Police from the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office don protective masks and footwear Thursday before entering a house on the 500 block of North Country Club Drive near McHenry as they collect evidence. The owner of the home, where the skeletal remains of a woman were found earlier this week, has been charged with concealing her death, according to the sheriff’s office.

Man in custody accused of concealing homicide WOODSTOCK – The owner of a home near McHenry where the skeletal remains of a woman were found earlier this week has been charged with concealing her death, according to the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office. William J. Ross, 62, of 518 N. Country Club Drive, remains at the Clark County Correctional Facility in Las Vegas, Nev., on a felony charge of concealment of a homicidal death. Deputies were called to the residence near McHenry in an unincorporated area of the county around 2 p.m. Wednesday after the caretaker of the home found skeletal remains inside a bedroom of the home, Undersheriff Andrew Zinke said. The woman, who has not yet been identified, appeared to have been dead for some time. A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Court said Ross put the body in a plastic bag and sealed the room where her remains were found. Investigators learned that no one

lice in Las Vegas took Ross into custody Thursday. The McHenry County Coroner’s Office said an autopsy was performed Thursday, but they released no information about the case on Friday. “Our focus is on identifying the victim and notifying the family,” Zinke said. “This is an ongoing homicide investigation with a lot of unanswered questions. We are hopeful to bring closure to someone’s family relatively soon.” Bob Jones, a neighbor of Ross’ in McHenry, said he believed a woman had been living in Ross’ residence for a couple of years. More than a year ago, Jones no longer saw her around the neighborhood. “She was living there, and then everybody thought she had moved out because you only saw [Ross]; you didn’t see her anymore,” Jones said. Soon after, Ross moved out of the residence as well, Jones said. Bond for Ross has been set at $100,000.

HUNTLEY – Centegra Health System cleared another hurdle in its efforts to build a new hospital in Huntley. Will County Judge Bobbi Petrungaro backed the Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board’s approval of the $233 million project in a decision issued Friday. The Oct. 23 groundbreaking on the 128-bed acute care hospital was delayed because of a yearlong lawsuit filed by competitors Mercy Health System, Advocate Health Care and Sherman Health after the state board reversed two previous rejections of Centegra’s application. “During this three-year process, we remained confident that this hospital project was in the best interest of the residents who call our community home,” Centeg-

ra’s chief executive officer, Mike Eesley, said in a news release. The complaints filed by the three competitors contended that the ruling should be reversed because Department of Public Health staff said the proposal did not meet three of the state’s 20 standards, including there being a need in McHenry County for the proposed project and that it does not unnecessarily duplicate health care and clinical services in the area. The state board disagreed with the staff assessment, determining that, with growth for the area estimated at 13 percent, the project would meet future need. Despite the lawsuit, Centegra has been moving ahead with the design and permitting processes. Detailed designs presented to the Huntley Plan Commission show a five-story

Jury deadlocks on arson charges By JIM DALLKE WOODSTOCK – After deliberating more than nine hours, a jury found Joseph Ziegler guilty of burglarizing a Pistakee Highlands home but could not reach a verdict on the fire that left the home uninhabitable. The prosecution argued the fire was the end result of an Aug. 8, 2012, argument between Ziegler and Nick Pennington, who lived at 5107 Westwood Drive in Pistakee Highlands. The burglary conviction carries a potential prison term of up to seven years, while the arson charges carry a minimum prison sentence of six to 30 years. Ziegler could be retried on the arson charges. Prosecutors said Ziegler believed Pennington stole

But they said Ziegler missed his target and instead torched Roseanne Aitken’s home at 5113 Westwood Drive. Defense attorney Edward Edens argued that there wasn’t fingerprint evidence, traces of accelerant on Ziegler’s clothes or an eyewitness to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Ziegler was guilty.

Equality bill marries joy, sorrow in single day It’s often called the happiest day of your life, a day you’ll never forget: your wedding day. But, as a gay man living in Illinois, it was a day I would never experience. Actually, it was a day I wasn’t “allowed” to experience. Until this week, same-sex couples could not legally marry in this state. On Tuesday, that all changed. Following an emotional 61-54 vote in the Illinois House, marriage equality for gay and lesbian couples soon will become a law of the land in the Land of Lincoln. I watched in awe as the historic vote made Illinois the largest of the 15 states to allow gay marriage, a sign of Americans’ increasing acceptance of homosexuality. Or at least of our rights. The measure now heads to Gov. Pat Quinn, who has said he will sign it into law. “Today, the Illinois House put our state on the right side of history,” said Quinn, who campaigned for the measure, which is scheduled to take effect in June. But, for me, this victory was bittersweet.


VIEWS Scott Helmchen While I was thrilled my partner and I will be getting hitched, something was missing. My dad, who died in 2003. Each milestone I reach and accomplishment I make in my life triggers a memory of him. Tuesday was no different. “I wish he would’ve lived long enough to see this day” kept running through my mind. I then realized the best I can do to honor my dad’s memory is to be a man he would be proud of. I do that by treating others as I want to be treated, as my equal. This new marriage equality law does just that for the gay and lesbian community. “At the end of the day, what this bill is about is love, it’s about family, it’s about commitment,” bill sponsor state Rep. Greg Harris said. Opponents of the new law (including some of the most powerful

religious leaders in Illinois) believe marriage should remain between a man and a woman. I don’t get it. How does allowing me the right to marry the man I love affect your own marriage? State Rep. Jack Franks, D-Marengo, the only McHenry County legislator to support the bill, agrees. In announcing his “yes” vote this week, Franks said he “can’t think of a single way” approving gay marriage would hurt his own marriage to his longtime wife. “This is not the time to be timid,” Franks said. “Those waiting have waited long enough.” Right on, Jack. Even Pope Francis created some waves in July when he said the Roman Catholic Church had become too focused on its opposition to homosexuality. “If a person is gay and seeks God and has goodwill, who am I to judge him?” he said. Other opponents have said this push for marriage equality is about destroying religious freedoms. It’s not. It’s about giving two consenting

adults, regardless of orientation, the right to wed. House Speaker Michael Madigan says he thinks the country “is at the point where not only is this accepted, it’s expected.” Marriage is a core, inalienable right for everyone, bestowed by the Declaration of Independence itself. Gay people shouldn’t be “allowed” to be married; we have the right to be married. You can have as many debates about gay marriage as you want, and I certainly have had my share. But, to me, marriage should be marriage: a recognition and celebration of the love between two people. So, today, with our community’s emblematic rainbow flag flying a little bit higher, my partner and I celebrate this historic vote for our state and our family. After all, love is love, no matter who the people are. I know my dad would agree.

CBS admits error in Benghazi ‘60 Minutes’ story


NEW YORK – CBS News admitted Friday it was wrong to trust a “60 Minutes” source who claimed to be at the scene of a 2012 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, and the publisher of the source’s book on the incident has halted its publication. “There are so many people out there who have the potential to deceive a news organization,” said Jeffrey Fager, CBS News chairman and “60 Minutes” executive producer, in an interview with The As-

Quinn picks Paul Vallas as running mate The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – Working to reinforce his image as a reformer and champion of the middle class, Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn said Friday he has selected former Chicago schools CEO and 2002 gubernatorial candidate Paul Vallas as his running mate for 2014. Quinn said he’s known Vallas for 30 years and that Vallas has “never been shy about fighting for education, reform and opportunities for working people.” “We have made great progress these last few years, but

serious challenges remain and our mission is not yet accomplished,” the Chicago Democrat said in an emailed announcement from his campaign. “Paul is an independent problem solver with a proven record of reform. He will be a strong Lt. Governor for the common good.” Vallas is registered to vote in the Chicago suburb of Palos Heights, and the Quinn campaign says he’s maintained residency there since 2007. But he is currently the school superintendent in Bridgeport, Conn., where he’s been fighting to keep his job.

The 60-year-old Illinois native ran Chicago Public Schools from 1995 until 2001 before narrowly losing the 2002 Democratic nomination for governor to now-imprisoned former Gov. Rod Blagojevich. Vallas then served as superintendent of schools in Philadelphia and in New Orleans. He’s also helped rebuild schools in earthquake-ravaged Haiti and Chile. In the campaign’s statement, Vallas said he is honored to join forces with “the strongest reform governor in the country.” “This governor has been

getting big things done since he got here. Unlike his predecessors, Governor Quinn tackled the hard issues and has made the right decisions to get Illinois back on track,” Vallas said. “Together we will fight every day for working families and deliver the reform and change that Illinois deserves.” Quinn served as Blagojevich’s lieutenant governor until Blagojevich’s ouster from office elevated Quinn to the state’s top job. He won his first full term in 2010, defeating Republican state Sen. Bill Brady in a tight contest.

Quinn will face the winner of the March GOP primary. Four candidates are vying for the nomination: Brady, state Sen. Kirk Dillard, businessman Bruce Rauner and state Treasurer Dan Rutherford. They have criticized Quinn for the state’s ongoing financial troubles – which include a $100 billion unfunded pension liability and billions in unpaid bills – as well as for Illinois’ unemployment rate, the second-highest of any state in the country. Quinn’s announcement Friday trumpeted his own work on a pension reform deal

for newly hired public employees, ethics reforms and a capital construction program his administration says has created thousands of jobs. It also credited Vallas with tackling major budget deficits, raising test scores in Chicago and Philadelphia and helping rebuild schools in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, among other achievements. But Vallas’ career hasn’t been without controversy. The Connecticut Supreme Court is currently considering his appeal of a lower court’s ruling that Vallas doesn’t have the proper credentials for his job.

Report finds friend of Jesse White double-billed Illinois By JOHN O’CONNOR The Associated Press

This combination made from file photos shows Willis Tower (left), formerly known as the Sears Tower, in Chicago on March 12, 2008, and 1 World Trade Center in New York on Sept. 5. Soaring above the city at 1,776 feet, the 104-story 1 World Trade Center is in contention with Willis Tower for title of America’s tallest building.

Height of 1 World Trade Center debated in Chicago By JASON KEYSER The Associated Press CHICAGO – Rising from the ashes of 9/11, the new World Trade Center tower has punched above the New York skyline to reach its powerfully symbolic height of 1,776 feet and become the tallest building in the country. Or has it? A committee of architects recognized as the arbiters on world building heights is meeting Friday to decide whether a design change affecting the skyscraper’s 408foot needle disqualifies it from being counted. Disqualification would deny the tower the title as the nation’s tallest. But there’s more than bragging rights at stake; 1 World Trade Center stands as a monument to those killed in the terrorist attacks, and the ruling could dim the echo of America’s founding year in the structure’s height. Without the needle, the building measures 1,368 feet, a number that also holds symbolic weight as the height of the original World

Trade Center. What’s more, the decision is being made by an organization based in Chicago, whose cultural and architectural history is embodied by the Willis – formerly Sears – Tower that would be knocked into second place by a vote in favor of the New York structure. “Most of the time these decisions are not so controversial,” said Daniel Safarik, an architect and spokesman for the nonprofit Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat. The 30 members of its Height Committee are meeting to render a judgment behind closed doors in Chicago, where the world’s first skyscraper appeared in 1884. The committee, comprising industry professionals from all over the world, will announce its decision next week. The question over 1 World Trade Center, which remains under construction and is expected to open next year, arose because of a change to the design of its tower-topping needle. Under the council’s cur-

rent criteria, spires that are an integral part of a building’s aesthetic design count; broadcast antennas that can be added and removed do not. The designers of 1 World Trade Center had intended to enclose the mast’s communications gear in decorative cladding made of fiberglass and steel. But the developer removed that exterior shell from the design, saying it would be impossible to properly maintain or repair. Without it, the question is whether the mast is now primarily just a broadcast antenna. According to the architecture firm behind the building, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP, the needle will have a communications platform for radio and television equipment, but it will also be topped with an LED beacon that will fire out a horizontal blaze of light visible from up to 50 miles away on a clear night – a feature that has been described as a crowning beacon of hope.

SPRINGFIELD – A friend of Secretary of State Jesse White’s claimed during her time as his chief deputy director of securities that she also worked five hours each workday as a home health care provider, an internal investigation found. Marlene Liss, 36, also falsely claimed to have bachelor’s and master’s degrees, reported a fake address and has used at least nine different names in public records, the report by the secretary of state’s inspector general found. She was paid $80,000 per year under White, who knew her professionally from a print shop she operated and who was a friend of hers, spokesman Dave Druker said. Federal prosecutors are investigating the matter, according to the report and a spokeswoman for the Illinois Department of Human Services. Liss has received payments as a personal care

assistant for about 20 years, most recently for helping a blind person in Chicago. She makes $11.65 an hour and claimed she worked from 7 to 9 a.m., 1 to 3 p.m., and 6 to 7 p.m. daily – at least three hours of which, not counting commuting time, overlapped with hours she repeatedly had reported as working for the secretary of state’s office. She was fired in September when the inspector’s report was finished, but she remains on the Human Services payroll. “Regardless if any employee knows the secretary or not, unethical conduct will not be tolerated and people in violation will lose their positions as was the case here,” Druker said. Human Services spokeswoman Januari Smith said she could not comment because of the investigation, which also involves the state police and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Liss does not have a published phone number and

could not be contacted. Liss began working for White in June 2010, according to the inspector general’s report, which was first reported this week by Crain’s Chicago Business. In December 2010, she moved to the securities department, which regulates the securities industry and protects investors. Using a conservative estimate of three overlapping hours, the inspector general found that White’s office paid Liss for 444 duplicate work hours – when she reported being at both the secretary of state’s office and the health care client’s home – from December 2012 to July 2013. In addition to her $80,000 salary, state records indicate Liss received $21,000 from Human Services in 2012 and so far this year, $18,400. When she applied for a secretary of state’s job in June 2010 and later for the chief deputy director’s post, Liss reported receiving bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Loyola University, but the school has no such records.

Few options for Obama to fix cancellations By RICARDO ALONSO–ZALDIVAR The Associated Press WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama says he’ll do everything he can to help people coping with health insurance cancellations, but legally and practically his options appear limited. That means the latest political problem engulfing Obama’s health care overhaul may not be resolved quickly, cleanly or completely. White House deputy

spokesman Josh Earnest said Friday that the president has asked his team to look at administrative fixes to help people whose plans are being canceled as a result of new federal coverage rules. Obama, in an NBC interview Thursday, said “I am sorry” to people who are losing coverage and had relied on his assurances that if they liked their plan, they could keep it. The focus appears to be on easing the impact for a specific group: people whose policies

have been canceled and who don’t qualify for tax credits to offset higher premiums. The administration has not settled on a particular fix and it’s possible the final decision would apply to a broader group. Still, a president can’t just pick up the phone and order the Treasury to cut checks for people suffering from insurance premium sticker shock. Spending would have to be authorized by law. Another obstacle: Most of the discontinued policies ap-

pear to have been issued after the law was enacted, according to insurers and independent experts. Legally, that means they would have never been eligible for cancellation protections offered by the statute. Its grandfather clause applies only to policies that were in effect when the law passed in 2010. More than five weeks after open-enrollment season started for uninsured Americans, Obama’s signature domestic

policy achievement is still struggling. Persistent website problems appear to have kept most interested customers from signing up. Repairs are underway. Friday the administration said the website’s income verification component will be offline for maintenance until Tuesday morning. An enrollment report expected next week is likely to reflect only paltry sign-ups. Website woes have been eclipsed by the uproar over

cancellation notices sent to millions of people who have individual plans that don’t measure up to the benefits package and level of financial protection required by the law. “It was clear from the beginning that there were going to be some winners and losers,” said Timothy Jost, a law professor at Washington and Lee University in Virginia, who supports the health overhaul. “But the losers are calling reporters, and the winners can’t get on the website.”

New rule demands parity for mental health coverage By KEVIN FREKING The Associated Press

Secretary of State John Kerry smiles as he arrives Friday at Geneva International Airport in Switzerland for closed-door nuclear talks at the United Nations offices.

Kerry mounts diplomatic push on Iran nuclear talks The ASSOCIATED PRESS GENEVA – With a boost from Russia and China, Secretary of State John Kerry mounted a major diplomatic push Friday to reach an interim nuclear deal with Iran, despite fierce opposition from Israel and uncertainty in Congress. But day-long talks, including a five-hour meeting that brought together Kerry and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, failed to resolve differences. Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator, Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi, described the latenight session as “productive” but added, without elaboration, that “we still have lots of work to do” and talks would continue Saturday.

A senior State Department official said “over the course of the evening we continued to make progress” but “there is more work to do.” He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to characterize the talks. Kerry and his counterparts from Britain, France and Germany arrived in Geneva with the talks at a critical stage following a full day of negotiations Thursday and said some obstacles remained in the way of any agreement offering sanctions reductions for nuclear concessions. Word that Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and a Chinese deputy foreign minister also were headed to the talks provided fresh hope for at least an interim deal, perhaps on Saturday.

But Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu insisted any agreement in the making was a “bad deal” that gave Iran a pass by offering to lift sanctions for cosmetic concessions that Netanyahu said left intact Tehran’s nuclear weapons-making ability. Asked about Netanyahu’s criticism, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said “any critique of the deal is premature” because an agreement has not been reached. The White House later said President Barack Obama called Netanyahu to update him on the ongoing talks and said Obama affirmed he’s still committed to preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. The White House said Obama and Netanyahu will stay in close contact.

WASHINGTON – It’s final: Health insurance companies must cover mental illness and substance abuse just as they cover physical diseases. The Obama administration issued new regulations Friday that spell out how a 5-year-old mental health parity law will be administered. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said the rule should put an end to discrimination faced by some mental health patients through higher outof-pocket costs or stricter limits on hospital stays or visits to the doctor. The law, signed by President George W. Bush, was designed to prevent that. But mental health advocates said health insurers at times sidestepped lawmakers’ intentions by delaying requests for care and putting in place other bureaucratic hurdles. They described the new Obama administration rule as necessary to ensure patients get benefits they are entitled to receive.

The administration had pledged to issue a final mental health parity rule as part of an effort to reduce gun violence. Officials said they have now completed or made significant progress on 23 executive actions that were part of a plan announced in response to the school massacre in Newtown, Conn., last December. The 2008 mental health parity law affects large group plans. It does not require they offer mental health coverage, but if they do, that coverage must be equal to what is provided for patients with physical illnesses. Meanwhile, the Affordable Care Act extends the parity protections for those participating in individual and small group health insurance plans. “For way too long, the health care system has openly discriminated against Americans with behavioral health problems,” Sebelius said in a telephone conference call with reporters. “We are finally closing these gaps in coverage.” Sebelius said that access to mental health coverage

had already been improving since passage of the 2008 mental health parity law. She noted that larger employer health insurance plans have eliminated higher cost-sharing for inpatient mental health care and said most plans have done the same for outpatient care. HHS officials said mental health services generally amount to only about 5 percent of a large group insurance plan’s spending, so there should be limited impact on premiums. They said the small group and individual plans being made available through health insurance exchanges already reflect the parity requirements. Health insurers said the final rule doesn’t really change the landscape they’ve been operating in since interim rules were released in 2010. Karen Ignagni, president and CEO of American’s Health Insurance Plans, said health plans have long supported the legislation and have worked to implement its requirements in an affordable and effective way for patients.

More lenient lice policies bug some parents By JENNIFER C. KERR The Associated Press

MANILA, Philippines – One of the strongest storms on record slammed into the central Philippines, killing more than 100 people whose bodies lay in the streets of one of the hardest-hit cities, an official said Saturday. Capt. John Andrews, deputy director general of the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines, said more than 100 others were injured in the city of Tacloban on Leyte Island, where Typhoon Haiyan hit Friday. With power and most communications knocked out a day after the typhoon ravaged the central region, Andrew told The Associated Press that the information about the deaths was relayed to him by his staff in Tacloban. “The information is reliable,” he said. Nearly 750,000 people were forced to flee their homes and damage was believed to be extensive. Weather officials said Haiyan had sustained winds of 147 mph with gusts of 170 mph when it made landfall. By those measurements, Haiyan would be comparable to a strong Category 4 hurricane in the U.S., nearly in the top category, a 5. Hurricanes, cyclones and typhoons are the same thing. They are just called different names in different parts of the world. Because of cut-off communications in the Philippines, it was impossible to know the

full extent of casualties and damage. Officially, four people were listed as dead as of Saturday morning, before the latest information from Tacloban came in. Southern Leyte Gov. Roger Mercado said the typhoon ripped roofs off houses and triggered landslides that blocked roads. The dense clouds and heavy rains made the day seem almost as dark as night, he said. “When you’re faced with such a scenario, you can only pray and pray and pray,” Mercado told The Associated Press by telephone, adding that mayors in the province had not called in to report any major damage. “I hope that means they were spared and not the other way around,” he said. “My worst fear is there will be massive loss of lives and property.” Eduardo del Rosario, head of the disaster response agency, said the speed at which the typhoon sliced through the central islands – 25 mph – helped prevent its 375-mile band of rain clouds from dumping enough of their load to overflow waterways. Flooding from heavy rains is often the main cause of deaths from typhoons. “It has helped that the typhoon blew very fast in terms of preventing lots of casualties,” regional military commander Lt. Gen. Roy Deveraturda said. He said the massive evacuation of villagers before the storm also saved many lives.

WASHINGTON – Some schools are letting kids with live lice in their hair back in the classroom, a less restrictive policy that has parents scratching their heads. “Lice is icky, but it’s not dangerous,” said Deborah Pontius, the school nurse for the Pershing County School District in Lovelock, Nev. Previously, most schools have required children with lice to be sent home, in an attempt to prevent the spread to other children. Children haven’t been allowed to return to the classroom until all the lice and nits, or lice eggs, are removed. Also, schools customarily send notes home to let parents know that a child in class had lice so that they could be on the lookout for lice. Pontius has stopped doing that, as well. The policy shift is designed to help keep children from missing class, shield children

with lice from embarrassment and protect their privacy. Schools in Tennessee, California, Florida, Nebraska, New Mexico and South Carolina also are adopting the more lenient lice policy.

Q: What are lice? A: Lice are tiny grayish-white bugs that infest a scalp, sucking bits of blood every few hours. Lice don’t jump or fly. They crawl. They are not a sign of poor hygiene. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that there are 6 million to 12 million head lice infestations each year in the United States among children 3 to 11 years old. While itchy and unpleasant, health experts say lice don’t spread disease and are not a health hazard.

Q: Why the change in policy? A: Itchy children probably had lice for three weeks to two months by the time they’re sent to the nurse, Pontius said. Classmates already would have been exposed. There’s little additional risk of

transmission, she says, if the student returns to class for a few hours until the end of the day, when a parent would pick up the child and treat for lice at home. Parents with elementary school-aged kids should check their children’s hair for lice once a week anyway, Pontius said.

Q: What do the experts say? A: The American Academy of Pediatrics updated its guidelines in 2010 to adopt a “do not exclude” infested students recommendation for schools dealing with head lice. It has long encouraged schools to discontinue “nonit” policies. The itty-bitty nits – which can often be confused with dandruff – cement themselves to the hair shaft, making removal difficult. The National Association of School Nurses revised its position the following year. In its guidance, the association said children found with live head lice should remain in class but be discouraged from close direct head contact with

others and said the school nurse should contact the parent to discuss treatment.

Q: How do parents feel? A: Letting kids with untreated lice remain in class doesn’t sit well with some parents. “I’m appalled. I am just so disgusted,” said Theresa Rice, whose 8-year-old daughter, Jenna, has come home from her Hamilton County, Tenn., school with lice three times since August. “It’s just a terrible headache to have to deal with lice.” To pick out the tiny nits and lice from Jenna’s hair is a four-hour process. Add to that all the laundry and cleaning – it’s exhausting, she said. Jenna’s school implemented a policy in the past year that allows children with untreated lice to go home at the end of the day, be treated and then return to school. The policy, the district said, complies with the guidelines of both the Tennessee Department of Education and the CDC.

Status hearing for Fight with Mexican cartel small victory retrial set Wednesday By KATHERINE CORCORAN The Associated Press

• ARSON Continued from page A1 Aitken’s two vehicles were destroyed and her home was left uninhabitable, but she was not injured in the blaze. Fire experts testified that they could not identify the exact cause of the fire, other than it was started intentionally in a GMC SUV and spread to another vehicle in the driveway and eventually up the side of the home. The experts also said that an accelerant, a propane tank and a wicking device in the gas tank neck were used. The key piece of evidence for the prosecution was a GPS navigation device that arresting officers found in Ziegler’s pocket the morning of his arrest. Aitken testified that the GPS belonged to her and was inside her GMC Envoy before the vehicle was destroyed in the fire. The prosecution presented multiple witnesses who testified that Ziegler had a verbal altercation with Pennington the night before the fire. After the argument, one witness – Devon Weber – said Ziegler

told him he wanted to “blow up or set on fire” Pennington’s house. A second witness, Dakota Wilkinson, testified that Ziegler was looking around his backyard for something to construct a bomb. Wilkinson also testified that he saw Ziegler later in the evening riding a bike with a propane tank in hand. Pennington himself testified that he had an argument with Ziegler, during which Ziegler told him, “If I don’t find my drugs, I’m going to come to your house.” Edens claimed that it was Wilkinson who stole Ziegler’s drugs, and said it was Wilkinson, or a combination of Wilkinson and Weber, who were responsible for the fire. Edens added that since the gas caps were never recovered from the vehicles that caught fire, the jury could not convict Ziegler. Edens also argued that the GPS was given to Ziegler by Dakota Wilkinson as repayment for drugs. A status hearing for a retrial has been scheduled for Wednesday.

Centegra expects to hire 1,000 employees • CENTEGRA Continued from page A1 hospital with 100 surgical beds, an eight-bed intensive care unit, a full-service emergency department and a helipad for transporting critical-needs patients. The system plans on breaking ground in the spring with the hospital opening still planned for 2016, Eesley said. Before that can happen, though, Centegra needs final approval from the village of Huntley and to wrap up its final financing phase, said Susan Milford, Centegra’s se-

nior vice president for strategy and development. Centegra estimates the project will create 800 construction jobs and expects to hire 1,000 employees to staff the proposed Centegra Hospital – Huntley. The local economic impact from the construction, salaries and the purchase of medical equipment and furnishings is estimated at $197 million, according to the release. Mercy Health System has not decided whether it will appeal the decision, Mercy Vice President Richard Gruber said.

TEPALCATEPEC, Mexico – For lime grower Hipolito Mora, it was time to organize and pick up arms when a packing company controlled by a brutal drug cartel refused to buy his fruit. For Bishop Miguel Patino Velazquez, it was seeing civilians forced to fight back with their own guns that made him speak out. For Leticia, a lime picker too afraid of retribution to give her last name, it was the day she saw a taxi driver kidnapped in front of his two young children that convinced her to join those taking the law into their own hands. In Mexico they call it “the drop that makes the glass overflow,” and it came at different points for the people living for years in fear of the brutal Knights Templar in the western Valley of Apatzingan, an emerald green tapestry of

repeatedly sent troops and federal police into the area without success, has reached its own limit: an Oct. 27 attack by alleged cartel agents on power distribution plants and electrical substations in 14 towns and cities that were intended to terrorize the public. At least 400,000 people were left in the dark. Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam arrived by helicopter to the ranch town of Tepalcatepec two days later to meet with self-defense group leaders. “The attorney general came with two army generals to speak to me and said ‘We’ve come to help. What do you want us to do?’ ” said Dr. Jose Manuel Mireles, self-defense group leader in Tepacaltepec, speaking over breakfast in a grove of fat mango trees, his two-way radio crackling with movements of his patrols. He said the government promised operations in major

orchards bordered by bluegray peaks. “We lived in bondage, threatened by organized crime,” said Leticia, 40, who ekes out a living picking fruit and selling chicken on the side. “They wanted to treat people like animals.” Eight months after locals formed self-defense groups, they say they are free of the cartel in six municipalities of the Tierra Caliente, or “Hot Land,” which earned its moniker for the scorching weather but whose name has also come to signify criminal activity. What’s more, the self-defense group leaders, who are clearly breaking Mexican law by picking up military-style arms to fight criminals, say the federal government is no longer arresting them, but recruiting them to help federal forces identify cartel members. The Mexican government, which over seven years has

cities around the state. Federal security spokesman Eduardo Sanchez did not respond to several requests for comment about the government’s cooperation. On Monday, military and federal police moved into the Michoacan port of Lazaro Cardenas, a major source of cartel income due to the trafficking of drugs and precursor chemicals, as well as extortion. They dismissed 113 local police and took over security. About 40 officers were bused to Mexico City for questioning into rumors of corruption, according to one security official who wasn’t authorized to speak on the record. On Thursday, the army arrested the entire 25-officer police force of Vista Hermosa, also in northern Michoacan, a violent area where the Knights Templar are battling the New Generation, a cartel in neighboring Jalisco state.

Thank you, U.S. veterans The Northwest Herald Editorial Board offers this week’s thumbs up and thumbs down: Thumbs up: To the many Veterans Day events across the area in schools, VFW halls, American Legion posts, hospitals and churches over the several days leading up to Monday’s holiday. There are so many wonderful events featuring veteran speakers and large gatherings of heroes that we couldn’t possibly cover them all. It’s clear that we are surrounded by communities who deeply appreciate the sacrifices those who’ve been in the armed services have made for this country. It’s an important lesson to teach our students and evidence of communities that have their priorities in order. Thumbs down: To the District 47 Finance Committee for recommending a 2.9 percent increase in the district’s tax levy, meaning the owner of a $200,000 home in the district would see a $39 increase in the District 47 portion of the tax bill. The full board still needs to approve the levy increase. Many local taxing bodies have found a way to adjust their budgets to avoid levy increases. District 47 should look for more creative ways to avoid such an increase for taxpayers. Thumbs down: To state lawmakers who left Springfield on Thursday – again – without passing meaningful pension reform. While we sit and wait for lawmakers to have the courage to pass reform, the state’s unfunded pension liability continues to grow. House Speaker Michael Madigan offered excuses this week and said it’s possible lawmakers will be called back to Springfield before the end of the year to tackle pension reform. We won’t hold our breath.

8HOW CONGRESS VOTED A look at this week’s major votes in Congress and how those who represent McHenry County voted:

Anti-gay bias in the workplace The purpose: A bill to prohibit employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. The vote: Passed in the Senate on Thursday by 15 votes – 64 voted “yes,” 32 voted “no,” and four didn’t vote. Local representation: U.S. Sens. Dick Durbin (D) and Mark Kirk (R) voted “yes.”

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Donation delight To the Editor: It was so nice to see in Sunday’s paper that Target will donate 100 percent of the retail price of the plush dog Bullseye this holiday season. That’s so much better than the companies who pull you in with pink items to benefit breast cancer and then only 10 percent or less actually goes to breast cancer.

Rep. David McSweeney and Sen. Dan Duffy, stood up to be counted with those who would prevent people from enjoying the full rights of an American citizen. Thankfully there are enough of those in the Legislature that understand the real meaning of being an American and what freedom really entails. Hopefully, at the next election, we can all work to remove from office these representatives who support anti-American ideals.

It’s about lax gun laws The authorities cannot be accused of underreacting to the shootings at LAX. If anything, quite the opposite, given how many flights were canceled and passengers delayed in the hours after a tragedy that was quickly contained. Now that pulse rates are back down to normal, officials must undertake calm discussions about what to do – and not to do – to limit the chances of things like this happening again. First, they must realize the killing of a TSA agent and wounding of three others falls more in the category of the all-too-many mass shootings by unhinged individuals in recent years than among post-9/11 aviation security issues. This newspaper quoted security experts saying it’s surprising shooters don’t enter airports’ public areas more often. What a shocking admission, a symptom of the assumption that society cannot be made safer from nut jobs who obtain assault weapons and hundreds of rounds of ammunition. Investigators said Paul Ciancia, the 23-yearold accused of killing TSA agent Gerardo Ismael Hernandez to express conspiracist grievances, apparently made legal purchases of the Smith and Wesson M&P .223-caliber assault rifle used at LAX. Discussions should include whether changes in firearm policies could have made the mayhem less likely. Terminal 3 at LAX joins the list of notorious gun-crime scenes of just the past three years, alongside Tucson, Ariz.; Aurora, Colo.; Oak Creek, Wis.; Newtown, Conn.; Santa Monica, Calif.; and the Washington, D.C., Navy Yard. These are only the shootings that capture the public’s attention, because of where they occur, the body count and who was shot. They don’t include the murders that never make headlines. But the suggestion that Los Angeles International add passenger checkpoints, moving the security perimeter beyond where these shootings took place, is pointless. Wherever the first line of security is, that’s where an armed person could do his or her damage. The goal must be for air travelers to feel safe but not feel like victims of oppressive security. The sad fact is that this isn’t about airports. It’s about shootings anyplace that will happen as long as the nation shrugs and gives up trying to keep guns away from the wrong people.

You might not hear it, but American morale is falling with each poor decision made by our weak leaders such as Pat Quinn and Barack Obama.

Closer look at District 155 union numbers In the ongoing contract negotiations between teachers and School District 155, the District 155 Education Association has resorted to a typical union tactic: cherry-picking. To bolster its argument in the negotiations, the union’s website lists the average teacher salaries in several other school districts: Downers Grove District 99, Niles Township District 219 and Maine Township District 207 located in the Park Ridge area, among others. Conveniently, District 155’s average teacher salary of $94,866 is the second lowest on the list. Taken at face value, this list appears to be evidence that District 155 teachers are underpaid. But face value does not provide the truth. What the union did was select a handful of districts from other counties, even some districts as far as 50 miles away. Not only are these districts located in a different geographic region than Crystal Lake schools, the socioeconomics of these communities are quite different. All seven of the school districts the union identified as comparable are located in much wealthier communities than District 155. It makes sense that teachers in these districts are paid more, not only because the standard of living is higher,

GUST VIEW Paul Kersey but because these schools have access to much more property wealth that can be taxed. School districts are primarily funded by local property taxes, and property taxes are levied as a percentage of local property value. According to the most recent data available from the Illinois State Board of Education, in 2010, District 155 had approximately $3.2 billion of property wealth to tax. That is a lot of money – but among the lowest of any of the school districts listed on the union website. On a per-student basis, the property wealth for Crystal Lake students is lower than all of the other seven districts the union cherrypicked. Niles Township District 219, for example, has nearly $4.8 billion in property wealth to tax. Township High School District 214 in the Buffalo Grove, Wheeling and Elk Grove Village area has more than $10.4 billion in property wealth available to tax. These districts are much wealthier, but the District 155 teachers union is attempting to paint them as comparable.


