Parlors busted for prostitution Undercover operation targeted three Crystal Lake businesses for money Wednesday during an undercover operation led by the Crystal Lake Police Department. The investigation into the businesses began following several complaints from residents. Chom Peloquin, 56, Li Huang, 43, and Lijuan Pan, 48, all of Crystal Lake, were charged with prostitution and violation

By LAWERENCE SYNETT lsynett@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – The list of Crystal Lake massage parlors recently busted for prostitution has gone from zero to four in less than two months. Police said employees at three separate businesses engaged in sexual acts in exchange

of the Massage Licensing Act. Sun Guifen, 49, also was charged with violating the act, and none of the employees involved had valid massage licenses. Police said the illegal activities took place at Marigolds Massage, 2 Crystal Lake Plaza; Blue Sky Spa, 632 N. Route 31; and Aleda Massage, 1500 Carlemont Drive.

“These spas are popping up all over the place because they blend in with all the legitimate businesses,” Crystal Lake police Cmdr. Dan Dziewior said. “The difficult part is conducting an investigation. You have to invest time, and it has to be done a certain way to be successful.”

Josiah Kitchel clears out a stall Saturday while doing repairs and upgrades around the Lake in the Hills horse stable he and his wife are renting from the village.

Couple take over Lake in the Hills horse facility By JOSEPH BUSTOS jbustos@shawmedia.com LAKE IN THE HILLS – Samantha and Josiah Kitchel decided a few months ago they didn’t want to live in the Rockford house they were renting, and preferred the countryside so they could have horses. Josiah Kitchel, 28, then found

the listing for the Lake in the Hills horse facility at 1109 Pyott Road. They took a look, did some research on the facility and decided to write a business plan. “We want our family to grow up around horses, and this seemed like one of those amazing opportunities,” said Samantha Kitchel, who has worked in horse stables. “It’s definitely been an adventure

so far.” Ultimately, the Village Board chose the Kitchels’ plan to run RoseGate Equestrian Center over two other proposals to run the horse facility and replace Dynasty Farm. The Kitchels and their 15-monthold son, Devereaux, moved in during November and began sweeping,

CHICAGO – A few feet from a life-size nativity scene at Chicago’s annual Christmas market stands an 8½-foot-tall letter “A’’ that says “Bah Humbug” to all of that. Adorned with red lights that make it look a bit like a misshapen candy cane, the big “A’’ stands for atheist or agnostic. The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation erected it this holiday season to send the message that it believes religious displays on public property are unconstitutional violations of the separation of church and state. But instead of employing the typical tactic of suing to block religious displays on public land, the foundation’s Chicago installation sends another message as well: If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. “We would rather there not be religion on government property, or atheism, but given the state of the law it looks like these public forums are here to stay,” said Annie Laurie Gaylor, the group’s co-president. Faced with the reality that religious displays are often massive, the group decided it needed something bigger and brighter than the banners it has put up in other cities, and that it was worth the $1,500 to build the huge scarlet

GENERAL INFORMATION: 815-459-4040

Each winter, it’s mind over windshield It was the great experiment over the forces of cold. It was the last resort, in fact. Drive all the way from Woodstock to Crystal Lake and back without the heat on and the window cracked to let the 8-degree air circulate inside the car. Meanwhile, I froze. But if it meant not having to scrape thick frost from the windshield the next morning, the bitter cold all would be worth it. It’s not like I was driving to Iowa in 8-degree weather. We all have our limits. Ever since it started getting cold a month ago, frost started appearing on the windshield and windows of the Impala. And it takes 5 to 10 minutes to scrape holes big enough to see through to drive to work. And by holes, I mean pretty much all of the glass area because I seem to have this idea that it is the law. The spouse of a co-worker was ticketed a few years back for having a fogged up windshield. Which was bad enough. But he was getting off his third shift – his last one because he had just found out he was laid off. Which is really bad. It wasn’t that cold that morning, just enough apparently to create a little windshield fog. How the officer saw this – it was dark – I don’t know.

8LOTTERY

VIEWS Dick Peterson Why he wouldn’t let him off with a warning given the circumstances is beyond me. No compassion. But I know I don’t want to get that ticket, and I think of the poor guy every morning when I am scraping the ice off my windshield. I mutter under my breath. I used to have this piece of hard clear plastic about double the size of a credit card that fit perfectly into my hand to scrape frost off the windshield. It came off an old machine from 25 or 30 years ago, and it worked great. It was just sharp enough and broad enough to scrape the window clean rather efficiently. But it’s been four or five winters since we’ve had a second car, and I’ve lost track of that makeshift scraper. It’s somewhere on the messy bench in our one-car garage, and it won’t surface until spring, I’m sure. It’s always a crapshoot when you buy ice scrapers at the store. Inside, they might look like they are sharp and thick and strong, but invariably they don’t conform to the slight curve

on the windshield, and they scrape away scratches on your windshield rather than patches, kind of like if you were to use your fingers to scrape the ice away. And the very thought sends shivers down my spine. Fingernails across a chalkboard. Only frozen. You would think the “they” would have come up with the perfect scraper in the hundred years we’ve been driving cars. I mean, I had it in my hand – just a extra piece of clear hard plastic from a broken-down machine. If I had been thinking, I would have gotten a patent for new, improved, never-fail ice scraper, but I wasn’t a visionary. My train to fortune pulled in and out of the station before I knew what to do. That separates the Edisons from the Petersons. The next best thing is to let the car warm up on cold mornings, but I’m afraid to let the car idle unattended in the driveway. Seems like an invitation to theft, although the only people to walk by our house are students going to the corner to wait for the school bus. I suppose one of them could make a break for it. We used to have a car with a remote that started the car while it was still locked. That way worked great

to clear a frosted windshield, heating the inside of the car. That worked great until it started starting on its own, which was disconcerting. It could start almost anywhere – never a good thing. We had it surgically removed. That was one sweet gadget. But the experiment to keep the inside of the car as cold as the 8-degree temperature outside failed. It got down to about zero that night, and there was frost on the windshield, although it was lighter than usual. Normally my drive from work to home is only a few minutes – not all the way to Crystal Lake and back – and that might be short enough to prevent any stray body heat from beginning to warm the inside of the car. What body heat? I’m shivering. I will continue experimenting. There has to be a connection between the inside temperature of the car and the amount of frost on the windshield. If I can keep them even, I should be able to avoid frost. I’d rather shiver than scrape.

Mild 2013 does not end Arctic warming worries The Associated Press WASHINGTON – The rapid melting in the Arctic eased up this year. But the government says global warming is still dramatically altering the top of the world, reducing the number of reindeer and shrinking snow and ice, while increasing certain fish and extending the growing season. The National Oceanic and

Buy or Refi... Nancy Howley

Atmospheric Administration issued its report card for the Arctic on Thursday, portraying 2013 as moderate compared with the roasting 2012. Overall Arctic temperatures didn’t soar quite as high, and Greenland ice sheets and summer sea ice didn’t melt as much. “The Arctic caught a break, if you will, in 2013, but one year doesn’t change the longterm trend toward a warmer

Arctic,” said report card editor Martin Jeffries, a University of Alaska geophysicist who is the science adviser to the U.S. Arctic Research Commission. “The Arctic has shifted to a new normal,” Jeffries said at the American Geophysical Union scientific conference in San Francisco, where the 136page report card was released. While 2013 looks a tad cool compared with the last six years, it is unusually warm

compared with the 20th century, he said. But one of the biggest climate change indicators, summer sea ice, wasn’t as bad as expected. Sea ice in 2013 reached its sixth-lowest level in the three decades that NOAA has been keeping track. That’s up from the lowest ever in 2012. But the seven lowest levels have all occurred in the past seven years.

State wards won’t be moved from disabled center The ASSOCIATED PRESS CARLYLE – A judge’s ruling this week means 23 wards of the state will not be moved for now from the facility for the developmentally disabled where they live in southern Illinois. It was welcome news to groups behind a federal civil rights lawsuit seeking to block the state’s closure of the Mur-

8STATE BRIEFS Village’s firing of two police officers upheld FREEBURG – A southwestern Illinois village was within its rights to fire two police officers who vandalized department property and pulled pranks on their colleagues, a state arbitrator ruled. Gerard Fowler concluded in a report released last week that the conduct of former Freeburg officers John Blomenkamp and Steve Burrows “was so egregious and so harmful to the prosecution of future cases that the village was well advised to terminate their employment as police officers,” the Belleville News-Democrat reported Thursday. A lawyer for the officers, Bill Berry, had argued that the 4,300-resident St. Clair County village’s actions against his clients may have been politically motivated by their union activities. Blomenkamp and Burrows had sought their jobs back and pay retroactive to their August 2012 firings. With the police union’s blessings, Police Chief Mel Woodruff in 2011 installed video surveillance of the department’s multipurpose room, and officials said the cameras later recorded the misconduct by Blomenkamp and Burrows. The footage allegedly showed Burrows kicking and denting another officer’s file cabinet and lockers, Blomenkamp taking documents from other officers’ file cabinets and his taking another officer’s pair of gloves.

ray Developmental Center in Centralia. Gov. Pat Quinn ordered Murray and other facilities closed last year as part of an effort to save the state tens of millions of dollars. The suit, filed by parents of residents and support groups for the developmentally disabled, contends that the more than 200 people living at Murray would not get the care they need if

“It’s something I’ve worried about since the beginning.

Prosecutors won’t retry Illinois man in ’82 rape By MICHAEL TARM The Associated Press CHICAGO – Prosecutors told a judge Thursday that they won’t retry an Illinois man who was set free this week after spending three decades behind bars for a rape he says he didn’t commit. Stanley Wrice, looking clearly relieved, shook his head and exhaled as Cook County Judge Richard Walsh officially ended the criminal case against the 59-year-old by saying, “The case is dismissed.” As he left the courtroom, Wrice embraced his attorneys. When one turned to tell a crowd of people waiting for hearings in unrelated cases that Wrice had just be exonerated after 31 years, they broke into applause. “I feel like I am walking into a dream that finally came true,” said Wrice, standing in a hallway. After the hearing, which lasted just minutes, assistant special prosecutor Rafael Bombino declined to discuss why the state chose to drop charges and not try Wrice again, saying only that, “It’s over now.” Wrice said that after being

His lawyers said they expect to file a lawsuit on Wrice’s behalf soon, but that they next plan to apply for a “certificate of innocence,” that could qualify Wrice for a nearly $200,000 payment from the state. Such a payment would be separate from any potential award he might get from the lawsuit. “This is the official end of

this travesty of justice,” one of Wrice’s attorneys, Jennifer Bonjean, said Thursday. “But it is the beginning of his life.” Wrice will start a new job next week working on outreach projects for the Chicago Innocence Project, which investigates cases of those who may have been wrongly convicted. Wrice is among more than two dozen inmates – most of them black men – who have alleged they were tortured by officers under the command of disgraced former Chicago police Lt. Jon Burge.

Peoria mulls trying to woo inactive WWII warship PEORIA – Peoria officials are considering whether to try to woo a decommissioned World War II warship from its mooring in Indiana. Central Illinois community leaders are examining how to get the LST-325 tank landing ship to relocate once its 10-year contract with Evansville, Ind., expires, The Peoria Journal Star reported. The ship, which is on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places and was used in the Normandy landings at Omaha Beach, doubles as a museum and is among the last of its kind to remain seaworthy. Peoria City Manager Patrick Urich said Peoria officials are researching how much it would cost to build a permanent dock for the boat, which attracts as many as 10,000 visitors a year at its current location. “It’s a question of costs and it’s a question of desire,” Urich said after Peoria’s City Council gave the go-ahead to pursue the boat. “If the costs come back and it’s $4 million to put in a dock, I’m not sure they would do it. If the package is more affordable than that, maybe they’ll be interested in making a proposal.” The newspaper reports the permanent dock and facilities for the ship in Evansville, where the boat has been since 2005, cost about $3 million.

tution can adequately handle, the lawsuit says. The legal action has delayed transfers for most residents, but 23 of them are wards of the state with no parents or guardians to advocate for them. A Clinton County judge decided Wednesday to postpone a ruling on whether they will be included in the lawsuit, the Belleville News-Democrat re-

Police probe death of Iowa man along I-88 The ASSOCIATED PRESS DIXON – An investigation into the death of an Iowa man on an Illinois tollway won’t include an examination of why his body was discovered 12 hours after motorists first reported seeing the man alive on the side of the road, Illinois State Police said Thursday. Troopers dispatched the night of Nov. 12 to Interstate 88 near Dixon did not see signs of the man at least two passers-by called 911 to report they spotted him on the ground waving his arms on the tollway’s shoulder, state police spokeswoman Monique Bond said. The body of longtime teacher Lee Catlin, 65, of Bettendorf, Iowa, was found near there the next day. It’s not immediately clear why Catlin was on the tollway.

The Lee County coroner’s office has determined that no foul play was suspected in Catlin’s death, though Bond said the state police investigation of the death continues. But Bond stressed “there’s no internal investigation” about the length of time it took to find Catlin’s body since a trucker first told a Lee County dispatcher shortly before 8:30 p.m. Nov. 12 that he saw a man along the tollway “waving his arms back and forth.” Another motorist made a similar observation in calling 911 some 16 minutes later, noting there was “no car around” the man, according to 911 tapes first obtained and reported by Sauk Valley Media. When it comes to state police’s response, Bond said, “all protocols and procedures were followed.”

have the barn full within two years, Samantha Kitchel said. The village also plans to help the Kitchels by investing about $40,500 into the facility with septic system upgrades, a roof replacement and the addition of perimeter fencing. “Turnout area is what this place lacks,” Samantha Kitchel said. “The turnout areas now will not sustain, in my opinion, more than 10 horses. Having that large area ready to go, with fencing, offers us the setup to bring in more horses and care for them properly.” For the Kitchels to attract people to board their horses to the facility will require them to be themselves, Samantha Kitchel said. “We’re very happy, relaxed, go-lucky people,” Samantha Kitchel said. “I have high standards of horse care, mainly because I’ve worked in so many barns that have been successful and the level of horse care was amazing, and I want to mirror that. I want to be able to create a place where people can come and know their horses are well taken care of.”

Though naming no names, he accused such groups and others of stirring up opposition on the right to a budget bill worked out with Democrats that would replace some across-the-board spending cuts now in place with longer-term savings. “When groups come out and criticize an agreement that they’ve never seen, you begin to wonder just how credible those actions are,” he told reporters.

They are repairing doors and replacing lights. “[There’s] a lot of maintenance things making it look better,” 26-year-old Samantha Kitchel said. “There is some stuff that is run down.” They expect to have their first boarders at the beginning of the new year. The Kitchels expect to invest about $20,000 of their own money into the barn to bring in limestone, fix door fixtures, lights, broken boards and other things. Samantha Kitchel said she thinks the way they structured the lease will be helpful. A third of their horse stable revenue will go toward rent payments, rather than having a fixed amount due to the village by a certain time period. The monthly rent payment will be capped at $4,600 per month. “I think that’s going to be a part of our success, because we want to make the barn self-sufficient,” Samantha Kitchel said. “How else do you do that, by only having the rent be what the barn is bringing in.” Tricia Sales, 35, of Cary is set to be the horse trainer at RoseGate Equestrian Center. She said the barn and its two indoor arenas should be a plus. Sales said she used to show horses at the barn when it was called Spring Hill Farms about 15 to 20 years ago. “I want to get the place back to when it was Spring Hill Farms and thriving,” Sales said.

