SERVING ROCK FALLS, STERLING AND THE SURROUNDING AREA SINCE 1854

ROCK FALLS

Comcast closing office Oct. 30 is rough date; center base for 20 technical staffers BY PAM EGGEMEIER peggemeier@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5570

ROCK FALLS – Time is running out for local Comcast customers to pay their bills at the company’s service center at U.S. Route 30 and 13th Avenue. Comcast plans to close the office portion of the building on or about Oct. 30. The cable, Internet and phone service provid-

er has had a full-service center there since 2002. A Comcast spokesman said the company will remain at the building for the foreseeable future because it is the base for about 20 technical staff members who service equipment throughout the area. Sterling has no Comcast service center. The move will mean that three office workers will lose their jobs. A company

spokeswoman in Rockford called their performance “exemplary,” and said they would be offered other jobs within the company. The company said the move is simply about efficiencies because customers have more convenient ways to access their services and pay bills. COMCAST CONTINUED ON A4

Richard Dombroski, MaryLouise Angone and Terry Buckaloo stand with the tomatoes that were harvested from the seeds found in the privy of the Lincoln-Manahan Home in Sterling. Dombroski was the general contractor for the renovation of the home for the Sterling-Rock Falls Historical Society. Buckaloo is the society’s curator. Angone is a master gardener from Sterling who was able to grow heirloom, also known as heritage, tomatoes from the seeds.

STERLING – You wouldn’t expect to find delicious tomatoes while digging around an old outhouse. And that isn’t exactly what was found when the Sterling-Rock Falls Historical Society had a privy dig at the Lincoln-Manahan Home a few years ago. Let’s just say the seed was planted, however.

Among the few unique artifacts found were 150-year-old heirloom tomato seeds. It took a little while for them to bear fruit. The privy, or outhouse, was on the property of the Lincoln-Manahan Home, which the historical society purchased in 2007. The society spent about 4 years renovating the home, at 607 E. Third St. in Sterling.

More information The Lincoln-Manahan Home is open from April 1 through Nov. 1. Check out the SterlingRock Falls Historical Society website at srfhs. com for museum details.

CRIME

Hit-and-run suspects now jailed in Illinois Both extradited from Texas more than a month ago BY CHRISTI WARREN cwarren@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5521

MORRISON – Two Rock Falls men charged in an April hit-andrun accident that left a Sterling man critically

injured are behind bars in Illinois. Dayton J. Hicks, 19, and Jorden E. Johnson, 22, were arrested in July in Corpus Christi, Texas. Whiteside County Sheriff Kelly Wilhelmi initially said their extradition to Illinois could take months. In fact, it took only a few weeks. They have been in Illinois since Aug. 10, Wil-

Dayton J. Hicks

probation on an aggravated battery conviction. Both are charged with attempted murder, and both have pleaded not guilty. Each has a pretrial hearing scheduled for Wednesday. Jacob Carr, 20, was found critically injured, lying in the 300 block of West Fifth Street in Sterling about 12:30 a.m.

Jorden E. Johnson

helmi said Thursday. Hicks is in Whiteside County Jail. Johnson is in prison, where he is being held for violating his

April 2. Police are unsure of how long he was lying there, but have said it could have been as long as an hour before he was found and then flown to OSF Saint Anthony Medical Center in Rockford. He no longer is hospitalized, but his recovery has been slow. The investigation was slow-going, too. It took police 2 months to name

Smiddy writes check to day care

Barn, stable fire kills two horses

Nonprofit tour makes stop in Sauk Valley BY PAM EGGEMEIER peggemeier@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5570

TAMPICO – State Rep. Mike Smiddy was in town Thursday to visit a new day care center and write a check to the hosts. Smiddy and Mayor Kristine Hill toured the village-operated facility at the Ronald Reagan Community Center. Tampico was the second stop on the Hillsdale Democrat’s tour of nonprofit organizations in the 71st District.

Smiddy will give $200 to each organization as part of his pledge to donate Mike his legislaSmiddy tive raise, which he opposed, back to nonprofits in his district. State legislators will receive, on average, an extra $3,000 in salary during the fiscal year that began July 1. It’s not exactly a pay increase, but money they will recoup from a furlough program that the state discontinued.

As part of the last budget bill, lawmakers voted to stop taking the 12 unpaid furlough days they had been taking each year since 2009. The furloughs amounted to a 5 percent pay cut for most lawmakers. Smiddy made $64,796 in the past fiscal year. Smiddy commended the mayor for getting the day care project off the ground. “As a small-town boy myself, I understand that sometimes we’ve got to pull up our sleeves and get the job done with our own two hands,� Smiddy said. “That’s exactly

what she’s done here.� Hill thanked Smiddy for his interest in the project. “We are so excited to have Mike’s help in getting this facility open and available to the families in our area,� she said. The new facility is home to the Tiger Club, an after-school program, and plans are to expand services as funding allows. The YWCA of the Sauk Valley was the first stop on Smiddy’s nonprofit tour. Executive Director Carol Fitzgerald received a $200 check Aug. 1.

Your Sport. Jobless rate declines in August Our Specialty. 40,600 more jobs than 1 year ago ST. LOUIS (AP) – Illinois’ unemployment fell in August to 6.7 percent, the sixth straight monthly decrease in the state’s jobless rate, the Illinois Department of Employment Security said Thursday. The latest figure, down one-tenth of a percentage point from July, represents a drop from 9.2 percent one year ago and marks the largest year-over-year decline since 1984, the department said. The last time the rate was lower than 6.7 was in July 2008, when it was 6.6 percent. There are 40,600 more jobs than 1 year ago, according to Thursday’s announcement, though the meaning of that was open to interpretation

Bruce Rauner

Gov. Pat Quinn

by Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn and his Republican challenger, Bruce Rauner. Using his visit Thursday to a global Chicago pump-rebuilding company as a backdrop, Quinn heralded August’s employment showing as “proof that Illinois’ comeback continues.� “More people are working today than at any time in the past 6 years, and that is thanks in part to companies like Hydro who are staking their future right here in the Land of Lincoln,� Quinn said, noting that Hydro – with more than 430 employees

worldwide – has grown its workforce by 15 percent during the past year. “While we have more work to do, we are getting the job done, and Illinois is headed in the right direction,� said Quinn, seeking a second full term. Rauner, while acknowledging that “it’s always good news when more Illinoisans are working,� countered Quinn’s enthusiasm, insisting “we still have a huge ways to go to get out of the massive hole� he blamed on Quinn, Quinn predecessor and now-imprisoned Rod Blagojevich, and Illinois House Speaker Michael Madigan. “We need to put our economy on jet fuel, and under Pat Quinn it’s struggling along on leaded gas,� Rauner, a wealthy venture capitalist, said in a statement.

