An adult bald eagle perches Monday in a tree along South River Road south of the Algonquin dam n Algonquin. Birdwatchers say as many as 12 eagles have been seen in the area, where they hunt for fish.
Winter, open water make easy viewing of bald eagles By KEVIN P. CRAVER email@example.com CARPENTERSVILLE – While workers drove down Main Street on a cold and drizzly Friday afternoon looking for lunch, a bald eagle just north of them was doing the same. He was perched on a tall
tree on an island just south of Carpentersville Dam, scanning for fish in water that was not frozen by the previous record cold snap. A juvenile bald eagle, which had not yet grown the species’ unmistakable white head and tail, flew up and perched on a higher branch of the same tree. And
on the other side of the island just upstream from Otto Engineering, four more adults and juveniles perched and flew. Below them swam a number of mallards, goldeneyes and mergansers, also drawn to the open water and blissfully unaware of the fact that while bald eagles prefer fish, a duck
dinner is the next best thing. The eagles were aware of the four photographers snapping away at the dam’s observation deck – eagle vision is at least four times sharper than ours, and they can spot prey a mile away – but they let them

MARENGO – A financial crisis at the Marengo Park District will leave residents without a public pool this summer and might force a voter referendum to improve district finances bleeding red ink. Faced with annual budget shortfalls, the five-person Park District Board recently shuttered its “Starfish Waters” pool for the 2014 season in a cost-cutting move that should save the district $32,000 annually, beginning with a new budget in May. The move still will leave the district with a $40,000 operating shortfall for the upcoming budget, said Business Director Heather Shepard. It comes after board members this week took out a $75,000 loan to get through the current budget year, which ends April 30. “The hope of the park district is that it could reopen the pool in the future, but financially it’s a difficult hurdle to get over,” Shepard said. The pool has operated with $30,000 annual deficits since 2002. It requires between $60,000 and $100,000 in repairs to replace an antiquated filtration system being run by 14 filters designed to support smaller, residential pools. The 2014 closure means the many teenagers who work as lifeguards will have to find new summer jobs and officials
“The pool definitely will be a big loss to the young kids this summer. They won’t have a lot of options.” Heather Shepard Marengo Park District business director

W.Va. spill latest case of coal tainting U.S. waters By DINA CAPPIELLO and SETH BORENSTEIN

Northwest Herald Web Poll Question
Money, debates in sheriff’s race We’re two months from the March primary, which means we’re likely days away from the letters-to-the-editor inbox filling up with election letters. (As an aside ... If you’re writing an election-related letter to the editor, please remember you are limited to 150 words. It doesn’t take that many words to say my candidate is great, and your candidate is not so great.) One race sure to dominate letters space is the Republican primary for McHenry County Sheriff between Andrew Zinke and Bill Prim. I’m pretty sure the over-under on the number of letters it takes before we get to name-calling is three. (Another aside, if you will. ... You can only have one letter published every 30 days. Keep this in mind as you try to incite letter-writers who support the candidate you don’t support. This includes the candidates themselves.) Since I last checked in on this race in this column space (yeah, it’s been a while; sorry, I’ve been busy), we’ve had a debate on who’s hosting debates and another set of campaign disclosure quarterly reports filed. Zinke, the McHenry County Undersheriff, took over the fundraising lead after the third-quarter campaign disclosure filings. He’s held on to that lead after the fourth quarter. Zinke has $38,418 in the bank compared to Prim’s $23,600.41. Zinke raised $21,401.23 in the quarter. Prim, a former
Des Plaines police commander, raised $10,310.00. Among Zinke’s top individual donors between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31 were Sage Products Chairman Vince Foglia ($6,000), Patricia Foglia ($5,000), the law firm Franks, Gerkin & McKenna ($1,000), Fabrik Molded Plastics President Keith Wagner ($1,000), the McHenry County Building & Construction Trades Council ($500) Martin Halwix of McHenry ($500), and Mark Justen of McHenry ($500). Zinke also received $1,061.23 from Citizens To Elect Sheriff Nygren, and $500 from the Construction & General Laborer’s District Council of Chicago and DRIVE, which is Democrat, Republican, Independent Voter Education – the PAC of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. Among Prim’s top individual donors between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31 were Bulk Lift International ($2,000), Tom Cooper of Wonder Lake ($2,000) and Rabine Group CEO Gary Rabine ($1,000), whose involvement with Patriots United led to Zinke rejecting an invitation from the group to debate Prim. Rabine and Brian Kelly are two of Patriots United’s seven board members. Illinois State Board of Elections docu-
By DAVID CRARY NEW YORK – A year after Russia imposed a ban on adoptions by Americans, some affected U.S. families are reluctantly looking elsewhere to adopt. Others refuse to abandon flickering hopes of uniting with the Russian children who won their hearts. Thirty-three of the families have filed appeals with the European Court of Human Rights, contending that the ban violates the rights of the orphans whose adoptions were thwarted. But there’s no tight time frame for the case, and even a favorable ruling might be unenforceable if Russia objects. Meanwhile, Russian authorities have spurned requests from U.S. officials to reconsider the ban, and the two governments have other volatile issues on their mutual agenda – including terrorism and various foreign policy differences – as the international community prepares for the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, next month. “I don’t see movement on the Russian side, and on the U.S. side we’ve heard nothing,” said Diana Gerson, a New York City rabbi who had her heart set on adopting a Russian toddler. “I feel in many ways we were abandoned.” By the Russians’ count, the ban halted the pending adoptions of 259 children. Roughly 230 U.S. families, some seeking to adopt more than one child, were affected – including scores of Americans who had bonded face-to-face with the children during visits to their orphanages. The Americans have been dropped from Russia’s official

This December 2012 photo provided by the family shows (from left) John, Jack and Renee Thomas at their home in Minnetrista, Minn. Jack was adopted from Russia in 2008. When the Russian ban on adoptions by Americans was imposed in 2013, the family was trying to adopt Jack’s biological brother, Nikolai. roster of prospective adoptive parents, and many of the orphans – possibly more than half – already have been placed with Russian families. At Christmas, several dozen of the Americans signed an open letter to the children they had hoped to adopt. The letter, published by some Russian media outlets, expressed gratitude to the Russian families who had taken in some of the children, while also hinting at a whirl of other emotions. “It has now been one year since we’ve held you in our arms and promised you we would be back and together as a family,” the letter said. “We only want you to know that we love you today, tomorrow, and forever even though we are miles across the ocean.” Throughout the 12 months, the issue has occasionally re-
surfaced, then faded from the news spotlight. There was a flurry of activity in May, when more than 150 members of Congress signed a letter to President Barack Obama, asking him to raise the issue with Russian President Vladimir Putin. A congressional delegation visiting Moscow urged Russian officials to allow completion of the pending adoptions. And many of the affected families visited Washington, seeking support for their cause. Hoping to ease Russia’s concerns about the treatment of Russian children in the U.S., the families proposed that any such adoptions in the future be subject to more stringent post-adoption scrutiny. Among those who spoke in Washington was 8-year-old
Jack Thomas, adopted from Russia in 2008 by Renee and John Thomas of Minnetrista, Minn. At the time the ban was imposed, the family was trying to adopt Jack’s biological brother, Nikolai. Over the past year, the family has lobbied energetically to get that adoption approved because of its exceptional nature; Renee Thomas says it is apparently the only one of the disrupted adoptions involving one sibling in the U.S. and another in Russia. Thomas says she’s traveling to Russia on Wednesday to make the case that Jack and Nikolai, who is now 5, should be reunited under the Russian policy of trying to keep siblings together as they grow up. “We want to respect the Russian system of justice,” she said.

An Asian carp, jolted by an electric current from a research boat, jumps from the Illinois River near Havana on June 13, 2012, during a study on the fish’s population. Bowhunters can shoot as many Asian carp as possible in a competition planned for July on the Illinois River in central Illinois.
Competition takes aim at Asian carp on Illinois River The ASSOCIATED PRESS EAST PEORIA – Bowhunters are being invited to shoot as many Asian carp as possible in a competition planned for July on the Illinois River in central Illinois. Organizers are planning the first Flying Fish Festival and Bowfishing Tournament for July 11 and 12 with an East Peoria sporting goods store as the lead sponsor. The (Peoria) Journal Star reported the event will offer cash prizes for the bowhunter who shoots the most of the invasive fish, some of which can leap high into the air if they are startled by boat motors. Asian carp dishes will be prepared and available at stands along the river. The tournament will charge
$120 a boat for up to four participants. Bowhunters, also known as bowfishers, use archery equipment to shoot fish. Asian carp are an invasive species and have infested the Mississippi River and many of its tributaries. A multimillion dollar effort is underway to keep them out of the Great Lakes, where they could disrupt the fishing industry. “This festival is about preservation and conservation on the Illinois River,” said Mike Everett of the Union Sportsmen’s Alliance at a news conference Friday at the Bass Pro Shops store, the lead sponsor of the event. Fish left over after the festival will be taken to a processing plant, said John Hamann, rural economic director for Peoria County.
ROCKFORD – Several school districts in northern Illinois are using GPS and electronic key cards to track buses and students to improve the safety and efficiency of their transport operations. The technology is being used in the city of Rockford and the smaller community of Freeport, The Rockford Register Star reported. Children swipe electronic cards as they get on and off
In the past, drivers had to pull over and check the seats if a dispatcher called trying to locate a child. Now, it’s done electronically. Dispatchers can also see in real time if a bus is delayed or stranded in bad weather. “It’s great for safety,” Rockford parent Melissa Champion said while picking up her son, Mason, 7, at a bus stop Thursday. “With all of the stuff that goes on in schools these days ... things like this make you feel better.”
the buses, and that’s allowed school officials to tell parents where their kids are with the click of a computer mouse. It’s helping dispatchers keep tabs on buses during snow storms and see if drivers are getting to their stops on time. District officials are even using the systems to analyze ridership numbers, route speeds and idle times to make their systems more efficient. Amber Miller, the principal of Johnson Elementary School in Rockford, said that
was useful in a case where a parent was confused about whether their child was going to ride the bus or needed to be picked up. “The parent didn’t know where the student was,” Johnson said. “I called. They used the system and saw the student got on the bus, and we were able to tell the parents the child was safe.” The Rockford School District installed $350,000 worth of GPS technology in 272 buses last year.

Tech industry: NSA reforms don’t go far enough The ASSOCIATED PRESS SAN FRANCISCO – Technology companies and industry groups took President Barack Obama’s speech on U.S. surveillance as a step in the right direction, but chided him for not embracing more dramatic reforms to protect people’s privacy and the economic interests of American companies that generate most
of their revenue overseas. “The president’s speech was empathetic, balanced and thoughtful, but insufficient to meet the real needs of our globally connected world and a free Internet,” said Ed Black, president of the Computer & Communications Industry Association, a group that represents Google, Microsoft, Facebook and other technology companies upset about the
NSA’s broad surveillance of online communications. On Friday, the president called for ending the government’s control of phone data from hundreds of millions of Americans and ordered intelligence agencies to get a court’s permission before accessing such records. He also issued a directive that intelligence-gathering can’t be employed to suppress criticism of
the United States or provide a competitive advantage to U.S. companies. In addition, the president directed Attorney General Eric Holder and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper to consider if new privacy safeguards could be added to online data gathering. Although those activities are only meant to target people outside the U.S. as part of
investigations, information on Americans sometimes gets swept up in the collection. Eight technology companies underscored their common interest in curbing the NSA by releasing a joint critique of Obama’s plans. They applauded the commitment to transparency and privacy protections for non-U.S. citizens, but also stressed that the president didn’t address all their
concerns. “Additional steps are needed on other important issues, so we’ll continue to work with the administration and Congress to keep the momentum going and advocate for reforms consistent with the principles we outlined in December,” said the statement from Google, Apple, Yahoo, Microsoft, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and AOL.
Soaring nut prices drawing thieves Calif. farmers band together to fight theft By SCOTT SMITH The Associated Press
AP file photo
A man puts his fingers in his ears Dec. 4 in New York’s Times Square. Noise is New York City’s biggest quality-of-life complaint. In 2013, the city’s 311 hotline got more than 260,000 calls about excessive noise, up 30 percent in two years.
Survey: Noise levels top NYC’s list of complaints
ESCALON, Calif. – The soaring value of California’s nut crops is attracting a new breed of thieves who have been making off with the pricey commodities by the truckload, recalling images of cattle rustlers of bygone days. This harvest season in the Central Valley, thieves cut through a fence and hauled off $400,000 in walnuts. An additional $100,000 in almonds was stolen by a driver with a fake
license. And $100,000 in pistachios was taken by a big rig driver who left a farm without filling out any paperwork. Investigators suspect low-level organized crime may have a hand in cases, while some nuts are ending up in Los Angeles for resale at farmers markets or disappearing into the black market. Domestic demand for specialty foods and an expanding Asian market for them have prompted a nut orchard boom in the state’s agricultural heartland. Such heists have become so common that an industry taskforce was recently formed to devise ways to thwart thieves. “The Wild West is alive and well in certain aspects,” said Danielle Oliver of the Califor-
nia Farm Bureau. “There’s always someone out there trying to make a quick dollar on somebody else’s hard work.” Amid the nut boom, farmers have torn out vineyards and other crops to plant nut trees to keep up with demand. Real estate firms, retirement funds and insurance companies have taken note by adding almonds, walnut and pistachio land to diversify their portfolios. As the nation’s top nut producer, the state grows more almonds and pistachios than any other country. Only China produces more walnuts, which have nearly tripled in price in the last five years to about $2 a pound, according to the California Walnut Board. The U.S. Department of

The ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK – No wonder they call New York the city that never sleeps. Who can get any shuteye with all the noise?! Screeching subway trains, honking cars, roaring planes, barking dogs and boisterous people make noise the Big Apple’s No. 1 quality-of-life complaint. A city hotline got more than 260,000 noise complaints last year. One of the lesser-known legacies of the recently ended 12-year tenure of Mayor Michael Bloomberg was one of the nation’s toughest noise codes. Tickets range from $70 for a barking dog to $350 for honking your horn to as much as $8,000 for a nightclub playing loud music. But despite thousands of violation notices filed with the city last year, health officials warn there are still plenty of places where decibels top 85, a level that can cause hearing damage with prolonged exposure.
On a concrete island in the middle of the square is a shipping container-turned-gourmet food cart called the SnackBox, where clerk Eduardo Zevallos spends his days amid the cacophony “trying to tune it out.” The worst noise? When an ambulance gets stuck in traffic just feet behind him on Broadway. “So for maybe five minutes, you have to listen to a drowning ambulance sound.”
SOUND SMORGASBORD On Manhattan’s East Side, residents of the Rivergate apartment building on 34th Street are subjected to a smorgasbord of sound: relentless whirring from helicopters at the East 34th Street Heliport, traffic whizzing by day and night on the Franklin D. Roosevelt Drive and ambulances heading for New York University’s Langone Medical Center. After years of complaints about 90-decibel noise levels in their apartments, Rivergate’s management installed sound-dampening panes.
8NATION BRIEFS Police: 2nd Philly school suspect released
Police charged a boy with aggravated assault and related crimes Saturday in connection with a shooting that wounded two students inside a Philadelphia high school gymnasium, but released a second boy from custody without charging him. Police were not releasing the name of the 17-year-old suspect who was charged, because it wasn’t immediately clear if he was to be tried as an adult. Police also didn’t identify the boy who was released. He had surrendered Friday night, hours after the 3:30 p.m. shooting at the Delaware Valley Charter High School in north Philadelphia. It remained unclear Saturday whether the shooting was accidental or intentional. The wounded boy and girl each were shot in an arm, and by Saturday police confirmed that both had been hit by the
Man in biker assault files legal claim against NYC NEW YORK – A man who was dragged from his SUV and beaten by a group of motorcyclists following a frightening chase on a Manhattan highway has filed a legal notice saying he intends to sue New York City over the attack. Prosecutors said an off-duty police detective was among the bikers who pursued and beat Alexian Lien after a confrontation on the West Side Highway. The New York Post reported that Lien filed a formal “notice of claim” against the city Dec. 24. It accuses the police department of failing to properly train officers. A spokeswoman for the city’s Legal Department said it would defend the claim if it proceeds to a full lawsuit.

Agriculture reported that through 2012 the state’s almond crop was valued at $5 billion per year, pistachios were over $1 billion and walnuts were over $1.5 billion. “Right now, everybody wants to be a nut grower because it’s kind of like the gold rush of the 1850s,” said Ripon almond farmer Kevin Fondse of Fondse Brothers Inc. “Everybody wants the gold.” That frenzy has spawned crime. In a brazen heist in October, thieves made off with 140,000 pounds of processed walnuts from GoldRiver Orchards. The thief cut through wooden fence posts in the dead of night, hooked up a truck to three gondola trailers brimming with nuts and drove off.

Many remain wary of West Virginia water The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHARLESTON, W.Va. – The smell lingers – the slightly sweet, slightly bitter odor of a chemical that contaminated the water supply of West Virginia’s capital more than a week ago. It creeps out of faucets and shower heads. It wafts from the Elk River, the site of the spill. Sometimes it hangs in the cold nighttime air. For several days, a majority of Charleston-area residents have been told their water is safe to drink, that the concentration of a chemical used to wash coal is so low that it won’t be harmful. Restaurants have reopened – using tap water to wash dishes and produce, clean out their soda
fountains and make ice. But as long as people can still smell it, they’re wary – and given the lack of knowledge about the chemical known as MCHM, some experts say their caution is justified. “I would certainly be waiting until I couldn’t smell it anymore, certainly to be drinking it,” said Richard Denison, a scientist with the Environmental Defense Fund who has followed the spill closely. The Jan. 9 spill from a Freedom Industries facility on the banks of the Elk River, less than 2 miles upstream from Charleston’s water treatment plant, led to a ban on water use that affected 300,000 people. Four days later, officials started to lift the ban in one
area after another, saying tap water was safe for drinking because the concentration of the chemical dipped below one part per million, even though the smell was still strong at that level. By Friday afternoon, nearly all of the 300,000 people impacted had been told the water was safe. Late Wednesday, however, health officials issued different guidance for pregnant women, urging them not to drink tap water until the chemical is entirely undetectable. The Centers for Disease Control said it made that recommendation out of an abundance of caution because existing studies don’t provide a complete picture of how the chemical affects humans.

UConn professor delves into spirituality in daily life The ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW HAVEN, Conn. – University of Connecticut Professor Bradley Wright has all types of questions for his research: Did you pray in the last 24 hours? To what extent are you feeling nurtured or angry with God? Do you feel a sense of purpose right now? And he’d like the answers in real time, launching a website that sends texts to smartphones that it’s time for participants to take the twice-daily survey. It’s part of an ambitious look by Wright and other researchers into the role of spirituality in the daily lives of Americans and its links to well-being. Wright is hoping the ef-
fort will shed light on a wide range of issues: Do people feel closer to God or more distant after they’re on Facebook? How did attending church service affect them? Does spirituality help with social isolation? Bradley Does amount Wright of sleep affect spiritual awareness? “In general I think that over the coming years this will produce a number of findings that I think will help redefine how we understand day-to-day spirituality,” Wright said. Wright, an associate pro-
fessor of sociology who wrote the 2010 book “Christians Are Hate-Filled Hypocrites... and Other Lies You’ve Been Told,” is overseeing www. soulPulse.org to gather data for researchers to study. Participants fill out brief questionnaires for two weeks, answering a range of questions on health to volunteer work at church or a charity. “It just opens a whole new category of data about spirituality, personal growth, personal characteristics that people value,” Wright said. “We’re giving people a chance to take a two-week snapshot of their life. This is just an interesting way for people to learn about themselves.”

8WORLD BRIEFS Officials: Iranian diplomat killed in Yemen SANAA, Yemen – Officials in Yemen say an Iranian diplomat has been killed in a drive-by shooting in the capital, Sanaa. Three security officials said the diplomat was leaving the
Iranian ambassador’s house in the Hadda neighborhood when assailants opened fire on his car. The officials said the diplomat, who is in charge of administrative affairs in the embassy, was wounded and later died in the hospital. A medical official
confirmed the diplomat’s death. Relations between Iran and Yemen have soured over what Sanaa calls Iranian meddling in its domestic affairs. Another Iranian diplomat was abducted by gunmen in July and is still in captivity.

Inspectors arrive in Iran to monitor nuclear deal TEHRAN, Iran – A team of international inspectors have arrived in Iran ahead of the Islamic Republic opening its nuclear program as part of a landmark deal struck with world powers.
Iranian state television said the inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency arrived Saturday. Its report said nuclear engineer Massimo Aparo will lead the team, which will visit Natanz and Fordo, Iran’s uranium enrichment facilities.
The deal takes effect Monday. Under it, Iran will limit its enrichment of uranium in return for some Western sanctions to be lifted. The deal will last for six months as Iran and the world powers negotiate a final deal.

