Wash. court rules against READER POLL florist in gay wedding case By RACHEL LA CORTE The Associated Press

OLYMPIA, Wash. – The Washington Supreme Court ruled unanimously Thursday that a florist who refused to provide services for a same-sex wedding broke the state’s antidiscrimination law, although she claimed doing so would violate her religious beliefs. A lower court had fined Barronelle Stutzman, a florist in Richland, Washington, for denying service to a gay couple in 2013, and ordered her to pay a $1,000 fine. Stutzman argued that she was exercising her First Amendment rights. But the court held that her floral arrangements do not constitute protected free speech, and that providing flowers to a same-sex wedding would not serve as an endorsement of same-sex marriage. “As Stutzman acknowledged at deposition, providing flowers for a wedding between Muslims would not necessarily constitute an endorsement of Islam, nor would providing flowers for an atheist couple endorse atheism,” the opinion said. Stutzman’s lawyers immediately said they would ask the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the decision. “It’s wrong for the state to force any citizen to support a particular view about marriage or anything else against their will,” Stutzman’s attorney, Kristen Waggoner, wrote in a statement issued after the ruling. “Freedom of speech and religion aren’t subject to the whim of a majority; they are constitutional guarantees.” It’s one of several lawsuits around the country – including some involving bakers – about whether businesses can refuse to provide services over causes they disagree with, or whether they must serve everyone equally.

A Colorado case involving a baker who would not make a wedding cake for a samesex couple is pending before the U.S. Supreme Court, according to Lambda Legal. In 2014, the court declined to hear an appeal of a case out of New Mexico that went against a photographer who denied a same-sex couple service. Gov. Jay Inslee lauded Thursday’s ruling, saying it was “in favor of equality for all Washingtonians.” “By ruling that intolerance based on sexual orientation is unlawful, the Court affirmed that Washington state will remain a place where no one can be discriminated against because of who they love,” Inslee said in a written statement. Stutzman had previously sold the couple flowers and knew they were gay. However, Stutzman told them that she couldn’t provide flowers for their wedding because same-sex marriage was incompatible with her Christian beliefs. Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson and the couple sued her, saying she broke state anti-discrimination and consumer protection laws, and the lower court agreed. The state’s nine high court justices upheld that verdict. The court rejected several arguments put forth by Stutzman, including the assertion that since other florists were willing to serve the couple, no harm occurred. “As every other court to address the question has concluded, public accommodations laws do not simply guarantee access to goods or services. Instead, they serve a broader societal purpose: eradicating barriers to the equal treatment of all citizens in the commercial marketplace,” the court wrote. “Were we to carve out a patchwork of exceptions for ostensibly justified discrimination, that purpose would be fatally undermined.”

60th annual Genoa Chamber Dinner honors community By DREW ZIMMERMAN GENOA – Awards presented in recognition of service to the city of Genoa at the Chamber of Commerce’s 60th annual Dinner and Awards Ceremony on Thursday left some recipients in tears. The event was held at the Custom Aluminum Products building at 312 Eureka St. in Genoa. Special praise and a standing ovation were given to Roger and Joanne Watson, who were the only individual recipients of the chamber’s Ambassador Award, for their decades of service to Genoa. Joanne, who moved with her husband, Roger, to Genoa in 1964 and worked with him to found the Kishwaukee Valley Historical Society, said the award means a lot, and she was completely shocked and surprised, especially after being presented the award by two of her daughters, whom she did not know would be in attendance. Roger, fighting back tears, said he was at a loss for words. Alan Browne Chevrolet, which held a successful toy drive during Christmas; the DeKalb County Community Foundation, which has supported city programs; the DeKalb County Nonprofit Partnership, which has aided nonprofit organizations around the county; Genoa-Kingston School District 424, which has expanded student services through various community partnerships; Genoa-Kingston Fire Protection District, which has supported multiple chamber events; and Custom Aluminum Products, which has provided economic growth to Genoa, also were recipients of the Ambassador Award. Genoa Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Cortney Strohacker received a surprise award for excellence in leadership, the first time such an award was presented, leaving her in tears. “She has the ability to take an average team of individuals and transform them into superstars,” said chamber Associate Director

Krissy Johnson, who presented the award. “She has driven the chamber to succeed with her integrity and vision, and no matter how you define leadership, Cortney possesses those qualities.” Strohacker said that she never wants the awards to focus on the chamber, but to be recognized in that way was very special. Other awards included the Excellence Award, which recognizes businesses that enhance the community, whether it be new or improved businesses, renovation and expansion projects or an outstanding achievement within the business community. This year’s recipients were the DeKalb County Economic Development Corp.; Karlsbad Tavern, which underwent a substantial renovation last year; the city of Genoa; KishHealth Systems, which now is a part of Northwestern Medicine; Energym Gymnastics; and Lloyd Landscape and Garden Center. The Outstanding Ambassador of the Year Award went to Sherry Frankenbach, and the Dave Tobinson Award went to Rich Gentile. Anniversaries of chamber members also were highlighted. Among the longest-serving organizations were Tobinson Ace Hardware with 90 years

