Marion Berntsen gathers her belongings Friday morning after a judge ordered her to move out of Anja Hertel’s home in McHenry. The two are embroiled in a legal battle in which Berntsen, a 73-year-old woman, says her landlord stole items from her, including personal mementos. Last week, a judge gave Berntsen a week to move out.

Woman leaves house without incident; cleanup underway By JOSEPH BUSTOS McHENRY – Before a sheriff’s deputy arrived Friday morning, Marion Berntsen was bundled up waiting for someone to pick her up at the end of Anja Hertel’s driveway. Berntsen had bags of her remaining belongings with her, a day after most of her stuff had been moved out. The so-called sovereign citizen had left the property

peacefully before the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office came to assist in her eviction. When asked where she planned to go, the 73-year-old Berntsen mumbled incoherently, but said she would be going to court. A Pace bus briefly stopped in front of the house, but it wouldn’t allow Berntsen to board. Eventually, an unidentified

WOODSTOCK – In sentencing a man to 40 years in prison for the beating death of his girlfriend, a McHenry County judge Friday called it “one of the worst cases of domestic violence” she’d ever seen. A jury in November found 45-year-old Robert Signorile guilty of first-degree murder for the death of Michelle Mathieu. It took jurors 90 minutes to convict him of the crime. Medical crews responded March 18, 2012, to the couple’s Sun City, Huntley, home where they found Mathieu, 52, unconscious and face down in vomit. She died after languishing six days in a coma. Autopsy photos showed the woman was covered in bruises, and medical testimony revealed she had fractured ribs and spine and a head trauma that ultimately killed her. Standing before Judge Sharon Prather on Friday, Signorile maintained that he had nothing to do with the crime. “I love Michelle more than anybody in this whole courtroom,” he said. “I did not do this crime like they say I did, and I’ll fight till the day I die to prove my innocence.” Cellphone videos retrieved from Signorile’s phone and shown during trial were

Robert Signorile, 45, of Huntley, was guilty of first-degree murder for the death of his girlfriend, Michelle Mathieu, in March 2012. He was sentenced Friday to 40 years in prison.

Birds of a feather eat at my house together Recently, when the temperature was way south of zero, I was sitting in my nice, warm dining room eating my nice, hot bowl of oatmeal. In late fall we had strategically placed our bird feeder station so we could sit at the table and watch all the action. You know, the finches happily flitting in the air from feeder to feeder, the doves doggedly scooping up the fallen seeds on the ground, and the kamikaze squirrels flinging themselves from the trees at anything edible. On a morning that had already hit minus 11, I figured it would be all quiet on the feathered front. Not. There they were on this ridiculously cold day, all our furry and plumy thespians on stage as usual, ready for another episode of “Suet Yourself.” I guess the birds know a good thing when they see it. My wife faithfully refills their feeders daily. In fact, the other day I went with her to the store to replenish our supplies. I couldn’t believe the variety of seeds that we provided: thistle, sunflower, finch, millet, songbird mix … it was like


JUST HUMOR ME Michael Penkava I have an Old Birdy Buffet in my backyard. As she was stacking the bags into my arms, I noticed the price tags. “Geesh, honey, we’re spending a lot of money on those birds.” “I know, but they are like you … once I start feeding them, I can’t stop because they depend on me for their food. You wouldn’t want me to stop cooking for you, would you?” Speechless and reduced to the status of a dark-eyed male junco, I just silently stood there as she piled the bags of seed into my waiting arms. Thirty-some dollars later we were out the door and on our way home. As part of our winter bird sanctuary, we also provide an unfrozen water source for our beaked consumers. Besides providing hydration, bathing provides the birds with opportunities for preening, which aligns feathers

for optimized insulation against the cold. In other words, they also need an outdoor heated spa. Thus, enter the Allied Precision Deluxe 250-watt Bird Bath Heater and De-Icer. Not to worry, this unit provides multiple thermostatic sensors so the water maintains a comfortable avian temperature. It’s also Teflon-coated to reduce mineral buildup. It has so many bells and whistles I’m surprised Michael Bolton isn’t singing about it. Now, I’m not begrudging providing Mr. Sparrow and Associates with what they need to survive the winter. Sure, it’s an added expense. And if it fits in the budget, so be it. I just get jealous when my wife rejects my box of Twinkies from the shopping cart because of their fat content but she’s happy to give those guys a wad of lard called suet. And as for the kamikaze squirrels, I figure if they’re up for extreme feeder-jumping, then let nature take its course. We see them on the ground eating side by side with the birds and they all get along fine. Maybe it’s we

humans that have the problem. We put out free food and then we’re indignant when hungry animals show up. That’s like inviting all the relatives over for dinner and then being upset when your mother-in-law shows up. (Sorry, bad comparison on many levels) So welcome, all you winged and fleet-footed creatures. There’s plenty of food for all and we change the spa water daily. You goldfinches, we’ll be putting out some purple coneflowers soon. Cardinals, look for some safflower seeds. Flickers, get ready for some peanuts. And you squirrels, save some food for the birds or I’ll make you listen to Michael Bolton Honda commercial songs.

Judge: Remove life support for pregnant woman The ASSOCIATED PRESS FORT WORTH, Texas – A judge on Friday ordered a Texas hospital to remove life support for a pregnant, brain-dead woman whose family had argued that she would not want to be kept in that condition. Judge R. H. Wallace Jr. issued the ruling in the case of Marlise Munoz. John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth has been keeping Munoz on life support against her family’s wishes. The judge gave the

But the hospital had not pronounced her dead and continues to treat her over the objections of both Erick Munoz and her parents, who sat together in court Friday. “Mrs. Munoz is dead,” Wallace said in issuing his ruling, adding that meant the hospital was misapplying a state law that prohibits the removal of life-sustaining treatment from a pregnant patient. Larry Thompson, a state’s attorney representing the pub-

But Jessica Hall Janicek and Heather King, Erick Munoz’s attorneys, accused the hospital of conducting a “science experiment” and warned of the dangerous precedent her case could set, raising the specter of special ICUs for braindead women carrying babies.

At scene of Ind. pileup, mangled metal, screams Chicago man 1 of 3 killed in crash The ASSOCIATED PRESS MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. – Cars were mangled, and some were burned despite the blowing snow. Other vehicles were crushed between jackknifed semitractors, so entwined that it was difficult to tell them apart. People were screaming, but emergency responders couldn’t see many of them as they quickly tended the victims amid frigid conditions. Within seconds, traffic along snow-covered Interstate 94 in northern Indiana had become a mile-long pile of debris after whiteout conditions swept in during Thursday’s evening commute. Three people were killed and nearly two dozen were injured.

“It was such a devastating scene, you don’t know where to start,” said Coolspring Township Fire Chief Mick Pawlik, whose crew was among the first on the scene 60 miles south of Chicago. “There were people in cars that you couldn’t even see,” Pawlik said during a news conference Friday. “But when people are stuck in their cars, they look at you like we’re Moses. ‘Part the water. Save us.’” Rescue crews quickly set about prioritizing the victims. Who needed help first? And who was beyond help? Firefighters worked quickly to keep the victims warm while they extricated them. Just as importantly, Pawlik tried to take their minds off what had happened – though the dead weighed on his and other first responders’ minds. “Those are the worst,” Pawlik said. “You sit there – they’re the last ones to get out

8STATE BRIEFS Supreme Court: Damaged school suit came too late CHICAGO – A southern Illinois school district can’t sue an architectural firm for building a school on an underground coal mine that later collapsed, the Illinois Supreme Court ruled Friday. In a 7-0 decision, the court ruled that the Gillespie Community school district’s claim of “fraudulent misrepresentation” against Wight and Company was barred by a five-year statute of limitations. In 1998, the Gillespie Community school district began construction plans for new elementary school in Benld, about 50 miles northeast of St. Louis. Engineers noted there was the possibility of the collapse of an underground mine on the campus site, but school officials said in their suit that proper risks never were detailed and proceeded with building.

GOP urges congressional candidate to withdraw ARLINGTON HEIGHTS – Illinois Republican officials are calling for a Chicago-area congressional candidate to leave the GOP race after she blamed bad weather on legalized abortions and gay rights, but Susanne Atanus said she won’t back down. Jack Dorgan, chairman of the Illinois Republican Party, said the 55-year-old’s comments to the (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald’s editorial board were “offensive.” Adam Robinson, chairman of the Chicago Republican Party, also distanced himself from her. “Atanus is not in any way affiliated with any of our efforts in the Chicago GOP, nor have we ever supported, endorsed, or assisted her in any way at any time,” Robinson said in a statement. Atanus, of Niles, is running against David Earl Williams III in the March primary for the 9th Congressional District.

Emanuel wants single Chicago bid for library CHICAGO – Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has said he wants the city to submit a unified bid for President Barack Obama’s presidential library. “It is important for the city to have the president’s library in his hometown, and we will

be very competitive in our proposal, and we have put a lot of thought into it,” Emanuel, who is Obama’s former chief of staff, told the Chicago Sun-Times. The University of Illinois at Chicago, the University of Chicago and Chicago State University have all expressed interest in being home to the library. So has a group from Chicago’s Bronzeville neighborhood that’s promoting a lakefront site at a now-closed hospital. The University of Hawaii is vying for the site and the newspaper reports Columbia University in New York is also interested.

State Board of Ed. wants $1 billion more in 2015 SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois State Board of Education wants lawmakers to approve an extra $1 billion for schools next year. The state board on Thursday approved a budget request it will send to lawmakers and the governor that asks for education to represent one third of the total state budget. Board Chairman Gery Chico says students shouldn’t be shortchanged any more. Schools across the state have seen nearly $800 million in cuts since 2009. Budget negotiations officially begin in February with Gov. Pat Quinn’s budget address. Negotiations are expected to be tense because of the pending expiration in January 2015 of the state’s temporary income tax increase from 3 to 5 percent.

Lawmakers eye national park status for Pullman CHICAGO – Members of Illinois’ congressional delegation announced Friday they will sponsor legislation that would create a national park in Chicago’s historic Pullman neighborhood. U.S. Sens. Dick Durbin and Mark Kirk, along with U.S. Rep. Robin Kelly, announced their plans in the neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side. Kirk and Durbin said they plan to introduce legislation to Congress next week. Pullman is part of Kelly’s congressional district. Industrialist George Pullman founded what was then a separate town in 1880. The neighborhood also was the birthplace of the African-American labor movement.

but you know they’re there.” The chain-reaction collision near Michigan City was triggered by a sudden burst of heavy snow that took drivers by surprise, said Indiana State Police Lt. Jerry Williams. Within about 45 seconds, dozens of vehicles – including numerous trucks – were crashing into one another. The accident killed Chicago resident Jerry Dalrymple, 65, and a Michigan couple: Thomas Wolma, 67, and his 65-year-old wife, Marilyn, of Grand Rapids. More than 20 people were injured, including one who remained in critical condition Friday. Pawlik said the scene was “something that you’ll never forget. It’ll live with us forever.” But he acknowledged that first responders were expecting worse. “We’re lucky that there wasn’t 20 people dead and three people injured,” he said.

Ex-Va. gov., wife plead not guilty The ASSOCIATED PRESS

Trader Gregory Rowe (center) works Friday on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. Global markets were down Friday, pushed lower by fears that growth in China is slowing and that reduced Federal Reserve bond buying will hurt many emerging countries.

Fears weigh on global markets U.S. indexes fall; bond prices rise By JOSHUA FREED and PAUL WISEMAN The Associated Press Fear is back in the market. Investors are worried about slower economic growth in China, a gloomier outlook for U.S. corporate profits and an end to easy-money policies in the United States and Europe. They’re also fretting over country-specific troubles around the world – from economic mismanagement in Argentina to political instability in Turkey. Those fears converged this week to start a two-day rout in global markets that was capped by a 318-point drop in the Dow Jones industrial average Friday. It was the bluechip index’s worst day since last June. The Dow plunged almost 500 points over the two days.

The Dow finished down 2 percent at 15,879 Friday. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 38 points, or 2.1 percent, to 1,790. The Nasdaq composite fell 90 points, or 2.2 percent, to 4,128. As investors shunned risk, small-company stocks fell even more than the rest of the market, and bond prices rose. Despite the sell-off, U.S. stocks remain near all-time highs after surging 30 percent last year. The S&P 500 is 3 percent below its record high of 1,848 on Jan. 15. U.S. stocks have not endured a correction – a drop of 10 percent or more over time – since October 2011. The turbulence coincides with a global economic shift: China and other emerging-market economies appear to be running into trouble just as the developed economies of the United States and Europe finally show signs of renewed strength nearly five years after the end of the Great Recession. The trouble began Thurs-

At a glance The Dow finished down 2 percent at 15,879 Friday. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index fell 38 points, or 2.1 percent, to 1,790. The Nasdaq composite fell 90 points, or 2.2 percent, to 4,128.

day after a January survey showed a drop in Chinese manufacturing activity. Days earlier, China reported that its economic growth last year matched 2012 for the slowest pace since 1999. “It is interesting how even a mild tremor in China’s growth causes such anxiety around the world,” said Eswar Prasad, professor of trade policy at Cornell University. In Asia, Japan’s Nikkei 225 slipped 1.9 percent Friday to close at 15,391.56; Hong Kong’s Hang Seng shed 1.2 percent to 22,450.06; and Seoul’s Kospi dropped 0.4 percent to 1,940.56. Slower growth in China is bad news for countries that

supply oil, iron ore and other raw materials to the world’s second-biggest economy. Some of those countries, such as Indonesia and South Africa, were already struggling with an outflow of capital as rising U.S. interest rates drew investors to the United States. Since the global financial crisis hit in 2008, the Federal Reserve has flooded markets with cash to push interest rates lower and encourage U.S. businesses and consumers to borrow and spend. But last month, as signs of growing economic strength emerged in the U.S., the Fed cut back – reducing its monthly bond purchases to $75 billion from $85 billion. It also said that it expected to reduce the bond-buying further “in measured steps” at upcoming meetings. The Fed meets again Tuesday and Wednesday. Many economists expect the central bank to cut the purchases again – perhaps to $65 billion a month.

RICHMOND, Va. – Former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife pleaded not guilty Friday to federal charges that they traded their influence for tens of thousands of dollars in gifts and loans, and both will remain free until their trial. “It’s ‘not guilty,’ your honor,” McDonnell said when asked his plea. U.S. District Court Judge James R. Spencer set a July 28 start for a jury trial. The proceedings are expected to last five to six weeks. An hour before pleading not guilty, the McDonnells were released on their own recognizance Friday but were ordered by U.S. Magistrate Judge David Novak not to leave the country. The former governor’s lawyer, John Brownlee, told Novak the defendants already have surrendered their passports. The McDonnells were indicted on 14 counts Tuesday after a lengthy federal investigation of his relationship with a former CEO of a dietary supplement maker Both judges issued strong warnings against leaking sensitive information to the

media. Much of the details of the government’s case against McDonnell had long been made public through months of news stories based on anonymous sources “This case is going to be tried in the courtroom; it is not going to be tried in the media,” Novak said. “The gamesmanship with the media ends now.” Bob and Maureen McDonnell often held hands as they made their way through the courthouse. Both hearings were packed with family, supporters and the media. Supporters include prominent Republican lawmakers, like House Speaker William J. Howell and House Majority Leader Kirk Cox. At the arraignment, Maureen McDonnell said she was currently taking prescription medication for “concentration and anxiety.” Federal prosecutors allege the McDonnells accepted more than $165,000 worth of loans and gifts from Jonnie Williams, the former head of Star Scientific Inc. Prosecutors say that in return, the McDonnells improperly helped Williams promote his company’s products.

President Barack Obama gestures while delivering his Jan. 24, 2012, State of the Union address on Capitol Hill in Washington.

