Despite subzero temperatures, Danny Bobrow of Port Barrington takes a walk along Prairie Trail for exercise Monday in Crystal Lake. Subzero temperatures are expected through Tuesday morning with wind chills ranging from 30 to 50 below zero. “It’s really not too bad with the right gear,” Bobrow said.

Salt ineffective in frigid conditions By JEFF ENGELHARDT jengelhardt@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – Projected dangerously low wind chills led to another day of closures across the county. After calling off classes Monday, schools again extended winter break for students by one more day by canceling classes scheduled for Tuesday. The wind chill warning is in effect until noon Tuesday, as wind chills are expected to reach 35 to 45 below zero. Keeping roads cleared also has been difficult. Record low temperatures rubbed salt in the proverbial wound Monday by rendering traditional de-icing methods useless. Public works crews in municipalities around McHenry County had no answer for the 40-degree-below-zero wind chills that plagued the area Monday and caused dozens of vehicles to slip off roads into

ditches. The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office reported there have been 170 motorist assists countywide the last two days for drivers who went off the road, stalled and even ran out of gas. Victor Ramirez, director of public works for Crystal Lake, said crews surrendered salting roads as it was completely ineffective and tried to attack the problem with aggressive de-icing chemicals that still had a hard time cracking through the ice. Vince Olsen, internal services superintendent for Algonquin, has run into the same problem. “The salt is just not working right now so we’re blading ice off where we can and only putting down salt in some areas,” he said. “We’ve probably gone through close to 1,500 tons of salt already this year.”

GENERAL INFORMATION: 815-459-4040

The gaseous state of the male gender This week I have decided to pursue what at times could be considered a resonant and even explosive topic: We will be talking about the common and prevalent bodily function of flatulence. Now, whenever we talk about things like this, we must be discreet and proper. We must act like adults and avoid trivializing or making light of something normal and natural and beautiful. We will not chuckle or snicker, nor will we allow our minds to drift to juvenile contemplations or youthful silliness. If you feel you can consider this topic under those guidelines, you may continue. However, if the explicit and distinct sound of the expulsion of gaseous vapor from the interior of a human body into the general environment prompts in you even the hint of a grin, then perhaps you are not quite ready. Maybe you should skip this column and move right to the weather page where the mention of the effect of a high pressure system with diverging winds might not seem so humorous. Since this subject has so many fas-

JUST HUMOR ME Michael Penkava cinating facets and my column space is limited, I am going to focus on the aspect of the challenges of being a vaporous man. I don’t know if you have noticed, but the male gender seems to have achieved a more gaseous state than the female. Why is that so, you wonder? Well, there is a scientific explanation for this. It has to do with what I call the “Theory of Saturated Cellular Carbonation.” Here’s how this works … When men are in the process of dating and courting their future wives, they exercise tremendous self-control of this bodily function. Despite their natural gaseous nature, they suppress the operation of this process. The gas, having nowhere to go, is then internalized into various corporal systems. It is forced into the bloodstream, which becomes somewhat carbonated and a bit toxic. It is

then squeezed into tiny capillaries and carried to millions of individual cells, where its latent energy is temporarily housed. Thus, the man who is in the process of courtship also is in the process of internally infusing the potential power of those franks and beans he ate at his future in-laws barbecue. We all know there are limits to everything. Eventually the man’s cells become carbonatically saturated with gaseous vapor. This saturation point usually happens shortly after the honeymoon. It is then when the long, slow, lifelong elimination process begins to take place. This would explain the sudden realization on the part of the female that there is something significantly different about the man she just married. What the woman must appreciate is that the man is not the perpetrator of social crudeness or personal impropriety, but that he is simply a victim of not only a normal biological process, but also that of the spirit of self-sacrifice he demonstrated in his willingness to carbonate the very

cells of his existence to prove his love during the wooing process. So there you have it. Sure, scientific explanations can be cold and aloof. After all, we are talking about processes and systems and states of matter. But with understanding comes purpose. With purpose comes appreciation. And with appreciation comes love. Even though a wife might be startled by a sudden trumpeting sound, or taken aback by an oddly odoriferous scent, she must always remember the thought behind it. For in the spirit of unselfishness and self-denial, the man who has proven his love in the past is now simply confirming it in the present. So, wives, please forgive us if we appear to be hopeless romantics … we just can’t help it.

N.J. works to curb sex trafficking before Super Bowl The ASSOCIATED PRESS EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Law enforcement agents in New Jersey have redoubled efforts to fight what they worry could be one of the biggest menaces to come with next month’s Super Bowl: sex trafficking.

and much debate over how much sex trafficking increases during a Super Bowl or other large sporting events, but it’s been enough of a concern to prompt New Jersey and previous Super Bowl host cities to pay attention to it. Danielle Douglas, a speaker and advocate who identifies herself as a sex-trafficking survivor, said any major sporting event attracts sex traffickers looking to make money.

Judge: Chicago’s gun sales ban unconstitutional By HERBERT G. McCANN The Associated Press CHICAGO – A federal judge on Monday overturned Chicago’s ban on the sale of firearms, ruling that the ordinances aimed at reducing gun violence are unconstitutional. U.S. District Judge Edmond E. Chang said in his ruling that while the government has a duty to protect

its citizens, it’s also obligated to protect constitutional rights, including the right to keep and bear arms for self-defense. However, Chang said he would temporarily stay the effects of his ruling, meaning the ordinances can stand while the city decides whether to appeal. Broderick Drew, a spokesman for Chicago’s law department, did not immediately return telephone calls for

comment. The decision is just the latest to attack what were some of the toughest gun-control laws in the nation. In 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Chicago’s long-standing gun ban. And last year, Illinois legislators were forced by a federal appeals court to adopt a law allowing residents to carry concealed weapons in Illinois, the only state that still banned the

practice. The resulting state law largely stripped city and officials of surrounding Cook County of their authority to regulate guns, which especially irked officials in Chicago, where residents had to apply for concealed-carry permits through the police chief. Chang’s decision came in a lawsuit filed by the Illinois Association of Firearms Retailers and three Chicago residents. The judge noted

Chicago’s ban covers not only federally licensed firearms dealers, but also gifts among family members, all in the name of reducing gun violence. Chang wrote that the nation’s third-largest city “goes too far in outright banning legal buyers and legal dealers from engaging in lawful acquisitions and lawful sales of firearms, and at the same time the evidence does not

support that the complete ban sufficiently furthers the purposes that the ordinance tries to serve.” Chicago, which last year had more homicides than any city in the nation, still has an assault weapons ban. City officials have long acknowledged the ban on gun sales has been ineffective, because sales are legal in some surrounding suburbs and states.

The Supreme Court on Monday put same-sex marriages on hold in Utah, at least while a federal appeals court more fully considers the issue.

Supreme Court puts Utah same-sex marriage on hold The ASSOCIATED PRESS SALT LAKE CITY – Gay couples in Utah were thrown into legal limbo Monday as the U.S. Supreme Court put a halt to same-sex marriages in the state, turning jubilation to doubt just weeks after a judge’s ruling sent more than a thousand couples rushing to get married. The justices did not rule on the merits of the case or on same-sex marriage bans in general, leaving both sides confident they’ll ultimately win. The decision stays in effect while the Denver-based 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals considers the long-term question of whether gay couples have a right to wed in Utah. For those couples who just got married – or were planning their nuptials – the latest twist in the legal battle clouds what was seen as a cause for celebration. “It feels like we are second-class citizens during the stay,” said Moudi Sbeity, who is waiting to get married until the legal process plays out. “There’s also the fear of the unknown of what might come next.” Sbeity and partner Derek Kitchen are among three couples who brought the Utah

lawsuit that led to the surprise Dec. 20 ruling by U.S. District Judge Robert Shelby, who said the state’s ban on same-sex marriage violated gay and lesbian couples’ constitutional rights. State officials praised Monday’s decision to put a hold on things, saying it should have come earlier. Two previous courts turned down their request for a stay. “Clearly, the stay should have been granted with the original District Court decision in order to have avoided the uncertainty created by this unprecedented change,” Gov. Gary Herbert said. The Supreme Court’s unsigned order did not indicate anyone dissented from the decision to halt same-sex marriages in Utah. Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who handles emergency appeals from Utah and the five other states in the 10th Circuit, turned the matter over to the entire court. Many believe the Supreme Court will settle the issue for good. Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes said the court’s decision indicates an interest in Utah’s case, and he hopes the justices issue a final answer. Others doubt the high court will step in any time soon. In June, the justices decided not to weigh in on the

constitutionality of defining marriage as being between a man and woman, relying instead on a technical legal argument to resolve the issue in California and clear the way for same-sex marriage in the state. The ruling Monday doesn’t necessarily give any indication of how the justices would rule on the issue, said Douglas NeJaime, a professor of law at the University of California, Irvine. He believes justices want the issue to work its way through normal legal channels before they weigh in. Meanwhile, the state is trying to determine whether the marriages that have already taken place are still valid. Marriage licenses issued in 2008 in California prior to the passage of the state’s same-sex marriage ban were eventually upheld by the state supreme court. But marriages licenses issued in San Francisco in 2004 after mayor Gavin Newsom told city officials to grant them were later invalidated by the state supreme court. That leads NeJaime to believe a court will need to rule on Utah’s marriages. If the Utah attorney general challenges the validity of the licenses as expected, that might lead to several months of limbo for the couples, he said.

optimistic, that the new year will bring a renewed spirit of cooperation to this chamber,” said Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., in the first remarks of the year on the Senate floor. Within moments, he pivoted, accusing Republicans of “never ending obstruction” to President Barack Obama’s proposals over the past five years. A test vote on the unemployment bill – the year’s first showdown – was postponed at the last minute until Tuesday morning at the behest of Republicans, who noted that more than a dozen lawmakers had been unable to return to Washington because of bad weather. Even then the rhetoric was heated. “It’s transparent this is a political exercise,” said Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, moments before Reid agreed to the delay.

CHICAGO – About 4,500 requests for concealed-carry permits were submitted the first day Illinois’ online application system was open to the public, officials said Monday. The applications submitted Sunday during the system’s first 24 hours of operation brought the total permit requests to more than 11,000, said Monique Bond, a spokeswoman for the Illinois State Police. The other 6,500 applications came in recent weeks, as the state allowed firearms instructors to apply for permits early in order to help test the online application system. Detailed information on what areas of the state saw the most applicants wasn’t yet available, Bond said. “Right now we’re pleased with the ease of the process so far,” she said. Bond called the number of applicants a “pretty healthy number.” In July, Illinois became the last U.S. state to approve legislation allowing residents to carry concealed

Still, it could be months before anyone receives a concealed-carry permit. State Police have up to 90 days to approve or deny applicants, provided their applications are complete and fingerprints are submitted in an electronic format. If an applicant’s fingerprints aren’t submitted, the State Police will have an additional 30 days to complete a manual background check. Law enforcement agencies can object to a license being issued within 30 days of an application being submitted. Early interest in concealed-carry permits varied greatly in different parts of the state. Southern Illinois’ Marion County hadn’t received a single application Sunday, the sheriff’s office said. But more than 2,500 applications were submitted during that time in Cook County, said Cara Smith, a spokeswoman for the Cook County Sheriff’s Department. Smith said that the numbers likely would have been higher if not for the deep freeze that was commanding so much attention.

weapons. Those who are 21 or older, have a valid Firearm Owners Identification Card, complete a 16-hour training course and pass a background check can obtain a concealed-carry permit for a fee. The five-year permits cost $150 for residents and $300 for nonresidents. The law bans carrying concealed firearms in places such as schools, child-care facilities, courthouses, public transportation, college and professional sports stadiums and in establishments where alcohol sales make up more than 50 percent of a business’s receipts. Illinois lawmakers have projected that there would be 350,000 to 400,000 applications for concealed-carry permits in the first year of the law. Currently, applications can only be submitted online. But Bond said that by July, a written application will be available to residents. “This is the most expeditious and efficient process,” she said of the online system.

Gov. Pat Quinn has issued a disaster declaration covering the entire state, and state transportation officials have advised avoiding nonessential travel, and with many schools and other local governments and even businesses closed, that should be easier to do. People who must travel should let someone know where they’re going, the route they plan to take, and their schedule for the day, so people know where they will be and can find them. Information about state conditions also is available online at GettingAroundIllinois. com. It’s also advisable to make sure your car has plenty of gas, leave dressed for the weather and that you have a good pair of boots on your feet or in your car. Extreme weather conditions of all kinds mean that we have to look after not only ourselves, but also our neighbors. Check on people if you think they might be struggling and help those you can safely help. Animals are susceptible to the cold as well. Just because your dog or cat has a fur coat doesn’t mean they won’t suffer. Please allow your pet indoors most of the day to prevent them from freezing. Soon enough, we will emerge from the “polar vortex” that has enveloped our area. Until then, stay safe, look out for your pets and neighbors, and remember that it will be but a few short months before the spring.

