Huntley hospital plans accelerate Centegra wants to move $233 million project off Haligus and Reed roads By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO HUNTLEY – Village officials are eager to hear from Centegra Health System executives about why they want to move their $233 million hospital off the original location of Haligus and Reed roads in

Huntley. The two sides meet later this week for the first planning meeting since a state board gave Centegra the green light last summer to build the five-story, 128-bed hospital in the growing area of Huntley. Centegra’s relocation decision is a minor one, since the

hospital still will be built in the area of Haligus and Reed roads. The move would locate the hospital toward the middle of Centegra’s Health Bridge and ambulatory care mall, near Algonquin Road, a half mile south of the original intersection. But the village still has a

stake in the planning for the new hospital, and officials want a clear understanding of any changes to designs as Centegra accelerates planning in the coming months for a potential October groundbreaking. “This is the largest, single building project in the history

of the village,” Village Manager Dave Johnson said. “So it’s important that the lines of communication are clear from the beginning.” Village staff, trustees and Plan Commission members are looking forward to hearing the “rationale” behind the relocation of the hospital

toward Centegra’s existing facilities in Huntley, Johnson said. Officials also want to discuss traffic patterns and parking inside what now is being called Huntley’s Centegra Health Campus.

A Balancing act

Speech to announce next steps in Afghanistan war What it means The president also raised expectations for action this year on climate change after devoting a significant amount of time to the issue in his address at the inauguration. But the unemployment rate is persistently high at 7.9 percent, economic growth slowed last quarter and consumer confidence is falling, so the economy could upend Obama’s plans to pursue a broader domestic agenda in his final four years in office.

By JULIE PACE The Associated Press WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama will focus his State of the Union address on boosting job creation and economic growth at a time of high unemployment, underscoring the degree to which the economy could threaten his ability to pursue second-term priorities such as gun control, immigration policy and climate change. Obama also may use Tuesday’s prime-time address before a joint session of Congress to announce the next steps for concluding the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan by the end of 2014. Obama’s State of the Union marks his second high-profile speech to the nation in about three weeks, after his inaugural address Jan. 21 that opened his second term. White House aides see the two speeches as complementary, with Tuesday’s address aimed at providing specifics to back up some of the Inauguration Day’s lofty liberal rhetoric. The president previewed the address during a meeting Thursday with House Democrats and said he would speak “about making sure that we’re focused on job creation here in the United States of America.” Obama said he would try to accomplish that by calling for improvements in education, boosting clean energy production, and reducing the deficit in ways that don’t burden the

– a career choice that means he spends a large portion of his life away from his family. He said he spends as much time as possible with his wife and two children at their Crystal Lake home before soaring into the air to earn a paycheck. “It’s hard, but I try to stay as involved as I can,” Turner said. “There are a lot of times when I miss [family] things, but I don’t have a choice. There is always a little guilt in the back of your mind.” Turner is one of many parents who choose a life on the road as their profession, a choice that becomes a balancing act for couples who want a healthy and happy family atmosphere. “When we think about parents who are

Turner is a junior captain on a reserve schedule for American Airlines, so he doesn’t have a set flying schedule. He is given 12 pre-plotted days off each month and is on call the rest of the time. He can end up going anywhere, at anytime, for as much as six days at a time.

Construction season upon us In McHenry County, it seems, you never fully escape commuter hell. Anyone who drove Route 31 between Crystal Lake and McHenry during Thursday’s snowstorm can attest to that. OK, anyone who commuted anywhere Thursday evening likely could, too. That’s winter in northern Illinois. Or, that’s what winter used to be, anyway. But winter driving isn’t the focus of today’s ramblings. The other season here is. You know, construction. It likely won’t take much for you to recall the last one. Seemingly every north-south roadway in and near Crystal Lake was under construction last year. At one point, I thought the city had adopted road-construction orange as its official color. There was Pingree Road at Congress Parkway. Route 176 and Briarwood Road. Northshore Drive. Crystal Lake Avenue. Rakow Road. Various projects on Route 31. I could go on and on. For all the commuter complaining, it’s been well worth the frustration for the projects that are completed. I can attest to that on Rakow Road. I drive it almost every day. The free flow of traffic today is well worth two years of stop-and-go-and-stop, as was the case during the widening project. After all of last summer’s projects, you’d think that there couldn’t possibly be anything left to do this coming season. Of course, you’d be wrong. Crystal Lake Mayor Aaron Shepley detailed upcoming road projects Friday at the Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce’s annual State of the Community Luncheon. So what’s in store? Here are a few: • Route 14 will be widened to four lanes from Crystal Lake Avenue in Crystal Lake to Lake Shore Drive in Woodstock. Construction is to start late this summer, and will continue through

China tones down new year’s festivities BEIJING – Chinese New Year is traditionally a time for colorful and noisy displays of fireworks and generous-portioned banquets. This year, the festivities are likely to be a little more austere. Authorities have asked the public to set off fewer fireworks in Beijing to reduce pollution, a new antiextravagance drive has prompted government officials and state-owned companies to cancel their banquets at high-end hotels and a campaign against food waste is leading to half-portions in restaurants. Even ads for luxury goods were pulled ahead of Saturday’s opening of the seven-day holiday. All in all, China’s Lunar New Year is shaping up to be a Leaner New Year. Following a call by China’s new leader Xi Jinping to oppose waste, a village just outside of Beijing has canceled its mass dumpling festival that has been taking place for the past 30 years, involves hundreds of people and draws television cameras. “We planned to make

Villagers will make dumplings at home with their own families and they may feel like this is a new experience for them since they haven’t done it that way for such a long time.” Xi recently called for peo-

His words sparked off an antifood waste campaign in state media. He already had launched a crackdown against government extravagance, aimed at cutting corruption by officials, which angers the general public and threatens the party’s hold on power.

Global Times newspaper on Wednesday displayed a photo of workers at a power supply company in eastern Anhui province writing “cut down waste” slogans on balloons. The Beijing city government together with catering associations announced that the restaurant industry should reduce food waste. Ten companies with a total of 749 branches have responded with a plan to offer half-portions and encourage people to take away their leftovers, according to the Beijing News. A lot of people already are asking for the half portions, said a waitress at Xiabu Xiabu, one of the named chains, in a central Beijing office block. Bearing the brunt of Xi’s austerity drive, government officials and state-owned companies are stopping their banquets this year, and luxury hotels are missing out on the business. A lot of reservations are being cancelled, many of which were for government departments and state-owned companies, said a woman surnamed Zheng at the dining department of the Zhejiang Hotel in eastern Hangzhou city.

2014. • The 2-mile stretch of McHenry Avenue from Route 14 past Crystal Lake South High School to Rakow Road will be resurfaced this summer, with a right turn lane added at Barlina Road. Infrastructure improvements will be made near Nash Road, as well. • The Route 176 and Walkup Avenue project will resume and should be completed by early summer. • Route 176 will be realigned at Route 31 beginning this spring. The five-leg intersection will turn into four legs, with through lanes added on 176. Not on Shepley’s list but certainly of interest to local commuters is the Interstate 90 interchange project on Route 47. The bad news is that we can expect another summer of construction orange.

Report: High-speed rail boon for Midwest manufacturers By JASON KEYSER The Associated Press

A hearse carrying the casket of Hadiya Pendleton waits outside the Greater Harvest Missionary Baptist Church on Saturday in Chicago. Hundreds of mourners and dignitaries including first lady Michelle Obama packed the funeral service for a Chicago teen whose killing catapulted her into the nation’s debate over gun violence.

Chicago remembers teen victim of gun violence By JASON KEYSER and SARA BURNETT The Associated Press CHICAGO – Hundreds of mourners and dignitaries including first lady Michelle Obama packed the funeral Saturday for a Chicago honor student whose killing catapulted her into the nation’s debate over gun violence. Yet one speaker after another remembered 15-yearold Hadiya Pendleton not so much as a symbol but as a best friend, an excellent student with dreams of going to college and a sometimes goofy girl with a bright smile and big personality. They said she was a typical teen who

wanted to borrow her friends’ clothes and who never left home without her lip gloss. And to her mother, Pendleton was the daughter she tried to keep busy so she’d be beyond the reach of the seemingly endless gang violence in the nation’s third-largest city. “You don’t know how hard this really is, and those of you who do know how hard this really is, I’m sorry. I’m sorry,” Cleopatra Pendleton told the packed South Side church. “No mother, no father should ever have to experience this.” Hadiya Pendleton was shot and killed Jan. 29 as she stood with friends at a park about a mile from President Barack Obama’s Chi-

cago home in the Kenwood neighborhood. Just days before, the band majorette was among the performers during events for Obama’s inauguration. Police say Pendleton was an innocent victim in a gang-related shooting. Michelle Obama met privately with the family and some of Pendleton’s friends before the service. Obama, who grew up on Chicago’s South Side, then accompanied the girl’s mother to the open casket at the front of the Greater Harvest Baptist Church. She put her arm around Cleopatra Pendleton and patted her back as the woman threw her head back and wailed.

CHICAGO – Hundreds of Midwest manufacturers stand to benefit from a web of highspeed passenger rail routes emerging from Chicago’s rail hub, according to a report released by an environmental policy group that has fought to defend the use of billions in taxpayer money on such projects. The report released Friday by the Chicago-based Environmental Law & Policy Center found that 460 manufacturers in seven Midwest states are poised to reap new business, along with a dozen more highly visible companies that make rail cars and locomotives. Those additional supply-chain manufacturers make everything from seats, couplers and bolts to ceiling panels, interior

lighting and air horns. They also cut sheet metal, provide electronics and communications equipment, and supply track maintenance machinery. “What we’re seeing is that oldline Rust Belt manufacturers are making the equipment for modern new rail cars,” the group’s director, Howard Learner, told The Associated Press. He said the “extraordinary” number of companies they found in the supply chain was nearly double what he expected. “It shows that the federal investment in high-speed rail modernization is good for manufacturing jobs, good for economic growth and good for the environment,” Learner said. Critics of the high-speed rail projects set in motion by President Barack Obama in 2009 with the help of $8 billion in stimulus money say they

Jurors convict man for sex trafficking The ASSOCIATED PRESS SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Federal jurors have convicted a man accused of coercing women into the sex trade in southeastern South Dakota. Carl Campbell, 37, was convicted Friday of sex trafficking by force, fraud or coercion; two counts of sex trafficking of a child; interstate transportation for prostitution; and obstruction of sex trafficking enforcement, the Argus Leader reported. The jury deliberated just

under four hours before reaching its verdict. Sex trafficking by force and sex trafficking of a minor carry mandatory minimum sentences of 10 to 15 years in federal prison and a maximum sentence of life. A sentencing date has not been set. Campbell told Judge Karen Schreier that he wanted to appeal, saying he had wanted to introduce more evidence and call more witnesses but his counsel advised against it. “I feel that my case was mismanaged and not properly

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. Police in Indiana and Illinois are looking for a caller who claimed he had hostages, explosives and nerve gas, bringing officers to homes in two cities with the same name. The Herald-Times reported that police in Bloomington, Ind., and Bloomington, Ill., received the calls last week. The caller initially gave Illinois police a fictitious address, then told them it was in Indiana. Police who responded to the call in Indiana found a surprised resident who had been watching a movie while his 2-year-old daughter slept. The man who met police at the address in Illinois told officers he was being taunted by a disgruntled chat room user who was making prank calls using his name. A second call in the Illinois city brought a SWAT team to the scene.

Man charged in suburban hair salon robberies

WHEATON – Law enforcement authorities in DuPage County are accusing an Evanston man of allegedly robbing a tobacco store and three hair salons. State’s Attorney Robert Berlin said 41-year-old Jason Logsdon entered the businesses armed with a pellet gun, pointed it at the clerks and demanded money.

He fled each scene on foot. Logsdon was arrested Feb. 4. He is charged with four counts of armed robbery. He allegedly robbed a Bensenville tobacco store, two Lombard hair salons and one in Glen Ellyn. He also faces similar charges in Cook County. The DuPage County charges, on conviction, carry a maximum prison sentence of 120 years. Authorities also suspect Logsdon of more than a dozen robberies in Cook County.

Art sought to dissuade drinking by minors

CHICAGO – Teenagers are being asked to come up with artwork and slogans encouraging adults in Illinois not to provide alcohol to minors. The Illinois Liquor Control Commission said the deadline for entries is Feb. 15. The winning submissions will be displayed across the state later this year. It’s the commission’s first contest of its kind. It’s being called the “Don’t Be Sorry Youth Art Contest.” Winners will be selected by a panel that includes safety experts, police and school officials. It also includes members of industry associations, including the Associated Beer Distributors of Illinois and the Illinois Licensed Beverage Association.

represented,” Campbell said. Schreier told him he’d need to wait until after his sentencing to appeal. “I just want it on the record,” Campbell said. Campbell, a Chicago native, admitted to beating his former girlfriend but said the violence was related to alcohol and jealousy, not prostitution. He also said his ex-girlfriend and two other women who testified about being recruited into prostitution as minors made up their stories.

are expensive boondoggles. Opponents and skeptics include members of Congress, governors, policy experts and even some in the rail industry who doubt any of the planned routes will become profitable, especially given the political pressure to keep fares low. As a result, they argue, taxpayers will be on the hook for years to help provide subsidies to keep the projects up and running. Kristina Rasmussen, vice president of the Illinois Policy Institute, rejected the notion that the new report provided evidence that the high-speed rail program would ever be a genuine and sustainable driver of economic growth. She said the businesses named were merely benefiting from what she called the government’s shifting of taxpayer money from one industry to another.

8NATION BRIEF LAPD to reopen probe into ex-cop’s firing

BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. – The hunt for a former Los Angeles police officer suspected in three killings continued in snow-covered mountains Saturday as the LAPD’s chief said he would reopen the

disciplinary case that led to the fugitive’s firing. Officials in particular will re-examine the allegations by Christopher Dorner, 33, that his law enforcement career was undone by racist colleagues, Police Chief Charlie Beck said. While he promised to hear out

Dorner if he surrenders, Beck stressed that he was ordering a review of his 2007 case because he takes the allegation of racism in his department seriously. Authorities suspect Dorner in a series of attacks in Southern California over the past week that left three people dead,

including a police officer. Authorities said Dorner has vowed revenge against several former LAPD colleagues whom he blames for ending his career. The killings and threats have led police to provide protection to 50 families, Beck said.

New England begins big dig-out after snow The ASSOCIATED PRESS

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – New Englanders began the backbreaking job of digging out from as much as 3 feet of snow Saturday and emergency crews used snowmobiles to reach shivering motorists stranded overnight on New York’s Long Island after a howling storm swept through the Northeast. About 650,000 homes and businesses were left without electricity, and some could be cold and dark for days. Roads across the New York-to-Boston corridor of roughly 25 million people were impassable. Cars were entombed by drifts. Some people found the wet, heavy snow packed so high against their homes they couldn’t get their doors open. “It’s like lifting cement. They say it’s 2 feet, but I think it’s more like 3 feet,” said Michael Levesque, who was shoveling snow in Quincy, Mass., for a landscaping company. In Providence, where the drifts were 5 feet high and telephone lines encrusted with ice and snow drooped under the weight, Jason Harrison labored for almost three hours to clear his blocked driveway and front walk and still had more work to do. His snow-

blower, he said, “has already paid for itself.” At least five deaths in the U.S. were blamed on the overnight snowstorm, including an 11-year-old boy in Boston who was overcome by carbon monoxide as he sat in a running car to keep warm while his father shoveled Saturday morning. Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee cautioned that while the snow had stopped, the danger hadn’t passed: “People need to take this storm seriously, even after it’s over. If you have any kind of heart condition, be careful with the shoveling.” Blowing with hurricaneforce winds of more than 80 mph in places, the storm hit hard along the heavily populated Interstate 95 corridor between New York City and Maine. Milford., Conn., got 38 inches of snow, and Portland, Maine, recorded 31.9, shattering a 1979 record. Several communities in New York and across New England got more than 2 feet. Still, the storm was not as bad as some of the forecasts led many to fear, and not as dire as the Blizzard of ’78, used by longtime New Englanders as the benchmark by which all other winter storms are measured.

