Don’t retire these Christmas classics POLL YESTERDAY’S RESULTS Crabby Editor Eric Olson used this space Monday to bemoan all of the Christmas songs he wishes would just go away – holiday tunes he claims should be retired for good. In his column, Olson compiled a list of seven Christmas songs of shame (it actually was more than seven – No. 5 was Mannheim Steamroller’s entire catalogue). Since I’m feeling a little more festive than Olson, I decided to put together my own short list, this one of seasonal songs that I and my family especially enjoy (although we wouldn’t necessarily agree on all of them). Here they are, in no particular order: • “Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy” – Bing Crosby’s and David Bowie’s beautiful duet was recorded in 1977 for a Christmas special, “Bing Crosby’s Merrie Olde Christmas.” The “Peace on Earth” lyrics and melody were written specifically for this version because Bowie reportedly did not want to sing “Little Drummer Boy.” Crosby died just five weeks later, but this masterpiece lives on. • “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” – Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band performed their rocking version of this Christmas classic in 1975, and it has become a staple ever since. The late Clarence Clemons, aka The Big Man, belts out the memorable


FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK Dan McCaleb “You better be good for goodness sake” lyric in his deep, bass voice. • “Carol of the Bells” – There are dozens of worthy versions of this classic, but I’ll pitch George Winston’s take from his solo piano album “December.” You just can’t go wrong with this song. • “Sleigh Ride” – Another classic with many great versions, but my wife prefers the instrumental one where coconuts are used to duplicate the sound of horses prancing. • “Wonderful Christmastime” – Paul McCartney wrote this song in 1979, and although it’s not the former Beatles member’s best composition, it is my son’s Christmas favorite and worthy of inclusion here. So that’s my list. How about you? Email me your favorites and why, and I’ll consider your responses for a future column.

‘Miss Beth’ to pass on ‘Nutcracker’ role after this year’s performance By AIMEE BARROWS DeKALB – The Beth Fowler Dance Company and School of Dance has been performing the holiday classic ballet “The Nutcracker” at DeKalb’s Egyptian Theatre for 23 years, but this year’s shows will be bittersweet for founder Beth Fowler. Bitter because this is the last year time Fowler, 48, will play the Arabian Queen, a role she’s performed every year for more than two decades, but sweet because she’s passing it down to her daughter, Brooke Fowler, who is a teacher at the school. “It was a very difficult and emotional decision and it’s hard to know when the right time is to give it up,” Beth said. “But I love the idea of passing it to Brooke because she has similar strengths as me as a dancer. It makes sense because she shares the love and passion for this role and it’s a great way for her to inspire her students.” Beth decided to stop dancing in the production because she is also the artistic director, which means she’s responsible for the almost 400 dancers involved in the show. She said performing in the show while also directing added a great deal of pressure, and she felt now was a good time to hand over the coveted role to her daughter. “It’s hard to make sure you’re prepared to perform at the highest level, and my standard is very high. There’s a lot of work that goes into preparing,” she said. “I always felt like I needed to dance this role as an inspiration to my students. But now I realize I can inspire them in so many other ways on a daily basis as opposed to a yearly basis in the show. I can still be me, still be a teacher and a dancer without doing ‘The Nutcracker.’ Now I can focus more on the kids.” Brooke Fowler, 21, was surprised when her mother approached her about taking over the role. She said that she is honored to be chosen, and excited about taking it on next year. “My mom has done it for so long, and I’ve always watched her do it and looked up to her so much as a dancer,” she said. “This is a big deal for her to give it up because everyone at the school knows this is her role. ‘Miss Beth’ is the Arabian Queen.”

If you go n WHAT: “The Nutcracker” n WHEN: 7 p.m today and Saturday; 2 p.m. Sunday n WHERE: Egyptian Theatre, 135 N. Second St., DeKalb n TICKETS: Visit or The Arabian Queen is one of many solo dance roles in the holiday ballet, which tells the fictional story of a young girl named Clara, who helps the Nutcracker Prince battle the Rat King before embarking on a magical journey to the Land of the Sweets. While the story is wellknown around the world, Beth Fowler said her company’s family-friendly version is slightly different than most. “Every production does the ending a little differently, and people

have said our ending gives them chills,” she explained. “It’s a magical performance. The audience will feel that they’ve just been a part of something special. And everyone knows the music, too, because it’s everywhere during the holidays.” Dancers as young as 3 are involved in the production, which Beth Fowler said is on par with any “Nutcracker” production in Chicago. She said that the ballet, which features many dancers from DeKalb County, has become a holiday tradition for families. “This is a good way to get into the Christmas spirit every year. It’s fun to do with kids because live theater is such a magical experience,” said Fowler, a Genoa resident. “People tell me they no longer have to go to the city to see the show because they can see a performance that’s just as good right here.” Fowler, who opened up her

dance school in Genoa at age 15 and later added a second location in St. Charles, said the most special part of “The Nutcracker” for her is watching her dancers as they progress and move up to larger roles each year. “The kids have a different role in the show each year, and it’s so rewarding for me to see them grow. I also like to see families come together and feel the magic of Christmas,” she said. Tickets are available for this weekend’s performances of “The Nutcracker” and can be purchased on the school’s website or the Egyptian Theatre’s website. Included in the price of a children’s ticket is an after-show meetand-greet with Clara, the Sugar Plum Fairy and friends. The show travels to St. Charles next weekend, with shows at 7 p.m. Dec. 10 and at 2 p.m. Dec. 11 at St. Charles North High School auditorium.

