kcraver@shawmedia.com SPRINGFIELD – McHenry County as of Wednesday has eight faces representing it in the General Assembly, courtesy of Democratic-dominated postcensus redistricting. Whether this will magnify the county’s voice in Springfield or weaken it – Crystal Lake is divided among three House and three Senate districts – will be seen over the next two years. The 98th General Assembly

was sworn in at noon Wednesday, not even a full day after the lame-duck session of the 97th failed to come close to getting a handle on the state’s ballooning $96 billion unfunded pension liability. And besides a bunch of new faces, the new bunch of lawmakers include three – all Chicago Democrats – who are facing criminal charges. McHenry County’s representation is a mix of old and new faces – all of them familiar. Returning are incumbent

WASHINGTON – Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday vowed urgent action against gun violence in America, pledging steps by the Obama administration that he said could “take thousands of people out of harm’s way” and improve the safety of millions more. But a day ahead of a meeting with the National Rifle Association, which has sunk past gun-control efforts and is opposing any new ones, Biden signaled that the administration is mindful of political realities that could imperil sweeping gun-control legislation, and is willing to settle for something less. He said the administration is considering its own executive action as well as measures by Congress, but he didn’t offer specifics. “I want to make it clear that we are not going to get caught up in the notion that unless we can do everything, we’re going to do nothing,” Biden told an array of guncontrol advocates, crime victims and others at the White House. “It’s critically impor-

tant we act.” Shortly after last month’s slaughter of schoolchildren in Newtown, Conn., President Barack Obama tasked Biden with heading a commission to come up with recommendations on gun policy by the end of this month. Obama supports steps including reinstating a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines and closing loopholes that allow many gun buyers to avoid background checks. The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence says that some 40 percent of gun sales are made without background checks, such as at gun shows and over the Internet.

Blind party loyalty will never see the light

Anyone who’s been watching what’s happened in recent weeks in both Washington, D.C., and Springfield should be astounded at what government is unable to accomplish. Call it laziness, stupidity, stubbornness. Blame the media, Lovie Smith, violent video games or whatever helps you believe that you understand it better. But it’s actually even simpler than that. The reason is the frenzy of hyper-partisan politics. People who cling to party regardless of the argument, facts, circumstances and, in some case even ideals, have always baffled me. It’s as though there’s a part missing in their brain, and I expect scientists to someday discover tissue scarring in the cerebral cortex or some other scientific explanation for this psychological disorder. Humorist P.J. O’Rourke summed up my feelings on our two major political parties fairly well. “The Democrats are the party that says government will make you smarter, taller, richer, and remove the

8LOTTERY

VIEWS Kevin Lyons crabgrass on your lawn. The Republicans are the party that says government doesn’t work and then they get elected and prove it.” That doesn’t mean that people’s ideology won’t cause them to lean a certain way or side with the positions of one political party over another. That’s perfectly rational and to be expected. And this doesn’t mean that any political candidate or politician who attaches an “R” or a “D” to his or her name is a fool. Generally speaking, it’s a requirement to get elected to higher office. But political parties themselves exist for only one purpose: to create more power for the party. As a unit, that’s what they do. It’s up to the individuals to do what’s in the best interests of the state or the nation as

a whole, just don’t expect a political party to do it. That often means making the other side look bad so you look better, which again has nothing to do with solving real problems, whether it’s the deficit, the state’s pension crisis, entitlement spending, or something else. Maybe your party won’t even look better, but it’s a considered a win if the other guy looks worse. There’s always an election on the horizon and an opportunity to amass more power. Some of this is our own fault as a lazy electorate. We’d prefer that a party or a news outlet that tailors content for one particular kind of audience do our critical thinking for us. It’s us against them, even though “them” often are our neighbors, co-workers and sometimes our own family members. We cling to unreasonable positions because: 1) the Constitution demands it 2) Barack Obama likes it or doesn’t like it 3) John Boehner wants it or hates it 4) rich people are evil 5)

unions are greedy, and on and on. Then we elect candidates who boast about how they will not compromise even though this representative, three-branch system of government demands compromise for government to function. We even mock and chase people out of office for having the audacity to compromise. We have no tolerance for tolerance. This take-no-prisoners approach often leaves taxpayers as prisoners. Growing deficits. Ballooning unfunded pension mandates. A hands-off approach to entitlement spending. Status quo. So when considering candidates, also consider just how attractive unbending party loyalty is and ask yourself whether you’re getting exactly what you wished for.

Wife says poisoned lottery winner had no enemies By JASON KEYSER

The Associated Press

CHICAGO – The wife of a Chicago lottery winner who was poisoned with cyanide said Tuesday she was devastated by his death and cannot believe her husband could have had enemies. Shabana Ansari spoke to The Associated Press a day after news emerged that 46-yearold Urooj Khan’s death in July was the result of cyanide poisoning and not natural causes, as authorities initially concluded. Prosecutors, Chicago police and the Cook County

Medical Examiner’s Office are investigating Khan’s death as a homicide, but have not given any details, announced any suspects or said whether they believed the lottery win could have presented a motive. Ansari would not talk about the circumstances of her husband’s death, saying it was too painful to recall. She said only that he fell ill shortly after they had dinner together. She described Khan as a hardworking and generous man who would send money to orphanages in their native India. “I was shattered. I can’t be-

lieve he’s no longer with me,” the short, soft-spoken Ansari said tearfully, standing in one of three dry-cleaning businesses her husband started after immigrating to the U.S. from India in 1989. Khan’s death on July 20 was initially ruled a result of natural causes. But a relative’s request for a deeper look resulted in the startling conclusion months later that Kahn was killed with the poison as he was about to collect $425,000 in winnings. Authorities won’t identify the relative. Ansari, who said she has spoken with police

detectives about the case, said she was not the one who asked for a deeper investigation and that she doesn’t know who did. “I don’t think anyone would have a bad eye for him or that he had any enemy,” said Ansari, adding that she continues to work at the dry cleaner out of a desire to honor her husband and protect the businesses he built. Khan planned to use the lottery winnings to pay off mortgages, expand his business and give a donation to the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Obama to tap budget expert Lew to lead Treasury The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama will nominate White House chief of staff Jack Lew to be his second-term Secretary of the Treasury, turning to one of Washington’s most knowledgeable budget experts to manage prickly fiscal negotiations with Congress and steer the still-shaky national economy.

Lew’s nomination, expected today, accelerates the overhaul of Obama’s top advisers, with new leaders at the Pentagon,StateDepartment,Central Intelligence Agency and Labor Department. Obama also must replace Lew with a new chief of staff, and that could have a ripple effect through the West Wing’s senior ranks. A day ahead of the formal announcement, White House

Watchdog says tax law is too complex By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER The ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON – The nation’s tax law is so thick and complicated that businesses and individuals spend more than 6 billion hours a year complying with filing requirements. That’s the equivalent of 3 million people working full-time, year-round. As a result, about 90 percent of filers will either pay a tax preparer or use a computer software service to help with their federal tax returns this spring, according to a report Wednesday by an independent government watchdog. “The existing tax code makes compliance difficult, requiring taxpayers to devote excessive time to preparing and filing their returns,” said the report by Nina E. Olson, the National Taxpayer Advocate. “It obscures comprehension, leaving many taxpayers unaware how their taxes are computed and what rate of tax they pay. It facilitates tax avoidance by enabling sophisticated taxpayers to reduce their tax liabilities and provides criminals with opportunities to commit tax fraud.” Olson said the tax code also “undermines trust in the system by creating an impres-

sion that many taxpayers are not compliant.” She ranked complexity as the most serious tax problem facing taxpayers and the Internal Revenue Service in her annual report to Congress. Momentum is building in Congress to overhaul the tax code for the first time since 1986. But Washington’s divided government has yet to show it can successfully tackle such an issue. President Barack Obama and Republican leaders in Congress say they are onboard, although they have rarely seen eye to eye on tax policy. They struggled mightily just to avoid the year-end fiscal cliff, passing a bill that makes relatively small changes to the nation’s tax laws, compared to a major overhaul. “Our broken tax code has become a nightmare of loopholes and special interest provisions that create added complexities and costs for hardworking taxpayers and small businesses,” said Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., chairman of the tax-writing House and Ways and Means Committee. “Comprehensive tax reform will make sure everyone is playing by the same rules, and help businesses create more jobs and invest in their

8BRIEFS Maday convicted of charges in 2009 escape

CHICAGO – A bank robber was convicted Wednesday of overpowering county lawmen transporting him to a courthouse in 2009, snatching their guns and forcing one guard to hand over his pants before going on a daylong crime spree in Chicago’s suburbs. Federal jurors in Chicago convicted Robert Maday on all five counts, including escape, aggravated bank robbery and brandishing a weapon during the escape and bank heist. Maday, 42, of Elk Grove Village, faces a mandatory minimum prison term of nearly 50 years. Maday’s escape from the two guards, who were driving him to a Rolling Meadows courthouse to be sentenced for an earlier robbery conviction, sparked a pursuit that included carjackings and a bank robbery.

Ferry strikes NYC dock; many seriously injured

NEW YORK – A high-speed ferry loaded with hundreds of commuters from New Jersey crashed into a dock in lower Manhattan on Wednesday during the morning rush hour, seriously injuring 11 people. Scores of people who were waiting to disembark were hurled to the deck or launched into walls by the impact, which came after the catamaran Seastreak Wall Street slowed after a routine trip across New York Bay and past the Statue of Liberty, passengers said.

Arizona sheriff launches patrols outside schools

PHOENIX – The sheriff for metropolitan Phoenix has launched a plan to have as many as 500 armed volunteers patrol areas just outside schools in an effort to guard against shootings like month’s attack that left 26 people dead at a Connecticut elementary school. Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio said Wednesday that he plans to have 400 posse volunteers and 100 volunteers known as reserve deputies patrol 59 schools in unincorporated areas of metro Phoenix and communities that pay his office for police services. The patrols began Monday at some schools.

WikiLeaks case likened to Civil War espionage

FORT MEADE, Md. – Prosecutors are using a Civil War courtmartial to advance their case that an Army private charged with sending hundreds of thousands of classified documents to the secret-spilling website WikiLeaks aided al-Qaida. Lawyers for Pfc. Bradley Manning refute the government’s claim that Manning’s case parallels that of Pvt. Henry Vanderwater, a Union soldier convicted in 1863 of aiding the enemy by giving an Alexandria, Va., newspaper a command roster that was then published. Vanderwater was sentenced to three months of hard labor and a dishonorable discharge.

Press Secretary Jay Carney praised the expected nominee: “Over the past more than quarter of a century, Jack Lew has been an integral part of some of the most important budgetary Jack Lew financial and fiscal agreements, bipartisan agreements in Washington.”

Lew, 57, would bring to Treasury a mastery of federal budget mechanics, honed during two stints as director of the Office of Management and Budget. While running OMB during the Clinton administration, Lew helped negotiate a balanced budget agreement with Congress, something that has eluded Washington ever since.

Lew’s budget background could help shape the Obama administration’s strategy in talks with congressional Republicans over the federal debt ceiling. GOP lawmakers are expected to demand deep budget cuts as the price for agreeing to raise the debt limit, which is expected to be reached sometime in February. “His resume is tailor-made

for what is most important right now,” said Diane Swonk, chief economist at Mesirow Financial in Chicago.” On Wall Street, Lew was managing director and chief operating officer of Citi Global Wealth Management and then Citi Alternative Investments. At the start of the Obama administration, he oversaw international economic issues at the State Department.

Self-portraits: Holmes sticks out tongue, has guns By DAN ELLIOTT

The Associated Press CENTENNIAL, Colo. – The photos were chilling and enigmatic, just like their subject. In the pictures, taken on his iPhone hours before the Aurora movie theater massacre, accused gunman James Holmes mugs for the camera, sticks out his tongue and smiles as he holds a Glock under his face and displays his arsenal arrayed on his bed. Prosecutors who displayed the pictures at a hearing that ended Wednesday argued the photos display “identity, deliberation and extreme indifference.” Holmes’ attorneys – who have been setting up an insanity defense and said they might present testimony about the defendant’s mental health – decided not to call any witnesses. A judge is due to rule by Friday whether prosecutors presented enough evidence to justify Holmes standing

President Joe Biden met with families of victims as part of the White House’s own gun control push. Prosecutors presented the most detailed description of the attack and Holmes’ alleged months of preparation. But they never addressed the mystery of why Holmes opened fire six weeks after leaving a neuroscience graduate program. Legal experts say evidence against Holmes is so strong that the case may end in a plea deal. That would make the hearing the only detailed presentation of the evidence that victims, their families and the public will hear. Holmes sat impassively through much of the proceedings, watching intently as a surveillance video showed him entering the theater lobby. Family members, who had a better view of Holmes’ face than the media did in the packed courtroom, said he smiled several times, especially when the photos were shown.

State again fumbles pensions fix The best thing that can be said about the just-completed, lame-duck session of the Illinois General Assembly is that lawmakers, at least, did no further harm. For the record They didn’t do anything to fix We sound like a broken Illinois’ sinking record, but state officials aren’t public pension listening. Pension reform must systems or dire be the top priority of the new fiscal situation, General Assembly. sadly. But the way things went down the last lame-duck session two years ago, when Gov. Pat Quinn and Democratic legislators rammed through a massive, last-minute tax increase, we might just chalk up “doing no harm” as a win. Or a tie, anyway. And that says pretty much everything that needs to be said about the sad state of governing in the Land of Lincoln. Kidding aside, pension reform must be the top priority for the new General Assembly that was sworn in Wednesday. Illinois’ five public pension systems are underfunded by more than $96 billion. It was less than a year ago when that number was $83 billion. With every day of inaction, it only will climb. While it was far from perfect, we actually liked some elements of a pension reform bill that was being debated earlier this week. The bill was an amended version of one proposed by Rep. Elaine Nekritz, D-Northbrook. It seems like a good starting point for the new General Assembly. Among other things, the bill would push back the age that retirees can get their automatic 3 percent cost-of-living increases to 67 years. It also would be applied only to the first $25,000 of a retiree’s pension. The annual increase actually should be less than 3 percent and should kick in even later, but the proposal is better than what we have now. The bill also would increase employee contributions to their own pensions by 2 percent of salary, with the first 1 percent kicking in the first year and the second in year two. We’re not sure if this is enough, but some increase is absolutely necessary. The biggest problem with the bill is that it did little to address the current underfunded liability. Some lawmakers argued that the bill is unconstitutional as written and the state risks a court challenge if it passed. The state Constitution says pension benefits cannot be diminished. But it’s better to meet that challenge head on than to keep putting off meaningful reform and risk insolvency. When it was clear that Nekritz’s bill didn’t have enough votes, Quinn presented a bizarre, last-minute proposal that would have lawmakers turn over responsibility for fixing pensions to an unelected supercommittee. We’re not sure what to make of this desperate idea other than to say it’s further evidence that Quinn is in over his head. Here’s where we stand: For the new General Assembly, pension reform must be the top priority. The threat of a court challenge and more bad ideas from Quinn can’t get in the way. Don’t wait until the end of this new session. Get it done right. And get it done now.

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Obama’s vacation

To the Editor: President Barack Obama has not acted presidential on the whole fiscal crisis. When the bill on the fiscal cliff was passed, he had already returned to Hawaii, at a cost of several million dollars to the taxpayers, and was not even present to sign the bill. Instead, he used an autopen. I wonder if this means the bill is not legal. He now is pushing for a resolution to the debt ceiling while he is still on vacation when he should be in D.C. working on a solution. Many people say Obama won reelection due to the fact that there were more takers than givers. Looks like he is a big taker himself, since a vacation is more important to him than doing his job.