Phony signer at Mandela event says he hallucinated

Officials: U.S. drone kills 13 in Yemen

By ALAN CLENDENNING and JUERGEN BAETZ

By AHMED AL–HAJ The Associated Press

The Associated Press

SANAA, Yemen – Missiles fired by a U.S. drone slammed into a convoy of vehicles traveling to a wedding party in central Yemen on Thursday, killing at least 13 people, Yemeni security officials said. The officials said the attack took place in the city of Radda, the capital of Bayda province, and left charred bodies and burnt out cars on the road. The city, a stronghold of al-Qaida militants, witnessed deadly clashes early last year between armed tribesmen backed by the military and al-Qaida gunmen in an attempt to drive them out of the city. There were no immediate details on who was killed in the strike, and there were conflicting reports about whether there were militants traveling with the wedding convoy. A military official said initial information indicated the drone mistook the wedding party for an al-Qaida convoy. He said tribesmen known to the villagers were among the dead. One of the three security officials, however, said al-Qaida militants were suspected to have been traveling with the wedding convoy. The CIA declined to comment on the reported drone strike. If further investigations determine that the victims were all civilians, the attack could fuel an outburst of anger against the United States and the government in Sanaa among a Yemeni public already opposed to the U.S. drone strikes. Civilian deaths have bred resentments on a local level, sometimes undermining U.S. efforts to turn the public against the militants.

JOHANNESBURG – The sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela’s memorial says he suffers from schizophrenia and hallucinated and saw angels while gesturing incoherently just 3 feet away from President Barack Obama and other world leaders, outraging deaf people worldwide who said his signs amounted to gibberish. South African officials scrambled Thursday to explain how they came to hire the man and said they were investigating what vetting process, if any, he underwent for his security clearance. “In the process, and in the speed of the event, a mistake happened,” deputy Cabinet minister Hendrietta Bogopane-Zulu said. She apologized to deaf people around the world who were offended by the in-

Asiana crash probe renews debate over aviation culture By DAVID KOENIG and MARTHA MENDOZA The Associated Press New details about the crash of an Asiana Airlines jet have renewed questions about whether a culture of strict deference to more-senior pilots can compromise air safety. Documents and testimony from the National Transportation Safety Board this week showed there was confusion and poor communication in the cockpit of the Asiana jet as it approached San Francisco International Airport in July. Two of the pilots told investigators they opted against voicing critical concerns or grabbing the controls because they were subordinate to the instructor. The co-pilot, who was sitting in a jump seat at the back of the cockpit, told investigators that the plane seemed to be descending too quickly from a high altitude. He “prepared in his mind to recommend something” to the two more-senior pilots at the controls, “but he did not.” The pilot flying the plane

was an experienced flier who was being trained on the Boeing 777. But when asked whether he considered aborting the landing and circling around as they came in too low and too slow, he said such a “go-around” maneuver should be done only by the captain or an instructor pilot. “That is very hard to explain; that is our culture,” investigators quoted him saying. The pilot also said he was momentarily blinded by a beam of bright light. He wasn’t wearing aviator sunglasses because he said that would be disrespectful in the presence of a superior like his instructor in the next seat. After cockpit culture was identified as a factor in several South Korean airliner crashes in the 1980s and ’90s, procedures and hierarchies were overhauled in Korea and elsewhere, including the U.S., improving that situation. But the Asiana crash on July 6 thrust the issue back to the forefront. The plane’s tail clipped a seawall, and the aircraft spun down the runway. Three Chi-

nese teens died, including one who was run over by two fire trucks as rescuers rushed to the scene; 304 people survived, the vast majority without major injuries. The National Transportation Safety Board hasn’t identified a cause of the crash yet, but during a daylong hearing Wednesday much of the testimony focused on confusion about automated speed settings and pilot training. Board Chairman Deborah Hersman said all international airlines have their cultural differences but that it wasn’t an emphasis of the hearing. “Certainly in any cockpit on any airline from any country of the world, there are cultural issues that can come into play,” she said. She added that investigators were trying to focus on all issues carefully and fairly and dealing only with the facts of the situation. “We have not talked a lot about cultural issues in today’s hearing, and I would ask you to reserve judgment until the NTSB finishes its fact-finding in this matter,” she said.

Data shows disparity in health care sign-up rates By DAVID A. LIEB The Associated Press JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Residents in some parts of the U.S. are signing up for health care coverage at a significantly greater rate than others through the new online insurance marketplaces now operating in every state. The discrepancy may trace back to the political leanings of their elected leaders. Newly released federal figures show more people are picking private insurance plans or being routed to Medicaid programs in states with Democratic leaders who have fully embraced the federal health care law than in states where Republican elected offi-

cal divide are a dozen mostly Democratic leaning states, including California, Minneso-

ta and New York. They have both expanded Medicaid for lower-income adults and started their own health insurance exchanges for people to shop for federally subsidized private insurance. On the other side are two dozen conservative states, such as Texas, Florida and Missouri. They have both rejected the Medicaid expansion and refused any role in running an online insurance exchange. The new federal figures, providing a state-by-state breakdown of enrollment in the new health care program through November, showed the political differences among leaders over the initiative are turning into differences in participation among the uninsured.

“In the process, and in the speed of the event, a mistake happened.” Hendrietta Bogopane-Zulu Deputy Cabinet minister comprehensible signing. However, she declined to say whether a government department, the presidency or the ruling African National Congress party was responsible for hiring the sign interpreter, telling reporters it isn’t the time to “point fingers and vilify each other and start shouting.” The man at the center of the controversy said in an interview with The Associated Press on Thursday that he began hallucinating while onstage in the stadium filled with tens of thousands of people and that he tried not to panic because there were “armed policemen around me.”

Legal weed sales will be spotty in Colorado By KRISTEN WYATT The Associated Press DENVER – Legal marijuana sales in Colorado are set to start on Jan. 1, or so the law says. Knowing when the recreational pot shops will actually open, however, is anyone’s guess. The state’s 160 hopeful pot shops are so mired in red tape and confusion that no one knows yet when or if they’ll be allowed to open. Not a single shop will clear state and local licensing requirements until about Dec. 27. “There’s a perception that come Jan. 1, Colorado’s going to be like Walmart on Black Friday, people pour-

ing through the doors. Not going to happen,” said Mike Elliott, spokesman for the state’s Medical Marijuana Industry Group. Even as so-called ganjapreneurs are expanding operations, pouring concrete and planning tentative grand openings, they’re still navigating a maze of regulations. Many of the applicants are still waiting on inspections, local zoning hearings and background checks before finding out whether they’ve been approved to open their doors to adults over 21. “There might be a lot of disappointed people on New Year’s Day,” Elliott said.

Additional charges, arrests expected Vandalism of atheist displays is common • PROSTITUTION Continued from page A1 During the undercover operation, the employees were charged after they performed a massage before attempting a sexual act on the police officers posing as customers. “Our guys didn’t go in there and ask for something extra, and it wasn’t offered to them,” Dziewior said. “[The employees] just started doing it and were immediately arrested.” Additional charges and arrests are expected as numerous violations of city ordinances regarding building codes also were discovered, police said. Members of the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office, Kane County Sheriff’s Office and Federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents assisted with the investigation.

The arrests come less than a month after the owner of a massage parlor in an unincorporated area of McHenry County near Crystal Lake was arrested for prostitution a second time. Shufang Lu, 49, of Chicago was arrested Nov. 19 and charged with prostitution, unlawful practice of massage therapy and violation of a bail bond following a second undercover operation by the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office at her business, Spring Spa, at 5610 S. Route 31. After her first arrest in late October, members of the sheriff’s office received additional complaints from residents about suspicious activity at the business. During both undercover operations, police said Lu agreed to perform sexual acts for money. A second woman, Jing Hua, 50, also was charged with unlawful practice of mas-

sage therapy after the second incident. Oftentimes, the businesses caught performing the illegal acts are connected, with employees moving from one location to another, Dziewior said. “They are still giving a massage as they normally would, the only difference is how it ends,” Dziewior said. “It all depends on the type of customer and employee. If you ask for a little something extra, you are most likely going to be shown the door.” The price difference between a massage and the sexual acts is negligible, police said. “It’s not that much more for illegal sexual conduct than it is for the legal massage,” Dziewior said. “We do not consider this an epidemic, but it brought up concerns that we wanted to address right away. We don’t want this to become more prevalent.”

• DISPLAY Continued from page A1 letter and the $500 the city charges to put it up and plug it in at the “Christkindlmarket” at Daley Plaza. “Our little banners are dwarfed by those nativity scenes and menorahs, and we were trying to find something to compete with them,” Gaylor said of what is the group’s biggest, most ambitious and expensive display ever. Reinforcing the message of the big, flashy “A,” the display includes a banner that depicts its own version of a nativity scene: An image of Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and the Statue of Liberty gazing lovingly at the Bill of Rights nestled in a manger. And just in case that’s still too subtle, the banner also is emblazoned with the words “Happy Winter Solstice”

An 8 1/2-foot-tall letter “A,” which stands for atheist or agnostic is on display Tuesday at the annual Christmas market in Chicago’s Daley Plaza. – referring to the annual astronomical event tied to the seasons – which the group tells holiday revelers is “the true reason for the season,” as opposed to the birth of Jesus Christ. “They don’t even know what they’re celebrating, and we’re pointing that out,” said Gaylor. The group is closely watch-

ing the display’s reception and has asked the city to keep a close eye on it to ensure it does not meet the same fate as some of their other displays. Gaylor says there have been outright thefts in Boston and other cities as well as defacement like a banner in Ottawa, Ill., that had a run-in with a guy in a Santa Claus suit armed with a paint brush.

Give wisely to charity This time of year is a popular one for giving. Whether it’s for the holidays or to beat the end of the tax year, people donate a lot of money to charities in December. Unfortunately, scam artists know this, too, and use the opportunity to prey upon unsuspecting people. Before you decide to give to a charity, the IRS offers these tips to avoid being For the record defrauded: • Donate to Take precautions to make qualified charisure you don’t become a ties. Use the victim of fraud because of your Exempt Organizacharity. tions Select Check tool at IRS.gov to find qualified charities. Only donations to qualified charitable organizations are tax-deductible. • Be wary of charities with similar names. Some phony charities use names that are similar to familiar or nationally known organizations. They may use names or websites that sound or look like those of legitimate organizations. • Don’t give out personal financial information. Do not give your Social Security number, credit card and bank account numbers and passwords to anyone who solicits a contribution from you. Scam artists use this information to steal your identity and money. • Don’t give or send cash. For security and tax record purposes, contribute by check or credit card or another way that provides documentation of the donation. Additionally, the FBI offers these suggestions: The FBI provides the following tips for consumers wishing to make contributions: • Do not respond to unsolicited (spam) email. • Be skeptical of individuals representing themselves as officials soliciting via email for donations. • Do not click on links contained within an unsolicited email. • Be cautious of email claiming to contain pictures in attached files, as the files may contain viruses. Only open attachments from known senders. This is the season of giving. Take precautions to make sure you don’t become a victim of fraud because of your charity.

Do more to free helpers The U.S. should provide support to anyone who risks their lives to help the U.S. government. It’s a matter of principle, and, more important, respect. Two cases come to mind in which the U.S. has seemingly turned its back on those who have helped us. The most publicized case is Shakil Afridi, a Pakistani doctor who helped the United States track and kill al-Qaida mastermind Osama bin Laden. Afridi has been rotting in a prison cell for nearly two years. A Pakistani tribunal continues to hold him without bail. Another disturbing case is that of American Alan Gross. This man was working to advance the goals of a government agency and now the U.S. leaves him to rot in a Cuban prison. Something is clearly wrong with this picture. The (Bowling Green, Ky.)

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Need leaders in office To the Editor: Government mismanagement has caused our economic and financial problems – from the national, state and some local levels. At the national level, the U.S. continues to increase our national debt and borrows from China to support its spending. This debt will be passed on to grandchildren and future generations. At the state level, Illinois, as an example, cannot pay current bills and has not met future pension cost obligations. Therefore, its will increase current employee pension costs and reduce current pension payments to retirees. These retirees earned their money and chose to retire based on the income expected. The city of Chicago has financial problems they address by issuing or extending bond issues. It also sells or leases property or assets. The last big sale was the 75-year lease of the city parking system. That money was to balance the budget and has been spent. It probably will sell some “naming right” to property next. The city of Detroit has had to file bankruptcy, which will only compound the problem. Many of these failing governments do not address current

problems. They choose to pass it on to future administrations and generations. The ones affected by their mismanagement are the citizens they are to serve. We need business leaders not politicians. I commend the governments that are financially stable and serve their constituents.

Time for Lesperance to resign To the Editor: I have resided in Nunda Township for over 20 years. In all that time, our community never has been sued – as far as I know. Recently, an article appeared in the Northwest Herald, saying that because of negligence on the part of our newly elected Highway Commissioner Mike Lesperance, McHenry County is suing Nunda. It might be negligence or it might be arrogance on his part. Whatever, the article says in no uncertain terms that Lesperance was warned that his failure to obtain the necessary permits would result in a violation of ordinances. This is the kind of blatant disregard for law that many of today’s politicians exhibit, and it should

not be tolerated at any level. I call on township officials to demand that Lesperance pay the costs of defending the suit out of his own pocket. This is not a taxpayer problem, and, therefore, must not be a taxpayer obligation. I also call on Lesperance to publicly apologize to the taxpayers of Nunda Township and to resign immediately. Don Shattuck McHenry

Bracelet located To the Editor: I attended the Woodstock Opera House play “A Christmas Carol” on Dec. 1. When I arrived back home, I discovered that my amethystand-diamonds tennis bracelet was missing. I had just put it on before leaving the house. The next day, I searched the

house and car, but to no avail. I got out my homeowners’ insurance folder, ready to call my agent to report it missing. It was a Christmas gift one year from my husband, and I really preferred to have it back. So, on a far chance, I called the Woodstock Opera House office, and later received a call back. It had been found before the performance on the stairs leading to the balcony and turned in to an employee. It found its way to the office. I was amazed. It would have been very easy for the finder to just slip it into a pocket, but I do know there are some honest, sincere people, especially here in my backyard. So a big “thank you” to whoever found my bracelet! Pam Johnson-Gillis Crystal Lake

Pension reform comes too little, too late for this taxpayer Thank you, state lawmakers, for enacting pension reform, or something like it. I think. I’m not convinced that the bill you finally passed is really reform. There is the good chance that the courts will find it unconstitutional. But even if they don’t, I doubt that the cost savings that legislative leaders have touted will come close to fruition. That’s because I trust your word about as far as I can throw the cell blocks of the federal prisons where Illinois lawmakers spend their golden retirement years. You get a C-minus for effort. You would have gotten an A had you not waited umpteen years to fix the problem, if it can be fixed – I’ll get to that later. But your efforts aside, this taxpayer and his family still are planning to bug out of Illinois some day soon. My 1-year-old daughter is going to start school in a state where the government doesn’t see us as ATMs that can walk and talk. It’s been my family’s plan for a while, and sorry to say, this pension reform

is a day late and $100 billion short. After 42 years, I’m breaking up with Illinois. We need to see other people. It’s not you, it’s me. OK, that’s a lie. It’s totally you. Lawmakers last week passed a bill that supporters said will solve the state’s $100 billion pension shortfall, mostly by reining in the 3 percent compounded cost-of-living increases for four of the five staterun pension systems. The untouched system is the one for retired judges, to try and smooth over that whole constitutional thing. The geniuses who drafted the 1970 Illinois Constitution included a provision that public-sector pension benefits “shall not be diminished or impaired.” I guess they thought the mandate would force future lawmakers to fully fund the system, which makes about as much sense as a couple in a troubled marriage deciding to have a child to force them to stay together. Of course, lawmakers scoffed at the provision. They’ve shorted their end of the bargain for decades so

VIEWS Kevin P. Craver they could spend the money on other things. At the same time, lawmakers repeatedly approved plusher retirement benefits for public employees so that it’s not uncommon for retirees after 10 to 15 years to be making more than they were when they were working. So one of three things is going to happen with this pension reform bill. The courts will find it unconstitutional and toss it, the courts will uphold it but the savings won’t materialize, or the savings will materialize but lawmakers will find ways around it and continue to spend us into oblivion. In all three scenarios, taxpayers lose. In all fairness, the pension mess is far from the sole reason the Cravers plan to join the exodus of people fleeing the state. For starters, there’s that 67 per-

8THE FIRST AMENDMENT

cent income tax increase that lawmakers blatantly lied about when they called it “temporary.” There’s the never-ending parade of taxing bodies that show up outside my door each year with their palms outstretched. Homeowners in a county dominated by the Party of Low Taxes and Small Government have one of the highest property-tax burdens in the nation and enough local governments to fill a stadium. There’s our state’s endemic corruption that’s great for late-night comedians, but lousy for the rest of us. I’m sick of lying on my vacations that I’m from Wisconsin – people start asking me about the Green Bay Packers, and I can’t bull my way through it. As for cherries on the sundae, Illinois has the severe weather of Texas but not its economy, the winters of Alaska but not its scenery, the humidity of Florida but not its beaches, the taxes of California but not its climate, and the corruption of Louisiana but not its cuisine. We pay too high a price for the privilege of looking at corn. But

nothing motivates like the tick-ticktick of the pension time bomb. More than one Springfield watcher has used the adjective “ailing” to describe the state-run pension systems, as if they are medical patients. However, as everyone who has lost a loved one knows, sometimes there’s no cure. Doctors tell the patient to make themself comfortable and get their houses in order. Will that be the case in Illinois? Time will tell, but if the state’s Day of Reckoning does come, I don’t plan to be here and have a front-row seat. As I wrote in a February story about how to survive a mass shooting, the only guaranteed way to avoid becoming a casualty of a disaster is to be somewhere else when it strikes. • Kevin P.