Santa Claus arrives in DeKalb By KEITH HERNANDEZ The world’s busiest man left no wish unheard Thursday in DeKalb after fine tuning verbal agreements with hundreds of youngsters in preparation for his busiest day. Santa Claus – also known under the aliases Kris Kringle and Saint Nick – was greeted by a crowd of children eager to file reimbursement requests for good behavior. His arrival prompted a multiagency escort organized by the DeKalb Chamber of Commerce and a formal welcome by DeKalb Mayer John Rey. “It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas,” Rey said. Santa’s “elves are up at the North Pole working on toys and presents for all the boys and girls.” Children such as 10-year-old Lilly Roach had their mental lists ready in preparation for the oneon-one meetings guaranteed to them by the jolly man himself. Lilly said she was going to cash in her good behavior points for a phone case and leotards for gymnastics. Her brother, William, said he wanted dinosaurs, a yo-yo and a talking garbage truck. Upon his arrival, Santa shook

hands, handed out hugs and met every smile with one of his own, a fact not lost upon those who waited in the drizzly 35 degree weather. “He’s always so happy,” Lilly said. The interchanges took place in a cottage in the Van Buer Plaza across from the Egyptian Theatre, where families listened to caroling by the DeKalb High School Madrigals earlier in the evening. Santa took care to debrief the children before their meetings. “When you come in, you better have your list ready for me … but everybody remember, you’ve got to be good,” Santa said. “That’s the golden rule.” Some requests were more reasonable than others. “I want all the toys,” said 5-year-old Marcos Hernandez-Nolan. Meanwhile, 9-year-old Mia Sidal said she was going to ask for a guinea pig. “They’re cute and fluffy,” Mia said. Santa will continue to visit DeKalb while touring the world and taking requests from well-behaved children. He will be in town Keith Hernandez for Shaw Media from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. every SaturRose Paris asks Santa for Chubby Puppies, a line of self-walking dog figures, Thursday in Sanday before Christmas Eve at his ta’s DeKalb cottage. cottage in Van Buer Plaza.

G-K students develop business ideas in entrepreneurship class By STEPHANIE MARKHAM

Sam Buckner for Shaw Media

Genoa-Kingston High School students get feedback on their business ideas Thursday from local businessmen James Wilson (left) and Steve Goodwill.

GENOA – Students at Genoa-Kingston High School are becoming entrepreneurs through a new program that has seniors such as Rachel Hughes realizing how much work goes into starting up a business. Hughes and four of her classmates are working to design a space efficient, indoor gardening shelf with help from mentors at DeKalb County Community Gardens. “We threw around a lot of ideas, and a lot of them had so many solutions out there already; they had so many ways that people have already tried to solve that issue,” she said. “This one, there was more of a hole in the market. There were less products, and nothing like the ones that we were coming up with.”

As part of INCubator Edu, a national entrepreneurship curriculum program the school adopted this year, students brainstorm and conduct market research on their own business ideas. They also meet with local business professionals who offer expertise throughout the development process. “At the very end of the semester, the goal is to have all of our groups prepared to do a 15- to 20-minute pitch to investors, who may potentially ask students if they can invest in their product idea,” said Ben Owen, a business and technology teacher. “It’s real life business startup from start to finish.” Matthew Krueger, owner of Krueger & Associates Tax and Business Advisory Inc. in Hampshire, mentors a group of students on their idea for a travel pillow that sticks to windows with suction cups called a Snoozzzie.

Continued from page 4 Krueger said he and and his wife developed BabyBouncy kits, which consist of an exercise ball, pump and stand designed to help mothers bounce their babies to sleep, which they sold to about 10 years ago. He said he might have found the confidence to try entrepreneurship sooner in life if he had a classroom experience similar to what is offered through INCubator Edu. “Being an entrepreneur is one of the hardest things that I’ve ever had to do in my life, but it also can be the most rewarding,” he said. “We made sure we explained that to the kids. This is not for the faint of heart, and you have to be willing to take a lot of constructive criticism. Sometimes that’s hard to do, but it only makes you better.”

Hughes said she never thought about the potential to start her own business before taking the entrepreneurship class, and she has come to realize it would not be her choice for a career path. “Not that I wouldn’t want to run with this idea, because I really like it,” she said. “But now I know that it’s a lot of work; it’s a lot of risk, and it’s something that I just don’t see myself doing as a profession.” Business teacher Kyle Henkel said the class is not just geared toward students who want to be entrepreneurs. “For those who don’t want to go that route, we want those kids to take away the ability to more efficiently problem-solve,” Henkel said. “Through that hands-on application, and sometimes failure, they’re learning how to problem-solve, which they’re going to take with them and use no matter what path they choose to take post-graduation.”

The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD – Illinois Democrats failed Thursday to override the Republican governor’s veto of $215 million to help the financially struggling Chicago Public Schools with pension payments as negotiations on an overdue state budget broke down again. Using its Democratic supermajority, the Senate quickly voted to overturn Gov. Bruce Rauner’s move, but the House adjourned for the year Thursday evening without bringing the override question for a vote. Although the House has 15 days to try again, it’s unclear if there is enough support in the chamber. Losing the money would be a huge blow to the finances at CPS, which crafted the current year’s budget expecting the funds. Without state support, officials at the nation’s third-largest school district have warned of budget cuts and in the past they’ve said that could include layoffs. The veto was the latest budgetary battle between Democratic legislative leaders and the former venture capitalist, who has tried since taking office to change Illinois’ political system by weakening unions and making the state friendlier to businesses.

Illinois Legislature OKs Exelon subsidy plan

SPRINGFIELD – A plan to keep two nuclear power plants operating and save thousands of Illinois jobs is on its way to Gov. Bruce Rauner. The Senate voted, 32-18, to approve the plan Thursday night just an hour after it got House approval, 63-38. The measure provides $235 million a year to Exelon Corp. for 13 years. Exelon counts it as a subsidy for nuclear power producing no gases harmful to the atmosphere. It allows unprofitable nuclear plants in Clinton and the Quad Cities to stay open. Proponents said it will cost electricity ratepayers less than 25 cents a month and provide hundreds of millions of dollars in energy-efficiency programs.