State of Union a speech its writers love to hate For Obama’s State of the Union, Favreau had a “payas-you-go” policy: For every word someone wanted to add to a draft, they had to find something else to cut. He said Obama gives the speechwriting team plenty of leeway by saying, “We’re not going to do this just because someone random said that they need to get it in.” But if someone won’t back down, the dispute may go up the chain of command to Obama. With the final 72 hours of back-and-forth before the speech typically the most frantic time, Keenan’s White House colleagues are helping him gird for the final stretch. One made him energy cookies and another gave him an industrial-sized Keurig machine that is said to sound like a jackhammer when coffee’s brewing. Obama, like presidents past, starts each year vowing to keep the speech from turning into a laundry list. He’s big on finding an organizing theme, such as “Built to Last” in 2012 or “Winning the Future” in 2011. But every president inevitably succumbs to the pressure to cover many bases, lest he be criticized for slighting something important.

8WORLD BRIEF Both sides in Syrian talks to meet in ‘same room’ GENEVA – Bending to intense international pressure, Syria’s government and the Western-backed opposition agreed Friday to face each other for the first time since the start of the uprising against President Bashar Assad. After three days of hostile rhetoric and five hours spent assiduously avoiding contact within the United Nations, the two sides will meet “in

radical groups while in power, denies the claim, saying the government is using it to justify its drive to eliminate it as a rival. The crackdown has expanded to silence other forms of dissent, with arrests of secular activists critical of the military, security forces and the new administration. For activists, that has raised deep concerns over a return of a police state despite the government’s promises of democracy. But among a broad swath of the public, those concerns are eclipsed by fear of the wave of militant bombings and shootings since the coup, which have largely targeted police but increasingly hit in public areas taking civilian casualties. And the public fury has been funneled at the Brotherhood: After Friday’s bombings, TV stations aired telephone calls from viewers pleading with army chief Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi to definitively crush the group. “Execution for Morsi and his leaders!” one man shouted through a megaphone as an angry crowd gathered outside the Cairo security headquarters, hit in Friday’s first bombing.

the same room,” said the U.N. mediator trying to forge an end to the civil war that has left 130,000 people dead since 2011. Mediator Lakhdar Brahimi met separately with Assad’s delegation and representatives with the Syrian National Coalition, who arrived at the U.N. European headquarters five hours apart to ensure their paths would not cross. “We never expected it to be easy and I’m sure it’s not going to be, but I think the two parties

understand what’s at stake,” Brahimi said. “Their country is in very, very bad shape.” Brahimi, a famously patient mediator, is credited with efforts to stabilize Iraq and Afghanistan after the U.S. ousted their governments. But he faces a formidable task to build peace in Syria, which has been flooded with al-Qaida-inspired militants. The conflict has become a proxy war between regional powers Iran and Saudi Arabia.

WASHINGTON – When President Barack Obama stands before Congress and the nation Tuesday night, there will be little hint of the cram-it-in, chop-it-out, pleaseadd-it-back dynamic that went into the making of his State of the Union address. In the days and weeks before every State of the Union, Cabinet members, policy advocates and others suddenly find reasons to visit the speechwriting team’s modest outpost in the White House basement, hoping for that all-important mention in the biggest presidential speech of the year. “Nobody wants to get left out,” said Bruce Reed, a veteran of both the Obama and Clinton White Houses who recently left government. It’s one reason the State of the Union is the address that presidential speechwriters love to hate. One of George W. Bush’s speechwriters once called this final stretch the “seven-day death march.” “It’s not a nice, neat process, I can tell you that,” said Jon Favreau, who led Obama’s speechwriting team for more than four years. This year, with just days

left before the big speech, Obama’s chief speechwriter, Cody Keenan, already has gotten plenty of helpful (and notso-helpful) advice. He’s sat through face-to-face meetings with nearly every Cabinet member and given all of them his email address. “For that, he is saintly,” Favreau said. Piety’s nice. But the ability to say no is essential. For every sentence that’s in the speech, there are a dozen pages that won’t make the cut, said Bill McGurn, Bush’s chief speechwriter for three years. “This is the opportunity for every apparatchik in government to have their pet cause or the issue they’re working on promoted by the president on national TV,” he said. “They get disappointed if they only get a sentence, but it’s better than not getting a sentence.” Bush himself was wary of the dreaded “cram-in” – a sentence that just seemed to stick out because someone insisted on a mention of this or that. “I used to joke that I was installing a round keyboard in my office so everyone could type at once,” said Michael Waldman, President Bill Clinton’s chief speechwriter from 1995 to 1999.


By NANCY BENAC The Associated Press

CAIRO – A truck bomb struck the main security headquarters in Cairo on Friday, one of a string of bombings targeting police within a 10-hour period, killing six people. The most significant attack yet in the Egyptian capital fueled a furious backlash against the Muslim Brotherhood amid rising fears of a militant insurgency. The mayhem on the eve of the third anniversary of Egypt’s once-hopeful revolution pointed to the dangerous slide Egypt has taken since last summer’s military ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi: A mounting confrontation between the military-backed government and Islamist opponents amid the escalating violence. In the hours after the blast, angry residents – some chanting for the “execution” of Brotherhood members – joined police in clashes with the group’s supporters hold-

ing their daily street protests against the government. Smoke rose over Cairo from fires, and fighting around the country left 14 more people dead. Saturday, the anniversary of the start of the 18-day uprising that ousted autocrat Hosni Mubarak, raised the potential for new violence, as both military supporters and the Islamists vowed to take to the streets with rival rallies. After Friday’s blasts, interim President Adli Mansour vowed to “uproot terrorism,” just as the government crushed a militant insurgency in the 1990s. The state “will not show them pity or mercy,” he said. “We ... will not hesitate to take the necessary measures.” That could spell an escalation in the crackdown that the government has waged against Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood since his July 3 ouster. Thousands of Islamists have already been arrested and hundreds killed, with authorities accusing the group of being behind militant violence. The Brotherhood, which allied with some

8 confirmed dead in Quebec fire, about 30 missing The ASSOCIATED PRESS

A police investigator signals to colleagues as they search through icy rubble Friday trying to locate more victims of a fire that destroyed a senior living residence in L’Isle-Verte, Quebec.

Israel warns of growing jihadi threat from Syria TEL AVIV, Israel – A sharp increase in the number of al-Qaida linked fighters joining the fight against President Bashar Assad in Syria is threatening to spill over the borders and prompting the Jewish state to re-evaluate its policy of neutrality in the civil war next door, a senior Israeli intelligence official warned on Friday. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because military regulations prevent him from releasing the information, claimed more than 30,000 al-Qaida linked fighters are active in Syria, a huge increase over previous Western estimates. He did not disclose how Israel reached the figure, only defining the fighters as believers in “global jihad,” which he said meant a mix of those linked to al-Qaida or inspired by the terror network.

Mexico City bets on tap water law to shift habits MEXICO CITY – “Drink the water.” It’s a suggestion alien to Mexico City residents who have long shunned tap water in favor of the bottled kind and to the throngs of tourists who visit the city each year, bringing with them fears of “Montezuma’s Revenge.” But a law recently approved by Mexico City’s legislators will require all restaurants to install filters so they can offer patrons free, drinkable water that won’t lead to stomach problems and other ailments. “We need to create a culture of water consumption,” said Dr. Jose Armando Ahued, health secretary for Mexico City. “We need to accept our water.” Bad water accounts in part for Mexico being the world’s top consumer of bottled water and – worse – soda, some 43 gallons per person a year.

hurled firebombs, rocks and fireworks at officers. Riot police responded with tear gas and several dozen protesters were rushed to a makeshift medical triage area to be treated. “We will force the authorities to respect us,” 27-year-old protester Artur Kapelan said. “Not they, but we will dictate the conditions of a truce.” The fighting had stopped earlier this week as opposition leaders entered into face-to-face talks with Yanukovych. But hundreds of demonstrators in ski masks and helmets were still armed with sticks, stones and firebombs at the Kiev barricades. After nearly two months of ignoring mass demonstrations calling for his ouster,

The ASSOCIATED PRESS KIEV, Ukraine – As riots spread from Ukraine’s embattled capital to nearly half of the country, President Viktor Yanukovych promised Friday to reshuffle his government and make other concessions – but a top opposition leader said nothing short of his resignation would do. Hours after the president’s comments, huge fireballs lit up the night sky in central Kiev and plumes of thick black smoke rose from burning tires at giant barricades erected by protesters. Clashes resumed at the barricades, which are just yards from lines of riot police and also made up of bags of ice and scraps of furniture. Angry demonstrators

vowed that, at a special parliament meeting on Tuesday, he would push through changes to his Cabinet, grant amnesty to dozens of jailed activists and amend harsh anti-protest legislation. But Vitali Klitschko, an opposition leader who is a former world heavyweight boxing champion, declared the only way to end the street protests – known as the Maidan after the central Kiev square occupied by demonstrators – is for Yanukovych to resign. “Just a month ago, the Maidan would have gone home,” Klitschko told reporters Friday night, according to the Interfax news agency. “Today, people are demanding the president’s resignation.”


Swastika at Austrian grave defies official ban GRAZ, Austria – The marble tombstone looks like others dotting the main cemetery of Graz, Austria’s second city – but only at first glance. Carved into it are a swastika and the inscription: “He died in the struggle for a Great Germany.” Footsteps away, another gravestone is marked with the SS lightning bolts proudly worn by elite Nazi troops. Austrian law bans such symbols, and those displaying them face criminal charges and potential prison terms. Yet the emblems reflecting this country’s darkest chapter in history endure here, and officials appear either unable or unwilling to do away with them – despite complaints from locals. While acknowledging the Graz mayor’s office was uncomfortable with the swastika, the city’s spokesman, Thomas Rajakovics, called it an old “symbol in the English world that stands for the sun.”

bodies. Quebec Provincial Police Lt. Guy Lapointe said exhausted investigators would suspend the search overnight and resume Saturday morning. He said authorities decided to give the search crew a break from the brutal cold and the difficult work. The work is specialized, and there is a limited number of people who can be assigned to the task, he said. Agnes Fraser’s 82-year-old brother, Claude, was among the missing. She said she knew she would never see him again because he lived in the section of the building destroyed by the flames. “It’s done,” Fraser said. Quebec Minister of Social Services Veronique Hivon said the home was up to code and had a proper evacuation plan.

Ukraine clashes resume, fires light up night sky



L’ISLE-VERTE, Quebec – Using steam to melt the ice, investigators searched the frozen-over ruins of a retirement home Friday for victims of a fire that left at least eight people dead and about 30 missing. The tragedy cast such a pall over the village of 1,500 that psychologists were sent door to door. “It’s absolute desolation,” Mayor Ursule Theriault said. The cause of the blaze that swept through the three-story building early Thursday was under investigation, and police asked the public for any videos or photos that might yield clues. Witnesses told horrific tales of people trapped and killed by the flames. Many of the 50 or so residents were over 85 and used wheelchairs

or walkers. Some had Alzheimer’s. Pascal Fillion, who lives nearby, said he saw someone use a ladder to try to rescue a man cornered on his thirdfloor balcony. The man was crying out for help before he fell to the ground, engulfed in flames, Fillion said. The spray from firefighters’ hoses left the senior citizens home resembling a macabre snow palace, the ruins encased in thick white ice dripping with icicles. Search teams of police, firefighters and coroners slowly and methodically picked their way through, working in shifts in the extreme cold about 140 miles northeast of Quebec City. The afternoon temperature was around 3 degrees. The confirmed number of dead climbed to eight with the discovery of three more

In the clips, Signorile’s heard asking Mathieu how she got bruised, to which she responded “because you beat the s--t outta me.” A picture taken hours before help arrived depicted Mathieu in the same position in which first responders found her.

They pointed to agencies such as Turning Point of McHenry County. “I caught every word [of what the judge said],” Mathieu’s brother, Charles, said outside the courtroom. “She didn’t minimize what Michelle meant and what he took away from her.” Added Kuhn: “Her self-esteem. Her spirit.” During trial, Signorile’s public defenders argued that

“Michelle might be here today had Robert Signorile not left her on the floor dying more and more, minute by minute,” said her sister, Marina Kuhn, reading from a letter. Assistant State’s Attorney Patrick Kenneally said that Signorile had “dismantled another human emotionally, spiritually, physically.” “He took a person and humiliated them, tortured them, beat them … until she was dead,” he said. Mathieu’s family hoped

Mathieu was an alcoholic and that her injuries were the result of a seizures and falls. Kenneally called it a “comically bad defense.” “It’s evident that alcohol did play a negative role in his life and put him in the position that he’s in today,” Assistant Public Defender Angelo Mourelatos said. Signorile will be in his 80s by the time he’s released from prison. He previously rejected the state’s offer of 25 years. He’s already filed an appeal.

Landlord regrets informal tenant agreement McHenry County sheriff’s deputies talk with Marion Berntsen in the driveway of Anja Hertel’s McHenry home on Friday. Hertel filed a petition to evict Berntsen after she accused Hertel of stealing her belongings and filed a lawsuit claiming $15,000 in damages for stolen items.

• TENANT Continued from page A1 man picked up Berntsen and her remaining belongings and left Hertel’s house. Friday morning’s departure ended Berntsen’s stay at Hertel’s house, where she had rented a room since August. Inside, after the sheriff’s office obtained the key to Berntsen’s room, an inspection revealed stained carpets, garbage, bugs and a stench that forced people to quickly leave the vacant room. There have been fruit flies in the house constantly, Hertel said. “Oh my. What did she do?” Hertel said after the door opened. “It’s all coming out,” Hertel later added. She said she planned to change the locks to her house Friday afternoon. Hertel filed a petition to evict Berntsen after Berntsen had 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. In addition to a retainer fee of $4,000 for an attorney, Hertel also has racked up other costs, missing work to at-

Looking back, Hertel wishes she had checked references, had an application and asked for a driver’s license. “She said she was a Christian, and I was thinking ‘I could be a friend to her, and she could be a friend to me,’ ” Hertel said. “She was nothing of anything that she said.” Hertel said she had a verbal agreement with Berntsen.

• GAMBLING Continued from page A1 and O’Hare and Midway international airports. It’s unclear if any changes will be made to the legislation. But supporters say it could generate between $400 million and $1 billion annually. The measure would put the bulk of revenue from brick-and-mortar gambling toward school funding. Brady, Dillard, state Treasurer Dan Rutherford and businessman Bruce Rauner are seeking the GOP nomination in the March primary. Rutherford, of Chenoa, said that in general, he doesn’t support expansion of gambling “simply to raise more state revenue.” “If a gaming expansion bill was to be presented with proper regulation and sufficient oversight, I would be willing to entertain a discussion,” he said. Rutherford also said decisions about how to spend gambling revenue “should be part of a broader discussion of revenues and expenditures as we seek to return to fiscal stability.” Rauner stated in his questionnaire, and again during a debate in Peoria this week, that local communities should drive the decisions about where to add casinos. “I don’t gamble. I don’t like gambling,” the political newcomer from Winnetka said during the debate. “I believe casinos and gambling is here. We should allow our local governments to decide for themselves.” In the AP questionnaire, Rauner said any new gambling revenue should be invested in “the state’s top three priorities: education, infrastructure and lowering the tax burden.” Dillard, of Hinsdale, said

he supports “limited casino expansion” to relieve state finances if it’s approved locally. He said he opposed a 2009 video gambling law, but supports slot machines at race tracks because the increased revenue would also help Illinois’ agriculture industry, which receives “a significant amount” of its revenues from horse racing. “Revenue derived from gambling should be used first to balance the budget, and if revenue allows, for school funding, agriculture assistance, mental health and other funding priorities,” he said. Brady took the most hard line position on the issue, saying he has “consistently opposed the expansion of gambling for both societal and budgetary reasons.” “With limited entertainment dollars among our citizens, gaming is neither a financially reliable source of revenue nor a proper funding mechanism for the state of Illinois,” Brady stated. However, the Bloomington lawmaker has voted “present” on gambling legislation over the past few years because he has an ownership interest in a hotel in Danville, one of the communities where the current proposal calls for a casino to be located. Campaign spokesman Dan Egler said Friday that Brady has wanted to avoid any possible conflict of interest because he could benefit financially from a Danville site. Brady also said any gambling legislation “must include a long-term solution to the ongoing challenges that our legal casinos have presented to the viability of our horse racing industry,” which he said supports some 37,000 agribusiness-related jobs statewide.