In your recent article about teens’ online behavior, Mark Peloquin stated that “allowing children to have computers in their bedrooms is one of the worst things a parent can do.” I am now 19 years old and have had a computer with Internet access in my room since I was 11, and unsupervised access to a computer since I was 9. I was allowed to do this because my parents had faith in my common sense. Don’t share details with people

you don’t know. It should be common sense in your household, and if it’s not, don’t blame the Internet. Not all strangers on the Web are pedophiles. In fact, one of the strangers might be your child! Even other kids! What a novel concept: teenagers networking with other teenagers in a medium that isn’t school. It can allow them to be creative and find new outlets as well as meet people with similar interests. That being said, teens who are derelicts on the Internet aren’t that way because of the Internet – they were that way before. If you can’t trust them in real life, they don’t deserve unsupervised access. But by using strict parental controls, you’re stymieing their self-education. How will you know how to ride a bike if your parents don’t trust you to take the training wheels off?

it’s practical. The student body is highly motivated because they see a direct pay-off.” So, another “freebie” for criminals who can’t speak English. I have a suggestion. Since the English language is fast becoming the minority, let’s have SSL (Spanish as a Second Language) offered at McHenry County Jail. The $2,142 grant also should include helping the English-speaking criminals. Read more here: http://tinyurl. com/a2srqk2. Diana Arden Fox River Grove

Servants to government

To the Editor: Here’s some McHenry County College news: “The jail’s fall ESL class costs $2,142 and is funded by the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act grant.” “Anytime you have an educational program, especially if we can help teach English language for people who will leave a secure detention facility, it benefits them and it benefits the community,” McHenry County Sheriff Keith Nygren said. “It’s a good program;

To the Editor: Collectivism is alive and well in the U.S. Politicians are seeing to it that we become servants to the government. How else might one explain the fiscal cliff? They say it was avoided, but you are poorly informed if you do not realize our country fell off the fiscal cliff long ago. Take a look at the nation’s debt and its forecasted levels. We are becoming “workers,” fortunate to keep a fraction of our pay. An increasing percentage of our earnings are sent to the

government, which decides how our money is distributed. Assisting those who are truly in need is acceptable. The premise that the government must “take care” of us, however, is silly and proved to be a bad choice. Case in point, Greece. Why does President Barack Obama vacation on our dime while we are in the midst of continued economic disaster? Why do we allow him to travel to and from Hawaii in such luxury? Most of us wrestle with declining household budgets while he spends our money, lavishly, in a manner similar to the “1 percent” he allegedly is targeting. His second term is only starting; we must fight the larceny of our earnings. The idea of “paying their fair share” ... who determines that figure? Apparently, the 77 percent of us who are seeing our taxes go up, thanks to the fiscal cliff agreement, we’re not paying enough! Local, state and federal taxes taxing bodies, stop taking our money. Stop spending first. We are running out of other people’s money. John Mercurio McHenry

Watching Honey Boo Boo like following stranger to bathroom WASHINGTON – No one forced me, but I finally decided it was time to discover what all the business was about Honey Boo Boo. Even though I’ve made reference to the show featuring a former beauty tot, now 7, and her family, I’d never actually watched a full episode. I still haven’t, but I watched enough to need a jaw adjustment. Alas, a few minutes with “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” confirms that even mindlessness has its limits. It gives me no pleasure to add to the ridicule of Honey, whose real name is Alana, or her family. That they have willingly participated in this spectacle – and, one hopes, are getting filthy rich in the process – is of little consolation. Far more offensive than the show is the fact of an audience. Obviously, people watch because it is so awful. You can’t believe it and so you keep tuning in. But is it right to watch? Only to the extent that it is acceptable to accompany strangers to the restroom. Such diversions are reminiscent

of carnival sideshows of my childhood – the bearded lady (who perhaps suffered hormonal excesses) or the fat lady (whose rolls of adipose were spectacularly offensive and, for her, no doubt tragic). Responsible parents steered their children away not only to protect them but also because, we were taught, it wasn’t right to enjoy the misfortunes or disadvantages of others. No such lessons seem to prevail today. If we don’t revel in the hilarity of poor, uneducated people, neither do we protest their exploitation. Our silence conveys approval while ratings disprove objection. Culturally, we are all complicit in the decline of community values. Whereupon, we reluctantly praise free speech. I, too, argue – mostly with myself – that we tolerate the worst in defense of the best. We don’t need a First Amendment to protect the sublime or the popular, but to protect what is unpopular and, in collateral damage, the grotesque. Of course, such notions origi-

VIEWS Kathleen Parker nally were aimed at unpopular political speech. The goal was to liberate ideas, which is not the same as exploring man’s basest instincts. One needn’t be a scholar to infer that our nation’s Founders were little interested in sharing the details of their ablutions or such bodily bloviations as are aired on so-called reality TV. Reality, after all, is what civilization attempts to mitigate. The Honey Boo Boo family proudly shares even that which Beano intends to prevent. During the episode I watched, one was privy to a family weigh-in on a scale deserving of pity, the labor pains of what appeared to be a teenager, and a smattering of remarks about various anatomical regions once quaintly referred to as “privates.” In urgent need of purification, I changed the channel and, lurching

past my usual flat-line pursuits, landed in a documentary about Alexandria (ancient Egypt, not modern Virginia.) How do you spell relief? (Don’t ask Honey Boo Boo.) Hearing about a day 2,300 years ago, when knowledge was valued as much as gold, was like sinking into a warm bath. Alexander the Great, who had conquered much of the world by age 24, had learned early during his tutelage under Aristotle that knowledge is the greatest power and set about to make his city the aggregator of the world’s intellectual bounty. Alexandria’s library, ultimately destroyed by future hordes, was the largest on the planet – the World Wide Web of antiquity. Outdoor classrooms were as ubiquitous as Starbucks today. Undoubtedly, there were plenty who, unable to avail themselves of Alexander’s noble intentions, happily would have cradled a remote control device that permitted them passive depravity. But what was striking is that the larger culture collectively aimed at something

higher. Yes, as some are bound to note, there was blood in the streets. Alexandria through its history was home not only to some of mankind’s greatest intellectual achievements but also to some of the human race’s vilest expressions of violence. Notably, in the fourth century A.D., Christian mobs dragged the beautiful and brilliant Hypatia – philosopher/mathematician/ astronomer/teacher – from her carriage and commenced to strip, flay and chop her into pieces before burning her body parts on a pyre. A confessed pagan, she was a tad too smart for divinely inspired men – what with that astrolabe she was always toying with. So not all was lovelier in other times. But culture does matter, as Alexander knew more than 2,000 years ago. Would that our attentions today were as riveted by our Hypatias as by our Honey Boo Boos.

Troop plan follows Iraq playbook By LARA JAKES

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON – It’s the same debate, the same numbers and practically the same plan, but the White House is working harder to keep troops in Afghanistan than it did in similar but failed discussions in Iraq in 2011. Security remains shaky in both war zones, but current and former U.S. officials say the Obama administration cannot afford to lose in Afghanistan after a dozen years of fighting and an ongoing threat by al-Qaida and its extremist Taliban allies. Defeating al-Qaida and bolstering Afghan forces to prevent the terror network’s return there has been a top priority for President Barack Obama since he took office, while ending the war in Iraq was the fulfillment of a campaign promise. “We’ve made a lot of progress against al-Qaida, but the

Iranians freed in major prisoner swap in Syria

DAMASCUS, Syria – Rebels freed 48 Iranians on Wednesday in exchange for more than 2,000 prisoners, including women and children, held by Syrian authorities – a deal struck after rare negotiations involving regional powers Turkey, Qatar and Iran. It was the first major prisoner swap since the uprising began against President Bashar Assad nearly 22 months ago. Iran is one of Assad’s main allies, and the Iranians, who were seized outside Damascus in August, were a major bargaining chip for factions trying to bring down his regime in the civil war that has killed more than 60,000 people. The exchange also highlighted the plight of tens of thousands of detainees languishing in Syrian prisons, many of whom were picked up at street protests and have not been heard of since.

Hamas flagship university grooms Hebrew teachers

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip – Hamas’ flagship university in Gaza has a new diploma on offer – Hebrew, the official language of its arch-foe Israel. Gaza’s Hamas rulers say they want to produce qualified teachers as the government gradually introduces Hebrew studies in its high schools. The aim is simple: It wants Palestinians in Gaza to learn their enemy’s language. There are 19 students enrolled in the first one-year Hebrew diploma course offered at the Islamic University in Gaza City, a stronghold of Hamas, the Islamic militant group that has ruled Gaza since 2007. Hamas does not recognize Israel, is officially pledged to its destruction and has killed hundreds of Israelis in suicide bombings, rocket strikes and other attacks.

job is not done,” Doug Lute, the top White House military adviser on Afghanistan, told reporters this week. “The Afghan National Security Forces are a work in progress.” The U.S. has 66,000 troops in Afghanistan, down from a peak of about 100,000 as recently as 2010. Just how many troops might remain is at the heart of widespread discussion in Washington, where Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai meets with Obama on Friday. As initially in Iraq, U.S. officials are considering keeping between 3,000 and 15,000 American troops in Afghanistan after 2014. That would not happen, however, if U.S. troops are denied legal immunity from prosecution in Afghanistan – which ultimately is what ended the same negotiations in Iraq. “We’ve seen this movie so many times,” said Sen. John McCain, the senior Republican on the Senate Armed

Services Committee, who remains troubled over the Iraq withdrawal. In an interview Wednesday, he urged the White House to keep more than a few thousand troops in Afghanistan “to make a difference and not just become targets for attacks by a resurgent Taliban.” Karzai met Wednesday with Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and three members of the Foreign Relations and Armed Services committees. Asked what number of U.S. forces he would like to see in the country, Karzai declined to answer and joked that he was told by the “organizer of the Senate” to keep quiet. “I hope we get back to Afghanistan with what the Afghans expect of me to take back,” Karzai told reporters. A Pentagon report to Congress in December concluded that only one of 23 Afghan National Army battalions was judged to be capable of oper-

ating in the field on its own – and even then needed international security advisers. Afghanistan was dubbed “Obama’s war” after the president surged troops there in 2009 to chase out extremist militants and eliminate their ability to return. By contrast, Obama as a candidate for president had called Iraq a “dumb war” and made ending it a campaign pledge. However, the Obama administration negotiated with Baghdad throughout 2011 to keep U.S. troops in Iraq as a sort of insurance policy to block Iran from meddling in Iraq’s Shiite-led government and, in turn, reignite the country’s Sunni insurgency. Ultimately, Iraq’s parliament refused to renew an agreement to give legal immunity to thousands of American forces, and the U.S. military left at the end of that year as required under a deadline set in 2008 by the administration of President George W. Bush.

Bells to ring for same-sex couples By BRETT ZONGKER The Associated Press

WASHINGTON – The Washington National Cathedral had been ready to embrace same-sex marriage for some time, although it took a series of recent events and a new leader for the prominent, 106-year-old church to announce Wednesday that it would begin hosting such nuptials. The key development came in July when the Episcopal Church approved a ceremony for same-sex unions at its General Convention in Indianapolis, followed by the legalization of gay marriage

in Maryland, which joined the District of Columbia. The national church made a special allowance for marriage ceremonies in states where gay marriage is legal. Longtime same-sex marriage advocate the Very Rev. Gary Hall took over as the cathedral’s dean in October. Conversations began even before he arrived to clear the way for the ceremonies at the church that so often serves as a symbolic house of prayer for national celebrations and tragedies. The Episcopal bishop of Washington, the Rt. Rev. Mariann Edgar Budde, authorized use of the new mar-

riage rite in December for 89 congregations in D.C. and Maryland. Each priest then decides whether to marry same-sex couples. The cathedral’s congregation and leadership include many gays and lesbians. The church was just waiting for the right moment and the right leader. “This was something that was brewing in the cathedral. We were really waiting for him,” Budde told The Associated Press. “It would have been inconceivable for the Cathedral to call somebody who was not in favor of full equality for gay and lesbian people.”

Advocates optimistic president committed to effort • BIDEN

Continued from page A1 The tragedy in Newtown, in which 20 young children and six adults were gunned down by a man with a military-style semiautomatic rifle, has prodded the administration to act. Obama had remained largely silent on gun control after the 2011 shootings in Tucson, Ariz., that killed six people and wounded 12 others including then-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, and the Colorado movie theater killing of a dozen people and wounding of many more last July. Connecticut is moving cautiously on gun control, but Gov. Andrew Cuomo in neighboring New York proposed a wide-ranging package of restrictions Wednesday. He called for loopholes to be closed in a New York ban on assault weapons and ammunition magazines that carry more than 10 bullets. The Democrat also wants to require holders of handgun licenses to undergo followups to make sure they are still qualified to possess a weapon, and he is calling for increased sentences for certain gun crimes. Biden, referring to the Newtown shootings, said at

the White House: “Every once in a while, there’s something that awakens the conscience of the country, and that tragic event did it in a way like nothing I’ve seen in my career.” “The president and I are determined to take action. ... We can affect the well-being of millions of Americans and take thousands of people out of harm’s way if we act responsibly.” Biden said the administration is weighing executive action in addition to recommending legislation by Congress. Recommendations to the Biden group include making gun-trafficking a felony, getting the Justice Department to prosecute people caught lying on gun background-check forms and ordering federal agencies to send data to the National Gun Background Check Database. Some of those pieces could happen by executive action, but congressional say-so would be needed for more farreaching changes such as reinstating the ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines. Congress let the ban expire in 2004 under heavy pressure from the NRA. Democrats blamed a backlash against some lawmakers who voted for its enactment

10 years earlier for steep election losses that year. Since then Democrats have been wary of legislating on guns, and efforts have fizzled in Congress. Already there are signs any new legislative effort by Obama could face tough going. Some progun Democrats have voiced doubts, and the Senate’s top Republican has warned it could be spring before Congress begins considering any gun legislation. Obama has said that his efforts on guns can be successful only if he has the support of the public, and advocates who attended Wednesday’s Biden meeting said part of the White House message was for participants to spread the word and keep up pressure on Washington. “They have made clear that they’re in this for the long haul and they want us to be in this for the long haul,” said Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. Advocatesparticipatingin Wednesday’s meeting, some of whom have been critical of Obama’s silence on guns in the past, said they were optimistic that the president and Biden are committed to the effort this time around. “I think it’s for real,” said Shira Goodman, executive director of CeaseFirePA.

Republican David McSweeney, who lost a 2006 congressional race to unseat former Democratic U.S. Rep. Melissa Bean, was sworn into the House, as was GOP incumbent Tim Schmitz of Batavia, whose district now includes a sliver of south central McHenry County under the new maps. Wheeler said she is encouraged by the amount of new blood in the House and said it could mean real and lasting solutions to the state’s problems. “What really excites me is there is such a large number of new General Assembly members coming on board, and I believe they’re just as motivated, and willing to be bold and creative,” Wheeler said. The county’s representatives are unanimous in their desire to fix the pension system, as well as ensure that the “temporary” income-tax increase stays that way despite the state’s deepening fiscal woes. The 2011 increase – 67 percent on individuals and 46 percent on businesses – is scheduled to start phasing out in 2015. McSweeney on his first day filed legislation to repeal the tax increase effective immediately. “It might be a novel concept for many here in the General Assembly, but I came here to do what I said I was going to do. These tax increases have devastated hardworking families and job-creating small businesses, and I will be pushing hard for its expiration,” McSweeney said. Both houses voted along party lines in re-electing their leaders. Democrats elected House Speaker Michael Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton. Republicans voted for House Minority Leader Tom Cross and Senate Minority Leader Christine Radogno. The Democratic Party, which controlled both houses and the governor’s office in the last General Assembly, has added to its gains by

Madigan vote Michael Madigan, D-Chicago, was elected House speaker once again. The vote was along party lines with state Rep. Jack Franks, D-Marengo, voting for Madigan while all area Republicans voted for House Minority Leader Tom Cross, R-Oswego.

securing veto-proof majorities in both the House and Senate, in part because of the new maps. Democrats took advantage of their control during redistricting, which is required after every decennial U.S. Census to adjust for population shifts and ensure equal representation. They drafted state and congressional maps advantageous to their party without the need for Republican votes, and all three maps survived GOP court challenges. Only two of the eight Springfield legislators now representing the county – Duffy and McSweeney – faced contested races in November. McConnaughay faced a challenger in the Republican primary but won the seat unopposed. Three state lawmakers won their races but face problems with the law. The House expelled Rep. Derrick Smith in August after he was indicted on federal bribery charges, but voters re-elected him. Federal investigators in November brought bank fraud charges against LaShawn Ford. State Sen. Donne Trotter faces a felony charge from a December incident in which he tried to board a plane at O’Hare International Airport with a gun in his luggage.

Jennings also will launch a new T-shirt at the event. Shirts, which will cost $25, feature Jennings intercepting a pass over the Chicago skyline and say “The Hawk.” Profits from shirt sales will go to the family, Jett said.

