MCC claims need for expansion Health, wellness learning facility is much in demand, leaders say By CHeLSea McdougaLL CRYSTAL LAKE – McHenry County College officials are making the case for expanding health and wellness programs with a multimillion dollar building, a plan some have criticized as wasteful. The college is in the beginning

stages of a feasibility study that will determine whether a planned $42 million building expansion is possible. Preliminary plans call for a 120,000-square-foot building for health sciences and wellness classrooms, labs, a health clinic and a fitness center. “No matter what anybody says, there is no space for us to put those labs,” McHenry County

College President Vicky Smith said. An expansion would allow the college to grow programs in respiratory and physical therapy, and health information technology – programs that have been put on hold for lack of space. To maintain accreditation, health programs require dedicated classrooms. For example, only

nursing lab classes can be held in that space. When the college began its occupational therapy assistant program, it revamped existing classroom space to make room for a laboratory used only for those classes. “If these were business courses or English courses, they could

Talks on Ill. pension crisis end; no deal Lawmakers: Agreement still possible before session ends By SaRa BuRnett

deb glaubke and gale Harris reminisce over a scrapbook of the 1993 March on Washington for Lesbian, gay and Bi equal Rights and Liberation that they attended. glaubke, 69, and Harris, 73, have been together for 26 years and were joined in a civil union this past summer. By SaRaH SutSCHek


fter more than 20 years in a committed relationship with each other, Gale Harris and Deb Glaubke want to get married, but they can’t. Harris, 73, and Glaubke, 69, of Woodstock, are gay. “When you look around and see that 50 percent of all marriages end in divorce – and

we’ve been together for longer – then it shows that we are a stable family unit,” Glaubke said. An Illinois Senate committee voted, 8-5, late Thursday in favor of a bill that would allow gay marriage. But with key supporters absent, Senate Democrats delayed a full floor vote. Senate lawmakers are unlikely to return to Springfield before the session ends Wednes-

day, when new lawmakers will be sworn in and a new legislative session starts. Sen. Heather Steans, the bill’s sponsor, said it was a matter of “when, not if” the measure will pass. She said people across Illinois and state lawmakers are changing their minds every day and supporting gay marriage.

CHICAGO – Despite setting aside a major sticking point, Gov. Pat Quinn and legislative leaders failed to agree Saturday on the outlines of a deal that might begin to solve Illinois’ massive pension crisis, the worst of any state in the country. Coming out of the meeting, which lasted less than two hours, leaders from both parties said they better understood one another’s positions but that there still were many obstacles to producing a proposal to take to lawmakers before the end of the current General Assembly on Wednesday. “I’m just anxious to pass a bill,” said Democratic House Speaker Michael Madigan, who has agreed to drop for now his proposal to shift pension costs for public school teachers from the state to local districts, an idea that has been a major point of disagreement in negotiations. “I think that we ought to find a bill that we can all agree upon and pass that bill. Unfortunately there are still differences among the participants.” Madigan said he believes a deal is possible before Wednesday, and he and Quinn spokeswoman Brooke Anderson said talks would continue until the end of the session.

What’s left Among the remaining obstacles in negotiations are differences over cost-of-living adjustments for employees and retirees, asking workers to pay more, which approach the courts could consider constitutional and whether to include provisions to help Chicago with its pension crisis.

deadline The General Assembly wraps up its lame-duck session Wednesday. Gov. Pat Quinn has said he wants a deal before then.

Northwest Herald Web Poll Question

Humbled by ‘12 Days of Giving’ The holidays are over. We’re almost a week into the new year. A new Congress was sworn in last week. (Though it looks a lot like the old Congress.) A new General Assembly will be seated this week. (Ditto the above.) I feel like I should use this space to look forward into 2013, perhaps preach about what needs to be done to fix our state’s and our nation’s many economic woes. But the fact is, I don’t want to. I don’t feel like getting on my soapbox today. I’m tired of all the partisanship and fiscal cliff nonsense. Plus, I’ve still got a bit of that holiday cheer lingering. So, taking the lead of both Congress and the state Legislature, I think I’ll kick that can down the road a little longer. Luckily for me, a heartwarming local story just fell into my lap. Krista and Michael Kneip, siblings from Algonquin, were generous enough to share with our readers the details of the surprising “12 Days of Giving” they’ve just experienced. First, some background ... Last May, the Kneips’ mother, Karen, lost her three-year battle with lung cancer. A dental hygienist with offices in Crystal Lake and Elgin, Karen Kneip was an outgoing, caring person – “an extrovert to a fault,” as daughter Krista described her. She was well-thought-of in the community and had many friends. When Karen died, Krista, 23, a master’s student at Aurora University, and Michael, 22, a senior at Eastern Illinois University, were devastated. “Although we always knew her time with us was limited, we never expected her to be taken from us so soon,” said Krista, a Jacobs High School graduate along with her brother. Through Jacobs, the Kneip family had a large circle of friends. The brother and sister were involved in sports and community service projects, and their mom participated with them. After Karen passed, Krista and Michael were overwhelmed with support from that network. Phone calls.

The ASSOCIATED PRESS RALEIGH, N.C. – In choosing to serve her country in uniform, Hayleigh Lynn Perez knowingly accepted a nomadic life. Now the former Army sergeant says she and thousands of other veterans trying to get a higher education are being penalized for that enforced rootlessness. Under the Post-9/11 GI Bill, the federal government will pick up the full in-state cost for any honorably discharged service member wishing to attend a public college or university. But because the often intricate rules governing residency differ from state to state, and even within university systems, many veterans face a bewildering battle to exercise their benefits. “It is part of our contractual agreement when we join the military,” said Perez, who filed a $10 million federal civil rights lawsuit against the University of North Carolina Board of Governors after one of its schools denied her resident status. “It’s been paid for – with blood and sweat and

No Yes

Visits. Casserole dinners. But as time passed, life went on. So it was with Krista and Michael Kneip, and their community of friends. As December approached, though, the Kneip children realized they were about to spend their first Christmas without their mom. The holidays often are harder on families shortly after losing a loved one. It’s part of life, but that doesn’t make it any easier. When not in school, they’ve continued to live in their mother’s Algonquin home, although it now is going through the foreclosure process. They both go to college, are without full-time jobs, and can’t pay the mortgage. Times were tough. Beginning Dec. 17, however, something special started to happen. On that Monday night, a secret Santa visited Krista and Michael. The doorbell rang, and they found a China-doll Santa on their doorstep. Inside were hundreds of dollars in gift cards. But there was no sign of the gift giver. “I searched and searched for a name tag, but there was no shred of evidence as to whom this generous gift came from,” Krista wrote to the newspaper. “The next night, I received an anonymous text from Secret Santa himself letting me know he paid my house another visit. And then he came again, and again. For 12 days, his gifts magically appeared.” In all, more than $3,000 in gift cards, cash and other presents were left. “We were stunned,” Krista told me. With the last visit last week, the Kneips were feeling overwhelmed. That’s when the organizer of what has been dubbed “The 12 Days of Giving” decided it was time to share the secret. “They were really feeling like they had to thank someone, so that’s when I decided to let them know,” Debbie Krukowski of Algonquin said. The idea started out as a simple – and much smaller – one. “During the summer, I started think-

ing about them,” said Krukowski, mother of one of Krista’s close friends. “Two college kids who just lost their mother, pretty much on their own, living in a house that’s about to be foreclosed on.” Krukowski mentioned to a few friends that she wanted to do something special for the Kneips for Christmas. “All of a sudden, it turned into this huge community event with four main groups of people spreading the word among their group of friends,” Krukowski said. “It seemed like everyone wanted to contribute something, many of them anonymously. All of a sudden, I was collecting quite a bit.” Why the outpouring of support and generosity? Karen’s “children are a great example of her. They are polite, outgoing. They’re such good kids,” Krukowski said. “So I thought, ‘How can we help?’ We just wanted to give something back. ... I grew up in the city, and this would never have happened in the city. This shows how much they mean to us.” Krukowski said she’s confident the Jacobs community will step up again if Krista and Michael lose their home. The Kneips, of course, are beyond thankful. “They have brought back the magic of Christmas to our family,” Krista wrote. “They have reminded us that even when life turns out to be the exact opposite of what you imagined, there are still people who will be by your side in times of need. Their kind and thoughtful gifts have literally changed our lives. ... This year, our mom spent her first Christmas with Jesus, and I am confident that they are both looking down with pride on everyone who has made this Christmas unforgettable, not because it was the first Christmas our mom was not with us, but because Christmas is the season for giving, and they have outdone themselves.” Best wishes to Krista and Michael Kneip, and my thanks to them for sharing another great story about the wonderful people who live in our community.

The Illinois Veteran Grant program pays for up to 120 credit hours of tuition, but veterans must have lived in Illinois at the time of enlistment and have returned to the state no more than six months after discharge.

Hayleigh Lynn Perez, shown with her daughter, Calleigh, lived in North Carolina, Texas and Iraq while in the Army. When the former sergeant applied to colleges in North Carolina, one said she qualified for in-state tuition and one said she didn’t – an example of how intricate rules governing residency can hurt GI Bill users. tears and deployments.” Until last year, the Department of Veterans Affairs would cover up to the highest rate charged for in-state students at a public school in that state. But under changes that took effect in August 2011, while veterans can receive up to $17,500 a year for study at private schools, the agency will pay only “the actual net cost for in-State tuition and

fees assessed” by the public institution the veteran attends. And if that person is deemed a nonresident, the veteran often must pay the difference out of pocket. Army Staff Sgt. Stephen Lee was in Afghanistan – his second deployment to the war zone – when he began looking at colleges. The California native settled on the University of Wis-

consin-Madison and already had begun his studies when he learned of the coming changes to his GI Bill benefits. He was looking at an extra $20,000 a year out of pocket. Around that time, the university opted into the Yellow Ribbon Program, a provision of the GI Bill under which the school and the VA agree to split the difference between the resident and nonresident rate. There was only a limited amount set aside for the program, but Lee lucked out. “This uncertainty almost took me out of school,” he said. “California’s not home for me anymore. At the same time, I didn’t have any choice of living in Kentucky or Tennessee. That’s where the Army told me I was going.” @nwherald

Captured robber appears in court The ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHICAGO – Shackled in chains and pushed in a wheelchair by U.S. marshals, a bank robber who was captured more than two weeks after fleeing a high-rise Chicago jail was brought back to federal court Saturday to face escape charges. Kenneth Conley, who had disguised himself as an old man with a cane and a beret, scuffled with a resident and officers who gave chase on foot and arrested him Friday outside an apartment complex in suburban Palos Hills. Back in court a day later, a largely silent Conley wore a medical brace on a badly swollen left foot, which was apparently injured during his capture. Conley escaped from a high-rise lockup Dec. 18 along with cellmate and fellow bank robber Joseph “Jose” Banks apparently by smashing a hole in a narrow cell window and climbing down 20 stories using a rope fashioned from bed sheets. Banks was caught two days later at a home on the city’s North Side. When Conley did speak during Saturday’s hearing it was just to acknowledge he understood he could face an

additional five years behind bars if convicted in the escape. “Yes, your honor,” the 38year-old former strip club worker said, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. With permission from the judge, Conley’s attorney, Gary Ravitz, photographed his client’s injured foot to ensure Conley gets proper treatment. He was already given Kenneth X-rays and seen Conley by doctors Friday night at Palos Community Hospital. Police officers were responding to a call about a suspicious man spotted sleeping in the basement of a condo under renovation when they confronted Conley, who was dressed like an old man, wearing a beret and glasses, and walking with a limp, said Palos Hills Deputy Chief James Boie. He said Conley pushed one of the officers and led them on a foot chase. Conley then tried to break into an apartment to avoid being captured, but was caught and had a BB gun in his possession.

Plan’s critics: No jobs for extra health grads • EXPANSION

be held in a church basement,” MCC Trustee Ron Parrish said. Critics of MCC’s plan maintain that there are not enough health care jobs available in the county to justify expanding the health and wellness curriculum. “This program is a cruel hoax on the students who enroll expecting to be able to find jobs in health care in McHenry County,” Lakewood resident Stephen Willson told MCC trustees at a meeting in October. According to the most recent McHenry County Jobs Report, health care and social assistance jobs will grow by 10 percent, or add more than 1,000 jobs between 2012 and 2015. The college is expecting 1,400 more students each year to move through the programs. Recent letters to the Northwest Herald editor called the fitness center plans an unnecessary duplication of services already offered in the county, and others have said the college’s annual levy increases already are “squeezing the taxpayers” in a difficult economic climate. According to figures provided by the college, classrooms are used at an average of just more than 45 percent throughout a 15-hour, sevenday period. Peak times are from 2 to 4 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. on weekdays, when that percentage can be as high as 87 percent full. MCC has about 97 gross square feet per student, less than some other community

colleges in the region and less than other comparable colleges. Gross square feet refers to the total amount of space inside a building, including hallways and common areas. It’s not a measurement of usable space. Harper College in Palatine has 134 gross square feet per student, College of DuPage has 115, Moraine Valley Community College has 85, Elgin Community College has 131 and College of Lake County has 169, according to MCC’s facilities master plan. The master plan is a driver for this and future expansion projects. Wight and Co., the college’s Darien-based architecture firm, has recommended MCC plan for between 120 and 125 gross square feet per student as it grows. “As the college sits right now, we are 100,000 square feet below where we need to be,” Smith said. The college’s enrollment figures continue to grow despite local school districts that have posted declines in recent years. “The whole mission and purpose of this college is to provide higher education to McHenry County residents,” Smith said. “All residents, not just recent high school graduates.” According to the college, MCC’s student body increased 1.3 percent over last year. Credit hours jumped 7.2 percent this year. Additionally, college officials believe that with targeted programming, more residents will enroll. “When you deliver programs that people need, people will come,” board Chairwoman Mary Miller said.

Gay marriage a tough sell The ASSOCIATED PRESS

SPRINGFIELD – The stalling of Illinois’ gaymarriage push – at least for now – shows the difficulty of approving legislation to legalize it, even with a nudge from the home-state president, steadily rising support in the polls and national momentum from the November elections. Democrats control both chambers of the General Assembly and the governor’s office in the solidly blue state. Yet the margin of support Senate Democrats were able to pull together for a bill last week was so thin that a death in one lawmaker’s family and another senator’s

extended trip to Israel were enough to push the issue into the next legislative session. Supporters downplayed the delay, saying a Senate committee’s vote to advance the measure was history itself. But there’s no denying that even as the nation’s feelings about the issue appear to be shifting, lawmakers have been more reluctant to do so – particularly in the nation’s heartland. No legislature in the middle of the country has approved gay marriage. Of the nine states that allow it, Iowa is the only one not located on the nation’s coasts, and it adopted same-sex unions through the courts, not the Legislature.


As it became clear last week that Illinois didn’t have a deal and would have to push back a vote until possibly February, Senate President John Cullerton, a Chicago Democrat, mentioned same-sex marriage along with gun control as measures that are “always going to be very, very tough” to pass. Thatmakesapotentialvictory in Illinois even sweeter, advocates say. While President Barack Obama’s home state is known for its liberal policies, its Democratic leadership hails mostly from Chicago while the rest of the state – including fellow Democrats – are far more conservative.

