SERVING ROCK FALLS, STERLING AND THE SURROUNDING AREA SINCE 1854

ILLINOIS PENSIONS

Panel divided on proposed fix Partisan split could further stall solution SPRINGFIELD (AP) – Four Republicans want a pension crisis fix to be more farreaching. One of six Democrats wants more concessions to unions. With the Illinois Legislature’s fall veto session a week away, an Associated Press survey of a special 10-member committee tasked with finding a solution to the state’s enormous public pension shortfall found that half the members, all Democrats, support a recently proposed plan estimated to

save about $138 billion. The other half – a key Democrat and all four Republicans – say they still have major concerns. A partisan split is developing as Republicans – three of whom are running for higher office next year – are demanding more information on additional cost-cutting measures, which could take weeks. “We know the Democrats can’t pass this on their own,” said Republican Sen. Bill Brady. “Unfortunately, I don’t see anything happening legislatively for at least 4 weeks at the earliest.” But with the committee serving as a microcosm of the General Assembly and its struggle over the issue, a Democratic

senator, Linda Holmes, also has yet to come on board. By law, the full Legislature cannot consider the emerging proposal unless it is signed by six of the committee’s 10 members. Here is a breakdown of where committee members stand:

Amboy Marsh opens to more than 200 visitors BY DEREK BARICHELLO dbarichello@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 526

AMBOY – More than 200 people caught a glimpse of what Illinois looked like about 300 years ago, before farming took over the landscape. Now, the public is welcome to do the same. The Amboy Marsh Wildlife Sanctuary, a rare and fragile ecosystem, which includes endangered turtles and unique plant life, was showcased during an open house Saturday, and trails on the grounds were introduced to the public. The Illinois Audubon Society, with the help of a handful of organizations, acquired 272 acres of wetlands this past winter near the intersection of U.S. Route 52 and Mormon Road about 3 miles south of Amboy. Illinois has the second most disturbed soil in the United States, because of its strong agriculture, said Tom Clay, executive director of the Illinois Audobon Society, but this piece of land has managed to go mostly undisturbed.

COMMUNITY WATCH

PUBLIC SQUARE ROSARY CRUSADE LEFT: Gene Grennan, 71, of Rock Falls, recites the Our Father prayer during the Public Square Rosary Crusade Saturday at Grandon Civic Center in Sterling. The crusades are organized by American Needs Fatima, a group that has a stated mission of fighting the movement toward secularism in America. Local organizers said about 137 people showed up for the inaugural rally in the Sauk Valley. The Oct. 12 event is scheduled nationwide to coincide with the 1917 Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima in Portugal. The local rally was sponsored by the Sterling Deanery of Catholic parishes. Local organizers said they hope to have the crusade in Sterling again next year. BELOW LEFT: Scott and Dawn Harrielle, of Milledgeville, recite a Hail Mary during the prayer rally. BELOW RIGHT: Sterling Newman High School seniors Allison Shipman (left), 17, of Dixon, and Kayci Howell, 17, of Dixon, recite the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary during the prayer rally.

PANEL

CONTINUED FROM A1

Last spring he supported a Senate-backed plan that would have given retirees an option of the benefits received during retirement, saving $58 billion according to Senate estimates. He now is pushing the $138 billion savings plan. It includes a provision that would reduce a current 3 percent annual compounded cost-of-living adjustment in retirement benefits to half the rate of inflation and a reduction in employee contributions by one percent. Sen. Linda Holmes, Aurora: Holmes, a co-sponsor of the Senate plan, told the AP she’d “have a hard time� voting for the $138 billion framework. Like many Democrats, she believes that it would be unfair to punish state employees who have paid their dues over the years, just because the state has not made prompt payments to fund the pension system. State employee unions adamantly oppose the new plan. Rep. Elaine Nekritz, Northbrook: Nekritz, an assistant House majority leader, has become increasingly hesitant to predict when a vote might be called. Nekritz said she supports the latest proposal because it brings down the amount of state funds spent on pensions each year. Because the deal contains both savings and concessions for union employees, she calls it “a compromise that can pass both chambers.�

Sen. Daniel Biss, Evanston: Biss, a mathematician by trade, says the committee’s work is so close to a deal that a bill should be ready by the veto session. He said the committee’s latest proposal is “in a ballpark I can be comfortable with.� Rep. Mike Zalewski, Riverside: Zalewski said he supports the proposal, which he calls “a sustaining model for how we deal with pension reform.� Previously, he had endorsed a more conservative House plan projected to save $167 billion. He says the time to act is now, but it is important to address Republican concerns for the sake of bipartisanship. Rep. Art Turner, Chicago: Turner supports the framework, calling the proposal a “good compromise� between previous plans. But he said he’s open to considering Republican additions. “Anything that will bring everyone to the table we’re willing to consider,� he said.

