We’ve started to get requests here at The Herald-News from politicians who want to meet with our editorial board and discuss endorsements. The Herald-News has an interesting history when it comes to endorsements: Some years we’ve done them, others we have not. There was a time, I’m told, when candidates felt an endorsement by The Herald-News was critical to a successful campaign. I hope that one day our editorial board will carry that same influence and be looked at by our readers as a strong voice for the community. For the November election, our editorial board has decided we will not endorse – unless we feel it is a critical issue that we must weigh in on because not doing so would be a dereliction of duty of our job as a watchdog for this community. Given Illinois’ dire fiscal situation, we anticipate endorsing in the governor’s race. We are considering weighing in on a few local referendums. We will take each one on a case-

VIEWS Kate Schott by-case basis, and if we feel strongly enough on an issue, we will take a stance. Other races – including county races and races for state representative seats – we’ve decided we aren’t prepared to make a thoughtful decision that we consider to be in the best interests of our readers, so we will not endorse. It’s not that we don’t care. It’s that we don’t feel we at this time can devote the proper amount of time to confidently make an educated endorsement – and we don’t want to undertake such an important task if we can’t do it right. Many of us are still new to the Joliet region and are still learning about this area and what our readers care about. There still are areas of the publication’s print and online editions we are refining and tweaking. It would be wrong for us to pretend we know

enough about every race on the ballot to make an educated, engaging recommendation on how our readers should vote. The editorial board will continue to discuss if endorsements are something we want to do in the future. There are several schools of thought on whether newspapers should endorse. I’d love to hear yours.

Election letters I sure would love to see some election-related letters to the editor start coming in (words I may regret if a deluge comes in). If you want to write an election-related letter, please keep them to 200 words. We do not accept form letters and will run one election-related letter every 15 days per person. The deadline to submit an election-related letter is 5 p.m. Oct. 29, and we need your name, address and phone number (for verification purposes only. Only your name and town will appear in print).

County Executive Larry Walsh diagnosed with prostate cancer By LAUREN LEONE–CROSS lleonecross@shawmedia.com Will County Executive Larry Walsh is scheduled to undergo surgery Thursday following a recent prostate cancer diagnosis. Nick Palmer, chief of staff for the county executive’s office, said Walsh remains “optimistic and upbeat” despite the 66-year-old’s recent diagnosis. It will take Walsh a couple of weeks to recover from surgery, Palmer said, but Walsh has every intention of staying “plugged in” on what’s going on in county government while he’s away.

“Any time you hear the word cancer, it gives pause. But Larry is a very hardworking and hearty guy,” Palmer said. “To hear him affected by cancer, you hate to see him have to slow down. Everyone’s hoping and praying Larry Walsh for a speedy recovery.” Walsh made the announcement through a news release issued Friday. “Unfortunately, I am like many men my age and was diagnosed with prostate cancer following my regular check-up

by my doctor,” Walsh said in the release. “I have great confidence in my local doctors who are taking the appropriate steps to treat this disease, and I am very optimistic that I will be back to my regular schedule soon.” Palmer said Friday that Walsh doesn’t plan to discuss his diagnosis beyond what was said in the news release. “People love him and care about him. We’re hopeful that it’s going to be a smooth, successful surgery and I expect him back as soon as he can,” Palmer said. Palmer said Walsh intends to make a full recovery.

Catholic schools work to attract growing Latino population By FELIX SARVER

By the numbers


Diocese of Joliet Catholic Schools Enrollment


OLIET – A growing Latino population is leading to increased enrollment of Latino students in the Joliet Catholic schools. Even with overall enrollment at Catholic schools declining, the Diocese of Joliet has seen a 40 percent increase in Latino students at elementary schools since 2010. Diocese officials are adjusting some of their school recruitment strategies in light of the changing demographics. They are now encouraging more Latino families to enroll their children. In exchange, those children receive what diocese officials and supporters say is a strong education and pathway to college. Carlos Vivanco, an eighthgrade student at St. Mary Nativity School in Joliet, said he believes his school “sets a standard” for academic success. “It’s some very advanced stuff we’re learning,” he said. The Rev. John Belmonte, Catholic schools superintendent, said the diocese wants to make Catholic education as accessible as possible to many youths, not just Latino students. But that population is a growing immigrant group in the area, he said. “We should be offering Catholic education to our growing Latinos [population] just as we had to other immigrants throughout our history,” he said.

Bringing in more Latino students The rising Latino student population within the schools is a result of more Latino families settling in the Joliet area, diocese officials said. A 2010 Census Bureau report estimated the number of Latinos in Joliet at roughly 28 percent of the 147,450 people in Joliet, compared to roughly

Latino student enrollment in elementary schools: 2010-11: 940 2011-12: 1,141 2012-13: 1,304 2013-14: 1,333 Preschool, elementary and high school enrollment: 2011-12: 22,070 2012-13: 21,868 2013-14: 21,428 Enrollment for 2014-15 school year is being finalized.

18 percent in 2000, when the population was 106,221. Because of this, diocese officials have laid out several strategies to recruit and enroll more Latino students – such as the Madrinas Mentorship program, which builds a bridge between the schools and the Latino community. The madrinas – Spanish for godmother – who serve in the program are typically community leaders who introduce families to the schools and help them enroll, said Anne-Marie Cronin, Catholic schools’ marketing and enroll-

ment management director. The madrinas can also help families apply for financial aid, she said. “The madrina is kind of looked upon as the godmother who shepherds the children and introduces them to the school,” she said. Pastors and principals reach out to families as well, and present them with tuition options. Belmonte said the average tuition for schools serving students from kindergarten through eighth grade is $3,800 a year. Another strategy focuses

on retaining students. The Catholic Education Foundation supports students financially until they graduate from eighth grade. Students are eligible for a standard award amounting to $1,500 from the foundation. Parents and schools must match the award. School officials tout the successful educational standards of their schools. According to a 2012-13 Diocese of Joliet annual report, the graduation rate of all schools was at 99 percent and ACT scores averaged 25.3 for diocese schools. The report also states 99 percent of graduates from their schools attend a fouryear college or university.

Declining enrollment Despite the increase in Latino students, the Catholic

schools within the Diocese of Joliet have seen an overall declining enrollment at its preschool, elementary and high schools. Enrollment in the 2011-12 school year, which was 22,070 students, declined by 2 percent in the 2013-14 school year. Diocese officials are currently finalizing the enrollment numbers for the 2014-15 school year. Several years ago, low enrollment and budget issues led to the shut down of Saint Patrick School and Saint Joseph Catholic School. Saint Joseph Catholic School was born again as St. Joseph Academy, but it is not a diocesan school. The school was started by parents and others who criticized the Diocese for closing the downtown school and others on the East Side, which has is a large Latino population. Belmonte said the school closures on the East Side happened over a number of years, with some of them preceding his time as superintendent and the surge in the Latino

Judge rules on Evergreen Terrace By BILL WIMBISCUS bwimbiscus@shawmedia.com JOLIET – A federal judge’s ruling on Evergreen Terrace agreed with the city of Joliet on every point in its nine-year bid to condemn the low-income Broadway Street housing complex. U.S. District Judge Charles Norgle, in an order issued Thursday, ruled in favor of Joliet and against Evergreen Terrace owners New West LP/New Bluff LP on all claims. Much of the ruling focused on findings that New West/ New Bluff failed to fix health, safety and security problems at the 356-unit site after the city began condemnation proceedings in 2005. Norgle noted that the property continued to receive failing scores on U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development real estate assessment inspections even after receiving $5 million in renovations through HUD’s Mark-to-Market program. As recently as July 2012, both Evergreen Terrace I and II received failing scores of 46 and 50 on a 100-point scale. The inspections noted the presence of serious health and safety violations, ranging from plumbing and electrical issues to broken windows and inoperable emergency exits. Mold also was reported, as well as pervasive German cockroach and Norwegian rat infestations since 2005. “The court finds that the property was not decent, safe, sanitary or in good repair following $5 million in repairs and renovations,” Norgle stated. “Blight at the property has not been eradicated as of 2012 or later.”

Security issues Norgle also noted that security remained a problem. “There are numerous reports that security staff are too afraid to deal with loiterers and those who commit

A view of the Evergreen Terrace housing complex in September 2011. crime on the property,” Norgle stated. “Security guards have had their lives threatened on multiple occasions.” In one case, a glass window at the guard station was shot out by a BB gun. There also were reports of people paying residents to obtain visitor passes for them. Norgle noted that the property lacks sufficient fencing around its buildings, and that some of the cameras used for security on the site have themselves been stolen. The court noted that Joliet continues to expend resources for the high numbers of police, fire and medical emergency calls at the facility, which was one of the main reasons it sought to condemn the property in 2005. Norgle noted that all of the failed inspections, safety violations, unsanitary conditions and criminal activity at Evergreen Terrace in the case occurred after 2005 when it was under close scrutiny by HUD. “The evidence shows that even [the owners’] best efforts have failed to make a meaningful difference to eradicate blight at the prop-

erty,” Norgle stated. Norgle also found no evidence that Joliet acted with an intent to discriminate against African-Americans, noting that the city agreed with HUD to provide 115 low-income housing units if it gained ownership of the property, and that the Housing Authority of Joliet also provided housing opportunities.

Confident in city’s case City Attorney Jeff Plyman said he didn’t learn about the failed 2012 HUD inspections until the trial started in 2013. “They hurried up to do the inspections to provide evidence that the property was no longer blighted, and then they flunked the inspections,” Plyman said. “They re-inspected a second time and the results were even worse.” Plyman, who has worked on the case from the beginning, said he always was confident that the city would be able to prove that living conditions at the complex were horrible. “Everyone knew the place had drugs and crimes. I knew

we would be able to establish that,” Plyman said. Plyman said his biggest concerns were over the owners’ claims of racial discrimination and how potential changes in the federal Fair Housing Act might affect the process. “I knew the discrimination claims were false, but I didn’t know how the court would handle those claims,” Plyman said. “Even though I knew they were fabricated, there was an uncertainty.” Plyman said the court has set a Sept. 26 status hearing for the case. He said he expected dates then would be set for the next phase of the trial, which will determine how much Joliet will pay the owners to take over Evergreen Terrace. Burnham Management Co., the firm that manages Evergreen Terrace, said it plans to appeal the ruling. “While we are disappointed with this ruling, we plan to appeal and will continue to move forward singularly focused on providing safe, affordable housing for those who need it most,” the company said in a news release.

PLAINFIELD – A 12-yearold girl who fell through a storm sewer grate outside Ira Jones Middle School on Friday morning suffered a broken finger along with some scrapes and bruises, a school spokesman said. The girl is home, and other than the finger injury, is in good condition, Plainfield School District 202 spokesman Tom Hernandez said. The seventh-grader was alert at the scene when she was rescued from the 10-foot hole and talking to responders from the Plainfield Police Department and Plainfield Fire Protection District, he said. “We’re glad it wasn’t worse,” Hernandez said. The incident occurred at approximately 10 a.m. when a seventh-grade gym class was taking laps around a field and tossing softballs. Hernandez said the girl tripped on a 4-foot round concrete drainage basin as she was catching or throwing a ball and stumbled onto a twopiece steel grate held together by u-bolts. The girl hit the grate at an angle causing the u-bolts to unhinge and she fell into the drainage hole. The grate has since been welded together and bolted to the concrete, Hernandez said. The girl was taken by ambulance to Rush Copley Medical Center in Aurora. Hernandez said the district is still investigating what caused the grate to come loose. Administrators aren’t aware of any other schools with similarly situated drainage basins and grates.

Seven-Day Forecast for Will County

Maya found guilty on all counts Jury deliberated less than two hours By BRIAN STANLEY bstanley@shawmedia.com

Chris Koch Assistant Will County State’s Attorney der, attempted murder, aggravated battery with a firearm and unauthorized possession of a firearm by a felon. He faces at least 71 years in prison when he is sentenced by Judge Robert Livas on Oct. 20. Guerrero Erick Maya sobbed frequently during closing arguments Friday morning and left the courtroom when defense attorney George Lenard said police “put their blinders on” to focus on Maya and not another suspect. Dylan Somma, who lived on Emery Avenue where the shooting occurred, was arrested running from the police as they searched for the shooter on Feb. 13. Somma testified last week that he fled because he was wanted on outstanding warrants and police had flooded the neighborhood after the shooting. During his testimony, Somma said he’d never met Valle, Guerrero or Maya.

About 15 minutes after beginning deliberations, the jury asked to review the transcript of Somma’s testimony. After Livas read the testimony for them again, the jury deliberated for about another hour before reaching their verdict. Valle’s parents, a handful of family members, Romeoville police officers and reporters sat in the courtroom audience. None of Maya’s family attended. Foreman Ryan Connelly said when jurors began deliberations “everybody was pretty much on the same page” regarding Maya’s guilt, but they wanted to confirm they recalled Somma’s claims accurately. “The way the case was presented gave a very clear picture of what happened,” Connelly said. “Everyone felt [Maya] was responsible.” In separate interviews, three courthouse employees described Maya’s expression as “a smirk” while he was taken from the courtroom to be transported back to the

her and her family. Guerrero obtained an order of protection against Maya. Maya on Feb. 11, according to a cab driver’s testimony at the trial, took a taxi to the 300 block of Emery Avenue where Valle lived, and left. Two days later, he called the same taxi driver for another ride to the same block and arrived about 15 minutes before the shooting. A few hours later police found Maya hiding under a porch two blocks away. “Erick Maya would have to be the unluckiest person in the world to be found hiding under a porch in a town he has no business being in while the person he’s been threatening to kill is shot a block away,” Koch said. “He’s a coward. He couldn’t accept sometimes relationships don’t work. He couldn’t accept people move on. “And he couldn’t face her when he shot her,” Koch said.

We’re grateful for all the hard work from the state’s attorney, the Romeoville police and our victim advocate,” Guerrero said. “I also want to thank the jurors.” Maya met Valle through Facebook in the summer of 2012 and the girl soon ran away to be with the man who was eight years older than her. Despite her parents’ efforts to keep her from contacting him, Valle continued to see Maya and accepted “an engagement ring.” The family moved to Romeoville in 2013, but Valle and Maya continued to exchange text messages using her friends’ phones. When Valle broke off the relationship in December and told Maya she had been seeing a 17-year-old boy from school, he sent messages threatening to rape and kill


JOLIET – Throughout his two-week murder trial, Erick Maya maintained the same posture and position at the defense table. He sat slightly forward with his head down and did not look as witness after witness testified about his relationship with Briana Valle. Though he was asked to stand, his demeanor did not change Friday as the jury announced he was guilty on all counts. The jury deliberated for less than two hours before reaching a verdict. Maya continued looking away as the jury returned while Valle’s mother, Alicia Guerrero, looked up to the ceiling. “I was thinking about my daughter,” she said later. Maya, 24, was called “a coward” Friday by Assistant Will County State’s Attorney Chris Koch in closing arguments. The prosecutor said Maya tried to control Valle, a 15-year-old student at Romeoville High School. When Valle ended their relationship, Maya went to her Romeoville home Feb. 13 and ambushed Valle and Guerrero, Koch said. Valle died after being shot in the head through the window of her mother’s car. Guerrero was struck near her collarbone and survived. Maya, of Cicero, was found guilty of two counts of mur-

Ellen Rendulich Founding member of the Lockport-based group Citizens Against Ruining the Environment


“These plants that were built in the 1950s, they were grandfathered in [under the original Clean Air Act] to avoid pollution control requirements, with the concept being that they would only burn for another 10 years or so and they would be shut down, and here we were, in 1995, still fighting against it.”

