DIXON | CRUNDWELL AFTERMATH

Burke: Hold questions Mayor decides against allowing public inquiries tonight BY DEREK BARICHELLO dbarichello@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 526

DIXON – The stage was set for Rita Crundwell questions to steal the show tonight. On second thought: “We’d be a little more comfortable waiting until everything with the [lawsuit] settlement is finalized,” Mayor Jim Burke said Wednesday. The City Council is hosting a meeting at 6 tonight in the auditorium of Loveland Community

House, 513 W. Second St. Tuesday, Burke said he and other officials would take questions from the public during the meeting about Crundwell, the former comptroller now in federal prison for stealing nearly $54 million in city funds over 2 decades. Instead, Burke said Wednesday, those questions will have to wait until an out-of-court settlement is finalized in the city’s suit against auditors and a bank that will bring $40 million to Dixon. Going on as planned tonight will

be a presentation from Finance Director Paula Meyer on the city’s finances and options for spending the approximately $40 million it will receive – after legal fees are paid – from the settlement and sales of Crundwell’s assets. The public also will be able to give input on how to spend the money. Burke said he will address tonight the reasons for holding off on Crundwell questions. QUESTIONS CONTINUED ON A7

GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN IMPACT

Effects felt from D.C. to Morrison Ties to USDA present challenges BY BRENDEN WEST MCT News Service

MORRISON – Dave Harrison does not work for the federal government. He’s not on furlough because of the federal Inside government Congress shutdown. He takes no doesn’t have steps to end to worry about stalemate, A4 his paycheck even as the shutdown enters its second week, and no one has told Dave Harrison not to work since the shutdown took place on Oct. 1. Regardless, Harrison realizes day-to-day life for him will continue being inconvenient until Congress resolves its issues and the government is up and running. Even then, a week spent away from his office – which is less than 2 miles from his home – already has set costly repercussions in motion. “We’d have people who’d walk in our door and say, ‘I’ve got this problem; how do I fix this?’” he said. “There are people working on projects who may need to reach for different reasons, but they can’t.”

First frost expected to be late BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 529

The first frost of the year may be later than usual. The first frost, which usually marks the end of the growing season, is typically witnessed in northern Illinois between Oct. 1 and 10, said Jim Angel, the Illinois state climatologist with the Illinois State Water Survey. The first frost varies from region to region, and also by plant type, with northern Illinois typically seeing its first one before the rest of the state. The first frost happens once the temperature reaches 32 degrees, at which point the growing cycle for most annuals will stop, Angel said, adding that some perennials can continue to grow after the first frost. “The northwest part of the state, the dates [for first frost] are in the early October time frame on average,” Angel said.

WASHINGTON

As Fed chair, Yellen would face daunting challenges WASHINGTON (AP) — If she becomes the next Federal Reserve chair, the challenges that lie ahead for Janet Yellen will require both the steely intellect and the personable style that many attribute to her. The job as the world’s most important banker comes with a daunting to-do list: deciding when to slow the Fed’s stimulus, forging consensus from a fractious policy committee and calculating the effects of any economic slowdown from Washington’s budget fight. That’s in addition to monitoring volatile financial markets and fine-tuning the Fed’s communications. First, though, Yellen will have to get there. She will need to overcome Washington’s toxic political environment and win confirmation from the Senate to succeed Ben Bernanke when his term ends Jan. 31.

It’s almost enough to make you wonder why she would want the job. Yellen is Janet widely seen Yellen as a “dove� on Fed policy. She stresses the need to use the Fed’s tools to boost growth and reduce unemployment in the sluggish aftermath of the Great Recession, rather than worry about igniting future inflation. That view came through in her brief remarks Wednesday after President Barack Obama announced her nomination. Yellen said more needed be done to strengthen the economy. She added, though, “We have made progress. The economy is stronger, and the financial system is sounder.� In part for her perceived dovishness, Yellen has been outspokenly backed by many Democrats in

Congress and opposed by some Republicans. She wasn’t Obama’s first choice to lead the Fed. That was Larry Summers, a former Treasury Secretary and chief White House economic adviser who withdrew from consideration in the face of widespread opposition. Brian Gardner, Washington political analyst for Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, predicts that Yellen, widely respected as an academic economist and veteran policymaker, will be easily confirmed despite some Republican no votes. Then the hard stuff begins. Fed policymakers have been debating when and how to scale back their $85 billion per month in bond purchases designed to spur economic growth by reducing long-term interest rates, driving up stock prices and encouraging borrowing and spending. Yellen was a key architect of this strategy.

Last month, the Fed surprised financial markets by deciding not to scale back its bond purchases. It concluded that the U.S. economy wasn’t yet healthy enough for the Fed to ease its stimulus even slightly. Fed officials also worried about the budget stalemate that’s since led to a partial shutdown of the government and threatens to trigger a default on government debt. Many analysts now don’t think the Fed will reduce its stimulus before next year. And with the dovish Yellen as chairman, the Fed would likely be cautious about any pullback in early 2014. For now, there’s another problem, too. There isn’t much official economic data to go on. The shutdown that began Oct. 1 forced the Labor Department to cancel its all-important jobs report for September. It’s still unclear when the jobs report will come out.