Two adult bald eagles perch in a tree along South River Road south of the Algonquin dam Monday in Algonquin. Birdwatchers say as many as 12 eagles have been seen in the area where they hunt for fish.
Species’ population has rebounded • EAGLES Continued from page A1 conduct their long-range admiration. Photographers Chris Mussachio of Algonquin and George Barrer of Elgin snapped pictures of the perched eagle, and of others flying down the river, on their tripod-mounted cameras. While photography is a hobby for them, the two also sell their prints. “We’ve got three, four months to get these guys, and that’s it. By March, they’re gone,” Mussachio said. That’s not exactly true – while winter is the best and easiest time in northern Illinois to see them, their increasing numbers mean that more of them are sticking around in the warm-weather months to nest and raise chicks. The species has made an amazing comeback over the past 40 years – the nation that adopted the bird as its national symbol came very close to wiping them out. Their numbers, estimated at 300,000 to 500,000 when the Second Continental Congress declared the bald eagle the national symbol in 1782, dwindled to 487 nesting pairs in the lower 48 states by 1963, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The decline, started through hunting and loss of habitat, accelerated with the industrial pollution of waterways and the liberal use of pesticides, especially DDT, which made eagles’ eggs too fragile to survive. The declaration of the bald eagle as an endangered species in 1967, and the banning of DDT in the United States five years later, helped the species rebound, along with dedicated conser-
Where to find bald eagles During the winter months, bald eagles can be found in locations with free or running water and large, older trees. The Fox River is the best chance, although large lakes also offer sighting opportunities.
Responsible birding People who observe birds have a responsibility not to disrupt their habitat or activities in order to preserve nature for others. The following tips come from the American Birding Association Principles of Birding Ethics: n Exercise restraint and caution while observing or recording them. n Keep well back from nests, roosts, display areas and important feeding sites. n Keep habitat disruption to a minimum – stay on roads, trails and paths where they exist. n Respect the law – do not violate rules set on public lands, and do not enter private property without the owner’s permission. n If you spot a rare bird, consider the likely disruption before advertising its presence to others.
On the Web To view photos and video of bald eagles locally, visit NWHerald.com. You can learn more about birding and bird conservation at the American Birding Association website at www.aba.org, or the National Audubon Society at www.audubon.org.
vation efforts. The Fish and Wildlife Service estimated at least 9,789 breeding pairs existed in the lower 48 states
in 2007, when the bald eagle was removed from the lists of endangered and threatened species. Bald eagles like open water and tall, old trees, which makes much of the Fox River ideal for viewing them. In weather cold enough to freeze large bodies of water, the best places to view them are at dams, such as the ones in McHenry, Algonquin, Carpentersville and Elgin. The cold weather also makes them more prone to standing still to conserve body heat, and makes them less territorial and likely to group together. However, more pairs are nesting in the area during spring mating season, said McHenry County Audubon Society President Randy Schietzelt. Besides the Fox River, other nesting locations for breeding season include Glacial Park in Ringwood and Moraine Hills State Park near McHenry. Bald eagles tend to mate for life, and their nests, called aeries, are the largest of any North American bird and can easily weigh a ton. If you go looking for bald eagles or other birds, the rules of common sense and common courtesy apply. Don’t do anything to disrupt birds’ activities or their habitat, stay on paths on public land and don’t enter private property without the owner’s permission. Behind Mussachio and Barrer at the dam stood Chris Payonk of Carpentersville, also taking photos of the perched eagle. For him, watching bald eagles is therapeutic – he has been on disability for the past several years after suffering two heart attacks and a stroke. “It just helps me to relax, and concentrate, and remember things,” Payonk said.

ISTANBUL – The main, Western-backed Syrian opposition group voted Saturday in favor of attending a coming peace conference aimed at ending the country’s bloody civil war, paving the way for the first direct talks between the rival sides in the nearly three-year conflict. The vote in Istanbul came as food supplies began entering a besieged rebel-held Palestinian refugee camp in Syria’s capital for the first time in months, an apparent goodwill gesture by President Bashar Assad’s government ahead of the peace conference, Palestinian and United Nations officials said.
The Syrian National Coalition was under huge pressure from its Western and Arab sponsors to attend the peace talks, scheduled to open Wednesday in the Swiss city of Montreux. The Syrian government has already said it will attend the U.N.-sponsored talks. The Coalition’s leader, Ahmad al-Jarba, said in a speech late Saturday that they are heading to the conference “without any bargain regarding the principles of the revolution and we will not be cheated by Assad’s regime.” “The negotiating table for us is a track toward achieving the demands of the revolution – at the top of them removing the butcher from power,” Jar-
ba said. But many Coalition members are hesitant to attend a conference that has little chance of success and will burn the last shred of credibility the group has with powerful rebels on the ground, who reject the talks. Many members boycotted the Istanbul meetings that began Friday, forcing the Coalition’s legal committee to approve the decision in a simple majority vote. Although Islamic rebel groups reject any talks with the government, the head of the Western-backed Supreme Military Council, Gen. Salim Idris, said in a statement that he backs “a solution that guarantees a political transition of power.”
Voters back new Egypt constitution The ASSOCIATED PRESS CAIRO – Almost everyone who cast ballots supported Egypt’s new constitution in this week’s referendum, results announced Saturday show, but a boycott by Islamists and low youth turnout suggest the country is still dangerously divided. Nearly 20 million voters backed the new constitution, almost double the number of those who voted for one drafted in 2012 under the govern-
ment of toppled Islamist President Mohammed Morsi. Only a sliver of voters – 1.9 percent – voted against the charter after a massive government-sponsored campaign supporting it and the arrest of activists campaigning against it. “Despite a milieu of intense social upheaval and acts of terrorism and sabotage that sought to derail the process, Egyptians have now marked yet another defining moment in our roadmap to democracy,” presidential spokesman Ehab
Badawy said. “The outcome represents nothing less than the dawning of a new Egypt.” The expected overwhelming support for the charter is seen as key to legitimizing Egypt’s military-backed interim government and the political plan put in place since Morsi’s ouster in July. Analysts say it also suggests military chief Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, who led the coup against Morsi, has enough popular support to make a rumored run for the presidency himself.
EPA identified 255 cases of water damage • WATER Continued from page A1 waterways, wells and lakes with far more insidious and longer-lasting contaminants than the chemical that spilled out of a tank farm on the banks of the Elk River. Chief among them are discharges from coal-fired power plants that alone are responsible for 50 to 60 percent of all toxic pollution entering the nation’s water, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Thanks to even tougher air pollution regulations underway, more pollution from coalfired power plants is expected to enter the nation’s waterways, according to a recent EPA assessment. “Clean coal means perhaps cleaner atmosphere, but dirtier water,” said Avner Vengosh, a Duke University researcher who has monitored discharges from power plant waste ponds and landfills in
North Carolina. In that state, Vengosh and other researchers found contaminants from coal ash disposal sites threatening the drinking water for Charlotte, the nation’s 17th-largest city, with cancer-causing arsenic. “It is kind of a time bomb that can erupt in some kind of specific condition,” Vengosh said. The water shows no signs of arsenic contamination now. In southeastern Ohio, tainted water draining from abandoned coal mines shuttered a century ago still turns portions of the Raccoon Creek orange with iron and coats the half-submerged rocks along its path white with aluminum. Public drinking water systems in 14 West Virginia counties where mining companies are blasting off mountaintops to get to coal seams exceeded state safe drinking water standards seven times more than in nonmining counties, according to a study published in a water quality journal in 2012. The systems provided water
for more than a million people. The water quality monitoring in mining areas is so inadequate that most health violations likely were not caught, said Michael Hendryx, the study’s author and a professor of applied health at Indiana University. The EPA, in an environmental assessment last year, identified 132 cases where coal-fired power plant waste has damaged rivers, streams and lakes, and 123 where it has tainted underground water sources, in many cases legally, officials said. Among them is the massive failure of a waste pond at a Tennessee Valley Authority power plant in 2008. More than 5 million cubic yards of ash poured into a river and spoiled hundreds of acres in a community 35 miles west of Knoxville. Overall, power plants contributed to the degradation of 399 bodies of water that are drinking water sources, according to the EPA.

Official: Pool ‘big loss to the young kids this summer’ • POOL Continued from page A1 will be forced to reorganize a few programs that use the pool. Residents also won’t have a public swimming option in their hometown – a traditional selling point for many suburban communities looking to attract young families. The district has been working with Woodstock on extending Woodstock pool rates to Marengo residents for the 2014 season, but the details have not been finalized, Shepard said. “The pool definitely will be a big loss to the young kids this summer,” Shepard said. “They won’t have a lot of options.” The pool represented one of the last remaining amenities for a park district plagued by financial mismanagement and revenue problems in the last decade. Officials have already cut staff to three full-time
employees and closed the district’s day care facility. Despite ending 2012 with a minor surplus, the district has been hamstrung by nearly $1.96 million in outstanding debt tied to a 2003 expansion of its Indian Oaks facility. Voters at the time rejected a referendum to fund the expansion, but former board members proceeded anyway with bonds structured to escalate each year based on the assumption that the district’s tax base would grow. Instead, the district’s base shrunk, losing more than $100,000 in property taxes the last four years combined. Board members in 2012 restructured $1.15 million in debt and leveled annual payments to be retired in 2020. Other financial needs are beginning to mount. With no extra money at its disposal, the district’s list of repairs has increased to 42 items, ranging from road resurfacing to new laundry machines. The
recent cold temperatures blew out two furnaces and froze 33 sprinklers inside the district’s main facility. Board members will meet later in January to begin prioritizing the repairs and brainstorming ideas to increase revenue and close the shortfall. The financial solutions may include contacting private individuals and businesses for donations. But the “number one” priority is crafting a referendum that would ask voters in Union and Riley Township to contribute tax dollars to the park district, Shepard said. The potential referendum follows extensive efforts to shed more costs and keep the pool open in 2014, said Board President Scott McCann. Those failed efforts included grant opportunities and privatizing ownership of the pool, he said. “We have tried every angle, and we have reached dead ends,” McCann said.

Not enough information regarding the coroner While we certainly wish her good health, we’re concerned about the lack of information regarding the supervision of the McHenry County Coroner’s Office. Dr. Anne Majewski has been on medical leave since October, although it took reporters some time to gather even that much basic information. We respect that she has some right to privacy, but the public is For the record entitled to more information than Diagnosing the problem is it’s received. difficult because there is so Part of the much unknown, which has difficulty in determining what been a theme of Majewski’s administration. is happening is because Majewski doesn’t answer to other McHenry County staff. She is an elected official, so the only people she answers to are members of the public. Majewski said she had computer equipment installed in her home so that she can run the day-to-day operations of the office, which she maintains she has been doing since Nov. 4. “I have had full access to all information and regular contact with my staff, enabling me to fulfill all my duties as coroner, including, but not limited to, the review of all case documents, payroll and budgetary responsibilities, writing press releases, and responding to correspondence,” Majewski told the Northwest Herald in an email. We don’t doubt that she is doing the best job she can from home, but home is not the best place for an elected public official to do the most effective job possible. Advancements in technology have made it possible for many to work at home either completely or for large portions of their responsibility. But stretches of several months without appearing in the office is shortchanging taxpayers – medical issue or otherwise. Majewski is more than a staff member. She is the person voters put in charge of running the office. Diagnosing the problem is difficult because there is so much unknown, which has been a theme of Majewski’s administration since she won an election for the office without any opposition more than a year ago. Answering only when asked why she isn’t in the office and not knowing when she’ll return puts the public in an awkward position. We hope Majewski’s health improves for her benefit and so this no longer will be an issue. In the meantime, we wonder whether it’s in the best interest of taxpayers for her to step down – even temporarily – while she recovers from whatever is ailing her.
National Health Service: Dogma vs. experience BELFAST, Northern Ireland – While the Obama administration offers life support to its Affordable Care Act, in the UK, a growing number of people are asking whether it’s time to pull the plug on the National Health Service, which is in critical condition. For many years, the UK media have carried stories that not only bode ill for the future of government-run health care, but also continue to serve as a “code blue” warning to the U.S. as to what might be in our future if we decide to go down that road. Writing in The Daily Telegraph under the headline, “It’s time to make difficult decisions about the NHS,” columnist Judith Woods said, “The NHS, dying on its feet for decades, is in a critical state. The promised injection of cash may stabilize it temporarily, but the chances of a full recovery are nil.” She is not alone. A headline in The Guardian, declares the NHS “on the brink of extinction.” While in America there are concerns about an insufficient number of younger people signing up for Obamacare, in the UK among the latest causes for concern is a plan that the Guardian writes “... would only see new
VIEWS Cal Thomas drugs licensed for NHS if judged to be a benefit to wider society.” Does this sound like a close relative of eugenics? Let us not talk of “death panels,” or should we? In the UK, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence decides whether new medicines should be approved. Might it someday also come down to some official deciding who gets treatment and who doesn’t? Changing the name of the decision-making entity doesn’t alter the intent, or the outcome. Already, according to the Daily Mail, citing a report by the European Commission, “Britain has fewer doctors per person than nearly all other European countries.” There are only 2.71 doctors for every 1,000 people. The EC reports the UK ranked “24th out of 27 countries in the EU, behind some of the poorest countries, including Bulgaria, Estonia and Latvia.” General practitioners are paid 1,500 pounds (about $2,500) a shift to cover nights and week-
ends in overburdened ERs. Can one see this crisis looming on America’s horizon as the current supply of doctors proves inadequate to treat a flood of new Obamacare patients? What’s more, stories about incompetence and corruption within the NHS, once the exception, are now common. “Blood donors turned away by clinics’ incompetence,” says a headline in the Daily Mail. The NHS was supposed to reduce the number of people who seek treatment in emergency rooms. Instead, the BBC reports, some patients visit them as many as four times a week. Citing data from 183 sites obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, BBC News writes, “... nearly 12,000 people made more than 10 visits to the same unit in 2012-13. A small number of those – just over 150 – attended more than 50 times.” The same has proven true for Obamacare. Obama said that coverage would result in fewer ER visits, when in fact studies already show that the newly covered are visiting ERs more frequently. An editorial in The Daily Telegraph said, “The NHS is cursed by a devotion to dogma.”
People have come to expect “free” care, and the cost of “free” is breaking the system. The editorial recommends everyone visiting a GP should be required to pay 10 pounds ($16) to “discourage those with minor ailments” from making a trip to the ER. Dr. Mark Porter, chairman of the council at the British Medical Association, has said that if the NHS were a country, it would barely have a credit rating. He warns: “A growing and aging population, public health problems like obesity, and constant advances in treatment and technology are all contributing to push NHS costs well above general inflation.” If the NHS can’t be sustained in the UK, why would anyone believe an American experience will be different? The ACA, of course, is not nationalized health care (people pay insurance premiums, after all) but some think it could evolve into that. If it’s a question of dogma vs. experience, experience should prevail. The UK experience with nationalized health care can teach America something. • Readers may email Cal Thomas at tcaeditors@tribune. com.
No matter what he said, Obama’s still spying on you Bothered that the government has the metadata from all your calls, so that it can map out the details of your life at the click of a button? If you really are, little in President Barack Obama’s much-hyped speech on intelligence gathering should allay your concerns. True, Obama announced that he would “end” the metadata collection program “as it currently exists.” But he never explained how, ignoring the recommendations of his own handpicked review group and instead asking his administration for new technical options on the bulk storage of data by the end of March. If you remember the president’s promise to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, you know that “ending” something means doing it subject to realistic constraints – which may keep the program from ending at all. And if you don’t have short-term amnesia, you’ll recall that the Obama administration isn’t exactly bristling with skilled hightech advisers who can build complicated new solutions to technological problems. The president must have realized that skeptics might be unimpressed by a promise to try to do something unspecified at an indeterminate future time. So he added some reforms related to the bulk collection of metadata that could be implemented right away.
VIEWS Noah Feldman In one, he announced that the intelligence community would from now on only “pursue phone calls that are two steps removed from a number associated with a terrorist organization instead of three.” In the other, he directed the attorney general to arrange that “during this transition period” the database would be queried “only after a judicial finding, or in a true emergency.” On the surface, these proposals sound pretty substantial – but they aren’t. In a game of Six Degrees of Osama bin Laden, the move from three “hops” to two is minimal. If the suspected target phone numbers belong to people in the U.S., the odds are good that they have called some widely used number – the Comcast helpline, for example. Anyone else who has ever called that number still would be within bounds. Your friends’ friends are still two hops away, even if your friends’ friends’ friends’ are now not within the standard range. Ask yourself: Would the intelligence community have agreed to the three to two reduction if they thought it would

substantially reduce their capacity to monitor terrorists? Querying the bulk database only after a judicial finding sounds much better. Yet the president never said that he was talking about an individualized or specific judicial finding. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court already has approved the most general requests imaginable. Those that already exist could well be included in the words “after a judicial finding” – which would mean no change at all during this “transition.” And what, pray tell, counts as a “true emergency” in the context of counterterrorism? As for the longer-term solutions, the president could have announced that the government would no longer hold onto the bulk-collected metadata. The review panel recommended this change. And it was no congeries of radicals. The five men included, among others, Michael Morell, the former deputy Central Intelligence Agency director; Richard Clarke, White House counterterrorism adviser under Bill Clinton and George W. Bush; and former Obama administration official (and my Harvard and Bloomberg View colleague) Cass Sunstein. Obama rejected the group’s recommendation of leaving the metadata with the companies that generated it in the first place. His proffered explanation was that
8THE FIRST AMENDMENT
All of this comes back to the question of whether you really care that the government might be looking. relying on the telecommunications companies might require them “to alter their procedures in ways that raise new privacy concerns.” Maybe – but the argument misses the very essence of the liberty to privacy that is involved here. When you make a phone call, you know the telephone company has the information about that call. But you trust the telephone company not to exploit that information to track your patterns of movement and affiliation (at least not without your consent), because it is a private firm that would be heavily criticized if it did so. The government, on the other hand, is a completely different story. Without specific legal or constitutional prohibitions on accessing your metadata, the government has no reason whatever not to sneak a look. Put another way, I may have privacy interests relative to my phone carrier, but I don’t have privacy rights unless the law creates them. And constitutional rights, at least,
are in U.S. restricted to protecting me against the government, not against private parties acting entirely on their own. All this comes back to the question of whether you really care that the government might be looking. One way to read the minimal changes suggested by Obama’s speech is that the administration is gambling that you don’t. The public might have been temporarily upset by Edward Snowden’s revelations. But to the extent We the People are made up of Gmail users, we simply may not care that much about metadata privacy. If this is right, there will be no significant negative reaction to Obama’s speech, and the intelligence community can get back to business more or less as usual. Left on the margin will be those of us who, in our old- fashioned way, think that the government’s intrusions into our privacy are more to be feared than private industry’s – and that the Constitution was designed to protect us from the government that is itself supposed to protect us. • Noah Feldman, a law professor at Harvard University and the author of “Cool War: The Future of Global Competition,” is a Bloomberg View columnist.

