Pizza comes, and pizza goes. For years, fans of Manny’s Pizza have been salivating over rumors that the popular eatery planned to open shop in Sterling. Dreams came close to reality in July 2012, when Manny Castro, owner/operator of Manny’s Pizza in Savanna and Manny’s Too in Fulton, made a down payment on the former Ryan’s Family

Steakhouse, 3900 E. Lincolnway. That deal fell through, though, after Ryan’s parent company, Buffets Inc., filed for bankruptcy that January, and mold was found in the building. But the dream has blazed back to life: Manny’s Pizza & Tacos will open at 11 a.m. Jan. 31 in downtown Sterling, in the site of the short-lived La Mex restaurant at 312 Locust St.

STERLING – The City Council on Monday approved a Sterling man’s petition to extend a special use permit for his proposed sports complex. The request from former Newman baseball coach Larry Ybarra had received unanimous backing from the city’s planning commission on Dec. 19. Ybarra now has the special use zoning designation through Dec. 31. Ybarra has obtained about 22 of the 45 acres he wanted for the $8 million project. He has an option for an additional 45 acres in the same area – at the northwest corner of Oak Grove Avenue and 23rd Street, off Lynn Boulevard. Ybarra said he needed the extension to give him more time to find investors for the privately funded project. Ybarra said he was advised to raise about 35 percent of the money through private investors and finance the rest. During the planning commission meeting in December, Ybarra had outlined some of his tourism projections. EXTENSION CONTINUED ON A2

The forecast

STERLING – Temperatures might not be as brutal as they were during a cold snap earlier this month, but it’s going to be downright uncomfortable outside for the rest of the week in the Sauk Valley. Forecasters say the region is poised to see more frigid weather. The National Weather Service has issued a wind chill advisory for the area until noon today. The forecast high for today is 7 degrees, but with winds between 15 and 25 mph, it will feel like 20 below zero. FREEZE CONTINUED ON A2

It is expected to colder, but not as windy tonight. Wednesday will be a

bit warmer, but the deep freeze is forecast to return Thursday. The National Weather Service predicts a high of 3 and low of minus 12. “It’s not to the extend of

the last outbreak but it’s still bitterly cold,� said Paul Collar, a meteorologist with the NWS. “With these temperatures, you’re going to have issues with exposed

skin and frostbite, but not to the degree of severity of the last outbreak,� he said, describing it as “a normal cold event you’d see in a typical winter.�

Jury awards $910K to teen injured in bike wreck reports that Edwardsville High School student Trevor Brady says he plans to use some of the money for college tuition. He’ll receive the money under a jury verdict last week in Madison County. The trial involved

Free Children’s Orthopedic Clinic

Brady’s lawsuit against Plocher Construction Co., which was building a new office building in Alton and admitted it misplaced a steel beam that Brady hit while bicycling to middle school in March 2010. The accident left Brady

with facial injuries and missing teeth. Brady’s lawyer argued for $3.3 million, while an attorney for Plocher suggested $250,000. Plocher’s attorney declined to publicly discuss the verdict.

“Sanctioned softball tournaments could draw 8,000 to 15,000 people on weekends,� he said. “I feel this is the right thing to do for our area,� Ybarra said. “I envision hotels, restaurants, and increased tax revenues.� The council passed the petition as part of its consent agenda. Before it was approved, Alderman John Stauter voiced some concerns about another extension of the zoning arrangement. “There are residents out there that are against this,� Stauter said. “I would hope he does something with it this year; this is our third go-around with this extension.� “They’ll have their opportunities to express their views on it later,� Alderman Joe Martin said. Some residents have voiced concerns to aldermen about lighting and traffic issues the complex could raise in

the neighborhood. The council originally approved the annexation agreement and R-1 special use permit for the land on April 16, 2012. That agreement called for construction of the complex to begin within one calendar year of the pact. The council extended the agreement for 6 months on May 6, 2013. In other matters Monday, City Administrator Scott Shumard said a road project is planned for this summer near Sterling High School. The work will be done on Fifth Avenue between LeFevre and Miller roads. Included will be street resurfacing, new sidewalks, curb and gutters, crosswalks, additional lighting, and some reconfiguration of parking alignments. “It will be about a $500,000 project,� Shumard said. “The school district will help out with lighting costs, and the rest is all normal city street funding.� Bids for the project are expected to be taken in March.

ROCK FALLS – A public meeting on a federal assessment grant for the Limestone Building will begin at 6:30 p.m. today in City Hall Council Chambers, 603 W. 10th St. The meeting is on the agenda as part of the regular Rock Falls City Council meeting. The city will submit its application for a $200,000 grant from the Environmental Protection Agency to pay for an environmental evaluation of the blighted riverfront property at 201 W. First St. The building has

Rock Falls officials say the Limestone Building along the city’s riverfront is not salvageable and are seeking a federal grant to pay for an environmental assessment that would precede demolition. been vacant for more than 20 years. The assessment grant could then pave the way for additional federal money to pay for demolition costs. City officials have deter-

mined that the manufacturing building, which dates to the 1800s, is not salvageable. The building is not structurally sound, needs asbestos abatement, and could be a public safety hazard if

the fencing and “no trespassing� sign fail to keep people away. The road east of the building, from First Street to the riverfront, has been closed to avoid falling bricks. The city would like the extra space in a hightraffic area for public use along the riverfront. Input from the public will be taken during the public meeting.