OREGON

Bank officials won’t build after all Plans to buy Bemis Motor Co. building ‘not going to happen’ BY VINDE WELLS Shaw News Service

OREGON – Foot-dragging by a federal agency has prompted an Oregon bank to abandon plans for a new building. Roger Lehman, president of Harvard State Bank, said Monday the lack of a decision from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. means bank

officials no longer plan to buy the Bemis Motor Co. building, at Fourth Street (Route 2) and Franklin Street, from Jay Franklin for a new Community Bank of Oregon. “It’s not going to happen,� Lehman said. “It’s gone on for a year and a half, and the FDIC couldn’t give us a decision, so we’ve withdrawn. You know how

the government is – they do what they want to. It’s not fair to Jay. It’s gone on long enough.� Harvard Sate Bank owns Community Bank of Oregon, which is at state Routes 64 and 2 in the downtown. Lehman announced last year that the bank was buying the Bemis property, a block north of the current bank. Bank officials had planned to demolish the Bemis building and build a new bank with a drive-

through window and ample customer parking. Franklin said Tuesday that he was unaware that bank officials no longer planned to buy the property. “No one from the bank has let me know that,� he said. Franklin said he had a purchase contact with the bank for the property. At this point, Lehman said, the bank is not considering another location for a new bank and will continue to do business at its present spot.

OREGON

“We’re just going to take it a day at a time,� Lehman said. Approval from the FDIC was the final step in getting the building project off the ground. Because the Bemis property is within the downtown historic district, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, approval was first needed from the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency. State officials decided a year ago to allow bank officials to demolish the

Bemis Motor Co. building to make way for a new building – if the new design met certain requirements. Anne Haaker, a state historical preservation officer, said the new bank must be “architecturally compatible� with the downtown historic district, something Lehman said was in the plans. The IHPA had sought input from local citizens, agencies, and organizations before making its decision.

Landmark restaurant to close doors Man dies after

motorcycle crash

Longtime owner wants to retire

Brandon M. Kiro died Wednesday

BY VINDE WELLS Shaw News Service

OREGON – An Oregon icon will close its doors at the end of this month after more than 60 years in business. Maxson’s Riverside Restaurant and the Pride of Oregon Riverboat will serve meals for the last time on Oct. 31, owner Rich Wiesner said Tuesday. “The decision to close has been tremendously difficult, but we’ve come to realize that now is the best time for this to happen,� Wiesner said in a news release this week. In a phone interview, Wiesner, 66, said he wants to retire, but hasn’t been able to find a buyer for the landmark restaurant. “I’ve had it for sale for a year now, and I haven’t had one person [buyer] come through here,� he said. Wiesner said he still hopes to sell the restaurant. “It’s a good location,� he said. “It’s a good banquet facility.� Wiesner, who is the restaurant’s fourth owner, has owned and operated it since mid-September 1992, when he purchased it from the heirs of Rose Jones. John Maxson and his family opened the restaurant in 1952 and operated it until they sold it to John and Peter Tsioles in 1978. Jones bought the res-

launched on the St. John’s River and sailed into the Gulf of Mexico, to Mobile, Ala., on its month-long trip to Oregon. Its route took it up the Mobile River to the

Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway, then on the Tennessee and Ohio Rivers, and finally up the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers to Ottawa, where it was dismantled and bought overland by semitractortrailers to Oregon. The northbound lane of Interstate 39 was closed to traffic to allow the riverboat to be transported to state Route 64, which was closed while the semis made their way to the boat launch on River Road. Once at Oregon, the vessel was reassembled. Its maiden voyage on the Rock River was Sept. 9, 1989. A fire destroyed the original restaurant building on March 27, 1993, but it was rebuilt and reopened in the summer of 1994.

GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN

IN BRIEF

All quiet on Congress compromise front

Congresswoman’s rep in town today

No agreement reached despite looming default WASHINGTON (AP) – Its approval ratings scraping bottom, Congress took no discernible steps Wednesday to end the 9-day partial government shutdown or to head off a threatened default by the national Treasury. Instead, the House passed legislation that the Obama administration already had rendered unnecessary, while Speaker John Boehner and Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi met face-to-face – and promptly disagreed even about which side had requested the gettogether. Across the Capitol, the Senate marked time under 18th century rules, focusing its attention on a test vote – next weekend – on a $1 trillion increase in the debt limit to avert a default. “Enough is enough,� said Barry Black, the Senate chaplain who has delivered a series of pointed sermonettes in recent days as lawmakers careen from crisis to crisis. Evidently not. With Treasury Secretary Jack Lew on tap to testify before lawmakers on Thursday, officials said he was expected

AP

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, is escorted by Capitol Hill police Wednesday after a news conference about the ongoing budget battle on Capitol Hill in Washington. President Barack Obama was making plans to talk with Republican lawmakers at the White House as pressure builds on both sides to resolve their deadlock over the federal debt limit and the partial government shutdown. to reiterate that Congress needed to raise the government’s borrowing limit by Oct. 17 to be sure of preventing default. Despite warnings from leaders of both political parties that a financial default could plunge the economy into recession, cause interest rates to rise and home values to plummet, one Republican lawmaker, Rep. Mo Brooks of Ala., said a default wouldn’t be the worst calamity to befall the country. “Insolvency and bankruptcy� would be worse, he said, warning that that would be the result

‘‘ ’’ Enough is enough.