McHenry County Citizens for Choice Speaking Out! “Access to affordable, effective and safe birth control was achieved only by standing up to entrenched sectarian interests who were determined to bend the law to their oppressive dogma. We broke their grip, and we can’t go back now.” Rev. Barry Lynn, Executive Director, Americans United for Separation of Church and State “Once the government is able to deny the right to privacy, they can legislate against anyone’s sex life. All of our ability to make our own informed decisions about our sex lives becomes in jeopardy.” Rev. Debra Haffner, The Religious Institute
“Trust women to make their own choices” Dr. George Tiller
“We need to make population and family planning household words... If family planning is anything it is a public health matter.” George H. W. Bush, Floor Statement, House of Representatives, 2/24/69 “The ﬁrst right of every child is to be born wanted.” Margaret Sanger, Founder, American Birth Control League “I am often asked, ‘Aren’t you happy now that the struggle is over?’ But I cannot agree that it is... All freedom must be safeguarded and held.” Margaret Sanger, Founder, American Birth Control League “If women want any rights more than they’s got, why don’t they just take them, and not be talking about it.” Sojourner Truth – evangelist, abolitionist and social reformer – 1797-1883 “Religion without humanity is very poor human stuff.” Sojourner Truth – evangelist, abolitionist and social reformer – 1797-1883
“Women will not be subjected to second-hand citizenship again.” Jane Christensen – MCCC Supporter
“Catholics do not support the denial of services to people in vulnerable situations. On the contrary, our commitment to social justice means that we go the extra mile in supporting them.” Jon O’Brien, President, Catholics for Choice “I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do, because I note it always coinciding with their own desires.” Susan B. Anthony “The ‘Religious Right’s’ goal, ultimately, is not just to ban abortions but to seize control of women’s fertility, moral agency, and destiny. They are determined to turn women into mere biological actors, instead of the responsible moral agents God created all people to be.” Reverend Harry Knox, President and CEO, Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice “MCCC is one of the most effective pro-choice groups in Illinois. Your commitment is amazing and it is an honor to share this 41st Anniversary of Roe with you on behalf of all Americans.” Terry Cosgrove, President and CEO, Personal PAC
“Laws restricting abortions so dramatically shape the lives of women and only women, that their denial of equality hardly need elaboration... Laws restricting access to abortion thereby place a real and substantial burden on women’s ability to participate in society as equals.” Prof. Laurence Tribe, Harvard University “Being pro-choice is not being pro-abortion. Being pro-choice is trusting the individual to make the right decision for herself and her family, and not entrusting that decision to anyone wearing the authority of government in any regard.” Hillary Rodham Clinton – presidential candidate “We really need to get over this love affair with the fetus and start worrying about children.” Dr. Jocelyn Elders, former US Surgeon General
“We need a strong voice for CHOICE now, more than ever before.” Dan Larsen – MCCC Supporter
“No woman can call herself free who does not own and control her body. No woman can call herself free until she can choose consciously whether she will or will not be a mother.” Margaret Sanger, Woman and the New Race “It is unthinkable to allow complete strangers, whether individually or collectively as state legislators or others in government, to make such personal decisions for someone else.” Sarah Weddington, Esq., A Question of Choice – argued Roe v. Wade before U.S. Supreme Court “If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament.” Florynce Kennedy, Esq. – social activist, co-founder of NOW “To protect their health and the health of their families, women must have access to safe, legal abortion services without interference from politicians, as protected by the highest court in Roe v. Wade.” Carol R. Brite, President and CEO, Planned Parenthood of Illinois “Women must be allowed and encouraged to make the decision that is right for them, whether that is to become pregnant or to remain pregnant.” Jon O’Brien – President, Catholics for Choice “If you don’t want to use birth control, don’t. If you don’t want to have an abortion, don’t. Don’t try to limit the choices of those who do!” Jennifer Galloway – MCCC supporter “Men are not truly free unless women’s reproductive rights are protected.” Terry Kappel – MCCC supporter “A woman’s sovereignty over her body must not be abridged.” Debs Wallner – MCCC supporter “Women’s reproductive rights are not a political football. They are basic women’s rights. If we are a truly free people let’s prove it by treating our mothers and our motherland with the respect they deserve.” Kasthuri Henry – MCCC supporter
“I am the son of an American woman, husband of another, and father of a daughter. No one has the right to stiﬂe choice in a free society!” Michael Henry – MCCC supporter “A woman’s belief is her choice - and remains with her. A woman’s rights should not need distinction from human rights.” Catherine M. Lee – MCCC supporter “Here in the 21st century, it’s essential that every person is treated with respect and value.” Robert Levin – MCCC supporter
“Women’s rights are human rights.” Dee Manny – MCCC Director
“Catholic by birth and education, and 100% pro-choice.” Mary Ewert – MCCC Director “Women are autonomous; we don’t need anyone’s permission.” Judy Vandenboom – MCCC Director “Never again should women be forced to have back alley abortions or to use coat hangers to terminate a pregnancy, which often resulted in death.” Emele Peters – MCCC Director “Trust women with our own reproductive choices. It’s wonderful to have a pro-choice organization in our community that understands the issues.” Sheila Feeney – MCCC Director “I support Roe v. Wade, birth control, and any right for women to choose what they do with their bodies. This is an ethical decision several thousand years in the making.” Robert Waddell – MCCC supporter
“I am happy to add my name to those of my pro-choice friends.” Kay Hedum – MCCC supporter
“To be in denial of the plight of the woman is irresponsible and cruel. “ Jill Hartman – MCCC supporter “Having a child is a commitment. A woman shouldn’t HAVE to have it, just because she gets pregnant.” Dawn Anderson – MCCC supporter “If you’re against abortion don’t have one.” Nancy Schwab – MCCC Director “I want our grandchildren to have rights of choice!” Ilda M. Castellanos – MCCC supporter “Protect our daughters’ freedoms to make family planning choices with their doctors. Fight for Reproductive Justice!” Loreen Keller – MCCC supporter “Please hear our Mother Earth; we are killing her with overpopulation.” Mary Jo Neuffer – MCCC supporter “Restrictions on a woman’s reproductive decisions deny her equality.” Irene Raven - MCCC supporter
“While democracy must have its organization and controls, its vital breath is individual rights.”

MARENGO FIRE DISPLACES FAMILY MARENGO – A Marengo family was displaced Saturday after a fire left their home along Grant Highway uninhabitable. The Marengo Fire Protection District responded at 11:30 a.m. to a structure fire at 7524 S. Grant Highway, said Captain John Kimmel. Firefighters immediately saw heavy smoke and flames billowing from the front of the house and requested assistance from 14 area departments. The family had safely evacuated the house by the time firefighters arrived, Kimmel said. No one was injured in the incident. Firefighters extinguished the blaze by 2:30 p.m. Marengo firefighters are still investigating the fire’s cause and determining the property damage. Departments from Belvidere, Boone County, Crystal Lake, Elgin, Genoa-Kingston, Genoa, Hampshire, Harvard, Hebron, Huntley, Kirkland, Lakewood, Union and Woodstock assisted Marengo.

Vandalism hits FRG Metra
Part of station to close earlier after reports of damages News to your phone
By JOSEPH BUSTOS firstname.lastname@example.org FOX RIVER GROVE – The number of hours the Fox River Grove Metra station’s indoor warming building is open will be reduced within a week because of recent vandalism, the village president said. Currently, the station is open from 5 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Village President Bob Nunamaker said the plan is to have the station close after the 10:11 a.m. train to Chicago and reopen at 5 a.m. Signs have been torn from walls,
Text the keyword NWHFOXRIVERGROVE to 74574 to sign up for FOX RIVER GROVE news text alerts from the Northwest Herald. Message and data rates apply. display cases have been ripped off the wall and locks have been jammed, among other things, Nunamaker said. “We’ve been the victim of tremendous vandalism,” he said. The indoor warming area was part of a $3.5 million project to update and
expand the village’s Metra station. The area included vendor space and bathrooms. The station also includes a second warming area at the east end of the platform. Security cameras have yet to be installed and will require connecting to Comcast lines across Route 14, Nunamaker said. Also, Sheryl Glenn Murray, who owns the Morning Grind Cafe at the Pingree Road Station, plans to open a new location at the Fox River Grove Metra station. The business is expected to open within a few weeks, Nuna-
maker said. After that point, the warming building will be open the same hours as the business operates, he said. “It’s very disappointing,” Nunamaker said. Nunamaker said it’s the responsibility of the village to make repairs up to $5,000. “It’s such a weird time of year to have vandalism,” said Village Trustee Michael Schiestel. “Usually, if someone is homeless and needs a place to stay, they don’t rip the handles off the wall.”

Sociology teacher Marce Kersten nominated Materna for being the most well-rounded student Kersten has had in class for the last 21 years. The Algonquin student juggled multiple AP courses, played varsity sports and contributed to his community by speaking to eighth-graders about the value of AP classes. “After having him in class, I continue to have faith in the future generation, and I am a better human being for having known him,” Kersten wrote in her nomination letter to Edward Jones.

bundled up to take on the 9-hole, 32par course constructed on Crystal Lake’s frozen surface. Coolers and mini charcoal grills were fastened to sleds and hand-constructed carts to keep the participants fed, watered and laughing. The event, hosted by the Crystal Lake Park District, had been canceled in the past because of weather, but this year’s freezing temperatures made for a successful event.
HUNTLEY – Exponential growth, increased demand, larger facilities and the rise of technology have all underscored the many changes at the Huntley Area Public Library in the past 25 years. But the community’s support throughout the transformations has been the common denominator, said library spokeswoman Leigh Ann Porsch. Huntley’s small farming community created

that support on Nov. 7, 1989, when voters approved a referendum to create the village’s first library district. Now, 25 years later, library officials have events planned throughout 2014 to celebrate the silver anniversary and thank a community
that has kept growing since the historic vote. “As small as this community was, people wanted a library,” Porsch said. “That’s the reason why we feel so strongly about celebrating it. If you look at how large the library has grown in the last 25 years, it’s truly amazing.” Since 1989, the Huntley Area Public Library has gone from serving 3,000 residents to 39,000 residents. The library’s original building, a former house at Algonquin Road and Church Street, served residents from 1992 to 1999, when population growth forced a move to Ruth Road.

Under new owners, the store, located at 10729 Dundee Road, had its liquor license for only 18 days at the time of the sale. The Huntley Liquor Commission recently issued the store a $400 fine and suspended
its license for five consecutive days after the owners pleaded guilty. The punishment is typical for first-time offenders in Huntley. Under old ownership, Huntley Food and Liquor in 2008 was fined $3,200 and had its liquor license suspended for 20 days after being charged with four counts of selling underage alcohol. Huntley police
notified the villageâ€™s liquor license holders of a compliance check 60 days before the Dec. 17 undercover operation. Huntley Food and Liquor was the only business caught selling to the underage agent. The clerk, Raj Patel, of Hoffman Estates, also was charged Dec. 17 with selling alcohol to a minor.

The intimate and interactive show features an ensemble of champion musicians on traditional Irish instruments, such as uilleann pipes, fiddles, button accordions and bodhrans. Gerry Nolan, who plays guitar for the band, said the group aims to make the audience members feel as if they were at a house party, even bringing people on stage at times or having performers mingle in the crowd. The permanent show in Dublin even features a couch and recliners to create a living room feel. â€œWe try to educate and entertain,â€? Quinn said. â€œWell, actually entertain and educate.â€? The show has exploded in popularity, especially in

The band has even played with The Wanted, performing the hit song â€œGlad You Cameâ€? on Irelandâ€™s most popular late-night show. Fusing the principles and framework of traditional music with modern
music is one of the bandâ€™s features, Nolan said. Local travel agent Diane Rowe was the key to America for Irish House Party, bringing them to Crystal Lake in 2012. Rowe said she fell in love with the band when serving as a travel guide for a trip to Dublin and offered them a place to stay if they came. The next year when she went back to Dublin the band asked if the offer stood, and Crystal Lake soon became the unofficial home to Irish House Party. In its third year back, the bandâ€™s tour has grown to include stops in Chicago, Milwaukee and nearby St.
Charles, among others. The partnership has become so successful Rowe is now listed as the bandâ€™s official booking agent for all U.S. shows and still houses the band along with her friend, Jill Fritz. â€œTheyâ€™ve truly become a family to me and they have built a nice fan base here in Crystal Lake, too,â€? Rowe said, adding the band recorded two songs in Crystal Lake for the next album. â€œThe show is just so much fun and funny. You know the Irish have a great sense of humor.â€? The band makes sure to have some fun while in the country as well. Quinn, who plays the Irish flute, said they go to Prairie Ridge High School each year to put on a workshop about Irish music and instruments for the students. The group also takes time to enjoy the local cuisine. â€œWe eat a lot of deep-dish pizza when weâ€™re here,â€? he said. â€œItâ€™s our favorite.â€? 0123 5%16 %4' 789:9 0%1
â€œThe interest is always there,â€? Crystal Lake Park Districtâ€™s Recreation Supervisor Joe Davison said. â€œThatâ€™s what makes this so successful. If the ice is playable, we always have people wanting to participate. Itâ€™s unique, and I havenâ€™t heard of another open like this in the Midwest.â€? It certainly caught the attention of foursome Steve Massie, Jeff Frost, Dave Sherman and Todd McWilliams. Frost, a Carpentersville resident, saw the information online and thought it should be added to their groupâ€™s bucket list. â€œWe were at the Chicago Bears versus Dallas Cowboys game when we had that terrible ice storm,â€? Frost said. â€œI saw this and I told the boys that this was our next mission.â€? Sherman admitted he had some second thoughts when he emerged from the groupâ€™s van only to be hit with the cold chill of the early morning. â€œI should have stayed in bed,â€? said Sherman. The four hit the links, or rather rinks, with ample layers of insulation, a small charcoal grill and a hefty cooler. â€œI just hope Iâ€™m able to swing in all of these layers,â€? said Massie, stiffly mov-

:fek`el\ifdgX^\9( The new building at 11000 Ruth Road ushered in a new era for the library. It has served a larger population and housed technological materials and services never before available to residents. In 2013, the Ruth Road building saw 316,069 visitors, nearly a 258 percent increase from the 88,387 people who visited the library in 2000. The many visitors who have supported the library in the past 25 years will see a common â€œ25â€? theme in 2014. The library will announce specialized events for the anniversary each month in its newsletter, website and Facebook and Twitter accounts.

ing his arms while talking against the density of his snowsuit. Not far behind the early birds were foursome Mike Roller, Anthony Reeves, Mike Czarnik and Steve Hippler. Czarnik is a four-year veteran to the classic, and with a grill cooking venison steaks and eggs and all the needed fixings for mimosas, he was a man who definitely looked like he knew what he was doing. â€œThe strategy changes every year depending on the course,â€? said Czarnik, a Cary resident. â€œThis dusting of snow we have here changes the game a bit, and we should be able to get some nice chip shots. We should do well ... might even be able to catch some fish.â€? The group estimated it would take them about two and a half hours to complete the course and said they had no intention of rushing. â€œWe have to cook, drink and golf,â€? said Roller. â€œItâ€™s just great. You donâ€™t find these types of activities anywhere else, and Crystal Lake has so many natural resources, itâ€™s nice that they donâ€™t pigeon-hole themselves with strictly spring and summer events.â€? All participants were awarded a hot bowl of chili, golf gear and bragging rights. Separate raffles were held to win golf accessories such as golf bags, clubs apparel and gift cards.

“The Obama Administration is absolutely committed to its radical abortion agenda -- so committed that it’s taking on the Little Sisters of the Poor, Catholic nuns who serve America’s most impoverished citizens, trying to force them to participate in the abortion-pill mandate that is in Obamacare.” – Jay Sekulow - ACLJ

Abortionists’ in the News In April 2013, abortionist Kermit Gosnell was convicted on three counts of murder in the deaths of three newborn babies. Gosnell routinely delivered live babies and then ended their lives by severing their spinal cords with scissors. The Grand Jury Report estimates hundreds of babies met similar fates at Gosnell’s Philadelphia abortion center. In December 2013 Gosnell was also convicted of illegally distributing painkillers, including many later sold on the street by addicts and drug dealers. Gosnell is not alone. Go to liveaction.org for documentation of other abortionists’ inhumane and barbaric acts. Illuminada C.

Every Child Deserves a Chance to Change the World… “A young pregnant wife has been hospitalized for a simple attack of appendicitis. The doctors had to apply ice to her stomach and when the treatments ended the doctors suggested that she abort the child, they told her it was the best solution because the baby would be born with some disability, but the young brave wife decided not to abort, and the child was born. That woman was my Mother and I was the child.” - Andrea Bocelli Stephanie Skube Roxanne Slaby Larry & Darlene Slavin Francina Sleconich Louise Sligting William Sligting Geraldine Slinn Keith & Stacy Sloan Ed Slomski Mary Slupikowski David Smid Steven Smitendorf Bruce Smith Debby Smith Don Smith Gerald & Joann Smith Janet & John Smith Jim Smith Jim & Judy W.

Prolife Victories 2013 • Illinois Parental Notice law went into effect. Eighteen years after passage of the “Parental Notice of Abortion Law” the Illinois Supreme Court unanimously ruled to uphold the law. The law requires doctors of girls 17-years-old and younger to notify a parent or guardian 48 hours before an abortion. • A record 87 U.S. Abortion Clinics Closed in 2013. Reasons for closures include: - A ﬂood of new state laws that establish abortion standards. - Increased enforcement of existing laws. - Retirement of aging abortionists, most of which are not being replaced. • More abortion restrictions have been enacted in 2011-2013 than in the entire previous decade. Laws included: - Bans on abortions performed after 20 weeks of pregnancy. - Laws imposing tougher restrictions on clinics and physicians. - Parental involvement in minors’ abortions. – Life News Kathy Snell Heather Snyder Kirk Sohm Sharon Sohm Corey Solis Theresa Solis Sarah, Joseph, Spencer, & Maxwell Sonnemann Betty Sorensen Pamela Sorenson Vince & Penny Sossong & Family George & Joanne Sotiroff Heather & Rob Soukup Steve Sows Donna Spark Mile Spear Virginia Spengel The Speziale Family Gerry & Marilyn Spiewak Christopher Spinelle William Spinelle Reba Spreitzer Linda & Loren Sprenkle Spring Grove Bible Fellowship Judith Springer Bill & Dolores Spung Diane Squiers Trevor Squiers Vaughn Squiers Rochelle Squire Mike & Dawn St. Clair & Family David & Dorothy Stack Walther C.

VIEWS Tom Musick
Alshon Jeffery had a breakout 2013 season for the Bears, as he:
Alshon Jeffery kept his plans quiet from his basketball coach. For more than a year, football players at Calhoun County High School had tried to pressure the basketball star. Come on, they told him. Come play with us. “They kept badgering him and badgering him about playing football,” said Zam Fredrick Sr., the longtime basketball coach of the school in central South Carolina. “And he didn’t tell me right away that he was going to play football.” Jeffery had not played football as a freshman, and he did not try out as a sophomore. But, a few games into his sophomore season, he agreed to join the team. When Fredrick saw his point guard catching footballs at practice, the secret was out. Nervous thoughts filled Fredrick’s mind. “With his size, he’s just an easy target,” Fredrick remembered thinking at the time. “He’s a real skinny kid, skinny as a rail. He didn’t do a lot of weightlifting then. “I was real concerned about his knees and all that. I didn’t want my No. 1 guy damaged and not being able to do anything [during basketball season]. And I’ve had that happen to me, so I was real skeptical about that.” But Fredrick also knew that Jeffery was a gifted athlete and a determined leader. Maybe Jeffery didn’t talk a lot off the court, but his coaches trusted him and his teammates loved him, and his traits could translate to football as well as anything. The more football Fredrick watched, the less he worried. “After watching him play a few times, I thought, ‘You know
• twice broke the Bears' single-game receiving yardage record (218 yards in Week 5; 249 yards in Week 13) • caught 89 passes for 1,421 yards (No. 2 in the NFL) • was voted Most Improved Player of the Year by the Professional Football Writers of America • was named to his first Pro Bowl what?’ ” Fredrick said. “ ‘Alshon, he’ll take care of himself.’ ” All the way to the NFL. Next week, the Bears’ 23-year-old wide receiver will travel to Hawaii to play in his first Pro Bowl. Jeffery is slated to be on the grounds of Lanikuhonua – “Where Heaven Meets the Earth” – on Tuesday and Wednesday for the league’s inaugural Pro Bowl draft show to determine sides. He’ll be at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu on Jan. 26 to play for Team Rice (as in Jerry) or Team Sanders (as in Deion). More than 4,500 miles away, in St. Matthews, S.C., Fredrick will be watching. It was only a few years ago when Fredrick was watching Jeffery on the hardwood. Jeffery started as a freshman for the Saints, a rarity for a powerhouse team with a sharp-minded coach who had starred with the South Carolina Gamecocks before being drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers in 1981. With Jeffery on the court, Calhoun County won 81 consecutive games en route to four consecutive state championships. The Saints’ 81-game winning streak was snapped on a day in which Jeffery was unavailable, out of town playing football in the Under Armour All-American Game. When Jeffery returned, the Saints went on another 22-game winning streak.

HAMPSHIRE 68, WOODSTOCK NORTH 56
Cork lifts Whips in 2nd half By JEFF ARNOLD
News sent to your phone
email@example.com HAMPSHIRE – Ryan Cork has distributed the basketball to his Hampshire teammates too often during his career to be bothered by a temporary scoring drought. So when the senior point guard didn’t account for any first-half points when Woodstock North’s defense locked down on him, he let others carry the offensive load. The two remaining quarters would be more than enough time for him to make up for it. Cork scored all of his team-high 17 points in the second half as the Whip-Purs’ balanced scoring attack was more than enough enough to take care of the visiting Thunder in a 68-56 Fox Valley Conference Fox Division victory Saturday. Hampshire (6-11 overall, 3-1 FVC Fox) rode the momentum of Cork’s second-half shooting, growing its lead to 21 before holding off a late Woodstock North fourth-

For Cork, it was just a matter of remaining patient while his teammates – led by Drew Doran’s 15 points and 14 by Matthew Bridges – helped Hampshire build what proved to be an insurmountable scoreboard advantage. “That was huge,” Cork said. “[Woodstock North’s] effort is huge, and you know they’re never going to go away. So it was huge to build that lead.” Doran and Bridges proved to be Cork’s biggest benefactors early on, helping Hampshire turn a two-point lead at the end of the first quarter into a 10-point halftime lead. One Cork got rolling, the WhipPurs’ lead only continued to grow.

