DIXON SCHOOLS

Parents voice concerns Some worry about plan mixing younger kids with older ones BY DEREK BARICHELLO dbarichello@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 526

DIXON – When Danielle Reed learned of the possibility of her fourth-grader attending Reagan Middle School with junior high schoolers, she didn’t like it. “No. No way,” the mother of three said. A proposal was made at Wednesday’s school board meeting to close Lincoln Elementary School, but no action was taken. More discussion is expected in the next 2 weeks. Before board members vote, a public meeting is set for 6:30 p.m. Oct. 30 at Reagan Middle School for people to voice concerns and ask questions. District administrators say something needs to be done to cut spending, before district funds are depleted after next school year. The proposed closure would shuffle around students, transferring the district’s fourth- and fifth-graders at Jefferson Elementary School to the former Madison School portion of Reagan, and second- and third-graders at Lincoln to Jefferson.

Distance growing with part of party?

Philip Marruffo/pmarruffo@saukvalley.com

Students leave Lincoln Elementary School at the end of the school day Thursday afternoon. Many parents on Thursday were still learning of the district’s proposal to close the school, made at the previous night’s board meeting.

Last year, candidates Adam Kinzinger and Don Manzullo each tried to claim the mantle of conservatism in the 16th Congressional District, which includes Lee County. These days, Kinzinger appears to be distancing himself from the most conservative elements of his party. Manzullo, R-Egan, had long represented the GOP-heavy 16th District, while Kinzinger, R-Channahon, was elected to the 11th District in 2010. Redistricting put Kinzinger in the 16th. Kinzinger beat Manzullo in the March 2012 primary and sailed to victory in November. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times this week, Kinzinger blamed House conservatives for the Republican Party’s failure in shutdown negotiations. “It’s been about 30 people that make their money on not hanging with the team. And so it’s on them,” Kinzinger said in the Times story. That didn’t sit well with David Hale of Rockford, who plans to challenge Kinzinger in next March’s GOP primary. DISTANCE CONTINUED ON A4

Proposal a response to deficit PARENTS

Online extra

CONTINUED FROM A1

Bringing the younger students into Reagan was the No. 1 concern among parents picking up their children from Lincoln on Thursday. Lincoln houses the district’s second- and third-graders. Parents, many of them hearing of the plan for the first time, worried about possible bullying and bad influences from having fourth- and fifth-graders attend Reagan with the older students. “I don’t think my fourth-grader is mature enough to be with junior high schoolers,� Reed said. “There’s going to be way too many kids going there. I’d like there to be a little more separation between the older kids and the younger ones.� One parent, in disbelief, said the closure would “never happen,� while others still are sour on the move from neighborhood schools to what are known as attendance centers, where all students in a certain grade go to one school.

Decline in enrollment expected Paula Portner, mother of a Lincoln student, said the district needs to stop moving students around. “I’m not happy,� she said. “I live three blocks away, and my student only comes here for 2 years? Now the people on this side of town won’t have a school, period.� Patty Starr chimed into the conversation: “My fourth-grader has to be up by 7:15 a.m. to catch the bus [to Jefferson]. It’s too early.� Some parents interviewed by Sauk Valley Media questioned if the schools would become overcrowded and whether busing students around town would become too costly. Board member Jim Schielein was concerned Wednesday about the

Moving prekindergarten and early childhood programs from Reagan to Washington Elementary School is expected to make enough room there for fourth- and fifthgraders, Superintendent Michael Juenger said at Wednesday’s meeting. Projections show a 1 to 2 percent decrease in enrollment in the next 3 years, he said. The building is equipped to handle 1,300 to 1,400 students, and the proposed move would bring attendance to 1,000 to 1,100, said Kevin Schultz, district building and grounds supervisor. The school has 738 students currently enrolled. The fourth- and fifthgrade portion of the school would be self-contained in one portion of the building and have its own gym, office, and principal.

and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always looking at that and ways to reduce costs there.â&#x20AC;? Some of the finer details, such as the procedure for dropping off and picking up students, still need to be worked out, Juenger said. Closing the elementary school and reconfiguring grade levels is expected to save a minimum of $316,000 annually. The district is uncertain what it will do with the building. The proposal is 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 in the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest and most critical fund, responsible for teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; salaries and educational programs. If the district does not reduce its expenses for the 2014-15 school year, the balance in its education fund would be depleted, meaning it would be forced to set up a budget-reduction plan with the state. With that said, closing Lincoln will not balance next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget, Juenger said. It is just one area the district is looking to cut expenses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really sad that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coming down to that,â&#x20AC;? said Jessica Mattson, who has two daughters in Washington. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really worry about overcrowding.â&#x20AC;?

DIXON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; State Sen. Tim Bivins, R-Dixon, plans to run for re-election in November 2014. This should come as no surprise to voters in the 45th Senate District, which he serves. The district includes Winnebago, Lee, Whiteside, Ogle, LaSalle, DeKalb, Jo Daviess, Stephenson, and Carroll counties. Bivins has been state senator since March 7, 2008, when he was appointed to the post. He ran unopposed in November 2012. Previously, he had served as Lee County sheriff for 20 years. In his latest term, Bivins worked closely with colleague Kwame Raoul, D-Chicago, on concealedcarry legislation. Bivins sponsored bills passed on gun safety and school safety. One bill, passed unanimously, would create the School Security and Standards Task Force to study current security conditions, make recommendations, and draft mini-

Kinzinger voted for shutdown to end DISTANCE

CONTINUED FROM A1

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Adam Kinzinger is blaming what he calls â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;conservativesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for the government shutdown,â&#x20AC;? Hale said in a news release this week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He is now characterizing others as conservatives and not including himself in that class. ... What did Kinzinger David do in the hale previous 12 months since the previous budget crisis to strategically plan in order to avert the crisis we have just gone through?â&#x20AC;? Haleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s answer: Nothing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And now he is throwing his colleagues under the bus for cheap political gain,â&#x20AC;? Hale said. Kinzinger was among a minority of Republicans voting Wednesday for legislation to end the 2 1/2-week shutdown, allowing the government to borrow money through at least February. It was close to what President Barack Obama wanted in the first place. The bill passed the House largely on Democratic votes. In an interview Thursday, Kinzinger said the

In this Sept. 4 file photo, U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Channahon, displays a photo of Syrian children while questioning Secretary of State John Kerry at a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing in Washington. These days, Kinzinger appears to be distancing himself from the most conservative elements of his party. Times editorialized by saying he was blaming House conservatives. He said nearly all House Republicans are conservatives. Rather, he said he was referring to a small group among members. Kinzingerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spokesman, Zach Hunter, said his boss is a conservative. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Congressman Kinzinger believes that effective governance requires a certain amount of compromise,â&#x20AC;? Hunter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a faction in the House conference that feels differently.â&#x20AC;?

