Bad decisions enable Trump’s attacks on news media There are some things on which I strongly disagree with President-elect Donald Trump. His tax returns must be made public. It is not only reporters that care about it – but it is their job to care. This is supposed to be part of the campaign vetting process, a part that Trump skirted – offering multiple excuses, but I suspect it’s because he’s not quite as fabulously rich as he lets on. Or at least, he wasn’t. Although I don’t think Trump is a good person to consult on the role of the press in a free society, on this point he is right: The unverified details of a confidential intelligence briefing should not have been reported to the American people as news. The online news organization BuzzFeed, which Trump on Wednesday called a “failing pile of garbage,” decided to publish the thing in its entirety online, with the note that it was “unverified, and potentially unverifiable” and “prepared for political opponents of Trump.” (CNN’s account of the existence of the information – without specifying what they were – got them labeled “fake news” during the president’s news conference. But if he really believed that, he wouldn’t send a top aide to argue with them the next day.) The report was prepared by an unnamed person. Its allegations have not been confirmed by anyone. Its creation was financed by Trump’s political opponents as opposition research. Unconfirmed allegations, of anonymous origin collected by people out to do harm? We have a word for such things. They’re called rumors, not news. Credible news organizations don’t report rumors, especially rumors that are generally damaging to a person’s reputation. I hate to see media outlets make ill-considered decisions like BuzzFeed did. By unleashing a blatant smear against the president-elect, they have only lent cred-

EDITOR’S NOTE Eric Olson ibility to his complaints about the “dishonest media.” Rumors fly around every newsroom in America every day. They come to us from anonymous letters, emails, phone calls, Facebook messages and face-to-face meetings. Our policy is not to write things we can’t confirm, and we don’t seek to confirm things that aren’t of public interest. But then, the Daily Chronicle serves the people of DeKalb County. Our reporters and editors live here. The people we write about are our neighbors. Sometimes we publish stories and opinion pieces that we know will have an impact, and before we do, we have to think about the consequences. Sometimes the people we write about that evening are people we expect to see the next day. It’s not important that they like what we write, but it is important that we be able to stand behind our reasons for writing it. Who does BuzzFeed serve? Hard to say. Anyone they can get to click on one of their links, I suppose. From that perspective, their “story” was a big success – millions of people viewed it. They’re not accountable to the residents of any particular place, which might be part of the reason why the editor felt insulated enough from consequences that he would choose to publish an unconfirmed and undignified report about the President-elect. That shouldn’t have happened. • Eric Olson is editor of the Daily Chronicle. Reach him at 815-756-4841 ext. 2257, email eolson@shawmedia.com, or follow him on Twitter @DC_Editor.

Public’s help sought in 5-month-old slaying of Sycamore mother, son By ERIC R. OLSON

eolson@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – DeKalb County Sheriff Roger Scott knows the public has not forgotten. People regularly approach him and ask about it. “Have you got anything on that double-murder case?” But police know little about the person or people who broke into the rural Sycamore home of Patricia A. Wilson, 85, and her son, Robert J. Wilson, 64, and beat them to death. Police said the Wilsons were killed Aug. 14 at their home at 16058 Old State Road, sometime between 7:45 p.m., when Patricia Wilson had a phone conversation with a relative, and midnight. An autopsy found the Wilsons died from being beaten with a blunt object. The 5-month-old investigation has been a determined one. For weeks, more than 20 investigators worked the case, racking up more than $80,000 in overtime and generating more than 1,000 leads. The sheriff’s office now has two detectives assigned to work on it full time, chasing each lead as far as it will go. They have determined some things about the crime. There were signs the killer broke in, but it was not a robbery. It was not a crime of passion. It does not appear to have been a serial killer. But they said they do not know what motivated the killer or killers. They do not have any suspects. They do not know if the person or people responsible were local or from out of town. Scott and Chief Deputy Andy Sullivan say investigators need the public’s help to break the case. They urged anyone with information they haven’t told police to contact them. People with information can call the sheriff’s office at 815-895-2155. Or they can remain anonymous by calling DeKalb County Crime Stoppers at 815895-3272. There is a $25,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest. “Anything that the public may know, any information, we really want to hear because maybe we haven’t heard it yet,” Sullivan said. “Maybe it’s something new, maybe they haven’t called because they thought we already knew it, something like that. “Nothing’s too small.”

MASSIVE INVESTIGATION

Investigators were at a disadvantage from the start on the case. The killings

DeKalb County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Andy Sullivan (left) and Sheriff Roger Scott talk during an interview Jan. 6 at the Daily Chronicle office in DeKalb. occurred almost 24 hours before the crime scene was discovered about 6 p.m. Aug. 15. The killer or killers were careful not to leave a lot of evidence at the scene, Sullivan said. They might have approached the home from the Great Western Trail, which runs close behind the home’s backyard. Although Robert Wilson had won a $1 million lottery prize in 1988, robbery does not appear to have been the motive – the only thing taken from the house was Patricia Wilson’s white, 2010 Chevrolet Impala. Sullivan was among the first on the scene on the evening of Aug. 15, and county crime-scene technicians spent hours at the home, taking the next four days to complete their work. Investigators have sent more than 100 items to the state crime lab for analysis, Sullivan said. Police have not revealed much of what they found at the crime scene. It is common for investigators to withhold information from the public so they can verify whether tips they might receive are legitimate.

Police activated the DeKalb County Major Case Squad, a cooperative in which the county’s largest police departments all contribute their best-trained detectives to try to solve major crimes. In addition, state and federal authorities provided support and air surveillance. More than 20 investigators from the sheriff’s office, as well as DeKalb, Sycamore and Northern Illinois University police worked on the case from Aug. 15 until Sept. 23. In all, they logged more than $80,000 in overtime, in addition to the regular hours, equipment costs and other costs associated with the investigation. Early on, investigators were focused on finding the vehicle, searching locations one could ditch a vehicle – in old barns, creeks and other out-of-the-way places. Finally, after 10 days and countless hours of searching, Chicago police located the Chevy legally parked in a lot near the Lincoln Park Zoo, where it appeared to have been for several days. “We were focusing on the vehicle and finding the vehicle because they needed

$25,000 reward offered Investigators still need the public’s help with information about the killings of Robert Wilson, 64, and his mother, Patricia Wilson, 85, on Aug. 14 at their home at 16058 Old State Road. Police said the killings occurred sometime between 7:45 p.m. and midnight that day. There were signs of a break-in at the house. Any information that someone knows that they haven’t reported – no matter how small – could help solve the case. To report a tip, call the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office at 815895-2155. Callers can remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 815-895-3272. Police will protect the identity of callers to Crime Stoppers, who can still receive a reward.

