Judge gives tenant 7 days to leave ‘Sovereign citizen’ waives jury trial, agrees to vacate McHenry residence By CHELSEA McDOUGALL cmcdougall@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – Rolling a wheelchair backward down a deserted courthouse hallway, Marion Berntsen had bizarre answers to a reporter’s questions. McHenry County Judge Thomas Meyer had just given her

one week to vacate the McHenry home where she’d been living. The 73-year-old Berntsen was fighting tooth and nail her landlord Anja Hertel’s petition to evict her. A jury trial was set for Tuesday, but not before Berntsen first inexplicably waived a jury trial, then agreed to leave the McHenry home.

Cases such as these rarely make it to a jury, Hertel’s lawyer explained. In August 2013, Berntsen responded to a Craigslist ad Hertel placed for a roommate. After a brief meeting, she began renting a room for $500 a month. Not long after Berntsen arrived with a semitrailer full of

boxes, filled Hertel’s refrigerator with rotting meat and her garage with boxes of old food that attracted mice, it was clear their verbal rental agreement wasn’t going to work out. “I feel like the devil has been living in my house and he will finally be removed,” Hertel said after Meyer gave Berntsen until

11:59 p.m. Tuesday to leave the home. “I feel so bad about the next victim. For me, I don’t want there to be another victim.” Berntsen said she had “no idea” where she would live next. She has an extensive history of legal fights with various

Ill. fiscal fix main goal for hopefuls GOP candidates focus on economy By SARA BURNETT The Associated Press

MDC Environmental Services employee Jeff Hasselmann picks up recyclables along his route as snow begins to come down Tuesday in Woodstock. “The winter is tough,” Hasselmann said. “I can handle the heat in the summer, just bring extra water.” Hasselmann said that Jan. 7, during the deep freeze, was the coldest weather he has ever worked in. By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO sdibenedetto@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – During the winter months, Jeff Hasselmann typically heads to work dressed in layers, including a couple of sweatshirts, overalls, rubber boots and a heavy jacket. The layers are necessary when the workday involves driving throughout Woodstock in frigid temperatures with the passenger’s side door open. But the work conditions don’t faze Hasselmann, who is accustomed to Midwestern winters after spending the past 15 years as a

Outdoor workers say elements add extra challenge to workday recycle collector for MDC Environmental Services. “When you add snow and ice, it makes the job that much more harder,” Hasselmann said. “You really have to be alert at all times because your conditions deal with black ice or wet snow that packs down.” During the recent snowfall and arctic cold, many businesses gave

days off or shortened workdays to employees. But for trash collectors, firefighters, policemen, public works employees and mailmen, the winter elements just add another challenge to the job. Hasselmann runs daily collector routes throughout Woodstock in the mornings with a front-loaded truck. The job requires him to exit the vehicle at each stop to ensure

that people’s recyclables are disposed securely into his truck. Driving without the passenger’s side door closed, Hasselmann said he often struggles to keep his hands and feet warm throughout his route. He constantly has to check his mirrors for passing drivers while driving in snowy and icy conditions. Those conditions make it even harder to prevent his truck from sliding and slipping on the road.

VILLAGE PRESIDENT CHARGED WITH DUI

BIG RALLY FOR PR IN WIN OVER McHENRY

Hebron’s village president could face stricter sentencing from a previous cocaine case if he’s convicted of drunken driving in Wisconsin. John G. Jacobson awaits a March 13 court date on charges that include operating a vehicle while intoxicated. Jacobson is on probation as part of a plea deal from the cocaine case.

The McHenry girls basketball team had the lead and control of its game versus Prairie Ridge in the first half, looking to be well on its way to a possible upset, but the Wolves picked up the pace offensively to turn a 10-point halftime deficit into a 49-34 win.

CHICAGO – All four Republican candidates for Illinois governor said fixing the state’s economic woes would be among their top priorities if they win – an issue they’ll be trying to distinguish themselves on in a state that’s home to one of the nation’s highest unemployment rates and a multibillion-dollar backlog of overdue bills. In response to a campaign questionnaire from The Associated Press, the four contenders – state Sens. Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard, state Treasurer Dan Rutherford and Winnetka businessman Bruce Rauner – cited the need to cut spending, lower taxes, get people back to work by creating a more business-friendly climate – and “all of the above.” While offering only a few specifics, the four will no doubt be pressed on the issue in a series of upcoming debates leading up to the March 18 primary. “Jobs. Jobs. And Jobs,” wrote Rutherford, of Chenoa, a former vice president for ServiceMaster Co., in response to an AP question asking for each candidate’s top three priorities if elected. “Illinois government finances are dire and our state is universally considered unfriendly to business. Building an environment that job creators are

GENERAL INFORMATION: 815-459-4040

Perfect weather to enjoy a chilled whine So here we are 15 days into January, and I’m more than done with winter already. Anyone with me? I’ve lived in northern Illinois all my life, so it’s not that I’m a rookie at this bitter cold and relentless snow and freezing rain. Nor am I someone who moved in from somewhere else and is surprised by it all. So please spare me the “If you don’t like it, why don’t you just move?” comments. Save those for when I whine about the heat and humidity come July. Although I’m not alone in that, either. Over the past few years, the nasty weather didn’t seem to start in mid-December and come in wave after wave after wave as it has this year. We’d have a week of nastiness to get through and it would be relatively calm until the next round a few

VIEWS Joan Oliver weeks later. Then we’d wait for the ice storm in April and be in the clear until the following winter. Some years, we hardly touched our snowblowers at all. Then again, there was that blizzard in 2011 that canceled the Groundhog Day festivities on the Woodstock Square. In that storm, our area received between a foot and 2 feet of snow, and the wind gusts reached 60 mph. After their shift that night, our copy editors had trouble walking across Route 31 in the blinding snow just to stay at the Holiday Inn. Their cars couldn’t get out of the parking lot. I worked from home the next day

until the plows finally came down my street. Then there was the blizzard of 1999. Algonquin recorded 14 inches of snow between Jan. 2 and Jan. 4, according to the National Weather Service. Chicago got more than 21 inches. That was followed by bone-chilling temperatures, with many readings below zero. Sound familiar? But the storm around here to which I compare all others is the one that happened Jan. 13-14, 1979. Maybe that’s because I was a child at the time and it meant a series of snow days that kept me and my brother out of school. I remember the 14-foot-high snowdrifts that lined Route 31 in McHenry. And then the 80-below-zero wind chills that followed, which led to even more days off from school.

There was another round of subzero temperatures in February, too. When it was all said and done, the winter of 1978-79 set 13 temperature records, making it the second-coldest winter on record in Chicago. That, my friend, was a brutal winter. So even though we’ve seen significant snowfalls, below-zero temperatures, freezing fog and freezing rain, I guess it could be worse. Wasn’t there a tornado in the area in January 2008? Of course, it would have to warm up significantly to have to worry about that.

Man fatally shot at Fla. theater over texting By TAMARA LUSH The Associated Press WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. – Chad Oulson was described by friends as a man who loved dirt bikes and his baby daughter. Curtis Reeves was a retired Tampa police officer with numerous commendations who liked riding his motorcycle with his wife. The men’s lives collided in a movie theater fight that left Oulson dead and Reeves in jail. Oulson was texting his daughter’s day care, friends said, and Reeves got mad. Authorities said Reeves shot and killed Oulson with a handgun after the men exchanged words.

Your Home and Your Future

“He must have just snapped,” neighbor Joe D’Andrea said of Reeves, describing him as a friendly, “stand-up” guy. “I’m trying to put all of this together.” Reeves’ personnel files from the police department show he led other agencies in gun safety training and received numerous letters of commendation for his leadership. Still, Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said Tuesday: “It didn’t matter what he had done previously in his life. You don’t shoot someone over a texting incident.” During Reeves’ first court appearance Tuesday, Judge Lynn Tepper ordered the

71-year-old held without bond on a second-degree murder charge pending a bond hearing. Pasco County Sheriff’s officials say Reeves initially asked Oulson to stop texting at the theater in Wesley Chapel, a suburb about a half-hour north of downtown Tampa. Sheriff’s Detective Allen Proctor wrote that Reeves spoke to Oulson during the movie previews, then got up and informed the management. When Reeves returned to his seat “additional words were exchanged” and Oulson threw a bag of popcorn at Reeves, the report said. After officers read him his

rights, Reeves told the detective that Oulson struck him in the face with an unknown object, and that’s when he removed a .380 caliber gun from his pants pocket. The report said Reeves fired the gun and struck Oulson once in the chest and that he “was in fear of being attacked.” The sheriff said at a news conference that Reeves’ son – who was off duty from his job as a Tampa officer – was walking into the theater when the shooting happened. Nocco said Reeves briefly struggled with an off-duty deputy but released the weapon. The gun was jammed and unable to fire again.

8STATE BRIEFS Chicago gets 6 months to create gun sales law CHICAGO – The city of Chicago, which has fought for decades to keep guns out of the hands of its residents, now must craft an ordinance within 180 days that will allow gun stores to open there, a federal judge ruled Tuesday. U.S. District Judge Edward E. Chang granted the city’s request for the delay, a small victory for a city that has lost a series of recent legal battles in its efforts to keep guns out. Chicago officials now find themselves in a new era in which the city must welcome businesses that sell guns and residents who legally carry concealed weapons.

Illinois: More counties cleaning up voter rolls SPRINGFIELD – More than a dozen Illinois counties have purged their voter registration rolls to remove the names of people who’ve died or moved away, election regulators said. The Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises Newspapers reported that 17 counties and the city of East St. Louis have fixed problems on their lists of registered voters, according to a report released to members of the Illinois State Board of Elections. County clerks are required to purge voter rolls every two years, but some counties say there isn’t enough money to cover the reviews.

State Sens. Kirk Dillard (center) and Bill Brady (right) listen to state Treasurer Dan Rutherford (left) speak during Tuesday’s Republican gubernatorial candidates’ forum at Plainfield Central High School.

GOP candidates take questions 3 of 4 running on primary ballot visit Plainfield By VIKAAS SHANKER vshanker@shawmedia.com PLAINFIELD – Will County residents got to hear three Republican candidates for Illinois governor explain their stances on job creation, education and issues with the public and private sector Tuesday night at Plainfield Central High School. The discussion, hosted by the Will County Tea Party Alliance and styled as a question and answer session, saw a tame discussion between panelists and candidates Bill Brady, Kirk Dillard and Dan Rutherford.

“We want to educate people on the candidates,” co-organizer and panelist Stephen Balich said. “Right now, people just don’t know who to vote for.” Candidate Bruce Rauner was invited to the forum but declined the invitation. An empty seat on stage signaled his absence. WLS Radio Bruce host Dan Proft Rauner led the discussion, asking rapid-fire questions. A candidate was granted rebuttal time if mentioned by another candidate. Dillard focused his answers on making Illinois a destination economy for people to create jobs, passing a constitutional amendment to withhold salaries for legis-

lators if they don’t pass balanced budgets and reforming Medicaid. He fielded questions about his connections to unions and education reform. “Public sector unions are one thing, but private sector unions are another,” Dillard said, adding he has taken money from engineer unions. “I respect teachers. We’ll see if I have endorsements of teachers unions this time around.” Brady tried to assure conservative voters he was fit to win the election against Gov. Pat Quinn after losing in the last election. “I’ve learned you can’t spend enough time in Cook County,” Brady said, expressing confidence in the same staff that ran his last campaign. “You know what you’re going to get with Bill Brady. I’m the only one who’s

got the base in support.” Rutherford cited his experience as state treasurer and the fact that he is the only candidate who has won a state election while clarifying his giving 19 additional people government salaries. “They’re not salary increases, they’re promotions for people doing exemplary jobs,” Rutherford said. “I promoted from within, I understand good stewardship.” All candidates fielded questions about pensions, education, the public and private sector and taxes. The three also took aim at the absent Rauner, who was the subject of a Chicago SunTimes story Tuesday that revealed his daughter received admission to Walter Payton College Prep before he paid Payton Prep Initiative for Education $250,000.

Budget bill all about election

People wait for water to be cleared in W.Va. CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Downtown businesses and restaurants reopened Tuesday following last week’s chemical spill, but many people waited yet another day for officials to tell them their tap water was safe. So far, about 39 percent of West Virginia American Water’s customers have been allowed to use their water again after a chemical spilled into the Elk River on Thursday, state officials said. More than 200 restaurants have reopened where the ban has been lifted, said Amy Shuler Goodwin, a spokeswoman for Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin, and all hospitals but one had running water by Tuesday. Officials cautioned that even water that was deemed safe may still have a slight licorice-type odor, raising the anxieties of some.

Boeing confirms new 787 battery incident Battery problems resurfaced on Boeing’s 787 on Tuesday, after gas was discovered coming out of a battery on a plane parked in Tokyo. Boeing said the problem on a Japan Airlines 787 was discovered during scheduled maintenance. No passengers were on board. The company said it appears that a single battery cell “vented,” or released gas. The incident comes a year after a fire in a lithium ion battery aboard a Japan Airlines 787 parked at Boston’s Logan International Airport. That was followed nine days later by another battery incident that forced an emergency landing in Japan by an All Nippon Airways 787. Those problems prompted the FAA and other authorities to ground all 787s for more than three months.

