Commission to take up revised plan for CL South bleachers By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com

Replaced floor tile is seen in a first-grade classroom Thursday at Dundee Highlands Elementary School in West Dundee. Algonquin-based Community Unit School District 300 has been patching the tiles at Dundee Highlands on an as-needed basis since a $35 million capital development grant from the state failed to materialized. The district hopes to finish up the projects identified in that grant through a new low-interest bond program being funded with federal stimulus dollars.

Aging school infrastructure Uncertainty makes planning for capital projects difficult, district officials say By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com ALGONQUIN – The floor tiles at Dundee Highlands Elementary School look like a poorly designed patchwork quilt. The bathrooms need to be updated, and the roof needs to be repaired. Algonquin-based Community Unit School District 300 had planned to complete these projects about a decade ago when it applied for, and was picked to

receive, a $35 million state grant that never came. Some of the work has been completed as needed over the years, but the district still has a lengthy list of projects, many that date back to 2004, but some that are new, estimated to cost a total of $31 million, said Susan Harkin, the district’s chief operating officer. The list also includes additions to four of its buildings, 10 classrooms at Carpentersville Middle

They also want to keep the west bleachers at their current height of nine rows, five fewer rows than existed before the renovation and about a third fewer than what the new bleachers had, according to city documents.

Prisoner release weakens argument against lifting sanctions • REPUBLICANS

Continued from page A1 Tehran eased its grip. Its missile program has violated existing U.N. prohibitions, it supports terrorist groups and it has remained a key ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad, they say. But Saturday was a clear reminder of the forces working against the Republican contenders on Iran. The release of Americans – four of them negotiated as a prisoner swap alongside nuclear talks and one worked out separately – removed a key argument that the U.S. should not lift sanctions while Americans are being held. Meanwhile, the U.S. and other Western nations declared Iran had kept up its end of the landmark nuclear agreement completed last summer, triggering the removal of the billions of dollars in economic sanctions and beginning to open up the gates for international businesses. “Today marks the first day of a safer world,” Secretary of State John Kerry said.

Count On Me...

Republicans did not see the moment of as an achievement. While they gently praised the return of the Americans, they blasted the release of Iranian prisoners by the U.S. as part of the swap. “While we celebrate their return,” Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said of the released Americans, “this deal serves as piece of propaganda for both Iran and the Obama administration.” Cruz reprised his promise to “rip to shreds this catastrophic Iran nuclear deal.” Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said he saw “weakness” in the Obama administration’s dealings with Iran. “Let’s take a step back here,” Bush told a town hall meeting in New Hampshire. “The bigger issue is that we’ve legitimized a regime who shows no interest in actually moving toward the so-called community of nations.” In truth, the U.S. has not been alone in shifting its pose toward Iran, which is part of what would make undoing it difficult. The nuclear deal was negotiated alongside France, Britain, Germany, Russia and China, a coalition that managed

to hang together through lengthy discussions and difficult domestic politics. Since then, Iran has joined in international talks seeking an end to the Syrian civil war. White House officials say they see those talks as a test of whether other conversations are possible. Some Republicans have acknowledged it may be difficult to cut off these ties. Bush has said “maybe we should check with our allies” before shredding the deal. Donald Trump, playing up his skills as a boardroom broker, has suggested he would renegotiate the nuclear deal. But others, including Marco Rubio and Cruz, have put tearing up the deal on their Day 1 to-do list. What would happen on Day 2 is unclear. In a global economy, imposing unilateral U.S. sanctions would have limited impact on Iran and could serve to disadvantage U.S. businesses. Iran has suggested businesses are waiting at the gates to engage – indeed, the transport minister on Saturday announced a deal with the European consortium Airbus to buy 114 passenger planes after sanctions are lifted.

Widow requests abatement Board to consider relief of county portion of property tax bill for slain sheriff’s deputy’s family By KEVIN P. CRAVER kcraver@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – The McHenry County Board on Tuesday night will abate the county government’s share of property taxes for the widow of fallen sheriff’s Deputy Dwight Maness. State law allows counties and

municipalities to abate some or all of their share of the property tax bill for the widow of a soldier, police officer, firefighter or other rescue worker killed in the line of duty. McHenry County has had the ordinance on its books since 2008. Maness and fellow deputy Khalia Satkiewicz were shot in October 2014 after respond-

ing in the early morning hours of Oct. 16, 2014, to a report of a domestic incident at the home of Scott B. Peters, who fired more than a dozen rounds at them with a semiautomatic rifle. Maness, who underwent 15 surgeries and was eager to rejoin the force, died last September at age 47 after suffering cardio-pulmonary arrest

during rehabilitation therapy. His widow, Susan, applied for the abatement for the McHenry home they shared. The law only allows the county to abate its levy – county government typically averages 10 percent of a residential property tax bill.

Missing McHenry County Woodstock looks teen found shot in Phoenix into partnerships to The ASSOCIATED PRESS PHOENIX – Police say a teenage girl from McHenry County reported missing was found shot in Phoenix and the man she was believed to be with has taken his own life. As of Saturday afternoon, Phoenix Police Sgt. Vincent Lewis said the 16-year-old was in extremely critical condition and was not expected to survive. Police did not release the teen’s identity. Lewis told the Northwest Herald he did not know the name of the girl’s hometown or which agency originally reported her miss-

ing. After receiving information, police were checking on a possible location for the girl and her boyfriend, 24-year-old Alexander O’Neill, on Friday night when the shooting occurred. The two had arrived in Arizona on Friday from Illinois where it is believed O’Neill picked up the teen, Lewis said. According to Lewis, officers went to a home near 43rd Avenue and Cactus Road twice. They were speaking with O’Neill’s parents outside the door during the second visit when shots were heard. Lewis said officers found

the girl critically injured and O’Neill, who suffered a fatal, self-inflicted wound. The shooting remains under investigation. The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office was notified of the incident Friday night, Sheriff’s Deputy Aimee Knop said in a message to the Northwest Herald. “The sheriff’s office is responding to all requests from the Phoenix [Police Department] concerning this investigation and will continue to do so,” she said.

The complex alerted residents they would need to pick up a sticker and display it on their cars in the lot or risk being towed, she said. “Basically, at this point, our signs are there to patrol a property that I really can’t tow off of, other than an abandoned vehicle,” Dye said. Dye said she has concerns about whether property owners will be able to stop cars from parking in their spaces during festivals, fireworks or other events. “Any private property parking does not have a right to have vehicles removed from parking lots, whether it be business or residential,” Dye said. “They kind of overrode every private property owner’s rights.”

LAKEMOOR – One tow truck operator is concerned that a new village ordinance requiring private property owners to give advance notice before towing will infringe on property rights in the village. An ordinance passed at the Dec. 17 board meeting includes a stipulation that property owners who use a commercial towing operation to remove unauthorized vehicles must post a bright orange sticker that measures 3-by-5 inches or larger on the car to notify the owner the vehicle is parked illegally. The ordinance says the vehicle can be towed if it is not moved within 24 hours of the sticker being applied. The ordinance does not affect

the ability of the police to order vehicles be removed, and it does not apply if a vehicle is blocking an entryway to private property or it it poses a safety hazard. Village Administrator David Alarcon said the ordinance was enacted in response to two complaints the village received from residents at The Meadows apartment homes. Donna Dye, who owns Best Way 24 Hour Towing in McHenry, said a contract she had with The Meadows will be rendered useless by the ordinance. She said her company entered the contract in September after four months of discussion with The Meadows. Dye said the 496-unit apartment complex was getting daily complaints from residents who had no place to park when they returned from work because visitors were not

Peters was sentenced last year to 135 years in prison • COUNTY BOARD

Continued from page A3 Peters was sentenced last year to 135 years in prison – prosecutors decided against pursuing murder charges after Maness’ death. Satkiewicz returned to the force in October. Also on the County Board’s agenda is approving changes to its Unified Development Ordinance to comply with a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that significantly loosens what governments can regulate regarding signs. The changes exempt a number of types of signs from regulation, and eliminates any classification of sign based on its content, such as signs for real estate, events or for political candidates. While the law long has held that the First Amendment forbids content-based regulation of signs, the 9-0 ruling last year by the high court’s justices takes the protection a step further – they concluded that the very act of classifying sign

types for regulatory purposes is unconstitutional. A memo from the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office summarized that any ordinance that requires a sign be read in order to be enforced likely would violate the new guidelines. In other business Tuesday, the County Board also will vote to increase the private-pay rates for Valley Hi Nursing Home by $5 for each category. Daily rates would increase to $235 for level one skilled care, and $245 a day for level two skilled care. Board members also will vote to create a new rate of $255 a day effective April for residents needing the most care, and will discuss creating a new option by which a private-pay resident can have his or her own room without a roommate for an additional $175 a day. Private-pay residents account for a small number of beds at the county-owned nursing home west of Woodstock, with the majority covered by Medicare or Medicaid.

Woodstock currently budgets about $1M for street work • WOODSTOCK

Continued from page A3 Representatives from Cary, Crystal Lake, McHenry, Algonquin and Lake in the Hills attended the Tuesday meeting, Wilson said. Erik Morimoto, Cary public works director and village engineer, said he spoke at the meeting about the Municipal Partnering Initiative, a partnership that collaborates on joint bids to save money on public works and construction projects. Cary has been part of the MPI, which includes more than 30 communities primarily in Lake and northern Cook counties, for three years. Morimoto said benefits to putting out joint bids include spreading the administrative work load and better unit costs

because of a higher volume of projects. He said although the meeting mostly focused on paving roads and surface management, joint bids can be useful for any project. “Whether it’s expensive or inexpensive, it’s good to get more quality and volume in your bid just to get that better pricing,” Morimoto said. Woodstock currently budgets about $1 million for street work, which Mayor Brian Sager has said is not enough to repair all the streets. Wilson said Woodstock joining the MPI is something the city will look into more before making any decisions. He said more meetings such as this will be scheduled and open to other communities. “I just think it’s a good thing that’s coming about here, and it’s going to help us all in the future,” Wilson said.

Funding for repairs on aging buildings tough to get • INFRASTRUCTURE

Continued from page A1 School, four at the deLacey Family Center in Carpentersville, and eight classes each at Gilberts Elementary School and Hampshire’s Wright Elementary School, according to district documents. The District 300 school board signed off earlier last week on an application for Qualified School Construction Bonds, a state-managed program that uses federal funds to finance low-interest loans to help school districts pay for capital improvements. The Crystal Lake Elementary School District 47 board gave approval earlier in the month to also apply for the bonds, although neither district knows yet if they’ll be selected to participate. School districts that can take advantage of the bonds – ones that have shovel-ready projects and don’t need to go out to referendum – are jumping at the funding mechanism. “Capital projects in general are hard just because aging buildings are one thing that is very difficult at times [to get funded through] a referendum,” said Cathy Nelson,

Students walk down the hallway Thursday at Dundee Highlands Elementary School in West Dundee. Algonquin-based Community Unit School District 300 has been patching the tiles at Dundee Highlands on an as-needed basis since a $35 million capital development grant from the state failed to materialized. The district hopes to finish up the projects identified in that grant through a new low-interest bond program being funded with federal stimulus dollars. District 47’s assistant superintendent of business services. “With the economy and everything else, passing a referendum is very difficult for school districts in general.” And there’s not a lot of other ways to pay for the projects. The state used to fund a grant program specifically aimed at capital improvements and maintenance, but historically reliable money stopped coming in 2004, the

year District 300 was set to receive it, Harkin said. Districts also can apply for energy efficiency grants through the state’s Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, but the grant is limited to projects such as switching to energy-efficient lighting, Nelson said. Cary School District 26 looked into the grants for part of the $2.5 million worth of

improvements slated for this summer – the projects still need to go out for bid and require final approval from the school board – but the project didn’t qualify, Director of Finance and Operations Jeffrey Schubert said. District 26 won’t be going out for the bond program to pay for its project, Schubert said. With $34 million in bonds still outstanding and about a decade left to pay them, the district has focused on saving up for particular projects and then completing them, a parking lot last year and a roof the year before that. The improvements laid out for this year are a bit bigger than they normally do, he said. The plan includes a renovation of Briargate Elementary School, including the installation of schoolwide air conditioning, the accompanying asbestos work, floor replacements, and addressing some plumbing and building code issues. Saving, however, can be tough with the state of the state, Schubert said. School officials are hesitant to spend money they may need for operations or to cover pension costs in future years. “We don’t know, so it’s hard to plan,” he said.

The changes would leave the west bleachers with 958 seats and would grow the east bleachers to 2,303 seats for a total of 3,261 seats, less than the current number of just less than 4,000 seats, but more than the 2,000 or so seats that existed before the expansion. The proposal also includes a privacy fence at the top of the west bleachers and a landscape buffer as requested by

Tom Burney, the attorney representing neighboring property owners, and while the city’s proposed restrictions include a requirement that the speakers face east, they did not include the decibel restrictions Burney has sought, the documents show. City staff also has proposed as one of its restrictions a requirement that the district relocate the buses and enter into a contract with nearby St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church to provide more parking for large-scale events.

Management from Texas A&M University. He married Amy Purvis on May 25, 1996 in Austin, Texas, and they raised two wonderful daughters, Jane and Maria. For three decades Tom was a university professor and administrator, first at Texas A&M and then at the University of Wyoming. In 2012, he moved to a 17-acre farm in Monticello to become, as he proudly said, a “gentleman farmer.” Tom was a world-renowned naturalist, conservationist, ecologist and humanist. His expertise in forestry and watershed management was in high demand all over the world. He worked in 49 countries, from the outback in Australia and the savannahs of Africa to the plantations of India and the hillsides of Honduras -- and many other points in between, including China, Pakistan, and Iceland. He spent little time in capital cities, venturing instead to remote outposts. Tom loved teaching and mentoring, and his students loved him. In 2012, he received the Outstanding Undergraduate Teaching Award from the Society for Range Management, a national award. Over 29 years, his teaching involved a total of 6618 student semester credit hours. His excellence in research was recognized in 1999 when he was awarded Texas A&M University International Excellence Award. Through his work, Tom bettered the lives of millions of people around the world. Yet his professional reach was surpassed by his personal touch. He embraced all that life offered with an uncommon warmth, a generosity of spirit and a hearty laugh. He inspired family, friends, colleagues and all those he encountered, and he will continue to inspire by the examples he set and the words he spoke. His lasting wisdom ranges from the best way to approach a spitting cobra to a homily for living a grace-centered life. Tom found wonder and beauty in the soaring flight of a hawk, the nest of a robin, the song of meadowlark. Ornithology was a lifelong passion, as were hiking, fishing and keeping up with international news. Though he was a consummate world traveler, his favorite place was always home, with Amy, Jane, Maria and their dog Max. Tom is survived by his wife of nineteen years, Amy; his daughters, Jane and Maria; his mother, Laura; and his brother, Roger. He was preceded in death by his father, George; and his brother (as an infant), Paul. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 23, 2016, at St. James Evangelical Lutheran Church, 427 S.