Republicans

Sen. Bill Brady, Bloomington: Brady, one of four 2014 GOP gubernatorial contenders, said the Democrats’ proposal doesn’t contain significant enough reforms for him to back at this point. The list of GOP demands includes raising the retirement age, giving employees the option of moving to a 401k-style plan, and

increasing employee contributions and cost-ofliving adjustments. They have requested savings estimates from the state’s various retirement funds. Rep. Jil Tracy, Quincy: Tracy, who is campaigning for lieutenant governor as Sen. Kirk Dillard’s running mate, says the proposed committee plan “wasn’t going where I needed it to be.� Tracy acknowledges a need for urgency, but said she wants a guarantee that future Legislatures will meet required payments. “I’m willing to keep at the table so we keep doing this,� she said. “But it has to be something that’s solvent and sustainable.� Rep. Darlene Senger, Naperville: Senger, who is making a bid for Congress, said she was among those who introduced the list of additional Republican demands. She said she is concerned that the percentage of the proposed funds to meet pension obligations each year is too high. “We had suggestions out there before that made more sense,� she said. Sen. Matt Murphy, Palatine: Murphy, a deputy Republican leader, called the latest plan “back-loaded in its current form� because it relies on future lawmakers keeping promises. He declined to say if he would vote for it. “Past general assemblies’ unwillingness to do that is exactly what got us here in the first place. We only get one bite at this apple.�

Rare species found in marsh MARSH

CONTINUED FROM A1

Visitors learned quickly Saturday of the species unique to the marsh, and how volunteers continue to discover new ones by the day. A recent study of moths near some blueberry plants rare to Northern Illinois discovered six Eastern newts, which have not been seen in this region since the 1980s, said John McKee, a member of the board of directors. Scores of volunteers have worked tirelessly to rid the area of invasive plants and set up trails. Efforts are ongoing to restore the ecosystem to its natural state. Sandhill cranes headline a bird list of about 93 species that have been found on the premises. Also, about 380 plant species have been found, such as pinweeds, puccoons, asters, and white indigo. “There’s a lot here that hasn’t been discovered yet,� said Jan Williams, an Amboy resident and volunteer, who painted a mural of the Blanding’s turtle on The Nest, a shelter at the marsh’s entrance. “You have to refer to unusual books just to see what a lot of things are, because they are not considered common to the area. I’m looking forward to all that’s being discovered.� Efforts to preserve the marsh have been ongoing for nearly three decades.

No dogs are allowed, however, because of the sensitive plant life and wildlife there. The marsh is open to people for walking and bird-watching. It also has become a scientific research and environmental education resource for the region, as the marsh is the northernmost sanctuary under the protection of the Audubon Society.

t a Sterling City Council meeting the other day, members got into a discussion about economic development and property taxes. “I would much rather see a retail development come to this community and lighten up my [property tax] load on my piece of property,� Ward 3 Alderman Barry Cox said. “My piece of property�? Not home? Maybe I’m overanalyzing Cox’s choice of words. But not too long ago, a resident told the council that Cox no longer lived in Sterling. A big dumpster sits in the driveway; the house appears vacant. Neighbors on East 20th Street, where Cox lived for more than two decades, say he has moved out of town. Meanwhile, folks on Hillcrest Drive, 5 miles outside of city limits, say Cox is their new neighbor. When I interviewed Cox about this last month, he acknowledged buying the Hillcrest house in 2010, as reflected in county records. When I asked him where he hangs his hat these days, Cox said, “It’s none of your damn business where I sleep.� He told me that he

Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Hijuelos dies NEW YORK (AP) – Oscar Hijuelos, a Cuban-American novelist who won a Pulitzer Prize for his 1989 novel “The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love� and whose work often captured the loss and triumphs of the Cuban immigrant experience, has died. He was 62. Hijuelos died of a heart attack in Manhattan on Saturday while playing tennis, according to his agent, Jennifer Lyons. “The Mambo Kings Play Songs of Love� became a best seller and earned him international acclaim.

Love Lucy,� which starred Lucille Ball and her Cuban bandleader husband, Desi Arnaz. The book was eventually turned into a movie starring Armand Assante and Antonio Banderas. In his 2011 memoir, “Thoughts Without Cigarettes,� Hijuelos writes of how he struggled against being labeled an “ethnic� writer and notes that even today there are few other Latinos whose work has been awarded the same recognition. His other novels include “Our House in the Last World,� “Empress of the Splendid Season,� “Dark Dude,� “The Fourteen Sisters of Emilio Montez O’Brien� and “A Simple Habana Melody.� He also received the Rome Prize and grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Guggenheim Foundation.

Mayor Jim Burke said he will know by Tuesday if this finalizes the settlement to the point where public officials will be allowed to answer questions about the Crundwell theft. Burke, at Thursday’s town hall meeting to discuss the settlement money, said that the City Council has been under disclosure restraints regarding the

Crundwell incident. Questions will not be addressed until everything is “signed, sealed and delivered� involving all parties, he said. No discussion of how to budget the settlement money will be conducted during Tuesday’s meeting. Finance Director Paula Meyer gave her recommendations for paying down debt, setting aside a cash reserve and tackling sewer projects. Residents also voiced their opinions. The City Council will

talk about its options for using the money during its strategic planning sessions after a city administrator is hired. Also, Tuesday’s special meeting agenda includes an executive session. The council will meet behind closed doors to discuss a job candidate, said Police Chief Danny Langloss, special assistant to the council. A final candidate for city administrator was selected by a committee and that candidate visited City Hall last

Wednesday, Langloss said at the town hall meeting. The City Council is hoping to take a final vote to hire the candidate at its Nov. 4 meeting. The next step is to conduct a thorough background check, similar to those given to police officers, Langloss said last week. After the check is conducted, the candidate will be introduced in a meet and greet with the public before the council votes.