The union’s list portraying its teachers as underpaid is extremely misleading. It’s resulted in a great deal of unjustified anguish for teachers, as well as parents who are now made to feel that the sky-high property taxes they pay in still isn’t enough to satisfy the demands of the teachers union. Justin Hubly, president of the District 155 Education Association, said the reason the union chose those districts was twofold: “We wanted to make sure we were comparing high schoolonly districts. Also our school district and administration has used those districts in the past to benchmark test scores. We just wanted to use the same list they had been using.” When looking at the high school-only districts in McHenry County, the teachers from District 155 still have the highest salaries. While it is reasonable to use schools with similar curriculums and standards for analyzing student achievement and test scores, it is ridiculous to expect taxpayers to pay equivalent or higher teacher salaries than districts from much wealthier communities with significantly higher tax bases. Here’s a different list that taxpayers in Crystal Lake should take a look at: the list of average teacher salaries in McHenry

County. On that list, District 155 teachers are the best-paid in the county by a longshot with their $94,866 average salary. The next highest average teacher salary is in Cary District 26, at $78,545. Countywide, the average teacher salary in McHenry county is $62,828. Clearly, the outrage over low teacher pay is misplaced at best. If anything, the comparison should lead District 155 taxpayers to wonder how their district is able to afford such high teacher salaries, and also to ask if it might be time for taxpayers to get some relief. Perhaps, given this new and more accurate information, the teachers will be willing to accept pay that is more reasonably priced given the socioeconomics of Crystal Lake. The District 155 Education Association should not try to compare its district to other districts that are not comparable economically. It is morally wrong for them to expect that District 155 taxpayers will adopt a pay schedule that is based on the economies and tax bases of much wealthier districts. Teacher union tricks like this aren’t fair. Teachers, administrators and taxpayers in District 155 shouldn’t fall for them. • Paul Kersey is the director of labor policy at the Illinois Policy Institute.

WORLD BOOK NIGHT AT J’BURG LIBRARY JOHNSBURG – The Johnsburg Public Library, 3000 N. Johnsburg Road, has been chosen to be a book pickup point for the 2014 World Book Night, scheduled for April 23.

Authors waive their royalties and publishers pay the costs of printing special World Book Night editions of those titles. Then bookstores and libraries sign up to be host sites for volunteer book givers. Volunteer book givers, who have to apply, get 20 copies of a title they’ve selected to hand out in the community. To learn how to become a Book Giver and for application details, visit The deadline to apply is Jan. 5.

Huntley interchange opens State, local officials celebrate completion of project with ribbon-cutting By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO HUNTLEY – State and Huntley officials put a decades-long effort behind them Friday in celebratory fashion – complete with honking semitrucks, racing flags and ribbons – as they officially opened the new, full-access interchange to traffic. Construction on the Route 47-Interstate 90 interchange, which opens Huntley’s southern boundaries to both eastbound and westbound interstate traffic, lasted 17 months, but the project’s groundwork began in the late 1990s at the urging of Huntley officials.

On Friday, officials from the village, state and county praised their ability to come together, pull resources and fund the long-awaited project, before they stood with scissors in hand and cut a ribbon along the western entrance ramp to I-90. “We’ve waited many years for this day to come,” Village President Chuck Sass said.

“Christmas has come early.” Sass credited the late Carl Tomaso, a former village manager, for the vision that made the interchange a reality. Tomaso’s idea to have local groups secure funding and partner with larger statewide agencies allowed the interchange to be built, Sass said. The Illinois Tollway Authority, Illinois Department of Transportation, McHenry and Kane counties and Huntley all contributed money to the project, which came under budget at $59 million total.

Veterans celebrated at McHenry County College By LAWERENCE SYNETT CRYSTAL LAKE – Noah Currier had a simple message for those in attendance at the Veterans Day ceremony at McHenry County College on Friday: Stay active and never look back. The 31-year-old war veteran was the keynote speaker at the annual event that honors men and women who served in the military. The ceremony also highlighted the opening of the Student Veterans Resource Cen-

ter at the Crystal Lake-based community college. “We live in the greatest country on Earth, and it’s the greatest country on Earth for a reason,” said Currier, who is paralyzed from the neck down and uses a wheelchair. “Veterans are the ones who deserve most of the credit for that. Many things exist because of the sacrifice they have made.” The Poplar Grove resident joined the Marines after high school in 2000 and originally was deployed to

McHENRY – A proposed expansion that would quadruple the size of a McHenry home received the goahead from a city committee Thursday evening. The size of the expansion had raised questions on whether it would fit into the surrounding Country Club subdivision, which dates to the early 1920s, but the Teardown Committee voted, 4-1, in favor of the project. Jeff and Jamie Grubich hope to demolish the home at 3208 Golfview Terrace and expand their 2,921-squarefoot home at 3214 Golfview Terrace onto the lot. While the expansion dwarfs the current residence at 7,943 square feet, much of the addition is situated behind the home and not visible from the road. The garage also is placed on an angle to minimize its visual impact from the road. The Grubiches also are requesting three variances, all of which need City Council approval. One request will need to go before the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission as well. “I was comfortable with the way I feel it will blend into the neighborhood,” Alderman Victor Santi said. “It won’t stick out like a sore thumb.” Because the project is in Santi’s ward, he was one of five people to sit on the committee, which by ordinance also includes the chairman of the Planning and Zoning Commission, the chairman of the Landmark Commission, a staff member from the Community

Two developers interested in preserving Huntley mill By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO HUNTLEY – The village received proposals from two undisclosed developers interested in preserving and redeveloping a historical 19th century mill in downtown Huntley. But Village Manager Dave Johnson said the responses don’t necessarily mean the mill, originally built in the late 1800s, would be redevel-

oped. The Village Board, he said, will have to decide in the coming weeks on the future direction of the building, which local historians have been clamoring to save. “No guarantees,” Johnson said. “The board needs to review and take a look at the proposals. There are many different components to what we see in those proposals, so we are still researching and reviewing, and we will ultimately present it to the Village Board

in the next couple of weeks.” The village has explored redeveloping the mill after officials acquired it last year for $115,000 as part of their ongoing effort to revitalize the look of downtown Huntley. A firm earlier this summer determined that the historical structure needed significant work to bring the building up to code. The village ultimately extended its redevelopment proposal deadline to the end

of October, after only a few developers expressed the desire to invest time and money to preserve the mill. Entering the final week of the extended deadline, the village still had not received a formal proposal, but officials warned at the time that developers typically wait until the last minute to submit ideas. The mill originally belonged to W.G. Sawyer and John Kelley, two local businessmen who were influential

in developing Huntley during the 1800s. After Huntley acquired the structure, local historians immediately lobbied village officials to preserve it upon hearing rumors that the village had plans to demolish the building. Members of the Huntley Historic Preservation Commission have since been meeting with village officials to stay updated on the future direction of the mill.

Shortly after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, he was sent to Afghanistan as part of Operation Enduring Freedom, and later Iraq as a platoon sergeant of a light armored reconnaissance battalion that led the way inland into the country as the war began. “I was forced into a leadership role at a very young age,” Currier said. “No matter what, I tried to lead by example, and any one of us can do that, because it relates to all walks of life.” Currier returned stateside in 2003 to Camp Pendleton, Calif., where his life changed in the blink of an eye. Three days after his return, he and a fellow Marine were struck by a driver who fell asleep at the wheel, their vehicle rolling about a dozen times into an embankment. The crash left the Marine a quadriplegic. Today, Currier is the founder and president of Os-

“It’s kind of an ironic way of getting hurt, but it might have been a blessing in disguise. I was pretty lucky to have even made it home. That’s the way my cards were dealt. I don’t ever look back with regret.” Noah Currier Founder of Oscar Mike, a military apparel company car Mike, a Marengo company that sells American-made, military-themed T-shirts and apparel. A percentage of proceeds go to the Oscar Mike Foundation, a nonprofit portion of the company that sends disabled veterans to adaptive sporting events. Oscar Mike is military radio jargon for “on the move.” The Marengo-based nonprofit celebrates its two-year

anniversary Monday. “It’s kind of an ironic way of getting hurt, but it might have been a blessing in disguise,” Currier said. “I was pretty lucky to have even made it home. That’s the way my cards were dealt. I don’t ever look back with regret.” Also speaking during the event was Ryan Blum, an Army veteran and president of the Military and Student Affairs Association at MCC. The 26-year-old served as an infantryman for one tour in Afghanistan and two tours in Iraq, and was a member of the 10th Mountain Division and worked in various roles as a machine gunner, team leader and squad leader. He will transfer from MCC after the spring semester and enroll at the American University of Paris, where he will study international and global politics. “It’s important for people to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice,” Blum said. “It’s nice to be thanked and see a genuine interest in our experiences.”

Former historical society administrator concerned with size, casts sole ‘no’ vote • EXPANSION Continued from page B1 Development Department and a member of the public.

“There’s no ordinance on how large a house can be. I couldn’t justify saying it’s too big to be there.” Pat Wirtz Landmark Commission chairman concerns about the project. Although the neighborhood contains a mix of newer homes

several times larger than the cottages that originally made up the subdivision, she thought the proposed home was too big. Despite his vote in favor of the project, Landmark Commission Chairman Pat Wirtz said he thought it also seemed too big for the area. “There’s no ordinance on how large a house can be,” he said. “I couldn’t justify saying it’s too big to be there.”

bring in Urban Land Institute experts to help village staff identify developers and bring them into the downtown area. Fox Lake’s development plan, which was adopted in August by the Village Board, centers around its Metra station. It was paid for using a $100,000 grant from the Regional Transit Authority. The plan suggests streetscape, landscape and facade improvements for the area, in particular the entrances to the village, Route 12 and

Grand Avenue. It recommends adding parking to free up the downtown area. It also gives the village ideas about areas to focus on, including Nippersink Road near Lakefront Park, and suggests possible uses for some of the buildings. The Pace suburban bus service received a $150,000 grant to provide technical assistance as it conducts planning in prospective communities. The goal is to improve local transit options and traffic flow.

New interchange includes six new ramps, reconstructed Route 47 bridge • INTERCHANGE

At a glance: Interchange tolls

Continued from page B1

n Toll rates at the new Route 47-Interstate 90 interchange will be 30 cents to and from the east and 45 cents to and from the west. n Truck rates range from 60 cents to $1.50 to and from the east and 95 cents to $2.50

Since construction started, the Tollway, which oversaw the project, has touted Huntley’s approach as the model for future interstate projects. The new interchange is the first project completed under the Tollway’s “Move Illinois” program, a $12 billion infrastructure overhaul spanning 15 years. Tollway Executive Director Kristi Lafleur; state Rep. Mike Tryon, R-Crystal Lake; and state Sen. Pam Althoff, R-McHenry, all credited Huntley for taking the lead on the project and thanked the many agencies involved. “It’s exciting to be here and cut a ribbon on a project that means so much to Huntley,” Tryon said. After the ribbon was

snipped, officials waved to vehicles from local businesses near the interchange through the new western ramp with black-and-white racing flags. Drivers from Dean Foods, Tom Peck Ford, General RV, Rohrer Corp., LDI Industries, LionHeart Engineering and FYH Bearings honked horns while passing through. The new interchange includes six new ramps and a reconstructured Route

to and from the west in the daytime. Overnight discounts are offered. n Drivers also will need an I-Pass to use the all-electronic interchange.

Source: The Illinois Tollway Authority 47 bridge. The old, eastbound-only interchange at Route 47 and I-90 was constructured in the early 1970s. Huntley officials now will try to capitalize on the full-access interchange and attempt to draw manufacturers and industrial companies to area, as part of an effort to bolster the village’s business sector. The village already has more than 300 acres zoned in the area for commercial and industrial use.

Keeping From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. track of all the different states we see represented and marking them down on some odd 815-385-0931 scrap of paper found floating in the car. Just a few months ago, I realized that I play a less formal version of this game all the time.

The “wow, she is a little crazier than I thought but I shouldn’t be surprised by what I’m hearing” look the Golfer saves for moments just like that. Although he doesn’t play along daily, he’s very supportive when I call him at work to scream in his ear “I’m on Randall Road and I’m behind an ALASKA!” Speaking of Randall Road, we all travel certain routes every day. Some of us select the best one for certain times of the day, strategically choose lanes and avoid stoplights when possible; others just drive. When I explained this to the Golfer, he shook his head. But we have made many extra trips around the block when he has pulled out the driveway and headed the wrong direction. “How do I ever make from Point A to Point B without you in the car?” the Golfer has sarcastically asked a few times. My thoughts exactly! Quick review: We kept the weekly movie date night going and saw “Rush,” the Ron Howard film about Formula One drivers in the 1970s. The Golfer gave it a Birdie on a Par 5 and I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Interesting sports story (even the Golfer didn’t know it!) and I must say Chris Hemsworth can work that shaggy ‘70s look. “12 Years a Slave” is penciled in for Tuesday since it has finally opened at theaters out here. Enjoy the weekend! Autumn

Hosta of Spring Grove – has announced he will seek the Democratic nomination in the March 18 primary for the 14th Congressional District, the seat currently held by U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren, R-Winfield. Hosta, 55, a small-business owner who makes custom bedding for interior designers, said he will kick off his campaign at 7 p.m. Nov. 22 in the Kane County Government Center, Building A, 719 S. Batavia Ave., Geneva. “I’m a conservative Demo-

crat,” Hosta said. In deciding this platform for seeking office, Hosta said he compiled a list of what he thinks is important and also vital to people in the district. “ I feel I am not a hard-right liner and not hard liberal,” Hosta said. “I’m John J. Hosta a moderate.” His platform is to bring industry back to the United States with tax incentives. Hosta said the nation has lost 30 percent of its manufacturing jobs, directly related to imports in the past 12 years. “I believe that the Found-

ing Fathers of our country were dedicated to U.S. companies, protecting U.S. industries through tariffs,” Hosta said. “Since World War II, we have fallen away from that. Companies seek what is most profitable for them and move abroad. ... I think that is very anti-American. The cry of the American people is for them to be faithful to this country and bring industries back.” Hosta also supports protections for Social Security and welfare, and said unemployment and food stamp programs need to be reviewed and strengthened – not cut. “The elderly are scared, extremely concerned that ben-

efits will be cut or have to be cut,” Hosta said. “And people on disability – you can’t just turn your back on them. As a society, we are obligated to these people.” Hosta is the second Democrat to declare for the primary, following Dennis Anderson of Gurnee. Anderson lost to incumbent Hultgren last year but announced in August that he would seek the Democratic nomination again. Hultgren announced in September his intention to seek re-election. The 14th District includes seven suburban counties – Kane, DuPage, DeKalb, Will, McHenry, Lake and Kendall.

ON SCREEN NOW RATED: PG-13 for some violence, sci-fi

“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.flagged MV Maersk Alabama, the first 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’ “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. Tom Hanks 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). 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. 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. 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. 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

action and thematic material TIME: 1 hour, 54 minutes VERDICT: An anti-bullying allegory writ on the largest possible scale, “Ender’s Game” frames an interstellar battle between mankind and pushy antlike aliens, called Formics, in which Earth’s fate hinges on a tiny group of military cadets, most of whom haven’t even hit puberty yet. At face value, the film presents an electrifying star-wars scenario – that rare case where an epic space battle transpires entirely within the span of two hours – while at the same time managing to deliver a higher pedagogical message about tolerance, empathy and coping under pressure. Against considerable odds, this risky-sounding Orson Scott Card adaptation actually works, as director Gavin Hood pulls off the sort of teen-targeted franchise starter Summit was hoping for. Card’s novel assumes a situation where, in the wake of a massive Formic attack, the world’s children are somehow best suited to protect their planet from an imminent second strike. The most promising young recruits train on elaborate videogame-like simulators while a pair of officers – Col. Hyrum Graff (Harrison Ford) and Major Gwen Anderson (Viola Davis) – monitor their techniques in search of “the One,” a child with the strategic instincts to save his species. The leading candidate is Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a runt-like outsider whose behavior toward his aggressive classmates reveals his true potential. Like “The Hunger Games,” the pic peddles the unseemly idea of watching kids thrust into life-and-death situations. Although they’re not instructed to kill one another, these moppets’ prime directive should also give parents pause, raising the stakes from hand-to-hand combat to the potential genocide of an unfamiliar race. Fortunately, Hood (who also penned the adaptation) factors these weighty themes into the story without making them the primary focus. Between the officers, Graff’s agenda is more complicated than he lets on, while Anderson represents the voice of reason, remarking, “It used to be a war crime to recruit anyone under the age of 15.” But these are not soldiers, per se, but highly skilled Junior ROTC types, training on virtual conflict scenarios. Butterfield – who has grown into his big blue eyes, if not the rest of his body, since “Hugo” – makes ideal casting for Ender: He’s scrawny and physically unimposing, yet there’s an intensity to his stare that suggests he might indeed be masking deeper (or darker) gifts. It’s nothing so powerful as the Force, or Neo’s Matrix-bending abilities, though “Ender’s Game” dedicates nearly its entire run time to Battle School, where our hero and his fellow recruits practice various drills, including an anti-gravity game (the rules of which aren’t terribly clear) that looks like the next best thing to Quidditch. Despite the obvious “be all you can be” subtext, “Ender’s Game” manages to make these training sequences compelling without veering into pro-military propaganda, doing so by focusing on the interpersonal dynamics among the various squad members. – Variety

Associated Press

“Last Vegas”

“Ender’s Game” STARRING: Harrison Ford, Asa Butterfield, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin

PLOT: The International Military seeks out a leader who can save the human race from an alien attack. Ender Wiggin, a brilliant young mind, is recruited and trained to lead his fellow soldiers into a battle that will determine the future of Earth.

