Ruling delayed in contempt case Ex-special prosecutor takes stand in own defense; judge to decide in January By CHELSEA McDOUGALL cmcdougall@shawmedia.com

Thomas McQueen

ROCKFORD – Contempt proceedings against the special prosecutor once appointed to investigate State’s Attorney Lou Bianchi concluded Thursday, but a judge said he

needs time to digest the document-heavy case before reaching a decision. The case against attorney Thomas McQueen centers on emails between McQueen and investigators from Quest Consultants. He is accused of withholding information that

could have been useful to Bianchi’s defense in two corruption trials. Such materials are required to be shared between parties. Winnebago County Judge Joseph McGraw will render his decision Jan. 10. If found guilty, McQueen could face

a maximum of six months in jail. The emails surfaced when more than 17,000 documents were turned over to Bianchi from Quest during a federal civil rights case against McQueen and Henry Tonigan, another special prosecutor on

the Bianchi case. Tonigan since has settled the civil rights case, agreeing to pay $157,500, but not admitting any fault. McQueen’s attorney, Steve Puiszis, called this week’s

With four Crystal Lake massage parlors recently busted for prostitution during undercover stings, other massage therapy owners such as Terri Latsch (from left), Betty Dietrich and Stacy Barden are concerned with the public view of the profession, which can be beneficial to people of all ages. Latsch and Dietrich are owners of Crystal Lake massage parlors. Barden owns a parlor in Woodstock called Harmony Falls.

‘There are honest people out there’ Massage therapists say arrests gave wrong impression to some By LAWERENCE SYNETT lsynett@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – A longtime Crystal Lake business owner doesn’t want a recent rash of prostitution arrests at massage parlors to take away from the legitimate work provided by others in her profession. Four Crystal Lake mas-

sage parlors have been linked to prostitution in less than two months, shedding a negative light on a profession aimed at helping ailing people. That includes six people arrested for prostitution or violating the Massage Licensing Act. “[These arrests] give the wrong impression to people who aren’t educated about

massage therapy,” said Betty Dietrich, a state licensed massage therapist and owner of Crystal Lake Massage Therapy. “It’s unfortunate because the majority of businesses are very legal, and we do a lot of great work for people of all ages.” Four women were charged Dec. 11 with either prostitution or violating the

act, and none of the employees involved had valid massage licenses, according to the Crystal Lake Police Department. The alleged illegal activities took place at Marigolds Massage, Blue Sky Spa and Aleda Massage. During the undercover operations, police said the

SPRINGFIELD – Stable state funding over the last two years meant key state employee pension funds didn’t have to sell assets to meet payments in 2013, according to a report released Thursday. The State Retirement Systems, covering pensions for ex-state employees, judges and lawmakers, withdrew $29.7 million in 2013, down 88 percent from $248.7 million a year earlier, Auditor General William Holland wrote in an annual financial audit of the Illinois State Board of Investment. The nearly $30 million withdrawal in the fiscal year that ended June 30 is small enough for the Board of Investment to absorb with cash flow, said William Atwood, executive director of the Illinois State Board of Investment, which manages the SRS portfolio. But when withdrawals hit hundreds of millions of dollars, it means selling assets, such as stocks and bonds, highly liquid securities that make up about 80 percent of the board’s $12.9 billion portfolio, he added. The bottom line is, the more a pension system has to withdraw from its portfolio, even if it’s paid back down the line, the more taxpayers are going to have to pick up in the future because the money isn’t benefiting from compounded interest. Atwood said the situation should only improve if recent

GENERAL INFORMATION: 815-459-4040

FDA washes its hands of anti-bacterial claims It was the tenth of a percent of bacteria that I was worried about with anti-bacterial soaps claiming to kill 99.9 percent of germs on contact when washing your hands with them. That tenth of a percent would wreak havoc on your immune system like nothing you knew, so why bother if you are not going to get complete protection? That’s why I wash my hands two or three times, looking to kill that pesky tenth of a percent. I thought washing hands was nearly a sure thing in killing germs. But I might have been wrong. Food and Drug Administration regulators said earlier this week that after more than 40 years of study they have no evidence that anti-bacterial chemicals used in soap prevent the spread of germs. This is reported by Brian Williams of “NBC Nightly News” and The Associated Press, two sources of information that I trust. Forty years. No evidence. Ouch. “I suspect there are a lot of consumers who assume that by using an anti-bacterial soap product they are protecting themselves from illness, protecting their families,” Sandra Kweder, deputy director in the FDA’s drug center, told The Associated Press. “But we don’t have any evidence that that is really the case over simple soap and water.”