DIXON – In an effort to implement more “best practice� systems within the city, the Dixon City Council will consider changing part of its budgeting process, Mayor Jim Burke said. The City Council is Mayor expected, at Jim Burke its regular meeting tonight, to place on file an ordinance that would switch the city from an appropriations system to a budget system for financial planning and management. In an appropriations system, the city allocates the maximum the city could spend for a project, Mayor Jim Burke said, while the budgeting system would allocate what the city expects the cost to be. For example, an appropriations system might say the city can spend up to $150,000 for a project estimated to cost $100,000, while a budgeting system would reflect only the $100,000. The appropriations system can be “a little misleading,� Burke said, because it reflects the most that could be spent for a project.

EAST ST. LOUIS (AP) – A Canadian man has been ordered to spend a decade in U.S. federal prison for his role in a credit card scam. Prosecutors say 57-yearold Paul Price of Toronto defrauded more than $10 million from tens of thou-

sands of U.S. consumers. He was sentenced last week in U.S. District Court in East St. Louis. Price’s ex-wife, 50-yearold Elissa Wells, was sentenced to four years and seven months in prison for her part in the scheme.

State law requires a budget officer for a budgeting system, Burke said, adding that Paula Meyer, the city’s finance director, would fill that position in Dixon. The City Council will also vote to place on file a contract between Dixon Tourism and Midwest Entertainers Inc. The contract is for four musical tributes, Burke said, which will be fundraisers to help build the President Ronald Reagan Lifeguard Statue at Lowell Park. Three of the tributes will be held at the Dixon Theater and one at Dixon High School, Burke said. The musical tributes, which could start in the spring, will feature covers of well-known musicians or bands, Burke said. The statue’s design will be revealed during a news conference at City Hall on Thursday, Feb. 6, Burke said. The City Council is also expected receive audit presentations from the past two fiscal years, confirm appointments to three city boards, and place on file an engineering agreement for the Palmyra Street water main lining project, among other items.

The 4,500-square-foot, family-owned restaurant will feature Manny’s signature pizza and tacos – basically the same menu as its other sites, said Castro’s daughter, Kathy Kingery. There also will be a full-service bar. She and a handful of friends, family and others were hard at work at the new venue Monday, when the sounds of hammering and vacuuming and the scent of fresh paint filled the air. Happily, the warm Mexican dÊcor fits the Manny’s theme, so not much remodeling is needed, Kingery said. Manny’s also is known in its communities for supporting local schools with fundraisers and other events; that tradition will continue here, Kingery said.

2 deaths confirmed in blast at animal feed processing plant OMAHA, Neb. (AP) – An explosion Monday morning that brought down part of an animal feed processing plant in Omaha left at least two people dead and 10 others seriously hurt, authorities said. It was unclear if the death toll would rise as crews continued sifting through the rubble of the International Nutrition plant. Interim Omaha Fire Chief Bernie Kanger said the search was progressing slowly because the structure is unsafe. Kanger wouldn’t pro-

vide an exact figure for the number of dead, but Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine said Monday afternoon that two deaths had been confirmed. Thirty-eight people were working at the plant when the blast happened. In addition to the two people who died and 10 who were hospitalized, seven people were hurt but refused treatment. Officials have not said how many of the 19 others escaped. “We haven’t cleared the building yet because of the significant risk to our people,� Kanger said.

Bae made the comments at what he called a press conference held at his own request. He was under guard during the appearance. It is not unusual for prisoners in North Korea to say after their release that they spoke in similar situations under duress. Bae spoke in Korean during the brief appearance, which was attended by The Associated Press and several other members of the foreign media in Pyongyang. Bae, the longest-serving American detainee in North Korea in recent years, expressed hope that the U.S. government will do its best to win his release. He said he had not been treated badly in confinement.

ELECTION 2014 | ILLINOIS GOVERNOR’S RACE

Hopefuls cool to more marijuana legalization Candidates oppose recreational use of pot being allowed CHICAGO (AP) – Illinois may have a new medical marijuana law on the books, and two other states may have approved the drug’s recreational use, but the candidates for Illinois governor this year don’t support legalizing it outright in their state. Their positions on whether Illinois should extend its four-year medical cannabis pilot project are not so clear-cut,

however, according to the candidates’ answers to a campaign questionnaire sent to them by The Associated Press. Most Republicans said it was too early to decide, but a Republican candidate for lieutenant governor who suffers from multiple sclerosis said it should continue, as did a Democratic challenger to Gov. Pat Quinn. The question of further legalization could arise on the 2014 campaign trail as sick Illinois patients start getting access to marijuana. Political experts say

medical marijuana hasn’t been a strictly partisan issue and there are other signs that Illinois could be willing to address full legalization, including Chicago loosening its punishment for those caught with pot. “This is going to be a one-step-at-a-time issue,� said Alan Gitelson, a Loyola University political science professor. Quinn, who’s seeking re-election, signed a law in August legalizing the use of medical marijuana on a trial basis for severely ill people. State officials must issue regu-

lations before anyone can sign up, though. Quinn, who didn’t respond to the candidate questionnaire, explained at the signing that he liked the law’s tight regulations and was moved to support it by testimony from a sick veteran. When asked about the issue Friday, he said only that the rule-making process will take time. “I have a whole team looking at our law,� he told AP after an event in Chicago. “It’s going to take a little bit of time.� Quinn’s office said Friday that he doesn’t sup-