D-428 discusses student diversity forums By DREW ZIMMERMAN

dzimmerman@shawmedia.com DeKALB – The DeKalb School District 428 board was tasked with compiling at least three questions it would want asked in a series of public forums to assess student diversity within schools during a special board meeting Thursday. The forums would then be used in a study determining diversity needs. “The purpose of the study is social justice,” interim superintendent Bradley Hawk said. “Statistics show that we have populations of the stu-

dent body doing worse than others, thus we need to look at how we can improve that as far as service and curriculum.” DeKalb High School faced racial unrest last year during the school’s Black History Month presentation, which led to the resignation of former principal Tamra Ropeter. One of the questions proposed by Hawk was what kinds of community resources and outreach will there be to assist the board in developing conclusions from the study. “Mayor [John] Rey asked me if he should be asking local businesses to

fund the study, and the implementation is where we may need assistance,” Hawk said. An estimated cost of the study or a timetable of when the forums could take place was not mentioned during the meeting’s open session. Several board members requested questions on how to properly define social justice in the schools and the community. “The perception of affluent groups is always that [they] are doing pretty good because they’re in power, so what’s the perception of affluent people within DeKalb? Do they perceive

it as an issue?” Hawk asked. “My concern is that whoever is participating in these forums is representative of the community,” board member Mary Hess said. “And what does a healthy social justice culture look like at each level?” “They have quantitative data of performance levels from the last few years, but we don’t have qualitative data, as far as why this is occurring,” Hawk said. “I want to know what the actual data is. We will be getting surveys, focus groups and recommendations, but it will be up to the board and the administration to act.”

Jury convicts Genoa man of sexual assault of child By BRETT ROWLAND

browland@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – A jury convicted a Genoa man of predatory criminal sexual assault Thursday after a two-day trial. C.A. Barnett, 67, of the 300 block of North Sycamore Street in Genoa, was charged in 2012 with predatory criminal sexual assault of a child and criminal sexual abuse. The crimes allegedly involved three different children, but the trial only involved the charge related to one victim – who is now a 21-year-old woman. After deliberating for three hours, the jury returned with a guilty verdict. The victim, surrounded by supporters, DeKalb County State’s Attorney Rick Amato, and most of the

attorneys from the state’s attorney’s office, wept on hearing the verdict. Barnett, who had been free on bond since 2012, was taken to the DeKalb County Jail. He faces up to 30 years in prison at a sentencing hearing April 3. Prosecutors said that Barnett played games with the victim when she was a girl. He would tell her that she was his favorite and offer C.A. Barnett to take her to the playground if she engaged in the games, which involved touching of a sexual nature. On Wednesday, the victim took the stand to recount the abuse, which she said happened when she was 3 to 7 years old. She also told the jury why

it took her so long to come forward. She said Barnett told her to keep the games a secret and that if she said anything, it would destroy her family. “I never said anything, because my family means the world to me,” she said. A much younger female family member also testified that Barnett had inappropriately touched her. Charges related to that victim remain pending. First Assistant State’s Attorney Stephanie Klein in her closing argument told the jury that in the absence of physical evidence, they should look at credibility of the witnesses who testified. Klein was assisted by Assistant State’s Attorney Alicia Caplan in the prosecution. Defense attorney Stephen Richards

argued that the victim’s testimony was inconsistent because the crimes “never happened.” Barnett denied the allegations from the witness stand. Richards said “reasonable doubt” was the key to the case. The jury didn’t see it that way. After the verdict, Klein said she hadn’t decided how many years to ask for at the sentencing hearing. She said that any decision on moving forward with other charges against Barnett would be done in consultation with the alleged victims in those cases and would likely take place after the sentencing hearing. Richards said his client planned to appeal. Chief Judge Robbin Stuckert presided over the trial. She will decide Barnett’s sentence.

Application period begins for spring community grants By STEPHANIE MARKHAM smarkham@shawmedia.com

SYCAMORE – Nonprofits and charities in the DeKalb County area are encouraged to apply for grants now available through the DeKalb County Community Foundation. Applications for spring Community Needs Grants and Farny R. Wurlitzer Foundation Fund Grants are available until the March 1 deadline. The grants are given each year in the spring and fall. To apply online, visit dekalbccf.org/grantprograms. Community Needs Grants support the efforts of local nonprofit and community organizations. The Farny R. Wurlitzer Foundation Fund also supports local nonprofits and community groups,

but with a focus on furthering music education, music appreciation and performance. This fund supports groups in the Chicago area as well. Last year, the DeKalb County Community Foundation provided $381,441 in Community Needs Grants to support 54 local organizations, according to a news release. It also granted $236,700 from the Wurlitzer Foundation Fund to support 50 organizations in the DeKalb County and Chicago areas, according to the release. Noah Nordbrock, donor services and marketing director for the Community Foundation, said the Farny R. Wurlitzer Foundation was established in 1940 to support music and music education in the Midwest. Its board of directors partnered with the DeKalb County Community Foundation and established a

donor-advised fund in 2012, he said. Nordbrock said some of the most recent recipients of this fund include KishHealth System Hospice Music Therapy, the Chicago Children’s Choir and the DuPage Children’s Museum. Community Needs Grants are specifically designated for groups in DeKalb County. Nordbrock said the first grants given by the Community Foundation when it was established in 1993 were Community Needs Grants. He said recent recipients include the Barb Food Mart, the DeKalb Area Women’s Center, the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office, DeKalb School District 428 and the Egyptian Theatre. For application questions or to learn more about grant making opportunities, contact Becky Zantout, grants and community initiatives manager, at 815-748-5383 or becky@dekalbccf.org.

Former DeKalb substitute teacher Arison could get parole as early as 2023 parole date as Oct. 18, 2023, and his projected discharge date as Oct. 18, 2026. Arison has been at Stateville Correctional Center in Crest Hill Andrew J. since Jan. 6, according Arison to prison records. Arison’s arrest in March 2015 shocked the community and left many parents shaken. All of the victims were in an early childhood program for 3- to 5-year-olds at the school district, and many of them couldn’t speak, a fact that made the case difficult to prosecute. Upon his release, Arison will be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

CREST HILL – A former substitute teacher convicted of child sex crimes could get out of prison before the 12 children he molested finish high school. Andrew J. Arison, 38, formerly of 1720 Maness Court, Sycamore, pleaded guilty Dec. 28 to charges of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child, aggravated criminal sexual abuse and possession of child pornography. He had faced up to 60 years in prison, but under terms of an agreement with prosecutors, he was sentenced to a total of 13 years in exchange for a guilty plea. The Illinois Department of Corrections this week listed his projected

Mudroom Ideas for Organization SPONSORED BY

Saturday: Homemade Goulash

TAIL FOR DE 5 4-668

Your mudroom is a busy place year-round, but it can really start working overtime once the winter hits. There are layers of heavy coats and jackets that need a place to be stowed, along with hats, mittens and boots. All of these items can quickly pile up, resulting in madness. However, with some proper mudroom organization, you can keep your entryway free of chaos. 1. Start at the Door Doormats can help you nip dirt in the bud. Keep a small hamper inside your door so that you can shed damp socks and mittens as soon as you come in. 2. Get Hooked Hooks may be small, but they can have a major impact on your mudroom storage. You can use them to hang book bags, organize coats, sweaters, scarves and hats, and keep keys from getting lost.

3. Make Your Bench Pull Double-Duty It’s a great idea to have a bench and a better idea if it offers storage! It gives you a place to untie those tough knots, as well as cubbies to stow shoes and boots. This way, footwear doesn’t clutter up your mudroom, and any rogue dirt or wet leaves will be contained. 4. Embrace the Shelf Life Shelving units can be installed so that they create lockers/cubbies to hold backpacks, or equipment. Add some hooks and you can hang scarves and coats in the back, include a basket with dry socks or slippers for each family member so they have something to change into. The winter months can take a toll on your entryway, but they don’t have to. Spend time perfecting your mudroom storage and organization game now, and you could spare yourself a lot of time cleaning and tidying. It’s Winter Time Maid Easy by Merry Maids of Sycamore!