&RIDAY /CTOBER 

Congress had faced a Thursday deadline to raise the debt ceiling. Otherwise, the United States would have defaulted on its debt, officials warned. In a news release, Kinzinger said House Republicans fought to the brink to protect Americans from Obamacare, the original reason behind Republicansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; decision to allow a shutdown. But Kinzinger defended his vote by saying that â&#x20AC;&#x153;surpassing our debt threshold would be incredibly damaging to

our already weak economy ... .â&#x20AC;? Hale, the founder of the Rockford Tea Party, said he would have voted against ending the shutdown, unless the legislation took on the debt problem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The country is $17 trillion in debt. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to say no to this madness and stop the spending,â&#x20AC;? he said in an interview Thursday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to start strategically planning together.â&#x20AC;? In the 17th Congressional District, which includes Whiteside County, Rep. Cheri Bustos, D-East Moline, voted to end the shutdown, as she had pushed for all along. While Kinzinger was largely silent through the shutdown, Bustos sent daily news releases calling for its end, often profiling average people affected by it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will continue to work with anyone who shares my commitment to finding long-term solutions to our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problems that place the needs of our constituents over politics,â&#x20AC;? Bustos said in a statement. Bobby Schilling, R-Colona, who represented the 17th District for a term until Bustos beat him, couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be reached for comment Thursday.

Celebration at area attraction Event Saturday at Heritage Canyon -#4.EWS3ERVICE

FULTON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the season for ghosts and ghouls, and Heritage Canyon is bringing out all the stops to make this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Halloween celebration exciting for area children. From 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, children are invited to dress up in their favorite costumes and take part in the annual Heritage Canyon Beggarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Night trick-or-treat event. The canyon will be fitted with spooky sights and sounds to evoke the Halloween spirit, but according to caretaker Brian Tomman, it will be appropriate for kids of all ages. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will decorate the canyon up but, nothing too scary,â&#x20AC;? Tomman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not geared toward scaring the kids too much. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meant to be fun.â&#x20AC;? Visitors on Saturday will follow an illuminated path through the canyon, stopping at each replica building to receive treats, and a few tricks, from members of the Early American Crafters, dressed for the occasion. Children will receive Halloween-themed bags to collect their treats at the beginning of the night and also will have an opportunity to have their pictures taken professionally by the Rose Bud Mission Team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Something new this year is, the Rose Bud Mission team will be there to offer professional photos for guests before they get to the

first building,â&#x20AC;? Tomman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When they exit, they can pay $5 and get a copy of the photo.â&#x20AC;? Another new feature that people can expect at Beggarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Night on Saturday is a free shuttle service that will transport people from Fulton Corporation to Heritage Canyon. Parking problems happened during last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beggarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Night, resulting in hundreds of dollars worth of parking tickets issued to visitors. According to Tomman, the organizers were not prepared for the success of the event, which is why parking became such an issue for Heritage Canyon. He also said that he and the victims of the parking tickets confronted the city and had the fines expunged. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What happened was, this thing grew so fast, we had over 1,000 kids through last year. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we had a parking problems,â&#x20AC;? Tomman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year we are prepared for it. The tickets that were issued last year caused enough of an uproar that we had them taken care of. Now, we have the shuttle.â&#x20AC;? With the shuttle now in place, Tomman believes the event will generate even more participation than last year, weather permitting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m guessing that there might even be a little more who come this year,â&#x20AC;? Tomman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But, the weatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s showing 55 degrees so I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how that will affect us.â&#x20AC;?

POLITICS | CONGRESS

Kinzinger: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the dirty secret of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going onâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; BY DAVID GIULIANI DGIULIANI SAUKVALLEYCOM    EXT

U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Channahon, who represents Lee County, rejects the litmus tests of some Washington conservative groups. In an interview Thursday, Kinzinger said groups such as the Club for Growth and FreedomWorks are raising money by saying some Republican members of Congress â&#x20AC;&#x153;are not pure enough.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re raising a ton of money,â&#x20AC;? Kinzinger said in a phone interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the dirty secret of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on.â&#x20AC;? The Club of Growth and FreedomWorks have funded candidates in GOP primaries whom they consider more conservative than incumbent Republicans. In some cases, the groups have ousted the incumbents, including former Sen. Dick Lugar, R-Ind. David Hale, the founder of the Rockford Tea Party, plans to run against Kinzinger in the March primary. Kinzinger said he talked with a group of Republicans during the shutdown about ways to reduce the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debt. They brought some Democrats into the discussions, asking them what they would be willing to accept. He said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x153;necessarilyâ&#x20AC;? agree with the

strategy going into the government shutdown, saying the â&#x20AC;&#x153;threat of default was real.â&#x20AC;? He said Democrats and Republicans must have â&#x20AC;&#x153;grown-upâ&#x20AC;? discussions to figure out what they can agree on. In dealing with the debt, would Kinzinger support cutting Social Security and Medicare benefits for those with higher incomes? What about ending the $113,700 tax cap for Social Security and Medicare, above which no income is taxed? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;menu of options,â&#x20AC;? Kinzinger said, but he declined to say whether he would support such measures. He said that if he stated a position in favor, that could â&#x20AC;&#x153;be used to attack me.â&#x20AC;? He said that after he spoke about the possibility of raising the retirement age for younger people during his campaign, he had $1 million spent against him, warning that he would take away peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Social Security benefits. A debt compromise, he said, would require things that both sides donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like. As for cutting defense spending, Kinzinger, a major in the Air National Guard, said the military has taken a â&#x20AC;&#x153;disproportionate hitâ&#x20AC;? from the budget ax. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been cut to the bone,â&#x20AC;? he said.

CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Hundreds of furloughed federal workers returned to jobs in campgrounds, wildlife refuges and federal offices in Illinois on Thursday with the end of the partial government shutdown after Congress passed a temporary spending bill and lifted the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s borrowing limit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard untold numbers of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;welcome backsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; this morning in our office, from attorneys to their legal assistants and other support staff,â&#x20AC;? said Randall Samborn, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office in Chicago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve being welcomed back with cheery greetings and open arms.â&#x20AC;?