Fox Lake scratches chickens By EMILY K. COLEMAN

ecoleman@shawmedia.com FOX LAKE – Fox Lake is the latest in a series of area communities to say “no” to chickens. The Fox Lake Village Board in a 4-2 decision voted down a proposed ordinance that would have allowed residents living on plots zoned singlefamily residential to raise chickens if they obtained a permit. People on less than an acre would have been allowed a maximum of four hens, and those on larger lots could have had eight. Fox Lake joins Mundelein, Crystal Lake, McHenry and Lake in the Hills in rejecting chickens. Other communities, though, have said “yes,” including Chicago, Evanston, Long

“I didn’t see anything wrong with it. They addressed all the issues of noise, smell and predators.” Donny Schmit Fox Lake trustee

Grove and West Dundee. Crystal Lake Mayor Aaron Shepley wrote to a resident that the city’s decision to against allowing hens came down “what the people of Crystal Lake want this town to be like.” He cited to a lesser degree the possibility of attracting predators and rodents and a potential odor issue. Planning and zoning commission-

ers in McHenry worried that chickens weren’t conducive to urban settings. In Fox Lake, Trustees Donny Schmit and Greg Murrey were the two “yes” votes to allow chickens. “I didn’t see anything wrong with it,” Schmit said. “They addressed all the issues of noise, smell and predators.” The Plan Commission held several meetings on the subject and brought in experts from communities that allow chickens before recommending the ordinance to the board in a 3-1 vote. Allowing chickens had been proposed by Andrew Watson of Fox Lake, an Eagle Scout with Boy Scout Troop 274 in Lake Villa. His family would like to raise the hens

for their eggs, according to meeting minutes. The proposed ordinance would have required the hens to be kept in a fenced enclosure with a minimum of two square feet per chicken. It required that coops be at least 25 feet from neighbors’ homes. Neither the hens nor the eggs could have been sold, and the hens could not be slaughtered on the property. The guidelines are similar to the ones considered elsewhere. The proposed ordinance prohibited chickens in multifamily complexes, including duplexes, and banned roosters in residential areas. Currently, chickens are allowed only in lots zoned for agricultural use, Building Commissioner Frank Urbina said.

HEBRON – A dryer caught fire, and it spread to the house at 10818 Button Road, according to the Hebron-Alden-Greenwood Fire Protection District. Linda Ogle was drying towels about 6:50 p.m. when she heard a noise coming from the dryer. She found the light bulb had popped out. She tried putting it back in, which led to a spark that got into the lint trap, Ogle said. When crews arrived, there was moderate smoke coming from the house, said Assistant Chief Tom Linneman. The fire was under control in about 30 minutes. Six people and the family’s two dogs were displaced from the log-framed house, and they planned to stay with relatives. No injuries were reported, “We’ll be OK,” Ogle said. “The best thing is everyone is OK.” Because there are no hydrants in the area, the fire district called for help from several departments.

LAKE IN THE HILLS – The county has plans to build a 110-space parking lot at the reconfigured Route 31 and Virginia Road intersection. The planned park-andride facility on the southwestern corner would be a place for people to park and meet to carpool. It will have 105 regular spaces and five handicap spaces. A study by the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning showed a need for a lot of that size and purpose, said Dan Olson, Lake in the Hills community development director. But to meet stormwater requirements and have enough parking spaces to make the project work, the county needs a variance from the minimum 30-foot setback required under village zoning rules. It is asking for an 8-foot setback from Virginia Road and Route 31, which still allows for landscaping, Olson wrote. Without the variances, the county would be able to put in only 34 spaces, which is too few to benefit the public, according to village documents. The Village Board is scheduled to vote on the proposed project at its meeting tonight. Wally Dittrich, the design manager for the McHenry County Division of Transportation, said the county received a $1 million grant to design and construct the parking lot. If approved, construction will be in summer and take a couple of months, Dittrich said.

Man rejects prosecutors’ offer of two years on escape charges By saraH sUTsCHeK

ssutschek@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – A man accused of escaping the back of a squad car while handcuffed and then eluding capture for 12 hours has rejected prosecutors’ offer of two years in prison. James R. Henson, 45, has

been in the McHenry County Jail since his arrest in October 2011 after a property owner called in a trespassing complaint. While in the back of a McHenry County sheriff’s car, Henson allegedly kicked out a window and escaped. He eluded capture for more than 12 hours

before he was found in a wooded area. Assistant State’s Attorney David Metnick said the offer of two years will be on the table until Jan. 25. There may not be another offer in the case, he said. Henson’s attorney, special public defender Bill Bligh, said he is seeking additional

information about the case, and said he and his client are somewhat prejudiced by the fact that they still are in the fact-finding phase. About eight months before the escape case, a jury found Henson not guilty of burglarizing a Crystal Lake church. A can of Busch Light beer found at the scene had

his DNA on it. Henson has a lengthy criminal history. His past convictions in McHenry, Kane and Lake counties include burglary, forgery, criminal damage to property and possession of a stolen vehicle. Henson’s next court date on escape charges is Friday.

Village to consider Walgreens plan By EMILy k. COLEMAN

ecoleman@shawmedia.com LAKEMOOR – Walgreens’ plan for the southeast corner of Darrell Road and Route 120 would help Lakemoor meet its goal of a walkable commercial district, the village administrator said. The Lakemoor Village Board tonight will look at the development application approved by the Zoning Board of Appeals in December. Walgreens’ plan is to demolish the building that currently houses Lakemoor Liquors and build a drugstore with a drive-thru pharmacy. The liquor store’s lease is up in March, Village Administrator David Alarcon said. Walgreens seeks permis-

If you go

sion to put up two freestanding signs and have a drivethru pharmacy. Its plan, which has been two years in the making, would split the property into three lots, two of which wouldn’t meet the 200foot width requirement for C-5, or commercial highway, zoning. The nonconforming shouldn’t be a problem, said Public Works Superintendent Charlie Schmidt. The lot to the south of Wal-

greens will be used only for storm water detention, and the second lot will be left undeveloped for now, he said. Even if the second lot is developed, there shouldn’t be an issue because any business would share an entrance with Walgreens. The request for a variance on the width is “not uncommon,” Schmidt said. If the board approves the application, the village still must work out landscaping enhancements and other minor engineering issues, Alarcon said. “The reason why this is so nice is it not only brings retail to Lakemoor, it’s another piece in our puzzle by linking up our village with sidewalks,” Alarcon said.

The ultimate goal is to run a bike and pedestrian trail along Darrell Road from Lakemoor Farms to Route 120. A segment will break off and run south of Heritage Park to Eastlake Drive and follow Riverside Drive behind the businesses on Route 120. The path would cross Route 120 at Willow Road and head into Morrison Park. The plan also includes connecting up The Pines of Lakemoor subdivision. The village has been working with Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning on an updated comprehensive plan. The board has looking at ways, including the possibility of a tax increment financing district, to revitalize the Route 120 commercial corridor.

WOODSTOCk: THE LAND CONSERvANCy Of McHENRy COuNTy

TLC to honor teachers committed to oaks NORTHWEST HERALD WOODSTOCK – The Land Conservancy of McHenry County will recognize local teachers Bill Donato and Beth Theiss with Living with Trees Awards at its annual celebration and brunch Jan. 27. Donato, a Woodstock High School science teacher, has led students in a multiyear effort to restore the city of Woodstock’s Gerry Street Park, two blocks from the school’s South Street Campus. The restoration work has removed invasive species from around native oak trees and created a hiking trail through much of the 30-acre property. Donato’s efforts raise awareness among

the younger generation of the need for restoration of natural lands and the benefits of nature for people. Theiss, a Hannah Beardsley Middle School seventhgrade science teacher, approached TLC in 2010 to discuss ways she might incorporate projects related to the area’s native oak trees into science curriculum. Theiss worked with school administrators and the other science teachers to create a three-part program that includes acorn collection and classification in the fall, propagation of trees from the collected acorns over a two-year period, and planting of native oaks at Three Oaks Recreation Area in the spring. The program began

in fall 2011, and through the hands-on activities and classroom learning, students are gaining knowledge of the importance of oak trees to the area’s landscape and history. The TLC program will be at 11 a.m. Jan 27 at D’Andrea Banquets in Crystal Lake. Brunch runs until 12:30 p.m., when the awards will be presented. The program also includes a presentation by Jim Pfitzer, acclaimed storyteller, who will present “Aldo Leopold: A Standard of Change” at 1 p.m. Tickets are $35 for members and $50 for nonmembers, and can be bought online at www.ConserveMC.org or by calling 815-337-9502.

Continued from page B1 “There’s many times where we would have been dead in our tracks or at least slowed down if not for the help of genuinely kind strangers,” Aaron Cooper said. The Woodstock brothers returned last month from what was to be a trip to Tierra del Fuego, Argentina, the southern tip of South America. Their journey ended early in Colombia, in the northwest part of continent, because of the broken leg Nathan suffered in a crash there. Aaron Cooper, 30, had finished a 10-year career in the military and was taking classes at McHenry County College when he thought up the trip. Nathan, 25, had just completed a year of teaching English in Vietnam. They share a sense of adventure and a love of travel, and set off in early September on their

Aaron and Nathan Cooper documented their journey in detail through photos, video and blog posts. Visit www.endurobros.com to learn about their trip. enduro motorcycles – racing motorcycles generally used for long trips over rugged terrain. The trip had its share of challenges. Long hours on the road were taxing. And while the brothers had booked stays at nicer resorts, other nights were spent in shakier quarters – or none at all. More than once, the two caught rest on the side of the road. “There was one day where we rode all day, 20-something hours,” Nathan Cooper said. “We pulled over – ‘Welp, it’s about an hour until the sun comes up. We can sleep for maybe 45 minutes. We’re not going to be falling asleep when it’s sunny.’ ” At times, “I was waking up

riding off-road,” he said. But the goodness of people continued to shine. When Nathan’s bike broke down on the Baja California peninsula in Mexico, the two sought financial help and received it. Donations came from people they knew around Woodstock and from their travels. Strangers who’d read about their trip kicked in, as well. The brothers kept going. In Colombia, riding in the darkness two hours north of Ecuador, admittedly exhausted to a point of delirium, Nathan Cooper lost control and laid down his bike on his left leg, breaking his tibia and fibula and tearing a tendon. The two made it to the nearest home, where a Co-

lombian family made room for Nathan’s bike by carrying the table they’d just eaten on outside. Aaron Cooper drove his brother an hour to a hospital, where he had surgery. A few days later, the brothers boarded a flight back to the United States. They said they plan to make it back to Colombia, where their bikes await, later this year. The brothers said they had wanted to make service a larger part of the trip than they did because of time constraints. But when they go back, they’ll have more time and said they’d like to use some of that time for charity work. “We’re trying to look at the silver lining in this whole thing,” Nathan Cooper said. “Yeah, I broke my leg and we didn’t get to follow through on the promise of, in one stretch, doing this. But it’s more of a part one, and part two will be coming up.”

Continued from page B1 He said carpooling occurs in the county, with people meeting in parking lots of shopping centers. This a “way to give a formal safe place to leave their cars,” Dittrich said. Dittrich said the CMAP

study found that people from Cary, Lake in the Hills, Algonquin and Crystal Lake carpool to work in the Schaumburg area. Currently, there is no plan to limit time on the parking lot, and there would be no charge to use it, Dittrich said. Village Trustee Stephen Harlfinger wondered whether

a park-and-ride is the best use of the site. “Are we taking away a piece of commercial property for the future?” he asked. Olson said the property is county-owned right-of-way. Village President Ed Plaza said the lot would relieve road congestion. “With the bypass going in, with the amount of traffic ev-

erybody sees going from north to south and back ... anyway to get traffic off the road is fine,” Plaza said. The design includes an area for a gazebo or shelter and an area for buses to turn around if PACE decides to add a stop in the area. “Ultimately, that will be a marketing tool to get them to come in,” Plaza said.

rita s. graff

born: Nov. 29, 1927; in Chicago Died: Jan. 9, 2013 WOODSTOCK – Rita S. Graff, 85, of Woodstock, died peacefully of respiratory complications Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2013. Mrs. Graff was born in Chicago to Frank and Eleanor (Jaszkowski) Gurtowski on Nov. 29, 1927. She spent her childhood in Chicago alongside her brother, Leonard (deceased), and four sisters, Mildred (deceased), Marie (deceased), Leona (deceased) and Dolores. After graduating from Steinmetz High School in 1945, Rita worked for A.E. Nielson. In 1946, after World War II, she met former United States Marine Corps Pvt. Al (Alois) Graff at George’s, the neighborhood bar and social club. They were married April 19, 1947, and began their 61-year journey together, raising their seven children and caring for their menagerie of pets, including Betsy (the dog), Maddish (the pig), Frank (the raccoon), Woolie (the sheep), and other assorted strays. Rita always considered herself a “domestic engineer” and took great pride and joy in her home and family. In addition to working in the home, she always found time to volunteer in her community and help out friends, loved ones and strangers. Rita was a life member of the Wonder Lake Woman’s Club. There always was room in Rita’s heart for someone needing help. In 1993, she was honored by the Illinois Alliance for Aging with the Illinois State Treasures Award for being a “legendary personal care assistant to the disabled, the ill and the dying.” She responded to the award, which was presented to her in the grand ballroom of the leg-

endary Drake Hotel in Chicago, with her usual good humor and humility: “I ordered new teeth,” she said. “This award is costing me $1,000.” In her usual can-do style, Rita helped her daughter, Denise, at the launch of The Woodstock Independent with her group of friends, known as “The Label Ladies.” She also volunteered her time at Greenwood School in Greenwood and for 27 years did the church wash for Christ the King Church in Wonder Lake, joking, “Every piece I iron gets me closer to heaven.” No job was too big or small for Rita to tackle. She just loved giving in her simple way. After raising their family and spending 70 winters in the Midwest, Rita and Al retired to Lecanto, Fla., in 1997, where they enjoyed golfing and socializing with their neighbors at the community clubhouse. She continued to volunteer at St. Scholastica Catholic Church and in her community. Rita is survived by her seven children, Karin (Jim) McGrath of St. Petersburg, Fa., Jerry (Judy) of Wonder Lake, Susan Larson of Redwood City, Calif., Ken (Jo) of Wonder Lake, Dan of Dunedin, Fla., Denise (Jim) Graff Ponstein of Woodstock and Russ (Holly) of Capron; 12 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. The grandchildren include Missy (Charlie) Klimkowski of Ringwood, Derek (Bonnie) Graff of Wonder Lake, Chance McGrath of St. Petersburg, Fla., Jarret (Stacy) Graff of Wonder Lake, Justin McGrath of North Hollywood, Calif., Travis (Ashleigh) of Springfield, Nicki (Martin) Boswell of Pewaukee, Wis., Morgan McGrath of Cincinnati, Danny (Lindsay) Graff of Woodstock, Jacob Graff Ponstein of Woodstock and Reaganne and Addison Graff of Capron. The 12 great-grandchildren include Bella Biwer, Grace Graff, Abby Klimkowski, Gretchen Graff, Lucy Rose Klimkowski, Jack McGrath, Zoe McGrath, Griffin Graff, Eddy Klimkowski, Kenzie Graff, Keasen Graff and Addie Graff. She was preceded in death by her husband, Al, of Lecanto, Fla.; and grandson. Brandon Ware of Bradenton, Fla. The family invites relatives and friends to join them in celebrating her life from 4 to 8 p.m. Friday, Jan 11, at SchneiderLeucht-Merwin & Cooney Funeral Home, 1211 N. Seminary Ave., Woodstock. The visitation will continue at 10 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 12, at St. Mary Catholic Church, 312 Lincoln Ave., Woodstock. The funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11 a.m., followed by a luncheon in the church hall. Interment will be in Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell, Fla.

than a month left. You have little lulls. If you play with heart and discipline, that can cover your mistakes.” South (15-4 overall, 3-1 FVC Valley) had some mistakes too, but the fullcourt zone pressure sparked a 13-0 run through the third and fourth quarters. Carly Nolan scored three baskets in the third quarter and Sara Mickow had two more in the fourth. “The first half was kind of rough,” Gators forward Chanel Fanter said. “It was great to get that momentum up in the third and that kept us going.” Mickow led South with 16 points and 16 rebounds. Fanter added 10 points and hit the Gators’ only 3-pointer in the third quarter. Jacobs (1-19, 1-4) trailed only 26-21 at halftime with eight points from Tori Tamburrino. The Golden Eagles got a 3 from Payton Berg in the third quarter and a free throw from Tamburrino in the fourth for their only second-half points.

Tory Dello recently got a little taste of what hockey will look like next year. The Crystal Lake Central sophomore was tendered a contract by the USHL’s Tri-City Storm and played three games with the team in late December. Dello, a 15-year-old defenseman, was the first player born in 1997 to play in the USHL this season. He plans on returning to Kearney, Neb., later this Tory Dello season and then playing with the Storm fulltime in the 2013-14 season. “It was a really good experience,” Dello said. “I played pretty well. It was good, so I know what to expect next year. The speed of the game was the biggest thing. That, and playing against kids who are bigger and stronger.” The USHL is considered the top junior hockey league in the U.S., one that takes players up to the age of 20. Dello will get two years of USHL play before he plans to attend Notre Dame, to which he committed a year ago. “He thought this would help him prepare for Notre Dame,” said Marty Dello, Tory’s father. “He wanted to play against older kids. Guys who are bigger, faster and stronger will give him a chance to raise his game. He really had a chance to see the lifestyle while he was out there.” Tory Dello (6-foot, 180 pounds) stayed with a host family who he will stay with next year, too. He will leave in August to attend high school and later start the season with the Storm. He will finish his current season with the Chicago Mission 16U team and could rejoin the Storm for the USHL playoffs, depending on how the seasons develop. Dello was drafted in May by the Chicago Steel, who owned his draft rights until October. When he did not sign, he was available again to any USHL team. When the Storm played Cedar Rapids, Dello competed against an old friend, Jack Rowe, a forward from Cary who plays with the RoughRiders.

