,” said Mary Berner, president of The Association of Magazine Media. Before publishers can accomplish that, they need to address problems, experts say. First, the range of free content on the Web has given some readers the impression that it’s not necessary to pay for the digital versions of magazine stories. Also, there’s no industry standard for pricing. Publishers aren’t in agreement over whether to include free access to digital copies as part of a print subscription.

8LOCAL BRIEF Fat cat in Texas slims down, adopted by vet

DALLAS – An obese stray cat found wandering six months ago near Dallas has slimmed down to 34 pounds and been adopted by the veterinarian overseeing his care. Dr. Brittney Barton said the orange tabby dubbed Skinny is doing well on a special diet to lose weight and increase metabolism. Barton says she became attached to the onetime 41-pound cat she was treating at an animal orphanage and last month he became part of her family. Skinny joins Barton’s husband, three children, a dog and another cat at her home. Barton says Skinny gets along great with the other animals, can jump up on a couch and runs to his food bag at feeding time.

Teen recovering after Hinckley wreck By DAVID THOMAS dthomas@shawmedia.com

HINCKLEY – A Waterman teenager is in good condition, according to staff at Rockford Memorial Hospital, after she was injured in a car accident last week. On Tuesday, sisters Katie and Courtney Wisser were traveling east on Route 30 past Pritchard Road in Hinckley when their car slid into the opposite lane. A box-

truck struck their car on the passenger side. Another car rear-ended the box truck after the collision. In a post on the website CaringBridge – a blog for people who are hospitalized – Steve and Jen Wisser said their daughters hit a patch of black ice and spun out. They were on their way to school at Aurora Central Catholic High School. Katie Wisser, 16, was transported to Kishwaukee

Community Hospital, where she was later released. Courtney Wisser, 14, was airlifted to Rockford Memorial Hospital. The Wissers wrote Friday that the accident caused her brain to swell and broke a number of her ribs and pelvis. “The most important piece right now is her brain: It needs time to heal and allow the remaining fluid to drain off,” the Wissers wrote. “She

is unconscious and will remain so for several days until the doctors are comfortable trying to wake her. She is responsive to stimuli though, which is a positive sign.” In a journal post dated Sunday, the Wissers wrote that Courtney Wisser was doing better, but detailed a number of issues she was having. She graduated from St. Mary School in DeKalb in June. The school held a rosary for her Friday.

U of I food, building workers to strike today

CHAMPAIGN – Food and building-service workers at the University of Illinois will walk off the job for three days starting today, after members of both bargaining units rejected the university’s contract offer. Service Employees International Union Local 73 spokesman Adam Rosen said Sunday that a majority of workers from both bargaining units rejected the university’s contract offer, but he did not disclose the vote totals. Outstanding issues include wages, provisions regarding retaliation against employees and the privatization of some work, Rosen said.

Gov. Pat Quinn delivers his State of the Budget address Wednesday to a joint session of the General Assembly in the House chambers at the Illinois State Capitol in Springfield.

Business decries Quinn loophole plan for taxes JOHN O’CONNOR The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD – Gov. Pat Quinn’s latest plan to pay off the state’s monstrous bill backlog is targeting income tax incentives that benefit Illinois corporations as a way to raise nearly half-a-billion dollars a year. But a governor’s loophole is often a business executive’s job-creator. Business leaders call the plan a tax increase on corporations in a state they say is already woefully inattentive to the needs of employers. As part of a $62.4 billion budget proposal laid out last week, Quinn proposed temporarily ending three tax breaks that would pump an estimated $454 million into the treasury. The money would go toward making a significant dent in $9 billion in overdue bills owed to providers of goods and services, the governor’s aides say. Quinn told a joint session of the General Assembly that he plans to reduce the $9 billion deficit by 20 percent before the June 2014

Humane Society

end of the upcoming budget year. Assistant budget director Abdon Pallasch said the tax loophole money would be a savings on top of the $2 billion Quinn called for in reducing the overdue bills. That money Quinn plans to wring out of spending throughout the budget and growth in tax revenue. “It is no time for corporate tax loopholes when the state of Illinois has bills to pay,” spokeswoman Brooke Anderson said. “Suspending these loopholes until the backlog is paid down will ensure vendors are paid faster, which is good for the economy and the budget.” But the economy and budget also get a boost when employers are hiring taxpayers and making money, said Todd Maisch, vice president for government affairs for the Illinois Chamber of Commerce. The elimination of tax loopholes “is just one more way in which Illinois is the leader of the pack of doing things that employers will shake their heads and say, ‘When are these guys going to figure it out, that you’ve got to help us

2250 Barber Greene Road DeKalb, IL 60115 (815) 75.TAILS www.tailshumanesociety.org

and not continually have an agenda that whacks us on the head?’ ” Maisch said. It’s a philosophy that Quinn has espoused previously. Just over a year ago, he signed legislation providing $100 million in incentives to prevent Sears and the corporation that runs the Chicago Mercantile Exchange and the Chicago Board of Trade from leaving the state. On Sunday, he told The Associated Press that those breaks were different because they saved thousands of jobs. But suspending tax breaks now is “the way to go,” he said. How temporary the proposed tax-break suspension would be also is a question, given the enormity of the state’s financial problem. Incentives can be a blessing or a curse, said Josh Goodman, a senior associate focusing on state tax incentives for the Pew Charitable Trusts. He said it’s crucial for states to conduct a “rigorous analysis” of their economicdevelopment tax breaks to see if they’re doing what they’re supposed to.

GENOA – The pride in Chuck Nunn’s voice was apparent when he spoke of his fleet-footed sprinters. “Sometimes they’re over in five seconds,” said Nunn, owner of Party Downs Mouse Racing in Wright City, Mo. “Other times they all just kind of sit there and chew on the wood until one finds the finish line.” They may not be champion thoroughbreds, but 54 mice made for exciting centers of attention for curious spectators Saturday in Genoa. The Genoa-Kingston Education Foundation hosted its third annual Mouse Race, a fundraiser featuring mousethemed games. The event, held at the Genoa Veterans Home, 311 Washington St. in Genoa, raised money for program funding in GenoaKingston School District 424. “Last year, we were able to raise over $4,400 from this event,” said Debbie Kuhn, board president of the foundation. “This year, we are looking to be closer to $5,500.” Participants placed bets on games such as mouse roulette and the mouse race. Cash prizes were awarded to those who predicted the winner in each of the six races. “I had a lot of faith in my mouse,” Bryan Evans of Genoa said. “Speed E. Gonzalez ran well, but not well enough to win.” The final race pitted winners against each other for a

Security risks, frayed relations dog U.S., Afghans By LOLITA C. BALDOR The Associated Press

AP photo

Cardinal Carlo Caffarra (second from right) and Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke (right) walk past two Swiss guards Friday as they leave after a meeting at the Vatican. The cardinals have been attending pre-conclave meetings to discuss the problems of the church and decide who among them is best suited to fix them as pope.