8LOTTERY

VIEWS Dick Peterson In fact, not only are the anti-bacterial chemicals not necessarily helping, they may be a threat to public health at worst. Lab rats don’t like some of the chemicals, such as triclosan, with research showing changes in testosterone, estrogen and thyroid hormones. Some scientists think that could increase the risk of infertility, early puberty and cancer in humans. I am of the frame of mind that almost everything causes an increase in the chances of cancer, including the air I breathe, the water I drink, the food I eat too much of, and now the washing of hands before eating that food. Twenty-three years ago I quit the biggest cancer causer – cigarettes – not so much because they caused cancer but because of the inconvenience of being driven outside at work to smoke them. It used to be that you could smoke at your desk, then smoking was restricted to the break room, and finally, it was banned from the indoors. I drew the line there. I wasn’t going to start standing in the rain or cold, or both, to smoke. I wasn’t that desperate.

So I quit, and my boss paid to help me do it. I got hypnotized, and it worked on the skeptic. I was raised to wash my hands at every turn, especially after those involving the bathroom and play. “Wash your hands.” “Did you wash your hands?” “With soap and water?” Those were common commands and questions when I was growing up. And I like to think that I was fastidious about hand washing, spending plenty of minutes washing with plenty of soap and water so that I would not be a germ carrier. My mom might have other ideas about my hand washing as a child, sighing deeply, knowing that the odds were against her with six children within 10 years of each other. Hope for the best. But if the habit wasn’t ingrained in me when I was a child, certainly it wouldn’t happen in my teen years. By then, I would have established my habits, good and bad, that I would carry with me through life. And I like to think I am fastidious about washing my hands today – too fastidious. I can’t help but take that second and third squirt of soap to wash my hands again and again, just in case. And I’m washing my hands a lot these days, now that I am drinking a half-gallon of water a day to stay hydrated, if you know what I mean. Hydration isn’t

skin deep; it apparently goes much deeper than that. Despite all the water I drink, all the hand washing leaves my hands uncomfortably dry. I thought anti-bacterials were in almost all soaps, both at home and in public. I mean, why not? We’re talking about all-out war on germs. I was ready to quit anti-bacterial soap on Monday. But I checked the labels on the soaps we use, and they are not anti-bacterials. I just assumed all soaps contained anti-bacterial chemicals that were fighting the silent war on germs for me. That’s not the case. My good wife was ahead of the anti-bacterial story. She has been buying just plain soap with moisturizers in it for years. If you wash your hands well, the germs don’t stand a chance, anti-bacterial or not. I don’t suppose the Food and Drug Administration is too concerned about moisturizers. Aloe isn’t making any health claims; it’s just softening your skin. But the dryness of my skin provides no evidence of that. The germs just flake off.

Dads to diapers and more, myth-busting survey says By LINDSEY TANNER The Associated Press CHICAGO – The detached dad, turning up his nose at diapering and too busy to bathe, dress and play with his kids, is mostly a myth, a big government survey suggests. Most American fathers say they are heavily involved in hands-on parenting, the researchers found. The nationally representative survey shows fathers’

involvement has increased slightly since the government first asked in 2002, coinciding with research since then that bolsters the benefits of handson fathering. The results are encouraging and important “because others have found the more involved dads are, the better the outcomes for their children,” said researcher Jo Jones of the National Center for Health Statistics, part of the Centers for Disease Con-

Deal requires removal of Chicago ‘petcoke’ piles By SOPHIA TAREEN The Associated Press CHICAGO – Chicago’s mayor and the Illinois attorney general announced an agreement with an Indiana company Thursday that will require it to remove huge piles of petroleum coke from the city’s southeast side and accept no other shipments for the time being. Known as “petcoke,” the material is a black powdery byproduct of oil refining that’s been accumulating along Midwest shipping channels, spark-

ing health and environmental concerns. The deal is part of a pending lawsuit over air quality and lack of proper permitting against Hammond, Ind.-based Beemsterboer Slag Corp., which operates a facility along the Calumet River. Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Attorney General Lisa Madigan announced the details near where residents have complained about the problem. They also touted possible longterm regulations, including proposed city regulations and statewide legislation.

