2 DeKalb classmates reunite at 99 When classmates Leonard Osland and Don Mosher got together recently, they realized they are about the only ones left from a class of 156 students who graduated from DeKalb Township High School in 1935. Osland’s 99th birthday was the occasion. Comparing yearbooks, they enjoyed reminiscing about their school days from their sophomore though senior years. Osland had transferred from Waterman to DeKalb in the 10th grade, and Mosher offered to show him around. That began a friendship that has lasted most of their lives, although they didn’t see much of each other during the intervening 80 years until recently. In Mosher’s yearbook, Osland wrote in part: “I hope you have fun with your runt pigs and scrub calves at the fair. I’ll see you when your (sic) picking corn and swetting (sic).” Autographing the yearbook for Osland, Mosher also poked fun: “Here’s to the half-cracked miler and hurdler. … The best thing about graduation is being able to get away from guys like you.” Mosher admits that Osland was much more athletic and successful in sports, while Osland said Mosher was very studious and made all A’s. He added, “Don was able to study during noon hour with kids making noise all around him.” All that studying paid off for Mosher, who earned three 4-H scholarships and went on to the University of Illinois, earning a degree in agriculture, then on another scholarship to Harvard, where he earned a master’s degree in business. But he had to join the ROTC at Harvard and subsequently spent four years on active duty in the U.S. Army during World War II. Mosher was sent to England, then Luxembourg, Belgium, France and Germany. After that, he was put on a troop ship and sent to the Pacific theater. First they landed in the Philippines, then went to Japan shortly after it surrendered. Don said their ship was the first to land and occupy bases in Japan. He had many stories to tell about his experience there, including a


visit to Hiroshima, where he saw the devastation caused by the atomic bomb. After being discharged, he joined the DeKalb Agricultural Association, where he spent most of the next 30 years in the poultry division. He took off for five years to work on his family farm after his father suffered a heart attack. Meanwhile, his classmate Osland went into farming after high school, as well as driving a truck hauling coal from the mines in southern Illinois back to DeKalb, and also working for Del Monte “pitching peas” onto the wagons for 32½ cents an hour. He worked on several farms until he settled on an 83-acre farm on Barber Greene Road in 1951, while also running six other farms in the area. He had a small dairy herd, and also raised pigs and grew crops. The woman who owned that farm left it to him in her will, and he continued farming there until retiring in 2000 at the age of 84. Even in high school, Osland helped his father milk and said he got to drive a Model T to school in Waterman so he could deliver two cans of milk to Hayes Dairy on the way each morning. Of course, that is after he got up before dawn to milk cows along with his father. So the two school chums had great stories to share and want to continue getting together as they approach their 100th year. Both had successful marriages with children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. They are definitely part of the “Greatest Generation” as described by journalist Tom Brokaw in his book.

Angel Reyes with the DeKalb Police Department takes pictures July 31, 2015, of the front of the shuttered Otto’s Nightclub building on Lincoln Highway in downtown DeKalb during an investigation of the building.


Developers eye nightclub’s building in DeKalb as lawsuit continues By BRETT ROWLAND DeKALB – Developers have shown interest in buying the former Otto’s Nightclub building in downtown DeKalb even as the city and the building’s owner fight in court. City officials are seeking a court order to have the former Otto’s Nightclub building repaired or demolished because it poses an “imminent threat to public health, safety and welfare,” according to a lawsuit filed in October. Building owner Patrick Looney is fighting that effort and has filed a counterclaim saying the city improperly interfered with his business and should pay him at least $450,000 in damages. The 24,747-square-foot building at the corner of Lincoln Highway and First Street has been closed since heat failure caused a pipe to burst in 2014 and the city declared it uninhabitable. The city claims Looney cut off communication with city officials regarding plans to fix structural and sanitation

issues, including deterioration in the walls, roof and drainage system and mold and asbestos. It also said the property is “an aesthetic blight upon the city” in addition to being a danger to public health. Looney denied the allegations in the city’s lawsuit in documents filed Nov. 14 by his attorney, Michael Coghlan. In his response, Looney said the city purposely interfered with his business by refusing to return his liquor license, and thus any problems with the building are essentially the city’s fault. “Mr. Looney sought to reactivate the Otto’s liquor license in order to generate income to pay [the mortgage] and maintain the property,” according to the lawsuit. “Upon request for reactivation of the liquor license, the city of DeKalb refused to grant the reactivation of the license contrary to the city’s earlier representations. The parties knew or should have known that the liquor license from the city of DeKalb is an integral and necessary part of the operation of the business such that without it, maintenance

issues could arise.” Looney claims that the city intentionally delayed issuing permits for the building so that he wouldn’t be able to get his liquor license back and that city officials bad-mouthed the property in the local press, which “resulted in a loss of potential buyers for the property.” “The combination of the city’s refusal to reissue the liquor license and improper negative statements concerning the condition of the property created the issues of which [Looney] now complains,” according to the documents. “[The city] may not benefit from its own improper actions.” Looney contends the building is safe, court documents show. National Bank & Trust Co., which has since been acquired by First Midwest Bank, sued Looney in May for failing to maintain the property. A judge ordered Looney to pay the bank almost $470,000 in that case. In his counterclaim, Looney alleges that he was found in breach of his contract with the bank because of the city’s

improper interference. The counterclaim seeks actual and punitive damages and attorney costs, according to court documents. The city’s lawsuit asks a judge to order Looney to either repair the building, tear it down or give the city permission to demolish the building if he won’t comply. DeKalb City Attorney Dean Frieders couldn’t be reached for comment Wednesday. The building remains on the market, where it is getting some attention, 1st Ward Alderman David Jacobson said. “A couple of developers have shown interest,” he said. Any sale could pose some challenges. An appraiser’s report submitted to the city in November 2015 reported that the value of the underlying site was $200,000, while the cost to demolish the building would be near $410,000. John Pappas, owner of Pappas Development, said he couldn’t comment Wednesday when asked if he was looking at buying the building.

DeKalb City Council denies plan to add apartments to Campus Cinemas building By STEPHANIE MARKHAM

DeKALB – A developer’s failure to adjust his construction plans to meet city codes led to the failure of a plan for apartments at the former Campus Cinemas movie theater, although City Council members still want to leave the door open for redevelopment there. On Monday, the DeKalb City Council denied a plan to build a two-story, 22-unit apartment complex above the former movie theater at 1015 Blackhawk Road. The theater has been closed for several years. But developer Pete Occhipinti did not address several issues with his development plan, which he was advised about over months of conversations with city staff, Community Development Director Jo Ellen Charlton said. The city would have required 183 parking spaces based on the number of bedrooms in the apartments and seats in the theater, and the developer planned for 184. However, Occhipinti’s method of arriving at that number was unclear and “deceptive at best,” according to the city staff report on the plan. “His intention was to reduce the size of each of the four theater spaces in half and turn the rest of the space into storage,” Charlton said. “Coinci-

This is a rendering of a proposed project that would have added two floors of apartments to the Campus Cinemas building. The DeKalb City Council rejected the plan Monday. dentally, the parking requirement for storage is zero, so we questioned his motivation and intent for doing that.” Charlton said further plans to maximize the number of parking spaces would have left the lot without adequate room for emergency vehicles, and the number of compact car spaces exceeded the city’s limit. Other issues included neglecting various Unified Development Ordinance standards for special-use projects and having exterior construction

materials inconsistent with the appearance of nearby buildings. Sixth Ward Alderman Dave Baker said he would encourage other development plans that make better use of the space. “The idea of building more apartments in Greek Row, when we’re trying to tear down apartments and not have that density, unless we’ve accidentally made it so that he can do it right, I’m not going to bend, and I hope no future councils bend the rules,”

Baker said. First Ward Alderman David Jacobson said he did not believe Occhipinti intended to reopen Campus Cinemas as a working theater, and the council should leave the door open for him or another developer to propose a viable commercial development. “I don’t want to close the door on the potential that the site is developed with a quality mixed-use product that the neighborhood and surrounding businesses desperately need,” he said.