STARRING: Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, Morgan Freeman, Kevin Kline PLOT: Three sixty-something friends take a break from their day-to-day lives to throw a bachelor party in Las Vegas for their last remaining single pal. RATED: PG-13 on appeal for sexual content and language

TIME: 1 hour, 45 minutes VERDICT: As creaky as an arthritic hip, “Last Vegas” does for four leading stars of the ’70s and ’80s what movies like “Tough Guys” and “Grumpy Old Men” did for survivors of Hollywood’s storied Golden Age: It lets them show they can still throw a punch, bust a move and get it on, and that they’re not quite ready for the Motion Picture Home just yet. Beyond that, this genteel “Hangover” for the AARP crowd has little to recommend it, although a smattering of funny gags and the nostalgia value of the cast keeps the whole thing more watchable than it has any right to be. “Last Vegas” scribe Dan Fogelman (who wrote the monumentally smarter and shrewder “Crazy, Stupid, Love”) pretty much sticks to the lowest common denominator as he contrives to get four childhood friends together in Sin City for the bachelor party of the last unmarried man among them. He’s named Billy and played by a blowdried, spray-tanned Michael Douglas in what feels like a watered-down version of the actor’s magnificent aging lothario from 2009’s “Solitary Man.” When Billy impulsively proposes to his strapping 31-year-old girlfriend (in the midst of delivering a friend’s eulogy, no less), best bud Sam (Kevin Kline) – the one trapped in that infernal Florida swimming pool – suggests a boy’s weekend in Vegas, and the rest of this white-haired wolf pack is soon to follow. Back when they were kids on the streets of Brooklyn, Billy and his pals were known as the Flatbush Four, although now they’re mainly just flat and bushed: In addition to Sam, there’s stroke survivor Archie (Morgan Freeman, essentially reprising his “Bucket List” character) and surly widower Paddy (Robert De Niro), who hasn’t forgiven Billy for skipping out on his wife’s funeral (she was their shared childhood sweetheart). From all points, they converge on the ultra-luxurious Aria casino resort, where they find themselves comped with a penthouse suite – and a personal concierge (Romany Malco) – after Archie cleans house at the blackjack table. That pretty much gives them the run of the place, though they do make one important side trip to nearby Binion’s, where Billy catches the eye of a jazz chanteuse shimmering in a sparkly mauve gown as she belts out “Only You” in a desolate hotel bar. The singer, Diana (Mary Steenburgen), also is “of a certain age” and has been around the block a few times, but unlike her male counterparts in “Last Vegas,” she’s been written as more than a one-dimensional type, and she’s played by the marvelous Steenburgen with a richness that goes even beyond what’s on the page. The rest of the movie rarely if ever rises to Steenburgen’s level.

“Thor: The Dark World” STARRING: Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston

PLOT: Thor, faced with an enemy even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all. RATED: PG-13 for sequences of intense sci-fi action and violence, and some suggestive content TIME: 1 hour, 51 minutes

VERDICT: Comic book movies are increasingly, like Sandra Bullock in “Gravity,” lost in space. Following the summer’s glumly bombastic “Man of Steel,” which added a heavy dose of Krypton politics to Superman’s once pleasantly silly story, comes “Thor: The Dark World,” in which Thor’s Asgard, a celestial home

of gods floating somewhere in the universe, is the primary setting. Earth is an afterthought – just one of the “nine realms,” albeit the one with Natalie Portman. Gone are the earthbound pleasures of a superhero amid us mortals. Such was the joy of the “Spider-Man” movies and the first “Thor,” when Chris Hemsworth’s lofty, hammer-wielding Norse warrior, exiled to Earth, so happily encountered a cup of coffee for the first time. As Marvel’s latest 3-D behemoth, “Thor: The Dark World” isn’t so much a sequel as the latest plug-and-play into the comic book company’s blockbuster algorithm. It’s a reliably bankable formula of world-saving action sequences, new villain introductions and clever quips from women on the side, (and they, most assuredly, are always off to the side). The expansive Marvel universe is carefully stitched together across its many properties. “The Dark World” (with director Alan Taylor of “Game of Thrones” taking over for Kenneth Branaugh) follows “The Avengers” in chronology and runs alongside the current, unremarkable ABC series “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Each is referred to with something less than, say, the binding connections of Faulkner’s Yoknapatawpha County. Instead we get cloying winks. The great city of New York, for example, is reduced to shorthand for the climactic battle in “The Avengers,” as if we’re still so consumed by that movie. Yes, we’re all very impressed it made so much money. Thor has spent the last two years restoring order to the nine realms of the cosmos, but just as peace settles, a previously locked-away dark energy called the Aether seeps out. It leaks into Portman’s astrophysicist, Jane Foster, awakening a previously vanquished species of Dark Elves, led by Malekith (Christopher Eccleston). They would like to see the universe returned to complete darkness. Not a day person, this Malekith. This occurs as the nine realms are lining up in a rare convergence that makes them particularly susceptible to Aether-spread ruin. There’s not a lick of character to Malekith and his motives: He just wants to end all life. To save Life As We Know It, Thor seeks help from his duplicitous adoptive brother, Loki (Tom Hiddleston), who has been imprisoned for killing thousands of humans at “New York.” Hiddleston’s sneering Loki remains one of the finest Marvel antagonists, and – now with a starring role in three films – the franchise seems to value him as much as his more heroic brother. When “The Dark World” touches down on Earth, away from the “Clash of the Titans”-style realms of gods, it’s considerably better. Along with Portman, returning is the sarcasm sidekick Kat Dennings (as Jane’s intern) and Stellan Skarsgard as discredited scientist Erik Selvig. Chris O’Dowd makes a welcome cameo as a blind date for a very reluctant Jane. The tone is far more amiable on Earth (London, to be specific, the site of the final showdown) than in Asgard, where Anthony Hopkins, Renee Russo and Idris Elba remain locked in golden-hued majesty. Ardent fans (who should stay through the credits) will likely be satiated by the pleasing enough “Thor: The Dark World.” But perhaps at this point, even diehards may wish for something more from a Marvel equation that often subtracts humanity.

Independent woman sets bar Prevent flat spots on baby’s high in search for Mr. Right head by varying his position Dear Abby: I’m a single woman who has had a string of unsuccessful relationships. When a man is into me, I’m not into him and vice versa. I know the problem is mostly mine. I’m very independent. I don’t want a man to consume my life – just be a part of it. It seems like the men I date want to smother me. My friends tell me most women enjoy this. I hate it. I need a certain amount of time alone. I am attracted to manly men, but the ones who are attracted to me are either emotionally needy or they take longer to get ready to go anywhere than I do. It’s frustrating. I have met some men who would have been wonderful catches, but I felt nothing. I know friendship is the basis of all relationships, but physical attraction is important to me. A relationship won’t work if I can’t bring myself to be intimate with the person. In all my years of dating, I have been in love only twice. Any help would be appreciated. – Lost In Washington

State Dear Lost: I wish I had a magic lamp that would give you what you’re looking for in a puff of smoke, but I don’t. What I can offer is you need to continue looking for someone who is as independent as you are, so you can find an

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips attractive man whose needs are similar to yours. Some couples find the process of dating a smooth and easy one. For others it’s complicated, but not impossible. I agree the basis of strong relationships is friendship and compatibility. Dear Abby: How does one stop family and old friends from going on and on about their aches, pains, symptoms, conditions, doctor visits and medications in excruciating detail? Aside from my mother (who is 85), I don’t care to hear about this from others. It has taught me a lesson I wish people would follow: While I do have back issues, I speak of them only to my doctor. I try to be patient, but some folks seem to need someone to vent to. I don’t want to be the one they “tell all” to. I try to tune it out, but I wish there was an easy way to let them know enough is enough. Any ideas on the best way to handle these people? Or am I stuck being a good listener forever? – Nobody’s Therapist

subject to something you read in the newspaper, saw on television or that’s happening in your community. Dear Abby: Tell me what you would have done in this situation. While dining at an expensive restaurant on a rare night out, we were seated directly across from a nice-looking family. As I was eating my meal, I had a nauseating view of their child’s butt crease. The boy was about 12 or 14, and I didn’t want to embarrass him in a public place, but it put a damper on my enjoyment of the meal. Would it have been appropriate to approach his mother and quietly tell her? Obviously, the kid didn’t know or care he was exposed. The restaurant was full, so I couldn’t request another table. – Lost

My Appetite In Myrtle Beach, S.C. Dear Lost Your Appetite: The first thing I would have done was resist the urge to walk over and plant a stalk of celery in the great divide.

Dear Dr. K: I know it’s safer for my baby to sleep on his back, but I’m worried he’ll develop flat spots on the back of his head. What can I do to prevent this? Dear Reader: Flat spots on the head are becoming more common in babies. As you suspect, that’s likely because more babies are sleeping on their backs than on their bellies. We want babies to sleep on their backs to decrease the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Since the “Back to Sleep” recommendation went into effect in 1994, the rate of SIDS has dropped by half. But sleeping on the back does put pressure on the back of a baby’s head. Babies have soft, malleable skulls. This helps them get through the birth canal and allows for the rapid brain growth that happens during infancy. It also makes their skulls sensitive to pressure, especially when that pressure is always in the same place. Flat spots don’t cause brain damage or affect brain function. They can, however,

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff lead to teasing if the shape is very abnormal. To prevent flat spots, change the position of your baby’s head throughout the day: • Give your baby “tummy time” when he is awake and being watched. Do this for at least a few minutes a few times a day. • Carry your baby in a sling or other baby carrier to take pressure off his head. • Vary the position of your baby’s head when he is lying down. You may have to literally turn his head so he is facing the other way. If your baby prefers one side to another, position his seat or bassinet during the day so the more interesting things to look at are on the less-preferred side. Most flat spots are mild and go away once babies are a little older and spend less time lying down. In severe cases, your pediatrician

can prescribe a soft helmet that shields the skull from pressure, allowing the head to grow naturally into a rounder shape. Few parts of our body were built to take constant challenge and pressure. Many parts are always working – like the heart and lungs. However, even they get a bit of a rest at night. And our bones, muscles and joints regularly get a break during the day and when we sleep. Bed sores, for example, develop when sick people in bed all day are not turned regularly to put pressure on different parts of their body. So there are ways to protect the shape of your baby’s head and to prevent flat spots from forming on his soft skull. But whatever you do, keep putting your baby on his back to sleep. It greatly reduces the risk of SIDS.

Wife: Chef was treated for aneurysm


The wife of Charlie Trotter said doctors discovered the acclaimed chef had an aneurysm months before he died and he’d been taking medicine to control seizures, his blood pressure and high cholesterol. Trotter was declared dead Tuesday at a Chicago hospital after paramedics found him unresponsive in his home. An autopsy conducted Wednesday ruled out foul play or trauma, but the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office said an exact cause of death could not be determined until toxicology tests and other tests are completed. It could take up to eight weeks. In a statement to, Rochelle Trotter said the aneurysm was discovered in January and doctors had prescribed the “proper medication.”

NBC gets commercial space trip coverage NBC has won the television space race. The network announced Friday it has signed a deal with Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic to televise the company’s first commercial space flight. Branson and his two adult children, Holly and Sam, will be the first private passengers to travel into space next year through his company. The launch will be part of a three-hour special “Today” show. NBC’s Peacock Productions unit also will offer programming leading up to the flight across the company’s other outlets, including CNBC, MSNBC, SyFy and The Weather Channel. Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo will leave from the company’s terminal in New Mexico.

‘Star Trek’ actress to pen memoir Kate Mulgrew has figured out a way to introduce her two great passions, acting and writing, to each other: She’s working on a memoir. Little, Brown and Company announced a deal Thursday with Mulgrew, the actress known for her roles in “Star Trek: Voyager” and “Ryan’s Hope.” The 58-year-old Mulgrew will tell the story of being an unmarried mother who gave up her daughter for adoption during the start of her career, her reunion with her daughter in 2001 and “the costs and rewards of a passionate life.” The book is untitled and scheduled to come out in May 2015. Mulgrew also stars in the Netflix series “Orange is the New Black” and has been in such stage productions as “Tea at Five” and “Equus.”

Morissette album headed to stage If Alanis Morissette gets her wish, Broadway will swallow a jagged little pill. The singer-songwriter said Friday she hopes to adapt her 1995 breakthrough album “Jagged Little Pill” for the stage. Though no story is yet written, a workshop is planned for next year. Broadway veteran Tom Kitt, who adapted Green Day’s “American Idiot” as well as the original, Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical “Next to Normal,” will provide orchestrations and arrangements. The show, right now called “Jagged Little Pill,” will include the albums hits, including “You Oughta Know,” “Ironic,” “You Learn” and “Head Over Feet.” She would join a glut of pop stars exploring the stage, including Sheryl Crow, John Mellencamp, Sarah McLachlan, Tori Amos, Edie Brickell, David Byrne, Fatboy Slim, Burt Bacharach and Elvis Costello.

Eminem’s childhood home catches fire A fire has burned the childhood home of rapper Eminem in Detroit. The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press report crews responded Thursday evening to the boarded-up bungalow,

which is pictured on the cover of Eminem’s just-released “The Marshall Mathers LP 2.” It also was on the musician’s 2000 album “The Marshall Mathers LP.” The blaze damaged portions of the small home’s top floor. The cause of the fire wasn’t immediately known. Public records show the home was listed as the address of Eminem’s mother, Deborah Mathers, starting in the 1980s. It later changed hands. The home was listed earlier this year for online auction by the state. A past owner tried to sell it on eBay for $500,000 but received no bids.

Print edition of The Onion to end In poking fun at current events, satirical newspaper The Onion often finds a way to heap ridicule on the newspaper industry. But just like some news outlets it lampoons, The Onion announced Friday it is ending the last of its print editions and moving to an all-online format. Print advertising revenue has been drying up during the industry’s transition to a digital-dominated media landscape, and newspapers have been gradually scaling back or eliminating print editions entirely. The Onion’s last print editions – in Providence, R.I., Milwaukee and the paper’s home city of Chicago – will run Dec. 12. Onion, Inc. President Mike McAvoy said the company’s focus in recent years has been on “growing the digital side” of the business. “While the print edition is an important part of our history, we are very excited for the opportunities that come with prioritizing digital for even greater company growth,” McAvoy said in a statement. Started by two students at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1988, the free satirical weekly has made people laugh for a quarter-century with headlines such as this one from its latest edition: “Giant burrito to solve all of Area Man’s problems for 6 precious minutes.”

Woodstock schools to discuss leaving FVC By JOE STEVENSON and JEFF ARNOLD Woodstock and Woodstock North may be looking to join another conference for athletics. Under “New Business” on the District 200 school board’s agenda for

Tuesday’s meeting is an item “Fox Valley Conference Discussion.” The item says that there will be discussion “regarding the creation of and participation in a new athletic conference.” Neither athletic director, Glen Wilson of Woodstock nor Nic Kearfott of Woodstock North, returned phone calls on the subject Friday.

Woodstock boys basketball coach Alex Baker said the coaches were instructed to keep any discussion before the meeting “in-house.” Woodstock North opened in the 2009-10 school year, and the enrollment is now almost split between the schools with North at 918 students and Woodstock at 957. Johnsburg (766) is leaving for the Big Northern

Conference after this school year, which will leave Hampshire (1,185) as the next-smallest FVC school besides the Woodstocks. Woodstock and Woodstock North would fit well geographically with the BNC. If they would move that direction, it would bring the BNC membership to 18, divided into two nine-team divisions for most sports.

