ROAD CREWS FACE HEAVY WORKLOAD

Bianchi accuses anonymous blog commenter of defamation By CHELSEA McDOUGALL

State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi filed a lawsuit last month alleging defamation and seeking damages.

McHenry County Division of Transportation mechanic Ben Justen inspects the tire of a motor grader Friday in Woodstock. Supervisor Dave Hansen said the average life of a county snowplow is 15 years, and after 10 years they alternate trucks to compensate for the aging equipment. Heavy usage, frequent maintenance and inclement weather add to the steady degradation of equipment and costs for municipal services.

fers to Bianchi as “Mr. Corruption.” “People need to realize that there are consequences for the statements that they post online,” said Charles Lee Mudd Jr., Bianchi’s attorney. “Others should not have to be engaged in defending meritless allegations that some defendant posts online.” Bianchi referred all questions to Mudd, but he provided the Northwest Herald with a copy of the complaint. The IP address, and thus the identity of the commenter, will come out as the case plays out, Mudd said.

Gun applications overwhelm in Ill.

By SHAWN SHINNEMAN sshinneman@shawmedia.com Frequent early season snow and ice have strained road crews across the county and forced some to consider the possibility that designated funds could run dry. Less than a month into winter, many departments have already used the majority of salt they had stocked before the season. Nearly constant plow and salt events – which can include snow drifting back across previously plowed streets – also have strained budgets for fuel and labor. “Everybody is concerned,” said Mark DeVries, maintenance superintendent at the McHenry County Division of Transportation. “We’re concerned, but we aren’t in panic mode yet. We don’t have to be there.” The MCDOT has used about 60 percent of its total contract for salt and has ordered about 80 percent of it, DeVries said.

WOODSTOCK – In a civil lawsuit, McHenry County State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi is alleging defamation and seeking damages – but from whom isn’t exactly clear. Bianchi filed the lawsuit as a private citizen in Chicago last month. He says anonymous comments posted on a local blog were intended to “defame, discredit and disparage” his reputation. Under the username “Fukoku Kyohei,” the person – who is listed as John Doe on the civil suit – posted comments on the McHenry County Blog that are critical of the state’s attorney. The poster accused Bianchi of arranging plea deals for politically connected defendants, embezzling taxpayer funds and other criminal activity. Fukoku Kyohei often re-

McHenry County Division of Transportation mechanic Ron Hayhurst changes the fuel filter in a snowplow Friday in Woodstock. The snow removal service for county roads has a slightly different situation than others because its budget kicks in Dec. 1. Depleting the department’s resources in the winter would likely not be felt until the summer, DeVries said. The department has already ordered salt reserves. But DeVries didn’t expect to have to request emergency appropriations later in the year – assuming the winter doesn’t keep up its current pace.

“Are we going so low on fuel that we won’t be able to mow ditches this year? No, I don’t see that happening,” he said. DeVries said his staff only got one day off during a 31-day stretch starting Dec. 8. In Woodstock, the city registered about 20 events in December alone, compared to two or three in Dec. 2012, Public Works Director Paul Ruscko said.

GENERAL INFORMATION: 815-459-4040

Minimum wage debate resonates with voters If Bruce Rauner manages to successfully back away from his recently unearthed statement from December that he favored reducing the state’s minimum wage by a dollar an hour, he will have dodged a very serious political bullet. According to a new Capitol Fax/We Ask America poll, the idea is absolutely hated in Illinois. Asked whether they would be “more likely or less likely to vote for a gubernatorial candidate who supports lowering the state’s minimum wage to the national rate of $7.25 an hour,” a whopping 79 percent said they’d be less likely. That’s definitely a result that could move actual votes on Election Day, particularly in the context of the messenger: a hugely wealthy political unknown whose advertising campaign is trying hard to turn him into a “regular guy.” Women were 84 percent less likely and men were 73 percent less likely to vote for a candidate who wanted to lower the minimum wage by a dollar an hour, according to the poll taken Wednesday of 1,135 likely voters with a margin of error of plus-minus 3.1 percent. Democrats were 90 percent less likely, while independents were 77

8LOTTERY

VIEWS Rich Miller percent less likely. Even Republicans were 63 percent less likely to vote for such a candidate. As the controversy was building last week, Rauner told a Carbondale audience that if the minimum wage was increased here, he would only support it if the state also made “our labor regulations and our tax burden much more attractive to small business.” He added that he still could support lowering the minimum wage “in the context of dramatically improving our schools and creating a business environment where everybody’s got jobs.” But by Wednesday, Rauner had completely backed away, claiming he was “flippant” when he unequivocally said in a December forum in the Quad Cities that he wanted to roll back the minimum wage to the national level because Illinois’ dollar-an-hour difference was “hurting our economy.” After a huge firestorm of controversy erupted, Rauner claimed that he actually could support raising the minimum wage, as long as it was coupled with some key

legal changes like unspecified workers’ comp and tort reforms. The Democratic Governors Association, which has formed an Illinois political action committee that likely will be used as a conduit to attack Rauner in the GOP primary, attempted to counter Rauner’s spin. “They say a gaffe is when a politician tells the truth,” said DGA Communications Director Danny Kanner. “In the case of Bruce Rauner, he showed his true colors when he said that Illinois’ minimum wage needs to be cut ... and voters won’t soon forget.” If voters do forget, then Rauner’s new position in favor of increasing the minimum wage finds favor with a majority of voters when asked: “Would you be more likely or less likely to vote for a gubernatorial candidate who supports raising the state’s minimum wage rate to $10 an hour?” According to the poll, 55 percent of likely Illinois voters would be more likely to support such a candidate, while 38 percent would be less likely. Women would be far more supportive (62 percent) than men (46 percent) of such a candidate. It’s a make or break issue for 81 percent of Democrats. A strong 65 percent of Republicans would be less likely to support a

candidate who backed a hike to $10 an hour, so Rauner may have now created a problem with his GOP primary voter base. Barely mentioned in the media’s coverage of the issue last week is that Sen. Kirk Dillard told the very same audience as Rauner that he favored allowing the “marketplace” to set the minimum wage and not the government. That position is as unpopular as Rauner’s original push for lowering the wage by a dollar. A very high 76 percent said they’d be less likely to vote for a gubernatorial candidate “who supported having no minimum wage whatsoever.” Seventy-five percent of women and 79 percent of men would be less likely to vote for the candidate, as would 82 percent of Democrats, 78 percent of independents and even 63 percent of Republicans. “Anyone suggesting eliminating it altogether may end up in the Guinness Book of World Records for the dumbest political idea ever,” said pollster Gregg Durham about the issue. Maybe not, but close enough.

Pilots grounded after landing at wrong airport By DAVID KOENIG and JIM SALTER The Associated Press DALLAS – The pilots of a Southwest Airlines flight that mistakenly landed at the wrong Missouri airport were grounded Monday, less than a day after they touched down at a small airfield that gave them only half as much room as normal to stop the jet. Southwest Flight 4013 was traveling Sunday evening from Chicago’s Midway Airport to Branson Airport but

instead landed at tiny Taney County Airport seven miles away. No one was hurt, but after the 124 passengers were let off the plane, they noticed the airliner had come dangerously close to the end of the runway, where it could have tumbled down a steep embankment if it had left the pavement. “As soon as we touched down, the pilot applied the brake very hard and very forcibly,” said Scott Schieffer, a Dallas attorney. “I was wearing a seat belt, but I was

lurched forward because of the heavy pressure of the brake. You could smell burnt rubber, a very distinct smell of burnt rubber as we were stopping.” Branson Airport has a runway that is more than 7,100 feet long – a typical size for commercial traffic. The longest runway at Taney County is only slightly more than 3,700 feet because it is designed for small private planes. After the jet stopped, a flight attendant welcomed

passengers to Branson, Schieffer said. Then, after a few moments, “the pilot came on and said, ‘Ladies and gentlemen, I’m sorry to tell you we landed at the wrong airport.’” Southwest spokesman Brandy King said it’s common for pilots to be grounded while the airline and federal aviation officials investigate. Both pilots are Southwest veterans. The captain is in his 15th year flying for the carrier. The first officer will mark 13 years in June, the airline said.

State officials file emergency rules for ‘petcoke’ By SOPHIA TAREEN The Associated Press CHICAGO – State officials unveiled proposed guidelines Monday for the handling and storage of petroleum coke in Illinois, a move that drew sharp criticism from business groups, who called it unnecessary, and residents, who said they didn’t go far enough. Taking cues from Chicago officials who outlined similar rules for companies in the city weeks ago, Gov. Pat Quinn announced emergency rules Monday that’ll be filed with the Illinois Pollution Control Board and could take effect statewide by the end of January. The proposed regulations include requiring companies

to install equipment that monitors wind speed, add dust suppression systems along conveyor belts that carry the material and submit plans to enclose their operations to the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency. Quinn’s announcement came at a news conference held within sight of openair piles of the black powdery substance on Chicago’s Southeast Side and came the same day as a public hearing on Chicago’s regulations and ongoing lawsuits with companies who store the substance in the Chicago area. “Petcoke” is a byproduct of oil refining. Environmental officials say the black dust is not hazardous, but Chicago

residents raised environmental and health concerns after some became airborne last summer and blew into their residential neighborhood. Breathing the dust can cause respiratory problems, such as exacerbating asthma. The statewide rules proposed Monday are subject to public feedback. “We don’t want the facilities to just move from Chicago to another part of Illinois,” Quinn said. “We are not going to be a dumping ground for any of this fugitive petcoke dust that can harm people’s lives and health.” Officials in Chicago have proposed city-specific regulations that include calling for storage facilities to enclose

materials like petcoke. Proposed ordinances pending before the City Council include a ban on the substance, although Mayor Rahm Emanuel has said such a step isn’t likely. Quinn said the pollution board’s process would help inform whether a ban on storing petcoke was necessary. Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s office, which helped file lawsuits against the companies, has said it is drafting statewide legislation on petcoke regulation, which is expected later this year. Still, Quinn’s move was met with criticism Monday as business groups, including the Illinois Manufacturers’ Association, called it burdensome for companies who were

cooperating. Companies that handle the substance around Chicago say they’re in the process of addressing concerns. Last month, Hammond, Ind.-based Beemsterboer Slag Corp., agreed to remove petcoke storage piles as part of a lawsuit filed by the city of Chicago and the state Attorney General’s office. KCBX Terminals Co., which stores petcoke from a nearby refinery in Whiting, Ind., said it has spent tens of millions to upgrade its facilities, including $10 million on dust suppression technology. “We hold the highest regard for the community and are committed to doing the right thing. We want to work

with the city to address the concerns of our neighbors and make every effort to meet the spirit of the proposed new rules,” said Mike Estadt, a KCBX operations manager, in a statement. “This includes a willingness to build a structure to cover the materials.” That doesn’t go far enough for some Chicago residents, who have complained the dust coats homes and food and has aggravated medical conditions, such as asthma, especially when it’s windy. “We clean constantly,” said Kate Koval, who has lived on the city’s Southeast Side for 15 years and supports a complete ban on storing petcoke. “There’s constantly a dust problem.”

Water ban lifted for part of West Virginia after spill By JONATHAN MATTISE The Associated Press CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Safe tap water gushed from faucets and shower heads in West Virginia on Monday, a welcome sight and sound for a small fraction of the 300,000 people who have not been able to use running water since a chemical spill five days ago. It could still be days before everyone in the Charleston metropolitan area is cleared to use the water, though officials said the water in certain designated areas was safe to drink and wash with as long as people flushed out their systems. They cautioned that the water may still have a slight licorice-type odor to it, raising the anxieties of some who believed it was still contaminated. “I’m not going to drink it. I’ll shower in it and do dishes in it. But I won’t drink it. I don’t think it’s (the chemical) all out,” said Angela Stone, who started the 30-minute or so process of flushing her system out soon after the ban was lifted. By Monday evening, officials had given the green light to about 15 percent of West Virginia American Wa-

ter’s customers, and company spokeswoman Laura Jordan said as much as 25 percent of its customer base could have water by the end of the day. The water crisis shuttered schools, restaurants and daycare centers and truckloads of water had to be brought in from out of state. People were told to use the water only to flush their toilets. “Finally,” said Stone’s husband, James Parker. “I can finally take a shower, do dishes and cook some regular meals.” Officials were lifting the ban in a strict, methodical manner to help ensure the water system was not overwhelmed by excessive demand, which could cause more water quality and service problems. An online map detailing what areas were cleared showed a very small portion in blue and a vast area across nine counties still in the ‘do not use’ red. Customers were credited with 1,000 gallons of water, which was likely more than enough to flush out a system. The average residential customer uses about 3,300 gallons per month. Some people said they weren’t worried about the

odor. “It’s not going to bother me as long as we know it’s clean,” said Peter Triplett, a state library commission worker whose home was near the first area allowed to use water. “It’s been rough going.” The first area cleared was downtown Charleston, the state capital and its largest city. Hospitals were open and flushing out systems, but schools were to stay closed Tuesday. The water crisis started Thursday when a chemical used in coal processing leaked from a Freedom Industries plant into the nearby Elk River. Complaints came in to West Virginia American Water about the odor and officials discovered the source was the chemical 4-methylcyclohexane methanol that spilled out of a 40,000-gallon tank. In all, state officials believe about 7,500 gallons leaked from the tank. Some of the chemical was contained before flowing into the river and it’s not clear exactly how much entered the water supply. Federal authorities, including the U.S. Chemical Safety Board, have opened an investigation.

