ALTERNATIVE ENERGY | WIND FARMS

Firm confident, despite lawsuit Construction in Lee, Whiteside counties could start late this year BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 525

DIXON – A Minnesota company could start construction on the proposed Green River wind farm in Whiteside and Lee counties late this year or

in 2015, a company executive said Thursday. A similar timeline exists for the Walnut Ridge farm in northern Bureau County, which Geronimo bought last year, said Tim Polz, the company’s vice president.

“The goal is to have the project contracted out in the first part of 2014,� he said. Last month, the company bought the Green River project from Ireland-based Mainstream Renewable Power, announcing the transaction

Wednesday. The price was not disclosed. The purchase works well with Geronimo’s plan, because the wind farm is near Walnut Ridge, company officials said.

‘‘

We were founded by a farmer. We are conscious of the farming community. We take a very farmer-centric approach.

into the department getting a grain bin rescue tube. The closest one the department could use, thanks to mutual aid agreements, was in Byron – about 40 minutes away. “I couldn’t imagine standing there for 40 minutes watching someone sinking into corn, [telling them] ‘Help is com-

ing,’� he said. “I am the help.� Dimmig started calling around to elevators to see what they used. Some already had the tubes, he said, but others didn’t. Then one day he got a call from Scott Stoller, of Ag Perspective, who wanted to help the department get the rescue

equipment, Dimmig said. The fire department got the equipment – two tubes made up of five panels – over the summer, Dimmig said, and “fortunately� haven’t had to use it yet. The equipment cost about $2,000, he said. RESCUES CONTINUED ON A10

ROCK FALLS – City officials are working on a map for a new mixed use area being proposed to bring more zoning uniformity and prepare for future riverfront development. The zoning changes have been discussed in recent Planning and Zoning Commission meetings, and officials say they are a couple of months away from bringing an ordinance to the council for a vote. The empty riverfront properties have already been designated MU-1 – a first for the city. “This is the first time we had zoned something mixed use,� City Administrator Robbin Blackert said. “Now we are adding parcels on West Second Street and the downtown.� ZONING CONTINUED ON A9

ROCK FALLS – Members of the Sauk Valley Area Chamber of Commerce got a glimpse at the future Thursday night. And that future looks mighty bright. About 200 Chamber members were hosted and entertained during their annual dinner and meeting by local high school juniors and seniors who are part of the Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities program – CEO – through the Whiteside Area Career Center. Most of the 23 students from 12 area high schools who make up the CEO class were greeters, servers, speakers and even pie bakers for the event. They had chosen an allAmerican theme for the evening, which included American flags in the centerpieces, hot dogs and

gle County Board Chairman Kim Gouker is unhappy with our coverage of spending in the Ogle County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;big pictureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; needs to be kept in mind, when seeing this kind of reporting, and realize during an election cycle, like now, creating news, instead of just reporting news, helps to sell newspapers,â&#x20AC;? he wrote in a recent guest column in this newspaper. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But it leaves an improper picture for the taxpayer.â&#x20AC;? Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s get the obvious out of the way first: We sell papers. If we do a good job of keeping our readers informed about their community, we sell more papers. Our readers have busy lives, so most of them donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the time to follow in detail what their public officials are doing with tax money. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where a newspaper

comes in. We help our readers to keep government accountable. Recently, we reported that the Ogle County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department spent thousands on its credit card at restaurants, particularly Breakers Saloon & Eatery in Oregon. We also detailed an off-budget account for which the sheriff has wide discretion to spend, including $4,000 on a contractor to keep the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Facebook page updated. We later wrote a story about how the sheriff whited out portions

of the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s credit card bills that included personal expenditures that he personally reimbursed. I called Gouker about one bill in which an expenditure was whited out. The chairman told me that he would find out what it was about. Not long after, Gouker followed through, telling me that the sheriff had spent $267 at a restaurant in Peoria, where his in-laws live, on New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eve 2011. The sheriff reimbursed the county by sending a check to the credit card company. Gouker then volunteered to me that a county credit card was used to buy telephones for County Coroner Louis Finchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funeral home. The cost was $479, he said. The reimbursement for that expense appeared on the next monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s credit card bill. My co-worker, Matt

Mencarini, who has been reporting on spending by the Ogle County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department, spoke with Finch, who denied knowing the purchase had been made on the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s credit card. He and Larry Callant, the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s geographic information systems coordinator, were away from work and Callant offered to help Finch with a purchase. Finch said the purchase was not for phones, but for computers for his children. Finch said he believed Callant was using his personal card, he said, and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find out it was a county card until Gouker called him about it. Callant didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t return our call. All of this information was reported in the newspaper. Even though Gouker brought up Finchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expense in the first place

Firm has three farms in Minnesota CONFIDENT

Geronimoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s timeline depends on when the company is able to obtain power purchase contracts, Polz said. The company is seeing â&#x20AC;&#x153;significant interestâ&#x20AC;? from potential buyers, including traditional utilities, industrial customers, and government agencies, he said. One hurdle for the project is a lawsuit filed by 60 residents against Lee County and Mainstream. They contend the project will be incompatible with surrounding land uses, decrease their property values, and create noise and shadow flicker.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lawsuits can have an effect of delaying projects,â&#x20AC;? Polz said in a telephone interview. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will litigate the project in due course. We feel we can meet construction timelines, despite the ongoing litigation.â&#x20AC;? In Lee County â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the birthplace of wind farms in Illinois â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Green River project was especially controversial, with residents citing problems with others. During the hearing phase, Lee Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s zoning board met 32 times for a total of 80 hours. As for dealing with neighbors, Polz said, Geronimo has an approach that is different from other companies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were founded by a farmer,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are

conscious of the farming community. We take a very farmer-centric approach.â&#x20AC;? Fo r i ts n ei gh b or s, Geronimo creates nonprofit entities that are turned over to members of the community, including landowners who have turbines on their properties and those who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We fund that entity on an annual basis,â&#x20AC;? Polz said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The participating and nonparticipating landowners choose where that money goes. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really to benefit the community at large.â&#x20AC;? Geronimo has three active wind farms in Minnesota, and it has a number of other projects in

development. The company plans to quadruple its power generation capacity in the next few years. Mainstream has no wind farms in North America. It typically handles the development of projects, then sells them to other companies before construction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mainstream has a demonstrated track record of success in developing projects,â&#x20AC;? Polz said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We felt that the development process was handled well by Mainstream. We were confident stepping in.â&#x20AC;? Mainstream had planned for 53 turbines in Lee County and nine in Whiteside County.

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I appreciated his openness â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he complained in his guest column that we â&#x20AC;&#x153;unfairly includedâ&#x20AC;? the coroner in our story. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The coroner never even had a county credit card, and yet, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s included in the newspaper â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;controversy,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Gouker wrote. Let me get this straight: We called Gouker about the credit card controversy, and in that interview, the chairman himself brings up a personal expenditure attributed to Finch. Yet somehow we are the ones who are unfair. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get it. During a recent County Board committee meeting, Finch told members that the information â&#x20AC;&#x153;was incorrect in every sense of the word.â&#x20AC;? Was he angry with Gouker, or the newspaper, or both? The meeting minutes donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say. (I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reach Finch for comment.) The minutes further

OBITUARIES Joseph E. Heaton DIXON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Joseph Edward Heaton, 94, of Dixon, passed away Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2014, at Serenity Hospice & Home in Oregon after a long and full life.