CL South needs 1 more win to reach state semifinals By MAUREEN LYNCH

Supersectional pairing At the beginning of the season, Crystal Lake South volleyball coach Jorie Fontana asked her players the question they needed to answer before taking the court for the first time. What’s the intention this year? At first, the room was rather quiet, the players somewhat nervous to articulate the depth of their ambitions. Then, one player timidly raised her hand. “We’re going to state,” she said, almost asking. There it was. “I said, ‘Well, that’s not a goal when you just sit back and say it,’” Fontana said. “You have to stand up and shout it.”

Crystal Lake South vs. Lake Zurich, 6:30 p.m. Saturday at Huntley

Winner will play Normal or Benet in the state semifinals at 7:30 p.m. Friday in Normal. So the Gators did, realizing they had enough talent on the roster to set the state semifinals at Illinois State University’s Redbird Area as a legitimate goal. At 6:30 p.m. Saturday, the Gators will face Lake Zurich in the Class 4A Huntley Supersectional with a chance to appear in next weekend’s state tournament.

Crystal Lake South’s Katy Hoenle (left) and Gurnee Warren’s Rachel Siegler fight to push the ball toward each other’s side of the court Thursday in Belvidere.

Crystal Lake Central’s Ryan Pitner was actually surprised by his demeanor before last year’s Class 2A boys race at the state cross country meet. Everything is magnified, several times over, at state. There are way more people, more runners and it is, in many ways, how a runner will define his or her season. Yet Pitner remembers blocking all of that out. “I don’t know what it was,” Pitner said. “I didn’t pay attention to the runners or the people. I set myself a goal and thought about that. It wasn’t as intimidating as I thought it would be.” Pitner remembers locking in on his race, thinking about his game plan and a bet with his brother Jordan, who agreed to give him $50 if he broke 15:00. Pitner earned All-State status with a 23rd-place finish and the dough from his brother by hitting 15:00 on the nose. Pitner is one of the top local runners, hoping for a top performance Saturday at the state meet at Peoria’s Detweiller Park. Races run each hour, starting with Class 1A girls at 9 a.m., then finishing with Class 3A boys at 2 p.m. The tension before state races is almost palpable. Competitors gather at their starting boxes, practice run-outs, and, if their team is running, huddle together for one final pep talk. “I think about what I’m trying to do and my goals,” said Jacobs junior Lauren Van Vlierbergen, who was seventh in Class 3A last year. “I get nervous, but I get into my racing zone. I try to think of it as just another race, but obviously it’s a bigger race.”



Familiar foe awaits Marian By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO The last time Marian Central met Chicago Payton in a supersectional remains firmly etched in Marian Central coach Laura Watling’s memory. Watling, then an assistant to coach Deb Rakers, witnessed the Hurricanes fall apart in the Class 3A Grayslake Supersectional in 2008 against Payton, blowing a one-game lead with an ugly performance to deny them a state appearance. It’s a loss Watling hasn’t forgotten. Watling and the Hurricanes have a chance to avenge that upset at 1 p.m. Saturday in the Class 3A Antioch Supersection-

Supersectional pairing Marian Central vs. Chicago Payton, 1 p.m. Saturday at Antioch

With a win against Payton, Marian would advance to the state finals for the third time in four seasons. In 2010, the Hurricanes beat Payton in the thirdplace game, 2-0. “It’s not hard to believe, but it’s surreal,” senior middle blocker Hannah Davis said of being on the cusp of the state

finals. Marian hasn’t relied on just one unit to carry the team through the postseason. Whether it’s the Hurricanes’ athletic blockers slowing down opponents’ hitters or their offense stepping up as it did in their Burlington Sectional final win on Thursday. Marian’s versatility has created a dangerous team. A confident group heading into Saturday’s supersectional after finding a way to win the sectional title despite not playing their best against Burlington Central, the Hurricanes can’t be overlooked even with a 23-16 record.

Dolphins mess isn’t all black and white As the accusations, innuendo, half truths and gossip continue to flow out of South Florida regarding what may or may not have happened inside the Miami Dolphins football team, never have so many rushed to form conclusions and opinions based on so few facts. Was offensive tackle Jonathan Martin the victim of bullying and intimidation by veteran offensive guard Richie Incognito? Maybe. Was Martin a willing participant and possibly even responsible in his own right for a culture of machismo, crudeness to the point of vulgarity, sophomoric behavior and perhaps even racism that Incognito orchestrated and pursued in the name of fraternity and brotherhood? Maybe. Is Incognito the victim here, just a guy who thought he was doing what was best for his teammates and friends in a locker room culture

that was created generations before he found himself at the center of the storm? Maybe, but not likely. Martin is a confused and troubled young man. That doesn’t seem to be in debate. Incognito may or may not be guilty of some or all that he is being accused of. But Incognito’s résumé and rap sheet speak for themselves, and he’s not someone I’d want anywhere near my kids. That, however, doesn’t make him Martin’s bully. Brandon Marshall was Incognito’s teammate in Miami in 2010 and 2011 and said of him, “I played with Richie, I enjoyed playing with Richie and I stay in contact with Richie. It was disturbing to see some of the things that were said, but I know it’s not an isolated incident and it’s kind of the culture of the NFL.”

BEARS INSIDER Hub Arkush OK Brandon, but what about Incognito’s alleged repeated use of the “N word” toward Martin, who is biracial? “It goes both ways. We walk around saying the ‘N word’ as black players, and it’s not right, but we get offended when the white player says it. That’s on him, where his heart’s at, when he says it. It doesn’t make it right, but we can’t jump down the guy’s throat because he’s saying it and he’s white when the black guy’s saying it, too.” I was truly impressed by the level of thoughtful and unbiased perspective Marshall brought to the discussion. I guess that’s why I’m not nearly

ing of any kind. Never. I can’t imagine ever tolerating Incognito’s behavior aimed either at me, or anyone I cared about. But in the completely closed circle that this behavior occurred, it is quite possible Incognito and his teammates genuinely believed it was an appropriate way to show a teammate and friend they cared, and that Martin gave them every indication he agreed. Playing in the NFL is a privilege, not a right, and every player is there by choice. In spite of what so many of us may think, we do not have the right to decide what is always best for others. As wrong as bullying is, like everything else in life, it does not come with a one-size-fits-all definition.

as surprised or disappointed by the overwhelming support Incognito has received from his teammates while none have stepped up to speak for Martin. In our race to be politically correct, the majority of the media and fans alike have rushed to indict Incognito as the shameful bully and Martin an innocent victim, even as more evidence emerges that it’s not at all that simple. The most common explanation we’ve heard from Dolphins players about why they didn’t intervene or speak up on Martin’s behalf is that Martin made them feel as if he and Incognito were buddies. Martin regularly shared Incognito’s vulgarities with his teammates and laughed the loudest, indicating he understood the culture that allowed them and was proud to be a member. There is never an excuse for bully-

Are you Team Jay or Team Josh? Bears quarterback Josh McCown made the right plays, especially in the fourth quarter and didn’t throw an interception against the Green Bay Packers on Monday night at Lambeau Field. Jay Cutler says he will be healthy and will play against Detroit. That’s all fine and dandy, but I’ve seen enough interceptions and fumbles returned for touchdowns, courtesy of Cutler’s handiwork. He doesn’t need to rush back to work. Will Bears coach Marc Trestman start Cutler or Mc-

8SPORTS SHORTS Dolphins’ Martin to meet with NFL investigator DAVIE, Fla. – Miami Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin will meet late next week in Los Angeles with the NFL’s special investigator to discuss allegations in the team’s harassment scandal, a person familiar with the situation said Friday. The person confirmed the upcoming meeting to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the league and team haven’t announced the details of the investigation. Meeting with Martin will be Ted Wells, a senior partner in a New York law firm with experience in sports cases. Wells was appointed Wednesday by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to investigate possible misconduct in the Dolphins’ workplace and prepare a report that will be made public.

8INSIDE CROSS COUNTRY Athlete of the week Boys RYAN PITNER Crystal Lake Central, sr. Pitner won the IHSA Class 2A Belvidere Sectional Meet last Saturday in 15:09.09 to help the Tigers to third place as a team. Pitner ran right behind Dixon’s Simon Thorpe for most of the race, then made his move in the final 800 meters and won by 12 seconds. It was his first sectional title. Central will be running in the state meet Saturday at Detweiller Park. It’s the Tigers’ fourth consecutive trip to the state meet. Girls MAURA BEATTIE Woodstock, sr. Beattie won the Class 2A Belvidere Sectional last Saturday in 17:43.98, beating DeKalb’s Kelsey Schrader by 3.5 seconds. It was Beattie’s first sectional title and she led the entire race. Beattie will finish her career in the IHSA Cross Country State Meet this Saturday at Peoria’s Detweiller Park. Beattie has lost only one race this season and likely will be one of the top finishers in Class 2A.

Noteworthy Fast rookie: Prairie Ridge freshman Filip Pajak has turned in an impressive season for his first at the high school level and will run in the Class 2A boys race at Saturday’s state meet in Peoria. Pajak finished 11th to lead the Wolves, who will be competing as a team. “That was my goal to make it to state,” Pajak said. “I wasn’t expecting too much out of it. I kept that goal in mind every time I ran.” Wolves coach Judd Shutt knew Pajak was fast, but marvels still at his progress. “He could do the training with all the top runners, but usually that doesn’t translate to running ability because you have a young body who doesn’t put the speed in in the last 800 meters of the race,” Shutt said. “So he’s really surprised me. He makes up for it by mental toughness. He’s really proved that he does belong. He should have his eyes up there, this is a tough sectional. There’s no reason he can’t be setting a pretty high goal for what he can place at state.” Next generation: Marian Central freshman Abby Jones will run in the Class 1A girls race at the state meet Saturday. Jones is the daughter of former Hurricanes distance star Laura Witek Jones. Witek was a Class A All-State runner in 1990, 1991 and 1992, as well as a distance standout in track and field.

Big day for Beattie sisters, LZ boasts 35-4 record Wildcats in cross country • CL SOUTH Continued from page C1

ON CAMPUS Barry Bottino When Kayla Beattie stepped to the start line at the Pac-12 Championships cross country meet in Colorado last week, she had a confident thought. “I knew it was going to be a good day for the Wildcats,” said Beattie, a Woodstock graduate. Beattie, a sophomore for the University of Arizona’s Wildcats, already knew that her sister Elise’s team, the University of New Hampshire Wildcats, had won the America East Conference title earlier in the day. Kayla Beattie followed through by finishing fifth in the 6-kilometer race in 21:20 to lead Arizona – ranked No. 1 in the nation – to its first conference title in school history. “It was definitely an exciting weekend for us,” Kayla Beattie said. At the America East race at Binghamton (N.Y.) University, Elise Beattie, a senior who also graduated from Woodstock, placed 11th in 18:09.65 for UNH, which won the 5K conference title race after finishing second for the past three years. “We knew we had a decent chance of winning, but all the pieces had to go together,” Elise Beattie said. UNH had its top five runners finish between sixth and 12th place. “I was glad to be able to push my teammates and have my teammates push me,” Elise Beattie said. In her first season at Arizona after transferring from Iowa, Kayla Beattie finished in the top seven in every meet and won two individual titles this fall. “I’m happy,” said Beattie, who battled illness during her three semesters at Iowa. “When you’re happy, you perform your best. I feel really good, for the first time in two years.” Kayla Beattie said she has been diagnosed with “a couple of [gastrointestinal] conditions,” including Celiac disease, an immune reaction to eating gluten. “It’s a disease, but it can be fixed,” she said. “I eat a lot of natural, organic foods. I pack a lot of my own snacks and we call ahead to restaurants (on the road). The coaches

As a nursing major, she has had clinical rotations at a hospital off campus as part of her coursework since last winter. “You’re off campus and you’re on your feet a lot,” she said. “But this semester hasn’t been too bad for me.” The sisters have at least one more race remaining. Arizona will compete in the NCAA West Regional Nov. 15 in Sacramento, Calif., and New Hampshire races the same day at the Northeast Regional in New York City.

D-III website honors PR grad: Dubuque University senior quarterback Bryan Bradshaw was named to D3Football. com’s Team of the Week on Tuesday after passing for a school- and Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference-record 500 yards and four touchdowns in a 50-46 loss Nov. 2 to Simpson. Bradshaw, a Prairie Ridge grad, was 27 for 39 passing and finished with 513 yards of total offense. He threw TDs of 3, 13, 13 and 31 yards with no interceptions for the Spartans (4-4). For the season, Bradshaw leads the conference in passing yards a game (301.2) and passing TDs (24). Horizon hotshot: Wisconsin-Milwaukee freshman women’s soccer goalkeeper Paige Lincicum (Cary-Grove) was named Monday as the Horizon League’s Defensive Player of the Week. Lincicum made five saves Nov. 1 in a 1-0 victory against Oakland that clinched the regular-season conference title for the Panthers (8-8-1), who have won 14 league titles in a row. The victory against Oakland was Lincicum’s third shutout of the season.

Iowa soccer standout: CaryGrove grad Tommy Breen, a sophomore goalkeeper at Luther College, was named Monday as the Iowa Conference men’s soccer Defensive Player of the Week while helping the team to a share of the league title. In 1-0 victories last week against Wartburg and Central, Breen made a combined 10 saves. Against Central, he stopped two penalty shots. He has compiled five shutouts this season for the Norse (14-6) and a 0.81 goals-against average. Top Colonel: Marian Central grad Dena Ott, a junior libero for D-I Eastern Kentucky’s volleyball team, won the Ohio Valley Conference Defensive Player of the Week award on Monday. Ott had 50 combined digs in wins last week against Jacksonville State and Tennessee Tech. Ott led all players with 26 digs against JSU and 24 against TTU. Ott ranks third in the OVC this season with 4.77 digs per set for EKU (15-13). Petty paces Stars: Kelly Petty, a senior forward for D-III Dominican University’s women’s soccer team, was chosen for the All-Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference second team this month. A Marian Central grad, Petty led the Stars (3-12-1) with 11 goals, four assists and 26 points this season. Her 38 career goals is the third-highest total in school history.

The winner will face the winner of the Normal Supersectional between Normal and Benet in the state semifinals at 7:30 p.m. Friday. “The girls really declared [their goal] with a nice strong affirmation, and then after that it’s just been one step further, one step further,” Fontana said. “It’s all about taking steps.” Every moment of the season has been about living within the moment. Despite knowing what it wanted, South tried never to look past any opponent. Before games and even during timeouts, Fontana would ask the players what they were learning, what they could take from the match, how it was helping them reach the next step and what they could change so the experience had a greater impact. The Gators (36-3) certainly will need to apply what they’ve learned Saturday. The Bears (35-4) are a formidable opponent with five seniors who are just as determined as South to extend their season.

My nerves come out when I’m on the [starting] line, but when the gun goes off, my nerves are gone.”

Marian’s record misleading • MARIAN Continued from page C1 “I feel like we’re in one of the hardest conferences in the state, so a lot of times our record is deceiving,” Davis said. “The combination of that and playing [strong teams], it really hurts our record. So during postseason we’re like, surprise!” Senior outside hitter Frankie Taylor credits the Hurricanes coming together as a team over the course of the season as the biggest reason for their success. The players regularly send daily text messages to each other, offering words of encouragement without prompting from their coaches. “I’ve never been so close with a team,” Taylor said. “You can ask anybody on the team out of the 15 girls we have, it’s about working as a team. We all do it and it’s not an individual sport at all. Everyone has to be on and has to push. It’s not

a roller coaster anymore; it’s straight to the top.” Payton (26-11) last appeared in the state finals in 2010, finishing fourth in Class 3A. The Grizzlies, however, have won a sectional title in four of the past six seasons. Olivia Rozmus is one of Payton’s go-to hitters. She led the team with 13 kills in the sectional final win Thursday against Chicago Latin. A common opponent this season between the two teams is St. Ignatius. The Grizzlies lost to St. Ignatius, 2-0, while Marian won, 2-1. Asked if she thought at the beginning of the season Marian would reach this point of the playoffs, Watling said, “not at all.” “I knew we had talent, but because we are so young, I didn’t know if we would have the mental attitude and the confidence to put it all together by the time we got here,” Watling said. “They’ve been working hard and it’s been fantastic to see.”

rich is led by setter Kristen Walding, who is committed to Northeastern University (Mass.). Walding spreads the ball between hitters Mallory Parsons, Allie McIlwain, Mickenzie Andrews, Duquesne University-bound Sydney Glover and Kiley McPeek, who is headed to Cornell. South will counter with its own throng of weapons. Setter Cassy Sivesind can go to Troy University-bound Avalon Nero, Bowling Green recruit Nicole Slimko or Carly Nolan, who has not yet committed. Sara Mickow is also a significant threat, as well as Katy Hoenle and Emma Burkle. The Gators’ defense has been stout thanks to libero Hannah Wilson and defensive specialist Tori Falbo. “I think, with the group of girls we have, and the bond we all have, I think we knew we could (get here),” said Mickow after the Gators’ sectional title victory against Warren on Thursday. “I think we’ve become very mentally strong and, in the end, I do think our goal is attainable. We’re going to push really, really hard to get there.”