Christie faces criticism from GOP rivals The ASSOCIATED PRESS CONCORD, N.H. – As Democrats intensify their probe in New Jersey, Gov. Chris Christie has found little support – and sharp criticism in some cases – from the slate of potential rivals for the Republican presidential nomination. At the same time, would-be allies from key states have been slow to rally behind the Republican governor, whose administration appears to have created a massive traffic jam to punish a political adversary. Some Republican leaders in Iowa and New Hampshire – states already gearing up for the nation’s first 2016 presidential nominating contests – offered only conditional support for Christie, acknowledging the New Jersey investigation is far from over. “I think only time will tell

on this,” said Bruce Rastetter, a wealthy Iowa businessman who led a group of like-minded Republican donors to New Jersey to encourage a 2012 Christie presidential run. “And if he didn’t have any knowledge, he should have a future.” Documents revealed last week that figures in the Christie administration may have intentionally caused major backups near the George Washington Bridge, linking the community of Fort Lee to New York City, to exact political retribution against a Democratic mayor who refused to endorse his re-election campaign. Christie fired a top aide and jettisoned his chief political adviser after internal communications confirming their involvement became public. He denied any personal “knowledge or involvement” in the lane closures.

Democrats in New Jersey on Monday formed special legislative committees with subpoena power, expanding the traffic-jam investigation into an abuse of power probe. But Christie, who is considering a presidential bid, is also facing criticism from his own party – particularly from other Republicans who are eyeing the presidency. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, weighing a second presidential candidacy, complimented Christie on Sunday for taking tough questions but raised new questions about the governor’s staffing decisions. “The people that you hire are the policies that are implemented,” Santorum said. “It’s very clear that the personnel there was not sensitive to what seemed to be a fairly obvious wrong thing to do.”

WASHINGTON – Just back from their own long break, Supreme Court justices set out Monday to resolve a politically charged fight over when the Senate’s absence gives the president the power to make temporary appointments to high-level positions without senators’ approval. The legal battle is the outgrowth of partisan rancor over presidential appointees that has characterized Washington over the past 20 years, and especially since President Barack Obama took office in 2009. Recess appointments have divided Democrats and Republicans, with views changing depending on which party holds the White House. But during more than 90 minutes of arguments Monday, the Obama administration was hard pressed to find support for its stand in favor of recess

appointments from justices named by Republicans and Democrats alike – including Obama. Justice Elena Kagan, an Obama nominee, seized on the political dispute to make the point to Solicitor General Donald Verrilli Jr. that “congressional intransigence” to Obama nominees may not be enough to win the court fight. Kagan, Verrilli’s predecessor as Obama’s top Supreme Court lawyer, suggested that it “is the Senate’s role to determine whether they’re in recess.” The court is writing on a blank slate as it considers for the first time the Constitution’s recess appointments clause. That clause allows the president to fill vacancies temporarily, but only when the Senate is in recess. The constitutional issue may be new to the court, but two justices lived through the political tussle over nominations. Both Chief Justice John

$5000

Roberts and Kagan were nominated to the federal appeals court in Washington, but saw their nominations blocked in the Senate. Roberts eventually won confirmation, but Kagan did not. And one of the lawyers involved in Monday’s case withdrew his nomination to the same court. The Senate has “an absolute right not to confirm nominees that the President submits,” Roberts said. The administration was “latching onto” the constitutional provision to combat the Senate’s refusal to act, even though it was written to deal with an era when horseback was the fastest mode of transportation and Congress was absent from Washington for long periods, Roberts said. Even Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, perhaps Verrilli’s most sympathetic questioner, said at one point, “I think to be candid, the Senate is always available. They can be called back on very short notice.”

Budgets will be evaluated • WINTER Continued from page A1 The department has started spraying down salt with deicing liquid, which helps increase its effectiveness and allows the department to conserve more salt. But the city is keeping other options in mind. One such idea would have crews spreading salt only on highrisk areas – hills, curves and intersections – and leaving straightaways without salt. Officials will be evaluating the budget in coming days to see whether projects that came in under budget this fiscal year could provide any significant funds toward fuel and labor. Another option would be asking the City Council to put emergency reserve funds toward snow and ice removal, Ruscko said. “It’s going to come down to what we’re dealt in the next couple months,” he said. In Huntley, where the budget turned over with the new year, Director of Public Works Jim Schwartz said officials have measured nearly 40 inches of snow this season. The weather forced Huntley to order additional salt to get through the winter. Schwartz said the village approved two salt orders of about $30,000 each. The money came from the general fund, he said. But he added the forecast they received back in October called for a tough December, and then drier months filling out the winter. “We’re not doing too bad if the weather tapers off,” he said.

Bianchi is seeking $75K in damages • BIANCHI Continued from page A1 As a public figure, whether Bianchi’s claims are supported by the law will be determined in court. Mudd believes they will. “With respect to defamation whether somebody is a public official or a private citizen, there can always be defamation,” Mudd said. “… That doesn’t change the fact that false statements can give rise to defamation, and false statements about criminal activity in particular do constitute defamation.” Under the law, the defamation burden is higher for public figures than it is for private citizens. Bianchi is seeking $75,000 in damages. The lawsuit was filed in federal court because the poster is believed to be from Japan, the complaint states.

Hunger, death in besieged Damascus area By DIAA HADID The Associated Press BEIRUT – Children, the elderly and others displaced by Syria’s civil war are starving to death in a besieged camp where women brave sniper fire to forage for food just minutes from the relative prosperity of Damascus. The dire conditions at the Yarmouk camp are a striking example of the catastrophe unfolding in rebel-held areas blockaded by the Syrian government. U.S. and Russian diplomats said Monday the warring sides are considering opening humanitarian corridors to let in aid and build confidence ahead of an international peace conference on Syria. Interviews with residents and U.N. officials, as well as photos and videos provided to The Associated Press, reveal an unfolding tragedy in the sprawling camp, where tens of thousands of Palestinian refugees and displaced Syrians are trapped under an intensifying yearlong blockade. Forty-six people have died since October of starvation, illnesses exacerbated by hunger or because they couldn’t obtain medical aid, residents said.

A child sits Jan. 6 on a broken sidewalk after hearing that Syrian authorities would allow civilians to leave in the Palestinian neighborhood of Yarmouk in Damascus, Syria. Hundreds tried to leave, only to find that fighting broke out, and the evacuation was canceled. “There are no more people in Yarmouk, only skeletons with yellow skin,” said 27-year-old resident Umm Hassan, the mother of two toddlers. “Children are crying from hunger. The hospital has no medicine. People are just dying,” she told the AP by telephone, adding that her 3-yearold daughter and 2-year-old son were rapidly losing weight from lack of food. The dead include Isra

al-Masri, an emaciated toddler who passed away on Saturday swaddled in a woolen sweater, her eyes sunken, her skin darkened, her swollen tongue wedged between her lips. The child was filmed minutes before her death, slowly blinking as she was held by an unidentified woman in a video sent to the AP by a 25-year-old resident, Sami Alhamzawi. “Look at this child! Look at her!” the woman in the video

shouts, thrusting the child before the camera. “What did she do to deserve this?” Other deaths suggest the extent of desperation among residents: Teenager Mazen al-Asali hung himself in late December after returning home without food to feed his starving mother. An elderly man was beaten to death by thieves who ransacked his home, looking for food and money. Deaths have also been reported by opposition groups, activists and the United Nations. Similar casualty figures were reported by the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which documents Syrian casualties through a network of activists on the ground. The U.N. confirmed 15 deaths, but spokesman Chris Gunness said it was impossible to know the real toll because of restricted access. “There is profound civilian suffering in Yarmouk, with widespread malnutrition and the absence of medical care,” Gunness said. “Children are suffering from diseases linked to severe malnutrition.” The camp and other blockaded areas pose a stark challenge for Syria’s government

and the opposition, who agreed to consider opening humanitarian access in the run-up to a peace conference next week in Switzerland that would bring the sides together for the first time. Speaking in the midst of a two-day series of meetings in Paris, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said they were also pressing for a cease-fire and prisoner exchange between the warring sides. But hopes appear slim. The U.N. humanitarian chief said last month that an estimated 250,000 people in besieged communities in Syria were beyond the reach of aid. The government has kept outside aid sharply limited. Key humanitarian routes are increasingly cut off by the fighting, and kidnappings of aid workers are on the rise. Both Assad’s forces and rebels have used blockades to punish civilians. Repeated efforts to bring food into Yarmouk have failed. Most recently, on Monday, six trucks loaded with U.N.-donated food to feed 10,000 people had to turn back after gunmen fired on the convoy, resident Alhamzawi said.

State police spokeswoman: Detailed checks just beginning • GUN Continued from page A1 And with 90 days to do the job after the 30-day window closes for local law enforcement agencies to make their objections, the agency has far more time than its counterparts in some other states, including Pennsylvania, where law enforcement has 45 days to investigate, and Wisconsin, where the state has 21 days. But local law enforcement officials say they were not given the resources for a task that was supposed to provide an extra safeguard: a 30-day window to ferret out applicants who might meet the state standards but have something in their backgrounds that could render their applications too risky to approve. Unlike the state police, which received millions of dollars to do the background checks, and unlike Wisconsin, where the state Justice Department also received additional funding, in Illinois, local law enforcement agencies were not given any more money. That means, said Cara Smith, a top adviser to Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart, that many applications won’t be adequately reviewed by the department. Or, she said, in a state where 400,000 applications are expected to be submitted the first year, there is a danger that the office won’t even get a chance to so much as glance at some applications in the 30-day objection period. “If this law was designed to find people who are oth-

erwise qualified and have something in their background that deserves a closer look – it’s not going to work,” Smith said. The need for such scrutiny already has become evident in a review of the applications that have come in. In examining 2,000 of the first 5,000 applications, the department has flagged more than 120 that it will recommend Dart object to. The allows objections for what it calls a “reasonable suspicion” that the applicants are dangerous even if their backgrounds would not automatically result in denials of their applications. Among those flagged by the sheriff’s department are a gang leader who has been arrested – though never convicted – a dozen times on aggravated battery with a dangerous weapon and other charges, and a man who was arrested but not convicted of domestic battery and endangering the life of a child. In Will County, officials are concerned that incompatibility and security issues with law enforcement computer systems might slow the vetting process and prevent them from noticing potentially dangerous people. “If somebody with local warrants in Winnebago County moves here, we have no way of checking that. And if somebody moved here six months ago and has not had any local contacts [with law enforcement], we won’t have anything on them in our local database,” said Ken Kaupas, deputy chief of the

structors and some others were allowed start applying. Then, on Jan. 5, the first day the process was opened to everyone else, more than 4,500 applications came in. Since then, Bond says, the agency has been receiving more than 1,000 applications per day. In Cook County, Smith said “the numbers are so high” that to keep up, the 20-person unit assigned to investigate the applications would have to be tripled in size. But state Rep. Brandon Phelps, a sponsor of the leg-

islation, said 30 days is long enough for local law enforcement to submit objections to the state panel made up of former prosecutors, judges and others. He also says it isn’t necessary to provide additional funds since local law enforcement isn’t involved with issuing the permits. Further, he and others said that because applicants have already passed background checks to obtain the state’s Firearm Owners Identification cards, the state could find itself in court if the panel upholds scores of local objections.

Not all roads see 70 mph Now that we’ve thawed from last week’s deep freeze, Illinois Department of Transportation crews hope to install about 900 new speed limit signs across the state. Unfortunately, hardly any of those signs will be installed along toll roads in Chicago. You’ll recall that as of Jan. 1, a new law increasing the maximum speed limit on Illinois’ toll roads and interstates to 70 For the record mph went into effect. The delay in If you aren’t traveling 70 mph posting the signs on Interstate 90, you likely are is because the getting passed. crews in charge of switching the speed-limit signs were busy with other tasks. IDOT had 1,755 trucks assigned to snow duty statewide and 3,700 full- and part-time employees were available to clear roads. We supported the idea of increasing the speed limit to 70 mph when the law was first discussed early last year. We still support the increase and are disappointed more Chicago area roads will not be seeing an increase in the posted speed limit. Of course, regardless of the posted speed limit, if you aren’t traveling at 70 mph on Interstate 90, you likely are getting passed. The increase is good for business. It’s helpful for businesses to have truck drivers arrive earlier to their destinations. Plus 34 states already have speed limits of 70 mph or higher, including neighboring Indiana, Iowa, Michigan and Missouri. Those trucks now will have to slow down when they reach Chicago’s suburbs. Those who drive 70 mph already in the suburbs likely will continue doing so – illegally. State Rep. Jim Oberweis, R-Sugar Grove, has vowed to fight IDOT over its decision to keep the speed limit on Chicago-area toll roads at 55 mph. He said it’s clear more than 85 percent of motorists on all expressways are traveling 70 mph or faster. “It’s unacceptable. They’re putting lawabiding citizens into danger,” Oberweis told the Chicago Tribune. The faster speed limits mean motorists must maintain a high level of alertness. Enjoy your faster toll roads and interstates, but be mindful of when and where it is legal to travel 70 mph.

