ROCK FALLS – Police have released the names of the four people involved in shootings in front of Lamb’s Tap early Saturday morning. At 12:41 a.m., Rock Falls Police received a 911 call from the bar at 215 W. Second St. saying that shots had been fired near the bar. When police arrived, Fredrick A. Michels, 34, of

Rock Falls, was found dead on the sidewalk in front of the bar. Michels had been shot multiple times. Two Sterling men, Jason Chapman, 37, and David Adams, 22, were also shot and found on the sidewalk in the 200 block of West Second Street. Both were taken to CGH Medical Center, police said. Chapman was later taken to St. Anthony Medical Center in Rockford, where he remained Sunday, after leaving the intensive care

unit. Adams was released from CGH. The suspect in the shootings, Leonard “Frank” Harris Jr., 40, of Sterling, fled the scene, police said. Sterling Police saw Harris walking north across the First Avenue Bridge into Sterling and pursued him on foot. Harris entered his house in the 300 block of Sixth Avenue. Shortly after, police said they heard a gunshot. NAMES CONTINUED ON A4

Farmer to squealers: Pigs are safe Agencies check on whether hogs are fit to endure cold snap BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 525

For more information

STERLING – Some people are worried that pigs in the farm behind Applebee’s are suffering because of the cold. Today, some of the worst of this winter’s weather is expected, with a high temperature of only minus-12 in Sterling and wind chills that could hit 50 below zero.

Call Norm Koster at 815-973-6929 for details on the pig farm and Julie Hendricks at 815-677-0767 for purchasing the meat. Farmer Norm Koster has heard about the fears for his pigs from a couple of agencies that were contacted by concerned residents, but the

agencies, he said, understand that the hogs are safe. The 120-acre farm along Polo Road, on Sterling’s east end, includes a shelter and a windbreak for the pigs. The animals have straw as bedding in the shelter, said Koster, who planned to add bedding and windbreaks ahead of today’s cold weather. PIGS CONTINUED ON A11

OPINION .............. A6 POLICE ................ A2 SPORTS ...............B1

The Whiteside County Sheriff’s department has announced that because of the severe weather that has hit the area, many roads could be impassable. The National Weather Service has issued a severe weather alert for Sunday evening and Monday morning, warning that winds of more than 30 miles per hour will make blowing snow dangerous across the area. Visibilities will be greatly reduced, especially on rural roads. Wind chills of between 30 and 50 degrees below zero could be life-threatening. The wind chill alert is in effect until midnight Tuesday. The sheriff’s office urges people to suspend all nonemergency travel plans until the weather system passes and roads can re-open. The Illinois Department of Transportation will continue to work on state routes as best as possible, under the circumstances. The Whiteside County Highway Department suspended its operations after dark Sunday.

Illinois grapples with first day of artic cold Authorities warn people to stay indoors, off roads CHICAGO (AP) – Illinois residents braced Sunday for a double whammy of heavy snow and bitterly cold temperatures, with authorities warning people to stay indoors and off the roads. Almost a foot of snow fell in the Chicago area by Sunday evening, while the St. Louis area had about a foot and northern Indiana had at least 8 inches. Central Illinois was bracing for 8 to 10 inches, and southern Michigan could see up to 15 inches. Brisk winds caused whiteout conditions in some areas, and drifting snow forced the closure of some roadways in central Illinois. Illinois Department of Transportation Secretary Ann Schneider was urging

30 YEARS OF EAGLE WATCHING

No opponent for township supervisor – for 20 years

et’s go back to the April township election. Do you remember the race for Coloma Township supervisor? Debra Burke, who has been supervisor since 1981, won that race, as she should have. She had no opponent. In fact, she has gone unopposed for the past two decades. Her last opponent was in 1993, shortly after Bill Clinton became president. These days, Burke has undergone a storm of criticism for her handling of the township’s finances. Until recently, though, the public knew nothing of those problems. Perhaps that’s why she has drawn no opponents all these years. Then again, township elections see little action, anyway. In April’s election, 88 percent of township positions in Whiteside County and 77 percent in Lee County went unopposed. Each county has 22 townships. Only two Whiteside

County townships saw competitive supervisor elections. None saw opposition in Lee County. By no means is this area alone. In southern Illinois’ Saline County, all 13 township supervisor positions had no competition, according to Harrisburg’s Daily Register. I asked Coloma Township Trustee Peggy McFadden, who started with the township earlier this year, why Burke had no opposition all these years. She said Burke was generally perceived as having done a good job, up until Sauk Valley Media started reporting about the township’s financial problems a couple of months ago.

“There’s never been any questions before,� McFadden said. “She’s got a great personality.� Statewide, townships see about 20 percent turnover with each election, according to the Township Officials of Illinois, which lobbies for townships. Bob Anderson, a McHenry County barber who wants to do away with townships, told me last year he wasn’t surprised with the low level of competition in such elections. “Anyone who comes into my barbershop wouldn’t be able to tell you when the next township election is,� Bob Anderson said. “The township people keep to themselves, so they can control it.� David Giuliani is a news editor for Sauk Valley Media.

Whiteside County Tactical Response team members then entered the house and Harris was found dead in his garage from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Harris was a 15-year City of Rock Falls employee. Autopsies were done at CGH Medical Center on Saturday morning, police said. No time frame was given for when the autopsy results might be available. The case remains under investigation, and police would not disclose any further details Sunday. Lamb’s Tap owner Barb Lamb refused to comment, saying police had told her not to speak publicly about the shootings. Later Saturday morning, merchants on West Second Avenue were shocked and saddened by the shootings, but trying to keep things as normal as possible. An employee at another neighborhood bar, who wished to remain anonymous, said she didn’t know about the shootings until she arrived to

