COMPARING CITIES

Morrison sewer bills on the rise Sterling has lower rates than others BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 525

MORRISON – Morrison residents might suffer from sticker shock next month when they open their sewer and water bills. Residents who use 4,000 gallons in a month will see a 40 percent increase in the sewer portion of their bills. The city plans to use the extra money to pay for a new wastewater treatment plant. That increase is just the start. The city expects big increases

Members Harvey Zuidethan other towns.” ma and Leo Sullivan were The council unanimously absent. approved the new rates this The plant and pump sta-

tions are expected to cost $23 million. The city needed to increase its plant capacity and upgrade to comply with state and federal regulations. Officials decided that it was better to build a new plant rather than renovate the existing one. The plant will be on a former farm in south Morrison, near the Morrison Institute of Technology. In Rock Falls, the city completed its wastewater treatment plant 2 years ago, complying with a court order. Residents are charged $25.50 a month to pay down the debt for the plant, pump station and lift stations, among other charges on their bills.

“Barring losing a chunk of the population, that $25.50 should stay put for the foreseeable future,” City Administrator Robbin Blackert said. For the next 20 years, the city will have payments of $1 million a year for the plant, Blackert said. The city, she said, got a relatively good deal on the $27 million plant, most of which was paid for with interest-free loans. Smaller towns such as Morrison have a bigger burden because they have to spread out the costs of new plants among far fewer customers, Blackert said. SEWER CONTINUED ON A4

Morse wants to withdraw guilty plea Drunken driver blamed in death of pedestrian BY CHRISTI WARREN cwarren@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 521

MORRISON – A Rock Falls man wants to withdraw his plea of guilty to aggravated DUI in the death of a pedestrian. Chad E. Morse, 42, was sentenced on Sept. 11 to 14 years in prison, the maximum sentence. He had pleaded guilty in July to aggravated DUI for the November 2011 death of 33-year-old Brad E. Nitsch,

also of Rock Falls. Two filings made last week by Morse’s new attorney, Maureen Williams of PeoChad E. ria, seek to Morse change that. In a motion to reconsider the sentence, Williams contends the “sentence imposed was excessive and did not reasonably consider all mitigating circumstances” and that “the defendant was denied effective assistance

of counsel.” Additionally, Williams filed a motion to withdraw the plea of guilty and vacate the judgment, asserting that the defendant “did not enter the guilty plea voluntarily and knowingly” and that he “was denied effective assistance of counsel.” Asked whether she had evidence to support the claims in the motion, Williams said it was just guesswork until she thoroughly reviews the case. “I have to put those in there to cover my bases until I get the transcripts,” she said. “You have to kind of

just guess. “In order to withdraw the guilty plea, you have to claim that it was not knowingly made or voluntarily made.” Whiteside County State’s Attorney Trish Joyce said her office was considering a motion to dismiss the defense motions, based on the lack of specifics. “There are no facts provided, no affidavit attached to the motions – there’s nothing indicating what these allegations are based on,” Joyce said.

OPINION .............. A6 PLAN!T ................. A7 SPORTS ...............B1

WASHINGTON (AP) – Up against a deadline, Congress passed and sent a waiting President Barack Obama legislation late Wednesday night to avoid a threatened national default and end the 16-day partial government shutdown, the culmination of an epic politiPresident cal drama that Barack Obama placed the U.S. economy at risk. The Senate voted first, a bipartisan 81-18 at midevening. That cleared the way for a final 285144 vote in the Republicancontrolled House about 2 hours later on the legislation, which hewed strictly to the terms Obama laid down when the twin crises erupted more than 3 weeks ago. The legislation would permit the Treasury to borrow normally through Feb. 7 or perhaps a month longer, and fund the government through Jan. 15. More than two million federal workers would be paid – those who had remained on the job and those who had been furloughed. At the White House, Obama hailed the Senate’s vote. The White House embraced the bill, worked out by the Senate’s two party leaders, saying in a statement it would “protect the full faith and credit of the United States and end the government shutdown.” Republicans had other concerns. “We fought the good fight. We just didn’t win,” conceded House Speaker John Boehner as lawmakers lined up to vote on a bill that includes nothing to eradicate or scale back Obama’s signature health care overhaul.

STERLING – Alert citizens quickly spotted a fire at a local storage facility Wednesday evening, helping keep damage to contents to a minimum, local fire officials said. Bystanders saw flames coming from a back unit of Lincolnway Mini-Storage and called 911 at 7:33 p.m., said Rock Falls Deputy Chief Bill Milby. Fire crews arrived on scene, 4505 E. Lincolnway, and put out the fire at its source within 15 minutes, Milby said, with ancillary fire and smoke extinguished within 45 minutes.

Nearly 20 minutes after the fire had been put out, the storage unit’s charred contents were spread out on the ground. They consisted mostly of furniture and boxes. The fire spread to the particle board walls of the units on either side, but damage to the contents of those units appeared to be minimal. There was smoke and water damage to the other units, Milby said. The Illinois State Fire Marshal will investigate the fire. In addition to the Twin City Joint Fire Command, made up of the Sterling and Rock Falls Fire Departments, the Sterling Police Department and the Whiteside County Sheriff’s Department responded.

Only a temporary truce, the measure set a timeframe of early next winter for the next likely clash between Obama and the Republicans over spending and borrowing. But for now, the government was lurching back to life. In one example, officials met to discuss plans for gearing back up at the Department

of Housing and Urban Development, where 307 employees remained at work during the partial shutdown and more than 8,000 were furloughed. After weeks of gridlock, the measure had support from the White House, most if not all Democrats in Congress, and many Republicans fearful of the economic impact of a default.