OBITUARIES Ethel I. Young LANARK – Ethel I. Young, 93, of Lanark, passed away Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2014. She was born Sept. 4, 1921, in Lee County, near Nachusa, the daughter of Charles H. and Grace M. (Weidman) Shippert. Ethel grew up on her parents’ farm. She attended a local, one-room country school, and graduated from Dixon High School. She married Grant C. Young on Dec. 27, 1943, in a ceremony at her parents’ home. During World War II, before and subsequent to her marriage, she was engaged in important war work. First, she worked at the large heavy ordnance manufacturing center near Amboy, and then, in a more demanding position, in the vast Manhattan Project, which designed and produced the atomic bombs which were utilized to induce the Japanese to surrender immediately. Her husband having opted to continue a career in the regular Navy, Ethel had to move her home 18 times at intervals over a 27-year period. She established a lovely home for her husband and children wherever his duty stationed him. She participated actively in church and community work, and frequently as a hospital volunteer in many areas of the United States. Since her husband’s retirement in July 1970

from the naval service, she maintained a loving home for him and their widespread family members on their farm near Lanark. She continued until old age overtook her to participate actively in Lanark United Methodist Church’s work and activities. Survivors include her husband, Grant; three daughters, Cheryl L. (Greg) Ziombra of Silver Springs, Maryland, Dawn F. Brennan of Overland Park, Kansas, and April I. (Barry) Marks of Brookfield; one son, Dr. Grant R. (Melissa) Young of Wausau, Wisconsin; nine grandchildren; and five greatgrandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents; three sisters; two brothers; a son-in-law, John Brennan of Kansas City, Kansas; and a brotherin-law, Frank E. Young of Grand Detour. Visitation will be from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday in the Fireplace Room at Lanark United Methodist Church, and the funeral at 11 a.m. Saturday at the church. Interment will be at Oakwood Cemetery in Dixon. Russell-Frank Funeral Home in Lanark is handling arrangements. A memorial has been established for the planting of new trees at Lanark Cemetery and Oakwood Cemetery in Dixon. Visit schwarzfh.com to send condolences.

Yurko: Input from CDC: Don’t forget your flu shot community crucial HEALTH

WASHINGTON (AP) – It’s time for flu vaccine again and, while it’s important for the whole family, this year health officials have some different advice for different ages: Certain kids should opt for the ouchless nasal spray. Seniors, expect to get a new kind of pneumonia shot along with that flu jab. And too many young and middle-age adults are skipping the vaccine altogether, says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – even though there are more options than ever. “The best way to protect yourself against the flu is to get a flu vaccination,� said CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden on Thursday, before rolling up his sleeve to get his own flu shot. The government recommends a yearly flu vaccine for nearly everyone starting at 6 months of age. Yet only about half of Ameri-

On average, the CDC estimates, flu kills about 24,000 Americans a year. Vaccination rates last year were highest for children under 5 – 70 percent – and for seniors – 65 percent, the CDC said. But just a third of healthy adults ages 18 to

64 got vaccinated and, surprisingly, last year hospitalizations were highest among that age group. About 55 percent of school-age children were vaccinated. Parents need to realize that flu vaccine is crucial even for otherwise healthy children, said Dr. Paul Offit of the Children’s

Hospital of Philadelphia. At least 100 U.S. children died of flu last year, only half of whom had lung conditions or other illnesses that put them at high risk and most of whom weren’t vaccinated. About half of pregnant women get vaccinated. The shot can be given during any trimester, and also protects the baby during the first few months of life, said obstetrician Dr. Laura Riley of Massachusetts General Hospital. About 150 million doses are being shipped this year, with no signs of shortages or delays, Frieden said. About half will protect against four strains of influenza instead of the usual three, he said, as U.S. manufacturers move toward vaccines with that extra bit of protection. CDC doesn’t recommend one over the other.

The group will determine which options are off-thetable, or things that will not be talked about. “It’s a good conversation to have,� said Superintendent Michael Juenger. One option that might be deemed off-limits is Lincoln Elementary School. In December, the school board voted to close the school and reassigned grades to other buildings. Sandi Baar, a teacher in the school district, said having an off-limits list is a good idea. “It’s important that we do that,� she said. “In this community, people appreciate the fact that you are straight with them, even if they don’t like it.� A 14-member task force, also comprised by community members of school

officials, recently reviewed the district buildings. The panel determined that the buildings were inadequate for 21st-century learning, in regards to safety and security, compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and when it comes to athletic and performing arts facilities. Yurko said input from the community is crucial. “We want to hear from the community and what their concerns and needs are,� she said. “We already have parents who are interested, and that is nice to see.� Over the next 6 to 8 months, the committee wants to gather as much input as possible. “This will be a richer and better plan because of their voice,� Yurko said. “They really need to have the best interest of the kids and community in mind. The more of those people that we have engaged in the process, the better.�

Illinois Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner speaks during an interview Thursday in Chicago. Rauner is running against Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn in the November 2014 general election. Rauner said he’s not a fan of gambling or slot machines at airports, adding, “It can be an addictive thing and it can hurt families that can’t afford to be hurt.”

Rauner not fan of gambling, airport slots Quinn has twice vetoed motions for expansion CHICAGO (AP) – Republican candidate for governor Bruce Rauner said Thursday he’s not a fan of gambling or a plan to put slot machines at Chicago’s international airports, but he wouldn’t stand in the way of adding casinos, if local communities support it. Illinois lawmakers for years have pushed for expanding gambling as a way to generate funds for a state that’s billions of dollars in debt and facing a multibillion-dollar budget shortfall. But Rauner made clear in an interview with The Associated Press that he has misgivings. “I don’t gamble. I don’t like gambling,” said Rauner, a businessman from Winnetka who’s in a tight race against Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn. “It can be an addictive thing and it can hurt families that can’t afford to be hurt.” Rauner, who said any expansion should maximize profit, also said he’d lean against putting slots at O’Hare and Midway airports – one of the ideas that’s been floated in the Illinois Legislature. “When visitors are coming into Illinois there’s a certain image you project when folks are coming through, and I’m not sure I want that to be the image of Illinois,” he said. Quinn has twice vetoed gambling expansion proposals, largely over ethical concerns about corruption. He’s said Illinois shouldn’t settle for a gambling bill that “includes loopholes for mobsters.” Last year’s bill calling for five new casinos fizzled out after the Illinois Gaming Board questioned if Chicago would have the authority to oversee its own casino. The bill’s sponsor has since tried to iron out that issue and others by presenting lawmakers with the option of separating out the Chicago casino from four other proposed locations in a suburb south of Chicago and the counties of Lake, Winnebago and Vermilion. Quinn has said those plans need further review. “I am open to gaming expansion if it is done with strong oversight and ethical standards,” Quinn wrote in an AP candidate questionnaire. Rauner said he would push for “careful, thoughtful restrictions about who’s involved” in gambling expansion, citing concerns about Illinois’ history with organized crime.