Israeli defense chief sparks spat with U.S. JERUSALEM – An Israeli newspaper quoted the defense minister Tuesday as deriding U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry’s Mideast peace efforts as naive and foolhardy, triggering an angry response from Washington and rekindling simmering tensions with Israel’s closest and most important ally. The quotes appeared ahead of another visit by Kerry, who is expected in the region in the coming weeks to deliver his ideas on a framework for peace between Israel and the Palestinians. Kerry has already submitted to Israel a series of proposals for ensuring Israel’s security as part of a future peace deal. In the comments published by the Yediot Ahronot daily, Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon called Kerry “obsessive” and “messianic” and dismissed Kerry’s security plan as worthless.

200 fleeing violence die after boat sinks JUBA, South Sudan – A boat carrying civilians desperately fleeing heavy violence in South Sudan sank while crossing the Nile River, killing some 200 people, a military official said Tuesday, as fighting between rebels and government forces moved closer to the capital. Warfare in the world’s newest state has displaced more than 400,000 people since mid-December, with the front lines constantly shifting as loyalist troops and renegade forces gain and lose territory. South Sudan has a history of ethnic rivalry, and its many tribes have long battled each other in recurring cycles of violence.

Congress hopes to prove worth by November By ANDREW TAYLOR The Associated Press

N.M. boy shoots 2 at school Injured students taken to hospital By RUSSELL CONTRERAS The Associated Press ROSWELL, N.M. – A 12-year-old New Mexico boy drew a shotgun from a band-instrument case and shot and wounded two classmates at his middle school Tuesday morning before a teacher talked him into dropping the weapon and he was taken into custody, officials and witnesses said. A boy was critically injured and a girl was in satisfactory condition following the shooting at Berrendo Middle School in Roswell. Gov. Susana Martinez said the students were in the gym, where they typically hang out before classes start during

cold and inclement weather. The 12-year-old opened fire with the shotgun there at about 8 a.m. However, he was “quickly stopped by one staff member who walked right up to him and asked him to set down the firearm, which he did,” Martinez said at a news conference. Superintendent Tom Burris said the school’s faculty had participated in “active shooter” training, and they responded appropriately Tuesday. “In the 10 seconds that transpired from the time of this thing starting until the teacher had control of the weapon, there was no cowardice,” Burris said. “There was protection for our kids. Everyone acted and did their duties today at Berrendo Middle School.” Officials at University Medical Center in Lubbock,

Texas, said an 11-year-old boy was flown there in critical condition and a 13-yearold girl arrived in serious condition. Her condition was upgraded to satisfactory Tuesday evening. Information from nurses treating the boy indicates he was the shooter’s target, hospital spokesman Eric Finley said. There was some confusion about the boy’s age, but Finley said his parents told the hospital he is 11. The governor said a staff member received very minor injuries but declined medical care because he wanted to stay and help. The suspected shooter, whom police have not named, was transferred to an Albuquerque psychiatric hospital following a hearing Tuesday, according to attorney Robert Gorence, who is representing his family.

WASHINGTON – A chastened Congress is putting aside the crisis-driven budget battles of the past three years, embracing a $1.1 trillion spending bill that restores or smooths the sharpest edges of the automatic cuts imposed as a result of its own dysfunction. The huge election-year legislation preserves the downward trajectory on government spending demanded by Republicans. Yet the bipartisan measure steaming through Congress also preserves President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul and stricter regulation of financial markets – and deflects the most significant attempts by Republicans to rewrite environmental rules and force other changes. Lawmakers hope the compromise will show disgruntled voters before fall’s midterm election that Washington – especially its unpopular Congress – can perform its most basic function of responsibly funding the government. The bravado that prompted tea party Republicans to force a government shutdown in hopes of derailing “Obamacare” is long gone, replaced by an election-year desire to focus attention on the administration’s troubled rollout of the health care law instead of lurching from crisis to crisis. “The average American

looking at this, it looks pretty dysfunctional for the last couple of years,” said Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla. “We need to rack up some achievements here – not just for Republicans but for incumbents in general and for the institution.” There could still be bumps in the road. Congress needs to raise the government’s borrowing cap by the end of February or early March, and it’s unclear how big of a battle that will be. As for the compromise spending bill, the massive measure funds the operations of virtually every federal agency, making cuts and additions reflecting the trade-offs of divided government. While delivering relief from painful budget cuts and caps known as sequestration, it still imposes a 3 percent cut on agency budgets relative to those approved last year before automatic reductions lopped about $60 billion from them. The measure doesn’t contain in-your-face victories for either side. The primary achievement is that there is an agreement in the first place. Last year’s collapse of the budget process was followed by a 16-day government shutdown and another brush with a disastrous default on U.S. debt. After the shutdown and debt crisis last fall, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Senate Budget Committee Chairman Patty Murray, D-Wash., struck an agreement to avoid a repeat of the 5 percent cut applied to domestic agencies last year and to prevent the Pentagon from absorbing about $20 billion in new cuts.

Gov. Christie: ‘We let down the people’ The ASSOCIATED PRESS TRENTON, N.J. – Faced with a widening political scandal that threatens to undermine his second term and a possible 2016 presidential run, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie apologized again Tuesday, saying his administration “let down the people we are entrusted to serve” but that the issue doesn’t define his team or the state. On the eve of his second term, the governor opened his annual State of the State address by touching only briefly on the apparent political payback plot. “The last week has certainly tested this administration,” he said. “Mistakes were clearly made. And as a result, we let down the people we are entrusted to serve. I know our citizens deserve better.” He received tempered applause after he went on, say-

ing, “This administration and this Legislature will not allow the work that needs to be done to improve the people’s lives in Jersey to be delayed.” The traffic scandal broke wide open last week with the release of documents showing Christie aides and appointees Chris orchestrated Christie lane closings that caused massive gridlock on local roads, delayed emergency vehicles and school buses for hours and infuriated commuters. Democrats believe it was retaliation against a Democratic mayor who did not endorse Christie. Turning to policy matters, Christie stuck mostly to universal goals like making communities safer without offering much of a blueprint.

Dozens arrested under law targeting gay groups The ASSOCIATED PRESS LAGOS, Nigeria – First the police targeted the gay men, then tortured them into naming dozens of others who now are being hunted down, human rights activists said Tuesday, warning that such persecution will rise under a new Nigerian law. The men’s alleged crime? Belonging to a gay organization. The punishment? Up to 10 years in jail under the Same-Sex Marriage Prohibition Act, which has elicited international condemnation for criminalizing gay marriage, gay organizations and anyone working with or promoting them. The U.S., Britain and Canada have condemned the

new law. There were varying accounts of how many arrests were made in Nigeria’s Bauchi state, and a local law enforcement official denied that anyone was tortured. Nevertheless, the aggressive police action shows that Africa’s most populous country is attempting to enforce anti-gay measures that are becoming increasingly common throughout the continent. Bauchi has both a Western-style penal code and Shariah, or Islamic law, which is implemented to different degrees in nine of Nigeria’s 36 states. About half of the country’s more than 175 million people are Muslims, the other half Christians.

She accuses landlord of theft in other case • SOVEREIGN Continued from page A1 landlords in Illinois and Wisconsin. As is the case with Hertel, Berntsen has sued previous landlords as a pauper to avoid legal fees but costing the landlords thousands. According to the petition, she obtains her income from Social Security. Hertel’s legal bills are $4,000 and growing. She can’t afford an attorney to represent her on a separate pending lawsuit Berntsen filed against her. Outside the courtroom Tuesday, Berntsen didn’t directly respond to questions about the case. “A good reporter does not ask questions they don’t know the answer to, a good reporter doesn’t expect me to educate [her],” Berntsen said in the empty hallway. Other inquiries, such as how she responds to claims she’s a sovereign citizen, were volleyed with questions of her own. “Are you a God-fearing woman?” she asked, looking up through glasses, an attached visor pushing the curls from her jet-black wig out of her face. “Do you believe in the Ten Commandments?” “Or are you one of the

slaves on the plantation?” The FBI considers sovereign citizens anti-government individuals who don’t believe federal, state and local laws apply to them. Viewed as “extremists,” sovereign citizens create an influx of documents that clog the courts and other government agencies, according to a 2011 report by the FBI. Berntsen represented herself Tuesday, but her court filings are as polished as those prepared by someone with legal training. “She knows enough to be dangerous, and that’s the problem,” said Charmaine Ruckoldt, Hertel’s attorney. Hertel’s legal battle with Berntsen is far from over. In a separate case, the former tenant is seeking $15,000 in damages, alleging that Hertel stole her personal property including love letters from her deceased husband. It doesn’t stop there. Berntsen has a laundry list of items she alleges Hertel took from her. Included among the presumed stolen items are $70 worth of garbanzo beans and other canned goods, toiletries, utensils, 10 boxes of VHS tapes, pillows and blankets and other items totaling $3,396. Hertel denies all those claims. That case is scheduled for a March 6 status date.

DA: Chest where 2 kids died had been recalled FRANKLIN, Mass. – A hope chest where a young Massachusetts brother and sister died after apparently becoming trapped had been recalled by the manufacturer years ago, the district attorney investigating the case said Tuesday. Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey said preliminary autopsy results indicate the deaths of the 8-year-old girl and 7-year-old boy at their Franklin home on Sunday were

Continued from page A6 seeking and putting people back to work will help solve a lot of Illinois’ financial and social ailments.” Those ailments include an unemployment rate of 8.7 percent as of November, the most recent date for which numbers are available. It was the third straight month that the rate dropped, but it was still above the national unemployment of 7 percent for the same month. Meanwhile, a temporary income tax increase approved by Democrats in 2011 is set to be rolled back on Jan. 1, 2015. The Governor’s Office of Management and Budget recently projected a loss of about $2 billion in revenue during the fiscal year that begins July 1 if that rollback occurs. Brady, who has real estate development interests around his hometown of Bloomington, said the long-term solution to Illinois’ problems is to

“create an environment that fosters new investments and new jobs in the private sector.” “That environment includes eliminating needless government regulations, reducing the tax burden and working to further refine our workers compensation and tort systems,” wrote the party’s 2010 nominee. He said his second priority would make the “difficult decisions” to balance the budget without extending the temporary income tax hike. “There is not an area of state government that can’t do more with less,” Brady said. The candidates’ answers didn’t focus solely on the state’s bleak economy. Dillard, a lawyer from Hinsdale, called for reforming the budget and reducing taxes. But he also listed ethics reform in his top three, saying “pay-to-play” politics must end and noting that Illinois’ widely publicized history of corruption also hurts the state’s bottom line.

accidental. He said toxicology tests are still pending. Morrissey said the chest, which had a lid that could only be opened from the outside, was made in 1939 by the Lane Furniture Company of Altavista, Va. In 1996, Lane recalled 12 million cedar chests with lids that automatically latch shut after receiving reports of six children suffocating inside. Morrissey said people who own similar chests, which also were made by other companies, should check them.

Judge strikes down Okla. same-sex marriage ban TULSA, Okla. – A federal judge struck down Oklahoma’s gay marriage ban Tuesday, but headed off any rush to the altar by setting aside his order while state and local officials complete an appeal. It was the second time in a month that a federal judge has set aside a deeply conservative state’s limits on same-sex marriage, after Utah’s ban was reversed in December. In his ruling, U.S. District

Judge Terence Kern described Oklahoma’s ban on same-sex marriage as “an arbitrary, irrational exclusion of just one class of Oklahoma citizens from a governmental benefit.” The decision drew criticism from the governor, attorney general and other officials in this state known as the buckle of the Bible Belt. A state lawmaker who once said gay people posed a greater threat than terrorism blasted rulings from “activist judges.”

Deputy chief: Shifts in harsh weather more stressful • WORKERS Continued from page A1 didn’t hesitate with an answer. “Definitely the summer,” he said. “I’ll take 100 degrees over sliding in the snow and

waiting for a mechanic.” Huntley police on patrols during winter face similar issues, said Deputy Chief Michael Klunk. Police typically deal with increased stress and fatigue when driving throughout Huntley on a 12hour patrol shift in snowy

and icy conditions, he said. Police tasked with clearing an accident or directing traffic for multiple hours usually layer up or bring extra hats, scarfs and sweatshirts to guard against the cold and frostbite. “It’s not so much about

the job. The actual climate at a particular time may just have an impact on the ability to get jobs done quicker,” Klunk said. “It’s just one more thing you need to think about when you are out trying to get whatever needs to be done.”