THEY WROTE IT From Jeff MacGregor ESPN.com

In America we are what we do. Our work defines us. So what does it mean to be a farmer? What does it mean to be a nurse, a schoolteacher, a machinist? What does it mean to be a football player or a football Robert coach? Griffin III You take the job and you take your chances. On the sad, unsurprising news Wednesday of Robert Griffin III’s knee surgery, we’re reminded of the truth that football players will do what football players do. And that football coaches behave as football coaches. As do football’s owners and football’s writers. We adopt the code and the culture of the work we do. Become an accountant and one day you’ll think as an accountant. Become a software engineer and you’ll speak as a software engineer. Become a quarterback and you’ll see the world through a quarterback’s eyes, and find solutions to its troubles only in running and jumping and throwing. All in the name of the work. What risks do we take? What limits do we set? What sacrifices do we make for ourselves and our families? For glory or for vanity? For money? There are more questions than answers when it comes to what our work means. There are plenty of jobs more dangerous than quarterback. And which pay 1/100th as much.

BUCKS 104, BUllS 96

Boylan moves to 2-0 with Bucks The ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHICAGO – Brandon Jennings stretched out his arms and held his hands just over the ground as he glided toward center court, celebrating another big 3-pointer with one of Nate Robinson’s usual moves. Yup, Jennings was listening to Robinson’s trash talk, and he had the perfect response. The speedy point guard scored 20 of his 35 points in the third quarter, and the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Bulls 104-96 on Wednesday night for their

second consecutive victory under interim coach Jim Boylan. Robinson scored 13 of his 19 points in the first period, but was unable to stop Jennings once he got going in the third. “A little trash talking before the second half,” Jennings said. “I guess he felt like he had it going, he was getting the best of me.

INDIANAPOLIS – The agent for Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians said Wednesday night that his client has been released from an Indianapolis hospital and that they are finalizing details to begin interviewing for head coaching jobs. Earlier in the day, a league source familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that doctors still were trying to determine the extent of a health problem that forced one interview to be pushed back. The person spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity because details of Arians’ illness have not been made public by the team. Mike Brown, Arians’ agent, denied there had been any change to Arians’ schedule. Arians, a 60-year-old prostate cancer survivor, has been complaining of dizziness and migraine headaches, conditions doctors believe is related to an inner-ear infection, the person told the AP.

Illini comeback falls short Next up

By DAVID MERCER The Associated Press

CHAMPAIGN – Joe Coleman scored 29 points and Andre Hollins added 22 to help No. 8 Minnesota top No. 12 Illinois on Wednesday 84-67 and remain undefeated in the Big Ten. The Gophers (15-1, 3-0 Big Ten) held off a charge by the 12th-ranked Illini midway through the second half. Joseph Bertrand pulled Illinois within 44-42 on a short jumper with 12:37 left. But the physical matchup took its toll on the Illini (14-3, 1-2). And as Illinois piled up fouls, Trevor Mbakwe connected on layup with 6:15 to play for a 62-49 lead that Illinois couldn’t overcome. Mbakwe added 19 points and 11 rebounds. Brandon Paul led Illinois with 21 points. D.J. Richardson and Tracy Abrams each scored 14. After leading 34-30 at the half, the Gophers used a 50-point second half to surge to the win. It started with an early 8-2 run that pushed the lead to 42-32. While the Gophers were mostly plod-

at Wisconsin, 1:15 p.m. Saturday, BTN, AM-560

ding through the second half’s first five minutes, Illinois struggled even more. The Illini missed their first seven shots of the half and saw their shooting rate for the game drop briefly below 22 percent. They finished at just 34.5 percent and 12.5 percent from 3-point range. At one point, with the shot clock ticking low, the Gophers fumbled with the ball and almost lost it near half court. Hollins finally scooped it up and heaved a desperate shot from halfcourt as the shot clock almost expired. The ball gently slid off the glass and in for a 3-pointer that made the score 42-30. Illinois fought back within 44-42 with 9:37 to play when Bertrand pulled down a big defensive rebound, dribbled the length of the court and connected on a jump shot from inside the paint.

The crowd rose with the shot, sensing a comeback. But just as quickly as Illinois got back into the game, it fell back out. Less than a minute after his shot and with Illinois down 46-42, Bertrand headed to the bench with his fourth foul. Hollins made his free throws to put Minnesota back up by six, 48-42 with 11:54 to play. Ten seconds later he hit a 3-pointer that extended that lead to 51-42. Abrams, Bertrand and Nnanna Egwu each finished with four fouls, and Abrams and Bertrand both picked up theirs with more than nine minutes left in the game. The physical tone was set early. Paul went over Mbakwe just over three minutes into the game for a flying, right-handed dunk that left the Gopher forward on the floor. Less than a minute later, Paul had to leave the floor, cupping a hand under a bloody nose after a foul by Austin Hollins. The senior guard spent the next five minutes on the bench with an ice pack on his nose and, finally, in the locker room.

MEN’S BASKETBAll TOP 25 ROUNDUP

Michigan remains undefeated The ASSOCIATED PRESS ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Glenn Robinson III had 14 points, including a pair of crucial dunks in the second half, and No. 2 Michigan equaled its best start to a season with a 62-47 victory over Nebraska on Wednesday night. The Wolverines (16-0, 3-0 Big Ten) overcame their shakiest shooting performance in a while, holding the lead for the entire second half. The only other Michigan team to start 16-0 was the 1985-86 squad that went on to win the Big Ten title. Ray Gallegos scored 19 points for Nebraska (9-7, 0-3), which held the Wolverines to 39 percent shooting. No. 3 Louisville, 73, Seton Hall 58: At Newark, N.J., Gorgui Dieng had 16 points and 14 rebounds – both season highs – to lead the Cardinals to their ninth straight win. Freshman Montrezl Harrell, starting in place of injured Chane Behanan, tied his career best with 14 points, and Luke Hancock hit two 3-pointers in a late, gamebreaking 12-2 run that gave the Cardinals (14-1, 2-0 Big East) the win. Brandon Mobley had 18 points and seven rebounds for the Pirates (12-4, 1-2). No. 6 Kansas 97, Iowa St. 89 (OT): At Lawrence, Kan., freshman Ben McLemore had a career-high 33 points, including a tying 3-pointer with a second left in regulation,

and the Jayhawks rallied to beat the Cyclones. McLemore was 10 of 12 from the field and perfect on six 3-pointers for the Jayhawks (13-1, 1-0 Big 12). Iowa State (10-4, 0-1) poured in 14 3-pointers, and had forged a 79-76 lead with 8.4 seconds left in regulation. No. 7 Syracuse 72, Providence 66: At Providence, R.I., C.J. Fair scored 23 with 11 rebounds, and Michael Carter-Williams scored 17 with six assists and the Orange rallied from a nine-point, first-half deficit to beat the Friars. Rakeem Christmas scored 15 with eight rebounds for the Orange (15-1, 3-0 Big East). Bryce Cotton scored 24 for Providence (8-7, 0-3). No. 11 Florida 77, Georgia 44: At Gainesville, Fla., Mike Rosario scored 19 points, Erik Murphy added 11 despite playing with a broken rib and the Gators opened Southeastern Conference play with a victory over the Bulldogs. The latest one was no big surprise since the Gators (11-2) have played well most of the season while Georgia (6-8) has struggled against just about everyone on its schedule. No. 14 Butler 72, Saint Joseph’s 66: At Philadelphia, Rotnei Clarke scored 28 points and Andrew Smith had 24 points and 10

rebounds to lead the Bulldogs over the Hawks. Clarke made six 3-pointers to help the Bulldogs (13-2, 1-0 Atlantic 10) win their 10th straight game. Butler made its A-10 debut after leaving the Horizon League. Chris Wilson scored 15 points, and Ronald Roberts Jr. had 12 points and nine rebounds for the Hawks (8-5, 0-1).

No. 20 N.C. State 83, Georgia Tech 70:

At Raleigh, N.C., Lorenzo Brown had 21 points and 10 assists and the Wolfpack pulled away late to beat the Yellow Jackets for their ninth straight win. Scott Wood added 20 points and C.J. Leslie had 19 in his 11th straight game in double figures for the Wolfpack (13-2, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference). Robert Carter Jr. had 15 points and 10 rebounds for the Yellow Jackets (10-4, 0-2).

CHICAGO – By the end of the first half Wednesday, Nate Robinson had racked up 13 points and dished countless words against Milwaukee Bucks guard Brandon Jennings. That’s when Jennings decided that enough was enough. “I didn’t take it kindly,” Jennings said after the Bucks’ 10496 win at the United Center. “I warned him about it, and then I got ticked off at halftime and just attacked from the start.” Jennings finished the game with 35 points, including 25 in the second half. Robinson finished with 19 points, including six points on 3-for-11 shooting in the second half. Robinson downplayed his personal battle with Jennings, who posed after several 3-pointers and extended his arms as if he were a low-flying plane. “That’s just part of the game,” Robinson said. “Nobody wants to get scored on. But it’s a team game. You can’t get caught up in playing one on one.” On the map: The Bulls could add Seattle to their list of travel destinations next season. The Sacramento Kings could be sold to an ownership group that would move the team to Seattle, according to a Yahoo Sports report. The move could take place as soon as the 2013-14 season. Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau was as a scout for the Seattle SuperSonics during the 199192 season. “It’s a great basketball city,” Thibodeau said. “I don’t want to speculate on a team being sold until it happens, but Seattle itself is a great city. “It would be great for the league. Hopefully, at some point, there will be a team there again.” Not finished: Jim Boylan served as the Bucks’ interim coach for the second consecutive game in place of Scott Skiles, who parted ways with the team this week after five seasons. Boylan said he believed Skiles would coach again in the NBA. Skiles has compiled a 443-433 record in parts of 13 seasons as a coach, including a stint with the Bulls from 2003 to 2007. “I just think Scott is meant to be a coach,” Boylan said. “He loves it. There are teams out there that can use a guy that can come in and give them some structure.”

No. 23, Wichita St. 82, Southern Illinois 76:

At Wichita, Kan., Cleanthony Early scored 39 points to help Wichita State beat Southern Illinois, two days after the Shockers jumped back into the poll. Wichita State (15-1, 4-0 Missouri Valley) needed everything Early could do as Southern Illinois rode a hot-shooting first half to keep it close into the final minute. Desmar Jackson scored 28 points and Anthony Beane added 14 for the Salukis (7-8, 0-4).

8INSIDE GIRLS BASKETBALL Athlete of the Week SARA MICKOW Crystal Lake South, jr., forward Mickow is doing her best to keep the Gators in contention for the Fox Valley Conference Valley Division title. She scored a game-high 14 points, including seven in the final two minutes, during South’s comeback win Friday at Prairie Ridge and added 16 points and 16 rebounds in Wednesday’s win against Prairie Ridge, the Gators’ eighth-straight win. The 5-foot-11 junior also scored 18 points in the South’s win Saturday against Mundelein.

Noteworthy

Marengo battles in BNC: The Indians’ boast one of the best allaround players in the Big Northern Conference, senior Jessica Villie, but the lack of a second scoring threat has hurt Marengo. Marengo picked up a big win at home Tuesday against BNC East Division foe Richmond-Burton, securing a 49-43 win thanks to Villie’s 19 points and the performance of senior guard Sabrina Marsh, who scored 17 points and was given the tough task of guarding Rockets’ go-to scorer Alex Callanan. “I’d say that’s definitely our biggest win in conference so far this season,” Marengo coach Nick Rode said. “I’m hoping that kind of lights a fire under us and help us believe in ourselves even more just going down the homestretch with a lot of conference games remaining.” At 3-2 in the BNC East, the Indians will have to catch Burlington Central, which is undefeated in conference play. If Marsh or one of her teammates can become a consistent scoring threat alongside Villie, Marengo can be a dangerous team in the BNC East. Fenton playing through injury: Prairie Ridge senior guard Bri Fenton suffered a broken nose and broken bone in her face during the Wolves’ loss to Libertyville on Dec. 27. Prairie Ridge coach Rob Baker said Fenton is “very limited” in what she’s able to do, but she has been able to play. Fenton played Friday against South, although Baker held her out of Monday’s blowout win against Marengo. With Fenton and forward Sarah LeBeau back in the lineup, Baker hopes the Wolves can find consistency. “We’re working extremely hard,” Baker said. “We’re playing intense, we’re playing physical. We’re playing good basketball, but we’re just making some mental mistakes at the end of games that are costing us.” Class 4A regional stacked: The IHSA playoff seedings are expected to be announced Jan. 24. However, the regional assignments already have been announced, and one regional is especially tough. The Crystal Lake South Regional in Class 4A features five McHenry County teams in the six-team regional: Cary-Grove, Crystal Lake Central, Crystal Lake South, Prairie Ridge and McHenry. Three of the those teams are within two games of Huntley, who currently is atop the Fox Valley Conference Valley Division. Other notable regionals include the Woodstock Regional in Class 3A, which includes Marengo, Woodstock, Woodstock North, Richmond-Burton and Marian Central and in Class 4A the Streamwood Regional (Jacobs and Dundee-Crown).

GIRLS BASKETBALL: CARY-GROVE 39, DUNDEE-CROWN 18

Trojans nearly fall into trap Nicholson provides 2nd-half spark By PATRICK MASON

pmason@shawmedia.com CARPENTERSVILLE – It seems that the Cary-Grove girls basketball team fell into an all-too-familiar trap – the catch game. The Trojans have a muchanticipated Fox Valley Conference Valley Division game against division-leading Huntley on Saturday and they seemed to overlook Wednesday’s FVC Valley matchup against Dundee-Crown, at least for the first half. “Saturday is going to be a huge game for us,” Joslyn Nicholson said. Nicholson jump-started the Trojans in the second half and finished with 10 points in the Trojans’ 39-18 victory

against the Chargers. “I think we were getting ahead of ourselves because we have been too focused on Saturday,” Nicholson said. “I think against teams like Dundee-Crown, people see the records and always expect us to win even though they play tough every night. And when the pressure is on like that, we tend to get ahead Joslyn of ourselves. Nicholson We try to do things that we shouldn’t be doing and we don’t take care of the ball. We need to hustle more from the beginning and not be lazy.” In the first quarter, the Trojans (11-6 overall, 4-1 FVC Valley) mustered only one point in the and seemingly every shot attempt rolled off the rim or didn’t touch it at all. Including free throws, the Trojans missed their first 12

shot attempts. The opening quarter went like this: Nicholson had three steals but couldn’t connect on the ensuing three layups. Both Olivia Jakubicek and Kaite Barker missed a combined four free throws before Nicholson connected on one for her teams’ only point. Jereneka Baker came off the bench for the Chargers and scored six points on three successive possessions to give her team a 10-9 lead at halftime. In the locker room, Trojans’ coach Andy Donaldson knew he had some changes to make. “Dundee-Crown did a nice job of getting back on those steals in the first half,” said Donaldson, who was taking over for head coach Rod Saffert after Saffert injured his back. “[D-C] gave us some fits; they really played us tough. They always had a couple people on our inside player and when we would get a steal, Dundee-Crown would

be getting right back and they contested a lot of our shots.” The Chargers (2-15, 0-5) came ready to play and coach Michelle Russell was pleased with the way her team defended as it forced 10 turnovers while playing a tough man-toman with high energy. Trojans leading scorer Olivia Jakubicek was held to 12 points by a collective effort from the Chargers. Emilie Michalski – who scored two points – was one of the players whom Donaldson was talking about as the the 6-foot forward defended the basket well. Jakubicek constantly split defenders to get to the rim but Michalski was always there in defense. “We played really, really well defensively,” Russell said. “They put a lot of hard work in tonight, and for us to hold Nicholson and Jakubicek to their totals and their team under 40 points, is great. The girls did a terrific job.”

