McHenry dad: Police unjustly beat 17-year-old Teen receiving medical treatment By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO McHENRY – A McHenry family is alleging that three McHenry County Sheriff’s officers grabbed their underage son by the hair and bashed his head against the pavement during an incident along River Road last weekend. Police stopped the 17-year-old boy and his girlfriend while they were walking home along River Road, near Route 176, in McHenry around 12:30 a.m. Oct. 19, said Jerry Connor, a personal injury attorney at Albert R. Pino’s Law Offices who is

representing the family. An officer cited the boy in connection with underage drinking and then called for backup, Connor said. The officer and two others proceeded to beat the 140-pound boy, who suffered a skull fracture, concussion, nasal bone fracture and a detached retina, Connor and the boy’s father said. The boy currently is receiving medical treatment and might be suffering from permanent brain damage, the family said. Moments before the alleged beating, the boy was

Deal closer in Pyle child sex abuse case Sarah Nader –

Karen Guthrie (center) of Crystal Lake participates in an informational picket line Tuesday outside of Cary-Grove High School. District 155 teachers still are working without a contract and frustration is starting to build after negotiations were stalled because of the unavailability of a federal mediator during the government shutdown.

Districts struggle to determine fair teacher pay By JEFF ENGELHARDT CRYSTAL LAKE – Charles McBarron is certain the uncertainty at the state level when it comes to funding education and pensions results in a near certainty – difficult negotiations between teachers unions and school boards. McBarron, spokesman for the Illinois Education Association, said that while he does not know the details of the ongoing negoti-

ations between Community High School District 155 and its teachers union, contract negotiations around the state have become more difficult as the state wavers on funding schools and addressing pension issues. Teachers in District 155 have been working without a contract since July 1. “Illinois is at or near the bottom of funding public education and that lack of support certainly makes contract negotiations far


more difficult,” McBarron said. “But the key thing in all negotiations are teaching and learning conditions. And teaching conditions are the students’ learning conditions, so they go hand in hand.” McBarron said because teacher contracts are negotiated at the local level, many can be significantly different from others and still fair depending on that area’s condition.

MARIAN CENTRAL WINS REGIONAL All week Marian Central soccer coach Jim Colvin had his team run three-minute drills in which it was down one goal and needed to score before time expired. So it was fitting that the Hurricanes found themselves in that situation during Friday’s Class 2A Marian Central Regional final against Woodstock North. Marian rallied to beat Woodstock North, 4-3.

By CHELSEA McDOUGALL ROCKFORD – Federal attorneys are inching closer to a plea agreement for a former McHenry County Sheriff’s deputy accused of child sex abuse and child pornography. Gregory M. Pyle, 38, i s a w a i t i n g Gregory trial in fed- M. Pyle eral court in Rockford on charges that he traveled across state lines to engage in a sexual act with a minor and used a minor to engage in sexual conduct to produce child pornography.

Pyle also was charged by state authorities in January 2012 with 10 counts of predatory criminal sexual assault. He posted bond in McHenry County but was rearrested that August on a federal indictment. He’s since been held in federal custody without bail in Boone County Jail. According to the federal complaint, the alleged victim is a boy related to Pyle. Authorities said the boy told the FBI that Pyle had sexually abused him since he was about 8 years old and that most of the abuse occurred in Pyle’s Crystal Lake home. He also allegedly abused the

OKLAHOMA CITY – Darren Black Bear hasn’t thought too much about his upcoming nuptials. Maybe khaki pants, and he doesn’t mind if guests show up in Halloween costumes even though the wedding will be a rare sight: He and his partner are getting legally married in Oklahoma even though the state bans same-sex marriage. How? His bloodline. Black Bear and his partner of nine years, Jason Pickel, plan to walk each other down the aisle Thursday, surrounded by family and friends, before signing a marriage license granted by the Cheyenne Arapaho Tribes. Black Bear, 45, is a member of the Oklahoma-based tribe, which is among the few Native American tribes in the U.S. that allow same-sex marriage. Like all federally recog-

Its code regarding marriage doesn’t address gender, referring to the parties simply as “Indians,” and requires that one person be a member of the tribe and reside within its

jurisdiction. It was on a whim, sparked in part by the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision earlier this year to grant federal benefits to same-sex couples, that Pickel, 36, called the tribe to see if they could marry under tribal law instead of getting

married in Iowa or another state where gay marriage was legal. “Surprisingly enough, they told him that yes, they had already married one couple, and that it’s $20 to get married,” Black Bear said. “I’m just really happy we are able to finally get married,” Pickel added later at the couple’s home in Oklahoma City. “And one day, when we have true equality in all 50 states, we will hopefully have all the same benefits and rights in every state.” At least six other tribes allow same-sex marriage, including the Coquille Tribe in Oregon and the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians in Michigan, states that also ban same-sex marriage, according to national gay marriage advocacy group Freedom to Marry. Other tribes, such as the Cherokee Nation, specifically bar gay marriage.

Tests prove Roma couple are mystery girl’s parents The ASSOCIATED PRESS NIKOLAEVO, Bulgaria – The mystery is solved – but the future of the young girl known only as Maria is still uncertain. DNA tests have confirmed that a Bulgarian Roma couple living in an impoverished village with their nine other children are the biological parents of the girl found in Greece with another Roma couple, authorities said Friday. Genetic profiles of Sasha Ruseva, 35, and her 37-yearold husband, Atanas, matched

that of Maria, Bulgarian Interior Ministry official Svetlozar Lazarov said Friday. By late Friday, the couple had not returned to their home that was surrounded by local and international reporters after the news was announced, and police said their whereabouts were unknown to them. Three of the couple’s youngest children were taken to a shelter for temporary care, said Diana Kaneva, director of social services for the central Stara Zagora region. Ruseva had said she gave

birth to a baby girl four years ago in Greece while working there as an olive picker but gave the child away because she was too poor to care for her. She since has had two more children after Maria. Maria has been in a charity’s care since authorities raided a settlement of Roma, also known as Gypsies, in Greece last week and found she was not related to the Greek Roma couple she was living with. Her discovery triggered a global search for her parents, fears of possible child trafficking and interest from

authorities dealing with missing children cases in Poland, France, the United States and elsewhere. Human rights groups also have raised concerns that the news coverage about Maria and the actions taken by authorities were fueling racist sentiment against the European Union’s Gypsy minority, who number around 6 million. The Bulgarian prosecutor’s office and Greek authorities were “seeking clarification on whether the mother agreed to sell the child,” the Interior Ministry said in a statement.

ESTHERVILLE, Iowa – A squirrel roaming a community college in northern Iowa has become the No. 1 suspect in a vandalized bicycle incident. Officials at Iowa Lakes Community College in Estherville say the rodent chewed through two tires, a bicycle seat, a headlight and a taillight in the span of two days beginning Wednesday. The Sioux City Journal reported the bicycle owner, an associate math professor, reported the incidents to Estherville police. Another professor later came forward with a photo that shows the squirrel attacking the bike.

Jackson Jr. to sell home to pay $750,000 forfeiture judgment By MICHAEL TARM The Associated Press

AP file photo

The Hill Correctional Center is seen on July 25, 2011, in Galesburg. A program to serve Illinois prisoners two meals a day instead of three was supposed to save the state money, but Department of Corrections officials told lawmakers it will cost $200,000 per prison to implement the “brunch” program.

Fewer meals for inmates in Ill. costlier than thought The ASSOCIATED PRESS SPRINGFIELD – Feeding prisoners two daily meals instead of three seems like it should save money, but substituting breakfast and lunch for “brunch” at Illinois’ two dozen state prisons could cost several million dollars. Disappointed lawmakers learned this week that it cost the Illinois Department of Corrections $200,000 to convert each of the prisons in Canton and Galesburg to the brunch and dinner system, department spokesman Tom Shaer said Friday. A third lockup, in Mount Sterling, may soon adopt the new system, which eventually will be used throughout the state prison system. Funding for the program was part of an extra appropriation of $40.5 million the department requested this week for the budget year that began July 1. The House Public Safe-

ty Appropriations Committee hasn’t acted on the request yet. The main reason for brunch-and-supper, officials say now, is to cut the amount of inmates’ out-of-cell movement, which increases the safety risk to inmates and guards, and to avoid serving breakfast during the dark early-morning hours of winter. Meal shifts at larger prisons begin long before sunrise. “The ‘brunch’ program was not created to save money,” Shaer said. “It was for safety and security by not having to march lines of inmates to [the mess hall] in the dark during winter early breakfast hours, to better utilize dietary staff. Also, inmates were in favor of not having to eat breakfast at 4:30 a.m.” Corrections Director S.A. “Tony” Godinez, though, cast the program in a different light in an April 2012 story by Lee Enterprises Newspapers,

saying it would save $2.5 million the following year. Shaer said there were no savings because the program didn’t get started. “That’s what’s so frustrating,” said Rep. David Reis, a Republican from Willow Hill and appropriations committee member. “We make tough [budget] decisions back in the spring and then they go back and ask for it [money] again. ... It’s the same song and dance.” Reis said the conversion should yield some savings on food and inmate movement. Corrections officials say among the costs they have to consider when switching to the brunch system is how to provide prisoners with the same number of calories as they get in the three-meal system. Shaer said it’s not as simple as serving each prisoner at brunch a breakfast package and lunch package, and the current milk and juice carton sizes are wrong.

CHICAGO – Prison-bound former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. plans to sell his home in Washington, D.C., to help pay a $750,000 forfeiture judgment – part of his sentence for illegally dipping into his campaign coffers and spending the money on rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia, furs capes, vacations, TVs and scores of other personal items. The Chicago Democrat’s attorneys and federal prosecutors mentioned the plan in a joint filing Friday in U.S. District Court in Washington. The three-page document adds that the cash-strapped son of civil rights leader Jesse Jackson would need more time to come up with money to pay the judgment. Jackson, 48, is expected to enter prison within several weeks for the 2 1/2-year prison term that was imposed in August. His wife Sandra,

a former Chicago alderman, was given a yearlong sentence for filing false income tax returns related to the misspent funds – though out of consideration for the couple’s two school-aged kids, she’ll serve her time after her husband is released. The sale of the Jacksons’ Victorian-style town house on an upscale Jesse street in the nation’s capJackson Jr. ital could enable them to keep their Chicago home, which prosecutors also targeted for potential forfeiture. When the Jacksons briefly put the four-bedroom Washington home up for sale in 2012, they asked for $2.5 million. Property records this year assess its value at around $1.3 million. One high-profile bid in which Jesse Jackson tried to raise money already fell through. A September online

auction organized by the U.S. Marshals Service to sell part of his celebrity memorabilia collection was canceled after a few days when someone questioned the authenticity of a guitar purportedly signed by Michael Jackson and Eddie Van Halen. The ex-congressman had paid $4,000 in campaign funds for it. “The parties agree that none of the items seized will be sold,” Friday’s filing says, referring to the auction. Jackson admitted spending $750,000 of donors’ money on more than 3,000 personal items, including $60,857 at restaurants, nightclubs and lounges; $43,350 for a gold-plated men’s Rolex watch; and around $5,300 for mounted elk heads. There’s no fixed deadline to pay the judgment in full. Jackson’s attorneys said this summer that he should be able to pay within three months, but the Friday morning filing noted that was no longer possible.

Developmental center’s closure postponed By KERRY LESTER The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD – The shuttering of a southern Illinois center for the developmentally disabled has been postponed due to a pending court case, state officials said Friday. Department of Human Services officials told The Associated Press that the closure of the Murray Developmental Center in Centralia was being rescheduled from Nov. 30, though no new date has yet been announced. “While we don’t have a date for closure, the intent is still to close the Murray Developmental Center as part of the rebalancing plan in Illinois,” DHS communications

director Tom Green said. The move comes eight months after a lawsuit to block the closure was filed in federal court by the Murray Parents Association and developmentally disabled groups. The facility was set to close as part of a plan to save the state money and to have more community-based care for people with disabilities. But the lawsuit alleges that 250 Murray residents – many of whom have spent a majority of their lives at the facility – have severe disabilities that only an institution can adequately handle. In recent months, 18 residents have been transferred out of the center, but 224 remain on campus, Green said.

The advocacy groups also dispute the state’s claim that the move to community-based care would save the state nearly $120,000 per year, per resident. Judith Sherwin, an attorney who represents the parents association, said the move was a long awaited acknowledgement by the state “that they can’t really set a closure date until they know if they’re going to close.” The decision to remove the state’s application to close the center from an Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board’s November agenda follows a ruling earlier this month by U.S. District Judge Marvin Aspen that upheld core tenets of the parents association’s lawsuit.

New boss for fixing the balky health care website By RICARDO ALONSO–ZALDIVAR The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Nearly a month into the dysfunctional rollout, the Obama administration acknowledged the wide extent of its health care website’s problems Friday and abruptly turned to a private company to oversee urgent fixes. Setting a new timetable, officials said most issues will be repaired by the end of November. It will take a lot of work, but “ is fixable,” declared Jeffrey Zients, a management consultant brought in by the White House. By the end of next month, he said, there will be many fewer signup problems such as computer screen freezes – but he stopped short of saying problems will completely disappear. The administration also said it is promoting one of the website contractors, a subsidiary of the nation’s largest health insurance company, to take on the role of “general contractor” shepherding the fixes.

Quality Software Services Inc. – owned by a unit of UnitedHealth Group – was responsible for two components of the government’s online insurance system. One is the data hub, a linchpin that works relatively well, and the other is an accounts registration feature that initially froze and caused many problems. Zients reJeffrey ported that his review found Zients dozens of issues across the entire system, which is made up of layers of components meant to interact in real time with consumers, government agencies and insurance company computers. was supposed to be the online portal for uninsured Americans to get coverage under President Barack Obama’s health care law. Envisioned as the equivalent of for health insurance, it became a huge bottleneck immediately upon

launch Oct. 1. A major embarrassment for the administration, it is likely to end up as a case study of how government technology programs can go awry. The briefing from Zients came a day after executives of QSSI and the other major contractor, CGI Federal, told Congress that the government didn’t fully test the system and ordered up last-minute changes that contributed to logjams. Next week, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is scheduled to testify on Capitol Hill. Visiting a community health center on Friday in Austin, Texas, Sebelius said that “in an ideal world there would have been a lot more testing.” But she added that her department had little flexibility to postpone the launch against the backdrop of Washington’s unforgiving politics. Republicans hoping, in the words of their TV ads, to “defund Obamacare” precipitated a government shutdown.

Grand jury found enough evidence to indict JonBenet Ramsey’s parents By P. SOLOMON BANDA The Associated Press BOULDER, Colo. – A grand jury found enough evidence to indict the parents of JonBenet Ramsey for child abuse and accessory to first-degree murder in the 6-year-old’s death, newly unsealed documents revealed Friday, nearly a decade after DNA evidence cleared the couple. But the 1999 documents shed no light on who was responsible for the child beauty queen’s death, and 14 years later, authorities are no closer to finding her killer. The documents confirmed reports earlier this year that grand jurors had indeed recommended an indictment in the case, contrary to the longheld perception that the secret panel ended their work without deciding to charge anyone. At the time, then-District Attorney Alex Hunter didn’t mention an indictment, saying only that there wasn’t enough evidence to warrant charges against the Ramseys, who had long maintained their innocence. The grand jury met three years after JonBenet’s body was found bludgeoned and strangled in the basement of her family’s home in Boulder, the day after Christmas in 1996. Lurid details of the crime and striking video footage of the child in adult makeup and suggestive pageant costumes propelled the case into one of the highest-profile mysteries in the U.S., unleashing a series of true-crime books and TV specials. Many tabloid headlines later, tests in 2008 on newly discovered DNA left behind

The Ramsey home where JonBenet Ramsey was found is seen in Boulder, Colo., on the day in which new court documents were released in the Dec. 26, 1996, death of the 6-year-old. Grand jurors sought to indict both of her parents for child abuse resulting in death and being an accessory to a crime, including a first-degree murder that remains unsolved. by someone who touched JonBenet’s long underwear pointed to the involvement of an “unexplained third party” in her slaying, and not the Ramseys or their son, Burke. The tests led Hunter’s successor, Mary Patsy Lacy, to clear Ramsey the Ramseys, two years after Patsy Ramsey died of cancer. In a letter to John Ramsey, she called the couple “victims of this crime.” John Finding a Ramsey match in the nation’s growing DNA database could hold the best hope for someday solving the killing of JonBenet, who would now be 23. Her slaying is considered a cold case, open but not under active investigation.

One of John Ramsey’s attorneys, L. Lin Wood, said the documents released Friday are “nonsensical” and the grand jurors didn’t have the benefit of having the DNA results. “They reveal nothing about the evidence reviewed by the grand jury and are clearly the result of a confused and compromised process,” he said. While the killer’s identity is still unknown, Wood said there’s no mystery about the Ramseys’ role. “The Ramsey family is innocent,” he said. Boulder police, who were criticized for their handling of the investigation, issued a statement saying the documents show the grand jury agreed with investigators that probable cause existed to file charges. However, the statement acknowledged that the evidence would have to meet a higher standard than probable cause for prosecutors to take the case to trial.