Analysts at the federally funded Illinois Department of Employment Security were furloughed during the shutdown, leading the department to say that its scheduled Friday release of the state unemployment rate for September will be indefinitely delayed. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers officials said that furloughed employees were returning to work Thursday, allowing the reopening of boat ramps and campsites on federal lands and the National Great Rivers Museum in Alton.

Proponents of same-sex marriage want vote on bill Decision may come during next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s veto session Proponents of a gay marriage bill said Wednesday they want to see the legislation addressed during the General Assemblyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s veto session that begins next week. However, they would not discuss specifics of how many votes they believe there are for the bill in the Illinois House after a summer-long effort to build support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t comment publicly on roll call,â&#x20AC;? John Kohlhelpp, campaign manager for Illinois Unites for Marriage, told The State JournalRegister editorial board. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We take that from our sponsor [state Rep. Greg Harris, D-Chicago]. He says we are within striking distance.â&#x20AC;? Senate Bill 10 was previously approved by the Illinois Senate, but did not come to a vote on the House floor. On the last day of the spring session, Harris acknowledged that he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the votes needed and said he would not call the bill only to see it fail. INSTEAD, HARRIS said he would continue to work in the lead-up to the veto session, trying to secure enough votes to pass the bill. State Rep. Kelly Cassidy, D-Chicago, a gay member of the General Assembly and a co-sponsor of the bill, said thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what she and other supporters have done. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The lead sponsor and I, as well as others, have spent the summer having the conversations with our colleagues that they asked us to have when

State education officials asked for the opinion of parents, teachers, and students last spring on how well their school and their school leaders were performing. But the Illinois State Board of Education doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trust parents, teachers, and students with the data from that survey. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yet another example of the education bureaucrats in Illinois wanting community help and input, but only on their terms. All school districts in the state were required to provide the surveys, and the state board encouraged districts to launch a publicity effort to make sure the surveys were filled out. That worked â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 140,409 teachers, 195,946 parents and 816,513 students in sixth through 12th grade spoke up about what was right and wrong in their schools. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about 75 percent of teachers statewide and about 70 percent of students. BUT THE STATE board has decided, apparently under pressure from school administrators, that the information on individual schools wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be shared this year. The data has been shared with school administrators and principals, and state officials said the school-specific data would be shared after next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s survey. The public will be able to see the data in a combined form, but the information that

Peter Goddard, chief performance officer for the board, told the Chicago Tribune the board wanted â&#x20AC;&#x153;to have the same level of confidence in the data as we do in other data,â&#x20AC;? so it was decided to â&#x20AC;&#x153;proceed with caution.â&#x20AC;? GODDARDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S response hints at some sort of problem with the data, but there havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been any specifics on the problem, if there is any. A more logical answer for the state boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s footdragging on releasing the data is that school districts and principals might be embarrassed about having key constituents â&#x20AC;&#x201C; students, parents, and teachers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; reveal the strengths and weaknesses in individual districts and schools. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost a parochial stance by the state board: We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trust the folks who teach, learn, and send their children to our schools with the facts. Parents, teachers, and students can handle the truth.

Vote Cross for state treasurer RICH MORTHLAND Cordova

Bold ideas and innovative solutions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; two things not commonly associated with our Chicago-run government in Springfield. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Tom Cross is proposing in his campaign for state treasurer, and I find it refreshing. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve known Tom for a few years, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found him to be someone ahead of the curve. Tom was among the first, if not the first, lawmaker to begin highlighting the disastrous shape of our state pension system. But more than that, Tom not only recognized the problem, he has offered bold solutions to stabilize and protect the pension system of Illinois retirees and workers. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the type of leadership Illinois needs to begin to right the fiscal wrongs of a decade of overspending, over-bor-

Tom Cross will bring a fresh perspective to the treasurerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office, one that builds on his experience as a prosecutor and a fiscally conservative lawmaker. He knows that the path forward begins with balancing our stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget. His approach to addressing this problem is to fight for us by requiring an honestly balanced budget. Tom has the knowledge and background to identify the gimmicks used by the insiders in Springfield. Taxpayers deserve no less.

Privately owned model at museum

A model of the California-Michigan Lumber Companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pino Grande mill in California is on display at The Sawmill Museum in Clinton, Iowa. It is on temporary loan.

LINTON, Iowa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; There is a special visitor at The Sawmill Museum right now â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Twin Mills at Deer Creek Sawmill. This award-winning model shows a 1920s sawmill and lumber yard, courtesy of Bill Michaels. A co-host of Dwyers and Michaels on 97X radio in the Quad Cities, he has put the model on exhibit out of his possession for the first time. The display shows the California-Michigan Lumber Co.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pino Grande mill area in California. Built from a kit, many hours of time were put into it. Visitors will see 18 structures.

All the working parts of a mill make up the exhibit, even logs in the water ready to go up the log haul. And in case of a log jam, the dynamite shack is at hand. Visitors can get into the fun of it all by trying one of the scavenger hunts directed at the model. Looking for particular parts will help to ensure nothing of the intricate display is missed. Another exhibit is visiting the museum this month and will be on display until the end of November. This traveling exhibit from the National Museum of Forest Service gives details of what is mined from national forests. Children and adults will find these and other displays both

to look over, based on an 1888 camp. Looking at the log cabins, it does not take much imagination to summon the feeling of being in the Northwoods. Activities for the family can be found there. They will learn what lumberjacks do in a matching game or by scavenger hunt, learn about the forest while working a floor puzzle, and can even play the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board game. In this, players need to collect what it takes for a tree to be healthy. That means watching out for those nasty storms and droughts. Sturve Mill promises to be entertaining. Here visitors can follow lumber from its original state to a finished project on a

piece of furniture. Another option is to visit the museum on a sawing day. A restored 1920s sawmill churns out lumber from logs. Be warned, this is noisy business. The next one is at 1:30 p.m. Nov. 3. Family Days are from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturdays at the sawmill museum. This month the activity theme is Halloween. Games, crafts, and a train ride around the grounds, are part of the adventure. The 20-minute ride costs $2. The Midwest Lumber Train runs when the temperature is higher than 50 degrees and there is no rain. A drive to Clinton can be a step back into time to the days of lumberjacks. Just listen to the saw purr.