work that morning. “If I had known before, I probably wouldn’t have come in today,� she said. “It’s a sad, depressing day.� She said she knew Harris, and she would have never expected him to be involved in something so violent. “It was a real shocker,� she said. “He was a friend of everybody around here, and if you knew him, you thought he was a good guy.� A resident of Rock Falls, she said these things can happen anywhere, and that living in fear is not really living. “This is the way we live our lives,� she said. “Unfortunately, people we know do stupid things. We have just gotten used to losing people.� Ricardo Rangel, owner of Rock Falls Pawn on Second Street, spends much of his time in Rock Falls, but still lives in the Quad Cities. He doesn’t feel as if the violence in the Sauk Valley is any worse than most places. “It’s really a shame that these guys are dead, but unfortunately, this stuff can happen anywhere, and there’s no way to pre-

vent it,� Rangel said. “I think it can seem worse in a small town, because it’s publicized more.� Rangel, who had his two young children in the shop with him, said he still feels safe in his shop during the day and early-evening hours. He believes that an oft-heard saying applies in any town. “You figure nothing good happens in bars after hours,� Rangel said. Katie Christian, who lives near the shooting scene, wasn’t nearly as calm after the latest act of violence in her neighborhood. She said the shootings brought back memories of Nick Sheley and the four people killed in Rock Falls in June of 2008. “These things are even scarier after everything with Nick Sheley,� Christian said. “That didn’t happen far from my house, either.� Christian said she worries about her daughter and hopes that Saturday’s shootings bring public safety changes. “We need more police and security in this area,� she said. “I have a little girl, and I worry about her safety.�

OAKWOOD

IN BRIEF

Boy, Kirk inspire fellow stroke victims

Rutherford releases 2012 tax returns

U.S. senator calls youngster a ‘motivating force’ OAKWOOD (AP) – Jackson Cunningham lurches across the gym during a recess game, racing a fellow sixth-grader toward a doorstop tossed onto the floor. His right side is outstretched, but his left side trails behind – a lingering effect of the paralysis he has endured since suffering a stroke in 2011. The 11-year-old is beaten by an inch but heads back to the sidelines with a smile. It is the same quiet determination he showed when pushing a more famous stroke victim – a U.S. senator – to conquer his own pain and doubts. Jackson and Illinois Republican Mark Kirk have warmed hearts and inspired fellow stroke patients with their oddcouple friendship, an unlikely meeting of two distinct worlds – one full of Legos and zombies, the other focused on Iran sanctions and immigration reform. A visit to Jackson’s school in this small central Illinois town and another to witness his grueling routine at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago demonstrated the spunk behind the boy’s advice urging Kirk not to give up on himself. “I feel just a little lucky, not having something more severe,� said Jackson, who’s been called on to share his own rehab story in hopes of inspiring other kids. The

In this Aug. 8, 2013, photo released by Sen. Mark Kirk’s office, U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk visits with Jackson Cunningham in his office in Washington. Jackson, 11, and Illinois Republican Kirk, both stroke victims, have warmed hearts and inspired fellow stroke patients with their odd-couple friendship, an unlikely meeting of two distinct worlds – one full of Legos and zombies, the other focused on Iran sanctions and immigration reform. National Stroke Association estimates that strokes affect six out of 100,000 children. He says he feels blessed “to be able to talk to a lot more people and give more advice.� Almost a year after Kirk returned to the Senate, Jackson carries on with his own rehabilitation, confronting typical concerns about plateauing and not getting more of his strength and motion back. Jackson and his family live in Oakwood, a town of 1,500 surrounded by farms and fields in Vermilion County along the Indiana border. Father Craig Cunningham works on the assembly line at the local Quaker Oats factory. Mother Erin works in human resourc-

es for auto-parts maker ThyssenKrupp Presta at another nearby factory. Grandparents help shuttle Jackson and sister Jordyn to and from school. Jackson’s elementary school gives a sense of his local celebrity, with bulletin boards that prominently display news clippings of Jackson and Kirk smiling outside the Capitol. Among his memories, Jackson now counts an episode in which Kirk allowed him to sneak into the vice president’s chair in the Senate when security officers weren’t looking. After emerging from the foxhole of shock common for stroke victims, Jackson set an early goal to “get everything back� and began an exhaustive

schedule of physical and occupational therapy. News of Kirk’s own ischemic stroke in February 2012 – caused, like Jackson’s, by a blood clot – hit home with the Cunninghams. At a speech therapy session, Jackson’s grandmother suggested the boy write Kirk a letter. The senator and former naval reservist received thousands of get-well wishes, his staff said, but the note from a young stroke victim near Kirk’s hometown of Champaign stood out. Letters soon were exchanged with increasing rapidity. Jackson updated the senator with milestones. Kirk nicknamed him “Little Cabbage.� Before long, Jackson was invited to meet Kirk at his townhome in the

Chicago suburbs and later in Washington. Kirk calls Jackson a “loyal and motivating force� and says his own road to recovery would have been even more challenging without the improbable friendship. “His ability to stay positive and keep fighting without hesitation is what I keep in mind every day as I continue working,� Kirk said. Kirk kept Jackson in mind as he climbed the Capitol steps last January – a public test of the senator’s endurance as he returned to work. “Congratulations!� Jackson wrote. “I felt very happy and emotional when I saw you on TV. I hope I get to climb those steps someday, too. When I watched you, it reminded me of when I walked to the Lego store when I was a patient at RIC.� The two often talk about zombies, video games and Kirk’s ferocious black cat, Cleopatra. And the unfettered access to a member of the one of the world’s most prestigious political bodies gave a personal history lesson to Jackson, who pulled up his grades and began enjoying school more. The senator has offered his own motivational remarks when the boy became discouraged about his impairments. “Jackson, I expect you’ll do absolutely everything your doctors and [therapists] say,� Kirk wrote in response to the boy’s frustrations with not being able to play baseball. “And if you don’t, you’ll have to testify before the United States Senate.�

What they saw was an abundance of black men, gifted athletes, leading their teams as the signalcalling quarterback – some of those teams, it should be noted, representing schools that not all that long ago would not even let young men of color into the school at all. The presence of a black young man in such a position at one particular school struck a chord