CHICAGO – Three young children in the backseat of a car witnessed a Chicago police officer shoot the driver while he was trying to flee after a traffic stop. A police union spokesman said officers were surprised to realize the children were in the car after the wounded driver crashed it. Police said they stopped the driver about 1 a.m. Saturday on the far South Side and ordered him out of the car. The driver then jumped back inside and tried to flee. Police said an officer dove in an open door and shot him during a struggle after the driver reached for a gun in his waistband. An aunt took custody of the children.

East St. Louis woman – state’s oldest – dies

EAST ST. LOUIS – An East St. Louis woman who had been recognized as the oldest person in Illinois has died at age 111. A funeral home in the city said Mayetta Epps-Miller died Monday. The Belleville NewsDemocrat reported that she was recognized as the oldest Illinois resident in January of last year. At that time, she also was listed as the 14th oldest living American. The supercentenarian – a term referring to anyone over age 110 – was born April 15, 1901.

U.S. still at work Train barriers hold new appeal on Afghan dam By JENNIFEr PElTZ The Associated Press

Project questioned as challenges arise By HEIdI VOGT

The Associated Press

KAJAKI, Afghanistan – In the approaching twilight of its war in Afghanistan, the U.S. is forging ahead with a giant infrastructure project long criticized as too costly in both blood and money. It’s a $500 million effort to refurbish the massive Kajaki dam and hydro-electric power system with an extensive network of power lines and transmission substations. It is supposed to bring electricity to 332,000 people in southern Afghanistan, increase crop yields and build up a cohort of trained Afghan laborers in a region badly in need of them. But completion, which originally was envisaged for 2005, now is projected for some time in 2015, the year after most combat troops will have left the country. And there are some crucial ifs: If a convoy carrying 900 tons of concrete can make it up a dangerous road to the dam site without being attacked by the Taliban. If the Afghan army can hold out in an area that took thousands of U.S. Marines to secure. If the Afghan government can take on the management of the dam. “It’s a long-term bet. I’ve said to people: We have to be patient and we have to persevere,” said Ken Yamashita, the head of USAID in Afghanistan. The desire to succeed is understandable. The Kajaki

dam on the Helmand River symbolizes what the Afghans and their American backers had hoped the infusion of U.S. troops and cash would produce nationwide: an Afghan government that can provide for its people and in turn count on its support against the Taliban insurgency. The U.S. has spent $22.34 billion on governance and development in Afghanistan since it invaded the country following the Sept. 11 attacks, much of that on projects to build roads, schools, power plants and irrigation systems. In the past two years alone, $800 million was earmarked for infrastructure projects. Kajaki also is a symbol of the American presence in Afghanistan dating back to the 1950s and the Cold War. That was when the U.S. built the original dam, with a powerhouse added in the 1970s. But before the three turbines could be installed, the Soviets invaded and construction stopped. The dam still was squeezing out a bit of power in 2001 when the U.S. attacked and bombed the dam’s power transmission line. In the latest phase of the Kajaki saga, fighting as well as limited oversight of spending has led to huge delays and cost overruns. Now Helmand province, home of the dam, is seeing the first and largest wave of U.S. troop reductions, with 10,000 of 17,000 U.S. Marines already gone. That means most of the Kajaki project is going forward with Afghan forces providing almost all the security in an area that was a Taliban stronghold until a year ago.

NEW YORK – Every day, throngs of riders stand on the edge of danger in the nation’s busiest subway system, waiting on platforms with nothing between them and the tracks. Dozens of subway and light rail systems around the world have safety barriers with sliding doors on their platforms, but the idea hasn’t gotten traction in New York. Yet transit officials are giving it a new look after two people were pushed and a third fell to their deaths on the tracks since early December. Safety doors would be expensive and difficult additions to the sprawling, 108year-old subway system, but some people are urging the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to try it. A company has proposed to install the barriers for free in exchange for advertising revenue. Being shoved or bumped

Four dead in police standoff in Colorado By P. SOlOMON BANdA The Associated Press

AURORA, Colo. – A gunman barricaded inside his Colorado home fired shots at police from a second-story window before he was killed as SWAT officers stormed the home Saturday. Once inside, they found the bodies of three other adults, authorities said. The suspect, whose name was withheld by police, held officers at bay for nearly six hours after neighbors reported gunfire at 3 a.m. inside the modest townhome in the Denver suburb of Aurora, police Sgt. Cassidee Carlson said. It wasn’t known if officers shot the suspect or if he shot himself. Investigators said two men and a woman appeared to have been killed before officers arrived. The suspect shot at police who approached the front of the home with an armored vehicle and who fired tear gas around 8:15 a.m. He was killed when he fired at officers from the second-story window about 45 minutes later, Carlson said. “After we arrived on scene, there were no more shots fired up until he fired at us,” Carlson said. “During this time

he was all over the house. He moved furniture. He was throwing things. He was agitated. He was irrational.” A large front window was missing in the two-story townhome, the window’s mini-blinds in disarray. Bullet holes marked two upstairs windows, and neighbors milled about outside. A fifth person escaped unharmed and called police to report that she saw three people inside the home who “appeared lifeless,” said Carlson, who declined to elaborate about the woman’s escape. A motive for the killings was unknown, and police had yet to say what weapon or weapons were used. Investigators wearing gloves and carrying evidence bags were going over the crime scene. Police declined to release the victims’ names. “We have an idea of who they are, but we obviously want to confirm their identities with the coroner,” said Carlson, who declined to release the relationship between the victims and the shooter. Officers evacuated neighbors’ homes during the standoff and used a bullhorn to communicate with the gunman, urging him to surrender.

killed by a train amid a fight at a Brooklyn station. “I know that people like the roughness” of New York subways, said David, “but it’s a horrible way to die, and it can be prevented.” About 140 people are hit by

New York City subways per year, in situations such as accidental knocks and willful leaps. Fifty-five people died last year and 47 in 2011, according to the MTA. The numbers are small compared to the 1.6 billion subway rides taken each year, and officials say a substantial proportion is suicides. But two men were killed last month – each propelled into the path of an onrushing train by a mumbling stranger – in separate incidents. Then a woman fell onto the tracks and died when a train hit her early on New Year’s Day. Subway systems from Shanghai to Dubai to Paris have installed safety doors over the last three decades. Sometimes called platform screen doors or edge doors, the devices are generally transparent walls or barriers that run the length of a train platform, with doors or gates that align with the train’s doors.

8woRld bRIefs In Italy, 6 Russians killed in snowmobile crash

ROME – Six Russians were killed and two seriously injured when the snowmobile and sled they were riding veered off an Italian Alpine ski slope at night, slammed into a barrier and flew through the air into a ravine. The accident occurred Friday,

and when rescuers arrived at the scene six of the victims were found dead on the slope of Mount Cermis, in northeast Italy, said Cavalese Fire Department Cmdr. Roberto Marchi. “It is clear that the fundamental cause is recklessness and imprudence,” Marchi told Sky TG24 TV in an interview on the slope Saturday. It is

labeled “pista nera” or the black ski run, indicating a level of steepness and other difficult conditions suitable only for the most experienced skiers.

Plane carrying Missoni exec lost in Venezuela

CARACAS, Venezuela – Rescue crews used boats and aircraft Saturday to search for

a small plane that disappeared off Venezuela carrying the CEO of Italy’s iconic Missoni fashion house and five other people. But more than a day after the BN-2 Islander aircraft disappeared from radar screens on its short flight from the Venezuelan resort islands of Los Roques to Caracas, no sign of the plane had been found,

officials said. “We have no other news” about the plane carrying 58year-old Vittorio Missoni, the head of the company; his wife, Maurizia Castiglioni; two of their Italian friends; and two Venezuelan crew members, said Paolo Marchetti, a Missoni SpA official.

A few near site of school shooting in Conn. called off The ASSOCIATEd PrESS

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Several gun shows, all about an hour’s drive from Newtown, Conn., have been canceled. A show in White Plains, N.Y. – brought back a few years ago after being called off for a decade because of the Columbine shooting – is off because officials decided it didn’t seem appropriate now, either. In Danbury, Conn. – about 10 miles west of Newtown – the venue backed out. Same with three other shows in New York’s Hudson Valley, according to the organizer. Gun advocates aren’t backing down from their insistence on the right to keep and bear arms. But heightened sensitivities and raw nerves since the Newtown shooting have led to toned-down displays at gun shows and prompted some officials and sponsors to cancel the well-attended exhibitions altogether. Some of the most popular guns will be missing from next weekend’s gun show in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., after show organizers agreed to bar the display and sale of AR-15 military-style semiautomatic weapons and their large-clip magazines. “The majority of people wanted these guns out of the city,” said Chris Mathiesen, Saratoga Springs’ public safety commissioner. “They don’t want them sold in our city, and I agree. Newtown, Conn., is not that far away.” The mayor of Barre, Vt., wants a ban on military-style assault weapons being sold at an annual gun show in February. Mayor Thom Lauzon said he supports responsible gun ownership but is making the request “as a father.” The police chief in Waterbury, Conn., just a few miles from Newtown, has halted permits for gun shows, saying he was concerned about firearms changing hands that might one day be used in a mass shooting. In White Plains, in New York’s suburban Westchester County, Executive Rob Astorino had brought back the show in 2010 after a ban of more than a decade following the 1999 Columbine High School shooting in Colorado, but he said the show would be inappropriate now. The shows in the Hudson Valley and Danbury were listed as canceled on the website for Big Al’s Gun Shows. A man who answered the site’s contact number said it was the venues that canceled the shows, not the promoter. In Houston, transportation officials temporarily stopped using electronic freeway signs to give directions to gun shows amid complaints following such a show the day after the Dec. 14 school shooting. State-level transportation officials overruled the decision. The signs are routinely used to direct traffic or tell visitors where to exit freeways for rodeos, sporting events and gun shows. On Wednesday, the City Council in Saratoga Springs urged organizers of a downtown gun show Jan. 12-13 not to display military-style weapons and the high-capacity magazines “of the type used in the Newtown tragedy.” About a dozen people gave impassioned pleas at the meeting. Show organizer David Petronis of New Eastcoast Arms Collectors Associates agreed to the limit. “I don’t think it’s fair that we’re taking the brunt of the problem,” Petronis said, “but I can understand the reaction of people in doing so.”

U.S. irked by Google chief’s N. Korea plans By MATTHEW PENNINGTON The Associated Press

WASHINGTON – Google chief Eric Schmidt’s plan to visit North Korea has put the Obama administration in the awkward position of opposing a champion of Internet freedom who’s decided to engage with one of the most intensely censored countries. The administration is wary for a reason. It fears that Schmidt’s trip could give a boost to North Korea’s young leader, Kim Jong Un, just when Washington is trying to pressure him. It was only last month when North Korea launched a long-range rocket in violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions. While the U.S. and its allies are seeking harsher penalties against the reclusive communist government. That effort is proving difficult because of a resistance from China, a permanent member of the council. Beijing probably worries that its troublesome ally could respond to any new punishment by conducting a nuclear test. U.S. officials also are concerned that the high-profile visit could confuse American allies in Asia and suggest a shift in U.S. policy as the administration prepares to install a new secretary of state to succeed Hillary Rodham Clinton. Obama has nominated Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry, the Democratic presidential candidate in 2004. An imminent change of government in South Korea, a close U.S. friend, is raising questions about whether the two countries can remain in lockstep in their dealings with the North. Newly elected

leader Park Geun-hye is expected to seek a more conciliatory approach toward North Korea after she takes up the presidency in February. This helps to explain why the State Department, which has been a vigorous advocate of social media freedoms around the world, particularly last year during the Arab Spring, made clear it was displeased by the planned “private, humanitarian” visit by Schmidt and former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson. Their trip is expected this month. “We don’t think the timing of the visit is helpful and they are well aware of our views,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Thursday. Richardson, a seasoned envoy and a former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said Friday that the State Department should not be nervous. In interviews with CBS and CNN, Richardson said they had been planning to visit in December but postponed the trip at the department’s request because of the presidential election that month in South Korea. Richardson said he would raise with North Korea the matter of an American detained last month on suspicion of committing unspecified “hostile” acts against the state; the charge could draw a sentence of 10 years of hard labor. He’ll also try to meet with the detainee. He also said he was concerned about North Korea’s nuclear proliferation and this was a “very important juncture” to talk and try to move the North Koreans in the “right direction.”

Starbucks enters Vietnam coffee market By MIKE IVES

The Associated Press HANOI, Vietnam – Nghiem Ngoc Thuy has been slinging coffees to thirsty Vietnamese for 20 years in her colonial-style villa with peeling shutters, and she and her customers aren’t too worried that the imminent arrival of U.S. giant Starbucks will alter their time-tested coffee traditions. Starbucks announced Thursday that it will open its first cafe in Vietnam early next month in Ho Chi Minh City as part of its strategy to expand across Asia, and plans to add more shops throughout the country. But compared with other Asian markets Starbucks has recently entered, the Seattle-based company faces a unique scenario in Vietnam, where French-inspired coffee culture reigns supreme, two homegrown chains have established presences and family-run sidewalk cafes are as ubiquitous as noodle shops. “Our prices are affordable for average Vietnamese,” Thuy said, pausing for just a moment during an afternoon rush at her family-run cafe in Hanoi, the capital. “Expensive coffee is just for the children of government officials, or people who have lots of money.” Vietnamese coffee, made from ballsy robusta beans,

A customer drinks coffee Saturday at Cafe Tho in downtown Hanoi, Vietnam. packs a stronger caffeine wallop than European-style espresso, which is made from effete arabica. It has a slightly bitter taste that usually is offset by sweetened, condensed milk known to

rattle tourists’ eyeballs. Dang Le Nguyen Vu, whose Trung Nguyen Group owns 55 cafes in Vietnam, said he welcomes Starbucks and doesn’t view the American newcomer as a threat.

“I could imagine Starbucks opening up to a hundred cafes at most in Vietnam in the next 10 years,” Vu said. “But will people in a country with such a low GDP per capita, and a different taste in coffee, really accept Starbucks?” Unlike China, where tea is the caffeinated drink of choice, Vietnam inherited a coffee culture from French colonizers in the 19th century. Vietnam also is the world’s second-largest exporter of coffee behind Brazil. According to the government, it produced 1.73 million tons of coffee last year, for an export value of $3.7 billion. Starbucks already operates more than 3,300 stores across 11 countries in the Asia-Pacific region, and its entry into Vietnam marks the latest salvo in a campaign to woo Asia’s emerging middle classes despite a stagnating U.S. economy. Jinlong Wang, president of Starbucks Asia-Pacific, said the company plans to expand across Vietnam in a way that celebrates the country’s “coffee culture and heritage.” “We look forward to growing with Vietnam’s already vibrant coffee industry, and making a positive impact in the communities where we operate,” he said in comments emailed to The Associated Press.


Icelandic airline restrains man on flight to NYC NEW YORK – Icelandair said it had to restrain a passenger on a flight from Reykjavik to New York City because he was hitting people, screaming profanities and spitting. Thursday’s flight was getting media attention after a photograph began circulating on the Internet purporting to show the passenger tied to his seat with tape and plastic restraints. Icelandair spokesman Gudjon Arngrimsson said the man was bound after his behavior became “unruly and threatening.” Ron Marsico, a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which owns the airport, told reporters that police took the 46-year-old man to a hospital after determining that he was drunk. No charges were filed, he said. The passenger’s name wasn’t released.