THE CARTOONISTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S VOICE

Smartphone app to fight campus crime a good idea What we think Students at Sauk Valley Community College now have a new way to report crimes and misconducts to campus security. We encourage them to download the TipNow app and use it.

W

e wrote just last week about the importance of an involved citizenry in the never-ending fight against crime. In that instance, the Dixon Police Department released surveillance photos of two people who illegally accessed a bank account through an ATM machine. Someone out there recognized the duo, a man and a woman, and contacted police. Through that citizen alertness and willingness to become involved, police were able to make a positive identification of both suspects. And this week, a new way for the public to become involved in helping authorities crack down on illegal behavior was announced. In this case, the public are those who attend Sauk Valley Community College in rural Dixon. The SVCC Security Department has joined forces with a company in California that has created a smartphone application that can be used to report â&#x20AC;&#x153;crimes and misconducts.â&#x20AC;? Students can download the TipNow app from any app store, select the Sauk â&#x20AC;&#x153;campus,â&#x20AC;? and then relay information via email, text or voice. Video or photos can also be attached to the tips. The tips go to the appâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creator, Resiligence Inc., which then forwards the information to the SVCC security team (after scrambling the senderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

information to maintain anonymity). The SVCC security team has the ability to contact the tipster for additional information, again without compromising the tipsterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s identity. After 3 days, the tip is purged from the system, which provides further protection. The use of text messages to provide tips about such activities as bullying, hazing, stalking, noisy parties, vandalism, cheating in class, social media abuse, and even school shootings looks to be an important tool to increase security at SVCC. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a tool that young people might be much more likely to use, as they are very comfortable sending text messages, tweets, and so forth. Brian Beckman, supervisor of SVCC Security, was convinced of the appâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s value when he learned how TipNow averted a campus tragedy in California. A man with a gun in his backpack was intercepted because of an anonymous tip. The service costs the college about $2,000 a year. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say that is a worthwhile investment to increase safety. We encourage the students who attend SVCC, and the adults who work there, to download TipNow, become familiar with it, and be prepared to use it. The more eyes and ears that are on watch for â&#x20AC;&#x153;crimes and misconducts,â&#x20AC;? the better.

This past November marked the 90th year of service for Dixonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 540. Over nine decades, and through countless conflicts, the Horace F. Ortt Post has served our local veterans, their families, and the entire greater Dixon community. Our VFW mission has been to be an advocate on behalf of all veterans, ensure that their service is respected, and honor their sacrifices. Like all VFW Posts, we have also striven to promote patriotism and service within our community. To celebrate our 90th anniversary, Dixon VFW Post 540 would like to welcome every member of the public to an open house on Sunday. There will be a pancake breakfast from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., historical displays all morning, and a short speech at 2 p.m. After the speech, there will be an anniversary cake and general open house. We would be honored to have you visit our post, talk to our members, and learn about the VFW. We also absolutely welcome the names of any service members and veterans

Write your own letter to the editor and send it to: letters@saukvalley. com whom we may be in a position to serve. Please, come on out and help us celebrate 90 years of serving veterans and the Dixon community. Note to readers: Tom Bushman is the post commander; Dan Ruckman is the senior vice commander; and Liandro Arellano Jr. is the junior vice commander.

Open meeting Monday will discuss values JAMES JAEGER Sterling

When considering public issues in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s society, we are often faced with a supposed conflict between individual rights and community needs. How are we to resolve those differences when some committed advocates on either side refuse to discuss them rationally, much less try to compromise their respective convictions? There will be a local opportunity to find some common ground

Election letters The maximum length for letters to the editor endorsing candidates or discussing issues regarding the March 18 primary is 200 words. Letter writers may not endorse the same candidate or issue more than once. The submission deadline is noon March 11. as these values are discussed at an open meeting at 7 p.m. Monday in Wesleyan Methodist Church, on the southeast corner of Lynn Boulevard and 16th Avenue in Sterling. Led by myself and sponsored by Sauk Valley Interfaith Peace Action, the meeting will examine and discuss the views of classical political theorists Jeremy Benthem and John Stuart Mill on a utilitarian approach to resolving public issues. Drop into the meeting on Monday evening to take part in the discussion or hear about various ways to resolve our conflicts over competing values.

Show Bustos the door in 2014 election G.G. GARCIA Amboy

Two years ago, for-

mer U.S. Rep. Bobby Schilling saw his constituency carved up by redistricting. His central argument in 2014 should be simply, [Rep.] Bustos is a stooge of the failed presidency of Obama. Dump Bustos. After fighting hard to capture the elusive fighting ground, he must, unlike Romney, see the value of the Hispanic vote. His main thrust should be the hypocrisy of the Democratic Party. They dangled the issue of immigration, like a carrot on a stick, when Obama needed it. He has had 5 years, and all we see is finger-pointing. Ever hear of horse trading? Politics being â&#x20AC;&#x153;the art of the possibleâ&#x20AC;?? Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main accomplishment in this regard was his record deportation of immigrants, a kick-in-thehead to Hispanic voters. Our turn. Hispanic Republicans number 27 percent, not enough to influence policy in that party. But the other party has the lionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s share of our vote. It angers me that bloc vote is ignored by the Democrats. Romney got his just deserts. To quote the former Democratic House Speaker Tip Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neill, â&#x20AC;&#x153;All politics is local.â&#x20AC;? Whiteside County Hispanics should start with Bustos. Show her the door like they did Romney. Time for a change, to echo their leader.

State faces huge deficit, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growing COMMERCIAL-NEWS EDITORIAL BOARD Danville

Members of the Illinois General Assembly will start a new session this month, and discussion about the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growing deficit must take center stage. Lawmakers managed to put together a solu-

tion to the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ballooning pension problem late last year. But resolving that longtime problem provided only a small relief to the growing deficit. Ac c o r d i n g t o T h e Associated Press, Illinois could see its deficit grow to $13 billion during the next 25 years,

unless something is done. There are only two ways to do that: cut spending and/or raise revenue. They cannot ignore the deficit. Doing nothing, which seems to be the Legislatureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite path, only aggravates the problem.

Leaders from both parties have a chance to stand up. Without a solution, the state will continue to slide further behind its Midwestern neighbors, in terms of growth. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s keep our fingers crossed that lawmakers are ready to do some real work in this election-year session.