Guns are poor insurance Imagine, if you will, a car insurance policy that would cover you, your passengers and those in other vehicles in case of an accident. So far, so good? Now suppose that same insurance policy had a rider that allowed a computer to run an algorithm, on a rare, random basis, to take control of your car and cause it to swerve into the ditch, or allow a wheel to fall off, or let the engine seize up. Not such great insurance, right? But you have a right to buy such a policy, you insist, despite admonitions from your friends. You heard of someone, somewhere, who had their expenses covered by a policy just like yours. Proponents of allowing teachers to carry guns in school see it as a form of insurance. “Most people don’t want to go where they know people are going to shoot back at them,” said Sen. Mark Christensen, who plans to introduce such a bill during this, his last legislative session. There hasn’t been a rush to arm teachers in Kansas, in part because of questions about liability insurance, a question that could derail a similar law in Nebraska. Gov. Dave Heineman is a supporter of gun rights, but sees guns in schools as “an accident waiting to happen.” The Nebraska State Education Association, and most school officials – even some whose schools have been the scene of shootings – oppose the idea. Christensen expected opposition from large school districts to his bill, which would also apply to colleges and universities. But, it can take too long for law enforcement to respond to a school shooting situation, Christensen said, especially in the rural district he represents. His bill would require a teacher who wants to carry a gun to get 24 hours of training from a Nebraska State Patrol-certified instructor, in addition to the eight hours already required for a concealed-gun permit. Only teachers approved by the school board would be allowed to carry concealed weapons, and identities of armed teachers would also be concealed. It’s true that response times might be slow in small, rural schools, where rifles and shotguns hanging in the rear windows of pickup trucks were common until federal laws forced young hunters to leave their weapons at home. Guns, if they are deemed necessary, are best handled by professionals. McCook (Neb.) Daily Gazette

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Progressivism? To the Editor: It’s the new liberal banner. It sounds positive and uncontroversial. After all, we all want to progress, don’t we? But progressivism isn’t what its advocates want everyone to think it is. It’s not a road to progress or any attempt to make progress. It’s a return to times in which groups fight among each other for government-distributed resources. Its objective is to use the power of government to design, order, mold and control society. Under this idea, politicians and bureaucrats identify what they believe to be societal flaws and use government to “fix” them. It results in the practice of unlimited government and the supremacy of the state, which has the duty to perfect humanity. To realize their goal, progressives must reject the Constitution, the Founders, individualism, God-given freedom and, in fact, God himself. Also, impediments to a progressive paradise are private property,

capitalism and markets free of state intervention. Today, its Obamacare’s birthcontrol mandate for the Little Sisters of the Poor and the administration’s disdain for religious conscience. Obamacare’s “fix” is for these nuns to sign a legal contract that the insurer “shall provide” contraception to enrollees independently and for free. But this contract directs others to provide birth control in their place and makes them complicit. This is simply a raw statement of state power directing the religious to follow orders. Thus, Obamacare forces nuns who have taken a vow of chastity and minister for the dying to implicate themselves in what they consider to be grave moral wrongs.

Chris Christie’s very sad day apologizing It is hard to pick a favorite line from New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s epic news conference Thursday. It ran approximately twice as long as “Lawrence of Arabia,” with only moderately fewer displays of ego. Among the best moments: “I don’t know whether this was a traffic study that then morphed into a political vendetta or a political vendetta that morphed into a traffic study,” Christie said. “I don’t know what makes a legitimate traffic study. ... I’ve been told that sometimes they’re done live, sometimes they’re done by computer model. I’ve heard that in the professionals who’ve testified for the Port Authority. But you’d have to go to them to ask them what a legitimate traffic study is. I probably wouldn’t know a traffic study if I tripped over it.” Or if hundreds of commuters did. My favorite part of this scandal is the attempt to claim that the incident was a trafficsafety study. If I were in New Jersey, I would be chasing someone around with a microphone, shouting, “But what did you learn in the traffic study? People deserve to know! Did you learn that if you put traffic cones somewhere, blocking lanes, there will be traffic? This is a great revelation! Let’s do a

VIEWS Alexandra Petri health study next! What happens if you whack your political opponents on the head with a bat?” Perhaps you can get away with anything if you pretend it’s a study. “I was just conducting a study to see what happens to your lunch when I flush it down the toilet,” the schoolyard bully explained. It’s possible Christie thought the whole exercise was about the public wanting to know how he was feeling. “I am a very sad person,” he informed us. Then: “I’m sad. I’m sad. That’s the predominant emotion I feel right now is sadness, sadness that I was betrayed by a member of my staff, sadness that I had people who I entrusted with important jobs who acted completely inappropriately, sad that that’s led the people of New Jersey to have less confidence in the people that I’ve selected. The emotion that I’ve been displaying in private is sad.” Then, just to drive it home. “I don’t know what the stages of grief are in exact order, but I know anger gets there at some point. I’m sure I’ll have that, too. But the fact is right now I’m sad.”

How sad was he? “I am a very sad person today. That’s the emotion I feel. A person close to me betrayed me, a person who I counted on and trusted for five years betrayed me. A person who I gave a high government office to betrayed me. I probably will get angry at some point, but I got to tell you the truth. I’m sad. I’m a sad guy standing here today, and very disappointed. And that’s the overriding emotion. Someone asked me that before. That’s the overriding emotion.” What kind of a day is it for you? “It’s a sad day for me. And I’m doing what I’m obligated to do under this job, because it’s the right thing to do, and I’m doing it. But it doesn’t make me angry at the moment. It just makes me sad.” They say the key to apologies is making a lot of “I” statements, but Christie may have overdone it. By the end, I felt we were supposed to apologize to him. Another theme of the news conference was that Christie was more sinned against than sinner, and that some of the people involved, (cough, David Wildstein) who claimed to be friends from school, were losers whom Christie did not remember at all. Mark Sokolich, the mayor of Fort Lee, N.J., whose traffic was disrupted, was a small fry on

whom Christie would never have wasted this kind of effort. “I mean, I don’t know this guy. Like I said, I may have met him in a greeting line or in a – in a big Bergen County event or at a town hall meeting or something. But I’m telling you, like, until yesterday when I saw his picture on TV, I wouldn’t have – I – if he walked in the room, I wouldn’t have been able to pick him out. So that’s not to diminish him in any way.” Sure. Of course not. This was clearly the sort of remark designed to make Sokolich feel great about himself. Before the news conference ended, word had surfaced that Sokolich was urging Christie not to travel to Fort Lee to apologize, saying it would be needlessly disruptive. “What was that whole spiel?” the mayor seemed to think. “It looked a lot less like apologizing than saying how sad you are about something that was in no way your fault, except in the sense that you, as governor, are always responsible for everything that happens in the state. If that is what an apology from Chris Christie looks like, I will pass.” It’s hard to blame him. • Alexandra Petri writes the ComPost blog at washingtonpost. com.

WL MAN ARRESTED AGAIN FOR HEROIN

WOODSTOCK – A Wonder Lake man was arrested for the third time in 18 months on drug charges after police said he was found to have heroin. Stephen J. Anton, 26, of 9021 Oriole Trail in Wonder Lake, was arrested Thursday after the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office received multiple phone calls from concerned citizens about suspicious activity at Anton’s house. Anton was in possession of three grams of heroin and multiple items of drug paraphernalia at the time of his arrest, McHenry County sheriff’s police said. He faces a Class 1 felony charge of possession with intent to deliver and a Class 4 felony charge of controlled substance possession along with two misdemeanor charges. A Class 1 felony is punishable by up to 15 years in prison. Anton is being held on $10,500 bond at McHenry County Jail. He will next appear in court at 9 a.m. Tuesday. Sheriff’s officials encourage residents to call the narcotics division at 815-334-4760 if they suspect drug activity in their area. – Jeff Engelhardt

Committee votes down proposal to limit concealed carry by county employees By KEVIN P. CRAVER kcraver@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – A McHenry County Board committee took a proposed policy restricting concealed carry for its employees out back and shot it. The committee voted Monday, 5-0, against moving forward with a policy that would forbid non-law enforcement county employees from carrying handguns during their official

duties, even if they have a valid state permit. The proposal would have exempted the 24-member County Board and other county-level elected officials. It became obvious early into the debate the measure did not have the votes needed to pass. The consensus by the time of the vote, reached in part by comments from two members of the county’s pro-concealed-carry organization, was that the measure

is unnecessary, ambiguous and unduly restrictive of employees’ Second Amendment rights. The Illinois State Police began earlier this month to accept applications for concealed-carry permits. “I feel we’re impeding on an employee’s right to do something outside their scope of work,” committee member Michael Skala, R-Huntley, said.

See RESTRICTIONS, page B6

What it means The McHenry County Board Management Services Committee voted Monday morning, 5-0, against proposed concealed-carry restrictions on county government employees. The restrictions would have exempted elected officials. Committee members John Hammerand, R-Wonder Lake, and Michael Walkup, R-Crystal Lake, were absent.

Michael Novak clears debris Monday from the Riverside Hotel apartment building at 3308 W. Elm St. in McHenry. The building was declared uninhabitable after a fire started in a three-bedroom apartment Sunday morning.

Apartment building repairs underway By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com McHENRY – The owner of the McHenry apartment building damaged by a fire Sunday hopes to have the 33 displaced residents back home “as soon as possible,” he said. The Riverside Hotel, a three-story, 40-unit apartment building at 3308 W. Elm St., was declared uninhabitable after a fire started in a three-bedroom apartment Sunday morning. A first-floor office and the Fox Hole Tap & Pizzeria, a restaurant in the building, also suffered significant water damage and were closed Monday. “[The fire damage] was pretty extensive in one apartment, but the water damage was pretty extensive throughout the building, too,” build-

Fundraiser to help victims McHENRY – Corkscrew Pointe has planned a fundraiser to help people displaced by Sunday’s fire. John Macrito, owner of Corkscrew Pointe, said he is looking for donations from local businesses to raffle off. He said he also plans to run beer specials during the event and have live music. After the fire, Corkscrew Pointe served as an intake location for the McHenry County Housing Authority to help victims.

Money will go directly to those affected by the fire, Macrito said. “I saw many of those people in my place [Sunday],” Macrito said. “A lot of them work locally.” The fundraiser is scheduled for 1 p.m. Jan. 26 at Corkscrew Pointe at 1402 N. Riverside Drive., McHenry For information or to donate, call 815-5788360. – Joseph Bustos

ing owner Dick Buchert said. He had about 20-plus people working on the building Monday, he said. The fire is still under investigation, McHenry Township Fire Pro-

tection District Chief Tony Huemann said. The occupants of the unit where the fire started were not home at the time of the blaze. The McHenry County Housing

Authority and Red Cross provided assistance to the displaced residents Sunday. The housing authority provided 26 residents with vouchers to use for a free hotel stay for up to a week, Community Service Director Sue Rose said. They also provided shelter for three pets, a cat, a guinea pig and a sugar glider. Additional assistance can be provided for up to four weeks, but Rose said it didn’t seem that would be necessary in this case. The Red Cross also provided 19 families with debit cards totaling about $3,300 so they could buy food, clothing and toiletries, Huemann said.

Chili Open Golf Classic back after three-year absence By JEFF ENGELHARDT jengelhardt@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – The golf season in Crystal Lake is about to start a little early. After three consecutive years of cancellations, the Doc Haznow Chili Open Golf Classic will return to Main Beach on Saturday for golfers willing to test their games in cold and icy conditions. The recent arctic blast was a needed change of fortune for the once annual event that had been plagued by warm temperatures, causing the lake to be only partially frozen if at all since it was last held in 2010. But recent subzero temperatures have made frozen Crystal Lake a prime spot for the makeshift nine-hole, par-32 course. Joe Davison, recreation supervisor for Crystal Lake Park District, said it was exciting to see conditions set up for the event to take place after all the cancellations. Northwest Herald file photo

St. Charles man shoots icicles from house By ASHLEY SLOBODA asloboda@shawmedia.com ST. CHARLES TOWNSHIP – Authorities last week told a St. Charles Township resident he could not shoot at icicles from his bathroom window. According to a Kane County Sheriff’s Office report, police responded to the 34W300 block of Fox River Drive in St. Charles Township on Friday morning because a resident saw a neighbor firing a gun out of his window.