Texas legislature silent as immigration talks ramp up

Gov. Rick Perry delivers the state of the state address in the house chambers Jan. 29 at the state capitol, in Austin, Texas. nic group. In Congress, Republicans have softened their opposition to accommodating immigrants, and a bipartisan group of Senate negotiators unveiled a bill framework that includes a pathway to citizenship for those already in the U.S. so long as border security is beefed up. But in Texas, the party has been left speechless in the Capitol. GOP leaders find themselves caught between traditional supporters, who feel swamped by illegal immigrants and want tough action, and a surging Hispanic population. Minorities accounted for

nearly nine out of every 10 new Texas residents in the past decade, and the demographic shift could soon transform the politics in a state where Democrats haven’t won a statewide office since 1994. “There’s not nearly as much energy around it as there was,” said Republican state Rep. John Zerwas, acknowledging the collapse of hard-line immigration proposals such as his to require state agencies to compile the costs related to illegal immigrants. “I think you’re seeing that at the national level, and probably a good bit of that is trickling down to the state level.”

During a news conference to announce the arrest, police said they believe Jones, who was identified early in the investigation as a suspect, acted alone in the killing. They did not say how the girl died, citing an ongoing investigation. “We have evidence linking Jones to this homicide, and we believe at this time that there are no other suspects named in this case,” Fairfield Police Sgt.

Rebecca Belk told reporters. Jones worked at a barber shop less than two miles from his home. Police had the shop blocked off with crime-scene tape Friday afternoon. The seventh-grade girl was reported missing Jan. 31 by her guardian at a foster home in nearby Suisun City. The teen was last seen at a bus stop after taking a bus from her middle school.

8NATION BRIEF Arrest made in slaying of girl, 13, in California

FAIRFIELD, Calif. – Police said Friday they have arrested a barber in the death of a 13-yearold girl whose naked body was found last week in a Northern California park. Anthony Lamar Jones, 32, of Fairfield was taken into custody after police had him under round-the-clock surveillance as the main suspect in Genelle Renee Conway-Allen’s slaying.

Presidents Day Savings Event


By PAUL J. WEBER The Associated Press AUSTIN, Texas – With almost 2 million illegal immigrants and a 1,200-mile border with Mexico, Texas has more at stake than most states in the renewed push to overhaul the nation’s immigration system. Yet so far, Gov. Rick Perry and Republicans who control the Legislature have been sitting this debate out. They’re not resurrecting dozens of contentious immigration bills that roiled the statehouse in 2011. They’re not making the rounds on TV and radio to talk about President Barack Obama’s plan for legalizing immigrants. They’re not even saying the word “immigration.” When Perry delivered his State of the State recently – his first since his failed presidential run – glaringly absent in the 37-minute speech was any mention of the issue at all. The silence speaks to the sudden political shift in immigration since last fall’s presidential election, in which Hispanics voted Democratic by a nearly 3-to-1 margin and created a powerful incentive for Republicans to change their approach to this growing eth-

Ray Westman Owner, Verlo Mattress

People’s bodies change over time, but most of the time, their mattresses don’t. The result? Back and joint problems, poor sleep, stress and fatigue caused by lack of proper rest. But Ray Westman, owner of the Verlo Mattress Factory Stores in Crystal Lake, McHenry and Lake Geneva, is committed to helping customers find healthy, restful sleep, not only when their Verlo Mattress is brand new, but also when it’s years old. “Everyone changes and it’s not realistic to think you’re going to need exactly the same kind of mattress ten years from now that you need today. What we custom build for you now, can be adjusted or repaired to fit your needs in the future,” Westman said. Specializing in custom-built sleep systems, Wisconsin-based Verlo Mattress was founded in 1958 and now has more than forty franchise locations. Westman has been with Verlo Mattress since 1985, and purchased his first Verlo store in 1994. He now owns three showrooms, and a production facility in McHenry. In a time when mattresses are sold at big box and discount stores, in addition to mattress retailers, Westman is proud to offer something more than the typical cookie-cutter approach. “Your body, your comfort needs and sleep habits all influence the kind of sleep set we build for you,” he said. Your perfect sleep begins at the Verlo

showroom, or online with the Verlo Virtual Craftsman. “We’ll discuss who is using the mattress, a single person or a couple, a child or a teen, your preferred sleeping position, back or neck issues, and firmness preference. Often, the craftsman who will build your mattress is the person helping you on the sales floor,” Westman said. Using top quality materials, trained craftsmen construct your sleep system locally, the day before it is delivered. Bucking the trend toward shorter-life no-flip mattresses, Verlo still builds two-sided mattresses, something informed, quality-conscious customers appreciate. “The people who buy from us understand the continuing value of a customdesigned locally built product,” Westman said. In addition to innerspring mattresses, Verlo also carries Visco Foam, Gel Foam, VerloAIRE beds, sleep accessories to complete your custom sleep system, adjustable beds and futon sofa sleepers in a wide variety of styles. In a tight economy, Westman understands that customers’ budgets are stretched tighter than ever before. “Because customers have less disposable income, the reality means that we’re competing against other needs, ranging from a new refrigerator to car repair. Fortunately, our industry has done an excellent job of educating consumers on the importance of a good night’s sleep,” he said.

Defense Department: Flaws found in U.S. missile shield Officials believe they can overcome problems, move on By DESMOND BUTLER The Associated Press

WASHINGTON – Secret Defense Department studies cast doubt on whether a multibillion-dollar missile defense system planned for Europe can ever protect the U.S. from Iranian missiles as intended, congressional investigators say. Military officials say they believe they can overcome the problems and are moving forward with plans. But proposed fixes could prove difficult. One possibility has been ruled out as technically unfeasible. A second, relocating missile interceptors planned for Poland and possibly Romania to ships on the North Sea, could be diplomatically troublesome. The studies are the latest to highlight serious problems for a plan that has been criticized on several fronts. Republicans claim it was developed hastily in an attempt to appease Russia, which had opposed an earlier system.

But Russia is also critical of the plan, which it believes is really intended to counter its missiles. A series of governmental and scientific reports has raised questions about whether it would ever work as planned. At a time that the military faces giant budget cuts, the studies could lead Congress to reconsider whether it is worthwhile to spend billions for a system that may not fulfill its original goals. The classified studies were summarized in a briefing for lawmakers by the Government Accountability Office, Congress’ nonpartisan investigative and auditing arm, which is preparing a report. The GAO briefing, which was not classified, was obtained by The Associated Press. Military officials declined repeated requests to discuss the studies on the record, noting they were classified. Even speaking on condition of anonymity, officials declined to say whether the GAO accu-

rately had reported its conclusions. But the briefing had been reviewed by several Defense Department officials and the revisions they requested were incorporated. There was no indication they had objected to how the studies had been described. The officials who spoke to the AP emphasized that the interceptor intended to protect the United States is in the early stages of development and its capabilities are not known. They said the U.S. already is protected by other missile defense systems. Even if European-based interceptors are unable to directly defend the U.S., they say they would protect not only European allies and U.S. troops stationed on the continent, but also U.S. radars there that are necessary for all U.S. missile defense plans. Missile defense has been a contentious issue since President George W. Bush sought to base long-range interceptors in Central Europe to stop missiles from Iran.

8WORLD BRIEFS Egypt court: Block access to YouTube for a month CAIRO – A Cairo court on Saturday ordered the government to block access to the video-sharing website YouTube for 30 days for carrying an anti-Islam film that caused deadly riots across the world. Judge Hassouna Tawfiq ordered YouTube blocked for carrying the film, which he described as “offensive to Islam and the Prophet [Muhammad].” He made the ruling in the Egyptian capital where the first protests against the film erupted last September before spreading to more than 20 countries, killing more than 50 people. The ruling however can be appealed, and based on precedent, might not be enforced. A spokeswoman for YouTube’s parent company, Google, said in a statement that the firm had “received nothing from the judge or government related to this matter.”

Troops, rebels clash over Damascus highway

BEIRUT – Syrian troops backed by warplanes battled rebels for control of a key highway in Damascus Saturday, a day after opposition forces cut the strategic artery as part of what they say are efforts to lay the groundwork for an eventual assault on the heavily defended capital. Rebels have been on the offensive in Damascus since launching a series of attacks on government positions on Wednesday. They brought their fight to within a mile of the heart of the capital Friday, seizing army checkpoints and cutting a key highway as they pressed their campaign for the city, the seat of President Bashar Assad’s power.

6.9 quake hits Colombia, no injuries reported

BOGOTA, Colombia – A powerful but deep earthquake shook a broad swath of Colombia and Ecuador on Saturday, sending frightened people fleeing into the streets, but no serious injuries or major damage were reported. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake had a magnitude of 6.9.It was centered about 7 miles from the Colombian town of Pasto and 92 miles below the surface. The quake was felt in the Colombian capital of Bogota, some 340 miles to the northeast, and across much of neighboring Ecuador.

8NATION BRIEF Ohio mayor resigns over accusations of gay slurs

CINCINNATI – The mayor of a southeastern Ohio town has resigned over accusations that she repeatedly called a gay police officer “queer” in front of his colleagues and created a hostile work environment. Jackie Welker, council president in the Village of Pomeroy, told The Associated Press that Mayor Mary McAngus, 78, submitted a letter of resignation

Saturday. Police Chief Mark Proffitt told the council that McAngus referred to Officer Kyle Calendine as “queer” in front of other officers and dispatchers. He said that at one point she said, “I don’t like a queer working for the village.” Proffitt had warned the council that McAngus’ alleged comments could open the village to a lawsuit.

Sunday, February 10, 2013 • Page A9 NEWS President says he will address taxes, looming budget cuts


Continued from page A1 middle class, the poor or the elderly. While those priorities may be cheered by some Democrats, they’re certain to be met with skepticism or outright opposition from many congressional Republicans, especially in the GOPcontrolled House. The parties are at odds over ways to reduce the deficit. Republicans favor spending cuts; Obama prefers a combination of spending cuts and increasing tax revenue.

The president said he would address taxes and looming across-the-board budget cuts, known as the sequester, in the speech. The White House and Congress have pushed back the automatic cuts once, and Obama wants to do it again in order to create an opening for a larger deficit reduction deal. “I am prepared, eager and anxious to do a big deal, a big package that ends this governance by crisis where every two weeks or every two months or every six months we are threatening this hardwon recovery,” he said last

week. The economy has rebounded significantly from the depths of the recession and has taken a back seat for Obama since he won re-election in November. He’s instead focused on campaigns to overhaul the nation’s patchwork immigration laws and enact stricter gun control measures following the massacre of 20 schoolchildren in Newtown, Conn., in December. The president also raised expectations for action this year on climate change after devoting a significant amount of time to the issue

in his address at the inauguration. But the unemployment rate is persistently high at 7.9 percent, economic growth slowed last quarter and consumer confidence is falling, so the economy could upend Obama’s plans to pursue a broader domestic agenda in his final four years in office. Tony Fratto, who worked in the White House during President George W. Bush’s second term, said Obama has to show the public that he’s still focused on the economy before he can get their full support for his other proposals.

‘It has been hard, but it is all I have ever known’ • TRAVELING

Continued from page A1 When he gets the call, mainly on weekends, he is expected to get to the airport within about two hours. “I’ve always got a halfpacked bag with me,” Turner said. “When we have family things planned, we generally take two cars.” When he is home, Turner can be found giving his stayat-home wife of almost 25 years a break by taking over carpooling duties, helping coach his son’s hockey team or taking his daughter to pom squad practice. “The big thing is that we do a lot of family stuff together,” he said. “It really sticks with the kids when you are not around. I’ve got to give all the credit to my wife.” His daughter, Lexi Turner, doesn’t know any other lifestyle. When he’s home, the 14year-old spends as much time with him as she can. When he’s away, she tries to talk to him at least once a day, if not through text messaging. “It has been hard, but it is all I have ever known,” said Lexi Turner, a freshman at Crystal Lake South High School. “We are a tight-knit family, and when he is home, we are all together. The traveling almost makes it better because we are not always on top of each other and have space.” She also credited her mother, who at times acts as a single mom. “She is amazing,” Lexi Turner said. “My mom has to do everything when he is away.”

The Other Side

Jen Arendt is a stay-athome mother of two whose husband has been traveling for work for more than a decade. Her husband handles restoration work for areas and buildings that have water damage, such as from hurricanes or floods, or when sprinklers go off. He also helps provide temporary power and climate control. The majority of his travel comes during emergency situations, such as when he was sent to New Jersey for two weeks after superstorm Sandy or to New Orleans for five weeks after Hurricane Katrina. “We have a pretty good system down and take the good with the bad,” said Arendt, 40. “He understands and recognizes that it is more work for me, and I try and run things smoothly with the kids so that when he is on the road, he doesn’t have to stress out.” When their children were younger, it was harder for the couple’s son and daughter to

“It creates a stronger campus-type setting, sets the building farther away from existing residents, and it is intended to create a better experience for Centegra patients.” Dave Johnson, Village manager jobs. Centegra’s third hospital should be fully operational by winter 2016. The decision to move the facility away from Haligus and Reed roads also has created an opportunity for the Huntley Park District.

understand why daddy was gone so much, Arendt said. As they have gotten older, a series of rituals has helped them better understand. Those consistencies include talking to them every morning and night when he is on the road, always bringing them home a souvenir or memento from where he has been, and using FaceTime, which is similar to Skype, to see their familiar faces. “I’ve known my husband for 30 years and we know as a couple that this is what he does,” said Arendt, a Fox River Grove resident. “We support each other and try to explain to them that even though it is hard, this is how dad makes money.” Open communication and rituals such as those used by the Arendt family is the key to easing the anxiety in their children, Sikora said. “It’s important to set up some rituals to connect with the child,” he said. “It could be daily or a couple times a day. We certainly live in a society that has numerous ways of maintaining that connection.” Besides applications such as FaceTime or Skype, other ways include having parents record bedtime stories or prayers before they leave so the child can hear them, and speaking daily on the phone while the parent is gone.

The Trade-offs

Crystal Lake resident Ron Eberle has worked as a national account executive for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois for 20 years. The 46-year-old makes at least 12 overnight trips annually, as well as daily trips throughout the area. He and his wife have three children: 22- and 16-year-old daughters, and a 13-year-old son. “I wouldn’t say that [traveling] has been a hard strain on the family, but you’re obviously going to miss some milestones,” Eberle said. “The kids understand why dad goes away.” One of the ways to help the children understand is first to communicate the need for travel and then why they have to do it, Sikora said. “You don’t want to confuse them about why mommy or daddy goes away,” he said. “They also need to know that they will be becoming back. The idea is to limit anxiety at all costs.” Helping them understand has become easier for Eberle and his family as technology has evolved. They constantly use text messaging and Facebook when he is on the road, and his job doesn’t require any traveling on the weekends. “Technology has really softened the blow,” Eberle said. “And come Friday, the weekend is for family.”

As for the early design changes, Huntley’s top village administrator is fine with the hospital moving closer to Centegra’s existing buildings. “It creates a stronger campus-type setting, sets the building farther away from existing residents, and it is intended to create a better experience for Centegra patients,” Johnson said. Residents also will have a chance to give their opinions on the new hospital. Centegra and the village have planned informational meetings Feb. 19 and March 6 for residents interested in learning more about the project.

Near Timbuktu, bodies of 2 show reprisal killings The ASSOCIATED PRESS

TIMBUKTU, Mali – The bodies are buried here, in the side of a dune less than a mile outside this desert capital, dumped out of sight in a forgotten and uninhabited zone. Except the wind undressed the grave. It threw off the blanket of yellow sand to reveal a white piece of clothing. Soon the children of the shepherds who spend their days roaming the dunes with their flocks began talking about the two men buried there. By the time journalists were led to the shallow grave 11 days after the two were last seen, the desert dwellers knew their entire biography: their names, their professions, the fact that they had been arrested by Malian soldiers on the

same day that the French took control of Timbuktu from Islamic extremists. Most importantly, they knew their ethnic group – both were Arab. Their deaths, as pieced together by The Associated Press from interviews with family members, residents and witnesses, as well as from an examination of the bodies, strongly suggest the two were taken away and shot dead by Malian forces, in reprisal against the city’s Arab minority. Ever since al-Qaida-linked extremists seized control of Mali’s northern half last year, the international community has discussed launching a military intervention to free the occupied territory. For almost as long, the United Nations as well as the United States has urged caution, in part over worries that

Mali’s abuse-prone military could carry out acts of revenge against the ethnic minorities which were associated with the extremists – including Arabs. Despite these warnings, France unilaterally launched a military operation exactly one month ago to take back the north, after the al-Qaidalinked fighters began pushing southward. The French swept through northern villages and towns, accompanied by Malian army troops, and liberated Timbuktu on Jan. 28. It was around 10 that morning, as French troops in armored personnel carriers still were basking in the cheers of the crowds welcoming them, that Malian soldiers in pickup trucks sped up to the Nour ElMoubin Madrassa, a Quranic school.