Military pension trim That didn’t take long: President Obama’s signature on a hard-won House-Senate budget deal was barely dry before members of Congress from both parties began falling all over themselves to undo one of its provisions. We refer to the 1 percentage-point reduction in military pension annual cost-of-living increases, which provides $6 billion in savings over 10 years, intended, in part, to restore badly needed funds for current national defense. Bowing to the powerful military retiree lobby, Senate Democrat Jeanne Shaheen, N.H., and House Republicans Martha Roby, Ala., and Michael G. Fitzpatrick, Pa., have introduced bills that would replace the pension trim with, respectively, higher corporate tax collections or a reduction in child tax credits for low-income families. Opponents of the provision decry its purported unfairness to those who have served at great risk in the past, and they assert that it will harm recruitment and retention in the future. The facts suggest otherwise. For one thing, the cut is an exceedingly modest one on a pension plan that is already far more generous than private-sector equivalents. For someone who enlisted at age 18 and retired as an Army sergeant first class at 38, lifetime retirement pay would decline from $1.734 million to $1.626 million, according to House Budget Committee staff. And that $1.626 million would still be filled out with generous military health coverage and earnings for working in the civilian sector, which most military retirees do. This is not “breaking faith with the promise that was made to these folks that have waged war for this nation for the last 12 years,” as the president of the Military Officers Association of America, Vice Adm. Norbert Ryan, said on the PBS NewsHour on Thursday. It is a small shift in resources toward training and equipping those who might have to defend us in the future. Rhetoric notwithstanding, many of the warfighters who bear the biggest combat burdens get no pension at all; only one-eighth of enlisted personnel serve the 20 years necessary to qualify, according to a 2011 report by the Defense Business Board. As these numbers imply, most recruits didn’t join for the pension. It’s impossible to say whether either the Democratic or Republican proposals to undo the pension trim will pass. Like civilian entitlements, military retirement is overdue for deeper reforms. And it does the men and women of our armed forces no The Washington Post dishonor to say so.

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Amati should be gone To the Editor: Kudos to Northwest Herald reporter Kevin Craver for keeping Woodstock police Sgt. Chip Amati’s slap on the wrist in the news. Craver is absolutely correct that anyone else would have been arrested, indicted and tried for their crimes. However, there are other very guilty people involved in addition to Amati. The Woodstock mayor should have told the police chief to get rid of this bad apple. The chief only had to tell the Police Commission to get rid of him, and he would have been fired. These commissions support their chief in circumstances such as this. Regardless, the Police Commission should have fired him based on the evidence. Forget his good record because that excuse wouldn’t have worked for anyone else. Finally, the public’s last line of defense from behavior such as this, especially from a public official, the state’s attorney, should have indicted Amati, but instead chose to look the other way. So, mayor, chief, Police Commission and state’s attorney, shame on all of you. Thanks to you, the good citizens of Woodstock are going to be checking the name

tags of the police they come into contact with very carefully, especially if they have young girls in the house, to make certain the officer they’re dealing with isn’t Amati. Wouldn’t you? Nice to be a police sergeant in Woodstock, where it would appear, as Craver indicated, you’re bulletproof. Edward J. Haerter Harvard

Colorado, won’t you think of the kids? Seeing what is going on in Colorado is enough to make any self-respecting member of society sit down and scream “Heavens!” and demand smelling salts – well, not smelling salts. Something less mind-altering. Toast. It’s legal there now, if you’re 21 or older. Yes, it’s legal for recreational use, not only medicinal; no longer administered only to those in pain as it used to be but willy-nilly to anyone who asks. Look, I understand that sometimes we as a society come across substances that we decide are enough fun for us to use as adults that we ought to make them legal. But what about the kids? Whenever anything is legal for one person to use, you might as well assume that it is legal for everyone, especially if the only thing keeping some folks away is the porous membrane of an age restriction.

VIEWS Alexandra Petri I have to admit, I’ve been on the wrong side of this one. Like many young columnists, I experimented with the stuff when I was younger. And I made a right fool of myself. Not hip enough to try it during high school or stumble woolly-tongued through any English presentations, I had to wait for college for my turn. But then I leaped into it with the same kind of abandon anyone with a not yet fully developed prefrontal cortex leaps into anything. How well I know the slippery slope. You start socially, surrounded by friends, but then you keep going. Oh, the music I listened to under the influence. The phone calls I made. I fell into the delusion that the things I was saying

8THE FIRST AMENDMENT

and thinking were interesting. The trouble with this delusion is that it persists for only a few hours and then you get very hungry and feel a little sick to your stomach. (Otherwise, you could make a good living off it and give TED talks.) My point is that the substance is terrible. It ought to be sequestered. It leads to all kinds of regrettable behaviors. One time, after overindulging, I tried to write a paper. I turned it in and it got a decent grade. I’m sorry, this is not a good story to illustrate my point. In fact, most of my stories are not going to be good stories to illustrate the point I am making, which is that young people should not be allowed to experiment with the substance that I experimented with as a young person because they will grow up and not reach their full potential, just as I did. Er, didn’t. Well, you see what I’m saying.

Look, I see what is happening in Colorado now, and I quail. The impact of this substance on your cognitive development. The impairment it produces in drivers. The easy payoff it provides in the form of cheap momentary pleasures, offering satisfaction in the present at the cost of anything more subtle. I understand its appeal. Everyone understands its appeal. That’s why it should still be banned. Yes, there’s a whole social culture around its use. Yes, it’s often portrayed in the media as fun. Yes, there are plenty of responsible adults who enjoy it without doing any harm. But the cost is just too high. We need to bring back the laws to the way they were before. We need to bring back the 18th Amendment. What were you talking about? • Alexandra Petri writes the ComPost blog at washingtonpost. com.

Senate confirms Iraq calls on residents to expel al-Qaida Yellen to chair Federal Reserve The ASSOCIATED PRESS

By ALAN FRAM The Associated Press WASHINGTON – The Senate confirmed Janet Yellen on Monday as the first woman to lead the Federal Reserve, elevating an advocate of fighting unemployment and a backer of the central bank’s efforts to spur the economy with low interest rates and massive bond purchases. Yellen, 67, will replace Ben Bernanke, who is stepping down after serving as chairman for eight years dominated by the Great Recession and the Fed’s efforts to combat it. Senators confirmed her by 56-26, with numerous absences caused by airline flight delays forced by arctic temperatures around much of the country. All 45 voting Democrats were joined by 11 Republicans in supporting Yellen, while 26 Republicans voted “no.” Vice chair of the Fed since 2010, Yellen begins her fouryear term as leader of the century-old bank on Feb. 1. With the economy rebounding from the depths of the recession but only modestly so far, many economists expect her to focus on how to nurture growth without putting it into overdrive, which could risk fueling inflation. “The big debate will be when the Fed should tighten and how much, rather than when to step on the gas pedal and how hard,” predicted Bill Cheney, chief economist for John Hancock Financial Services, who envisions a growing economy this year. Under Bernanke, the Fed has driven short-term inter-

est rates down to near zero and flushed money into the economy with huge bond purchases, which it has just started to ease. Yellen, a strong Bernanke ally, has supported those policies and is expected to continue them until concrete signs emerge of sustained improvement of the economy and job market. In a written statement, President Barack Obama said Yellen’s approval means “the American people will have a fierce champion” who will protect them. “I am confident that Janet will stand up for American workers, protect consumers, foster the stability of our financial system and help keep our economy growing for years to come,” Obama said. Lobbyists for the banking and financial services sectors issued statements pledging to work with Yellen. Both industries have led a fight to water down restrictions imposed by Obama’s 2010 law overhauling how the nation’s financial system is regulated. A native of Brooklyn, N.Y., Yellen previously headed the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, chaired President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers and has been an economics professor at the University of California at Berkeley. Yellen, who as an academic has focused on unemployment and its causes, is considered a “dove” who wants the Fed more focused on creating jobs because unemployment is high and inflation is low. “Hawks” on these issues prefer a stronger emphasis on preventing inflation.

BAGHDAD – Iraq’s prime minister urged Fallujah residents on Monday to expel al-Qaida militants to avoid an all-out battle in the besieged city, a sign that the government could be paving the way for an imminent military push in an attempt to rout hard-line Sunni insurgents challenging its territorial control over the western approaches to Baghdad. The militants’ seizure of Fallujah and parts of nearby Ramadi, once bloody battlegrounds for U.S. troops, has marked the most direct challenge to Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki’s government since the departure of American forces two years ago. Both the U.S. and its longtime rival Iran view the escalating conflict with alarm, with neither wanting to see al-Qaida take firmer root inside Iraq. Washington has ruled out sending in American troops but recently delivered dozens of Hellfire missiles to help bolster Iraqi forces. Tehran signaled Monday that it is willing to follow suit, saying it is ready to help Iraq battle al-Qaida “terrorists” by sending mili-

It is unclear whether Baghdad would take up the Iranian offer, made by Gen. Mohammad Hejazi, the Iranian Army deputy chief-of-staff, in comments to Iranian state media. He ruled out the sending of ground troops across the border. Any direct Iranian help would exacerbate sectarian tensions fueling Iraq’s conflict, as Iraqi Sunnis accuse

Tehran of backing what they say are their Shiite-led government’s unfair policies against them. Iran has the power to sway al-Maliki’s political fortunes ahead of upcoming elections through its deep ties to Iraq’s major Shiite factions, which have dominated government offices and security forces since the U.S.-led invasion toppled Iran’s arch-foe Saddam Hussein in 2003.

have surrounded Fallujah, which was overrun by fighters from al-Qaida’s Iraq branch last week. The city is just 40 miles west of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad. It is located in the vast Sunni-dominated and largely desert province of Anbar, which borders Syria, where al-Qaida-linked groups are among the most formidable fighters among the rebels trying to topple President Bashar Assad. Al-Maliki did not say how he expects Fallujah residents and pro-government tribesmen to push out the militants. In his message, broadcast over state TV, he also urged Iraqi troops to avoid targeting residential areas. Dozens of families have begun fleeing Fallujah to nearby towns, crammed in cars loaded with their belongings. Ahmed Ali, an Iraq researcher at the Washington-based Institute for the Study of War, cautioned that a military assault on Fallujah would likely lead to civilian casualties and “possibly invoke other violent tribal responses.” It could also give al-Qaida a chance to launch attacks in other parts of the country given the concentration of forces in Anbar.

PHILADELPHIA – A judge on Monday told a Roman Catholic church official that she already has signed an arrest warrant that she would issue if he violates the term of his release on electronic monitoring following the reversal of his conviction in the priest sexabuse scandal. Common Pleas Judge M. Teresa Sarmina also told 63-year-old Monsignor William Lynn to report to a probation

Monday’s brief court hearing was the first public appearance for Lynn since he was released from prison on Friday after serving 18 months of a three- to six-year prison term for felony child endangerment. The pre-signed arrest warrant is standard for defendants released on bail. Several supporters were there to see the priest, who lost 80 pounds during his time in prison.

Salt quickly Quinn issues disaster declaration, urges people to stay off roads • ILLINOIS depleting Continued from page A1 • SALT Continued from page A1 The arctic blast is the latest in a winter that has drained resources much quicker than past years. Ramirez said the city has already had 24 “callout” events for plowing and salting. The average for a full winter is roughly 30 to 35, he said. The “call-outs” have also lasted longer as some of the winter events – including New’s Year Eve – required a 24-hour shift split between two crews. Salt is quickly depleting with more than 80 percent of the city’s supply already used. “Getting salt is becoming a real issue,” Ramirez said. “We’re looking at alternate suppliers but so is everyone else.” The expensive winter will not get much better when the spring comes. Ramirez said this deep cold would likely mean more potholes and water man breaks could occur as roads thaw. “That’s always a concern when you have this cold of weather and the thawing starts,” Ramirez said. “It’s going to be an expensive winter.” To try to help keep roads clear, the Illinois Department of Transportation had 1,755 trucks assigned to snow duty and 3,700 employees working across the state, according to a news release.

attacks while shoveling snow Sunday. Officials said the bitterly cold temperatures on Monday likely caused two trains to hit what are called bumping posts as they pulled into a downtown station, one with enough force to send six people to area hospitals to be treated for minor injuries. Monique Bond, a spokeswoman for the Illinois State Police, said there were no reports of traffic fatalities, despite hundreds of incidents in which vehicles spun out of control, rolled into ditches or overturned, leaving thousands of motorists stranded for as long as eight hours before they were rescued. In Chicago, officials said efforts to find homeless people and convince them to go to shelters or warming buses appeared to be working. The Cook County medical examiner’s office said there were no reports of any exposure deaths. Though not the coldest day in Illinois history, in some parts of the state, including Chicago, Monday was the coldest Jan. 6 since records started being kept in 1870, according to the National Weather Service. By Monday morning, temperatures at O’Hare International Airport dropped to 16 degrees below zero – two degrees below Chicago’s previous record for the date, set in 1894 and matched in 1988, said Charles Mott, a weather service meteorologist. The wind chill made it feel like

A whirlpool of frigid, dense air known as a “polar vortex” descended into much of the U.S. and plunged temperatures to record lows. it was more than 40 degrees below zero. He said to the north in Rockford, temperatures had fallen to 18 degrees below zero. “This is some of the most extreme weather we’ve seen in Chicago in decades,” Mayor Rahm Emanuel said at an afternoon press briefing. Around the state, the winds, snow and cold added up to conditions treacherous enough that airlines canceled 1,600 flights at O’Hare Monday. Across town at Midway International Airport, airlines canceled some 85 more.