Less openness the last thing Illinois needs Gov. Bruce Rauner’s task force to streamline government and lessen costs came out with its report earlier this month. The group’s official name is the Local Government Consolidation and Unfunded Mandates Task Force. Nowhere in that name do we see anything about reducing the people’s right to know what their government is up to. That would be the end result, For the record however, of one proposal to give Some government officials local governments apparently believe the money the option to post they must spend to keep the public notices onpublic informed about their line, rather than activities through public notice in local newspaadvertising is not worth it. pers. Public notice advertising protects the public’s right to know what local governments are doing – when they meet, what they spend their money on, when budget hearings are planned, what public works projects they are seeking bids for, when they plan to hold elections and so forth. Some government officials apparently believe the money they must spend to keep the public informed about their activities through public notice advertising is not worth it. If their goal is to keep more of the public in the dark, they might be right. (Public notices are billed at a discounted ad rate, by the way). Their proposal would replace public notice advertising with postings of information on government-controlled websites, which are viewed by far fewer people than those who read newspapers. The poor, elderly, minorities and the disabled are less likely to have online access, so they could be effectively blocked from that information. Another problem with this proposal is local governmental websites have shaky compliance records about posting information that, by law, they already are required to post. The Citizens Advocacy Center studied more than 750 websites of public bodies in Illinois. Only 73 percent complied with posting notices of upcoming meetings; 57 percent complied with posting proposed meeting agendas; and 48 percent complied with posting approved meeting minutes. Would local governments’ compliance records for posting public notices be any better? We doubt it. The public should not be forced to hunt through county, city, school district, park district, township, community college, library district, fire protection district, and other government websites for public notices that may or may not even be there – not when the current system works much better. Along with finding public notices printed regularly in local newspapers, the public also can find them on a website operated by Illinois newspapers for the past five years – publicnoticeillinois.com. The one-stop, free-access, searchable website has copies of all public notices printed in Illinois newspapers. This one-two punch is a powerful, efficient tool for Illinoisans who want to keep an eye on how their hard-earned tax dollars are spent. After all, corruption and government have too often gone hand in hand in our state – much to the dismay and disgust of the public. Less transparency about the workings of government is the last thing Illinois needs.


New dietary guidelines Every five years, the federal departments of Agriculture and the Health and Human Services jointly release a set of recommendations for a healthy diet, similar to what any reasonable parent might suggest. Yet Americans routinely ignore the recommendations. So why is the arrival of yet another set of dietary guidelines worth noting? First, the guidelines suggest a 10 percent cap on the calories that come from sugar added to foods, a much stricter limit than in previous versions, and recommend that males consume less protein derived from animals – not just red meat. These recommendations are meaningful because, despite the title, the dietary guidelines help determine what’s served in federal food assistance and school meal programs that serve millions of Americans. Second is that for the first time since the recommendations began in 1980, the feds have gone farther than just making a list of the elements of a healthy diet. This round, the nutrition panel took a broader look at the patterns of food consumption globally. Lawmakers funded a peer-reviewed study by the National Academy of Medicine of the science behind the dietary guidelines. The added research can only improve the next recommendations.

IT’S YOUR WRITE Walters for recorder

To the Editor: I was amused when I read county recorder candidate Joe Tirio’s statement about abolishing the position after he is elected. That twist has been used in the past by township government enemy Bob Anderson when he ran for office in McHenry Township. The office of recorder is one of the most important in county government. That office protects your property, deeds, trusts and property transfers. They have a tight security system in place to notify you if anyone is attempting anything illegal or improper in your name or against your property or trusts. It is obvious Tirio is not familiar with the workings of the recorder’s office. The only candidate who knows that office is Joni Smith. She works under Recorder Phyllis Walters and knows the office and how it runs. Her honesty, integrity and experience make her the best possible choice for county recorder.

the governor and legislative leaders for their inaction and inability to solve the budget crisis. Franks criticized not only the governor, but also the speaker of the House. No one in Illinois politics stands up to power and fights for the taxpayers like Franks. Franks didn’t just criticize the leaders, he also proposed concrete solutions to solve the fiscal problems facing Illinois. He asked the governor to call back to Springfield both the Senate and House of Representatives so the legislature can discuss the budget, instead of simply allowing the leaders to play politics while our state crumbles. He presented a common sense solution to the budget that will cut state spending while updating our tax code and balancing our budget without any tax increases. That is the kind of leadership Illinois needs: someone who cares about the citizens and who doesn’t play political games. If Franks were

Portraying GOP in a bad light To the Editor My good liberal friend, Stan Perrin, unwittingly described President Barack Obama in his letter in the Jan. 4 “It’s Your Write.” I’m pretty sure he was trying to portray the Republicans in a bad light. He always does. One caveat, though, in describing our current president in his last sentence, he mentioned “one’s soul.” I haven’t seen much of one with this commander in chief. Dan Berg

Hillary Clinton once again slip slidin’ away “Slip slidin’ away Slip slidin’ away You know the nearer your destination The more you’re slip slidin’ away.” – Paul Simon It’s happening again. The “inevitability” of Hillary Clinton’s presidential candidacy may not be so inevitable after all. Unlike eight years ago when Barack Obama beat her for the Democratic nomination and ultimately won the office Hillary and her supporters believed she was entitled to, this time her main opponent is not just Sen. Bernie Sanders, a socialist, it is Hillary Clinton herself. Serious media and congressional investigations into Richard Nixon’s Watergate crimes did not begin until after his landslide win in 1972. In Hillary Clinton’s case, damaging investigations are occurring in the middle of her campaign. Catherine Herridge, chief intelligence correspondent for the Fox News Channel, reports: “The FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of private email as secretary of state has

VIEWS Cal Thomas expanded to look at whether the possible ‘intersection’ of Clinton Foundation work and State Department business may have violated public corruption laws, three intelligence sources not authorized to speak on the record told Fox News. This track is in addition to the focus on classified material found on Clinton’s personal server.” As Investors.com notes, “Hillary Clinton’s support among Democrats nationally has taken a serious tumble, falling eight points to 43 percent, according to the latest IBD/TIPP Poll. Support for her chief rival, Bernie Sanders, rose six points to 39 percent. As a result, Clinton’s lead over Sanders, which had been 18 points, is now just four points.” According to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal/ Marist College poll, Clinton and Sanders are in tight races in

both Iowa and New Hampshire. With less than three weeks before the Iowa caucuses, such numbers are not good news for any candidate, especially Hillary Clinton, whose veracity and job record in the various offices and positions she has held are anything but stellar. Very quickly, Clinton has gone from big mo, to slow mo, to no mo. Americans wisely don’t fully trust politicians of either party, but Hillary Clinton suffers more than most. Last August, a Quinnipiac University poll found that only 34 percent of those Americans surveyed believed Clinton is “honest and trustworthy.” Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the poll, reports CNN.com, said Clinton is experiencing a “continuing slide” with how she is “perceived by voters who continue to say she is not honest and trustworthy.” Democrats are likely worried not just about whether Clinton can capture the nomination – and the odds still favor that outcome – but whether she will be further damaged by the FBI investigations and whether that

damage could possibly lead to an indictment, as some Republicans hope. Donald Trump has added to Clinton’s woes by bringing up her husband’s past behavior toward women at a time when she has positioned herself as the women’s champion. Voices are being heard among the political classes about the possibility of replacing Clinton on the Democratic ticket with Vice President Joe Biden should that become necessary. Such a move could severely impair the Democrat’s ability to win the female vote. In a highly unpredictable political year, the Biden scenario would take unpredictability to a new level. I saw a bumper sticker recently that proclaimed the driver was “Ready for Hillary.” With the candidate’s disapproval numbers rising and her approval numbers slip slidin’ away, it doesn’t appear too many other voters are, in fact, ready.

STATE&NATION SUNDAY STATE BRIEFS New Ill. law seeks better data on heroin overdoses

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS – The state is working to get a handle on how many heroin overdoses there are in Illinois under the requirements of a new state law. A local media report said the state health department is developing rules and procedures for collecting information on overdoses as required by the Heroin Crisis Act. Supporters of the law enacted in September say its requirements will lead to a more reliable record of heroin overdoses and deaths. It requires hospitals to report all overdoses, fatal or note, to the state within 48 hours of treatment. Coroners must tell the state what drug caused each overdose death when that can be determined. Advocates say better information will help the state determine the problem’s scope. There were 681 heroin deaths reported statewide in 2014.

Metra bans hoverboards, cites fire concerns

CHICAGO – Metra said it is banning hoverboards because of the potential fire danger from the lithium-ion batteries that power the devices. The commuter rail agency said the two-wheeled scooters no longer will be allowed on its trains. Metra staff will ask people with hoverboards to exit the train. Hoverboards were a hot holiday gift, but major airlines, rail agencies and college campuses have since announced bans. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is investigating reports of hoverboard fires, some of which were captured on video.

Illinois drivers facilities closed for MLK holiday

SPRINGFIELD – Illinois Secretary of State offices will be closed Monday in observance of Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday. Secretary of State Jesse White also announced that drivers’ services facilities typically open from Tuesday through Saturday will be closed Saturday. All offices and agency will facilities will re-open for business Tuesday. People also can visit the secretary of state’s website to find nearby facilities and hours of operation. They also may change addresses, register to become organ donors or renew license plate stickers online.

Autopsy: Woman found dead in Belize strangled

BELIZE CITY, Belize – An autopsy on the body of a U.S. tourist found dead in western Belize has determined that she was strangled to death. The post-mortem report prepared by Dr. Keyden Ken said Anne Swaney was killed by “asphyxia due to compression of the neck area, throttling and blunt force traumatic injuries to the head and neck.” The 39-year-old woman worked for ABC-Channel 7 in Chicago. Her body was discovered floating face-down in the Mopan River, which flows from Belize into Guatemala. Police Superintendent Daniel Arzu told local television Friday night that an unidentified Guatemalan national who was fishing in the area was being questioned but denies any involvement in her death. Swaney was a guest at the Nabitunich resort in the Cayo district when she was reported missing Thursday.

– Wire reports

The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – Nearly two dozen Chicago Police Department employees have been called to testify before a federal grand jury investigating the 2014 death of a black teenager shot 16 times by a white police officer, according to records released to the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times. Among them are four officers whose initial accounts of the confrontation conflict with squad car video showing 17-year-old Laquan McDonald

walking away from officers, rather than turning threateningly toward them. The names of the 23 subpoenaed officers appear on court notification logs released Friday in response to public records requests from the two newspapers. Being called before a grand jury does not necessarily indicate the person is suspected of wrongdoing. The federal grand jury investigation is one of several related to the case. At the state level, Cook County prosecutors charged the officer who opened fire, Jason Van

Leading wellness expert, lecturer and inventor


Some officers on the scene said in initial accounts that he turned or lunged at them threateningly with the knife. The case has outraged protesters and community activists who accuse the police and the city of a cover-up. Mayor Rahm Emanuel has insisted he did not see the video until it was released to the public by a judge’s order over the objections of the city. The logs show the officers began appearing before the grand jury in June and continued to appear as recently as late December.

HALEIWA, Hawaii – Rescuers battled winds of up to 23 mph and waves up to 30 feet Saturday as they searched for 12 Marines who are missing after two helicopters crashed off the Hawaiian island of Oahu. The winds and the waves dispersed the debris and complicated the search, which was expanded Saturday to include waters off Oahu’s west coast. “It makes finding things incredibly difficult,” Coast Guard spokesman Lt. Scott Carr said. The Coast Guard was notified late Thursday of the crash by a civilian who saw the aircraft flying then disappear and a fireball. Someone else reported a flare in the sky, Carr said. It was not clear if the fireball and the flare were the same. The Marines were alerted when the CH-53E helicopters carrying six crew members

each failed to return to their base at Kaneohe Bay following a nighttime training mission. Hours later, a Coast Guard helicopter and C-130 airplane spotted debris 2½ miles off of Oahu. A Navy P-3 airplane was scouring the ocean, along with helicopters from the Coast Guard, Army, Navy and Honolulu police and fire departments. Two Navy warships and two Coast Guard

cutters are on the scene. Honolulu lifeguards on personal watercraft are also looking. The Coast Guard was keeping people out of a wide zone that spanned about 30 miles of shoreline, citing danger from debris. The zone extended from the shore to 8 miles off the coast. National Weather Service meteorologist Derek Wroe said Saturday that the surf peaked Friday afternoon and

is slowly declining. However, a high surf warning remains in effect. The transport helicopters were part of the 1st Marine Aircraft Wing at Marine Corps Base Hawaii. Known as Super Stallions, they are the U.S. military’s largest helicopter, capable of carrying a light armored vehicle, 16 tons of cargo or a team of combat-equipped Marines, according to a Marine Corps website.

Rabecka Cordell picks up a case of bottled water Jan. 2 outside the fire station in Flint, Mich. “We both have lead poisoning,” said Cordell, who learned that two weeks ago from her doctor. She said she has leukemia and her son has learning and speech disabilities. She will not even bathe in Flint water and won’t wash her son in it.

In Flint, Mich., daily life revolves around lead fears The ASSOCIATED PRESS FLINT, Mich. – The longest line at Freeman Elementary School’s Family Fun Night was not for face painting or food. It was for lead testing. For three months, families in the former auto manufacturing hub of Flint have taken their children for blood tests and lived on bottled water after doctors found high levels of lead in the bodies of the community’s youngest people. “It really is a scary situation to know that we can’t get clean drinking water,” said Sherri Miller, who brought her first-grade son, Jameer, to have a finger-prick blood sample tested. “It really is scary to think someone knew about this” and did nothing. Nearly two years have passed since safe drinking water flowed from Flint faucets. The financially troubled city began drawing its water from the Flint River in 2014 to save money. Officials failed to treat the corrosive water properly to prevent metal leaching from old pipes. Residents didn’t learn they were drinking tainted water until the state issued warnings a year and a half after the switch was made. For the city’s 100,000 residents, daily life is now all about lead. Before the crisis, Flint, about an hour north of Detroit, had become a symbol of the decline of the U.S. auto industry, having suffered waves of auto plant layoffs and the loss of half its population. Forty-one percent of the population falls below the poverty line. These days, it’s a place where parents fear for the health of young children, who can develop learning disabilities and behavior problems from lead exposure. “It has such damning, lifelong and generational consequences,” said Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, director of pediatric residency at Hurley Children’s Hospital, where more than 2,000 children have been tested. She is credited with bringing the problem to the public’s attention after state agencies initially dismissed her concerns. “It was frustrating that

it went on for so long,” Hanna-Attisha said, complaining that even since the state began taking action, “everything has been slow.” Gov. Rick Snyder finally acknowledged in late September that the water was unsafe, saying the consequences of switching to Flint River water were not “fully understood.” The decision to use the river was made while a Snyder-appointed emergency manager was running city government. The city, which had been under state supervision since 2011, returned to local control last April. Flint went back to Detroit water in October, but some fear the old pipes were so damaged that they must be replaced, at costs estimated as high as $1.5 billion. On Monday, Snyder apologized to Flint and pledged that officials would contact every household to ensure families have bottled water and a filter, and to check whether they want to be tested for lead exposure. He also promised to seek a long-term solution. “This is a crisis,” the governor said. “So we’re responding appropriately. There’s more work to be done.” Late Thursday, Snyder asked President Barack Obama to issue a federal disaster declaration in an effort to get federal aid. Critics countered that the step should have been taken sooner. After Snyder declared a state of emergency Jan. 5, residents could go to fire stations to pick up a daily ration of one case of bottled water per household and a water filter. But even that effort fell short. The following Monday, a pile of empty filter boxes was stacked against the wall at one station. One woman came back three times in the hope of getting one. Hours later, even the water was gone after volunteers had given out almost 900 cases. For angry residents, it’s still not enough. “The state was telling everybody, ‘It’s fine, relax. ... It’s safe,’” even as people complained that the water looked cloudy and tasted bad, said community activist Melissa Mays. “They lied.”

COLOME, S.D. – Former South Dakota police officer Russell Bertram claimed his young fiancee was shot and killed in a tragic 2009 hunting accident. But state prosecutors said the truth was far more sinister. The 64-year old Bertram is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 26-year-old Leonila Stickney and will stand trial next month. Prosecutors suggest in court filings that the case involves money, jealousy and tangled relationships. Bertram said he was putting his shotgun back into his truck in October 2009 when it went off accidentally, striking Stickney in the abdomen.

But several months later, the victim’s estranged husband, found out that a life insurance company was processing a claim that Bertram had taken out on his fiancee and contacted the South Dakota attorney general’s office’s criminal division.