“Just don’t be really trusting,” Hertel said. “I’m a trusting person, and that’s changed.” She said that if people rent out rooms in their house, they should know the person, whether a friend of someone they know, or have the tenant have a recommendation. Having a short tryout period before signing a lease also would be a good idea, she said. Friends of Hertel arrived shorty after Berntsen left to help clean the 15-foot-by-25foot room, with a closet and bathroom. “I’m really glad this part’s over,” Hertel said.

More than ready for springtime The Northwest Herald Editorial Board offers this week’s thumbs up and thumbs down: Thumbs down: To Mother Nature, for giving us one of the worst winters in years, and it’s not even February yet. When winter ends, it could be turn out to be one of the coldest seasons in a century. We’ve already experienced several days of below-zero temperatures, and more are on the way early next week. The National Weather Service’s forecast for Monday shows a high of minus-3 and a low of minus-19. Tuesday’s high is forecast to be minus-4, with a low of minus-12. Throw in all of the snow, and we’re ready for spring. Thumbs up: To McHenry’s Corkscrew Pointe, the Polish Legion of American Veterans’ ladies auxiliary and anyone involved in Sunday’s fundraiser to help the 27 people displaced by the Jan. 12 fire at the downtown McHenry apartment building known as the Riverside Hotel. The fundraiser, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the wine shop at 1402 Riverside Drive, is particularly timely since the McHenry County Housing Authority is running out of money to continue housing residents in area motels. There is a suggested donation of $5, and the event will also include food, raffles and auction items. Donations also can be made by depositing at any Charter One Bank using the trust account No. 4521532488. Thumbs down: To those who did not heed our advice about respecting the bald eagles seen throughout McHenry County. As the nation’s symbol makes a comeback, more bald eagles have been spotted throughout the county, as we chronicled in Sunday’s edition. Instead of respecting the eagles and their habitat, we’ve, unfortunately, received reports of people doing the opposite – screaming at the eagles and seeing how close they can get. Please respect the bald eagles in our area. Don’t spoil it for the rest of us.


The taxing question Congress has a lot of bad habits, none more maddening than passing temporary tax deductions and credits for special purposes and special interests. In theory, this enables lawmakers to reassess them periodically, keeping the ones that work and discarding the rest. In practice, temporary provisions become permanent through the annual legislative log-rolling known as a “tax extenders” bill. It’s a full-employment exercise for lobbyists that in recent years has lumped some sound policies (a business credit for research and development) with others that are obscure (a break for rum makers in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands), wasteful (wind energy subsidies) and plain old indefensibly parochial (a break for auto racetracks). Tax extenders used to be “must-pass” legislation because the bill included an annual “fix” to the alternative minimum tax (AMT) that would otherwise clobber the middle class; Congress saw no need to pay for it with offsetting tax increases or spending cuts. But Congress enacted a permanent repair to the AMT in the “fiscal cliff” deal at the beginning of 2013. As a result, the tax extenders bill lost a lot of its political urgency, and Congress did not pass one before Dec. 31. The expired provisions, totaling $54.2 billion, must be addressed retroactively in the coming weeks if they are to be addressed at all. The remaining question is whether Congress will break with past practice and pay for the bill. Last December, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., tried to pass a tax extenders bill without offsetting spending cuts or revenue increases, but he was thwarted by Republican objections. On Thursday, Mr. Reid announced that the Senate wouldn’t tackle the issue again until Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., takes over as chairman of the Finance Committee upon the departure of Sen. Max Baucus, DMont., to the U.S. Embassy in Beijing. Mr. Wyden, and his opposite number in the House, Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich., will face pressure to pass an unpaidfor bill, with the excuse that all tax breaks must be dealt with in a grand bargain on tax reform. That’s a fiscally irresponsible cop-out – and a hypocritical one, too, given that the HouseSenate budget deal was premised on offsetting relief from sequester spending cuts. Even if it’s unlikely the tax-writers could get an agreement to eliminate or pay for the entire package, they could target the most expensive, least efficient breaks. A good candidate is bonus depreciation, which lets businesses deduct the cost of capital equipment in the year of its purchase, rather than more gradually. This provision accounts for nearly one-tenth of the bill’s cost, according to the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget. The Washington Post

In the case of sex trafficking, exploitation implies the forced prostitution or sexual abuse of vulnerable men, women and children. Sadly, McHenry County is seeing a rise in such cases. We simply cannot ignore this any longer. To combat this scourge, Patriots United is hosting a breakfast that will address the societal factors that allow this modern day slavery to exist. Attendees will learn what trafficking looks like and what to do if they see it so together we can stop this injustice and eliminate this victimization of women and children. The panel will feature constructive dialog and solutions by Laila Mickelwait, state Sen. Karen McConnaughay and college-student activist Ben Anderson. In attendance will be civic leaders from throughout the suburbs, including Congressman Randy Hultgren, who will share how he is making progress on Capitol Hill, former Congressman Don Manzullo and several dozen state and local

elected officials. Regardless of our politics, let’s join together and stop this injustice in our midst. The event will take place Feb. 8 at D’Andrea Banquets in Crystal Lake. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m., and the program runs from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. Breakfast will be provided for attendees. People interested in attending can register by visiting www.

David Vitter of Louisiana about surviving a sex scandal), but get a detail wrong about whether you divorced at 21 or at 19, and woe unto you. That’s what happened to Wendy Davis last weekend. You may know her as the Texas state senator in pink sneakers who delivered an 11-hour filibuster against abortion restrictions in June. The onetime teenage single mother who lived in a trailer park and graduated from Harvard Law School was so well-spoken, impassioned and appealing that she is running for governor less than a year later. But now she’s being Swiftboated. The story of the courageous, articulate and inspiring lawyer has become the tale of a fabulist who can’t be trusted after the Dallas Morning News raised a swirl of questions about her personal history, some provided by her ex-husband. She said the allegations came from her would-be Republican opponent in the gubernatorial race, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott. The attacks won’t work,

VIEWS Margaret Carlson she said, “because my story is the story of millions of Texas women who know the strength it takes when you’re young, alone and a mother.” Nonetheless, Republicans fact-checked her life story and found the timeline wanting. Davis herself acknowledged that “my language should be tighter” when it comes to the details of her biography and promised to be “more focused on the detail.” I may be soft on anyone who takes a good story and makes it better. I grew up in an Irish family where Sunday dinner would have been no more than well-done roast beef and mashed potatoes had it not been for uncles outdoing one another about the size of the fish they’d caught and the poker pot they’d won. And what is journalism but organizing facts into a compelling narrative. Davis has the bad luck to have a second ex-husband giving his side of the rags-to-riches story (he said he supplied the riches). Yes, she and her daughter lived in a mobile home, but only for a few months before moving into an apartment, and she worked two jobs. Enter the


second husband, an older lawyer with whom she had a second daughter. They divorced in 2005 but not before, he said, he paid for her last two years at Texas Christian University and for Harvard Law, and kept her two daughters while she was there. Davis said that she and her husband cashed in a 401(k) and took out loans to pay for her tuition and that she split time between Massachusetts and Texas. When they divorced, he asked for and got custody of the two girls, and Davis was doing well enough by then to pay child support. Did Davis “cavalierly deceive voters” with a “fanciful narrative,” as Abbott’s spokesman Matt Hirsch said, or is there a truthiness to her telling of her life 30 years ago? The elements of working her way up from hardscrabble beginnings are as she’s described them. Davis already faces an uphill climb in a state that hasn’t elected a Democrat statewide since 1994. Women have a hard time in Texas. When former Gov. Ann Richards ran in 1990, it was no barbecue. She was accused of using cocaine and being an alcoholic, albeit a recovering one. At a debate, her Republican opponent, Clayton Williams, refused to shake her hand. At one point in the campaign, he expressed the hope that she wouldn’t “go

back to drinking again.” An oil and gas wildcatter, he outspent Richards two-to-one, but lost after a joke about rape that went too far, even by Wild West standards: “If it’s inevitable, just relax and enjoy it.” There’s something at work here where men get to boast and women are supposed to be modest and sweat the details. Look at Mayor Dawn Zimmer of Hoboken, N.J. If she gets a single fact wrong about her allegation that Gov. Chris Christie’s administration threatened to stiff her city on Hurricane Sandy recovery funds, she’ll be toast, and Christie will remain the selfproclaimed hero of the coast. I don’t agree with Davis on the filibuster that made her famous. Abortions should be illegal after viability, which is coming earlier and earlier as neonatal care improves. But I do agree with her on the arc of her life. She started out dirt poor and rose through pluck and luck (though that ex-husband is a mixed bag) to make a huge deal of herself. Nothing that happened last weekend takes away from that. But still, it’s too bad for her she didn’t run off to Argentina with a polo player, or two. Then she’d be ahead in the polls. • Margaret Carlson is a Bloomberg View columnist.

HOUSE FIRE LEAVES $150K IN DAMAGE A fire Friday morning left $150,000 in damage to a vacant single-family home, Fox Lake Fire Protection District officials said. About 4:50 a.m., firefighters were called to 27814 Belden Ave. in Spring Grove – in the Fox Lake fire district – for a fire that had heavy smoke coming from the house, said Battalion Chief Larry Van Hoorelbeke. Fire then was spotted coming from near the gas meter of the two-and-a-half story house, Van Hoorelbeke said. The fire was under control by 8:30 a.m. No one was hurt and firefighters believe a water heater malfunction caused the accidental fire, Van Hoorelbeke said. Firefighters from McHenry Township, Spring Grove, Antioch, Newport, Lake Villa, Gurnee and Twin Lakes, Wis., assisted on the call. The scene was cleared about 9:35 a.m.

MCC lifts gun restrictions Loaded firearms can be stored in cars parked in all lots By JEFF ENGELHARDT CRYSTAL LAKE – Loaded guns will now be allowed to be securely stored in vehicles on any McHenry County College parking lot after the board of trustees lifted restrictions it once considered. The initial proposal called for “safe harbors” in Lot C and Lot D near the child day care center, prohibiting any vehicle with a firearm from parking in those spaces. But

“I really think that limiting it from two parking lot facilities is too hard to police and too hard to manage. I think it has to be one consistent policy that goes for the entire campus.” Linda Liddell McHenry County College trustee

some trustees were concerned with late-arriving students needing to scramble for a spot or needing to park off campus.

Trustee Linda Liddell said the college should simplify the policy to make it easily understandable for all students and staff.

“I really think that limiting it from two parking lot facilities is too hard to police and too hard to manage,” Liddell said. “I think it has to be one consistent policy that goes for the entire campus.” Restricting Lots C and D would have taken away roughly 20 percent of the college’s parking spaces for those with guns in their vehicles. Under the concealed-carry law passed by the Illinois Legislature

ACCIDENT VICTIM RAN INTO TRAFFIC MARENGO – A 13-year-old boy who suffered injuries that were not life-threatening in an accident Thursday ran in front of the car that hit him, police said. The boy was crossing Grant Highway at East Street about 4:45 p.m. when he was hit by a 1999 Ford four-door car, officials said. “According to witnesses, he ran in front of the cars,” Police Chief Joseph Hallman said. “Maybe he thought he could make it, or misjudged the distance.” The Marengo boy was flown to a hospital in Rockford, the Marengo Fire Protection District said. Alicia Del Torre Perez, 37, of Marengo who was driving the car, was charged with not having a valid driver’s license. Hallman said there might be additional charges pending further investigation, but said he doubts it.

REFERENDUM ON BALLOT Voters to decide direct election of County Board chairman By KEVIN P. CRAVER A years-long political battle over whether voters should get to elect the chairman of the McHenry County Board will come to a head on the March 18 primary ballot. Voters will get to decide in a binding referendum whether to elect the County Board chairman for themselves, or continue the practice of allowing the 24-member board to elect the chairman from among its own ranks. The following is a list of questions voters may have, with answers based on state statute governing elections and county government.

Q: What happens if the referendum passes? A: If approved by county voters, they will get to popularly elect the chairman to four-year terms, starting with the 2016 election. The McHenry County Board

Phyllis N. Powell 86, formerly of Harvard Barbara A. Svenningsen 59, Crystal Lake Andrew C. Vadnais 23, Grass Valley, Calif. Doreen A. Vlasnik 67, Marengo OBITUARIES on page B4

Q: How is the chairman elected now? A: The County Board elects a chairman and a vice chairman from among themselves every two years when the new board is seated after each November election. A chairman or vice chairman must have a majority vote, or at least 13 members. The vice chairman would not be popularly elected if the referendum passes. State law does not provide a mechanism for doing so.

Q: Is this referendum the same as the county executive referendum defeated in 2012? A: No – that was a completely separate matter. That referendum would have changed county government to an executive form, which

creates a county executive who wields significant powers such as the executive branch of state or federal government, hence the name. Only one Illinois county has an executive form of government. The only thing this referendum changes, if approved, is who gets to elect the McHenry County Board chairman.

legislation it passes. But that veto under state law can be overridden with a simple majority, not a threefifths majority. State law automatically grants veto power over county board budgets to elected chairmen of counties with 700,000 or more residents, but McHenry County’s population is less than half of that threshold.

Q: What new powers would an elected chairman have? A: Not much at all.

Q: What are the arguments for popular election? A: Supporters argue that voters

A chairman elected by voters has the power to unilaterally call special meetings of the County Board. And after each 10-year U.S. Census, the chairman has the option to propose his or her own redistricting map of County Board districts, based on population data. The County Board either can vote to approve it, or reject it and approve its own.

in a county the size of McHenry County should decide the County Board chairmanship, not the members. Direct election, they add, would mean more accountability.

Q: What do the other collar counties do? A: The Lake County Board, like

Q: Could the County Board grant the chairman more authority? A: The County Board, if it

McHenry County’s, elects its chairman. Voters in Kane and DuPage counties directly elect the chairman. Cook County voters elect a board president, and Will County

wished, could grant the chairman the power of amendatory veto over


‘Blood feud’ could go to trial Former CL man charged McHenry man has until Monday to accept plea deal By CHELSEA McDOUGALL

would be made up of 25 members – the current 24-member board and the board chairman. The chairman in this case will not be a voting member, unlike now – a popularly-elected chairman would only cast a vote to break a tie.

WOODSTOCK – A McHenry man accused of shooting another and cutting him with a machete has until Monday to decide if he wants to take a plea deal offered Orlando by the state. Ferral-Mujica Prosecutors agreed to drop attempted murder charges against Orlando Ferral-Mujica if he pleads guilty to aggra-

vated battery with a firearm and cooperates with an ongoing investigation into the matter. Ferral-Mujica, 33, faces up to 90 years in prison if a jury returns a guilty verdict for his role in the attack that has been called a “blood feud” with roots in Mexico. He’s accused of shooting a man once in the chest near the heart, and when the gun jammed, he attacked the man with the machete. The man allegedly killed his uncle in Mexico. The attack happened on

Dec. 3, 2011. His brother, Armando Ferral-Mujica, 22, previously pleaded guilty to the crime and was sentenced to 16 years in prison. With the state’s offer, the older Ferral-Mujica could be sentenced to a prison term of anywhere from six to 30 years. The minimum he’s currently facing if he goes to trial and loses is 42 years. Assistant State’s Attorney Patrick Kenneally, said the prosecution’s offer would be off the table Monday if Ferral-Mujica rejects it. His trial is set for Feb. 3.

with shipping marijuana Eighteen pounds sent through mail from Calif. By SHAWN SHINNEMAN CRYSTAL LAKE – A former Crystal Lake resident was arrested Thursday on charges of allegedly trying to ship 18 pounds of marijuana to the area from his home in California. Jesse Jacoby, of Fort Bragg, Calif., is charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver and marijuana trafficking, both Class X felonies. He also faces a Class 1 felo-

ny possession of marijuana charge. Police say Jacoby, who moved out of the area about a year and a half ago, was sending the marijuana to himself and then traveling to the area to retrieve Jesse it, said Bill BackJacoby us, director of the North Central Narcotics Task Force. All 18 pounds of the drug were packaged in one shipment, he said.