• Sunday, September 21, 2014

Ellen Rendulich remembers as far back as 1995 when she and others involved in a new local environmental group in Lockport started speaking out against coal-fired power plant operations in the area. “These plants that were built in the 1950s, they were grandfathered in [under the original Clean Air Act] to avoid pollution control requirements, with the concept being that they would only burn for another 10 years or so and they would be shut down, and here we were, in 1995, still fighting against it,” said Rendulich, one of the founding members of the Lockport-based group Citizens Against Ruining the Environment. In many ways, Rendulich and other members of C.A.R.E. are still fighting that same fight today. They expressed frustration with last month’s announcement from NRG Energy that the company would be shutting down one of two units at its Romeoville plant and would convert its Joliet plant to natural gas to comply with environmental regulations. “It’s not enough,” Rendulich said. NRG spokesman Dave Gaier said the moves are expected to reduce overall carbon dioxide emissions by at least 16 million tons by 2020 – which is the equivalent of taking 4 million cars off the road. Sandy Burncenski and Carol Stark, both C.A.R.E. members, weren’t entirely thrilled with the announcement. “NRG is bragging about how green they are, but if they were truly a green company, they would be looking at alternative forms of energy,” Stark said. “What about renewables?”

come at a cost of 50 jobs. At NRG’s Joliet plant, about 150 workers face layoffs. Illinois’ power plants, including the ones in Joliet and Romeoville, have had a history of legal problems for both air and water violations, along with compliance issues with the original Clean Air Act, said Christine Nannicelli, field organizer with Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal campaign. Nannicelli said the Sierra Club plans to fight for the shut down of NRG’s Romeoville plant. “There’s simply no safe or healthy way to burn coal,” Nannicelli said. The same goes for NRG’s plans to convert its Joliet plant to natural gas, she said. “They’re switching from one fossil fuel to another,” Nannicelli said. “I think for a company that really describes itself as a trailblazing power producer that’s really looking to lead in the 21st century, their busiShaw Media file photo ness plan really falls far short of that.

NRG’s plan calls for Romeoville’s Unit 3 ceasing operations by April 1. But its Unit 4 will continue operations as long as it remains in compliance with state and federal emission laws and regulations. The site’s other two units closed in previous

K-12 enrollment down countywide By LAUREN LEONE–CROSS lleonecross@shawmedia.com School enrollment is down countywide about 3.7 percent from 2010, according to a recent annual report from the Will County Regional Office of Education. One exception to the trend was Joliet, where the numbers of students increased. The report comes out as school officials in Channahon prepare to meet Monday to discuss the possible closing of a school because of falling enrollment. Channahon School District 17 and school districts in Mokena, Peotone, Fairmont, Elwood and Summit Hill, saw the greatest drops from 2010 to 2014, ranging from a 20 percent decline in Mokena to a 9.1 percent decline in Summit Hill. The District 17 board will meet Monday and discuss whether to close Pioneer Path School and operate only three schools. The district has experienced a 14 percent drop in enrollment since 2010. Closing Pioneer Path would save the district a few hundred thousand dollars a year on overhead costs alone, board members have said. But a vote on whether to close Pioneer Path school is a long way

“We’re just continuing the conversation. There will not be a vote [Monday]. There probably won’t be a vote during this school year.” Karin Evans Channahon School District 17 superintendent

off, Superintendent Karin Evans said Friday. “We’re just continuing the conversation. There will not be a vote [Monday],” Evans said. “There probably won’t be a vote during this school year.” Just nine of Will County’s 29 districts experienced enrollment increases between 2010 and 2014, according to the report. Joliet Public Schools District 86 led the way by a wide margin with 1,882 students in 2014, up 18.6 percent from 2010. Joliet Township School District 204, Manhattan School District 114 and Taft School District 90 in Lockport also gained students during the five-year period. Will County Regional Superintendent Shawn Walsh said it’s difficult to pinpoint

why enrollment is down countywide. A more accurate picture is painted when individual school districts are examined, he said. “It’s hard to say why it’s happening. Maybe folks are getting older in the neighborhoods [with declining enrollment]. We have families in places like Mokena that have lived there 30 or more years and their kids have grown,” said Walsh. “Then you have schools like [Joliet Public Schools District 86] that’s seen a significant increase.” For Channahon, there are two possible consolidation options, both phasing Pioneer Path out by the 2016-2017 school year. One plan adds third grade to N.B. Galloway School and adds fourth grade to Three Rivers School, with Channahon Junior High School remaining with two grades. The other option involves keeping Galloway as is, changing Three Rivers from fifth and sixth grades to grades third through fifth, and adding sixth grade to the junior high. Administrators and the board leaned during its last board meeting toward the first option, saying the junior high would not be readily adaptable to adding sixth grade.

Crest Hill to start Adopt-A-Highway program By VIKAAS SHANKER vshanker@shawmedia.com CREST HILL – The city of Crest Hill’s first Adopt-AHighway program has been initiated by a business seeking to give back to the community. New York-based Rich Products Corporation, which operates a manufacturing facility and bakery at 21511 Division St., approached city officials about their interest in participating in the program. The City Council approved the program Monday. “The Adopt-A-Highway program will be a tremendous benefit for the community,” Mayor Ray Soliman said. “I hope that Rich Products’ leadership with this program will motivate other businesses and organizations to follow their

lead for the benefits of our residents.” Adopt-A-Highway is a state program that welcomes groups and businesses to clean up litter on streets while getting recognition for community service. The city set up the program under guidelines of the Illinois Adopt-AHighway Act. The city will operate the program by reviewing applications, entering into agreements with committed groups and erecting signs that conform to standards set by the Illinois Department of Transportation. The city needs to supply safety presentation materials, garbage bags, appropriate safety apparel and traffic warning signs. It also has to remove filled garbage bags and large or hazardous items.

The participating group is responsible for cleaning up a designated section of road at least four times a year. It must provide safety training and is liable for any claim from members or volunteers. The groups can’t subcontract the work. The group also needs one supervisor older than 21 for every five minors present at a litter pickup and no one younger than 10 can participate. Rich Products has adopted a stretch of Division Street from Weber Road to just west of Gaylord Road. “Rich Products is very big into giving back to the community it works in,” said Christopher Novak, the materials manager for the facility. Organizations that want to take part can contact the city clerk’s office at 815-741-5100.

2015 budget process City Administrator Ben Benson gave the City Council an update on the budget for next year. The city is operating on a six-month stub budget that will end this year so the budget can be switched to a calendar-based cycle. Benson said city departments are already meeting on budget details. City staff will present those details to the council Oct. 15, with announcement of a public hearing Oct. 20. City officials intend to have a hearing Nov. 19 on the budget and a presentation on the tax levy. Final approval of the budget is anticipated for Dec. 17, he said. “This is a new fiscal year for us for the calendar year of Jan. 2015 through Dec. 2015,” he said.

LOCAL BRIEF Joliet garage fire causes $5,000 in damage JOLIET – Fire pit ashes left in a plastic garbage can may have caused a garage fire on the 900 block of West Park Avenue Saturday morning, fire officials said. The Joliet Fire Department received a call at 9 a.m. Saturday about a fire in a detached garage at 904 W. Park Ave., Fire Captain Mark Vershay said. “One of the residents of the house noticed smoke coming

home. It’s a $2 billion dollar investment that’s

out of the side of the garage,” Vershay said. The fire appears to have been caused by fire pit ashes placed in a plastic garbage can in the garage, Vershay said. The garage sustained about $5,000 worth of damage to both its inside and outside. There were no injuries, and crews were on the scene for about an hour Saturday, Vershay said.

LOCKPORT – City officials believe Retail Coach has sparked some interest in future development. Pam Hirth, city community and economic development director, told Lockport officials at Wednesday’s City Council meeting that Retail Coach completed its second outreach to retailers, services and developers. The city is using the Mississippi-based company to strengthen its appeal to businesses that will help Lockport become more prominent in the Chicago region. “The good news is that there has been some interest by two developers – regional developers – one that specializes in new development and one that specializes in redevelopment,” Hirth said. Hirth said she hopes more information will be available in the coming weeks. She also said the company did an “opportunity analysis” of the downtown area that is similar to the gap analysis already done. The analysis looks at the populations that comes to the downtown area within a roughly two mile radius. Hirth said nine new businesses have opened in Lock-

port recently, including Diamond Billiards, U.S. Bank and Sizzles restaurant. She hopes more open by the end of the year. Hirth also said the city has issued 39 housing permits with 13 pending. She hopes there will be an increase toward the end of the year. “We’ve seen in upsurge in those permits so were optimistic,” she said.

JOLIET – The Will County Health Department will use a federal grant to expand mobile services and add behavioral health to its Community Health Center. The center, at 1106 Neal Ave. in Joliet, will receive $246,154 from the Health Resources and Services Administration during the next two years. Mary Maragos, the center’s CEO, said the funds will be used to add three full-time health professionals to staff, including a nurse practitioner, certified medical assistant and a licensed clinical social worker. “We will add a full-time family nurse practitioner and a certified medical assistant, who would see walk-in patients at our Neal Avenue clinic,” Maragos said in a news release. “They will also spend time seeing patients on our mobile dental van, which is being equipped for medical care.” The social worker will provide screening, evaluation and management of patients with behavioral health and substance use disorders. “We plan to integrate behavioral health and primary care services for all our patients,” Maragos said in the release. The grant also will fund a part-time driver for the center’s mobile dental van. The

van visits schools, community shelters and other areas of the county that have limited access to health care. The grant is second piece of federal funding the health department has received in recent months. The center received a $248,814 construction grant Aug. 26 through the Patient-Centered Medical Home Facility Improvement Grant Program. The 33,000-square-foot center will use the money to make its waiting area more accessible for patients with disabilities and improve patient registration and checkout efficiency. Vic Reato, a spokesman for the health department, said Will County was one of 43 communities to receive the latest grant. “It’s a competitive grant, with 1,100 public health centers across the U.S., Puerto Rico and along the Pacific Rim competing for them,” Reato said. “It just so happens that these two we applied for were funded. I’m sure demographics entered into it. ... There are a lot of medically under-served people residing in this county.” A key part of the grant proposal was expanding the dental van to other medical treatment. “Up until now, patients had to come to the center for treatment,” Reato said. “With these new van capabilities, it will allow us to go to them.”

16 School District 111

continues deficit spending By JEANNE MILLSAP Shaw Media Correspondent MINOOKA – Minooka Community High School District 111 will benefit from a nearly $1 million increase in state aid this year but still operate at a deficit. The deficit will be $3.5 million, according to a presentation about the final 2015 budget made Thursday to the school board by Finance Director John Bryk. State aid will increase by $996,795. Revenues are projected at $35 million, and expenditures at $38.5 million. The district has been spending more than it takes in for at least three years, Bryk said, but the end balance of each fund is expected to be positive at the end of the fiscal year, which is June 30. However, Bryk said before the meeting that if expenditure projections continue and the equalized assessed valuation of property doesn’t increase, the surplus end balances could end in about 18 months. The EAV, he said, is expected to drop by five percent this year, and the district is maxed out on its tax rate. “It’s a concern for everyone,” Bryk said. “The deficit is getting wider, and that will just continue. ... It will only recover if the EAV recovers. ... The board and the superintendent and I are preparing options.” The board approved the budget. “Our hope is that the assessments begin to improve,” Board President Mike Brozovich said after the meeting. “We have been and continue to look into decreasing operating costs wherever possible.” Brozovich said the board is careful not to decrease costs in ways that hurt the education of the students. “We’re in challenging times,” Interim Superintendent Jim Blanche said. “We’re going to take a hard look at revenues and expenses. ... We can’t continue the deficit spending.” Blanche said administra-

tors and the board are going to meet this fall to work out a plan to deal with the deficit. “We’re labor intensive,” he said of the district, “and that’s where we’re going to see savings, if that’s what we have to do.” Bryk said the district instituted a $2.1-million-a-year expenditure-reduction plan for the past two years, and about $300,000 in additional reductions and savings is expected this year through actions like reducing transportation costs and reducing the athletic trainer from a full-time to part-time position. Executive administration salaries will be greatly reduced starting next summer, Bryk said, after rising 55 percent this year. Former Superintendent Jim Colyott, who was let go from the district this summer, remains under contract until June 30, 2015, and will earn an annual salary, stipends and other payments of $210,000, with the district contributing another $19,917 in insurance. Blanche began July 28 at a salary of $935 a day, for a period of 150 to 170 days during the upcoming year. The district did not make specific plans on how to finance the dual superintendent salaries and benefits, Bryk said. Also contained in this year’s expenditures is a five-percent increase in insurance benefit premiums, and a decrease in purchase services and supplies of some departmental budgets. The budget includes plans to replace seating and stage lighting in the Performing Arts Center, and replace the boiler and remodel restrooms at Central Campus. The district will repair the outdoor stadium bleachers and make them ADA-compliant and repair Central Campus’s gymnasium bleachers. Also, bus surveillance systems were replaced. Bryk said also the district will explore options for refinancing debt. Last March, refinancing saved more than half a million dollars.

ROUNDUP News from across the state


Pope chooses a moderate for Chicago archbishop

As the leader of two American dioceses, Roman Catholic Bishop Blase Cupich has staked out a firm position in the middle of the road. He has spoken out against same-sex marriage and against conservative hostility toward gay rights advocates. He has opposed abortion, while urging parishioners and priests to have patience, not disdain, for those who disagree. On Saturday, Pope Francis named Cupich as the next

archbishop of Chicago, sending a strong signal about the direction that the pontiff is taking the church. Cupich will succeed Cardinal Francis George, 77, an aggressive defender of orthodoxy who once said he expected his successors in Chicago to be martyred in the face of hostility toward Christianity.


Police: Member of the Jesse White Tumbling Team killed

CHICAGO – A teenager shot to death as he walked along a North Side Chicago street was identified Friday as a member of the Jesse White Tumbling Team. Devonshay Lofton, 16, was shot by a gunman on a bicycle late Thursday, according to Chicago police. He later died at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.


Northwestern gets grant to prevent sexual assaults

EVANSTON – Northwestern University in Evanston has been awarded a grant to help prevent sexual assaults on campus, U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin’s office announced Friday. The grant of nearly $300,000 comes from the U.S. Department of Justice and was made possible by the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013. “Today’s announcement is an investment in the safety, security and well-being of the entire Northwestern University community,” Durbin said in a statement announcing the award. “This federal funding will assist efforts to prevent sexual violence on campus and to increase awareness among the campus community.”