Fighting Illini face potent Hoosiers’ offense By STEVE GREENBERG Chicago Sun-Times Five things I don’t want to know yet about Illinois’ game at Indiana on Saturday but am afraid I already do: 1. To paint a picture of how explosive Indiana’s offense is, consider that the 2012 Hoosiers – who ranked second in the Big Ten in total offense – had 17 touchdown drives that took five or fewer plays to execute. This year’s offense has 27 such drives already. If


Michigan State rolls in opener No. 2 Michigan State 98, McNeese State 56: At East Lansing, Mich., Gary Harris flourished, as expected, scoring 15 of his 20 points in the first half and finishing with a career-high 10 rebounds to help No. 2 Michigan State beat McNeese State on Friday night in a tuneup for its next game against top-ranked Kentucky.

Indiana 100, Chicago State 72: At Bloomington, Ind., Jeremy Hollowell scored a career-high 16 points and had four blocks, and Noah Vonleh added 11 points, 14 rebounds and three blocks in his college debut, leading Indiana past outmanned Chicago State.

Purdue 77, Northern Kentucky 76: At West Lafayette, Ind., Ronnie Johnson had 18 points and five assists to lead Purdue to a victory over Northern Kentucky. Jay Simpson had 14 points and six rebounds and Errick Peck had 11 points and nine rebounds for the Boilermakers (1-0), who never found a way to pull away.

Michigan 69, UMass-Lowell 42: At Ann Arbor, Mich., the Wolverines raised their Final Four banner from last season to the rafters Friday night, then dispatched Division I newcomer UMass-Lowell behind 15 points from Glenn Robinson III. Minnesota 81, Lehigh 62: At Minneapolis, Minn., Richard Pitino earned his first victory as Minnesota’s coach Friday night, a win over Lehigh behind 20 points from newcomer Joey King. Andre Hollins added 18 for the Gophers.

No. 20 Wisconsin 86, St. John’s 75: At Sioux Falls, S.D., despite relying on some new faces and playing in a strange location, No. 20 Wisconsin continued its mastery in season openers, beating St. John’s.

No. 14 VCU 96, Illinois State 58: At Richmond, Va., transfer Terrance Shannon and Treveon Graham led VCU with 14 points each, Juvonte Reddic had 13 and eight rebounds and the Rams used a 33-7 first-half run to take command in the season opener for both teams.

Arkansas 99, Southern Illinois-Edwardsville 65: At Fayetteville, Ark., Anthlon Bell had 18 points and Michael Qualls added 16 as five players finished in double figures in a season-opening win for Arkansas over Southern Illinois-Edwardsville.

Nebraska Omaha 68, Northern Illinois 66: At DeKalb, Ill., CJ Carter scored on a 3-point play Friday night to help Omaha take the lead in the final seconds and hold on to a narrow victory over Northern Illinois.

Nebraska 79, Florida Gulf Coast 55: At Lincoln, Neb., Shavon Shields scored 28 points, Terran Petteway added 17 and Nebraska celebrated the opening of the new Pinnacle Bank Arena with a victory over Florida Gulf Coast on Friday night.

Iowa 82, UNC-Wilmington 39: At Iowa City, Iowa, Sophomore Jarrod Uthoff had 14 points and four blocks in his Iowa debut and the Hawkeyes rolled past UNC-Wilmington Friday in its season opener.

the Hoosiers get that number to 30 against Illinois, they’ll have their second Big Ten victory. 2. Quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase must average 357 total yards over the final four games to break Juice Williams’ Illinois career record of 10,594. Care to guess how many times the senior has gone for at least 357 this season? Try just once, in the opener against Southern Illinois. (He had 356 total yards last

weekend at Penn State.) Indiana, though, is an opportunity for Scheelhaase to throw – and run – for a ton of yards. We’ll throw caution to the wind and say he amasses close to 400 against the Hoosiers. 3. Somehow, Indiana has an even worse rushing defense than Illinois, ranking 114th nationally in that category (allowing 224.1 yards per game) to the Illini’s 113th (223.1). And yet watch as the Hoo-

siers work much harder than the Illini to establish their run game. IU’s Tevin Coleman and Stephen Houston are weapons, but this is more about Illini offensive coordinator Bill Cubit’s refusal to believe in his own ground attack. Cubit should look to get Josh Ferguson and even Donovonn Young going early, especially given Indiana’s quick-strike offense, but will he? Don’t bet on it. 4. Illinois’ play in the secondary last week really

wasn’t bad at all – and that’s saying something for a unit that had done almost nothing all season to help the cause. Now comes a massive test in the form of three Hoosiers wideouts – Shane Wynn, Cody Latimer and Kofi Hughes – who are legitimate home run hitters. Beckman believes his group of young cornerbacks is beginning to come around, but this matchup will set them back a ways. 5. In four games this sea-

son, Indiana has kept its quarterbacks clean, not allowing a single sack. The Hoosiers are allowing one sack per 29 pass attempts, a very respectable number. Given the Illini’s blatant inability to rush the passer, this swings all the analysis in favor of the home team. Another long afternoon for Tim Banks’ defense.

Irish will try to find a way again versus Pitt By WILL GRAVES


The Associated Press PITTSBURGH – The kick went up, and Notre Dame tackle Zack Martin couldn’t look. Instead, Martin just listened to the crowd to learn whether the 33-yard field goal attempt by Pittsburgh’s Kevin Harper in the second overtime last October would end the Fighting Irish’s chance at an undefeated season. When the stadium roared, Martin relaxed. So did his teammates. Notre Dame recovered to win 29-26 in the third overtime, preserving its perfect record on its way to a spot in the Bowl Championship Series title game. “We kind of stole one there,” Martin said. A year later, and things haven’t changed much. Though 24th-ranked Notre Dame (7-2) is out of the national title mix, if the Irish can win out, they’re in the hunt for a BCS bowl bid. The Panthers (4-4) meanwhile, continue to search for an identity in coach Paul Chryst’s second season. Close games have been the norm over the last five meetings. All five have been decided by six points or less, including two in overtime. That would seem to favor the Irish, who have a way of finding a way under coach Brian Kelly. Notre Dame has won 10 straight games decided by a touchdown or less, including a 38-34 escape against Navy last week. It wasn’t dominant, to be sure, but that hardly matters to Kelly. “There is a lot of pressure at Notre Dame, a lot of scrutiny,” Kelly said. “There were nine lead changes in that game against Navy. They were down in the fourth quarter. They had to come

Notre Dame QB Tommy Rees has thrown seven touchdowns over his last two games, benefiting from newfound balance in the offense. The Irish ran for 264 yards against Navy, including 140 yards and the game-winning touchdown by freshman Tarean Folston. If Folston can find some consistency, Rees will have more freedom to go to work. “We found a pretty good rhythm offensively over the last few weeks,” Kelly said. “We want to build on that.”

“Personally I don’t like Notre Dame at all. It’s going to make me play harder ... I just think they’re really cocky and their coaches are really cocky so I just don’t like that.” J.P. Holtz, Pitt sophomore tight end back in the fourth quarter and they had to hold the lead. Those kids can take that with them because that takes a lot to do those things.” Five things to look for as the Irish look to keep rolling while the Panthers look for the first signature win of Chryst’s tenure.

DOMINANT DONALD Pitt defensive tackle Aaron Donald put together a stat line for the ages in a 2110 loss to Georgia Tech last week. The senior recorded 11 tackles, six tackles for loss, two forced fumbles and a sack. He is the heart of a de-

fense that has made significant strides over the last six weeks, even if Pitt’s overall play hasn’t followed suit. “He will be somebody that we will have to game plan and find a way to slow down,” Kelly said. “He’s in the backfield, very active. I think for him, you know, you have a powerful guy, but he’s also extremely quick at the point of attack.” Donald stressed he’s a “different person” when he’s on the field. If Pitt is going to pull off the upset, he needs to be a difference maker.

DISAPPEARING OFFENSE The Panthers appeared

to have things figured out when they lit up Duke for 58 points back on Sept. 21. Pitt has managed just 54 points combined in their last four games against FBS opponents. Quarterback Tom Savage has spent most of the season under heavy duress. The 29 sacks he’s endured are the fifth-most in the nation. The lack of a consistent running game hasn’t helped. Pitt was held to minus-5 yards last week against the Yellow Jackets. “These are correctable things,” Chryst said. “We’ve got to find a way to get it right.”

Pitt sophomore tight end J.P. Holtz was recruited by the Irish and even made a visit to Notre Dame. Ultimately, however, he settled on Pitt. Scoring a touchdown in last year’s loss at Notre Dame Stadium was sweet, though Holtz is eager for his team to take the next step and drop the Irish down a peg. “Personally I don’t like Notre Dame at all,” Holtz said. “It’s going to make me play harder ... I just think they’re really cocky and their coaches are really cocky so I just don’t like that.”

BACK TO NORMAL Pitt and Notre Dame each spent their previous two games dealing with the unconventional triple-option offense. Both teams faced Navy while the Panthers faced Georgia Tech and the Irish played Air Force. In a way, facing something a bit more familiar will be a relief. “I’m ready to get back to a regular offense,” defensive end Stephon Tuitt said. And with good reason. The last time Notre Dame played a traditional attack, it held USC scoreless in the second half of a 14-10 win.


Illinois opens season with win over Alabama State Champaign native Rayvonte Rice has 22 points, nine rebounds in debut for Illini By DAVID MERCER The Associated Press CHAMPAIGN, Ill. – Rayvonte Rice scored 22 points and had nine rebounds in his debut to lead Illinois to a season-opening 80-63 win over Alabama State on Friday. Rice is a Champaign native but spent two seasons at Drake before transferring to Illinois (1-0). The hometown kid made the most of his chance Friday. He scored seven points over a three-minute span early in the second half to push Illinois’ lead to a commanding 54-37. Nnanna Egwu had a double-double for Illinois with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Joseph Bertrand scored 14 and had eight boards. Jamel Waters led Alabama State (0-1) with 27 points. He was 5-of-6 from 3-point range. Rice was never seriously recruited by Illinois. So he went to Drake before head coach John Groce, in his first season, lured him back. Rice had to sit out a season under NCAA transfer rules, a

year Groce has said the stocky guard put to good use, taking off fat and adding muscle. On Friday, Rice looked like the experienced, floor-savvy guard the very young Illini will need. Over a three-minute span early in the second half he scored seven points, five of them from the free-throw line, to push Illinois’ lead to 54-37 with 14:20 to play. Not long after knocking down the last of those free throws, Rice headed to the bench for a breather and heard a deserved round of applause from his hometown crowd. But he was quickly back on the court, earning a pair of free throws that he sank with 12:04 to play to put the Illini up by 21, 58-37. It was their biggest lead of the night to the point. Rice was 9-for-10 from the free-throw line, and Illinois as a team went 22-for-30, 73.3 percent. The Illini will be one of the smaller teams in the Big Ten, relying on a roster heavy on guards. But Friday they

looked like a collection of big men against the Hornets. Alabama State had only one player taller than 6-7 on its roster, 6-10 sophomore Devonte Neal, and he didn’t play. That size edge translated to 34 points in the paint for Illinois. The Hornets had 16 inside. And Illinois had a major edge on the boards, outrebounding Alabama State 52-28. The Illini used strong defensive rebounding to overcome cold shooting early, turning in a pair of 7-0 runs that led to a solid 40-26 lead by halftime. The Illini hit 15 of their 39 first-half shots – 38.5 percent – but grabbed 18 defensive boards in the first 20 minutes, keeping the Hornets from scoring a single second-chance point in the first 20 minutes. The first of those 7-0 runs put Illinois up 22-14. Bertrand capped it with a put-back off a missed Egwu free throw with 9:12 left in the half. The Illini host Jacksonville State on Sunday. The Hornets will travel across Illinois to face Bradley.

Jazz just what Bulls needed By JOE COWLEY Chicago Sun-Times CHICAGO – Joakim Noah was smirking before the question posed to him was even finished. Of course the center had heard the comments from Pacers forward Paul George. The entire Bulls locker room had. “We want to step away from that shadow as the ‘little brothers’ of this division,” George told NBA. com after the 97-80 Indiana win Wednesday night. “[The Bulls’] success is the Michael Jordan era. This is a new age, this is a new team. It’s ours till they take it.” Hard to argue considering Indiana is now 6-0. But getting Utah on Friday night was at least a good place for the Bulls to start. Thanks to Luol Deng falling just an assist short of a triple-double, the Bulls improved to 2-3 with the 97-73 win over the winless Jazz (06). “It’s all good,” Noah said of George’s comment. “It’s Game 5 of the season, man. It’s a long journey. We’ll see those guys again.” Next week, as a matter of fact. But looking ahead is the last thing this Bulls team can do. Sure it was only Utah, but it was the first complete game the starters have really had this season, as Derrick Rose, Noah, Deng and Carlos Boozer each scored in double-digits, led by Deng’s 19 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists, as well as five steals. Deng had a chance to record

On one side there’s, ‘It took him 10 years to get it.’ The other side is, man I’ve been close many times, so that’s the other side. But I’m really not worried about it at all.’’ He shouldn’t be. There’s been enough for this team to be con-

cerned about through the first two weeks of the regular season. The energy on defense had been low, the turnovers high, and the play of Rose erratic. Nothing a game against Utah couldn’t cure, especially in an opening quarter in which the Bulls came out and jumped up 30-18 after the first 12 minutes. “I thought the first quarter was terrific,” Thibodeau said. “I thought that set the tone for the game. Our starters made sure that the group functioned well together, and that was a big plus for us.” Deng was a big reason, as he came out and scored seven points with five assists in that first quarter. “He was terrific,” Thibodeau said. “I thought there was a lot of unselfish play, guys making the extra pass. I thought the screening was a lot better, hitting the open man, running the floor, great effort defensively, and that’s what it’s going to take.” As for Rose, while he only had 12 points, he did go 5 for 5 from the free throw line, as well as hand out five assists. “We’ll take any win,’’ Rose said. “It feels good that we were just executing our offense and getting in a groove. We haven’t had a groove in any of our games that we played in before [Friday], but we can’t get hyped because we won just one game.’’ • Joe Cowley is a Chicago Sun-

COLEMAN Programs offered by Family Alliance give seniors with Alzheimer’s a place to go during the day, giving their caregivers the ability to stay in the workforce, the nonprofit’s director said. Government subsidies for early childhood centers such as the Hearthstone Early Learning Center require parents to be working or attending school, said Terry Egan, Hearthstone Communities’ chief executive officer and president. The Home of the Sparrow estimates that over 90 percent of the women who graduate from its programming are successful in staying employed and maintaining housing, Executive Director John Jones said. The people the Pioneer Center for Human Services helps might be recipients of welfare, not have jobs and not pay taxes, but the center has a high success rate in breaking that cycle, president and CEO Patrick Maynard said. These services give nonprofits a larger impact than just the number of employees they have and the dollars they spend, their top officials said. A recent report released by Donors Forum, a nonprofit association, highlighted the economic footprint left by Illinois nonprofits. Nonprofits employ more than 523,000 people in Illinois with a combined payroll of $19.7 billion, according to the report. That’s nearly 9 percent of the state’s workers, more than construction, transportation and real estate combined. In McHenry County, nonprofits employ 5,776 people, or about 3.64

USDA: Corn harvest hits record 13.9B bushels DES MOINES, Iowa – This year’s corn crop has soared to a new national record, breaking expectations in many states that received too much rain early on and a summer dry spell that brought back drought concerns. In its first crop supply and demand report since the partial government shutdown, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said Friday it expects 13.99 billion bushels of corn, more than the September forecast of 13.8 billion bushels.

Hearthstone expands independent living facilities By BRETT ROWLAND WOODSTOCK – Hearthstone Communities continues to grow its footprint in McHenry County. The Woodstock-based nonprofit recently bought a bank-owned independent living development with 22 duplexes and lots for two more units to expand its independent living programs. In January, Hearthstone partnered with Centegra Health System to manage a 30bed sub-acute rehabilitation unit called Hearthstone at Centegra. The off-campus ventures “fit our goals and strategic plans,” said Terry Egan, Hearthstone president and CEO. It took more than year for Hearthstone to buy the former Point In Time independent living development in Woodstock. The development, which includes 22 duplexes built in 2005-06 and

two vacant lots, went into foreclosure and was taken over by the bank. Hearthstone bought it from the bank. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Six of the units at what has been renamed Hearthstone at Serenity Creek have never been occupied. Hearthstone is hosting an open house later this month for the vacant units. The entrance fee for units with a finished basement is $190,000. It’s $175,000 for units with unfinished basements. However, prices could increase next year, said Beth Burg, senior housing counselor with Hearthstone Communities. Residents also pay a $500 monthly maintenance fee, which covers everything from lawn care to changing light bulbs. When the unit is vacated, 80 percent the entrance fee is returned, Burg said.