Ex-gymnastics instructor faces new charges

Sycamore police: 4 more victims found who were students at Energym By BRETT ROWLAND SYCAMORE – Prosecutors filed additional charges Thursday against a former Energym gymnastics instructor that could send him to prison for life after investigators identified four additional victims. Joseph R. Hannon, 21, formerly of the 1700 block of DeKalb Avenue, Sycamore, was charged Thursday with three counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse and a single count of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child. If Hannon is convicted of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child

involving more than one victim, state law requires he be sentenced to life in prison, First Assistant State’s Attorney Stephanie Klein said. The new charges bring the total number of victims to six, all of them students at Energym in Sycamore. Hannon has been in Joseph R. custody at the DeKalb Hannon County Jail since Dec. 7, when he was arrested on charges that he sexually abused a 9-year-old girl during an open gym session Nov. 25 at Energym. That incident was captured on video, police said. Later that month, prosecutors filed more serious charges related to a second victim. Since then, investigators have done additional victim-sensitive interviews with Energym students. From those interviews, police found

that Hannon had inappropriate physical contact with four other children while working at Energym in Sycamore. “We continue to investigate this case so we may identify any additional victims, provide them the necessary resources and support while holding the suspect accountable for his actions,” Sycamore Police Chief Glenn Theriault said Thursday. Klein said all of the victims were girls younger than 13. When Hannon first was arrested, prosecutors said he might have inappropriately touched as many as 30 children. Energym owner Andy Morreale has previously said Hannon was hired without a background check. Hannon had been arrested several times in DeKalb County and was on felony probation for an October 2013 drug case when he was hired. Hannon had

taken classes at Energym, which has locations in Sycamore and Genoa, as a child. Energym hired him part time in September 2015 as a student instructor. In August, he was hired full time. In addition to employing Hannon, Morreale also rented an apartment to him near the gym. The family of a girl who police believe was abused by Hannon has filed a civil suit against Energym Gymnastics Inc., Morreale and Hannon. The suit alleges that Energym and Morreale were negligent in hiring Hannon, that they failed to properly supervise him and bear responsibility for what happened to the girl because the incidents occurred at Energym. Hannon remains in jail in lieu of $2.25 million bond, according to court records. He would have to post $225,000 to be released. A preliminary hearing is set for March 17 in the criminal case.

County Board member from District 2 resigns

time needed for a County Board member with changes in his life,” Pietrowski said in the email. “He related that he was disappointed to have to resign and have it be right at the beginning of his term.” Schmarje could not be reached for comment Thursday. Steve Kuhn, chairman of the DeKalb County Republicans, said precinct committee members will hold a caucus in March and interview candidates who are interested in filling the seat. The details of the caucus will be announced in a public notice within the next few days, he said. The requirements for candidates are that they must live in District 2 of DeKalb County; they must be at least 18 years old, and they must be registered members of the Republican Party, Kuhn said. Because Schmarje was elected as a Republican, his replacement must also be a Republican. Kuhn said after the party recommends a candidate, he or she must gain approval from the County Board. The board chairman has the final decision on who is brought before the board for a vote. The board chairman also may select a candidate; however, Pietrowski is a Democrat and could not recommend a member of his own party, Kuhn said. The person selected by the board would serve until the next election in 2018, Pietrowski said.

• Friday, February 17, 2017

A recently elected DeKalb County Board member has resigned from his seat in District 2, and a caucus will be held in March to identify a potential candidate to fill the vacancy. Jonathan Schmarje, a Republican, was elected in November to represent District 2, which includes Genoa and Kingston. He was a member of the forest preserve committee and the health and human services committee.

The ASSOCIATED PRESS BELLEVILLE – A judge on Thursday denied a request by the Illinois attorney general to stop paying state workers unless lawmakers resolve an ongoing budget impasse. Attorney General Lisa Madigan said she will appeal the judge’s ruling, noting the state’s constitution requires an enacted appropriation for state spending. “Under the current injunction, the state has spent over $3 billion in taxpayer money without any transparency or legislative debate as required by law,” Madigan said in a statement. “The governor is using this injunction to avoid following the Constitution and enacting a budget, irreparably harming the people of Illinois.” St. Clair County Circuit Judge Robert LeChien refused to reverse a previous court order requiring Illinois to pay state employees in the absence of a spending plan. Madigan argued stopping pay would hasten a budget agreement. Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner has criticized Madigan’s legal move, suggesting the daughter of House Speaker Michael Madigan wanted to create a “crisis” that would shut down the government.

College admissions bill advances in Illinois House

SPRINGFIELD – An Illinois House committee has cleared a proposal that would require public universities to admit first-time freshman applicants who finish with a GPA in the top 10 percent of their high school’s graduating class. The House Higher Education Committee passed the bill Wednesday despite opposition from the University of Illinois and the Illinois Board of Higher Education, The News-Gazette reported. Democratic Rep. Andre Thapedi of Chicago sponsored the bill, noting that the University of Illinois’ Urbana campus has 5.4 percent black enrollment. Higher percentages are reported at the school’s Chicago and Springfield campuses. “Clearly, our universities are not diverse,”

“We’re pleased our hard working state employees, who show up to work every day on behalf of the people of Illinois, will continue to be paid,” Rauner said in a statement, adding he hopes Madigan drops her efforts and allow negotiations in the Senate on a balanced budget to succeed. Rauner and Democrats who control the Legislature have been fighting for years over how to balance the budget.

Rauner repeated Wednesday that he will support a tax increase to help close a multibillion-dollar budget deficit, but only if it is accompanied by measures he wants to help businesses, such as reduced workers’ compensation costs. Democrats oppose Rauner’s agenda, with Speaker Madigan calling it “extreme” and harmful to the middle class. Without a budget in place, social service agencies, higher education and

These are kids who are performing in their high schools, but for one reason or another, the universities opt not to admit them. So now we want to give them that opportunity.”

Minn. man shot by Amtrak officer in Chicago dies

CHICAGO – A Minneapolis man who was shot by Amtrak police near Chicago’s Union Station has died. Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said 25-year-old Chad Robertson died Wednesday, one week after being shot. Robertson was taking a bus from Memphis, Tennessee, to Minneapolis and was on a stopover in Chicago when the shooting occurred. According to family members, the transit officer fired at Robertson as he ran during an encounter near Union Station. The officer reportedly fired twice, striking Robertson once in the left shoulder. Guglielmi said the man’s wounds were not considered life-threatening at the time. He said the wounded man was found with cash and narcotics, but was unarmed.

other programs have suffered. Other spending has continued, however, because of court orders or state law. That has included employee pay. Both Democrats and Republicans in the Illinois House said worker paychecks should continue and have introduced separate bills seeking to avert a government shutdown if Madigan’s motion succeeds. Rauner said in a video message to state employees last week that he would veto the Democrat-backed plan, which would appropriate money for state agencies to continue paying employees through the end of the fiscal year June 30. The Republican plan wouldn’t expire at the end of the fiscal year, but it puts the governor’s office and state agencies in charge of deciding how much money employees receive – authority that Democrats are not willing to give. Rauner and the state’s largest public-employee union have been at odds over a new contract, with the governor seeking millions in savings. The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees contends the General Assembly has appropriated funds for the state employee payroll by agreeing to abide by court orders.