Barry Black, Senate chaplain

of yet another increase in the debt limit without attaching measures to bring down the federal budget deficit. The partial shutdown ground on, although an Associated PressGfK poll suggested the impact was anything but uniform. Only 17 percent of those polled said they or their households had experienced

any impact, while 81 percent said they had not. Who’s fault? Some 62 percent said Republicans were mostly or entirely to blame for the partial shutdown, which began on Oct. 8, while

49 percent said as much for President Barack Obama. There was widespread agreement on one point. The country is widely dissatisfied with elected lawmakers. A new Gallup poll put approval for Congress at 11 percent, a mere one in every nine adults. The AP-GfK survey made it 5 percent approval – and only 3 percent among independents, whose votes are the main prize in next fall’s midterm elections. Nationally, a whopping 83 percent of adults disapprove of Congress’ actions. Inside the Capitol, neither private meetings nor public votes offered any hint of progress toward ending the latest gridlock. Republicans are seeking negotiations on budget, health care, and other issues as the price for reopening the government and raising the debt limit. Obama and Democrats say no talks unless legislation is first passed.

OREGON | BLACK HAWK STATUE REPAIRS

Assessing the damage Repairs planned as time, weather catch up to Chief

WASHINGTON

U.S. cutting millions in Egypt aid Decision could cause further strain on relations

because the official was not authorized to comment by name. The U.S. decision to slash aid to Egypt will create new friction in Washington’s already uneasy relations with the government that ousted the first democratically elected Egyptian president. And the consequences won’t end there. The move will anger Persian Gulf states, push Egypt to seek assistance from U.S. rivals and upend decades of close ties with the Egyptians that that have been a bulwark of stability in the Middle East. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said in a statement Wednesday that the U.S. will withhold delivery of certain large-scale military systems as well as cash assistance to the Egyptian government

WASHINGTON (AP) – The United States is cutting hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to Egypt in response to the ouster of President Mohamed Morsi and the crackdown by the military-backed government on his supporters. The U.S. provides $1.5 billion in aid each year to Egypt. While the State Department did not provide a dollar amount of what was being withheld, most of it was expected to be military aid. A U.S. official said the aid being withheld included 10 Apache helicopters at a cost of about $500 million. The official provided the information only on condition of anonymity

OREGON – Ogle County’s most famous centenarian is getting a 3-D full-body scan this week. Structural engineers began work Tuesday to determine the condition of the Black Hawk Statue before they decide the best way to repair the 102-yearold concrete sculpture. Aldo De La Haza and Daniel Schultz, who work for the Dynasty Group in Chicago, used technology to look beneath the surface of the statue, which sits on a high bluff at Lowden State Park, northeast of Oregon. De La Haza said his company has been hired to investigate the condition of the structure and do non-destructive testing. Their high-tech scanners allow them to see inside the concrete to assess the statue’s condition and to determine the amount and location of steel reinforcing. Another company will do scanning with rotating lasers to create an exact three-dimensional model of the statue, he said. The findings will help to determine what needs to be done to repair and preserve the statue, which has been ravaged by time and weather. The statue, which is under the authority of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, has cracks, and large pieces of its concrete surface have dislodged. The folded arms of the 50-foot monolith have been especially affected. The cost of the assessment and repairs has been

until “credible progress� is made toward an inclusive government set up through free and fair elections. The U.S. will still provide health and education assistance and money to help Egypt secure its borders, counter terrorism and ensure security in the Sinai. The U.S. also will continue to provide parts for military equipment coming from the United States as well as military training and education. The U.S. military has continued shipments of thousands of spare parts for American weapons systems used by the Egyptian forces, including armored bulldozers for border security, radars and missiles. In Cairo, military spokesman Col. Ahmed Mohammed Ali declined immediate comment.

The Sterling - Rock Falls Historical Society Presents Andy Hogan as Will Rogers

Earleen Hinton/Shaw News Service

Aldo De La Haza and Daniel Schultz, structural engineers with the Dynasty Group of Chicago, examine the Black Hawk Statue on Tuesday afternoon northeast of Oregon. The assessment work will continue this week on the 102-year-old statue. estimated at $625,000. More than half the money for the project came from a $350,000 grant the IDNR received from the state Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity. The rest came from donations, as well as funds raised since 2010 during the annual Oregon Trail Days festival at Lowden Park. A large contributor was the Jeffris Family Foundation in Janesville, Wis., which gave a $150,000 matching grant. Frank Rausa, a mem-

ber of The Friends of the Blackhawk Statue Committee, said in January that the laser scanning would provide a permanent record of the statue and include drawings, plans and elevations of the statue to use in the current restoration and in future years. Created by sculptor Lorado Taft in 1911 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the statue stands on a 125-foot bluff overlooking the Rock River. It draws 400,000 visitors a year, tourism officials say.

The October meeting of the Sterling - Rock Falls Historical Society will feature a very special program. Andy Hogan from Claremore, OK, will be our guest and will present his interpretation of Will Rogers, an American Legend. Mr. Hogan relates personally to the man he touts in his duties at the Claremore Will Rogers Museum. Since 2004 he has been the museum’s historical guide and Will Rogers interpreter, especially involved with bus tours and school groups. He wears his Will Rogers hat and, with rope in hand, leads tours through the museum’s nine galleries filled with art, artifacts, and memorabilia relating to the life and times of Will Rogers born in Oologah, Indian Territory. Hogan has acquainted himself with the chatty ways of Will Rogers and a long history in the classroom, as an educator and principal, relates to children as well as adults.