Decision now in hands of school board BY DEREK BARICHELLO DBARICHELLO SAUKVALLEYCOM    EXT

DIXON – A proposal was made Wednesday to close Lincoln Elementary School, but no action was taken as more discussion is expected in the next 2 weeks. Secondand thirdg r a d e Michael students Juenger attending Lincoln would move to Jefferson Elementary School, while fourth- and fifth-grade students at Jefferson would be housed at Reagan Middle School, according to Dixon Superintendent Michael Juenger’s proposal presented at Wednesday’s regular meeting at Jefferson. Prekindergarten and early childhood programs at Reagan would transfer to Washington Elementary School, which still would house kindergarten and first grades under the plan. The high school will not be affected. Closing the elementary school and recon-

figuring the grade levels is expected to save a minimum of $246,000 annually in the education fund and $70,000 annually in the operations and maintenance fund. The proposal comes in response to a projected $1.47 million deficit in the education fund for the 2013-14 school year, leaving a fund balance of $1.44 million. The education fund is the largest and most critical in a school district, funding everything from teachers’ salaries to educational programs. The administration is recommending the proposal, but the school board must vote on it to put it into action. A public meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Oct. 30 at the Reagan cafeteria to discuss the plan and a staff-only meeting will take place Oct. 23. If the district does not reduce its expenses for the 2014-2015 school year, the balance in its education fund would be depleted and it would be forced to set up a budget-reduction plan with the state, said district business manager David Blackburn. The education fund went from a fund balance of $4.3 million in 2012 to the projected

A decline in revenues from general state aid and money coming in from property taxes is to blame, he said. The district has seen a $2.4 million drop in general state aid funding since 2009, and projects a loss of $135,000 from local property taxes. With that said, closing Lincoln is not expected to balance next year’s budget. “This is not the only portion of our budget we’re going to have to look at,â€? Juenger said. Enrollment projections extended to 201718 show no significant change in the number of students attending Dixon schools, making the move possible, Juenger said in his presentation. The district has about 140 fewer students than it did in 2008, he said. “Our analysis of the

dle school students. The fourth- and fifthgrade portion of the school would have its own gym, office and principal. “The idea is to keep them self-contained,� Juenger said. “It will be like a school within a school.� Reagan was designed to hold 1,300 to 1,400 students, and with the proposed move would house about 1,000 to 1,100 students, said Kevin Schultz, district building and grounds supervisor. Washington is the largest elementary school, so it will be able to handle the influx of pre-K students, Schultz said. Board members and members of the public expressed concerns about the logistics of moving more students to Reagan and handling possible future growth if the economy were to take a positive turn. Questions about logistics should be secondary to Wednesday’s conversation, Board President Pam Tourtillott told fellow board members. “The topic tonight is moving forward,� she said. “We’re deficit spending and we have to determine if this is the direction we’re going to go. And then what?�

schools show that the transition could be made to four schools and still provide room for future growth,� Juenger said. “This is one option that can be accomplished without having a major impact on student learning, class sizes or programs.� Because of resignations and a retirement, the majority of staff reductions resulting from a closure would be achieved through attrition, Juenger said. One full-time certified teacher would also be cut in the plan. Lincoln is the oldest of the three grade schools by 15 years at 76 years old. At 5 acres, Lincoln also is the smallest property of all the district’s schools. It has the largest amount of asbestos floor tiles, and its cafeteria and kitchen are not completely compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, said Juenger, listing reasons for why Lincoln was chosen for closure. Fourth- and fifthgrade students moving to Reagan would attend the older part of the building, formerly Madison School, Juenger said. They would not go to lunch or have physical education classes with mid-

Guilty plea part Smaller towns face of plea agreement bigger cost burden MORSE

CONTINUED FROM A1

Morse pleaded guilty July 19 to aggravated DUI as part of a plea agreement that dismissed six other counts against him: three for reckless homicide, two misdemeanor DUIs, and an additional charge of aggravated DUI.

Police say Morse was driving 51 to 63 mph in a 30-mph zone about 11:30 p.m. that November night when his car went off the road and hit Nitsch, who was standing in the 700 block of Avenue D in Rock Falls. No date has been set for the judge to hear arguments on the motions.

“Over the next decade, it’s going to be a huge burden on some of these smaller towns’ residents at no fault of their city governments,� she said. “It’s because of aging infrastructure and tougher requirements by the EPA.� Ed Cox, Rock Falls’ sewer superintendent,

agreed. “It will happen all over the United States,� he said. “Everyone will have to build a new plant eventually.� Dixon built its sewer plant a dozen years ago for $15 million. Dan Mahan, Dixon’s wastewater superintendent, said it was less expensive then to build a sewer plant because of the relatively low cost of materials.

TAMPICO

Current Village Hall to go up for sale Offices could move in the next 6 weeks BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com    EXT

TAMPICO – In a few weeks, a “for sale� sign could be planted in front of Tampico Village Hall. The village decided this week to list its current Village Hall, 104 W. Market St., for sale or lease rather

than to retain ownership and try to redevelop it, Mayor Kristine Hill said. The current Village Hall could be appraised as soon as this week, Hill said during Tuesday’s Village Council meeting, and the council will review the appraised value during its Nov. 5 meeting before listing the property. Listing the property for sale or for lease could

bring a quicker deal, the mayor added. The village is moving its administrative offices and police station to the former Tampico Elementary School building, 202 W. Second St. That move could happen in the next 6 weeks, Hill said. “We’re hoping before the snow flies,� she said. “There are some maintenance, painting and car-

peting that’s going to be scheduled.� The village took control of the school building Oct. 4 from the ProphetstownLyndon-Tampico school district, which built a new elementary school. It was an intergovernmental transfer, so Tampico didn’t pay for the building, but gave the school district $5,000 for some appliances and equipment it wasn’t keeping.