Attorney Douglas Hopson of Chicago told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune that Robertson’s family will be considering a wrongful death lawsuit against the officers involved.


Judge rules against effort for elected school board

CHICAGO – A federal judge has rejected an effort by former Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn and some Chicago residents to force the city to adopt an elected school board. Quinn and the residents filed a lawsuit in October contending a school board appointed by Chicago’s mayor violated the constitution and civil rights. They said such a board raises the question of taxation without representation. The lawsuit included a demand that the city and Chicago Board of Education create a plan allowing for the election of school board members. In her ruling issued Monday, U.S. District Court Judge Elaine E. Bucklo rejected those claims. She said the plaintiffs have no fundamental right to vote in school board elections as a matter of law.

NATION & WORLD BRIEFS Man pleads guilty to buying than two years. The bomber entered the main rifles in California attack

RIVERSIDE, Calif. – A California man who bought high-powered rifles used in the San Bernardino terrorist attack pleaded guilty Thursday as the father of one of the victims angrily denounced the plea deal as a “slap on the wrist.” Enrique Marquez Jr. appeared in federal court in Riverside with his hands cuffed and chained to his waist. He sounded choked up after the prosecutor described what he had done. Marquez told the judge he had dropped out of high school and college but understood the allegations and the consequences of the plea agreement with prosecutors that could bring him up to 25 years in prison while sparing him a trial. Gregory Clayborn, the father of one of the people killed, opposed the deal in an impassioned plea to the judge before the hearing. “This man supplied these murderers with these weapons and he’s going to get a slap on the wrist, your honor,” Clayborn said, his voice cracking as he described the pain of losing his 27-year-old daughter, Sierra.

Trump raps ‘criminal’ leaks, ‘dishonest’ media By JULIE PACE

The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Aggrieved and spoiling for a fight, Donald Trump used a marathon encounter with reporters Thursday to denounce the “criminal” leaks that took down his top national security adviser and revived questions about his own ties to Russia. But he offered only a lawyerly denial that his campaign aides had been in touch with Russian officials before last fall’s election. “Nobody that I know” he said in the first full-length news conference of his presidency. The 77-minute event amounted to a free-wheeling airing of complaints, with the new president attempting to find his footing after the rockiest launch in recent memory. Trump slammed a “bad court” of appeals judges for blocking his refugee and immigration executive order and denied that his White House was paralyzed by chaos and infighting among top advisers. “This administration is running like a fine-tuned machine,” he boasted. With his signature hyperbole betrayed by reality, Trump said there has never been a president “who in this short period of time has done what we’ve done.” He blamed any problems on the outgoing Obama administration – “I inherited a mess at home and abroad” – and the news media. Standing in the stately, chandeliered East Room, Trump lambasted the “out of control” media – long his favorite foe. He appeared to delight in jousting with reporters, repeatedly interrupting their questions and singling out stories he disagreed with, well aware his attacks were sure to be cheered by loyal supporters who share his views. Polls show Trump retains support among Republicans, and solid majorities of Americans said he is following

President Donald Trump speaks during a news conference Thursday in the East Room of the White House in Washington, D.C. through on his promises and is viewed as a strong leader, according to a Gallup survey. But on other questions Americans express deep reservations. Majorities said he doesn’t inspire confidence and is not honest and trustworthy. Trump’s job approval rating is much lower than those of past presidents at the same point in their administrations. According to a Pew Research Center survey, 39 percent of Americans approve of his job performance while 56 percent disapprove. Trump’s first month in office has been chaotic by any measure – a flurry of self-inflicted wounds and poorly executed policy. On Monday, he demanded the resignation of his national security adviser Michael Flynn after revelations that Flynn misled Vice President Mike Pence about his contacts with Russia. The next day, The New York Times reported that multiple Trump advisers were in touch with Russian intelligence advisers during the election campaign. Trump panned the report as “fake news” and said he had “nothing to do with Russia.” “To the best of my knowledge no person that I deal with does,” he said.

That answer, couched with a caveat similar to one routinely used by witnesses testifying under oath, appeared to give him wiggle room. The president more clearly defended Flynn’s calls with Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. during the transition period after his November victory. He said that while he did not tell his adviser to discuss sanctions with the envoy, “I would have directed him if he didn’t do it.” The president said that while Flynn was “just doing his job,” he was “not happy” that the adviser had misled the vice president. Trump knew for some time that Flynn had given Pence an inaccurate accounting of his discussions with Russia, but the president did not tell his No. 2 for about two weeks, according to a timeline supplied by the White House. The president has yet to announce Flynn’s replacement. His top choice, Vice Admiral Robert Harward, turned down the job Thursday, largely because of family concerns, according to a White House official who would not be named because Harward’s decision has not been publicly announced.

