‘Years of memories are lost’ Woodstock man describes fire that left his home uninhabitable By JIM DALLKE WOODSTOCK – Ron Boss woke up early Thursday morning to his house fully engulfed in flames. Boss stepped out of his bedroom, looked to the kitchen and saw that smoke had filled the entire room. The smoke was so dense he could barely see in front of him. Boss dropped to his knees and hurried into the kitchen to grab his phone. He stood up to exit the house, but he ran directly

into a door that knocked him to the ground. He looked up and saw his entire ceiling on fire. Boss got out of the house but quickly realized his 2-year-old pit bull, Gucci, who normally is always by his side, was nowhere to be found. “I could hear him in there crying,” Boss said. “I tried to open the back door but flames were shooting out. I was calling him and he wouldn’t come out. I tried to break a window

Fake interpreter reportedly faced murder charge By ALAN CLENDENNING and RAY FAURE The Associated Press JOHANNESBURG – South Africa’s government was confronted Friday with a new and chilling allegation about the bogus sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela’s memorial: He was reportedly accused of murder 10 years ago. Officials said they were investigating the revelation by the national eNCA TV news station. But they were unable, or unwilling, to explain why a man who says he is schizophrenic with violent tendencies was allowed to get within arm’s length of President Barack Obama and other world leaders. Investigators probing Thamsanqa Jantjie “will compile a comprehensive report,” said Phumla Williams, the top government spokeswoman. But she did not say how long the investigation would take and insisted details would not be released until it was completed. “We are not going to sweep it under the carpet,” Williams said. “We want to own up if there is a mistake, but we don’t want to be dishonest” to Jantjie. An Associated Press reporter found Jantjie at a makeshift bar owned by his cousin on the outskirts of Soweto Friday, near his concrete house close to shacks and an illegal dump where

Thamsanqa Jantjie gestures at his home during an interview Thursday with the Associated Press in Johannesburg, South Africa. Jantjie, the man accused of faking sign interpretation next to world leaders at Nelson Mandela’s memorial, told a local newspaper that he was hallucinating and hearing voices. goats pick at grass between the trash. Asked about the murder allegation, Jantjie turned and walked away without saying anything. A day earlier, he told the AP that he had been violent “a lot” in the past, has schizophrenia and hallucinated during the Mandela memorial that angels were descending into the stadi-

um. He also apologized for his performance, but defended his interpreting as “the best in the world.” His assertion was ridiculed by deaf advocates who said he didn’t know how to sign “Mandela” or “thank you.” The outcome of the reported murder case that eNCA said dated from 2003 was unclear, and the television

report did not disclose any details. Officials at the Johannesburg court where the murder charge was reportedly lodged were not in their offices Friday afternoon and did not respond to email requests seeking comment. There were no records of a murder case involving Jantjie at South Africa’s National Prosecuting Authority, but spokesman Nathi Mncube said that doesn’t necessarily mean Jantjie was never a suspect. “I cannot confirm that the guy was charged, but I cannot deny it, either,” he said. “There are no records right now.” Jantjie also faced other lesser criminal charges in the past, eNCA reported. In the interview with the AP, he blamed his past violent episodes on his schizophrenia, but declined to provide details. The fiasco surrounding the use of Jantjie to provide sign language translation before a worldwide television audience has turned into an international embarrassment for South Africa, whose ruling party, the African National Congress, and president, Jacob Zuma, have already lost popularity because of corruption scandals and other public grievances. But the ANC is far more powerful than the opposition and Zuma, who was booed at the Mandela memorial, is likely to be its candidate in elections next year.

The Associated Press PHILADELPHIA – Administrators at a Roman Catholic high school suffered a sharp and swift backlash this week after firing a well-liked teacher who sought to marry his samesex partner. Educators said they had no choice, but thousands have protested the move through

Facebook groups and petitions demanding that Michael Griffin be rehired at Holy Ghost Preparatory School. Some alumni have pledged to withhold financial support. Caught in the middle are people who say Griffin should have known he was jeopardizing his job by publicizing his plan to wed, as well as those who worry the negative publicity is unfairly labeling the

Blagojevich hearing focus: What’s legal politics? By MICHAEL TARM The Associated Press CHICAGO – Judges considering an appeal by imprisoned former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich spent much of oral arguments Friday focusing on one question: At what point does run-of-the-mill political horse-trading veer into corruption? During an hourlong hearing, three judges of the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals frequently interrupted a prosecutor and pressed her to explain just how the former Democratic governor’s actions had strayed beyond what is otherwise acceptable in politics. “If you could help me with this, I’d be so grateful: Where is the line that differentiates legal horse trading from a federal offence that puts you in prison?” Judge Ilana Diamond Rovner asked at one point. Attorneys for Blagojevich, who was convicted of trying to sell an appointment to President Barack Obama’s vacated Senate seat, among

“Mr. Blagojevich’s defense is, ‘I thought this was (legal) political horse trading.’ This wasn’t some backroom deal.” Leonard Goodman, Blagojevich’s attorney other things, want the court to toss his convictions. At the very least, they want to court to slash years off his 14-year prison term, which is one of the longest ever imposed for corruption in a state where four of the last seven governors went prison. Blagojevich, who was once a contestant on NBC’s “Apprentice,” didn’t attend the hearing; he remained at the Colorado prison where he’s serving his sentence. But his wife, Patti Blagojevich, watched the proceedings, sometimes shaking her head when she disagreed with what was being said. After the hearing, she told reporters she held out hope that her husband, who turned 57 years old on Tuesday, will win his freedom and return home to her and their two

State representative wants Boeing plant in Decatur The ASSOCIATED PRESS SPRINGFIELD – An Illinois lawmaker is hoping Boeing Co. builds a new manufacturing plant in Decatur, about 180 miles southwest of its corporate headquarters in Chicago. Rep. Bill Mitchell, a Republican from Forsyth, said the central Illinois community would be a prime spot for Boeing to build its new 400-seat 777X jetliner, according to a report by the Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises Newspapers Boeing is looking at a $7 billion to $10 billion plant that would start with 3,250 work-

ers in 2018, and grow to 8,500 by 2024. “A few years back, Boeing moved its corporate headquarters to Chicago, with assistance from Illinois taxpayers,” Mitchell said in a statement. “I am encouraging Boeing to come to Decatur to see the great manufacturing capacity and highly skilled workforce we have ready to get to work.” Several other states also submitted offers by Tuesday’s deadline, including Missouri, Alabama and California. Illinois officials haven’t detailed the state’s bid for the factory, but they have called it a “compelling proposal.”

school-aged daughters. “He’s missed so many birthdays and holidays and now this is going on. We’ve just gone through our second Thanksgiving, coming up on our second Christmas without him,” she said. FBI agents arrested thenGov. Blagojevich five years ago this week, and jurors convicted him of wide-ranging charges in 2011, including for trying to profit from his power to name someone to President Barack Obama’s old U.S. Senate seat. That allegation was at the core of Friday’s hearing. In seeking a cabinet post – possibly as secretary of health and human services – in exchange for a Senate appointment, Blagojevich was merely seeking to further political causes he’d long cham-

pioned, including health care, Blagojevich attorney Leonard Goodman told judges. “Mr. Blagojevich’s defense is, ‘I thought this was (legal) political horse trading,’ ” said Goodman, adding that Blagojevich was an avid student of political history and was therefore conscious of not crossing that line. “This wasn’t some backroom deal.” Judge Frank Easterbrook, who has the reputation of liking to make attorneys squirm, even compared Blagojevich’s bid to land a Cabinet seat to how President Dwight Eisenhower named Earl Warren to the U.S. Supreme Court after Warren offered Eisenhower extensive political support during the 1952 campaign. “It would be an act of shysterism to say that was OK, and this (Blagojevich’s bid) was not,” Easterbrook said. He added, “If I understand your position, Earl Warren should have gone to prison, Dwight Eisenhower should have gone to prison. ... What’s different between that trade and this?”

St. Louis river bridge to open in February By JIM SUHR The Associated Press ST. LOUIS – Interstate 70 motorists and truckers trying to cross the Mississippi River at St. Louis soon will have a different option, and with any luck, it’ll be faster. Missouri and Illinois officials announced Thursday that the new four-lane-cable stayed bridge named after St. Louis Cardinals great Stan Musial will open to traffic Feb. 9, a celebrated milestone for a $700 million project that took a few years – and a few squabbles – to complete. The Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge, or the “Stan Span,” will relieve

three freeways. “This historic project will not only improve safety and reduce congestion but will create an entirely new corridor for economic development between two great states,” Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn said in a statement. “I’m looking forward to opening this much-needed bridge.” His Missouri counterpart, Gov. Jay Nixon, waxed historic, noting that the new bridge comes 140 years after Eads Bridge first linked the two states. The Musial bridge, he said, “is the latest span to bring commerce and travelers across the Mississippi River at this nexus of our country.”

The bridge’s beginnings weren’t so friendly. Before even a clump of dirt was turned over in 2010, Missouri and Illinois spent years squabbling over how to pay for the span. Missouri insisted it be a tollway – a notion flatly rejected by Illinois as potentially onerous for tens of thousands of its residents who commute daily to St. Louis and the Missouri-side suburbs. Illinois later proposed a sister bridge to an existing span, calling it affordable at $450 million. Missouri said it wasn’t a long-term solution. Both states ended the impasse in early 2008, announcing a compromise after Missouri relented on the tolls.

Prospects for budget legislation solid in Senate By DAVID ESPO The Associated Press WASHINGTON – One day after winning lopsided House approval, bipartisan legislation to ease across-the-board spending cuts and reduce economy-rattling budget brinkmanship appears likely to command the 60 votes necessary to clear the Senate, officials in both parties said Friday. Yet unlike in the House,

significantly more Senate Republicans are expected to oppose the legislation than vote for it, highlighting the different political forces at work at opposite ends of the Capitol. Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., announced a test vote for Tuesday on the measure, which cleared the House on an overwhelming bipartisan vote of 332-94. The Veterans of Foreign Wars joined the ranks of the bill’s opponents during the

day, citing a provision to reduce cost of living increases for military retirees until they reach age 62. The result could mean “a cumulative loss in retirement income of $80,000” for a sergeant first class who retires at age 40, the group said. “Although Iraq is over and the war in Afghanistan is winding down, we can’t allow Congress to dismantle the programs they created over the past 12 years,” said

William A. Thien, the VFW’s national commander. A short while later, Republican Sens. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, Roger Wicker of Mississippi and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said they would oppose the measure unless the provision were changed. They said a 42-year-old sergeant first class retiring after 20 years would lose about $72,000 in income. Overall, the legislation

erases a total of $63 billion in across-the-board cuts in the next two budget years, and specifies $85 billion in savings over a decade, including the one relating to military retirement. The result is a net $23 billion cut in deficits through 2023, although critics argue the spending increases will happen first, and many of the savings years later, if at all. By raising spending levels, the bill is also designed to eliminate the threat of anoth-

er budget shutdown like the one this fall. Senate supporters will need 60 votes to advance the bill, and even some opponents predicted that was likely to happen. “My sense is that the procedural issues could be overcome and there could be just” a yes or no vote, said Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., who added he intends to oppose the measure because it increases spending.

Student gunman wounds two Ohio school workers enter classmates in Colorado school not guilty pleas in rape case By DAN ELLIOTT and IVAN MORENO

By THOMAS J. SHEERAN The Associated Press

The Associated Press CENTENNIAL, Colo. – A teenager who may have had a grudge against a teacher opened fire Friday with a shotgun at a suburban Denver high school, wounding a fellow student before killing himself. Quick-thinking students at Arapahoe High School alerted the targeted teacher, who quickly left the building. The scene unfolded on the eve of the Newtown massacre anniversary, a somber reminder of the ever-present potential for violence in the nation’s schools. The wounded student, a 15-year-old girl, underwent surgery and was in critical condition. Authorities originally said a second student was wounded, but Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said Friday night that the other girl taken to a hospital was covered in blood from the first student and wasn’t injured. Robinson identified the shooter as Karl Halverson Pierson, 18. The sheriff did not elaborate on any possible motive except to say Pierson

A sheriff’s deputy talks on his radio Friday at Arapahoe High School in Centennial, Colo., where a student shot two students before he apparently killed himself, authorities said. had a “confrontation or disagreement” with the teacher. He didn’t know if the injured girl was intentionally shot. Pierson made no attempt to hide his weapon after entering the school from a parking lot and asking for the teacher by name, Robinson said. When the teacher learned that he was being targeted, he left “in an effort to try to encourage the shooter to also leave the school,” the sheriff said. “That was a very wise tactical decision.” Jessica Girard said she was in math class when she

heard three shots. “Then there was a bunch of yelling, and then I think one of the people who had been shot was yelling in the hallway, ‘Make it stop,’ ” she said. Two suspected Molotov cocktails were also found inside the school, the sheriff said. Robinson said one was lit and thrown, but no one was injured. The school was swiftly locked down. Within 20 minutes of the first report of a gunman, officers found Pierson’s body inside the school, Robinson said.