Victim injured in crash is ‘very lucky’

Election funding a concern for opposition • REFERENDUM Continued from page B1

By SHAWN SHINNEMAN RICHMOND – An accident that seriously injured two people and sent a third to the hospital with minor injuries could have been a lot worse, Richmond Fire Chief Rick Gallas said. Slick roads likely were the cause of the two-vehicle accident between a tow truck and a four-door sedan at about 6:15 p.m. Friday. The accident occurred on Route 173 just west of North Solon Road. All three passengers were taken to Centegra Hospital – McHenry. Gallas called the driver of the sedan a “very lucky young lady.” “She’s injured, but it could have been much worse,” he said. “It was a very significant hit.” The sedan, which was barely recognizable, required a prolonged extrication, Gallas said. The woman was taken to the hospital with serious injuries, and her male passenger had minor injuries.

voters elect a county executive – both offices act as an executive branch and wield significantly more power than county chairmen. Several Illinois counties with larger populations have direct election, including Winnebago, LaSalle, Madison and St. Clair counties.

Richmond firefighters attempt to pull a victim out of a wrecked car Friday after a collision between a tow truck and sedan. Three passengers were taken to Centegra Hospital – McHenry with injuries. The driver of the truck – a flat-bed style tow truck that was carrying a car – also suffered serious injuries. The truck hit an electrical pole, and the driver was pinned inside and had to be extricated, Gallas said. None of the injuries were considered life-threatening, but Gallas said emergency

crews would have utilized Flight for Life services had the weather allowed. The accident occurred near a part of the road where snow had been blowing. “I don’t know that it necessarily hindered the visibility, but it caused snow to come across the street, and it was getting greasy,” he said.


Man suffers minor injuries in apartment blaze By SHAWN SHINNEMAN ALGONQUIN – A man in a Bulls coat stood on Main Street, hair singed, and watched fire crews carry the contents of his residence out onto a snowy sidewalk. Firefighters responded to and put out a fire at 102 S. Main St., Algonquin, at about 7 p.m. Friday. A fire had started in a room on the building’s ground floor, an address that looks like a storefront – with large, glass windows – but was being used as an apartment. The man who lives there was transported to a hospital with minor burns on his neck and the singes atop his

head, said Joe Teson, shift commander of the Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Department. Fire officials carried a caged rabbit from the scene, which they said had suffered minor injuries but was still alive. They said a turtle had also been found in the apartment. Teson said the man’s apartment would likely be deemed uninhabitable, but expected the building’s other residents would be able to re-enter their apartments by night’s end, pending clearance from the building inspector. Fire investigators were working at the scene Friday night, but a cause was yet to be determined.

Lisa Blum, who lives in the building, said the smoke alarms had been going off for 15 or 20 minutes Friday evening when her boyfriend decided to go investigate. He walked around the building, smelled smoke, peered in a window and saw the glow of flames, Blum said. Chris Leahy, of Lake in the Hills, said he was at a friend’s house nearby when they heard the alarms. They went outside and saw “a lot of smoke.” Firefighters arrived shortly thereafter, Leahy said. Emergency crews blocked off Main Street from Algonquin Road to Washington Street during the fire and cleanup.

direct election would require a lot more money to run for the office, opening it up to special interest influence. They also argue that accountability already exists because the chairman is a board member up for election every four years, as are the members who elect the chairman.

Q: How did we get here? A: Supporters have been pushing for a referendum since 2010, and brought it up in 2011 during post-census redistricting, when state law allows county boards to go to direct election without a referendum. State Rep. Jack Franks, D-Marengo, in 2012 filed a bill that would have forced popular election in McHenry and Lake counties. The bill got crushed in the House, but Franks spearheaded putting the county executive referendum on the November 2012 ballot. The County Board voted last August, 19-4, to finally put the question to voters this March. The issue of the chairman’s power and incumbency has come to a head in recent years over the power and incumbency of former Chairman Ken Koehler, who

was elected to four terms by the County Board before losing his 2012 bid for a fifth. Some opponents of direct election have alleged the entire issue is a result of what they call a political vendetta by Franks against Koehler.

Q: How long do chairmen stay in office? A: The average is four years – or two two-year terms – since the County Board went to its current structure after the 1970 Illinois Constitution did away with county boards made up of township supervisors. There have been 11 chairmen since, including current Chairwoman Tina Hill, R-Woodstock. But tenure has increased over time – Koehler served eight years, while his predecessors, Mike Tryon and Dianne Klemm, served six.

Restrictions in college-issued vehicles remain • GUNS Continued from page B1 over the summer, all firearms are banned on college campuses. But lawmakers also gave authority to individual colleges to draft policies on concealed carry in college-issued vehicles; establishing “safe harbor” parking lots; disciplining violators of the law; and reporting methods for students presenting a “clear and present” danger. The law took effect Jan. 1, but the state does not expect to start issuing permits until April.

“Does anyone really believe a gun-free zone really reduces or prevents violence?” Chris Jenner McHenry County College trustee Trustees had also planned to require all firearms in vehicles to be unloaded, but a closer reading of the law showed that was not required so they decided to lift that restriction as long as the loaded firearm is locked in a gun console or glove compartment. Restric-

tions on firearms in college-issued vehicles remain, meaning staff and student-athletes would not be able to carry while traveling for college functions or competitions. Trustee Chris Jenner remained opposed to the policy, saying the law is a bad one and the college should inform associations that represent colleges to push for reform. He argued those with permits to carry should be able to carry. “Does anyone really believe a gun-free zone really reduces or prevents violence?” Jenner asked. “I don’t want to embrace the law, but it is what it is.”

California police are still investigating situation • MARIJUANA Continued from page B1 Jacoby was arrested by the task force at about 4 p.m. Thursday on the 400 block

of Golf Road, Crystal Lake, where he was staying with family, Backus said. Backus said police in California are still investigating the source of the marijuana and working to see

whether any other parties were involved. “On this end of it, it’s pretty cut and dried,” he said. “On that end of it, we’re still working with authorities out there.”

My birthday was this past week and I celebrated the night with three great Pilates JANUARY 25 & 26 classes. Everyone asked what my plans NORGE WINTER TOURNAMENT were and everyone responded similarly when NORGE SKI CLUB, FOX RIVER GROVE they heard what I was doing. “Really? Are The Norge Ski Club will host the US Cup & Inter- you nuts? Wouldn’t you rather go out to national 5 Hills Ski Jumping Winter Tournament. eat? Have some cake? Wine?” There are Highlights will include a Junior National Qualifier, plenty of more traditional celebrations in US Cup and Five Hills Tournament. Buttons for my future. The Golfer in My Life, Son and admittance are $11 will-call online and $15 at the Daughter are taking me out this weekend, brunch with extended family in a few weeks gate. Shuttles will be available on Sunday at the old Dominick’s parking lots and Fox River Grove and maybe lunch with friends next weekend. Train Station. Starts at noon both days. Ask any January baby about birthday ries and I bet they include freezing temperatures, blizzards and canceled parties. This time of year is tough to make plans, between JANUARY 25 weather and illness. (As I am writing this, THE TENORS 3 I’m at home with a cold that has settled in CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH OF ALGONQUIN my eyes. A typical finish to my birthday ALGONQUIN week.) One birthday tradition that I loved as a kid was going to Benihana for dinner. EvEnjoy an entertaining variety of musical genres erything about it was special: the delicious infused with a touch of comedy. Tickets are $10 in ginger salad dressing, the chef flipping a advance and $12 at the door. Starts at 3 p.m. shrimp at me and the staff singing “Happy Birthday” in Japanese. Weather permitting, 847-658-5308 for more information we would go on the night of my birthday. It felt like such a big deal to go out to eat on a school night!



Please note; we try to be as accurate as possible with our events but things are subject to change without notice. Check the listing and confirm before heading to an event.

Even though cake is never my top choice for dessert, I do love a beautiful birthday cake. For years, my cake was from Parkview

Bakery in Crystal Lake, my mom’s bakery of choice. Anyone remember it? I would always have fresh strawberries and whipped cream frosting. In my young mind, it seemed very sophisticated that my cake was from the next town over from Woodstock. This tradition continued with my kids. At an early age, Son requested carrot cake. What eight year old asks for that? I found a great version at Baker’s Square that we ordered for quite a few years. For Daughter, I would order from Ambrosia in Barrington. Wonder if her young mind thought it was sophisticated that her cake was from another town? Armchair Review: Unfortunately is was another movie-less week for the Golfer and me. I need to get this “fun train” back on track. We might get to one this weekend if the timing works. The Golfer is helping a friend coach sixth grade basketball and there are four games scheduled this weekend. Between that and my cold, it could be another hibernating weekend for me. Maybe watching the Grammys and “The Bachelor: Sean and Catherine Wedding” on Sunday night will help me feel better. Will the Golfer buy into the idea of “medicinal tv?” Happy Birthday to all the January babies, especially to a certain two, my mom and the Golfer’s mom! Same day, too. Enjoy the weekend! Autumn

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

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

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 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. Despite failing all of 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

Text announcing pregnancy is no cause for celebration Dear Abby: My daughter, who recently turned 21, sent me a two-word text message, “I’m pregnant.” She has been dating a marijuana-smoking young man for less than a year, and I’m disappointed by this outcome. Her sister, who is a year older, already has two children by two men. No, they weren’t raised by a harlot. I adopted them when they were early elementary-aged children. It’s not my fault. I’m disgusted by their choices. I haven’t talked with her yet. I won’t try to lecture her or tell her how she should live her life. The time for that is over. I feel it would

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips be best to say nothing if I can’t be positive. Suggestions? – Disgusted In The

South Dear Disgusted: It would be better if you said nothing to your daughter while you are angry, or you may say something you will regret. It would not be out of line, however, to text her back and ask, “How do you and ‘John’ plan to support the baby?” If you don’t plan to help her in any way, you should

let her know now she’ll be on her own. Dear Abby: Our 13-year-old is addicted to her phone. She stays on it for hours, and it’s affecting the time she goes to bed. She’s starting to oversleep the alarm in the morning before school. She’s spoiled, and I’m afraid removing or limiting phone privileges will lead to major problems with her protesting it. I don’t want truant officers or social workers coming to my house because my wife and I can’t discipline our kid. How do you handle a spoiled brat without involving outside agencies? She’s nice to people in school, but

Exhausted Dad Dear Dad: You and your wife created this “monster,” and now it’s your job to make things right. Of course your daughter won’t like it when you set rules, but you must establish some for her before your lack of parenting causes even more serious problems. Set the rules and stick with them. If she won’t follow them, there should be penalties for not doing so. Try this: Start with homework. When it’s done, she can have her phone for a period of time. Inform her if she oversleeps because

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff loss in both groups. Women in Group 1 lost significantly more weight than women in Group 2. The women in Group 1 also had lower insulin, glucose and lipid levels. This shows this eating pattern benefits overall health, as well as weight loss. A problem with late-night eating is most people tend to overeat at that time. We eat out of boredom or fail to adjust our daytime calories to allow for a nighttime snack. Nighttime snackers are more likely to develop unhealthy eating habits, which can lead to weight gain. Another factor that may come into play is the body’s circadian rhythm, or sleep-wake cycle. One study suggested our body processes food differently at different times of day. Another recent study, by researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, found the body’s circadian rhythm makes us

hungrier in the evening. I’d bet the main reason calories late in the day are burned less efficiently has to do with circadian rhythms. We 21st-century humans (the Homo sapiens species) and the Homo erectus and Homo ergaster species that preceded us go back 1 to 2 million years. Until the last few hundred years, all but the most affluent of us didn’t have much light after the sun went down. That must have meant we ate during daylight and went to sleep soon after sunset. I assume our bodies adapted to that reality. Our bodies probably are built to burn energy most efficiently at the time of day – for most of our history – we ate. Whatever the mechanism, eating late at night does appear to contribute to weight gain. If you’re trying to lose weight, put an end to those late-night snacks.

Little Rock Dear Teen: Your mother appears to belong to the ostrich school of parenting. If she doesn’t hear something, it doesn’t exist. Clearly, you do need to talk with someone about the feelings you’re experiencing and why you feel the need to “cling to these people.” Because your mother can’t/won’t do this, it’s important you talk to a counselor at school and ask for the help you need. • Write Dear Abby at www. or P.O.

Late-night snackers prone to gaining weight Dear Dr. K: Is it true eating late makes you gain weight? Dear Reader: I’d heard the same thing for decades, but I wasn’t sure it was true. I had to do some research to answer your question. Several recent studies have looked into this question. The results were not unanimous, but most studies show eating late in the day does contribute to weight gain and other health problems. In one study, researchers found eating a big breakfast and a small dinner is better for weight loss than eating a small breakfast and a large dinner. Ninety-three women with metabolic syndrome participated in this study. (Metabolic syndrome is a set of factors that increases your risk for heart disease, stroke, diabetes and other health problems.) The women were randomly assigned to different diets. Group 1 ate a 700-calorie breakfast, 500-calorie lunch and 200-calorie dinner. Group 2 ate a 200-calorie breakfast, 500-calorie lunch and 700-calorie dinner. After 12 weeks, the researchers measured weight

During that time, I made friends with people who were not good for me. However, I still feel I need to cling to these people and be there for them. As I write this, one of the girls I was closest to is in prison and will be there for a long time. I have to pretend to be fine and act as if I don’t care for her, but I do, desperately.

Lorde sang at a small concert days before her big night at the Grammys and reminded the crowd to tune in to her performance Sunday night. The 17-year-old New Zealander performed for a tightly packed crowd Thursday at the Soho House in Los Angeles. She thanked them for watching and said she hopes they’ll be watching Sunday. Lorde kicked off the show with “Gone and Glory” and later played the downbeat anthem “Royals,” which is nominated for song and record of the year. The No. 1 hit is also up for best pop solo performance, and Lorde’s debut, “Pure Heroine,” will compete for pop vocal album. Cuba Gooding Jr., “The Big Bang Theory” actress Kaley Cuoco, Lance Bass and “X Factor” winners Alex & Sierra attended the concert for Delta Airlines.

BUZZWORTHY Stars to announce ACM Award nominees online

3 Fla. police officers suspended for providing unauthorized Bieber escort from airport

Rapper-producer’s charity event raises $2.4 million It was an old-school party at’s annual pre-Grammy charity concert as veteran rap stars such as Slick Rick and Doug E. Fresh rocked a capacity crowd along with the likes of Bell Biv Devoe, Chaka Khan and Sergio Mendes. The “Trans4m” event Thursday raised more than $2.4 million for the rapper-producer’s Foundation, according to event organizers. The group provides educational support for students in the underprivileged section of East Los Angeles, where grew up. As he waited backstage to introduce various performers, said the event, which has become a Grammy-week staple, attracts other stars because they want to support the cause. “People are coming to the Grammys just to celebrate, and when you put purpose in the room, people inherently, they want to do good,” he said. “I think that’s the reason why we’ve been able to keep this going.” Previous performers at his charity concerts have included his own Black Eyed Peas, James Brown, Jackson Browne, Bobby Brown, Alicia Keys and Boyz II Men. This year, Scarface, Busta Rhymes and Chaka Khan were among those who had the Avalon bumping until the early-morning hours. said last year his foundation sponsored hackathons, taught students how to code and sent other students to China. “Their GPA [grade point average] is through the roof, their attendance is through the roof, we’re at a 90 percent graduation rate and the program is going to support them through college,” he said.