Before the conclave, horse-trading begins By VICTOR L. SIMPSON The Associated Press

VATICAN CITY – The Vatican insists that the cardinals participating in the upcoming conclave will vote their conscience, each influenced only by silent prayers and reflection. Everybody knows, however, that power plays, vested interests and Machiavellian maneuvering are all part of the game, and that the horsetrading is already under way. Can the fractious Italians rally behind a single candidate? Can the Americans live up to their surprise billing as a power broker? And will all 115 cardinals from around the world be able to reach a meeting of minds on whether the church needs a peoplefriendly pope or a hard-edged manager able to tame Vatican bureaucrats? This time there are no star cardinals and no big favorites, making the election wide open and allowing the possibility of a compromise candidate should there be deadlock. While deliberations have

been secret, there appear to be two big camps forming that have been at loggerheads in the run-up to the conclave. One, dominated by the powerful Vatican bureaucracy called the Curia, is believed to be seeking a pope who will let it continue calling the shots as usual. The speculation is that the Curia is pushing the candidacy of Brazilian Odilo Scherer, who has close ties to the Curia and would be expected to name an Italian insider as secretary of state – the Vatican No. 2 who runs dayto-day affairs at the Holy See. Another camp, apparently spearheaded by American cardinals, is said to be pushing for a reform-minded pope with the strength to shake up the Curia, tarnished by infighting and the “Vatileaks” scandal in which retired Pope Benedict XVI’s own butler leaked confidential documents to a journalist. These cardinals reportedly want Milan archbishop Angelo Scola as pope, because he is seen as having the clout to bring the Curia into line.

The other key question to resolve is whether the pope should be a “pastoral” one – somebody with the charisma and communication skills to attract new members to a dwindling flock – or a “managerial” one capable of a church overhaul in a time of sex-abuse scandals and bureaucratic disarray. It’s hard to find any single candidate who fits the bill on both counts. Italy has the largest group of cardinal electors with 28, and believes it has a historic right to supply the pope, as it did for centuries. Italians feel it’s time to have one of their own enthroned again after 35 years of “foreigners,” with the Polish John Paul II and the German Benedict. But Italians are divided by which Italian church groups they have been affiliated with, and which leaders they follow. A dispute that pitted the followers of the archbishops of Genoa and Florence is said to have cost them the papacy in 1978 after 455 years of Italian popes.

Studies tie stress to heart risks MARILYNN MARCHIONE The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO – Stress does bad things to the heart. New studies have found higher rates of cardiac problems in veterans with PTSD, New Orleans residents six years after Hurricane Katrina and Greeks struggling through that country’s financial turmoil. Disasters and prolonged stress can raise “fight or flight” hormones that affect blood pressure, blood sugar and other things in ways that make heart trouble more likely, doctors say. They also provoke anger and helplessness and spur heart-harming behaviors such as eating or drinking too much. “We’re starting to connect emotions with cardiovascular risk markers” and the new research adds evidence of a link, said Dr. Nieca Gold-

berg, a cardiologist at NYU Langone Medical Center and an American Heart Association spokeswoman. She had no role in the studies, which were discussed Sunday at an American College of Cardiology conference in San Francisco. The largest, involving 207,954 veterans in California and Nevada ages 46 to 74, compared those with PTSD, or post-traumatic stress disorder, to those without it. They were free of major heart disease and diabetes when researchers checked their Veterans Administration medical records from 2009 and 2010. Checked again about two years later, 35 percent of those with PTSD but only 19 percent of those without it had developed insulin resistance, which can lead to diabetes and hardening of the arteries. Doctors also saw higher

rates of metabolic syndrome – a collection of heart disease risk factors that include high body fat, cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar levels. About 53 percent of veterans with PTSD but only 37 percent of those without it had several of these symptoms. The numbers are estimates and are not as important as the trend – more heart risk with more stress, said one study leader, Dr. Ramin Ebrahimi, a cardiologist at the Greater Los Angeles VA Medical Center and a professor at UCLA. It shows that PTSD can cause physical symptoms, not just the mental ones commonly associated with it. That goes for others who suffer trauma such as being raped, robbed at gunpoint or in a serious accident, he said. Nearly 8 million Americans have PTSD, the National Institute of Mental Health estimates.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai speaks Sunday during a nationally televised speech about the state of Afghan women in Kabul, Afghanistan. over the past 12 years, we have shed too much blood over the past 12 years, we have done too much to help the Afghan security forces grow over the last 12 years to ever think that violence or instability would be to our advantage,” Dunford said. Dunford’s comments came, however, soon after U.S. officials canceled a news conference with Hagel and Karzai because of a security threat – just a day after a suicide bomber on a bicycle struck outside the Afghan Defense Ministry, killing nine Afghan civilians and wound-

ing 14 others. Hagel heard the explosion from the safe location where he was meeting with Afghan officials but was never in danger. The security problems compounded a series of flareups in recent weeks, including a dispute that has stalled the transfer of a U.S. prison to Afghan authority as well as Karzai’s order to expel U.S. special operations forces out of Wardak province, which lies just outside the capital, because of allegations that Afghans working with the commandos were involved in abusive behavior.

KABUL, Afghanistan – A series of security problems and fractured relations with Afghan leaders plagued Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel’s first trip here as Pentagon chief, including the Afghan president’s accusations that the U.S. and the Taliban are working in concert to show that violence in the country will worsen if most coalition troops leave. The top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, Gen. Joseph Dunford, quickly rejected the charges President Hamid Karzai made Sunday as “categorically false.” But the accusations were just the latest in a series of disputes that have frayed relations between the two nations as the U.S. works to wind down the war and turn the country’s security over to the Afghans. Speaking to reporters shortly after Karzai made the comments, Dunford said the Afghan leader has never expressed such views to him but said it was understandable that tensions would arise as the coalition balances the need to complete its mission with the Afghans’ move to exercise more sovereignty. “We have fought too hard

and the city’s landlords. “So far, Carl has had numerous conversations with landlords,” Leverton said. “Some have called to inquire about things they need to do, clarify questions they had about the ordinance. Carl said those conversations were very positive.” Under the new housing laws, Leoni is required to inform landlords of all police calls to their properties. Because of

these calls, some landlords have started the eviction process, Leverton said. He did not know how many people or cases are involved. A landlord also has moved out residents of one of his buildings after a recent fire-safety check by the DeKalb Fire Department. Leverton said it was a voluntary effort on the landlord’s part, partially motivated by the increased standards of the city’s new housing rules. “He knows he has some work to do in that building,” Leverton said.

Tim Sitowski spent his morning walking at the Kishwaukee YMCA as one of the many fitness opportunities offered through the Opportunity House’s developmental training program. His favorite activities are volleyball, basketball and playing games with the giant parachute in the center’s gymnasium. He prides himself on his athletic ability and participation in the Special Olympics. After lunch, he goes to the arts and crafts room to make shamrocks. Sitowski also contributes to the community’s Meals on Wheels program, which he said is his favorite. Sitowski and clients such as Bellows participate in activities in the school-like setting of the organization’s Developmental Training Center. Other clients work at the Opportunity House’s workshop at 202 Lucas St. in Sycamore, where they perform various tasks such as collating and shrink-wrapping folders for a

school supply company or assembling wire connectors for Ideal Industries. As members of the organization’s work service program, clients work flexible schedules learning work skills while earning wages. Chuck DeGraf, who has worked with Opportunity House for more than 30 years, supervises and assists the clients when necessary. The clients work at their own pace and earn wages based on their production numbers, DeGraf said.

As Bellows finished her drawing and headed to lunch, she said she looks forward to spending time with her friends. She said her friends shouldn’t be treated differently by anyone. “I believe everyone should be treated the same whether they have handicaps or not,” she said. This philosophy is what drives the Opportunity House’s mission to help clients succeed. “Just because our bodies aren’t perfect doesn’t mean we’re not perfect,” Bellows said. “Everyone is perfect.”