STEUBENVILLE, Ohio – Four eastern Ohio school workers entered not guilty pleas Friday to charges stemming from a grand jury investigation into other alleged crimes spurred by the rape of a 16-year-old girl by two high school football players. The four include Mike McVey, Steubenville’s top school official, whose attorney promised to fight the charges. “We are confident that we are going to prevail in these cases and prove they’re unfounded,” said McVey’s at-

torney, Charles Bean. “This was an investigation that went nine months, and this is all they have?” Special Judge Patricia Ann Cosgrove accepted the not-guilty pleas Friday in Jefferson County court and let the four remain free without bond. In total, six individuals have been indicted by the rape investigation grand jury, whose work is finished. McVey and three others are charged with trying to thwart the investigation into the August 2012 rape of the West Virginia girl by the football players. The players were convict-

ed in March and sentenced to the state’s juvenile detention system. McVey is Steubenville’s superintendent. The others are former Steubenville schools’ technology director William Rhinaman, football team strength coach Seth Fluharty and volunteer football coach Matt Belardine. A fifth defendant, elementary school principal Lynnett Gorman, is accused of failing to report possible child abuse, apparently involving a teen sex and drinking party in April 2012 unrelated to the West Virginia girl’s rape, her attorney, Dennis McNamara, said after the hearing.

Thursday in U.S. District Court in Santa Ana and Los Angeles County Superior Court indicated both sides would begin an “intensive settlement process” next month. The Japanese automaker, which has recalled millions of cars since 2009 over the acceleration issue, agreed to the negotiations to make resolv-

ing the cases more efficient, spokeswoman Carly Schaffner told The Associated Press on Friday. Cases that don’t settle after a two-stage mediation process will go back to court for trial, said plaintiffs’ co-lead counsel Mark Robinson Jr., but most of the 375 claims will be resolved.

U.S. pressured to find CIA contractor By LARA JAKES The Associated Press WASHINGTON – The Obama administration faced intensified pressure Friday to find former CIA contractor Robert Levinson – both from lawmakers and the Levinson family – nearly seven years after he disappeared in Iran during what now has been revealed as an unofficial spy mission. Levinson’s family urged the government “to step up and take care of one of its own.” Members of Congress said they wanted to know more about the case, which led to three veteran analysts being forced out of the agency and seven others being disciplined. Levinson vanished after

a March 2007 meeting with an admitted killer on Kish Island, an Iranian resort. For years, the U.S. publicly described him as a private citizen who traveled to the tiny Persian Gulf island on business. But an Associated Press investigation revealed that Levinson actually was a contractor working for the CIA, and was paid by a team of agency analysts who were acting without authority to run spy operations to gather intelligence. If he is still alive at age 65, Levinson has been captive longer than any other American known to be held overseas. White House spokesman Jay Carney said Levinson, who retired after 28 years at the FBI and Drug Enforce-

ment Administration, was not a U.S. employee at the time of his disappearance. A contractor would not be considered a government employee, but the CIA paid Levinson’s family about $120,000, the value of the new contract the agency was preparing for him when he left for Iran, and the government gave the family a $2.5 million annuity, which provides taxfree income, multiple people briefed on the deal said. No one wanted a lawsuit that would air the secret details. Carney declined to discuss the case in detail but said numerous U.S. officials, including President Barack Obama, have pressed Iran for help on finding and returning Levinson.

New drug, study method show breast cancer promise By MARILYNN MARCHIONE The Associated Press SAN ANTONIO – A novel way to speed the testing of cancer drugs and quickly separate winners from duds has yielded its first big result: an experimental medicine that shows promise against a hard-to-treat form of breast cancer. The method involves studying drugs in small groups of people and using advanced statistical techniques to analyze the results as they come in, instead of waiting for all the data to arrive. Whether the drug, velipa-

rib, ever makes it to market remains to be seen, but it has shown enough potential to advance to final-phase testing aimed at Food and Drug Administration approval. Bringing a new cancer drug to market usually takes more than a decade and tests in thousands of patients, and costs more than $1 billion. Companies can’t afford many studies like that, and patients can’t wait years for potentially life-saving medicines, said Don Berry, a biostatistician at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. He helped design the novel analytical method discussed

Friday at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, an international conference. Researchers testing a drug usually don’t see results until they’re all in, to prevent biasing the study. But several years ago, an unusual partnership decided to try a new way. It involves the National Cancer Institute, the FDA, drug companies, dozens of cancer research centers and charitable foundations. The study, called I-SPY 2, puts small groups of women on experimental drugs or combinations, then gives them surgery to see what effect the medicines had.

100,000 gather to see Mandela Many visitors turned away at entrance

By LEE KEATH The Associated Press

By GREGORY KATZ and MARKUS SCHREIBER The Associated Press PRETORIA, South Africa – An estimated 100,000 South Africans lined up in Pretoria to view Nelson Mandela in his casket but about a third of the overwhelming crowd was sent away without being able to file past the bier. Many of the frustrated mourners fought back tears of disappointment on the third and last day of the revered leader’s lying in state. Mandela’s coffin was taken away by a military guard to 1 Military Hospital in Pretoria. The anti-apartheid icon will be flown Saturday to his rural home in Qunu, Eastern Cape where he will be buried on Sunday. Hundreds of people cheered and some burst into song when Mandela’s cortege left Pretoria’s Union Buildings, the seat of government, for the last time Friday evening. “It was amazing,” said Keneilwe Mohapi, who stood with her mother as the impressive motorcade went by. “We couldn’t ask for a more fitting end. It’s an honor to say goodbye to him properly.” “We’re mourning, but I’m grateful,” the 27-year-old said. “He changed my life.” Many waited under a hot sun for four or five hours in a line snaking through an open field to buses that would take the lucky ones to see Mandela. “I feel like I’ve lost a once

A crowd runs uphill to the Union Buildings on Friday after the police announced they would reopen the entrance so mourners could pay their respects to Nelson Mandela, in Pretoria, South Africa. in a lifetime opportunity,” said 22-year-old student Caiphus Ramushun. “I’m frustrated because I got so close,” he added, saying he was only about 100 people away from making it to the buildings. “I spent eight hours in line. I came so close to going on. Instead I was turned away,” he said. Mandela’s body was on display since Wednesday, with larger and larger crowds trying to view it each day. About 70,000 mourners were able to file past the casket Friday, government spokeswoman Phumla Williams said. But Friday’s surge overwhelmed planners, who were not able to move people through security checkpoints and onto buses quickly enough. Officials were handing out water to those waiting. The area where people stood in

line was so crowded that it became a city-within-a-city: Entrepreneurs set up barbecue grills and sold Mandela memorabilia, including T-shirts imprinted with his smiling face and words: “May he rest in peace.” Shortly before Mandela’s casket was removed and taken to a nearby military hospital, a crowd of several hundred mourners eager to pay their last respects broke through police barriers and raced up toward the Union Buildings. An AP reporter witnessed the crowd storming up the hill toward Mandela’s casket and police then chased them over several hundred meters before being able to stop them. The people were joyous as they raced toward temporary structure where Mandela was on view in his coffin.

No violence erupted as police peacefully brought them back in line, according to the reporter. Earlier in the day people also pushed open a police gate. Some fell to the ground as the crowd surged, and several were slightly injured. The government closed all nearby parking facilities around midday because of the huge crowds. Many people said they were bitterly upset and some said the government had done a poor planning job. “I don’t think this government understands what Mandela means to so many people,” said Ali Ndlovu, a 47-year-old telecoms technician who stood in line for several hours before being turned back. “If they understood, they would have given us more than three days. I’m just very disappointed.”

More purges may follow N. Korea execution By ERIC TALMADGE and FOSTER KLUG The Associated Press PYONGYANG, North Korea – The execution of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s uncle brought a swift and violent end to a man long considered the country’s second most powerful figure. But while Jang Song Thaek is now gone, the fallout from his purge is not over. In a stunning reversal of the popular image of Jang as a mentor and father figure guiding young Kim Jong Un as he consolidated power, North Korea’s state-run media announced Friday he had been executed, portraying him as a morally corrupt traitor who saw the death of Kim’s father, Kim Jong Il, in December 2011 as an opportunity to make his own power play. Experts who study the authoritarian country, which closely guards its internal workings from both outsiders and citizens, were divided on whether the sudden turn of events reflected turmoil within the highest levels of power or signaled that Kim Jong Un

Either way, the purge is an unsettling development for a world that is already wary of Kim’s unpredictability amid North Korea’s attempts to develop nuclear weapons. “If he has to go as high as purging and then executing Jang, it tells you that everything’s not normal,” said Victor Cha, a former senior White House adviser on Asia. The first appearance of the new narrative came out just

Bring Yourself to Life

days ago, when North Korea accused Jang, 67, of corruption, womanizing, gambling and taking drugs. It said he’d been eliminated from all his posts. Friday’s allegations heaped on claims that he tried “to overthrow the state by all sorts of intrigues and despicable methods with a wild ambition to grab the supreme power of our party and state.” “He dared not raise his head when Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il were alive,” it said, referring to the country’s

first leader and his son. But after Kim Jong Il’s death, it claimed, Jang saw his chance to challenge Kim Jong Un and realize his “long-cherished goal, greed for power.” The purge also could spread and bring down more people, Cha said. “When you take out Jang, you’re not taking out just one person – you’re taking out scores if not hundreds of other people in the system. It’s got to have some ripple effect.” South Korean intelligence officials say two of Jang’s closest aides were executed last month. Narushige Michishita, a security expert at the National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies in Tokyo, suggested that Jang’s removal shows “that Kim Jong Un has the guts to hold onto power, and this might have shown his will to power, his willingness to get rid of anything that stands in his way.” Jang’s removal leaves no clear No. 2 under Kim, whose inner circle now includes Vice Marshal Choe Ryong Hae, Premier Pak Pong Ju and the ceremonial head of state, Kim Yong Nam.

DAMACUS, Syria – Ahmed Luay’s second-eldest son, a soldier in the Syrian army, fell in battle with rebels just over a month ago. Three more of his sons are still on the front lines in the Damascus suburbs. Luay insists he’s prepared to sacrifice them all in what he says is a war against a terrorist invasion. For Luay and other staunch supporters of President Bashar Assad, the rise of Islamic militants among Syria’s rebels has crystalized a black-and-white vision of the bloody threeyear conflict. The rebellion, they argue, has nothing to do with seeking democracy: It is a campaign by al-Qaidalinked fighters to impose an intolerant rule by strict Islamic law. Their view hardens with every report of religious extremists eclipsing the opposition’s nationalist fighters and secular activists – car-

rying out suicide bombings, kidnapping moderate rebels, targeting Christians, Shiites and other minorities and implementing Shariah in areas they control. In the latest sectarian slayings, state media and opposition activists said Friday that al-Qaida-linked fighters infiltrated the Damascus suburb of Adra and killed residents, most from the Alawite and Druse minorities, which largely support Assad. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least 19 had been killed over the past two days, while other activists said the dead could number in the dozens. Opposition supporters and their international backers have grown increasingly concerned over the Islamic militants, with the U.S. and Britain suspending nonlethal aid to the rebels this week. And fear of these extremists has swung some Syrians who were on the fence to prefer life under Assad.

County Republican groups wait until No breakthrough in Ukraine talks “The only thing the after primaries to endorse candidates opposition heard was The ASSOCIATED PRESS

• CANDIDATES Continued from page A1 “McHenry County is pretty important – we’re always on the list for potential candidates to visit,” county Republican Party Chairman Mike Tryon said. But unlike other Republican-heavy areas like DuPage County and suburban Cook County townships, McHenry County’s GOP groups typically don’t wade into primary battles and endorse candidates or hold straw polls. They wait until candidates win the primaries, and then back them going into November, Tryon said. Tryon, who is also a state representative, said he’s never seen the party at the county or township levels endorse in primaries in his 25 years of political involvement. The county party’s bylaws forbid Tryon as chairman from making a primary endorsement. But that doesn’t mean that Tryon doesn’t have a dog in the hunt. His fellow state lawmakers have their favorites, and no rules that bind what they can say. While endorsements in neighboring counties have been going the way of Rauner and Dillard, the two candidates from the Chicago area, local state lawmakers are solidly lining up behind Rauner, the Winnetka venture capitalist who bills himself as an outsider and has serious financial resources with which to pursue the governor’s mansion. State Sen. Dan Duffy, R-Lake Barrington, was one of the first local lawmakers to publicly support Rauner’s bid, calling him “the only person with the financial experience to turn this state around.” Duffy, like other local lawmakers, was quick to defend the records of the other three, namely to protect working relationships – Brady and Dillard are state senators, and Rutherford is state treasurer. “[My endorsement] doesn’t take away that those three are good guys,” Duffy said. “But if we want to beat Pat Quinn, we need to elect someone who won’t just win a primary, but win in a general election.” Rep. Barbara Wheeler, R-Crystal Lake, likewise threw her support behind Rauner as someone who can “shake up Springfield.” “As wonderful as those three men are, and I know them well, as long as they’ve been in [Springfield] now, they’re now part of the problem,” Wheeler said. Rauner last month won the GOP straw poll in Lake County, and Dillard won the unanimous backing of DuPage County’s GOP township chairmen – Dillard, of Hinsdale, used to be the county’s party chairman. Rauner has won straw polls, with Dillard a close second, in Palatine and Cuba townships in Cook County, and Dillard has earned the endorsements of former Re-