Huntley OKs 2014 budget Financial plan features no major capital projects By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO sdibenedetto@shawmedia.com HUNTLEY – The village’s $21.56 million budget for 2014 is relatively unchanged from the current plan and features

no major capital projects, a departure from recent years that brought dramatic changes to Huntley’s infrastructure. The total budget carries about 20 percent less in ex-

penses than in 2013, when officials budgeted $5.23 million to extend Kreutzer Road west from Route 47 to Main Street. Huntley’s day-to-day operating budget is balanced at $9.79 million. It includes about $620,100 more in revenues and expenses than in 2013. “I would characterize the ’14 budget as conservative, responsible and reflective of the priorities in the village’s

strategic plan,” Village Manager Dave Johnson said. The Village Board unanimously endorsed the 2014 financial plan on Thursday. Building permits and application fees from new development primarily make up the revenue increases in the operating budget. Increased police pension obligations, health insurance costs and salaries and benefits for three new village em-

ployees make up the added expenses, Johnson said. Huntley residents won’t see major changes to the village’s infrastructure in the coming year. Capital funds have been depleted after officials in recent years completed major road projects, including a widened Route 47, a new Interstate 90 interchange and

Life Connections student David Kendzora enters a Sunshine Taxi after shopping for groceries Thursday in Woodstock. Life Connections is a transitional program for exceptional learners ages 18 to 21. Sunshine Taxi has been helping with transportation for the students in the program, which teaches independent living skills such as buying items used to plan and prepare a meal. TOP: Woodstock North teacher Mike DeGrassi (center right) shops Thursday with Life Connections students Zack Chlenart, David Kendzora and Mackenzie Pruden in Woodstock. By SHAWN SHINNEMAN sshinneman@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – Four and a half miles. That’s the distance students in the Life Connections transitional program travel each week: from Woodstock North High School down

Raffel Road to Route 120, along bottlenecked Route 47 to Lake Avenue. End at Walmart, grab ingredients, reverse the trip another four and a half miles. It’s a weekly routine for the members of District 200’s special-needs program for 18to 21-year-olds that is made

simple by the contributions of a local business owner. Looking to find more reliable and time-efficient transportation than the buses the program had used in the past, Woodstock North teacher Mike DeGrassi sat down before the school year to call local cab companies.

First on the list? Sunshine Taxi. Owner Tamra Tomasello was receptive. DeGrassi told her he’d run it up the ladder and secure the needed funding to pay her, Tomasello remembered.

Crews were called to 16706 Garden Valley Road around 12:30 a.m. for a report of a structure fire, according to Woodstock Deputy Fire Chief Terry Menzel. Firefighters arrived to find a two-story, single-family residence fully engulfed in flames. One man was home at the time of the fire and was not injured, but a pit bull died. It took firefighters roughly three hours to extinguish the blaze, and crews remained on the scene until 7 a.m. as they continued to battle hot spots from the fire, Menzel said.

The School District 12 Board unanimously approved an 18 percent balloon levy Tuesday evening, though the district only expects to capture about 1.7 percent. A state tax cap limits how much local governments – non-home rule communities, school districts and park districts – can increase the amount they collect in property taxes to inflation plus new growth and improvements.

FOX RIVER GROVE: MAN SUFFERS INJURIES

LAKE IN THE HILLS: BOND TO BE DETERMINED

Metra train strikes truck in FRG

Two charged in drug investigation

By JIM DALLKE jdallke@shawmedia.com

and JOSEPH BUSTOS jbustos@shawmedia.com

NORTHWEST HERALD

FOX RIVER GROVE – A Palatine man suffered injuries that were not life-threatening after his pickup truck was struck by a Metra train. Police and rescue workers were dispatched at 11:12 a.m. Thursday to Route 14 and Lincoln Avenue to respond to a report of a Metra train collision with a pickup truck. Fox River Grove police said the driver of the pickup, Frank Gammoh, 47, of Palatine, was eastbound on Route 14 and turned right onto Lincoln Avenue through the railroad crossing gates and stopped on the tracks. The front end of the truck was struck by a slow moving, inbound Metra train arriving at the station. Firefighters had to extricate Gammoh from the truck. He was transported to Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington with injuries that were not life-threatening. The hospital said Gammoh was being treated and was ex-

LAKE IN THE HILLS – Two Lake in the Hills residents have been charged with possession of drugs as part of a two-month long McHenry County Sheriff’s Office investigation. Jacob D. Boudrie, 30, on Wednesday sold prescription pills to undercover members of the narcotics unit, police said. Boudrie and Simone A. Nadeau, 26, were then pulled over in a traffic stop in Crystal Lake where detectives found two grams of marijuana, 35 oxycodone pills, 30 hydrocodone pills and 40 methadone pills, sheriff’s police said. The estimated street value of the drugs is about $750.

ELGIN: PROPERTY TAXES

ECC board approves $55.5M levy request By BRENDA SCHORY bschory@shawmedia.com ELGIN – The Elgin Community College District 509 Board this week approved a $55.5 million levy for 2013, a 1 percent increase compared to last year’s request of $55 million, officials said. The increase will raise property taxes on a house valued at $250,000 by $21, said Sharon Konny, the college’s treasurer.

Taxing bodies in Illinois make their levy requests to the county based on what they need and the equalized assessed value of property within the district. The board acted to accept the levy in a 6-0 vote with one absent after a levy hearing. The college could have levied a maximum of 1.7 percent, the consumer price index, but Konny said levying to the max was not necessary. “We have a calculation we

go through that helps us determine what our levy is,” Konny said. “The purpose of levying more than what we collect is to make sure we are capturing enough, primarily from new property that comes on the tax rolls. There is not a lot of new property coming on the rolls. We feel a 1 percent increase … will levy to our full authority under the tax cap.” The college district covers 360 square miles over five counties and 33 municipalities,

including St. Charles. Its equalized assessed valuation is $10.6 billion. Of that, $60 million is from new construction, Konny said. The slight increase to taxpayers reflects what a cost-effective value Elgin Community College is, Konny said. “Any community college offers such exceptional value to residents, as well as a great education,” Konny said. “I personally am the product of a community college. That is where I started.”

FOX LAKE: 5-1 VOTE ON ORDINANCE

Fox Lake Village Board approves domestic chickens By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com FOX LAKE – Nearly a year after rejecting an ordinance that would have allowed some residents to raise hens, the Fox Lake Village Board changed its mind. In a 5-1 vote Tuesday evening, the board approved an ordinance that allows those

living on plots zoned single-family residential to raise hens if they obtain a $50 permit, up to four on lots less than an acre and up to eight on larger lots. The ordinance has some minor changes from when it was rejected in a 4-2 vote in January, including increasing the required square footage per hen for the coop,

changing a complete prohibition on the slaughter of hens on the property to no outdoor slaughter, and eliminating the explicit prohibition on the sale of eggs. However, it wasn’t so much the changes in the proposed ordinance as the changes on the board that heralded the ordinance’s passage.

An election in April put then-Trustee Donny Schmit – one of the two trustees who voted in favor of the original ordinance – into the village presidency and brought in three new trustees, all of them from his party’s slate. “I was for it, and everyone that ran with me on my slate were with me,” Schmit said. “We were all for it. We didn’t

I just think it’s one more thing that will cause us problems. We have enough trouble trying to get people to clean up their yards.”

think it was any detriment to the village. There won’t be any roosters, no outside slaughter, and we’ve got regulations on the cages.” Only one of the four trustees who voted against original ordinance remains on the Village Board, Trustee Nancy Koske, who voted against the proposal again on Tuesday. Koske did not return a call

DISTRICT 2

D-2 releases survey on grade-level centers By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com RICHMOND – Some school districts like District 2 send their students to schools based on where they live. Others have all the students in a particular grade attend the same school regardless of where they live. District 2 is looking for parent, resident and staff feedback on the idea of switching to the second model, establishing what are called grade-level centers for its two elementary schools. A survey will be available on the district’s website, www.nippersinkdistrict2.org, until Dec. 20. The survey will be used by a steering committee and its subcommittees, which are charged with looking into existing research, assessing the feasibility in terms of cost, transportation and instructional programs and identifying possible issues, Superintendent Dan Oest said. The committees are made up of parents, staff, school board members and administrators. They were created after

the idea of grade-level centers surfaced during a discussion of board goals in 2012. The steering committee’s meetings are not open to the public because they are administrative committees as opposed to school board committees, which would be subject to the Open Meetings Act, Oest said. The steering committee does, however, submit quarterly reports to the school board and will present its findings to the board as early as next fall. The board will then decide whether to move forward with the idea. “We do want to be certain that people know this is not a done deal,” Oest said. “It’s an exploration.” Oest declined to comment on what triggered the idea, saying he couldn’t speak for the board but added the board wanted to know whether grade-level centers were a better structure for the district, and if it made sense for the district to move in that direction. School board President Bert Irslinger did not return a call for comment Wednesday or Thursday.

Program’s goal is to help students find an outlet Village will spend • CAB Continued from page B1 “It’s only going to the grocery store,” she said Thursday. “I said, ‘No, we’ll fund it.’ ” During the Life Connections program, which helps young adults transition to a life after school, students engross themselves in the surrounding community, interning with area organizations and applying for and – with luck – finding jobs. They also learn life skills like planning, shopping for and cooking meals. Thursday, they made macaroni and cheese from scratch and invited Tomasello to a classroom lunch as a thank you.

“This is kind of our celebration every week,” DeGrassi said. Students grated and chopped Swiss cheese late Thursday morning. Sami Gomez, 20, wheeled to a counter and pressed the grey plastic button of an electric chopper while classmate Mackenzie Pruden, 21, held it steady. “Everything,” Pruden said later. That’s Pruden’s favorite meal the class has made this year: everything. “I liked the mashed potatoes,” Gomez said. “Thanksgiving.” Students shoveled elbow macaroni noodles into a steaming pot of the melted cheese and milk, then mixed in broccoli. They spread it into casse-

role pans, topped with bread crumbs, and baked it at 375 degrees. Ding. Time to eat. When the students exit the program, the idea is to find them an outlet. Many hope to find work in some capacity – paid, if possible – but finding something to occupy time and provide a sense of fulfillment is just as important. The life skills program looks to set students up with those opportunities while helping students prepare for a more independent future. “Once they’re done with school, they’re done,” DeGrassi said. “So we have to get them prepared.” The students have been as affected by a faulty job mar-

$25,000 on studies

ket as anyone, said Nancy Schuette, another of the program’s teachers. She made a rough estimate that about a quarter of graduating students make post-graduation work arrangements. A few of the 10 or so students in DeGrassi’s class Thursday have jobs. One works at a local bakery. Another commutes to Crystal Lake. A third works at Papa Murphy’s. “I would say these guys are excellent workers,” said Schuette, who splits her time between Woodstock North and McHenry County College – where students in more independent tiers of the program go. “They’re always so willing to give their best.”

• HUNTLEY Continued from page B1 an extended Kreutzer Road, Johnson said. But officials did include some pet projects in the 2014 capital budget. The village plans to spend $25,000 on studies to help officials pinpoint a location for a Metra train station. Johnson has said a commuter train station is a long-term goal that could be completed by the early 2020s. Village trustees decided not to bankroll a special census count until 2015 be-

cause anticipated residential development after the new year could add to the village’s population, Johnson said. Additional design work on a westerly Reed Road extension also won’t happen in 2014 until officials have a better construction timetable, he said. In related business, board members officially approved a $3.8 million property tax levy that remained unchanged from November, when the board narrowly agreed to hold the levy flat for the third consecutive year.

Because the area lacked fire hydrants, several other departments were called in to battle the blaze, fire officials said. The frigid temperatures also caused some issues for firefighters transporting water to the scene. Firefighters from Union, Huntley, Marengo, Crystal Lake, Cary, Richmond, Fox Lake, McHenry, Nunda, Wonder Lake, Wauconda, Spring Grove, Hebron and Algonquin assisted on the call. No firefighters were hurt during the incident.

RICHMOND-BURTON VOLLEYBALL

Frantti named Gatorade Illinois Player of the Year Senior says she is ‘shocked’ by news By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com Richmond-Burton senior Ali Frantti received a text with some unexpected news around lunch time Thursday. Frantti checked her cellphone

to find a congratulatory message from Penn State assistant volleyball coach Kaleena Davidson. Frantti learned from that text she had been selected as the Gatorade Illinois Volleyball Player of the Year. Frantti, a 6-footAli Frantti 2 hitter who signed with Penn State last month, recorded 603 kills, 270 digs, 99 service aces and 84 blocks, with a .540 kill percentage

Online Check out the video highlights of Thursday night’s McHenry at Jacobs wrestling match at McHenryCountySports.com. this season for the 23-14 Rockets. She recently was named Northwest Herald Player of the Year for the second straight year. The Gatorade award caught Frantti off guard. “I was pretty shocked,” Frantti

said. “I didn’t really expect to get this or anything. It’s such an honor, I couldn’t believe it. The state of Illinois has such great players and to be recognized is a complete honor. So many girls I look up to have won this.” Frantti helped R-B to a Class 3A state runner-up finish as a junior with a 37-5 record. Area coaches rank her at the top of the list of players who have come through the McHenry County area. Former Cary-Grove hitter

Kelly Lamberti, who plays at Ohio University, received the Gatorade award for Illinois for the 2010-11 school year. The Gatorade award goes to an athlete who displays excellence in academic achievement and exemplary character on and off the court. Frantti was selected to the American Volleyball Coaches Association first team and also was a two-time All-State selection. She was the No. 2-ranked player in the nation by PrepVolleyball.com.

BOYS SWIMMING SEASON PREVIEW

BEARS INSIDER Tom Musick

Mission to find dirt on QB fails

Joe Cyganowski for Shaw Media

Jacobs co-op senior Alex Reinbrecht swims the fly in the 200 medley during the 34th annual Saint Viator High School Swimming Invitational on Wednesday in Arlington Heights. Reinbrecht qualified for the state meet in his first three seasons and looks primed to do so again as his times already are at, or near, the state qualifying standards.