Amid port concerns, a surge in smuggling The Associated Press

SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic – The relationship between a U.S. Senator from New Jersey and a wealthy political benefactor has highlighted gaps in port security in the Dominican Republic, which has become the top transit point for drugs in the Caribbean. And the situation appears to be getting worse. Authorities in the Dominican Republic seized 9 tons of cocaine last year, the third consecutive record, according to the country’s national drug control agency. In January alone, they seized another 3 tons off the country’s southern coast. “It will probably be a record this year as well,” Pedro Janer, the acting head of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s Caribbean Division, said in an interview. The DEA praises the efforts of the Dominican Republic in fighting drugs, and U.S. backing has included the use of an aerial surveillance drone and support of ships and aircraft based in nearby Puerto Rico. But U.S. officials have also repeatedly complained about the need for more security in the ports, where there is only a single large-scale scanner, on loan from the U.S., to search the interior of cargo containers. Among the critics: U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez of New Jersey who has raised the issue in three Congressional hearings. “I often think about this in a very significant way in my own home state because we know that some of those container ships laden with cocaine, when they leave the Dominican Republic, where do they sail to? Well they very often end up in the

Port of Newark and Elizabeth which is the mega-port of the East Coast in my home state of New Jersey,” he said in a December 2011 hearing. His interest has drawn public scrutiny since federal agents recently searched the Florida offices of his largest campaign contributor, Dr. Salomon Melgen, who in August 2011 had purchased a company with a contract to provide increased security at Dominican ports. The 10-year contract, valued at $500 million, was signed in 2002 but suspended two years later by the Dominican government and is tied up in the courts. Menendez’s staff has acknowledged he talked to the State Department and other federal officials about the port deal, and said that’s not unusual because he has regularly raised concerns if American companies are not being treated fairly in foreign countries. “The fact that someone is a donor does not do away with the right or the opportunity to consider whether something is correct or incorrect, to ask questions, raise concerns,” Menendez said Thursday in an interview with the Spanish-language television network Univision. Separately, the senator said on Thursday that his office contacted U.S. health agencies to help resolve a Medicare billing dispute for Melgen, but contended he did not improperly intervene. He earlier acknowledged that he had failed to pay for trips he took on the doctor’s private plane and reimbursed about $58,500 for the visits to the Dominican Republic. The port security contract already was controversial in the Dominican Republic.

Just over a year ago, Illinois Supreme Court Chief Justice Thomas Kilbride announced the launch of a pilot project to allow For the record still and video cameras in courtOpening courtrooms up to rooms. extended media coverage proMany judicial vides taxpayers with a better circuit districts understanding of the judicial immediately system. volunteered to be a part of it. One year since the announcement, 25 counties in nine judicial circuits throughout Illinois have allowed cameras in the courtroom. Dozens of criminal cases have been recorded, from small counties where a serial killer was being tried to large suburban counties such as DuPage, where Schaumburg police officers are charged with robbing drug dealers. Lake County officials expect their pilot program to be running by next month, and Kendall County court officials have a test case planned. A pilot program has been approved for DeKalb County, and Kane County applied for the program in May. The cameras are unobtrusive. Professional media representatives are acting professionally. Judges are reporting virtually no problems with the pilot programs, and judicial district officials still are tinkering with improvements. While the Illinois Supreme Court has set up many sensible guidelines – such as protecting the identity of victims of sexual abuse, juveniles and jurors – they have left a great deal of discretion on details to local judges and circuits, since each courthouse and county is different. A one-size-fits-all approach wouldn’t be appropriate. The first public meeting to discuss the pilot program for McHenry County’s 22nd Judicial Circuit was held Feb. 1. Members of the local media, including several Northwest Herald employees, attended. For the most part, judges and lawyers who attended the meeting were outspokenly opposed to the concept of allowing cameras in the courtrooms, even though they conceded that the state Supreme Court eventually will mandate them. Reaction ranged from sensible concern to downright paranoia. In nearly all instances, the novelty of cameras in the courtroom was overstated. Just across the McHenry County border to the north, Wisconsin has allowed cameras in courtrooms since 1978. Have you heard of any great miscarriages of justice or instances of clamoring from our northern neighbors that cameras are a scourge to be eradicated? Of course not. Head west. Iowa has allowed cameras since 1980, and Missouri since 1992. A pilot program launched in 2007 in Indiana flopped because it was too restrictive, requiring permission from all parties in a criminal or civil trial. While McHenry County courts are not known as judicial trailblazers in Illinois – slow to adopt specialty courts such as drug and mental health courts – we were surprised at the reaction from the judges and officers of the court who addressed the issue Feb. 1. We don’t suspect that they speak for everyone associated with the courts or the public, but any steps forward will require their participation. We’re puzzled as to why McHenry County officials feel this county is so much different from those surrounding us, and why they believe this county couldn’t handle the change. While there’s no great rush, the current attitude isn’t doing the judicial circuit or the public any good. We urge lawyers and judges to discuss their concerns with colleagues from jurisdictions that allow cameras, and not close their minds to what we think eventually will happen.

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Thanks for help

To the Editor: I would like to thank Huntley’s police and fire departments for their help in unlocking a door for which there was no key. We are fortunate to have our shop in Huntley. The fire and police departments provide many valuable services to residents and business owners. We should be grateful every day for their community support.

Sensible approach

To the Editor: Marc Munaretto will be a great asset to Algonquin Township. We need someone who will better manage township finances and who will make Algonquin Township a better place. He has been extremely valuable serving on the McHenry County Board, and has been the voice as chairman of its Finance Committee for several years. This has helped the county being listed as one of the most financially stable county boards in Illinois. Marc will bring a sensible, nononsense approach to the office of Algonquin’s township supervisor, and that is the reason I will cast my vote for him. Larry Wheeler

lawfully incurred debts. This means a failure to raise the debt ceiling, to prevent new borrowing, does not and cannot put America’s current creditors at risk. Second, despite Obama’s claims that Congress must raise the debt ceiling to pay the bills it has incurred, the obligations protected as “debts” by the 14th Amendment do not include entitlement programs such as Medicare and Social Security. These programs are not part of the “public debt,” which consist of loans that are made to the federal government through bonds/ financial instruments. Third, assertions made by Nancy Pelosi that the president can rely on Section 4 as a pretext for raising the debt ceiling by himself are incorrect and constitutionally dangerous. Section 4 grants no power whatsoever to the president, but the 14th Amendment grants Congress the “power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.” Remember our children in understanding that spending cuts are necessary, given Obama’s unwillingness to implement any meaningful spending cuts and his clear preference for limitless borrowing from China.

Three myths

To the Editor: First, Congress’ failure to raise the debt ceiling will cause a default on national debt. Contrary to President Barack Obama’s claims, Congress’ refusal to permit new borrowing by raising the debt ceiling will not trigger a default on America’s outstanding public debt with consequences for our credit rating and the world’s financial system. Section 4 of the 14th Amendment provides that “the validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law ... shall not be questioned”; this prevents Congress from rejecting

To the Editor: A zoning change to allow a 24-hour gas station at the northwest corner of Route 31 and Pearl Street should not be approved by the McHenry City Council. Traffic on Pearl Street will increase, and Pearl Street is used to get to Route 31 (in front of St. Mary’s Church) from Green Street. Pearl Street is a two-lane street. There are no dedicated right- or left-turn lanes. The addition of a 24-hour gas station will affect the residential neighborhood as the proposed property is next to several houses Lighting will be on at night. Noise will be an issue.

Dedication is evident

To the Editor: I am writing to voice my support for Pam Fender for Grafton Township supervisor. Pam’s dedication to Huntley, McHenry County, and Grafton Township is evident in everything she does. She has been active and involved in the community for years, and everyone who comes into contact with her has nothing but positive things to say about her. Pam will bring constancy, reliability, intelligence, and rational thought to the supervisor position, which is exactly what we need after years of negativity and contention from Linda Moore. My family will be voting for Pam Fender on Feb. 26 and on April 9. Please join us.

ery” features a shrinking GDP! With domestic producers capable of harvesting our natural resources to the point of energy independence, regulations and restrictions force elevated gas prices. And finally, the U.S. Senate has failed to pass a budget for four years but supports borrowing a third of the government’s annual expenditures. Beam me up, Scottie. Take me back to the America whose representatives reflect the actions and desires of the people. American banks are flush with cash as the people set aside savings rather than expose themselves to expanded debt. Meanwhile, the Obama administration has expanded our national debt by trillions of dollars and has no spending reduction plans in the works. My America, my neighbors, my friends and my family work hard every day and use “don’t spend what you don’t have, whittle down your debt” logic. Our representative to Congress, Peter Roskam, believes the same. He helped pass the “No budget, no pay” Act that attempts to force our legislators to deal with our very real financial problems and bring debt reduction into the spending game plan. Roskam offers common-sense solutions in the nonsensical, forward-driven congressional world. It’s time to cut up the credit card, pay the bills, and support domestic financial growth. It’s an alien principle unknown in Washington, D.C., called personal responsibility. Bruce Sauer

Jailed lawyer hit with lawsuit Suit: Smiekel gave careless and negligent representation By SARAH SUTSCHEK WOODSTOCK – A man whose former attorney tried to have him killed has filed a civil lawsuit against the attorney, who recently was sentenced to 8½ years in federal prison. Jason W. Smiekel pleaded guilty to solicitation of mur-

der using interstate commerce for what prosecutors said were at least three attempts to have Brian Hegg killed. The final attempt involved an undercover federal agent, and Smiekel was arrested in August 2011. Hegg wad Smiekel’s client in a paternity case, and Smiekel eventually had a relationship with – and be-

came engaged to – Hegg’s exgirlfriend. A t Smiekel’s sentencing hearing, experts Jason W. testified that Smiekel he had a severe anxiety disorder that made him act irrationally and left him in

great fear of Hegg. According to the lawsuit filed by Hegg this week in McHenry County court, Smiekel “carelessly and negligently” represented Hegg at a time when Smiekel was “drinking heavily, experiencing anxiety bouts and receiving mental health treatment.” Smiekel advised Hegg,

among other things, that it was a “waste of time and money” to request joint custody and then created a conflict of interest when he formed a romantic relationship with Hegg’s ex. Smiekel also gave her privileged information, Hegg said in the lawsuit.

Inaugural Relay for Life in Woodstock to kick off April 20 By SHAWN SHINNEMAN WOODSTOCK – Organizers have high hopes for Woodstock’s first Relay For Life, the overnight walk to raise funds for the American Cancer Society. The event, which starts late April 20 and runs through the next morning, will be at Woodstock North High School, 3000 Raffel Road. Students from the school are helping organize the event. “We had a couple teams that did our Huntley relay, and one of the students thought

that it’d be a great idea to do one at the high school,” said Mike Jostes, a community manager with American Cancer Society. The cancer society has several Relay For Life venues within the county. At least one member from each team always is walking during Relay For Life, while the others camp out surrounding the track. The event has raised more than $4 billion since it began in Tacoma, Wash., in 1985. Participants are required to donate $10 to sign up. Incentives, such as a T-shirt for raising $100, help drive donations.

The money raised goes toward cancer research, programs to allow high school students to sit in on cancer research, wigs and makeup for cancer patients, medical bill payments for struggling patients and families, and gas for volunteers who take patients to and from treatments, Jostes said. The events usually draw between 200 and 400 participants, he said. “Our goal is $35,000 raised,” Jostes said. To register for Relay For Life of Woodstock, visit www.

Aim is to learn about district’s issues • D-26

Continued from page B1 “I don’t feel it’s in my best interest to open myself up to [Hillman] being nasty to me,” Jette said. “Conducting a discussion for candidates for school board in a bar is kind of odd,” Jette added. District 26 Parents with a Voice is a group of concerned community members, stakeholders and parents who are trying to bring about positive change in the school district, according to its website. It has questioned school district decisions in the recent years. Hillman said, however, the primary objective of the forum is for people to learn about the issues facing the district. Audience members will be able to ask questions. “We’ll either answer them

“[The Forum is] an opportunity to get to know them and see what they stand for.” Ken Hillman Forum moderator or try to get an answer and follow up,” Hillman said. The secondary objective will be to get know the candidates running, he said. Hillman said he will do his best to make the candidates feel comfortable. “I personally believe I have an obligation to setting this up to be fair to any candidate who wants to show up,” he said. “It’s an opportunity to get to know them and see what they stand for,” Hillman added. However, Hillman has endorsed three candidates:

Epstein, Crick and Ritter. Hillman said those three candidates have taken the time to explain their positions and what direction they would like to go. “I believe my passion to create an active and knowledgeable community with a voice that helps create the type of necessary change we need far exceeds my desire to have ‘my guys’ win and as such I think it is important to have the community exposed to as many new candidates as possible,” Hillman wrote in an email promoting the event. Hillman said in emails inviting the public to the forum that the event would be more on the issues, but will be an opportunity for candidates to introduce themselves. “I really want it to something for people comfortable going to,” Hillman said. “This is for them.”

Lawsuit seeks more than $50K in damages • SMIEKEL

Continued from page B1 Hegg said he did not know about the relationship with his ex until February 2011. Smiekel withdrew as Hegg’s attorney the following month, after which he appeared in court with Hegg’s ex and drafted legal documents on her behalf, Hegg said. As a result, Hegg said he lost the money he paid to his ex in the parentage case, as well as

money he paid to the law firm, and he was unable to establish as close of a relationship with his son as he had wanted. Hegg said that he suffered emotional trauma stemming from the murder-for-hire scheme and the strain on his relationship with his son. He is seeking more than $50,000. The lawsuit also names Terry Mohr, whom Hegg said he initially asked to represent him in 2008. Smiekel worked for Mohr’s firm, which at one point was Mohr, Hill & Smiekel.

Mohr told Hegg that he would be primarily responsible for the case, but Smiekel would help, ensuring that Smiekel was a “competent and capable attorney.” The lawsuit claims that Mohr failed to supervise Smiekel and “fostered a law firm environment where it was acceptable to have personal romantic relationships with adversaries of current and former clients.” Citing the pending litigation, Mohr declined to comment.

Visit to remind lawmakers there is support in McHenry • CHURCH

Continued from page B1 Universalist Congregation, said the gathering will be a “reinforced visit” to remind lawmakers that there is support for marriage equality in McHenry County. Murfin said they will present both lawmakers with a

brief petition showing community support for same-sex marriage. There is not likely to be rallying or marching, Murfin said. “Marriage equality is a very big deal in the Unitarian Universalist church,” said the Rev. Don Larsen, minister emeritus of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation. “Some of our members and

ministers are gay and lesbian. It’s a very important issue that we’ve been focused on for a long time.” Members of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation and PFLAG are scheduled to arrive at Althoff’s office, 5400 W. Elm St. in McHenry, at 2:30 p.m., and Franks’ office, 1193 S. Eastwood Drive in Woodstock, at 3:30 p.m.

Gemell was born March 26, 1921, in Kauhas, Lithuania. He enrolled at the medical school of the University of Lithuania in fall 1939 but on account of the war, which broke out in Europe, he was able to graduate only in 1950 with the MD degree from the University of Munich in Germany. He came to the United States in August 1950, qualifying as an immigrant under the Displaced Persons Act of 1947. Here he took his radiology specialty training at the Ohio State University Hospital in Columbus and was certified by the American Board of Radiology in 1958. At this time, he also became a citizen of the United States. This same year, he was offered a position with the radiology department at the Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago as assistant director, where he was mainly involved with the radiology physicians’ training program. In 1963, he was invited to join the McHenry Medical Group in McHenry as chief radiologist, also providing services to the recently established McHenry Hospital, the precursor of today’s Centegra. At McHenry, he was instrumental in organizing the first full service radiology facility in the area and for several years he also was the only full-time certified radiologist in residence in the county. He served two terms as the president of the medical-dental staff at the McHenry Hospital from 1975 to 1977. At the same time, he provided consulting radiology services at Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago, the medical department of the corporate headquarters of the Standard Oil Company of Indiana and finally the Cook County Medical Examiners office, in association with Dr. Robert Stein, chief medical examiner of Cook County. He also was a member of the Task Force, Health Planning Agency of Kane, Lake and McHenry counties, from 1975 to 1977. In 1978, he joined the radiology staff at Sherman Hospital in Elgin,

where he became the lead radiologist of the Crystal Lake Ambutal, a Sherman Hospital outpatient subsidiary. He retired from full-time practice in 1986 but continued to provide part-time consulting services at Sherman Hospital, Memorial Hospital of Woodstock and St. Joseph’s in Elgin. He completely retired in 2001 at age 80. His professional memberships included the American Medical Association, the Radiological Society of North America and the American College of Radiology.