1986 MURDER

Man who killed Oregon woman to be executed Angie Crowley’s brother worked for this day for 27 years TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – Oregon High School graduate Angie Crowley was making her first long trip through Florida on Memorial Day weekend in 1986 and was taking extra care to make sure she’d arrive OK. This was in the time before cellphones and GPS, and she was prone to getting lost, so she spent William 3 hours on the Happ phone with her brother Chris before making the 300-mile drive from Fort Lauderdale to Yankeetown. Chris was 1,300 miles away in Oregon, and both laid maps out on the floor to plan a route. “We just sort of mapped it out together. It was 1986 – the oldschool way,� he said. Crowley, 21, never arrived at her destination. She prearranged with her friend to meet at a convenience store in Crystal River so she could be guided the last few miles of the trip. Crowley found the store, but before she could get to the pay phone, William Happ smashed her car window and kidnapped her. He beat her, raped her, and strangled her with her pants before throwing her body into a canal. Now, more than 27 years later, Happ is scheduled to

be executed on Tuesday at Florida State Prison in Starke. It’s a day Chris Crowley has pushed for through an online petition and an email campaign to Gov. Rick Scott’s office. “He killed my sister, he took her life. But when he took that life, he created so many other victims,� Crowley said. “What he did affected everybody. It ate my mother up. I changed jobs and moved all within 3 months.� The murder shook Oregon. Angie Crowley was a popular student at Oregon High. After graduating, she attended Northern Illinois University before moving to Fort Lauderdale in December 1985. She worked as a travel agent to help pursue her dreams to travel the world. “He took away the potential. There were seven kids in that family, and she had the greatest potential of everybody. She had the personality, she had the looks, she had the smarts, and she had the attitude. She really, really accomplished things, and he took that,� Crowley said. “We were never able to see it.� And the praise is not just because he’s a loving brother. Angie Crowley’s friends said she had a magnetic personality. She was a talented musician, honor student, and a cheerleader with many friends. Always smiling, she never said anything bad about anybody. “She was a sweetheart. Everybody just loved her; she

She was just a gorgeous, gorgeous girl,� said Jim Kaufman, a classmate who visited Crowley in Florida just before her slaying. “All of her classmates were devastated. Everybody in the whole town was. The whole town from young to older people knew her very well. She was very, very outgoing.� She was also a thoughtful friend who made great efforts to stay connected, said Sharon McBreen, who moved from Illinois to Florida in 10th grade. Not only did Crowley write long letters, but she mailed

ILLINOIS

McBreen a senior yearbook signed by all her former classmates. Crowley’s note in the book was two pages long. “She was just one of those really good friends who never missed your birthday. The card was always on time. She would write me six-page letters,� McBreen said. “She would just write, front and back. She filled these letters with everything that was going on in town, and what she was thinking and what she wanted to do.� She loved her new home in Florida. In Oregon, she often spent time on the Rock River waterskiing and boating, and she was happy to be living near the ocean. And coming from

a small town, she was excited about being in South Florida and was looking forward to more travel adventures – she booked a trip to Hawaii with her mother. That trip never happened because of the murder. McBreen traveled from Gainesville to Fort Lauderdale the weekend Crowley was murdered. At one point Crowley had talked about staying in town if McBreen was going to be there. But instead she kept her plans to meet a friend from college and spend some time on the Gulf coast. “It’s before cellphones and before Google Maps, she’s trying to take a trip and she took all these precautions. She put a radio in the back seat to play loud so she wouldn’t fall asleep, she told her roommates where she was going, she had this whole route all mapped out,� McBreen said. “She was very careful anyway, so she took all these steps to make sure she was going to have a safe trip.� Her friend fell asleep waiting for the phone call to meet Crowley. When she woke the next morning, she alerted Crowley’s family that she was missing and a search began. Later that day, a fisherman found her body. “She just ran across this guy, and that was it. It was just completely random,� McBreen said. “When you think about random crimes, how random could it have been that she was there at the same time he was?�

Xerox: Access restored for food stamps Berry gardening program Friday CHICAGO (AP) – Shoppers in Illinois and 16 other states should be able to use their debitstyle food stamp cards after vendor Xerox Corp. restored service following a system outage. Januari Smith is spokes-

e chronicle glorious news to-day – a victory over those who have been striving to create dissensions at the North, and giving, whether intentional or not, aid and comfort to those now in arms against the Union. To-day the freemen throughout the North are rejoicing over the result of their loyal endeavors to frustrate the schemes of those who have attempted to prolong the war and make it eventually result in favor of the rebels. From the rocky coast of New England, across our broad prairies, to the golden strand of the Pacific slope, the grand cry of “Union and liberty, now and forever, one and inseparable� reverberates, and the mountaineers of Maine shout words of kindly greeting to the Quakers in Pennsylvania, the ploy-boys of the West, and the daring adventurers beyond the snowy cones of the Sierra Nevada, echo and re-echo the shout with hearty good will. The elections which have been held this fall are decisive. By a Union majority of 300,000 votes, the policy of “Honest Old Abe� has been endorsed, our soldiers honored and encouraged, and decisive rebuke given those who have striven to bring to our own doors all the horrors of civil war. In Pennsylvania, the Union ticket is elected by from 20,000 to 25,000

The rebels had so placed him, telling him that he could not live, and that after the fort should be full of Yankees, he must pull the string, and so send them all, himself included, into eternity. But the wounded rebel, although most dead when our men entered the fort, had a faint hope that perhaps he might live if properly attended, and gave that as a reason for not pulling the string. He was taken to an ambulance, and died while being conveyed to the hospital.