12 Protesters participate in a march aimed squarely at President Donald Trump’s efforts to crack down on immigration Thursday in Chicago. AP photo

Immigrants across U.S. take day off to protest By ERRIN HAINES WHACK The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA – The heart of Philadelphia’s Italian Market was uncommonly quiet. Fine restaurants in New York, San Francisco and the nation’s capital closed for the day. Grocery stores, food trucks, coffee shops, diners and taco joints in places like Chicago, Los Angeles and Boston shut down. Immigrants around the U.S. stayed home from work and school Thursday to demonstrate how important they are to America’s economy, and many businesses closed in solidarity, in a nationwide protest called A Day Without Immigrants. The boycott was aimed squarely at President Donald Trump’s efforts to step up deportations, build a wall at the Mexican border and close the nation’s doors to many travelers. Organizers said they expected thousands to participate or otherwise show support. It was unclear how many people participated, but in many cities, the actions were disruptive, if not halting. More actions are being planned for May 1 – known as May Day, the internationally recognized holiday honoring workers. “I fear every day whether I am going to make it back home. I don’t know if my mom will make it home,” said Hessel Duarte, a 17-year-old native of Honduras who lives in Austin, Texas, with his family and skipped class at his high school to take part in one of several rallies held around the country. Duarte said he arrived in the U.S. at age 5 to escape gang violence. The protest even reached into the U.S. Capitol, where a Senate coffee shop was among the eateries that were closed when employees did not show up at work. Organizers appealed to immigrants

from all walks of life to take part, but the effects were felt most strongly in the restaurant industry, which has long been a first step up the economic ladder for newcomers to America with its many jobs for cooks, dishwashers and servers. Restaurant owners with immigrant roots of their own were among those acting in solidarity with workers. Expensive restaurants and fast-food joints alike closed, some perhaps because they had no choice, others because of what they said was sympathy for their immigrant employees. Sushi bars, Brazilian steakhouses, Mexican eateries and Thai and Italian restaurants all turned away lunchtime customers. “The really important dynamic to note is this is not antagonistic, employee-against-employer,” said Janet Murguia, president of the Hispanic rights group National Council of La Raza. “This is employers and workers standing together, not in conflict.” She added: “Businesses cannot function without immigrant workers today.” At a White House news conference held as the lunch-hour protests unfolded, Trump boasted of his border security measures and immigration arrests of hundreds of people in the past week, saying, “We are saving lives every single day.” Since the end of 2007, the number of foreign-born workers employed in the U.S. has climbed by nearly 3.1 million to 25.9 million; they account for 56 percent of the increase in U.S. employment over that period, according to the Labor Department. About 12 million people are employed in the restaurant industry, and immigrants make up the majority – up to 70 percent in places such as New York and Chicago, according to the Restaurant Opportunities Centers United, which works to improve working conditions.

Protection still needed

Watch your wallet, because Congress is coming after the federal watchdog set up after last decade’s financial crisis to police against rip-offs of borrowers and buyers in the wilds of American commerce. Dubbing the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau “a rogue federal agency” and claiming its law enforcement harms Americans’ ability to borrow money, Texas Rep. Jeb Hensarling, chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, proposes to shut it down and, first, eject its director, Richard Cordray. Why? Because, by all accounts, Cordray, the former attorney general of Ohio, has become too effective – securing important wins and pushing tough fights for consumers at a price that law-breaking financial firms don’t care to bear. Such as fining the Wells Fargo bank $100 million last year for its notorious practice of opening hundreds of thousands of secret accounts in customers’ names without their knowledge, carried out by staff hustling to meet sales targets and earn bonuses. Such as fining mortgage lenders for taking illegal kickbacks in exchange for referrals from real estate brokers or for steering borrowers into higher-interest mortgages – the kind of maneuvers that stuck borrowers with unpayable loans in the real estate bubble. Such as shielding millions of student loan borrowers from costly debt-relief scams and corner-cutting billing companies. Such as, this month, ordering earlier Russell Simmons debit card operation UniRush, along with MasterCard, to refund consumers $10 million and fining the companies $3 million more for harm done during a 2015 system breakdown that left tens of thousands unable to access their accounts. All vital work that, before the creation of the CFPB in the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform law, no federal official had the will and wherewithal to do. A Hensarling memo plotting strategy to gut Dodd-Frank reveals plans to severely scale back the bureau’s enforcement powers and allow the director, whose five-year term lasts until 2018, to be fired at will. Surely that has nothing to do with the megabucks the congressman’s campaigns raise from the very financial firms the CFPB targets. Separately, the Texas congressman advertises a gameplan to kill the bureau outright and roll the clock back to the days pre-Dodd-Frank, when consumers were sitting ducks for unscrupulous lenders barely reined in by banking regulators. To bleed the consumers’ top cop to death or to execute it by firing squad: such is the unacceptable choice looming before Congress. Every American who’s ever had a mortgage or a credit or debit card or a student loan should call their representatives in Congress and insist, loud and clear: This transaction will not go through.

Russian communication demands probe The news that members of President Donald Trump’s circle had repeated contacts with Russian intelligence officials in the year before the election, reported by the New York Times on Tuesday, might have been less concerning if the president had responded by explaining or condemning the contacts and accepting the need for an impartial investigation. Instead, on Wednesday morning, he dashed off a half-dozen tweets in which he curiously both denied the news and attacked the leakers who disclosed it. In so doing, he gave more cause for Republicans and Democrats to demand answers about his opaque and increasingly troubling ties with Moscow. “The fake news media is going crazy with their conspiracy theories and blind hatred,” Trump tweeted. “This Russian connection non-sense is merely an attempt to cover-up the many mistakes made in Hillary Clinton’s losing campaign.” Then, he insisted, “The real scandal here is that classified information is illegally given out by ‘intelligence’ like candy. Very un-American!” The emerging White House line that questions about a Trump campaign-Russia con-

nection merely reflect a war by the intelligence community on the president makes little sense. In fact, the FBI, not some rogue spy agency, has taken the lead role in investigating contact with Russian officials by associates of Trump. That would be the same agency whose questionable disclosures about its probes of Clinton’s emails may have gained Trump the presidency. Moreover, those who are properly concerned about Trump’s possible connections to the regime of Vladimir Putin are not mere Clinton dead-enders, but a growing and bipartisan list of senators. To be clear, there still is plenty the public does not know. The nature of the apparent communications remains murky. Direct evidence that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian officials to sway the election continues to be lacking. But even the scant details already reported challenge previous assurances from Trump that no one on his staff had contact with the Russians during the campaign. Notably, White House press secretary Sean Spicer echoed those claims Tuesday just before reports emerged suggesting otherwise. His credibility, as is that of the White House as a