Saluting the 2013 harvest Final 2013 harvest figures are in from the National Agricultural Statistics Service, and Illinois’ governor was so pleased that he issued a news release Sunday about the results. Gov. Pat Quinn saluted Illinois farmers for leading the nation in soybean production. Illinois is No. 1 by virtue of the 462 million bushels of soybeans that were harvested last fall. Our farmers outdistanced the For the record No. 2 state, Iowa, by 51 million We encourage the governor bushels. and all state leaders, when Quinn also considering laws and regulasingled out Illitions, to keep the needs of nois corn farmers, agriculture firmly in mind. whose 2.1 billion bushels harvested finished second only to Iowa (2.16 billion bushels) as far as total production is concerned. The crop was the third largest in Illinois history. The 2013 crop year followed a drought year, with Illinois’ soybean production up 20 percent and corn production up 63 percent versus 2012. Quinn pointed to last year’s rebound as proof that state farmers are resilient. Bob Flider, state ag department director, said that better weather and intelligent management practices aided the rebound. The governor is correct to pay tribute to Illinois farmers. Their efforts to produce corn, soybeans, sorghum, wheat, oats, hay, potatoes, pumpkins and other crops – not to mention livestock – are crucial to the state’s economy, if not to the continued evolution of civilization itself. After all, without agriculture, people would be have to spend more time finding and producing food themselves. Hunters and gatherers, we’d rather not be. We encourage the governor and all state leaders, when considering laws and regulations, to keep the needs of agriculture firmly in mind. Sometimes it seems as if government bureaucrats don’t know beans about farming. If farmers are to prosper, such attitudes must be countered by informed leaders who set the bureaucrats straight.

Testing Rubio’s claim The way to defeat poverty in America, Republican Sen. Marco Rubio said, is to let the states lead the fight. Here’s how to tell whether he’s serious about that. Rubio’s basic premise, that the federal government has been inefficient at the job, is sound: Despite the impressive success of the anti-poverty programs created 50 years ago – including food stamps, greater Social Security benefits and federal subsidies for poorer school districts – the U.S. still has almost 50 million people living in poverty. The U.S. spends more per resident on social programs than the average for developed countries, but gets worse results. The senator’s proposed solution – replacing federal anti-poverty programs with block grants for states to use as they see fit – has a certain appeal, too. As Rubio, of Florida, puts it, why should we assume that what works in Tallahassee makes sense for Topeka? But there are practical reasons to be wary of giving states unconstrained control over federal anti-poverty money. Few states can match the federal government’s resources to plan, monitor and analyze programs, including investigating their abuse. And if the U.S. government surrenders all control over that money, it’s hard for it to remain accountable to taxpayers for how the dollars are spent. A more fundamental rejoinder to Rubio’s plan is that the nature and causes of poverty don’t vary from state to state nearly as much as the political will to alleviate it does. The best illustration of this is the expansion of Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act: Only half the states have agreed to take new federal money to provide Medicaid for more people. That level of disregard for the vulnerable doesn’t bode well for letting states control more such programs. Obamacare also contains a remedy for this problem, however. The health-care law gives states the chance to disregard its major provisions, including the individual and employer mandates and the new standards for what insurance must cover, while still collecting the same federal money they would get otherwise. To qualify, a state needs to come up with an alternative program that meets the same basic objectives as the law: Cover the same number of people, with the same quality of insurance, at the same cost or lower than Obamacare. The same approach applied more broadly would give states the flexibility that Rubio calls for, while guarding against the risk that the people who need help will be left worse off. As it stands, Rubio’s proposal for blanket state autonomy looks less like a recipe for reducing poverty than a way to abdicate federal responsibility. If the senator is right that state leaders can do a better job, he should give them a chance to prove it. Bloomberg View

Food-stamp restrictions To the Editor: I am writing in response to an article in Friday’s Business section headlined, “Doctors say cutting food stamps could backfire.” The article stated that if Congress cuts food stamps, the government

could see higher health-care bills. I disagree with this. I have been a cashier in a major grocery store for 27 years. During this time, I have checked out hundreds of thousands of customers on food stamps. I can attest to the fact that the majority of these customers do not make healthy food choices. I have seen many of them purchasing highly processed packaged foods that are high in sugar, salt and trans fats – not to mention soda. I have seen them purchasing cake, chips and candy bars using their Link card. So as far as I’m concerned, it is what the people on food stamps are purchasing and consuming that is causing their health to be poor and health care costs to go up, not reducing the food stamps. What these people need is nutrition counseling. There also should be more restrictions on what types of food can be purchased using

Dems see chance to derail Chris Christie A multiple choice question: Select the scandal(s) that affects the most people and has longterm implications for the country in a time of war, a country with a struggling economy that last month produced the weakest job growth in decades. (According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly 92 million Americans are no longer in the labor force.) A) The closing of traffic lanes in Fort Lee, N.J., allegedly in retaliation for the refusal of a Democratic mayor to endorse New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie for a second term. B) The role of the president and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton when the U.S. Mission in Benghazi, Libya, was attacked Sept. 11, 2012, killing Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans and the lies and possible cover-up about alQaida’s involvement. C) The IRS’ refusal to grant nonprofit status to numerous conservative groups during the 2012 election campaign for, allegedly, political reasons. D) President Obama’s

VIEWS Cal Thomas repeated statements assuring Americans that if they like their insurance plans and doctors they may keep them under the new ACA. If you are honest, you would have to select B, C and D, but who among the media are honest enough to do that? Christie held a 107-minute news conference last Thursday, during which he repeatedly denied knowing anything about the lane closures on the George Washington Bridge. He fired Bridget Anne Kelly, his deputy chief of staff, and blocked the appointment of another close associate to a state GOP chairmanship. Left-leaning Democrats and the establishment media see an opening to keep Christie from winning the Republican presidential nomination in 2016 and are salivating because they think

8THE FIRST AMENDMENT

the Fort Lee controversy might harm his chances against Hillary Clinton. One wishes the media would grill President Obama over far more important matters with the same zeal they have applied to Gov. Christie. In light of A, B, C and D above, closing two lanes leading to a bridge is nothing. It does, however, again expose the media’s agenda and their intention to bring down anyone who is a potential threat to a Hillary Clinton presidency. On Monday, CNN reported that Christie is now the subject of a federal investigation into whether he misused $25 million in Superstorm Sandy relief money to fund a marketing campaign to promote tourism at the Jersey Shore. Convenient timing? If wasted federal money is an indictable offense, most of Congress should be behind bars. Colin Reed, a Christie spokesman stated, “The Stronger Than the Storm campaign was just one part of the first action plan approved by the Obama admin-

istration and developed with the goal of effectively communicating that the Jersey Shore was open for business during the first summer after Sandy. Federal agency reviews are routine and standard operating procedure with all federally allocated resources to ensure that funds are distributed fairly. We’re confident that any review will show that the ads were a key part in helping New Jersey get back on its feet after being struck by the worst storm in state history.” End of controversy? Hardly. There may be more important reasons why Christie should not (or should) be the GOP presidential nominee in 2016, but the bridge lane fiasco ought not be a factor. Should Gov. Christie be exposed as a liar about lane closures, would that be more serious than the lies the president has told about far more serious matters? Just asking. • Readers may email Cal Thomas at tcaeditors@tribune. com.

FIREFIGHTER PLACED ON UNPAID LEAVE CARPENTERSVILLE – A part-time firefighter charged with punching a woman in the face multiple times has been on unpaid leave at both departments he works for since the altercation. Jason S. Elders, 39, who was arrested about 12:30 a.m. Dec. 22 in St. Charles Township, has been on unJason S. paid leave from the Elders West Dundee Fire Department and Carpentersville Fire Department since Dec. 24 and Dec. 26, respectively. Elders was making $15.81 an hour at Carpentersville and $13.26 an hour in West Dundee. He faces misdemeanor battery charges in Kane County stemming from the physical altercation with the unnamed woman. Witnesses told police Elders got on top of the 37-year-old woman and punched her in the face several times, Kane County Sheriff’s Lt. Pat Gengler said. According to the police report, family and friends pulled Elders off the woman. The incident is alleged to have occurred in the driveway of a home near where Elders had been attending a Christmas party earlier that night. The woman was transported to Delnor Hospital in Geneva for injuries that were not life-threatening. He will next appear in court Jan. 22 at the Kane County Judicial Center.

Jacobson charged with DUI Conviction would mean Hebron official violated probation By SHAWN SHINNEMAN sshinneman@shawmedia.com WALWORTH, Wis. – Hebron’s village president could face bulked up sentencing from a previous cocaine case if he’s convicted of pending drunken driving charges in Wisconsin.

John G. Jacobson awaits a March 13 court date in Walworth Municipal Court on October charges of operating while intoxicated, operating with prohibited alcohol concentration equal to or more than .15 percent and deviation from a designated lane.

A conviction would mean Jacobson violated his yearlong probation, a part of a plea deal struck in July 2013 to reduce pending felony charges for possession of crack cocaine to a Class A misdemeanor charge. “If it would be proven that he violated the law, he did violate

the terms of his conditional discharge and he could be resentenced,” Assistant State’s Attorney Michael Combs said. Class A misdemeanors carry a maximum sentence of a year in jail.

McHenry Public Works employees Dave Christopher (left) and Chris Etten fill potholes Tuesday along Lincoln Avenue in McHenry. As the area came out of the deep freeze and into above-freezing temperatures, the thawing caused the roads to expand and deteriorate.

To report potholes

jbustos@shawmedia.com A week after a deep freeze covered the Midwest, public works crews were out on the roads with cold patch, filling in the craters that have formed. The warm-up in recent days has led to some roads opening, forcing drivers to stay alert for potholes. Potholes occur when water within the road base or pavement freezes, expands, lifts up the pavement and then thaws out, leading

In Crystal Lake, people can report a pothole by going to www.crystallake. org and visiting the “Citizen Resource Center” underneath the “Residents” tab.

to pavement collapsing and leaving a hole in the road. Sometimes water can seep into the pavement, freeze and expand and cause the pothole as well. On Monday, Huntley public works workers used about one

ton of cold patch to fill potholes. However, the potholes have been small, said Director of Public Works Jim Schwartz. In Crystal Lake, the city had minor potholes Monday, said Public Works Director Victor Ramirez. “We’ve fared pretty well,” Ramirez said. The city has had a lot of roads resurfaced in recent years, which has helped lead to fewer potholes, Ramirez said. He said with the freezing temperatures expected this week fol-

lowed by a thaw, “that’s when all the problems happen.” “We’ll be working periodically to address them as necessary,” Ramirez said. “We have adequate material to do it.” In McHenry, potholes started developing over the weekend, said Public Works Superintendent Jon Schmitt. He said bad spots are spread out around town, and it all depends on the age or condition of the pavement.

County moves to buy property Income tax subject of Committees support purchase of workforce board building By KEVIN P. CRAVER kcraver@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – The McHenry County Board is moving forward with buying the building now leased for use by the county Workforce Network. Two County Board committees in two 5-0 votes are recommending the county spend $950,000 to buy the 500 Russel Court building, across from the county courthouse, which the Workforce Network calls home. The board’s lease expires June 30, and federal budget cuts have made the lease less feasible than owning the building, according to supporters. The Workforce Network,

funded through federal grants, offers programs and services for job seekers who need help in finding employment, and employers looking to find skilled workers. If approved by the County Board, the 10,000 square feet will continue to be home to the Workforce Network and the Workforce Investment Board that oversees it. “We’re done in June – we need to find a home as soon as possible,” network Director Julie Courtney told the County Board Management Services Committee. The County Board is expected to vote on the purchase Tuesday. Management Services recommended approval Monday, as did the Finance

and Audit Committee the following day. The county’s decision to buy the building comes after a review of the current lease arrangement and a search and cost analysis of other available lease sites of similar size, according to a memo prepared by county staff. Buying the building conforms to county government’s master campus plan, which wants to keep its departments and functions centralized as much as possible at its Woodstock complex. The workforce board is next to the county treasurer’s office, which used to be Cardunal Savings Bank until the County Board bought it in 2009.

McHENRY: RIVERSIDE HOTEL FIRE INVESTIGATION

McHenry resident faces sexual abuse charges

Lost Valley Visitor Center open despite damage

WOODSTOCK – A McHenry man has been charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse for inappropriate contact with a minor. Woodstock police said they began an investigation in December and joined with the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s OfGonzalo fice, the Illinois Ramirez Department of Children and Family Services and the Woodstock Child Advocacy Center to complete it. As a result of the investigation, Gonzalo Ramirez, 62, 713 N. Mill St., was charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse – a Class 2 felony that carries a potential sentence of four to seven years in prison. Woodstock police took Ramirez into custody at the Woodstock Police Department on Monday after cooperating with Woodstock detectives, police said. Ramirez was taken to McHenry County Jail Tuesday morning where he remains in custody.