Libertarian allowed on ballot 302).'&)%,$!0 n! Sangamon County judge on Thursday rejected the Republican Party’s attempt to have a Libertarian candidate for Illinois governor struck from the Nov. 4 ballot. Judge Patrick Kelley denied GOP attorneys’ appeal of a State Board of Elections decision to allow Chad Grimm of Peoria on the ballot. The GOP attorneys had challenged the validity of the voter signatures gathered by several Libertarian petition circulators. Grimm is a fiscal conservative who advocates minimalist government. Kelley found that the evidence supported the board’s decision, noting that the court could overturn it “only if it finds the rulings are clearly erroneous.” Supporters of the casino proposals have said they could generate up to $1 billion in revenue each year for the state and create much-needed jobs. But most of Illinois’ 10 existing casinos have worried that over-saturation could hurt their business and lead to job losses.

During that time, a group of three men from the Chicago suburbs who specialize in antiques and archeological digs related to privy searches were brought in to help. A privy also was commonly used as a dumping ground for garbage, historical society curator Terry Buckaloo said. The original parts of the home go as far back as 1847, he said, and Abraham Lincoln stayed overnight in July 1856. “In this case, the privy was under a parking lot,” Buckaloo said. “The tell was a square depression in the asphalt.” The men found fine china – some broken, some whole – dating to the mid-19th century. Also discovered were medicine bottles, clay marble, part of a clay tobacco pipe stem, and “a lot” of dishes of the blue transferware style, in addition to tomato seeds – though at the time, no one was sure what kind of seeds they were. “[The diggers] could tell by all the artifacts that it was definitely the 1850s,” Buckaloo said. “We have a lot of them on display at the [Lincoln-Manahan home].” The tomato seeds were “kind of indestructible,” Buckaloo said. The tiny kernels passed through the digestive system and weren’t destroyed, he said, while pointing to a book that labeled them as “undigested fruit and vegetable seeds.” While Buckaloo sure knows his history, his plant knowledge isn’t the greatest, he said. He tried to grow tomatoes from the seed but failed. That’s where MaryLouise Angone, a master gardener from Sterling, played a crucial role. The 71-year-old Angone has about

The dig was in an area where an outhouse once was on the property of the Lincoln-Manahan Home in Sterling. 60 hours of horticulture classes under her belt and volunteers her time through the University of Illinois Extension Office. Coursework intensity is equivalent to the same one would see from a horticulture degree, she said. Angone, who was brought on to try her green thumb with the seeds found during the privy dig, was able to grow two of about 50 tomato seeds using a fluorescent grow light. “This has great historical value,” she said, noting an air of adventure because no one was quite sure what kind of seeds they were before they were planted. The batch hatched at her home, she said, a process that began in March and produced about six tomatoes. When they ripened, they produced a burnt, brownish color, instead of red, she said. “They taste very good.”

EDITORIAL | MEDICAL MARIJUANA

Suitors vie for lone pot-growing permit T

his time of year, competition is intense across the

board. Major League Baseball pennant races heat up. NFL football teams shift into high gear. College and high school sports contests abound. Politicians crisscross the state in search of votes. Add the chase for a medical marijuana cultivation center to the list. Recent weeks have witnessed widening interest in just exactly where the pot-growing facility for this area will be. The application submission

period, Sept. 8 through 22, prompted the increase in activity. According to Illinois’ medical marijuana law, only one such facility will be allowed in each Illinois State Police district. In our region, ISP District 1, whose headquarters is in Sterling, takes in Whiteside, Lee, Ogle and Carroll counties. The proposals that have materialized in the Sauk Valley of late will have to compete against each other to win the state’s official blessing. Contenders have cropped up in several communities.

What we think Only one permit to grow medical marijuana will be granted in our region. Who will win it? The competition is growing. In June, the Lee County Board agreed to support a marijuana-growing operation proposed for the Green River Industrial Park. In August, the same board heard a proposal from an Elmhurst-based physician who wants to set up

a cultivation center near Amboy. And the Lee board heard this week from proponents of a grow facility on U.S. Route 30 near the Whiteside County line. This week, the Whiteside County Board indi-

cated it would support a pot growing facility, if one desires to locate with the county. Possible locations in Sterling, north of Morrison, and the Fulton area were discussed. The city of Rock Falls voted to transfer industrial park land in preparation for a possible sale for a proposed medical marijuana cultivation center and dispensary. Also this week, the Dixon City Council voted unanimously to sell land in the Lee County Industrial Park to one of two competing groups interested in growing medical

marijuana there. So that makes at least eight groups in the hunt for one pot-growing permit for District 1. The permit winner will make money, pay taxes and fees, create jobs, and provide a service to ailing people who receive prescriptions for medical marijuana. We’re always interested in the winners of sporting competitions and elections. We join the community in watching and waiting to see who will win the District 1 medical marijuana permit sweepstakes.

GUEST COLUMN | IGPA: ON THE ISSUES

Lack of valid evidence hinders policymaking Base laws on reality, and they might be better CHRISTOPHER Z. MOONEY Chicago

(First in a series) Prisons are vastly overcrowded. College tuition is rising fast. Roads and bridges are crumbling. Public pensions are on the verge of disaster. Why is Illinois state government so inept? While public problems are inherently difficult to solve, Illinois seems to be particularly adrift these days. One explanation for this phenomenon is the dearth of valid and reliable evidence used in public policymaking. We live at a time of unprecedented knowledge about the physical world and the human condition, and scientists by the thousands on university campuses and in private industry are working daily to increase this body of knowledge. Do we know everything? Of course not. But we do know more policy-relevant information now than ever before.