whole, has been shattered after less than four weeks on the job. It is heartening to hear the FBI has devoted significant resources to investigating any connections between Trump’s circle and a foreign government committed to weakening the United States and its allies. Because he was so close to the Trump campaign, Attorney General Jeff Sessions should recuse himself from any and all decisions relating to that investigation. Still, the latest news, on the heels of the forced resignation of national security adviser Michael Flynn over contacts with the Russian ambassador, underscores the dire need for a broader, bipartisan probe of Russia’s election-year meddling. Members of the Senate Intelligence Committee insist the panel is working diligently. But there may well be strong political pressure on Republicans to choke the investigation or to keep key findings secret. Senior House Republicans, for example, still seem uninterested in seriously probing these issues. If congressional inquiries ultimately are derailed by politics, an independent commission must be empaneled.

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.

Governor fails to do his job on budget One simple truth shines through all the noise about Illinois’ budget “impasse” that has brought suffering to people all over our state: The Constitution of Illinois mandates in Article 8, Sec. 2: “The Governor shall prepare and submit to the General Assembly, at a time prescribed by law, a state budget for the ensuing fiscal year.” Expenditures cannot exceed revenues. Wednesday was the day the governor is required by law to present his proposed budget. Nowhere in the Illinois Constitution will you find a requirement that the Legislature must agree to any pet projects of the governor before he fulfills his duty to present a budget. The governor has masterfully misled the state into thinking the budget process starts with legislators and that they have failed to propose a budget. Wrong. It is the governor’s job under the Illinois Constitution to start the pro-

GUEST VIEW Susana A. Mendoza cess by presenting an actual document in which he lays out specific cuts he would make to state programs and/ or increases in revenues that would make the numbers add up. Rauner has not done that since he took office. A pledge to “work with” the General Assembly to craft a budget does not fulfill his constitutional obligation. The reason is clear: Doing his job means identifying the unpopular cuts or tax increases he’d have to make, and he is unwilling to face the criticism. He’d rather the other side and he announce a plan simultaneously. He doesn’t have that choice. Being governor means you need to lead. Anything less than a complete document with all the cuts and hikes

spelled out will be more of the same abdication of responsibility that the governor has shown since the day he took office, which is why our backlog of bills has spiked to $11.3 billion in two years. Phony savings projections from pension-reform ideas he knows the courts have already ruled unconstitutional or from union-busting fantasies won’t cut it either. Governor, you don’t need to ask the Legislature for additional authority to make cuts. You have it. Use it. During the governor’s State of the State speech last month, he went “offscript” to thank the leaders of the state Senate for doing his job for him by trying to craft a budget since he refuses to. Then behind the scenes, he apparently sent the shadow organizations he and his close friends fund to try to sabotage the Senate leaders’ efforts. This ruinous path without a real budget that the governor has forced us onto for the past two years has made

all of Illinois’ already-bad problems exponentially worse. From Carbondale to Peoria to Chicago, I hear heartbreaking pleas from Illinois residents suffering from the lack of a budget. Charities are closing programs. Mothers are forced to quit their jobs and go on public assistance because they can’t get child care. Students leave or don’t go to college. State employees put off seeing their doctors who are refusing to treat them because the state can’t pay its bills on time. Businesses have zero economic stability in this state. Enough. Do your job, Governor. Spell out your cuts and revenues. Face the criticism you knew you’d face when you ran for this job. Negotiate. Accept a compromise, sign a balanced budget, and start the healing process.

DAILY CHRONICLE Ryan McNett, son of Chad and Staci McNett, received the Eagle Scout Award as a member in Boy Scout Troop 33, sponsored by the First Lutheran Church in DeKalb. Eagle Scout is Scouting’s highest honor, McNett’s introduction to Scouting began in first grade as a Tiger Cub with Cub Scout Pack 123 in Malta. He earned the highest Cub Scout award, the Arrow of Light. He graduated to Boy Scouting in fifth grade with Troop 33 in DeKalb. Years of adventure in challenging activities marked his journey toward Eagle. Winters included cabin campouts and the Klondike Derby, an annual event where Scouts compete in a variety of skill events. A challenging trip at Snow Base, located near Rice Lake, Wisconsin, included winter survival training, snow hiking, cross country skiing, and building winter shelters, highlighted by sleeping in a snow shelter at a temperature of minus 5 degrees. Ice fishing in Wisconsin included 4,000-acre Lac Vieux Desert where he enjoyed catching northern pike for the troop’s giant fish fry at night. Snowmobiles took him as far north as Lake Superior in Michigan’s upper peninsula. Trips included 100-plus mile and 200-plus mile snowmobile adventures through the north woods of Wisconsin and Michigan. Lake of the Clouds in the Porcupine Mountains and Bond Falls were some of the locations visited. Camp Lowden near Oregon, Illinois, was a weeklong summer camp filled with fun and opportunity. He visited national parks such as: Badlands, Mount Rushmore, Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. Backpacking at Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado was among his adventures. Greater paddling was found on a 50-mile canoe trip at Boundary Waters Canoe Area, with camping and canoeing in the deep wilderness along the U.S.-Canadian border. Mother nature provided unforgettable beauty, abundant wildlife, a rock cliff to jump off, and the challenge of a thunderstorm or two. Another trip involved canoeing 61 miles across the Aftachalaya Swamp in Louisiana. Deep in Cajun country, camping involved jungle hammocks, houseboat overnight, plenty of time

for swimming, stand-up paddle boarding, a blow gun tournament, an air boat ride, swamp fishing, giant Cypress trees, and snakes and alligators to keep things interesting. An important part of Scouting includes community service. McNett worked in numerous local service projects in the DeKalb area each year. He worked disaster relief after Hurricane Sandy; including projects at a retirement center, community park, the property of an elderly couple and supply delivery to three communities in New Jersey. Time was found to visit New York City with the 9/11 Memorial and Times Square among sites visited. Earning the Eagle Scout award includes planning, developing and giving leadership to an Eagle Service Project. McNett’s project involved constructing a storage building for Immanuel Lutheran Church in DeKalb. It began with Scouts hand-digging an excavation for its foundation, then stage by stage, a one-story building 16 feet wide by 20 feet deep, equivalent in size to a two-car garage, his project rose behind the church. McNett holds membership in the Order of the Arrow, Scouting’s national honor society. His leadership in Troop 33 included serving as assistant patrol leader, patrol leader and assistant senior patrol leader. McNett is a junior at DeKalb High School.