The agreed interim order says Beemsterboer has to remove petcoke and prevents it from accepting, handling or storing any additional materials. It also requires the company to document where it’s sent. The lawsuit, filed by Madigan’s office and the city of Chicago, alleges the company doesn’t have permits to handle the substance, among other things. The company didn’t admit fault in Thursday’s agreement. “The goal here is ... number one, stop the air pollution, stop the violation,” Madigan said.

Chicago radio host Lujack dies By DON BABWIN The Associated Press CHICAGO – Larry Lujack, the immensely popular Chicago radio personality whose sarcasm, grumpiness and sense of humor was unlike anything listeners had ever heard before and inspired and influenced broadcasters around the nation, has died. He was 73. Lujack’s wife, Judith Lujack, said Thursday that he died of esophageal cancer at their Santa Fe, N.M., home Wednesday evening. She said he was diagnosed last January and his health started to deteriorate dramatically in September. Though Lujack’s name may not be familiar today, a quarter-century after his 20-year run at WLS-AM and the former WCFL-AM, it would be tough to understate just how big he was – the star of a massive radio station with listeners all over the state and beyond. Lujack joked, bellyached and criticized his way through a show in a way that is ubiquitous among radio DJs and talk-show hosts today but that was unheard of until he came along. “The point is that with all the top-40 disk jockeys, these

high-energy guys with their fake effervescence, cheerfulness, he was the first one to be real,” said Robert Feder, a longtime Chicago media critic who writes a blog. “He paved the way for new style of radio that followed and everyone who became a real personality owes it in some way to Larry Lujack.” Feder, who wrote about and interviewed Lujack a number of times when he was the media critic with the Chicago Sun-Times, wrote in his blog that “Ol’ Uncle Lar,” as he was affectionately called, was an

pending. Petcoke has been part of the industrial landscape for decades as refineries installed equipment to “cook” residue left over from making gasoline and diesel into a solid fuel that could be burned in power plants and cement kilns. But the sheer volume of petcoke that appeared suddenly in Detroit and Chicago this year – almost all of it in open-air piles – was unprecedented, and caught residents and public officials off guard. Residents complained they could not open windows in

the summer because of all the black dust. The substance isn’t classified as hazardous, but it contains heavy metals and inhaling the fine particles can cause respiratory problems. Proposed city regulations – up for a public hearing in January – call for large bulk material storage facilities to fully enclose materials such as coal, pig iron and petcoke, giving companies two years to do so. Smaller storage facilities would be required to install wind barriers to stop material from polluting nearby neighborhoods.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported that the city’s board of education voted Wednesday to pay up to $30.9 million to Global Workplace Solutions for emptying out and boarding up the schools. An initial contract in April was for $8.9 million. That was later more than doubled to $18.9 million. The city closed the schools this year, saying it could save money and better focus resources by moving the remaining students to other schools. CPS chief Barbara Byrd-Bennett said the increase in closure costs would not be a financial problem, telling the

Firefighters had to break into some apartments to help residents get out. The conditions of those taken to hospitals were not immediately known. Capt.