An official says three Florida police officers have been suspended for giving Justin Bieber an unauthorized escort from the airport. Opa-locka Assistant City Manager David Chiverton said Friday that the officers were suspended with pay pending the outcome of an investigation. Police escorts from the Opa-locka Executive Airport are not uncommon, but they must follow procedure. Chiverton says the one that accompanied Bieber on Monday had not been authorized. According to Chiverton, investigators are trying to get more information from the airport and the officers about where police escorted Bieber. Bieber was free on bail Friday after an arrest on charges of DUI, driving with an expired license and resisting arrest. Miami Beach police say Bieber smelled of alcohol when he was stopped after drag racing early Thursday.

Madonna to perform at the Grammy Awards It’s official: Madonna will perform at the Grammy Awards. A Friday news release from The Recording Academy had no other details about the seven-time Grammy winner’s appearance, which has been a rumor for some time. Also added to the performance lineup are nominees Miranda Lambert and Billie Joe Armstrong. They will sing a tribute to the late Phil Everly of The Everly Brothers. Juicy J and Trombone Shorty also have been added to the roster. They’ll join a star-studded lineup that includes most of today’s top pop stars and leading nominees Jay Z, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Pharrell Williams and Kendrick Lamar. The 56th annual Grammy Awards hosted by LL Cool J will air live Sunday night from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

The nominees for this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards will be announced via Twitter and Facebook in a series of videos by TV personalities. Fox Sports broadcaster Erin Andrews, Willie and Korie Robertson from “Duck Dynasty,” Beth Behrs from “2 Broke Girls” and hosts from “CBS This Morning,” “Entertainment Tonight,” “The Talk” and “The Insider” will make the announcements on Jan. 29. The 49th annual ACM Awards will air live on CBS from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on April 6. Other announcers for the nominees include actress-singer Lucy Hale from “Pretty Little Liars,” singers Jerrod Niemann and Darius Rucker, and reigning ACM songwriter of the year Dallas Davidson.

Bass forgives Bachelor for anti-gay remarks If Juan Pablo Galavis is looking for forgiveness after his anti-gay comments, he need look no further than Lance Bass. “I don’t hate him at all,” Bass said. “I still think he’s cute.” Galavis, star of ABC’s “The Bachelor,” apologized last week after telling a journalist that he didn’t think a gay or bisexual bachelor would set a good example for kids. He also said gays were more “pervert, in a sense.” Galavis, who grew up in Venezuela, later said he respects gay people and blamed a language barrier for his use of the word “pervert.” Bass, who is gay, says he has a massive crush on Galavis. “Of course it’s disappointing, because you don’t want someone who [you] actually love to have those thoughts,” said the former ‘N Sync singer. However, he blamed Galavis’ attitude on the culture in which he grew up. “When you grow up in a place like that, you get brainwashed into thinking that way, you know, you can’t help what you grow up with.”

Planning Key to Retirement Security

Paula Dorion-Gray, CFP® We’ve all heard about the importance of financial planning, but what is it really? In addition, what does it actually mean for a person or couple on the cusp of retirement? Paula Dorion-Gray, a Certified Financial Planner and President of Dorion-Gray Retirement Planning, Inc. (DGRP) in Crystal Lake explained her definition of what financial planning is. “You hear the term bantered about quite a bit. The accurate definition of financial planning is the analysis of every component of a person’s financial life. It includes estate planning, investments, taxes, savings, and insurance, anything that reflects on a person’s money,” In business since 1976, DGRP specializes in guiding clients through life’s financial critical events, including preparing

for retirement, a complex process that begins with a financial plan. “We require it for every client. There’s simply no way to make valid recommendations without one,” she said. Each plan covers three components: quantitative, qualitative and balancing the client’s risk tolerance with their financial needs. The quantitative portion is data driven. “This is where we look at the value of all the accounts, the investments, pensions, Social Security, life and health insurance, everything. We calculate how much it is worth and how much income it will provide,” she said. The qualitative portion looks at what the client will need. “These are lifestyle considerations and during the process, we have our clients spend a significant amount of time determining the cost of their lifestyle . It’s not us telling them how they should live. Instead, we look at what they will need to maintain their lifestyle,” she said. Many clients have retirement goals such as travel and spending time with grandchildren. Most are concerned about having enough to live comfortably. “One of the emotions that consistently presents itself is fear. Being afraid they will outlive their income” said Dorion-Gray. The plan’s final component is risk management, which balances the projected worth of the client’s portfolio with their lifestyle goals. When the two are not in balance, the plan enables the planner to recommend solutions that fit the client’s comfort level. “A big part of what we do is educating our clients so they understand the risk levels and the potential results,” said Dorion-Gray. She added that the risk management component also evaluates insurance needs, including health care and long-term care. She recommends clients have a plan in place at least five years before retirement, but starting earlier means greater opportunity to adapt to market conditions.

Clients should take advantage of employer matches and tax incentives. State employees and teachers, whose retirement benefits are changing, would do well to create or update their financial plans, she said. “It’s good for everyone, regardless of their situation.” Working with a Certified Financial Planner provides assurance the planner meets or exceeds industry professional standards, but in reality “It takes years for a planner to truly understand all the complexities of each financial situation, and the reality is changing daily,” she said. That’s why each member of Dorion-Gray’s staff has an area of expertise. “We have a person who is a long-term care expert, another focuses on investments, and so on. I feel the team approach is the best strategy and provides the best possible solutions for our clients,” she said. She says the most rewarding aspect of creating a financial plan is helping clients feel in control of their future. “They may come in feeling fearful about their future, but that fear usually goes away once they have a solid plan in place.”

Trojans romp in 2nd half


Gorney gets it done Forward sinks clutch baskets in Valley win

C-G uses 22-4 run to bury CL South By JEFF ARNOLD


CARY – The scoring burst was fast and furious, turning tenacious defensive pressure on one end of the floor into easy offense on the other. It was the kind of surge Ralph Schuetzle knew his CaryGrove boys basketball team was capable of once it returned to full strength. But it was also the kind of quick turnaround that Crystal Lake South – playing for the first time without injured leading scorer Austin Rogers – simply couldn’t afford. In the end, the Trojans’ explosive start to the second half Friday proved to be just the kick-start they needed in a 61-43 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division win over the Gators. The Trojans outscored South, 22-4, in the opening five minutes of the third quarter, relying on a wealth of scoring sources to turn what had been a four-point halftime lead into a runaway victory. “It was huge,” said C-G junior Jason Gregoire, who scored a game-high 22 points. “We knew we had to come out strong [in the third quarter], and we just started hitting some shots. “[South] was already playing without Rogers, and once we built the lead like we did, I think we took some of their confidence.” The Trojans (11-8 overall, 4-2 FVC Valley) were able to keep the Gators on the run during the pivotal stretch. In addition to Gregoire’s steady scoring hand, Devin McDonough (11 points) sparked C-G with three 3-pointers, two of which came early during the early secondhalf surge. The Trojans finished the night with eight 3s. When Gregoire turned a steal into a breakaway onehanded dunk, South coach Matt LePage was forced to call timeout with his team suddenly trailing by 14. HUNTLEY – Fortunately for Huntley, forward Zach Gorney ignored his recent shooting slump. When Gorney was open during a couple of critical moments in the fourth quarter for 17-footers, he did not hesitate and buried both shots to tie the score against Jacobs. After Gorney’s baskets, a driving layup from Riley Wicks gave the Red Raiders the lead for good in a 48-45 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division boys basketball victory Friday night. Wicks’ bucket came as 6-foot8 forward Amanze Egekeze, who had four fouls, was waiting to report back into the game. Egekeze then added a pair of free throws with 15.9 seconds to go, and Huntley (12-4 overall, 5-0 FVC Valley) grabbed a two-game division lead. “Those were six huge points for us when Amanze was on the bench,” Raiders coach Marty Manning said. “I was really proud of those seniors for making plays.” Manning said Gorney, normally an adept outside shooter, had made two of his past 20 midrange jumpers (10 to 18 feet) and was ready for him to stop taking those shots. Gorney, however, had hit a 3-pointer late in the third quarter that helped boost his confidence later. “I found it at a good time I guess, started hitting when we really needed it,” Gorney said. “I hit it in the beginning of the year and I’ve been slumping toward the middle, but this is the first time I’ve hit there in a few games.”

Shoeless Joe Jackson was a rookie for the Philadelphia Athletics. George Halas was a 10-year-old kid. Yet 1905 was when the tradition started at Norge Ski Club, and it endures today. This weekend, ski jumpers from around the world will arrive in McHenry County to showcase their skills at the oldest, continuously open ski club in the United States. Saturday will include the junior competition and junior national championship, while Sunday will mark the senior meets, including the long-standing competition. Tickets are $15 and will be available at the entrance to the club, which is near Routes 14 and 22. Children 12 years old or younger will receive free admission.

Local bowlers vie for state finals berths By KEVIN MEYER One team and several individuals from the area will compete Saturday at the Boylan Boys Bowling Sectional at Park Lanes in Loves Park with a chance to compete in the state finals. McHenry headlines the local lineup, after going 13-1 this season and finishing second at last weekend’s Hononegah Regional to advance as a team. The Warriors’ score of 6,553 was the second

highest among teams advancing to the Boylan Sectional. “We have a big group of seniors, and it’s nice to see all of their hard work finally pay off,” McHenry coach Kyle Funkhouser said. “I think if we show up and do exactly what we did at the regional, there’s a very good shot we will be in that top six.” If they use the same lineup as at the regional, McHenry will be represented by Paul Colomer, Steve Churchill, Kody Hudjera, Thomas Reinhardt and Geoff McClaughry.

“We have a big group of seniors, and it’s nice to see all of their hard work inally pay off.” Kyle Funkhouser McHenry boys bowling coach Colomer, Churchill and Hudjera finished in the top four as individuals at the regional. Five other local individual qualifiers will be compet-

ing at the sectional. From the Hononegah Regional, freshman Jake Barton of Marengo and senior Tyler Busch of Woodstock coop both narrowly made the cutoff to advance. “I’m really excited,” Barton said. “This is the first big tournament I’ve ever really competed in and this is going to be a lot more fun.” Huntley’s Grant Gardner and Jacobs’ Brandon Biondo advanced out of the DeKalb Regional. Biondo advanced after participating without a

Warriors avoid fouls, stymie D-C

BELOW: Jacobs junior Matt Bindi puts up a shot under pressure from Huntley’s Zach Gorney during the second quarter Friday. Huntley beat Jacobs, 48-45.

By PATRICK MASON CARPENTERSVILLE – McHenry guard Cody Freund figures he has been in foul trouble nearly every game this season, but Friday’s Fox Valley Conference Valley Division game against Dundee-Crown was different. Freund and his Warriors teammates didn’t have to worry about foul trouble, as they picked up only four the entire game. The smart defense helped McHenry take down the host Chargers, 51-37. “I would say that was the exact opposite of how we usually play,” said Freund, who finished with a game-high 17 points. “We have always been taught to play tight defense until the rule changes this season changed all that.” The Warriors (9-8 overall, 2-3 FVC Valley) poured over scouting reports on the Chargers during the week and wanted to take away their ability to drive the lane and get to the basket with their athletic guards. The result was a hands-off style of defense that gave the illusion of space to drive before the Warriors quickly rotated and closed the lane, forcing the Chargers into unwanted jump shots. “Tonight we did a great job of scouting report defense,” McHenry coach Tim Paddock said. “[The Chargers] have a lot of guys good off the bounce, and they will break you down and get to the rim, and our goal tonight was make them shoot over the top of us.” The Chargers (4-12, 0-5), although aggressive to the basket, like to take their time setting up the ideal look. Many of their possessions Friday were long and deliberate, sometimes taking 40 seconds or more off the clock. Paddock saw this on tape and made sure his players knew to stay committed on defense and work through the long possessions. The Warriors’ defense was sound throughout the game and despite the long possessions forced 10 D-C turnovers. The Warriors also did a good job of allowing the Chargers only three free-throw attempts. The first McHenry foul came with 57.8 seconds left in the third when Kyle Postal was called for a block on Kiwaun Seals. “Sometimes you can get a little tired during those long possessions,” Paddock said, “but we kept guarding and staying off.” Seals came off the bench for the Chargers and added a legitimate scoring threat. The junior finished with 16 points on seven baskets and 2-of-3 shooting from the free-throw line. He helped the Chargers pull within 23-19 near the end of the first half with six straight points. D-C a had a chance to pull within two, but a costly turnover and ensuing McHenry layup put the Warriors up 2519. “I really thought that the play right before half was a killer,” Chargers coach Lance Huber said. “We had a chance to cut it to two, and they came out and took it right to us in the third quarter.” McHenry outscored D-C in the third, 13-3. “I thought our guys played hard, but we have to play a little smarter as well,” Huber said. “Sometimes you’re the windshield, and sometimes you’re the bug.”

complete team at the regional. Johnsburg’s Evan Hitchcock, another freshman, advanced out of the Lake Zurich Regional by finishing fourth among individual qualifiers. The sectional, which starts at 9 a.m., will feature 16 teams and 40 individual qualifiers. After the completion of six games, the top six teams, plus the seven highest-scoring individuals not on one of those six teams, will advance to the two-day state final at St. Clair Bowl in Fairview Heights next weekend.

Jacobs in lead or tied most of 4th qtr. • HUNTLEY Continued from page C1 Gorney finished with 16 points, while Egekeze had 15. Gorney’s second jumper in the fourth tied the score at 44 with 2:22 remaining. Wicks’ driving basket gave the Raiders a 46-44 lead with 1:49 to go. “They were defending Amanze and Zach from driving, and I saw a hole and took it,” said Wicks, whose shot was contested in the lane. “To pull this out was really big for us. We just have to keep do-

ing business.” Jacobs (9-10, 3-2) pulled ahead, 38-32, on a pair of Chrishawn Orange layups late in the third before Gorney’s 3 made it 38-35. The Golden Eagles led or were tied most of the fourth quarter. “It’s hard to get over this one. We really wanted this one, on the road, trying to steal one,” said Orange, who led all players with 21 points. “We were really close today but just came up a little short.” Jacobs had two shots to tie at the end. Ben Murray fired from the right corner and missed, but fresh-

man forward Cameron Krutwig rebounded and hit Cory Boeckh, who drew two defenders behind the 3-point arc. Boeckh eventually worked himself free and launched a 3 that rolled out at the buzzer. “Cam did a really good job,” Eagles coach Jimmy Roberts said. “He’s incredible as a freshman. He gets that offensive rebound and 90 percent of guys probably go right back up with the layup. His first instinct is to turn and look, and Cory did a great job fighting one up. “It was a great effort, a great job by our guys.”

CLS girls lose at Mundelein

• TROJANS Continued from page C1

The Crystal Lake South girls basketball team lost Friday at Mundelein, 58-46, in nonconference play. The Gators (12-9) were behind 29-13 at the half and couldn’t make up the deficit. Sara Mickow led the Gators with 21 points and 16 rebounds and Chanel Fanter added 14 points. – Northwest Herald

At that point, only two minutes of the third quarter had expired. Three minutes later, the Gators’ deficit was 22. “It happened quick, really quick,” said LePage, whose team struggled offensively without Rogers, who tore two ligaments and suffered meniscus damage in his knee Wednesday during an overtime win against Mar-

ian Central. “We had turnovers, and they started hitting some shots. It was kind of like the perfect storm.” South (14-4, 2-3), which was led by Caleb Johnson (14 points) and Chris Mahoney (11), never recovered. The Trojans relied on their depth to keep the defensive pressure on during the third quarter when they outscored the Gators, 24-11. With plenty of personnel to throw at the Gators, C-G switched its defensive

press, taking away many of the open perimeter shots South had used in the first half to stay close. The offense took off from there for C-G, which came into the game averaging 49 points. From here on out, it’s a performance Schuetzle knows his team can build on. “When we can get to trapping people, turn them over and then stick some 3s, we can be dangerous because we can score some points in a hurry,” Schuetzle said.