Lawmakers, lobbyists and visitors stand along the “Brass Rail” outside the House chambers during the veto session Thursday at the Illinois State Capitol in Springfield. Rauner wants Democrats to help him enact part of his agenda, but neither side has budged and that has left Illinois without a budget for 18 months – the longest any state has gone since at least World War II. The gridlock has crippled social service programs and left higher education institutions facing

financial uncertainty because of less state support than they’ve received in the past. The parties had agreed to the Chicago Public Schools funding in June as part of a six-month spending plan to get the state through the end of the year. But the money promised came with the

AFSCME files lawsuit to stop Rauner contract terms

SPRINGFIELD – Illinois’ major public-employee union has filed a lawsuit to stop Gov. Bruce Rauner from imposing contract terms because negotiations have been declared hopelessly deadlocked. The action is likely only temporary, however. The state council of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees went to labor-friendly St. Clair County on Wednesday. It’s asking a judge to bar Republican Rauner from taking action to implement the contract. A state labor board ruled this month that talks are officially at “impasse.” That means the governor can impose whatever contract conditions he chooses. The union can accept or strike. But the complaint argues impasse isn’t official until issued in writing, which


Illinois shutters nation’s last prison roundhouse

CREST HILL – Illinois has shuttered the nation’s last prison roundhouse, a circular lockup with a guard tower in the middle that critics said created an especially harsh environment for inmates. The state Department of Corrections began transferring the last prisoners from the maximum-security F House at Stateville to other locations on Oct. 26, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. The last 36 inmates were moved out Wednesday. Closing the unit, which was built in 1922, will allow the department to divert $10.3 million in maintenance costs into other housing units and programs, officials said. The John Howard Association, a prison

Democratic Senate President John Cullerton denied Thursday there had been such a deal. Immediately afterward, Rauner vetoed the funding. “Breaking our agreement undermines our effort to end the budget impasse and enact reforms with bipartisan support,” Rauner said in his veto message to lawmakers. Chicago Public Schools has a “junk” status from credit agencies and narrowly averted a teachers strike in October. Leaders of the 400,000-student district built the $5.4 billion budget expecting the $215 million to pay the employer’s contribution to teachers’ pensions. The payment is due in June. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel accused Rauner of “lashing out,” calling the veto “reckless and irresponsible.” For months, Chicago Public Schools CEO Forrest Claypool, whom Emanuel appointed, said the aid was necessary to avoid cuts. He said Thursday that school officials and allies would fight the veto and floated the possibility of a civil rights lawsuit over unfair funding practices. Most students in the largely black and Hispanic school district are low-income.

Bloody month in Chicago brings death toll past 700

CHICAGO – Chicago experienced more than twice as many homicides in November as it did during the same month in 2015, and more than any November in nearly a quarter century, according to police statistics released Thursday. The 77 homicides recorded last month bring the city’s 2016 total to 701, with a month to go until year’s end. It is the first time Chicago has eclipsed the 700 mark in a year since 1998, and puts the city on a pace to end 2016 with nearly 300 more homicides than were recorded last year. Police, law enforcement officials and community members said the reasons start with criminals in Chicago that are more emboldened than they have been in years

NATION & WORLD BRIEFS Sheriff: Suspect in credit union incident charged

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – After an armed robbery suspect put a gun to the back of one hostage’s head, SWAT team members resolved at the first chance they had Thursday to storm a north Florida credit union where nearly a dozen people were being held, authorities say. That moment came, they say, when two people hiding inside the Jacksonville building, unbeknown to the suspect, made a run for it, distracting the man. SWAT team members stormed the credit union and put themselves between the gunman and the 11 hostages, ending a two-hour standoff, Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said. The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office identified the suspect on social media as 23-year-old Nicholas Daquan Humphrey, of Tampa. He was charged Thursday evening with one count of armed robbery and 13 counts of kidnapping. Jail records didn’t list an attorney for Humphrey.

Group criticizes vets joining pipeline protest

FARGO, N.D. – Some military veterans in North Dakota disagree with the 2,000 veterans planning to join a protest opposing the four-state, $3.8 billion Dakota Access pipeline. The North Dakota Veterans Coordinating Council has sent

a letter to the “Veterans Stand for Standing Rock” group asking them not go to the southern part of the state where hundreds are camped out because it’ll create more tension and increase the burden on law enforcement, council president Russ Stabler said Thursday. The council doesn’t have an opinion about the pipeline, which is mostly complete aside from a portion on federal land under a Missouri River reservoir that’s been held up, and supports anyone who wants to protest peacefully. But, he said, the demonstrations have not been conducted in “the military manner in which our veterans behave.”

French president rules out 2017 run

PARIS – France’s President Francois Hollande announced in a surprise televised address Thursday that he would not seek a second term in next year’s presidential election, acknowledging that his personal unpopularity might cost his Socialist party the Elysee. “I have decided not to be a candidate in the presidential election,” Hollande said in the prime time slot, adding that he hoped by stepping aside to give the Socialists a chance to win “against conservatism and, worse still, extremism.”

Trump salutes Carrier for saving jobs in Ind. By JONATHAN LEMIRE The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS – Donald Trump saluted workers, owners and himself Thursday at a Carrier plant in Indiana, declaring that a deal to keep a local plant open instead of moving operations to Mexico was only the first of many business victories to come in the U.S. with him as president. Trump’s stop at the heating and air conditioning giant’s plant, his first major public appearance since the election more than two weeks ago, marked the opening of a victory tour to states that helped him win. He was appearing at a big rally in Cincinnati on Thursday night. His speaking style, while calmer than on the campaign trail, was similar to the seemingly stream-of-conscious efforts of the past year. While focusing on the hundreds of jobs he said he had saved from moving to Mexico, he also found time to talk about his Hoosier state primary performance, former Indiana University basketball coach Bob Knight and the wall he has promised to build along the U.S.-Mexico border. Some questions remain about the extent of the victory at Carrier, which announced this week that it will keep an Indianapolis plant open. In February, the heating and air conditioning company said that it would shut the plant and send jobs to Mexico, and video of angry workers being informed about the decision soon went viral. “We’re going to build the wall,” Trump said, repeating his vow to construct an impenetrable southern border. “Trust me: We’re going to build that wall.” In other recent remarks, he has suggested that he might actually go for a fence along some portions of the border.

