Franks seeks advisory referendum Proposed bill would put property tax relief question on Nov. 4 ballot By KEVIN P. CRAVER kcraver@shawmedia.com

State Rep. Jack Franks, D-Marengo

State Rep. Jack Franks has tried without success to pass laws limiting governments’ ability to raise their property tax levies when property values fall. Now he’s trying to do something that hasn’t been successful-

ly done since 1978 – ask voters for their opinion with a statewide advisory referendum. House Bill 4273 seeks to put a nonbinding advisory question on the Nov. 4 ballot, asking voters whether they would support a state law forbidding governments from raising their levies if their overall assessed value

drops from the previous year, except if approved by voter referendum. The language mirrors what Franks has attempted to do legislatively in recent years. “I think we need to do this, because I’m not sure the local taxing bodies are hearing the complaints of their constituents.” Franks said. “The way it’s

What it means House Bill 4273, filed by state Rep.

HEALTH OFFICIALS URGE PRECAUTIONS

The ASSOCIATED PRESS PEORIA – The four Republican candidates for governor tried to woo downstate Illinois voters at the latest in a series of debates Thursday, pledging not to let the state be dominated by Chicago-area clout. The largely civil 90-minute debate in Peoria was a departure from a more combative forum last week in the Chicago suburbs, which Winnetka businessman Bruce Rauner described as a “beat up Brucey” session after his opponents lobbed criticism at him over past campaign donations and a changing position on the minimum wage. Along with debating the minimum wage and pension reform, the candidates – State Sens. Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard, State Treasurer Dan Rutherford and Rauner – differed little in weighing in on how to make school funding more equitable across the state, the expansion of gambling and the start of hydraulic fracturing. Dillard said that for too long Illinois been run by one party and one city. “We need to restore the political balance of Illinois,” he said. The Peoria event was one of a handful before the March 18 primary where all four were in attendance. Rauner, who has used his hefty war chest to saturate the airwaves with campaign ads,

GENERAL INFORMATION: 815-459-4040

The telltale carbon monoxide detector I’m sitting next to a carbon monoxide detector, and it is beeping every 30 seconds. I put fresh batteries in. And it still beeps. Our house is fairly loaded with smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. We have so many, I’ve lost count. One for every room and then some. We’re protected. The dang thing won’t shut up. The problem with these detectors is the batteries. They eventually are drained, or so the detector would have us believe, when it starts to beep at that high pitch intermittently. Try finding the offending detector. The sound comes from everywhere. One went out the other week, and I could have sworn it was one of the upstairs detectors. I would hear a beep, and I would move to a detector to see if it was the culprit. And I would stand there for 30 to 60 seconds to wait for the ear-splitting beep. Wrong room. Move to another room. Wrong room. My good wife suggested it was a basement detector. Posh. I could swear it was one of the half dozen or more upstairs. It sounded like it was in the next room. And the next room. And the next room. Finally, she locates the offender in the basement and reloads it with a new battery. It seems as if all we have to do is

8LOTTERY

VIEWS Dick Peterson turn the oven on and bake something just a tiny bit too long, and the smoke detectors start to go off, one room at a time, then into the basement, and I can’t even see smoke. It’s as if the smoke detectors are commenting on our cooking skills – you burned it. Again! And again! Thankfully, they have a reset button that shuts them up. Otherwise, we’d be forced to remove batteries until the colorless smoke has cleared, and you clearly don’t want to remove batteries on the off chance that you forget to replace them, or become so frustrated that you make a conscious decision not to replace them. Which would be dangerous, all cooking commentary aside. I know, I know. We’re supposed to change all the batteries in all the detectors in the fall when we turn back the clocks an hour. That’s what fire departments recommend to ensure that your detectors operate without interruption. But you know how it goes. The batteries are expensive enough, and the people who designed the detectors

did not make it easy to replace them. You have to open it just right, pry the battery out without breaking anything, then replace the battery ever so carefully so it makes contact with the terminals. I’m ashamed to admit it, but some years we neglect to change our batteries en masse, and we wait for the telltale beep and replace the batteries one at a time. It makes sense to replace them all at the same time, being that you cannot tell where the offending beep is coming from. The carbon monoxide detector in question was on a basement wall. After I stared and listened at three other detectors, I finally found the culprit. I was ready to put a fresh 9-volt battery in it, only to discover it takes three triple As. Of course. Batteries replaced, the beeping continued. I brought the carbon monoxide detector upstairs, where we have other carbon monoxide detectors, and all of them are silent. But this detector persists, beeping ever louder every 30 seconds. There’s no carbon monoxide upstairs, otherwise the other carbon monoxide detectors would be going off. To prove a point, I opened a window – we’re in the single digits temperature-wise – and put the detector

between the inside window and the outside window where it will get plenty of fresh air. And the dang thing is still beep, beep, beeping every 30 seconds. Certainly the great outdoors is free of carbon monoxide. This isn’t downtown Beijing. I’ve now waited overnight for the carbon monoxide detector to clear itself of any CO vapors. I’ve replaced the three fresh batteries one at a time, making sure the positive terminal is in the correct position, and it beeps, which is to be expected once it has just been powered up. But 30 seconds later, it beeps again. Arrgh. Which leads me to believe the detector has malfunctioned. I’m not about to air the house out. Remember, it is in the single digits, give or take several degrees either side of zero. I’m not about to call the fire department. Did that once before years ago, and it was a false alarm. To quote Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C.: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

Illinois unions prepare attack on GOP’s Rauner By SARA BURNETT The Associated Press CHICAGO – After months of owning the airwaves and raising millions more than his three GOP opponents in the campaign for Illinois governor, Bruce Rauner’s biggest test in the Republican primary may come not from his rivals but from the well-funded and politically powerful labor unions that traditionally side with Democrats. Officials from several unions said they are close to launching coordinated attacks against the wealthy

businessman, who has made standing up to “union bosses” a theme of his campaign and his prolific advertising. Unions have gotten involved in GOP primaries before, contributing to and endorsing candidates often as a way to hedge their bets. An aggressive campaign against a candidate is less typical, though it comes at a time when a governor could hit unions hard on issues such as the minimum wage and further pension reform. Union leaders say Rauner is markedly anti-labor compared to the other GOP

candidates, state Sens. Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard and Treasurer Dan Rutherford, and knocking him out in the March primary would eliminate an early and serious threat in a year in which much is at stake for working families. “As vigorously and vehemently as [Rauner] has come out against labor, we would be remiss if we just sat back,” said Jim Reed, director of government relations for the Illinois Education Association, a major teachers union. A simultaneous effort is being orchestrated by a long-

Four years at University of Illinois will top $100,000 By DAVID MERCER The Associated Press CHAMPAIGN – In-state students enrolling this fall at the University of Illinois’ flagship campus will have to pay more than $100,000 for four years on campus. University trustees on Thursday in Chicago approved increases in tuition, housing and other costs at all three campuses. Those increases will push the total expense into six figures for students starting classes next fall at the Urbana-Champaign campus. Current students at the university’s three campuses won’t be affected because Illinois law guarantees that public university students will pay the same rate of tuition their first four years in school. The 1.7 percent boost in tuition, university officials said, is in line with a policy started by trustees three years ago to hold increases to the rate of inflation. It also matches last year’s increase, which was the smallest since 1994. Increases

in recent years had been as high as 9 percent. This year’s increases, university officials say, are needed to keep up with the university’s own rising costs for labor and other expenses and to make up for relatively low levels of state funding. The state provides about 30 percent of the university’s $5.6 billion budget. Tuition makes up just over 19 percent. “The proposed increases allow us to hold down student costs, therefore enabling us to improve access and affordability,” Christophe Pierre, the university’s vice chancellor for academic affairs, told trustees before they voted. “At the same time, this modest increase will bring in additional revenues to the university and will allow us to continue investing in academic quality.” Trustees approved the increase without comment, but rising costs were clearly on their minds. During a discussion about six-year graduation rates at the University of Illinois-Chicago, trustee Ricardo Estrada

asked the campus’ vice chancellor for academic affairs, Lon Kaufman, about cutting down the time students spend in school to save them money. “(Given) the increasing cost of education at publics and privates, when do we start talking about four-year graduation rates instead of six-year graduation rates?” Estrada asked. Kaufman said summer classes could help cut down the time required for a degree, but summer financial aid is often hard to come by. Starting with the fall semester, the annual tuition for in-state students will be $12,036 in Urbana-Champaign, $10,584 in Chicago and $9,405 in Springfield. Annual housing costs would increase to $10,180 in Urbana-Champaign, $10,518 in Chicago and $10,650 in Springfield. The Urbana-Champaign campus is the university’s largest with 44,900 students – about 58 percent of the 78,100 total – and, in terms of tuition, its most expensive.

time Republican operative who said a Rauner nomination could be “a disaster” for the GOP in the general election. It’s expected to be funded by trade unions as well as other donors, under the name the Republican Fund for Progress and Jobs. While Brady, Dillard and Rutherford have lagged behind Rauner in fundraising, organized labor has the ability to compete with him financially – buying television advertising and paying for direct mail, telephone calls and other initiatives. In the 2010 election, private

and public-employee unions combined to spend nearly $29 million on Illinois elections, according to the National Institute on Money in State Politics. They also bring an army of members and a well-tuned system for deploying them. The attacks come with some risk, however, because they could solidify in the minds of conservative voters – those most likely to vote in a Republican primary – that Rauner is the candidate most likely to take on labor. GOP strategist Chris Robling noted Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s actions to weaken unions

made him a conservative hero. “It could be a badge of honor in a post-Scott Walker Republican primary,” Robling said. “If I was on Rauner’s team I’d be putting together ads to brag about it.” Rauner already has made it an issue as part of his campaign, trying to portray his three opponents as part of the Springfield establishment and noting all three have accepted campaign contributions from unions. He said the anticipated campaign against him is a sign that labor unions are scared of his policies.

8STATE BRIEFS New lawsuit filed in priest sex abuse case CHICAGO – A new lawsuit alleging sexual abuse of children in the 1960s and 1970s focuses on a now-defrocked priest mentioned in documents the Archdiocese of Chicago released this week. The lawsuit was filed Thursday in Cook County Court on behalf of three plaintiffs. It accuses the former priest, Norbert J. Maday, and another man of molesting children, sometimes in swimming pools. It names the men and the Archdiocese of Chicago as defendants. Maday was convicted in 1994 and imprisoned for molesting two boys. The documents released this week show Cardinal Francis George sought Maday’s early release in 2000. But months before Maday’s scheduled release, George informed parole officials in 2007 the diocese was severing all ties to Maday.

Ban on smoking in cars with kids introduced SPRINGFIELD – An Illinois lawmaker has introduced legislation that would make it illegal to smoke in a car while a child is present. Chicago Democratic Sen. Ira Silverstein is sponsoring the measure, saying it’s aimed at protecting children from secondhand smoke. “Second hand smoke has serious health effects, and Illi-

nois already restricts smoking indoors. This protects children from prolonged, enclosed exposure to smoke in an even less-ventilated setting,” Silverstein said in a statement. Anyone who violates the measure would face a $100 fine, but police wouldn’t be able to pull over drivers simply for a smoking violation. The measure would apply to any motorist smoking in a vehicle with a person under age 18.

Government panel urges end to phone data spying By STEPHEN BRAUN The Associated Press WASHINGTON – A government review panel warned Thursday that the National Security Agency’s daily collection of Americans’ phone records is illegal and recommended that President Barack Obama abandon the program and destroy the hundreds of millions of phone records it has already collected. The recommendations by the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board go further than Obama is willing to accept and increase pressure

on Congress to make changes. The panel’s 234-page report included dissents from two of the board’s five members – former Bush administration national security lawyers who recommended that the government keep collecting the phone records. The board described key parts of its report to Obama earlier this month before he announced his plans last week to change the government’s surveillance activities. In that speech, Obama said the bulk phone collection program would continue for the time being. He directed the

Justice Department and intelligence officials to find ways to end the government’s control over the phone data. He also is insisting on close supervision by a secretive federal intelligence court and reducing the breadth of phone records the NSA can investigate. Phone companies have said they do not want to take responsibility for overseeing the data under standards set by the NSA. In addition to concluding that the daily collection of phone records was illegal, the board also determined that the practice was ineffective. “We have not identified

a single instance involving a threat to the United States in which the program made a concrete difference in the outcome of a counterterrorism investigation,” it said, and added, “We are aware of no instance in which the program directly contributed to the discovery of a previously unknown terrorist plot or the disruption of a terrorist attack.” It said the NSA should instead seek individual records relevant to terror cases directly from phone service providers under existing laws. “Given the limited results,

we concluded the program should be ended,” said board member James Dempsey of the Center for Democracy and Technology, a civil liberties group. Dempsey and another board member, former chief federal appeals court judge Patricia Wald, also said the phone sweeps did not appear to have clear or strong legal grounding in the USA Patriot Act — the statute overseeing the government’s surveillance activities. “We have to be careful that secret law does not creep into our jurisprudence,” Wald said.

The board wrote that the phone surveillance did not have a “viable legal foundation” under the Patriot Act, which was used to provide legal backing for the operation after it was secretly authorized by President George W. Bush. The board also said the surveillance raised constitutional concerns about unreasonable searches, free speech and freedom of the press. Two federal judges have split in recent rulings over the constitutionality of the government collecting Americans’ phone records in such a wholesale way.

Virginia AG to fight gay marriage ban By STEVE SZKOTAK The Associated Press

AP file photo

This undated photo provided by the U.S. Geological Survey shows a landslide trench and ridge east of Reelfoot Lake in Obion County, Tenn., made by the New Madrid earthquakes in the early 1800s. U.S. Geological Survey scientists reported Thursday that the New Madrid fault zone is still active and could unleash future powerful earthquakes. The zone in the Midwest produced three strong quakes in 1811 and 1812.

Study: New Madrid fault zone active By ALICIA CHANG The Associated Press LOS ANGELES – The New Madrid fault zone in the nation’s midsection is active and could spawn future large earthquakes, scientists reported Thursday. It’s “not dead yet,” said U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Susan Hough, who was part of the study published online by the journal Science. Researchers have long debated just how much of a hazard New Madrid poses. The zone stretches 150 miles, crossing parts of Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississip-

pi, Missouri and Tennessee. In 1811 and 1812, it unleashed a trio of powerful jolts – measuring magnitudes 7.5 to 7.7 – that rattled the central Mississippi River valley. Chimneys fell and boats capsized. Farmland sank and turned into swamps. The death toll is unknown, but experts don’t believe there were mass casualties because the region was sparsely populated then. Unlike California’s San Andreas and other faults that occur along boundaries of shifting tectonic plates, New Madrid is less understood since it’s in the middle of the continent, far from plate

boundaries. Previous studies have suggested that it may be shutting down, based on GPS readings that showed little strain accumulation at the surface. Other research came to the same conclusion by blaming ongoing quake activity on aftershocks from the 1800s, which would essentially relieve strain on the fault. The latest study suggests otherwise. Hough and USGS geophysicist Morgan Page in Pasadena, Calif., analyzed past quakes in the New Madrid region and used computer modeling to determine that the continuing tremors are not related to the

big quakes two centuries ago. “Our new results tell us that something is going on there, and therefore a repeat of the 1811-1812 sequence is possible,” Hough said. The USGS estimates there’s a 7 to 10 percent chance of that happening in the next 50 years. Arthur Frankel, a seismologist with the USGS in Seattle who had no role in the study, said the latest results seem plausible.

RICHMOND, Va. – Gay marriage moved closer to gaining its first foothold in the South when Virginia’s attorney general said Thursday that the state’s ban on same-sex matrimony is unconstitutional and he will join the fight to get it struck down. “It’s time for the commonwealth to be on the right side of history and the right side of the law,” newly elected Democrat Mark Mark R. Her- Herring ring said in a state that fiercely resisted school integration and interracial marriage in the 1950s and ’60s. Conservatives accused Herring of shirking his duty to defend the state’s laws after less than two weeks on the job, while gay rights activists exulted over the latest in a string of victories – this one in a conservative and usually hostile region of the country. “It’s a nice day to be an American from Virginia,” Tom Shuttleworth, one of the lawyers challenging the ban, said in an email. The move reflects the rise of a new Democratic leadership in Virginia and illustrates how rapidly the political and legal landscape on gay marriage in the U.S. is shifting. Herring, as a state sen-

ator, supported Virginia’s 2006 voter-approved constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of a man and woman. But he said he decided after a “thorough legal review” that it is unconstitutional, and he will join gay couples in two federal lawsuits challenging the ban. “I have now concluded that Virginia’s ban on marriage between same sex couples violates the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution on two grounds: marriage is a fundamental right being denied to some Virginians, and the ban unlawfully discriminates on the basis of both sexual orientation and gender,” he said. A federal judge will hear arguments in one of those lawsuits next week. Herring stressed the ban will be enforced in the meantime, meaning clerks will continue to deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples. In a movement that began with Massachusetts in 2004, 17 states and the District of Columbia now allow gay marriage, most of them clustered in the Northeast. None of them is in the old Confederacy. In just the past five weeks, federal judges struck down gay marriage bans in deeply conservative Utah and Oklahoma, but those rulings are on hold while they are appealed. Gay rights advocates said Herring’s decision is an important gesture in the conservative South.