An analysis of the state budget such as the one released last week by the Civic Federation hardly counts as earth-shattering news. The federation, a nonpartisan watchdog group based in Chicago, said Illinois’ current budget was a “lost opportunity� because lawmakers didn’t prepare for the dire financial realities that lie ahead. “This year was a lost opportunity as legislators failed to prepare for the extreme financial challenges everyone knows are on the immediate horizon,� said Laurence Msall, Civic Federation president. Those realities? Ballooning pension payments and the expiration of the temporary income tax increase. This space has been devoted many times to those financial pitfalls. The state’s pension plan is unsustainable, and nobody in Springfield is willing to fix it. The income tax increase, pushed through by Democrats in a lame-duck session of the General Assembly in 2011, likely is to be made permanent by

lawmakers, further limiting the disposable income that taxpayers have available to help the state’s struggling economy. In addition, Democratic lawmakers are floating the idea of a progressive income tax, which would be disastrous for job production in Illinois. The federation’s analysis of the $35.4 billion budget, which took effect July 1, noted that while lawmakers used an unanticipated, one-time spike in tax receipts to pay down some overdue bills last year, the backlog is still projected to be about $5.8 billion at the end of the current fiscal year. Combine that with the $100 billion in unfunded pension obligations, and, surprise, things don’t look good. Of course, things haven’t looked good for years now. Not that Springfield has done anything to correct it. Pensions have gone unreformed. Spending has not been curtailed. Medicaid reform hasn’t proceeded. The state’s business climate is as favorable as Congress’ approval ratings. So, yes, the Civic Federation’s analysis hardly told us anything we didn’t already know: Illinois is in bad shape, and taxpayers have been waiting forever for lawmakers to address it.

Many cities dealing with next revolution FRED TURK Rock Falls

“The Next American Revolution: Sustainable Activism for the TwentyFirst Century� (2011) by Grace Lee Boggs describes the revolution that is occurring in the inner city of Detroit. Jobs and people have fled. Tax money is scarce, and all the multiple characteristics of poverty are present. Other cities are experiencing the revolution as well. We can learn from their courage, understanding, and persistence. The characteristics of this revolution are based on: Self-governing local communities; An active citizenry in which everyone shares positions of leadership; Earth-centeredness based on food security and environmental restoration; Replacement of victimhood by becoming part of the solution to the large list of issues and difficulties; Perception of being an integral part of the overall pattern of life; Development of a community of love as

BOX OFFICE

‘Gravity’ still in stratosphere 3-D space drama in top spot again MCT News Service

LOS ANGELES – No rival came within the orbit of “Gravity� at the box office this weekend. The 3-D space drama was No. 1 for a second weekend, collecting an impressive $44.3 million, according to an estimate from distributor Warner Bros. That means its ticket sales dropped only 21 percent from its debut – the best second-weekend hold for any movie in wide release this year. On its opening weekend, about 80 percent of the film’s business came from 3-D sales; this weekend, that figure actually increased to 82 percent. After about 10 days in theaters, the film starring Sandra Bullock as a

~Healing ~Hope ~Here

stranded astronaut has raked in $123.4 million in the U.S. and Canada and appears on its way to grossing at least $250 million domestically. Abroad, the film is playing in 38 foreign countries and has so far made $68 million – most of which came from Russia, Germany and Australia. With Alfonso Cuaron’s hit still selling tickets at near light speed, newcomer “Captain Phillips� had to settle for the runner-up position. The Paul Greengrass-directed thriller starring Tom Hanks got off to a slightly better-than-expected start, debuting with a healthy $26 million. Meanwhile, Robert Rodriguez’s “Machete Kills,� the only other film that hit theaters nationwide this weekend, flopped with an embarrassing $3.8 million.

Heading into the weekend, prerelease audience surveys indicated “Captain Phillips� would open with about $20 million. But even with “Gravity� still pulling adults to the multiplex, “Phillips� was able to attract an older crowd of its own: Roughly 62 percent of those who saw the Hanks movie this weekend were over 35. Critics have been enamored with the movie, and filmgoers loved it too, assigning the picture an average grade of A, according to market research firm CinemaScore. Produced by Sony Pictures for $55 million, “Captain Phillips� is based on the 2009 saga of a merchant mariner who was kidnapped by Somali pirates while steering a cargo ship around the Horn of Africa.

Firm cellphone rules should curb girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s compulsion Dear Abby: I am upset with myself for getting my granddaughter the cellphone she begged me for. I wish the phone companies would put restrictions on them. I wondered why she was feeling tired in the mornings until I caught her on the phone at 4 a.m. She canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get dressed in the morning because sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s texting every 2 minutes. When her friend, who she was always very active with, came over, the girl wound up watching a movie with me because my granddaughter would not stop texting in her bedroom. She wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like this until she got this new boyfriend, and he must have no life at all. Should I talk to his parents? It is consuming her life, morn-

ing, noon, and night. I have told her she canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the phone until her homework is done. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Frustrated Grandma in North Carolina Dear Grandma: You shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect the phone company to decide what is acceptable in your home. As the adult in your household, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to you to assert control. If your granddaughter lives with you, by all means talk to the boyfriendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents about this. But equally important, enforce cellphone limits. If you think she canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be trusted not to use it after lights-out, see that she gives you her phone at bedtime. In the morning, return it to her once sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dressed and ready for school. And when she

invites friends over, make sure she understands it is her responsibility â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not yours â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to entertain them, because what she did was rude. Dear Abby: I have met a darling man Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m compatible with in every way. We have similar tastes in just about everything from decorating and landscaping to entertainment.