Northwestern will use the money to work with local groups to address sexual violence on campus, expand services for survivors and run awareness programs for students and faculty, according to Durbin’s office.


Iowa man charged in alleged road rage stabbing in Illinois

WAUKEGAN – An Iowa man faces multiple aggravated battery charges in Illinois for allegedly stabbing someone in an act of road rage in Volo, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office announced Friday. Scott Allen Schultz, 45, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, allegedly stabbed the victim in the leg close to a major artery during Wednesday’s incident. In a statewide search after the stabbing, the Whiteside Coun-

ty sheriff’s office in Morrison stopped Schultz just shy of the Iowa-Illinois state line. Detectives from Lake County later formally arrested Schultz.


Lawmaker wants pumpkin to be official Illinois pie

SPRINGFIELD – Pumpkins are big business in Illinois. A state lawmaker has a sweet idea for making sure people know it: he wants to make pumpkin pie the official state pie. Republican state Rep. Keith Sommer introduced legislation to make the designation last month, in time to honor the yearly pumpkin festival which just took place in his hometown of Morton. Pumpkins are a $33 million industry for the state, the top producer in the country.

THOMAS E. WILLS Born: May 14, 1927 Died: Sept. 16, 2014 This man who was a husband, a father, grandfather, great grandfather, uncle, son, brother and friend went by many names. Thomas, Tom, Tuffy, Emery, Uncle Em, Papa or Dad was loved by all who met him. Dad passed away peacefully on Tuesday September 16, 2014 surrounded by family and friends who ushered him onto his next journey in life. We know he was looking forward to this passing and meeting up with Mom, his parents and siblings. In fact, we are sure the celebratory party has started. Tom was preceded in death by his

parents, Raymond and Edith Wills; and his wife of 54 years, Winnie Wills; and his seven siblings. He counted his family as his number one priority making sure we all were doing what we needed to do to live happy and fulfilled lives. Dad loved God and his church family as witnessed by the numbers of people who made sure to stop and see Dad while he was sick. His community family of neighbors and friends made sure to look out for him and cared for him deeply even his mechanic and hair stylist stopped by to visit when he was ill. He was that kind of man, his heart was big, and his love for all people was always present. Every person who knew Dad knew they were loved and cared for. Tom is survived by his five children, Tom Wills (Kathy Wills, deceased), Becky Palmer (Dave Anderson), Pat Masek (Rick Masek), Tim Wills and Dan Wills (Stacy Wills). Tom had ten grandchildren who loved him very much and counted on learning how to play cards half as well as he played. Tom also had eight great grandchildren and many beloved nieces and nephews. Tom was one of eight siblings and he is the last of his generation for the entire Wills clan. He was able to make the Labor Day Family Reunion this year and we are sure he hopes we all continue the tradition and continue to remain connected in the coming days. His children celebrate what a wonderful man and father he was to

us and we are proud to have been his children and promise to live by the example he taught us, to love and respect others.

NATION & WORLD BRIEFS Little action expected at U.N. climate summit WASHINGTON – New York City will be full of planet-saving pomp this coming week, but short on action to rescue the world. More than 120 world leaders convene Tuesday for a U.N. summit aimed at galvanizing political will for a new global climate treaty by the end of 2015. Environmentalists will take to the streets Sunday in what is being billed as the largest march ever on global warming. Celebrities, CEOs and climatologists will appear at a string of events as part of New York’s annual climate week. The hope is to recapture the momentum lost after the disappointing 2009 climate summit in Copenhagen, when world leaders left without a binding treaty. The one-day U.N. summit is the pinnacle of the 7-year-old tenure of Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who has made fighting climate change his rallying cry and traveled the globe to personally invite world leaders to the gathering. Yet whatever happens at the U.N. summit is unlikely to bring the Earth closer to a goal set in Copenhagen: Preventing Earth’s temperature from rising more than 2 degrees Fahrenheit from where it is now.

Security boosted after White House intrusion WASHINGTON – The Secret Service chief has stepped-up security

outside the White House after a man with a knife who jumped the fence made it into the presidential residence before being apprehended, officials said Saturday. President Barack Obama insisted he still has confidence in the beleaguered agency’s ability to protect him and his family.

Prosecutors look to new DNA testing in twin cases BOSTON – Prosecutors in Boston were forced to put a rape suspect on trial three times before jurors were willing to convict him a decade ago. It wasn’t due a lack of evidence, but because the suspect was an identical twin. Similar cases have popped up elsewhere, illustrating the challenges of prosecuting a twin. Because identical twins come from a single fertilized egg, standard DNA testing has not been able to differentiate between them. But Boston prosecutors who have struggled twice in the last decade with such cases believe they have a new tool to persuade jurors: cutting-edge DNA testing they say can distinguish between identical twins. “The science behind this testing has been used in research, in paternity tests and in a variety of other capacities,” said Jake Wark, a spokesman for Suffolk District Attorney Daniel Conley, whose office is now prosecuting Dwayne McNair, a twin who is charged in the rapes and robberies of two women in 2004.

A closer look at American jihadis: Why do they fight? By DEB RIECHMANN The Associated Press WASHINGTON – A look at four Americans who became jihadis, and what motivated them to fight: Moner Mohammad Abusalha, who liked to cuddle cats, blew himself up in May in Syria. He was the first American suicide bomber in that civil war. Abusalha, 22, was a community college student who grew up playing basketball in Vero Beach, Florida. But Abusalha, the son of a Palestinian father and Italian-American mother, became increasingly consumed with religious fervor. He said he was influenced by a close, radical friend, according to a video he made before he killed himself and 16 others while fighting with Nusra Front, al-Qaida’s branch in Syria. Both decided that jihad was for them, but when it was time to go, the friend backed out. ••• Shannon Maureen Conley, 19, a nurse’s aide from suburban Denver, was arrested in April as she boarded a flight at Denver International Airport. It was to be the first leg of a journey to Syria, where she wanted to fight with jihadis. She believed it was her only answer to correcting what she saw as wrongs perpetrated against the Muslim world. The Muslim convert told FBI agents that she wanted to marry an online suitor from Tunisia who said he was fighting with the extremists. She wanted to use her American military training from the U.S. Army Explorers to fight or be a nurse at the man’s camp. FBI agents became aware of Conley’s growing interest in extremism in November 2013 after she started talking about terrorism with employees of a suburban Denver

Mufid Elfgeeh is taken out of Federal Court in Rochester, N.Y., Thursday. Elfgeeh, who is accused of plotting to kill members of the U.S. military and others, pleaded not guilty Thursday to new federal charges that he tried to aid the Islamic State group in Syria and Iraq. church. They had seen her wandering around and taking notes on the layout of the campus, according to court documents. Her lawyer, Robert Pepin, said she was misled while exploring her faith. Conley pleaded guilty this month to one count of conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization. ••• Mufid Elfgeeh, a 30-yearold naturalized U.S. citizen in Rochester, New York, was arrested in May after he bought two handguns and a pair of silencers that federal officials said he planned to use to kill U.S. veterans of Iraq fighting and Shiites living in the Rochester area. On Thursday, Elfgeeh, a Sunni Muslim who was born in Yemen, pleaded innocent to new federal charges that he tried to aid the Islamic State group. Court papers say the food mart owner tried to arrange for three individuals to travel to Syria to join Islamic State fighters. He said he was thinking about doing something in New York to avenge the U.S. “killing machine.” ••• They both were converts to Islam, and both ended up dead

on extremists’ battlefields halfway around the world. Each had tattoos on the right side of their necks, marks that helped identify them once they were killed. Troy Kastigar, 28, went first, leaving Minneapolis in November 2008. He had become friends with another man who was getting ready to join the al-Shabab terrorist group in Somalia. A year later he was killed there while fighting the terror group alShabab. “If you guys only knew how much fun we have over here – this is the real Disneyland,” Kastigar said in a 40-minute video released by al-Shabab that also showed his shrouded corpse. His basketball buddy, Douglas McAuthur McCain, 33, of suburban Minneapolis followed him into the terrorism fight, ending up in Turkey, a frequent entry point to Syria. He was killed this year in Syria fighting with the Islamic State group. McCain, who last lived in San Diego, once said in a Twitter feed that embracing Islam was the best thing he’d ever done. He was following Islamic State group fighters on Twitter, but it’s unclear what prompted them to join the fight.

Jeb Bush is focused on business By MICHAEL J. MISHAK and STEVE PEOPLES The Associated Press CORAL GABLES, Fla. – While other Republicans considering the 2016 presidential race are openly laying the foundations of potential campaigns, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is busy tending to a growing personal business empire. It’s a break in style from recent candidates who distanced themselves from the sometimes politically risky business of making money before running. A Republican establishment favorite, Bush is chairman of a Florida-based private equity and business advisory group, and is a managing partner of at least eight other separate companies that dabble

in ventures ranging from privatized emergency response to real estate to driverless cars, according to state and federal records. In the past three years, regulatory filings show that he and his partners at the private equity firm, Britton Jeb Bush Hill Holdings, have branched out into nearly a dozen different investment entities and raised at least $66.4 million from domestic and foreign investors. That includes several million this past April from a group that included a privately owned Chinese conglomerate, a deal first reported by Bloomberg. Bush says he will make a

decision about 2016 by year’s end. Should he run, this son and brother of the past two Republican presidents will face pressure to disclose years of personal tax returns and details about his private business activity, as well as to unwind his ownership in the business network he began building after leaving office in 2007. For now, in much the same way he is quietly working to support GOP candidates in the November elections, Bush’s business deals are made out of the spotlight. There is no suggestion any are improper. Because they are private enterprises and disclosure laws require only basic information, public documents offer few details about their exact nature. They are, however, reminiscent of the GOP’s last pres-

idential nominee, Mitt Romney, who struggled at times to explain the often complicated and sometimes controversial ways he made a living. Romney, as well as Bush’s father and brother, wound down personal business affairs years before running for president. “It is a legitimate issue to think about,” said Ron Kaufman, a former Romney adviser who is close to the Bush family. “In a perfect world, would he be better served if [the presidential race] was four years away? Sure. But it’s not.” Bush declined a request for an interview. Those close to him say that after his two terms as governor, he has worked aggressively to improve his personal finances, a common practice for politicians after public ser-

vice. Bush “is not currently a candidate for office. He’s a businessman,” said his spokeswoman, Kristy Campbell. “If he makes a decision to run for president, he would certainly review his work engagements at that time.” Other Bush confidants caution against reading too much into his business dealings. They believe he is well positioned to wait longer than other candidates to make a call on a campaign because of his political connections and deep fundraising network. “You don’t put your life on hold or call a time out. You move on until you make a decision,” said Al Cardenas, a Bush friend and adviser. “He enjoys what he’s doing. Investors trust him. So why would you put a stop to that?”

Tense hunt in trooper ambush case hits 8 days By MARC LEVY and MARYCLAIRE DALE The Associated Press CANADENSIS, Pa. – The suspect in the deadly ambush at a state police barracks in a remote part of northeastern Pennsylvania remained at large for an eighth day Saturday as police appeared to have narrowed their search, largely shutting down the area where he lived with his parents but leaving neighbors with few answers about what’s going on just outside their front doors. With a helicopter flying overhead, law enforcement officers wearing bulletproof vests and armed with rifles continued their hunt for Eric Frein, 31, now on the FBI’s Most Wanted list. “Our troopers are determined to find him and bring him to justice,” state police spokeswoman Maria Finn said. Police released few details about their search of the heavily wooded community in the Pocono Mountains, saying only that they were exercising extreme caution. Late Saturday, authorities lifted a shelter in place order

but urged residents returning home to use caution and to stay out of the dense, boggy woodlands where the search was underway. Authorities say Frein used a high-powered rifle to open fire from the woods near a state police barracks on Sept. 12, killing Cpl. Bryon Dickson – a married ex-Marine with two sons – and wounding Trooper Alex Douglass. Frein – described by authorities as a self-taught survivalist with a grudge against police – has been on the run ever since, authorities said. But some who know him said he has not always played the loner, and the reason for his hatred of police remained a mystery. Frein belonged to the rifle team at Pocono Mountain High School, and as an adult joined a group that performed military re-enactments based on Cold War battles in Eastern Europe. He even played a small role in a 2007 movie about a concentration camp survivor – earning him a mention in the online movie database IMDb – and helped with props and historical references on a doc-

umentary about World War I. “He was a very friendly guy to me,” said Jeremy Hornbaker, who hired him for the documentary. “We left on very good terms.” Frein’s father, retired Army Maj. E. Michael Frein, told police that he had taught his son to shoot. He “doesn’t miss,” the father told state police during a search of the family home, when he also disclosed that an AK-47 and a .308 rifle with a scope were missing. A copy of the book, “Sniper Training and Employment,” was found in his bedroom. It was Frein’s abandoned vehicle that led police to their door. The green Jeep, registered to his parents, was found partly submerged in a local pond days after the shooting. Shell casings that matched the state police ambush were still inside, as were Frein’s driver’s license, Social Security card, camouflage paint and military gear. Lars Prillaman, who manages a small farm in West Virginia, knew Frein briefly from their time as military re-enactors. He said Frein was “a different person eight years ago.”

Frein had for a time attended nearby East Stroudsburg University and held a number of jobs over the years but never any for very long, authorities said. A week after the killing, they had not said anything about what may have led to his hatred of police. Roger Smith, the owner of Smitty’s Sporting Goods in Canadensis, told The Scranton Times-Tribune that about a year ago he noticed Frein loitering outside of his store. Frein briefly stepped into the store several times that day but did not buy anything. When he asked him what he was doing, Frein motioned to a police car that just drove by and said, “Me and those guys don’t get along,” the store owner said. Frein’s only known legal problems stemmed from the 2004 theft of some vendor items at a World War II re-enactment in Odessa, New York. He failed to show for his trial, and was arrested in Pennsylvania as a fugitive from justice. In the years that followed, from 2004 to 2013, he bought four firearms at Dunkelberger’s Sports Outfitter in

Stroudsburg, store owner Jere Dunkelberger told The Associated Press. He did not know what type of weapons they were. On Frein’s MySpace page, a photo appears to show him standing in front of the Serbian Orthodox Church in Belgrade. Frein played the part of a Serbian soldier in his re-enactments and the FBI said he had claimed to have studied Russian and Serbian and to have “fought with Serbians in Africa.” The FBI’s Most Wanted poster describes him as 6-foot1, 165 pounds. State police said he apparently cut his hair into a wide Mohawk in preparation for the attack. He was also described as a heavy smoker. Police did not say how big of an area they are combing or whether they believed they had Frein. A police dispatcher said there was a report of gunfire Friday night but investigators released no information. With officers blocking roads and dozens of homes on lockdown, there was little civilian traffic Saturday in or out of the neighborhood where Frein had lived.