The loud gunshots scared her dog, the resident told police. The man, who lived in the 6N300 block of Essex Avenue, appeared to be shooting at icicles off an overhang at his house – not at anyone, police reported. The man told police he was indeed shooting his .22-caliber revolver out the bathroom window at icicles. He reportedly claimed he was firing the gun in a safe manner because he was pointing it up and not at anybody.

“He stated that if anybody was hit by the falling round, it would be just like getting hit with a piece of hail,” police reported. With neighbors nearby and the potential for pedestrians, police reportedly told the man he couldn’t shoot out his window. He suggested he use a broomstick or long pole instead, according to the report. “[He] advised that he didn’t know he couldn’t shoot out the window of his residence, and it won’t happen again,” according to the report.

LAKE IN THE HILLS: EMERGENCY

Two injured, three pets dead in fire By EMILY COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com LAKE IN THE HILLS – A residential fire sent two Lake in the Hills residents to the hospital early Monday morning, a fire official said. The Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Protection District responded at 1:33 a.m. Monday to a residential fire at 305 Chippewa Trail, according to a news release. The residents had evac-

uated the raised ranch-style house after one discovered fire coming out of a bedroom, the release said. When crews arrived, fire was showing from the lower level of the home. One resident was taken to Advocate Sherman Hospital with burns and another was treated for smoke inhalation, Assistant Fire Chief Peter Van Dorpe said. Two cats and a dog also died in the fire. Crews were able to extinguish the fire, and the house

was vented to allow accumulating smoke out of the house, the release said. Crews were on the scene until after 3 a.m. The fire is still under investigation, and damage is estimated at more than $40,000, the release said. The Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Protection District was assisted by the Carpentersville, Crystal Lake, Huntley, Fox River Grove, Barrington Countryside fire departments.

McHenry County Judge Sharon Prather accepted the plea agreement and sentenced the man to two years of sex offender probation, during which Krusee must undergo sex offender treatment. The judge also sentenced him to 180 days in McHenry County Jail, with credit for 48 days served. Krusee also must pay a $1,500 fine and register as a sex offender. Krusee was indicted in February 2013. According to Assistant State’s Attorney Sharyl Eisenstein, Krusee possessed a picture of a female child engaged in a sex act. – Chelsea McDougall

Suntory to buy Beam $16 billion deal will create third largest spirit business By BRUCE SCHREINER and CANDICE CHOI The Associated Press NEW YORK – The maker of classic American liquors such as Jim Beam and Maker’s Mark has agreed to be purchased by a Japanese company in a $13.62 billion deal that would create the third largest global premium spirits business. Shares of Beam Inc. rose 24 percent Monday after it said it agreed to be acquired by Suntory Holdings Ltd., a Japanese beverage company. The combined company would have annual sales of more than $4.3 billion. The deal follows a number of acquisitions of alcohol brands in recent years, including Anheuser-Busch InBev’s $20.1 billion deal last year to buy the other half of Mexican brewer Grupo Modelo that it didn’t already own. The acquisition also comes at a time when the taste for bourbon – a type of American whisky that is made primarily of corn and typically distilled in Kentucky – continues to grow both domestically and abroad. In the U.S., sales volume for bourbon and Tennessee whiskeys such as

Jack Daniels has grown 26 percent over the past decade, according to the Distilled Spirits Council, an industry group. Exports of U.S. whiskeys has grown to roughly $1 billion last year, more than double what it was a decade ago. Demand is so robust that Beam last year even considered reducing the alcohol content for Maker’s Mark because of a supply shortage. The company scrapped the idea after a backlash by fans of the higher-end bourbon. “We’re basically in the middle of a global whiskey renaissance,” said Frank Coleman, a spokesman for the Distilled Spirits Council. Suntory and Beam already had a relationship. Suntory distributes Beam products in Japan and has a portfolio of spirits with whiskies, including Yamazaki and Hakushu as well as Midori liqueur and other beverages. And Beam, which is based in Deerfield, distributes Suntory’s products in Singapore and other Asian markets. Suntory President and Chairman Nobutada Saji said in a statement the acquisition will help Suntory further

its global growth. In recent years, Suntory has also purchased French beverage maker Orangina Schweppes Group and GlaxoSmith Kline’s Lucozade and Ribena drinks. Beam spokesman Clarkson Hine said for now, the deal will result in few changes for fans of Beam’s bourbons. He also said Beam, which was spun off as a stand-alone liquor company in 2011 from conglomerate Fortune Brands Inc., will continue with its current management. “It’s business as usual,” Hine said, noting that Suntory has indicated it wants the company to “keep doing what we’re doing.” Suntory will pay $83.50 per share, a 25 percent premium to Beam’s Friday closing price of $66.97. The companies put the deal’s value at about $16 billion, including debt. Suntory plans to fund the deal with available cash and fully committed financing from The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ. Both companies’ boards unanimously approved the transaction, which is targeted to close in the second quarter. The deal needs approval from Beam Inc. stockholders.

In difficult times, creative businesses stand out I really enjoy sharing about the creativity of chamber members. Creativity that takes advantage of opportunities can be the difference between success and failure. One such innovative entrepreneur is Glen Gilmer, owner of True Blue Coupons and Glen’s Lawn Service. Gilmer established Glen’s Lawn Service as a successful lawn care company during the 1990s. Diligent and reasonably priced with references to boot, Gilmer was and is well thought of by those who use him. Yet when 2008 hit, Gilmer found his business, Glen’s Lawn Service, needed new customers to replenish some lost through the recession. That was when Gilmer followed the old adage “adversity is beset with opportunities” and True Blue Coupons was born. Gilmer creatively spearheaded True Blue Coupons, an affordable coupon flyer, as a way to advertise Glen’s Lawn Service to the community with other organizations sharing the cost. He distinguished his flyer by its unusual blue color and 11-inch by 15-inch size that cradles all other mailers. Kudos to Gilmer for developing a cost-effective way to get the good news to the commu-

Provenzano opposes proposed gun limits • RESTRICTIONS Continued from page B1 The proposed rule would have forbidden county employees from carrying in county-owned vehicles or their own personal vehicles while on the clock. The state concealed-carry law already forbids carrying in government buildings, but allows people with the permit to store their weapons in their locked vehicles and out of view if entering a place where carrying is banned. About 350 county employees are allowed to use their personal vehicles for work to varying degrees, Deputy County Administrator John Labaj said. Opponents said essentially requiring employees who get concealed-carry permits to leave their weapons at home as a requirement of their jobs was unfair. Once people go through the state-mandated course, get a background check and get a permit, they have the right to carry and store their weapons in their vehicles, committee member Anna May Miller, R-Cary, said. “I am uncomfortable with [the restriction], right on its face,” Miller said. Skala further questioned how many employees even own firearms or will get the permit, and asked whether the committee was crafting a restriction that would only apply to a handful of people. County Board member Nick Provenzano, R-McHenry, spoke to the committee in opposition to the proposed limits. He is not on the committee, but is a founding member of the McHenry County Right to Carry Association. He called concerns about liability a “red herring” and warned that a civil rights lawsuit brought by any employee opposed to the restrictions could prove costly. He also pointed out that elected officials exempting themselves from rules they expect others to follow doesn’t sit well with voters. “When government officials start exempting themselves from their laws, it shows they’re out of touch,” Provenzano said. Provenzano’s warning about litigation is valid, given that gun-rights groups in Illinois and elsewhere have enjoyed repeated court victories overturning restrictive gun-control laws.

crafted the concealed-carry bill after a federal court struck down the state’s total ban – Illinois was the last remaining state to not allow some form of carrying handguns for self-defense in public. A federal court last week invalidated Chicago’s ban on selling firearms in city limits. The fact that McHenry County seems to be the only area government worried about concealed carry also factored into the committee’s rejection. When asked what other counties are doing, Labaj said he found after calling them in recent weeks that they’re not doing anything. There was talk of continuing the debate to include involving the board’s Law and Justice Committee and sending confidential surveys to employees, but Provenzano pushed them to vote, citing that the majority clearly had significant problems with the proposal. Illinois’ law, one of the more stringent of the 50 states, allows residents to obtain a five-year concealed-carry permit for a $150 fee after completing a 16-hour training course, the longest of any state. Nonresidents must pay a $300 fee for a permit. Illinois does not recognize concealed-carry permits from other states, although the new law allows nonresidents passing through to keep their weapons in their cars. Besides government facilities and courthouses, carrying is forbidden in parks and festivals, mass transit, schools and col leges, hospitals, stadiums and bars and dining establishments that make more than half of their revenue from alcohol sales. Business owners can ban concealed weapons from their properties, but must place a sign designed by the state police at the entrance.

Riverside Hotel provides pay-by-the-week housing for typically low-income or disabled residents, Rose said. Most of the residents were single men, but there were some children and couples living there. Rose arrived on the scene about noon Sunday and started the intake process for assistance at Windhill Pancake Parlor, which is located across the street, she said. The restaurant also provided the fire victims with free food and coffee

while they waited, something Rose has never seen a business do before in her 19 years at the housing authority. The intake process, which took about five hours, was later relocated to Corkscrew Pointe, which opened up a backroom for the emergency responders and fire victims, Rose said. “It’s always stressful for everybody involved, for the emergency responders and certainly for the victims,” she said. “With Windhill and Corkscrew Point being so cordial and generous, it seemed to alleviate a lot of the anxiety. We were able to reassure them that they would give them a place to stay, a roof over their heads.”

CL’s Herrig answers call – eventually Fighter picked for ‘Ultimate Fighter’ By JEFF ARNOLD jarnold@shawmedia.com When a Las Vegas phone number kept showing up on her caller ID, Felice Herrig’s instincts told her to ignore it. But after receiving four

calls from the same number, the Crystal Lake resident insisted her manager call and find out who was constantly bothering her. She never expected the number to belong to UFC President Dana White. “I had to call him and say, ‘Sorry I didn’t answer your phone call,’ ” Herrig said Monday. “But it probably scored some cool points for me.

VIEWS Tom Musick

Blackhawks feel the burn at workout CHICAGO – The first few shots are a piece of frozen cake. Slap-slap-slap-slap-slap. After all, we’re talking about the defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks here. You think they’ve never practiced a rapid-fire shooting drill? Please. Slap-slap-slapslap-slap. But now something is happening. Now, the burn is kicking in. After all, we’re Kris Versteeg talking about human beings here. You think these guys are robots or something, that they’re immune to muscle fatigue? Please. Slap-slap-slap-slap-slap. Yeah, this is starting to hurt a little bit. It feels as if the pucks are gaining weight. “Your calves are burning, your thighs are burning,” said Hawks forward Kris Versteeg, a seven-year NHL veteran. “But it’s more in your forearms.” And it’s not finished yet. The Hawks work on all sorts of drills during practice, but few are as fun to watch as the rapid-fire drill. A player steps into the slot, readies his stick, and fires dozens of shots into an empty net as assistant coach Jamie Kompon continues to feed passes. A recent drill included Versteeg, Bryan Bickell, Brandon Saad and Michal Handzus near the end of practice at Johnny’s IceHouse West. Each player stepped forward one at a time, and as he ripped shot after shot, his teammates caught their breath. Kompon mixed the angle of his passes – some good, some bad – because players need to be ready for unpredictability in games, when sticks are swinging and ice chips are flying and opponents are looking to drill you into the seventh row. When puck meets stick, every moment matters. “Catch it and hammer it,” said Bickell, a 6-foot-4, 233-pound forward from Ontario. “Believe it or not, the game comes down to seconds. If you wait that extra second, there’s a stick or there’s a guy in the lane that takes away [your shot]. “So if you work on it in practice, it will carry over to the games.” It’s hard to say exactly when the drill will pay off. Maybe the rapid-fire moment will arrive Tuesday – this is not a test – during the Hawks’ game against the Colorado Avalanche, a young team with a promising future. Or maybe a Hawks shooter will accept a pass and fire a shot that could decide the outcome Friday against the Anaheim Ducks or Sunday against the Boston Bruins, two legitimate obstacles to the Hawks’ goal of backto-back championships.

PRAIRIE RIDGE 71, CL SOUTH 65

Wolves bounce back for FVC Valley win PR recovers from loss to edge Gators By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – Forward Steven Ticknor’s 3-pointer midway through the fourth quarter was both a pivotal moment and a snapshot of everything that went right for Prairie Ridge. Forward Ryan Gilbert had a quality shot, but whipped a pass instead to Ticknor at the top of the key. Ticknor nailed the shot for a four-point lead, and Crystal Lake South never had another shot at taking the lead. The basket came in a pivotal nine-point run for the Wolves, who held off South, 7165, in their Fox Valley Conference Valley Division boys basketball game Monday at Gator Alley. “That was wonderful,” said Ticknor, who scored 18 points and grabbed a team-high seven rebounds. “I was happy Ryan made that extra pass because he could have taken that shot and buried it, too. I was just happy to make it for the team.” The Wolves (9-7 overall, 1-2 FVC Valley) bounced back from Friday’s 55-29 loss to Cary-Grove and thought sharing the ball was key. “We’ve been up and down most of the year, hopefully we can string some good efforts in a row,” Prairie Ridge coach Corky Card said. “That’s probably the best we’ve played together. We really moved the ball well on offense and we made a lot of extra passes.” Card said he was not worried about a division game as much as just having the Wolves give their best effort. They shot 16 of 25 in the second half to overcome a strong shooting night from South, which was 22 of 38 from the field (for 57.9 percent) and hit 11 3-pointers.