Late frost good for late-planting farmers FROST

CONTINUED FROM A1

“It varies year to year. ... Maybe on a rare occasion it can wait until November to see that real cold temperature.� Central Illinois typically sees its first frost in mid-October and southern Illinois in late October. “The coldest it has got [in Morrison] was back on Sept. 14, down to 39 degrees,� Angel said. “That’s as cold as we’ve gotten so far. Looking at the forecast for the next few days, it’s not indicating we’ll see frost anytime soon.� According to the National Weather Service, the coldest temperature in the next week is expected on Tuesday night, when the low is forecast at 43. A late frost means a longer growing season, which can be good for farmers who may have planted their crops late. Mark Fassler, 53, farms 4,100 acres of commercial corn and soybeans between Sterling and Dixon with his brother. “We weren’t that super late to get things in,� he said. “In our area, it’s getting close to normal frost so it won’t affect [too much].� On Wednesday, Fassler said he expected to finish his soybean harvest, which will account for about half of his 4,100 acres, and then switch to harvesting his corn

today. “The beans have been better than we expected,� Fassler said. “Normally, you say if you get a big rain in August, it gets the bean yield. We didn’t get that and were expecting a disaster. And they turned out to be a hair better than average.� August was abnormally dry in the Sauk Valley and much of northern Illinois and the Midwest, where 25.6 percent of the region was declared in drought, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor. Sauk Valley farmers could be done harvesting soybeans this week, and then move on to corn next week, said Gunnar Ortgiesen, 28, the CFO and general manager of Tettens Grain LLC in Sterling. The soybean yields have been in the 50to 60-bushels-an-acre range, which is a little better than average and better than what was expected about a month ago, Ortgiesen said. Corn yields have been ranging between 160and 220-bushels an acre, but Ortgiesen said next week should be a better indication of what the crop will be. Because of the government shutdown, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Agriculture Statistics Service hasn’t been releasing its weekly weather and crop reports, which includes the percentage of completed harvesting.

Mayor talks about Harrison’s office uses USDA phones request for audit of credit card use MORRISON

CONTINUED FROM A1

QUESTIONS

“I had an intuition and wanted to satisfy myself,” Burke said Tuesday. “I wanted to see if there was any monkey business going on. There weren’t any red flags, just one of those cases of ‘trust but verify.’” Auditors went to City Hall and asked to take a look at credit card files, Burke said. Blaine told him that Crundwell would not be suspicious of the review, because auditors were coming to City Hall at various times asking for files. “He reported back to me that he didn’t find anything,” Burke said. “I never thought anything of it again. I started to think maybe something wasn’t going on after all.” Blaine did Crundwell’s personal tax returns and even asked her on a date, the accountant said in the November deposition. After talking about the credit card inquiry, Burke stopped taking questions about Crundwell, saying then that he would address them at the meeting. He changed his mind on that Wednesday. An overflow room is planned tonight in case crowds are too large for the auditorium. Two microphones will be used to keep public comments flowing, and a time limit on comments will be enforced depending on how many people sign up to speak. A number of media outlets are planning to be there, including Al Jazeera America and CNBC’s “American Greed.”

CONTINUED FROM A1

City officials did not speak about the case while the lawsuit was ongoing. In an interview with Sauk Valley Media on Tuesday, the mayor was asked about requesting in 2002 that auditors look into Crundwell’s credit card accounts. Ron Blaine, who was an equity partner for CliftonLarsonAllen, the city’s contracted auditor at the time, said in a deposition statement during the lawsuit that Burke had asked him about a decade ago to look at her credit card expenses, specifically an American Express account. Blaine was one of two accountants who were interviewed in November by the city’s attorney, Devon Bruce, in connection with the city’s lawsuit against the firms that audited the city’s finances. The mayor, whose call to the FBI in April 2012 led to Crundwell’s arrest, was suspicious of the former comptroller’s lifestyle, he told SVM in January. According to Blaine’s statement, nothing was found – but he left it unclear whether the account was even investigated. There was an investigation, Burke said Tuesday. Blaine told him nothing was found. The mayor was suspicious of Crundwell stealing petty cash, not knowing at the time what he knows now: that she was taking millions from the city.

He is a resource conservationist for the Whiteside County Soil and Water Conservation District, a job that mostly entails educating youths, landowners and the public about environmentfriendly farming practices. Harrison works apart from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, but his work and the department’s are so entwined that the district in Morrison even operates out of a government-owned building. “I don’t work for USDA,” he said, “so there’s a whole different realm there. In Illinois, it’s very common for SWCDs and the USDA to be co-located.” When Congress failed to agree to a spending bill, it meant “non-essential” government workers – people who don’t immediately affect the public safety – were given unpaid leaves of absence. For the USDA, that meant furloughing about 14,000 of the department’s 30,000 workers, includ-

and said it’s likely the same for most people in his position. Will people who are unable to reach him be turned away from sound land use for good? “There’s landowner anxiety as well as there is employee anxiety,” Harrison said. “OK, I’ve got this project, where do I go now? That builds up, and eventually they get discouraged. They may even walk away from the project.” He’s worked 25 years to build up local conservation, something he now finds to be a direct casualty of a federal government shutdown. But Harrison doesn’t have an answer for who’s to blame for all of this. He also sympathizes with the government employees he works with who don’t receive paychecks until their furloughs are finished. “I think there was some anxiety over pay,” he said. “They’re not getting paid right now. They may in the future, but right now there’s not a check coming in. ... Even a 2- to 3-week period without a paycheck, there’s going to be some strain.”