President-elect Donald Trump greets workers Thursday after speaking at Carrier Corp. in Indianapolis. “The Rust Belt is so incredible but we’re losing companies, it’s unbelievable. Just one after the other,” Trump said to workers at the Indianapolis plant. “Companies are not going to leave the United States anymore without consequences. It’s not going to happen. It’s simply not going to happen.” During the campaign, he had often pointed to the Indiana plant’s moving plans and a major result of poor Obama administration policies, and he pledged to revive U.S. manufacturing. Officials said this week that Carrier had agreed to keep some 800 union jobs at the plant but Trump suggested Thursday that it could exceed 1,100. A call to a Carrier spokesman to clarify was not immediately returned. Earlier Thursday, Seth Martin, a spokesman for Carrier, said that Indiana offered the air conditioning and furnace manufacturer $7 million in tax incentives after negotiations with Trump’s team to keep some jobs in the state. Chuck Jones, the head of the USW Local 1999 union that represents the workers, said the additional jobs in Trump’s count were previously set to

be saved. The company’s decision is something of a reversal, since earlier offers from the state had failed to sway Carrier. Trump said he personally called Greg Hayes, the CEO of United Technologies, Carrier’s parent, to seal the deal, jokingly asking Hayes, “If I lost would you have picked up the phone?” The president-elect threatened during the campaign to impose sharp tariffs on any company that shifted its factories to Mexico. And his advisers have promoted lower corporate tax rates as a means of keeping jobs in the U.S. Trump repeated both ideas on Thursday. He toured the factory with his running mate Mike Pence – who, as the outgoing governor of Indiana, was well-situated to aid negotiations – and shook hands with several workers whose jobs would be preserved. Trump pointed to one and yelled at reporters “He’s going to have a good Christmas.” Although hundreds may keep their jobs, others apparently will not, since about 1,400 workers were slated to be laid off – and many workers have not yet been told their fate.

GATLINBURG, Tenn. – Crews discovered the remains of three more people as they searched the rubble of wildfires that torched hundreds of homes and businesses near the Great Smoky Mountains, bringing the death toll to 11, officials said Thursday. Authorities set up a hotline for people to report missing friends and relatives, and after following up on dozens of leads, they said many of those people had been accounted for. They did not say whether they believe anyone else is still missing or might have died. “I think it’s fair to say that the search is winding down,” Sevier County Mayor Larry Waters said. “And hopefully we will not find any more.” He said the searches would likely be completed Friday. Nearly 24 hours of rain on Wednesday helped dampen the wildfires, but fire officials struck a cautious tone, saying people shouldn’t have a false sense of security because months of drought have left the ground bone-dry and wildfires can rekindle. The trouble began Monday when a wildfire, likely caused by a person, spread from the Great Smoky Moun-

tourist city has been shuttered ever since. At least 700 buildings in the county have been damaged. “Gatlinburg is the people, that’s what Gatlinburg is. It’s not the buildings, it’s not the stuff in the buildings,” Mayor Mike Werner said. “We’re gonna be back better than ever. Just be patient.” Starting Friday, homeowners, business owners, renters and lease holders will be allowed to go see most of their Gatlinburg properties, said City Manager Cindy Cameron Ogle. The city is hoping to open main roads to the general public on Wednesday. There were other signs of recovery. Waters declared that Sevier County was “open for business.” In nearby Pigeon Forge, the Comedy House rented an electronic billboard message that said it was open for laughs, and a flyer at a hotel urged guests to check out the scenic Cades Cove loop. “Take a drive and remember what you love about the Smokies!” the flyer said. Great Smoky Mountains National Park Superintendent Cassius Cash has said the fires were “likely to be human-caused” but he has refused to elaborate, saying only that the investigation continues.

Amending the amendment? Imagine you live in a place that passed an amendment to its state constitution, and 10 days after the election, no one is really sure what effect the amendment will have. It couldn’t happen. It’s irrational. But, what can we say? It’s Illinois. The recently passed Illinois Transportation Taxes and Fees Lockbox Amendment received an overwhelming 79 percent of the vote. It required 60 percent for passage. And, on the surface, the amendment sounded like a good thing – all tax monies raised for transportation have to be spent for transportation. The funds cannot be swept by unscrupulous politicians to be used for other purposes. At first glance, it sounds like a no-brainer. That is, until you start peeling back the onion. And, you don’t have to go down many layers until your eyes start burning. As it turns out, the amendment could have a devastating effect on the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. The amendment states that no monies derived from taxes, fees, excises or license taxes can be expended for anything other than costs of construction, reconstruction, maintenance repair and betterment of public highways, roads, streets, bridges, airports or anything relating to transportation. Again, on its face, this sounds reasonable. The devil, as always, is in the details. The IDNR is an agency that is still woefully understaffed. State parks are up to their picnic tables in debt. The one thing keeping IDNR afloat is the Sustainability Bill passed in 2012. The bill provided for a $2 surcharge on each license plate sold in Illinois. The money was earmarked for operation and maintenance of state parks. The Sustainability Bill nets about $20 million each year for the IDNR. Which brings us to an uncomfortable chicken and egg situation: Does the Lockbox Amendment trump the Sustainability Bill? Is the Sustainability Bill nullified? Can the money generated by the Sustainability Bill only be used for road projects within state parks? No one seems to know. Ask legislators about it and they stammer uncomfortably. Ask the IDNR about it and you get a pat answer: “Our official position is we are reviewing potential impacts on DNR budget,” said IDNR spokesperson Tim Schweizer. What’s more, no one seems to have an idea when answers will be forthcoming. Perhaps in 2018 we’ll be voting on amending the amendment.

Tweets vs. the U.S. Constitution

It’s not easy to run afoul of two constitutional amendments in 140 characters. Whether he realizes it or, more likely, not, President-elect Donald Trump did so in this Twitter outburst Tuesday: “Nobody should be allowed to burn the American flag – if they do, there must be consequences – perhaps loss of citizenship or year in jail!” The Supreme Court ruled in 1989 that the First Amendment protects burning the flag in protest. The high court ruled in 1967 that the 14th Amendment not only grants U.S. citizenship to “all persons born or naturalized” in this country; it also forbids the government from taking citizenship away from them. In effect, then, Trump is proposing two constitutional changes – both of which provide further evidence of his tendency to address differences and disagreements within American society by suggesting new limits on their expression, or by excluding people from the American community altogether. We have seen

this tendency at work in his call to “open up” libel laws – i.e., make it easier for public figures such as himself to sue when newspapers criticize them – and in his floating a religious test for entrants from abroad. On flag-burning, his view is no doubt popular: Forty-eight states and Congress outlawed it before the Supreme Court ruled in 1989; subsequent Congresses voted repeatedly to reinstate such a rule in various ways, albeit not by the two-thirds of both houses necessary to send a constitutional amendment to the states. Nor does the political right have a monopoly on burn-banning. Justice John Paul Stevens, one of recent history’s most eloquent judicial progressives, dissented, passionately, in the flag-burning case. In 2005, none other than Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., co-sponsored (unsuccessfully) a bill to bar flag-burning when intended to “incite violence.” Burning-banners’ arguments ultimately founder on the rock of

