16TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT

Hale: Kinzinger eyeing Senate Rockford Tea Party founder visits Dixon BY DEREK BARICHELLO dbarichello@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 526

DIXON – David Hale said he was tired of throwing peanuts from the gallery. The Rockford conservative and founder of the Rockford Tea Party is planning to challenge Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Channahon, in the 16th Congressional District primary. Hale told about 30 people at the Sauk Valley Tea Party’s monthly meeting Tuesday at Dixon’s Loveland Community House and Museum that he’s disappointed in the

job Kinzinger has done. Hale also hinted that the congressman may be eyeing a higher office – the Senate seat held by Mark Kirk. Hale, who works in health care technology, is in favor of reducing the size of government, free enterprise and eliminating unnecessary regulations on businesses, he said Tuesday. “The values and beliefs of the Tea Party,” he said. Hale said Tuesday that Kinzinger also ran under the Tea Party banner, then abandoned those values in Washington, and even started to turn on them. Kinzinger was among a Republican minority who voted for legislation to end the 2 1/2-week shutdown, allowing the government

to borrow money through at least February. The bill passed the House largely with the votes of Democrats. Kinzinger said in a news release that House Republicans fought to the brink to protect Americans from Obamacare, the initial reason behind Republicans’ decision to allow a shutdown. But Kinzinger defended his vote by saying that “surpassing our debt threshold would be incredibly damaging to our already weak economy ... .” Also, Kinzinger publicly said he opposed Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s efforts to defund Obamacare through the government shutdown.

Snow flurries and temperatures in the 30s did not prevent local fishermen from trying their hand at catching fish Tuesday afternoon on the Rock River in Oregon. Snow fell throughout most of the morning and early afternoon without accumulating. It will be a bit warmer today, but still with chances of rain and snow. The forecasted high is in the mid-40s.

ROCK FALLS

City has had same auditor for a decade Committee receives draft of audit Tuesday BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 529

ROCK FALLS – When the Rock Falls Finance Committee received a presentation of a draft of its audit report Tuesday night, it came from the same firm it has used for the last 10 years. CliftonLarsonAllen has been Rock Falls’ auditor since 2003, said City Administrator Robbin Blackert, when it took over for Lindgren Callihan Van

Osdol & Co., the firm that did the 2002 audit. “Auditors are only as good as the information you give them,” Blackert said prior to the meeting. “Two years ago we did a [request for proposals] for auditing firms, to see what the price is to see if it’s even worth switching.” The city decided to retain CliftonLarsonAllen, and Blackert said she was “happy” with the work the firm has done for the city. The Rock Falls City Council will decide, likely in January, whether to put out another request for proposals, which

Blackert said they aren’t required by law to do. The city also doesn’t have to accept the lowest bid, she added. Robbin “I think the Blackert most important part of your audit is your listening to and studying what’s given to you in the management letter,” she said. “And actually implementing those changes for oversight.” CliftonLarsonAllen’s Todd

Etheridge presented the Finance Committee with a draft of the audit, which was recommended for presentation to the City Council Nov. 5. In the management letter presented to the Finance Committee, Etheridge said there was an inadequate segregation of duties, which means CliftonLarsonAllen recommends the city have more checks and balances regarding such duties as receiving checks, depositing cash and reconciling bank statements.

Asked in August about her fundraising, Rep. Cheri Bustos, D-East Moline, said little. “My family has given me money,” she told a reporter during a factory tour in Sterling. “My former boss has given me money.” It turns out she was just scratching the surface. Rep. Cheri Her financial Bustos report for July through September revealed that hundreds more people donated to her 2014 campaign, with many contributions as small as $5, $10 and $15. Bobby Bustos, whose Schilling 17th District includes Whiteside County, will likely face her Republican predecessor, Bobby Schilling of Colona, in the November 2014 election. She beat him last year. As of Sept. 30, Bustos had raised $767,068, with $612,563 on hand. Schilling, who announced his campaign in early July, pulled in considerably less – $174,959, with nearly that much on hand as of Sept. 30.

CONTINUED FROM A1

When an audience member asked why Hale believes Kinzinger is speaking out against the Tea Party, the Rockford Republican said Kinzinger may be trying to say the right things to get Kirk’s seat. “This may be coming from left field,� Hale said before sharing his theory. The GOP might see Kirk as difficult to re-elect after having a stroke and he could resign 6 to 8 months after the election, Hale said. The seat would require an appointment from the Republican party, possibly Kinzinger, Hale suggested. “It is easier to run as an incumbent,� Hale said. Hale, a U.S. Army veteran, told those in attendance he opposes war in general, including efforts in Syria he said were aiding al Qaeda. He criticized Kinzinger for supporting those efforts in Syria. He said Kinzinger has had a propensity to spend, disagreeing with the congressman’s vote in favor of a $1 trillion farm bill, which included “pork barrel� spending on food stamps. He called it “crowbar politics,� or making last-

minute concessions with the other side to get a deal done. Hale told those in attendance he would limit himself to 4 terms, if he were elected. “No more than 8 years,� said the 50-year-old Hale. “I have better things to do with my life than to be wrangled in D.C.� If elected, Hale said Tuesday he would approach government with a strategic process, apply clear conservative policies, honor the Reagan approach to the other side of the aisle and “never run from, shrink from or abandon the Tea Party message or principals.� “I want to step up and lead, I feel that’s the only way to defend my nation,� said Hale, who made national headlines in 2011 when he caught the Wisconsin senators at a Rockford hotel who had fled their state during session in an attempt to stop a vote on reforms initiated by Gov. Scott Walker. His answer to America’s growing $17 trillion debt: “Take small bites.� He called for reducing taxes, cutting spending and getting rid of unnecessary regulations to invigorate business and create jobs. Taxpayers foot the bill for the $400 billion in interest on the debt, he said.

“We have to grow and cut,� Hale said. Kinzinger said groups, such as the Club for Growth and FreedomWorks, are raising money by saying some Republican members of Congress “are not pure enough.� The Club of Growth and FreedomWorks have funded candidates in GOP primaries whom they consider more conservative than incum-

bent Republicans. Hale said those groups are not supporting him. He defended those groups as strong “conservative establishments.� Hale collected signatures in Dixon Tuesday. He has about 1,000 signatures. He needs 842 to get on the ballot, but he said he would like to collect at least 1,500 in case any of them are contested.

OREGON

Test results expected soon in teen’s death State’s attorney will then decide about charges BY VINDE WELL Shaw News Service

OREGON – Test results that officials hope will shed light into the death of an Oregon teen in August might soon be available. Winnebago County Chief Deputy Coroner Bill Hintz said Tuesday that toxicol-

ogy and pathology tests could soon be completed in the death of Jonathan Williams. Williams, 18, died Aug. 11 at OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center in Rockford, after he was injured in a fight in the wee hours of Aug. 10 at an underage drinking party in the 800 block of Monroe St., in Oregon. Hintz said he expects to receive the results soon from the Chicago-area lab conducting the tests on tis-

sue samples taken during Williams’ autopsy. Ogle County State’s Attorney Michael Rock Jonathan Williams said Monday that once he receives the test results, he will decide whether anyone will be charged in the case. “We’re still waiting for the test results,� Rock said. “Once we get those, we

will decide if charges will be filed.� In the meantime, he said, Oregon police are continuing to investigate and follow up on leads. Because more testing than usual was done during the autopsy, Hintz said, the results have taken longer to come back. Williams, who would have been a senior at Oregon High School, was an organ donor. Oregon police were called about 3:15 a.m.