Ryan says House Republicans will tackle immigration in pieces By PAUL J. WEBER The Associated Press SAN ANTONIO – Rep. Paul Ryan on Thursday told Texas business leaders eager for changes to immigration laws that House Republicans will tackle reform in pieces and ruled out negotiations with the Senate on its comprehensive measure. The Wisconsin Republican didn’t offer a timetable

ahead of next week’s GOP House caucus annual retreat, where Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has said immigration will top the agenda. Supporters of an immigration overhaul are renewing hopes that 2014 could bring the first sweeping changes in decades. Ryan expressed optimism at a luncheon hosted by the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce but reiterat-

ed an insistence among GOP lawmakers that reforms happen piecemeal. “Let’s just say it’s eight bills – I don’t know. These will represent a smart approach,” Ryan said. “We don’t Paul Ryan want to get into a situation where we end up with some big 1,000-page

bill. But we do realize there are things that have to be sequenced.” The Senate last year passed a comprehensive, bipartisan bill that addressed border security, provided enforcement measures and offered a path to citizenship for the estimated 11 million immigrants living in the United States illegally. Ryan made it clear that if the Republican-led House

passes a handful of immigration bills, it won’t enter talks with the Democratic-led Senate on its legislation. President Barack Obama has signaled he’s open to a piecemeal approach but has said all the components must be done in the end. Ryan said Boehner will lay out principles that will include border security and enforcement of immigration laws – an area where Ryan

says Republicans “have a hard time trusting” Obama. Ryan, who heads the House Budget Committee, favors a way for immigrants living in the country illegally to “come out of the shadows” without granting amnesty. He told the audience that immigration “is good for America” and the economy but said the government must keep track of who’s coming and going.

Opposition optimistic after meeting Yanukovych KIEV, Ukraine – The chances of ending the violence that has convulsed the Ukrainian capital are high, a spokeswoman for a top opposition leader said late Thursday after a meeting with the president.

8WORLD BRIEFS South Sudan, rebels sign cease-fire ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia – South Sudan’s government and rebels signed a cease-fire deal Thursday that leaders hope will put a pause to five weeks of warfare that has killed thousands of soldiers and civilians. The peace deal represents the first real progress since political friction turned violent Dec. 15, fueling countrywide battles with ethnic overtones. But questions were immediately raised about whether all fighters in South Sudan would abide by the agreement, and how long others would follow it. The military spokesman for South Sudan cautioned that a group of rebel fighters from the former vice president’s Nuer ethnic group – thousands of armed youths known as the “White Army” – may not want peace. “Riek Machar has been using that force to fight the SPLA, so we have to see what will happen,” said Col. Philip Aguer, using the acronym for South Sudan’s military.

Syrian peace talks yield hard stances, slight hope GENEVA – Syria’s government said stopping terrorism – not talking peace – was its priority, while the Western-backed opposition said “the road to negotiations” had begun, offering a glimmer of hope Thursday for a way to halt the violence that has killed more than 130,000 people. The two sides did not meet face-to-face, buffered by a famously patient U.N. mediator who shuttled between representatives of Syrian President Bashar Assad and members of the opposition trying to overthrow him. And they did not seem ready to do so Friday as originally scheduled. Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem questioned both the point of the talks and the legitimacy of the Syrian National Coalition, which is made up largely of exiles and lacks influence with an increasingly radicalized rebellion.

Fire at Quebec senior home; 3 dead, 30 missing L’ISLE-VERTE, Quebec – A fire raged through a seniors’ home in eastern Quebec on Thursday trapping terrified residents, most of them dependent on wheelchairs and walkers. Three died, 30 were missing and Canada’s prime minister said there is little doubt the death toll will be high. Officials said firefighters saw and heard people in the building that they were unable to save. Acting mayor Ginette Caron said many of those unaccounted for were confined to wheelchairs and walkers, noting that only five residents in the center were fully autonomous. She said some had Alzheimer’s disease. “We can keep some hope for those unaccounted for, but there’s very little doubt that the loss of life is considerable,” Prime Minister Stephen Harper said. The search for the missing was hampered by the cold and thick ice and the fact that the building has collapsed, said Quebec Provincial police Lt. Guy Lapointe. Officials said they would work through the night.

– Wire reports

Olha Lappo, a spokeswoman for Arseniy Yatsenyuk, made the statement on his Facebook page Thursday after an hours-long meeting with President Viktor Yanukovych. That came after opposition leaders gave a Thursday evening deadline to make

concessions or face renewed clashes. She did not provide details, but the assessment appeared to be the first sign of progress in resolving the twomonth crisis that is threatening to spread well beyond Kiev. However, some protesters

were resistant on Thursday night. Opposition leader Vitali Klitschko, one of those who met with Yanukovych, went to the site of clashes to try to persuade demonstrators to hold to an uneasy truce, but was booed and some cried “Shame!” The demonstrators again

set aflame barricades of tires that had been quenched when opposition leaders offered the deadline. The clash site is a few hundred yards away from the protester tent camp on Independence Square, where around-the-clock demonstrations have been held since

early December. At least two people were killed by gunfire at the clash site on Wednesday. Demonstrators had pelted riot police with barrages of stones and set police buses on fire, while the officers responded with rubber bullets, tear gas and stun grenades.

Huckabee: Democrats pitch women on birth control By PHILIP ELLIOTT The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee told fellow Republicans on Thursday that rival Democrats were trying to win over female voters by promising them free birth control and telling them “they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government.” Huckabee made the comment as he was making a pitch that the GOP needs to broaden its appeal and end its internal divisiveness.

Huckabee, a favorite of Christian conservatives and a Fox News personality, told the Republican Party’s leaders and activists that purity tests within the party only shrink the ranks. His speech about expanding the appeal of the GOP, designed to whet the 168-member Republican National Committee’s appetite for a Huckabee 2016 campaign, won a quick rebuke from the White House over contraception. Asked about Huckabee’s comments, press secretary Jay Carney told reporters at the White House that it “sounds offensive to me and to

ductive rights highlighted one of his many hurdles in expanding his appeal beyond Christian conservatives. As part of Democrats’ national health care law, insurers have to provide no-cost contraception – something Huckabee said was pandering. Religious groups, in particular, have opposed the measure as running counter to their faith. “If the Democrats want to insult the women of America by making them believe that they are hopeless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing them with their prescription each month for birth

women.” In private meetings and public speeches Huckabee has been offering a prescription for Republicans to expand their reach after losing back-toback presidential contests. Mike C h i e f a m o n g Huckabee his recommendations is for the GOP to end the Republican-on-Republican fighting that has sometimes hurt his own political fortunes. Huckabee’s take on repro-

would face irrelevance if they don’t update their thinking. “Mike Huckabee has no idea what he’s talking about. If this is the GOP rebrand a year later then all they’ve gotten is a year older,” Wasserman Schultz said. Huckabee, who ran for the White House in 2008, is seriously weighing another White House run and has kept in touch with the party activists in Iowa and South Carolina who were with him last time. At the same time, he has been talking with allies who would help him raise money if he decides to run.

control because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government, then so be it,” Huckabee said, echoing comments he previously has made on his Fox News program. Female voters in 2012 sided with Obama over Republican nominee Mitt Romney, 55 percent to 44 percent. The GOP has struggled to win back female voters and Huckabee’s prescription might complicate that effort. Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz said Republicans

All candidates vowed to live in the governor’s mansion in Springfield • HOPEFULS Continued from page A1 says he will make only take part in a select few debates. Rutherford, Brady and Dillard have used the debates to compensate for their fundraising disadvantage. On education funding, each of the candidates said there needed to be better equity in resources between

urban and rural and rich and poor districts. Dillard told the moderators that Chicago’s predominance at the state Capitol didn’t bode well for other schools cross the state. Rauner advocated changing the “ineffective and murky” funding formula to make schools more equitable. Brady said the state board of education should be eliminated and the state should do away with a number of un-

funded education mandates. And Rutherford said local districts should have more local control over how tax dollars are used. On hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” the controversial method of oil and gas drilling seen as an economic boon to impoverished communities in southern Illinois, all four said they’d support the practice if proper regulations are put in place. State officials are cur-

rently writing the regulations. All also stated they would feel safe drinking the water in that part of the state despite pollution concerns raised by environmentalists. The candidates also discussed whether gambling should be expanded across the state. Dillard and Brady appealed to downstate agricultural interests by advocating for protecting the horse racing industry from losing

more business if lawmakers approve additional casinos. “I’ve never believed expansion of gaming is going to solve Illinois’ economic woes,” Brady said, adding “horse racing, it’s an important part of our economy. We must come up with some sort of solution.” Rauner said local governments should be in control of gambling expansion, while Rutherford said he’d be open

to discuss gambling as long as any expansion package has appropriate oversight. All vowed to live in the governor’s mansion in Springfield, something incumbent Gov. Pat Quinn and predecessor Rod Blagojevich were criticized for not doing. “It’s more than keeping your underwear at the mansion,” Brady jabbed at the Democratic governors, both from Chicago.

Opposition bipartisan Doctor: Vaccine is most effective flu combatant • FRANKS Continued from page A1 money every year by raising them to compensate for the decline in property values caused by the bursting of the housing bubble that caused the Great Recession. Outcry from homeowners whose property tax bills have increased while their home values plummeted prompted Franks to file the bill. In a twist of irony, it is the tax cap that lawmakers passed 25 years ago to keep collar-county residents from being taxed out of their homes that has caused the problem. The cap, created by the Property Tax Extension Limitation Law, limits the annual increase that taxing bodies can receive to either the rate of inflation or 5 percent, whichever is less. McHenry and the other collar counties were capped by state statute in 1991, and lawmakers later allowed other counties to enact them by voter referendum. But when home values decrease – a scenario lawmakers never considered – the tax cap works for government and against the taxpayer by guaranteeing that taxing bodies can collect the inflationary increase, which will be 1.7 percent on the property tax bills paid this year. While some governments, such as the McHenry County Board, have spurned the annual increase in recent years, most others have raised their rates in order to capture it. Franks has made several unsuccessful attempts since 2011 to pass laws that would forbid governments under the tax cap from increasing their levies and collecting more money while property values decline. Opposition has been bipartisan, stoked further by Springfield lobbying groups representing county, municipal, township and other units

of government. Northwest Herald stories in recent years have revealed that lobbying groups for our local governments – which pay their dues with tax dollars – have fought the Franks bills and other tax relief measures, and have fought to further restrict right-to-know laws such as the Freedom of Information and Open Meetings acts. Although housing values are starting to recover – the number of McHenry County property owners who appealed their 2013 assessments fell for the first time in almost a decade after consecutive record-breaking years – Franks said state and local governments have an obligation to reform tax law so that taxpayers never again pay more while their values drop. “Maybe [the advisory referendum] would give some courage to those lawmakers who didn’t vote for it in the General Assembly,” Franks said. The only statewide advisory referendum that has gone to voters since the ratification of the 1970 Illinois Constitution also was a tax-control measure. Commonly called the “Thompson Proposition” after former Republican Gov. James Thompson, the 1978 referendum asked voters whether state law and the Constitution should cap taxes and spending by state and local governments. Voters said “yes” by a resounding 83 percent, but state lawmakers did not advance any legislation as a result. As of 2012, Illinois had the second-highest property taxes of the 50 states, second only to New Jersey, according to a November 2013 report by the Urban Institute, a Washington, D.C.-based economic and social policy research agency. The General Assembly returns to regular session Wednesday to hear Gov. Pat Quinn deliver the State of the State Address.

• FLU Continued from page A1 the flu rate is similar to last year. Positive rapid influenza tests were at about 20 percent on Jan. 4 this year and in 2013, while the number of patients making appointments because of flu-like symptoms was at roughly 10 percent to date for both years. But Hafiz said the main concern is the severity of the particular strain of influenza and the demographic it is affecting. The main flu strain spreading throughout the state and country is the H1N1 flu – known as swine flu – that caused a pandemic in 2009. It is different from other flu viruses because it affects people in their 20s through 40s more than other strains that usually affect elderly and infant populations. “We do expect the older age groups to get sick, but when we start seeing young adults and people in their 30s come in it gets us worried,” Hafiz said. “Even a few admissions are a concern, and we’ve seen that.” That is why it is necessary to take the precautions to prevent the disease on a personal and community level, he said. The most effective combatant of the flu is to get a vaccine, Hafiz said, which is available at local health care providers and pharmacies for $20 to $30. Doing so will

Centegra has taken its own steps to prevent the disease from spreading. Health care providers and staff received flu shots in the fall and there have been changes in how patients visit to reduce potential exposure to the virus. Melany Arnold, spokeswoman for the Illinois Health Department, said the Centers for Disease Control and

Prevention has not reported a shortage of the vaccine despite an increase in flu treatment nationwide. She said there is still time to get a flu shot and encouraged residents to do so as soon as possible because it takes two weeks for the vaccine to take full effect. “The peak of flu season is in January but it can last into March and sometimes into April,” Arnold said. “Even if you have the flu, a shot can make the duration shorter

and less severe.” Flu symptoms include fever, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, body aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Health officials encourage people who exhibit those symptoms to stay home for 24 hours after the fever is gone.

State pension reform didn’t really save us In the wake of overhyped pension reform, experts are reminding us that Illinois’ financial woes are far from over. In fact, they’re not much different. According to the Institute for Government and Public Affairs at the University of Illinois, as the pension systems eliminate their unfunded liability over the next 25 years, the state’s deficit would increase by $13 For the record billion based on current spending Illinois is still wallowing in and revenue. debt, and credit-rating agenWithout the cies remain unimpressed. pension reform passed so far, that deficit would be $14 billion. And that prediction is based on the assumption that the Legislature plans to roll back the “temporary” income-tax increase from 5 percent to 3.75 percent. So before we place a lot of stock in politicians who claim they’ve saved this state from financial collapse via tinkering with pension reform, consider that Illinois is still wallowing in debt and credit-rating agencies remain unimpressed. We should expect that without significant changes in state leadership that the deficit will be used as justification, among others, to make the “temporary” income tax increase permanent as state leaders continue to kick the can down the road. Without far more significant changes to pension reform, which the Legislature and Gov. Pat Quinn decided not to make, changes will have to be made elsewhere or Illinois’ fiscal problems will not improve. Spending must be addressed. You will hear some politicians tell you that revenue also needs to be addressed, which means they want more of your taxes. We’d urge residents to pay close attention to the solutions proposed as election season approaches over the next several months.

Reasonable cut for ethanol Ethanol producers and corn farmers in Wisconsin are unhappy with Gov. Scott Walker because he hasn’t jumped on the Midwestern bandwagon opposing a federal proposal to cut the fuel additive requirement in gasoline. The U.S. EPA has proposed cutting by 3 billion gallons, about 18 percent, the amount of ethanol in the U.S. fuel supply this year. Walker is for the most part a careful politician; he knows that what helps corn farmers and the nine ethanol plants in the state has hurt dairy and other livestock farmers and has the potential for harming the state’s small-engine industry. He has to balance those interests, and he said he made a campaign pledge to not weigh in on the issue. And in this case, Walker is right not to weigh in. The EPA proposal is entirely reasonable, despite what other Midwestern governors and politicians are arguing. It’s the first cut the EPA has proposed since the Renewable Fuels Standard was enacted in 2007; most of the gasoline sold in the U.S. today is a 10 percent ethanol blend. The idea behind the mandate was that it would reduce U.S. reliance on oil imports and be better for the environment – not to mention that it would help growers of corn, a major crop in the Midwest. But the picture has changed since 2007. Domestic production, more fuel-efficient vehicles and fewer miles traveled have done far more than ethanol to reduce the reliance on oil imports and will continue to do so. Ethanol is more expensive to produce than gasoline, and while it does cut greenhouse gas emissions at the tailpipe, in some cases the production of ethanol takes more energy to produce than is saved, raising overall emissions. Faced with those issues, the EPA is doing the right thing by paring the mandate. And the best solution might be to end the mandate altogether. Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

How Bernanke became iconoclast fed chief When President George W. Bush was considering candidates to be chairman of the Federal Reserve in the autumn of 2005, the rap on Ben Bernanke, a brilliant economist, was that he had never faced a crisis, might be too soft for a challenge and wasn’t politically astute. As he prepares to conclude his eight-year tenure as central bank chief at the end of the month, Bernanke is one of the most significant figures in contemporary U.S. government. Few have risen more boldly to confront a crisis, his political talents were underestimated, and the 60-year-old scholar of the Great Depression is about as soft as cast iron. “History will ultimately judge how effective all of the innovations he led were, but I think his leadership has been brilliant,” said Josh Bolten, who was Bush’s chief of staff. “He has led the Fed into new territory, but probably territory where it needed to be.” “He’s one of the best public officials I have ever seen,” said former Massachusetts Rep. Barney Frank, a liberal Democrat who served 32 years in the House and was one of the authors of the Dodd-Frank

VIEWS Albert R. Hunt financial reform legislation. “He was right during the crisis, has proven absolutely right about quantitative easing and the emphasis on employment, is opening up the Fed and has been cooperative on reforms.” This praise isn’t universal. The Fed’s unprecedented intervention in the economy under Bernanke is reviled by some politicians on the right, such as Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and is criticized by some mainstream conservative economists. On the left, critics such as Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., praise his stewardship during the crisis but say he hasn’t done enough in the aftermath to rein in the power of big Wall Street banks. The five largest banks today have more total assets than they did six years ago. Still, few dispute that Bernanke’s bold, decisive and sometimes experimental actions in 2008-09 saved the global economy. “The Bernanke mantra: whatever it takes,” David Wessel

wrote in his book, “In Fed We Trust: Ben Bernanke’s War on the Great Panic.” He “would not go down in history as the chairman of the Federal Reserve who dithered and delayed during a financial panic that threatened America’s prosperity.” As the global economy teetered, and with his unsurpassed knowledge of mistakes made during the Depression, he opened the spigots of credit, took interest rates to zero and rescued major financial institutions. Again with the 1930s in mind, he was willing to experiment much as Franklin D. Roosevelt did; some actions worked, others didn’t. The supposedly naive academic was remarkably persuasive in getting Congress to go along with huge government intervention. And he persuaded some of his reluctant Fed colleagues to present a pretty united front. After the meltdown, he played an important role in fashioning financial and banking reforms. He followed the advice of the central bank’s skillful spokesperson, Michelle Smith, by initiating greater transparency about the Fed’s policies and increasing public outreach

to explain them. He even held periodic news conferences. As the U.S. struggled to recover, Bernanke kept his foot on the gas. With interest rates at zero limiting monetary action, he pushed quantitative easing, the purchase of long-term securities, to stimulate the economy. That controversial approach appears to have been modestly successful, spurring faster growth without inflation. When the chairman announced last month that the bank would begin cutting back its asset purchases, the market’s initial reaction was positive, though some experts still believe this transition will be difficult. As Bernanke completes his service, here’s the picture: a financial system restored to health, an economy on the way back and doing better than those of Europe and elsewhere, one of his top picks, Janet Yellen, on deck to succeed him as chairman, and his professor and mentor Stanley Fischer stepping into the Fed vice chairman’s seat. Never again will anyone describe Ben Bernanke as soft or naive. • Albert R. Hunt is a Bloomberg View columnist.