the First Amendment, which, if it means anything, means that the people have the right to express their views through the widest possible range of nonviolent means. It is ironic that a man elected on a platform of opposition to hypersensitive “political correctness” would embrace a flag-burning ban. Another irony: Among those who understood the democratic necessity of protecting even the most unpopular expression was Justice Antonin Scalia, whom Trump purports to admire, and whose successor he will soon nominate. Many fellow conservatives disliked it, but Scalia often cited his vote to protect flag-burning as an example of how the Constitution limited his power, and that of all other government officials, to stamp out ideas they personally despised. It would be President Trump’s prerogative to urge Congress, and the states, to rewrite the First Amendment along more repressive lines. Like Scalia, we prefer the original.

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.

Americans don’t sleep enough, and it’s costing us $411B Myriad business executives and heads of state have said they get by on little to no sleep. President Barack Obama told Vanity Fair in 2012 that he didn’t shut off the lights at the White House until 1 a.m. and rose each morning before 6. Internet pioneer Vint Cerf made his thoughts on the topic clear: “Sleep is a waste of time.” And President-elect Donald Trump, who wrote in his 2004 book “Think Like a Billionaire” that he sleeps only about four hours a night, recommended “don’t sleep any more than you have to.” Such messages are not supported by substantial research that documents the health dangers of sleep deprivation. Our latest research – “Why Sleep Matters: Quantifying the Economic Costs of Insufficient Sleep” – goes a step further and puts a price tag on sleeplessness around the world. Lack of sleep exacts an economic toll of more than half a trillion dollars a year in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany and Japan alone. The lack of sleep in these countries and across the globe affects work, business and, as a result, the world’s economy. Using a large employer-employee dataset and data on sleep duration from the five countries, we were able to

VIEWS Marco Hafner and Wendy Troxel quantify the predicted economic effects from lack of sleep. Out of the five countries, Japan had the largest GDP loss as a result of lack of sleep (2.92 percent), closely followed by the U.S. (2.28 percent) and the United Kingdom (1.86 percent). Canada and Germany had the smallest GDP loss as a result of lack of sleep (1.35 and 1.56 percent, respectively). While these percentage figures may seem small, they equate to net losses of hundreds of billions of dollar a year, $411 billion a year from the U.S. economy alone. These costs are primarily the result of productivity losses, an estimated 1.23 million missed working days a year from the U.S. workforce (a lack of proper sleep can weaken the immune system, increase the risk for infectious illness, and cause fatigue and depression, all of which can lead to absentee-

ism), and a 10 percent increased risk of mortality (which also cuts down on the workforce prematurely) as a result of lost sleep. The results also were massive in the other countries evaluated. Japan loses as much as $138 billion and 604,000 working days a year and the United Kingdom loses $50 billion and 207,000 working days a year. Even Germany, known for its efficiency and high levels of productivity, loses as much as $60 billion and 209,000 working days a year. Meanwhile, Canada’s losses, despite being smaller, still are significant: as much as $21.4 billion and 78,000 working days a year. While the results highlight that sleep deprivation is a global issue, they also suggest that improving sleep habits and duration can have big implications, not only for an individual’s health and well-being but also for the global economy. Our research has shown that simple changes to sleep duration can make a big difference. For example, if Americans who sleep fewer than six hours a night increase their nightly sleep to between six and seven hours a night, this could add $226.4 billion to the U.S. economy. There are certainly many in business and government who say they

can get by on just a few hours of sleep a night without it affecting their health or their work, but they are not representative of the general population. Putting a dollar figure on sleeplessness might open some eyes among the sleep-challenged in boardrooms and government offices. Some major employers are already beginning to highlight sleep – Aetna has a sleep incentive program for its employees, and the U.S. Army has developed the Performance Triad, which puts sleep on par with diet and physical fitness as the pillars of soldier performance. Sleep and sleep loss are often considered to be among the most intimate of personal behaviors, but sleep matters to all aspects of society, from an individual’s health to the success of the global economy. Changing your sleeping habits and duration may not only make you healthier and more productive, it also could contribute to an increase in the world’s bottom line. • Marco Hafner is a research leader and senior economist at RAND Europe.

The day before Thanksgiving, I woke up at 5 and bolted out of bed to get a head start on a day full of preparations. That plan derailed in the time it took me to turn on the shower and brush my hair before sticking my hand under the running water. Ice-cold. “Oh, no,” I said. “No, no, no.” Immediately, our dog, Franklin, was at my side, his tail slapping my calf in solidarity. Adventure was ours. We ran down two flights of stairs to the basement, where I watched in horror as he started splashing around in the pool of gurgling water. Each time I yelled Franklin’s name, he ran over to me and licked my hand dangling at my side: “No kidding, Mom. This stinks. But: Water!” I slid out of my slippers and went into the rising tide, wading to the water heater. It also was cold to the touch. My husband said there’s nothing quite like awakening to the sound of his wife’s curdling wail from the bowels of our home. Being a morning person – this time, I note that with admiration – he immediately volunteered to soak up the water with virtually every bath towel in the house. I shut off the water valves and made the emergency call to

St. Paul’s to host Blue Christmas service DAILY CHRONICLE The holiday season is often called “the most wonderful time of the year.” Yet for many people, the holiday season is a difficult time, marked by stress and loneliness. Broken relationships, ill health, unemployment, the loss of a loved one – all of these can leave people feeling “blue” in the midst of the society around us that seems focused on being happy and celebrating. It is at such times that it is helpful to acknowledge our sadness and concern and know that we are not alone. St. Paul’s Episcopal Church

invites the public to attend a Blue Christmas gathering at 7 p.m. Wednesday. The service will include prayers, scripture and music that focus on the hope and healing that God offers each one of us. There will be an opportunity to light a candle of remembrance. Light refreshments and conversation will follow in the parish hall. No RSVP is required; the service is open to all who come. St. Paul’s Episcopal Church is located at 900 Normal Road in DeKalb. For information, contact the Rev. Stacy Walker at 815-756-4888 or visit

Austin Johnson of DeKalb takes control of Justin Collins of Yorkville during their 132-pound bout Thursday. Johnson won by technical fall, helping DeKalb win, 41-24.