On the roadways, the biggest rescue operation came at the intersection of Interstates 57 and 70 near Effingham in southern Illinois when over the course of about six hours, workers plucked 375 vehicles and six semitractor trailers from the snow, with the larger trucks pulled out by a 10-ton Illinois National Guard vehicle. Meanwhile, the Southern Illinois men’s basketball team was forced to spend the night on the floor of a central Illinois church after the team’s bus got stuck in snowdrifts on Interstate 57. “There were accidents

everywhere because of the ice,” said Giovanni Lucero, a commercial painter who drove to downtown Chicago Monday morning. “It was like ‘Ice Road Truckers’ out there,” he said, referring to a television show. Gov. Pat Quinn issued a disaster declaration and, along with various law enforcement agencies, urged people to stay off the roads rather than deal with snow drifts and ice-covered pavement that had snarled interstates and shut down all together many roads. Some school districts, including Chicago’s, said schools

would remain closed on Tuesday. Quinn’s office said the governor had instructed most state employees to stay home, except for those in “critical government functions.” And the weather prompted the state’s Department of Corrections to put eight prisons on some form of lockdown. In Chicago, even those who stayed out of their vehicles found themselves victims of the weather, including people on a Metra train. It was clear in the city that many people hadn’t even ventured outside to get to work. There was very little traffic on the normally busy streets and only a few people on the sidewalks, looking pudgy from all the layers of clothes and a bit like bank robbers with their hats pulled down low over their heads and scarves pulled over their faces. Jeffery Davis, 51, decided that between a heater at his house that didn’t work so well and drafty windows that seemed to invite cold air inside he was better off sitting in a warm doughnut shop for a full three hours to wait for the nearby library where he works to open its doors. “I never remember it ever being this cold,” said Davis, who put on two pairs of pants, “at least three sweatshirts,” two hats, “the thickest socks you’d probably ever find” and boots to make the train trip downtown from his South Side home. “I’m flabbergasted.”

Experts suggest regularly scheduled maintenance on heating, air systems • BUSY Continued from page A1 have run the winter weather gamut, from no heat to frozen pipes to broken water heaters. “It’s been about a week that volume has been increasing, but in the past few days

it’s been skyrocketing. My guys are working 12, 14 hours a day,” Sperando said. The company is not alone. Nearby Althoff Industries, which also does heating, plumbing and air conditioning work, is seeing a similar surge in calls, director of residential services Blake Wilt-

shire said. “We’re kind of the firefighters of our industry. We go out when emergencies happen,” Wiltshire said. Both experts said many heating, air conditioning and plumbing emergencies wouldn’t happen if more people had their systems regular-

ly maintained. Wiltshire equated a home furnace and air conditioner to an automobile – regular maintenance not only helps ensure peak efficiency, but also lowers the odds of facing one of life’s little surprises at the worst possible time. Furnaces, air conditioning

and pipes are easy to forget because they’re “out of sight and out of mind,” Sperando said. Sperando and Wiltshire said the customers who get their climate-control systems regularly checked rarely end up with emergencies in extreme temperatures. “By and large, our contract

customers have far fewer furnace breakdowns,” Wiltshire said. Wiltshire said his company advises getting the furnace and air conditioner checked twice a year. The furnace is checked before winter, and again with the air conditioner before summer.

KEEP HYDRANTS CLEAR OF SNOW CRYSTAL LAKE – The Crystal Lake Fire Department is encouraging residents to “adopt” a fire hydrant as snow and ice slow down response times. Locating and connecting to fire hydrants quickly is critical as fires can double in size for every minute that is lost, according to a press release from the department. With snow and ice covering many hydrants, it can become hard for firefighters to gain access. Fire officials are asking residents to locate nearby hydrants and clear snow from the area. Snow needs to be removed at least two feet around each hydrant and to the street in order to make room for a clear hose connection. As firefighters respond to more car crashes, medical emergencies and fires because of the wintry conditions, it makes it impossible to clear the nearly 3,000 hydrants located in the city.

Woodstock landlord sued Tenants: Eviction papers were retaliation for public outcry By SHAWN SHINNEMAN sshinneman@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – A Woodstock couple who led a push for tenant rights have entered a legal dispute with their landlord, who they say served them eviction papers as retaliation for their public outcry.

According to the couple’s lawyer, one other tenant has filed a lawsuit and several others could be on the way. In a lawsuit against Woodstock-based Advantage Plus Inc., Bill Zieske and Denise Halverson allege property damage from neglect of needs, consumer fraud, breach of the lease and as-

sault, among other claims. The 61-page defense and counterclaim came in response to a forcible entry and detainer action filed by Advantage Plus after the couple didn’t comply with two eviction notices, according to the lawsuit. Advantage Plus was moving to evict the couple because of failure to pay rent or

late fees, for using the property as a business office and for interfering with showing the property, according to the lawsuit. Zieske and Halverson deny those claims. Advantage Plus President Mary Brown declined to answer specific questions about the lawsuit when reached by

phone, but called back with a statement. “We at Advantage Plus Inc. deny Zieske’s allegations and have no further comment at this time, as we are in litigation with this tenant,” she said. In the fall, the married

By JOSEPH BUSTOS jbustos@shawmedia.com With the deep freeze expected to continue until midday Tuesday, the state warned residents to be aware of the signs of hypothermia and frostbite. A wind chill warning from the National Weather Service is in effect until noon Tuesday, as wind chills are expected to reach 35 to 45 degrees below zero. “It is important to recognize the signs of hypothermia and frostbite, how to treat these conditions and what you can do to avoid them,” Dr. LaMar Hasbrouck, the director of the state’s department of Public Health, said in a news release. Hypothermia occurs when a person’s body temperature drops to 95 degrees or less. It can be fatal if not detected and treated properly. Signs of hypothermia include forgetfulness, drowsiness, slurred speech, change in appearance, weak pulse, slow heartbeat, very

People should seek medical help if they see these symptoms. “Everyone should take precautions against hypothermia, but infants and the elderly are particularly at risk and should be monitored closely,” Hasbrouck said. Frostbite is caused by bitterly cold temperatures and typically affects exposed areas of the face, ears, wrists, hands and feet, according to the news release. Skin

that is frostbitten is whitish and stiff, and the area will feel numb. The public health department recommends that people wear several layers of lightweight clothing to keep warm. People should cover their heads, and wear mittens rather than gloves. Wearing warm leg coverings and heavy socks, or multiple pairs of lightweight socks is useful. The ears, nose, chin and forehead are most susceptible to frostbite, according to the public health department.

Local social organizations and law enforcement agencies were ready to react to the needs of the county’s most vulnerable residents Monday. As an arctic blast sent McHenry County into a deep freeze, agencies worked to keep the most at-risk residents – among them, the elderly, ailing and homeless – warm and well fed. A couple county churches opened Monday to serve as warming centers, said Meghan Powell-Filler, PADS behavioral health residential manager. PADS was providing its normal services and was working with other area organizations to provide transportation to keep McHenry County residents from the cold.

State says to watch for signs of hypothermia and frostbite

McHENRY – With a combined aquatic and recreation center out of reach financially, McHenry plans on focusing in on a recreation facility that could take a load off the city’s municipal center and provide a revenue generating fitness center. The McHenry City Council reached the consensus at a Committee of the Whole meeting Monday evening after discussing the results of

a feasibility study conducted by Elgin-based Dewberry Architects. The study showed that the $4.5 million the city has put aside over the years and the estimated profit the combined center would make would not be enough to cover the cost of constructing and financing a combined facility. With budget concerns on the horizon – in approving another flat levy last month, council members said city staff would have to tighten

their belts to make ends meet – Alderwoman Geri Condon said she couldn’t justify dipping into the city’s general fund to cover an expanded project.

“As far as the aquatic center, it’s not dead,” Alderman Andy Glab said. “If we go to the rec center, it’s not dead. It might be the next phase, but again we have to look right now at what we can afford.” For now, the council decided to move forward with the recreation side of the facility, charging staff to investigate what it can build with the money it has plus any profit the facility would generate. A recreation center meets

“our most urgent need,” Mayor Sue Low said. By moving the city’s parks and recreation department out of the city’s municipal center, it would free up space for the crowded police department, Deputy City Administrator Bill Hobson said. A recreation center also would provide a consolidated space for year-round programming, Alderman Robert Peterson said. Parks and recreation

McHenry County Undersheriff Andy Zinke said the sheriff’s office was ready to quickly respond to “check for well-being” calls Monday, but the office had only received a couple of such calls as of midafternoon. Zinke urged residents to be good neighbors and check on anyone they know who might have mobility issues or limited communication options.

“In this day and age, you don’t believe it, but there are still people out there without telephones and sometimes without heat,” Zinke said. “We need to make sure they get the attention they need.” Residents in need of assistance are encouraged to call the United Way’s community help line at 2-1-1 or the McHenry County Crisis Line at 800-892-8900.

Lawsuit alleges harassment and assault • LANDLORD Continued from page B1 couple helped gather a group of current and former tenants to talk of similar experiences at a Woodstock City Council meeting. The group spoke of leaky roofs and faulty home appliances, but also of intimidation and neglect from their landlord. Many, but not all, named Advantage Plus. The city passed a property maintenance ordinance in October, a measure billed as a “tool” for combating law bending landlords. “These people are victims,” said Dominic Buttitta, the couple’s attorney. “I took on this case because this needs to be brought to an

end.” Buttitta said he’s “in conversations with multiple tenants and former tenants” about pursuing legal action against Woodstock landlords for violating Illinois tenant law. He said the case between Zieske, Halverson and Advantage Plus represents a more extreme situation. “This has been intentional, willful actions on behalf of the landlord against my client,” Buttitta said. The lawsuit alleges that problems present when the couple moved into their home at 307 W. Jackson St. – including a leaky roof and faulty deck – have not been fixed more than nine months later. The suit claims the re-

lationship soured further after Zieske and Halverson brought the issues to the public eye. It alleges that Brown stalked Zieske and filed a police report that the opposite was happening. It also alleges Brown harassed the couple and, on more than one occasion, assaulted them. No charges were brought after an Aug. 21 incident, the only time Woodstock police were alerted to any incident of assault involving the two sides. On that day, Halverson told police that Brown put her hand on her shoulder and shoved her, but she showed no signs of battery, and a witness had left the scene before the alleged incident, Police Chief Robert Lowen said.

Dewberry Architects also conducted an audit of the barn and highlighted in its final report how Streamwood

transformed the Hoosier Grove Barn, built in 1888, into a banquet and meeting room rental facility. Condon was “really intrigued” by the concept, she said. While Peterson said he wasn’t keen on creating something that would compete with local businesses, he could see the city hiring a firm to run the banquet hall.

DeKALB: 32ND ANNUAL FARM SHOW

Event a chance to learn, socialize Local business Demonstrations, sessions the draw at annual event

owners upbeat, vow to rebuild

By DOUG OLESON doleson@shawmedia.com DeKALB – Drones and agriculture are not something you normally associate together. That pairing is one of many sessions awaiting those who attend the 32nd annual Northern Illinois Farm Show, which is set for Wednesday and Thursday at the Northern Illinois University Convocation Center in DeKalb. Although the basic format of the show is the same as past years, farm show director Amy LaTessa said there are a few differences. “There are some new sessions, and the [start and end times] are different,” she said. “Plus, we are extending the private pesticide testing for both days instead of just one, because it’s been so popular.” Admission to the show, hosted by IDEAg Group LLC and local ag-related groups, is free, but parking is $5. “January and February are really good for farm shows because farmers can’t really do a lot in the fields,” IDEAg marketing director Samantha Kaplan said. “It’s a good time to look at new equipment and make plans.” “It’s a time when farmers are available,” agreed Dean Johnson, a resource conservationist at the DeKalb County Water and Soil Conservation District. “A lot of farmers like to go. They are done with harvest and are ready to relax and socialize. It just gives them an opportunity to talk. They can tie in a social activity with a learning one.” The shows, he said, are also beneficial to his organization. “We’re not selling a product, but it’s good for us because it allows us to contact farmers and just keep up our connections with them,” he said.

ST. CHARLES – Theresa Winters described her business, Ameliorate Massage in St. Charles, as her favorite place to be. She had been at 826 S. Third St. for nearly four years. “I wanted to have this office, and I was so happy to have it,” she said. “I was able to make it exactly the way I wanted it, a beautiful, peaceful sanctuary that would welcome everyone in.” On Sunday, Winters learned that the building that housed her business – along with two other businesses and a residential unit – had been destroyed by fire. Although disappointed, Winters said Monday that she lives by a belief that “all things work together for good,” and the longtime St. Charles resident vows to open a new business in the city. The St. Charles Fire Department reported it responded to a call for an odor investigation at 5:38 a.m. Sunday. Fire Chief Joe Schelstreet said Monday that personnel arrived at 5:43 a.m. and saw fire in the building’s basement, which was moving upstairs. The fire was extinguished in three hours, he said. The building’s residents were able to escape, and there were no injuries to them or to firefighters, Schelstreet said. Schelstreet said a fire report is being prepared, and it is expected to be done in about a week. He said although there are theories about what might have caused the fire, officials are not yet ready to release information about the investigation. He did say it was not considered a suspicious fire at this time. “It did spread quickly … and we’re focusing on a couple of things,” Schelstreet said. He said damage was estimated at $350,000 to the structure and $100,000 to the contents. He said it was a particular challenge for firefighters because of heavy snow that was falling, along with low temperatures. He thanked the Red Cross for assisting the renters, The Salvation Army for providing canteens and School District 303 for providing warming buses.

