PROPHETSTOWN

Instigation under investigation Man with record, almost $200K in medical bills says he was jumped BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 525

PROPHETSTOWN – Eugene Pashon is not making himself out to be an angel, but he says he deserves justice after a number of men attacked him outside a Prophetstown bar in late September. State police say they are still investigating. In the early morning hours of Sept. 28, Pashon said, he got into a fistfight

with a man in a parking lot near Kuel’s Pub, 213 Washington St. “When you’re drinking, you don’t make the best decisions,” said Pashon, who lives in Prophetstown. He said five men approached him and started beating him up. The 30-year-old said he remembers nothing after that because he got knocked out. Pashon was taken to CGH Medical Center in Sterling, then flown to a hospital in Peoria.

He said he suffered brain injuries, racking up $196,000 in medical bills. Since the fight, he has heard that others have claimed they were acting in self-defense, but he said that is hardly possible, given that it was five people against one. Pashon acknowledged he doesn’t have the best history. In 2012, he pleaded guilty to aggravated battery of a police officer. INSTIGATION CONTINUED ON A4

STATE LEGISLATURE PENSIONS

POW/MIA TREE-LIGHTING

68-bulb salute

Fallout looms in 2014 Balance of power could shift in General Assembly BY KERRY LESTER The Associated Press

VFW commander Tom Bushman lights one of 68 lights on a Christmas tree Saturday night representing the Illinois soliders that are still unaccounted for during times of war. This is the 25th year the Rock River Valley POW/MIA chapter has held the tree-lighting ceremony.

SPRINGFIELD – While Illinois Republicans have made solving the state’s pension crisis their issue for years, far fewer GOP lawmakers than expected supported the watershed package of reforms passed by the Legislature Tuesday. Only 15 House Republicans – a third of the 47-member caucus – voted for the $160 billion savings plan that was jointly crafted by Democratic and Republican legislative leaders, as did 10 of the Senate’s 19 GOP members. With at least one major campaign donor lobbying against the package and concerns about giving Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn a gift for his re-election campaign, Republican leaders in each chamber faced a challenge that grew more complicated as the vote neared. More Democrats, in turn, stepped forward to compensate, even though the plan was bitter medicine for unions representing state workers, their usual allies and campaign supporters. “I think everyone feels unhappy about the choice we faced. I don’t think anybody felt there was joy in a yes vote,” said House Democratic Majority Leader Barbara Flynn Currie. Now that the votes are cast, lawmakers face the consequences in the 2014 election campaign. While legislative leaders would have strategized over how to protect vulnerable members from casting a difficult vote, the fallout could have impact on the balance of power in the General Assembly if Democrats sacrifice enough seats next year to lose their thin supermajorities in each chamber.

NEWMAN HIGH SCHOOL

Student of the Month Nathaniel Edison N

athaniel Edison, 17, a Newman Central Catholic High School senior, is the October Student of the Month. Her parents are Robert and Judith Edison. Her sister is Kristina Edison, 25, and Jeremy Edison, 21. Favorite class: Calculus, because it is a great class to broaden your understanding of the world and how it works on a mathematical level. Top teacher: Mrs. Ann Propheter â&#x20AC;&#x201C; precalculus (junior year) and calculus. She thoroughly explains everything, gives real-life examples of complex mathematical ideas, and will always be willing to help you get a better understanding of topics, if you go to her for help. Extracurriculars: Math Club, Scholastic Bowl, golf team, Teens Living True Club, Kairos leader, religious education aide for St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in Sterling, Yolight (Sacred Heartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Youth Group), altar server, Extraordinary Minister, Sacristan at school Masses. After graduation: I plan on going to a 4-year university; I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know for sure where yet. I plan on studying mathematics and/or business to possibly one day become an actuary. BFF: I have a lot of good friends, but having to choose a best

would be Tyler Verbout. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been neighbors and friends since before kindergarten and, even though it sounds clichĂŠ, I know that we will always have each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backs. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also got a really good sense of humor, albeit a strange one. Favorite singer or musical group: Skillet Favorite actor: Morgan Freeman Favorite movie: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Star Warsâ&#x20AC;? and, if I have to choose a favorite from the series, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Empire Strikes Backâ&#x20AC;? Hobbies: Reading, video games, drawing and golfing Favorite game or outdoor activity: Golf Favorite food: Pizza Biggest fear: Death or losing those close to me Least favorite class: Physics What makes your blood boil? Technology. I love the advances it makes in our lives, but whenever it breaks or doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work right, I just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand it. What kind of music makes your skin crawl? Rap Where are some of the places you like to hang out? Just at friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; houses. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more about the people youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re with than the place youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at. What is the key to surviving high school? Work hard and stay focused on your goals, but at the

think it would be cool to trade places with the president for a day, because I think it would be interesting to lead the country. But I would never want that responsibility or stress for all my life, or for even just 4 years. Trading spaces: Well, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always wanted to see the pyramids of Egypt, but given the state of that area right now, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d probably go to France instead. Just to test my high schoollevel French skills, and I also hear the foodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really good. Read this: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Life of Pi,â&#x20AC;? by Yann Martel. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about a boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s struggle for survival in a lifeboat as he crosses the Pacific Ocean. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a captivating story that will grip you from the beginning, and at the end it really gets you to think about life â&#x20AC;&#x201C; something a good book should do. Shout out: To my family who sacrifices so much for me and to all my friends both at Newman and Sterling. Thanks to all you guys! I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be here without you.

same time, take time to enjoy it and make friends. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fast 4 years, and it shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be taken for granted. Useless knowledge? Well, all knowledge can have use to certain people, so nothing is truly useless. But personally, since Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never been that big of a science fan, I guess learning some of those theories seemed unimportant for my future. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in the dictionary next to: Nerd. I think people would describe me this way, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always quoting something: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Batman,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Star Wars,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spongebob,â&#x20AC;? or some other nerdy thing. These are the things I like, so I figured embrace it, rather than try and change who I am. Secret twin: When I was younger and had round glasses, a lot of people said I looked like Harry Potter. Personal trivia: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not saying Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Batman, but nobodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever seen Batman and me in the same room together. But seriously, I love superhero movies and games, and one day, I want to go to ComicCon. Dream job: Author. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always had an interesting imagination, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be like to have the ability to use words to capture that, so that others could enjoy it, and I could convey a message.

He said he got into a scuffle with the officer during a DUI arrest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I apologized to the officer,â&#x20AC;? he said. Even before the Sept. 28 fight, Pashon said, he suffered from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and cerebral palsy. Now, he is experiencing memory loss from the injuries he suffered in the fight, he said. He said authorities are telling him only that the investigation is ongoing. Prophetstown police responded to the fight, but the state police have taken over the case, because they have greater investigative capabilities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is an open case,â&#x20AC;? state police Sgt. Corey Peck said last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very limited in what we can release. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking with people. There is an active investigation.â&#x20AC;? The case, he said, has been difficult. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a bar scene,â&#x20AC;? Peck said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most people have different versions of what went on.â&#x20AC;? Once the investigation is finished, he said, the state police will send its report to the Whiteside County stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office, which prosecutes crimes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do that sooner rather than later,â&#x20AC;? Peck said.