Cogs fall short in regional final By ERIC INGLES STERLING – Julie Galauner’s 3-point shooting kept Genoa-Kingston in the game for a while, but eventually the Rock Falls defense was able to close out on her, ending the Cogs’ season with a 54-40 loss Thursday in the final of the 3A Sterling Regional. Galanuner hit four 3-pointers in the first half to go into the break with 14 points, but the No. 3 Rockets held her to two points in the second half, both on free throws. The No. 2 Cogs had trouble getting things going on offense in the second half. They also committed 14 turnovers in the first half and 12 in the second. “We just didn’t take care of the ball and never really got into a rhythm offensively,” G-K coach Kyle Henkel said. “That was the difference tonight.” Five of those G-K turnovers in the game were steals by Rock Falls’ senior point guard Olivia Babcock. In one stretch midway through the fourth quarter, Babcock came away with a steal and a layup, then drew a charge

Moments later, Jesi Nay hit a 3-pointer to bring the Cogs within three at 34-31. That was as close as G-K would get, as its shooting went cold, Babcock grabbed another steal, and

the Rockets went on a 7-0 run. The Cogs got as close as 7 points in the final quarter, but Babcock scored on a putback after a Molly Buck steal, and Babcock and Sigel combined to go 7 of 8 from the free-throw line down the stretch. The Cogs were put together a pair of first-half run, the first sparked by a pair of Galauner 3-pointers “She’s played the game a long time,” Henkel said. “We put the ball in her hands and space the floor and she kind of does her thing.” The second quarter ended with another Cogs’ run, getting back-to-back 3-pointers from Galauner and Taylor Gilbert, followed by a Galauner baseline runner, a pair of free throws by Schwichtenberg, and a basket from Gilbert in the paint. What had been a 23-11 Rock Falls lead early in the second quarter was reduced to a 26-23 lead after two quarters. Sigel finished with 19 points to lead Rock Falls. The junior shooting guard Genoa-Kingston’s Taylor Gilbert shoots in hit five 3-pointers in the game, four of the final seconds of the second quarter them in the first half.

Leman, Hickey, DeKalb-Sycamore have high hopes for state By EDDIE CARIFIO There’s not going to be a lot scoreboard watching for the DeKalb-Sycamore girls gymnastics team Friday at the state championship in Palatine. If the Barbs want to keep an eye on Prairie Ridge, they’ll just have to look in front of them. The Barbs go in with the No. 1 and No. 2 seeds and defending state champion Prairie Ridge will be along side them in the same rotation. The two presumptive favorites drew the same rotation and will start on the beam Friday, with an all-around champion being decided. Also, a clear picture of who’s going to win the team title usually emerges on the first day as well before the tournament concludes Saturday. “They had the second highest score (at a sectional) so it’s nice to see them in the same rotation,” DeKalb coach Andy Morreale said. “The girls all know each other and it should be fun. Hopefully the teams will push each other.” DeKalb won the Glenbard North Sectional last week with a 148.575, with Aleah Leman tying defending state champ Maddie Diab of Glenbard West for the all-around title with a 38.675. At the Fremd regional, Crystal Lake finished with a 147.85, with Nikki Baars sweeping all four events to win the all-around with a 38.4. Morreale said he thinks the allaround title is a three-gymnast battle between Leman, Baars and Diab – although he believes DeKalb-Sycamore

sophomore Maddie Hickey has a shot as well. She claimed the all-around title at the conference tournament and the regional, and was fifth at state last year. “She’s kind of a tiger – she always wants to win,” Morreale said. “You can see it in her personality. I think she’ll be top five for sure but I think she can make a run for that top spot also.” Hickey’s all-around wins were the first of her career, and the first time she finished ahead of Leman. At the conference meet, Leman slipped on the beam, then missed a landing on her floor routine – she’s the defending state champion in that event – at the regional. Morreale said Leman’s co-win at the sectional, against the defending state champ no less, came at the perfect time for the senior. “I think her having a good meet settled her down a bit,” Morreale said of Hickey, who was third on the bars and fifth on the floor last year. “She’s been pressing a little bit, putting too much pressure on herself being a senior.” Leman had a slip-up on the bars last year that kept her from a possible allaround title, finishing third. She was third on the vault and second on the beam “I want to go out there for my team,” Leman said. “I want to go out there and hit everything I can for my team. If it ends up being we’re tied again, that awesome. If it ends up she beats me, that’s Sam Buckner for Shaw Media awesome too cause she really deserves it. I just want to go out there and do my Aleah Leman flips during her balance beam routine Feb. 8 at the Glenbard North sectional. best for my team.”

MESA, Ariz. – Anthony Rizzo is a ground-floor guy with the Cubs’ rebuilding program, so he knows of humble beginnings. Now Rizzo, the Cubs and their fans have a suite in the penthouse after the rebuilding project culminated with a World Series championship. The Cubs have been one of the most beloved franchises in pro sports, much of it stemming from their past reputation as “lovable losers” and a patient and loyal fan base. Now that they’ve won, will success spoil the Cubs? Will they come to be seen as “arrogant,” much as the Boston Red Sox – who broke and 86-year championship drought in 2004 – did after winning three recent titles? “I had an older man in the gym tell me – he was a big Red Sox and Patriots fan – he goes, ‘Yeah, congrats, you guys won one, but you haven’t done anything until the whole country hates you,’ ” Rizzo said Thursday before working out. “In a way, it’s true because growing up a die-hard Dolphin fan, I hated (Patriots quarterback) Tom Brady because he was the best. Now, I’m almost a Patriots fan because he’s so good. • Follow Bruce’s Cubs and baseball “This team has a lot of good person- reports on Twitter @BruceMiles2112.