Fiedorowicz turns focus to NFL draft Johnsburg native preps for Senior Bowl, Combine By JEFF ARNOLD email@example.com C.J. Fiedorowicz realizes he has no control over where he will be taken in this spring’s NFL draft. But with a 6-foot-7, 265-pound frame that is built to succeed as a pro-level tight end, the former Johnsburg and Iowa standout is prepared to make himself as attractive to NFL teams as possible. Fiedorowicz will spend this week at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., putting himself in front of NFL coaches, scouts and general “I’m not being cocky managers. Since his Iowa playing career about it, but I feel ended Jan. 1 in a 21-14 like I can compete loss to LSU in the Outback Bowl, Fiewith guys from the dorowicz has shifted nearly his full attenNFL. I feel like I’m tion to transitioning ready to go.” to the NFL. Fiedorowicz has C.J. Fiedorowicz trained privately in San Diego since Former Iowa tight end from Jan. 6, taking the Johnsburg first steps toward next month’s NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. What awaits him won’t come as a complete surprise. Fiedorowicz has watched the combine on TV for the past six or seven years, zeroing in primarily on tight ends, wide receivers and linemen and how they move. When his turn comes, Fiedorowicz said in a phone interview Friday, he plans to be ready. “You watch [the Combine] and you think, ‘Those are some big dudes,’ and it’s kind of weird to think that I will be at that exact Combine I’ve been watching,” Fiedorowicz said. “But I’ve just done a lot of work and put a lot of time into football to get to this point. I can’t wait for the opportunity.” Fiedorowicz has hired California-based agent Jack Bechta and completed his Combine paperwork last week. He left for Mobile on Saturday, anxious to showcase his abilities for NFL teams in the market for a versatile tight end. As of Friday, Fiedorowicz said his agent and coaches at Iowa have heard from the Falcons, Packers and Chiefs. Most draft analysts, including at CBSSports. com, project Fiedorowicz as a second- or thirdround pick. Much of his training in San Diego has focused on footwork and technique. Fiedorowicz has

What’s a movie line that you frequently quote with your friends?
he Cubs unveiled their first official team mascot in team history when they introduced Clark the Cub. Sports editor Jon Styf and columnist Tom Musick discuss:
“Left side! Strong side!” from “Remember the Titans”
It’s not something I really dreamed about or imagined, so when I first got the job, it was just all so exciting. But then you realize

you’ve got a job to do. You start to get integrated within the program. Now that I’m a couple months into it, it’s almost like that it’s just my job that I come into every day. People on my floor and people I know are like, ‘Wow – you’re a manager’ and I just say, ‘Well, it’s just another day at work’. But it’s still pretty cool. There isn’t a day that goes by when I don’t stop and think about how great of an opportunity I’ve got here.

3. What would you like to change about your sport? Give somebody a couple extra points if they hit a shot from behind halfcourt
4. What’s your favorite cereal? Chex. I’m a simple guy.
Musick: Fine, I’ll say it. I like
Which one of your competitions in the last year was particularly memorable? The sectional championship in baseball beating DundeeCrown at Huntley. You can’t beat winning a sectional.
Gaby DeJesus School: Crystal Lake South Year: Junior Sport: Basketball, track and ield
1. What’s a movie line that you frequently quote with
“You missed! How could you miss? He was three feet in front of you?” from “Mulan.” If you were a soap opera character, what would 2. your name be? (Your middle name and the street you grew up on). Aquino Plum
3. What would you like to change about your sport? I would take away the over-and-back rule in basketball.
4. What’s your favorite cereal? Lucky Charms
Which one of your competitions in the last year was particularly memorable? Last year when we played at Prairie Ridge, we came back to win at the very end. It was very intense. I remember the go-ahead play we had and I threw a pass to Sara Mickow against their press and she got the basket.
Trevor Symbal School: Huntley Year: Senior Sport: Wrestling, baseball
What’s a movie line that you frequently quote with your friends? “Milk was a bad choice!” from “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.” We quote that movie and “Step Brothers” a lot.

4. What’s your favorite cereal? Reese’s Puffs
Which one of your competitions in the last year was particularly memorable? Our meet against Cary-Grove this year was a good bounceback for us. They beat us bad last year and even though we lost, that helped us into a good rest of the season. It showed us we came out strong and set a standard for where we were at.
Canucks coach Tortorella, Flames have altercation VANCOUVER, British Columbia – An altercation broke out near the Calgary Flames’ dressing room during the first intermission of their game against the Canucks in Vancouver on Saturday night. CBC, which televised the game, showed Canucks coach
John Tortorella attempting to go into the Flames locker room at Rogers Arena, with Calgary enforcer Brian McGrattan pushing him away.

Ian May grew up loving Michigan State basketball. Now, the 2013 Cary-Grove graduate spends 40 to 0 hours a week inside the Spartans program, working as one of 12 student managers.

Clark. I think he’s kind of cool. And I think he’d be really awesome if I were a 7-year-old watching a Cubs game this summer at Wrigley Field. Styf: I’ve got kids. The oldest will be 5 this summer. We won’t be going to a Cubs game together. I’ve been there. I enjoyed it when I was in college and soon after. I just am not so sure that a Cubs game is the family atmosphere they are trying to push on us with this new mascot. Musick: But he’s furry. And he wears his hat backward. And he probably would give you a fist bump if you asked for one. He seems like fun, and baseball is fun. If you’re a kid, what’s not to love? Styf: Really setting me up here. It’s slow, it’s boring for kids and it’s pretty expensive. There also are a lot of inebriated people. That’s my childhood Chicago baseball memory (though it was at Comiskey, not Wrigley). We went as a family, I got a beer dumped all over me by the drunk person behind me. We never went back to a Chicago baseball game. Musick: Hey now, my dad apologized for that and you know it. I get your point, though. On a lot of weekends during the summer, Wrigley is more of a bar than a baseball stadium. It’s great for bachelor parties and bachelorette parties and whatever other kind of parties someone wants to have. But that’s not every day. On a Monday evening against a ho-hum team such as the Miami Marlins, it’s just another baseball game, and I’ve always loved baseball games since I was in first grade or so. Styf: You had to go there with the Marlins thing, didn’t you? Rubbing salt on those festering Cubs wounds. I hear you. I love baseball. I love baseball in person. I would rather wait until my kids are 8, 9 or 10 before taking them to a game. At that point, maybe they won’t be so into the smiley bear. Right now, I’d rather take them to Disney World or a Kane County Cougars game to see mascots. Minor league baseball is the best place for that. But I get it. The bear isn’t hurting me. I hope he never will. I just think people see it as the team trying to distract fans of all ages from the pitiful product on the field. Musick: Well, yeah, that’s a good point. Better to take a picture with Clark the Cub instead of being forced to watch Chris Rusin the Cub. But the team is going to be great soon – after all, Theo Epstein said so – and it’s a good idea to get the young ones on the bandwagon as soon as possible. However, it’s tough to argue if you want to focus on the Cougars for this summer. As for the Cubs, maybe wait til next year?

Former NFL star Sharper arrested in Los Angeles LOS ANGELES – Former NFL star defensive back Darren Sharper has been arrested on suspicion of rape, the Los Angeles Police Department said. Sharper, who played 14 sea-
sons in the NFL with Green Bay, Minnesota and New Orleans, was arrested and booked Friday and released on $200,000 bail just before midnight. He faces a Feb. 14 court appearance. LAPD said it is investigating Sharper in connection with two sexual assaults that occurred in October and earlier this month in the West Los Angeles area.
[Coach Tom Izzo] is the kind of a guy whose passion just rubs off on people. Being around him day in and day out will change you in good ways and will make me a stronger person. I guess being around him was different than I expected because you’re used to seeing him when he’s on TV and you get more of his media persona. But then, you see him in practice and that’s a little more intense of an environment. I see a side of [Izzo] that I hadn’t seen before. That’s when you realize how good of a coach he is when he’s in practice and conditioning his players into being such a good team.
I’ve seen [college basketball] more from within the program. When you see it on TV, it’s almost like it’s not human and that it’s so far away. Now that I’m within it, the players are more like people to me. You realize that they’re just kids who go to class and want to have fun. I have more of a personal approach to it now. You realize that a lot of it is about winning, but these kids are here to play basketball and have fun, and that’s not something you see on TV. It’s like you see almost these robots who are out there to get big dunks. Now, I can see how things happen. It’s almost like watching the bread being made and seeing the final loaf of bread instead of just eating it.
Sometimes, the games get really serious. I remember when we played Columbia, which is a mid-major team, and it was a pretty close game and so things would get pretty heated – even among the managers, when things didn’t go well. When we’re winning, it’s more enjoyable, but when you’re losing, it’s more of a roller coaster than it was before (as a fan). So you just see everything differently. You say ‘live and die’ (with the team) and that’s totally how it is. It’s one organization, one family, one team – even when you’re a lowly manager and when you’re at the bottom of the totem pole. We’re all going to win together and we’re all going to lose together. We’re all just here to make sure we can win every single game and that’s only something you get when you’re within the program. As a fan, when you lose, you go back home or to your dorm or you read about it online. But for us, we’re here, we see the players’ reactions the next day. It gives you a new perspective. • I’m Just Saying is a regular Sunday feature.

BOYS BASKETBALL: HUNTLEY 59, PRAIRIE RIDGE 47
Egekeze seals victory
Jamaicans qualify for Sochi
By JOE STEVENSON email@example.com HUNTLEY – Huntley big man Amanze Egekeze drew most of the attention of Prairie Ridge’s zone defense for 3½ quarters, and his teammates responded accordingly. The Red Raiders were redhot behind the 3-point line, hitting 8 of 12 in the first half and 11 for the game. Egekeze, a 6-foot-8 senior headed to NCAA Division I Belmont, then had his moment, leading a late flurry as Huntley defeated Prairie Ridge, 59-47, in their Fox Valley Conference Valley Division boys basketball game Saturday. “It was tough getting anything, I didn’t get a lot of touches in there,” Egekeze said. “Luckily we had guys knocking down shots in the first half. We have guys who can shoot and we had to hit them tonight to get that lead.” Huntley (10-4 overall, 3-0 FVC Valley) led, 47-41, midway through the fourth quarter
offensive rebounds. They just outscrapped us. They got loose balls and offensive rebounds. Spurts come and go, but you have to be even in loose balls and rebounds.” Egekeze finished with 16 points, seven rebounds and four blocked shots. Wicks was 6 for 9 from the field for his career-best in 3s and tying his season-high for points. “If we wouldn’t have made all those shots, it could have been a very different story,” Huntley coach Marty Manning said. “We knew their zone gives you open looks from the 3-point line and they’d be worried about Amanze inside. We needed to knock down open shots.” Huntley built a 32-22 lead at halftime, but the Wolves came out hot in the second half and briefly took a lead before Egekeze hit a jumper and freshman Jack Bessey nailed a 3 to give the Raiders the lead for good. “We let them slip away from us in the third quarter,” said Wolves forward Ryan Gilbert, who scored 12 points. “We let it slip away and they were getting the looks they wanted inside with Egekeze and Gorney.” Bradshaw led all players with 20 points and hit three 3s.
By TIM REYNOLDS The Associated Press The Jamaican bobsled team may be headed to another Olympics. The catch: It needs a lot of money, and it needs it fast. Olympic organizers said Saturday that Jamaica has qualified for the two-man competition at next month’s Sochi Games, though it remains unclear whether the fledgling squad will get a chance to race. Funding is a serious problem, and sled driver Winston Watts told The Associated Press on Saturday he’s trying to raise as much as $80,000 in the next couple of weeks to cover travel and equipment costs. “Right now,” Watts said, “we’re at zero.” They are certainly among the world’s most storied bobsled teams, and that has little
to do with results. Jamaica first competed in Olympic bobsledding in 1988 at the Calgary Games, a story that inspired the “Cool Runnings” film. For a nation lacking bobsled tradition, or snowy winters, Jamaica often has fared well on the international circuits. It has been 12 years since Jamaica has had a sled in the Olympics, with Watts finishing 28th at the Salt Lake City Games with Lascelles Brown – now a key part of Canada’s national team. Brown won a medal at the 2010 Vancouver Games, one where the Jamaicans were hoping to compete but again were thwarted by funding issues. Still, Watts, 46, – who called himself “retired” from sliding for almost a decade – has held on to hope of sliding again on the sport’s biggest stage. “We’re pretty good,” Watts

His focus then shifted to the two-man sled and by racing in a number of lower-tier events at tracks in Park City, Lake Placid and Calgary in recent months, Watts and brakeman Marvin Dixon piled up enough points to get into the Olympic mix. Sochi officials tweeted word Saturday that the Jamaicans were in, but the International Bobsleigh & Skeleton Federation – the sport’s governing body – is not expected to confirm before Sunday how many nations qualified for the Olympic fields.

when Egekeze helped the Raiders seize control. He blocked Wolves guard Michael Bradshaw’s shot on a drive to the basket, then, on the other end, made a drop step and pivoted into the lane for a 6-footer. On Prairie Ridge’s next possession, guard Blake Jacobs tossed a loose ball high as it was headed out of bounds and Egekeze swooped in to grab it, then whipped a no-look pass to Zach Gorney for a layup. Gorney scored inside on Huntley’s next two possessions for a 55-41 lead. Before that, 11 of Huntley’s 17 field goals had been 3s. Forward Riley Wicks, who led Huntley with five 3s and 17 points, said they were motivated after Prairie Ridge (9-8, 1-3) wiped out a 32-22 lead with the first 12 points of the second half. “We took it personally and wanted to get every loose ball,” Wicks said. Huntley, which won its fifth consecutive game, made 11 of 20 3s and outrebounded the Wolves, 31-15. “The shooting, I’ll take that,” Prairie Ridge coach Corky Card said. “It’s difficult to win games from the arc.

BOYS BOWLING: HONONEGAH REGIONAL
McHenry takes 2nd, moves on to sectional Woodstock co-op, Marengo qualify 1 individual apiece By KEVIN MEYER firstname.lastname@example.org SOUTH BELOIT – The McHenry boys bowling team came into Saturday’s Hononegah Regional at Viking Lanes with one goal for the postseason: advance to the state finals as a team. The Warriors moved a step in the right direction with a second-place finish to claim a spot in next weekend’s Boylan Sectional. The War-
riors finished with 6,553 pins, and regional champion Harlem had 6,666. Woodstock co-op’s Tyler Busch and Marengo’s Jake Barton also advanced as individuals. Each team bowled six games. The top four teams in total pins advanced, as well as the next 10 individuals not on one of those four teams. “There were a couple of good teams here, and I’m not sure they were expecting this from us,” McHenry coach Kyle Funkhouser said. “It feels good to come out here and pull off an upset and beat Hononegah and advance. Hopefully, we can carry this into next week.” Senior Paul Colomer led the way for the Warriors with 1,392 total pins to finish second overall. Jacob Nimtz of Harlem was the regional champi-

on with a 1,506 series. “It went pretty great,” Colomer said. “I shot well and it feels amazing to get the whole team through – couldn’t have done it with a better group of guys. This is just amazing.” McHenry had three of the top
five finishers at the regional, and all three were seniors. Steve Churchill finished third with a 1,353 series, and Kody Hudjera finished tied for fourth with a 1,337. Barton, a freshman, became the first individual to advance to sectionals in Marengo’s short boys bowling history. Barton had a 1,224 series, which was eighth best among those not on the four advancing teams. “It’s my first year bowling in anything competitively, so it feels pretty good,” Barton said. “My whole game has been improving; I’ve gone from averaging around 180 at the beginning of the season to around 200 now. It’s good to see progress.” Marengo finished 10th with 5,481 pins. Kyle Alt was second on the team with a 1,139 series.
Woodstock co-op’s Busch bowled a final game of 250, his highest of the day, to claim the 10th and final advancing spot with 1,201 pins. Busch’s success did have a downside, as his final game bumped teammate Zach Myers out of that final spot by a single pin. Woodstock was seventh as a team with a 5,651 total. “Tyler bowled a good series and got through. Unfortunately, Zach just missed out,” Woodstock coach Ed Zurawski said. “We did exceptional as a team today, just missing having two bowlers at sectionals by one pin.” The Warriors, Busch and Barton will compete Saturday at Park Lanes in Loves Park for a chance to advance to state.

But after doubling their lead, the Whip-Purs had to turn on the offense again in the final minutes after the Thunder (5-11, 0-2) whittled the deficit to nine points with 1:43 remaining. “With that big of a lead, it’s tough for young kids to be able to pass and cut and cut – we didn’t need to score. We just need to run time and get fouled,” Hampshire coach Bob Barnett said. “But with a young team, they’re going to make those mistakes. You live with it and you learn from it – I hope.” Woodstock North cut into the second-half lead with balanced scoring of its own. Drake Creighton led the charge with 17 points to go along with Leonel Ortiz (12 points) and Josh Jandron (11 points). But like Hampshire, the Thunder got caught trying to do too much, which kept them from being able to completely make up for earlier offensive struggles. “We don’t stick with our game plan and what works best for this team,” Woodstock North coach Steve Ryan said. “Then we shoot quick shots and don’t get enough touches and then we don’t play very good Kyle Grillot – email@example.com defense. “We’ve sort of had that same Hampshire boys basketball coach Bob Barnett instructs his players during the second quarter Saturday in Hampshire.

Jeffery has always made things look easy • MUSICK Continued from page C1
By MARK POTASH email@example.com SEATTLE – As NFL rivalries go, it doesn’t get much better than Jim Harbaugh vs. Pete Carroll. Think Mike Ditka vs. Forrest Gregg with a little more respect. And staying power. Harbaugh and his San Francisco 49ers and Carroll and his Seattle Seahawks, who will play for the NFC championship today at CenturyLink Field, look like they’re going to be around for a while. Both teams have drafted extremely well in recent years, but their ascension to elite status in the NFL is unmistakable – both teams hired coaches who get more out of good players, have a good handle on both sides of the ball and quickly got the quarterback right. Since Harbaugh arrived in 2011, the 49ers, who had not made the playoffs in eight consecutive seasons, have gone 13-3, 11-4-1 and 12-4 and reached the NFC Championship game three consecutive times. Since Carroll arrived in 2010, the Seahawks have made the playoffs three times, improved from 7-9 and 7-9 to 11-5 and 13-3 and are the favorites to win the Super Bowl. With 21st-century quarterbacks, both coaches have built old-school powerhouses in an era trending toward offense. The Seahawks were the top-ranked defense in the
SAN FRANCISCO AT SEATTLE, 5:30 P.M., FOX NFL this season. The 49ers were third. Like their coaches, they are aggressive teams that practice hard and play harder. They are a football purist’s delight. And it’s a rivalry in the truest sense of the word. The winner will take great joy not only in advancing to the Super Bowl but in denying the other the opportunity. ‘‘There’s no love lost. There’s no love found,’’ said Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, who played for Harbaugh at Stanford. ‘‘It’s going to be intense. It’s going to be physical. I don’t know if there are going to be handshakes after this one.’’ ‘‘I don’t know anybody in here that likes anybody on the Seahawks,’’ 49ers guard Alex Boone told USA Today Sports before the teams’ regular-season matchup in December. ‘‘If you find one, let me know.’’ The Harbaugh-Carroll rivalry is well documented. Before he had even coached a game at Stanford in 2007, Har-
By ADAM JAHNS firstname.lastname@example.org DENVER – Peyton Manning was passing out plenty of compliments this past week in the leadup to the AFC Championship game. His top receivers were New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady. ‘‘It’s safe to say he’ll go down as the greatest NFL coach of all time,’’ Manning said of Belichick. ‘‘There are many, many well-deserved accolades and adjectives to describe the way he’s played quarterback,’’ he added about Brady. But the NFL’s dream matchup Sunday in Denver is more than Manning vs. Belichick’s defense or Manning vs. Brady. This is Manning vs. time and Manning vs. destiny. He has had multiple neck surgeries, missed the entire 2011 season and turns 38 in March, and Sunday might be his last game, his last chance at a Super Bowl and his last opportunity to cement his legacy as one of the best quarterbacks ever. Manning reportedly will have his neck examined after the season because of his contract. Although he’s signed with the Broncos through 2016, if his neck is found to
NEW ENGLAND AT DENVER, 2 P.M., CBS be more at risk or damaged again, retirement becomes a real possibility. It’s that finality that looms over Sunday’s game. Manning has a chance to end a Hall of Fame career like his current boss, John Elway, did when he won the second of two Super Bowls for the Broncos in 1999. The narrative feels destined for a similar ending. ‘‘Just when you go through a significant injury and a major career change, you truly do go one year at a time, and you don’t look past what’s going on now because you are not sure what’s going to happen,’’ Manning said. ‘‘Tomorrow is not promised.’’ Standing in Manning’s way, as always, are Belichick and Brady, the stains on an otherwise-impeccable career. While Manning’s coaches
baugh irked Carroll by telling reporters that a source inside the USC program indicated Carroll would leave USC after the 2007 season. ‘‘If he’s going to make statements like that, he ought to get his information right,’’ Carroll said. Later that season, Harbaugh’s 1-4 Cardinal upset Carroll’s No. 2-ranked Trojans 24-23 as 41-point underdogs. Then there was the famous ‘‘What’s your deal?’’ game when Carroll clearly was miffed at Harbaugh for a 2-point conversion with a 4821 lead in the fourth quarter. Both coaches downplayed the personal aspect of the rivalry this week. ‘‘Animosity? No. Erroneous. Erroneous,’’ Harbaugh said. ‘‘It’s football. It’s competition. It’s winning.’’ ‘‘For whatever reasons, you guys have a field day with this,’’ Carroll told reporters. ‘‘We have not been friends over the years. We just know each other through the games. I have great respect for Jim. That’s it.’’ The best part is that the teams will settle it on the field. The Seahawks have beaten the 49ers, 42-13 and 29-3, at CenturyLink Field the last two seasons. But the 49ers have won eight straight games heading into this one. This will be one to watch, right down to the postgame handshake. Assuming there is one.
and teams have changed over a 16-year career, Belichick and Brady have been the one enduring roadblock. Manning has the numbers. This past season, he set single-season records for touchdown passes (55) and passing yards (5,477), while the Broncos scored an NFL-record 606 points. But Brady has three Super Bowl championships to Manning’s one. Manning is 4-10 against Brady (1-2 in the playoffs) and 6-11 against Belichick’s Patriots in his career (Manning has a .735 winning percentage against the rest of the league). Cracking a Belichick-run defense has been his Mount Everest. On Nov. 24, the visiting Broncos took a 24-point lead against the Patriots, only to squander it in an awful second half and lose, 34-31, in overtime. Beating the Patriots always is significant for Manning. This time means more. ‘‘It is very rewarding when you put [in] a lot of hard work and it pays off with the opportunity to play in a game like this,’’ Manning said. ‘‘You don’t take [it] for granted, especially when you’ve been through an injury, been through a major change, and you’re in the home stretch of your career.’’
“He was my best ball handler, and he was the guy that had all the savvy on the court,” Fredrick said. “He was one of the rare guys that could dominate a game without scoring points. On the stat sheet, he might have about 5 or 6 points, but he had his signature all over the game “With him, it was like having a coach on the floor. My job was very easy.” Jeffery always has had a way of making things look easy. “He could catch anything,” Fredrick said. “Throw it in the air and he’d snatch that up. “He’s always had those hands, man. And his basketball days taught him all about positioning and boxing out. It’s just like getting a rebound sometimes, how he uses his body to get inside position.” What if Jeffery had ignored the pressure to play football? What if Jeffery had chased his dreams in sneakers instead of cleats? “Let me tell you something,” Fredrick said. “As great as he is as a receiver, I think he could have played pro basketball if that’s what he wanted to do. “I still believe basket-

Nobody’s going to tell me different. “But football was the sport that offered to him the most opportunities in a very rapid fashion. It was more about football choosing him than him choosing football.” And when the Pro Bowl chose Jeffery to replace Lions receiver Calvin Johnson, Fredrick happily called his former player. Fredrick congratulated Jeffery,
whose legacy lives on in the Calhoun County gymnasium as an example of what one can achieve with talent plus determination. “It couldn’t happen to a better fellow,” Fredrick said. “I was so proud of him.”