The property actually included two addresses – 826 S. Third St. and 828 S. Third St., St. Charles. In addition to Ameliorate Massage, the building housed a business called FEET by Karen Reflexology, run by Karen Heftman, as well as a hair salon, The Snippery. There also were tenants who lived in the upstairs area. Heftman said she had operated FEET by Karen since June 2013, subletting her area from Winters. She was at the scene of the fire on Sunday, and she said she felt grateful that nobody was hurt. On Saturday, she said, she was working at the business. “It could have happened at any time,” she said. Heftman said her business was a dream, and she said she found a warmth and a connection with Winters. She said Sunday was “a sad day.” She said everything had been “completely demolished.” But, like Winters, she said she would look to reopen her business at a new location. Though she said she would prefer to open a business in St. Charles, she is a Hampshire-area resident and might consider that area as well. Heftman said she made connections in the Tri-Cities area, at LivingWell and the Holmstad, and had just become a member of the St. Charles Chamber of Commerce. She said she was touched by the outpouring of well wishes and support, calling it “more than I could have imagined.” “I felt pretty popular in such a short time there,” she said. Winters called the location “a great spot.” She was out of town at the time of the fire, but she said she was saddened when she saw a photo taken by a neighbor as officials were doing their duty of clearing the scene. “My awning, it was personally handcrafted for me, and that was one of the last things the bulldozer ended up bringing down,” she said. “It was such an eye-catcher, beautiful and attractive.” But, she said, she is hoping a new location will present itself. “The healing will continue,” Winters said.

Reggis, a basset hound-boxer mix, is surrounded by blankets Monday in a kennel at Animal House Shelter in Huntley. The boiler used to heat the concrete floor at the shelter failed Friday, just ahead of the arctic blast. Black Diamond Plumbing donated its services to get the heat back on. Community members responded by writing checks and donating bedding and blankets to keep the dogs and cats warm.

Shelter rescued Community, local business rally to help nonprofit Animal House Shelter

By BRETT ROWLAND browland@shawmedia.com HUNTLEY – Community members and a Crystal Lake business helped rescue Animal House Shelter in Huntley this weekend after one of the nonprofit organization’s heaters failed Friday. The boiler used to heat the pet shelter’s concrete floors stopped working as the area prepared for record cold temperatures, Animal House Shelter Director Cynthia Ritter said. Although the boiler used to heat the air continued working, Ritter said, the shelter had to scramble to get bedding for 150 dogs and 100 cats at the facility. Technicians from Black Diamond Plumbing and Mechanical in Crystal Lake found the boiler was beyond repair. As word of the shelter’s situation began to spread, local residents donated blankets and other bedding for the animals and turned up with cash and checks to help replace the boiler. “It was overwhelming,” Ritter said. “Friday and Saturday, we had

What: A no-kill shelter for dogs and cats Where: 13005 Ernesti Road, Huntley Phone: 847-961-5541 Website: animalhouseshelter.com

a constant flow of people coming in with donations and supplies.” Hearing the nonprofit was short on cash, Black Diamond President Rick Sperando decided to donate the company’s services. Black Diamond workers had the replacement boiler working and the temperature rising by 5 p.m. Saturday. Donations from the community will be used to offset the cost of the boiler, according to an email from the shelter. “It was wonderful they were able to get it going so quickly before the extreme cold hit,” Ritter said. Donating the company’s services was an easy decision for Sperando. “We’re also animal lovers,” he said.

Sperando said his children and several Black Diamond employees had adopted pets from the shelter. He estimated the company spent about $4,000 on the job, but added, “You can’t put a price on goodwill.” Ritter said the boiler may have gone out because it was working extra hard to combat the facility’s poor insulation. She estimated it would cost about $20,000 to properly re-insulate the shelter. That expense comes on top of $40,000 the shelter recently paid for a new roof. While losing a boiler in winter is never good, Ritter said the ordeal had “almost been a blessing in disguise.” “It has raised awareness of the shelter and the plight of homeless animals,” she said. Ritter praised the community’s reaction and Black Diamond’s donation. “It’s been wonderful to see the response, it has literally been bringing tears of joy to our eyes to see how much people care,” she said. “We couldn’t have asked for more. Those animals are so cozy right now.”

Workers seize 2 bosses at French Goodyear site By LORI HINNANT The Associated Press PARIS – Monday’s meeting in northern French city of Amiens was not going well. As farm tires were rolled in to block the doorway, two Goodyear managers were trapped in a conference room with angry French workers who were demanding more money in exchange for the inevitable loss of their jobs. The morning “meeting” dragged on into the night, and the union said it was settling in for the long haul – with the two executives still captive inside. Goodyear has tried to shutter the plant in Amiens for five years without success. Its latest attempt was met Monday with a “bossnapping” – a French negotiating tactic that had largely faded away after the height of the economic crisis in 2009. More theater than actual threat, it aims to grab management’s attention – by grabbing management. Late Monday, one of the prisoners decried the tactic as degrading and humiliating. The Amiens plant has an especially contentious past. Goodyear’s hopes to close it have been thwarted by violent protests with huge bonfires, government concerns and France’s prolonged layoff procedures. Now, the union is willing to accept the inevitable loss of jobs – but at a cost. “Clearly it was no longer possible to keep fighting for

WOODSTOCK – Chicagobased Westward Management announced it has bought Howe Real Estate Services Inc., a property management company in Woodstock, to expand its business in the northwest suburbs. Howe Real Estate Services, which was founded in 1992 and has about 20 employees, serves homeowner, condominium and town home associations throughout McHenry, Lake, Kane and DuPage counties. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. “This acquisition is key to both our growth and diversification strategies,” Travis Taylor, a managing partner at Westward, said in a news release. “From a growth perspective, the purchase is in line with our strategy of complementing our organic growth by completing selected strategic acquisitions. Howe, in addition, mirrors our values and intense dedication to customer service and will help us continue to grow in their current service areas and beyond.” Howe Real Estate Services founder Rich Howe plans to retire. “After more than 20 years and an exhaustive search, I couldn’t ask for a more closely aligned partner,” he said in a statement. Westward Management, which has offices in Chicago and Denver, said Howe Real Estate Services “will continue to operate out of its headquarters in Woodstock, retain its staff and will be supported by Westward’s systems and personnel.”

Workers of the Goodyear tire factory gather Monday at the plant in Amiens, in northern France. Two Goodyear bosses, production manager Michel Dheilly and Human Resources Director Bernard Glesser, were blocked from leaving the plant Monday, with angry workers demanding more money in exchange for the inevitable loss of their jobs. our jobs,” Mickael Wamen, the union president, told LCI television. “So we decided to change tactics and fight for the largest compensation possible.” In exchange for freeing the bosses, they’re demanding an 80,000-euro ($108,000) severance package plus 2,500 euros ($3,400) for each year worked. Some journalists were allowed to enter the room where the managers were being held Monday. The atmosphere inside resembled a college dorm, with several employees laughing and cheering as others rolled a tractor tire into the doorway. “We’ve been stuck in

this room for three or four hours, and it’s out of the question that I respond to questions under pressure,” Bernard Glesser, the director of human resources, told journalists in a video posted on the French website Dailymotion by the Courrier Picard newspaper. Things got rowdier when Glesser continued, saying that, while he did not fear for his safety, the situation was “completely disagreeable” and he was being insulted and humiliated. “Crook!” one worker yelled. “You haven’t been humiliating us for seven years?” another shouted. A third worker handed

Glesser a portable urinal. The other manager being held was the plant’s head of production, Michel Dheilly. Evelyne Becker, a union representative, said the two were blocked from leaving after an especially difficult meeting with staff. Goodyear confirmed the two managers were being held against their will. “This kind of initiative, always to be condemned, is especially inopportune and counterproductive at a time when we should concentrate on the future of employees affected by the restructuring, after several years looking for a solution,” Goodyear said in a statement.

WASHINGTON – The Senate appeared ready Monday to confirm Janet Yellen as the first woman to lead the Federal Reserve, elevating an advocate of fighting unemployment and a backer of the central bank’s efforts to spur the economy with low interest rates and massive bond purchases. Yellen, 67, would replace Ben Bernanke, who is stepping down after serving as chairman for eight years that included the Great Recession and the Fed’s efforts to combat it. Vice chair of the Fed since 2010, Yellen would begin her four-year term as leader of the century-old bank Feb. 1. With the economy rebounding from the depths of the recession but only modestly so far, many economists expect her to focus on how to nurture growth without putting it into overdrive, which could risk fueling inflation. “The big debate will be when the Fed should tighten and how much, rather than when to step on the gas pedal and how hard,” predicted Bill Cheney, chief economist for John Hancock Financial Services, who envisions a growing economy this year.

RICHMOND-BURTON

Baseball can not paint over its past

As a man whose profession is based on precision, Crystal Lake artist John Hanley always appreciated the pitching style of Greg Maddux. Then, in the spring of 2009, the Cubs commissioned Hanley to paint a likeness of the pitcher who painted so many corners during his 23-year career. “Flawless mechanics,” said Hanley, a lifelong Cubs fan. “A master in the strike zone. And he didn’t panic. In and out, up and down, changing speeds.” The Cubs invited Hanley to Wrigley Field, where the team presented his painting of Maddux and Ferguson Jenkins to both pitchers during a pregame ceremony. The team retired the pitchers’ No. 31 alongside Nos. 10 (Ron Santo), 14 (Ernie Banks), 23 (Ryne Sandberg), 26 (Billy Williams) and 42 (Jackie Robinson). This week, Maddux is expected to join all of those players in the Hall of Fame. If only the rest of the new Hall of Fame class were so simple to decide. Listed at 6-feet tall and 195 pounds, Maddux relied on his command to vex the juiced-up stars of the Steroid Era. Many of those same stars join Maddux on the ballot for the Class of 2014, which will be announced at 1 p.m. Wednesday. This is where the painting gets messy. Which players were clean? Which players were dirty? What about the players in between, the big-muscled boppers who looked like cheaters but never were proved to be guilty?

R-B’S DRIVING FORCE Kaufman’s insatiable desire, willingness to work difficult to equal By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com RICHMOND – Sam Kaufman draws inspiration from any number of former or current basketball players with whom he has crossed paths. First, there is his father, Tom, a former player at NCAA Division I Northeastern University. There also is East Troy, Wis., coach Darryl Rayfield and his son Rion, who plays professional basketball in Denmark. And there are several

of the other top local players who work out at Hard 2 Guard in Spring Grove with Kaufman. Kaufman looks at successes of those he knows and strives someday to get there himself. “I’ve always been inspired because of my dad, and Darryl and Rion Rayfield,” said Kaufman, a 6-foot-4 junior forward for Richmond-Burton. “I get inspired by that kind of stuff. I hope to get to that point.” To hear Kaufman’s coaches speak about him, his type of insatiable desire

and willingness to work are difficult to equal. Kaufman has been a driving force for R-B, which at 10-3 is the area’s second-winningest team (behind 11-2 Crystal Lake South). “Not everybody’s willing to face things they don’t do very well,” R-B coach Brandon Creason said. “This past summer, Sam got better at what he wasn’t good at. His shot has come so far. There’s no magic trick as to why he’s playing so well.”

BCS NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHP: NO. 1 FLORIDA STATE 34, NO. 2 AUBURN 31

Winston leads FSU to final BCS title By RALPH D. RUSSO The Associated Press PASADENA, Calif. – Jameis Winston threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Kelvin Benjamin with 13 seconds left and No. 1 Florida State beat No. 2 Auburn, 34-31, to win the last BCS national championship game Monday night. Winston struggled much of the night but was near perfect when the Seminoles (14-0) needed it most, going 6 for 7 for 77 yards on the game-winning 80-yard drive. A pass interference penalty on Auburn’s Chris Davis gave Florida State a first-andgoal at the 2 and on the next play Winston hit his big receiver for the touchdown.

“I said this from Day 1 in spring ball. These kids are special,” coach Jimbo Fisher said. “This group never faltered. They wanted to be elite. They wanted to go to the top and there’s so much character in this group.” Tre Mason had given Auburn (12-2) a 31-27 lead with a 37-yard touchdown run with 1:19 left after Kermit Whitfield had put Florida State in the lead for the first time since the first quarter with a 100-yard kickoff return to make it 27-24 with 4:31 left. Mason ran for 195 yards. Winston was 20 for 35 for 237 yards and two fourth-quarter touchdown passes. Nick Marshall ran for a touchdown

and threw scoring passes to Mason and Melvin Ray in the first half, and Auburn led 21-13 after three quarters. Florida State’s All-America kicker Roberto Aguayo’s second field goal of the night accounted for the only third-quarter points for either team as both defenses took charge after a frenetic first half. The powerful Seminoles trailed by 18 points in the second quarter and 21-10 at halftime, but picked up momentum in the third quarter with solid defensive play and improvements by Winston, AP photo who was fighting a case of big-game jitFlorida State football coach Jimbo Fisher kisses The Coaches’ Trophy ters.