John was a veteran of the Vietnam War, having served in the Air Force. Following that time period, he began traveling with Rudy Hunterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s band. This brought him to Sterling, where he enjoyed the people and community so much that he made it his permanent home. He married Mary E. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lizâ&#x20AC;? Woodard on Oct. 31, 2003, in Sterling. JJ was a much-loved and talented singer and musician, playing the saxophone and flute with various local bands, and always going out of his way to make sure people were having a good time. He had worked at John A. Loos & Sons for 15 years, and after his retirement, he worked part-time at Menards in Sterling. JJ had a cheerful word

for everybody he saw, and touched countless lives with his optimism and joy for life. Surviving is his wife, Liz of Sterling; his son, Bradley Brooks of Omaha, Neb.; his mother, Bertha Jones, and his brother, Ronald (Paula) Brooks, both of Philadelphia; numerous nieces, nephews, and great-nieces; as well the great bond of love he had with all of his inlaws.

Unions likely to challenge plan in court FALLOUT

CONTINUED FROM A1

The overall Democratic majorities are considered safe, given the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Democratic drawn political districts. But Democrats hold just slim, three-fifths supermajorities in the House, where they have 71 of 118 seats, and in the Senate, where they hold 40 of 59 seats, giving them veto-proof cushions to pass legislation. Those margins could become even more valuable if a Republican defeats Quinn next year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surprise me for the Democrats to lose a few seats in the House,â&#x20AC;? said Kent Redfield, professor emeritus at the University of Illinois Springfield, noting â&#x20AC;&#x153;the pension thing does not help.â&#x20AC;? After years of inaction and delay in the General Assembly, the final vote in favor of pension reform offered some surprises. Three of four GOP gubernatorial candidates, prominent members of the business community, as well U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk, the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top elected Republican â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all came out in opposition to the legislation, most saying it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go far enough in saving the state money.

An ugly word in our language J

Driver charged in bicyclistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death

ustin Coltrain, who is charged with a hate crime in an August fight in Ogle County, says he is not a racist. But Coltrain, who is white, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help his case when he used the N-word at least twice in an interview recently with Sauk Valley Mediaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Matt Mencarini. The jail recorded the phone interview. Coltrain said that when he uses the word, he isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily referring to someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race. But thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no getting around it: The word is an ugly one. Some blacks also use the word. That, too, is detestable, and civil

rights leaders, including Al Sharpton, have said so. A few months ago, we reported on a discrimination lawsuit filed against the village of Lyndon by a former employee who is black. He claimed other employees called him the N-word. In the story, we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t spell out the word. One reader objected

in an online comment: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Really had to use â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;N-wordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;? We already know what it means, so just say it instead of babying the readers with this politically correct mantra. We can be adults about it.â&#x20AC;? Many people decry political correctness, but actually practice it themselves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Political correctnessâ&#x20AC;? is a fancy term for â&#x20AC;&#x153;courtesy.â&#x20AC;? Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you sometimes soften your language to avoid offending others? In my private life, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard white people use the N-word. A couple of years ago, a woman used the word at a barbecue. I objected. She stood her ground.

In 2005, when a man used the word a couple of times at a party, I stayed silent. I lacked the courage to challenge him. No one else did, either. Has Coltrain become so comfortable using the N-word because it offends no one in his circle? Is it because blacks make up only 1 percent of the population in Ogle County? Or is it because he does not realize how bad the word is? David Giuliani is a news editor for Sauk Valley Media. You can reach him at dgiuliani@ saukvalley.com or 800-798-4085, ext. 525.

ROCK ISLAND

Students helps police with cold case from October 1990 Forensic geology may show where body was buried ROCK ISLAND (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Four days after he was reported missing in October 1990, Jerry Wolkingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chevrolet Suburban was found in the parking lot of the Quad City International Airport. Investigators found blood inside and outside the vehicle, along with dirt and mud. There was no evidence Mr. Wolking left on a flight. Fast forward to the spring of 2013. For 23 years, a sack of evidence remained in the Moline Police Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s evidence locker, evidence that today could be the key to solving the assumed murder. On Nov. 25, Detectives Michael Griffin and Scott Williams were inside Augustanaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fryxell Geology Museum with Professor Michael Wolf and his student, Grant Wick.

Since the spring of 2013, Detective Griffin has been working with the professor and the student to try to solve the case by means of forensic geology. Detective Griffin has photos of Mr. Wolkingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Suburban when it was found 23 years ago at the airport. Some of the pictures show the trailer hitch ball mount of the vehicle caked in dirt and mud. That was unusual for Mr. Wolking to have that on his vehicle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His truck had soil compacted on it,â&#x20AC;? Detective Griffin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For background, Jerry Wolking, he was a very clean person. He was president of a car club. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He kept his vehicle in very immaculate condition.â&#x20AC;? Numerous leads were followed at the time of Mr. Wolkingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disappearance. The blood in the vehicle was identified as Mr. Wolkingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Detective Griffin said, but the soil was a clue that had never, until now, been tested. Knowing the Illinois

State Crime Lab was overburdened with dayto-day cases, Detective Williams said it could be years before getting any kind of response on the Wolking case. Saying he was just playing a hunch, Detective Williams had a conversation with Mr. Wolf, a friend, and asked the professor if he thought something could be done with the bag of dirt collected from the vehicle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;actually, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot that can be done,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Detective Williams said. Detective Griffin said the detectives in 1990 probably didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what they had when collecting the soil as evidence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But, they had the wherewithal to secure the evidence,â&#x20AC;? Detective Griffin said. On a table inside a science lab at the college, the student and the professor explain some of science they are using to find out where Mr. Wolkingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body may have been buried. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

a first-time collaborative effort between the college and the Moline Police Department to try to solve a cold case. The work with Augustana comes after Moline police renewed its investigation into Mr. Wolkingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disappearance in April. Using information from interviews and other leads, the police used a backhoe and end loader, along with cadaver dogs from Madison, Wis., at a wooded area near Milan. In June, police focused the search in Green Valley Park in Moline. Detective Griffin said the suspect in the case had ties to the Milan location. He said some people have come forward, also giving statements that they saw a vehicle matching Mr. Wolkingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Suburban in the Green Valley area at the time of his disappearance. Mr. Wick has until May, the month he graduates, to complete his studies of the soil samples and, perhaps, help determine if either of those locations

is a likely place to search again. The professor pointed to a map of Rock Island County and the various soil compositions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If Grant does a good enough job and really identifies that material and says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a yellow silt loam and the location of interest is here, that could help pinpoint it,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Professor Wolf said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are different compositions of soil. Hopefully, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to identify and key it to the soil chart.â&#x20AC;? The soil on the Suburban can then be matched to the location where Mr. Wolkingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vehicle was. If the soil types match at the locations in question, the body could have been there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My goal is to try and connect it [dirt] with other soil samples weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve taken in the area of the suspect,â&#x20AC;? Mr. Wick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a new setup for Grant,â&#x20AC;? Professor Wolf said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been using the binocular scope to look at samples, and now a digital camera, which will

help document the similarities. We can put this evidence right next to the other samples and visually inspect.â&#x20AC;? For the Moline police, the work the student and professor have provided is critical to the investigation. Detective Griffin said he is in contact monthly with Mr. Wolkingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son and daughter in the area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They really want closure, obviously,â&#x20AC;? Detective Griffin said. As the student studies the dirt he was provided, which is now in different containers and bags, Detective Williams said the investigation gives the victimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family hope the deceased was not forgotten. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They know something bad happened,â&#x20AC;? Detective Williams said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you have knowledge of a homicide, you can be charged with concealment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The important thing is if you know about it, now is the time to come forward.â&#x20AC;?