port legalization of marijuana for recreational use. All other candidates for governor and lieutenant governor told AP that legalized recreational use of marijuana shouldn’t be allowed. Bruce Rauner and state Treasurer Dan Rutherford, both Republicans, simply wrote “No� when asked, “Should marijuana be legalized generally?� Republican state Sens. Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard, who both voted against the medical marijuana legislation, explained

themselves a little more. Dillard said he listens to law enforcement on the issue; a sheriff’s association opposed the medical marijuana bill over concerns of motorists driving under the influence of marijuana. Brady said the medical marijuana bill opens the door to legalization of recreational use. “I am opposed to the general legalization of marijuana or any other controlled substances, which are currently subject to regulation and governance by the federal government,� Brady said.

percent as scheduled in January of 2015. Even if the temporary income tax is extended by lawmakers, researchers say the budget gap would be eliminated by half, standing at $7 billion in 2025. The unfunded pension liability grew as lawmakers shorted or skipped required payments over the years. Regular overspending by the Legislature, even in healthy economic times, caused the deficit to rise. The pension reform law, passed in December, followed years of debate about how to reverse decades of lawmakers and governors shorting or skipping pension contributions. The law, which cuts benefits and raises the retirement age for younger workers but also reduces employees’ contributions and includes a state funding guarantee, would cut the systems’ debt by $21 billion and save $160 billion over 30 years. But it doesn’t take effect until June 1, and several lawsuits have been filed challenging its constitutionality. While Gov. Pat Quinn, who’s running for re-election in November, has claimed pension reform as a legislative victory, his office of management and budget has indicated that some difficult decisions lie ahead. “The state faces a challenge with the expiring revenue to develop a solution that will allow the state to continue to pay down its bills and protect education and public safety services from radical budget cuts,� assistant budget director Abdon Pallasch said.

SPRINGFIELD (AP) – Recent pension reform legislation has been hailed as historic and groundbreaking, but the $160 billion savings plan ultimately won’t make much of a dent in the state’s growing deficits, a report released Tuesday says. While the changes to the state’s major public pension systems will eliminate their unfunded liability over the next 25 years, the state’s deficit will increase to $13 billion during that time, according to the University of Illinois’ Institute for Government and Public Affairs study. Institute researchers had projected a $14 billion deficit – a $1 billion difference – if the state had not implemented pension reform. “The deficit has gotten off the front burner,� Institute Director Chris Mooney said. “And the pension solution, while important, in terms of (its effect on) the budget, it’s a red herring.� Mooney said the Institute’s study was released purposely as campaigns for the 2014 general election begin to heat up. “We want to make sure people know what’s going on, and don’t get complacent,� Mooney said. “This thing (this deficit) just drops like a rock regardless of what we do.� The study, which the institute calls its “Fiscal Futures Project,� made projections by estimating savings from the pension reform plan and assuming that the state’s temporary income tax increase will roll back from the current 5 percent to 3.75

Fewer excuses not to vote T

he Illinois primary will take place 8 weeks from today. Voters will trek to the polls to have their say on which party candidates should advance to the Nov. 4 general election. Primaries were considered an advancement a century ago. They took candidate selection out of the hands of party bigwigs in smoke-filled rooms and put it into the hands of the people. That was the theory, at least. In practice, many primary races are uncontested, so voters may not have much choice in the matter. And the politicians who control the laws that govern primaries don’t always seem to have the voters’ best interests at heart. Two years ago, primary turnout was 17.1 percent in Whiteside County and 25.6 percent

One other thing about showing the upcoming games is that more people would go to the games.

A solid week of horribly negative media coverage of Bruce Rauner was apparently outweighed by lots and lots of television ads, because his numbers are still rising. A new Capitol Fax/ We Ask America poll found that Rauner’s lead increased in the Republican gubernatorial primary since late November. The poll of 1,139 likely Republican primary voters taken Jan. 14 found Rauner getting 34 percent of the vote, with state Sen. Bill Brady at 17 percent, Treasurer Dan Rutherford at 15 percent, and state Sen. Kirk Dillard bringing up the rear at 9 percent. A We Ask America poll taken Nov. 26, after Rauner launched his holiday season TV ad blitz, showed Rauner leading with 26 percent, to Brady’s 18 percent, to Rutherford’s 17 percent, to Dillard’s 10 percent. Those numbers confirmed a Public Policy Polling survey taken just days before, which had Rauner leading with 24 percent. So, essentially, the rest of the pack hasn’t moved at all, while Rauner has added 8 points to his lead. Last week’s poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percent. “Buoyed by a constant stream of quality TV ads, Mr. Rauner continues to gain ground,� said We Ask America pollster Greg Durham. “For now, it does not appear the negative press he’s recently received has resulted in producing any significant speed bumps. This race is far from settled, but the Rauner camp must feel like their plan is working.� As you already know, two issues have buffeted Rauner’s campaign since the holiday season ended. He’s been hammered extensively for a December comment that surfaced in early January of Rauner demanding that the minimum wage be cut by a dollar an hour. LAST WEEK, the media focused on Rauner’s successful effort to clout his suburban daughter into a Chicago public school, followed by a $250,000 contribution to that school. But “earned media� attacks don’t work like they used to, particularly in GOP primaries where a hardcore strand of voters tends to discount the “mainstream media.� Most important, though, is that none of Rauner’s opponents have yet to run a single TV ad. Rauner’s massive TV spending is having a profound impact. Just 25 percent of GOP primary voters say they’re undecided.