My problem is his past. From what he says, he has never had a monogamous relationship, even during his marriage. After the divorce he pursued anything female. When we are out at a club or a concert, I constantly encounter women he has been with. He tells me he is happy for the first time in his life and he would never cheat on me. I have never been the jealous type, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really not now. I just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be the woman everyone is laughing at because they know his history. As I said, we are content and happy, but I need to move past this or move on, I guess. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Current Woman Dear Current Woman: You say this â&#x20AC;&#x153;darlingâ&#x20AC;?

man has never had a monogamous relationship â&#x20AC;&#x201C; before, during, or after his marriage. Therefore, the odds arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t great that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have one with you. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to ask yourself (not me) if you would be willing to tolerate his fooling around if you were his wife. Dear Abby: I wrote to you 3 years ago about throwing parties on unique days, such as 7-707, 9-9-09, etc., and you printed my letter. Well, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still at it, even though the special numbers have run out. I planned a brunch on 11-11-11. Everyone who attended chipped in $11 apiece. The money that was left over I donated to a hunger program.

Twelve of us met for lunch at noon on 12-1212, and this time each person paid â&#x20AC;&#x201C; guess how much â&#x20AC;&#x201C; $12. This year, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be having brunch at 10:00 on 11-12-13, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m already planning ahead for next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebration, which will be on 12-13-14 at 1500 hours. Any suggestions? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Claire (Again) in Bethlehem, Penn. Dear Claire: You appear to be a fun, clever woman with a zest for life. And yes, I do have a suggestion. How about making next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebration a tea with a holiday theme? After all, â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;tis the season,â&#x20AC;? and any leftover money could be donated to a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s charity.

WASHINGTON

Republicans: Deal less likely after proposal McConnell, Reid meet briefly Sunday afternoon, fail to find common ground -#4.EWS3ERVICE

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Several Republican senators said Sunday that a new Democratic request to increase govern ment spending is hurting chances of a deal to end the 13-day-old shutdown. Leaders of the Democratic-led Senate were dismissive of a proposal Saturday, in part, because it kept in place for too long the automatic spending cuts that went into effect this year. Another round of those decade-long cuts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; known as the sequester and approved by Congress and the White House in 2011 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is expected in January. The Republican complaints came as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., spoke briefly Sunday afternoon but

failed to reach a deal to end the shutdown or find common ground that would allow Congress to approve raising the federal debt ceiling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our discussions were substantive, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll continue those discussions,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Reid said before the Senate adjourned Sunday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m optimistic about the prospects for a positive conclusion to the issues before this country today.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said maintaining spending cuts is the same for Republicans as maintaining the Affordable Care Act is for Democrats. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all about Obamacare being the law of the land, but soâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the sequester,â&#x20AC;? he said on CNNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;State of the Union.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we exceed that, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real big step in the wrong direction.â&#x20AC;?

People rally at the World War II Memorial Sunday in Washington. The rally was organized to protest the closure of the memorial and access to it by World War II veterans who traveled there on Honor Flight visits. The memorial has been closed because of the partial federal government shutdown. Republicans went too far in their initial proposals by trying to delay or force repeal of the new health care law as part of legislation needed to keep parts of the government open

when money ran out with the end of the fiscal year Sept. 30. Now, he said, Senate Democrats are doing the same with their bid to end the sequester and increase spending.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;They now are overreaching,â&#x20AC;? he said on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fox News Sunday.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at status quo right now. The last 24 hours have not been good.â&#x20AC;? Corker has been part of

several groups trying to craft a larger fiscal deal in recent years, including one with the White House, but none have attracted enough bipartisan support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we need to do is get this back to the middle of the road, act like adults,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nothing is going to happen, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think, if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about breaking those spending caps.â&#x20AC;? Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, repeated the same message on NBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Meet the Press.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to deal with the underlying problem, which is the spending problem,â&#x20AC;? he said. Senators appeared on the talk shows Sunday morning as all eyes turned to the Senate to find a solution to reopen the government and avoid possible default on government debts. Senators of both parties said they believe Congress will find a compromise before Thursday, when the government is expected to start running out of ways to pay its debts.

Pack hobbles home victoriously BY DAVID GINSBURG AP Sports Writer

AP

Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson – one of three still standing after a 19-17 win over the Ravens on Sunday in Baltimore – carries the ball into the end zone for a 64-yard touchdown.

BALTIMORE – For much of the afternoon, Aaron Rodgers was ducking oncoming linemen and misconnecting with hurried throws. When it counted, however, Rodgers came up with the big plays. Rodgers threw a 64-yard touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson, Eddie Lacy ran for 120 yards and Mason Crosby kicked four field goals as the Green Bay Packers beat the Baltimore Ravens 19-17 on Sunday. Rodgers went 17-for-32 for 315 yards with one touchdown and one interception. He played most of the game without two of his top three receivers – James Jones hurt his left knee on a first-quarter play, and Randall Cobb left after being struck on his right knee on a tackle by Matt Elam. Still, Rodgers was magnificent. His 64-yarder to Nelson gave Green Bay a 16-3 lead late in the third quarter.