A community Christmas tree was a new idea a century ago. The Telegraph, on Dec. 10, 1913, reported on plans for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Municipal Christmas Treeâ&#x20AC;? to be placed on the Lee County courthouse lawn in Dixon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The success of the plan seems assured,â&#x20AC;? a Telegraph editor wrote. year and the remembrance of the carols and the happy Christmas must cheer us as in olden times.

(INTSTOBRIDES Dixon girls who expect to get married during the holidays are offered the following suggestions: It is well to send out invitations along about this time, as it is best to prepare your friends in time, for when they receive invitations late, say only a week before the wedding, they are often out of funds, and the gifts would not be as costly or as numerous as if the â&#x20AC;&#x153;bidsâ&#x20AC;? are sent in plenty of time. The first part of December is a good time to have showers, and if you can keep â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em going until after the holidays, you may receive after Christmas a lot of gifts that others have found useless, and the chances are you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to buy anything for several months.

China has made an ominous move in claiming sovereignty over the air, and the Obama administration has appropriately responded with B-52 bombers. The unfolding conflict highlights the dark side of the Beijing regime, and reminds us all that growth of investment and trade has not removed political conflicts and military dangers. On Nov. 23, Beijing arbitrarily announced a new defense zone encompassing the Senkaku Islands. Those small land areas are occupied by Japan but are now claimed by China. The announcement stipulated that any aircraft entering the zone are subject to challenge. This includes planes only transiting the zone and not intending to enter Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national airspace, a departure from current international practice. On Nov. 26, the U.S. bombers flew through the zone, without incident. Secretary of State John Kerry and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel both have condemned Beijingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s threat to use force over the disputed islands, and the former also mentioned the wider threat to freedom of navigation essential to international peace. Today there is a range of serious maritime and related territorial disputes, concentrated in Asia but with broad international implications. Argentina, Britain, Brunei, China, the Philippines, Taiwan, Vietnam, and other nations are involved, and the United States is increasingly engaged. Vietnam charges that in May, a China vessel invaded â&#x20AC;&#x153;exclusive territorial watersâ&#x20AC;? and rammed a ship, endangering 15 Vietnamese fishermen aboard. Earlier in March, Vietnam accused China of shooting at a fishing boat and causing a fire. IN MID-MAY, President Benigno Aquino III of the Philippines issued a formal public apology for the killing of an unarmed Taiwanese fisherman in disputed waters. Tensions have been escalating for months. In June 2012, a confrontation between Chinese and Philippine fishing boats near Scarborough Shoal threatened to become violent before both sides disengaged. China steadily expands in international power and influence, includ-

ing rapid construction of enormous new strategic naval capacities. Traditionally, this nation has been cautious in using military force for aggressive moves, but that may be changing. Also in June 2012, a political maritime confrontation occurred at the G20 Summit in Los Cabos, Mexico. Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner attempted publicly to hand British Prime Minister David Arthur I. Cameron Cyr documents regarding the disputed Falkland Islands. Cameron with characteristic cool deflected the grandstanding. THE FALKLANDS, in Argentina referred as the Malvinas Islands, was the site of a brief but extremely bitter war in 1982. The military regime in Buenos Aires seized the islands in a surprise move; British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher immediately reacted with determination to retake them. A British expedition recaptured the outpost in a remarkably impressive demonstration of military effectiveness. However, U.S. logistical support was vital. The British government remained committed to resolving the longrunning dispute with Argentina by referendum among the approximately 3,000 people living on the Falklands. The referendum vote in March indicated nearly universal desire to remain with Britain. Great Britain until World War II was paramount in maritime influence and power, and remains important. London is a global insurance industry center, populated by firms rooted initially in maritime salvage as well as shipping operations. Ocean commerce has generated deeply rooted and durable international law. Britain and the U.S. have an opportunity to work together, within existing regional and international institutions, to try to mitigate conflicts that increasingly entangle Asiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nations. At a minimum, that dangerous dimension should be receiving much more public discussion. Beijingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s declaration underscores those dangers. Note to readers: Arthur I.

Startups aim to replace eggs, chicken Backers say egg industry wastes energy, pollutes SAN FRANCISCO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The startup is housed in a garage-like space in San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s techheavy South of Market neighborhood, but it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like most of its neighbors that develop software, websites and mobilephone apps. Its mission is to find plant replacements for eggs. Inside, research chefs bake cookies and cakes, whip up batches of flavored mayonnaise and pan-fry omelets and French toast â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all without eggs. Funded by prominent Silicon Valley investors and Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Hampton Creek Foods seeks to disrupt a global egg industry that backers say wastes energy, pollutes the environment, causes disease outbreaks and confines chickens to tiny spaces. The company, which just started selling its first product â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Just Mayo mayonnaise â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at Whole Foods Markets, is part of a new generation of socalled food-tech ventures that aim to change the way we eat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing to indicate that this will be a trend that will end anytime soon,â&#x20AC;? said Anand Sanwal, CEO of CB Insights, a New York firm that tracks venture capital investment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sustainability and challenges to the food supply are pretty fundamental issues.â&#x20AC;? Venture capital firms, which invest heavily in early-stage technology companies, poured nearly $350 million into food-related startups last year, compared with less than $50 million in 2008, according to the firm. Plant-based alternatives to eggs, poultry and other meat could be good for the environment because

A San Francisco startup backed by Bill Gates believes they can. Hampton Creek Foods is scouring the planet for plants that can replace chicken eggs in everything from cookies to omelets to French toast. LEFT: Tetrick (left) watches as research and development chef Trevor Niekowal makes a plantbased scrambled egg at Hampton Creek Foods in San Francisco. it could reduce consumption of meat, which requires large amounts of land, water and crops to produce, backers say. It could also benefit peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health, especially in heavy meat-eating countries like the U.S., and reduce outbreaks of diseases such as avian flu, they say.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The biggest challenge is that people who consume a lot of meat really like meat, and to convince them to try something different may be extremely difficult,â&#x20AC;? said Claire Kremen, faculty co-director of the Berkeley Food Institute at the University of California, Berkeley.