CAIRO – Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi is feeling vindicated by the world’s alarm over Islamic extremism that is fueling wars and bloodshed across the Middle East. The former army general has faced widespread international criticism for his ouster last year of Egypt’s first freely elected president and his ferocious crackdown on Islamists that has killed more than 1,000 and imprisoned more than 20,000. A year later, after el-Sissi’s election as president, his critics fear he is leading his country into autocracy, with pro-democracy dissenters jailed or silenced. But in an interview with The Associated Press – his first with the foreign media since he took office in June – el-Sissi insists all his actions were to combat militancy and save the country from civil war. He said Egypt is a model for fighting terrorism and that the U.S.-led coalition to fight the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria should take note. “More than a year ago, I warned that the region was heading to great danger from extremist thought,” he said. “It didn’t receive proper attention until the events in Iraq took place and the Islamic State swept over the Iraqi-Syrian borders.” His approach, however, has raised concerns over the poten-

tial for democracy in Egypt. El-Sissi and his supporters effectively group the Muslim Brotherhood – an organization that won repeated elections over the past three years – as equivalent to hardline militant groups wreaking havoc from Libya to Iraq. They accuse the Brotherhood of being behind violence in Egypt. The Brotherhood denies that, saying it is merely an excuse for el-Sissi to wipe out a political rival. Secular activists say the government uses the fight against terrorism as a reason to silence any criticism. Washington is looking for support by Arab nations for its strategy to strike the Islamic State group. But at the same time, it has been critical of Egypt’s crackdown on Islamists, withdrawing some military aid and straining a longtime alliance. El-Sissi makes his first visit to the United States as president to attend the U.N. General Assembly in the coming week. So far there are no plans for talks with President Barack Obama. El-Sissi said he is ready to help the U.S.-led coalition. Asked if Egypt might provide airspace access or logistical support for airstrikes, he said, “We are completely committed to giving support. We will do whatever is required.” But he appeared to rule out sending troops, saying Iraq’s military is strong enough to fight the militants and that “it’s not a matter of ground troops from abroad.”

WORLD BRIEFS Sierra Leone staggers in Ebola isolation effort FREETOWN, Sierra Leone – Some in Sierra Leone ran away from their homes Saturday and others clashed with health workers trying to bury dead Ebola victims as the country struggled through the second day of an unprecedented lockdown to combat the deadly disease. Despite these setbacks, officials said most of Sierra Leone’s 6 million people were complying with orders to stay at home as nearly 30,000 volunteers and health care workers fanned out across the country to distribute soap and information on how to prevent Ebola. The virus, spread by contact with bodily fluids, has killed than 560 people in Sierra Leone and more than 2,600 in West Africa since the outbreak began last December, according to the World Health Organization. It is killing about half of the people it infects. The streets of the capital, Freetown, were empty Saturday except for the four-person teams going door to door with kits bearing soap, cards listing Ebola symptoms, stickers to mark houses visited and a tally to record suspected cases.

Afghan presidential vote result to come Sunday KABUL, Afghanistan – Afghanistan’s drawn-out presidential election may finally be coming to an end. Nearly six months after Afghans cast ballots in a first-round vote, the country’s election commission on Saturday said it would announce final, audited results on Sunday from a two-man runoff held in June. U.N. and Afghan election officials spent weeks auditing the runoff results after allegations of vote fraud, a common occurrence over Afghanistan’s last two presidential elections. The announcement that vote results are coming would appear to override one of the negotiating stances of candidate Abdullah Abdullah: that vote results are not released because, he contends, undetectable fraud invalidates the results.

Community Education Lecture Series

Carlos Vivanco (center), 13, works on a computer during a Sept. 8 class at St. Mary Nativity School in Joliet.

Schools tries to adjust to demographic shifts He said the diocese is trying to address the concerns of families affected by the school closures and make sure Catholic education is still accessible to them. The schools also are trying to adjust to demographic shifts, such as the Latino families in the East Side and other families moving to the West Side. “It’s very difficult demographically to establish a stable base of families that would be in the area from kindergarten to the eighth grade,” he said.

Attraction of Catholic schools Larry White, St. Mary Nativity School principal, said

Latino families are drawn to Catholic schools because many of them are Catholic. The schools appeal to them because they nurture the Catholic faith in students. Mauricio Rodriguez, an eighth-grade student at St. Mary Nativity School, went to both Christian and public schools. He said he prefers private schools. “Here, you have to pay attention,” he said. Rodriguez said his father came from Mexico as a teenager and raised him in Joliet. His family decided to enroll him in a Catholic school because they want him to be successful. Like Vivanco, he sees a Catholic education as a pathway to college. “They want me to be someone good and do something I really want to do,” he said.

“It’s very difficult demographically to establish a stable base of families that would be in the area from kindergarten to the eighth grade.” The Rev. John Belmonte Catholic schools superintendent

Just a Dollar Dear Mr. Berko: My broker is excitingly enthusiastic about Dollar Tree because of its pending merger with Family Dollar Stores. He thinks the shares could trade at more than $100 in two years. He wants me to sell my Boeing and Wal-Mart to buy 400 shares of Dollar Tree. Please give me your opinion on this stock. — BW, Joliet

Dear BW: Well, it seems Dollar Tree will be outbid by Dollar General. And I’m pleased because Dollar Tree (DLTR-$56) and Family Dollar Stores (FDO-$79) have two very different marketing philosophies. And management at both companies would be at loggerheads trying to establish dominance. Back in August 2013, when the Dow Jones industrial average was at 15,300, I recommended the $8.5 billion DLTR at $55 a share. But though the Dow has risen by nearly 2,000 points, DLTR hasn’t budged from that recommended price. However, in the past dozen months, DLTR has opened 403 new stores, increased cash flow by 11 percent, grown revenues by 9 percent, improved profit margins to 6.9 percent and used $600 million of its cash to repurchase 13 million DLTR shares. And as I said, the ill-fated FDO deal looks like a blessing in disguise because the two companies’ management personalities are as different as cheese and chalk. Everything at DLTR is a buck or less, whereas many prices at FDO are priced the same as Wal-Mart or Kroger. So far, only the lawyers are making money, charging an obscene $1,200 an hour to obfuscate the language in the merger. Meanwhile, Wal-Mart, with dinky net profit margins of 3.4 percent and tepid revenue growth, has recognized a change in customer demographics. DLTR – with its bargain-basement prices, shorter lines and very convenient locations closer to shoppers’ homes – appeals more to cash-strapped consumers than Wal-Mart or FDO or Dollar General. DLTR’s having smaller package sizes and all merchandise be a buck or less fits snugly into the budgets of a growing number of consumers who are living paycheck to paycheck. And I enjoy traipsing the aisles of the DLTR that’s several miles from my office. I’ll usually leave that store with a tube of Colgate, a

TAKING STOCK Malcolm Berko pack of batteries or a mix of office supplies – and sometimes a smiley balloon for my wife. Several weeks ago, I bought six 4-ounce frozen rib-eye steaks for a buck each. They weren’t Ruth’s Chris quality, but after cooking them on the gas grill, I’d buy a dozen more in a heartbeat. And when a friend recently entered a hospital for an extended stay, I purchased 30 “get well” cards (mailing one a day) for 50 cents each. It doesn’t make sense to spend $65 for school supplies at Walgreens, Target or Staples when the same quantity and quality of merchandise can be bought for $12 at DLTR. Just imagine the tens of billions of dollars the government could save if Congress had the guts to require that every food stamp recipient shop only at DLTR. A reader told me a couple of years ago that she shops for her family of five at a DLTR every two weeks and spends under $50. And though the peas are not Le Sueur sweet and the private brands may not be packaged brightly, the food products are darn good. DLTR has become a competitive threat to Wal-Mart Stores (WMT$77) as the number of U.S. shoppers visiting a WMT at least once a month has been declining for the past seven years. So I don’t have a problem if you decide to sell WMT to purchase DLTR. I think there’s slower growth for the WMT future. Consumers are beginning to recognize that their household dollar stretches three to four times further at a DLTR format than at Kroger, Safeway or even WMT. However, don’t sell your Boeing. You should keep it (see my July column about it) for exceptional long-term principal, revenue and income growth – plus a superb 2.4 percent dividend, which should increase nicely each year. And as long as there is a war somewhere in the world, Boeing (BA-$128) will be there with planes, weapons, missiles, guidance systems and all the other stuff making war so wonderfully profitable with your tax dollars.

Medical marijuana centers not a good fit everywhere Oops. Making medical marijuana available to those who need it to relieve pain from cancer and other illnesses has seemed like a humane and progressive thing to do. And, there has been very little opposition to the idea. But now that plans are being proposed for growing centers, the idea has proven to be a problem in at least one community. Residents in Wilton Center have opposed a plan to put a medical marijuana growing facility in their community. Whether medical marijuana is a good idea or not, the opposition has focused on whether such an operation fits the small, country town where they live. Such issues often arise when an unusual business plans to move into the neighborhood. Certainly, it’s not surprising they would come up in a small town where a medical marijuana farm is proposed. The problem for residents in Wilton Center is they have no real official legal standing in the plan. Wilton Center is not an incorporated community. The zoning rules for the medical marijuana farm were established by Will County. The county does not require a special use permit for medical marijuana growing centers, and that means there is no local governing body that can listen to the local concerns and rule out the facility based on community impact. Will County Board member James Moustis has said in retrospect maybe a special-use permit should be required for such facilities. He has suggested changing the county rules, but it is likely too late. The solace for the opposition in Wilton Center is that the chances of a medical marijuana growing center being built there do not appear to be high. State rules limit growing centers to one per state police district. Will County is in District 5, which also includes Grundy and Kendall counties. In unincorporated Will County, there are at least three other proposals for growing centers. Last week, the city of Joliet heard two proposals for such operations. Grundy County also has a couple of proposals. That’s seven and there could be more. Eventually, state officials will decide who gets a license to operate. We believe they should take community concerns into account. The state already has put zoning limits on where both growing centers and dispensaries can be located, so as not to put them too close to schools and homes. Such rules acknowledge that even though medical marijuana is acceptable, the business does not necessarily fit everywhere. It appears there will be plenty of places to choose from in District 5. Whether local governments allow for community input or not, it should matter when the state issues a license in District 5.



An epidemic knows no border Nine years ago, my family was out on a limb – or on rooftops. They were looking for someone to rescue them from the angry floodwaters of Hurricane Katrina. Day after day, I scoured the Internet. I called friends in Louisiana to ask if they were able to visit the local shelters, or to call Red Cross. I asked if some would simply look around for any of my family members – my sisters Lisa, Sheila, Zeola and Cheryl. Or learn if my dad, Lionel, or my uncle, had survived. Throughout this torturous ordeal, days turned into nights. And after fitful sleep, nights turned back into days of endless, fruitless searching. My top assistant, Ernestine,

VIEWS Donna Brazile worked nonstop. She held vigils and organized relief packages. She found people with news and passed it on – news that allowed us to keep fighting for the victims of Katrina. Ernestine was one of many angels who helped my family survive Katrina. She was smart, savvy, and strove to learn politics. After a semester on Capitol Hill interning for then-Sen. Hillary Clinton, she joined the staff of my small consulting firm, Brazile and Associates. For years, Ernestine was

my right hand. We became friends. I will never forget her diligence and especially her support of not just my family, but of countless other families across the Gulf Coast. Today, Ernestine is suffering. Her family is tragically in the crosshairs of a raging epidemic of Ebola in Sierra Leone in Africa. Here is what she told me by email when I asked her about her loved ones. “[As for family], to be honest, we are all worried. We have been able to locate some and convince them to move out of the high-risk areas. We are all keeping regular checks on them. Social media has helped a lot to track down people.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

See BRAZILE, page 35

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR inaccessible locations, etc. In Florida, a Republican legislator was overheard bragging about how their proposed system would keep a lot of black people from voting. There are a lot of myths surrounding both of these issues, and it’s difficult to find the truth. But if you do any serious reading about them, you’ll find the perspectives shown by these previous letter writers are just dead wrong. Charles Teeter, Plainfield

Kudos to the city To the Editor: Kudos to the City of Joliet! We were at the Fan Rally and used the Ottawa Street parking deck. We were pleased to see it clean and repainted, and a welcome sight to any Joliet visitor, demonstrating that Joliet is a great city to visit and work. Mark Turk, Joliet

WHO: 2.2 doctors for every 100,000 of Sierra Leone’s population in 2012 • BRAZILE Continued from page 34 “We sent a package last week of some hand sanitizers and money to help buy chlorine. Chlorine is sprayed on hands and utensils to kill the virus. “It has been a tough week with news that a possible family friend might have Ebola and of the upcoming three-day government shutdown in Sierra Leone,” she wrote. Sierra Leone is one of the three nations [with Guinea and Liberia] hardest-hit by the disease. The three-day shutdown began this week. Everyone will be quarantined. Twenty-one thousand volunteers will go door-to-door during the curfew, looking for signs of the fearsome Ebola. It was Ernestine’s emails about the reality in her home that made me realize Ebola is more than just a regional problem in Africa. This is a crisis of the first order.

In pledging 3,000 U.S. troops and a half-billion dollars in funds to fight Ebola in Africa, President Barack Obama said, “Ebola is now an epidemic of the likes that we have not seen before. It’s spiraling out of control – with profound political and economic and security implications for all of us.” Last week, a group of American scientists projected the outbreak could last 18 months with hundreds of thousands infected. Ernestine visited her husband, Sam, in April, a month before the outbreak there. She’s kept in contact, and wrote of the impact: “What causes fear and anxiety is the knowledge that the actual number of infected people is unknown. ... The biggest loss to Sierra Leone was four notable doctors who died helping Ebola patients. Furthermore, the increased isolation from other countries has caused a food shortage and increased inflation.” Every doctor is essential in Sierra Leone; the World

Health Organization reports there were 2.2 doctors for every 100,000 of Sierra Leone’s population in 2012. There are reports people have stopped shaking hands and hugging one another. Ernestine said some relatives had to abandon their house because of the rapid transmission of the disease in their neighborhood from just a single case. “My uncle Jonas Blango ... passed away last month,” Ernestine wrote. “He did not die from Ebola, but [because of] the stigma inflicted on the dead, many family members were afraid to attend his funeral for fear of being infected.” The nationwide lockdown “will put a hardship on a lot of family members who have limited access to resources. Our family raised funds to help those in need to buy food, water and supplies needed during the shutdown,” said Ernestine. Lack of funds prompted a walkout in eastern Sierra Leone by 80 Ebola health work-

ers who hadn’t been paid in two weeks. Experts predict $1 billion will be needed just to treat and prevent the disease. Noting the urgency of the situation, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said, “We don’t need all this time-consuming, so-called consultation or consensus building. There is a consensus already that this is very serious and urgent. This spreads and doubles in three weeks’ time. So it’s a matter of take action. We have to save the people. That’s the main purpose, to take immediate action.” The United States and the international community will be committing resources, and if you would like to contribute to containing Ebola and helping victims, Doctors Without Borders, UNICEF, the American Red Cross and the World Food Program all could use your support. The United States Agency for International Development website has a longer list of 37 organizations working to fight Ebola.

This crisis reminds me of the early days of Katrina when the government had yet to marshal a response. It was then Ernestine pitched in and helped hundreds of Americans. It’s our turn to pitch in and help.