BULLS NOTES

Rose off crutches; Wizards top Bulls By JOE COWLEY jcowley@suntimes.com CHICAGO – The Bulls would much rather have Derrick Rose on the court than simply sitting on the bench as the highest-paid assistant coach in team history, but at this point, any progress is progress for the injured superstar. According to coach Tom Thibodeau on Monday, Rose is now off crutches, and with the surgically repaired right meniscus improving, could be joining the team on road trips in the next few weeks. By February, the hope was to have Rose on the bench, much like he was late last season, giving his teammates another set of eyes and another voice. “He’s coming along fine,’’ Thibodeau said of Rose. “He’s off the crutches. He’s doing more and more, but he still has a long way to go. But he’ll probably start traveling in the next couple weeks. But he’s doing great.’’ The immediate question Rose will have to answer, however, was his mind-set toward management in the wake of the Luol Deng trade. According to VP of basketball operations John Paxson, both [board chairman] Jerry [Reinsdorf] and [general manager] Gar [Forman] spoke to Rose immediately about the deal last week.

be allowed to travel only to and from the gym during the taping of the show in which she faces the potential of having to fight three times in six weeks. As part of the deal, Herrig said she must sign a $3 million confidentiality agreement, keeping the show’s result a secret. It’s a schedule Herrig appeared ready to walk away from in the days leading up to her unanimous decision loss to Tecia Torres at Invicta FC 7. “I was kind of burned out and for women, there was really no end goal,” said Herrig, who was ranked No. 5 in the world before losing to Torres. “You constantly fight, you constantly put your body through a lot and the money really isn’t that great. “It was getting to the point where I was like, ‘Why?’... It wasn’t that I didn’t love fighting, but you can only invest so much into it when it’s not paying off.” White’s call that UFC had purchased her contract changed everything. Between now and when taping begins in May, Herrig will continue to train with coach Jeff Curran in Crystal Lake. But the opportunity with UFC will allow her to step up several aspects of her preparations from hiring a full-time nutritionist to

Bulls at Orlando, 6 p.m. Wednesday, CSN, AM-1000 “Our communication with Derrick has never led us to believe that [he’s unhappy],’’ Paxson said. Bulls fall to Wizards: There was bound to be a Luol letdown coming. A game in which Luol Deng’s absence would finally be felt after his trade to Cleveland last week. It came Monday night in a 102-88 loss to the visiting Washington Wizards, and now the question for a team that’s seen obstacle after obstacle thrown in its path is how quickly will it be able to counterpunch. What’s no longer a question is the mind-set of Joakim Noah. The All-Star center was the most distraught about the Deng trade and he gave the media the silent treatment until after Saturday’s win against Charlotte. “They see the game differently than out there on the court,’’ Noah said of Bulls management. “They’re not out there on the court, they’re not on the plane. They don’t know how much Lu meant to me personally. But like I said, I’m not mad at anybody.’’

flying in top-level female competition from overseas to help her prepare for “The Ultimate Fighter.” Herrig previously appeared on the reality TV show “Fight Girls.” Herrig also will begin seeing a sports psychologist, making sure she is ready for an opportunity that could deliver a UFC championship. Curran believes after Herrig struggled with possibly walking away after 11 years as a professional fighter, Herrig will make the most of the chance in Las Vegas. “[Before the fight] I felt like everything was just adding up into a lot of something and I don’t know what that was,” Curran said Monday. “Now, she’s motivated and being pushed in the right direction.” With being promoted to the UFC, Herrig understands the exposure and the expectations will only grow. That has sharpened her focus for the next several months. Curran said, between Herrig’s personality and already being a known commodity in the fight community, she is a perfect fit for the UFC-produced reality show. The rest, Herrig said, is up to her. “I’m going to be on the big stage, and a lot more eyes are going to be on me,” Herrig said. “But that’s what I have always wanted. So I know I have to be ready.”

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau has bumped heads with the front office and could be headed out of town before the end of his contract, writes Sun-Times columnist Rick Morrissey.

Thibs vs. GarPax: Loser will be Bulls Someday, Tom Thibodeau will simply vanish from Chicago. The only thing left will be the last, faint echo of his ragged voice as he heads to his next job. No goodbyes. No farewell news conference. No full-page ad in the local newspapers thanking fans. That’s how I expect it to end. Badly? Oh, absolutely. And the Bulls will be the worse for it. What I’m laying out here goes well beyond the saying that every coach is hired to be fired. No NBA coach stays forever. We all know that. But there has been too much rancor between Thibodeau and the Bulls’ front office over the past few years, too many whispers about his future and too many clenched jaws around the team to think he’s going to make it through anywhere close to the four years on his contract. He’s in the first year of an extension he agreed to in October 2012. The latest rumor might seem like a wild one, but my guess is that it didn’t materialize out of thin air. “There are rumblings around the Chicago Bulls’ offices these days that Tom Thibodeau already has a deal in place to coach the Knicks next season,” the New York Daily News’ Mitch Lawrence wrote recently. How’s that for a declarative sentence? Thibodeau dismissed the report, and Bulls fans are probably saying, “Who cares what a New York writer has to say about a coach in Chicago?’’ The rumblings Lawrence heard could have been the L clattering a few blocks from the United Center. But experience tells us that reports like these have roots somewhere. Between the offseason firing of assistant Ron Adams against Thibodeau’s wishes to the recent trade of Thibs’ favorite player, Luol Deng, you have to wonder when the head coach is going to say he has had enough. Or, to use a favorite phrase of his, more than enough. It’s hard to believe that the Knicks would risk a hefty tampering fine for negotiating with Thibodeau. But it’s not hard to believe that Thibs has let other people know his frustration in dealing with Bulls vice president John Paxson and general manager Gar Forman. And it’s not hard to believe GarPax is sick of Thibodeau. I wrote the other day that Thibodeau’s reputation as a taskmaster might scare away elite free agents who aren’t interested in practicing hard. But there’s no denying his ability to win under any circumstances and no matter how few arrows management

VIEWS Rick Morrissey puts in his quiver. There are mules less stubborn than this guy. He too often has refused to cut down on his players’ minutes. His idea of “resting” players quite possibly involves a bed of nails. And he has the reputation inside the Bulls offices of being difficult. But, again, he wins. That sentence is the answer to just about everything in sports. Yet the more the reports leak out – always from distance shores – you wonder if winning is enough. It doesn’t have to end badly, of course. The two sides could find a mediator or a marriage counselor who can convince them not to blow a good thing. But it sure seems to be headed down a one-way street. We’ve been through this before with Phil Jackson and Jerry Krause. We know the signs. Here’s the difference: Thibodeau seems to win no matter what players he’s coaching. Jackson could coach anyone as long as the player’s first name was Michael, Shaq or Kobe. I don’t happen to believe that Bulls management wants the team to tank the season in order to get a better lottery pick. This isn’t “Major League,” where the team wins despite ownership’s every attempt to throw the season. But there is the slight whiff of that here, and it wouldn’t be surprising if Bulls players think a clunker of a season is exactly what Paxson and Forman want. It certainly would be like Thibodeau to use it as a motivational tool. Maybe a front-office flowchart for a locker-room dartboard? The best revenge for Thibodeau has always been winning, and this is no different. Going into Monday’s game against the Wizards, the Bulls had won five straight games, three straight since they traded Deng to Cleveland. No Deng or Derrick Rose? No problem. Short of management trading Joakim Noah, the Bulls are going to make the playoffs in the weak Eastern Conference, which is a contest to choose the tallest Chihuahua. Wait, they wouldn’t trade Noah to spite Thibodeau, would they? • Rick Morrissey is a Chicago Sun-Times sports columnist who can be reached at rmorrissey@suntimes.com.

ZURICH – Cristiano Ronaldo has won the FIFA Ballon d’Or award for 2013, ending Lionel Messi’s four-year run as the world’s best player. Ronaldo scored 69 goals for Real Madrid and Portugal last year, and his stunning hat trick against Sweden in a decisive World Cup playoff was perhaps the defining individual performance. He beat out Barcelona’s Messi and France winger Franck Ribery, who helped Champions League winner Bayern Munich to a sweep of major titles. Germany dominated the other major awards, with goalkeeper Nadine Angerer named women’s player of the year ahead of United States forward Abby Wambach, last year’s winner, and Marta of Brazil. Voting was done by national team captains and coaches, plus selected journalists, in FIFA’s 209 member countries who chose their top 3 preferences. In a tight race, Ronaldo received 1,365 points, Messi had 1,205 and Ribery got 1,127.

Wisconsin up to No. 3 in AP poll, Illinois drops out Arizona and Syracuse remain No. 1 and 2 in The Associated Press college basketball poll for a sixth straight week and six newcomers joined the Top 25. The Wildcats (17-0) received 61 first-place votes Monday from the 65-member national media panel while the Orange (16-0) got the others. After 11 ranked teams lost at least one game, the changes started at No. 3, where Wisconsin moved up one spot to replace Ohio State, which lost two games and dropped to 11th. Michigan State was fourth followed by Wichita State, Villanova, Florida, Iowa State, Oklahoma State and San Diego State. No. 19 Cincinnati, No. 20 Creighton, No. 22 Pittsburgh, No. 24 Saint Louis, and Oklahoma and UCLA, which tied for 25th, all moved into the rankings this week, replacing Oregon, Missouri, Gonzaga, Illinois and Kansas State.

Azarenka starts Aussie title defense with victory MELBOURNE, Australia – Victoria Azarenka began her bid for a third consecutive Australian Open title with a 7-6 (2), 6-2 win over Johanna Larsson on Tuesday as the start of a predicted heat wave arrived at Melbourne Park. Conscious of the time and the temperature, former No. 1-ranked Caroline Wozniacki and No. 11 Simona Halep raced to straight-set wins in their first-round matches on the other show courts. Second-ranked Azarenka had a tougher time on Rod Laver Arena against Larsson, who twice had chances to serve for the first set but lost it in a tiebreaker. – Staff, wire reports

PR’s Routzahn to move to Texas By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com Prairie Ridge sophomore Ethan Routzahn, a pitching prospect, will leave the Crystal Lake school after this spring semester. Routzahn, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound right-hander, tweeted Monday: “So I will be moving from Illinois to Texas in the summer. It’s my last semester at PR.” Routzahn pitched on Prairie Ridge’s varsity base-

ball team as a freshman last season, and he earned national recognition when he was a finalist for USA Baseball’s 16U team last year. Routzahn has Ethan w o r k e d o u t Routzahn each summer for several years at the Texas Baseball Ranch in Montgomery, Texas. “That is one reason we’re

moving there,” Routzahn said. “We’re looking at homes in The Woodlands, which is very close to the ranch.” Ron Wolforth founded the ranch and teaches the “Athletic Pitcher Workout,” which uses different teaching techniques than many programs and is aimed at increasing a pitcher’s velocity. “I’ll be able to go there a lot from where we’ll be living,” Routzahn said. “We’re probably moving in the second or third week of June, so

it won’t be a distraction for my high school season.” Rob Routzahn, Ethan’s father, is a marketing manager for IBM and works from their home most days, which allows the family flexibility for the move. Routzahn felt he pitched well in the USA Baseball tryouts last summer, but he did not make the national team. He said he had reached 88 mph on a speed gun when he was working out over the summer.

CL South’s Mahoney scores 18, all on 3s, in loss • WOLVES Continued from page C1 The lead changed four times early in the fourth quarter before Prairie Ridge, trailing 56-53, put together its key spurt. “It was a thrill [to play in that game],” Wolves guard Payton Otto said. “Those games that are close and back and forth like that are why I love basketball so much. The pace of the game

and fast speed pumps your adrenaline up.” South’s Chris Mahoney and Otto traded 3s back and forth to start the quarter. Mahoney, who scored 18 points on six 3s, gave South (11-4, 1-2) a 54-50 lead with his third 3 of the quarter before Otto answered with his second. The Gators’ Caleb Johnson scored on a layup, but Prairie Ridge reeled off its 9-0 run. South had a shot to tie

in the final minute, but Tyler Baker’s 3 from the left corner bounced off the rim and Wolves forward Jack Berg rebounded and was fouled. “We knew we didn’t play as well as we could on Friday,” Ticknor said. “We thought we’d just play all out tonight. South’s had a great record and a great season, we just played as hard as we could.” Michael Bradshaw led the Wolves with 23 points, while

Otto added 13. Forward Austin Rogers led the Gators with 20 points and Collin Wagner hit three 3s and finished with 10. “They made some big shots and they got rolling,” Gators coach Matt LePage said. “We had way too many turnovers, 23 in our own gym. That was a big factor. Defensively, 46 in the second half is about as bad as it gets. It was way too easy for them, but give PR credit.”