READY TO TAKE NEXT STEP Reinbrecht trying to take pressure off himself to reach goal of top 5 at state By PATRICK MASON pmason@shawmedia.com

W

hen last year’s boys swimming season came to an end in February, Jacobs co-op coach Rick Andresen wrote something in his notes that he referred to at the start of this season. “I wrote no rest before the state meet because I think he might have had too much rest,” Andresen said of

swimmer Alex ReinInside brecht. “He’s going to go keep swimming all the Team way up until the meet preview this time.” capsules on Reinbrecht qualified Page C3. for the state meet in his first three seasons and looks primed to do so again as his times already are at, or near, the state qualifying standards. But although the senior is familiar with

the meet, he hasn’t improved on his times that got him there and faced early exits when he didn’t qualify for the finals. And with only this season left to realize his goals of making the finals and finishing in the top five, he plans to attack his swims and practices this year with a lighter attitude in hopes of overcoming his shortcomings on the state’s biggest stage. “I’ve been there every year but I’ve always not got it done,” the area’s top distance swimmer said. “One year it was an overtaper, and other years I had other excuses. This year I want to get up and go my senior year and make the most of it.”

The senior has been swimming for 13 years, since he was 5, and he remembered how much fun he had at that age. But when he got to high school, he ended up putting too much pressure on himself and faltered in big meets even though the talent was there. “I’ve learned that if I think about it too much I don’t do too well,” he said. “So I just want to have fun and relax and not be so uptight. If I relax and just get up and race and put my heart into it I end up doing really well. If I look at it like a job and stress, then I fall apart.”

LAKE FOREST – Let’s get real. Deep down inside, Bears quarterback Josh McCown must have been fuming mad. He must have been punching walls. He must have been swearing up a storm. Because all of this Mr. Humble Teammate stuff made for great sound bites on TV, but there was no way a millionaire quarterback possibly could be this gracious and selfless. You win NFC player Josh McCown of the week and you get benched for Jay Cutler the very next day, and you smile and shrug it off as the best Next decision for the team? at Cleveland, Please. Not noon Sunday, buying it. FOX, AM-780, The time 105.9-FM had come to discover the dirt on McCown from inside of the Bears’ locker room. “Any dirt?” receiver Earl Bennett said. “Nothing, man.” “None,” right tackle Jordan Mills said. “I like to say Josh is like the white version of me.” “That’s the real deal, man,” offensive lineman Eben Britton said. “There’s no dirt.” Whatever. We all know the saying: If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Both on and off of the field, McCown seems too good to be true. He stepped in for an injured Cutler and set a team record with three consecutive games with 300-plus passing yards. And once the Bears cleared Cutler to play, McCown stepped aside without complaint. “I understand my role on this team,” McCown said. “It’s the backup quarterback. So, that being said, if Jay is healthy, he’s ready to go. I’ll support him and help him as much as I can.” Barf.

8SPORTS SHORTS Cubs send Bogusevic to Marlins for Ruggiano LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – The Cubs obtained the right-handed outfield bat they needed, acquiring Justin Ruggiano from the Miami Marlins for lefty swinging Brian Bogusevic. The deal was announced at baseball’s winter meetings Thursday. Ruggiano, who turns 32 in April, has played parts of five big league seasons with Tampa Bay (2007-08, 2011) and Miami (2012-13). He hit a career-high 18 homers in 472 at-bats for Miami last year. He’s a .251 hitter for his career. In 317 games, he has 37 homers and 109 RBIs. The Cubs had left-handers Nate Schierholtz and Ryan Sweeney in the outfield, making Bogusevic available for trades. Bogusevic, who turns 30 in February, hit .273 with six homers and 16 RBI in 47 games last year. In 299 games over four years Bogusevic has 17 homers and 62 RBIs with a .273 average.

BEARS NOTES

Cutler to start against Cleveland Briggs practices, might return for Eagles game By KEVIN FISHBAIN kfishbain@shawmedia.com LAKE FOREST – The players are the same, but Jay Cutler is inheriting a better offense as he retakes the reins Sunday in Cleveland. Bears coach Marc Trestman made it official Thursday that Cutler will start against the Browns for the first time since suffering a high ankle sprain Nov. 10. As superb as Josh McCown has been in Cut-

ler’s place, the players around him also have improved. “Jay was handling this offense very, very well when he was playing. We were growing at the time, we were learning more about ourselves,” Trestman said. “We’re more evolved around Jay than we were when Jay played the last time.” The offensive line, with two rookies and four new players, keeps getting better, as Trestman singled out that group for getting a chance to be together longer. The offense also has benefitted from Trestman getting used to his players. “I think [Trestman] for the last month has really got a bead and got a feel for what he likes to call, what we’re running

well, what we feel comfortable with, what the offensive line likes in the running game,” Cutler said. “[Aaron Kromer]’s done a good job of mixing that stuff up. … Cleveland is a tough team; we’re going to have to get ready for them.” Cutler, Jay Cutler from the sideline, saw a positive impact in the run game from the improving offensive line when McCown was under center. “[The offensive line] is playing exceptionally well. I think (Matt) Forte is doing everything well – blocking, run-

ning the ball, catching the ball out of the backfield,” Cutler said. “He’s kind of making it all go for us.” The stats back it up, too, and though some can look at it as a result of McCown’s play, the Bears’ brass points to the evolving offense. When taking into account Cutler’s seven starts, plus the first half of the Redskins game, the Bears averaged 94.9 yards a game and 4.1 yards a carry. In McCown’s five starts and the second half in Washington, the ground game averaged 137.3 yards a contest and 5.1 yards a touch. “I think our offense is moving in the right direction as a whole – blocking, running,

Michael Jordan shoes auctioned for $104K SALT LAKE CITY – Michael Jordan’s shoes from the famous flu game of the 1997 NBA Finals were sold for more than $100,000 in an online auction Thursday. The Nike Air Jordan XII shoes were owned by a Utah Jazz ball boy who befriended Jordan when the Bulls visited Salt Lake City. Jordan was playing with what he thought was the flu, but still led the Bulls to a key victory in the NBA Finals. Preston Truman has said he asked for Jordan’s shoes after the game. He kept them locked in a safe-deposit box at a Utah bank for 15 years. He turned down an $11,000 offer for the size-13 shoes from a collector the next season. Thursday’s sale after several weeks of bidding was first reported by ESPN.com. The collector wasn’t identified. Online bidding started at $5,000 before soaring to $104,765 when bidding was closed, said Michael Russek, operations director for Grey Flannel Auctions in Westhampton, N.Y. Truman was “thrilled” and “really happy with the overall number,” Russek said Thursday. “He has no crazy plans other than paying off his college tuition.”

Rodgers still holding out hope he’ll play Sunday GREEN BAY, Wis. – Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers’ checklist for playing Sunday has two primary items on it: taking the majority of first-team snaps in practice Friday, and getting good results from a scan on his healing left collarbone. If both those things happen, Rodgers could be back under center for the first time since breaking his collarbone Nov. 4 against the Bears. Asked Thursday if he is holding out hope of playing Sunday, Rodgers paused before replying, “Yes.”

Cooks ND’s D-coordinator for Pinstripe Bowl SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said Kerry Cooks will serve as defensive coordinator for the Fighting Irish through the Pinstripe Bowl after Bob Diaco was named head coach at UConn. Cooks served as co-defensive coordinator and cornerbacks coach the past two seasons. He has been on the staff at Notre Dame since Kelly arrived in 2010, starting as outside linebackers coach. He played with Diaco at Iowa and played in the NFL for Minnesota, Green Bay, Atlanta and Jacksonville.

Tiger Woods’ half-brother accused of making threat PHOENIX – The half-brother of Tiger Woods was arrested Thursday in Phoenix for allegedly making a false bomb threat at the government building where he works. Phoenix police said 58-year-old Earl Dennison Woods Jr. is accused of calling in the threat at the Department of Economic Security building about 8:30 a.m. Thursday. – Wire reports

catching, throwing,” Kromer said. “So, as we progress and continue to grow as an offense, I think that we’ll all have more success as time goes.” Briggs returns: Lance Briggs practiced for the first time since his shoulder injury Oct. 20 in Washington, but was limited. Trestman said he is not any more optimistic about Briggs’ chances to play Sunday, but this is a positive sign for a return for the Eagles game. Browns injuries: Cleveland running back Willis McGahee did not practice for the second day in a row (concussion, knee) and is not expected to play Sunday. Chris Ogbonnaya would get the start.

A group of Bears defenders chase Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray (29) during the first half of Monday night’s game at Soldier Field. The Bears are 32nd in the NFL defending the run, allowing 157 yards a game on the ground.

Run ‘D’ the real issue, not the QB Argue all you want about whether Jay Cutler or Josh McCown should be starting at quarterback this week or the rest of the season for the Bears, it doesn’t matter. Either player is more than capable of executing Marc Trestman’s offense well enough to earn the Bears victories over the Cleveland Browns, Philadelphia Eagles and Green Bay Packers. As for the future, worry about that tomorrow. If we’ve learned anything about the NFL in recent years, it’s all about getting into the playoffs. Wild cards and six seeds are as, or more, likely to go to, and even win, Super Bowls these days as anybody else. The problem right now is it’s going to take a small miracle for the Bears to make the playoffs, no matter who the quarterback is. The problem is the run defense. The Bears are 32nd in the NFL defending the run, allowing 157 yards a game on the ground. The New England Patriots are 31st, allowing 135.8 yards a game.

BEARS INSIDER Hub Arkush That’s a problem. Dating to 1990, when the NFL went to the 12-team playoff format, of the 276 teams that have made the playoffs, only one, the 2006 Indianapolis Colts, have finished last in the league in run defense. More on them in a moment. When you can’t stop the run, you can’t control the clock. When you can’t control the clock, your opponent has more time on the field and a better chance to score points. It’s a pretty simple formula. So what can the Bears do about it? Over the next three months, I’m afraid not much. Trestman and defensive coordinator Mel Tucker have discussed the Bears’ run defense woes at length, but the realities of their positions prohibit them from acknowledging the scary truth. The players they’re putting on the field right now just aren’t good enough to get it done.

Trestman and Tucker talk first about run fits. The basic explanation is each defensive player is assigned a gap, which they are expected to occupy, and when all the gaps are clogged, there is nowhere for the runners to go. That is sometimes described as gap integrity. A big part of the Bears’ problem is some of the players on defense still aren’t always sure which gaps they’re supposed to be in. At other times, they get there but don’t stay, or they’re defeated by blockers in their gaps. Trestman and Tucker have said in recent weeks the run fits have gotten much better. The players are in the right gaps more and more. The fair question to ask is why these players still are learning which gaps they belong in. It’s one thing to be able to defeat blocks and make tackles in the gap, and another thing to know when the play has moved past your gap and be able to move with the ballcarrier and make a play. Those are traits that come with experience and it does take rookies and other

young players some time on the field, playing at the increased speed of the NFL, to get it down. Rarely do they become so proficient you end up with a Lance Briggs or Charles Tillman. But the fact that some Bears defenders still are learning which gaps to occupy is alarming. It suggests that, at some point, some of the Bears defenders aren’t going to get it down. In fairness to Phil Emery and Trestman, another offseason to add more players is not unreasonable. But, in the meantime, it leaves this season’s Bears as a 276-to-1 shot, based on their run defense, to make the playoffs. One piece of good news is that the only other team to defeat those odds, the ’06 Colts, won the Super Bowl. Of course, there’s bad news there, too. They beat the Bears to win those rings.

Something. You know who else has tattoos? Prisoners. “It’s pretty [great],” Britton said. Only, Britton didn’t say great. He said a word that McCown never would say. It started with “bad” and ended with another description for “donkey.” Armed with this information, it was time to grill the veteran quarterback. McCown’s group interview already had ended, and if he were like most other players on the team, he would have turned down any additional requests. But he stopped what he was doing and politely agreed to answer

a few more questions. What a mistake. The tattoo, Josh. We know about it. Are you going to fess up, or what? McCown lifted up his right sleeve to reveal a tattoo of a large cross on his right shoulder. Inside of the cross was the face of a lion. “It’s just my faith,” McCown said. “It’s a cross with a lion in it, and the lion represents Christ. And, obviously, the cross. “As a follower of Christ, that’s what is central to my faith. So, that’s all it is.” It was time to stop digging. McCown really was a nice guy. Fiddlesticks.

DENVER – Peyton Manning wanted more rest. He got plenty Thursday night thanks to Philip Rivers and a San Diego defense that slowed down Manning and handed the Broncos an unexpected and harmful loss. Rivers threw two touchdown passes to Keenan Allen and kept the Chargers’ offense on the field for nearly 39 minutes in a 27-20 stunner over the Broncos, whose easier road to the AFC West title and top seeding in the conference got an unexpected jolt. Disorganized on defense and never able to crank things up on offense, the Broncos gained 13 yards on the 13 plays they ran after taking a 10-3 lead late in the first quarter. That covered four fruitless drives during which they went threeand-out three times and picked up a total of one first down. “The longer you keep the ball and the less he has it, the better off you’re going to be,” said Chargers coach Mike McCoy, Manning’s former offensive coordinator. Rivers finished 12 for 20 for 166 yards in improving to 28-6 in December. Ryan Matthews matched his season high with 127 yards on 29 carries. After Denver’s long dry spell on offense, San Diego led 24-10, and though the Broncos (11-3) had overcome double-digit deficits four times this season to win, it wasn’t happening this time. They pulled within seven and Manning got the ball on the Denver 3 with 5:50 left. He moved the Broncos 30 yards in two plays with the help of a penalty. But the Chargers’ maligned defense produced some pass rush and forced a bad throw, which linebacker Thomas Keiser picked off at the Denver 33. The Chargers (7-7) got a field goal to go up 10. Denver answered with a field goal but couldn’t recover the onside kick and the Broncos lost to an AFC West foe for the first time in 11 games.

HARVARD WRESTLING

Former Hornets coach Sciacca dies By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com John Sciacca, who took Harvard’s fledgling wrestling program into prominence in the 1960s, died Thursday at age 90. Sciacca coached Harvard for 17 seasons, in which time the Hornets were 194-69 in dual meets. Current Harvard wrestling coach Tim Haak said Sciacca, who still lived

in Harvard, had been in poor health recently. Visitation will be from 3 to 5 p.m. Monday at Saunders & McFarlin Funeral Home; the funeral will be at 5. In the 55 years of Harvard’s wrestling program, there have been only five coaches. Don Hardle coached in 1959, the first year, with Chuck Riker coaching the next two. Sciacca then took over and eventually made the Illinois

Wrestling Coaches and Officials Association Hall of Fame. Dick Holtfreter coached nine years and also was inducted into the IWCOA Hall of Fame. Haak, now in his 27th and final season, also is in the IWCOA. “Those are the guys (Sciacca and Holtfreter),” Haak said. “That was Harvard wrestling, those two.” Harvard’s Sciacca-Holt-

freter Invitational Tournament, named in their honor, is one of the best in northern Illinois and will take place Dec. 20-21. Sciacca won his first district title as a coach in 1965 and had his first individual state qualifier, his son Jim, in 1967. He had 18 state qualifiers and nine placewinners in his tenure. Sciacca was named the Class A Coach of the Year for the state in 1978.

McHenry Coach: Craig Fowles (12th season) Top returners: Matt Peck, sr.; Miles Lucas, sr.; Trey Schopen, so.; Kevin Braun, so.; Jackson Smith, so.; Garrett Floden, jr.; Josh Frost, so.; Noah Matthys, so. Top new swimmers: Chase Wachendorf, fr. Worth noting: Fowles said this is the best complete group of swimmers he ever has coached. “I know they have the dedication to [be great],” Fowles said. “It’s a metter if they can pull everything together. They have high expectations for themselves.” – Compiled by Patrick Mason, pmason@shawmedia.com

Thunder don’t come unglued By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com

Joe Cyganowski for Shaw Media

Jacobs co-op senior Alex Reinbrecht swims the 200 Individual Medley during the 34th annual Saint Viator High School Swimming Invitational on Wednesday in Arlington Heights.