We had a new quarterback since Kelvin hurt his shoulder and we used him at tailback. Anthony stepped in and threw some very good balls for a first varsity game, especially late.” After scoring 24 points in its first three games, Central had one of its most productive showings of the past two years, but missed opportunities likely prevented the elusive win. “In the past couple years, we’ve been snake-bitten,” Wildcats coach John Jackson said. “We had two touchdowns taken away because of penalties. We just make crucial

mistakes at bad times and in this conference, you just can’t make those kinds of mistakes. It’s very frustrating for all of us. But the kids’ effort was great and they worked hard. I was obviously pleased with the way that Marcus played and we had some kids who made key runs.” Hayes completed nine of 22 passes for 126 yards while rushing for 181 yards on 17 carries. He opened his team’s scoring with a 35-yard run and later completed a 15-yard scoring pass to Nate Graves. Akwasi Aikins scored on a 1-yard run with 1:08 left in the first half to give Central a 19-14 lead.

Tigers top Eagles for first time in 13 years By LARRY LINDHOLM Shaw Media Correspondent ORLAND PARK – After last week’s blowout SouthWest Suburban Blue loss to Homewood-Flossmoor, Joliet West’s goal was to erase that negative memory in a hurry. Mission accomplished, as the Tigers came away with a huge 21-10 road conference victory Friday over Sandburg. “The past is the past and the future is now,” coach Jason Aubry told his team afterward. West (3-1, 1-1) scored first when junior quarterback

“Evan (French) kept his focus and his play turned it around. We told our kids they had to play much better because this is a conference where every game is tough.” Jason Aubry, Joliet West football coach Alex Tibble threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to tight end Alex Choate late in the first quarter. Sandburg (2-2, 1-1) crawled back within 7-3 on a field goal with 3:37 left in the second quarter. But on West’s next play

from scrimmage, Tibble hit Evan French for a 80-yard touchdown pass. The duo connected for an 84-yard score two weeks earlier against King. “Evan kept his focus and his play turned it around,” Aubry said. “We told our kids

they had to play much better because this is a conference where every game is tough.” Sandburg scored on a 10play, 95-yard drive in the third quarter to get within 14-10. However, the Tigers marched 80 yards in 11 plays and scored on Brenton Thompson’s 3-yard run to account for the final score. West’s Roman Johnson intercepted a pass at the 5-yard line and returned it to the 30, effectively putting it away. “This is the biggest victory for this program in years,” Aubry said. “This is a program builder. We hadn’t beat-

en Sandburg in the last 13 years, and we did it. We asked the kids at practice to make a statement on the field, and they did.” Tibble threw for 266 yards to key the victory. “Alex can run and he can throw,” Aubry said. “And he can lead. But most of all, he’s a quality kid and that makes all the difference.” West hosts Bolingbrook next week. Aubry told his team, “We can compete in this league if you come to do your job.” The Tigers sophomores fell 24-14.

PLAINFIELD – Anthony Kitchens didn’t perform like a backup quarterback Friday in Romeoville’s Southwest Prairie Conference game at Plainfield Central. The junior, filling in for Kelvin Jones, threw for three touchdowns, including a 10yard pass to Manuel Nartey with 34 seconds left, to rally the Spartans to a 30-26 win over the Wildcats. Central (0-4, 0-2) was on the verge of snapping its 14-game losing streak after taking a 26-14 lead with 8:45 left when sophomore quarterback Marcus Hayes scored on an 18-yard run. But the Spartans (1-3, 1-1) responded 20 seconds later with a 78-yard scoring strike from Kitchens to D’lante Dawson. Kitchens then completed four of seven pass attempts on his team’s winning drive, which featured two fourth-down conversions. A week ago, Romeoville lost, 33-30, to Minooka after a touchdown pass with 12 seconds left. “Last week, Minooka made the last play on us and this week we were in the position to make the last play,” Spartans coach Jeff Kuna said. “It was a complete team effort. We punted and covered punts well

Kitchens completed 15 of his 34 passes for 232 yards with his main target being Dawson, who hauled in a 50-yard pass in the first quarter to open the scoring. Dawson finished with five receptions for 144 yards. Jones ran for 45 yards plus three two-point conversions. “I had to do what I had to do and step up for the team,” Kitchens said. “We just came out and made plays today. Hopefully, we can keep on winning and we’ll see what happens.” Nartey caught three passes, but the first set up Gil Whitaker’s 4-yard scoring run in the second quarter to put the Spartans up, 14-7, and his last reception came on a fourthand-nine play near the right sideline in the end zone for the eventual game-winner. “It could not be more dramatic than that,” Nartey said. “We had a first-time quarterback and didn’t miss a beat. Anthony put the ball where it needed to be and I had to be aggressive and get to the ball. He was nervous at first but we help each other and pick each other up. This was a team victory and we got contributions in all three parts of the game.” Dawson, who also had a long interception return, pointed to the clutch play of Kitchens and of his teammates in helping the Spartans capture the critical victory.

a little but didn’t break. We faced some adversity and came through it.” “You have to give all the credit to our defensive line on that last series,” JCA coach Dan Sharp said. “That sack on third down was the game winner.” Borgra had scored on a 33yard run to get JCA back within 24-21 late in the third quarter and on an 11-yard run with 9:33 left to give the Hilltoppers their 28-24 lead. JCA led, 13-7, early in the second quarter but fell behind, 14-13, at halftime, then 21-13 and 24-13 before the Hilltoppers’ offense kicked into gear. St. Viator finished with 464 total yards and 24 first downs while JCA totaled 305 yards and 18 first downs. “I thought the adjustment

[co-offensive coordinator] Jim Sharp made, putting both of our speed guys, Michael Johnson and Harold Davis, out in a twins set loosened up their defense, and we were able to get Borgra going,” Dan Sharp said. “This was Nick’s kind of game. He gets tough yards, and he has a little speed when he breaks it.” Borgra rushed the ball 23 times for his 186 yards, gaining 139 yards on 15 carries in the second half alone. Quarterback Cade Early hit 7 of 12 passes for 77 yards and one touchdown, an 11-yard strike to Harold Davis. He also threw a two-point conversion pass to fullback Drew Voss to slice the Hilltoppers’ deficit to 24-21 “We definitely had to make adjustments,” Borgra said.

“We started off slow, but after we made adjustments, we were able to go at it 100 percent. “I give all the credit to my offensive line [tackles Tyler Witt and Ethan Emerson, guards Ze’Veyon Furcron and Krumviede and center Brandon Kaminski] and to Drew Voss and [tight ends] Jacob Elliott and Jake Kinsella. There isn’t anyone I would rather have blocking for me than all those guys.” As strong as St.Viator is offensively, Borgra said the Lions also bring it defensively. He cited linebacker Collin Rustay. “That middle linebacker, No. 51, I have to give it to him,” Borgra said. “He’s tough. They’re just a really good team. It’s awesome to win this one.” St. Viator won the sophomore game, 14-7.


Providence ignores ‘trap,’ rolls over Marmion By SCOTT EHLING Shaw Media Correspondent

NEW LENOX – After last week’s emotional win over Chicago Catholic Blue rival Mount Carmel, Providence faced Marmion on Friday night. Next week, Providence travels to St Rita. The conditions were right for a “trap” game. Providence coach Mark Coglianese and his coaching staff told the Celtics to stay focused, and they did not disappoint, defeating Marmion, 37-7, in a Chicago Catholic Blue crossover game. “We told the kids that this was a trap game and to their credit they responded well,” Coglianese said. “We didn’t play perfect but they played really well.” Celtics senior wide receiver Miles Boykin caught six passes for 129 yards and three touchdowns and the defense allowed only 30 yards of total offense in the first half. Providence (4-0) was almost surgical-like on offensive. Senior quarterback Justin Hunniford (16 of 20, 208 yards and three touchdowns), soph-

omore running back Richie Warfield (20 carries, 128 yards and two touchdowns) and Boykin carved up the Cadets defense both through the air and on the ground. “The chemistry that we have on offense right now shows from all of the off-season work that we did together,” Boykin said. “We really wouldn’t be here without the practice.” Marmion (3-1, 1-0) dodged two quick bullets when a punt return touchdown and Providence’s first play from scrimmage, both of which went the distance, were negated because of penalties. “It was a shame for those kids but those are things that we have to correct,” Coglianese said. Providence overcame the penalties and struck first Hunniford connected with Boykin on a 26-yard pass to give the Celtics a 6-0 lead with 4:53 left in the first quarter. A fumbled punt return set up Providence at the Marmion 33-yard line. Four plays later, Warfield scored on a 2-yard run to make it 13-0. The Celtics’ defense forced

a quick three-and-out by Marmion and gave the offense a short field to work with from midfield. “We try to get three-andouts as much as we can and allow our offense to get back out on the field,” senior defensive lineman Jake Rost said. “If we help the offense out, we know they are going to help us out as well.” “Our defense has been playing well all year,” Coglianese said. “Our D-line is quick and our linebackers are smart. They did a great job tonight.” Three plays later, Hunniford connected with Boykin on a slant pattern for a 45yard touchdown and a 20-0 lead. Providence, whose sophomore won, 21-6, put the game out of reach in the third quarter as Boykin hauled in his third score on a 22-yard pass from Hunniford for a 30-0 lead. “Those two [Hunniford and Boykin] are definitely linked up,” Coglianese said. “We have all the confidence in the world with Justin at the helm and knock on wood that that continues.”

JOLIET – Nobody ever said it would be easy. Nick Borgra rushed for 186 yards and three touchdowns and defensive end Joe Frescura’s sack in the final minute helped Joliet Catholic escape East Suburban Catholic Conference foe St. Viator, 28-24, Friday night at Memorial Stadium. Lions’ elusive quarterback Tyler Johnston was a pain to the JCA defense all night. He completed 28 of 50 passes for 364 yards a touchdown. With the Hilltoppers leading, 28-24, Johnston drove St. Viator (2-2, 1-1) to a first down at the JCA 17-yard line midway through the fourth quarter. But the Lions’ Ben Dickey tried to

make a big play on a jet sweep, reversing his field twice, and lost 14 yards to effectively end the threat. The Lions regained possession at their 19 with 2:22 left and drove to a third-and-9 at the 40 of JCA (3-1, 2-0) when Frescura sacked Johnston for an 11-yard loss. Frescura and Chase Krumviede then applied the pressure on the fourth-down play and linebacker Mike Gruben intercepted the pass to end it. “That’s the biggest sack I’ve ever had,” said Frescura, who also had an earlier sack to snuff out a scoring threat, plus a handful of hurries. “He [Johnston] is elusive. You have to keep chasing him and you can’t let him escape. “I have a lot of respect for their offense. Our defense bent

Lentini, Viertel power Plainfield S. past North

Minooka can’t catch up to Oswego

The Herald-News / TheHerald-News.com • Sunday, September 21, 2014


Cougars scored 7 points in first three games By KEVIN RYAN Shaw Media Correspondent PLAINFIELD – After scoring only seven points in its first three games, Plainfield South found its identity in Friday night’s Southwest Prairie Conference battle as the Cougars upset favored Plainfield North, 41-34, in overtime. Plainfield North (2-2, 1-1) dominated the first quarter, creating a sizable 21-0 lead. Junior quarterback JD Ekowa, who completed 2 of 7 passes for 46 yards, got the Tigers rolling with a 24-yard touchdown pass to junior tight end Kyle Speas. Senior running back Quintin Hoosman (34 carries, 228 yards) had rushing touchdowns of 30 and 68 yards. In second quarter, the Cougars (1-3, 1-1) found their rhythm on both sides of the ball. After several big stops by the defense, South found the end zone on a trick play. Senior quarterback Branden Lentini, who was 27 of 46 passing for 247 yards, completed a toss behind the line of scrimmage to wide receiver Cristian Carrillo. Carrillo then found a wide-open Cody Viertel for a 46-yard touchdown. Viertel caught six passes for 144 yards After a miscue on a Tigers’ punt, South recovered the ball and started a drive on North’s 19-yard line. A few plays later, Lentini sneaked in for a touchdown and the Cougars had cut the lead to 21-14 going into halftime. “We started executing much better up front,” South coach Ken Bublitz said. “Guys were catching the ball and we adjusted some of our routes based on what we saw

Plainfield South’s Jake Maher (19) looks for some running room past the Plainfield North defense Friday during South’s 41-34 overtime victory.

“We started executing much better up front. Guys were catching the ball and we adjusted some of our routes based on what we saw defensively.” Ken Bublitz Plainfield South football coach

defensively.” To open the second half, both teams scored touchdowns. The Tigers’ Chris Dunning returned a kickoff 98 yards to start the third quarter. Lentini found Viertel on a 34-yard touchdown pass to make it 28-21. North answered, driving 80 yards on its next possession to make it 34-21 after Ekowa scored on a 3-yard touchdown run. In South’s first possession of the fourth quarter, Lentini’s scamper reached the end zone on a 13-yard run to make it a

one-possession game at 34-28. The Cougars’ defense came up with another huge stop to give their offense one last chance with 50 seconds left. Going down to the final play with 1.4 seconds left, Lentini connected with Viertel on his third touchdown to tie the game. South failed on the extra point to force overtime at 34-34. “On that last drive I just wanted to show everybody we as a offense can do things,” Lentini said. “[Viertel] and I have been ‘bros’ for a long time. We just have a connection and we know what each other is going to do.” On the first play in overtime, South took the lead with a 10-yard run from Lentini to go up 41-34. The Cougars defense held their ground as the Tigers made a push toward the end zone but came up short. “ W h a t a g u t t y p e r f o rmance,” Bublitz said. “We had so many opportunities to lay down, and our guys didn’t do it. I couldn’t be more proud of our group.”

MINOOKA – When you are playing a team that has won 22 straight conference games, everything has to go your way from the start if you are going to break that streak. Unfortunately for Minooka, that did not happen Friday night, as the Indians spotted Oswego a 21-0 lead midway through the second quarter and the Panthers kept pace with any attempt at an Indian comeback. Oswego won, 28-14. Minooka, which won the sophomore game, 28-14, saw a defender slip on a short pass in the flat with Oswego already leading, 7-0, late in the first quarter. Panthers receiver Zach West took advantage, slipping past the fallen defender and raced 76 yards for a touchdown, giving Oswego a 14-0 lead with five seconds remaining in the first quarter. In the second quarter, Oswego’s Treshon Weddington broke through a hole on the right side and went 29 yards for a touchdown to give the Panthers a 21-0 lead. Minooka, however, quickly countered. Four runs by senior running back Nate Gunn moved the ball from the Minooka 30 to the 49-yard line. Then, sophomore quarterback John Carnagio hit Jacob Adams for a 51-yard touchdown pass to make it 21-7. Oswego had an answer of its own, embarking on an eight-play, 64-yard drive that ended with a 4-yard touchdown run by Weddington. Key in the march was a 38yard pass from Carter Turnquist to Joseph Hennessy on fourth-and-3 from the Minooka 45. After a scoreless third quarter, Minooka marched 80 yards on a drive that end-

ed with a 5-yard touchdown pass from Carnagio to Gunn to give Oswego a 28-14 lead with 8:03 to play. The Indians’ defense then forced a punt, but it was downed at the Minooka 5-yard line. The Indians turned it over on downs at their own 29-yard line, and Oswego ran out the final 3:16. “We were very physical tonight,” Minooka coach Paul Forsythe said. “We shut them out in the second half, but we got ourselves in too many long situations on offense. They were able to make some plays on third and fourth down in the first half, and we didn’t make quite as many. “We saw some good things tonight. Like I said, our defense stepped up and shut them out in the second half. They [Oswego] like to line it up and say ‘Stop us if you can.’ Our guys rose to the occasion that way, but our offense sputtered a little bit.” If Minooka can eliminate some of the mistakes and penalties, Forsythe said, the team will be fine. “We are a good football team,” he said. “I believe that and the kids believe that. There’s still a lot of season left.” Gunn finished with 116 yards on the ground and 41 more receiving, while Carnagio threw for 201 yards, completing 20 of 35 passes without an interception. Oswego’s Weddington ran for 168 yards and two touchdowns. “I thought John did a nice job tonight,” Forsythe said. “We knew that Oswego likes to bring a lot of pressure, and he did a good job of rolling out to get away from it and keeping his eyes downfield. “We did a lot of good things. We just need to clean some things up and keep pressing on.”