NSA debate shifts in favor of surveillance limits By JULIE PACE The Associated Press WASHINGTON – In a sharp and unexpected shift, the national debate over U.S. government surveillance seems to be turning in favor of reining in the National Security Agency’s expansive spying powers at home and abroad. It’s happened suddenly, over a span of just three days. First, a federal judge ruled that the NSA’s bulk collection of telephone records was unconstitutional, and then a

presidential advisory panel recommended sweeping changes to the agency. Together, the developments are ratcheting up the pressure on President Barack Obama to scale back the controversial surveillance programs. Even Russian President Vladimir Putin chimed in on Thursday. He said U.S. surveillance efforts are necessary to fight terrorism and “not a cause for repentance,” but he, too, said they should be limited by clear rules. Obama is in no way obligated to make substantial

changes. And, countering the public criticism he faces, he hears internal appeals from intelligence officials who insist the collection of phone and Internet data is necessary to protect the U.S. from terror attacks. But even that argument has been undermined in the course of an extraordinary week. Federal Judge Richard Leon said in a ruling on Monday – its effect stayed, pending appeal – that even if the phone data collection is constitutional, there is little evidence that it has prevented terror at-

tacks. The intelligence advisory panel, which had access to significant amounts of classified information and counted as a member a former acting director of the CIA, came to the same conclusion in its 300page report. Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., a fierce critic of the NSA programs, concluded, “What this says to the millions of Americans who have been concerned that the government knows who they called and when they called and for how long, this says it wasn’t essential for preventing attacks.”

The White House has already rejected one proposal from the task force, which would have allowed for a civilian to head the NSA. While Obama spokesman Jay Carney said Thursday that the president was open to each of the panel’s other 45 recommendations, a U.S. official familiar with the deliberations said that Obama rejected a handful of the proposals out of hand when he met with the panel members this week. The president indicated he was comfortable with about half of the recommendations

but thinks some others need further study, according to the official. That official commented only on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss the process by name. Obama is expected to announce his decisions in January. Congress has been jarred by the new focus on government surveillance. For years, lawmakers had shown little interest in curtailing the programs, but an unusual coalition of conservative Republicans and liberal Democrats has now taken up the issue.

New Mexico legalizes same-sex marriage Baucus to China? The The ASSOCIATED PRESS SANTA FE, N.M. – New Mexico became the latest state to legalize gay marriage Thursday as its highest court declared it is unconstitutional to deny marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples. Justice Edward L. Chavez said in a ruling that none of New Mexico’s marriage statutes specifically prohibits same-sex marriages, but the state’s laws as a whole have prevented gay and lesbian couples from marrying. Same-sex couples have been subjected to a history of discrimination and violence, the justices said. Barring them from getting married violates the state constitution’s equal protection clause. “We hold that the State of New Mexico is constitutionally required to allow same-gender couples to marry and must extend to them the rights, protections and responsibilities that derive from civil marriage under New Mexico law,” Chavez wrote. The high court rejected opponents’ argument that defining marriage as being between a man and a woman relates to the “important,

Same-sex couples pack the Bernalillo County Clerk’s office Aug. 27 in Albuquerque, N.M., with anticipation of obtaining a marriage license. The New Mexico Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage in the state Thursday, declaring in a ruling that it is unconstitutional to deny a marriage license to gay and lesbian couples. New Mexico joins 16 states and the District of Columbia in allowing gay marriage. overriding governmental interests” of having and raising children. “Procreation has never been a condition of marriage under New Mexico law, as evidenced by the fact that the aged, the infertile, and those who choose not to have children are not precluded from marrying,” Chavez wrote. Under the ruling, clergy who disagree with same-sex

marriage can decline to perform wedding ceremonies for gay and lesbian couples. New Mexico joins 16 other states and the District of Columbia in allowing gay marriage either through legislation, court rulings or voter referendums. Eight of the state’s 33 counties started issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in August when a county

clerk in southern New Mexico independently decided to allow the unions. County officials had asked the high court to clarify the law and establish a uniform state policy on gay marriage. Historically, county clerks have denied marriage licenses to same-sex couples because state statutes include a marriage license application with sections for male and female applicants. Thursday’s ruling was a victory for gay rights activists who had been unable to win a legislative resolution of the issue. “This truly is a historic and joyful day for New Mexico,” ACLU-New Mexico Legal Director Laura Schauer Ives said. “The more than 1,000 same-sex couples who have already married in New Mexico can now rest certain knowing their marriages will be recognized and respected by our state.” Miriam Rand, 64, and Ona Porter, 67, both of Albuquerque and plaintiffs in the case, said they were ecstatic when they heard about the decision. “We had a strong sense that the court was going to come down on this side of the opinion,” Rand said.