There, Rauner scores a whopping 44 percent. He’s also way ahead in suburban Cook County, with 37 percent. And he has 27 percent in downstate, which puts him 8 points ahead of both Brady and Rutherford. Rutherford leads in Chicago, according to the poll, but only by 8 points. SPEAKING OF Rutherford, he reported raising about $400,000 in the fourth quarter last year and had just under $1.4 million in his campaign bank account. When he puts that money on TV, Rutherford could take advantage of any effect that labor unions will have on the primary. If the upcoming multimillion-dollar, labor unionfinanced TV advertising blitz manages to disqualify Rauner in GOP voters’ minds, then Rutherford’s ads could persuade those voters to head his way. Right now, though, Republican primary voters are divided on whom they would choose if Rauner is taken out of the equation. Brady has raised just about zero cash in the last 6 months, and Dillard’s campaign is barely staying afloat. So the poll and common sense indicate that Rutherford could be the most likely candidate to take advantage when the union money starts pouring in against Rauner. But Rauner could then start attacking Rutherford, and anybody else who starts climbing in the polls. It’s gonna get complicated. And that’s very important to remember. The poll shows what it shows on the day it was taken. But voters can express a preference based only on the information they currently have, and there will be a whole lot more info – mostly bad – coming very soon.

MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. | CELEBRATING HIS LIFE

‘There is still so much more to do’ Speeches, marches nationwide honor civil rights leader ATLANTA (AP) – Hundreds of people filled Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta on Monday to remember and reflect on the legacy of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., one of many events across the nation to honor the slain civil rights leader. The service at Ebenezer featured prayers, songs, music and speakers. Across the country, there were also speeches, parades, marches and community service projects to honor King, an Atlanta native. About 50 years ago Monday, King had just appeared on the cover of Time magazine as its Man of the Year, and the nation was on the cusp of passing the Civil Rights Act of 1964. But many of the themes of the civil rights struggle, such a as poverty, violence and voting rights, still resonate with people. Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal said there were not many states that can boast a native son that merits a national holiday before saying, “but we Georgians can.” Deal said this year he would work with state legislators to find an appropriate way to honor the Nobel Peace Prize winner at the Georgia Capitol, which drew a standing ovation from the audience. He did not give any specifics, but civil rights leaders have suggested a statue at the state Capitol. “I think that more than just saying kind thoughts about him we ought to take action ourselves,” said Deal, a Republican. “That’s how we embed truth into our words. I think it’s time for Georgia’s leaders to follow in Dr. King’s footsteps and take action, too.” Deal also touched on criminal justice reforms his administration has tried to make, including drug and mental health courts and communitybased services to keep nonviolent criminals and young people out of prison. Vice President Joe Biden addressed the National Action Network’s MLK Breakfast,

urging them to protect voting rights. “Let me remind you all, it all rests ultimately on the ballot box, so keep the faith, or as my grandmom would say, ‘No, Joey, go spread the faith.’ It’s time to spread it,” Biden said. New York City’s new Mayor Bill de Blasio marked the day by talking about economic inequality, saying it was “closing doors for hard-working people in this city and all over this country.” “We have a city sadly divided between those with opportunity, with the means to fully partake of that opportunity, and

those whose dreams of a better life are being deferred again and again,” he told an audience at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

Martin Luther King Jr. Symposium at the University of Michigan’s Hill Auditorium. Arthur Goff, 38, of Frederick, Md., visited the King Memorial in Washington with his mother, his son, his sister and her children. Goff’s mother, 68-year-old

Loretta Goff, said she was in nursing school in New York when King died in 1968 and remembers it being a traumatic time. Now, she said, everyone is responsible for continuing King’s legacy. “There is still so much more to do,” she said. In Memphis, Tenn., where King was assassinated, an audio recording of an interview with King was played at the National Civil Rights Museum. The recording sheds new light on a phone call President John F. Kennedy made to King’s wife more than 50 years ago. Historians generally agree Kennedy’s phone call to Coretta Scott King expressing concern over her husband’s arrest in October 1960 – and Robert Kennedy’s work behind the scenes to get King released – helped JFK win the White House. The reel-to-reel audiotape was discovered by a man cleaning out his father’s attic.

The father, an insurance salesman, had interviewed King for a book he was writing, but never completed it and stored the recording with other interviews he’d done. At the Muhammad Ali Center in Louisville, Ky., the centered showed King’s “I Have a Dream” speech on the hour. In August, tens of thousands of Americans visited the National Mall to mark the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, which he gave from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Several people who were scheduled to speak at that event but were cut because there was not enough time were invited to speak at Ebenezer. King was born Jan. 15, 1929, and he would’ve been 85 years old. The federal holiday is the third Monday in January and has been celebrated since 1986.