Tweet prompts apology

Northwest Herald /

What makes for a successful business? What criteria does a business have to meet in order for it to be successful? What differentiates successful business ventures from the large percentage of startups that fail? I truly believe that it comes down to passion – a double-edged quality. Too often passionate entrepreneurs delve headfirst into a venture before thinking it through. Before taking that plunge, clarify your reasons and your goals. Knowing why you’re doing this and having a clear picture of what you hope to achieve is just a starting point. Understand your entrepreneurial personality. Focus on ways to maximize your skills, assets, resources and relationships. To turn your passion into profits, emphasize the market. Focus on your business relative to the customers you serve by knowing your markets. Understanding the needs and prefer-

Home Depot acts after racist content goes out The ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK – Home improvement retailer Home Depot Inc. on Thursday apologized for a tweet that showed a picture of two African-American drummers with a person in a gorilla mask in between them and asked: “Which drummer is not like the others?” The tweet, from Home Depot’s official Twitter account, @HomeDepot, was part of a “College Gameday” college football promotion on ESPN. It was quickly pulled, but not before people took screen shots of it and it was widely circulated on social media. NBC and CNBC, among others, reported on the Tweet. Home Depot said Friday that it has fired the person and outside agency that was responsible for the tweet, but did not disclose their names. “We have zero tolerance for anything so stupid and offensive,” said Stephen Holmes, spokesman for the Atlanta-based company. Holmes said the company is “closely” reviewing its social media procedures to determine “how this could have happened, and how to ensure it never happens again.” Allen Adamson, managing director of branding firm Landor Associates, said the tweet is “the worst possible message Home Depot can send out ... even if it gets attributed to stupidity.” “In a Twitter world where everyone can see everything instantly I think you’ll see more rather than less of this because people tweet before they think,” Adamson said. Home Depot is not the first company to get in trouble for offensive tweets.

CHAMBER NEWS Shari Gray ences of your customers enables you to prioritize your customer’s experience and perception of value. Passionate entrepreneurs tend to have rose-colored plans and overestimate beginning sales and underestimate costs. Write a business plan that makes financial sense for your current needs and future goals of your business. It is imperative you have a clear picture of how your business will come together in a way that is profitable over time. Don’t see what you want to see and rely on “feeling good” about the direction your business is going in as your only measure of success. Oftentimes the reason most

startups fail is because they run out of money and time. There are many sources that offer free advice about business plans, financing, selling and marketing. You can contact the U.S. Small Business Administration as well as the Service Corps of Retired Executives. Both of these organizations are a wealth of information for startup businesses and existing businesses. Your local Chamber of Commerce also provides assistance and offers networking opportunities with other like-minded businesspeople.

SAC Capital pleads guilty in N.Y. in $1.8 billion fraud case deal billionaire Steven A. Cohen had reached the deal that also required it to shut down its operations to outside investors. But Judge Laura Taylor Swain did not immediately accept the plea, saying she’d wait until a probation report

Growth comes despite effects of U.S. downturn For-profit businesses also are taking advantage of governments’ emphasis on the bottom line, moving into areas that are traditionally the territory of nonprofits, Maynard said. But as the government shrinks its role in various areas, Larson expects nonprofits to have to play a bigger role, stepping up to provide the cut services. She’s optimistic that nonprofits will continue to play a “tremendous role” in health care and social services and that donations and volunteer dollars will continue to support the growing missions. Nonprofits also have become a lot more sophisticated at addresssing needs and raising revenue, Jones said. “A lot more partnering and relations are being developed between agencies and groups,” Eesley said, adding that larger health systems are combining to address capital needs and excess capacity.

which will create six positions to start, Executive Director Kim Larson said. It employs 50 people, according to submitted data. Those employees go out, buy groceries and pay their bills, multiplying a nonprofit’s effect as an employer, Maynard said. The growth is despite the challenges raised by the 2008 economic downturn, which led to a dropoff in charitable giving (it’s been on the rise for the past three, hitting 2007 levels in 2012) and cuts or delayed payments from the state and federal government. The impact hasn’t been the same for all nonprofits. The senior living side of Hearthstone Communities was hit with some cuts, but the Early Learning Center hasn’t really been affected at all, Egan said. Nonprofit leaders are mixed in their expectations for the future and how these changes will play out.

• NONPROFITS Continued from page E1 percent of the county’s workers in 2010, according to data compiled by Donors Forum. About two-thirds of those workers are employed in the education, health care and social assistance sectors. Those numbers don’t surprise Centegra Health System CEO and president Mike Eesley. With 3,620 employees, Centegra is the county’s largest employer, according to 2013 numbers submitted to the Northwest Herald. The next closet is Walmart with 2,400. Centegra is also set to add another location in Huntley, which will add an additional 1,000 positions and employ 800 people during the construction, Eesley said. Centegra isn’t the only organization looking to expand. Woodstock-based Family Alliance is adding another location, its second, in Huntley,

on behalf of SAC Capital LP, SAC Capital Advisors LLC, CR Intrinsic Investors LLC and Sigma Capital Management LLC. In pleading guilty, Nussbaum said SAC Capital wanted to “express our deep remorse” for its crimes.

• HEARTHSTONE Continued from page E1 “Part of the goal was to expand our independent living as a feeder for our assisted-living program,” Egan said. Hearthstone’s continuing care retirement community includes independent living facilities and assisted living apartments at its 15-acre main campus near Routes 47 and 120 in Woodstock. It also has Medicare-certified rehabilitation programs and offers Alzheimer’s disease and dementia care and skilled nursing care. At Serenity Creek, Hearthstone officials have discussed adding social activities, transportation and other services on a voluntary basis to residents, Burg said. For many residents, the attraction to independent living programs such as Serenity Creek is that maintenance is

They don’t even need to worry about changing the light bulbs.” Hearthstone also is adding to its independent living options at its main campus, building units and garden homes at lower price points than Serenity Creek, Egan said.

After the opener bids one of a suit and the next player makes a takeout double, if the responder redoubles, it shows at least 10 high-card points and often a desire to try to penalize the opponents. So, if fourth hand (the advancer) bids a suit, the opener (unless he can double with length there) typically passes to give his partner a chance to double. In contrast, what does it mean if the opener bids immediately, in front of his partner? The answer is that the opener has a minimum or subminimum opening bid with offensive, not defensive, values. An example is the North hand in the diagram. He has only 11 high-card points and a hand that is built for declarer play, not defense. South, a tad disappointed, signs off in three no-trump. West leads the heart three, and East puts in the eight. After winning with his king, how should declarer proceed? South starts with only ive top tricks: one spade, two hearts and two diamonds. However, he can hope to win at least six diamond tricks, if not seven. But he must be careful not to play a diamond

to dummy’s jack. Then he would fall foul of the foul 4-0 split. Instead, declarer must inesse dummy’s nine on the irst round. Here, he ends with 11 tricks: one spade, two hearts, seven diamonds and one club. But even if East could take the irst diamond trick, the contract would be safe. Finally, note that many experts play an immediate jump rebid by opener also indicates a bare 11 or 12 points, with a hand having even more winners and scant defensive values.

TODAY - Choose events that broaden your outlook or have the potential to bring you in contact with creative people. Inspiration will help you use your assets and qualities more effectively. A close relationship will improve your life. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Avoid any sort of emotional entanglement that will cause others to question you. Holding on to what you have will improve your life and brighten your future. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Helping others is fine, as long as your motives are genuine and you don’t let anyone take advantage of you. Don’t expect anything in return, and you won’t be disappointed. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Getting together with people who share your concerns will bring good results. A crucial relationship will develop that will alter your personal life and overall direction. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Emotional issues will surface, forcing you to deal with a problem that you’ve been putting off. Face your dilemmas with honesty and integrity, and you will come out on top. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Keep your money matters a secret. You’ll need to listen carefully to make a decision that can influence a financial or legal concern. Base your ultimate choice on your gut feeling and the facts at hand. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Restlessness should not be allowed to dictate your words or actions. You are likely to make a costly mistake. Stay calm and don’t go overboard in any aspect of your life. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Don’t forget to play today. Downtime will help you rejuvenate your spirits and will give you a better view of what you may need to do to improve an important relationship. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Speak from the heart and ask questions that will give you a better idea of what’s expected of you. Caution must be taken if you want to avoid exhaustion or minor injury. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You’ll be a good influence on others if you share your ideas, thoughts and intentions. Keep a close watch on an unpredictable situation, as guidance will be required. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Proceed with caution. Involving yourself in an emotional discussion will not likely end in your favor. Listen carefully and retreat until you have a rock-solid perspective and plan. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Make your move and do it with finesse. You will attract positive attention and meet people who are heading in a similar direction as you. Romance is in the stars. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Look over your longterm plans and consider your options regarding work and money. Putting a budget in place by cutting your overhead will help ease stress.

Harvard dominates King in 2nd round By JOE STEVENSON HARVARD – Harvard’s players were almost as amazed as they were thrilled about what transpired against Chicago King on Friday night. Some struggled for words to describe the Class 4A second-round playoff game that quickly became a runaway. “I didn’t know what to think of it, actually. … There’s really not a word to describe it, actually,” Hornets defensive end Zach Martin said. “I can’t explain it,” nose tackle Adam

At • Video highlights in “The Fastest Four Minutes” from the Harvard’s 56-16 victory over King. Freimund said. “It was pretty special. It doesn’t happen very often in a game. It was nice.” Harvard scored on three of its first four plays, capitalized on three King fumbles and had a 35-point lead only 6:30 into the game at Dan Horne Field. Harvard coach Tim Haak played his sec-

ond-team offense the entire second half as the Hornets rolled to a 56-16 victory. No. 2-seeded Harvard (11-0) set the school record for victories and will face either No. 6 Rockford Lutheran (9-1) or No. 14 Rochelle (6-4) in next week’s quarterfinals. Those teams play at 1 p.m. Saturday in their second-round game. Running back Christian Kramer raced around left end for 58 yards on Harvard’s first play. King quarterback Nate Powell missed a handoff with running back Lance Robinson and Martin pounced on it.

Northwest Herald /

Former Hornets stand behind Haak HARVARD – Fielding Kalas remembered the bus ride that ticked off his head coach. The year was 1999, and Kalas was a confident offensive lineman for the Harvard Hornets. He and his teammates were on the way to play Stillman Valley, a powerhouse team with a prized college recruit named Pat Babcock. “On the way in, I had my headphones on, and I was talking smack about the other team, and I was saying it out loud because my headphones were on so high,” Kalas said Friday as he watched his alma mater play Chicago King. “And Coach Haak sat me for the first quarter.” Message sent. Message received. “He goes, ‘You ready to go in now?’ ” Kalas said. “I remember pancaking Pat Babcock on the first play. He goes, ‘That’s how you get your head screwed on straight.’ ” These days, Kalas tells the story with a smile. It was easy to find smiles Friday among Tim Haak’s former players. In front of a packed crowd at Dan Horne Field, the Hornets destroyed Chicago King, 56-16, to advance to the IHSA Class 4A quarterfinals. The win pushed Harvard to 11-0, setting a

VIEWS Tom Musick single-season record for victories in Haak’s 29th and final season as head coach. During the game, Haak focused on the players in front of him. All the while, he knew that former players stood behind him, representing each of the decades under his leadership. Matt Streit stood along the fence in front of the bleachers, where he was surrounded by several of his former teammates from the Class of 2008. Streit was part of the last Hornets team that reached the quarterfinals, and he has not missed a home game this season. What made Haak a great coach? “He made me a football player,” said Streit, whose father, Todd, serves as the Hornets’ defensive coordinator. “I went on to play [at Elmhurst College], but I owe most of my career to him and his coaching staff. “He pushes you. He expects you to give 100 percent effort all of the time, and it reflects on the program. You can see how the kids enjoy it, too. You can see how much effort they give. They

respect him, and they give him 100 percent effort.” Meanwhile, Haak’s former players give 100 percent support. Earlier this season, former Harvard quarterback Mike Leyden caught a flight from Florida to see the Hornets play. That’s just one of many examples of the bond that continues long after the final down, the final whistle, the final post-game walk out of the locker room. “It’s always been and always will be our extended family,” said Haak, who has received wedding invitations and baby announcements from his former players. “They come to watch. They support this group. They want them to do well. That’s always rewarding. “Our guys know they’re there. They come on the road. They come here at home. My son [Shane] drove from Madison. He was on the back-to-back quarterfinal team in ’06 and ’07. “Those guys come back from the ’80s, they fly in from Florida. I’m telling you, they are loyal. There’s nobody more loyal than some of our former football players.” Another one of those players is Tyler Streit, Matt Streit’s uncle and part of the class of 1991. Tyler Streit was part of Harvard’s

first team to reach the quarterfinals. He played offensive and defensive line for Haak, who was highly intense and highly intelligent. Little has changed, Streit said with a smile, other than Haak mellowing a bit. “I think every Friday night, our game plan is better than the other team’s,” Streit said. “So if we lack a little bit of physical ability that the other team has got, we make up for it.” And the Hornets win. No wonder Haak’s players keep coming back. “He was kind of like Mr. Miyagi,” Kalas said. “He would teach you one thing about the game that would reflect in life about communication and preparation and working hard and showing up on time, all of those things. “That’s why people come back here who have gone on with their lives. We all come back to support what he believes in and what he teaches us. He teaches you how to be a man – not only how to be a football player, but how to be a man.” • Northwest Herald sports columnist Tom Musick can be reached at and on Twitter @tcmusick.

King done in by early mistakes • HARVARD Continued from page 1 Extra Running back Jose Mejia ran for 7 yards, then Kramer scored from 19. The dizzying pace continued when King fumbled on its third play in the next drive and Freimund recovered. Quarterback Peyton Schneider hit Justin Nolen for a 30-yard score. Freimund recovered another fumble and Harvard took over on the 15, then scored in four plays. “It’s unexpected at this point of the season, but we worked for it and we got the results,” said Nolen, who caught a 42-yard scoring strike from Schneider with 5:30 remaining in the first quarter. By the time King’s band arrived late in the first quarter, the No. 7 Jaguars (8-3) were done. “Everything that could go wrong did go wrong for us,” King coach Lonnie Williams said. “Three minutes into the game we were down, 21-0, and the game was over. They beat us in the line, they beat us everywhere. They were a better team than us. I give them all the credit. We were honored to be here.” It was King’s first trip to the second round, and Williams said the Jaguars, who usually play on synthetic turf fields, had the wrong footwear for a slick, muddy field. Harvard did not give King any chance to utilize its speed on offense or defense. When the Jaguars did score in the second half, the touchdowns came against the Hornets’ second-team defense. “I thought the offensive line would take care of things, but the defense getting the ball and we scored right off that was big,” Haak said. “I was pleased with those things early on and pleased we could get our No. 2s in. Our kids were consistent and ready to play.” Nolen, who also intercepted a pass from Powell and returned it 48 yards for a touchdown, credited the coaches for their scouting report. “We did whatever the coaches told us to,” he said. “We prepared and all week we were scheming and trying to stop their quarterback from scrambling, trying to get a picket fence up back there.” The Jaguars managed only 78 yards at halftime, 38 of which came on a Powell scramble. “We just read an article where their coach feels their quarterback is a D-I kid and thinks he can play on Sundays,” Haak said. “Our kids did a great job against him. We put some things in. I say this a lot, but our offensive line coach Dennis Eisele and defensive coordinator Todd Streit do a great job of scheming. Our kids were really well-prepared.”

Lathan Goumas –

With Chicago King’s Christian Mallengen in pursuit, Harvard’s Ben Platt runs the ball in for a touchdown during a Class 4A playoff game Friday in Harvard. Harvard won, 56-16.

Harvard shows depth of offense By ANDREW HANSEN HARVARD – When Harvard lost running back Christian Kramer in Week 3 to a shoulder injury, it looked like a huge blow to the Hornets’ offense. Kramer was leading the area in rushing at the time, coming off a 200-yard performance, and was the focal point of Harvard’s offense. The Hornets, though, took it as a challenge, and used Kramer’s absence to develop depth in their offense that is now paying off in the playoffs, including in Friday night’s 56-16 win over King. “We’ve had the same philosophy throughout, we just improved every week,” receiver Justin Nolen said. “We’re just doing what we want to do: run the ball hard, play-action, and work with what the offense gives us.” Fullback Jose Mejia and running back Ben Platt helped fill the void in the backfield, with quarterback

Peyton Schneider and Nolen used more. Now the Hornets’ offense is more than one player, with Mejia’s punishing inside runs, Platt coming out of the backfield for passes, and Schneider and Nolen perfecting their play-action passes to help complement Kramer’s outside runs. Kramer scored on the first play of the game, taking a 58-yard run off tackle, and Schneider and Nolen hooked up for 30- and 42-yard touchdowns in the second quarter. Kramer finished with 136 yards on seven carries and Mejia had 40 yards on eight carries in two quarters. Platt added 61 yards on six carries. Harvard coach Tim Haak said it was the improvement of players such as Mejia, wide receiver/defensive back Fernando Carrera and Schneider that have really made the difference this season. “We knew coming in, for us to play at the level we’re playing, we’re going to have to have kids like Jose,” Haak said. “We knew Christian was going to be there, but

Peyton has improved so much.. A lot of kids from last year have really elevated their play.” One constant for the Hornets has been their offensive line of tackles Adam Freimund and Anthony Milanko, guards Dakota Trebes and Juan Carbajal, and center Kyle Peterson. The group helped pave the way for 282 yards on the ground. Trebes said the line takes being the tone setter for the offense seriously. “You are bascially the heart of the offense,” Trebes said. “You have to get going or you don’t have anything.” After starting as a sophomore last season, Schneider said he is far more comfortable leading the offense this season, finishing 6 for 8 for 93 yards. Schneider said his arm strength has improved, and he has more trust in his line and receivers. “Last year, it was new for me. Making the reads was a lot different,” Schneider said. “Having that experience was a huge help.”