8STATE BRIEFS Uncle says he tried to save 7 from Ky. house fire

GRAY, Ky. – Gino Cima raced to a house as it was engulfed by flames in rural Kentucky, frantically trying to save his nephew, his nephew’s pregnant fiancee and five young children inside. But he was too late: He found his nephew’s body near a side door, lying in a way that suggested the man had been trying to rescue the sleeping children. Before coming upon his nephew’s body and that of the man’s fiancee, he said he screamed to firefighters: “There’s babies in that house!” Cima said Sunday that he arrived within minutes of hearing of the Saturday morning blaze. “When I opened the screen door, she was laying at the

door with her head to the door. And I pulled her out,” he said, speaking softly. “And about 2 feet from her laying the other way was [my nephew]. And I went in and got him and pulled him out. But they was done gone. There wasn’t nothing I could do.” The Knox County coroner and state police have not yet identified the victims, but family members said the five children killed ranged in age from 10 months to 3 years. Officials said the cause of the fire was under investigation. Arson investigators were at the scene Saturday, but officials said no foul play was suspected. State police said Sunday that no more information on the fire would be released until today.

6 teens killed, 2 hurt in northeast Ohio SUV crash

WARREN, Ohio – A speeding SUV taken without permission and carrying eight teenagers crashed into a guardrail Sunday morning and flipped over into a swampy pond in northeast Ohio, killing five boys and a woman, the state highway patrol said. The Honda Passport veered off the left side of a road and overturned just south of the city of Warren, about 60 miles east of Cleveland, Lt. Anne Ralston said. Investigators say it came to rest upside down in the swamp and sank with five of the victims trapped inside. A sixth, who was thrown from the SUV during the crash, was found under it when the vehicle was taken out of the water.

The two boys who survived escaped from the submerged vehicle and ran a quarter-mile to a home to call 911, the highway patrol said. State Highway Patrol Lt. Brian Holt said at an evening news conference that speed was a factor, although investigators were still trying to determine the speed at the time of the accident. “We will not be speculating on alcohol and/or drug usage pending toxicology reports,” Holt said. No one in the vehicle had permission to take it, but there were no theft reports, Holt said. The vehicle was licensed to a resident of Youngstown, about 20 miles away, he said.

Netsch lives on with influence

Some taxes up, and the sky’s still there

“Most of the media is so sold out to Obama that they’re missing the obvious,” Jim DeMint said on Fox News only last week. “The policies the president has in place, especially the tax increases that just got in, are going to hurt our economy, probably actually bring it down.” The former Republican senator from South Carolina was speaking as presidentelect of the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank. DeMint made this remarkably dire prediction seven days before the Dow Jones industrial average hit an all-time high. The employment numbers remain weak, but they, too, are improving and helping raise confidence levels, especially in the housing market. By the time you read this, stocks may have gone higher or lower. And a raft of additional good and bad economic news will have marched across the Bloomberg screens. But we can count on one constant: DeMint will be wronger than Captain Peter Wrongway Peachfuzz. His lightning bolts did provide some stereophonic balance to President Obama’s over-the-top warnings of grievous suffering should the sequester go into effect, a process that also began last week. Then, from the speaker on the right, came the not very relevant point that the tax hikes would take more money out of the economy than the forced spending reductions. “It’s a whopping $149 billion in taxes vs.

VIEWS Froma Harrop $85 billion in spending,” complained Heritage spokesman Robert Bluey. One wishes the bumper sticker could be widened to include these thoughts: For starters, the higher taxes plus the sequester equal significant deficit reduction, something conservatives purport to want. Also, combining new tax revenues with spending cuts would seem a balanced approach. One can’t repeat often enough that the stock market and economy took off after Bill Clinton’s 1993 tax hike on upper incomes. Ignoring that evidence, the right persists in replaying the old videotape that higher taxes inevitably lead to economic desolation. “Higher taxes will hinder economic growth,” Heritage said back in 1993. They “will shrink the tax base and reduce tax revenues.” They will “result in larger federal budget deficits.” Newt Gingrich, off by about 180 degrees, confidently predicted that the tax increase “will in fact kill the current recovery and put us back in a recession.” As we know, the opposite happened. Certainly, other things helped create Clinton-era budget surpluses. The dot-com boom raised stock-market wealth, and de-

fense spending went down. But the bottom line remains: By the end of Clinton’s eight years, there were 23 million new jobs and average weekly wages were up 21 percent. And here’s the kicker: The booming economy made the richest Americans even richer. They did better after paying Clinton’s higher taxes than they did in the George W. Bush era, when their tax rates were lower. As noted, many other factors add to or subtract from the economy’s health. Right now, the Federal Reserve’s low interest rates are helping boost investment. Housing seems to be perking up. And the American economy was bound to eventually recover from the depths. It’s obvious, though, that Obama’s tax increases, including a few fees on health care, are not blowing up the economy. It’s amazing that guys like DeMint can go on Fox year after year and make the same crashingly silly predictions – and that Heritage hasn’t stopped him. (The Washington Post last December predicted that DeMint, a tea party hero, would give Heritage a “sharper edge.” I don’t think “sharp” is quite the word.) As for the allegedly falling sky, all you have to do is look up. Some taxes have increased, and the sky’s still there. Not only that, it’s getting bluer.

Wireless competition that AT&T, Verizon need By SUSAN P. CRAWFORD Bloomberg View

Tantalizing reports that Americans might soon be getting free nationwide wireless Internet access, courtesy of the Federal Communications Commission, have turned out to be exaggerated. But wouldn’t we all welcome mobile connectivity at a reasonable price? The FCC should take steps to make that possible through competition in the wireless marketplace. Right now, Verizon Wireless and AT&T Inc. dominate the market for wireless data as a duopoly, together accounting for more than two-thirds of all U.S. subscribers and most of the wireless industry’s profits. The other three of the five biggest mobile-phone companies – Sprint Nextel Corp., T-Mobile USA Inc. and MetroPCS Communications Inc. – are small by comparison. And the big keep getting bigger: In the fourth quarter of 2012, while Verizon added a record 2.1 million subscribers to its base of 90.4 million wireless retail subscriptions and AT&T added more than three-quarters of a million subscribers to its 106 million retail connections, Sprint, T-Mobile and MetroPCS all lost subscribers. The two giants have the

market power to impose very low monthly usage caps, beyond which consumers are charged exorbitant overage fees, and “shared use” plans that allow the companies to extract additional revenue per household from families sharing buckets of data. More importantly, Verizon Wireless and AT&T hold most of the licenses the FCC has issued for low-band wireless spectrum. This spectrum, which travels through walls and over great distances, gives the company a “tremendous advantage” over high-band licensees such as TMobile, Verizon’s chief technology officer, Tony Melone, told analysts in 2010. A single tower transmitting over low-band spectrum can cover three to 3½ times the geographic area of a high-band transmitter. This means that Verizon Wireless can run its nationwide network using far fewer towers than T-Mobile needs to provide similar coverage. These lowband spectrum holdings create a barrier to entry that other carriers have trouble overcoming. So people got excited when the Washington Post reported last month that the FCC was planning to make more Wi-Fi spectrum available for use by any home or business without permission. The Wi-Fi signals we currently use to connect to

the Internet are the last 50 feet of a wired connection; Wi-Fi allows us to share home and business wires without signing up for the wireless carriers’ data plans. Verizon and AT&T themselves already rely extensively on Wi- Fi to avoid having to increase the capacity of their own networks. The big difference between current Wi-Fi and the proposed additional Wi-Fi is that the new uses would be in low-band spectrum. While signals over high-frequency spectrum carry lots of information, they degrade very quickly over distance – which is why your current Wi-Fi connection at work fades as soon as you walk away from your office. More Wi-Fi would make one element of a wireless network – the frequencies – “free.” But a wireless network still can’t exist without being close to a wired Internet connection, and someone has to pay for that. Still, new spectrum for Wi-Fi is a good idea, because it would have greater range than current Wi-Fi and would foster innovation. But it would have far less range than Verizon Wireless and AT&T provide, and thus wouldn’t supplant the need for most people to have a mobile data plan. If we want more competition for Verizon Wireless and AT&T,