Man sues over his flag-burning arrest By SOPHIA TAREEN The Associated Press

CHICAGO – A 22-year-old central Illinois man who was arrested and detained after posting online pictures of himself burning an American flag has filed a federal lawsuit seeking to have the state’s flag desecration law declared unconstitutional. Such state laws are already invalid after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled separately, in 1989 and 1990, that flag burning and other forms of damage are constitutionally protected free speech. However, dozens of states still have the laws. Police in Urbana used Illinois’ flag desecration law to arrest local resident Bryton Mellott on July 4 of last year. He said he carefully planned his demonstration to protest racial discrimination, poverty and other injustices, and then posted six photographs of his actions on Facebook. The posts, which generated hundreds of comments, led police officers to arrest Mellott while he worked at Wal-Mart and detain him for several hours. He was released without being charged. Mellott, who is being represented by the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois, discussed the lawsuit at a

News from across the state Illinois, Indiana fine hunters who falsify residency

SPRINGFIELD – Conservation officers in Illinois and Indiana said they’ve issued more than $85,000 in fines to hunters who falsely claimed residency in either state to get a hunting permit at a cheaper rate. Illinois Conservation police Sgt. David Hyatt said the joint “Operation Double Dip” started in early 2015 and ran through 2016. He said the investigation “protects the privileges of our legitimate resident hunters.” Both states have laws that say a person may only claim residency in one state at a time when buying a resident hunting or fishing license. In Illinois, 211 people were cited for

HAMMOND, Ind. – The commuter train line that runs from South Bend, Indiana, to Chicago has suspended some service because of weather.

Adler Planetarium reports record-high attendance

CHICAGO – Chicago’s Adler Planetarium recorded its highest attendance in more than two decades with attractive new exhibits and shows that take on scientific questions. Adler reported 570,000 visitors in 2016. That is more than the site has seen at any point since 1993 when admission was free. The planetarium’s president is Michelle B. Larson. She said more people are coming because the exhibits make them feel more involved. They include award-winning exhibits and popular presentations which explore questions such as why Pluto is no longer a planet. Adler officials hope to welcome more visitors this year with additional exhibits

hasn’t been a priority. About 40 states have flag desecration laws and only a handful have changed them. Wisconsin’s flag desecration law was knocked down by the state Supreme Court in the 1990s and removed. Missouri’s was repealed effective this month, after a long court battle prompted by a similar lawsuit. President-elect Donald Trump recently said that anyone who burns an American flag should face “consequences,” such as jail or a loss of citizenship, despite the Supreme Court determinations. The lawsuit, filed late Wednesday, names several police officers. Urbana police have said they arrested Mellott to protect him from possible backlash from the online posts. An Urbana Police Department spokesman did not return a message seeking comment. An attorney for the ACLU said one of their main goals is to provide clarity for authorities. “It’s very clear that this law is unconstitutional and we want to make sure that in the future, Illinois law enforcement officers know that they cannot arrest people under this statute,” ACLU attorney Rebecca Glenberg said. Mellott also seeks unspecified damages.

Library receives award to preserve circus history

NORMAL – Milner Library at Illinois State University has received a $268,000 award to digitize a collection of circus route books dating back to the 19th century. The library in Normal announced the award Wednesday. The nonprofit Council on Library and Information Resources in Washington, D.C., is providing the funding for the project to preserve circus history. Circus route books contain information about people, positions and events during a circus show’s season.

FBI’s actions before election to be probed By KEN THOMAS

The Associated Press WASHINGTON – In yet another aftershock from the chaotic presidential campaign, the Justice Department inspector general opened an investigation Thursday into department and FBI actions before the election, including whether FBI Director James Comey followed established policies in the email investigation of Hillary Clinton. Democrats have blamed Comey’s handling of the inquiry into Clinton’s use of a private email server, and his late-October public letter about the case, in part for her loss to Republican Donald Trump. Workers are now putting final touches on preparations for next week’s Inauguration Day festivities, and the new probe will not change the election results. But it revives questions of whether the FBI took actions that might have influenced the outcome. Inspector General Michael Horowitz, the department’s internal watchdog, will direct the investigation, which comes in response to requests from members of Congress and the public. Comey said he was pleased about the review and the FBI would cooperate fully with the inspector general. “I hope very much he is able to share his conclusions and observations with the public because everyone will benefit from thoughtful evaluation and transparency regarding this matter,” he said in a statement. Robby Mook, who served as Clinton’s campaign manager, said it had raised concerns when Comey commented on the investigation and said the release of his letters in the days before the election was “extremely destruc-

The Justice Department’s Inspector General Michael Horowitz said he will launch an investigation into the Justice Department and FBI’s actions in the months leading up to the 2016 election. tive and ended up amounting to nothing whatsoever.” “It’s a troubling pattern that the FBI seems to have chosen a horse in this election, and we welcome this investigation so this doesn’t happen again,” Mook said. During a Senate Intelligence Committee briefing on Russian hacking, Comey was pressed by lawmakers of his handling of the investigation. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W. Va., said Comey “defended it very well ... he put the facts out there, and hindsight being 20/20, he said these are the facts I had to deal with, and these are the decisions I made, I’m sorry if someone takes offense.” “He explained to us that he was faced with two decisions – one with very bad consequences and the other with disastrous consequences,” said Sen. Tom Carper, D-Del. “He chose what he thought was the less harmful consequences to our country.” Horowitz’s office is one of many independent investigative bodies designed to oversee the conduct of federal departments and agencies. They most commonly seek to ferret out misconduct and

fraud in the department or among its contractors. Investigating an agency’s top leadership is a rare, but not unheard of, occurrence. One part of the review will concern Comey’s news conference last July in which he said the FBI would not recommend charges against Clinton for her use of a private email system during her tenure as secretary of state. Trump repeatedly criticized that practice, contending it put national security secrets at risk. Trump also declared at raucous rallies during the campaign that he would seek a special prosecutor to investigate Clinton and that she would be in jail if he were elected. But he said after the election that he did not intend to seek a new investigation of her. Comey, during his announcement in the summer, broke protocol when he chastised Clinton and her aides as “extremely careless” in their email practices. It’s highly unusual for federal law enforcement officials to discuss a criminal case that ends without charges being filed.

After the vehicle was found, investigators went to the hundreds of businesses between Sycamore and Chicago on Route 64 to request surveillance camera footage. “We were looking to find the vehicle and see inside the vehicle, maybe find an image of the driver,” Sullivan said. They found video of the vehicle traveling along the road that night. But none of the shots captured the face of the suspected killer behind the wheel.

Investigators have thought more than once that they were closing in on an arrest, Scott said, only to decide the person of interest wasn’t guilty after looking at more evidence. “Obviously, we don’t put that out every time because then everybody’s on the same roller coaster we are,” Scott said. “ … Part of our job is to prove that somebody didn’t do it to the best of our ability, and that’s what we’ve done. The guys worked hard at that, and it’s disappointing, but it’s satisfying in that you know your case is going to be solid when you do make it.” After examining evidence, investigators have ruled out the Wilsons’ immediate family members – who also live in the area – as suspects. Sullivan speaks with them regularly, to provide updates on the case. Family members have declined to speak publicly about the crime. “They’re waiting for me to call and tell them I have somebody in handcuffs,” Sullivan said. “I don’t have that, so it’s been difficult. But someday we’ll get it.” Police have provided all the details they’ve learned about the case to the FBI in Quantico, Virginia. The federal agency operates the Violent Criminal Apprehension Program. ViCAP serves as the national repository for violent crimes and helps law enforcement agencies from different jurisdictions find links between crimes. Details on the slaying of Wilsons were entered into the system almost immediately after the crimes were discovered, Sullivan said. The in-depth data can include details on the victims, type of trauma, crime scene specifics, vehicle descriptions, modus operandi and other details. The system is only available to law enforcement agencies. “We did a telephone conference with [the FBI] in Virginia,” Sullivan said. “… They have all of our case, so they’re actively reviewing that, looking for any similarities anywhere else.” It doesn’t appear the killings were the work of a serial killer, Sullivan said. Whoever is responsible has made no attempt to contact police.