Sycamore man accused of stalking woman By BRETT ROWLAND SYCAMORE – Police said a Sycamore man who concocted an elaborate story about being the victim of an attack early Tuesday was actually stalking a local woman. Ryan P. Recker, 26, of the 900 block Birchwood Drive, Sycamore, was charged with stalking. If convicted, he could face one to three years in prison. Police were called to the Sycamore State Theater, 420 W. State St., Sycamore, at 1:53 a.m. Tuesday to talk to Recker, who claimed he had been beaten up, according to a police synopsis contained in court records. Recker told police that he been jumped and beaten

by two men after an argument with his girlfriend at his girlfriend’s house in Malta. He told police that the men kicked him in the chest, punched him in the head, then drove him in his own car to Sycamore. Recker said they then left in another vehicle, according to court records. When DeKalb County Sheriff’s deputies called Ryan P. the woman Recker said Recker was his girlfriend, she told police that she wasn’t and had never been in a relationship with Recker. She also said that she had blocked Recker from calling her or contacting

her through social media. The woman told police that she had been at work when Recker called the business twice, once hanging up and once speaking with her. She said she saw Recker’s car pull into the parking lot after the calls. She said he knew when she was getting off work and that she was alone. When the woman closed the business and walked to her car, she saw Recker following her. She then drove home, but saw Recker’s car pull up at her home shortly after. She locked the doors, and her roommate called her boyfriend to the house. She said she saw the two men talk before Recker left. She also told police that she was scared of what Recker might do because he

had previously entered her home, uninvited, through the back door. Police later arrested Recker at his home on Birchwood Drive and took him to jail. At a bond hearing Tuesday, Assistant State’s Attorney Maribeth Ennis asked Judge Robbin Stuckert to set bond at $50,000. “The victim is very concerned for her safety,” Ennis said. The judge set bond at $15,000 and ordered that Recker have no contact with the woman. Recker remained at the DeKalb County Jail as of Wednesday afternoon. He is next due in court Dec. 9 for a bond reduction hearing.

DeKalb man gets 30 months’ probation for unauthorized videotaping of 15-year-old By BRETT ROWLAND SYCAMORE – A judge sentenced a DeKalb man to 30 months’ probation and ordered that he get a sex offender evaluation for recording a teenage girl in a bathroom of his home in 2012. Daniel A. Maillet, 40, of the 100 block of Mattek Ave., DeKalb, was charged with possession of child pornography and unauthorized vid- Daniel A. eotaping in November Maillet 2012. He was accused of using an iPod Touch to record a 15-yearold girl as she entered the bathroom to take a shower. After a bench trial in March, Chief Judge Robbin Stuckert found Maillet guilty of unauthorized videotaping. He was acquitted of the child pornography charges.

On Tuesday, Stuckert sentenced Maillet to 30-months of probation, ordered that he submit to a sex offender evaluation and follow all recommendations of the evaluation. He will also have to do 50 hours of community service and pay fines other court costs. During a sentencing hearing, the judge said that the video never captured nude images of the girl and that a pre-sentence report indicated Maillet had a low risk of committing further crimes. However, she said she was concerned by statements Maillet made that downplayed what he had done and his reasons for doing it. Although the crime didn’t result in physical harm, the judge emphasized the damage that had been done. “Your actions did have a profound effect on [the girl],” Stuckert told Maillet. Assistant State’s Attorney David Weichel had asked the judge to consider a sentence that include time in jail or

prison. “It’s unfortunate the defendant won’t have to register as a sex offender,” he said. Weichel said that the crime was a sexually motivated offense. He also read victim impact statements from the victim and the victim’s mother. Both said the crime had hurt them and made it hard for them to trust others. “To this day, it still haunts me,” the victim’s statement said. Maillet’s attorney, Blake Consentino, said the offense was serious, but

said prosecutors were unable to prove that the crime was sexual in nature. He asked for leniency for his client, who he said had already lost his job and his wife. Maillet declined to make a statement at the sentencing hearing. Before the case went to trial, Consentino had argued that the laws under which Maillet was charged were unconstitutional. When that failed, he urged the judge to reconsider, arguing that the girl had never specifically told Maillet that she didn’t want to be videotaped using the bathroom or taking a shower. “The alleged victim had unlimited opportunity to inform the defendant that he did not have her consent, but she did not take advantage of that opportunity,” Consentino wrote in a motion. “Instead, she waited until after the fact: she waited until after a video or visual depiction of her was taken that she apparently did not like, to inform the defendant that he did not have consent.”

Colorful butterflies are admired and even the inspiration for expensive, valuable jewelry. But, many people are annoyed or even afraid of “bugs,” and few would want a caterpillar pin or bracelet. In earlier centuries, all sorts of insects and small creatures found in nature were popular. Ladybugs bring luck. Frogs are most appropriate as gifts for travelers. They bring good luck and a safe return. Snakes, perhaps because they shed their skins each year, represent fertility and health. The snake still is used as a symbol for medical groups. A snake biting its tail represents eternity. Queen Victoria was given a snake ring in 1839 as an engagement ring. There are many antique or vintage gold and jeweled snake bracelets, rings or necklaces. But the butterfly is perhaps the most popular because of the beauty of the design. And, the butterfly represents change and a free spirit. A 4 1/2inch Russian butterfly pin, made in the early 1900s, sold at the New Orleans Auction Gallery in 2016 for $5,000. It is made with rubies, sapphires, emeralds, and old mine-cut diamonds set in 14-carat gold. *** Q: I’m looking for information on the mark on the bottom of my teacup. I have been told that it was used by Porzellanfabriken Schneider & Co. between 1926 and 1937, but I haven’t been able to find any marks like it or to verify the information. The Royal Devon name is marked on top of the glazing, and everything else is under it, including the number “406” stamped into the porcelain. A: This mark was used by J. Schneider & Co., which was in business in Altrohlau, Bohemia (now Stara Rola, Czech Republic) from 1904 to 1945. Your mark includes the word “Czechoslovakia.” Altrohlau didn’t become part of Czechoslovakia until after World War I, so your tea cup was made between

1918 and 1938, when Hitler annexed part of Czechoslovakia and occupied the rest of it. Royal Devon may be the name of the pattern. *** Q: My parents bought a portable electric lamp in Canada in the 1940s. The base has a big plaster elephant and a glass ball-shaped globe that holds the bulb. The bottom is stamped “Nerlich & Co. of Toronto.” What can you tell me about the maker? A: Nerlich & Co. was founded by Henry Nerlich (1828-1901), who emigrated from Germany in 1848 and worked as a watchmaker. In 1858, he started his own company, selling watchmakers’ materials and jewelry. He soon expanded his business and imported “fancy goods” from Germany. In 1869, tobacco and “druggists’ sundries” were added to the line, and the company no longer sold jewelry and watchmakers’ materials. After he died, his sons ran the business and by 1908 imported goods from Europe, Japan, and the U.S. The name of the company changed over the years and was Nerlich & Co. by 1875. It was still working in the late 1950s. Figural lamps with globes were popular in the 1920s. *** Q: I have two “Rain Check” tickets for the 1948 World Series between the Cleveland Indians and the Boston Braves. Cleveland won the series, and are eagerly waiting to win another. Are they worth anything? A: The Cleveland Indians also won the World Series in 1920, when they beat the Brooklyn Dodgers. Their 1948 opponent, the Boston Braves, hadn’t been in a World Series since 1914. Full, unused tickets are worth more than ticket stubs or rain checks. Condition is important. A full ticket for the 1948 World Series in “near mint” condition could be worth more than $600, while a stub in near mint condition could be worth about $250-$400. Those in “very good” condition are worth much less, about $200 for a full ticket and $100 or less for a ticket stub. Rarity also determines price, and prices for some game

Court weighs decision on LGBT workplace bias By MICHAEL TARM The Associated Press

CHICAGO – A rare full-court session of a U.S. appeals court in Chicago heard arguments Wednesday on whether protections under a 1964 Civil Rights Act should be expanded to cover workplace discrimination against LGBT employees, as hopes dim among some gay rights activists that the question will be resolved in their favor after Republican election victories. Several of the 11 judges at the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals signaled they are ready to enter what would be a historic ruling broadening the scope the 52-year-old landmark law, with the court directing the toughest questions during the hourlong hearing at a lawyer who argued only Congress could extend the protections. Judge Richard Posner repeatedly interrupted the lawyer representing an Indiana community college that was sued by a lesbian for alleged discrimination and at one point asked: “Who will be hurt if gays and lesbians have a little more job protection?” When attorney John Maley said he couldn’t think of anyone who would be harmed, Posner shot back, “So, what’s the big deal?”

Caretakers of disabled Illinois residents could get OT pay

SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois General Assembly approved a measure allowing home health care workers to get overtime pay for working more than 40 hours a week. The 68-42 vote in the House on Wednesday would allow disabled people aided by visiting workers to keep familiar faces helping them even if work exceeds 40 hours in a week. The bill now goes to Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner. But Rauner cited cost in severely limiting overtime pay this year after a federal rule qualified the workers for time-and-a-half overtime pay. Advocates said it’s meant that disabled people had to find newcomers to finish up a few hours each week – people who are unfamiliar to the clients and hard to find for minimal hours.