Chavez allies re-elect legislative chief

CARACAS, Venezuela – Allies of cancer-stricken President Hugo Chavez on Saturday chose to keep the same National Assembly president – a man who could be in line to step in as a caretaker leader in some circumstances. The vote to retain Diosdado Cabello as legislative leader signaled the ruling party’s desire to stress unity and continuity amid growing signs the government plans to postpone Chavez’s inauguration for a new term while he fights a severe respiratory infection nearly a month after cancer surgery in Cuba. The opposition has argued

that if Chavez is unable to be sworn in as scheduled Thursday, the president of the National Assembly should take over on an interim basis.

Syrian president to give speech today

BEIRUT – Syrian President Bashar Assad will deliver a speech today in a rare address to the nation, state media said, as rebels fighting to topple his embattled regime pressed ahead with an offensive on the capital. The official SANA news agency said in a brief statement Saturday that Assad will speak about the latest developments in Syria. The speech would be the first by the leader since June, and comes amid intense fighting between government troops and rebels on the outskirts of Damascus. Assad has rarely spoken in public since the uprising against him began in March 2011. In each of his previous speeches and interviews, the president has dug in his heels even as Western powers have moved to boost the opposition in Syria’s civil war.

Several local churches, lawmakers still oppose gay marriage • MARRIAGE

Continued from page A1

If approved, Illinois would be the 10th state to allow gay marriage. But several local lawmakers still are opposed. Sen. Dan Duffy, R-Lake Barrington, said he would try to fight the bill every step of the way, saying it infringes upon religious liberties. “Marriage is a church sacrament,” he said. “This bill tries to redefine church doctrine.” After word spread that the issue might go to a vote, leaders from more than 1,700 faith communities signed a letter encouraging lawmakers to vote against gay marriage. Several local churches were among those that signed the letter, including Evangelical Free Church

of Crystal Lake, First Baptist of Marengo and Outreach Fellowship Christian Center in East Dundee. Marriage is the lifelong, faithful union of one man and one woman, and the natural basis of the family, the religious leaders said. The idea that religious freedom is confined to churches, synagogues, temples or mosques is “wrong and dangerous,” according to the letter. “Thus, the real peril: if marriage is redefined in civil law, individuals and religious organizations – regardless of deeply held beliefs – will be compelled to treat same-sex unions as the equivalent of marriage in their lives, ministries and operations,” the letter reads. “Compulsion of this nature is a violation of personal conscience and of religious

liberty.” In the House, state Rep. Mike Tryon, R-Crystal Lake, said that civil unions, which are legal in Illinois, already have accomplished what gay marriage would. “I certainly respect when two people find happiness together and want to share their lives together,” he said. “I’m certainly going to listen to the debate and listen to what’s contained in the piece of legislation, but right now, I still believe that marriage is between one man and one woman.” State Rep. Jack Franks, a Democrat from Marengo, said he wasn’t prepared to give his opinion on the topic because there are more pressing issues: pensions, which go hand-in-hand with school funding, and the budget. “I think we should be concentrating on those things

Legislators avoid local cost shift issue • PENSIONS

Continued from page A1

“We’re going to just keep working until we get it done,” Anderson said. Decades of inattention to saving up for state workers’ retirement plans, including years where legislatures and governors skipped payments, means the state’s five pension accounts are short $96 billion. The piling debt has hurt the state’s credit rating, limiting its ability to borrow. It also has threatened to eat up more and more money for education and other public services. Madigan’s compromise, announced a day earlier and praised by Quinn as a breakthrough, would eliminate – for now – one of the reasons reform efforts collapsed in last spring’s legislative session. Chicago schools already shoulder pension costs for their teachers, but Republi-

cans worried that forcing the rest of Illinois to follow suit would result in higher property taxes. Various plans floated in the last year have included bumped-up contributions and less-generous rewards for current employees, raising the retirement age and reducing cost-of-living adjustments for retirees. Democratic Senate President John Cullerton has said he wants lawmakers to pass a more modest alternative that the Senate adopted last spring. That proposal affects only a portion of the workers and retirees but would be a starting point, and Cullerton is concerned that more ambitious efforts could be unconstitutional. Joining Quinn at Saturday’s meeting were Madigan, Cullerton, House Republican leader Tom Cross and Senate Republican leader Christine Radogno.

Dr. Salzmann, Dr. Kaul, and Dr. Shah have joined together to form Medical Associates of Crystal Lake

Afterward, spokesman Ron Holmes noted Cullerton also has agreed to delay the issue of shifting costs for teacher pensions. “He urges the House to take bipartisan action on a pension reform proposal in the coming days,” Holmes said. Radogno said she wasn’t married to any particular framework, but that “we still obviously have a long way to go.” Cross left the meeting without speaking to reporters. Quinn, a Democrat, has called the pension issue Illinois’ “own fiscal cliff.” He is hoping lawmakers pass and send him a reform bill on Tuesday, before the lameduck session ends. The House convenes today with plans to work until Wednesday morning. The Senate adjourned abruptly Thursday night but Cullerton cautioned senators to be ready to return Tuesday if needed.

before we concentrate on social issues,” Franks said. ••• Harris, a social worker, and Glaubke, who works for domestic violence agency Turning Point, came to McHenry County about 12 years ago from Evanston. With the county’s conservative reputation, they admit they had reservations about the move. But they’ve found support. “When Deb and I bought a house out here, we were worried about how we would be seen in the community,” Harris said. “We have not had any problems whatsoever.” To some extent, it does affect Glaubke when her legislators come out against gay marriage. “It does affect how I think about them in the polling place,” she said. “I couldn’t deny that it doesn’t have an


impact for me, but I tend to look at the politician in the bigger picture.” In 1989, Harris and Glaubke had a do-it-yourself kind of commitment ceremony. Once civil unions became legal in Illinois, they did that, too, although they had some discussion about whether they should because it was second best. A marriage would represent a validation, Harris said. “I really do believe that marriage is a civil right and has nothing to do with religion or anything else,” she said. “Gay families are fundamentally not any different than any other kinds of families, although we’ve had to jump through some extra hoops.” Harris said she doesn’t take it personally when someone opposes gay marriage.

“I’m sure there are a lot of things that I get wrong,” she said. “It doesn’t make me angry or anything.” She figures they just need “a little more education.” “If they’re coming from a Bible-based bias, if you want to call it that, they’re going to be looking at that rather than the human being in front of them,” Harris said. She’s the daughter of a southern Baptist minister, but her father never stood in the way of her relationship, she said. The pendulum, Harris said, is swinging toward allowing gay marriage. Glaubke just never really imagined it would be in her lifetime. “I thought maybe the next generation,” she said.

Thanks to congressman for service The start of a new session of Congress last week meant saying goodbye to a longtime advocate for McHenry County. Don Manzullo represented Illinois’ 16th Congressional District, which used to include much of McHenry County, for two For the record decades. Even if we questioned Don Manzullo is moving some of the decion after 20 years in the U.S. sions he made Congress. We thank him for during those 20 his many years of service years, we can’t to McHenry County and its deny that Manresidents. zullo was an unabashed proponent for McHenry County, even though he lived in Egan. He first took office in 1993, and his tenure was marked by his support in particular for small businesses and manufacturing. He often served Don on House committees that Manzullo focused on those areas, and he founded the House’s manufacturing caucus. He promoted the county’s small businesses at every turn, and secured millions to benefit manufacturing and economic growth in the county. We also have Manzullo (among others) to thank for some of the biggest road projects that have benefited McHenry County residents. Work began this year on the Algonquin Western Bypass: The two-year, $33.3 million project aims to build a four-lane route west of Route 31 to relieve congestion at Routes 31 and 62 in downtown Algonquin. Manzullo started fighting for the bypass as soon as he took office, and helped secure $19 million in federal funding to go toward that project. He helped secure $5.7 million for Route 47 improvements from Reed Road to Kreutzer Road in Huntley. The widening of Rakow Road recently wrapped up: Manzullo secured more than $7 million for that. Among the hundreds of other projects he secured funding for include for water-monitoring wells, security cameras at McHenry County College, and crime-fighting equipment for local police departments. His dedication went beyond dollar signs. He hosted health care forums in 2009 to get an idea of what constituents thought about health care reform. He attended local events. He knew the issues facing his district. In short, he did what we expect our elected representatives to do: champion their districts, and its residents, as often as possible. Even if he remained in Congress, Manzullo would have no longer represented McHenry County: Redistricting due to the 2010 Census shifted the 16th Congressional District completely out of the county. We thank Manzullo for his dedicated service to McHenry County for 20 years. We wish him the best as he starts his new job as president and CEO of the Korea Economic Institute of America. And we hope that the new representatives for McHenry County serve the county as well as Manzullo did. Sixth District Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Wheaton, and 14th District Rep. Randy Hultgren, R-Winfield, are now our congressmen. We hope they follow Manzullo’s lead in keeping the best interests of McHenry County in the forefront as they make decisions.

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Great morning

To the Editor: It is my pleasure to share some good news. On Dec. 29, Jon Betts ran another very successful Chris Applegate Memorial Soccer Tournament. Each year, Jon donates all of the proceeds to a different local charitable cause. Jon puts in countless volunteer hours to make sure the event is a success each year. Jon also is a standout teacher for District 300, as well as an outstanding tennis coach for Jacobs High School (girls) and Hampshire High School (boys). Jon does everything with passion, enthusiasm and a smile; and he makes those around him better people! Jon’s a great man and an asset to our community! Have a wonderful New Year! God bless!

Anti-gun response

To the Editor: This is to Rudolph Magnani, who wrote in the Dec. 29 “It’s Your Write” column, “Unholy gun connection.” First, let’s start with Chicago, which has the strictest gun control laws in the country. That didn’t stop the 500 murders in 2012. Now that’s interesting. Second point is that there are,

right now, 20,000 gun laws on the books, and now you think there should be more? What, 20,000 is not enough? Yeah right! Third, the FBI estimates there are more than 200 million privately owned firearms in the U.S. That’s a lot, but every anti-gunner still wants to focus on the extreme tragedies committed by a bunch of loonies. Mr. Magnani should go and buy the NRA book about armed citizens and read for himself just how many times a regular citizen’s life has been saved because they had a gun for protection, all while waiting for police. And to end this, according to the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration, out of 12,998 people killed by drunken drivers in 2007, 311 of them were children under the age of 16. Why doesn’t Mr. Magnani protest drunken driving/drivers, some of whom are on their third, fourth or even fifth DUI. Drunks are killing more children than the guns people are worried about. Complain about drunks and not the law-abiding, gun-owning citizens. Leave us alone. James E. Mertz Algonquin

Problem with Democrats

To the Editor: When Democrats talk about “working families,” they mean union workers. When they talk about “revenue,” they are referring to taxes. They have little use for any human endeavor that might make someone “rich.” They don’t care that when regulations go up, prices go up, and employment goes down. They don’t get that when the “minimum wage” is increased, it creates a shortage of entry-level jobs. They couldn’t care less about our national language being English or that our borders are unsecured. They never have learned to use the military properly, and constantly try to reduce defense budgets. They view the Constitution as an archaic document that

only applied to this country long ago. Private property is now a passé notion – ask any environmentalist. They believe that there are too many rich people. Anyone who invests in stocks and bonds and pays a dividend tax has gamed the system. They don’t care that people now come to this country for benefits instead of freedoms. They truly think that the war on poverty should go on forever. They have never paid attention to a cost-benefit analysis. They are the redistributionists of wealth, and they fancy themselves smarter than anyone else. They also fancy themselves fairer, more tolerant, and more humane. They demand fairness, a level playing field, and equal results (not equal opportunity). But above all, they want George Bush to admit his mistakes and take the blame for every economic downturn we may experience in the future. Rick Justen Wonder Lake

Sometimes, lawmakers behave and prosecutors do not

WASHINGTON – Writing about the fiscal cliff is futile, especially now that we’re over it. Who wants to spend time with a group of people who voluntarily set up a drop-dead event to force them to act and then decide that, actually, they’d rather drop dead – and take the country with them? Instead, I have opted for a satisfying detour into things that matter. (All-purpose disclaimer: I’m not saying that my usual subject, politics, doesn’t matter. Just that this week it matters less than usual.) A year ago, I wrote about Ammaria Johnson, a first-grader in Chesterfield, Va., who ate a peanut at recess, broke out in hives immediately, went into anaphylactic shock within minutes, and died after being rushed to the hospital. What could have saved her was right at hand: a relatively inexpensive device called an EpiPen. Because it was prescribed to another child, however, the school nurse couldn’t use it. The Virginia Legislature sprang

Editorial Board: John Rung, Dan McCaleb, Kevin Lyons, Stacia Hahn, Jon Styf, Kate Schott

into action. In April, it passed legislation that corrected the rules that prevented school officials from treating Ammaria on the spot. Local school boards now must keep EpiPens on hand that can be used on any student. Other states have passed similar laws, and U.S. Sens. Dick Durbin and Mark Kirk, a Democrat and Republican from Illinois, have introduced a bill in Congress to get all states to follow suit. As rare as it is to find a responsive legislature, it’s sadly easy to find prosecutorial misconduct, despite prosecutors’ sworn duty “to seek justice, not merely to convict.” In 2008, Sen. Ted Stevens, an Alaska Republican, was put on trial for not reporting gifts, mostly renovations to his modest house. He was so convinced of his innocence – he’d paid $160,000 to contractors for their work, far more than experts would testify it was worth – that he asked for a quick trial to remove the cloud over his head before the election in November.

Views Margaret Carlson Instead, justice took a back seat to ambition. If you indict a sitting senator, you had better convict a sitting senator. Stevens was found guilty just days before voters went to the polls, largely because the prosecutors let their crucial witness lie on the stand and hid evidence. Stevens lost re- election by about 1 percent of the vote. The verdict eventually was overturned, and a court-appointed special counsel issued a damning report indicting prosecutors for premeditated “concealment of significant exculpatory evidence, which would have independently corroborated Sen. Stevens’ defense and his testimony, and seriously damaged the testimony and credibility of the government’s key witness.” Stevens never got the satisfac-


tion of reading that report. He was killed in a plane crash in August 2010. There was another casualty: Prosecutor Nicholas Marsh hanged himself at home shortly after the report was released. If a senator can’t stand up to ambitious prosecutors, think how hard it is for the rest of us. Or just go see the new documentary “West of Memphis,” about one of the worst cases of prosecutorial misconduct in U.S. history. It was a case that no one wanted to touch – including former presidential candidate and Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. It took 18 years, three prior documentaries, and attention from celebrities to get three men out of prison for murders they did not commit. After three 8-year-old boys were killed in 1993 in West Memphis, Ark., passions were high, and the police and prosecutors wanted a conviction. The trial was riddled with perjured testimony, ignored alibis, shoddy forensic work, suppressed evidence, a forced confes-

sion, an inept judge, and incompetent defense lawyers. One man, Damien Echols, was sentenced to death as a result of the trial, while two others, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley, received life sentences. Appeals were unsuccessful. Even when DNA tests exonerated the men in 2007, the state stood by its conviction. (Many of the officials involved in the trial had won judgeships or, in one case, a seat in the Arkansas State Senate.) In 2011, having attracted talented and prominent defense lawyers, the men finally were released. Two of the most tired cliches in politics are that prosecutors are well-intentioned and legislators are lazy. The good news, and the bad news, is that neither is always true. Most of the time, maybe, but not always.