The home at 16058 Old State Road is seen from the Great Western Trail on Thursday in Sycamore. Patricia A. Wilson, 85, and her son, Robert J. Wilson, 64, were found dead at the residence Aug. 14. Police continue their homicide investigation.

Costs of a homicide investigation More than 20 trained investigators from the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office, DeKalb police, Sycamore police and Northern Illinois University police worked on the case while the Major Crimes Task Force conducted its investigation from Aug. 15 until Sept. 23. Costs of the investigation, by department: DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office Overtime: about $36,500 Regular hours: about $71,500 Fuel/equipment/supplies: $5,000 • The Sheriff’s Auxiliary also provided 200 hours of volunteer assistance on the case at no cost. DeKalb police Overtime: $19,230 Regular hours: $59,040 Fuel/equipment/supplies: $500 Sycamore police Overtime: About $20,000 Northern Illinois University police Overtime: $9,153 Source: Local police departments Law enforcement agencies around the state are aware, however. As recently as December, police in Normal contacted the sheriff’s office after a stepfather and son were kidnapped from their home. The family had recently won the lottery. A South Peoria man has since been

charged in connection with the incident, in which one of the two people abducted died. It does not appear to be related, Scott said.

WHAT’S NEXT?

officers putting in more than $19,000 in overtime in addition to about $59,000 worth of regular hours worked by detectives and two top commanders. The investigators were working out of the DeKalb Police Station for weeks because there wasn’t enough parking at the sheriff’s office with the ongoing jail construction, officials said. The case has now been returned to the sheriff’s office, where two detectives were assigned to it full time as of this month, Scott said. With more than 1,000 leads generated by investigators from the Major Case Squad, as well as the continued test results arriving periodically from the state police crime lab, they will have plenty of work to do every day, Scott said. But they’ll also be ready for the day when someone talks about the crime, and it reaches the ears of someone willing to come forward. Police said they will listen to anyone – provided they have a verifiable story. “I’m not sure this person has a conscience, if they do have one it’s probably so modified that it doesn’t bother them, but they do talk, and so somebody may hear,” Scott said. “And that’s what we’re hoping, that somebody will call.” Eventually, Scott believes that someone will talk, someone will come forward, or some new information will surface to provide investigators with the break they need to make an arrest. “I’m confident it’s going to be solved,” he said, “but I obviously don’t know how long it’s going to take us.”

Work on the case has never stopped, even after the Major Case Squad was deactivated, police said. It’s common with cases such as this for all those who work on it to feel a sense of responsibility, especially officers such as Sullivan who are among the first to arrive at the crime scene. Although the home where the Wilsons lived is outside the Sycamore city limits, Robert Wilson was a beloved member of the Sycamore Moose Lodge 1506 in downtown Sycamore. He and his mother were both longtime members of the community. Sycamore Police Chief Glenn Theriault said the roughly $20,000 in overtime costs that his department’s investigators logged working on the case were about two-thirds of the annual overtime budget. Area investigators remain in constant contact about the case, Theriault said. “This case, like a lot of difficult cases, the difficulty is keeping everybody on point with it because these are marathons, not sprints,” Theriault said. “But you’re constantly gaining ground on the case, and you’re constantly moving toward the finish line.” “It’s frustrating when you don’t have somebody in custody and somebody to be held accountable for viciously murdering two people,” he added. DeKalb police also invested signif• Daily Chronicle News Editor Brett icant time in the investigation, with Rowland contributed to this report.

Ag secretary: Saving the best for last?

It is one week and counting before the Trump administration takes over the reins of the U.S. government. Trump has been a busy man since his surprise victory on Nov. 8. Assembling a White House staff and selecting nominees to be in charge of various departments is a monumental task. With Trump’s announcement Wednesday of his nomination of David Shulkin to lead the sprawling Veterans Affairs department, he has made all his cabinet-level nominations except one. The U.S. Department of Agriculture is important to the nation in general, and to Illinois and DeKalb County farmers in particular. The Ag Department offers programs and provides direction in a lot of areas that affect thousands of farmers and ranchers across the country. Names of several potential nominees have been floated in various news reports. Among them: • Sonny Perdue III, former governor of Georgia. Some consider him the front-runner. • Elsa Murano, former president of Texas A&M. • Henry Bonilla, a former Texas congressman. • Sid Miller, Texas agriculture commissioner. • Susan Combs, former Texas agriculture commissioner. • Abel Maldonado, former California lieutenant governor. • Butch Otter, Idaho governor. • Heidi Heitkamp, U.S. senator from North Dakota. Whoever is nominated will take over from Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack, the former governor of Iowa who has served all eight years of President Barack Obama’s tenure. Issues facing the new ag secretary are many. American farmers export a lot of their crops and commodities, so they could be impacted by any changes the new administration might make in import and export policy. If the new administration relaxes environmental regulations, farmers could well benefit. The new ag secretary also will be called on to deal with the intricacies of the 2018 Farm Bill. In any endeavor such as choosing Cabinet-level secretaries, someone has to be last. We hope the Ag Department’s appearance at the bottom of Mr. Trump’s nominee list isn’t any sort of an indication of his regard for America’s hardworking farmers and ranchers. Perhaps Mr. Trump is merely saving the best for last. We sincerely hope that is the case.

THE FIRST

AMENDMENT

ANOTHER VIEW

Trump’s vaccine view defies science Donald Trump’s views on vaccines have long been out of sync with science. Childhood vaccines cause autism, he asserted at a debate in 2015, echoing statements he had made in 2014 and 2012. But now the president-elect is poised to do more than just pass along misinformation: He has asked a die-hard “anti-vaxxer” to lead a commission on “vaccination and scientific integrity.” The appointee is Robert Kennedy Jr., who has been skeptical about vaccines for years, believing – like Trump, on zero evidence – that the preservative some contain is linked to autism. Sadly, this is not just a matter of two men sharing a thoroughly debunked theory. In the U.S., and increasingly the rest of the world, notions about the danger of vaccines are spreading, causing some parents to skip them altogether and increasing the risk that children will suffer

and die from measles and other preventable illnesses. In Texas, which has become the center of the anti-vaccination movement, tens of thousands of children are going without vaccines, a 20-fold increase since 2003. The danger is that Trump and Kennedy will stoke more pushback against state requirements that children be vaccinated against major communicable illnesses before enrolling in school. Most states allow religious exemptions from such rules, but only 18 still allow exemptions based on personal beliefs. Texas is the largest of these, and the legislature is debating various ways to strengthen its law. All states should, at least, require schools to publish the percentage of their students who have been vaccinated, so that parents can be assured that the schools are safe. Vaccines are safe, as any number of studies and reports

have shown. The only study that ever claimed to detect any link between vaccines and autism famously turned out to be a fraud, and its author was barred from practicing medicine. Doctors have also demonstrated that the recommended inoculation schedule for children is not too early or too rushed, as Trump has alleged. On the contrary, it’s important to protect the very young from whooping cough, diphtheria and other illnesses, and it is essential that they get vaccines when they will be most effective. Kennedy said Tuesday that he and the president-elect simply think “we ought to be reading the science and we ought to be debating the science.” If the two men were that reasonable, they wouldn’t be making vaccines an issue at all.