Prisons group proposes easing rules for solitary confinement are developing the new American Correctional Association standards based on changes they’re pushing at home. A 2014 Colorado law bans the placement of inmates with serious mental illnesses in solitary confinement. That law was enacted after the fatal 2013 shooting of Tom Clements, then the state’s prisons director, by a former inmate who had been released after spending much of his sentence in solitary confinement. Ex-Ohio inmate Johnny Hairston says anything is better than the traditional approach to segregation. Hairston, 59, said he spent many days “in the hole” during 15 years in and out of several Ohio prisons on drug trafficking, forgery and robbery charges. Usually he was sent down for fighting, he says. “I’d always identify myself as the animal,” said Hairston, now a security guard at a Columbus social services agency. “Once you go to the hole, it’s like becoming that animal that people go to Rick Raemisch the zoo to see.” At Belmont Correctional Institution in eastern Ohio, the state is looking at alternatives to the old concept of solitary as Johnny “the jail withHairston in the jail.” In the past, inmates caught using drugs could wait weeks before learning whether they’d end up in solitary. Once there, they stayed in small cells for 23 hours a day with a short break spent in only a slightly bigger holding area for bare-bones recreation like using a pull-up bar. Inmates often just spent their time talking to fellow solitary prisoners. Today, a streamlined system removes such rule breakers from the general prison population much faster. And instead of ending up in a tiny cell with no privileges, they’re housed in a separate, dormitory-style wing and given the chance to take substance abuse programs and other classes. A 90-day sentence can be reduced by a month if inmates accept the educational opportunities.

The ASSOCIATED PRESS ST. CLAIRSVILLE, Ohio – As states rethink the use of solitary confinement to punish unruly inmates, a prisons oversight group is reshaping national accreditation standards to ease such procedures. Proposals range from mandatory health care visits and mental illness treatment for inmates in segregation to more time out of cells for recreation and education. “The punishment that we give to Americans is deprivation of their liberty, but it doesn’t mean that we try to punish them more while their liberty is deprived,” said James Gondles, executive director of the American Correctional Association. In Michigan, the state’s 7-year-old Incentives in Segregation program has led to reductions in misbehavior by inmates whose good behavior is rewarded with privileges in a step system. Last month, New York prison officials agreed to overhaul their use of solitary Gary Mohr confinement, offering a broad slate of reforms aimed at reducing the number of inmates sent to “the box.” In September, California said it would end its unlimited isolation of imprisoned gang leaders, restricting a practice that once kept hundreds of inmates in notorious segregation units for a decade or longer. Also in September, the Association of State Correctional Administrators issued a report calling prolonged isolation of inmates in jails and prisons “a grave problem in the United States.” Critics of rigid solitary confinement say it’s a dehumanizing form of punishment that increases inmates’ anxiety and anger, strips them of social contact necessary to interact safely with others, and makes it harder for inmates to integrate back into the general prison population and, upon release, society. Inmates sent to solitary should be prisoners “we’re afraid of, not mad at,” said Gary Mohr, director of the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction. Mohr and Rick Raemisch, the Colorado prisons director,

LOS ANGELES – The latest in a series of U.S.-European ocean-monitoring satellites is scheduled for launch into orbit Sunday. The Jason-3 satellite will be launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, atop a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket that will then attempt to land its first stage on an unmanned floating barge in the ocean. The satellite has a radar altimeter to bounce microwave energy off the ocean and measure sea level heights, which in turn indicate the warming or cooling of surface waters. The data has practical use in detecting El Nino and its opposite, La Nina, as well as forecasting tropical cyclones and in forecasting.

At least 28 dead after militants seize popular Burkina Faso hotel alities gathered to enjoy life. Here in Ouagadougou, the victims had been grabbing a cold drink outside or staying at one of the capital’s few upscale hotels. In this city with a large aid worker presence, the attackers sought to shoot as many non-Muslims as possible, screaming Allahu akhbar (Arabic for God is great) as they entered. An audio tape was later released by the al-Qaida group claiming responsibility for the carnage. Among the victims from 18 different countries were the wife and 5-year-old daughter of the Italian man who owns the Cappuccino Cafe, where at least 10 people died in a hail of gunfire and smoke after the attackers set the building ablaze before moving on to the Splendid Hotel nearby.


Iran while creating an opening for future cooperation on calming the tumultuous Middle East. But proof that it had been fully implemented had been lacking until Saturday. For Tehran, the report translates into a huge financial windfall while also helping its efforts at international image rehabilitation. Beyond sanctions lifting and the unlocking of frozen assets, certification by the IAEA opens the path to new oil, trade and financial opportunities that could prove far more valuable for Tehran in the long run. Not even waiting for the IAEA report, Iranian Transport Minister Abbas Akhondi said his country had reached a deal with the European consortium Airbus to buy 114 passenger planes once the sanctions are lifted. As diplomatic maneuvering on the nuclear issue dragged into the night, another source of U.S.-Iranian tension moved toward resolution with officials of both nations announcing the prisoner releases. The four Americans imprisoned in Iran were exchanged for seven Iranians held or charged in the United States.

VIENNA – The U.N. nuclear agency certified Saturday that Iran has met all of its commitments under last summer’s landmark nuclear deal, crowning years of U.S.-led efforts to crimp Iran’s ability to make atomic weapons. For Iran, the move lifts Western economic sanctions that have been in place for years, unlocking access to $100 billion in frozen assets and unleashing new opportunities for its battered economy. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and the top diplomats of Iran and the European Union hailed the accord, reached after years of setbacks and a full decade after the start of international diplomacy aimed at reducing the possibility that Tehran could turn its nuclear programs to weapons making. “Today marks the first day of a safer world,” Kerry declared in Vienna. “This evening, we are really reminded once again of diplomacy’s power to tackle significant challenges.” Additionally, Kerry linked the trust built between Iran and the United States over the

past two years of talks to the release by Iran Saturday of four Americans who also hold Iranian nationality. “Thanks to years of hard work and committed dialogue,” he said, “we have made vital breakthroughs related to both the nuclear negotiations and a separate long-term diplomatic effort” that led to the freeing of the Americans. EU Foreign Policy chief Federica Mogherini – in a statement also read in Farsi by Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Jawad Zarif – said the accord “demonstrates that with political will, perseverance, and through multilateral diplomacy, we can solve the most difficult issues and find practical solutions that are effectively implemented.” In Washington, U.S. President Barack Obama signed executive orders lifting economic sanctions on Iran, while Kerry confirmed that the U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency could verify that “Iran has fully implemented its required commitments.” The July 14 deal, struck after decades of hostility, defused the likelihood of U.S. or Israeli military action against

OUAGADOUGOU, Burkina Faso – The Al-Qaida fighters who stormed a popular hangout in Burkina Faso’s capital at dinnertime came with a mission to kill as many people as possible, firing at people as they moved to a nearby hotel and setting the cafe ablaze, survivors and officials said Saturday. When the gunfire stopped after a more than 12-hour siege, at least 28 people had been slain in an unprecedented attack on this West African country long spared the jihadist violence experienced by its neighbors. Like the extremist attacks from Paris to Jakarta, the assailants in the Friday evening attack targeted an area where people from different nation-

Some survivors cowered for hours on the roof or hid in the restaurant’s bathroom to stay alive. Two French and two Swiss citizens were confirmed among the dead late Saturday by the two countries’ foreign ministries. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a statement Saturday that six of the dead were Canadians. Authorities said the four known attackers – all killed by security forces – had come in a car with plates from neighboring Niger. At least two of them were women and one was of African descent. Witnesses said they wore the turbans often worn in the sand-swept countryside of the Sahel, and some spoke in French with an Arabic accent, suggesting some may have come from further north in Africa.

Marengo rebounds from loss

McHenry won’t give in

Indians finish 2-1; R-B, South go 1-2 By JOHN WILKINSON jwilkinson@shawmedia.com ROUND LAKE – The Marengo wrestling lineup was bookended by four impressive performances Saturday at the Round Lake Duals. Landon Pfeiffer (106 pounds), Cameron Mier (113), Kyle Gara (195) and Dylan Turner (285) went undefeated as the Indians finished 2-1 Saturday. Marengo lost its opening dual to Zion-Benton but rebounded with wins over Crystal Lake South and Sycamore. South and Richmond-Burton finished Landon Pfeiffer 1-2. Zion-Benton went 3-0, Sycamore finished 2-1 and Round Lake went 0-3. The Indians’ success started at the lower classes with Pfeiffer (106) and Mier (113) each going 3-0 with two pins. “I think I worked really good on my feet and pushed Kyle Gara the pressure,” Pfeiffer said. “We got the flow going at the lower weights with me and Cameron.” At the heavier end, Gara (195) and Turner (285) also went 3-0, Gara racking up three pins and Turner pinning twice, plus a technical fall. “I think I did well pushing the pressure and staying aggressive,” Gara said. “I was always in the guy’s face, and then as soon as I got him down I went for the pin right away. I didn’t take my time, I just went for it.” Kenny Reed (126) and Bailey Miller (138) also went 2-1 without receiving any forfeits for the Indians (12-3). “It’s real huge,” Marengo coach Tim Keefer said. “It gets them used to when you get down to regionals, sectionals hopefully, and the next one, the big stage, state, hopefully. Because a lot of our kids have the potential, we just have to put it in their head that they’re ready to go.” South started the day with a narrow win over Richmond-Burton, 39-36, its first team win in weeks. “Ultimately, it’s been a while for these guys to walk away with a team W, and I think we needed that for some morale,” Gators coach Ross Ryan said. “We were right in there with Cary-Grove the other night. Things could have easily gone the other way. The week before, we were right there with Loyola Academy and just came up short. So for them to finally put one together and get that was huge for them, especially as we’re wrapping up the dual season right now.”

McHenry overcame a terrible start as it faced a 13-3 deficit after the first 6 minutes of the game.

joestevenson@shawmedia.com BURLINGTON – McHenry forward Colton Klein said the ball just kind of “fell into my hands” at a pivotal moment in the fourth quarter. The Warriors’ nine-point lead about a minute earlier had dwindled to three, and they needed a basket to thwart Maine West’s comeback. Klein expressed confidence in any of his teammates coming through at that point, but with the game he was playing, he clearly was the best choice. The 6-foot-3 junior forward

Rodgers’ heave can’t rescue Green Bay Arizona overcomes Pack’s ‘Hail Mary’ TD By BOB BAUM The Associated Press GLENDALE, Ariz. – Larry Fitzgerald’s brief but brilliant overtime heroics trumped another Aaron Rodgers “Hail Mary” pass, and the Arizona Cardinals escaped with a 26-20 victory over the Green Bay Packers Saturday night to advance to the NFC Championship game. Fitzgerald turned a short pass into a 75-yard gain on the first play of overtime to set up his 5-yard shovel pass reception for the winning score as the crowd chanted “Larry, Larry.” The Cardinals (14-3), the No. 2 seed in the NFC, plays the winner of Sunday’s Seattle-Carolina game for the title. It can’t be as crazy as this one, which unfolded on the same field where the Cardinals beat the Packers in overtime, 51-45, in a wild card game in the 2009 season and where

S. Elgin’s amazing start stuns Marengo OUTSIDE THE BOX SCORE UNSUNG HERO

Indians drop day’s 2nd game after Knobloch scores 40 in victory

Craiton Nice


Marengo, sr., G

Nice hit three 3-pointers and finished with 11 points as the Indians tried to battle back from a huge first-quarter deficit against South Elgin. THE NUMBER


Total 3-pointers hit by Marengo and South Elgin in their game – 12 each.


Marengo guard Zach Knobloch scored a career-high 40 points and tied his career best with nine 3-pointers in the Indians’ first game Saturday, a 64-51 victory over Maine West.

joestevenson@shawmedia.com BURLINGTON – Marengo guard Craiton Nice summed up the Indians’ first quarter against South Elgin quite ... well ... nicely. “Thirty points in the first quarter was a buzzkill,” Nice said. Actually, it was 34 as the Storm came out on fire with eight 3-pointers and 13 of 16 field-goal shooting. Marengo fought back, eventually matching South Elgin’s 12 3s for the game, but that big hole was too much as the Storm won, 79-63, in their second game Saturday at the Burlington Central Martin Luther King Holiday Tournament. “We did great, we didn’t put our


Woodstock co-op’s Zurawski rolls 300 Soph leads 7 local sectional qualifiers NORTHWEST HERALD Woodstock co-op’s Edward Zurawski bowled a six-game series of 1,451, including a 300 game, during the Marengo Regional on Saturday at The Glo-Bowl in Marengo to finish in second place and advance to sectionals. Zurawski, a sophomore, led a group of seven local bowlers who advanced to the Rockford East Sectional on Jan. 23 at Don Carter Lanes in Rockford. Zurawski’s lowest game of the day was a 205. Along with his 300 game, he bowled games of 247, 223 and 257. Trevor Smith of Sycamore won the individual title by 81 pins over Zurawski with a 1,532 series. Smith bowled back-to-back 300 games. Sycamore also took the team title with a 6,608 score. Huntley’s Kyle Sieb finished eighth with a 1,298 total and will be joined at sectionals

by teammates Bailey Manczko (17th, 1,185) and Kevin Sieb (20th, 1,180). McHenry teammates Isaak Carlton (13th, 1,225) and Jarrett Lanway (14th, 1,224) also advanced to sectionals. Marengo’s Jake Barton advanced with a 19th-place finish (1,184). Huntley missed out on advancing as a team by 17 pins, and Woodstock co-op’s Austin Luna missed the last individual qualifying spot by three pins. Vernon Hills Regional: At Brunswick Zone Hawthorn in Vernon Hills, Johnsburg failed to advance any individuals out of the regional. Johnsburg finished 10th as a team with a 5,097 total.

heads down and we kept grinding it out,” Nice said. “Before we went to the locker room, (assistant) coach (J.D.) Peters was like, ‘Nice three quarters, guys.’ ” Marengo (10-6) won its first game, 64-51, over Maine West behind a career-high 40 points from Zach Knobloch. The Indians hit 13 3s in that game, including nine by Knobloch. The Storm (10-8) got four 3s from Matt Smith and three from Justin Howard in the first quarter. Anthony Lynch added another one as South Elgin led, 34-17, after the first quarter. “I’m kicking myself for not trying to jump into man (defense) a little bit sooner,” Indians coach Nate Wright said. “I’m pleased with our effort from beginning to finish. We

scored 17 in the first quarter. You don’t think the other team’s going to score 34.” Wright thought his team reacted well to the adversity. “The kids didn’t complain, they didn’t yell and they were trying to do their best,” Wright said. “We tried to fight back.” The Indians got 19 points from Knobloch, who hit five 3s, and 14 from Michael Volkening. They fell down, 53-33, early in the third quarter but knocked it down to 61-55 on Nice’s 3 with 4:45 remaining in the fourth. “I thought we had it,” said Knobloch, who heated up with four 3s in the second half. “We started fouling and they made their free throws.” Howard led the Storm with 21

points, while Smith added 17 and Quintin McClundon had 16, along with 10 rebounds. Marengo also had to play from behind earlier against Maine West and hit eight 3s in the second half. Knobloch scored 18 in the first half and 22 in the second. His nine 3s tied a career high from last season. “We were playing together and moving the ball, setting good screens and knocking down our shots,” Knobloch said. Nice and Michael Volkening also hit fourth-quarter 3s as the Indians scored 26 in the final quarter. “We always know [Knobloch] is capable of doing that,” Nice said. “We just look for him when he’d doing it and it helps out a lot.”