Rodman’s shenanigans have gone too far 7 ex-NBAers join him to play before N. Korean dictator A good amount of dumb people populate the planet. That might sound harsh, but it’s an evolutionary truth: Not everyone can be smart, in the same way that not everyone can be athletic or musical. Still, there is something very unsettling about the critical mass of dumb that has been reached by a group of former VIEWS NBA players Rick Morrissey scheduled to play a basketball game in North Korea for dictator Kim Jong-Un on Wednesday. We expect this kind of thing from ringleader Dennis Rodman, who will do anything to stay in the spotlight, even if it means hanging out with the leader of a brutal regime. But seven other former NBA players thought this was a good idea? The mind reels at the ignorance of Kenny Anderson, Vin Baker, Cliff Robinson, Charles Smith, Craig Hodges, Doug Christie and Sleepy Floyd, who reportedly will compete. The latest reports about Kim are all over the map – that he executed his uncle last month by “traditional means,” according to the New York Times, or by feeding him to 120 starving dogs with 300 officials watching, according to a China-associated Hong Kong newspaper. I’ll put my trust in the Times, which also reported that some of the uncle’s associates were executed by antiaircraft guns. Talk about bringing a pistol to a peashooter fight. Rodman’s relationship with the

On the farthest edge of reason, we’re being asked to put faith in the idea that Rodman & Co. can make U.S.-North Korea relations better. Some people are taking the approach that the idea is so crazy it just might work, but I’d prefer to let trained diplomats handle diplomacy and Rodman handle a Kardashian or two. I’m old-fashioned that way. “Dear Leader,” meanwhile, continues to rattle his saber. “The U.S. and South Korean war maniacs have deployed legions of equipment for a nuclear war in and around the Korean Peninsula and are going frantic in their military exercises for a nuclear war against the North,” he said in a speech last week. “This precipitates a critical situation where any accidental military skirmish may lead to an all-out war.” He added, “Should another war break out on this land, it will result in a deadly nuclear catastrophe and the United States will never be safe.” Sure, this kind of situation calls for Sleepy Floyd’s unique ability to tamp down international tensions.

BLACKHAWKS TO SOCHI

BULLS

Hawks waiting for Olympic invites

More listening than talking by Bulls

By MARK LAZERUS mlazerus@suntimes.com Shortly after 10 a.m. Tuesday, the Internet will implode and Canada will break off the continent and drift up into the Arctic Ocean, jarred loose by the simultaneous fits of rage of tens of millions of hockey fans. Yes, after months – years, really – of furious debate, Steve Yzerman is going to reveal the 25 members of Canada’s Olympic hockey team. Russia, Sweden, Finland and Slovakia, among others, will do the same. Few teams, if any, Jonathan have more candidates Toews in the running than the Blackhawks, who already have had two Olympians named (Patrick Kane of the United States, and Michal Rozsival of the Czech Republic) and one significant snub (Brandon Saad of the U.S.). Here’s an educated guess as to each of the remaining player’s chances of being picked by his home country:

CANADA Jonathan Toews: How good is Team Canada going to be? Toews, one of the top all-around players in the world, might be the third-line center. That good. Toews also is a candidate to be Canada’s captain. Odds of making the team: 100 percent Duncan Keith: The 2010 Norris Trophy winner is playing better than ever. He leads all NHL defensemen with 42 points, he can quarterback the power play, and he’s a healthy plus-18. Look for him on Canada’s top pairing, possibly with the Kings’ Drew Doughty. Odds: 100 percent Patrick Sharp: One of the hottest players in the league also has been one of the hottest topics for debate all season. Sharp likely started the season on the outside looking in. But he’s sixth in the league in points, and second in goals behind only Alex Ovechkin. With two hat tricks in a five-game span, Sharp has forced Yzerman’s hand. It helps that he can play wing or center, is strong on faceoffs and plays a twoway game. Odds: 80 percent Brent Seabrook: Seabrook was the seventh defenseman in Vancouver in 2010, and is fighting to be the seventh or eighth blue-liner this time around with the likes of Norris winner PK

Next vs. N.Y. Rangers, 7 p.m. Wednesday, NBCSN, AM-720 Subban and Dan Boyle. The bruising Seabrook is having one of his finest seasons yet, with 31 points and a plus22 rating (tops among defensemen). Odds: 40 percent Corey Crawford: Crawford has proven himself a big-game goalie, backstopping the Hawks to a Stanley Cup. But a groin injury cost him a few weeks at the worst time. He’s fighting with Phoenix’s Mike Smith to be Canada’s third goalie behind Roberto Luongo and Carey Price. Luongo’s reported foot/ankle injury could complicate things. Odds: 30 percent

SWEDEN Niklas Hjalmarsson: One of the more underrated pieces of the Hawks’ two Cup runs, the smooth and reliable Hjalmarsson will be an anchor for Sweden now and in the future. Odds: 100 percent Johnny Oduya: Oduya said earlier in the year he hoped he could “sneak in” because of his ready-made chemistry with Hjalmarsson. But the steady Swede should get in on his own merits. It helps that Winnipeg’s Toby Enstrom has opted to stay home. Odds: 60 percent Marcus Kruger: Even Olympic teams need fourth-line centers, penalty-killers and grinders. Kruger, with his mix of skill and grit, and his vast improvement on faceoffs, is an attractive candidate for that role. Odds: 40 percent

SLOVAKIA Marian Hossa: A veteran of three Olympics, with 25 points in 15 career games, Hossa remains one of the best two-way players in the world. His back has held up surprisingly well this season, and he said he’ll play rather than rest up for the stretch run. Odds: 100 percent Michal Handzus: The 36-year-old center’s lack of speed could be a detriment on the bigger international ice surface, but he could be a valuable role player for the Slovaks – good at faceoffs, strong on the penalty kill, reliable in his own end. He has four goals and three assists in two previous Olympics. Odds: 75 percent

Report: Knicks’ Anthony interested in playing for Bulls By JOE COWLEY jcowley@suntimes.com DEERFIELD – Of course there are continual trade rumors hovering over the Bulls. Teams that believe their “special” at the start of the season, lose their star player to a season-ending injury after only 10 games, and are sitting at 14-18 in the standings at the start of January, are supposed to be involved in talks to change the roster. The Bulls are no different. Well, almost. On Monday, coach Tom Thibodeau confirmed what a source told the Sun-Times two weeks ago – the organization is taking calls from other teams, but just not making many of them. “Normally, this time of year you hear a lot of stuff anyway, and that’s what their job is – to see what’s going on in the league,” Thibodeau said of the conversations he’s had with general manager Gar Forman and VP of Basketball Operations John Paxson. “They field calls all the time, and if a player is a good player you’re going to get more calls about him. That’s all part of it. “They’re not actively seeking to move anybody, but they’re always

Next vs. Phoenix, 7 p.m. Tuesday, WGN, AM-1000 looking to see if we can improve our club, and if something makes sense they’ll consider it. That’s what they do.” And that’s a smart play by the Bulls brass. Even with Luol Deng a free agent and a likely trade candidate, there’s no reason for the Bulls to be doing anything more than listen. That changes if one of those calls Carmelo has a 212 area code, Anthony and the player being offered up is New York’s Carmelo Anthony. Not as far-fetched as once believed. There was a recent report in the New York Post that Anthony listed the Bulls as one of the teams he would want to play for if he were to opt out the final year of his contract this summer, sighting Anthony’s respect for Thibodeau. As a member of the Bulls said, however, “Respecting Thibs is one thing, but can you play for him?” That’s the multi-million dollar question surrounding teaming Anthony with Derrick Rose. As well as one that could be answered by the Feb. 20 trade deadline or if the Bulls wait and Anthony becomes a free agent, this summer.

If the Bulls try to acquire Anthony now – likely acquiring Anthony and a throw-in player for Deng, Taj Gibson and a first-round pick – they would have to do so knowing that Anthony would be committed to staying in Chicago long-term. Therein lies a problem. Anthony is yet to show loyalty to an organization or teammates. But if Anthony wants to be pushed to be an elite all-around player and on a franchise committed to winning, Thibodeau and the Bulls would be the perfect place for him. “It all comes down to the player,” Gibson said of Thibodeau last month. “If you want to be coached and pushed to the limit, this is the team for you, he’s the coach for you.” And there are very few players who Thibodeau feels he couldn’t coach up. Anthony is not one of them. Thibodeau has long admired the forward’s game, and it finally would give the coach a second star on the roster to take pressure off Rose when he returns from knee surgery next season. According to a source, however, that call hasn’t come or been made. Thibodeau hinted at that after the Monday practice. “If something is interesting and they think that I should know, they’ll come to me and ask me what I think about it,” Thibodeau said. “And that’s the way it’s supposed to be.” Asked if any “interesting” names had been mentioned to him lately, Thibodeau responded, “The [players] that I have. That’s where my interests lie.”

BULLS NOTES

Boozer: Trade rumors part of the job “It’s just part of the business,” Boozer said. “It’s part of being in the league. You’re going to hear rumors about you or your teammates. I’ve been through it a thousand times. Just something you deal with. Just kind of block everything By JOE COWLEY out, just try to hoop, jcowley@suntimes.com get your team as high up (in the standings) DEERFIELD – Luol Deng isn’t the as you can and whatonly Bulls player whose name is beever happens is going Carlos Boozer ing churned through the rumor mill. to happen.

Forward sits out of Monday’s practice with sore right knee

As far as his sore right knee, Boozer again did not practice Monday, and will be re-evaluated before Tuesday’s morning shootaround. Smells like a Rose: According to Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, Derrick Rose has been showing up at the practice facility daily, and is down to walking on just one crutch. Rose tore the meniscus in his right knee Nov. 22, and had season-ending surgery. The hope is to have him sitting with his teammates on the bench by the end of January, but Thibodeau wasn’t making any promises. “Yeah, yeah, he’s doing fine,” Thibodeau said. “He comes in every day, so he’s doing good.”

Three players named football all-stars Trebes, Wagner, Dranka picked for Shrine Game Dakota Trebes

Bryce Wagner

Brandon Dranka

Dakota Trebes’ football future is very much up in the air. The Harvard senior, who was a two-way lineman on the Hornets’ Class 4A playoff quarterfinal team, is considering playing in college, although he might just move to Montana and either work or go to school, or both. So when Trebes received a letter regarding football during the week before Christmas, he got excited. Trebes, Richmond-Burton’s Bryce Wagner and Huntley’s Brandon Dranka all have been invited to play in the Illinois Coaches Association All-Star

Shrine Game on July 12 at Illinois Wesleyan’s Tucci Stadium in Bloomington. “Honestly, it was the last thing I expected,” said Trebes, a Northwest Herald All-Area firstteam selection on the offensive line. “It took me by surprise. I thought my football career was over. It’s an awesome feeling to play one more time.” Trebes (5-foot-10, 220 pounds) handed his information to Harvard coach Tim Haak, who was going to send it in to the ICA. Wagner (6-7, 335) was a Northwest Herald All-Area second-team offensive lineman and an Illinois High School Football Coaches Association Class 4A All-Stater. Dranka (6-2, 235) was an All-Area first-team selection after recording an area-best 11 sacks. Trebes and Dranka were

PREP ZONE Joe Stevenson invited to play for the West; Wagner will be on the East. “I’m pretty ecstatic. It’s a pretty good honor,” Wagner said. “I was hoping for it, I remember some past players from Richmond-Burton who had gotten to play in it.” Wagner wants to play in college and has official visits set for NCAA Division I schools Indiana State, Southern Illinois and Western Illinois. R-B coach Pat Elder said Wagner is young for his class and feels he has great potential at the college level. “We’ll see how it goes,” Wagner said. “Playing in college is one of my goals, I’m trying

to make it a reality. The recruitment process is incredibly stressful and I got started a little late. I wish it was over.” Wagner hopes college coaches can look at the way he moves for his size and will be impressed. “I move faster than some big people,” he said. “That’s one thing I try to get across.” Dranka is looking at Southern Illinois, Western Illinois, Indianapolis and South Dakota State for D-I schools, and at Bemidji (Minn.) State and Ferris (Mich.) State at the D-II level. “I’m going to play college football, but I’m not sure yet if my coach will let me play [in the All-Star game],” Dranka said. “When I pick my school, if the coach will let me, I’ll play.” Pecoraro to Loras: Prairie Ridge shortstop Danny Pecoraro

will play baseball at D-III Loras University in Dubuque, Iowa, next year. Pecoraro, the son of Wolves coach Glen Pecoraro, started last season for Prairie Ridge’s Class 4A regional championship team. Pecoraro hit .263 and had nine RBIs and had a .392 on-base percentage. Pecoraro played well in the St. Charles Junior Showcase and for Team Illinois last summer. He was considering D-III schools Augustana, Beloit, Wisconsin-Oshkosh and North Park, along with NAIA Cornerstone and McHenry County College.

Bradshaw hit 9 of 17 from the field, including a stretch starting late in the first half where he hit 6 of 7 field-goal attempts. Bradshaw hit five in a row as Prairie Ridge pulled away from the Bulldogs early in the second half, with a pair of 3-pointers that came during a 15-0 run.

Noteworthy Another Creason: Angie Creason, the wife of Richmond-Burton basketball coach Brandon Creason, deserves credit for her timing with the birth of their second child on Dec. 31. “When we were playing at Marengo (on Dec. 28), I said, ‘One more night,’ ” Brandon said. “She told me no promises.” Angie had daughter Vivian (7 pounds, 13 ounces) on New Year’s Eve, after R-B won Marengo’s E.C. Nichols Tournament and plenty of time before the Rockets’ next game, a win Friday against North Boone. The Creasons also have a 4-yearold son, Kellan.