Stop health care act’s bailout of insurance companies By RAMESH PONNURU Bloomberg View columnist President Obama’s healthcare overhaul looks extremely unlikely to hit the goal set for it in October: enrolling “at least” 7 million people in exchanges by April. So the administration is redefining success as mere survival for the program. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act already has achieved “preliminary sustainability,” an official recently told the National Journal. And what’s making the program sustainable? The prospect of a massive taxpayer bailout. The bailout would come from the law’s “risk corridor” provisions. If insurers pay out more than 108 percent of the premiums they collect from customers in Obamacare’s exchanges, taxpayers are on the hook for about 75 percent of the extra cost. If the insurers make profits that are more than 108 percent of their collections, they have to pay back a similar proportion. Risk corridors, if they’re limited, can serve a useful function. The Medicare prescription-drug benefit that Republicans enacted during George W. Bush’s admin-

istration has its own version of them that works well. Under Obamacare, they could spread the risk among participating insurers. Companies that wind up with relatively healthy populations of customers would subsidize those with relatively sick ones, helping stabilize the system. The Congressional Budget Office, when it last estimated the costs of the Affordable Care Act, assumed that payments to and from insurers would balance and the risk corridors wouldn’t cost taxpayers anything. We’re looking at a different scenario now. Health insurer Humana Inc. recently warned that enrollees in the exchanges will probably be sicker than anticipated. So few if any insurers will be in surplus, and many will be seeking help. In other words, the exchanges as a whole will be unbalanced and in need of a taxpayer bailout. Insurers made business plans that included supporting Obamacare and participating in it. Those business plans, like any other, depended on certain assumptions – in this case, that the program would work well. When the assumptions behind a company’s plans turn out to be wrong, and the federal govern-

8THE FIRST AMENDMENT

ment protects the company from the losses that would normally result, it’s reasonable to call that a bailout – and to object. Taxpayers, after all, took no irresponsible actions. Another assumption the insurers made was that a bailout would be politically sustainable. That assumption also will be tested. Obamacare always has depended, operationally and politically, on an alliance between the administration and insurance companies. But that alliance is vulnerable. The most controversial element of Obamacare to date – the coercive measures it includes to get people to buy insurance – is only there to protect the insurance companies’ viability. A bailout could be just as unpopular a sop to the insurers. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., has introduced a bill to repeal the risk corridors provision. Its passage would be preferable to a bailout, but it would make more sense to eliminate taxpayer exposure altogether. Let companies in the exchanges subsidize each other, and leave the rest of us out of it. Insurers already are screaming about Rubio’s proposal, desperate to keep Obamacare’s

subsidies even as they ask for relief from its regulations. If Rubio’s bill or something like it passes, they would have to raise premiums and thus make their plans even more unattractive than they already are – or just withdraw from the exchanges. Obamacare would, in other words, become even less likely to succeed than it already is. If a bill to eliminate the risk corridors comes to a vote, many congressional Democrats will decide that the success of their cherished health-care program is worth a bailout. But then they will face a choice: Do they really want to stand for an open-ended commitment of tax dollars to insurance companies? Is that what the party now favors? Is that what swing-state senators and swing-district representatives wish to defend? Conservatives, who almost all believe that Obamacare is a very bad law that can’t be made to work tolerably through mere tinkering, have every reason to fight a bailout. Campaigning against one will undermine the alliance between the White House and insurers by raising its price for both parties. Let’s find out just how much “sustainability” that alliance has.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Alleged rapist takes stand Claims Woodstock police threatened him during his arrest By CHELSEA McDOUGALL cmcdougall@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – A McHenry County prosecutor says Charles Oliver locked the women he met on Craigslist in a room or basement, choked some, threatened and raped them. Oliver, 45, is awaiting trial on multiple charges of aggravated criminal sexual assault, kidnapping and unlawful restraint. One alleged victim – there are six

in all – called the basement of Oliver’s Woodstock home a “sex dungeon,” Assistant State’s Attorney Sharyl Eisenstein said. Many of the women were escorts or prostitutes. “[The alleged victims] agreed to sex for Charles money, but once they Oliver got back to his house, the defendant operated by another set of rules – his rules,” Eisenstein said.

Attorneys on Thursday argued various motions that outlined what evidence and testimony jurors can hear at Oliver’s upcoming trial. Oliver took the stand, testifying about the events the night of his January 2013 arrest. His defense attorney, Mark Facchini, previously sought to ban from trial incriminating statements Oliver made to officers that night. On the stand, Oliver said a Woodstock police detective had threatened him, saying police told him they

“owned his life.” “[Detectives said they] would come back with more charges, and more charges, and raise your bond so high you wouldn’t be able to get out,” Oliver said. McHenry County Judge Sharon Prather did not rule Thursday on whether statements he made that night – including those in which he told officers his arrest was all about money – would be admissible.

TEEN STRUCK BY CAR IN MARENGO MARENGO – A 13-year-old boy was taken to the hospital after being hit by a car Thursday afternoon, a fire official said. The boy was crossing Grant Highway at East Street about 5 p.m. when he was hit, said Capt. John Kimmel of the Marengo Fire Protection District. He was flown by Flight for Life to Rockford with unknown injuries, Kimmel said, adding that he didn’t believe the injuries were life-threatening. The driver, who stopped, wasn’t injured, he said. Additional details weren’t available Thursday evening. A call made to the Marengo police chief wasn’t returned Thursday evening.

Marion Berntsen is seen Thursday walking to her room in Anja Hertel’s home in McHenry. Berntsen has been living in Hertel’s McHenry home for the last six months. The two are embroiled in a legal battle in which Berntsen, 73, said Hertel stole items from her, including personal mementos. Last week, a judge gave Berntsen a week to move out, and that week expired Tuesday. Berntsen is expected to move out by Friday morning.

‘Sovereign citizen’ has until 9 a.m. Friday to vacate McHenry home By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com McHENRY – The nightmare that has consumed Anja Hertel’s life for the past six months is almost over. Her tenant, 73-year-old Marion Berntsen, has until 9 a.m. Friday to move out of Hertel’s McHenry home where she has been renting a room for the past six months. Hertel filed a petition to evict Berntsen after Berntsen called the police more than 10 times, accused Hertel of stealing her belongings and filed an order of protection

as well as a civil lawsuit claiming $15,000 in damages for stolen items. Berntsen removed most of her belongings from the home Thursday, but she returned later that afternoon, Hertel said. “I don’t know if she’s waiting for the sheriff’s department to come and kick her out or if she’s waiting for someone to pick her up,” Hertel said. “The last six months have been nerve-racking to say the least. Right now, I’m feeling relieved that the sheriff[’s

LITH OKs off-road vehicle rules Fundraiser to help Use prohibited where sound can be heard from near property lines By JOSEPH BUSTOS jbustos@shawmedia.com LAKE IN THE HILLS – A new ordinance aims to help keep the amount of noise down from off-road motor vehicles. The Lake in the Hills Village Board on Thursday approved new rules for off-road motor vehicles in town. Under the new rules, the village prohibited the use of off-road motor vehicles, such as mini-bikes, all-terrain vehicles and snowmobiles, where sound can be heard from 100 feet from the property line and the noise disturbs the peace and comfort of a neighbor-

ing property. For about a year, the police department has had complaints from residents for continuous operation of off-road vehicles in residential areas around the community. Many of the incidents have occurred during the daytime on weekends, especially during the summer when people have their windows down. The department tried to resolve the issue with voluntary compliance, but it did not have a long-lasting effect, according to a staff memo written by Director of Police and Public Safety James Wales. The ordinance is meant

to be enforced when a resident complains about the noise. If an officer sees someone operating an off-road vehicle in a residential area, the person won’t be stopped, police officials have said. However, if there is a complaint about the noise, then the officer will investigate and give a warning or a citation. The ordinance excludes agricultural vehicles being used for agricultural work, or work being done by public agencies in response to weather emergencies. Those who violate the ordinance would face a fine of at least $100.

displaced residents Twenty-six people still without homes after McHenry fire By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com McHENRY – Residents of a fire-damaged apartment building won’t be able to move back in for at least another eight weeks. The McHenry County Housing Authority has been sheltering 26 of 33 people who were displaced following a fire nearly two weeks ago at Riverside Hotel, a

three-story, 40-unit apartment building at 3308 W. Elm St. in McHenry. The owner of the building, Dick Buchert, did not return a call for comment. The maximum assistance provided by the housing authority is about four weeks, and there may not be enough money in the budget to continue housing the displaced residents, Community Service Director Sue Rose said. The affected residents might have other fire-related expenses, she added. To help, Corkscrew

CRYSTAL LAKE: ONLINE CAREER TRAINING

DISTRICT 300

Officials reshuffle administrative jobs MCC partners on Two positions slated for elimination after school year will save district $143K By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO sdibenedetto@shawmedia.com CARPENTERSVILLE – District 300 officials recently reshuffled job duties within their central office, eliminating two positions estimated to save the district $143,000 in salary and benefit costs. But the moves simply reallocate resources within the Carpentersville-based school district, said spokesperson Al-

lison Strupeck. “These were not cost-cutting decisions but rather, reallocation of resources,” Strupeck said. “We will determine in the coming months where to distribute these funds in other areas, as needed.” District board members earlier this month terminated an administrative position tasked with providing district support to its secondary schools and a support staff

position in the district’s grant management and programs office. The cuts go into effect after this school year. The administrator – formally called the RTI/PBIS coordinator – made $99,000 in salary and collected $22,000 in benefits. The support staffer earned $22,000 with no benefits. Both duties will be folded into existing positions within the administration by the end

of the school year, Strupeck said. The administrative changes came nearly a week before Superintendent Michael Bregy created a major shake-up within the district’s central office. He was hired Tuesday to head North Shore District 112. The search for his replacement will intensify in the coming months before Bregy departs for the Highland Park area at the end of May.

KANE COUNTY: FACILITIES POLICY

Kane County considers charging fees for use of property Committee plans to revisit “Nothing is free anymore. I think everybody I’ve ever issue at February meeting seen charges for their facilities.” Doug Scheflow

By ASHLEY SLOBODA

Kane County board member

asloboda@shawmedia.com GENEVA – The Kane County Board soon might create new criteria for those wanting to use county property for events. The Administration Committee on Thursday discussed the possibility of implementing fees for certain groups, among other changes. The county’s existing policy outlines guidelines for use of the lawn and parking lots of the Kane County Government Center, the Third Street Courthouse, the Circuit Clerk

Office and the Judicial Center. Applicants must provide such information as the proposed use, the estimated attendance and whether refreshments will be sold. The policy states the events must be temporary and cannot disrupt the business inside the buildings. It also recommends applicants obtain liability insurance. Board member Doug Scheflow, R-Elgin, said insurance should be required.

“I’m not worried about them,” he said. “I’m worried about the county.” He also suggested charging for the use of county facilities, noting other governmental bodies charge for theirs. “Nothing is free anymore,” Scheflow said. “I think everybody I’ve ever seen charges for their facilities.” Theresa Barreiro, D-Aurora, agreed, but Phil Lewis, R-St. Charles, did not. He said a distinction should be made

preference will be given to bands with at least one member residing in the Cary Park District. Spots are limited, according to a news release. The winning band will be decided by a panel of judges and will move on to compete in a regional competition, according

to a news release. The winner of the regional competition will move on to compete in the state competition in Springfield. The Cary battle of the bands is scheduled to take place May 10 at the Lions Park Rotary Bandshell. Interested bands must submit a

between private use, such as a wedding reception, and public use, such as an event sponsored by a municipality. The Geneva Chamber of Commerce, for example, has submitted requests for Swedish Days in June, classic car shows in July and August, the Geneva Fine Art Show in July, Festival of the Vine in September and the Christmas Walk in December. Drew Frasz, R-Elburn, agreed that charging a private, for-profit enterprise has merit. For a future meeting, he asked staff to provide a list of the events held on county property in recent years. The committee plans to revisit the subject at its February meeting.

certificate programs NORTHWEST HERALD CRYSTAL LAKE – The McHenry County College Continuing Education Department has announced a new partnership with Ed4Online to offer in-demand online career training certificate programs. Programs are available to start anytime at a student’s convenience. Certificate programs include CompTIA Health Information Technology (HIT), CompTIA Health Information Technology with Exam Prep and Electronic Health Records. The CompTIA Health Information Technology course covers how to organize and secure health information to improve the quality, safety and efficiency of the health care delivery system. The CompTIA Healthcare IT Technician Exam Prep course prepares students to pass the Healthcare IT Technician certification examination (CompTIA HIT-001). The nation’s health care

delivery system is rapidly being transformed by computer-based health information systems, especially with the use of electronic health records. The Electronic Health Records course answers the need for health care students to understand the entire medical office workflow process. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor, the job outlook for medical records and health information technicians is expected to increase by 21 percent through 2020. The newly added HIT and CompTIA HIT Exam Prep course will serve to enhance the abilities of individuals working in medical settings, who deal primarily with information technology and data entry.

CRYSTAL LAKE: INCOME TAX SERVICES OFFERED

‘He lived and breathed history’

MCC to host free tax assistance program

Northwest Herald ‘On This Day’ columnist passes away at 81

NORTHWEST HERALD By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – The only way Joseph Morton could rationalize retiring was that he was going to be just as busy. The retired Northeastern Illinois University professor turned out two books on early American history and wrote a weekly “On This Day” column for the Northwest Herald, which he hoped to turn into another book. Morton, 81, died Wednesday night at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington.

“He lived and breathed history, and he made it come alive,” his son, Richard Morton, said. “I didn’t follow in his footsteps, but I enjoyed listening to him talk.” Joseph Morton and his wife, Deanne, have four chilJoseph dren, Robert, Morton Richard and his wife Janine, Joseph Jr. and his wife Kathleen, and Jacqueline. They also have four grandchildren, Drew, Daniel, Sabra and Noah. “He always pushed us to do

as well as we could academically,” Robert Morton said. “He thought that was very important. He was also very involved in our sports. He managed my [Little League] baseball team as well as my brother’s.” Joseph Morton loved baseball, especially the Chicago Cubs and the Washington Senators. He also followed college sports, rooting for his alma mater, the University of Maryland, where he received his undergraduate degree, master’s and doctorate, all in history. The love of history started

when as punishment for skipping three days of school in a row, Morton’s father made him read Carl Sandberg’s six-volume biography of Abraham Lincoln. “Sandburg was not a very good historian, but he was a very good writer,” Morton told Northwest Herald editor Dan McCaleb in 2010 when he first started writing his “On This Day” column. Morton spent as much as eight to nine hours researching for his columns, said his son, Joseph Morton Jr. “He did it because it gave him something to do that he loves,” he said.