Barbs open conference with win By EDDIE CARIFIO DeKALB – He was winning. Then he was losing. Then it was a tie. But Jack Evans got a reversal at the buzzer to secure a win, the fourth in a row for the DeKalb wrestling team to start its match against Yorkville. The Barbs went on to win, 41-24, Thursday in the Northern Illinois Big 12 East opener for both teams. Evans led 6-4 after the first, but fell victim to an escape and a takedown to start the second against Yorkville’s Tyler Toney. He retook the lead early in the third, but Toney got a reversal in the final minute to tie. In the closing seconds, Evans got his reversal for an 11-9 win as the Barbs opened a 20-0 team lead.

“I was looking for any way out,” Evans said. “There’s always a way to win, and I had to find it. The reverse was there instead of the escape, go for that and maybe even get a pin. Honestly, I didn’t even see the time.” DeKalb coach Sam Hiatt said he was impressed with the way Evans fought. “We’ve been telling him he needs to go out there, get in a high-paced match, get in a war, not really think and do what he does in the room,” Hiatt said. “He can be awesome. He made some mistakes, but he wrestled so hard; it was an awesome win to get.” Fabian Lopez started the Barbs off with a pin at 126. He had four takedowns in the first period and started the second with a reversal. He kept looking to the bench for help in trying to secure the pin, which he did at the

2:44 mark of the match. “He’s a good person to start the meet with,” Hiatt said. “He’s a stud, no doubt about it. He’s been a lot of fun to coach already and he’s going to be a lot of fun to coach the next four years. He’s going to do some big things for us.” The Barbs also picked up a key win early from Jakob Norman, who trailed 2-0 heading into the third period at 138, but got a pin with 12.8 seconds left. Austin Johnson also had a big early win for the Barbs at 138, breaking a scoreless tie after the first period with 14 points in the second – all on takedowns – on his way to a 17-1 tech fall. Yorkville coach Jake Oster said that rough start was too much for the Foxes to overcome. “They got the momentum and they kept it going,” Oster said. “We tried to

get it back at the end of the dual, but it was a little too late for that. I think if we wrestle again it’s a little closer than 41-24.” Blah Dahnweih had a pin for the Barbs late in the first period of his 180-pound match. Tyler Scarbrough had a pin for the Barbs at 113, as well. Gabe Irwin picked up a quick first-period pin for the Barbs at 106, the third-to-final match of the night, to clinch the win for DeKalb (2-0 overall, 1-0 conference) against the Foxes (0-3, 0-1). “Some matches didn’t come out the way we wanted, but win or lose we wrestled our tails off,” Hiatt said. “We have a lot of mistakes and a lot of stuff to improve as expected, but I like the heart.”

Knights fell, 59-41, at Yorkville, their first loss of the season in what also was the Northern Illinois Big 12 East opener. Morgan Weber scored 13 points for the Knights (4-1, 0-1) and added four steals and four assists. Jamie Martens had a team-high four rebounds.

Surgery to end Cutler’s year By KEVIN FISHBAIN Jay Cutler’s season is over, as the Bears quarterback will undergo surgery Saturday to repair his labrum. Coach John Fox made the announcement Thursday and said Cutler and the team exhausted every option involving rehab to avoid surgery. “He’s tough. Like I said, he waited the two weeks, a lot of rehab,” Fox said. “They’re in there all hours of the morning and afternoon and evening. There were some different treatments that I’m not going to get into all the exacts. But, typically, things you try to do to avoid surgery, and they didn’t take for him like they were expecting. And we’re at the surgical mode at this point.” Cutler suffered the injury in the Bears’ Week 11 loss to the Giants. He did start and finish that game. This season, Cutler started five games, missing time earlier in the year with a thumb injury. He had four touchdown passes, five interceptions and a passer rating of 78.1. “I know he’s extremely competitive,” Fox said. “I think he’s been very tough-minded when he’s had to deal with things, even in our tenure here,

different surgeries, the hamstring, the thumb and now the shoulder. I think he’s handled that as well as most guys I’ve ever been associated with.” Cutler’s future with the organization is uncertain. He is under contract through 2020, but has no more guaranteed money in the six-year deal former general manager Phil Emery signed him to after the 2013 season. Cutler would make $15 million with the Bears next season and $16 million against the cap. There would only be $2 million of dead cap if the team released Cutler, according to Spotrac. “Like everything else we do, basically we won’t until that time,” Fox said about any future decision. “I think right now we have five games left and all our focus for myself, the coaching staff and the players is on San Fran. You know, offseason is the offseason. We’re not there yet.” Cutler is the 16th Bear to go on injured reserve, joining offensive tackle Kyle Long, tight end Zach Miller, inside linebacker Danny Trevathan, receiver Kevin White and outside linebacker Lamarr Houston, among others. Matt Barkley will continue as the starter for the Bears, with David Fales as his backup.

The Sycamore wrestling team got three pins and earned five forfeit victories to edge Kaneland, 48-33, Thursday night in Maple Park.

Missouri knocks NIU out of NCAAs By JESSE SEVERSON The Northern Illinois volleyball team struggled to find an answer to Melanie Crow. The Missouri junior outside hitter had a big day and the No. 15 seed Tigers swept the Huskies, 25-16, 25-13, 25-20, in the first round of the NCAA tournament Thursday in Columbia, Missouri. Crow finished the night with 17 kills (.351 hitting percentage) and had four aces for the Tigers, the SEC Champions who improved to 26-5. “Just physical; she gets on the ball pretty fast,” NIU coach Ray Gooden said of Crow, who transferred from Ole Miss. “She was able to hit it faster than we were able to block it or defend it.” NIU senior outside hitter Mary Grace Kelly had a team-high eight kills on 28 attempts, senior middle blocker and Mid-American Conference Player of the Year Jenna Radtke had six kills