FOOD TRENDS

The tipping point of taste As demographics change in U.S., so does the menu MIAMI (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Salsa overtaking ketchup as Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s No. 1 condiment was just the start. These days, tortillas outsell burger and hot dog buns; sales of tortilla chips trump potato chips; and tacos and burritos have become so ubiquitously â&#x20AC;&#x153;American,â&#x20AC;? most people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even consider them ethnic. Welcome to the taste of American food in 2013. As immigrant and minority populations rewrite American demographics, the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collective menu is reflecting this flux, as it always has. And it goes beyond the mainstreaming of once-esoteric ethnic ingredients, something weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen with everything from soy sauce to jalapenos. This is a rewrite of the American menu at the macro level, an evolution of whole patterns of how people eat. The difference this time? The biggest culinary voting bloc is Hispanic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you think about pizza and spaghetti, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same thing,â&#x20AC;? says Jim Kabbani, CEO of the Tortilla Industry Association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People consider them American, not ethnic. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the same with tortillas.â&#x20AC;? With Hispanics making up more than a quarter of the U.S. population today â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and growing fast â&#x20AC;&#x201C; experts say this change is dramatically flavoring the American culinary experience. Hispanic foods and beverages were an $8 billion market in the last year, according to consumer research firm Packaged Facts. By 2017, that number may reach $11 billion. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s influencing how all Americans eat. Doritos, after all, are just tarted-up tortilla chips. As the entire menu of the American diet gets rewritten, the taste is getting spicier, with salsa and chipotle popping into the mainstream vernacular. And onto your dinner table: Marie Callenderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s has grilled shrimp street tacos with chipotle ranch dressing; Whataburger has a fire-roasted blend of poblano peppers in its chicken fajita taco; and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tomatillo verde salsa in the baja shrimp stuffed quesadilla from El Pollo Loco. From queso fresco to chorizo, traditional Hispanic foods â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or even just the flavors of them â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are making their way into our everyday diet, particularly among the millennials â&#x20AC;&#x201C; those born between the early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s and the turn of the century.

Siblings are hurt by grandpa playing favorites Dear Abby: My sisters and I just realized after comparing notes that our grandfather, who has been giving us an allowance for many years, gives each of us a different amount. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand why he would do that unless he is playing favorites. Mom says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s allowed to give each of us a certain amount per year for tax purposes, but it still doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t explain why the amounts are all different. We are a year apart in age, and the differences are substantial. Mom said Grandpa does this with her brothers and sisters, too. Why wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t he give each of us the same amount so that it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cause hard feelings? I know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s his money to do with as he pleases and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re lucky to get any at all, but knowing this has caused hurt feelings. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel comfortable asking him, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to understand. What can we do? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Lacking â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whyâ&#x20AC;?

However, if you do, make sure to phrase the question in a nonconfrontational way â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and be prepared for whatever his answer might be.

BACK TO SCHOOL

Veterans flocking to college after service Influx comes as wars wind down TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) – Adam Fisher isn’t your typical college freshman. At 25, he’s older than most of his classmates. He’s married, too. And while most of his fellow students spent the past couple years in high school, Fisher was dodging bullets and roadside bombs in Iraq and Afghanistan. Now a civilian, Fisher is trying to make the transition from the battlefields to the classrooms of the University of Toledo. About 2 months into a new mission, he is far from alone. Some 1 million veterans and their dependents have enrolled in U.S. colleges and universities over the past 4 years, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs. This influx of veterans has come with the drawdown of U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan and more generous financial incentives that generally cover a veteran’s tuition, housing, and books. Many veterans face an array of challenges in making the transition to

AP

Mick Grantham, 43, cuts the lawn at the University of Toledo’s Medical Center in Toledo, Ohio. When Mick Grantham enrolled at Toledo after back and neck problems forced him out of the Army, he plowed through his savings waiting for his disability benefits to kick in. The university’s military liaison arranged for the local American Legion to provide Grantham with a $500 grant, and pointed him to a job opening with the university’s grounds crew. college life. Some are medical. Fisher, who heard the screams of a soldier burning to death and had a buddy die in his arms, participates in group therapy for post-traumatic stress disorder. He also has some hearing loss. “It’s hard for me to be around so many people,” he said. “I don’t like it. It makes me feel very

uncomfortable.” Other challenges are academic. Veterans often have to sharpen their math, reading, and study skills after being away from school for so long. They face cultural hurdles, too. While many other freshmen are testing their independence after moving away from home for the first time, some of the veterans

back in school are supporting a family, working evenings and weekends. Veterans also must navigate the VA bureaucracy to ensure that their tuition and other aid, such as housing or disability benefits, are paid on time. Now, increasing numbers of colleges and universities are taking concrete steps to help them

make the transition, the University of Toledo among them. Nearly 400 veterans, including Fisher, are attending class this fall at the school. The president, Lloyd Jacobs, a former Marine, said they “bring strength to our culture, bring strength to our university that’s unparalleled.” The American Council on Education says about 71 percent of some 700 colleges and universities responding to a recent survey had an office or department dedicated exclusively to serving veterans. Before the Post9/11 GI Bill kicked in, a 2009 survey put that percentage at 49 percent. About two-thirds had clubs or organizations composed of veterans, double from the 2009 survey. Student Veterans of America, a coalition of student veterans on college campuses around the world, has branched out from fewer than 20 campuses to more than 880 in recent years. Michael Dakduk, the group’s outgoing executive director, said colleges have adjusted to the wave of veterans by hiring people exclusively

to serve them and their dependents. Schools also are establishing peer mentoring and tutoring programs. The extra resources give veterans the sense they don’t have to face the challenges of college life on their own, he said. The VA has placed counselors on 92 college campuses. The counselors connect students to local VA medical care and help them apply for other benefits. About 500 veterans attend school at Florida State University, an increase of about 40 percent from the previous fall. The school offers a class just for veterans called “strategies for veteran success.” It’s designed to boost their confidence and allows them to meet other veterans. The university holds a job fair for all students, but opens it up a day early for veterans on campus. It also allows students to defer many expenses, such as their books and meal plan, because of the time it takes to get VA payments processed. Officials at Florida State and Toledo say they hope other students will learn from the veterans.