Berntsen also has not paid the last three months worth of rent, a total of $1,500. “It’s endless,” she said, adding that the civil lawsuit is still making its way through the court process. Berntsen is seeking $15,000 in damages, for personal property that Berntsen says Hertel stole, including love letters from her deceased husband, $70 worth of garbanzo beans and other canned goods, toiletries, utensils, 10 boxes of VHS tapes, pillows and blankets and other items totaling $3,396.

Feb. 9 court date set for status on remaining pending motions • OLIVER Continued from page B1 Because of the number of allegations against his client, Facchini feared the court proceedings would be-

come “a trial within a trial.” Prosecutors said they would only introduce testimony from witnesses who had similar encounters to the case being tried. The first of six trials is set for Feb. 24.

Rogers out for rest of season after knee injury

LEFT: McHenry junior Hayden Carey (on top) wrestles Crystal Lake South’s Nick Dorn during the 170-pound match Thursday in Crystal Lake. Carey won, but South won the dual meet, 37-24. BELOW: Crystal Lake South’s Casey Callahan (left) wrestles McHenry’s Cody Patchett at 152 pounds. Callahan won in an ultimate tiebreaker.

Perfect way to finish

By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com Austin Rogers sensed right away that something was very wrong with his right knee. The Crystal Lake South senior forward jump-stopped in the lane against Marian Central, in overtime Wednesday night, and collapsed. “I landed and my Austin whole knee gave out, Rogers and I knew,” said Rogers, who leads the area in scoring at 23.4 points a game. “It was kind of like what happened to [Bulls guard] Derrick Rose.” Rogers received the news Thursday afternoon he had expected: He has a torn ACL, medial collateral ligament, meniscus damage and a fracture in the knee. His final high school game was like many others this and last season, as he was difficult to stop, scoring 28 points. Rogers, who is 6-foot-2 and 205 pounds, was still in the gym when Collin Wagner banked in a 3-point fadeaway falling out of bounds at the buzzer for an 85-84 victory. “It was the coolest shot I’ve ever seen,” Rogers said. The celebration was dampened by the Gators knowing their best player was probably done. Rogers was well on pace to hit 1,000 points for his career. It also casts doubt on South’s promising season at 13-4. “This is the end of the road for me. I can’t finish my senior season,” Rogers said. “I’ve had a good start, and we’re playing well. And now I know I can’t be a part of the end of the season, which is sad.” Rogers was examined by Dr. John Daniels of Crystal Lake Orthopedics and received an MRI. Rogers said Daniels probably will perform surgery on the ACL in two or three weeks. “They hope the MCL will heal on itself so they don’t have to do two surgeries,” Rogers said. Rogers, a Northwest Herald All-Area defensive back in football, is still deciding which sport he will play in college. He originally was thinking football, but his basketball success has caught the eyes of college coaches. “I don’t know anything yet,” he said. “I’m still undecided. I’m considering both sports. I may go somewhere and not play. I don’t know what’s going on yet.”

rsmith@shawmedia.com McHENRY – Crystal Lake South had secured a share of the Fox Valley Conference Valley Division team title in wrestling heading into its dual meet Thursday against McHenry, but the Gators weren’t content to settle for a tie. The Gators, aided by an injury-depleted Warriors lineup, completed their undefeated Valley Division season with a 37-24 win. South coach Ross Ryan said it was important for his team to finish strong. “There’s something about fin-

ishing what you started,” Ryan said. “There’s not many times you have the opportunity to be perfect.” After giving up decision losses in two of their first three matches, the Gators (6-0 FVC Valley) reeled off six consecutive wins, highlighted by a pin at 138 pounds by Nick

Gil, a major decision by Eric Barone (145) and an ultimate tiebreaker win by Casey Callahan at 152. Callahan was in a battle with the Warriors’ Cody Patchett in a match that ended regulation tied, 1-1. A scoreless overtime sent it to tiebreakers, where each got an escape to send it to an ultimate tiebreaker. Callahan had scored first to get his choice and opted for the down position, where he escaped to win the match. “I kept the pace up and finished strong,” Callahan said. “I knew we were both tired, but I had to keep pushing it.”

Callahan said the close match forced him to wrestle a little defensively, something he’d rather not do. “I like to push the pace and keep scoring points,” Callahan said. “I like to finish my shots.” Barone defeated Carter Herber, 21-9, in a match that featured 10 takedowns by Barone, who kept giving Herber escapes to set up more takedowns. Barone said it wasn’t his intent to wrestle that kind of match, but he wasn’t able to get Herber on his back.

Rooftop silliness is Cubs’ own doing How did this rooftop mess come about? Think of a line from “The Sun Also Rises”:

Inside SoxFest: White Sox general manager Rick Hahn has made several moves this offseason that should please those attending this weekend’s fan convention.

”How did you go bankrupt?” Bill asked. “Two ways, Mike replied. “Gradually, then suddenly.” Yep. The gradually part for the Cubs began decades ago. Neighbors climbed onto their rooftops and watched games at Wrigley Field from their perches nearly 500 feet from home plate. Lousy view, but casual, no big deal. Nobody paid anything. I have a photo of myself on a rooftop on Sheffield Avenue with three other people from June 1987, me standing on the flat surface, shading my eyes to view the distant action, no bleachers, no nothing except a cement block for perching on and a couple of lawn chairs,

Fair play: Greg Maddux and Tony La Russa will not have team logos on their Hall of Fame plaques after successful careers with multiple teams. Stories, page C4

VIEWS Rick Telander plus sunscreen. Then the Cubs improved, capitalism set in, and building owners began tricking-out their rooftops with bleachers, party rooms, food, beer, TVs and charging fees. Watching a game from a rooftop became cool. A venture once considered to have little value escalated. The suddenly? That happened Wednesday when a meeting between Cubs officials and rooftop owners over the new signs and scoreboard the Cubs have proposed went wacko. The rooftop owners even filed a defamation suit against Marc Ganis, a stadium consultant for the former own-

ers, the Tribune Co., saying he shouldn’t have called the rooftop folks “carpetbaggers” a year ago, and the impasse “one of the most ludicrous situations in the history of sports facility development.” Funny, but all that is true. And yet, there is something odd going on here, something Tom Ricketts and Cubs management only now is beginning to comprehend. There is a 20-year contract between the Cubs and the rooftop owners, giving the Cubs 17 percent of the owners’ revenue, lasting until 2023. It is a contract the Cubs – see Crane Kenney – agreed to and signed. It may be the craziest contract ever. But it’s real. And the rooftop owners know this. The Cubs seem to only recently have figured this out.

‘Thibs’ hopeful Rose can play in World Cup

Killer of Redskins’ Taylor sentenced to 57 years

Guard in 28-man USA pool By JOE COWLEY jcowley@suntimes.com The last time Derrick Rose participated in USA Basketball, the Bulls point guard eventually walked away with the 2011 NBA MVP. Call it a dose of confidence that Rose never let go of that season. Bulls coach Tom ThiboDerrick Rose d e a u w o u l d love a repeat performance. Rose was one of 28 players named for the 2014-16 USA national team pool Thursday, and if his surgically repaired right knee can respond in time, he could play in this summer’s FIBA World Cup in Spain. “Well, I’m hopeful that he will,” Thibodeau said of Rose on Wednesday night. “But a lot depends on where his health is. But I thought it was a great experience for him in the past. I know how much he enjoyed it. I know how USA Basketball feels about him. I think it’s a great honor and a privilege, and hopefully it’ll work out.” Rose was a member of the gold medal team that won the World Championships in the summer leading into the 201011 season, and he helped guide

the Bulls to the Eastern Conference Finals in the wake of that. “It challenges guys,” Thibodeau said of the USA Basketball experience. “I think it’s beneficial to all the players. I know Derrick, my first year when he played that summer in the World Games, he hit the ground running. He had a great season. He was the MVP. But I thought that experience was invaluable to him.” The next step in the pool process for Rose would be showing he’s healthy enough to qualify for the team, and USA Basketball Chairman Jerry Colangelo addressed that in a teleconference, mentioning two injured guards: Rose and Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook. “Certainly Derrick Rose, we’re not sure about,” Colangelo said. “We have a fluid roster. We continue to watch players and prepare ourselves.” Thibodeau was named an assistant coach on the staff last season, so if Rose can give it a go there will be a very familiar face watching him closely.

LeBron heads national team pool LeBron James and 10 others from the 2012 U.S. Olympic basketball team are remaining in the national team pool, joined by a group of newcomers hoping for their first chance at gold. USA Basketball selected 28 players Thursday to choose from for the World Cup of Basketball this summer in Spain and the 2016 Rio Olympics. Carmelo Anthony was also chosen, giving him and James a chance to play in a fourth Olympics and win a third gold medal. Also selected from the 2012 gold medalists were: Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, Kevin Love, James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Deron Williams, Anthony Davis, Tyson Chandler and Andre Iguodala. Only Kobe Bryant, who has said he is finished with international competition, wasn’t selected. The other players picked were: Derrick Rose, Dwight Howard, Blake Griffin, Stephen Curry, LaMarcus Aldridge, Paul George, DeMarcus Cousins, Kyrie Irving, Kawhi Leonard, David Lee, Bradley Beal, Kyle Korver, Damian Lillard, Andre Drummond, Kenneth Faried, Klay Thompson and Gordon Hayward. – Brian Mahoney, The Associated Press

Blackhawks goalie Antii Raanta gives up a goal to the Wild’s Jason Pominville in the first period Thursday in St. Paul, Minn.

WILD 2, BLACKHAWKS 1

Minnesota remains hot, hangs on in end Hawks’ frantic finish comes up short The ASSOCIATED PRESS ST. PAUL, Minn. – Jason Pominville and Matt Cooke scored first-period goals and Darcy Kuemper made 33 saves and the Minnesota Wild defeated the Blackhawks, 2-1, on Thursday night. The Wild, who lost to the Hawks in five games in the first round of the playoffs last season, have won three of four against them this season. The Hawks lost in regulation for only the second time since Dec. 15. Kuemper was making his sixth consecutive start as Minnesota’s top two goalies, Josh Harding and Niklas Backstrom, have been sidelined with health problems. The Wild are 5-3 with rookie in the net this season. Patrick Kane spoiled Kuemper’s shutout bid when he scored his 24th goal of the season with 31.2 seconds left to bring the Blackhawks to within one. But Kuemper stopped one final flurry in the last 10 seconds and Zach

Next for the Hawks Winnipeg at Hawks, 6 p.m. Sunday, CSN, AM-720 Parise cleared the puck from Minnesota’s zone to run out the clock. Pominville opened the scoring at 8:08 of the first period. Dany Heatley carried the puck across the Hawks’ blue line and passed to Mikael Granlund near the goal mouth. Granlund spun back around and slid the puck across the slot, where Pominville was waiting to send it in the open net for his 20th of the season. The Hawks killed off a 5-on-3 power play, but Minnesota doubled its lead late in the first period. Justin Fontaine won a race to a loose puck and tipped it to Cooke, who slipped it past Antti Raanta from the left faceoff circle.

Kuemper got a little help from his defense to keep it 2-0 late in the second. During a Minnesota power play, Pominville tripped at the Hawks’ blue line and Marian Hossa pounced for a short-handed breakaway. But defenseman Ryan Suter caught up to Hossa just in time to prevent him from getting a clean shot. The Wild welcomed Parise back on Thursday after the U.S. Olympic Team member missed 14 games with a broken left foot. Notes: Hawks defenseman Duncan Keith missed his first game of the season Thursday. He was a pregame scratch because of illness. ... Hawks senior adviser Scotty Bowman is scheduled to have right knee replacement surgery Friday in Tampa, Fla. The 13-time Stanley Cup champion has a residence about an hour from Tampa. ... Kuemper’s mask broke during the second period, and he used Backstrom’s mask for about 10 minutes while it was being fixed.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – In a meeting of teams stuck in four-game skids, No. 17 Ohio State had just enough to get by in the closing moments. Joseph Bertrand scored 19 points, Jon Ekey had 11 and Nnanna Egwu added 10 but Illinois sank to its fifth straight loss with a 62-55 setback at Ohio State on Thursday night. “We were just a play or two away, but give them credit for making those plays,” Fighting Illini coach John Groce said. Illinois (13-7 overall, 2-5 Big Ten) pulled to 41-40 on 3s by Ekey and Bertrand and then tied it at 46 on Tracy Abrams’ slash through the lane. He missed the cap on a possible three-point play, however, and at the other end Shannon Scott fed LaQuin-

The teams traded missed chances until Lenzelle Smith Jr., who had 16 points for Ohio State, stepped in front of a bad pass by Abrams and fed Scott for a left-handed layup with 3:50 remaining for a 51-46 advantage. With the Buckeyes hanging on at 52-50, Ross drove the lane against the Illinois zone and was

fouled, banking in a shot and adding the accompanying free throw with 2:07 left. The Illini then turned it over on an offensive foul by Rice before Smith poured in a 3 from in front of the Ohio State bench for a 58-50 lead with 75 seconds remaining. “That’s how a lot of our games have been so far,” Bertrand said. “We really haven’t had a bad game since [a 95-70 loss at No. 4 Wisconsin on Jan. 8]. Ever since then they’ve been pretty close and it’s been a couple of plays at the end.” The Illini led 25-24 at the half, but Groce thought they could have gotten even more out of the opening 20 minutes. “I was really proud of our guys’ defensive effort.

Browns end long search, hire Pettine as coach CLEVELAND – After nearly a month of twists, turns and talk, the Browns found their man. Mike Pettine is Cleveland’s new coach. Buffalo’s defensive coordinator, who met with team officials for the first time a week ago, finalized a contract Thursday to become the Browns’ seventh fulltime coach since 1999. The team fired Rob Chudzinski on Dec. 29 after one season and embarked on a winding search that ended with Pettine. “We wanted to be thorough from the start,” CEO Joe Banner said, “and we interviewed as many people as we could. From that group, we hired the best individual for this job.” The 47-year-old Pettine, the son of a legendary Pennsylvania high school coach, spent one year with the Bills after four as Rex Ryan’s defensive coordinator with the New York Jets.

Cink, Perez start fast; Woods fails to break par

Illinois drops 5th in a row The Associated Press

MIAMI – The man who prosecutors say fired the shot that killed Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor during a botched 2007 burglary was sentenced Thursday to more than 57 years in state prison. Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Dennis Murphy imposed the sentence on Eric Rivera, 23, one of five Fort Myers-area men charged with Taylor’s death after they broke into his house looking to steal cash. One has pleaded guilty and three others are still awaiting trial. Rivera confessed to police on videotape that he shot Taylor after the NFL player confronted them at his bedroom door with a machete. In the confession, Rivera also said the group didn’t realize Taylor would be home with a knee injury instead of playing a Redskins game against Tampa Bay.

SAN DIEGO – The best score belonged to Stewart Cink. The best round belonged to Pat Perez. Tiger Woods didn’t come close to claiming either Thursday in the Farmers Insurance Open, where the seven-time champion failed to break par in the opening round for first time in his career. Cink ran off three straight birdies late in his round on the easier North Course at Torrey Pines for an 8-under-par 64. That gave him a one-shot lead over Gary Woodland, who also was on the North, which is more than 600 yards shorter. Perez was on the South Course, host of the 2008 U.S. Open and with greens so firm this year that it felt like a major. Perez had a 67, the best score on the South by two shots, and even more astounding is that he played bogey-free. The South played nearly four shots harder than the North. Woods, making his 2014 debut, failed to birdie any of the par 5s on the South Course and had to settle for a 72.

McHENRY COUNTY COLLEGE BASEBALL

Marian grad Herendeen commits to D-I New Mexico St. By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com An injury and a coaching change threw Lincoln Herendeen a curve his senior year at Marian Central. Herendeen, a 2012 Marian graduate, had signed with NCAA Division II Illinois-Springfield to play baseball, but that school changed coaches. Then, Herendeen tore a ligament in his left wrist while sliding into home plate. Uncertain about a coach who did not recruit him and about the injury, Herendeen stayed closer to home, decommitting and playing last season

at McHenry County College. And by taking that different path, Herendeen will end up at a D-I school for his final two years. Herendeen, a pitcher-infielder, has committed to New Mexico State in Las Cruces. “I decided to stay home instead of going away,” Herendeen said. “I got a little older, a little bit stronger, and it definitely has paid off. I could not be more happy with my decision.” Herendeen had such a strong season as a senior at Marian – a 3-0 record, 2.53 ERA, 34 strikeouts and 12 walks in 211/3 innings – that he was selected to the Northwest Herald

All-Area first team despite missing the last month of the season. He also hit .446 with three home runs and 25 RBIs in 22 games. Last season he was 6-3 with a 4.10 ERA in 521/3 innings for the Lincoln Scots. He did not play Herendeen as much in the field last season, but MCC coach Jared Wacker plans on using Herendeen at shortstop more this season. “Not only is he physically gifted, he has one of the best motors of any

kid I’ve coached,” Wacker said. “He’s at 100 percent effort all the time. He should play a big role on the mound and at shortstop for us.” Herendeen is the fifth MCC sophomore to commit to a D-I or D-II school for next year. Although he was recruited as a pitcher, Herendeen hopes the Lobos might also use him as a position player. “They told me there is a possibility of playing two ways there,” Herendeen said. “Because they like my swing and me playing infield. I like to pitch, and I like to hit. Whatever they want me to do, that’s what I’ll do. I kind of hope I can swing until

they say, ‘No.’ ” Herendeen takes hitting lessons from former Marian player Craig Strang, who was the Northwest Herald Player of the Year in 1991 and played at NAIA Bellevue, Neb. One of the coaches on Bellevue’s NAIA World Series champion team was Mike Evans, who now is the pitching coach at NMSU. Through those coaching contacts, Strang helped Evans find Herendeen. “I went down there and showed them what I could do,” Herendeen said. “I could not be more excited to make the commitment.”