Warriors show strong free-throw shooting • McHENRY Continued from page C1 “We just nailed it down in practice,” Markgraff said of the Warriors’ free-throw shooting. “There were days when we didn’t leave until each of us made 10 (consecutive) free throws. Once they sent us to the line, we just stepped up and knocked them down. Toughness. We just focused.” McHenry coach Tim Paddock felt poor free-throw shooting cost the Warriors two wins this season. “They can do it, their form’s fine, they do it in practice,” Paddock said. “ A lot of it comes from confidence. They’ve taken some of those lessons playing good teams and come back.” Paddock thinks confidence has been integral in Klein’s development, as well. On Saturday, Klein hit his first six field goals and his first four free throws, missing only one shot in the first half. Behind his 17 first-half points, McHenry took the lead and never trailed again. Klein said the competition, and being guarded by NCAA Division I players at the York Holiday Tournament, helped him. “You find your way to move around the defense and find your way to finish at the basket,” he said. Klein hit five 3s in the Warriors’ victory over Cary-Grove on Friday, so he’s becoming more of an all-around threat. “He’s a competitive kid,” Paddock said. “It’s fun to watch Matthew Apgar – mapgar@shawmedia.com him come out now, you can see McHenry’s James Mulhall shoots in front of Maine West’s Marion Johnson on Saturday at Burlington him confident on the floor.

• WRESTLING Continued from page C1 South 182-pounder Vincent Fontanetta agreed, saying, “It felt great, actually. With having a small team this year, it’s hard to get wins, so that was a morale booster for sure.” The junior was one of two Gators, along with Ethan Weinandy, to go 3-0. Fontanetta had a pin, a decision and a forfeit. “I felt like from bottom I wrestled very well, I was getting up and out every time,” Fontanetta said. “But the thing I want to work on is my feet, because I’m not shooting as much and then sitting in ties and not doing anything.” Anthony Castro (132), Dominik Bolanos (195) and Buddy Gabric (285) went 2-1 for South, which followed the win over R-B with losses to Marengo and Zion-Benton. “They’re coming along, that’s all you can ask,” Ryan said. For R-B, Gavin Sutton (138) and Joey Kaht (145) each went 3-0 with two pins and a forfeit. After dropping their first two duals to South and Sycamore, the Rockets got a 42-24 win over Round Lake. “I’m happy with the weekend, not satisfied. ... There’s always something to work on but there’s a lot of positives out of these guys,” R-B coach Tony Nelson said. “They’re a lot better now than they were in Week 1.”

3-pointers won’t fall for ’Cats NU misses first 17 shots from distance in defeat By SARAH TROTTO The Associated Press EVANSTON – Brandon Taylor scored 19 points, and Donovon Jack had 14 as Penn State beat Northwestern, 71-62, Saturday night. Payton Banks added 10 for the Nittany Lions, who shot 9 for 21 from 3-point range. The Wildcats were 3 of 26 from behind the arc. Tre Demps had 22 points, and Bryant McIntosh and Dererk Pardon added 12 apiece for Northwestern. The Wildcats shot 39 percent from the field and saw their postseason hopes take a hit with a loss to a team in the bottom half of the Big Ten standings. Northwestern (15-4) never has reached the NCAA tournament. The Nittany Lions (11-8, 2-4) had lost four of five and were coming off losses to No. 4 Michigan State and No. 24 Purdue. Penn State entered the game shooting 29.6 percent on 3-pointers, last in the conference. Northwestern had won two straight and 12 of 14. The Wildcats entered the game making 9.1 3-pointers a game on average and were 8-0 when making 10 or more shots from beyond the arc. Jack completed a 3-point play with 15:23 left for a 38-27

Penn State lead. Garner and Taylor each nailed a 3 to extend the lead to 48-31. Demps then hit Northwestern’s first 3-pointer with 10:21 remaining to snap the Wildcats’ 0-for-17 skid from beyond the arc. But Jordan Dickerson answered on the other end with a dunk to keep Penn State ahead, 50-34. Jack hit a jumper to give the Nittany Lions their largest lead at 18. Northwestern went on an 8-0 run to pull within nine before Penn State made 14 of 18 free throws. McIntosh was held under his team-leading 16.1 points per game. He shot 6 of 15 from the field. Demps shot 9 of 20. Penn State led 30-23 at halftime after shooting 6 for 13 from beyond the arc. Northwestern missed all 12 of its 3-point attempts before the break. McIntosh was initially credited with a 3-pointer with 15:18 left, but his foot was inside the line and the call was reversed to a two-pointer. The Wildcats entered the game shooting 37 percent from long distance to rank sixth in the Big Ten. Taylor led the Nittany Lions with 11 points and three 3-pointAP photo ers at the break. The Wildcats shot 28.1 percent from the field Penn State’s Payton Banks drives against Northwestern’s Bryant McIntosh during the first half Saturday in Evanston. to Penn State’s 42.3 percent.


White leads Huskers past off-target Illini By DAVID MERCER The Associated Press CHAMPAIGN – Andrew White III scored 21 points and had 13 rebounds Saturday, and three of his teammates scored in double figures to lead Nebraska past Illinois, 78-67. The win was the third straight for the Cornhuskers (11-8, 3-3 Big Ten). Illinois (9-9, 1-4) lost for the fourth time in five games. Nebraska used a 17-2 run to go up by 10 points late in the first half and never trailed over the game’s final 28 minutes. Glynn Watson Jr. scored 17 for

Nebraska while Tai Webster added 16 and Shavon Shields 14. Illinois relied on the 3-point shot. Thirty-seven of its 59 shots from the field were from 3-point range, but the Illini only made 11 (29.7 percent). Malcolm Hill led Illinois with 17 points and seven assists. Kendrick Nunn added 15 points. White started slowly, scoring six points in the first half. But he had six boards at that point, and turned his offensive game on. With 14:05 left in the game and Illinois trying to claw its way back, he drained a 3-pointer that pushed Nebraska back out to a 51-

39 lead, matching the Cornhuskers’ largest lead of the game to that point. Nebraska outrebounded the Illini 42-24. Illinois starting center Mike Thorne Jr. and starting forward Leron Black are both out for the season, leaving the Illini short on big bodies, and their disadvantage on the boards has been glaring most of the season. Opponents have outrebounded Illinois, 659569, on the season. Illinois’ frustration was obvious Saturday against a Cornhuskers team that started no one taller than 6-foot-7.

Illinois had closed the Nebraska lead to eight points on a 3-pointer by Nunn with six minutes to play and breathed life into what had been a mostly grumbling crowd. But at the other end, Nebraska used two offensive boards to turn two misses into a pair of thirdchance points from White that pushed the lead back to 10 at 67-57 and quieted the State Farm Center. Nebraska went on a 17-2 run late in the first half that turned the game, opening up a double-digit lead in what had been a tight, back-and-forth contest.


W. Michigan hands NIU first conference loss The ASSOCIATED PRESS KALAMAZOO, Mich. – Bryce Moore scored 24 points, as Western Michigan upended Northern Illinois, 83-69, Saturday night, handing the Huskies their first Mid-American Conference loss. Anthony Avery Jr. and Tucker Haymond added 11 points apiece for the Broncos (7-10, 1-3 MAC). Early in the first half, Haymond was fouled from behind by NIU starting guard Travon Baker, setting off a scuffle between the teams. Baker, who has averaged over 12 points per game this season, was ejected. Moore sank three 3-pointers in the first half to help Western Michigan to a 40-28 lead at the break. Avery hit a 3-pointer early in the second half to extend the Broncos lead to 57-37 with 14:00 to play and they cruised to the win. Aaric Armstead scored 15 points with seven rebounds and three assists for the Huskies (14-3, 3-1). The loss ends a seven-game winning streak for NIU. Notre Dame 95, No. 9 Duke 91: At Durham, North Carolina, Bonzie Colson scored a career-high 31 points and grabbed 11 rebounds to lead Notre Dame.

Marian grad Speaker helps Thomas More as assistant When Tanja Speaker goes to practice this season at NCAA Division III Thomas More College in northern Kentucky, she does so with much more clarity than a year ago. Speaker, a Marian Central graduate from Richmond, is a second-year assistant coach for the Saints, the defending national champions in D-III women’s basketball. She also has more confidence in her contributions from the bench for a team that is 12-0 and ranked No. 1 this season entering Saturday. “As a player, you know Tanja Speaker what your role is, and your coach tells you your role,” said Speaker, who played four years as a guard at D-II Florida Southern College. “As a coach, it’s a little more subtle. It’s always that guessing game of, ‘What really is my role?’ It’s great going to practice knowing what [the head coach] expects out of that practice instead of constantly second guessing yourself all the time.” During the Saints’ 33-0 campaign last season, Speaker said she often wondered when and how to speak up. “You wonder, ‘Should I say something? Can I say something?’ ” she said. “When a player makes a mistake, do I yell it out loud so everyone can hear? Do I wait until they come out of the drill and explain it to them on the sideline?” More familiarity with head coach Jeff Hans has boosted Speaker’s confidence. “We’ve had some great conversations and he’s been a great mentor to me,” the 26-year-old Speaker said. “I feel so lucky to be working with him. I definitely have more responsibilities.” Along with additional duties in recruiting and scouting, Speaker has gotten a taste of running the show. She has overseen multiple games as the lead coach of Thomas More’s junior varsity. “That’s been such a huge learning experience,” she said. “It’s great having that in-game experience of talking to referees and making those in-game decisions.” In a game last week at Wittenberg, Speaker said Thomas More pulled off a seven-point victory, the closest margin in any game the program has played this season. “I remember thinking, ‘If we lose, our coach might fire me, and it’s midseason,’ ” she joked. “You definitely feel a lot more pressure than as a player. It can be scary sometimes, but it’s great.” Being involved in late-game situations with the JV team has shown Speaker exactly why she enjoys coaching. It’s exhilarating,” she said. “One of the reasons I love coaching is when you call timeout, you have all these eyes looking at you, wanting the answer. The great thing is having a plan and a guideline for the team and watching them create something better from it.” The program’s varsity team has been dominant, averaging 90.2 points a game and leading the nation in assist-to-turnover ratio. Leading scorer Sydney Moss, a senior guard-forward who was last season’s national player of the year, leads a talented lineup with 19.7 points a game. Sophomore forward Nikki Kiernan (16.1) and sophomore guard Abby Owings (15.7) are among four players scoring in double figures. “We have a lot of individual talent on the team,” Speaker said. “At any given time, we can have five players on the floor that can do something great with the basketball. But they really do play well together.” Working with those players individually is where Speaker has made a big impact. “The head coach’s main concern is how the team is doing as a whole,” she said. “My strength is being able to break things down for each individual player. That’s what I love to do, talking to players 1-on-1 about how they can improve to help the team as a whole.” Carthage contributor Valentine: Senior forward Sean Valentine is averaging career highs of 6.1 points and 3.7 rebounds a game this season as a top reserve for D-III Carthage’s men’s basketball team. The Prairie Ridge grad scored a season-best 15 points Dec. 12 in a 65-53 loss to Wisconsin-Oshkosh. Valentine had a season-high eight rebounds in the same game. Carthage’s 7-8 record this season entering Saturday is only three victories shy of its win total all of last season. On the mat at Michigan: Richmond-Burton grad Garrett Sutton is 6-5 this season as the starting 165-pounder for Michigan’s wrestling team. Sutton, a sophomore for the Wolverines, has four dual meet victories this season for a team that is 6-1 in duals and 2-0 in the Big Ten Conference entering Saturday. • Barry Bottino writes a weekly column about local college athletes for the Northwest Herald.

Panthers say confidence up

Injury? Serena not concerned about knee

By STEVE REED The Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera said the Seattle Seahawks are starting to feel a little like a division opponent. The teams will meet for the sixth time in four years and for the second straight season in the NFC divisional playoffs Sunday. The Seahawks have won four of the previous five matchups, including a 31-17 playoff victory last year in Seattle. But this time it’s a little different. Not only will the game be played in Charlotte, where the top-seeded Panthers (151) have won 11 straight, but the Seahawks face a Carolina team that’s more confident and battled-tested. Some of that stems from Carolina’s 27-23 win over the two-time defending NFC champions in Week 6 when Cam Newton connected on a 26-yard touchdown pass to tight end Greg Olsen with 32 seconds left. The Panthers said that win helped jumpstart their 14-0 start this season and gave them confidence they could beat the best. “It was just a matter of getting over that hump,” said cornerback Josh Norman. It led Panthers safety Ro-

man Harper to declare this week: “We are the better team.” In many ways, the Seahawks and Panthers are mirror images of one another, which may help explain why the last five games have come down to the wire. They both have dynamic quarterbacks who can make plays with their arms and their feet; strong running games led by powerful, bruising backs; and defenses that excel at keeping the opposition out of the end zone. But the most intriguing matchup may be Carolina’s No. 1 scoring offense against Seattle’s defense, which has allowed the fewest points in the league. Newton became the first QB in league history to throw for 35 touchdown passes and run for 10 scores in a season. He’ll face a defense loaded with playmakers. “This is the most diversified offense that we see, and the dynamics of what Cam is able to do and the way that they’re willing to run with him makes this a really difficult offense to prepare for,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said. “You’ve seen everybody have trouble with it all year long, so we’ll see if we can keep it down and try to keep the score within reach and see if we have a chance.”

Pats earn another trip to AFC final

Denver vows not to TE Gronkowski scores 2 TDs in return look past Pittsburgh By JIMMY GOLEN

The Associated Press

By ARNIE STAPLETON The Associated Press DENVER – The Pittsburgh Steelers stagger into Denver with an ailing Ben Roethlisberger, who won’t have his leading rusher or his top receiver against the league’s best defense Sunday. So what? The Steelers (11-6) are deep even without All-Pro receiver Antonio Brown (concussion) and running back DeAngelo Williams (foot), and the Broncos insist Big Ben can go deep even with a sprained throwing shoulder. The Broncos (12-4) swear they won’t make the same mistake they did last year, either. They were in this situation a year ago, coming off a bye and facing a banged-up opponent that was a big underdog. Indianapolis 24, Denver 13. “I think we were focused on New England,” cornerback Aqib Talib said. “We just knew we were going to tear Andrew Luck and the Colts, get them up out of here and get ready to go to New England. So, when I look back on last year, there was a lot of, ‘Next week when we go

to New England we’ve got to play Gronk like this.’ There was a bunch of future talk when we didn’t even get the Colts yet.” The Broncos believe the coaching staff wasn’t dialed in either, as coordinators Jack Del Rio and Adam Gase were interviewing for head coaching jobs, and John Fox let it be known even before kickoff that Chicago was his kind of town. “I don’t think we had allthe-way focus,” cornerback Chris Harris Jr. said. “Everybody had their minds set on trying to get paid, coaches were trying to leave and go get head coaching jobs. So, I mean, we had a lot of scrambling and stuff going on last year. I think this year everybody’s more focused. Everybody’s bought in.” Nobody’s thinking about the AFC championship this time. “Not a drop of overlooking guys,” Talib said. “Not a drop of that.” Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas, whose 80-yard TD in overtime was the dagger the last time these teams met in the playoffs four years ago, said, “All we’re worried about now is the Steelers.”

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The Patriots’ late-season slump didn’t mean much when the playoffs came to New England. Kansas City’s 11-game winning streak mattered even less. With Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman coming back from injuries to help Tom Brady return to his Super Bowl MVP form, the Patriots earned a spot in the AFC title game for the fifth year in a row, beating the Chiefs, 27-20, Saturday. “It’s pretty special to get back to another AFC Championship game,” said Brady, who will play for the conference title for the 10th time in his career. “It’s pretty cool. It’s hard to do, man. You’ve got to grind throughout the entire year. There’s only four teams playing next week and we’re one of them. That game means a lot.” The Patriots (13-4) are trying to become the first team to win back-to-back NFL titles since they did it in 2003-04. But first they will meet the winner of Sunday’s game between the Steelers and Broncos for a spot in Super Bowl 50. The defending champions would play Jan. 24 in Denver if the Broncos win, or at home if it’s the Steelers. “You can’t take it for granted because everybody knows how hard it is to get there,” said Edelman, who was side-

lined with a broken foot when the Patriots lost four of their last six regular-season games. “We didn’t do too well down the stretch and we were playing against a team that won 11 games in a row. “We didn’t worry about what’s happened in the past or what’s Tom Brady going to happen in the future.” Brady threw for two touchdowns to Gronkowski and sneaked in for another one play after diving for the pylon after a 10-yard scramble that was his longest postseason run in nine years. Brady took a helmet in the back as his body – but not the ball – cleared the goal line. “Anytime the Clydesdale gets running, the crowd goes crazy,” Edelman said. After spending the past two weeks recovering from knee and back injuries, Gronkowski caught seven passes for 83 yards, including touchdowns from 8 and 16 yards out. Gronkowski also recovered an onside kick after Kansas City cut the deficit to 27-20 with a little more than a minute left. Danny Amendola had two catches for 18 yards as he worked his way back from a knee injury. “It’s just great to have those guys back,” Gronkowski said.