BOYS BASKETBALL: D-C 47, huntley 38

D-C ends Huntley’s division win streak By JOE STEVENSON

CARPENTERSVILLE – DundeeCrown had grown weary of the same old story, the one where it plays Huntley tight for most of a game, only to have the Red Raiders find ways to win at the end. So the Chargers wrote a new ending. Seniors Dylan Kissack and Brandon Rodriguez, who had been on the bitter losing end against Huntley more than any of their teammates, each hit a 3-pointer late in the fourth quarter as D-C defeated the Raiders, 47-38, on Saturday night. D-C’s victory not only kept the Raiders from clinching the Fox Brandon Valley Conference ValRodriguez ley Division in boys basketball, but ended their 29-game division winning streak. “We knew we were neck-and-neck with them, but they always made the bigger plays,” Rodriguez said. “We got the big rebounds tonight, made the big defensive plays. We all played our hearts out. It’s been a long run, we finally got them.” After the handshake line, D-C’s fervent crowd rushed the floor to dance and sing with the players. Huntley (15-7 overall, 9-1 FVC Valley) had not lost a division game since Jacobs beat the Raiders, 49-46, on Jan. 14, 2011. D-C (17-5, 8-2) had not beaten Huntley since a 36-34 victory Feb. 12, 2010. “[The streak] must have been something good to have somebody come out and celebrate when they didn’t really win anything,” Huntley coach Marty Manning said. The Raiders had fought from behind the entire fourth quarter, but cut D-C’s lead to 36-34 with 3:15 remaining on T.J. Adams’ 3. Kissack then stuck a 3 from the left corner with 2:17 to go before Rodriguez came up big on both ends. First, Rodriguez stole the ball from Bryce Only, then, as he trailed the play, he received the ball and nailed another 3 for a 42-34 lead. The Chargers’ fans sensed their team finally had done it. “I kind of knew we needed a little answer there after they cut it to two,” said Kissack, who led D-C with 14 points and seven rebounds. “I caught it and was ready to shoot. It feels great to end it. Kudos to Huntley, they’re always a tough team to play against.”

Dozen qualify for state

Hanselmann among trio of Trojans heading to Champaign next week By ROB SMITH BARRINGTON – Cary-Grove junior Logan Hanselmann never had stepped on a wrestling mat before his freshman year. Three years later, Hanselmann qualified for the state finals with a fourth-place finish at 120 pounds in the Barrington Sectional on Saturday. The accomplishment is even more remarkable because Hanselmann missed last season with a shoulder injury. “Coming in as a freshman, I didn’t know anything,” Hansel-

More online Watch our the video preview of the Prairie Ridge co-op gymnastics team’s trip to state, plus check out the newest boys and girls basketball power rankings, at mann said. “I’m really happy with myself.” Hanselmann was one of three Trojans to qualify for the state

meet, along with Michael Cullen, who won the 113-pound title, and Mike Underwood, who finished third at 138. Cullen, whose family encouraged Hanselmann to take up wrestling, said getting to state with only two years of wrestling experience is remarkable. “I was super proud of him,” Cullen said. “I give him all the credit in the world for doing that.” C-G coach Ryan Ludwig said the accomplishment is reflective of the commitment and the work ethic Hanselmann has. “[Hanselmann’s] a tough, hardnosed kid,” Ludwig said. “Every single day he works hard.” In his championship match, Cullen defeated New Trier’s Collin Kenyon by a 11-1 major decision. The

lopsided win gives him confidence heading to Champaign next weekend. “Being able to dominate in a sectional final gives me a little swagger going into state,” Cullen said. “At the same time, you’ve got to be humble and not get too overconfident.” Underwood earned his thirdplace finish with a first-period pin in the consolation semifinals against Lake Zurich’s Brandon Arteaga and an overtime pin in the third-place match against Harlem’s Jake Messink. “[Underwood’s] a kid that puts everything he has into the practice room,” Ludwig said. “I’m so proud he made it down state.”

Rockets anxious to stretch out in new, expanded gymnasium By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO

RICHMOND – Hammers pounded away, the sound echoing off the walls. Separated by a ceiling to floor tarp, Richmond-Burton’s varsity girls basketball players, taking turns, stepped to the line to attempt free throws as noise resonated in the background. R-B coach Courtney LuDois and the Rockets have endured these daily distractions throughout the season, but those disruptions are about to become a potential turning point for R-B. After months of work and planning, R-B’s new

gymnasium, which is about 20,000-square feet, is expected to be finished this spring. School officials asked that the facility not be photographed until it was complete. Once complete, the Rockets will have an additional 10 basketball hoops, three basketball courts – including one for varsity – and ample space. “It’s neat to kind of see it all come together,” athletic director Pat Elder said. “For our winter sports, and beginning practices of spring sports, it’s going to allow scheduling to be a much better process. They’re going to be able to get more time and do more things.”

The expanded space – the area used to be an empty grass lot – ends the Rockets’ use of only one basketball court. At one point this season, seven teams needed to use the court on the same day: three boys basketball teams, three girls basketball teams and the volleyball team. “I think the kids are excited to play in a nice gym,” LuDois said. “They get pumped up. They’re ready to take ownership of it, especially since it’s Monica Maschak – new. It’s going to be theirs. They’re going to want to pro- The Richmond-Burton girls varsity basketball team practices on the school’s single court during its one-hour time slot before the boys team’s practice Wednesday in Richmond.

fox valley conference BOYS SWIMMING MEET

Area swimmers confident going into sectional Cary-Grove co-op wins FVC crown By PATRICK MASON

WOODSTOCK – Adam Steinken had to look at the scoreboard a few times to make sure the illuminated 48.46 next to his lane was correct. He even took off his goggles and looked again before he allowed himself to believe it. It was real and it was an alltime best for the Woodstock

co-op senior as he edged out Cary-Grove’s Tyler King in the 100-yard freestyle Saturday in the Fox Valley Conference Meet. “Today felt really good and I got best times in everything I swam, like best ever,” Steinken said. The senior also had a best time in the 100 breaststroke. “I’m not tapered yet and I haven’t shaved, so this is a good sign. I really want to make state. It’s my No. 1 goal.” The state-cut for the 100 freestyle is 48.09. “He’s been really going crazy in the 100 free,” Blue Streaks coach Ian Shanahan said of Steinken. “He didn’t swim it all last year or the two previous years. He just kind of

started mid-year and he’s really had a lot of success in it, so we just kept putting him in it.” Cary-Grove co-op won the meet with 452 points followed by Jacobs co-op (336), Huntley ( 3 2 5 ) , W o o dstock co-op (322) and McHenry (231). Many swimmers left the Josh DeDina meet feeling confident heading into next week’s sectional at Barrington High as the meet produced many best times. Josh DeDina of Jacobs coop placed first in the 100 breastroke with a time of 1:00.48, which is under the state cut.

class 2 antioch wrestling sectional

Tigers advance 6 to state By ANDREW HANSEN

ANTIOCH – Last season, a packed lineup forced Crystal Lake Central’s Andrew Marsden out of regionals. Now a sophomore, Marsden was one of six Tigers to punch his ticket for the state tournament in Champaign at the Class 2A Antioch Sectional. Marsden, ranked second, defeated third-ranked Michael Maduko of Montini, 6-2, for the 170-pound championship. Marsden wrestled defensively, waited for Maduko’s mistakes and hit a spladle in the final seconds. “When they make a mistake, then I take my chance,” Marsden said. “It feels pretty good.” Kyle Fugiel (145) finished in second for the Tigers, Mike Zalesco won a 9-0 major decision for third place at 160, Justin Ellman (182) took second on injury default, Brent Pfaff took fourth at 195, and Darwin Stone recorded a fall in 2:30

for third place at 220. Central coach Justen Lehr was impressed with the wrestling of Pfaff and Stone. Pfaff weighed in at 176 for 195-pound class, while Stone came in at 191 for 220. Garrett Sutton of Richmond-Burton captured the title at 152 with a 11-2 major decision over Damon Cloe of Marengo for his third state appearance. Sutton said he’s more comfortable this season compared to his past two seasons and has his eyes on the podium at state. “It’s a stepping stone,” Sutton said. “I just want to take the next step and win this.” After recording his 100th win of his career for the Indians, Cloe said qualifying for state has been part of an enjoyable senior season. “It’s been a pretty great ride,” Cloe said. “It was a lot of work in the offseason. I just have to get to that podium now.” Sutton was one of three Rockets of qualify for state. Cameron Kennedy suffered

his first loss of the season, falling 6-4 to Jordan Laster of Montini in the 126-pound final. Kennedy came in ranked first, with Laster second. Grant Sutton also finished second for R-B, falling 8-1 to Vince Turk of Montini. Woodstock North claimed its first state qualifier in Cody Barnes, who won, 5-0, for third place at 195, hitting a reversal with back points at the end of the second period to score the only points of the match. “I feel really proud,” Barnes said. “I was qualifying for the program and for my school.” Johnsburg qualified four for state, with Brandon Peshek (120), Brian McKay (126), Christian Nugent (195) and Brandon Boyle (285) all making it. Nugent took second, Peshek and Boyle took third and McKay took fourth. Along with Cloe, Marengo qualified Corey Graham (113) and John Lesiak (220). Nick Remke (138) took third with a 6-3 decision for Marian Central. Hampshire qualified Travis Keeling (170) and Anton Krocko (182).

Harvard’s Luis wins 106 title By Brian Weidman Special to the Northwest Herald

OREGON – Harvard wrestling’s Anthony Luis looked right at home on the award stand at the Class 1A Oregon Sectional. He’s hoping for a repeat performance next week. Luis punched his ticket to state by claiming a sectional title Saturday at the Blackhawk Center. Next up is the state tournament, which begins Thursday at Assembly Hall in Champaign. The 106-pound Luis (36-6) will be looking to improve on his fourth-place finish from a year ago. “With my team, they push me forward and raise the bar a little bit higher every time,” Luis said. “I’m pushing it up higher to be more successful next week.” Luis had little difficulty in the finals, where he dominated the entire way in posting an 8-1 decision over Sherrard’s Hunter Spengler. He scored a pair of first-period takedowns, then a reversal early in the second period to go up 6-1. After that, it was just a matter of staying out of trouble against Spengler (31-5). The Hornets had three other wrestlers – 120-pounder Irvin Pena, 132-pounder Chance Shelton and 285-pounder Adam Freimund – punch their tickets to state by working their way through wrestlebacks. Pena (29-14), a regional champ who lost in the quarterfinals Friday, won three straight bouts to work his way into the thirdplace match. He lost by a pin against Byron’s Nelson Baker, but as the top four finishers advance to state this year instead of three, the heavy lifting had already been done.

Rockets likely to submit requests to host in-season tournaments • R-B GYM Continued from page C1 More often than they would like, the Rockets have one hour after school to squeeze in practice. The freshman and sophomore girls teams must practice at 6 a.m., and once this season the varsity girls team had to practice at a middle school because too many teams needed the gym. Shooting drills often are a casualty, especially the day before a game, when implementing game plans and preparing for their opponent is the priority. Finding that balance between working on strategy or skill is one of LuDois’ biggest challenges. “We don’t have gym space to get extra shots up, so there’s a lot of times where we can only do game prep,” LuDois said. “And that’s hard because we really need to work on our shooting. That’s the one thing that’s plaguing us so far. We try to get a balance, but a lot of times we can only focus on game prep.” When R-B does manage to get adequate gym time, it can be difficult hearing each other over the din of the workers, which frustrates coaches and players. But even if R-B had more gym space and time without distractions, LuDois said she doesn’t believe that

it would have drastically changed the Rockets’ record (14-11, 8-4 Big Northern Conference East Division). However, LuDois did say she believes her team would shoot much better and exhibit better fundamental skills during games. “I don’t think I’d be a different player, but I think we’d have a lot more time to work on skills and get more practice in like shooting and dribbling,” senior guard Alex Callanan said of getting more practice time. “Even if we have an hour practice or two hour practice, we still come in trying to be focused and work hard each practice.” Although R-B’s seniors won’t get to enjoy the spacious new basketball court, it’s hard to deny the positive boost the upgrades will give the program. The Rockets likely will submit requests to host postseason games as well as hosting in-season tournaments, and during the summer, camps can run with all levels playing at the same time. “It’s definitely exciting,” Callanan said. “Everyone goes and walks over there and looks to see how far they’ve gotten and what’s coming in new. It stinks for the seniors because we don’t get to use it, but I’m sure we’ll come back and visit the school so we’ll get to see it when it’s done.”

Huntley’s John Cazel also was under the state-qualifying time with a 1:00.79 as he placed second. Golden Eagles junior Alex Reinbrecht won meet MVP as he placed first in both the 200 and 500 freestyle events with times that he is proud of. “I’m pretty solid with my times,” Reinbrecht said. “I’m still in great position to drop some more time at sectionals and make state. I haven’t been resting at all and I won’t taper until state, so I’m pretty happy with where I’m at.” DeDina echoed his teammates’ positive outlook. “It’s really reassuring posting those times today,” he said, “because I wasn’t real confident coming in today because

I felt pretty crappy, but I really needed [those times] today. It’s reassuring, and now I know that me and Alex can make state and be fully tapered for state so we can come out guns blazing.” For Cary-Grove, it was a day that ended with one final jump in the pool, but this time holding a trophy. After being presented with the first-place trophy, the team and coach Rick Schaefer took the hardware for a swim. “It feels awesome,” Michael Hamann said of the win while clutching the trophy. “We’ve won each year I’ve been here and it’s special to be a part of.” Hamann had a banner day placing first in both individual events and first in both relays,

but he does have one problem. He entered the meet with a goal of bettering the All-American time standard in the 100 butterfly that he did by 0.33, as he swam a personal-best 50.40, but now he is faced with tough decision. “That was pretty big, but now I don’t know what I want to swim at sectionals,” the three-time state qualifier said. “It’s between the fly and the backstroke. I’m going to get second, third, fourth, fifth even sixth opinions and we’ll talk it over and see what’s best for me.” Trojans coach Rick Schaefer had this to say about the win and his team’s good swims: “The taper gods were good to us today.”


PR claims more berths to state meet NORTHWEST HERALD Prairie Ridge will be the favorite for the team title at next week’s girls gymnastics state meet and will have six individual competitors in various events. The Wolves, a co-op team with athletes from CaryGrove, Crystal Lake Central and Prairie Ridge, had the best score (149.525) out of the four sectionals. Lyons Township (149.250) was next. No other team scored more than 147. The state meet takes place Friday and Saturday at Palatine High School. Qualifying in the four events and the all-around competition will be Friday. The finals in four individual events will be Saturday, with the state championship team also determined that night. Those teams with athletes in the finals may improve their scores on Saturday. As expected, Prairie Ridge had more competitors land individual event atlarge berths when the four sectionals were completed. The top five finishers in each event from sectionals are automatic qualifiers. Then, after sectionals, the 12 top scores in each event and all-around are awarded state berths. Riley Mahoney, Rachael Underwood and Jada Berkland all qualified for the allaround. Mahoney also will compete in vault, balance beam and floor exercise. Underwood will compete in vault and uneven bars, while Berkland will compete

in vault, bars and beam. Also, Maddie Solka will compete in bars and floor, Dylann Perrone will compete in vault and Savanna Mensching will compete in beam.