Even if the 7th Circuit becomes the first U.S. appellate court to rule that the law covers sex-orientation bias, legal experts said the issue is likely to land before the Supreme Court. Chances of a majority of justices agreeing that workplace protections should include LGBT workers will be slimmer if President-elect Donald Trump fills a high court vacancy with a social conservative. A GOP-majority House and Senate also makes it unlikely the next Congress will amend the statute, said Chicago-based labor lawyer Barry Hartstein. “You can’t count on Congress or the

courts,” said Hartstein, who wants the act to cover LGBT workers. President Barack Obama’s administration has taken the position that the law already prohibits discrimination of LGBT workers. It has criticized courts for a reluctance to reach the same conclusion. The 7th Circuit decided in October to rehear the case of teacher Kimberly Hively, who claimed Ivy Tech Community College didn’t hire her full time because she is a lesbian. The full court vacated the July finding by three of its own judges that the civil rights law doesn’t cover sexual-orientation bias. A new ruling is expected within several weeks. Wednesday’s hearing focused on the meaning of the word “sex” in Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the provision that bans workplace bias based on race, religion, national origin or sex. Multiple court rulings back Maley’s contention that Congress meant for the word to refer only to whether a worker was male or female. Given that, he said it would be wrong to stretch the meaning of “sex” in the statute to also include sexual orientation. The school’s lawyer conceded the law is imprecise, but added: “That



“You seem to think the meaning of the statute was frozen on the day it passed. That, of course, is false. Are we bound by what people thought in 1964?”

Lawmakers ask Rauner to resume contract talks

SPRINGFIELD – Nearly three dozen Illinois legislators of both political stripes are asking Gov. Bruce Rauner to resume contract negotiations with the state’s largest public-employee union. The lawmakers said Wednesday the issue is crucial to the struggling state. Decatur Democratic Rep. Sue Scherer said, “Nothing happens if you’re not at the table.” Republican Rauner ended talks last winter with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees state council. A state labor board sided with Rauner this month that talks were at “impasse.” That means the governor can impose his terms. He did that a second time Wednesday in announcing an employee drug and alcohol testing plan. AFSCME said in a statement it will talk. Rauner spokeswoman Catherine Kelly said the two sides should cooperate on implementing the governor’s provisions.

Regulators: Illinois doctor’s pill mill supplied 11 states

CHICAGO – Illinois regulators have yanked a suburban Chicago doctor’s license for running a cash-only pill mill and prescribing vast amounts of fentanyl and other addictive painkillers to patients in 11 states. Illinois is sharing information about Dr. Paul C. Madison with Indiana, where he has an office. Michigan barred Madison from practicing last year. Madison prescribed 1.6 million doses of controlled substances in 2015 and 2016, according to paperwork signed Tuesday by Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation Acting Director Jessica Baer. His patients lived in Illinois, California, Florida, Iowa, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Wisconsin. Madison ran a clinic in Riverside, Illinois, that has drawn suspicion for years, the document stated. Pharmacists were refusing to fill Madison’s prescriptions because of the large quantities and patients’ behavior.

makes it an issue for Congress.” Several judges challenged him for arguing it’s not a federal court’s place to mandate that a law do something lawmakers didn’t originally intend for it to do. “You seem to think the meaning of the statute was frozen on the day it passed,” Posner said to Maley. “That, of course, is false.” And the judge added: “Are we bound by what people thought in 1964?” He and other judges pointed to bans on interracial marriage as examples of laws that changed or were expanded by courts as societal norms changed. In his presentation, the teacher’s lawyer pointed to what he described as the absurdity of one 1980s Supreme Court finding that if workers are discriminated against because they don’t behave around the office by norms of how men or women should behave, then that violates the Civil Rights Law. But if a man or woman is discriminated against at work for being gay that was found not to violate the Civil Rights Act. “You can’t discriminate against a woman because she rides a Harley, had Bears tickets or has tattoos,” attorney Gregory Nevins said. “But you can if she’s lesbian.”


Ill. agency revokes group home provider’s license

CHICAGO – The Illinois Department of Human Services has revoked a group home provider’s license and cited the state-funded business for safety issues and rights violations of individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities. On Monday, the department’s chief licensing official, Felicia Stanton Gray, told Reuben Goodwin Sr. she was revoking the license for his eight group homes and daytime training program, all under the name Disability Services of Illinois, the Chicago Tribune reported. “I think we do a good job to make sure people are safe and that the staff is trained,” Goodwin said last month. Goodwin can appeal the decision by requesting a hearing before Dec. 23, but the department still will move 45 adults to other community-living options in the next two weeks. Human Services spokeswoman Meredith Krantz said the agency will work toward changing the way group homes “are held accountable in order to ensure individuals with disabilities receive high levels of care.”

Stein asks for presidential convict him of murder or convict him of voluntary manslaughter. recount in Michigan LANSING, Mich. – Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein on Wednesday requested a full hand recount of Michigan’s presidential vote, making it the third state narrowly won by Republican Donald Trump where she wants another look at the results. Stein previously asked for recounts of the votes in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Trump defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton by about 10,700 votes out of nearly 4.8 million ballots cast in Michigan, or two-tenths of a percentage point. But Stein alleged that irregularities and the possibility that vote scanning devices could have been hacked call the results into question. Elections officials in all three states have expressed confidence in the results. Michigan’s recount could start as early as Friday, although a challenge to the recount by Trump may delay it.

The case then went to the jury Wednesday evening after a monthlong trial in which 55 witnesses testified. They deliberated for about an hour before going home for the night. Slager was charged with murder, but the judge said Wednesday that the jury also could consider manslaughter in the death of 50-year-old Walter Scott, who died after five of the eight bullets Slager fired hit him in the back as he tried to run away.

Trump diving right in by tapping Cabinet members By JULIE PACE and JOSH BOAK The Associated Press

WASHINGTON – Donald Trump promised to “drain the swamp” in the nation’s capital. Instead, he’s diving right in. So far, the president-elect is tapping people with deep ties to Washington and Wall Street as he fills out his Cabinet, turning to two power centers he vilified as greedy, corrupt and out of touch with Americans during his White House campaign. His choices have won praise from Republicans relieved by his more conventional choices, but could risk angering voters who rallied behind his calls for upending the political system. Two of Trump’s early picks are wealthy financial industry insiders with ties to the kinds of institutions he railed against as a candidate. Elaine Chao, his choice for transportation secretary and an accomplished political figure in her own right, is married to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell – blending family and political power in a way Trump fiercely criticized campaign rival Hillary Clinton for. Jeff Sessions, Trump’s selection for attorney general, has spent two decades in the Senate, and Tom Price, his health and human services nominee, is a six-term congressman. The gap between Trump’s campaign rhetoric and his governing decisions is most striking regarding his emerging economic team. On Wednesday, he announced that he planned to nominate former Goldman Sachs executive Steven Mnuchin as his Treasury secretary and billionaire investor Wilbur Ross to lead the

Commerce Department. As a candidate, Trump said Wall Street had created “tremendous problems” for the country. He included the CEO of Goldman Sachs in a TV advertisement that accused global financial powers of having “robbed our working class.” Mnuchin and Ross also have financial links to Trump’s White House bid, with Mnuchin having led the campaign’s fundraising efforts. Trump repeatedly bragged that his personal wealth – he mostly self-funded his campaign during the primaries – meant he would not be beholden to donors who might expect their financial contributions to be repaid with powerful jobs or insider access. “I can’t be bought,” Trump said during the campaign. “I won’t owe anybody anything.” Trump’s transition team brushed aside questions about whether there are inconsistencies between the president-elect’s campaign rhetoric and his Cabinet picks. “These are experts who know how to win,” spokesman Jason Miller said Wednesday. By picking billionaires, as well as a smattering of millionaires, for his Cabinet, Trump is asking voters to trust that privileged insiders can help a stressed and dispirited middle class – although he, like past presidential candidates, promised he would change that dynamic. Few of his choices have outwardly displayed much of a common touch. Many live surrounded by a level of wealth that most Americans struggle to fathom – and prospered in recent decades as many Americans coped with stagnant incomes.