Students in Mass. return to class

GOP aims at website, hopes to hit law The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – Congressional Republicans are waging war against a hapless website and hoping it leads to the destruction of “Obamacare,” the health care program they loathe so fervently. As a tactic, it’s no more likely to succeed than this autumn’s self-wounding decision by Republicans to force a partial government shutdown and flirt with default on the national debt. Or the dozens of previous GOP attempts to

defeat, defund or delay the law. Or their unsuccessful bid to have the Supreme Court declare unconstitutional the signature program of President Barack Obama’s first term. Rather than political or legal arguments determining its fate, it’s likely the health care overhaul will succeed or fail based on the reaction of millions of Americans in search of coverage. “Let me remind everybody that the Affordable Care Act is not just a website. It’s much more,” Obama said this week

as he took the lead in his administration’s efforts at damage control over the major online problems in the programs’ first signup month. He said that because of the law, which has been taking effect in stages for three years, “preventive care like mammograms and birth control are free through your employers” and young people up to age 26 can remain on their parents’ coverage plans. Republicans skip over any well-received benefits the law might have bestowed.

Democrats were having none of it, even though they express their own frustration and anger at the debut of the website. “Here we go again, another cynical effort by the Republicans to delay, defund or ultimately repeal the Affordable Care Act,” said Rep. Frank Pallone, D-N.J., speaking at the same hearing. “Their effort, obviously, isn’t to make this better but to use the website and the glitches as an excuse to defund or repeal Obamacare.”

Instead, they speculate that the website is a gateway not to health care coverage but to bigger and more painful failures in the near future. “Will enrollment glitches become possible provider payment glitches? Will patients show up at their doctor’s offices or hospitals to be told that maybe they aren’t covered or even in the system?” asked Rep. Fred Upton, R-Michigan, as he chaired a hearing of the House Energy and Commerce Committee on Thursday.

The ASSOCIATED PRESS DANVERS, Mass. – Students at the Massachusetts school where a classmate allegedly killed a teacher returned Friday, surrounded by extra safety measures as well as tributes to the victim, including trees adorned with pink ribbons, her favorite color. Class es resumed at Danvers High School two days after student Philip Chism, Colleen 14, was charged Ritzers with murder in the death of Colleen Ritzer, a 24-year-old math teacher. School had been canceled the previous two days. On Friday, the U.S. flag outside the school flew at halfstaff, and the pink ribbons hung from a row of six trees in front of the building. The day was stressful and difficult, said freshman Cambria Cloutier, 14. “Everyone was just kind of crying, crying together. Everyone,” she said.

Obama returns to campaign mode in N.Y. The ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK – President Barack Obama is opening a six-week burst of fundraising for Democrats, offering an early look at how he’ll frame the messy health overhaul rollout and recent government shutdown for donors and voters ahead of next year’s pivotal midterm elections. After putting political events on hold for about a month, Obama was returning to campaign mode Friday in New York, first at a top-dollar fundraiser for House Democrats, flanked by film producer Harvey Weinstein and prominent CEOs before another, closed-door event benefiting the national Democratic Party. Before the fundraisers,

President Barack Obama tries an “Earthquake Tower Challenge” as he visits a classroom Friday at Pathways in Technology Early College High School in Brooklyn to highlight the importance of education in providing skills for American workers in a global economy. Obama visited a Brooklyn high school to showcase a rare partnership among public schools, a public universi-

ty system and IBM that lets students finish high school with an associate’s degree in computers or engineer-

ing. With budget talks set to resume next week, he urged Congress to put more money into education. “I don’t want to hear the same old stuff about how America can’t afford to invest in the things that have always made us strong,” Obama said. “Don’t tell me we can afford to shut down the government, which costs our economy billions of dollars, but we can’t afford to invest in our education systems. There’s nothing more important than this.” Accompanied by Bill de Blasio, the Democratic mayoral candidate who is leading in the polls going into the Nov. 5 general election, Obama made a campaign-style appearance at Junior’s, a Brooklyn landmark known for its cheesecakes. He shook hands, gave

out hugs, posed for photos and bought two cakes to go, one plain and one topped with strawberries. His fundraising schedule condensed, Obama will headline at least nine fundraisers from Florida to Texas to California before the end of November for Democratic campaign committees. Michelle Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are holding their own events. Traditionally the president is a party’s most potent fundraising tool, and the effort isn’t without potential reward for Obama. A return of Congress to full Democratic control next year would open the door to sweeping policies Obama would love to enact, but Republicans refuse to consider.

Syria: Al-Qaida linked rebel killed Germany, France want U.S. to agree to curb spying

The ASSOCIATED PRESS BEIRUT – Syrian staterun TV reported Friday that the leader of a powerful alQaida-linked rebel group has been killed – a claim that if confirmed would be a huge blow to fighters trying to topple President Bashar Assad. At least one rebel commander denied the report. Questions remained over whether Abu Mohammad al-Golani, head of Jabhat al-Nusra, or the Nusra Front, had indeed died. State TV said he was killed in the coastal province of Latakia, but did not say when or give details. Later Friday, it removed the report from its website without explanation. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which closely monitors the fighting in Syria, said senior Nusra Front leaders contacted by activists in Latakia and the eastern Deir el-Zour province denied al-Golani had been killed. Other Nusra Front sources said they could not confirm or deny the report “because contact with al-Golani was cut,” the Observatory said in a statement. A rebel commander in a Damascus suburb contacted by The Associated Press said he believed al-Golani was “alive and well” based on his contacts with other fighters including those from Nusra Front. He declined to elaborate or be identified for security concerns. The report comes as the fragmented rebels have suffered significant losses on the battlefield. Syrian troops killed at least 40 opposition fighters, including Nusra Front members, earlier Friday in an ambush near Damascus, the government said. Assad’s forces backed by Lebanese Hezbollah gunmen also seized control of a rebel ammunition supply route on a highway linking the capital

In this photo released by the Syrian official news agency SANA, weapons and ammunition are seen on the ground that were carried by Syrian rebels after they were killed Friday by Syrian government forces near Damascus. Syrian government troops on Friday ambushed rebels, killing at least 40 opposition fighters, state media reported. to its eastern suburbs — part of a blistering government offensive to bolster its position amid an international push for peace talks. The Nusra Front has emerged as one of the most effective among rebel groups fighting Assad, and it has claimed responsibility for numerous suicide bombings against government targets. The U.S. State Department put the group on its list of terrorist organizations for its connections to al-Qaida. Al-Golani, who fought previously in Iraq, is a shadowy figure who is believed to have spent time recently in rebellious suburbs south of Damascus. Rebels have also gained footholds in mountainous regions of Latakia, which is largely loyal to Assad, and he may have gone there to direct fighting. Al-Golani gained prominence in April when he rejected an attempted takeover of the group by Abu Bakr

al-Baghdadi, the head of the Islamic State of Iraq, revealing a growing rift within al-Qaida’s global network. Al-Golani at the time distanced himself from claims that the two groups had merged into a group called the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. Instead, he pledged allegiance directly to al-Qaida’s leader Ayman al-Zawahri. He said that al-Baghdadi’s announcement of the merger was premature and that his group will continue to use Jabhat al-Nusra as its name. The group is more popular in Syria than the ISIL, which is largely made up of foreign fighters and has been criticized for its brutality and for trying to impose a strict version of Islamic law in areas under its control. Al-Golani’s death would likely strengthen ISIL at a time of growing infighting between al-Qaida extremists and the more moderate reb-

els from the mainstream Free Syrian Army. Assad’s forces have been gaining ground in rebel-held areas around the capital, the seat of his power, and have made progress against outgunned and fragmented fighters in several areas. On Friday, the state-run news agency SANA said 40 rebels died in the ambush near Otaiba, adding that soldiers seized a large arms cache, including anti-tank rockets. The area is part of a region known as Eastern Ghouta, which was the scene of a chemical weapons attack in August believed to have killed hundreds. The state-run Al-Ikhbariya television station broadcast footage showing more than a dozen bodies near the largely dried-out Otaiba lake, some wearing flak jackets strapped with ammunition. Automatic rifles and hand grenades lay nearby.

BRUSSELS – Indignant at reports of U.S. electronic espionage overseas, the leaders of Germany and France said Friday they will insist the Obama administration agree by year’s end to limits that could put an end to alleged American eavesdropping on foreign leaders, businesses and innocent citizens. German spy chiefs will travel to Washington shortly to talk with U.S. officials about the spying allegations that have so angered European leaders, including whether Chan- Francois cellor Angela Hollande Merkel’s own French cellphone was president monitored by the National Security Agency. Merkel and French President Francois Hollande, at the final day of a European Union summit in Brussels, did not offer many specifics on what they want President Barack Obama and his intelligence chiefs to agree to. A former French counterintelligence agent, however, told The Associated Press the European allies will likely demand the Americans sign off on a “code of good conduct” for intelligence-gathering, and could use the espionage dispute as leverage against the United States in upcoming trade talks. “I think France and Germany would want guidelines,” said Claude Moniquet, who now directs the Brussels-based European Strategic and Intelligence Center. But he was dubious there would be much change in intelligence agencies’ real-world behavior. “Everyone swears on the

Bible,” Moniquet said. “And after that it’s business as usual.” This week alone, there have been headlines in the European press about the U.S. scooping up millions of French telephone records and perhaps listening in on Merkel’s calls. A British newspaper said it obtained a confidential memo indicating that the personal communications of up to 35 foreign leaders may have been subject to U.S snooping in 2006. On Friday, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said in Brussels that he had instructed his foreign minister to summon the U.S. ambassador in Spain Angela to obtain inforMerkel mation on news German reports that chancellor Spain has been a target of U.S. spying, but insisted that his government was unaware of any cases. In a front-page story, Spain’s leading newspaper El Pais cited unidentified sources that saw documents obtained by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden as saying they showed the agency had tracked phone calls, text messages and emails of millions of Spaniards, and spied on members of the Spanish government and other politicians. Hollande, the French president, said his country and Germany decided to seek a “framework of cooperation with the United States so that the surveillance practices end. We fixed a deadline by the end of the year.” “They [the Americans] told us it was in the past and now there’s a will to organize things differently,” Hollande told a post-summit gathering of reporters. “Fine, let’s do it.”

Nigeria rebels in touch with the kidnappers of United States mariners By MICHELLE FAUL The Associated Press LAGOS, Nigeria – Rebels in Nigeria’s troubled and oilrich Niger Delta said Friday they have been contacted by the kidnappers of two U.S. mariners and can help ensure their safety. Nigerian Navy spokesman Capt. Kabir Aliyu said a rescue operation has been mounted for the men, whom U.S. officials identified as the captain and chief engineer of the U.S.-flagged C-Retriever offshore supply vessel taken in a Wednesday afternoon attack off the coast of Nigeria. An email reportedly from the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta said Friday the Americans were captured by a “heavily armed auxiliary outfit” off the town of Brass in the Gulf of Guinea. “The Americans will not be handed over for our direct custody but we will have the influence to visit them and ensure that they are well looked after until their subsequent release,” the statement

said. Almost all foreigners kidnapped are released once ransoms are paid. A U.S. civilian kidnapped last year from Nigeria’s oil-refining city of Warri was freed after a week in captivity. Nigeria’s navy has rescued at least two hostages this year and reported killing several pirates in counterattacks to prevent ship hijackings. The MEND statement warned such attacks are the result of “unresolved root issues” compounded by the detention of several rebels and “a monumental Niger Delta amnesty fraud,” referring to a 2009 peace agreement in which several MEND leaders were bought off by the government. Some now command security companies protecting the assets of the international oil companies that were the enemy. The agreement has brought relative peace to the area on land though activists and criminals are blamed for the theft of an estimated 200,000 barrels of oil a day.

Family hopes to file formal suit • TEEN Continued from page A1 handcuffed on the ground and tried to get up to say something to the officers, before being pulled to the ground by the officers, said Tom Novak, the boy’s father. “He was being a little unruly but they didn’t have to grab his head and smash it to the pavement,” Novak said. “That was just anger. That’s rage, in my opinion.” Novak discussed the alleged incident with reporters Friday at Pino’s law office in McHenry. The family hopes to file a formal lawsuit within the coming weeks. Undersheriff Andrew Zinke said the Sheriff’s Office stands

by the three officers involved in the incident after officials reviewed the video and audio recordings taken from the officer’s squad car. The officers, he said, remain on duty. “I’m extremely confident that the professionalism of our officers will show through,” Zinke said. The family is seeking civil damages for loss of normal life, pain and suffering and unpaid medical bills. They also want a special prosecutor to investigate possible criminal charges against the unidentified officers, Connor said. “He is 17 and likely has permanent brain damage and likely won’t be the same person after this incident,” Connor said.

Pyle has court dates Friday in Rockford, McHenry County • PYLE Continued from page A1 boy, who was 10 years old at the time, on a trip to Wisconsin in December 2008. Pyle has pleaded not guilty to all charges. Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Love said he “expects” Pyle to take the deal, and change his plea, although Love declined to discuss the specifics of any offers tendered to Pyle. “We’re expecting that it will happen, but we’re not saying it will. It’s not a done deal,” Love said. Pyle’s Federal Public Defender Paul Gaziano could not immediately be reached for comment. If convicted of the most serious federal charge against him, Pyle faces a sentence of 30 years up to life in prison.

McHenry County Assistant State’s Attorney Michael Combs, who also is chief of the criminal division, has said the state’s case would move forward once the federal one was wrapped up. “My thought was that if they could prove the case federally, it would entice him to plead without putting a child on stand,” Combs said. “It would spare that kid going though the trial.” Pyle has scheduled court dates Friday in both Rockford and McHenry County. But Love said he believes it’s unlikely there will be a change of plea on that day. Pyle headed the Sheriff’s Office evidence division since June 2010, but was relieved of his law enforcement duties shortly after his first arrest. He had specialized in cases that required computer and Internet forensic work.

No damage after Japan quake The ASSOCIATED PRESS TOKYO – An earthquake of magnitude 7.3 struck early Saturday off Japan’s east coast, the U.S. Geological Survey said, triggering small tsunamis but causing no apparent damage. Japan’s meteorological agency said the quake was an aftershock of the magnitude 9.0 earthquake and tsunami that struck the same area in 2011, killing about 19,000 people and devastating the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear power plant. Tsunamis of up to 15 inches were reported Saturday at four areas along the coast, but a tsunami advisory was lifted less than two hours after the quake. Japanese television images of harbors showed calm waters. The quake hit at 2:10

Districts by comparison

Continued from page A1 A comparison of District 155 to others in the county and state show the realities do differ. A history of financial information, according to the Illinois Interactive Report Card, shows that average teacher salaries have continually increased to the current $94,866 level in District 155, but administrative spending is not as high as it was in previous years. However, department chairman salaries are included in the teacher average salaries for District 155 – a rare reporting practice that will end in 2014. The general administration spending at $1.19 million is at its lowest level since 2005, when it was $1.14 million. Tax rates also are lower than in past years when it peaked in 2002 at $2.18 per $100 of equalized assessed valuation. When it comes to the two other high school districts in McHenry County, District 155 tops the list in both average teacher salary and student achievement based on state standards. Marengo Community High School District 154 has an average teacher salary of $69,174, and McHenry Community High School District 156 has an average salary of $72,196. But when it comes to students meeting or exceeding state standards, District 154 has 63.2 percent of its students hitting the mark while District 156 has 57.4 percent – 10

155, that homeowner would pay $1,146. With District 156 operating two high schools and District 154 running only one, the three other high school districts in Illinois with four high schools are more comparable in size to District 155. Those three districts – Bre-

men Community High School District 228, Glenbard Township High School District 87 and Lincoln-Way Community High School District 210 – show differences on both sides of the financial spectrum. Bremen has slightly lower average salaries at $90,032, but far lower student scores with 41.2 percent meeting or exceeding state standards. Tax payments also are higher, with the $200,000 home owner paying $1,896. On the other side, Lincoln-Way has lower average salaries, lower property taxes and better student scores compared with District 155. Lincoln-Way teachers in suburban Will County are paid $82,262 on average and 72.1 percent of students meet or exceed state standards. The owner of a $200,000 home pays $966. Justin Hubly, president of the District 155 teachers’ association, pointed to the difference in experience and number of faculty with advanced degrees as a key factor in the gap. Eighty-eight percent of District 155 faculty have master’s degrees compared with 72 percent at Lincoln-Way. “The data make me think they have a younger, less experienced staff than we do, which can lead to lower costs,” Hubly said. “I’m much more concerned about ... other Lake [and] northern Cook districts poaching our best teachers.” Districts such as 211 in Palatine and 214 in Arlington Heights are close to Crystal Lake and pay higher average salaries.