There are understandable, if not justifiable, reasons for the lack of a more rational and evidence-based public policy. First, in the Legislature and on the campaign trail, much policy argument is supported by anecdote rather than by valid and reliable evidence. A colorful Christopher example of Z. Mooney a problem can be good political fodder for moving a proposal along the process, but such an example often differs significantly from the average instance of a problem. And as such, policy made with this information will be biased in some way. PEOPLE ALSO overestimate the probability of events that are especially vivid. For instance, crime is vividly and frequently

portrayed in the news. This causes people to believe that there is more crime than is in fact the case. Crime rates have been dropping for years, but people believe otherwise. This misperception not only affects lawmakers themselves, it also affects the pressures they receive from their constituents. Rationality in policymaking is also reduced by the fear of political reprisal. Lawmakers typically consider how a given decision might determine whether they will win or lose at the polls. This is a good thing in a representative democracy because it helps to hold officials accountable to voters. But lawmakers’ overconcern with the contents of the next opposition mailer can keep them from listening to the evidence on an issue. For example, the morbid fear of being portrayed as “soft on crime�

by an opponent has led to a dangerous and irrational ratcheting up of criminal laws and penalties. And that has helped push our national incarceration rate to be the highest in the world – by far. Legislative logrolling can also limit the quality and quantity of evidence used in policymaking. This practice of trading votes to get legislation approved is especially common for big infrastructure projects, where concrete is spread around the state according to political need or clout rather than the objective need for roads,

Note to readers: This is the first of a seven-part weekly series on issues that impact the 2014 election campaign. The mission of the Institute of Government and Public Affairs is to bring nonpartisan, expert information into the policy and political discussion in Illinois. bridges, and water systems. Engineers have exacting standards for determining infrastructure needs, and their input is certainly not completely ignored. But even at the margins, logrolling can bias overall policy. LIKEWISE, PASSING significant school financing reform in the state often is determined by how a particular scheme would affect various lawmakers’ district schools rather than any standard related to education. Logrolling may get things done in Springfield, but it can also bias policy. Is data the only thing we need to make good public policy? Should Illinois

be turned into a technocratic system run by college professors and other scientists? The answer to both questions is no. Values and preferences must always play a strong role in policymaking. Not every policy question can be settled by science. But the deliberation of many issues could undoubtedly be enhanced by the introduction of valid and reliable evidence. Even good values, when applied to the wrong facts – or to no facts at all – can lead to poor decisions and poor public policy. Note to readers: Christopher Z. Mooney is director of the University of Illinois’ Institute of Government and Public Affairs.

DAY TRIP

Everything but the kitchen sink Families On! Challenge features unique obstacle course BY ANDREA MILLS amills@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5575

QUAD CITIES – If traveling means a lot of sitting and driving, then a day trip designed to get people moving might be just the ticket. Whether day-trippers want to watch or be part of the action, the Families On! Challenge is sure to inspire activity. Participants form “family” teams of two or more people, consisting of members who do not have to be related. They will compete in an obstacle course Oct. 11 at Credit Island Park in Davenport, Iowa. “Whatever Mom and Dad said don’t do at home is probably in the race,” Drew Brantley, one of the challenge’s creators, said in a press release. “Oversized furniture you jump on and climb over, foam in the bathtub, dishes tossed at the dishwasher, and a food fight are just some of the fun elements of the challenge.” The course has 16 challenges over its 2.5-mile length. This year’s theme is “Everything You Can’t Do at Home.” Participants can be of any age and complete the course at their own pace. Feeling tired? Racers can skip whatever obstacles they want. When you finish with the obstacle course, the day’s events are far from over. The Celebration Station will have dance, theatrical, and musical performances throughout the day. Between shows, interviews, contests, and challenges will add to the festivities. Visitors won’t have to worry about parking on the island; a shuttle service will transport guests to and from Centennial Park, 315 S. Marquette St., which is on the riverfront. Not only will the event be fun and exercise, it also will help

Not all that much: Just gather up a folding chair, sunscreen, a towel, and a change of clothing, then head to Davenport.

Credit Island is a community park with a playground. It also connects to portions of the Great River Trail for walkers and bicyclists.

Dear Found the Proof, There is a saying, “The best defense is a good offense.� That’s the playbook your father is following by trying to make you feel guilty for HIS transgression. Because your mother found another woman’s jewelry in her home, she may already have a hunch that something is wrong. It is not your job to save anybody’s marriage.

Mom came to help out, and she and Evan engaged in tense conversations concerning politics and religion. I asked them to please not talk about such things with each other, but they didn’t listen. Two days after my arrival home with the baby, they had a huge argument and Mom walked out. She has never returned to our home. Since then, I have never had a holiday with my parents, although I do travel once or twice a year with the kids to see them.

Mom and Evan did come to an understanding when our third child was born, but that, too, ended in separation 6 months later. I have tried asking them both to apologize or talk with each other, to no avail. I can’t control either person, so what suggestions do you have to repair the relationship so I can have family holidays and get-togethers again? – In the Middle in Colorado

as you might wish differently, the only people who can fix this are the two of them. If they were more mature, they would, in the name of family harmony, agree to disagree. Until they reorganize their priorities, you have no choice but to create your own family during holidays by getting together and celebrating with friends or other relatives if they are close by. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her Dear In the Middle, mother, Pauline PhilFrom where I sit, you’re lips.

Are You All In? The expression “all in” refers to wagering one’s entire stake in poker, and thus has the connotation of being entirely committed to one’s hand, or by extension, to whatever one is doing. One could commit oneself entirely to a business proposition by investing all of one’s savings, for instance. Committing yourself to God is a lot like declaring that you are “all in.” That is, we can’t play half of our stake or only invest half of our resources in the kingdom of heaven.We must be completely committed to the spiritual life, wholeheartedly and single-mindedly giving our lives over to God. Anything else and you just aren’t all in. - Christopher Simon With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments! Psalm 119:10

No-cost play can contain dangers

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

Marcel Proust, a French author best known for his novel “In Search of Lost Time,” said, “If a little dreaming is dangerous, the cure for it is not to dream less but to dream more, to dream all the time.” At the bridge table, you must “dream” of the best bids and plays. Sometimes they will seem to be dangerous, but bridge is not a game for cowards. ‘If a bid or play looks best, go for it and ignore the torpedoes. In today’s deal, East has to try to defeat four hearts. West leads the club queen. South wins with dummy’s king, draws three rounds of trumps (West following throughout), and shifts to

the spade king from an initial holding of king-doubleton. What should East do after winning with his spade ace? South’s two-heart rebid showed at least a six-card

suit and a minimum opening, usually 12-14 high-card points. South can see 11 winners: three spades, six hearts and two clubs. But he might lose four tricks: one spade and three diamonds. However, when East gets in with his spade ace, leading away from the diamond K-J looks dangerous, and many players always return their partner’s suit (although that is much less likely to be right in a suit contract than in no-trump). Here, though, East should realize that leading back a club won’t defeat the contract. Also, from the bidding, South cannot have the diamond ace to go with his spade king and heart A-K-Q. East must to shift to the diamond three, which works like a dream. Count high-card points to place unseen honors. © 2014 UFS