Aug. 10 by a neighbor who reported a disturbance outside the Monroe Street home. At that time, police arrested five teens for underage drinking outside the home and another a block away. Several more party-goers scattered when police arrived, DeHaan said. Mount Morris police and Ogle County deputies assisted at the scene. The fight had occurred outside the house before

ILLINOIS LEGISLATURE

IN BRIEF

Lawmakers off to slow start in fall session

Girl Scouts raising autism awareness

Scheduled votes called off for two major issues SPRINGFIELD (AP) – The Illinois Legislature’s fall session got off to a sputtering start Tuesday, as lawmakers delayed action on the two biggest issues on their agenda and a deal to address the state’s multibillion-dollar pension shortfall had yet to materialize. The sponsors of legislation to stiffen sentences for gun crimes and a measure to give Archer Daniels Midland Company up to $24 million in tax breaks to keep its global headquarters in Illinois called off scheduled votes. Even the biggest event of the day – a rally in support of samesex marriage that drew an estimated 3,000 people to the Capitol – was unlikely to bring any immediate action. Rep. Mike Zalewski, the sponsor of the gun bill, said work was still happening behind the scenes on several of the issues. “You have a lot of competing interests facing the General Assembly

‘‘

We knew we had to get common ground with other members, and we had space today to negotiate an agreement. Rep. Mike Zalewski, D-Riverside, on gun control legislation

and, similar to my bill, it’s important to get resolution before we start rushing bills through the process,� the Democrat from Riverside said. The legislation would require a 3-year prison sentence for illegally packing a loaded gun. Felons and gang members could get 10 years in prison. Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has made it a legislative priority because of rampant gun violence in Chicago, but the National Rifle Association is worried that lawabiding gun owners who are in the wrong place at the wrong time could get socked with a 3-year sentence. Zalewski said he put off a vote because a new round of negotiations began Tuesday with the NRA and downstate lawmakers who support gun rights. “We knew we had to get

’’

common ground with other members, and we had space today to negotiate an agreement,� he said. Rep. John Bradley, a Democrat from Marion, declined to say why the ADM deal and several other incentive packages didn’t get a vote, or when such action could occur. David Weintraub, ADM’s director of external communications, said in an email the company was “still in discussions with officials� and didn’t have an update Tuesday. ADM announced last month it planned to move its global headquarters from Decatur to a city with better global access. ADM hasn’t said what locations the company is considering, but Chicago officials said the city is on the list. Lawmakers also say they’re continuing to work on a compromise

deal to fix Illinois’ nearly $100 billion pension shortfall, which Gov. Pat Quinn on Tuesday said is a matter of “extreme emergency.� He disputed earlier statements by Senate President John Cullerton that the pension shortfall is not an imminent crisis but that finding a solution can keep the state’s income taxes down. The same-sex marriage bill, which was approved by the Senate in February, has been pending in the House since its sponsor opted not to call it in May because he didn’t have the Inside votes. Rep. (UNDREDS Greg Harris rally at said TuesCapitol day he’s FORGAY keeping an marriage, open mind A7. a b o u t whether he’ll call it this week or when the fall session resumes the first week of November. But several factors – including an early December deadline for candidates to challenge lawmakers in the March primary – could mean the timing is bad for any controversial votes.

police arrived in the earlymorning hours, DeHaan said. The police who responded to the call did not see Williams, and none of the people there at the time mentioned that he had been injured, he said. Williams was found unconscious and unresponsive inside the home at 8:19 a.m., after a second 911 call from someone who had spent the night at the home after the party, DeHaan said.

During the 3-month reporting period, Bustos added $304,730 to her coffers, nearly twice that of Schilling, who was in the race almost that entire time. Through Act Blue, a liberal political action committee, Bustos raised $35,049 for her campaign. The group acts as an Internet conduit for people to donate. It is one of the largest sources of money for Democrats. She also received nearly $8,000 from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. She pulled in a little more than $7,000 from JStreet, a PAC that promotes Israel, where she visited this year. Locally, her donors include Ed Andersen, the retired CEO of CGH Medical Center, who has given $1,000 so far. For Schilling, GOP governor candidate Bruce Rauner, a billionaire venture capitalist, and his wife, Diana Rauner, contributed $7,800 to the campaign. Their combined donations make them the largest donor. Among other large contributions were

$5,000 from both the Tuesday Group PAC, a centrist Republican group, and Prosperity PAC, which is affiliated with Wisconsin’s Paul Ryan, the Republican congressman who ran for vice president last year. Schilling’s local contributors include Larry Gerdes ($3,000), a Lee County landowner who is opposed to wind farm development. Others are Leo Wahl of Sterling ($500), Max Dahl of Erie ($1,000), and Kay Ferris of Sterling ($250).

Kinzinger readies for tea party challenge In the 16th District, which includes Lee County, Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Chann a h o n , has raised $776,300 and had $539,862 in his coffers as of Sept. 30. Rep. Adam His b i g Kinzinger contributors included Prosperity PAC ($5,000), Nuclear Energy Institute PAC ($5,000), National Association of Broadcasters PAC ($5,000), Honeywell PAC ($6,055) and Boeing PAC ($7,000).

say little about their fundraising, preferring to talk about their meetings with constituents rather than wealthy donors. Both Bustos and Kinzinger have been largely silent about their fundraising. When Bustos was running for office last year, though, she issued a news release about how successful her campaign was in fundraising compared with Schilling, a one-term incumbent. She noted that her campaign had outraised her opponent by more than $100,000. No news release was issued this time, despite Bustos having more than triple the cash that Schilling has on hand. On Tuesday, Bustos’ spokesman, Colin Milligan, declined to talk specifics about the report. “From Day 1, Congresswoman Bustos’ priorities have been clear – creating good-paying jobs, protecting Medicare and Social Security, and serving the hardworking people of Illinois’ 17th Congressional District,� Milligan said in a statement.

CHICAGO

Pitchman pleads for mercy, jailed Man claims he has no more money left CHICAGO (AP) – A federal judge rejected an impassioned plea from a television pitchman for his freedom on Tuesday, ordering U.S. Marshals to lock up Kevin Trudeau for failing to pay a $37 million civil judgment. The visibly exasperated judge had already ordered that Trudeau be jailed during a hearing in Chicago when Trudeau stood up and asked if he could address the court. The Federal Trade Commission won the judgment after accusing Trudeau of hoodwinking viewers about his weight-loss books. “There are no more assets to turn over, your honor,� the 50-year-old Trudeau insisted during a 10-minute plea, at times striking a note of desperation. “I’m

going to be incarcerated ... and I don’t know what to do.� Judge Robert Gettleman seemed unimpressed. “Thank you, Mr. Trudeau,� he said flatly. “My order stands.� The judge then directed two marshals to lead Trudeau out of the courtroom and take him to a nearby jail. Gettleman, like FTC lawyers, balked at Trudeau’s insistence that he is penniless – noting that he recently spent hundreds of dollars on cigars and a haircut. On Tuesday, Gettleman added that he has seen no sign Trudeau was cooperating to verify where he does and doesn’t have assets. “I haven’t seen any new information, only resistance,� Gettleman said. “This has to end.� The judge said the only way Trudeau would get the message “is to incarcerate him.�

New lawmaker gets assignments

C

ommissioners, did you see the display? The children of Dixon had some ideas to share with you on how to spend the $40 million from the lawsuit settlement with its former auditors and bank, as well as recovery from the sale of Rita Crundwell’s assets. Fourteen children at Bright Beginnings After School Care sent in colored drawings with their ideas, in response to my Dateline Dixon column last week about the city asking children to share their opinions for how to spend the money. The ideas were so cute, they brought a smile to the faces of City Hall staff and warranted a display at Monday’s City Council meeting. Go see it for yourself, if you get the chance. They are sure to bring a smile to your face. They are hanging on a board in the second-floor council chambers for all to see under a sign that says: “With $40 million, I would ...� The exercise showed just how unselfish and community-minded children can be. For instance, Brooklyn Butler, 6, wants to “build a new children’s hospital,� and Maddy Loomis, 6, wants to “buy new walls for houses that are broken,� while Jayden Toms, 5, would like to “build a big building where people could buy everything healthy.� Four of the 14 children, Sadie Baxter, 7, Sydney Chesley, 8, Kalob Stack, 10, and Grace Krzykowski, 6, were in favor of building a new swimming pool in some capacity. Kalob even said, “Fix the Memorial Pool.� Five-year-old Sam Gingras’ suggestion to “buy more candy to give all the people� is sure to keep Dixon’s dentists busy. Imagine how many tons of candy $40 million could buy. Displaying civic pride and knowledge beyond her age, 8-year-old Natalie Tucker asked to “plant petunias all over town.� Her drawing of the pink

Be a positive role model and mentor for the next generation Instructor looks for businesses where students can job shadow DANA FELLOWS Dixon

Often times I hear the phrase, “It takes a community to educate a child.� I believe this to be true, but lately I have run into a few roadblocks. There is a big push toward college and career readiness for students, and the state of Illinois is really pushing the P-20 initiative, which is defined as follows: the “P� in the name represents preschool, and “20� stands for grade 20 and education beyond college. With this big push, I thought it would be a great time to resurrect a job shadowing and internship program in the computer technology program at the Whiteside Area Career Center.