Wi-Fi alone won’t do it. We must ensure that low-band licensed (paid-for) spectrum is available to challengers who won’t be limited by the range constraints of Wi-Fi. The FCC has an opportunity to do that: In 2014, it plans to have TV broadcasters give up some of their low-band licensed spectrum for resale to wireless data carriers. This so-called incentive auction, which allows the broadcasters to share in the proceeds, is our last best chance to weaken the grip of the wireless duopoly. Broadcasters need to be urged to cooperate by contributing all the spectrum they don’t need. And the FCC needs to get the auction rules right so Verizon Wireless and AT&T aren’t allowed to snatch it all up for themselves. Otherwise, we will see no change. All American businesses want competition and innovation in the wireless space that will drive lower prices, wider choices of inexpensive devices and greater investments in capacity. The FCC needs to make sure they get it.

Dawn Clark Netsch, a liberal Democrat from Chicago, former state comptroller and a longtime state senator, was a generation ahead of her time. Netsch, who died Tuesday at age 86, won the Democratic nomination for governor in 1994, the first woman to do so for a major party in Illinois. She campaigned hard against incumbent Republican Gov. Jim Edgar of Charleston. She strongly supported an increase in the state income tax from 3 percent to 4.5 percent. Such an increase, she said, would help straighten out Illinois’ finances and give more money to education. Building on her reputation as a “straight shooter,” Netsch filmed a TV commercial where she shot pool while discussing what she would do as governor. When the Nov. 8, 1994, election rolled around, however, Netsch was soundly defeated by Edgar. She received only 34 percent of the vote. Things looked rosy for the GOP back then. Republicans captured the U.S. House for the first time in 40 years, harnessing voter backlash against efforts by President Bill Clinton to approve a national health care bill. Republicans also captured the Illinois House of Representatives. Steve Brown, House Speaker Michael Madigan’s spokesman, said at the time: “We’re obviously surprised by the overall outcome. They [Republicans] are all out of excuses now. They’ll have to produce.” Having Netsch lead the Democratic ticket did not help Democrats that year, but her party, and her ideas, eventually prevailed. National health care was approved in 2010. A state income tax increase was approved in 2011. Netsch, a supporter of the gay and lesbian community, witnessed the granting of expanded rights, including civil unions, and a current movement to approve gay marriage. And state government is dominated by Democrats who think a lot like Netsch did. Gov. Pat Quinn, Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon, Secretary of State Jesse White and Attorney General Lisa Madigan all praised Netsch’s career and leadership. Netsch has affected Illinoisans perhaps more than they know. She helped write the 1970 Illinois Constitution, under which the state still is governed. She pushed hard for equal rights for women and sponsored the Equal Rights Amendment, which failed to win ratification. Netsch taught law, served on ethics commissions, supported political candidates and served as a mentor and role model. Netsch was known for her directness, so she would not mind us pointing out that her party has controlled the Illinois governor’s mansion, House and Senate for 10 years now. Paraphrasing the 1994 words of Speaker Madigan’s spokesman, Democrats are all out of excuses now. They’ll have to produce. Perhaps now, in tribute to Netsch, they will.

Cards manager Matheny to have back surgery JUPITER, Fla. – Cardinals manager Mike Matheny (Above left) planned to leave the team after Sunday's spring training game and return to St. Louis for surgery to repair a ruptured disk in his lower back. Matheny expects to be back at spring training for Thursday's game against Atlanta in Jupiter. "There is still a fragment that is stuck in a spot where it's getting to the nerve and affecting what is going on back there," Matheny said before Sunday's game against the New York Mets. The 42-year-old Matheny, who replaced Tony La Russa as manager after the 2011 season, said early in spring training that the injury probably traces back to his days as a big league catcher from 1994-2006. "They seem pretty confident this will take care of it," he said of the surgeons. The ruptured disk sends pain into his right leg, which became severe Feb. 28 and caused him to skip the next day's game against Houston at Kissimmee. An epidural injection March 4 failed to relieve the pain. "We were hoping it would kind of settle down and go away, but it really hasn't," Matheny said. The pain is at its worst when Matheny stands after sitting for any length. He decided to have the surgery now, before plane trips during the regular season. "I hate that it's been as big a deal as it's been," he said. "I'm anxious to get it over." Bench coach Mike Aldrete will manage the team in Matheny's absence. – Wire report

DeKALB – In Huntley Middle School’s wrestling room, there’s a list of all the school’s state qualifiers. Coach Patrick Kiley said his wrestlers stare at it all the time. Huntley seventh-grader Justin Hernandez already had his name up on the wall before

this weekend’s IESA State Meet at the NIU Convocation Center, having finished in sixth place last season. Hernandez will be seeing his name up on the board once again, as he took fourth place at this year’s meet, which concluded Saturday. Hernandez had a fall and two major decisions on his way to the semifinals, where he was pinned by Matt Kronsbein of Homer

Glen Homer. Hernandez lost by fall against Deerfield’s Reece Heller in the third-place match. “It feels pretty good to place two times,” Hernandez said. Next season, Hernandez hopes to become a three-time state qualifier, and stand on the top spot of the medal stand. “I think I should have done better this year. I think I should have placed top-two,” he said. “Next year, I think I should win it.” Homer Glen Homer won the Rob Winner – rwinner@shawmedia.com meet with a score of 202.

DeKALB – Tonight, Northern Illinois returns to the scene of its lowest point of the season. On Jan. 26, Eastern Michigan defeated NIU, 42-25, in Ypsilanti, Mich. The Huskies, who finished the regular season at 5-24 and 3-13

in the Mid-American Conference, set multiple NCAA records, including the fewest points scored in a half (4) in the shot clock era. The Huskies will be back at the Eastern Michigan Convocation Center, where they will take on the Eagles in the first round of the MAC Tournament. Tip-off between the 10th-seeded

Huskies and seventh-seeded Eastern Michigan will be at 6 p.m. Last week, before NIU’s firstround opponent was determined, freshman point guard Travon Baker said the Huskies would be ready for another possible game in Ypsilanti.