Fukushima prefectural government’s disaster management department, told The Associated Press by phone. “Luckily, the quake’s center was very far off the coast.” Mizuno said the operator of the troubled Fukushima plant, Tokyo Electric Power Co., said no damage or abnormalities have been found. Japan’s meteorological agency issued a 3-foot tsunami advisory for a long stretch of Japan’s northeastern coast, and put the quake’s magnitude at 7.1. The U.S. Pacific Tsunami Warning Center did not post warnings for the rest of the Pacific. The meteorological agency reported tsunamis of 40 centimeters in Kuji city in Iwate prefecture and Soma city in Fukushima, as well as a 20-centimeter tsunami at Ofunato city in Iwate and

Pension fund misuse is unacceptable The Northwest Herald Editorial Board offers this week’s thumbs up and thumbs down: Thumbs down: To officials past and present from the village of Island Lake for mismanaging more than $200,000 collected in police pension fund dollars by spending them to pay the village’s bills for unrelated matters. The village is supposed to simply collect the tax and hand it over to the pension board. The fact that they grabbed it for themselves is frankly appalling. Island Lake residents, and particularly members of the police department, should be outraged over the way this was handled, and an outside agency should conduct a thorough investigation. Thumbs up: To the residents of Alden and Hebron for raising the money to light up the Alden-Hebron football field for the first time. The Giants, despite their name, are usually a small team that plays home games on Saturday afternoons out of necessity. But renting lights for the team’s final home game of the season Friday night will leave them with a memory they won’t soon forget. Thumbs down: To President Barack Obama and the latest revelations about the U.S. spy program. Not only has the National Security Agency been tracking the phone records of its citizens in violation of the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, it’s done the same thing with our closest allies in Europe. The NSA may even have tapped the cellphone of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, severely damaging the trust U.S. allies have in our government. When Obama first ran for office, he said the U.S. had lost considerable standing in the world because of his predecessor’s foreign policy, and he intended to right the ship. Sorry, Mr. President. If anything, you’ve made things worse. Thumbs up: To the Illinois Senate for approving legislation that allows $8.4 million from a defunct hospital to be returned to taxpayers. The measure now goes to the House. The Belleville News-Democrat reported that after Wood River Township Hospital in southern Illinois, which closed in 2000, paid out pension benefits and retired debt that the hospital fund still had $8.4 million. Sen. Bill Haine, D-Alton, said there were several suggestions for what to do with the money, but the fairest and most popular solution was to give it back to taxpayers who live in the hospital’s taxing district.


What drone critics didn’t say There are strong arguments for a change in the U.S. program of drone attacks, and they are made in two reports released this week by human-rights groups. Both reports, however, fail to emphasize a salient point: The program has already been modified. The reports, by Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International, document cases of what appear to be disproportionate use of force and the needless killing of civilians. But the examples they cite predate President Barack Obama’s May 22 order to “heavily constrain” the U.S.’s use of drones. In a speech the next day, Obama promised that the United States would not use drones when it could capture a terrorist instead, and that it would act only against those who pose an imminent threat to the U.S. and when there was near certainty no civilians would be harmed. It’s hard to say for sure whether these reforms have reduced the excesses of the drone program. Yet early indications are encouraging. According to figures compiled by the Long War Journal, in the past five months there have been 12 drone attacks in Yemen causing two civilian deaths, compared with 15 attacks causing 13 civilian deaths in the same period last year. In Pakistan, attacks have fallen to 10 from 25, with no civilian casualties in either period. These figures are rough, because the Long War Journal relies on news reports. Humanrights researchers, on the other hand, can thoroughly investigate individual cases by interviewing eyewitnesses and sometimes examining evidence and the attack scene. Amnesty International’s report covered two drone attacks in Pakistan after May 22. In both cases, it concluded that all 22 of those killed were or appeared to be members of armed groups. More such investigations are needed to find out how well the U.S. is sticking to its current policies. That is not to say that the groups’ examination of past practices are of no value. On the contrary, the reports should be mandatory reading for future war-planners. Bloomberg News

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Kiwanis Santa Run To the Editor: Two-and-a-half years ago, the combined agencies of Big Brothers Big Sisters, Turning Point, CASA, Girls on the Run of Northwest Illinois and Main Stay asked the Crystal Lake Kiwanis Club to come up with a fundraiser to benefit the children of our county. As the mission of the worldwide Kiwanis Clubs is to serve the children of the world, we formed a committee and created the McHenry County Kiwanis Santa Run for Kids to do just that. After a year of planning, we had our extremely successful inaugural 5K/1-mile event that was held at the Raue Center for the Arts in downtown Crystal Lake. Almost 1,000 participants, volunteers and spectators showed up on the first Sunday of December last year to enjoy this fantastic event. The Santa run (or walk) is sure to become a family tradition that will last for years to come. Please go to or call 815459-1773 and join all the fun for a great cause. We have openings for runners, walkers and volunteers. As the McHenry County Kiwanis Santa Run is always held on the

first Sunday of December, this year’s event will be Dec. 1, with a 9 a.m. start. The Crystal Lake Kiwanis club is always looking for new members. If you enjoy doing good things for the community, you should link up with us and make positives happen. Mike Splitt

Crystal Lake Kiwanis

Biased media To the Editor: Once again I am left shaking my head after reading the newspaper Oct. 21. The cartoon blaming the entire government shutdown on Ted Cruz was the culprit. Since when does asking the president of our country to sit down and compromise leave all the blame at the feet of the Republicans? I honestly think the media have tried to pull the wool over our eyes again by not looking at the government shutdown in a fair and balanced way. Why couldn’t President Obama just consider the few concessions regarding Obamacare that would have prevented the shutdown? And when he turns and walks away with the ball, why does

the other team get all the blame? I would be satisfied if the blame was shared, and if the media reported the situation honestly. I guess that’s just too much to ask. Unfortunately, many people just don’t bother to dig beyond the surface to find out the facts. They just let themselves be led blindly. Our country is drastically in need of honesty, and it appears we no longer can count on the unbiased media that used to keep the government in check. They simply report what they want you to hear without regard to the consequences. Have you looked around lately? Do you really like what you see?

Need more Cal Thomases

Melanie Horn

Essie Hough



To the Editor: Martha Touhy (“Masterful definitions,” Oct. 20) and Donna Davis (“Response to Cal Thomas,” Oct. 4), why are you attacking Cal Thomas? He speaks the truth, and, obviously, neither of you can handle the truth. You don’t make comments about him until he speaks about something that concerns you directly. He is a journalist. We need these kind of journalists. They are few and far between. We need to know what is going on. The media are so biased it is frightening. Think.

Homelessness doesn’t discriminate Every year about this time, the weather begins to turn colder, and the number of people using the services of McHenry County PADS, a program of Pioneer Center for Human Services, rises. In fact, Census numbers show that up to 500 people rely on the program’s services annually. These individuals come from all walks of life and don’t fit the old-fashioned notion of the homeless bum sleeping on a park bench. More often than not, they are families with children, veterans or young adults – the vast majority of these having been thrust into homelessness by a life-altering event that was unexpected and unplanned for. Job loss, death of a loved one, divorce, a family dispute or sudden illness are among the top-ranking causes of homelessness. Depression, untreated mental illness, post-traumatic stress disorder and physical disabilities also are often found to contribute to the loss of a home and security. For families that can hardly pay their bills, a serious illness or disabling accident might


Laurie Bivona exhaust their savings and push them out onto the street. The Illinois Self-Sufficiency Standard shows that it takes a family of three (adult, preschooler and school-aged child) $59,908 annually to make ends meet. Today, the rapid, unexpected loss of jobs makes it nearly impossible for the average McHenry County family to meet this minimum. This limitation and the resulting home foreclosures cause great dislocation among families and has dramatically added to the number of people seeking help from McHenry County PADS, a McHenry County Continuum of Care to End Homelessness committee member that participates in advocating for federal funding to fight homelessness. Over the past five years, in McHenry County, the poverty rate nearly doubled, with more than 7,000 people labeled as living in extreme poverty. In McHenry County, the poverty


threshold for a family of three is $17,916. This would mean that more than 7,000 people try to make ends meet on only $8,958 a year. For these residents, an “everyday” life issue, such as a broken-down car, can be the final factor in placing them on the street. Since 2009, McHenry County PADS has seen: • A 48 percent overall increase in individuals served. • A 56 percent increase in the number of children as part of a family. • A 15 percent increase in veterans served. • A 52 percent increase in adult women seeking assistance. • A 15 percent increase in homelessness among the Hispanic community. By moving away from oldfashioned stereotypes about homelessness and acknowledging its true causes, McHenry County PADS works to provide resources and tools for people to navigate their way out of homelessness. Through the program’s day services center and transitional housing, an individual’s immedi-

ate needs for food, shelter and medication are met. But, more importantly, their need for case management; counseling; child care; transportation; and linkage to other resources and training in areas including budgeting, goal planning, job training, time management, anger management, parenting, assertiveness training and nutrition are met. All with the goal of helping people regain employment and return to mainstream lives. Unfortunately, each year, McHenry County PADS faces the same struggling economy and financial problems that many community members face. The program costs more than $800,000 to operate annually. Of this amount, more than $475,000 must be raised through community events and donations. If you would like to learn more about how to use McHenry County PADS services, call 815338-5231 or visit If you would like to learn how to help sustain this vital program, call 815-344-1230. • Laurie Bivona is director of marketing for Pioneer Center for Human Services.

D-200 FOUNDATION AWARDS GRANTS WOODSTOCK – District 200 teachers and professional staff now have an extra $23,000 to put toward their students thanks to help from the District 200 Education Foundation. The foundation presented grants to 66 recipients at a reception at Woodstock North High School earlier this month. The money will go toward enhancing and expanding the ability for teachers, media specialists and other staff to meet their students’ needs, according to a release from the foundation. This year, grants cover $4,000 to buy books, $3,600 toward technology in the classroom, $4,000 toward classroom supplies and more than $2,000 toward expanding fine arts programs, the release said. “The D-200 Education Foundation was formed over 20 years ago to help give teachers in the district the sources needed to enrich the classroom experience of D-200 students,” foundation Chairman Erich Thurow said. The foundation has awarded more than $440,000 in grants since 1993. For information, visit www.

CRYSTAL LAKE – William Fetzner’s career at Crystal Lake School District 47 started out of a crisis and ended in a legacy that will be difficult to match. Standing in the middle of the building that will carry Fetzner’s name, former District 47 Superintendent Bob Blazier recalled the day he hired Fetzner. A young teacher in the industrial arts department was a bit undisciplined, Blazier said, and he had no choice but to let him go as he could not trust the teacher in a classroom full of saws and tools. Blazier did not know Fetzner,

but was impressed with the application and hired him in a decision he would never regret. “It was amazing. In a matter of days, it was like this other guy had never been there,” Blazier said of Fetzner’s immediate influence. “He just never stopped.” Blazier was one of more than 100 community members, friends, family and former board members who attended the naming ceremony for the new William Fetzner Operations Center at 221 Liberty Road. Fetzner, who served more than 40 years in District 47, was the youngest principal ever hired at the time

Schools compete for security grants Online votes, texts will decide winner of nationwide contest By LAWERENCE SYNETT Two local schools are competing in a nationwide

contest in the hope of winning hundreds of thousands of dollars in security upgrades. Dundee-Crown High

School in Carpentersville and Lord and Savior Lutheran School in Crystal Lake have entered the Stanley Security Together for Safer School competition. The schools with the most votes will win $200,000 in Stanley Security-installed products and services. Three runners-up will receive

$100,000 in products and services. Each vote also counts as a chance for the competing schools to win other prizes. “You can never use too much security around the building, but that equipment isn’t cheap,” said Jeff Herb, associate principal for operations at Dundee-Crown.

“It’s expensive and takes a lot of money that isn’t readily available.” The competition comes at a good time for the school, Herb said, as officials have created a wish list of projects aimed at making the building more secure.

Lakemoor hires firm to Residents object ‘refine’ new village logo to plans to extend By EMILY K. COLEMAN LAKEMOOR – The village’s new logo is going to get some fine-tuning. The Village Board hired Five-by-Five Media Direction at its meeting Thursday evening to refine the village logo. The logo was adopted earlier this year as part of a community-wide contest, but not long afterward, some trustees raised concerns about the design, said Matt Dabrowski, the director of community and economic development. “They wanted us to take another look at it, see if there were ways we could refine it,” he said. “It seemed like

it was lacking something. ... They wanted to strengthen that logo to help in our branding of the village.” Five-by-Five Media Direction will develop a few options and present them to the board in December. The firm also will update the website to incorporate the new logo. The cost to the village is $3,000. As the village continues its development push, the community and economic development department also got its own website,, which operates as a landing page for the business community to gain information about the village and incentive programs that are available.

Dabrowski is working on adding a school section aimed at the residential market. “We need to increase our number of rooftops in the community,” he said. “One of the key things developers and eventually residential buyers look for is the status of the schools.” At its meeting Thursday, the Village Board also voted to combine the Plan Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals into one Planning and Zoning Commission, which Dabrowski said will help to streamline the development review process and maximize the pool of volunteers the village has.

road in McHenry By EMILY K. COLEMAN McHENRY – Plans to extend Venice Avenue to Riverside Drive this fall were postponed as residents raised concerns about the decision. David Gende, who has lived on Venice Avenue for 20 years, worries the move will take a quiet, residential street and make it a corridor for a lot more pedestrian and vehicle traffic. Venice Avenue is a narrow road that follows the north bank of the canal in downtown McHenry, which runs about two blocks east

from Court Street and deadends before Riverside Drive. By extending the road and making it oneway, the city hopes to give downtown visitors – especially those who use a public parking Derik lot off Court Morefield Street – access Village to a signal inadministrator tersection in order to cross or turn onto Route 120, Village Administrator Derik Morefield said.

County collecting old, unused medications NORTHWEST HERALD WOODSTOCK – The McHenry County Department of Health encourages residents to take advantage of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency’s “National Medication Take-Back Initiative” on Saturday. The one-day event is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at participating law enforcement sites. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses because of these

drugs. Studies show a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including the home medicine cabinet. Residents can bring prescription and over-the-counter, solid dose (tablets, capsules) medications in clear, sealed plastic bags for disposal. Items not accepted include liquids, intravenous (IV) bags/solutions, injectables, needles, lancets and sharps. Prescription labels should be removed (or personal information blocked out with

a permanent marker) from plastic bottles before tossing them into curbside recycling containers.

School officials hope to build on the success of a recent competition through Target, which saw 240 people vote for the Lutheran school. The school was awarded $1 for each vote. The school currently has locks on the doors, wire

Fetzner youngest principal hired • FETZNER Continued from page B1 he took over at South Elementary in 1978. He later retired in 2005 as assistant superintendent of operations, overseeing the construction of three elementary schools and a middle school. “His handp r i n t s a r e Jeff Mason literally on District 47 every build- board i n g i n t h i s president district,” said Jeff Mason, board president of District 47. “Bill had a huge heart and his heart was for the children in this district.” The new operations center will house the district

warehouse, curriculum storage, maintenance staff, print shop, food service and operations management. Rob Fetzner, son of William Fetzner and current District 47 board member, said the building name was a fitting way to keep his father’s legacy alive and a touching gesture from the community, which overwhelmingly submitted William Fetzner’s name during the naming selection process. William Fetzner died in 2011. “All of you have mentioned the impact he had on you, but I also want you to realize all of you had an impact on him,” Rob Fetzner told the crowd. “I want to thank you for this great honor. My family is excited, and I really appreciate my dad’s memory being kept alive.”

drivers visiting the downtown area and the neighborhood’s residents, he said. The extension has been included in city planning documents dating back to 2003, including the comprehensive plan and two downtown-specific plans, but with the city’s purchase of the Dobyn’s House site, 1202 N. Riverside Drive, city officials have revisited the idea. The Public Works Committee gave the go-ahead on the project at its Oct. 15 meeting, and work was scheduled to start Monday. Preliminary work on the city property that divides Venice Avenue and Riverside Drive will still start Monday, but the rest of the project won’t happen until spring at the earliest, Morefield said. Because the project will cost less than $10,000, which is available in the budget, and is included in city planning documents, it does not need to go to the City Council for final approval, Morefield said. The extension would not affect residents’ ability to park on the street, he said. While the project does not include any widening of the road, a five-year capital improvement program proposes installing curb and gutter.

Board votes to allow parking overnight • LOGO Continued from page B1 The board also voted to allow overnight parking on one side of village streets. Currently, parking is prohibited on all village streets between 2 and 6 a.m. because the village’s roads are “very narrow,” Village Administrator David Alarcon said. The change was proposed to address resident complaints about limited places to park, in particular families who have added to the number of cars they have because their children now are teenagers, he said.