Drought, flood, fire and now killer storms plague South By JAY REEVES

The Associated Press BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Tornadoes that dropped out of the night sky killed five people in two states and injured at least a dozen more Wednesday, adding to a seemingly biblical onslaught of drought, flood and fire plaguing the South. The storms tore through just as firefighters began to get control of wildfires that killed seven and damaged or wiped out more than 700 homes and businesses around the resort town of Gatlinburg, Tennessee. In Alabama, the weather system dumped more than 2 inches of rain in areas that had been parched by months of choking drought. At least 13 confirmed twisters damaged homes, splintered barns and toppled trees in parts of Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee, the National Weather Service said. Tombstones were knocked over in the cemetery behind the badly damaged Rosalie Baptist Church, near where three people died in northeastern Alabama. “It looks like the rapture happened up there,” said church member Steve Hall, referring to the end-times belief of many Christians. “Are we thinking the Lord is trying to get our attention?” said the pastor, Roger Little. The National Weather Service was assessing damage from multiple possible tornadoes across the region. At least five hit Alabama, and three more struck southern Tennessee, and one confirmed in Louisiana and at least four in Mississippi, forecasters said. A possible tornado was spotted on the ground Wednesday a few miles from Atlanta, and flights were briefly delayed at the city’s main airport, but no major damage occurred. Three people were killed and one person critically injured in a mobile home after an apparent twister hit tiny Rosalie, about 115 miles northeast of

People work to salvage items from Sullivan Cycles on Wednesday after it was destroyed by overnight storms and high winds in Neel, Ala. Birmingham, said Jackson County Chief Deputy Rocky Harnen. A suspected tornado was responsible for the death of a husband and wife in southern Tennessee’s Polk County, while an unknown number of others were injured, said Tennessee Emergency Management Agency spokesman Dean Flener. No details were immediately available. The Daily Post-Athenian in Athens, Tennessee, reported the Meigs County Sheriff’s Office said lightning is suspected as the cause of two deaths in a mobile home fire overnight. Shirley Knight, whose family owns a small propane business in Rosalie, said the storm crashed in on them in the middle of the night. Daybreak revealed mangled sheets of metal, insulation and a ladder hanging in trees. “We had a plaza, a service station and several buildings connected together, and it’s all gone,” said Knight,

adding that the storm also destroyed a church and damaged buildings at a nearby Christmas tree farm. The same storm apparently hit a closed day care center in the community of Ider, injuring seven people,


including three children who had left their mobile home to seek shelter, said Anthony Clifton, DeKalb County emergency management director. Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley issued a state of emergency because of the storms. Meanwhile, thousands of people were without power, including up to 45,000 homes at one point in Alabama. Many schools dismissed early in Alabama and Georgia to avoid having students on the road in buses as storms continued to roll across the region Wednesday. Teams from the National Weather Service confirmed that at least two weak tornadoes struck western Alabama, and meteorologist Kurt Weber from Huntsville said they were assessing damage tracks from at least four other possible tornadoes. Tornadoes and hail also were reported Tuesday in Louisiana and Mississippi. The National Weather Service in Jackson, Mississippi, counted six confirmed tornadoes in areas of the state it monitors. Despite dozens of tornado warnings, authorities said no one was injured in Mississippi, but six homes were reported destroyed in one southeastern county.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of Calif. speaks to reporters Wednesday after the House Democratic Caucus elections for House leadership positions on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.


The Associated Press

WASHINGTON – House Democrats re-elected Nancy Pelosi as their leader Wednesday, ratifying the status quo in a changing Washington despite widespread frustration over the party’s direction. That disenchantment manifested itself in 63 lawmakers supporting Pelosi’s opponent, Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan, in the secret-ballot vote. That was by far the largest defection Pelosi has suffered since she began leading House Democrats in 2002. Still, the California lawmaker had declared ahead of time that more than two-thirds of the caucus was supporting her, and she won almost exactly two-thirds with 134 votes. It was a testament to her vote-counting skills and to her ability to hang onto power even in dark days for Democrats, as they confront a capital that will be fully controlled by the GOP next year. “I have a special spring in my step today because this opportunity is a special one, to lead the House Democrats, bring everyone together as we go forward,” Pelosi said after the vote, appearing elated in her victory. She disputed the suggestion that she might be concerned about the defections she suffered. “They weren’t defections, I had two-thirds of the vote,” Pelosi said, repeating “two-thirds, twothirds” to a group of assembled reporters. And she insisted Democrats would rebound. “We know how to win elections. We’ve done it in the past, we will do it again.” Supporters said the 76-year-old Pelosi was their best bet to confront a

President Donald Trump from the minority after Democrats picked up only a half-dozen seats in the House, far fewer than anticipated and well below Pelosi’s predictions. Republicans are on track to hold at least 240 seats in the House next year, while Democrats will have 194. “We need someone who is battle-tested,” Rep. Debbie Dingell of Michigan told fellow Democrats in nominating Pelosi. “We need our leader to be seasoned, tough.” For their part, Ryan and his backers insisted that they had won a victory in sending a message to Pelosi about the significant desire for change among House Democrats. “Somebody had to do something,” said Ryan, a seven-term lawmaker who before now had been largely a back-bencher. “Our prospects have improved just because of this conversation.” Yet Democrats’ marginalized status was evident as Ryan struggled to answer a question about who would lead the party forward, before concluding: “We’re all going to participate in leading the party.” Leadership elections were originally scheduled to be held before Thanksgiving but were delayed to give Democrats more time to consider a path forward. Lawmakers expressed frustration over a range of issues, including stagnant leadership in their caucus, and Democrats’ failures to connect with white working class voters. “I’m very concerned we just signed the Democratic party’s death certificate ... unless we change what we are talking about, which is really the working man and woman’s agenda,” Rep. Kurt Schrader of Oregon said.

New approach to choosing speaker

A courageous, bipartisan coalition could bring new leadership to Illinois House The goal of the Illinois Legislature, reduced to its simplest terms, is to make life better for all the people of Illinois. Legislative leaders, unfortunately, aren’t delivering on that goal. The result? Massive deficits, billions in debt, hugely unfunded pensions, billions in unpaid bills and gridlock on such basics as a state budget. House Speaker Michael Madigan, 74, a Chicago Democrat who has led the House for 32 of the past 34 years, has presided over a failing state that is falling further behind. A House member since 1971, and speaker since 1983 (with a two-year gap in the 1990s), Madigan seems less interested in the public’s welfare than in his own. For reasons known only to Madigan, holding power is his obsession. But the Nov. 8 election saw losses for Madigan. Democrats will control 67 seats when the new House convenes in January, with Republicans having 51 seats. That compares to this year’s House, where Madigan has a 71-seat supermajority, while Republicans, led by Minority Leader Jim Durkin, R-Western Springs, have 47 seats. Many Illinois voters have said they want the parties to work together for the public good. Under Madigan’s leadership, as he stubbornly locks horns with Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner, that’s unlikely to happen. For the first time in years, however, several House Democrats publicly expressed concerns over Madigan’s lack of a positive agenda going forward. They’re not ready to commit their support to his re-election as speaker. To those Democrats, their fellow party members, and House Republicans, may we suggest a new approach? When the election for House speaker takes place, minority Republicans should not do the same thing they’ve done for years – fruitlessly vote for their party caucus leader for speaker. Instead, after some behind-thescenes negotiations, they should announce the following: “We are prepared to vote en masse



for a compromise Democratic candidate for House speaker.” That’s right, 51 Republicans voting for a Democratic candidate who is not named Madigan. Republicans could continue: “We, in fact, will nominate such a person. We will then supply 51 votes, out of the minimum 60 that are required for election. That’s 85 percent of the total.” Democrats disaffected by Madigan’s leadership thus would have an opportunity and a choice to bravely chart a new course. It would take a coalition of only nine Democrats to join 51 Republican colleagues to unseat Madigan as House speaker. Nine Democrats who want Illinois to have fresh leadership.

Is this outside the box? Definitely. Unorthodox? Of course. But it could happen. House members, after all, are not a monolithic group of stodgy old-timers, unalterably set in their ways. A lot of fresh faces have joined the House so far this decade. Democrats have added 37 new House members in the 2010s, and Republicans 33 (not counting the Nov. 8 election results). From that group of 70, surely there are aspiring leaders with fresh, innovative ideas who would like their turn to lead. Insanity is defined as doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. That’s like electing Madigan speaker over and over and expecting real

change. Think about it. Hasn’t Madigan had long enough to make life better for Illinoisans? Yes. Wouldn’t it be crazy to keep electing him House speaker? Yes. Shouldn’t a courageous coalition of Democrats and Republicans band together to end the Madigan era? Definitely. High drama would result when Madigan’s minions nominate him, the Republicans nominate their coalition Democratic alternative, and a roll-call vote is taken. Riding this coalition bronco might be a little rough at first, but it would be worth the effort to topple Madigan from his high horse.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

lenges begin with their own divisions. Some Republicans just want to repeal Obamacare, with no replacement. Others say they would like a replacement, but don’t like the ideas leading Republicans have outlined. Passage of a bill that mostly repeals Obamacare by 2019 would empower both groups of Republicans to block replacement legislation. The repeal-only bloc would already have gotten most of what it wants. The Republican congressmen who are lukewarm about a replacement would, judging from past form, decide that doing nothing is better than whatever flawed bill Republicans put forward. Democrats, meanwhile, would have an incentive to play their own game of chicken. They know that most Republican politicians do not want repeal-only to take effect because millions of voters would lose their insurance coverage. A lot of them might decide to wait until the deadline draws near and tell Republicans that they have to call off the expiration of Obamacare or face catastrophe. Meanwhile, Obamacare’s exchanges, already in perilous health, would degrade further. Insurers have been