“They’re hard workers, they’re great players. The chemistry was clicking tonight.” Alex Smith completed 29 of 50 passes for 246 yards and one touchdown for Kansas City (12-6). The Chiefs had won 11 consecutive games, including a 30-0 victory over Houston in the wild-card round last week for their first playoff victory since 1993. In the meantime, the Patriots have won 24 postseason games. “It gives us a great example of where we need to be,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “So, this is a good experience for us. That’s the way we’ll take it. We’ll learn from our mistakes. “I’m proud of my guys, man. They battled like crazy this year but came up a little short. We’ll be a better team for it next year.” Brady led New England to a score on the opening drive, throwing 11 straight passes and completing eight – the last an 8-yard score to Gronkowski. The Chiefs then made it to the Patriots 16, but settled for a field goal. After trading punts twice, the Patriots started on their when Amendola was flagged for a helmet-first hit to coverage man Jamell Fleming. The drive was in danger of stalling at the Kansas City 35 when Chiefs linebacker Dezman Moses hit Brady late and was called for roughing the passer.

MELBOURNE, Australia – Injury? What injury? The draw? Don’t mention the draw. Six-time Australian Open champion Serena Williams worked her way through the pre-Grand Slam rituals Saturday, practicing on the center court at Melbourne Park, Serena and fielding Williams questions about the inflammation in her left knee that restricted her preparations, and about a tough road to another title. After a tough opener against Camila Giorgi, the highest ranked of the unseeded players in the women’s draw, Williams may have to face former No. 1-ranked Caroline Wozniacki in the fourth round and No. 5-ranked Maria Sharapova in a quarterfinal match that would feature last year’s finalists. “I don’t really ever look at the draw, so I would appreciate it if you didn’t mention it. Thank you,” she said, shutting down talk of another showdown with Sharapova. Both players withdrew from tournaments in the first week of the season, with Williams playing one set in the Hopman Cup – her first competitive outing since her pursuit of the calendar-year Grand Slam ended in a semifinal loss at the U.S. Open – and Sharapova withdrawing before her opening match at the Brisbane International because of a sore left forearm. On Saturday, two days before her opening match, Williams said she felt “a little tired” because she’d been doing so much work, hosing down speculation that she was struggling during her hitting session earlier in the morning. In terms of training, she’s not just working at 100 percent, she said, “I’m at 120, 130 percent right now.” “I’ve had a really good preparation,” she said. “I didn’t have the match play that I’ve wanted to have but after playing for so many years on tour, I should be able to focus on that and the fact that I have played a lot of matches.” She has won 21 major titles, including the Australian and French Opens and Wimbledon in 2015. She doesn’t expect injury to be a problem. “It’s actually really fine. I don’t have any inflammation anymore,” she said. “It’s just that I just needed some time to get over that little hump.” Sharapova has a first-round match against Nao Hibino of Japan. Unlike Williams, she does look further ahead in the draw – even if she doesn’t mention names. “I know who’s here,” she said. “It’s no secret who you’re going to be playing.”

Davis, Orioles agree to 7-year, $161M contract

Dislocated shoulder ends Noah’s season

BALTIMORE – Chris Davis and the Orioles are together again. Multiple people with knowledge of the situation said Davis has agreed to a seven-year, $161 million contract with Baltimore, pending a physical. The people spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity Saturday because the Orioles had not announced the transaction. The 29-year-old Davis has been with Baltimore since 2011. He hit a major-league leading 47 home runs and amassed 117 RBIs last year. Davis became a free agent after the 2015 season, and he wondered aloud during the final week whether his time in Baltimore was up. Davis has 203 career homers, including 126 over the past three years. He hit a career-high 53 long balls in 2013.

Royals, pitcher Kennedy reach 5-year, $70M deal

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Royals and pitcher Ian Kennedy agreed to a $70 million, fiveyear deal Saturday that includes an opt-out after the first two years, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the contract will not be completed until the 31-year-old righthander passes a physical. That could happen this week. Kennedy went 9-15 with a 4.28 ERA for the San Diego Padres last season. He is four years removed from a 21win season with the Arizona Diamondbacks and has also pitched for the New York Yankees during his nine-year career. The Royals sought another starter to replace Johnny Cueto, who signed a $130 million, sixyear deal with the Giants after helping Kansas City win its first World Series since 1985.

‘Pharoah’ unanimous pick as horse of the year

HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. – American Pharoah left no doubt about who racing’s best horse was in 2015. Neither did the Eclipse Award voters. The Triple Crown and Breeders’ Cup Classic winner won horse of the year and top 3-year-old male honors at Saturday night’s Eclipse Awards – both unanimously. He was the first to sweep the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes since 1978, earning nearly $8.3 million last year alone. “We had a phenomenal year,” trainer Bob Baffert said. American Pharoah and his connections picked up five trophies on racing’s biggest award night, with Zayat Stables prevailing in the owner and breeder divisions and Baffert taking the Eclipse as top trainer.

Blair, Snedeker share Sony lead after 3 rounds

– Wire reports

CHICAGO – Derrick Rose knows all about injuries that can derail a season. Heck, injuries that can alter a career. That’s why the Bulls point guard was using words like “devastating” in discussing the left shoulder injury to teammate Joakim Noah on Friday night. As first expected, the Bulls announced Saturday that the MRI showed a dislocation that will require surgery. Noah was likely to be on the shelf for the next four to six months, which is not only a season-ender for the veteran big man, but could close the book on his career with the Bulls as he’s headed to free agency this summer. “It hurt,” Rose said, when asked what it was like seeing Noah in the locker room after the injury. “It hurt just knowing how hard he works, how

The Bulls’ Joakim Noah guards the Mavericks’ Zaza Pachulia on Friday at the United Center. Noah suffered a dislocated shoulder in the game. [much] he wants to be on the court, how much he means to this team. It’s devastating, but we have to come back in here and make sure the guys are ready. Everybody has to be ready, but you never know. He’s a big piece. He’s a big piece.”

Rose was right. Noah has been a big piece – in the past. This season, however, not as much, losing his starting spot midway through training camp, with first-year coach Fred Hoiberg opting to have Noah come off the bench and work with the second unit.

Basically, the first domino to fall in what has been a rocky year for Noah. The Sun-Times reported last week that, according to a source, Noah was still unhappy with his standing in the organization, and “still hasn’t moved past losing his starting job.” The source went onto say Noah “hasn’t been a distraction by any means, but isn’t the biggest Hoiberg fan these days.” It was not the first time Noah’s unhappiness was whispered about this season, with Noah feeling like he would be better served as a starter, or at least on the court more often in crunch-time. Privately, the Bulls were hoping that winning games would have cured Noah’s woes, but that wasn’t happening. Then in a Dec. 21 game against Brooklyn, Noah first injured the left shoulder, suffering a small tear. He missed the next nine games, watching

the Bulls go 7-2 without him, and becoming the subject of heated trade talks. Ideally, the Bulls were hoping Noah would perform to the level he was playing at right before the Brooklyn game, continue to up his stock, and then move the remaining $13.4 million left on this season’s deal. With the emergence of Bobby Portis, as well as Pau Gasol, Taj Gibson and Nikola Mirotic, the thought was a surplus of bigs made Noah expendable. No longer. “Man, anything can happen up here, man,” Rose said of how this will affect the team. “We’re saying that now this year. That’s something that we never thought would happen. He’s a big piece of our team, and he is going to miss awhile now since it’s dislocated, and we’ve just got to find a way to grind games out. Throughout the game, just find ways to maintain the lead, and play that way.”


Heightened security expected around Wrigley By GORDON WITTENMYER gwittenmyer@suntimes.com CHICAGO – Not even the feel-good vibes of October expectations and sunny July skies over Wrigley Field are strong enough anymore to make an increasingly lethal real world go away for even a few hours at the ballpark. Heightened security fears after recent terrorist attacks in such places as Paris and in San Bernardino, California, could result in all four streets around Wrigley Field being shut down on event days to all but a few authorized vehicles if the Cubs get what they want in talks with the city. “We’re asking them to extend the perimeter of our control 100 feet in every direction,” Cubs business president Crane Kenney said during a Saturday session at Cubs Convention. “That

“The thing that used to keep me awake all night was the concrete and steel in our ballpark, which we’re fixing. The thing that keeps me awake all night now is the crazy times we live in.” Crane Kenney Cubs business president doesn’t mean we want to own 100 feet in every direction. But we do want to know who is there and what they’re driving and why they’re there.” Kenney also warned fans during Cubs Convention on Saturday to prepare for longer waits to get into the ball-

Toews’ stats finally starting to add up By MARK LAZERUS mlazerus@suntimes.com Despite all his offensive ability, Jonathan Toews always has been defined not by numbers, but by intangibles – his leadership, his two-way game, his sheer force of will. But like just about every other player, Toews keeps an eye on the stat sheet and can be just as much a numbers guy as anybody else. “When I like my stats, Jonathan yeah,” he said Toews with a smile. “If I don’t like my stats too much, no, not so much.” So, sure, Toews knows full well he’s the top faceoff guy in the league this season, winning 58.7 percent of his draws. But he also knew that, as of a couple of weeks ago, he was far below the almost point-a-game production he has enjoyed for the past five seasons. His shots were down significantly, and his possession numbers, while still good, were down, too. But the drop in the simplest of all stats – goals scored – was the most glaring. At the Christmas break, Toews had 11 goals, and only five of those came during 5-on-5 play. In a 25-game stretch between Halloween and Christmas, Toews had one or no shots on goal a stunning 14 times. “It’s not for a lack of trying,” Toews said in late December. “I want to be shooting. I want to be getting those chances. I just need to keep working for those scenarios. Eventually they’ll start going in.” That’s the thing about Toews. Whether it’s a scoring drought in the 2013 playoffs, a midseason dip the next season, or a two-month hiccup like this one, nobody ever worries about Toews. Least of all Toews him-

self. And sure enough, Toews has course-corrected in dramatic fashion during the Blackhawks’ 10-game winning streak. He has six goals and five assists during the streak, climbing all the way to 16th in the league in goals. In Thursday’s win over Montreal, Toews passed Patrick Sharp for 11th on the all-time franchise list. And he’s doing his best to keep longtime running buddy Patrick Kane at bay – Kane, the league’s leading goal scorer with 28, is seven back. After going through a half-dozen left wings over the first couple of months of the season, the Hawks’ top line finally has some stability with Andrew Shaw playing as well as he ever has. It’s no coincidence that both Toews and Marian Hossa are playing their best hockey of the season now that their line isn’t changing every other game. “I don’t think the three of us are putting any pressure on ourselves, the way maybe we were earlier,” Toews said. “A lot of that comes from just having the puck a lot more. I think we’re finally starting to know where the other guys are on our line, and we’re able to get pucks away from pressure and buy each other some time and space. And plays are just developing for us.” Hawks coach Joel Quenneville never has a bad word to say about his captain, and downplayed the early scoring slump while highlighting Toews’ stellar all-around game, particularly the way he handles the difficult defensive assignment he tends to draw. But Quenneville could sense some frustration in Toews’ game in the early going. “He wants to score like top guys do,” Quenneville said. “But it’s been tough around the league this year. A number of guys, their offense is down.”

park this year because everyone will be required to pass through metal detectors at every gate. “The thing that used to keep me awake all night was the concrete and steel in our ballpark, which we’re fixing,” he said. “The thing that keeps me awake all night now is the crazy times we live in.” Kenney called large venues such as Wrigley Field “targets” for would-be terrorists and talked about the scant 6 feet of sidewalk between the park and passing traffic on Addison. He said the morning after the November attacks in Paris, he called a staff meeting to talk about security issues and hired a consultant, eventually leading to the request to shut down Clark and Addison Streets for events. Waveland and Sheffield already are closed to through traffic on game days.

“We would love to know who’s driving what and what are they doing next to the ballpark while the game’s going on,” Kenney said. Major League Baseball increased security leaguewide since 9/11 and in 2014 mandated at least hand-held metal detectors for every ballpark by last year’s opener. The policy was inconsistently enforced at many parks, including Wrigley. Kenney said next week’s regularly scheduled owners meetings includes a session with officials from the Department of Homeland Security. “We take the security issue really seriously,” Kenney said. The conspicuous impact will mean fans already asked to endure a 10 percent ticket price hike and continuing construction around the ballpark should plan for delays for metal-detector lines.

HONOLULU – Even after missing a 2-foot birdie putt on his last hole, it wasn’t hard for Zac Blair to see nothing but opportunity Saturday at the Sony Open. Blair three-putted for par on the closing par 5 at Waialae and had to settle for a 6-under-par 64, giving him a share of the lead with Brandt Snedeker as the 25-year-old from Utah goes after his first PGA Tour victory. Snedeker missed birdie putts of 10 feet and 12 feet on the last two holes for a 66. They were at 16-under 194, and they still had plenty of company. Kevin Kisner recovered from a 5-iron that wound up on the other side of the corporate tents behind the par-3 17th for his only bogey of the round. He got up-and-down from behind the green on the 18th for a birdie and a 66, leaving him one shot behind.

Lakemoor carpet specialist goes to White House Business owner among few to treat West Wing carpets By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO sdibenedetto@shawmedia.com LAKEMOOR – It’s not every day a business owner from McHenry County receives an invitation to work inside the room that held President Barack Obama and his national security team during the 2011 raid on Osama bin Laden’s Pakistan compound. So, David Meintz, a textile cleaner and restoration specialist in Lakemoor, can’t blame himself for initially overlooking the email that presented him with such an opportunity on New Year’s Eve. “He put it out earlier in the week,

and I kind of blew it off because it was New Year’s Eve and we had plans,” Meintz said. “But then I was like, ‘Wait, this is a chance to work in the White House.’” The email Meintz nearly missed was from his mentor Chris Howell, who runs Colorful Carpets and services the Washington, D.C. area. Howell invited Meintz and three other carpet clean- David ing and restoration Meintz specialists from across the country to the White House to treat carpets in the West Wing and Situation Room on New Year’s Eve. Meintz, who owns Clean Bee Cleaning and Restoration and the Cleaning Studio in Lakemoor, said he was taught by Howell to use a treatment process called “ColorClean” that restores the original

coloring of carpets and oriental rugs. The process helped Howell secure the carpet cleaning project in the White House, Meintz said. He described the experience as surreal, especially since Meintz visited the nation’s capitol only one other time for a work function. The Situation Room, a restricted area in the ground level of the West Wing featuring conference rooms for intelligence and emergency services, is where Obama and his national security team watched the successful raid that killed al-Qaeda’s top leader in May 2011. Dating back to the John F. Kennedy administration, presidents and their national security advisers often have used the room to oversee foreign crises and missions. Meintz strictly cleaned the carpets throughout the Situation Room, as federal agents monitored

Auto shop rebounds after fire By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO sdibenedetto@shawmedia.com McHENRY – When customers now walk into the McHenry County Four-Wheel Drive Center, they do a double take and ask for reassurance they’ve entered the right business, owner Ted Smak said. They struggle to recognize the auto repair and U-Haul rental shop in McHenry with its fresh paint, new brick work and modern lightning nearly 30 years after Smak opened the business along Route 120. Smak is grateful he can tell customers why those improvements were made – and even more grateful he can service customers at the location. On Jan. 11, 2015, a fire ripped through the McHenry County FourWheel Drive Center, causing an estimated $300,000 in damages. The roof was ruined, walls were in tatters and his repair equipment broken. “It was devastating. My heart just came into my mouth,” Smak said of witnessing the fire last January. “I want to thank all my customers for waiting and dealing with me. It made me proud all my customers came back in.” Now more than a year later after an extensive rebuild, the shop looks modern and business is as strong as ever thanks to his loyal customers, he said. Businesses often struggle to recover from damaging fires, and the Smak family is thankful they had the insurance to cover the building improvements. They also are thankful for the firefighters at the McHenry Township Fire Protection District for their swift response nearly a year ago. Smak, who runs the business with the help from his son, also moved quickly to restart work. Less than 24 hours after the fire, he started renting U-Haul trucks again to customers. By the summer, enough building improvements were made for Smak to restart his primary operation – the auto repair and lift work out of the shop’s garage. Smak said he lost significant business during the rebuild process but because of his customer base – built up after three decades – he knew the business would remain in operation. He even makes sure he sweeps up after himself following a repair job. “I’m so proud. My business is so nice and clean,” Smak said. “It looks like a brand new business.”