More than just politics Madisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winter sports blossom with skating rinks, sledding hills BY ANDREA MILLS amills@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 575

adison, Wis., is both a capital and a university town. It has a lively heartbeat, no matter what the season. Parks arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the first place travelers think of in January or February, but Madison has some worth a second. Ice skaters, weather permitting, can glide along at several places. Outdoor skating is available at Elver Park, 1250 McKenna Blvd. Skate rental and concessions are an added attraction there. Other locations include Goodman Park at 37 Van Deusen St.; Hillington Triangle Park at 435 Hillington Way; and Heritage Heights Park at 701 Meadowlark Drive. In all, there are 13 choices. Sledding is something kids love and adults remember fondly or still take part in. One park doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even have to depend upon nature for good sledding snow. Elver Park has snowmaking equipment and lights for after dark. A warming house and concessions are there, too. Six other parks have sledding. Among them are Olbrich Park at 3527 Atwood Ave.; Berkley Park at 1730 Browning Road; and Hiestand Park at 4302 Milwaukee St. Imagine gliding through the snow in the

Odana Hills Golf Course is at 4635 Odana Road and Yahara Hills is at 6701 Highway 12 and 18 East. Five other parks have ski trails, as well. Some special events can be considered. One is the Madison Parks Candlelight Ski from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Feb. 1 at Odana Hills Golf Course. Luminaries and candles will light a 1.5mile loop and a .75-mile loop.

-#4.EWS3ERVICE

LOS ANGELES â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Kevin Hart and Ice Cube comedy â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ride Alongâ&#x20AC;? has little to fear at the box office as â&#x20AC;&#x153;I, Frankenstein,â&#x20AC;? the only new film in wide release, will likely have trouble coming to life. The 3-D horror-action hybrid, starring Aaron Eckhart as Victor Frankensteinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s monster 200 years after its creation, could generate $12 million to $14 million in ticket sales through Sunday in the U.S. and Canada, according to people who have seen pre-release audience surveys, though softer projections put it at $10 million. Lionsgate is distributing the reimagining of Mary Shelleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 19th century novel, and the film was made by Lakeshore Entertainment and Hopscotch Features for about $65 million. Adapted from Kevin Greviouxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s graphic novel by writer/director Stuart Beattie, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I, Frankensteinâ&#x20AC;? takes place in an alternate present-day universe where demons and gargoyles battle for domination, with Dr. Frankensteinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s immortal

Lakeshore is the production company behind the supernatural â&#x20AC;&#x153;Underworldâ&#x20AC;? series, whose latest (2012â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Underworld: Awakeningâ&#x20AC;?) grossed $160 million worldwide. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ride Along,â&#x20AC;? the Universal Pictures buddycomedy about a security guard (Hart) trying to impress his girlfriendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cop brother (Cube), will probably hold the top spot at the box office after arriving Martin Luther King Day week-

end with the biggest January opening ever, not accounting for inflation. If ticket sales fall about 50 percent from last weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3-day take, it would bring in roughly $20 million, though it could do a bit better than that, given the largely positive response from moviegoers and the lack of genre competition. The Mark Walhberg military saga â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lone Survivor,â&#x20AC;? also from Universal, could drop 40 percent from last week-

end for a gross of $13 million, adding to the nearly $80 million it has grossed to date. Open Road Filmsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; animated 3D comedy â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Nut Jobâ&#x20AC;? could challenge â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lone Survivorâ&#x20AC;? for the No. 2 spot, likely holding on strong from last week with little else to draw families trekking to cinemas. Disneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highly successful animated musical â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frozenâ&#x20AC;? has been in release since late November but still grabbed fifth place last weekend.

When I realized that Chad hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gone to them, I asked him why. He said he was following what his father had done â&#x20AC;&#x201C; proposing first and then speaking to the parents. But Chad still hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done it. In fact, he has yet to be around them at all. How do I get my boyfriend to speak to my parents? They are no longer as angry as they were, but they still would like to talk to him. I spend lots of time with Chadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family, but I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get him to even go to lunch with mine.

Unions prepare attack on GOPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rauner Leaders: Candidate markedly anti-labor CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; After months of owning the airwaves and raising millions more than his three GOP opponents in the campaign for Illinois governor, Bruce Raunerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest test in the Republican primary might come not from his rivals but from the well-funded and politically powerful labor unions that traditionally side with Democrats. Officials from several unions

said they are close to launching coordinated attacks against the wealthy businessman, who has made standing up to â&#x20AC;&#x153;union bossesâ&#x20AC;? a theme of his campaign and his prolific advertising. Unions have gotten involved in GOP primaries before, contributing to and endorsing candidates often as a way to hedge their bets. An aggressive campaign against a candidate is less typical, though it comes at a time when a governor could hit unions hard on issues such as the minimum wage and further pension reform.

Union leaders say Rauner is markedly anti-labor compared to the other GOP candidates, state Sens. Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard and Treasurer Dan Rutherford, and knocking him out in the March primary would eliminate an early and serious threat in a year in which much is at stake for working families. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As vigorously and vehemently as [Rauner] has come out against labor, we would be remiss if we just sat back,â&#x20AC;? said Jim Reed, director of government relations for the Illinois Education Association, a major teachers union.

Mayor: past zoning piecemealed ZONING

CONTINUED FROM A1

The goal is that all new riverfront development and existing downtown parcels be designated mixed use. Much of the riverfront is still zoned for various types of business and industrial activity. The new map, once finalized, would open the door to more development opportunities and address some zoning inconsistencies that have been created over the years, Mayor Bill Wescott said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some zoning over the years has been piecemealed, and here we are in 2014 with what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re planning along the riverfront,â&#x20AC;? Wescott said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The current zoning is prohibitive for us and for businesses wanting to come in.â&#x20AC;?

Some of the parcels being proposed for mixed use are near Rock River Tool & Die, 205 E. Third St. The manufacturer had been a division of RB&W Corporation and Reliant Industries. Rock River Tool & Die became an independent business in 1996, and 3 years later, built a new facility and loading dock. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We never did anything with those other parcels next to the riverfront,â&#x20AC;? Wescott said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were part of the old TIF district, which left only RRT&D and Anytime Fitness in the original TIF.â&#x20AC;? It is also proposed that the area near IFH Group be brought in for mixed use. The proposed zoning changes would not create problems for any existing manufacturers in those areas, Blackert said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can still do manufacturing; everyone there will be grandfathered in,â&#x20AC;? she said. This is another important piece of the riverfront development plan, Wescott said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want the riverfront properties to be shovelready,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mixed use opens more doors, whether weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re dealing with refurbishing or new design.â&#x20AC;? Alderman Mark Vandersnick has been working with the proposed zoning changes as a member of the Planning and Zoning Committee. He said the timing is right to make these changes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With a clean slate on the riverfront, we want to get everything in place and get ahead of the game,â&#x20AC;? Vandersnick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then whatever comes to us, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see what fits.â&#x20AC;?