A few weeks ago I mentioned the Golfer in My Life and I were planning on taking a day off of OCTOBER 26 & 27 work together. We had tossed around ideas of MCHENRY AREA JAYCEES HAUNTED HOUSE going to see the musical “Once,” heading to ROUTE 31, MCHENRY Madison or taking a Frank Lloyd Wright tour. Well, I’ve realized this is not going to happen. This haunted house returns for another scary year. Though I’m an avid planner, even the Golfer Admission is $9 per person or $15 for a fast pass; and I have “the best laid plans of mice and men” moments. He has been fighting a cold receive $1 off with a can food item donated for for two weeks and I haven’t pushed the issue. F.I.S.H. Hours are 7:30 p.m. through at least 10 A day of fun is officially off the list. But I must p.m. Located in the big red barn behind McDonsay, the Golfer has picked up his game. His ald’s on Route 31. dating game.


our schedules. “How about Monday” I offered. “Football. What about Tuesday?” “You know I don’t like to leave Pilates early. Check the times at both theaters for something at 7:30 or later.” “That’s kind of late.” “If we went on Monday, we could go earlier. Oh, wait, I remember. You just said Monday was out of the picture because of the NFL!” Turns out that Tuesdays are a great day for the show. There are always aisle seats open and the crowd is smaller, older and quieter. It feels like such a luxury to be there during the week. Isn’t there grocery shopping or laundry that needs to be done? No, not really. Another perk of being organized.

Yes, he and I have gone to the movies the past two Tuesdays! We have barely been on anything resembling a date for months and OCTOBER 26 & 27 now two in a row. Stand back, Jack! Like many couples that have been together a long “SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF time (a decade and a half; hard to believe we FLEET STREET” rang in Y2K together with a few cases of water RAUE CENTER FOR THE ARTS, CRYSTAL LAKE and some extra batteries), it is very easy to live life on two separate tracks, occasionally This musical thriller, the first full stage producpulling into the same station at the same time. tion of the 2013-2014 Williams Street Repertory Between his golf and my Pilates, football four season, is a chilling and suspenseful telling of a murderous barber and the resourceful proprietress days a week and “Breaking Bad” binge watching, the Golfer and I have a tendency to do of a pie shop. Tickets start at $25. Running select our own thing. It’s been nice to actually make dates through November 2. time to spend with each other. Of course, this is a date with the Golfer. Only the movie; no dinner afterwards or even concessions.


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

After he suggested going on a weekday, we had to figure out what one worked best with

As for the movies we saw, quick armchair reviews. “Captain Phillips” was well done but probably a bit long. The final scene with Tom Hanks and the military doctor delivers such raw emotion that I can see lots of nominations coming his way this award season. “Gravity” wasn’t my cup of tea but the film is beautifully made. The best part for me was looking over at the Golfer during the movie and seeing him in the 3-D glasses, looking like the third Blues Brother. To keep this trend going, we have plans to see “The Counselor” on Monday night. “Monday night? What about the football game?” I questioned the Golfer. “ NBA starts Tuesday. We’ve got Bulls/Heat.” I should have known. Have a good weekend! Autumn

“Captain Phillips” STARRING: Tom Hanks, Barkhad Abdi, Barkhad Abdirahman PLOT: This is the true story of Captain Richard Phillips and the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of the U.S.-lagged MV Maersk Alabama, the irst American cargo ship to be hijacked in 200 years. RATED: PG-13 for sustained intense sequences of menace, some violence with bloody images and substance use TIME: 2 hours, 14 minutes VERDICT: If you saw Paul Greengrass’s “United 93,” a terrifying depiction of one of the doomed flights on 9/11, you know this director can evoke a harrowing, real-life event like few others. In fact, you may not have recovered yet from the experience. So it’s no surprise that Greengrass has produced another expertly crafted, documentary-style film based on a real event – the 2009 hijacking of a cargo ship by Somali pirates and the five-day standoff that ensued, with the ship’s American captain, Richard Phillips, held captive in a stifling covered lifeboat after offering himself as a hostage. A major difference is this movie has a happy ending – for the captain, anyway, who was rescued in a dramatic high-seas Navy sniper operation. Three of the overmatched attackers were killed; the fourth is in a U.S. prison. More cinematically speaking, the difference is that “Captain Phillips” is a star vehicle. In some cases, this can detract from the sense of veracity of a truth-based film. Tom Hanks, though, delivers some of his finest work here, playing the Everyman role he does so well, in this case a fairly ordinary guy forced by circumstance to be a hero. And yet “Captain Phillips” is a remarkably unsentimental film, with an emotional catharsis coming only at the very end, when we’re all ready for some kind of release. This is where Hanks digs deepest as an actor. Oddly, the film falters only at the beginning – in a brief and awkward domestic scene between Phillips, preparing for what he assumes is a routine voyage, and his wife, Andrea (Catherine Keener, in a tiny part). The two share stilted dialogue on a drive to the airport, with her asking: “It’s gonna be OK, right?” and him commenting stiffly that the “world is moving so fast.” But once Phillips gets onto his ship, the movie truly starts. What Greengrass excels at is action – taut and visceral – and it happens as soon as the captain suddenly looks at a screen and sees two small dots moving toward the ship. Two skiffs are carrying bands of armed men; from an early scene on a Somali beach, we know they’ve been whipped into action by their warlords. When they realize they’ve happened upon a U.S.

61 Polaris Drive Lake in the Hills ship, they can’t believe their luck. What WE can’t believe is how a huge cargo ship is so vulnerable to small bands of armed men. But the Maersk Alabama has no gun power aboard, only huge hoses to repel pirates and their machine guns. They don’t work. Soon, four pirates have hoisted a ladder onto the ship. “I’m the captain now,” says their leader, Muse. And the ordeal begins. Greengrass and cinematographer Barry Ackroyd are at their most effective in scenes like the frightening search – in tense, dark spaces, in extreme closeup – by increasingly angry pirates hunting down the crew. On the other hand, this is where the camerawork gets ever more unstable and jittery. Good for dramatic effect – but bad if you’re susceptible to queasiness or nausea at such times. Be forewarned. Things get even more intense in the lifeboat, where the pirates are locked in with Phillips for several agonizing days. With the U.S. Navy bearing down, it’s pretty clear where it’s all headed. The only question: Who will die? The movie humanizes the pirates but is not inclined to forgive them. All four Somali actors are excellent, but especially Barkhad Abdi, memorable as Muse. As for Hanks, his final moments are his best, as Phillips registers in an intensely personal way the cumulative effects of what he’s endured. It’s safe to say those moments will be what’s remembered most from this movie, and for a long time. – The Associated Press

“Gravity” STARRING: Sandra Bullock, George Clooney, Ed Harris

PLOT: A medical engineer and an astronaut work together to survive after an accident leaves them adrift in space RATED: PG-13 for intense perilous sequences, some disturbing images and brief strong language TIME: 1 hour, 30 minutes VERDICT: In an age when we’re able to consume content so many different ways – and that’s a good thing, mostly – let’s declare right now there’s only one truly correct way to experience “Gravity,” Alfonso Cuaron’s thrilling new space film. In a theater. On a huge screen. And in 3-D. Yes, even for all you 3-D naysayers – we hear you, but this is the movie you HAVE to see in 3-D. And please, no matter how many months or years pass, don’t watch this film on your little smartphone. If you’ve seen the heart-pounding trailer, you’ll know that Sandra Bullock and George Clooney play astronauts who experience a traumatic accident in space. You may also know about the extraordinary special effects used to create this weightless cinematic world – so extraordinary that many are calling the film a landmark of the sci-fi

genre. But what you can’t know, until you’re in the theater, is just how much you’ll feel like you’re up there in space, feeling its vastness, perhaps even feeling cold. And how you might let yourself forget, momentarily, that this movie wasn’t shot on location. And how you’ll ask yourself, how did they DO this? And how you’ll then forget the question, because you’ll be caught up once again in this 90-minute thrill ride. Cuaron’s filmmaking prowess is no secret. His 2007 “Children of Men” was a masterful evocation of a bleak futuristic world where women can no longer conceive, and warring gangs struggle for control of the dying human race. But while that film teemed with people, “Gravity” has but a few. It aims to evoke the full terror of true solitude – indeed, Bullock is alone much of the time. And though it doesn’t take place on Earth, “Gravity” is in a way closer to our reality – not a futuristic world, but one that exists today, though you’d have to be on a space mission to get there. If you were, you’d want to be with Matt Kowalski (Clooney), the experienced mission commander, cocky and totally in charge. He jokes easily with Mission Control (voiced by Ed Harris, in a nice nod to “Apollo 13” and “The Right Stuff”) while spacewalking with a new jet pack, but when disaster strikes, he’s the guy you want nearby. Bullock is Ryan Stone, a medical engineer installing a new system on the Hubble telescope. She’s on her first mission, and feeling rather queasy, when suddenly a massive field of debris comes hurtling by, sending Stone spiraling out of control. All this and more is established in a single, stunning, 13-minute opening shot. And Cuaron is just getting started. While we’ll reveal no more plot, it’s worth noting that the film’s one flaw stems from an effort to give Bullock’s character more of a backstory than necessary, perhaps an overly sentimental one. But overall, the actress finds that difficult balance between frailty and tenacity. And Bullock’s grounded presence – pun intended – is a huge plus here. The script is by Cuaron and his son, Jonas, but kudos are also due cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki and visual effects supervisor Tim Webber, for their seamless blend of live action, animation and CGI. As for the 3-D, never once does it feel anything less than totally integrated with the film’s purpose. As the credits roll, you may find yourself thinking about real space launches you’ve watched, or watching man walk on the moon, and remembering that feeling of awe at how man ever developed the technology to explore space in the first place. But save a bit of movie-lover’s awe, too, for Cuaron, who has many of us feeling closer to space than we’ve ever felt before. – The Associated Press

Son’s long hair brings out worst in mom’s abusive clan Dear Abby: I have a 10-yearold son. “Zack’s” a great kid, creative, funny and athletic. He has decided to grow his hair long. My husband and I figure it’s not illegal or immoral, so why fight it? My family does not share our opinion. My mom and sister are cruel in their opposition to Zack growing his hair. They tell him he looks like a girl and call him names. There have been bribes, bullying and instances of utter insanity on their part, trying to make him cut it. My sister’s son has been physically and verbally cruel to Zack, and she thinks it’s funny. She’s repeating a pattern from when we were children of being the “toughest” – if you can’t handle the abuse, you’re a “baby.” I need to know how to stand up to these family members for my son. It’s a struggle for me to speak to them faceto-face, and they have called me a coward for sending email messages. My mother lives alone and sometimes has suicidal thoughts. Zack is stressed because he loves his grandma, but can’t deal with her harassment. Can you help? – Guilt-Ridden And Stressed In Ontario, Canada Dear Guilt-Ridden And Stressed: I’ll try. Somehow, for your son’s sake, you must find the courage to tell your

sewage onto everyone else? – Allison In Brooklyn Dear Allison: The most obvi-

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips mother and your sister to their faces that if they don’t knock it off immediately, they’ll be seeing a lot less of you and Zack. The dynamics in your family are unhealthy – but you are an adult now and no longer have to tolerate it. Because Zack is athletic, enroll him in self-defense classes and make sure he knows he does not have to tolerate physical abuse from anyone and that includes his cousin. As to “Grandma,” your son’s emotional health must take precedence over hers. I seriously doubt she’ll kill herself if she doesn’t have your son to make miserable, so don’t feel guilty about it. Dear Abby: I was on a bus yesterday, and a woman seated near me complained about how long the trip was taking for so long and so loudly I ended up “catching” her negative energy. Because I couldn’t find a nice way to shut her up, I finally put on earphones and turned on my music. When there is a toxic person in a public place, what is the best way to get them to stop spewing their hateful

ous way would be to put physical distance between you and the person, if that’s possible. If it isn’t, then the way you handled it was appropriate. In the interest of safety, I would not recommend confronting a possibly emotionally disturbed individual. Dear Abby: My wife and I are retired and financially secure. Our three adult children shower us with costly gifts on Christmas, birthdays, and Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Most of them end up on our closet shelves. How can we tell them what we would really prefer is just a kind, handwritten (not store-bought) note with possibly a recent picture of them or our grandchildren enclosed? – Dad Who Has It

All Dear Dad: Why not say it the same way you expressed it to me? You are financially secure. Your closets are filled. You don’t have room for any more “things,” and this is the kind of gift you would prefer. If they disregard your wishes and give you more gifts you can’t use, you can always donate them to a needy family.

Strength training can slow bone loss Dear Dr. K: I’ve heard weight-bearing exercises are a good way to prevent osteoporosis. Can you describe a few? Dear Reader: Use it or lose it: That message applies to most parts of our body. We see it most clearly with the muscles. If we don’t use them, they wither. But if we regularly challenge them, they bulk up. The same is true with bones. Most of our bones bear our weight, except when we’re lying down. That’s what they “want” to do. If we don’t give them enough time each day to do that, they tend to get thin. This is a particular problem if a person also has a genetic tendency to develop osteoporosis. Inactivity speeds the thinning of the bones that occurs in osteoporosis. This makes them more susceptible to fractures. Weight-bearing (or strength-training) exercise is any activity that puts stress on bones. Walking and climbing stairs are examples. Weight-bearing exercises can help to slow bone loss and stimulate new bone growth. A complete strength-training workout

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff involves eight to 12 exercises. Together, they exercise all your major muscle groups. Below, I’ll describe three strength-training exercises. They are designed for older adults and people who are new to strength training. Do strength-training exercises two or three times a week. Allow at least 48 hours between workouts. Try to do each exercise eight to 12 times, or repetitions (“reps”). These repetitions make up one set. Do two to four sets of each exercise. Rest for 30 to 60 seconds between sets. To do these exercises, you’ll need a sturdy chair, athletic shoes, an exercise mat and weights. (You should be able to do no more than eight to 12 reps of each exercise with the weights you choose.) • Bridge: Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Put your hands next to your hips with palms flat on the floor. Keep your back straight as you lift

your buttocks as high as you can off the floor. Pause. Lower your buttocks without touching the floor, then lift again. • Standing calf raise: Stand with your feet flat on the floor. Hold on to the back of your chair for balance. Raise yourself up on the balls of your feet, as high as possible. Hold briefly, then lower. • Overhead press: Stand with your feet slightly apart. Hold a dumbbell in each hand on either side of your shoulders, at shoulder height, with your palms facing forward. Slowly lift the weights straight up until your arms are fully extended. Pause. Slowly lower the dumbbells to shoulder level. I’ve put additional strength-training exercises, as well as illustrations of the exercises I’ve described above, on my website. You don’t need to go to a gym; a small investment in buying exercise mats and weights allows you to do all the exercises at home.

O’Loughlin ponders future on ‘Hawaii Five-O’



Saturday, October 26, 2013 • Section B • Page 10

Alex O’Loughlin says he’s signed up for two more seasons of “Hawaii Five-0” but is looking forward to a career beyond the hit TV series. The 38-year-old actor plays policeman Steve McGarrett on the CBS series, now in its fourth season. He said the intense workload and shooting schedule had kept him out of other potential projects. “Like I read Doug Liman’s script, ‘Everest,’ which he’s about to start directing – it’s amazing and it’s invigorating. But it’s also heartbreaking at the same time because it feels so far away from me at the moment,” O’Loughlin said. “I’ve never played one character for this long. And it’s network TV, too, so it comes with its own set of challenges from the artist’s perspective. But I’m very lucky. My kids will get to go to good schools, we all eat organic food, and I live in Hawaii.” The actor noted that the show – a reimagining of the 1970s series starring Jack Lord – had overcome a number of hurdles to remain consistently highly rated. “I mean, we’ve had cast troubles. I got really hurt and had to go and sort myself out in the second season. We’ve had injuries, we’ve had all sorts of things. It just keeps going,” he said. “We can’t seem to kill it. So I guess it’s going to stick around for a while.”


Chan completes mission with film

MTV premieres series on app MTV released a full season of a new series about a luckless high school football team on its mobile application Friday, a week before the first episode is shown on television. It appears to be a new milestone in the fast-moving world of technology changing traditional television content, much like when Netflix made an entire season of “House of Cards” available at once through the streaming service. MTV made its free app available on iPhones, iPads, iPods and the Xbox 360 in June, and nearly 2 million have been downloaded. The series, “Wait ’Til Next Year,” is a 12-episode docudrama about a high school football team that had lost 43 games in a row and the community surrounding it. “It will be fun to see if we can get them to come back and watch on television,” said Kristin Frank, MTV’s executive vice president of connected content. That’s always been a worry among networks about new content delivery forms, since the financial underpinning of the business is still largely dependent on viewers watching programs – and their commercials – on television. But MTV figures many people who watch the series on the app will become promotional vehicles themselves, spreading the word about it on social networks and encouraging others to watch on TV. MTV also experimented recently with its “flock to unlock” promotion of Miley Cyrus. The network released “extras” from its “Miley: The Movement” documentary on the app, provided a certain number of viewers tweeted requests. They did and, in effect, the fans who successfully “unlocked” the extra material provided MTV with free online publicity. During the Cyrus experiment, MTV saw an 82 percent increase week to week in the number of people downloading the app, the network said. VH1 recently made its new app available. The network aired reruns of last week’s popular documentary about the band TLC exclusively on the app for a week before it aired again on television, Frank said. The CMT and Logo networks also are readying apps to be available in the next few months.