Senior’s training has been nonstop since last season • REINBRECHT Continued from page C1 Once last season ended, Reinbrecht hopped right back into the pool and hasn’t stopped training since. He also bulked up a bit over the summer months and focused on sprints to help him get more power out of his stroke, which will help during his distance swims. He also started doing yoga to stay limber and lean, which is key for distance swimmers. On Wednesday, Andresen got a good look at how his team and Reinbrecht would respond to swimming tired during the St. Viator Invitational. The coach put the team through a grueling workout the night before and liked how

his team responded. With the swim season under way, Andresen has been looking for ways to get his the team in top shape by the end of the season, though limited practice times have proved to make that tough, which is why Reinbrecht’s own offseason work has put him ahead of the pack. “Because of our limited practice times, he really doesn’t have that great a base to rest from come postseason,” Andresen said. “We’re only able to get in about 5,000 yards a day when other distance swimmers in the state are able to get in 10,000 yards a day between morning and afternoon practice. “But he’s a natural and he has a lot of natural ability, and that really helps him.”

WOODSTOCK – Woodstock North does not intend to play without guards Josh Jandron and Junior Ortiz for extended periods of time very often. It just would not be a sound approach for the Thunder, although with early foul trouble Thursday it could not be avoided. “They’re the glue to this team handling the basketball,” North coach Steve Ryan said. “Both can run point, and without one of the two on the floor, we struggle handling the basketball.” North managed to make it through most of the second quarter without its starting backcourt with quality shot selection and North Boone’s cold shooting. Then, with Jandron and Ortiz back in the second half, the Thunder cruised to a 76-60 nonconference boys basketball victory. “That’s the first time we have been out at the same time,” Ortiz said. “They did a really good job handling it; it was someone’s time to step up.” North (2-5) pushed the lead to 20 in the second quarter, but the Vikings (2-4) cut the lead to 38-27 by halftime. “I was mad at myself for the first half, and in the third quarter kept my head and had to do something for the team,” said Jandron, who had seven of his 10 points in that quarter. “In the third quar-

ter everyone was back on the floor and we clicked.” The Thunder scored 24 points in the third quarter and got the lead back to 20 with transition baskets and free throws. North shot 48.1 percent (26 of 54) from the field. “We didn’t get to run our offense that much, it’s the style of play [North Boone] forced at us,” Ryan said. “It makes you play up-tempo. We did have some good moments, we made the easy shots and got to the basket.” Forward Nick Herscha led the Thunder with 21 points and 13 rebounds. Reserve forward Chris Niese added a career-high 19 points and took over point guard for a good portion of the second quarter. “In the first half, we had a little trouble with the point guard situation, but we handled it well and brought it back in the second half,” Niese said. Tre Williams led North Boone with 16 points. The Vikings substitute five players at a time every few minutes and use full-court pressure most of the game. But they shot 32.8 percent for the game and only 22.5 (9 of 40) in the first half. “We continue to crash the boards and get offensive rebounds like crazy, we need to reward ourselves with buckets,” Vikings coach Richard Williams said. “I Lathan Goumas – lgoumas@shawmedia.com was pleased with our rebounding Woodstock North guard Junior Ortiz goes up for a layup effort, we need to work on finish- during the first half of Thursday night’s game against North ing at the rim.” Boone in Woodstock.

The Associated Press LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Baseball officials are up front about this: They want to ban home plate collisions to guard their investments. Minnesota’s Joe Mauer, a former MVP and three-time batting champion, is less than halfway through a $184 million, eight-year contract. He was limited to 75 games at catcher this year in a concussion-shortened season. Buster Posey, another MVP and batting champ, has a $167 million, nine-year deal. San Francisco wants to ensure that he doesn’t have another horrific injury like the one that ended his 2011 season. That’s why Major League Baseball’s rules committee voted this week to prohibit runners from plowing into catchers. The rule will take effect next season if the players’ association agrees, and in 2015 if the union doesn’t. “It’s a great change. We protect our assets,” Los Angeles Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto said Thursday as the winter meetings ended. “Some of the things we’ve seen happen in the recent past – Buster Posey, concussions with Joe Mauer, Yadier Molina getting blown up, they are some of the best players in the game. They mean so much to their team – the financial investments involved. And more importantly, the health of the individual.” Boston’s David Ross, Detroit’s

JOHNNY LATTNER: 1953 HEISMAN TROPHY WINNER

Lone Illinois-born winner cheering on Lynch By DAN McGRATH dmcgrath@suntimes.com The only Illinois-born Heisman Trophy winner believes in sharing the hardware with anybody representing a cause worthy of some Heisman support. Johnny Lattner, a Fenwick High graduate who was born in Chicago and raised in Oak Park, won the 1953 Heisman as an all-purpose back on a Notre Dame team that went 9-1 and finished second to Maryland in the wire-service polls that then determined college football’s national champion. For years, the iconic statue occupied a place of honor in the restaurant Lattner operated at Clark and Madison in downtown Chicago. But

Johnny Lattner’s Steakhouse and Johnny Lattner’s Heisman were destroyed by a fire in 1968. The Downtown Athletic Club provided a replacement award, and it went back on display when Lattner’s reopened on the ground floor of Marina City. But after Lattner sold the business in 1972, the trophy no longer was needed to attract customers, so Lattner decided to put it to work on behalf of good causes. “I’d be approached about a speaking engagement, and people would say, ‘Can you bring the trophy?’ – it seemed like it was a bigger deal than I was,” Lattner recalled. “I’m not sure it was my idea, but since the thing has such value, we decided we should put it to good use.” Special Olympics fundraiser? Mr.

Heisman will be there. Need an attraction to boost interest in a youth sports event? Book him. Bingo Night at your church or school? Let’s talk. Maggie Skiver, one of Lattner’s four daughters, is the trophy’s booking agent, with input from Lattner, now 81. The statue stays with her Johnny Lattner when it’s not on the road. There’s no formal application process – ”It’s pretty much first come, first served,” Skiver said – but bachelor-party outings to gentlemen’s clubs need not apply. “We try to make sure it’s for a good cause that involves a charity,” Lattner said. “I don’t know where it is half the time, but I don’t worry

about it. Maggie knows what I want. She goes a good job.” Lattner and the Heisman appeared at a banquet for St. Christina grammar school’s Southwest Conference football champions in Chicago’s Mount Greenwood neighborhood 10 years ago. Among the honorees who touched the trophy: 12-year-old Jordan Lynch, Northern Illinois’ record-setting dual-threat quarterback from Mt. Carmel High School who will be in New York this weekend as a Heisman finalist. Lattner will attend the ceremony and will be pulling for his fellow Catholic Leaguer, even if it means relinquishing his status as his home state’s only Heisman winner. “He’s a great kid and a great player,” Lattner said. “What a story that

would be, a kid from Northern Illinois wins the Heisman.” Although Lynch has emerged from mid-major obscurity, that hardly was the case for Lattner. With Frank Leahy expanding a Knute Rockne-created brand, Notre Dame was the nation’s pre-eminent college team in the pre-TV, post-World War II era, producing five Heisman winners in a 13year period. Lattner was the fourth, after Angelo Bertelli (1943), Johnny Lujack (’47) and Leon Hart (’49). And he was a deserving recipient, compiling 3,095 all-purpose yards in three varsity seasons as a runner, receiver and kick returner, a school record that stood until Vagas Ferguson surpassed it in 1979. He also intercepted 13 passes as a ball-hawking defensive back and scored 20 touchdowns.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL AWARDS

HEISMAN TROPHY

Winston, Donald, McCarron big winners

Apprenticeship precedes stardom Lynch learns under Harnish before getting his chance By STEVE NITZ snitz@shawmedia.com

By KYLE HIGHTOWER The Associated Pressrs LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Jameis Winston walked away with another major award Thursday night, the latest national prize to put on his mantel. He might want to save a spot for the Heisman Trophy. The Florida State star headlined a big night for the Atlantic Coast Conference, winning the Davey O’Brien Award as the country’s top quarterback at the annual College Football Awards Show at Disney. Winston also won the Walter Camp player of the year award in a separate announcement. The redshirt freshman, who led the top-ranked Seminoles to a 13-0 record and a berth in the BCS national championship game against Auburn next month, said he continues to be humbled by every accolade he’s received in recent weeks. “It feels good. It’s an honor just to be here,” Winston said. “I’m just glad to bring them back to Florida State.” Winston hopes to become the fourth O’Brien Award winner in a row to take home the Heisman in the same year. He would join current NFL quarterbacks Cam Newton (2010) and Robert Griffin III (2011), as well as Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel in 2012. Now that a sexual assault complaint against him in Tallahassee, Fla., has been closed without charges being filed, Winston is the overwhelming favorite to win college football’s highest honor Saturday night in New York. Several players shared the hardware Thursday, though. Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron won the Maxwell Award for player of the year, and Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald took home two big prizes: the Chuck Bednarik Award for defensive player of the year and the Outland Trophy as most outstanding interior lineman. The ACC led all conferences with four winners out of the nine awards that were presented – two for Donald, one for Winston, and the Doak Walker Award that went to Andre Williams of Boston College as the nation’s best running back.

Northern Illinois’ coaching staff had to get Jordan Lynch on the field. Some way, somehow. Former coach Jerry Kill and his assistants saw the athleticism Lynch provided. They knew he’d be able to help them out in 2010, when Lynch was a redshirt freshman after sitting out all of 2009. The problem was, the Huskies already had junior Chandler Harnish under center, and he was no slouch by any means. But the coaching staff figured why not put Lynch on the field and give Harnish a break? Lynch, a finalist for the Heisman Trophy, which will be presented Saturday in New York City, had only one FBS offer to play quarterback, and it was with the Huskies. If it didn’t work out, Lynch had the opportunity to move to safety. However, Kill was not ready to make that decision three years ago. “I think he could be special. There’s something there. I’ve got to see what this spring, but there’s something there,” Kill told Shaw Media in the spring of 2010. “Our defensive staff will tell you that. I’m excited about watching him play. It’s easy to do it as a freshman and he didn’t get tons of reps, but the reps he got, he can make some plays.”

Lynch, who started the 2010 season behind Harnish and DeMarcus Grady on the depth chart, was used because the staff thought he was too athletic not to be on the field. It was also an opportunity to give Harnish a break here and there. Lynch got his first carries of his Huskies career against Akron on Oct. 2, 2010, recording only a yard on two carries. But a week later against Buffalo, Lynch had 96 rushing yards on two carries, including a 90-yard touchdown scamper, the first of a career that has produced 98 total touchdowns with one game remaining. Lynch was a nice complement to Harnish that season, running 31 times for 362 yards. “My initial thought was, tremen-

dous runner, physical,” said Jim Zebrowski, who was Lynch’s position coach in 2010 and has been on Kill’s staff at Minnesota the past three seasons. “What he’s doing now, you knew he could. You never knew to what extreme. He’s off the charts right now.” In 2011, Harnish still was the starter for NIU and went on to win the Vern Smith Leadership Award as the Mid-American Conference MVP, an honor Lynch has earned the past two seasons. Lynch spelled Harnish at times once again, finishing the year with 45 carries for 246 yards and three touchdowns. He also was 15 of 20 passing for 166 yards and a touchdown. The Huskies, blessed with multiple options, had a good situation

Lynch: Money would be nice, but NIU has done plenty for me • LYNCH Continued from page C1 “At the end of the day, you’re exposing that name to potentially millions of readers and viewers and that’s pretty powerful,” said Eric Wright, the president and executive director of research at Joyce Julius and Associates in Ann Arbor, Mich. Wright’s firm tracks media exposure impressions, whether it be on TV, in print or online and uses a formula to determine how much money – using traditional advertising methods – would be spent to generate that kind of media attention. Joyce Julius can’t translate its formula into how much in real dollars the university takes in because of the exposure. But between the financial gain coming to the university and the money being made from the sale of signed merchandise, plenty of people – with the exception of the players bringing the attention in the first place – are being compensated financially. Lynch told the Northwest Herald this week it’s something he hasn’t given much thought to. “It would be pretty cool to be paid for some of this stuff – sign autographs and get paid for it,” Lynch said. “But it’s all about giving back.” • • •

Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch looks to pass against Akron on Oct. 12 at Huskie Stadium in DeKalb. Lynch is one of six Heisman Trophy finalists invited to Saturday night’s ceremony along with overwhelming favorite Jameis Winston of Florida State and last year’s winner Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M.

with Lynch and Harnish, who is on the Indianapolis Colts’ practice squad. Zebrowski’s initial observations of Lynch were how competitive he was, and how much he enjoyed playing football, which showed even when Lynch, who obviously had the talent to be the starter, was stuck in a reserve role for two seasons. “We had a great group of kids. Jordan was just as happy if Chandler made a run or if he made a run,” Zebrowski said. “He was so wellcoached and well-raised by his family that [a negative attitude] wasn’t part of his DNA.” Eventually, Lynch got his chance to shine for the Huskies in the GoDaddy.com Bowl against Arkansas State in January 2012. Harnish was sidelined with an ankle injury during the second quarter, and Lynch took the reins for a short period, leading NIU on a 78-yard, go-ahead touchdown drive. Lynch showed off his arm down, going 4 of 4 through the air for 64 yards. The touchdown drive, which gave the Huskies a 14-13 advantage, culminated in a 3-yard touchdown run by Lynch, and the Huskies went on to win, 38-20. It was a sign of things to come when Harnish moved on to the NFL and Lynch was named the starter by Dave Doeren before spring practice in 2012. “It was really beneficial,” Lynch said of his playing experience of 2010 and 2011. “Overall, the experience and getting thrown in live situations, that really helped me. Really had some experience going into the next year and I really knew what to expect.”

Lynch said, because he’s on full scholarship, he feels like NIU has done plenty for him. Wright said that, in the 90 days before last week’s MAC Championship Game, the number of media mentions of Lynch would be similar to that of players such as Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner. Wright’s firm was commissioned to track Gardner’s media exposure and valued it at about $4.5 million a month using traditional advertising pricing models.

For Lynch, who became the subject of an organized Heisman Trophy campaign that began before his senior season, the attention can be a bit overwhelming. “I’m still not used to it,” Lynch said. “It still hasn’t sunk in and it’s kind of surreal. But I never really pay attention to the media stuff – New York Times or anything. This whole Heisman thing hasn’t sunk in and probably won’t for a while.” Since the six Heisman finalists were announced Monday night, Wright’s firm tracked media mentions across the country. As of Wednesday morning, Auburn running back Tre Mason has generated the most media buzz among the finalists, with 5,100 media mentions, while Lynch had earned 1,900 mentions in the week leading up to the Heisman Trophy being awarded Saturday night in New York. Throughout a year when Lynch’s name and uniform number were printed on everything from notebooks to plastic lunch boxes, the third Mid-American Conference player to become a finalist remained as accessible to fans as ever. Despite knowing that some signed items likely would end up on the open marketplace, Lynch said he never concerned himself with how much other people were making off of him. He said he tries to sign one autograph per fan and personalize it, if possible. “I know there’s going to be people out there – no matter how nice they ask – that are going to sell [signed items] out there and I have no part with that,” Lynch said. “I mean, I just sign it to be nice.” NIU associate athletic director Donna Turner said the university does not sponsor autograph-signing events. Charities seeking signed items must go through NIU’s compliance office to obtain the items. Once

given to charities, though, the school has no control over where they go. The eBay listings on two of the items – a team-signed helmet and team-signed pylon – indicated players signatures were collected outside of the NIU locker room after the Huskies’ win over Kent State this season. Three of the sellers with Lynch items currently listed on eBay either did not respond to interview requests by the Northwest Herald or declined to be interviewed. • • • After leading the Huskies to the Orange Bowl last season, Lynch became the subject of “Jordan Lynch For 6,” a marketing campaign that the athletic department spent $9,400 on, Turner said. Turner said money was spent on putting together a website, lunch boxes, notebooks and mailing costs, putting promotional materials into the hands of media members who cover college football. Although the items were sent primarily to media members, Lynch said he got his hands on a couple of the lunch boxes, which were used by his mother and younger brother. Although Turner estimates former NIU quarterback Chandler Harnish did as many media interviews as Lynch has done, it’s been the level of media clientele that have requested time with Lynch that separates the two. Turner said she received two to three requests from national radio stations a week with requests picking up substantially during the month of November. NIU received more than 100 credential requests for the Huskies’ Nov. 13 win over Ball State, when the Huskies clinched the MAC West Division title. Among the national media outlets present: SI.com, ESPN. com, The New York Times, USA Today and others.