Vets deserve thanks even when it’s unwelcome Dear Abby: I just read the letter from “Twice Bitten in Washington� (Nov. 4), who had thanked veterans for their service to our country and received several negative responses. I’m a retired vet, dying from Agent Orange poisoning. I served two tours in Vietnam, and when I returned from Nam, I was called a baby killer, spat upon and refused taxi service because I was in uniform. America has had a change in attitude since the Vietnam War. Today, many folks appreciate what the military is doing. I have been thanked several times while wearing my Vietnam Veterans hat and it makes me feel great, to the point my eyes water. Tell “Twice Bitten� to continue thanking the

Dear Abby: As a soonto-be-retired career Army officer, I am one of those who feel awkward when people thank us for doing our jobs. The Army was a career I chose, knowing the hardships and what would be asked of me. The military is filled with all kinds of people, and even though I may not always be in the mood for a stranger to approach me when I’m out and about, deep down inside it is refreshing to know that what I do is appreciated. – Phil in Washington State Dear Abby: One day while walking in a cemetery, we saw an elderly gentleman leaning on the arm of his caregiver, and we realized he was looking at a veterans memorial.

Nuclear cutback underway In return, economic sanctions against Iran partially lifted TEHRAN, Iran (AP) – Iran unplugged banks of centrifuges involved in its most sensitive uranium enrichment work on Monday, prompting the United States and European Union to partially lift economic sanctions as a landmark deal aimed at easing concerns over Iran’s nuclear program went into effect. The mutual actions – curbing atomic work in exchange for some sanctions relief – start a 6-month clock for Tehran and the world powers to negotiate a final accord that the Obama administration and its European allies say will be intended to ensure Iran cannot build a nuclear weapon. In the meantime, the interim deal puts limits on Iran’s program – though it continues low levels of uranium enrichment. Tehran denies its nuclear program is intended to produce a bomb. The payoff to Iran is an injection of billions of dollars into its crippled economy over the next six months from the suspen-

In this Jan. 6, 2013, photo, a Free Syrian Army fighter feeds bread to a cat in the old city of Aleppo, Syria. Syria’s uprising was not destined to be quick. Instead, the largely peaceful protest movement that spread across the nation slowly turned into an armed insurgency and eventually a full-blown civil war.

Unexpected Iran invitation could scuttle long-awaited peace talks GENEVA (AP) – A lastminute U.N. invitation for Iran to join this week’s Syria peace talks threw the long-awaited Geneva conference into doubt Monday, with the U.S. saying the offer should be rescinded and the main Westernbacked Syrian opposition group threatening to skip the event entirely. The surprise invitation, extended Sunday by U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, set off a flurry of diplomatic activity to salvage the talks aimed at ending Syria’s ruinous threeyear civil war. The conference is set to begin Wednesday in the Swiss luxury resort city of Montreux, with high-ranking delegations

from the United States, Russia and close to 40 other countries attending. Face-to-face negotiations between the Syrian government and its opponents – the first of the uprising – are to start Friday in Geneva. But the uproar over Iran’s invitation threatened to scuttle the entire event. The Syrian National Coalition issued an ultimatum, saying that Iran must commit publicly within hours to withdraw its “troops and militias� from Syria and abide by a 2012 roadmap to establish a transitional government. Otherwise, the group said, the U.N. should withdraw its invitation for Tehran to take part.

The coalition, which had voted late Saturday to attend after months of rancorous debate, said if those conditions are not met by 7 p.m. GMT Monday, it would not attend the talks. But Hadi Bahra, a member of the coalition’s political committee, said the group was willing to be flexible, to a degree, with its deadline. “If there are serious efforts and commitment, then it will be extended, but for sure not beyond midnight,� he told The Associated Press.

In part a reflection of a thaw between Washington and Tehran, the moves coincidentally occurred on the 33rd anniversary of the end of the Iran hostage crisis. The holding of 52 Americans for 444 days by radical Iranian students that ended Jan. 20, 1981 was followed by more than three decades of U.S.-Iranian enmity that

only began to ease last year with signs that Iran was ready to meet U.S. demands and scale back its nuclear activities. British Foreign Secretary William Hague called the deal “an important milestone� – but not the ultimate goal. “It’s important that other sanctions are maintained and the pressure is maintained for a comprehensive and final settlement on the Iranian nuclear issue,� Hague said.

Time your plays to get home

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

Jean Cocteau, a French poet and novelist who died in 1963, said, “The greatest masterpiece of literature is only a dictionary out of order.” In most deals, the exact order in which you play the tricks does not matter too much. Occasionally, though, you have to follow a specific sequence, or you can be defeated by accurate defense. Which applies in today’s deal? South is in three notrump after East opened one spade. West leads the spade nine and East overtakes with his 10. What should declarer do? Although East has only 11 high-card points, his hand is worth opening. He has length in the majors, an easy two-heart rebid, and

if he finds a fit with his partner, his hand has only seven losers (two spades, two hearts, one diamond and two clubs), which is the normal number for a minimum opening bid

with a five-card suit. South starts with only six top tricks: two spades and four clubs. He might be able to get three more tricks from diamonds, but if he has to lose two diamond tricks, East will establish and run his spade suit to defeat the contract. Instead, South should impale East on the tines of Morton’s Fork. Since East is marked with the missing aces, declarer should play a club to dummy’s jack, then lead the diamond nine. If East wins with his ace, South takes two spades, four diamonds and four clubs for an overtrick. Or if East ducks his ace, declarer wins with his queen and leads the heart king from his hand to collect two spades, two hearts, one diamond and four clubs. © 2014 UFS