8INSIDE BOYS SWIMMING Athlete of the Week KEVIN BRAUN McHenry, so. Braun won the 100-yard freestyle at the Jefferson Invitational in 49.49 seconds, which is just a little more than a second off the state qualifying standard. Braun also helped his team to a win in the 200 freestyle relay. The sophomore sprinter also helped his team win the 200 medley relay in a dual-meet tie against Huntley last week.

Noteworthy Closing in: Cary-Grove co-op’s Adam Eibel is swimming well and is ahead of where he was last season. The senior went to the state meet last season as part of a relay team and now has a shot at qualifying for state as an individual. Eibel’s primary strokes are the 200 individual medley and the 100 breaststroke. He is about three seconds off the qualifying standard for the IM and one second off the breaststroke standard. “He tapers really well,” Trojans coach Rick Schaefer said in reference to the end -of-season rest period when athletes swim fewer yards to build up energy. “His taper really defines him, and he is ahead of where he was at this time last season.” The senior really wants to qualify as an individual, and Schaefer has noticed that extra drive in practice, which has separated him from his peers. “If you can’t make state, you should die trying,” Schaefer said. “Eibel is one kid that’s really working hard.” Full speed ahead: Alex Reinbrecht has qualified for the state meet in each of his first three years and is hoping to place at the meet this season. The Jacobs co-op senior keeps a log of his times and has put an emphasis on racing against those times this season. Last week at the St. Charles Invitational, Reinbrecht won the 200 freestyle in 1:46.23, which is one second off the state qualifying standard and ahead of where he was at this point last season. The area’s top distance swimmer also won the 500 freestyle in 4:52.24. Look for him to shave some time in both of those events in the coming weeks.

This week’s top meets Woodstock co-op, McHenry at Mary Landa Invitational 11 a.m. at Woodstock North This will be the first year the invite will be named the Mary Landa Invitational. The name change will honor Landa, a former Woodstock swimming coach who died during the summer. She remained involved with the boys and girls teams. Huntley, Cary-Grove at Buffalo Grove Invitational 11 a.m. at Elk Grove Elk Grove has a fast pool, and this meet features many strong teams. C-G coach Rick Schaefer likes to put his swimmers in their best events during Saturday meets, so look for some fast times from the Trojans. Huntley has a few swimmers who are close to the state qualifying standards. – Patrick Mason

Senior heads to D-II school By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com Crystal Lake Central senior Kyle Lavand recorded the best season of any quarterback in Crystal Lake Central’s history, and college coaches took notice. Lavand, who threw for 2,311 yards with 21 touch- Kyle Lavand downs and seven interceptions, committed Wednesday to play football at NCAA Division II Northern State in Aberdeen, S.D. Lavand will sign his NCAA National Letter of Intent on Feb. 5. Lavand (6-foot, 185 pounds) visited Northern State the weekend of Jan. 11 and had been in touch with Wolves defensive backs coach Jason Hoskins since the fall. He also was considering D-III national powers Mount Union (Ohio) and North Central, along with D-II Quincy, D-III Wisconsin-Platteville and NAIA St. Ambrose. “When I went there, I was their No. 1 guy [at quarterback]; they really wanted me,” Lavand said. “I felt wanted.

stuff we kind of did and fits well with what I think I can do well.” Lavand completed 150 of 265 passes and rushed for 652 yards while leading the offense of the Fox Valley Conference Fox Division championship team. “He had a little more confidence going in as a senior,” Tigers coach Matt Fralick said. “He had transferred [before his junior season] so he knew some of the kids, but the school and everything was new. One of the things we talked about was making him more of a dual threat running the ball.” Lavand added 15 pounds and increased his speed while working with trainers Chris Leathers (Your World Fitness in Spring Grove) and Dave Davis (Davis Speed Center in Crystal Lake). He also worked with former NFL quarterback Jeff Christensen’s Throw It Deep Academy, which helped his footwork and mechanics. “Pretty much, all-around I got better with my strength, I went up about 15 pounds, I got a lot faster,” Lavand said. “My running abilities were a lot better. I think I got better in every aspect, and my mobility really helped.”

Former Cubs and Atlanta Braves pitcher Greg Maddux will not have a team logo on his Hall of Fame plaque.

BASEBALL HALL OF FAME

No team logo for Maddux La Russa also will have blank cap on Hall of Fame plaque By CHRIS De LUCA cdeluca@suntimes.com Cubs fans who hated the idea of seeing Greg Maddux sporting an Atlanta Braves cap on his Hall of Fame plaque can breathe a sigh of relief. Maddux and Hall officials settled things Thursday by deciding no logo was the best option. Maddux and Tony La Russa, who began his managerial career with the White Sox, have opted to have no logos on their plaques that will be shown in the Hall’s gallery in Cooperstown, N.Y. White Sox great Frank Thomas, who spent seasons with the Oakland Athletics and Toronto Blue Jays late in his career, will wear a Sox cap on his plaque. Hall president Jeff Idelson said his staff works with each inductee to decide the appropriate logo – or to go with no logo at all. “For those whose most compelling contributions clearly took place with one team, a logo makes sense,” Idelson said. “For those whose careers were built significantly among multiple teams, not having a team logo is equally acceptable. Regardless of the selection, a Hall of Famer belongs to every team for which he played or managed, as well as every fan who followed his career.” There are 128 plaques (out of 300) in the Hall that feature players wearing caps with no logos. Catfish Hunter,

“It’s impossible for me to choose one of those teams for my Hall of Fame plaque.” Greg Maddux Former pitcher, on choosing between the Cubs and Atlanta Braves who starred with the A’s and New York Yankees, was the last inductee to go in without a logo. Hunter was inducted in 1987. After giving the decision much thought, Maddux decided no logo was the best solution to honor his career that included two stops with the Cubs, huge years with the Braves and final stops with the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers. “My wife, Kathy, and I grew up in baseball in Chicago, and then we had just an amazing experience in Atlanta with the Braves,” Maddux said. “It’s impossible for me to choose one of those teams for my Hall of Fame plaque, as the fans of both clubs in each of those cities were so wonderful. I can’t think of having my Hall of Fame induction without support of both of those fan bases.” La Russa won World Series with the A’s and St. Louis Cardinals, but knows his roots go back to Chicago. “The Chicago White Sox gave me my

start in the game as a big-league manager for my first eight seasons in my 33-year managerial career,” La Russa said. “In Oakland, we recorded four first-place finishes in 10 years, winning three pennants and a World Series. And in St. Louis, our clubs won three pennants and two titles in 16 years. It’s the totality of the success of each of those three teams that led me to Cooperstown, so I am choosing to not feature a logo so that fans of all clubs can celebrate this honor with me.” For Thomas, there was no option but the Sox. “I was drafted by Chicago in the first round, and for 16 of my 19 seasons I was fortunate to play there,” Thomas said. “I had wonderful seasons in Oakland and Toronto as part of my career, but my Hall of Fame election is celebrated most by the fans of Chicago and the priceless memories I will always treasure on the South Side, which is why my plaque will feature a Sox logo.” Maddux, Thomas and former Braves pitcher Tom Glavine were elected to the Hall of Fame by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America on Jan. 8. La Russa, Bobby Cox and Joe Torre were elected to the Hall of Fame by the Expansion Era Committee a month earlier. The six newest members of the National Baseball Hall of Fame will take their permanent place in Cooperstown on July 27.

By DARYL VAN SCHOUWEN dvanschouwen@suntimes.com Rick Hahn has done the unthinkable. In his second offseason as White Sox general manager, Hahn has found a way to heal a wounded fan base in the months after a horrible 99-loss season. And he’s done so even though his team won’t be expected to con- Rick Hahn tend in 2014. All Hahn has done is acquire enough good, young position-player prospects to complement a solid, young pitching staff led by Cy Young candidate Chris Sale, a nice mix that seems to have the Sox – even without Masahiro Tanaka – on the right path to being good again before too long. Perhaps by 2015. A fan base well known for showing its grumpy side will convene for SoxFest on Friday through Sunday at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago not completely rid of a bad baseball hangover from 2013, but pretty much sold on Hahn’s transparent plan to make it all better. In Rick they trust. Hahn has acquired $68 million Cuban first baseman Jose Abreu, right fielder Avisail Garcia, center fielder Adam Eaton and third baseman Matt Davidson in trades and free agency since the middle of last season. Those deals potentially add four new regulars, almost half a lineup, under long-term team control. They also boosted the Sox’s bottom-of-the-barrel prospects rankings to something more respectable. This is not to suggest those new, young Sox are locks for greatness. “On paper, there is a future for every one of those moves but there again, nobody is proven,’’ one major league scout said. “Davidson is not proven. [Garcia] has good talent, but he’s not proven, either. Eaton is your typical leadoff guy center fielder, and his best years should be ahead of him, but he’s not proven. That’s where you have to trust your scouts.’’ The Sox did part with a proven, 25-year old closer in Addison Reed to get Davidson (the Diamondbacks were happy

to get him for a third baseman that was behind two others in their system) and versatile 26-year-old left-hander Hector Santiago to fetch Eaton. So their supply of good, young pitching has taken a hit. With every gain comes a cost, which Hahn and his staff seem to get if increased spending in scouting means anything. After ranking last in draft spending from 2007 to 2011 and being KOed from Latin American talent searches because of the David Wilder kickback scandal, the Sox are investing more on both fronts Hahn’s special assistant in Latin America, Marco Paddy, reeled in a huge international catch in teenage outfielder Micker Zapata, signed for $1.4 million. New, strict bonus pools with stiff penalties for overspending put the Sox, who have spent 100 percent of their bonus pools in the past two drafts, back in the game. “In the end it’s about winning in Chicago, and the acquisitions we’ve made in the last few months are a big part toward that,’’ Hahn said. “But what I personally feel good about is the improvements we’ve made on the player development side, the scouts we’ve added [pro, amateur, international], the re-introduction of this club to the international signing market which will help us long term, and fully funding those departments now.’’ Sox payroll figures to fall below $90 million (it was $112 million last year) but chairman Jerry Reinsdorf said in December there was room to add for the right cause, which turned out to be a somewhat surprising nine-figure multiyear pitch for Tanaka. The attempt failed but hiked the Sox approval rating with fans. “We have enough money to win,” Hahn said. “We have enough to build a competitive club and if sometimes we have to be creative or take some chances or make some trades as opposed to just papering over mistakes [with money], so be it.” Mistakes? Last season was so riddled by them that fans stopped paying attention to the Sox at midseason. They were so hard to watch. With a sound plan being executed for all to see, there is reason for hope – and to pay attention again.

Benson Henderson (left) joins Josh Thomson on Thursday during a news conference at the United Center for their UFC fight Saturday.

UFC IN CHICAGO

Thomson, Henderson Rooftop lawsuit could lead to years of delays highlight card at UC • TELANDER Continued from page C1

Nothing is going to be accomplished at Wrigley until the rooftop owners agree to it, until they’re satisfied with the altered views, etc. The Cubs have a problem. Moving to a new ballpark is ludicrous. Eminent domain – taking over the buildings on Waveland and Sheffield for the public good – will never happen. So we have lawsuits and anger and possibly years of delays ahead. Maybe stuff will never happen at Wrigley. “They agreed to it,” George Loukas said of the contract. Who is George Loukas? He is a real estate man who owns the Cubby Bear at the corner of Clark and Addison, plus buildings at 1032 W. Waveland, 3643 N. Sheffield, and 3609 N. Sheffield – all with rooftops. His kids do the managing these days, but George is never far away. Loukas is not the kind of guy who caves in. He played football at Southern Illinois, and one of his daughters, Chris-

tina, was a national diving champ and finished eighth at the London Olympics. His older brother, Angelo, played football for Northwestern and the Buffalo Bills. His other brother, Tony, played football at Wisconsin. Angelo’s son, Alexander, was an All-State quarterback at Deerfield High School and played at Stanford. Tony’s son, Dino, was a champion pro rodeo rider. The Loukas family is tight. Sports and business bind them. They all love the Cubs. But, like the other rooftop owners, they refuse to be taken advantage of. “The Cubs have been very secretive on everything they want to do,” said Loukas, adding that the past four years have been hard for rooftop owners because the Cubs stink and nobody wants to watch them from far away. Or up close, for that matter. “We’re struggling to pay our bills,” Loukas said, pointing out that rooftop owners had to spend millions to tear out all wood supports in their buildings and put in steel and concrete before they could do business. It’s such a weird situation. Loukas

acknowledges as much. “The Cubs could have bought the whole neighborhood back in the ’80’s, but they wanted no part of it. In 1990, John McDonough, when he was the Cubs’ marketing head, came to us, went up on the roof, and I said, ‘I’ll be your broker and help you buy everything.’ Never heard back.’’ As for the Ganis lawsuit, it’s a crazy, maybe vengeful one. Before he left Wednesday for business in China, Ganis, who consults around the globe, emailed me, saying the suit is curious, but he’s cool with it, and it “can go wherever the evidence leads.” Which might be a whole new pot of yuck. So there you have it. Putting the proposed Jumbotron on the building rooftop at 3701 N. Kenmore might solve everything, but probably not. This is Cubness, staggering onward. • Rick Telander is a Chicago SunTimes sports columnist who can be reached at rtelander@suntimes.com.

The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – Josh Thomson is hoping Benson Henderson has his sights on another title fight against Anthony Pettis. The veteran fighter will be squaring off with Henderson in a five-round lightweight bout as part of another network televised card Saturday night at the United Center. Henderson (19-3), the former UFC lightweight champion, gave up the title after being submitted by Pettis’ armbar at UFC 164. Henderson had a seven-fight winning streak going into the fight against Pettis, which was the second longest in UFC lightweight history. Two of the three Henderson’s losses came against Pettis. Henderson is aiming at a third fight against his rival with the belt on the line this

summer if he can beat Thomson (20-5) on Saturday. Thomson appears to be just another fighter in Henderson’s path to get to Pettis. “[Pettis] can stay injured for a year, stay hurt till July, two years, whatever,” Henderson said. “Every guy UFC would give a title shot to, send them my way. I’ll go down the entire list of the top 10. I will beat everybody. Let’s do that. When he is healthy, when he does come back then I’ll be waiting.” Thomson, , who will be giving up five years in age to the 30-year-old, isn’t expecting to be overlooked. “No, I don’t think he does. I think he is a confident person. He was just the champion for the last two years. He would be a fool to underestimate me, which would be fine with me if he did,” Thomson said.

