PROPHETSTOWN FIRE | THE RECOVERY

Fundraiser collects $21,000 Tampico duo raises money for victims with T-shirt sales BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 529

PROPHETSTOWN – On the back table of the Prophetstown Main Street office lay 17 checks. And just across the street, construction crews were filling in a hole where one of eight downtown buildings destroyed by fire once stood. By 9:50 a.m. Monday, five of those checks had been picked up by victims of the July 15 fire who lost their home, business or property. This round of checks was the result of

T-shirts sold by Kate Fisk and Jamie Mosher – about 2,300 T-shirts raised $21,000. Prophetstown has a population of less than 2,100. Fisk and Mosher sold the T-shirts through a Facebook page. They ordered 2,100 to start, but expected to sell only 50 or so. By the second day, they said, the sale had taken off. The weekend after the Monday fire, they had sold 1,000. One of those T-shirts was sent to Korea, to a former foreign exchange student who went to school with Fisk during the 200607 school year. She found out about the Philip Marruffo/pmarruffo@saukvalley.com fire and the fundraiser through Facebook, Larry DeNeve, Prophetstown Main Street the only promoting that Fisk and Mosher economic development chairman, disdid. cusses a plan for future development at FUNDRAISER CONTINUED ON A3 the fire site.

INSURANCE | AFFORDABLE CARE ACT

Uninsured can begin enrollment Agencies say they are ready to help BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 525

You might have heard the debates over Obamacare – the politics, the shouting, the lastminute deadlines. Today, the Affordable Care Act takes flight, unless by some political miracle, congressional Republicans repeal it. The health departments for Whiteside and Lee counties now have counselors in place to help the uninsured navigate the new marketplace for health care insurance. Starting today, people can look at their insurance options at healthcare.gov as part of the Affordable Care Act. In recent months, the federal government has scrambled to get ready for the launch of Obamacare. Much of the preparation has gone down to the wire: County health departments were expecting to get outreach materials from the federal government on Monday, one day ahead of the launch. And counselors received state and federal training only in the past few weeks. Beth Fiorini, public health administrator for the Whiteside County Health Department, said her agency has already received about 40 inquiries about the Affordable ENROLLMENT CONTINUED ON A3

Hospital focuses on comfort New digestive center unveiled BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 529

STERLING – When the first patients are treated at CGH Medical Center’s new Digestive Health Center on Saturday, not all of the improvements will be visible. The $2.5 million project, which took nearly a year to complete, was done with the overall patient experience and privacy in mind, said Val Schweiss, director of the Digestive Health Center. “One of the things I hold dear is privacy,” she said. “It’s not always comfortable for people to be seen here. ... Privacy was a big deal.” CGH will have a ribboncutting for the new Digestive Health Center and an open house today. There will

The new facility was built, in part, for additional space. The old facility saw about 3,300 patients last year, who averaged 3 hours from arrival to departure. The new facility was designed to shorten that time, by creating a more efficient layout, Schweiss said. The first change patients and their families see at the Digestive Health Center will be a dedicated waiting room, which will have a TV and a complimentary hospitality cart, with some food and beverages. Without a waiting room dedicated for the Digestive Health Center, patients often waited in the cafeteria, the

emergency room or the main lobby, and were notified a doctor was ready to see them by a pager, similar to those at a restaurant, Schweiss said. The new entrance is across the hall from the waiting room. To get into the center, non-medical staff have to ring a bell, and the nurses on the inside can use a camera to see who’s at the door. Inside the center there are nine bays, an increase from the eight in the old center, which was built 18 years ago with six. Two additional bays were added in the last few years, Schweiss said. As a result, Schweiss said she came up with a color scheme and design – blue and tan with prairie grass imagery – to keep the patients comfortable. The new Digestive Health Center has a different feel and look than the rest of the medical center. HOSPITAL CONTINUED ON A5

Emergency room renovation The $8 million CGH Emergency Department renovation and expansion of the space that was built in 1992, will take between 15 and 18 months to complete, said Dr. Paul Steinke, the hospital’s president and CEO. The emergency room has been upgraded with new equipment over the years. It was built to service 14,000 visitors a year, but last year saw approximately 29,000 patients, Steinke said. The work will be done in three phases, with the emergency room entrance moving to the hospital’s east entrance for the second phase. The emergency center will be operational in its current location during the renovations, Steinke said.

GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN | LOCAL IMPACT

Some offices expected to close doors BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 525

The Social Security office in Sterling was open Monday. A handful of people were there late morning. Sizable photos of President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden hung on the wall. A security guard greeted a reporter walking into the office along East Lincolnway. The reporter asked whether the office would be open today if the government shuts down. He didn’t know, so he asked a supervisor. The supervisor emerged from her office and referred the reporter to an agency spokeswoman in Chicago, who couldn’t be reached for comment.

“We’ve sent to South Carolina, Florida, a lot to Arizona,� Fisk said. “To just about every state, pretty much.� For now, the T-shirt sales are done. There’s $1,000 left, which will be used to order hooded sweatshirts, Fisk said, to continue the fundraiser into the fall. “Especially with football, I think it would be really cool to go to a game and see nothing but orange sweatshirts,� Fisk said. “And that’s part of the colors, the high school and city colors.� Dolores Francis was the sixth person to pick up her check. She had owned D’s Variety and Crafts for 35 years. Francis lost everything except her car and what she was wearing when she ran out of her building July 15, after she was awakened by a firefighter. “It was torched,� she said of her building. “[The fire] came down through the roof and destroyed all my personal property. And if I hadn’t gotten out of there, I would’ve been crisp.� Francis is now living in an apartment in Prophetstown. She’s still working and making hand-painted glass ornaments and origami from sheet music, among other items, but said she won’t reopen her business. She can make her crafts from her new apartment, she said. “I don’t want it to slow down,� Francis said. “I mean, I was going to retire some day, but not this way.� She has furniture in her apartment, and the donation checks have helped her put her life back together. She’ll have to buy winter clothes soon, because what she had was lost in the fire. Prophetstown took control of the eight lots and will give them to developers or the former building owners that want to rebuild. Francis won’t be among them, but she wants whatever is there to bring people into town for a positive reason. “I want things to be here that are good for Proph-

And we need businesses that are going to bring people to town.� Cindy Eriks, owner of Cindy Jean’s Restaurant, picked up a check Monday. But it’s not the first check she’s received since the fire. Strangers and customers have been mailing her checks since the fire, some with $50 and some with $100 or more, she said. The money she’s received in the mail and on Monday will help to defray some of the cost of the cleanup. Her insurance covered only $10,000 toward that cost, she said. The hardest thing for Eriks during the past 2 months has been grieving over the loss of personal and sentimental items, but she’s getting better. “I’ve come to the realization that at least I have the picture in my mind of

what it was that my grandmother had given me or great-grandmother,� she said. “Although we do have the three quilts my great-grandmother made. They are burnt on the outside. The inside squares are OK, so I’m going to take it somewhere and get one quilt made out of it.� One of the first items she found that wasn’t destroyed was a framed Bible verse – Jeremiah 29:11 – about God providing a plan. Her son’s guns were destroyed, Eriks said. “His big Bible, it’s burnt around the edges. And you open it up and you can read it clear as day. To me, that was a sign from God that that’s what was important.� Two brothers were arrested the day after the fire and later charged with arson, residential arson, and 14 counts of criminal damage to property, all felonies.