The attention given to NIU compares to that of another favorite example of Wright’s of how one player can place a school on a national stage. When Robert Griffin III won the Heisman Trophy in 2011, Baylor University saw the popularity around its football program explode. According to an ESPN.com story, the school spent an estimated $10,000 on Griffin’s Heisman campaign, mailing out football cards pushing the quarterback’s candidacy. The ESPN report said Griffin’s Heisman Trophy resulted in a 10 percent uptick in giving to Baylor’s Bear Foundation while licensing royalties went up 50 percent. The result? Plans for a new $250 million football stadium were announced after Griffin’s Heisman win. “We were still beating the trees for donors and money, and as soon as [the Heisman win] happened, we finalized all our plans for the stadium,” Heath Nielsen, assistant athletics director at Baylor, told ESPN. Although Lynch is not the favorite to leave New York with the Heisman – an award expected to go to Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston – NIU will continue to reap the benefits of Lynch’s legacy. Huskies coach Rod Carey said this week that Lynch’s two seasons at quarterback helped put NIU’s program into the national discussion, where it remained throughout the 2013 season. The exposure paid dividends in recruiting and in ticket sales – something Carey hopes continues once Lynch’s collegiate career ends. “This gets you on a stage where, sometimes, we’re not,” Carey said. “We’ve been fortunate in the last year to be on it, but it gets us on that stage and gets our name out there and that’s a good thing for our university, our students, our community and obviously, in this case, for Jordan.”

“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” STARRING: Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage

PLOT: The dwarves, along with Bilbo Baggins and Gandalf the Grey, continue their quest to reclaim Erebor, their homeland, from Smaug. Bilbo Baggins is in possession of a mysterious and magical ring. RATED: PG-13 for extended sequences of intense fantasy action violence, and frightening images TIME: 2 hours, 41 minutes VERDICT: Sleeping dragons, as we know from our childhood literature, eventually awaken. If they didn’t, there wouldn’t be a story. So it’s hardly news that in the second installment of Peter Jackson’s “Hobbit” trilogy, the dragon rouses from his slumber. What IS news: the franchise wakes up, too. Die-hard fans might disagree, but to many, the first film, last year’s “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” took way too long to get going and then dragged for much of its 169 minutes. “I do believe the worst is behind us,” noted Bilbo Baggins at the end of that film, to which some of us wanted to reply: “Well, we hope so.” “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” is not much shorter – 8 minutes, to be exact – but it feels brisker, lighter, funnier. The characters are more varied, more interesting; We’ll take a comic turn by the entertaining Stephen Fry over another Orc any day. There’s even an added romantic subplot. The whole enterprise, it must be said, involves a huge dollop of cinematic hubris. J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit,” after all, is a book of some 300 pages. With these three films, a prequel to his “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, Jackson devotes about two film minutes to each page. Imagine if they did that with Tolstoy’s “War and Peace.” The movie would have been 40 hours long. On the other hand, the first “Hobbit” installment brought in about $1 billion. So it’s rather beside the point to argue with Jackson’s approach. Happily, “Smaug” is vastly better from the get-go. Instead of a drawn-out intro, we get right to the action, which is of course the quest of Bilbo (Martin Freeman, himself livelier and funnier) and the band of dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (a suitably noble Richard Armitage) to reclaim the kingdom of Erebor, under the Lonely Mountain, from the frightening dragon Smaug. As always, trouble takes many forms: not only the menacing Orcs, but giant spiders with sticky webs, too. Then there are the elves, who come to the rescue at an opportune time but then imprison Bilbo and his mates. (Gandalf – the always grand Ian McKellen – has other business, and leaves for long stretches.) Lee Pace is fun as the campy and authoritarian Thranduil, leader of the elves. His son Legolas (Orlando Bloom, back from “The Lord of the Rings”) is talented as ever with a bow. And he has a love interest: Tauriel, a newly invented character, played with spunky sweetness by Evangeline Lilly. Tauriel, it turns out, has a soft spot for the dwarf Kili, a rather hunky Aidan Turner. (“He’s quite tall for a dwarf,” she says. “But no less ugly,” retorts Legolas.) Bilbo, ever bolder, helps the dwarves escape their jailers in a terrific scene – involving barrels, river rapids, and an endless supply of Orcs – that rivals a Busby Berkeley dance number. (Side note: These dwarves are awfully durable.) Further entertainment comes in Lake-town, led by a greedy Master (the engaging Fry) and his underling Alfrid (Ryan Gage, also fun). It should be noted Jackson has again shot his film at 48-frames-per-second, double the standard speed, to make things look sharper. But this time, the fanfare is gone; critics were not even shown the film at the faster speed. Jackson clearly doesn’t want the technique to dominate the discussion. In any case, it all comes down to the climactic confrontation with the dragon. Unfortunately, the film sags somewhat here. It’s fun to hear Benedict Cumberbatch, as Smaug, hurl seething epithets at Bilbo, and Freeman is at his most pluckily adorable. Still, they really could have shortened this confrontation by a good 20 minutes. But what’s 20 minutes when you’re taking nine hours to tell a story? Onward to the third installment. Jackson is back on track. – The

The Hunger Games: Catching FIre” STARRING: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth PLOT: Katniss Everdeen and Peeta

LOCAL SHOWTIMES Mellark become targets of the Capitol after their victory in the 74th Hunger Games sparks a rebellion in the districts of Panem.

RATED: PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, some frightening images, thematic elements, a suggestive situation and language.

RUNNING TIME: 2 hours, 26 minutes

VERDICT: A considerable upgrade over the first “Hunger Games” movie, “Catching Fire” comes across more like a remake than a sequel. In the adaptation of the second installation in Suzanne Collins’ young adult trilogy, there’s certainly plenty that has changed. Rebellion against the totalitarian rule of President Snow (Donald Sutherland) in the 12 districts of Panem is growing. Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) is now a beloved hero with the weight of celebrity on her shoulders. And Philip Seymour Hoffman, bless him, has found his way into the proceedings. Yet the general plot – a journey from Katniss’ poor hometown of District 12 to a climactic game of human hunting in “the arena,” with high-speed train rides and training sessions in between – is identical to the first “Hunger Games.” More has shuffled behind the camera, and “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is much the better for it. Francis Lawrence (“I Am Legend”) has taken over directing from Gary Ross, whose poor handling of the first film didn’t stop it from becoming a sensation. Lawrence has given the film (the budget was nearly doubled) a more settled environment heavy on greys and a more appropriately grave emotional atmosphere. These are kids being forced to kill other kids, the franchise seems to have realized. “Catching Fire” opens with Katniss back in District 12, haunted by the experiences of her first Hunger Games. There, too, is her flame Gale (Liam Hemsworth), who’s slaving away in the mines. (Hemsworth, a nonentity in both films, makes about as convincing a miner as Ben Stiller’s Zoolander did.) But Katniss’ success in the Hunger Games was partly due to her for-publicity-sake romance with her co-winner Peeta (Josh Hutcherson, who seems about half the height of the screen-dominating Lawrence). President Snow, aware of the puton, insists they keep up the charade to help pacify the uprising. There’s an ironic satire of modern celebrity somewhere in “Catching Fire.” Katniss has become famous only to find it a trap. As her Hunger Games coach Haymitch (Woody Harrelson) says, “You never get off this train.” Lawrence isn’t so different. “The Hunger Games,” along with her more interesting work in “Winter’s Bone” and “Silver Linings Playbook,” has made her an enormous star. She is quite literally “the girl on fire,” as Katniss is nicknamed. When she’s trotted out with Peeta on a victory tour of the 12 districts to “feed the monster” – that is, to distract the masses with their tabloid romance – one can’t help but see “The Hunger Games” as the same kind of diversion. It’s dystopia-lite: a bloody tale of oppression watered down for a PG-13 rating. The act doesn’t work as Snow intended. On the tour, we get glimpses of protesters, emboldened by Katniss, swiftly snuffed out by Storm Trooper-like guards. (Any actual dying in “The Hunger Games” always happens just off screen). With his plotting new adviser (Hoffman, adding a dose of intrigue), Snow announces

Now open

a twist: The next Hunger Games will be fought between former Games winners. He hopes these Hunger Games will reveal – in the reality show broadcast of the event – Katniss as a killer, not a symbol of populist hope. The most pleasing moment in “Catching Fire” comes when these other former Victors – a motley crew of veteran warriors – is introduced. Among the bone-crushing murder professionals is, of all people, Jeffrey Wright. He proves a cunning brainiac. Back are Elizabeth Banks (as the Capitol escort Effie), Lenny Kravitz (as Katniss’ pyrotechnic stylist) and, easily the high point of both movies, Stanley Tucci as the campy broadcast emcee Caesar. Among the newcomers, Sam Claflin, as the arrogant Hunger Games veteran Finnick Odair, has a mischievous charm. But “Catching Fire” is, to be sure, Lawrence’s show. The exaggerated world of “The Hunger Games,” with its cartoonish decadents, teenage Roman gladiators and theatrical allegory, would overwhelm most young actors. But Lawrence (convincingly tormented in this film) has a calm sincerity and steely determinism that cuts through it all. Katniss’ rise is hers, too.. – The Associated Press

“Inside Llewyn Davis” STARRING: Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan and Justin Timberlake. PLOT: The Coen brothers’ latest dark comedy follows a week in the life of a young singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. RATED: R for language including some sexual references. TIME: 1 hour, 45 minutes VERDICT: The Coen brothers pluck at the beatnik scene of the late 1950s and early 1960s. Helmed by long-time Coen collaborator T Bone Burnett, the tunes in this film – which are performed live – bare morbid undertones that correspond with the foremost concepts of the story: poverty, abortion, disappointment and death. It seems we’ll have no problem feeling sorry for Llewyn. He is struggling to make it as a solo artist after his bandmate committed suicide, and his dismal hymns fail to propel him out of dire straits. Unable to afford his own place, he crashes on the couches of friends around town. Yet he’s determined to keep his guitar close by and not sell out. Only the fact that he’s an egotistical jackass makes it impossible to feel solidly empathetic toward him. Indeed, the film is a heavy downer, and its consistent gray-hue enhances the bleakness.

trial America. Scott Cooper, who directed “Crazy Heart” a few years ago, once again evinces a gift for conveying atmosphere, carefully framing and composing his shots to lend “Out of the Furnace” a reserved, even stately, air of dignity. And he knows how to get the best from his actors: Affleck delivers a searing portrayal of a young man

who pushes himself to the punishing physical limit in search of both money and catharsis. Bale’s part may not be as showy, but at least one moment – when Russell hears a pivotal piece of news – could stand the test of time as a mini-master class in the art of screen acting. There are good men in “Out of the Furnace,” as well as bad men, and

Teenager determined to turn Types of breast biopsy vary virtual romance into marriage Dear Abby: My 17-year-old daughter, “Erica,” is planning to marry her 24-year-old boyfriend. I use the term “boyfriend” loosely because their relationship consists entirely of texting, talking on the phone and the Internet. There has been no dating or getting to know each other in person. Erica is intent on marrying this man even though he has lied to her several times in addition to having lied to us. She is planning to attend a four-year college. I’m not sure how to handle this. She hid the relationship from us for more than six months. I realize Erica needs to make her own mistakes, but I’m not sure how to make her understand my very real concern about this. I have raised other children who went through various phases of teenage rebellion, but we were able to reach a general compromise on all types of behavior. However, she is unwilling to discuss the possibility of waiting. Any advice would be appreciated. – Needs Help In

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips her education if she should become pregnant. It may give her a glimpse of exactly what she’s letting herself in for BEFORE the wedding. Of course, the three of you will want to meet as many of his family and friends as possible. Because Erica won’t listen to reason, perhaps SEEING will bring her back down to earth. This also will give you (all) a chance to find out what else her “boyfriend” may have been lying about, including his age. Dear Abby: What do I do about my husband’s cruelty to our cat? My children love “Miss Kitty,” but their dad kicks her and terrorizes the poor little thing to the point where I don’t think I can protect her any longer, especially when I’m not home. I have told the kids that Dad is wrong and not to be like him, but I’m afraid eventually they may think it’s OK to mistreat animals. What should I do? – California Ani-

Virginia Dear Needs Help: If Erica were my daughter, I’d suggest because this relationship is so serious, it’s time you both paid a visit to her intended. Assuming her father is in the picture, he should be there, too. The subject of who will be paying for college should be discussed, and whether Erica will be able to continue

mal Lover Dear Animal Lover: Find Miss Kitty a good home ASAP! Your husband appears to have sociopathic tendencies. Does he exhibit them in any other ways? A man who mistreats animals also might abuse children if they should get in his way or he is in a

bad mood. Of course, your children will be upset when you give their beloved pet away. Explain it had to be done because she wasn’t safe around their father. Dear Abby: My sister informed me today her children have registered at Toys R Us, and has instructed me to buy only the toys on their registry for Christmas. Apparently, this is the new way to shop. Abby, I have never told anyone what to buy my kids, and I’m appalled by this new idea of a Christmas registry. I try very hard to buy great Christmas gifts that my loved ones will enjoy. Am I wrong to think this is rude? – Ap-

palled Shopper Dear Appalled: I agree your sister’s request is presumptuous. But I suppose a Christmas registry is a natural progression from wedding and baby registries. There wouldn’t be a Toys R Us registry if it wasn’t a successful sales tool for people who don’t like to shop. Because you are not one of them, and Christmas shopping brings you pleasure, I suggest you do as you wish. P.S. Let’s see how Sissy responds when you let her know you have adopted her idea and will register at Tiffany’s on your next birthday.

Dear Dr. K: My doctor saw something suspicious on my mammogram and wants to do a breast biopsy. I understand there are several biopsy techniques. Can you tell me what they involve? Dear Reader: The invention of mammograms (X-rays of the breast) has saved many lives. Mammograms can spot a small, early breast cancer, and help doctors cure it. What your doctor saw was a spot that looked like it might be cancer. The mammogram, and other breast-imaging techniques such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), cannot tell with certainty. If the mammogram looks suspicious, a biopsy is the only way to know for sure whether there is a cancer. In a biopsy, a part of the suspicious-looking area is removed by a minor surgical procedure. This tissue is analyzed in a lab to determine whether it is cancerous and, if so, how quickly it is likely to grow and spread. This information helps to guide treatment decisions. A breast biopsy can be done in different ways, depending on the location and size of the abnormality and other factors. • A doctor can perform fine needle aspiration (FNA)

in an office by inserting a slender needle into the breast and drawing out (aspirating) a small amount of tissue from a suspicious lump. The doctor may aspirate several samples. In some cases, the doctor may use ultrasound images to guide the needle. Ultrasound shows when the tip of the needle has reached the suspicious area. Ultrasound has no damaging effects on the breast: Unlike a mammogram, ultrasound does not involve any radiation. • Most doctors prefer the large core needle biopsy method because it removes more tissue, and that makes for a more accurate diagnosis. A larger needle than the one used for FNA is used. The needle is inserted into the breast through a tiny incision. Using X-rays or ultrasound images as a guide, or by feeling the lump, the doctor moves the needle into the area of concern. He or she extracts one or more tissue samples through the needle using suction from a syringe. Stereotactic needle biopsy is a type of large

core needle biopsy. It uses special imaging equipment to pinpoint the tissue to be removed. • In a surgical biopsy, the surgeon makes an incision and removes all or part of the abnormal tissue for examination. It is done in an operating room under local or general anesthesia. A biopsy that removes only part of the suspicious tissue is called an incisional biopsy. One that removes the entire lump is called an excisional biopsy. Sometimes a surgical biopsy is preceded by wire localization. During a mammogram, a radiologist inserts a small wire through a needle into your breast, with the end of the wire inside the suspicious area. This helps the surgeon more easily identify the suspicious area during the surgical biopsy. Most biopsies reveal the suspicious area of the breast is not cancer. Until the biopsy is done, a woman and her family and friends are understandably concerned. But most of the time, the news turns out to be good.