The American Egg Board, which represents U.S. producers, said eggs canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be replaced. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our customers have said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not interested in egg substitutes. They want real, natural eggs with their familiar ingredients,â&#x20AC;? Mitch Kanter, executive director of the board-funded Egg

Nutrition Center, said in a statement. The industry has reduced its water use and greenhouse gas emissions, and hens are living longer due to better health and nutrition, he said. Hampton Creekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quest to replace the ubiquitous chicken egg is also

backed by PayPal cofounder Peter Thiel and Khosla Ventures, a venture capital fund started by Sun Microsystems cofounder Vinod Khosla. In its food lab, biochemists grind up beans and peer through microscopes to study their molecular structure, looking for plants that can fulfill the culinary functions of eggs. So far, the company has analyzed some 1,500 types of plants from more than 60 countries. The research has resulted in 11 â&#x20AC;&#x153;hits,â&#x20AC;? said Josh Tetrick, the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CEO. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our approach is to use plants that are much more sustainable â&#x20AC;&#x201C; less greenhouse gas emissions, less water, no animal involved and a whole lot more affordable â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to create a better food system,â&#x20AC;? said the former linebacker on West Virginia Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s football team. The companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first product â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the mayonnaise â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is sold for roughly the same price as the traditional variety. It soon hopes to start selling cookie dough and a batter that scrambles like eggs when fried in a pan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The egg is a miracle, so one of the hardest parts of replacing it is all the functions that it can do,â&#x20AC;? said Chris Jones, the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s culinary director of innovations and a former contestant on Bravo TVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Top Chef. While Hampton Creek takes aim at the egg, another Gates-backed company is targeting the chicken itself. Beyond Meat, located in Southern California, sells â&#x20AC;&#x153;chicken-free strips,â&#x20AC;? which have the taste and stringy texture of poultry but are made from plant protein. It is sold at Whole Foods and natural food stores. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also working on a product that mimics beef.

ILLINOIS

State legislators could bar drivers from using Google Glass Other states have introduced bills to ban use of device SPRINGFIELD (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Googleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new computerized glasses arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t on sale to the general public yet, but the devices already have lawmakers in Illinois and several other states concerned that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll become the latest deadly distraction for drivers. Illinois state Sen. Ira Silverstein filed legislation Tuesday to bar motorists from using the Google

Glass devices, which allow wearers to search the Internet, make phone calls and check email. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just another way people will be distracted,â&#x20AC;? the Chicago Democrat told the Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises newspapers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attention to the road should not be interrupted.â&#x20AC;? Legislators in Delaware, New Jersey and West Virginia have also introduced bills that would specifically ban driving with Google Glass. Google Glass features a thumbnail-size trans-

The technology will not be made widely available to the public until 2014, but about 10,000 â&#x20AC;&#x153;explorersâ&#x20AC;? received the glasses earlier this year as part of a tryout. One of those â&#x20AC;&#x153;explorersâ&#x20AC;? is already in trouble for driving while wearing the device. Cecilia Abadie, a California software developer, was pulled over in October on suspicion of going 80 mph in a 65 mph

charges in San Diego traffic court on Tuesday. In Illinois, Silversteinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s measure would piggyback on the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new law banning drivers from using cellphones unless theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re speaking with a hands-free device. In a statement, Google spokeswoman Anna

Richardson White said wearers should use the technology responsibly and make safety a priority. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More broadly, Glass is built to connect you more with the world around you, not distract you from it,â&#x20AC;? Richardson White said.

Gamer leaves wife on sidelines Dear Abby: I was laid off from work, but my husband, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Keith,â&#x20AC;? works full-time in a factory. We live with his parents. By the time Keith gets home from work and gets cleaned up, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to eat dinner. Immediately afterward, we always follow the same routine: We go in our bedroom and he goes on the computer to play video games, while I sit and watch TV and play on my phone. We love each other and rarely disagree about things, but this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fun for me. I have told Keith I feel ignored and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to do something WITH him. He says because our town is smallish, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a lot to do that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cost money. Keith is into the video games, so much so that when we first met, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d sit in his bedroom and play for hours on end. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re planning a vacation in the next month or so, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not like we do nothing at all. But I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to improve our situation.

I agree that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for you and your husband not to get into a rut. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why you need to budget so you CAN get out and have some fun together a few times a month.

U.S. Gov’t Issued coins go to residents in 99 IL counties

Vault Bags loaded with rarely seen U.S. Gov’t issued coins are actually being handed over to Illinois residents who find their county listed below, but only those who beat the 48 hour deadline are getting the Vault Bags of nearly 100 year old Gov’t issued coins for just $59 ILLINOIS - The phones are ringing off the hook. That’s because for the next 48 hours Vault Bags loaded with rarely seen Indian Head coins issued by the U.S. Gov’t nearly 100 years ago are being released to Illinois residents who find their county highlighted in black on the Distribution Map printed in today’s publication. Everyone is rushing to get the Vault Bags because each one is loaded with nearly a quarter pound of rarely seen Indian Head coins dating all the way back to the early 1900s. “It’s hard to tell how much these heavy Vault Bags could be worth someday. That’s because after they were filled with U.S. Gov’t issued coins, the bags were sealed for good,” said Timothy J. Shissler, Director of Vault Operations for the private World Reserve. Since this advertising announcement can’t stop collectors from hoarding all the rarely seen coins they can get, the World Reserve has imposed a strict limit of 10 Vault Bags per resident. That’s why it’s important that residents call the National Distribution Hotlines beginning at precisely 8:30am this morning. Everyone who does is getting the Vault Bags loaded with rarely seen coins issued by the U.S. Gov’t nearly 100 years ago for just $59 and shipping and handling, which is a real steal since just one scarce and highly collectible Indian Head coin alone could be worth up to hundreds of dollars in collector value. And here’s the best part. Everyone who claims four Vault Bags before all the money is gone is getting free shipping and free handling. “We’re bracing for all the calls because there are just hours left for residents to

Who gets the Vault Bags: Shown below are the Illinois counties that get the Vault Bags. If you live in one of the counties highlighted in black immediately call the National Distribution Hotline at: 1-866-211-7348 How much are the Vault Bags worth: Coin values always fluctuate and there are never any guarantees, but here’s why residents are rushing to claim the Vault Bags before they’re all gone. After the Vault Bags were loaded with rarely seen coins issued by the U.S. Gov’t they were sealed for good. That means there’s no telling what you’ll find until you sort through all the coins. So you better believe at just $ 59 and shipping the Vault Bag fee is a real steal, since just one scarce and highly collectible Indian Head coin alone could be worth up to hundreds of dollars in collector value. N RARELY SEEN U.S. COINS LEAVE VAULT: These packages containing Vault Bags loaded with valuable Indian Head coins issued by the U.S. Gov’t nearly 100 years ago are being moved from the private vaults of the World Reserve for immediate distribution to Illinois residents. get the Vault Bags,” Shissler said. So, Illinois residents who find their county highlighted in black on the Distribution Map below need to immediately call the National Distribution Hotlines before the 48-hour deadline ends to get the Vault Bags. If lines are busy keep trying, all calls will be answered. N

RARELY SEEN: YEAR VARIES 1913-1938

How to get the bags of U.S. Gov’t issued coins N U.S. GOV’T ISSUED COINS: These bags are loaded with rarely seen Indian Head coins that everyone is rushing to get for just $59. That’s because everyone who beats the 48-hour deadline to claim four bags is getting free shipping and free handling.