Richmond-Burton’s Sam Kaufman (right) drives past Sycamore’s Daniel Evans during the first quarter of a 64th annual E.C. Nichols basketball tournament game at Marengo High School.

Kaufman more of a 3-point threat now • ROCKETS Continued from page C1 Kaufman, who averages 14.8 points a game, can get to the rim, but has become more of a 3-point threat this season. Creason doesn’t use the “couldn’t hit water if he fell out of a boat” line anymore like he did when Kaufman was a freshman. “With Sam, he has that never-satisfied attitude,” said Steve Preston, who trains players at Hard 2 Guard, which operates in the Your World Fitness building. “He has a tireless work ethic and a dedication for development. The things he can do and the comfort level he has now are huge assets for Richmond moving forward. “The younger kids coming up – Joey St. Pierre, Sam’s little brother Jake, Blaine Bayer (all freshmen on R-B’s varsity) – those guys come to our place and Sam’s setting the tone. They’re getting in the gym and individually

working on their games.” Kaufman started for the Rockets last season and had a good AAU season with Fundamental U, where he played with Cary-Grove junior guard Jason Gregoire, who also works out with Kaufman at Hard 2 Guard. “My jumpshot, ballhandling, I’m a lot stronger and more athletic,” said Kaufman, citing where he felt he had improved. “I put in a lot of work over the summer and improved my game allaround, not in just one area.” Senior guard Brian Wells said Kaufman just adds more toughness to a bunch that already plays hard. “He’s definitely matured more, that comes with just getting older,” Wells said. “He makes some good decisions. He also is very talented, his skills have improved, he’s gotten taller and stronger and his 3-point shooting is better. He’s very passionate about the game.” Creason has been contacted by mainly NCAA D-III

schools at this point about Kaufman, although his size and proficiency from the outside could draw more interest later this year. Both Creason and Preston agree this will be a big summer for Kaufman in terms of colleges. “I don’t like to talk about the AAU season during the high school season because the commitment now should be with Richmond,” Preston said. “We’ve had the conversation and he understands he’s going to have to work on issues he had last year in AAU. He’s going to be very well-prepared.” Because working on things is what makes Kaufman go. “He has to improve on some things. We’ve talked to him about getting his shot off quicker and things like that,” Creason said. “ I can tell you one thing about Sam, if you tell him to work hard on something, he will. Athletically, anybody who recruits him is going to be happy. He’s going to put the time in.”

TUSCOLA – Southern Illinois’ men’s basketball team made it back to Carbondale on Monday after its unexpected overnight stay on the floor of a central Illinois church. The Salukis were returning to Carbondale after Sunday’s 66-48 loss to Illinois State in Bloomington when their bus got stuck in snowdrifts on Interstate 57 south of Champaign. A tow truck pulled the bus from the side the road around midnight – hours after they first became stuck – and the roughly two dozen players and staff members spent the night at a Tuscola church.

Tom Weber, the school’s assistant athletic director for media services, said players began traveling again around 6:30 a.m. Monday after stocking up on food. Weber said earlier Monday that heavy snow meant the bus was only traveling about 15 mph. Several hours into the trip, they’d only made it as far as Effingham, about 50 miles south of Tuscola. “The roads are very, very bad,” he said. “They haven’t made a lot of progress.” Weber later said the team arrived at 2 p.m. in Carbondale. The team won’t be staying in southern Illinois for long – its next game is Wednesday in Chicago.

BEARS

Emery: We have less cap leeway, but enough space By ADAM L. JAHNS ajahns@suntimes.com As this past season full of adept salary-cap crunching illustrated, every single dollar matters to Bears general manager Phil Emery and his staff throughout the fluid situation of maintaining a roster. In that regard, Emery promised last week that quarterback Jay Cutler’s new seven-year deal – which includes $54 million guaranteed in the first three years and a yearly average of $18.1 million Phil Emery – would provide “tremendous value moving forward.” “Obviously, it was a key deal in terms of how we manage our salary cap not only this year but years forward,” Emery said. “That was very important.” It’s all about managing the cap when you’re a team like the Bears with several free agents to consider and other on-the-field issues to tactfully address. Cutler’s contract is constructed to where his base salaries are actually his cap hits. In his first three seasons of the deal, they are as followed, per a source: $22.5 million in 2014, $15.5 million in 2015 and $16 million in 2016. During the next four seasons of his deal, Cutler has base salaries of $12.5 million, $13.5 million, $17.5 million and $19.2 million with up to $2.5 million in roster bonuses to earn on a game-to-game basis in each of those years. Because a signing bonus is not currently included, Cutler’s deal is favorable when it comes to a renegotiation that could make it more cap-friendly as it goes. But the Bears also can re-

lease Cutler after 2016 without any salary-cap repercussions. “It’s fair for both sides,” Cutler said last week, “so hopefully we can continue to get players that are going to help this organization win.” The NFL’s salary cap for 2014 is projected to be more than $126 million. Based on those projections, that would have given the Bears about $45 million in cap space – the most in the NFC North, according to multiple analyses – when they went to work signing Cutler and others. According to a source, the Bears are committing $33,827,500 in cap space for 2014 by locking in Cutler, cornerback Tim Jennings ($5.25 million cap hit), kicker Robbie Gould ($2.6 million), left guard Matt Slauson ($2,747,500) and fullback Tony Fiammetta ($730,000) in the past two weeks. So, what’s next? With a defense to rebuild, the cap-crunching likely will continue by Emery and Co. Emery said he’d like to retain center Roberto Garza and backup quarterback Josh McCown, while expressing serious interest in keeping defensive linemen Corey Wootton and Jeremiah Ratliff. “We’ll have less space, [but] we’ll have enough space to be competitive and do the things that we need to do, attacking it when you take a look at the total context of how you attack building a team,” Emery said. “It’s not just the money that you have on cap for your phase. It is the draft, it is [unrestricted free agents], it is street free agents, it is the Arena League, it is Canadian football. We’re going to exhaust every source to put together the best group of players and the best team within the restrictions that we have. But to be simple, we’ve got less space, but we have enough space.”

Tampa Bay Buccaneers new head coach Lovie Smith gestures during an news conference Monday in Tampa, Fla. Smith replaces Greg Schiano, who was fired after the season ended. Smith, a former linebackers coach for Tampa Bay, was fired by the Bears as head coach last year.

TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS

Lovie Smith breaks his silence Without ever saying good-bye to Chicago, Lovie Smith said hello to Tampa on Monday. The former Bears coach didn’t look back as he celebrated a homecoming upon officially being introduced as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ head coach at the Buccaneers facility in Tampa. “It’s time for us to be a relevant team again,” said Smith, who was the Buccaneers’ linebacker coach from 1996 to 2000 under Tony Dungy. “I really like the foundation that’s in place here for us to make a quick climb.” As has been clearly evident, Smith moved on from the Bears long before Monday. His departure from Chicago was marked by his silence since being fired by general manager Phil Emery after failing to make the playoffs for the fifth time in six seasons in 2012, despite a 10-6 record. Previously fired Bears coaches at least said thankyou and good bye – from Mike Ditka (“All things must pass.

VIEWS Mark Potash This too shall pass.”) to Dave Wannstedt (“I’m not going to make excuses. It’s a tough job, a tough city.”) to Dick Jauron (“I have loved every moment of it. I wish it could have turned out better, but I am not looking back.”). But Smith never was heard from again in these parts. In nine years, Chicago never really warmed up to him, and it appears the feeling was mutual. He reflected on his days with the Bears only indirectly Monday. “My time in Chicago, it was my first head coaching job, so I did learn a lot from start to finish,” he said. “Just a great experience. As I come here as a coach that spent nine years in the league, every situation that will come up I’ve been in ... except for holding up the Lombardi Trophy.” Smith moves on to the

Buccaneers, who were 4-12 under Greg Schiano last season and have not made the playoffs in six seasons and have not won a playoff game since winning the Super Bowl under Jon Gruden after the 2002 season. The record of secondchance NFL coaches is hit and miss. Ditka, Wannstedt and Jauron were fired from their post-Bears gigs. Bill Belichick (3), Tom Coughlin (2), Tony Dungy and Jon Gruden all won Super Bowls after being fired elsewhere. Smith could wind up in either group. He had his faults but still was an excellent head coach. But it remains to be seen if the head-strong Smith has learned from his experience in Chicago. Even in the best of times, his teams faded – the Bears were 44-28 in the first half of the season and 37-35 in the second half. His record of hiring assistant coaches with the Bears was unimpressive. The only assistant to become a full-time head coach in the NFL is one he fired – Ron

Rivera. None of Lovie’s offensive coordinators still are in the NFL – Terry Shea, Ron Turner, Mike Martz and Mike Tice. Smith is rolling the dice already. His offensive coordinator is former Cal head coach Jeff Tedford, a noted quarterback guru who never has coached in the NFL. His defensive coordinator is former Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier. His good buddy Rod Marinelli is staying in Dallas, Smith said Monday. And he’s inheriting an awkward front-office dynamic. The Buccaneers still don’t have a general manager. It is presumed that Smith will have some say in whom the Bucs hire. The good news is that Smith has been here before. The bad news is that the last time Smith had a say in a GM search, the Bears ended up hiring the guy who fired him. The more things change ...

Wild-card Playoff teams win with their feet, not weather games create big weekend numbers

The NFL playoffs kicked off in exciting fashion, and if we learned anything from wild-card weekend, it’s that for cold-weather teams, home field isn’t always an advantage. Aside from the Indianapolis Colts’ stunning comeback over the Kansas City Chiefs, which took place indoors at Indy’s Lucas Oil Stadium and was so ridiculously improbable it deserves its own column, the frigid weather played an important role in last weekend’s matchups, working against home teams who on paper would seem more accustomed to playing in such conditions. All three of these games went to warm-weather road teams that are either built for or adjusted to a game plan based on running the ball and defense up front, which are conducive to playing in low temperatures. 49ers 23, Packers 20: The game that could have been most influenced by the weather was the 49ers’ last-second win over the Packers. The temperature at Lambeau Field was about 5 degrees at kickoff, with a wind chill of minus 9; that actually favored the 49ers, an old-school football team with a futuristic quarterback. In the regular season, San Francisco had the third-most rushing yards and the fourth-best run defense. On Sunday, the team relied on Colin Kaepernick’s air and ground attacks, as the quarterback threw for 227 yards with a touchdown and an interception and led the team with 98 rushing yards, including the 11-yard scramble on third-and-8 to set up Phil Dawson’s 33-yard, game-winning field goal. Frank Gore added 66 rushing yards and a touchdown as the 49ers ran for 167 total yards. On the other side of the field, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers struggled to gain their footing at first, failing to gain a first down in their first three drives. Rodgers bounced back from a silent first quarter and

led the league in yards on the ground. Instead, the Saints put a power-running game on the field, running the ball 36 times and throwing 30 times. New Orleans totaled 185 rushing yards, with 97 yards and a touchdown by Mark Ingram and a 45-yard effort by Khiry Robinson, while Brees finished with 250 yards. The team’s ground effort was even more impressive given the injury to starting running back Pierre Thomas. Meanwhile, the Saints managed to stuff LeSean McCoy, holding the Eagles star to just 77 rushing yards and one touchdown. For now, it seems the Saints have solved their road and cold problems, although they face the ultimate test next weekend against the Seattle Seahawks. Chargers 27, Bengals 10: The most surprising thing about the Chargers’ win over the Bengals wasn’t just that AP photo Cincinnati had the NFL’s third-best Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (left) talks to San Francisco 49ers defense and was undefeated at home quarterback Colin Kaepernick after an NFC wild-card playoff game Sunday in Green – it was the way San Diego pulled it off.

The ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK – The NFL’s wild-card weekend drew huge TV audiences. The four games averaged 34.7 million viewers for the most-watched wild-card weekend on record. The San Francisco 49ers’ 23-20 win over the Green Bay Packers had 47.1 million viewers Sunday on Fox to make it the most-watched wildcard game on record. The previous high was 42.4 million for the 2011 Steelers-Broncos game, which Denver won in overtime on Tim Tebow’s touchdown pass. But Sunday’s game had two exciting quarterbacks, history-rich franchises and the spectacle of a frigid Lambeau Field. It didn’t hurt that chilly temperatures across the country gave Americans good reason to stay indoors. The audience was larger than that for every NFC divisional playoff game Fox has broadcast and 13 of its 19 NFC championship games. The two Saturday games averaged 30.8 million viewers on NBC, a record for the Saturday wild-card games. The New Orleans Saints’ 26-24 win over the Philadelphia Eagles was the most-watched Saturday wild-card game ever with 34.4 million viewers. Three of the four games were decided by three points or fewer, only the second time in NFL history that happened in an NFL playoff weekend, after the 2006 divisional round. The one game that wasn’t as close, the San Diego Chargers’ 27-10 win over the Bengals, still drew a big audience, with 30.9 million viewers on CBS. That’s the most in 19 years for an early Sunday AFC wild-card game.