STERLING – Whiteside County is looking for help from residents in putting together its first comprehensive plan. MSA Professional Services, the consulting firm hired by the county to orchestrate the plan, held its second public meeting Wednesday night, at the Ryberg Auditorium at CGH Medical Center. The first meeting was held Oct. 10 at the Whiteside County Law Enforcement Center in Morrison. Jason Valerius, project planner with MSA Professional Services, said they are in their “sponging up� stage, looking for feedback and input from residents. The plan would set future guidelines for the county in regard to land use, economic development, transportation and housing, among other areas. Surrounding counties have established comprehensive plans, Valerius said. Whiteside County will also update its zoning code at the same time. The work is being paid for by a $250,000 Illinois Disaster Recovery Grant, said Steve Haring, a client service manager with

Valerius and Haring discussed county issues and areas of growth with a handful of residents who showed up for the public meeting. The project is still in the information-gathering phase, Valerius said, and they mailed 6,000 surveys to county residents and also posted the survey at www.WhitesidePlan.com in hopes of getting feedback. Because the grant paying for the project is coming from funds the state received after the 2008 flooding that resulted from Hurricane Ike, disaster mitigation will be a big part of the comprehensive plan, Valerius said. There will be public workshops in January, after a draft of the comprehensive plan has been written. The specific topics of the workshops will depend on public feedback from the surveys, Valerius said. Public review meetings are set for April, before the plan could be presented to the Planning and Zoning Committee. It could potentially be adopted by the Whiteside County Board in June.

Display policy a wise move W

hen stores begin promoting Christmas toy sales, the holidays canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be that far behind. Neither can the annual placement of a traditional Nativity scene on the northwest corner of the Lee County Courthouse lawn. A local church puts up the display every year. It is in a perfect spot for motorists on Dixonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Galena Avenue and Second Street to see and enjoy. Because the corner overlooks the convergence of two state highways, state Routes 2 and 26, plenty of out-of-town drivers see the display, too. Questions were raised last year about the propriety of the county allowing its lawn to be

What we think Lee County is considering a policy that sets forth guidelines to govern displays on the courthouse grounds. Allowing a longstanding Nativity scene to continue, as well as opening the door to other displays in an unbiased manner, is a wise approach. used for a religious display. A group based in Madison, Wis., the Freedom From Religion Foundation, asked to be allowed to put up a winter solstice display on the lawn. It turned out that the county had no clear-cut policy to govern such displays. That oversight, apparently, is about to be remedied. The Lee County Board will consider new guide-

lines for courthouse lawn displays when it meets on Nov. 19. According to John Nicholson, chairman of the Properties Committee, groups that want to place displays would have to apply for a permit. He said the county pledges not to discriminate on the basis of religious or political content. Parameters to be set include size and position, so the displays donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t create a nuisance

to maintenance and landscaping operations, or donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t damage the lawn. Fees, length of time the permit is valid, and how long in advance an application must be submitted will also be established. Lee County is correct to set forth guidelines for allowing displays, rather than take the opposite approach of banning all displays from its property. Nicholson and likeminded board members are to be commended for their enlightened approach. Three Wise Men visited the original Nativity scene 2,000 years ago. The actions of wise men, and women, will allow the local commemoration of that scene to continue.

THE READERâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S VOICE

Americans need to come back to reality JORDAN BOWMAN Dixon

What happened to this country? What is with this sore-loser syndrome and opposition-to-anything-new mentality that has taken effect in this country? In 2000, we had a president who, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just say, did not win under the most ideal circumstances, yet the nation rallied around him after it

became clear he would be the next president. When we were attacked on Sept. 11, the nation rallied around him. Now in 2013, we have a president who has legitimately won two landslide elections, yet a small fringe extremist section of a party is determined to go to new lows to do anything to oppose this president. Republicans accused the Democrats of being unwilling to negotiate on Obamacare; this independent voter believes that the Democrats shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to negoti-

ate on Obamacare. Obamacare has gone through all the legal challenges our democracy has to offer. It was debated in Congress; it was upheld by a conservative majority Supreme Court; and finally, the American people spoke loudly and clearly in 2012. The Republicans believe that a majority of people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want Obamacare. Then how come President Obama was re-elected with landslide numbers? How come the Democrats kept control of the Senate? How come Republi-

cans actually lost seats in the House of Representatives? Sen. George McGovern once called on Americans to come home to the idea that we still have a dream. Today it is time to call Americans back to reality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Neither party should be defined by pandering to the outer reaches of American politics and the agents of intolerance, whether they be Louis Farrakhan or Al Sharpton on the left, or Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell on the right.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Sen.