West runs away with victory By JOSH MANDER Shaw Media Correspondent

University of St. Francis’ John Magee (left) dives in for a touchdown Saturday against Trinity International. USF won, 44-30, at Memorial Stadium in Joliet.


Resilient Saints rally to top Trojans By DICK GOSS dgoss@shawmedia.com JOLIET – For the better part of three quarters Saturday, University of St. Francis made enough mistakes in special teams and elsewhere, and failed to capitalize on enough red-zone opportunities to leave any football team frustrated. However, coach Joe Curry always preaches the value of playing four quarters. His Saints trailed nonconference foe Trinity International, 17-16, at halftime and 30-22 after three quarters in the battle of unbeatens at Memorial Stadium. In the fourth quarter, it was a different story as the USF defense led the charge in what grew into a 4430 victory. Nose tackle Ali Aqel fell on Trinity’s fumbled handoff at the Trojans’ 19-yard line early in the fourth quarter. Quarterback Trace Wanless rushed three times to get the ball to the 2, and Plainfield South

graduate John Magee flew into the end zone from there. Wanless’ two-point conversion pass to Brandon Noland tied it at 30. “You have to have a nose for the goal line,” Magee said. “I just started doing that dive for the goal line this year. That’s the second time I did it.” After a Trinity interception, Calvin Brayboy (Bolingbrook) forced a fumble on a sack and fellow defensive lineman Albert Cruse recovered. Two plays later, Wanless hit Troy Torrence with a 6-yard touchdown pass to put the Saints ahead for good. Pete Cimino, making amends for an earlier fumbled punt, caught a boot on the fly and took it to the Trinity 22 to set up the final touchdown; Magee’s 5-yard run. “It was sloppy at first, but we brought it together in the second half,” Magee said. “Our team is resilient,” Curry said. “We’re not foolish enough to think we only have to play a half or three quar-

ters. If we keep battling, I like our chances.” The Saints fell behind, 2316, with 5:54 left in the third quarter, but fifth-year senior Ryne Van Gennep (Lincoln-Way East) got them right back in it. He caught a Wanless pass toward the sideline, bounced off Torrence, who was blocking and was pushed into him, and took it all the way to make it 23-22 after USF’s second extra-point miss of the day. “For five years, Ryne has done all we asked and he never complained,” Curry said. “Last year he was a receiver, this year he’s more of an H-back type. It was good to see him make a big play.” “Ryne was fighting for the quarterback job and that didn’t work out, but he’s doing a great job,” Magee said. Van Gennep said the important thing was that he took the ball to the house. “I pinballed off Troy [Torrence]. It was exciting,” Van Gennep said. “They’re mess-

ing with me – I don’t think they know I have jets like that. If I had gotten caught, that would be the talk the rest of the week.” Trinity International came back and scored again, but the Saints’ big fourth quarter loomed. USF totaled 525 yards of offense as Wanless passed for 180 and ran for 99. Magee rushed for 72 and Malik Norman 61. Torrence caught six passes for 65 yards. Mitch Brozovich (Minooka) spelled Wanless, as usual. He hit 6 of 9 passes for 81 yards and rushed for 30 yards, including a 20-keeper to clinch the win. Linebacker Ken Mason led the Saints’ tackle chart with 11 and Jesse Hogan and Brett Ditchman (Lincoln-Way Central) had eight apiece. USF was without linebacker Mike Passo (JCA), who sat with a thumb injury. The Saints (3-0) visit Saint Xavier for a huge game Sept. 27.

NEW LENOX – Lincoln-Way West faced an improved SouthWest Suburban Red opponent Friday in Thornwood. In front of a packed house, the Warriors (4-0, 2-0) started strong and did not disappoint, finishing with a 34-20 victory. The first half featured the Warriors’ ability to control the line of scrimmage and run the ball. West put together an eight-play, 80-yard drive to open the game. The drive was capped off by a 32-yard touchdown pass from sophomore quarterback Dino Borrelli to Kurtis Flondor. After a strong opening-drive effort from West’s defense, Thornwood pinned the Warriors on their 1-yard line on the ensuing punt. West’s offense then mounted a 14-play, 99-yard drive, which ended in a 1-yard touchdown run by junior Adam Knerr. Knerr and junor Gabe Montalvo led the Warriors’ attack, which accumulated 220 yards on the ground. Montalvo scored touchdowns from 8 and 6 yards. Kicker Mike Pratl added field goals from 33 and 38 yards. He was 2 for 3, barely missing a 46-yard attempt. Despite offensive production of more than 300 total yards, West coach Dave Ernst felt the performance was a bit lackluster. “We need to get better, we’re making too many mistakes.” Ernst said. “We’ve got to clean things up and we will.” Thornwood gave the Warriors a scare by scoring on an 88-yard touchdown pass from Travis Robinson to Darion Davis to get within 27-20 midway through the fourth quarter. “Thornwood is much improved over the last year,” Ernst said. “I think their coaches have done a great job.”

Lincoln-Way Central rolls to homecoming win Pipiras becomes first female to play, score in program history By DRAKE SKLEBA Shaw Media Correspondent NEW LENOX – Homecoming proved to be a rousing success for Lincoln-Way Central on Friday. The Knights scored 42 points and piled up 360 yards of offense, all during the first half, in a 42-10 SouthWest Suburban Red victory over Andrew. Senior tailback Sean Studer did all of his damage in the first half, rushing for 165 yards and two touchdowns. Senior quarterback Connor Campbell threw a pair of touchdown passes and ran for another. He threw for 92 yards and rushed for 82. In its opening series, Central marched 73 yards on 14 plays with Campbell crashing in for the score from the 1-yard line. Junior Parker Aftanas kicked the first of his five extra points for a 7-0 lead. After the Knights (3-1, 2-0) forced a three-and-out, they put together an 80-yard march in 12 plays with Studer capping the drive with his 4-yard run. Studer electrified the huge homecoming crowd when he dashed 50 yards for the third Knight score one minute into the second quarter. “I owe it all to my offensive line,” Studer said. “They opened up huge holes and all I had to do was run through them. This was a great victory for us on homecoming. Everyone played great.” Knights junior Dan Eber scored from 6 yards out to give the Knights a 28-0 lead with 7:40 in the half.

Eber finished with 31 yards on seven carries. Andrew (1-3,0-2) scored on a 52-yard fumble return by junior Ryan Heft to pull it to within 28-7. Campbell hit senior wide receiver Mark Bechtold for a 5-yard scoring strike with 2:35 left in the half. History was made when senior placekicker Bailey Pipiras kicked the extra point. She became the first female to play and score for the varsity in the program’s history. “It felt really nice to kick the extra point,” Pipiras said. “I’m really grateful for the opportunity. This was a great win for us.” Campbell closed out the Knights’ scoring on a 47-yard strike to senior wide receiver Jared Redder with 49 seconds left in the half. “We were really firing on all cylinders,” Campbell said. “The offensive line was great again and Sean had a typical Sean day. We have been looking forward to a performance like this all season and are really confident as we move on to the rest of the season.” The Knight offensive line dominated the entire half. Seniors Ryan Morgan, David Vice, Max Ancira, Bryan Ditchman, Alex Davidson, Jake Ruzas and junior Jack Dennison deserve special mention. “The kids really played great,” Knights coach Hud Venerable said. “Offense, defense and special teams all played well. A great victory for homecoming. “We’re improving defensively. It was nice to see our passing game with Connor do so well. We would like to have a more balanced attack. I’m very pleased with our improvement each week. Another big game on the road for the Knights next week.” The Knights’ sophomores kicked off homecoming festivities with an 18-14 victory.

East holds off Lockport challenge By JEFF DEGRAW Shaw Media Correspondent LOCKPORT – Lincoln-Way East continued its dominance for the 10th consecutive regular-season game Friday night with a 28-25 SouthWest Suburban Blue victory over Lockport, but it wasn’t easy. Liam Morrissey, the Griffins’ tailback, rushed for 150 yards on 33 carries and scored three touchdowns. Quarterback Mike Weller was 13 of 19 for 212 yards and wideout Paul Gossage had nine catches for 125 yards for East (3-1, 2-0). Not to be outdone, Porters quarterback Jeremy Quade was 13 for 19 for 186 yards. Sean Kelley caught five passes for 151 yards and Corey Savage added two touchdowns. “We knew when Lockport hired coach [Dan] Starkey they would get things turned around and quick,” Griffins coach Rob Zvonar said. “I am disappointed in some aspects of our game. But give Lockport all the credit. They came to play.” Zvonar was referring to 80 penalty yards in the first half and nearly 130 for the game.

“I’m so proud of these kids,” Porters coach Dan Starkey said. “They had a good week of practice. They practiced with a purpose. We showed a lot of growth and maturity this week and in this game.” East’s Luke Epich intercepted a Quade pass on Lockport’s first drive, and six plays later, the Griffins took a 7-0 lead on Weller’s 1-yard run. They came back with an 11-play drive capped off by a Morrissey touchdown to take a 14-0 lead at the end of the first quarter. Lockport (0-4, 0-2) rebounded with the help of a 60-yard pass play from Quade to Kelley and Savage ran the last 2 yard to make it 14-7. Then with 4:24 to go before halftime, Drevko Martarano kicked a 28-yard field goal to cut the lead to 14-10. East scored with 41 seconds left in the half on a Morrissey 3-yard run to take a 21-10 lead. The key play in that drive was a dual catch by the Griffins’ Logan Winkler and Lockport defensive back Deiondre Taylor. The officials ruled the catch went to the Griffins. With 7:22 to go in the

game, Lockport scored on an 18-yard run by Matt Skobel, and a pitch to Taylor and throw-back to Quade for the two-point conversion made it 21-18. The Griffins got a 26-yard touchdown run by Morrissey to make it 28-18 with 5:17 to go. Lockport answered with a five-play drive that featured four passes and a 1-yard touchdown run by Savage to make it 28-25. Gossage made a critical first down on a 13yard run to seal East’s victory. “We still have work to do,” Morrissey said. “I have to get better and make the plays when we need them.” Quade, Savage and Kelley talked about the focus the Porters had all week and in the game. “We focused the best all year, our line did a great job,” Quade said. “Quade told me to go deep when I scramble and I have to make the play,” Kelley added. Savage, who had his best game of the year, said, “It felt great to contribute for our team.” In the sophomore game, Lincoln-Way East beat the Porters, 34-14.

By PAUL D. BOWKER Shaw Media Correspondent OAK FOREST – Lemont attacked relentlessly by air in the 42-20 South Suburban Blue victory against Oak Forest on Friday night. Opponents better get used to Lemont’s strong offense. Senior quarterback Ryan Dawson passed for 269 yards and six touchdowns. Duke recruit Flynn Nagel tied a career high of four touchdowns. Jamie Glista and Jimmy Kepouros played well for Lemont with 42 yards on three carries and 55 yards on six carries, respectively. The Indians (4-0, 2-0) scored more than 40 points for the second time this season and are averaging 34.2 points a game, but against rival Oak Forest they really let the ball fly. “I was probably holding back the reins a little bit because it’s something new and we’re not used to chucking it like that,” Lemont first-year coach Bret Kooi said. “Sooner or later, you’ve got to cut things and see how it goes.” It went decisively well. In the first quarter, Dawson threw Nagel touchdown passes of 20, 12 and 6 yard.

Nagel finished the night with eight catches for 166 yards, including the 56-yard pass where he caught the ball between two Oak Forest defenders. He raced 30 yards for a touchdown. “I know every time that he [Nagel] is going to come down with it,” Dawson said. Dawson completed his first nine passes for 122 yards in the first quarter. “It felt good. The quarterback was getting the ball in the right spot,” Nagel said. “The O-line was blocking. Everybody was doing their job. When everybody does their job in our offense, I think we’re going to be really destructive.” Oak Forest (3-1, 1-1) cut Lemont’s lead to 28-20 on an explosive 69-yard run by Nick Czeszewski in the third quarter, but Dawson put the game away with scoring passes to Nagel and Glista. “The crazy thing of all is Jamie’s not even been discovered yet,” Kooi said. “He’s a pretty doggone good receiver himself. In my opinion, we’ve got a stable of three or four other guys that are pretty doggone good.” Lemont faces Midlothian Bremen at 7 p.m. Friday.

forwards to the defenders and everybody was in for the win,” Gallt said. “We knew what we had to do, scoring early in the second half, and did it in the first minute. Dominick Skrip, Michael Decker and Tommy Aviles were able to pass it back to the center mids and we were able to strike the ball and it worked great and we had a lot of shots. One of our goals was to win a tournament and we won this which is a huge lift.” While bad weather put an early halt to the teams’ initial meeting Sept. 5, the title match concluded just before storms rolled in. That was good news for the Cougars, who have another victory to build upon as they look forward to continued success. “I was really happy with today’s outcome since we worked real hard,” Hernandez said. “We finished the chances that we had, kept possession and played our game and got the win. I’m really enjoying playing with this team since it’s a group of really strong individuals and we know how to play as a team and that’s helped us win games.”