ANALYSIS

WASHINGTON

Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget win has strings attached

Obama lashes Republicans

their party make a course correction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully, the lesson is to stop this foolish childishness,â&#x20AC;? said John McCain, the longtime Arizona senator. Republicans will have to quickly settle on a strategy. The deal that ended this monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standoff only keeps the government open through Jan. 15 and extends borrowing authority through Feb. 7, though emergency measures may give the administration another month before reaching the debt limit. The agreement also requires bipartisan negotiators to issue a report by Dec. 13 on broader budget issues like spending levels, deficit reduction and entitlement reforms â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all matters over which the White House and congressional Republicans have long been at odds. What happens during this next round of deadlines will help clarify whether Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s October win has done anything to alter the political dynamic in Washington or whether it was an isolated achievement. The White House said the president is entering the next phase of the debate with a similarly unyielding strategy. Aides said he is willing to make concessions as part of a larger budget deal but wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let Republicans make funding the government or lifting the debt ceiling contingent on certain outcomes. Some GOP leaders had assumed Obama would abandon that hard-line stance during the most recent debate. Many were taking their lessons from the last budget and debt fight in 2011, when Obama indeed made concessions to keep the government open and avoid a default.

BY JULIE PACE !SSOCIATED0RESS

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; By most measures, President Barack Obama emerged far stronger than his Republican adversaries in Washingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest fiscal fight. He gave away virtually nothing and his hardline tactics exposed deep divisions among Republicans and growing public frustration with the GOP. But Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s victory came with strings attached. Under his watch, big swaths of the federal government were shuttered for 16 days, forcing hundreds of thousands of workers off the job and restricting many services. The nation was brought to the brink of a default for the second time in 2 years. And Congressâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; last-minute deal generated yet another round of looming deadlines on the same issues, with no guarantee that Republican opposition to Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s objectives will be dampened in any way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What comes next is very unpredictable,â&#x20AC;? said Steve Schmidt, a Republican strategist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The notion that this group of people is going to be chastened by this, while it seems obvious, is uncertain.â&#x20AC;? Indeed, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little consensus among Republicans about how to proceed in the aftermath of the budget crisis. Some conservatives who demanded changes to Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health care law in exchange for funding the government have signaled theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready to dig in for another fight. Among them is Kansas Rep. Tim Huelskamp, who said Republicans may have â&#x20AC;&#x153;lost the battle, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to win the war.â&#x20AC;? But other GOP lawmakers are demanding that

Government spending still talk of Capitol WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; In withering day-after criticism, President Barack Obama declared Thursday that the 16-day partial government shutdown was a Republican-provoked spectacle that â&#x20AC;&#x153;encouraged our enemiesâ&#x20AC;? around the world. Elsewhere in Washington, and around the country, federal employees simply streamed back to their jobs. National parks reopened. The popular panda cam at the National Zoo came back online. But there was no letup in the political fight. Fresh from a defeat, tea party groups and their allies renewed fundraising efforts with a promise of future assaults on Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health care overhaul â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and a threat of more election primaries against Republican incumbents who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand with them. Government spending was still front and center. Inside the Capitol, lawmakers charged with forging a post-shutdown, deficit-cutting agreement in the next 60

Lawmakers voted to avoid a financial default Wednesday and reopen the government after a 16-day partial shutdown. days met privately. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We believe there is common ground,â&#x20AC;? said Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., chair of the Senate Budget Committee. Privately, however, officials in both parties said the prospects for a major breakthrough were dim, given differences over taxes and spending that have proven compromise-proof throughout the current 3-year era of divided government. A few hours after Obama placed his post-

midnight signature on legislation ending the long political showdown, Vice President Joe Biden was at the Environmental Protection Agency to greet returning employees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope this is the end of this,â&#x20AC;? he said, but he acknowledged â&#x20AC;&#x153;thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no guarantees.â&#x20AC;? That was a reference to the last-minute legislation that will fund the government only until Jan. 15 and give Treasury the ability to borrow above the $16.7 trillion

WASHINGTON

Obama taps Homeland Security secretary WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; President Barack Obama is calling back a trusted counterterrorism adviser from his first term by nominating former top Pentagon lawyer Jeh Johnson as secretary of homeland security. Obama plans to

announce Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nomination Friday. He must be confirmed by the Senate before taking over the post most recently held by Janet Napolitano, who stepped down in August to become president of the University of California system.

As general counsel at the Defense Department during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Johnson was an aggressive advocate on a number of complex and contentious legal issues. He oversaw the escalation of the use

limit until Feb. 7 or a few weeks longer. At the White House, Obama blended sharp criticism of Republicans with a plea for their cooperation over the remainder of the year and a call for less shrillness on both sides. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of the same folks who pushed for the shutdown and threatened default claimed their actions were needed to get America back on track,â&#x20AC;? he said in remarks in the State Dining Room.

The Bible tells us that our tongue is a small member of our body that can cause great damage. It compares it to a small fire that can set a forest ablaze. In the Bible, St. James tells us that if anyone can control their tongue, it proves that they have perfect control over themselves in every other way. He also tells us that sometimes our tongue praises our Heavenly Father, and sometimes it breaks out into curses against men who are made like God. Holding our tongue is not always an easy thing to do; however, we should try not to speak badly or spread rumors about others. Gossiping and spreading lies are not good and often can prove quite harmful and hurtful. When we know of someone who is constantly speaking badly of others, we must realize that they are probably also rumoring about us when we are not around. There is nothing that reflects a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s character more than what they say and the way they speak about others. A good person is kind and truthful, and their talking is free of curse words; they can be trusted not to speak of the faults of others. God wants us to live in harmony with our friends and loved ones, and holding our tongue will help us to develop a Godly relationship.From the same mouth come blessing and cursing. My brethren, this ought not to be so. - R.S.V. James 3:10

Play low for tricks to beat a contract

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

Darin Weinberg, a research sociologist, said, “It matters not whether you win or lose; what matters is whether I win or lose.” That is a good mantra for everybody, although no one wins all of the time. In bridge, winning and losing tricks in the right order is often important. In this deal, after the most common auction of all, South is in three no-trump. West leads a fourth-highest heart four. How should declarer play? South has five top tricks: four spades and one heart. He also seems to have several establishable tricks: one or two in hearts, one or two in diamonds and three in clubs. What could go wrong? Well, the original declarer,

expecting the opening lead to be away from the king, played low from the board. He planned to win with his jack, drive out the club ace and coast home with at least

one overtrick. However, South was sadly disappointed. East produced the heart king, then accurately shifted to the diamond four. When declarer drove out the club ace, West returned his second diamond and East took four tricks in the suit for down two. Now let’s try winning the first trick and playing on clubs. What happens? The contract succeeds. South has four spades, one heart and three clubs. If West leads back either red suit, declarer gains a ninth trick there. And if West returns a black suit, South plays a heart himself. Yes, this line sacrifices an overtrick when West has the heart king, but those 30 points are paltry when compared to the 400 lost by going down instead of making. © 2013 UFS

A Bay Area Rapid Transit train arrives at a station Tuesday in Oakland, Calif. A recipe for gridlock was brewing in the San Francisco Bay Area, as two of the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major transit agencies teetered on the brink of commute-crippling strikes. While talks between the Bay Area Rapid Transit agency and its unions to avoid the second walk-off in 4 months were set to resume on Tuesday, workers at a major regional bus line said they would go on strike in 72 hours.