EXTERIOR HOME EXPERTS
Julius Peppers had a few good games, but also had three games without a tackle. The defensive end’s $18.18 million salary could put his return with the Bears in doubt.
Where do we begin? The pass rush was anemic, the defensive tackles got hurt, which crippled the run defense, and the position coach got fired. It’s hard to find bright spots on the 2013 Bears’ D-line. Julius Peppers shined in a few games (Pittsburgh, Baltimore), but also had three games without recording a single tackle. Shea McClellin won Defensive Player of the Week after his three-sack performance in Green Bay, but he had only one other sack the rest of the year. Peppers and McClellin combined for 17 quarterback hits. For comparison purposes, Lions defensive tackles Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley had 19 – each. The reserves at D-end, David Bass and Cheta Ozougwu, showed flashes, while Cornelious Washington remains very much a developmental prospect. The best defensive end barely played on the edge, and that was Corey Wootton, who was selfless in playing three-technique, which would prevent him from piling up big stats in a contract year. He played through a hip injury and was the most consistent player on the line. Henry Melton’s stat line showed little, but the Bears stopped the run when he was in the lineup before tearing his ACL in Week 3. Nate Collins performed well replacing Melton, but then he tore his ACL two weeks later. Jeremiah Ratliff made a positive impact late in the season. Stephen Paea started off very effectively, but battled a toe injury most of the year. In Bears wins, the defensive line stood out with sacks or batted balls, but it gets its share of the blame for the worst ‘D’ in team history.
2014 CONTRACT SITUATIONS Anderson and Williams both came to the Bears on one-year contracts last offseason. Williams received praise from Trestman and Emery in the Jan. 2 news conference, and despite his injury history, could be back to help shore up the run defense until the Bears find a long-term answer at middle linebacker. He said that he’d like to remain in Chicago. Anderson’s return is likely more in doubt. He was a good veteran presence, but if the Bears move Shea McClellin to ‘Sam’ linebacker to compete with Greene, they may not be able to bring back Anderson, who was great in coverage and had some stops behind the line but was on the field for almost every play for the miserable run defense. Special-teams veteran Blake Costanzo will be a free agent. Briggs is entering the final year of his deal in 2014.
2014 CONTRACT SITUATION
2014 NEEDS The pass rush needs to improve. With McClellin’s position possibly changing, the Bears should look at signing a big-name free agent to cause problems off the edge. If paired with Peppers
You’d have to argue the wide receiver and tight end positions were the greatest strength of the 2013 Bears. Brandon Marshall is an elite receiver, minimally one of the top five in the NFL and 2013 was another Pro Bowl season for him with 100 catches, 1,295 yards and 12 touchdowns. What few saw coming was Alshon Jeffery emerging as one of the top big–play receivers in the NFL. Jeffery actually surpassed Marshall in yards with 1,421 on 89 catches for a 16.0 average with seven touchdowns. Jeffery’s performance earned him a spot in the Pro Bowl. The problem at wide receiver is the lack of depth where Earl Bennett’s num-
Through the first few weeks of the season, it was all rainbows and lollipops for the Bears’ linebackers. Lance Briggs looked as good as ever and newcomers D.J. Williams and James Anderson were making plays against the run and pass. Injuries struck, and everything fell apart for another Bears position that could see big changes in 2014. Linebackers coach Tim Tibesar was fired for its failures. Williams tore his pectoral muscle in the win against the Giants and Lance Briggs missed seven games after fracturing his shoulder against the Redskins. With Williams and Briggs out, the development of Jon Bostic and Khaseem Greene accelerated, and the run defense turned into the worst in the league. Through six weeks, the Bears were 12th in the league against the run, allowing 102.0 yards a game. They finished allowing 161.4 yards a contest. Bostic and Greene struggled with the run and to make tackles, something Williams was doing at a high level before getting hurt. Briggs was the defense’s best player, making plays behind the line, but he wasn’t the same in his two games back at the end of the year. As much as coach Marc Trestman and general manager Phil Emery wanted to talk about how good the ‘D’ was when Williams and Briggs were healthy, the team’s play without them is what will be remembered most.
Lance Briggs missed seven games after fracturing his shoulder Oct. 20 in a 45-41 loss to Washington and wasn’t the same when he returned in the last two games at the end of the season. Briggs has one year left on his contract.

NFL gives us a perfect Sunday
Melton, Wootton, Ratliff, Collins and Landon Cohen are all set for free agency, so there could be a big overhaul at this position. Plus, Peppers’ cap number ($18.18 million per Spotrac) puts his return in doubt. Wootton makes sense as a priority to re-sign. His numbers and recent hip surgery could keep the price low, and he proved his versatility this season. Phil Emery made it seem like he needs to see something out of Melton, last year’s franchised player who was arrested in December. “He has to fully dedicate his mind and his focus to football, which is extremely important,” Emery said Jan. 2. Both Emery and Marc Trestman made it clear, however, what an important player Melton is. Collins could be a cheap re-signing for depth, and he proved he’s worth it in limited action. How much does Ratliff, who will be 33 next season, have left in the tank? His presence was noticeable in wins over Cleveland and Dallas.

The three-technique position is important to the defense – we’re assuming Mel Tucker sticks with a 4-3, just has more hybrid fronts and blitzes at times – and that would support bringing Melton, Ratliff or Collins back. Tucker may want both interior linemen to be pass rushers, which could move Paea down the depth chart and move defensive tackles that can penetrate up the needs list. – Kevin Fishbain, firstname.lastname@example.org
bers were well down this year at 32 catches for 243 yards and four touchdowns. After Bennett, there is no one. Rookie Marquess Wilson caught just two balls all season as the Bears’ fourth option. Martellus Bennett arrived during the offseason via free agency and emerged as the Bears best tight end since Greg Olsen and possibly the best since Mike Ditka. Martellus Bennett caught 65 passes for 759 yards with five touchdowns and, unlike Olsen, he’s a good enough blocker to stay on the field. The biggest disappointment with Martellus Bennett had nagging injuries most of the season, which kept him from blocking to his ability.
The Bears also have zero depth at tight end. Dante Rosario arrived in season off the waiver wire and was the No. 2, managing just one catch for 13 yards.
GRADE The starters Marshall, Jeffery and Martellus Bennett were an A-. A few too many drops from all three and Bennett’s blocking add the minus to the grade. The depth however is a D -. Still, most teams in the league would kill to have Marshall, Jeffery and Bennett. So overall, call it a B+.
CONTRACT SITUATIONS Marshall has one year left on his deal, Jeffery two and Martellus Bennett three.
2014 NEEDS Is Bostic’s future on the outside? It sure seems that way, based on Emery’s comments, but that still leaves a gaping hole in the middle if Williams isn’t re-signed.
Look for the Bears to try and extend Marshall for a couple more years to create cap space and avoid even bigger cap hits if they have to re-sign him in the free agent market next year. Earl Bennett is signed for two more years, but the Bears are likely to restructure his deal or release him because of his cap hit measured against his production. Rosario is a free agent.
2014 NEEDS Unless the Bears believe Wilson and Joe Anderson are capable of quantum leaps forward during the offseason, they have a serious need for one more receiver who can play now and another young talent to develop.
BEARS INSIDER Hub Arkush
Bostic could be Briggs’ heir apparent on the weak side. As with the D-line, we’ll know more when we have an idea of what defensive coordinator Mel Tucker envisions for his scheme next season. All that we pretty much know about this position for 2014 is that Briggs will be starting ... somewhere. Outside of that, it’s clearly a need to find players who bring the physicality and athleticism Emery likes in his prospects, as well as players who understand run gaps and make sure tackles. The Bears have four linebackers on the roster for next year, three who are candidates to start, so it appears to be a better situation than some other positions on defense. But that doesn’t mean there are not question marks everywhere. – Kevin Fishbain, email@example.com
There is also a need for a No. 2 tight end who can both catch passes and block. Marc Trestman could do wonders with Forte, Marshall, Jeffery, Martellus and a solid No. 2 tight end.

How many times have you heard it said this week and how many folks have you heard say that it’s great that the best four teams in the league are playing for the AFC and NFC titles. Don’t doubt it. These are the four clubs we should all be paying to see play. What more could we ask for than Tom Brady against Peyton Manning? Brady and Manning are probably past their prime, but there’s still no more classic matchup in sports. That Brady owns an 8-3 advantage over Manning in the regular season, and 2-1 in the playoffs, says more about the teams they’ve played on than the two themselves. Again, that’s the point. Personally, I doubt one of these quarterbacks is going to be the reason their club wins or loses. Manning is going to put up his numbers whether the Broncos win or not, and Brady is going to lead his club and manage and supplement the Pats’ new earth-moving ground game like a magician. This one will come down to which of these two flawed defenses is more flawed, and whether or not the Broncos can match the Pats on the ground. With LeGarrette Blount coming in with 48 rushes for 355 and six touchdowns in just his past two games, and Stevan Ridley having put up 14 runs for 52 yards and two touchdowns on the ground Sunday, these are the two guys Denver has to stop, not Brady. With Broncos defenders Von Miller, Derek Wolfe, Kevin Vickerson and Chris Harris all injured and in street clothes, can they get it done? On New England, watch defenders Aqib Talib, Devin McCourty and Steve Gregory. I’d expect Talib singled up on Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas most of the day and either McCourty or Gregory
singled on tight end Julius Thomas. If the Pats’ defensive backs win those matchups, the Broncos will have a problem. Then there are the 49ers and the Seahawks. The Seattle Seahawks have been the best team in the NFL almost all season long. The 49ers are the hottest team in the league right now. The teams have split a pair of meetings this year and hate each other. Much like the AFC title game, many will try and make this about quarterbacks Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson, but that is not the story. Both will make a few big plays, both will probably make a couple of mistakes. Kaepernick is more likely to make them on the ground, Wilson through the air. Maybe the slightest of nods to Kaepernick because of experience, but most likely they cancel each other out. For the 49ers, overcoming the Seahawks’ overwhelming home field advantage and the nightmarish memories of their past two visits to Seattle will be key. They are the more talented squad and should prevail. But Seattle is 16–1 at CenturyLink Field over the past two seasons and 5-1 all time in the playoffs. There is no argument that the Seahawks have the best secondary in football. But with a 100 percent healthy and ready Anquan Boldin, Michael Crabtree and Vernon Davis, the 49ers may still have an edge. The winner of that matchup most likely wins the game. For Seattle, can wide receiver Percy Harvin go and can he be effective? The answer to that will most likely be no. That leaves running back Marshawn Lynch, and that’s it. Wide receivers Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin and tight end Zach Miller aren’t going to beat the 49ers. I can’t wait, and the best part is that no matter what happens, there’s not a bad Super Bowl pairing in the bunch.

Ivanovic ends Serena’s streak By JOHN PYE The Associated Press MELBOURNE, Australia – Serena Williams’ long winning streak came to an end in a stunning fourth-round defeat to Ana Ivanovic at the Australian Open on Saturday night (Sunday in Melbourne). Ivanovic hadn’t won a set in her four previous matches against Williams, who had been a favorite to win a sixth Australian Open crown for her 18th Grand Slam title. Williams later admitted she’d been bothered by a back problem in practice in recent days and considered pulling out of the tournament. The No. 14-seeded Ivanovic set up the 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 win by attacking the best serve in women’s tennis. She frequently stood well inside the baseline to receive, she took big swipes on her forehand and generally put Williams off her rhythm.
“It’s not easy playing such a champion ... but she is also just a human,” said Ivanovic, who beat Venus Williams in the final of the WTA event at Auckland, New Zealand this month. “I just went out there swinging at the ball.” Williams hadn’t lost a match since August, one of only four defeats in 2013, and came into the fourth round with 25 straight wins. It was her 70th match at Melbourne Park, a record in the Open era, and she’d already set the mark for most match wins ever at the Australian Open with her third-round victory. “It wasn’t the best,” Williams said after being told her coach had released news of her back problem. “Again, I don’t want to blame anything. I feel like Ana deserves all the credit,” Williams added. “I feel she played unbelievable today. I think she went for her shots. It’s not
like I gave her the match.” Williams has been almost perfect after winning the first set in Australian Open matches, losing only once in 52 previous matches after winning the opening set. That single previous defeat was against fellow American Sloane Stephens in the quarterfinals last year. Ivanovic got on top early in the second set with some powerful forehand winners and never really let Williams back into the contest. The 2008 French Open champion had 33 winners, including 20 on her forehand side. Williams hit 22 winners but made 31 unforced errors, with most coming uncharacteristically on her backhand side. “I made a tremendous amount of errors, shots ... I haven’t missed since the ’80s,” Williams said.

NORTHWESTERN 54, INDIANA 47
Defense carries Northwestern past Indiana By ANDY PROFFET The Associated Press BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Northwestern had scored in the 40s in each of its past two games, winning one and losing one. So the Wildcats were pleased to see their opponent Saturday be the one to struggle to score. Drew Crawford had 17 points and 11 rebounds and Tre Demps scored 13 of his 15 points in a late run as the Wildcats held off Indiana, 5447, on Saturday. The victory was Northwestern’s first Big Ten road win since Jan. 17, 2013, at Illinois. The Wildcats (9-10, 2-4 Big Ten) had lost their first two conference road games by 23 and 26 points, respectively. But with Indiana (12-6, 2-3) struggling to score, the Wildcats eked out their second road win overall under firstyear coach Chris Collins. Collins credited the Wildcats’ 49-43 win over Illinois on Jan. 12 for his team’s success Saturday against the Hoosiers. “We did much better against the pressure (than we did against Illinois),” Collins said.
Northwestern’s Kale Abrahamson grabs a rebound from Indiana’s Austin Etherington Saturday during the second half in Bloomington, Ind. Northwestern defeated Indiana, 54-47. “We’ve kind of found ourselves, our identity. It takes time to figure that out,” he said. “If we’re going to make something out of this year, we’ve got to make ourselves a scrappy, blue-collar team.” Kevin “Yogi” Ferrell, the
Hoosiers’ sophomore point guard who came into Saturday leading the Big Ten in scoring at 17.9 ppg, scored 9 points while shooting just 2 of 13 from the field. “It was a combination of things,” Ferrell said of In-
diana’s shooting woes. “I know Evan (Gordon) had a lot of open shots on kicks and drives, they just didn’t happen to fall. “They packed the paint. It’s kind of hard to drive to the rim and attack.”
Noah Vonleh led the Hoosiers with 17 points and 12 rebounds. The Hoosiers ended up shooting 25 percent from the field (15 of 60). Both teams struggled offensively from the start. The Hoosiers, whose 72.5 ppg in conference play was fourth in the Big Ten coming in, didn’t reach double digits in points until Vonleh hit two free throws with 2:59 to play in the first half. “There’s no question Northwestern earned it, but the complacency we played with today on offense ... we participated in it by settling, not moving the ball enough,” Indiana coach Tom Crean said. But after hitting just three of their first 25 shots, the Hoosiers hit 3 of 4 to close within 22-19 at the break. IU finished the first half 6 of 31 from the field. Northwestern led by nine points twice in the first half, but couldn’t pull further away because of its own shooting woes. Despite several open looks on missed defensive switches, the Wildcats couldn’t get shots to fall. Northwestern shot just 8 of 29 from the field in the first half, including 3 of 12
on 3-pointers. But the Wildcats found their touch in the second half, shooting 11 of 22 from the field. Despite their struggles, the Hoosiers battled back in the second half, taking a 36-35 lead on Evan Gordon’s 3-pointer with 7:35 to play. Hanner Mosquera-Perea had a monstrous block on Abrahamson on the other end, leading to Will Sheehey’s attempted layup for the Hoosiers. Sheehey was fouled by Demps and hit the floor hard. He spent a few minutes lying under the basket before being helped off the court. He would return later and finished with 2 points. “I’m going to be all right,” Sheehey said. “I just have bad ankles ... it’s going to be sore.” With Sheehey hurt, Collins was allowed to pick an Indiana player to shoot Sheehey’s free throws. He chose Mosquera-Perea, a 75-percent free throw shooter. Mosquera-Perea hit both to give the Hoosiers a 38-35 lead with 7:15 to play. Demps then hit a 3-pointer to tie the game, and scored on Northwestern’s next possession to put the Wildcats up 40-38.
Michigan holds on, beats Badgers The ASSOCIATED PRESS
Illinois’ Tracy Abrams looks to get rid of the ball next to Michigan State’s Travis Trice on Saturday in Champaign.
MICHIGAN STATE 78, ILLINOIS 62
Michigan St. pushes past Illinois By DAVID MERCER The Associated Press CHAMPAIGN – Gary Harris scored 23 points and Denzel Valentine pulled down 11 rebounds to lead No. 4 Michigan State past Illinois, 78-62, on Saturday night. The Spartans (17-1, 6-0 Big Ten) stayed on top of the Big Ten with their 10th straight win. With the victory, Michigan State is also off to the best start in team history. No Spartans team has ever won 17 of its first 18. After opening conference play 2-0, Illinois has now lost four in a row. Michigan State owned the boards early against the Illini (13-6, 2-4), outrebounding them 24-10 over the first 20 minutes. The Spartans used that edge to open up a 10-point lead by halftime and held the Illini at arm’s length the rest of the night. Valentine and Keith Appling each added 15 points for the Spartans. Tracy Abrams led Illinois with 15 points. The win moved Michigan State coach Tom Izzo past Illinois’ Lou Henson and into fourth on the list of career Big Ten wins with 215. Illinois closed to within six at 59-53 with 6:11 in the game on a pair of free throws by Abrams. But almost as quick as those
shots sparked a little hope for Illinois, Appling snuffed it out with a long 3-pointer from the top of the arc. Michigan was up 62-53 with 5:43 to play, and with the Illini shooting a tepid 37.7 percent and unable to drum up many second chances, Michigan was comfortably out front. The Spartans played without 6-10 center Adreian Payne, out for a third consecutive game with an ankle injury. But against an Illinois team with little inside presence, they didn’t seem to need him. Michigan State outrebounded Illinois, 38-25. Valentine was at times dominant, particularly in the first half. He had nine rebounds by halftime and held Rice to 12 points. Rice entered the game as the conference’s second-leading scorer, averaging 17.7 points a game. The Spartans also made the most of their shots, sinking 55.8 percent of them. Illini big men Nnanna Egwu and Maverick Morgan had a combined five rebounds and four points. Egwu hasn’t scored a point in his past two games in spite of starting both and playing 55 minutes. Illinois coach John Groce’s frustration has been growing with the losing streak. After Wednesday’s loss to Purdue he charged toward officials to complain about calls.
MADISON, Wis. – Step back, dribble between the legs and fire away. Nik Stauskas played it cool in front of a raucous road crowd late in the second half to hit a clutch shot that helped Michigan hold on for a rare win at Wisconsin. Stauskas scored 23 points, including his key 3 with less than a minute left, and the Wolverines fended off a late surge for the 77-70 victory Saturday over the third-ranked Badgers. Stauskas said his first thought was to go to the rim, but that defender Nigel Hayes was overplaying him. “He kind of slid forward a little bit and I was open for 3 and I just tried to be aggressive and shoot it,” Stauskas said. Purdue 65, Penn State 64: At West Lafayette, Ind., Terone Johnson had 14 points and five rebounds to lead Purdue to a 65-64 win over Penn State on Saturday night. Kendall Stephens and Basil Smotherman each scored 12 points for the Boilermakers (13-5, 3-2 Big Ten), who have
won three straight Big Ten games for the first time since February 2012.
Ohio 65, Northern Illinois 46:At DeKalb, Nick Kellogg scored 16 points, Maurice Ndour added 10 and Ohio cruised to a 65-46 victory Saturday night over Northern Illinois. Down 25-24 at the break, Ohio opened the second half with a 23-12 run to take a 4737 lead with 12:18 remaining. Northern Illinois then went nearly nine minutes without scoring, allowing the Bobcats to stretch their lead to 62-40 with 3:47 left. Kellogg was 6 of 8 from th
SIU Edwardsville 67, Murray State 60: At Edwardsville, Rozell Nunn scored 20 points and grabbed seven rebounds to lead SIU Edwardsville in a 6760 victory over Murray State on Saturday. Christian Salecich came off the bench to add 13 points and four assists for the Cougars (6-13, 3-3 Ohio Valley Conference). Donivine Stewart scored 11 points and had six assists. Murray State’s Payne Cameron made a layup in the final seconds of the first peri-
od to give the Racers a 37-32 advantage at the break.