Christie administration denies claim

Some spy changes hit snags

Lt. Gov.: Allegations by Hoboken mayor ‘false’ and ‘illogical’ TRENTON, N.J. (AP) – Republican Gov. Chris Christie’s administration on Monday pushed back against a claim that Superstorm Sandy relief funding was withheld from a severely flooded city because its Democratic mayor wouldn’t sign off on a politically connected real estate venture. Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno strongly denied Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer’s claims as “false� and “illogical� on Monday, the day before Christie’s second-term inauguration. And Marc Ferzan, executive director of the Governor’s Office of Recovery and Rebuilding, told reporters in a conference call that Hoboken has been treated no differently than other cities with respect to storm relief funds. Zimmer said on Saturday that Guadagno pulled her aside at a supermarket opening in May and said Hoboken’s storm recovery funds hinged on Zimmer’s approval of a commercial development whose lawyer and lobbyist are close to the governor. On Sunday, Zimmer told CNN the ultimatum was delivered on behalf of the governor, a possible 2016 presidential candidate. Guadagno said the mayor’s description of the conversation “is not only false but is illogical

Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno speaks to a group of volunteers Monday during the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Day of Service in Union Beach, N.J. Guadagno denied allegations by the Hoboken mayor that Superstorm Sandy relief funding was withheld from the city because the mayor wouldn’t sign off on a politically connected real estate venture. and does not withstand scrutiny when all of the facts are examined.� “Any suggestion that Sandy funds were tied to the approval of any project in New Jersey is completely false,� she said. Zimmer met with investigators from the U.S. attorney’s office for several hours on Sunday and gave them journal entries she said were made at the time of the conversation. She also has offered to take a lie-detector test or testify under oath. Ferzan, during his conference call, declined to comment on the “back and forth� regarding

Zimmer’s claims. But he said claims that Hoboken received less than its fair share of disaster aid were a “mischaracterization.� Superstorm Sandy, which was spawned in October 2012 when Hurricane Sandy merged with two other weather systems, killed people in 10 states, but New Jersey and New York were hit the hardest. It’s New Jersey’s worst natural disaster. Ferzan said the state has received more than $14 billion in requests statewide for Hazard Mitigation grants but has only about $300 million to dis-

burse. Christie administration officials have said Hoboken has requested more than $100 million in such funding. “Obviously $300 million versus $14 billion, that’s a big delta,� Ferzan said. He said the state has tried to prioritize its funding and programs to address the “communities most in need� and purposely directed most of the recovery funding toward homeowners, business owners and renters. Federal authorities and state legislators are investigating another scandal involving the Christie administration – allegations that the governor’s top aides orchestrated traffic jams in a northern New Jersey town, Fort Lee, by blocking off lanes to the George Washington Bridge, possibly to punish the town’s Democratic mayor for not endorsing the governor for re-election. Assemblyman John Wisniewski, a former chairman of the state Democratic Party who is leading a legislative probe, said the new allegations may be part of a pattern of abuses of power in the Christie administration and would be treated seriously. Republicans called the investigation partisan and called on Wisniewski to step down. Wisniewski said the investigation by his bipartisan panel would continue. The lieutenant governor did not take questions on Monday.

CHILD PORN CASE

IN BRIEF

Court to decide victim restitution

No stocks or commodities today

Woman seeking $3.4M from man arrested with two images of her WASHINGTON (AP) – A woman whose childhood rapes by her uncle were captured on camera and widely traded on the Internet wants the Supreme Court to make it easier for victims of child pornography to collect money from people who view the brutal images on their computers. The case being argued at the Supreme Court on Wednesday involves a Texas man who pleaded guilty to having images of children engaged in sex acts on his computer. Doyle Randall Paroline is appealing an order holding him responsible for the full amount of loss-

es, nearly $3.4 million, suffered by the woman known as Amy. Of the several hundred incriminating images on Paroline’s computer, just two were of Amy. Advocates for child pornography victims say that holding defendants liable for the entire amount of losses better reflects the ongoing harm that victims suffer each time someone views the images online. The threat of a large financial judgment, coupled with a prison term, also might deter some people from looking at the images in the first place, the advocates say. “The threat that a per-

son in the child pornography market may well bear the entire cost of the harm done to the victim, even if they are a ‘minor player,’ is likely to be a large deterrent, especially when the harm done typically runs into the millions for a victim’s lifetime of care,� said Marci Hamilton, a law professor at Yeshiva University. Hamilton wrote a brief in the case on behalf of the American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children. The money is intended to cover the cost of her psychological care, lost income and attorneys’ fees.

Records storage may have privacy hurdles WASHINGTON (AP) – Several of the surveillance reforms unveiled by President Barack Obama face complications that could muddy the proposals’ lawfulness, slow their momentum in Congress and saddle the government with heavy costs and bureaucracy, legal experts warn. Despite Obama’s plans to shift the National Security Agency’s mass storage of Americans’ bulk phone records elsewhere, telephone companies do not want the responsibility. And the government could face privacy and structural hurdles in relying on any other entity to store the data. Constitutional analysts also question the legal underpinning of Obama’s commitment to setting up a panel of privacy experts to intervene in some proceedings of the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which oversees the NSA’s data mining. Obama has asked Congress to set up such a panel, but senior federal judges already oppose the move. The secret courts now operate with only the government making its case to a federal judge for examining someone’s phone data. Civil libertarians have called for a voice in the room that might offer the judge an opposing view.