A simultaneous effort is being orchestrated by a longtime Republican operative who said a Rauner nomination could be â&#x20AC;&#x153;a disasterâ&#x20AC;? for the GOP in the general election. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expected to be funded by trade unions as well as other donors, under the name the Republican Fund for Progress and Jobs. While Brady, Dillard and Rutherford have lagged behind Rauner in fundraising, organized labor has the ability to compete with him financially â&#x20AC;&#x201C; buying television advertising and paying for direct mail, telephone calls and other ini-

tiatives. In the 2010 election, private and public-employee unions combined to spend nearly $29 million on Illinois elections, according to the National Institute on Money in State Politics. They also bring an army of members and a well-tuned system for deploying them. The attacks come with some risk, however, because they could solidify in the minds of conservative voters â&#x20AC;&#x201C; those most likely to vote in a Republican primary â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that Rauner is the candidate most likely to take on labor.

IN BRIEF Two men accused in beating death "%.4/.!0 n4WO men are accused of involuntary manslaughter in last weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beating death of a man in the southern Illinois town of Christopher. Franklin County prosecutors also charged 28-year-old Timothy Curwick of West Frankfort and 18-year-old Dustin Mandrell of Christopher with aggravated battery. Each man is jailed on $250,000 bond. !UTHORITIESSAY YEAR old Scott Maceri died Saturday after being beaten,

kicked and choked. WSIL-TV reports that Mandrell was paroled in November after serving four months of a 5-year sentence for forgery and burglary. Online court records donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show whether Curwick and Mandrell have attorneys. Neither man has a listed home telephone number.

Next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s freshmen will pay $100K for 4-year stay CHAMPAIGN (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Instate students enrolling this fall at the University of Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; flagship campus will have to pay more than $100,000 for 4 years on campus. University trustees on Thursday in Chicago approved increases in tuition, housing and other costs at all three campuses. Those increases will push the total expense into six figures for students starting classes next fall at the UrbanaChampaign campus. Current students at the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three campuses wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be affected because Illinois law guarantees that public-university students will pay the same rate of tuition their first 4 years in school. The 1.7 percent boost in tuition, university officials said, is in line with a policy started by trust-

ees 3 years ago to hold increases to the rate of inflation. It also matches last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s increase, which was the smallest since 1994. Increases in recent years had been as high as 9 percent. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s increases, university officials say, are needed to keep up with the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own rising costs for labor and other expenses and to make up for relatively low levels of state funding. The state provides about 30 percent of the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $5.6 billion budget. Tuition makes up just over 19 percent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The proposed increases allow us to hold down student costs, therefore enabling us to improve access and affordability,â&#x20AC;? Christophe Pierre, the universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vice chancellor for academic affairs, told trustees before they voted.

The Age of Anxiety

We live in perilous times. Rogue states with chemical or atomic weapons, fanatical terrorist groups spreading fear and hatred across the globe, and technology that changes too quickly for anyone to keep up with it are all part of our modern world. Our fears are stoked by the modern mediaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 24/7 news cycle and its insistence that something terrible is just around the corner. Even those who are not particularly tuned into the news are anxious; there is a certain anxiety that comes with our modern technology. The noise of the cell phone ringing is like an alarm going off and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often just as startling.The ping of your computer telling you that you have a new message pushes the same anxiety button, and since our phones allow us to be constantly connected we are now living constantly with alarms, buzzers and a sense of time urgency. So, what can [I HS EFSYX EPP SJ XLMW# % ½VWX WXIT QMKLX FI XS GLSSWI more soothing ring tones or just to turn the computer and phone off for extended periods of time.We should also take time out of our busy schedules for solitude and quiet time, a time when we might commune with God or nature and our souls can be at rest. God does not want us to be anxious; be in His presence and trust in the Lord. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Christopher Simon

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.â&#x20AC;? -

McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s: Fewer customers stopping to feed their appetite

Flight cancellations elevate

Oak Brook-based company posts disappointing sales

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a rough start of the year for fliers. A series of winter storms have led airlines to cancel more than 33,000 flights during the first 3 weeks of this year. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more cancellations than in January 2013 and January 2012 combined, according to masFlight, a data and software company specializing in airline operations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been miserable,â&#x20AC;? said John DiScala, who runs the travel advice site JohnnyJet.com and flies around 150,000 miles each year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so few vacant seats, so when they cancel one flight, trying to get onto another flight is next to impossible.â&#x20AC;? Many stranded passengers have had to wait days â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and in a few extreme case up to a week â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to get a seat on a flight out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think travel agents

those tastes by adding options such as chicken wraps and egg whites for its breakfast sandwiches. But without providing specifics, the company said it has seen a â&#x20AC;&#x153;muted responseâ&#x20AC;? to its various promotions. McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is also facing heightened competition from rivals such as Burger King and Wendyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, and all three chains have been aggressively promoting their value menus in a fight for customers. To address concerns the strategy could eat into profit margins, McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recently updated its decade-old Dollar Menu. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dollar Menu & Moreâ&#x20AC;? now includes items that cost between $2 and $5. For the quarter, McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s said global sales slipped 0.1 percent at established locations. In the U.S., the figure fell 1.4 percent. It rose 1 percent in Europe and fell 2.4 percent for the unit encompassing Asia, the Middle East and Africa. The figure is a key metric because it strips out the volatility of newly opened and closed locations. For January, McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expects the figure to be flat overall. It also expects the challenges itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s facing to persist in the year ahead. McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s earned $1.4 billion, or $1.40 per share, for the 3 month-span that ended Dec. 31. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a penny more than Wall Street expected. A year ago, it earned $1.39 billion, or $1.38 per share.

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Fewer customers are stopping in at McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, even as the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest hamburger chain introduces a spate of new items including Mighty Wings. The Oak Brook-based company on Thursday reported disappointing sales for its fourth quarter, hurt by a decline in customer visits at established locations. The drop reflects a longer-term trend, with comparable guest counts down 1.9 percent globally and 1.6 percent in the U.S. for the last year, according to a regulatory filing. In a conference call with analysts, CEO Don Thompson cited ways the company can win back customers, including speedier service, better value offerings and raising â&#x20AC;&#x153;awareness around McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as a kitchen and a restaurantâ&#x20AC;? that prepares high-quality food. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lost some of our customer relevance,â&#x20AC;? Thompson conceded, referring to perceptions about the company in the U.S. After outperforming its rivals for years, McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Corp. is facing a mix of challenges, including a shift in eating habits toward foods people feel are fresher or healthier. The company has been working to better reflect

Series of winter storms to blame for January spike

AP

In this Jan. 5, 2014, photo, Michelle Rivas (left) and Danny Ruiz do their best to get comfortable after being stranded at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport because a snowstorm canceled their flight home to Miami, in St. Louis. A series of winter storms have led airlines to cancel more than 33,000 flights during the first 3 weeks of this year. are starting to look good to many people,â&#x20AC;? DiScala added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At times like this, who wants to be on the phone, literally for hours, trying to get rebooked.â&#x20AC;? One expert suggests passengers may want to take an extra precaution. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one good time to buy travel insurance itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s during

winter,â&#x20AC;? said George Hobica, founder of travel deal site AirfareWatchdog.com. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This winter has been a one-two-three punch so far and there are 8 weeks to go,â&#x20AC;? Hobica

said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It seems like airlines are canceling flights more than ever and sooner than ever at the approach of a storm.â&#x20AC;? The hardest hit cities so far this winter: New York, Washington, D.C., Boston, Chicago and Philadelphia. There are roughly 30,000 daily flights in the United States. On a typical day with no weather disruptions about 200 of those flights are canceled, mostly for mechanical reasons. The canceled trips still represent a small share of the total number of flights â&#x20AC;&#x201C; about 5 percent â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expected to have a major impact on most airlinesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; profits. While airlines lose out on revenue from canceled flights, they also donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to pay for jet fuel and some salaries.