CRYSTAL LAKE – A 27-year-old woman was taken to the hospital in good condition Saturday after her vehicle flipped over in a car accident at the intersection of Route 14 and Teckler Boulevard, police said. About 1 p.m. Amy Sterne of Crystal Lake was in her Ford Escape in the middle of the intersection facing east waiting to turn left onto Teckler. When she turned left, Michael Gilmer, 59, of Woodstock, who was driving a blue Toyota Camry west on Route 14, struck Sterne’s vehicle, Sgt. Paul Olszak said. Sterne’s Escape flipped over, Olszak said. She was taken to Centegra Hospital – Woodstock for observation in good condition, Olszak said. Olszak said Sterne will be cited for failure to yield. Traffic at the intersection was tied up for 30 to 40 minutes.

Familiar names on ballot Four vie for three Huntley Trustee seats in April election By StepHeN di BeNedetto

HUNTLEY – The only contested race in Huntley for the upcoming April election features many familiar faces but only one incumbent, as four candidates vie for three trustee positions. Trustee John Piwko will try to convince voters that he has the most village board experience as he aims for a third consecutive term, while former Trustee Jay Kadakia,

fresh off a November loss for McHenry County Board, attempts a comeback. J.R. Westberg, an Air Force veteran, also returns to the ballot, after unsuccessfully running for trustee in the last local election in 2011. Newcomer Ronda Goldman hopes her civic experience with the Huntley Historical Society and other local groups will be enough to win over voters when they head to the polls April 9. “Anytime you have four

people looking for three spots, it is going to be a challenge,” Pikwo said. “I like what I do, and I want to continue. Being the only incumbent, I do have that experience.” Incumbent Pam Fender decided not to run for reelection, after announcing her campaign to be the next Grafton Township supervisor. Trustee Ron Hahn also declined to pick up a petition, after being appointed to the position in 2011. All of the four trustee

candidates are aware of the math that is going to leave one man, or woman, out of a Village Board spot, once all ballots are counted. Most candidates said they plan to start knocking on doors and meeting with voters and community groups in the months leading up to the April election. Kadakia is familiar with the board, after serving as trustee from 2007 to 2011, before losing to incumbents Harry Leopold, Niko Ka-

nakaris and then-newcomer Nick Hanson. Kadakia also knows about Hahn’s 2011 appointment, after Village President Chuck Sass initially recommended Kadakia to fill the term of Paul Mercer, who resigned after moving to Arizona. Led by resistance from Fender, the board split on Kadakia’s appointment, forcing Sass to recommend Hahn, a longtime Plan Commission

McHENRY – Two males were taken to Centegra Hospital – McHenry on Saturday with minor injuries after a car accident at River and Charles J. Miller roads. About 1:45 p.m., the McHenry Township Fire Protection District responded to the accident that left one driver with head and back pain and the other driver with hip pain, Battalion Chief Mike Majercik said. He said both males were in good condition. Neither the Jeep Wrangler nor the white Pontiac involved in the accident were drivable, Majercik said. The names of the people involved in the accident were not available Saturday from the McHenry County Sheriff’s Department. Traffic at the intersection was backed up for about 15 minutes as the fire department cleared the area, Majercik said.

Turning Point offers ‘a place to call, a place to go’

One of the bright moments as we enter the New Year is the serious attention given to help both adults and children who are victims of domestic violence. Jane Farmer, executive director of Turning Point, McHenry County’s only domestic violence agency, says that many victims are harassed and verbally abused and that domestic violence also includes abuse of the elderly. Turning Point was founded in 1981. Today, it has a staff of 34 – 28 of which are full time. Farmer said Turning Point had 1,820 clients since

ON thE squARE Don Peasley a year ago; this includes 220 children. Farmer, who joined the Turning Point staff in 1992, said, “Turning Point is doing something positive regarding abuse. It’s a place to call, a place to go, because we have rooms available to provide shelter when needed.” She said care frequently begins at a hospital emergency room. With the facility on Route 14 between Woodstock and

Crystal Lake, Turning Point has facilities for 21 women and children who can stay 35 to 60 days during which time any crisis is stabilized. Four Turning Point advocates staff the Turning Point office at the courthouse to obtain orders of protection for victims. Farmer said the crisis line is staffed 24 hours a day. Phone staffers receive 40 hours of training before manning the crisis line. During the past year, the crisis phone line had more than 5,380 phone calls from people needing assistance.

Volunteers needed to help at area preservation sites NORthWEst hERALD

WOODSTOCK – The Land Conservancy of McHenry County has three volunteer events planned for the week. Volunteers are needed to help cut and stack brush to help restore nature in these neighborhoods: • PrairieRidgeFenConservation Area: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday. This 9-acre wetland was protected in 1996 as part of the adjacent Prairie Ridge subdivision in Woodstock. Interesting species found here include a grove of Scarlet Oaks and a small cluster of Bog Birch. The site is on the northeast corner of Route 14 and Dean Street in Woodstock. Volunteers should park along Wagner Lane. • Windy Knoll: 9 a.m. to noon Saturday. Workdays will take place here every second

Saturday of the month until March. The two upland seep wetlands in this location were donated to TLC in 2002 as part of the Windy Knoll Estates subdivision. Brush clearing and periodic ecological burns have helped restore this site to valuable habitat. The site is between Crystal Lake and McHenry in the Windy Knoll subdivision off Crystal Lake Road. Volunteers should turn on Coachlight Road (west), take the first right on Blue Pine Drive, then turn onto the first left on Sweet Bay Drive. The park on the side of the road. • Waichunas Conservation Area: 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Jan. 13. This woodland was donated to TLC in 2002, and while brush was cleared a couple of years ago, it’s time to go back and get all the resprouting brush and new growth. This area

was planted with hazelnut and ninebark shrubs, and there are many baby oaks everywhere, so the hard work that was put in is really making a difference. To get to the site from the intersection of River Road and Dowell Road north of Island Lake, turn onto Dowell and then right onto South Thomas Court. Volunteers should park along South Thomas Court and walk in from there. No experience is necessary. Tools will be provided. Volunteers should wear work shoes and clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. The Land Conservancy of McHenry County is supported by members, donors and fundraising events. For information, visit or call 815-337-9502.

FEMA team spent 6 weeks on relief efforts • VOLUNTEER

Continued from page B1

Brickley’s team woke early the next morning and packed themselves up, not knowing exactly where they’d stay. “They wanted to send us to the East Coast as quickly as possible, but they also didn’t want to send us into the storm,” Brickley said. “They don’t want to deploy people so quickly that they end up creating more victims.” On Halloween night, as the hurricane dissipated over Pennsylvania, about 220 FEMA Corps volunteers stayed in cramped quarters at a veterans’ hospital in Maryland. They drove to Brooklyn the next day and started working. “Certain areas look like a war zone,” Brickley said. “And then another area would be like nothing happened at all.” Finally, Brickley found out that she and the rest of FEMA Corps would be staying in the Bronx on a training ship for local Marines. The same ship was used as disaster relief housing in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Brickley and her team spent the next six weeks – Nov. 3 to Dec. 15 – digging into relief efforts. As community relations representatives, their job in any disaster is to relay information from FEMA to the community, often about how and where families can receive help. They bring information back to FEMA about any critical cases. In New York, the team set up a makeshift disaster recovery center in a local park, and registered more than 500 people for recovery assistance while the state made arrangements for a more permanent center. There were individual stories, too. “Helping an older couple get out of a house that they were staying in way longer than they were supposed to,” Brickley said. “Helping a person get the funding they need-

The speaker series is cosponsored by McHenry County College, Loyola University Retreat Ecology Campus, and the McHenry County Conservation District.

ics of Shared Prosperity in a Finite World,” presented by Jon Erickson, professor of ecological economics and the interim dean of the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources at the University of Vermont. His presentation will explore the foundations from which to build an economy for the century of the environment, designing resilient systems that align human nature with the realities of growing resource scarcity. Erickson has published widely on energy and climate change policy, land conservation, watershed planning, environmental public health, and the theory and practice of ecological economics. His books include “The Great Experiment in Conservation: Voices from the Adirondack Park” (2009), “Frontiers in Ecological Economic Theory and Application” (2007), “Ecological Economics of Sustainable Watershed Management” (2007), and “Ecological Economics: a Workbook

Helped with relief efforts following superstorm Sandy ed to get somebody in there to get the electricity turned back on.” For Brickley, who’d decided about a year ago to leave a corporate position that would send her to Australia and regularly to places such as Las Vegas and New York on business, the whole trip was an affirmation of her decision to seek a more fulfilling job. “It’s a lot different than going to Vegas and having your company take you out to the best restaurant in the MGM Hotel,” she said. “When that person gives you a hug with tears in your eyes and thanks you so much for being there and giving them your time, there’s nothing like it.” Aside from team leaders, FEMA Corps members are 18 to 24 years old, and work 10-month terms for a modest living allowance and an education award of $5,550 for future education or to put toward student loans. Brickley, who’s based in Vicksburg, Miss., doesn’t know what she will do next after her term expires in June. She’s considering teaching in a high-needs area – either domestically or abroad – or working for a nonprofit. Either way, her perspective has been shaped by her time in disaster relief. “I think a lot of people are really cynical. I was a little cynical too in my old job,” she said. “But it’s amazing to see the strength and the power that these young people have in their work, and their ability to inspire other people. It’s breathtaking.”

Volunteers gathering signatures • GOLF

Continued from page B1

Even if golf course opponents garner enough signatures, the issue of whether the park district buys the golf course might be resolved by the time of the April election. “Will we need it by then?” Daubner said. “Will they have stopped? Will it be a done deal?” Opponents say a purchase of Chalet Hills would take the golf course, which has been foreclosed, off the property-tax rolls, and the burden would be spread among other property owners in the area. Daubner has presented a petition with 513 signatures of people who said they are against the purchase. Volunteers gathered signatures by going door-to-door and

by standing in front of local stores, such as the Jewel-Osco, Daubner said. At a previous meeting, residents of the Homeowners Association of Chalet Ridge said they were in favor of the park district buying the golf course. Park district officials have said the Foxford Hills Golf Club, which the park district bought in 2004, has operated as an independent, self-supporting business. Since 2004, the golf club has brought in $1.8 million. The club has helped offset $160,000 in other park district expenses. Foxford also has provided $187,000 since 2004 for the park district’s capital projects fund, which paid for construction of the 1.8-mile Cary Community Trail adjacent to Cary-Grove Park and the Dog Park at Hoffman Park.

4 candidates vie for 3 trustee seats • ELECTION

member. But Kadakia said that the failed appointment had to do with local politics, not his public service pedigree. Kadakia still serves on the McHenry County Ground Water Task Force and on a transportation panel for the McHenry County Council of Governments. He said that experience, coupled with his trustee term, makes him highly qualified to tackle the issues a growing community, such as Huntley, faces. If elected, his priorities would be expanding the village’s water system and improving Huntley’s infrastructure. “Huntley needs me,” Kadakia said. “With the many candidates on the board, I can do a better or equal job than them. I have the expertise and knowledge to do that.” Goldman, a retired teacher and Chicago Public Schools administrator, is vice president and a founding member of the local historical society. She also is vice president of the Huntley Civilian Police Academy and served on the now-defunct District 158 financial advisory committee. The Sun City resident said she would focus her attention as trustee on economic development, helping a thriving community attract commercial developers and retailers. She also would strive to pre-

serve the village’s rural history. “I have a feeling that Huntley is soaring to greatness, and I want to help map that journey,” Goldman said. After losing two years ago, Westberg said the community has had more opportunities to understand him and his values. The Air Force veteran now serves on the village’s Plan Commission and holds a leadership position with the Huntley American Legion. The former Huntley Jaycees President said he would protect taxpayers, as more developers look to locate to Huntley. He also would maintain the village’s history of fiscal conservatism. Like Goldman, Westberg has never held elected office. “My dedication to Huntley has only increased in the past two years,” Westberg said. “I have learned more about how the village works, as well as I have a better understanding of what our residents care about.” Piwko, who is active with St. Mary’s Catholic Church and the Huntley Youth Baseball league, said he would like to see through the competition of the $69 million Interstate 90 interchange and the Kreutzer Road extension. Piwko, who has been serving as trustee since 2007, said he has many pet projects he would like finalized. That primarily includes a more connected sidewalk and bike path system throughout the village.

Event highlighted recreation opportunities • FISHING

Continued from page B1 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at The Hollows in Cary. Event-goers enjoyed demonstrations, a fishing rod raffle, instruction from Crystal Lake Anglers club volunteers and more. “It was something we were planning, but didn’t know if it would be a go until Wednesday because of the ice conditions,” said Mary Kozub, the MCCD education outreach program coordinator who organized the event. The ice on Lake Atwood measured 5 inches thick Saturday, an inch over the district’s safety threshold. A fall stocking of trout helped push the Frosty Fishing Fair onto the district’s calendar, Kozub said. Adding to the fun Saturday was Tim Hicks of Music in Motion, while members of Boy Scout Troop 222 of Crys-

Monica Maschak –

Park Ranger Chad Secor (left) helps Hunter White, 9, and Elise White, 10, cast their line into the frozen lake for their first ice fishing experience Saturday during the Frosty Fishing Fair at The Hollows Conservation Area. tal Lake served up hot soup, chili and hot dogs, and representatives of Trout Unlimited showed off equipment, offered safety information and presented a fly-fishing demonstration. “We wanted to highlight

the recreational opportunities MCCD has,” Kozub said. “A lot of times, people just don’t realize the things that are available in the county, and the things MCCD does.” A cold rain arrived in the area by late afternoon, but

the sun shone throughout much of the fishing event. And even as clouds and an increasingly frigid wind chill arrived about 12:30 p.m., all was dry except for the auger holes dotting the lake. Seated on 5-gallon buckets near two of those holes were Eric Runck of Huntley and Dave Seimer, a Maple Park resident and Crystal Lake Anglers member who was there to share his ice fishing know-how – as well as some of his equipment. Fifty-year-old Runck, the principal at Fox River Grove Middle School, said he enjoyed the opportunity to learn from a veteran, and added that he was considering taking up the sport. “I haven’t caught anything yet,” he said, gently tugging up and down at the line dangling from a small jigging rod. “But I’ve had several bites. It’s nice just to get out instead of being cooped up in the house all day.”

Sons of some notable current and former pro athletes have been in the news lately: 1. Nick Montana. Tulane received a national letter of intent from the junior college quarterback, the son of Hall of Fame NFL quarterback Joe Montana. 2. Torii Hunter Jr. A wide receiver who committed to Notre Dame, the son of Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter, broke his left femur Thursday during practice for the U.S. Army AllAmerican Bowl in San Antonio. 3. Barry Sanders Jr. Stanford’s freshman running back played the role of Wisconsin’s Montee Ball during practice for the Rose Bowl. 4. Tim Hardaway Jr. (above). He scored 21 points Thursday to help No. 2 Michigan rout Northwestern, 94-66. 5. Raul Mondesi Jr. The Rays traded reliever Burke Badenhop to the Brewers last month for the minor league outfielder, son of Raul Mondesi, who played 13 seasons in the big leagues. –

JOHNSBURG – When the Woodstock boys basketball team met some resistance Saturday after building a double-digit lead in its Fox Valley Conference Fox Division opener, guard Jordan Turner knew how the Blue Streaks responded could be a sign of what kind of team they’d be in the weeks to come.