8INSIDE BOYS BASKETBALL Athlete of the Week CHRISHAWN ORANGE Jacobs, jr. The Golden Eagles’ guard scored a game-high 18 points to lead his team past McHenry, 53-50, on Wednesday in a Fox Valley Conference Valley Division game. Jacobs (6-6 overall, 2-0 FVC Valley) got a big boost from its 6-foot-1 point guard in the second quarter when Orange scored 11. He hit all three field-goal attempts in that quarter, one for a 3-pointer, and was 4 for 4 at the free-throw line. Twice in that quarter, Orange showed how tough he is to stop by rebounding on the defensive end and driving all the way to the other end to score at the rim. Orange also scored on a driving basket with 1:15 to go that gave Jacobs a three-point lead.

Noteworthy Big win for Warriors: McHenry was thrilled about its 58-57 victory against Crystal Lake South on Friday at West Campus. The Warriors dropped a close game on the road, 53-50, at Jacobs two days earlier, but came back to knock off the Gators. “Coming in, on paper, South is probably as good – if not better – than anybody in our conference,” McHenry coach Tim Paddock said. “And whenever you get a chance to beat a top team and win a game at home, you’re going to be in the hunt.” South, after an 8-0 start, figures to be a factor in the FVC Valley race, but Gators coach Matt LePage knows his team needs every win it can get. “Road conference games are so hard, and if you can steal a win, it’s such a bonus in the race for the [division],” LePage said. “We had a chance, and so it’s tough to

swallow because we played well enough to win.” Get them next time: Richmond-Burton lost Friday to Burlington Central, 70-46, in a matchup of two of the perennial Big Northern Conference East Division contenders. Both teams have one loss with a long way to go, but the regular-season finale between them at R-B’s Lou Ramirez Gymnasium likely will have division title meaning. “It seems like we have one close game with BC and they drill us in the other one,” R-B coach Brandon Creason said. “I don’t know what it is. They always drill us one of the two.” That could bode well for the next meeting, but the Rockets have a lot to take care of between now and then.

Wootton hopeful after hip surgery Recovery likely to take 4-6 months By ADAM L. JAHNS ajahns@suntimes.com

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning calls an audible at the line of scrimmage against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday in Denver. Manning used the code word “Omaha” on 44 plays as he barked signals.

DENVER BRONCOS

GO, OMAHA! Manning gives Nebraska city game shoutouts By ERIC OLSON The Associated Press OMAHA, Neb. – Peyton Manning can’t stop shouting about Nebraska’s largest city. The Denver Broncos’ quarterback used the word “Omaha” loudly and often during Sunday’s NFL playoff victory over the San Diego Chargers. According to an NFL.com video montage, Manning barked “Omaha” before the ball was snapped 44 times during the game. The reason for the word choice, if there is one, is known only to Manning and the Broncos. But it provided some unexpected publicity for the city of 427,000, perhaps best known as the home of both billionaire Warren Buffett and the Fortune 500 insurance company Mutual of Omaha (sponsor of the old TV show “Wild Kingdom”). Omaha, in fact, was a trending topic on Twitter during the game, and the Greater Omaha Convention and Visitors Bureau jumped aboard, tweeting: “We certainly appreciate all the love from Peyton Manning :)” Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce President and CEO David Brown said he was watching the game, and he wondered how his agency could capitalize. Brown said he wants to explore the possibility of hiring Manning, one of the sporting world’s top pitchmen, to shoot a promotional ad for Omaha. “We’d be foolish not to,” Brown said, adding that he realizes Manning would command a fee that likely exceeds his agency’s budget. If anything, Omaha once conjured

“Everybody in Omaha really needs to root for Peyton [Manning] to take down Tom Brady and the Patriots so we can hear ‘Omaha’ in the Super Bowl.” Doug Parrott Executive for Nebraska-based Bailey Lauerman public relations and advertising irm

an image of a cow town on the banks of the Missouri River. But Doug Parrott, executive vice president for the Nebraska-based Bailey Lauerman public relations and advertising firm, said that has changed over the years because of the prominence of Buffett and national media coverage of events such as the College World Series and U.S. Olympic Swim Trials. Brown said the chamber of commerce has worked hard to woo corporations to locate to “the Big O,” as locals call it. Omaha is home to five Fortune 500 companies, including Union Pacific Railroad, and sells itself on, among other things, a reasonable cost of living and dependable workforce. A chamber-commissioned study last year found that 100 million people had been exposed to the “Omaha message” in the past decade and that the city is generally viewed positively,” Brown said.. “But when people are asked why they feel that way, they can’t bring it to a single message,” he said. Quarterback Tom Brady of the New

England Patriots has been known to say “Omaha” during games and so has Peyton’s brother, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning. “Sally,” ‘’Alpha,” and “Kentucky” are among the many words that amount to gibberish to the typical fan, and sometimes they truly mean nothing. But the words often are a signal to the rest of the offense to change a play or scheme – and defenses sometimes try to crack the code. It was apparent that the Chargers associated “Omaha” with Manning’s snap count Sunday because he lured five different San Diego players to jump offsides, an unusually high number of penalties for the same infraction. For the city of Omaha, the value of Manning’s shout-outs is impossible to calculate, Parrott said. Parrott noted, however, that air time for a 30-second Super Bowl ad is $4 million this year. If Manning leads the Broncos to the Super Bowl and yells “Omaha” as many times as he did Sunday, well, that’s lots of free exposure for this old cow town. “Commercials cost money to make, and you have to come up with the idea and hire a production company to make it. It could cost $4 million just for the production, and we get it for free,” Parrott said. “Everybody in Omaha really needs to root for Peyton to take down Tom Brady and the Patriots so we can hear ‘Omaha’ in the Super Bowl.” • AP pro football writer Arnie Stapleton in Denver and AP sports writer Mike Marot in Indianapolis contributed to this report.

SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS

Gearing up for tough return trip to Seattle By JANIE McCAULEY The Associated Press SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers have conquered the bitter cold of Green Bay and the travails of a cross-country flight to Carolina. Now they face their toughest test yet to get back to the Super Bowl: the deafening noise of Seattle’s 12th man home crowd and that swarming Seahawks defense that thoroughly shut down the reigning NFC champion Niners in Week 2. “Our team has been in a lot of good primers, been through a lot of situations, been through tough environments, whether it be weather or opposing stadiums,” coach Jim Harbaugh said Monday. “This team has been in a lot of situations. Been everywhere, man. Just like something from a Johnny Cash song, ‘We’ve been everywhere man.’ ” In what has emerged as arguably the NFL’s best rivalry, San Francisco is on an impressive roll riding an eightgame winning streak as it returns to the Pacific Northwest for Sunday’s NFC title game – the 49ers’ third in as many years. It’s the trip everyone has envisioned for months now

AP photo

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin makes a catch against Carolina Panthers cornerback Drayton Florence on Sunday in Charlotte, N.C. since it became clear Seattle would win the NFC West and secure the No. 1 seed. “Long story short: They know us, we know them,” linebacker NaVorro Bowman said. “We got to go there. We all know the history. But this is the Super Bowl. Everything is on the line. That says it all. We’re ready. That’s all it comes down to.” The 49ers (14-4) have committed seven turnovers and been outscored 71-16 in their past two trips to Seattle, including an embarrassing 29-3 defeat in September. The memory of those visits

stings. Yet a lot has changed in four months since San Francisco last traveled about 800 miles up the Pacific Coast to face its archrival, such as the 49ers’ 19-17 victory against the Seahawks last month at Candlestick Park. That game showed this team it can go back to Seattle this time and leave with a different result even if it thunders and rains all afternoon. “Oh, man, this is everything. We’ve worked hard,” linebacker Ahmad Brooks said. “Now we need to capitalize on what we’ve been doing

all year.” Be prepared from some high-octane trash talking from both sides – and even from that raucous, tremor-causing home crowd. Seattle’s secondary loves to chirp, and 49ers wideout Anquan Boldin has been talking after the play at any chance in recent weeks. “It’s playoff football. It gets chippy between two great teams,” right guard Alex Boone said. “I wouldn’t expect anything less.” Kaepernick improved to 4-1 in the postseason – 3-0 on the road – with Sunday’s 23-10 victory at Carolina, while Harbaugh became the first coach since the NFL’s 1970 merger to lead his team to the NFC title game in each of his first three years. Kaepernick will look to bounce back from a forgettable September performance at CenturyLink Field. San Francisco lost two fumbles and Kaepernick threw three interceptions in Week 2. On Dec. 23, 2012, a 42-13 Seattle home win, Kaepernick had an interception and the Niners lost a fumble. “We’re a different team than we were the first time we played them up there,” Kaepernick said. “We have a lot of key playmakers back and we’re ready to go.”

Saying it will “help make me better at everything,” Bears defensive lineman Corey Wootton had arthroscopic surgery Jan. 7 to repair a nagging hip injury. But Wootton, whose contract with the Bears expires, won’t be 100 percent by the time free agency starts March 11. He told the Sun-Times on Monday night Corey that his recov- Wootton ery time will take four to six months. That said, Wootton has started his rehabilitation and said he feels good after surgery. “I just know that this is going to help make me better at everything,” said Wootton, who is expected to have considerable interest from other teams in free agency. Wootton had his hip labrum – the cartilage ring that holds the ball-and-socket joint together as a shock absorber – repaired. He also had a terminal femoroacetabular impingement – which occurs when hip bones are abnormally shaped – decompressed in a procedure performed by Dr. Benjamin Domb of Adventist Hinsdale Hospital. Wootton felt pain during the 2012 season and “didn’t re-

ally think anything of it,” but aggravated his hip this past training camp. “Since then it’s been really nagging,” Wootton said. “I knew then that surgery definitely had to be done.” Wootton still managed to be one of the unsung heroes of the Bears defense this season, admirably handling a switch from his natural defensive end to tackle because of all the injuries up front. He finished with 3½ sacks. “I know it did [hinder me],” he said. “I’m not gonna make excuses or anything, but it was good to get it out.” The Bears are interested in Wootton’s return, even if the team decides to switch to a 3-4 defense or use a hybrid. The team’s scheme is unsettled, although coordinator Mel Tucker will return next year. In his end-of-season review, general manager Phil Emery said Wootton “would transcend scheme” regardless of the Bears’ direction. “I was in a 3-4 – a pure, straight 3-4 defense – in Kansas City and he could have been the right end,” Emery said. “If he put a little weight on, he could be the left end. He played under-tackle for us [this past season]. “Corey was most disruptive as a pass rusher, between the D-end and D-tackle, at D-tackle this year. Now in the past, obviously he had a pretty good year a year ago [at defensive end].”

NFL NOTES

Whisenhunt takes over at Tennessee By TERESA M. WALKER The Associated Press NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Titans have wrapped up their coaching search by hiring San Diego offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt as their new head coach and 17th in franchise history. Titans president and CEO Tommy Smith called the hiring a big day in announcing it Monday. “Ken is a Ken well-respected Whisenhunt coach in this league, and I am looking forward to seeing his vision become reality for this team,” Smith said in a statement. “He has a history of building successful offenses and took Arizona to a Super Bowl as a head coach. We all share a common goal for this team and that is to build a consistent winner.” Whisenhunt, 51, will be introduced Tuesday at a news conference. The Titans flew to San Diego on Friday and interviewed Whisenhunt, who started his coaching career in Nashville at Vanderbilt. He was the fourth person interviewed by the Titans, who fired Mike Munchak on Jan. 4. But the Titans had competition for Whisenhunt, who also interviewed with Detroit and Cleveland last week. The Tennessean reported the Titans interviewed Cincinnati defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer for a second time Monday in Houston before hiring Whisenhunt. Whisenhunt spent six years coaching Arizona and took the Cardinals to their lone Super Bowl in 2009. He was fired Dec. 31, 2012, with a record of 45-51 in the regular season and 4-2 in the playoffs.

Zimmer has 2nd interview with Vikings: At Minneapolis, the Minnesota Vikings have moved into the home stretch of their search for a head coach and Cincinnati defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer has emerged as a favorite.