“[My endorsement] doesn’t take away that those three are good guys. But if we want to beat Pat Quinn, we need to elect someone who won’t just win a primary, but win in a general election.” State Sen. Dan Duffy R-Lake Barrington publican governors James Thompson and Jim Edgar. The Barrington Township Republican Organization earlier this month couldn’t make up its mind, so it endorsed all four candidates. But Duffy warned, from experience, that racking up endorsements isn’t everything in politics. Republican David McSweeney ran in the 2012 primary for the 52nd House District against former Rep. Kent Gaffney, who was chosen by the GOP establishment to hold the seat after former Rep. Mark Beaubien died. Gaffney swept practically every endorsement there was to have – save that of Duffy, who was never enamored by the selection process and backed McSweeney. McSweeney came out on top of a three-way primary and handily won a challenge that November from Beaubien’s widow, who ran as an independent to challenge him. McSweeney, R-Barrington Hills, said he will not officially endorse a candidate until early next year. But he made it clear for

the record that Rauner is a very close friend. “I know Bruce is going to fight for lower taxes, less spending and real reform,” McSweeney said. “I think it’s a strong field, and it’s central that we beat Pat Quinn.” McHenry County Board Chairwoman Tina Hill, R-Woodstock, is throwing her support behind Rutherford, of downstate Chenoa. “He’s done a tremendous job as a public servant, as treasurer and a state senator, and when it comes to politics, you have to be able to win,” Hill said. Local state Sens. Pam Althoff, R-McHenry, and Karen McConnaughay, R-St. Charles, could not be reached for comment. Althoff endorsed Dillard in his 2010 gubernatorial run. Money talks louder than endorsements, and Rauner has a lot of it, so much so that the other three candidates’ campaigns are accusing him of trying to buy the governor’s mansion. Rauner last month contributed $500,000 to his campaign, which under state election law lifted contribution caps on all gubernatorial candidates, Democrat and Republican alike. A fifth Republican candidate for Illinois governor, Peter Edward Jones of Franklin Park, filed on the last day to do so, Dec. 2. His campaign does not have a website or other Internet presence, and he did not file with a lieutenant governor running mate. An objection to his candidacy has been filed, and the Illinois State Board of Elections will hold a hearing to determine whether Jones can stay on the ballot.

KIEV, Ukraine – The meeting Friday of Ukraine’s president and the leaders of mass protests against him was billed as a round table, but it was essentially a square-off. The meeting, which also included Ukraine’s three former presidents and an array of student, religious and union representatives, gave no indication that the crisis pitting President Viktor Yanukovych against vehement opposition was any closer to resolution after three weeks of demonstrations that have swelled to hundreds of thousands of people. Yanukovych proposed that amnesty be granted to those who have been arrest-

that there won’t be a force scenario. Do I believe it? No.” Arseniy Yatsenyuk Opposition leader

ed in the protests and said the measure would be taken up by the parliament next week. But opposition leaders countered with demands that the government step down, and for early parliamentary and presidential elections to be held. Reacting to the government resignation demand,

Yanukovych pointed out that the opposition lost a parliamentary vote of no-confidence last week: “The vote already took place, and you saw it.” He also called for a moratorium on use of force by either side. “The only thing the opposition heard was that there won’t be a force scenario. Do I believe it? No,” opposition leader Arseniy Yatsenyuk said after the meeting. The opposition also wasn’t heartened by new official promises that Ukraine intends to sign a trade and political pact with the European Union. Yanukovych’s refusal to sign the agreement last month set off the protests.

Boss said pictures, memories and pets mean most to him • FIRE Continued from page A1 to get him out but the flames kept shooting out.” The next time Boss saw Gucci was when firefighters brought him the remains hours later. Boss’ home, located at 16706 Garden Valley Road in Woodstock, was left uninhabitable after the fire, which

started around 12:30 a.m. Thursday, according to fire officials. It took firefighters from 15 departments more than three hours to extinguish the flames, and crews stayed as late as 7 a.m. battling hot spots and clearing the scene. A cat was also killed in the blaze. The house and the contents inside were valued at around $200,000, said Boss,

but it’s the pictures, memories and, of course, the pets that mean the most. “Years of memories are lost,” he said. “You can’t put a price tag on a family pet. Those things are priceless.” While tragic, Boss acknowledged the fire could have been much worse. His two daughters, ages 7 and 8, were picked up by their mother earlier that night. Boss’ 27-year-old son had gone out

earlier in the evening and hadn’t returned home. “People say what a blessing it was,” Boss said. “I was talking to my family about what else I could have done to save my pets. If I jumped through the window I would have probably perished with them. “There are so many good things that came from a real bad thing. It’s still just overwhelming.”

Residents balance remembering victims with forgetting the tragedy

Boss doesn’t know for certain what caused the blaze. A wood-burning stove and three space heaters were working to heat the house Wednesday night. Boss also suspected that faulty wiring could have sparked the fire. The Woodstock Fire Department is investigating the blaze, according to Deputy Fire Chief Terry Menzel. Boss, who is currently

living with his mother and sister in Delavan, Wis., said he’ll rely on continued support from his friends and family to get him through Christmas this year without his home. “That’s helping me survive right now,” Boss said. “Knowing that there are so many people in the world that want to help. Even complete strangers. … They bring such warmth and care.”



• NEWTOWN Continued from page A1 People might assume the hurt that accompanies tragedy fades with time. But, says Richman, who last Dec. 14 lost his only child, “I miss Avielle more every day.” It’s been a painful and frenetic year, for the Richmans and for all of Newtown. From horror came despair and, soon, attempts at moving beyond one of the nation’s deadliest shootings. There were the logistics of recovery to tend to and decisions about whether to raze the school where so many perished. The Labor Day parade marched on, and as foliage turned red and yellow, small survivors filed back into school with their parents’ shaky assurances they would be safe. Now, with winter on their doorstep once again, the people of Newtown are bracing for the day everyone here simply calls 12/14. “For us, it’s not an event. It’s something we live with every single day of our lives,” says Newtown First Selectman E. Patricia Llodra, who called together a panel of community leaders, mental health experts,

Helping out with life skills The Northwest Herald Editorial Board offers this week’s thumbs up and thumbs down: Thumbs up: To Sunshine Taxi owner Tamra Tomasello, who when contacted by a Woodstock North teacher about ride service for special-needs students, said she’d be happy to provide the rides for free. Through the Woodstock School District 200 Life Connections program, young adults with special needs learn life skills such as grocery shopping, cooking and applying for jobs. Tomasello’s contribution makes it a bit easier. Thumbs down: To looting in towns destroyed by last month’s tornadoes. Three Peoria men were charged Tuesday with felony looting charges after investigators say they were looting a tornado-damaged home in the central Illinois community of Washington. Washington Police Cmdr. Jeff Stevens says authorities got a tip from a TV crew that spotted the men at a destroyed home. Their car had electronics and valuables inside. Rebuilding your life is hard enough, and it’s made more difficult when people have to worry about looters. Thumbs up: To the Cary-Grove basketball team, which donated 2,000 pounds of food to the Cary-Grove Food Pantry recently. The effort, led by junior basketball player Nick Barr, amounted to two truckloads of food and a “couple hundred” dollars in monetary donations.



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

The Great ‘O’

Melvin Watt confirmation The purpose: Confirm Melvin L. Watt, of North Carolina, to be director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency for a term of five years. The vote: Nomination confirmed in the Senate on Tuesday by seven votes – 57 voted “yes,” 41 voted “no” and two didn’t vote. Local representation: U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin (D) voted “yes”; U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk didn’t vote.

Bipartisan budget bill The purpose: To make continuing appropriations for fiscal 2014, and for other purposes. The vote: Passed in the House on Thursday by 118 votes – 332 voted “yes,” 94 voted “no” and seven didn’t vote. Local representation: U.S. Reps. Peter Roskam (R-6) and Randy Hultgren (R-14) voted “yes.” Source: The New York Times’ Inside Congress website


No Labels has right ideas For all the gridlock in Congress we see on TV and elsewhere, many Americans might be surprised to know there is a group of about 90 members of Congress making efforts to find bipartisan solutions to the real problems facing the country. They deserve more recognition and support. They offer a sensible, credible and viable way to break Washington gridlock and provide solutions to America’s problems in the bipartisan way that the vast majority of Americans say they want. No Labels is a bipartisan group of elected leaders that has been quietly pushing an agenda that is aimed at breaking down the barriers to gridlock and proposing common-sense solutions to America’s fiscal challenges. It has recently designated some members of Congress as part of a “Problem Solving Coalition” if they agree to some simple principles such as working together, being accountable, and governing for the future. No Labels is a refreshing approach to governing. The Free Press of Mankato (Minn.)

during our time with Joey.

To the Editor: Oprah Winfrey says old people should just die. She told the BBC: “There are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it, in that prejudice and racism, and they just have to die.” My wife and I took newborn babies into our home from Catholic Charities prior to them being adopted after the nursery for babies of unwed mothers was closed. We had six newborn babies of mixed ethnicities pass through our caring home while raising our own. We treated each baby as our own through the feeding and diaper changing when diapers were not disposable. A 4-month old boy named Joey came into our home from Catholic Charities after having been given up by the prior foster parents. He was African-American and instantly became our child in a Caucasian family. Joey was not shunned in our family life, but treated no differently than other members. We lived in Park Ridge and attended Mary, Seat of Wisdom Catholic Church every Sunday. Everywhere we went as a family, Joey was with us. His care included visits to the doctor and corrective shoes attached to a bar worn daily so that he could walk normal later. He stayed with us through his first Christmas and first birthday before leaving our home with lots of gifts given by family. What Oprah believes offends older people like me. Saying that in England offends Americans. America is more divided today than

How to sound off Robert Meale Woodstock

Greed at the top To the Editor: Finally, legislators did something about the debt in Illinois. Too bad the judges weren’t included. I guess some of them would have to go on food stamps and HUD housing instead of buying a brand-new Lexus or better a Ford or Chevy. As a retired teacher, I am glad some adjustments were made. I won’t need food stamps or HUD housing, and we will continue to buy used cars. Better than what happened in Detroit; the city declared bankruptcy. What I would like to see next is a raise in the minimum wage for people working at Walmart, McDonald’s and other places that pay slave wages. Because of this, we all have to pay for their food stamps, their housing and whatever. It is anticapitalistic for millions and billions of dollars to remain in a few hands, while others are not really making it even if they work more than a 40-hour week. If decent, deserved pay was given, we would have less government and fewer taxes, which is what we all want. The greed at the top of these organizations feel they are entitled to their millions. I don’t think so. If you frequent these places, don’t complain about your taxes or big government. At least to me, you are part of the problem. God bless the United States of America, those who really wish for a United States where true justice exists for everyone and not for just

Pension ‘fix’ flaws To the Editor: The governor and General Assembly, for more than 30 years, have neglected to fund retirements as prescribed by the law. They violated the Constitution by changing retirements. They violate the Constitution by not providing the majority of revenue for education, which explains why our property-tax bills are outrageous. With a few notable exceptions, these nefarious lawbreakers have designed a “retirement fix” that places the state’s financial woes on state workers and retirees without addressing state corruption and waste. State workers followed the law, which required them to belong to the system, and they paid substantial amounts into the retirement system. The retirees did not cause this problem – governors and General Assemblies for the past 30 plus years did. Senate Bill 1 was voted on without researching all the legal implications and without any

independent auditing. Is it any wonder why Illinois ranks as the 47th worst governed state? Senate Bill 1 is designed to cover the corruption in our government, fix blame on people who adhered to the law, protect lawmakers who capriciously violated the law, and permit the politics of corruption and waste in Illinois to continue unabated. Ron Erdmann Spring Grove

Suspension a joke To the Editor: Woodstock Police Sgt. Charles “Chip” Amati is caught with his hand in the cookie jar, so to speak. He has sent inappropriate texts to a 12-year-old girl asking for “sexy pictures,” as well as misuse of a law enforcement database. This guy makes more than $94,000 per year. Because he is “special” he gets a 30-day suspension! Are you kidding me? If this was any Joe off the street, they would be in jail by now. I urge the people of Woodstock to look into this matter. Another look at our great system at work. Not! Cindy Thiele Crystal Lake

Turning Point works to empower abuse victims in safe atmosphere The truth is there is no reason any resident of McHenry County should suffer homelessness, but still many do. Turning Point serves the critical needs of women, children and men whose homes are defined by violence and danger. These individuals live with the constant risk that an abuser will erupt in anger and cause mental, emotional or physical harm. On Jan. 4, 2007, Turning Point opened the only secure emergency shelter for women and children in domestic violence crisis in McHenry County. In 2013, Turning Point is on track to shelter 125 women and children who are homeless because of serious, and potentially lethal, domestic violence crisis. Currently, 90 percent of reported

domestic crime is perpetrated by males victimizing their partners, and, in up to 60 percent of cases, their children. Turning Point is ready 24 hours a day, every day, to ensure our neighbors’ basic right to safety and to protect those in need. The agency’s mission is to confront violence against women and children in McHenry County. Turning Point provides comprehensive services that help adult and child victims, as well as perpetrators, learn how to stop the abuse in their lives. Domestic violence is one of the most heinous reasons for homelessness. The work of Turning Point provides community members with an alternative to living in violence. Our staff encourages empowered

FIGHTING HOMELESSNES Mary Anne Weltch futures free from violence, beginning with the outreach education for our youth. Community outreach programs teach healthy, nonviolent approaches to peer interaction and teen dating relationships. When domestic violence does occur, Turning Point advocates provide 24-hour crisis intervention and stabilization, emergency secure shelter, individual and group counseling for adult and child victims, mental health therapy for adult and child victims, and a program for perpetrators to learn healthy reactions


to feelings of anger. Emergency secure shelter provides victims with safety from severe abuse, and helps empower them to live free of violence. The lives of families change dramatically in the short 60 days that victims may reside in shelter. We seldom know the full outcome of our work, but occasionally a former client will share the news of his or her successful achievement in personal and professional goals. We all know someone who has lived through domestic violence. Their success would not be possible without the collaborative support of other community providers working to establish safety in McHenry County. The Continuum of Care and the

Housing Commission provide two of many networking opportunities for social service providers to find safe and affordable housing, employment, education, transportation, and more for families exiting shelter. Turning Point advocates also depend on our local police officers, workers at the McHenry County Crisis Line, the other Continuum of Care homeless service providers, and court personnel working with our legal advocates. If you or someone you know is in domestic violence crisis, they can find help at Turning Point at 815-338-8081 or through the McHenry County Crisis Line after 7:30 p.m. or on weekends at 800-892-8900. • Mary Anne Weltch is development director at Turning Point.