Board excited about 50th anniversary fest

DIXON – The 2013 Petunia Festival brought in enough revenue to make up for 4 years of losses. In turn, that means good things for next year’s 50th anniversary edition, said Andrew Bollman, Petunia Festival Board president. With still more revenue to finalize, July’s Petunia Festival in Dixon generated between $50,000 and $60,000, Bollman said. The sum of the previous four years’ losses totaled between $50,000 and $60,000. “Our mission isn’t to make money, but instead to put on as good of a festival as possible,� Bollman said. “When we make over what we spend, however, we can invest more into the next year to do bigger events. We try to put on as many free events as we can.� Extreme heat in 2011 led to poor attendance and caused the festival board to put together a tighter budget this past summer. Milder temperatures this time around and the festival’s move from Page Park to Heritage Crossing were two of the biggest factors in the increased revenue, Bollman said. After the success of the Mumford & Sons concert in August 2012, the Petunia Festival Board moved the entertainment stage and the Taste of Sauk downtown. Portions of River Street and Hennepin Avenue were closed for the festival. The Peoria Avenue bridge was closed Sunday for the parade and fireworks. “The setup itself is going to be very similar [next year],� Bollman said.

Thousands of people packed the downtown Saturday night to hear the 1990s alternative rock band Spin Doctors, this year’s Petunia Festival headliners. “The stage setup really worked with having the sponsorship tent in the Beanblossom parking lot area. A lot of people liked the bridge being closed that Sunday for the fireworks. We’ll look more into closing the bridge Friday night up to the fireworks, but that’s something that’s up to the City Council.� Saturday, July 6 events drew the largest crowds. About 5,000 people were in attendance to see the Spin Doctors, the featured entertainment. Also, Country Night and evening artists featuring Gina Venier and the Gentlemen and Dot Dot Dot drew very well, Bollman said. The new Brush, Broom and Bloom painting competition, sponsored by Dixon Main Street, was deemed a success and should return. The carnival did better, too, he said. Carnival operators were worried breaking up the festival would have a negative impact, but families liked

the separation. Additionally, admission into the carnival was free, meaning guardians didn’t have to pay to get in. The Taste of Sauk drew the only complaints, Bollman said. The festival board focused on attracting local food vendors this year as opposed to previous years when vendors from outside the community were invited. “People told us, ‘We can get this food any time,’� Bollman said. “They wanted us to bring back more of the outside vendors. We’ll be looking to do that next year.� A separate committee is working on ideas for the festival’s 50th anniversary next summer. The group has met several times and has come up with 80 to 100 ideas. About 4 or 5 of the best ideas could be selected and introduced as new events. The festival board is working on putting

together a book to commemorate the anniversary, and some contests or events could be held in the days leading up to the festival. “Everything is in the idea stages,� Bollman said. “We like to challenge ourselves; we try to outdo ourselves each year. Maybe we can put on a bigger show entertainment-wise.� The Petunia Festival Board is not funded by the city of Dixon and is a separate non-profit organization, depending on the revenue from the event and fundraisers leading up to it. “A big thanks has to go out to the public and our sponsors,� Bollman said. “They really did come out and support the new venue. The overwhelming amount of support and positive feedback from the public and sponsors is what led to the success.�

“Relaxed people tend to do better in a procedure,� Schweiss said. “They need less sedation.� The new center has an upgraded endoscope, which is used for looking inside the body. The new endoscope is high definition and uses narrow band imaging, which uses light of the blue and green wavelengths, to give the medical staff a clearer, almost 3-dimensional image, Schweiss said. It’s an element of the new center that was implemented into the old one while the construction was being done. “[We] didn’t want to wait for the new walls to use them,� Schweiss said. In a back closet of the new Digestive Health Center, near the room that will store the center’s instruments, is an upgrade patients will likely never see, but Schweiss said it is one of the most important.

GUEST COLUMN

Let states keep control of fracking Federal rules not needed to ensure safety DOUG WHITLEY St. Charles

We are writing [to U.S. EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy] as state chambers of commerce where high-volume, hydraulic fracturing with horizontal drilling occurs within our individual state borders. Illinois recently became a new member of the club of states that have promulgated rules and/or passed legislative regulations ensuring hydraulic fracturing is employed safely, transparently, and with a continued commitment to environmental protection. We want to reinforce a request that the U.S. EPA continue to allow state regulators to take the lead on hydraulic fracturing-related regulations. We’ve all seen the benefits of the increase in oil and natural gas supply because of the growth of this unconventional

development. It’s clear that state regulatory efforts have enabled the country to enjoy the tremendous economic growth and job creation generated from this relatively new energy Doug production, Whitley while also ensuring environmental protection isn’t compromised. Common-sense, effective regulations are necessary to govern the use of hydraulic fracturing, embracing this responsibility through regulation particular to the unique characteristics of our respective states. This is why we oppose any new federal intervention that would disrupt the regulatory frameworks of the states. OUR PEOPLE HAVE benefited from the oil and gas boom associated with shale – all under the regulatory eyes of their state’s DNR or EPA. No one knows the local geology, land, and water better than state agency

staff; different states have different areas of focus when it comes to regulating hydraulic fracturing. The current structure allows states the wherewithal to ban hydraulic fracturing within their borders if that’s the perceived collective wish of the electorate. We’re concerned that federal oversight will be too difficult to manage with such a dichotomy of environmental issues in states as diverse as Colorado, Illinois, Texas, West Virginia, and others. We recommend the U.S. Bureau of Land Management adhere to the same restraint when it comes to managing oil and gas extraction in federal lands. Different areas have different needs, and even within a state, it makes sense to have one set of rules and regulations that protect the environment. This is easier and more effective for the state’s regulators and creates more certainty for the industry. Finally, as we look forward to new technological advances in the hydraulic fracturing industry, individual

states are more than nimble enough to react and amend the regulatory models so they provide the appropriate protections for the land and its citizens. OUR STATES HAVE enjoyed or are looking to reap the benefits of the relatively new energy development that is changing the face of our country’s energy portfolio. We have a great new resource of energy, being done in a regulated environment that protects our air, land, and water quality, creating millions of quality jobs for Americans. We hope you’ll agree that it’s unnecessary for the U.S. EPA or Bureau of Land Management to generate additional rules or otherwise usurp local expertise, and that prudence would dictate continuing the successful tradition of having the states protect their assets in the manner that works best for them. Note to readers: Doug Whitley is president and CEO of the Illinois Chamber of Commerce. The letter is co-signed by 16 state chambers of commerce.