Another winter of discontent

T

heo Epstein seldom shows it, but the pressure to turn the Cubs into a perennial winner reveals itself in the more obvious flecks of gray hair on the guy who turned 40 last month. Epstein never admits it, but his patience with some of the job’s idiosyncrasies must be threadbare compared with when he became Cubs president in October 2011. Every now and then, Epstein lets his guard down just long enough to make you wonder if he sensed all along the cultural reconstruction project at Clark and Addison would be more challenging than he ever acknowledged. “One of the things we were smart about was not to put a timetable on it,’’ Epstein said Friday at the start of the Cubs Convention. A clock can’t tick louder on a tenure if nobody starts it. Fans still trust Epstein to do it right in due time because of his Red Sox baseball cachet, no matter how long it takes at a place known for waiting, especially if it means tearing everything down completely before building it back up like nobody ever has. Which brings us to this weekend. Nothing against the Sheraton Chicago, but a more appropriate venue for this Cubs Convention would have been the Shedd Aquarium. HAUGH CONTINUED ON B2

ERIE – For three quarters, the Erie Cardinals lacked intensity on Monday. Then the switch went on for the last 8 minutes. Unfortunately for the Cardinals, it was too little, too late. The Amboy Clippers had already secured a Three Rivers North victory with a score of 36-20. Amboy (14-5, 7-2 Three Rivers North) took advantage of Erie’s rough first quarter and jumped out to the lead. Four different Clippers chipped in a basket apiece to give them a 9-2 lead. Defensively, a 2-3 zone by Amboy forced the Cardinals (15-8, 5-4) into rushing shots. “Well, first of all, they missed some wide-open shots,” Amboy coach Mike McCracken said. “That helps when you play a 2-3 zone.

Champ Bailey battled injuries all season, but played well in Sunday’s AFC Championship game against the Patriots in Denver. Bailey, who is finishing his 15th season, is going to the Super Bowl for the first time, after the Broncos’ win over the Patriots.

and calming leadership. He was hardly tested by Brady at all and finished with three tackles. “I thought yesterday was his best performance of the season,� coach John Fox said Monday. Peyton Manning, who knows a little bit about overcoming injuries and long odds to reach the Super Bowl, said he was “certainly happy for Champ, I know a lot of people are.� “There’s a guy – let’s see, Champ’s 1 year younger than me so he’s in his 15th season – like I said, it’s hard to get to the Super Bowl.

He’s battled through some injuries and has stayed at it and been committed to his rehab.� Bailey started just three games this season, and he finished just one of those, against Jacksonville on Oct. 13. After aggravating his foot injury in his two other starts, he was relegated to slot duty by the time he finally got healthy in mid-December. That changed when Harris got hurt in the Broncos’ playoff win over San Diego, and Bailey started Sunday opposite Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, then moved into the slot on passing downs to thwart the heart of the Patriots’ offense.

Epstein humored by mascot anger HAUGH

CONTINUED FROM B1

What better place in Chicago for an exhibit depicting rock bottom? That’s where the team the Ricketts family bought almost 5 years ago finds itself as fans gather for the organization’s annual midwinter money grab. The only way the Cubs can go from here is up after the worst 2-year stretch in franchise history, followed by an offseason teetering between irrelevance and embarrassment. With at least one top prospect from a suddenly fertile minor league system expected at Wrigley Field around the All-Star break – infielder Javier Baez – perhaps Cubs fans finally can circle progress on the 2014 calendar if young players such as Anthony Rizzo and Starlin Castro bounce back. Even agreeing that the Cubs can sink no lower this season requires a measure of optimism usually in ample supply this time of year. Usually.

MCT

Cubs president Theo Epstein, seen here being introduced in 2011, has stuck to his plan for the organization despite impatience from fans. But this has been anything but a usual stretch for the Cubs, whose convention could have included a session on crisis mismanagement with Clark the Cub running around the ballroom with a microphone, talkshow-host style. Unveiling the mascot last week invited ridicule the Cubs made worse by responding to the sophomoric critiques that were as easy to predict as a firstpitch fastball — and would have been easier to just ignore. Instead, with little else to occupy attention in

a slow news week, the Chicago sports media squeezed every ounce of meaning out of a story that had nothing to do with the team’s commitment to winning. Smirking, Epstein called the uproar a “Clarkophony,’’ a nod to the noise around town that was louder than anything over the Cubs doing so little to change a team coming off 96 losses. That surprised Epstein more than the furor over a furry friend. “If I was a fan of the Chicago Cubs following the offseason, I would have hoped for more

this winter, honestly, I’m not going to hide the ball from you,’’ Epstein said. So why didn’t the Cubs do more than make more than a dozen minor league moves and sign a few nondescript players who made everyone Google? Theoretically, The Plan says one day money will be no object after the Cubs sign a lucrative new television-rights deal (before 2015) and long-awaited Wrigley Field renovations (before Ald. Tom Tunney retires) open more revenue streams. Gleaming state-of-theart facilities in Mesa, Ariz., and the Dominican Republic reportedly are nice enough to give minor leaguers second thoughts once they report to the decaying building on the North Side. Enthusiastic new manager Rick Renteria, hired only because Epstein erred in evaluating Dale Sveum, already left an impression talking to rookies in Spanish and English. “It was a great moment,’’ Epstein said.