Cary selects next police chief Finlon, a longtime village resident, scheduled to begin new job Jan. 6 By JOSEPH BUSTOS CARY – The village’s next police chief will be a current Cary resident. Former Lake Zurich Police Chief Patrick Finlon, 53, has accepted the top Cary position. Finlon has lived in Cary for 23 years, and he has coached in the Cary-Grove Youth Baseball and Softball organization, been a Cary-Grove High School booster and helped develop the village’s disaster plan. “I have a vested interest in the

community,” Finlon said. Finlon, who is scheduled to start Jan. 6, is set to earn $110,000 a year. He replaces former chief Steven Casstevens, who left in June to become Buffalo Grove’s police chief. Finlon retired from Patrick Finlon Lake Zurich in November, a decision he announced in September. He said he is keeping his health insurance through Lake Zurich.

“The timing was good, but incidental,” Finlon said. Lake Zurich has about 20,000 people and a police department about the same size as Cary’s department, he said.

Finlon said he plans to address some issues brought up in a recent review of the police department by REM Management Services, but he also plans to sit back and look at the department before making adjustments to its structure. He said he also wants to solidify relationships with the school districts. The village board is scheduled to vote on his employment agreement Tuesday, said Village Administrator Chris Clark.

Emily McDillon of Wonder Lake planned her day off around the possibility of savings at the Dominick’s on Northwest Highway in Crystal Lake. McDillon filled up a shopping cart, saving more than $200 on heavily discounted groceries. Crowds contributed to the lack of carts, long lines and even petty theft. According to a Crystal Lake police officer, a customer had her wallet stolen after leaving it unattended inside the crowded store.

50 percent off closing sale attracts customers to Crystal Lake grocery store By JIM DALLKE CRYSTAL LAKE – The Crystal Lake Dominick’s offered a 50 percent sale on most of its items Friday, a day shoppers described as the store’s busiest in recent memory. Checkout lines stretched into the aisles, shoppers hunted for unused carts, and customers eager to buy the discounted merchandise piled groceries into baskets. All groceries, general merchandise, health and beauty products, dairy and frozen items went on sale Friday. “This is the busiest I’ve seen it,” said Ramon Cuevas, a Cary resident and frequent Dominick’s shopper.

FRG administrator leaves for Lake Villa By JOSEPH BUSTOS

Francesco Mercuri 65, Woodstock

“I feel sorry for the people losing their jobs. This was a good store. It will be missed.”

FOX RIVER GROVE – The village is on the search for a new administrator – again. Village Administrator Karl Warwick confirmed he will be leaving to take the helm in Lake Villa. Warwick, who has a salary of $112,000 in Fox River Grove, will be paid the same amount in Lake Villa to be the town’s first village administrator. According to the U.S. Census bureau, Lake Villa has about 8,800 residents.

Warwick is scheduled to leave the Fox River Grove job in mid-January. He was hired in Fox River Grove in September of 2012 to replace longtime administrator Art Osten. Warwick, who lives in Gurnee with his wife, Tracy, and three children, said the move was a family decision. He added he was having trouble selling his house. “It’s an opportunity to work in proximity to where I live,” Warwick said. “Lake Villa is a great community [with] nice people.”

District 46 board approves 1.08 percent levy increase By EMILY K. COLEMAN PRAIRIE GROVE – The School District 46 Board has unanimously approved a levy totaling $10.7 million, an increase of 1.08 percent over last year. The move makes District 46 one of the few school districts in the area not to request a balloon levy designed to capture all the increase allowed under the state tax cap. The tax cap ties increases in the amount local governments can collect in property taxes to the rate of inflation plus new growth. District 46 isn’t expecting any

new development in its boundaries, Superintendent Lynette Zimmer said. Its overall equalized assessed value – the property value property taxes are based off – is set to decrease again. That means the increase will be spread over current taxed property. The approved increase represents the final year in the Taxpayer Partnership Plan resolution passed in 2011. Under the resolution, the board agreed to reduce the tax rate by 35 cents per $100 of equalized assessed property value.

Welcome to Plan!t Weekend



Enjoy free carriage rides around the Woodstock Square this holiday season. The square also features extended holiday shopping, art exhibits, live entertainment, and more. From 4 to 8 p.m. Available next Saturday also.

For running errands Horse-drawn wagon rides available. From noon and getting to and from work, I add brightly striped rain boots to the look. I mention this to 4 p.m. because last Friday the Golfer in My Life and I headed to Chicago for a little holiday cheer in the city. And I was bundled from head to toe.


DECEMBER 15 The Golfer and I have enjoyed this tradition for THE BLUE SKIES QUARTET quite a few years now and I think we have it LAKESIDE LEGACY ARTS PARK, CRYSTAL LAKE down to a science. I plan just enough that we don’t get there and say “what do you want to The Blue Skies Quartet is a favorite of jazz fans do?’ but not so planned to include an agenda but their repertoire is not limited to jazz music. with times.

Check the listing and confirm before heading to an event. A fresh cream-filled croissant and hot choco-


late cured that and I was able to browse the entire place. After that we headed over to see the ice skating at the Bean, stroll down Michigan Avenue and to pick up Sprinkles cupcakes for the kids. No matter how old they are, I still like to bring home a treat for them. The Golfer refrained here but we got Egg Nog, Peppermint Vanilla, Coconut and Triple Cinnamon for Son and Daughter. With all the walking, the cold and wind were starting to get to us. Traditionally, we go to the Art Institute or a museum for the “inside portion” of the day. This year I thought we could switch it up with a movie. “That means no movie on Tuesday, right.” “Yes, honey, this will be our movie of the week.” So I tracked down “Nebraska,” the new Bruce Dern and Will Forte comedy, filmed in black and white. It’s a rambling road trip of a movie with cast of characters that make you appreciate your own family. For a rating, I always know it’s a good movie if the Golfer and I are quoting lines from it the next day; we both pulled out a few funny ones on Saturday. The day wrapped up with a late lunch at Chicago Pizza and Oven Grinder and then a walk through Lincoln Park Zoo for Zoo Lights. The pizza pot pie was the perfect way to warm up along with the hot toddy of apple cider, whiskey, red wine and cinnamon. Driving home, I thanked the Golfer for a fun day of exactly what I needed. Enjoy this weekend of hustle, bustle and holiday fun. Autumn

LOCAL SHOWTIMES 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-framesper-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

“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

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. But the Coen brothers never fail to weave in bits of saucy irony, giving way for essential comical moments that bring everything full-circle. –

“Out of the Furnace” STARRING: Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Zoe Saldana, Woody Harrelson PLOT: When Rodney Baze mysteriously disappears and law enforcement fails to follow through, his older brother, Russell, takes matters into his own hands to find justice. RATED: R for strong violence, profanity and drug content TIME: 1 hour, 56 minutes VERDICT: The unforgiving back roads and rusted-out mill towns of Appalachia provide the bleak backdrop and emotional landscape of “Out of the Furnace,” a well-act-

ed, beautifully filmed, utterly depressing chronicle of revenge and thwarted dreams in post-industrial 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 sad men and stupid men – but even the best of them have blood on their hands, usually their own. Even when it descends into self-consciousness in a lurid final act, “Out of the Furnace” effectively brings viewers into a space where whatever people had to lose was either squandered or stolen from them. – The Washington Post

Girl’s doubts about religion put her at odds with parents Dear Abby: I’m 16 and come from a devout Roman Catholic family. My parents have taken my brother and me to church every Sunday without fail my entire life. We pray before meals, before school, at bedtime and at other times every day. My room is filled with religious objects. As far as I know, everyone else in my extended family is equally fervent. My problem is, I have never felt very religious. Since I was 10, I have challenged the teachings of the church and, as I mature into adulthood, I’m beginning to identify as agnostic. When I told my parents, at first they were angry

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips and disappointed. Then they told me I was “just going through a phase.” I know this is more than a phase. It’s a personal belief of mine they have been trying to bury my entire life. I can’t continue letting them ignore the real me. The stress of constantly having to lie to my parents about my faith is tearing me apart to the point it interferes with my schoolwork and social life. How can I convince them

this isn’t a phase, and I’m not the Catholic girl they want me to be? If they continue to refuse to acknowledge my religious beliefs, who can I turn to for support? – Agnos-

tic In Stockton, Calif. Dear Agnostic: Your parents should not have minimized your feelings by saying they are only a phase because it was dismissive. That said, you must not allow their devout faith – and your lack of it – to become a contest of wills or a basis for argument. This is an important time in your life with your parents as you enter adulthood. Thank them for the great

foundation they have given you. Tell them you hope they will continue to love you as you explore what your beliefs are on this spiritual journey – because it IS a journey. The opposite of faith is not doubt; it is certainty. Dear Abby: My friend “Molly” and I have been good friends for two years. But this year at school she has gotten new friends, and our relationship is slowly fading away. I’m not sure what to do. Should I wait and see what happens later on down the road or talk to her about it? Please help me. – Left Out

In Cedar Rapids Dear Left Out: What you’re

experiencing is painful, but it is also a part of life. The fact is, friendships don’t always stay the same or last forever. Your idea of talking to Molly about this is a good one because you won’t be left wondering what happened or blame yourself. But you also should explore ways of making new friends. If there are after-school clubs, special interest groups or other activities you can join, they will give you the chance to meet new people. By staying busy, you won’t miss Molly so much, and may even form more long-lasting friendships.

Dear Abby: I’m getting married next year. I am very excited to be marrying my fiancé, a kind and caring man. But I am not at all excited to go dress shopping. What should I do? – No-Frills Girl In Dayton, Ohio Dear No-Frills Girl: No law says you must go dress shopping for your wedding if you don’t want to. Tailor your wedding to your own tastes, and make it simple and casual. It’s your day, so do what feels right for you.

A living will speaks when you can’t The Gift of Massage Dear Dr. K: I’m drawing up a living will, but I don’t understand many of the medical terms I’m encountering. Can you help? Dear Reader: Many people, certainly including me, have asked themselves how they would want to be cared for if they became very sick and unable to speak for themselves. The two most common ways of doing that are to designate one trusted person, such as your spouse, who knows your wishes to make decisions for you – a health care proxy. Another is for you to write a living will. In a living will, you specify how you want to be cared for. Living wills can be the sole way you make your wishes clear to the doctors who someday may be in charge of your care. It also can be a guideline for someone who is your health care proxy. A living will is used to determine how aggressive you would like your medical treatments to be as the end of life nears. I’ll explain several terms you probably are seeing in a draft living will. • Artificial nutrition. When you are unable to swallow anything by mouth, nutrients and fluids can be supplied

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff through a tube inserted through your nose into your stomach. Such a tube can’t be left in long-term (beyond a few weeks). For longer-term use, a tube can be inserted directly into your stomach. That requires a minor surgical procedure. Also for longer-term use, a tube called a catheter can be placed into one of your veins if your gut isn’t working properly. • Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and advanced cardiac life support. If your heart or breathing stops, CPR can be used to try to resuscitate you. CPR is a combination of chest compressions, artificial respiration and defibrillation. In artificial respiration, air is squeezed through a mask placed over your mouth and nose to move air in and out of your lungs. Defibrillation delivers an electric shock to your body. This can restart your heart if it has stopped beating. The next step is advanced cardiac life support, including mechanical ventilation.

• Mechanical ventilation. A ventilator or respirator pushes air into your lungs if you cannot breathe on your own. A tube attached to the machine is inserted into your nose, mouth or neck (through a small surgical procedure). However the tube enters your body, it is passed down into the trachea (windpipe). Mechanical ventilation can be used short-term as a bridge to recovery, or long-term. • Organ-sustaining treatment. This is a set of drugs, medical procedures and machines that can keep you alive for an indefinite period of time. Mechanical ventilation is one common example. Another is kidney dialysis, a machine that cleans toxins out of your blood when your kidneys cannot do the job. Such treatments cannot cure a terminal condition. I didn’t exactly look forward to drawing up a will or a living will. But I saw the burden that not having done so caused the families of my friends and patients. That convinced me to do it.