A bipartisan chorus seemed to rise as one last week to urge Gov. Pat Quinn not to appeal a ruling by a Cook County judge. The judge ruled the governor had violated the state constitution when he vetoed lawmaker salaries last summer. Quinn said he vetoed the appropriations because he was tired of waiting for legislators to finish a pension reform plan. Despite urgings by both Democrats and Republicans to drop the whole thing, Quinn forged ahead, issuing a defiant statement in which he vowed to pursue an appeal of Judge Neil Cohen’s decision to void the veto and order lawmaker paychecks to be processed “immediately.� Judge Cohen agreed with Quinn on one issue about veto process, but then went on to declare Quinn’s veto wasn’t valid from the moment it was issued. Cohen did so by relying on the meaning of a single word: “changes.� Quinn had argued that transcripts from the 1970 Illinois Constitutional Convention clearly showed that delegates hoped to stop legislators from increasing their salaries when they agreed on language that prevented “changes in the salary of a member� from taking effect during that member’s term of office after his or her most recent election. Cohen relied on two dictionary definitions to declare that the common meaning of “changes� included both increases and decreases. Therefore, Quinn’s veto violated the Constitution and was declared null and void. It’s actually a pretty well reasoned and informed decision, especially considering the fact that Judge Cohen seemed more than a little out of his element during a previous hearing. He didn’t appear to understand the briefs that had already been presented, and appeared confused at times about the constitution and general procedure. He even agreed to put off his decision by a week so that Madigan and Cullerton could file another brief, but then went ahead without them and gave them what they had asked for. OK, BACK TO THE appeal, which is no surprise, to say the least. Even setting aside the overwhelming popularity of the governor’s veto and Quinn’s natural stubbornness, there should have never been any doubt that Quinn would attempt to appeal this ruling. Quinn has jealously guarded his powers and attempted – often bungling – to expand the pow-

One of the ways he’s done that is by issuing presidential-like “signing statements.� His latest, issued in July, promised he would not allow a bill he’d signed to undermine the state’s compliance with a class action consent decree. Quinn is the first to use such statements, which are normally reserved for vetoes. He also constantly has meddled in the affairs of various boards and commissions, demanding resignations of the University of Illinois Board of Trustees after a political influence scandal and recently calling for the ouster of the director of the state’s torture commission. He Gov. Pat attempted to Quinn pack SouthGovernor has ern Illinois a history of protecting and University’s expanding his board this powers. year in order to get his way at that university, but was solidly rebuked when the Senate unanimously rejected his appointees. QUINN CALLED FOR the “fumigation� of state government when he was first elevated to the office, but then resisted several legislative efforts designed to get rid of Blagojevich holdovers, saying it was his job to fire them. An appeal, therefore, would be right in line with Quinn’s history of protecting and expanding his powers. He clearly believes he had the absolute right to veto those salaries and that the judge was wrong to stop him. This is more than just a political game to Quinn. He acts like such a goofball at times that it’s often difficult to take what he says and does at face value, but this is obviously very serious business to the governor. Make no mistake, Quinn wants the right to do this again. And he wants his successors to have this right in order to bring the General Assembly to heel. Illinois governors are constitutionally strong, so state legislative leaders have compensated for their comparative weakness by building huge political fiefdoms and devising innumerable rules to stymie the governor’s powers. Quinn appears to be trying to inject some balance into the government with this veto.

HIV/AIDS EDUCATION

Mother on a mission

Shaken by school lessons, woman shakes up what is taught MCT News Service

SEATTLE – When her daughter was going into the fifth grade 2 years ago, Jodie Howerton reviewed the HIV/AIDS educational materials that would be used in her child’s class – and was appalled by what she saw. The opening clip of a video, circa early 1990s, featured this headline: “Thousands die of AIDS.” In it, the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) was dressed as a growling, red monster, and there was a cameo appearance by the Grim Reaper. The outdated images and statistics about AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome), and the virus that causes it, were particularly troublesome to the Woodinville, Wash., mother of three, who had adopted a son born with HIV and who worried the video would perpetuate existing stereotypes. Treatment for HIV/ AIDS has advanced lightyears in the 3 decades since the first U.S. cases were reported. Now, with proper medications, those infected can live long and relatively healthy lives. “There was not a word about being born with the virus,” Howerton said of the video, which the district has since stopped using. “It was a scary, fear-based video that would teach people how to be afraid of my son.” Working with the Northshore School District where her daughter was enrolled at Cottage Lake Elementary School, Howerton scoured the Internet for current and ageappropriate videos to replace the district’s lastcentury set. Finding none, the communications specialist set about to make some. As part of a campaign she’s calling Redefine Positive, Howerton sat down a year ago with representatives from the state Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, Seattle Children’s Hospital Foundation, Public Health – Seattle & King County, Northshore schools, and other parents and advocates to discuss a series of documentary-style educational videos that could be used not just at her children’s school, but in elementary, middle, and high schools throughout the state.

Michael and Jodie Howerton are shown with Alex, 13, left, Caleb, 11, and Mduduzi, 8, at home in Woodinville, Wash., on Sept. 24. Three years ago the Howertons adopted Mduduzi, who is HIV-positive. Because of the dated materials being used to teach about HIV in schools, Jodie Howerton has embarked on a search to find better means of instruction. Production work on the first two videos is to begin in November. “Not many kids are being born in the U.S. with this disease, but a number of kids who are HIV-positive are being adopted,” she said. “These kids, like my son, are going to sit down in classrooms where inaccurate, outdated information is being presented.” Howerton says she worries that without the latest and most accurate information, children like her son would be discriminated against and ostracized. “It’s time to educate all our kids in a way that reduces the devastating stigma still associated with HIV.” Washington is one of 33 states along with the District of Columbia that mandate schools teach children about HIV/ AIDS. The state Legislature passed the law at the height of the AIDS epidemic in 1988, requiring that education on the “life-threatening dangers of the disease, its spread and prevention begin in the fifth grade.” Parents are allowed to review the teaching materials. While OSPI establishes model curricula that districts can use in elementary, middle, and high school, it’s up to each district to determine how

The idea is to remove the stigma. You don’t want to get this, but you don’t have to be afraid of people who have it.