SPRINGFIELD â&#x20AC;&#x201C; When it comes to state legislative races, most of us donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have much of a choice in the voting booth. In fact, during the last general election, 42 percent of Illinois lawmakers didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have an opponent at all. And an additional 53 percent faced only nominal opposition, winning their races by a margin greater than 5 percentage points. That leaves few competitive legislative races. In 2012, only 10 of 194 legislative races â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a mere 5 percent â&#x20AC;&#x201C; were actually close. So in most Statehouse elections, the winner was a foregone conclusion long before Election Day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think a lot of people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t run because they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think they can win,â&#x20AC;? said Neil Anderson, of Rock Island, who is seeking the Republican nomination for state Senate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The system we have now favors one party. The public deserves to have a choice in candidates.â&#x20AC;? Anderson, who expects to run against incumbent state Sen. Mike Jacobs, D-East Moline, in the 2014 general election, said he has been told his race may well be the most competitive state Senate race in Illinois. In fact, it may be the only competitive Senate race. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not good. When politicians fear the voters, we have democracy. When voters fear the government, we have something far more sinister. Today, we have an unprecedented level of arrogance in the Illinois General Assembly. Instead of having a Legislature beholden to the voters, we have a membership that kowtows to legislative leaders, union bosses, and other special interests. HOW DID WE GET in this predicament? The professional political class has found a way to keep most lawmakers from being held accountable. Instead of voters picking legislators, legislators are picking their voters. It all begins with how the boundaries of Illinois legislative districts are drawn. Using sophisticated computer programs loaded full of voter history, census data, demographic trends, and a whole host of other information, lawmakers draw up legislative districts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In Illinois, the public really isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a consideration in the redistricting process,â&#x20AC;? said Mike Lawrence, former director of the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute at South-

â&#x20AC;&#x153;An uncoerced, uncoercible press, though at times irritating, is vital to the perpetuation of the freedom and democracy we so often take for granted.â&#x20AC;? Judith Miller, investigative reporter, 2005

ern Illinois University. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The two considerations that do go into legislative redistricting, right now, are consolidation of political power and, to a lesser extent, protection of incumbents. Neither serves the public particularly well. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I support a change.â&#x20AC;? Instead of drawing districts with a good mix of Republicans, Democrats and inde pendents, state politicians deliberately draw them to favor one party â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the one in Mike control. Lawrence Democrats Former control the director of Paul Simon House, the Public Policy Senate and Institute favors governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s redistricting office. reform. The maps they have drawn disproportionately favor their political party here in the Prairie State. REPUBLICANS ARENâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;T any angels either. In the states where the GOP has control, Republicans often do the same thing. It seems whichever party is in control, the professional politicians want to curtail the ability of voters to be heard. A coalition called Yes for Independent Maps is pushing to have voters consider a constitutional amendment next year that would take the power to draw legislative maps away from legislators. Instead, an independent commission would draw the boundaries of legislative districts. The commission members would be drawn from a pool of experts and selected in a manner similar to how jury members are picked. Instead of having the Land of Lincoln drawn into a patchwork of oddlooking districts designed to boost the electoral prospects of one particular political party, the commissioners would draw compact districts and divorce themselves from partisan considerations. It would seem a step in the right direction. Whether it is on an athletic field, in the business world, or at the ballot box, competition makes for a better society. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time that more lawmakers learn to compete in the marketplace of ideas. The only sure winners in such a scenario are the voters.

MOVIE REVIEW | ‘FIFTH ESTATE’

Film dazzles but fails to connects the dots New thriller never quite makes up mind on Assange

‘The Fifth Estate’

BY ROGER MOORE MCT News Service

A

s the world doesn’t seem to have quite made up its mind about Julian Assange, it seems fitting that the new film about him and the rise of WikiLeaks has an ambivalence about it as well. “The Fifth Estate” takes us inside hackers’ milieu, the personalities and news stories that blew up thanks to WikiLeaks. It visits the very real consequences of Assange’s actions. But it never gets inside the man, what drives him, what justifies the arrogant self-righteousness that he built his worldview upon. Director Bill Condon (“Kinsey” / “Dreamgirls”) dazzles us with the whirl of Assange’s crusade, following him from Africa to Europe, zipping from one trouble spot, where the release of secret documents might make a difference, to another. In a breathless 2 hours, the film lets us see the man through the eyes of a new recruit and close associate. Young Euro-hacker Daniel Berg (Daniel Bruhl of “Rush”) is in awe of this international man of mystery, charismatic in his shock of white hair, his steely determination to set up

AP

This image released by Dreamworks Pictures shows Benedict Cumberbatch as WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in a scene from “The Fifth Estate.” a web site run by legions of whistle blowers, just like himself, and quoting Oscar Wilde as he does: “Give a man a mask and he will tell you the truth.” Benedict Cumberbatch plays Assange as a somewhat justified paranoid, a frequent flier who jets hither and yon, a ghost who is that moving target that no assassin or government can (he believes) hit. He is a man above the mayhem he creates, rarely second-guessing what he’s doing as he persuades contacts that they are just one of many thousands, that his anonymous-tip website is bullet-proof in its security.

Which was probably the attitude of the various banks and governments whose security his whistle blowers breached. Assange sees conspiracies everywhere and has a sneering contempt for mainstream news organizations (the fourth estate) he figures WikiLeaks displaces. Only nobody is noticing WikiLeaks at the time Berg is recruited. That’s before the Bradley Manning cache of military and U.S. State Department communications come to them. That’s before the press conferences, the collaboration with the hated news-

paper and magazine journalists, who sort through the raw data that Assange cavalierly and naively believed would be damning by itself, with the professional reporters providing context and some semblance of objectivity and responsibility. And that’s before people start dying and Berg starts wondering who this wildly secretive weirdo with an obsession for control, privacy, and fame really is and how big the infrastructure of the suddenly famous WikiLeaks is, questioning the very notion of a “movement” that isn’t a movement at all.