See MAC TOURNEY, page B3

What kind of director would serve Huskies athletics best? Opinions? Brother, do I have opinions: Topic No. 1: Who should be the next Northern Illinois athletics director? The obvious answer: A true Huskie, somebody who will stay the course longer than 4-5 years. More often than not, NIU searches become enamored with these high-profile, fast-track types who use the university as a resume-builder and stepping stone to the next level.  Maybe the revolving door in Huskies intercollegiate athletics would slow down with a local, home-grown AD who relates better with the community. Nine years ago when I first

KORCEK’S CORNER Mike Korcek perused Jim Phillips’ resume, I “knew” he was too good to stay here long. Same thing, after Northern Illinois stunned college football with the unprecedented Orange Bowl berth in December, the second thought that popped into my head was that Jeff Compher was gone, too. Change is constant, even moreso in college sports. And in some aspects, America is still the land of opportunity, so I understand moving up the NCAA ladder.

If I remember correctly, five years ago UCLA senior associate AD Ross Bjork was the other finalist when Compher got the NIU job. Within two years, Bjork became the AD at Western Kentucky and then bolted to Ole Miss as AD in 2012. Kudos to the search committee for finding “hot” candidates. But don’t we want the “right” candidate? Look, I comprehend that most people usually don’t turn down mega six-figure salaries from the Big Ten, SEC, or Conference USA (and the Big East) to stay in bucolic DeKalb County. Most people. As Phillips often reminded his staff, “the NIU lapel pin

never comes off.” Why not make it easier and hire a Northern Illinois grad? Say what you want about Hall of Famers and past ADs Bob Brigham and Cary Groth, both loved their alma mater dearly. Did they make mistakes? Who doesn’t?   How many times have you heard the statement “they need to run Huskie athletics like a business?” I agree, but throw a little personality and Cardinal and Black passion into the mix.  This is a major institution with a nationally recognized College of Business, isn’t it? With thousands of prominent business alums – many who were highly successful NIU student-athletes, even Aca-

demic All-Americas or national champions – why not consider those types of credentials?  To paraphrase JFK, ask not what your alma mater can do for you – ask what you can do for the Huskies. Have we ever considered this? Isn’t it time to stop hiring these young associate ADs from BCS programs, buying a red and black tie for the introductory press conference, and teaching them how to spell H-u-s-k-i-e the NIU way? Names, I suppose you want names. What do you think this is? The Korcek Executive Search firm? Pony up $50,000, folks.

8SPORTS SHORTS Woods wins another World Championship

DORAL, Fla. – Tiger Woods is hitting his stride on his march to the Masters. Woods had full control of his game Sunday and never let anyone get closer than three shots until he had locked up his 17th World Golf Championship title. With a bogey that didn’t matter on the final hole, he closed with a 1-under Par 71 to win the Cadillac Championship. One year ago at Doral, Woods left after the 11th hole with tightness in his left Achilles tendon. He since has won five times in his last 22 tournaments worldwide, and can return to No. 1 in the world with a win in two weeks at Bay Hill. Woods won by two over Steve Stricker, who gave Woods a putting tip on the eve of the tournament.

Michigan State downs Northwestern

EAST LANSING, Mich. – Keith Appling scored 16 points and Gary Harris added 12 to lift Michigan State over Northwestern. The Spartans (24-7, 13-5) were eliminated from Big Ten title contention early in their game when Indiana beat Michigan, and Michigan State struggled to put away the undermanned Wildcats. Northwestern (13-18, 4-14) rallied from a 13-point first-half deficit, tying the game at 51 before the Spartans recovered. Kale Abrahamson scored 16 points for Northwestern, which has lost eight straight. Michigan State senior Derrick Nix scored 10 points in his final home game. The Spartans shot 66 percent from the field and 6 of 10 from 3-point range.

Ohio State beats Illinois

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Deshaun Thomas, playing perhaps his final home game for Ohio State, scored 19 points in a victory over Illinois. Ohio State (23-7, 13-5) is the No. 2 seed for next week’s Big Ten tournament. Brandon Paul scored 21 points for Illinois (21-11, 8-10), which will be the No. 8 seed in Chicago. Aaron Craft added 14 points and six assists while creating his usual havoc on defense for the Buckeyes. Lenzelle Smith Jr. had 10 points. The Buckeyes have won five in a row, including wins over No. 2 Indiana and then-No. 4 Michigan State. Thomas, the Big Ten’s leading scorer at 19.8 points a game, is expected to give up his senior season to enter the NBA draft. – Wire reports

Edmonton Oilers center Sam Gagne scores his second goal on Blackawks goalie Ray Emery with a backhand shot Sunday in Chicago.

oilers 6, blackhawks 5

Hawks know not to fret CHICAGO – After watching the Edmonton Oilers score four goals in 10-minute span Sunday, a Blackhawks fan screamed a question from the upper deck late in the first period. “How much time is left in this terrible period?!?” the fan said. His timing was perfect. “One minute remaining in the period,” public-address announcer Gene Honda responded. “One minute.” Not a minute too soon, Hawks players retreated to their locker room facing a 4-0 deficit. When they returned to the ice, they looked like their familiar selves. Long story short: The Hawks lost, 6-5, to the Edmonton Oilers. They started cardtable flat, made a breathtaking comeback bid, but ultimately ran out of time. Now, the Hawks have lost two consecutive games. They are 21-2-3 on the season. All of those ESPN and Sports Illustrated and Wall Street Journal reporters who filled the press box in recent games have packed their laptop bags and headed elsewhere. Once the streak – I mean The Streak – ended Friday in Colorado,

VIEWS Tom Musick the Hawks lost some national sizzle. Too bad. All of those news outlets are missing out on a good development in the story. It’s official. The Hawks are human. I was starting to wonder. Humans have bad days, and the Hawks finally have had a couple. That’s fine. Even a shortened regular season is a long season, and disappointing losses are inevitable. Give Hawks players credit for having the right approach to their recent cold spell. Just because you have a hiccup doesn’t mean you need CPR. Take this exchange between Patrick Kane and a reporter after the game. “You haven’t faced adversity as far as losing this season,” a serious-looking reporter said. “How do you expect this team to respond?” Kane tried, and failed, to stifle a chuckle. “You know what, it’s two games, so we can’t get too ahead of ourselves here,” Kane said. “But, we’ve had a great season to date. And we feel

we have a really good team in here that can do some special things.” Good for Kane for chuckling. Outside of the locker room, some might question the Hawks’ recent defensive breakdowns. Corey Crawford was yanked from Friday’s start after allowing five goals on 19 shots, and Ray Emery was yanked from Sunday’s start after giving up three goals on eight shots. But the Hawks’ goaltenders are not entirely to blame for the recent binge in goals allowed, just as they weren’t the sole reason for the team’s defensive success during The Streak. And the Hawks’ offense is as potent as ever, as proved by their five goals in the final two periods against Edmonton. Even if I wanted to press the panic button, I’m not sure that I would be able to find it. Maybe it’s next to where the Zambonis are parked? Maybe it’s on top of the scoreboard? What if it’s frozen underneath the faceoff circle at center ice, hidden in plain sight? Regardless, the Hawks will be fine. Jonathan Toews agreed. By the way, this is the same guy who is nicknamed “Captain Serious.” “We didn’t get a point

or we didn’t get two points tonight, but considering where we put ourselves [after the first period], we didn’t give up,” Toews said with a matter-of-fact tone. “We tried to come back, and we put them on their heels in the second half of the game. … “We’ll learn from this when we get back at it later on this week.” I believe him. It’s rare for Hawks players to have to sit around after a game and discuss a loss. It’s not something they want to become a habit. “It was weird after the first one,” Kane said. “Now, we’ve got to be careful not to get too down on ourselves – especially after the start we had. “We did something really special, and no one can ever take that away from you. We’re very happy with the start to the season. We’ve just kind of got to regroup here and get back to that mentality of not wanting to lose.” They already have that mentality. They’ll be fine.