RINGWOOD – The Lost Valley Visitor Center at Glacial Park remains open despite water damage caused by a burst pipe early Monday morning. The damage was the result of a frozen pipe that burst about 3:30 a.m. Monday, setting off an alarm that notified on-site staff, said McHenry County Conservation District spokeswoman Wendy Kummerer. The water flowed for about a half hour before it was turned off, damaging the floor and carpeting of the main floor’s Valley Overlook Room and the ceiling of the kids’ classroom located in the basement, she said. An estimated cost of the damage is not yet available as insurance is still looking into it, Kummerer said. The McHenry County Conservation District’s Board of Trustees will vote on waiving the 30-day competitive bid process at its meeting Thursday evening so the repairs can be expedited. However, the damage has not affected a free, twomonth visiting special exhibit on wolves and other wild

DeKALB COUNTY: CARBON MONOXIDE EXPOSURE

Landfill odor sickens students, staff at Cortland Elementary By KATIE DAHLSTROM and JILLIAN DUCHNOWSKI kdahlstrom@shawmedia.com and jduchnowski@shawmedia.com CORTLAND – Classes will resume Wednesday at Cortland Elementary School after an incident at the Waste Management landfill Tuesday sent more than 60 people to the hospital for low levels of carbon monoxide exposure. DeKalb District 428 crews noticed an odor in the elementary school just before 10 a.m., Superintendent James Briscoe said. Waste Management spokeswoman Lisa Disbrow said a contractor performing construction at the landfill hit a pocket of old, decomposing garbage releasing the odor, but no methane gas, into the air. “Any future work will be performed only when favorable conditions exist or the school is not in session as we complete this construction project,” Disbrow said in a statement. “We hope to have this project completed in the next two weeks, again based upon favorable conditions.” Officials had not determined late Wednesday what chemicals caused the odor. Neither the school’s nor the landfill’s hydrogen sulfide monitors alarmed, and firefighters did not find carbon monoxide in the school. An inspector from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency’s Bureau of Land will visit the site Thursday, said Kim Biggs, a spokeswoman for the environmental agency. Biggs said Waste Management officials described a heavy, sour odor. The wind carried that odor to the school where it got caught in the ventilation system, Briscoe said. “Our ventilation system is good, but it was just so concentrated,” Briscoe said. “We opened doors and it wasn’t long before you couldn’t smell anything.” Despite school officials’ efforts, 63 students and staff reported headaches, nausea, vomiting and other symptoms and were taken to Kishwaukee Hospital in DeKalb. Around 530 students attend Cortland Elementary. William Zaver watched fellow students in his fourthgrade class develop sore

throats after the overpowering odor moved through the school Tuesday morning. “I saw three people in my class get sick,” 10-year-old Zaver said. “It smelled a lot like gas.” The nausea students and staff reported feeling Tuesday morning was due to minor carbon monoxide exposure, said Michael Kulisz, chief medical officer for KishHealth System. Kulisz suggested parents monitor their children for headaches, nausea and vomiting for about 24 hours. Fresh air is the first course of treatment, but parents should use their judgment about whether they need to bring children into the emergency room to be given oxygen, he said. According to Cortland Assistant Fire Chief Kelly Davis, when emergency crews first responded to the scene, their tests for air quality showed no levels of any contaminants such as carbon monoxide. “Our air quality monitoring showed no levels of anything at all. Not from the initial sweep through the time the last units left the scene,” Davis said. The low levels of carbon monoxide were detected using an oximeter on students and staff who reported feeling ill. The doctor on the scene recommended those patients be transported to the emergency room, Davis added. Parents were told early Wednesday afternoon they could pick up their children, and remaining children were taken to the cafeteria where the ceilings are higher until buses could take them home at the normal time. “I got a voice mail from the school saying there was an issue,” said Chris Fowler as he walked his son Rowan, 8, out of the school. “It smelled like a dump,” said Rowan, a second-grade student. Firefighter/paramedics from several departments responded, including Cortland, DeKalb, Sycamore, Genoa-Kingston, Maple Park, Rochelle, Elburn, Burlington and Hinckley. First responders included nine ambulances, three fire engines and one rescue squad carrying more than 30 emergency personnel. Fire officials cleared the scene around 3 p.m. after four hours there, Davis said.

Obligation for Child’s Post-High School Education: Divorce and Paternity Q: If both parents have incomes, would it be fair to divide the post-high school education expenses in ratio to their incomes? A: Yes. But the court does not have to follow that ratio. The court should do what is fair.

Sara L. Busche, earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Purdue University and Juris Doctor degree from John Marshall Law School in Chicago. Before joining Gitlin & Busche she was a social worker for Lutheran Social Services of Illinois. She is now an experienced family law litigator.

Q: Can divorced parents and nonmarital parents be required to pay a child’s post-high school (college, trade school etc.) educational expenses? A: Yes. Q: But if the child is only a so-so high school student will the court still say the child is entitled to a post-high school education? A: Yes. Economically a college education today is what a high-school education was at the end of WW II. The way the courts have been ruling, if a child can be accepted into a school for post-high school education, it is likely that the court will order the parents to pay for the child’s post-high school education. Q: If the mother has custody and the father is paying child support, isn’t it the father’s obligation to pay the total bill for the child’s post-high school education or training? A: No, not usually. It is a joint obligation of both parents, and it depends on the financial resources of each parent and also depends on the financial resources of the child.

Q: Is it likely that the obligation for posthigh school education or training will last more than four years? A: No. There has been no reported Illinois case in which a parent was required to provide for a child’s graduate school expenses, but at some schools it takes five years to earn a fouryear degree because of course scheduling problems. Q: How about educational loans and grants? A: If the children will be obligated to pay for part of their education, that obligation should be written into the agreement. It is not unusual to have a child be required to apply for loans, grants and scholarships. Q: If the children are still young, is there a need to make specific provisions for the children’s post-high school education now? A: No. You may provide in your agreement that the court “reserves jurisdiction” on the issue of post-high school education or training and you may either come to an agreement on this later, or later present it to a judge for decision. Q: Can a child continue in college regardless of how poor the grades are?

A: No. In one appellate court case the trial court judge was affirmed in ruling that the child must maintain at least a C average. Q: Can the child attend any school regardless of cost? A: No. There is a broad variance in the cost of a college education. For example the approximate annual tuition cost (aside from room and board, etc.) at McHenry County College is $2,160, at Northern Illinois University, $11,014 and at Northwestern University, $41,983. Even in cases where the agreement of the parties provides that one of the parties (for example the father) pays all of the educational expenses of the child, the expenses (choice of schools) must be realistic in light of the obligor’s income and expenses. A well drafted agreement will set a certain school, for example, Northern Illinois University, as a benchmark, that is, that the parental obligation for the post-high school education of a child will not be more than is being charged at Northern Illinois University. Q: I prefer that my children attend a public/state school, such as Northern Illinois University, University of Illinois, McHenry County College etc. Will the court sustain my preference? A: Yes, probably. Illinois courts have a bias in favor of sending children to public/ state schools.

Permanent fixes to be made later in spring, summer • POTHOLES Continued from page B1 “We talked about it last week when we had the deep freeze,” Schmitt said. “Once it warmed up again, the potholes would show up.” Lake in the Hills Public Works Director Fred Mullard said whether a pothole forms depends on the condition of the pavement and the base underneath. Also a lot depends on how well the water drains off the street. Although the village hasn’t had many potholes, public works employees are watching the pavement conditions, Mullard said. When filling the voids in the streets, crews put in the

temporary patch material. In the spring, workers will cut out the area and put in a hot-mix asphalt, “that will have a chance to hold up better,” Mullard said. Some places are having a rough time with pavement conditions. In Bull Valley, some of

the roads have become very bumpy, said Village Administrator Rich Vance. Workers had to fill potholes while prepping for more snow to come. Vance said Country Club Road and part of Cherry Valley Road were some of the trouble spots. The village is using a more

expensive mixture to put in temporary patches this year, Vance said. “These are temporary fixes. We still have a project on Country Club Road; we’ll redo that in the late summer,” Vance said. The village also plans to apply for outside funding to be able resurface other roads. Vance said Bull Valley is working well with nearby townships to keep roads in good shape. “All the roads are getting bumpy, and ours are extremely bumpy in spots,” Vance said. “Things start moving around and freezing and thawing out. We knew it was going to be a difficult winter. So far, we’ve been doing pretty well.”

Jacobson charged with felony possession in January 2013 • JACOBSON Continued from page B1 The Wisconsin charge stems from an incident Oct. 27 in which Jacobson was pulled over at 2:40 a.m. in Walworth, Wis., according to a Walworth Police Department incident report. Jacobson responded to a question about whether he’d been drinking by saying he’d had “a couple,” according to

the report. A blood sample taken about 50 minutes after the arrest revealed a blood-alcohol content of .18 percent, more than twice the legal driving limit, the department said. Reached by phone Tuesday afternoon, Jacobson didn’t comment on the charge but said he has pleaded not guilty. Jacobson was previously found not guilty of a driving under the influence charge stemming from a late 2011 incident in Hebron.

In January 2013, Jacobson was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and unlawful delivery of a controlled substance. Police said about three grams of crack cocaine were found in his car. With Jacobson’s guilty plea, the felony charges were dropped and replaced by the misdemeanor attempted unlawful possession of a controlled substance. He was sentenced to a year of nonreporting probation under which

he couldn’t violate any law in any jurisdiction. Combs said he wasn’t aware of the potential violation until reached for comment by the Northwest Herald on Tuesday. “Now that we’re aware of it, we’ll look into it,” he said. Jacobson also was cited in McHenry County for driving without insurance in early December. But minor traffic violations don’t always prompt a probation violation, Combs said.

Lame-duck legislature increased Illinois’ income tax back in 2011 • TAX Continued from page B1 and unfunded pension obligations to make the 67 percent income tax hike permanent and pave the way to create a progressive tax structure. “A graduated income tax means more tax dollars for the state,” Franks said. “They aren’t cutting your taxes. It means more.” State Sen. Pam Althoff, R-McHenry, and Rep. Barbara Wheeler, R-Crystal Lake, agreed with Franks that the state should leave the income tax increase temporary and maintain its flat structure. Reboot Illinois, a nonprofit focused on public engagement at the state level, hosted the three lawmakers for the town hall event that also focused on the recent pension reform vote. The expiration of the income tax increase in an election year has already renewed discussions on how to address the state’s fiscal woes. Some Democratic legislators have wanted to use the opportunity to shift the state’s income tax structure to a sliding scale, where people pay different rates based on their income earnings. Led by Democrats, a lame-

duck legislature increased Illinois’ income tax rate in January 2011 (to expire in 2014) on the grounds that the extra revenue was needed to cut down the state’s $6 billion pile of unpaid bills. But the state merely increased spending for other programs, causing the unpaid backlog to grow, Althoff said. Democrats are unable to quit their frivolous spending habits, she said. “They don’t want to go in and say to somebody, ‘Your program isn’t working because you aren’t making it work,’ ” Althoff said. “It’s not as simple as saying we don’t want to raise revenue. We don’t want to give money to people to spend inappropriately when we are already in debt.” Entering her second year in the statehouse, Wheeler said she initially ran on the promise to repeal the state income tax hike on residents and businesses. She said she questioned state officials why the income tax increase didn’t help alleviate the state’s backlog in payments. “With higher taxes, it’s harder for employers and people who are spending the money,” Wheeler said. “It’s all a mistake.”

but now you do. Did you know that 50 to 60% of your retirement assets may be taxed if you leave them to your heirs at your death? This makes retirement assets one of the most costly assets to distribute to loved ones. You work hard for those dollars – do you really want the government to get half? Another option is to leave your heirs assets that receive a step up in basis (such as real estate and stock) and gift the retirement assets to charity. Charities are not taxed upon receiving an IRA or other retirement plan assets. Remember your loved ones with non-retirement assets – dedicate your retirement assets to benefit your charities of choice. Ask your plan provider or HR Department for a “change of beneficiary” form or download the form from the provider’s website. If you have questions, or need assistance in selecting a charitable organization, please contact The McHenry County Community Foundation at 815-338-4483.

For more than 20 years, Martin Luther King spoke out against _______ and segregation. During these years, he was arrested, had his ______ bombed, and was accused of being “un-American.”

© 2014 by Vicki Whiting, Editor Jeff Schinkel, Graphics Vol. 30, No. 5

4. 1.

The words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. helped to change the world. His words still inspire people today. He was born on January 15, 1929 in Atlanta, Georgia. His father was the minister of the Ebenezer Baptist Church, as was his father before him. Because Martin and his father had the same name, the family called him M.L.

When M.L. was young, he played with all the children who lived in his Atlanta neighborhood. But when they reached school age, the white children went to a school for white children only, and M.L. was sent to a school for black children. After the first day of school, M.L. and his white friends were never allowed to play together again. Standards Link: History: Students identify the people honored in commemorative holidays.

In 1964, the ______ Rights Act was passed, granting equal rights to black Americans and Dr. King received the Nobel Peace _______.

M.L. was very sad when his friends would no longer play with him. He asked his mother why they couldn’t. She talked about why the family didn’t ride streetcars, why there was a WHITES ONLY sign on the elevator at City Hall, why there were restaurants that refused to serve black people, and theaters that allowed blacks to sit only in the balcony. She said that it was simply because some white people didn’t understand that we all deserve equal treatment.

Sadly, just four _______ later, Dr. King was shot and killed in Memphis, Tenn. But his words live on.

Standards Link: History: Students understand the importance of individual action.

As M.L. grew up, he saw more and more examples of segregation. He also saw his father and others speak out against hatred and segregation. These people taught M.L. about the power of words. He learned that words could heal or hurt. ANSWER: 301 Standards Link: Mathematical Reasoning: Students use strategies, skills and concepts in finding solutions.

Leadership What are the qualities of a good leader? Who do you know that is a good leader? A good leader has to be kind to other people and respect them. If you wanted to be a good leader, you would have to be nice to people and show them that you are a good person. You have to be brave and not be mean.