FRANKFORT – After yielding two goals to Bolingbrook in the first-round of the Lincoln-Way Invitational, Plainfield South’s boys soccer team put the clamps on its next few opponents. Coach Dave Brown’s Cougars blanked their next four tournament foes, and added an additional shutout in conference play against Plainfield North. Not surprisingly, those efforts paid off as South improved to 8-1-1 after defeating Joliet West, 2-0, in Saturday’s Lincoln-Way Invite title match at Lincoln-Way North. Parker Gallt scored a pair of second-half goals to lead South’s attack against the Tigers. Both squads have already surpassed last year’s win totals, when the Cougars collected six victories and West had four. Cougars keeper Eric Fischer didn’t face too many serious challenges from West to register the shutout, and part of the reason was the play of center backs Michael Santillo and Ben Graunke and out-

portunities, but Colin Marmoll, Hernandez and Gallt all were denied as the squads remained scoreless at the break. “We tip our hats to them since they’re a good team,” Tigers coach Patrick Korthauer said. “They play under control and play for possession, which is what we like to do when we’re clicking. But we have to start with high intensity from the first whistle and we didn’t see that and it was predictable. It was just a mentality out there. They were first to every ball and they were winning most corner kicks and deep throw-ins. A lot of it came down to will.” It didn’t take South long to move in front once the final half began, as Gallt fired in a long liner to put his team up for good in the 41st minute. He then scored an insurance goal in the 51st minute after getting free and connecting from close range. Gallt looked like he might add another goal to his total but one free kick bounced off the post and another went just wide of the mark in the only other serious threats in the half. “We played well from the

Plainfield South beats Joliet West for invite title

Minooka girls edge Yorkville to take invite title By CURT HERRON cherron@shawmedia.com CHANNAHON – The stage was set for a dramatic conclusion to Saturday’s 41st annual Minooka cross country Flight Invitational at Channahon Community Park. Coach Kevin Gummerson’s Indians and Yorkville entered the girls championship flight tied with 17 points with the top finisher between Minooka’s Ashley Tutt and Yorkville’s Skyler Bollinger determining the team champion. Bollinger was looking to become a rare three-time champion in Flight 1 while Tutt was just hoping to finish ahead of the Foxes’ standout. While Plainfield North’s Rachael Lau spoiled to drama somewhat by winning the title, Tutt and Bollinger still battled for second place with

the Minooka sophomore prevailing by seven seconds to give her team the championship by a 19-20 margin over Yorkville. It was Minooka’s fourth girls championship since 2003 and its first since 2007. Considering seven ranked teams were in the field and the Indians needed to win flights two through four before their runner-up effort, the team title was a big accomplishment. “This was a great team victory in a very competitive girls meet,” Gummerson said. “All seven girls had to go out there today and compete at a high level. It was a very close battle with an awfully impressive Yorkville team. Each and every one of these girls fought very hard out there today.” Lau, Tutt and Bollinger were packed together about two miles in and it was still

anybody’s race heading into the woods. But the Tiger junior grabbed the upper hand while Tutt was next. Lau won in 17:42, Tutt finished in 17:49 and Bollinger posted a time of 17:56. “Before the race, I knew it would depend on my race since we really wanted to win as a team,” Tutt said. “So I just went out there and tried to win. After hearing that the three girls before me won, it really motivated me to get going for my race. It was a battle between us the entire time but it kept going through my head that I had to do this for my team.” Minooka trailed Yorkville, 10-15, after the first four flights, two of which the Foxes won. But the Indians responded with consecutive wins from Emily Shelton (18:27), Morgan Crouch (18:37) and Mackenzie

Callahan (18:12) in flight two to create the 17-17 tie. The Indians also received a fourth-place effort from Emily Ellis (Flight 5) and fifths from Gaby Gall (Flight 6) and Caitlin Kurtz (Flight 7). “We were hoping to do really well as a team and each of us also do well individually,” Callahan said. “It felt really great to win a flight since I’m only a sophomore. I was really hoping to win and being able to win the flight was fun. Winning as an individual is great.” Lau, who was an all-stater as a freshman but was injured last season, is happy with how things have been going for her this year. “It was more of a race-strategy thing so I had to make sure that I raced smart,” Lau said. “It was nice coming in as an underdog since I didn’t

have a bullseye on my back. We went out kind of slow and it wasn’t my fastest time but it was nice to be able to control my race in the last mile. I’ve been practicing a lot of lower mileage and it’s really been keeping me fresh.” Lemont (45) took sixth while Plainfield North (56) placed eighth in the girls race. For the Indians, Celine Ratulowski was second (Flight 6) and Beata Drozda took third (Flight 5). In the boys competition, Neuqua Valley edged Yorkville, 12-13, for the title while Yorkville’s Jake Hoffert (14:55) won the championship flight. Minooka (57) was eighth while Plainfield North (66) finished tenth. North’s Jack Sebok (15:44) was fourth and Minooka’s Gabe Ceballos (15:54) took fifth in the championship flight.

Arkansas extends streak, downs NIU

Illinois running back Josh Ferguson runs for a 75-yard touchdown on the first play Saturday against Texas State at Memorial Stadium in Champaign.


Illinois survives scare By DAVID MERCER The Associated Press CHAMPAIGN – Trying to find a way to help Illinois hold onto a narrow lead Saturday, cornerback V’Angelo Bentley saw his opportunity in a fourth quarter pass thrown a little high. Bentley jumped in front the receiver, snatched the ball and headed 45 yards to the end zone, delivering relief for the Illini and a 42-35 weather-delayed win over Texas State. The head pats and hugs he got on the way to the sideline showed a degree of relief that’s become all too familiar for Illinois. Three times this season, the Illini (3-1) have headed to the fourth quarter trailing at home. And three times they’ve found a way, some way, to win. But with Big Ten play starting next weekend at Nebraska, the Illini said they can’t keep falling behind and desperately climbing back. “We’re still making too many mistakes to be successful,” coach Tim Beckman, who

delivered a couple of those pats, said. “That’s what we have to strive to do. We have to play four quarters of football. That’s very, very important to continue moving forward. We’re practicing it, the kids are working to get better, but we have to continue to get better going into Big Ten play.” Texas State (1-2) led, 21-6, in the second quarter but came up short against a team coach Dennis Franchione said he knew would come to life. “You kind of know they were going to make a surge,” Franchione said. He added that he didn’t believe the almost two-hour delay for lightning changed the game, though Illinois clearly came to life after it. Bentley’s interception and running back Josh Ferguson’s 190 yards and two touchdowns – one a 75-yarder – were just enough this week for the Illini. But that was only after Bobcats quarterback Tyler Jones threw and ran his team to that first-half lead. Jones threw for 336 yards and four touchdowns. He ran

for another score. Neither Jones nor Texas State made many mistakes Saturday. But two in the fourth quarter cost the Bobcats dearly. Illinois trailed, 28-25, and was faced with a fourth down at the Bobcats 16. Backup kicker David Reisner converted the field goal but Texas State’s David Mims knocked him down, giving Illinois an automatic first down. Four plays later Illini quarterback Wes Lunt hit receiver Mike Dudek on the run in the end zone for a 7-yard touchdown and a 32-28 lead with 7:42 left in the game. Even then, Texas State wasn’t done. An Illini field goal made the lead, 35-28, but the Bobcats got the ball back with 3 minutes left. Jones had been on so much of the day, making the right decisions in the Bobcats’ option offense. But on a first down at his own 39, he threw left and found Bentley. With the turnover, Illinois had breathing room at 42-28.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Arkansas is flat out having fun with its sudden turnaround at this point. Korliss Marshall returned the opening kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown, and Brandon Allen accounted for three touchdowns as Arkansas won its third straight game with a 52-14 victory Saturday over Northern Illinois. The win for the Razorbacks (3-1) snapped a 17-game road winning streak for the Huskies, whose last road loss came at Central Michigan in 2011. After extending a schoolworst losing streak to 10 games to open the season, Arkansas has outscored its last three opponents by a combined 125 points, 174-49. Allen was 15 of 22 passing for 199 yards and two touchdowns for the Razorbacks. He also ran for a score. Drew Hare threw for 179 yards and two touchdowns for Northern Illinois (3-1), which lost its first regular season game since 2012. Arkansas earned its first win over a power five conference team under second-year coach Bret Bielema with a 49-28 win at Texas Tech last week. Marshall wasted little time in carrying that momentum

forward against the Mid-American Conference program Saturday, following the blocks of Khalia Hackett and Keon Hatcher before sprinting for the opening touchdown. The kickoff return for a score to open the game was Arkansas’ first since Dennis Johnson did the same against Missouri State in 2009. The outcome was rarely in doubt after that, thanks in large part to the rejuvenated Allen – who played much of last season with a shoulder injury that limited his practice time and effectiveness. The junior connected for touchdown passes to Jared Cornelius and Hatcher, and his 2-yard touchdown scramble in the third quarter put the Razorbacks up 35-7. Allen has eight touchdown passes and one interception this season. Hatcher capped the Arkansas fun early in the fourth quarter, catching a 44-yard touchdown pass from Allen to put the Razorbacks up 45-14. The junior finished with six catches for 107 yards and the score. Northern Illinois entered the game no stranger to playing some of the top teams in the country, having defeated three Big Ten Conference teams during its road winning streak and playing in the Orange Bowl after the 2012 season.

Northwestern running back Solomon Vault (right) scores a touchdown past Western Illinois defensive back Myles Spearman (left) during the first half Saturday in Evanston. “We have to be there for each,” Vault said. “When he does good, I get happy. When I do good, he’s the first one there on the sidelines. I think we really have each others’ backs.”

The running backs had the offense’s back because the Wildcats weren’t able to produce much in the passing game. Quarterback Trevor Siemi-

an was 15 of 25 for 117 yards, and no receiver had more than three receptions or 21 yards receiving. Without top receivers Christian Jones (out for the season) and Tony Jones (lower


Roberts’ TD gives Indiana upset over No. 18 Missouri The ASSOCIATED PRESS COLUMBIA, Mo. – D’Angelo Roberts scored on a 3-yard touchdown run with 22 seconds remaining and Nate Sudfeld passed for 252 yards and a touchdown to help Indiana upset No. 18 Missouri, 31-27, on Saturday. After giving up 10 consecutive points to Missouri in the fourth quarter, the Hoosiers (2-1) traveled 75 yards on six plays to reclaim the lead. Tevin Coleman ran 44 yards to the Missouri 15-yard line to setup the game-winning score. Coleman finished with 132 yards on 19 carries. Utah 26, Michigan 10: At Ann Arbor, Michigan, Travis Wilson returned after a frighten-

ing fall in the first half to throw a third-quarter touchdown pass, and Utah finally finished off a 26-10 win over Michigan on Saturday after a lightning delay in the fourth quarter of 2 hours, 24 minutes. The game was delayed with 7:51 remaining, and when it resumed, not much was left of the announced crowd of 103,890. Michigan (2-2) was already down 26-10 at that point.

No. 24 Nebraska 41, Miami 31: At Lincoln, Nebraska, Ameer Abdullah ran for 229 yards to lead a punishing ground game, and No. 24 Nebraska celebrated the 20th anniversary of its 1994 national championship team with an emotional victory over Miami. The Cornhuskers (4-0) will

start Big Ten play next week off a performance that drew a Memorial Stadium record crowd of 91,585 that came to see a meeting of programs that combined for eight national titles from 1983 to 2001.

No. 11 Michigan State 73, Eastern Michigan 14: At East Lansing, Michigan, Connor Cook threw two touchdown passes and ran for a score as No. 11 Michigan State scored the third-most points in program history, smashing Eastern Michigan. Iowa 24, Pittsburgh 20: At Pittsburgh, Mark Weisman ran for 88 yards and two touchdowns, including a 1-yard plunge with 6:56 remaining as Iowa rallied for the win. The Hawkeyes (3-1) trailed

by 10 at the half but surged when C.J. Beathard replaced starting quarterback Jake Rudock in the third quarter. Rutgers 31, Navy 24: At Annapolis, Maryland, Justin Goodwin ran for 104 yards on 26 carries, replacing the injured Paul James, as Rutgers beat Navy. James left the game with an apparent leg injury with 11:01 left in the second quarter. He had 96 yards on seven carries before being helped off the field. Penn St 48, UMass 7: At State College, Pennsylvania, Bill Belton and Zach Zwinak rushed for a pair of touchdowns each, Christian Hackenberg threw for 179 yards and Penn State defeated Massachusetts. Purdue 35, S. Illinois 13: At

West LaFayette, Indiana, Purdue converted two first-quarter turnovers into touchdowns and used those 14 points as the springboard to a victory against Southern Illinois on Saturday.

No. 19 Wisconsin 68, Bowling Green 17: At Madison, Wisconsin, Melvin Gordon rushed for career highs of 253 yards and five touchdowns, and No. 19 Wisconsin ran for a Big Ten-record 644 yards to trample Bowling Green.

Maryland 34, Syracuse 20: At Syracuse, N ew York, C.J. Brown threw for 280 yards and two touchdowns, cornerback William Lively returned an interception 88 yards for another score, and Maryland beat mistake-prone Syracuse.

EVANSTON – Northwestern won its first game of the season Saturday, but coach Pat Fitzgerald said he isn’t planning on easing up on his players just yet. “My size-12 is going where the sun doesn’t shine with this team for the rest of the year,” he said. “It’s not gonna end until we get where we need to be. We’re not there yet; we’re far from being there.” Still, it was an improvement over the first two games. Solomon Vault rushed for two touchdowns, Justin Jackson had 92 yards rushing and a score, and Northwestern snapped a six-game home losing streak with a 24-7 victory over Western Illinois. Vault and Jackson, both freshman running backs, led the way as the Wildcats amassed 166 yards on the ground. Jackson had 21 carries for an average of 4.4 yards, while Vault had 31 yards on six carries, an average of 5.2. Both players may be competing for carries over the next four years, but right now neither views the other as competition.

body injury), the passing game just isn’t in sync. “We’ve been a different wide-receiver unit since midway in camp,” Fitzgerald said. “I don’t think there’s enough trust and continuity in the passing game.” Northwestern (1-2) had lost nine of 10 games going back to last season. The Wildcats began last season with four straight wins and finished at 5-7. Northwestern opened this season with losses against California (31-24) and Northern Illinois (23-15). Western Illinois (2-2) lost despite having a 376-283 advantage in total yards. Quarterback Trenton Norvell was 29 of 50 for 292 yards with a touchdown and an interception for WIU. Wide receiver Lance Lenoir had 11 receptions for 115 yards. But the difference was four turnovers by the Fighting Leathernecks and four NU sacks. “Unfortunately when you play teams of that caliber, you can’t make the kinds of mistakes we did today,” WIU coach Bob Nielson said. “We were minus-3 turnover margin and had two kicks blocked. You’re going to have a hard time beating anybody.”

Coghlan HR leads Cubs over Dodgers By ANDREW SELIGMAN The Associated Press CHICAGO – Chris Coghlan felt fortunate just to get an opportunity with the Cubs this season. He came through with a career game Saturday. Coghlan hit two homers, including the go-ahead tworun drive off Brian Wilson in the eighth inning, and the Cubs rallied to beat the Los Angeles Dodgers, 8-7. Coghlan tied career highs with four hits and three RBIs. He had a leadoff homer in the first and fell a triple shy of the cycle. He also scored three times, helping the Cubs wipe out a five-run deficit. Not bad, considering he signed a minor league deal with the Cubs in the offseason after being let go by Miami.