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.

A call for activists for journalism Well, that was quite the spectacle. In his first news conference since July, President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday likened the U.S. intelligence community to Nazi Germany, talked about himself in the third person as he described Vladimir Putin’s affection for him and attacked not one but two news organizations. He refused to take a question from CNN reporter Jim Acosta, accusing him of working for “fake news.” He called BuzzFeed “a failing pile of garbage” for publishing 35 pages of unverified allegations about ties between Trump and the Russian government. “I think they’re going to suffer the consequences,” he said about BuzzFeed. He also predicted, “I will be the greatest jobs producer that God ever created.” “And I mean that,” he added, in case anyone might have wondered aloud, “Did he just say ‘God?’ ” Oh, yeah. For the rest of that afternoon, emergency alert tests kept popping up on my TV screen. Coincidental, I’m sure, but it does have a way of focusing one’s mind. CNN, by the way, only reported that both President Barack Obama and Trump had received a two-page synop-

VIEWS Connie Schultz sis of the allegations, without providing details. Trump still thinks CNN is stinky. So there. Social media were full of criticism of the other reporters in the room for not defending Acosta in the moment. I hope to see such unity in the future, but I won’t pile on here. We’ve never seen the likes of this. No president loves the media, but in the past, they’ve typically vented their grievances privately and, sometimes, strategically. Trump hates us and loves reminding all of America just how much. The journalists in that room had a lot of questions and no idea how long they’d have before he shut the whole thing down. Everything’s going to be very, very great. That’s all you need to know. As for BuzzFeed, this is not its finest hour. Its initial explanation for the story: “BuzzFeed News is publishing the full document so that Americans can make up their own minds about allegations

about the president-elect that have circulated at the highest levels of the U.S. government.” That’s not what we’re supposed to do as journalists. Our job is to hunt down the claims and prove or disprove them. “Sources,” we call them. “Facts,” too. In a memo to staff, BuzzFeed Editor-in-Chief Ben Smith wrote: “As we noted in our story, there is serious reason to doubt the allegations. We have been chasing specific claims in this document for weeks, and will continue to. “Publishing this document was not an easy or simple call, and people of goodwill may disagree with our choice. But publishing this dossier reflects how we see the job of reporters in 2017.” I would not characterize myself as one of those people of goodwill at this moment. As a journalist, I’m steamin’ mad right now, because the last thing we need is a high-profile example of jumping the gun for clicks. As someone teaching future journalists, this is Exhibit A of what will not happen in any classroom of mine. In the meantime, more of us journalists need to become advocates

for our profession. One of the things that newspapers got so wrong during their heyday was the insistence that we shouldn’t promote what we do. The work speaks for itself, editors used to tell us. Do a good job and the readers will find you. Boy, was that a losing strategy. Still, journalists get squeamish at the notion of being activists for anything, for obvious reasons. But that’s what we need to be now. We must let our readers and viewers know how we do what we do and why it matters. It’ll be a slog, if Twitter is any indication. After Trump’s news conference, I tweeted about the importance of being an activist for journalism. Trump supporters climbed all over that one, calling me the kind of stuff best left for those dark fantasies most people don’t say out loud. It’s clear that the angriest of Trump supporters feel emboldened by his election and his behavior ever since. What they don’t seem to understand yet is that so do we. • Connie Schultz is a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and professional in residence at Kent State University’s school of journalism.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Ideas for bringing jobs to DeKalb airports nearby, and having a major uniTo the Editor: I am running for mayor of DeKalb. As I run for this office, I am hearing a clear message that our residents are eager for something different than the same old thing that has always been there. People are telling me that DeKalb needs a change. Jobs are needed, crime needs to be reduced, taxes are too high, street repairs, and the city not being business friendly are at the top of the list. Let me be the first to share some of my ideas. To get more jobs, the first thing is to inventory all the assets that DeKalb has to offer. As vice chair of economic development for the DeKalb County Board, I am already working for more jobs in DeKalb. To get more jobs, it is important to look at our assets and position our city to attract businesses. Our assets include proximity to Chicago, itssuburbs and Rockford, having several

versity in town. High-tech companies need plentiful water (look at Silicon Valley that is desperate for plentiful water – something we have). We have a wide variety of available workers. We have some commercial buildings that can be moved into and Park 88 where companies can build what they need. We have a high-tech Microelectronic Research and Development Laboratory at NIU. We are one of only a few cities that have the trunk lines of fiber optic already underground throughout the county. We have a wonderful library, and a new high school. For recreation, we have wonderful forest preserves, bike trails and a skateboard park. DeKalb has all of this to offer with a small-town feel. After identifying our assets, the next step is to look to see if we have any ordinances that might hold back a company from choosing DeKalb. I have worked on changing the county’s code to include agribusi-

ness. This allows farmers and others to not only grow crops, but also to sell other items as well. So if you grow soybeans and want to sell a product that is made from soy, such as soy protein powder for protein drinks, the county now has a code that allows agribusiness. Making changes to the municipal code does not cost the taxpayers, but can encourage business in DeKalb. In my next letter to the editor, I’ll share more of my ideas. Please send me your thoughts at citizensformisty@gmail.com. Misty Haji-Sheikh DeKalb

‘Christian persecution’ a false controversy

To the Editor: I’d strongly prefer not to see more hysterical, risible articles on the topic of “Christian persecution” littering your newspaper, as did the piece from Star

Parker (“Christian persecution a rising problem in America,” page 12, Tuesday, Jan. 11). The author assumes she speaks for all who call themselves Christians, while offering a narrow view of the faith, presumably based on a very small number of well-known biblical verses. She does not, any more than would someone who advocates slavery based on the numerous biblical passages (including Gospel verses) regarding the treatment of slaves. I find her presumption to be wrongheaded and her argument better suited for a meeting of her fellow believers. The headline, alleging a rising problem of said persecution, which was presumably written by a member of your staff rather than the author, only serves to exacerbate the situation and create a false narrative and controversy.

Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation Council Secretary Camilla Wishkeno-Chouteau (left) and Council Member Thomas Wabnum (right) recently presented a donation to Flewellin Memorial Library Director Janet Clark.

Library receives donation from Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation DAILY CHRONICLE The Flewellin Memorial Library in Shabbona received a $5,000 donation from the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation that will be used to support youth programs and the nonfiction collection of the library. The donation was presented during a recent visit at which tribal leaders and library officials discussed the vital role education plays in connecting cultures. The Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation has long supported the library’s educational mission and dedication to preserving local history. The latest donation was delivered by PBPN Council Secretary Camilla Wishkeno-Chouteau and council member Thomas Wabnum following their tour of the library with Director Janet Clark. “As a rural library in a small town we feel an obligation to serve as a community center,” Clark said in a news release. “It’s wonderful that the PBPN recognizes our contributions and wants to help us in our mission. We are very grateful for their support.” During the November visit, the tribal leaders and Clark examined the library’s young readers collection, which provides a critical

resource for children, as well as the literature and reference collection focused on Native American culture and history in the region. They discussed the history of the Potawatomi people in Shabbona, the tribe’s commitment to educating young people and the vital role education plays in connecting cultures and encouraging understanding of each other. “We’re very impressed with your children’s collection,” Wishkeno-Chouteau said in the release. “The earlier we as educators get to children, the better for them. It is about our youth. And it does take a village.” “We have always felt that we are part of the community,” Wabnum said in the release. “Education is the key to tie our worlds together.” Library Board President David Highland said the library is wholly funded by local residents and donations. It is a key educational and cultural resource in the town of about 900 residents. “You have been great neighbors,” Highland said of the tribe. “It means a lot to the library.” The library is located at 108 W. Comanche Ave. in downtown Shabbona. For more information, visit www.shabbonalibrary.org.