Rodriguez scores 8 of his 12 points in 4th quarter • BASKETBALL Continued from page C1

Rodriguez added 12 points, with eight in the fourth quarter. He hit both his 3s in that quarter. J.T. Beasley added 11 points for the Chargers. D-C lost three times to Huntley last season by a combined 11 points. “I don’t know the last time we beat them,” Chargers coach Lance Huber said. “We led every game we played them last year at halftime, but just couldn’t put them away.” Manning looked at his team’s shot chart and immediately found the Raiders’ downfall. “It was missed layups, period,” he said. “We missed 15 shots inside of 3 feet. Our defense was good enough, but we missed too many layups.” Amanza Egekeze led Hunt-

Lardy wins 145-pound title

McHenry’s Wade Lardy won a sectional title at 145 pounds and had to get through three ranked wrestlers to do it. Lardy, ranked No. 7 by, defeated No. 2-ranked Justin Weber from Stevenson, 4-3, in the championship match. Warriors coach Will Gaddy said Lardy wanted to turn the tables on Weber and attack an opponent who normally is the attacker. “Wade wanted to beat Weber at his own game,” Gaddy said. “It kind of surprised [Weber].” In the quarterfinals, Lardy defeated No. 6-ranked Coord Wiseman from Barrington. In the semifinals, Lardy beat Harlem’s Fernando Silva, an honorable mention selection. The tough bracket was motivation for Lardy. “I was just really excited how tough my bracket was,” Lardy said. “I knew if I came in here excited, the outcome would be good.” Also for McHenry, Mike Infelise qualified for state with at fourth-place finish at 126. Crystal Lake South qualified three wrestlers to state. Nick Gil at 126, Eric Barone (132) and Nick Peters (138) all finished second to qualify. Gators coach Ross Ryan

said the accomplishment was crystallized in the semifinals, where Barone and Peters were wrestling to get to state at the same time on adjoining mats. Ryan was coaching Peters to a close decision win while keeping an eye on Barone, who won in an ultimate tiebreaker. “To see [Barone] getting his hand raised simultaneously with [Peters], I was an emotional wreck,” Ryan said. Dundee-Crown’s Ray Griggel needed to beat Grant’s Connor Haran in the consolation semifinals to secure his place at state. Haran had beaten Griggel on Friday in the first round, 8-3, but Griggel learned from that experience. Griggel pinned Haran in the first period to punch his ticket to state. Chargers coach Bob Skillman said Griggel missed the first half of the season with an injury but got back to doing what he does best, being the attacker. “[Griggel] was the shooter. He was on offense all day long,” Skillman said. Also qualifying was Jacobs’ Austin Ryan, who placed second at 106, and Prairie Ridge freshman Travis Piotrowski, who won by pin in his 106-pound third-place match. Huntley’s Brandon Mabry came back from a close semifinal loss with two wins in the consolation bracket to qualify for state with a thirdplace finish.

Fullerton returns to court after coach’s death Police suspect Quan, fiancée shot by ex-cop The ASSOCIATED PRESS

FULLERTON, Calif. – Jessica Palmer only made it a few seconds into the moment of silence before she had to wipe away tears. A teammate beside her couldn’t help it, either, and brought an arm up to her face. As much as the Cal State Fullerton women’s basketball team tried to return to normalcy Saturday, its first

game since the killings of assistant coach Monica Quan and her fiancée, Keith Lawrence, was almost too much to take. “It was hard, it was really hard,” junior guard Alex Thomas said after a 64-45 loss to UC Riverside. “Harder than I expected it to be. There’s just a lot of emotions that come into it – not being able to look down the line and see her standing up there with us. I know at least for me, it was really difficult ... it was hard not having her with us.” The game came six days after the 28-year-old Quan and Lawrence, 27, were found shot inside a parked car in the parking structure of their Irvine condominium. Police suspect

Christopher Dorner, a fired Los Angeles police officer who was reportedly represented in a disciplinary hearing by Quan’s father, Randal, a former LAPD captain. Additional security presence was noticeable in Titan Gym. Inside the entrance was a memorial, including Quan’s picture inside Monica Quan of a wreath along with flowers and a guestbook for fans to write messages for the coach they called “Coach Mo.” Fullerton players wore long-sleeve orange shirts that read “MO-tivation” on the front and “it is the courage to continue that counts.”

Quan was only in her second year with Fullerton but her influence appeared to be considerable. Fullerton coach Marcia Foster choked up during the postgame news conference and later said, “It was a challenge for me to come up here today” in front of a myriad of cameras. “We can’t say how sorry we are to Randal Quan and (mother) Sylvia Quan and (brother) Ryan Quan and the family of Keith Lawrence,” Foster said. “It doesn’t make sense to any of us, and you all know that young people shouldn’t have to experience this kind of tragedy. A family shouldn’t have to go through it. “I don’t think anybody feels like they’re healing right now. We feel

Wisconsin’s Ben Brust (top) celebrates after hitting a 3-point shot in the final second of regulation against Michigan on Saturday in Madison, Wis. Wisconsin won, 65-62, in overtime.


Badgers take down Wolverines in OT The ASSOCIATED PRESS MADISON, Wis. – When Ben Brust tied the score at the end of regulation with a shot just from just inside midcourt, his teammate Mike Bruesewitz looked over at Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan and saw something unusual. His coach had both his arms in the air. “You know when he shows some emotion, you’ve done something pretty special,” Bruesewitz said. Brust hit a tie-breaking 3-pointer with less than 40 seconds left in overtime as Wisconsin beat No. 3 Michigan, 65-62, on Saturday. “It was awesome, something I’ll remember forever, and I’m sure a lot of people will,” Brust said of the game, which ended with students storming the court and Bruesewitz taking the public address announcer’s microphone to thank the crowd as students celebrated around him. The Wolverines became the third top three team to lose this week as No. 1 Indiana lost to Illinois and No. 2 Florida was beaten by Arkansas. This should be the sixth straight week with a different No. 1 in The Associated Press’ Top 25. Brust’s shot at the end of regulation was a dramatic turn of events for Wisconsin (17-7, 8-3 Big Ten) and a soul crusher for Michigan (21-3, 8-3).

No. 12 Michigan St. 78, Purdue 65: At West Lafayette, Ind., Branden Dawson scored 20 points and Keith Appling added 17 to lead Michigan State. The Spartans (20-4, 9-2) have won nine of their past 10 games and will have at least a share of the league lead regardless of what happens today when No. 1 Indiana visits No. 10 Ohio State. Purdue (12-12, 5-6) was led by Terone Johnson with 20 points and Ronnie Johnson with 15, but it wasn’t enough to avoid a fourth loss in five games or a fifth straight loss in the series. Iowa 71, Northwestern 57: At Iowa City, Iowa, Devyn Marble broke a lengthy slump with 21 points to help Iowa snap a twogame losing streak. Josh Oglesby added 10 for the Hawkeyes (15-9, 4-7 Big Ten), who won for only the second time in six games. Reggie Hearn had 13 to lead the Wildcats (13-11, 4-7), who lost for the third time in four games. Nebraska 67, Penn St. 53: At Lincoln, Neb., Dylan Talley had 16 points and Nebraska pulled away from Penn State (8-15, 3-8) early in the second half. Nebraska (12-12, 3-8 Big Ten) opened the second half with an 12-2 spurt that put the Cornhuskers up 41-26 on David Rivers’ free throws with 16:50 left.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – Brandt Snedeker had his ninth straight round in the 60s on Saturday. One more like that and he might really have reason to celebrate. Snedeker ran off four straight birdies along the prettiest part of Pebble Beach for a 4-under-par 68, giving him a share of the lead with 31-yearold rookie James Hahn going into the final round of the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. A runner-up in consecutive weeks to Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, this time the spotlight belongs to Snedeker. “You never know Brandt what tomorrow holds, Snedeker but I feel like I’m in great position, and I’m going to be surely more prepared, no matter who is around me in the last group,” Snedeker said. “I’m probably going to have the most experience of anybody in those last couple groups of winning a golf tournament.” Hahn had a 66 at Spyglass Hill, making birdie on the last three holes to join Snedeker at 12-under 202. Chris Kirk birdied his last hole at Monterey Peninsula for a 64 and was one shot behind the leaders. Defending champion Phil Mickelson took a spill on the rocks below the 18th fairway. Mickelson was looking to see if his tee shot could be found – and played – when his right foot gave way and he landed hard on his back side, bracing the fall with his hands. “I got lucky,” Mickelson said. “I didn’t get hurt.” Not physically, anyway. Mickelson hit his next shot into the Pacific Ocean and had to scramble for a triple bogey, leaving him 11 shots behind and ending his hopes of a record-tying fifth win at Pebble Beach. Snedeker hasn’t had a better chance to win all year. He was seven shots behind Woods and six shots behind Mickelson going into the final round. Now he is tied with Hahn, who until now was best known for “Gangnam” celebration of his birdie on the 16th hole at the Phoenix Open. “He’s been playing great golf these last couple of weeks ... and it looks like this could be his week,” Mickelson said of Snedeker. “But final round at Pebble Beach, a lot of things happen and he has to play one more good round. I know he has it in him, but he still has to go do it.” Pebble Beach was simply majestic on Saturday, with a blazing sun shining across the Pacific coast and temperatures in the upper 50s.

Mediate leads Allianz Championship by 3 shots: At Boca Raton, Fla., Rocco

Mediate shot an 11-under 61 on Saturday, setting a course record and building a three-shot lead over Tom Pernice Jr. heading into the final round. Mediate is trying to become the 16th player to win his first start on the Champions Tour. He won six times on the PGA Tour and is probably best remembered for losing a playoff to Tiger Woods in the 2008 U.S. Open. Mediate had five consecutive birdies on the front nine, highlighted by a drive to the green at the par-4 seventh hole. He added three more birdies after the turn and closed with a birdie at the 17th and a 10-foot eagle at the 18th. It was the lowest round of Mediate’s career, one better than his 62 at Colonial in 2001, and it snapped the tournament record of 63 set by Craig Stadler in 2007. Mediate’s total of 128 through two rounds was three better than the 36-hole mark of 131 shared by Tim Simpson and Tommy Armour III.

son recovering from knee surgery, the Americans failed to make an impact. Less than 2 hours before the start of the race, Andrew Weibrecht posted the fastest time in an additional 50-second training run on the bottom part of the course. But he finished only 22nd in the race, 3.25 seconds behind Svindal, for the top U.S. result. Miller, who attended the race, is expected back next season and plans to compete in the 2014 Sochi Olympics. “He was one who always seemed to pull it through in these situations and it’s tough not having him,” said Marco Sullivan, who opened the season with a third-place result in Lake Louise. “But we saw in training and the past races we’ve all been skiing pretty well. We just have to make that jump to doing it in big events.”


SCHLADMING, Austria – Aksel Lund Svindal was far ahead of his downhill competitors at worlds championships in every aspect – technically, physically and tactically. Mastering a bumpy and icy course made more difficult by a light snowfall and low visibility, Svindal won the downhill title Saturday by a huge margin. Other contenders ran into trouble on the 2-mile Planai course, especially on the steep, final pitch where skiers had to dig their edges in hardest just when their legs began to weaken. “The game plan was to be pushing all the way down to the last pitch, than be tactical at two gates there then push hard again,” Svindal said. “It’s never perfect but I had a very

good run. When I came down and I was fast I was happy because I definitely didn’t want to go up and do it again because I didn’t have any more (energy).” Svindal clocked 2 minutes, 1.32 seconds to win by nearly half a second and secure his second world title Aksel Lund in skiing’s sigSvindal nature event, having also won in Are, Sweden, in 2007. Dominik Paris of Italy, who leads this season’s World Cup downhill standings by three points ahead of Svindal, took the silver medal, 0.46 behind, and David Poisson of France was a surprise third-place finisher.

Detroit Pistons’ Charlie Villanueva celebrates after making a 3-pointer in the final seconds of Saturday of the Pistons’ 105-100 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks in Milwaukee.


Villanueva cans Pistons’ win The ASSOCIATED PRESS

MILWAUKEE – Charlie Villanueva hit a 3-pointer with 9.7 seconds left and Rodney Stuckey sealed the win with two free throws as the Detroit Pistons beat the Milwaukee Bucks, 105-100, on Saturday. Brandon Jennings, who scored 26 points, took an inbounds pass from Monta Ellis and made a tough fadeaway shot with 47.8 seconds left, but Jose Calderon, who tied his season high with 23 points, came back with a running layup for Detroit that tied it at 100. After a timeout, the Pistons worked the ball to Villanueva, who got it at the top of the key and swished a 3 with 9.7 seconds left. On the Bucks’ next possession, Jennings fired up a 31-foot, 3-point attempt with 3.2 seconds left. Stuckey’s two free throws with 1.6 seconds remaining were the final margin.

Nuggets 111, Cavaliers 103:

At Cleveland, Danilo Gallinari scored 19 points, Kenneth Faried added 17 and Denver won its ninth straight game with a win over Cleveland t. The Nuggets, who have won 15 of 17, are on their longest winning streak since posting 10 straight victories from March 30-April 15, 2005. Kyrie Irving led Cleveland with 26 points, but was plagued by foul trouble. The All-Star guard picked up his fourth foul with 5:20 remaining in the third quarter and went to the bench with the Nuggets leading 72-61. Irving returned to start the fourth quarter with Denver ahead 8473. He scored 12 points in the period, but Cleveland’s rally fell short. 76ers 87, Bobcats 76: At Philadelphia, Lavoy Allen had 14 points and a career-high 22 rebounds, and Jrue Holiday scored 20 points to lead Philadelphia to a win over Charlotte Bobcats. Evan Turner had 16 points

and 10 rebounds, and Jeremy Pargo scored 12 points in his Sixers debut. Pargo signed a 10-day contract this week after he was waived by Cleveland. The Sixers improved to 5-2 on their eight-game homestand that ends Monday against the Los Angeles Clippers. The solid showing at home has helped the Sixers inch closer to the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.

Mavericks 116, Warriors 91:

At Dallas, Shawn Marion scored a season-high 26 points, O.J. Mayo added 19 and Dallas handed Golden State its fourth straight loss. Dirk Nowitzki scored 15 points and Darren Collison keyed a first-quarter run for Dallas, which beat Golden State for the first time this season after dropping their first two meetings to the Warriors by a combined seven points. The Mavericks built a 27-point lead in the second quarter to put away the Warriors early.

Devils extend winning streak The ASSOCIATED PRESS

NEWARK, N.J. – Adam Henrique and Bobby Butler scored power-play goals 2:12 apart in the third period, and the New Jersey Devils extended their winning streak to four games with a 3-1 victory over Pittsburgh on Saturday that snapped the Penguins’ fivegame winning streak. Ilya Kovalchuk assisted on the late goals, and defenseman Andy Greene had two assists, including the primary one on rookie Stefan Matteau’s first NHL goal. Martin Brodeur made 24 saves and provided a little humor by chasing his stick late in the second period of his 1,200th career game. He became the first NHL goalie to reach the milestone.

Flyers 4, Hurricanes 3 (OT):

At Philadelphia, Danny Briere scored 1:47 into overtime to lift Philadelphia over Carolina. Jakub Voracek, Matt Read and Brayden Schenn also scored for Philadelphia, which went 3-0-1 on a four-game homestand. Red Wings 2, Oilers 1: At Detroit, Niklas Kronwall’s thirdperiod goal broke a tie, and Pavel Datsyuk had a goal and an assist in Detroit’s narrow win over Edmonton. Henrik Zetterberg had two assists, and Jimmy Howard made 23 saves for Detroit (6-41). Jets 1, Senators 0: At Ottawa, Al Montoya made 33 saves, and Alex Ponikarovsky scored the only goal in Winnipeg’s win over Ottawa. Ponikarovsky broke the scoreless deadlock 5:57 into the third period. The Senators had no answer against Montoya, who replaced an ailing Ondrej Pavelec (flu) and posted his first shutout of the season and third of his NHL career. Coyotes 1, Sharks 0 (SO): At San Jose, Calif., Mike Smith made 33 saves through overtime and then turned aside two more shots in the shootout to

At Boston, the game between Tampa Bay and Boston was postponed because of the blizzard that dumped more than 2 feet of snow on the Boston area. No makeup date had been scheduled yet. Originally scheduled for 1 p.m., the game was pushed back until 7 p.m. to allow the storm to pass. But public transportation was not expected to resume Saturday, and roads still were being cleared. 815-455-4330

Nothing to fear from a snowy Super Bowl

Woody Johnson owns the New York Jets, so he’s no stranger to making big proclamations. Consider this one, just after the New York area won the bid for the first Super Bowl in an outdoor stadium in a cold weather market. “I like doing things for the first time,” Johnson said. “I hope it snows.” Not quite as bold as guaranteeing his team would be both a host and participant in the game. As dysfunctional as the Jets are, it’s hard to imagine they still will be playing next Feb. 2 when the two best teams in football square off in the 48th big game of the modern – or any other – era. But Johnson easily could get his wish when it comes to the weather, as New Yorkers were reminded this weekend. Probably not a foot of snow like the New York area got hit with in the latest storm just days after the Super Bowl in New Orleans. But cold, definitely, with snow more than just a random possibility.