AP MEN’S BASKETBALL TOP 25 POLL

Arizona No. 1 for 5th straight week Illinois moves in at No. 23 The ASSOCIATED PRESS Arizona is No. 1 in The Associated Press college basketball poll for the fifth straight week, but for the first time in that span there are changes in the Top 25. The Wildcats (15-0) were still a runaway No. 1, with Syracuse, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Michigan State remaining the next four teams. Arizona received 60 first-place votes from the national media panel, while Syracuse (14-0) got the other five. Wichita State was sixth, followed by Baylor, Villanova, Iowa State and Florida. Duke, which lost at Notre Dame, dropped to No. 16, the first time the Blue Devils are

out of the Top 10 since December 2007. No. 23 Illinois and No. 25 Kansas State moved into the rankings for the first time this season replacing Connecticut, which had been 17th, and North Carolina, which was 19th. AP basketball writer Jim O’Connell breaks down this week’s poll: Great run: Duke (11-3) dropped from seventh to No. 16 on Monday, after their 79-77 loss at Notre Dame on Saturday. Duke’s run started with the fourth poll of 2007-08. The Blue Devils were in the top 10 for 122 consecutive polls, the second-longest such run since the poll started in January 1949. UCLA has the longest top 10 run, a stretch of 155 polls from the start of the 1966-67 season through January 1976. Only three schools – Arizona, Syracuse and Michigan

Illinois’ Rayvonte Rice drives past Penn State’s Tim Frazier during Saturday’s game at the State Farm Center in Champaign. State – have been in the top 10 in all 10 polls this season. League look: The changes in this week’s poll didn’t affect conference bragging rights. The new teams this week

– No. 23 Illinois of the Big Ten and No. 25 Kansas State of the Big 12 – kept their conferences tied for the most ranked teams – this week it’s five schools instead of four.

Illinois joined fellow Big Ten schools Ohio State, Wisconsin, Michigan State and Iowa in the rankings while Kansas State joined Baylor, Iowa State, Oklahoma State and Kansas of the Big 12. The Pac-12 and Southeastern Conference are next with three schools each. The American Athletic Conference and Atlantic Coast Conference had Connecticut and North Carolina, respectively, drop out of the Top 25 and both have two schools still ranked. New ones: Illinois and Kansas State made their first appearance this season in the rankings this week. The 23rd-ranked Illini (13-2), whose biggest win this season was over Missouri, were ranked for eight weeks last season, reaching as high as No. 10. The Wildcats (11-3), who

enter at No. 25 after beating Oklahoma State last week, were in the poll for the last 13 weeks last season, reaching as high as No. 9. They replace Connecticut and North Carolina. The Huskies dropped out from 17th after losing their first two American Athletic Conference games at Houston and SMU. They were 18th in the preseason poll and got as high as No. 9. This is the second time this season the Tar Heels have fallen out of the Top 25. They were 12th in the preseason poll but dropped out in the fourth regular-season voting after losses to Belmont and UAB. But they were back in the poll after a one-week absence with their win over then-No. 1 Michigan State. They dropped out this week after opening Atlantic Coast Conference play with a loss at Wake Forest.

Open the doors for all the greats, sinners and saints Heisman winner celebrates • MUSICK Continued from page C1 No answer will please everyone. So prepare to be displeased. Because I’d open the doors to all of baseball’s greats, both sinners and saints. Think of the Hall of Fame as a big museum. Let’s put everything on display. Show the stars who seemingly played by the rules. Create plaques for Maddux and his four Cy Young awards, Tom Glavine and his 305 career wins, and Frank Thomas (we all know Big Hurt had huge muscles, but they seemed like legitimate muscles) and his .301 career batting average to go along with 521 home runs. Show the stars who put up

big numbers and prompted plenty of speculation, even if nobody has been able to pin them down for using performance-enhancing drugs. Create plaques for Jeff Bagwell and his terrific career statistics (.297 batting average, 449 home runs and 1,401 walks) and Mike Piazza and his prolific production as a catcher (.308 batting average, 427 home runs and 12 All-Star selections). Was Craig Biggio clean? How about Jeff Kent? Mike Mussina probably was, yeah? And what about the case of Larry Walker, who never was linked to steroids but spent much of his career hitting doubles and home runs in Colorado’s thin air? Is the painting muddled enough yet? Last but not least, show

the stars who were exposed as cheaters in the infamous Mitchell Report of 2007. Create plaques for Barry Bonds and his 762 home runs and Roger Clemens and his 4,672 strikeouts. After all, Bonds and Clemens were great players anyway. When exactly did they start cheating and when exactly were they clean? And how many of their opponents were cheating, too, while all of us looked the other way? If the Hall of Fame decides not to show Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa, make it because their across-the-board production didn’t measure up to their elite peers, not because of some retroactive punishment for the summer of 1998. I wondered what the painter thought of this big mess.

Let Maddux in, Hanley said. Keep the juicers out. “I don’t like the drug aspect of it,” Hanley said. “There have always been cheaters, but this kind of cheating – chemicals – that’s so much different. “People will say, ‘Oh, Gaylord Perry used the spitball, and that was cheating.’ But that was more gamesmanship than scientific mutation of your body.” It was a fair point. But baseball is a metaphor for life, and life can be complicated. Like it or not, few things are as breezy as Maddux on the mound.

20th birthday with crown

• SEMINOLES Continued from page C1 The Heisman Trophy-winning freshman went 6 for 15 for 62 yards in the first half on his 20th birthday, with a key fumble setting up Marshall’s 4-yard TD run 5:01 before halftime. Winston also led a 66-yard scoring drive late in the first half and consistently moved Florida State in the third quarter – but with only three points to show for it. After trailing for the first time in any game since Sept. 28, Florida State needed a big finish to become the first team to rally from a halftime deficit to win the

$5000

BCS title game. Marshall, Winston’s relatively unheralded counterpart, looked sharp in the Auburn backfield. Auburn was the nation’s top rushing team, but coach Gus Malzahn showed the SEC champs can fling it as well while racking up 232 yards of offense in the first half. Mason caught a 12-yard TD screen pass in the first quarter, and Ray ran alone down the middle with a 50yard touchdown catch in the second quarter. Devonta Freeman had a 3-yard scoring run with 1:28 left in the half for Florida State, which faced its largest deficit and first halftime deficit of the season.

HEALTH WATCH

Fitness resolutions Losing weight and getting healthy are two of the most popular New Year’s resolutions, but despite good intentions, only a small percentage of us reach our goals. Here’s how to find success this coming year: 1. Fire up your motivation with your wins. Before you scratch your 2014 resolutions out on paper or type them in your iPhone, take time to think about what you did right in 2013. By referencing the positive, you will feel confident. 2. Get specific with your resolutions. “Lose weight” is not a smart resolution. A smart resolution is more specific like, “Lose 20 pounds in the first six months of the year.” 3. Have a plan. Once you have your resolutions written down – and only do three at a time so you don’t overwhelm yourself – decide how they’re going to happen. Say one of your resolutions is to build strength and firm up your body. How are you going to make it happen and by when? Get your detailed plan in print. 4. Don’t be all talk. Don’t create a resolution just so you can ignore it. Put pen to paper, pedal to the metal and rubber to the road. Chat up your resolutions all you want, Facebook and tweet about them too, but make your actions match your words.

CHILDREN’S HEALTH

Get tested Centers for Disease Control estimates nearly 20 million new sexually transmitted infections occur every year in this country, half among young people ages 15 to 24. Each of these infections is a potential threat to an individual’s immediate and long-term health and wellbeing. Hula, a new iPhone app, empowers users to find the best test centers, get their results online and share their verified status.

SENIOR HEALTH

Steps to avoid dehydration As we age, our sense of thirst may not be as effective, causing some older adults to be dehydrated but not feel thirsty. The average adult requires six to eight glasses of water a day, so a good rule of thumb is to have one glass at each meal and at least one glass in between meals.

In Hollywood, health coverage presents unique challenges By ANNA GORMAN Kaiser Health News Inside Fox Studios in Century City, crews are shooting the latest episodes of some of television’s biggest shows, including “Modern Family,” “How I Met Your Mother” and “Bones.” Just outside the lot, crew members on breaks are lining up at a mobile health clinic in a converted Winnebago, seeking treatment for both chronic diseases and common ailments. The Hollywood film and television industry relies heavily on freelancers and independent contractors who are rarely offered health insurance from an employer. Throughout Southern California, producers, writers, actors, editors, camera operators and prop makers move from gig to gig and hold numerous jobs each year. Some get insurance through the industry’s unions – after paying hefty fees and dues and working enough hours on union jobs. Others pay for private policies, or simply go without. The nation’s health law will offer financial help for those who buy policies through new insurance marketplaces and whose incomes are within the limits. But contract workers, freelancers and seasonal employees in a variety of industries will fall in and out of eligibility for subsidies, causing confusion and possible tax consequences. Entertainment workers face an additional challenge on top of the constant job turnover. Crew members often work long hours rigging lights, moving gear and building sets, which can lead to injuries and high levels of stress.

Not exactly glamorous Because their employers don’t often provide insurance, entertainment professionals say they have to get creative. They stock up on medications. They rely on spouses’ insurance. They take flexible day jobs. They even get married just to have steady coverage. They see all their doctors while they are covered – and then go weeks or months without medical care. “They try to stay employed,” said Bob Beitcher, chief executive officer of the Motion Picture & Television Fund, a charity that provides health and social services for entertainment workers. “Then they pray they don’t have health issues when they are not employed.” The health law was not designed for the entertainment industry, Beitcher said. The fund offers a temporary program for uninsured production workers to get affordable doctor’s visits.

Cat Rhinehart, a comedian living in Los Angeles, hasn’t had regular coverage for years. When she paid $400 a month for insurance, she went to the doctor frequently. Now uninsured, Rhinehart receives most of her medical care at Planned Parenthood. “I used to be a hypochondriac, but now I can’t really afford to be,” she said. But she knows she needs to be vigilant about her health, especially since her sister was diagnosed with breast cancer at 28.

‘A rock and a hard place’ Gretchen Somerfeld, who works as a script supervisor, production manager and a voiceover artist, pays for her own insurance. She has worked in the entertainment industry for 26 years, mostly in commercials, and typically works about 50 different jobs in the course of a year. Occasionally, she works enough hours on union jobs that she qualifies for coverage, but Somerfeld said she can’t depend on it. Her current insurance, which costs more than $600 a month with a $3,000 deductible, doubled after she started taking medication for high cholesterol. Somerfeld supports the Affordable Care Act but doubts it will help her. Somerfeld, who is single,

earns on average about $50,000, which puts her just above the limit to receive insurance subsidies through the state’s health exchange. “At first, I was excited about ‘Obamacare,’ ” she said. “Now I think I might fall between a rock and a hard place. It is very frustrating.” Dennis Green, the doctor who goes from studio to studio with the mobile health van known as Health Wheels, said that many of these workers – even those with insurance – don’t get to the doctor regularly. The 35-foot clinic run by the Motion Picture & Television Fund has two exam rooms, a bathroom and a small bench where patients can wait. On a recent morning, Megan Cannon, a set decorator on “Bones,” wanted a referral to a dermatologist. Cannon, who is covered through a union, said being able to go to an appointment while at work helps her take better care of herself. Aside from the convenience, Green said, the mom-and-pop nature of the mobile center helps crew members feel more comfortable. And he is able to see them quickly on their breaks. “We’ll roll onto the lot with one

person on the schedule,” he said. “And we’ll fill up.”

‘A whole new world’ Hollywood production companies, too, are trying to figure out how to comply with the ACA employer mandate, set to begin in 2015. Production companies typically don’t know much about insurance and will have to figure out who they have to cover and how to avoid penalties, said Mark Goldstein, CEO and president of Entertainment Partners. “For many of them, this is going to be a whole new world,” he said. “Everyone is definitely scrambling to figure out how it is going to apply to them.” Entertainment Partners is planning to provide its own insurance for production workers. About 35 to 40 percent of production workers are not covered by unions, Goldstein said.

NEW RESEARCH

Pot’s influence Teens who were heavy marijuana smokers, smoking every day for about three years, had more difficulty performing memory tasks and had abnormal brain structure changes compared with those who had never used the drug. The findings, published in the journal Schizophrenia Bulletin, add to the debate over how potentially damaging marijuana can be on the brain.

Oftentimes, listening can be the best medicine Some of the best diagnoses I have made were because I took the time to listen to the patient. Taking a thorough history examination in an era of limited time to spend with patients, along with too much reliance on computers, has become a lost art. A recent article in the British Medical Journal brought home the importance of listening to what the patient has to say. The article was about a patient who informed the medical staff the clock in his

VIEWS Dr. Murray Feingold hospital room told him he was going to die. This revelation surprised the staff because the patient did not have any critical illness nor did he show any signs of paranoia. However, he continued to make this claim and could not be dissuaded. One of the medical staff members listened to the patient and took his

pronouncement seriously. He then did the obvious – he looked at the clock. And there, clear as could be, were the letters: DIE. On further examination it was determined that the clock was made in Germany. The letters DIE are an abbreviation for the German word “Dienstag,” which means Tuesday. After pressing several buttons, the English version of Tuesday, TUES, appeared on the clock. The case was solved, thus eliminating the need for

a psychiatric consultation. Although not as dramatic, the first article I ever published in the medical literature was the result of listening to the mother of my patient. She always believed the symptoms present in her son started soon after her husband painted the boy’s bedroom. She found the old paint can, and I sent the paint to the laboratory, where it was determined the paint contained mercury. Her son had a condition called acrodynia, a now-rare

disease that is caused by mercury in the body. As my wife’s Uncle Clarence always used to say, “God gave us two ears and one mouth so we would listen twice as much as we talked.” That advice should be heeded by physicians as they take their patient’s history.