Jackie Chan says his mission is complete. Chan wrote, directed and stars in “Chinese Zodiac,” an action comedy that centers on a team trying to steal some of the 12 bronze statues looted from a Chinese palace in 1860. Since the movie was released in China last year, two of the real statues were returned to China by Francois Pinault, head of Gucci’s parent company. The 59-year-old Hong Kong star praised their return, saying he hopes all such looted artifacts can be returned from Western museums. Chan says he isn’t quitting anytime soon. He completed filming on another installment in his “Police Story” franchise and is discussing another movie alongside “Rush Hour” co-star Chris Tucker. He said scheduling conflicts prevented him from joining Sylvester Stallone’s “Expendables 3” ensemble.

Vegas looks for attention with fest A cadre of volunteers and entrepreneurs are putting the finishing touches on what they hope will be downtown Las Vegas’ debutant ball: A sprawling music and food festival that takes over the city’s core this weekend. The inaugural Life is Beautiful event boasts many stock festival components: Dozens of indie acts, including big names like Beck and Vampire Weekend, whimsical flourishes like a pop-up park, and an array of art imported from the Burning Man desert carnival. And it has something else: Financial backing and logistical support from Tony Hsieh, the Internet billionaire who founded Zappos, the online clothing store, and is trying to remake Las Vegas into a world-class city.

Without that support, the festival would have gone to another, more established town, founder Rehan Choudhry said.

Bloom and Kerr announce split The marriage of actor Orlando Bloom and model Miranda Kerr has ended – even as Bloom tackles one of the most romantic roles in history, Romeo. Publicist Robin Baum released a joint statement Friday that said Kerr and Bloom “have been amicably separated for the past few months” and “recently decided to formalize their separation” after six years together. The 36-year-old actor, who starred in “The Lord of the Rings” and “Pirates of the Caribbean” films, and the 30-year-old supermodel were married in 2010. They have a 2 1/2 year-old son, Flynn.

Wachowskis hope to surprise with film The Wachowski siblings say they’re hoping to again surprise audiences with the science-fiction movie “Jupiter Ascending,” starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis. Andy and Lana Wachowski said in an interview Thursday night they were overseeing editing and special effects for the movie set for release next summer. “It’s a science fiction space opera,” Lana Wachowski said outside an Australians in Film awards dinner. “It has a lot of things from a lot of genres that we love. It’s got a lot of original action, it’s got a lot of romance.” Andy Wachowski, 45, said editing “Jupiter Ascending,” which the siblings wrote and are directing together, has been smoother than last year’s ambitious, multi-layered book adaptation “Cloud Atlas,” though he called the new film’s visual effects “way more complicated.”

CL South grad Cooper a wanted man

Crystal Lake South graduate Fahn Cooper (front), shown in 2012 with Bowling Green, is playing this season at College of DuPage. The left tackle has received scholarship offers from such major Division I programs as Oklahoma, Texas A&M and Texas Tech.

College of DuPage tackle has offers from Oklahoma, Texas A&M, Texas Tech By JOE STEVENSON The offers and interest Fahn Cooper receives on a daily basis are nothing like three years ago. Cooper started at left tackle for Crystal Lake South, and his size alone – 6-foot-5 and 300 pounds – warranted looks from NCAA Division I recruiters. But looking back now, Cooper knows he could have done more.

“In high school, I never really saw the potential in myself and took things as seriously as I should have,” Cooper said. “By the time I started to bloom and become a very talented football player, I was a senior and schools came through to look at [linemates] Jake Bernstein and Phil Hespen. I was overlooked, and it was all on me. I kind of saw this as an opportunity to rectify all that.” Cooper landed at D-I Bowling Green, a strong program in

the Mid-American Conference, but a place at which he never was truly happy. Even after starting 13 games as a redshirt freshman last season, Cooper wanted a change. The 2011 South graduate transferred to College of DuPage this summer and has flourished as the Chaparrals’ left tackle. He has about 20 D-I offers – with Oklahoma, Texas A&M and Texas Tech topping the list – and more rolling in. Cincinnati, Boise State, Ken-

tucky and Oregon State are some of the other top schools which have offered. Cooper is making the most of his “do-over.” By January, he likely will be at a major D-I school getting ready for spring practices. In two more years, DuPage assistant head coach Kenny DuBose, the Chaparrals’ recruiting coordinator, thinks Cooper could be headed for the NFL.

Marian Central junior Liam Stoll celebrates Friday after scoring the first goal of the game during the first half of the Class 2A Marian Central Regional final against Woodstock North. Marian won, 4-3.

Blaz’s late goal beats Woodstock North By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO WOODSTOCK – All week Marian Central soccer coach Jim Colvin had his team run three-minute drills in which they were down one goal and needed to score before time expired. So it was fitting that the topseeded Hurricanes found themselves in a situation during Friday’s Class 2A Marian Central Regional final against No. 3 Woodstock North where they could call on that experience. Just 51 seconds after the Thunder tied the score on a mad scramble at the net – a goal no one on the Thunder took credit for – Hurricanes senior midfielder Riley Blaz secured the ball off a feed from teammate Liam Gries in the waning minutes of his final home game. Blaz delivered a strike into the back of the net with 1:59 remaining, and the Hurricanes held on

Marian Central advances to play Vernon Hills on Wednesday in a Grayslake North Sectional semifinal. for a 4-3 win. “It’s truly unbelievable,” Blaz said. “I couldn’t have asked for a better way to end it here. ... We kept our heads up and played through it.” Marian (12-5-1) advances to Wednesday’s Grayslake North Sectional semifinal where they play Vernon Hills. “We’re all proud, it was a good season from all of us,” Thunder senior defender Cody Kupsik said. “We’re all glad about where we started to what we became.” The Hurricanes’ first regional title since 2009 didn’t come easily. Woodstock North (11-

12-1) found new life with 18:21 remaining in the game, trailing 3-1. Thunder junior forward Chris Niese beat Marian’s goalkeeper to the ball in the box and flicked it toward the net. Two Marian defenders were in position to clear the ball but instead deflected it in for an own goal. Clinging to a 2-1 lead approaching midway through the second half, Marian was searching for an insurance goal. Awarded a free kick at midfield, junior forward Hunter Labas headed the ball on net off the kick, hitting the crossbar. But junior forward Connor Hull was there to finish the job, heading the ball into the net for a goal and 3-1 lead. Ten minutes into the match, Blaz found junior forward Liam Gries, who capitalized on the open look delivering a strike into the top right corner of the net.

BUFFALO GROVE – Crystal Lake Central’s Evelyn Youel and Jillian Wallace went up, 4-1, in the first set of their quarterfinal doubles match against New Trier on Friday at the IHSA Girls Tennis State Tournament but could Evelyn not sustain that Youel momentum. Youel and Wallace lost to the Trevians’ Cammy Frei and Lily Schroeder, 6-4, 6-3, and will play in the consolation Jillian quarterfinals Wallace Saturday. Losing the lead and the match was a combination of mistakes by the Tigers and strategic play by New Trier. Wallace said they never felt out of the match but did not play as consistently as they typically do. “We were there,” Wallace said. “[We had] a lot of unforced errors we need to cut down on.” That inconsistency was particularly evident on critical points. Youel and Wallace credited Frei and Schroder with playing well but took responsibility for the loss. “We had a lot of deuce and add-in points we didn’t finish,” Youel said. “They weren’t that much better than us.” Tigers coach Katie Lashbrook said her team had errors but felt New Trier’s play forced them into some poor shots. “They were making us not play well,” Lashbrook said. Not allowing Youel and Wallace to control the net had a huge impact on the match. Lashbrook said Frei and Schroeder consistently kept the ball deep in the court, which forced Youel and Wallace to play much of the match with one up at the net and the other at the baseline. Getting to the net together has been a staple of success for Youel and Wallace all season. “We tried to come in but they were keeping us back,” Lashbrook said.

It wasn’t all bad for fans at the canceled Bucks game. Three reasons: 1. Fans were allowed to shoot baskets after the cancellation. 2. Anyone with tickets to the game can exchange them for a regular-season game in November. 3. They didn’t have to watch the Raptors.

Northwest Herald /

Overhaul of defense needed in offseason It’s been fairly well documented that Jay Cutler, Matt Slauson, Roberto Garza, Devin Hester, Robbie Gould, Henry Melton, Corey Wootton, D.J. Williams, James Anderson, Tim Jennings, Major Wright and Charles “Peanut” Tillman, all Week 1 starters this year, will be free agents at the end of the season. What is a general manager to do? Phil Emery can’t re-sign them all and realistically shouldn’t want to. But what if they’re all allowed to hit the open market and none come back? Can the Bears do a quick rebuild around Matt Forte, Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, Martellus Bennett, Jermon Bushrod, Kyle Long, Jordan Mills, Julius Peppers, Stephen Paea, Shea McClellin, Lance Briggs, Chris Conte, Jon Bostic and Khaseem Greene? No. Offensively, you’d have some interesting parts to work with, but without the quarterback in today’s NFL, you have nothing. If Jay Cutler is allowed to leave after delivering nothing, it will be 28 years since the Bears last had a championship quarterback in Jim McMahon, and it took them 19 years after the nondescript Billy Wade to find him. On just what might you base the hope and belief that Emery will find the next one immediately? The good news is Cutler isn’t going anywhere unless Emery and coach Marc Trestman say good riddance. It’s impossible to imagine Cutler signing a new deal for anything less than $100 million over six or seven years with at least $45 million to $50 million guaranteed. If Joe Flacco, Matt Stafford and Tony Romo are worth that money, Cutler is too, and I don’t blame him for waiting. I don’t think any of them are worth it, but particularly Cutler based on what he’s accomplished. So you franchise Cutler. There’s certainly no one else on your list you’d use the tag on, and you continue to build around him, hoping he’ll force you to eventually “show him the money” based on his play next year. Now Trestman can continue to bring the Bears’ offense


BEARS INSIDER Hub Arkush into the 21st century and all is right in Bears Nation? Maybe not. Defensively, we have no idea whether Paea, McClellin and Conte can even play, and the early returns aren’t real promising. We know even less about Bostic and Greene. Based on the ages and injuries to the remaining group, the Bears could need a brand new defense – ALL 11 spots. So what can Emery do right now? Ah, there’s the other rub. The Bears are believed to have somewhere between $2.5 million and $3 million of cap space left. If they reserve enough for emergencies like quarterback Jordan Palmer and possibly more linebackers and defensive linemen, they really can’t afford to do much of anything. But enough gloom, let’s pretend it’s a perfect world and they can sign whoever they want. The two priority free agents on that long list to me are Gould and Tillman. Kickers are not a dime a dozen when you have one of the best, and Robbie is that. And I think re-signing Peanut for two years or even three, if I have to, is worth it whether he stays at cornerback or moves to safety as so many great corners have near the end. Other than that, I let everybody else hit the market and see who comes back when they learn the grass is not always greener elsewhere. Whether Bears fans like it or not, it’s time to pay the piper on defense. Rebuilding is the only option. With Cutler and his weapons together again with Trestman for at least one more year, there’s another year of hope and possibly excitement on that side of the ball. Then, instead of spending all their time worrying about free agents for next year, Bears fans can spend it praying Emery knows what he’s doing in the draft, as that is an open question for now as well. • Hub Arkush covers the Bears for Shaw Media and Write to him at

Grounds crew workers prepare the field Friday at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, where the Cardinals and Boston Red Sox are set to play Game 3 of the World Series on Saturday.


Series scene shifts; Cards feel at home St. Louis went 54-27 at Busch this season By BEN WALKER The Associated Press ST. LOUIS – From the Green Monster to the Gateway Arch. From the Charles River to the mighty Mississippi. From clam chowder to toasted ravioli. The World Series scene is shifting, and St. Louis ace Adam Wainwright couldn’t be happier. “We love Cardinal country,” he said Friday. For good reason, too. After Boston split the first two games at Fenway Park, now Dustin Pedroia, Jacoby Ellsbury and the rest of the Red Sox will get to see what makes this place so special. Especially in October. “Well, we love playing here at Busch Stadium. Like I said, it’s a sea of red,” pitcher Joe Kelly said. The free-spirited Kelly was set to start Game 3 on Saturday night against Jake Peavy. “This is what I’ve lived for my whole life – my whole baseball career, I should say,” Peavy said. “I’m as prepared as I’ll ever be – physically, mentally.” Also warmed up: a team of eight Clydesdales, ready to pull a red beer wagon around the warning track before the

first pitch. It’s also a tradition for fans to gather early at the Musial statue – there are two honoring Stan the Man, actually. Red Sox closer Koji Uehara took a moment to soak it all in. As he walked onto the field for a workout, the first-time visitor looked at the gleaming Arch hovering high beyond the center-field fence. The Cardinals rely on a lot more than pomp when they play in their own park. They led the NL in scoring while going 54-27 at Busch, and then let pitching take over in the postseason. St. Louis is 5-1 at home in the playoffs – in those five wins, opponents scored five runs. Boston has hit just .188 so far in the Series, with David Ortiz providing the biggest bop. He’s homered in both games and is 4 for 6 overall with five RBIs. With no designated hitter in the National League park, Ortiz will switch to first base. Manager John Farrell wouldn’t say whether Ortiz would start there for every game in St. Louis, but it’s a good guess regular first baseman Mike Napoli will be on the bench for a while. Farrell also said lefty-swinging Daniel Nava

8SPORTS SHORTS Rams-Panthers draws $47,250 in fines from NFL NEW YORK – The St. Louis Rams and Carolina Panthers drew a total of $47,250 in fines from the NFL for their chippy game last Sunday. Rams defensive lineman Chris Long received the biggest fine Friday, $15,750 for unnecessary roughness for throwing a punch during a skirmish in the third quarter of St. Louis’ 30-15 loss. Long was penalized and ejected after he was caught swinging his right hand at Panthers guard

PREP ROUNDUP Chris Scott as players from both sides were pushing and shoving. A pair of receivers – Carolina’s Steve Smith and St. Louis’ Brian Quick – were fined $7,875 for striking an opponent in the face. Also docked $7,875 were Rams guard Harvey Dahl for a late hit and Panthers safety Mike Mitchell for taunting. Four players were fined $15,750 for roughing the passer: Washington linebacker Brian Orakpo, Miami linebacker Jelani Jenkins, Houston defensive end Jared Crick and Tennessee

linebacker Akeem Ayers.

Wizards acquire Gortat from Suns for Okafor, pick WASHINGTON – Adding a front-court piece in hopes of finally returning to the playoffs, the Washington Wizards acquired center Marcin Gortat from the Phoenix Suns in a multiplayer trade Friday. Phoenix got injured center Emeka Okafor and a top-12-protected first-round draft pick in 2014 – giving the rebuilding Suns potentially four choices in

the opening round. The Suns also sent guards Kendall Marshall, Shannon Brown and Malcolm Lee to Washington so the deal will work financially. The Wizards are expected to waive all three. The 6-foot-11, 240-pound Gortat averaged 11.1 points and 8.5 rebounds last season. He is entering his eighth NBA season, and has averaged 8.6 points and 6.9 rebounds while playing for Orlando, Toronto and Phoenix. – Wire reports

Thunder rally from 2-goal deficit, fall short • SOCCER Continued from page C1 “Again Liam’s come into the game and made a huge impact,” Colvin said. Woodstock North (11-121) struggled to create against the Hurricanes’ defense in the first half, though it had two corner kick opportunities. With 20:39 remaining in the first half, Marian put together a counterattack off

sophomore goalkeeper Jake Higgins’ save off Woodstock North’s corner. Higgins threw the ball ahead to Labas, who dribbled past midfield before finding Gries. Gries beat the Thunder’s defense, and his goal gave Marian a 2-0 lead, which it took into halftime. Gries has scored four total goals in Marian’s past two playoff matches. “I’ve been working hard, just kept at it,” Gries said.

“With the help of my teammates I’ve been able to get open.” The Thunder came out of the half playing more aggressive offensively and put pressure on the Hurricanes’ defense. They finally broke through off a long sideline throw in by Niese. Junior forward Julio Campos gathered possession of the ball at the net, but his shot was deflected. However, teammate

Luis Balleno scored off the rebound as the ball snuck inside the right post to cut Marian’s lead to 2-1. “It sums up [our season],” Thunder coach Lauren Farley said. “We were down 2-0 at half and they just fought and fought and fought. That’s all you can ask your team to do, not get down on themselves and that is something I’m so proud they kept fighting through.”