It’s a scenario that will occupy organizers for many long hours. There will be volunteers ready to sweep snow from the stadium at the Meadowlands, portable heaters everywhere, and extra stocks of hot chocolate and schnapps for corporate executives to sip in the stands. Ultimately, though, it’s not something the NFL needs to be terribly worried about. The league can do no wrong, and that won’t change just because the elements will intrude on the next Super Bowl. Might even make it more interesting for the 100 million or so people who will be watching in the comfort of their own living rooms. Football is a game meant to be played in the elements, as commissioner Roger Goodell reminded us last week in New Orleans. One of the NFL’s iconic games was the so-called “Ice Bowl” of 1967, when the Green Bay Packers defeated the Dallas Cowboys on the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field to win

VIEWS Tim Dahlberg a spot in the second Super Bowl. The temperature at game time was 14 degrees below zero, and the wind chill was far worse. The field was a sheet of ice, and it was so cold referees couldn’t use whistles because they became frozen to their lips. Sorry, New Jersey, but you’re not going to top that. And they still played the game. Yes, it could be cold. Yes, there could be snow. And, yes, the game would be better off in Florida or inside a dome with good electrical service. That’s especially true if the participants are teams used to domes or warm climates. But the Jets and Giants spent a lot of money to build the new stadium they share, and they wanted a Super Bowl for the New York metropolitan area.

Ultimately that’s what drives Super Bowl selection these days. Owners want to reward their fellow owners, and five of the past 10 title games have gone to cities that have ponied up for new stadiums. Giving one to the New York area was always a little dicey, which is why it took four votes by owners a few years back to give the game to the Meadowlands over bids by warm weather sites Tampa and South Florida. It came after organizers urged them to “Make Some History” and showed a video that included clips from historic cold-weather games. Trust the NFL to pull this one off. This is a league, after all, that is so untouchable that a 34-minute power outage in New Orleans not only turned a rout into a competitive game but made TV ratings go up around the country. And the time it rained at a Super Bowl? You may not remember the game, but probably do remember Prince playing “Purple Rain”

as it came down in Miami in 2007. Nothing can dent the NFL’s widespread popularity. Not a lockout, replacement referees or even brain injuries. Certainly not a little cold and snow. “The plans that have been developed for the Super Bowl, I think, are extraordinary, and they’re just beginning to be released,” Goodell said in New Orleans. “We will be prepared for the weather factors.” Actually, the NFL has some issues to worry about other than the weather at the Meadowlands. Hotel rooms surely will be in short supply even at exorbitant prices, and transportation for teams, support staff, media and volunteers will be a challenge. There are also a ton of logistical worries that go along with putting the most watched sporting event in America in the most congested area in the country, and not everyone is cooperating. The mayors of at least two towns near MetLife Stadium,

upset that their towns don’t get some benefit from the facility, threatened in a recent press release not to help with police, fire or other municipal services needed for the Super Bowl unless the NFL starts writing some checks. “With one of (the) world’s largest sporting events coming to the East Rutherford venue, there is little doubt that the mayors will be expecting a call that their services are needed,” Secaucus Mayor Michael Gonnelli said in the statement. “The answer will be clear: Don’t ask.” The Super Bowl will not be without problems. Even the NFL can’t make everyone happy, not matter what the weather is like. But let a little cold and snow mess up the first – and quite possibly only – Super Bowl in the New York area? Fuhggedaboutit.

Rob Ryan was hired as the New Orleans Saints’ defense coordinator Saturday after spending the past two seasons as the defensive coordinator of the Dallas Cowboys.


Saints hire Ryan as defensive coordinator By BRETT MARTEL The Associated Press

METAIRIE, La. – Saints coach Sean Payton has chosen Rob Ryan as his new defensive coordinator, hoping New Orleans can overhaul a unit that was historically bad last season. Ryan, the brother of New York Jets coach Rex Ryan, spent the past two seasons as Dallas’ defensive coordinator. He was fired after last season, when his defense ranked 19th. “We have experience in preparing and playing against his defenses and they’ve always been challenging in terms of the different looks and pressures that they feature,” Payton said when Ryan’s hiring was announced Saturday, one day after he interviewed for the job. “We’ve had the chance to visit with each other and talk about our visions for our team and I’m excited about moving forward as we prepare for the 2013 season.” In 2010, Ryan was Cleveland’s defensive coordinator when the Browns beat the Saints in the Superdome 30-17, intercepting passes by Drew Brees four times. One of those interceptions was made by linebacker Scott Fujita, who had been a captain of New Orleans’ defense a season earlier and had helped Ryan prepare and execute the game plan against the Saints. Payton said he also has added Stan Kwan as an assistant special teams coach. Kwan has been an NFL assistant 23 years, the past three

as special teams assistant in Buffalo. “Stan is a veteran coach that understands all nuances of the special teams game,” Payton said. “He has a wealth of knowledge and I believe he will be a good fit.” Just days after returning from his season-long suspension in connection with the NFL’s investigation of the Saints’ cash-for-hits bounty program, Payton fired defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo and said he would switch New Orleans’ defensive scheme from a 4-3 alignment (four down linemen, three linebackers) to a 3-4. The Saints yielded 7,042 yards last season, the worst singleseason total in NFL history. Ryan has run 3-4 schemes for years. He worked as a linebacker coach in such defenses in New England, where he was part of two Super Bowlwinning teams. He then spent five seasons as defensive coordinator in Oakland (20042008), followed by two seasons in Cleveland before moving to Dallas in 2011. Now the 50-year-old Ryan takes his fourth defensive coordinator job since 2004 while becoming Payton’s fourth defensive coordinator since 2006. “I have had the opportunity to get to know Sean Payton and his staff a bit better recently and I am excited about joining the team,” Ryan said in a statement provided by the Saints. “I’m ready to get to work on all facets of the game. This is a great opportunity and we’re getting started right away.”

Thrift with a cause Habitat for Humanity ReStore to open in Woodstock By CHRIS CASHMAN WOODSTOCK – A new ReStore in Woodstock will help Habitat for Humanity of McHenry County expand its reach. Jerry Monica, executive director of Habitat McHenry, said the store at 2205 S. Eastwood Drive (Route 47) is tentatively scheduled to open Feb. 28. Initial store hours will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday. He said the 15,000-square-foot site is about average size for a ReStore, although it’s dwarfed by the 40,000square-foot ReStore in Elgin, and smaller than the 24,000-square-foot site in Gurnee. Still, he expects the store to generate between $300,000 and $400,000 in gross revenue a year. “It’s a great source of unrestricted funds (donations),” Monica said. “Federal dollars are less and less every year.” Habitat McHenry received $150,000 in federal funding four years ago. The agency expects to receive $81,000 this year, he said. “It’s obvious we need to do things to be more self-sufficient and not rely on government money,” Monica said Funds raised from the ReStore will help the agency help those in need. “We want to expand the inventory of affordable housing. Also help lower-income people with repairs,” said Monica, a resident of Lake in the Hills. Habitat McHenry’s A Brush with Kindness program helped repair 12 homes when it started in 2010. Volunteers helped repair 75 homes last year, and 100 families are expected to be assisted with repairs this year. “We’re switching over to how many families we serve per year instead of how many houses we build,” Monica said. “It’s not about the houses. It’s about

Habitat home dedication Habitat for Humanity of McHenry County will dedicate its 23rd Habitat home at 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 16, at 1600 Hillside Lane, McHenry. Homowners are the Dana Ferguson family. the people in the houses,” he added. Monica said the ReStore will accept donations of new and used building materials and gently used hardware, furniture and appliances from individuals, retailers and contractors. The items are sold to the general public at deeply discounted prices. He said it’s a good deal for contractors and rehabbers, who avoid dumpster fees by donating used cabinets, countertops, vanities and appliances. “We’re diverting reusable material that may have wound up in a landfill,” Monica said. Habitat offers deconstruction and

donation pick-up services in the area, Once the ReStore opens, there will be a donation center available on-site taking drop-off donations from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day except Sunday. “You can drive right up and make a donation,” Monica said. “But it has to be stuff somebody else is going to buy.” Habitat also is seeking volunteers to work at the ReStore. Monica said no experience is necessary for jobs such as cashier, customer service, scheduler, donation center worker, and driver helper. Volunteers are being accepted and trained currently for minimum four-hour shifts which will begin Feb. 28. Mark Peteler is the ReStore director. According to Habit for Humanity, the first ReStore in the U.S. opened its doors in Austin, Texas, in 1992. At that time, the Habitat ReStores were known to sell building materials only. Today there are about 500 stores.

Breaking news @

She gained a career by losing weight After selling the family manufacturing business in Wood Dale, Kathryn Godlewski partnered with a long-time friend and opened a coffee bar in Fox Lake. At the same time, Godlewski faced the possibility of a serious health problem caused in large part because she was obese. An angiogram ordered by her doctor to test for blocked arteries was negative, but it served as a wake-up call. She knew she had to make a change. “I was 50 years old, had dieted all my life, weighed 301 pounds. and faced the possibility of blocked arteries” she said. She reviewed all of the diets she had tried, identified why they hadn’t worked and developed her own program. For the next year and a half she followed her program and lost 165 pounds. To date she has maintained the weight loss for four years. Family, friends and customers at the coffee bar who witnessed the change urged her to write a book. The recession forced the closure of the coffee bar and, as therapy, she decided to write that book. “Closing the coffee bar was as difficult as losing a close friend,” Godlewski said. “Creating my own recipes, testing them and writing the book helped me to deal with it.” When the manuscript was completed, she decided to take the next step and copyright it. “With a copyrighted manuscript it seemed sensible to take another step and publish it,” she said. Through Internet research, she discovered Create Space, Amazon’s independent publishing site. With her book “How Did You Do It?” available on Amazon, a new career began to evolve. Godlewski, 58, is now a health coach at Dr. Timothy Hartlett ‘s McHenry Medical Center, 202 S. Route 31, McHenry; she is working with Fox Lake District 114 in developing a program to combat childhood obesity and diabetes; and has teamed up with Gayle Booth, a registered dietician and owner of Pathway Dietetics in Crystal Lake. “We are working to show kids that there are fun activities beyond the screen and to show parents that serving healthy meals is not complicated or time consuming,” Godlewski said. Godlewski also provides coaching through her website www. “For the better part of my life I thought a diet would help me to lose weight and be healthy. Nothing out there helped me,” Godlewski said. “When I changed my way of thinking all the pieces fell into place. It is truly satisfying now to see my experience helping other people to achieve their goal.”

Program fees and contributions just don’t mix

Today’s topic is one that doesn’t exactly please my clients. However, I remind them that I am the “Princess of Doom.” It is my job to think of all the bad things that can happen and then avert any impending crisis! Today’s topic is the “booster club.” Keep in mind that booster clubs include not only high school boosters but also youth athletic organizations, fine arts groups and other charitable organizations offering programs for a fee – not just those that call themselves “boosters.” Using this IRS definition, a very large sector of our community has involvement with a booster club, as a board member, active volunteer, or parent of a child participant. In the eyes of the IRS, this has been an area of substantial abuse; so much in fact that IRS Tax-Exempt Director Lois Lerner placed booster clubs on her annual Work Plan as an

area requiring review. Clearly, the object of Lerner’s attention here is the propensity for booster clubs to commingle program service fees and charitable contributions, which is a big no-no. Many organizations seek creative ways to fund-raise, to defray the cost of programs. One of the most common methods of fundraising involves students raising money to pay for trips, camps, uniforms, etc. Whether the students are selling candy, sponsorship ads in a program book, or simply seeking cash donations, the problem arises when the charity implements the concept of Participant Designated Accounts. Here’s how it works: The organization initiates a program where the student or program participant earns direct credit toward his or her program fees, camp, or trip cost based on that individual’s level of volunteer work or the amount of funds raised on behalf of

NONPROFITS Nancy Gonsiorek the organization. This practice is extremely prevalent but creates tax consequences for both the organization and the participant. In fact, it can result in the loss of tax-exempt status. The primary issue for the IRS is a payroll issue because amounts credited to an individual student’s account are taxable wages. Observance of the situation may prompt the IRS to initiate a payroll tax examination and assess taxes and penalties on the unreported compensation. In fact, several booster clubs have been subject to such examinations with taxes and penalties assessed in the tens of thousands of dollars. Additional concerns for the

organization include assessment of income taxes because the fundraising is now conducted by paid employees and not volunteers. The most severe situation is the risk that the organization has violated the rule of Private Benefit: Organizations exempt under Internal Revenue Code Sec. 501(c)(3) may not operate for the substantial private benefit of any individual. For small to medium-sized organizations, this fundraising activity may be a substantial portion of revenues. Substantial Private Benefit will jeopardize the tax-exempt status of the organization. These consequences are extremely severe and they deserve consideration when planning program and/or fundraising activities. So remember: Whether you are selling candy to cover some of your program expenses, soliciting contributions for a mission trip, or simply placing a volunteer requirement

on every parent in your athletic program, program fees and contributions are like oil and water. They just don’t mix. *** I will be presenting my program, “Nonprofit Know-How” at 8 a.m. Feb. 20 for a local business league. This is a great program for nonprofit board members and employees to learn the basics. If you like the column, you will love the program. Breakfast is served; seating is limited.

DAVE SAYS Dave Ramsey

Base term life insurance on your income Dear Dave,

I’m looking at buying term life insurance. Currently, I’m in medical school doing my last year of residency and making $35,000 a year. Should I base the amount of insurance coverage on what I’m making now or what I’ll make when I’ve finished medical school?

– Amanda

Dear Amanda,

In most cases, I advise basing the amount of life insurance coverage on the income you’re earning at the moment. After all, that’s the amount your family is used to living on, right? However, if you’re finishing up your medical degree this year, it’s a virtual certainty you’ll earn lots more in 2014. You could easily go from making $35,000 to $135,000. I recommend that people buy term life insurance coverage of about 10 to 12 times their annual income. Considering your situation, I’d say you could afford to buy a little potential. Instead of basing it on your current $35,000 income and buying a policy in the $350,000 to $400,000 range, you might double that amount. It will still be really cheap coverage as long as you’re in decent health. And once you’re making doctor money you can adjust the amount of coverage according to what you actually make. Good luck, Amanda!

– Dave

Dear Dave,

My wife and I were recently involved in an auto accident, and the insurance company doesn’t want to cover the damage due to a technicality. We both work, so I’d like to find a replacement car while we fight this out with the insurer. However, we only have $7,000 in savings and we don’t want to spend it all. What should we do?

– John

Dear John,

You can definitely find your wife a good used car for what you’ve got in the bank. However, leaving yourselves with no savings whatsoever is not a good plan. I realize no one enjoys driving a beater, but that’s what I’d do right now. Just look at it as a rental car. If you spend $1,500 on a little used something, you will have $5,500 left in your savings account. Just act as your own insurance company for a while. Then, when the big guys pay up, you could just plug it back into your savings account. Even if they don’t pay, you’ll still have a nice chunk of change sitting there. And it wouldn’t take long to save up enough to upgrade that little hooptie to something nicer and more reliable while still keeping the majority of your savings intact!

Music, music, everywhere

In turn-of-the-century America, music was a part of every celebration. A marching band was a must for every major public event. Huntley had a brass band as early as 1859. Musical societies sprang up everywhere. Harvard ladies formed a Schumann Society in 1906 to “promote the study and interest of music.” Many businesses included the sale of musical instruments along with the major merchandise offered. The T. J. Gill Jewelry store of Marengo sold pianos along with the

jewelry which was its primary business. Phil Starck of Harvard built and sold organs in 1881. Many orchestras, such as Westermans of Woodstock, provided “suitable music for any occasion.” In December 1856 the McHenry County Musical Association held a convention in Woodstock under the direction of William Bradbury of New York which ran for three days. Pictured is one of many of these musical groups, the Spring Grove Coronet Band.

TODAY - When you establish a few realistic goals in the year ahead, you could easily receive a lot of support from unexpected people. Fortunately, success is likely when you are teamed up with strong allies. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Your greatest asset is your ability to take bits and pieces of various ideas and bring them together in the service of a specific objective. Use your mind like a scanner. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You won’t have any trouble rejecting persons who make demands of you. However, should you

be moved by a sense of compassion for one of them, you’ll be generous to a fault. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don’t ignore your instincts concerning dealings with others. Allow your intuition to dominate so that your logic can go to work in the right areas. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Since you’re strongly motivated to fulfill a certain ambitious objective, let your cleverness guide you. Use your wits to convince the right people to work with you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Because







you and someone with whom you enjoy warm emotional ties care so much about each other, you’ll stand by his or her efforts. Good for you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- If you want a winning group endeavor, make sure the people involved respect each other. Only then will truly good work be done. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- There’s no need to dodge difficult decisions, because your judgment is likely to be keener than usual. Weigh your alternatives and trust your evaluations.




VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You are presently in a cycle where your work is being noticed, evaluated and even rewarded. This could be your chance to pick up a few extra bucks. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- If the person whom you have been yearning to get to know better seems reticent about opening up communication, take matters in your own hands and initiate a conversation. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You could be extremely successful at finalizing an important, materially meaningful situation.





Make the most of it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Owing to the considerate way you’ve been treating people lately, your popularity is trending upward. You make everyone feel special. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your financial aspects are looking rather strong, with one possible exception: involvements with questionable people who expect to reap what you sow. Avoid them.

Jennifer Wines Hill and her husband, Mike Hill of Gilberts Sarah Nader –

Jerry Mark enjoys life ‘on the road’ I took the conventional path when I was in college. I wore argyle sweaters, pleated skirts and a necklace with a mustard seed pendant around my neck. I dated my now-husband, who wore button-down shirts with loops on the back and a herringbone jacket. He sported mutton chops and smoked a pipe. When we walked on the wild side, we listened to Joan Baez and Buffy Saint-Marie, and once or twice we went to a coffee house (where they really did serve coffee). We thought about leaving convention behind completely, maybe heading west, but that is as far as it ever got. Boomer Jerry Mark of Fox River Grove, on the other hand, did what we only thought about. Jerry hit the road. Having an interest in literature, art and contemporary culture and a father who had very different ideas for him, Jerry found it easy to break out of convention. He had a friend in high school who had never met his father but had an address. The missing dad was living in California, so Jerry and his friend celebrated their new-found freedom after high school by heading west. Of course, it did not work out quite as they had hoped. After a week, Jerry was sent packing without the convenience of a car or a bus ticket back to Chicago. Jerry hitch-hiked east. He made it through California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas before he ran out of money in Arkansas. There, he befriended the owner of a small restaurant and struck a deal. The owner would feed him as long as Jerry would paint a mural for him on the restaurant’s walls. So it began. Jerry, it seems, was born to be a traveling painter, writer and philosopher. The fact that he later kept a roof over his head and food on the table in a more conventional way is only incidental. Jerry is now what he was as a daring teenager. The one difference is that experience has made him a better painter, writer and philosopher.  I first met Jerry when I joined an all-women’s book group that used to meet at Borders. The story I heard was Jerry frequented the store and one day approached the ladies and asked if he could sit in. From that day forward, it was an all-women plus one man book group. Jerry is the token man, but, even more so, he is the resident sage and renaissance man. We have yet to reference an artist or intellectual about whom Jerry cannot give us some background. If someone mentions Faulkner but draws a blank on what he wrote, we only need to turn to Jerry.  It was when my husband and I visited Jerry in his home, however, that the pieces I knew about him came together. He and his wife, Elaine, showed us Jerry’s space. It was busy with photos and paintings hanging everywhere, a long bookshelf taking up one wall, a big stack of vinyl records piled to the side, a cluttered desk, an exercise bike and canvases everywhere. But it was a mint-condition cover to a Thelonious Monk record, a book about Jack Kerouac and some of Jerry’s paintings of women with hauntingly large eyes that really attracted my attention. I have to confess that when I got home, I had to Google Thelo-

The first was an advant-garde jazz pianist, a pioneer of the new jazz. Keroac was an author who wrote “On the Road,” a novel based on his ramblings across America. Kerouac’s writings won him a title he never wanted: “father of the beat generation.” These were the men who inspired the young Jerry. Yet, there is one more piece of the puzzle that makes up Jerry. Her name is Elaine. Jerry makes no bones about saying she is the most important piece. “The love of my life.” You might say Jerry’s life with Elaine, three children and their grandchildren is conventional, but conventional is not a word that I would ever use to describe Jerry. He may live the settled life in Fox River Grove, but in his heart, Jerry still is and ever will be “on the road.” As he would say, “The end is nothing, the road is all.”

Sticky Marinated Pork Chops

AP photo

Marinade perfects pork By J.M. HIRSCH The Associated Press My goal was simple – an easy pork dish that was all about sticky-sweet-savory deliciousness. Neither take-out nor heavy lifting would be allowed, and versatility was a must. The solution called for something that could marinate all day – or even all night and all day. That way I could prep it the night before, pop it in the refrigerator to get yummy, and ignore it until dinner the next night. This required a bit of a balancing act. The marinade would need to be tangy and slightly acidic, but not so acidic it toughened the pork during what could amount to a 24-hour bath. It also needed to be easy. I was willing to do nothing more than dump all of the marinade ingredients in a bowl, stir, then dump in the meat. Relying on mostly Asian-inspired ingredients made that easy. Most pack big flavor and can be combined with ease. Finally, the versatility. My favorite recipes are those that aren’t fussy about which cut of meat I use. Because sometimes I have pork chops, sometimes I have tenderloin. Sometimes I even just have chicken. Any of the above will work nicely in this recipe.

Sticky Marinated Pork Chops

Start to finish: 30 minutes (plus marinating) Servings: 6 1/2 cup red wine 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce 1/4 cup mirin 1/4 cup packed brown sugar 2 tablespoons rice vinegar 1 tablespoon vegetable or canola oil 1 teaspoon hot sauce 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke

Questions? Call 815-526-4529. 1 teaspoon dry ground ginger 1 teaspoon garlic powder 6 boneless pork chops Cooked rice, to serve (optional) In a large bowl, whisk together the wine, soy sauce, mirin, brown sugar, vinegar, oil, hot sauce, liquid smoke, ginger and garlic powder. Add the pork chops, turning them with a fork to ensure all of the meat is coated. Cover the bowl and refrigerate at least several hours, or up to 24 hours. When ready to cook, heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil, then set a wire rack over it. Coat the rack with cooking spray. Arrange the pork chops on the rack. Reserve the marinade. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes, or until starting to brown and the chops reach 145 degrees F at the center. Meanwhile, pour the reserved marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high. Cook for 15 minutes, or until slightly reduced and thickened. Set aside. Once the pork has cooked, transfer it to a serving plate. Drizzle the hot marinade over it. Serve immediately, over rice if desired.

Roses are not just for Valentine’s Day Romantic bloom at home year round By KIM COOK The Associated Press


loral fads may ebb and flow, but the rose’s appeal remains constant, well beyond a Valentine’s Day vaseful. In home decor, roses long have been a favorite motif, in wallpapers, lace, chintz, and soft silk furnishings such as curtains, bedding and carpet. The versatile rose floral can impart old-fashioned cottage-y charm, cosmopolitan elegance, even a certain sexy chic. While the rose is quite at home in traditional spaces, there is an architectural quality to its petaled form that fits well with modern decor, too, and the colors can be extraordinary. Lindsey Harris of Ann Arbor, Mich., photographs roses against white backgrounds, creating striking, sometimes quirky botanical portraits. Harris arranges rows of blowsy blooms in candy hues of cherry, lemon and bubble gum pink, printed on 8-by-10-inch frame-able paper. (www.etsy. com/shop/APeacefulLeaf) Artist Kathleen Finlay’s Agnaryd rose photoprint is available in poster format at Ikea.

roposing marriage has become an industry of its own with professional planners, flash mobs for hire and elaborate, homegrown surprises to make the moment memorable. And let’s not forget YouTube, and our steadfast resolve to share. So what happens to the best laid plans when the ring goes missing, the liquid courage is out of control or romance is ruined by unforeseen disaster? “More complicated equals more possible problems, and more pressure,” said Anja Winikka, director of the wedding site Valerie Hunt Beerbower, 29, learned that the hard way. She was a hot, bothered mess the night her husband, Mike, proposed during what he envisioned as a special evening taking in the sights of Washington, D.C. The Labor Day weekend weather was sweltering, she was exhausted from a full day on her feet and she stepped in a huge stagnant pool of foul-smelling water on the National Mall. Her jeans wet and stinky, they pressed on toward the Jefferson Memorial, the proposal site he had scouted

Marriage proposals gone wrong

days before. Halfway around the Tidal Basin, her allergies kicked in, her glasses steamed up from the heat and humidity – and she was begging to return to their hotel. “So in an unlit parking lot, within sight of the Jefferson Memorial, Mike popped the question,” Beerbower, who works for a conservation group in Dayton, Ohio, recalled of their 2008 trek. While they were still basking in her “yes,” a driver pulled up, opened his car door and threw up all over the place. “Mike was crushed, but I couldn’t stop laughing,” she said. Social scientists haven’t spent much time studying marriage proposals, but Winikka said tradition still reigns amid the madness to go big and go public. She said 71 percent of about 10,000 newly marrieds who used her site noted their betrothed asked a parent for permission before popping the question, and 77 percent of grooms went down on bended knee. More couples live together before they get hitched, she said, adding to the desire for meaningful proposals. “Couples are looking to create something really special and create a moment,” Winikka said.

Experts: Don’t skip date night Quality time healthy for couples By JAMI KUNZER Couples should never stop dating, say marriage counselors and others who’ve launched an entire campaign to encourage them to go out. The Date Night Chicagoland Campaign challenges couples to go on one date a week for four weeks. Through the website,, and a mobile app, couples learn about date night ideas, events and discounts. “Research shows that, hey, if you get Dr. Jeremy out, there’s an opportunity for Bidwell you to comPsychologist municate with and founder each other that and director tends to fall off of Meridwith the day to ian Behavday habits of ioral Health in life,” Campaign McHenry Director Alicia La Hoz said. In its second year, it breaks down deals at local businesses in Chicago and the suburbs, including McHenry County. One event, for instance, includes a Thursday, Feb. 14, “Let’s Get Cooking!” outing for couples to cook alongside a licensed chef and then dine on their meals at Community of Faith Lutheran Church in Spring Grove. Officially launched Friday and running through March 11, the campaign is led by Family Bridges Chicago, along with other community, park district and ministry organizations. Family Bridges Chicago has done relationship education and training the past seven years, La Hoz said. The groups saw the need to catalyze couples to take time for themselves, she said. The campaign coincides with National Marriage Week, which began Feb. 7 and runs through Thursday. Dates can be destressors, she said.

Romance tends to fall away with chaos and life.” They’re definitely a part of healthy relationships, said Dr. Jeremy Bidwell, psychologist and founder and director of Meridian Behavioral Health, based in McHenry. Good communication and conflict resolution skills also are necessary, and marital therapists can help couples get more out of these kinds of activities, he said. Any time set aside from the obligations of a busy week can allow couples to work on and maintain the friendship that is supposed to be a part of all happy marriages, he said. Doing activities that both enjoy is best, he said. “The ‘date’ component is not vital, but the quality time component is extremely important,” he said. “It doesn’t have to fit the mold of dinner and a movie, but there should be some time that allows each person to focus on their partner regularly.” How often couples should date depends on how much quality time they have together. Couples who routinely get to talk over dinner and take walks might not need date nights as frequently as those who work opposite shifts, he said. “I think we fall into the trap of thinking of this kind of time as a ‘luxury,’ and something that gets moved to the back burner as soon as something pressing comes up,” he said. “Busy couples with active family lives should see time together without anyone else present as a necessary part of maintaining a healthy family.”

The dating website launched Friday to connect fans of video games.

Are you game? Woodstock men start dating site for gamers By JAMI KUNZER Two Woodstock natives have created a professional dating site for others like them who enjoy video games. This includes anyone from those who regularly take on a couple hours worth of “Assassin’s Creed III” to fans of “Angry Birds” or “FarmVille” addicts on Facebook. is not for the teens many might stereotype as gamers, said Casey Tebo, a Woodstock North High School English teacher who created the site with his long-time friend Patrick Rafferty. “In our culture, when people think video games they think an 18- or 19-year-old living in their parent’s basement,” he said. “Here, we’re trying to reach the more mature gamer.” Other sites have been kind of amateur or unprofessional, he said. Working out the kinks, redesigning and taking customer feedback for the past year or so, the two officially launched the site

Friday. Although he preferred not to disclose the number of members signed up so far, Tebo said the site has had record numbers the past several months and has members in all 50 states. It allows participants to create a profile for free and look for matches. There is a fee to contact matches. Tebo himself grew up in a home where his parents frowned upon video games, although he said he often still found ways to play. “As we’ve gotten older, we’ve continued to play,” he said. He and Rafferty’s conversations often centered around video games. “It’s always been part of our personal culture,” he said. Single when they created the concept for the site, the two now have girlfriends. They hope to provide a resource for others, from those who plays a game on a mobile app to kill time on a 10-minute train ride to those who take part in massive online player games, such as “WorldCrafts.”

Groom’s parents balk at cost of rehearsal dinner Dear Abby: My stepson “Steve” is getting married out of town. His fiancée is an only daughter with three brothers, and her family is throwing a large, traditional, formal wedding. My husband and I have just been informed by Steve’s mother we are to host the rehearsal dinner for the wedding party, their spouses and outof-town guests. It will cost thousands of dollars in addition to the cost of us attending the wedding, and we will have to go into debt to pay for it. Is this fair? When we were married, we had a simple wedding. We prepared everything ourselves because it was all we could afford. Should we be expected to fork over money we don’t have to feed people we don’t know just because the bride’s family can afford to throw a large, formal wedding? – Stepmom In

Canada Dear Stepmom: No, you should not,

and you should let the bride’s family know it ASAP. Although, traditionally, a rehearsal dinner is hosted by the parents of the groom, today it can be hosted by just about anyone who is willing. And while the guest list normally includes all attendants and their spouses or partners, close relatives and special guests such as the clergyperson and spouse, you are not obligated to include out-of-town guests. Out-of-town guests should be given a list of local restaurants and should not expect to be entertained beyond the wedding and the reception. Dear Abby: I had a working relationship with a couple, “Ed” and “Millie,” for many years. I considered them personal friends, as well. I have since left the company and moved about 80 miles away. While I have enjoyed staying in touch with them, their phone calls to me have been overwhelming. They

sometimes call at inappropriate times – day and night. Ignoring them or not returning calls didn’t work. Ed sent me texts, and I finally responded with “Please don’t call me anymore,” but his calls continue. I changed my phone number, but now I’m starting to get calls where I work, and they have even called my daughter’s phone. I know Ed is retired now and has some health issues, but I don’t know why I’m the one he calls when he’s bored and wants someone to talk to. I have reached the point where I don’t think it is possible to continue this friendship if it’s going to involve multiple phone calls each day and 20 messages in my mailbox during the week. How do I get these nice people to give me some space? – Smothered

person not to contact you isn’t normal behavior. It’s harassment. In light of your long friendship with this couple, and the fact that Ed’s behavior is escalating, call his wife. Explain you are concerned about her husband’s behavior and urge her to have him evaluated by his doctor. To My Asian Readers: The Lunar New Year begins today. It’s the Year of the Snake. According to Asian culture, individuals born in the year of the snake are goal-oriented and hate failure. They are excellent mediators – intelligent, refined, clever in business and good providers because they value material wealth. A healthy, happy and prosperous New Year to you all.

Check all hiding spots you might have forgotten. 2. Knowing your cupboard was empty, you check again anyway. Finding nothing, you panic. 3. Suddenly, you notice a number of phantom symptoms such as restless

Check under the bed for pills again because you forgot you already did that. 6. Rummage through drawers or on the floor to find any open prescriptions for anything. 7.

Call one of your pharmacies to tell them you “lost” your prescription for pain medication, but you forgot you already tried that two days ago. They threaten to call the police. 9. Call your friend with whom you trade pain meds to see if he has any extra after all you’ve done for him. 10. Call your parents to tell them you’re job hunting

today and could they possibly loan you $50 to fill your tank. After all, how can you be expected to get a job if you can’t get there? 11. Drive to parent’s house and collect money. 12. Steal your mom’s sleeping pills, raid the refrigerator and grab your sister’s laptop to trade for pills later. 13. Leave immediately for friend’s house to get pills. 14. Score drugs and get high, or at least get some relief from the withdrawal symptoms. 15. Drink a few of your

Couples find their soulmates among Algonquin’s bookshelves




he Algonquin Area Public Library District is a place to find books, DVDs and, apparently, love. At least six couples, and likely more, have met at the library and gone on to marry with many inviting library staff to their weddings. One couple’s wedding day even included a stop at the library for pictures. Perhaps Cupid’s roaming the aisles. Whatever the

reason, love seems to blossom in the library. And that’s without the library hosting singles mixers or speed dating sessions.

Jennifer Wines Hill and her husband, Mike, of Gilberts pose for a portrait Wednesday at Algonquin Public Library. Sarah Nader –

“That might be something we should look into,” said Virginia Freye, community outreach librarian. “Some libraries have actually done that.” Freye enjoys all the love stories and believes the library’s friendly atmosphere has something to do with the connections. That, and, of course, a shared interest in books. Couples have included both co-workers as well as patrons and employees who’ve met at the library. “You get to know people,” Freye said. “You see these people daily, weekly, monthly. You talk to them, find out about them, and the next thing you know, there’s a connection. I think that’s one of our strengths at this library, the customer service. “They try to get to know people, and you see them and feel a part of their lives.” Among the couples are Mike Hill and Jennifer Wines Hill, who both worked at the library as pages, or shelvers, beginning in 1987. The two soon became high school sweethearts, married in 1995 and now have three girls, ages 11,

14 and 16 years old. They’d flirt by hiding a book in each other’s departments. Mike worked in the children’s department, while Jennifer worked in the adult department. They’d take a book and put it in an obviously wrong location for the other to find. “He used to find any excuse to sneak up to my department,” remembered Jennifer, whose mother also worked alongside Mike in the library at the time. Her grandmother has worked at the library, as well. “Any time my mom would talk about me, he would be all ears.” They’d quickly finish up their carts of books so they could help one another out. The two went to different colleges, schools about 800 miles away from one another, but they continued to date through college. Jennifer now works as a nurse at Sherman Health in Elgin, while Mike is a store manager at Walgreens in Huntley.

Matt and Michelle Enerson met as pages at Algonquin Public Library five years ago. When they wed Sept. 29, they stopped by to have pictures taken at the place where they fell in love.


Continued from page 11 “The library was really just a great place to work,” Jennifer said. When they married, library staff came to the wedding and later to Jennifer’s baby shower. In fact, the shower had sort of a library theme with guests asked to bring books. The couple, now living in Gilberts, still visits when they can. “It definitely was pretty important in our lives,” Mike said. The key to their 18-year marriage, he said, is nothing complicated. “I guess with both of our families, this is the way we do things,” he said. “You have to make it work.” Another couple, Matt and Michelle Enerson, share a similar story, having met as pages about five years ago. Married Sept. 29 of last year, they had both their engagement and wedding day pictures taken at the place where they fell in love. Michelle was 17, Matt 16 when they started working at the library. Both originally from Algonquin, the couple, now ages 26 and 25, lives in Villa Park.

They were friends for quite awhile before they started dating. “We both developed crushes on each other. We didn’t tell anyone for awhile, ... but some people figured it out. We kept it pretty hidden,” Michelle said. “It kind of went from friendship to more to history,” Matt said. Michelle’s not surprised to hear of other couples meeting and falling in love at the library. “I think it’s pretty funny. I think it makes sense because you have that similar interest of books and reading to some extent. It gives you kind of a good base. Someone that loves to read, you kind of already know what kind of person they are.” As with the other couples, the Enersons still stay in touch with library staff. At the suggestion of Library Director Lynn Elam, a book plate commemorating their marriage was placed in a 200th anniversary edition of “Pride and Prejudice” by Jane Austen at the library. “Every once in awhile, we’ll visit and pop in and see who’s there and see what’s going on in the ol’ library,” Matt said.

I would like to propose on Valentine’s Day. I want to purchase a specific diamond and have it set in the engagement ring that my girlfriend likes. She has printed out photos from the internet. If I bring in the picture can you make the ring? I am not comfortable buying something this important online, but it is “the one” she wants. First of all, GOOD FOR YOU in recognizing what an important purchase your engagement ring is and how buying it online can be a total disaster! Don’t get me wrong, the internet can make sense for certain purchases, but I have yet to see it be a good choice for any jewelry purchase. We can definitely help you with the ring and the diamond. Once I see the photo, I will be able to give you a price on what it will cost to create it. More often than not, I will probably recognize the manufacturer and may suggest just ordering it if that makes more sense than custom making it. Sometimes this option can save you some money. You should get going on this as soon as possible so we can get everything we need to do for you done, so you can propose on the most romantic holiday of the year!!!

Bride, groom allowed little input on toasts How much direction should you offer to those giving toasts, and what’s the appropriate time limit?

The quick answer to both questions? Very little. Those who speak are the people you love and trust most. If one of them is nervous (or long-winded), make a gentle suggestion like, “We’d love for you to tell the story of the day we met.” Let them know the schedule and time guidelines beforehand. Toasts work well between courses, and like so many things, the best ones are short and sweet. Three to four minutes is ideal.

Love, on the wing

Washington Post photo

Dan Vitilio with a red-tailed hawk. Vitilio has a love for falconry, and his way with birds has been lucrative since he started his business, Wedding Doves for Love.

Animal lover finds success as wedding vendor By Ellen McCarthy The Washington Post Every once in a while, the modern world infringes on Dan Vitilio’s serenity. Solicitors call while he’s feeding the llamas. Regulators want to check on the care of his peacocks and exotic birds. Politicians lobby to install water and sewage services in his quiet hamlet of Kingsville, Md. – a development Vitilio knows also would bring suburbanites, traffic and limitations on his freedom to shoot skeet off his deck or keep as many animals as he wants in his backyard. If that happens, he has told his wife, they’ll leave. Pack up Bacon, the potbellied pig, the horses and the lynx and head someplace farther out where they can live in peace. Vitilio, 51, seems like a man born in the wrong era. It’s easy to imagine him living off the land in a time when kings and queens held jousting tournaments and hunted wild game for sport. Still, he has managed to make the whims of contemporary society work in his favor. And he has become wealthy in the process. Most of his money has been made as a wedding vendor. He doesn’t take pictures or drive a limo or arrange flowers. He brings birds – white pigeons that swoop in elegant circles after the ceremony or a hawk that delivers the rings to the best man.

People eat it up. It’s not unusual for Vitilio’s company, Wedding Doves for Love, to do a dozen weddings a weekend. The hawk’s bookings stretch into 2014. Vitilio could retire today, he says, but why bother? He’d spend his time among the furry and feathered, regardless. When Vitilio married for the first time in 1992, he asked his best man to release 40 birds as Vitilio and his bride emerged from the church. He’ll never forget the gasps of wonder as the birds soared into formation. Afterward, Vitilio’s aunt told him if he didn’t make this his next business venture, she’d have her husband steal the idea for himself. Vitilio started breeding white pigeons, and by that fall they were ready to go. He booked half a dozen weddings by word of mouth, and after a local morning show asked him for a live demo the following spring, his phone started ringing incessantly. Throughout the late 1990s, demand for the birds was so high Vitilio brought on assistants who could cover a wedding with one set of birds while he took a different group elsewhere. He charged $400 per event, plus gas fees for locations outside a 25-mile radius, and his income ran in the six figures, he says. So he accepted as many bookings as he could and quit his other jobs.

“By the second year I knew it was going to be huge,” he says. “It would take over everything.” And for a while it did. But after Sept. 11, 2001, business dropped off precipitously. Wedding pigeons began to seem like a luxury. Three years ago, Vitilio began to think about how to bolster his business. For 17 years he’d had a Harris hawk with a remarkably gentle disposition. Vitilio was impressed by its way with people. The bird, which he calls Harris, lets kids touch his reddish feathers and would fly to anyone. Vitilio already had been using the bird at exhibitions and community events, so in 2009 he offered it for weddings. “And it just went crazy,” he says. Vitilio worked up some theatrics around the hawk, having the best man pat down his pockets and look frantic when the wedding officiant asks for the rings. Then he’ll slip on a leather glove and Vitilio will cue the hawk to fly from the back and land on the best man’s arm with the rings attached to a pouch. Often, Vitilio says, grooms get dragged to wedding shows and wander around the cakes and dresses, looking bored until they see his hawk. “They’ll say, ‘Honey, I love ya. I don’t care if you have purple shoes and a green limousine – I want that hawk.’ ”

18 Final Sendak book a


tribute to his brother By HILLEL ITALIE The Associated Press

NEW YORK – The last completed book we are likely to get from Maurice Sendak remembers a man he often insisted was the real genius of the family, his brother Jack. Sendak died last May at age 83 after years of health problems, but had managed to finish “My Brother’s Book,” published this week. Admirers of “Where the Wild Things Maurice Sendak Are” and other Sendak stories will recognize its themes of danger, flight and fantasy, captured in a dreamyscary swirl that demonstrates Sendak’s debt to William Blake. Brothers Guy and Jack are blasted apart by a fiery star, Jack to “continents of ice” and Guy into the “lair of a bear” who tries to choke Guy and devour him. Guy enrages the bear by asking him a riddle and is flung upon a “couch of flowers/in an ice-ribbed underworld.” Inside a greenish curtain of blossoms, he spies the nose of Jack and bites it to make sure he has found him. “And Jack slept safe/Enfolded in his brother’s arms/And Guy

whispered ‘Good night/And you will dream of me.’ ” Tony Kushner, a close friend, says Sendak spoke often of his brother, who died in 1995, and longed to see him again – in whatever picture of the afterlife the skeptical author might have drawn in his mind. The brothers had worked on art projects since they were kids, and Maurice illustrated two children’s books by Jack, whom Maurice described as “much more talented” during a 2011 interview with The Associated Press. “I don’t think Maurice really believed that,” Kushner, the award-winning playwright and Oscar-nominated screenplay writer for “Lincoln,” said during a recent telephone interview. “Mastery is not just native talent. Mastery is also discipline and hard work and mastery of an art form. Maurice believed that to become a great artist you have to work very, very hard. Jack, for whatever reason, couldn’t quite pull himself together to do that.” “My Brother’s Book” is based on Shakespeare’s “A Winter’s Tale,” a bittersweet story of loss and reunion so personal to Sendak the author sobbed throughout a production Kushner took him to years ago, the playwright says. The book includes a foreword by Shakespeare scholar Stephen Greenblatt, who likens Send-

Greer to release essays

NEW YORK – Judy Greer is the latest celebrity with some funny stories to tell. Doubleday announced Tuesday it would publish Greer’s humorous

author himself. The playwright notes the illustrations for “My Brother’s Book” were a window into Sendak’s health and frame of mind. He had developed cataracts, and the work seemed to reflect, almost literally, the world as Sendak saw it.

Mini-reviews & local showtimes of CURRENT movies

On screen now “Identity Thief” HH Rated R for sexual content and language; 1 hour, 52 minutes

STARRING: Jason Bateman, Melissa McCarthy, Amanda Peet, Robert Patrick PLOT: When a Denver businessman (Bateman) discovers that a Florida woman has stolen his identity and destroyed his credit record, he travels to the Sunshine State to confront her. VERDICT: After a lengthy setup, this turns out to be a road comedy patterned after the “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” formula of forcing a family man to travel with a weirdo. The attempt is misguided, because McCarthy is an unrepentant crook who doesn’t earn the sympathy that John Candy did. Many other clichés are visited along the way. Despite the script’s slippery grasp on morality, Bateman and McCarthy still find ways to be funny and charming.

“Side Effects” HHH R for sexuality, nudity, violence and language, 1 hour, 46 minutes STARRING: Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum, Jude Law PLOT: Emily and Martin are a successful New York couple whose world unravels when a new drug prescribed by Emily’s psychiatrist – intended to treat anxiety – has unexpected side effects. VERDICT: If “Side Effects” is indeed Steven Soderbergh’s final film, as he’s said it will be after toying with the notion of retirement for a couple of years now, then intriguingly it feels like he’s coming full circle in some ways to the film that put him on the map: the trailblazing, 1989 indie “sex, lies and videotape.” Both are lurid genre exercises, laid bare. Both focus on the intertwined lives of four central figures, including a scene in which one of the men interviews one of the women on video, hoping to unearth a hidden truth. Both movies are about danger, secrets and manipulation, filled with characters who aren’t what they initially seem, all of which Soderbergh depicts with his typically cool detachment. The complexity of emotion, confusion and loss at the film’s start gives way to some acrobatic trickery by the end, but “Side Effects” is never less than

“Warm Bodies” HHH Rated PG-13 for zombie violence and some language, 1 hour, 37 minutes STARRING: Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, John Malkovich, Rob Corddry PLOT: A zombie boy (Hoult) who retains a vestige of his soul meets a human girl (Palmer) and falls in love. Eventually she returns his affections, but her father (Malkovich) is the zombie-hating leader of the local militia. VERDICT: Not only is this the first zombie romantic comedy, but also the first movie told from a zombie’s point of view (Hoult’s character narrates). In a low key way, the various story elements – romance, comedy, horror and suspense – work, but not always at the same time. Yet writer-director Jonathan Levine (“50/50”) pulls it all together with a sense of good cheer and, yes, heart. Hoult’s sympathetic and humorous performance provides much of the weird charm. – Jeffrey

Of the directors in the Oscar race, who are you rooting for?

I saw ‘Life of Pi’ recently, and I thought that was an extraordinary directorial and technical accomplishment. The way Ang [Lee] uses 3-D, it feels like you’re seeing the medium for the first time. ... The great thing about (awards season) is you take a beat to learn about filmmaking and see what other directors are doing. That’s a great way of thinking about the art form once a year in a concentrated way.

Are you getting recognized more on the street?

The joy about being a director is that when your film comes out you possibly get stopped a little bit, but within three months you can go back to being completely anonymous. And then you wait for the next one to come out and you’ll have a brief moment where people will recognize you. So it’s kind of great because if you’re a famous actor that process never stops.

Is that one reason directing appealed to you?

Yeah, I think I chose to be behind the camera because I didn’t want that. I always wanted to be the person behind the scenes.

What’s next?

Two years ago, I managed to not reveal that I was thinking about ‘Les Miserables’ at all. So I’m going to do the same this time and not reveal anything. “C” You At The Movies - McHenry Downtown Theatre

No director Oscar nod? No problem says Hooper By NICOLE EVATT


The Associated Press

f director Tom Hooper, who won the best-director Academy Award in 2010 for “The King’s Speech,” is bothered by not getting a nomination this year for “Les Miserables,” he’s not letting on. Instead, the British director says he’s relishing the musical’s many other accolades, including a Screen Actors Guild Award, three Golden Globe wins, nine BAFTA nominations and eight Oscar nods, including best picture, best actor for Hugh Jackman and best supporting actress for Anne Hathaway. (Hooper also was nominated for a Directors Guild award but lost to Ben Affleck for “Argo” over the weekend.) Hooper directed the HBO miniseries “John Adams” and the TV drama “Longford.” “Les Miserables” is an adaptation of a Broadway musical based on Victor Hugo’s novel. In a recent interview, he talked about fame, this year’s Academy Award nominations and who he’ll be rooting for during the Feb. 24 ceremony.

What are your thoughts on this year’s Oscar nominations?

I think it’s important in awards season to just be incredibly grateful for any recognition that you’ve already got and to not expect anything beyond it. I was very fortunate two years ago with ‘The King’s Speech,’ and this year it’s a year of extraordinarily wonderful and beautiful films. So it’s a very special year. So I’m just pleased to be part of it.

Besides ‘Les Mis,’ what’s your pick for best film of 2012?

I really loved the Woody Allen film ‘To Rome With Love,’ which hasn’t had any nominations at all. But I think Woody Allen remains an extraordinary storyteller. ... I mean it’s genius. Also, the way he just keeps working, it’s a great model for me. I’d love to be at his age and still making a film a year.