politics of Senate control The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – With control of the Senate at stake in next year’s elections, President Barack Obama’s decision to name retiring Democratic Sen. Max Baucus as ambassador to China sets off a chain reaction that could give the White House and Democrats an edge in preventing Republicans from gaining a Senate majority. The beneficiaries could be Montana’s Lt. Gov. John Walsh, a Democrat seeking Baucus’ seat, and, thanks to the dominoes of Senate seniority, Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, who is facing a difficult re-election. The advantages would be on the margins, potentially giving the two Democrats a slight boost. But in a series of close elections with Republicans needing to gain a net of six seats to recapture control of the Senate, any lift for Democrats could help them retain control and protect Obama’s agenda. Though the White House has yet to announce the nomination, several Democratic officials confirmed it and White

House spokesman Jay Carney noted that Baucus “has been directly engaged for more than two decades in work to deepen the relationship between the United States and China.” It’s not the first time an ambassadorship to China would have protected Obama’s political flanks. He nominated Jon Huntsman in 2009, essentially sidelining a potential Republican presidential adversary in the 2012 election. If Montana’s Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock appoints Walsh to fill the Baucus seat, as widely expected, that would give the Democratic candidate close to 10 months in the job and higher visibility against the likely Republican candidate, first-term Rep. Steve Daines. On leaving the Senate, Baucus would give up the gavel of Finance Committee chairman. Potential replacements are Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., who has announced he won’t seek another term, or Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore. If Wyden assumes the chairmanship, then Landrieu would be on track to take over the Senate Energy Committee that Wyden currently chairs.

Putin to pardon Khodorkovsky The ASSOCIATED PRESS MOSCOW – In a surprise decision, President Vladimir Putin announced Thursday that jailed former oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky will be pardoned, a move that will see his top foe and Russia’s onetime richest man freed after more than a decade in prison. The development, along with an amnesty for two jailed members of the Pussy Riot punk band and the 30-member crew of a Greenpeace protest ship, appeared aimed at easing international criticism of Russia’s human rights record ahead of February’s Winter Olympics in Sochi, Putin’s pet project. Putin waited until just after his tightly choreographed

annual news conference to make the announcement, dropping the biggest news of the day after journalists had already peppered him with questions in a four-hour marathon. Putin said the 50-year-old Khodorkovsky, who was set to be released next August, had submitted an appeal for pardon, something he had refused to do before. “He has spent more than 10 years behind bars. It’s a tough punishment,” Putin said. “He’s citing humanitarian aspects – his mother is ill. A decree to pardon him will be signed shortly.” The head of the Kremlin’s United Russia faction said he expects Khodorkovsky to celebrate the New Year at home with his family.

Khodorkovsky’s son, Pavel, tweeted: “Very happy news. Waiting to speak with my father to learn more.” Putin’s announcement “came as a big surprise for me, totally out of the blue,” Khodorkovsky’s mother, Maria, told RT television. “We are old people, and we are waiting, hoping to live to the moment when we can embrace him,” his father, Boris, said in remarks posted on the Slon.ru online newspaper. Analysts viewed the decision as a clever step ahead of the Sochi Olympics. “At first blush, the pardon for Khodorkovsky appears to be a rather canny move that will throw Putin’s critics off-balance in the run-up to Sochi, while sending a clear message of self-confidence to

his domestic political opponents,” Andrew Weiss of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace said in a written commentary. In October 2003, masked commandos stormed into Khodorkovsky’s jet on the tarmac of a Siberian airport and arrested him at gunpoint. He was found guilty of tax evasion in 2005 and convicted of embezzlement in a second case in 2010. Critics have dismissed the charges against Khodorkovsky as a Kremlin vendetta for challenging Putin’s power. During Putin’s first term as president, the oil tycoon angered the Kremlin by funding opposition parties and also was believed to harbor personal political ambitions.