Youel, Wallace in consolation quarterfinals • TENNIS Continued from page C1 And when they did get to the net, New Trier was able to pass them a number of times down the line. Those passing shots not only resulted in points but prevented Youel and Wallace from cheating to the middle of the

would start in left field instead of Jonny Gomes, who is 0 for 7 so far. “Obviously David’s bat, at all costs, needs to be in the lineup,” Peavy said. “David is a game-changer. He’s as clutch as anybody I can remember playing with or against.” “It just seems like he has a flair for the dramatic. When the situation is the biggest, he’s at his best,” he said. Ortiz hit a two-run homer off rookie sensation Michael Wacha in Game 2 that put Boston ahead 2-1 in the sixth inning, but St. Louis rallied in the seventh for a 4-2 win. The Red Sox will spend this weekend at the stadium a few blocks from the Mississippi River. “I believe our ballpark is very fair. I don’t think there’s one thing that would make our team any more effective in this park than any other,” Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. “It’s not like there’s the oddities, like a Green Monster or deep corners and gaps.” “But you can’t help but buy into the atmosphere, especially when you’re at home and every single thing you do gets such a positive response,” he said.

court. “They went down the alley a lot so we couldn’t roam,” Lashbrook said. Youel and Wallace will play Highland Park’s Nicole Berkman and Janine Cooper in the consolation quarterfinals and could potentially place fifth. Lashbrook said one of the things she loves

about her team is that they will not let the loss affect how they play the rest of the tournament. “The beauty of these two is they will come back [Saturday] and be 100 percent,” Lashbrook said. In the fourth round, Youel and Wallace defeated Maine South’s Kamila Czosnyka

and Marti Wind, 6-2, 6-2. Also Friday, Crystal Lake South’s Julia Thome in singles and Kelsey Laktash and Rachel Rasmussen in doubles lost in the fourth consolation round. Prairie Ridge’s Anna Kuechenberg and Mikaela McNally also lost in the fourth consolation round in doubles.

Iowa TE Fiedorowicz tries to extend streak Leddy’s pride on display BLACKHAWKS

Defenseman tries to earn ice time By MARK LAZERUS Chicago Sun-Times Nick Leddy’s not the most demonstrative guy in the Blackhawks’ dressing room. He’s not the type to complain, or vent his frustration, or, for that matter, to pat himself on the back. Already a veteran, but just 22, Leddy understands there’s a long way to go. But it’s a humbling thing to spend 56 or 57 minutes of a Stanley Cup Final game on the bench, just watching. Even more so to do it three times. Nick Leddy “Everybody’s got pride,” Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said. “They want to play. They want to do well. They want to contribute in a meaningful way.” So while you won’t hear Leddy whine about his near-benching during the last three games of the Hawks’ Stanley Cup run last spring, when he was a minus-8 with two points after being a plus-15 with 18 points in the regular season. You can see the lingering effects in the pace at which he’s playing, and in the level at which he’s working at practice. On one of the best and deepest defensive corps in the NHL, Leddy’s determined to earn – and keep – his minutes. “It wasn’t how I wanted it to work out, obviously,” Leddy said. “But I learned from it. I can always keep learning and always keep getting better.” Leddy’s been a reliable presence through the first 10 games of the season, with three assists and a plus-2 rating. Maybe the fastest player on the team, he’s been more aggressive offensively. His hometown Wild – the team that originally drafted him – will get another glimpse at the local boy that got away over the next three days, as the Hawks host the Wild on Saturday, then visit St. Paul for a return match on Monday. They’ll see the speed that has defined Leddy’s career, but also a more responsible defender in the wake of his playoff struggles. “I’m trying to jump in the play and create some more offense than maybe I did in the past,” Leddy said. “My speed definitely helps out, not only with the offense, but the gap coming back as well.” After signing a two-year contract over the summer, Leddy has bounced back this fall under unusual circumstances. While Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook have been playing together every night for years, and Niklas Hjalmarsson and Johnny Oduya have formed a dynamic duo since the start of last season, Leddy has had to deal with a revolving door of partners. Last year, Michal Rozsival and Sheldon Brookbank split time as his partner. This year, until his recent injury, Michael Kostka had been thrown into the mix, too. So the built-up chemistry that the top two pairings have is harder to come by for Leddy “If anything, it’s probably harder on them, sitting out and then playing,” Leddy said. “Communicating is huge, especially when you don’t have the same chemistry at first. Obviously, every player plays a little differently and has their own tendencies, but I try to play the same either way. I try to look for things and try to create things, whoever I’m with.” With two elite pairings ahead of him, it’s something Leddy will have to get used to. He’s moved on from the disappointment of having to watch the Final from the bench, and he’s not letting his mind wander to the Olympics, where he has an outside shot at a U.S. roster spot. “The focus is on the Hawks, and on this season right now,” Leddy said. “It’s about getting better and improving and doing my best to help the team win games.”

Rose closes dominant preseason modestly; Bulls 8-0 By JOE COWLEY Chicago Sun-Times CHICAGO – It wasn’t exactly an exclamation point for Derrick Rose, as the Bulls’ point guard finished his final preseason game with 15 points and eight assists in a 94-89 win against the Denver Nuggets on Friday night. More importantly than helping his team to an 8-0 record, however, what the point guard did accomplish with the regular season now set to start Tuesday in Miami, was quiet the critics. And there were many. It was open season on Rose,

as the 2011 MVP made the decision to sit out all of last year, not feeling mentally or physically ready to come back from the torn ACL in his left knee, despite getting clearance from team doctors. “I thought it was unfair,” first-year Nuggets coach Brian Shaw said of the criticism Rose received in his hometown. “Although the doctors cleared him, I’m sure there have been cases where someone has been cleared to do something and they go out and injure themselves. “He’s his best gauge. He had to deal with all the criticism and backlash. As long as

he can handle that, I think it’s fine. I think it was the right decision. I think he’s back at the level that he was when he was MVP.” As an assistant coach with the Pacers last year, Shaw admittedly actually had a talk with Rose that could have further persuaded Rose that he was doing the right thing by sitting. “I talked to him about Penny Hardaway, who was a teammate of mine in Orlando,” Shaw said. “When he blew his knee out, he came back too early. He never regained the form that he had prior to the injury.”

That doesn’t seem to be the path Rose is headed down. In the seven preseason games Rose played in he averaged 20.7 points a game, showed his old explosiveness around the rim, as well as an improved 3-pointer from the hundreds of shots he took every day in his rehab process. And while Rose could have been in an I-told-you-so-mode, following the Friday win he again expressed why he understood the criticism. “I look at it through their eyes where if I had a favorite player and I was a fan, I would want him on the court, too,” Rose said. “I could see where

they were coming from when they were saying the things that they were saying. They just wanted me on the court. I can’t feel bad about their opinion or judge them for their opinion.” Injury update: Kirk Hinrich [shoulder] and Joakim Noah [groin] both missed the final preseason games, as expected, but Thibodeau said there is still slight hope that he could have them back for opening night in Miami. “They were good [Friday], better,’’ Thibodeau said. “I want them to go through some practices first and then we’ll see where they are.’’

Illini face stingy Spartans defense By STEVE GREENBERG Chicago Sun-Times

Scott Walstrom – NIU Media Relations

Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch could be in line for another big game Saturday against Eastern Michigan, which is allowing more than 49 points a game this season.


NIU ignores BCS standings Huskies reminded of ’03 team that started 7-0, missed bowl By STEVE NITZ DeKALB – If things fall Northern Illinois’ way, the Huskies could end up in another Bowl Championship Series bowl game. Of course, NIU has to take care of its own business first. If the Huskies falter, it won’t matter what Fresno State, which is one spot ahead of No. 18 NIU in the current BCS standings, does the rest of the year. There won’t be any worry about finishing in the top 12 of the standings, or in the top 16 and ahead of the American Athletic Conference champion. The Huskies are 31-point favorites against Eastern Michigan on Saturday. NIU also should be a heavy favorite against UMass next week. It’s hard not to look ahead to the game against Ball State on Nov. 13. NIU coach Rod Carey isn’t looking forward. All he has to do is look back 10 years to see that midseason BCS rank-

ings don’t really matter. In 2003, NIU was ranked 10th when the first BCS standings were released after starting 7-0. The Huskies lost at Bowling Green that week with College Gameday in attendance, finished 10-2 and didn’t go to a bowl game. Carey has mentioned the 2003 Huskies to his current squad, talking about how the great start didn’t amount to a storybook ending. “I tend to look at that and the lesson learned from that. Not putting them down in any way, shape or form because that was a great team and we love those guys,” Carey said. “We had them here [for homecoming], but they’ll say that it doesn’t mean anything until you’re done. So you better do it the way you got here. The way we’ve gotten in this position so far is one little thing at a time.” Eastern Michigan comes into Saturday’s game at 1-6, with the Eagles’ only win coming against FCS Howard. EMU coach Ron English also is serving as the team’s defensive coordinator this season.

English was Michigan’s defensive coordinator from 2006 to 2007 and was Louisville’s defensive coordinator in 2008. The switch hasn’t helped, as the Eagles rank last in the Mid-American Conference in scoring defense (49.7 points a game) and total defense (514 yards a game). It could be a huge day for quarterback Jordan Lynch and the NIU offense. However, if the Eagles were to somehow pull off a huge upset, the Huskies know there won’t be any talk of the BCS on Sunday. “For me personally, [the BCS rankings aren’t] even my main focus,” NIU defensive end Perez Ford said. “I didn’t even know we were ranked this high until [Tuesday] morning. My girlfriend told me, and she didn’t even know. “I guess it’s a great opportunity, but all I am really focused on is Eastern Michigan, because, yeah, we can go to the BCS bowl game, but as soon as we lose to Eastern Michigan, everything is over.”


Irish brace for option offense By PAT GRAHAM The Associated Press AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. – The name of Air Force’s starting quarterback doesn’t scare Notre Dame nearly as much as the offensive scheme. The Falcons (1-6, 0-5 Mountain West) have yet to announce which backup QB will be under center when they try to end a six-game slide Saturday against the Fighting Irish (5-2). It could be Nate Romine, a fourth stringer when the season began who’s rapidly moved up the depth chart because of injuries and an academic ineligibility. Or it possibly may be Karson Roberts – the backup to the backup out of fall camp – as he returns from a concussion he suffered two weeks ago against San Diego State.

Notre Dame defensive lineman Stephon Tuitt pressures Temple quarterback Connor Reilly on Sept. 31 in South Bend, Ind. No matter, the Irish are simply preparing for the structure of Air Force’s hard-to-defend triple-option offense, not so much the starter.

“For us, [that’s] the most important element,” Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said. “The quarterback certainly is part of that scheme and so when we look at both

of the quarterbacks that have played in the last game, the last couple of games, it really, for us, is not as important as preparation for the scheme.” Notre Dame has some quarterback concerns of its own, with Tommy Rees leaving a 14-10 win over USC last Saturday in the third quarter with a strained neck. But Rees looked solid in practice this week and is expected to play. Note: I r i s h d e f e n s i v e lineman Stephon Tuitt just may be one of the best in the country, on the same level as South Carolina standout Jadeveon Clowney even. That’s Air Force coach Troy Calhoun’s opinion anyway after watching film of Tuitt, who had seven tackles and two sacks against USC last weekend. “He’s a tremendous player,” Calhoun said.


Wildcats’ bowl hopes could be on line By SETH GRUEN Chicago Sun-Times Pat Fitzgerald is like any other college football coach in that he doesn’t like to talk about the big picture. That works for those coaches competing for a national championship or even a conference title. Every week has equal bearing on accomplishing those goals. But for 4-3 Northwestern, its game Saturday at Iowa might have the biggest impact on its hopes for landing a bowl bid. The Wildcats need two wins to become bowl-eligi-

ble. That seems doable with five games left. But Northwestern won’t be favored in home games against Michigan and Michigan State and at Nebraska. So is Saturday a mustwin? Fitzgerald’s answer was predictable. “I don’t believe in mustwins,” Fitzgerald. “I think every game is the same. I think you’ve got to win every opportunity you can.” True, but the Wildcats haven’t done that, putting them in a must-win situation against the Hawkeyes. Northwestern could beat the Wolverines, Spartans

and Huskers. After all, this is the same team – at least from a personnel standpoint – that was considered among the favorites to win the Big Ten entering conference play. But poor execution on offense the last two weeks has jettisoned the Wildcats from the conference race and has raised questions about whether they can compete with the Big Ten’s best. The good news is Iowa is not among the conference’s best, making the game Saturday one of the most winnable left on the schedule. But the Hawkeyes have

one of the best defenses in the Big Ten, and it’s sure to put pressure on the Wildcats’ struggling offense. “I’m just going to say that every loss is a big one,” superback Dan Vitale said. “I think coach Mac [running-backs coach Matt MacPherson] this week said it perfectly. You’ve got to hate losing more than you like winning. So that’s kind of the mentality we’re having.”

What could Illinois’ homecoming game against Michigan State on Saturday be but another blowout loss for the Illini? Well, it could be a tightly contested loss. Maybe even – if the football gods are in the mood to drink champaign – a victory for beleaguered coach Tim Beckman’s team. But probably not. Five things I don’t want to know yet about this matchup but am afraid I already do: 1. Steve Hull will continue to be a major factor for Illinois’ offense. The senior slot receiver, who seems to be better at this job than he ever was as a defensive back, ranks eighth nationally with 21.6 yards a reception. With MSU cornerback Darqueze Dennard likely locking down Ryan Lankford, Hull and fellow slots Martize Barr and Miles Osei will have to beat inside coverage. Hull has displayed an uncanny ability to find open space well down the field. 2. The Illini can forget about running the ball. MSU’s Max Bullough, Denicos Allen and the rest of the Spartans’ run-stuffers are just too good. Josh Ferguson, one of the most versatile backs in the Big Ten, will be erased. Quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase

won’t have room to maneuver. Really, it’s all on Illini offensive coordinator Bill Cubit to game-plan unpredictably, and on Scheelhaase to deliver on the passing plays that might make a difference. It’s a lot to hope for. 3. The Spartans will punt more times than Wisconsin and Nebraska did combined. That number totals four. It isn’t much to shoot for, but MSU’s offense is just bad enough to make this dream a reality for a terrible Illini defense. 4. With starting cornerback V’Angelo Bentley sidelined by an injury, true freshmen Jaylen Dunlap and Darius Mosely will get more snaps than they’ve gotten in any game this season. That makes this a prove-it game for Beckman, who’s in charge of the corners in addition to whatever else it is that he does. Watch closely, Illini fans. Beckman should be judged by this. 5. This game, for a welcome change, will be winnable for the Illini. They’ll be close in the fourth quarter. Will they be able to pull it out? In a word: No. • Steve Greenberg is a sports reporter for the Chicago Sun-Times who can be reached at sgreenberg@

DuPage assistant says Cooper has NFL skills • COOPER Continued from page C1 “It’s interesting. The biggest thing to me is when these schools come in this is a whole different experience,” Cooper said. “In high school, I had Bowling Green and Ohio. Now, it’s schools like Texas A&M. The kind of things those schools have in terms of fan support and alumni and competition is something I kind of always wanted to be a part of.” Bowling Green coach Dave Clawson balked at giving Cooper (6-5, 305) his release last winter but told him after the spring semester he would release him. DuBose, who formerly coached at Harper College in Palatine, called former South running back Bolek Mikulec and they talked about Cooper. “I used to live in Cary, so I knew about Fahn,” DuBose said. “I thought he could get 50 scholarship offers if he came here. Because we had a kid, Matt Finnin, last year who ended up at Nebraska. At the same stage, Fahn is a better football player.” DuBose had heard stories from other players, who, like Cooper, did not care for Clawson’s constant hard line. “Coach Clawson is a very serious guy and very intense,” DuBose said. “Fahn was really down on his relationship with him there. They are a hard, direct staff, and the way Fahn’s made up, that didn’t work for him. I told him, ‘If you come here, make sure academics are the most important thing in your life. You’ll be shocked by the schools that will recruit you,’ because he’s an NFL kid.” Cooper spoke with his parents, Alfred and Caroline. He spoke with South coach Chuck Ahsmann. He spoke with former Bowling Green receiver James Brown, an Evanston product who had transferred to DuPage a year earlier. By playing at the junior college level, Cooper could play the season and not lose any eligibility. Chaparrals head coach Matt Foster, whose 5-2 team hosts Iowa Central at 1 p.m.

Saturday, hardly could believe his team’s god fortune. “We’re blessed to have [Cooper] here,” Foster said. “He’s a great leader, he does it by his actions. His pass-blocking is exceptional, which the way the game’s played today is a big thing [college coaches] are looking for. He has tremendous athletic ability and potential, because he’s only going to keep getting better.” Although Cooper did not love Bowling Green, he learned plenty and became a better athlete. Foster said Cooper was on the radar of numerous schools after the transfer. “He’s where he needs to be,” DuBose said. “I know the Bernstein kid is the one everybody went nuts about [in high school]. I would venture to say Fahn is stronger and more athletic than that kid right now. Coming out of high school, it wasn’t even close [Bernstein was ahead].” Bernstein is Vanderbilt’s starting left guard for the second season. Hespen, who also started on that South line for an 11-1 team, starts at D-I Drake. Cooper is eager to visit Texas A&M and Texas Tech. “Those are my top two schools,” Cooper said. “Texas Tech wants me bad and feels like I can make an impact right away. They’re undefeated in the Big 12 [Conference] and coach Kliff Kingsbury’s in his first year and a really cool guy. I would definitely love to play for him. “At the same time, Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin is awesome and a great coach who I have a lot of respect for. It would be hard to pass up playing for either one of them. Once I get a chance to check out Texas A&M, I feel like I’ll be ready to make my decision.” Cooper will be ready to provide an immediate impact wherever he lands, knowing that’s what big schools recruiting junior colleges expect. “I started games against Virginia Tech and Florida, and in the MAC we had some tough guys,” Cooper said. “My biggest upside is what I can bring to their team.”