Until Saturday, Woodstock hadn’t faced a team that fought its way back after falling behind early. So when Johnsburg did just that after making some halftime adjustments, the Blue Streaks were provided with a learning opportunity in handling adversity. Lesson learned. Woodstock answered a Johnsburg third-quarter scoring surge with its own 12-2 run to re-establish its cushion in a 62-52 FVC Fox win.

For the Blue Streaks (11-4 overall, 1-0 FVC Fox), Saturday’s win – Woodstock’s 10th in its past 11 games – became an exercise in execution Turner and his teammates know they’ll have to remember as they move into the meat of their conference schedule. “We had to withstand their comeback,” said Turner, who scored a game-high 22 points.

Desperate for offense

THEY WROTE IT From Berry Tramel The Oklahoman

ARLINGTON, Texas – Maybe the realization came when Johnny Manziel scrambled for a 24-yard gain on the Cotton Bowl’s third play. Maybe it came when Johnny Football tight-roped down the Johnny sideline for a Manziel 17-yard touchdown on the game’s first possession. Maybe it came when Johnny Heisman completed his first nine passes of the third quarter, igniting a second-half rout. Whenever it came, rest assured the revelation landed on Bob Stoops. Thank God for conference realignment. Thank God that Texas A&M bolted for the Southeastern Conference and took its freshman wizard quarterback along. Johnny Football ran away from the Sooner defenders all night long, but at least now he’s in OU’s rear-view mirror. He’s the SEC’s problem. And what a problem he is. Manziel ran and passed the Aggies to a 41-13 rout of the Sooners on Friday night. “It was like watching a guy play Madden NCAA,” said OU captain David King, one of the exasperated Sooner defenders who futilely chased Manziel all over JerryWorld.

Gruden worth call, but others might be better for job Musick: Hey, Joe. First things first: Happy New Year! Second things second: What do you make of the Bears’ coaching search? If you were general manager Phil Emery, would you sniff around regarding the availability of somebody such as Jon Gruden? Stevenson: I believe the Bears will look for an offensive coach. Their last three head-coaching hires have been defensive guys, but it’s an offensedriven league now. Gruden fits that profile and is an intriguing possibility, but I’m not sold on him being the right fit. He’ll probably be pretty expensive too. Not sure how much of a consideration that will be for Emery. Musick: I agree with you that the Bears should go after an offensiveminded coach. Another season filled with three-and-outs might give Bill Swerski and all of his Superfan friends another heart attack. Daaa Bears. I would make a call to Gruden to gauge his interest. After all, he’s a Super Bowl-winning coach, and we



Tom Musick and Joe Stevenson face off all know that he loves to work with quarterbacks. But if Gruden says no thanks or if the price is too steep, which candidate catches your attention the most at this point? Stevenson: I don’t know a lot about some of the candidates, but I like what Mike McCoy has done in Denver and what Bruce Arians has done in Indy. Sure, McCoy has that Manning kid, who’s pretty good, but the Broncos even won a playoff game with Tim Tebow last year. Arians did a heck of a job with a very talented rookie, Andrew Luck, this season and had a head-coaching audition when Chuck Pagano was battling cancer. I’m good with hiring a hot coordinator.

Musick: I’m with you, Joe. McCoy and Arians both come with great qualifications and have proved that they can succeed with a wide range of quarterbacks. When Arians was the Cleveland Browns’ offensive coordinator in 2002, he won nine games with Tim Couch as his quarterback. Imagine what he could do with Cutler. No matter what, I trust that Emery will do his homework before naming the Bears’ next head coach. He really impressed me during his lengthy news conference last week, and I would guess that he selects someone with a similar passion for football and attention to detail. Under Lovie Smith, the Bears almost always were good. Let’s see

The Bears will interview Montreal Alouettes coach Marc Trestman for their head coaching vacancy. PAGE C4 whether the next coach can make them great. Stevenson: It’s encouraging Emery has impressed people so far. This is a huge hire for Emery. He hasn’t been on the job for a full year and this is way more important than a draft pick or signing a game-changing free agent. • Write to Northwest Herald sports writer Tom Musick at tmusick@ Write to Northwest Herald senior sports writer Joe Stevenson at joestevenson@

Huntley’s Hart cherishes chance to coach all-stars

When you have coached as long and experienced the success Huntley football coach John Hart has, you will be in demand. Hart was asked to coach in the Semper Fidelis AllAmerican Football Game last year when he was the head coach at nationally ranked Warren Central (Ind.). Hart was asked back to Carson, John Hart Calif., for the game again this year and coached with the East squad, which defeated the West, 17-14, Friday night at the Home Depot Center. “For me, this is pretty cool,” Hart said. “At the time last year we were

ranked seventh in the nation and I got selected. They asked me if I’d come back, and I said, ‘Yes.’ ” Hart owns a 244-74 record in 28 seasons as a head coach. His teams also won two state championships in Indiana. In his first year at Huntley, Hart took the Red Raiders from 2-7 to 6-4 and to the Class 7A playoffs. The Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl was one of three national AllStar high school football games over the weekend. The Under Armour All-American Game also was played Friday; the U.S. Army All-American Bowl was played Saturday. “This one is probably the thirdbiggest All-Star game,” said Hart, who was in California for most of

PREP ZONE Joe Stevenson a week for practices and the game. “It’s a great honor to get to do this twice. I may never get to do it again in my life.” Hart enjoys working with athletes he will see playing on Saturdays next season and meeting outstanding coaches. “It’s more about relationships [with coaches] than anything,” he said. “Every kid here, 53 on each team, is playing at a major school in a major conference.” Blanton chooses Madison: Rich-

mond-Burton senior Ryne Blanton, a shortstop-pitcher, has committed to play baseball next year at Madison Area Technical College in Wisconsin. The Wolfpack was fifth in the NJCAA Division II World Series last year. Blanton will be a third-year varsity player this spring for the Rockets. Last season, he was 9-3 with a 1.62 ERA, 79 strikeouts and 12 walks in 691⁄3 innings. He also hit .327 with one home run and 29 RBIs as the Rockets advanced to the Class 2A Augustana Supersectional, where they lost to Rock Island Alleman. “I wasn’t getting a lot of [NCAA] D-I looks, so I decided I can go here and after two years, I hope I can go

somewhere big,” Blanton said. Blanton used to see himself as a position player and hitter at the next level, but that changed in the past year. After his outstanding season as a pitcher with R-B, he continued throwing well for Pro Player Consultants and the Racine Hitters, his two summer teams. “I slumped a little bit with hitting, and I had a good summer pitching,” Blanton said. “I’m going to keep on working on pitching more.” • Joe Stevenson is a senior sports writer for the Northwest Herald.

Confess? Armstrong may not gain much By Jim VERTuno

The Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas – Lance Armstrong may be considering a change in course, dropping his years of denials and admitting that he used performanceenhancing drugs – though whether such a move would help him is uncertain. The New York Times, citing anonymous sources, reported late Friday that Armstrong has told associates he is thinking about the move. However, Armstrong attorney Tim Herman says that the cyclist hasn’t reached out to USADA chief executive Travis Tygart and David Howman, director general of the World Anti-Doping Agency. A USADA spokeswoman declined comment Saturday, while Howman was quoted by the Sunday Star-Times in New Zealand, where he is vacationing, saying Armstrong has not approached his group. USADA stripped Armstrong of his seven Tour de France titles last year and issued a report portraying the cyclist as

the leader of a sophisticated doping operation on his winning teams. Public confessions and apologies have been the route of redemption for several athletes who have gotten in trouble. Armstrong has testified under oath that he never used performance-enhancing drugs, which could theoretically lead to charges if he confessed. Former U.S. track star Marion Jones spent several months in federal prison for lying to investigators about her drug use. And after so many years of vehement denials and sworn statements that he never doped, at this point, what would Armstrong gain from a confession? There would be no guarantee that his personal sponsors would return or that the public would accept it. Is the public even interested in an Armstrong confession? Gene Grabowski, executive vice president of Levick, a Washington, D.C.-based crisis and issues management firm, said “it may be too little, too late because he’s been denying it for so long.”


CLC starts slow, rolls By mAuREEn lynCH

CRYSTAL LAKE – Perhaps it was the 30-second timeout Rich Czeslawski called in the middle of the first quarter when his Crystal Lake Central boys basketball team found itself trailing Hampshire on Saturday. Maybe it was forward Kyle Fleck’s appearance shortly thereafter, or the way the Whip-Purs were abusing the boards. Something, at any rate, jarred the Tigers awake. After a lackadaisical first quarter, Central found its track shoes and rolled over Hampshire, 65-33, at Central Fieldhouse in what was billed as a midseason progress report that could pull the Fox Valley Conference Fox Division race into clearer focus. The Tigers’ seven-point first-quarter showing morphed into a 24-point explosion in the second, punctuated by Fleck’s 10 points off the bench. The momentum swing was enough to overshadow the Whips’ 15-5 rebounding

performance in the first and proved to be all the Tigers needed to distance themselves early. “We were standing around a lot,” said Fleck, who scored a game-high 17 points. “We had to pick up some energy. We weren’t playing with any and that hurt because I think we feed off energy as a team.” Czeslawski noted as much during the only timeout he called all game. “All we talked about was ‘Where is the energy?’” Czeslawski said. “It’s hard to say [what it was]. They knew this was a quality opponent. … I think we were just out of sorts. Our shot selection was not there. On defense we were letting them get over the top. I don’t know what caused it but I know we had to get it fixed.” Central (13-1 overall, 2-0 FVC Fox) trailed 13-7 to start the second quarter and used a 14-2 run to go up 21-15 with 3:56 left in the first half. Hampshire (12-3, 1-1) shot 24 percent (13 for 54) to the Tigers’ 51 percent (24 for 47).

JOHNSBURG – Ed Sennett moved from one familiar face to another, exchanging a handshake and a hug with each encounter, discovering that the past 10 years hadn’t changed much. The players the former Johnsburg boys basketball coach had guided to the Class AA state quarterfinals in 2003 were the same now as they were then, making Saturday’s reunion of the school’s championship contenders even more memorable than Sennett expected. Sennett spent time reminiscing with players from a team that finished 30-2 in the 2002-03 season and that became – at the time – only the fourth McHenry County team to reach the Elite Eight, joining the 1952 Alden-Hebron

squad that won a state title. The Skyhawks were honored in a ceremony at halftime of Johnsburg’s 52-42 loss to Woodstock on Saturday as nine former players – including Northwest Herald Player of the Year and two-time NCAA Division II Player of the Year John Smith and star point guard Brad Preston – received a standing ovation for an accomplishment that remains special a decade later. For Sennett, the team wasn’t so much about the games it won, but about the players to make up the roster. “It’s great because the kids I coached 10 years ago are still great kids today,” Sennett said. “They were great kids and you hope great things happen for those kids, and it did. So it was a special team.” Smith, who went on to win two Division II national titles at Winona (Minn.) State, rel-

ished the opportunity to reunite with his teammates after not seeing many of them much over the past 10 years. Three starters from the squad – including Smith, Preston and Shane Neiss – were part of Saturday’s festivities. Smith started to see the makings of a special team as a junior. The combination of Johnsburg’s dominating post players and a point guard in Preston that held everything together along with a bench full of opportunistic reserves led to the Skyhawks making their run that ended in the quarterfinals in a loss to Glenbrook North. “It was just a really fun time in all of our lives,” said Smith, who spent time in the NBA Developmental League before playing professionally in Portugal, Holland and Austria. “They are memories of a great time that all started here.”

Dombrowski scores 17 points in loss • STREAKS Continued from page C1 “Down the road, other teams are going to do the same thing because this conference is so tight.” Woodstock relied on its perimeter tandem of Turner and Andy Buhrow to outscore Johnsburg (6-8, 0-1) in the second quarter to build a 12-point halftime lead. But the Skyhawks transitioned from depending on 3-point shooting in the second quarter to establishing themselves in the post after the half. Woodstock struggled to defend Mike Conroy and TJ Sigmund (15 points) during the opening

minutes of the third quarter when Johnsburg went on a 10-2 run to get to within four points. Kevin Dombrowski, who connected on five of Johnsburg’s eight 3-point field goals, led the Skyhawks with 17 points. That’s when Woodstock went to an inside-out attack that utilized not only Turner’s outside shooting, but an inside presence that included Damian Stoneking, Mitch Kohley and Mason Sutter – all of whom contributed as Woodstock went on its own run to carry a 13-point lead into the final eight minutes. “It’s really a team effort,” Woodstock coach Al Baker

said. Johnsburg tried to respond down the stretch but couldn’t put enough offense together to make the run it needed to shrink the deficit. Despite playing well in stretches, some of the struggles to produce points Johnsburg has experienced during the first half of the season resurfaced. “We need to learn from our losses and our mistakes, and I don’t know that we’re doing that,” Johnsburg coach Mike Toussaint said. “I think we just ran out of gas – we ran out of time. We’d make a run, they’d make a run. We just didn’t make a run at the right time.”

CRYSTAL LAKE – Ryan Gilbert seemingly couldn’t miss. His impressive shooting display Saturday carried the Prairie Ridge boys basketball team past Cary-Grove, 57-38. Gilbert shot 10 of 11 from the floor and was 5 for 5 on 3-pointers. He finished with a game-high 25 points as the Wolves (4-10 overall, 1-0 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division) won their division opener. Teammate Steven Ticknor added eight points in the win.

The Trojans placed first in all three relays, and Michael Hamann won both of his individual events and was part of two winning relays. Sprinter Tyler King also won both of his individual events and participated on two winning relays. “After the last two weeks of training we looked very good at Elk Grove,” coach Rick Schaefer said.

LAKE FOREST – Prairie Ridge’s girls gymnastics team recorded its best team score in school history, had sophomores Riley Mahoney and Rachael Underwood finish 1-2 in the all-around and took the team title while facing some of the state’s best competition. “I’d say it was a B-plus,” Prairie Ridge coach Lee Battaglia said. Senior Savanna Mensching also viewed the performance with critical eyes. “Overall, we did OK,” she said. The Wolves’ co-op team, which combines athletes from Prairie Ridge, Cary-Grove and Crystal Lake Central, scored 150 points to win the Lake Forest Invitational on Saturday, edging Lyons, which had 149.675. The tough self-criticism demonstrates how good Prairie Ridge believes it can be. After placing third in last year’s state meet, the Wolves, who are even deeper now, are shooting for the top. Saturday’s meet allowed the Wolves to see how they compare to state power Lyons and defending state champion Carmel, which was third with 145.625. “There is still a lot of improving we can do,” said Mensching, a senior from Central who was fifth on balance beam. “We need to keep going, keep steady on the course. We just saw some competition like we’ll see at state. There was more pressure here than some other meets. The [150] is good, but we can be better.” Battaglia pointed out that the first of Prairie Ridge’s five competitors in each event had mistakes, which then put more pressure on the other athletes. “I felt bad the first person missed, but I felt good that the other ones did so well after that,” Battaglia said. “Riley [Mahoney] had a great meet. She was very strong in all four events. And Rachael [Underwood] was strong in her first three. We’ll get them a little rest in upcoming meets and get them ready for the regional.” Mahoney scored 38.35 to win the all-around, and Underwood had 37.975 for second, despite a fall on the balance beam that cost her at least half a point. Mahoney won the balance beam at 9.45 and placed in the top five in every event. “I felt like I did really well in all four events,” Mahoney said. “They were all clean. There are a couple of things we want to change and add some new skills [before state]. I’m super-proud of everybody, they all did great jobs and contributed and did their part.” Underwood had three topthree finishes and freshman Maddie Solka was fifth in the uneven bars. Battaglia used eight gymnasts in the various events, with only Mahoney and Underwood competing all-around. “We definitely want to be one of the teams other teams fear,” Mahoney said. “We came here and did what we needed to do and proved it to everybody.”