Shields focused on present By DARYL VAN SCHOUWEN

GLENDALE, Ariz. – James Shields said he has nothing to prove. His skins are on the wall. But the 35-year-old right-hander, who owns a 133-116 record with a 3.91 ERA and nine consecutive seasons with more than 200 innings over an 11-year career with the Rays, Royals, Padres and White Sox, had a disaster of a season in 2016, and he knows it. So he is bent on performing more like the workhorse right-hander the Sox thought they were getting in a mid-season trade with the Padres than what he showed on the South Side last season. “It’s not the first time I’ve had a rough season,” Shields said. “I’ve been in the game a long time. “I have nothing to prove, man. Nothing to prove. My career speaks for itself. I definitely want to prove to White Sox fans who I am. I want to go out and com-

pete this year and do well.” Shields was 4-12 with a 6.77 ERA for the Sox, 6-19 with a 5.85 ERA overall. He was asked Thursday if he was “shocked” at some of the beatings he took last season. Shields kind of laughed at the question. “Yeah, I mean, you know I wish it could have been better,” he said. “I’m a competitor. I don’t like to lose or get hit around like that. Shocking factor? Not really, sometimes those things happen. Unfortunately, it happened too often. But I have a lot of confidence in my ability and what I did this offseason.” Shields will earn $21 million this season in the deal he signed with the Padres in 2015. The Sox will owe him $10 million of that. “I’m trying to put that in the back of my mind and moving forward,” he said. “I had a really bad season in 2010 (5.18 ERA) and a really good season in 2011 (2.82, finishing third in AL Cy Young voting), so we’ll see what happens.”

alities where it’s going to be tough (to hate the Cubs), but that’s the way it goes. If we just respect the game, it’ll make it hard for people to not like us. But it is what it is.ˆ” Of course, after a century of being the butt of jokes for having not won a World Series since 1908 until last year, the Cubs and their fans might enjoy being a little arrogant. It was 10 years ago when then-new manager Lou Piniella talked of developing a “Cubbie swagger.” Piniella’s teams won division titles in 2007 and 2008, but instead of swagger they staggered in the playoffs, getting swept in back-to-back division series. The Cubs got it done last season under manager Joe Maddon, who said he doesn’t mind a little swagger. “Of course,” Maddon said. “It’s all about that. Just go back in history. I’ve often talked about the Dodgers when I came up in the minor leagues. Their uniforms were whiter than everybody else’s. They thought they were better than everybody else, and then they went out and won all the time. And I kind of liked it. I hated it, but I liked it at the same time. The Yankees have developed that kind of a culture.”

22 BULLS 104, CELTICS 103

Butler fouled at buzzer, sinks winning free throws By JEFF ARNOLD For the Sun-Times

Just when it appeared the Bulls’ enigmatic personality had again reared its head, Jimmy Butler came to the rescue. Again. Just as they appeared to be limping – both physically and psychologically – into the All-Star break, the Bulls’ constant came through in the clutch. Again. Butler hit two free throws with 0.9 seconds remaining after his game-winning shot attempt initially fell short as the Bulls handed the Celtics just their second loss in 13 games in a 104-103 thriller Thursday night at the United Center. Butler was awarded the two free throws after game officials reviewed video and determined that Boston’s Marcus Smart had grazed Butler’s elbow on the shot. Just as the Celtics began to celebrate yet another win, the video review changed everything. Butler, who paced the Bulls with 29 points in just his second game back from a heel injury, stepped to the free-throw line and calmly dropped both shots to

give the Bulls their second straight win over one of the Eastern Conference’s elite teams. The Bulls, who moved to within a game of .500 with the win, were finally able to exhale when Al Horford’s jumper from the corner missed its mark as time expired. “It’s big,” said Bulls reserve Bobby Portis, who scored 19 points. “Hopefully, these wins keep propelling us in the second half (of the season).” For all of its drama, however, Thursday’s victory was a portrait of the enigmatic persona the Bulls have played with in a season-long Jekyll and Hyde act. The Bulls struggled early and found a way to rebound. A 10-point, first-half

deficit became a seven-point, third-quarter advantage. And despite allowing the Celtics to draw even and then take the lead in the fourth quarter, the Bulls continued to persistently fight for everything they had when it mattered most. The Bulls chased down missed shots and created second chances. A defense that allowed the Celtics to fire at will in the first quarter locked down and remained within striking distance. After Doug McDermott drew the Bulls to within 103-102, Butler blocked an Isaiah Thomas reverse layup that allowed the Bulls to play for the final shot. Butler watched as the final seconds ticked down before he made his move on Smart, drawing the foul and knocking down the game-winning free throws.

It proved to be the kind of result a Bulls team hit hard by injuries needed at a pivotal time. “It’s just a great win – two good ones heading into the break,” coach Fred Hoiberg said. “We just have to make sure we come back strong. We go into the break strong and come out of it.” The weeklong sabbatical comes at a perfect time and provides the Bulls an opportunity to recover both physically as well as mentally. The break allows guard Dwyane Wade to return from both a wrist injury and the flu, which kept him from playing in Thursday night’s victory. But the break also gives a Bulls team that survived the ups and downs of an inconsistent season a chance to catch its breath and prepare for the regular season’s final 25 games. Veteran forward Taj Gibson is convinced they’re ready for it. Thursday’s win only backed up his confidence. “Every time we play against the top-tier teams – teams that are competing for something – we do well against them; we get up for the challenge,” Gibson said. “We’ve been inconsistent against some of the lower-tier teams, but I’m still optimistic, I’m still positive.”