Ralph Morey works Thursday in the auto shop at Restorations Unlimited II in Cary. The shop, which was founded by Morey in 1971, specializes in restoration of classic cars.

Restorations Unlimited keeps the past alive By JEFF ENGELHARDT CARY – When Ralph Morey first started his car restoration business, he said he would never work on a model made later than 1947. But Morey did not think his business would be booming 30 years later in Cary and winning national awards. As time went by, Morey had to give in and start working on later models built in the 1960s. It was a fortunate expansion, as a 1950 Allard J2 ranks among his favorite projects ever and brought national exposure to his shop as the vehicle was featured on Velocity Channel’s “One of a Kind.” “That was a nifty car, a very rare car,” Morey said. “It really was one of a kind and one of my favorites to work on.” Restorations Unlimited II – located at 304 Janus Road in Cary – started in Fox River Grove in 1971. After Morey realized he needed more space, he moved it to Cary in 1980, and the business has continued to grow ever since. Morey, who started as a mold maker for Monogram Models, said he always had a passion for cars and has owned a slew of classic vehicles from the 1930s and 1940s. That passion turned into the fivemechanic shop he now operates with his brother. Morey said the shop usually works on six cars at one time, with each project taking anywhere from 18 months to two years to complete. Most projects range from $100,000 to $125,000 and come from repeat customers and referrals, he said. In a niche business such as restoration, Morey said there is always a dedicated and loyal group of hobbyists and collectors. “Some people are true hobbyists and do a great job on their cars, and then bring it to us to finish what they

can’t do,” Morey said. “Others have more demanding projects and are looking for real quality work.” One such project is in progress now at Restorations Unlimited. Morey and his team are working on a prototype car that a customer designed and is building it from scratch. The project is almost complete after nearly five years of work and a $400,000 price tag. The ability to work on almost any aspect of a car is what Morey said sets his shop apart from others. The only services he outsources are engine machining and chrome plating.

Patients, firms shop for better health-care deals By TOM MURPHY The Associated Press


“We do absolutely everything we can in-house. We even have a sheet metal shop,” he said. “It’s hard to give out certain phases of work because you can’t depend on the quality or the job getting done on time.” Even at 66 years old and having worked on hundreds of cars, Morey said he has no plans of stopping, as each vehicle – even the same model – offers a new experience. He also enjoys the open house his shop holds every first Saturday of the month, as it gives him an opportunity to meet with other car enthusiasts and “trade notes, have some coffee and kick tires.” Winning competitions also has not lost its thrill. “We just finished working on one of our oddest cars, a 1950 Muntz Jet,” he said. “It just won best paint for the entire [Concours d’ Elegance of America] show in Plymouth, Mich. That’s still a great feeling to get a team win like that.”

Comcast is hosting an open house and job fair for military veterans from 1 to 4 p.m. Monday at its Oak Brook office, 2001 York Road. At the open house, Comcast will provide veterans information about career opportunities at the company and help link them to positions that are currently open. Comcast is a participant in the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes program, and, in 2011, committed to hiring 1,000 veterans by 2015. Comcast hired 1,000 veterans by 2013, achieving its goal two years early. Subsequently, Comcast committed to hiring another 1,000 by 2015. For information about the open house or the initiative, email emily_avila@cable., visit www. or call 215-498-9389.

Paul Freeman drove 600 miles last year to save himself – and his employer – thousands of dollars on his surgery. Freeman’s insurer covered his travel costs and the entire bill because a medical center in Oklahoma City could remove the loose cartilage in his knee for about 70 percent less than a hospital closer to Freeman’s Texhoma, Okla., home. At first, the community bank CEO hesitated because he thought the lower price would mean lower quality. But he knew if he didn’t make the roughly 10-hour round-trip trek, he’d pay about $5,000 out of pocket. “You immediately think, ‘Oh they’re going to take me into a butcher shop and it’s going to be real scary,’” Freeman, 53, said, noting that instead he had a “wonderful experience.” People shop for deals on everything from cars to clothes to computers. Why not for health care, too? Insurers, employers and individuals are shopping around for health care as they try to tame rising health-care costs. Companies are doing things such as paying for workers to travel if they agree to have a surgery performed in another city where the cost is cheaper. They’re also providing online tools to help people search for better deals

in their home market. And some patients are bargain-hunting on their own. Through a website called MediBid, people who pay out of pocket are soliciting doctors, hospitals and medical centers to bid to perform knee surgeries and other non-emergency procedures. Patients who shop for care represent a tiny slice of the roughly $2.7 trillion spent annually on health care in the U.S., said Devon Herrick, an economist who studies health care for the National Center for Policy Analysis. But he and other experts expect this trend to grow, especially as more companies offer insurance plans that require employees to pay thousands of dollars before most coverage starts. These so-called high-deductible plans also will be among the cheapest options available on the public exchanges set up as part of the health-care overhaul to enable millions of uninsured people to shop for coverage. Advocates say all the shopping will help control medical spending. “We waste an enormous amount of money in this country by overpaying for health care,” said John Goodman, an economist and CEO of the National Center for Policy Analysis. “The only way to get rid of waste is to have people compete in a real marketplace.”

Get involved in Harvard Chamber election

United Airlines fined $1.1M for tarmac delays CHICAGO – United Airlines will pay more than $1 million in fines for stranding passengers on 13 planes for more than three hours on the tarmac during a stormy day last year at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport, federal officials announced Friday. The $1.1 million fine is the largest levied against an airline since 2010, when new rules took effect that bar airlines from stranding passengers on the tarmac for longer than three hours without giving them the opportunity to leave the plane, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. The delays involved 13 United and United Express planes on July 13, 2012, a day when severe thunderstorms and lightning had caused several ramp closures and disrupted the movement of aircraft at O’Hare, the nation’s second largest airport. Toilets weren’t working on two of those planes. The airline exceeded the three-hour limit by as much as an hour and 17 minutes.

Settlement reached in 2007 Toyota case OKLAHOMA CITY – Toyota Motor Corp. on Friday reached a settlement with the victims of a deadly 2007 car crash, a day after an Oklahoma County jury became the first in the country to find the company liable in a case of sudden unintended acceleration. On Thursday, the jury awarded a total of $3 million in monetary damages to the injured driver of the 2005 Camry involved in the crash, and to the family of the passenger, who was killed. The ruling was significant because it was the first case where plaintiffs argued that a car’s electronics – in this case the software connected to the Camry’s electronic throttlecontrol system – caused the unintended acceleration.

Consumers take to Internet to find better health-care deals Continued from page E1 Searching for health care deals is a big change for many patients who’re used to paying whatever their insurer didn’t. Just figuring out an appropriate price for a procedure can be difficult for the average person. Surgeries and other major procedures have different prices based on a variety of factors, including whether it’s performed in a big city where care can cost more or in a hospital. And the portion that patients pay can vary widely. A lot depends on the type of insurance coverage and other factors such as the leverage a provider has in negotiating rates. For instance, a patient in Detroit with high-deductible health coverage provided by an employer could pay $920 or $2,791 out of pocket for a colonoscopy, according to research done by health care technology firm Castlight Health. Same patient. Same insurance coverage. Only difference: Where the procedure is performed. “You can be a highly educated consumer now and still not understand what bill is going to hit you,” says Dr. Giovanni Colella, CEO of Castlight, which designs an application that insurers or employers can give to patients to help them shop for health care based on price and quality. It’s also tough for patients to measure quality versus price. “You may find something (more expensive), but it doesn’t mean it’s better, safer, or more efficient,” said Arthur

The retailer also recently said it would start offering no-cost knee and hip replacement surgeries for employees who travel to one of four U.S. hospital systems. Wal-Mart is doing this through a national Employers Centers of Excellence Network that it joined with other big companies such as the home improvement chain Lowe’s. Premera Blue Cross Blue Shield, Alaska’s biggest health insurer, started a program in January that will pay expenses for some of its members to fly to Seattle for some procedures that come with huge price breaks. For instance, a knee surgery that costs $27,100 in Alaska can be performed for $13,000 in Seattle, according to the insurer. A Premera spokesman said only a couple of people have used the program so far, but the insurer expects use to pick up as it includes more members next year. Some patients are deal-hunting on their own. The website Medibid, which launched in 2010, connects patients who are paying out of pocket with doctors who bid to provide care. The website’s founders said they’ve helped about 1,800 people find care. Patients register with the site and pay either $25 per request or $4.95 a month for a year so they can post their medical needs on the site to solicit bids. Care providers, who register and pay fees of either $24.90 per month or about $250 annually, respond to patients with a bid. Tess St. Clair, MediBid’s chief operating officer, said the site helps people weigh their health care options: “The hardest thing for an American to do is

They say quality is a priority when they ask patients if they want a better deal. Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the largest private U.S. employer, provides health coverage for 1.1 million employees and their dependents. It runs a voluntary Centers of Excellence program that sends people to one of six hospital systems around the U.S. for certain heart, spine and transplant surgeries at no cost to the patient. Wal-Mart spokesman Randy Hargrove said the program can save a patient between $5,000 and $10,000 in out-of-pocket costs, depending on their coverage. He said so far, dozens of patients have used the program that includes care providers at nationallyrecognized places such as the Mayo Clinic.

Smith said his physician-owned center can offer better rates than some competitors because it doesn’t charge a high facility fee like many hospitals do. The center competes on price and cuts out insurers. Smith said this approach forces it to offer good care: The center cannot hide in an insurer’s network and continue to receive patients regardless of the job it does. “If we started cutting corners and worrying about our pocketbook before doing the right thing, we’re going to lose our business,” he said. Rick Matthews, a motivational speaker, saved money on his hernia surgery last year by putting it up for bid on MediBid and having the procedure at Surgery Center of Oklahoma. Matthews, 62, decided to use MediBid after he learned that the care would cost about $20,000 without insurance at a hospital close to his Milaca, Minn., home. Matthews pays for health care through a Christian cost-sharing ministry in which members chip in to help cover medical bills. He didn’t want to stick them with a big bill. A doctor on MediBid said the surgery would cost about $3,600, including removing a cyst on his knuckle. Counting costs for the roughly 1,400plus mile round-trip drive, Matthews figures the cost was about $4,500 – more than 70 percent off the original estimate.

By PHILLIP ALDER Newspaper Enterprise Association

Bob Uecker, who was given the nickname Mr. Baseball by Johnny Carson, said, “When I came up to bat with three men on and two outs in the ninth, I looked in the other team’s dugout and they were already in street clothes.” In today’s deal, South must ind a ninth trick in three no-trump. If he makes the wrong play, he will strike out. What should he do after West leads the diamond queen? North hoped to ind a 4-4 major-suit it, but when it didn’t happen, he jumped to three no-trump. South starts with eight top tricks: one spade, two diamonds and ive clubs. He has two 50-50 shots for his ninth trick: West might have the spade king, or East might hold the heart ace. Which should he try? The odds are equal, but declarer should play a heart to his king irst. Why? First, suppose the worst happens: West takes the king with his ace and returns a heart, the defenders taking four tricks in the suit. South still has the spade inesse on

the back burner. Second, an expert sitting West with, say, ace-third, might duck, thinking that declarer has K-Q-10 and wanting to give him a guess on the second round of the suit. If declarer tries the spade inesse irst, he should fail with this layout. East will win with his king and return a diamond. When South plays a heart from the board, East grabs the trick and leads another diamond, giving the defenders one spade, one heart and three diamonds.

TODAY - You won’t have much time to relax in the coming year. Get involved in anything that will help you excel. Reaching your goals should be your top priority. Gain confidence, pick up new skills and masterfully take on a new and exciting challenge. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- It’s a good day to broaden your interests and perfect your talents. Make a lifestyle choice that is unusual. A healthy conscience will lead you to a better place mentally, physically and emotionally. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You should do whatever it takes to improve your surroundings, make your place more user-friendly and less expensive. The steps you take today will have a big effect down the line. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Don’t be shy; stand up and be heard. Take on a challenge and prove that you have what it takes to be victorious. A partnership will open doors and help close deals. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- You’ll face a somewhat steep learning curve today. Don’t be afraid to challenge your abilities. Open your mind and hone skills that will contribute to your happiness. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Don’t waste time. Size up your situation and do whatever it takes to get what you want. Discuss your plans with people you feel have something to offer. An increase to your income will happen soon. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Observe what is going on around you today. Make adjustments quietly and strategically. You will have more options if you leave yourself room to maneuver. Keep your choices simple and affordable. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Refuse to let an emotional incident stand between you and your goal. Speak up, offer suggestions and make decisions that give you the freedom to choose what works best for you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Work with whatever you are given today. You may have to turn a negative into a positive. Look for an opening that allows you to reach your destination with the least amount of resistance and expense. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Head down the path that offers unusual and unfamiliar sights. You will learn much and make many new discoveries and friends if you take the road less traveled. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Face any disruption to your day with courage and action. A change will do you good and give you time to think. You should head in the direction that pleases you best. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- What you do for others will not go unnoticed. Strive to make a difference and you will be rewarded. Improving your community will raise your profile. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Look for a peaceful way to bypass opposition. Focus on your talent and displaying your expertise. Romance could be in the making.

Harvard finishes regular season 9-0 By JOE STEVENSON HARVARD – One of the most satisfying aspects for Harvard’s football team is that neither the seniors nor juniors won a game at the freshman level. Through diligence and determination and sweat, the Hornets got better. A lot better. Harvard rode a career-best rushing performance from running back Christian Kramer, along with a solid defensive effort, to cap its unbeaten regular season with a 21-0 victory over Richmond-Bur-

has an undefeated regular season for the first time since 1988 and an outright BNC East title for the first time since 2007. R-B (5-4, 3-3) will find out Saturday night if its 36 playoff points are enough to qualify for the playoffs. The Rockets made it tough on Harvard in the first half behind 213-pound fullback Vince Battaglia, who had 18 carries and 109 yards. R-B held the ball for 19:56, while the Hornets had it 4:04 of the first half, but thanks to Kramer’s 56-yard touchdown run on their first play, they led 7-0.

Lee’s 5 TDs lift ’Canes in a rout By TOM MUSICK

Sarah Nader–

Crystal Lake South’s quarterback Austin Rogers celebrates with his teammates after scoring a touchdown during the second quarter of Friday’s game against Huntley in Crystal Lake. Crystal Lake South defeated Huntley, 27-7.


Gators finish on high note Crystal Lake South ruins Red Raiders’ playoff chances By JEFF ARNOLD CRYSTAL LAKE – For the first time in their varsity careers, Crystal Lake South’s seniors entered the final week of the regular season without a next week to look forward to. They made sure their curtain call was a night to remember. Quarterback Austin Rogers had a hand in all four of South’s touchdowns – running for two, passing for another and hauling in a touchdown catch – as the Gators overpowered Huntley, 27-7, on Friday night. With South out of playoff contention, the Gators (4-5, 2-4 FVC Valley) grabbed hold of the momentum from the start, keeping the Red Raiders from ever getting into rhythm and slamming the

door on Huntley’s own playoff chances. “It would have been easy to hang it in in our situation, but they played their hearts out,” South coach Chuck Ahsmann said. “We talked about how we had to match their intensity early because their season was on the line and we knew that.” Behind Rogers, the Gators jumped out to a 20-0 lead. Rogers connected with Eric Landis on a 21-yard touchdown pass before reaching the end zone on runs of 21 and 24 yards. By the end of the first half, Rogers single-handedly ran for more yards (94) than Huntley (4-5, 2-4 Valley) amassed as a team. For the Red Raiders, who needed a win to be considered for a postseason berth, the inability to get anything rolling offensively for a second straight week again

played a big role in the final result. “Physically, I think they handled us up front,” Huntley coach John Hart said. “But to not play well for a whole half is inexcusable. This will take a while (to sink in) because the seniors deserved better. But when you get yourself in a bad position, bad things can happen.” Rogers extended the lead to 27-0 late in the third quarter, scoring on the receiving end of Payton Minogue’s 21yard touchdown pass.

That started a strange turn of events as the game was twice delayed when blown circuit breakers caused two banks of stadium lights to go out. Huntley finally ended its scoring drought on Mitch Kawell’s 45-yard touchdown run with one bank of lights still out, keeping the Gators from recording the shutout win. Despite that, South’s seniors were able to celebrate a win in their final game – something Rogers says will soften the blow of the Gators seeing their string of playoff appearances come to an end. “We wanted to get to the playoffs, but we ended up getting the win and that was the goal,” Rogers said. “We left on a good note. I played one of my best games of the season so it was a good way to win for me – and for our team.”