Lawmaker: Chicago schools get too much money SPRINGFIELD (AP) – An Illinois lawmaker has proposed doing away with a unique arrangement under which Chicago Public Schools received $235 million more in state grant money in a single school year than it would have if it were held to the same standard as every other district in the state. State Rep. Sandy Pihos, a Republican from the western Chicago suburb of Glen Ellyn, said it’s unfair that Chicago automatically gets

work, the shutdown also comes at the worst possible time. When local producers finish their harvest, there’s limited time between when the ground is clean of crop and when the ground is too cold to manipulate. If the shutdown lasts into November, it could mean Harrison, and others like him nationwide, will get to fewer, if any, projects designed to prevent sediment runoff and erosion – both contributors to unhealthy ecosystems. “We’re getting to a point where it may start to be too late for some of those,” Harrison said. It’s also forced Harrison into inconvenient work circumstances. For the time being, he works out of home, his car and a non-USDA-owned shed next to Morrison’s facility. He’s able to take calls and use what resources he has left to him. It’s not enough, he said, to get certain work done. His biggest fear pertains to his new-found lack of availability. He estimated he deals with a dozen landowners each week,

ing all four of the USDA employees at the Whiteside County building (Harrison’s co-workers). It also means Harrison can’t do his job effectively. His office uses USDA phones, which are currently inoperable; he taps into USDA databases and resources on a daily basis, which he can no longer access. People who need to reach him – landowners wishing to improve the quality of their land use – have no foreseeable way of contacting him, unless, by chance, they know his cellphone number, or that he even works with the SWCD. Even then, Harrison has a very difficult time informing them, since most of the information he requires is no longer at his fingertips. “I can receive calls on my cellphone on a limited basis where I’m reacting to those,” he said. “I’ve almost had to start a network to get people to me. The assistance I can give is based on my knowledge versus maybe a pamphlet or instructions I could print out to somebody.” In Harrison’s line of

Fire prevention and politicians: The heat is on W

hen big disasters happen, common sense dictates that people try to figure out how to prevent similar calamities in the future. The Great Chicago Fire brought tremendous destruction and death as it swept through the city on Oct. 8-10, 1871. National Fire Prevention Week incorporates the anniversary of that fire to encourage people to practice fire safety. The focus this year is on kitchen fires. Fire safety officials point out that 40 percent of home fires start in the kitchen.

One-third of home cooking fires are the result of inattentive cooks. Two-thirds of home cooking fires happen because food or other cooking materials ignite. Ranges account for nearly 60 percent of home cooking fire incidents. Ovens account for about 15 percent. Don’t think that cooks or their loved ones can easily drop what they’re doing and flee a kitchen fire. Between 2007 and 2011, nearly 400 people were killed in cooking-related fires. The estimated average annual number of kitchen

fires during that time frame? 156,600. No wonder Fire Prevention Week focuses on kitchens and cooks. It’s truly a case where, as President Harry Truman liked to say, “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.� Truman knew well of what he spoke. Upon his

shoulders rested such weighty decisions as the first wartime use of the atomic bomb, the Berlin airlift, U.S. involvement in the Korean War, the firing of Gen. Douglas MacArthur, and racial integration of the military. He got all that done while working with Congress to approve annual

budgets and manage the U.S. debt. By comparison, today’s leaders look less than impressive as new financial disasters loom. Will those debacles be averted? Or will their anniversaries be precursors to future special weeks? Perhaps “Shutdown Prevention Week� will be created to remember the importance of national leaders working together to approve the federal budget. “Default Prevention Week� may be designated to recall the time in 2013 when the U.S. government

failed to pay its obligations. Those weeks have yet to be created, and we hope there is no need for them. But Fire Prevention Week is real, and we hope people act to reduce the threat of fire in their kitchens. Just as flames can sweep out of the kitchen and into the house, the flames of governmental discord may sweep out of Congress and the White House to points far beyond the beltway. It’s time for politicians to face the political heat, not flee from it, and put out those fires.

CAPITOL SPOTLIGHT

Time for an intervention in Congress Pragmatism must replace extreme views LEE H. HAMILTON Bloomington, Ind.

The American public has lost patience with Washington. The question is, now what? Congress is unable to do its job. It displays neither competence nor responsibility. It lurches – reeling from crisis to crisis, each one self-manufactured in an effort to postpone the reckoning from some earlier crisis. It shut down the government over a temporary budget. Now it’s threatening the financial credibility of the U.S. government and the security and safety of the American people. Three years of lastminute spending decisions have culminated in a television standoff with no actual negotiations. Too many members of Congress reject the notion that accommodation and time-honored procedures allow them to fulfill their responsibilities to the American people. They use their legislative skill to engage in brinksmanship rather than address the country’s fundamental problems. Economic growth? Cre-

ating jobs? Putting the federal budget on a sustainable path? Don’t look to Congress. They’re too busy coming up with the next shortterm tactic to confront the other side. Every day they dither, they keep the government from addressing the nation’s real problems. Even worse, they’ve managed to raise real questions in this country and abroad about whether our system of government can work. Are we saddled with a national legislature paralyzed by unendLee H. ing conHamilton flict? Are we capable of tackling our major problems? We are on the road to a government that cannot plan, a country shackled by perpetual uncertainty, and a loss of faith in our institutions both at home and abroad. WE DO NOT HAVE to continue down that road, but we do have to confront a core problem. The political center in Congress has weakened to the point of ineffectiveness, if not near irrelevance. That’s fine with some people in Washington, who are comfortable with gridlock and don’t

THE SECOND solution lies with members of Congress. Contemplating a government shutdown, a Kentucky congressman recently explained his stance by saying, “All that really matters is what my district wants.� This is not an uncommon view, but it’s a distressingly limited one. Our system depends on members who believe it’s also their responsibility to lead and inform vot-

ers, who are willing to weigh the national interest as well as parochial concerns and who have confidence in our system to resolve political differences. In other words, we need members of Congress devoted to making the system work. We need men and women in office who understand that when the voters give us a divided government, they have no choice but to accept the distribution of power and work with it, regardless of what they wish were the case. We need legislators who realize that those on the other side feel just as passionately and deserve their respect, and who are committed to finding a solution to our problems. We change laws in our democracy and solve our most difficult issues in this country not by bringing government to a halt, but by fighting out the issues before the voters in an election. At the end of the day, we have to move the country forward – and we need to elect members of Congress who are willing and able to do that.