on nine attempts, junior setter Chandler Kinley had 16 kills and freshman setter Sam Boever had 13 kills and nine digs for the Huskies, who end their season at 25-6. It was the seventh trip to the NCAA tournament for the Huskies, who hit .221 as a team. “For sure, the mood (in the locker room after the match) is sad because the group didn’t want it to end,” Gooden said. “Aside from we wanted to compete better against these guys, I think this group likes each other and they knew it was coming to an end.” The Tigers, who came into the match averaging a .274 hitting percentage, finished with a mark of .404 for the night. Missouri senior outside hitter Carly Kan, a three-time all-SEC player, had 10 kills and 14 digs. Missouri will face Purdue in the second round of the NCAA Tournament at 6 p.m. Friday in Columbia. The Boilermakers (19-13) swept Iowa State (18-11) in the first round Thurs-

day. The four teams at the Missouri site have the best combined RPI of any site in the tournament. “The four teams here, and most importantly the host team, you have to play really well in order to compete against those guys,” Gooden said. “They’re the SEC champions and one of the top teams in the country and they play a really inspiring style of volleyball.” The Tigers controlled the night against the Huskies on Thursday, with Northern Illinois’ only lead of the match coming early in the third set. In the first set of the night, the Huskies rattled off a 4-0 run to tie it, 10-10 – capped by a kill by Kelly that forced Missouri to call timeout. However, the Tigers answered with a 7-0 run of their own, behind three aces and two kills by Crow, who finished with all four of her aces in the first set. The Tigers, who had eight aces in the match, opened up the second set with an early 4-0 lead and pushed the

lead to 15-5 behind a 10-2 run – capped by a kill from Crow. The Huskies, who earned an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament after winning the MAC Tournament last month, jumped out to an early 3-0 advantage in the third set. The Tigers responded by tying it, 6-6, and took the lead for good on a service error by the Huskies. Missouri held a 22-14 lead late in the third, but the Huskies battled back to 24-20 after an ace by Kinley before the Tigers finished off the Huskies with the match point. “I think we were just trying to continue to play better volleyball,” Gooden said of the late run. “We just played what was in front of us and it let us play a little more comfortable.” Elsewhere in the tournament, Miami (Ohio) lost to Oregon in four sets on Thursday. The RedHawks, who lost to the Huskies in the MAC Tournament on Nov. 20, got into the NCAA tournament as an at-large bid.


Hossa exorcises Devils in overtime By MARK POTASH

after Richard Panik rushed the net. But Panik, despite trying to hold up, became entangled with Schneider as Campbell scored and was called for goaltender interference. Coach Joel Quenneville tried to put the Hawks’ Toews-less performances in the best possible light. “I think we’ve been responsible,” Quenneville said. “Going back to the San Jose game [a 2-1 loss when Toews suffered the injury], I thought we played well. Defensively, we were good against L.A. We played a reasonable game for the most part [against the Panthers]. Crow was excellent, as The Blackhawks have been finding ways to win for most of the season. Doing it without Jonathan Toews just increases the degree of difficulty. It’s well within their range – they went 2-0-1 in their first three games without Toews – and they were at it again on Thursday against the Devils. After falling behind in the first 3:13, the Hawks turned to a pair of unlikely goal-scorers – Marcus Kruger and Niklas Hjalmarsson – to give them a second-period lead before eventually prevailing, 4-3, in overtime on a goal by Marian Hossa before 21,351 at the United Center. In their second home game after the seven-game circus trip, the Hawks were sluggish early as the Devils dominated play. It paid off for New Jersey when Travis Zajac punched the puck past Corey Crawford in a scrum in front of the Hawks’ net for a 1-0 lead. The Hawks used a pair of unsuccessful power plays to build some momentum late in the period, and it paid off with a three-goal second period that gave them a 3-2 lead.

Marian Hossa celebrates his game-winning goal as Duncan Keith watches Thursday. Kruger tied it with a wrist shot from the right circle. Brent Seabrook’s stretch pass and a deft touch pass from Dennis Rasmussen in the neutral zone set it up. The Devils regained the lead with Artem Anisimov in the penalty box for hooking. Hjalmarsson’s backhand clearing attempt was tipped by Kyle Palmieri to Zajac in the slot, and Zajac, who would add a third goal in the third period, buried the shot to give the Devils a 2-1 lead at 10:43.

The Hawks responded 102 seconds later. Duncan Keith’s slap shot was stopped by Cory Schneider, but the rebound came to Anisimov in front, and he went forehand-to-backhand to beat Schneider for a 2-2 tie at 12:25. Hjalmarsson atoned for his misplay on the Zajac goal with an unassisted goal off a wrist shot to give the Hawks a 3-2 lead at 18:25. The Hawks appeared to make it 4-2 early in the third period, when Brian Campbell scored on a rebound

well.” But Quenneville acknowledged the Hawks have to make the most of their opportunities with Toews out. Scoring chances have been hard to come by in general this season. It’s even more difficult without their best centerman. “We have to play a stingy game,” Quenneville said. “We want to make sure there’s production when it’s there. We’ve generated some chances. We still think there’s enough offense to go around without Toews or his line generating stuff.”

Indiana coach Kevin Wilson abruptly resigns after 6 seasons

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – When Indiana athletic director Fred Glass woke up Thursday morning, he knew the Hoosiers’ football program would be turned upside-down. By nightfall, Glass had collected Kevin Wilson’s resignation, Tom Allen’s agreement to succeed Wilson and was trying to swat away questions about whether the abrupt coaching change was related to pushing players to return from injuries too quickly. It was one of the strangest days at one of the strangest moments in program history. Less than a week after becoming bowl-eligible for the second straight season, Wilson was out of a job because of what Glass described as “philosophical differences.” “I thought the core of what we talked about boiled down to leadership and how you are a leader,” Glass said. “I think Kevin and I have some honest disagreements about how you go about that. I’m not saying I’m right and he’s wrong. I think we concluded, maturely and appropriately, it’s time to go our separate ways.”

Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand said the incident involving McKnight happened about 2:43 p.m. Thursday in Terrytown, a suburb of New Orleans. The 28-year-old running back was standing outside his car when he was shot by Ronald Gasser, 54, Normand said during a news conference at the scene of the shooting. “The only thing we know right now, everything else is conjecture, is that Mr. Gasser did in fact shoot Mr. McKnight,” Normand said. McKnight is the second former NFL player this year to die in the New Orleans area as a result of a possible road-rage incident. Former New Orleans Saints player Will Smith was killed in April in a shooting that was sparked over a traffic altercation. McKnight played three seasons for the New York Jets and one with the Kansas City Chiefs.