that information is delivered. Many use videos to supplement written material and classroom discussions — accommodating those students who are better visual learners, said Suzanne Hidde She said her office has heard directly from parents and districts that some of the videos being used are outdated or inadequate. Many of them have outdated statistics or present the progression of the disease as it stood before the development of antiretroviral drugs that control the virus. Hidde said state and local budget constraints have kept the information from being updated. “Often school districts use material that might be older – maybe a textbook, video, or DVD – and supplement it with more recent, updated information,” she said. OSPI has a lending library with material that districts may borrow, but that, too, is old, and

Hidde said the agency is updating it and may discontinue it because many districts use streaming videos. Sandra Tracy, health and nursing supervisor for the Northshore schools, said the district was aware the fifth-grade video wasn’t perfect and for years had been searching for a more recent one – without luck. “The videos are supplementary; they’re not required,” she said. “Many teachers like to use them as a way to start the dialogue.” After Howerton raised concerns, the district replaced the fifth-grade video with the one used for sixth-graders – a per-

haps less engaging one that features adults talking to children about AIDS. Twenty years ago, Tracy said, more parents would come to the school to view the HIV/AIDS material because the disease was still new and parents were concerned about what schools would be telling their children. These days, not so much. Howerton first met her son, Mduduzi (they call him Duzi), 6 years ago on a humanitarian trip to South Africa where he was living in a group home. He was 2 at the time and had been born with HIV. For the first time, Howerton said, she began learning about the disease “in a very real way.” “We didn’t go to South Africa thinking we would adopt; it was never part of the plan. My husband and I had two healthy kids at home, and we thought we could easily parent these kids.”

Duzi came home with the family 3 years ago when he was 5. Self-employed, Howerton has spent hours over the past year working on promotion and fundraising for her video campaign. There’s no money in it for her. She estimates it will cost $125,000 to produce all four videos. She’s using the crowdfunding platform The videos will feature people from all walks of life living with the disease and will carry current statistics and information about prevention, transmission, and compassion. “The idea is to remove the stigma,” Howerton said. “You don’t want to get this, but you don’t have to be afraid of people who have it.” To draw attention to the effort, the Howertons posted online a promotional video that features them as a family – Duzi, now 8, and his siblings jumping on a trampoline, playing with the family dog, being children. Howerton said the family agonized over revealing Duzi’s HIV status in such a public way and that she’s been criticized by other parents for the decision to do so. “Our decision was about guaranteeing he gets to live in the light – no matter what,” she said. “If this was leukemia or some other disease, there wouldn’t be a question about whether to share it.” She acknowledges that her son, as he gets older, might be mad at his parents for disclosing his condition. “But we believe we are preparing him to be unashamed forever.”

4UESDAY /CTOBER 

Mastectomy fails to chase man from wife’s side Dear Abby: I am writing in response to “Anonymous in Wisconsin� (Aug. 11), the cancer survivor whose husband has lost interest in her after her double mastectomy. I am outraged by his insensitivity and lack of love. She says she doesn’t want to leave him. My question to her is, why not? She deserves better. I am a cancer survivor who was diagnosed with breast cancer 7 months after I was married. Prior to my decision to have a radical mastectomy, I offered my husband the chance to leave. (After all, one doesn’t expect “worse� to come so soon after the wedding.) The prospect of children,

DEARABBY !BIGAIL6AN "URENS *EANNE 0HILLIPS COLUMN APPEARS DURINGTHE WEEK THROUGH 5NIVERSAL 0RESS 3YNDICATE

which we had discussed and was important to us, was uncertain because of my subsequent chemotherapy. My husband didn’t hesitate. He said, “You would not leave me. We will adopt.� On our first wedding anniversary I was bald, and he treated me to a

beautiful, romantic getaway. Although I did have reconstruction, it was a long process. He was supportive from Day 1. Fifteen years later, I was diagnosed with breast cancer again. I had another radical mastectomy followed by chemo and reconstruction. Abby, my husband again made me feel beautiful even when I didn’t. There are men out there who define a woman not by the size of her breasts, but by the beauty of her heart. – Survivor in Natick, Mass. Dear Survivor: I want to thank you and the many breast cancer survivors – and their supportive

spouses – who wrote me and told me your personal stories. Readers, I am printing this to remind you that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Read on: Dear Abby: I had to write to “Anonymous.� I kept hoping my husband of 20 years would change his mind and accept my new body. However, because he could not, I chose to divorce him and it liberated me. At first, I felt that if the one person who was supposed to care couldn’t look at me, then no other man would, either. I was wrong. After 5 years of dating, I never once encountered a man who was as insensi-

tive as my husband had been. I have now found the man of my dreams. In some respects, my “medical adventures,� as I refer to them, were the best thing that ever happened. They enabled me to see my ex for who he really was, and find a man who truly is a man. – Got a New Set and a New Life Dear Abby: Breast cancer doesn’t ruin your life unless you let it. I am 66 years old. When I was in high school, my mom had a breast removed. My parents and I just took it in stride. It didn’t define us. Dad adored her. Mom would come in

dressed up for whatever reason and ask, “Am I even?� because the “falsies� then were made of foam and were lightweight. She kept the vacation money pinned to it. She made a few new friends faint when she used it as a pin cushion. Dad died at 90, and Mom died the following year. Mom could have helped “Anonymous.� She would have cut her a slice of homemade pie, poured a cup of coffee, sat down at the table and just talked to her. Women need other women. “Anonymous� should find a friend who has gone through the same thing and talk and pray. She needs both. – Earlene in Texas

GULF OIL SPILL

BP accused of lying to government Companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyers: There was no way to prepare for blowout NEW ORLEANS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; BP lied to the U.S. government and withheld information about the amount of oil spilling into the Gulf of Mexico after its well blew out in 2010, attorneys told a judge Monday.

But lawyers for the London-based oil giant denied those accusations and said there was no way to prepare for such a unique blowout a mile below the sea floor. Second-guessing the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts to cap the well was â&#x20AC;&#x153;Monday morning quarterbacking at its worst,â&#x20AC;? BP attorney Mike Brock said during opening statements of

the second phase of a trial over the spill. This part focuses on BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response to the disaster and is designed to help U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier determine how much oil spewed into the Gulf. The governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estimate is 70 million gallons more than what BP says spilled. Establishing how much oil leaked into the

Gulf during BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s struggle to cap the well will help figure out the penalties the oil company must pay. Billions of dollars are at stake. The first phase of the trial centered on what caused the blowout. Brian Barr, an attorney for residents and businesses who claim they were hurt by the spill, said BP failed to prepare for a

CHICAGO CTA COLLISION

blowout and compounded the problem by misleading federal officials. BP had a 600-page oil spill response plan that only included one page on â&#x20AC;&#x153;source control.â&#x20AC;? It simply called for assembling a team of experts to devise a way to stop a blowout, Barr said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan was nothing more than a plan to

plan,â&#x20AC;? he said. The April 20, 2010, blowout of BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Macondo well 50 miles off the Louisiana coast triggered an explosion that killed 11 workers on the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig and spawned the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst offshore oil spill. BP used a capping stack to seal the well on July 15, 2010, after other methods failed.