WHITE SOX ROUNDUP

Sox split squads split games with Mariners, Reds The ASSOCIATED PRESS PEORIA, Ariz. – Dayan Viciedo went 3 for 3 with a double and two runs scored, and a White Sox split squad beat the Seattle Mariners, 11-7, on Sunday. Viciedo was in the middle of a five-run first inning that featured nonroster invitee Stefan Gartrell’s grand slam off Mariners starter Andrew Carraway. Seattle’s Michael Morse hit his third home run of the spring, a solo shot off Sox starter Dylan Axelrod. That was the only hit and run allowed by the right-hander. Axelrod, who pitched in 14 games and started seven last season, worked three innings for the win. He has allowed one earned run and three hits in eight innings over three outings this spring. Axelrod has walked none and struck out seven. Mariners outfielders Jason Bay and Carlos Peguero both tripled off of Scott Snodgress in the fourth. The Sox’s Brent Morel was 2 for 4 with a home run, and Gordon Beckham added a solo shot. Reds 7, White Sox (ss) 3: At Glendale, Ariz., Sox starter Gavin Floyd allowed four runs and struck out five in 3 1/3 innings for a Sox split squad in a loss to Cincinnati. “I’m trying to make pitches and act like it’s a middle-of-the-season game,” Floyd said. “I threw all my pitches for strikes, but they just got some good hits off me. I still got some good work in. It is a process of little things here and there. As soon as you can try to emulate a real game, the more prepared you are for the season.” Sox DH Paul Konerko went 0 for 3 after recording hits in eight of his nine previous plate appearances. Sox third baseman Jeff Keppinger was scratched from the lineup because of shoulder soreness, but the ailment is not considered serious. He will not play the field again until Wednesday, but he may be a designated hitter before then. Sox shortstop Alexi Ramirez was hit by a pitch from Reds starter Johnny Cueto, but he remained in the game and was not seriously injured. Cueto was erratic in his second spring start. He walked three and hit another, but completed four innings and gave up just two runs. The Reds’ Shin-Soo Choo got four hits, stole two bases and scored twice, With Team Canada eliminated from the World Baseball Classic, first baseman Joey Votto is expected to return to the Reds’ camp Tuesday. Cincinnati has an off day today.

Soriano, Navarro get key hits, Cubs beat the Padres The ASSOCIATED PRESS

MESA, Ariz. – David DeJesus took the jeers in stride, placed the winning bunt just so and posed with the championship belt a few minutes later. The Cubs’ center fielder defended his title in the team’s annual 64-man bunt tournament before Sunday’s 9-3 win over the San Diego Padres. This is the second year that manager Dale Sveum has run the event. It was a way to work on the craft in a fun manner, setting point values based on where bunted balls came to rest. And it’s become a big deal in camp, with almost the whole organization in attendance on one of the backfields for the finals. DeJesus beat Nate Hale, who played collegiately and works in the club’s video department for the prize money, a reported $3,400. It was clear that most around the field were rooting for Hale, but DeJesus came through on his last bunt in five rounds of eight attempts. “It’s always easy to [root for the underdog],” DeJesus said. “The guy with the belt, people be hatin’. But it’s all right.” The good time was a precursor for what came later when the Cubs’ hitters broke loose. Pitcher Travis Wood and DeJesus singled to start the sixth inning before a two-out, two-run double by Alfonso Soriano and a two-run hom-

er by Dioner Navarro against Tim Stauffer. The Cubs began the day last in the NL in team average (.247) and onbase average (.307) although regulars Anthony Rizzo (World Baseball Classic) and Starlin Castro (injured hamstring) have been out of the lineup for some time. “We’re not going to know anything until we get all eight (regulars) out there,” Sveum said. “We are going to have to be creative in the lineups. It’s not going to be a prolific offense, but it will keep the line moving better than it did last year.” Christian Villanueva added a tworun homer for the Cubs. He has three hits this spring and all of them are home runs. Padres starter Jason Marquis threw four scoreless innings and allowed two hits. Reliever Andrew Cashner made his first appearance and had a clean seventh inning after coming back from thumb surgery stemming from a hunting accident in December. “We didn’t see any sign of thumb [trouble] which he has shown through all of his workouts,” Padres manager Bud Black said. “It hasn’t been bothering him at all. It was encouraging.” Mark Kotsay hit a two-run double in the third inning off Cubs starter Scott Feldman.

lakers 90, bulls 81

Howard leads Lakers over Bulls Next

By JOE HAAKENSON The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES – Dwight Howard scored 16 points and grabbed 21 rebounds, Kobe Bryant chipped in with 19 points, nine assists and seven rebounds, and the Los Angeles Lakers beat the Bulls 90-81 Sunday. The Lakers improved to 3331, the first time this season they have been two games over .500. They also moved one-half game ahead of the Utah Jazz and into sole possession of the No. 8 and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Lakers led almost throughout, only briefly falling behind by two points in the second quarter, and led by as many as 18 in the third period. Steve Nash had 16 points for the Lakers. Nate Robinson led the Bulls with 19 points, and Joakim Noah had 18 points and 17 rebounds. Bryant was scoreless in the first quarter, but the Lakers maintained a lead behind Howard’s play in the paint. He made 8 of 14 shots from the floor, but was 0 for 5 from the free throw line. His 21 rebounds marked the fourth time this season he’s grabbed at least 20. After a sluggish first half

at Sacramento, 9 p.m. Wed., AM-1000 by both teams, the Lakers came out hot to start the third quarter. Led by 10 points from Nash, Los Angeles went on a 21-7 run to begin the quarter, capped by a 3-pointer by Jodie Meeks that gave the Lakers a 65-47 lead. But the Bulls responded with an 8-0 spurt to narrow their deficit to 65-55. The Lakers finished the third quarter with a 73-61 lead when Earl Clark took a pass from Bryant and made a jumper at the buzzer. Bryant took only three shots in the first quarter, going scoreless in the opening 12 minutes. Metta World Peace was cold as well, missing four open 3-pointers, but the Lakers held an early lead thanks to Howard’s efforts down low. Though he missed all three free throws he took in the quarter, Howard was 3 of 3 from the field for six points and grabbed seven rebounds. The Lakers never trailed in the opening period, leading by as many as six before the Bulls cut the margin to 20-16 heading into the second quarter. Bryant finally got into the

on a layup by Robinson, Howard picking up his third foul on the play. Howard remained in the game but the Bulls briefly pulled ahead, going up 36-34

on a basket by Carlos Boozer. The Lakers regained the lead shortly thereafter on a 3-pointer by Meeks, and led 44-40 at the half, but not without a little drama. After World

Peace was called for a foul on an illegal screen, denying Bryant a chance to take the final shot of the half, Bryant and World Peace barked at each other as they made their way upcourt. Nash got between the two to calm them down. Howard led the Lakers with eight points and 11 rebounds, while Bryant finished the half with six points on 3 of 9 shooting. Robinson led the Bulls with 13 points. Notes: Lakers forward Pau Gasol (foot injury; torn plantar fascia) remains on track to return before the end of the regular season. “Gasol is coming on,” Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni said. “It’s five weeks on Tuesday, and they said six to eight weeks, so hopefully that’s the case. If there are no setbacks, he should be back.” ... Bulls guard Derrick Rose, recovering from surgery on his left knee in May, is close to returning. But coach Tom Thibodeau said he can’t look ahead to how the team will adjust with Rose, the 2011 NBA MVP, back on the floor. “We’ll cross that bridge when we get there,” Thibodeau said. “For us right now, the guys that are playing, they have to concentrate on their improvement and our next opponent. Derrick has to concentrate on his rehab.”