Divorce final for Jack White



Saturday, December 14, 2013 • Section B • Page 10

A Nashville judge has finalized the divorce between Jack White and British model and singer Karen Elson. Court records show the final divorce agreement was signed by a judge Nov. 26. The agreement names Elson as the primary residential parent for the couple’s two children, and White will get about 150 days with them. White also retained rights to all his musical businesses, including The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, Dead Weather and his record label, Third Man Records. Elson married White in 2005 in Nashville, but she filed for divorce last year.


SNL to add diversity to cast

Beyoncé releases surprise album Beyoncé has released her new album in an unconventional way: She announced and dropped it on the same day. The singer released “Beyoncé” exclusively on iTunes early Friday. She mirrors how Jay Z released “Magna Carta Holy Grail” earlier this year – through a deal with Samsung where he gave the album to 1 million users of Galaxy mobile phones days before its official release. Beyoncé’s fifth effort features 14 songs and 17 videos. Jay Z, Drake and Frank Ocean make guest appearances on the album, while the closing track, “Blue,” features her daughter, Blue Ivy. Justin Timberlake co-wrote the songs “Rocket” and “Partition,” and Pharrell, Timbaland, Ryan Tedder, Miguel and Sia also cowrote tracks. The album caused a stir on social media websites, with fans posting about the release early Friday morning. Twitter said early data shows mentions of Beyoncé spiked by 500,000-plus tweets after she announced the album. Diddy, Alicia Keys and Demi Lovato were among the celebrities tweeting about the topic. Billboard said Friday that “Beyonce” will likely debut on top of its charts next week. “Our early numbers are showing that this is likely heading toward a No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 albums chart with only three days of the tracking week,” said Bill Werde, the editor of Billboard.

“Saturday Night Live” plans to add one or two black female performers to its cast as soon as January. A representative for the NBC sketch-comedy show on Thursday confirmed reports it’s answering complaints about its lack of diversity by staging showcases to choose at least one black female cast member and to hire her within weeks. In recent weeks, the show has seen two dozen candidates in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York. The New York Times reported a special audition for seven or eight finalists will be Monday on the “SNL” stage in Manhattan. It’s “100 percent good for the show to have an African-American woman” in its ranks, executive producer Lorne Michaels told the Times. Criticism for the show’s lack of diversity was spurred this fall by its only black cast members, Jay Pharoah and Kenan Thompson. Thompson voiced weariness at being obliged to play black female characters in drag. Pharoah lobbied for the addition of a specific comic, Darmirra Brunson, of the OWN sitcom “Love Thy Neighbor.” “SNL” has had just four black women in its regular troupe since premiering in 1975, with the last one, biracial Maya Rudolph, leaving in 2007.

Reward offered in TV director case Los Angeles officials are offering a $75,000 reward in the fatal home-invasion shooting of a director on the reality TV show “America’s Next Top Model.” Councilman Jose Huizar introduced the motion Friday in an effort to spur leads in the Nov. 27 killing of 42-year-old James Marcus Howe. Police say a man posing as a solicitor knocked on Howe’s door in the Eagle Rock neighborhood at 10:55 a.m. and tried to force his way inside. A fight ensued, and another man pulled out a handgun,

opening fire. Howe’s wife was injured, but their 6-year-old son was unharmed. Police are looking for two men in their late teens or early 20s and a woman. They were driving a Ford Mustang.

Cheap Trick lawsuit thrown out A Delaware judge on Thursday dismissed a lawsuit filed by three members of the rock group Cheap Trick against the band’s ex-drummer, saying a dispute among the musicians should be decided in federal court in Illinois, where they formed. Guitarist Rick Nielsen, vocalist Robin Zander and bassist Tom Petersson sought a court declaration validating steps they took earlier this year to remove drummer Brad Carlson, also known as Bun E. Carlos, as a board member of three band businesses incorporated in Delaware. The three other band members contend that Carlos, who stopped touring with the group three years ago, lost his voting rights as a shareholder because he had left the band. The longtime group, known for its use of vintage guitars on tour, gained acclaim over the decades with hits such as “Surrender,” “I Want You to Want Me” and “Dream Police.” The band, minus Carlson, is still touring and is slated to headline a Mardi Gras event in New Orleans in March. By agreement with other band members, Carlson stopped touring with the group in 2010. But he disputes their claims that he is no longer a member of Cheap Trick and is not entitled to participate in its business affairs. Carlson’s attorneys argue he was improperly ousted, citing a previous agreement that says any decision involving the band requires the unanimous consent of all four members. The drummer’s lawyers also said the Delaware suit should be dismissed in favor of an earlier lawsuit filed in federal court in Illinois, in which Carlos and former band manager David Frey claim their purported ousters were invalid. The two claim they are owed hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Wolves take it away PR thrives on steals to beat Tigers in crossover

Kyle Grillot –

Cary-Grove’s Katie Barker shoots a free throw Monday in Huntley. Barker is averaging 22.1 points a game.



C-G junior Barker at full speed CRYSTAL LAKE – Many of the first-quarter possessions looked similar – a Crystal Lake Central player being gobbled up by Prairie Ridge’s half-court zone pressure and a Wolves’ layup spit out at the other basket. The score was tied halfway through the quarter, but Prairie Ridge led by 15 at the end of it. “Like coach [Corky Card] said in practice, we’re getting the flow of things more and playing together better as a unit,” Wolves forward Jack Berg said. “We’re getting the rotation of guys dropping and coming around. We’re where we need to be when the ball is trapped and our offense tonight was our defense.” Prairie Ridge ignited its transition game through steals and scored 12 of its 14 first-half field goals on inside baskets. That led the Wolves to a 72-53 victory Friday night in their Fox Valley Conference crossover boys basketball game at Central’s Fieldhouse. “I’d say this was our best game keeping pressure on the ball,” said Prairie Ridge forward Steven Ticknor, who scored 12 points and had a team-high eight rebounds. “But we still have a lot we can improve on. There was good intensity in the first half.” Prairie Ridge (5-2) never trailed in winning its third consecutive game, although Central (0-8) tied the score at 7-7 with 4:10 remaining in the first quarter. The Wolves pushed the margin to 25-10 in the next four minutes.

Prairie Ridge’s Steven Ticknor goes up for a shot as Crystal Lake Central’s Kenny Vesely (left) and Jack Ortner guard him during the first half Friday at Central. Prairie Ridge won, 72-53.

Pick a spot on the basketball court, and Cary-Grove junior Katie Barker can find a way to burn the defense. The versatile guard-forward has quickly become one of the area’s toughest players to defend, and her emergence as a dynamic scorer is forcing the Fox Valley Conference to take notice. The 5-foot-10 Barker can post up her defender near the baseline or stretch the defense as a 3-point threat, shooting 39 percent from beyond the arc and 82 percent from the free-throw line this season. It hasn’t been an easy journey since Barker debuted on C-G’s varsity team as a freshman two years ago. A thumb injury cut her freshman season short, but Barker came back the next year excited to be part of a Trojans team that ultimately won its fourth consecutive FVC Valley title. However, Barker missed the first half of the 2012 season after surgery to repair the meniscus in her right knee, which she tore on the first day of practice. “Working my way back, it was definitely a struggle, because I wasn’t very patient,” Barker said. “I wanted to get back.” In her attempt to get on the basketball court sooner, Barker’s recovery was delayed because of tendinitis that developed from overworking her knee. “I just wasn’t myself at the end of last season,” Barker said. “I didn’t feel like myself because it was definitely hard to come back from that. But I learned a lot from sitting out and watching the team. It was a really good learning experience for me.”

A lot to take in for Lynch, parents in NYC By STEVE NITZ NEW YORK – Jordan Lynch was just soaking everything in. Northern Illinois’ Heisman Trophy finalist was in New York City for the first time Friday. He got to see Times Square, meet four of the candidates – Johnny Manziel, Tre Mason, Jameis Winston and Andre Williams (AJ McCarron is in Baltimore attending the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award presentation), and had lunch with them before speaking to the media Friday afternoon. Lynch’s parents – Jim and Sheila, who met him at LaGuardia Airport early Friday morning – were taking everything in as well. It was also their first trip to the Big Apple.

On TV Saturday Heisman Trophy Presentation, at New York, 7 p.m., ESPN “They’re loving every second of it,” Lynch said before a group of reporters. “Their phones are actually dead right now from taking too many photos.” After NIU’s 7 p.m. practice Thursday, Lynch went home to do laundry. He didn’t get much sleep because he had to get up around 3 a.m. for a 6 a.m. flight to New York. With the situation he was in, the lack of rest didn’t really matter. “This is keeping me awake,” Lynch said. “It’s kind of surreal. I’m happy to be here, and it’s an honor

and a privilege.” Friday night, Lynch was scheduled to take a tour of the city with his family, and he hopes to meet some of the previous Heisman winners Saturday. In a way, he’s sort of the odd man at the event. Present are players from Florida State and Auburn, the two schools playing for the national title, and McCarron representing Alabama, winner of three of the past four crystal footballs. Even Boston College, which boasts running back Andre Williams as a finalist, has had a previous Heisman winner in Doug Flutie. Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel won the award last year. Lynch is attempting to become the first player from a non-BCS conference to win the Heisman since Ty

Detmer did so in 1990, though he’s a long shot. Winston is a heavy favorite to win the award. Lynch said his Huskie teammates were planning on getting together to watch the ceremony, and coach Rod Carey is scheduled to be with Lynch in New York on Saturday. Friday, Lynch enjoyed the experience but really couldn’t put it in perspective. “It hasn’t really sunk in yet. I really won’t look back on it until this season’s over with,” he said. “Twenty years down the road, I think it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, AP photo especially from the path I took and the journey, being at Northern Il- Northern Illinois’ Jordan Lynch poses Friday with linois, Mid-American Conference. the Heisman Trophy in New York.

Northwest Herald /


Kies remembered as ‘just a good guy’ By JOE STEVENSON The picture is etched in Erin Widmayer’s memory, even though it was from several years ago at Park Hills Golf Course in Freeport. Widmayer, then Marian Central’s assistant golf coach, recalls head coach Bob Kies walking out of the clubhouse, orange juice and doughnut holes in hand, and not seeing the lip in the concrete underneath him. Kies went sprawling, wound up with a black eye, cuts on his nose and forehead and blood all over his white Marian polo shirt. But there was no way he was going to any hospital. There was a golf tournament to play. Plus, Kies had other reasons. “He said, ‘Don’t let them take me to the hospital, there’s too much wrong with me, I’ll never get out,’ ” Widmayer said. Kies wore a tough-guy exterior, although those who knew him well claim he was a softy. The former Marian athletic director and coach died at 75 Thursday night in Rockford Memorial Hospital. Arrangements are pending at Schneider-Leucht-Merwin & Cooney Funeral Directors in

Woodstock. Kies, a Marian assistant golf coach, was suffering from pneumonia the last half of the golf season. Again, he didn’t want anything to do with a hospital, at least until after the season. At that point, he was diagnosed with lung cancer. Marian AD Drew Potthoff said Kies fell into a coma earlier this week and Bob Kies was taken to Rockford. “He was just a good guy,” said Potthoff, a long-time friend of Kies. Kies first became known in the McHenry County area as Johnsburg’s first boys basketball head coach. The Skyhawks went 23-6 in their first season, 1979, and won a Class A regional title. Kies was 54-29 in three seasons as coach. “I remember the day I interviewed him,” former Johnsburg AD Jim Meyers said. “We spent a lot of time together on scouting trips, AD conventions, those type of things. He was quite a character. He was pretty mellow and very organized. Statistically, he was meticulous.” Kies developed a tradition with his

basketball teams where he became known as “Cowboy Bob.” Both at Johnsburg and later at Quincy Notre Dame, Kies would enter the court with a cowboy hat, run a few steps toward the student section while waving the hat, then pitch it into the stands. Kies once said he planned on ending it after tossing a hat at QND, but the fans loved it so much, they kept giving him hats, so he kept doing it. Kies came back to McHenry County as Marian’s AD and also coached girls golf. Widmayer, now the Hurricanes softball coach, had limited golf knowledge, but Marian needed an assistant. She learned plenty working with Kies. “I always joked that he was a good ol’ boy, not in a bad way, in a good way,” Widmayer said. “He just told you the way it was, whether you liked it or not. I got to experience him as a coach, not as one of his players. I can imagine him being tough, but he was really a big teddy bear.” Widmayer and current Marian girls golf coach Erin Carver verified Meyers’ description of Kies’ keeping painstaking statistics. Widmayer said Kies called his stats book The Bible and it had how many fairways, how many greens, how many putts and ev-

erything that players hit both in practices and matches. That way Kies had documented proof of how players improved through the year. “You could not believe how much he was into stats,” Carver said. “He didn’t use a calculator. He’d sit in front of the TV in the fall and watch Cubs’ games and work on stats. I don’t know what I’m going to do, I can’t find a stats program as thorough as he was.” Carver was sad that Kies, who also was dealing with diabetes, was retiring and it would be his last season with the players. Kies had planned on to move to a condominium he bought in Dubuque. Anne Kies, his wife, died two years ago after fighting breast cancer. The Kies had three daughters and two sons. One daughter, Kathie Sembach, lives with her family in Woodstock. She said her father had melanoma removed last January and medical personnel thought they got it all. When he was checked in October, however, his cancer had progressed. “He left quite a legacy,” Sembach said. “He touched a lot of lives. He gave a lot of life lessons, more than just teaching someone to play sports.”