STATE GOLF PREVIEW | SPOTLIGHT ON STERLING’S AUSTIN COOK

No fold from these Rockets Rock Falls surges to key BNC West win BY LARRY BRENNAN lbrennan@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 550

Sterling’s Austin Cook tees off Monday during the 2A Freeport Sectional at Park Hills Golf Course. Cook was diagnosed with leukemia as a sophomore, but is now part of the Warriors’ state-bound golf team as a senior.

What is Normal?

OREGON – Down by six early in Set 3 and watching Oregon’s Emy Wright collect kills left and right, Rock Falls was on the ropes. Instead of hitting the canvas, the Rockets hit back, storming to a crucial 16-25, 25-19, 25-21 Big Northern West win Thursday night at Oregon High School. Oregon, Rock Falls and Mendota all entered the night with two conference losses. “That was a great win. This was like our conference championship,” said Rockets junior middle hitter Bailey Schrader, who had a team-high nine kills. FOLD CONTINUED ON B5

ustin Cook finally reached Normal. Although he’d tell you the key to beating cancer was never leaving it. When he was diagnosed with leukemia a few days after passing his physical for golf his sophomore year, Cook’s first thought was that he was disappointed he wouldn’t be able to play golf.

“I really wanted to play golf that year,” Cook said Thursday afternoon, after shooting an 80 during his practice round at Weibring Golf Course, the home course of the Illinois State Redbirds and the site of the 2-day state meet that opens this morning. “It was real depressing for everybody,” fellow senior and teammate Zach Rehmert said. “He worked so hard that summer.” Cook, now a senior, had the first of four surgeries Aug. 5, and his sole goal during his battle was to keep life ordinary. “I basically tried to stay the same as much as possible,” he said. “I knew if I got negative, things would get weird. I just needed to stay positive.” But then, with the touch of a nerve, any chance of routine was derailed. NORMAL CONTINUED ON B3

Sterling’s Kaylee Martin fires the ball past Dixon’s Haley Fitzsimmons (8) and Lexy Duncan during their NIB-12 West match Thursday night at Lancaster Gym. Martin spiked a match-high seven kills as the Warriors topped the Duchesses on Volley for a Cure night, 25-18, 25-22.

SPORTS inside

DIXON – The last time Dixon and Sterling clashed on the volleyball court, the Duchesses came out with more intensity and turned it into an upset victory at Musgrove Fieldhouse. On Thursday night at Lancaster Gym, the Golden Warriors were determined not to let that happen again. With both teams clad in pink for Volley for a Cure night, the Warriors jumped out to leads in both sets before holding off several charges by the Duchesses to win their final match as

Bostonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s David Ross is out at home on a fielderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choice as he collides with Tigers catcher Alex Avila during the second inning of Game 5 of the ALCS on Thursday in Detroit.

Fast start, quick finish Red Sox make early lead stick in Game 5 BY NOAH TRISTER !03PORTS7RITER

DETROIT â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mike Napoliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s majestic homer began a rare early Boston breakthrough, Junichi Tazawa again bested Miguel Cabrera in a crucial spot, and the Red Sox moved within one win of reaching the World Series by edging the Detroit Tigers 4-3 on Thursday night. Boston returns to Fenway Park with a 3-2 lead in the AL championship series. Game 6 is Saturday, with the Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Max Scherzer facing the Red Soxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Clay Buchholz. Cabrera was thrown out

The Tigers scored a run on the grounder, but it was a trade-off the Red Sox were willing to make. Napoli led off a threerun second with a drive off Anibal Sanchez into the ivy beyond the wall in center field.

Detroitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s starters had allowed only three runs in 27 innings through the first four games of the series. After pitching six no-hit innings in Game 1, Sanchez allowed four runs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; three earned â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in six innings Thursday. Jon Lester allowed two runs and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings Thursday. He walked three and struck out three, and the Boston bullpen held on

to finish off the fourth game of the series to be decided by one run. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably a reason I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any hair,â&#x20AC;? Red Sox second baseman Dustin Perdroia said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stressful.â&#x20AC;? Down 4-2 in the seventh, the Tigers put runners on first and third with nobody out when Jose Iglesias and Torii Hunter singled. Cabrera, who struck out with runners at the corners against Tazawa in the eighth inning of a 1-0 loss in Game 3, hit a soft grounder to second for a double play this time.

MLB | NLCS GAME 6 PREVIEW

ST. LOUIS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; For four straight starts, Michael Wacha has been all but untouchable ... and appeared totally oblivious to the stakes. The St. Louis Cardinals need one more just like that from the pressureproof rookie to get to the World Series for the second time in 3 years. Wacha outpitched NL Cy Young front-runner Clayton Kershaw in Game 2, and the Cardinals won 1-0 on an unearned run to take a 2-0 series lead. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re matched again in Game 6 on Friday night, the precocious right-hander and the lefty whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be at the top of anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s list to work a must-win. This time, the Cardinals lead the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just expect Michael to go out and do what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done, just like the rest of our guys,â&#x20AC;? manager Mike Matheny said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stick with what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done all along the way, and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ignore and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deny the excitement.â&#x20AC;?

clubs get better at-bats, just from the standpoint of vision,â&#x20AC;? Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. Kershaw is the majorleague ERA leader 3 years running, and worked the Dodgersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; division clincher against Atlanta on 3 daysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rest. He gave up just

two hits in six innings of Game 1, and was ready to go long before the Dodgersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bats came alive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really think about the what-ifs,â&#x20AC;? Kershaw said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always assumed I was going to pitch Game 6.â&#x20AC;? Kershaw has a career 1-2 postseason record despite an impressive 2.88 postseason ERA. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All we have to do,â&#x20AC;? Gonzalez said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is score for him.â&#x20AC;? Wacha is 2-0 with a microscopic 0.64 ERA in the postseason, allowing just six hits in 14 innings with 17 strikeouts. Counting his last start of the regular season, when he was one out shy of a no-hitter, make it 3-0 with an 0.42 ERA. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just this whole postseason ride has been amazing,â&#x20AC;? Wacha said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hopefully we can just keep it going.â&#x20AC;? He knows how tough the opposing pitcher is, but says it canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be factor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kershawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tough pitcher, obviously, and you saw that in his last start,â&#x20AC;? Wacha said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I try not to worry too much about who Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m facing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just try to approach it like any other start and just worry about myself, really.â&#x20AC;?