3 stars (Grade: B-minus) Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Daniel Bruhl, David Thewlis, Carice Van Houten Directed by Bill Condon, written by Josh Singer, based on the books “WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange’s War on Secrecy” and “Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange at the World’s Most Dangerous Website.” A Dreamworks release. Running time: 2:08 MPAA rating: R for language and some violence Bruhl brings a youthful enthusiasm and naivete to Berg, an insider in the hacker world lured by the charisma and convinced of the rightness of their cause, but young enough to change his mind as he receives new information. Laura Linney is terrific as a State Department employee trying to do her work, frantically pulling in secret sources before they’re exposed and murdered in countries that aren’t as tolerant of whistle blowers as the West. And the aloof, guarded Cumberbatch plays Assange as a mixture of brilliance, hucksterism, ego, and naivete. He carries the baggage of an

actor who plays “smart,” with a menacing edge. His character fumes at the “corporate overlords,” corrupt bankers, and African dictators, but childishly lumps everyone who wants to keep secrets into the same contemptible pile. He inspires: “Courage is contagious.” “You can spend your life in cushy cubicles, or you can march.” But with every revelation, from his troubled childhood to his skirtchasing to the hair color and the stories about how it turned white, the hustler shows through and the mystery deepens. For all the technical sparkle, Condon never quite connects all the dots about Assange and how this “revolution” that he claims he is leading is part of the zeitgeist, the global strain of anarchy that resulted in uprisings in the Middle East, the Occupy Movement, marches in Europe and the tea party in the United States. That label, “anarchist,” might be the most loaded when considering the sagas of Manning, Edward Snowden, Assange and even the so-called “Suicide Caucus” in Congress. But it’s also the most damning. People who want to “blow it all up” rarely trouble themselves with what comes after the explosion.

I think your suggestion of a support group is helpful, but having lost a pet I had for 16 years, I have experienced the deep pain this man will feel. Adding a second pet to his home while his pet is still alive often energizes an older pet. When the time comes, it will help the human to have another loving pet to help with the grieving. As I learned, only time was able to take the deep hurt to a place where I could think of him without tears. Keeping the ashes of a pet can be comforting, whether you choose to bury them later or tuck them away in your home. Most important is having a plan for when that moment comes so you automatically know what needs to be done. It really helped to have

Dummy delay may smarten trick aim

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

Joan Konner, who inter alia has more than a dozen Emmys from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, said, “Procrastination gives you something to look forward to.” Procrastination when the dummy comes down is a good idea because it is beneficial to look forward to the 13 tricks. This deal benefits from clear thinking at the beginning. South is in three no-trump. West leads his fourth-highest spade and East puts up the king (denying the queen). What should declarer do? South’s auction – a takeout double followed by a minimum no-trump bid – showed a good 18 to 20 points. North bid three no-trump because

he counted an extra point for his five-card suit and expected his partner to be able to place the missing high cards based on the bidding. South starts with only four

top tricks: one spade, two hearts and one club. He can get two diamond and four club winners, but he will presumably have to lose the lead twice because East needs the club king for his opening bid. Declarer must let East win the first trick. This sacrifices one spade trick, but gains nine in the long run. South takes the third spade, plays a club to dummy’s ace (the king might drop singleton), and concedes a club. Here, East has no riposte. If declarer takes trick one, then when East gets in with, say, the club king, he returns the spade six (higher of two remaining cards) and West plays his three to keep communication with his partner. Then the contract fails, the defenders taking three spades, one diamond and one club. © 2013 UFS

ILLINOIS

State job crafted after Madiganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s referral Report: Metra employee who raised campaign money now a supervisor SPRINGFIELD (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; During hearings last summer into a scandal at Chicagoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Metra transit agency, a former executive claimed he was fired after resisting a recommendation by Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan to hike the pay of a Metra employee who had raised campaign money for the powerful lawmaker. Now, after being recommended by Madigan again, that employee holds a state supervisorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job that was crafted only after he interviewed for it, resembles the duties of his boss, and currently has no one to supervise, according to documents

obtained by The Associated Press. The records show the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top civil service regulator noted the duplication of duties in initially opposing an exemption for the job from rules seeking to keep politics out of hiring decisions. When the exemption was approved, Gov. Pat Quinnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s administration was able to hire Patrick Ward without considering anyone else for the $70,000 job, which ultimately was approved by the Democratâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief of staff. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not uncommon for elected officials to put in a good word for someone they believe deserves an

Illinois government job. But Wardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hiring raises questions about the continuing role of â&#x20AC;&#x153;cloutâ&#x20AC;? in state government hiring decisions. Quinn and other state leaders have boasted about cleaning up the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s practices following controversies that landed his two predecessors, Rod Blagojevich and George Ryan, in prison. CMS officials deny that Ward received special consideration. They noted the labor relations officer worked 25 years in the city of Chicagoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personnel department and has a masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree. Madigan spokesman Steve Brown confirmed

DAVENPORT, IOWA

IN BRIEF

Testimony closes after 12 days in Walker trial

Judge sends TV pitchman to jail

MCT News Service

DAVENPORT, Iowa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; After more than 12 days of trial, both sides have rested in the city of Clintonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legal malpractice suit against the attorney and his law firm who represented it in a 2009 Medicare fraud case. On Wednesday morning, both sides finished questioning the final defense witness, Des Moines attorney and president of the Iowa State Bar Association Guy Cook. Cook testified Tuesday that Walker followed the standard of care and was not negligent in his representation of the city against a

federal False Claims Act case brought by former Clinton firefighter Timothy Schultheis. Schultheis alleged the city knowingly submitted false ambulance claims to Medicare and Medicaid in order to receive higher reimbursement rates. That case was settled for $4.5 million in 2010, which the city now believes was a result of Walkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s failure to properly analyze the case. Following the conclusion of Cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s testimony, the defense rested and the city did not call any rebuttal witnesses. The jury was dismissed until 1:30 p.m.

Brown said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beyond that, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to talk to Pat Ward.â&#x20AC;? Ward, contacted at his Chicago office, referred all questions to the CMS media office. Ward first came to public attention in July, when lawmakers were scrutinizing a decision by the Chicago-area Metra commuter rail line board to award a $718,000 severance agreement to former CEO Alex Clifford. Critics called the award a waste of taxpayer funds.