Marian Central rolls to Classic pool-play win NORTHWEST HERALD Sarah Benigni led Marian Central’s girls basketball team Friday in a 55-39 win over Round Lake in Pool D of the Northern Illinois Girls Basketball Holiday Classic.

Crystal Lake Central’s Derek Olson dribbles the ball as he is guarded by Prairie Ridge’s Matt Perhats during the second half Friday at Central. Prairie Ridge won, 72-53.

Bradshaw scores 20 to pace PR • WOLVES Continued from page C1 “What helps [in the trap] is when you have good length,” Card said. “We have several kids who are 6-3, 6-4, 6-5 and they’re starting to get a better feel for it. If you can get them into a trap, it’s difficult because we can have two 6-3 kids on top.” Four Prairie Ridge starters – Berg, Ticknor, Michael Bradshaw and Ryan Gilbert – all are 6-foot-3 or taller. Bradshaw finished with a game-high 20 points on 8 of

11 field-goal shooting. Berg added 12 points and Matt Perhats tossed in 11 for the Wolves. Central was coming off a dreadful second half in Tuesday’s 73-24 loss to Huntley. The Tigers were demoralized by Huntley’s 50-10 advantage in the second half of that game. “We looked like an inexperienced team playing an experienced team at the start of the game,” Central coach Rich Czeslawski said. “[Prairie Ridge] is a good team, they run that zone extremely well. We have to execute or

we don’t have a chance.” Central did fight back to cut the lead to 48-40 midway through the third quarter, which Czeslawski saw as a positive. “It looked like we were about to give up and we called timeout and said, ‘Don’t do that. Find a way to stay in the fight,’ ” Czeslawski said. “I could see it in their eyes. This was night and day from Tuesday.” Kenny Vesely scored 12 of his team-high 17 points for the Tigers in the second half. Cavanagh Murphy added 11 and Kyle Fritz scored 10.


Dixon lifts Johnsburg with 3s NORTHWEST HERALD Johnsburg guard Steve Dixon had a big game from behind the 3-point arc in a 79-48 loss to Lake Zurich on Friday night.

8INSIDE WRESTLING Athlete of the Week GRANT SUTTON Richmond-Burton, jr. Sutton came off his fifth-place finish at state last season and started the year strong. He went 7-0 at the Carmel dual team tournament Nov. 29 and 30 in Mundelein with wins against Carmel’s Kenny Barber and Round Lake’s Danny Arteaga. Barber is ranked No. 11 in Class 2A by and Arteaga is an honorable mention in 3A. Sutton is the No. 1-ranked 126-pounder in 2A. On Saturday, Sutton won the Tom DuBois Classic at R-B and was named the outstanding wrestler for the lighter weights.

Noteworthy Crystal Lake South’s Nick Gil admits this season is a little different, being a senior and placing at state last season. What isn’t different is his commitment to wrestling well. Gil said his offseason work and the experience of doing well at state put him in a good state of mind. “My confidence is pretty high from all the stuff I did over the summer,” Gil said. “I know what it’s like placing at state.” In the season opening Moore/ Prettyman Invitational at Barrington, Gil won at 132. In the finals, he defeated Waubonsie Valley’s Jimmy Davis, 7-3. Davis is ranked No. 6 and Gil is the second-ranked wrestler in Class 3A. Gil said the win at Barrington was a good checkpoint for how he was doing. “I feel like I can only get better,” Gil said. Another big checkpoint for Gil will be the Al Dvorak Memorial Invitational at Harlem in Machesney Park, Dec. 27 and 28. Gil did well last year at the tournament widely recognized as the toughest regular season high school tournament in the state. “Last year I took fifth,” Gil said. “I’m looking forward to going out and winning it.” Also winning at Barrington for the Gators was senior Brian Pence at 195. South coach Ross Ryan said Pence has battled injuries throughout his high school career and has largely gone unnoticed. That may change this year after a good offseason and being injury free. “[Pence is] the untold story,” Ryan said. “Everything he did in the offseason really built up his confidence.”

Barker averages 22 points a game • BARKER Continued from page C1 When last season ended, Barker was focused not only on improving her basketball skills but her body, as well. She lifted weights to strengthen her knee to make sure it wouldn’t be an issue during the summer playing AAU ball for Midwest Elite or this high school season. Barker hasn’t had any problems with her knee this season, and her good health has translated into success on the court. Through 11 games, Barker is averaging 22.1 points, 5.8 rebounds and scored a season-high 34 points with five 3-pointers in Wednesday’s win against McHenry. “I wouldn’t say I’ve always been a shooter, but it’s always come pretty naturally to me,” Barker said. “I’d say it’s probably always been one of my stronger points, but when I

was younger I was kind of a post player. Between when I started playing until eighth grade, I was always inside. When I got to high school I got to experience being on the wing more.” Barker has forced opponents into tailoring their game plans to shut her down, like Huntley did in a win against the Trojans on Monday, although she still managed to score 15 points, including two 3-pointers. “Katie’s such a good player,” Huntley coach Steve Raethz said. “She’s just a really good scorer. She’s really improved her game this year.” Saffert credits Barker’s work ethic in developing her game, constantly putting in the time at the gym. Saffert said “there’s no secret” as to why she has become such an important part of C-G’s offense. “Where she’s come from last summer until now, it’s

been phenomenal,” Saffert said. “No offense to any shooters – to me, she’s the first pure shooter I’ve seen for us.” Saffert never had to sit down Barker after last season and explain she needed to be the Trojans’ go-to scorer. It’s a role Barker, in her second season as a C-G captain, has gravitated to ever since returning to the court. Barker and the Trojans will have to battle back if they want to successfully defend their FVC Valley title having already lost two division games. Never one to concede during tough times, Barker is embracing the challenge of leading C-G, especially amid its struggles. “After last season, I knew this year it was kind of going to be my team, I guess you could say,” Barker said. “I was going to be the one to lead them, and I wanted to take that role for the team.”

Winston: I knew I’d ‘be vindicated’ Heisman favorite answers questions about alleged rape By RALPH D. RUSSO The Associated Press

Photo provided

Richmond-Burton graduate Kyle Wismer (right) is a senior linebacker for Wisconsin-Whitewater (13-0), which is in the Division III national semifinals.

Former R-B teammates hope to clash in national title game Throughout their athletic careers, Chad O’Kane and Kyle Wismer have been close friends and regular teammates. Yet if North Central College and Wisconsin-Whitewater win their NCAA Division III football playoff games Saturday, the Richmond-Burton graduates will spend their final college Kyle Wismer game as opponents. “To play our last college game against each other would be pretty cool,” said Wismer, a senior linebacker at Whitewater (13-0), the nation’s fifth-ranked team by Chad O’Kane “We played football, basketball and every other sport. We hung out all the time.” Wismer’s team travels to Texas to face third-ranked Mary-Hardin Baylor on Saturday, while No. 4 North Central (13-0) plays in Ohio against top-ranked Mount Union. “We’re both pulling for each other,” O’Kane said. “We talk every week. It would be an awesome way to finish our careers.” While Whitewater is no stranger to the Stagg Bowl, D-III’s national championship game, North Central is very much a new kid on the block. Whitewater has won four of the past six D-III titles and faced Mount Union in the Stagg Bowl for seven consecutive seasons until the Warhawks missed the playoffs last season. “This is my third time being through the whole (playoff) process,” said Wismer, a second-team All-Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference selection who leads the team with 12.5 tackles for loss and ranks second with 66 total tackles. “I definitely want us to come out on top again. It’s very exciting.” Wismer, a high school tight end and defensive end, credited Whitewater’s coaches with developing his

ON CAMPUS Barry Bottino linebacker skills. “My footwork was pretty bad when I first came in,” said Wismer, adding his biggest improvements have come in “overall strength and footwork.” O’Kane, a high school running back, also was a fish out of water early in his career after changing positions. “I never played wide receiver in my life,” he said. “I felt I was athletic enough to make the switch. Game experience has been a huge thing for me. I got a feel for the game. I got experience blocking and running routes.” O’Kane turned those repetitions into an impressive senior season this fall, making the All-College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin second team for a Cardinals squad that is in the national semifinals for the first time in school history. O’Kane ranks second on the team with 57 receptions, 857 yards and 13 touchdowns. Six of those touchdowns have come in the playoffs. “It’s gotten more special the more I’ve been able to contribute,” said O’Kane, whose team will face a Mount Union program that has won seven national titles since 2000. “We’re really excited for the opportunity. It’s a big stage for our program.” Brauneis honored: Florida senior setter Taylor Brauneis (Prairie Ridge) was named to the All-Southeast Region volleyball team this week by the American Volleyball Coaches Association. Brauneis, who helped the Gators (28-4) advance to the second round of the NCAA tournament, ranks 16th nationally and third in the Southeastern Conference with 11.45 assists per set. The regional award is Brauneis’ second in as many seasons. Missouri Valley headliners: Crystal Lake South grad Vince Benedetto, a senior fullback at South Dakota State,

and Johnsburg grad Thomas Kinney, a junior placekicker at Southern Illinois, were named to the Missouri Valley Football Conference second team this season. Kinney also was chosen for the All-Newcomer team after posting a team-best 94 points and kicking 18 field goals – including a 52-yarder – for the Salukis (7-5). Benedetto served as the primary blocking back for tailback Zach Zenner, who rushed for 2,015 yards and 23 touchdowns for the Jackrabbits (9-5), who advanced to the second round of the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs. Benedetto also caught six passes, including a touchdown. Huntley grad Jordan Neukirch, a senior fullback at Illinois State, was named honorable mention All-MVFC. Neukirch caught 10 passes this season and served as a blocking back for the Redbirds (5-6). Dubuque delight: Prairie Ridge grad Bryan Bradshaw was named the All-Iowa Collegiate Athletic Conference first-team quarterback. Bradshaw, a senior at D-III Dubuque (5-5), led the conference’s highest-scoring offense by passing for league highs of 3,033 yards and 33 touchdowns. Bradshaw’s 305.6 yards a game of total offense ranked second in the conference. St. Ambrose standout: NAIA St. Ambrose cross country athlete Ty Balduf (Marian Central) earned honorable mention All-Midwest Collegiate Conference honors this season. St. Ambrose finished 27th nationally, the second-highest finish in school history. Balduf placed 12th in the 8K men’s race at the conference championships in 29:24 in November in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. • Barry Bottino writes a weekly

Saban, ’Bama reach deal; Towson tops EIU The ASSOCIATED PRESS Alabama coach Nick Saban is staying put. The university announced on its Twitter account Friday night that the football coach has reached “a longterm agreement” to remain with the Crimson Tide. Alabama didn’t release terms of the new deal, which must be approved by the board of trustees. Saban received an eight-year deal in March 2012 worth about $5.6 million annually and seems likely to remain college football’s highest-paid coach. The agreement quells speculation that Saban would take over at Texas if Mack Brown steps down. Saban, who turned 62 on Oct. 31, has led the Tide to three national championships in the past four years with no signs of fading from annual contention. The third-ranked Tide was on the

verge of another Southeastern Conference, and perhaps national title, before losing, 34-28, to No. 2 Auburn in the regular-season finale on a last-play 109-yard return of a missed field goal. Alabama will play Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 2 in New Orleans. Brown didn’t address his future at Texas at Friday night’s annual team banquet, while acknowledging “distractions” for his team. The Longhorns (8-4) will face Oregon in the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 30. Brown met with school President Bill Powers and athletic director Steve Patterson before the banquet. Patterson declined to say what was discussed or if any conclusion had been reached. Towson rallies past E. Illinois: At Charleston, Terrance West ran for a record-setting 354 yards and five touchdowns on a snow-covered field, and Towson overcame an ear-

ly two-touchdown deficit to knock off Eastern Illinois, 49-39, in the Football Championship Subdivision quarterfinals. West set a record for rushing yards in an FCS playoff game. Towson (12-2) fell behind 14-0 in the first quarter as sleet and snow fell in 30-degree temperatures. But West found his footing and ran them back into the game. West’s two second-quarter touchdowns helped the Tigers to a 21-14 halftime lead and he added three more in the second half. Eastern Illinois (12-2) came into the game allowing 146.8 rushing yards a game and was gashed for 472. Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was 38-50 for 321 and two touchdowns. Erik Lora caught 18 balls for 129 yards and a touchdown. Towson finds out Saturday who its faces in the semifinals next weekend.