Michael Pistillo Jr. follows stock prices at the New York Stock Exchange on Friday. Analysts have said the recent volatility on the stock market should continue.

Get used to it: Big drops for stocks are back again By STAN CHOE The Associated Press NEW YORK – Yes, this is scary. Stock prices plunged again Friday and are down more than 8 percent in just two weeks, an unprecedented slide for a start of a year. The vicious drops feel even more unsettling because they’re such a departure from the placid and strong returns investors had been enjoying for years. Like vacationers returning from a warm beach to a slushy commute to work, the shock of change is making something already painful even more so. Now investors just need to get used to it, analysts said. “It was easy for many years,” said Bill Barker, portfolio manager at Motley Fool Asset Management, whose three mutual funds control about $600 million. “That was not an accurate display of what happens in the market all the time.” The painful return of big price swings serves

as a reminder that investing in stocks can be harrowing, especially if investors focus on the dayto-day moves. That’s not to say investors can’t still win over the long term. Over the past 12 months, an investor in an S&P 500 index fund has lost nearly 5 percent, including dividends. But over five years, they are up a total of 60 percent, and over 10 years, they are up 79 percent. It’s just that analysts expect the volatility to continue. The remarkably calm stretch from late 2011 through last summer was an anomaly. From 2012 until last summer, investors basked in a market where the Standard & Poor’s 500 rarely had a bad day. The widely followed index fell more than 1 percent less often than Los Angeles has rainy days, about 8 percent of the time. During that span, the S&P 500 also completely avoided a “correction,” which is what traders call a sustained drop of 10 percent. It wasn’t until this past August when the S&P 500 snapped into its first correction in nearly

four years, felled by concerns about China’s slowdown and the fragility of the global economy. The worries have resumed this year. The S&P 500 fell back into a correction, and already has had six days where it’s lost more than 1 percent. That means the S&P 500 has had that big a drop in 22 percent of the trading days since Aug. 20, more than the historical average. But when looking at the last five years as a whole, the recent spurt of volatility merely has pulled the market back to “normal.” The S&P 500 has had a 1 percent drop in 11 percent of trading days in the last five years, the same as its average over the last 50 years. The latest big drop came Friday, when the S&P 500 fell as much as 3.5 percent and at one point erased 15 months of gains. Besides China’s sharp economic slowdown,

Allowances? Teach kids 3 uses for money Dear Dave,

DAVE SAYS Dave Ramsey

Our son just turned 8 years old. Is it time to start giving him an allowance? – Dan

Dear Dan,

There’s never a time for an allowance – no matter the child’s age. In my mind, that kind of thinking is the best way to plant the seeds of entitlement. You want your son growing up with the idea that he’s owed money simply because he’s alive. Instead, work out a plan to pay him commissions. Assign him weekly chores that are age-appropriate. Then, when the work gets done, he gets paid. And guess what? If the work doesn’t get done, he doesn’t get paid. Not only do we want to teach

him a healthy work ethic, but we also want him to learn work creates money. Of course, there are some things a child should be expected to do without financial reward. Everyone needs to pitch in and do certain things to help out when they’re part of a family. But once you’ve taught him about work, make sure to also teach him about the three uses for money – saving, spending and giving. Lessons on the basic handling of money are some of the best teachable moments you can have with your child.

Not only does it make them more knowledgeable about finances, it helps them learn about life. – Dave

Dear Dave,

My fiancé and I are getting married in May. He’s a youth pastor, and I’m in grad school. His mom and dad found a home they think we’ll like, and they want to gift us money for a down payment. I’m not sure how I feel about this under our present circumstances. Do you think we should go ahead and accept when I’ll still be in school and we’ll still have debt to pay off? – Emily

Dear Emily,

You need to get to know each

other before you buy a house together. I always recommend that young couples rent for a year and concentrate on each other, the new marriage, cleaning up any debts you have and establishing an emergency fund. Then, after another year or so, when you’ve had time to take control of your finances, the idea of looking for a home becomes much smarter. It sounds like your future in-laws are really generous people. They’re trying to do something nice for you two, but they kind of got out ahead of things with this idea. And in the process, they violated some boundaries in your relationship with your fiancé. My advice is to have a conversation with your fiancé about all this

and get on the same page about what is the smart thing to do. Then the two of you need to have a loving discussion with his parents. Let him do most of the talking, and say thank you a lot, but let them know you both feel it would be best to start out by renting something for a year or so. Then after a little time has passed, tell them if they still want to help with a down payment, you’d both be very grateful. I think this approach would be good for the boundary issues and for your finances. – Dave

Zfan Technologies establishes headquarters in Huntley


than 20 years, operating Zfan Technologies for the last 10 years primarily out of his home in Lake in the Hills. The move into Huntley provides Zfan Technologies with its first formal headquarters, which will support the business’ research-and-development efforts and provides additional warehouse space, Zeng said. The Route 47-Interstate 90 interchange also was a major reason for the move, he said, since the full interchange allows for easier highway access. Zfan Technologies currently employs five people, but the company will look to hire additional positions once settled in Huntley, he said. Represented by Elk Grove Village-based Brown Commercial Group, Zfan Technologies purchased the property in early December. Premier Commercial Reality represented the seller Emerick Capital Investments, which owns other sites in the Huntley Gateway Commons Business Park. Terms of the sale were not disclosed, but Premier listed the property earlier in 2015 for $405,500, according to its website.

Huntley Area Chamber of Commerce representatives and village officials helped open the new Walmart Vision Center, 12300 S. Route 47, Huntley, during a ribbon-cutting ceremony in December. Walmart Manager Brenda Degenhardt, Dr. Frank and the rest of the center’s staff commemorated the opening with community members.

HUNTLEY – With sights set on the future, a small company that engineers fan parts is moving to Huntley to establish a formal headquarters and take advantage of the Interstate 90 interchange in the village. Zfan Technologies plans to complete its move to a 4,265-square-foot office and warehouse along Oak Creek Parkway, near the Jewel-Osco in Huntley, by early spring, owner L Zeng said. Already with a warehouse space in Joliet, Zfan Technologies designs and supplies fan components to HVAC manufacturers in the United States, and partners with factories in Asia to create the parts. “We are expanding and got more space for our growing business,” Zeng said of the move into Huntley. “We are accepted by our customers. That’s why they give us more opportunity to grow.” Zeng, who emigrated from China to the McHenry County area 25 years ago, has worked in the fan industry for more

Crystal Lake pastor accepts job with Illinois hospice provider

HUNTLEY – A pastor with the Calvary Assembly of God in Crystal Lake for the last 18 years, Terry Reilly recently accepted a position with a Huntley-based hospice provider, according to a news release. Reilly said the opportunity with Transitions Hospice, which provides end-of-life care throughout the Chicago area for patients in their homes and nursing homes, allows him to pursue a longtime goal to aide the sick and dying. Earlier in his career, Reilly served as a parttime hospice chaplain for four years because of his interest in hospice care, the release stated. Terry “What really stuck with Reilly me the most was how people had their priorities straight at the end of life. Materialism and accomplishments simply did not matter,” Reilly said. “The only thing that mattered to these folks was, ‘How do I get to heaven?’ and, ‘Where is my family?’” Headquartered in Huntley, Transitions

Hospice provides care to patients in 26 counties throughout northern Illinois and downstate areas such as Peoria and Champaign. For information, visit www. transitionshospice.com.

How to overcome obstacles in 2016 MOTIVATION Bob Sandidge & Anne Ward At the start of a new year, many of us feel a wave of new energy – a sense of turning a corner toward a fresh landscape that offers new possibilities, if only we can make a few changes. Some people capture the energy, making resolutions for changes they want to make. As proponents of positive psychology, we encourage individuals to dream of new dreams and adventures. In the two decades since Martin Seligman stepped onto the dais as president of the American Psychological Association, he has added a new goal for the profession: “exploring what makes life worth living and building the enabling conditions of a life worth living.” That was the official start of positive psychology. A rigorous researcher, Seligman teaches what truly works to add positive emotion, engagement, meaning, accomplishment and positive relationships to our lives. So, yes, you should think positively about your goals for 2016 but add a bit more motivation by thinking beyond goal setting this year. If the ghosts of New Years’ past visit you tonight, what will they see looking back at a lifetime of New Year’s resolutions? We don’t want to quash your dreams before they begin, but reality intrudes. According to the University of Scranton’s Journal of Clinical Psychology, more than 50 percent of those who make resolutions fail to maintain them beyond six months. Reality, however, is not necessarily the enemy. A former student of Seligman, professor Gabriele Oettingen, suggests once you’ve made your goal, you should think about what behaviors, attitudes and habits may prevent you from reaching your goal. Make a plan for your goals when obstacles do happen.

Some steps to better accomplish your goals in 2016: • What is your specific goal? • What will reaching a goal make possible for you? • What are the obstacles that could keep you from reaching the goal? • Make a specific plan for future action if and when obstacles happen while you’re on your way to successful goal achievement. In experiments, people who did this consistently outperformed those who simply envision success. Oettingen calls this process “mental contrasting.” Let’s say you want to grow your business this year through more group presentations. And you know that for every 20 people who see a presentation, one or two people will ask for a demonstration, amounting to an 80 percent customer acquisition rate after a demonstration. That means if you schedule presentations to 100 prospects, you can expect between four and eight new customers this year. By adding the mental contrasting process, you can ask yourself how you might keep yourself from making presentations to the number of people required. While you enjoy one-on-one demonstrations, you may get nervous thinking about groups. You then devise a plan. First, you schedule a presentation for the near future. As you plan for it, you can ask a friend to help you practice when you feel nervous. That step makes it more likely you’ll successfully complete your goal. It gets even better. Oettingen learned there is a beneficial side effect of mental contrasting – it tends to add energy and motivation to your goal achievement plans.

White House project ‘oncein-a-lifetime opportunity’ • CARPETS

Continued from page D1 his every step – even when it was time for a water break, he recalled. He and the other specialists applied the ColorClean process to carpets in common areas throughout the West Wing and restored the coloring. The treatment process uses dye that matches a carpet’s dominant color and applies it through the cleaning solution during cleaning. It helps diminish the “dinginess” in

older carpets, Meintz said. During his visit inside the West Wing, Meintz also made sure to note his surroundings since they had to give up their phones after entering the building. He spotted mail dropboxes with the labels “president” and “vice president” on it and took note of original building features. “It was phenomenal. I had a sense of excitement, but also felt privileged that I was afforded the opportunity,” Meintz said. “I consider it a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

Energy cutbacks as oil drops By DANICA KIRKA The Associated Press LONDON – The world’s biggest oil companies are slashing jobs and backing off major investments as the price of crude falls to new lows – and there may be more pain to come. Companies like BP, which said last week it is cutting 4,000 jobs, are slimming down to cope with the slump in oil, whose price has plummeted to its lowest level in 12 years and is not expected to recover significantly for months, possibly years. California-based Chevron said last fall it would eliminate 7,000 jobs, while rival Shell announced 6,500 layoffs. And it’s not even the big producers that will be affected most, but the numerous companies that do business with them, such as drilling contractors and equipment suppliers. While plummeting oil prices have been great news for motorists, airlines and other businesses that rely heavily on fuel, some 95,000 jobs were lost in the energy sector by U.S.-based companies in 2015, according to the consulting firm Challenger, Gray & Christmas. That was up from 14,000 the year before. Energy companies expanded as oil topped $100 a barrel in 2008 and stayed there during the early part of this decade, but prices have plunged over the past two years because of high supply and weakening demand The start of a new year hasn’t helped matters, with Brent crude, the benchmark for internationally produced oil, slipping below $31 a barrel on Tuesday, a drop of about 20 percent drop since Jan. 1 and the lowest since 2004. With some analysts forecasting a drop near $10 a barrel, companies are

bracing for more trouble. “Calling the bottom in a market is always a dangerous practice, akin to catching a falling knife,” said Michael Hewson, chief market analyst at CMC Markets. “But when the clamor for lower prices becomes a stampede, warning signs and alarm bells tend to start going off, which suggests that a more prudent approach might be advisable.” The uncertainty is making companies think twice before sinking money into new oil projects. That’s a problem, since even the most modest project requires vast commitments of resources over a number of years. If the industry doesn’t invest in production, that could create supply problems down the line. On the North Sea, “there is a standstill in the new project launches which may create a hole in the pipeline of projects next year,” said Florent Maisonneuve, managing director and co-head of Oil & Gas at AlixPartners in Paris. Weakening demand in China, the world’s second-largest energy consumer, has helped drive the price down. So has a stronger U.S. dollar, which makes oil more expensive for buyers outside the United States. Members of OPEC, meanwhile, are refusing to cut back on production for fear of losing their share of the market to non-members like the U.S. and Russia. And OPEC states Iran and Iraq, whose industries have been off line for years because of conflict and sanctions, are looking to start pumping more. All this means prices are unlikely to bounce back soon. “The companies are doing the best they can to survive as long as they can,” said Spencer Welch, an oil expert at analysis group IHS. “We don’t see a quick out.”

In the United States, the Energy Department last week said it expects U.S. crude to average $38.54 a barrel in 2016. Fadel Gheit, an analyst at Oppenheimer & Co., said as many as half of the independent drilling companies working in U.S. shale fields could go bankrupt before prices stabilize. In countries where oil production is state-owned and the main source of economic wealth, the drop in price is particularly painful. Russia, Venezuela and Gulf states like Saudi Arabia are seeing state coffers empty at an alarming pace, forcing them to make cost cuts that affect the wider population. Russia has based its budget this year on an average oil price of $50 per barrel, and the government has indicated it is prepared to make spending cuts across the board to deal with the slump. The economy already is sliding into recession. Russia also warned last month it probably will deplete a rainy day fund, now worth roughly $52 billion, by the end of 2016 to make up for losses caused by the drop in oil prices. Among the Gulf states, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Oman are reducing subsidies on gasoline. In Bahrain, gas prices at the pump rose by as much as 60 percent on Tuesday. The financial outlook is so uncertain that Saudi Arabia is considering selling a part of its state-owned oil company, the world’s largest producer, in a public offering. Welch said with the oil market oversupplied, it may not be until the third quarter of this year before things come into balance. BP said last week it made its job cuts in light of “toughening conditions” in the industry. The cuts will include some 600 jobs in the North Sea.

Global economic concerns driving market volatility • STOCKS

Continued from page D1 analysts see other reasons for volatility to continue. Tensions in the Middle East are high, and the plunge in prices of oil and other commodities are raising concerns about global economic growth and decimating the profits – and share prices – of materials producers.