Dello a ‘big-time get’ for Storm • DELLO

Continued from page C1 “This is a big-time get for us,” Storm general manager-coach Josh Hauge said during the news conference after Dello signed. “We had to go through the process, but this is a huge honor for [Dello] to be the first [1997-born player] to play in the league this season. We want to get guys in here who are good people first. He’s a solid shutdown defenseman with

good offensive ability. We feel he could be an NHL draft pick in the future.” Dello said leaving home will be easier because he has family not far from Kearney. His mother Lisa has a brother and his family, her mother and several cousins who are less than 2 hours away. “I’m like a small-town kid,” Dello said. “I feel really comfortable and I love it here. I want to be the best player I can be when I step in at Notre Dame, and I think this is the place for me to be to do that.”

GIRLS BASKEBALL: PR 48, McHENRY 45

PR stops D’Angelo, Warriors By ANDREW HANSEN

anhansen@shawmedia.com

McHENRY – Rob Baker’s halftime instructions to the Prairie Ridge girl’s basketball team couldn’t have been clearer: Don’t let McHenry guard Laura D’Angelo get the ball. Don’t let D’Angelo score. After D’Angelo scored 13 points in the second quarter; Amanda Hoyland drew the defensive assignment. Hoyland held D’Angelo to three points over the final two quarters, and the Wolves held on for a 48-45 FVC Valley win. “We went into the locker room and there was one focus for five minutes,” Baker said. “How are we going to stop [D’Angelo]? I didn’t want her shooting, and Amanda is good enough to stop her.” D’Angelo was held without a touch in the third quarter, and only got her hands on the ball three times in the fourth quarter. Hoyland said it was a total team defensive effort. “It was a team effort to make sure that no one let [D’Angelo] score,” Hoyland said. “I guarded her, but our whole team knew that we had to get her stopped.” The Wolves (12-6 overall, 2-3 FVC Valley) led by one heading into the fourth, but used the final quarter to separate from the Warriors (10-11, 2-3). Sarah LeBeau hit two 3-pointers to help put Prairie Ridge up by six. Eight of Kelsey Bear’s team-high 12 points came in the fourth, and Bear made two free throws with 25 seconds left in the game to put the Wolves up by five. Bear said that practice has paid off. Recent struggles at the line have made her spend more time on it, and the team has been working on closing out games in practice. “We’ve definitely been practicing the clock running down,” Bear said. “We just needed to come out for four quarters and we did that.” LeBeau and Kelly Klendworth each added nine for the Wolves. McHenry hung tough, cutting the lead to three with 35 seconds left in the game. With the Warriors’ full-court trap on, Alissa Rosga got a steal to find D’Angelo open for a 3. D’Angelo led all scorers with 16 points, and Greta Taylor added eight. The Warriors found something working in the second quarter. McHenry looked to establish the post with Brittany Avonts, which helped open the perimeter for D’Angelo. D’Angelo hit three 3-pointers: the second helped tie the score for the first time and the final gave McHenry it’s first lead. McHenry coach Scott Morris was happy with the effort, but said the first quarter, where McHenry missed three shots from under the hoop, hurt. “We left a lot of points on the floor, that’s been kind of our Achille’s heel,” Morris said. “We’re getting good looks and getting good shots. We just can’t hit those bunnies.”

Bulls fans pleased with how team has fared with Rose sidelined • MUSICK

Continued from page C1 That moment changed everything. The Bulls lost their opening playoff series in six games. More importantly, they lost Rose for 257 days and counting. They also lost several key members of their “Bench Mob” – Omer Asik went to Houston, Kyle Korver to Atlanta, C.J. Watson to Brooklyn, Ronnie Brewer to New York, and so on. Knowing that Rose would miss much of the season, the Bulls filled their bench with lower-priced veterans. The message seemed clear: Keep the seats warm until Rose returns. In came journeymen such as Marco Belinelli, Nate Rob-

inson and Nazr Mohammed. Kirk Hinrich returned, albeit two years older and several steps slower. Yet the Bulls kept winning, spare parts and all. At 19-14, Tom Thibodeau’s team is in good position for a playoff berth. One game separates the Bulls from the first-place Indiana Pacers in the Central Division, and a division title would mean a top-three playoff seed. I could try to tell you more about the new-look Bulls. Instead, I asked some people who have been paying much closer attention. Stadium usher Giselle Lopez has worked (and watched) all but two home games this season. The 19-year-old from Chicago worked Wednesday’s game between Sections 324 and 325 in the upper deck.

It’s not a bad view. From her perch, Lopez has seen the Bulls improve after a rocky start. “At the beginning, it was kind of like, ‘Oh, they don’t know how to play with each other,’ ” Lopez said. “But now they’re more comfortable with each other. “And the fans are being great. They’re always supporting the team.” Eight-year-old Alex Prairie of Bourbonnais arrived early to watch players such as Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson practice jump shots before the game. His dad, Gregg, has tickets for another game in April. “I like to watch them practice,” said Alex Prairie, who watches almost every game on TV. It’s an easy team to watch for fans such as Pete Over-

holt and his son, Max, who celebrated his 23rd birthday Wednesday. The season-ticket holders from Wilmette have watched about a half-dozen games this season from their seats behind the basket in Section 116. As players warmed up before the game, they chatted about how much better Carlos Boozer has played in the past month and how the new bench has developed into a productive unit. Of course, the impending return of Rose never strayed far from the conversation. For the Overholts, watching the Bulls play without their MVP point guard remained strange. “It’s a little weird,” Max Overholt said. “But given what a lot of talking heads were saying – how they were

not going to be quite as good without Rose – overall, I’d say they’ve done pretty well.” Really well. “They have so far exceeded what I thought they would or could do without Rose,” Pete Overholt said. “I’ve enjoyed this season. I really have. It’s been fun.” Before long, it will be a lot more fun. Maybe Rose will return in a month? Maybe six weeks? Whatever the date, it’s getting closer. “Now, everybody’s getting so pumped up,” Lopez said with a big smile. “D-Rose is coming back.”

Change of mind on outdoor show appearances this year

BASEBALL HALL OF FAME

No one voted in Shutout only the 2nd in past 40 years

I knew it, I just knew it. I can try to place the blame for last week’s column on the hustle and bustle of the end of the holiday season, but there really is no excuse that is true. As soon as I turned the column in to my editor, I knew there would be feedback and it wouldn’t be of the backpatting variety. As soon as I hit the “send” key, I was overcome with a feeling of dread that was akin to what I felt when I was a kid and heard my mother’s voice threaten, “Just wait until your father gets home!” I had a feeling that unpleasantness was forthcoming. It certainly came. I had written that I was only attending three outdoor shows this year, All-Canada at Pheasant Run this weekend, the Chicago Outdoor Sports Show on Jan. 23 through 27 at Rosemont and the Great Outdoors Expo in Woodstock in February. The reactions came quickly and they basically said that you readers couldn’t give a hoot which shows I was going to and that it was my job to explain what shows were coming so that you all could make your own decisions. I apologize profusely because you are 100 percent correct. As a matter of fact, I will have to admit that not only is it my job, but I have changed my mind anyway. I am going to attend every single one of the outdoor shows that come to the area. I just can’t keep away from them. Trying to stay away is similar to giving up the dreaded cigarettes I said goodbye to so many years ago. Picking only one show to attend reminds me of trying to take candy from my kids’ Halloween sack when they were little guys. So many varieties. How can you settle on just one or two before they catch dad rifling through the goodies? In addition to All-Canada at Pheasant Run this coming weekend, I’ll be stopping in at the humongous Chicago Boat, Sports and RV Show at McCormick Place i. The Boat Show runs from now through Sunday and details are at chicagoboatshow.com.

By RONALD BLUM The Assocaited Press

NEW YORK – No one was elected to the Hall of Fame this year. When voters closed the doors to Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Sammy Sosa, they also shut out everybody else. For only the second time in four decades, baseball writers failed to give any player the 75 percent required for induction to Cooperstown, sending a powerful signal that stars of the Steroids Era will be held to a different standard. All the awards and accomplishments collected over long careers by Bonds, Clemens and Sosa could not offset suspicions those feats were boosted by performance-enhancing drugs. Voters also denied entry Wednesday to fellow newcomers Craig Biggio, Mike Piazza and Curt Schilling, along with holdovers Jack Morris, Jeff Bagwell and Lee Smith. Among the most honored players of their generation, these standouts won’t find their images among the 300 bronze plaques on the oak walls in Cooperstown, where – at least for now – the doors appear to be bolted shut on anyone tainted by PEDs. “After what has been written and said over the last few years I’m not overly surprised,” Clemens said in a statement he posted on Twitter. Bonds, Clemens and Sosa retired after the 2007 season. They were eligible for the Hall for the first time and have up to 14 more years on the writers’ ballot. “Curt Schilling made a good point, everyone was guilty. Either you used PEDs, or you did nothing to stop their use,” Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt said in an email to The Associated Press after this year’s vote was announced. “This generation got rich. Seems there was a price to pay.” Biggio, 20th on the career list with 3,060 hits, appeared on 68.2 percent of the 569 ballots, the highest total but 39 votes shy. The three newcomers with the highest profiles failed to come close to even majority support, with Clemens at 37.6 percent, Bonds at 36.2 and Sosa at 12.5.

With the cloud of steroids shrouding many candidacies, including Barry Bonds, baseball writers failed for the only the second time in more than four decades to elect anyone to the Hall of Fame on Wednesday. Other top vote-getters were Morris (67.7), Jeff Bagwell (59.6), Piazza (57.8), Tim Raines (52.2), Lee Smith (47.8) and Schilling (38.8). “I’m kind of glad that nobody got in this year,” Hall of Famer Al Kaline said. “I feel honored to be in the Hall of Fame. And I would’ve felt a little uneasy sitting up there on the stage, listening to some of these new guys talk about how great they were. ... I don’t know how great some of these players up for election would’ve been without drugs. But to me, it’s cheating.” At ceremonies in Cooperstown on July 28, the only inductees will be three men who died more than 70 years ago: Yankees owner Jacob Ruppert, umpire Hank O’Day and barehanded catcher Deacon White. They were chosen last month by the 16-member panel considering individuals from the era before integration in 1947. “It is a dark day,” said Jose Canseco, the former AL MVP who was among the first players to admit using steroids. “I think the players should organize some type of lawsuit against major league baseball or the writers. It’s ridiculous. Most of these players really have no evidence against them. They’ve never tested positive or they’ve cleared themselves like Roger Clemens.”

Voters shouldn’t decide who juiced • jacobson

Continued from page C1

For many, the next few Hall of Fame votes will be about Bonds, Roger Clemens, Rafael Palmeiro and Mark McGwire, all-time greats from the “Steroid Era” who were connected to performance-enhancing drugs. In my mind, they will say more about what the voters have decided about their contemporaries – those who apparently are being punished only because they played during the same drug-infused era and are merely suspected of steroid use. Piazza and former Houston Astros first baseman Jeff Bagwell are obvious Hall of Famers. Their numbers put each of them among the all-time greats at their position. But because they played during a period of 20-plus years where baseball failed to deal with the problem of performance-enhancing drugs, enough writers decided they weren’t worthy of entry into Cooperstown. Neither of them were named in the famed Mitchell Report in 2007. And neither of them failed a drug test. Take it for what it’s worth, but neither was named in any of Jose Canseco’s books. There has only been suspicion. This isn’t to say that Piazza and Bagwell were definitively drug-free. More than likely we never will know exactly which players used steroids and the extent to which drugs were rampant during the Steroid Era.

But how can some voters claim to be consistent and fair if, in future years, they vote for other players from the same era in similar situations. Greg Maddux, Frank Thomas, Mike Mussina and Tom Glavine all are players who are perceived to have good chances of getting into the Hall of Fame in 2014 because they never have been suspected of steroid use. How do Bagwell and Frank Thomas compare? According to baseballreference.com, Bagwell is the No. 1 most similar player to the Big Hurt in baseball history. The two have almost identical career batting averages, runs scored, doubles and slugging percentages. They even won MVP awards in the same season (1994). Yet because Bagwell is perceived as a potential steroid user, Thomas likely will be the only one of the two heading to Cooperstown next year. The issue of how voters handle the legacies of all players from the 1990s and early 2000s is not going away anytime soon. For me, the voters have two choices: Consider every player in the era and vote off their numbers, or vote for nobody at all. But arbitrarily deciding which players did or did not use steroids should not be an option.

Readers urge wife to work Cognitive behavioral therapy through problems at home can relieve childhood anxiety

Dear Abby: This is in response to “Had It in Hartford” (Oct. 6), who has been unhappily married to her husband for 20 years. She said she married him for all the wrong reasons and “has never loved him the way a woman should love a man.” After I had been married for seven years, I went to my pastor concerned that the grass on the other side was looking greener than mine. As we spoke, I began to realize the extent of the investment I had put into my marriage and that I didn’t want to start over again on a new one. My mom always told me, “Marriage is not easy. You will always have to work on it. There will be times when you won’t feel that you like him or love him.” I have been married for 36 years now. Do I notice handsome men, or appreciate a man who treats me kindly? Of course. I’m not blind or dead. Love isn’t just a feeling, but a choice and a commitment. I’m committed to my husband not because I’m “supposed” to be, but because I CHOOSE to be. It seems to me that “Had It” never made that choice or worked toward it, but expected it to just happen eventually. She has a foundation of trust and friendship that helps a marriage through the rough times. Many marriages that end in divorce rely on sexual attraction and passion to carry them instead of friendship.

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips We’re told marriage is 50-50. That’s not true. It’s 100100. I’m responsible for my 100 percent, and my spouse is responsible for his. “Had It” should take another look at what she’s about to lose and tally up the costs to her family. Is she really trapped? Or has she just been unwilling to choose to love?

– Barbara In Mount Vernon, Wash. Dear Barbara: Thank you

for writing. I advised “Had It” to think long and hard before leaving her husband, but that if she truly cannot love him the way he deserves, she should move on. My readers’ comments: Dear Abby: “Had It” doesn’t feel love toward her husband because she spends her time and energy ruminating about a “mistake” she thinks she made 20 years ago. She says he is doing everything right and they get along fine. If she tried something positive, like reminding herself about the qualities she likes about him, and doing things she knows make him happy instead of fantasizing about other men, she might find the love she craves in her marriage. Loving feelings come from loving behavior, not the other way around. The sooner she realizes this, the sooner she’ll see what she really wants is right there at home with her

family. And it has been there all along. – Dr. Peggy B. Dear Abby: I have this message for “Had It”: I felt like you and acted on my feelings. Don’t do it! Wait until your kids are older. As much as you want a more intimate relationship, you cannot begin to imagine the impact straying will have on your kids. I deeply regret what I did, and I wish someone would have told me what I’m telling you. Pull yourself together. Think about your children, extended family and friends. You are connected to others through your husband, and once you pull your marriage apart, everything else falls away, too. – Regretting It In

New York

Dear Abby: “Had It” is probably suffering from a case of the seven-year itch. For some reason, people cycle in seven-year increments. Some of them change jobs or homes, others have affairs or change spouses. She should work through it with a counselor. There is a lot to be said for being married to your best friend. A wise therapist advised me to compliment my husband at least once a day. (“If you act happy, pretty soon it won’t be an act.”) This was after my first bout with the “itch,” and it has been working ever since, 29 years!

Dear Dr. K: I believe my second-grader suffers from anxiety. How is anxiety treated in children? Dear Reader: Many kids have anxiety disorders. There are several different kinds, and most are suffered both by kids and adults, such as generalized anxiety disorder, social phobias, panic disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder. Some anxiety disorders affect only children. The prime example is separation anxiety – an extreme difficulty being away from home or loved ones. Before your child is diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, however, consider this: Some children who are anxious have good reason to be afraid. For example, your child may be a victim of abuse by a relative or a classroom bully. Try to find out if this is the case. If your child is diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, the treatment options are: Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT is the best-confirmed treatment for anxiety disorders in children. A common CBT method is called graduated exposure. In this method, young children with phobias, for example, are placed near the feared object while doing something reassuring and

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff

enjoyable. Older children can learn how to use deep breathing or muscle relaxation, or they can be taught to talk themselves out of fear-provoking thoughts. Another technique is modeling. This involves asking the anxious child to emulate the therapist or another child who shows no fear. Drug therapy. The FDA has not approved any drugs for childhood anxiety disorders. (The only exception is the use of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) for obsessive-compulsive disorder.) But some SSRIs are effective and approved for the treatment of anxiety disorders in adults. As a result, many doctors prescribe these antidepressants for anxious children. Combination treatment. Among children and teens especially, combining CBT and drug therapy is often successful. You and other family members also can help your child. For example, learn techniques for managing your child’s anxiety. Provide models of self-confidence and problem-solving, and give re-

wards for overcoming fears. Sometimes a family problem is the source of the child’s anxiety, or an anxious child may think he or she is the cause of any trouble in the family. In that case, joint family therapy may be a good idea. Many years ago, a patient of mine was having trouble in his marriage. He and his wife were very different personalities. With some marriages, people of like mind find each other. With other marriages, opposites attract. That was their marriage. He was meticulous, cautious, a man of few words who rarely expressed emotion. She was a volcano – always on the go, talked a blue streak, and emotional every minute of her life except when she was asleep. They grew apart. Their 12-year-old daughter, who had been a confident and independent child, became fearful and insecure. Therapy revealed she blamed herself for breaking up their marriage. Sessions with her parents finally absolved her of that guilt – and of her suffocating anxiety.