NEW YORK – Jameis Winston smiled and laughed, posing for pictures with the other Heisman Trophy finalists and the big bronze statue that he is expected to take home. And when it came time to answer questions from the media Friday, the Florida State star quarterback did so confidently and without hesitation, even when his protection broke down. Winston and four of the other six Heisman finalists – Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel, Auburn’s Tre Mason, Boston College’s Andre Williams and Northern Illinois’ Jordan Lynch – met with reporters at a Midtown Manhattan hotel for short interviews. Alabama’s AJ McCarron was in Baltimore accepting another award. Florida State officials tried to limit questions that were even vaguely related to the rape accusation against Winston. The state attorney closed the investigation last week, saying there was not enough evidence to win a conviction. The 19-year-old, who hasn’t spoken directly about the details of the investigation, seemed unfazed by the questions that did come his way. He said he was fine remaining silent about the case. “I knew I did nothing wrong. I knew I could respect the process and I’d eventually be vindicated. It was more about me being silent for my family because I didn’t want to put my family in those situations. “We had so much respect for Mr. (Tim) Jansen and everything going around and knew I did nothing wrong and everything would be OK.” Winston was the only Heisman finalist to show up with his lawyer, Jansen, who strolled in with the Florida State entourage for the media availability. Winston looked like a college student going to class: Black Florida State sweatsuit with garnet trim, and a matching backpack hanging off his shoulders. Winston is the overwhelming favorite to win the Heisman after a sensational season, leading No. 1 Florida State to the national championship game against No. 2 Auburn. But the celebration of his record-breaking performance has been muted by a year-old sexual assault allegation that went from dormant to active last month. The Tallahassee Police gave its finding to prosecutors, who took three weeks to investigate further and

Heisman Trophy finalist Jameis Winston of Florida State, talks to reporters Friday in New York. decide not to press charges. Documents and reports, including the accuser’s accounts to police, have been made public. They are less-than-flattering to Winston. On Friday, the accuser’s attorney, Patricia Carroll, asked Florida’s attorney general to independently examine the rape investigation, claiming it was riddled with problems. A few hours later, Winston was taking questions, mostly about football and the Heisman and being in New York City for the first time. He was asked about dealing with “off-field issues” and two other questions that were indirectly related to the investigation. “It was stressful, but you’ve got to look forward,” he said. Soon after, Florida State sports information director Kerwin Lonzo said: “He’s only answering football questions and about the Heisman. Move on.” Winston then left the media session too soon. Each finalist was supposed to rotate through three tables of reporters. Winston came back for a second session, and Florida State spokesman Elliott Finebloom apologized for the miscommunication. Winston said he had yet to work on an acceptance speech, talked about how he and his mom took Mason out to dinner Thursday night in Florida, when both were at ESPN’s college football awards show, and how he worked as a scout-team version of Lynch when the Seminoles were preparing to play Northern Illinois in the Orange Bowl last season. Winston would be the second straight freshman to win the award after Manziel last year, and he’d be the third Florida State player – the first since Chris Weinke in 2000. What can he do for an encore next year? “Hopefully,” he said, “I can do it over and over again.”


Navy tries to extend lopsided series streak By DAN GELSTON The Associated Press PHILADELPHIA – The Army-Navy football series has long held its lofty spot as sport’s most patriotic rivalry, with pride, prestige and the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy at stake for each service academy. Also on the line, Navy’s 11game series winning streak, which has turned the annual regular-season finale into one of sport’s most lopsided rivalries, as well. Navy (7-4) has not only defeated Army 11 straight times, it has won 13 of the past 14 and 14 of 16. Army’s (3-8) only wins over the last 16 years came in 2001 and 1998. Navy’s Ken Niumatalolo is trying to become the second coach in Mids history to start 6-0 against the Black Knights. With a win, Navy would retain the CIC Trophy, awarded to the team with the best record in games among the three service academies, for the second straight season. “This is the game we want to win,” Niumatalolo said, “but we don’t talk about the streak.”

This game usually ends the season for Army. Navy has one more game left against Middle Tennessee (8-4) in the Dec. 30 Armed Forces Bowl at Fort Worth, Texas. Billed as “America’s Game,” Lincoln Financial Field will be stuffed with Cadets and Midshipmen standing, bouncing and cheering the entire game. Beating Army has become an annual tradition for Navy. None of the Mids want to be associated with a team that ended the streak. Navy’s 17-13 win last season was the tightest margin since the winning streak started. Unlike previous games over the last decade, the Black Knights were in the game until their final 70yard drive. Army had driven to the 14 when QB Trent Steelman and fullback Larry Dixon fumbled on a sloppy exchange. Navy recovered and the Midshipmen on the sideline went wild and rushed the field. “It was painful, no doubt about that, but in this game,” Army coach Rich Ellerson said, “you’ve got to leave this stuff behind.” Navy leads the series, 57-49-7.

Bickell back, won’t play yet By HERB GOULD


Late-game heroics Dunleavy banks in winning 3 to cap rally By JOE COWLEY

Toronto at Bulls, 7 p.m. Saturday, CSN, AM-1000 to cut it to a two-point deficit. Mayo then took a terrible 3-point attempt, and the Bulls made him pay off the miss with Carlos Boozer tying the game with a baseline jumper. Khris Middleton threw up a wild left-handed floater with 30 seconds left to again put the Bucks up, and after a timeout, Butler attempted an off-balance drive to the rim and was whistled for the travel with 19.2 seconds left. But this is a Milwaukee (5-18) team that does very little right, so of course Noah tied Gary Neal up on the inbound, won the jumpball and that led to Dunleavy’s 3-point bank shot. Mayo had one final drive attempt in the final seconds that was blocked by Noah, allowing the Bulls (9-12) to escape. Playing to win: Those hoping for Tom Thibodeau to be all behind tanking the season

to better the franchise’s lottery position in what could be a very deep draft? Not happening. The Bulls coach made that crystal clear Friday. “We’re going to play to win,” Thibodeau said. “I think once you start doing those other things you’re headed down a slippery slope. “Everyone talks about the great player, but what happens to the franchises that don’t get the great player? If you look at history it’s not good.” Instant offense: With Augustin officially signed Friday and making his debut against Milwaukee off the bench in the first quarter, Thibodeau’s hope is this will be a new beginning for the point guard, as well as some much-needed outside shooting. “You look at the guys we’ve had in the past that have filled that role, when you look at C.J. Watson, John Lucas, Nate [Robinson], they were all guys that could effectively play in a pick-and-roll, and I think D.J. can do that,” Thibodeau said. “The three is something we want to try and get back to, and I think he can provide that.”


Briggs to miss 7th game in a row By KEVIN FISHBAIN LAKE FOREST – Although there is optimism for next week, Bears linebacker Lance Briggs (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game in Cleveland. “He got more work today and we’ll see how he is the first of the week, but it raises our optimism certainly,” coach Marc Trestman said Friday.

This will be the seventh consecutive game Briggs has missed, although he did practice twice this week. Khaseem Greene will continue to start in his spot. Quarterback Jay Cutler is listed as probable and will start Sunday. There are no other players on the Bears’ injury report. In Cleveland, the Browns ruled out running back Willis McGahee (concussion, knee) for Sunday. McGahee has 377

yards rushing this season and two touchdowns, but he is averaging only 2.7 yards a carry. Chris Ogbonnaya (42 carries, 224 yards, 5.3-yard average) will get the start. Also out for the Browns are left guard John Greco (knee) and tight end Andre Smith (calf). Jason Pinkston will start for Greco. Coach Rob Chudzinski said quarterback Brandon Weeden was cleared from a concussion and will be Jason Campbell’s backup

Korea’s human rights record, described as one of the world’s worst by activists, the U.S. State Department and North Korean defectors. The defectors have repeatedly testified about the government’s alleged use of indiscriminate killings, rapes, beatings and prison camps holding as many as 120,000 people deemed opponents of authoritarian leader Kim Jong Un, the third generation of his family to rule.

club team. The U.S. is 27-10-7 since Klinsmann replaced Bob Bradley as national team coach in July 2011. It qualified for its seventh straight World Cup and won this year’s CONCACAF Gold Cup, the championship of North and Central America and the Caribbean.

8SPORTS SHORTS Rodman’s North Korea trip will go forward Dennis Rodman plans to travel to North Korea next week to train its basketball team, a trip unaffected by the execution of leader Kim Jong Un’s uncle. Jang Song Thaek’s execution, announced early Friday in Pyongyang, marked an unprecedented fall from grace of one of the most powerful figures in the country as well as its most serious political upheaval in decades. Jang was North Korea’s No. 2 official – behind only Kim. Rodman considers Kim a close friend and has a long-scheduled trip that starts Monday to train the national team. Rodman also has organized an exhibition game in January in Pyongyang to celebrate Kim’s birthday. Rodman could reveal the roster next week. He said former professional basketball players have committed to the game, though he declined to reveal names. Rodman has been criticized for not talking about North

Klinsmann receives 4-year extension from US Soccer U.S. Soccer wasn’t taking any chances of losing Jurgen Klinsmann to another country or club. The federation broke with tradition and gave its coach a four-year extension before the World Cup in part because it feared other teams would pursue him after the tournament in Brazil next summer, USSF president Sunil Gulati said Friday. There was speculation linking Klinsmann to Switzerland and Tottenham Hotspur, his former

Instead, they’re emphasizing tight defense in front of Raanta. And they’re proving their often-stated point about good defense leading to offense. “If anything, you want to play better defensively’’ with a new goalie in net,” captain Jonathan Toews said. “There’s been a lot of scoring, but it’s not going to happen every night. We try to go out and score goals, but we also try to play smart defensively. That’s our main focus.” That focus has resulted in 6-2, 6-2 and 7-2 victories in the past three games, which sounds more like a Wimbledon result than hockey scoring. The last time they scored six or more in three straight games? That was Jan. 21 to 24, 1993. “Antti’s been great,” Toews said. “You can’t ask any more of him. He’s been as solid as they come for a young guy. We’re just trying to play as solid as we can in front of him.” Raanta is 5-0-1, and has not allowed more than two goals in a game while handling the pressure to fill in for the injured Corey Crawford. Flyers’ Schenn fined: Flyers forward Brayden Schenn has been fined $2,230.77, the maximum allowed for cross-checking the Hawks’ Kris Versteeg, NHL officials said. The crosscheck took place in the second period of the Hawks’ 7-2 win Wednesday. Streaking Shaw: Andrew Shaw, who has a five-game points streak (three goals, two assists), can set a career high in that department with a point against the Leafs.

MILWAUKEE – One new face making his debut. One old face back from injury. In the end, a locker room that finally had something to smile about. They can thank a 3-point bank-shot from Mike Dunleavy with 5.8 seconds left for that. In avoiding a second loss to lowly Milwaukee for the second time in less than a week, the Bulls ended a three-game losing streak with the 91-90 win Friday night at the Bradley Center. Yes, Jimmy Butler was back from a turf toe that cost him 11 games. And yes, newly signed D.J. Augustin made his debut after being picked up off waivers, putting in 12 minutes of scoreless work. If it wasn’t for Joakim Noah’s 21 points, 18 rebounds and five assists, it wouldn’t have even reached nail-biter drama in the final few minutes. A dunk by Ekpe Udoh with 1:30 left put Milwaukee up 8883, but O.J. Mayo fouled Dunleavy on a 3-point attempt, putting the Bulls veteran at the line. He made all three

Blackhawks winger Bryan Bickell practiced with the team Friday for the first time since he suffered an apparent left-knee injury in mid-November. No definite return date has been set yet, but coach Joel Quenneville mentioned the Hawks’ home game against Vancouver on Friday as the logical option. The Hawks, who begin a three-games-infour-days stretch Saturday at Toronto, will have some practice time before playing the Canucks. “Bickell looked pretty good. Hopefully, he’s not too far away,” Quenneville said after practice at Johnny’s Ice House. “We have three in four nights. Hopefully, he can play right after that.” Bickell, who has missed 12 games since the injury Nov. 19 at Colorado, stayed on the ice long after his teammates to regain his on-ice conditioning. “I feel great,” the 6-foot-4, 233-pound physical but skilled forward said. “First practice with the team in a while. It feels like I’m getting stronger and better every day.” Although disappointed at not being able to play in Toronto, the Ontario native said he’s onboard with not rushing back at this point in the season. “I was looking forward to playing back home in Toronto,” he said, adding that off-ice conditioning is not the same as skating. “I wish I was playing [there]. But I think that in

a week or two, that will give me more time to make sure it’s right to come back in. Gametime situations are a lot quicker pace.” Bickell, who will remain in Chicago to continue his rehab, had a breakout playoff last spring, when Bryan Bickell he had nine goals and eight assists and was rewarded with a four-year, $16 million contract. Even though the Hawks, who have won their past three games since a rare three-game winless stretch, have been very solid, they’re looking forward to the return of Bickell. “When he’s healthy, we’ll put him back in there and he’ll play his regular role,’’ Quenneville said. “There’s a lot of [line-combination] options that we’ll look at.’’ Bickell’s combination of size and skill adds another dimension to the team with the NHL’s best record. “He’s got some speed, some physicality,’’ Quenneville said. “He has a nice set of hands, a big shot. He’s a netfront presence. You appreciate him not just making us a bigger team, but [a team with] more physicality.’’ Defense leads to offense: The Hawks, who have scored at least six goals in three straight games for the first time in more than 20 years, say that’s not because they’re trying to give rookie goalie Antti Raanta an offensive cushion.