Scout earns Eagle rank

Sycamore Lions donate to food pantries

DAILY CHRONICLE

Jared Bunge, a member of Boy Scout Troop 2810, chartered at Salem Lutheran Church in Sycamore, was recently awarded Eagle, the highest rank achievable in scouting. Bunge is the son of Kevin and Jean Bunge of Clare. Bunge joined Troop 2810 as a new scout, and despite no Cub Scout experience he quickly became very involved. He has held the positions of senior patrol leader, instructor and troop guide and has attended National Advanced Youth Leadership Experience and the National Youth Leadership Training as both a participant and staff member. Bunge has earned 29 merit badges so far in his scouting career with robotics, wilderness survival, and first aid being his favorite badges. He enjoyed attending many campouts, activities and Canyon Camp Summer Camp. His favorite experiences have been two high adventure trips to Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico. He is looking forward to attending the National Jamboree this summer in West Virginia as a Senior Patrol Leader. As an alum of West Elementary, Bunge had established a close relationship with Mary Currie, the longtime principal of the school. When she unexpectedly died soon after retirement, Bunge chose to honor her legacy and love of literature with a book drive as his Eagle project. With the assistance of his former fifth-grade teacher Pam Webb and his fellow scouts, Bunge set out to collect 300 books. He surpassed his goal and collected nearly 3,500 books to distrib-

KC Phlebotomy Tech program hosts pinning ceremony DAILY CHRONICLE The Kishwaukee College Phlebotomy Technician Program hosted a pinning ceremony on Dec. 21 on campus. Nine students completed the Phlebotomy Tech program: Courtney Bangert, Brighton; Tyler Barton, Sycamore; Yessenia Castillo, DeKalb; William Corbett, DeKalb; Shayna Ferguson, DeKalb; Jennifer Marshall, Kirkland; Sheri Sanders, Rochelle; Alondra Serriteno, Cortland; and Kerren Wallace, Belvidere. Pinning ceremonies are a tradition in healthcare professions, the practice can be traced to recognition of people who provided nursing care as far back as the Crusades. Modern pinning ceremonies were revived and became a common practice after Florence Nightingale began rewarding nursing grad-

uates with the Red Cross of St. George after the Crimean War in the mid19th century. The tradition has since become a common practice in other healthcare professions. Instructor for the Phlebotomy Technician Program is Corie Thibeault. Phlebotomist technicians are healthcare professionals who obtain and prepare specimens for laboratory processing. Traditionally, phlebotomist technicians are associated with drawing and preparing blood in hospitals, clinics or physician’s offices. Phlebotomists may be employed in a wide variety of fields that work with any bodily fluids that can be laboratory tested. For more information on the program, contact Melissa Gallagher, coordinator of Short Term Training, at 815-825-9466 or at melissa.gallagher@ kishwaukeecollege.edu.

BOYS BASKETBALL: DeKALB 56, WAUBONSIE VALLEY 37

Sisson the hot hand for Barbs Senior has 3rd straight double-double; Barbs win 4th in a row By JESSE SEVERSON

jseverson@shawmedia.com DeKALB – The first possession of the game set the tone for the DeKalb boys basketball team. Senior big man Darvon Sisson opened the game with a two-handed dunk and recorded his third consecutive double-double as the Barbs pulled away for a 56-37 nonconference victory over Waubonsie Valley on Thursday night. “It’s been a pretty hot three games,” said Sisson, who had 15 points and 12 rebounds. “It’s been preparation and being more patient in the post and seeing what I have.” The Barbs (11-3) have won four in a row, and defense has been a major reason. The Barbs allowed 37 points in three of the wins – against Waubonsie Valley on Thursday and Schurz and Lemont at the Chuck Dayton Classic – and held Sterling to 38 points in a victory Jan. 6. “We preach great defense, and we always play great defense, we try to at least,” DeKalb senior guard Cole Tucker said. “If you hold a team to under 40, you have a great chance to win every time.” Sisson was one of three players in double figures for the Barbs, along with senior guards Michael Mitchell (13 points) and Tucker (10). DeKalb junior guard Michael Vilet added nine points and four rebounds. Waubonsie Valley (7-9) got a teamhigh 11 points from sophomore guard Eric Cannon, including three 3-pointers, while big man Chuck Robinson had 10 points and eight rebounds before fouling out. “They have a kid coming off a 26-point game in Robinson last week, ... (and) our game plan was to go right at him and get him in foul trouble,” DeKalb coach Al Biancalana said. The Barbs led nearly wire-to-wire, with the Warriors only taking the lead once the entire game. With DeKalb leading by one midway through the second quarter, a layup by Robinson gave the Warriors a 16-15 lead with 5:34 remaining. However, DeKalb answered by scoring 10 straight points – 3-pointers by Vilet and Mitchell, a running layup by Tucker and a layup by junior post Marcus Bobo – as part of a 16-3 run, and

“I told the guys before the game that I still feel like we have another level to ascend to. I don’t think we’ve played our best basketball.” Al Biancalana

the Barbs kept their lead the rest of the way. “I thought it was a very business-like approach tonight,” Biancalana said. “I think that epitomizes what kind of team we have. We just grinded it out, possession by possession, took care of the basketball.” By the numbers: It was a relatively clean game between the teams. Neither side committed a turnover in the first quarter and combined for 14 on the night – six for DeKalb and eight for Waubonsie Valley.

Beyond the stats: The Barbs will play seven consecutive games on the road – including four in three days this weekend in the MLK tournament at Hononegah. They said it: “I told the guys before the game that I still feel like we have another level to ascend to. I don’t think we’ve played our best basketball,” Biancalana said. Up next: DeKalb plays Zion-Benton on Saturday at the Hononegah MLK Tournament.

Smart move for NFL: 2nd Chicago franchise I don’t understand the obsession NFL owners have with moving their teams to Los Angeles. Don’t they know that’s been tried before? The Rams moved to L.A. this season and already are noticing that people aren’t showing up to their games. The team was getting better TV ratings this year in the city it left, St. Louis, than in its new home market of Los Angeles. If the Chargers were smart, they wouldn’t be lining up to settle in the land of empty seats. They’d be trying to bring their team to Illinois. If there’s a city in America that should have two NFL teams and doesn’t, it’s Chicago. Sure, Chicago is a Bears town and has been since the Cardinals left after the 1959 season. (Actually, it was a Bears town long before then, hence the Cardinals’ departure.) But look at the 3-13 season Bears fans have just endured. When the Bears were getting crushed in a nearly unwatchable, meaningless game against a mediocre Washington team in Week 16, wouldn’t it have been great if Chicago had another team to watch? The Bears also have missed the playoffs in nine out of the past 10 years, and have gone 6-15 against the Green Bay Packers during that time. The Packers even eliminated the Bears in the Bears’ lone playoff year. Would the Bears feel a little more pressure to get their act together if they had a crosstown rival playing winning football? I’ll bet they would.