‘Twilight’ leads Razzie nominations The “Twilight” finale had better reviews than the franchise’s previous four movies, but you’d never know it from the Razzie nominations singling out Hollywood’s worst of the year. “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2” led the Razzies lineup late Tuesday with 11 nominations, including worst picture, lead-acting slots for Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, and supportingacting nominations for Taylor Lautner and Ashley Greene. Other worst-picture nominees are the naval action tale “Battleship,” the family flick “The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure,” Adam Sandler’s raunchy dud “That’s My Boy” and Eddie Murphy’s comedy flop “A Thousand Words.” A spoof of the Academy Awards, the Razzies announcement came a little more than a day before Thursday’s Oscar nominations. Winners for the 33rd annual Razzies will be announced Feb. 23, the night before the Oscar show. The final installment in the supernatural romance involving vampires, werewolves and a moody schoolgirl, “Breaking Dawn – Part 2” also had nominations for worst director for Bill Condon, plus worst sequel, screenplay and screen ensemble. It picked up two nominations for worst screen couple – for Stewart and Pattinson and for Lautner and child co-star Mackenzie Foy.

Warm welcome for new Kimmel time slot

ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” has gotten a warm welcome on its first night airing 30 minutes earlier. Kimmel went head-to-head Tuesday for the first time against CBS’ “Late Show with David Letterman” and NBC’s “Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” According to Nielsen fast national ratings, Kimmel edged out Letterman and ran slightly behind Leno in total viewers. Tuesday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” was seen by about 3 million viewers, only 177,000 fewer than the audience for the “Tonight Show.” It beat “Late Show” by 115,000 viewers. “Jimmy Kimmel Live” scored its second-largest audience ever while exceeding the average audience in its previous berth by 59 percent. “Jimmy Kimmel Live” previously aired at 11 p.m., after “Nightline.” It now airs for an hour beginning at 10:35 p.m., followed by “Nightline.”

online travel services company, Shatner’s Negotiator reveals he has a daughter, played by Cuoco. She’s been schooled since childhood in the art of – what else? – deal-making, and now is ready to join dad in pitching Priceline. Cuoco, 27, said the 81-year-old Shatner has made Priceline “cool,” but the company wanted to update its message for younger consumers. The actors taped a pair of spots for the ad campaign that begins Jan. 14, with plans for two more commercials to be shot this summer, Cuoco said. The first spot is available on YouTube starting Wednesday. She and Shatner turned out to be a good comedic match and had “way too much fun” making the spots, Cuoco said. Shatner returned the compliment, calling her “quite a talent.” Then there’s that connection between Shatner’s “Star Trek” history and Cuoco’s role on the geekfest sitcom “Big Bang Theory.”

‘Problem solvers’

Engineers inspire future inventors in Crystal Lake By BRETT ROWLAND

browland@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – A group of local engineers returned to the classroom this week to teach students at Hannah Beardsley Middle School about opportunities in the industry. The school’s third annual “Discover Engineering Week” program included visits from engineers at Northrop Grumman, Motorola Mobility, Baxter & Woodman, General Kinematics, Cideas Inc., and Sargent & Lundy. The program is designed to spark interest in engineering and encourage students to take courses in science, technology, math, and engineering. On Monday, a group of engineers from Northrop Grumman and Motorola Mobility joined eighth-grade students and teachers in the classroom to talk about engineering and present students with a problem-solving project. Students got a crash course in the career opportunities available for engineers on Tuesday as they attended talks by local professionals. Not all engineers spend their days on mathematical equations, the professionals said. Students were clearly intrigued by the possibilities. “Certain engineers design stuff and then they give their product design to another team of engineers who try to

Health Care REIT Inc. announced Wednesday the completion of the acquisition of the Sunrise Senior Living property portfolio, and the sale of the Sunrise management company. The company’s investment in Sunrise properties is $3.4 billion, and that investment is expected to increase to $4.3 billion by July upon exercise of the company’s rights to acquire additional joint venture partner interests at fixed purchase prices. Area Sunrise Senior Living locations are at 751 E. Terra Cotta Ave. in Crystal Lake, and 510 W. Northwest Hwy. in Barrington. Immediately prior to the acquisition of the Sunrise property portfolio, an entity led by affiliates of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. LP and affiliates of Beecken Petty O’Keefe & Co. acquired the Sunrise management company for approximately $130 million, with Health Care REIT investing approximately $26 million for a 20 percent ownership interest. The Sunrise management company will employ the existing employees of Sunrise Senior Living and operate under the “Sunrise” name and brand, according to George L. Chapman, chairman and CEO of Health Care REIT. The $4.3 billion investment is expected to include 120 wholly owned properties and five joint venture properties.

Towns should review true impact of impact fees

Being in the commercial real estate business as long as I have, and being involved in the development process both as a broker and as a principal, I have had to deal with numerous municipalities on the matter of their impact fees. A layperson probably wouldn’t relate to the term “impact fees” so I thought I’d try to bring everyone up to speed on the subject. Development impact fees have been born out of the notion that “growth should pay for itself.” Certainly that is a noble objective. If a developer wants to build a project that’s going to require a new school to be built or a fire or police station or a new sewage treatment plant, as an individual taxpayer, I don’t want to have to pay for that. Growth has impact on the existing infrastructure of a municipality. A definition of development impact fees is “a one-time charge

assessed to new development.” The objective of these charges is to raise revenue for the construction or expansion of capital facilities (like schools, fire stations, etc.) located outside the physical boundaries of the new development itself from which the new development in question will directly or indirectly benefit. A lot of case law exists nationally on the efficacy of impact fees but suffice it to say there needs to be some rational correlation between the fee assessed and the actual cost of the incremental impact being generated. If you study impact fees from community to community, you will see a wide variation on this subject with some communities heavily buying into the notion or charging impact fees for everything from soup to nuts, and other communities not so hung up on the idea. Because of my orientation to

The real estate side of the ‘fiscal cliff’

There are several key provisions within the recent “fiscal cliff” deal that we all need to keep in mind as property owners. Let’s take a quick look. • Mortgage Cancellation Relief Act. This had been high on the horizon for real estate professionals as the Dec. 31, 2012, deadline of this act loomed. In short, the amount of debt being cancelled by a lender when a property owner “sold short” would have been considered taxable income without this act. The deadline has now been extended to Jan. 1, 2014. That is great news for a lot of Americans whose properties are still worth less than they owe. • Deduction for mortgage insurance premiums. The deadline on this provision was extended through 2013 for tax filers earning below $110,000. • Leasehold improvements. Also extended through 2013, this allows for a 15-year straight-line cost recovery for certain commercial improvements and retroactively includes 2012. • Energy efficiency tax credit. Qualified energy improvements on existing homes (up to $500) is extended through 2013 and retroactively includes 2012. • Capital gains. Stays at a rate of 15 percent for those at the top rate of $400,000/$450,000 and 20 percent on any gains after that. The $250,000/$500,000 exclusions on the sale of a principal residence remains in place. • Estate tax. The first $5 million in individual and $10 million for family estates

REAL ESTATE Jim Haisler are now exempted from the estate tax. The rate after that increased from 35 percent to 40 percent. • Mortgage interest deduction. There was no change to the MID, thankfully. Home ownership is a vital part of the American Dream. With so many losing their homes to foreclosure and short sale, it should be noted that surveys still show a strong desire by most Americans to own their own home. Sixty-seven percent of American households are owner occupied and 80 to 90 percent of all federal income taxes are paid by homeowners. Have you ever heard someone say their dream was to rent a home? Of course not. According to the National Association of Realtors, the average homeowner’s wealth has ranged from 31 to 46 times that of the average renter. Be sure to contact your tax adviser for specific details regarding your situation. This information is provided solely as an reference and to start the discussion with your tax expert.

Housing Affordability Index to set annual record for 2012 NORTHWEST HERALD

With 11 months of data reported, 2012 will go down as a record year for favorable housing affordability conditions, and a great year for buyers who could get a mortgage, according to the National Association of Realtors. NAR’s national Housing Affordability Index stood at 198.2 in November, based on the relationship between median home price, median family income and average mortgage interest rate. The higher the index, the greater the household purchasing power; recordkeeping began in 1970. An index of 100 is defined as the point where a medianincome household has exactly enough income to qualify for the purchase of a medianpriced existing single-family home, assuming a 20 percent down payment and 25 percent of gross income devoted to mortgage principal and interest payments. For firsttime buyers making small down payments, the affordability levels are relatively lower. For all of 2012, NAR projects the housing affordability index to be a record high 194,

up from 186 in 2011, which was the previous record. November’s reading was 2.5 index points below October, but up 1.5 index points from a year earlier. Lawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, said home buyers are able to stay well within their means. “Although 2012 was highest on record, the excessively tight underwriting precluded many would-be homebuyers from lockingin generational low interest rates,” he said. “Rising home prices and a gradual uptrend in mortgage interest rates will offset improvements in family income, but 2013 likely will be the third best on record in terms of household buying power.” NAR projects the housing affordability index to average 160 during 2013, which means on a national basis that a median-income family would have 160 percent of the income needed to purchase a medianpriced existing single-family home. Conditions vary widely, with the highest buying power in the Midwest. Even in the West, where the regional index is lower, the typical family is well positioned in most markets.

COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE Joe Billitteri talk about commercial real estate topics in this column, I think it is totally appropriate to point out that commercial developments and residential developments have different kinds of impacts in the real world. For example, commercial projects don’t create more kids in the schools like residential subdivisions or apartment complexes. The same is true for parks and libraries. The amount of water and sewer usage for general offices and retail uses is very low compared to residential subdivisions. In spite of these differences, I have seen communities (which shall remain nameless) that think it is appropriate to charge commercial

developers certain impact fees even though their developments have zero impact on schools, parks and libraries. I am not advocating eliminating all impact fees for commercial developments, just fair and reasonable fees that can be justified by common sense. Besides impact fees, developers are saddled with so-called “tap-on” fees to hook up to water and sewer as well as building permit fees which are often huge “soft costs” that factor into the feasibility of the project. When a developer adds up the cost of impact fees, tap-on fees and building permit fees and compares those line items in the development budget from one community to another, he may conclude that it’s more cost effective to build the project somewhere else. If this is what a town wants to do (discourage commercial developments) that’s well

and good. But by not at least being competitive with the surrounding towns that you are competing with for commercial projects, you are foregoing the benefits of potential sales tax revenue, jobs, increases to the real estate tax base, etc. that a given commercial development would generate. I think it is fair to say that developer impact fees are here to stay. In and of itself, this is not a bad thing. They have a purpose. When used sensibly and appropriately, they are justifiable and beneficial. But if a town desires commercial development, it needs to review the impact of their impact fees on the development process to make sure it is not giving out the wrong message.

Morgan Stanley plans to cut 1,600 jobs NEW YORK – The investment bank Morgan Stanley plans to cut about 1,600 jobs, nearly 3 percent of its workforce, a person familiar with the bank said Wednesday. The cuts will focus on senior ranks at the bank. About half of the cuts will be in the U.S. Morgan Stanley’s investment banking unit has been asked to cut about 6 percent of its staff. Back-office functions, including human resources and communications, also have been asked to cut staff.

Purina taking some jerky dog treats off market NEW YORK – Nestle Purina PetCare is taking Waggin’ Train and Canyon Creek Ranch brand dog treats off the market because the products may contain trace amounts of a poultry antibiotic that isn’t approved in the U.S. The chicken jerky products, which are made in China, may contain minute amounts of antibiotic residue, Purina said Wednesday. The antibiotic has been approved by Chinese and European Union regulators, but not in the U.S.

The treats are safe to feed to pets, Purina said. Still, they are being taken off the market in the U.S. until further notice. The recall doesn’t cover other Purina products or Canyon Creek Ranch dog and cat foods.

Boeing defends 787 reliability following fire Boeing said Wednesday it has “extreme confidence” in its 787 Dreamliner even as federal investigators try to determine the cause of a fire that has prompted new worries about the plane. The fire happened Monday in one of the plane’s lithium ion batteries. Mike Sinnett, Boeing’s chief engineer for 787, wouldn’t comment on that specific incident, but told reporters that the battery is designed to avoid overheating and the area around the battery is designed to withstand a fire. But questions remain about the high-profile jet, which has a lot riding on it both for Boeing and its airline customers. After a nearly three-year delay, Boeing has delivered 49 of the 787s so far, and has about 800 more on order.

Vannatta, who holds more than 40 patents in the United States, contributed to most of the cell phones students sorted through on Tuesday. He stressed the importance of education, including math, for future engineers. “Engineers are problem solvers, we are curious, we have a bit of detective in us,” he said. “And we can think in the abstract.” Students also heard from Harry Harman, a civil engineer at Baxter & Woodman in Crystal Lake. Harman has designed more than 80 water treatment plants in the last three decades, including the plants serving Crystal Lake, Cary, Fox River Grove, Lakewood, and Lakemoor. Like others, Harman said he wanted to help future generations find a place in a growing industry with a looming shortage of professionals. “Over the next decade there are going to be more engineering jobs than there are engineers,” he said.

Small business mixed on cliff compromise By JOYCE M. ROSENBERG AP Business Writer

NEW YORK – Congress stopped the country from going over the socalled “fiscal cliff” — and that’s great news for some small business owners. But with a deal that doesn’t immediately address federal budget cuts, for many, the uncertainty drags on. The compromise bill that passed the House last week raises taxes on couples earnings $450,000 or more and individuals earning at least $400,000. That affects small company owners who report their companies’ income on their personal 1040 returns. Democrats and small business lobbying groups had estimated that just 5 percent of owners would have paid higher taxes under President Obama’s proposal to raise rates on couples earning $250,000 or more, and individuals earning at least $200,000. The number of owners who will pay higher taxes now is likely to be even less than those estimates. “That will help out tremendously,” says Nate Nelson, who owns a medical testing company, Frontera Strategies, based in Dallas. He sets aside money to pay his taxes, and the higher threshold means he may have more cash available to make

two hires and $80,000 in equipment purchases he’s been putting off. “It will help us loosen the belt a little,” Nelson says. The bill avoids widespread tax increases, but it delays deciding on for two months about spending cuts that could be deep. Companies that benefit from government contracts – whether they work directly for the government or do business with companies that contract with the government – still don’t know how they might be affected by cuts in defense and other federal programs. Without the cliff compromise, the Pentagon and numerous federal agencies would have been subject to billions in budget cuts as early as this month. Cuts are still expected but it’s unclear where, or how much, they will be. Kaney Aerospace, an engineering services company in Rockford, does business with federal contractors. If the government cuts their business, owner Jeff Kaney expects his company to be affected. He’s not sure yet what the impact will be on his business. Nelson shares some of Kaney’s concern. He’s worried that the budget debate could result in a reduction in Medicare reimbursements

on the medical tests he provides. “It could have a detrimental effect on our business,” he says. The unknowns will lead owners to keep running their businesses conservatively, says Dennis Ceru, an adjunct professor of entrepreneurship at Babson College in Wellesley, Mass. “The concern I see is expressed in the form of not signing longer-term leases, looking to defer expensive equipment expenditures, looking to defer hiring and using seasonal and part-time workers instead of fulltime ones,” he says. Compounding owners’ concerns are the weakness in the economy and the government’s inability to come up with solutions to its budget problems, says Scott Meadow, a professor of entrepreneurship at the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business. “All of those things are kind of the foundation of this anxiety that’s out there – when is the sword going to fall, what is the effect going to be,” he says. “It’s that anxiety that causes (a small business owner) to slow down.” That means 2013 is likely to look a lot like 2012 for small businesses, says Kathleen Allen, a professor of entrepreneurship at the University

of Southern California Marshall School of Business. “I don’t think that this kind of uncertainty and volatility is going to change anytime soon,” she says. Some other important issues for small businesses related to the fiscal cliff deal: Business tax breaks survive: Owners contemplating equipment purchases got some help. The bill maintains what’s known as the Section 179 deduction, which allows small businesses to deduct rather than depreciate the cost of many types of equipment, at $500,000 for 2013. It was scheduled to fall to $25,000. Also extended for another year is what’s known as bonus depreciation. That allows businesses to deduct 50 percent of the cost of equipment or real estate. It gives them a quicker tax break than the tax code’s standard depreciation schedules, which require that the cost of property be depreciated over the course of a few years or decades, depending on the type of property. The continuation of these deductions means Traxler Tees can buy more equipment and hire three fulltime staffers, says Zachary Traxler, owner of the Columbus, Ohio-based company that makes custom-printed

T-shirts. “That’s going to allow us to do a major expansion,” Traxler says. He wants to branch out into business cards and other products. The tax savings he expects from the bill will help fund that growth. Payroll taxes will hurt spending, but jobless benefit-extension could help: The end to the 2-percentagepoint cut in the Social Security payroll tax is worrisome for many owners. The payroll tax cut, first enacted two years to encourage people to spend, will be allowed to lapse. A worker earning $50,000, for example, will now have $1,000 less in take-home pay. Workers will start feeling the pinch as soon as the first paychecks of 2013 are issued. Many people will respond by cutting back on discretionary spending and that’s bound to hurt many small businesses. “Think about the person who runs the local sandwich shop, the coffee shop, the local business person ... they’ll feel it more,” says Ceru, the adjunct professor at Babson. On the flipside, the bill extends long-term jobless benefits, keeping money in the pockets of many people who are actively seeking work for another year.