WASHINGTON

Senate ready to support Obama on rebel aid Legislation also includes funding for government WASHINGTON (AP) – Eager to adjourn for midterm elections, the Senate steamed toward final congressional approval Thursday of President Barack Obama’s request

to train Syrian rebels for a war against Islamic state militants in the Middle East. The legislation also provides funding for the government after the end of the budget year on Sept. 30, eliminating any threat of a shutdown in the run-up to November elections for a new House and control of the Senate.

The House approved the bill Wednesday. Leaders in both political parties swung behind the legislation in the Senate. But the measure split their rank and file, Republicans and Democrats alike, and likely created new fault lines for this fall’s elections as well as the 2016 race for the White House.

“Intervention that destabilizes the Middle East is a mistake. And yet, here we are again, wading into a civil war,� said Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. laying down a marker for Republican presidential primaries still more than a year distant. Sen. Mark Begich, an Alaska Democrat in a difficult re-election cam-

a stand-alone vote on training Syrian rebels, rather than one on that issue and spending combined. For a second straight day, the administration dispatched top-ranking officials to reassure lawmakers – and the public – that no U.S. ground combat operation was in the offing.

Unprecedented turnout seen in Scotland’s independence vote EDINBURGH, Scotland (AP) – From the capital of Edinburgh to the farflung Shetland Islands, Scots embraced a historic moment – and the rest of the United Kingdom held its breath – after voters turned out in unprecedented numbers for an independence referendum that could end the country’s 307-year union with England. After the polls closed late Thursday, many Scots settled in to stay up all night in homes and bars, awaiting the result that could change their lives, shake financial markets worldwide and boost other independence movements from Flanders to Catalonia to Quebec. “Why not roll the dice for once?� Yes supporter Thomas Roberts said at one Edinburgh polling station. “I’m going to sit with a beer in my hand watching the results coming in.� A nationwide count began immediately at 32 regional centers across Scotland. At Highland Hall outside of Edinburgh, where the final result will be announced later Friday, vote-counters at dozens of tables sorted through paper ballots, watched keenly by

monitors from the Yes and No camps. Early turnout totals for a number of regions ranged from 75 percent to over 90 percent, among the highest levels seen in decades. The first of the 32 results saw a 54-46 percent No victory in the central district of Clackmannanshire. Results from the cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow were not expected for several hours. Eager voters had lined up outside some polling stations even before they opened Thursday. More than 4.2 million people

had registered to vote – 97 percent of those eligible – including residents as young as 16. For some, it was a day they had dreamed of for decades. For others, the time had finally come to make up their minds about the future – both for themselves and for the United Kingdom. “Fifty years I fought for this,� said 83-yearold Isabelle Smith, a Yes supporter in Edinburgh’s maritime district of Newhaven, a former fishing port. “And we are going to win. I can feel it in my bones.�

Marshall goes on defensive Bears receiver holds court on abuse BY JEFF ARNOLD Chicago Football

LAKE FOREST – During a wide-ranging and sometimes bizarre press conference that lasted nearly 40 minutes and was part societal commentary, part court deposition, and part condemnation of a 2-year-old ESPN profile chronicling his history with domestic abuse and borderline personality disorder, Bears receiver Brandon Marshall vented, putting the past 7 years of his life and beyond on full display. Marshall, who had three touchdown catches in Sunday night’s come-from-behind 28-20 victory over the 49ers, spent the bulk of his time in front of the media detailing his family’s long relationship with domestic abuse.

Dixon goalie LeSage makes correct call on late penalty kick BY TY REYNOLDS treynolds@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 5554

AP

Chicago Bears receiver Brandon Marshall talks to reporters Thursday in Lake Forest after old domestic abuse allegations resurfaced.

SPORTS inside

DIXON – Time seemed to slow down for Nick LeSage, but at the same time, it felt like it was moving too fast. The referee’s words didn’t really sink in as the Dixon sophomore goalkeeper eyed the ball resting at the feet of Mendota’s Javier Rosales. Then, Rosales received his instructions. The ball was placed in the middle of the penalty box, and Rosales backed away to line up his penalty kick, and LeSage took a deep breath. As Rosales approached the ball, LeSage made his best guess … and he guessed right. Rosales kicked the ball to his right,

Star of the game: Nick LeSage, Dixon, stopped penalty kick with 1:50 left to preserve win Key performers: Remington LeRette, Dixon, goal; Jesus Delao, Mendota, 5 saves in goal Up next: Sterling at Dixon, 11:30 a.m. Saturday LeSage dove to his left, and the ball made solid contact with LeSage’s hands and bounced away. The Dukes then kept the ball away from their keeper for the next 1:50, preserving a 1-0 victory over the Trojans. “My mind is racing right now, it’s just so crazy, I’m so excited,” LeSage said

after being mobbed by teammates and leading the final “DUKES!” chant upon breaking the postgame huddle. “As soon as he kicked it, I knew I had it, but when I felt the ball hit my hands, I almost didn’t believe it. It’s still unreal.” It was only the second save LeSage had to make all match, as Dixon (5-5, 4-3 Big Northern West) controlled the tempo most of the way. The Dukes peppered Mendota keeper Jesus Delao with nine shots, of which he saved five; three others were either blocked by defenders or went just wide of the mark. The Trojans (9-4-2, 4-2-1) managed just three shots on goal.

The Royals’ Alcides Escobar points to the dugout after trying to score against the Tigers during a game on Sept. 10. The Royals and Tigers meet in a three-game weekend series that will likely determine the AL Central winner.