He got called up from Triple-A in early May and is hitting .283. “I just feel blessed at the opportunity I have,” said Coghlan, the 2009 NL Rookie of the Year with the Marlins. “They don’t come around. I had to sign a minor league deal and go to Triple-A and grind that out, get back up here. When they finally do open the door, when there’s an opportunity, you really got to kick it down and go through.” The Dodgers were looking to build on a 3½-game lead over San Francisco in the NL West after clinching a playoff spot for the fifth time in nine years on Friday. Instead, Los Angeles blew a five-run lead and wasted a pair of homers and five RBIs by Adrian Gonzalez.

The Dodgers were up, 7-2, in the seventh but the bullpen couldn’t hold it. J.P. Howell gave up an RBI single to Anthony Rizzo and a three-run homer to Arismendy Alcantara, making it a onerun game. Wilson (2-4) came on in the eighth and things just got worse from there. He gave up a leadoff single to light-hitting John Baker. Coghlan, who had four hits, put the Cubs ahead, 8-7, with a drive to right after Matt Szczur bunted into a force. “I have to accept the loss,” Wilson said. “I’m fine with that. We’re not going home. We still clinched a playoff berth.” Coghlan’s homer made a winner of Jason Grimm (52), who pitched a scoreless eighth.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Nick Franklin hit his first home run with Tampa Bay and Chris Archer pitched shutout ball into the seventh inning, leading the Rays to a 3-1 victory over the White Sox on Saturday night. Franklin connected against Hector Noesi in the second inning, belting a drive to right after a leadoff double by James Loney. Franklin had to wait 79 seconds for a replay review to determine if it was fair after it hit off a catwalk at Tropicana Field. Franklin was acquired from Seattle in the three-team trade that sent David Price to Detroit on July 31. He was playing in his fourth game for the Rays, having been recalled Monday from Durham. It was Franklin’s first homer since Aug. 29, 2013, with Seattle. Archer (10-8) allowed two hits and walked four in 6⅓ innings. The right-hander is 2-0 with a 1.83 ERA in his last three starts. Marcus Semien’s pinch-hit single off Jake McGee in the ninth, the Sox’s only hit after the fourth, drove in the only run. McGee finished the inning for his 18th save. The Rays, who were eliminated from playoff contention Friday night, were seeking their 22nd shutout. Their current total is the most by any American League team in the 41 seasons of the DH era. Ben Zobrist had two hits for Tampa Bay, including an RBI single in the fifth.

CARR GIVES BACK Former Lockport resident changing young lives with foundation If you go

By DENISE M. BARAN–UNLAND dunland@shawmedia.com


OCKPORT – Around the time former Homer Township resident Robert O. “Bob” Carr graduated from Lockport Township High School in 1963, he received a $250 scholarship and a plaque from the Lockport Woman’s Club. “It was nice, but it wasn’t enough to get me through college,” said Carr, now chief executive officer of Heartland Payment Systems in New Jersey. “But the recognition and the fact that they thought enough of me to give me that scholarship meant a lot to me.” Carr decided he would give back to that organization in a significant way when he could afford to do so, which he did in 2001, by donating $100,000 to the Lockport Woman’s Club for five $20,000 scholarships. Today, the Give Something Back Foundation is an organized program that provides 50 annual $20,000 scholarships, connects the low-income recipients with community mentors and keeps alumni in touch with each other. “I have been very fortunate in my career – the last 15 years especially – and I see a lot of people who are millionaires and billionaires and I think of all the things you can do with a lot of money,” Carr said. “The best thing I knew what to do with $20,000 was to put it to college. It changes their [students] lives and the lives of their parents, siblings and the community. It shows you can be successful. I can’t imagine anything more satisfying.” Success did not come readily or easily to Carr. His first job, while a student at Lockport Township High School, was writing three stories a week about LTHS sports for The Herald-News. It was, Carr said, the most satisfying job he ever had, but

BRIDGE by Phillip Alder

The signal signals a contract’s defeat


David Letterman said, “Traffic signals in New York are just rough guidelines.” There are other cities like that. In colorful Cairo, no one seemed to stop for a red light unless either other cars were crossing the junction or a police officer was standing there. Bridge defense signals are often only suggestions to partner, but sometimes are strict guidelines. In this deal, how should East and West play to defeat four spades after West leads a low heart in answer to his partner’s lead-directing double? North’s four-heart response was a Texas transfer. It guaranteed at least a six-card spade suit and either game-only or slam-going values. Yes, here North would have done better to respond three no-trump, but that might have backfired. When playing third hand high, East is supposed to put up the bottom of touching honors first – but not when he has ace-king-doubleton. Then, he takes the first trick with the ace and cashes the king, high-low with a doubleton. And if he can get West back on lead, East can receive a heart ruff to defeat the contract. But which minor should East lead at trick three? West must give East a suit-preference signal. If West’s entry is in the lower-ranking of the other two side suits, he plays his lowest heart at trick two. Here, though, because his entry is in the higher-ranking side suit, West drops his highest heart, the jack. Then East will know to shift to a diamond at trick three. West will take that trick and give his partner a heart ruff for down one. Signal as clearly as possible.

ADVICE Independent daughter wants less help from parents Dear Abby: I graduated from college, and I’m starting my first full-time job and moving into my first apartment. I bought all the furniture for it, but needed help moving in. My parents decided to drive five hours to my new home to transport the furniture in a truck they rented – without consulting me. While I appreciate their help because I would not have been able to lift some of the items on my own, I feel they have overstepped the normal boundaries of parenting an independent 27-year-old daughter. They also decided they would spend the night in my apartment and sleep in my newly purchased bed without asking me. Am I crazy for thinking my parents are not respecting my space? This is my first step out into the real world. – Becoming Independent In Illinois Dear Becoming Independent: How exactly did you plan to get the large items of furniture from point A to point B if your parents hadn’t stepped up to the plate?

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips They were attempting to help you as they always have, not violate you. Although they were mistaken, they assumed that after a fivehour drive plus doing the heavy lifting, they’d be welcome to stay the night and not have to check into a hotel. Because that wasn’t the case, you should have thanked them for their generosity and told them you had made other arrangements for getting the furniture transported and installed instead of resenting them for it. Your problem isn’t pushy parents; it’s that you didn’t speak up in the first place. Dear Abby: I’m a 27-year-old single mom, career-focused and driven in what I do for my son and me. I want the best for him. He is 3. I am having a hard time meeting someone who will accept the

two of us. Men come up to me all the time at work or when I’m out, but once I mention that I have a small child, it’s like they run and hide. If I wait and tell them later, they get upset that I didn’t bring it up earlier. I am ready to settle down and be a “family” with someone. How do I fix this? What should I do? – Lonely In Sugar Land, Texas Dear Lonely: You’re doing nothing wrong, and nothing needs “fixing.” A man who approaches you and then runs in the opposite direction when he learns you have a child, isn’t interested in the kind of relationship you’re looking for. He’s looking for fun, not continuity. So, be honest about your situation from the beginning. While the idea of settling down is nice, you need to do it with someone whose priorities align with your own, and the men you have met so far don’t qualify. • Write Dear Abby at www. dearabby.com.

Break in new shoes slowly to prevent friction blisters Dear Doctor K: I wore a new pair of hiking boots on my vacation and now have several painful blisters on my feet. What’s the best way to treat them? Dear Reader: It sounds like you have friction blisters. A friction blister is a soft pocket of raised skin filled with clear fluid, caused by irritation from continuous rubbing or pressure. The irritation – in your case caused by new hiking boots – slightly damages the skin. The uppermost layer of skin separates from the layer beneath, and fluid accumulates in the space that’s left. (I’ve put an illustration of a friction blister on my website, AskDoctorK.com.) If the blister also contains blood, it is called a blood blister. Friction blisters typically drain on their own within days. A new layer of skin forms beneath the blister and eventually the blistered skin peels away. As a result, friction blisters don’t generally require any special treatment. Be sure to keep the blisters clean and dry. And also keep them intact: The skin provides a natural protection against infection.

ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff Do not try to drain the blister or pierce or cut away the overlying skin. In doing so, you can allow bacteria to get into the wound and cause an infection. If a blister breaks on its own, wash the area with soap and water. Then gently pat it dry, use an antibacterial ointment and cover it with a bandage. Do this every time you get the blister wet (from swimming or from bathing) and at least once a day. If pressure or friction continues in the same area, the blister may last longer. Sometimes it is impossible to avoid further irritation (for example, if your new hiking boots were the only shoes you brought on your vacation). In this case, protect the blister with a more heavy-duty sterile bandage. Continued friction may cause the blister to break open, ooze fluid and become infected. See your doctor immediately if you think you have an infection, notice

significant redness or drainage that is not clear fluid, or develop a fever. To prevent friction blisters in the future, wear shoes that fit well. That means the shoe should not be tight anywhere and should not slide up and down your heel when you walk. Wear socks that have good elastic and don’t tend to bunch up. And try to keep your feet dry. When you buy new shoes or boots, break them in over a few weeks before taking long walks and hikes. It’s rare for brand-new shoes or boots to fit your feet well under conditions of maximum stress. Like you, I learned this the hard way. I bought a pair of new boots before taking a several-day hike in the New England mountains. By the second day, I had two fierce friction blisters, one on each foot. The trip was considerably less fun after that.

You will be a great teacher Dr. Wallace: I am in my second year at the University of California. I would like to teach English composition and literature on the high school level when I graduate, but I’m concerned that my physical disability will cause school districts to rule me out as a teacher candidate. For the past nine years, I have been unable to walk. My father and I were in a car that was hit head on by an intoxicated driver. My father was severely injured, and I suffered permanent injuries to my spine and legs. I get around by means of an electric-powered vehicle also known as a “wheelchair.” I’m very comfortable maneuvering around campus in my vehicle, and I’m positive that I could function without a problem teaching on the high school level if given the opportunity. Since you are a former high school administrator, I welcome your input. – Nameless, Berkeley, California Dear Nameless: The great majority of school districts would hire the best-qualified candidates to fill their teaching vacancies. When I was teaching English and coaching varsity basketball at Phoenix Union High School, one of the most respected teachers on campus was a gentleman confined to a “wheelchair.” He taught mathematics and was the freshman basketball coach. He was superb in both areas. The first day of basketball practice, I observed him to see if he could function as a coach. After a week, I accepted him as a knowledgeable basketball coach and didn’t

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace even give it a second thought that he was doing his thing with the assistance of a chair with wheels. My advice to you is to plan on being a high school English teacher because it’s going to happen. You will be a great teacher! Dr. Wallace: One of my good friends left town to live with her married sister and her husband to get rid of her boyfriend. She emailed me that she would fill me in with the details later. She said her boyfriend was abusing her emotionally. I really can’t grasp what that means. Please tell me what constitutes emotional abuse. – Karen, Michigan City, Indiana Dear Karen: Emotional abuse can take many forms: verbal attacks, belittlement, controlling, jealousy and threatening physical violence. For a female, this can mean that a male friend refuses to let her spend much time with her close friends; refuses to allow her to talk to other males; forces the female to keep a cell phone on her person so he can check on her whereabouts. When emotional abuse becomes the norm rather than the exception, the relationship should end. It’s too bad that your good friend had to escape out of town. It’s her boyfriend who should have exited the scene. • Email Dr. Robert Wallace at rwallace@ galesburg.net.

Kevin Kline (left) stars as Mathias Gold, and Maggie Smith stars as Mathilde Girard in a scene from “My Old Lady,” an adaptation of Israel Horovitz’s play that was directed by the playwright.

‘My Old Lady’: Stars try to save a difficult script By STEPHANIE MERRY The Washington Post Israel Horovitz proves it’s never too late to learn a new skill. At 75, the prolific playwright has directed his first feature film, an adaptation of his play “My Old Lady.” With dozens of produced plays to choose from, it’s interesting that Horovitz picked this one. It’s a problematic play that’s just as flawed on screen, although some excellent performances from Kevin Kline and Maggie Smith help make up for the script’s shortcomings. Kline plays Mathias Gold, an aging alcoholic with very little to show for his 50-odd years beyond three failed marriages and three unpublished novels. He uses the last of his meager savings to book a plane ticket to Paris to see the apartment his late father bequeathed to him. You can practically see the dollar signs floating in Mathias’s eyes as he walks in and surveys the place. The apartment is in Le Marais, and it’s huge with a lush back garden. Mathias – who really prefers to be called Jim – is already imagining life as a millionaire when his dream is cut short by the reality of the little old lady

living in the place. Mathilde (Smith) informs Mathias that this is a “viager,” a French real estate arrangement in which Mathias’s father bought the place from Mathilde for a small fee, but she has use of the apartment until she dies. And until then, Mathias must pay her a monthly fee of 2,400 euros. “Payable to you?” he says incredulously, before ever so casually asking, “How old are you?” Subtlety is not either character’s strong suit, but Mathias is particularly coarse. He ends up striking a deal to stay in the place until he can figure out a way to sell it. In the meantime, he tracks down Mathilde’s doctor to see how long she might live (answer: a very long time) and secretly loots the place, selling a few pieces of furniture for pocket change. In other words, Mathias is utterly despicable, but in the hands of Kline, the character is a joy to watch. The story falters with the introduction of Chloe, Mathilde’s daughter (Kristin Scott Thomas), who is enraged to find that Mathias is staying in her mother’s home, where Chloe also lives. She makes strange, occasionally unbelievable decisions, and comes across more like a tool for Mathias’s transfor-

mation than a fully formed character. As is so common in contemporary plays, the story hinges on a big reveal that helps to explain why Mathias is such a lout. Part of the reason – and this gives nothing away – is that his father was a deadbeat. He was never around, which left his wife constantly depressed and Mathias constantly alone. In this sense, it turns out Mathias shares quite a bit in common with Chloe, who has her own parental emotional baggage. Both characters are a mess, which makes the story’s tidy resolution feel too easy. That being said, as the emotions begin to run high, Kline’s performance is impeccable. For a moment, even after all of Mathias’s horrible, shameless behavior, Kline manages to make his character tragic, and the audience might momentarily feel for the guy. Horovitz may have made a questionable decision in adapting this particular play for the screen, but his casting was flawless.

• “My Old Lady” received two out of four stars. The film is rated PG-13 and contains thematic material and some sexual references. It runs 104 minutes.

BEST BETS ± 7 p.m. ABC 7 Once Upon a Time: “There’s No Place Like Home” concluded a two-part episode as well as the fantasy-drama series’ third season. Trying to get back to Storybrooke proves quite complicated for Emma and Hook (Jennifer Morrison, Colin O’Donoghue) since in doing so, they have to be careful not to do anything that alters history. If they do, it’ll drastically affect this saga’s two worlds and the inhabitants of both. Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas, now real-life spouses, also star.

± 8 p.m. on FOOD The Great Food Truck Race: In the new episode “Shrimpin’ Ain’t Easy,” Tyler challenges the three remaining teams to “cook locally” as they roll into Mobile, Ala. After enduring some frigid temperatures, one team walks away from a local wholesaler with nearly 100 pounds of free shrimp.

± 8 p.m. on LIFE Witches of East End: The title of this new episode — “The Fall of the House of Beauchamp” — doesn’t seem to augur well for the main characters as Joanna (Julia Ormond), devastated by Tarkoff’s (James Marsters) treachery, resorts to desperate measures.