Shown to the left in black are the Illinois counties that get the Vault Bags. If you live in one of the counties highlighted in black immediately call the National Distribution Hotline before the 48-hour deadline ends at: 1-866-211-7348

Why is the Vault Bag fee so low: Because thousands of U.S. residents have missed the deadline to claim the money, the World Reserve has re-allocated Vault Bags that will be scheduled to be sent out in the next 48 hours. That means the money is up for grabs and now any resident who finds their county highlighted in black on the Distribution Map printed in today’s publication gets to claim the Vault Bags of money for themselves and keep all the U.S. Gov’t issued coins found inside. Each Vault Bag loaded with nearly a quarter pound of rarely seen Indian Head coins is set at $78 for residents who miss the deadline, but for those who beat the 48-hour deadline the Vault Bag fee is just $ 59 and the best part is everyone who claims four Vault Bags before all the money is gone is getting free shipping and free handling as long as they call the National Distribution Hotline before the deadline ends.

Trump suits may need gentle work

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

As regular readers know, I do a lot of bridge teaching. In the summer, I travel around the country running “bridge camps without tents.” They usually last three days, but I did one for only two days in Birmingham, Ala., in October. In the winter, I teach in Florida and my car gets almost as good a workout as I do. The first lesson I taught this season in Florida, early last month, featured deals in which declarer had to handle the trump suit with care. This week, let’s look at six of them. First, how should South

try to make four spades after West takes the first three tricks with his high clubs, then shifts to a heart? In the auction, South

might rebid three notrump, which works well here as long as North takes a spade finesse. And, yes, South might initially respond two spades, a strong jump shift showing 13-16 highcard points and either an excellent one-suiter or a good two-suiter with length in both responder’s suit and opener’s suit. South, who needs the rest of the tricks, must draw trumps without loss. With eight cards missing only the queen, declarer should finesse, not play for the drop – “eight ever.” But should he finesse immediately, or only after first cashing the ace? © 2013 UFS

CHICAGO

Schools transition â&#x20AC;&#x201C; smooth or rocky? Special education students have suffered, some teachers and student advocates say CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Devion Allen peers wistfully through a door window at the school he used to attend. Those who live outside his gritty, violence-plagued neighborhood might dismiss this towering brick building as just another failing urban school. But to the eighth grader, the school across the street from his momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s subsidized apartment was a haven â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;like a family,â&#x20AC;? he says. To the administrators of Chicago Public Schools, though, the neighborhood school was underutilized and underperforming â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one of 47 public schools that closed in the city in June, most of them in high-poverty neighborhoods with mostly minority populations. Two more will be phased out by the end of the school year. Allen left his school for the last time last summer, holding back tears as chaos and protests ensued. From that point on, the school, formerly known as Lafayette Elementary, became a symbol in a citywide and even national debate about the future course of public education. Soon, officials say, the empty building will likely house an arts high school operated as a contract school, publicly funded but privately run. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not fair,â&#x20AC;? Allen said.

He and many of his friends, meanwhile, have been shifted to a school about a half mile away, one that is smaller than their old school and jammed with twice as many students as it had last school year. Officials have dubbed it a â&#x20AC;&#x153;welcoming school,â&#x20AC;? the name given to the Chicago schools that have taken in students from closed buildings. The idea was to send displaced students to schools with better test scores, combining forces to give them a better shot at a good education. That appears to be happening at some of the combined schools, where those involved say theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making the best of a challenging situation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be OK. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be OK,â&#x20AC;? grandparent Dexter Leggin tells students and parents when he works at an after-school program at Melody Elementary, a welcoming school on the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s West Side. To lighten the mood and promote unity, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taken to calling the school â&#x20AC;&#x153;Melanoâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a combination of Melody and Delano Elementary, the closed school. In this instance, the school took the Melody name because it was the higherperforming school, but kept the Delano building because it was a better fit.

AP

A car passes the former Lafayette Elementary School in Chicago. Lafayette was one of 47 public schools in Chicago that closed because administrators deemed it underutilized and underperforming. Chicago Public Schools says it will become an arts high school, a contract school that is publicly funded but privately run. Leggin says that arrangement has helped. Overall, Chicago Public Schools officials say the transition has been going smoothly and insist that, as theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d hoped, most students are in a better situation than they were before. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve kept that promise,â&#x20AC;? said Denise Little, who leads the team that oversees the districtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s principals. Some teachers and parents at welcoming

schools, however, tell a very different story. They complain that overcrowding and an overall lack of support is making the transition rough. The Chopin School, where Allen attends, is so packed that the staff there has had to give up the very amenities this transition was supposed to provide â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the computer lab, the library and art and music rooms. The schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s psychologist, occupational therapist

and speech pathologist also are working in windowless, unvented spaces that were formerly storage closets. Sometimes, students are tested there. Special education students also have suffered, say teachers and student advocates. At least one school that has dozens of new special ed students, the Courtenay Language Arts Center, has yet to set up a behavioral health team to assess those childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs in a faster,

more organized way, staff members say. And teacher Michael Flynn says his school is using a room not much larger than one of those closets as a special education room for 13 children because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s simply no other option. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not enough space. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not enough resources,â&#x20AC;? said Flynn, a longtime seventh-grade literature and social studies teacher at the James Otis World Language Academy, a welcoming school northwest of downtown Chicago. Despite the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name, the world languages teacher was among those who lost a classroom because of the space constraints and, instead, travels from room to room. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an atmosphere, Flynn says, that has done little to help the colliding worlds meld â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and that he and others fear might doom some welcoming schools to the same fate as those that closed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all this pressure to outperform yourself from last year, even though youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve taken in all these kids from tough situations,â&#x20AC;? Flynn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how you do that.â&#x20AC;?

UKRAINE

Storm along East Coast Largest anti-government protest dumps snow, snarls traffic since 2004 shuts down capital PHILADELPHIA (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A powerful storm that crept across the country dumped a mix of snow, freezing rain and sleet on the Mid-Atlantic region and headed northeast Sunday, turning NFL playing fields in Pennsylvania into winter wonderlands, threatening as much as a foot of snow in Delaware and New Jersey and raising concerns about a messy morning commute. The storm forced the cancellation of thousands of flights across the U.S. and slowed traffic on roads, leading to a number of accidents, including a fatal crash on the Pennsylvania Turnpike near Morgantown that led to a series of fenderbenders involving 50 cars. What was forecast in the Philadelphia area to be a tame storm system with about an inch of snow followed by rain mushroomed into a full-blown snowstorm that snarled traffic along Interstate 95 in Pennsylvania from the Delaware to New Jersey state lines. Paul Jones, 24, a youth hockey coach from Warminster in the Philadelphia suburbs, was on his way to a game in Lancaster when he got stuck â&#x20AC;&#x201C; along with his fiancee, another coach and three players â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in a major backup on the turnpike. The roadway was â&#x20AC;&#x153;snow-covered, slick,â&#x20AC;?