Little evidence supports CoQ10 Dear Doctor: Many doctors in my area recommend CoQ10 in conjunction with statin drugs to reduce or eliminate muscle pain. It has worked for my wife, and we have heard lots of anecdotal evidence from friends who use it. What’s the evidence behind the use of CoQ10 with statins? Dear Reader: First, let’s take a look at statins. These drugs have been repeatedly shown to lower cholesterol levels – leading to decreased rates of atherosclerosis, heart attacks and strokes – but they can have side effects. The most common side effect I’ve seen among my patients is muscle pain, which is the reason most people stop these very beneficial drugs. Now let’s look at CoQ10. This coenzyme is needed for energy production within muscle cells. Some studies have shown that statins decrease the concentration of CoQ10 in both muscle tissue and in the bloodstream. The hypothesis is that, if you decrease the CoQ10 levels, you reduce the production of energy in muscle cells and they won’t function as well, leading to muscle aches, weakness or inflammation. In extremely severe cases – I’ve seen this in very few of my patients – statins can lead to the death of muscle cells, and a decrease in muscular CoQ10 may be one of the reasons. Massive cell death also can lead to acute kidney failure, but fortunately, in most cases, after stopping the statin and getting intravenous fluids, the patient’s symptoms will quickly improve. As for whether taking CoQ10 can prevent the side effects of statins, the studies of CoQ10 supplementation with statins are small and not conclusive. A 2007 study in the American Journal of Cardiology showed a 40 percent decrease in pain among statin users who took 100

ASK THE DOCTORS Robert Ashley milligrams of CoQ10 daily versus those who took 400 international units (IU) of vitamin E daily. However, there were only 18 people in the group that took CoQ10, so it’s difficult to make an overarching conclusion about CoQ10’s benefits. Other small studies have not shown any benefit from supplementation. A combined analysis of six studies published in 2015 in Mayo Clinical Proceedings found a slight decrease in pain among statin users who took CoQ10, but the decrease was not clinically significant. The authors concluded that a larger study was needed. Based on these studies, and the lack of a large study to evaluate CoQ10, it would be difficult to recommend CoQ10 to prevent muscle pain. However, judging by some of my patients’ experiences and by your wife, some statin users have found significant pain relief with CoQ10. My general thought on the matter is, if you have muscle symptoms with a statin, you should probably change the type of statin you’re getting. Some types, such as rosuvastatin and pravastatin, don’t concentrate in the muscles as much as others, causing fewer muscle problems. Switching to them may have benefit. Taking 100 milligrams of CoQ10 may also have benefit, but again, a large trial will be necessary to further evaluate this.

Orleans Dear Granddad: Whether your granddaughter


People have had scratches on their legs and items of clothing ruined because a dog jumped on them. The problem is some dog owners identify so strongly with their pet they lose the ability to distinguish between it and themselves – and take anything they perceive as a rejection personally. While a guest may be technically on a dog’s turf, that doesn’t mean the guest should be fair game. Considerate hosts control their dog until it has calmed down enough to be properly introduced. Dear Abby: I have a 19-year-old granddaughter who has three tattoos and now a ring in her nose. Any suggestions as to what I might say to her to stop the destruction? – Granddad in New

Dear Abby: DEAR ABBY I have been a vegetarian for 12 Jeanne years. My husPhillips band has been one on and off for five years. I thought our children, 7 and 3, had never had meat in their lives. I recently found out my father-in-law has been feeding them chicken nuggets from fast food. I am very upset about it. It has been six months and I haven’t talked to him since and no longer let my kids go over there without my husband. He texted me an apology that seemed very sarcastic and made me even angrier. Everyone says I need to get over it, but no one has confronted him about it. This has put a strain on my relationship with my husband. Can you please advise me on what to do next? – Furious in the South Dear Furious: Text messages are, by definition, terse. Accept the apology you were given and move forward. That said, however, continue to insist your children be under their father’s supervision when they visit their grandfather because his judgment is questionable, and he already has shown when they are with him, your wishes will not be enforced. Dear Abby: I have had a few negative encounters with dog owners who invited me to their home and became upset because I pushed their pet away when it tried to jump/lick/nudge me (although I do it gently). While I understand I am entering the dog’s territory, I think it’s inconsiderate when pet owners not only refuse to restrain their pets, but also imply I’m somehow a lesser human being because I don’t want my personal space infringed upon by an aggressive animal. I would never allow my children to behave similarly around guests. If I knew people were uncomfortable with my children climbing on them, as a polite host, I would ask my children to leave that person alone. To me it seems this is a mutual respect issue. Am I wrong? – Dog

Henry Cotton, who won the British Open three times, said, “Golfers have analyzed the game in order to find ‘the secret.’ There is no secret.” In contrast, bridge players rely on their analysis of a deal to give them “the secret” for the right bid or play. At the 2016 Yeh Online World Bridge Cup, this deal featured the best bid, in my analysis. Look at the North hand. In second seat, partner opens one club, and righty overcalls four spades. What would you do? Once you have decided, read on. Whether you pass or make a value-showing double, partner rebids five clubs. What would you do then? The deal occurred in the match between Lavazza (who played in Turin, Italy) and Bridge Base Online (who competed in Seattle). When BBO was North-South, North doubled four spades. Then, when South removed to five clubs, North passed. Sitting North-South for Lavazza were Sylvie Willard from France and Giorgio Duboin from Italy. Willard passed over four spades. But when partner rebid five clubs, Willard anticipated South’s having a spade void and long, strong clubs. If so, they rated to have only one heart loser. Backing her analysis of the deal, Willard raised to six clubs -- a hole in one! West led the spade ace. Duboin ruffed and gave up a heart. East won and shifted to a trump, but declarer won with his seven and crossruffed hearts and clubs to take two diamonds, seven clubs and three heart ruffs on the board. Minus 420 and plus 920 gave Lavazza 11 international match points en route to the title.