Video shows no one at controls NBC, CNN drop Agency unsure how car rolled out of station MCT New Service

CHICAGO â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Video shows no one at the controls of an out-of-service commuter train as it barreled head-on into a Blue Line train stopped at a station in Forest Park Monday morning, injuring dozens of people, Chicago Transit Authority officials said. The agency said it still was waiting to review other video along the line and at the Forest Park train yard, where two of the four cars had been awaiting repairs. But it was at a loss to explain how the train rolled out of the station and down the line to the Harlem Avenue stop, where it collided with a train headed toward the station shortly before 8 a.m. CDT. The train passed at least two switches that should have stopped it and was going about 20 mph when it hit the other train, crumpling the fronts of both and

Authorities inspect the wreckage of two Chicago Transit Authority trains that crashed Monday in Forest Park. The crash happened when a westbound train stopped at the CTA Blue Line Harlem station and was struck by an eastbound train on the same track. The CTA is investigating the cause of the crash, including why the trains were on the same track. A CTA official said 33 people suffered nonlife-threatening injuries. jolting passengers to the floor. The CTA said 33 people were taken to nine hospitals but there were no serious injuries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do have fail-safes in place. However, they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t function the way that they should have in this particular case,â&#x20AC;? said CTA spokesman Brian Steele. There was no apparent sign that the train had

been broken into at the yard, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no broken windows, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no pried-open doors, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no graffiti or vandalism inside the rail car,â&#x20AC;? Steele said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we are doing a thorough investigation of this.â&#x20AC;? Steele said officials are waiting to see other surveillance to determine whether anyone was on the train.

Amalgamated Transit Union president Robert Kelly called the accident â&#x20AC;&#x153;baffling.â&#x20AC;? He said the train included two cars that were on hold since last week, waiting for repairs at the Skokie yard. He said it takes two keys to start a train, one to enter the operatorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s booth and one to turn on the train. The train would have had to power up to get over a rise in the tracks before the line slopes down to the Harlem stop. Kelly said the train somehow got through three interlocks and overcame a â&#x20AC;&#x153;dead manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s switch,â&#x20AC;? designed to stop the train when a controllerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hands are off the switches. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is baffling everybody,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The train should have been tripped and gone into emergency. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s starting to look like a mechanical malfunction.â&#x20AC;? The National Transit Safety Board has taken over the investigation and said it is bringing in a team of specialists. Tim DePaepe, a railroad accident investigator for the NTSB, said the agency has not identified a probable cause.

Clinton projects MCT News Service

NBC and CNN have both pulled the plug on projects about potential presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton. In July, NBC announced with fanfare that it was developing a 4-hour minseries about Clinton and had tapped Diane Lane to portray the former first lady and former secretary of state. The project was blasted by the Republican National Committee and others who feared that Clinton would be given softball treatment. They worried the miniseries would be little more than a campaign commercial for an expected run by Clinton for the White House in 2016. In a statement, NBC spokesman Richard Licata said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;After reviewing and prioritizing our slate of movie/mini-series development, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve decided that we will no longer continue developing the Hillary Clinton mini-series.â&#x20AC;? Licata didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t elaborate

on the reason for the networkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reversal. Earlier on Monday, CNN conHIllary firmed it was Rodham scrapping Clinton plans for a documentary about Clinton after that projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director, Charles Ferguson, wrote in the Huffington Post that pressure from the Clintons had made his project â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which was always intended to be controversial â&#x20AC;&#x201C; too difficult to complete. The Clintons, he said, encouraged their friends not to cooperate with his project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;CNN gave me complete control (â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;final cutâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;) over the theatrical version, and a generous budget,â&#x20AC;? Ferguson wrote in a blog post on Huffington Post. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And then the fun began. ... Only two persons who had ever dealt with Mrs. Clinton would agree to an on-camera interview, and I suspected that even they would back out.â&#x20AC;?

HEALTH INSURANCE | AFFORDABLE CARE ACT

Under fire, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Obamacareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; going live Early rollout faces glitches WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Contentious from its conception, President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health care law has survived the Supreme Court, a battle for the White House and rounds of budget brinkmanship. Now comes the ultimate test: the verdict of the American people. A government shutdown could dampen the rollout Tuesday as insurance markets open around the country. But it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop the main components of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obamacareâ&#x20AC;? from going live as scheduled, glitches and all. The biggest expansion of societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safety net since Medicare will be in the hands of consumers, and most of their concerns donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t revolve around ideology and policy details. People want to know if they can afford the premiums, if the coverage will be solid, where the bureaucratic pitfalls are and if new federal and state websites will really demystify shopping for health insurance. Full answers may take months. Expect the rollout to get off to a slow start, with some bumps. People who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have access to job-based health insurance can start shopping right away for subsidized private policies. Or they can wait to sign up as late as Dec. 15 and still get coverage by Jan. 1. Many will probably want to see how it goes for the first wave of applicants before they jump in. Glitches are likely to pop up in the new online insurance markets. Over the weekend, several states were still struggling to get plan information to display accurately on their web-

State unveils health marketplace ads CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Illinois officials plan to launch a long-delayed, $33 million advertising campaign to inform residents about a new health insurance marketplace Tuesday, the ads first appearing on the same day the marketplace goes live with details of benefits available under President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health care law. The Get Covered Illinois ad campaign will start slowly with full-

color newspaper ads in 50 cities, said Kelly Sullivan, chief marketing and communication officer for the marketplace. She provided copies of the ads to The Associated Press. Sullivan said radio and TV ads wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start until officials make sure the web-based marketplace and a call center are working smoothly and that enough trained workers are ready to help people sign up for insurance.

sites. Earlier, the federal government announced delays for small business and Spanish-language signups. A protracted government shutdown could slow needed technology fixes. Consumers also could run into problems getting their right subsidy amounts. People with complicated tax returns and extended families living under the same roof could find they need personal assistance to work out the issues. Referrals to state Medicaid programs might go smoothly in some states, not so well in others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As this unveils, it is going to be very clear that everything canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be done on a

Christine Ferguson, director of Rhode Islandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marketplace, said in an interview prior to the launch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But by Day 60 to 120, and the year after that, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to get a lot more user-friendly and effective.â&#x20AC;? Eventually, at least half the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nearly 50 million uninsured people are expected to get coverage through the Affordable Care Act, either through subsidized private plans sold in the new markets or an expanded version of Medicaid in states accepting it for low-income adults. Immigrants in the country illegally will be the largest group remaining uninsured. People who do have

access to employer-based plans will also see changes. Starting Jan. 1, virtually all Americans will have a legal obligation to carry health insurance or face fines. Passing up the company medical plan in exchange for a bigger paycheck may no longer be an option. But employees who lose their jobs, entrepreneurs starting their own businesses and people in between school and work could have an easier time getting coverage. Also as of Jan. 1, a preexisting medical condition will no longer be a barrier to getting health insurance. A partial government shutdown, driven by Republican opponents of increasing the federal role in health care, will not stop what they call â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obamacare.â&#x20AC;? Core provisions and benefits are shielded from annual budget battles. If other government services are shut down, the health care overhaul can largely keep going â&#x20AC;&#x201C; much like Social Security and Medicare.