Playoff dreams for Steamers Fulton needs to win to get in postseason

Comets dug deep to rally past Panthers

Playoffs? You want to talk about playoffs? In Fulton, yes indeed they do. The Steamers havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been invited to the postseason party since 2007, but with a pair of wins the next 2 weeks, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be in that position. Task No. 1 is to handle Amboy on Friday night in Fulton. Paul Five wins is Velasco the magic numFulton senior ber for qualifying for the playoffs, and Fulton (3-4, 1-3 Three Rivers North) can still get there. If it does, Three Rivers crossover games against Kewanee (6-1) and Orion (4-3) the first 2 weeks of the season will strengthen its cause. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we go with every year is we want to stay in it as long as we can,â&#x20AC;? Fulton coach Patrick Lower said. PLAYOFFS CONTINUED ON B3

Down 30-7, most teams would panic. Newman is not most teams. On the road last Friday, playing high-powered ErieProphetstown, the Comets picked themselves up, dusted themselves off, and went about their business. And business was good, as Newman earned a 54-38 win over the Panthers and command of the Three Rivers North. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It sums up our team. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about playing the whole game,â&#x20AC;? Comets senior starting tight end and backup linebacker Bryce Ivey said.

Out with a bang?

Last meeting sidestory to Dukes, Warriors game BY CHRISTOPHER HEIMERMAN cheimerman@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, Ext. 552

It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t raining when practice began at Roscoe Eades Stadium, but it felt like the Sterling football team was in a ferocious storm. The Golden Warriors are facing the cold reality that, without winning their last two games, they would miss the playoffs for the first time in a dozen years. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re prepping for a Dixon team whose sole goal right now

is to leave the Northern Illinois Big 12 West with one prize: a win over its bitter rival to the west. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be a jerk and feel good about eliminating their playoff chances,â&#x20AC;? Dixon quarterback JD Gieson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But as a player who attends Dixon High School, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d feel very good and very satisfied being a member of the team that stopped them from going to the playoffs.â&#x20AC;?

The Amboy volleyball team may or may not reach great heights in the 2013 season. It already knows what the deepest depths feel like, in the form of an 0-33 record in 2012. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was kind of embarrassing, actually,â&#x20AC;? senior middle hitter Hannah McCoy said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;coming off the court every single game knowing that we just lost and I tried my hardest.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just kind of looked at it as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m preparing for next year,â&#x20AC;? added senior outside Alex T.

The Amboy volleyball team has gone from 0 wins in 2012 to 10 already this â&#x20AC;&#x153;I tried my hardest and gave it my all year.

Power play in L.A. Dodgers homer 4 times, send series back to St. Louis

On the calendar Local events Today

BY BETH HARRIS !03PORTS7RITER

LOS ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201C; It took the Dodgers five games to hit a home run in the NL championship series. Once Adrian Gonzalez powered up for the first one, their dormant offense broke loose. Gonzalez homered twice, and Zack Greinke came through with the clutch performance Los Angeles needed in a 6-4 victory over the Cardinals on Wednesday that trimmed St. Louisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lead to 3-2 in the best-of-seven playoff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Guys werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ready to lose today,â&#x20AC;? said Carl Crawford, who also went deep to help the Dodgers save their season. Los Angeles held on in the ninth, when St. Louis scored twice off closer Kenley Jansen before he struck out pinch-hitter Adron Chambers with two on to end it. The series shifts back to St. Louis for Game 6 on Friday night, with ace Clayton Kershaw scheduled to start for Los Angeles against rookie Michael Wacha. When those two squared off in Game 2, the Cardinals won 1-0 on an unearned run. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve kind of become Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team because everyone wants to see a seventh game,â&#x20AC;? Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Probably even the fans in St. Louis would like to see a seventh game, so I figure that everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for us to win on Friday night.â&#x20AC;? The Cardinals also led last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NLCS 3-1 before losing three straight games to the eventual World Series champion San Francisco Giants. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking to do the same thing,â&#x20AC;? said Gonzalez, who went 3-for-4 with two solo homers and three runs scored. Greinke got into a bases-loaded jam with none out in the first, but escaped with no damage. From there, he pitched seven strong innings and even delivered an RBI single. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was big. I was real nervous out there with that situation,â&#x20AC;? Greinke said. A.J. Ellis also homered as the Dodgers rediscovered their power stroke just in time to extend the series. They hit .274 in three games

The Dodgersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mark Ellis (14) tries to break up a double play, as he gets tangled with the Cardinalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Pete Kozma (38) and Matt Carpenter (13) during the third inning of Game 5 of the NLCS on Wednesday in Los Angeles. Hanley Ramirez was out at first, but the Dodgers staved off elimination with a 6-4 victory.

Mattingly said. The Dodgers regrouped after Greinke squandered an early 2-0 lead just as he did in Game 1, which Los Angeles lost 3-2 in 13 innings on the road. After wriggling out of big trouble in the first when Yadier Molina bounced into a double play, Greinke allowed two runs and six hits. He struck out four and walked one, and induced another inning-ending double play from Molina after the Cardinals scored twice in the third inning on Carlos Beltranâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s RBI triple and Matt

Hollidayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s run-scoring double. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He made his pitches, we made the plays, got out of it,â&#x20AC;? Gonzalez said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were able to get run support for him.