Stanislas Wawrinka makes a forehand return to Tomas Berdych during their semifinal match Thursday at the Australian Open in Melbourne. rinka won big points. Left-hander Nadal has a commanding 22-10 lead in head-toheads against Federer. His 8-2 lead in Grand Slams includes the 2009 Australian final and the semifinals here in 2012. “We’ve had some epics,” Federer said. “I hope we can slug it out.” Wawrinka has never beaten Nadal in a dozen attempts and has only one victory over Federer in 14 attempts. Then again, he’d lost 14 straight to Djokovic until his upset earlier this week, and that was a confidence boost. It was tight against Berdych, with just one service break in the match and only one point between them in the end. To reach the final “it’s because I beat Berdych tonight; I won against Novak also. I had some great matches,” he said. “So that mean’s I have the level to be there.”

against Roger would be amazing.” Federer is into his 11th consecutive semifinal at Melbourne Park – he has won five and gone on to win four finals. “This one feels different because of the tougher times I’ve had in Slams,” said Federer, who lost in the second round at Wimbledon and the fourth round at the U.S. Open last year when he was struggling with muscle injuries and getting to terms with a new, bigger racket. To get this far he had to beat 2008 finalist Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the fourth round and Wimbledon champion Andy Murray in the quarterfinals. He said he was inspired by Wawrinka’s upset quarterfinal win over three-time defending champion Novak Djokovic. Federer watched it on TV and caught himself fist-pumping when Waw-

The Associated Press MELBOURNE, Australia – The usually diplomatic Roger Federer didn’t bother concealing his preference for semifinal winners at the Australian Open. He wanted an all-Swiss final, the first ever in a Grand Slam. Eighth-ranked Stanislas Wawrinka held up his end of the bargain with a 6-3, 6-7 (1), 7-6 (3), 7-6 (4) win over Tomas Berdych to reach his first major final. Now the pressure is on the 17time major winner to complete the match up. The major obstacle in his path: a semifinal against Rafael Nadal. Now it’s Iron Stan’s turn to sit back and watch two of the greatest players ever do battle Friday for the right to meet him in Sunday’s final. “For sure I’m going to really, really enjoy,” Wawrinka said. “I’m going to watch the match tomorrow in front of my TV, maybe with some popcorn. “I always try to watch when they play because you can always learn. You can always see the best tennis ever on the tour.” The 33rd installment of the Nadal-Federer rivalry – the 11th in Grand Slams – should be enthralling viewing. Wawrinka’s joked that he’d prefer a walkover most of all, but likes the idea of a Swiss decider. “My record against Rafa is not really good, and neither against Roger, but for sure to play a Swiss final will be amazing,” he said. Federer “is the best player ever. For me it’s my first final. To play

Not asking for bride’s hand Elevated eye pressure not is poor first step for groom always a sign of glaucoma Dear Abby: My boyfriend, “Chad,” proposed two months ago, but he didn’t ask my parents for my hand in marriage. My parents are upset about it. When I realized Chad hadn’t gone to them, I asked him why. He said he was following what his father had done – proposing first and then speaking to the parents. But Chad still hasn’t done it. In fact, he has yet to be around them at all. How do I get my boyfriend to speak to my parents? They are no longer as angry as they were, but they still would like to talk to him. I spend lots of time with Chad’s family, but I can’t get him even to go to lunch with mine. Dad said if Chad doesn’t clear the air with him, he may not bother showing up at our wedding. What do I do, Abby? – Fiancée In A Fix Dear Fiancée: You appear to be quite young. If I were you, I would take a step backward and see this from your parents’ point of view. It appears Chad wasn’t entirely honest with you when he gave his reason for not talking to them. Could he be intimidated? When a daughter marries, most parents want to know something about the young man – not only where he has been, but also what are his plans for the future, includ-

against the law. – Mike In California Dear Mike: You do not

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips ing where the two of you will be living and whether he has a job. That Chad is hiding from them isn’t a good sign. When most couples become engaged, the parents of the bride and groom usually get together and start to form a relationship. If your father hasn’t met your fiancé, it makes it harder for your parents to reach out to his. When the in-laws are friendly, it makes for a more harmonious marriage. As it stands, it appears Chad is not interested in having any relationship with your family. Frankly, I can’t blame your father for being upset about it. Dear Abby: My wife and I disagree on whether to tell our kids and friends how we met. When my wife and I met, she was underage. She was 16 and I was 21. We fell in love; it was true love. We have been together for 24 years. We have two beautiful children and have made a wonderful life together. I love her as much today as the first time I met her. How should we answer people when they ask about how we met and fell in love? I know it was wrong and

have to quote chapter and verse when someone asks a question. In a case like yours, you could say you met when you were both quite young without going into the specifics. For a 21-year-old to see a 16-year-old girl is not against the law, as long as her parents approve and they are not having sex. The laws regarding statutory rape were enacted to prevent predators from preying on minors. Dear Abby: When I buy a sweater, I usually get an extra button in a little clear baggie attached to the garment. Today, I bought a sweater with a piece of matching thread in the tiny plastic bag. Why do manufacturers insist on adding something to every article of clothing even if it is just a piece of thread? – Inquisitive In

Illinois Dear Inquisitive: The thread is provided in case the garment needs to be rewoven in the event you get a hole in it or a tear. It’s a courtesy to the customer, so stop looking a gift horse in the mouth.

Dear Dr. K: At my last appointment, my ophthalmologist mentioned something about elevated eye pressure. What could this mean? Dear Reader: Elevated eye pressure is often – but not always – associated with glaucoma. Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that cause vision loss by damaging the optic nerve, which transmits visual information from the eye to the brain. How does elevated eye pressure (also called intraocular pressure) damage the optic nerve? Normally, a clear liquid called the aqueous humor circulates through the eye, helping to maintain the eye’s shape and pressure. Eventually, the liquid passes through a sieve-like system of tissues and drains out of the eye. (I’ve put an illustration of this process on my website.) In glaucoma, this drainage system breaks down, slowing or blocking the outflow of fluid. The fluid backs up, and pressure rises inside the eye. Why is this? Imagine filling a balloon with water. Say you’re squirting water into the balloon with a turkey baster and pinching the opening of the balloon to keep the water inside.

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff There’s just a little amount of water in the balloon. When you loosen the opening, water will dribble out because there’s not much water pressure inside. But say you fill the balloon until you think it’s close to bursting. Now when you unpinch the opening, water will shoot out – the more water inside the balloon, the greater the water pressure. It’s the same with your eyeball. When pressure builds inside the eye, this puts pressure on the optic nerve. If the pressure continues, optic nerve fibers begin to die off and vision fades. This damage is irreversible. Eye pressure is measured during any standard eye exam. Elevated pressure can indicate glaucoma – but not everyone with slightly elevated pressure will get glaucoma. That’s because the amount of stress the optic nerve can withstand differs for each person and each eye. Just as not everyone with slightly elevated pressure will get glaucoma,

it’s also true some people with normal pressures will get glaucoma. Their optic nerves are unusually susceptible to what in most people are normal pressures. That’s why your eye doctor would not only have measured your pressures. He or she also would have looked for additional signs of glaucoma. For example, if the front surface of your optic nerve, called the optic disc, was affected by glaucoma, the doctor would have seen “deep cupping.” A deeply cupped disc appears indented and more pale and yellow than normal. It means whatever the pressure in your eye is, the optic disc (optic nerve) is being damaged. If you do have (or later develop) glaucoma, topical medications – eye drops or ointments – can help to control eye pressure and stop the progression of the disease. You also should have two to four eye examinations a year to make sure the disease is not progressing. If it is, you may need more aggressive treatment. • Write to Dr. Komaroff at www.askdoctork.com or Ask Doctor K, 10 Shattuck St., Second Floor, Boston, MA 02115.

REVIEWS & LOCAL SHOWTIMES OF NEW MOVIES ON SCREEN NOW

“Lone Survivor” STARRING: Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch PLOT: Based on the failed June 28, 2005, mission “Operation Red Wings.” Four members of SEAL Team 10 were tasked with the mission to capture or kill notorious Taliban leader Ahmad Shahd. RATED: R for strong bloody war violence and pervasive language TIME: 2 hours, 1 minute VERDICT: With all the talk about fact-based films and how accurate they should or shouldn’t be, it’s worth noting some stories are best brought to screen as simply and purely as possible. This is especially true with a film like “Lone Survivor,” Peter Berg’s expertly rendered account of a disastrous 2005 military operation in Afghanistan. War is messy, and politics are messy. But Berg has wisely chosen to focus pretty squarely on the action, and to present it as straightforwardly as possible. And he’s executed that approach with admirable skill, down to using autopsy reports to get the number of wounds a soldier suffered exactly right. “Lone Survivor” doesn’t have nearly the sweep of a major war film like Spielberg’s “Saving Private Ryan.” But the action scenes – basically, one protracted, harrowing firefight – feel as realistic as any

“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

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 of himself, has somehow set fire to the winter stockpile. (Watch for the nice shot of popping corn kernels from an exploding tree – it will remind you there’s a reason you’re wearing those 3-D glasses.) But Surly doesn’t seem willing to help solve the situation, and he’s banished from the park to the city. There, he discovers a nut shop – cashews, peanuts, hazelnuts, you name it. 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. So who’ll win out, the human criminals or the park animals? And will Surly remain, er, surly and uncooperative, or will he work with the others? And what about Raccoon? Is there something menacing in that deep, husky voice? Parents may concern themselves with these issues, while kids may simply be focusing on the puns, and, oh yes, the fart jokes. And if they get tired of those, there’s always the animated PSY – yes, that PSY – at the end, singing and dancing his way through “Gangnam Style” as the credits roll. Never mind that this movie is supposed to take place some 50 years before the song came out. It’s all mildly entertaining – if slightly nuts. – The Associated Press

year and five scheduled through 2015. In “Ride Along,” Hart’s rapid banter comes off naturally, as if he’s always improvising. Cube’s no-nonsense approach, punctuated by his steady straight-face, offers an ideal contrast. Ben (Hart), who has just been accepted into the Atlanta police academy, is ready to ask his girlfriend Angela (Tika Sumpter) to marry him. But first, he’s determined to get the approval of her older brother, James (Cube), an Atlanta police officer. But at 5 feet, 4 inches tall, Ben is far from James’ biggest fan. He’d pictured his sister with a brawny athlete, “not the mascot,” he says. In order to prove he’s worthy of asking for Angela’s hand, Ben must accompany James on a 24-hour patrol of Atlanta. Unfortunately, Ben doesn’t do a great job of being tough or discrete. He likens police work to his “Call of Duty” video gaming and

calls Angela “bouncy butt” after telling her, “You make me think of rainbows because we both love colors.” It’s one of many absurdly funny lines Hart delivers while trying to prove himself to James. And their exchange, reminiscent of smooth-talking Will Smith and the foolish Martin Lawrence in “Bad Boys,” is consistently amusing. When James requests a day of “Code 126” cases, cop lingo for an annoying situation, Ben is put to the test as he attempts to get a crew of loitering bikers away from a storefront and put a drunken grocery store customer in custody. Though primarily a flunky in any physical task – he can’t even shoot a shotgun without its recoil hurling him backward – Ben uncovers a number of clues throughout the day, helping James with his hunt for the ruthless and allusive Atlanta kingpin Omar.

James’ tests, Ben refuses to bow down and accuses James of having trust issues. “That’s why you don’t have a partner,” he says, foreshadowing a sequel. After fellow officers (played by John Leguizamo and Bryan Callen) set up James during a supposed bust, Ben comes to his rescue, which wins him big points with James. This predictable “Training Day”-goes-slapstick romp, directed by Tim Story (“Think Like a Man”), is far from innovative and reaches an “oh, lord” level when Cube says a few of his signature lyrics, including “Today was a good day” from his 1992 album “The Predator.” But since the whole film is full of camp – down to James’ black muscle car and the police captain who won’t get off his back – moments like these don’t feel out of place and Cube and Hart are a welcomed new pair. – The

“Ride Along” STARRING: Ice Cube, Kevin Hart and Tika Sumpter PLOT: Fast-talking security guard Ben joins his cop brother-in-law James on a 24-hour patrol of Atlanta to prove himself worthy of marrying Angela, James’ sister. RATED: PG-13 sequences of violence, sexual content and brief strong language. TIME: 1 hour, 40 minutes VERDICT: Joining the ranks of odd-couple police comedies, “Ride Along” delivers laughs over action, with loudmouthed funnyman Kevin Hart driving the hilarity. Stepping into the role of rapper-turned-actor Ice Cube’s sidekick in this buddy-cop farce, Hart had a lot to live up to. Cube (real name O’Shea Jackson) and Chris Tucker were classic quipsters in the 1995 pot-comedy “Friday” that started it all, and when then-newcomer Mike Epps dropped in on the sequel, his chemistry with Cube led to a third film. The formula is always the same: Cube, who is level-headed for the most part, gets into trouble with his ridiculous sidekick. “Ride Along” is no different, and that’s OK. It’s a blueprint we’ve come to rely on for nearly 20 years. With roots in stand-up, Hart continues to make a successful transition from stage to screen, with three films released in the past

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: 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. As Costner’s character says, he too much resembles “a Boy Scout on a field trip.” One unlikely cameo should be noted: New York’s famed repertory art-house theater, the Film Forum, appears early in the movie when Ryan swaps information at a screening of “Sorry, Wrong Number.” At least in “Shadow Recruit,” the interior has finally been upgraded to plush stadium seating.

“AMERICAN HUSTLE”

STARRING: Chris Pine, Kevin

we’ve seen on the screen for some time. That firefight, for those unfamiliar with the story (Berg also penned the screenplay, based on the memoir by former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell), took place June 28, 2005, in the craggy mountains of Afghanistan’s Kunar province. As part of Operation Red Wings, Luttrell and three fellow SEALS were positioned on a hillside, tracking a Taliban commander in the village below, when they suddenly encountered a few local shepherds. Their agonized decision on what to do with those shepherds, one of them a teenager, led to a string of events that ultimately resulted in 19 American deaths. Of course, the title, “Lone Survivor,” and the fact Luttrell is played by the movie’s star (Mark Wahlberg, in a strong and moving performance) tells you much of what’s going to happen from the get-go. But that doesn’t hurt the film’s immediacy and power. In fact, you may have a hard time sitting still. Berg opens with footage of real Navy SEAL training and the extremes it reaches – some might call it unnecessary and overly worshipful, but for people who don’t know a lot about the SEALS, it’s helpful and effective. We’re also given a sense of the lighthearted camaraderie at the military base, in between operations, as the men joke about wives and girlfriends back home, or compete in foot races. One of the SEALS worries about how to afford a wedding present for his bride. The veterans engage in a little good-natured ribbing of a new arrival – involving some silly dancing. But all lightness disappears suddenly, and for good. Soon, Luttrell is hunkered in the mountains with his comrades: Michael Murphy (Taylor Kitsch), Danny Dietz (Emile Hirsch), and Matt “Axe” Axelson (Ben Foster). All seems to be going well until the moment they encounter the villagers; the ensuing debate is a painful one. Do they let them go and risk certain discovery? Or do they “terminate” the problem? The men also touch on a heavier question: what connection, in a deeper sense, do these shepherds have with the enemy? But a decision comes, and then the battle, with the men literally falling down the mountainside, smashing repeatedly into rocks, their bodies gashed and broken. Several of them fight while shot and gravely wounded. One virtually sacrifices himself to call for help. A rescue effort goes catastrophically badly. And then comes the amazing end to the story: How, and with whose help, Luttrell manages to survive to tell his tale. Although it’s a matter of record, we’ll keep the suspense alive here. At the end, we see photos of the actual casualties of Operation Red Wings. It does not seem gratuitous, and no further explanation or exposition is given, or needed. Again, the best thing about Berg’s work here is its simplicity. –

BIEBER ARRESTED IN MIAMI

THINGS

Police in Miami Beach said pop singer Justin Bieber has been charged with resisting arrest without violence in addition to drag racing and DUI. Police also said the singer told authorities he had consumed alcohol, smoked marijuana and taken prescription drugs. Police Chief Ray Martinez told a news conference Thursday morning the singer was initially not cooperative when an officer pulled him over for drag racing. According to police, Bieber was driving a Lamborghini and R&B singer Khalil, who was also arrested, was driving a Ferrari. Both cars were towed.

‘SNL’ writer Colin Jost named to ‘Weekend Update’ anchor desk

After 38 years, The Captain and Tennille headed for divorce Captain and Tennille, the popular 1970s married pop duo that sang of sharing forever and of love keeping them together, are splitting. Cathryn Antoinette Tennille, better known as “Toni,” has filed in an Arizona court to end her 38-year marriage to Daryl Dragon, or “The Captain.” The two already are listed as ex-husband and ex-wife on their website, which says while their marriage appeared to be rock-solid, “almost all people naturally evolve over time, (and) sometimes hidden feelings start to be uncovered.” The divorce petition says the couple’s marriage is irretrievably broken. They were married the same year their hit song, “Love Will Keep Us Together,” earned a Grammy award for record of the year in 1975. Tennille’s attorney declined comment Thursday, and a call to Dragon’s number in Prescott where the couple retired in 2008 went unanswered. The two have no children. The divorce petition asks that any community property, debt and obligations be equitably divided. It also states that neither Tennille, 73, nor Dragon, 71, is entitled to or in need of spousal support. While Tennille has been active in Prescott, voicing over a promotional tourism video for the city in 2011, singing at local spots and training Australian shepherd dogs, Dragon’s health kept him wanting to stay home. Tennille wrote in a blog in 2011 that tremors due to a neurological condition had made it difficult, if not impossible, for Dragon to play the keyboards and that he was embarrassed to go out in public. Kim Kapin, a former spokesman for the city of Prescott, said he sought out Tennille and her “killer pipes” for the promotional video. “Toni was totally prepared and committed to being directed and giving us what we needed,” Kapin said. “Not an ounce of pretentiousness.” The Captain and Tennille had 14 songs on the pop singles chart, with half of them in the Top 10. Their songs also included “Muskrat Love,” ‘’Do That To Me One More Time” and “Shop Around.” The duo also briefly hosted a variety show.

“Saturday Night Live” says Colin Jost will be the new man at the “Weekend Update” anchor desk. Jost, the NBC comedy show’s head writer, succeeds outgoing “Update” anchor Seth Meyers, who soon takes over as host of the network’s “Late Night.” Jost will join Cecily Strong as co-anchor of the “SNL” spoof newscast on March 1. Head writer since 2012, he joined the “SNL” writing staff in 2005. He also has written and appears in “Staten Island Summer,” an upcoming movie based on his days a lifeguard. A 2004 graduate of Harvard University, he was president of the Harvard Lampoon. Meyers’ farewell “SNL” appearance will be Feb. 1.