What we thought: 25 years ago for us. His name is Major Harris, and he is the quarterback for the West Virginia Mountaineers, which fell short of its Cinderella objective of becoming the mythical college champion when it lost to Notre Dame. But, no matter. Not when you consider that this school represents a state whose senior United States senator, Robert Byrd, the retiring majority leader of the Senate, was at one time a member of the Ku Klux Klan. That should tell us something. – Jan. 3, 1989

7HENINDOUBT PLEASEDONTCALL Lessons frequently can be learned from any outof-the-ordinary occurrence. Something that catches us off-guard. Something, for instance, like a power outage. Like the ones that seem to be shocking us these days. The latest, of course, occurred Wednesday afternoon when much of Rock Falls and some parts of Sterling were darkened. In such cases, of course, it is understandable that people get frustrated. And, naturally, their first inclination is to call the authorities – i.e., police or fire officials. But that, we suggest, might not be such a good idea. In the first place, during a power outage, these public servants often are as much in the dark as are the residents of the

affected area. They just do not have the kind of information callers want – beyond the alreadyknown fact of the outage itself. The fire department, explained Rock Falls Fire Lt. Tim Lawrence in our Thursday story, has one emergency line and one backup line – which provide enough emergency coverage under normal circumstances. However, when both lines are being used by people who want to know when the electricity is coming back on, the person with a real emergency is at risk. Sure, a person who needs electricity for his or her routine, such as getting ready for work, may consider it an emergency. But so does the person whose respirator has failed, or the parent whose baby’s apnea monitor is no longer working. The lesson, then, should be clear. Any questions? – Jan. 6, 1989

-AKEVOTING LESSOFACHORE Whiteside County Clerk Dan Heusinkveld is doing what he can to make it easier for many – specifically, the elderly and the handicapped – to register and vote. For example, as detailed in our Tuesday front-page story, voter registration facilities have been made more accessible to the handicapped, and deputy

voter registrars now are permitted to come to the homes of voters who are unable to go to a registrar. The aim of all this, of course, is to get more participation in the electoral process right from where it starts: at registration time. And to make it less of a chore. Good for Mr. Heusinkveld. This whole subject of registration is not unique to Whiteside County; indeed, it is expected to get renewed attention in the time Dan between Heusinkveld now and A Morrison the next resident, general Heusinkveld election served as year of Whiteside County clerk 1992.

WASHINGTON – We are all worried about President Obama. If he is to fix our fiscal problems, do something about Syria, Iran, North Korea and the Middle East peace process, and also co-manage the upbringing of two teenage girls, some changes must be made. After covering the White House for years and reading copiously about the problems of previous presidents, I have some suggestions that some of them tried. While golf is the sport of presidents, most Americans do not (cannot afford to) play, and may resent political leaders being seen golfing while the rest of America is standing in lines trying to get health insurance. But several presidents played bocce ball on the White House lawn. Now, this is a sport that House GOP Speaker John Boehner knows well (he is from Ohio). A meeting of minds between our politically divided leaders over bocce ball might work. President Reagan spent more than a year of his 8-year presidency at his beloved California ranch. He never actually moved the seat of power to Rancho del Cielo, but he would have liked to do that. Obama grew up in Hawaii and vacations there every year. Moving the official White House there would take a lot of pressure off Obama because most Americans never think of Hawaii unless they are there on honeymoons or 50th wedding anniversaries. Some tea partiers do not even believe Hawaii is a state. SOME PRESIDENTS started wars, including a pre-emptive war or two. This is not a good idea for Obama, although many Canadians are angry that he hasn’t made a decision on the Keystone pipeline extension. But he could declare an exciting new peace agreement with Burkina Faso, which would include tinkertape parades, elaborate signing ceremonies, and a gala ball with many Hollywood celebrities, even including Republican movie stars who haven’t been inside the White House since the Reagan years. This would give the media days of diversionary delight. With one of Obama’s major goals, immigration reform, still unresolved, he might challenge every member of Congress to adopt a Hispanic student who is a high school valedictorian but whose parents are undocumented. The lawmakers immediately would pass immigration legislation to enable

those new family members to get all the benefits of citizenship, perhaps even free college. Boehner, who often mentions how hard he worked as a youngster alongside his brothers sweeping floors in his father’s bar and understands the difficulty of feeding a lot of mouths, already he is signaling he is interested in doing something about immigration. WHEN PRESIDENT George H.W. Bush wanted to spur the economy, he went on a shopping spree in Maryland and bought socks. While this did not prompt millions of Americans to buy new underwear, it did promote a lot of talk. O b a m a has bought books in Bill Clinton public, but As president, if he went to Clinton every Sears pardoned a notorious store and felon; should purchased Obama automotive pardon gear, such as Edward Snowden? windshield wipers or battery trickle chargers, this would remind Americans that he saved the U.S. auto industry. President Clinton pardoned a notorious felon, which was hugely controversial but sort of made people forget that he took a lot of White House furniture when he left office. Obama could grant whistleblower/traitor Edward Snowden clemency. This would rock the globe. Half the world thinks Snowden rightly disclosed the huge scope of National Security Agency spying. The rest think Snowden betrayed his country and must spend his life in prison, if he ever goes back to the United States. Obama’s action would be so controversial it would consume Fox News and MSNBC. Or Obama could do nothing about Snowden and get the same result. At the least Obama could follow the precedent of recent presidents and declare popular opinion polls fleeting, indicative of nothing and not worth the computer time it takes to tabulate them. Until the polls change in the president’s favor. At that point, the people have spoken. Note to readers – Ann McFeatters has covered the White House and national politics since 1986.