A win could be nice building block for young Huskies team • MAC TOURNEY

Continued from page B1 “There’s going to be a lot of motivation regardless,” Baker said. “But that might add a little bit to it.” NIU won’t be favored to win tonight, but the Huskies weren’t expected to get a victory when they were in the same position a year ago, before beating the Eagles, 55-52, in Ypsilanti to advance to the MAC Tournament’s second round in Cleveland. “Last year we were in a similar situation with us being toward the bottom of the conference,” junior guard Antone Christian said. “The good thing about college basketball, when it’s tournament time, anybody can be beat.” Last season, NIU took a big step with the win, which was their first MAC Tournament victory since 2003. This year’s team features a number of freshmen getting consistent playing time. Considering the makeup of the group, getting to Cleveland for the second year in a row would be a nice building block with how much the Huskies have struggled this year.

With a victory, NIU would play the winner of 11th-seeded Miami (Ohio) and sixth-seeded Bowling Green at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Quicken Loans Arena. “If we can get by that first play-in game like we did last year, I think our guys would benefit a lot,” NIU head coach Mark Montgomery said. With six freshmen on the roster, there’s been a lot of growing pains for NIU. Tonight is a new season, and Mongomery said his team has a shot if they play loose, confident and share the ball. The Huskies could be without sophomore wing Abdel Nader, who has been away from the team while going through personal and family issues. He didn’t play in the team’s 53-51 loss Saturday at Ball State, and Montgomery said his availability for the tournament hasn’t been determined. Having so many freshmen has allowed the young group to gain experience, but they’ve also gone through typical freshmen struggles. “I thought they all made strides,” Montgomery said. “At the same time they all hit the wall at times, which is tough.”

We’re looking for bright, proven, engaging Northern Illinois leaders – people such as Dennis Barsema, Mike Burke, Tim Dillon, Josh Haldi, Patrick Stephen, T. J. Lux come to mind. Athletic entrepreneurs. Hire a Huskie. Set the groundwork for NIU’s next generation. AD experience? Overrated. In the old days, retired football coaches automatically became ADs. Now, there’s too many lawyer ADs. This is CEO time.  Find a 24/7 workaholic personality who surrounds himself – or herself – with a top-notch support staff in compliance, development, marketing, facilities management, business operations, academic counseling, media relations, etc. People who know and understand our school and culture should go to the head of the class. Will John Peter’s successor understand the critical nature of this hire? Facility-wise, NIU athletics has taken some bold (and overdue) steps in the past decade. Except for the badly needed Huskie Stadium press box and suite(s) renovation, the major capital projects are finished or near completion. For every step forward (can you say “Orange Bowl”), the Huskies hierarchy sometimes takes two backward (2013 home football schedule, too many Soldier Field games, the state of both basketball programs, and indifferent campus, community, and alumni support). More than ever, Northern Illinois needs the right AD to get all on the same page. Topic No. 2: Is East Carolina a lateral move for Jeff Compher?

OK, C-USA might be the MidAmerican Conference on steroids and a larger travel budget. Who knows what the future holds for the Big East? ECU’s athletic facilities are superior, probably because its administration made the commitment sooner.  Since Northern Illinois football played at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium in 1990, the seating capacity was increased 35,000 to 50,000. Similar to NIU, the modern-era Pirates searched for the right league affiliation, spending two tenures as an independent and a member of the Southern Conference before joining C-USA in 1997. Who’s better at football?  One of ECU’s finest teams would have to be the 1991 eleven that finished 11-1, beat North Carolina State in the Peach Bowl, wound up No. 9 in both major polls, and featured Heisman Trophy candidate and All-American Jeff Blake at quarterback.  Does that ring any bells, Huskies fans? Because Northern Illinois almost beat East Carolina and Blake the year before. ECU did survive, 24-20, in maybe the greatest Huskies comeback that almost happened or that few recall. Remember: road game, no TV, no ESPN highlights.  Coach Jerry Pettibone rallied the visitors from 10-0 and 17-7 deficits to take the lead in the fourth quarter, 20-17, on a five-yard QB keeper by Stacey Robinson. For some reason, the game officials ruled that Honorable Mention All-America kicker John Ivanic’s PAT was no good (there’s still a debate about that) which forced the Huskies into a touchdown mode once the Pirates went back ahead, 24-20. From around midfield (the details escape me) and with time running out, Robinson – considered one of the all-time best

option QBs in NCAA history – completed only his 60th pass of the year to wide receiver Larry Wynn, who lateralled the ball to fellow WR Kurt Cassidy who headed to the right corner and the end zone. As the ECU defenders converged on Cassidy, Robinson – like a trailer in basketball – followed the hook-and-ladder play toward the end zone.   Cassidy fought valiantly to get the ball to the two-yard line as the clock went to 0:00.  The next day, coach Pettibone showed me the press box game film angle of the same play.  With another few seconds, Cassidy could’ve pitched the ball back to a wide-open Robinson for the game-winning touchdown. NIU finished 6-5 that fall and East Carolina 5-6. Who’s better? Toss-up in my mind. Topic No. 3: Only five Northern Illinois home football dates in 2013? Is the issue quantity or quality? Guess after a 12-2 Orange Bowl season, a little of both.  No one expects Alabama or Notre Dame to visit Huskie Stadium. Since 1966 (when full home schedules began), NIU has hosted five home games 24 times, six home dates 17 times, four home games five times (1976, 1983 and the MAC title year, believe it or not, 1985, 1986, 1993), and seven games once (2003).   Sure Vanderbilt, Oklahoma State, Kansas State, Louisville, Cincinnati, Wake Forest, etc., would look great again on the home schedule. Heck, some of those old Big West games (UNLV, Nevada, Utah State, Southwestern Louisiana, or Louisiana Tech) shine by comparison. Is this a Top 25 team’s schedule? No.   Another task for the new AD. Start the list.

Clinton Rosette coach hopes experience will pay off in future for his young team • WRESTLING

Huntley had six state qualifiers, and eighth-grader Brian Macarus was the school’s other wrestler to place, taking fifth at 145 pounds in his first trip to state. Macarus was pinned by Cahokia Wirth’s Deandre Brown in the semifinals, but was able to defeat Island Lake Matthews’ Tyler Stankiewicz, 6-5 in the fifthplace match after losing his semifinal wrestleback. “A true sign of a good wrestler is one that can actually wrestle back and win,” Kiley said. “At that point,

Everybody wants to be a champ. After that one, where do you want to go?” Macarus is another wrestler who’s name will be on the board, after ending the year at 34-6. “It’s going to be nice,” he

said. Clinton Rosette had seven state qualifiers, but the school which won the past two IESA state titles wasn’t able to place a wrestler. Clinton Rosette lost a number of wrestlers from last year’s team, including 14 starters. This season’s group had 22 seventh-graders and 16 sixthgraders. This year’s meet was tough for coach Dan Weller’s team, but hopes the experience will pay off in the future. “We’re just young right now,” Weller said. “But they’re hungry, they’ll be back next year.”