The consequences of helicopter parenting Some find adulthood too overwhelming By BROOKE DONATONE The Washington Post

University of Colorado, Boulder, student Karlie Johansen collects a saliva sample from 3-year-old Anders Todd as part of a study of sleep patterns in young children. In an earlier study, researchers reported that if young children continually struggle to fall asleep at night, it might be because their body clock is out of sync with their bedtime.

Body clock to blame Research shows toddlers who fight sleep may be put to bed too early By LAURAN NEERGAARD The Associated Press WASHINGTON – “Just one more story, please?” “I need a glass of water.” “Mom, I can’t sleep!” When youngsters continually struggle to fall asleep at night, new research suggests maybe their body clock doesn’t match their bedtime. That doesn’t mean tots should be up at all hours. “Just like nutrition and exercise, sleep is critical for good health,” said sleep scientist Monique LeBourgeois of the University of Colorado, Boulder, who is leading the research. The ultimate goal is to help reset a delayed sleep clock so young children can settle down more easily, she said. Hint: It seems to have a lot to do with light. We all have what’s called a circadian rhythm, a master biological clock, that regulates when we become sleepy and when we’re more alert. Those patterns vary with age: It’s the reason teenagers are notorious for late nights and

difficult-to-wake mornings. But how does that clock work in preschoolers, who need more sleep than older kids or adults? A first-of-itskind study tracked 14 healthy youngsters for six days to begin finding out. The children, ages 2½ to 3, wore activity monitors on their wrists to detect when they slept. Parents kept diaries about bedtime routines. Then on the last afternoon, researchers visited each home, dimming lights and covering windows. Then, every 30 minutes for six hours leading up to the child’s appointed bedtime, they also coaxed each tot to chew on some dental cotton to provide a sample of saliva. The reason: To test for levels of a hormone named melatonin that is key to the sleep cycle and also sensitive to light. At some point every evening, people’s melatonin levels surge and a while later, they begin to feel sleepy. Among adults who sleep well, that melatonin rise tends to happen about two hours before whatever is their chosen

bedtime. For preschoolers, the new study found that on average, the melatonin surge happened about 7:40 p.m. The children tended to be tucked in around 8:10 p.m., and most were asleep 30 minutes later, LeBourgeois reported in the journal Mind, Brain and Education. When melatonin rose earlier in the evening, tots who hit the sack around 8 fell asleep a bit faster. But when the melatonin surge was closer to bedtime, the youngsters were more likely to fuss or make curtain calls after lights-out. Two children in the study actually were tucked in before their rise in melatonin ever occurred, and it took them up to an hour past bedtime to fall asleep, she said. “We don’t know what that sweet spot is yet,” LeBourgeois said, but the data suggest bedtime is easiest if the melatonin surge happened at least 30 minutes earlier. The study reinforces what doctors have long suspected is one bedtime barrier, said Dr. Jyoti Krishna, a pediatric sleep expert at the Cleveland

Clinic. Other factors can disrupt a child’s sleep, too, such as noise, stress or anxiety, or disrupted home routines, he cautioned. “But this paper reminds us that, hey, there is a time that the body is more ready to sleep than at other times,” Krishna said. The National Institutes of Health says preschoolers need 11 to 12 hours of sleep each day; some typically comes from an afternoon nap. Parents don’t have melatonin tests as a guide, so Krishna advises looking for cues when setting a bedtime – yawning, rubbing eyes – and then to adjust that bedtime as the child gets older. “The melatonin onset and our body rhythms change,” Krishna said. “You can’t stick to what worked two years ago with this child, because this child is now a different child.” About 25 percent of young children experience some type of sleep difficulty, including trouble settling down at bedtime, LeBourgeois said. “Listen to your child’s physiology,” she advised.

Amy (not her real name) sat in my office and wiped her streaming tears on her sleeve, refusing the scratchy tissues I’d offered. “I’m thinking about just applying for a Ph.D. program after I graduate because I have no idea what I want to do.” Amy had mild depression growing up, and it worsened during freshman year of college when she moved from her parents’ house to her dorm. It became increasingly difficult to balance school, socializing, laundry and a parttime job. She finally had to dump the part-time job, was still unable to do laundry, and often stayed up until 2 a.m. trying to complete homework because she didn’t know how to manage her time without her parents keeping track of her schedule. I suggested finding a job after graduation, even if it’s only temporary. She cried harder at this idea. “So, becoming an adult is just really scary for you?” I asked. “Yes,” she sniffled. Amy is 30 years old. Her case is becoming the norm for twenty- to thirtysomethings I see in my office as a psychotherapist. I’ve had at least 100 college and grad students like Amy crying on my couch because breaching adulthood is too overwhelming. In 2000, psychologist Jeff Arnet coined the term “emerging adolescence” to describe extended adolescence that delays adulthood. People in their 20s no longer view themselves as adults. There are various plausible reasons for this, including longer life spans, helicopter parenting and fewer high paying jobs that allow new college grads to be financially independent at a young age. Millennials do have to face some issues that previous generations did not. A college degree is now the career equivalent of what a high school degree used to be. This increases the pressure on kids to go to college and makes the process more competitive. The sluggish economy no longer yields a

wealth of jobs upon graduation. Rates of depression are soaring among millennials in college. A 2012 study by the American College Counseling Association reported a 16 percent increase in mentalhealth visits since 2000 and a significant increase in crisis response over the past five years. It seems as if every article about millennials claims these kids must all have narcissistic personality disorder. It’s easy to generalize an entire population by its collective Facebook statuses. However, narcissism is not Amy’s problem, or the main problem with millennials. The big problem is not that they think too highly of themselves. Their bigger challenge is conflict negotiation, and they often are unable to think for themselves. The overinvolvement of helicopter parents prevents children from learning how to grapple with disappointments on their own. If parents are navigating every minor situation for their kids, kids never learn to deal with conflict on their own. Helicopter parenting has caused these kids to crash land. A 2013 study in the Journal of Child and Family Studies found college students who experienced helicopterparenting reported higher levels of depression and use of antidepressant medications. The researchers suggest intrusive parenting interferes with the development of autonomy and competence. So helicopter parenting leads to increased dependence and decreased ability to complete tasks without parental supervision. Amy is still figuring out how to grow up. After a few months of therapy and medication to stabilize her depression, she started exercising to help relieve anxiety. She started online dating, something she found daunting before, and got a girlfriend. She started applying to grad schools but also made a list of places she wants to apply for jobs. Amy still has no idea what she wants to do when she grows up, but she’s a little less frightened of it now.

Couple wonders if parenting will Cirrhosis sufferers should try be worth it second time around non-drug strategies for pain Dear Abby: My husband and I are happily married and will celebrate 15 years of marriage next year. We have a 5-year-old daughter. Our dilemma is whether or not we should have another child. I’m 38, and my husband is 40. We have become comfortable with the fact our daughter is getting more independent. We plan on doing a lot of traveling, and I will change jobs after I complete school. We are not sure about starting over with a baby. We are doing OK financially, and if we have a second child, it would have to be within the next year, while I finish my classes and can be home to be with the baby. Our daughter is welladjusted, and we plan on putting her in activities such as dance and gymnastics. We would like your opinion, and also to hear from parents who had only one child, as well as people who were raised without a sibling. – Maybe Only One In Georgia Dear Maybe Only One: If you are considering enlarging your family only so your daughter will have a sibling, I don’t recommend it. What the six-year age difference means is your children will not grow up “together.” By the time the younger one

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips is starting high school, the older one will be in college and gone. Even when they are closer in age, it’s no guarantee siblings will be close. I cannot – and should not – decide this for you. I am throwing your question open to my readers and will share their opinions with you. However, I’m sure they will be varied. Dear Abby: I am generally a conservative person. My 17-year-old son, “Leo,” asked for an ear piercing when he was 13. I wasn’t sure whether I liked the kind of impression it made, but because it was only one piercing, I agreed on the condition he would stop at one hole. When Leo was 15, he begged to have dreadlocks. Thinking it was a phase, I allowed it even though I wasn’t thrilled. He has since cut off the dreads, but now says he wants an eyebrow piercing. My son is a loving, wonderful, happy kid. He’s active in school, well-liked and an excellent student in an advanced academic program. I couldn’t honestly think of a good reason to say no, even though this piercing freaks

me out. I sense Leo wants to do more piercings, but he’s respectful enough to wait awhile. My question is, what is a good reason to NOT agree to more piercings? Every argument I’ve thought of – unsightly, unsanitary, makes the wrong impression – is rather thin. My 12-year-old daughter wants to dye her hair purple. I’m saying no but still have no good reason for that, either. Am I just too old-fashioned? – Not-With-It Mom In

Maccabim, Israel Dear Not-With-It Mom: Tell your son he was born with a perfect body. When you agreed to the ear piercing, it was on the condition that there would be only one piercing, and you expect him to keep his part of the bargain. If he asks for a further explanation, tell him it’s because he has enough holes in his head. As to your daughter, remember it’s only hair and it will grow out. If this is her only form of rebellion, consider yourself lucky. As to your being “too oldfashioned,” it’s a mother’s JOB to be old-fashioned. Keep up the good work.

Dear Dr. K: I have cirrhosis of the liver. I also get tension headaches. What pain reliever can I take for my tension headaches? Dear Reader: One of the liver’s many jobs is detoxification – ridding the blood of toxins. Cirrhosis, a liver disease, interferes with the liver’s ability to detoxify substances in the blood. Your liver sees medications as toxins. When your liver is compromised, medications that are normally considered “safe” may no longer be safe for you. The safest pain medicine for someone with cirrhosis is acetaminophen (Tylenol). However, even this is more risky in people with cirrhosis. That’s because this medicine can be toxic to the liver. There is some evidence it may be more likely to injure a liver already damaged, such as from cirrhosis. I advise patients with cirrhosis not to take more than 2,000 milligrams in a day, or more than 650 mg a dose. That’s the equivalent of two regular-strength acetaminophen tablets. Take acetaminophen for the shortest time as possible. Some doctors believe it’s OK for people with cirrhosis to take as much as 3,000 milligrams (mg) in one day, but I’m more conservative.

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff Another frequently used non-prescription class of painkillers is the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen and naproxen. Unfortunately, cirrhosis raises the risk of internal bleeding from NSAIDs. Also, cirrhosis makes the kidneys more vulnerable to injury from drugs, particularly NSAIDs. So I think it’s best for people with cirrhosis to avoid NSAIDs. When possible, use nondrug strategies to relieve pain. Here are some strategies you can try when you experience a tension headache: • Ice or heat, and rest. Numb the pain with an ice pack, wrapped in a towel and applied to your forehead and temples for 15 minutes at a time. If muscle tension accompanies your head pain, apply heat packs to your neck and the back of your head. Retreating to a dark, quiet room to rest also can help. • Tai chi and yoga appear to reduce headache frequency and severity. But they don’t help relieve a headache

once it has begun. • Acupuncture involves inserting fine needles into the skin. This may release endorphins, the body’s natural painkilling chemicals. Acupuncture can be used for relieving head pain as it occurs and for reducing headache frequency. • Biofeedback. Head pain often is triggered by muscle tension. During biofeedback sessions, you’ll learn to recognize when you’re tensing up the muscles in the back, neck, shoulders or head – and to relax them before they cause pain. Biofeedback treats and prevents tension headaches. • Massage. I’ve had several patients who have found massage of the muscles in the back of the neck gave them relief, though I know of no studies proving its value. Finally, avoid situations that seem to bring on your tension headaches, such as working at a computer uninterrupted for several hours, or arguments with your children. It may reduce the number of tension headaches you get, and it won’t damage your liver.

By PHILLIP ALDER Newspaper Enterprise Association

The International Bridge Press Association jury does a tough job in choosing the annual award winners in four categories: bidding, declarer play, defense and juniors. This deal, which would have been my junior winner, could have also been in the declarer-play list. South was Adam Kaplan of New Port Richie, Fla. In the auction, one club showed 16-plus points; four clubs was a control-bid (cue-bid); four spades was Roman Key-Card Blackwood; ive clubs indicated one key-card (an ace or the heart king); ive clubs asked for the heart queen; and six hearts showed that card and denied a side-suit king. After winning with dummy’s spade ace, declarer cashed the heart ace. When East dropped the 10, South deduced that hearts were 3-1. He cashed dummy’s club king, played a club to his ace, and led his last spade. If West had found the best defense, discarding a diamond, declarer would have won with dummy’s spade king and led an-

other spade, discarding his remaining diamond -- the key play. Probably East would have led a spade, but Kaplan would have ruffed high, played a diamond to dummy’s ace, ruffed dummy’s diamond seven, and crossruffed the rest of the tricks. Instead, West trumped the second spade and returned his third heart. Kaplan claimed, saying that he would discard his last diamond on dummy’s spade king and ruff his two low clubs on the board. Brilliant, especially for someone who was only 16 years old.