pulling out of the exchanges rather than incurring continued losses in covering their relatively old and sick population; the remaining ones have been jacking up premiums. Cut off subsidies to the exchanges, and more insurers will leave or raise premiums. That’s especially the case if the Republican reconciliation bill – the one they are planning to pass in early 2017 – gets rid of the individual mandate immediately. Without the mandate forcing healthy and young people to buy insurance, the exchange populations will be even more expensive to cover. Until now, voters have blamed Democrats for the problems with Obamacare. That might not be the case after Republicans enact the first part of their repeal-and-delay strategy. James Capretta, a leading conservative health care expert, has criticized repeal-and-delay for similar reasons. He thinks the most likely outcome of the strategy is that Obamacare comes back to life, this time with Republican votes. He advocates a different course: A reconciliation bill should include much of the replacement plan that Speaker of the House Paul Ryan already has outlined, and Republicans should try to reach a compromise on that bill with some Senate Democrats. What might such a compromise look like? The Republicans could try to get some Democrats to agree to

didates to get away with vague plans and platitudes; they should demand detailed, feasible ideas for resolving problems. Candidates should encourage broad community participation and listen seriously to what they hear. I present a few of my ideas here and hope that candidates and the broader community will add to this list and that candidates will respond to the major issues raised with concrete plans. Candidates for office must do more than present their credentials; saying something is wrong is not enough; what is required is offering practical solutions. 1. We need more taxpaying and job producing businesses. We need ideas

that go beyond giving incentives to already viable businesses. We need strategies to develop and attract new businesses and cultural attractions, perhaps encouraging startups by working with Northern Illinois University and building on the existing strengths of DeKalb. 2. Our core economic development engine is NIU and it is losing enrollment, hurting the city’s economy; city officials can do little about the internal decisions of NIU, but we can all work to make the city a safe, welcoming and attractive place for the students. Ideas on how to do so are crucial. 3. As is the rest of the nation, DeKalb is experiencing demographic change.

ANOTHER VIEW Ramesh Ponnuru

abolish the individual mandate and simultaneously to modify Obamacare’s protections for people with pre-existing conditions so that people would not have an incentive to wait until they get sick to buy insurance. They could end federal diktats about what essential benefits all insurance policies have to cover. They could simplify the law’s tax credits and make them phase out more gradually. And they could pursue some of these ideas in reconciliation and some of them in separate bills. Many Democrats would find these ideas, which would substantially undo Obamacare’s centralization of health care policy, unattractive. But some Democrats might find them acceptable as a way of ensuring that most of the people who got coverage through Obamacare retained their coverage and that people with pre-existing conditions were protected – especially if they worry that Republicans might just repeal the whole law if they do not cooperate. Any such compromise, to go forward, would have to win enough Democrats to make up for the Republicans who would jump ship for anything short of full repeal.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR DeKalb candidates must have detailed plans

To the Editor: Our community faces substantial economic and social problems. Volunteer organizations – such as #ProudlyDeKalb and Beloved Community – work to address these problems, but voluntarism alone is not enough. Governments, businesses, nonprofits and volunteer organizations, all must play a role in guiding economic growth and social development of DeKalb. The elections next spring will provide the opportunity to chose leaders to guide the community’s rebirth. More people need to vote, and get involved in the discussions during the campaigns. They should not allow can-

We need ideas of how to accommodate these changes by welcoming, encouraging and integrating groups new to our town who will constitute our community’s future. 4. The perception of crime in DeKalb exceeds the reality, but perceptions matter. How do we fight the crime that does exist while reducing the exaggerations of its extent? I ask residents to add to this list and ask candidates to think seriously about the issues raised, and to propose and discuss possible solutions with the public, helping us choose for whom to vote.

In the days since the election, Republicans have realized that they are in a tight spot on Obamacare. They seem to be lurching toward a strategy that will make it tighter. Republicans have vowed over and over again to repeal and replace the health care law, but they do not yet have a detailed plan or the votes to enact it. Democrats, meanwhile, remain committed to the law, and there will be at least 48 of them in the new Senate. Unless eight of them defect, they have enough votes to filibuster Republican bills to undo it. Republicans probably do not have the votes to abolish the filibuster. Under certain conditions, Senate Republicans can use a procedure called “reconciliation” to pass legislation with a simple majority. But they probably cannot change Obamacare’s regulations, as opposed to its tax and spending provisions, that way. Given these constraints, Republicans have lit on the idea of using reconciliation to repeal as much of Obamacare as they can, but with a delay: The repeal would go into effect in two years. This would give them enough time to work on a second bill that takes up both a replacement plan and the remaining parts of Obamacare. Republicans will have the votes for the first bill, as long as they do not think too hard about the challenges of getting the second one. Those chal-

The NIU volleyball team celebrates after beating Miami (Ohio) in the championship match of the Mid-American Conference tournament on Nov. 20 at the NIU Convocation Center in DeKalb. The Huskies will play at No. 15 seed Missouri in the NCAA tournament at 6:30 p.m. today in Columbia, Missouri.

Huskies have extra confidence after already beating a pair of tourney teams By JESSE SEVERSON During the regular season, the Northern Illinois volleyball team played four of the teams in the NCAA tournament field and beat two of them. Today, the Huskies are looking to make it three. After making the tournament as an automatic bid when they won the Mid-American Conference tournament, the Huskies face No. 15 seed Missouri at 6:30 p.m. today in the first round of the 64-team tournament in Columbia, Missouri. “I feel like it’s a great opportunity for us to continue our season against a really good team,” NIU coach Ray Gooden said. “I think every team has earned the right to be here in some capacity, whether it’s through the atlarge or the automatic bid. Any one of these teams is good enough to do some-

They also were the champions of a conference that sent four teams to the NCAA tournament.

Carly Kan, a senior outside hitter from Honolulu, was the conference’s Freshman of the Year in 2013 and is a three-time all-SEC player for the Tigers. Alyssa Munlyn, a 6-foot-2 sophomore, is a two-time all-SEC middle blocker and junior outside hitter Melanie Crow, a transfer from Ole Miss, also made the all-SEC team this season. “They’re a storied program that has done some really good things over the last few years,” Gooden said. “They’ve had a lot of success being the SEC champion, so we’re going to be playing against one of the top teams in the country.” The NCAA tournament lists only the top 16 seeds for the bracket, and the Huskies (25-5) already have played No. 8 Washington (26-4), which beat NIU in straight sets at a tournament in Hawaii. They also lost to Hawaii (22-5) at that tournament, but have beaten two teams in the field – Miami (Ohio) (24-6)

in the championship of the MAC tournament and they swept James Madison (21-10) at a tournament in Washington. The winner of tonight’s match will play either Purdue (18-13) or Iowa State (18-10), which play before the Huskies. “We just saw a tournament format last week – although it was at our place – of watching a match before and the anticipation and all that stuff,” Gooden said of winning the MAC tournament Nov. 20 in DeKalb. “All those things we get ready for, and we just want to play somebody and do what we’ve been doing all year long.” It’s the seventh trip to the NCAA tournament for the Huskies and the first since 2011, when they lost to Miami (Florida) in a four-set loss in the first round. They have not won an NCAA tournament match since beating Florida State in four sets in 1998.

The team compiled a 73-33 record during that span,including an impressive 34-3 run from 2010 to ‘12.

That included a thrilling 35-31 loss to Montini in the Class 5A semifinals in 2011. Before accepting the head coaching job, Fedderly spent 14 years as an assistant for Joe Thorgesen and was part of the back-to-back undefeated state


Cogs defeat Thunder, move to 4-2 By JOHN GALLIONE GENOA – The Genoa-Kingston girls basketball team was able to improve its record to 4-2 with a 44-36 victory over Woodstock North. Despite the outcome, Cogs coach Kyle Henkel wasn’t all too pleased with what he called “a lack of energy.” Henkel said his team will have to come out of the gate with more gusto in the future. “They were beating us to all of the loose balls,” Henkel said. “We were flat defensively, and when that happens, it leads to being flat offensively. They played a little bit harder than we did. But we did stick with it and play better late. I have some talented girls on this team. Maybe a less talented team would have made more mistakes.

“I wasn’t ready for a sub-par performance in terms of energy and effort, but I have a group of good kids. I’m still going to be as happy to coach them tomorrow as I would be any other day.” Senior guard Julie Galauner scored six points and forced three turnovers on a steal and a pair of blocks for the Cogs. Galauner says the Cogs need to put their focus on their defense. “We have to make sure that we put a body on someone,” Galauner said. “We have to box out and go get the ball. There were too many possessions where we left a girl open, she got an offensive rebound and scored. We can’t do that.” The Thunder (2-3) came back from a 6-0 deficit to tie it at 10 in the second quarter. Woodstock North coach Mike Lewis said that it comes down to what

basketball games are ultimately decided by – making shots. “We made a great adjustment and caught up with them,” Lewis said. “We have to come out and make shots. I don’t know if it was the hour and fifteen-minute bus ride that had us starting tight or what, but we ended up down only two possessions late in the fourth. They made a shot and we didn’t. That’s what it came down to.” The Thunder got a huge scoring boost from senior center Madison Butler. Butler scored 16 points and added a couple of blocks as well. Butler said she felt like she started slow, but surged late. “I think I started off a little rough shooting,” Butler said. “I think I ended up getting better coming off of cuts as the game went on. I didn’t try to force it, I let the game come to me.”