A leader is a good organizer and is positive. A leader never lets you down. Lizet, 4th grade First of all, a good leader would pay attention to know what to do. Next, they would tell other kids what to do. Then they would help other kids and tell them how, what and when to do it. Lastly, they would test things out before telling their friends what to do. Wow! Being a leader is hard work! Isaac, 3rd grade

GIRLS BASKETBALL: PRAIRIE RIDGE 49, MCHENRY 34

HUNTLEY 54, CRYSTAL LAKE SOUTH 51

PR takes charge in 2nd half Wolves outscore Warriors 30-5 after halftime adjustment By KEVIN MEYER kmeyer@shawmedia.com The Prairie Ridge girls basketball team was not happy with its first-half performance in its Fox Valley Conference Valley Division game with McHenry on Tuesday night, and it showed. The Warriors had the lead and control of the game in the first half, looking to be well on their way to a possible upset. Then things changed in a big way. Prairie Ridge switched to a 1-3-1 defense that halted all McHenry offensive production, and picked up the pace offensively to turn a 10-point halftime deficit into a 49-34 win. Prairie Ridge scored the game’s final 21 points. “We’re down 10 at the break and I’d be lying if I said wasn’t worried,” Prairie Ridge coach Rob Baker said. “They had a great game plan working and it was going their way. “Panic did start to set in. We aren’t used to this situation much, of being the hunted rather than the hunter. But shots started to fall and we got things going our way.” The Wolves (12-6, 5-1 FVC Valley) found themselves down, 29-19, at the half mainly because of their own mistakes handling the basketball. Prairie Ridge turned the ball over 12 times in the first half and once after intermission. Sarah Le Beau broke out of a first-half scoring slump that saw her go just 1 for 6 from behind the arc in the second half. Le Beau converted two more 3-pointers and opened her mid-range game (5 for 6) to lead the team with 21 points. “We knew they would come out tough and we still managed to dig ourselves into a hole, so we had to try and find our way out of it,” Le Beau said. “No one else was taking the lead, so I just kept shooting it and they started to go in for me.” The Wolves’ defense also stepped up in the second half, allowing a total of five points. McHenry didn’t manage to score in the game’s final 13 minutes as Prairie Ridge went on a 21-0 run to end the game. Maddie Drain had 10 points and eight rebounds and Kirsten Voel-Pel added nine points for Prairie Ridge. For the Warriors (8-13, 0-5), it was the same third-quarter trouble they have had in the past. “I thought the first half we played outstanding; we did everything we wanted to do.” McHenry coach Scott Morris said. “Then the third quarter happened and we haven’t been able to fix that issue, it’s what really keeps setting us back.” Sawyer Lay led the team with 12 points, with all coming in the first half, and Katlyn Sena added seven. “We just have to try and get over this current slump. Luckily, we still have a few weeks to fix it, so we’re going to keep at it and see what happens,” Morris said.

mmontemurro@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – Stuck on the bench for most of the second half because of foul trouble, Huntley sophomore forward Ali Andrews was eager to get back on the basketball court. Andrews checked in to Tuesday’s

game against Crystal Lake South with four fouls with 4:31 left in the game and Huntley clinging to a two-point lead. Her impact was immediate, knocking down a 3-pointer within 30 seconds. Andrews scored the Red Raiders’ final

seven points as Huntley survived a late South comeback attempt for a 54-51 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division win. “I knew I had to step up at some point because shots weren’t falling so someone had to take the chance and be a leader,” Andrews said. “So I decided to go for it.” The Gators (11-7, 3-2 FVC Valley) put together a 6-0 run to trail by one point with 30 seconds remaining. South forced a Huntley turnover and called a timeout down 52-51 with 12 seconds left.

GIRLS BASKETBALL: JACOBS 64, DUNDEE-CROWN 53

8INSIDE GIRLS BASKETBALL Athlete of the Week KELSEY SCHMITT Crystal Lake Central, sr., guard Schmitt had the hot hand this week for the Tigers, leading Central to two key Fox Valley Conference Fox Division wins. The 5-foot-5 senior guard scored a game-high 19 points, including the go-ahead four-point play in Central’s win against Woodstock North. Schmitt also scored 20 points – with five 3-pointers – to lead all scorers in Saturday’s win against Woodstock.

Noteworthy Tigers rolling: Crystal Lake Central, led by a senior trio of Evelyn Youel, Schmitt and Shannon Ellman, remains in hunt for the FVC Fox Division title. Despite losing two of their first three division games to Grayslake Central and Grayslake North – which are the top two teams in the standings – the Tigers have won their past two games. In both wins against Woodstock North and Woodstock, the Central offense averaged 50.5 points while defensively surrendered 40.5 points. “They’ve accepted the role since the get-go,” Central coach Paul Lichtenheld said of the seniors leading the way. “They’ve started to understand what it means. They were kind of expected to do a lot last year so this isn’t their first rodeo. They’re playing their senior year for a second year I kind of feel like.” Standout shooting: It would be wise to avoid fouling and sending Huntley to the freethrow line. The Red Raiders are shooting 76.7 percent as a team at the line, led by senior forward Sam Andrews, who is shooting 88.8 percent. Combined with teammates Ali Andrews and Kayla Barreto, both sophomores, the trio has shot 74 percent of Huntley’s 280 free throws entering Tuesday. Prairie Ridge senior guard Sarah Le Beau is one of the area’s best 3-point shooters. She is shooting 47.2 percent on her 3-point attempts, making 42 of 89 shots beyond the arc. Gators adjusting: Crystal Lake South might have the most inshape starters by season’s end. With injuries having taken a toll on the Gators, coach Kyle McCaughn has been relying on a six-man rotation and his starters have logged major minutes. Junior forward Lauren Gauger suffered a season-ending injury while the status of junior forward Carly Nolan remains up in the air.

Eagles take giant leap forward in win With Barnec leading the way, Jacobs scores a season-high 64 By MAUREEN LYNCH sportsdesk@nwherald.com ALGONQUIN – Since the start of the season, Jacobs’ girls basketball team has focused intently on taking one small step forward each day in the hope of taking one big one when it counted. On Tuesday, the Golden Eagles lept. Jacobs struggled with little and capitalized on nearly every opportunity DundeeCrown gave it, particularly

down the stretch at the freethrow line. The result was a 64-53 victory against the Chargers in a Fox Valley Conference Valley Division contest and the first of two District 300 showdowns between the teams this season. Tuesday also marked the first time this season Jacobs scored more than 60 points in a game – a nod in part to the Eagles’ 18-for-21 shooting from the stripe in the fourth quarter to hold off a Chargers comeback.

“It definitely feels good,” said Jacobs junior Jennifer Barnec, who led all scorers with 18 points. “We feel like our intensity has gone up (lately) and we want it more.” The Eagles’ will to finish strong became most apparent in the final few minutes of the fourth. With her team trailing by 12, 47-35, Chargers sophomore guard Melissa Barker nailed a 3-pointer to spark a six-point run that cut Jacobs’ advantage to 47-41. Barnec got an open look and knocked down a 3-pointer off a ball screen from senior Tiffany Frighetto to extend the Eagles’ lead to nine, 50-41, with 2:26 remaining. Barker answered with her second 3

of the quarter to make it 50-44 just seconds later, and she hit another three at the 1:48 mark to make it 53-47. But the Chargers kept sending the Eagles (4-15 overall, 2-4 FVC Valley) to the line, and Jacobs obliged. Barnec went 3 for 3, junior Glenita Williams went 2 for 3 and freshman Carly Sidor went 2 for 3 to help close out the game. “Give D-C credit; they just kept coming at us,” Jacobs coach Joe Benoit said. “It seemed like every shot they put up in the fourth quarter went in. Those kids don’t quit. We kept trying to put them away and couldn’t do it.” D-C (6-16, 1-5) led 12-8 at the end of the first quarter, helped

in part by threes from Barker (team-high 14 points) and Lauren Lococo (13 points). Lococo was fouled on a layup and made her free throw to put the Chargers ahead 16-13 with 4:45 left in the first half, but Jacobs went on a 9-2 run to go ahead 22-18. The Chargers never led again and suffered a third-quarter setback when they scored just six points. “You have to credit Jacobs because they really battled and finished,” D-C coach Sarah Miller said. “There were some moments in the third quarter where we kind of fell back a little, but Jacobs played great defense and we didn’t get as many looks in the zone. But we played with a lot of heart.”

GIRLS BASKETBALL: CRYSTAL LAKE CENTRAL 39, JOHNSBURG 30

Road win has Tigers’ confidence soaring CL Central surpasses last season’s FVC Fox win total By PATRICK MASON pmason@shawmedia.com JOHNSBURG – When Crystal Lake Central girls basketball coach Paul Lichtenheld took over the team last season, he brought with him a new system. It took some getting used to in the first season, but now, in his second year, the Tigers are playing solid basketball. Their improved play, specifically on the defensive end, was evident in a 39-30 win over Fox Valley Conference Fox Division opponent Johnsburg on Tuesday night.

With Tuesday’s win, the Tigers (10-8 overall, 4-2 FVC Fox) have one more conference win than last season’s team and are three wins away from tying last season’s total. “It feels really nice to get a big conference win on the road against a team like Johnsburg,” Tigers guard Kelsey Schmitt said. Schmitt scored a gamehigh 13 points. The win over the Skyhawks, she said, was because of the Tigers’ ability to play more fluidly with each other than in the past. “It’s just all of our connections on the court,” Schmitt

said. “We feel more connected and we flow better as a team.” The Tigers jumped out to an early lead after starting the game on an 11-1 run on the strength of five points from Schmitt and four from Evelyn Youel. Central used good defensive rotations mixed with an aggressive emphasis on the ball-handler to force turnovers and generate points. Central expanded its seven-point halftime lead and took a 33-20 lead into the fourth quarter. The Skyhawks pushed the ball and drew the game within 33-27, the slimmest margin since the first quarter, but couldn’t gain any more ground. Lichtenheld pointed to his team’s resolve during runs such as the Skyhawks’ in the fourth quarter. It’s something that has

improved from last season. “The second year in a system always goes better,” Lichtenheld said. “We just had to break some habits, not bad habits, but different. “We have done a good job of moving on and reacting to our playing bad basketball and sometimes we have let up a bit when we were up, but we have gotten away from that and that was key tonight.” Despite being down the entire game, the Skyhawks made a fourth-quarter run, scoring seven unanswered points. Trace Chase scored three of her teamhigh seven points in the quarter. While Central has made significant strides, Johnsburg has followed suit. The Skyhawks (8-12, 3-3) have doubled their win total from last season and have won as many confer-

ence games as the year before. The improved play has led to new highs in confidence and a lighter atmosphere in practice. Skyhawks coach Brad Frey attributes the development and strong season to the leadership of the six seniors on the team who have approached the season with a genuine want to succeed and a penchant for having fun. “At this point last year we were two and a million. We still had fun, but now they know they can win and it’s been a lot different.” Frey said. “The seniors are great leaders and they really do a nice job of getting everyone involved and leading practices. “It’s just so much fun and fun for me. The games mean something and every one is important.”

ROUNDUP

C-G boys rallies past D-C NORTHWEST HERALD Cary-Grove was down five points to Dundee-Crown heading into the fourth quarter of their Fox Valley Conference boys basketball game Tuesday in Cary. The Trojans outscored the Chargers, 16-5, in the fourth. Led by Jason Gregoire’s six points in the fourth, they won 44-38. Gregoire had 19 points to lead all scorers. Also for C-G, Devin McDonough had 10 points, including two 3-pointers. Cordero Parson led the Chargers with 18 points and was 5 of 7 from the free-throw line. Also for D-C, Zach Pochop had 11. Parson and Pochop each had three 3-point baskets.

overtime to give the Rockets (7-7, 2-2) the win. Hannah Koenig scored 12 points, Abby Straight had 11 and Sara Swanson and Guenther added nine.

Despite creating an open look off a set play, South couldn’t knock down the goahead basket and Andrews iced the game at the free-throw line. Andrews scored 11 of her game-high 25 points in the second half, even though she played only six minutes because of foul trouble. Three Gators scored in double digits, led by senior forward Sara Mickow’s 15 points. “It’s a tough force when you’ve got two kids like [Sam and Ali Andrews] to go up against and our kids responded so well,” South coach Kyle McCaughn said. “We tried to switch it up as time went on. I think we threw them off their game just a little bit. We got them out of rhythm.” Huntley (16-3, 6-0) led by seven with 2:35 remaining, but South continued to pressure the Red Raiders. A pair

of free throws and a layup by sophomore guard Chanel Fanter in a seven-second span cut Huntley’s lead to 52-49, and a minute later – with 30 seconds left – she converted two more free throws to make it a onepoint game. The Red Raiders shot 5 of 14 at the free-throw line and missed two 1-and-1 free throws in the final 1:17. Down three points heading into the fourth quarter, Huntley rattled off five quick points, including a 3-pointer from Sam Andrews (15 points) to give the Red Raiders a 45-43 lead. The Red Raiders recovered from a five-point deficit after the first quarter. “In the first half, I thought we were really out of sync offensively,” Huntley coach Steve Raethz said. “Just not really in tune with each other, and we were turning the ball over. Part of it was our fault, and on top of it South did a great job.”