Noteworthy Sutton dominance: Richmond-Burton’s Sutton brothers are putting together a season that may be looked upon as the best in Illinois high school state history by three brothers in a single season. Garrett Sutton, a senior, is a returning state champion and is undefeated this season. He is ranked No. 2 in Class 2A and recently took over the career wins record for the Rockets. With 154 wins, Garrett Sutton moved past Jordan Blanton’s previous record of 152. R-B coach Bret Wojcik said Garrett could reach 170 by the end of the season. Overtaking Blanton, who had one loss in his career, is an impressive achievement. Grant Sutton, a junior, finished fifth at state last year and is undefeated this season. He is ranked No. 1 at 126. Grant recently got his 100th career win. Gavin Sutton, a freshman, has three losses on the year, all of them to Class 3A opponents. He is ranked No. 2 in Class 2A at 113. Although the success Garrett and Gavin are having was expected, Wojcik said how Gavin would make the transition from youth/club wrestling to high school wasn’t as certain. That changed Dec. 27 and 28 at the Berman Holiday Classic in Palatine. Gavin Sutton lost in the quarterfinals the first day to Zion-Benton’s Anthony Munoz, 2-0. The next day, he came back to win four matches in the back draw and took third place. What really struck Wojcik was Gavin’s ability to accept coaching and make adjustments after the loss. “We were really impressed, and it gave us a clue for what we had,” Wojcik said. The most impressive thing Wojcik has seen in his freshman was his ability to control his opponents from on top, which is both a mental and physical advantage. “[Gavin] really impressed us with his riding ability. He’s really good at not letting people go,” Wojcik said. “It can really break somebody if you’re good at riding.” One of the biggest factors in Gavin Sutton’s success is learning from his brothers’ experience. Add in Cameron Kennedy, a Sutton cousin who lived with them for three years, and Gavin Sutton is not lacking for wrestling role models or full-time practice partners. “It helps a lot having his brothers there. [Gavin’s] got two coaches,” Wojcik said. “He’s really got an advantage with a couple of state place winners in his house.”

Hahn, Sox follow Cubs’ lead By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO CHICAGO – Listening closely to White Sox general manager Rick Hahn, it’s hard to avoid the similarities he faces with his counterparts on the North Side as he retools a roster coming off a 99-loss season. While Theo Epstein, Jed Hoyer and the Cubs have openly embraced the concept of rebuilding, the Sox aren’t conceding anything heading into this season. But the Sox, whose front office has tried to stay away from using the r-word as the organization aims for its first playoff appearance since 2008, are following a format similar to the Cubs. “We know this is a process; it’s going to take some time,” Hahn told the Northwest Herald during Friday’s SoxFest. “We certainly feel we made some good progress. It’s now time to see if some of our internal guys can take that next step and grow with the new guys we acquired and grow into a young group together or if we need to continue to look for external solutions.” Although the Sox want to replenish a farm system that was depleted of young talent by win-now trades the past few years, Hahn has begun balancing young talent with major-league ready prospects. It’s a formula, combined with investing money internationally and in the amateur draft, that has the Sox optimistic. “The moves he’s made have transformed the lineup in a very short amount of time – I think that it’s an unproven lineup in a lot of aspects – but there’s a lot of good chemistry and good vibes I’m getting from the new guys we got,” second baseman Gordon Beckham said. “I think they’re going to be a real positive influence on the team.” Dating to the trade deadline deal that brought 22-year-old outfielder Avisail Garcia to the Sox, Hahn has acquired four young, potentially long-term solutions to

White Sox general manager Rick Hahn speaks during the team’s SoxFest fan convention Friday in Chicago. an aging lineup. In addition to Garcia, the Sox signed Cuban slugger Jose Abreu and traded for a spark plug outfielder, Adam Eaton, and one of the top third base prospects in Matt Davidson. Both Eaton and Davidson came at a high price and cost the Sox experienced pitchers. Left-hander Hector Santiago, with 27 games started the past two seasons, and closer Addison Reed, with 69 career saves, were the casualties. The trades surprised reliever Nate Jones, who is good friends with Santiago and Reed, having come up together in the Sox’s system. Despite losing his friends, Jones said he has been energized by the moves and is excited about this team’s potential. “Everybody’s going to be playing with that chip on their shoulder because nobody wants to see what happened last year again,” Jones said. “We have to come out there and prove what we can do. ... No one really knows what to expect from us, and we’re just going to grind it out, prove everybody wrong.”

The Sox’s pursuit of Japanese righthander Masahiro Tanaka may have surprised some people, given the organization’s propensity to spend money more like a mid-market team. Even though they were outbid by the New York Yankees, Hahn and the Sox’s interest in Tanaka was genuine. Former GM and current executive vice president Ken Williams was known for his aggressive moves, and Hahn said the Sox “are continuing in that same vein.” Hahn realizes the expectations are low this season and nobody is pegging them to win the AL Central. But he’s convinced if the Sox stay on this path, the talented pitchers and the upside with position players will eventually lead to sustained success. “We want to get this thing right as quickly as possible, but we want it to be right for an extended period of time when we do,” Hahn said. “So we’re not going to take shortcuts, but we’re going to be aggressive when we see that opportunity, which was the case with Abreu and Tanaka.”

arbitration cases quickly. All-Star pitcher Travis Wood, who agreed to a $3.9 million contract for 2014 on Friday, was the first of the four remaining arbitration-eligible players to reach terms. Wood received a sala-

ry slightly closer to his $4.25 million arbitration filing than the Cubs’ $3.5 million filing. Opening Day starter Jeff Samardzija, who filed at $6.2 million (compared to the team’s $4.4 million) is the

Cubs’ highest-profile arbitration-eligible player left. Gold Glove second baseman Darwin Barney ($2.8 million vs. $1.8 million) and fourth outfielder Justin Ruggiano ($2.45 million vs. $1.6 million) also filed.

CHICAGO – Much has been made of Robin Ventura’s desire to manage, even though he made it clear in September he wanted in for the long run. Any doubts about that – Robin and general manager Rick Ventura Hahn’s desire to have Ventura lead the Sox into the next several years – were cleared away Friday when the Sox announced before the opening ceremonies at SoxFest 2014 that Ventura had agreed to a multiyear extension. Ventura, who signed a three-year deal as a surprise hire by Ken Williams before the 2012 season, has one year left on that deal. The Sox did not announce terms of this one, which is believed to be for two years and would take him through 2016. Ventura’s laid-back demeanor has a way of masking his desire to manage. When he turned down an extension during spring training last year, after the Sox finished second in the AL Central, some took that to mean that he wasn’t in it for the long haul. But all he wanted was

the Sox to be sure they knew he was their guy. Ninety-nine losses and looking ragged doing it didn’t change Hahn’s mind. “The decision he made was a selfless one that allowed me the latitude to get comfortable,’’ Hahn said. “I thought that was awfully special. It speaks to what kind of man he is and makes this decision easier.’’ Paul Konerko, who has played for a variety of managers including Jerry Manuel, Ozzie Guillen and Ventura, called the extension “a great move for the White Sox’’ because of Ventura’s manner. “He just doesn’t miss on how to handle guys and treat guys,’’ Konerko said. “Stern with them, and can get his point across, but for a team of this makeup it’s a good fit. The fact that he’s committed to this is great for him but I think it’s better for the White Sox.’’ It made sense to extend Ventura and keep him out of lame duck status during a rebuild year that will see growing pains for numerous young players. Only five managers are entering the final year of their contracts – Ron Roenicke, Fredi Gonzalez, Ron Washington, Clint Hurdle and Kirk Gibson – and the extension relieves Ventura of having to answer questions about his future.

Huntley grad Kalsow helps Toledo rise as top assistant coach A mere three winters ago, winning basketball was a hope for the University of Toledo men’s program. “I was talking to one of our radio guys the other night and he was bringing up some names of former players,” said Huntley graduate Jason Kalsow, an assistant coach Jason Kalsow for the Rockets. “I said, ‘Doesn’t that seem like five or 10 years ago?’ ” The team’s 4-28 season in the first year of coach Tod Kowalczyk’s tenure seems so distant now that the team has enjoyed an impressive turnaround. After posting 19- and 15-win seasons over the past two years, Toledo is making noise this season. The Rockets are off to a 16-2 start and lead the Mid-American Conference’s West Division with a 4-1 record. One of their two losses came against No. 8 Kansas. “We definitely have a lot more athletes,” Kalsow said of the team’s steady improvement. “We have really good depth, too. We play 10 guys, and they’re all capable. When we play our six through 10 guys, we don’t have any dropoff.” The Rockets boast a starting five that all average double figures in scoring. The group includes junior guard Rian Pearson (14.7 points a game), a second-team AllMAC selection last season, and sophomore guard Julius Brown (14.2), an all-conference third-team choice a year ago. Last season, the team shared the MAC West title but was ineligible for postseason play because of NCAA penalties related to poor Academic Progress Rate performance under previous coaching regimes. “This is a very hungry, humble group,” Kalsow said. “They’re very focused on one game at a time.” After a standout career at Division III Wisconsin-Stevens Point and three seasons on the bench at his alma mater, Kalsow spent two seasons with Kowalczyk at Wisconsin-Green Bay before joining the head coach’s staff at Toledo. “I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity he gave me,” said Kalsow, who is now the senior assistant on Kowalczyk’s staff. Along with learning the ropes in recruiting and day-today operations of a program, Kalsow said he is more heavily involved in in-game decision making than ever before in his career. “[Coach] has been great,” he said. “He has almost 25 years of college coaching experience, so I’ve learned a lot of different ways to work with personnel.” As for his future, Kalsow said being a head coach is a goal. “Obviously, that’s something that all assistant coaches are in the business for, to lead

Spieth takes Farmers lead after 63; Woods 9 back SAN DIEGO – Jordan Spieth turned out to be the star attraction Friday playing with Tiger Woods at Torrey Pines. Spieth again showed game well beyond his 20 years with a 9-under-par 63 on the North Course, giving him a one-shot lead over Stewart Cink going into the weekend at the Farmers Insurance Open. Cink drilled a 3-wood from 280 yards onto the green at the par-5 ninth on the tougher South Course for a twoputt birdie and a 71. Woods rarely gets upstaged at Torrey Pines, where his eight professional wins include the 2008 U.S. Open. But in his first competition in six weeks, Woods hardly looked the part as the defending champion. He did not make birdie on any of the par 5s for the second straight day, and a three-putt bogey on the par-5 ninth hole on the North gave him a 71. He was nine shots behind. Phil Mickelson’s ailing back wasn’t much better, although Lefty plodded along and shot 73 on the South to finish eight shots out of the lead.

Quarterback Derek Carr of Fresno State passes during Senior Bowl practice Monday at Fairhope Municipal Stadium in Fairhope, Ala.


Carr, other QBs try to open eyes Top quarterbacks not at all-star game By JOHN ZENOR The Associated Press MOBILE, Ala. – Derek Carr isn’t in nearly the same situation as his older brother going into the Senior Bowl, and that’s not entirely a bad thing. David Carr wound up being the No. 1 overall draft pick by the expansion Houston Texans after playing in the 2002 game, leading to a career that never took off. The younger Carr has been trying to enhance his chances of being a first-round pick leading up to Saturday’s showcase game for senior NFL prospects. No rookie team building from scratch awaits either. “There’s not an expansion team anymore,” Fresno State’s Derek Carr said. “A team isn’t starting fresh. These teams are all great. They’re just one step away. Our situations are completely different. “Our situations are different, but there’s so much to learn from it.” None of the Senior Bowl quarterbacks are regarded as first-round locks, much less top overall picks. The first quarterbacks taken figure to be juniors Johnny Manziel, Teddy Bridgewater and Blake Bortles, in some order. The Senior Bowl passers are hoping to wow an NFL team and move up the ladder. Florida State’s E.J. Manuel wound up being the No. 16 pick by Buffalo after earning MVP honors in last year’s game. From the NFL’s perspective, the week’s first few practices are what really matters in

evaluating players on the field. The game is of less importance, but South coach Gus Bradley also is looking to gauge leadership skills from his rotating group of QBs. “I want to see our quarterbacks lead. They need to lead a team,” said Bradley, coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars. “If we can become a team quickly, now there’s another evaluation that takes place: Can these quarterbacks lead our team that we developed in four days? We’ll compete any way we can to find out about these guys.” The first step was the measurable, height and weight. Virginia Tech’s Logan Thomas won that category at a shade under 6-foot-6 and 250 pounds. Then there’s a week of competition, meetings, drills – and endless streams of questions from NFL teams. And finally the game. The Senior Bowl pits Carr and the South’s small-school quarterbacks against the products of big-name programs leading the North. Carr is joined by San Jose State’s David Fales and Eastern Illinois’ Jimmy Garoppolo, a late addition after Alabama’s AJ McCarron opted not to play. Georgia’s Aaron Murray and Zach Mettenberger were invited to the game but are recovering from knee surgeries. The North is led by Thomas, Clemson’s Tajh Boyd and Miami’s Stephen Morris. “Obviously with games like this you’ve got to compete with some big-name guys and those big-school guys,” Fales said. “And these guys are the best, too, so to get a chance to all be out there on the field and compete and showcase our abilities is huge.”

Cold inspires Norge crew to work quickly • MUSICK Continued from page C1 to smash down the snow after it had been placed on the jump. Single-digit temperatures prompted a record finish, Glasder said. “I think it was extra incentive,” Glasder said with a laugh. “I think it used to take us between 4½ and five hours. This time, we did it in 3 hours and 45 minutes. That’s like an all-time best.” Simplicity is one of the beauties of ski jumping. Yes, equipment has come a long way. Yes, results can be measured with more precision

than ever. But ultimately, all you really need are a pair of skis, a hill and a bunch of snow. Well, that plus a few dozen manual laborers to prepare the jump in perfect shape. “It’s a lot of work,” Glasder said. “But it does work.” And the crew’s muscles still work, despite nearly four hours of filling and emptying thousands of bags of snow. “After you get done,” Glasder said, “it’s actually a pretty good feeling.” • Northwest Herald sports columnist Tom Musick can be reached at tmusick@shawKyle Grillot – and on Twitter @ Volunteers work to pack snow onto the ramp Wednesday at Norge Ski Club in Fox River Grove. tcmusick.

PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas – Jessica Korda took the second-round lead in the season-opening Bahamas LPGA Classic, birdieing four of her last seven holes in high wind Friday for a 7-under-par 66. The 20-year-old Korda had an 11-under 135 total on Atlantis Resort’s Ocean Club course. Paula Creamer, playing alongside Korda, was a stroke back after a 65. Michelle Wie and Monday qualifier Jenny Suh were tied for third at 9 under. Wie had a 65, and Suh shot 66. Lydia Ko, the 16-year-old New Zealander who shared the firstround lead with Meena Lee, was three strokes behind at 8 under after a 70.

Seattle’s Sherman fined $7,875 for taunting NEW YORK – Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was fined $7,875 for unsportsmanlike conduct/taunting in the final minute of the NFC Championship game Sunday against San Francisco. Sherman’s fine was confirmed by the league Friday. Sherman was flagged after he made a choking gesture toward the San Francisco bench that he said was directed at quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Sherman had just deflected a pass intended for Michael Crabtree in the end zone that was intercepted by linebacker Malcolm Smith and clinched Seattle’s 23-17 victory. Sherman ran over and after tapping Crabtree on the backside and extended his hand for a handshake. Crabtree then shoved Sherman in the face. The All-Pro cornerback then made the choking gesture. Sherman was the only player fined in the game.