BUDGET DEADLINE | NATION AND STATE

Countdown to shutdown GOP unity frays as deadline looms WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; With the threatened government shutdown imminent, House Republicans scaled back their demands to delay the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health care law Monday night as the price for essential federal funding, but President Barack Obama and Democrats rejected the proposals as quickly as they were made. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at the brink,â&#x20AC;? said Sen. Barbara Mikulski, D-Md. On a long day and night in the Capitol, the Senate torpedoed one GOP attempt to tie government financing to changes in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obamacare.â&#x20AC;? House Republicans countered with a second despite unmistakable signs their unity was fraying â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and Senate Democrats stood by to reject it, as well. The stock market dropped on fears that political gridlock between the White House and a tea party-heavy Republican Party would prevail, though analysts suggested significant damage to the national economy was unlikely unless a shutdown lasted more than a few days. Still, a shutdown would send hundreds of thousands of workers home and inconvenience millions of people who rely on federal services or are drawn to the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parks and other attractions. Some critical parts of the government â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from the military to air traffic controllers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; would remain open. As lawmakers squabbled, President Barack Obama spoke bluntly about House Republicans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to extract a ransom for doing your

AP

House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy of California walks to a House Republican Conference meeting to discuss the ongoing budget fight Monday on Capitol Hill in Washington. Republican unity showed unmistakable signs of fraying Monday as Democrats and the White House vowed to reject tea party-driven demands to delay the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health care overhaul as the price for averting a partial government shutdown at midnight.

job, for doing what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re supposed to be doing anyway, or just because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a law there that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like,â&#x20AC;? he said. Speaking of the health care law that undergoes a major expansion on Tues-

day, he said emphatically, â&#x20AC;&#x153;That funding is already in place. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shut it down.â&#x20AC;? House Speaker John Boehner responded a few hours later on the House floor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Ameri-

can people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want a shutdown and neither do I,â&#x20AC;? he said. Yet, he added, the new health care law â&#x20AC;&#x153;is having a devastating impact. ... Something has to be done.â&#x20AC;? For all the Republican defiance, it appeared that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and fellow Democrats had the upper hand in the fastapproaching end game, and that Republicans would soon have to decide whether to allow the government to remain open â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or come away emptyhanded from a bruising struggle with Obama. Some Republicans balked, moderates and conservatives alike. Rep. Phil Gingrey of Georgia said it felt as if Republicans were retreating, given their diminishing demands, and Rep. Scott Rigell of Virginia said there was not unanimity when the rank and file met to discuss a next move. Yet for the first time since the showdown began more than a week ago, there was also public dissent from the Republican strategy that has been carried out at the insistence of lawmakers working in tandem with GOP Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas. Rep. Charles Dent, R-Pa., said he was willing to vote for standalone legislation that would keep the government running and contained no health care-related provisions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would be supportive of it, and I believe the votes are there in the House to pass it at that point,â&#x20AC;? the fifthterm congressman said. Other Republicans sought to blame Democrats for any shutdown, but Dent conceded that Republicans would bear the blame, whether or not they deserved it.

Illinois readies for funding stoppage Workers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want furloughs CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Thousands of workers at military installations and federal employees based in Illinois prepared Monday for a possible federal government shutdown and unpaid time off. Nearly 100 federal workers chanted in downtown Chicago, some holding signs that read: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jobs Not Furloughs.â&#x20AC;? Sherry Estes, an Environmental Protection Agency lawyer, said a shutdown would mean some critical inspections would be put on hold. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problematic is the work that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be done,â&#x20AC;? she said. She planned to report to work Tuesday, but maybe only to receive a furlough notice and secure files. She described the conservative challenge to President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health care law and looming shutdown as â&#x20AC;&#x153;pure political theater of the absurd.â&#x20AC;? Federal lawmakers were trying Monday to reach a spending agreement to avert a shutdown after midnight. In Illinois, the most immediate effects would include the closure of one national park in Springfield and furloughs, notably at Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; military bases which have faced cutbacks already. Thousands of workers at Scott Air Force Base east of St. Louis have already weathered unpaid furloughs as part of the automatic federal spending cuts. Twothirds of the baseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 5,000 civilian workers could be furloughed as long as the shutdown persists,

said Air Force Col. Kyle Kremer, commander of the baseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primary air wing. The remaining civilian employees on the 13,000-worker base would be exempt, since they draw salaries and operational funds from unrelated sources. Still, Kremer said, the shutdown would not compromise the baseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role as a global mobility and transportation hub for the Defense Department. Employees of the Rock Island Arsenal in northwestern Illinois said employees were told to report to work Tuesday, but roughly 3,000 civilian employees of the 8,000 total could be furloughed, according to Dan Carlson, a spokesman for Army Sustainment Command at the arsenal. State employees whose salaries are paid by federal funds â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including those in Veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Affairs, Military Affairs and Illinois Emergency Management Agency â&#x20AC;&#x201C; could see temporary layoffs as early as Wednesday if the shutdown proceeds, said Abdon Pallasch, Gov. Pat Quinnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assistant budget director. His office had no estimates on how many employees would be affected. The last time there was a shutdown in 1995, the state issued roughly 1,200 temporary layoffs. In the wake of a shutdown, all national parks would be closed, including the Lincoln Home National Historic Site in Springfield, according to said Patty Rooney, a spokeswoman for the National Park Servicesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Midwest region.