Lions hire ex-Colts coach Caldwell

Glasder heading to Japan, Sochi could be next

Whisenhunt was team’s top choice By LARRY LAGE The Associated Press ALLEN PARK, Mich. – The Detroit Lions wanted to replace Jim Schwartz with someone with experience as a head coach. The Lions landed one, although he appears to be Plan B. The team said Tuesday that Jim Caldwell has been hired as the new coach and will be introduced at a news conference Wednesday. San Diego Chargers assistant and former Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt seemingly was Detroit’s top choice, but he chose to take the head coaching job at Tennessee on Monday night. The Lions are giving Caldwell another chance to be an NFL head coach. He helped the

Baltimore Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell walks onto the field as his team warms up during a Super Bowl XLVII practice last year in New Orleans. The Detroit Lions announced Tuesday they have hired Caldwell as their new head coach. Indianapolis Colts reach the Super Bowl after his debut season in 2009, but was fired two years later after a 2-14 season while Peyton Manning was injured, dropping his three-year mark to 26-22. “We believe Jim is the right man to lead our team and de-

liver a championship to our fans,” Lions owner William Clay Ford said in a statement. Caldwell was hired by Baltimore two years ago to be their quarterbacks coach and was promoted to offensive coordinator late in the 2012 season. The Ravens went on to win the

last Super Bowl. “I’m excited because he has worked with some good coaches and he did a good job with the Colts,” Lions offensive guard Rob Sims said in a telephone interview. “Players seem to like him, so I’m looking forward to being a part of the next chapter of Detroit Lions football with him leading us.” The Ravens, however, struggled on offense in 2013 and might’ve replaced Caldwell if he didn’t get another job. Baltimore ranked 29th on offense overall – 30th rushing and 18th passing – last season with Super Bowl-winning quarterback Joe Flacco and running back Ray Rice. Caldwell’s body of work was enough to also make him a candidate to lead the Washington Redskins and the Titans. Former Tennessee coach Mike Munchak and ex-Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak were also considered by the Lions.

WHITE SOX

Tanaka might be too expensive for teams By DARYL VAN SCHOUWEN dvanschouwen@suntimes.com Although coveted free-agent Masahiro Tanaka’s desire is to pitch in the major leagues, just where he wants to do so remains a mystery. As the Jan. 24 deadline to sign the r i g h t - h a n d e r Masahiro draws nearer, Tanaka the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees continue to be the best bets to sign him to a contract most believe will be in the $100 million range over six or seven seasons. The White Sox met with Tanaka and his representa-

tives last week in Los Angeles. The Sox’s contingent included executive vice president Ken Williams, general manager Rick Hahn and manager Robin Ventura. Absent from the meeting was chairman Jerry Reinsdorf, which one source with close ties to the Sox suggests the team’s interest in Tanaka might be more warm than hot. Although the Sox say it would be a mistake to draw a conclusion from that, Tanaka’s price tag might cool their interest if one industry source’s prediction that Tanaka will get $140 million is correct. There is also a $20 million posting fee the team that signs Tanaka must pay to his Japanese team, the Rakuten Golden Eagles.

Tanaka’s wife, Mai Satoda, is an entertainment star in Japan whose career might cause him to favor the Dodgers and Yankees. A report in Japan said the West Coast is her top choice. The Sox, Cubs, Boston Red Sox, Seattle Mariners and Arizona Diamondbacks are said to be very interested, despite the huge money it would take to sign someone who hasn’t thrown a pitch in the majors. A major-league scout said Japanese import Yu Darvish’s success with the Texas Rangers has raised Tanaka’s stock, ‘‘but you can’t forget how quickly Dice-K [Daisuke Matsuzaka] faded with the Red Sox, and this guy has similar traits to Dice-K – not very big

and a heavy workload at a young age [25].’’ Tanaka was 24-0 with a 1.27 ERA for Rakuten last season. In seven seasons in Japan, he is 99-35 with a 2.30 ERA. The Yankees need starting pitching more than the Dodgers, and the Mariners need more of everything to justify their $240 million signing of second baseman Robinson Cano. The Cubs also need pitching, and the Sox would have a formidable one-two punch at the top of their rotation with Chris Sale and Tanaka. ‘‘Expect a bidding war to take place, and it could get crazy,’’ an industry source said. ‘‘But will [Tanaka] just take the money or pick a place that is comfortable?’’

Cary native Michael Glasder’s hopes of making the United States Olympic ski jumping team have taken him to Japan for four upcoming competitions. Glasder, 24, ranks third among U.S. National team members who are competing for four open spots remaining on the American men’s team. Nick Fairall earned an automatic berth by winning the Olympic Trials last month in Park City, Utah. The remaining slots will be filled based on a points system based on performances in past competitions as well as the four events that will take place this week in Sappora, Japan. Glasder, who placed 24th overall Sunday in an event in France, said in a Twitter message Tuesday night that the finish had earned him some points toward making the Olympic team. “Feeling pretty confident at the moment,” Glasder wrote. “[I’m] just going to keep things rolling.” Glasder posted on his Facebook fan page Monday that he was supposed to compete four times in Poland. But those events were canceled because of warm temperatures and a lack of snow. Of the four events scheduled to take place in Japan, two will be on 90-meter hills and the other two will take place on 120-meter hills. The U.S. Olympic ski jumping team, which will include women for the first time, will be announced later his month. The Sochi Winter Games begin Feb. 7.

JUNEAU, Wis. – A Tinley Park man was fined $250 after allegedly using a stun gun on his wife after she lost a bet on a Packers-Bears game. John Grant, 42, pleaded no contest to disorderly conduct in a Wisconsin court Thursday. The Daily Citizen reports Judge Steven Bauer ordered the fine, plus court costs. The couple was driving through Mayville when they stopped at a bar to watch the Nov. 4 game. The Bears won 27-20. According to the complaint, Nicole Grant said her husband could use a stun gun on her for three seconds if Green Bay lost. John Grant allegedly used it three times, and she called police. She told officers she didn’t think her husband would actually use the weapon on her. – Staff, wire reports

of NFL concussion claims, questioning if there’s enough money to cover 20,000 retired players. U.S. District Judge Anita B. Brody denied preliminary approval of the plan Tuesday because she’s worried the money could run out sooner than expected. She also raised concerns that anyone who gets concussion damages from the NFL would be barred from suing the NCAA or other amateur football leagues. “I am primarily concerned that not all retired NFL football players who ultimately receive a qualifying diagnosis or their [families] ... will be paid,” Brody wrote in a 12-page opinion issued Tuesday. The proposed settlement, negotiated over several months, is designed to last at least 65 years.

By DENNIS PASSA The Associated Press MELBOURNE, Australia – After a day of searingly hot temperatures that raised complaints from players, top-seeded Rafael Nadal advanced to the second round of the Australian Open in relatively mild conditions. Nadal’s Australian opponent, Bernard Tomic, bothered from the start by a left leg injury, retired from the match after losing the first set, 6-4. Some in the capacity crowd of 15,000 at Rod Laver Arena booed lustily when Tomic indicated he could not continue. Roger Federer, Andy Murray and defending champion Victoria Azarenka advanced earlier Tuesday amid temperatures that topped 108 degrees. Third-seeded Maria

Sharapova joined them when she beat American Bethanie Mattek-Sands, 6-3, 6-4, in the last match of the night. Mattek-Sands double-faulted on break point in the ninth game of the second set, and Sharapova served out. T o m i c called a medical timeout after three games, and twice more Rafael Nadal before he quit. “Unfortunately, it’s unlucky how it happened. I went for one ball and felt pain in my left leg,” Tomic said of the training injury. Nadal said he felt for his opponent. “I know how tough is this situation, I had the same thing a few years ago at this tournament,” Nadal said.

“Since the beginning, I saw a little bit he had some problems on the leg.” Federer started his record 57th consecutive Grand Slam tournament with a 6-4, 6-4, 6-2 win over Australian wild-card entry James Duckworth on a day when the heat forced at least one player to black out during his match. Azarenka played the opening match on the center court, and said it felt “like you’re dancing in a frying pan.” She had a 7-6 (2), 6-2 win over No. 91-ranked Johanna Larsson of Sweden. Wimbledon champion Murray, on the comeback from minor back surgery in September, had a 6-1, 6-1, 6-3 win over Go Soeda of Japan and No. 5 Juan Martin del Potro rallied for a 6-7 (1), 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 win over U.S. qualifier Rhyne Williams.

Hawks 4-11 in games played past regulation • HAWKS Continued from page C1 The defending Stanley Cup champions are 4-11 this season in games that go longer than 60 minutes. They are 0-5 in overtime and 4-6 in shootouts. Colorado defenseman Erik Johnson left late in the second period with a lower-body injury. He tried to return for a shift in the third, but didn’t continue. Colorado led 2-0 after the first period, despite being outplayed until about 14 minutes in when the Hawks held a 12-3 advantage in shots. But Barrie opened the scoring on a soft screened shot from just inside the right point with 5:02 left in the first. He flipped the puck past several players, and then it sailed over

Crawford’s glove. O’Reilly made it 2-0 with a power-play goal on a crisp passing play 1:02 later and just 10 seconds after Kris Versteeg was sent off for hooking. O’Reilly slipped the puck past Crawford after a wide-open setup at the edge of the crease. The Hawks pushed back and turned up the pressure in the second, outshooting Colorado 10-1 in the first half of the period and 16-6 overall. But the Hawks only managed to cut Colorado’s lead to 2-1, cashing in on Oduya’s deflection of Brandon Saad’s screened shot from the slot. Shaw tied it on a rebound. He swept in a shot from 10 feet out after Varlamov stopped Saad from point-blank range. The Hawks’ Michal Rozsival hit the right post with a shot with about 7:30 left.

Oatmeal Batter Bread

As winter drags on, comfort food can have restorative power, plain and simple By PHYLLIS RICHMAN

Oatmeal Batter Bread

The Washington Post

12 servings; one 1-pound loaf This bread (above) is easy to make, needs only a single rise and is remarkably low in fat.

O

ne winter many years ago, I came home from Florida with a fever and chills. I took myself to bed and dozed, dreaming of the one medicine I knew would work. Where could I get it? I could barely sit up, much less poke around the kitchen for noodles and carrots, celery and onion, a plump chicken and a pot big enough to hold them all. I needed chicken soup, the surefire curative for my sore throat and virus, or at least the palliative. I had another problem, too. Because I’d been away for a week, not only was my refrigerator empty, but I had no restaurant notes. I was a bedridden restaurant critic with no immediate prospect of a restaurant to review for that week. By dinnertime, I’d identified the obvious solution to my problem: I’d write a column on chicken soup. I started calling to find out who delivered. A box of Kleenex, a warm quilt and a bowl of chicken soup. That’s what comfort food means to me. But I’m not everyone. For others, comfort food might just as easily be a chilled bowl of ice cream as a hot bowl of soup. Mashed potatoes are a natural. So are meatballs, rice pudding and applesauce. Every culture has its comfort foods; in ours, they are most commonly what is otherwise known as nursery food: Jell-O, custard, oatmeal without lumps. In addition to being soft, their color is neutral, and most likely they are basically a starch. (What can out-comfort chocolate pudding or tapioca?) Everything about comfort food is soothing. Supporting that idea, most comfort foods require little chewing and are bland enough to leave your taste buds asleep. That leaves Thai food and Indian food behind, at least for many Americans. Still, every comfort food rule has an exception, which explains chili. When you veer from the straight and narrow, you’ll find subcategories of comfort food, and exceptions to that rule about nursery food. The smooth puree edges into the creamy: chicken potpie or tuna noodle casserole. Those segue into soft meats: chicken, meatloaf, meatballs. Chocolate is its own category. So what we are talking about here is food that is quiet in its mood, its effect and its impact, even when it crunches rather loudly. It is beloved food, food that makes us feel good. If we hadn’t come across it, we would have had to invent it. Which is what I did, they say. I don’t really believe I created the term, but the Oxford English Dictionary and some Webster’s dictionaries give me credit. They attribute the first print mention of “comfort food” to an article in the Washington Post Magazine in 1977. I wrote that article. I used the term to describe shrimp and grits. Since then – if not before – it has been one of my favorite food descriptors. Naturally, I was delighted to be asked to write about comfort food again, 36 years after that 1977 introduction.