her with all the information needed to understand her baby’s development. Ultrasounds available at both Hope Life locations allow us to show her baby’s heartbeat. We offer classes that can help teach her how to become the best mommy possible. There are classes for daddy as well. For a mother who chooses life but doesn’t feel she is prepared to parent, we provide information about the adoption option with a referral to a local adoption agency. We also offer sexual integrity classes in order to teach self-respect, absent in so many of our youths. We approach the unplanned

pregnancy from all sides. Hope Life exists to eliminate the need for abortion. Our mission is to empower individuals to make educated, life-affirming choices by ministering the truth about health, sex and pregnancy. Hope Life is a nonprofit organization. We need your donations and support. Help save the life of an unborn baby, stop the destructive effects of PAS, and provide a supportive learning environment for all those affected by unplanned pregnancies.

think its consequences will be dire. Our government’s inability to deal with problems, they argue, is good – a government that’s able to act, they believe, creates more problems than it solves. Likewise, some people acknowledge polarization as a problem, but blame it on an electorate that prefers a divided government, split between the parties. All I can say is that divided government in the past – think Ronald Reagan and Tip O’Neill – didn’t keep Congress from creatively addressing national chal-

lenges. Divided government is not easy, but it is not unusual, and it can work. Politicians don’t deserve all the blame. Voters share responsibility: more people have to turn out to vote. The more people who vote, the better the chances to strengthen the political center – that is, moderates and pragmatists. That’s because low turnout brings out the most ideologically intense voters, who in turn reward the most polarizing candidates. A Congress more representative of the American

people rests on expanding efforts to convince people to vote, and beating back the barriers to voting.

THE READER’S VOICE

Cellphone recycling aids victim services SARA HOFFMAN Sterling

October is here, which means nights are getting colder and the smell of fall is in the air. October also brings Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Although documentation of domestic violence dates back to as early as 753 B.C., it wasn’t until 1987 that Domestic Violence Awareness Month was observed. In 1989, legislation was passed by the U.S. Congress and every year since then to

help provide key leadership in the effort to stop domestic violence. In the past year, the YWCA of the Sauk Valley served more than 750 victims of domestic violence. We greatly appreciate the community for all the donations, which include all the old or used cell phones. The YWCA of the Sauk Valley joins forces with Shelter Alliance in recycling old and used cell phones for our domestic violence program. The YWCA of the Sauk Valley uses the proceeds to continue to provide valuable victim services, which include safe shelter, counseling, advocacy, and a 24-hour hot-

line. If you have any old or used cell phones lying around, please bring them to either the Sterling or Dixon YWCA office to support our work. Note to readers: Sara Hoffman is a legal advocate for the YWCA of the Sauk Valley.

As a previous client advocate and now board president of Hope Life Center, I have mentored and prayed with women whose lives have been tormented by PAS.

BY TY REYNOLDS treynolds@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 554

Dixon coach Dave Smith has believed for some time now that his Dukes are taking big strides in the right direction. Last week, he saw proof to back up those beliefs. Trailing against LaSalle-Peru Logan in the fourth Fassler quarter last FriDixon day night, the senior Dukes (2-4, 1-1 NIB-12 West) saw a big pass play called back because of a holding penalty. In the past, that might have been cause for some heads to droop and hopes to be dashed. But not this time, and not this team. Instead, Dixon drove the field and scored the go-ahead touchdown in a 13-10 victory, the program’s first conference victory over somebody not named Streator since 2006. FRUIT CONTINUED ON B3

Erie-Prophetstown’s Ethan Howard looks for running room during a Class 3A first-round playoff game last fall. The Comets and Panthers met twice last year, with Newman winning each time. The two teams will meet again on Friday, with the Three Rivers North lead on the line.

Best of times

Comets, Panthers riding high into big game BY DAN WOESSNER dwoessner@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 555

If there’s one person who understands what it takes to build a successful high school football program in the Sauk Valley, it’s Mike Papoccia. For the last 34 years, he’s been at the helm of the Newman Comets. In that time, he has 278 wins, 23 playoffs appearances and four state titles. Not only can he guide players, but he also can tell when opponents are going in the right direction. One thing he knows is that Erie-Prophetstown (5-1) is headed in the right direction.

When: 7:30 Friday Where: Wayne Hein Field, Erie Radio: 102.7 FM Twitter: Christopher Heimerman (@CHeimerman_SVM) He’ll get a front row seat to that improvement on Friday night, as the Comets head to Wayne Hein Field in Erie in a battle between the two teams

leading the Three Rivers North. “It’s Week 7, and by the time you reach Week 7, you expect to be playing in big games,” Papoccia said. “Every game is a big game. This will be a big game.” While the Comets (5-1) have been a dominant force in the Sauk Valley for years, the Panthers have been an afterthought for much of the last decade. It wasn’t until last year – behind workhorse fullback Zach Inskeep – that the Panthers competed well in the conference and qualified for the playoffs. TIMES CONTINUED ON B4