Baking up business Ruth Ann’s Sweets offers full range of goodies By KEVIN P. CRAVER HUNTLEY – As Ruth Ann’s Sweets owner Ann Grenevitch boxed a cake for a customer, she heard the magic words that small-business owners love, and one of the reasons she chose Huntley to set up shop. “I’ll be back, girls. It’s hard to find a bakery around here.” Grenevitch, of Union, opened her bakery last month. It offers a full range of goods, such as cakes, cookies, pies, muffins and rolls, and a comfortable seating area allows customers to sit and enjoy their purchases with coffee. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, the bakery offers artisan breads, and like any bakery, it can whip up special-order pies, cakes and other goodies for special events. Grenevitch’s skill at baking comes from a lifetime of knowledge passed from her late mother, Ruth, whose expertise is reflected in the bakery’s name. As for the business aspect, Grenevitch has a master’s of business administration from North Central College in Naperville. She has taught baking and business as a marketing professor at Kendall College in Chicago and by teaching cake decorating at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft in Algonquin. However, Grenevitch always wanted to turn her “extreme love of baking” into a business. “I knew I wanted to have my own business. I knew that was something I wanted to try and do, and I felt there was a need in the community,” Grenevitch said. “It was just something I could be very passionate about. Ev-

Huntley residents, who she said are happy to now have a local bakery. Grenevitch designed its layout to accommodate on-the-go shoppers and customers who want to stay. Cinnamon rolls, chocolate and berry croissants, lemon bars, danishes, Christmas cookies and coffee cake call out for purchase behind large glass cases. Wooden tables and an electronic fireplace invite people to sit and read, play games or chat. On the back wall is the slogan, “Live the life you have imagined.” “I feel like I live in Huntley. Being close to home helps a lot, and being the only bakery in Huntley helps from an economic standpoint. I think that things happen for a reason,” Grenevitch said.

ALGONQUIN – Fuddruckers opened Friday in Algonquin Commons, replacing Cheeseburger in Paradise. The Jimmy Buffett-themed Cheeseburger in Paradise restaurant and bar closed in October. Houston-based Luby’s Inc. operates restaurants under the brands Luby’s Cafeteria, Fuddruckers and Cheeseburger in Paradise. “Algonquin is an important market for us, and we are committed to being a part of this community,” Peter Tropoli, chief operating officer of Luby’s Inc., said in a news release. “In fact, our involvement here since purchasing Cheeseburger in Paradise is what led us to realize that the family-oriented dynamics of this location were better suited to Fuddruckers.” Fuddruckers, which uses the trademarked slogan “World’s Greatest Hamburgers,” grills one-third, one-half, two-thirds and one-pound beef patties to order and has a build-your-own area stocked with toppings such as tomatoes, lettuce, onions, dill pickles, pico de gallo, Fudds cheese sauce and other condiments. Luby’s Fuddruckers restaurants include 63 companyoperated locations and 116 franchises in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, according to the company’s website. It has restaurants in Schaumburg, Highland Park, Downers Grove North, Calumet City and Matteson.

SAN FRANCISCO – This might be remembered as the year smartphones became boring. Although high-definition displays on smartphones have gotten bigger and their cameras have gotten better, the pace of gee-whiz innovation has dawdled. Smartphone and software makers are working on ways to snap out of this technological lull, although it probably will be at least another year or two before breakthroughs revolutionize the design and function of mobile computing devices. In a foreshadowing of things to come, LG Electronics Inc. is boasting about the G Flex, a new phone with a curved display. Previously available in Korea and Singapore, the concave device arrived in Hong Kong on Friday. “We want to claim this as the future of smart devices,” Ramchan Woo, the head of LG’s mobile product planning division, said during a recent demonstration in San Francisco. If such visions are realized, smartphones and tablets will be equipped with display screens that can be rolled up like a scroll or folded like a wallet. Making the devices even easier to carry around will be important if software makers want to deepen the bond between people and their phones. That could happen as smarter tracking tools and voice-recognition technology let smartphones understand habits and thoughts like a family member. The future smartphone “will be small enough to carry with you at all times without thinking about it, and it will be essential enough that you won’t want to get rid of it,” Silicon Valley futurist Paul Saffo said. “It will become a context engine. It will be aware of where it is, where you are going and what you need.” The G Flex provides a peek at the shape of things to

The device is slightly bowed from top to bottom, allowing it to curve toward a person’s mouth when used for phone calls. It also has a curved battery, something LG said is a first for smartphones. LG applied a “self-healing” protective coat on the G Flex to automatically repair any minor scratches. More than anything, the G Flex is meant to begin the smartphone’s evolution from the primitive state of flat screens. In theory, the curved-screen technology will lead to bendable screens, which will then pave the way to foldable screens. If that progression plays out, it would be possible to fold a larger smartphone so it can easily fit into a pocket.


CRYSTAL LAKE – Torqeedo recently revamped and expanded its service center. Torqeedo, an electric outboard motor company, can repair and troubleshoot eight to 10 motors a day in its new space, 171 Erick St., Unit A-1, Crystal Lake. The service center also holds more than 5,000 spare parts and an indoor testing facility, with another on the way. “Our new center and computer system is a full-circle, one-stop shop for service and parts,” said Sven Kirchhoff, Torqeedo service and quality manager. “Our customers are always our highest priority. This new system helps makes the entire process, from receiving the motor to shipping it back to the customer, even more efficient.” Torqeedo has 12 certified service centers throughout the U.S. and two in Canada.

Pat Quinn and University of Illinois officials have announced an effort to bring research and technical resources to Illinois manufacturers. The newly launched Illinois Manufacturing Lab was announced Friday. It will start with pilot projects at 10 Illinois companies, targeting solutions to manufacturing challenges. Crain’s Chicago Business reported that the state is committing $5 million to the effort and University of Illinois trustees are expected to vote on matching funds for the project. UI Labs is the umbrella organization for the initiative. The manufacturers involved in the pilot projects are Chicago-based Gold Eagle, Addison-based SWD Inc., Chicago-based Transco Products, Dixon-based Raynor Manufacturing, Congervillebased Premier Fabrication, Pekin-based Excel Foundry, Batavia-based Tek Pak, Streamwood-based Trelleborg Sealing Solutions, Lake Zurich-based Morgan Bronze Products and Wheeling-based Numerical Precision.

Wholesale costs fall for 3rd month on cheap gas WASHINGTON – U.S. wholesale prices dropped in November for the third consecutive month, pushed down again by cheaper gasoline and lower home heating oil costs. But excluding volatile energy costs, inflation was mostly stable. The producer price index, which measures prices before they reach the consumer, declined 0.1 percent last month, the Labor Department said Friday. This comes after similar decreases in October and September. Overall wholesale prices have risen only 0.7 percent in the past 12 months. Excluding energy and food prices, so-called core wholesale prices increased 0.1 percent in November and 1.3 percent over the past 12 months.

Motorola CEO talks about global vision By ANICK JESDANUN The Associated Press NEW YORK – Google’s $12.4 billion purchase of Motorola Mobility was widely seen as a way for Google to acquire patents to defend its Android operating system from intellectual property lawsuits. Yet Motorola hasn’t given up on making phones. In August, it started selling the Moto X, the first smartphone assembled in the United States. Last month, the Moto G came out, targeted at budget-conscious Americans and people in emerging markets. Even with its new phone lineup, Motorola remains in transition. Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside, a Google veteran who took the helm in May 2012 with the Internet company’s takeover, sat down with The Associated Press to talk about Motorola, its products and its vision for making the Internet affordable and accessible to everyone. Questions and answers have been edited for length. Q: A lot of people know Motorola for early cellphones and the Razr line. Today, how would you describe Motorola? A: Our product is not necessarily the hardware, but the mobile Web. Our mission is to provide access to hundreds of millions of people, if not billions over time, to mobile services. With Moto G, you’re starting to see the strategy. You have a product that spec for spec does stand up to an

AP photo

Google’s Motorola Mobility CEO Dennis Woodside. iPhone at one-fourth the price. Q: Why couldn’t Motorola as a standalone company move in that direction? A: Google gives Motorola a couple [of] things. One is that willingness to have a long-term vision that’s bold, and really encouraging us to have that vision, and giving us the capital to make the transition. You also have to [believe in] the long-run value of having everybody connected on high-quality devices that can access all the services that we’re used to. Only Google has that

long-term mindset. Q: Where does Google end and Motorola begin? A: Although Google is our shareholder, Motorola is going to operate independently. Our [technology] systems are separate. That actually imposes costs on us. We’d love to be able to leverage Google’s data centers and internal tools. But because Android is a platform available to all [phone makers], if we had any IT access, that independence could be breached. We get the code for the next-version Android at the same time as everybody else. Sometimes it’s frustrating, because you actually want to do more. Q: What’s been the biggest headache in incorporating the two companies? A: The expectations are really high. You have people at Motorola who expect, now that Google owns us, we’re going to do everything together. You have outsiders who expect a completely different software or hardware strategy because the companies are now together. Another challenge is more internal. Managing the cultural shift from a company that had been very engineering-led and driven, but not as consumer-led and driven as we want to become. Q: Even though you can’t get the Android software early from Google, are there things you can get from it? A: Our approach to communication with consumers is a good example.

In our industry, the people who build the products tend not to use social networks. Our product managers are doing that. The product managers of Google, typically they’re very active in ... direct dialogue with consumers to understand the market and understand people. We’ve done several of these international excursions where we take fairly junior product managers [and] have them literally live with normal people and understand how our consumers using their devices. Q: What early signs [are you] seeing in what people are going to be wanting from their smartphones? A: Phones break. They’re glass. That’s likely to change in the next 24 months, as plastic becomes more present and producible. You’ll be speaking to [the] phone, asking it to do things, and it will be responding and actually doing what you intend, as opposed to you reading a command line. Wearables are obviously an area that’s of interest. No one has really come up with the killer-use case that defines what that means and how that works. Q: Who would you consider your closest competitor? A: Apple, Samsung. They’ve shown, especially Samsung, that marketing can really create a product and a phenomenon. We’re never going to have the money that they have to market our products.

More flexible phones make for manufacturing challenges different concepts, according to two analysts who saw prototypes of what’s in the company’s product pipeline during last month’s meetings. Reporters weren’t given a chance to see the prototypes. One featured a tablet-sized display panel that could be folded in half in the screen’s midsection, according to the analysts. The display was thin and could be folded in only one direction. The rest of the panel was firm and flat, the analysts said. Another version had a more flexible screen capable of bending anywhere. An Apple Inc. blueprint for making a device with a curved display was granted a U.S. patent this week, a development likely to feed recent speculation that the iPhone maker is working on a concave model. Apple declined to comment. Other device makers might show off products with curved screens in Las Vegas next month at CES, where tech companies often unveil their latest innovations. Building smartphones with more pliable screens will pose several challenges for manufacturers. The battery, smartphone chips and other key components will have to become flexible, too, so they can bend with the device. Flexible screens also will probably be made of plastic, a material more likely to

• SMARTPHONES Continued from page E1 For now, though, the G Flex’s size makes it too cumbersome for most people to lug around. It has a 6-inch screen, measured diagonally, making it among the largest phones out there. The cost also will limit its appeal. LG introduced the G Flex in its home country of South Korea last month for $940. LG wants to sell the G Flex in the U.S., but hasn’t set a date or price or reached distribution deals with any wireless carriers. Another Korean company, Samsung Electronics Inc., also is selling a concave smartphone there. Unlike the G Flex’s vertical bow, Samsung’s Galaxy Round curves horizontally from left to right when it’s held upright. With a price tag of about $1,000, the phone is more an expensive novelty than a mainstream product. Like LG, Samsung is setting the stage for bigger things to come. Samsung Vice Chairman Kwon Ohhyun told analysts last month that the company believes it can produce a mobile device with a foldable display by 2015. Samsung appears to be working on two slightly

degrade or fail when exposed to high temperatures, oxygen or water. The push to turn smartphones into more intelligent devices appears to be further along than the attempts to transform the display screens. Apple and Google Inc., the maker of the Android operating system and the world’s dominant search engine, already offer voice recognition technology and virtual assistants that enable smartphones to engage in rudimentary conversations and offer helpful tips. The ultimate goal is for smartphones to become so intuitive and efficient that they reflexively cater to their owners’ needs. “You’ll be speaking to the phone, asking it to do things, and it will be responding and actually doing what you intend,” said Dennis Woodside, CEO of Google’s device-making subsidiary, Motorola Mobility. The technological advances could border on the supernatural, IDC analyst Ramon Llamas said. He expects the future relationship between people and their phones to be akin to fictional billionaire Tony Stark’s connection with the computer-controlled armor that he dons to become Iron Man, a comic-book hero popularized in a trilogy of movies starring Robert Downey Jr.

George Bernard Shaw said, “A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.” At the bridge table, we make a lot of mistakes. But with luck, as we gain experience, we make fewer of them. This week, we have been handling the trump suit. Here is one last example -- let’s get it right! West leads the diamond king against six spades. How should declarer plan the play? The South hand is very honorable, with, in Chicago and rubber-bridge scoring, 150 in aces and 150 in spades. It also has 11 winners. Can partner produce an extra trick or two? In this auction, South’s jump to three spades showed a solid suit, set that suit as trumps, and asked partner if he had anything. North’s raise to four spades denied an ace or a king. South’s leap to six spades was understandable, although risky with those two losing diamonds. South must discard one diamond from the dummy

on his third top heart and ruff his last diamond in the dummy. He wins with his diamond ace, cashes the three top hearts, and exits with a diamond. He takes the next trick and ruffs his last diamond with dummy’s spade eight, so there’s no risk of an overruff. Then he draws trumps and claims. Finally, note that this is one deal in which the very bad trump split was lucky. If West had been able to lead a trump, and the defender who took the diamond trick could have led another trump, the slam would have failed.

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

Dr. C. Matesi Licensed General Dentist

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

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

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

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

Dr. Shakeel Signature Dental Group 815-455-3300

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