1 cup warm whole or 2 percent milk (105 to 115 degrees) 1/4 cup honey or packed light brown sugar 1 packet (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour 1 large egg, lightly beaten 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 3/4 cup whole-wheat flour 1/2 cup old-fashioned or steelcut rolled oats (do not use quick-cooking oats), plus more for optional garnish Combine the milk, honey or brown sugar and the yeast in the bowl of stand mixer or a mixing bowl, stirring until the yeast has dissolved. Let the mixture rest for 5 minutes. Grease an 8-by-4-by-2-inch loaf pan with cooking oil spray. Add the all-purpose flour, egg, oil and salt to the yeast mixture. Beat on low speed until combined, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Increase the speed to high; beat for 3 minutes. Stop to scrape down the sides of the bowl. The dough will be very sticky. Use a wooden spoon to stir in the whole-wheat flour and oats until well incorporated; this will take some arm strength. Transfer the batter to the loaf pan, spreading it evenly. Cover, and set it in a warm place to rise for at least 1 hour or until doubled in size. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Uncover the loaf pan; sprinkle the bread with some oatmeal, if desired. Bake for about 15 minutes, then tent loosely with aluminum foil. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the bread sounds hollow when lightly tapped. Uncover; immediately transfer the bread (in the loaf pan) to a wire rack to cool for at least 20 minutes before serving, or cool completely before storing.

Citrus-Lemon Grass Rice Pudding 8 servings (9 cups) Creamy and delicately perfumed, this version of rice pudding provides a cool lift at the end of a meal. 5 inches lemon grass, smashed, then finely chopped 3 cups low-fat (2 percent) milk 3 1/2 cups canned, well-shaken coconut milk (two 13.5-ounce cans; do not use low-fat) 1 1/2 cups sugar 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 1 1/2 cups uncooked medium-grain white

rice, preferably arborio, rinsed with cold water and drained well 1 1/2 tablespoons finely grated zest from a mixture of lemon, lime and orange, plus optional zest for garnish 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom Use cooking oil spray to grease the inside/ insert of the slow-cooker. Wrap up and tie the lemon grass in a piece of cheesecloth (for infusing). Place it in a medium, heavy-bottomed saucepan, along with the milk, coconut milk, sugar and salt, over medium heat. Once the mixture is hot but not boiling, pour it into the slow-cooker (including

the lemon grass sachet). Stir in the rice. Cover and cook on low for 2 hours; the mixture will be bubbling at the edges. Remove from the heat; discard the lemon grass sachet, then stir in the zest, the vanilla extract or paste and the cardamom. Cool slightly, then divide among individual bowls. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until well chilled. Discard the wrap; garnish with the optional zest, if desired. The pudding will thicken further as it cools.

1 tablespoon tomato paste 2 cups chardonnay 3 cups water or lobster broth, plus 1/4 cup water for brushing 2 large potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces 4 cups (frozen/defrosted or from 3 ears) corn kernels 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil Kosher salt Freshly ground white pepper 2 cups heavy cream Cooked meat from two 1 1/4-pound lobsters (10 to 12 ounces; See Note) 1 sheet (9 ounces) frozen/defrosted puff pastry, preferably Dufour brand 1 large egg, for brushing Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over

medium heat. Once the oil shimmers, add the carrot, celery, onion, fennel and garlic, stirring to coat. Cook for about 8 minutes or until the mixture begins to brown a little. Clear a small space at the center of the pan and add the tomato paste. Cook for a minute or two, then add the wine and stir to incorporate those ingredients, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Cook until the liquid has reduced by half, then stir in the 3 cups of water or lobster broth, the potatoes and corn. Cook for at least 20 minutes or until the liquid has reduced by half. The potatoes should be barely tender. Add the tarragon and basil, then season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the cream; cook for 15 minutes or until the liquid has reduced by half, then stir

Steaming the torta inside a slow cooker helps create a tender, creamy texture. You’ll need a 6-cup souffle dish, a round rack to rest it on and a slow-cooker large enough to contain the dish. If you don’t have a rack, make a thick coil using crumpled aluminum foil.

Add the (live) lobsters, head first. Cover and cook for 10 minutes, then use tongs to transfer to the lobster to a large bowl of cold water and ice cubes. Once the lobsters have cooled, crack the tails, claws and knuckles to retrieve the meat, cutting it into 1/2-inch chunks. To make lobster broth, transfer the lobster heads and any cracked shell to a large saucepan. Cover with at least 5 cups of water. Bring to a boil over high heat; cook for 10 to 15 minutes, then strain; discard the lobster heads and shells – or use a head for a striking garnish.

in the lobster meat. Remove from the heat. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Use cooking oil spray to grease a medium-size souffle dish. Place on a rimmed baking sheet. Cut the puff pastry to fit just inside the rim of the dish. Pour the potpie mixture into the dish, then cover with the puff pastry, trimming off the excess. (Reserve for another use, if desired.) Combine the remaining 1/4 cup of water and the egg to create an egg wash; brush it onto the puff pastry and discard the rest. Use a sharp knife to create a small hole at the center of the pastry or cut a few slits in the top. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes, until golden brown. Let the potpie rest for 5 minutes before serving. NOTES: To cook the lobsters, bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat.

1/2 cup finely chopped scallions, white and light-green parts 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil Grease the inside of the souffle dish with a little butter. Place the rack inside the slow-cooker. Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil over high heat. Add the green beans and a generous pinch of salt. Cook for about 7 minutes or until the beans are bright green and tender. Drain the beans in a colander and immediately rinse under cool running water. Pat them dry, then arrange them in the bottom of the souffle dish. Whisk together the eggs and milk; season with a small pinch of salt and a generous sprinkling of pepper. Pour slowly into the souffle dish. Gently stir in the cheese,

scallions and basil. Pour 2 cups of very hot/justboiled water into the slow cooker, then place the souffle dish on the rack in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until a knife inserted into the center of the torta comes out clean. Remove the dish from the slow cooker. Run a knife around the edge of the torta to help dislodge it from the souffle dish, then carefully slide it onto a serving plate. Cut into wedges; serve warm or at room temperature.

Line a large plate with a few layers of paper towels. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large, heavy skillet (not cast iron) over medium-high heat. Meanwhile, stir together the flour, paprika, salt and pepper in a wide, shallow bowl. Dip each cube steak into the flour mixture to coat evenly and well, shaking off any excess. Once the oil shimmers, add two or three of the coated steaks. Fry until golden brown on both sides, then transfer to the lined plate. Repeat to cook all of the steaks, using the remaining tablespoon of oil. Drain/wipe out the fat in the

skillet, then return the skillet to medium-high heat. Add the tomatoes and their juices, the celery, carrot, onion and water. Once the mixture comes to a boil, stir, then return all the meat to the pan and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and cook for 1 1/4 hours or until the meat is tender. Taste, and add salt and pepper as needed. Serve the Swiss steak hot, with the vegetable mixture and its sauce. VARIATION: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare and brown the cube steaks as directed above. Transfer them to an 8-cup-capacity

baking dish. In the same skillet, combine the tomatoes and their juices, the celery, carrot, onion and water over medium-high heat; scrape the bottom to dislodge any browned bits, then pour the mixture evenly over the meat in the baking dish. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour or until the meat is tender.

Pastitsio is classic Greek dish that can be gluten-free I have been craving Greek dishes – Greek Pastitsio in particular. Years ago, I used to work at an authentic Greek restaurant and I learned to make many of the Greek dishes. Pastitsio was one of my favorites. This version comes from Simply Gourmet, www. simply-gourmet.com, and I love its versatility to be made gluten-free. Serve with a mixed green salad, and dinner is done.

THE PERSONAL CHEF Debi Stuckwisch according to directions and drained (can substitute gluten-free noodles) Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. For the meat sauce: In a large sauté pan, heat olive oil. Add onions and cook until soft. Add tomato paste, garlic, oregano and cinnamon. Cook until mixture starts to darken. Add ground beef and lamb. Cook until meat is no longer pink. Add wine. Let simmer until wine has reduced to about 1 tablespoon. Add tomato sauce and simmer until thick, about 10 minutes. Stir in Parmesan cheese, and add salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat. For the béchamel sauce: In a separate pan, melt the butter for the béchamel sauce. Add flour and stir to combine. Stir in milk and cream and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and reduce sauce down to about 4 cups, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat once thickened. Add 1 cup of Romano cheese and stir until smooth. Using a 9-by-13 baking dish, combine prepared noodles and 2 cups of béchamel sauce. Stir and smooth out in bottom of pan. To the remaining 2 cups of béchamel sauce, add the eggs and yogurt.

Angry dad wants to learn Sexually active women must find how to control his emotions right birth control pill among many Dear Abby: I’m a dad in my

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips

30s and I have a problem. I have been battling anger issues since I was a kid. I have been finding myself getting more and more worked up with my kids. When they misbehave, I lose it and yell at them. It is the way I was raised; however, I feel even worse afterward. I really want to break this habit. I don’t want the only memories my children have of me to be images of my red face and bugged-out eyes hollering at them. Do you have any guidelines I can follow to get a better handle on my anger? – Loud Dad In West

children act up. Rather, you need to find another manner for expressing your emotions. My booklet “The Anger in All of Us and How to Deal With It” offers suggestions on redirecting angry feelings in a healthy way. It can be ordered by sending your name and mailing address, plus a check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds), to Dear Abby – Anger Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price. Dealing with anger calmly and with reason is more effective than lashing out. Expressing your feelings is healthy when it’s done with a few well-chosen words that make your point. As you have already learned, exploding in anger serves no constructive purpose and only makes you feel worse afterward. Sometimes when people are angry or frustrated about other things, they can lose control of their temper. In situations like these, it is important to evaluate the

Virginia Dear Loud Dad: Yes, I do. And I’m glad you asked me because it’s important that you find other ways of relieving your frustration than taking it out on your children. It is not only counterproductive, it is extremely destructive. When a bigger person yells at a smaller person, the message is often lost because the smaller person (in your case, your children) simply shuts down out of fear that physical violence might follow. You should not ignore your feelings when your

source of what might really be irritating you before misdirecting your anger at someone who is blameless. There are healthy ways of dealing with anger and frustration. Developing the control to express emotions verbally without being abusive or calling names is one of them. Another is to say a prayer (“Please Lord, don’t let me lose my temper!”) before opening your mouth. Leaving the room, going for a walk or short run can be helpful. Unhealthy ways that should be avoided include getting into your car when you are angry, or using alcohol or drugs to calm you. My booklet offers many other suggestions for dealing with anger and frustration, and I hope it will be helpful to you. However, if it isn’t, then you should discuss your problem with a mental health professional. It’s important to get a handle on your feelings so your children won’t grow up thinking that verbal abuse is a normal way to handle their emotions.

Dear Dr. K: I’ve recently become sexually active, and I’m planning to go on the pill. But there are so many different types of birth control pills. Which one is right for me? Dear Reader: I don’t know enough about you to give an answer that’s right for you. From my general remarks about these pills, I’m hopeful you can pinpoint the ones that seem right for you and discuss them with your doctor. Birth control pills can be divided into two basic categories: combined pills and minipills. Most birth control pills are combined pills. They contain a combination of two types of female sex hormones: the hormone estrogen and a progestogen (a group of hormones that includes progesterone). Minipills contain a progestogen, but no estrogen. The estrogen in combined birth control pills prevents ovulation, the release of a mature egg from a woman’s ovary. Combined birth control pills also thicken cervical secretions, creating a barrier that makes it difficult for sperm to get into the uterus. They produce changes in the tubes that carry the egg from the ovaries to the uterus. And they make it hard for a fertilized egg to implant in

ASK DR. K Anthony Komaroff

the uterus. These effects are caused by the progestogen. Combination birth control pills are 98 to 99 percent effective in preventing pregnancy. The more estrogen, the better the birth control effect. Unfortunately, the more estrogen, the higher the likelihood of side effects such as high blood pressure or headaches. Minipills do not prevent ovulation as effectively as combination pills because they don’t contain estrogen. They mainly act by thickening secretions of the cervix and making it hard for a fertilized egg to implant in the uterus. They are about 98 percent effective. Minipills need to be taken exactly as directed. Even missing one pill can greatly reduce their effectiveness. Combination birth control pills are available in three subtypes: monophasic, biphasic and triphasic. Monophasic pills contain a constant amount of estrogen and progestogen. With biphasic and triphasic pills, the dose varies over the course of the month.

For most women, monophasic birth control pills are a good first option. They work as well as the more expensive and more complicated biphasic and triphasic products. Minipills are a good option if you have a reason to avoid estrogen. The most common reasons are a tendency to develop blood clots, smoking and current breastfeeding. That’s because estrogen increases the tendency for blood clots. In smokers, even if they’ve never had a problem with blood clots in the past, starting on estrogen increases the risk for clots – and of the heart attacks and strokes caused by them. Estrogen reduces the amount of breast milk, so estrogen-containing birth control pills normally are not recommended in women who are breast feeding. It may take some trial and error to find the best birth control pill for you. Try to achieve the right hormonal balance – just enough to prevent pregnancy, but not enough to cause side effects.

The Washington Post Homemade chicken soup is one of my family’s favorites, and I try to make the soup hearty so it passes muster as a dinner entree, especially on cold nights. I don’t always have time for the full-blown, fromscratch soup, which takes hours to make, strain and cool properly, so I came up with a somewhat quicker version that uses storebought broth and is enriched with dill, barley and aromatic vegetables.

Dilled Chicken Soup Stew 7 or 8 servings (about 11 cups) 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 medium onion, chopped Kosher salt 8 ounces white or cremini mushrooms, cut into 1/2-inch cubes 3 medium carrots, scrubbed well and cut into 3/4-inch pieces 2 medium ribs celery, cut into

3/4-inch pieces 6 large sprigs dill, plus 1/4 cup chopped dill, for garnish 5 to 6 cups no-salt-added chicken broth Freshly ground black pepper 3 pounds bone-in skinless chicken breast halves 3/4 cup uncooked pearled barley Heat the oil in a 5-quart Dutch oven or large, heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium-high heat. Once the oil shimmers, add the onion and a pinch of salt, stirring to coat; reduce the heat to medium. Cook for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onion starts to soften. Stir in the mushrooms; cook for about 4 minutes, then add the carrots, celery, dill sprigs and 5 cups of the broth. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Place the chicken breast halves in the broth, bone side up. The broth should just cover the chicken; if it doesn’t, add some or all of the remaining broth as needed. Poach the chicken, uncovered,

until it is cooked through, 30 to 45 minutes; reduce the heat as needed so the liquid does not boil. The timing will depend on the thickness of the breast halves. Use tongs to transfer to the chicken to a plate to cool. Stir the barley into the soup; increase the heat to medium-high. Once the broth comes to a boil, reduce the heat to medium or medium-low to maintain a low boil. Partially cover and cook until the barley is tender, 40 to 45 minutes. When the chicken is cool to the touch, pull the meat off the bone; discard the bones and any visible fat. Tear the meat into large chunks, about 2 inches or so. Once the barley is tender, discard the dill sprigs. Return the chicken to the pot; add the remaining chopped dill, stirring to combine. Taste, and adjust the seasoning as needed. Serve hot.

Telephone companies are quietly balking at the idea of changing how they collect and store Americans’ phone records to help the NSA’s surveillance programs. They’re worried about their exposure to lawsuits and the price tag if the U.S. government asks them to hold information about customers for longer than they already do.

Poor reception Phone firms balk at proposed spy data shift By STEPHEN BRAUN The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Telephone companies are quietly balking at the idea of changing how they collect and store Americans’ phone records to help the National Security Agency’s surveillance programs. They’re worried about their exposure to lawsuits and the price tag if the U.S. government asks them to hold information about customers for longer than they already do. President Barack Obama is expected to announce Friday what changes he is willing to make to satisfy privacy, legal and civil liberties concerns over the NSA’s surveillance practices. One of the most important questions is whether the government will continue to collect millions of Americans’ phone records every day so that the government can identify anyone it believes might be communicating with known terrorists. The president’s hand-picked review committee has recommended ending the phone records program as it exists. It suggested shifting the storage of the phone records from the NSA to phone companies or an unspecified third party, and it recommended new legal requirements before the government could search anyone’s phone records. The phone companies don’t want the job. Executives and their lawyers have complained about the plan in confidential meetings with administration officials and key congressional intelligence and other committees, according to interviews by

The Associated Press. Two phone executives familiar with the discussions said the cellular industry told the government that it prefers the NSA keep control over the surveillance program and would only accept changes if they were legally required. The executives spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to disclose the private discussions. But there have been public complaints, too. “Our members would oppose the imposition of data retention obligations that would require them to maintain customer data for longer than necessary,” said Jot Carpenter, vice president of government affairs for CTIA-The Wireless Association, the trade group for the cellular phone industry. Obama’s Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technologies was expected to discuss the dilemma over the phone records program Tuesday at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. The committee will play an important role in any new legislation on the issue. Executives and industry lawyers said phone companies would reluctantly agree to become the stewards of the phone records only if current laws were changed relieving them of legal responsibilities and paying their costs. The industry is also wary of NSA insistence that the records would need to be standardized and probably held for longer periods than most firms now keep them. Liability is a key concern for phone companies, which could be sued if hackers or others were able

to gain unauthorized access to the records. Under the Patriot Act, which governs the NSA’s phone collection program, the phone companies are free of legal responsibility for disclosing customer records to the government in counterterrorism investigations. Industry lawyers say similar protections could be broadened to cover phone companies holding customer data for the NSA, but it’s unclear whether Congress would pass them. A former top NSA lawyer and Bush administration national security official who has represented phone firms, Stewart Baker, said Congress only grudgingly granted legal protections to the phone companies in the immediate years after the 9/11 attacks. “The phone companies were seared by their experience in Congress and can’t be enthusiastic about a return engagement,” Baker said. Even with broader legal protections, the companies would expect to cope with a surge in demands for business records from local prosecutors, private lawyers, insurance firms and others. Companies already retain some customer records, but the duration of their storage and the kinds of records they keep vary. While T-Mobile keeps records for seven to 10 years, according to a recent Senate Commerce Committee study, other major firms – including Verizon, US Cellular and Sprint – keep them less than two years.

WASHINGTON – Americans bought more clothes in December, shopped more frequently online and ate out more often, providing a boost to economic growth at the end of the year. But sales at most traditional stores declined, as the holiday shopping season ended on a lackluster note. Retail sales rose 0.2 percent last month, the Commerce Department said Tuesday. That follows strong gains in October and November, helped by healthy auto sales. In December, car and truck sales fell 1.8 percent due to colder weather and Black Friday discounts that moved some sales into November. The decline held back overall retail spending that did show some signs of underlying strength. Excluding spending on autos, gas and building supplies, retail sales rose a solid 0.7 percent. Economists say this figure is a

Retail sales rose 0.2 percent last month, the Commerce Department said Tuesday. That follows strong gains in October and November, helped by healthy auto sales. better proxy for confidence in the economy, because it does not include the most volatile categories. The report showed less spending at traditional holiday outlets. But the December gain should be enough to help generate 3 percent annualized growth in the final three months of 2013, said Paul Dales, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics. “If we’re right in thinking that the underlying trend in jobs growth is still

improving, households will continue to spend more freely in 2014,” Dales said. Many Americans are changing the way they shop during the holidays. Online sales grew 1.4 percent in December after a 1.6 percent gain in November. Consumers also spent more at clothing stores, grocers and restaurants last month. Still, consumers spent less at the types of stores usually measured for holi-

day shopping. Furniture and electronics purchases fell last month. And sales at department stores fell a whopping 0.7 percent in December – and 3.3 percent for the full year. For all of 2013, total retail sales rose 4.2 percent, the weakest gain in four years. The retail sales report is the first look at last month’s consumer spending, which accounts for about 70 percent of all economic activity. Businesses had been anticipating that consumer spending would perk up to propel growth going forward. Gains in consumer spending during October and November pointed toward strong growth to close out the year, as did increases in factory activity. Auto purchases surged until December, when they were basically flat compared with a year ago. Still, for the year, car sales rose 8 percent to 15.6 million. That’s the best pace since 2007, before the Great Recession began.

JPMorgan 4Q profit falls 7 percent on legal costs NEW YORK – JPMorgan Chase said Tuesday its profits fell 7 percent in the fourth quarter, hampered by more legal woes and a decline in the bank’s investment banking business. The bank reported net income of $5.28 billion in the last three months of 2013, down from $5.69 billion in the same period a year earlier. On a per-share basis, JPMorgan said it earned $1.30 a share in the quarter, compared with $1.39 a share a year earlier. The bank’s revenue fell 1 percent to $24.1 billion. The bank’s most recent results had several one-time items, including a 27-cent-pershare charge related to legal expenses. On an adjusted basis, the bank said it earned $1.40 per share. One of those legal expenses was the settlement over the bank’s involvement in the Ponzi scheme of Bernard Madoff. The bank agreed Jan. 8 to pay $1.7 billion to settle criminal charges stemming from its failure to report its concerns about Madoff’s private investment service. “It was in the best interests of our company and shareholders for us to accept responsibility, resolve these issues and move forward,” JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon said in a statement.

Continued from page E1 The government keeps Americans’ phone records for at least five years before destroying them. Obama’s review committee said phone companies could hold the same data for two years before destroying them. NSA officials have said they could compromise no lower than three years but want all the data to be standardized. “The data has to be provided or kept in a way that allows it to be integrated” by the NSA, said the agency’s general counsel, Rajesh De, during a November hearing of the semiindependent Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, another task force examining the surveillance program. Currently, phone companies differ in what they keep on file. For example, according to Justice Department records, Verizon maintains calling-detail records over a rolling year, disposing of them once a year passes. Sprint and Nextel keep them 18 to 24 months, while T-Mobile and AT&T divide the records into

pre-paid and post-paid categories, with different durations. Standardizing such a variety of reporting and storage requirements and holding so much more data would cause phone companies to expand their collection infrastructure and hire more lawyers and technical staff to respond to the NSA’s needs. “It would be enormously costly and burdensome to set up and implement,” said Michael Sussmann, a Washington attorney who specializes in technology and national security issues. “However you change the system, they would have to handle a greater set of data than they collected before. And more people – of all sorts – will come looking for it.” The cost could be high. Last week, the chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Sen. Diane Feinstein, D-Calif., said it would cost at least $60 million to shift the records for the NSA program to phone providers. Feinstein opposes such a shift. Keeping the records at phone companies so they could be readily searched by the government won’t satisfy privacy advocates, either.

NEW YORK – More Target-sized security breaches will happen if banks and retail stores don’t start working together to further protect customers’ data, JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon said Tuesday. JPMorgan has replaced 2 million credit and debit cards as a result of the breach, said Dimon in his first public comments about the event. The bank has replaced nearly all the affected cards. JPMorgan is the world’s largest issuer of credit cards. Dimon expects that cybercrimes such as the Target breach will become more common if retailers and banks do not work on security, he said. “This story is not over, unfortunately,” Dimon said in a conference call with investors following the bank’s fourth-quarter earnings announcement. In December, Target said 40 million credit and debit card accounts – including customers’ card numbers, expiration dates, debit-card PINs and the embedded code on the magnetic strip on the back of cards – were stolen

More Target-sized security breaches will happen if banks and retail stores don’t start working together to further protect customers’ data, JPMorgan Chase’s CEO Jamie Dimon said Tuesday. in a data breach that happened between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15. Last week, the company disclosed that hackers stole an additional trove of data affecting 70 million people. That data included names and phone numbers as well as email and mailing addresses. The company said there is some overlap between the two data sets.

It is the second-largest theft of shoppers’ credit card data, following the theft of 90 million customers’ data from discount retailer TJX in 2007. Dimon said the bank hasn’t seen a reduction in consumer spending due to the breach, and there are no signs that consumers moved to other forms of payment,

like cash or checks. The breach is not expected to affect JPMorgan’s financial results, a company spokeswoman said. Dimon, who had not publicly commented on Target’s breach until Tuesday, said he expects that banks will issue cards with more security features on them in the future.

When an average golfer gets a birdie (one under par), it is anticipated that he will make a mess of the next hole. But not a pro. However, what do you think is the worst score by a pro immediately after making a hole in one? In golf, you try to place your ball well for your next shot. This also applies in bridge. Are your cards meshing well or badly with partner’s hand? Look only at the North hand. South opens one heart, North raises to two hearts, and South rebids two spades. What should North do now? Before you answer that question, what does South’s two-spade rebid show? It indicates a hand too strong to pass out two hearts, but too weak to jump to four hearts. He is showing four spades and a hand with six losers (here, one spade, one heart, three diamonds and one club). South is asking North to look in particular at his holdings in the majors. North has a useful spade queen, four trumps

(a nine-card it is much better than an eight-carder) and an ace. Yes, he has only seven high-card points and 4-3-3-3 distribution, but since his hand has those three pluses, he should jump to four hearts.

CROSSWORD

HOROSCOPE

! !

TODAY - Progressive motion will get you where you want to go in the coming months. Expect emotional issues to be brought out into the open. Clear up any matter that is keeping you from getting what you want. Use emotional tactics to win personal battles. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Keep everything out in the open so you can deal with issues as they arise. You must clear up any misunderstandings with alacrity. Turn a negative into an opportunity. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Don’t waste the day. There is too much to do, and too little time. Secrets are apparent, and they must be considered before you make a decision based on limited information. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Take a chance and try something unique. Offer help and look for ways to utilize what you have to offer in more diverse ways. Romance will lead to happiness. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Avoid altercations. Partnership problems will escalate if you aren’t willing to compromise. A common-sense approach to work and money will pay off. Keep your life simple. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Take a chance, and present what you have to offer. Showing your skills and expertise will be far more effective than talking about them. Actions speak louder than words. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You’ll be tempted by an offer that may not be legitimate or that is based on hearsay rather than facts. Step back before you suffer a loss. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Relationships, partnerships and mingling with people who share your interests and concerns will bring about unusual and exciting opportunities. Love is on the line, and romance will seal the deal. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Watch your back today, especially when dealing with financial, legal or medical issues. Take some time to confabulate with trusted allies before taking a chance on someone or something you know too little about. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your suggestions will be well-received. Do your best to help out, but don’t let anyone take you for granted. Friendships will grow, and people from your past will reappear. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Stay calm and rely on your knowledge and ability to deliver information with intelligence and passion. Don’t allow anger or emotional tension to come between you and your goals. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Enjoy the moment, take part in unique activities and develop relationships that will be of use to you in the future. Alterations to your living arrangements will be comforting. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Keep an eye on your personal papers and concerns. Be prepared to make a sudden and unexpected move should anyone stand between you and your goals. Protect your assets.