John Wooten, the executive director of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, said in a phone interview Monday that Vikings general manager Rick Spielman told him last week the team’s plan was to contact finalists for the job by Tuesday. According to an NFL Network report Saturday, Zimmer was scheduled to travel to Minnesota on Monday and meet with Vikings officials for a second interview Tuesday. The alliance, based in Washington, is designed to promote candidate development for coaching, front office and scouting jobs in the NFL. The FPA’s strategic efforts include advocacy for and marketing of the hiring and promotion of minorities among NFL teams, and one of Wooten’s protégées is Arizona defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, another strong candidate for Minnesota. Bowles spoke with Spielman in Arizona last week, and Wooten said Spielman told him the interview went well. “He was thoroughly, thoroughly impressed. That’s the way I would describe it,” Wooten said. Another candidate working with Wooten is former Indianapolis coach and current Baltimore offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell, who has previously interviewed with the Lions. Broncos lose CB Harris: At Englewood, Colo., Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris Jr. is out for the rest of the playoffs after an MRI on Monday revealed a torn ACL in his left knee. Harris was injured in the third quarter of Denver’s 2417 win over San Diego in the AFC Divisional round Sunday. After he went out, Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers staged a comeback from a 17-point deficit largely by targeting Harris’ rusty replacement, veteran Quentin Jammer. It fell short, however, when Peyton Manning was able to keep Rivers on the sideline over the final 3 minutes, 51 seconds by converting a trio of third downs.

A-Rod sues MLB, union to overturn ban Yankees infielder accused of using 3 banned substances The ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK – Alex Rodriguez sued Major League Baseball and its players’ union Monday, seeking to overturn a season-long suspension imposed by an arbitrator who ruled there was “clear and convincing evidence” he used three banned substances and twice tried to obstruct the sport’s drug investigation. As part of the lawsuit filed in federal court in Manhattan, the New York Yankees third baseman made public Saturday’s 33-page decision by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz, who shortened a penalty originally set at 211 games in August by baseball commissioner Bud Selig for violations of the sport’s drug agreement and labor contract. Horowitz, who technically chaired a three-man panel that included a representative of MLB and the union, trimmed the penalty to 162 games, plus all postseason games in 2014. “While this length of suspension may be unprecedent-

ed for a MLB player, so is the misconduct he committed,” Horowitz wrote. Rodriguez in his suit claimed the Major League Baseball Players Association “completely abdicated its responsibility to Mr. Rodriguez to protect his rights” and “this inaction by MLBPA created a climate in which MLB felt free to trample” on Rodriguez’s confidentiality rights. Rodriguez asked for the court to find MLB violated its agreements with the union, that the union breached its duty to represent him and to throw out Horowitz’s decision. The three-time AL MVP five years ago admitted using performance-enhancing drugs while with Texas from 2001-03 but has denied using them since. MLB’s investigation of Biogenesis of America, a Florida anti-aging clinic, was sparked after the publication of documents last January by Miami New Times. Anthony Bosch, the clinic’s head, agreed in June to

Alex Rodriguez sued Major League Baseball and the players’ union Monday, seeking to overturn a season-long suspension imposed by an arbitrator who ruled there was “clear and convincing evidence” he used three banned substances and twice tried to obstruct the sport’s drug investigation. cooperate with MLB’s investigation, and Rodriguez’s lawyers attacked his credibility because of that agreement, which included reimbursement for the costs of lawyers and security. “The benefits accorded to Bosch under that arrangement did not involve inducements that the panel considers to be improper,” Horowitz wrote.

Horowitz concluded Rodriguez used testosterone, human growth hormone and Insulin-like growth factor-1 in 2010, 2011 and 2012 in violation of baseball’s Joint Drug Agreement. “Direct evidence of those violations was supplied by the testimony of Anthony Bosch and corroborated with excerpts from Bosch’s personal composition notebooks, BBMs

(Blackberry messages) exchanged between Bosch and Rodriguez, and reasonable inferences drawn from the entire record of evidence,” Horowitz wrote. Horowitz said Rodriguez was introduced to Bosch by A-Rod cousin Yuri Sucart, who knew Bosch through Jorge “Oggi” Velazquez. “Contrary to the claim of Rodriguez, the challenges lodged to the credibility of Bosch’s testimony do not effectively refute or undermine the findings of JDA violations,” the arbitrator wrote. Horowitz concluded MLB was justified in citing violations of the collective bargaining agreement because Rodriguez “played an active role in inducing Bosch to issue his own public denial on Jan. 29” and “attempted to induce Bosch to sign a sworn statement on May 31” saying he never supplied the player. Rodriguez did not testify in the grievance, walking out after Horowitz refused to order Selig to testify. In determining the length of the penalty, Horowitz cited a 2008 decision in a grievance involving Neifi Perez in which arbitrator Shyam Das ruled “separate uses are sub-

ject to separate disciplines.” He said under the discipline system for positive tests, Rodriguez would be subject to at least 150 games for three violations of 50 games. But Horowitz thought Selig’s initial penalty was too severe. “A suspension of one season satisfies the structures of just cause as commensurate with the severity of his violations,” he wrote. Horowitz rejected Rodriguez’s argument that the lack of a positive test was proof of innocence. “It is recognized Rodriguez passed 11 drug tests administered by MLB from 2010 through 2012. The assertion that Rodriguez would have failed those tests had he consumed those PES as alleged is not persuasive. As advanced as MLB’s program has become, no drug-testing program will catch every player,” Horowitz wrote. In Selig’s notice of discipline to Rodriguez on Aug. 5, he said MLB actively is investigating allegations he received banned substances in 2009 from Dr. Anthony Galea, who pleaded guilty in 2011 to a federal charge of bringing unapproved drugs into the United States from Canada.

WHITE SOX

Viciedo agrees to 1-year deal; De Aza, Beckham still unsigned center to left. “The combination of De Aza [a left-handed hitter] and Viciedo [a right-handed hitter] in left and Eaton in center is going to make us stronger defensively, which was a problem last year,” Hahn said. “If we decide our best team is going with all three of those guys on the roster, [manager] Robin [Ventura] and I have already talked about different ways to make that work and get the most out of that from a matchup standpoint.”

By DARYL VAN SCHOUWEN dvanschouwen@suntimes.com The White Sox and left fielder Dayan Viciedo avoided salary arbitration by agreeing to terms on a one-year, $2.8 million contract. How Viciedo’s role this season might change after the Sox acquired center fielder Adam Eaton from the Arizona Diamondbacks is unclear. When the Eaton deal was made, general manager Rick Hahn said Alejandro De Aza would move from

The Sox still would like to acquire a catcher, and De Aza and Viciedo would be among Hahn’s trade chips. But Viciedo is only 24 and still has considerable upside, so the Sox might not be eager to part with Dayan him. Viciedo “He has the ability to be an impact player as an every-day player,” Hahn said. “I don’t think he is limited to

being a platoon-type player.” Viciedo, who was on the disabled list from April 19 to May 10 with a strained muscle on his left side, hit well when he took a little something off his swing after coming off the DL. “He went through stretches where he looked as good as anybody,” Ventura said. “And he also swings as hard as anybody. When he got hurt, I think some of it helped him because he couldn’t swing as hard as he had before. He has the

tools to do it. We just want it – I think everybody just wants it – now.” Viciedo struggled at times in left field, especially getting to balls near the wall, but he can throw. The Kansas City Royals’ Alex Gordon, 34, is the only American League player with more outfield assists than Viciedo, 25, in the past two seasons. The agreement with Viciedo leaves De Aza and second baseman Gordon Beckham as the only two arbitration-eligible players who have not come to terms with the team.

A big decision for Young Invincibles: To get health coverage or not

HEALTH WATCH

Photo provided

Winter running For beginners and beyond, winter running can be a daunting task. Kimberly Daly, a healthy lifestyle expert who offers comprehensive health coaching based in San Jose, Calif., gives advice on getting a head start on one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions. Don’t expect to be a “natural:” It takes practice for your body to build up enough endurance to run – your leg muscles, heart and lungs all have to get stronger, so be prepared to run-walk around the neighborhood for a while. Begin by running for one minute and walking for two, for 15 to 30 minutes every other day. After a couple of weeks, switch it up so you’re running for two minutes and walking for one. Prepare for the weather: When temps dip below 50 degrees, you’ll want to wear long sleeves and pants made from tech fibers that wick sweat away from your body. In the 40s, add a wind-resistant jacket, gloves and a hat. Freezing temps demand even more skin-protecting layers. Running tights are a great idea, as are thermal base layers made of wool, because the fibers pull moisture away from the skin while insulating against the cold. Remember your face: Lips and exposed skin chap easily in cold weather. Apply a face balm with sunscreen and carry chapstick. Beware the air: Cold air can irritate the lungs, so if you have asthma or other breathing-related issues, you might want to stay indoors or wear a neck buff pulled up over your mouth – this helps to heat the air before it enters your body. Don’t risk some elements: Running on icy roads all but guarantees a nasty slip and fall, and lightning is an absolute no-go.

Balancing action By JAY HANCOCK Kaiser Health News

L

izzie Bunnen’s medical insurance ran out in the fall. She had every intention of buying new, subsidized coverage under the health law in October. “Then, obviously, I heard all the coverage about how terrible the website was,” said Bunnen, 26, a George Washington University grad student who lives in Virginia. “And I said, OK I’ll wait. And I kept waiting. And November came around and the website was still terrible. And I was going to do it over Thanksgiving.” But she didn’t. The success of the Affordable Care Act’s online marketplaces may depend on people like Lizzie Bunnen. If healthy adults her age don’t sign up, the risk is predominantly older and sicker members will drive up costs and threaten the portals’ future. With the March deadline approaching for all 2014 enrollment, the clock is ticking on what many believe is one of the health law’s biggest challenges. As a result, ACA backers have stepped up efforts to persuade Bunnen and others ages 18 to their mid-30s to give Obamacare a second chance on newly improved websites such as healthcare.gov. “Remind your friends and your peers – imagine what happens if you get sick, what happens with the massive bills” if there’s no health insurance, President Obama told a group of young people at the White House in December.

Callouts The president called on radio hosts and bartenders to publicize “Obamacare.” First lady Michelle Obama wanted families to talk to loved ones “about what health care reform can mean to them” over the holidays. Young Invincibles, a health care consumer group, wanted young adults to ask for Obamacare for a holiday gift. The Colorado Consumer Health Initiative invokes pregnancy, bike crashes, ski injuries and handstands on beer kegs as reasons for young adults to buy coverage. Health law supporters also lined up Adam Levine – Maroon 5 frontman and People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive – to urge young folks to get insured. Still, a poll released Dec. 4 by Harvard University’s Institute of Politics suggested the

“I personally haven’t been on Covered California. As I’m listening to the news they’re saying, whoa, the online thing isn’t working. If you enter your personal information, it might be stolen. I’m thinking I’m just going to wait.” Jasun Boles, 32, construction worker

recruitment challenge is substantial. More than half of the uninsured young adults who responded disapproved of the Affordable Care Act. Only 20 percent said they would “definitely” or “probably” sign up. “I personally haven’t been on Covered California,” that state’s website for enrolling in the new coverage, said Jasun Boles, 32, a California construction worker. “As I’m listening to the news they’re saying, whoa, the online thing isn’t working. If you enter your personal information, it might be stolen. I’m thinking I’m just going to wait.”

Uncertainty in numbers Few numbers have been published on enrollees’ ages so far. California has said 21 percent of those who signed up through early December are between the ages of 18 and 34, while Kentucky reports about 20 percent of those buying plans through late November are in the same category. “It’s still a little bit too early to tell” how the balance will turn out, said Peter Cunningham, a senior fellow at the nonprofit Center for Studying Health System Change. “The California experience is probably better than what a lot of people expected and maybe as good as we can expect” in the first year. If total signups meet expectations across the country, the White House figures nearly 40 percent of enrollees will be in that category. But the Department of Health and Human Services hasn’t published age breakdowns for enrollees in healthcare.gov, the troubled online marketplace it is running for 36 states. Even though older subscribers pay substantially more in premiums and the health law contains “reinsurance” and other safety

valves for plans that lose money in the early years, some believe disproportionate enrollment of older and sicker people could drive up premiums and threaten the policies’ long-term stability. While enrollment will probably rise with a better functioning site, “at this juncture it seems unlikely that the administration will meet its goals for young adult enrollment,” said Conor Ryan, a health data analyst with the American Action Forum, a right-leaning think tank.

Waiting game New York singer and actress Gabrielle Sterbenz waited until finishing a tour of Britain and Ireland in October to enroll recently on New York’s insurance portal to replace what she called “minimal” coverage now. After subsidies, she’s paying $60 a month for a medium-level silver plan, she said. “The New York site is great,” said Sterbenz, 36. “I’m getting full coverage. I found a plan that my voice doctor is on and my regular primary care [doctor] and my ob-gyn – and I’m paying less,” thanks to the health law’s tax credits. “I know actors and musicians who have been looking forward to Obamacare kicking in.” New York’s online exchange has been praised along with California’s and Kentucky’s as working relatively well. As the federal portal and other troubled sites such as Maryland’s improve, the portion of younger, healthier applicants should grow, suggested Timothy Jost, a law professor and health policy specialist at Washington and Lee University. “It seems to me that a person who really needs health insurance will spend a day trying to enroll,” Web problems or not, Jost said. “A healthy person will probably wait until he or she can enroll in 20 minutes.” Travis Hoium, 31, a contract writer for The Motley Fool financial site was able to sign up on MNsure, Minnesota’s troubled portal. “The signup was pretty painless,” he said. “I wouldn’t say that it was anything harder than signing up for anything similar online.” Ineligible for subsidies, he enrolled in a high-benefit gold plan for $165 a month, he said. Even perfect software was unlikely to persuade Kerry Haack, 31, a homemaker in Lewisville, Idaho, to enroll in a plan created by the health law. “The government’s role is not to tell people that they need to buy health insurance,” she said. “It’s a wrongheaded law, and I’m opposed to [Idaho] implementing it.”