Car sharing has its pros and cons By SAMANTHA BOMKAMP AP Travel Industry Writer

NEW YORK – The ability to access a car quickly and give it back after a few hours is exploding in popularity among both college students and city dwellers. Zipcar created the carsharing concept in 2000. By the end of the decade car-sharing had caught the attention of the two largest U.S. car rental companies as Enterprise and Hertz started competing services. And last week, Avis, the nation’s No. 3 car rental company, jumped into by offering nearly $500 million to buy Zipcar. While car-sharing is a popular alternative for those who rely on public transit or live on walking-friendly college campuses, it’s not feasible in less-populated areas. Traditional car rental companies still dominate at airports, catering to travelers who need a car while they’re on business or visiting family away from home. Here’s a look at how Zipcar works, for whom it works best and what it can cost.

HOW IT WORKS

Zipcar says it caters to a younger, more tech-savvy customer who wants a simplified car-borrowing experience. Car-sharing is far quicker than a traditional rental, where you’ll go to a counter and stand in line to wait for a car. And Zipcar has a fleet of small trucks that are also useful for local moves. With Zipcar and its carsharing brethren, customers leave a car in a city parking lot, garage or in an assigned parking space on a college campus. “Zipsters,” as Zipcar calls its customers, then find the car with the name tag that matches their reservation. Viewing the make and model on the company’s smartphone app allows for easier spotting. The car is locked and unlocked with a membership “Zipcard.” The keys are stashed under the dash. Zipcars aren’t often checked for cleanliness or gas in between renters (they ask

that you keep a quarter-tank at all times.) That can be a downside compared with standard car rentals. Zipcar customers fuel up using a gas card that’s stored in each car. With a traditional rental, customers fill up as if it’s their own car and are expected to return the car full or face a hefty per-gallon charge. Car-sharers can extend their rental on the mobile app or by signing up for text alerts, as long as another member hasn’t reserved the car already. To return the car, bring it back to a marked parking space and swipe the Zipcard on the windshield. That stops your rental clock and tells the company that you returned the car on time.

WHAT IT COSTS

To join Zipcar, members pay a $25 application fee and $50 a year. Rates run from $7.50 an hour and include gas, insurance and any mileage racked up beyond 180 miles a day. By comparison, Hertz on Demand Standard car rental prices vary widely but generally range between $50 and $100 per day in big cities.

PROS AND CONS

You’re generally not charged for mileage if you’re renting from Hertz or Avis. “Zipsters” have to pay for any trip longer than 180 miles. For a long weekend trip, a Zipcar might not be your best bet, especially if you’re driving a great distance. You only have to be 21 to rent a Zipcar, or 18 if you’re renting it from a university campus and have a clean driving record. Most renters have to be 25 to rent through a traditional rental car company. Sometimes, younger drivers can rent for an extra per-day fee. Once you go beyond 24 hours, car-sharing is generally more expensive than a standard rental. Zipcar is far larger than competitors Hertz and Enterprise, but you can link your rewards memberships through those companies and earn points for future rentals.

S.D.’s oldest car dealership celebrates 105th year By DAVID ROOKHUYZEN Capital Journal

PIERRE, S.D. – The owner of a newfangled horseless carriage in the early 20th century wouldn’t recognize much about the cars now on the road. But he would still recognize the name of the family in Pierre to see for all things automotive — Wegner. Wegner Auto Company, the oldest car dealership in the state, may have changed with the times, but it’s still the same business a mill operator from Nebraska founded more than a century ago. Henry Wegner traveled up the Missouri River in the early 1900s to see the newly established permanent state capital of Pierre, eventually becoming enamored with the area. In 1907 he seized on a business opportunity and founded a livery next to where a new hotel, the St. Charles, was slated to be built. Once the hotel was up and running, Wegner fixed vehicles and provided a covered area for patrons to keep the openair wagons and horseless carriages of the time safe from the elements.

His fledgling business grew and Wegner began driving vehicles to Pierre from Minneapolis or Omaha for various distributors in order to sell them. From that sprung the Wegner dealership that would employ the next three generations of his family. Henry’s great-grandson, Jim Wegner, said the company has survived as long as it has because it has diversified and expanded to the meet the various challenges of the last century. A log book from the 1940s sitting in the dealership’s lounge gives a dramatic example. It records five Oldsmobile purchases in 1942 and then a dearth of sales for the next two and a half years as World War II disrupted automobile production by diverting steel, rubber and other goods to the war effort. The company survived by focusing on repair work and keeping the cars on the streets running, Wegner said. The dealership has also sold tires for 80 out of its 105 years of operation, he said. In the late 1940s it branched out into the farm implement and equipment industries. The

dealership sold Allis-Chalmers single round balers, which would bring in more money than any car in that era. In 1972, seeking more space, the company moved from its original location to its current spot on Sioux Avenue. Once there, the business began slowly buying out surrounding buildings to continue expanding. Wegner said the company has grown beyond being just a car dealer. It’s now a “transportation consultant,” whose various departments – parts, service, body shop, collision center – support a customer as long as they own a vehicle. “Every transportation need you have we’ve got here, anything you want we’ve got here,” he said. And although he’s the fourth generation to run the dealership, Wegner said that wasn’t planned by either he or his family. After college he came back to help in the parts department while the business was moving to its new facility, and wound up staying for 40 years simply because he enjoyed it. “They didn’t say ‘We want

you to come back’ or ‘You got to come back.’ There’s never been any pressure to do anything like that,” he said His sister, Jenny WegnerBoocock, followed the same path, eventually coming back to Pierre after several years of working in the Black Hills. Her son, Bryan, also now works for the dealership. Even outside of the family the company benefits from a long continuity of leadership, Wegner said. “We got employees that have been here 30-plus years,” he said. “I look back on it and its amazing. The parts manager has been here 35 years, our new car manager has been here 25 years; our usedcar manager has been here 26 years. Our body shop manager has been here for 36 years; our service manager has been here for 40 years.” Additionally some of the sales staff has worked for the dealership more than 25 years. One has been selling cars in Pierre for 50 years, he said. Looking to the future, Wegner said the company is going to stay right where it is, but has plans in the works to remodel.

Surviving one music revolution after another, vinyl records keep spinning By BRIAN EASON The Clarion-Ledger

JACKSON, Miss. – Cassettes are dead. CDs are dying. Eight-tracks were barely ever alive. But through one music revolution after another, vinyl records have continued spinning, and the medium is finding a resurgence among young and older listeners alike. “I think it’s just kind of rebelling against the digital music – and the ready-availability of music,” said Drew McKercher, owner of Morning-

bell Records & Studios in Jackson. His store sold out of record players days before Christmas, mirroring strong sales trends nationwide. Even as sales of CDs plummet – down 14.4 percent through the first nine months of 2012 – and sales of digital music rise – up 15.3 percent – vinyl has found its own niche in a consumer market that has been spurning physical media in virtually all other forms. Vinyl record sales rose 16.3 percent through the first three quarters of 2012, putting it on pace for a seventh straight year of growing sales.

For perspective, 2011 saw 3.5 million vinyl records sold, compared to just 857,000 in 2005, according to Nielsen SoundScan, which tracks music sales. CDs were still the top medium at 129.7 million albums sold, but digital sales, at 85.5 million in 2011, are catching up fast. The reasons for the vinyl crescendo? That varies by consumer. Audiophiles, the industry’s term for those who care deeply about audio quality, have long maintained that vinyl offers music in its purest form. Others may argue in favor of CDs, but

with the advent of compressed mp3s, audiophiles are turning back to vinyl for a purer listening experience. An average music listener may not detect much of a quality difference – particularly when they listen to most of their music on tiny computer speakers or through earbuds. The difference in quality is real; your typical mp3 file is a fraction of the size of the same file on CD, and to the well-tuned ear, nuance can be lost in the compression. Vinyl is also stylish among certain sets of young music fans – hipsters,

certainly, and non-hipsters who share many of the same interests. For many in this group – some of whom kind of always wanted to be John Cusack’s character in “High Fidelity,” or to work at Empire Records – vinyl is just cool, in the way that retro things often become trendy to future generations. Others like to collect it; vinyl albums offer bigger cover artwork and booklets with song lyrics and photos, and new records usually come with a free digital download of the album, so they can still listen to their music on the go.

Urban sawmill

‘Wood From the Hood’ recycles trees By BOB SHAW

St. Paul Pioneer Press

MINNEAPOLIS – If a tree has an afterlife, Cindy Siewert can find it. She owns Wood From the Hood, a business that recycles trees into furniture, walls and flooring. It’s a way for the owners of a beloved tree to make it part of their lives — recycling memories and wood at the same time. She won’t touch a tree that’s been unnecessarily sawed down. “We only take fallen trees from disease, construction or storm damage,” Siewert said in her Wood From the Hood showroom in the Seward neighborhood of South Minneapolis. The business began after she and her husband, Rick Siewert, were faced with an ash tree growing into the foundation of their home. At the same time, they needed new kitchen flooring. Instead of importing wood from, say, China or Brazil, thought Siewert, why not use the wood that was only a few feet away? The idea kept coming up. In a later conversation, the owner of a tree service confessed he felt guilty about trucking local trees away like garbage. “He said, ‘We really have

to do something. We are just hauling these to the dump,’ “ recalled Rick Siewert. Cindy Siewert started Wood From the Hood in 2008, sharing a site with her husband’s cabinet-making business. But she faced an immediate problem. When people live close to trees, they can’t seem to resist pounding in nails — for ladder steps, hammock holders, light hangers. Siewert’s collection of metal found in trees includes an arrowhead, screws and a 14inch lag bolt. In sawmills, even a small nail can ruin a standard $1,000 circular blade. That’s why most lumber comes from trees grown in vast corporate forests and urban trees end up in landfills. But Siewert found a solution. Her workers saw the logs in a portable sawmill with a lightweight band-saw blade. If it hits a nail, the new blade is a snap to replace — for only $30. The sawmill-on-a-trailer can handle an 8-foot log 2 feet in diameter, sawing it into planks. Siewert’s first big job was the visitors center at the new Silverwood Park in St. Anthony. The park had removed 80 oak trees, and Wood From

the Hood recycled them into counters and furniture. Acting as a mortician for dead trees, Siewert quickly learned that she benefited from tree diseases. The recent outbreak of emerald ash borer has meant more ash for her to work with, just as Dutch elm disease triggers a glut of elm. When insects recently forced the destruction of 200 trees at the Fort Snelling Golf Club, Siewert took 33 of the biggest ones and turned them into various products. She has found a market in builders seeking LEED certification, a kind of seal of approval for “green” construction methods. As Siewert started a recent tour of her shop, she stepped into a vast clattering factory where ear-plugged workers scurried among the machines. A router whined loudly as workers pushed elm pieces into it, to make seats for a swing-set company. Stacks of red cedar from Chaska were waiting to be transformed into cribbage boards. Piles of wood were colorcoded, to reveal their origins. Rick Siewert pointed out some turquoise-tipped planks, from ash trees removed when a memorial was installed at the state Capitol. Yellow-

Most of Wood From the Hood’s customers feel a connection to their trees. When the people at Macalester College in St. Paul wanted to remember a silver maple that had died, Cindy Siewert

turned it into a decorative wall in a conference room. When an ash tree fell on the St. Paul campus of Hamline University, it was reborn as a display to honor donors. Siewert gets calls from homeowners who want to preserve memories.

A Minneapolis attorney was saddened when a favorite oak fell in his yard, so he had it made into a conference table for his office. One woman wanted to sleep with her fallen black walnut tree – so she had Siewert turn it into a bed headboard.

Church-based coffeehouse supports counseling work By RYAN TRARES Associated Press

GREENWOOD, Ind. –The evening rush had hit Coffeehouse Five, bringing a line of people to wait for their smoothies and coffee. In tables and overstuffed chairs throughout the small space, they sipped on cappuccinos and lattes. Soft brown tones and low light create a welcoming atmosphere. Christmas music redone by contemporary artists played. The scene could have come out of any Starbucks. But for every cup of coffee or chai tea they took, the patrons were helping the mission work of a Johnson County church. While Coffeehouse Five has the look and feel of a neighborhood café, it’s actually the engine that helps support local counseling efforts. The model is an example of area churches diversifying their fundraising efforts. By starting coffee shops, cafés and restaurants in their buildings, they can make money to help pay for addiction therapy to disaster relief to clean-water projects in Africa. “We don’t look like a church or sound like a church. But we are. Our goal is to serve the community, and our goal is to build disciples of Christ through stronger marriages,” Brian Peters, pastor and director of Coffeehouse Five. “This is the way we’re doing it.” The church lobby coffeehouse has become a tool to help further the causes that congregations find important. A sense of community is one of the primary draws to streetcorner cafés, and churches offer that already built in. By building on that atmosphere, congregations can appeal to a new demographic and bring new people into the church, all while aiding their mission work. “It’s welcoming and inviting. They can sit down and talk with their friends, then have a cup of coffee and take it into the service,” said Kathy Stahlhut, who oversees the café. “It promotes relationships and getting to know each other better.” When the leaders at Greenwood Christian Church were remodeling their facility, one of the priorities was providing a place where the congregation could meet before and after services. They designed a wide-open commons area to solve that issue. Inside, they created a

Pastor Brian Peters stands behind the counter of Coffeehouse Five at the Greenwood Christian Church in Greenwood, Ind. coffee bar complete with highstanding tables, a counter where people can take advantage of free wireless Internet and a lounge where people can meet. With a fancy new space, church leaders thought the café could be more than just a place to serve coffee and doughnuts after worship. They envisioned opening it up to the public, said David Strange, executive minister at Greenwood Christian Church. “Every weekend, there’s a line, and there’s always good traffic during the week as well,” Strange said. “When we first started, we wondered how it would work, but it didn’t take long to catch on.” The café is open in the mornings for three hours, and before and after worship services. People can order anything from hot chocolate to cinnamon rolls to specialty mochas. Profits from the café go to the church’s evangelism ministry throughout the year. Greenwood Christian Church supports church training in Mexico, medical services in Ghana and school construction in Papua New Guinea. The church has many fundraising drives to help pay for those missions. Much of the profit generated by the World Harvest Café goes to emergency services and special projects. “If something happens, like a disaster, or if a project comes up that they didn’t expect, that’s what they can use that money for,” Strange said. Coffeehouse Five has taken that concept a step further. Instead of the café being within a church building, the coffee shop is the church itself. Working with the leadership at Community Church of Greenwood, Peters started

his own ministry, One Hope Church. Coffeehouse Five is the home base of One Hope Church. The sole reason for its existence is to strengthen the community through counseling. Coffeehouse Five helps fund the church’s work, which is to provide free and accessible marriage counseling. Peters and others in the church meet with couples before they get married, mentor couples struggling in their marriage and provide help for people addicted to drugs or alcohol. Peters had been on the staff as a pastor at Community Church of Greenwood for 10 years before he came up with the idea to start Coffeehouse Five. While at the church, he found himself doing an increasing amount of marriage counseling. He also helped with more and more people struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. Part of his struggle was with the role of the church in a community. “The local church, instead of existing to meet its own needs, it should exist to meet the needs of a community and to serve,” Peters said. The overwhelming challenge he saw in the Johnson County community was how to assist children and help them succeed. Problems such as abuse, neglect, poverty and poor education threatened the next generation. Many agencies address those issues, so Peters looked for a more unique solution. He focused on the increasing number of divorces as a root cause of all of the issues facing kids. Research has shown that children with divorced parents are more likely to live in poverty and to suffer abuse. At the same time, they are less likely to go to college. “With the work I was al-

We thought we could do that by addressing needs of children by targeting divorce,” Peters said. They also wanted to create an environment that was welcoming for counseling. Too often, the places where marriage therapy or drug and alcohol counseling is done is either too sterile or undignified. That turns people off, Peters said. “We want people to feel good, to relax, to be comfortable. Then we want to provide them with help,” Peters said. Peters and his family are deeply rooted in the culture of the coffee shop — the

earthy smells of the beans, the warmth of community that meets in the same place daily, the friendliness of the barista who knows your name and order. His daughter had worked in the coffee business, so she helped put together equipment purchasing and training. The coffeehouse is in the Gathering Place, Community Church of Greenwood’s recreation center. Worship services for those that are being counseled are conducted on Sundays in the coffee shop. The coffee shop conducted a music series during the summer and is open to more events in the future. So far, the response has

been positive since Coffeehouse Five opened almost two years ago. But people have been slow to grasp the idea of a coffee shop church. “It’s such a different concept. People wrestle with the fact that we don’t look like a church,” Peters said. “And it’s hard when people can go through the drive-through at Starbucks.” The goal in the near future is to move to a more accessible location, possibly in a storefront or shopping center in Greenwood. “Our goal is to be a freeservice, free-standing coffee shop,” Peters said. “People get the idea. They think it’s a good concept, but it’s taken a while for them to grasp it.”