Tom Fedderly has seen a lot of great athletes play at Kaneland. That often made it difficult to see his own kids play, but it won’t any longer. Fedderly resigned Wednesday from his position as football coach at Kaneland effective immediately. “It’s a hard thing do, but there’s good and there’s bad,” he said. “I’m really looking forward to seeing my kids play, and all three are still active right now. I didn’t hardly get to see a lot of that and I can’t miss it any longer.” His sophomore daughter Sydney plays volleyball at Kaneland and will look to step up to varsity next season. After solid high school careers, his two oldest children are playing in college. Hollie plays volleyball at nearby Waubonsee Community College, and Connor is a football player at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. “As a dad, I’m really excited about being able to spend time with the kids,” he said. “I’m sure once Fridays come along in the fall, at 7 o’clock, I’ll be thinking about it a bit and I’ll certainly

That Sterling quarterfinal (2006) where we had to come back (and won in double overtime), the Vernon Hills game (playoff win on the road in 2011), which was awesome, and then the two playoffs games against Montini.” When the Northern Illinois Big 12 Conference was formed in 2010, the Knights won their first 13 East Division games, not losing until Sycamore beat them in 2013. He also won 11 of his first 12 games against DeKalb and Sycamore, dating back to when the three teams were in the Western Sun Conference. The search begins for the fourth head coach in the program’s history. Kaneland athletic director Peter Goff could not be reached for comment. “We are thankful for coach Fedderly’s many years of hard work and dedication to Kaneland,” Goff and principal Jill Maras said in a release Wednesday. “We thank Coach Fedderly for his 24 years of service to the football program.”

Week 13 Mid-American Conference football rankings

6 NIU football players 1 make all-MAC teams DAILY CHRONICLE The Northern Illinois football team had six players named to the all-Mid-American Conference postseason teams, the league announced Wednesday. Senior receiver Kenny Golladay, senior kick returner Aregeros Turner and sophomore offensive lineman Max Scharping each were named to the first team, while junior defensive back Shawun Lurry, senior running back Joel Bouagnon and senior offensive lineman Levon Myers were on the second team. “Kenny, Max and Aregeros are very deserving of first-team honors,” Huskies coach Rod Carey said. “Each of them had outstanding individual seasons. Kenny and Aregeros helped lead us through a tough start to the season, as did Joel and Levon and the rest of our senior class.” A transfer from North Dakota, Golladay made a splash in his two years with NIU. He ranks second all-time in most passes caught in a season (87 in 2016) and he’s fifth in career catches (160) and receiving yards (2,285). He became the first Huskie ever with two seasons with 1,000plus receiving yards. Turner, the 2015 MAC Special Teams Player of the Year, led the conference in kick return average (25.8 yards) and had a return for a touchdown to open the game against Buffalo. Western Michigan, which finished the regular season 12-0, collected the Vern Smith Leadership Award (quarterback Zach Terrell), Offensive Player of the Year (receiver Corey Davis), Special Teams Player of the Year (kick returner Darius Phillips) and Coach of the Year (PJ Fleck). Ohio defensive end Tarell Basham won Defensive Player of the Year, and Bobcats safety Javon Hagan won Freshman of the Year. Western Michigan and Ohio face off in the MAC Championship at 6 p.m. Friday at Ford Field in Detroit.

MEN’S BASKETBALL Indiana State pulls away from NIU: The

Sycamores used a strong second half for a 63-52 win over the Huskies. Justin Thomas was the only Huskie in double figures, scoring 14. Marin Maric had a game-high eight rebounds but had two points.

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL NIU falls short at Drake: The Huskies kept up their high-scoring ways, but

scored less than their nation-best 97 points a game in a 95-86 loss. Cassidy Glenn and Courtney Woods each scored 22 for the Huskies. In her first game since recording a triple-double, Ally Lehman had 17 points, nine rebounds and five assists. Glenn had 10 rebounds. Lizzy Wendell led the Bulldogs with 30 points.

GIRLS BOWLING Sycamore holds on to win streak: The

Spartans held on for a 3,055-2,957 win in Rochelle, taking six of the 10 conference points despite losing two of the three games in the match. Freshman Megan Kolberg rolled a career-best 254 as part of a 608 series. Her high mark came in the second game, helping the Spartans to a 1,104-926 victory that was enough to make up for losing Games 1 and 3. “They are an extremely talented team,” said Spartan coach Andy Hampton of Rochelle. “They have a couple of girls that can flat-out roll. Being in their house, and knowing the shot obviously favored them today. We were able to figure just enough out, and a lot of teams are going to have problems matching our depth. We’ll take the win and move on.”

NO. 17 WESTERN MICHIGAN (12-0, 8-0) Last week: Defeated Toledo, 55-35 Well, the Broncos certainly proved it without any doubt: they’re the class of the MAC this season. It’s still amazing they were losing at halftime against Kent State. They shouldn’t have any trouble against Ohio in the MAC Championship, either.


TOLEDO (9-3, 6-2) Last week: Lost to No. 17 Western Michigan, 55-35 The Rockets gave themselves a chance heading into the final week of the season. A win at Western Michigan would have put them in the MAC Championship, but the Broncos were too much.


OHIO (8-4, 6-2) Last week: Beat Akron, 9-3 The Bobcats’ MAC East-clinching win against the Zips was far from pretty, but it was enough to set up a MAC Championship showdown against Western Michigan. The Bobcats played Western Michigan last season, with the Broncos winning, 49-14, in Ohio.


NORTHERN ILLINOIS (5-7, 5-3) Last week: Beat Kent State, 31-21 Before the season started, who would have thought redshirt freshman Daniel Santacaterina would be 2-0 as a starter with two road wins?


VIEWS Jesse Severson It’s hard not to feel like this was a disappointing season for the Chippewas. They had one of the best quarterbacks in the conference in Cooper Rush and couldn’t get into the conversation for a MAC West title.


BALL STATE (4-8, 1-7) Last week: Lost to Miami (Ohio), 21-20 The Cardinals started the season promisingly – a 3-1 record – and ended with a deceptive record. Six of their eight losses came by 10 points or fewer, including four by seven points or less.


AKRON (5-7, 3-5) Last week: lost at Ohio, 9-3 The Zips fell off a cliff at the end of the season. At one point, they were 5-3 overall and needed just one more win to become bowl elgible. However, they didn’t get it and ended the year with four straight losses.


BOWLING GREEN (4-8, 3-5) Last week: Beat Buffalo, 27-19 The Falcons finished the first year under coach Mike Jinks with three straight wins, but they came against Akron (which has a four-game losing streak), Kent State (three-game losing streak) and Buffalo (four-game losing streak).

Royals lost, 62-41, despite nine points each from Seth and Jacob Misukanis. The Royals fell to 1-4 on the season and host Indian Creek in their Little Ten Conference opener at 7:30 p.m. Friday. “This team has a ton of potential, but have a lot of work to do on the fundamental side of the game,” coach Bill Sambrookes said. “We are working hard and soon will see the fruits of that effort.”

The Kougars beat the No. 1-ranked team in NJCAA Division III, 84-79. Bryson Butler led the Kougars with 24 points, and also grabbed seven rebounds, dished out five assists and got five steals in the win.

is the No. 11 seed, but earned the conference crown by beating the Gators in five sets in Columbia late in the year. Crow is a talented transfer from Ole Miss, and Kan has been a standout since coming to Missouri – she was the SEC Freshman of the Year in 2013. The Tigers’ five losses this season came against BYU, Miami (Ohio), Texas A&M, South Carolina and Utah, all of which made the tournament except for the Gamecocks. Purdue Record: 18-13 Big Ten Conference record: 8-12 RPI: 29 Top players: Danielle Cuttino, jr., OH (first-team all-Big Ten); Faye Adelaja, sr., MB (honorable mention all-Big Ten) How they got here: Although the Boilermakers had a losing record in conference, the Big Ten was a brutal road this season. Eight teams from the conference made the NCAA tournament – including five that are in the top 16 seeds. The top three seeds in the tournament came from the Big Ten, with No. 1 Nebraska, No. 2 Minnesota and No. 3

• HUSKIES Wisconsin. Purdue took the Badgers to five sets in both matches this season. Iowa State Record: 18-10 Big 12 Conference record: 10-6 RPI: 27 Top players: Jess Schaben, so., OH (first-team all-Big 12); Grace Lazard, so., MB (second-team all-Big 12); Samara West, jr., MB (second-team all-Big 12) How they got here: The Cyclones finished third in the Big 12, ahead of Kansas State (No. 14 seed), Baylor and TCU – all of which made the NCAA tournament. Their biggest win of the year came in a five-set victory at home over Texas, which is the No. 4 seed in the NCAA tournament. All 10 of their losses on the year came against teams that made the 64team field, so they are plenty battle tested. In a game against in-state foe Iowa, the Cyclones won in straight sets. In the Huskies’ match against the Hawkeyes, NIU lost in straight sets in DeKalb in the third match of the year. – Jesse Severson,

Continued from page 16 However, the Huskies do have a win over an SEC team this season. They swept Tennessee, 25-23, 2522, 25-20, during the tournament in Washington. The Tigers come into the NCAA tournament having swept the Volunteers, 25-15, 26-24, 25-16. While watching the NCAA selection show Sunday, the Huskies dealt with the emotion of not knowing where they would be playing as the bracket was announced. Having to play at Missouri, however, is a 350-plus mile trek that is similar to the travel that comes with a MAC road match. “It was a curveball because there were some teams we thought we might play, and Missouri wasn’t one that we were really thinking about, so it’s exciting to go down there and play,” said senior outside hitter Mary Grace Kelly, who was the MAC tournament MVP. “Especially because it’s nearby, hopefully, we can bring a lot of fans down there.”