IN THE CLASSROOM

Cost of a new-age curriculum As schools give students computers, price of L.A.’s technology program stands out BY HOWARD BLUME AND STEPHEN CEASAR MCT News Service

T

he Perris Union High School District is paying $344 apiece for a Chromebook for every student. Nearby, Riverside Unified purchased a variety of devices, including the Kindle Fire and iPad Mini, for as low as $150 each. In San Diego Unified, some students are using a $200 tablet. The Los Angeles Unified School District, however, is paying $768 per device for its students, teachers and administrators, making it one of the nation’s most expensive technology programs. The reason: L.A. Unified selected a relatively costly product – a higher-end Apple iPad – and also paid for a new math and English curriculum installed on the tablets. School districts across the country are embarking on technology upgrades, with the latest trend toward providing each student with a computer, such as a tablet or similar device. These school systems are attempting to replace traditional textbooks as much as possible and ensure that all students have access to technology. The devices also are intended to encourage students to be more engaged in learning. Other districts are finding ways to buy or lease computers that are less costly but still aligned to educational goals. Some school systems, for example, are giving younger students a different device from those used in high school. Although many are using iPads, they often are buying less costly models without the additional cost of curriculum software.

MCT News Service

Pinacate Middle School students Raul Curil (left), 13, and Marco Fuentes, 12, work on Chromebook devices producing their electronic newspaper the Puma Press in journalism class in Perris, Calif. “It’s a huge, huge marketplace that is only going to grow,� said Brian Lewis, chief executive of the Washington, D.C.-based International Society for Technology in Education, which focuses on the effective use of technology in schools. “Everyone is trying to figure out the best solution in the constantly changing landscape.� Los Angeles’ $1 billion technology effort stands out in part because California has lower per-student funding than most states. L.A. Unified is using money for the tablets that other school systems are unable or unwilling to tap: voter-approved school construction bonds. L.A. Unified could not name another district using bonds to purchase curriculum. When L.A. is finished, the portion of the bonds that can be spent on technology will

be exhausted, officials said. L.A. schools Superintendent John Deasy said it was important to buy a computer-based curriculum that fully incorporates learning standards recently adopted by California and 44 other states. And he wanted each student to take upcoming tests, linked to those standards, on a tablet that is permanently assigned to them. “Our youth deserve the best we can afford,� Deasy said. The tablet chosen by L.A. Unified – the iPad 4 with 32 gigabytes of storage – has since been discontinued as a retail product, but the price under L.A. Unified’s contract with Apple Inc. was locked in. Other school districts, meanwhile, have found different ways to provide the latest technology to students. “The iPad is the gold

standard,� said Jay McPhail, a Riverside Unified School District senior administrator. “Our problem is we don’t have any gold.� Riverside Unified has purchased about 28,000 computers over 5 years, and about 11,000 devices were provided by students. That district also gauges which device is best for a campus, conducting a survey of parents on what they already own or would buy. The district provides computers for students who don’t supply their own. Perris Union officials described Chromebooks as not only less expensive but a better instructional fit. The Chromebook, for example, is a laptopstyle device with a larger screen, keyboard and multiple input ports that can connect to thumb drives, printers, cameras or CD players. Such fea-

tures are useful for students who are researching online and writing papers, said Superintendent Jonathan Greenberg. “We didn’t pick Chromebooks and try to make it work,� Greenberg said. “The device was picked after we decided what is it we need to do.� Among the many districts opting for tablets, the vast majority have chosen iPads. The iPad’s early dominance has encouraged developers to create education applications for it. There’s also a confidence factor with Apple, officials said. A North Carolina school system that went with a lower-cost tabletmaker suspended its program after too many of the glass screens broke. San Diego Unified is

paying $551 for the iPad 2, a less expensive model, which includes a threeyear warranty but no curriculum. The district is saving more by giving younger students a Lenovo IdeaPad 7-inch tablet, at a cost of about $200 per device. Township High School District 214 in Illinois is paying $429 per iPad 2, $300 less than L.A. Unified is paying for an iPad 4, although the Illinois tablets do not come pre-loaded with curriculum software. That district didn’t want a set curriculum that every teacher had to use. “What we’ve seen is that there isn’t one piece of curriculum that fits the needs of every teacher,� said Keith Bockwoldt,director of technology services.

Single woman losing touch with friends with kids Dear Abby, I’m a 28-year-old woman with a fantastic job, a wonderful boyfriend and many friends whom I love dearly. I’m the only one without a child. Maybe I don’t understand because I’m not a parent myself, but all my friends can talk about is children. Whereas before, we were interested in each other’s lives, I feel like my concerns and accomplishments are being brushed off. An example: I was excited to meet up with a pal to talk about my promotion,

ilies, but I feel they are no longer interested in me. Am I expecting too much because we’re at different points in our lives, or am I a bad friend? I’m growing resentful, and I don’t like it. Any words of wisdom? – Still Relevant in Massachusetts

Dear Still Relevant, You and your friends but the hour-long dinner ARE at different stages was spent mostly teachof life. When you were in ing her child how to walk your teens, you and your between the tables of the friends would talk about restaurant. dating. Then, as you grew I enjoy hearing about older, the conversations my friends and their fam- revolved around college,

jobs and marriage. As people experience the later stages of life, they talk about other things that are going on in their lives – children, grandkids, aging parents and, finally, their own health concerns. You’ll maintain and enjoy these friendships longer if you understand that. In the meantime, try to set some “adult time only� with your friends. Dear Abby, I have been divorced for 14 years and have dated some, but not a lot. I recently signed

up for an online dating service, and here is my dilemma: I have a felony conviction from 25-plus years ago. It did not involve violence, drugs, sex, stealing, etc. It was for a white-collar crime. I received four years of probation, which I served without a hitch. My question is not if I should tell someone about my conviction, but when. If I say anything at our first meeting, I’m pretty sure it will also be the last meeting. At the same time, I don’t want it to appear that I was hiding it from them.

I might add, this is the only time I have ever been in trouble with the law. I’d appreciate your advice on how to deal with this. – Online Dating in Texas Dear Dating, The time to tell someone about your conviction is when the relationship stops being casual. At that point, you should disclose that there is a chapter from your past that you think the person should know about – and it’s one that will never be repeated.