BULLS 102, LAKERS 100, OT

Gibson beats buzzer, Lakers Noah flirts with triple-double BY K.C. JOHNSON #HICAGO4RIBUNE

CHICAGO – Kobe Bryant looked resplendent in a dark suit. Derrick Rose made a brief appearance in the Bulls’ locker room pregame – after his rehabilitation exercises, of course. With those stars injured, TNT dropped this game from its national Martin Luther King Jr. Day schedule. But what the Bulls’ 102-100 overtime victory over the Lakers lacked in star power, it tried to make up with late-game drama. Taj Gibson’s lefthanded layup off Mike Dunleavy’s inbounds dropped through as the overtime buzzer sounded, setting off a wild celebration. The Bulls improved to .500 (20-20) for the first time since sitting at 7-7 on Nov. 27. And Joakim Noah did little to dispute Tom Thibodeau’s pregame assessment that the Bulls’ emotional leader is in the best stretch of his career. Noah posted his 13th straight double-digit rebounding game and put his fingerprints all over the regulation finish. D.J. Augustin took care of overtime, in which the Bulls rallied

Noah finished with 17 points, 21 rebounds and six assists. “I think it is his best stretch, in all aspects,� Thibodeau said. “In 2010, he started off like this. Then he got hurt. That’s when he tore the ligament in his thumb. Right now, he’s playing so well on both sides of the ball. And we need him.� Augustin scored a season-high 27 points, including five straight in overtime to cap a 7-0 run that Gibson started with two free throws. Gibson’s 12 points made him one of six Bulls in double figures. “Thibs just said, ‘Go to the basket hard,’� Gibson said in an on-court postgame interview about the final play. Nick Young’s 31 points led the Lakers, and his baseline jumper with 6 seconds left tied the game before Gibson’s heroics.

Luckily for the Clippers, they found an answer to the Cardinals’s rally. That answer was junior Kennedy Dinges. In the remaining 4 minutes of the half, the point guard had seven points, which was capped off with a three-point play. This gave the Clippers the momentum and a 20-11 lead at half. “Last year, as a sophomore, I also started,� Dinges said. “That has helped me to become a leader on the team. Being a point guard has also made that easier.

I got on their case about going hard, and getting a better effort. We laid into them, and they responded positively.� Sophomore Rachel Cobert responded with a pair of buckets to close out the quarter. The Cardinals trailed 26-17 at the end of three quarters. The Cardinals did not turn this intensity into any points, as once again Dinges closed things out for the Clippers. She converted a trio of baskets in the final stanza to solidify the win for Amboy. Rachel Cobert scored Erie’s only three points of the fourth. The final bucket for the Cardinals fell with about 5 minutes left.

Hawks second at Big Northern

All   10-4              

“The 3-pointers that we are shooting are more open, they’re more in rhythm, and a lot more of them are inside-out, as opposed to just passing around the perimeter and shooting,� Mead said. “They’re easier looks, and we’re making them at a much higher percentage than last year.� Dixon has also become more stingy on the defensive end. Mead emphasizes man-toman, and it’s working. The Dukes are allowing 43.8 points per game, down from 59.1 a year ago. “If we have a bad offensive night, then we can make it up with our defense,� Carr said. “It’s something we take a lot of pride in.� Dixon has also improved greatly in two other key areas – rebounding and turnovers. The Dukes are averaging 29.5 boards, and have a +7.1 margin per game. A year ago, Dixon averaged 26.3 rebounds, and faced a -9.2 deficit per game. As for turnovers, they average 11.4 a game, down from 15.8 a year ago. Naysayers point to the Dukes’ schedule. Their three tournaments, at Orion, West Carroll and Plano, feature small-school teams and account for the bulk of their games so far. Still,

Dixon’s Matt Coffey protects the ball during the Dukes’ win over Sterling in December at Lancaster Gym. Dixon hosts Rock Falls today. it’s a similar slate of games from the last 2 seasons, and Dixon was losing those games. Mead apologizes to nobody for the schedule. “Nobody was saying, ‘Man, they can’t even beat 1A teams,’� Mead said. “They were saying, ‘They can’t beat anybody.’ Now that we’re winning, it’s, ‘Well, all they do is beat 1A schools.’ ...I think we needed to learn how to win, and how to play with a lead. Those are things that we had never done. We didn’t have experience doing that. We were always playing

from behind.� Mead got into the West Carroll tournament this year in anticipation of taking on 1A power Eastland in the finals. Inclement weather forced cancellation of the final two rounds of the event. The West Carroll event will be replaced on the 2014-15 Dukes’ schedule by the Sterling MLK tournament, which will include a host of larger schools. “It’s all a process,� Mead said. “I’m excited to see where we’re headed, not only for this season, but for seasons

to come.� For an athlete like Jarrett, the last 6 weeks of the season hold wonder and promise, instead of playing out the string until baseball season arrives. He spoke of seeing banners on the wall of Lancaster Gym, reminders the Dukes haven’t won conference since 1967 and a regional title since 1986. “The past few years, we really haven’t had much respect,� Jarrett said. “This year, we go into every game expecting to win. It’s a new mindset for us, and we like it. This is just the beginning.�
