Mental health chief on hot seat Probing questions from panel filling open spots By KEVIN P. CRAVER kcraver@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – McHenry County Mental Health Board President Lee Ellis could face a battle to stay on the board if his Wednesday interview was any indicator. Ellis was grilled by the

bents reapplying for an expiring term. Kurtz, the newly appointed committee chairwoman and a longtime critic of the Mental Health Board’s spending practices, started by asking Ellis why the amount for administrative costs has increased from 8.7 percent of the budget in 2008 to 19

percent in 2012. Almost $2.4 million of the board’s $13.15 million in revenue last year was listed in administrative line items. “In essence, what we’re seeing is an escalation, pretty dramatic, of personnel costs and administrative costs,” said Kurtz, R-Crystal Lake. “Right now, you’re on quite an upward trajectory.”

First year a test for marriages Different lives come from loss Those touched by shootings at NIU reflect 5 years later By DAVID THOMAS dthomas@shawmedia.com

Joe and Liz Bappert work together in the kitchen to make breakfast Sunday before heading to church. The married couple of 15 years spent their first year of marriage battling a paternity lawsuit. “It was devastating to us,” said Liz Bappert, but the couple persevered. By CHELSEA McDOUGALL cmcdougall@shawmedia.com

A

fter a fairy-tale wedding and quick honeymoon, Richmond couple Liz and Joe Bappert returned home to a surprise. Tucked in with mail that had collected during their vacation was a letter informing the Bapperts of a paternity lawsuit. Joe Bappert’s daughter’s biological mother alleged that

Expectations, finances and more explain why the honeymoon is over he was missing child-support payments. “Our wedding went off without a hitch,” Liz Bappert recalled of her wedding 15 years ago. “We went on our honeymoon and we came back and my husband had a paternity suit in the mail. ... I said, ‘This

is not cool, I can’t stay married to somebody like this.’ ” So much for the honeymoon period. Australian researchers found that the Bapperts might not be alone in a rocky first year. Deakin University’s Centre on Quality of Life found

that couples in the first year of marriage struggle more than those who have made the long haul. In the U.S., on average, one in 12 marriages will not last beyond the newlywed stage, according to Marital Mediation, a website that supports attorneys, mediators, social workers and counselors who deal with marital issues.

Every time he was falling asleep and heard the house creak, Eric Mace thought it was his daughter, Ryanne, coming back to their Carpentersville home from a date. It always was followed by the heartbreaking realization that it couldn’t be her. Mace’s daughter was one of five students killed Feb. 14, 2008, while sitting in an oceanography class in Cole Hall at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb. Former NIU student Steven Kazmierczak entered the room shortly after 3 p.m. and opened fire, killing Gayle Dubowski, Catalina Garcia, Julianna Gehant, Ryanne Mace and Daniel Parmenter. He left 21 others injured and then took his own life. At 3 p.m. today, as it has done for the past five years, the NIU community will honor those five by laying memorial wreaths at the Forward, Together Forward Memorial Garden next to Cole Hall. Remembering his daughter isn’t something Eric Mace struggles with. His family’s move from Carpentersville to

Cameras won’t turn courtrooms into big tops Journalists don’t agree on everything – even most things – but they’re fairly consistent when it comes to matters of free speech and public access to information. It’s been two weeks since some of my colleagues and I attended what was expected to be a forum on whether 22nd Judicial Circuit in McHenry County should consider a pilot program authorized and encouraged by Illinois Supreme Court Chief Justice Thomas Kilbride to allow cameras in Illinois courtrooms. The journalists in the room obviously were in favor of the program. The judges and attorneys who spoke reacted as though we were proposing reality game shows where victims, witnesses, defendants and lawyers were tortured for our amusement. The proverbial media circus rarely makes its way to McHenry County. I’ve juggled in a few, but they’re usually brief. Chicago or national camera crews pitch their tents for a day or two. Then they’re slogging toward

8LOTTERY

VIEWS Kevin Lyons Interstate 90 and wishing they had a news chopper. You find this attitude toward the media often in smaller communities, although it’s conflicted. There’s a chip on our shoulder that no one cares about us – then when the media do show up, we can’t wait for them to leave. I spent several years inside courtrooms on a daily basis in McHenry County – probably more than many lawyers. The Northwest Herald has had a full-time courthouse reporter in the building for decades. We’re the only media outlet who still does. During those years, I learned a ton. Just like anything else, there’s a perspective that you gain from observing a process every day that you can’t get from reading a book – or a newspaper. And I say that not to be pompous,

but actually the opposite. A journalist’s primary goal is to inform in the belief that a better informed public leads to a better society. We get frustrated when we can’t explain things as well as we should. Frankly, nothing could explain court proceedings better than seeing them yourself. And just like village board meetings, congressional hearings and the like, there’s simply no harm in recording them. Because of the volume of court exchanges and hearings I’ve witnessed, I have a deeper understanding and more respect for the judicial process than most. Of course it’s not perfect, but many would be surprised at how well it functions because they never get to see it. Between the meeting and a Facebook discussion that took place after I’d posted an editorial on cameras in the courtroom over the weekend, it became apparent just how many misconceptions there about how cameras in courtrooms, which have existed in other states for decades, would work.

1. These are pool photographers with still cameras and pool videographers relegated to the back of a room. No one’s going paparazzi on anyone. 2. The Illinois law puts the trial judge completely in charge. If the media does something he or she doesn’t like, the judge kicks them out and can do so at any time. 3. Neither the media nor anyone else is interested in a photo or video of your kid’s traffic ticket. If this stuff isn’t on page 1 of your local newspaper, no one is going to record it or take pictures. Those are just a few of the misconceptions out there. It’s clear that we have a long way to go to persuade local judges and the public that allowing cameras in court is a good idea, but I hope the dialogue will continue.

Curtis said he’s not asking his members for a full 40-day fast, just three or four days.

Carjacking victim: Fugitive ex-cop was calm The ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES – There was no question in Rick Heltebrake’s mind. The man standing before him on a rural mountain road was Christopher Dorner. Clad in camouflage from head to toe and wearing a bulletproof vest packed with ammunition, the most wanted man in America was just a few feet away, having emerged from a grove of trees holding a large assault-style rifle. As teams of officers who had sought the fugitive ex-Los Angeles police officer for a week were closing in, Dorner pointed the gun at Heltebrake

and ordered him out of his truck. “I don’t want to hurt you. Start walking and take your dog,” Heltebrake recalled Dorner saying during the carjacking Tuesday. The man, who wasn’t lugging any gear, got into the truck and drove away. Heltebrake, with his 3-year-old Dalmatian Suni in tow, called police when he heard a volley of gunfire erupt soon after, and then hid behind a tree. A short time later, police caught up with the man they believe was Dorner, surrounding a cabin where he’d taken refuge after crashing Heltebrake’s truck in the San Ber-

nardino Mountains 80 miles east of Los Angeles. A gunfight ensued in which one sheriff’s deputy was killed and another wounded. After the firefight ended, a SWAT team using an armored vehicle broke out the cabin’s windows and began knocking down walls. A fire started, and later, charred remains believed to be Dorner’s were found. San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon said Wednesday that the fire was not set on purpose. “We did not intentionally burn down that cabin to get Mr. Dorner out,” he said. His deputies lobbed pyro-

technic tear gas into the cabin, and it erupted in flames, he said. McMahon did not say directly that the tear gas started the blaze, and the cause of the fire was under investigation. The sheriff said authorities have not positively identified the remains. However, all evidence points to it being Dorner, he said, and the manhunt is considered over. A wallet and personal items, including a California driver’s license with the name Christopher Dorner, were found in the cabin debris, an official briefed on the investigation told The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity.

Boehner: Up to Dems to prevent budget cuts he would agree to in 2011 have been taken off the table since the election. “It hasn’t been real productive the last two years, and frankly every time I’ve gotten into one of these high-profile negotiations, it’s my rear end that got burnt,” Boehner said. “It’s just probably not the best way for our government to operate.” Obama stumped Wednesday in support of his minimum-wage plan, his calls for a manufacturing revival and his other State of the Union proposals in a trip to Asheville,

House speaker skeptical of Obama’s State of the Union proposals The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – House Speaker John Boehner said Wednesday it’s unlikely the Republican-controlled House and Democratic-led Senate will prevent a wave of spending cuts from beginning to strike the economy in two weeks. Yet he sounded hopeful about avoiding a partial shutdown of the government when a temporary spending bill expires next month.

Cloistered in his Capitol office overlooking the National Mall, Boehner said in an interview with The Associated Press that he was skeptical of many of President Barack Obama’s plans, laid out the night before in the annual State of the Union address. Boehner voiced doubts about Obama’s proposal for taxpayer-funded help for preschool education for all 4-year-olds, and would not commit to passing a pathway

to citizenship for the nation’s 11 million illegal immigrants, though doing so would be “somewhat helpful” to members of his party as they seek to regain support among HispanHouse Speaker John ics. “There’s no magic potion Boehner that’s going to solve our party’s woes with Hispanics,” he said.

Boehner also refused to swing behind any of Obama’s gun-control proposals and said he opposed the president’s plan to raise the minimum wage to $9 an hour. The Ohio Republican said he gets along well with Obama but admits their relationship hasn’t generated much in the way of results, pointing to failed budget talks in 2011 and last year. Boehner is frustrated that spending cuts Obama signaled

N.C., where he said: “If you work full time, you shouldn’t be in poverty.” The immediate agenda, though, is dominated by $85 billion in automatic, acrossthe-board spending cuts – called a sequester in Washington-speak. Boehner said he has no plans to resurrect legislation passed by Republicans last year to block this year’s sequester. The speaker said that until Obama puts forward a plan to avoid the sequester and Senate Democrats pass it, “we’re going to be stuck with it.”

Lt. gov. won’t seek re-election Simon keeping quiet on future political plans By SOPHIA TAREEN The Associated Press CHICAGO – Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon made it crystal clear Wednesday that her political future won’t include re-election next year, but she was more mysterious about what office she might seek instead, playing up her legal and fiscal background. The potential nod at Illinois’ attorney general, comptroller or treasurer comes as the 2014 governor’s race is heating up and some of those officeholders are mulling a challenge against Gov. Pat Quinn. Attorney General Lisa Madigan said Wednesday she still hasn’t decided. Simon, 51, repeatedly declined to give details about her political future during a three-minute news conference, instead touting her law-related background and accomplishments: pro bono lawyer, prosecutor and fiscally-prudent lieutenant governor among them. The Carbondale Democrat said she’d make an announcement in the coming months and was keeping her options open. “I have always been an advocate for Illinois,” she said. “I anticipate that I will be in public service running for office.” Political experts said the move points toward a possible run for attorney general, comptroller or treasurer, all of which are seen as step-

Cardinal Angelo Comastri puts ash on Pope Benedict XVI’s head during the celebration of Ash Wednesday Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica.

Tears, applause for Benedict XVI Pope conducts last public Mass By NICOLE WINFIELD The Associated Press VATICAN CITY – With a humble “Grazie” as bishops doffed their mitres and applause echoed through St. Peter’s Basilica, a frail Pope Benedict XVI began his long farewell by presiding over Ash Wednesday services in a tearful, final public Mass. “We wouldn’t be sincere, Your Holiness, if we didn’t tell you that there’s a veil of sad-

ness on our hearts this evening,” said Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, Benedict’s longtime deputy, his voice breaking. “Thank you for having given us the luminous example of the simple and humble worker in the vineyard of the Lord,” Bertone said, quoting Benedict’s own words when he first appeared before the faithful above St. Peter’s Square after he was elected pope. Smiling and clearly moved, Benedict responded, “Grazie. Now let us return to prayer” – his words bringing to an end the resounding applause that had grown in intensity over several minutes.

Then, in a rare gesture and sign of respect, the rows of bishops, some with tears in their eyes, removed their mitres. One prelate dabbed at his eyes with a handkerchief. “Viva il papa!” someone in the crowd shouted as the pope slowly made his way down the steps of the altar, assisted by two clergymen. He then departed St. Peter’s for the last time aboard a wheeled platform, sparing him the long walk down the aisle. Ash Wednesday marks the start of Lent, the most solemn season on the church’s liturgical calendar that ends with Holy Week, when the faithful

commemorate the death of Christ and his resurrection on Easter Sunday. By this Easter, on March 31, the church likely will have a new pope. In his final homily as pontiff, Benedict sent a clear message to his successor and those who will elect him of his hope for the future: a united church that isn’t “defiled” by internal rivalries. Each Christian, he said, is called to bear witness to the faith. “I think in particular of the attacks against the unity of the church, to the divisions in the ecclesial body,” he said.

Sources: American, US Airways will merge The ASSOCIATED PRESS DALLAS – American Airlines and US Airways agreed Wednesday to a merger that will create the world’s biggest airline. The deal caps a turbulent period of bankruptcies and consolidation that leaves the U.S. airline industry dominated by four big carriers. The boards of American parent AMR Corp. and US

Airways approved the deal late Wednesday, according to four people close to the situation. The carrier will keep the American Airlines name but will be run by US Airways CEO Doug Parker. American’s CEO, Tom Horton, will serve as chairman of the new company until mid-2014, these people said. They requested anonymity because the merg-

er negotiations were private. The deal has been in the works since August, when creditors pushed for merger talks so they could decide which earned them a better return: a merger or Horton’s plan for an independent airline. American has been restructuring under bankruptcy protection since late 2011. AMR creditors and possibly its shareholders will own 72

percent of the stock, and US Airways Group Inc. shareholders will get the rest, three of the people said. A formal announcement is expected today. If the deal is approved by AMR’s bankruptcy judge and antitrust regulators, the new American will have more than 900 planes, 3,200 daily flights and about 95,000 employees, not counting regional affiliates.

Also, her father, House Speaker Michael Madigan, is head of the state’s Democratic Party.

Madigan has declined to discuss her plans publicly. “I have not made up my mind yet about what I’m going to do,” she told reporters Wednesday. A number of Republicans – state Sen. Bill Brady, Sen. Kirk Dillard, Treasurer Dan Rutherford and U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock among them – have said they’re thinking about challenging Quinn, who says he’s ready to seek re-election. Former White House chief of staff Bill Daley, a Democrat, said he’s also mulling a primary challenge. Simon gave no clues about why she decided to make her announcement now and with such few details.

Percentage of spending that goes for administration has been disputed • MENTAL HEALTH Continued from page A1 Critics, which include the county’s largest social service agency, have accused the Mental Health Board in recent years of becoming a bureaucratic leviathan that spends millions in property-tax revenue on overhead that should be going directly to agencies treating the mentally disabled, as it was created to do. The Mental Health Board employs more than 30 people and almost quadrupled the size of its Crystal Lake headquarters through $3 million in federal economic stimulus bonds it now is paying back. It had employed close to 50 last year, but employees have been let go with the end of a federal grant and reassessment of other positions. Ellis challenged Kurtz’s percentage and said that the

true cost of administration is between 6 percent and 11 percent – he had cited 6 percent, without a spread, in a Jan. 30 guest column critical of the Northwest Herald’s coverage of the board’s expenses. “I don’t feel we’ve been excessive in our spending from an administrative standpoint,” Ellis said. A January financial report showed that the $8.7 million the Mental Health Board doled out to social service agencies last year amounted to about two-thirds of its budget, and that more than $4.4 million stayed internal. Ellis in his guest column said the $4.4 million includes “significant” funding to coordinate support of programs. The list of programs that Ellis cited in his guest column add up to $1.4 million, or just under one-third of the $4.4 million. Kurtz chided Ellis on the 6 percent figure he cited in his

guest column when he told the committee that he and the Mental Health Board are dedicated to transparency. “Six percent really sounds a lot better than 19 percent,” Kurtz said. “But 19 percent may in fact be the accurate number.” Ellis told the committee he would review the information and retract his statement if it is found to be incorrect. Former County Board member Mary Donner, who was the liaison to the Mental Health Board before losing her 2012 re-election bid, said in her interview that the administrative budget includes time that employees spend coordinating what clients need. Donner is applying for the one-year unexpired term of former member the Rev. James Swarthout. Ellis’ assertion on administrative costs later was contradicted by the other Mental HealthBoardincumbentapply-

ing for reappointment. Connee Meschini, who has questioned Mental Health Board spending in the past, said too much is being spent on administration and more money needs to be allocated to client agencies. Meschini also said that an independent audit needs to be conducted of the Mental Health Board – its annual audit typically is included in the yearly audit of county government. “I think there can be only so much coordination. We need services,” Meschini said. Wednesday’s questioning could be part of a new trend for how county government appoints members to more than 45 boards and commissions. One of new County Board Chairwoman Tina Hill’s legislative priorities is to strengthen the appointment and communication process. Donner herself faced some tough questions from Kurtz, who asked whether she had

“any regrets” in approving the mental health agency’s 22,000-square-foot expansion. “None. I have no regrets at all,” Donner answered. Committee member Mary McCann, R-Woodstock, told Kurtz after Ellis’ interview that she objected to the specificity of the questions being asked, and that the committee should focus on candidates’ willingness to serve. Kurtz and several other members disagreed – Sandra Fay Salgado, R-McHenry, said the time has come for tough questions. “In the past 12 years [I’ve been on the board], we have taken this very lightly and asked fluffy questions,” Salgado said. “Now is the time.” The committee will interview the remaining six candidates Friday, and could vote afterward to make its recommendations to the full County Board for approval. The number of applicants for the

Mental Health Board seats, which had been 16 before four dropped out, has been cited by critics alleging that the public wants more accountability and reform. The Mental Health Board vacancies come at a time of significant change of leadership. Executive Director Sandy Lewis left Nov. 9 to become an assistant professor of psychiatry and executive director of a children’s mental health center at Virginia Commonwealth University. The announcement of Lewis’ departure in August was couple with the announced the retirements of Deputy Director Bob Lesser and Clinical Director Liz Doyle. Homeowners pay about 14.4 cents per $100 in assessed valuation to fund the Mental Health Board, or about $87 a year for the owner of a $200,000 home who takes the homestead exemption.

Moving to different town High expectations, financial issues can strain first year Voice your opinion MARRIAGE helps victim’s family cope •Continued from page A1 • NIU Continued from page A1 Lake Petersburg a few years ago provided the escape they needed. “We had to get out of the house,” he said. “That was where Ryanne had grown up for a large portion of her life.” He also was bothered by children in his old neighborhood who would play outside, screaming as loud as they could. Mace described it as irritating before he lost his daughter, and maddening afterward. “I went out there and screamed back at them,” he said. “If they are not hurt, they should stop screaming like that. ... Kids are going to be kids – but I needed to be not in that situation. It got to be too much for me.” The shooting sent numerous people down unexpected paths. Joe Dubowski, who lost his daughter, Gayle, earned a master’s degree at NIU in Applied Family and Child Studies. He is now training to be a counselor. “I don’t know if I would have a career as a therapist if I didn’t go what I went through, in losing Gayle,” he said. “I had to learn to acknowledge my feelings a lot more. Rather than try to suppress pain in

my life, I had to acknowledge it. I became more self-aware and more sensitive to the feelings and motivations of people around me.” Others affected by that day, including Harold Ng, have reached out after other mass shootings to those now in the same situation. Ng was wounded when shotgun pellets grazed the back of his head during the NIU shooting. He has spoken via email with those affected by other tragedies. “I want to be there for individuals who have been through something as traumatic as that,” he said. The shooting has caused lasting anxiety for some. Sam Brunell, who was in Cole Hall during the shooting but was not injured, said she has a hard time sitting in large, crowded rooms, and sounds such as fireworks or a vehicle backfiring can trigger memories of the attack. Still, Brunell said she believes it put her on the path she was meant to travel. She switched her career focus from journalism to public administration, and now works at NIU’s Center for Governmental Studies. “You might as well live life to the fullest, and if for some reason something happens to you, you’re remembered in a good way,” she said.

But it is Valentine’s Day after all, and true love really can conquer all. The Bapperts, who have weathered more than 15 of them, are living proof. Joe and his ex were able to work it out, but not without a drawn-out custody battle. Joe and Liz both learned to listen and stay calm before flying off the handle. Liz Bappert said she was in shock after learning about the paternity suit. But once she gathered herself, she listened to what Joe was telling her – that his ex’s allegations were unfounded. Her husband showed Liz the canceled checks he had written. It was but one of many hurdles in their 15 years of marriage. One reason for a stormy first year is the anticipation that comes before the wedding, Australian researchers found. “Couples build up to the wedding day as the best day of their life, and then find reality biting as they [tally] up their wedding bills and get back to work after the honeymoon,” the study’s lead author, Melissa Weinberg, told The New Zealand Herald. Liz Bappert looks back fondly on her wedding day, but growing old with Joe is what she really looks forward to. “The wedding experience is once in a lifetime, but it’s just one day,” she said. “Every day

I look at my husband, there’s love that grows and keeps growing. There’s a sweetness and kindness there.” Another reason for the discontent in the first year of marriage, the study found, is a change in the financial circumstances that accompany marriage. Crystal Lake counselor Dan Blair echoed that. “The first year is described as one of the hardest, and I think that’s because there are a lot of adjustments to make,” he said. “Of course, we all come into a marriage with expectations that are somewhat idealized. And if that does not work out, there’s disappointment.” While living together before marriage could seem like an obvious precursor for post-

nuptial bliss, that’s not always the case, Blair said. “It’s a personal choice; however, studies show that it often does not help,” he said. “What’s needed to make a relationship work is commitment.” Married people tended to be happier than those who are single and significantly happier than those who are divorced or separated. The Bapperts found out that sometimes the road to lasting happiness is a little rocky. The couple, married in

1997, have had a series of ups and downs. After the jarring custody dispute, the Bapperts found out they couldn’t have children of their own, and Liz Bappert suffered through two autoimmune diseases. “Having such a deep love for our church, our family and for God, that’s what sustained us,” Liz Bappert said. “The thing is we didn’t go in [to marriage] with the mindset that this is going to fail. ... There’s a respect there, and I think that’s why it works.”

Enough words; time for action President Barack Obama always has been a master of words. The State of the Union speech he delivered Tuesday night to Congress was no different. He embodied the role of commander in chief. He demanded change that would For the record make for a better life for the middle President Barack Obama class. He asked gave another eloquent State of lawmakers to the Union address, and pitched help the poor by a number of exciting ideas. But increasing the until he and Congress deal with federal minimum the country’s out-of-control wage to $9 from deficits and record debt, every$7.25. thing else is empty rhetoric. He passionately demanded Congress at least call to a vote proposed measures that aim to curb gun violence, noting that since the tragic shooting at Newtown, Conn., on Dec. 14, more than 1,000 birthdays, graduations and anniversaries have been stolen by a bullet from a gun. Those victims, and their loved ones, deserve a vote, he said. There are many things that need to be accomplished in this country. We applaud Obama’s efforts to create more manufacturing and technology jobs, although we think government would do best to get out of the way by stop taxing and spending businesses and workers to death, and letting the free market do its thing. And we agree access to health care can be improved. We should stop pumping pollution into the Earth. Our education system needs to be brought into the 21st century. More kids should get early-childhood education. College needs to be more affordable. But such initiatives and ideas for new programs should be relegated to the back burner until Congress gets its financial house in order. In Illinois, there’s plenty to be done. But until pensions are fixed, there’s no money to do anything else. Likewise, the country’s debt should be the No. 1 priority. It’s time for real tax reform, for spending priorities to be declared and cuts to be made. Until the annual trillion-dollar deficits are eliminated, the horizon always will be filled with the looming threat of severe austerity measures no one will want to experience. And to clear away the clouds to a brighter future, lawmakers of all political stripes need to master the lost art of compromise, something we rarely see as legislating becomes more partisan with each passing year. Obama seemed to recognize that. He opened his speech by invoking John F. Kennedy Jr., who 51 years ago declared to Congress that “the Constitution makes us not rivals for power but partners for progress.” Americans, he said, don’t expect government to solve every problem, or for lawmakers to agree on every issue. “But they do expect us to put the nation’s interests before party,” he said. “They do expect us to forge reasonable compromise where we can. For they know that America moves forward only when we do so together, and that the responsibility of improving this union remains the task of us all.” We don’t disagree with that. But saying it is a long way from doing it. It’s the follow through that will matter. Otherwise, it’s just words. And we’ve had enough of those.

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Ideal candidate To the Letter: I must confess that, while I always vote, I don’t always know as much as I should about those running for office or the intricacies of the issues. In the April 9 election, however, I know exactly who I’ll vote for as a trustee for McHenry County College and why. That individual is Molly Walsh, who for so many of us for so many years was the “face” of our community college. Molly was the conference center coordinator between 1990 and 2008. If you attended veteran programs at the college, lectures at the conference center, or enjoyed one of the many bus tours, that was Molly’s domain. Her experience working at MCC plus her involvement with local nonprofit countywide organizations fostering environmental and civic betterment makes her an ideal candidate to govern the direction the college takes plus serve the taxpayers of McHenry County. Having Molly Walsh as a McHenry County College trustee would be the smartest decision we make. Nancy J. Fike McHenry

Empty promises To the Editor: While driving through McHenry and Crystal Lake on my way to work, I see signs, “Vote for Iron Mike, highway commissioner, reduce taxes.” If anyone believes that, then I have a bridge in Brooklyn I can sell

Let’s not experiment To the Editor: I have lived in Nunda Township for 22 years. My street and the surrounding area roads are maintained by the Nunda Township Highway Department, headed by Don Kopsell. Don and his hardworking crew keep our streets in an excellent state of repair and free of snow and ice in the winter. Don is up for re-election. Two other candidates are running against him for highway commissioner. It looks to me like petty politics at work because Don and his crew do such a great job. I am voting for Don and encourage all the people of Nunda Township to support Don. Let’s not experiment.

because banks are afraid to lend money with this administration in office. Four more years of rising utility bills when he shuts down our coal production, from which we get a lot of our energy. Four more years of weakening our military. Four more years of higher taxes. Four more years of blaming President George W. Bush for everything. Four more years of hundreds of thousands of babies being aborted. Four more years with the Obama administration in office and the United States will be in that porcelain fixture that we all have in our bathrooms. President Barack Obama has a chip on his shoulder against the U.S., and he wants to bring it down. Giving him four more years in the White House might be enough time for him to accomplish it. He can do a lot of irreversible damage in four years. This all could have been rectified had he not been re-elected. What a shame. William Michaelis McHenry

The feminist mystique at 50; what is Friedan’s legacy? WASHINGTON – Now is the time for all good women to pay homage to Betty Friedan, who 50 years ago wrote the game-changing manifesto “The Feminine Mystique.” With that book, Friedan helped propel a revolution led by, of all people, unhappy housewives. One feels silly even writing such a sentence, but revolutions have to start somewhere. Why not in the checkout line at the Piggly Wiggly? Or wherever Friedan, who actually was writing magazine stories the whole time she was bored, went to shop. Friedan did, indeed, identify and give shape to “the problem that has no name” – female angst born of privilege – but she also helped launch a flotilla of myths that have many women (and men) still scratching their heads. As her critics have noted, Friedan didn’t tackle any of the legal obstacles to women’s equality. Nor did she pay attention to women of color or members of the working class. She mostly noted that women like her – well-to-do, well-educated

and stifled by domestic bliss – wanted and deserved more. It simply wasn’t fair that men had fulfilling lives, intellectually and monetarily, while women were expected to find satisfaction in the latest invention aimed at whiter collars and cleaner toilet bowls. Anyone familiar with “The Stepford Wives” can grasp this notion. Thus, thousands of women like Friedan, recognizing themselves in her lament, charged out of their houses and into the streets. Doubtless I would have been a member of the stampede had I been of age, but as it happens, I was being raised by a widower and assumed that all men delighted in carpooling and cooking. How little I knew of the toils of sad, wealthy women. Thus, the feminist movement left the station without me except to the extent, as readers sometimes remind me, that I benefited from the protests of my foremothers. Indeed, I am grateful for the suffragists who thought my vote should be equal to any man’s. And I am thankful that

VIEWS Kathleen Parker the workplace into which I entered recognized my value. But the world in which I grew up never suggested otherwise. In all those years when Friedan and colleagues were demanding an equal rights amendment, I only heard words of encouragement from a lawyer/father who demanded much and often intoned: “An unnecessary law is always a bad law.” He never once suggested that a girl was in any way less capable than a boy in any arena (the combat exception was so obvious in a household of male warriors that no one bothered to debate it). The focus of most conversation was on simple principles: Hard work leads to accomplishment leads to self-respect. I could not divine a gender element to these truths. I also saw plenty of working women, including my pediatrician, as well

8THE FIRST AMENDMENT

as those who, despite having been professionals before becoming mothers, had chosen to run busy households. Nevertheless, I was marinating in a culture that was shifting and I was surely absorbing the zeitgeist. But members of my generation also were becoming unwitting hostages to myths that few were brave enough to challenge. My own skepticism came to full fruition the moment I became a mother. Unlike Friedan, I wasn’t tethered to home but to a job. Rather than resenting the prospect of staying home with a baby, I was stricken by the realization that I couldn’t. The “strange stirring, a sense of dissatisfaction, a yearning,” words Friedan used to describe thwarted ambition, was for me the sense of having abandoned my son. Revolutions are like children – eager and hopeful in the beginning, then, like teenagers, suddenly riotous and unruly. They have their own ideas about things and pick up friends who are bad influences. Sometimes they need to be spanked.

Fine, OK, a timeout. Fifty years later, Friedan’s movement has reached full adulthood and, one hopes, is seeing a shrink. Among lessons gleaned from the couch is that maturation requires recognizing our mistakes and our own roles in unwelcome consequences. What worked for privileged, educated women hasn’t worked so well for those at the other end of the socioeconomic spectrum. And while women have the same need as men to lead meaningful lives, the feminist mystique’s great failing was in advancing the notion that caring for children posed an obstacle to selfrealization. In a twist to delight The Fates, Friedan’s ultimate legacy may well be a stay-at-home dad, grateful for the latest appliance that liberates him to carpool and make organic treats – squealing oui, oui, oui! all the way home.

STUDENT ARRESTED FOR LOOK-ALIKE GUN WOODSTOCK – A Woodstock High School student was arrested Wednesday afternoon after staff saw him with a lookalike gun on school property. Alejandro Duron, 18, of 1621 Halma Lane, Woodstock, was charged with disorderly conduct, according to a news release from the Woodstock Police Department. A school employee saw the look-alike gun about 12:30 p.m. while walking through the south parking lot at the school, 501 W. South St., said District 200 spokeswoman Carol Smith. A student was showing the nonfunctional BB gun to another student, according to the release. “The weapon never entered the school building, and police determined that there was never any potential danger to students and staff at Woodstock High School,” Smith said. Parents were notified about the incident, and the school never went into lockdown, Smith said. Duron was released after posting $120 bond. His next court date is March 7. Students caught bringing weapons or look-alike weapons to school face mandatory expulsion of at least a year but not more than two years, according to the district’s parent and student handbook.

CRYSTAL LAKE – Ash Wednesday brought thousands from across McHenry County to church services Wednesday, but Catholic leaders fear some won’t return again until Easter, and then not until Christmas. St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church in Crystal Lake used text messaging during its Ash Wednesday services to try to retain some of those visitors. At the end of the service, the Rev. Jerome Koutnik told those with cellphones to text the word Saint Thomas to 84576 to receive information about upcoming services. Koutnik said it was an effort to turn “Chreasters” (people who go to church only on Easter, Christmas and other key religious holidays) into church regulars. “We know we’re going to see people on Ash Wednesday that we’re not going to see again until either Easter or Christmas,” Koutnik said. “We thought ‘How can we network technologically?’ to keep them active in the pursuit of this love of ours.” This year’s Ash Wednesday attendance had not been tallied,

Algonquin to raise price Community steps up of yearly swimming pass to help zoo after fire By JOSEPH BUSTOS jbustos@shawmedia.com ALGONQUIN – Preseason family swimming passes will cost $10 more this year under a village plan for enterprise funds – operations such as the municipal pool and water and sewer services that are supposed to be self-sustaining through user fees. The village plans to increase the family season swimming pass to $115 from $105 this year to offset costs of running the pool. The additional-member season pass fee, which was required for households with more than five members, will be

eliminated. The increase brings Algonquin in line with other municipalities and park districts, said Mike Kumbera, assistant to the village manager. “Even with the increase, we’re still the lowest municipal/park district swimming pool in the region. We’re still trying to keep that affordable.” The village has been using its general fund to supplement swimming pool operations. The village expects it to cost $204,000 to run the swimming pool this summer, with $78,000 coming from the general fund.

Candidates list their priorities • FORUM Continued from page B1 The winner of the race will face the township’s office administrator, Leda Drain, in April. Drain is running as an Independent. Both Provenzano and Jennings said they were motivated to run because of a discontent on the board. “The last three years, I’ve attended meetings that I felt were kindergarten classes versus board meetings,” Provenzano told the crowd of about 80 people. “The most important thing is we keep in mind who we represent – the taxpayers of Nunda Township, and we don’t allow our egos to get in the way and spend money unnecessarily because we can’t get along.” Jennings also said that, if elected, he would treat the supervisor role as a full-time job, and that trimming the budget would be his number one priority. “The town fund is in dire straits,” he said. “You have to start at every line item and cut if it’s not necessary. … Anything to cut expenses to get budget under control, and hopefully at some point build up the reserves.” Jenning’s wife, Susan, is running against Angela Koscavage for the clerk job. Neither husband nor wife thought there would be a conflict if they are on the board together. Both Susan Jennings and Koscavage answered questionsthatweresubmitted before or during the forum, and highlighted their own note-taking abilities and professionalism. In the highway commissioner race, seasoned businessmen are vying for the spot of a longtime incumbent. Highway Commissioner Don Kopsell has served 16

“The town fund is in dire straits. You have to start at every line item and cut if it’s not necessary. … Anything to cut expenses to get budget under control, and hopefully at some point build up the reserves.” Lee Jennings Nunda Township supervisor’s candidate years. Rob Parrish is a project manager for Geske and Sons, which has completed numerous road-paving jobs for Nunda Township. Mike Lesperance owns Iron Mike’s Excavating. Kopsell said his years of experience makes him the stand out candidate. “Neither candidate has the experience, and blacktop is only part of the township,” Kospell said. “Only part.” The challengers blasted Kopsell for nepotism within the road district. Kopsell’s wife is his secretary. They also criticized the highway commissioner for what they said was financial mismanagement. “Money is spent almost like lottery winnings,” Parrish said. Parrish also outlined specifically how he would gauge and plan for road projects and vehicle maintenance. Lesperance said he would make it a priority to pave all gravel roads in the township. Nunda Township covers parts of Crystal Lake, McHenry, Bull Valley, Lakemoor, Prairie Grove, Island Lake and Holiday Hills.

A St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic School student prays during the Ash Wednesday Mass at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church in Crystal Lake.

Church looks to texting, video to spread message • MESSAGES Continued from page B1 but Koutnik said that last year more than 8,000 people attended services. St. Thomas is using software called Flocknote, which is designed to help churches better communicate

with their congregations. Churchgoers can send a text to the number and have the option to receive church updates in the form of texts, emails or phone calls. As of 4 p.m. Wednesday, St. Thomas had received several hundred text messages, with two Ash Wednesday services still to go, said JoEllen Gregus,

director of adult education and evangelization. Gregus said the church plans to send messages throughout Lent to encourage people to attend services. The church plans to send video clips of Koutnik delivering brief messages. Koutnik said the Catholic Church isn’t great at turning

the occasional church visitor into a regular worshiper, and the technology push may be one answer to that problem. “Some Protestant groups aremuchbetteratevangelizing than the Catholic Church,” he said. “That’s a fact. We’ve got all the answers, but we’ve got no one out there spreading the message.”

Donations needed to replace supplies lost in fire • ZOO Continued from page B1 The barn, however, wasn’t as fortunate. The petting zoo business, which supplies animals for public and private events in the northwestern suburbs,

lost half of the barn in the blaze. The company’s food and hay supplies were wiped out. Water troughs were destroyed and so were their heaters. The Zoo Crew found temporary shelter for the more than 30 animals housed in the barn. The animals have been

used at functions for Donley’s Wild West Town in Union and in Hampshire and Gilberts. Places such as Destination Safe Haven in Marengo, Rescue Warriors Corp in Elgin and private residents stepped in as short-term foster parents for the animals until the Zoo Crew can find a barn.

The company still needs help.ItstartedaPayPalaccount under “TheMiniZooCrew@ hotmail.com” for donations to replace supplies. “People have stepped up and done so quickly,” Siebelkorn said. “It’s wonderful to know the community is behind us and is here for us.”

Water, sewer rates for Algonquin planned to remain level • ALGONQUIN Continued from page B1 “We really need to start thinking about long term, maybe short term, about what wewanttodo,”VillageManager Bill Ganek said. “There needs to be some policy discussion on this. ... The percentage of what general fund is supplementing is continuing to grow. ... There’s needs to be some discussion of where we’re going to go with the pool.”

Water and sewer rates are planned to remain level after a 7 percent increase for the current fiscal year. Kumbera said water and sewer revenue has been growing steadily because of annual rate increases. Hot, dry weather also led to higher demand for water in the village this year and last, Kumbera said. The village plans to buy a new Vactor truck, which is used to clean manholes and sewer lines, at a cost of $275,000

and sell its current truck. The village has budgeted $30,000 for another rate study, Kumbera said. “The study reviews capital assets and infrastructure that are related to the water and sewer operation and develops an appropriate replacement/ major maintenance schedule and associated costs for the same,” Kumbera said in an email. “It is at that time a determination of whether or not a rate adjustment is necessary and when.”

Honor for Ganek The Village Hall at 2200 Harnish Drive next week will be named “William J. Ganek Municipal Center.” Ganek, who is retiring after 21 years as village manager, will be replaced by Timothy Schloneger, the current Lockport city administrator. Schloneger’s first day on the job is Monday. Ganek was presented with the honor at Tuesday’s Committee of

Bill Ganek

Timothy Schloneger

the Whole meeting. Village President John Schmitt complimented Ganek for his frugality, integrity, class,

patience and ethics. Ganek said he was surprised by the honor. The Village Hall opened in 1996. “To me, there’s no higher honor, to have my name on this building,” Ganek said. “Everybody who has come through the door, our elected officials, our staff, our citizens, have come in here to make Algonquin better. Sometimes people agreed: sometimes we didn’t.”

CL South’s Schiller likely to miss rest of season Crystal Lake South forward Eric Schiller took a pass near the top of the key and was poised to bury a game-winning, buzzer-beater against Prairie Ridge on Tuesday night. Everyone on South’s side wondered how Schiller, Eric Schiller who was wide open, did not even draw iron on the attempt. It all made sense later.

“I think when I went up my [right] ankle gave out,” the 6-foot-3 senior said. “It felt weird, like I had no strength there. When I landed, it was the worst pain I’ve felt in my whole life.” Schiller visited an orthopedic surgeon Wednesday and was diagnosed with ligament damage, which likely will end his basketball season. He was averaging 7.9 rebounds a game and also leads the Gators (9-14 overall, 4-7 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division) in assists.

SOX INSIDER Meghan Montemurro

PREP ZONE Joe Stevenson “[The doctor] said there’s probably ligament damage,” Schiller said. “I go back in four weeks and if it’s still bad, they may have to do surgery and repair the ligaments. I’ll do my physical therapy and try my best to get out there for the regional. I know that’s farfetched, but I’ll do what I can.”

South plays in the IHSA Class 4A Jacobs Regional on Feb. 25. South coach Matt LePage said the Gators will miss Schiller’s allaround game. “In seven of the last eight games, he’s been in double digits in rebounds,” LePage said. “He leads us in rebounding and assists. He’s our glue guy with all the little things he does.” It is a role Schiller embraced, with players such as Nick Geske, Austin Rogers and Max Meitzler doing most of the scoring.

CLASS 4A CRYSTAL LAKE SOUTH REGIONAL

CL South, Cary-Grove reach final

Ventura’s reluctance misleading GLENDALE, Ariz. – In his first season as manager, Robin Ventura led the White Sox to the brink of the playoffs with 85 wins, only to fall short during the final week of the season. It makes sense the Sox would be interested in keeping Ventura beyond his current three-year contract, which ends after the 2014 season. It’s odd that Robin he didn’t jump at Ventura the chance when general manager Rick Hahn broached the idea during the offseason. Hahn offered, Ventura declined. “He’s been around long enough to realize that all of us in these positions have a certain shelf life, and he just wants to make sure that when the time comes to sign the extension that he’s confident he’s the right guy at that time,” general manager Rick Hahn said. “It’s really just a testament to him, how special he is in terms of his approach to this position and his focus on the job at hand.” Ventura’s unwillingness to commit beyond 2014 suggests he doesn’t want to stay with the Sox. But as Ventura explains it, there’s no rush to lock into more years when there’s still two full seasons to go. While the extension offer was “flattering and nice,” Ventura wants the Sox to believe he’s still the right guy for 2015 and beyond. Part of Ventura’s reasoning for holding off on any contract extension is his desire to be assured down the line that his coaches will also be taken care of. Ventura’s hesitance makes sense, though it raises questions if he’s only a placeholder for

“[LePage] told me at the beginning of the year to get in there and rebound and do the dirty work,” Schiller said. “I need to do a little bit of everything.” Schiller will wear a walking boot to help immobilize the foot for a while. Skonieczny to Illinois: Huntley junior catcher-outfielder Mark Skonieczny, who led the Red Raiders in RBIs last season, committed Monday to play baseball at Illinois.

Gators edge Prairie Ridge By MAUREEN LYNCH sportsdesk@nwherald.com

Crystal Lake South’s Sara Mickow shoots Wednesday against Prairie Ridge in a semifinal game of the Class 4A Crystal Lake South Regional. South won, 42-36.

CRYSTAL LAKE – Nearly 8 minutes. No field goals. It was all Lauren Del Vecchio needed to know when she ran through a throng of Prairie Ridge defenders to convert Crystal Lake South’s first field goal of the fourth quarter in Wednesday’s IHSA Class 4A Crystal Lake South regional semifinal. The Gators’ significant lead was gone; their emotions were starting to unravel. Prairie Ridge was 1:27 away from erasing two four-point losses to the Gators this season. Del Vecchio wasn’t having it. Coming out of a timeout with a two-point advantage, Del Vecchio got a pass from teammate Stephanie Oros and powered her way through, drew a foul and knocked down the ensuing free throw. The play iced the second-seeded Gators’ 42-36 victory over No. 3 Prairie Ridge, marking the third time this season the Gators have used last-minute heroics to beat the Wolves and end a rally. South will face top-seeded Cary-Grove at 7:30 p.m. Friday for the regional title. The Trojans beat No. 5 Crystal Lake Central, 47-24, in Wednesday’s first game. “Steph saw me and I just got to the middle,” Del Vecchio, a senior forward, said. “When I went to the line, I knew it was

I knew I had to knock it down.” South (23-6 overall) had not scored a field goal since the 1:29 mark in the third quarter when freshman Chanel Fanter hit a short jumper to help South lead by 10, 34-24, at the start of the fourth. The advantage was deceiving. The Wolves (19-10), who entered the second half trailing 25-11, turned what looked like a blowout into a barn-burner. Junior guard Sarah LeBeau’s third 3-pointer of the third quarter started a 13-4 run that spilled into the final 2 minutes

C-G’s Cullen takes top seed to Champaign By ROB SMITH

State qualifiers

rsmith@shawmedia.com The individual wrestling state finals begin today at Assembly Hall in Champaign for 36 area qualifiers. That number is up from 31 qualifiers last year, but this will be the first time in three years no area wrestler has entered the state tournament as a defending champion.

Crystal Lake Central was a large part of that with 10 of those titles in four years. And while there has been some impressive performances this season, no one enters the state tournament as an overwhelming favorite. Whether someone can step up to keep the championship streak

alive will be interesting to watch. Here’s a look at some possible state contenders from each of the three classes. Class 3A: With a 42-0 record this year and a fourth-place finish at state last year, Cary-Grove sophomore Michael Cullen enters the tournament as the top seed at 113 pounds. A state title for Cullen would be the first from the area in Class 3A. Despite the success, Cullen is ranked No. 4 by Illinoismatmen. com behind Marist’s Mark Duda (No. 1), Thornton’s Kris Williams (No. 2) and Lockport’s Brian Ros-

si (No. 3). Duda and Cullen could meet in the semifinals. Cullen must first get past a possible matchup in the quarterfinals with either fifth-ranked Ronald Triche of Providence or Naperville North’s Wayne Yuan (No. 10). C-G coach Ryan Ludwig said the Barrington Sectional was tougher than Cullen’s scores made it appear. At Barrington, Cullen defeated seventh-ranked Zac Denny of Harlem, 6-3, in the semifinals and New Trier’s Colin Kenyon, 11-1, in the finals.

Boston Celtics forward Brandon Bass celebrates after scoring as Bulls guard Marquis Teague walks past during the fourth quarter Wednesday in Boston. The Bulls lost, 71-69.

CELTICS 71, BULLS 69

First team to 70 wins By JIMMY GOLEN The Associated Press BOSTON – Kevin Garnett scored eight of his 12 points in the fourth quarter and added 11 rebounds, and the Boston Celtics overcame poor shooting to beat the Bulls, 71-69, Wednesday night. Paul Pierce went only 2 for 12 from the floor but he hit a 3-pointer that bounced around the rim to give Boston a fivepoint lead with 3 minutes to play. The Celtics shot just 36.8 percent but still had the advantage over the Bulls, who made just 36.5 percent of their shots. Joakim Noah had 10 points and 16 rebounds, and Carlos Boozer had 11 and 11 for the Bulls. Reserve Marco Belinelli added 12 points in under 20

Next for the Bulls Bulls at New Orleans, 7 p.m. Tuesday, CSN+, AM-1000 minutes for the Bulls. Garnett made a turnaround bank shot to give Boston a 6762 lead, then he went to the floor for a steal as both teams got sloppy. Three misses later, Luol Deng scored from the lane with 49 seconds left then the Bulls forced a five-second call on Boston’s attempt to inbound from a timeout. Belinelli came off a screen for a layup that made it a onepoint game, and the Bulls’ defense almost forced a shot

clock violation but Brandon Bass dished to Garnett in the final seconds and he quickly put up a jumper that made it 69-66. Boozer tipped in Nate Robinson’s missed 3-pointer, then Pierce hit a pair of free throws to again make it a three-point game. Robinson went to the foul line with 6.2 seconds to play, making the first and missing the second. Belinelli got the rebound and put up a 3-point attempt that was blocked by Jason Terry. Taj Gibson grabbed it and fired up another 3 that fell short as the buzzer sounded. The teams now break for All-Star weekend then the Celtics begin a five-game road trip and do not return to TD Garden until March 1.

8SPORTS SHORTS Big Ten considers ban on FCS football opponents The Big Ten is considering cutting back on the cupcakes. Conference officials are discussing no longer scheduling games against Football Championship Subdivision opponents. “We’ve made an agreement that our future games will all be Division I schools,” Wisconsin athletic director Barry Alvarez said on WIBA, a radio station in Madison, Wis. “It will not be FCS schools.” Teams from FCS, formally known as I-AA, have become common nonconference opponents for FBS teams because they will accept take a relatively big payday without asking for a game on their campus. Generally, they provide little more than a tuneup for the teams from college football’s highest level – with some notable exceptions such as Appalachian State winning at Michigan in 2007. Most of those matchups, though, don’t do much to generate excitement for fans or TV networks. And the lackluster games might prove to hurt a teams’ chances of getting picked to play in college

football’s four-team playoffs that will start in 2014 – when Maryland and Rutgers likely join the conference. That’s why the Big Ten is looking to beef up football schedules, with nine or 10 conference games and tougher nonconference opponents.

Former Bears receiver Knox ready to retire CHICAGO – Former Bears receiver Johnny Knox said he is giving up football. The Bears terminated Knox’s contract Tuesday after he missed this past season recovering from a back injury. Knox told the Chicago Sun-Times on Wednesday his career is over and he’s “moving on and going forward.” Knox said he’s not going to able to perform with the same ability he used to have. Knox said he knows “things will work out for the best.” He said he has no hard feelings toward the Bears. Knox needed surgery to stabilize a vertebra after he suffered a back injury against Seattle late in the 2011 season. Knox had 133 receptions for 2,214 yards from 2009 to 2011

and was on special teams with 55 kickoff returns for 1,506 yards.

NBA suspends Turkoglu after positive drug test ORLANDO, Fla. – Orlando Magic forward Hedo Turkoglu was suspended 20 games by the NBA on Wednesday after testing positive for steroids. The NBA said Turkoglu tested positive for methenolone, an anabolic steroid. He began serving the suspension Wednesday night when the Magic hosted the Atlanta Hawks.

Kentucky freshman Noel out for rest of season LEXINGTON, Ky. – Kentucky received the news it dreaded Wednesday when freshman forward Nerlens Noel was declared out for the season with a torn ligament in his left knee. Noel tore his ACL on Tuesday night when No. 25 Kentucky lost at Florida. An MRI revealed the injury, and the 6-foot-10 forward will have surgery in the next two or three weeks.

South’s Gil has something to prove • WRESTLING Continued from page C1 “I don’t think any of the wins was easy,” Ludwig said. “Wrestling two full six-minute matches will prepare [Cullen] for downstate.” With an 82-3 career record, Cullen’s experience exceeds his age. Ludwig said Cullen has made great strides this season. “He’s prepared, he’s more mature,” Ludwig said. “His demeanor on the mat is more mature. He has the maturity of a senior.” In what could be the toughest bracket in any of the three classes, Crystal Lake South’s Nick Gil looks to place at state at 126 after missing out by one match last year. Standing in his way are state champions Jordan Northrup of Harlem (113 last year) and Glenbard North’s Jered Cortez (120 last year). Gil lost to Northrup by decision at the Huntley Regional

and Barrington Sectional. Gators coach Ross Ryan said Gil is a student of the sport and wrestled Northrup better at sectionals than he did a regionals. “The game plan was to wrestle on our feet,” Ryan said. “[Gil’s] just got to continue that the next two periods. He goes right back to the drawing board.” McHenry’s Wade Lardy won the 145 title at Barrington with a win against second-ranked Justin Weber of Stevenson in the finals and is seeded No. 2 at state. Losing in the opening round last year at state and not qualifying for the consolation bracket has stuck with him, Lardy said. “I’ve been wanting this for a year. I’ve been needing this for a year,” Lardy said. Class 2A: Richmond-Burton’s Garrett Sutton (152) and Crystal Lake Central’s Andrew Marsden (170) enter state as Antioch Sectional champions

and No. 2 seeds. Sutton (34-0) is looking to improve on his third-place performance last year. Also returning state place winners from the Rockets are Cameron Kennedy (third) and Grant Sutton (fifth). Kennedy has placed in each of his three previous seasons. Marsden qualified for state for the first time with an impressive pinning performance at the Hampshire Regional and Antioch Sectional. He won by pin in his five matches. Class 1A: After a fourth-place finish last year at state, Harvard’s Anthony Luis enters this year’s tournament as the No. 2 seed. Luis, ranked No. 2, won the Oregon Sectional with two wins against top-6 ranked wrestlers. Standing in Luis’ way of a state title is top seeded Cody Minnick (44-0) from Coal City. Luis lost a chance to see Minnick in the finals of the Princeton Invitational with loss in the semifinals.

GIRLS BASKETBALL: CLASS 3A WOODSTOCK REGIONAL

Wuensch lifts Marian; Woodstock N. rolls By PATRICK MASON pmason@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – Whether it was rising to the occasion for a big game or her bright green shoes, Marian Central’s Shannon Wuensch had a first quarter she won’t soon forget. Wuensch showed why she is the Hurricanes’ all-time leading scorer, as she made five consecutive shots and scored 11 points while not missing a basket in the first quarter Wednesday, and Marian rolled to a 56-45 victory over Richmond-Burton in the semifinals of the Class 3A Woodstock Regional. Marian will face Woodstock North in Friday’s championship game. “We were just so excited to be in the position we are in,” Wuensch said. “We knew we had to come out and play a full four-quarters of basketball

and we all just had so much energy and everything was going in. “Once I made a few and the other girls made some, I think we were all just so excited to be clicking and everything was coming together.” Her teammates followed the senior’s lead as point guard Alissa Melchionna scored seven in the first quarter, while Hannah Davis and Ellen Koscielniak each contributed four. By the time the first eight minutes were up, the Hurricanes led 26-8 on 12 of 19 shooting. R-B (16-12) was able to muster production inside from Andrea Fox but it didn’t seem ready for the Hurricanes (15-11). The start surprised Marian coach Jacki Budmayr, who was hoping her team could get off to a fast start, but even she couldn’t have predicted what

to take it that far and that it would be that awesome.” R-B’s Andrea Fox scored a teamhigh 17 points. “What I was proud of was the way my girls battled,” first-year Rockets coach Courtney LuDois said.

Woodstock North 54, Marengo 40: Judging by how loud the fans were, it was evident from the start that the game between Marengo and Woodstock North was important. The Thunder (17-12) harnessed the moment and played consistently throughout with the solid leadership of point-gaurd Aleecia Braun. Braun controlled the offense and responded well to pressure when the Indians would try to trap the 5-foot-4 senior in the half-court. “We all look to her as a leader,” said Sami Ahr who scored 10 points for the

Thunder. “We look to her for guidance on the floor and motivation.” Braun scored 12 points to go with seven assists, and her teammates reaped the benefits of her play, most notably Emma Everly who was a force inside and from beyond the arc – she scored a team-high 15 points. The Indians (9-20) never held a lead, but they played tough and were led by senior Jessica Villie, who scored 20 points. After her team started the game down 10-4, Villie made a free throw, then forced two turnovers on the defensive end and converted those into four points, bringing the score to 10-9. She was also a part of the Indians’ surge in the third quarter. Villie scored five points in less than a minute to get within 29-28 but again the Indians couldn’t take the lead.

GIRLS BASKETBALL: CLASS 3A JOHNSBURG REGIONAL

Carmel knocks out Johnsburg in semis By BILL PEMSTEIN sportsdesk@nwherald.com JOHNSBURG – Johnsburg’s Kayla Toussaint and Katie Poczkalski each hit a 3-point shot in the first quarter Wednesday. And when Toussaint dropped in a two-point basket early in the second quarter, it looked like, just maybe, fourgame winner Johnsburg would be able to stay in the game with heavily favored Carmel. But the Corsairs (20-9) went on a 15-2 run to end any suspense in the Class 3A Johnsburg Regional semifinal, and they sent the Skyhawks (4-25) to a season-ending 48-30 defeat. Carmel will face Guerin in Friday’s championship game. “That’s a very good team,’’ Johnsburg coach Brad Frey said. “They were very aggressive and got to the ball.” The good news for the Skyhawks is 10 varsity players can sign up next year for more basketball. Of course, there were some goodbyes to make to seniors Jill Bazan, Marge Nusser, Megan Landazzi, Kallie DiTusa, Michaela Kopystynsky and Quiara Lawyer. “Our seniors were great leaders,’’ Frey said. “I’m proud to be associated with them. They all took their captain’s job seriously. They were there all summer. They were hard workers.” Carmel’s pressing defense gave the Skyhawks fits early as the Corsairs grabbed a 6-0 lead. Toussaint gave the home crowd

Johnsburg Regional Wednesday’s semifinals Carmel 48, Johnsburg 30 Guerin 46, North Chicago 32 Friday’s championship No. 2 Carmel vs. No. 7 Guerin, 7:30 p.m. some hope with her 3-pointer. Carmel answered with an 8-0 run to take a 14-3 lead late in the first quarter that looked daunting. Toussaint (eight points) opened the second quarter with a personal three-point run, and then the offensive game on both sides shut down. It was 16-9 Carmel for more than three minutes. “I was happy with that,’’ Frey said. “And then they went on a few runouts.” Carmel’s 6-foot-1 Kayla Quinn joined the offense, and the Corsairs opened a 24-11 halftime lead. Carmel coach Kelly Perz watched Johnsburg rout Chicago North Grand, 69-14, in the opening game of the regional. So her team was ready just in case the Skyhawks put on another show like that. “They had a nice game on Monday,’’ Perz said. “We had to be prepared for their shooters.” Frey got his seniors on the floor for the last time in the fourth quarter. That’s when Lawyer made good on a threepoint play. DiTusa, Kopystynsky and Nusser scored in the fourth quarter.

PREP ROUNDUP

Burlington Central holds off Hampshire By ROSS JACOBSON rjacobson@shawmedia.com BURLINGTON – The first half of Hampshire’s regional semifinal against Burlington Central on Wednesday felt eerily similar to its win over Sycamore on Monday as the Whip-Purs fell into a doubledigit deficit. But this time, the WhipPurs’ second-half rally fell short. Burlington Central built a nine-point lead after the first quarter and never trailed after the opening minutes in a 36-26 victory over Hampshire in the Class 3A Burlington Central Regional. “We were a little sloppy with the ball,” Burlington Central coach Mark Smith said. “ But overall I thought we, in the fourth quarter, we kept our composure, hit some free throws and got the job done.” After trailing by only four at halftime, Hampshire again found itself down double digits late in the third quarter. But a 9-0 run, capped by a layup by Emma Benoit from Jenny Dumoulin and a 3-pointer from Nikki Dumoulin brought the Whip-Purs to within three. However, Hampshire wouldn’t get any closer as the Rockets knocked down 10 of their final 12 free throws to

close the game. Jenny Dumoulin led the Whip-Purs with 12 points and five rebounds. Benoit also had six points in the loss.

BOYS BASKETBALL Hampshire 51, Johnsburg 38: At Hampshire, the Whip-Purs countered a staunch Johnsburg defense with a weapon of their own: Shane Hernandez. The Whip-Purs’ 6-foot-6 center blocked a career-high eight shots as Hampshire rolled to a Fox Valley Conference Fox Division win. “They were playing a zone which kind of slowed us down a bit, but we played very well defensively,” Hampshire coach Bob Barnett said. The Whip-Purs led by 23 points with four minutes left in the game. Senior Michael Dumoulin scored a game-high 14 points, senior Tyler Crater added 13, and junior Ryan Cork dished out a season-high 10 assists for Hampshire (20-4 overall, 9-2 FVC Fox). Senior T.J. Sigmund scored a team-high 10 points, and Steve Dixon added nine on a trio of 3-pointers for the Skyhawks (13-12, 5-6). • Chris Burrows contributed to this report.

Jakubicek scores 19 for Cary-Grove in victory • CLASS 4A Continued from page C1 of the fourth and pulled the Wolves within five, 37-32. South guard Carly Nolan hit three of her four free throws at the start of the fourth, but the Gators were otherwise quiet while Prairie Ridge made its case for the upset. With 1:42 remaining,

Wolves junior Alex Neckopulos was fouled on a short jumper and finished the three-point play to cut it to two, 37-35. South called timeout. Then came Del Vecchio’s play – the quintessential ending to the crosstown rivalry this year. “They have a knack for winning close games at the end,” Prairie Ridge coach Rob Baker said. “I cannot

fault the effort the kids gave. We came out in the second half and figured we’d go out and see what happens. … We just ran out of gas.” Cary-Grove (22-6), by contrast, paced itself against Central (13-16). The Trojans, who have not lost in 2013, pulled away in the second quarter behind six of senior forward Olivia Jakubicek’s 19 points. Senior guard Kylie Smith hit back-

to-back 3-pointers in the final 1:30 of the first half to help C-G lead 25-11 at halftime. Sophomore Katie Barker was 2 for 2 from behind the arc in the third quarter, and her second 3-pointer put the game out of reach, 37-15. “Any game now could end the season,” Jakubicek said. “We definitely had that in mind early in the game to shut them down and go inside, and it worked.”

Huntley catcher Skonieczny chooses Illinois • PREP ZONE Continued from page C1 Skonieczny (5-11, 195 pounds) hit .340 with two home runs, six doubles and 23 RBIs last season. He also was not charged with an error. He heard from Indiana, Notre Dame, Purdue and Valparaiso over the summer, then Illinois saw him late in the summer at a pair of showcases. “I liked their proven track record with catchers and academics with their players,” said Skonieczny, whose GPA is 3.5. He declined to talk about the amount of the scholarship offer. Skonieczny played with Pro Player Consultants’ 17U team last summer. He also said Gary Swanson, who runs

Powerhouse Gym out of a large garage adjacent to his home in Union, and speed trainer Rocky Scalise, who owns Going Vertical in Huntley, were instrumental in helping him reach his goals. “It’s an unbelievable opportunity,” Skonieczny said. “I couldn’t ask Mark for anything more.” Skonieczny Skonieczny, who was a Northwest Herald AllArea honorable-mention selection last season, said he started catching when he was 6. “You’re involved in every play,” he said. “That’s why I like it.” Slimko to Bowling Green: Crystal Lake

South junior Nicole Slimko, a 6-foot outside hitter, has committed to Bowling Green to play volleyball. Slimko was a Northwest Herald All-Area second-team selection last season. Slimko played a key role in helping South become FVC Valley Division co-champion with Prairie Ridge. Last summer, she played with Sky High Volleyball Club’s 16 Black team. Her father, Mark, played basketball at Jacobs and then played at the Air Force Academy. • Joe Stevenson is a senior sports writer for the Northwest Herald.

OUTDOORS & PRO BASEBALL

Northwest Herald / NWHerald.com

Even after 41 years, Petros’ fishing classes still relevant Ted Takasaki is probably the most famous walleye fisherman on the planet. He has won countless tournaments on many circuits. He was the first walleye fisherman to win $100,000 in a single tournament. He has the biggest single-day catch in a pro walleye tournament – five fish that weighed an incredible 53.2 pounds. They certainly don’t come better than Ted. Surprisingly, Takasaki began his pro walleye career as a resident of Algonquin. Face it, people, Illinois is not particularly noted for its spectacular walleye fishing so Ted making it big from these parts was extra special. He and his regular partner, John Campbell worked full-time for HP and squeezed in tournaments when they could fit them into their daytime job work schedules. They fished the MWC, a partner tournament series, and did quite well. They split up to fish the PWT, and both began to shine as solo competitors. Ted was soon able to quit his day job and concentrate solely on fishing. In addition to tournaments, sponsorships, appearances, lectures, seminars, tackle design, tapes, videos, books, articles and TV, he became the president of Lindy Legendary Tackle. It’s a great story that many weekend anglers dream of achieving. What gave Ted Takasaki the confidence to turn into a professional walleye angler? He told me, “Steve, John Campbell and I took the Spence Petros Fishing Classes a long time ago, and that was the beginning. Spence taught us to become better fishermen. We took the knowledge he gave us and put it into practice out on the water. The classes were definitely what put us on the road to our careers.” Jim Saric of TV’s “Musky Hunter” show was also a Petros student. In addition to TV, Saric owns “Musky Hunter” magazine and is in high demand for appearances and seminars. Saric is, without a doubt, the best muskie fisherman in North America. He told me, “I’ve fished all my life and always did pretty well, but attending the Spence Petros Fishing Classes was what made me good enough to gain the confidence to become what I’ve become in the world of fishing. Spence is the greatest.” Takasaki, Campbell and Saric are but a few of the luminaries who have graduated from Spence’s “school.” I have never heard of anyone who came away from the classes thinking their time and money could have been better spent doing something else. Petros grew up on the West Side of Chicago and fished in Chicago Park District lagoon tournaments at an early age. Of course, he usually won, and that competitive urge is probably what has pushed him to greatness. He was the editor of “Fishing Facts” magazine, hosted “The Outdoor Writers” on national TV. He has designed tackle, written for many magazines and is a regular guest on the Babe Winkelman and Joe Bucher shows. McHenry resident Petros is bringing his legendary Spence Petros Fishing Classes back for the 41st year. I can’t stress this strongly enough. Don’t miss these classes. They will do more for

Northern Illinois: Fish at your own risk. From everything I’ve seen, there are plenty of waters with safe ice, but it’s up to you to test. You really don’t want to be the first one out on the ice. This is the kind of fishing where it is OK to follow the crowd. Don’t forget your rope, spikes, spud bar and flotation devices. The biggest problem facing anglers is the slush, snow and water that are on top of the ice. You need to wear cleats because it is so easy to fall and hurt yourself. Also, make sure your boots are waterproof before you head out. Once your feet get wet, the party is over. I use a product called Camp-Dry that seems to really do the trick.

By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO your fishing skills than anything else you can do for yourself. There is no magic rod and reel, no super-duper lure, no book or video that will have you catching bigger fish or more fish than the Spence Petros Fishing Classes. I know that I write about these classes every year around this time. I am sorry if you are tired of reading about them, but I will not stop until Spence does. I owe any fishing talents that I may have to Petros. I took his classes more than a decade ago. What Spence taught me was so amazing that I had to forget what I had learned over years of fishing experience and switch over to fishing the way Professor Petros taught me. Petros is in his 70s now, but don’t let that fool you. He can probably still kick the butts of most of the attendees in his classes. He doesn’t look his age and sure doesn’t act it, either. Although Spence has been teaching his classes for 41 years, his classes aren’t repeats. Every year, he comes up with new methods and approaches that really work. Petros is the best multispecies fisherman I have ever had the privilege of sharing a boat with. He is just as good at finding and catching big bluegills and crappies on a local pond as he is at catching behemoth muskies in Canada. As always, Petros is offering two separate five-week “Fishing Schools.” The first set of classes covers bass and panfish and runs March 12 to April, 9. Each class runs from 7:30 p.m. until at least 9:30 p.m. That’s five Tuesday nights at two hours each – a total of 10 hours of quality fishing education – for only $80. The second school covers pike, walleye and muskie and runs March 13 to April 10. Same great deal – 10 hours-plus of Spence for only $80. The class is perfect for anglers of all skill levels. Spence makes sure he doesn’t teach over the heads of the beginners or too basically for the seasoned veterans. The class has many women and children who attend. The classes take place at the American Legion Post at 122 W. Palatine Road in Palatine, 2 miles west of Route 53 on the north side of Palatine Road. It’s just minutes from Woodfield Mall and Arlington Park Racetrack. Attendees can purchase beverages, both soft and hard, at the Legion’s downstairs bar. Spence’s classes fill up quickly.

New Cubs reliever Kyuji Fujikawa throws to first base during a spring training workout Tuesday in Mesa, Ariz.

CUBS SPRING TRAINING

Pitching helps change outlook Starting depth cause for optimism The ASSOCIATED PRESS MESA, Ariz. – Cubs manager Dale Sveum knows exactly what he’ll say about last year’s 101-loss season when he meets with his team for the first time this spring. “I probably won’t mention last year, to tell you the truth,” the Cubs’ second-year manager said. “This is about this year and the organization moving on and the 25 guys going north. So I don’t want to be talking about last year at all.” The Cubs’ first full-squad workout is scheduled for Sunday. Making the task of forgetting the worst Cubs season in more than 40 years a little easier is the fact the front office overhauled a pitching staff that finished last season with more walks than anyone else in the National League and with Triple-A pitchers making 40 of the final 62 starts. In one of baseball’s surprise moves of the offseason, the Cubs signed durable starter Edwin Jackson to a four-year, $52 million deal to join Jeff Samardzija and Matt Garza at the top of the rotation. They also added Scott Baker, Scott Feldman and

Carlos Villanueva to join Travis Wood in a competition for the two other spots. In the bullpen, closer Carlos Marmol returns along with top left-hander James Russell and experienced middle man Shawn Camp. Instead of filling out the rest of the pen with rookies, as they did last season, the Cubs added former Japanese All-Star closer Kyuji Fujikawa as a free agent. And one or two of the rotation candidates figure to fall to the bullpen, adding even more experience. “We run seven deep in starting pitchers. That’s going to make our bullpen better,” team president Theo Epstein said. “We just got through running through every single pitcher in camp with the entire coaching staff [during a staff meeting Sunday morning]. “It’s night and day in terms of quality and depth, in terms of what we were looking at toward the end of last season. Especially after the trades we made at the deadline and then with Garza going down [with an elbow injury], there were times when we were scrambling just to put a pitching staff out there, let alone have it be the one that we wanted.”

Ventura, Ozzie opposites • SOX Continued from page C1 the Sox – a way to eradicate the tumultuous Ozzie Guillen era and bring positive vibes back to the organization. He was an unconventional choice when the Sox hired him in that Ventura had no managerial experience at any level. Ventura even acknowledged some reservations before accepting the job and Wednesday, he avoided being labeled a “lifer.” With Ventura clearly uncertain what his managerial future holds after next year, it’s best that both sides hold off on contract talks. “It wasn’t anything that was a big deal, so I’m not holding out for anything or disappointed in not wanting to stay here,” Ventura said. “I think at the end of that, that’s

when you talk about it.” It’s refreshing that unlike his predecessor Ventura isn’t worried about his next paycheck or financial security. That, Hahn said, makes him “the exception and not the rule in this game.” “My hope is that Robin’s here for a long, long time,” Hahn said. “You can’t obviously foresee the future, but I suspect when the time comes that there is a new manager it’s that Robin decided personally he’s not wanting to continue or he’s not the right guy or the best guy to lead the White Sox at that time. My hope is that’s far into the future.” • Meghan Montemurro covers the White Sox and Cubs for Shaw Media. Write to her at mmontemurro@ shawmedia.com. Follow her on Twitter: @M_Montemurro.

GLENDALE, Ariz. – At 24 years old, White Sox former first-round draft pick Jared Mitchell is finally approaching the big leagues. Mitchell, the 23rd overall pick in 2009, still needs to hit for a better average and cut down his strikeouts. But the outfielder possesses the all-around tools to become an impact player on the Sox, po- Jared tentially at some Mitchell point this season. Mitchell is staying focused on trying to improve his game and wait for the call. “Pro ball is something new to me, like it is to everyone that comes in here,” Mitchell said. “There was no sort of timetable or plan however it goes. I just work every day to try to get better every day. “I feel like if I’m not utilizing my whole game with the skill set that I have, I’m not fulfilling my potential really.” Mitchell missed the 2010 season after a gruesome ankle injury during spring training. Giving Mitchell at-bats remains a priority for the Sox, which is why he will start the season at Triple-A Charlotte, barring something strange happening, general manager Rick Hahn said. “Our plan from the start has always been to get him out there playing in games,” Hahn said. “ … Instead he’ll be playing on an everyday basis at Charlotte, pushing us to hopefully bring him up based on his performance as the season goes on.” Reed not resting on laurels: Reliever Addison Reed could have reported to camp under the expectation he is the Sox’s closer. But that’s not the situation. Despite recording 29 saves last season, Reed is approaching spring training as if he must win the job again. Manager Robin Ventura appreciates Reed’s philosophy and said “he’s hungry.” For Reed, he just wants to prove he’s still the most worthy for the position. “I don’t think I have that position on lock at all,” Reed said. “I will do what I did last spring training and try to get that closer spot. That’s all I’ve ever wanted to do and all I ever dreamed of, so I’m going to try and get that spot again this year.” Crain eager to play in WBC: For the third time in his career, Jesse Crain is representing Canada in the World Baseball Classic and the 31-year-old right-hander is embracing the opportunity. Crain will report March 3, and though he will miss time with the Sox, he doesn’t believe the absence will affect him. He will pitch in two or three games with the Sox ahead of the WBC. “For a bullpen guy, it’s a lot easier,” Crain said. “I’ll throw an inning at a time. I won’t throw two days in a row. I’ll get three games in before I go, so it’s not going to be too much different. Whenever I go out there, whether it’s spring training or in a regular game, I go out with the same intensity no matter what.”

The 49ers (18-6, 6-4) went on a 7-1 run late in the game and then held on after Butller closed to within one.

The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHAMPAIGN – D.J. Richardson scored 18 points and Illinois opened up a big first-half lead that buried Purdue, 79-59, on Wednesday night. The win was the third straight for Illinois (18-8, 5-7 Big Ten), which is clawing its way back into the postseason picture. The other wins were resume-builders over No. 1 Indiana and then-No. 18 Minnesota. A dunk by Tyler Griffey with 8:46 remaining put Illinois up, 64-46. The margin was too much for a Boilermakers team that had already tried to dig out of a 16-point first-half hole. Griffey scored 12 points and Joseph Bertrand had a career-high 12 rebounds. Terone Johnson led Purdue (1213, 5-7) with 18 points. Boilermakers coach Matt Painter was ejected for arguing with official Tim Clougherty with just over eight minutes to play. Illinois led, 43-29, at the half, putting up is highest first-half point total since it had 47 against Auburn in an 81-79 win on Dec. 29. No. 1 Indiana 76, Nebraska 47: At Bloomington, Ind.,Cody Zeller scored 16 points and Christian Watford finished with 13 points and 11 rebounds to help No. 1 Indiana pull away from Nebraska. The Hoosiers (22-3, 10-2 Big Ten) have won seven of eight and regained a share of the league lead. But it wasn’t easy early against Nebraska (12-13, 3-9), which frustrated Indiana by limiting possessions and repeatedly taking the shot clock

No. 21 Notre Dame 82, DePaul 78, OT: At Sound Bend, Ind., Jerian Grant scored 21 points, including a big three-point play in overtime, to lift Notre Dame past DePaul in overtime for the second time in 11 days. It appeared the Fighting Irish (20-5, 8-4 Big East) might cruise to victory until the Blue Demons (1014, 1-10) used an 11-1 run to take the lead. Notre Dame then rallied to force overtime – four days after beating Louisville in five overtimes. Cleveland Melvin led DePaul with 23 points.

Grandma pays good money Healthy lunch keeps energy up to keep kids from smoking Dear Abby: It bothers me greatly to know that so many children continue to start smoking at an early age. My husband and I did that, and now we’re paying an awful price. We have had emphysema for years. Four of our children also took up the habit. I finally started paying them to quit ($100 every two weeks they didn’t smoke – up to five payments). I decided to head off the temptation our grandchildren would face. We told them if they didn’t start smoking by the age of 18, we’d pay them $2,000. So far, seven of the 10 have collected a nice check on their 18th birthday, and we expect the remaining three to collect in turn. They have grown up understanding cigarettes are “gross” and, if they start smoking, it will cost them a lot of money. Abby, you’re the best way to spread ideas. I hope you will think it worthwhile to pass this one along. – Do As I Say, Gainesville, Fla. Dear Do As I Say: I’m passing it along, but frankly, I’m not crazy about bribery. One would think that, having witnessed firsthand the serious health issues you and your husband are experiencing, your grandchildren would have understood what awaited them if they took up the habit. The tobacco industry has

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips done a huge disservice to young people by marketing their products to them – and not just in the form of cigarettes, but also with flavored chewing tobacco, which is equally addictive. According to the U.S. Surgeon General, nearly 90 percent of smokers start by age 18. In 2006, U.S. District Judge Gladys E. Kessler of Washington, D.C., ruled the major cigarette manufacturers were guilty of fraud and racketeering under the federal RICO Act. (When the tobacco companies appealed, the Supreme Court rejected it without comment.) She wrote that for more than 50 years the tobacco industry “lied, misrepresented and deceived the American public, including smokers and the young people they avidly sought as ‘replacement smokers,’ about the devastating effects of smoking.... “They suppressed research, they destroyed documents, they manipulated the use of nicotine so as to increase and perpetuate addiction, they distorted the truth ... so as to discourage smokers from quitting.” It is extremely important

young people be educated about – and prevented from – using tobacco. Smokers who start as teenagers increase their chances of becoming addicted. Think about it: reduced lung function, early heart disease, cancer, asthma, disfigurement. Yes – it could happen to YOU. Dear Abby: I have a wonderful husband and adorable grandchildren, but I have developed deep feelings for a man I met at the gym where I go with a friend. I find myself thinking of this man during the day and night. I don’t want to have an affair nor do I want him to know what I feel. When the thoughts of him come, they overwhelm me so I try to pray. I have no plans to cheat on my husband. What else can I do? – Confidential In

Greenville, N.C. Dear Confidential: Because you have a wonderful husband and a life you do not want to be disrupted, I recommend when you finish exercising at the gym you take a COLD shower. And if that doesn’t work, go to an all-female gym.

Happy Valentines Day To My Readers: Thanks to you, writing this column is a love-in every day of the year.

Dear Dr. K: Can you give me some tips for eating a healthy but satisfying lunch? Dear Reader: Yes, I can, but first let me observe many of my patients seem to think what doctors recommend as a “healthy” diet is just today’s latest fad. They think the advice could change next year. That’s wrong. The advice I’ll give you is based on 50 years of studies involving millions of people whose diets and health have been studied for decades. In other words, it has a strong scientific basis. At least as important, you can follow the advice and have delicious meals – healthy food can taste really good. Back to your question. Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, but don’t give your lunch short shrift. Eating lunch helps maintain your blood sugar level so your energy won’t take a midday dive. A healthy lunch also will help you concentrate and function better in the afternoon, and it will help you avoid hunger that can lead to overeating at dinner. Do you tend to forget about lunch until you’re

starving, and then reach for the nearest bagel or burger? If so, you know the importance of planning ahead. When possible, bring your lunch from home. If you’ll be eating in a restaurant or cafeteria, make healthy selections. A healthy, balanced lunch should include three food groups: lean protein, whole-grain carbohydrates, and fruits and vegetables. Roughly half of your plate should be vegetables or fruit. One-quarter should be lean protein. That can include fish, chicken, turkey, tofu or lowfat cottage cheese. And onequarter of your plate should be whole grains; for example, one slice of whole-grain bread, or a half cup of brown rice, whole-wheat pasta or quinoa. I’ve put a number of specific lunch ideas on my website. Frozen microwavable entrees tend to be a popular lunch choice. Look for those with no more than

350 calories, 4 grams or less of saturated fat, 15 grams or more of protein, and 600 milligrams or less of sodium per serving. Supplement the entree with a handful of baby carrots or fresh fruit to make it more filling and nutritionally complete. If you tend to grab food on the fly – perhaps eating a croissant on the way to a meeting – mentally account for those calories. Say to yourself, “This is part of lunch.” Then fill in with an apple and a carton of nonfat plain yogurt as soon as you get the chance. Or consider alternatives to croissants that also taste delicious but deliver healthier calories. For example, I snack most afternoons on a small bag of mixed nuts. Nuts are full of “good” fats, whereas croissants are full of “bad” fats. Finally, use your lunchtime as an opportunity to get away from your desk. Eat a quick, healthy meal, and then go for a brisk walk.

HOROSCOPE

TODAY - It looks like a greater amount of travel is probable for you in the year ahead, though it might not be to faraway places. Regardless of the distance, your trips will provide you with a wealth of memories. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You always require a degree of independence and freedom in life, so don’t hem yourself in with a tight itinerary. Leave plenty of room for impromptu developments. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- There is a good possibility that you will collect payment on an old loan that you had completely written off. If this should occur, be appreciative without overdoing it. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Challenging conditions are more likely to stimulate your positive qualities than negative ones. Success makes you feel like a winner. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A friend for whom you did a favor will find an opportunity to repay you. Your pal will step to the plate without being asked. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It’s to your benefit to study the successful procedures of an associate. You’re likely to discover some new tactics that you could put to good use. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Resistance you are facing on a major project can be alleviated if you just make a few tweaks. Once these are implemented, you can go forward with alacrity and aplomb. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Be sure that what you do at work also produces benefits for your co-workers. They, in turn, will be more responsive to your needs and requests. Remember, one hand washes the other. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Work on an endeavor that can either be updated or transformed into something far more useful. The rewards for doing so will be larger than you think. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- What cannot be accomplished on your own can be achieved through a strong team effort. The secret is picking the right helpers who’ll stay with the project until the end. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- In order to feel gratified, you need to get involved in something that you can see through to its completion. Only then will you feel like you’re putting your time to good use. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Participating in some kind of activity that is unrelated to your workaday world could do wonders to refurbish your outlook on life. Find something different to do that you’ll enjoy. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Don’t be afraid to spend a little of your funds in hopes of future gain, because in order to make more of anything, including money, it is necessary to prime the pump.

Model Kloss steps off runway Karlie Kloss is a favorite finale model, closing the catwalk again Wednesday for Michael Kors at New York Fashion Week. She did the same the night before, escorting Oscar de la Renta for his bow. It’s these close ties to fashion designers that put her on the red-eye from Los Angeles after the Grammy Awards on Sunday so she could make it to Carolina Herrera’s runway bright and early the next morning. “These are my friends. That’s why I got back in time. It’s a family reunion at Fashion Week,” Kloss said. She did have a blast acting as MTV’s red-carpet hostess and style expert. “It was really interesting to be on the other side. I got to talk to Jennifer Lopez about her Anthony Vaccarello gown – and I was in the Anthony Vaccarello show,” Kloss said. “I don’t know everything about music, but my knowledge of fashion let me enjoy it all and I could bring that element to it. ... It was full circle, and that made it fun.” Still, Kloss said, while she is still offered runway work, it’s her first love. She recently took in a fashion show in Berlin for the first time as a front-row guest. “I’d rather be walking, but the experience did give me a new perspective. I might be a little more aware of what I look like.” Kloss is serving as Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week’s fashion ambassador.

Banana Joe on Broadway

First lady plugs ‘Beasts’

The Best in Show winner at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is heading to Broadway. Not to see a show – to be in one. The Roundabout Theatre Company said Banana Joe, the 5-year-old affenpinscher who emerged triumphant Tuesday at America’s premier dog competition, would appear for Banana Joe one night only Wednesday in “The Mystery of Edwin Drood.” The dog will replace Macaco, the 5-year old Maltese-Yorkie mix that is the real-life pet of actress Stephanie J. Block.

Michelle Obama on Wednesday gushed over the Oscarnominated film “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” calling it one of the “most powerful and most important” movies in a long time in a ringing endorsement delivered less than two weeks before this month’s Academy Awards ceremony. The first lady commented during a Black History Month workshop at the White House for about 80 middle- and high-school students from the District of Columbia and New Orleans. The movie was set in Louisiana. Students saw the film, then got to question director Benh Zeitlin and actors Dwight Henry and 9-year-old Quvenzhane Wallis. Wallis stars in the mythical tale of a 6-year-old girl named Hushpuppy struggling to survive in the southern Delta with her ailing father as a storm approaches.

New covers for Potter books The Harry Potter books are getting a makeover. Scholastic Inc. announced Wednesday new covers have been commissioned for U.S. trade paperback editions of J.K. Rowling’s blockbuster series. The first new cover, for “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” replaces Mary GrandPre’s iconic sandy-colored design of Harry in flight with a purplish-blue street setting by graphic novelist Kazu Kibuishi. The GrandPre illustrations will still be used for hardcovers and mass market paperbacks. The new edition of “Sorcerer’s Stone” is scheduled for September, the 15th anniversary of Potter’s debut in the U.S. The British editions long had different designs than the U.S.

TV personality Hugh Downs (“20/20”) is 92. Actress Florence Henderson is 79. Country singer Razzy Bailey is 74. Jazz saxophonist Maceo Parker is 70. TV personality Pat O’Brien (“The Insider,” “Access Hollywood”) is 65. Magician Teller of Penn and Teller is 65. Actor Ken Wahl (“Wiseguy”) is 56. Actress Meg Tilly is 53. Singer

She must have seen this coming. Theresa Caputo, star of the TLC reality show “Long Island Medium,” has a book deal. The memoir to be published by Atria Books, a Simon & Schuster imprint, will be called “There’s More To Life Than This: Healing Messages, Remarkable Stories, and Insight About the Other Side.” Atria says the book will give readers insight into Caputo’s life and better understanding of her “remarkable gift” while teaching them about messages she receives from the beyond. Caputo, a mother of two from Hicksville, N.Y., says she started seeing spirits at age 4.

Dwayne Wiggins of Tony! Toni! Tone! is 52. Actor Enrico Colantoni (“Just Shoot Me”) is 50. Actor Valente Rodriguez (“George Lopez”) is 49. Bassist Ricky Wolking of The Nixons is 47.

Wicked Chocolates in Algonquin offers chocolate hearts filled with Baileys Irish Cream with a dash of sea salt and dark chocolate filled with cayenne zen cream.

Wicked Valentine Algonquin chocolatier ‘pushing the boundaries’ By CHELSEA McDOUGAL cmcdougall@shawmedia.com ALGONQUIN – Wicked Chocolates owner Brian Green came across chocolate as a happy accident and his new retail space is four years in the making. Green met his wife and co-owner Cyndi four years ago. On their first Christmas together, Cyndi, a hobbyist chocolate maker, was cooking peanut butter cups when a brave Brian offered her suggestions on how she could improve upon her treats. “I said, ‘they’re good, but’ ...” Brian said, trailing off and smiling at his wife. “I was still in love then,” Cyndi said, laughing. A seasoned pastry chef, Brian always has been fascinated by chocolate. “It was something I always wanted to play with,” he said. So he began research. At the time, he worked at a bakery in Park Ridge and as he improved his chocolatemaking, he began selling his creations from the bakery’s front counter. Once he had the peanut butter cups down, the self-taught chocolatier started experimenting with fillings. In the end, his chocolates are a far cry from the pieces one might expect at a traditional chocolate shop. Sure, there are the vanillafilled cremes and raspberry truffles, the chocolate-covered strawberries or butterscotch treats one might find elsewhere, but Brian just couldn’t settle on ordinary.

del-infused chocolate top sellers, and even the Baileys Irish Cream-filled chocolates topped with sea salt, a fan favorite. He started experimenting with other unusual fillings and flavors, such as the

blueberry crumb cake, a dark chocolate with cayenne pepper, one called “vanilla shake and fries,” or for Valentine’s Day – champagne rose petal. “These fillings cross the line with some chocolatiers,” he said. “I”m pushing the boundaries with my fillings.” Once the chocolates started taking off, the Carpentersville couple started looking for a storefront, and landed a 1,400-square-foot space off Route 62 in Algonquin next to Mandile’s Italian Restaurant. But the Greens said they couldn’t make the business work on chocolates alone.

Valentine’s survey: Fewer to spend, knees to bend NORTHWEST HERALD Americans are earmarking an average of $239 per person this year to spend on Valentine’s Day gifts, entertainment, dining out and weekend getaways, up from $196 last year, according to an American Express survey. While total spending is expected to increase, the number of people spending any money for Valentine’s Day is down to 69 percent, compared to 76 percent last year. While fewer wallets will open, more knees will bend: 6 million are planning to make or expecting to receive a proposal on Feb. 14, up from 4 million in 2012. “Merchants should see moderate growth in Valentine’s Day spending,” said David Rabkin, a senior vice president for American Express. “More couples say they plan to spend, and spend more to make the day special. Topping the list are gifts, dinners out and going to the movies.” Men plan to spend more than women on Valentine’s Day, yet women may not be as enamored with Cupid’s holiday as one would think. More than

The Northwest Herald announced Wednesday that Jason Schaumburg has been named as editor, effective March 4. Schaumburg, a former sports editor and managing editor with the Northwest Herald, will replace Dan McCaleb, who is taking on an expanded role with the newspaper’s parent company, Shaw Media. M o s t recently, Schaumburg was executive editor of Pioneer Press, a group of 32 weekly news- Schaumburg papers and websites spread throughout Chicago’s suburbs. Prior to that, he served as editor of the Daily Chronicle in DeKalb from 2009 until March 2012. Schaumburg served as Northwest Herald’s assistant managing editor and managing editor from 2004 to 2009, and as sports editor and assistant sports editor before that. “Jason is an outstanding journalist who brings a wide range of skills and experience back to our newspaper and digital products,” McCaleb said. “He knows McHenry County. He’s worked with many of our journalists before. I’m excited to have him back.” In January, McCaleb was named group editor for Shaw Media’s suburban group of newspapers and websites. They include the Northwest Herald, Daily Chronicle, the St. Charles-based Kane County Chronicle, Suburban Life Media and others. McCaleb said he will continue to be active in the Northwest Herald’s editorial operations, including serving on the newspaper’s Editorial Board and writing a weekly column.

30 percent of women in relationships think Valentine’s Day is overrated, while another 34 percent say it’s a fun holiday, but not a major occasion. Still, 35 percent of women feel it’s an important day to celebrate their relationship with their significant other. Beyond Valentine’s Day, the majority of couples (79 percent) say they’ll invest in their relationship this year, including surprising each other with gifts (46 percent), scheduling regular date nights (37 percent) and planning at least one romantic getaway (29 percent). For some, relationship statuses are sure to change from single to engaged in 2013. Fourteen million Americans are expecting or planning a proposal some time this year (on par with 2012); 6 million are planning to pop or answer the question on Valentine’s Day. A romantic vacation or weekend getaway continues to be the most popular proposal setting (26 percent), followed by dinner at a restaurant (20 percent). However, more couples are keeping it simple, planning a special at-home meal (15 percent vs. 8 percent in 2012).

On average, Americans feel $2,410 is an appropriate amount to spend on an engagement ring, on par with last year. However, that average jumps to $5,658 among affluents, up almost $2,000 from 2012. Despite buzz around million-dollar celebrity diamond rings, only 6 percent of American couples feel it’s appropriate to spend more than $10,000 on a rock this year. Couples are initiating financial conversations earlier in their relationships. Among unmarried couples, more say they are initiating the money talk within six months of meeting (44 percent vs. 29 percent in 2012). Couples also are discussing money more frequently, 59 percent say at least once a week, up from 56 percent in 2012. The American Express Spending & Saving Tracker research was completed online among a random sample of 1,500 adults, including the general U.S. population, and an affluent demographic, defined by a minimum annual household income of $100,000. Interviewing was conducted by Echo Research between Jan. 29 and Feb. 2.

Candy shop fundraiser nets $2,800 Susanne and Katie Anderson, who are fourth generation candy makers from Anderson’s Candy Shop headquartered in Richmond, raised $2,800 for Family Health Partnership Clinic by selling chocolate over the holiday season. “The Give Back Box” fundraiser was an idea they came up with to honor their mother and support the clinic and its mission. Their mother died of breast cancer in 2011 when she let her health condition worsen because she had no health insurance and did not realize she could have received help from Family Health Partnership Clinic. The Anderson sisters teamed up with Family Health Partnership Clinic for the fundraiser and sold more than 750 boxes during the holiday season. “This was an incredible project,” Katie said. “Our whole staff worked long hours to fill the orders for those who wanted to support this great cause.” . Susanne and Katie felt a strong need to let others know that the clinic, which provides primary health care to those with no health insurance, is there for people in McHenry County,

An offer is a good thing, even if it’s low So you’ve received an offer on your home. That’s good news, right? Well, not always, some sellers might think. It seems that in this market, where buyers perceive they have the upper hand, low-ball offers are quite common. In some situations it might be from an investor who has never even seen the home but decided to throw an offer at it anyway. Other times it might be a first-time home buyer who really is just hoping to get a good deal. Either way, sellers need to realize not all offers are alike and to treat them accordingly. The first step is always to set aside an emotion. While the seller certainly has emotions tied to his/ her home, the buyer doesn’t. Even first-time home buyers typically haven’t attached themselves to the home yet. The good news is that there is an offer. An experienced listing agent will be able to counsel the seller as to their response options. Understand that any buyer is concerned with overpaying, so

they’re going to make an offer less than the asking price. It’s not a reflection on the seller or the home at all. The best strategy in almost all cases is to counteroffer. The buyer wants to know the seller is willing to compromise some. One strategy is for each party to slowly inch their way to a center point; that is, each side gives a thousand dollars or two to compromise until a final dollar amount is reached. More recently, though, one side will counter back with their final offer, a “take it or leave” amount. This is usually a response to a ridiculously low offer. It’s not worth the seller’s time or the agent’s to bother with it much more than that. Be aware, however, that many homes have gone under contract in this fashion. The buyer might come all the way up to the seller’s bottom line. Another thing to consider is that price isn’t the only term offered in the contract. The contingencies are often almost equally important as the actually agreed upon price. Terms such as mort-

REAL ESTATE Jim Haisler gage financing, attorney approval, home inspection approval, home sale approval, earnest money and even closing dates are all worthy of consideration and may mean more to the buyer than someone might think. So when a low-ball offer comes in, check out the rest of the terms. Perhaps the buyer is willing to waive everything else. A cash deal that closes in two weeks with no home inspection approval may be worth thousands of dollars difference in price. A quick closing can save the seller and one or two mortgage payments. How much is that worth to a seller who has already moved out? Should a low offer be presented, consider asking your agent to ask the buyer why he feels the price is justified. Find out what they’re thinking. Maybe they’re basing it

on bad information, or possibly the market has changed and the seller’s home is now worth less than it was when it was listed nine months ago. Asking such questions can sometimes clarify the situation. Occasionally, the buyer’s real estate agent will send over copies of comparable properties to support their offer. The listing agent will need to verify these are good “comps” and perhaps have a discussion with the other agent about what the best “comps” really are. Asking more questions about the buyer could be important, too. See if he’s willing to offer information about himself that might be helpful to the seller. Did the buyer live in the neighborhood growing up and now wants back in but can’t quite afford full price? Perhaps the buyer is a military veteran who is on a fixed income. These factors might help a seller to consider a slightly lower offer than was previously considered. Often, when the buyer’s agent and the listing agent talk, they are able to, with their client’s permission, reduce the price gap. Perhaps

the seller comes down a bit and the buyer comes up a bit. This may be done verbally between the parties but be aware that even counteroffers should be reduced to writing and signed by the parties to protect everyone involved. Finally, a seller needs to consider how the property is perceived. Is he knowingly or not asking for low-ball offers? Does the listing say “bring all offers,” “motivated seller,” or “short sale?” These are all tips of desperation and may actually be initiating low offers. An offer is a good thing, even if it is lower than hoped for. Talk with the listing agent to get recommendations as to how to proceed and know that it usually isn’t personal.

SBA loan programs a pleasant surprise There are not too many government programs that actually impress me. Two programs offered by the Small Business Administration are the exception. Often described as vastly underutilized, the SBA was established in 1953 as an independent agency of the federal government. Its purpose was a noble one – to help Americans start, build and grow businesses. During the economic downturn the past few years, the SBA programs have been a godsend to the commercial real estate business, providing a financing source when conventional lenders all but disappeared from the scene. Two different programs make up the SBA’s effort to assist small businesses. The most popular program, called the 7(a), works by providing guarantees to private sector lenders who secure financing for small businesses. What’s different about this SBA form of financing is that the SBA is not actually lending money directly. It is structured to make it less risky for a local lender to provide you with the financing you need. If the borrower fails to repay their obligation and a payment default occurs, the SBA will reimburse the lender for up to 75 percent of the loss. What

COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE Joe Billitteri lender wouldn’t make a sensible loan with a guarantee like that? The 7(a) loan funds can be used to: Buy owner-occupied commercial real estate, start a new business, purchase or expand an existing business, buy machinery and equipment, augment working capital, refinance debt and balloon payments, start a franchise, make leasehold improvements, remodel or renovate, and increase inventory. In most cases banks will want three years of tax returns as well as up-to-date financials and most will want 10-20 percent owner’s equity (down payment) in the purchase so that there is “skin in the game” by the borrower. Interest rates were extraordinarily low in 2012 and are expected to continue to be low in 2013. Amortization periods are up to 25 years and loans can be fixed or variable. Loan sizes range up to $5 million. Other parameters exist but this type of loan is one you should definitely explore if you are in the market. The other program known

as the SBA 504 program is a co-lending product between a private sector lender and what is known as a Certified Development Company. There are about 270 CDCs nationwide, each operating in a specific geographic area. The typical 504 project requires only 10 percent equity (down payment) from the borrower which is quite low in modern lending practices. The balance of the loan is split between a private sector lender (50 percent) and the CDC (40 percent). The 504 loans are funded by the sale of bonds which are packaged and sold on Wall Street. So there are actually two loans being made to the borrower with a 504, one from the bank and one from the CDC. The bank gets a 50 percent loan-to-value first lien position on the assets being purchased, thereby cutting its risk in half. The CDC provides the next 40 percent in a second lien position. The 504 has a more limited scope than the 7(a) and is typically used to purchase existing owner-occupied (51 percent or more) commercial/ industrial buildings, but it also can be used for purchase of land and construction of new facilities. Modernizing, converting or renovating existing facilities also qualifies

as does purchase of long-term machinery and equipment. The benefits of the SBA loan programs include low down payment (more people can afford to buy), competitive fixed-rate interest rate options, long-term financing (no three- to five- year balloons), loan fees may be financed, and it’s an assumable loan. We have recommended both of these programs to a number of our clients over the years and the results have been gratifying for all. These programs have wide appeal, flexibility and applicability. Furthermore, the time it takes to process these loans has been streamlined significantly so transactions can go from contract to closing in about 60 days. In addition, we are seeing fixed commercial interest rates as low as 4.5 percent with a 15year fixed rate for qualified buyers. If any of this sounds appealing, let me put you in touch with a lender or CDC and get the process started. It costs nothing to get you prequalified.

Fillings of dark chocolate, strawberry and cayenne zen cream are ready to be placed into chocolates made in the Wicked Chocolates shop kitchen in Algonquin.

• WICKED Continued from page D1 “Just doing chocolate will never make money in today’s society,” he said. “It’s such an occasion thing now. I can’t live for just for Saturday chocolate sales.” Wicked Chocolates has various lunch specials throughout the week, and offers a variety of petite pastries, cookies and savory scones. These treats are small and priced accordingly to encourage customers to try a variety. For example, a small savory scone sells for 60 cents, a cookie 35 cents. But the chocolates still are a big draw. Behind the pastry and chocolate cases, there is a dual kitchen – one for baking, and a second heat-and -humidity-controlled chocolate kitchen. “Chocolate is very temperamental,” Brian explained. From there, Brian creates what he calls small-batch

artisan chocolates. He only cooks seven pounds at a time, and his chocolates have only a six-week shelf life so they’re constantly fresh, he said. Of the many questions new customers have for the business that opened in September, is how they got their name. No, they’re not from the East Coast, and yes, they loved the play of the same name, but that wasn’t their inspiration. Simply put, it’s how they view their products. As the business was emerging and still needed a name, the couple went out to eat and were seated at a table with a paper tablecloth. Over a bottle of red wine and crayons in hand, they were determined to have settled on a moniker before the check was paid. They scribbled ideas on the paper tablecloth. When Brian finally had a name, he covered the words, and asked his wife to take a peek. “It hit me,” Brian said. “We think our chocolates are wicked.”

8IN BRIEF Companies restocked at slower pace in December WASHINGTON – U.S. companies restocked their store shelves and warehouses at a slower pace in December, a sign of caution as sales weakened. Slower restocking was a major drag on the economy in the final three months of last year. Business inventories ticked up 0.1 percent in December from November, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. That was below the 0.2 percent pace the previous month and the smallest increase since last June. Total sales for wholesalers, retailers and manufacturers increased only 0.3 percent, down from a 0.9 percent clip in November. Slower rebuilding of inventories means factories produced less, lowering overall economic output. One silver lining: if sales keep growing, companies may have to restock more quickly in the January-March quarter, boosting growth. A separate report Wednesday showed retail spending ticked up in January.

Apple cuts MacBook Pro price, updates processors CUPERTINO, Calif. – Apple says it has lowered the price of its 13-inch MacBook Pro laptops by $200 and updated its processors. It also launched new models with faster processors and more memory. Apple Inc. said Wednesday that the MacBook Pro with “Retina” display and 128 gigabytes of flash memory will now cost $1,499, down from $1,699. A new model with 256 gigabytes of flash will cost $1,699. The 15-inch model has a faster processor and the same price. Apple unveiled the new MacBook Pro models last fall. It has flash memory instead of the traditional hard drive, which makes it thinner and lighter. Apple reported a surprising decline in Mac sales in the final quarter of 2012. It sold 4.1 million of them, down 22 percent from shipments a year earlier.

Hyatt profit falls, adjusted results beat Wall Street CHICAGO – Hyatt Hotels’ net income declined 69 percent in the fourth quarter, hurt by impairment charges and a smaller income tax benefit. Its adjusted results topped Wall Street’s view, but the stock fell slightly in trading Wednesday. President and CEO Mark Hoplamazian said in a statement that Hyatt Hotels Corp., whose brands include its namesake, Hyatt Regency, Andaz and others, plans to open more than 30 hotels this year. This includes converting four hotels in Paris, Nice and Cannes to Hyatt brands. For the three months ended Dec. 31, the Chicago-based lodging company earned $16 million, or 9 cents per share. That’s down from $52 million, or 31 cents per share, a year ago. Taking out impairment charges and other items, earnings were 20 cents per share. Analysts forecast earnings of 12 cents per share, according to a FactSet survey. Hyatt Hotels had an $11 million income tax benefit in the quarter. A year earlier, the income tax benefit was $28 million. Revenue climbed to $1 billion from $990 million. Wall Street predicted $1.03 billion in revenue. Revenue per available room for owned and leased hotels open at least a year climbed 7.5 percent on solid demand. Revenue per available room, or revpar, is a key gauge of a hotel operator’s performance. Full-year net income was $88 million, or 53 cents per share, down from $113 million, or 67 cents per share, in the prior year. Annual revenue rose 7 percent to $3.95 billion from $3.7 billion.

Thomson Reuters to cut 2,500 jobs after posting $372M profit The Associated Press NEW YORK – News and financial information company Thomson Reuters on Wednesday said it is cutting 2,500 jobs, or about 4 percent of its workforce, this year as it tries to reduce costs and turn around its largest division. CEO Jim Smith told analysts on a conference call Wednesday that the

company is eliminating the positions from its “Financial and Risk” division, which rents out trading terminals to the financial industry. It accounts for just over half of Thomson Reuters’ revenue. “These are not easy decisions, but our cost structure has to meet our customer’s requirements,” Smith said. Thomson Reuters has about 60,000 employees.

On Wednesday, the company said it posted a profit of $372 million for the fourth quarter after a large loss in the same period a year earlier, capping what Smith called “a watershed year” in the company’s turnaround. The New York-based company earned $372 million, or 45 cents per share, in the October to December period. That’s up from a loss of $2.6

billion, or $3.11 per share, in the same period a year ago, when it took a $3 billion charge related to the declining value of its financial services business, which accounts for more than half of its revenue. Excluding one-time items, Thomson Reuters’ adjusted earnings were 60 cents per share in the latest quarter, up from 54 cents per share a year ago.

401(k) plan sponsors should prepare for assault Is your company’s 401(k) a target of the Department of Labor or IRS? The answer could very well be a resounding yes and you may be a target. The DOL and IRS have hired thousands of new agents to review and audit 401(k) plans beginning this year. Part of these new agents’ training is focused on how they will plan their assault on your 401(k). That’s right, your plan! All 401(k) plans are a target, not just the ones that have complaints filed against them. That’s the bad news. But here is the good news: Your plans are in a grace period. While the DOL and IRS are in training, you have an opportunity to fully review your plan to ensure you are compliant. The grace period will end somewhere around the third quarter of 2013. That’s when we expect agents to begin their activity. While many investigations don’t become public, the DOL closed 3,500 civil cases and more than 300 criminal cases during 2011. Given the increased staffing and regulatory/ enforcement activity, the DOL is ob-

viously concerned about fiduciary negligence, disclosure and curbing conflicts. The agency uses multiple sources to determine who they will investigate, including participant complaints, 5500 filings, media coverage on regulatory actions and referrals from SEC and the IRS. Now that service providers have made the required disclosures, sponsors must review and evaluate them to avoid personal liability. Most sponsors do not have the time or expertise to perform this required fiduciary duty moving beyond receipt of the required disclosure; the reasonableness of compensation and fees must be determined. If the compensation is not reasonable, the fees can be renegotiated. Alternatively, the vendor could be replaced. If the sponsor does not follow the aforementioned protocol, it will be in violation of its ERISA duties. Given the importance of the subject matter and the fact that some vendors are providing poor disclosures that cannot be evaluated, it makes it imperative for a plan sponsor to seek an independent fee benchmark-

BEST PRACTICES Terry and Aaron Maryniw ing of its plan. New legislation and enforcement makes it mandatory for plan sponsors to review and implement best plan practice. They need to keep in mind that the plan is for the benefit of the participants. Protecting plan fiduciaries from liability emanating from increased lawsuits and regulatory oversight, including ERISA violations, monetary sanctions and civil liability, highlight the need for skilled advisers, internal controls, a prudent approach to compliance and best practices governance. ERISA compliance requires a deep skill set and in spite of increased enforcement over fiduciary negligence, many plan sponsors and advisers fail to understand the DOL’s jurisdiction or their duties under ERISA. Given recent decisions, future lawsuits from a rejuvenated Tort

Bar will no doubt center on breach of fiduciary duty surrounding: • Imprudent selection and retention of investment options/share classes. • Neglect in monitoring recordkeeping costs. • Failure to negotiate relates and offset revenue sharing. • Permitting excessive fees and expenses. • Misrepresenting the risk of employer securities. • Failure to administer in accordance with plan document. Many advisers consider that the risk associated with administering plans properly is far greater than the risk of being sued. Indeed, operational mistakes can and occur. When penalties, attorney fees, recalculation costs and corrective contributions are considered, the cost of operational compliance for errors that span multiple years can be significant. It would wisely benefit the plan sponsor to independent fee benchmark its plan. Unfortunately, benchmarking a 401(k) plan is not easy. It can be expensive, take

Retail sales rise 0.1 pct. after tax hike By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER AP Economics Writer

Deere net income jumps 22 percent The Associated Press MOLINE – Farm and construction equipment maker Deere & Co. said Wednesday that its first-quarter net income leaped 22 percent on growing sales of farm machinery at higher prices. The Moline, Ill., company’s earnings soundly beat Wall Street expectations. In the quarter ending Jan. 31, Deere said it earned $649.7 million, or $1.65 per share, compared with $532.9 million, or $1.30 per share, a year earlier. Revenue rose almost 10 percent to $7.42 billion. Analysts surveyed by FactSet expected earnings of $1.39 per share on revenue of $6.73 billion. Deere is executing its marketing plans, expanding its global presence and keeping a tight grip on costs, Chairman and CEO Samuel Allen said in a statement. The company predicted that sales would rise about 4 percent in the second quarter and 6 percent for the full year. It expects 2013 net income of about $3.3 billion, slightly more than its earlier forecasts and the predictions of analysts. But Allen cautioned that although Deere sees strong future results on growing need for food, shelter and infrastructure, “the near-term outlook is being tempered by uncertainties over fiscal, economic and trade issues that are undermining business confidence and restraining growth.” After rising initially as high as $98.71 in premarket dealings, Deere shares turned lower and were down 7 cents

to $93.90 in trading about 15 minutes before Wednesday’s opening bell. Deere is the world’s largest maker of agricultural equipment, like the bright green tractors and combines that roll on farm fields during planting and harvest seasons. Its fortunes rise and fall with those of farmers. The company said farm business should be good this year, predicting that agriculture and turf equipment sales would rise by about 6 percent, with a 5 percent increase over last year’s strong numbers in the U.S. and Canada. “Relatively high commodity prices and strong farm incomes are expected to continue supporting a favorable level of demand for farm machinery during the year,” the company’s statement said. It also predicted that European agricultural and turf sales would fall 5 percent due to economic weakness and a poor harvest last year in the United Kingdom. But South American agricultural sales are expected to rise 10 percent to 15 percent on strong conditions in Brazil. Asian sales are projected to be only slightly higher than last year. In addition to farm equipment, Deere makes construction and forestry equipment such as backhoes, excavators, riding mowers and leaf blowers, making the company sensitive to movements in the global economy. But Deere predicted that worldwide construction and forestry equipment sales would rise 3 percent this year on higher international sales of construction equipment.

Taco Bell to launch Cool Ranch tacos The Associated Press NEW YORK – Taco Bell fans can finally mark their calendars: Doritos Locos Tacos in Cool Ranch flavor will be launched March 7. The chain is rolling out the new variety a year after the Doritos Locos Tacos were launched in a Nacho Cheese flavor. Taco Bell says it already sold more than 350 million of finger-staining tacos,

making them the biggest ever product launch. CEO Greg Creed has told the Associated Press that Doritos Locos Tacos now account for about a quarter of all taco sales. Creed says he plans to keep introducing new Doritos flavors as well. Next up is a “Flamas” flavor, a Doritos variety sold in select regions of the country with higher Hispanic populations.

WASHINGTON – Americans barely spent more last month at retail businesses and restaurants after higher taxes cut their paychecks. The small increase suggests consumer spending may be weak in the January-March quarter, which could hold back economic growth. Retail sales ticked up 0.1 percent in January from December, the Commerce Department said Wednesday. That follows a 0.5 percent increase in December and is the smallest in three months. Sales fell at auto dealerships, clothing stores and furniture stores. They rose at home-improvement stores, gas stations and online retailers. So-called core retail sales, which exclude autos, building materials, and gas stations, ticked up 0.2 percent. Economists pay close attention to core sales because they strip out the most volatile categories.

The retail sales report is the government’s first look at consumer spending, which drives 70 percent of economic activity. Nearly all working Americans are taking home less pay this year. Congress and the White House allowed a temporary 2 percentage point cut in Social Security taxes to expire last month. That means a person earning $50,000 a year will have about $1,000 less to spend in 2013. A household with two high-paid workers will have up to $4,500 less. Economists were mildly encouraged that spending rose at all after the tax increases took effect. Many expect that spending may pick up later this year as hiring improves. “No surprise that consumer spending eased a bit in the New Year,” Jennifer Lee, an economist at BMO Capital Markets, said in a note to clients. “Look for spending to pick up as the year progresses, supported by stronger job growth.” Top-earning households are also

paying higher income taxes this year. President Barack Obama and lawmakers agreed to prevent income taxes from rising on most Americans. But their deal to avoid the fiscal cliff allowed income taxes to rise on individuals earning $400,000 a year and couples earning $450,000 a year. The Social Security tax increase was a key reason the Conference Board’s index of consumer confidence plummeted last month to its lowest level in 14 months. That survey was taken early in the month, when most Americans were discovering their smaller paychecks. But a separate survey taken later in the month by the University of Michigan suggested consumers weren’t quite as dismayed, possibly after absorbing the impact of the tax increase. Americans may be feeling better about the economy because of improvement in the job market. Employers added an average of 200,000 jobs a month in the final three months of last year.

Business booms where battleships ruled By JOANN LOVIGLIO The Associated Press PHILADELPHIA – The city’s Navy Yard, a massive military powerhouse where battleships were born until the Cold War put it on ice, is celebrating a milestone that seemed a stretch when the Navy shipped out 17 years ago. Once the nation’s first shipyard — its origins date to 1776 — the sprawling property is now home to 130 companies and 10,000 employees in industries as varied as fashion, pharmaceuticals, colleges and cupcakes. “There was a lot of uncertainty early on,” said John Grady, president of the Philadelphia Industrial Development Corp. “People weren’t sure what we were going to do to replace this engine of activity that was there.” Last week, The Navy Yard marked its 10,000-employee milestone and unveiled an update to its 2004 master plan that is forecasting 1,000 apartments, more parks and open space, more new construction and continued adaptive reuse of Navy-era industrial buildings. About $130 million in publicly funded infrastructure improvements at The Navy Yard has spurred more than $700 million in private investment. About $30 million in city wage taxes and $47 million in state income and sales taxes were generated last year. Companies calling The Navy Yard home include Ur-

ban Outfitters and Tasty Baking Co., while several universities offer classes and other schools collaborate with private companies on green energy research. About one-third of the 130 businesses get some form of tax break but are in exchange required to make a certain amount of capital investments or increase employment. The 2013 master plan update estimates that more than 30,000 people will work at The Navy Yard at its peak, possibly in 15 to 20 years, with private investments of $3 billion. Robert A.M. Stern Architects, creators of the original and revised strategic plans, envision new and rehabbed commercial, industrial and residential buildings eventually extending to the waterfront with a complement of surrounding parks and canals. “Any good master plan has to change as circumstances change,” Stern said, “and in this case, it’s wonderful to work with a plan that is in many ways a victim of its own success.” The end of the Cold War spelled the end of the shipyard, and by 1996 the Navy had packed its bags. Roughly 7,000 civilian jobs were lost. After the Navy transferred ownership of about 1,100 acres to the Philadelphia Industrial Development Corp., the public-private partnership began floating ideas for the site’s future. Four years later, a roadmap was unveiled to guide growth

of what essentially is a city within a city at the southern end of Broad Street. The Philadelphia Naval Shipyard, the property’s military title, was renamed The Navy Yard for its new life as the urban antidote to the cloistered office parks in the suburbs. “We started at a time when the suburban business park was kind of the model,” Grady said, “but of course what we’ve seen is a shift back to cities.” Like a college campus, the layout is conducive to workers venturing out of their offices. Shared park-like green spaces are hallmarks of the site, as are commissaries and cafeterias that are open to everyone, not just employees of the building where they’re located. The model has proven particularly appealing to businesses from outside the city: Nearly two-thirds of the 130 businesses at The Navy Yard are new to Philadelphia, Mayor Michael Nutter said. “The momentum ... only has accelerated throughout the recent recession,” he said. The area has added 60 companies and 2,500 employees since 2008. Adding to the urban environment in the next several years will be 1,000 apartment units in a cluster of existing and new buildings, along with grocery shopping and other neighborhood necessities. A sleek 170-room hotel is under construction and development is expanding up to the

Vehicles move thought the main gate at the Navy Yard in Philadelphia. The city’s Navy Yard is celebrating a milestone that skeptics might not have believed 15 years ago. Nearly all naval operations are long gone from the sprawling former shipyard but 10,000 people now work there in an eclectic mix of businesses from fashion to pharmacies. That number is expected to triple in 20 years. Delaware River. A desired piece of the puzzle that may be toughest to achieve, however, is extending a subway line to the Navy Yard. Those who don’t drive to work must catch a city bus or a shuttle from downtown for the five-mile trip. Grady estimated it could cost $350 million to extend the subway and add a couple of station stops inside the yard. It’s not on the immediate horizon but it is a goal, he said. The Navy Yard hasn’t abandoned its industrial

roots. Aker Philadelphia Shipyard makes commercial tanker ships, several other companies manufacture shipbuilding-related products and the Navy has research and engineering facilities on site as well as some mothballed ships. The newest tenant is pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline. About 1,300 employees will be relocating from a downtown office tower to an $80 million, 208,000-squarefoot building by the end of this month.

The move allowed the company to custom-make an energy-efficient, eco-friendly building with modern collaborative workspaces and an open floor plan, and the location is much closer to the airport, said Glaxo project manager Ray Milora. “Everyone really is excited to be down here,” he said. “We were in a very traditional, standard, beige, American office space. ... It’s amazing how everything changes by taking down walls and being able to see people.”

Glass-blowing business heats up By KAYLEIGH ZYSKOWSKI Journal Gazette and Times-Courier

Glass artist Randy Turner keeps a piece spinning as he demonstrates his art during a presentation at the Larkfield Glass studio near Paris.

PARIS, Ill. – Heat poured from a glowing orange compartment as Randy Turner twirled a long metal pole with a small knob of liquid glass on the end. More than a dozen Head Start students stood inside the warmed pole barn in rural Edgar County Friday afternoon and watched Turner carefully craft the knob into a small glass pumpkin. The children gasped as Randy blew air into the pole making the glass bulb gently expand on the opposite end. He then stepped onto a bucket to lower the orange globe into a mold which created the pumpkin-like ridges and gently squashed the flexible creation onto the floor producing a perfect stout shape. With the help of his wife Joy — who explained each step to the children, Randy placed a stem on the top of the fall staple. The man set the piece inside a chest that will gradually cool the art so it doesn’t snap. “This is the best field trip I’ve ever been on,” a mother said from the small group. “It’s like magic.”

Wall Street analysts say Comcast getting great deal on NBCUniversal By PETER SVENSSON AP Technology Writer NEW YORK – Analysts believe General Electric Co. gave Comcast Corp. a great deal on the half of NBCUniversal that the cable company doesn’t already own. Analyst Matthew Harrigan at Wunderlich Securities said GE “mispriced” the $16.7 billion deal. Doug Mitchelson at Deutsche Bank said he had expected that GE would have held out for a better price. He asked Comcast executives on a conference call Wednesday morning if they sweetened the deal somehow. Comcast’s chief financial officer, Michael Angelakis, responded that GE’s board simply liked that the company could sell its stake earlier than expected. Comcast had bought 51 percent of NBCUniversal in 2011 and was going to buy out the rest from GE gradually, finishing in 2018. “I think it’s a very good deal for them as well,” Angelakis said Wednesday. “I think from their standpoint they’re going to receive a lot of cash, which we know they’re going to deploy to other services. And from our

standpoint, I think it was an advantage to accelerate that, and I think we’ve received a very fair price.” “We think this is an attractive exit price,” GE’s Chief Financial Officer, Keith Sherin, said on a separate call. Comcast CEO Brian Roberts told The Associated Press after the deal was announced Tuesday that the company decided it made sense to buy GE’s stake now because the improved performance of the NBC broadcast network and cable-TV programming made it more likely the price would rise in the future. NBCUniversal operates the NBC and Telemundo broadcast networks, local TV stations, cable channels such as USA, SyFy and CNBC, the Universal Pictures movie studios and theme parks in Florida and California. It generates about a third of the revenue for Comcast, whose larger business is producing the pipes for cable TV, Internet and phone services. The deal, expected to be completed by the end of March, values NBCUniversal at $34 billion, not including $5 billion in debt. That’s about 13 percent higher than two years ago, when Comcast’s invest-

ment valued the company at about $30 billion, also excluding debt. By contrast, CBS Corp.’s stock price has more than doubled in those two years and the stock of ABC owner The Walt Disney Co. has risen 41 percent. Thomas Seitz, analyst at Jefferies & Co., said Comcast was getting an “attractive” value for NBCUniversal, saying the price was just a small premium to the valuation and earnings of other big media companies such as Disney and Time Warner Inc. Complete ownership will let Comcast benefit more from the rising price of sports rights and other TV programs. It avoids solely being in the uncomfortable position of passing those costs onto customers. And long-term rights deals between the TV networks and their cable and satellite distributors have ensured the importance of TV, even as Web video is on the rise. Besides buying the rest of NBCUniversal, Comcast agreed to pay GE another $1.4 billion for other assets that include one of New York’s bestknown landmarks, NBC’s headquarters at 30 Rockefeller Plaza.

Randy and Joy dreamed of starting their own glass blowing business since taking their first class during graduate school at Oklahoma State University in 1987. Finally in 2008, after years of planning, dreaming and saving the couple sold their first piece from their shop, Larkfield Glass. Colorful creations sit on shelves throughout the shop. Randy remembers creating most and shares stories about the process. The man with a full, graying beard laughs about his mistakes, and has learned to make the most of his bloopers. He’s created a series of twisted vases he accidently made after replacing the coils in the “glory hole” – the element used to heat the glass while he’s shaping the pieces. “I swung the vase around, and the new coils must have really worked because it became too long and very thin,” he said, “so I pulled the end and wrapped it around itself, and you know what — people loved it. “You can’t really put flowers in it, but it’s a piece of art that doesn’t take up so much space. Now I do it on purpose.” When a beautiful orange and white

plate shattered, Randy used the pieces inside a clear paper weight that almost resembles gold fish in a bowl. “You can’t fight the glass,” he said. “I think that’s one of the things that has really made me improve – when I realized you can’t fight it.” Randy says he’s improving his skills every day, and the couple plans to make the business their full-time gig, but for now they use their weekends to fill their inventory. “At first I thought we would have one or two shapes we would get really good at and make several different colors of that same shape. But it’s taken him a while to find that one shape he is really good at, it’s taken a really long time,” Joy joked. Joy has accepted Randy’s creativity. He’s experimented with dozens of wonky shapes — some they call failures while others are deemed surprises, and he says he still hasn’t used every color he bought in his first 2008 purchase. Sometimes their best sellers come from requests from customers including “tornadofilled” paperweights, orange, purple and green vases and large globes with brilliant colors.

Builder sees volatility in housing market Jerry Kuyper BARRINGTON HILLS - Late last year Roy Bertacchi checked out a house for sale in his Barrington Hills neighborhood. It was originally put on the market in early 2012 with an asking price of $1.8 million. When he got interested in the 10,000square-foot house on six acres of landscaped land, it was later in the year and the asking price was $875,000. Bertacchi, who is a custom home builder and also has a license to sell real estate in Illinois, got in touch with an investor. “I told him it was worth an offer.

This was a multi-million dollar piece of property that was being sold at a severely reduced price.” His investor was interested. “Naturally, my investor low-balled the $875,000 price and said he was willing to pay $600,000 for it. The offer was forwarded to the listing agent for the seller. The seller said he would settle for $800,000. I called my investor back and told him to grab it and he agreed with me.” On behalf of his investor, Bertacchi began the process to buy the Barrington Hills estate for $800,000. A curious twist developed. The listing agent called Bertacchi to make sure his investor client really was serious. “I said he was very serious and I told the sales agent to begin the paperwork.”

The listing agent then informed Bertacchi that another buyer was now interested in buying the property. “That happens all the time,” Bertacchi said. “It’s a move to force you to increase the price you are willing to pay.” Bertacchi’s client held firm at $800,000. “Well, the listing agent did have a buyer and the property was sold and I presume it was sold at the last asking price of $875,000.” Bertacchi, who is familiar with the upper-end category of housing, said the price for house and property was an incredible deal for the buyer. After all, he is a builder of custom housing and has been building them for 25 years.

Roy Bertacchi of Barrington Hills designed a fireplace for a custom house remodel in Hampshire.

• BUILDER Continued from page F1 “You could not build a house like that for $875,000 today or yesterday or even in the late 1980s when it was built. And that is just the house. I am not taking into account the six acres and the $250,000 worth of extensive landscaping, which includes a huge deck, a big pond and a boat. When new, the package was probably worth $2 million or $2.5 million, perhaps even $3 million or $3.5 million.” He elaborated on its worth. “The house is gorgeous inside and out. The square footage approaches 10,000 square feet. The basement went on forever. It has all the bells and whistles. Subzero appliances, ornate trim work, lots of marble, all that you would expect in a house of that quality.” The sale was neither through a foreclosure or a short sale, but simply for what the market would bear. “The owner was the president of a bank which got sold. Then his wife passed away about a year ago and he simply donated the property to Fidelity Charities,” Bertacchi said. It is houses like the banker’s which are depressing the custom new housing market, Bertacchi claimed. There are too many of them for sale. And, even if an expensive property is sold, the buyer faces an immediate dilemma. It is the annual property tax. “The tax bite can be killing. Sure, you can buy a house that is worth two or three million dollars for $500,000 or a little more, but the yearly tax bill can be $50,000.

How would you like to buy a house for $500,000 and then be told your taxes were $50,000? Or even $25,000?” It takes time to appeal the property tax hit with local assessors and government review boards. Other reasons emerge, too. “A big problem is that banks do not want to give out any money. The buyer has to have super, super good credit for the bank or lending institution to make a loan.” Although the market is slow it is improving. “For the last three or four years, nothing was moving but now it is. I think 12 to 14 houses were sold here in Barrington Hills in recent months. There are a lot of good deals out there. These upscale houses are not gone, but give it another three years or so and they could be.” When the supply gets slim, Bertacchi will become more active in building custom houses. As it is, the last one he built was more than a year ago. Meanwhile he stays busy on smaller projects. “I just finished a whole house remodel in South Barrington. It was built in the 1980s and had a funny layout. We got rid of the funny layout, which made a world of difference as far as space was concerned. One improvement led to another and it ended up as six months worth of work,” he said. “I have another project going on in Algonquin. A house had a leak in the roof and water ended up decaying two big laminated beams. The whole house was in danger of collapsing. We have gone in there to correct the situation,” he added. “These little jobs keep me busy so

naturally I like them. I am bidding on another five and a half projects and if they come through, I could really be busy. It’s interesting with never a dull moment. You have to like what you are doing otherwise you won’t be busy.” Born in Chicago in 1949, Bertacchi left his hometown for the College of Design, Art, Architecture and Planning on the University of Cincinnati campus. He received a degree in industrial design in 1973. He returned to Chicago with his wife in 1988 and began working for his uncle, Rino Bertacchi of Rino Builders. He left his uncle to start his own business in 1995 and, by that time, he had picked up his real estate broker’s license in 1993. He bought an Algonquin downtown coach house at 115 Washington St. for his business in 1999. His home is nearby in Barrington Hills. Most of his business comes by word of mouth (former clients) as well as by referrals (architects).

Besides the relatively recent 3,500square-foot custom house in Hampshire, Bertacchi designed and built several notable custom houses in the Bull Valley area of McHenry County. A 4,000-square-foot house with unfinished basement and three-car garage was built on five acres in the Bull Ridge subdivision, which is bordered by Route 120 to the north and Ridge Road to the east. “The property backed up to a hunt club that became a nature con-

servancy and now the owner and his family have an absolutely gorgeous view, especially with the sunsets,” Bertacchi said. “The property was interesting as the land was steep and went straight down from the street. I knew we would have to import a lot of dirt for fill and we were looking at $9,000 worth of pea gravel to bring the garage up to grade,” Bertacchi said. While he, the cement contractor and an excavator were staring at the project facing them, the problem was solved. “The concrete guy said we could go ahead and use spancrete, an engineered concrete floor, that would cost $8,000. If you used those concrete slabs as building materials, all of a sudden you have a 1,500-square-foot room that’s a bomb shelter under the house. Actually, that ‘bomb shelter’ is a very useable bonus room and could be used for a future home theater but, right now, the owner is using that unfinished bonus room under the three-car garage for storage. That idea from the concrete guy was a no-brainer.” The custom home has four bedrooms with a first-floor master, fireplaces and unique features galore, Bertacchi said. A custom 4,800-square-foot model at the Sanctuary of Bull Valley for the 2005 Parade of Homes almost cost him his future as a custom builder. The 200-acre Sanctuary was a new subdivision in Woodstock designed for an eventual 105 custom homes on three-quarter to three-acre lots. Bertacchi’s model, The Giulietta, was one of 10 entered in the annual new-home show sponsored by the Home Builders Association of Greater Chicago. Like the other nine

in the show, Bertacchi’s model was priced from $800,000 to more than $1 million. According to Bertacchi, more than 8,000 people visited the show and walked through his brick and stone two-story home which included a 989-square foot garage with three arched custom cedar doors. “I got a lot of compliments, people telling me this is the best this and the best that. They complimented me on the quality and design. They said The Giulietta was the best they had seen for this and that reason, and all the compliments were good to hear, but that did me little good. I had a big (financial) investment in that house. A lot of people were talking but nobody was buying. I wanted a buyer,” he said. “It took me three-and-a-half years to sell that home.” But it sold and the owner and family still live there and even have given Bertacchi a “key” to the house. “The people in the Sanctuary house let me go in any time. I have the code. I use the house to show potential clients the type of work I do. This one day I was there with some clients to show them my work and we went to the front door and knocked. The wife was home and opened the door and as soon as she saw me she says ‘ROYYYYY’ and grabs me and hugs me. The people I was with couldn’t believe it. Not everybody responds to a builder like that. It shows a lot of trust and that I stand behind my work. Yes, I did do some remodeling for the people who were with me that day. “I love my work and especially the people who enter my life, either through remodeling or building a new house for them.”

FOOD & DRINK Love is always sweeter when expressed with chocolate! Especially on Valentine’s Day. The more ooey-gooey deeply chocolaty, the better. Still, there’s no sense overdoing it.

You voted. We tallied. Here are your picks for 5 places in McHenry County to get a great breakfast

M Little Chef

1332 N. Riverside Drive, McHenry 815-385-9752 Average breakfast price: $5.50

MORNING Owner of Little Chef in McHenry, Terry Fair, took over the 43-year-old business from her mom, Sherry, about four years ago.

PEOPLE Story by JAMI KUNZER – jkunzer@shawmedia.com • Photos by SARAH NADER – snader@shawmedia.com

“Best biscuits and gravy in the world!” praised a reader about Little Chef. It hasn’t changed much since Shirley Fair first took it over 47 years ago. Now retired, her daughter, Terry, has owned Little Chef for the past four years. She and her five younger brothers practically grew up in the restaurant. Terry was 11 years old, her brothers were 10, 8, 4 and soon-to-be-born when Shirley bought the restaurant. “I can’t imagine it not being in the family,” Terry said. She’s redone the bathrooms, the floor a bit and revamped the bar stools. “Other than that, it looks the same, honest to God,” she said. “We have a bunch of old pictures that have been here forever.” Terry did recently add the technology for customers to pay with debit and credit cards, but it was a tough decision. “I was the last of the Mohicans to go with that,” Terry said. Small and proud of it, the Little Chef suits its size. Regulars enjoy dining at the counter. “If you want to come by yourself, it’s comfortable,” Terry said. “People end up meeting each other at the counter.” Along with the biscuits and gravy, Little Chef is known for its ham off the bone and eggs and Eggs Benedict. And the homemade soups at lunch are popular. Patrons can stop by boat, with the restaurant backing up to a peer on the Fox River. As one reader put it, “I give Little Chef in Mchenry ‘5 biscuits.’ ”

Brunch Cafe

2

414 S. Route 31, McHenry (locations also in Fox River Grove and Roselle) www.brunchcafe.com, 815-344-4055 Average breakfast price: $7.99 to $8.99

Meals aren’t typical here, boast fans of the Brunch Cafe. That’s exactly what the restaurant is going for when it

comes to serving its customers. “I think what they go for is ... our uniqueness,” Manager Patrick Ofarrell said. “We offer daily specials you can’t get anywhere else.” Some regulars, including a group of teachers who come in about twice a month, have meals waiting for them, he said. Customers regularly check the restaurant’s website for the surprise specials that aren’t on the menu. “We’re always trying to offer something new and fresh,” he said. “They really like that. There’s definitely a good variety.” In McHenry for about two and a half years, the restaurant also delivers to area businesses. “We really key in on making sure the guests are comfortable, that the food comes out fast and fresh,” Ofarrell said. “I think people are a little surprised as to how quickly breakfast can come.”

Cafe Olympic 90 N. Williams St., Crystal Lake 815-344-4055 Average breakfast price: $7 to $8

3

Cafe Olympic has pleased its regulars for the past 15 years in historic downtown Crystal Lake. The building was first turned into an eatery more than 100 years ago in 1912. “It’s probably the oldest place around,” owner Chris Angelos said. Homemade soups, sausage gravy, omelets. “Everything is homemade,” he emphasizes. That’s the way patrons like it. “Best food, service and atmosphere,” wrote one reader.

Windhill Pancake Parlor

4

3307 W. Elm St., McHenry www.windhillpancakeparlor.com, 815-385-1172 Average breakfast price: $8

Since 1976, Windhill Pancake Parlor has pretty much been owner Jennifer Guasta’s home. “I want people to be happy in my home, and come to my home and enjoy it,” she said. At Windhill, they decorate like crazy on holidays, putting in 133 hours each for Halloween and Christmas.

More than 200 plates, cups and saucers cover the walls. And the decor, including the famous train that brings meals to those sitting at the counter, is unforgettable. “It’s like you’re sitting in your grandmother’s kitchen,” Guasta said. Windhill has 12 types of pancakes on a menu that is seven pages long offering American, Italian and Spanish food. “Hands down the best and a good time!” wrote a reader.

Andy’s Restaurant

5

468 W. Virginia St., Crystal Lake 815-459-1661 Average breakfast price:: $5.45 to $6.95 $6.95

A reader described it best: “Andy’s, no doubt about it. A place where everyone knows your name. Andy’s in Crystal Lake has always had the best breakfast, hands down.” Breakfast is served all day at Andy’s, which celebrates its 32nd year as a family-owned and operated favorite. Ham off the bone, crepes, hashbrowns, waffles, skillets, biscuits and gravy, omeletes. “We have all homemade food here, good prices,” Part-Owner Angie Angelos said. “We have the same customers that come every day and have been for many years. It’s just a great place.”

MORE CHOICES Other area restaurants had numerous fans as well, with readers chiming in with praise: Around the Clock, 5011 Northwest Highway, Crystal Lake (www.aroundtheclockrestaurant.com) A staple for more than 35 years, you’ll know it by its marquee sign out front. When asked to name a top spot for breakfast, it’s a no-brainer, according to many. Or as one reader wrote, “Duh, it’s Around the Clock.” “Always has and always will be,” wrote another. Benedicts La Strata, 40 N. Williams St., Crystal Lake (www.benedictseggs.com) “The best. I’m not an oatmeal liker [by] any means, but theirs is the best.” Dino’s Restaurant, 103 S. State St., Marengo “They have the greatest ham on the bone meal, and the hashbrowns are perfect.” Kim and Patty’s Cafe, 731 Ridgeview Drive, McHenry (www.kimandpattyscafe.com) “Absolutely the best...hands down! And you gotta try their cream of chicken and rice soup. It’s to die for!” Reese’s Restaurant, 205 S. Main St., Aglonquin “Always crowded due to homemade cooking, the best in this town.” Busy Bee, 7140 Barnard Mill Road, Wonder Lake Cubby Hole, 10713 N. Main St., Richmond “Nice little cozy hole in the wall can’t be beat, but get there early cuz they get packed.” Burnt Toast Restaurant, 2520 Bunker Hill Drive, Algonquin Marengo Cafe, 110 S. State St., Marengo

cHenry County’s restaurant-goers are adamant when it comes to breakfast. Their hometown spots have the best of everything. Homemade biscuits and gravy. Ham off the bone. Hashbrowns. You name it. There’s a place around here that will make your stomach growl just thinking about breakfast. We put a call out on social media asking for readers to name their favorite breakfast places in McHenry County. We were inundated with hundreds of responses. “Psst. . . Tony’s Cafe in Crystal Lake. Excellent food. Excellent service. Mouth watering right now,” wrote one reader. “The ‘Little Chef’ Is Best, Hands Down!” contradicted another. “Great breakfast, friendly staff, friendly patrons, excellent old photos and a very homey feeling atmosphere. And Most Important FANTASTIC ICED TEA!” So many fans of so many places, it was difficult to narrow down a top five. So we’ll name five, and throw in a few more for those looking to explore.

‘Creatures’ concocts familiar teen angst By CHRISTY LEMIRE The Associated Press The genders have been reversed but the supernatural, star-crossed teen angst remains firmly intact in “Beautiful Creatures,” which clearly aims to pick up where the “Twilight” franchise left off.

“Beautiful Creatures”

HH

STARRING: Alice Englert, Viola Davis, Emma Thompson, Alden Ehrenreich PLOT: Ethan longs to escape his small Southern town. He meets a mysterious new girl, Lena. Together, they uncover dark secrets about their respective families, their history and their town. RATED: PG-13 for violence, scary images and some sexual material RUNNING TIME: 2 hours, 3 minutes with the formula in which they’re forced to work. And, like the “Twilight” movies, the special effects are all-too often distractingly cheesy. The setup breathes some new life into such familiar material, though, as co-stars Alden Ehrenreich and Alice Englert feel like actual awkward teens enjoying the fraught thrills of first love rather than slick, ironic kids who are too

cool. Their first meeting, on a two-lane road during a downpour, has all the trappings of a romance novel but it’s also an early indication of the lively chemistry they share. Once the plot machinations start grinding in the second half, though, “Beautiful Creatures” as a whole grinds to a halt. Spells and scenery-chewing can be a hoot; watching other people sitting around scouring ancient tomes for clues, not so much. Ehrenreich’s character, 17-year-old Ethan Wate, grew up in the suffocating small town of Gatlin, S.C., and is dying to get out. He rebels against the local conservatism by reading all the banned books he can get his hands on, from “Slaughterhouse Five” to “Tropic of Cancer,” and as he enters his junior year in high school, all he can think about is how far away he can go to college. But the arrival of the mysterious and equally restless Lena Duchannes (Englert) makes Gatlin suddenly tolerable.

She’s come to live with her uncle, Macon Ravenwood (Irons), a descendant of the town’s founders and an alleged Satanist who never leaves the moss-covered and heavily gated Ravenwood Manor. The popular, Bible-thumping socialites instantly hate her so naturally, Ethan is intrigued – and the fact that Lena introduces him to Bukoswki only makes her more exciting. It turns out that Lena is – duh, duh-duh-duh! – a witch, or rather a “caster,” as her kind are called in the vernacular. And at a ritual on her 16th birthday, she’ll find out whether she’s destined for goodness or evil. Her attempts at functioning as a normal girlfriend until then, full of stolen kisses and Friday night movie dates, bring a sweetness and relatability to these wild proceedings. Eventually, though — as in the “Twilight” movies — “Beautiful Creatures” introduces more and more supporting characters to add to the denseness of the complicated, overly explained mythology. Emma Thompson feels a bit too shrill in not one but two menacing roles, Viola Davis exists solely to provide exposition along with her usual grace, and a radiant Emmy Rossum vamps it up with reckless abandon as Lena’s sexy cousin, who has long since gone to the dark side. Ehrenreich, who made such an impression a few years back in Francis Ford Coppola’s “Tetro,” has a goofy charm about him that makes him attractive but also seemingly accessible; when I first saw him, I thought he had a young Leonardo DiCaprio thing going, but as he gets older he seems to have acquired an impishness in his eyes and smile that are reminiscent of a young Jack Nicholson. And Englert, the daughter of acclaimed director Jane Campion, has a natural beauty and directness about her that are appealing. She doesn’t sparkle in the sun – instead, she shines from the inside. And she will again someday with better material.

Acoustic Truth has got ‘Talent’ By JAMI KUNZER jkunzer@shawmedia.com Merely a year ago, Ryan Knott had plans to sign a professional baseball contract. The 23-year-old from Huntley hurt his knee, picked up a guitar and started making music with his best friend, 23year-old Sarah Lendy of Chicago. Now, as the duo Acoustic Truth, their album, “Time,” landed for a few days in iTune’s Top 100 Pop Albums upon its release earlier this week. They’ve met with managers and labels in California and received an invite to private audition for “America’s Got Talent.” To officially launch the album, they’re performing Feb. 17 at Lincoln Hall in Chicago as part of a benefit for MORE The People’s Music School, a non-prof- ONLINE it group that provides free after-school Watch a music education to children throughvideo out Chicago. of Acous“Things are taking off. Our fan tic Truth at base grew,” Knott said. “It’s crazy. We PlanitNorthwest.com. weren’t expecting any of this stuff. It’s been very surreal, especially because we’re so new at it.” With their single “Time” already released, the duo also plans to release another single, “Be My Valentine,” this week. They describe themselves as a “country pop and blueeyed soul duo,” comparing their music to The Civil Wars, Lady Antebellum, Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat. Though he’s been told not to reveal any more information about the results of the “America’s Got Talent,” audition until at least late March or early April, Knott said, “Things are looking good.” The invite came in January after Knott submitted one of their YouTube music videos online.

with filming, while Knott does much of the editing. A former baseball star from Marian Central Catholic High School in Woodstock, Knott graduated from Duke University and is close to completing a master’s degree in the law program at Creighton University in Omaha, Neb. Once that degree is complete, Knott said he plans to pursue music fulltime. Injured just before the baseball draft while at Duke, Knott said he began writing songs during his rehabilitation. He met Lendy during an internship at Camp Star, a camp for children with special needs. Both were camp counselors. The two became friends first, then best friends and since have become a couple. Before they met, both would write songs and keep the songs to themselves. “We weren’t really that close until we wrote a song (‘A New Me’) together, and it kind of went from there,” Knott said. The two first performed for friends and audiences in hospitals and rehabilitation centers. “If you would have asked me a year ago if I was doing music I would have laughed,” Knott said. “It was honestly the most random thing ever. . . I was planning on rehabilitating and coming back and playing ball. There’s something about music that keeps me going.”

In “Ni No Kuni,” the main character, Oliver, is transported to a parallel fantasy world where he sets out on a mission to stop an evil demon, save the world and bring his mother back to life.

Gorgeous ‘Kuni’ a creative masterpiece “Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch”

HHH Fans of Japanese role-playing games have been in desperate need of something worth playing for a long while now. Decent games that make their way stateside have become increasingly few and far between. Not to mention the proverbial growing pains the genre as been dealing with over the last few years. Finding that balance of innovating the system, while retaining core gameplay seems to be tough to accomplish. Despite these problems, I’m happy to report that a new game has cracked the formula. The PS3 exclusive, “Ni No Kuni: Wrath of MORE the White Witch” casts ONLINE you as Oliver, a young Watch a video of boy living in the bustling “Ni No Kuni” at little town of Motorville. PlanitNorthTragedy strikes when west.com/ Oliver’s mother suffers a gaming heart attack, leaving him in a dark place. He soon is transported to a parallel fantasy world, where he sets out on a mission to stop an evil demon, save the world and bring his mother back to life. Before I mention anything else, I need to address how positively gorgeous the visuals are in this game. Level-5, known for the Dragon Quest series of RPGs, have teamed with animation giant Studio

Pros: Drop-dead gorgeous visuals, addictive gameplay, above-average story. Cons: Battle system has its quirks, Teammate AI is underdeveloped. Ghibli. Led by famed director Hayao Miyazaki, the studio is responsible for some of the most beloved animated classics to come out of Japan. The game evokes an animation style akin to films such as “My Neighbor Totoro,” “Spirited Away,” or the more recent, “The Secret World of Arietty.” Fully animated cutscenes blend with in-game models to create a world that is simply a delight at which to look. The story itself is very Ghibli-esque, as well, subtly asking the question,“‘is this fantasy world real, or is it just a mechanism for Oliver to deal with his grief?” The plot can feel a tad generic at times, but it kept me interested, and threw a few curveballs at me along the way. Gameplay is reminiscent of the classic RPGs of yesteryear. Explore the world map, find a town, fight your way through a dungeon. It’s familiar territory, after our recent drought, however, I found it welcome. The battle system is an active turn-based variation. You have free roam of the battlefield, while actions like attack and magic have reload times. There are a few welcome twists to the formula, however. Much of the time, you won’t be

fighting with your main characters, but rather with “familiars,” small creatures you obtain throughout the game, first through story points, and later, by capturing them. Think Pokémon, but with more action. To me, one of the most important aspects of a game like this, is how much there is to do. In this respect, “Ni No Kuni” goes above and beyond. I’ve spent countless hours exploring the world, tracking down certain familiars, crafting new items through alchemy, and going out of my way to accomplish the numerous side-quests. It’s hard to see flaws in a game that’s this beautiful, but I did find a few issues. Occasionally, my familiars would get stuck on each other while trying to make their way to the enemy. Teammate AI is fairly lackluster, as well. There are parameters that let you customize how your party will behave, but they are unfortunately pretty undeveloped. These are almost non-issues, though, as they don’t break the game most of the time. While “Ni No Kuni” probably won’t recruit any newcomers to the JRPG genre, it serves as a love letter to gamers who have been clamoring for a return to form, while implementing some fun new ideas. The gorgeous visuals, addictive gameplay, and sheer number of ways to fill your time, add up to create a masterpiece that shouldn’t be missed.