POSTSEASON DRY RUN Sterling freshman Landis divine on his home course BY CHRISTOPHER HEIMERMAN cheimerman@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, Ext. 552

STERLING – Jon Landis is old school. Like Old Testament old school. The Sterling freshman rode his Bible passage of choice to a sixth-place finish and helped the Golden Warriors place third as a team at the Sterling Invitational on Saturday morning at Hoover Park. Landis blew by three runners at the 1-mile mark to move from 10th to seventh and eventually reeled in another en route to a 15:46 finish. “I always surge and pass them,” Landis said. “My father

inside

always told me that if you go and try to pass somebody right by their shoulder, they’re going to go with you. But if you gain speed and then pass them, they don’t know what hit them.” “I don’t think he feels pain,” Sterling senior Keaton Dir said of Landis. “I think he just goes.”

Sans rain, talented girls field can’t rein in Struck BY CHRISTOPHER HEIMERMAN cheimerman@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, Ext. 552

STERLING – Sorry, Megan Barnhart. Even if it poured, no one was catching Mailin Struck. Struck, a German exchange student at Riverside-Brookfield, ran away with the Sterling Invitational on Saturday morning at Hoover Park. But Barnhart used the nearly ideal running conditions –

We weren’t running like ourselves today. It felt like we were moving fast, but we got to the 2-mile mark and someone yelled the time, and it didn’t sound good.

Rock Falls freshman Brayden Hamblen

CONCORD, N.C. - The Bank of America 500 was about to morph into the Hendrick Motorsports Classic Saturday night. Then Brad Keselowski got in the way of the marketing plan. Keselowski, the 2012 Sprint Cup champion who failed to qualify for the Chase this season, overtook Kasey Kahne on the final restart to win at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Kahne was second, followed by points leader Matt Kenseth. Who knew? “I never give up,” Keselowski said. “A lot of struggles. I knew we could get them. I love hard racing. Kasey ran me hard but he ran me clean.” For most of the night, it seemed to be a tossup between Kahne and Hendrick teammate Jimmie Johnson. Kahne led a race-high 138 laps to Johnson’s 130.

67 degrees and overcast – to place 14th in 18 minutes, 45 seconds at the 25-team talentladen event. Still, imagine if it had rained. “Before the meet, a lady was saying she hopes it doesn’t rain, and I told her, ‘No! We want it to rain. It’s the perfect weather to run in,’” Barnhart said. “The rain energizes me to run faster. The more rain the better.” Barnhart and fellow freshman Maggie McPherson held the ninth and 10th positions through the first loop around the park and through the woods.

On the calendar Local events Today

BY JIMMY GOLEN !03PORTS7RITER

BOSTON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; David Ortiz revived the Red Sox. The slugging DH smoked a game-tying grand slam in the eighth inning, then Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit the walk-off single in the ninth that sent Boston past the Detroit Tigers 6-5 Sunday night to even the AL championship series at 1-all. The Tigers were cruising to their second straight win at Fenway Park, with starter Max Scherzer taking a no-hitter and a 5-0 lead into the sixth inning. But with one swing, Ortiz changed everything. His two-out shot sent right fielder Torii Hunter jackknifing into the Boston bullpen in a futile attempt to catch the ball, making it 5-5. Saltalamacchiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s single came after a series of Tigers misplays in the ninth. A wild throw, a wild pitch and a missed catch set up the game-ending hit. The teams head to Detroit for Game 3 on Tuesday. Justin Verlander will face Bostonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s John Lackey.

Rodgers completed only seven passes after halftime, yet those plays totaled 199 yards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Days like today remind you of why you love this game so much,â&#x20AC;? Rodgers said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Offensively, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re struggling a little bit, but we found a way to make enough plays to win.â&#x20AC;?

On the tube TV listings

The Ravens (3-3) had won 13 straight at home against NFC foes. Rodgers received ample aid from a depleted defense. Despite playing without injured linebackers Clay Matthews and Brad Jones, the Packers limited Baltimore to 47 yards rushing and registered five sacks, including three by A.J. Hawk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of been our motto for a long time around here: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Next man

It all added up to Green Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first road win following losses at San Francisco and Cincinnati. Green Bay went up 9-0 in the third quarter when Crosby kicked a 50-yard field goal to cap a drive that featured a 43-yard pass play from Rodgers to Jarrett Boykin.

Baltimore answered with its first score, a 23-yard field goal by Justin Tucker following a 59-yard completion from Joe Flacco to rookie Marlon Brown. Harassed and hurried most of the afternoon, Rodgers finally came up with a signature moment. He started to his left, rolled right and lofted a perfect spiral to Nelson, who had gotten behind Lardarius Webb.