Warriors increase intensity in NIB-12 West win over Duchesses LANCASTER

CONTINUED FROM B1

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when Kiarra Harris took over. The senior hitter reeled off nine straight points, including four consecutive aces, to give Sterling a 17-7 lead. Sandoval had two kills in the spurt, while Brooke Williams stuffed a pair of blocks and Taylor Hendrix added a kill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We preach before every game to stay on top of our energy and emotions,â&#x20AC;? setter Darien Bardoner said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been digging holes for ourselves a lot lately, and it felt good to come out and get the lead and momentum early tonight.â&#x20AC;? Blocks by Amy Rotella and Maggie Provo started a string of five straight points from Olivia Sztochmal after a Dixon sideout, and Sztochmal also

Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jamy Trancoso bumps the ball Thursday against Dixon at Lancaster Gym. The Warriors won 25-18, 25-22. sprinkled in an ace before a Rotella kill made it 17-13. Another Rotella block and a Provo ace brought the Duchesses to within 18-15. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for us to let the other team know weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to fight back and not just give up when we get behind,â&#x20AC;? setter Rachel Gascoigne said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got our energy and excitement level back up, and made some nice runs at them tonight.â&#x20AC;? But three kills from Kaylee Martin and an ace from Hendrix restored order for Sterling, and Harris answered Lexy Duncanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kill with a spike of her own to close out the opening set.

The second set was much like the first. Bardoner reeled off four straight points on four Dixon errors to start, and back-to-back kills by Martin made it 6-1. Another Martin kill answered a Jessa Long ace, and the teams traded points until 12-8. A service error by Sterling and a Rotella ace got Dixon to within 12-10, but the Warriors answered with Bardoner at the service line again. Two hitting errors by the Duchesses and a Hendrix block pushed Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead to 16-10. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we get on rolls, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because of our passing,â&#x20AC;? Trancoso said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without that, we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t set up our hitters to make the big impact they always make. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re happy with how we fought through things tonight.â&#x20AC;? Trailing 19-13, Rotella tried to take over for

the Duchesses. She had kills on three straight Dixon points â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with serving errors between each one â&#x20AC;&#x201C; before Duncanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s block made it 21-17. After another Rotella kill, the junior went back to the service line and ripped off back-to-back aces following a Sterling hitting error to cut the deficit to 22-21. But her next serve went long, and Bardonerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perfectly timed tip-kill in the middle of six Dixon defenders proved to be a back-breaker. Megan Loosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; kill answered a Rozek spike to close out the match. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re finally playing with some intensity and consistency,â&#x20AC;? Sterling coach Dale Dykeman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re learning that high-energy doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean reckless, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re controlling our emotions better both in good times and in bad.â&#x20AC;?

Martin led the Warriors with a match-high seven kills and added five digs, while Bardoner had 12 assists and eight points. Harris and Sandoval had four kills each, and Hendrix spiked three. Trancoso paced the back-row defense with 16 digs, while Sandoval added seven more. Rotella stuffed the stat sheet for the Duchesses, finishing with six kills, five points, four digs, three aces and two blocks. Rozek had four kills, five digs and two aces, Duncan added three kills and a block, and Long chipped in nine digs and four aces. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It helps to have the lead, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s less stressful and more fun to play when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ahead,â&#x20AC;? said Gascoigne, who dished 12 assists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sterling got that lead, got that momentum tonight, and they held on to it.â&#x20AC;?

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III looks for an opening against the Cowboys. The teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name has been a hot topic this season. Shaw Media columnist Tom Musick thinks maybe every team needs to be rebranded.

Change one, change them all I

n the NFL, the name of the game is to win. As for the names of the teams, well, they have the potential to offend. Take the Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; next opponent, for example. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re called the Washington Redskins, which is a derogatory term referring to Native Americans. The name originated in 1933 and, while much has changed in the past 70 years (we share drinking fountains now!), Redskins owner Daniel Snyder has resisted increased pressure to change the name. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are Redskins Nation,â&#x20AC;? Snyder wrote last week in an open letter to his fans, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and we owe it to our fans and coaches and players, past and present, to preserve that heritage.â&#x20AC;? However, Snyder seems less concerned when it comes to preserving a winning tradition. This marks his 15th season as owner, and the â&#x20AC;&#x153;we owe it to our fansâ&#x20AC;? Redskins have won all of two playoff games during that tenure. But I digress. Maybe the only way to get the Redskins to change their name is if every other NFL team changes their name, too. Maybe Snyder will be more willing to rebrand his franchise if it is merely one of 32 to embrace our changing times. Besides, think of the

Blues get best of Blackhawks again, this time in shootout

WATCH WA TCH EVERYTHING EVERYTHING GO ANYWHERE

The lead didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last long. Less than 3 minutes later, the Blues got the equalizer while on the power play. With Jonathan Toews off for slashing, Backes won the faceoff over Michal Handzus, then positioned himself in front to redirect a long Jay Bouwmeester shot. In the second, the Hawks regained the lead when Hossa and Patrick Sharp broke in two-on-none on Halak after a nifty backhand pass from defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson. Hossa ripped a shot from the slot that sailed over the goalieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right pad. Again, the Blues answered right back. Steen was credited with a goal after Hawks defenseman Duncan Keith inadvertently redirected the puck past Crawford and into his own net. From there, the goalies stood tall to send the game into overtime and then shootout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to see a lot of [the Blues],â&#x20AC;? Seabrook said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;fighting with them for spots in our division. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to be better against these guys.â&#x20AC;? The Blues entered the game with the most average penalty minutes in the NHL, but didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t draw their first until Jackmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boarding penalty on Kane. After playing a roughand-tumble-type game the last few seasons, St. Louis has mixed in more offensive skill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more focused on the ability to maintain possession with the puck and find the right way to do it,â&#x20AC;? Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said before the game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our game is evolving. We tried to work on getting balance, more than anything.â&#x20AC;?