Older friends sharing time share kisses too

Dear Abby: I am a semi-retired widow in my 60s. A few months ago I started spending time with a man I work with. We would see each other once or twice a month, strictly as friends. Our “dates” ended with a platonic hug. About a month ago, a hug turned into an embrace. A week later, the embrace became a passionate kiss. Since then, whenever we get together – now once or twice a week – we spend a good portion of our time together “making out.” We love the way each other kisses. The problem is, we’re still just friends. There is no desire on the part of either of us to take the relationship up a notch. What do we do?

PET scans allow doctors clearer view of organs

Dear Dr. K: I’m in treatment for colorectal cancer. My doctor has scheduled a PET scan to see how well my treatment is working. What will happen during this test? Dear Reader: A positron emission tomography, or PET, scan is an imaging technique. Unlike most imaging techniques, a PET scan primarily shows how different parts of the inside of the body are working, rather than just how they are shaped. As in your case, PET scans are often used to determine how well cancer treatment is working. They can also be used to detect cancerous tumors and to determine how much cancer has spread. In addition, doctors use PET

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff scans to evaluate neurological illnesses, especially epilepsy and dementia. In patients with coronary artery disease, PET scans may be used to evaluate how well the heart is functioning. A PET scan involves radioactivity. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or if there is a possibility that you might be pregnant. A PET scan usually is done as an outpatient test in a major medical center. The PET scanner is a ring-shaped device with an attached table.

You will lie on the scanning table. During the PET scan, either you will inhale a substance called a tracer, or it will be injected into one of your veins, usually in your arm. Once the tracer is given, the PET scan must be done immediately because the tracer decays rather quickly. The tracer will travel through your bloodstream to the organ being targeted for imaging. Once there, the tracer will produce radioactive particles that interact with other particles in your body to produce gamma rays (similar to X-rays). The PET scanner will detect these gamma rays. A computer analyzes the scans to form an image.

You must lie very still during the PET scan. The scanning table will slide slowly through the opening in the scanner ring, so you won’t need to move. The entire scan should take 30 minutes to two hours. Afterward, you can go home and resume your normal activities. The radioactive tracers used in PET scans are considered to be safe. They are short-lived and are quickly cleared from the body. Before the discovery of Xrays about a century ago, we had no way of looking inside the body without cutting the skin. X-rays were a revolutionary advance, honored with the Nobel Prize. They have helped greatly to diag-

nose a variety of diseases, but the pictures they produce are fuzzy. For example, you can barely see anything in the brain – like a brain tumor. However, until about 50 years ago, X-rays were all we had. Since then, the discovery of computerized tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), functional MRI scans and PET scans allow really clear pictures of our insides. The invention of flexible tubes called endoscopes has also made it possible to see inside the body. All of these technologies have helped doctors solve and fix problems inside the body.

Alcohol has brought more pain than healing Dr. Wallace: I’m outraged that you are against drinking alcohol until a person reaches the “magic” age of 21, and you even included those in the military. I happen to be a Desert Storm veteran. If an 18-year-old G.I. can vote, be charged as an adult for a crime and die for his country, he should be able to have a cold beer when he’s thirsty.

TODAY – There are strong indications that you could establish three important relationships in the year ahead that could benefit you materially and socially. However, these new pals might not mix too well with your old friends. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – Exercise your initiative instead of waiting for someone else to make the first move. Your chances for achievement are excellent, if you utilize your talents. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – If you want to accomplish as much as possible, don’t be afraid to request assistance. You’ll get no volunteers if nobody knows you need help. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – It will take a positive frame of mind to realize any of your hopes and expectations. Don’t allow any doubts, even a small one, to get a toehold. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – The rate of your accomplishment can be enhanced if you clearly define your goals. Clarity will provide the added time you need to get everything done. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – Try to avoid involvements that would inhibit your independence and mobility. Additionally, you need activities that are mentally challenging instead of physically routine. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – Normally, you’re not overjoyed by changes not of your making, yet you’ll be able to adapt quite advantageously to today’s unexpected developments. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Don’t discount your mate’s ideas about issues of mutual importance, even if they are very different from your own. His or her view might be clearer than yours. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – You won’t be content frittering your time away. Tackling a weighty endeavor will be the only thing that brings you happiness. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – Devote some time to an activity or a sport that you enjoy. Taking a break from your everyday routines could refurbish your psyche and attitude. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – If at all possible, try to entertain some friends to whom you feel socially obligated. Contact them as early as possible to join you in an impromptu get-together. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – You can best gratify your restlessness by getting in touch with a friend whom you haven’t seen much lately. It won’t matter where you meet, you’ll just enjoy each other’s company. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – Your prospects for achieving success continue to look good, especially if you choose to work on an idea you’ve been contemplating that could make or save you some money.

18-year-old could enjoy a single cold beer when he was really thirsty. But alcohol is an addictive drug, and eventually, the one drink leads to another and another. I’m firmly convinced that alcohol use has brought more pain and destruction to families than it has brought joy and healing. Dr. Wallace: My parents are divorced, and I live with my mom and my grandmother. I’m 15 years old. My problem is that ever since the divorce, my mother has been very grouchy. She constantly blames me for every little thing, and she is rude and unkind to Grandma and to me.

Last night I was talking to my boyfriend, and my mother walked by and pulled the telephone from my hand and hung it up. I was so embarrassed I broke into tears. When my boyfriend called back to find out what happened my mother wouldn’t let me answer the phone. All she did was swear a lot. My father is living in a beautiful new apartment, and he told me I could come live with him and his new wife. I would have my own bedroom and live in a nicer neighborhood. My mother said I could go if I want to; she didn’t care. I talked to my grandmother (my mother’s

mother), and she said I should live with my father until my mother “gets her act together.” I would also be in my same school. I know you really care for teens, so I’m wondering what you would advise me to do? I hate to leave my mother, but somehow I feel I am annoying her right now. – Sheila, Tyler, Tex. Sheila: Take your grandmother’s advice. If mother needs and wants you to come back when she “gets her act together,” you still have the option to return to live with her if you want to.

BRIDGE Phillip Alder

If you need a pitch, watch your entries P.G. Wodehouse, a prolific English author who spent a lot of his life on Long Island, had several unhappy experiences with aunts when he was young. He transferred this animosity to his books, including this passage from a Bertie Wooster and Jeeves novel: “There came from without the hoof-beats of a galloping relative, and Aunt Dahlia whizzed in.” Bridge players – whether an aunt or an uncle or another relative – need entries for various reasons, including to cash winners, to take finesses and to draw trumps. In this deal, what is the critical entry card that allows South to make four spades after West leads the heart queen? A simple Stayman sequence leads to four spades. (Note that a red-suit lead defeats three no-trump.) South starts with four losers: one in each suit. The careless declarer wins trick one and immediately plays a trump. But then West can win with his ace and lead another heart (East being careful to complete a high-low to show his doubleton). Suddenly South cannot avoid going down one. The more thoughtful declarer realizes that he must eliminate the heart loser before touching trumps. And once the diamond ace has been dislodged, he can discard two hearts from the board. But he must be careful to win the first trick with dummy’s king. South then calls for the diamond six. East wins and returns the heart five, but declarer takes that with his carefully conserved hand entry, the heart ace, and cashes his two diamond winners, discarding dummy’s remaining hearts. Finally, with only three losers, he plays on trumps.