VIEWS Eric Olson It would be great to have the NFL played in Chicago every weekend, just as Major League Baseball is. If the new team had a different stadium with a retractable roof, it’s safe to say that they probably would have an identity distinctly different from the Bears we know and love. The demand for live football well outstrips the supply in the Chicago market. The seating capacity at the remodeled Soldier Field is only 61,500, making it one of the smallest stadiums in the league serving one of the country’s biggest cities. (By comparison, the capacity of the Green Bay Packers’ Lambeau Field is 80,735.) Put a second NFL team in Chicago, or its suburbs, and it would have a home for as long as it cared to stay. Maybe build a stadium with a retractable roof, something where we could bring a Super Bowl to Illinois for the first time ever. Win a Super Bowl in Chicago, and the fans will love you forever, no matter if you’ve been here for a season or a century. Maybe if we start working on a plan now, we could have something ready when one of the new L.A. teams decides to leave in five years.

20 WRESTLING: SYCAMORE 49, MORRIS 22

Spartans end regular season with ‘W’ Now gear up for postseason, with conference meet next weekend By EDDIE CARIFIO

ecarifio@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – It still is more than a week away, but after a 49-22 dual win against Morris on Thursday, the Sycamore wrestling team has entered postseason mode. The Spartans’ Northern Illinois Big 12 East victory was their last dual of the regular season. Next up is the conference tournament, Jan. 21 at Kaneland. “Right now their eyes are on the prize, hopefully,” said assistant coach Alex Nelson, filling in for head coach Brian Davis. “Have a great conference showing, have a great regional, and, obviously, advance to sectionals. I know their goals are to make the state tournament, and next week is the first step to that. Hopefully, we can get a good week of practice out of them.” Trevor Boryla started the dual for the Spartans with a pin at 106 pounds, needing only 1:38 to secure the win. He

“Right now their eyes are on the prize, hopefully. Have a great conference showing, have a great regional, and, obviously, advance to sectionals. I know their goals are to make the state tournament, and next week is the first step to that. Hopefully, we can get a good week of practice out of them.” Alex Nelson Sycamore assistant wrestling coach

got three takedowns before getting the pin. Nelson said the goal for some of his top wrestlers was to work on technique before going for the pin.

“I was looking to come in and get the pin for the team, get six points for us,” Boryla said. “Feeling prepared for that tournament. I feel like I’ve worked really hard for conference, regionals, sectionals and state.” Artimus Cunningham also worked on his takedown technique, recording five of them before pinning his 170-pound opponent in 1:03. Joey Beaudoin, wrestling at 220 for the Spartans, got a pin in the final match in 1:35 before Sycamore won by a forfeit at heavyweight. At 182, Sycamore’s Matthew Hunter went up against the No. 1-ranked wrestler in the state in Class 2A, Cody Baldridge. It took Baldridge about 40 seconds to get his first points, and Hunter kept it close despite not getting a takedown. A takedown with seven seconds left gave Baldridge the major decision win, 15-7. Nelson said the team is in decent shape heading into the conference tournament. “I thought we wrestled well, although we were a little tentative at some weights,” Nelson said. “I wanted the guys to pull the trigger and shoot a little bit more. That’s something we

BOYS BOWLING: NORTHERN ILLINOIS BIG 12 CONFERENCE TOURNAMENT

have to get after here in the next week as conference is coming up.” By the numbers: Winners for the Spartans were Boryla (pin at 106 in 1:38), Justin Silbaugh (3-0 at 126), Noah Willard (5-3 in overtime at 132), Bradford Edwards (9-0 at 138), Zak Kozumplik (12-6 at 152), Cunningham (pin at 170 in 1:03) and Beaudoin (pin at 220 in 1:35). Brendon Shuman, Chad Schap and Sean Peek won by forfeit for the Spartans. Beyond the stats: Willard trailed 3-0 at the end of the second period, but got an escape and takedown with 47 seconds left in the third to force overtime. He got the winning takedown early in the sudden death extra period. They said it: “Nothing’s given to you right now,” Nelson said after the team’s regular-season finale. “It’s kind of like the second season starting up here, is how you explain it to them. Everything before this is kind of wiped away and we have the second season here with conference, regionals, sectionals and state.” Up next: The Spartans are off until the Northern Illinois Big 12 tournament, Jan. 21 at Kaneland. Morris heads to the Illinois Classic on Friday and Saturday at Lincoln-Way East.

PREP ROUNDUP

Sycamore wins league title Galauner, Nay Spartans outscore runner-up LaSalle-Peru by 441 pins By JOHN BUTKUS

sports@daily-chronicle.com DeKALB – The Sycamore boys bowling team won the Northern Illinois Big 12 Conference tournament Thursday at Mardi Gras Lanes. The Spartans dominated with 7,518 total pins, 441 more than second-place LaSalle-Peru. After leading by 211 pins after three games, the Spartans finished fourth out of seven teams in the fourth game, but rallied and won the final two games by a combined 237 pins to capture the hardware. “It was a great day for us,” Sycamore coach Aaron Williams said. “I do think we could’ve been better in a couple of the games. We kind of slacked off a little bit, but, overall, I think it was a really

good day.” The regular-season and conference tournament champion Spartans play in the Oregon Regional on Saturday with a lot of momentum. Sycamore’s top two individual bowlers Thursday were Austin Verheaghe (1,358, second place overall) and Kobey Dodson (1,356, third place). “The confidence I have in this team comes from them being all seniors,” Williams said. “These guys have been there before, and they know how to act while we’re there and how to prepare. They’ve been really consistent this year.” A young DeKalb team finished in fifth place with 6,657 pins, which was 1,116 pins ahead of sixth-place Rochelle. Geneseo was disqualified. DeKalb’s top bowler was Logan Zarek, who

finished in fourth place with 1,267 pins. DeKalb also will participate in the Oregon Regional, and coach Allen Collins has confidence in his team. “I’m totally ecstatic about how the boys bowled today,” Collins said. “We bowled some of the best rounds of the season today, and doing that heading into the regional this weekend, it’s exactly what I could’ve hoped for. We’ve worked hard all year and got better as the season progressed, so that provides great momentum. We were 26 pins out of third place after five games, but I guess they just got a little tired and couldn’t quite finish it. Just the general competition we saw today preps us for regional, and I’ll mention Sycamore, because when you bowl against them anywhere it’s tough and they have a great team. Anytime you bowl against them, you have a fight on your hands.”

KNICKS 104, BULLS 89

entering free agency this summer. In Rose’s world, however, obvious tends to elude him. “When I was in the room, I felt like they understood where I was coming from,” Rose said when asked whether he might have burnt his New York

ing with the Bulls, even when his surgically repaired knees were better, and now once again is playing above the rim with New York. The explanation? “When you’re in here, the fans, the excitement in the building, it makes you feel young again,” Rose said. So there’s that. Playing the Bulls (19-21), obviously, has that effect on him, as well, with Rose scoring 15 in the first meeting, and then what he did in the rematch. However, there was much less resistance Thursday, with the Bulls without Jimmy Butler, Nikola Mirotic and Denzel Valentine because of flu-like symptoms. That meant starting seldom-used rookie Paul Zipser, who finished with seven points. “He looked me right in the eye and said, ‘I’ll be ready, coach,’ ” Fred Hoiberg said of giving the news to Zipser.