Buyers finding bargain in Impala

At just $15,981, these nicely furnished 2013 Chevy Impalas are a flat steal! STERLING, IL. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the real deal. A Sterling auto dealer specializing in GM program car sales has just flexed its buying power with the purchase of many 2013 Chevrolet Impalas, and has started their price at just $15,981, thousands below Kelley Blue Book, and a far cry from their original sticker price when new. And what a buy. For 2013, GM stepped up their game in power and efficiency with a 302 horsepower direct injected 3.6-liter V6, paired to a

6-speed automatic transmission. The wonderful pairing gives the Impala a spirited performance that it may have lacked in the past, while still providing a respectable 18 city / 30 highway economy rating. But many owners are reporting even better mileage. Amenities include front bucket seats with center console, dualzone climate control, a six-way power driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seat with lumbar, automatic headlamps, fog lamps, tachometer, AM/FM/CD player with an auxiliary jack for your MP3, tiltsteering wheel with audio and cruise controls, remote locks and trunk release and cool 5-spoke alloy wheels. A nifty remote engine start will spoil you in the

winter time, where you can look out your window and start your car while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still in your jammies and have it toastywarm when you get in, or pre-cool the cabin on a sizzling summer day. No worries, because the car wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t budge â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;til it sees your key. Although this feature may seem a bit gimmicky at first, most who have enjoyed this in their last car demand it on their next. Climb behind the wheel and get comfortable in the heavily bolstered, 6-way power bucket seat, which will quickly become your favorite â&#x20AC;&#x153;easy chairâ&#x20AC;?. Wrap your fingers around the soft, leather-wrapped wheel and get ready to enjoy the buttery smooth ride of a magic carpet. And you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to go very far to realize youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in one solid car. On the road, the Impala graciously accepts all orders. And you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help being impressed by thepeaceand quiet inside

its spacious cabin, which the boys at GM went to great lengths to keep road and outside noises secret from its occupants. The Impala has long scored high safety marks, and the addition of StabiliTrak (electronic stability control) takes it up several notches. Hailed as the most important safety feature since the seat belt, this guardian angel-like technology helps keep your family safe by applying power and braking to individual wheels on icy or slippery roads â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a feat no human can perform. This cutting-edge safety feature helps keep the vehicle on a straight path and helps prevent spinouts due to driver overcorrection. Over 80% of all highway fatalities are single-car accidents, and the National Highway Administration estimates that over 10,000 lives would be saved annually if all cars were equipped with this technology. The 2013 Impala also touts 4-wheel disc brakes with ABS and traction control, while its front-wheel drive keeps power planted firmly to the pavement.

Buyers also enjoy the remainder of the Impalaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3YR/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper protection, plus the lionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s share of GMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comprehensive 5YR/100,000-mile power train warranty, whichcoversjustabout everything under the car that moves, nearly every seal and gasket, motor and transmission mounts and even the water pump. This spectacular warranty stays with the car regardless of the number of owners, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no deductible. To add the equivalent protection to the average used car would cost around $2,500. Wow. Today, smaller economy cars are fetching a premium, yet the Impala sacrifices only a few miles per gallon over a Honda Accord or Toyota Camry equipped with a small 4-banger. Before you pay too much for an import job, or spend $10,000$12,000 for a three or four year old, out-of-warranty used car, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well worth your time to check out these exceptionally clean, wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t-let-you-down, getyour-moneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s-worth 2013

Impalaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be dollars ahead. WHERE TO BUY. The Sterling Chevrolet PreOwned Supercenter in Sterling now offers a huge selection of 2013 Impala LTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in a rich variety of colors priced at just $15,981. With a small, friendly and knowledgeable sales staff, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find it refreshing to shop at a dealer who still does business in an honest and upfront way.

NEW RESEARCH

Study: Economic mobility hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed in decades -#4.EWS3ERVICE

As the income gap between the richest and poorest has widened, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become almost accepted as fact that Americans today are finding it harder to move up the economic ladder. But a major new study using millions of anonymous tax records con-

cludes economic mobility has changed little in the past three decades. The research, published Thursday by the National Bureau of Economic Research, does not contradict other studies that have shown increasing income disparity or that Americans enjoy less upward mobil-

ity than their counterparts in other developed Western countries. But the new findings are at odds with statements by President Barack Obama and other politicians suggesting it has become increasingly more difficult for someone in America to move up the income rung.

The study found, for example, that a child born in 1971 to households in the bottom fifth of income distribution had an 8.4 percent chance of reaching the top fifth of earners. That compared to a probability of 9 percent for those born in 1986. Similarly, the study said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Children born to the

highest-income families in 1984 were 74.5 percentage points more likely to attend college than those from the lowest-income families. The corresponding gap for children born in 1993 is 69.2 percentage points, suggesting that if anything mobility may have increased slightly in recent cohorts.â&#x20AC;?

BYRON – Sam Lambrigtsen and the Oregon defense knew where to find Ellie Lehne. The tall junior forward from Byron likes to start at the top of the key before working toward the basket.

We did that tonight, but it was some of the girls that we didn’t expect to score that hit some big shots.” Byron (21-3, 6-1) led most of the night after jumping out to a 7-2 lead.

Evan Davis has gone from a preferred walk-on to a fullfledged member of the Chicago State University baseball team.

He is currently a non-scholarship player, but hopes that will change.

Davis is thrilled to be playing NCAA Division I baseball. “At Sauk Valley, I had some offers to play [NCAA] Division II or NAIA, but I really wanted Division I,” he said. “That’s been my dream since I was a kid. I was contacting coaches, and the NIU coach [Ed Mathey] told me about Chicago State. “His former assistant [Steve Joslyn] is the head coach. That’s when I called Chicago State, and Coach [Joslyn] told me I had a good chance to walk on.

Illinois’ Joseph Bertrand (right) passes the ball in front of Ohio State’s Sam Thompson during the second half Thursday in Columbus, Ohio. Bertrand scored a game-high 19 points on 7-for-10 shooting and added three rebounds, but Ohio State got hot in the second half and beat the Illini 62-55.

Losing skid stretches to 5 Buckeyes’ strong second half sinks Illini on road BY SHANNON RYAN Chicago Tribune

COLUMBUS – A one-point halftime lead on the road against a ranked Big Ten team? “I’d say we can be in business,” Illinois coach John Groce said. Instead, the Illini wasted an opportunity to end their doldrums and fell 62-55 at No. 17 Ohio State, dropping their fifth straight game. The Illini (13-7, 2-5) allowed the Buckeyes to capitalize on turnovers and shoot better than 50 percent in the second half Thursday night at Value City Arena.