WORTH TALKIN’ ABOUT

‘American Hustle,’ ‘12 Years A Slave’ among Golden Globes noms Heaping seven nominations on both the con-artist melodrama “American Hustle” and the grimly historical “12 Years a Slave,” the Golden Globes nominations set up a showdown of contrasts: comedy and drama, light and dark, white and black. The two films were validated as Academy Awards front-runners in the Globes nominations announced Thursday in Beverly Hills, Calif., by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, refining what had been a scattered awards season in a year many consider encouragingly plentiful of worthy movies. The differences between the two top nominees are vast. While David O. Russell’s fictionalized caper “American Hustle” takes a playful, exaggerated approach to an already outlandish story (the FBI’s scandal-uncovering Abscam investigation in the disco 1970s), Steve McQueen’s “12 Years a Slave,” based on Solomon Northup’s 1853 memoir, is unflinching in its portrait of Southern slavery – a subject Hollywood has seldom depicted rigorously or truthfully. “I feel this film is pivotal and just good for the world,” said Lupita Nyong’o, who was nominated for best supporting actress. The other nominations for “12 Years a Slave” include best picture, drama; best actor for Chiwetel Ejiofor; best director for McQueen; and best supporting actor for Michael Fassbender. This year’s ceremony Jan. 12 will again be hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who led last year’s broadcast to 19.7 million viewers, a significant bump for the Globes. They often serve as a preamble to the more prestigious Oscars, which will be March 2.

Room for family

Photos provided

ABOVE: The 2014 Toyota Venza is a midsized wagon offering a 3.5-liter, 268-horsepower V-6 engine mated to a shiftable six-speed automatic transmission. TOP: Leg room is ample in the front seats of the Venza.

Toyota Venza an impeccable family ride Whether a four-cylinder model or a V-6, Toyota’s fourdoor, five-seat Venza wagon is an ideal vehicle for the typical-size family. Roominess in two seating rows, exceptional cargo space plus a plethora of safety features are hallmarks of this vehicle that entered the market in 2008 as a 2009 model. Venza is the wagon version of Toyota’s Camry sedan, but it is designed off the entry-luxury Avalon platform. One gets the best of Camry and Avalon in the Venza, including a 3.5-liter, 268-horsepower V-6 engine mated to a shiftable six-speed automatic transmission. In the Avalon, that engine is standard. In the Camry and Venza, it is an upgrade found in the XLE models. The Venza that was tested recently was an all-wheel-drive XLE with the 268-horsepower engine. Six-speed shiftable automatic transmissions are standard in Camrys, Avalons and Venzas. Smaller 2.5- and 2.7-liter, 181-horsepower inline four-cylinders are available in both Camry and Venza, but the 3.5-liter is the one that can tow a 3,500-pound trailer or accelerate without the trailer while carrying its 4,045 pounds of body weight from 0 to 60 mph in close to seven seconds. For 2014, Venza models are LE, XLE and Limited, and they are priced from $27,950, $31,810 and $38,120 respec-

REVIEWS Jerry Kuyper tively. The LE has 19-inch alloy wheels, and the XLE and Limited have 20-inchers to support the P245 all-season tires. Otherwise, they share the same exterior design. Each model offers front- or all-wheel-drive. The 20-inch wheels are controlled by disc brakes measuring 12.8 inches in front and 11.7 inches in the rear. The brakes should get the Venza from 60 mph back to zero in 130 feet on dry pavement. The tested XLE had a retail price of $35,080 plus an $860 delivery charge. If the buyer opts for a $1,850 premium package, the XLE essentially turns into a Limited. Among the niceties of that package are a power tilt and slide moonroof, upgrade JBL sound system with 13 instead of six speakers and a navigation system. The 24-valve, dual overhead cam V-6 engine accelerates instantly and quietly. During the test week, it averaged 22 miles per gallon of regular unleaded fuel in combined suburban and highway driving. The Environmental Protection Agency rates this Venza at 18 mpg city, 25 mpg highway and 21 mpg combined. Loading this wagon with home improvement materials and equipment was easy

as it has a ground clearance of 8 inches with a low liftover at the rear. The liftgate opens and closes by power. It rises well out of the way of getting objects in and out of the carpeted and lighted floor, which expands to 70.2 cubic feet when the rear split seats are folded flat. With the rear seats upright, storage is 36.2 cubic feet. A removable tonneau cover is standard. Like the Avalon, leg room in the rear seat of this midsized wagon is exceptional and is equivalent or better than that of full-size sedans or wagons. Officially, it is 39.1 inches. Venza offers an impeccable if not perfect ride with a suspension system of struts, coil springs and stabilizer bars front and rear. Front bucket seats will accommodate large frames, and they adjust accordingly. The steering wheel tilts and telescopes. As expected in a vehicle based on an Avalon sedan, the Venza included four express up and down power windows (two express windows are common in this market), power driver’s seat, power and heated exterior mirrors, remote keyless entry, power door locks, a backup camera showing what’s behind this wagon on a 3.5-inch color screen, and dual lighted cupholders on the center console. A six-speaker sound system served AM/FM radio, CD (storage for six) and MP3

FAST FACTS

Storage space expands to 70.2 cubic feet when the split and fold rear seats are flattened in the 2014 Toyota Venza. players and an auxiliary audio input jack. Other amenities included smart start, cruise control, air conditioning, zoned climate controls, rear vents, privacy glass, map lights in front and reading lights in the rear, multiple lidded bins and beverage holders, grab handles, coat hangers, variable front wipers, rear intermittent wiper and defroster. A useful touch is a hooded information window centered at the top of the dashboard. It includes cabin temperature settings for driver and passenger, fan speed, outside temperature, fuel usage and time of day. Depending on how one counts, there are nine airbags, which includes a knee airbag for the driver and

overhead curtains for protection on both sides, front and rear. That adds up to five. The other four airbags are in front and the front sides for driver and his or her frontseat companion. Stability and traction controls are standard, as are a four-wheel antilock braking system, brake assist, headrests (active for those seated in front) to complement the five three-point seatbelts, child safety rear door locks, child seat tethers and anchors, and a tire pressure monitoring system. From far away or close up, the Venza strikes a fashionable pose highlighted by a tapering profile, big inset front fog lights, dual exhaust tips, a modest rear spoiler, a honeycomb air dam beneath a racy chrome grille,

Infiniti Q80: Too much is enough already By WARREN BROWN The Washington Post It is the grand duke of excess – a gaudy member of the family of Infiniti, its biggest and most exhibitionist relative, destined never to become king. Ego is its primary excuse for being. It makes little practical sense, a deficit worsened by the overall ugliness of its demeanor. The 2014 Infiniti Q80 sport utility vehicle – lacking in anything remotely related to “sport” and easily trumped by lower-cost models in matters of utility – is the silliest vehicle I’ve driven in years. Judging from the rave online reviews supposedly rendered by Q80 owners, I am alone in that assessment. So be it. On this one, I choose to remain an outlier. My objections are many, my compliments few. To begin: • The Q80 is too big, certainly too big for daily urban use and, based on experience, problematic in crowded suburban settings, such as shopping center parking lots. The thing is 17.4 feet long and 6.7 feet wide. It stands 6.3 feet tall. Nissan Motor Co., maker of all things Infiniti, has equipped the Q80 with some remarkable technology to help drivers handle its girth. We’ll discuss that later. For now, I prefer to look at the Q80 from the perspective of a motorist sharing the road with this bauble-laden beast. It is a bus masquerading as reasonable family transportation. • Essentially, the Q80 is a truck – I’m thinking a scion of the Nissan Titan pickup – placed atop a limousine chassis. Nissan/Infiniti tries to excuse this unhappy matchmaking by extolling the Q80’s suspension technology, specifically the Q80’s patented Hydraulic Body Motion Control System. Marketers for Nissan/In-

The Infiniti QX80 is marketed as a sport utility vehicle but is too big to be “sporty.” Photo provided

finiti call this a “world-first technology.” I beg to differ. Similar systems can be found in vehicles from Cadillac, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Audi and others. The idea is to use hydraulic fluid, with electronic assistance, to balance cornering forces on sharp turns, with the payoff being reduced vehicle body lean in turns and a smoother overall ride. That system works OK in the Q80. It works much, much better in smaller, tighter vehicles. Here’s the problem: The Q80 with all-wheel-drive, the

model driven for this column, has a nearly 3-ton factory weight, tonnage minus passengers and cargo. Specifically, in this case, that totals 5,878 pounds. Add people and cargo, and you’ll soon realize you are not swinging around anybody’s curve – not safely, anyway – in the Q80. It seems Nissan/Infiniti’s designers took too long a lunch break on this one. The Q80 is French Provincial on wheels – bubbles and curves everywhere, even in the most inconvenient places, such as the front fenders, when it comes to ding-free parking.

The interior is elaborate, but it’s severely lacking in ergonomic common sense. There are tufted “semi-aniline leather appointed seats” with similar “semi-aniline leather” material quite literally draped on interior door panels. There also are “mocha burl” wood inserts in the door, the instrument panels and in the center console. It looks decadently rich. If that is what you are looking for in an oversize SUV, the Q80 is for you. But you might want to think a bit. The Q80 comes fixed with a 5.6-liter

gasoline-direct-injection V-8 engine that delivers a maximum 400 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. The engine swills gasoline at 14 miles per gallon in the city and 20 miles per gallon on the highway – a lackluster combined total of 17 miles per gallon at a time when all vehicle manufacturers, including Nissan, are busting their corporate tails to deliver better fuel economy. I suspect that the Infiniti Q80 is a marketing exercise designed to pick up as many customers as possible whose egos reside in their wallets.

That’s my takeaway from this driving experience. The Q80 is not the least bit sporty. I get better real utility out of something such as the 2014 Subaru Forester, which has a base price of $21,995, compared with an entry price of $64,450 for the Infiniti Q80. Also, the Subaru Forester is easier to drive – it offers much better handling. It is substantially less aggravating in congested city traffic. You can park the Forester almost anywhere. And it, too, comes with advanced electronic safety and parking assistance systems.

Real car nuts usu4. ally can look at a car’s engine and tell from the valve covers what type of motor they are admiring. Look at the picture of the hot rod with the oval hole cut out of its side panel (right). What kind of motor are we looking at? A. Small block Chevy B. Chrysler Hemi C. Buick Nail Head Photos provided

What type of motor rests in the engine bay of this early Ford hot rod? Seen at a McHenry Green Street Cruise Night, this 1957 Ford two-door hardtop “street machine” sports one of the hottest after-market wheel covers ever produced.

Before “Mag” style wheels became the norm to dress up your car’s exte6. rior, there were custom made wheel covers or hub caps.

Custom cars were just that – 7. cars that were customized to enhance the look of a car over its stock factory appearance. These cars were known as Kustom Kars and were very popular from the late 1930s to the late 1950s. One common trick used by Kustom Kar builders of the time was to make cars look “cool” by recessing the headlights or taillights anywhere from a quarter of an inch to 6 inches. What is the common carspeak term for recessed lights on an automobile? A. Slammed When sold through Sears stores during the early 1950s, this “Henry J” compact car had a different name.

There was an automobile manufactured from 1950 to 1954 by the Kaiser-Frazer Corp. that got 35 miles per gallon. It was called a “compact car” back in the day and was called the Henry J.

Possible jumped timing belt requires caution I have a 1998 Mazda 626 with a 2-liter engine. Last night as I was driving home, the engine lost power, and it ran as if it was running on two cylinders. It barely ran, but I managed to drive the last 2 miles to my home. I called my neighbor, who is good about fixing cars. He said the timing belt might have jumped. It’s never been replaced, and my car has 166,000 miles on it. He told me to have the car towed to a shop because the engine might be damaged. I really can’t afford a major repair right now. Is there an easy way to determine if the timing belt has jumped? – K.R., email Take your friend’s advice. Don’t run the engine. It is possible for damage to occur if the timing belt has jumped. As for checking the timing belt, if your friend is willing, remove the valve cover. This will expose the timing belt and marks that align the belt and gears. It’s likely he will need to rotate the engine by hand a little to bring the engine timing to top-dead-center to determine proper belt alignment. If the belt has jumped, it’s time to call a tow truck and send the car to your favorite repair shop to replace it. Also, if the issue is not a jumped timing belt, it’s a good idea to have it replaced now along with whatever else has

step on the pedal.

DR. GIZMO Phil Arendt caused the condition. The belt is long overdue for replacement.

The clutch master cylinder blew in my 2001 Oldsmobile Alero with a 2.4-liter engine. I was driving along when all of sudden, when I pressed on the clutch pedal, it did not disengage. When I checked it, there was no fluid in it. I filled it, and fluid leaked out. I replaced the master with a brand new unit from my auto supply store. The directions stated the unit was prefilled and bled. The one I bought had no fluid in it. When I installed it, I filled the unit and tried to bleed air, but I could not get the clutch pedal to build pressure. When this happened, I went to my auto supply and borrowed a vacuum bleeding tool. After many attempts to bleed the system, I still have not been able to get the system to pressurize. What am I missing? – B.R., email The issue might be the new clutch master has a defect. Maybe that’s why there was no fluid in it when you installed it. Consider returning the part to your supplier. I’ll bet the next one is filled and ready to do the job of releasing the clutch when you

The last time I was at my auto care center, they told me the power steering needs flushing. My car is a 2005 Chevrolet Malibu with 33,000 miles. It’s in mint condition. Do I really need that? – M.W., Roseville, Minn. You probably don’t, but your car might. The factory recommended maintenance schedule in your owner’s guide does not recommend a specific interval to flush the power steering system. This is done on an as-needed basis. If the fluid shows symptoms such as a burnt or pungent odor, it is time for a flush. If it’s fresh and clean, there is no need to flush the system at this time.

Recently, I acquired a 2001 Mustang GT convertible with a V-8 engine. It’s fun to drive during the summer, but my thought now is to store it for the winter and not drive it until spring. I plan to fill the gas tank and add a fuel stabilizer additive. I also thought it would be a good idea to change the oil and filter. I also heard the tires will lose pressure, so I plan to overinflate them by about 10 pounds. I also intend to back the car out of the garage once or twice a month to run the engine for 15 or 20 minutes to keep the battery charged and give the fluids a chance to warm up.

I’ve never stored a car before. Am I on the right track? – D.L., email You’re close, but your Mustang needs exercise. How about this? When the weather is dry, once or twice a month take the car for a nonstop spin of 10 miles or so. This will charge the battery and bring the engine, tires, fluids and running gear to full operating temperature. This also prevents brake damage from corrosion, and it will put a smile on your face. It also will keep critters from making your car their home. This is much better than idling in the driveway, where the powertrain and other systems will not reach full operating temperature. What’s more, you won’t need to pour fuel additives into the gas tank, and you might be able to check off a few chores on your honey-do list. This might put a smile on your honey’s face, too.