Declarer missed a tough chance

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

This was the deal in last week’s final column. Chen Yuechen from China won the 2013 Richard Freeman Junior Deal of the Year from the International Bridge Press Association for his defense against six no-trump. Chen (West) had guessed to lead his club three. South had taken East’s nine with his ace, played a diamond to dummy’s jack, and run the heart jack. West had won and found the killing return of his remaining diamond. South won in his hand, cashed his club king, and led a spade, planning to finesse dummy’s 10. He needed two dummy entries: one to repeat the heart finesse and the second to cash the 13th heart. But

Chen put up his spade jack, a textbook entry-killing play that defeated the contract. I wonder how many readers noticed that South missed an interesting chance to make

his contract. Before playing a diamond to dummy’s jack, declarer should have cashed his diamond ace. This looks pointless, but not when West started with only two diamonds. When he got in with his heart ace, he would have been endplayed. If West returned a club, South could get four tricks in the suit by playing low from the dummy to collect three spades, one heart, four diamonds and four clubs. Or, if West shifted to a low spade, declarer would win with dummy’s 10 and have his second dummy entry. He would win three spades, three hearts, four diamonds and two clubs. This is called a Dentist’s Coup – extracting the safe exit card(s) from a defender’s hand. © 2014 UFS

Student of the Month Jenna Longan J

enna Longan, 17, a senior at Dixon High School, is the December Student of the Month. She is the daughter of Lynn and Cameron Longan. Her siblings are Holden, 11, and Keenan, 16. Favorite class: My favorite class is Spanish, because Mrs. Fitzanko makes it a lot of fun. I think it is really awesome to be able to learn a new language over 4 years. We learn not only the language but about Spain and Mexico. One of my favorite memories from Spanish class is watching “La Catrina� last year. Top teacher: My top teacher is Mrs. Mauch. She teaches math of all different levels. I had her for one semester of geometry my freshman year, all last year for precalculus, and this year I have her for AP Calculus. She is a wonderful teacher. Her notes are always very detailed, making it easy to study before the test. Extracurriculars: I’ve been on the Dixon tennis team for all 4 years. I’m currently in my fourth year of bowling. I am president of Rachel’s Challenge, an anti-bullying club at DHS that was started last year. I also play clarinet in the Dixon High School band. Also, this year I joined Publications, which writes articles for the Dixini and works on the yearbook. Outside of Dixon High School, I am an active member of my church, Immanuel Lutheran, and its youth group. I also teach fourth- and fifth-grade Sunday School. After graduation: After DHS, I plan to attend Valparaiso University to study meteorology. Favorite singer or musical group: My favorite band has been Lady Antebellum ever since their first song, “Need You Now,� came out. This past summer, I went to one of their concerts in Cedar Rapids. Favorite actor: My

government and how it works at the state level. We voted and campaigned, but we also became a family. Umdenstock was easily the best city at Girls State. I made so many new friends that I keep in touch with through Facebook. They will have my back for as long as I live, and I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t imagine spending that week any other way. Dream job: My dream job is to one day work for The National Weather Service behind the scenes, making the calculations and being out in the weather as it happens. I want to be one of the best meteorologists ever. Trading spaces: If I could pick anywhere, it would most certainly be Ireland. I think that being able to see the scenery in real life would be absolutely breathtaking. It would be so beautiful that I would probably cry. Read this: My favorite books are from â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Hunger Gamesâ&#x20AC;? trilogy by Suzanne Collins, because they kept me on the edge of my seat. The books had action and romance. I could not put them down! Shout out: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to thank Ryan Mackey for being an amazing youth group leader. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s given me opportunities that I could have never imagined having in church and in the real world. This past summer, we went on an Urban Plunge in Omaha. It was one of the best opportunities that I have even been given. We worked with the impoverished, from kids to adults.

Favorite food: My favorite food is definitely Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spaghetti. I could eat it all day, every day for the rest of my life. Biggest fear: My biggest fear is disappointing my parents.

to them at all. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to make someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life miserable to make yourself feel better. What kind of music makes your skin crawl? I like all kinds of music, so I cannot tell you a specific type that makes my skin crawl. Where are some of the places you like to hang out? I like to hang out at the Plum Hollow, because all the employees are super friendly and bowling is a big part of my life during the winter months. Survival guide: What is the key to surviving high school? I think that the key for surviving high school is to get involved. Meeting new people younger and older than you makes school seem a lot less stressful because there will always be someone around to talk to.

Issues with rooftop heating unit led to pipe freezing EVACUATED

CONTINUED FROM A1

After the power was turned off in the building, a venting issue caused elevated carbon monoxide readings, but Bouwens said it was quickly addressed and never presented danger to the residents. Bouwen said the pipe froze because of problems with a rooftop heating unit that regulated heat in areas outside of the residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rooms, including hallways and the meeting room. The individual rooms have separate heating units that were working. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been having issues with that rooftop unit for a while,â&#x20AC;? Bouwen said.

A call for assistance went out to Lincolnland Red Cross of Rock Falls about 4 a.m., according to volunteer Karen Nelson, the disaster action team leader. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had to wait for the inspector and other officials to evaluate the situation, and they decided to evacuate at about 9:30 [a.m.],â&#x20AC;? Nelson said. The evacuation was made difficult by the fact that many of the residents are elderly and disabled. The majority of the residents had family or friends to stay with, Nelson said. About 23 needed transportation assistance and temporary shelter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a long process getting everyone out, but we set up a temporary

A frozen pipe burst in the sprinkler system at Civic Plaza II early Saturday morning, eventually forcing the evacuation of all 63 residents. shelter at the community center before transporting them to the Days Inn in Rock Falls,â&#x20AC;? Bouwens said.

Residents spent about 4 hours at the community center, where they were fed. Several agencies were

involved in getting the residents, wheelchairs, walkers and oxygen tanks to their destinations. In addition to the police and fire departments, the Red Cross provided 6 volunteers with others on standby, Whiteside County Health Department sent 2 nurses, and Firehouse Church of God Ministries helped with transportation and delivered two meals to the Days Inn on Sunday. Firehouse Church Pastor Brian Tribley, who also helped in his firefighting capacity, said Self Help Enterprises helped save the day by providing a wheelchairaccessible bus for transporting the residents the churchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s van couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t load.