Thousands pour into streets, calling for presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ouster

AP

Juan Carlos ties a rope to his vehicle Sunday as he tries to dig out of snow along Lancaster Pike in Wilmington, Del. The truck spun out of control as the first snow of the season moved into the area. Jones said in an interview from the car, where he was a passenger and had been at a standstill for more than an hour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are in and outâ&#x20AC;? of their vehicles, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kids are having a snowball fight on the side of the road, making snow angels, people are walking their dogs.â&#x20AC;? The National Weather Service said the low pressure system from North Carolina north to New England was being fed by disturbances from the southwest and moist air off the Atlantic. The forecast called for the wintry mix to continue through Sunday, turning to rain early Monday. Total snow accumulation in some sections of southeastern Pennsylva-

nia, Delaware and southern New Jersey could reach 9 to 11 inches, while other areas could see as little as an inch or 2, said Valerie Meola, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Mount Holly, N.J. The snow fell so heavily in Philadelphia on Sunday that yard markers at Lincoln Financial Field â&#x20AC;&#x201C; where the Eagles beat the Detroit Lions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; were completely obscured. It was almost as bad in Pittsburgh, where the snow intensified after opening kickoff. Philadelphia fan Dave Hamilton, of Ivyland, layered up for the game, wearing an Eagles shirt topped with an Eagles sweatshirt and Eagles winter coat.

KIEV, Ukraine (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Hundreds of thousands of protesters poured into the streets of Ukraineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital on Sunday, toppling a statue of former Soviet leader Vladimir Lenin and blockading key government buildings in an escalating standoff with the president over the future of the country. The biggest demonstration in the former Soviet republic since Ukraineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pro-democracy Orange Revolution in 2004 led the government to fire back. It announced an investigation of opposition leaders for an alleged attempt to seize power and warned the demonstrators they could face criminal charges. The West pressed for a peaceful settlement.

Hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians flooded the center of Kiev, the capital, to demand President Viktor Yanukovychâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ouster after he ditched ties with the European Union in favor of Russia and sent police to break up an earlier protest in the nearly three-week standoff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ukraine is tired of Yanukovych. We need new rules. We need to completely change those in power,â&#x20AC;? said protester Kostyantyn Meselyuk, 42. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Europe can help us.â&#x20AC;?

er Vitali Klitschko told reporters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People will not tolerate when they are beaten, when their mouths are shut, when their principles and values are ignored.â&#x20AC;? As darkness fell, the conflict escalated further with protesters blockading key government buildings in Kiev with cars, barricades and tents. The protests have had an anti-Russian component because Russia had worked aggressively to derail the EU deal with threats of trade retaliation against Ukraine. About half a mile from the main square, one group of anti-government protesters toppled the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s landmark statue of Lenin and decapitated it Sunday evening. Protesters then took turns beating on the torso of the fallen statue, while others lined up to collect a piece of the stone. The crowd chanted â&#x20AC;&#x153;Glory to Ukraine!â&#x20AC;?

Northern Illinois is going to sunny San Diego. The Huskies will play Utah State in the Poinsettia Bowl at 8:30 p.m. on Dec. 26 at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, home of the Chargers. The game will be televised on ESPN. With a win in Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mid-American Conference Championship, the Huskies would have earned a BCS bid, but those chances ended after a stunning 47-27 upset loss to Bowling Green in Detroit. NIU got to the Poinsettia Bowl because the MAC had a secondary agreement with the bowl game this year. The matchup was originally scheduled to be a Mountain West team vs. Army, but the Black Knights only have three wins heading into next weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game against Navy and wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be bowl eligible.

DIXON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Kylian Lally went 40-9 last season, and was nearly a state place-winner. The scary thing is that Lally thinks heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s significantly better this year. The Dixon High School senior improved to 8-0 on the young season with three more dominant wins at Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dixon Duals. He pinned his first two opponents, and almost pinned the third several times in a 16-2 major decision. Lally qualified for state for the first time last season, going 2-2 in the Class 2A 138-pound bracket before getting knocked out in the wrestleback quarterfinals.

Packers find footing in snow Green Bay rallies past Falcons to snap 5-game skid BY GENARO C. ARMAS !03PORTS7RITER

GREEN BAY, Wis. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A smattering of boos cascaded down on the Green Bay Packers at the half, trailing by double digits on a bone-chilling afternoon at Lambeau Field. This wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a good sign for a team that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t played well late in games, especially without injured quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Coach Mike McCarthy went into the locker room wondering how much energy his players had, with the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playoff prospects in jeopardy. Green Bay responded with its most complete performance in weeks. Matt Flynn threw for 258 yards, and a maligned defense forced a key fourth-quarter turnover in a 22-21 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday that ended a five-game winless stretch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good to win, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a while. Forgot what it felt like,â&#x20AC;? McCarthy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll say this â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I really like the football team, particularly at halftime, coming in, getting booed at home, and just the energy in the locker room. They never blinked, they stayed the course.â&#x20AC;? It came down to defense in the final few minutes of a nail-biting fourth quarter. Mike Nealâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sack forced Matt Ryan to fumble, and defensive lineman Johnny Jolly scooped up the loose ball and celebrated with a little belly dance. Four plays later, Flynn found Andrew Quarless for a 2-yard touchdown pass for the 22-21 lead for the Packers (6-6-1) with about 12 minutes left. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We needed to have fun. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we did today,â&#x20AC;? Jolly said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We went out there and left everything that we had, and made plays and had fun.â&#x20AC;? Quarlessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; TD completed a comeback from an 11-point halftime deficit, and whipped the bundledup fans into a frigid frenzy. It was 9 degrees when the game started, with a wind chill of minus-1. The stadium looked as if it was encased in a snow globe at times, with much of the game played while light, powdery snowflakes gently fell to the worn turf. Atlanta kicker Matt Bryant missed a 52-yard field goal

The Falconsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Matt Ryan fumbles as he is hit by the Packersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pass rush during the second half Sunday in Green Bay, Wis. The Packers recovered the fumble, and went on to win 22-21. Star of the game:-ATT&LYNN 0ACKERS  FOR PASSING YARDS 4$ ).4 Up next:0ACKERSAT#OWBOYS PM3UNDAY TV:&OX attempt into the wind with 6:42 left. The Falcons (3-10) got to the 33 with 2 minutes left, but Tony Gonzalez dropped a short pass from Ryan under tight coverage by Jarrett Bush. The Falcons, who play home games at the Georgia Dome, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think weather was as much of a factor as the missed opportunities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk about one specific play that was the difference,â&#x20AC;? coach Mike Smith said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had our chances to make some plays in all three phases, and we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.â&#x20AC;? Flynn finished 24-for-32 with

an interception in his second start for Rodgers, who has been out since fracturing his left collarbone during a 27-20 loss to the Bears on Nov. 4. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a struggle ever since for Green Bay, which fell from first place in the NFC North to fighting to stay in the playoff chase. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We played our best football in the second half, and as a coach, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you look for in your football team,â&#x20AC;? McCarthy said. Ryan finished 20-for-35 for 206 yards with two touchdowns and an interception, while Steven Jackson had 71 yards rushing on 15 carries. Linebacker Sean Weatherspoon added a 71-yard interception return with 23 seconds remaining in the second quarter gave the Falcons a 21-10 lead and prompted some fans to voice their displeasure.

NFL | BEARS

Thanks, Lions! Bears in better shape

S

omehow you just knew the NFC North wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to be decided with three or four weeks left in the season, and the Detroit Lions confirmed it for us in exactly the fashion weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come to expect from them. To be fair, the conditions for the Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 34-20 victory over the Lions on Sunday were like something out of a Disney movie with the snow falling and piling up far faster than it could be blown off the field. But with a 14-0 lead with just under 20 minutes to play and then a 20-14 lead a minute into the fourth quarter, the Lions surrendered 20 unanswered points and threw the door wide open for the Bears to climb back into a first-place tie in the division with a victory Monday night over the Cowboys. It is hard to say just how good the NFC East-leading Eagles are, but they held the Lionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offense to just one 2-yard touchdown run from Joique Bell all day. The Lionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; other two scores came on punt return and kickoff return touchdowns from Jeremy Ross. Of course, the Bears have the Eagles to worry about themselves in a couple of weeks, but

NBA all that matters now is if they do their jobs Monday night, they are tied for the division lead with just a losing tiebreaker to overcome with three games to play. The difference between making up one game with three to play and two with four to play is like night and day. If the Bears peek over their shoulders theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see all that hot air on their necks is coming from the Packers, who are actually in better shape than they are in the division race, just a half game behind the 7-6 Lions at 6-6-1. The Packers close at Dallas, with Pittsburgh at home and then at Soldier Field. And now the Bears are in a horse race, and a dogfight. They still probably need to win out to win the division. With Cleveland, Philly and the Packers left, it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be easy. But they

Lions receiver Calvin Johnson (left) is defended by the Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Patrick Chung on Sunday in Philadelphia. With the Lionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 34-20 loss, the Bears are right back in the thick of the NFC North race should they beat the Cowboys tonight. now have a ton more control of their own destiny than they did going into Sunday. Where is the best shot for the Lionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; loss the Bears still need? Probably next Monday night with the Ravens â&#x20AC;&#x201C; also in a must-win situation in their own playoff chase â&#x20AC;&#x201C; whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve won three straight and four of their past five (the loss, of course, at Soldier Field) and will be coming to Ford Field. After that, the Lions

get the Giants at home and go to Minnesota the last day of the season, where it appears the Vikings will be without Adrian Peterson. For what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth, the last time the Lions won three straight was Weeks 14 through 16 of the 2011 season. As for the Packers, the Bears have nothing to worry about. If they become the problem, the Bears can take care of them themselves on the final day of the season.

Seventh grade was a different story. Lally qualified for state and got a big boost of confidence. Lally comes from a long line of successful wrestlers on his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s side â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Butlers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She had five brothers that all wrestled,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of them went to Newman, and some went to Dixon. One of them [Tom Butler] is up on the wall in the wrestling room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every day, I would see that up on the wall. I wanted to be up there with him, so it helped me push myself in practice.â&#x20AC;? Lally helped Dixon, which was 0-5 coming into Saturday, nearly

go 3-0 on the day. The Dukes (2-6) opened with a 46-24 win over Knoxville, then edged Boylan 37-36. In its final dual of the day, Dixon led 36-31 heading into the 285pound match, but Galesburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ricky Cantu pinned Ryan Troutman to give the Silver Streaks a 37-36 win. Sterling also went 2-1 on the day. The Golden Warriors (5-3) began with a 45-30 win over Boylan, then dropped a 39-30 decision to Sandwich, and thumped Knoxville 65-11. Dixon wrestlers joining Lally at 3-0 were Trent Brinkmeier and Connor Sperling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My kids really stepped up and wrestled well,â&#x20AC;? Dukes coach Chris Bishop said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fighting.

Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting better each time weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re out there. For a young team, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you do. You scrap to get where you can win, and you go from there. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really positive day for us.â&#x20AC;? Sterling got three pins from Nick Terronez, and three wins apiece from Will Canales and Cariel Beasley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The biggest thing we found today is that we have a lot of heart,â&#x20AC;? said Warriors coach Charlie Bishop, who cited three of his wrestlers for their contributions on and off the mat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got the three amigos, I call them, at 145 [Andrew Garcia], 152 [Terronez] and 160 [Jaime Briseno].

On the defensive side for the Rockets, the Crusadersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; height beat the athleticism and quickness of the Rocketsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; guards. Lutheran was able to execute its offense without much of a hassle, and often found open shots. If the Crusaders missed, second- and thirdchance opportunities were not uncommon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, we wanted to pressure the basketball,â&#x20AC;? Rockets coach Craig Mammosser said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and not allow them easy opportunities at the offensive end because of the size difference that they did have. We needed to move the basketball and execute with the ball on offense coming in. We wanted to set a lot of screens, and we just did none of that.â&#x20AC;? Rock Falls junior Chelsi Blair hit a pair of free throws after Lutheran coach Joni Larson was assessed a technical foul for being out of her coaching box to get the

Rockets within one with 4:28 remaining in the first quarter. Lutheran then closed out the the quarter on a 10-0 run to make the score 16-5 Crusaders. A balanced Lutheran attack in the second quarter ultimately doomed the Rockets. The Crusaders rattled off 26 points, compared to the Rocketsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 14. A big factor in extending the lead was their length. Many of the Rocketsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; shots were affected, and the offense as a whole struggled as a result. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We tried to move that ball,â&#x20AC;? Rock Falls junior Bailey Schrader said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Get around them and be faster, because we play with four guards and one post usually. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard having to play people that are a few

i n c h e s taller than you, but we just have to move the ball better.â&#x20AC;? An a c r o batic layup Bailie by Kara Smith 2OCK&ALLS N e h k o r n , who finJUNIOR ished with a team-high 8 points, resulted in an andone free throw, and appeared to give the momentum to the Rockets. Lutheran quickly regained the momentum after an exchange of baskets with 3:50 remaining in the first half. A putback by Lutheran freshman Olivia Cattage marked the start of a 14-0 run that Rock Falls junior Bailie Smith ended by making free throws with 1 second remaining in the half. By that point, the deficit had increased by 12 points. Rock Fallsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense improved after halftime, but its offense once again suffered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our effort picked up a little bit,â&#x20AC;? said Mammosser. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It did on the

defensive end, at least. Offensively, we never got anything going all day. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what we shot, but it had to be real ugly, a really ugly number for what we shot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to pressure the ball full court and get into the passing lanes. We tried to deny the pass into the post as much as we could, and it was just way too easy for them.â&#x20AC;? As the last stanza wore on, it proved to be the best one for the Rockets, as they scored seven to cancel out seven points allowed. But the damage had already been done, as the length and height of the Crusaders was too much for the Rockets to handle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Well, it was hard, but you have to live up to the game,â&#x20AC;? Schrader said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They mightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been taller than us, but we had to be strong down low. We are going to meet players that are taller than us later in the conference, and we just have to play to their level and not give up.â&#x20AC;?

Spartans, Buckeyes represent Big Ten in BCS BY RALPH D. RUSSO AP College Football Writer

As college football prepares for the final Bowl Championship Series, featuring a Florida StateAuburn championship game, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to see why the coming four-team playoff wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t solve all the postseason problems. Heck, we might just miss the BCS. Maybe? It sort of worked out this season. Top-ranked Florida State (13-0) was the only team to get through the regular season unbeaten, and the Seminoles did it in dominating fashion. Auburn (12-1) won the Southeastern Conference, and among the teams with imperfect records, the Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rĂŠsumĂŠ is best.

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said. The pairings became official Sunday night

when the final BCS standings came out. There was no question about 1 and 2; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Noles and Tigers at the Rose Bowl on Jan. 6 for the national championship. Of course, Big 12 champion Baylor (11-1) and Big Ten champion Michigan State (12-1) might argue with that top two. But over 16 seasons, fans have built up what can be called BCS acceptance, learning to live with the fact that there is only room for two. Only eight times before the BCS did No. 1 play No. 2 in a bowl game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a remarkable seismic change for this sport,â&#x20AC;? executive director Bill Hancock said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was unthinkable before the BCS.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just happens that the Poinsettia Bowl,â&#x20AC;? Frazier continued, â&#x20AC;&#x153;having the Mountain West runner-up, obviously us being a runner-up in our own right, in looking at that matchup, we all felt that was the right place for us, and the right timing.â&#x20AC;? Utah State finished the season 8-5 and won the MWC Mountain Division. The Aggies suffered a 24-17 loss to Fresno

State in Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s MWC Championship Game in Fresno, Calif. NIU has finals this week, and Huskies head coach Rod Carey said the team wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t practice until later in the week, when finals are over. NIU will also be able to use the Chessick Practice Center this season. For past bowl practices, NIU has had to use the DeKalb Recreation Center when the weather has been bad. This will be NIUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second appearance in the Poinsettia Bowl. The

Huskies lost to TCU, 37-7, in 2006. The game has been in existence since 2005. Carey said the game will give the senior class a chance to go out the right way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year after the Orange Bowl loss, we had to sit on that loss for 6 months, and that was a really bad taste in your mouth for that amount of time,â&#x20AC;? Carey said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to wait that long to get back out there and get that bad taste out of our mouth.â&#x20AC;?

Bertrand helps shut down Denson BETTER

CONTINUED FROM B1

â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s] the best 20 minutes weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve played this year,â&#x20AC;? Groce added. Rice, the Illiniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading scorer at 18 points per game, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t score in the first 15:34. His layup with 4:26 remaining triggered a 15-2 Illinois run, however, to close the first half. Fellow junior Tracy Abrams added 17 points, seven rebounds and five assists as the visitors played like they owned the place. It appeared there were more Illinois fans in Philips than Auburn fans less than 24 hours after the Tigers beat Missouri in the SEC football Championship Game across the street in the Georgia Dome. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just came out and threw the first punch; Coach emphasized that,â&#x20AC;? Rice said after making 8 of 12 shots, including a pair of 3s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were definitely mad about the loss at Georgia Tech.â&#x20AC;? Former Auburn star Charles Barkley was in attendance, and the Tigers could have used the 1984 SEC Player of the Year. Senior guard Chris Denson entered the game as

Illinois guard Rayvonte Rice shoots over Auburnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s KT Harrell (1) and Asauhn Dixon-Tatum (0) on Sunday in Atlanta. Rice led the Illini with 22 points. the SECâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading scorer at nearly 22 points per game, but with Rice and Joseph Bertrand chiefly tasked with defending him, Denson shot just 3-for-7 for eight points. Illinois was averaging just over six made 3-pointers a game, yet topped that in the first half in making 7 of 13, while Auburn missed all four of its shots from distance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With their defensive scheme [designed] to cut off penetration and cutting off drivers ... our guys saw that and were willing to kick it out,

make the extra pass and be unselfish,â&#x20AC;? Groce said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fortunately, we made some shots.â&#x20AC;? Auburn (4-3) was led by junior guard KT Harrellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 23 points, and freshman point guard Tahj Shamsid-Deen added 13 in a return to his hometown. The Tigers, however, shot just 40 percent, and that number was bumped up as they warmed up late while closing the game with a 22-8 run, mostly against younger Illini players. Auburn shot just 6 of 23 (26.1 percent) in the first half.

2013 CHEVY CRUZE LTZ

You’ll have plenty of ideas this year, but before you make any moves, make sure your concepts are sound. False information can lead you down a deceptive path. Focus more on home, family and projects that you know will bring you success. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Think matters through today. Uncertainty is the enemy. Remain calm and be mindful of what is going on around you. Make changes at home that will add to your comfort and joy.

BACK-UP CAMERA, 17” WHEELS, REMOTE START! $

299/

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- An unusual plan will end up working out quite well. Innovation can bring greater opportunity to work alongside individuals who can inspire and motivate you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You need to concentrate on improving your income, status or reputation. Look over contracts or paperwork that need to be addressed before the year comes to a close.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Keep your ears and your mind open today. It would be best to move at your own speed without relying on anyone to make choices for you. A good investment will pay off. Believe

in your talents. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Know ahead of time what needs to be done to avoid being frazzled by the unexpected. A moneymaking idea can be launched. Keep personal issues in perspective. Don’t overspend on luxury items. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Add a personal touch to whatever you do, and it will be appreciated. Make a promise to someone you want to spend more time with, and the momentum generated will take care of the rest. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Don’t leave anything to chance. Stay on top of what needs to be done and deliver on your commitments. It’s not a good time to mix business with pleasure. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Venture down avenues that could lead you to learn something unusual or teach you about a culture or philosophy that you know little about. Plan a romantic adventure.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- If you don’t like your current situation, do something to change it. Explore new people, places and pursuits to get you thinking about future prospects. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Get into the mainstream. Enjoy life and the activities, events and people that interest you. Look for a way to turn your thoughts into reality. Don’t get angry -- get moving.