CHICAGO – The student hasn’t become the master yet. An All-Star? Yes. An MVP candidate this season? Definitely. But Luol Deng at least has bragging rights over Jimmy Butler for the time being, as Deng’s Los Angeles Lakers beat the Bulls, 96-90, Wednesday night at the United Center, avenging last week’s loss between the teams. Not a loss that sat well with coach Fred Hoiberg. “Disappointing,” coach Fred Hoiberg said. “Lost momentum, lost our pace, lost our flow. I thought they were the more physical team all across the board.’’ But there was an important subplot in the loss. If Dwyane Wade has helped Butler deal with stardom and leadership this season, Deng has to be the one credited for originally even pointing Butler in that direction. Selected in the 2011 draft, Butler was on a team full of championship promise and veteran players. There was very little playing time, and not a lot of teammates interested in grabbing the Marquette product by the hand and showing him the ropes. Deng, who played for the Bulls from

“To me, it was just a guy that outside basketball was a very good kid that I cared about.” Butler entered the game against Deng with back-to-back All-Star seasons under his belt, as well as a 40-point game when the teams last met. Although Butler had his struggles in the Wednesday rematch, he still tried to play hero late, hitting a game-tying 3-pointer with 1:30 left. But Deng and his Lakers would have the final say, as Julius Randle hit the goahead layup, and Butler went ice cold. Three times Butler had looks to get the Bulls (10-7) back in it at the 39-second mark, and three times he missed, finishing the game with 22 points, but also just 4 for 18 from the field. Wade was a game-time decision to play because of a fractured root canal, but scored 17 points in 30 minutes. Deng finished with 10 points. “I’m not surprised with the player Jimmy has become,” Deng said. “I say this: When you come into the NBA, the guys around you really matter, and the system really matters. He learned a lot from that system right away. A solid system from Tom Thibodeau. And he had vets at the time that were just hard workers. “So Jimmy had the talent, but when you adapt that and you think that the league is about hard work, it all becomes second nature.’’

AP source: MLB players, owners have verbal labor deal

IRVING, Texas – Negotiators for baseball players and owners have a verbal agreement on a five-year labor contract, a person familiar with the talks told The Associated Press on Wednesday night. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the sides still were putting the deal in writing. They hoped to have a signed memorandum of understanding later Wednesday. The deal extends the sport’s labor peace to 26 years since 1995 and was reached about 31/2 hours before the expiration of the current collective bargaining agreement. As part of the deal, the luxury tax threshold rises from $189 million to $195 million next year and to $210 million in 2021, the person said. There also will be a new penalty for signing certain free agents who could affect a team’s draft order.

Packers’ Matthews: ‘Cheap shot’ got him hurt vs Eagles

GREEN BAY, Wis. – Clay Matthews didn’t mince words about the play that got him injured against the Eagles. “It was a cheap shot,” Matthews said. Matthews sustained an injured left shoulder on a crunching first-quarter block from Philadelphia lineman Allen Barbre on Monday night Matthews missed three plays and returned, then missed the next series while receiving a pain-killing injection. He returned for the Eagles’ third series and played most of the rest of the game. Matthews recorded a fourth-quarter sack, his first since the fourth game of the season.

on performance. “He’s a guy that we see as our center fielder of the future,” Hoyer said. “And it’s important for him to develop in the big leagues and get a chance to face all kinds of pitchers. But, ultimately, the game does come down to performance, and we’ve given (manager) Joe (Maddon) two really good options in center field.” The implication, of course, is that the Cubs view the already unlikely possibility of Fowler returning as an all but foregone conclusion. Fowler is expected to take advantage of an otherwise weak free-agent market. “We would never close the door on a reunion with Dexter,” Hoyer said of the leadoff man who eschewed a threeyear offer from Baltimore in February to return to the Cubs on a one-year deal. “He’s always welcome here. He’s a guy that’s going to live in Cubs lore for a long time. “We would love to have him back, but we know how the business works, and that’s not something we’d necessarily count on.”




tion, it makes no sense for us to ever eliminate any potential trading partners.” The Cubs have an “imbalance” of position players over pitching in their farm system. But the Cubs figure to focus their efforts on strengthening their pitching depth, both in the rotation and bullpen, outside the city limits. “I don’t think it’s either one side’s stance or the other,” Hoyer said. “I just don’t think you’re ever going to see a lot of deals done between the two sides.” Signing Jay to the one-year, $8 million deal might have cleared the decks for the Cubs to focus solely on pitching the rest of the winter. The deal for the left-handed hitting Jay gives the Cubs a strong defensive center fielder who can help right-handed hitting Albert Almora Jr. transition into the everyday starting role as the Cubs look to repeat in 2017. Hoyer suggested Almora could see the bulk of the playing time, depending

Dexter Fowler? The Cubs don’t expect the center fielder back, but would welcome another late-winter shocker. A trade with the White Sox? That ship appears to have Saled. The day after the Cubs addressed their center field issue by signing freeagent Jon Jay, general manager Jed Hoyer acknowledged – vaguely – a report this week that the Sox won’t do business with the Cubs despite obvious personnel fits. “I think they’d always listen to the merits of a deal. They’re in the business of getting better and in the business of doing the best deal,” Hoyer said during a media conference call Wednesday. “But I don’t think anything that’s been written is the least bit surprising. I don’t expect a lot of deals done between the White Sox and the Cubs. I don’t think I’m saying anything surprising when I say that.” After Hoyer’s comments were published Wednesday, Sox GM Rick Hahn

issued a statement that read, in part: “To clarify any confusion regarding our stance on possible trading partners, we want to once again make it clear that our primary goal is to make our club better. We will consider any trade, with any team, that improves the Chicago White Sox.” With the annual winter meetings looming next week, the Sox are at the epicenter of potential activity as the John Jay seller with the most to offer in game-changing talent, from starting pitchers Chris Sale and Jose Quintana to hitters Jose Abreu and Adam Eaton. “As I have said many times over the years, we are always open to discussing trades with all 29 other clubs,” Hahn continued in the statement. “We even have completed trades within our division, despite facing these teams 19 times a year, and while trades between the Cubs and White Sox will always draw heightened scrutiny and atten-

Directors, stars reveal what they’d buy for a film buff By LINDSEY BAHR and MIKE CIDONI LENNOX The Associated Press


uying that perfect gift for a film buff can be a vexing task, so we went right to the heart of Hollywood to get tips on the creative ways in which some directors and stars might enchant a fellow movie lover this holiday season.