Central time now Royals-Tigers series should determine division winner BY DAVE SKRETTA !03PORTS7RITER

Junis to be honored

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Alcides Escobar stood in front of his locker after hitting a home run that helped boost the Royals to a victory over the White Sox, and glanced at a TV screen hanging to his left. On it, the Twins were putting the finishing touches on a win over the Tigers. “This is going to be a big series,� Escobar said. The results Wednesday night allowed Kansas City to claw within a half-game of Detroit in the AL Central, and sets up arguably the biggest series at Kauffman Stadium in decades. The two teams open a pivotal three-game series Friday night with just over a week left in the season. “That’s a big series, for the whole year,� Escobar said, barely containing a smile. “The team is going really good right now. Detroit, everybody knows, is good. Coming in here, it’s exciting, playing at home. It’s going to be a great series.� Naturally, the soundtrack echoing through the clubhouse loudspeakers reflected the Royals’ attitude: Archie Eversole’s “We Ready,� playing on repeat. “If you would have seen it in here about 30 minutes ago, it was exciting,� said Lorenzo Cain, whose three-run homer off White Sox ace Chris Sale paced the Royals on Wednesday night. “We’re definitely ready to go.� Both teams were off Thursday, which means both bullpens will

But they’ll probably be an afterthought considering the heavy hitters who will be starting the series. Former Cy Young winner Justin Verlander (13-12) heads to the mound Friday night for Detroit against left-hander Jason Vargas, who has had a resurgent year in Kansas City. Vargas is 11-9 with a 3.41 ERA, though he lost to the Tigers just over a week ago at Comerica Park. The Tigers’ Max Scherzer is on the mound Saturday against fellow ace James Shields. Rick Porcello starts for Detroit on Sunday against veteran Jeremy Guthrie. “Nothing needs to be said. There’s not a person in this clubhouse that doesn’t understand the importance of this series,� Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said. “This is fun. There should be a lot of energy – a lot more energy in the stands on the Royals side.� The Royals (83-68) have already clinched back-to-back winning seasons in non-strike-shortened years for the first time since 1988-

89. With four more wins, they would eclipse last season’s mark for their best record since going 92-70 during the ’89 season. The Royals are looking to win the division for the first time since 1985. But the Royals also began Thursday tied with Oakland for the first wild-card spot, and fans were queueing up in a line stretching hundreds of yards from the Kauffman Stadium ticket windows by midmorning in the hopes of purchasing wildcard tickets. It’s heady stuff for a city that has usually written off the Royals by mid-June, and turned its attention to the Chiefs across the parking lot by mid-September. The pressure of a pennant race is familiar to the Tigers. Anchored by their strong starting pitching and big-name stars such as Miguel Cabrera, they’ve captured the division each of the past three seasons. And each of those seasons, they’ve managed to at least reach the ALCS, falling in the World Series to San Francisco 2 years ago. “What we’ve got to do is keep playing the game the way we know how to play, control what we can control,� Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter said. “Go out there and prepare yourself and have good at-bats and play good defense and make good pitches. We do that, we’ll be fine.� Besides, Hunter said, the Royals are still the ones doing the chasing. “We’re still in first place,� he said. “We’re doing what we have to do.�

Bryant wants to force Cubs’ hand Organization might have to change plan because of rising star BY MARK GONZALES #HICAGO4RIBUNE

Kris Bryant received handshakes and hugs at Wrigley Field from Cubs manager Rick Renteria and several former teammates from Double-A Tennessee and Triple-A Iowa. But this was as close as Bryant, the minor league player of the year, will get to the majors this season. “It’s up to the guys in charge,� Bryant said Wednesday night before accepting an award as the Cubs’ minor league player of the year. “I’ve always said my job is to make it hard on them. And I think I’ve done that this year. And that’s all I’m going to do for the rest of my career. So I’ll go out there in spring training and give it all I got.� Bryant, 22, who batted

AP

Cubs prospect Kris Bryant was honored as the organization’s minor league player of the year before Wednesday’s game. .325 with a minor league-leading 43 home runs and 110 RBIs, assessed his future with a blend of optimism and realism in front of about 20 reporters. He is aware of the

struggles of Javier Baez, but didn’t necessarily believe he would be at a disadvantage next spring when he tries to make the opening day roster, despite the lack of major league experience that Baez and Jorge Soler are receiving. “I have a lot of confidence in myself to perform at a high level,� Bryant said. “Learning from Jorge and Javy on their struggles here will definitely help me next year, if I’m fortunate enough to play in the big leagues. That will give me a head start, just based on what their experiences were. “It doesn’t scare me at all. Javy is known for struggling at first, and then turning it around. The kid is a freak of nature. I have all the confidence in the world in him. I hit behind him

for 50 games at Iowa, and watched him do incredible things. Jorge is doing well, I don’t think I need to say anything.� Despite his prolific season at the plate, the Cubs didn’t promote Bryant because of 40-man roster issues, the fact that he completed his first full professional season, and that they didn’t want to start his major league service time. The 6-foot-5, 215pound Bryant also admitted he needed improvement to become a major league caliber third baseman, despite endorsements from several scouts who noticed his strides at Iowa. Bryant made seven errors in 67 games at Iowa after committing 14 miscues in 62 games at Tennessee.

LeRette scored both goals in Dixon’s 2-1 win Saturday in Mendota; the Trojans’ goal came on a penalty kick from … you guessed it, Rosales. It was that PK which set up the scene Thursday, and this time, it worked out in LeSage’s favor. “Last time we played them, he scored on a penalty kick, and he went to his right,” LeSage said. “I was thinking about that today as I got ready for this PK, and I decided that I’d go that

same way this time. I guess it worked out.” “It’s always a guessing game with penalty shots,” Mendota coach Chawn Huffaker. “I talked to my kicker, and he said he thought that since he went right Saturday, the goalie would think he would go left today, so he went back to the right. It was a nice play by the goalie … and Dixon took advantage of us not playing our ‘A’ game tonight.”