What makes the volatility even more painful to endure is that many analysts are forecasting stock returns to be lower this year and in the coming years than in the recent past. So, investors are facing the prospect of higher risk without much higher reward. The forecast for big swings could encourage some investors to try to time the market, attempting to jump in to catch stocks when they’re rising and

jump out during downturns. That’s usually not a good idea, even for pros. Strategists at Goldman Sachs’ investment management division wrote in a recent report it’s better to remain a long-term investor, and not become a short-term trader. “The vast majority of traders – including most macro hedge fund traders – have failed to capitalize on such moves,” the strategists wrote.

COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com LAKE IN THE HILLS – A Lake in the Hills business that donated $2,000 worth of materials and helped remodel the kitchen at Turning Point’s Woodstock shelter was one of three businesses recently recognized. The village recognizes businesses each year as part of its Gordon Larsen Business Achievement Awards, named in honor of a Lake in the Hills resident who helped shape the village’s “physical and civic landscape” and believed in philanthropic businesses, according to the village. More than 450 nominations for 22 different storefront and home-based Lake in the Hills businesses were submitted

health, dental, vision and longterm disability insurance, discounted Internet connection rates, professional development and tuition reimbursement, cellphone reimbursement, matching retirement plan contributions of up to 3 percent, seasonal company outings, and weekly company luncheons, Mulcahy said. “Don’t any of you staff members get any ideas about all of these benefits,” Mulcahy joked at Thursday’s Village Board meeting. The final award recognized home-based Bright Star Pet Services for Best Customer Service, which received the most nominations the village has ever gotten for a homebased business.

Our Next Phase™ Retirement Income Strategy provides a sound foundation for creating that income.

More U.S. flights arriving on time, but complaints are up (AP) – U.S. airlines are doing better at staying on schedule than a year ago, but more passengers are filing complaints against the carriers. Hawaiian Airlines and Delta Air Lines topped the on-time rankings for November, which were released Friday by the U.S. Department of Transportation. Budget airlines Spirit and Frontier had the worst on-time

last fall. Of those, three received awards based on customer service, community service and employee treatment. Lowe’s Home Improvement, 300 N. Randall Road, received the Best Community Service Award after receiving 76 nominations, a majority of which pointed to its work remodeling Turning Point’s kitchen. The business reached out to Turning Point after hearing their radio-a-thon to see what more they could do, Village President Paul Mulcahy said. They ended up donating materials, and employees helped rehab the kitchen, including replacing the cabinets, sink and painting the walls of the kitchen and hallways. This year’s Employer of Choice was DLS Internet Services. The business offers

a year earlier. Still, only 989 people – a tiny percentage of passengers – bothered to file a report with the government. Complaints about foreign airlines rose 14 percent. SkyWest, which operates regional flights for the major airlines, and Southwest had the lowest complaint rates. Spirit had the highest complaint rate by a wide margin.

TODAY - Use your imagination when it comes to financial gains, pending legal settlements or contracts in order to come out on top and set the stage for bigger and better opportunities. A passionate approach to life will bring new beginnings and stellar results. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Push for something that can make a difference to where or how you live. Engage in short jaunts that will let you show how serious you are about getting what you want. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- If you help others, your good deeds will enhance your reputation. There are gains to be made

professionally and financially if you fine-tune what you have to offer. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Don’t trust an indulgent or extravagant proposal. A pragmatic approach to helping others will make your plans more appealing and ensure positive change. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Avoid a snap decision that can affect your position or income. Don’t let your emotions take the reins and lead to a regrettable mistake. Take a deep breath and focus on positive physical improvements. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Take the







initiative to make things happen. Plan a trip or look for information that could help you get ahead professionally. A passionate evening will ease your stress. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You’ll be tempted to have fun, but you must remember when to draw the line. Indulgent tendencies are present and will lead to problems that will be difficult to resolve. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Don’t let fear of failure or change stand in your way. Embrace life and discover what you’ve been missing. You’ll be enlightened and overjoyed with the improvements you make.




LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Keep everything in order and stick to what you know will work. Don’t be enticed by someone or something that will cause emotional uncertainty and duress. Weigh the pros and cons. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Plan a vacation, take a day trip, or attend a trade show or conference that encourages you to do things you enjoy. Don’t give in to someone’s guilt tactics or demands. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Be conscious of what the people around you need and want, but don’t make unreasonable sacrifices to appease others. Strive for changes





that serve your needs as well. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- It’s a good day to take action and do things at home that will make your life better and more convenient and enjoyable. The changes you bring about will encourage greater creativity. Reconnect with an old colleague. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Someone will feed you false information. Don’t take action based on hearsay. Dig deep and look for what’s in your best interest, not what will benefit someone else.

Meet America in its raucous glory My wife and I went out on Sunday afternoon a couple of weeks ago, and we met America. That wasn’t our original intention, but that’s what happened nonetheless. We had gone out to a sports bar because my wife is a rabid Chicago Bears fan and it was the last football game of the regular season. When we walked in, every table and booth in the place was occupied. We stared around the room a few moments, considering our options, when a group of strangers invited us to join them at their table. They introduced themselves as Bob and Ann – both Steelers fans – sitting with Elmer, who didn’t seem to care much one way or the other. Next to them sat Dave, who was a fan of the Lions – the team the Bears would be playing this day. By the time we opened the lunch menu, the Bears were behind by a touchdown. “Plenty of game left for us to blow it,” said Dave, whose Lions had the same pitiful record as the Bears, and whose season would end at exactly the same time regardless of the outcome, since neither team would advance to the playoffs. We were all total strangers when we sat down, but we already were chatting and laughing like old friends. Because this is America. At the table behind Bob and Ann sat a burly guy in a Steelers jersey, but he was cheering for the Browns on a nearby TV because if the Browns beat the Jets, that would improve the odds the Steelers might advance as a wild card. With every positive Browns play, he leaped to his feet and got the crowd chanting and cheering, just for the fun of it. Another couple of guys walked in, and we waved them over to take the last two seats at our table. They were Jets fans, but they couldn’t help but smile at the burly Steelers fan’s antics whenever the Browns bested the Jets on a play. Because this is America. Around the bar, cheers and groans erupted at random times because more

than a dozen games were being televised on the many TV’s. Many fans watched more than one game at once, because their team’s fate next week might be determined by whatever action was causing the elation or the agony to bubble at the next table. Because this is America. And I wondered if such a scene could play out in any other corner of the planet. In Ireland, England, Germany and many other nations I have visited, game day in the local pub is a monochromatic event. Drive through an Irish county on game day, and you’ll see the identical football (soccer) flag waving from every porch. Walk into a Liverpool pub in a shirt colored anything but red on game day, and you risk a confrontation. But not on game day in America, where any sports bar worth visiting is a raucous rainbow of manic fanaticism. Because this is America, where the diversity is half the fun. At halftime, conversations turned to other things – jobs, kids, the weather – but nothing that might startle or offend a new friend. Religion was off the table for now, even though it was Sunday, as was politics, even though the first presidential caucuses were only weeks away. We suspected our tastes in such matters were probably as diverse as the team colors we wore, but this was NFL football day, and out of respect for each other and for the sanctity of sports bar etiquette, we wore our disparate sporting colors proudly, yet kept our deeper differences to ourselves. Because this is America. I knew that evening at home we would turn on the news and watch stories about gun violence, terrorism, climate change, race relations, police tactics, street protests, immigration, foreign intervention, health care and a hundred other things. I knew as we watched the same stories in our homes, all of us – Bob, Ann, Dave, Elmer and every other person in that sports bar – almost certainly would disagree with each other about what we as Americans

should do next. We all knew that. We knew we all would throw our firm support behind one issue or another – with our votes, our financial contributions, our purchases or boycotts of purchases – and that our efforts often would conflict with the efforts of those sitting around the table with us. And yet, as our Bears quarterback threw a game-ending interception to finish the season with a loss (because, after all, they are the Bears), my wife and I pushed back from the table with a smile and shook hands with all our new friends around the table – including Dave, the Lions fan whose team had ended their season by sending our Bears to the cellar of the division. We told them we hoped we would all meet there again next year when we had a new football season to cheer for. They agreed and wished us a happy new year. Because this is America. It is easy to lose faith and fondness for your fellow Americans if the only place you meet them is on the nightly news, where blowhards blather about why and how we should steer clear of anyone who might look or think differently. But if you want to find the real America – the one worth living in – stop in at any sports bar and join the amazing Technicolor crowd. It doesn’t have to be Sunday afternoon, and it doesn’t have to be football season, because there is always basketball, or baseball, or hockey. In fact, you don’t even have to be a sports fan. And a sports bar doesn’t have to be the only place you can find it. Because outside your front door, down the street and around the corner is America in all its many-colored raucous glory. And you gotta love it.

EnvironmentTip Washing dishes by hand vs. the machine

Assuming you use appropriate cycles and only run the dishwasher when it’s full, the machine wins as being more environmentally friendly. This is true even if you

include the energy used in the production of the dishwasher in the first place. To maximize the benefits, choose a model that will last and then look after it. Try to run it fully loaded, use the economy setting when

possible and – for maximum green points – use the timer setting to run the dishwasher in the middle of the night. This way you’ll be using the grid at a time of low demand, which means the least efficient and dirtiest power stations won’t

be running, and as a result, each unit of power will have a slightly lower carbon footprint. If you have to hand wash dishes, please, don’t let the water run.

Keep home warm during the winter while saving money By KATHERINE ROTH

As winter wears on, a few cheap and easy fixes can help keep homes warm while saving energy and money. The average household spends about $2,000 a year on utilities, almost half of which goes toward heating and cooling, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Luckily, a little savvy can go a long way toward reducing heating bills. Five ideas from the energy experts:

should be set to 8 degrees lower than normal at night and when no one’s home. Some utility companies provide programmable thermostats for free or offer rebates, so it’s worth calling your energy provider before heading to the hardware store. Even without special offers, most programmable thermostats are less than $100, Urbanek says, and will save you an estimated $180 a year on energy costs. “A programmable thermostat can cut consumption by 20 to 30 percent,” she said.


windows and 3. Put fans to work

The Associated Press

Think clean, clear and efficient

“Check your furnace filter on a monthly basis. If it’s dirty, it won’t function as efficiently as it could,” said Lauren Urbanek, senior energy policy advocate for the Natural Resources Defense Council. The EPA recommends cleaning or replacing furnace filters every three months. And Bob McGee, a spokesman for the Con Edison utility company, said, “Make sure someone comes in to tune up the heating system once a year. Service contracts are always a good idea.” If you’re in the market for a new furnace, opt for an Energy Starcertified model. Some upgrades can reduce heating costs by as much as 30 percent, McGee said. “And remember to make sure the heating vents aren’t blocked and that everything’s cleared out of the way, otherwise you’ll be heating your drapes or the back of your furniture instead of the room,” Urbanek said.


Get with the program

Consider investing in a programmable thermostat to maximize energy efficiency. “We recommend keeping it set to between 68 and 72 degrees when people are home, and then down to between 55 and 65 when no one is home and at night,” Urbanek said. The EPA said the thermostat

“Make sure your curtains are open when the sun is out and closed when it’s dark and cold outside,” Urbanek said. “And remember that warm air rises, so if you have a ceiling fan, keeping it on low with the blade direction reversed [moving clockwise] will gently bring the warm air back down.”

4. Seal and insulate

If you’re doing all that and your bills are still high, the Natural Resources Defense Council recommends checking for air leaks in your home and duct systems. “Things like caulking and window stripping are really easy to do,” Urbanek said. The average household can cut its heating and cooling costs by about $200 a year just by following Energy Star’s sealing and insulation guidance (www.energystar.gov) and using Energy Star-certified appliances, according to the EPA.

an 5. Consider energy audit

Many energy companies help customers get professional energy audits of their homes or offer lists of energy audit providers, and some utilities offer financial incentives to have audits done. A professional can pinpoint improvements that can translate into greater energy efficiency and savings, McGee said.

Judges Christiane Lemieux (from left) and Cliff Fong with Ellen DeGeneres during the taping of “Ellen’s Design Challenge,” returning for a second season on at 8 p.m. Monday on HGTV.

‘Ellen’s Design Challenge’ returns for second season By FRAZIER MOORE The Associated Press NEW YORK – For most of us, the word “chair” probably brings to mind a single, universal image signifying the totality of chair-ness. Same with the idea of “table” or “bed.” But the fact is, the range of chairs, tables, beds and other furnishings is limitless and ever-growing, always inspiring further innovations. Anyone doubting that is welcome to tune into “Ellen’s Design Challenge,” which returns for its second season Monday at 8 p.m. on HGTV. “How many more ways are there to make a coffee table? How many more ways are there to make a chair?” poses Ellen DeGeneres. “Design Challenge” promises to shed light on those questions. DeGeneres – who says, “I love anything that goes in a house, including the house itself” – hatched the idea for this design competition, which will showcase 10 candidates (up from six last year). They will sketch, design and build innovative furniture with the hope of outlasting their rivals and, at the end, receiving the $100,000 prize. On every episode, these competitors will face new design challenges as each is paired with an expert carpenter to fulfill that week’s assignment. Maybe they’re required to make a certain type of furniture. Maybe they’re limited to certain materials. Then their

Tune in What: “Ellen’s Design Challenge” When: 8 p.m. Mondays Where: HGTV creations are evaluated by a panel of judges, with the field of competitors continually narrowing. “It’s got the drama of their having to come up with ideas while trying to make a deadline,” said DeGeneres, who will make the occasional surprise appearance, but, as executive producer, mostly watches with great interest from off-screen. “My passion is design,” she said, which is how she came up with “Design Challenge.” “Some of the designs on the show are functional as a piece of furniture, and some of it is art,” she notes. The same as in her home: “Some of my favorite chairs are not really comfortable, but I love the design of them. It’s not going to be in my living room to actually invite guests to sit on, but it’s going to be an object I love having on display.” No doubt the judges will be tested along with each designer, as they size up each creation for both its form and its function. DeGeneres promised, in Ellen fashion, that this season will be “bigger, better and armoire-ier,” and added, “It’s an eye-opening experience to realize the amount of talent out there that didn’t get exposure until this show.”

Garfield Author Candice Millard to speak about former U.S. president in Woodstock By LINDSAY WEBER editorial@nwherald.com In 1881, the death of one man changed and shaped our history. The assassination of the 20th president of the United States, James Garfield, was instrumental in the joining of a country torn from the lasting effects of civil war, and his story is told in historical nonfiction writer Candice Millard’s latest book, “Destiny of the Republic.” The former writer and editor for National Geographic will be the lecturer for the Woodstock Fine Arts Association’s Creative Living Series on Jan. 21 at the Opera House. Millard’s book captures Garfield’s ascension from a poverty-filled childhood to his brief presidency, which was cut short by an assassination attempt

by a madman. Garfield’s gunshot wound was made worse by months of struggle brought on by the naivety of modern medicine, which led to his death at age 49. “Garfield would have been one of our greatest presidents,” Millard said. “He was incredibly smart and kind and a major advocate for black suffrage, as well as a hero in the Civil War. The bullet that was meant to kill him didn’t hit any vital organs. To remove it today would have been a standard procedure, very easily treatable. Instead, he died three months later of sepsis. It was a tremendous loss to the country. He was widely loved and respected.” Although Abraham Lincoln was assassinated just 16 years before Garfield, the death of these two men had very different effects. “Garfield’s death brought the country together in a way that Lincoln’s death didn’t,” Millard said. “Lincoln’s death divided people. Garfield was poor, a pioneer. He was trusted by the south as well as the north. Both sides saw him as their president. It brought the country together for the first time since the Civil War.” Millard’s first book, “The River of Doubt,” was a New York Times Best Seller that tells the true story of Theodore Roosevelt’s exploration of one of the most dangerous rivers on Earth, the Amazon. Millard is set to release her third book, “Hero of the Empire,” about Winston Churchill and the Boer War in South Africa, in September. The Leawood, Kansas, resident said she started down the American history path during her time at National Geographic and pursued it in her book writing because she wanted to tell great stories. “I’m just interested

CREATIVE LIVING SERIES FEATURING CANDICE MILLARD WHEN: 10 a.m. Jan. 21, with coffee and conversation at 9 a.m. WHERE: Woodstock Opera House, 121 Van Buren St., Woodstock COST & INFO: Presented by the Woodstock Fine Arts Association, Millard will discuss her book, “Destiny of the Republic,” about the life and death of the 20th president of the U.S., James Garfield. Cost: $24 at the box office, by calling 815-338-5300 or at www. woodstockoperahouse.com in great stories and stories that you can learn from. I dig deep into the research, and I have found some really great resources. There are people out there that have spent their lives researching these subjects, and they want to talk about it. They’re willing to help, and they’re happy to help make sure I get it right.” While some may find the thought of writing historically accurate nonfiction intimidating, Millard takes a different approach. If you ask her,

she’ll tell you she has the best job in the world. “It’s fascinating and so much fun. I come to work every day and I can’t believe this is my job. I love it,” Millard said. “It’s an incredible gift to read old letters, diaries and newspaper accounts to really understand how things happened and how they shaped our history and future. It takes about three to four years to complete a book, and I spend most of that time reading to research. It’s wonderful.”