LEXINGTON - Land, air and...kick return. The West Carroll Thunder were firing on all cylinders far from home Saturday afternoon. West Carroll (2-5) scored seven touchdowns and only failed on its last 2-point conversion in a 54-38 victory over the Lexington Minutemen (1-6). Senior quarterback Shaun Magill was 8-for13 passing for 167 yards and four touchdowns, and also rushed six times for 51 yards and a score. Two of his touchdown passes went to Steven Santeramo (3 receptions, 81 yards), and Marshall Benters also had a big day in the passing game (2 receptions, 73 yards, TD). Brandon Sturtevant rushed five times for 71 yards and a touchdown, and also took a kickoff return to the house in the second quarter. The Thunder drove about 3 hours for the game and dealt with a 23-minute halftime break.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a back-andforth game,â&#x20AC;? West Carroll coach Mike Bicksler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was proud of our guys. First, you have the long drive down there, and I told our guys we might not be going to the playoffs, but this is what playoff football is all about. Being able to make a long drive and then compete in hostile territory.â&#x20AC;? Logan Kolat scored on an 82-yard kickoff return and totaled 154 yards on 26 carries for Lexington (1-5). Kolat also caught a 29-yard TD pass from Andy Jolly, who the Thunder picked off three times. West Carroll led 32-26 after three quarters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was proud of the way our guys dug in in the fourth,â&#x20AC;? Bicksler said.

Dir kicked late to place 31st (16:25), while Nick Olds (35th â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 16:27), Cody Lund (40th â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 16:39) and Zach Alston (41st â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 16:40) rounded out the Warriorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; formidably packing attack. Last year, Sterling placed 15th in the team standings. Pleasant Valley cruised to repeat as team champion with 58 points, 43 fewer than the 101 for Conant, which boasted the individual champ in Zach Dale (14:59). Sterling posted 153 points, edging Alleman by four. Throughout his races, Landis leans on the verse Isaiah 40:31: â&#x20AC;&#x153;But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not be faint.â&#x20AC;? It yields results, unlike when Landis took on cross country in sixth grade. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was in the way back, and I never really did good,â&#x20AC;? Landis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Lord, if you want me to do good, let me do good.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? His times fell dramatically his seventh-grade year and, a year ago, he and middle-schooler Jacob Gebhardt almost exclusively finished 1-2, unopposed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always had the approach that I put in 50 percent, God puts in his 50 percent, and I started going up in ranks,â&#x20AC;?

Seth Williams placed 17th (16:04) and 22nd (16:10), respectively. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t running like ourselves today,â&#x20AC;? Hamblen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It felt like we were moving fast, but we got to the 2-mile mark and somebody yelled the time, and it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sound good.â&#x20AC;? With the postseason looming, Hamblen wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly disappointed to get a stinker out of the way, although missing an opportunity on a local course stung. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad that I got a bad time out of the way,â&#x20AC;? Hamblen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can just come back smarter and do better next year. I just know that next year that I gotta follow the front pack and stay with them. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let them go, because I can get a way faster time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be fine. Seth and I will come back strong.â&#x20AC;? Despite Dixon placing second last year and boasting the top returning runner in Simon Thorpe, the seniorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dad and the Dukesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; coach, Evan Thorpe, gave his varsity runners the day off. It had to be hard for the younger Thorpe to watch Allemanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Zach Hird â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with whom heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had several run-ins, including being nipped in Peoria after edging him in track â&#x20AC;&#x201C; place second in 15:19, his dogfight with Dale eventually fizzling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But he was fine. He understands,â&#x20AC;? Evan Thorpe said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Hird] is one of the front-runners in the conversation of winning a [Class 2A] state title. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to beat him today. We want to beat him in 4 weeks.â&#x20AC;?

While McPherson eventually slipped to 18th, Barnhart focused on the orange shoes of a trio of Schaumburg juniors who finished eighth through 10th. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The last mile, I just heard everyone telling me to go get the runner in front of me, and I just tried to stay on her heels,â&#x20AC;? Barnhart said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She started to push it, and I started to push it, and that really helps me.â&#x20AC;? Elie Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connell led the foursome of Saxons in the top 10, placing fifth in 18:08, to help Schaumburg place second with 78 points. Minooka placed all five of its counted runners â&#x20AC;&#x201C; paced by third-place finisher Ashley Tuttâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 18 flat â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to take the team title with 74 points. Hoffman Estates was third with 94 points, rounding out a three-horse race. The only other team to sneak in under 200 points was Conant with 196. There was nothing sneaky about Struckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance. She blew away the pack from the gunâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fire to finish in 17:02, 52 seconds before DeKalbâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kelsey Schrader made it through the chute. At the 2-mile mark, a Clinton coach uttered, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really going to mess things

up,â&#x20AC;? knowing sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d pour down the homestretch as packs passed by in the other direction. About 5 minutes later, a Bettendorf parent hollered â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wunderbahr!â&#x20AC;? as she glided toward the finish line. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t her finest race. That was in Peoria recently, where she experienced her less-than-finest hour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was my best race, even if I went the wrong way,â&#x20AC;? said Struck, who hails from Pinneburg, which is near Hamburg. She and another runner were so far out front on the state meet lawn that she accidentally followed lapped runners the wrong way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was upset, especially because it was a really good race,â&#x20AC;? Struck said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Normally, I cannot pass people on the finish. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a good finish. But at that race, I could do it. I was very sad. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But today was one of my better races. At the last few races, I had like no competition. At least at the beginning today, there were people who stayed with me. That was very good.â&#x20AC;? Katie Anderson led Rock Falls with a 36th-place finish in 19:26, 8 seconds faster than sophomore teammate Makaley Velazquez, who placed 39th. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the last legs of a farewell tour for Ander-