Saturday, September 20th 9am-1pm

The lone goal came from sophomore Remington LeRette, who corralled a loose ball in front of the Mendota goal and snuck it into the bottom left-hand corner past a diving Delao at the 14:30 mark of the first half. “We knew if we held them off in the midfield, we’d be able to keep them from getting a lot of offense,” senior Anthony Deseno said. “We just played with more and more confidence as the game went on.” Dixon coach Mahmoud Etemadi shifted Deseno and fellow forward Connor Carlson to the midfield, to help accomplish that goal. That left LeRette as the lone attacker, but he put enough pressure on the Trojans to keep them from making too many runs at LeSage. “I thought we really controlled the midfield, and that really dictated the game to Mendota,” Etemadi said. “Our defense was dominant for most of the game, and I thought everybody played outstanding.” Mendota went on the attack down the stretch, trying in vain to erase the one-goal deficit. After several close calls, the Trojans had a header goal disallowed with 6:50 to play, as the scorer was deemed to be offsides; Dixon agreed with the call, Mendota did not. But even after the penalty kick save, LeSage and the Dukes weren’t quite out of the woods. The Trojans were award-

“They’re so wellcoached,” Papoccia said. “Cory [Bielema] is one of the best coaches in the area, and I know he will get them coming out fired up. “They know that one win can make you forget about three losses. Anybody who expects a blowout just doesn’t know what that team can do to you.” In order for the Mustangs to be competitive, they will have to start controlling the football. They had issues last week in a 42-0 home loss to Fulton, as Morrison put the ball on the ground seven times and lost three fumbles. Part of the reason was due to quarterback Joey Brackemyer getting his first start of the season in the Three Rivers North opener for both teams. Coach Cory Bielema said after the game that Brackemyer was getting accustomed to the speed of the game, which could have accounted for some of the miscues. Brackemyer, a lefthanded junior, gives defenses a mirrored look compared with a traditional right-handed quarterback. So the Comets spent time this week practicing against lefthanded looks to prepare for Brackemyer.

Trevor Bolin Newman SENIOR

Joey Brackemyer -ORRISON JUNIOR

Newman’s Trevor Bolin, also a lefty, has been quarterbacking the Comets’ scout team offense. He is also one of Newman’s starting defensive backs, but the team has asked him to split time on the scout team to allow for valuable practice reps for his defensive mates. “It’s been a little different seeing that left-handed throw,” senior corner Brandon Alghrim said. “[Brackemyer] can throw to a different side, and he is really athletic. We are really going to have to focus on stopping him.” Leffelman also noted that he and fellow linebackers will have to focus on their technique, and will have to keep an eye on the shifty Brackemyer in the backfield, as well as knowing when dialing up a blitz that his blind side is different. “We saw on tape that left-handers like Brackemyer have the ability to use the opposite side of the field differently,” Leffelman said. “It’s just up to the defensive backs and linebackers to be able to do our jobs and play to our abilities.”

MLB ROUNDUP

L.A.’s big seventh buries Cubs By the Associated Press

Dee Gordon and pinch-hitter Andre Ethier hit RBI doubles in Los Angeles’ five-run seventh inning, and the Dodgers rallied to beat the Chicago Cubs 8-4 on Thursday night at Wrigley Field and extend their lead in the NL West. The Dodgers trailed 4-1 heading into the seventh, but six of their eight hitters reached base against reliever Neil Ramirez, with five hits and an error. Cubs rookie second baseman Logan Watkins couldn’t handle Juan Uribe’s hard-hit grounder with one out. That allowed the first run of the rally to score on a fielder’s choice. Los Angeles scored all the runs in the seventh inning against Ramirez (2-3), but only one was earned. The Dodgers moved 2½ games ahead of idle San Francisco in the NL West race. Los Angeles overcame a shaky start by Zack Greinke, who allowed four runs in five innings.

Life without Peterson officially starts for Vikings BY DAVE CAMPBELL AP Pro Football Writer

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. – NFL teams make succession plans all the time for star players moving past their prime. The sudden absence of Adrian Peterson from Minnesota’s backfield, though, did not reveal a carefully crafted blueprint. His hiatus, following a charge of child abuse against him in Texas, could hardly have been anticipated. The Vikings, thus, have begun to try to make due with an unproven group of running backs, lacking the ready-made replacement they might have been on track to acquire next year. Even if Peterson’s age and salary already made his future with the team uncertain beyond this season, before the off-the-field issue arose, the Vikings were certainly counting on him to be the featured part of the offense in 2014. “I don’t think you can say, ‘Hey, in this game we’re going to get three or four runs over 15 yards,’ like you would with Adrian,” offensive coordinator Norv Turner said. “So you just have to adjust your plan.” Matt Asiata, an undrafted third-year player with 62 career carries, is expected to start Sunday at New Orleans. Rookie Jerick McKinnon will also have opportunities to run the ball and catch it out of the backfield. Joe Banyard is the other tailback on the roster. “It was really tough, not having our best offensive player there,” said Asiata, who had 36 yards on 13 attempts last Sunday in defeat by New England. “All we’re going to do is just move forward and just have his back, but at the same time just play football. That’s our job. It’s our turn to just man up.” The plan is to play both Asiata

Vikings running back Matt Asiata, an undrafted third-year player with 62 career carries, will be the starter on Sunday. With Adrian Peterson gone indefinitely from the team, Minnesota is scurrying to find replacements for his productivity. and McKinnon, with an eye toward who has “the hot hand,” Turner said. “We still want to run the football. We still want to have play-action passes,” coach Mike Zimmer said, adding: “We will continually try to use the players’ strengths that we have and go from there. Obviously, it will change some.” For quarterback Matt Cassel, particularly. He struggled last week, throwing four interceptions, but he shrugged off a reporter’s question Thursday about additional pressure. “We can’t let that be our sole identity, that we’ve lost Adrian,” Cassel said. Peterson has missed 10 games since his career began in 2007. The Vikings actually haven’t fared that badly when he’s been out, totaling 1,323 yards and

13 touchdowns on 285 rushes. That’s an average of more than 4.6 yards per attempt. Their record in those games is 4-6. But there’s also the matter of moving on without one of the team’s inspirational leaders. There’s been no denying this week from teammates that Peterson’s presence has been missed and will continue to be as long as he’s out. The message, though, in preparation for Sunday has been clear. “The Saints aren’t going to feel sorry for us,” Cassel said. Zimmer has tried to remind the Vikings not to do more than they’re asked or capable of, in light of the loss of such an important player. That’s what happened, he said, during the loss to the Patriots. “We’ve worked real hard this week about getting back

to basics and understanding there’s times when you make plays in the game, but the game has to come to you,” Zimmer said. Cassel acknowledged his role in not only ensuring the offense runs smoothly. A veteran, he’s helping the players around him stay focused during a whirlwind week, when it would’ve been impossible to ignore the extra media attention and unexpected departure of Peterson. “I think that it’s really important as we move forward. We do have a young, impressionable team. I think that the main thing is trying to block out the noise on the outside, because there is a lot of it going on right now,” Cassel said. “You can’t get too caught up in that. You have to stay focused on the task at hand.”