Ruth’s 1923 Series watch coming to N.Y. auction NEW YORK – Babe Ruth’s 1923 World Series championship pocket watch, for decades thought to be lost to history, is coming to a New York City auction, where it’s expected to fetch at least $750,000. Ruth batted .368 and hit three homers in the 1923 World Series as the Yankees won the championship by beating the New York Giants in six games. It was a pivotal year for the franchise, as it moved into Yankee Stadium and won its first of 27 World Series championships. The pentagonal gold timepiece is being sold at Heritage Auction’s Feb. 22 sale. “It was the beginning of what’s become the most dominant dynasty in American sports,” said Chris Ivy, director of sports auctions at the Dallas-based auction house. “It changed the culture and Babe Ruth’s the ultimate leader of that team.” – Wire reports

Rumors? Fact is, Bulls lose big

Anthony pours in 62 points

Clippers’ Rivers backs Thibodeau By JOE COWLEY

Next for the Bulls CHICAGO – Tom Thibodeau is no stranger to rumors this season, so naturally he addressed the latest one: The Bulls coach dating swimsuit model Kate Upton. Who cares if he’s the one that made it up? That’s what kind of day Friday was for Thibodeau, and that was even hours before the 112-95 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers at the United Center. It started during the shootaround when Clippers coach Doc Rivers – who was the head coach in Boston when Thibodeau was an assistant – was asked about the rumors that Thibodeau could be looking to get out of his current contract with the Bulls and go elsewhere because of his diminishing relationship with the front office. “He’s under contract. So, yeah,’’ Rivers responded, when asked if he thought Thibodeau would be back with the Bulls next season. “I don’t know why he wouldn’t be. I think it’d be nuts not to have him here. I think he’s one of the best coaches in this league. So if you have that, that’s an asset. I don’t think any right-minded organization would allow that asset to leave. Because with all this adversity they’ve had with injuries, if you allow that one to leave, things will fall apart. That would be pretty much a guarantee.’’ Thibodeau was informed of what Rivers said, and continued to dismiss the talk about his departure, as well as his perceived rocky relationship with general manager Gar Forman and VP of basketball operations John Paxson. “OK. I’m not going to comment on rumors that you guys start, and you

look for me to respond,’’ Thibodeau said. “Obviously, I have a lot of respect for anything Doc does say, but to go down that path … . Every day there’s something going on. “Now, the rumor about my date with Kate Upton started by me, I’m not commenting on that one, either. Let’s move on.’’ Rivers didn’t, however, again praising Thibodeau in the pregame. “Every year I come here I say if he’s not the best coach he’s one of them,’’ Rivers said. If Rivers was trying to send a message to Bulls management for his longtime friend and former assistant, mission accomplished. Too bad on the court Rivers also sent a message. Specifically, the student isn’t ready to be the master just yet. The loss to the Clippers was the second one this season, as the Bulls dropped to 4-9 against the Western Conference. They can thank a defensive meltdown in the first quarter in which they allowed the Clippers (3015) to score a season-high 41 points, mainly behind 7-for-8 shooting from beyond the 3-point line. The Bulls (21-21) did cut the lead to single digits late in the third, but Darren Collison ran off seven points to squash the comeback. The Clippers were led by Blake AP photo Griffin’s 26 points and 13 rebounds, while the Bulls got 22 from Carlos Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin drives to the basket against the Bulls’ Mike Dunleavy in the first half Friday at the United Center.

NEW YORK – Carmelo Anthony scored a career-high and franchise-record 62 points, the most at the current Madison Square Garden, and the New York Knicks beat the Charlotte Bobcats, 125-96, on Friday night to stop a fivegame losing streak. Anthony made 23 of 35 shots, one when he leapt from halfcourt to beat the halftime buzzer, and Carmelo even added 13 re- Anthony bounds in the NBA’s highest-scoring performance this season. Anthony had 56 after three quarters, bettering Kevin Durant’s previous season high of 54, and stayed in for the first few minutes of the fourth to break Bernard King’s Knicks record of 60 points and Kobe Bryant’s arena record of 61, set five years ago. It was easily the highlight of the season for Anthony, on pace to miss the playoffs for the first time in his career and facing frequent questions about his future with the team as he heads into free agency this summer. That was all on hold for one night, the focus simply on Anthony’s amazing scoring. He easily passed his previous career best of 50 points and possibly could’ve even passed 70 or more had the game been close. Instead, he checked out for good after breaking the records when he banked in a short jumper with 7:24 to play.


Most players confident in security for Olympics By MARK LAZERUS Niklas Hjalmarsson knows there are security concerns in Sochi for the Olympics. He knows there have been deadly bombings in Volgograd, about 600 miles northeast of Sochi, and that the militant group taking credit has threatened a “surprise” for Sochi. He knows Sochi is near the volatile North Caucasus region. But when Hjalmarsson, his dad and his brother – all of whom are going to Russia next month – talk about the Olympics, they don’t focus on the concerns surrounding the Games, but rather the excitement. “I haven’t really been read-

ing into that as much as some other guys, maybe,” Hjalmarsson said. “But obviously, you’re aware of it. I’m trusting the security they’re going to have there, and I think there’s no doubts for me, personally, going there. If people stop going because of threats like that, I think the terrorists are going to win.” But for many fans and athletes, fear has overtaken anticipation as the Games draw near. The United States even plans to have two warships in the Black Sea – the body of water on which the resort town of Sochi sits – at the ready to evacuate American officials and athletes in the event of a terrorist attack. And the NHL will have extra security for its players in

Next for the Hawks Winnipeg at Hawks, 6 p.m. Sunday, CSN, AM-720 Russia. Phoenix Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith told reporters this week “it’s not worth it” to take his family with him to Sochi, and players around the league have echoed the sentiment. However, most players are remaining cautiously optimistic, including the 10 Blackhawks making the trip. “Obviously, we know what happened, right?” Marian Hos-

sa, who’ll play for Slovakia, said of the bombings. “But maybe the awareness will be even higher because of that, and the security’s going to be even tighter, from what I heard. I’m sure they’re going to make sure everything’s going to be secured really well.” Hossa’s family is not going to Sochi, but he said that’s because it’s too difficult logistically with his two young daughters, one of them a 2-month-old. That’s the same reason Patrick Sharp is going solo. Patrick Kane, meanwhile, is bringing his mother, one of his sisters and his girlfriend. “They understand what’s going on,” Kane said. “It’s their choice to go over there, and they wanted to. I’ll take the sup-

port, for sure.” Kane and Hossa said their coaches had sent out emails explaining what to expect in Sochi, and that lengthy security measures for fans – friends and family included – were mentioned. Russian President Vladimir Putin said Jan. 17 that officials “will try to make sure that the security measures aren’t too intrusive or visible, and that they won’t put pressure on the athletes, guests and journalists.” With bombings in the region, blatant threats on the Games, and a massive hunt on for so-called “Black Widows” who may be looking to avenge the deaths of their husbands or other family members, the players – just like the 200,000-

plus other expected visitors to Sochi – can only hope those security measures are effective. As Team Canada coach Mike Babcock said, he’s going to worry about hockey, and let those in charge of security worry about security. “You hear it,” Kane said of the threats. “You’re obviously going to hear different things and read different articles. To be honest with you, if I’m worried about that, my head’s in the wrong area. I have to worry about going over and trying to play the game, and doing as well as I can for my country. You hear different stuff, and obviously you’re going to be scared at first and think a little bit about it. And you hope everything gets figured out.”



Hockey has arrived at Dodger Stadium

Brent avoids prison, gets 180 days in jail

By GREG BEACHAM The Associated Press LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Kings and the Anaheim Ducks are skating on solid ice at Dodger Stadium. Southern California’s NHL teams held separate practices under cloudy skies in Chavez Ravine on Friday, testing the ice sheet for their landmark outdoor game. The temperature was significantly lower than on the recent 80-degree days leading up to Saturday’s meeting in the first warm-weather outdoor game in NHL history. The Los Angeles weather was practically ideal for this unlikely outdoor event – as long as no rain fell. “This is the crown jewel for hockey in Southern California,” Ducks defenseman Ben Lovejoy said. “We both live in a great part of the world, and this will be a great showcase for how far hockey has come in this area.” The rest of the preparations for the outdoor game also neared completion, including a cordon of palm trees just behind the open center-field

fence. There’s a ball hockey court between the mound and the backstop, while a beach volleyball court is in left field and a performance stage in right. The boards, benches and glass were trucked in from the Winter Classic in Ann Arbor, Mich., but the ice has been built up patiently over the last 10 days. The league’s ice-making crew covered the sheet in a heat-reflecting blanket during the day and worked through the night to establish a game-worthy surface. NHL facilities guru Dan Craig’s improbable ice sheet actually has been among the smoothest aspects of this strange chapter in the league’s expansion of its outdoor slate this season. While Southern California’s growing hockey fan base embraced the novelty of the concept, the league overpriced tickets for the event, forcing reductions to avoid the embarrassment of a non-sellout. But the hiccups likely will be forgotten when fans get a look at the ice in the middle of baseball’s third-oldest active park.

DALLAS – Former Dallas Cowboys player Josh Brent avoided prison Friday and instead was sentenced to 180 days in jail and 10 years of probation for a drunken car crash that killed his friend and teammate, Jerry Brown. Brent was convicted W e d n e s d a y o f i n t o x i c ation manslaughter for the December 2012 crash on a suburban Dallas highway that killed Brown, who was a passenger in Brent’s car. Brent could have been sentenced to up to 20 years in prison. He also was fined $10,000. Brent, 25, closed his eyes when the judge read the jury’s verdict. He was kept in custody after the hearing. One of his attorneys, Kevin Brooks, described the former defensive tackle as “somber.” “I’m really kind of overwhelmed with the results,” Brooks said. “It’s kind of what we’ve been fighting for from Day One. I’m happy for Josh. Josh is still sad and grieving, and that’s some-

thing he’s going to carry with him the rest of his life.” Brent’s family members and supporters cried and hugged as the courtroom emptied after the hearing. His mother, LaTasha Brent, spoke briefly as she left the courthouse, saying she was there to support her son. Brown’s mother, Stacey Jackson, wasn’t in the courtroom when the verdict was read. She publicly forgave Brent, and said during Thursday’s sentencing proceedings: “He’s still responsible, but you can’t go on in life holding a grudge. We all make mistakes.” The group Mothers Against Drunk Driving, whose headquarters isn’t far from the spot where Brent crashed, said in a statement that it was “shocked and appalled” by the athlete’s sentence. “This punishment sends the message that it’s OK to drink and drive – but it’s absolutely not,” MADD said. Brent and Brown, a linebacker on the practice squad, also played together at the University of Illinois and were close friends.

Nadal stops Federer again



at Charlotte 6 p.m. CSN/ NBATV AM-1000

MELBOURNE, Australia – The way Rafael Nadal managed to somehow retrieve a forehand midway through the second set shocked even Roger Federer, who has been on the receiving end of the Spaniard’s unbelievable shots more than anyone else in Grand Slams. It was a tipping point in their Australian Open semifinal. Federer had lost the first-set tiebreaker but was still throwing his whole arsenal at Nadal. At 15-30 in the sixth game of the second set, Federer thought he’d wrong-footed Nadal with a volley deep into the left corner. Nadal lunged for a desperate forehand, swinging just as the ball was about to bounce for the second time and angling it back over the net. Federer, in good position but not expecting he’d need to play another shot, framed a volley. It gave Nadal a breakpoint, and he quickly broke Federer for the first time in the match. He completed his 23rd win in 33 head-to-heads, and ninth in 11 Grand Slam matches, 7-6 (4), 6-3, 6-3, in 2 hours and 24 minutes against the 17-time major winner. A win over another Swiss, No. 8-seeded Stan Wawrinka, in Sunday’s final, would give Nadal a 14th Grand Slam title and make him the first man to win all four majors at least twice in the Open era. Nadal missed the 2013 Australian Open during a seven-month layoff for illness and a knee injury, but returned to win the French open and U.S. Open among his 10 titles for the season and finished the year at No. 1. He won the Australian Open in 2009, beating Federer in the final, and lost in a fiveset, 5-hour, 53-minute 2012 final to Novak Djokovic after ousting Federer in the semis. In other years, he’s struggled with injuries – it’s the only Grand Slam tournament he hasn’t won at least twice. “It’s really, really emotional for me to be back on this court, and to

Rafael Nadal celebrates Friday after defeating Roger Federer in a semifinal match at the Australian Open in Melbourne. be able to play another final – tonight I played the best match of the tournament,” he said, elaborating later: “Very emotional moments in the Rod Laver Arena in the past, very emotional moments this year especially because [this] is the Grand Slam that I really had more problems in my career.” Injuries kept him out of the 2006 Australian Open and hampered his progress in the 2010 and ’11 quarterfinals. “Lots of years I didn’t have a chance to play in this tournament that I really love so much with the perfect conditions,” he said. “So it is very special to have the chance to be in the final here again.” By reaching his first major final with a win over Tomas Berdych on Thursday night, Wawrinka ensured he’d replace Federer as Switzerland’s highest-ranked player for the first time. But the 32-year-old Federer is confident of returning to his old winning ways, expecting some coaching from Stefan Edberg and continued improvement in his fitness to help after a slump in 2013, when he didn’t reach any of the major finals for the first time in 11 years.


“I still think my best tennis is only ahead of me now,” he said. Nadal is now second on the list of players reaching Grand Slam finals, joining Ivan Lendl on 19 – Federer leads the list with 24. Another Grand Slam title would lift Nadal to equal second on the alltime list with Pete Sampras, who was in the crowd for the match. Nadal has struggled with a blister on the palm of his left hand in his last two matches, but he removed the heavy tape that affected his serve in his quarterfinal win over Grigor Dimitrov and replaced it with one square of adhesive tape. “The blister is OK,” Nadal said. “The problem ... is the position of the blister, it’s difficult.” But, he added, he didn’t feel any pain. He certainly didn’t show it if he did. He resisted just about everything Federer threw at him, scrambling to keep balls in play that usually would be winners. Federer served and volleyed, he played with good touch, he played drop shots, he tried everything – even complaining to the chair umpire about Nadal’s loud grunting after the tiebreaker – but his 50 resulting unforced errors doubled the number by his rival.

Gary Reece stands inside Heartland Cabinet Supply in Crystal Lake. After leading the Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce for nearly 7 years, Reece plans to focus on his business.

Chamber leader exits Reece to focus on his business, sleep in a little By BRETT ROWLAND CRYSTAL LAKE – After working 70 to 80 hour weeks for the past 6 1/2 years running a business and leading the Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce, Gary Reece is ready to sleep in. Reece left his post as president of the Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce last week to focus on Heartland Cabinet Supply, his custom cabinetry business. Instead of waking about 4 a.m., he now gets up at 5:45 a.m. “I’m really liking that,” he said. But he still works Saturdays. In the wake of the recession, Heartland Cabinet Supply has been busy. Things started to pick up in 2011 and 2012 and took off in 2013. “Business is out of control,” Reece said. With encouragement from his mentor, the late Bill Dwyer, Reece put his name in for the chamber job when Bob Blazier retired. In 2007, Reece got the gig, not knowing exactly what he was getting into or what the economy had in store. “I’m the kind of guy who needs a challenge,” Reece said. His first challenge was to tackle the organization’s finances. “Gary brought a lot to the chamber,” said Brian Coli, a chamber board member and owner of Georgio’s Chicago Pizzeria & Pub in Crystal Lake and South Barrington. “When he came to the chamber, the finances weren’t great. But he hit the ground running and has really had a big impact on the finances by building up healthy balances.” With backing from the board, he cut costs, limited budget increases

During his tenure, the chamber’s building was renovated, its website was redesigned three times (a fourth is in progress) and the organization’s newsletter was overhauled so instead of losing $18,000 to $20,000 a year, it brought in more than $10,000 a year. All the while, Reece served as the public face of Crystal Lake’s business community, shook hands, gave speeches, posed for pictures at ribbon-cutting ceremonies, met with politicians and civic leaders and welcomed new businesses to town. Reece also oversaw the implementation of a new database system and accounting system, developed a governmental affairs policy, held the line on membership fee increases

and boosted retention. The chamber’s member retention rate is near 85 percent, he said. Much of this took place during the Great Recession, a fact that makes Reece’s work with the chamber more remarkable. Reece also met quarterly with other area chamber leaders to collaborate and share ideas. “He has truly been an inspiration to all of us,” said Rita Slawek, president of the Huntley Area Chamber of Commerce. “Gary brought the knowledge of a business owner, the patience of a saint and the courage to think outside the box.” The Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce has launched a search for Reece’s successor. Coli said the organization wants the position filled by April 1.