A rendezvous with Geneseo isn’t exactly what the doctor ordered for a football team that is reeling. Nevertheless, that is what lies ahead for Sterling as it prepares for a crucial road date with the Maple Leafs on Josh Friday night. Knie The implicaSterling tions are many. senior Geneseo (5-1, 2-0 Northern Illinois Big 12 West) is already in the driver’s seat as far as the league title is concerned. It is the lone NIB-12 West team without a conference loss, and will be a huge favorite in Weeks 8 and 9, road games against Streator and LaSalle-Peru. This week’s game figures to be the last significant road block on the way to a league title for the Maple Leafs. GUT CONTINUED ON B4

Kish puts it in cruise Skyhawks unable to keep up with 9-0 Kougars BY LARRY BRENNAN lbrennan@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 550

DIXON – Last month, Sauk pushed Arrowhead Conference leader Kishwaukee to five sets. On Wednesday, the Skyhawks were only able to take one set from the Kougars. Kishwaukee has run roughshod through the Arrowhead, improving to 9-0 in league play with a 25-17, 25-20, 19-25, 25-17 win at Sauk. “They’re a really good team. I’m Philip Marruffo/pmarruffo@saukvalley.com Sauk Valley’s Kayla Kurz drops down for a dig during Wednes- pretty proud of how we played,” day’s match against Kishwaukee in Dixon.

After unsuccessfully aiming high, the Cubs now will be searching for elusive managerial gold in their hunt for a replacement for Dale Sveum. Their pursuit of popular Joe Girardi ended Wednesday when the Yankees announced their manager has re-signed for 4 years. That the Yankees were able to extend Girardi, 48, that long for at least $16 million shows their faith in him as well as it convinced him not to entertain an offer from the Cubs once his current contract expired Nov. 1. Although none of the current Cubsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; candidates have the managerial success or profile of Girardi, a former Cubs player who has won a World Series and three division titles in six seasons with the Yankees, it has become even more imperative for the Cubs to hire a leader who can convey a strong but

positive message â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially to young players â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with the help of a strong support staff. Girardiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to stay means the Cubsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; search could last past the World Series, though President Theo Epstein has been prepared for that scenario. It also means that every candidate will fall under more analysis regarding their qualifications and ability to work with young players in whom the Cubs have invested heavily in hopes of sustained success. It also could mean the Cubs may feel a stronger need for Sveumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s successor to retain at least some of the coaches. First base coach Dave McKay was instrumental in helping Junior Lake make the transition from third base to the outfield. Pitching coach Chris

       

   

Bosio, despite coping with massive turnover, supervised the development of left-handers Travis Wood and Chris Rusin, and right-hander Jake Arrieta. Of the three publicized candidates, Manny Acta has the most experience, with six seasons with the Nationals (2007-09) and the Indians (2010-12), but never produced a winning year. Acta, 44, managed the Indians to a second-place finish in 2011, but was fired late the next season. Actaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s low-key teaching style might fit well with Epstein, who prefers a â&#x20AC;&#x153;love before tough loveâ&#x20AC;? approach with the current group of Cubsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; players. Acta met with Epstein, general manager Jed Hoyer and assistant GM Randy Bush on Monday. A.J. Hinch, 39, a Stanford

graduate, has an association with Hoyer dating back to their days with the Padres, for whom he currently serves as an assistant GM. He was thrust from director of player personnel to manager of the Diamondbacks in May 2009 despite no previous managerial experience. He compiled an 89-123 mark over part of two seasons, in which his teams were in last place in the National League West, and baserunners complained on more than one occasion on the tardiness of getting signals from Hinch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He understands the big picture a lot better [now],â&#x20AC;? said a source familiar with Hinchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s previous struggles. Two sources who have worked with Padres bench coach Rick Renteria as a player and coach insist he shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be overlooked as a candidate. Renteria, 51, has managed eight seasons, most recently at TripleA Portland in 2007.

Bucs stopped by Wainwright Cardinals advance to third straight NLCS; L.A. up next BY R.B. FALLSTROM !03PORTS7RITER

ST. LOUIS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Nobodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better than the St. Louis Cardinals when they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to lose. Adam Wainwright went all the way on the mound, and St. Louis got tworun homers from David Freese and Matt Adams to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-1 Wednesday night, advancing to the NL championship series for the third straight season. Wainwright scattered eight hits in his second dominant win of the division series, coming through for the Cardinals in a winner-take-all Game 5. St. Louis gets to stay at home to open the NLCS against the well-rested Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted it bad. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably the most nervous Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever been,â&#x20AC;? Wainwright said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a whole lot of nerves when I pitch. Before I pitched today, I was pretty nervous.â&#x20AC;? By ending Pittsburghâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

storybook season, the Cardinals improved to 8-1 when facing postseason elimination the past 3 years. They also won Game 5 of the NL division series in Washington last year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even though Wainwright got rocked â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and at Philadelphia in 2011. Freese homered in the second inning off rookie Gerrit Cole, and Adams connected in the eighth against reliever Mark Melancon to make it 5-1. Pete Kozma added an RBI infield single, and Wainwright finished it off by striking out Pedro Alvarez with two on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just so fired up for this team and this city right now,â&#x20AC;? Wainwright said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cardinal fans were rockinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; today, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just fired up to be here.â&#x20AC;? The Pirates, who ended a record streak of 20 consecutive losing seasons this year, were held to one run in each of the final two games of their first playoff appearance since 1992.

Yes, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playoff buzz in the air at A.C. Bowers Field these days.