Bradley Cooper coming to Broadway Bradley Cooper, not too long ago crowned “sexiest man alive” by People magazine, is coming to Broadway in an ugly role. Producers said Thursday that the “Silver Linings Playbook” and “American Hustle” actor will star in “The Elephant Man” this fall. It’s about a disfigured man in Victorian London whose own inner goodness forces people to re-evaluate their notions of beauty. It will be directed Scott Ellis and co-star Patricia Clarkson and Alessandro Nivola. The stars and director were all in the 2012 Williamstown Theater Festival production of the play. The Broadway revival will be at a Shubert theater to be announced later. Cooper was last on Broadway in 2006 opposite Julia Roberts and Paul Rudd in Richard Greenberg’s “Three Days of Rain.” The last time “The Elephant Man” was on Broadway was in 2002, with Billy Crudup in the starring role. The play by Bernard Pomerance shows some two dozen snapshots in the life of the grotesque John Merrick, tracing his journey from an abused circus freak to a curiosity of

London’s high society. The original “The Elephant Man” was an astounding success during the 1978-79 theater season, first off and then on Broadway, where such diverse performers as David Bowie and Mark Hamill eventually followed the mesmerizing Philip Anglim in the title role.

World Cup song to feature J-Lo, Pitbull FIFA says Jennifer Lopez will team with rapper Pitbull and Brazilian singer Claudia Leitte to perform the official World Cup song for this year’s tournament. Soccer’s governing body made the announcement Thursday but didn’t say when “We Are One (Ole Ola)” will be released. The song was written and co-produced by Pitbull. Leitte says she is looking forward to “dancing samba with Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez in Brazil.” Shakira wrote “Waka Waka” for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

Aberdeen, home of music legend, to proclaim Feb. 20 Kurt Cobain Day Twenty years after his death, Kurt Cobain is getting more recognition in his Washington state hometown. Aberdeen Mayor Bill Simpson says the Nirvana frontman’s birthday on Feb. 20 will be proclaimed Kurt Cobain Day in the city. KXRO reports the proclamation reads, “Aberdeen residents may justifiably take pride in the role our community played in the life of Kurt Cobain and the international recognition our community has gained from its connections with Kurt Cobain and his artistic achievements.” Cobain was born in 1967, gained fame as the lead singer for the grunge rock group Nirvana and died by suicide in 1994 in Seattle. Aberdeen is on the Washington coast about 80 miles southwest of Seattle.

Events slow down, but area shops hard at work on 2014 projects

T

he dialog amongst us car types is always the same at this time of the year. What’s happening car wise for 2014? Who’s building what? Are any car shows coming up? There are quite a few new automotive builds going on all over the county. From an ultra rare brass-era car from the turn of the 20th century, up through classics, hot rods, customs, factory muscle cars and prestigious luxury models. Then there are sports car races, stock car races, car shows and swap

ON CARS Fred Blumenthal meets. 2014 is starting with a huge bang, and here’s I’ve found to be going on. The best way to find out what new collector cars and trucks are being worked on for 2014 is to visit the shops that specialize in restoring or refurbishing these types of rides in our area.

First stop was Restorations Unlimited 2 in Cary (www.ru2inc. com). The world-renowned shop has several special vehicles to be made new for their owners, and one huge multi-year project that is nearing completion in just a few months. The car I’m talking about is a 1911 Alpena Flyer, the only one left in the world. When I first saw what remained of the original car about five years ago, it was hard to believe it would look and drive just like it did when new. This prestigious automobile will be going back home

to its owner in Alpena, Mich., in just a few months. Next was a very rare R-code 1963 1/2 Ford Galaxie XL two door hardtop. This ultra-rare beauty is in the shop for a complete body off frame restoration. The limited edition early ’60s six-passenger highway hauler is powered by the 427-cubic-inch single overhead cam monster engine by Ford and backed up by a factory-installed four-speed transmission. Up on a lift, I spotted a 1932 Chrysler four-door sedan, an extremely good looking automobile. The car

came into the shop in December for a mechanical restoration. The mid1930s class has a mere 5,083 original miles on it. Another car the shop just took in was a 1969 1/2 Dodge Charger “SE.” The two-door hardtop is powered by a factory 440-cubic-inch V-8 engine and four-speed manual transmission. As I looked the car over, shop foreman Ray Morey wrote down a very long list of missing trim parts the car would need for its restoration.

A 273-horsepower, 3.7-liter V-6 engine is mated to a six-speed shiftable automatic transmission in the Grand Touring model of the 2014 Mazda CX-9.

Mazda CX-9 deserves more attention Mazda CX-9 fast facts Vehicle: Grand Touring model of 2014 Mazda CX-9 Type: all-wheel-drive, three-row, seven-passenger sport utility/ wagon Price: $36,625 Engine: 3.7-liter, 273-horsepower, double overhead cam, 24-valve V-6 Transmission: six-speed shiftable automatic Towing: 3,500 pounds properly equipped Wheelbase: 113.2 inches Length: 200.6 inches Width: 76.2 inches Height: 68 inches Weight: 4,559 pounds Ground clearance: 8 inches Leg room: 40.9 inches front, 39.8 inches second row, 32.4 inches third row Tires, wheels: P245s mounted on 20-inch aluminum alloys Fuel tank: 20 gallons Fuel: regular unleaded Cargo: 17.2 cubic feet with seats in three rows upright, 48.3 cubic feet third row down, second row up, 100.7 cubic feet maximum Suspension: struts front, multilinks rear, stabilizer bars front and rear Brakes: discs, 12.6-inch vented front, 12.8inch vented rear Turning circle: 37.4 feet Assembly: Japan Warranty: three years or 36,000 miles with 24-hour roadside assistance, five years or 60,000 miles powertrain Information: www. mazdausa.com

Earlier this year, a 2013 Mazda CX-9 arrived for a week of test driving. It was a loaded $36,375 Grand Touring model. I recently received a 2014 Mazda CX-9 – also a loaded Grand Touring model, but it cost $36,625. The price increase of $250 reflects the single item that is new for 2014: a rear cross traffic alert system. What was written about the 2013 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring model bears repeating with the 2014 vehicle. The CX-9 can be described as a wagon, sport utility or minivan. In the sense of a wagon, the CX-9 has a power hatchback that opens to a carpeted flat cargo area after the third row has folded into the floor. As an SUV, it has a raised suspension, off-roading equipment and huge tires. As a minivan, it can seat eight adults in relative comfort in its three row. However, if two of the rows are folded into a flat floor, storage capacity reaches 100.7 cubic feet, which is far below that of traditional minivans such as the Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan, Nissan Quest, Toyota Sienna or Honda Odyssey. A bigger difference between a CX-9 and a traditional minivan is the rear doors. On traditional minivans, they slide open or shut. On the CX-9, they are hinged to swing open or shut. No matter what it is called, though, this vehicle is a wonder to behold. As sales stand today, Mazda’s CX-9 is awaiting discovery. Although overlooked in the marketplace, it is what a family vehicle should be. It seats seven. Properly equipped, it can tow a 3,500-pound trailer. Its maximum cargo capacity far exceeds the 70, 80 or even 90 cubic feet that is common in the midsize wagon/SUV market. Leg room in all three rows is ample, officially measuring 40 to 41 inches. Headroom suffers a bit in the third row, but access to it should please those who sit there. The rear doors are as large as the front doors, so anyone can easily climb into this vehicle. From either side, the split second row seats fold and move forward to provide easy entry to that third row. When seats in the three rows are upright, 17.2 cubic feet of storage space remains. The power open and close liftgate opens to a padded floor. The two rear rows fold flat for a smooth load surface. The CX-9 comes in three trim levels, Sport, Touring and Grand Touring (front- or all-wheel-drive). Prices start at $29,285, $32,480 and $35,025 respectively. Delivery is $795, the same as in 2013. Replacing front- with all-wheeldrive will cost $1,600, which pushed the list price of the tested model to $36,625. The three share the same 3.7-liter, 273-horsepower, double overhead cam V-6 engine, shiftable six-speed automatic transmission and design and storage capacity.

REVIEWS Jerry Kuyper Besides a power liftgate, the tested Grand Touring model had power heated leather front seats (memory for driver), power heated exterior mirrors, power door locks, remote entry and keyless ignition. A power moonroof is part of a $2,435 GT Tech options package that also includes a color touch-screen navigation system, satellite radio and an upgraded Bose sound system with 10 speakers instead of six. Also standard on the Grand Touring model are fog lights in front, bi-xenon headlamps, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a self-dimming rear view mirror and leather cabin trim, including all seat surfaces. During combined interstate and city driving with two adults and 50 pounds of cargo on board, the tested 2014 CX-9 averaged 20.7 miles per gallon. The Environmental Protection Agency rates the 4,559-pound AWD vehicle at 16 mpg city, 22 mpg highway and 18 mpg combined. EPA figures for a front-wheel-drive CX-9 are slightly better. There is a 20-gallon tank on board. Acceleration is even and not jerky. The CX-9 can go from 0 to 60 mph in eight seconds. Vented disc brakes measure 12.6 inches in front and 12.8 inches in the rear. They are a big reason why this vehicle can come to a stop from 60 mph in less than 125 feet. Safety fare includes traction and stability controls, antilock brakes, airbags in front (including sides) and overhead for three rows. The Grand Touring model also had a rearview camera, rear park sensors and a blind spot monitoring system. Anchors and tethers for child seats are provided in the two rear rows. Insulation factors were good as little road or engine noise invaded the cabin. The ride was fine with no harsh bumps or erratic rocking behavior on less than perfect roads. The suspension system relies on struts in front and multilinks in the rear. Gas shocks, coil springs and stabilizer bars front and rear are nothing out of the ordinary. Standard on the Grand Touring are P245 20-inch tires mounted on aluminum alloy wheels. Amenities include climate controls for the three rows, air conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth, CD and MP3 players, auxiliary and USB audio input, AM/FM radio with presets for satellite radio as well, grab handles, multiple beverage holders and storage bins.

FROM TOP: Leather seats are standard trim in the $36,625 Grand Touring model of the 2014 Mazda CX-9 wagon/sport utility vehicle. With the split and fold second and third rows upright, there is room for seven adults. Entry to the third row is assisted by second row split seats that fold and move forward. Warranty coverage is three years or 36,000 miles with 24-hour roadside

assistance and five years or 60,000 miles on the powertrain.

The Subaru Impreza 2.0i PZEV

Photo provided

A fight between demons, angels 2014 Subaru Impreza has a lot to offer, but needs a mute button By WARREN BROWN The Washington Post The engine whined. It sounded like a small child trying to con a parent – with a cry not quite a cry, but a persistent noise created to irritate: Wha-a-a, wha-a-a-a, wha-a-a-a-a. I wanted to shout, “Shut up!” But that would have been bad parenting. I wanted to slap it, hard. But that would have gone against everything I learned from my parents. Seeking relief, I turned on the radio in the 2014 Subaru Impreza 2.0i PZEV. But the sound coming from the

Impreza’s speakers was so static-prone and monotone – below the quality of anything in a comparable Honda, Hyundai or Kia – it reminded me of the woefully quirky sound reproduction in a 1950s Motorola car radio. Yes, I’ve lived that long, which is why I was able to overlook the Impreza’s little demons in favor of the compact car’s much larger angels. The Impreza 2.0i PZEV is a good automobile – well built, faithfully reliable and actually fun to drive – the latter quality attributable largely to Subaru’s symmetrical allwheel-drive system, which is standard on the Impreza and

most other Subaru vehicles. The all-wheel-drive system is one of the best ever, certainly on small economy cars. It is what sets the Impreza above the rest of its rivals in the compact segment. Symmetrical all-wheel drive simultaneously sends power to all four wheels. When one set of wheels slips – for example, in snow or rain – more power automatically flows to the gripping wheels. Subaru has been perfecting that system for the past 40 years, and it now works wonderfully well. The effect invites cliche. The car sticks to the road in weather fair or foul. It handles with confidence. It provides a peace of mind not undermined by the engine’s wha-a-a, wha-a-a-a. I suspect that the engine’s noise is more attributable

to Subaru’s skimping on sound-deadening materials than it is to the engine itself. It is a spunky, gasoline-fueled machine – four cylinders horizontally opposed, a “boxer” engine in automobile industry parlance. It produces 148 horsepower and 145 poundfeet of torque, delivered with enough chutzpah to get you up and down hills and pull you along mountain roads problem-free. It is mounted low enough in the engine bay to enhance the Impreza’s center of gravity, greatly helping the car’s balance on the road. And it gets a very decent, for an all-wheel-drive car, 27 miles per gallon in the city and up to 36 mpg on the highway using regular gasoline. It’s just so darned noisy, and that’s too bad. Subaru’s

competition in the small-car league is catching up quickly. South Korean automobile manufacturers Hyundai and Kia, both of which also have U.S. plants, are keen on turning their small cars into motorized jewels – eliminating such buyer disincentives as engine noise and another Subaru irritant: sturdy but dowdy vehicle interiors. I think the real problem here is Subaru’s parent company, Japan’s Fuji Heavy Industries. FHI makes a lot of things other than Subaru vehicles – attack helicopters, jet aircraft, myriad industrial products of all sorts. The company has a heavy-industry mind-set, which shows up pitifully in the interiors of too many Subaru automobiles. Here’s a hint to FHI: Check out your Japanese brethren

New 2014 RAM 1500 Quad Cab Express

at Toyota. That rival company is beginning to put color into the interiors of its cars. It is experimenting with different material textures and things such as interior ambient light. It is what you heavy-industry types might call silly stuff. But it is silly stuff that attracts buyers, which is one of the reasons Toyota outsells Subaru in the United States. It doesn’t have to be that way, FHI. Consider that you are making automobiles, not tanks. Car buyers demand comforts and something that at least approaches beauty. Subaru has the best practical cars and crossover-utility vehicles in the world. But “practical” isn’t everything. Sex sells. Check out your U.S. sales numbers and you’ll see I’m right.

The 2014 Raybestos giveaway Camaro is readied for a full Pro-Touring build at Schwartz Performance in Woodstock.

Schwartz Performance creating Raybestos 2014 giveaway car • WINTER Continued from page D1 He said it was one of the first steps taken on any car that comes into the shop. The final car I saw that will receive a complete restoration was a 1969 front-wheel-drive 472-cubic-inch V-8-powered Cadillac Eldorado. The car had just been taken in and had a cover over it in one corner of the shop. It’s always fun to check out cars that are covered up in a restoration shop. My next stop in my quest to find out what new rides are being readied for the street this year was at The Street Rod Center in Woodstock (streetrodcenter.com). Chris and Dave, the shop’s master technicians, said the shop had three projects going. First was a 1933 Ford three-window coupe they were making into a street rod. They had just done the first trial fit for the 350-cubic-inch V-8 Chevy engine. On one of the shop’s lifts, I spotted a 1956 Chevy sedan delivery in the process of having major modifications done. Chris said a Schwartz Performance

chassis had been fitted to the car, and they had completed much of the body work. Last was a 1969 Chevy Corvette convertible. Dave told me the shop was doing some engine modifications, a custom paint job and fitting a new top to this beloved American sports car. Near Street Rod Center is Schwartz Performance (www. schwartzperformance.com). The shop was very busy with many new builds going on. Dale, the son of owner Jeff Schwartz, gave me a tour of the shop. It was like going to gearhead heaven. The first car I saw, now only in the mockup stage, is a 1971 Chevy Camaro RS. What it will become is another story. It will become the Raybestos 2014 giveaway car, and anybody can enter to win when the contest opens. The car will make its debut later this year and will be at the huge 2014 SEMA show in Las Vegas in November. Check out the Schwartz Performance website for details. Another very impressive car being given the Schwartz Performance treatment was a 1952 Ford Customline twodoor post sedan. This under-

pair shop, Vintage Sports Car (www.vintagesportscar.net). While this shop can rebuild anything automotive, they are really well-known for their expertise in foreign cars. Yves Boode is a former race car driver and owner of this automotive utopia, and I had the privilege to talk to him about his shop and the outstanding work it turns out. Some of the cars being restored at the shop were sights to behold, like the 1962 Volvo 444 Rally car that was just getting the finishing touches put on it.