No. 6 Villanova 88, Depaul 62: At Villanova, Pa., James
D.J. Balentine had 18 points to lead Evansville to a 53-48 victory over Loyola of Chicago Saturday. Blake Simmons had 11 points and Duane Gibson added 10 for Evansville (9-10, 2-4 Missouri Valley Conference).
Bell had 17 points and eight rebounds and Ryan Arcidiacono scored 14 points as Villanova won its fifth straight. The Wildcats (16-1, 5-0 Big East) made 19 of 26 shots (73 percent) in the second half and tied a season low with five turnovers.
Eastern Illinois 67, Austin Peay 64: At Charleston, Sherman Blanford tipped in a Luke Piotrowski miss with 16 seconds on the clock as Eastern Illinois defeated Austin Peay 67-64 in a see-saw contest Saturday that saw 18 lead changes and 11 ties. Reggie Smith led the Panthers (6-12, 3-4 Ohio Valley Conference) with 15 points. Piotrowski scored a season-high 12 and Blanford 11 with eight rebounds. Illinois St. 77, Drake 63: At Des Moines, Iowa, Daishon Knight scored 17 points and grabbed seven rebounds off the bench as Illinois State made a big first-half lead stand up for a 77-63 win over Drake Saturday night. The Redbirds raced to an 18-6 start in the first five min-
North Dakota State 65 Western Illinois 52: At Fargo, N.D., Marshall Bjorklund scored 15 points and Taylor Braun 14 as North Dakota State defeated Western Illinois 65-52 on Saturday. The game was tied at 30 at halftime and remained tight through the first 10 minutes of the second half in a game that had 14 lead changes and eight ties. Then Braun hit a pair of free throws to break a 44-44 tie. The free throws sent the Bison on their way to a 21-8 scoring advantage for the remainder of the game with Braun contributing six points and TrayVonn Wright five during that stretch. Wright finished with 12 points for the Bison (14-5, 3-1 Summit League).
Garoppolo’s TD pass helps East beat West By FRED GOODALL The Associated Press ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – In their bids to impress pro scouts evaluating the East-West Shrine game, small school quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo thrived while Heisman Trophy finalist Jordan Lynch struggled. Garoppolo replaced Lynch after his better known counterpart from Northern Illinois threw a couple of early interceptions and wound up stealing the show. Coastal Carolina’s Matt Hazel scored on a 1-yard reception
to Garoppolo, who completed nine of 14 passes for 100 yards and no interceptions to earn offensive MVP honors for the East in a 23-13 victory. Nevin Lawson returned a fourth-quarter fumble 5 yards for another TD to help seal the win before an announced crowd of 19,500 at Tropicana Field. “I wasn’t used to coming off the bench, so I had to get warmed up. But the coaches called some good plays to get me in a rhythm, and the offensive line did a great job as well,” Garoppolo said. “Out here it’s just about the competition, whether you’re at
a small school or a big school you still have to show you can get the job done,” the Eastern Illinois quarterback added. “I believe I’m one of the best players in the nation, and that’s the mindset I play with.” Arkansas’ Zach Hocker kicked three field goals for the East, including a 56-yarder that snapped a 13-13 tie early in the fourth quarter. Nevin, a cornerback from Utah State, scooped up a fumble forced by Western Kentucky’s Andrew Jackson to put the East up 23-13 with 9:38 to go. Lynch, who was not available for postgame interviews,
started for East and threw a pair of first-quarter interceptions while also failing to get his team into the end zone after West starter Keith Wenning of Ball State lost a fumble at his own 22 on the second play of the game. Hoping to capitalize on the quick turnover, Lynch overthrew potential scoring passes to Michigan’s Jeremy Gallon and Miami’s Allen Hurns before the East settled for a 31yard field goal. Two of his next three passes were intercepted by Arizona State’s Alden Darby and Arizona’s Shaquille Richardson.
Director of college scouting says Senior Bowl is critical first step • FIEDOROWICZ Continued from page C1 concentrated his efforts on the kind of drills he knows can impact his draft stock in Indianapolis. He has focused primarily on the start of his 40-yard dash and on the 20-yard shuttle, a drill that measures not only a player’s speed but his ability to change direction. His first opportunity will
come at the Senior Bowl after finishing his senior year at Iowa with 30 catches and a team-best six touchdown grabs. During his career with the Hawkeyes, Fiedorowicz – who likens his game to Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski – also proved to be a valuable blocker, rounding out a skill set that could make him a good fit on an NFL roster. Greg Gabriel, who spent nine years working as the
Bears’ director of college scouting, said the Senior Bowl is a critical first step. “Each year, kids who jump out [in Mobile] end up helping themselves,” Gabriel said. “It’s the first live look coaches have at the players and that helps. “[Fiedorowicz] just has to go out every day and do the best he can do.” Fiedorowicz doesn’t feel any pressure to over-perform heading into the week. Because
of the workload he has put in while looking forward to the NFL, Fiedorowicz said the rest of the process – like draft projections he refers to as “random stuff” – will take care of itself. “I’m just ready to go out there and do my thing,” Fiedorowicz said. “I have the size and ability that NFL scouts are looking for. I’m not being cocky about it, but I feel like I can compete with guys from the NFL. I feel like I’m ready to go.”

BULLS 103, 76ERS 78
Noah making case for All-Star berth So far, Ricketts family last in standings among Cubs owners By GORDON WITTENMYER email@example.com When the Ricketts family took ownership of the Cubs in the fall of 2009, they promised championships, stability and a long-term hope. While that hope appears to remain intact – it’s the club’s only selling point these days – there’s not much certainty about baseball performance or management stability four years later. In fact, as the Rickettses prepared this weekend to face their most restless, if not hostile, fan base in five years of Cubs Conventions, their track record includes some of the worst baseball of any ownership tenure in the history of the franchise. The promises are still there, in the physical forms of Javy Baez, Kris Bryant and Albert Almora roaming the ballrooms and lobbies of the Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers. But as those touted prospects head to the minors again for the start of what figures to be another lost season of North Side baseball, an unflattering view of the Ricketts ownership is starting to develop in the game, with some industry sources questioning the fitness of the family to operate a big-market franchise. The third-year rebuilding plan under baseball president Theo Epstein is starting to flow with minor-league prospects/saviors. But the Cubs remain strapped for the financial resources to rebuild more quickly and aggressively through such avenues as preprime international player acquisitions. (They remain a long shot for free agent Masahiro Tanaka despite focusing this winter’s resources on strengthening a bid.) How quickly baseball operations gets a promised
Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts address the fans Friday during the Cubs’ annual winter baseball convention in Chicago. cash boost is linked to factors ranging from the highest franchise debt load in Major League Baseball to Wrigley Field renovations that have been delayed for more than a year to promises of a local-TV rights increase next season. Despite suggestions that this third-year overhaul has taken a toll on the Cubs’ substantial brand, sports business experts so far say that’s not the case – but that the next two or three years could be critical. Chicago-based sports business consultant Marc Ganis said the lengthy process is at least partially because of ‘‘the fact that the team losing games on the field, unfortunately, has been part of its persona.’’ Still, the last four seasons have put the Ricketts family in an unenviable class of its own among Cubs owners. No other ownership group in Cubs history has failed to reach .500 in its first four years, and the .421 winning percentage is worst among all Cubs owners. Along the way, the Rickettses have run through four managers in five seasons, watched attendance decline each season (down 17 percent total) and maintained an average ticket price roughly 10 percent higher than it was the year before they took over
a then-contender. All of which will be forgotten very quickly if The Plan works. ‘‘Even if the Cubs take a short-term hit in the box office,’’ New York-based sports scholar Marc Edelman said, ‘‘if they’re able to build a team that can win the World Series in the next decade, they will more than offset any temporary loss in revenue.’’ Or damage to the Cubs brand and the Ricketts reputation. Edelman, an associate law professor specializing in sports-related fields at Zicklin School of Business, Baruch College, City University of New York, compared this stretch of Cubs history to the losing New York Yankees teams in the early ’90s that had Derek Jeter, Jorge Posada, Bernie Williams and Andy Pettitte developing into a core that would deliver six pennants and four championships in eight years. ‘‘There were similar concerns that the Yankees were tarnishing their brand equity based on performance and on-field record,’’ he said. ‘‘But if you look at the Yankees today, it is clear that the rebuilding strategy they took in the early 1990s ultimately led to a colossal increase in the franchise’s brand equity.’’
Coach Tom Thibodeau admittedly is biased. After the Bulls’ 103-78 victory Saturday over the 76ers, he was wondering out loud if there was another big man playing at a higher level than Joakim Noah. Quick answer: No. With 21 points, 16 rebounds and three assists, Noah is making a strong case for a second consecutive All-Star berth. It was his team-leading 16th
double-double, and he has grabbed 10 or more rebounds in 12 consecutive games, the longest streak of his career. Noah was averaging 13.9 points, 13.8 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 1.9 blocks in January. “[Noah is] doing just about everything, laundry, everything,’’ Thibodeau said. “You can’t play any better than he’s playing now, and in every aspect of the game. The defense has
been there all season, the rebounding off the charts, but the playmaking, the quick decisions, multiple efforts, it sets the tone for our team.’’ So much for the loss of Luol Deng. Noah was stung the most by Deng’s trade to the Cavaliers, but it also seemed to stir something inside. He’s playing at a high level, but he also has ramped up his fiery demeanor to another level.
Bulls trade Teague for Nets’ Shengelia
first-round pick (29th overall) in the 2012 draft, to the Nets for 6-9 small forward Tornike Shengelia. Teague likely will be headed to his new team by Tuesday, when NBA offices reopen. For Teague, it’s almost a relief to be starting over. His

Helping 126 Homeowners by “Giving Away” *$1,829 Furnaces for $829 with Off-Season Central Air... (This is great ﬁnancial news if your furnace is over 12 years old) Dear Neighbor: This is great news for your wallet if your furnace is over 12 years old. Because, yes, it’s absolutely true... you can actually replace your old (and probably very inefﬁcient) gas furnace and air conditioner as a package for $1,000 less than you would have to pay at any other time. Please allow me to explain... Every year, the months of January, February, and March can “destroy” my business. I end up losing a ton of money during these“business destroyer” months and it can take me the remaining nine months to make up for them. I’m looking for the same thing to happen this year. That is why...
My Problem Is An Excellent Opportunity For You
and Furnaces and have a full Here are two reasons why: factory warranty. When all of the air conditioners Keep Reading To Learn are sold and all the furnaces are “given” away, in the sizes, that’s How To Get A Furnace it. There are no more at this For Peanuts price.

Then, I Give me a call now at 847will show you the substantial 854-9909 and I will set an savings available now. And it will appointment for your noinclude all labor and installation obligation survey. Thank you for reading this materials. Nothing is left out. rather long letter. I hope you will What A Really Simple proﬁt because of it. Concept Warmly, By letting you win big now, I will win at the end of the year. I’m betting that if I make you an Ron Magrini offer that is “irrestible” (at least Owner it should be if your gas furnace or air conditioner is over 12 years old) and I barely mark it up above the price I paid, I will accomplish two things: 1. I can pay my professional staff to work instead of sending them home. 2. I will cover my rent, utilities, insurance and taxes in the “business destroyer”months. If I can accomplish these two objectives, I will minimize my losses and the rest of the year, I can be a winner.
I employ great people and I want to keep them working during these long hard months. That is why I’ve decided to give up trying to make a proﬁt during the “business destroyer” months. If I can only minimize my losses during January, February, and March, I will come out ahead of the other nine months. Here’s how this (admittedly daring) offer came about. I have analyzed my business and determined the air conditioners and gas furnaces in the most popular sizes used in our area. I am willing to take a huge risk and obligate to sell 126 brand new matched systems before the end of March. They are brand new 2013 and Why This Offer 2014 models and they are NOT Can’t Last the seconds or“blems”. They are factory-fresh Air Conditioners You must act before March 30th.
P.S. Six months from now, this will probably be the most appreciated opportunity ever extended to homeowners in our area. Every one of the 126 proud owners will have an almost unfair advantage over the utility company. *W.A.C. With approved credit. $1,829 is based on 80% efﬁcient 40K BTU gas furnace. Different size requirements will vary equipment cost and savings. Limited Quantity. Taxes extra. Warranties require equipment to be mai0ntained in accordance with the manufacturers recommendations. Some limitations may apply. Cannot be combined with any other offers.

“It’s an evolution to the business that this option is available to individual players.” Robert Markionni, executive director of the Chicago District Golf Association
A theme can inspire success At the start of the year, leaders in organizations around the world are conducting their obligatory “endeavorment” talks (“We must endeavor to do better this year”). Fortunately, you can engage in a more inspiring process to fire up new results. You can ignite your success through a four-step process:
Step 1: Look back to move forward. Last year is over, but have you gleaned all the lessons and absorbed all the wisdom from 2013? Rather than focusing on what you didn’t achieve or get done (which is not very inspiring or encouraging), ignite new creative energy and ask yourself and your team: “What were our accomplishments, what did we learn and how did we rise to the occasion?” “What were the risks we took and what were the results?” “What key activities made the biggest difference and what changes should we make in 2014?” “What new skills, technologies, disciplines and commitments will positively impact this year?”
Step 2: Get a red-hot theme rather than goals. Creating an inspiring theme will be a daunting stretch to accomplish but doing so will be well worth the effort. It will call you and your employees to renewed levels of commitment and a more intense, smoldering focus. A red-hot theme (or themes) will answer the question, “why is accomplishing this intention really important not only to me personally, but also to my family, company, community and, boldly, the world?”

Fore all seasons
Step 3: Extinguish ordinary thinking. New thoughts and actions will fire up new results. Decide what you can and will do to overcome your difficult circumstances. Dare to take “the road less traveled.” Boldly navigate around and through obstacles to accomplish new levels of success. Consider that it is easier to act yourself into a new way of thinking, rather than thinking yourself into a new way of acting. Keep your attention on what you want and why you want it. Successful people put more energy into realizing their dreams and less time on lame excuses and reasons for failed attempts at glory. Remember, energy flows where attention goes, so practice imagining what it will be like to realize your desired intentions. You can change your physiology and materialize your “end game” by mentally rehearsing the results.
Step 4: Light up your plan and let it glow. By sharing your 2014 theme with others, you will publicly demonstrate your values. Invite people to join you around the bonfire. Request assistance from family, friends, clients and committed partners in realizing your theme(s). Remember if you can accomplish everything by yourself, it is not a big enough theme. Taking the time and making the effort to engage in this process will ignite your achievements in 2014 and beyond.

Indoor golf simulators make year-round training possible in Illinois By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO email@example.com PRAIRIE GROVE – Just past a railway bridge at Pleasant Hill and Bay roads, Jim Buenzli tees up an iron and hits a golf ball 100 yards away. Outside, Buenzli’s shot wouldn’t have traveled far with nearly a foot of snow on the ground and the thermometer reading 0 degrees. But the elements were no match for Buenzli, who took his swing in a video simulator inside his year-round golf training business. The simulator measured the distance of his shot, the angle of his club head and showed the trajectory of his golf ball on a videogame-style fairway. With amenities like that and the expertise of his staff, Buenzli said he hopes the Golf Academy at Terra Cotta can become a place for golf enthusiants to perfect their game even when a polar vortex is causing subzero temperatures. “I think the people who really like golf don’t stop being addicts during the winter. They just haven’t had a place to go,” said Buenzli, who owns the academy. “Now ... they can practice during the winter and stay close to the game.” The Golf Academy at Terra Cotta officially opened its doors in early November. Inside, the business features two golf simulators and two
Golf Academy at Terra Cotta What: Year-round training facility that features indoor golf simulators and practice bays, outdoor driving and chipping areas, golf fitness and massage rooms and a pro shop Where: 5200 Pleasant Hill Road, Prairie Grove Information: 815-355-4225 or www. golfacademytc.com practice bays that can instantly record a golfer’s swing and provide data on a golfer’s footing, posture and grip. The academy rests on roughly 20 acres, and sports a outdoor driving green and concrete mats for driving and chipping. The business also plans to add a short game area this spring for players to work on chipping, pitching and hitting in sand traps. Buenzli, a McHenry native who has taught golf for the last 27 years, said he wanted the Golf Academy to be a “one-stop shop” for golfers of any experience interested in improving their game no matter the time of year. The academy features a golf fitness room where players can do golf workouts designed to improve balance, speed and power. A massage therapist is on staff to help

Players also can visit the academy’s pro shop to buy custom-fitted clubs or turn in their old clubs for repairs. Buenzli and two other trainers provide year-round lessons for individuals and groups, and programs for junior golfers. “A driving range is a place where you go to hit a bucket of balls,” Buenzli said. “This is trying to be an actual practice facility that you can come and get services for any of your needs when it comes to golf.” Similar year-round training
academies have been opening throughout the Midwest, said Robert Markionni, executive director of the Chicago District Golf Association. The businesses complement the traditional golf clubhouses that boomed in the early 2000s but have financially struggled since the economic recession, he said. “It’s an evolution to the business that this option is available to individual players,” Markionni said. “It allows them to work on their game year round.”

Maximize tax returns using allowable deductions It is the time of year when businesses close the books and prepare for the completion of 2013 tax returns. To minimize tax liability, business owners look to deduct as many expenses as are allowed by the Internal Revenue Service. Professional tax advisers, such as CPAs, know the nuances of the IRS Code and may be able to identify tax savings that might otherwise be missed. Here is a sample of allowable income tax deductions that may be considered: Business meals: The IRS limits the tax deduction for business meals to 50 percent of the outlay. However, there are several exceptions that are not subject to the 50 percent ceiling, thereby allowing a 100 percent deduction. Broadly, one exception includes on-site meals provided for the convenience of
Accounting Michelle DellaMaria the employer, such as short meals provided for a deadline or special situation. The tax code also allows a full deduction for costs of recreational or social activities that are mainly for the benefit of employees who are not highly compensated, fringe benefits such as coffee or tea, and expenses directly related to business meetings of employees, stockholders or directors. For example, lunch ordered in for a departmental meeting would be 100 percent deductible as would expenses incurred for a company picnic or holiday party. Travel: Ordinary and necessary (not lavish or extravagant) busi-
ness travel expenses are 100 percent deductible, but costs incurred for personal reasons are not. Personal and business components can be, if the primary purpose of the trip is business. However, travel costs for spouses or non-employees are considered personal and are not deductible. Some allowable travel deductions include airfare, taxis, lodging, dry cleaning and laundry. Documentation to support the deduction should include the business purpose and time spent on business activities. Support for this deduction is made based on the facts and circumstances of each situation. Auto expense: For business use of an automobile, the IRS allows a company to take a deduction either using the standard mileage rate or the actual-cost method. The stan-
dard IRS mileage rate in 2014 is 56 cents a mile (56.5 cents a mile in 2013), which includes a factor for depreciation, gas, insurance, repairs and maintenance. Alternatively, the actual costs for these items may be paid for by the company with the personal-use value of the vehicle added to the employee’s W-2 form as a taxable benefit. • Self employed health insurance for
S-Corp greater than 2 percent shareholder: Health insurance premiums paid by the company on behalf of the greater than 2 percent S-Corp shareholder are deducted on the company tax return but are also added to Box 1 of the shareholder’s W-2. The shareholder return will report the income and an equal deduction on the individual tax return. Because this is not considered wages, it is not subject to FICA or FUTA even though it is in-
8FACES & PLACES
cluded on the W-2. If the shareholder avoids the step of adding the cost to the W-2 and directly takes the deduction on the individual return, there is a risk the deduction will be disallowed. Furthermore, the company will miss the deduction on its return, which will result in the payment of a higher 1.5 percent state replacement tax in Illinois. To maximize the benefit for these tax saving ideas, companies should adjust the general ledger and maintain separate accounts for each of the pertinent expenditures. Additional documentation also may be required, such as mileage logs or other supporting details. • Michelle DellaMaria is a CPA and certified valuation analyst with Caufield & Flood Certified Public Accountants in Crystal Lake.
Shoppers worry about authenticity of emails By BREE FOWLER The Associated Press
Shay LLC, 30D N. Williams St., Crystal Lake, recently celebrated opening with a Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce ribbon-cutting ceremony. Pictured (from left) are Dr. Amanda Cwikla, Gary Reece, Laura Sinnaeve, owner Michele Walsh, owner Lynda Walsh, owner Lori Hills, Penny Hughes, Darlene Petersen and Mike Lenzini.
NEW YORK – An email sent to the roughly 70 million Target customers who may have been affected by a pre-Christmas data breach is causing panic among those who fear it could be an attempt to victimize them again. Target said the email, which offers free credit monitoring services to potential victims of the breach, is legitimate. But the company has identified a handful of scammers who are trying to take advantage of the public’s fear and confusion. Shawn Blakeman, 42, of Raleigh, N.C., received Target’s email Friday morning, but he didn’t click on the link it contained “just in case it was some kind of a website that I couldn’t get out of or had a hidden virus,” he said. Consumers have been on edge since news of the data breach broke last month. And they’ve been warned to be on alert for possible follow-up attacks that could come in the form of phishing emails, electronic messages designed to implant malicious software on their computers or draw them to websites that prompt them to enter personal information. So when Target’s email began circulating earlier this week, many recipients questioned its authenticity. The
email was especially suspicious to people who said they haven’t set foot in a Target store in years. Jim Reid, 60, of Minneapolis said he was a little nervous about clicking on the link in the email and he questioned whether it was a good idea to send Target even more personal information when they were unable to protect it in the first place. “There’s too much uncertainty,” Reid said. “They keep changing what they’re saying about how many people were affected, about what kinds of information were stolen. It’s obvious that they really don’t know.” According to Target, hackers stole data related to 40 million credit and debit card accounts and also pilfered personal information, including email addresses, phone numbers, home addresses and names of as many as 70 million customers. Target spokeswoman Molly Snyder said it’s those 70 million people that Target contacted by email. And while Target believes the theft of the roughly 40 million debit and credit card numbers only affected cards swiped between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15, the 70 million people whose personal information was stolen could have last shopped at a Target store months, or even years, ago.