ST. LOUIS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; At opposite ends of Illinois, St. Louis and Chicago have famously parried for more than a century: St. Louis snatched the 1904 Olympics even after Chicago had been named the host city, and the disdain between St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs fans fuels one of baseballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest rivalries. Now the competitors are facing off on a new field of play in trying to woo the new global headquarters of Archer Daniels Midland Co., an agricultural giant that has been based for decades in the central Illinois city of Decatur, roughly halfway between the two cities. The multibillion-dollar company announced last week it needed better access to its global customers, including an international airport. But it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just about the 200 executive and information technol-

ogy jobs that are part of the deal. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also about prestige and bragging rights â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and no doubt tax revenue from the highpaying boardroom jobs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that come with landing a company thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s among the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest players in agricultural processing, ranked No. 27 on the Fortune 500 list. Houston, Minneapolis and Indianapolis also have been mentioned as contenders, though ADM is staying mum about its selection process. Chicago has been floated as a favorite by experts, largely because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home to the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second busiest international airport and behemoth businesses including McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Sears and aircraft maker Boeing Co. But that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t discouraged its old rival some 300 miles away, which is promoting itself as an agribusiness mecca that already includes the seed giant Monsanto Co. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotta have our

swagger,â&#x20AC;? said Katy Jamboretz, who works for the St. Louis regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic development agency. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This would be a huge victory if we were to land a company of that stature.â&#x20AC;? If St. Louis has a sporting chance, some submit fan loyalty could play some role: Decatur is downstate Illinois, where at least as many baseball fans root for the Cardinals as the Cubs, maybe including some top ADM executives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Check their closet for red ball caps,â&#x20AC;? said Charlie Leonard, a lifelong Cardinals fan who teaches politics and public administration at Southern Illinois University. But he acknowledged the Windy City has â&#x20AC;&#x153;a deeper benchâ&#x20AC;? of selling points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what kind of odds Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d give, but Chicago would be the favorite,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;St. Louis is mentioned so that it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look like

In this Aug. 2, file photo, pedestrians cross a street near the iconic Gateway Arch in St. Louis. The long rivalry between Chicago and St. Louis continues with their battle for the ADM headquarters. itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rigged for Chicago. But St. Louis should be flattered by the attention and use it to get others to give it a look.â&#x20AC;? ADM, which turns corn, soybeans and other crops into everything from animal feed to ethanol, has said it will keep its North American headquarters in Decatur, along with about 4,400

jobs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; roughly one-sixth of its 30,000 employees worldwide. Neither Chicago nor St. Louis is saying much about incentives they may offer, but an Illinois legislator proposes giving the company a 10 percent break on utility taxes for up to 30 years and an income-tax credit if it remains in Illinois.

Sveum never had a chance

BY KEVIN FISHBAIN Shaw Media

C

HICAGO â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Here in the City of Long Winters, baseball is finished until 2014. Oh, well. At least we have word games. The Cubs fired manager Dale Sveum on Monday after two miserable seasons on the North Side. Sveum was given a TripleA ball club and produced Triple-A results, losing 101 games in his first season and 96 games in his next attempt. Yet wins and losses were not the reason why Sveum was dumped with 1 year remaining on his deal, as Cubs wizard Theo Epstein told reporters at Wrigley Field. Instead, Sveum was canned because the team needed â&#x20AC;&#x153;a dynamic new voice,â&#x20AC;? perhaps so dynamic that it could sing along during the seventh-inning stretch. Anyway, Epstein issued a five-paragraph, 589word opus regarding his decision. Most of us are too busy to fuss with such word counts, so I went ahead and selected a handful of my favorite words that Epstein included in his statement. Painful. Patient. Winning. Soon. Tomorrow. Context, schmontext. Who needs the other 584 words when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got those five? They tell the story of the modernday Cubs, 105 years and counting without a title.

Maggie McPherson has been running for as long as she can remember, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been trying to keep up with her older sisters. Now, cross country competitors from around the Sauk Valley are trying to keep up with her. McPherson is one of many talented underclassmen in this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cross country crop. The Sterling freshman won the Twin Cities Meet on Sept. 17 at Hoover Park, and earned a top-20 finish on Saturday at the 15-team, 176-runner Rock River Run on the same course. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just love running; I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

McPherson file School: Sterling Year: Freshman Sports: Cross country, track Parents: Jim & Cathy McPherson Siblings: Sisters Elise Maggie (college senior) & Carrie (college McPherson Sterling sophomore), freshman brother Ryan (8th grader) imagine doing any other sport,â&#x20AC;? McPherson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just so happy when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m running, and

I just feel so good about myself after I run a long distance. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just you against yourself and the clock, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a feeling of pride and accomplishment when you reach the goals you set for yourself.â&#x20AC;? For the third of four children in the McPherson clan, one would think there would always be the temptation to compare herself with older sisters Elise and Carrie, both of whom run cross country at Augustana. But instead of competing against her sisters, directly or indirectly, Maggie is far more content to lean on Carrie and Elise for support and encouragement. RUNS CONTINUED ON B4

When the Lions smacked the Bears with 27 straight points Sunday, the Chicago offense had to go in passoften mode, as seen in the snap counts. Earl Bennett played in 49 of 72 snaps (68 percent), the most playing time he has received this season. Matt Forte had season-high participation with 71 of 72 snaps, resulting in 19 total touches. Forte as a receiving threat, and the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s need to abandon the run, kept Michael Bush on the sideline. He played only two snaps, one being Forteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 53-yard touchdown run. Predominant blockers like Steve Maneri (three snaps), Tony Fiammetta (10 snaps) and Dante Rosario (nine snaps) saw season-low snap counts. The Bears had been extremely productive with the personnel of Forte, Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, Martellus Bennett and Maneri, but we only saw that formation a couple times.

Bears wide receiver Earl Bennett saw more plays on Sunday against the Lions than he had in any other game this season.

Members of the Amboy football team celebrate after beating Morrison 27-18 on Friday. The Clippers have opened Three Rivers North play 2-0 after losing three straight Three Rivers crossover games to start the season. BY DAN WOESSNER DWOESSNER SAUKVALLEYCOM    EXT

Here are some of the numbers that explain Week 5 of the high school football season in the Sauk Valley:

1

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how many Sauk Valley football teams that are playoff eligible after 5 weeks of the season. The Eastland-Pearl City Wildcatz (5-0) earned that spot with a 34-21 win over LenaWinslow in a key NUIC Northwest game. EPC will look for win No. 6 against Polo (2-3) on Friday. Newman (4-1) and ErieProphetstown (4-1) could become playoff eligible this week with wins.

69

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how many teams around the state are 5-0 and, therefore, playoff eligible. In all, 256 teams will qualify for the playoffs. Conference champions earn automatic qualification.

5

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how many area teams had homecoming games in Week 5. Only two of those teams won. Sterling beat LaSalle-Peru 21-10 at Sterling Chevrolet Field at Roscoe Eades Stadium. Amboy knocked off Morrison 27-18. Bureau Valley, Dixon and Rock Falls all lost homecoming games. The opponents in those three games combined for 161 points; those three teams scored 61 points.

42.9

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how many points per game the Bureau Valley Storm

had averaged in games against Erie-Prophetstown over the last nine seasons. Only once during that span (2012) did the Storm score fewer than 40 points. Erie-Prophetstown won Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game 42-29. Erie-Prophetstown broke a 12-game losing streak to the Storm. The two communities of Erie and Prophetstown had a combined losing streak of 16 games to Bureau Valley.