Rayvonte Rice had a career first, going scoreless on 0-for-8 shooting. He added four fouls and three turnovers as he pressed to find a cure for his slump.

Since straining an adductor muscle at Northwestern on Jan. 12, Rice has shot just 10-for-43 (23.3 percent) and averaged 7.6 points, which is about 10 points less than his season average entering Thursday’s game. Groce credited Ohio State’s defense from Shannon Scott and Aaron Craft for keeping Rice in check. “I think Ray’s going to pick it up,” teammate Nnanna Egwu said. “He will. He has a mindset of always attacking. He understands the next game is his game.” SKID CONTINUED ON B3

Roger Federer is set to play Rafael Nadal today in the semifinal of the Australian Open. If he wins, it will set up an all-Swiss final with Stanislas Wawrinka.

National intrigue Federer needs to beat Nadal for all-Swiss final BY JOHN PYE !03PORTS7RITER

MELBOURNE, Australia â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The usually diplomatic Roger Federer didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bother concealing his preference for semifinal winners at the Australian Open. He wanted an all-Swiss final, the first ever in a Grand Slam. Eighth-ranked Stanislas Wawrinka held up his end of the bargain with a 6-3, 7-6 (1), 6-7 (3), 7-6 (4) win over Tomas Berdych to reach his first major final. Now the pressure is on the 17-time major winner to complete the match up. The major obstacle in his path: a semifinal against Rafael Nadal. Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Iron Stanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turn to sit back and watch two of the greatest players ever do battle Friday for the right to meet him in Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For sure, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to really, really enjoy,â&#x20AC;? Wawrinka said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to watch the match

tomorrow in front of my TV, maybe with some popcorn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always try to watch when they play, because you can always learn. You can always see the best tennis ever on the tour.â&#x20AC;? The 33rd installment of the Nadal-Federer rivalry â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the 11th in Grand Slams â&#x20AC;&#x201C; should be enthralling viewing. Wawrinka joked that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d prefer a walkover most of all, but likes the idea of a Swiss decider. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My record against Rafa is not really good, and neither against Roger, but for sure to play a Swiss final will be amazing,â&#x20AC;? he said. Federer â&#x20AC;&#x153;is the best player ever. For me, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my first final. To play against Roger would be amazing.â&#x20AC;? Federer is into his 11th consecutive semifinal at Melbourne Park â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he has won five, and gone on to win four finals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This one feels different because of the tougher times Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had in

Slams,â&#x20AC;? said Federer, who lost in the second round at Wimbledon and the fourth round at the U.S. Open last year when he was struggling with muscle injuries and getting to terms with a new, bigger racket. To get this far, he had to beat 2008 finalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the fourth round, and Wimbledon champion Andy Murray in the quarterfinals. He said he was inspired by Wawrinkaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upset quarterfinal win over three-time defending champion Novak Djokovic. Federer watched it on TV and caught himself fist-pumping when Wawrinka won big points. Left-hander Nadal has a commanding 22-10 lead in head-toheads against Federer. His 8-2 lead in Grand Slams includes the 2009 Australian final, and the semifinals here in 2012. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had some epics,â&#x20AC;? Federer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope we can slug it out.â&#x20AC;?

Letter to fanboy owner D

ear Cubs Fanboy Owner (and you know who you are, Tom Ricketts), The option to move the team out of Wrigley Field remains open. You shouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done this on Day One. You shouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve thanked everyone for coming, explained how thrilled you and daddyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s money are to own the team, and then dropped the hammer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; telling the city and the rooftops and everyone else with clout that you need concessions or youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be needing Bekins. But you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, and then you did something worse. You professed your love for Wrigley, and your intention of staying there forever, which is roughly how long itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take to get something renovated there. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve bumped along during your fanboy ownership in trying to make progress on the field, and in the ballpark and neighborhood. Cut it out. Start acting and sounding like a businessman, not a fanboy owner â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and especially not like Michael McCaskey. Yeah, you love Wrigley. A lot of people do. So what? Bill Wirtz loved the Stadium maybe more than everyone else loved that thunderdome, but he wrecked it quicker than his father said no to Bobby Hull, and joined with

STEVE ROSENBLOOM -#4.EWS 3ERVICE SPORTS COLUMNIST (ECANBE REACHED ATSROSENBLOOM TRIBUNECOM

Chairman Reinsdorf to build the United Center. Sentiment makes you a fanboy owner. Ineptitude in getting the renovations started makes you a fanboy owner. You need to be a businessman owner. Cubs fans need you to be a business owner. Businessmen find leverage and use it. You forfeited it immediately, and ever since. But the opportunity to change that by changing venues and cities and even counties is still sitting there for you. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look at it like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re playing the bad guy. Look at it like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re playing the smart guy. Your franchise and your business partners who own rooftops had a dustup at a negotiating session Wednesday. The rooftops reportedly objected to some signs that blocked more views than originally believed. Things got loud, and then things ended. You havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t attacked the Wrigley renovations because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re afraid of

litigation by the rooftop owners. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a legitimate concern. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been too lame or cheap to buy off the rooftops. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been too lame to play the leverage game. But hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the upside of doing nothing with the City Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approval of renovations: Playing the move card remains an option. Not only havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you stuck a shovel in the ground, but you probably havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even put a down payment on any tools or materials. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve accomplished almost none of the ambitious $500 million plan to renovate Wrigley and create the rest of Rickettsville. Which means Splitsville remains an option. See how the mayor likes the hole where his ridiculous amusement tax used to be. See how the rooftops like the view of baseballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most famous ruin, although the quality of play there would improve. Meet with mayors in the area. Order several environmental surveys. Draw up plans for the new Wrigley the way you already did with the existing stadium. And be prepared to act on it. And know that fans will follow. I mean, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re already losing fans because your product stinks. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of the plan, I know, but this stinks even for a franchise built to stink. Your

attendance will drop again this season. The suckers arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t coming to Wrigley just because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wrigley, the way you told dad. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the big joke. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a great springboard. Thank Mayor Emanuel for his time, then tell him youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve decided to move the team because this ongoing garbage isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worth the headache. If this is part of your long-term plan and you needed the obstinate rooftops and wonky City Hall help to set up your exit strategy, then it has been well-played. Congratulations. But if not, then wake up to what remains a battingpractice fastball. If you build it, they will come. Guaranteed. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great business move to dump out of Wrigley as soon as possible and somehow fast-forward construction, because it would provide a distraction while Theo Epsteinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on-field product makes people sick. By the way, when does your marketing department schedule Air Sickness Bag Day? Your team will stink for more years than Epstein or you imagined. You need a smart move. Unlike your team, you need to jump out in front and act like you belong there. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re welcome. Signed, Stevie Sunshine, a pleaser, not a teaser.