Staying motivated

Pinterest is alive with a new you for the new year

Instagram trainers dish on trade secrets By KELLI KENNEDY


The Associated Press

igh-end fashion designers are launching workout lines, Soul Cycle classes are quickly booking up and fitness trainers have become rock stars apart from their celeb clientele. But with boutique fitness studios popping up everywhere and workout offerings from surfboard workouts to underwater bicycling, it can be a little daunting to find your groove and stick to it past the February chocolate danger zone. We asked some inspiring, hard-core trainers who have won legions of followers on Instagram for their secrets to staying motivated all year long.

By LEANNE ITALIE The Associated Press

Kayla Itsines

www.kaylaitsines.com An army of 6,000 women showed up to squat and high jump alongside trainer Kayla Itsines in London last summer. Her app is the top health and fitness app on iTunes in several different countries. The 24-year-old from Adelaide, Australia, has spawned a devoted following online as women document their progress following her 12-week Bikini Body Guides. Itsines, who has 4.2 million Instagram followers, is known for getting

some serious results thanks to grueling 28-minute high intensity workouts. Focus on your own progress and don’t compare yourself to others, she advises. Find a workout you love so you can make it a habit and make sure to change it up often. “Mixing it up can keep you focused and make sure your workout is always interesting.”

Massy Arias

Shaun T

Rachel Brathen

This Los Angeles-based trainer is seriously bad in all the right ways. The sweaty ab photos Massy Arias posts to her 1.9 million Instagram followers might seem untouchable (yes, that’s her side lunge jumping up a staircase), but her vulnerable struggles with depression are super motivating and, bonus, she also dishes out all her social media advice in English and Spanish. “It wasn’t until I started being more active and religiously making exercise part of my lifestyle that I started feeling more alive, alert, confident, happier, and stronger mentally. The motivation to keep moving forward comes from places within myself that I do not want to go back to.” The 27-year-old’s MA30DAY Challenge workouts include everything from resistance training and yoga to high intensity interval training and sprinting. She encourages followers to set realistic goals instead of trying to change everything overnight. “Going in with this mentality usually demotivates people because they start a regimen that is too hard for their fitness level to maintain and keep up with.”

You know you’ve watched his infomercials in the middle of the night. Shaun T is the original dance cardio king with the street cred to go along with it – he was a former backup dancer for Mariah Carey. His 60-day INSANITY workout put high-intensity interval training on the map, and there’s a reason his six-pack ab photos have landed him 436,000 Instagram followers. Last year, the 37-year-old Phoenix-based trainer went back to his dance roots with his new CIZE workout video, and his podcasts are all about mastering your mind. “Only do exercises you love, and, most importantly, find internal motivation.” And remember to build slowly. “Resolutions can end in failure if you don’t leave yourself wanting more, yes, even more exercise, so don’t overdue your brand new plan in the first week.”

Yogi Rachel Brathen’s fitness tips are a little unusual, but what do you expect from a woman who spends sizable amounts of time hanging upside down and runs around her house with an adorable baby goat. The Aruba-based yoga teacher suggests making a gratitude diary is as important as daily workouts and green shakes.




“Sometimes we get so caught up in what we want to change that we start seeing flaws instead of focusing on getting inspired to move and feel good. It’s important to celebrate the good things. Your body does so much for you every day. ... It’s so much easier to stick to an exercise routine when we appreciate what our bodies can do.”

She starts every morning with hot water and lemon to stimulate her digestive system, turns up some music and powers through a 90-minute yoga session, often beachside. And yeah, her arm balances on paddle boards are super cool, but the pics of her rescue puppies have no doubt helped her land 1.7 million followers on Instagram.

Jeanette Jenkins

David Alexander

She’s the celebrity trainer behind Pink and Kelly Rowland’s banging post-baby bodies. Los Angeles-based fitness guru Jeanette Jenkins, 42, shares moves from her Hollywood Trainer Club to her 314,000 Instagram followers and is known for double duty moves that target multiple body parts at once. “A workout is an internal cleaning,” said Jenkins who said she feels like she can conquer anything after finishing a workout. Her daily workout videos (more than 200 of them) combine everything from cardio kickboxing and circuit training to yoga and Pilates so muscles never plateau. “Schedule your workouts into your smartphone or calendar every week just like any other important meeting and do not cancel on yourself. If it’s important to you then you will make it a priority.”

You might not know his name but you definitely know the athletes he’s trained. Miami-based trainer David Alexander has rehabbed the Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade and former teammate LeBron James. This biomechanics expert is old-school as in showing pro athletes and fitness fanatics how to do basic squats, deadlifts and cable pulls so they don’t lose range of motion and compromise form, further irritating injuries. Alexander, who travels with Wade for games, opened his DBC Fitness in Miami’s trendy design district a year ago but has been training athletes for nearly two decades. He also posts some cool behind the scenes pics while training your favorite athletes to his nearly 100,000 Instagram followers. “Try replacing one bad habit with one good habit each week.” During week one, drink 3 liters of water a day and ditch everything else. Week two, eliminate white flour from your diet to reduce inflammation and get rid of refined sugars in week three. (Healthy sugars such as fruits are OK.)

NEW YORK – Welcome to New Year’s resolution junction. It’s a busy place around this time of year, when those promises we make to ourselves are either furiously alive or dead on arrival. In a little corner of the world we like to call Pinterest, resolution-makers have lit up with ways to declutter, eat healthier and de-stress. “Over the last five years, we’ve seen the growth of more than 100 million special diet pins on Pinterest,” offers Christine Schirmer, a spokeswoman for the site. “But in 2016, we see top health and fitness pins focus on a more balanced approach to well-being, including meditation, bullet journaling and minimalism.” Pinners have saved millions of diet, recipe and workout ideas. For the first time, the site is seeing pinners ditch crash diets. Overall, pins related to crash diets were down 70 percent in 2015 over the year before. Pins of low-carb recipes have decreased by 40 percent since last January and Paleo diet pins were down 32 percent, according to data supplied by Pinterest. Since Christmas, pins for “hourglass workout,” a full-body approach hell bent on lean, sexy curves, increased 83 percent. Pins for “cloud bread,” a grain-free, lowcarb bread replacement, were up 73 percent, an indication the world is not yet ready to completely embrace carbs again. In the period between Christmas Eve and Jan. 2, pins for “bullet journals,” which is a minimalist organizational notebooking system, increased 67 percent, while “minimalist lifestyle” pinning in general went on the rise 19 percent and those on the subject of decluttering rose 35 percent. Other New Year, New You boosts: Jiu jitsu and its calorie-burning perks; pins on all things “holistic”; enthusiasts of the “21-day fix,” with guides for portion control, meal planning and clean eating; a 60 percent bump for “detox tea” pins; and a recent 41 percent bump for “dry brushing,” a DIY detox for the skin that has proponents advocating the use of a brush on dry skin in a certain pattern before showering to help release the body’s toxins. Pins for creating a “meditation space” have increased in the past few weeks by 49 percent, the site said.

Grandparents upset over kindergartener’s makeup Dear Abby: Our son and his wife have blessed us with a darling 6-yearold granddaughter, “Sophie,” who is the love of our lives. We live nearby and are very close. When we received her kindergarten school photo, she had on heavy lipstick and light eye shadow. My husband and I couldn’t contain our shock. Her parents said they thought she looked beautiful, and Sophie was made up that way because “she wanted to.” We were speechless. When we pick her up on weekends, she sometimes wears makeup, too. It makes her look like a 30-yearold. We think wearing it while playing dress-up is fun, but doing it outside the home takes away from her natural beauty. What are your thoughts on this? – Taken Aback In Kansas

Dear Taken Aback: Forgive me if this seems old-fashioned, but I think a kindergartener should be allowed to remain a child for at least a few years. I’m not only surprised your son and daughter-in-law would send their 6-year-old to school wearing makeup, I am equally surprised the school would allow it. And when Sophie spends the weekend with you, don’t you think YOU should make the rules about whether she’s allowed to wear makeup? Someone has to draw the line, but when you do, be prepared for some battles. Dear Abby: My mother passed away a few weeks ago. She lived with my husband and me for the last 2½ years of her life, and I was her caregiver. The week after she passed, my husband did not stay home even one

day with me. It was the loneliest, saddest time I have ever experienced. I feel he should have stayed with me without my having to ask him. He says all I had to do was ask. Frankly, I don’t think it was up to me to ask to be comforted. Who do you think is right? – Grieving In

Clearwater, Florida Dear Grieving: Please accept my

deepest sympathy for the loss of your beloved mother. You were a loving, caring daughter and, I’m sure, a comfort to her in her last years. It is sad that you and your husband have such a poor level of communication. You should not have had to ask him to remain by your side in your hour of need. He promised to do that at the altar, and from where I sit, he failed you. Dear Abby: I am a woman married

My wife replied they were planning a trip with just the female cousins – no men. I feel hurt and excluded, as I am a woman, too. Am I wrong? I can understand not wanting husbands on an all-girl trip, but am I not the exception? – Out Of

Setbacks can lead to unforeseen blessings Things just happen sometimes. We live in a world of unpredictability, and no matter how hard you try, you just can’t control everything. This is not to say whether that’s bad or good, just that unpredictability – or what I call the mystery of life – occurs no matter what, and a life welllived has much to do, in my opinion, with how we handle its mystery. Just when I think everything is going along smoothly, I get in a fender bender, or the job I once loved has become a daily torture. Then, as I sink into despair over my misfortune, the car repair is much

less expensive than I thought, or I get a promotion. I have to ask myself how much of that process I really controlled, and the answer I hear in my head is, “Not much, buster.” The thing is, sometimes the mystery appears negative for a long time, and sometimes it’s more dramatic than a fender bender, such as a sick kid, a dying relative, money problems or addiction issues. On the surface, there doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason; maybe just bad luck. So we decry our lousy circumstances, curse the gods, and trudge bravely forward toward the next unpredictable event.

But after some time has passed, the sick kid gets well or learns to manage her illness, and the family, once emotionally closed, becomes more loving, embracing differences and learning to see things through the eyes of gratitude for what they have. Who would have thought five years ago when all seemed so dark the illness would be, in essence, a gift to that family? I’m not one to make lemonade out of every lemon. I’ve just seen enough transformations to know if we are patient and trusting, unforeseeable changes always occur. We most likely will not know

what the changes will be, and they may not be in the time or of the sort we anticipated, but they always will happen. Sometimes, however, they are overlooked, either because enough time has passed or they are taken for granted. I have become much more content to embrace the mystery than I used to be. I don’t try quite as hard to make things the way I want them, hurry or even predict results. I’ve just been wrong so often I surrendered. The movies I run in my head are so often just my inner director making up goofy stories again, most of which are cartoons with

unfortunate endings. I guess my message is, keep the faith, because the tragedies of today are likely to be the unforeseen blessings of tomorrow. And if you can’t hang on to that message, then just accept it’s a possibility; that’s called embracing the mystery.

By LEE REICH The Associated Press Compost is the stuff of great gardens, the stuff that fuels dinner-platesize heads of broccoli and traffic-stopping dahlias. Compost also is good for trees, shrubs and lawns, making plants happier by keeping the soil around their roots moister and more nutritionally balanced. The odd thing is compost also is something gardeners sometimes skimp on.

Ingredients galore

Bags and bags of fallen leaves sitting at curbs and along driveways in the fall make this wastage all the more evident. And what about garbage bags filled with old plants cleared from the garden, houseplants and grass clippings? There’s no reason to relegate them

to burial in plastic bags in a landfill. They’re fine for compost. Vegetable trimmings, leftover food past its prime, even used paper plates can be turned into compost. Those plates once were living trees. Even old clothes, if made of cotton, wool or other natural materials, can be composted.

Composting convenience

A few roadblocks – besides that old bugbear, habit – keep people from composting. One is the perception composting is less convenient or more work than bagging up trash. Not really, if you keep a small container by the kitchen sink and dump its contents once daily on your compost pile; if you rake leaves into an out-of-the-way pile or beneath trees and shrubs; and if you just dump anything else compostable as it becomes available on your compost pile.

Some people fear a compost pile will attract animals or smell bad. Putting out fresh foods will attract animals, but that can be averted by composting with an animal-proof bin. Or get composting started indoors in a larger bucket by sprinkling a mix of sawdust and soil over each meal’s kitchen trimmings and plate scrapings. The contents will be odor and fly-free, and after a few weeks unattractive to scavengers; then dump it in your compost bin. As for smells, yes, a compost pile can develop offensive odors, but not if some thought is given to what’s added. (Read on.)

Compost basics

Without becoming a compost maven, you can make odor-free compost in a reasonable amount of time by doing only three things.

First, make compost in some sort of enclosure. It doesn’t need to be fancy, but it should hold a minimum of 1 cubic yard of material. Make your own or buy one – even better, two – locally or by mail order. Second, balance nitrogen-rich ingredients with carbon-rich ingredients. Nitrogen-rich materials include kitchen waste, grass clippings and other green, younger plant parts, as well as manures and nitrogen fertilizers, such as soybean or alfalfa meal. Carbon-rich things include wood chips, straw, paper and other older, usually dry plant materials. Third, be patient. You can get finished compost in a couple of months or less, but what’s the rush? Millions of years of evolution are supporting you when you make compost; no matter what you do, the raw materials eventually will rot into compost.

Why is there such a drastic difference between a diamond and graphite if they are both made up of pure Carbon?

It is true, diamonds and graphite, which is commonly used as pencil lead, are both made up of pure Carbon atoms. Graphite is soft, opaque, and metallic looking whereas diamond is hard, transparent and brilliant. The difference between the two relies heavily on the formation process and their crystal structures. Diamonds are formed deep within the Earth’s surface under extremely high temperatures and high pressure. Because of this formation process, diamond atoms are arranged in tight, threedimensional patterns. They are bonded more strongly - in all directions - than graphite atoms. Graphite’s atoms are arranged in strongly bonded layers, but the layers only have very weak bonds between them. To get an idea of these structure differences, hold your hands out with your palms parallel to each other. Even with your palms and fingers touching each other, it is still very easy to break the bond and move your hands in opposite directions all the while keeping your hands parallel. This is a simple display of the atom bonds of graphite. Now, clasp your hands together tightly, with your fingers interlaced. Try breaking that bond, you’ll find that it’s quite difficult without undoing your fingers. This is an example of how the atoms are bonded in a diamond. Sometimes, very rarely in nature, graphite can morph and form into a diamond. However, the high pressure and high temperatures needed to produce diamonds are among the reasons why this transformation doesn’t occur more often. So while the two minerals are composed of the exact same element, called polymorphs, their chemistry is very different. While we don’t have any beautiful displays of graphite in our store, unless you’d like to take a peek at my pencil jar, we do have many, many beautiful diamonds on display for you to enjoy!