More substance, style than scuffles Patrick Kane crumpled to the ice after the Bluesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Barret Jackman slammed him face-first into the boards. As the Blackhawks winger took stock of his body parts during the secondperiod play, Jackman took a shove or two from Kaneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teammates before heading to the penalty box. What last season likely would have escalated into an all-out brawl merely resulted in a Hawks power play â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in which the recovered Kane participated â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as the Central Division rivals, for the most part, have focused more on playing hockey than throwing fists in their first two meetings this season. The Blues won Thursday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skill game when T.J. Oshie scored the winner in the shootout to lift the visitors to a 3-2 victory over the Hawks in front of a crowd of 21,169 at the United Center. David Backes and Alexander Steen had goals in regulation, and Jaroslav Halak earned the victory in goal as the Blues prevailed in their first road game of the season. Marian Hossa had a goal and an assist, and Brandon Pirri notched his first career goal as the Hawks had their three-game winning streak snapped to drop to 4-1-2. Corey Crawford suffered the loss in goal for the Hawks, whose only defeat in regulation also came from the Blues (5-1-0). â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did a good job in the first period, but our second and third periods have to be better,â&#x20AC;? Hawks defenseman Brent Seabrook said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having tough time finding the back of the net, but we have to muscle these games out and win them 2-0, 2-1, 1-0. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the mindset we have to have when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not scoring goals.â&#x20AC;? Much of the early action was on the Bluesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; end, and the Hawks broke through with a score from Pirri, who was playing in his second game of the season. Hossa slid the puck to the left circle, where the rookie wheeled and rifled a shot off the left post and in.

Dukes get first win Dixon soccer beats LP; Sterling falls to Geneseo "Y36-3PORTS3TAFF

Ryan Ganson kicked the Geneseo Maple Leafs past the Sterling Golden Warriors 3-1 and to the top of the Northern Illinois Big 12 West in the de facto title game Thursday in Geneseo. Sterling (14-3-4, 8-1-1) freshman Tony Diaz tied the match at 1-1 with a goal off a Jesus Velazquez assist 14:45 into the first half. Ganson â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who gave Geneseo (15-5-2, 9-0-1) its 1-0 lead in the fifth minute â&#x20AC;&#x201C; scored 2 minutes into the second half. He then assisted on a James Bellenger tally about 5 minutes later. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That breaks my heart,â&#x20AC;? said Dixon coach Mahmoud Etemadi, whose Dukes will face Sterling on Tuesday in a Rochelle Regional semifinal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted them to win. I really enjoy watching Sterling play.â&#x20AC;?

Dixon 4, LaSalle-Peru 0: Reid Deets had two

goals and an assist for the Dukes (1-14-2, 1-81), who jumped out to a 1-0 lead on Sonny Barattaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal 7 minutes into action. Deets doubled the lead in the 48th minute before making it a 4-0 game midway through the second half. Brandon Jagitsch made five saves for Dixon, a couple of them on glaring scoring chances. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had an outstanding game,â&#x20AC;? Etemadi said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, winning against Oregon is like the icing on the cake for us,â&#x20AC;? Schrader said. Thanks to Wrightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heroics, the Hawks (217-1, 8-3) built an 8-2 lead to start Set 3. Wright had six kills in the burst, 10 in the set and a match-high 18 overall. Just when it looked like Oregon, which won 25-23, 25-23 at Rock Falls on Sept. 24, was going to complete the season sweep, back came the Rockets (19-13, 9-2). And, fast. An 11-2 tear suddenly made it 13-10 Rock Falls. Schrader and Bailey Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien (7 kills) had two kills apiece in the blitz, which also included a kill from Dallas Clevenger (7 kills), a block by Syndey Arickx (3 kills) and an ace by Katarina Horwedel (5 digs). The Rockets did not trail again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the beginning of the year, we would have crumbled in the second game and we would have been done,â&#x20AC;? Rock Falls coach Sheila Mammosser said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the maturity that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve excelled at lately. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve really kept our composure and done

a nice job battling back.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was rough, but our coach said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lesson learned,â&#x20AC;? said Wright, who also had 11 digs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gets us more prepared for the postseason. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough when we were going for the conference title, but we shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be too concerned. We need to move on.â&#x20AC;? Rock Fallsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lead jockeyed between one and four points the rest of the way. The last instance it was a one-point game was 16-15. Leading 23-21, the Rockets finished things with kills from Schrader and Clevenger. Oregon dominated the first set, jumping in front 6-0. Rock Falls never

truly threatened. The Rockets turned things around in Set 2, bolting to a 7-2 advantage and never trailing. Hawks coach Faith Watson took the loss hard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to blame this one on the girls,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to say this was my loss. This definitely humbled us a little bit.â&#x20AC;? Rock Fallsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Chelsi Blair dished out 19 assists, while Kaylyn Booker had a team-high eight digs. Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hailey Long contributed eight kills and 10 digs, while teammate Sommer Rhea had seven kills. Delaney Mahoney distributed 19 assists.

AP “I never thought I would see the Truck Series there; the Truck Series Tony Stewart, seen here Sept. 28 in Dover, Del., had proves that anything can happen,” a third surgery on his broken right leg Oct. 7, this time for an infection that cropped up since his last surgery. he said.

Sticking to moderate and practical plans will ensure that you progress with minimal setbacks this year. If you have critical decision to make, you should seek the advice of experts for the best results. Less waffling and more calculated action will lead to success. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Not everyone will look out for your best interests. Take a hands-on approach when dealing with know-it-alls. Overreacting and indulgence should be controlled. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Your talent and ability to get a job done in an innovative manner will win favors as well as enhance your reputation. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be called upon to do something special, so be prepared. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Look before you leap. Excitement and adventure may be beckoning, but so will danger, delays and unfortunate consequences. Stick close to home, where your efforts will be appreciated. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be torn between what you want to do and what you are being asked to do. Offer to take on more if it will ensure that you get to do both.