WASHINGTON – After 20 years, the nutrition facts label on the back of food packages is getting a makeover. Knowledge about nutrition has evolved since the early 1990s, and the Food and Drug Administration says the labels need to reflect that. Nutritionists and other health experts have their own wish list for label changes. The number of calories should be more prominent, they say, and the amount of added sugar and percentage of whole wheat in the food should be included. They also want more clarity on serving sizes. “There’s a feeling that nutrition labels haven’t been as effective as they should be,” says Michael Jacobson of the Center for Science in the Public Interest. “When you look at the label, there are roughly two dozen numbers of substances that people aren’t intuitively familiar with.” For example, he says, most of the nutrients are listed in grams, a basic unit of the metric system. Jacobson says people don’t really understand what a gram is. Michael Taylor, the FDA’s deputy commissioner for foods, says 20 years ago “there was a big focus on fat, and fat undifferentiated.” Since

Nutrition labels on the back of food packages may soon become easier to read. The Food and Drug Administration says knowledge about nutrition has evolved over the last 20 years, and the labels need to reflect that. then, health providers have focused more on calories and warned people away from saturated and trans fats rather than all fats. Trans fats were separated out on the label in 2006. “The food environment has changed and our dietary guidance has changed,” says Taylor, who was at the agency in the early 1990s when the FDA first introduced the label at the behest of Congress. “It’s important to keep this updated so what is

iconic doesn’t become a relic.” The FDA has sent guidelines for the new labels to the White House, but Taylor would not estimate when they might be released. The FDA has been working on the issue for a decade, he said. There’s evidence that more people are reading the labels in recent years.

NEW YORK – The frigid winter of 2014 is setting the price of natural gas on fire. Record amounts of natural gas are being burned for heat and electricity – and it’s so cold that drillers are struggling to produce enough to keep up with the high demand. Friday, the price rose within a whisper of $5 per 1,000 cubic feet, the highest level since June 2010. It’s gained 25 percent in the past two weeks. Natural gas is used by half the nation’s households for heating, making it the most important heating fuel. Natural gas and electric customers are sure to see somewhat higher rates in the coming months, but shouldn’t experience sharp increases because natural gas and electric utilities often employ financial strategies that protect residential customers from price spikes.

CINCINNATI – Procter & Gamble’s second-quarter net income fell 16 percent as the world’s largest consumer products maker faced a tough comparison with year ago results, the stronger dollar and nearly flat sales globally. But its adjusted earnings beat Wall Street expectations and the company reiterated its 2014 guidance. Its shares rose 3 percent in morning trading. The Cincinnati-based company, whose products range from Tide detergent to Crest toothpaste and Gillette razors, is in the midst of a turnaround plan that includes focusing on its most profitable core businesses and cutting costs to save $10 billion by fiscal 2016. Net income for the three months ended Dec. 31 fell to $3.43 billion, or $1.18 per share. That’s down from $4.06 billion, or $1.39 per share, last year. The results a year ago included a 21 cent per share gain related to acquiring the rest of its joint venture in Iberia.



CHICAGO – The Illinois Department of Employment Security said the state’s unemployment rate dropped in December for a fourth straight month. But the 8.6 percent rate is still one of the highest in the country. The department said Friday the state lost a net 3,200 jobs in December. Officials blamed brutal cold for decreases in, among other areas, construction jobs. But Department Director Jay Rowell said Illinois’ economy remains on track for moderate expansion. The unemployment rate fell from 8.7 percent in November. The national unemployment rate for December was 6.7 percent. That’s the lowest figure since late 2008. Construction jobs were reduced by 4,500 in December. Government, labor and hospitality and educational and health services employers also all cut jobs.

Union membership holds steady By SAM HANANEL The Associated Press WASHINGTON – The nation’s union membership held steady at 11.3 percent last year, but losses among state and government workers suggest an ominous trend for the future of organized labor. In a turnabout, there now are slightly more union members working for private firms than in government, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday. That reverses a five-year trend. Although the rate of membership among all workers didn’t budge, the overall number of union members grew slightly, rising about 162,000 to nearly 14.5 million. Unions added about 282,000 new members in the private sector as the economy improved. But that partly was offset by the loss of 118,000 members in the public sector, as state and local governments and public school districts continued to face financial pressure from shrinking budgets. For decades, the growth of union workers in government has helped compensate for steep losses in manufac-


ship has been steadily declining for decades. The share of workers belonging to unions peaked in the 1950s at about 30 percent and dropped to about 20 percent by 1983. The modest increase in union ranks last year follows a steep decline in 2012 that saw the union membership rate sink to its lowest level since the 1930s. The increased unionization among private firms took place largely in construction, health care and the auto industry, as the economy rebounded to create about 2.2 million new jobs. “It could be that we’ve hit bottom and things are going to turn around,” said John Schmitt, a senior economist with the Center for Economic and Policy Research in Washington. “The other possibility is that it’s just a blip and we’ll get back to a slow steady decline in private sector unionization.” Among full-time wage and salary workers, union members in 2013 earned a median salary of $950 a week, compared with $750 for nonunion workers. New York continued to have the highest union membership rate at 24.4 percent, while North Carolina had the lowest rate at 3 percent.

turing, construction and other private industries where unions once thrived. The public sector union membership rate of 35 percent remains more than five times higher than that of private sector workers, at 6.7 percent. But budget pressures have meant layoffs and hiring freezes for many state and local governments. Public unions also have been on the defensive in Wisconsin, Michigan and other states where Republican governors have pushed measures to limit union bargaining rights. Public sector unions saw their biggest membership losses last year among workers in social assistance programs, administrative and support services, public school teachers and state university employees, according to BLS data. In Wisconsin, union membership in the public sector fell from 53.4 percent in 2011 to just 37.6 percent in 2013. “This suggests that the erosion of public sector union coverage reflects the new anti-collective bargaining policies implemented in several states,” said Lawrence Mishel, president of the liberal-leaning Economic Policy Institute. The overall rate of union member-

cessed or prepared. Now, some sugars are listed separately among the ingredients and some are not. It may be difficult for the FDA to figure out how to calculate added sugars, however. Food manufacturers are adding naturally occurring sugars to their products so they can label them as natural – but the nutrition content is no different. Other suggestions from health advocates: • Add the percentage


DAVOS, Switzerland – European Central Bank president Mario Draghi laid out the hope that the ailing eurozone economic recovery will pick up steam over the coming months. He told delegates Friday at the World Economic Forum a stream of “solid” survey data are pointing to better times ahead for a region that’s grappled with a debt crisis, recession and sky-high unemployment over the past few years. Recent surveys of purchasing managers and consumers have indicated growing buoyancy. “The hard data are not however as uniformly good as the survey data,” said Draghi, who has been widely credited for helping to douse the debt crisis fires. “In a sense, this behavior reflects very similar behavior that took place in the United States a year, a year and a half ago.” The U.S. has achieved so-called escape velocity that is bearing down on unemployment and prompted the Federal Reserve to start reducing its extraordinary monetary stimulus.

Continued from page E1 An Agriculture Department study said 42 percent of working adults used the panel always or most of the time in 2009 and 2010, up from 34 percent two years earlier. Older adults were more likely to use it. The revised label is expected to make the calorie listing more prominent, and Regina Hildwine of the Grocery Manufacturers Association said that could be useful to consumers. Her group represents the nation’s largest food companies. Hildwine said the FDA also has suggested that it may be appropriate to remove the “calories from fat” declaration on the label. It’s not yet clear what other changes the FDA could decide on. Nutrition advocates are hoping the agency adds a line for sugars and syrups that are not naturally occurring in foods and drinks and are added when they are pro-

of whole wheat to the label. Many manufacturers will label products “whole wheat” when there is really only a small percentage of it in the food. • Clearer measurements. Jacobson of the CSPI and others have suggested that the FDA use teaspoons, as well as grams, for added sugars. • Serving sizes that make sense. There’s no easy answer, but health experts say single-size servings that are clearly meant to be eaten in one sitting will often list two or three servings on the label, making

the calorie and other nutrient information deceptive. The FDA said last year that it may add another column to the labels, listing nutrition information per serving and per container. The agency also may adjust recommended serving sizes for some foods. • Package-front labeling. Beyond the panel on the back, nutrition experts have pushed for labels on the package front for certain nutrients so consumers can see them more easily. The FDA said several years ago it would issue guidelines for front of pack labeling but later said it would hold off to see if the industry created its own labels. Tracy Fox, a Washington-based nutrition consultant, said clearer information is needed to balance the billions of dollars a year the food industry spends on food marketing. “There’s a lot of information there, it’s messy,” she said. “There may be a way to call out certain things and put them in context.”

JPMorgan Chase almost doubled Chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon’s pay for 2013. On Friday, the bank said Dimon will receive total compensation of $20 million in 2013, consisting of $18.5 million in stock options and a base salary of $1.5 million.

JPMorgan boosts CEO Dimon’s pay By STEVE ROTHWELL The Associated Press NEW YORK – JPMorgan Chase almost doubled Chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon’s pay for 2013, rewarding the executive for settling probes against the bank. Dimon will receive total compensation of $20 million in 2013, consisting of $18.5 million in stock options and a base salary of $1.5 million, the bank said in a statement Friday. That compares with total compensation of $11.5 million a year earlier, down from $23 million in each of the previous two years. The bank says it took several factors into account when deciding Dimon’s pay, including the “sustained long-term performance” of the bank, gains in market share and customer satisfaction as well as his handling of the legal issues facing the lender. JPMorgan agreed in No-

vember to pay $13 billion in a settlement with the Department of Justice and acknowledged it misled investors about the quality of risky mortgage-backed securities ahead of the 2008 financial crisis. The bank was among the major lenders that sold mortgage-backed securities that plunged in value when the housing market collapsed in 2006 and 2007. Earlier this month, the bank reached an agreement to pay $1.7 billion to settle criminal charges stemming from its failure to report its concerns about Wall Street swindler Bernard Madoff’s private investment service. JPMorgan’s stock price climbed $14.51, or 33 percent, to $58.48 in 2013, a bigger gain than Standard & Poor’s 500 index, which rose almost 30 percent. The bank’s net income fell 16 percent to $17.9 billion in 2013, from $21.3 billion a year earlier.

Now we come to the secondary, tie-breaking questions in my Christmas Competition. 3. Look at only the North hand. a. Partner opens one spade and West passes. What would you respond? Two diamonds. This hand is worth game, so start where you live. Do not respond two clubs. b. Partner opens three clubs and West passes. What would you do? Five clubs. You have no idea how well the opponents can do in a major. Yes, you would like to make a lead-directing diamond bid, but that would give East more room to enter the auction. c. West opens one heart. What would you call? Double. Not ideal without a fourth spade, but you should get into the auction. Pass is close, though. 4. Look at only the West hand. a. Partner opens one heart and South passes. What would you bid? Four hearts. This time, you do not know how well the

opponents can do in a minor. Your hand is a “weak freak,” so make them guess. b. Partner opens one spade, South overcalls ive diamonds, and everyone passes. What would you lead? The spade king. This is not without risk, but you might need to shift to a red suit at trick two. Second choice, just behind, is a low spade. c. North opens one diamond, East doubles, and South passes. What would you advance? Two hearts. With the double it in the majors, you are worth the jump.

TODAY - You can take risks without fear of failure in order to meet your goals. You will be sensitive, intuitive and focused in the year ahead. You are now ready to market your skills and ideas. Others will easily recognize the worth of your endeavors. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Don’t rock the boat today. You will have difficulty seeing eye-to-eye with others, so take some time to think about your future. Evaluate your motives honestly. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Travel with the goal of acquiring knowledge or information that will be of use to you. A romantic experience will uplift you at just the right moment. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Financial opportunities will arise today. Develop your ideas and put your plans into action. Secret activities will have a very positive outcome. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Don’t be fooled into thinking that your personal life is stable or not subject to swift change. Prepare to be interrogated about your whereabouts. Your input at a logistical meeting will be much appreciated. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Now is the time to implement dietary changes and a new exercise routine. It would also be a good idea to take measures to alleviate the stress in your life. Don’t let anyone try to take advantage of you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- It’s a good day to tie up loose ends on lingering projects. If you get involved in something that gives you purpose, you will gain respect for your convictions. You will likely attract an admirer. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You must keep a tight lid on your emotions today. Since you do not have all the facts, don’t act hastily. A positive attitude will yield the best results. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Interactions may lead to romantic encounters. If you are already in a relationship, work to deepen the connection. Do a thorough reconnaissance about something or someone of interest to you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Re-evaluate how you want to proceed with the rest of your life. Consider your current position and focus on personal goals. Don’t talk yourself out of following your dreams. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You can have a good day as long as you avoid jumping to conclusions. Romance is possible if you aren’t too possessive. If you stay positive and pleasant, you’ll have fun and get results. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You may be confused if you are out of the loop about what is going on in your circle. Don’t let such a setback get to you. An older individual can help to improve your position. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Get involved in your community or volunteer for something that matters to you. New friendships can be made if you are outspoken at an event.

Teeth in a Day Procedure with All-On-Four Dental Implants ‘‘Like having a second set of permanent teeth’’ Dr. M. Shakeel Licensed General Dentist

Dr. C. Matesi Licensed General Dentist

By Dr. M. Shakeel LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO NOT FULLY ENJOY EACH AND EVERY REASON TO SMILE If you find yourself avoiding family photos, first impressions or even savoring your favorite foods, Dr. Shakeel’s unique dental implant techniques offer the solutions you’ve been searching for. The All-On-Four Dental Implants procedure - Teeth in a Day - offers simple, reliable and long-lasting results for patients who are missing teeth or experiencing the frustrations of loose, decayed and broken teeth. Though advanced technology and innovative techniques, dental implants are easier to place, less invasive and have a successful rate of over 95%.

WHY DR. SHAKEEL? With years of experience in the field, Dr. Shakeel is a highly respected expert in the placement and restoration of dental implants from a single missing tooth to the entire upper and lower arch. His background in dental implant surgery provides a strong foundation that ensures medically safe and aesthetically beautiful results. Furthermore, Dr. Shakeel received extensive hands-on training and assisted with numerous successful cases, under the guidance of the pioneer of the All-on-Four procedure, Dr. Paulo Malo of Portugal (2010). Few in the dental industry possess his mastery of the combined surgical and prosthetic demands of successful implant dentistry, especially executing the All-On-Four procedure. IDEAL PATIENTS The All-On-Four technique is for patients dissatisfied with their current dentures or for those who have

no practical alternatives for saving their remaining teeth. In most all cases, patients lacking the bone volume required to support traditional implants are able to enjoy the many benefits of a permanent solution to missing teeth through the All-OnFour procedure. THE TEETH IN A DAY PROCESS This amazing technique enables you to achieve a beautiful, new Smile in a Day by utilizing four implants placed in each arch to which the replacement teeth are securely attached. Gentle oral sedation assures that you receive maximum safety and comfort throughout the procedure. In addition, the entire process, including any necessary extractions, can be completed in one day with minimal recovery time.The result is a fully functional set of teeth that look and feel natural, improves your self-confidence and allows you to once again experience the foods and activities you enjoy most.

DISCOVER THE BENEFITS • Requires minimal recovery • Reduces overall cost when compared to single implants • Eliminates the need for bone grafting in most all cases • Allows for easy maintenance through proper oral hygiene • Restores the ability to eat all types of foods • Relieves the many frustrations of removable appliances • Ensures long-term results with the potential to last a lifetime • Renews a youthful appearance through bone level stabilization • Creates a whole new smile in just one day • Enhances self-confidence and overall quality of life For more information on Teeth in a Day or on All-On-Four Dental Implants, contact:

Dr. Shakeel Signature Dental Group 815-455-3300

All procedures are done under conscious sedation to ensure patient comfort and safety. Dr Shakeel and Dr Sinha hold anesthesia permits in the state of Illinois.