Beltran said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But guys like that, the best guys in the game, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re able to regroup and find a way to help their team win.â&#x20AC;? Jansen gave up RBI singles to Matt Adams and Pete Kozma in the ninth before getting out of the jam. Cardinals starter Joe Kelly gave up four runs and seven hits in five innings. He struck out three and walked none. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I made a few bad pitches on heaters and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t locate that well, and they turned into home runs,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With guys on base, I was going after them and attacking them with the fastball, but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re good hitters and they put good swings on them and hit them out of the park.â&#x20AC;?

Tigers change stripes to win Revamped lineup keys Detroitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offensive outburst BY NOAH TRISTER !03PORTS7RITER

DETROIT â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A revitalized Austin Jackson delivered in manager Jim Leylandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s revamped lineup, as the Detroit Tigers built a big lead and held on this time, beating the Boston Red Sox 7-3 Wednesday night to even the AL championship series 2-2. Torii Hunter had a two-run double, and Miguel Cabrera drove in two runs after Leyland dropped the slumping Jackson to eighth in the order and moved almost everyone else up a place following the Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 1-0 loss in Game 3. Jackson drew a basesloaded walk off Jake Peavy for the first run of Detroitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s five-run second inning. Doug Fister allowed a run in six innings, and after blowing a 5-0 lead in Game 2, Detroit kept the Red Sox at bay Wednesday. Jacoby Ellsbury had four hits for the Red Sox, finishing a homer shy of the cycle. The Tigers lost Games 2 and 3, wasting gems by Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander. Jackson was 3 for 33 with 18 strike-

The Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jose Iglesias is safe at first as the Red Soxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mike Napoli misses the ball in the eighth inning during Game 4 of the American League championship series Wednesday in Detroit. The Tigers won 7-3. outs in the postseason before Wednesday, and although Leyland left him in the lineup, he changed the batting order. Jackson hit eighth, and with others moving up a spot, it made for an odd-looking order. Hunter hit leadoff for the first time since 1999 and Cabrera was second for only the third time in his career â&#x20AC;&#x201C; first since 2004. Jackson found himself batting in a crucial situation right away, with the bases loaded and one out in the sec-

ond. Peavy walked him on four pitches to force home the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first run. The Red Sox had a chance to halt that rally when Jose Iglesias hit a potential double play grounder to second, but Dustin Pedroia couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t field it cleanly, and Boston had to settle for a forceout at second that brought another run home. Hunter followed with a double down the line in left to make it 4-0, and Cabrera added an RBI single. After walking three

batters in the second inning, Peavy was in trouble again in the fourth. After a leadoff double by Omar Infante, Jackson slapped a single past a diving Pedroia to bring home a run. Cabreraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s single made it 7-0, and the Detroit third baseman â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who has been running even slower than usual over the last month or so because of groin problems â&#x20AC;&#x201C; caught reliever Brandon Workman and the Boston defense napping when he stole second without a throw. In the fifth, Cabrera looked healthy enough when he charged Pedroiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slow grounder, barehanded it and threw to first for the out. Peavy allowed seven runs and five hits in three-plus innings.

They lost in three sets to Prophetstown, but improvement was evident. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t finish,â&#x20AC;? Stenzel said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but to know that we could step out there with another team and compete, that was big. That was our first goal this season â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just to be able to compete with people, and I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done that pretty well.â&#x20AC;? Stenzel has tinkered with the lineup as the season has progressed. For starters, Kennedy Dinges has gone from libero to a hitting position. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s played a heck of a lot better, getting out of that red jersey,â&#x20AC;? Stenzel said. Kaitlyn Liebing, who started as an outside hitter, now concentrates on defense and serving. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just tearing it up in the back row,â&#x20AC;? Stenzel said of Liebing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a lot of balls that go down around her right now.â&#x20AC;? Destinee Oenes is the new libero, after initially struggling to find her niche. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen much court time the first half of the season,â&#x20AC;? Stenzel said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s come out the second half and played well for us. I think changing up our defense and putting people in different spots

The Clippers have 10 wins this season after going winless in 2012. is whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s helping us the second half.â&#x20AC;? The season highlight for the Clippers happened this past weekend at the Dixon Invitational, where they finished third against much larger schools. In pool play, Amboy topped the host Duchesses 20-17, 19-21, 15-13; lost to Sterling 20-8, 20-5; and defeated Dunlap 20-17, 20-15. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we got that first game from Dixon, we were thrilled,â&#x20AC;? said Stenzel, who noted Amboy hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t won so much as a game in three previous appearances at the Dixon Invite. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was a success for us. We stuck with it, and when we beat Dixon, I think that was the biggest match of the season. We knew we could do it then.â&#x20AC;? In the semifinals, Amboy got roughed up by LaSalle-Peru 20-11,

20-7. The Clippers rebounded, however, to take a rematch against Sterling 20-13, 20-15 in the third-place match. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a great feeling, knowing that we worked our hardest and never gave up,â&#x20AC;? Hannah McCoy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The girls played with confidence, and they just kept battling,â&#x20AC;? Stenzel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were so happy to walk out of there with third place. For us, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big deal.â&#x20AC;? The next step for the Clippers will be to exert themselves against Three Rivers North competition. Amboy is just 1-10 against league foes, with that lone win against Morrison. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a real confidence problem when it comes to the conference,â&#x20AC;? Stenzel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our conference is a good conference for vol-

leyball, and right now I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much a skill issue as it is a confidence issue. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going three games half the time, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not pulling it out. I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done a lot of things to build our confidence, but it would be nice to get a few more of those in the book.â&#x20AC;? Then there is the postseason. Instead of merely playing out the string like a year ago, the Clippers view themselves as a playoff threat. They are the third seed in the Somonauk Regional, and open with Ottawa Marquette on Tuesday, Oct. 29. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know we can take regionals,â&#x20AC;? Micaela McCoy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a competition, but we know we can do it and push through it. Hopefully we get one of these banners up in our gym.â&#x20AC;?

Newmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brady Rude breaks a tackle during the Cometsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; come-from-behind win over the ErieProphetstown Panthers last week.

Jecklin earned shot on Cometsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; line ADVERSITY

CONTINUED FROM B1

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can overcome,â&#x20AC;? Ivey said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anyone can blow someone out, but it takes a different type of team to come back from 23 points and win by 16.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It shows that we have a lot of character and a lot of heart,â&#x20AC;? senior backup quarterback and starting linebacker Nate Terveer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We trust each other to do our jobs. Hopefully we can come back from any deficit we have now.â&#x20AC;? One of the key cogs for Newman (6-1, 5-0 Three Rivers North) in recent weeks has been senior Mitch Jecklin, who has been starting at right guard and is in the defensive tackle rotation. Jecklin waited a long time for his turn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve played since fifth grade, and this is really my first time starting these last couple weeks,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels really good. The coaches have always said that our time will come, and we might be called upon at some point. A couple weeks ago, I was called upon.â&#x20AC;? Jecklin did not get frustrated with his role in the

past. He just kept working. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody on this team earns their spot,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get that spot, it just pushes you harder.â&#x20AC;? A state-qualifying wrestler, Ivey has been on the mat since fourth grade. He thinks football and wrestling go hand in hand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I would be as good and physical at blocking if I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wrestle,â&#x20AC;? Ivey said. After falling behind to EP, Newman made it 30-21 by halftime before outscoring the Panthers 33-8 in the second half. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We started playing more Newman defense and more Newman football in the second half,â&#x20AC;? Terveer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We made adjustments at halftime, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been working this week on tightening up our loose ends.â&#x20AC;? The Comets know theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to play better than last week to reach their goals, and while theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not looking ahead, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still one goal in mind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all have, deep in our minds, that one goal, to get to DeKalb and play there [in the state championship] and bring home the hardware,â&#x20AC;? Terveer said.

Yikes. And then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Sterling golf team, fresh off earning a state tournament berth, chirping its fellow fall sportsters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Trevor] Sisson, [Kyle] Sinn, [Zach] Rehmertâ&#x20AC;Ś all them,â&#x20AC;? said Kirchhoff, who takes a publications class with Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s golfers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Making state, though â&#x20AC;Ś they have a little room to talk.â&#x20AC;? Sinn, a senior in his third season playing golf, played football for the 9 years prior. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I still miss football sometimes,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I still like talking football with them. At some points you miss it, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never trade what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing now. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ribbing isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t anything thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not in goodnature. I like to think at some point, it gives them some motivation.â&#x20AC;? While he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speak to any of the noise surrounding his team, Sterling (3-4, 1-2 Northern Illinois Big 12 West) coach Jon Schlemmer was happy to address the sense of urgency his team must practice and play with the next 10 days in order to earn a spot in the second season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our kids donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to worry about the next 6 years, or 10 years or 50 years,â&#x20AC;? the secondyear Sterling coach said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re focused on Friday night, going out and playing to the best of their ability. For the seniors, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the last guaranteed time to be out here. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotta go out and play their best games of the year.â&#x20AC;? Gieson is one of many

Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tre Gallegos wraps up LaSalle-Peruâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mason Donahue during a game earlier this season. Sterling and Dixon are both 1-2 in the NIB-12 West, with their lone conference wins coming over LaSalle-Peru. talented juniors on the Dixon (2-5, 1-2) roster who â&#x20AC;&#x201C; while they lament being playoff ineligible â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are building toward their senior season, which will be spent as members of the Big Northern West. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ever be playing them again,â&#x20AC;? Gieson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even in the playoffs, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re 5A and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re 4A, so we likely wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even see them. We always think about during the offseason: Conference, conference, conference. Even more, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thinking Sterling, Sterling, Sterling.â&#x20AC;? The Warriors won last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tussle 38-0 at A.C. Bowers Field. Running back Draque PenaflorHeier scorched the chilled surface to the tune of 132 yards and two scores on 10 carries. This year, Gieson is

looking forward to putting the ball in his many weaponsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hands on the fast track. Schlemmer is aware of the threat thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s posed by burners like Matt Coffey and Ryan Webb, as well as punishing runners like Quinton Douglas and Cody Mighell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re athletic â&#x20AC;Ś really, really athletic,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t contain them on the outside, in my opinion, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re as athletic as anybody weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to see. They do some nice things, but like us, sometimes they turn the ball over more than theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to.â&#x20AC;? Turnovers have plagued the Warriors the last 2 weeks â&#x20AC;&#x201C; nine of them to be exact. Schlemmer said players like Kirchhoff â&#x20AC;&#x201C; whose primary job to this point

has been at split end on offense â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will be relied upon to defend the edges and try to force Dixon into miscues. Gieson had high praise for Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quarterback, Bryant Lilly. He wonders when his program lost Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s respect. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of a slap in the face to hear people in Sterling say Dixonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not even their rival anymore, that Geneseoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their rival,â&#x20AC;? Gieson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Growing up, it was built into us, this rivalry, that we had to beat Sterling.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know them very well,â&#x20AC;? Kirchhoff said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is our last chance. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our last chance to show Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better. We always tell ourselves that, but now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to prove it.â&#x20AC;?

All phone numbers prefixed by “900” are charged to the CALLER. Charges may be assessed on a “per minute” basis rather than a “per call” basis. Sauk Valley Classified makes every effort to qualify these charges for the reader. If you have a concern about an advertiser, please contact the Better Business Bureau 330 N. Wabash, Chicago, IL 60611. 312-832-0500