Make those healthy 2014 resolutions permanent It’s time for my annual discourse concerning some changes you can make to enjoy a healthier, happier and more productive life. These are not resolutions but suggestions about reevaluating how you live your life and areas in which you should make some changes. First of all, look at the big picture and don’t let the daily, petty annoyances wear you down. In the larger scheme of life, these irritations and aggravations are really not that important nor do they significantly affect your life. Don’t wait until tomorrow to do what brings you pleasure. Stop placing unneces-

VIEWS Dr. Murray Feingold sary barriers or obstacles that prevent you from taking part in something you enjoy. It can be something as simple as taking the time to meet with an old friend or going on the fantasy trip you have been putting off for years. The next suggestion is not difficult to accomplish – all you have to do is think about it – appreciate and celebrate the good times when they happen. Don’t take them for granted. And don’t dwell on

the bad times. You can learn from them, but then move on. The next recommendation should always be part of our lives, but it is sometimes forgotten when we get caught up with too many of our own concerns and problems. Be nicer to people. Be a more caring and giving person. Be concerned about the welfare of others. Be more tolerant and understanding of the weaknesses of others. Be more charitable. The next suggestion concerns your family and friends. They are what is really important in your life. Spend more time with them. You should never be

too busy that you can’t just call and see how they are doing. And don’t wait until it is too late. Now, about your health. If you are in good health, appreciate it and realize what a great gift it is and how fortunate you are. There are those who are in constant pain or are afflicted with a serious disease who would do almost anything to be in your state of good health. Do things to improve your health such as eating better, exercising more and practicing preventative medicine. I realize none of the above suggestions are “earthshattering” revelations or

novel, but there is a difference between knowing them and doing them. How many of them do you actually do? Remember, life is too short. Place this article in a prominent place in your home so it can serve as a reminder of the many things you can do each day to make your life more fulfilling, rewarding, happier and healthier.

STYLE Fitness norms are guides, not gospel Page D2 • Tuesday, January 14, 2014

By LENNY BERNSTEIN The Washington Post How am I doing? That’s a natural question when it comes to health and fitness, especially for men and especially as we age. You want to know whether all your hard work is paying off, or how far you have to go to catch up. And if you’re just starting to work out, you’re interested in how much effort you need to invest to improve and maintain your health. Experts say there are reliable norms, advice that is solidly based on research and testing, but they recommend you use the information with caution. “Age and gender-predicted standards always give you a template to work toward. It lets you know where you are in terms of your fitness level,” said Jonathan Myers, a clinical professor of medicine at Stanford University and a health research scientist at the Veterans Administration Palo Alto Health Care System. “The ‘but’ is that you benefit from exercise without getting too caught up in where you are relative to a standard, without getting too compulsive about measuring your heart rate.” If there’s one measure you should pay attention to as you get older, it’s your cardiovascular fitness. Here’s why: Numerous studies have proved it is the single best predictor of mortality from any cause, not just diseases of the heart, lungs and circulatory system. Cardiovascular fitness also improves quality of life – think fatigue, back pain or the inability to climb stairs or do yard work. Best of all, most of the benefits come when you switch from little or no exercise to a regular program. Or, as health experts put it, when you move out of the bottom two quintiles and into the middle. At the Cooper Clinic in Dallas, doctors have been collecting data from tens of thousands of patients they have pushed to exhaustion in treadmill tests since 1970, producing one of the largest databases of cardiovascular information in the United States. “We found that just 30 minutes of cardiovascular activity three to five times a week decreases chances of

PlanitNorthwest/PlanitNorthwest.com

dying from any cause at all by 58 percent and increases longevity by six years,” said Tyler Cooper, chief executive officer of Cooper Aerobics Enterprises. Just moving from “poor” or “very poor” to “fair” on the Cooper scale conveyed most of that benefit, he said. In fact, cardiovascular fitness is such a reliable predictor of good health that in January, the American Heart Association proposed creation of a national registry of cardiorespiratory fitness data to establish norms and help physicians use them in treating diseases associated with obesity and sedentary lifestyle. A project to compile that information has been launched in a dozen health centers across the country, and the Heart Association hopes to expand it. “Although [cardiorespiratory fitness] is recognized as an important marker of both functional ability and cardiovascular health, it is currently the only major risk factor that is not routinely and regularly assessed in either the general or specialized clinical setting,” the Heart Association wrote in its policy statement in the journal Circulation. Still, there are caveats. Normal heart rates can vary by as much as 20 beats a minute, and sometimes people grow overly concerned when their statistics don’t mirror the norm. “ ‘Normal’ has great variability – even maximal heart rate can be as much as +/- 20 bpm from prediction equations,” Benjamin D. Levine, a professor of medicine, cardiology and exercise science at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, wrote in an email. “The problem is when people deviate from ‘norms,’ they get worried.” Some fitness activities defy efforts to define what is normal. Experts agree strength training is essential to ward off the about 1 percent annual loss of muscle mass that happens after age 50 and that flexibility and balance exercises are nearly as important. But it’s not easy to offer advice that is applicable to a widespread population. “It is difficult to set agerelated norms for muscle strength because there are so many variables,” said Rosemary Lindle of Profes-

sional Fitness Consultants in Bowie, Md. Those include genetics and body size. Some people may have strong upper bodies but weaker lower bodies. “What a 55-year-old should be able to do in terms of pushing a weight ... is going to depend on so many other factors,” Myers said, “whereas anyone can get on a

treadmill” and take roughly the same exam. And some tests may not be right for everyone, especially the elderly. “Not all these tests would be appropriate for every single individual,” said Jacque Ratliff, an exercise physiologist for the American Council on Exercise. “Not everybody is going to be able to run 1.5 miles.”

The American College of Sports Medicine offers modified fitness tests for older people, including a sit-andreach flexibility check that is done on a chair rather than on the floor, according to Barbara Bushman, a professor in the kinesiology department at Missouri State University. The takeaway, experts

said, is to measure yourself against norms where appropriate, consult trainers or other professionals to help gauge your progress, but keep up a regular exercise program at all costs, especially as you grow older. “Exercise is the best medicine there is,” Cooper said. “It has an effect on everything in a positive way.”

Grandmother deserves to know Light therapy helps overcome her secret great-granddaughter seasonal affective disorder

Dear Abby: My family has been keeping a secret from my grandmother. I have a 17-month-old daughter she doesn’t know exists. I wanted to tell my grandma from the start about her great-granddaughter (her first), but I am afraid to. My family thinks telling her will cause too much stress on her. NO one in the family takes my feelings into consideration. I think my grandmother should know she’s a greatgrandma. The problem is, I don’t know how to tell her. She’s 90 years old. I’m afraid if I say something now, it really MIGHT be too stressful for her. Also, I’m afraid if I reveal this secret, it will start a family feud. I want a relationship with my grandma like I used to have. I cry every time I talk to her on the phone because I have to lie to her about my day-to-day life and why I can’t come to see her. I am really starting to resent my family. Please help. – Secret Mommy In Nevada Dear Secret Mommy: Your grandmother wasn’t born yesterday; she’s 90. I’m sure in her decades of living she has seen plenty of life. While she will probably be shocked she was kept in the dark this long, I agree she should know the truth. She also should know you

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips love her, which is why you are telling her the news. She may or may not want to see her great-grandchild, but the choice should be hers. Dear Abby: I’m in my 70s, married for 50 years. I worked outside the home for many years and earned retirement benefits. There have been many ups and downs in my life, for me personally as well as for members of my family. Of course, there have been good times, too. I feel blessed. All my life I have been the “go-to girl” for my family as a daughter, sister, wife, mother and aunt for help or advice. I love them, but I’m tired. How do I retire my “crown” – which has been overwhelming at times – without hurting or alienating anyone? There seem to be so many problems and only one of me. Many times I have felt stretched too thin, but now my health and energy are no longer what they once were. I’m reasonably healthy, but I’m very tired. I value my Judeo-Christian belief of “doing unto others.” Am I being selfish? –

Go-To Girl In New Mexico

Dear Go-To Girl: Your mind and body are trying to tell you something important. I hope you will pay attention before your health suffers because it could if you don’t start drawing the line. There is nothing selfish or wrong about saying: “I love you, but I can’t help you. I can’t because I’m at a point in my life where I can’t handle stress like I used to.” And if the person doesn’t get it, you should repeat it. Dear Abby: I have a dear friend who I have been friends with for years. However, there is one thing I can’t stand about her. It’s her vulgar language. Every sentence that comes out of her mouth includes the F-word. She’s not a soft-spoken individual, so others can hear her. It embarrasses me and makes me not want to be around her in public. How can I tell her she embarrasses me when she talks that way? – Soft-Spoken

Friend Dear Friend: Tell her in exactly the way you told me. It is kind, helpful and the truth. And please don’t feel bad about doing so because you’ll be doing your friend a favor.

Dear Dr. K: I have seasonal affective disorder, so I dread the approach of winter. What can I do? Dear Reader: Here in Boston, it can get dark before 4:30 in the afternoon. For some people, the shorter days this time of year bring on seasonal affective disorder (SAD), also known as winter depression. People with SAD tend to develop symptoms every year. They start gradually in late autumn and build up during the winter months. For many, relief may not come until the longer days of spring. Like other forms of depression, SAD produces sadness, lethargy and fatigue, loss of interest in people and activities, impaired concentration and irritability. SAD also leads to oversleeping and overeating. (Most other forms of depression produce insomnia and weight loss.) Only one drug, bupropion (Wellbutrin), is approved for SAD. But selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and other antidepressants also are effective. Another treatment, known as light therapy, is at least as effective for treating SAD as antidepressants. Light therapy involves sitting close to a

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff fluorescent light box for 30 minutes each day. The light is much more intense than the light produced by an ordinary light bulb. Proper light boxes provide 10,000 lux. (The “lux” is a measure of light intensity. By way of comparison, indoor light is about 100 lux. A bright sunny day is 50,000 lux or more.) Bright white light acts on cells in the eye’s retina. The retina connects to a part of the brain that helps control circadian rhythms of sleep and wakefulness. Scientists believe these rhythms may become disrupted in SAD. Light treatment is relatively safe, and side effects are uncommon. Some people become irritable, develop headaches, or their eyes are bothered by the brightness of the light box. Reducing the time of each light box session, or sitting somewhat farther away from the box, often can correct that problem. If light therapy is done in the later part of the day, it can cause insomnia in some people when they go

to bed several hours later. The obvious way of dealing with this problem is moving light therapy to earlier in the day. Some people with SAD also have suffered from bipolar disorder earlier in their lives. There is some evidence light therapy may provoke recurrent attacks of bipolar disorder, particularly the manic (hyperactive) phase of the illness. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not test, approve or regulate light box devices. Before buying a light box, ask which wavelengths it emits to avoid any that may be harmful. For example, blue light may be more effective for SAD than full-spectrum white light. Theoretically, certain wavelengths of blue light might damage the retina. However, I’m not aware of any evidence this occurs with light box therapy. Finally, a healthy lifestyle, including regular exercise, a good diet and a strong social network, is also likely to help you cope with SAD.

How many ive-putts were there on the PGA tour last year? This deal has instructive points for both sides. The auction went as given. Note, in particular, East’s pass. Yes, West might have had a threesuiter with a heart void, and a contract of four spades would have either made or been a cheap save when four hearts doubled was making. But it is the percentage action to pass when balanced. It is usually easier to win four tricks than 10. (Yes, here ive clubs makes, but how would you get there?) West led the spade ace: ive, two, three. What happened after that? Since East’s low card denied the spade queen, West anticipated that South had begun with queen-doubleton. So West could see four probable tricks. However, his partner rated to have one of the minor-suit kings -- but which one? When West cashed the spade king, East made a suitpreference signal. Because he held the diamond king, he dropped his spade eight. (With the club king, East would have followed with his four.) Now West led a low diamond. East won with his king

and shifted to the club jack. The defenders took two tricks there. South, down to eight trumps, ruffed the next play and cashed the heart ace to drop the king and get out for down two. Did you notice South’s error? He should have played his spade queen at trick one. Then it would have been dangerous for West to continue with the spade king, lest South ruff, cash the heart ace, get to dummy with the heart queen, and discard two losers on the spade jack and nine. There were a surprising 11 ive-putts on the PGA tour in 2013.