Squirrel away savings for slow winter months – Cathy
Dear Cathy, I think that’s a great idea. Although, I’d probably call it something other than an emergency fund. How about a squirrel fund? Squirrels need to have nuts saved up for winter, and in your case you’d be setting money aside during the summer to get you through the slow winter months. You may think I’m playing games with the name, but really I’m not. This sort of saving isn’t for emergencies. It’s a budget issue, because you’re planning and setting aside cash leading up to the down time you know is coming. Keep your emergency fund of three to six months of expenses separate from this, and take a careful look at what he made this winter and how much that left you short each month. Remember, we’re not
DAVE SAYS Dave Ramsey talking about some random amount of money here. It’s an exact amount that you can budget for accordingly. Teachers can do the same thing if they’re not paid 12 months a year. It’s a simple matter of planning ahead for the down time, and setting aside enough during the other nine months to see you through!
Dear Dave, What do you think about the idea of putting your emergency fund into bonds?
Dear Ryan, I think that’s a really bad idea, and here’s why. Bond values and prices go down as long-term interest rates rise. Right now, long-term interest rates – a good example would be mortgage rates – are ticking up. They’ve moved up a quarter of a percent recently. So, as this happens, the value
of bonds goes down. If these interest rates spiked, you could lose half your emergency fund. Never, ever put your emergency fund into things where risk and volatility are factors. An emergency fund isn’t an investment. It’s there to help protect things that are investments and your life. Keep it in something safe and simple, like a money market account where there’s no penalty for early withdrawal. We’re not looking to make money with an emergency fund, Ryan. It’s insurance. Just let it sit there, safe and sound, until it’s needed.

Google builds a ‘Nest’ for smart homes By MICHAEL LIEDTKE The Associated Press
The Rev. William (foreground) purges yeast from the bottom of a fermentation tank as Belgian brewing engineer Hubert de Halleux moves hoses around at the Spencer Brewery. Brewed by the Trappistine monks of St. Joseph’s Abbey, Spencer Trappist Ale is the only certified Trappist beer brewed in the U.S.
Massachusetts monks brewing beer like European brothers By DAVE MARTIN The Associated Press SPENCER, Mass. – For more than a century, Catholic Cistercian monks known as Trappists have been brewing and selling what many beer lovers consider some of the best in the world. Eight monasteries – six in Belgium and one each in Holland and Austria – produce the only beer recognized by the International Trappist Association as authentic Trappist beer. And starting Thursday, the 63 brothers of St. Joseph’s Abbey – about an hour’s drive west of Boston – will join them, selling the first Trappist beer brewed outside Europe. Their ambitious venture was hardly met with enthusiasm by their exacting Trappist brothers in Europe. After all, for nearly 60 years the monks in Spencer, Mass., had been selling jams and jellies to help support their community. Now they were interested in the real family business: beer. The journey from jams to beer started almost five years ago when St. Joseph’s sent two monks on a fact-finding mission to the Belgian Beer Fest in Boston. Within hours, their European brothers were alarmed to learn of the inquiries. “The original skepticism was because we were outside of Europe... and Americans,” said the Rev. Isaac Keeley, the bald, jovial former potter who has been at St. Joseph’s for 35 years and now directs the brewing. “And the fear we would go too big too fast.” Keeley and another monk from St. Joseph’s packed up and moved to Belgium in December 2010 to see how their European brothers brew – and to convince them that they could properly produce an American Trappist beer. The European monks weren’t the only ones who needed convincing. Back at St. Joseph’s, a robust debate among the brothers was underway. Some were concerned about starting what would be
Spencer Brewery Director the Rev. Isaac Keeley walks down a set of steps after checking on the fermentation tanks at the brewery in Spencer, Mass. the most expensive enterprise ever undertaken by the abbey. Everyone agreed, however, the aging monastery buildings were getting increasingly expensive to maintain. In the end, more than 85 percent of the American brothers voted for the project. “We see it as a 50- to 100year project. [Just] as we’re standing on the shoulders of those who came before us and built these building and supported the way of life, hopefully future generations will be able to stand on our shoulders, what we are doing – and we see the brewery as part of that,” said the Rev. Damian Carr, head of St. Joseph’s Abbey. The European monks, warming to the idea of an American Trappist beer, began giving close counsel to their Massachusetts brothers. The European monasteries made three strong recommendations: To brew beer of Trappist quality they must build a state-of-the-art brewery, hire a skilled brewing engineer, and brew just one kind of beer for the first five years. The St. Joseph’s monks set to work and built a multi-milliondollar brewery that would be the envy of almost any microbrewery in the world. Securing their bank loan – an amount they won’t disclose – was made easier by the success of the monks’ previous business venture,
“Trappist Preserves.” The European brewers, wanting a beer that wouldn’t damage the Trappist brand, agreed to help the Americans develop a good recipe. After more than 20 trial batches, the monks in Massachusetts settled on the recipe for what would become Spencer Trappist Ale, a “refectory ale” of 6.5 percent alcohol. The cloudy, golden beer is all-American yet rooted in European tradition with sweet, yeasty notes familiar to fans of other Trappist ales. With beer in his suitcase, Keeley flew last month to Belgium, seeking his brother monks’ blessing. He first delivered a PowerPoint presentation on the new brewery, then poured glasses of Spencer Trappist Ale for his European counterparts. “They approved it unanimously,” he said, “and after the vote there was applause.” With the Europeans on board, a U.S. distribution deal was signed. Sales will only be in Massachusetts at first, but plans are to expand nationally and someday, internationally. On New Year’s Day, at their annual holiday party, the brewery team tapped a keg of the final product for the whole St. Joseph’s community – the first time many of the brothers tasted the beer that will soon be synonymous with their monastery.

makes a digital assistant called “Google Now” that strives to learn what its users like and where they tend to go so it can provide helpful information without prompting. McIntyre believes Nest’s products will teach Google Now to become more helpful so it can increasingly take over more of the mundane tasks in people’s lives. “They need to gather as much information as they can to understand the context in how we live our lives,” McIntyre said. Google also could plug its digital mapping software into Nest products so it could learn the layout of a home, said Brian Proffitt, a technology analyst who is also a management instructor at the University of Notre Dame. That knowledge could then be deployed to delegate such household chores as vacuuming to a robot that would be able to rely on the interior maps to navigate its way through an entire home without human help, Proffitt said. A Google division run by Android creator Andy Rubin is working on various ideas for robots, though the Mountain View, Calif., company hasn’t shared many details about its goals. Google’s expansion into robotics is also being bolstered by a spate of acquisitions that included the recent purchase of Boston Dynamics, a U.S. military contractor that has already built a variety of contraptions that can be programmed to run at rapid speeds, leap high into the air and climb rocky terrains. Even as it explores various technological frontiers, Google still makes most of its money from advertising tied to search requests. Acquiring and developing products with Internet connections and environmental sensors can only help Google get an even better grasp on people’s interests.

VERLO MATTRESS FACTORY OF SLEEPY HOLLOW 1700 W. Main Street, Sleepy Hollow • (847) 836-8800 verlo.com • (800) 224-VERLO
SAN FRANCISCO – When our Internet-connected gadgets and home appliances all learn to talk to each other, Google wants to be at the center of the conversation. This imagined future is still a few years away, but Google is already preparing with its $3.2 billion acquisition of high-tech thermostat and smoke-detector maker Nest Labs. The surprise deal announced earlier this week will provide Google Inc. with more tools to build a valuable hub for homes. It’s a world of network-tethered toasters and tea kettles, or a so-called “Internet of Things,” that is destined to reshape society, experts say, in the same way that smartphones have done in the seven years since Apple Inc. unveiled the iPhone. The research firm Gartner Inc. expects more than 26 billion objects to be connected to the Internet by 2020, a figure that doesn’t include personal computers, smartphones or tablets. That would be a nearly 30-fold increase from roughly 900 million Internet-connected things in 2009. Google established itself as an instrumental player in smartphones with the 2008 release of Android, a free operating system that runs on more mobile devices than any other piece of software. Now, the company is gearing up for the advent of the smart home with the help of Nest Labs, a 300-employee company started in Palo Alto, Calif. less than four years ago. Tony Fadell, Nest’s founder, is an Apple veteran who helped design the iPod and the iPhone. As influential as smartphones have become, their role in understanding people’s habits and preferences could be eclipsed once everything in the home has a com-
puter chip and is connected to the Internet. “Google bought Nest in order to learn about this world where even more information is going to be accessible by computers,” said Forrester Research analyst Frank Gillett. Nest Labs quickly won over gadget lovers with its 2011 release of an Internetconnected thermostat that learns to cool and heat homes to suit the needs of the inhabitants. Late last year, the company followed up with a smoke and carbon-monoxide detector equipped with voice technology and the ability to communicate with the company’s thermostat. Nest hasn’t said how many of its devices have been sold, though analysts believe they are in just a small fraction of homes. The products have only been available in the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom. Google hasn’t disclosed its specific plans for Nest, but analysts anticipate an entire line of Internet-connected home products will be coming to countries around the world. Some of those Nest devices could be melded with existing Google services in an effort to make people’s lives easier. Such a move also would provide Google with the means to gather more insight that could be used to sell the digital advertising that generates most of the company’s revenue. In a blog post about the Google acquisition, Nest Labs co-founder Matt Rogers promised that customers’ personal information will only be used for “providing and improving Nest’s products and services. We’ve always taken privacy seriously and this will not change.” But that pledge won’t preclude Google from incorporating its services with Nest’s products, said Gartner analyst Angela McIntyre. For instance, Google already

6 Reasons to Apply for a Job at a Small Business By Catherine Conlan Monster Contributing Writer There are lots of advantages to working at a small business -- if you have what it takes. You need to be ready for anything and willing to use a variety of skills, but working for a small business can help you in a lot of big ways. Consider these six powerful reasons to apply for a job at a small business.
You’ll Really Matter Small businesses offer employees an opportunity to be more than a cog in a massive organizational machine. With fewer people on board, everyone gets to do more and have a greater say in how things get done. “Have your voice heard. Create an impact. Learn more about more,” says Michelle Geib of Xperience Days. “These are just a few of the reasons why you should work for a small business. When it comes to qualitative impact and personal growth, the ability for employees to have their opinions heard and implemented can be more rewarding than a paycheck at times.”
You’ll Learn a Lot When you work with a small group of people, you get more face time with each of them -- including the big boss. “You get to learn from the top,” says Mayer Dahan of [ http://www.dahanproperties. com/ ]Dahan Properties. “Small businesses work closely together and you have a chance to learn valuable lessons directly from your boss.” Cari DeCandia, director of business development at the National Autism Network, agrees. “One of the main benefits is being able to work closely with the creator of the company. It takes a person with many skill sets to create a company that can carry employees, and there is a great opportunity to learn more than the specified job description.”
You’ll Gain Experience Fast Life at a small business is fast-moving. If you’re a hard worker and a quick learner, you’ll get new opportunities on a regular basis and gain valuable experience fast. “An entry-level position in a small business is pure gold for a recent college graduate, especially if he or she is not entirely sure

You’ll Learn to Be Efficient Young startups often find themselves in crisis mode, having to deal with tight deadlines, small budgets, and lots of competing demands on their time and resources. Getting experience in this sort of environment can pay off for the rest of your career. “Working in the small-business world trains employees to work with limited resources and timelines,” says consultant Doug Mitchell. “No matter where you go during your career, you’ll exude ‘get ’er done.’”

the company’s success, the payoff can be sizeable, says Chris Sonjeow of LoveBookOnline. “In most small businesses, each employee is directly or partially responsible for the bottom line, so when the company grows, it’s easier to reap the monetary rewards. At the corporate giants, you’re just another cog in the machine who can go overlooked.”

TODAY - Develop contracts, sign agreements and take care of unfinished business this year. The more time you put into enhancing your personal and professional security, the more you will encounter people who want to share ideas and future prospects. Good fortune is heading your way. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Live and learn. Letting someone from your past get away with something you should have anticipated will be hard to swallow. Protect your heart and your possessions. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Put your finances in order. A chance to make extra cash or receive a gift or reward will help
you make a positive change to your current direction. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Take hold of whatever situation you encounter. There is money to be made, deals to be signed and improvements to enact that will bolster your personal life. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- What you do will make a difference to your community, be it spiritual, moral or physical. An impulsive move may cost you, but the price will be worth your while. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Expand your friendships today. Mix the old with the new to achieve freedom and peace of mind. A
trip or reunion will lead to an interesting turn of events. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Keep everyone guessing. Your changing attitude and innovative mind will capture interest and result in the chance to try your hand at something new and exciting. Speak up and enjoy the attention. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Travel to destinations that offer something different. Romance is on the rise, and it could turn a dull day into an exciting encounter. You’ll also have the chance to establish a better relationship. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don’t take any-
thing or anyone for granted. Live up to what’s expected of you so that you can move ahead without feeling guilty. Aggressive action will be required to excel. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- You need to socialize, offer favors and take on tasks that will boost your reputation and help you gain respect. Love and romance are in the stars, and a promise should be made. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Ask questions and be prepared to protect your personal position and your future. Not everyone will be as accommodating as you. Prepare to counter whatever adversity you face. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Home,
family and friends should take top priority today. Do something unique or different that you can share with the ones you love. Changes at home should add to your comfort and entertainment. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- A chance to fulfill a dream may come at a cost. Not everyone will want you to go in the direction you choose. Weigh the pros and cons, but do what your heart craves. The others will understand eventually.

Ironing out wrinkles in scientific theory
hen my son was 8 or 10 years old, he said he might want to be a scientist when he grew up. “That’s great,” I said. “As luck would have it, I know a lot about science. Let’s try an experiment together.” I fetched two sheets of paper and handed him one. “Let’s drop them at the same time and see what happens,” I said. He counted to three, and we let them go. They fluttered to the floor and landed at about the same time. “So what did we learn?” I asked. “Well, they weigh about the same, I guess,” he said. “Excellent!” I said. “Now let’s try it again, but first…” I crumpled my sheet of paper into a ball. He counted to three again, and we let them go. This time, my wad of paper plopped onto the floor well ahead of his, which still fluttered down. “Now what did we learn?” I asked. “Um-m-m,” he said. He wasn’t sure. “Isn’t it obvious?” I said as I unfolded my wrinkled sheet of paper and showed it to him. “Wrinkles are heavy!” “Um-m-m,” he said again as he shifted his uncertainty from the experiment to my sanity. “No, really,” I said. “Look, who’s heavier, you or me?” “You are,” he said. “And who has more wrinkles?” “Yeah … but …” he said. “Isn’t science fun?” I asked. He grew up and became a banker. Not everybody is cut out to be a scientist, I guess. Anyway, speaking of weights and measures, the other day I stepped on the bathroom scale and was surprised to see the number it flashed up at me. I had hoped to see something smaller, a little farther from the atomic weight of plutonium. I gazed at my image in the mirror and saw the problem right away. When I got dressed in the morning, I had pulled my shirt directly from the clothes dryer. It
sported more wrinkles than a Florida dermatology clinic. I thought back to that science experiment that proved to my son how heavy wrinkles are. Those hefty creases in my shirt were weighing me down. It was a chance for me to put my scientific knowledge to a practical use. I scoured the house to find an iron – an implement I haven’t used in years. My wife and I abandoned ironing long ago. She switched to easy-care fabrics to cut down on the ironing chores. I just decided to go with I-don’t-care fabrics, like cotton. So while she turned her back on wrinkles, I made my peace with them. But when your bathroom scale threatens to call a support group to report abuse, you have to do something. I couldn’t do much about all those weighty wrinkles on my body, but banishing them from the shirt seemed like a good place to start. I found the ancient iron in the laundry room, fired it up and went in search of an ironing board. As I said, it’s been a long time. I found the board and spent a few minutes trying to figure out how to unfold it and keep it standing. With each attempt, it wobbled like a newborn fawn. I gave up trying to assemble it and laid the board across the top of the washer and dryer, which seemed to be standing just fine on their own. I ironed the front of the shirt, unplugged the iron and slipped the shirt back on. It even felt lighter. I didn’t iron the back of the shirt, because they say it’s not wise to lose weight too fast. Besides, I wouldn’t be able to see the back of the shirt when I looked in the mirror anyway. No point in wasting precious time on stuff you can’t see. I went back to the bathroom, but before I got up on the scale I glanced at my reflection in the mirror. I had done a great job of flattening the shirt, except for the strip of cloth that held the buttons. It looked like a meandering stream with staggered pebbles poking above the
surface. I didn’t want a little oversight like that to spoil my weight-loss experiment. I dashed back to the iron, which I figured would be still hot enough to finish the job without re-plugging it. It was cooling fast, so to save time I unbuttoned and leaned over the top of the washing machine to iron out the remaining creases while I wore the shirt. The “caution” section of the iron’s manual probably devotes a paragraph or so to that approach to pressing garments, but who saves manuals? Besides, even if I could find the manual, I had no idea where my reading glasses were. And after all, how can you expect a guy to find his glasses when he can’t see without his glasses? I would just have to wing it. Ironing between the bottom buttons went well, but as I got to the top buttons the game changed. For one thing, I had to turn my head to the side to keep from scalding my chin as I pressed between the first and second buttons at the top. It’s hard to iron a shirt when you’re glancing out the corner of your eye through heat waves that ripple the blurry air like a flashback scene in a B-movie. The manual probably has a sentence on that hurdle, too, but … well, you know. In the end the shirt was smooth – at least in the front – and I dashed to the bathroom and hopped up onto the scale, excited to see how much weight I had lost by shedding all those hefty wrinkles. I would call my son and tell him the news. But to my surprise, the number on the scale remained unchanged. My science gene kicked in as I analyzed the anomaly. It turns out a dab of aloe burn-relief salve must be a lot heavier than it looks.

Pork burgers a classic By BONNIE S. BENWICK The Washington Post This recipe is from a 1994 memoir with recipes by the late Pierre Franey, who was born in Burgundy, France, 93 years ago this month. The very pale tomatoes are upon us, so we added tomato paste to compensate. You’ll need a nonreactive pan – such as enameled cast-iron, stainless-steel or nonstick – because of the acidic ingredients. Serve with quickly boiled, then smashed small potatoes and a salad.
Pork Burgers With Caraway 4 servings 1 1/2 pounds lean ground pork 1 teaspoon caraway seed 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, or more to taste 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or more to taste 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 1/2 medium onion 1 clove garlic 2 or 3 fresh sage leaves (may substitute 2 teaspoons dried sage) 4 plum or Roma tomatoes, as ripe as possible 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 1 1/2 tablespoons tomato paste 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar Combine the pork, caraway seed, cumin, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Blend with your fingers, being careful not to over-mix. Shape into 8 equal por-
tions, then shape each one into a 1/2-inch-thick patty. Heat the vegetable oil in a large, nonreactive skillet over medium heat (see headnote). Once the oil shimmers, add 5 of the patties and cook for 5 minutes on the first side, then turn them over and cook for 3 to 5 minutes on the second side. Transfer to a serving platter and cover loosely with foil to keep warm; as they are done, add the remaining patties and cook in the same way (no need to add oil to the skillet). While the burgers are cooking, finely chop the onion and mince the garlic and fresh sage. Cut the tomatoes into 1/4-inch pieces, reserving any juices. Drain the fat from the skillet. Add the olive oil and heat over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, stirring to coat. Cook for about 8 minutes, until they have softened, being careful not to brown the garlic. Stir in the tomato paste; cook for 1 minute. Add the vinegar and the tomatoes and their juices. Increase the heat to medium-high; cook, stirring, for about 3 minutes or until just bubbling. Taste, and add salt and/or pepper as needed. Pour sauce over each portion. Serve hot.