Bucs stopped in Atlanta Hester sets record as Falcons romp to win BY PAUL NEWBERRY AP Sports Writer

ATLANTA – Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and highstepping Devin Hester led the Atlanta Falcons to one of the biggest wins in franchise history. Ryan threw for 286 yards and three touchdowns, Jones hauled in nine passes for 161 yards and a couple of scores, and Hester set an NFL record with his 20th return for a TD, as the Falcons routed the hapless Tampa Bay Bucca-

neers 56-14 on Thursday night. The Falcons (2-1) led 35-0 before the Buccaneers (0-3) picked up a first down. Ryan and the other offensive starters left the game after Steven Jackson’s 3-yard touchdown run made it 49-0 before the midway point of the third quarter. Atlanta built a stunning 56-0 lead heading to the fourth quarter. With the Falcons already up 28-0, Hester took a punt at his own

44, found a seam up the middle of the field and zipped around the last man with a chance to tackle him, punter Michael Koenen. The 56-yard play was Hester’s 20th career return for a touchdown, breaking the mark he shared with former Falcons star Deion Sanders. Hester high-stepped the last 10 yards or so, his left hand bobbing behind his ear – a tribute to Sanders’ signature move.

SCOREBOARD

This date in the NFL

CONTINUED FROM B1

It’s a history in which he said he grew up in an abusive environment in which he said his mother was physically and sexually abused, and in which Marshall said his grandmother “whupped” him with an extension cord and a switch – sometimes even sending him to the tree to get the switch. But in a time when the NFL has fallen on hard times, and when Marshall’s past was again cast into the spotlight Wednesday by prominent Atlanta attorney Gloria Allred, Marshall said Thursday that while the league’s current climate is “shame”, he stands behind what the league

and Commissioner Roger Goodell are trying to do to combat the issue. It’s a problem, however, that Marshall insists is bigger than football. Too often, Marshall said Thursday, people are too quick to play judge and jury when they don’t have all the facts – something he believes has happened in the past 2 weeks when some of the NFL’s biggest stars, namely Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice and Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, have found themselves square in spotlight of high-profile abuse charges. But for Marshall, who himself has been at the center of a series of domestic abuse cases in the past, casting judgment squarely on NFL

players and the league itself won’t make the issue go away. “[Domestic violence] is not [only] a problem in the NFL – it’s an epidemic in our world,” Marshall said at Halas Hall, where nearly 50 media members and 12 television cameras covered Marshall’s press conference. “It’s not the NFL’s job to raise men. We’re kidding ourselves if we think it’s the NFL’s job to take boys from college and raise them to men. “[Domestic violence] is a problem in our marriages, a problem in our communities, a problem in the way we coach children and parenting – that’s where it starts. It doesn’t start with the NFL, it doesn’t start with the government, it starts

at home.” Marshall normally speaks to the media on Thursday each week, but wasn’t scheduled to address reporters until Friday because the Bears played on the West Coast Sunday night. But after an ESPN E:60 profile that originally aired 2 years ago was re-broadcast Tuesday night, Marshall – who took to his Twitter feed to voice his opposition to the piece – called a press conference to address the situation. Marshall walked into the Halas Hall media room carrying a stack of papers – copies of court documents and let ters used over the past 7 years. Marshall said the documents are all public record and were provided to ESPN for a profile he

said was initially pitched to him to promote his football camp and charitable work. Marshall maintains that ESPN had the packet of information he made available on Thursday, but said that the network chose not to use it. Instead, he said that ESPN chose to tell “its own story”, leaving him to defend himself on Thursday. It’s a course of action that Marshall said he has elected not to use over the past 7 years, and during allegations of domestic abuse in 2007 and 2008 when he played with the Denver Broncos. Marshall was suspended for three games in 2008, but that punishment was later reduced to one game.

Petty planning to stick with two drivers Loss of Ambrose as driver, Stanley as sponsor doesn’t deter team BY JENNA FRYER AP Auto Racing Writer

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Richard Petty Motorsports insisted Wednesday it is committed to running two cars in 2015, despite losing driver Marcos Ambrose and primary sponsor Stanley in the span of 5 days. Ambrose said last weekend he is returning to his native Australia and will run V8 Supercars for Roger Penske. His sponsor, Stanley, said Wednesday it is moving to Joe Gibbs Racing to sponsor Carl Edwards for 12 races. Stanley brand DeWalt will sponsor Matt Kenseth for six races. “We are excited to

season qualified for the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship in RPM’s No. 43 Ford. The team is looking for a driver and sponsor to take over the No. 9 Ford. RPM said it will continue its relationship with current manufacturer partner Ford Racing, and continue its services contract with Roush Fenway Racing and Roush Yates Engines. Twisted Tea Brewing Co. will continue its primary sponsorship of the No. 9 team in 2015, as the RPM marketing and new business team continues various discussions with several companies, the team said.

Astrograph Get out and join people who share your passions Friday, September 19, 2014 It’s time to take action. You know what you want, so stop wasting your energy and start turning your dream into a reality. Planning is useful, but only if you follow through. Stop waiting for someone else to do the work for you. Don’t stop until you reach your goal. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Get out and join people who share your passions. Whether it is dancing, hiking, music or another pursuit, you’ll find a group of like-minded souls to join. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Do things your own way and present your ideas with confidence. Your charisma is high and will help you garner interest from all sorts of unexpected parties. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Concentrate on your personal issues. Envy and jealousy of others’ accomplishments will lead to frustration and disappointment. Focus on your strengths, not your weaknesses. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Love is in the stars. You may be feeling exuberant, but don’t be careless. Overspending and

overindulgence are not a replacement for discipline and discretion. Entice others with your charm, not your money. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Don’t postpone dealing with urgent financial or legal issues. Trust your intuition address these matters promptly. Staying fit and healthy will reduce the chance of minor illnesses. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You are not getting the whole story. There will be a difference between what you see and what you hear. Someone is likely to mislead or discredit you. Do your own fact-finding. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You will discover a unique way of improving your job prospects. Act on any opportunity that could advance your status. Prove your talent through demonstration to those in higher positions. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You will be amazed at the results you achieve with an innovative project. Your powers of persuasion are strong, so enlist others to help you with your ideas.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Diplomacy will take you a long way today. Stubbornness will get you nowhere and may make things worse. Work toward a compromise. Be tolerant and understanding. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -A romantic relationship will take an unexpected turn for the better. This is not the time to sit on the sidelines. Let your heart guide you down the right path. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- If you are discontented with the situation at home, do some soul-searching. It’s probable that you are part of the problem. Be prepared to apologize and compromise. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your nerves will be a little strained. Don’t abandon your ambitions. Be ready to showcase your abilities so that someone who can improve your career will see your potential.