NEW YORK – Derrick Rose still was haunting his old team. Facing the Bulls for the second time since an offseason trade, Rose scored 17 points, helping the Knicks to a 10489 win Thursday at Madison Square Garden. Unfortunately for Rose, he also is haunting his current team. The one-time Chicago Simeon graduate was four days removed from going AWOL before New York’s Monday night game with New Orleans, flying back to Chicago because of “a family issue,” but doing so without notifying the team or asking permission. Rose eventually was tracked down, but not before Knicks officials sent a staff member to his New York apartment to make sure he wasn’t in serious trouble. Rose returned the next

bridge for an extension. “I hope one incident didn’t change their mind. Who knows? This is a business. If it was to happen, I still would want to play the way I normally know how to play wherever I’m at.” Rose also said he didn’t regret what he did and wouldn’t change a thing. “Family over everything,” Rose said. Maybe so, but his timing to put family over even a phone call to his bosses couldn’t have been worse, especially with Rose reportedly seeking a max contract this offseason, which would pay him close to $150 million over five years. Rose, however, didn’t feel like he damaged his standing around the league, either. “Like who?” he replied, when asked whether that was a concern. “With me missing one day and just leaving? You probably have to ask them.” One thing Rose did clear up? He basically stopped dunk-

ASK THE DOCTORS Robert Ashley woman has only about a 1 percent chance of developing it. To truly study a potential link between ovarian cancer and talcum powder, you would need large studies. You also would need prospective studies. A prospective study in this case would assess talcum powder use and follow women over time to see whether they developed ovarian cancer. Several studies have attempted to do this. The Nurses’ Health Study included 78,683 women followed for nearly 13 years. These women were asked about their use of talcum powder and, over the course of 13 years, 307 cases of ovarian cancer were found. Note that researchers did not find talcum powder to be associated with ovarian cancer, although they did find a 9 percent increase among women who used talcum powder. The Women’s Health Initiative included 61,000 women followed for more than 12 years. In that study, researchers also found a minimal increase in ovarian cancer, but not a statistically significant one. The biggest problem with these prospective studies is they need to be even larger and longer. It’s possible there is a minimal increase in ovarian cancer among menstruating women who use talcum powder. However, this may have more historical relevance than topical relevance because fewer women are using talcum powder today than in years past. If you do use a genital powder, cornstarch powder would be a good alternative to talc. • Send your questions to askthedoctors@ mednet.ucla.edu or write Ask the Doctors, c/o Media Relations, UCLA Health, 924 Westwood Blvd., Suite 350, Los Angeles, CA 90095.

Dear Doctor: Some women, and juries, say talc causes ovarian cancer, but doctors say it doesn’t. Where’s the evidence either way? Dear Reader: Talc is a mineral composed of magnesium and silicate. Talcum powder, commonly known as baby powder, was first marketed by Johnson & Johnson in 1894. It first was used, and still is used, to prevent diaper rash. The concern regarding ovarian cancer is talc may pass into a woman’s uterus and then move up the fallopian tubes during menses. In fact, talc particles have been found in the fallopian tubes of women who have used talcum powder on sanitary napkins or pads. The suggestion that talcum powder may lead to ovarian cancer first came from case-control studies. The largest of these was a combined analysis of eight different studies that compared 8,525 women (cases) who had ovarian cancers and 9,859 women (controls) who did not. In the studies, researchers asked women if they had used talcum powder in the genital area previously and how frequently. The authors concluded the use of genital powder was associated with a 20 to 30 percent increase in some types of ovarian cancer. One problem with that analysis is some powders contain cornstarch, not talc. The other problem is of recall bias. Women with ovarian cancer may report previous use of powders because they believe there may be a link between the powder and their ovarian cancer. Other case-control studies have come up with similar conclusions. Based on such data, many lawsuits have contended a link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer. Two of these lawsuits have led to judgments of $72 million and $55 million against Johnson & Johnson. One difficulty with analyzing statistical links to ovarian cancer is the disease is somewhat rare; over her lifetime, the average

Gist of a Dear John letter

P E R C E N T

need your help in dealing with an old “frenemy.” “Jenny” and I were friends in high school, but she constantly berated me and accused me of taking advantage of her. After she went away to college, she got pregnant by a non-boyfriend. When she had an abortion, she swore me to secrecy because she didn’t tell the father. Shortly thereafter, he came to me and tricked me into telling him. To this day, Jenny still blames me and says I was out to get her and ruin her life. Jenny spread rumors about me around our group of friends, on the internet, and told my mom horrible lies about me. She even threatened a lawsuit. Ten years later, she still pops up out of the blue to attack me. A year ago, she sent me a message saying she wished I had died in a tornado that struck my area. I never respond because that’s what she wants. She pops up at the worst times and makes me feel worse. How should I deal with her? – At A Boiling Point In Tennessee Dear Boiling: Continue to ignore this troubled woman. Block her anywhere you can, and delete any messages that leak through so you won’t have to see them. If you have mutual friends who don’t know the whole story, you should have enlightened them years ago – and the same goes for your mother. Jenny appears to have serious issues. She isn’t a “frenemy.” She is strictly bad news, so recognize it and move on. Dear Abby: While preparing a letter at work, I noticed it was going to be mailed to a married lesbian couple. What’s the proper way to address a gay couple? – Proper In Illinois Dear Proper: According to Steven Petrow’s “Complete Gay and Lesbian Manners,” the correct way to address the envelopes of married gay and lesbian couples should be (in alphabetical order): Mr. Bradley Burch and Mr. Mark Foster Ms. Cecelia Carter and Ms. Diane Grant Or, if the couple shares the same last name: Mr. Bradley and Mr. Mark Burch Ms. Cecelia and Ms. Diane Carter Dear Abby: Now that I’m older, I often find it hard to remember all the names and amounts of my prescriptions when I visit my various doctors. To help myself, I carry in my wallet a small copy of a spreadsheet listing all my medication information. That way, I can give accurate details to the physician. I’d like to pass my solution on to other readers who might have the same need to be precise and up-to-date when visiting the doctor. – In

Will Rogers said, “Politics has become so expensive that it takes a lot of money even to be defeated.” Isn’t that the truth? At the bridge table, though, we try to defeat declarer by assuming partner has the cheapest hand to achieve that end. This deal occurred during the World Youth Teams Championship in Italy last year. At the first table, North-South had made three notrump. Let’s see how Harald Eide (East) and Christian Bakke from Norway worked out what to do. The auction was optimistic. North really should have passed over one diamond with that 4-3-3-3 garbage. When she dragged up a one-heart response, South’s two-no-trump rebid indicated a strong hand with long diamonds. North’s three diamonds was weak and denied five hearts. West led the spade three, not the ideal start. South took East’s jack with his ace and returned a spade to dummy’s 10, East playing the seven: high-low with a remaining doubleton. Now declarer led a diamond to his queen, East playing the two, upside-down count. What did Bakke do after winning with his king? He realized that declarer had started with 3-1-6-3 or 3-2-6-2 distribution, and that his side needed to take four heart tricks now. If South had a low doubleton, West had to shift to a low heart. But Bakke decided that declarer was more likely to be 1-3 than 2-2 in the rounded suits, so he led the heart king to swallow South’s queen and collect the necessary number of tricks.