A Deeper Look At Garnets When one thinks of a garnet, the ﬁrst thing that comes to mind is a moderately dark red stone. When I think of a garnet, the ﬁrst thing that comes to mind is the 20 different species that occur within the garnet group and how taunting it is to identify each one of them correctly. Sometimes it boils down to which color presents itself more dominantly…is it orangish red or purplish red? Choose the incorrect color and the stone you thought it was is actually something completely different! Although it sounds like a task nobody would want to perform, I actually ﬁnd it fun and exciting. Garnets are a set of closely related minerals that form a group, within that speciﬁc group it can be broken down further into species hence the 20+ different garnet types. Because there’s so many garnet species it’s no wonder that they display the most variety of color of any mineral and they can even display the color change phenomenon! The use of garnets as a gem can be traced back to pre-historic times, but did you know that garnets are used for industrial purposes as well? The ﬁrst documented industrial use of a garnet was in 1878. Henry Hudson Barton produced a garnet coated sandpaper. Other industrial uses include, blast cleaning, water ﬁltration, and as an abrasive. Garnets are mined all over the world and the United States is no stranger to these colorful little gems. I bet you didn’t know that garnets are found in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, NewYork, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Utah and Virginia. Sorry folks, you can’t go garnet hunting in Illinois…but you can make a stop in to Steffan’s to see some of our gem quality garnets! I know there are a lot of loyal Gem Talk readers out there and I would really love to know what topics you would like to read about.

Woman prefers solitary life, but not husband Dear Abby: My husband, “George,” and I have been married for 13 years. Last night he dropped a bombshell. He told me while he loves me, he isn’t happy. He assured me he has no inclination to divorce me, but he pretty much laid the entire reason for his unhappiness at my feet. I don’t handle people well. I love George and our son, but I am most relaxed and comfortable when I’m by myself. I don’t neglect them. We do lots of stuff outside the house as a family. I have no close friends, and that’s how I prefer it. George’s complaint is I keep him from having friends. I have never tried to stop him. In fact, I have encouraged him to cultivate friendships and hang out with “the guys,” join groups, etc. He says he can’t do that and leave me at home. I wouldn’t mind his going out, but it’s nerveracking for me to go.
Abby, in 13 years I don’t think I have ever looked George or my son in the eye. It’s not something I’m comfortable with. My husband knew how I was when he married me. What can I do? – Oklahoma Loner Dear Loner: You need to find out why you are unable to look even the people closest to you in the eye. Eye contact is an important part of communication, and that you are unable to do it even with your child is of concern to me. There may be a psychological or neurological reason for it. While it’s fine for you to encourage your husband to socialize without you, it’s understandable he would feel uncomfortable doing it all the time. He isn’t a bachelor. Couples usually socialize together, and the women often initiate the arranging. If the root of your problem is a social anxiety disorder, there is help
available for it. Your doctor may be able to refer you to a specialist. For the sake of your marriage and your family, please don’t put it off. Dear Abby: I’m thinking about marrying my longtime boyfriend, but I’m hesitant because he wants me to change my last name. I want to keep my maiden name as my mother did. Most of the women I look up to in my life kept their names. My boyfriend says my wanting to keep my name tells him I am not committed. He says he’d be really hurt if I did it. I feel retaining my name is the ultimate in female empowerment. The tradition of women changing their last name goes back to when we were treated as property and not educated. What do you think I should do? – Female First, Wife
reasons: Many do it because they are established in their careers when they marry and feel a name change would be confusing. Others prefer to keep their personal and professional lives separate. This shouldn’t be a contest of wills, and you should not change your name to prove the depth of your commitment. Your boyfriend appears to be very traditional in his thinking. Stop for a moment and ask yourself what that would mean for your future if you marry him. Would he be willing to compromise if you offer to hyphenate your name with his? If he isn’t, and you feel giving up your name would make you feel like chattel, then perhaps you should look for a man whose beliefs are closer to your own.

New Year’s resolutions abandoned by alcoholics Alcoholics don’t make New Year’s resolutions. It’s true. They’ve learned the hard way that promises to themselves or promises to others are a one-way ticket to disappointment. They have discovered through trial and error (mostly error) that deciding to swear off alcohol is not a viable option. I don’t want to overuse the word hopeless, but that’s where this ends up. Alcoholics often have been hopeless for so long they don’t even recognize hopeful. Hopeless-
ness is a forgone conclusion and a way of life. The theme song for these folks is a shrug and “I don’t care,” which translates to “I’m hopeless that anything will ever be any different.” Many have tried numerous ingenious ways to limit or control the drinking. Some blame the gin but keep the wine. Some blame the scotch but keep the beer, and some alternate days. Some only drink on weekends, which end up starting Thursday and ending after Monday night football. Some think
it’s their God-given right to drink and blame its consequences on those around them. Some simply maintain it’s not that bad. Some supplement alcohol with prescription medication, and others switch to weed. The one thing they have in common is they know, even though they have yet to admit it even to themselves, they wouldn’t be doing these intricate maneuvers if they didn’t feel the need to control the drinking. A hallmark of alcoholic drinking is rationalization.
It is said alcoholics have “rationalizing minds” – that they can justify pretty much anything. This doesn’t mean they don’t feel badly about what they’re doing, simply that they can avoid feeling the shame associated with it. The more drinking, the more shame and the more shame, the more drinking. Identifying alcoholism has a lot to do with defining the term “loss of control.” Many people think that means continuous drinking, but this is not the case. “I don’t drink every day,”

the alcoholic says. “You mean you don’t get drunk every day,” the addictions counselor says. “Yes, so that means I can control it,” the alcoholic says. “Can you determine, once you start drinking, which days you’ll get drunk?” asks the addictions counselor. “No,” says the alcoholic. “I rest my case,” the addictions counselor says.

above The Land Conservancy of McHenry County continues mission during winter months “This is what we do. It needs to be done. A lot of these plants, unless someone does something about it, they’re going to disappear. It’s disappearing so fast, we desperately have to try and save it.” – Al Wilson 80, of Lake in the Hills, The Land Conservancy volunteer
By JAMI KUNZER • firstname.lastname@example.org
Know of an oak tree in danger in McHenry County? The Land Conservancy will come to the rescue. For more than a decade, volunteers have inconspicuously trudged into fields and farmland throughout the area. Their goal is to save the trees, wetlands, farmland and other areas in danger of development or destruction. In doing so, they say, they’re preserving the county’s scenic beauty for future generations. “It’s one thing to maybe preserve the land, but if you’re not taking care of it and making sure it’s healthy, you’ve only done half of the work that really needs to be done to make sure it’s going to be there forever,” said Lisa Haderlein, The Land Conservancy of McHenry County’s executive director and one of the nonprofit group’s five employees.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service Volunteers with the Land Conservancy of McHenry County will spend Martin Luther King Jr. Day rescuing oak trees. A Maguire Oak Rescue work day will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 5507 Irish Lane, Harvard. Oak-lovers gather to clear invasive brush around some ancient oaks. No experience necessary. Volunteers are asked to wear sturdy, warm footwear and dress in layers. There will be a fire and refreshments.

The Land Conservancy of McHenry County volunteer Randy Schietzelt (center) of Crystal Lake throws branches onto the fire as Pat Moser (left) of Cary and LCMC stewardship specialist Melissa Hormann (right) clear brush and trees Wednesday at the Crowley Sedge Meadow east of Harvard. BELOW: Moser clears branches from Crowley Sedge Meadow near Harvard. The group relies on about 100 volunteers, 40 of whom show up regularly, to do the restoration work necessary to preserve land. Along with rescuing oaks under stress from invasive brush, the group identifies high-quality natural areas and works to preserve farmland. They take advantage of days off from their jobs, such as Martin Luther King Jr. Day, to work the land. Volunteers are asked to gather from 10 am. to 1 p.m. Monday at 5507 Irish Lane in Harvard to clear brush from around oak trees. Much of the group’s efforts involve working with private landowners to both inform them of the value of their land and help them maintain it. Volunteers called “oak creepers” assess oak trees on private properties and offer the help needed to keep some of them, many more than 300 years old, alive, Haderlein said. “It can be really daunting for a landowner who loves their trees,”
Haderlein said. “If you don’t clear this stuff from underneath, the tree’s going to die, and you’re going to be left with weed bushes growing.” In all, the group has preserved 2,000 acres of land, completed 100
land preservations projects and received more than 3,000 hours of donated volunteer time. Most of the work has been done since 2002. Before that, efforts were completely done through volun-
teers, beginning in 1988 when a small group of residents formed a committee of the McHenry County Defenders. After hiring an executive director in 2002, the group officially became The Land Conservancy of McHenry County in 2003. Volunteer work days are hosted weekly and every other weekend. Both young and old come out, but weekday work days, like a recent one hosted in Harvard, typically draw those who have retired and want to help, said Melissa Hormann, the land stewardship specialist for the group. Hormann became involved about two years ago, having grown up with a love of the land. “As a kid, my parents were always taking me camping and taking me out into nature,” she said. She said the volunteers are inspiring, devoting their time to the cause, even on cold winter days. At 80 years old, Al Wilson of Lake in the Hills has been helping
The group will celebrate its efforts at 11 a.m. Jan. 26 as part of an Annual Celebration Brunch at D’Andrea Banquets, 4419 Route 14, Crystal Lake. Along with a brunch and recognition ceremony, the event includes a silent auction featuring local and natural items and businesses, a live auction and a presentation by photojournalist Mark Hirsch. Hirsch is known for his yearlong series of photos taken of “That Tree,” a lonely bur oak growing at the edge of a farm field near his home. Tickets cost $50 for nonmembers and $40 for members at www.conservemc.org or 815-337-9502. For information on the Land Conservancy of McHenry County, visit www.conservemc.org or call 815-337-9502. restore and preserve land for nearly 30 years. He and his wife, Barbara, both want to see Illinois remain true to its Prairie State nickname. “This is what we do. It needs to be done. A lot of these plants, unless someone does something about it, they’re going to disappear,” he said. “It’s disappearing so fast, we desperately have to try and save it.” He has worked on 18 acres at Routes 23 and 14 in Harvard in an effort to turn the area into a nature park that can be used by students of a nearby school. The winter actually draws more volunteers because people are busier in the summer, Hormann said. “Once you take out the invasive species, once you clear those out, it’s incredible to watch the wildflowers actually come back,” Hormann said. “There are more birds, and animals can move around, more deer. It’s really fun to see the transformation happen.” The group hopes to focus more
this year on farmland preservation, Haderlein said. More than 50 percent of the land in the county remains farmland, and much of that remains owned by families, she said. “We want to work with them to make sure that land is going to continue, and that there’ll be a next generation of farmers working the land in McHenry County like there has been since the 1830s.” To Haderlein and others involved with the efforts, their work is powerful. They take pride in it and the land they’re leaving behind for future generations. “I like to tell people everybody needs air to breathe. You need water to live and you need food, and all of those things come from a healthy landscape and a productive land,” she said. “You can put up subdivisions and maybe there’s short-term more income, but if you don’t balance it with enough open land, ... we’re out of luck.”

STUDENTS SHOW OFF Art Extravaganza gives District 155 artwork professional context By JAMI KUNZER • firstname.lastname@example.org
Cary-Grove junior Sydney Romero’s untitled ceramic work (clockwise from top left), Crystal Lake Central senior Skylat Buetow’s “Hushed Pride” oil painting and Prairie Ridge High School’s Jen Gulgren’s artwork are on display through Jan. 31 during the District 155 Art Extravaganza show at Lakeside Legacy Arts Park in Crystal Lake.
he artwork of high school students throughout Crystal Lake is right up there with the pros. The first District 155 Art Extravaganza at Lakeside Legacy Arts Park, 401 Country Club Road, has given students the chance to experience a professional art show. The show is ongoing through Jan. 31, when a closing reception takes place from 6 to 8 p.m. at Lakeside Legacy Arts Park. “I think it’s a great opportunity for the students to be able to show their work in a different context than just in the art room or in the classroom,” said Zachary Wisser, an art educator at Cary-Grove High School, one of four schools featured in the show. The other schools involved include Crystal Lake Central, Prairie Ridge and Crystal Lake South high schools. Each school chose about 25 pieces of artwork, including photography, graphic illustration, mixed media, painting, drawing, ceramics and other media. Students, such as Crystal Lake Central junior Eli Adams, jumped at the chance. The 16-year-old, who intends to pursue art after high school, has two pieces in the show, including a drawing and a painting. “It’s cool to see how good high school students can be,” she said. “It’s an honor to be in a show with a bunch of really good artists.”

School District 155 Art teacher Judd Shutt (left) and Crystal Lake Central junior Eli Adams hang artwork Monday at the Dole Mansion. The design departments are partnering with Lakeside Legacy Arts Park to have a collaborative high school art show at the Dole Mansion through Jan. 31.
Continued from page 12 Along with supplying the artwork, the students worked behind the scenes to create the show, prepping and hanging the work, said Kerry Parrish, an art educator at Crystal Lake Central High School. “It’s a great opportunity for them to get some artwork in their own community,” she said. “That gives them the sense that it’s this big professional show. We’re hoping it’s not just parents coming to the show. We’re hoping it becomes a community event. I think it’s an awesome way to showcase the talent we have in our
high schools.” At Central, educators tried to choose some of the strongest artwork from a variety of classes, Parrish said. The work of students of all ages was included. Same goes for Cary-Grove, where students were asked to take part, Wisser said. “We tried to put as much as we could into the show, and we tried to get as many kids involved as possible,” he said. “This is kind of an amazing show because it’s all four of the high schools,” he said. “Some of the students are going to be able to meet students from other schools and compare their work.”

Personal libraries are New Years Special! new, modern retreats Free Pickup & Delivery
Area Rug Cleaning

The Associated Press With the advent of tablets, cellphones and e-readers, could the book-lined home library go the way of the formal dining room? Not a chance, designers and retailers say. Digital and print books can co-exist, says House Beautiful’s editor in chief Newell Turner. “When there’s an endless river of [digital] content, the words, text and images we choose to print and bind into a physical book will make (it) even more special,” he said. And books, in their variety of shapes and sizes, can be art in their own right, he says. Certainly, many people display richly illustrated coffee table books. And at Hearst’s October 2013 Designer Visions show house in New York, Jamie Drake took the booksas-art notion literally: For his House Beautiful apartment, he turned large books spine sides in and stacked them geometrically in wall recesses to flank a fireplace as sculptural art. “Books are precious and beautiful, both their contents and materials. I was inspired to provoke thoughts, placing the bulk of the spines away from the viewer, thus highlighting the thousands of paper pages and creating a sense of desire to discover what lies within,” he says. For Elle Decor at the show house, Alessandra Branca created a warm, intimate library with just two bookshelves and a chrome easel for a flatscreen television. A large Candida Hofer photograph of Dublin’s Trinity College Library provided a trompe l’oeil effect, as if the library extended into the image. Branca imagined the space, which included walls covered in chocolatey faux bois (wood-grain appearance) sateen and a plump sofa blanketed in tartan, as a room where you could store favorite vintage books but also use a digital reader. “Nothing can replace the wonderful feel of sitting

Drake took the booksas-art notion literally: For his House Beautiful apartment, he turned large books spine sides in and stacked them geometrically in wall recesses to flank a fireplace as sculptural art. curled up with a book, or the happenstance of discovering a book on the shelf that you haven’t seen for a while, particularly books on art, architecture or design,” she said. “I think we’ll always love the physical aspect of a book in hand, but I’ve found I buy more and more of my new fiction online.” New York interior designer Elaine Griffin sees the role of home libraries changing. “We’ve come a long way from the English country home-inspired libraries of the ’80s – those spaces that looked like Carson (the butler on “Downton Abbey”) might come in at any moment to do a little dusting,” Griffin said. “Today’s home libraries are retreats, actually – places to retreat as an individual from
the more chaotic, groupthemed spaces of the rest of the house.” Home libraries are reading sanctuaries, she said, but clients often want a TV included. “The space is an alternative to the Great Room, used for solo viewing, for snuggling, for seclusion.” Many modern bookshelves are multi-purpose, with space to display objects as well as reading matter.

“Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” STARRING: Chris Pine, Kevin Costner and Keira Knightley PLOT: Jack Ryan, as a young covert CIA analyst, uncovers a Russian plot to crash the U.S. economy with a terrorist attack. RATED: PG-13 for sequences of violence and intense action and brief language TIME: 1 hour, 45 minutes VERDICT: Cooling Russo-American relations have yielded an opening for the return of Tom Clancy’s CIA analyst, just in time for the Sochi Olympics. In the Jack Ryan reboot, “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” Chris Pine takes over the lead. Ryan is a navigator of murky, reasonably realistic, international espionage worlds. He has neither James Bond’s preternatural suavity nor Jason Bourne’s visceral butt-kicking skills, but instead anxiously finds his way with patriotic cunning. “Shadow Recruit,” which was scripted without a Clancy book by Adam Cozad and David Koepp, tells a new backstory for Ryan. Inspired by Sept. 11, he joins the Marines and is heroically injured in Afghanistan. During his recovery, he meets his eventual fiancee (a doctor named Cathy played by Keira Knightley) and is lured to the CIA by a mysterious recruiter (Kevin Costner, unconvincingly trying to exude a Donald Sutherland-like gravitas). He’s covertly embedded at a Wall Street bank, where he uncovers a Russian plot to buy up U.S. Treasury bonds, which he suspects will be sold off in a coordinated act of terrorism and currency devaluation. Surely, if Ronald Reagan (whose endorsement of Clancy’s first novel, “The Hunt for Red October,” propelled his fame) was still around, he’d swoon over a spy thriller based on the harrowing threat of inflation. Ryan’s investigation leads him to the Russian oligarch Viktor Cherevin, played by Kenneth Branagh, who also directed the film. Branagh endows his film with (mostly) old-fashioned competency – something often lacking in today’s action films – but little to distinguish it from superior thrillers that have come before. “Shadow Recruit” is disappointingly formulaic, relying on the familiar set piece-driven story of an implausible heist and a time-bomb finale. Knightley is too strong a force for this girlfriend role. And when the global scheme is figured out in a minute with a bank of computer-searching analysts, one foresees the obsolescence of the action film: sprawling plots undone with a few keystrokes. “Jack Ryan:
LOCAL SHOWTIMES Shadow Recruit” is perhaps most significantly a test for Pine as a movie star. Early in the film, when Ryan is forced to defend his life in a hotel room battle, he ably depicts the shock and horror of a man encountering such a circumstance for the first time. But Pine also fails to make his Jack Ryan more than an afterthought to Baldwin’s know-it-all or Ford’s reluctant hero. –

“The Nut Job” STARRING: The voices of Will Arnett, Brendan Fraser and Liam Neeson PLOT: Surly, a curmudgeon, independent squirrel is banished from his park and forced to survive in the city. Lucky for him, he stumbles on the one thing that may be able to save his life, and the rest of park community, as they gear up for winter – Maury’s Nut Store. RATED: PG for mild action and rude humor TIME: 1 hour, 26 minutes VERDICT: “The Nut Job” certainly looks nice. Colors are vibrant, particularly the reddish autumn shades of trees in Liberty Park, in fictional Oakton City, where much of the action takes place. There’s a lovely moment where shimmering water reflects the leaves above. And the whole thing has a period feel – mid-20th century – which is appealing, though confusing, too, when you see characters break into what looks like very 21st-century dancing at one point. Like most animated films these days, “The Nut Job,” a joint Canadian-South Korean-U.S. production, trades on its celebrity voices, which here include Katherine Heigl, Brendan Fraser, Will Arnett, Maya Rudolph and, most recognizably, Liam Neeson, who sometimes sounds like he could be on a Shakespearean stage. Not that you could call this dialogue Shakespearean. Or even witty. This being a film about squirrels and their nuts, kids will enjoy the “nut” puns, and parents will groan. “Let’s not get too nutty about this,” one character says. “Sorry, I went a little nuts,” says another. The movie’s slogan: “No nuts, no glory.” Well, at least there’s an interesting digression on the existential nature of peanut brittle. Is it, someone asks, a nut or a candy? “Both,” comes the considered reply. The story, based on Lepeniotis’ short film, “Surly Squirrel,” is simple: The animals in Liberty Park, ruled by a gruff raccoon (Neeson, of course) ominously just named Raccoon, are facing a severe nut shortage just as winter is approaching. Surly the squirrel (Arnett), who thinks only

If he can snag that booty, he’ll be golden for the winter, though that won’t necessarily help out his furry friends in the park, led by the
feisty Andie (Heigl). Of course, there’s a big complication. A group of human lowlifes plotting a bank heist have their own connections to the nut stash, for reasons unrelated to nutrition. It’s all mildly entertaining – if slightly nuts. –