KAPALUA, Hawaii – For those who think the PGA Tour season never ends, here’s a new twist: This one can’t get started. The season-opening Tournament of Champions was postponed for the second straight day because of gusts that topped 40 mph and made it impossible to play golf. Unlike the previous day when 24 players managed to tee off, no one hit a shot Saturday on the Plantation

Instead of a foul, officials called it a kicked ball. Nowitzki had a team-high 20 points in 34 minutes, his most extensive action this season. Nuggets 110, Jazz 91: At Denver, Danilo Gallinari scored 26 points and Denver rebounded from a rare home loss to beat Utah. Andre Iguodala added 18 points for the Nuggets.

Bears add surprise candidate to their list By TOM MUSICK

The Bears’ coaching search apparently has extended north of the border. In a surprise twist, the Bears will interview Montreal Alouettes coach Marc Trestman for their head coaching vacancy, the NFL Network reported Saturday. Trestman coached the Alouettes to back-to-back Grey Cup titles in 2009 and 2010 as

the top team in the Canadian Football League. Yet Trestman also knows the rules of American football quite well. He has trained many top young quarterbacks, including Jay Cutler before the 2006 NFL draft and Jason Campbell before the 2005 NFL draft. Among others he has worked with are Tim Tebow before the 2010 NFL draft and Brandon Weeden before the 2012 NFL draft. Before he moved to Mon-

Follow us Follow the Bears Insider feed on Twitter for updates on the Bears online at twitter. com/bears_insider. The Bears Insider blog is online at treal, Trestman spent 17 years in the NFL as an assistant coach. He served as offensive

coordinator of the Cleveland Browns, San Francisco 49ers, Arizona Cardinals and Oakland Raiders. During his stint in Oakland from 2001-03, the Raiders appeared in Super Bowl XXXVIII and quarterback Rich Gannon was named 2002 NFL MVP. On Trestman’s official website, a variety of colleagues and players have endorsed him for his aggressiveness as a play-caller and his leadership ability as a coach. Those who

offer praise include Hall of Famer Jerry Rice, who played for Trestman with the 49ers, and ex-coach Jon Gruden, who had Trestman on his staff with the Raiders. “I think he is one of the most creative minds in football,” Gruden said, “and he probably isn’t getting enough credit for what he has done as an offensive strategist in the NFL.” Trestman is the eighth candidate to be linked to the

Rivera to stay with Panthers The aSSOCIaTEd prESS

Seattle Seahawks quarterback russell Wilson (left) and Washington redskins quarterback robert Griffin III are set to go head-to-head today in the playoffs.

RG3 or RW3? By JOSEpH WHITE The Associated Press

WASHINGTON – How convenient. Those who can’t decide between Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson are literally getting a playoff. RG3 or RW3? They’ve only had two of the best two rookie seasons for quarterbacks in NFL history, according to the numbers. Time to compare and contrast as much as possible today as Griffin’s Washington Redskins host Wilson’s Seattle Seahawks in the NFC’s wild-card round. “I don’t play against quarterbacks. It’s not my job to compare us,” Griffin told reporters this week. “You guys will do that. ... I hope you guys have fun.”

OK, Robert, we’ll take you up on that. Hey, Redskins Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams, why is your guy better than theirs? “I definitely would take his hair over Russell Wilson’s hair,” Williams said. “He’s taller. He has a couple of more endorsements than Russell does. That gives you grounds enough to take RG3 over Wilson. Way cooler TV commercials.” Funny, but there might be some truth to that, at least when it comes to getting one’s due. Griffin has the dreadlocks. Wilson has the regular, clean-cut hairdo. Griffin is in your face with his Gatorade commercials and the ubiquitous Subway spots. Wilson did a more subtle bit for Levi’s.

Rookie quarterbacks lead Redskins, Seahawks

Griffin won a Heisman Trophy, was the No. 2 overall pick in the draft, was anointed as starter from Day one of training camp and was selected as a team captain at midseason. Wilson was a third-round pick who had to wrest the starting job from big-contract free agent Matt Flynn. Griffin’s jersey is the No. 1 seller across the NFL this season, while Wilson’s is a mere No. 19. Griffin’s slogan is “No pressure, no diamonds.” Wilson’s is “Separation is in the preparation.” Unlike Griffin, Wilson hasn’t bothered to trademark it. RG3’s nickname stands alone . Wilson might have been “HW4” had he been born earlier, but it’s his older brother who got the name Harrison

Wilson IV. Wilson also has “DangeRuss” – which he includes in his Twitter handle – while “RW3” is an upstart attempt to play around with Wilson’s jersey number. As for the league’s offensive rookie of the year award, none of the above might win it: Andrew Luck of the Indianapolis Colts could top them both after his sensational debut. Today’s game will be the second in NFL playoff history with two starting rookie quarterbacks, but this is a case where both the winner and loser are expected to prosper. Because of RG3 and RW3 (or whatever nickname sticks for Wilson), the Redskins and Seahawks have a chance to be very good for a very long time.

HOUSTON – J.J. Watt swatted away passes, Arian Foster ran away from tacklers and the Houston Texans did just enough to knock Cincinnati out of the playoffs for the second straight year. Matt Schaub made his postseason debut a successful one when Foster’s 1-yard touchdown in third quarter helped the Texans to a 19-13 AFC wild-card playoff win over the Bengals on Saturday. Now comes the big test. The Texans (13-4) move on to the second round on Jan. 13, when they visit the New England Patriots, who beat them 42-14 in Week 14. Shayne Graham kicked four field goals for the Texans, while Foster finished with 140 yards and became the first NFL player to have 100-yard games in each of his first three playoff games. Watt finished with a sack and swatted away two of Andy Dalton’s pass attempts, once wagging

The Texans had trouble finishing drives and managed three field goals in the first half against the Bengals (10-7). Houston struck first after the break, with Foster scoring the game’s only offensive touchdown to make it 16-7. Schaub, who missed last

year’s playoffs with a foot injury, had an interception returned for a touchdown by Leon Hall before halftime. “It was never easy,” Schaub said. “Cincinnati is a great team. I made a turnover and gave them points. We just had to rally around each other and we did that.” Johnathan Joseph, a for-

mer Bengal, came up with an interception for the Texans, who kept Cincinnati without a playoff win since 1991, the league’s longest current streak. “I think it was a full defensive effort, everybody was flying around and we were getting off the field on third downs,” Watt said. Houston had struggled on third downs lately. This time, the Texans didn’t let the Bengals convert a third down on nine tries. The Texans rebounded from a terrible month where they lost three of four games and the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs. The win came in front of a record crowd of 71,738, including former Oilers great Earl Campbell. “We like to run the ball and play good defense,” Foster said. “It only takes one week to turn things around in the NFL and we did that.” Schaub shook off his firsthalf miscue to finish 29 of 38 for 262 yards.

Peterson limited to 99 rushing yards • paCKErS Continued from page C1

Peterson was held to 99 yards – an improvement after gaining 199 and 210 in the first two games. Webb, who hadn’t thrown a pass all season, was sacked three times and off target all night. His only highlight was a 50-yard scoring pass to Michael Jenkins late in the fourth quarter, but it was far too late for the Vikings (10-7). With a little over a minute left, Packers fans began taunting the Vikings with chants of “Nah-nah-nah-nah ... goodbye.” The win snapped

a two-game losing streak at Lambeau Field in the playoffs, and sends the Packers to San Francisco next Saturday for an NFC divisional game with the 49ers. The teams met in the season opener, with San Francisco winning, 30-22. “The main thing was to come out and help this team get a big win,” said Charles Woodson, playing in his first game since breaking his right collarbone Oct. 21. “This is the first playoff game for us this year and we want to continue to ride.” This was the third game in six weeks between Green Bay

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Ron Rivera will return as coach of the Carolina Panthers next season following his team’s strong finish. Panthers spokesman Charlie Dayton said Rivera met with owner Jerry Richardson Saturday morning and was informed that he will return for a third season. Rivera has two years on his current contract. “He’s going about normal preparations for next season,” Dayton said. Rivera’s status with the Panthers had been up in the air pending a meeting with Richardson on Saturday morning. Richardson fired longtime GM Marty Hurney after a 1-5 start and informed Rivera at the time Panthers needed to be “trending upward” the rest of the season. The Panthers went 6-4 from that point out, including four straight wins to close the season. It’s unclear at this point if Rivera, who went 13-19 in two seasons with Carolina, will be forced to make any changes to his staff. The Panthers finished this season 7-9, good for second place in the NFC South. Rivera won a Super Bowl with the Bears in 1985 as a linebacker and broke into the coaching ranks shortly after his nine-year NFL career ended, first serving as an understudy to Dave Wannstedt in Chicago.

and the Vikings, and second in six days. The Packers’ loss in Minnesota last weekend cost them the No. 2 seed in the NFC, along with a bye this weekend, and left them looking – dare we say it? – vulnerable going into the playoffs.

ing Oregon’s Kelly: At Cleveland, on the 10th anniversary of their last playoff appearance, the Browns may be in an unexpected fight over Oregon coach Chip Kelly. Cleveland has been awaiting a second meeting with Kelly, the Ducks’ offensive mastermind, on Saturday to hopefully complete a deal to make him the Browns’ sixth fulltime coach since 1999. However, Kelly decided to keep a scheduled interview with the Eagles that carried into the night, delaying the Browns’ second chance at signing college football’s hottest coach. Kelly and his representatives met with Browns owner Jimmy Haslam and CEO Joe Banner for a reported seven hours in Arizona on Friday. Kelly also met with the Buffalo Bills on Friday.

After a loss, a family learns to widen its embrace By JiM LiTKe

The Associated Press

MIAMI – Declan Sullivan would have loved this weekend. For all the doubts his family has confronted in the 27 months since the death of their first-born son, his father is certain about that. “Like a lot of the kids in our neighborhood, Declan grew up a Notre Dame fan,” Barry Sullivan said. “He heard the stories in our house, we took him to games, it was always a part of his experience and in a way, I guess, his identity. That’s what made him so determined to go there. “But as he got a little older, he began to appreciate what made it special, beyond just the football. ... Then he got into business school there and he’d call home, talking about the value of Notre Dame degree. “And what I remember now, thinking about back then,” he added, his voice trailing off, “was how much he’d grown up.”

Declan Sullivan, named after an Irish saint, never got to finish that journey. He was killed in an accident Oct. 27, 2010 – a fall off a 40-foot lift, from atop which he was taping a Notre Dame practice. He was 20. What placed him there on a day when wind gusts pushed past 50 mph was the rambunctious spirit he displayed even as a kid, and the dream of getting himself on the football fields at South Bend one day. His family’s presence at Monday’s national championship game between Notre Dame and Alabama is a way of remembering that spirit, just as they honored his memory by creating a memorial fund – partnering with the Horizons for Youth organization – to help other youngsters set off in whatever directions they chose. “That was the way Declan was,” Barry Sullivan recalled. “When he got something into his head, it was tough to shake.” His father took it as a sign of

his son’s growing maturity when Declan altered his plan to get on the field, telling Barry he planned to trade in his shoulder declan pads and the sullivan football team for a trumpet and the jazz band in his senior year of high school. But his plan to make it into the marching band didn’t pan out, either. Then one of his professors at Notre Dame mentioned there might be a chance to work as a videographer for the football team, and all those days Declan spent lugging his family’s video camera around, filming everything, made it seem a comfortable fit. When his sister, Gwyneth, followed him to Notre Dame, the Sullivans brought along their third child, Macartan, on road trips from their home in suburban Chicago, and the games became family weekends. “He’d be assigned to film dif-

ferent aspects of the games, but we’d always all meet up in the same spot, on the walk between the practice fields and athletic department building where he had to turn in his cameras. When we go back there now,” Barry Sullivan recalled, “it’s still the place we meet afterward.” A memorial plaque marks the spot now, barely two dozen steps from where Sullivan fell to his death. “Sadness, I guess is what I remember most about that time,” Notre Dame lineman Mike Golic Jr., said. “Declan’s a guy we all miss a lot and it’s hard to imagine what they went through. I have all the respect in the world for his family, for the way they carried themselves and how they’ve handled it since.” In the immediate aftermath, there were fingers pointed, calls for accountability and speculation about lawsuits. The Sullivans anguished over mistakes made, knew only too well his death could have been

prevented. Yet they remained quiet throughout. “We heard it, all of it, the speculation, the liability claims, but that was not our first impulse and frankly, we never found reason to think any differently,” Barry Sullivan said. “We kept quiet first out of a respect for privacy and also because an investigation was going on. “But we never felt the need to pursue any legal action. We never felt like we had to teach anybody a lesson. ... At every juncture, they treated us with kindness and concern, sympathy and obviously, they accepted responsibility for what had happened. We had great sorrow of our own to deal with, but it was plain that they were suffering, too. Maybe if we’d been confronted with a cold, unfeeling institution, we would have felt different. “But Alison (Drumm, his wife) and I looked at each other and we just kind of realized,” he concluded. “ ‘If we don’t pursue this, nobody else can,

either.’ ” The state of Indiana and university conducted investigations. Notre Dame paid a $42,000 fine to the state for safety violations. A moment of silence was observed before the next game against Tulsa, when the Irish came out with shamrock decals with Sullivan’s initial on their helmets. The gestures that meant the most to the Sullivans were the private conversations with the Rev. Paul Doyle and university president, the Rev. John Jenkins, whose candid admission in an email sent to the Notre Dame community concluded, “Declan Sullivan was entrusted to our care, and we failed to keep him safe.” Some people are dismayed to this day that was enough for the Sullivans. Yet they never looked back, determined only how they could go forward. They wondered about whether they could return to South Bend and find even traces of the joy the place held for them once.