NHL | WILD 2, BLACKHAWKS 1

Too little, too late Last-minute goal not enough for Chicago BY CHRIS KUC Chicago Tribune

ST. PAUL, Minn. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; For a team that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly had opponents on lockdown this season, the news that top defenseman Duncan Keith wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be in uniform had to be disheartening. Then, the Blackhawks went out and played like it, as they fell behind early and werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to mount much offensively during a 2-1 loss to the Wild on Thursday night at Xcel Energy Center. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up a ton, but [the Wild] werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t looking to generate much,â&#x20AC;? Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our defense was OK, but just like our whole game was just OK. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think anybody jumped off the table that we could say had a great game.â&#x20AC;? With Norris Trophy candidate Keith sidelined with an illness and missing his first game of the season, the Hawks allowed two firstperiod goals to a Wild team that entered 27th in the NHL in scoring. The Hawks looked sluggish a night after falling to the Red Wings 5-4 in a shootout in a high-paced, end-to-end thriller.

Up next: Jets at "LACKHAWKS PM 3UNDAY#3.!- Jason Pominville and Matt Cooke scored for the Wild, and that was enough for goaltender Darcy Kuemper. The Wildâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third-string netminder allowed only a Patrick Kane goal with 31.2 seconds remaining. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was tough,â&#x20AC;? Hawks defenseman Johnny

Oduya said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They played a good game. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really get in front of the net as much as we wanted to. They play a good defensive style, so they want to keep you on the outside.â&#x20AC;? Antti Raanta suffered the loss for the Hawks in an appearance to give starter Corey Crawford the night off. The rookie settled himself after the first and stymied the Wild

the rest of the way, but in the end fell to 12-2-3 on the season. The Wild raced to the lead after one period, as the Hawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense proved wonky early on for the second consecutive game. The Hawks finally broke through after pulling Raanta for an extra attacker, and Kane found the back of the net from the right circle.

Penn State breaks Big Ten drought Former Dixon, Sauk star Ross helps Chicago State earn win "Y4HE!SSOCIATED0RESS

D.J. Newbill scored 16 points to lead Penn State past Nebraska 58-54 Thursday night at State College, Pa., for its first Big Ten Conference win. John Johnson scored 13 for the Nittany Lions (1010, 1-6), and Brandon Taylor and Tim Frazier each had 11. Terran Petteway paced the Cornhuskers (9-9, 1-5) with 15, and Ray Gallegos added 10. Nebraska led 29-22 at halftime, but Penn State grabbed a 47-45 lead with 4:19 left in the second when Newbill scored on a driving layup. The Huskers replied with a trey by Shavon Shields, but Taylor made a free throw, and Donovan Jack made a putback to pull Penn State within 51-50. Penn Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full-court press forced a turnover, with Frazier diving for the loose ball, then passing it from the sitting position to Newbill, who

threw down a thunderous dunk and was fouled. He made the free throw, and Penn State never trailed again.

Fighting Illini find silver linings in loss SKID

CONTINUED FROM B1

Until this streak, the team never had lost more than three straight games under Groce, who is in his second season. The Illini lost five straight in February 2012 during former coach Bruce Weberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final season before his firing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a proud group,â&#x20AC;? Groce said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get on a streak like we have now at five, I mean, you can go in [the locker room] and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably not a ball of joy in there.â&#x20AC;? Yet there were reasons for the Illini to feel encouraged. Egwu relocated his shooting touch after going scoreless the last two games, scoring 10 points and adding nine

After a four- Joseph Bertrand bounced p o i n t p e r f o r m a n c e back with 19 points, one against Michigan State, off his season high.

But the Illini allowed Ohio State to shoot 54.2 percent in the second half, after holding the Buckeyes to 29.2 percent before halftime for a 25-24 lead at the break. Their live-ball turnovers also did them in. Groceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s message the last 2 days was clear. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Take care of the ball. Take care of the ball. Take care of the ball,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Easier said than done.â&#x20AC;? The Illini had 15 turnovers. They committed four in six possessions as the Buckeyes reversed a 34-31 disadvantage into a 40-34 lead after a 9-0 run. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought it was just a play or two that was going to determine it,â&#x20AC;? Groce said.

Christmas contest answers start

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

Here are the answers to the first two questions in my Christmas Competition. 1. How should South plan the play in six clubs after West leads a trump and East follows suit? South should finish drawing trumps, cash the heart ace, play a diamond to dummy’s queen, ruff the heart jack in his hand, and lead another diamond to the dummy. If the diamonds split 3-2, declarer is playing for an overtrick by taking two spade finesses. So, let’s assume diamonds are 4-1. If East has four diamonds, South cashes the last high diamond, then gives East the lead in diamonds. Now if East has the spade

king, he is endplayed. If he leads away from that king, declarer runs the trick around to dummy’s queen, then plays a spade to his jack. (If East does not have the

spade king, the contract has no chance.) Alternatively, as in the diagram, if West started with four diamonds, South should now lead the spade queen from the board. If the finesse loses, again the contract was unmakable. So let’s have East cover the queen with his king. Declarer wins with his ace and exits with his last diamond to endplay West, who must either lead around into South’s jack-nine of spades or concede a ruff-and-sluff. 2. Suggest an uncontested auction to six clubs. This is tough. It is much easier to end in six diamonds, which makes with this distribution. I accepted anything reasonable. The winners will be given in the March 22 column. © 2014 UFS

The Hawks led twice during the second quarter, at 17-16 and 19-18. Their last lead came at 36-35 on a basket by Lambrigtsen to open the fourth quarter. Byron responded with 3-pointers by Lehne and Whipple to pull ahead by five. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It seemed like we had some momentum,â&#x20AC;? Lambrigtsen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But every time weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d get ahead, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d make a couple 3-pointers.â&#x20AC;? Oregon fought back, pulling within three points at 43-40 after a three-point play by Lambrigtsen. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the Swanson show started. She hustled to the basket for a rebound on the next possession and made the putback while being fouled. She missed the free throw. Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kimmie Janke made a nice move and finished her drive with a short jumper on the next possession. Janke and Kelsey Pudlas were a big part the post defense that kept Lehne and freshman Bailey Burrows in check. Byron also held only a 32-30 rebounding advantage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all heart for those girls on the boards,â&#x20AC;? Oregon coach Kristy Eckhardt said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We come out

most games with the disadvantage under the hoop, but they fight for position and hustle for the ball.â&#x20AC;? Jankeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shot proved to be the last field goal for the Hawks. On the next possession, Whipple found Swanson open in the corner. The junior guard nailed the shot to give Byron the 48-42 lead.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Keelyn can make those shots,â&#x20AC;? Byron coach Eric Yerly said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to shoot from out there that much, because we have so many other girls that can shoot. She made the big plays when we needed them in the fourth quarter.â&#x20AC;? After an empty possession by Oregon, Swanson was fouled. She hit both shots to make it a threepossession game at 50-42. Byron went 5-for-6 from the free-throw line the rest of the way to ice the game. Lambrigtsen finished with a game-high 24 points, and she also had six rebounds and three steals. Emy Wright added 11 points, but no other Hawk scored more than three points. Lehne had 18 points, and Whipple had 12. Swanson had nine rebounds to go with her seven points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You always know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a tough game against Oregon,â&#x20AC;? Yerly said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sammy [Lambrigtsen] is such a good player. In this conference, every team has a very good player. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a challenge to stop them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It comes down to making a couple big shots and making free throws at the end. We did that tonight.â&#x20AC;?