In the past, we did an internship program, but because of lack of sites, we put the internship program for computer technology into hiatus. With this new push, I thought it would be Dana an excelFellows lent time to get internships and job shadowing going again. I understand the demand on a business to have an intern on site for an extended length of time, so I downsized the program to a jobshadowing program. I reached out to a limited number of businesses, and although a few responded positively and without hesitation, a majority either responded negatively or did not respond at all. Some responses that I get back from sites are as follows: We are way too busy to take time to work with students.

We are very slow right now, and the student would not get to see much. We can’t have students due to confidentiality. We can’t due to privacy. We can’t due to liability. We can’t because we are short staffed. We can’t because we have employees laid off. We are not equipped to do this. I’ll talk to our staff and get back to you. I ask for everyone to take time and think before responding to anyone asking to intern or job shadow at your organization. Every one of us was a student at one point of our lives. Some of us had, and still do have, mentors that we look up to. We can choose to be a mentor and make a conscious decision to do something positive and influence others. If you choose not to be a mentor, please remember that you are still a

role model, like it or not. Everyone is a role model; some of us are positive role models, and some are negative role models. We do not have a choice because we don’t know who looks up to us.

Do your part to help domestic violence victims VERONICA HENRY-REDELL Dixon

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and the YWCA of the Sauk Valley would like readers to be aware of both the extent and the danger of domestic violence in our area. People are often surprised when we tell them the YWCA serves 600 to 800 victims of domestic violence each year. Yet, our community has seen and felt the awful devastation that domestic violence can leave in its path. We have read in our

local papers and heard on the radio about local women and children killed by someone who was supposed to love them. These aren’t strangers in a big city far away; they are our neighbors, friends, family and co-workers. We would like to thank the employees of Crest Foods, who recently lost a co-worker to domestic violence, for their support of the YWCA’s services. Crest Foods not only gave a generous donation of goods but also made a cash contribution that will allow us to strengthen our services to local survivors of violence. We thank them very much for their support. As a community, we

can support women and children whose lives have been negatively affected by domestic violence. We also can hold perpetrators of domestic violence accountable. As a community, we can ask perpetrators of domestic violence why they are making the choice to abuse and demean their partner. Certainly, asking those questions is better than questioning the victims about why they stay, or why they return to their partner. Together, we can make an impact on this epidemic of violence in our community and in other communities. To find out how you can help support victims of domestic violence, call

Dynamo or dud. Lawmakers began their annual 2-week veto session Tuesday and could tackle major unresolved issues like pension reform, same-sex marriage, and back pay owed to some state workers. Or, the Legislature could once again decide to put those issues off until another day, leaving Springfield in early November with little to show for the time back in session. “I don’t know how productive it’s going to be,� said Sen. John Sullivan of Rushville, a member of the Senate Democrats’ leadership team. “I think there’s going to be a very light agenda,� said Rep. Rich Brauer, R-Petersburg. Here’s where some of the issues stand heading into the veto session.

0ENSIONREFORM Just as it has been for months, pension reform remains on the lips of lawmakers as the No. 1 issue facing the state and one that must be addressed sooner rather than later. And just as it has been for months, a clear solution to resolving the problem of ever-increasing state pension costs is nowhere to be seen. A conference committee studying pension reform that was created in June has not yet come up with a plan that has the support of six of the committee’s 10 members. Five Democrats on the committee support a proposal that cuts annual cost-of-living adjustments to pension benefits, but also reduces employee contributions by 1 percentage point. One Democrat feels the changes being discussed are too onerous for workers. The four Republicans on the committee have balked at supporting the Democrats’ plan, in part because it will continue to consume a large amount of state revenue for years to come. They want additional savings by raising the retirement age, creating a 401(k)-style retirement plan, and not reducing employee contributions. Public employee unions oppose the latest proposal and want the House to take up a reform plan negotiated by the unions that was previously approved by the Senate. That plan had been backed by Senate President John Cullerton, D-Chicago, but he said recently he supports the latest reform ideas advanced by Democrats on the conference committee. A spokesman for House Speaker Michael Madigan, D-Chicago, indicated

“For the most part, officials love secrecy because it is a tool of power and control, not because the information they hold is particularly sensitive by nature.� John Reid, information commissioner of Canada, 1999

it would be preferable to have the conference committee endorse a plan.

3AME SEXMARRIAGE The Senate last spring approved Senate Bill 10 that authorizes same-sex marriage in Illinois. The House did not. On the final day of the spring session. Rep. Greg Harris, D-Chicago, the bill’s principal House sponsor, acknowledged he didn’t have the necessary 60 votes lined up to pass it and opted not to call it for a vote. “Over the summer, there’s been an unprecedented outpouring across the state of people in support of this issue,� Harris said. “I am hoping my colleagues return ready to vote and make it the law in the state of Illinois.� A representative of the Illinois Family Institute said she doesn’t think there are enough votes in the House to pass the bill. “Here’s the bottom line,� said IFI operations director Kathy Valente. “We believe marriage needs to be protected and supported, not redefined.�

!$-INCENTIVES Lawmakers could vote on legislation to give Archer Daniels Midland $24 million in tax incentives over the next 2 decades to keep its headquarters in Illinois. The Decatur-based company wants to relocate its corporate headquarters to a metropolitan area to make international travel easier and make it more attractive for recruiting new talent. The company is considering Chicago among other locales. Quinn has said lawmakers should not take up the incentive request until something is done to resolve the pension situation. Some lawmakers question giving the corporate giant tax breaks.

/THERISSUES There are only three vetoed bills pending where lawmakers could act to override Quinn. Perhaps the highest profile of those is a bill reducing the number of free admission days that museums must offer. Bills have also been introduced to remove poker runs from the state’s charitable gaming law. The fundraising events were added to the gaming law last spring, but supporters of them have complained about permits and fees they are now required to pay.

Hundreds rally at Capitol for gay marriage Opponents vow to protest today SPRINGFIELD (AP) – Activists and supporters frustrated that Illinois still hasn’t legalized same-sex marriages demanded swift action during a rally Tuesday at the state Capitol, as lawmakers returned to Springfield to deal with several other weighty issues. Five months after the legislation stalled in the Illinois House, an estimated 3,000

turned out for the “March on Springfield,� with many waving signs and flags. Also present were some of the state’s top elected officials, including U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, Illinois Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka, and Gov. Pat Quinn. “This is our hour, this is our moment,� Quinn, a Chicago Democrat, said while describing the legislation as the “most important civil rights measure� facing the state. Legislators returned to

work with the potential for several hefty issues on the agenda, including ending gridlock on the state’s nearly $100 billion pension problem, mandatory minimum sentences for gun crimes, and incentives for companies to stay in Illinois. But on Tuesday, activists’ focus remained on the gay marriage issue. Those who oppose it – including mega churches in the Chicago area – vowed to protest the issue in Springfield on

SANDWICH

Wednesday, starting with a prayer vigil. “We in the last couple years have come to understand and appreciate how the Legislature works,� said Tim Kee, of Marion. Kee and his longtime partner, Rick Wade, are two plaintiffs in a pending gay marriage suit in Cook County Circuit Court. “We’d rather this not go through (yet) instead of fail,� Kee said. Still, others, including Jeffrey Smith of Chicago, said

they’ve been “profoundly disappointed� by the House’s failure to bring the measure up for a vote. Earlier in the year, a samesex marriage bill passed the state Senate but stalled in the House, where it needs 60 votes for passage – 71 to be effective immediately. House Speaker Michael Madigan said in late September that about a dozen votes were still needed. Advocates have said there’s been significant progress. Activists and gay

rights groups revamped their campaign by hiring a top union lobbyist, organizers across the state and the former chairman of the Illinois Republican Party. “We’re within striking distance, but I’m not making a prediction because we were promised this was going to happen in May,� said Chicago gay marriage advocate Rick Garcia.

Teacher wins education honor Woman faces immigration charges for Israel bombing SANDWICH (AP) – A northern Illinois secondgrade teacher got the red carpet treatment when she returned to her classroom in Sandwich this week after being named the Illinois’ teacher of the year. Pam Reilly won the award during a weekend banquet. The teacher at Woodbury Elementary was chosen from one of 11 finalists from across the state. Reilly’s students played music for her as she walked down a paper red carpet at the school on Monday. “I knew there were so many fantastic finalists that I truly was surprised to hear my named called, and I’m very honored,� Reilly told The (DeKalb) Daily Chronicle. “There are just so many amazing teachers across the state and I’m witness to their dedication.� Reilly, who earned her undergraduate degree from Aurora University and a master’s degree in education from National Louis University, will represent the state in a national competition. “Pam’s passion for teach-

Koch said in a statement. “She really inspires her students, their parents and her colleagues.� Principal Shirley DeCorte nominated Reilly for the award. “I nominated her because she always puts her students first, finding creative

ways to make sure they are all included in the learning process,� she said.

CHICAGO (AP) – An Arab-American community activist from the Chicago suburbs was arrested Tuesday on immigration charges for allegedly lying about her conviction for a deadly bombing more than 40 years ago in Israel. Rasmieh Yousef Odeh, 66, spent a decade in an Israeli prison for her involvement in a 1969 attack that involved bombs planted at a crowded Jerusalem supermarket and a British consulate, according to a federal indictment. Only one bomb – one of two

placed at the supermarket – exploded, killing the two people, and wounding several others. Israeli authorities have said the attacks were planned by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. An Israeli military court sentenced Odeh to life in prison in 1970, but she was released 10 years later in a prisoner exchange with the Popular Front. Israel released 76 prisoners in exchange for an Israeli soldier captured in Lebanon, according to Odeh’s indictment. But U.S. authorities accuse Odeh of failing

to mention her conviction and time in prison on immigration papers when she came to the U.S. from Jordan in 1995 and before she became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 2004, the indictment says. Odeh was arrested Tuesday morning at her home in Evergreen Park, just southwest of Chicago, according to prosecutors. She moved to the Chicago area shortly after gaining citizenship in Detroit in 2004, said Khaalid Walls, a spokesman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Cross-dressing husband worries his secret is out Dear Abby: I am a happily married, heterosexual, dearABBY cross-dressing male. My Abigail Van wife understands and is Buren’s supportive, and we have a (Jeanne wonderful life together.

Press We’re not sure what to Syndicate. do. If you have any suggestions, we are all ears. – Caught in a Panic bors your female attire is what you’ll be wearing Dear Caught: Because to a costume party. It’s you would prefer to keep plausible. your cross-dressing priHowever, when somevate and this is October, one is “caught” engaging you could tell your neigh- in a private activity once –

that’s an accident. When it happens three times in one week, I can’t help but wonder whether on some level you would like to be more open about your lifestyle. If you’re not aware, a resource, The Society for the Second Self (Tri-Ess International), offers support for heterosexual cross-dressers as well as their spouses, partners, and families. It has been in my column before and is the oldest and largest support organization for cross-dressers and those who love them. It promotes cross-dressing

with dignity and decency, and treats spouses on an equal basis with their cross-dressers. You can learn more about it at www.tri-ess.org. Dear Abby: My best friend’s husband has been texting me. When he did it the first time, he had been drinking and my friend was asleep. Some of the things he said made me uncomfortable, but I also didn’t like that he said his wife didn’t know what he was doing. He stopped after I told him I was uncomfortable with it.

Now he has started up again, offering support because my mother passed away recently. I am honestly not sure whether he’s trying to be a good friend or if he’s looking for something more, and that scares me. I don’t want to start trouble between my friend and her husband, especially because they seem so happy together. Any ideas on how to handle this? – Unsettled in Ohio Dear Unsettled: Yes. Your friend’s husband may be a genuinely sym-

pathetic person – or he could be trying to take advantage of you while you’re emotionally vulnerable. Listen to your gut. Tell him you appreciate his thoughtfulness, but you already have a support system in place and are receiving all of the emotional support you need.

HALLOWEEN CUISINE

Play with noir-hued ingredients for a grown-up seasonal dinner

H

BY BILL DALEY MCT News Service

alloween menus, if there are such things beyond raiding the kids’ plastic jack-o’lanterns, tend to get all punny and cutesy with the likes of boo-berry cupcakes, wormy pasta dishes, and, always, some sort of hard-cooked egg that is supposed to be a bloodshot eye. Har-har, indeed. This year, do Halloween in a more elegant way. Make a meal starring foods that are as black as they can possibly be to create a noir-hued menu designed to raise eyebrows – deliciously. What’s interesting about these inky dark ingredients is that any accent color in a dish – the orangey pink of a baby octopus in a tangle of squid ink pasta, say, or the green tip of an asparagus spear amid the grains of a bowl of forbidden rice – will stand out dramatically against the black. There’s much to discover in black foods, once you get past the innate fear of mortality that color has long symbolized – or maybe embrace that; it is Halloween, after all. Savor the black olive: decadently deep and winey. Be surprised at the sturdy nuttiness of black rice. Savor the slipperiness of squid ink linguine or the plushness of long-simmered black beans. Then there’s the electric tartness of fresh blackberries and the visual shock of ice cream made from black sesame seeds. And don’t forget black licorice or nori seaweed. Here are some ideas (and a couple of recipes) to bring the darkness of the night indoors.

Squid ink pasta: Garnish with chopped tomatoes and sauteed squid or octopus (see recipe); sauce the pasta in a mustard cream, garnished with a spoonful or two of black caviar; pair black farfalle with poached lobster (a recipe idea from “The Scarpetta Cookbook� by Scott Conant). Black rice: Make a pilaf, cooking the rice with dried cherries, currants, and chopped mango; stir-fry with bits of fried egg, green onions, and tiny shrimp; wrap black rice tortillas around chicken in a mole sauce; toss cooked black rice in a sesame oil vinaigrette, topped with slivers of toasted nori and black radish rounds. Black olives: Stuff hard-cooked eggs with tapenade; make flatbread pizza topped with slivered Nicoise olives, sprigs of fresh rosemary, and a grating or two of Parmesan cheese; or serve olives seasoned with orange, garlic, and fennel (see recipe). Blackberries: Mortar the layers of a devil’s food chocolate cake with a blackberry jam, either your own or store bought; top an espresso-stained custard or chocolate pudding tart with rows of fresh blackberries; create a blackberry-lavender compote (recipe idea from “The Artisan Jewish Deli at Home� by Nick Zukin and Michael C. Zusman). Black lentils: Serve straight up to showcase these glistening beauties, or as a bed for a roast meat entree or vegetable saute. Or pair with black rice and sauteed mushrooms (recipe idea from Mollie Katzen’s “The Heart of the Plate�). BLACK CONTINUED ON A10

What’s a person to do when the trick-or-treaters are gone but the candy isn’t?

What to do with leftovers? BY LAUREN CHATTMAN MCT News Service

Every year, I buy bags of Halloween candy, just in case a hundred trick-or-treaters decide to drop by my house. Maybe two or three groups of kindergartners will ring the bell. After dark, it gets very quiet. I watch “Children of the Corn� on pay-per-view as I wait in vain for scary teenagers to knock on the door. The next morning, my leftover candy begs to be put to use. There isn’t much you can do with truly horrible Halloween leftovers, such as Smarties, Blow Pops FREE KITCHEN DESIGNS BY Jocelyn Lilly, Kitchen Design:

and the dread Nerds. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best to save these colorful items to decorate a holiday gingerbread house in a month or two. But here are some ideas for using the good stuff in quick and fun desserts.

Chocolate-mint frosted brownies As soon as you pull your brownies from the oven, cover the surface with leftover Junior Mints. Let stand for 10 minutes, then smooth the melted candy into an even layer with a small metal spatula. Let cool completely and allow the mint-chocolate â&#x20AC;&#x153;frost-

ingâ&#x20AC;? to set before slicing and serving.

Milky Way hand pies Place a mini Milky Way in the center of a small (3-inch) circle of storebought puff pastry dough. Fold the dough over to cover the candy bar and seal by crimping edges with the tines of a fork. Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with sugar. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, then bake in a 375-degree oven until golden, 30 to 40 minutes.

ALL THINGS PUMPKIN

The new â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; food â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and drink Sales up 28 percent so far this year

I

BY KAVITA KUMAR MCT News Service

tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good time to be a pumpkin eater. As a lifelong devotee of pumpkin, I have been keenly aware of the plethora of pumpkin options that have been proliferating in recent years. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no longer just about pie. It seems as if every local craft brewery has its own version of pumpkin beer. Most coffee shops seem to have a pumpkin latte on the menu at this time of year. And pumpkinflavored cupcakes, breads, and other forms of sweet pumpkin goodness abound. The folks over at Nielsen have taken noticed, too, and have quantified just how much more pumpkin Americans are consuming these days. They found that sales of pumpkin-flavored products in the U.S. grew 19 percent last year, accounting for more than $290 million in revenues. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not showing any signs of slowing down. Sales of all things pumpkin-flavored are up 28 percent so far this year through early September â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well before the big pumpkin season even got going, said Todd Hale, Nielsenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior vice president of consumer insights. For better or for worse, one school of thought is that pumpkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent rise in the ranks could be traced back to, yes, Starbucks, which has an acronym for its wildly popular and highly anticipated Pumpkin Spice Latte â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or PSL. Starbucks began selling its PSL 10 years ago and since then has sold more than 200 million of them. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most popular seasonal beverage ever. Many consumers may have first given the

pumpkin latte a trial at Starbucks, Hale said. And they obviously liked it. So much so that manufacturers and retailers have likely taken notice of its success and have jumped on the pumpkin bandwagon, too. After all, once manufacturers find success with a flavor in one category, they know it can likely work in other foods and beverages, too, he added. According to Nielsen, pie filing is still the most popular use of pumpkin, followed by coffee, cream, baking mixes, and beer. Some more unconventional uses of pumpkin â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in frozen waffles, milk, and ice cream â&#x20AC;&#x201C; also made the top 10 list. Notwithstanding the pumpkin beer from the previous fall that I keep stockpiled in my fridge all year long, signs suggest that pumpkin is becoming a year-round product. But for the most part, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still closely tied to fall. Ted Drewesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Great Pumpkin â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which is a mouth-pleasing blend of fresh pumpkin pie, vanilla custard, and whipped cream â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is one of its most popular seasonal products, said general manager Travis Dillon. The iconic frozen custard peddler has been selling it for about 15 years and has seen the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appetite for it grow over the years. Ted Drewes used to not roll it out until October. But because of popular request, the business has been introducing it earlier and earlier to the point it now comes out around Labor Day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We keep it seasonal, but my goodness, before we even start selling it, people are asking about it,â&#x20AC;? Dillon said. Yes, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve thought about selling it all year round. But then they would probably have to use pumpkin pie filling made with preservatives,

ABOVE: With the crisp air of fall and with Halloween and Thanksgiving approaching, pumpkin continues to expand its flavor presence in foods. Bottles of Schalflyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pumpkin Ale roll off the production line in Maplewood, Mo. RIGHT: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no secret that pumpkin is the ingredient du jour. You will find it everywhere. Pictured: canned pumpkin. and that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do, he added. Schlafly raised some eyebrows earlier this year when it released its most anticipated beer of the year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you guessed it, pumpkin beer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in early August. Is that as bad as the retailers who started airing Christmas shopping commercials last month? The Schlafly crew hopes not. They say they have to start brewing it early in the summer because of the huge demand for it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not trying to be the first to the market, and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any market research telling us that we should release Pumpkin Ale in August,â&#x20AC;? wrote Schlafly spokesman Troika Brodsky in a blog post. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our release schedule is what it is because it is literally the only way we can make

this work if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to increase how much Pumpkin Ale we can get to our fans.â&#x20AC;? The local brewery plans to increase the production of its pumpkin beer by 75 percent this year. That means it will make up about 10 percent of the brewing that takes place at Schlafly Bottleworks this year, surpassing that of Hefeweizen or Kolsch. So what explains this sudden insatiable appetite for all things pumpkin? Surely Starbucks canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be the main reason. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an interesting question: Could the economy be another factor in pumpkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meteoric rise? â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the trends weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen is that in tough economic times, indulgent foods still win,â&#x20AC;? said Nielsenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hale.

He added that premium chocolates and coffee have also been showing more growth recently when compared to their more run-of-the-mill counterparts. When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re feeling

financially stressed, it can be a nice escape to treat yourself to a rich dessert or a fine beverage. Besides, he added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What makes you happier than pumpkin?â&#x20AC;? Indeed.

Some plays might give player gift

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

George Ade, a columnist and playwright who died in 1944, said, “If it were not for the presents, an elopement would be preferable.” That is a distinctly materialistic attitude. In bridge, though, you will get presents, especially from defenders. And there is an elopement play – it is featured in this deal. First, though, look at the North hand. South opens two spades, a weak two-bid showing a respectable six-card suit and some 5-10 high-card points. What should North respond? Second, how should South play in four spades after West leads the diamond queen? In the bidding, there is an instinct to head for no-trump in the face of a misfit. But

how will three no-trump ever make? Even if East ducks the first round of spades, North has only seven tricks: one spade, one heart, three diamonds (benefiting from the

3-3 break) and two clubs. Instead, North should raise to four spades. At first glance, it looks as though declarer will lose two spades, one diamond and one club. But perhaps he can take 10 tricks. To be honest, working out what to do in this deal requires some guesswork. However, with this layout, South can score his three low trumps with an elopement. He wins the first trick on the board and plays a trump to his king. When that wins, he continues with the spade queen. Suppose East takes his ace and returns the spade 10. South wins, plays a heart to dummy’s ace, ruffs a heart in his hand, plays a diamond to the ace, ruffs another heart, takes dummy’s top clubs, and ruffs the last heart to make his contract. © 2013 UFS

JOB OUTLOOK

Sluggish U.S. hiring shows effects of budget impasse Economist: Labor market was losing momentum before partial shutdown WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A dim view of the U.S. job market emerged Tuesday with a report that employers cut back on hiring in September just before a partial government shutdown began. About 148,000 jobs were added last month, a steep drop from Augustâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gain, though they were enough to lower unemployment to 7.2 percent from 7.3 percent in August. The report bolsters expectations that the Federal Reserve will maintain its pace of bond purchases for the rest of 2013 to try to keep long-term loan rates low. The governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s release of the September jobs report had been delayed 2 ½ weeks by the shutdown. Temporary layoffs during the 16-day shutdown will probably depress Octoberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job gain. That means a clear picture of the job market wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t emerge before November jobs figures are issued in December. Average U.S. job growth has fallen sharply in the past 3 months after a prom-

A shot by the Golden Warriors’ Carlos Gallardo, however, was the only one to find its way home.

onny Football almost ended up playing not too far from Johnny Football. Eastland junior Donny Groezinger, whom classmate Walter Ollie affectionately – and appropriately – gave the aforementioned nickname, could easily be a cog in a Texas powerhouse’s engine. Groezinger’s parents, Donald Sr. and Shawni, bought a house in Sulphur Springs a few years ago. That’s about a 3½-hour drive from College Station, where Johnny Manziel leads the Texas A&M Aggies.

But Donny and his three sisters – his older brother, Louis, was already out of the house – dissented. Even though they were all straight-A kids more than capable of acclimating to a new life in a very different place, they didn’t want to leave their friends. And Donny didn’t want to play for anyone other than Eastland-Pearl City. “The conversations were tough,” Donny said.“My sisters and I didn’t really want to move, and we had a lot of frustrations and stuff telling our parents that we didn’t want to move. It was their choice, ultimately, and I’m glad they decided to stick it out here.” SIDESTEP CONTINUED ON B3

Eastland-Pearl City junior Donny Groezinger convinced his parents to put off moving to Texas until after he and his siblings graduate from high school. Part of the reason was so that he could help the Wildcatz football team.

Extend of the line Red Soxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ortiz ignores naysayers, returns to form BY HOWARD ULMAN !03PORTS7RITER

Today

Fitter, happier, more productive Papi

BOSTON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; David Ortiz missed nearly half of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disastrous Red Sox season with a heel injury. Then he was sidelined with it throughout spring training and the start of this season. There were whispers that the slugger who had won two World Series titles with Boston was at the end of the line. And Big Papi heard them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are always going to talk trash,â&#x20AC;? the slugging designated hitter said Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re never going to make everyone happy, so what you do is just come in, do your thing and what can those people do about it? In my case, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m done putting attention to what people have to say.â&#x20AC;? Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been saying nice things going into tonightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opener against the St. Louis Cardinals. Ortiz led the Red Sox with a .309 batting average, 30 homers and 103 RBIs this season. In Game 2 of the AL championship series against the Detroit Tigers, he hit a game-tying grand slam in the eighth. Boston won 6-5 on Jarrod Saltalamacchiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s RBI single in the ninth. But Ortiz makes a huge contribution off the field with his bubbly personality and winning smile. Cardinals reliever Randy Choate saw that when he was playing baseball in the Dominican Republic in the offseason. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a pickup softball

game, it was an off day, and we were all hanging out,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember he hit one, literally, 500 feet. It was unbelievable, but he was just there having a good time and hanging out with everybody, being down to earth.â&#x20AC;? The Red Soxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 69-93 record in 2012 was their worst in nearly half a century. Ortiz hit .318 with 23 homers and 60 RBIs in just 90 games. When Ortizâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heel injury persisted in spring training, the fansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; worries continued. But not for the players. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew what was going on,â&#x20AC;? Red Sox outfielder Daniel Nava said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t relay everything to the public, so since we had the inside track I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worried.â&#x20AC;? Now he has a chance for his third championship AP in 10 years.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I would be overwhelmed facing him,â&#x20AC;? starter Joe Kelly said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just see him as another big power left-handed hitter like Adrian Gonzalez. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just another guy who can do damage with guys on base if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not careful.â&#x20AC;? Joaquin Benoit wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t careful. So Ortiz tagged the Tigers closer for the grand slam that turned around the ALCS. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think even without that, you knew that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to have the opportunity to make a huge impact with one swing,â&#x20AC;? he said.

Wacha, Middlebrooks both hail from small Texas town

On the tube TV listings

BY RONALD BLUM !03PORTS7RITER

BOSTON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Michael Wacha remembered passing Will Middlebrooks a few years ago back in Texarkana, the small northeast Texas city where they grew up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of the guys that everyone looked up to,â&#x20AC;? Wacha said Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Like heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s walking by, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Will Middlebrooks there.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty crazy.â&#x20AC;? Texarkana has a population of 36,411, slightly fewer than the crowd that will jam into Fenway Park tonight to watch the old friends face each other when the Boston Red Sox host the St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series opener. Middlebrooks was a senior at Liberty-Eylau High School in 2007 when Wacha was a sophomore at Pleasant Grove High, about a 10-minute drive away. Now the pair will be in the spotlight as Series rivals. Wacha, 22, has been a sensation since joining the Cardinalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rotation in September. The 25-yearold Middlebrooks has seen extensive action at third base for Boston during the last two seasons. Bob Bruggeman, a high school umpire for 34 years and the mayor of Texarkana, remembered umpiring behind the plate for several of Wachaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s starts and talked of his dominance. He said citizens of Texarkana are pumped to watch the two on baseballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest stage, and the town might even arrange a parade. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m hoping that right after the Series is over, both of them will be able to come back to Texarkana to be recognized by the City Council, as well as the citizens within the community,â&#x20AC;? Bruggeman said. Wacha and Middlebrooks played on the same American Legion summer team, coached by the pitcherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, Tom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think anybody really 5 years ago would have ever expected it, especially two guys from the same team playing against each other in World Series,â&#x20AC;? Tom Wacha said.

Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha throws during the first inning against the Dodgers in Game 6 of the NLCS on Friday in St. Louis. Wacha did not give up a run in either of his NLCS starts.

Coming of age (Wachaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rookie season stats) Regular season

  %2! + "" Postseason

  %2! + "" â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Wacha] really didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start throwing hard until his senior year in high school. He wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like a dominant pitcher,â&#x20AC;? Middlebrooks said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was really good because he knew how to pitch and used all three pitches. Once he got to Texas A&M, he got taller and stronger, worked with a lot of good coaches. You look up now and you see 96.â&#x20AC;? After rocketing up the minor league system from rookie ball to Triple-A in less than a year, Wacha made his big league debut on May 30 at Kansas City. He was 2-1 with a 1.72 ERA in five September starts, finishing with a near-historic performance against Washington. He was one out from throwing a no-hitter in his ninth big league start when Ryan Zimmerman hit a chopper just over the 6-foot-6 right-hander.

Shortstop Pete Kozma charged, grabbed the ball with his bare hand and threw just a little wide, pulling Matt Adams off the bag as Zimmerman arrived. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I guess it just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t to be,â&#x20AC;? Wacha said. Wacha has been just as dominant in the postseason, beating Pittsburgh in Game 4 of the division series and Los Angeles in Games 2 and 6 of the league championship series. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s allowed one run in 21 innings, striking out 22, walking four and holding batters to a .114 average. Wacha tried to be calm about the World Series. His parents planned to travel to Boston on Tuesday morning â&#x20AC;&#x201C; first, they drove Monday night to watch daughter Brette play volleyball for Pleasant Grove. They planned to make a 3-hour drive after the match to Dallas, where they would catch a morning flight up north. No matter which team wins, Texarkana will have a champion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge buzz,â&#x20AC;? Wacha said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pretty happy that at least a ring will be coming back there.â&#x20AC;?

But he admits more opportunities could have come from playing for Sulphur Falls, which won the Texas Class 4A title in 2008 and, like EPC, always seems to reload. But the house in Texas is paid for.

Groezinger said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just 100 all the time. I like this weather. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s football weather.â&#x20AC;?

he news from the Bears-Redskins game was disastrous in Chicago, and since the loss, the headline has almost always been about the team losing Jay Cutler for at least 4 weeks to a groin injury. A serious loss and huge disappointment, no doubt. I understand the NFL has become a passing league and a quarterbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game, but as it relates to the Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; chances of remaining competitive and making the playoffs this year, the loss of Lance Briggs for 6 weeks or more is far more damaging and problematic than the loss of Cutler. The offense is not as good with Josh McCown at quarterback, as it is with Cutler. But McCown can be effective, and with Matt Forte, Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery and Martellus Bennett, the offense has plenty of other front-line talents to rely on. Conversely, the Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense was one of the weakest in the league with Briggs, and it was him alone keeping them above water. Briggsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; production as a perennial Pro Bowler will be sorely missed. In addition to his outstanding physical abilities, he has developed an understanding of the Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense, instincts and an innate feel for the game that is matched by no more than a handful of players in the league. For now, it appears Khaseem Greene, an untested rookie who is clearly not ready for prime time, will be asked to fill his shoes. He will not and cannot play with the confidence and ability to read and react of Briggs. But he is a nice athlete who, while he will miss plays because of inexperience, will also make some plays because of his athletic ability and youthful aggression. Greene for Briggs as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Willâ&#x20AC;? backer will hurt, but it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be a death sentence. Where the Bears lose much more is trying to fill Briggsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; role as the quarterback of the defense. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just that Briggs gets the defensive calls from the sidelines and tells his 10 team-

hubARKUSH Shaw Media "EARS analyst. He can be reached at harkush@ shawmedia. com

mates what to do. He is also responsible for getting everyone lined up properly and then making adjustments. As you watch the game, and you see linemen jumping around and linebackers and safeties popping in and out of holes, much if not all of that is being orchestrated by Briggs. Marc Trestman has said he is considering either â&#x20AC;&#x153;Samâ&#x20AC;? backer James Anderson or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mikeâ&#x20AC;? backer Jon Bostic for that role. While most are assuming it will fall to Bostic, my money is on Anderson. Like Greene, Bostic is a rookie who is probably not ready for the starting role he inherited when D.J. Williams went down for the season against the Giants, let alone quarterbacking the defense. He graded out very poorly against the Redskins in his first start. Physically, Bostic might be able, experience wise he clearly is not. Finally, there are the Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; deficiencies at other positions. The fact that Briggs might have been having his best season prior to the injury was helping at least a little to overcome the lack of production from the defensive line and safeties. Asking Greene and Bostic to make plays is one thing. Asking them to cover for others, as well, is folly. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what has to happen for the Bears to stay above water until Briggs returns. Chris Conte and Major Wright absolutely must figure out their responsibilities in coverage. Bostic and Greene have to at least resemble the players Phil Emery hoped they will be when he drafted them. And Julius Peppers, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been missing in action most of the season, absolutely must become Julius Peppers again.

NBA | 2013-14 BULLS PREVIEW

Rising with Rose Return of star makes Bulls a contender BY ANDREW SELIGMAN AP Sports Writer

CHICAGO â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Welcome back, Derrick Rose. Welcome back to title contention, Chicago Bulls. With their superstar point guard back after missing a season following knee surgery, the Bulls are once again taking aim at LeBron James and the Miami Heat for supremacy in the Eastern Conference ... and a shot at the NBA championship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our No. 1 goal is winning the title,â&#x20AC;? Rose said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not worried about anything else. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not worried about what people say about us or whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on on the outside. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just worried about the Bulls and how good we get every day.â&#x20AC;? Of course, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good reason why the Bulls believe they can be No. 1. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because the man who happens to wear that uniform number is back. Without Rose, the Bulls were good enough to win 45 games and advance a round in the playoffs despite a long list of injuries and illnesses down the stretch. Now, their superstar is healthy. The question is: Can Rose regain his MVP form? And how soon? Rose has looked like his old explosive self in the preseason, scoring 22 points against the Detroit Pistons and following that up with 32 against Indiana, but the intensity is about to ratchet up a notch or two. He hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t played a meaningful game since

BY DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

Adam Scott considers it the signature moment of his career, even if it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the putt that made him the first Australian to win the Masters. It was the stage â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the 18th green Sunday afternoon at Augusta National. It was the moment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; tied for the lead, a 20-foot birdie putt across the green to a front left pin, the kind of putt Masters champions make. It was the reaction when it swirled into the cup. The right uppercut. He planted his feet so he could pump both arms, the left one still holding his long putter, and he let loose a spontaneous scream that reverberated Down Under. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Câ&#x20AC;&#x2122;MON AUSSIE!â&#x20AC;? Even more meaningful was the photo. Scott didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see it until a couple of days after he slipped on that green jacket. The photo was sent to him by some Australian caddies, and it touched him the way it did so many others. As Scott lined up the biggest putt of his life, he could not have seen Marc Leishman standing behind him. The putt disappeared into the cup. Scott cried out with the purest joy. And there was Leishman, pumping his right fist to celebrate. Scott was blown away by the photo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I immediately texted Marc after that, because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of my favorite things of the whole experience,â&#x20AC;? Scott said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From the point of that putt going in, the next 2 hours was just a wealth of incredible experience. Your senses canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t handle all that stuff. But then, when I saw that with Leish, now I look back on that as one of my favorite things at Augusta, and an incredible sense of national pride there, and what a top bloke he is for that kind of reaction.â&#x20AC;? Leishman was in the running for a green jacket, too. He was paired with Scott in the final round. They both were 6-under through 12 holes, two shots behind Angel Cabrera, and heading into the pivotal six-hole stretch on the back nine of Augusta National. Disappointment set in when Leishmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approach to the par-5 15th came up just short and into the water. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had just as good a chance as me to win,â&#x20AC;? Scott said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big thing to think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a chance to win the Masters, and then youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re standing on the 18th green and you know you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. But to have the character to stand there and be happy for someone else just says a lot about Marc, for sure.â&#x20AC;?

Adam Scott reacts after his birdie putt on the 18th green during the final round of the Masters last April. Fellow Australian Marc Leishman can be seen in the background, pumping his fist in celebration for his countryman, who became the first Aussie to win a green jacket. Leishman pumping his fist was as spontaneous as Scottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own reaction. He was simply caught up in the rawest of emotions. The only other time he could recall celebrating so publicly was for an Aussie Rules football team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not for another golfer thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the course with me at the same time,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was just hoping he would hole the putt â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for him, for Australian golf, for everything it meant,â&#x20AC;? he added. He first saw the photo the next day when it was posted on Facebook pages. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I obviously knew there were a lot of cameras around. I just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I would be in the photo,â&#x20AC;? Leishman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really captured the moment well of what it meant to him. He doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go off like that often â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ever. I was proud to know that I did that for a fellow Aussie. I was just happy for my friend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a cool photo.â&#x20AC;?

Sterling freshman Kaylee Martin spikes the ball during the Warriors’ game against the Streator Bulldogs on Tuesday at Musgrove Fieldhouse. Martin posted match highs with eight kills, 10 points and six aces, and Sterling won 25-11, 25-20.

‘Ignore the quiet’ Martin, Warriors make their own noise in NIB-12 rout BY TY REYNOLDS treynolds@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 554

STERLING – Even without the intense atmosphere so prevalent at Homer Musgrove Fieldhouse, the Sterling Golden Warriors found a way to keep their intensity Tuesday night. In a quiet gym, freshman Kaylee Martin provided plenty of noise, dominating the opening set of the Golden Warriors’ 25-11, 25-20 victory over Northern Illinois Big 12 West foe Streator. “She’s so huge for us, because it’s another weapon we can use,” setter Jordyn Koett said. “She plays strong at the net, hits the ball so hard, and we trust her totally. We know if we can get her the ball, she’s going to put down a big kill for us. “That helps us stay up emotionally, keep our intensity going, and just ignore the quiet.” Sterling (25-7, 6-3) never trailed in the opening set, and back-to-back Taylor Hendrix kills gave the Warriors an 11-8 lead. Martin had kills on three of the

Star of the match: Kaylee Martin, Sterling, 8 kills, 10 points, 6 aces Key performers: Taylor Hendrix, Sterling, 5 kills; Darien Bardoner, Sterling, 9 points, 8 assists; Mikayla Greenwood, Streator, 4 kills, 1 block Up next: Geneseo at Sterling, 6 p.m. Thursday next five points, then spiked another to put Sterling ahead 17-10. Martin’s sixth ace of the set gave Sterling another sideout at 19-11, and she proceeded to serve out. She had five aces in the final six points, with Kiarra Harris’ kill sprinkled in the mix. “It’s good to stay on top, but we didn’t want to be too cocky,” Martin said. “I know when I mess up, I have great teammates who can help me get my intensity back up, and I love it when I can help do the same for them.” Streator (7-19, 1-8) took its only lead at 5-4 in the second set, then battled back after Koett’s run of five service points (the last one an ace) and two more Martin kills to tie the score at 15.

But a service error, then a hitting error on a Martin serve gave the momentum back to the Warriors. Hendrix’s kill off a Koett set made it 20-17, then the two hooked up for another kill and a 22-18 lead. Another Streator service error gave Sterling a sideout and a 23-20 lead, and Darien Bardoner finished it out at the service line, the final point coming on another Hendrix kill. “When we come ready to play, I truly believe we can hang with any team,” Streator coach Kari Hagerty said. “We know Sterling’s always good, always tough, and I think we were beat tonight before we even took the court. That’s been happening too much this year.”

Sterling had 17 kills to Streator’s 12, 16 assists to the Bulldogs’ 10, and 10 aces to Streator’s one. The Bulldogs had 15 hitting errors and eight service errors; the Warriors had 11 hitting miscues and four service errors. Martin finished with match highs of eight kills, 10 points and six aces, while Hendrix added five kills and an ace. Bardoner served nine points and set eight assists, Koett dished seven assists to go with five points and an ace, and Harris had three kills, four points and two aces. Gabby Sandoval chipped in six digs and a kill. “We’re working really well as a team right now, and that makes it so much fun to be out there with these girls,” Martin said. “When we work hard and play together, that’s when we play well … and I really love to be out there when we’re doing that.” Mikayla Greenwood paced Streator with four kills and a block, while Lexi Black had three kills and a block. Zoe Smith led the defense with 12 digs, and Madison Richardson served six points.

Newman’s Kayci Howell (8) (right) tips the ball over the net while Amboy’s Madeline Ely tries to block Tuesday in Sterling. The Comets won 25-20, 25-14.

The kills put Newman up 8-3, and were part of a five-point run for the Comets while Mariah Staebell held serve. They were also two of de Long’s eight kills in the match. “It felt amazing,” she said. “Every athlete should get that feeling at least once of playing like that. It was so much fun, and I was so proud. “We had a lot of emotion coming into this game. It was Senior Night, and it was Volley for the Cure. We wanted to play really well as a team.” The Comets (18-13, 11-2) achieved that, as they jumped out to commanding leads in both sets and never really let the Clippers get back into it. In the first set, Newman scored 11 of 14 points during one stretch to turn a tie at six into a 17-9 lead.

The Clippers made a brief charge, scoring three points in a row with Newman at match-point to make it 24-20, but Aubree Schmitt put the match away off an assist by Julie Hurd. “That little stretch was the only point that we got going,” Amboy coach Nichole Stenzel said. “We started getting the sets up, and we always play strong in the middle with Hannah [McCoy] and Sydney [Wilhelm]. But overall, we just never got going tonight. “You have to credit Newman. They are at the top of the conference for a reason, and they showed why tonight.” Schmitt had six of her match-high nine kills in the first set. She also had three blocks. Megan Rosengren added seven kills, while Kayci Howell led the way with 12 assists.

“We didn’t come out with any emotion on Saturday at the Eastland tournament,” Schmitt said. “So we knew we had to change that tonight. It was a conference match, and one of our last matches before regionals. “Everyone got involved tonight. It wasn’t one person. We’re not a team that depends on one tall girl in the middle. We try to come at teams from every angle.” All 15 players on the Newman roster entered the match for at least one play. “We wanted to have a chance to do that,” Newman coach Debbi Kelly said. “More importantly, we were passing and setting the ball better than we have the last few times out.” Amboy was led by Wilhelm with six kills, while Kennedy Dinges had nine digs.

The Blackhawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Andrew Shaw (65) and Panthersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Erik Gudbranson (44) fight for the puck during Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game in Sunrise, Fla. Chicago won 3-2 in a shootout.

Blackhawks take down Panthers Sharpâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal clinches shootout win "YTHE!SSOCIATED0RESS

SUNRISE, Fla. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Jonathan Toews and Patrick Sharp both scored in the shootout to lift the Chicago Blackhawks to a 3-2 win over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night. Toews also scored in regulation, Bryan Bickell added a goal and Corey Crawford made 20 saves. Sharp beat goalie Jacob Markstrom on the glove side for the deciding shootout goal. The Blackhawks have won five of their past six games and extended their point streak to six games. Florida has lost four of its last five games and has lost to Chicago four straight times. Dmitry Kulikov and Tomas Fleischmann scored for the Panthers, and Tim Thomas stopped 25 shots before

Star of the game: *ONATHAN4OEWS "LACKHAWKS GOALIN REGULATION SHOOTOUT Up next:"LACKHAWKS AT,IGHTNING PM 4HURSDAY TV:#3. leaving with 2:59 left in the game due to an apparent lower body injury. Markstrom entered the game and made two saves. Thomas was in his third start after missing four games with a groin injury. Trailing 2-0, the Panthers scored two goals in less than 3 minutes in the third. They closed to 2-1 on Fleischmannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal at 9:04. Aleksander Barkov passed across to Fleischmann in the lower right circle. His slap shot beat Crawford on the glove side.

A powerful Golden Warriors squad entered the regional as the No. 1 seed, only to be upset by Rochelle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really talk about that game, but I think everybody remembered what happened,â&#x20AC;? Cebula said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could tell the guys were really nervous, because they were a lot quieter than they usually are on the bus and in the locker room.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It hurt bad,â&#x20AC;? Gallardo said, when asked about last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regional loss. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew how that felt, and we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want that feeling again, so we came out and played our best, and got what we wanted.â&#x20AC;? The only goal of the game started on a defensive miscue by Dixon (1-15-2). Dukesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defenders Brendon McCrory and Taz Kuster each had a chance to stop a bounding ball about 25 yards in front of the Dixon goal, but neither made a play. It ended up going to Gallardo, who had a 1-on-1 opportunity with Dixon goalie Brandon Jagitsch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When the ball went over the playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; heads and I saw two players behind me, I was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to make this. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to make this,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Gallardo said. Jagitsch came out of the goal to try to cut down the angle of the shot, but when Gallardo maneuvered the ball to the goalieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right, there was nothing but green grass between him and the net. He booted the ball in from about 10 yards for his 25th goal this season. The weather and field conditions played a big part in the scoring opportunity. Snow showers earlier in the day and intermittent rain left the field slick, and was a factor in the ball getting past McCrory and Kuster. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the weather, the grass is all slippery,â&#x20AC;? Gallardo said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;the ball is sliding everywhere, players are falling â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one little mistake changes the whole game.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wet ground and the ball is going to skip,â&#x20AC;? Jagitsch said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to go. We got really unlucky on it, the ball skipped toward them and they finished on it.â&#x20AC;? Jagitsch turned away 14 of 15

Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cade Coursey (35) knocks the ball from Dixonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Reid Deets on Tuesday afternoon in a Class 2A Rochelle Regional semifinal. The Golden Warriors won 1-0. shots on goal, and many of his saves were of the spectacular variety. Sterling keeper Jared Fernandez was his equal by recording nine saves, and many of them were deflected at the last instant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first 5 minutes, we had three golden chances that we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t capitalize,â&#x20AC;? Dixon coach Mahmoud Etemadi said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and then again, we had a few more chances. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how it is. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why you never bet on a soccer match.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;You could say we should have finished a couple others, but at the same time, Dixon should have finished a couple, too,â&#x20AC;? Cebula said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just how a game goes. Today, the luck kind of fell our way.â&#x20AC;? The game was a far cry from the teamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; regular-season meetings. Sterling won 4-1 on the road, and then 4-0 at home.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I give Dixon tons of credit,â&#x20AC;? Cebula said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew they were going to play hard, and they played very well.â&#x20AC;? With Jagitsch stonewalling the Warriors for all but one shot, the defense slowing down snipers like Gallardo and Tony Diaz, and the offense providing ample scoring opportunities, Etemadi noted it was his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best game of the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our record is not indicative of the team we have,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was hoping this would be our best game, because this is the one that really matters,â&#x20AC;? Jagitsch said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Regular season doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter at all. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s these games right now. It was definitely by far our best game. We kept them to one goal, and it was a cheap, little goal, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how soccer goes.â&#x20AC;?