No. 11 IllINoIs 74, No. 8 ohIo state 55

Illini rebound with blowout of Buckeyes by DaVID MeRceR The Associated Press

CHAMPAIGN – Just before halftime Saturday, Illinois point guard Tracy Abrams crashed into the Ohio State bench chasing a loose ball. After bending over in pain for a long minute, he hobbled off the court without the ball. Abrams’ tough play already had the respect of firstyear coach John Groce. And after a game of similar hard-nosed effort by Abrams and his teammates, the 11thranked Illini had a 74-55 blowout win over No. 8 Ohio State just days after dropping their Big Ten opener – and getting out-toughed, as Groce put it – to Purdue. “Oh, I love it – that’s toughness plays, passion, inspiring plays,” Groce said. “Any time a guy sacrifices his

body to make a play for his team, that’s the highest level of teamism – I don’t know if that’s a word.” The win by Illinois (14-2 overall, 1-1 Big Ten) came at the expense of Groce’s former boss, Buckeyes coach Thad Matta. Groce was an assistant to Matta at Ohio State (11-3, 1-1) before taking over as head coach at Ohio. Matta agreed that Illinois earned the win with tough defense. But, as he watched 6-foot-11 sophomore center Nnanna Egwu score a careerhigh 16 points – a number of them on long jump shots – the longtime coach said the game had a sense of inevitability about it, too. “We’d seen that he could shoot, but when he started knocking down 17-footers, it was like, ‘Geez, this is really their day,’” he said.

Golden Eagles pull off upset of Georgetown the assocIateD pRess

MILWAUKEE – Davante Gardner made two free throws with 8.3 seconds left and Marquette had to hang on while No. 15 Georgetown missed a deciding free throw in 49-48 victory for the Golden Eagles on Saturday. WithMarquetteleading49-46, Greg Whittington of the Hoyas was fouled by Trent Lockett on a baseline 3-point shot with 2.3 seconds left. He made the first two free throws and after Marquette coach Buzz Williams called a timeout, hit the front of the rim on the final attempt. Lockett grabbed the rebound, but missed two free throws and the game ended without the Hoyas attempting a final shot. Marquette (11-3, 2-0 Big East) has won four consecutive games. Georgetown (10-2, 0-1) had its seven-game winning streak snapped in its first road game of the season.

TOP 25 No. 21 Notre Dame 93, Seton Hall 74: At South Bend, Ind.,

Scott Martin had a season-high 22 points on a career-high six 3-pointers and Jack Cooley added 19 points and 13 rebounds to lead Notre Dame to its 11th straight win. The winning streak is the second-longest for the Irish (131, 1-0 Big East) in 13 seasons under coach Mike Brey. The loss ended a seven-game winning streak for Seton Hall (12-3, 1-1).

No. 16 Creighton 79, Indiana

State 66: At Omaha, Neb., Doug McDermott had 25 points and nine rebounds, and Creighton used a 19-4 run to break open a close game in the second half. The Bluejays (14-1, 3-0) are off to their best start in Missouri Valley Conference play since 2003-04. The Sycamores (9-5, 2-1) lost for the 14th straight time in Omaha since 1999. No. 17 Butler 57, New Orleans 44:

At Indianapolis, Kellen Dunham scored 15 points and Khyle Marshall added 13 to lead Butler. The Bulldogs (12-2) are 7-0 at home this season and will take a nine-game winning streak into their Atlantic 10 debut Wednesday night at Saint Joseph’s. The Privateers (3-10) were led by Lovell Cook with 11 points.

BIG TEN No. 18 Michigan State 84, Purdue 61: At East Lansing, Mich.,

freshman Gary Harris scored a season-high 22 points and Michigan State used a 28-7 run in the second half to pull away. The Spartans (12-3, 1-1 Big Ten) missed their first 10 shots from the field after halftime, but it didn’t much matter in what quickly became a free throw contest. Michigan State finished 18 of 22 from the line. Branden Dawson had 14 points and 11 rebounds for the Spartans. A.J. Hammons scored 20 points for the Boilermakers (77, 1-1).

Illinois guard D.J. Richardson brings the ball downcourt during the first half against No. 8 ohio state on saturday in champaign. No. 11 Illinois won, 74-55. Brandon Paul led Illinois with 19 points and had seven rebounds. Abrams added 13 points and five assists, and reserve Joseph Bertrand scored 12 points. Egwu also had eight rebounds. Wednesday’s 68-61 loss to

Purdue – a team with a .500 record heading into Big Ten play – was Illinois’ second loss in three games after a 12-0 start. It left the Illini and their fans with questions about how good this team might be, and with Ohio State on the

schedule, a tough test ahead. The Buckeyes had won six of the last seven games between the teams. But the Illini started fast and led 37-25 at halftime. They used a 13-2 run early in the second half to build a 50-27 lead. Illinois’ stingy defense shut down the Buckeyes, who shot just 33 percent from the field and turned the ball over 16 times. Groce said the Buckeyes’ turnovers were a gift his team used early. “We got some points off turnovers in the first half that I think ignited us,” he said, adding that he didn’t expect Ohio State to cough up the ball. “No – in fact, I said before the game they’re going to take care of the ball, that’s what [Matta’s teams always do.”

The efforts of Illini big men – Egwu, Sam McLaurin and Tyler Griffey – were a big part of Illinois’ defensive success. Ohio State had just 10 points in the paint in the first half. Deshaun Thomas led Ohio State with 24 points, but beyond him the Buckeyes had no one to turn to for offense. Aaron Craft had a quiet 11 points and Lenzelle Smith Jr. finished with eight, all in the first half. “They played good defense and we could never get that one bucket to kind of free us up a little bit, free our minds a little bit,” Matta said. Illinois added to its edge early in the second half with a 13-2 run. Bertrand finished it, driving to the basket and hitting a short jumper as the shot clock wound down for a 50-27 lead with 15:05 to play.


STATE DePaul 83, Providence 73: At

Providence, R.I., Cleveland Melvin scored 23 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead DePaul to a win over cold-shooting Providence. Brandon Young and Jamee Crockett each had 15 points for DePaul (10-5, 1-1 Big East). Bryce Cotton had 20 points for the Friars (8-6, 0-2).

Dynamic Living Series at Northwest Healthcare

Clock starts ticking for financial aid

• Email

Breaking news @

Business editor: Chris Cashman •

More than 17 million college students started applying Jan. 1 for financial aid available for the next academic year. Access to most of the $236 billion in financial aid requires preparing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid application, which asks more than 130 asset, income and dependency questions. Financial aid, available to nearly all students regardless of income, can significantly reduce students’ out-of-pocket college costs. According to Student Aid Financial Services Inc., in the 2011-12 academic year, undergraduate students on average received $13,218 in aid, including free grants; low-cost, federal education loans; and work-study opportunities. Students, who receive education support from military aid programs, also may increase their aid award by submitting a FAFSA. The free U.S. Department of Education FAFSA website is www.fafsa. Preparing a FAFSA pays off in another significant way for firsttime college students. A 2011 study published by the Journal of Student Financial Aid showed first-year students who submit a FAFSA are 72 percent more likely to continue in college than students who do not file the aid application. Preparing a FAFSA is even more significant for lower-income students who are eligible for free Pell Grants. They are 122 percent more likely to remain in college compared to students who do not submit a FAFSA. Accuracy is essential. Mistakes often can significantly reduce a student’s financial aid award. Timing also is important. Most aid is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Many states and colleges have specific financial aid deadlines. A free hands-on workshop to complete the federal financial aid form online using college computers will be from 5-8 p.m. Feb. 21 at McHenry County College in Room A123. Appointments are required. Staff members from the Office of Financial Aid and Veteran Services at MCC will help students and/or parents complete the online form for the 2013-14 FAFSA. Call 815-455-8761 beginning Feb. 1 to schedule an appointment. Elgin-based College Funding Team holds free workshops to explain students’ options for applying for financial aid and tips for maximizing an aid award. All workshops begin at 7 p.m., and students and their parents are encouraged to attend: • Feb.7 at the Woodstock Public Library, 414 W. Judd St., Woodstock. • Feb. 28 at the Huntley Park District, 12015 Mill Street, Huntley. • March 7 at the Woodstock Public Library, 414 W. Judd St., Woodstock. For more information, call 800713-2151 or visit Other resources include Student Financial Aid Services, which has assisted more than a million families prepare and file the FAFSA via the phone and Internet. The organization offers FAFSA preparation online for $79.99 and telephone preparation for $99.99. call toll-free 1-877-323-7224 or visit Professional FAFSA preparation can save time. Students new to the FAFSA spend about 78 minutes to complete a FAFSA alone, according to the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System. Repeat FAFSA applicants shave only 11 minutes off that time. In comparison, Student Financial Aid Services walks a student (or parent) through FAFSA preparation in about 20 minutes by telephone.

Sam Conners, program director and co-owner of Corkscrew Gymnastics & Sports Academy, works with Jenelly Rios, 8, Lexi Belyaev, 6, and Riley Ten Bruin, 5, all of McHenry, on the uneven bars during a beginner’s gymnastics class.

Fun and fitness

Corkscrew Gymnastics equipped for recreation Corkscrew Gymnastics & Sports Academy

By CYNDI WYSS McHENRY – Eleven-year-old Gabby McMillan bounded off the gym floor at her mother’s call, then paused to catch her breath as she pondered a question. “I like how the people teach you how to do stuff that you don’t know how to do yet, and there’s a lot of fun activities, like dodgeball,” said the Wonder Lake girl, still breathing hard after running around the gym at Corkscrew Gymnastics & Sports Academy with two of her three siblings. The new business is located at 2309 N. Ringwood Road, Suite Q, McHenry. It is a dream come true for Karina Pauly, her husband, Rich Pauly, and their business partner, Sam Conners, aka Coach Sam, aka program director. Along with the Paulys and Conners, the gym employs trainer Alexis Madura. Corkscrew Gymnastics opened Dec. 3, about a year and a half after the Paulys and Conners shared chilled treats and conversation. “We were out for an ice cream cone one day and Rich said ‘Hey, would you like to open a gym?’” said Conners, who is USA Gymnasticscertified and at that time had been coaching the Paulys’ daughter, Ava, for about four years. The gym at which Ava had been learning had closed. So the three decided to give the business a shot, melding Conners’ gymnastics expertise with Rich Pauly’s business acumen and Karina Pauly’s desire to provide a venue appealing to parents. Karina Pauly, also a dental hygienist, manages the sports academy office. Rich Pauly, who works in project management at an area firm, composed the trio’s winning business plan.

They also helped us find bankers to approach,” she said. Conners said the partners’ biggest investment to date has been in equipment. Visitors at Corkscrew Gymnastics will find a 42-by-42-foot competitive gymnastics floor, Spieth Anderson uneven bars, a competition beam, mats, a 30-foot-long tumble track (like a rectangular trampoline), a pommel horse and more. They even have an object that

looks like a cushioned, three-dimensional, open-mouthed Pac Man symbol, which Conners referred to as a back handspring machine. Corkscrew offers lessons for all skill levels and ages, from 16 months to adult. Ten-week sessions range from $115 to $150, and new enrollees can join mid-session at a pro-rated fee. Also offered are twice weekly twohour, supervised open gym times. Visitors pay $5 for one hour or $10 for two. Dodgeball is offered at 5 p.m. Saturdays. The fee is $10 for a twohour session. Birthday party packages and private lessons also are available. Conners said that for now, the partners are focusing on recreational rather than competitive gymnastics. “Everyone’s out to build that next Olympian,” Conners said. “That’d be great, but we’re more into physical fitness, getting back into health … something besides video games.” After becoming established, they hope to expand and build competitive programming. Meanwhile, it’s purely about fun and fitness. “I’m learning how to do a cartwheel,” said 11-year-old McMillan, and she headed back toward the mats.

WOODSTOCK – The popular monthly Dynamic Living Series resumes at 7 p.m. Jan. 16 at the Northwest Healthcare Center, 800 E. South St. in Woodstock with “Five Tips for Healthy Eating and Weight Loss for the New Year.” “This time of year many of us make resolutions to try to drop a few pounds and adopt a healthier lifestyle,” said Clinic Director Dr. James Kearns. “Our staff will help answer your concerns and questions in order to create a new you.” Chiropractor Dr. Luke Smith will be discussing the revolutionary “Wheat Belly” diet, which turns the USDA Food Pyramid Guidelines upside down. “If you’ve been on diet after diet over the years with little or no success, learn what cutting-edge science is finding out about how what you eat affects your physiology in ways that sabotage all your hard work and best intentions,” Smith said. Dr. Kearns will separate myth from fact as they relate to how diet and exercise change the metabolism. Staff reflexologist Emilee Bozic will demonstrate referral points on the soles of the feet to increase over all well being and complement a diet and exercise regime. The program is free and open to the public. Pre-register by calling 815 337-7109, or visit

Being a self-proclaimed “Tax Geek” is a bit like being a 3-year-old: I don’t just follow the law, I have to ask, “Why?” That has certainly come in handy when digesting and understanding the myriad of regulations enforced by our friends at the IRS. And just to be clear, your beef should not be solely directed at the IRS. Congress makes up the laws, the IRS is the agency charged with implementation and enforcement. So back to the “Why?” Often IRS rules seem silly or punitive or both. But not if you take Nancy’s Toddler Approach to Tax Law and ask, “Why?” For example, a few months ago, this newspaper published a Letter to the Editor that caught my eye. It was written by an esteemed colleague and fellow CPA. She had learned of a recent court case that disallowed a tax deduction for a charitable contribution because the donor did not have a “contemporaneous written acknowledgement,”

or CWA. To most of us, that is called “a thank you letter.” My colleague wanted to give our community a heads-up: For every contribution you make, you must have a written acknowledgement from that charitable organization. In fact, for contributions of $250 or more, your canceled check will not suffice – you must have a CWA in order to claim the deduction. At first glance, you may be perplexed by this requirement but when you understand its purpose, it makes perfect sense. In 2006, Congress passed the Pension and Protection Act of 2006. Sweeping reforms were made with respect to tax-exempt organizations in an attempt to curb abuses by taxpayers. There are recordkeeping and substantiation rules imposed on donors of charitable contributions and disclosure rules imposed on charities that receive certain quid pro quo contributions:

NONPROFITS Nancy Gonsiorek • A donor must have a bank record or written communication from a charity for any monetary contribution before the donor can claim a charitable contribution on his/her federal income tax return. • A donor is responsible for obtaining a contemporaneous written acknowledgment (CWA) from a charity for any single contribution of $250 or more before the donor can claim a charitable contribution on his/her federal income tax return. • A charitable organization is required to provide a written disclosure to a donor who receives goods or services in exchange for a single payment in excess of $75. • A donee organization must state in the CWA whether goods or ser-

Home State promotes Susong to assistant VP

Better to be safe than sorry Dear Dave,

My wife and I are 70, and we have $950,000 in annuities in the market, plus $68,000 in our emergency fund. The only debt we have is our mortgage. I’m considering converting our stocks to a money market account to lower the risk. What do you think?

– Howard

Dear Howard,

There are two sides to this. One is the asset allocation method, where as you grow older you move away from equities like mutual funds toward safer, more conservative investments like money markets, bonds and certificates of deposit. This is standard financial planning theory. I disagree with that theory, and here’s why. Statistics show that if you make it to 72 years of age and are in good health, you have a high probability of living into your 90s. If you’re making around 1 percent on your money market and inflation is 4 to 5 percent, then your money isn’t going to be worth a lot. You need to outpace inflation, at least with your investments, in order to break even. You might move some cash over to money markets and CDs for your own peace of mind, but I’d also recommend growth and income mutual funds along with some balanced funds. You want the entire group to be hitting the 4 to 5 percent range over the next several years, so you can at least keep up with the rising costs of gas and bread. In my mind, you’re avoiding one type of risk by moving everything to money markets, but you’re taking on a different kind of risk – the chance you’ll get tackled from behind by inflation. My advice is to balance things out so you can sleep better at night, but at a pace where you and your money stay ahead of the curve!