DAMIEN CHAZELLE: The “Whiplash” and “La La Land” director reached back to his own filmmaking roots and recommended a Bolex camera, like the kind he used to make movies on. “To me, that’s about returning to the basics. You just put a camera on your shoulder, you go out on the street, there’s no sound, you just film whatever you see,” Chazelle said. “Yeah, you can do it on your phone now, but I love the analog, I love the old fashioned, rusty old cameras. Maybe no one else does but I’d give them that.” Vintage Bolex cameras can run around $400 on eBay. GUGU MBATHA-RAW: In honor of its 70th anniversary, the “Miss Sloane” star said she’d go with Frank Capra’s “It’s a Wonderful Life.” “For me, for Christmas, that’s just the ultimate to be able to watch that movie. It’s so uplifting. That would be my gift,” she said. “It’s so beautiful, it’s such a classic and as I say, it’s really an inspiring story about family. I think it’s lovely.” The 60th anniversary edition is available on DVD for $17.85. ALDEN EHRENREICH:

He may only be 26 years old, but “Rules Don’t Apply” star Alden Ehrenreich, who has a passion for all things old Hollywood, said he’d buy George Stevens, Jr.’s “Conversations with the Great Moviemakers of Hollywood’s Golden Age “and its companion book “The Next Generation.” “It’s all these filmmakers like

Fred Zinneman and William Wyler and Billy Wilder going to AFI and lecturing to people in the 60s and 70s when they’re at the end of their careers. But the students they’re talking to are these sort of radical hippie young college students so the conversations are really, really interesting,” Ehrenreich said. “It’s insight into the way that people like George Cukor and John Ford work that is more contemporary than you usually get from those guys.” ROBERT ZEMECKIS: “I would definitely get them a library of classic cinema ... anything that the great American directors directed,” said the “Allied” director. Among his favorites are Alfred Hitchcock, John Ford, Frank Capra and Stanley Kubrick. The TCM-curated FilmStruck might not be a bad first stop (from $6.99/month). LILY COLLINS: Collins, who also stars in “Rules Don’t Apply,” said she likes physical gifts that can double as art. “I have a collection

of vintage film cameras and old film strips and old film reels in my apartment and I’ve given them as gifts if I find a really hard to find, rare one,” she said. LUCAS HEDGES: The “Manchester by the Sea” star said he’d gift some of his personal favorites, including Thomas Vinterberg’s “The Celebration,” as well as the John Carney musical “Sing Street” and its retro ’80s soundtrack (available on CD and vinyl). PABLO LARRAIN: It might not be the easiest on the list, but the “Jackie” director said his ideal gift for someone would be to arrange a screening of a silent movie with a full orchestra. “I saw ‘Metropolis’ like that,” he said. “It was awesome.” SIMON HELBERG: Helberg, who co-stars in “Florence Foster Jenkins,” thinks that one can’t go wrong with The Criterion Collection. “I feel like if I could just sit there and clear a few months to watch all of their films, I’d be a much better off, much smarter, much more cultured person,” Helberg said. Criterion Collection films and box sets are available for individual purchase (new releases include Blu-ray editions of “Breathless,” “PunchDrunk Love” and “McCabe & Mrs. Miller”), or to stream on the subscription site FilmStruck (from $10.99 a month).

Holiday baking

24 Daily Chronicle / • Thursday, December 1, 2016

| A&E

The first week in December is Cookie Cutter Week, so pour yourself a big glass of milk and whip up a batch of sugar cookies to cut out and decorate. Perhaps try a few recipes from culinary guru Dorie Greenspan’s latest book, “Dorie’s Cookies.”

All the trimmings

The first weekend in December is a great time to get started decorating your home for the holidays. Need some fresh ideas? Check out Pinterest’s holiday decorating boards for inspiration.



At the movies

Too cold outside? Head to the movies. If you would rather see a horror film than a traditional holiday movie, “Incarnate,” rated PG-13, is in theaters, and there’s still time to take the kids to see Disney’s latest, “Moana.” Or go to your local library and check out a few holiday books and DVDs.

The Kishwaukee Symphony Orchestra, now celebrating its 40th season, plans to delight concertgoers once again with its annual Holiday Pops concert at 7 p.m. Dec. 9, at the Boutell Memorial Concert Hall in the Music Building at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb. The KSO will be joined by the Celebration Chorale, directed by Christine Monteiro, who also is a member of the orchestra. The orchestra will play music of the holiday season, including contemporary and familiar traditional music and a singalong of holiday favorites, including the “Hallelujah Chorus” from “The Messiah” by George Frideric Handel. Conductor Linc Smelser will invite children from the audience on stage for an interactive performance of Haydn’s “Toy Symphony,” making this concert a perfect introduction to live

orchestral music. Pre-concert music will be provided by the NIU Suzuki Strings Program, directed by Ann Montzka Smelser, intermission music will be provided by the DeKalb High School Madrigals, and post-concert music will be provided by the Kishwaukee Symphony Orchestra Brass Quintet. Refreshments will be served afterwards. This concert is supported in part by the George E. and Betty B. Dutton Foundation. Changes in programs, dates, times and location of concerts will be posted on the website. Tickets go on sale 30 minutes prior to each concert. All seats are general admission. Individual ticket prices are $16 for adults, $11 for seniors 62 and older, $6 for students with a valid school ID card, and $6 for children younger than 12.

Parents worried about baby’s sleep position

is an important part of his development, and he should be allowed to do so. You should continue to place him on his back when you put him down to sleep, but according to guidelines published by the National Institutes of Health, you don’t need to return him to his back when he turns over. At that point, it’s OK to let your baby choose his sleep position. You also should: • Be sure to use a firm mattress with a fitted sheet. • Keep his crib clear of soft objects such as pillows, stuffed toys, crib bumpers or loose bedding. • Overheating may play a role in SIDS, so keep his room at a comfortable temperature and don’t overdress him for bed. He might be too warm if his chest feels hot or if he is sweating. • Don’t cover him with loose bedding such as a blanket, quilt or sheet, as he may get tangled up. • Do keep your baby close by in your room, but don’t sleep with him in your bed. The risk of accidentally rolling over on the baby or of him falling out of the bed is too great. Follow these simple precautions to give your baby the safest sleep environment. And congratulations on your son’s milestone of turning over by himself. • Eve Glazier, M.D., MBA, is an internist and assistant professor of medicine at UCLA Health. Elizabeth Ko, M.D., is an internist and primary care physician at UCLA Health.

ASK THE DOCTORS Elizabeth Ko and Eve Glazier


FUN & GAMES | Daily Chronicle /

Dear Readers: Welcome to the launch of a new column – “Ask the Doctors.” Together with a colleague, we take over for “Ask Doctor K,” in which Dr. Anthony Komaroff dispensed advice and guidance to readers. We plan to continue in this same tradition by offering answers to your questions about health and wellness. “We” are Dr. Eve Glazier and Dr. Elizabeth Ko, internists and primary care physicians at UCLA Health. Our specialty is internal medicine, with a focus on the management and prevention of chronic disease. We share this column on alternating days with our colleague, Dr. Robert Ashley, whose introduction will be published tomorrow. Amid a flood of information – and misinformation – available these days, our goal is to provide not just facts and statistics but also context and nuance. We want to give you the tools you need for a healthy and happy life. We are firm believers that knowledge can help you to take control of your health and well-being. Dear Doctors: We always have been careful to put our son to sleep on his back to prevent SIDS, but he recently has started turning over by himself, and we find him on his stomach. Should we prevent this? Should we put him on his back again? Dear Reader: You’re right that placing infants on their backs to sleep greatly reduces the rate of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), the leading cause of death in infants between 1 month and 1 year old. About 1,500 infants die of SIDS each year in the United States, with most of the cases occurring in babies younger than 6 months old. The good news is once your baby is able to turn over by himself, which happens at about 6 months, his brain is developed enough to alert him to breathing problems. Rolling over

• Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.


DEAR ABBY wife and I have been married for Jeanne almost 11 years Phillips and have three children. About four years ago, my wife cheated on me and left. After a six-week split, we decided we wanted to work things out. Everything was great – until recently, when she got a job working at a gym. Several of the guys from the gym have added her on Facebook and send her messages. They like all her posts and pictures. I work out there, and when I go in, I see her laughing and joking with them. This all has started to bring me flashbacks to when she cheated. I tried talking to her about how I feel, but she just says they are my insecurity issues and I need to deal with them. At this point, I’m contemplating divorce so I won’t go through the same pain I went through last time. I check her Facebook page constantly to see if she has added any new guys and see what comments they are leaving. I know it’s not healthy, and it makes me constantly depressed. My wife has no interest in marriage counseling, but tells me I should seek professional help for my issues. Is there any saving this marriage, or is it time to move on? – Threatened In Texas Dear Threatened: Part of your wife’s job is to be friendly to the members of that gym. It doesn’t mean she’s involved with any of them outside of work. The problem with jealousy and insecurity is unless they are managed, they tend to feed on each other and grow. While I can’t banish the suspicions from your mind, some sessions with a licensed mental health professional might help you to put them into perspective. However, if it doesn’t ease your mind, you always can talk to a lawyer. Dear Abby: I take a maintenance pain pill for arthritis. I count them every other day to make sure I’m not taking too many. My daughter has been coming to my house a lot lately, and – not every time, but off and on – I’ll count my pills after she leaves, and my count doesn’t match the one from the day before. Sometimes I’m missing almost all of them, but when I ask my daughter if she took them, she always says she didn’t. If I ask nicely, “Are you sure?” she accuses me of calling her a liar. I know she’s taking them, but I don’t know what to do about her lying to me about it. I really need the pills for myself. The doctor prescribes them only once a month, and I know I’m going to run out. What should I do? I don’t want to hurt my daughter’s feelings, but she needs to stop taking my pills. – In Pain In Kansas Dear In Pain: Your daughter may have become addicted to your pain medication or be selling them to people who are. It’s time to start keeping your pills under lock and key. Once you do, your daughter may be forced to come clean about the lying – or you may find you’re seeing a lot less of her than you currently do.