He pours his soul into custom footwear By NONA TEPPER Journal Star

PEORIA – Justin Fenwick’s story begins with a pair of decorated sneakers, size 10.5 and for sale from the back of his trunk. His car was parked at the 1900 block of Knoxville Avenue, at a gas station at night, because when you’re selling to a crowd “you wouldn’t bring over to mom and pop’s house,” he said, you don’t want them knowing where you live. “If you’re from the (1980s) and up you understand,” he said. F e n w i c k o p e r a t e s u nder the professional name Donk’e Punch, and is the self-described Andy Warhol of shoes. The 36-year-old customizes shoes, specifically Nike Air Force 1s, and adds Swarovski crystals, removes logos and retools the kicks to meet any image of his mind’s eye. “It just comes in your head,” he said. “You picture it in your mind, and try and meet that picture.” Celebrities such as Kanye West, rapper Consequence and boxer Floyd Mayweather have commissioned the East Peoria man to customize shoes for them, with prices ranging between $200 and $1,500, depending on design. “Some people settle for just average,” he said. “I like to go above average.”

Justin Fenwick works on a new shoe design. Fenwick began customizing shoes in 2004, frustrated by the lack of sneaker variety Peoria had to offer. One weekend a friend caught him wearing a custom pair of Nikes at Northwoods Mall and, after admitting his craftsmanship, orders for specialized shoes by Donk’e Punch started coming in. For the next two and half years, Fenwick worked solely on his shoes, living off the income of customers’ requests. Learning to sew and remove a shoe’s tongue took hours, he said, but slowly Donk’e Punch refined it to an art form. “The sneakers are just my canvas,” he said. “It’d be no different if I was painting a painting, the difference is it’s a sneaker and it’s wearable art.”

Today, Fenwick estimates he has customized about 700 pairs of shoes, with themes including Russia, a colorful “Party Rock” shoe and yellow shoes made for Fenwick’s daisy-themed wedding. Inspiration comes from anywhere, he said. The only thing he avoids is doing what’s been done. “I don’t model myself after anybody,” he said. “I try to, if anything, live up to my artist name.” Although Fenwick is from Peoria, he said Donk’e Punch is a line more widely recognized in New York City and Chicago. In 2007 he traveled to Los Angeles to expand his brand. W h i l e t h e r e , h e s p o tted a storefront advertising customized shoes and, curious, Fenwick walked in and

He recognized four years of hard work scattered between the pages. “I’m from Peoria, Ill., and you go all the way out to L.A. and L.A.’s huge – and you just so happen to run into that?” he said. “I think in a funny way God’s trying to tell you something.” If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Fenwick said he knew he must be do-

ing something right. The 36-year-old kept working, customizing and listening to motivational speeches by Arnold Schwarzenegger to stay positive. “I’m not trying to be the Tom Cruise of custom shoes,” he said. “I don’t care if people see me out. I just want my work to get the limelight.” This September, he began talks with a Las Vegas casino to design a line of casino-

themed shoes. By summer, Fenwick will have Lace Nation, his first full line of custom shoes, featured at a gallery show. Ultimately, he’d like to design a pair of shoes for Nike. “I’m not out here searching for what am I good at, what am I talented at,” he said. “To me, I’ve found that, and I’m just trying to build on that as I go.”

Pottery business expands into husband’s office building By DENNIS BARTLOW Commercial-News

DANVILLE – Marie and Jon McCarty have a unique business arrangement that has expanded to Danville. Jon is an attorney who moved from Chicago to Covington, Ind., where he opened a law practice. He later opened an office on Gilbert Street in Danville, his hometown. Marie opened Potter’s Alley in the back part of Jon’s office in Covington three years ago. Many of Marie’s customers were from Danville who were thrilled when she decided to expand into her husband’s office building in Danville. She has taken the front part of the building, while her husband maintains space in the back for law clients. Marie admits the arrangement is unique. “They are two different businesses,” she said. “It is like a mom and pop operation, but we are different. We fit together. It is our space.” Potter’s Alley is unique. “It is experiences with a good memory,” Marie said. “You come in and create something. You create it

yourself.” She features Bisquewear, a type of ceramic in her pottery and ceramic studio. Customers pick out a piece, paint it and design it. “You can spend a couple hours or come in several times to work on it,” she said. “There is something about ceramics.” This is not a made-to-buy store. Customers create their own designs. “You can walk in during the hours we are open,” Marie said. “We will walk you through the steps.” Party time is the big thing. Children’s groups, mom’s groups and church women all have used the shop as groups. Parents find it is a blessing for children especially during the cold months, Marie said. Recently a woman brought her grandchild who put her handprint on a dish that was glazed as Christmas gift. “There is nothing like this,” said Marie, a native of Hoopeston. It is especially popular during the winter months. Deb Duncan said the idea started at the former art gallery that she ran on the east

side of the square in Covington, where Marie came in and taught classes. “It started at the art gallery and we had the idea to expand it,” Duncan said. She and McCarty opened Potter’s Alley in Covington, but McCarty bought her out after a year. “She is enormously talented,” Duncan said. “She is so energetic, and Jon is supportive and pushes her.” Duncan said so many ages can participate. “There are so many things kids can do,” Duncan said. “It is a great place for families. Ladies like to get together for a ladies’ night out.” Marie plans to be in the Covington store most of the time. She has hired a college student to run the Danville store, but she expects to be there a couple of days a week. She has been working on getting the new studio ready since August. She said the holiday time was a good time to open. She is planning a grand opening this month. “Art was my passion,” Marie said. “I took it three times a day in high school.”

She is a part-time art teacher at Covington Christian

School. “I have had classes in Covington during the summer,” she said. “It gives me a chance to teach again.”

McCarty loves her work. “There is nothing like this,” she said. “Every day is different. You make it your own.”

The Reserve attracts two custom builders Jerry Kuyper ST. CHARLES - Meritus Homes has begun selling 17 home sites at The Reserve, a single-family housing community just west of Route 31 and the Fox River. Another builder, John Hall Homes, has been active in sales since 2009 at the upscale subdivision of custom housing, which is contiguous with the completed River’s Edge neighborhood. The subdivision is between Red Gate and Silver Glen roads and across the street from open

space and a dog park. Construction is underway on a nearby bridge connecting west to east connections to St. Charles and to Schaumburg via Route 25 and Army Trail Road. St. Charles North High School is a half mile from the subdivision. Meritus began sales in December. Plans are to have a two-story, four-bedroom Dunberry design built by May, which can serve as a sales model for the Deerfield-based development company. Besides the Dunberry, there are six other floor plans. They range in size from 2,600 to 3,800 square feet. The plans include attached two- or three-car garages, four to five bedrooms,

two-and-a-half- to thee-and-ahalf baths. Basements will be full, not partial. Because of the terrain, several lots will allow for a walk-out basement. Floor plans can be customized, Meritus president Brian Brunhofer said. “We understand that desire for personalization and so we will work with our buyers to include their specific requests in our designs,” he noted. Island kitchens with granite countertops and 42-inch cabinets, stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors, sodded and landscaped sites will be included in the pricing that begins at $459,900.

John Hall Homes is active in building custom homes at The Reserve subdivision in St. Charles.

• BUILDER

Continued from page F1 A sales office is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily at 745 Reserve Drive. For information, call (847) 609 9777 or visit [ http://www.meritushomebuilders.com/ ]www.MeritusHomeBuilders.com. When completed, The Reserve will have 133 single-family homes on 135 acres. So far, 33 have been built in Phase I, which consists of 45 building lots. Phase II consists of 88 lots slated for market in 2013. John Hall Homes has been selling custom homes for several years in the subdivision. A 3,600 square-foot custom house can cost $549,000. “Our homes have sold steadily from $500,000 to $850,000,” company president John Hall Jr. said. “We offer complete packages with house, lot (half-acre) and landsdcaping from $479,000 to more than $900,000. Our current portfolio of homes completed in The Reserve range from $525,000 to $825,000.” For information call 630-377 1515, visit www.johnhallhomes. com or email johnjr@johnhallhomes.com. Hall’s company has notched at least a dozen sales in the past few years at The Reserve. “Here is the story on The Reserve,” Hall said. “Things were really in a bad free-for-all when Janco Group (Chicago real estate investment company) bought out Ryland Homes in 2009. They were looking for ways to inspire people to start building again and one of the things they did is hire us to build a spec house (build at your expense and hope a customer comes along quickly to buy it) when nobody else was doing it. They put their guts and reputation on the line but they wanted to prove that neighborhoods in the Fox River Valley, such as The Reserve, were the best deals around. They wanted one of our classic designs and that is what we built.” And today Hall continues to build and sell spec as well as clientfinanced housing. Gary Janko is senior managing director, principal and founder of Janko Group. His career spans 37 years in the acquisition, development and financing of real estate. The real estate portfolio exceeds $250 million. Founded in 1969, John Hall Homes has been building homes for 43 years. Shoppers can visit 2020 Dean St. (suite A) in St. Charles.

Custom kitchens in John Hall Homes single-family houses at The Reserve include hardwood floors, granite countertops, a center island, stainless-steel built-in appliances and upper and lower cabinetry. owners of John Hall Homes considered going out of business. “We had only two houses going in 2008. In a normal year, we like to see nine to 11 or more going up,” John Hall Jr. said in a 2010 interview. “It was dreadful.” The family gathered during the 2008 Christmas season with their subcontractors to discuss survival. The family included marketing manager Hall, his brother, site manager Joshua and their sister, interior decorator Jessica Jungman-Hall. “We sat down with our subcontractors and discussed the challenges in the market. We also talked about opportunities but to succeed we had to change the way we did business. We had to maintain the quality and value we offered to our clients, but we had to trim our operating margins and profits,” Hall Jr. said. More than 90 percent of the subcontractors agreed to new terms and the rest is a story of sales success. This is the second foray into St. Charles for Meritus Homes. Last August the company opened Remington Glen, a town house development on a foreclosed piece of property near Peck Road and

Route 64. Meritus acquired the remaining opportunities to build in the Remington Glen property after the original developer (Remington Glen LLC) defaulted on the project, which entered foreclosure in 2010. “I think everyone in the area is excited to know an established builder like Meritus Homes is coming into the area and taking control of the property to finish it the right way,” Brunhofer said six months ago. Prior to 2010, the original developer promised to repair streets, sidewalks and sewers. The year 2010 came and went with no activity so the city took charge. In early 2011, St. Charles claimed $115,000 from a line of credit from MB Financial to cover the cost to complete public roads, sidewalks and storm sewers. The Brunhofers then came on the scene. By early July, the property was bought in a short sale from the original developers. Meritus plans to build 33 maintenance-free town houses measuring 1,645 to 2,020 square feet with two to three bedrooms, 2 baths, an attached two-car garage and a first-floor master or loft, per plan. Prices begin in the upper $100,000s.

Approximately two-thirds of Remington Glen’s original 100 home sites had been sold before Meritus took ownership of the property, which means new town house buyers will be moving into an already established community. “These are great plans in a great location and now that the real estate market is picking up pace again, buyers can feel confident they’re getting a tremendous value as we’ll be offering these homes for $100,000s less than they were priced a few years ago,” Brunhofer continued. “It makes these townhomes an option for buyers who may previously have found St. Charles to be outside their budget. This is an amazing opportunity in a very sought-after suburb, offering all the hallmarks of the Meritus Homes community … a convenient location, area amenities and an attractive neighborhood.” There will be home owner association fees and they are $176 per month. Fees cover exterior maintenance of the building, common area insurance, snow removal and landscape improvements. Meritus also offers single-family housing at Creekside at Inverness Ridge and Ravenna of Long Grove.

With a handful of houses left to be sold, Meritus sees its days numbered at Creekside, a 210-lot subdivision a few miles south of Barrington off Barrington Road. Ravenna still is active. Meritus was founded several years ago by Brian and Karen Brunhofer, who were both Chicago division presidents for Pulte Homes, the nation’s largest homebuilding company. They have been married 11 years and have three children. The couple has more than 30 years of combined experience in the new-house building industry. During that time they led teams that delivered more than 10,000 homes in the Chicago area. St. Charles amenities that both Brunhofer and Hall remind potential buyers of include a historic downtown, St. Charles Place Shopping Center. the Fox River for recreational opportunities such as canoeing, kayaking and paddleboat rides, as well as biking and hiking along riverfront paths. Other amenities in the area include Geneva Commons, a shopping center located along Randall Road, Pheasant Run Resort and Golf Course, the Fox River Trail and the Great Western Trail.

By PHILLIP ALDER Newspaper Enterprise Association

Francis Ford Coppola said, “When newspapers started to publish the box office scores of movies, I was horrified. Those results are totally fake because they never include the promotion budget.” I never thought of that. And not many Easts would think of the winning defense in today’s deal. How can East defeat four spades after West leads the heart nine? The auction was straightforward and quantitative, North’s rebid in principle showing a balanced hand (no singleton or void) with (typically) seven losers and 13 to 15 support points (counting high-card points and shortage points). Although it goes against the usual recommendation of experts, West might have led the club ace, since it was the unbid suit. If he had, East would have had to discourage with his six, not encourage a club continuation with the 10. When West instead led high from his heart doubleton, East won with his queen, cashed the ace, and played a third round of the suit. Momentarily, this

looked good. If declarer had ruffed high, West would have gained a trump trick to go with his club ace. However, instead, South calmly discarded his singleton club. West trumped and tried to cash the club ace, but declarer ruffed, drew trumps, and claimed. There is a golden rule of trump promotion: Cash all of your side-suit winners first. After taking his two heart winners, East had to cash the club king before playing the third heart. And if you know someone capable of finding that play, ask her or him to partner you.

TODAY - In the coming months, spend the necessary time and effort to gain the material security vital to both your pet projects and your workaday endeavors. If you’re prepared for anything, you’ll be able to handle everything. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Even though you mean well, back off if a friend starts hinting that you’re being too inquisitive. You pal is anxious to confide in you, but must do so in his or her own good time. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- In order to gain the cooperation of a friend, you must first show willingness to compromise. You need to be able to bend a little, or you’ll never get what you want. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- A failure on your part to appreciate an associate’s point of view could create some severe friction between the two of you. Make it a point to see things from another point of view. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- This is not a day to make an impulsive gamble, even if you think it would expedite matters for you. It won’t. Stick to the straight and narrow, even if it takes more time. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- As long as you don’t make negative assumptions, some pleasant experiences can be in the offing. Conversely, if you anticipate having a bum time, that’s what’s going to happen. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Attitude is everything, especially where your career or work is concerned. Whatever you do, don’t make your responsibilities more difficult than they really are. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It’s especially important that you don’t make any purchases -- be they big or small -- rashly. Check all available sources before spending your money on a big-ticket item. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- The chances that you’ll fulfill a personal ambition are pretty good, but you must make sure that you don’t handle things in a self-serving fashion, which would ruffle a few feathers. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Unless you openly discuss things that have bugged you lately, they could fester in your brainpan. Instead of suffering in silence, expose what ails you to the light of day. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Money matters could be a mixed bag for you at present. Although you are likely to make a wrong move that’ll cost you money, you’ll have a chance to rectify it later, if you’re smart enough. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Provided that associates feel you’re not trying to manipulate them, they’ll be willing to consider your directives. To be on the safe side, explain your intentions before you implement them. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- When you allow your emotions to override your sound logic, you become vulnerable to repeating past errors. Don’t fail to learn from experience.