Susong is responsible for the planning, delivery Susong and success of all elements of the Senior Class Club at Home State.

Susong has been an employee of Home State Bank for nearly 23 years and has been an active director of the Senior Class Club at the bank for more than 16 years.

vices have been given or received in exchange for said contribution. You can see that the IRS has placed responsibility on both the donor and the donee organization to properly report charitable contributions. Seems crazy? Not really. I call this the “Golf-Outing Rule.” The federal government loses millions every year from improperly prepared tax returns. One area of concern is the deduction allowed for a charitable contribution as it pertains to fundraising events. This is your golf outing, dinner dance, silent-auction purchase, or any other creative avenue of fundraising activity conducted by an exempt organization. These are quid pro quo contributions: part purchase, part contribution. Many taxpayers want to claim a deduction for the total ticket price for the event; however, the allowable deduction is the difference between the consideration given

You may call it crazy, but I call it genius – the federal government has essentially “deputized” tax-exempt organizations and tax preparers as enforcers of the Golf-Outing Rule.

Dear Dave,

My wife just had our first child. As a result, we now have $2,500 in medical bills not covered by insurance. We’ve got $7,000 in our emergency fund, and I make about $25,000 a year. Should we dip into our savings for this or set up a payment plan with the hospital?

Dear Matthew,

Congratulations on your new baby! I know this is going to make the new year extra-special for you. If I were in your situation, I’d write a check today and knock out that hospital bill. This definitely falls under the heading of “emergency” in my mind, so pay the bill and jump back into rebuilding your emergency fund. You’ve done a good job of saving on $25,000 a year, but let’s look around and see what you can do about making more money, too. Additional classroom education or extra training in your field could increase your income pretty quickly. Your emergency fund probably needs to be a little bit bigger as well, and it’ll be a lot easier to make this happen if you’re bringing in more cash. I’m sure you’re a hard-working guy, but the truth is it’s going to be pretty tough for even a small family to make it on what you’re bringing home now. Life happens, and the unexpected can become a common occurrence when there’s a little one loose in the house!

Auto comeback Chevrolet Sonic tells story of GM’s revival The Associated Press

DETROIT – When the word reached the Orion Assembly Plant, it spread along the serpentine assembly line like news of a death or natural disaster: General Motors, the biggest automaker in the world, had filed for bankruptcy protection. On that grim day in 2009, Chevrolet and Pontiac sedans kept rolling down the line. And 1,700 worried workers stayed at their stations even as GM announced it would close the plant in a desperate bid to survive. “The unknown was the scariest part,” recalled Gerald Lang, who had worked at Orion for two years installing dashboards and doors. “We really had no clue what was going to happen.” There was something else that the workers didn’t know: They were witnessing the opening act of one of the greatest recovery stories in American business. Nearly four years later, Chevrolets are still moving down the assembly line under the plant’s 82-acre roof. Lang and his co-workers now build the Sonic, the best-selling subcompact car in the nation. It’s a vehicle no one thought could be made profitably in the U.S., by a company that few people thought would last. But GM has not only survived, it has earned $16 billion in profits in the past three years. And the industry is on track to make this year its best year since 2007. Detroit’s improbable comeback is the work of many: President George W. Bush, who authorized the first bailout loans; President Barack Obama, who made more loans; workers who took lower wages and focused more on quality to compete with foreign rivals; and executives and designers who developed better cars amid the financial maelstrom happening around them. To be sure, there were victims: shareholders, auto-parts makers and other suppliers who went out of business, as well as taxpayers who will never get all their money back. But there is no denying

that American carmakers have made a remarkable recovery. Nearly 790,000 people now have jobs building cars, trucks and parts, up 27 percent from the dark days of 2009. The story of the Sonic shows how the industry, along with a community in a downtrodden state, got there. The collapse of the industry in 2008 that nearly put GM and Chrysler out of business and cost Ford billions of dollars came from a perfect storm that included the Great Recession, expensive gasoline and the financial meltdown that dried up funding for car loans. But the automakers’ problems were years in the making. They had business models that couldn’t generate enough cash to cover expenses. They had too many factories making too many cars and trucks. They sold too many vehicles at discounts or even steep losses just to move them out of showrooms to make room for more. And their workers earned more in wages and benefits than Japanese competitors. Even when autoworkers were laid off, companies couldn’t get them off their books. Union-mandated “jobs banks” forced automakers to keep paying workers whose plants had been shut down. They got paid to sit in rooms and do crossword puzzles. Years of losses caused the three U.S. automakers to

rack up $200 billion in debt, about half the liabilities that are now strangling Greece. GM alone lost $82 billion in the four years before bankruptcy. All three companies had to pay escalating health care costs for workers and a staggering half-million retirees — a number about equal to the population of Portland, Ore. At GM, medical costs for workers and retirees added $1,500 to the price of a car. An increasingly bad situation turned worse during the 2001 recession, which was followed by rising gas prices that lasted for most of the decade. Then came the 2008 financial meltdown. As GM and Chrysler careened toward bankruptcy, President Bush stepped in, loaning $17.4 billion to GM and Chrysler just before he left office. But auto sales remained in a free fall, plummeting to a 30-year low of 10.4 million by the end of 2009. At the Orion plant, the recession had slowed sales of the midsized Pontiac G6 and Chevrolet Malibu cars that were made there. In February 2009, the company eliminated a shift and laid off 400 workers. The outlook darkened even more when GM announced it would dump the Pontiac brand. Since the G6 made up half of Orion’s production, workers feared the plant was doomed. It didn’t take long for issues inside the plant to ripple outside to the surrounding concrete industrial parks. Dozens of auto-parts companies laid off workers. At Casey’s Chicken, a barbecue joint in a nearby strip mall, a healthy side business catering GM birthday and retirement parties dried up. About that time, Orion Township’s chief executive, Matt Gibb, got a call from Ed Montgomery, President Obama’s auto-recovery czar, telling him the plant was on a secret list of GM factories to be closed. The factory was the township’s largest employer and taxpayer. About a third of its 35,000 residents work for GM, Chrysler or parts suppliers. As Gibb watched the local economy unravel, he was haunted by a documentary

AP file

Tammy Ballard works on a Chevrolet Sonic at the General Motors Orion Assembly plant in Orion Township, Mich. Nearly four years after GM filed for bankruptcy protection, the automaker is building the Sonic, the best-selling subcompact car in the nation. he had seen about Janesville, Wis., where another GM plant had closed, leaving behind empty industrial parks and ball fields overgrown with weeds. “I don’t want to be Janesville,” he told friends. GM, meanwhile, was drowning, even with emergency loans from the government. On June 1, 2009, it became the largest American industrial company ever to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. It had just $2 billion in cash and $172.8 billion in liabilities. The bankruptcy wiped out GM’s debts, allowed it to shed 21,000 jobs, dump 2,600 dealers and close factories, including Orion. “It was like somebody just took the heart out of you,” recalled Mike Dunn, the chief United Auto Workers union bargainer at Orion. “You didn’t really know if you would have a future.” As lawyers for GM and its creditors fought in court over scraps of the company, Orion’s second chance emerged. In exchange for its $50 billion bailout, the government got a 60 percent stake in the company and GM agreed to build a tiny car known as the Sonic at one of the U.S. plants it was closing. Smallcar production had long been relegated to other countries where wages weren’t as high. But GM couldn’t take government money and build a small car overseas. For folks in Orion like Dunn and Pat Sweeney, the lo-

cal union president, the mission was clear: Get the Sonic. First, they met with Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm and other state officials, who promised GM a $779 million, 20-year tax credit. Gibb spent all spring organizing petition drives and thinking of ways to cut the plant’s costs. So when an army of GM lawyers and tax experts showed up at his office, he was ready with a generous package of tax incentives. The township also promised a new $4.5 million water-storage tower and pledged to buy water at off-peak hours so GM could get lower rates. The tax abatement cost the township and its schools about $780,000 per year, but Gibb said it was worth it to save the plant’s roughly 3,600 jobs. If the plant closed, he estimated that half of the area’s commercial properties would be vacant within two years. Plus, the township was competing with Janesville and Spring Hill, Tenn., which had a newer factory than Orion. At the end of June, GM made up its mind: The Orion factory would get the small car. But there was a catch. The plant had to shut down for more than a year to be revamped — a closure that would further threaten businesses in a fragile economy. Dunn watched as workers removed the plant’s equipment, knowing GM could pull out of the deal at any time. “You could see from one end to the other,” he said.

“There was nothing in there but cement and pillars.” Early in 2010, Americans began returning to car dealerships as the economy improved. Sales were nowhere near pre-recession levels, but they were enough for GM to celebrate its first quarterly profit in three years. As a dreadful winter ended, GM delivered on its promise to invest at Orion. Crates of robot arms, carts and conveyor parts arrived, filling the vast open space that had frightened Dunn just a few months earlier. By midyear, Lang, the assembly line worker, got an offer from GM to move 160 miles away to Lordstown, Ohio, to work on the Chevrolet Cruze. By then, it was clear Orion would reopen to build the Sonic, and there were hopes of getting another car, the compact Buick Verano. Lang and his wife had saved some money and decided to stay in Michigan, foregoing GM pay and benefits until he was called back to work at his home plant. By summer of 2011, he was back on the job testing the assembly line. “Pack your lunchbox and head off to work. That’s a great feeling,” he said. Gradually, all the older workers who wanted to return to the plant were hired back at the same pay as when they left. New workers were added at the lower wage, adding up to 1,800 on two shifts. The first Sonic, a white hatchback, rolled out of the Orion factory in August 2011.

Why car sales are strong in the U.S. The Associated Press

DETROIT – It’s not quite boom times for the U.S. auto industry. But it’s getting there. Sales of new cars and trucks rose 13 percent to 14.5 million in 2012. And if they climb much beyond that, they’ll be closing in on a high set in 2005. Cheap loans, a host of new cars and greater confidence in the economy are drawing buyers into showrooms. Plus, Americans who hung on to aging cars during the recession are ready to trade them in. Here are the highlights and lowlights of 2012, and what’s coming from the industry in 2013:


Volkswagen saw a 35-percent jump in sales in 2012, one of the biggest increases in the industry. The new Passat midsize car was the driver, with sales up 413 percent over 2011. Chrysler’s sales jumped 21 percent thanks to strong sales of the Dodge Caravan minivan and the Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV.


Both General Motors and Ford gained sales in 2011 when the earthquake hurt their Japanese competitors. But the Japanese snatched those sales back in 2012, and GM and Ford lagged behind the industry. GM saw a 4 percent sales increase for the year, hurt by weak truck and Cadillac sales. Ford’s sales were up 5 percent after new versions of some of its biggest sellers — the Ford Escape SUV and Fusion sedan — had to be recalled for safety problems. But they still had plenty of bright spots. Car and

SUV sales were solid. New models like the Ford C-Max hybrid and the Buick Verano small car were well received.


Those who wrote off Japanese carmakers after Toyota’s recalls in 2010 and earthquakerelated car shortages in 2011 were wrong. Japanese companies, who struggled after the earthquake, got their U.S. supplies back to normal in the first few months of 2012 and never looked back. Toyota’s U.S. sales rose 28 percent and the Camry sedan had its best year since 2008. Honda’s sales rose 24 percent, while Subaru was up 26 percent.


The Chevrolet Sonic, GM’s first really competitive small car, quickly became the bestselling subcompact in the U.S. last year. Sales hit 81,247. Sales of the Volkswagen Beetle surged 400 percent to 28,654 after a more aggressive, masculine design hit showrooms. The latest version of the Honda CR-V, a favorite family hauler, set an annual sales record of 281,652. The Toyota Prius jumped 73 percent to 236,659 thanks to new wagon, subcompact and plug-in versions.


The new Dodge Dart, a compact that was rolled out with much fanfare last summer, didn’t start gaining momentum until the end of the year. December sales were 6,105, or more than double those in August, but still just a fraction of competitors like the Chevrolet Cruze. Sales of the new Chevrolet Malibu were up just 3 percent in 2012. The new Nissan Altima, which has a more dramatic design and a host of

advanced features like a lane departure warning system, has struggled in a crowded market. Altima sales were flat or down for three of the last four months of 2012.


Small cars were big sellers as gas reached $3.60 per gallon, which AAA said was the most expensive annual average on record. The Ford Focus compact jumped more than 40 percent and outsold Ford’s midsize Fusion. Honda Civic AP file sales jumped 44 percent and nearly outsold the Accord. A lift brings a Volkswagen Beetle from a tower at the Autostadt in Wolfsburg, Germany. Beetle sales surged 400 percent last year. Sales of the Fiat 500 mini car more than doubled.


After four years of lackluster sales, big pickups started to gain traction late in the year. Home construction began to recover. That directly affects pickup sales because builders feel more confident and replace old trucks. Those trucks needed replacing; the average U.S. pickup is more than 11 years old. Sales of Ford’s F-Series rose 10 percent for the year. Chrysler Ram sales rose 20 percent, and the Toyota Tundra was up 23 percent. Jesse Toprak, vice president of industry trends for the auto pricing site, said businesses buy trucks when they see new ones on the road.


Electric cars continued to struggle because of high price tags and worries about a lack of places to charge up batteries. GM cut production of the Chevrolet Volt in the spring and later began offering big discounts to juice sales. The Volt ended 2012 with total sales of 23,461, which was triple its sales in 2011.

TODAY - Remain optimistic while looking for upswings in both your personal and financial affairs in the year ahead. Adopting some positive convictions is one of the quickest ways to attract good things in ways you might never suspect. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your enthusiastic nature is exceptionally contagious, and it won’t take much to get others involved in whatever interests you. However, you’ll be selective as to whom you enroll. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- This could be one of those strange days when you might not do much right, yet everything will

turn out OK. Work on something big while Lady Luck is with you. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- What makes you so effectively persuasive is your ability to isolate a key person and turn him or her into your ally. This person will convince others to join your cause. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Something you’re trying to put together with another has a good chance of succeeding if you plan your strategy while your mind is rested and, consequently, a bit sharper than usual. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- If you’re required to make an important decision that







is likely to have some far-reaching effects, try to make it now, while the aspects say your faculties are keenest. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You want to see things through to their conclusions, but sticking to any one project is another story. Today, however, chances are you will finish what you start. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Your sphere of influence is likely to be very pronounced, making a strong impact on most everything you do. You’ll even be able to solve some difficult problems with ease. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don’t allow




small, problematic distractions to disturb you. You’ll have a natural way of working things out for the ultimate good, regardless of hiccups. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- If you’re not totally spent from the holidays, make an effort to make some quality time for activities that require physical and mental exertion. It’ll help revitalize your outlook. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You could be rather fortunate where your material circumstances are concerned. The opportunity to profit from one of your many irons in the fire is quite high.





SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Bold leadership, good judgment and strong initiative can be some of your more dominating characteristics, and it’s one of those times when you might be motivated to use them all SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Huge influences that you probably aren’t aware of will be stirring beneath the surface. When they do decide to emerge, they’ll prove to be materially lucky for you.