Tigers’ defense steps up, shuts out Johnsburg By BILL PEMSTEIN Crystal Lake Central did what it needed to on Friday to pull off a shutout of Johnsburg, stopping 6-foot-1, 220back John Conroy and 6-8, 305-pound Zach Kinney. It was Johnsburg’s last home game, and the Skyhawks (1-8) threw most everything at the conference champs, but it wasn’t enough as the Tigers prevailed, 28-0. “Our defense played very well,’’ Tigers receiver Jake Ortner said. “Our offense struggled and we had too many turnovers.” The Skyhawks (1-8) forced

three fumbles and two interceptions. Ortner also took time to salute the home team. “Johnsburg is a good team,’’ he said. “They are better than their record. They are really improved.” Ortner caught his team’s first pass of the night from quarterback Kyle Lavand. However, the Tigers (8-1) used the running tandem of Ryan Williams and Connor Hines to complete a 55-yard drive. The extra point on this first march was blocked, and the favored Tigers led by six points at the end of the first quarter. The Tigers took to the air on their second possession

of the second quarter. The Tigers used all of 25 seconds to move the ball 87 yards. A big chunk of it came when Lavand hit Ortner for a 66-yard gain. The next pass went from Lavand to Luke Novy and that 21-yard strike turned into eight points when Lavand and Jason MacAlpine made good on the two-point conversion pass. “When we are playing our game, we can play with anybody,’’ Ortner said. “But we can’t have five turnovers. We have a lot of variety on offense, Kyle can really mix up a lot of throws.” Ortner also caught a 65-

yard touchdown pass from Lavand. Johnsburg, with a fullback out, turned to the offensive lineman Kinney and guard Conroy on offense. Sharing time in the Johnsburg backfield was Bailey Stefka. “It’s all due to the seniors,’’ Stefka said. “They set the foundation. They worked their tails off.” Coach Mike Maloney won’t soon forget his senior class. “We got our win,’’ Maloney said. “We just had a tremendous senior class. We have 11 outstanding men who will be leaders one day. Our guys battled the whole night.”

Rockets blanked for first time since 2011 opener against Oregon R-B Harvard

• HORNETS Continued from page 1 EXTRA “The line blocked out the defensive end and I bounced it outside,” said Kramer, who raced around right end. “All I saw was open space. It felt amazing to get off to a good start, and we took it from there.” Harvard’s defense stopped Rockets drives at the Hornets’ 39, 20 and 12 in the first half. “We gave up some yards; [Battaglia] is a big, physical kid,” said Hornets coach Tim Haak, who will retire after this school year. “But we stopped them when we had to. We felt we were going to score again and they’d have to play from behind.” Kramer ran 55 yards on Harvard’s first drive of the third quarter and added a 4-yard run in the fourth quarter. The defense held R-B to 71

Richmond-Burton junior Luke Brinkman outruns Harvard junior Fernando Carrera during the first quarter Friday in Harvard. total yards in the second half and shut out the Rockets for the first time since their 2011 season opener against Oregon. “We worked together, that’s pretty much all you can do,” defensive end Zach Martin said. “The coaches helped

us a lot and (middle linebacker) Tate (Miller) played a big part.” Kramer finished with 23 carries for 244 yards, while Battaglia had 130 yards on 24 attempts. “I should have kicked a field goal late in the half,”

Rockets coach Pat Elder said. “Our plan was that Vince was the guy. We were moving the ball and had good field position, we just needed to finish more drives. Our kids played awful hard.” Harvard, which is ranked No. 8 in The Associated Press Class 4A poll, likely will get the No. 2 seed in the northern half of the Class 4A bracket when the IHSA announces playoff pairings Saturday night. “I’ve just been so focused on us getting better every week,” Haak said. “It’s been a good journey for the kids. They’re just a joy to be around.”

WHEATON – Ephraim Lee’s first touchdown – a 63-yard run on Marian Central’s second play of the game – was nice. Then came Lee’s second touchdown. Then, his third. Then, his fourth. By the time Lee punched in his fifth touchdown of the first half on a 48-yard run Friday against Wheaton Academy, there was no doubt as to the outcome of the game or its No. 1 star. Lee’s terrific performance lifted Marian to a 63-20 win in its regular season finale against Wheaton Academy in a Suburban Christian Conference crossover match. The Hurricanes (7-2, 5-2 Blue) now wait to learn their playoff seeding, while the Warriors (4-5, 3-4 Gold) fell short in their bid to reach the postseason. If the Hurricanes feel well rested heading into the playoffs, they have Lee to thank. He carried the ball into the end zone for three rushing touchdowns (63 yards, 13 yards and 48 yards), turned a screen pass from Billy Bahl into a 19yard touchdown reception, and returned a kickoff 84 yards to cap off his near-perfect day. Bahl added a 10-yard touchdown on a quarterback keeper and a 9-yard touchdown pass to Tom Klinger before the half,

while reserve running back Jarryd Cabusao rushed for a pair of touchdowns in the second half to prompt a running clock. “I don’t think I’ve ever had a game like this,” said Lee, who finished with 11 carries for 171 yards, all of which came before halftime. “The line did amazing, opening up the holes. On the kickoff return, the guys got the hole open and I shot right through. I definitely give props to my teammates. They played hard all game.” Marian coach Ed Brucker said Lee bailed out his teammates, many of whom struggled to start the game. Bahl completed only one of his first nine passes before settling into a groove and eventually finishing 8 of 18 for 150 yards and two scores. Despite the lopsided outcome, Brucker said, his team still needed to improve on both sides of the ball. But he said the Hurricanes were pointed in the right direction heading into the playoffs.


Trojans clinch playoff berth By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO CARY – As Cary-Grove prepared for its regular season finale against Hampshire, the Trojans realized they could exploit the Whip-Purs defense through the air. When C-G coach Brad Seaburg told quarterback Jason Gregoire before Friday’s game that they would be calling a pass play on the Trojans’ first play of the game, the junior knew something good would happen. Gregoire was right. After the Trojans’ defense forced a turnover on downs, Gregoire connected with Zach McQuade for a 50-yard touchdown on the pregame scripted passing play. The momentum from the big play carried the rest of the way as C-G beat Hampshire, 33-13, to clinch a playoff berth. “Just with how [Hampshire’s] free safety played and how it all set up, I knew it’d be successful,” Gregoire said of the touchdown. Gregoire, who completed 7 of 13 passes for 97 yards, was also dangerous running the Trojans’ option offense. He amassed 92 yards on 12 carries with one touchdown. Freshman fullback Tyler Pennington added 90 yards on 16 carries with two touchdowns. C-G (6-3) dominated the line of scrimmage most of the game. Defensively, the Trojans limited the Whip-Purs (6-3) to six rushing yards in the first half, helping them take a 20-0 lead.

“We knew they had a physical team, had some big guys up front,” junior lineman Trevor Ruhland said. “I feel like our offensive line did a good job and is going to carry that on.” The Trojans extended their lead to 27-0 on their first possession of the third quarter, punctuated by Pennington’s second touchdown of the game. Hampshire finally broke through against C-G’s defense on a 1-yard touchdown run by senior running back Nick Kielbasa with 23 seconds remaining in the third quarter. Junior fullback Zach Forney scored C-G’s final touchdown on a 4-yard run in the fourth, while Hampshire tacked on a late score on Nick Mohlman’s 15-yard pass to Tim Jansen. Despite the loss, Hampshire will be making its first playoff appearance since 2008. “I thought that was a great warm up for the playoffs,” Hampshire coach Dan Cavanaugh said. “We’re not going to find anyone that we’re going to play that’s going to be better than that.”

Prairie Ridge romps into postseason with 3rd straight win Prairie Ridge McHenry

By KEVIN MEYER McHENRY – Three weeks ago, the Prairie Ridge football team was staring at a 2-4 record and needing to win its final three games in order to reach the playoffs. With their dominating 56-20 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division win over McHenry on Friday night, the Wolves made that once daunting task look easy. For the third straight game it was the Prairie Ridge offensive that showed up in a big way, particularly with the running game. The Wolves (5-4 overall, 3-3 FVC Valley) had three rushers go for over 100 yards in the game and accumulated 423 rushing yards as a team. Prairie Ridge is playoff eligible but will have to wait until Saturday to see if it has enough points (opponents’ wins) to make the playoffs. “I think it was a matter of our guys just sticking together and working hard,” Prairie Ridge coach Chris Schremp said. “Back then, we said this is the playoffs now; if we don’t

win you go home for the season. The guys got some confidence in themselves, the offense started clicking, and we went on a nice roll.” Prairie Ridge went three-and-out on its first possession but scored on its next five to take a 35-7 halftime lead. McHenry’s lone score of the half made it 21-7 at the time, which was also the closest it got the rest of the game. The Wolves were led on the ground by Zach Greenberg, who rushed for 156 yards on 20 carries, including two touchdowns in the first

half. Wolves quarterback Brett Covalt was coming off a game where he rushed for 258 yards. He didn’t match that huge number this week, but did run the ball 20 times for 113 and four touchdowns. “The linemen have been great and the rushers have been doing all we can to make an impact these last three games,” Covalt said. Brent Anderson, the third Prairie Ridge rusher over 100 yards, ran for 117 yards and two touchdowns on 13 attempts. “I’m extremely proud of the team, we had a lot of ups and downs but we stuck together when we could have packed it in and got the job done,” Schremp said. For the Warriors (2-7, 0-6), the game was just another misstep in what has been a disappointing season. The Warriors started 2-1 but lost their last six games to close out the season. McHenry was led by quarterback Don Lansu for Shaw Media Mike Briscoe, who went 9 for 18 passing for 117 yards and two touch- McHenry fullback Thomas Hellios coughs up the football against Prairie Ridge on Friday downs. at McHenry’s McCracken Field. Prairie Ridge recovered the ball.

Key stat: Woodstock North had no answer for the Grayslake North rushing attack, led by Titus Booker. The junior had a monster game and was unstoppable from the start. He ran for over 100 yards (104) on his fourth carry of the game with the help of two huge runs of 34 and 49 yards. Booker finished with 288 yards on the ground on 31 carries to go along with five touchdown.. Booker was also a threat in the passing game as Gentile hit him three times for 57 yards. Gentile completed seven of his 17 pass attempts for 127 yards. The quarterback was effective on the ground as well, mixing in well-timed designed runs for 113 yards on eight carries. The Knights’ offense generated 401 total rushing yards and 525 yards of total offense. Quote: “[Grayslake North] is a good football team and I’m really proud of the way my guys fought back,” Thunder coach Jeff Schroeder said. “There are definitely things to fix for next year, especially the defense,” he continued. “But they could have laid down tonight and I’m just ecstatic that they continued to fight.” – Patrick Mason,

Loss can’t take away from first night game By ANDREW HANSEN HEBRON – After the clock ticked down and Alden-Hebron coach John Lalor addressed his players, senior Avi Mor hung around to take it all in. The lights. The cold Autumn wind. Playing at home on a Friday night. The community coming together to support their team. The 47-7 Northeastern Athletic Conference loss to Ottawa Marquette hardly mattered after the Giants (6-3 overall, 6-3 NAC) played the school’s first Friday night home football game. “We made history,” Mor said. “It could be my last home game. We got the whole community involved. It was awesome. It was such a difference, such a change in terms of what we’re used to.” After having to play the rest of its home games on Saturday afternoons, the Giants were excited for the Friday night atmosphere. Kristin Snell, a teacher at A-H and ticket taker at the game, estimated that the attendance was triple that of a regular home game. Thirty-four former players signed a sign-in sheet at the gates, with players coming from as recent as last year’s graduates James Horton and Logan Yerk to 1962 graduate Gordon Johnson. “It was a great atmosphere, a playoff atmosphere,” Lalor said. “I think the fans enjoyed it. The kids played hard. I’m proud of the way they played.” Mor and Nick Beck both hoped that they started an Alden-Hebron tradition. “It was cool to make history,” Beck said. “This was our first time under the lights, and I hope they keep it going.” The Crusader’s size and speed proved to be too much for the Giants to handle, racking up 423 total yards. Hebron finally found the end zone with Beck scoring on a 6-yard run in the fourth quarter that capped off a 10-play, 70-yard drive. Beck finished with 126 yards on 20 carries. Lalor said playing the top team in conference before playoffs start can only help the team. “The game plan was right, we just didn’t execute,” Lalor said. “We’re very young. Their size and talent wore us down.” Marquette A-H

Making history Jacobs captures outright FVC Valley title By MAUREEN LYNCH ALGONQUIN – The prerogative was simple. The task, at least on paper, was not. Creating a culture of winning in a program that hasn’t known serious success in more than 30 years is a daunting proposal. But when storied football coach Bill Mitz took the reins at Jacobs, getting the Golden Eagles to believe they could win was precisely what Mitz promised. On Friday, as the final seconds of the Eagles’ game against Dundee-Crown drained off the clock, it was clear Mitz kept his word. “We made history,” the Eagles screamed at one another. “History, baby.” Indeed. Jacobs beat D-C, 34-7, to win the Fox Valley Conference Valley Division championship outright for the first time in program history. After shaking hands with their District 300 rivals, the Eagles sprinted toward the fans who rushed the sidelines to celebrate a moment many questioned would ever come.

“I’m never going to forget this,” quarterback Bret Mooney said. “This was a great game. It will be stuck in my memory forever. Jacobs has turned around.” The Eagles (7-2 overall, 6-0 FVC Valley) struck on their first drive of the game on a 7-yard touchdown from Josh Walker, who had a career-defining 251-yard performance. Forcing the Chargers to go three-and-out on their first possession, the Eagles used 11 plays to make it 13-0 on Mooney’s 1-yarder with 21.7 seconds left in the first quarter. D-C (6-3, 3-2), celebrating its first playoff bid since 1994, pulled within 13-7 on a 31-yard touchdown from Caleb Parson (18 carries, 73 yards) with just less than 2 minutes left in the first half. But Walker

responded immediately with a 46-yard score on the Eagles’ ensuing possession for a 20-7 halftime advantage. “We got it to 13-7 and missed three tackles, and [Walker] ran for a touchdown,” D-C coach Vito Andriola said. “I thought that was the turning point. … We’re not there yet. They’re better than us.” Walker punctuated his performance with an 89-yard touchdown run on Jacobs’ first drive of the second half. Jacobs running back Adam Anyu put the finishing touches on the game with a 25yard touchdown with 8:23 left in the fourth. Mitz came out of the locker room nearly breathless, his excitement palpable. “When [the coaching staff] came in here, people kind of laughed at us about first saying we were going to the playoffs and then saying we were going to win a (conference) championship,” Mitz said. “Then they really laughed. But now we’ve done it, and now we’ll go into the playoffs – the real season, as we’ve always called it.”

Game summary: One week after its first victory of the season, Marengo couldn’t stop Genoa-Kingston’s rushing attack in a 48-3 loss to the Cogs at home. Genoa-Kingston scored on all four of its possessions in the first half and forced a running clock late in the fourth quarter. Marengo’s only score came off a field goal from junior kicker Weston Shephard, whose kick was true from 32 yards out early in the second quarter. Key stat: The Indians managed only five first downs. A couple of key sacks by Genoa-Kingston on third down stalled two Marengo drives in the first half and the Indians were never able to get much offense generated in the passing game, recording only three completions for 18 yards. Top player: Marengo junior running back Dakota Kissack had the most explosive play of the day for Marengo, returning a kickoff 53 yards into Genoa-Kingston territory to set up the Indians’ only score of the contest. Kissack also had 18 rushing yards for the Indians. Quote: “At the end of the season we had one win against Rockford Christian and we all came together in that game,” Marengo senior running back Jacob Pratt said. “Against Genoa, we thought we’d be able to knock them out of the playoffs. It’s tough, but we got through it and it was a good season overall.” – Ross Jacobson,

Woodstock 30, Grayslake Central 20 Game summary: The Woodstock Blue Streaks concluded their season on a positive note by defeating Fox Valley Conference Fox Division opponent Grayslake Central on Friday at Woodstock’s Larry Dale Field. The Blue Streaks (2-7 overall, 2-4 FVC Fox) never trailed and struck first, capitalizing after an interception. Quarterback Jace Polhman connected with Mitch Kohley, who made a spectacular catch in the left corner of the end zone with 3:52 remaining in the first quarter to give Woodstock an early 7-0 lead. The Blue Streaks’ defense held fast, forcing four turnovers. The ground attack of Alex Shannon and Mike Santucci combined for 197 yards rushing and two TDs. Key stat: Tied 7-7 just before the end of the half, the Blue Streaks deflated the Rams (4-5, 2-4) by scoring with less than one second remaining as Jordan Sumner made a leaping catch in the end zone on a 33-yard pass from Pohlman. Top player: Junior running back Alex Shannon finished with a game-high 108 yards rushing and also scored Woodstock’s final TD on a 4-yard run with 8:35 remaining in the fourth. Shannon did an admirable job filling in for MikeSantucci, who left the game after suffering an apparent ankle injury with 1:12 remaining in the third quarter. Before leaving, Santucci had 89 yards rushing on nine carries and also contributed to the Woodstock scoring with a 63-yard TD run 17 seconds into the third quarter. Quote: “I thought that score before the half gave us some real confidence,” said Woodstock coach Steve Beard. “It was a great team victory, and our seniors got to walk off the field as winners.” – Steve Repsys,