ASK THE DOCTORS Robert Ashley creased death rates among people who sit for prolonged periods. The biggest problem is being sedentary in front of a television. The average American watches more than four hours of television a day. Some studies have found for every additional two hours in front of the television, the risk of diabetes increases 14 to 20 percent. Here’s why: Sitting for prolonged periods decreases insulin sensitivity, meaning your blood sugar rises. Add to that the types of sugary foods that often are eaten while watching television, and you have the creation of a serious health problem. If you’re sedentary throughout the day, exercise can help ease the negative impact, but not completely make up for it. So for starters, watch less television or, if you do watch television, put an exercise bike in front of the screen. Second, if you have a job in which you sit for long periods, take three-minute breaks every 30 minutes to stretch and walk around a little. Every little bit of activity helps. • Robert Ashley, M.D., is an internist and assistant professor of medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Dear Readers: Welcome to the second day of our new “Ask the Doctors” column. As an internist and primary care physician at UCLA Health, my approach to medicine is to understand I don’t have all the answers – I have to learn new topics and review old topics all the time. Sometimes, I can provide answers right away. But sometimes, I have to stop and reassess. Medicine has seen many breakthroughs since I graduated from medical school nearly 20 years ago, and evidence has changed many dogmatic ways of practice. Objective, non-biased data are important to the practice of medicine. Doctors must understand how that data can be applied to one person or to large groups of people. You met my colleagues Dr. Eve Glazier and Dr. Elizabeth Ko yesterday and learned about their approach to health and wellness. My column focuses on common sense answers based on scientific literature. As I increase my professional knowledge, I hope to provide people with thoughtful and deliberate interpretations of medical science that people can use to direct their own health. Dear Doctor: My job requires me to sit in front of a computer for at least eight hours a day. When I come home, I usually watch television for a few hours before going to bed. Is being so sedentary bad for me? Dear Reader: Unequivocally, yes. Many studies of many types have found in-

husband of 23 years, “Gerald,” quit his job to start his own law firm. He told me about it only after he had quit. I have tried to be supportive, but seven months down the line, he has spent all our “rainy day” cash and earned only one paycheck. We have two teenagers, one who will be going to college in a year. I took a high-paying job a year ago to help pay down our mortgage and fund our son’s college expenses. Gerald claimed the bonus money he received when he quit his old job belonged to him to fund the new venture. He’s now saying seven months is too little time to make any huge decisions, but we are going to start liquidating our 401(k)s. This is where I draw the line. He needs to get a job. I have worked every year of our marriage. I feel like I’m living with a selfish stranger who calls me a “money-hungry stereotypical female” when I ask when he’ll get paid. Is it time for me to take off the rose-colored glasses and file for divorce? – Stuck In His Midlife Crisis Dear Stuck: Your husband should have discussed his career change with you before he quit the law firm. Do not allow him to push you into taking money from your 401(k). Because your husband hasn’t yet reached retirement age, when he liquidates his, there will be a penalty for early withdrawal. Consult an attorney – other than your husband – about what your next steps should be to protect yourself and your children because your spouse does not appear to be making rational decisions. Dear Abby: I am writing in response to the letter from “Loving Granddaughter” on July 2, who was asking for ways to prepare for the eventual passing of her grandparents. A way to help her cope with her premature grief would be to take time to sit down with her grandparents and video a personal interview with them. This “Interview With a Loved One” provides an opportunity to capture her favorite stories and memories as told by her grandparents in their own words. We started doing this with my grandfather when he first was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, before he started losing his memory. After he finally succumbed, going back to his interviews was a great way for our family to remember him in the way he would have wanted to be remembered. – Jessica In Missouri Dear Jessica: That’s a wonderful suggestion, one I know will be appreciated by many of my readers. Thank you. Dear Abby: How do I introduce my unmarried daughter’s baby daddy? Can’t say “husband,” and can’t say “partner” since gays have claimed that word. – I’d Like You To Meet ... Dear Meet: When you introduce your grandchild’s daddy, use his name and say, “This is ‘John,’ ‘Jessica’s’ partner.” The term is not used exclusively by LGBT people, but by straight couples as well.

Newspaper Enterprise Association TODAY – You’ll have plenty to consider if you have taken on too much this year. Secure your home base before you get any deeper into a project or situation that can lead to neglecting the people you love or your personal environment. Restructure your plans if it will help avoid backlash. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – Design a blueprint that you know will work, and present what you have to offer with confidence. Stick to your plans to stop others from taking advantage of you. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Emotions will flare up if you get into conversations with peo-

ple in positions of authority. Don’t burn bridges, or you will end up getting stuck with a messy cleanup job. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – Keep your plans simple and your goals realistic. There is plenty to gain by being prepared and taking your time to go over the small but important details. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – If you want to get ahead, stop being so accommodating and stay focused on your own passion. Develop an idea and call in favors that will lead to your success. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – The unpredictable nature of what’s going on around you will be unnerving. Do your best, take a disciplined approach to your responsibilities and don’t lose sight of your goals. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – Keep life simple.

Hanging out with the wrong people will lead to loss, injury or emotional stress. Making personal improvements and investing in your future will be in your best interest. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – A change of attitude or mood will develop if an unexpected loss occurs due to a lack of reserve or insight. Make sure you do your homework before you take on an impossible task. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – Take it easy when it comes to your health and physical wellness. Too much of anything will lead to trouble. Focus on love, nurturing important relationships and making travel or educational plans. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – Bring about positive change at work and home by pursuing what makes you happy. Have faith in your ability to

get things done. An unusual offer will spark interest. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Set aside a space at home to develop or expand a project you want to pursue, or attend a networking event. Romance is highlighted, and sharing your feelings will encourage a commitment. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – Emotions will surface when you deal with personal or domestic matters. Don’t let anyone use manipulative tactics to guilt you into something you don’t agree with or want to do. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – Plan an adventure or sign up for something that will help you develop skills, experience and knowledge. Doing your own thing will lead to discord with someone who feels left out.