These cars, along with quite a few more, will be finished this year. They all are high-caliber, truly awesome future street machines. Across the road from Schwartz Performance is another fantastic automotive restoration and full-service re-

1931 Ford hot rod pickup completed in World War II theme • Continued from page D8 Things that really caught my eye were the Weber carbs, race car full instrumentation housed in a custom handmade dashboard and a full complement of hig-speed road lights affixed to the car’s front end. This classic Swedish sports sedan will compete in a Road Rally later this year in Argentina. In another area sat two 1976 English Triumph TR6 sports cars. The complete restorations were about half finished and will be done later this year. Shop super wrench Joe Kraus was just buttoning up the engine on a 1931 American Austin 7 four-cylinder engine when I walked by. He said he would be starting the engine for the first time in a few days on this outstanding complete restoration. Everywhere I looked was cool iron: a vintage early 1970s German Porsche 911, a 1962 Italian 1000cc Fiat-Abarth, ’60s-era Mini Copper “S” models and an English Lotus Seven sports racer. When I didn’t think the tour could get any better, Yves took me to another building and showed me a car I had never seen. It was an extremely rare 1957 all fiberglass bodied French (DB) Deutsch-Bonnet featuring front-wheel drive and independent suspension. It was in rough shape. It will be a challenge, said Yves, but it will be like new when they’re finished with it. Then, as if keeping the best for last, Yves took the cover off a Formula B/2 1967 Brahman BT21C race car. My jaw literally dropped. Not only was this a time capsule from the golden era of Formula race cars, this car had never been raced. The only miles driven and put into this fabulous machine’s race car log book were those driven as track test times. Negotiations still were going on with the owner on what work was to be done to this once-in-a-lifetime find. In addition to all the restorations and service work, the shop is rebuilding no less than six foreign car engines for customers. My next stop was at Don Hansen’s Muscle Plus, (815385-0724). Many in McHenry County know Don Hansen for two things: his outstanding work on all types of automotive vehicles at his Alignment and Auto service shop in McHenry and his quality build of hot rods and street machines. When I stopped in, I was really in luck. He was able to show me his first renderings and partial build sheet for his latest upcoming 2014 street missile project. The car will be a 1960 Chevy Biscayne, two-door post sedan, and he said it would be “the baddest Pro-Touring machine to hit the streets” when he’s finished with it. My last stop to high-quality collector car restorers was at Kenny Robins’ shop in Cary. Kenny’s shop is more of a private collection and a real fun place to visit because he is always building different types of rides. As I walked into the shop, I saw Ken working on some suspension parts for a car behind him. “This is one unique build,” he said of the 1937 Rolls Royce Boat Tail Speedster he is making into a street rod. There was a 331-cubic-inch early 1950’s vintage Chrylser Hemi V-8 engine with automatic transmission on a stand next to the car he will use for power – that’s what I call a different build. If this ride wasn’t slick enough, there was a land speed (as in Bonneville Salt Flats) motorcycle up on a work bench. Anything land speed is way cool with all gearheads, but when it’s powered by twin pulse jet engines, that’s kicking it up a notch. In another section of the shop sat a 1934 Plymouth five-window coupe hot rod. The car was in bare metal with a 354-cubic-inch V-8 Chrysler Hemi engine nestled in its engine compartment. It was heavily chopped, and the body was channeled over the frame rails. A full roll cage had been welded into place. It was being built with a Nostalgia Drags/Bonneville race car theme. While the car was a long way from being finished, it looked like it was going 200

mph while standing still. The final ride that was nearly finished was as sweet as they come, a 1931 Ford Hot Rod pickup. The car was built with a World War II theme. Shop craftsman Jim Unruh designed and built a wild custom chassis for it. A few of the really trick items include a lift-off metal top covered in U.S. Army olive drab-colored canvas by Danny’s Glass and Trim in Wauconda. The canvas also covered a handmade cover for the rear bed of the little truck. Kenny said when the rod is displayed at car shows and cruise nights he plans on asking World War II veterans to sign the cover. The ride has a 1932 Ford grille, old-school friction shocks and real World War II U.S. bomber seats, steering wheel, and gauges. A trusty 350-cubic-inch Chevy V-8 engine and automatic transmission puts power to a modern 8.8 inch Ford rear end. All the period-correct pinstriping and cartoon work on the car was done by Rick Bendi of West Dundee. It was one exceptionally cool hot rod.

2013 home sales up 29 percent NORTHWEST HERALD CRYSTAL LAKE – Existing home sales in McHenry County increased nearly 30 percent in 2013, although sales were flat in December and fell slightly in November. Homes sales in McHenry County were up 0.3 percent to 346 in December, compared with 345 in December 2012, according to figures released Thursday by the Illinois Association of Realtors. In November, sales fell 2.9 percent year-over-year. However, annual sales increased 28.8 percent to 4,933 through December 2013 compared with 3,831 in 2012. The median price for all homes in McHenry increased 7.9 percent to $150,000 in December, up from $139,000 in December 2012. Prices for single-family homes were up

12.9 percent to $175,000, and condo prices rose 19.5 percent to $110,500 last month. Home prices climbed 8.9 percent to $152,000 in 2013, up from $140,100 in 2012. Despite gains, home prices in the county remained well below 2008 levels. The number of homes for sale dropped 24.7 percent in December to 1,756, down from 2,332 in December 2012. Homes also spent less time on the market. The number of days on the market until sale was down 24.5 percent to 80, compared with 106 days in December 2012. In Kane County, existing sales increased 5.3 percent to 534 in December, up from 507 in December 22012. That helped Kane County sales finish 2013 with sales up 21.3 percent to 7,625, compared with 6,287 in 2012. The median sales

price in Kane County was $175,000 in December 2013, up 23.2 percent from $142,000 in December 2012.

8BUSINESS ROUNDUP Pollution board denies petcoke regulations

A diesel locomotive travels in Union Pacific’s Council Bluffs, Iowa, rail yard. The boom in natural gas production that dramatically changed the nation’s energy outlook may now be on the verge of shaking up American railroads.

Green advantage Natural gas locomotives may prove cheaper, cleaner By JOSH FUNK The Associated Press OMAHA, Neb. – The diesel-burning locomotive, the workhorse of American railroads since World War II, soon will begin burning natural gas – a potentially historic shift that could cut fuel costs, reduce pollution and strengthen the advantage railroads hold over trucks in long-haul shipping. Rail companies want to take advantage of booming natural gas production that has cut the price of the fuel by as much as 50 percent. So they are preparing to experiment with redesigned engines capable of burning both diesel and liquefied natural gas. Natural gas “may revolutionize the industry much like the transition from steam to diesel,” said Jessica Taylor, a spokeswoman for General Electric’s locomotive division, one of several companies that will test new natural gas equipment later this year. Any changes are sure to happen slowly. A full-scale shift to natural gas would require expensive new infrastructure across the nation’s 140,000-mile freight-rail system, including scores of fueling stations.

An experimental natural gas locomotive in Erie, Penn. The diesel locomotives that became freight railroads’ workhorse after World War II could be replaced in the next few years by units like this that burn a mix of natural gas and diesel. The change has been made possible by hydraulic fracturing drilling techniques, which have allowed U.S. drillers to tap into vast deposits of natural gas. The boom has created such abundance that prices dropped to an average of $3.73 per million British thermal units last year – less than

one-third of their 2008 peak. Over the past couple of years, cheap gas has inspired many utilities to turn away from coal, a move that hurt railroads’ profits. And natural gas is becoming more widely used in transportation.

Study: Climbing income ladder hasn’t grown harder By PAUL WISEMAN The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Young Americans from low-income families are as likely to move into the ranks of the affluent today as those born in the 1970s, according to a report by several top academic experts on inequality. The study, published this week by the National Bureau of Economic Research, runs counter to the widespread belief that a widening gap between rich and poor has made it harder to climb the economic ladder.

Democratic and Republican lawmakers alike have expressed alarm over what had been seen as diminishing opportunities for economic advancement through hard work and ingenuity. Instead, the study found 9 percent of children born in 1986 to the poorest 20 percent of households were likely to climb into the top 20 percent – littlechanged from 8.4 percent for such children born in 1971. “Absolutely, we were surprised” by the results, said Harvard University economist Nathaniel Hen-

dren. He is one of the report’s authors along with Harvard’s Raj Chetty, Emmanuel Saez and Patrick Kline of the University of California, Berkeley, and Nicholas Turner of the Treasury Department. Worries have been growing across the political spectrum about an expanding divide between America’s rich and the rest: The top 1 percent of Americans accounted for 22.5 percent of income earned in the U.S. in 2012. That is one of the highest figures since the Roaring ’20s and up from a low 8.9 percent in 1976, according

to a database maintained by Saez. But the fact the top 1 percent are pulling away has had little effect on the ability of those in the bottom fifth to rise to the top fifth, the study found. The findings are open to different interpretations: They could suggest government programs to help the poor have made little headway in increasing economic opportunity. Or they could suggest economic advancement would have become harder without such programs.

CHICAGO – An Illinois pollution panel has denied emergency regulations to control piles of petroleum coke. The Pollution Control Board made the decision Thursday regarding statewide regulations proposed by Gov. Pat Quinn. The board’s decision means the rules will go through the longer, regular rule-making process. Quinn says he’s responding to complaints from Chicago residents that petroleum coke piling up on the city’s Southeast Side is a health and environmental threat. Petcoke is a powdery fuel made by “cooking” residue left over after making gasoline and diesel. Quinn wants to require storage terminals to immediately install dust-suppression systems and prevent storm water runoff. He also wants companies to fully enclose the piles within two years. Industry officials say the rules would hurt Illinois businesses, and there’s no need for emergency action.

Online ads show rise in available jobs in Illinois CHICAGO – The Illinois Department of Employment Security says online advertising for jobs in Illinois was up almost 10 percent in December from a year earlier. The department said 215,000 job openings were advertised in December. That’s up by 19,000 from December 2012. The department says 92 percent of the jobs advertised last month were full time. The five most-advertised jobs were for truck drivers, registered nurses, retail sales workers, retail supervisors and marketing managers. Employment Security Director Jay Rowell called the number of online job ads a sign that employers are ready to hire if they can find the right candidates. Illinois has one of the nation’s highest unemployment rates, at 8.7 percent in November.

Weekly applications for jobless aid mostly flat WASHINGTON – The number of Americans seeking unemployment benefits ticked up 1,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 326,000, a level consistent with steady job gains. The Labor Department says the four-week average, a less volatile measure, fell for the third straight week to 331,500. Both figures are close to prerecession levels and suggest companies are laying off few workers. Still, hiring also will need to pick up to make a dent in the still-high 6.7 percent unemployment rate. Many economists forecast that job gains will pick up a bit this year.

Moving to Fuel savings could be considerable Higher mortgage rates, TRAINS affluence in •Continued prices slowed sales from page E1 U.S. harder • HOME SALES Continued from page E1 than other countries gines, and the diesel helps provide horsepower. Railroads are planning to use liquefied natural gas, which is not as readily available as other forms of gas because it must be cooled to minus 260 degrees. That step adds to the price, but the amount varies based on how the process is done. The projected cost comparisons do not include the millions of dollars railroads would have to spend on a network of natural gas fueling stations along their tracks. That expense won’t be clear until after the tests, when railroads decide whether to build their own liquefaction facilities or just store fuels. “There are a lot of factors that aren’t accounted for yet,” said Michael Iden, who oversees locomotive engineering at Union Pacific. Locomotive makers say natural-gas engines could also significantly reduce emissions compared with diesel locomotives, but the potential cost savings is the biggest reason the rail industry is eager to make the change. From the outside, natural gas locomotives will not look much different, but they will have to pull a tank car behind the en-

More than 100,000 buses, trucks and other vehicles already run on it, although that figure represents only about 3 percent of the transportation sector. The savings could be considerable. The nation’s biggest freight railroad, Union Pacific, spent more than $3.6 billion on fuel in 2012, about a quarter of total expenses. But even under the most optimistic scenario, there’s no way all of that diesel will be replaced. Railroads and locomotive makers are looking primarily at ways to retrofit existing machines to burn a mix of diesel and natural gas because that will be the quickest and easiest way to adopt the new technology. Locomotive makers have not yet set the prices of their retrofit kits, but railroads expect they will be cheaper than a new locomotive costing roughly $2 million. Using both diesel and natural gas also offers some advantages over using natural gas alone. The diesel can provide the spark needed to ignite natural gas without redesigning locomotive en-

• INCOME LADDER Continued from page E1 “My concern is that there may be less mobility in the future,” former White House economic adviser Alan Krueger said by email. The cost of a college education, for instance, is increasingly difficult for lowand middle-income families to afford. Hendren emphasizes that it’s still harder to move from poverty to affluence in the U.S. than in most other wealthy countries. In a 2012 study of 22 countries, economist Miles Corak of the University of Ottawa found that the United States ranked 15th for social mobility. Among wealthy countries. Only Italy and the Britain ranked lower. “In some sense, how could it have gotten worse?” Hendren said. “It’s not like we’re losing the American Dream. We never really had it.”

gine to carry enough liquefied natural gas, or LNG, to have a similar range to diesel units. Both of the major locomotive manufacturers, General Electric and Caterpillar’s Electro-Motive Diesel, have developed prototypes that will be tested by Union Pacific, CSX, BNSF and Canadian National railroads beginning this year. If the projected cost savings are realized, railroads would improve their profits and better compete against trucks, where they already hold the advantage on deliveries longer than 500 miles. “They can lower their costs further and widen their advantage over trucks,” Edward Jones analyst Logan Purk said. But he sounded one note of caution: Natural gas prices have always been volatile, and they could climb if gas exports expand significantly and more industries switch over to natural gas. Another issue is the design for the fuel tender cars that will haul liquefied natural gas for the locomotives. That’s something that will have to be standardized because the major freight railroads regularly pass locomotives back and forth to keep trains moving efficiently.

Nationally, sales of existing U.S. homes increased slightly in December, helping to lift sales for the year to the highest level in seven years. U.S. sales increased to an annual rate of 4.87 million units last month, up 1 percent from the November sales pace, the National Association of Realtors reported Thursday. However, both months represented a slower pace of sales than earlier in 2013, reflecting the drag from higher mortgage rates and higher home prices. For all of 2013, sales totaled 5.09 million, the best performance since 2006, when sales totaled 6.48 million. However, the sales gains in both 2005 and 2006 represented an unsustainable housing bubble. Analysts say a more normal sales pace currently would be around 5.5 million units. The median price of an existing home rose 11.5 percent last year to $197,100, the highest in eight years. “We lost some momentum toward the end of 2013 from disappointing job growth and limited inventory, but we ended with a year that was close

to normal given the size of our population,” said Lawrence Yun, chief economist for the Realtors. Yun is forecasting sales will remain around the 2013 level of 5.09 million in 2014 as such factors as tighter mortgage lending standards and limited inventories impede further progress in the housing market. Total housing inventory at the end of December was down 9.3 percent to 1.86 million existing homes available for sale. That represents a 4.6 month supply at the December sales pace. Over the summer, re-sales reached a pace of 5.39 million, the fastest in four years. Sales began to slow in September as the costs of buying a home rose. Mortgage rates rose to nearly a full percentage point higher than they were in the spring, when they were at record lows. And a limited supply of homes on the market helped drive up prices. The combination of rising mortgage rates and rising prices made home buying less affordable, particularly for first-time buyers.

By PHILLIP ALDER Newspaper Enterprise Association

Here are the answers to the irst two questions in my Christmas Competition. 1. How should South plan the play in six clubs after West leads a trump and East follows suit? South should inish drawing trumps, cash the heart ace, play a diamond to dummy’s queen, ruff the heart jack in his hand, and lead another diamond to the dummy. If the diamonds split 3-2, declarer is playing for an overtrick by taking two spade inesses. So, let’s assume diamonds are 4-1. If East has four diamonds, South cashes the last high diamond, then gives East the lead in diamonds. Now if East has the spade king, he is endplayed. If he leads away from that king, declarer runs the trick around to dummy’s queen, then plays a spade to his jack. (If East does not have the spade king, the contract has no chance.) Alternatively, as in the diagram, if West started with four diamonds, South should now lead the spade queen from the board. If the inesse

loses, again the contract was unmakable. So let’s have East cover the queen with his king. Declarer wins with his ace and exits with his last diamond to endplay West, who must either lead around into South’s jack-nine of spades or concede a ruff-and-sluff. 2. Suggest an uncontested auction to six clubs. This is tough. It is much easier to end in six diamonds, which makes with this distribution. I accepted anything reasonable. The winners will be given in the column of March 22.

CROSSWORD

HOROSCOPE

! !

TODAY - As long as you are confident in your abilities, nothing and no one will be able to hold you back this year. Others may not be able to keep up with you, but your resolve will allow you to prosper in many areas of your life. Positive relationships will enable you to outmaneuver the competition. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You may not feel like working, but doing so will keep you out of trouble on a personal level, and you will manage to make progress professionally as well. If you feel restless, examine your options. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- It’s a good idea to be as active as possible today. Meet up with informed and likeminded people. Travel will lead to a creative opportunity. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You will likely have to face an older relative’s difficulties. It’s an opportune time to check out real estate or other long-term investments. Financial opportunities are likely to manifest. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A partnership can improve your life, but don’t let your fears or your stubbornness get in the way. Love should be your focus. If you are coy or distracted, your partner will not be pleased. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Find an opportunity to get closer to a colleague or superior. You can gain ground if you form alliances, but be careful whom you choose. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- This is a great day for love and romance. Do something thoughtful for your special someone. You can also meet potential partners through a trip or by attending events. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don’t take any personal or professional chances today. Changes are inevitable, so prepare to accept them and move on with grace. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Your pragmatic but tactful approach will help you get along with everyone, and that will make it easy to ask for assistance. Finding solutions to practical concerns will be simple. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Life can change in an instant, and sometimes all you can do is just try your best. Professional and financial gains are likely, so if you have a chance to apply for a better position, seize it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You will be emotional, and self-control will be an issue. Less talk and more positive action are what is needed. You will meet someone appealing. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You may find yourself stressed by a deadline if you are trying to complete paperwork before the weekend officially begins. Be persistent, and the concerned parties will comply. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Your confident approach to finding solutions will be irresistible today. You can form alliances and persuade others to support your plans.