1,066

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how many rushing yards that Erie-Prophetstownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nick Williams has through five weeks of the season. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an average of 213.2 yards per game. Williams also has 17 rushing touchdowns.

17

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how many regularseason conference games that the Newman Comets have won in a row after Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 55-14 win over Fulton. Newmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last loss in conference came in Week 4 of the 2011 season to St. Bede, when the teams played in the Big Rivers. The Comets have won 26 of their last 27 conference games.

2-0

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the record of the Amboy Clippers in the Three Rivers North after losing their three Three Rivers conference crossover games to start the season. The Clippers are one of three teams undefeated in the conference. Erie-Prophetsown and Newman are both 3-0. Amboy beat Morrison 27-18 in Week 5. The Clippers host ErieProphetstown in a key game on Friday.

10

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how many touchdowns that Rockford Lutheran sophomore James Robinson has scored against Sauk Valley teams Rock Falls and Oregon. He had 393 yards of total offense and five touchdowns against the Rockets in a 66-45 win in Week 3. On Friday, Robinson rushed for 253 yards and five touchdowns against Oregon. The Crusaders beat the Hawks 48-14. Robinson has 19 TDs for the season.

0.69

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how many yards per rush the LaSalle-Peru Cavaliers managed against Sterling in Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss. They had 29 carries for 20 yards. Quarterback Colby Sassano, who threw for 201 yards, rushed nine times for minus-32 yards. The Cavs also had four costly turnovers.

50.4

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how many points per game teams are scoring against the Rock Falls through five games this season. Winnebago scored 21 points in each of the first three quarters in Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 63-32 win. Rock Falls is averaging 31.6 points per game.

5

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how many area teams picked up their fourth loss of the season on Friday. Bureau Valley, Dixon, Fulton, Milledgeville and Rock Falls start the playoffs early, as they cannot lose another game this season and still qualify for the postseason. AFC and West Carroll are both 0-5 and will not make the playoffs.

Tampa too much in Texas Price, Rays shut down Rangers in 163rd game BY STEPHEN HAWKINS AP Sports Writer

ARLINGTON, Texas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; David Price, Evan Longoria and the Tampa Bay Rays are going to playoffs again, getting there with a win in their final regularseason game for the second time in 3 years. They needed an extra game this time. Price threw his fourth complete game of the season, Longoria had a two-run homer, and the Rays beat the Texas Rangers 5-2 in the AL wild-card tiebreaker Monday night, the 163rd game for both teams. The Rays face another must-win situation Wednesday night at Cleveland in the AL wildcard game; the winner faces Boston in the division series. Tampa Bay, in the playoffs for the fourth time in 6 years, won four of six from the Indians during the regular season. Price (10-8), the reigning AL Cy Young winner, had a 10.26 ERA in four previous starts in Arlington. He was superb in this one, striking out four and walking one.

AP

The Rangersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Leonys Martin holds up the ball after a diving stop Monday against the Rays in Arlington, Texas. Martinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trap of the ball was ruled a catch, but the blown call didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cost the Rays, who won 5-2. He picked off two runners Texas had won seven in while allowing seven hits a row, needing every one and throwing 81 of 118 just to force the majorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pitches for strikes. first tiebreaker since 2007.

Management should take blame MUSICK

CONTINUED FROM B1

On the surface, the Cubsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; decision to fire Sveum seems cold and misguided. He wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the one who plopped down $52 million for 18-game loser Edwin Jackson, a 30-year-old journeyman. He wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the one who hyped up young players such as Anthony Rizzo (.233, 23 HRs, 80 RBIs) and Starlin Castro (.245, 10 HRs, 44 RBIs). Now, Sveum wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the one trying to make chicken salad out of lineup cards. Which person will accept that job? Most of the chatter has focused on Yankees manager Joe Girardi, a Peoria native and Northwestern alum who has a 642-492 career record and a 2009 World Series title on his managerial rĂŠsumĂŠ. A series of bad contracts is catching up to the Yankees, who missed the playoffs for the first time in 5 years, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible Girardi would

like a fresh start with a franchise that likely is willing to meet his price. If Girardi decides to return to the Yankees or join a broadcast booth â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he has three children and has spoken about how a TV job could help him be home more often â&#x20AC;&#x201C; then the Cubs likely will turn to another candidate with managerial experience. Perhaps Mike Scioscia would come to the North Side if he parts ways with the gigantic mess that is the Los Angeles Angels of Suburban Los Angeles. Ron Gardenhire signed a 2-year deal to stay with the Minnesota Twins, so cross his name off of the list. There must be at least a few other qualified candidates. Hey, does anybody have Lou Piniellaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cell phone number? (Better question: Does Sweet Lou have a cell phone?) Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun to speculate on the Cubsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; next hire (well, maybe not fun for Sveum), but all of this commotion serves a valuable purpose for the Cubsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; front-office

fraternity. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re focusing on available managers instead of scrutinizing Epstein, who is on Day 707 of building a better tomorrow. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re evaluating Sveum instead of grading the moves of general manager Jed Hoyer and scouting director Jason McLeod, whose top prospect (Javier Baez) actually was drafted by former general manager Jim Hendry. Maybe Sveum would have turned out to be a great manager, or maybe he would have proved to be a dud. We never will know, at least not at Clark and Addison, because he never had a chance to manage a legitimate major league team. Maybe Girardi or someone else can help to turn things around. Until then, Epstein is left with a team filled with questions and an official statement filled with words. Painful. Patient. Winning. Soon. Tomorrow.

Players can watch for a lead to avoid

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

Alexander Smith, a 19thcentury Scottish poet, said, “Everything is sweetened by risk.” Not when you are a declarer. Then, you should aim to make your contract without risk. However, declarer usually faces various dangers. In today’s deal, he must work to keep a particular opponent off the lead. South cruises into four spades. West, who overcalled in clubs, leads the diamond king. After East signals with the jack, how should declarer plan the play? In the modern style, North responded three spades, showing a weak hand with four-card spade support. With a game-invitational hand, North would have cue-

bid three clubs. This is a good idea because it allows responder to bid both constructively and obstructively. Declarer starts with nine top tricks (six spades, two hearts and one diamond) and hopes

to establish dummy’s heart suit. But he is in danger of losing four tricks: one heart, one diamond and two clubs. However, he risks losing those two clubs only if East gains lead. South must duck at the first trick – avoidance play number one. East’s careful play of the diamond jack indicates that he also has the 10, a potential entry card. Then, after taking the second trick with his diamond ace, declarer draws trumps ending on the board and leads a low heart to his 10 – avoidance play number two. West wins with his queen, but cannot do better than cash the club ace to stop an overtrick. Note that if South takes the first trick or plays off three rounds of hearts, East gets on lead to push a club through South’s king. © 2013 UFS