I hear a gurgling rushing water sound from the dash in my 2007 Subaru Legacy, and the heater is not blowing as hot as it used to. I checked the antifreeze level in the tank. It’s full. The temperature gauge reads normal, and the engine is not overheating. Also, everything under the hood seems normal. Do you know the cause? – B.T., email Since heat production

from the heating, air conditioning and ventilation system is not normal, it’s possible there is air trapped in the system or coolant flow through the heater core is restricted. You state the coolant level in the tank is full. More than likely, the issue is not trapped air. However, if the system received a recent flush, trapped air is a possibility. If so, return to the shop that performed the service to have them bleed air from the system. If the system has not been flushed, odds are air is not trapped and the issue is a restriction in the heater core. Flushing the system might clear the heater core of restrictions, cure the lack of heat and silence the unusual noise.

I own a 2006 BMW X3 with a 3.0 engine and drips of antifreeze on my garage floor. I’ve been watching the antifreeze level in the overflow tank and have needed to add fluid twice in the past two weeks. I also have been watching the temperature gauge so the engine does not overheat. When looking at the engine from the front of the car, the leak looks like it’s on the driver’s side. I went to a repair shop to have them look for the cause of the leak. They don’t know the cause because the area of the leak is concealed by engine parts. They don’t know if it’s

caused by a leaking cylinder gasket or if there is another issue. Do you have any suggestions? Do you know what’s leaking? – D.W., email No matter what is leaking, it needs repair and quickly. If the engine overheats, it could be ruined. What might be a minor drip now could suddenly become a flash flood, so don’t delay the repair. The driver’s side of the engine is the left side. There are several components covering this area. The main part is the intake manifold. Hidden under it are coolant tubes that more or less plug into the cylinder head. It’s possible the seals on the tubes have failed. It’s also possible corrosion or vibration has caused the tubes to fail, causing a leak. Additionally, it is possible there is an external leak of the cylinder head gasket. To find the cause, your technician needs to remove parts concealing the area so he can visually inspect for the leak. What needs repair depends on his findings.

Owner William Gee stands inside the dining section of the New China restaurant in Fox River Grove. A January grease fire caused between $150,000 and $200,000 in damage to the restaurant. Due to expenses related to building code compliance during construction, New China has encountered financial shortages from insurance coverage. Several local businesses have turned to crowdsourcing to raise money to stay in business.

Crowdsourced capital Businesses turn to online fundraisers to generate money By JOSEPH BUSTOS

jbustos@shawmedia.com When patrons found out the New China Restaurant in Fox River Grove was struggling to reopen after a fire in January, one of them started an online fundraiser to help with the repairs and renovations. Among the work that is needed is new plumbing, floor drains, heating and cooling updates, electrical installation, sprinkler system installation and a new hood system for the kitchen, according to the fundraiser’s website. Online fundraisers to help a business make improvements, or help projects get off the ground and started have become more and more common, especially with sites such as Kickstarter. New China Owner William Gee said he was thankful for the fundraiser. “If someone wants to help us, it’s a godsend,” Gee said. It was underestimated how much it would cost to bring the 90-year-old building, where New China is located, up to modern codes before it can reopen, Gee said. Insurance money only covered fire-related damages. Upgrades and repairs didn’t move along as hoped, as the project was mismanaged by the original contractor, Gee said. The Gee family never received a written proposal or detailed contract for the project from the original contractor, Gee added. The 37-year-old business has been the key income source for Gee and the Gee family. “I would have never thought the day would come I would have to work for somebody else,” Gee said.

Studio 2015 to host designer Suzy Landa

Kyle Grillot – kgrillot@shawmedia.com

Raising the height of the ceiling and installing floor drains are a few complications New China has encountered while complying with building codes. Before the McHenry Drive-in, owned by Golden Age Cinemas, won a contest through Honda, the business was trying to raise money to buy a digital projector, through an online crowdsourcing campaign. Scott Dehn, president of Golden Age Cinemas, had a campaign on the fundraising website Kickstarter with a goal of $130,000 for a projector and accompanying maintenance. When that campaign fell short, he didn’t receive any money from Kickstarter and had to start over. Earlier this year, however, Dehn received enough online and text-message votes through Honda’s Project Drive-In contest to be one of the driveins in the country to receive a digital projector. Rita Garry, a Chicago-based attor-

ney with Golan and Christie who specializes in crowdfunding, said campaigns where people donate money in exchange for perks, is called crowdsourcing. There are about 750 of those types of sites, Garry said. In the case of New China restaurant, perks include free food and recognition on the restaurant’s donor wall. Garry said people commonly call crowdsourcing, crowdfunding. Crowdfunding isn’t legal yet, Garry said. The rules for crowdfunding are still being formulated by the Security Exchange Commission. Proposed regulations came out in October. Garry said a successful crowdsourcing campaign needs to tell

Holiday shopping spree not for everyone By ANNE D’INNOCENZIO and CANDICE CHOI The Associated Press NEW YORK – Many Americans are watching the annual holiday spending ritual from the sidelines this year. Money is still tight for some. Others are fed up with commercialism of the holidays. Still others are waiting for bigger bargains. And people like Lark-Marie Anton Menchini are more thoughtful about their purchases. The New York public relations executive said in the past she’d buy her children up to eight Christmas gifts each, but this year they’re getting three apiece. The leftover money is going toward their college savings. “We told them Santa is ... being very conscious of how many gifts he puts on his sleigh,” Menchini, 36, said. Despite an improving economy, most workers are not seeing meaningful wage increases. And those who can splurge said the brash commercialism around the holidays – many more stores are opening for business on Thanksgiving – is a turnoff. Perhaps the biggest factor is that shoppers are less motivated than ever by holiday sales. Since the Great Recession, retailers have been dangling more discounts throughout the year, so Ameri-

The National Retail Federation estimates sales over the four-day 2013 holiday weekend including Thanksgiving declined 2.9 percent from last year. cans have learned to hold out for even deeper holiday savings on clothes, electronics and more. To stay competitive and boost sales, retailers are slashing prices further during their busiest season of the year, which is cutting into their own profit margins. There aren’t reliable figures on how many people plan to shop during the holidays. But early data points to a shift in holiday spending.

The National Retail Federation estimated that sales during the start to the official start to season – the four-day weekend that began on Thanksgiving Day – dropped 2.9 percent from last year to $57.4 billion. That would mark the first decline in the seven years the trade group has tracked spending. And during the week afterward – which ended Sunday – sales fell another 2.9 percent compared with a year ago, according to data tracker ShopperTrak, which did not give dollar amounts. Meanwhile, the number of shoppers in stores plunged nearly 22 percent. The numbers are sobering for retailers, which depend on making up to 40 percent of their revenue in the last two months of the year. They suggest shifts in the attitudes of U.S. shoppers that could force stores to reshape their strategies:

Shoppers want deals Stores slashed prices during the recession to get financially-strapped shoppers in stores and to better compete with the cheaper prices of online retailers such as Amazon. But shoppers got used to those deals and now won’t buy without them. The constant discounting has blunted the “wow” factor of sales during the holidays.

8IN BRIEF

Northwest Herald / NWHerald.com

Explore options to increase revenue, cut taxes

Unemployment aid applications surge WASHINGTON – The number of people seeking U.S. unemployment benefits rose 68,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 368,000, the largest increase in more than a year. The surge in first-time applications could be a troubling sign if it lasts. But it likely reflects the difficulty adjusting for delays after the Thanksgiving holiday. The Labor Department said Thursday that the less volatile four-week average rose 6,000 to 328,750. That is close to pre-recession levels.

U.S. stocks fall for third straight day The stock market fell to its lowest level in a month Thursday as investors worried that the end might be nearing for the Federal Reserve’s support for the economy. The Fed’s stimulus efforts have been a key factor in the bull market that has pushed the Standard & Poor’s 500 index almost 25 higher percent this year. Investors know it will end sooner or later. But the timing, and the fallout, are uncertain. Until this month, stocks had risen for eight weeks straight. The S&P 500 set a record high as recently as Monday. But stocks posted their biggest declines since Nov. 7 on Wednesday, and dropped further on Thursday. Now they’re on the verge of their second weekly loss in a row. The Dow Jones industrial average closed down 104.10 points, or 0.7 percent, at 15,739.43. The S&P 500 fell 6.72 points, or 0.4 percent, to 1,775.50. The Nasdaq composite dropped 5.41 points, or 0.1 percent, to 3,998.40. The Dow is still up 20 percent this year, and the Nasdaq has risen 32 percent. “We don’t think we’re in a bubble, however we do know we’re in an expensive market,” said Marty Leclerc, chief investment officer and portfolio manager at Barrack Yard Advisors. – The Associated Press

Undeniably, small and large businesses alike face multiple challenges trying to stay competitive. Fierce competition is forcing most vertical markets to continuously look for new ways to increase revenue by creating and innovating new products and services, and drive customer experience processes while simultaneously trying to reduce cost. In addition, focusing on the numerous tax codes adds significant complexity to operating a profitable business. Steve Forbes once said, “The tax code is a monstrosity, and there’s only one thing to do with it. Scrap it, kill it, drive a stake through its heart, bury it and hope it never rises again to terrorize the American people.” Moreover, according to CCH Standard Federal Tax Reporter, in printed pages, our tax code is 73,954 pages long. Seemingly, the complexities of our tax code are fully understood by none and misunderstood by all. There are hundreds of local, state and federal incentives available that allow companies to either generate additional revenue streams, reduce taxes or provide significant tax breaks. For example, section 41 of the internal revenue code, also known as the

BUSINESS CONSULTING Jeff Ernst research and development tax credit, allows companies to take a dollar-fordollar tax deduction on the current year and even tax refunds on prior years – with interest. One reason companies don’t apply for this credit is they believe they don’t qualify. Since the federal government has dramatically expanded ways to qualify, you no longer need to be in manufacturing in order to qualify. If you have engineers on staff, write software, perform quality assurance, develop prototypes, new product development, apply patents, develop new concepts or develop new processes, you might qualify. The federal government takes this incentive seriously as it releases between $5 billion and $8 billion annually to trigger job growth and stimulate innovation and creativity. Another potentially significant benefit is the cost segregation study for commercial building owners. The cost segregation study is accelerated depreciation of personal property. So, rather than depreciat-

Legalization expected soon Continued from page E1 a compelling story, such as one that will tug at the heart strings. “A lot don’t plan campaigns very well because they don’t do a lot of planning and don’t tell a story that is compelling,” Garry said. “It won’t meet the goals of the campaign.” Garry noted crowdsourcing websites also may take a percentage from the money raised, as they need to administer the campaigns. “You can’t have a bake sale ... without buying the ingredients,” Garry said. She also said crowdsourcing may just be a fad and might go away. “How many $10 T-shirts do I want to buy?” Garry said. When crowdfunding becomes legal, which is expected to be in the late summer of next year, it will allow people to contribute toward a proposed business and then gain equity in that business. Congress created crowdfunding as part of the 2012 Jumpstart our

ers’ compensation audits. Workers’ compensation can be a large expense for companies and, due to its complexities, is not understood. Therefore, companies overpay. Roughly 70 percent overpay on their workers’ compensation premiums. One significant complexity is the number of classifications. Many states have more than 700 classifications, so companies and people are classified incorrectly. In addition, each state has different interpretations of the classifications. This makes it virtually impossible for providers to truly comprehend each individual policy. The internal audits conducted by your provider simply verify payroll. They do not check for rule violations, misclassifications or overcharges. These programs are only a tip of the iceberg available to companies. By taking advantage, you will realize new revenue streams, reduce cost and increase your chances of profitability and sustainability. Future articles will be more specific about a singular program. • Jeff Ernst is managing director of Ernst Consulting Group, a brokerage company specializing in expense recovery programs and additional revenue streams. He can be reached at 877-221-8811 or at jeff@ernstcg.com.

Big-ticket items boost retail sales

Business Startup Act, as small businesses have had difficulties finding capital to start up, Garry said. “Before the recession, when entrepreneurs wanted to start a business, they would take out a home equity loan or borrow from friends or family,” Garry said. However, those sources of capital may be tapped and private equity firms may not be interested in small businesses. Crowdfunding can become a way to fill the funding gap from small start up businesses, Garry said. When crowdfunding is allowed to move forward, small businesses will be permitted to raise $1 million in a 12-month period through regulated Internet sites called funding portals or intermediaries. On the funding portals, entrepreneurs or small businesses will be able to put up listings of their business and say why they need to raise capital in exchange for stock in the company. “I will be your investor,” Garry said. “I’m not doing this out of a goodness of my heart. I’m doing it to own a piece of your company.”

• CROWDSOURCING

ing your property over 39 years, you depreciate at five, seven or nine years. With cost segregation, you do not need to amend your tax returns and, if done properly, you can reduce property taxes while potentially generating “catch-up” depreciation from prior years. In each case, these studies should be done by experts with a vast knowledge of the very specific tax laws. According the IRS, these studies should be engineering based, and, to be compliant, should be conducted by experienced teams of IP/tax attorneys and engineers. Ultimately, these studies should end up being 40- to 50-page detailed engineering reports. With the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, many companies will face massive health insurance premiums. In fact, group health insurance has increased 300 percent since 1999. There are decades of old tax codes that can virtually eliminate healthplan deductibles and enable employers to reduce their health benefit expense by up to 25 percent without having to change their plan or provider. Another potential niche revenue stream and cost reduction initiative that’s not part of the tax code is work-

• SHOPPING Continued from page E1 For instance, some retailers were offering discounts of 40 percent or more on the day after Thanksgiving – known as Black Friday. Jennifer Ambrosh, 40, was unimpressed with the “deals” she saw on that day. “There’s a lot of hype, but ... the deals aren’t that good,” Ambrosh, an accountant, said. Overall, the retail federation expects spending in November and December to rise 3.9 percent to $602.1 billion. But to get that growth, analysts say retailers will need to discount heavily. There are signs that profits for the quarter that includes the holiday season are being hurt by the discounting. Walmart and American Eagle Outfitters are among 47 retailers that have slashed their outlooks. Overall, retailers’ earnings growth is expected to be up 2.1 percent, according to research firm Retail Metrics. That would be the worst performance since profit fell 6.7 percent in the second quarter of 2009.

Scrutinizing purchases The recession not only taught Ameri-

cans to expect bargains. It also showed them that they could make do with less. In the economic recovery, many have maintained that frugality. So whereas in a better economy, Americans would make big and small purchases, in this economy they’re being more thoughtful and making choices about what to buy. That hasn’t boded well for retailers that sell clothing, shoes and holiday items. That’s because Americans are buying more big-ticket items over the holidays. Government figures show that retail sales were up 0.7 percent in November, the biggest gain in five months. But the increase was led by autos, appliances and electronics. Auto sales jumped 1.8 percent, furniture purchases rose 1.2 percent and sales at electronics and appliances stores rose 1.1 percent. Meanwhile, sales at department stores and clothing chains were weak. Americans are leaning toward big purchases for two reasons. They want to take advantage of low interest rates. And since many paid down debt since the recession, they feel more comfortable using credit cards again for such purchases.

H.L. Mencken said, “An idealist is one who, on noticing that a rose smells better than a cabbage, concludes that it will also make better soup.” Or maybe that is someone who jumps too quickly to conclusions, which is also not a good idea at the bridge table. In today’s deal, South is in seven spades. West leads the heart queen. How should declarer deliberate? North’s raise to three spades promised some points. South’s plunge into seven spades was optimistic because he knew that he could not reach the dummy unless it contained the heart queen or a heart shortage. It would have been wiser to stop in six -- except that that would have ruined the column! Someone who is impulsive will win with his heart ace, cash the diamond ace and heart king, then ruff a heart on the board. But East would overruff to defeat the contract. Yes, South needs to ruff a heart and discard

his second low heart on the diamond king, but he needs only one trump for one ruff. So, he should start by drawing two rounds of trumps. Then he unblocks the diamond ace, cashes the second top heart, and ruffs a heart in the dummy. Here, his care is rewarded when East has doubletons in both majors. South pitches his last heart on a high diamond, ruffs a diamond back to his hand, draws West’s last trump, and claims. A broad smile is permitted from North!