SUPER BOWL XLVIII | BRONCOS

Winter weather welcome Manning, Broncos unconcerned about cold Super Bowl BY ARNIE STAPLETON !00RO&OOTBALL7RITER

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Peyton Manning found no need to dunk his right hand in a bucket of ice water Thursday â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it was 9 degrees when the Broncos returned to their practice field for the first time since clinching a spot in next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anytime you can have ... a situation that you can simulate during practice that might be in a game, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always a good thing,â&#x20AC;? said Manning, his breath vaporizing as he spoke from the podium after the 2-hour workout. Manning, who spent much of his career inside in Indianapolis, has prepared for some coldweather games since coming to Denver in 2012 by soaking his right hand in ice water. He welcomed the blast of wintry weather after a relatively balmy stretch of January, which included a 63-degree Sunday afternoon when he led the Broncos past the New England Patriots for the AFC title. The knock on Manning is that for all his greatness, he crumbles in the cold and in the playoffs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he has just one championship ring in 12 previous trips to the postseason, eight of which ended in first-round exits, including last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s double-overtime loss to Baltimore on a frigid night in Denver. Manning could take care of both of those criticisms next week, when the Broncos face the Seattle Seahawks in East Rutherford, N.J., in the first outdoor Super Bowl ever held in a cold-weather city. With a win, he would be the first quarterback to lead two teams to the title. Although itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too early for forecasters to predict what the weather will be, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a decent chance for freezing temperatures or snow by kickoff on the night of Feb. 2. Although Manning is 167-73 in the regular season, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 11-11 in the playoffs. And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 4-7 in games that are below freezing at kickoff, although some of those were games where he played sparingly because the Colts had already locked up playoff seeding. Others were against New England, when the Patriots clearly had the better team. And Manning did complete 39 passes for 397 yards and four touchdowns against Tennessee last month when the

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning (18) throws a pass during practice Thursday in Englewood, Colo. The knock on arguably the best quarterback in NFL history is that he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t win in the cold, and he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t win consistently in the postseason â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but he has the chance to do both of those in Super Bowl XLVIII. in Denver this year and played outside in a lot of Regular-season record:  cold games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;...

Payton Manning By the Numbers

Free agency will shape Chicago draft

L

ong before the Bears get around to the NFL draft, they will have to decide what participation, if any, they will have in NFL free agency, which will begin March 11. On offense, they have to decide whether to retain backup quarterbacks Josh McCown and Jordan Palmer, and starting center Roberto Garza. On defense, Henry Melton, Corey Wootton, Nate Collins, D.J. Williams, James Anderson, Major Wright and Charles Tillman will be free agents, as will punt and kickoff returner Devin Hester. It appears the Bears will try to keep McCown, but if another team is willing to offer him any more than $2.5 to $3 million a year on a multiyear deal, the Bears probably will allow him to walk and stick with Palmer. It is highly unlikely both will be back. Wootton is the only other one of their own free agents they will make a priority to retain, but it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be shocking to see Williams back, too. They will then have one more decision to make before they plunge into the free agent marketplace. Are the Bears going to stick with the Tampa 2, onegap defense, or will they switch to more of a base 4-3 two-gap defense, or the 3-4? Many are assuming the addition of Paul Pasqualoni as defensive line coach and Reggie Herring as linebackers coach, according to The Score and FoxSports1â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Alex Marvez, could signal a switch to the 3-4, because both have significant experience in that scheme. But both are also more than capable of coaching in the 4-3. So that speculation may be premature. Whatever scheme the Bears decide on, they are going to need at least one more starter at defensive end, at least one at tackle, and probably one at linebacker, one cornerback, and at least one or possibly two new safeties. They are not going to find five to seven new starters on defense, plus a center, young quarterback and kick returner, all in one draft. So some participation in free agency is a given. Safety is a priority for the Bears, and the draft

crop is thin. Jairus Byrd of the Bills, Clevelandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s T.J. Ward, and Indianapolisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Antoine Bethea are all Pro Bowl safeties and free agents. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not inconceivable Ward will get a franchise tag, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s likely all three will hit the market, as well as the 49ersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Donte Whitner, New Orleansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Malcolm Jenkins, and Philadelphiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nate Allen. Those three should be a bit less expensive. Any of the six would be a significant upgrade over Chris Conte or Major Wright. The problem with discussing defensive linemen is that most of the best 4-3 prospects are not good fits in a 3-4. But assuming the Bears stay with what they know, the Panthersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Greg Hardy, Bengalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Michael Johnson, Vikingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jared Allen, Giantsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Justin Tuck, and Seahawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Michael Bennett are the best 4-3 ends on the market. Hardy likely will sign a longterm deal in Carolina, or be franchised. The Bengals franchised Johnson in 2013, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to picture them tagging him 2 years in a row. As you may have heard, Bennett is Bears tight end Martellus Bennettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother, and is having a good postseason with the Seahawks. He did have 8½ sacks this season and five tackles for loss, and had nine sacks in Tampa in 2012. But he managed just six sacks total his first 3 years in the league, and is not the double-digit sack pass-rushing threat the Bears desperately need, assuming Julius Peppers is a cap casualty. There are plenty of 3-4 tackles and ends to pick from, with the Cowboysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jason Hatcher, Packersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; B.J. Raji, and Dolphinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Paul Soliai the most interesting, but really no three-technique tackles to get excited about. If Tillman walks, the Patriotsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Aqib Talib and Falconsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Brent Grimes are the best corners available. But Talib is likely to stay in New England, and Grimes is not an upgrade over Tillman.

To place your AD TODAY!

As long as you are confident in your abilities, nothing and no one will be able to hold you back this year. Others may not be able to keep up with you, but your resolve will allow you to prosper in many areas of your life. Positive relationships will enable you to outmaneuver the competition.

Love should be your focus. If you are coy or distracted, your partner will not be pleased.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You may not feel like working, but doing so will keep you out of trouble on a personal level, and you will manage to make progress professionally as well. If you feel restless, examine your options.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- This is a great day for love and romance. Do something thoughtful for your special someone. You can also meet potential partners through a trip or by attending events.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -It’s a good idea to be as active as possible today. Meet up with informed and likeminded people. Travel will lead to a creative opportunity. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You will likely have to face an older relative’s difficulties. It’s an opportune time to check out real estate or other longterm investments. Financial opportunities are likely to manifest. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -A partnership can improve your life, but don’t let your fears or your stubbornness get in the way.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Find an opportunity to get closer to a colleague or superior. You can gain ground if you form alliances, but be careful whom you choose.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don’t take any personal or professional chances today. Changes are inevitable, so prepare to accept them and move on with grace.