Because many of those transported canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drive and are on tight budgets, others have stepped up to help with food. Nelson said the hotel provided free breakfast cards, and donations came in from Caseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Store, Culvers and County Market. Nelson said the owners of the building, who are from the Chicago area, are paying for the hotel stays. She said the building manager told her that if all goes according to plan, residents could be moved back in Wednesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Someone is coming in to work on the boiler and sprinkler system on Tuesday, and if they can fix everything right away, they can come in the next day,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Farmer: Pigs â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;cuddle a lotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; when it is cold PIGS

CONTINUED FROM A1

Pigs, he said, also have an inch of fat on their backs, which protects them from the cold. That layer typically used to be 2 inches, but hogs are leaner these days, because of changes in American diets. Hogs sense the com-

ing of cold weather and double their feed intake a couple of days in preparation, Koster said. The animals also stick close together when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cold. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They cuddle a lot,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They do that at night.â&#x20AC;? In late July, Koster moved in pigs to the 120 acres, where he had

O

raised corn and soybeans for more than 30 years. Some people complained about the smell, given that the farm is just north of East Lincolnway, Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main retail district. But the land is zoned for agriculture, so Koster is allowed to run hogs on the land. That area now has 2,400 pigs, he said.

The hogs get no antibiotics, Koster said, which means they are much leaner than those raised in confinement facilities. Koster plans to target Chicago as a market for the meat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a growing number of people who want to know where their food comes from,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and what goes in it.â&#x20AC;?

A NEW YEARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S RESOLUTION Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll Enjoy! Kerry: U.S. will support MIDDLE EAST

Iraq, but without troops JERUSALEM (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said Sunday that the United States will support Iraqâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fight against al-Qaida-linked militants who have overrun two cities, but wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t send in American troops. Kerry said the militants are trying to destabilize the region and undermine a democratic process in Iraq, and that the U.S. is in contact with tribal leaders in Anbar province who are standing up to the terrorists. But, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;this is a fight that belongs to the Iraqis. That is exactly what the president and the world decided some time ago when we left Iraq, so we are not obviously contemplating returning. We are not contemplating putting boots on the ground. This is their fight. ... We will help them in their fight, but this fight, in the end, they will have to win and I am confident they can.â&#x20AC;? Al-Qaida-linked gunmen have largely taken over the cities of Fallujah and Ramadi in an uprising that has been a blow to the Shiite-led government of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki. Bombings in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, killed at least 20 people Sunday. Anbar, a vast desert area on the borders with Syria and Jordan, was the heartland of the Sunni insurgency that rose up against American troops and the Iraqi government after the 2003 U.S.led invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein. In 2004, insurgents in Fallujah killed four American security contractors, hanging their burned bodies from a bridge. Ramadi and other

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry speaks during a press conference Sunday at the David Citadel Hotel in Jerusalem.

Kerry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are the most dangerous players in that region. Their barbarism against the civilians in Ramadi and Fallujah and against Iraqi security forces is on display for everyone in the world to see.â&#x20AC;?

Kerry said some progress was made in what he described as â&#x20AC;&#x153;very serious, very intensive conversations,â&#x20AC;? but key hurdles are yet to be overcome. His talks with Jordanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s King Abdullah II and Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh covered the peace process, Syria and Iraq. After his short stay in Amman, Kerry flew to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and then took a 30-minute helicopter ride to King Abdullahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desert palace.

CHAMPAIGN – Introducing his players to the 1989 Flyin’ Illini Final Four team on Friday night, Illinois coach John Groce had hoped they would be inspired by how close those teammates remain 25 years later. “They had each other’s back,” Groce said. “Hopefully that was the No. 1 lesson they got out of it.” Illinois displayed that loyalty in a literal way Saturday, when the bench cleared to defend Kendrick Nunn – who Penn State’s D.J. Newbill hit in the head – in the Illini’s 75-55 victory over the Nittany Lions. Newbill ultimately was ejected, and the Illini banded together in another way: They maintained their composure. Illinois led 52-43 when Newbill was ejected with 8 minutes, 38 seconds left to play, and closed the game with a 23-12 run. “Basically just staying together and not let things like that get us out of our heads,” senior forward Jon Ekey said. “We’re there for each other and basically have each other’s backs.” FIGHT CONTINUED ON B5

ROCK FALLS – It took quite a while, but the Newman boys basketball team put itself in a position to take mercy on Mercer County. The Comets overcame a rough start before pulling away for a 75-55 victory against the Golden Eagles on Saturday in the Rock Falls Shootout. It was a similar effort to Friday night, when the Comets struggled against Prophetstown before rallying to win. “What Coach [Ray] Sharp preached in the locker room was we’ve got to play better than we did [Friday] night,” junior guard Trevor Bolin said.

ROCK FALLS – A promising start quickly fizzled. Rock Falls jumped out to a six-point lead in the opening minutes, but stuggled mightily in the second half of a 72-50 loss to Geneseo in the final game of the Rock Falls Shootout on Saturday night at Tabor Gym. The Rockets (4-8) shot out to an 8-2 lead just over 2 minutes into the action with an eightpoint run.

GREEN BAY, Wis. – In the bitter cold on their home turf, the cardiac Packers ran out of fourth-quarter magic. Aaron Rodgers threw for 177 yards and a touchdown, and a depleted defense held its own against the San Francisco 49ers until dual-threat quarterback Colin Kaepernick once again helped end another season in Green Bay in a 23-20 win. “Personally, it’s frustrating not to play your best game. Tough conditions,” Rodgers said. “But defense holds them to 23 points – we should win that game.” Phil Dawson kicked a 33-yard field goal as time expired, and Kaepernick threw for 227 yards

In a back-and-forth fourth quarter, the 49ers (13-4) threw the final punch.