Which teams will be moving on to quarterfinals? TAKE 2

The IHSA football playoffs continue into the second round with local entries CaryGrove, Prairie Ridge and Marian Central looking to extend their respective seasons with victories Saturday. Sports reporters Joe Stevenson and Jeff Arnold discuss. Stevenson: We’ve been a little spoiled in recent years here with the Fox Valley Conference’s football success. Cary-Grove won Class 6A in 2009, Prairie Ridge won it in 2011 and C-G was runner-up again the next year. The first round was rough on the FVC, which was 2-5, but the traditional playoff heavyweights, C-G and Prairie Ridge, survived. We had to make the three-hour drive to Champaign in the past, but the state championships are in DeKalb this year. Can any of these three get us there? Arnold: I’ve only been here

Jeff Arnold and Joe Stevenson face off a little more than a year, but the thing I’ve quickly learned is that the Trojans have a solid system in place that’s built for the long run. I look back to the start of the season when C-G had those two monster games back-to-back against Lake Zurich and Wheaton North and it’s almost like the Trojans got a head start on the playoffs. Now, they seem to be on a roll and I wouldn’t be surprised if they beat Boylan, setting up a potential state quarterfinal meeting with Prairie Ridge next week. Am I reading the situation correctly or am I being overly optimistic here?

Stevenson: I don’t think you’re overly optimistic at all. Guilford coach Mel Gilfillan saw C-G’s speed firsthand last week and thinks it’s a great matchup. He’s the only coach who has seen both this season. It will be a tough task – Boylan’s 49-1 since the 2010 season – but I think the Trojans can pull off an upset. What about Prairie Ridge? The offense did not blow up last week, but the defense came up big. Arnold: The playoffs seem to be all about momentum and carrying things over from the week before. The Wolves have now done that for four straight weeks. The good

news for the Wolves is that quarterback Brett Covalt is back. I’m not taking anything away from Luke Annen, who really took charge of the offense against Lakes. I think the biggest benefit for Prairie Ridge is that Marmion Academy has spent the week trying to figure out how to stop the Wolves’ triple option, which seems to be running as fast and as efficiently as it has all year. Speaking of tall orders, how about the one Marian Central has in once again having to deal with Montini? Stevenson: Montini is so good. I really thought it was Marian’s turn last year, especially after the convincing regular-season victory, but Montini did it again. The Hurricanes should be confident they can score, and they played them tough in a 40-35 loss in Week 7. Marian’s hoping for a little role reversal

from the previous two seasons – lose in the regular season, win in the playoffs. It will take their defense’s best effort. Arnold: OK, we’ve looked at all the positives. Is there a team left you think is susceptible and could be looking at the end of the road today? Stevenson: They’re all underdogs, but I like Prairie Ridge’s chances the best because Marmion’s a little beat up and the Wolves are hot. C-G and Marian each are facing two of the state’s best in the past few years. I like C-G’s chances better than Marian’s, just because Montini is such a great program. Arnold: That’s the thing I love about playoff football. You never know what you’re going to see and I think in all three of today’s games, I think we could be in for just about anything. Should make for an interesting day.

NORTHWEST HERALD FOOTBALL GAME OF THE WEEK No. 5 Marmion Academy (8-2) at No. 13 Prairie Ridge (6-4), 1 p.m. Saturday’s Lester Johnson breaks down the game: Marmion scouting report Potent offense: Marmion had 456 total yards against Fenton last week, 308 of those on the ground. The Cadets had their way against an overmatched Fenton team in a 39-0 win. They averaged 28.3 points a game for the season. The Cadets will spread the field and give the Wolves some looks they don’t see as much in the FVC. Marmion hopes to get starting TB Jordan Glasgow back after missing last week’s game with a sprained ankle. RB Mike Montalbano and WR Enzo Olabi also are banged up. Junior RB Sean Campbell could see more action because of injuries. QB Brock Krueger was 2 of 2 passing for 148 yards and two TDs last week. He’s thrown for 884, seven TDs and five picks. Glasgow (502) and Montalbano (522) lead the team in rushing. The Cadets average 235 rushing yards and 81 passing a game, but should look to pass more against the Wolves. Opportunistic defense: Over the past 14 quarters, Marmion’s defense has allowed 13 points and scored 18. Prairie Ridge will make Marmion stop its triple-option offense, something the Cadets don’t see in the regular season. They held Fenton to 144 total yards and forced five turnovers in Round 1. The Cadets have 19 interceptions this season, but the Wolves rarely throw. Marmion has allowed only 10.1 points a game, with shutouts the past two weeks. Lineman Joe Talbot joins the two-way players listed above with injuries. Montalbano (LB) leads the team in tackles with 62, followed by Sam Breen with 59. The Cadets must stick to their assignments to defend the option. Prairie Ridge scouting report Option offense clicks: Prairie Ridge has 177 points, 25 TDs and almost 1,700 yards in its fourgame winning streak. The Wolves had only 201 total yards in their 21-14 win against Lakes last week. The triple-option has been effective, with QB Brett Covalt leading the way with 735 rushing yards and 14 TDs. Covalt has been cleared to play against Marmion after taking a shot to the jaw that forced his early exit last week. The Wolves don’t throw much and did not attempt a pass last week. They are not very effective when they do. Zack Greenberg (668 yards, 9 TD), Brent Anderson (617, 3) and Steven Ladd (247, 3) round out the Wolves’ backfield. The Wolves average 25.2 points a game, but it’s 43.7 during their four-game winning streak. The offensive line will be key to a Wolves victory, they will set the tone. Defense builds confidence: Prairie Ridge has allowed an average of 19.1 points a game this season, and 15.2 over the four-game winning streak. Last week the defense kept Lakes from scoring after giving up a 70-yard pass play that left the Mustangs 9 yards shy of a potential game-tying TD. That stand should give the Wolves some confidence. It will be up to the line to get pressure on Krueger and force him to make quick decisions. The defensive backfield should get plenty of action and chances. Although the Cadets spread the field and want to test the Wolves through the air, the numbers show that they still run plenty. Final word The Wolves knocked the Cadets out of the playoffs in 2007, 2009 and 2011. I’m sure Marmion would like to return the favor. It comes down to the spread versus the triple-option on offense, and which of these two solid defenses plays better. Many times injuries, turnovers and special teams make the difference in a close game. Lester’s pick: Prairie Ridge 20, Marmion 14 Lester’s other picks Boylan at Cary-Grove: Boylan by 7 Montini at Marian Central: Montini by 7

Winning programs clash Trojans’ tradition

By JOE STEVENSON CARY – Cary-Grove makes the football playoffs every season with more expectation than hope of sticking around for a while. The Trojans started a current string of 10 consecutive playoff appearances in 2004 when they advanced to the IHSA Class 7A state championship game. C-G has won its first-round game every year of that streak and is 7-2 in second-round games. That’s a trend the No. 9-seeded Trojans hope continues when they host No. 1 Boylan (10-0) in a Class 6A second-round playoff game at 1 p.m. Saturday at Al Bohrer Field. “We hop on being consistent in the offseason and we know that consistency in the offseason kind of carries over to the season,” Trojans linebacker Emerson Kersten said. “Giving a consistent effort every day, never taking plays off, is what it’s all about.” C-G will be meeting a Boylan team that has won 13 of its past 14 playoff games. The Titans won the Class 6A state championship in 2010 and won Class 7A in 2011. C-G’s longer history, a 24-8 postseason record since 2004, is quite impressive itself. “It’s a combination of so many factors and it all probably comes down to our kids buying into our system,”

Cary-Grove has displayed a great postseason tradition since the 2004 season with a 24-8 record. Year Class Opponent Result 2004 7A Woodstock W, 27-20 Belvidere W, 21-14 CL South W, 34-0 Morgan Pk.

“You look at the whole big picture and there’s not one piece of it that’s all the answer together. That’s really been the measure and consistency. I don’t know how to explain it, it’s all part of the program.” C-G, like many teams, brings up some freshmen and sophomores for the playoffs. Linebacker Matt Hughes says that has a profound effect on younger players. “A big part of it is we bring up the sophomores and freshmen during the week they give us a really good look and helps us focus,” Hughes said. “It pulls the team together and builds camaraderie. Everyone is one big team fighting for the same thing together.” Watching quarterfinals, semifinals and state title games – the Trojans have been in three in nine seasons – may inspire those younger players during the next offseason. “With the efforts we put in in practice we set ourselves up to be in that position in the postseason,” Kersten said. “It’s kind of what we expect all season long.” Seaburg said bars of achievement are set and raised constantly, which plays an integral part in the playoff mindset. “Everyone has the expectation to go as far as we can and win as many games as possible,” Hughes said.


Wolves streak into 2nd round By JEFF ARNOLD Dan Thorpe loves the challenge that comes with playoff football preparations when tackling the unknown becomes top priority. But the Marmion Academy coach readily admits that trying to get a handle on Prairie Ridge’s triple-option offense has given him a serious headache. Not only is the Wolves’ run-happy attack the complete opposite of the spread schemes the Cadets are used to seeing, but trying to simulate it in the days leading up to Saturday’s 1 p..m. Class 6A second-round playoff game hasn’t been easy. Thorpe has resorted to taking the football out of the equation, coaching his players to cover their assignments rather than trying to guess where the ball may be going. He has shifted speedy running backs to quarterback to give his defense a better look at what it will face against Prairie Ridge. But as the architect of the Wolves’ offensive game plan, coach Chris Schremp admits that figuring out where the ball is going is only half the battle. “With our offense, there’s timing involved and it takes a long time to get that timing down,” Schremp said. “Then you talk about speed and that’s the next thing involved and that’s the other thing defenses have trouble with. “That’s something we’ve got on our side.” As a team that hasn’t been overly successful in dealing with the triple option and that has lost three times (2007, 2009, 2011) in the playoffs to the Wolves, Marmion understands things won’t get any easier Saturday. The Cadets have several key players, including linebacker and leading tackler Mike Montalbano, slowed by injury. For Thorpe, though, at-

So rather than trying to worry about what they do so much, it’s about what you do.” Prairie Ridge (6-4) has won four straight games and continued to roll on offense last week against Lakes when all of the Wolves’ 61 offensive plays came on the run. Despite losing quarterback Brett Covalt to an injury in the second quarter, the Wolves managed to score just enough and then make a late defensive stand to move on. Covalt has been cleared to play after he was deemed concussion-symptom-free in a medical examination Nov. 2. In the win over Lakes, five

different ball carriers split the workload as Covalt, running backs Zack Greenberg and Steven Ladd, along with backup quarterback Luke Annen, all had double-digit carries. With so many offensive options that have all become effective over the past month, Thorpe knows that stopping the Wolves requires as much deception on his part as the Wolves rely on. “You have to be able to confuse the coaching staff in what you’re doing defensively and, therefore, you have to confuse the quarterback,” Thorpe said. “They’re so well coached that the players know a variety of defenses and they’re able to audible to a different blocking scheme or to a different play. It’s tough to prepare for that.” But despite how well the Wolves are playing on both sides of the ball, Schremp won’t allow his team to get complacent. Starting Saturday with Marmion (8-2),each week brings new challenges. “[The wins] are huge, but we have to go week by week,” senior offensive lineman Shane Evans said. “We’ve got to go 1-0 (against Marmion) and if we do that, we can make it to the next game.”

Sarah Nader –

Marian Central’s Ephraim Lee carries the ball against Montini on Oct. 11 in Lombard. Marian will host Montini on Saturday in a second-round playoff game.


ON TOP OF HIS GAME Young senior Lee leads Hurricanes into action By JOE STEVENSON Marian Central football coach Ed Brucker offered some important news to running back Ephraim Lee as he walked to practice one day last week. “We’re going to redshirt you and have you play another year,” Brucker said. Lee smiled, knowing he likely will be carrying the ball for some NCAA Division I school next year, with his high school eligibility exhausted. Age-wise, however, it would work. Lee celebrated his 17th birthday Sunday, meaning there are juniors at Marian days and months older than him. It’s no wonder Brucker wants to hang on to Lee, a speedy 6-foot-2, 195-pounder who is second in the area with 1,119 yards rushing. No. 9-seeded Marian (8-2) hosts No. 1 Montini (10-0) at 6 p.m. Saturday at George Harding Field in an Class 5A second-round playoff game. “He’s taken more or a leadership role this season and he’s going both ways [offense and defense] now,” Brucker said. “His running has really improved too, he’s cutting better. He’s seeing the holes and getting downhill.” Lee’s mother, Linnel

Allen, sent her son to school early, which makes him a young senior. “One school tried to hold me back because I was too young for first grade, so my mom sent me to a different school,” Lee said. Lee has handled things well physically and in the classroom. He rushed for 1,323 yards and 15 touchdowns last season on Marian’s 11-1 team. He also carries a 3.7 GPA and scored 28 on the ACT. Lee averages 6.8 yards a carry and has 20 touchdowns for the Hurricanes. He scored on a 67-yard run on Marian’s first play in last week’s 42-8 victory at Bremen. “It’s been really good [this season],” Lee said. “The offense has always managed to put up points for our team. We’ve been able to execute and run our plays, our line has been doing amazing. I feel like our offense has done really well and our team has done really well.” Brucker refrained from using Lee on defense until Week 6 against St. Francis. Now, Lee also plays safety. “We tried [to not play him on defense]. That’s why we went with what we did in the beginning,” Brucker said. “We just decided we couldn’t do it. We have a number of skill position kids going both

ways now.” Lee was fine with becoming a two-way player. “Whatever the coaches want me to play, that’s what I’ll play,” Lee said. “Whatever helps us get the win. I actually kind of like it a lot, being able to hit some guys instead of always being hit.” Marian’s players appreciate what Lee brings to the team, especially without star quarterback Chris Streveler, who is at Minnesota. “He’s more of a leader this year,” offensive tackle Nate Patterson said. “Last year, Strev was the glue and everything. Ephraim’s stepped up a lot, not only in the way he’s running, but being a vocal leader.” Lee plans on majoring in engineering in college and has Harvard, Yale and Holy Cross at the top of his list. He is compiling a highlight video and will send that to more coaches sometime soon. First, he will try to lead the Hurricanes past their nemesis the last four years in the postseason. Marian lost at Montini, 40-35, in Week 7. “We knew it was going to happen,” Lee said. “We have to prepare as always. Montini’s the four-time state champion. I feel like it’s going to be a good game, it always is. And we’re going to play our best and get a win.”


They meet again in playoffs By JOE STEVENSON WOODSTOCK – There is an inevitability to every football season for Marian Central and Montini. “If you get two years on varsity, you’re going to play [Montini] four times,” Marian wide receiver-defensive back Tom Klinger said. Since 2004, the only seasons the two have not met in the playoffs were in 2005 and 2008, when Marian missed the postseason. The Hurricanes trail in the rivalry over that span, 6-11, but they get another shot at 6 p.m. Saturday. No. 9 seed Marian (8-2) hosts No. 1 Montini (10-0) in a Class 5A second-round playoff game at George Harding Field with hopes of ending the Broncos’ streak of postseason success between the Suburban Christian Conference powers. Montini knocked the Hurricanes out of the playoffs each

of the past four seasons and went on to win a state championship each time. “We didn’t get it the first time, but we weren’t too disappointed in the way we played,” Hurricanes offensive tackle Nate Patterson said. “We played hard, put up some points, we just have to tighten up the defense and keep doing what we did last game and improve on a few things.” Marian lost at Montini, 4035, in Week 7 of the regular season. Marian hopes it can produce a turnaround from the past two seasons, when it beat Montini in the regular season, then lost in the playoffs. “If we were to lose a game, it was the perfect way to lose in the regular season because it gives our team confidence, and gives them a sense of security that they feel they can romp us,” Klinger said. “Maybe we come out with some new defensive backs and see what

we can do with our defense and turn the tide a little bit.” Marian has confidence that it can score with quarterback Billy Bahl, the area’s passing leader, and running back Ephraim Lee, the area’s No. 2 rusher. What the Hurricanes will need is a way to slow down Montini’s offense. “We have to get a couple more defensive stops,” Hurricanes coach Ed Brucker said. “The least they scored all season was 21 in the first game. Hopefully our offense will play as well as it did last time.” While Marian wants to toss some new looks at Montini, Marian knows the Broncos will switch things up as well. “They come out in regular season and they’re one team, then come out in the playoffs and they’re a whole other team,” Klinger said. “You have to expect them to be the best team you’re going to play and come out and play the best game you can.”