Smith said the key will be to get the defense â&#x20AC;&#x153;cranked upâ&#x20AC;? and playing like it did in last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s win. He was pleased with the defensive effort against the Cavaliers, and also was happy to see the offenseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to â&#x20AC;&#x153;do what it had to doâ&#x20AC;? to get the team a win. If the special teams can play a full game like it did in the second half, and the Dukes continue to cut down on turnovers and penalties, Smith is excited about what this team can achieve. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Weeks 2 and 5, we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show up, but that should be out of our system at this point,â&#x20AC;? Smith said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ottawa is going to come out and take it to us, give us their best shot and then ask us what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got. If we respond like we did last week, we should be fine; if we respond like we did against Geneseo, it could be a long night. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m interested â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and optimistic â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to see which one itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be.â&#x20AC;?

Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford (right) is scored on by the Blues’ David Backes during the second period Wednesday in St. Louis.

Steen’s late slap shot beats Chicago Forward scores game-winner with 21 seconds left "Y4HE!SSOCIATED0RESS

ST. LOUIS – Alexander Steen got just enough on a slap shot in the closing seconds to get the puck past Corey Crawford and give the St. Louis Blues a win over the rival Chicago Blackhawks. Steen’s drive with 21.1 seconds left trickled through Crawford and lifted the Blues to a 3-2 victory against the defending Stanley Cup champions on Wednesday night. Steen broke down the left side as part of a 3-on1 rush. Instead of passing, he let go a shot from just inside the left circle. “You pick a spot,” Steen said. “I don’t know that it’s really how hard it is. It’s more where you put it.” The Blackhawks (1-1-1) lost for the first time in

regulation. Chicago coach Joel Quenneville was particularly upset that his team gave up an odd-man break so late in a tie game. “You’ve got to get that game to overtime,” Quenneville said. “You take one [point], maybe two. You don’t get none. That’s unacceptable. “There was not a lot of mistakes. We played a good game. But you can’t make a mistake like that.” The Blues (3-0) matched their best start to a season, also done in the 1969-70 and 1993-94 campaigns. “Playing Chicago is always a big game,” Blues goalie Jaroslav Halak said. Halak, who made 26 saves, has been in net for all three wins. Vladimir Tarasenko and David Backes also scored for St. Louis. Patrick Kane scored for the third straight game for the Blackhawks, and Jonathan Toews had the other Chicago goal. Crawford made 31 saves.

Britton dreams of TDs L AKE FOREST â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Like all of his teammates, Eben Britton yearns for gamedays. Today, the Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 25-year-old offensive lineman will strap on his shoulder pads beneath his No. 62 jersey. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll squeeze into spandex pants and lace up his cleats and grab his helmet with the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Câ&#x20AC;? on the side before taking a short, expectant walk to the field. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just waiting for my number to get called, man,â&#x20AC;? Britton said. It happened plenty of times Sunday against the New Orleans Saints, as Britton logged 16 snaps. It could happen again today, when the Bears host the New York Giants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No. 62 is eligible on the offense.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;No. 62 is eligible on the offense.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;No. 62 is eligible on the offense.â&#x20AC;? Now, if only Chicagoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most eligible lineman could catch a pass. As the Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; jumbo tight end, Britton serves as a sixth lineman who also can run downfield to catch balls if necessary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always joking with them, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Put me on a seam route or something,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Britton said. Because the 6-foot-6, 308-pound behemoth from Arizona has good hands. At least, he thinks he has good hands. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like I have a good hands,â&#x20AC;? Britton said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;for a guy that never gets his hands on the ball.â&#x20AC;? Pretty funny stuff, unless youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Bears offensive coordinator

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I liked that we came out and pushed strong in the third set,â&#x20AC;? Kasner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We played a lot better, but in the fourth set, we kind of died.â&#x20AC;? Trailing 15-10 in Set 4, the Skyhawks used a 5-2 spurt to make it a

two-point game. Kasner and Scheppers had kills, and Kurz a block before a Scheppers ace made it 17-15. The Kougars responded with a 5-0 blitz, and soon thereafter closed out the match. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get any runs going on them,â&#x20AC;? Sauk coach Jay Howell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If our servingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not spot

on, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough to run an offense against their size. I was a little disappointed the way we started the match, but as it went on we played better.â&#x20AC;? Samantha Scroggins led the way for Kishwaukee with 15 kills. Lyndi Scholl added 11, and Akeelah Muhammad had 10. Sauk libero Brianna Correa had 15 digs.

Settling may keep contract in reach

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

A.N. Other’s latest is: “A glutton’s greedy sense of taste shows little sense but lots of waist.” At the bridge table (unless you are playing in a pair event, where overtricks can be valuable), a greedy player who risks his contract trying for an overtrick shows little sense and lots of waste. In today’s deal, how should South plan the play in four hearts after West leads a low spade? Note North’s raise to two hearts. Yes, he has five spades, but with such a weak hand, two hearts is correct. If North bid one spade and South were to rebid two clubs or two diamonds, North would rebid two hearts, showing only a

doubleton heart. South would underestimate the fit. South might think he has only three possible losers, but he has four: one diamond and three clubs. He also has

only nine winners: one spade, six hearts and two diamonds. The “obvious” line is to lead a trump to dummy at trick two, then to play a club to the jack. Here, though, a West in midseason form will win with his queen and return a trump. South will then play a club to his king, but West will take that and lead his last trump to defeat the contract. Yes, that is unlucky, with West producing both club honors, three trumps and the killing defense. But it is much easier to lead a club from hand at trick two. Then a club ruff in the shorter trump hand for South’s 10th trick cannot be prevented. Those club honors are black herrings. And West would be left to apologize for failing to find the lethal initial trump lead. © 2013 UFS