son, who fell in love with the sport as a sophomore â&#x20AC;&#x201C; despite learning she has asthma in the process â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and calls her fellow Rockets and coaches her family. In the more literal sense, her kid brother, Nick, awaited her at the end of the chute with her inhaler. He knows he has an important job, albeit a difficult one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just hard catching up to her,â&#x20AC;? Nick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really like watching her and seeing her do so good, and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moved up a lot. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s come from the No. 7 runner to No. 1 and No. 2.â&#x20AC;? The Rockets placed 19th as a team with 446 points. At the 2-mile mark, Rock Falls coach Mark Truesdell hollered, â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is your last race here!â&#x20AC;? to Anderson. Per usual, he pushed the right button. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had to put that in my head, and I had to move up as far as I can,â&#x20AC;? Anderson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was adrenaline. I tried kicking it, but it was all in my head, all mental.â&#x20AC;? She teared up at the thought that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be saying a lot of goodbyes over the next month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really sadâ&#x20AC;ŚIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m gonna start crying,â&#x20AC;? Anderson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been my family since I was a sophomore. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so hard to think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost over.â&#x20AC;?

CHICAGO MARATHON

Kenyans rule in Chicago Kimetto sets record in incident-free race BY ANDREW SELIGMAN AP Sports Writer

CHICAGO – Just a few years ago, Dennis Kimetto was a farmer, tending corn and cattle in Kenya. Now, he’s shattering marathon records. Six weeks removed from a bout of malaria, Kimetto broke the course mark Sunday in capturing the Chicago Marathon. Compatriot Rita Jeptoo was the women’s winner in the first major marathon in the United States since the Boston bombings. Kimetto finished in 2 hours, 3 minutes, 45 seconds, leading a 1-2-3 finish for Kenyan men. He beat the mark of 2:04:38 set by Ethiopia’s Tsegaye Kebede last year. He pulled away from Emannuel Mutai over the last few miles and was alone with both arms raised as he crossed the line. It was his second major victory this year to go with a win at Tokyo in February – not bad for someone who not long ago was working the land in the west Kenyan town of Eldoret. He said through an interpreter that he had been running on his own when he had a chance meeting with Geoffrey Mutai, a star marathoner and fellow Kenyan. Mutai asked Kimetto to join his camp near Eldoret and train with him. Kimetto finished second in his marathon

debut in Berlin last year, won Tokyo and added to his status as one of the world’s best Sunday. Before the race, there was a 30-second moment of silence to honor the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. Mutai (2:03:52), the 2011 London winner, also beat Kebede’s time but finished 7 seconds off the lead. Sammy Kitwara (2:05:16) was third. Jeptoo followed her victory at Boston by easily taking her race, finishing in 2:19:57 after losing in a

sprint a year ago. There was no one near Jeptoo as she turned into Grant Park, wearing a wide grin and waving to the crowd. Jemima Sumgong Jelegat of Kenya (2:20:48) was second, followed by Maria Konovalova of Russia (2:22:46). The winners each earned $100,000. Kimetto gets an additional $75,000 for the course record, while Jeptoo gets another $40,000 for finishing under 2:20:00. On a sunny day and with ideal conditions, the race drew a Chicago Marathon-record 40,230 runners. But there was a different feel to this event in the aftermath of Boston, where the bombings killed three people and injured more than 260 others.

Despite struggling on offense, Northern Illinois still found a way to win. The 23rd-ranked Huskies used their defense and kicking game to beat Akron 27-20 on Saturday night after the offense went 1-for-15 on third down conversions.

The offense, meanwhile, had enough to engineer five scores as the Northern Illinois extended its home winning streak to 23 straight, the nation’s longest current run. Jordan Lynch threw for two touchdowns and ran for another as Northern Illinois extended the nation’s longest current home winning streak to 23 games.

Considering first trick can be wise

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

Wilson Mizner said, “Life’s a tough proposition, and the first hundred years are the hardest.” At the bridge table, for most players the first trick is the hardest. They do not give it nearly enough thought. Today’s deal, for example, would defeat most players – although, to be honest, many would still make the contract courtesy of a misdefense by East. South is in three notrump. West leads his fourthhighest spade and East puts up the nine. What should happen? I agree with North’s not using Stayman with 4-3-3-3 distribution and honors in every suit. South starts with eight top tricks: two spades (given the opening lead), four diamonds and two clubs. In addition, two

more tricks can be established in hearts. It looks so easy to win the first trick and play a heart. However, East can take that trick and return his second spade. This establishes his

partner’s suit, while West still has the heart king as an entry. South loses three spades and two hearts. A better line for declarer is to cross to dummy with a diamond at trick two, then to play a heart. But if East is knowledgeable, he will take the trick and lead back his remaining spade. (Remember, if you have only one card left in partner’s suit and it is one lead from being established, do your utmost to win the next defensive trick, trying to save your partner’s entry for use once his suit is ready to run.) So, what is the solution? South must duck the first trick. Yes, East will lead the spade six, but declarer still gets two spade tricks, and when East is in with his heart ace, he will not have a spade left. (If East had a third spade, South would lose only two spades and two hearts.) © 2013 UFS