ROCK FALLS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been almost 15 years, but Rock Falls certainly has not forgotten March 13, 1999. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when Brian Vanceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3-pointer with 6 seconds left lifted the Rockets to the Class A state championship. The â&#x20AC;&#x2122;99 champs were honored before Rock Fallsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; game at the Rock Falls Shootout on Saturday night at Tabor Gym. Four starters from the team â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Jorge Acosta, Bryan Boerjan, Jedidiah Johnson, and Herb Martin â&#x20AC;&#x201C; were on hand, as were thenassistant coach Dave Peugh, and then-head coach Thom Sigel. The Rocketsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 45-43 comefrom-behind win over Waterloo Gibault that fateful night at Carver Arena in Peoria is still fresh in the minds of the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;99 champs. Rock Falls trailed Gibault 41-30 with 4:55 to play before coming all the way back for the title. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem like 15 years ago,â&#x20AC;? said Johnson, who was a senior guard for the 31-3 Rockets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing how fast itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gone by. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to have a flashback

once in a while. I sat down [Saturday] and watched some old film. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a pretty neat weekend for us.â&#x20AC;? Sigel, a 1985 Rock Falls grad, is now the Thom coach at Rock Island Sigel &ORMER2OCK High School. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s &ALLSCOACH been there since 2001, and guided the Rocks to the Class 3A state title in 2011. His Rock Island squad defeated Naperville North 62-59 in the game before Rock Fallsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; contest Saturday night. In his six seasons at Rock Falls (1995-2001), Sigel was 127-52. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All those guys are young men now, starting their own familes,â&#x20AC;? Sigel said of the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;99 champs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes me feel a little older. What [winning state] did for the community 15 years ago was something special. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I still have the DVD. Every once in a while Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll pull that out and relive it a little bit.â&#x20AC;? Sigelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son Trey is a now senior at Rock Island.

Radue scored a teamhigh 19 points, and Himmelman 18. Rock Falls missed 6-foot-6 Daegan Wharff against the 6-7 Himmelman, who was 4-for-4 in the first quarter and 7-for10 overall. Wharff is sidelined with an ankle injury but should return next week, according to Rockets coach Brad Bickett. The Maple Leafs went up by seven twice in the early portion of the second quarter. The Rockets sliced the margin to one late in the first half, and trailed 31-28 at the break. Two free throws from Donoho 14 seconds into the second half again made it a onepoint game. From there on, Geneseo outscored Rock Falls 41-20. The Leafs used a 13-3 blitz to make it 44-33 with 4:45 left in the third quarter. Geneseo led 49-40 after three quarters, and outscored the Rockets 23-10 in the fourth quarter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of the way things have been going for us,â&#x20AC;? Bickett said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We missed some opportunities. I thought we let some missed shots affect our defensive effort.â&#x20AC;?

Newman (14-0) led by just one point (25-24) after Mercer Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s C.J. Aldinger cashed in on a free throw with 3 minutes, 31 seconds remaining in the second quarter. But it was all Comets the rest of the way. They closed the half with a 12-0 run, then began the second half with a 12-4 surge, capped by a 3-point play from Nate Terveer. That 24-4 run was accomplished with the starting five on the floor, but that same unit was pulled early in the second quarter for an effort that

WILD-CARD ROUNDUP

Colts rally for improbable win Luck brings Indy back from 28 down; Saints edge Eagles "Y4HE!SSOCIATED0RESS

AP

Packers cornerback Davon House (right) breaks up a pass against 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree during the second half of their NFC wild-card game Sunday at Lambeau Field. The 49ers won 23-20.

Kaepernick outduels Rodgers in deep freeze PACKING

CONTINUED FROM B1

Dawson nailed the winning kick five plays later â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but only after nearly being blocked by edge rusher Davon House. He was whistled for offsides on the play, but the 49ers declined the penalty with the win in hand. The defending NFC champions came away with a huge win in conditions that resembled a meat locker. It was 5 degrees at kickoff, and the winds made it feel like minus-10. San Francisco plays at Carolina next Sunday in the divisional round. The Packers pack up for the offseason Monday. A season full of adversity, which included nearly 2 months without Rodgers because of a left collarbone injury, came to an end. And yet, Green Bay still finished the season 3-1

with dramatic, comefrom-behind wins to nudge its way back into the playoffs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is what playoff football is all about. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been playing these kind of games here the last month. The confidence never wavered,â&#x20AC;? coach Mike McCarthy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite good enough today.â&#x20AC;? Mason Crosbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 24-yard field goal tied it at 20 for the Packers (8-81) with 5:06 left before the 49ersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; final drive. Until then, Rodgers did his best to turn into â&#x20AC;&#x153;Captain Comebackâ&#x20AC;? again. After a slow first quarter, Rodgers finished 17-for-26 with an interception. Kaepernick connected with a spinning Vernon Davis down the seam for a 28-yard touchdown pass with 10:39 left. The score quickly answered John Kuhnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1-yard touchdown run that briefly gave the Packers a four-point lead.

Chuck Pagano couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe his eyes. Andrew Luck couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe his ears. Colts fans couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe the scoreboard, and the Kansas City Chiefs couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe their incredibly bad luck. It seemed completely unfathomable. On a day Luck appeared to be pressing and, at times, as bad as he ever has while putting Indianapolis in a 28-point deficit, the Colts quarterback somehow turned things around. He threw three of his four touchdowns in the second half, scored on a fumble return, and connected with a wideopen T.Y. Hilton on a 64-yard TD pass to give the Colts an improbable 45-44 wild-card victory Saturday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One for the ages,â&#x20AC;? said Pagano, Indianapolisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; coach. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think somebody said that it was the second-largest comeback or whatever in the history of whatever. I guess 21 wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t large enough at half, so we thought weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve give them another seven, you know, just to make it interesting.â&#x20AC;? Actually, rallying from 28 down made the latest of Luckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing comebacks one to remember. Indianapolis (12-5) became only the second playoff team to rally from that big a deficit, according to STATS. Buffalo rallied from 32 points to beat Houston 41-38 in January 1993, though that one required overtime. The teamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 1,049 combined total yards set an NFL postseason record, and their 89 combined points is third on the alltime list. Luck was an incredible mix of good and bad,

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck runs the ball against the Chiefs during the second half of Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game in Indianapolis. The Colts won 45-44. finishing 29-for-45 for 443 yards, the secondhighest yardage total in franchise history for a playoff game. He also matched his career high with three interceptions. Hilton broke franchise playoff records with 13 catches and 224 yards, and also caught two TDs. For Kansas City, it was another brief, miserable postseason appearance. The Chiefs (11-6) finished their remarkable turnaround season with three straight losses, and an eighth straight postseason defeat. Saints 26, Eagles 24:

Shayne Graham, signed by the Saints just over 2 weeks ago, kicked a 32-yard field goal on the final play to give New Orleans its first road playoff victory on Saturday in Philadelphia. Grahamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth field goal sent the Saints (125) to Seattle for next Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s divisional playoff game against the NFCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top seed. The Seahawks

routed the Saints 34-7 during the season. Drew Brees threw for a touchdown, Mark Ingram rushed for 97 yards and another score, and the Saintsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense slowed Chip Kellyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up-tempo offense just enough. New Orleans had been 0-5 in postseason games outside of the Big Easy since entering the league in 1967. Philadelphia wound up 10-7 in Kellyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first year as coach. He guided them from worst to first in the NFC East, but they were only 4-5 at home. Nick Foles hit rookie Zach Ertz for a 3-yard touchdown with 4:54 remaining as Philadelphia rallied from a 13-point deficit to take a one-point lead. But Darren Sproles had a 39-yard kickoff, return and a horsecollar tackle brought New Orleans to the Philadelphia 48. Using mostly runs, the Saints ate up the clock and set up Grahamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winner.

Chargers 27, Bengals 10: San Diego took advan-

tage of Andy Daltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three turnovers in the second half on Sunday, pulling away to a 27-10 win that extended the Bengalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; streak of playoff misery to 23 years and counting. Philip Rivers donned gloves and made accurate throws in the January rain, leading the Chargers (10-7) to their fifth straight win, this one over the last team to knock them off. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll play next Sunday in Denver. It was a shocking finish for the Bengals (11-6), who won the AFC North, went unbeaten at home, and had their top-ranked defense for the playoffs. But, they were outscored 20-0 in the second half. Dalton, 29-for-51 for 334 yards, fumbled and threw two interceptions in the second half, setting up San Diegoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first playoff victory on the road in an open-air stadium since the 1994 AFC title game in Pittsburgh.

Destiny or domination? Tigers attempting to slay one more giant BY RALPH RUSSO !0#OLLEGE&OOTBALL7RITER

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Team Destiny vs. Team Domination. Before the Bowl Championship Series is replaced next year by a playoff, No. 1 Florida State and No. 2 Auburn will meet in its last title game tonight at the Rose Bowl. The Seminoles (13-0) ripped through their schedule on the way to Pasadena, winning each game by at least 14 points behind Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I still think our best game is out there,â&#x20AC;? Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said Sunday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to playing it on Monday night, and our kids are looking forward to the challenge.â&#x20AC;? The turnaround Tigers (12-1) are the most unlikely group ever to reach the BCS championship game. Auburn went from 3-9 to Southeastern Conference champions in their first season under coach Gus Malzahn. It was a wild ride. The Prayer at Jordan-Hare beat Georgia. The Kick-Six beat Alabama. Destiny? Fate? Luck? The Tigers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see it that way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hey, I know weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a team of hard work, I know that,â&#x20AC;? said tailback Tre Mason, a Heisman finalist who has run for 1,621 yards and 22 touchdowns for the No. 1 rushing offense in the

Illinois started the game and the second half with 9-0 runs, but struggled shooting, hitting only 35.7 percent for the game and just 29.6 percent in the first half. There were still some offensive highlights. Ekey broke out of an 0-for-10 slump on 3-pointers, hitting 3 of 6. Point guard Tracy Abrams scored all 12 of his points after halftime, though he shot only 3 of 13. Freshman Malcolm Hill scored eight points in 18 minutes.

Groce said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He practiced really well.â&#x20AC;? The Illini broke open the game after Newbill was ejected. Nunn bumped into Newbill after a layup, and Newbill could be seen on replays elbowing Nunn in the head. Nunn confronted Newbill, and both benches stormed the court before officials and both coaching staffs pushed the players back to their respective benches. A chorus of boos followed Newbill to the

tunnel exiting the court. Penn State coach Pat Chambers said he would review the replay on the flight back to State College, Pa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see it,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;D.J. thought he got bumped. â&#x20AC;Ś He has to keep his composure.

Other than celebrating an undefeated start to Big Ten play, the fans welcomed back the Flyinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Illini, who were honored at halftime. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We understand that we represent them,â&#x20AC;?

Monday, January 6, 2014 Emotional concerns may be challenging, but the more prepared you are to tackle them now, the better off youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be. Put your willpower to work, and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let anyone take advantage of you. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also need to be strict with your finances. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have many professional opportunities today. Deals can be settled, but be very careful when they involve loved ones. A careless mistake on your part could lead to trouble. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let your emotions lead you astray, and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let overindulgence or denial compromise your integrity. Temptation is apparent, and strength of character will be required. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Get organized and make whatever adjustments are necessary. You may find yourself in an inflammatory situation, and if you cannot admit your mistakes, you will meet with roadblocks.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Your emotions will be close to the surface, especially if you are goaded into a heated discussion. You must avoid saying the wrong thing to someone who could

damage your reputation. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -You will have the discipline to get things done, but you will also attract a person who is more of a hindrance than a help. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect others to lend a hand. Just focus on what you can do. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Today, you can find the momentum to get stalled projects up and running again. To make things happen, you may have to adjust a few of your ideas or re-establish yourself with people from your past. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let anyone give you a hard time about work. You will be very serious in your endeavors, and following through with your plans will be key. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Do everything you can to promote your talents. You have much to offer, and today is the perfect time to take center stage. Love is likely on your mind, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let it distract you from your ambitions. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- A trip or a conference you attend will expand your knowledge base. You will make meaningful changes to the way you

communicate that will seriously up your game. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Someone you least suspect may turn on you. Deal with loved ones delicately, or they may react with vitriol. You should avoid being overly serious and instead put your focus on light creative pursuits.