U.S. diplomat in Central Africa, amid violence By PAUL SCHEMM The Associated Press BANGUI, Central African Republic – The American ambassador to the United Nations delivered a stern message on Thursday to the leaders of the strife-torn Central African Republic to stop the cycle of violence. On her first official overseas trip, Samantha Power finds herself in an uncomfortable position: Before becoming a diplomat, she made her name as a vocal critic of Washington’s response to past atrocities. Now, she is trying to spotlight the horror here, at the same time that she represents a government which has declined to join France in sending troops to quell the conflict. Instead, the U.S. will spend $100 million to equip and train the African troops sent in to stabilize the country, including providing trucks to get them into villages in the countryside where rival Christian and Muslim militias have

Power is on a one-day trip to the war stricken region. been attacking civilians and each other. “The choice of the U.S. is never between doing nothing and sending in the Marines. How do we use a host of tools at our disposable?” she said, commending the French and African troops for stepping in to stop the cycle of violence so that the difficult process of reconciliation could begin. “They

are putting their troops on the line here on the ground and it is very much in our interest to support them as they try to bring about stabilization and democracy.” The ambassador met with President Michel Djotodia, who swept to power with his mainly Muslim Seleka rebels in March and is now battling Christian militias around the

country, some made up of soldiers from the former regime. All sides are accused of attacking civilians, at least 500 of which died in violence in Bangui itself over the past week. “Every day we are thinking about which tools to employ in order to try to prevent atrocities in the first instance and these cycles of violence that can very quickly take hold – very quickly kerosene can be poured on a situation and a match can be lit,” she said at Bangui’s airport with the air thick from the smoke of the cooking fires from the tens of thousands of people seeking refuge from the violence in camps next to the runway. The president, who arrived for and left the meeting in an armored personnel carrier belonging to the Chadian peacekeeping contingent, has agreed to organize new elections, as early as the end of next year according to Prime Minister Nicolas Tiangay, and then he is expected to step down – a promise Power said the U.S. would hold him to.

Senate OKs defense bill, sends measure to Obama By DONNA CASSATA The Associated Press] WASHINGTON – Congress is sending President Barack Obama a comprehensive defense bill that would crack down on sexual assault in the military and add protections for victims. The Senate voted 84-15 Thursday night for the legislation, which capped a yearlong campaign led by the women of the Senate to address the scourge of rape and sexual assault in the ranks. The White House had expressed support for the legislation, which would provide $552.1 billion for the regular military budget and $80.7 billion for the war in Afghanistan and other overseas operations, a reflection of deficit-driven efforts to trim spending and the drawdown

Now open

in a conflict lasting more than a decade. The bill covers combat pay, ships, aircraft and bases and would provide a 1 percent pay raise to military personnel. “This bill is not a Christmas gift to our troops and their families,” said Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin, D-Mich. “Supporting our troops and their families is what we owe them.” The House passed the bill last week on a strong bipartisan vote. The military’s handling of high-profile cases of assault and other crimes had angered Republicans and Democrats in both the House and Senate, setting in motion what will be sweeping changes to the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

8BRIEFS Over 80 injured in partial London theater collapse LONDON –The ceiling of a London theater partially collapsed Thursday night, showering a packed audience with heaps of plaster, wood and dust. More than 80 people were injured – at least seven seriously – and several trapped theater-goers had to be rescued, authorities said. The collapse at the Apollo Theatre took place at 8:15 p.m. during a performance of “The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time” at the height of the Christmas holiday season. Plaster from a section of the ceiling tumbled down, bringing parts of the theater’s balconies with it, police said. Over 700 people were in the theater at the time, according to the London Fire Department.

26 senators push new Iran sanctions WASHINGTON – More than a quarter of the Senate introduced legislation Thursday that could raise sanctions on Iran and compel the United States to support Israel if it launches a pre-emptive attack on the Iranian nuclear program, defying President Barack Obama and drawing a veto threat. The bill, sponsored by 13 Democrats and 13 Republicans, sets sanctions that would go into effect if Tehran violates the nuclear deal it reached with world powers last month or lets the agreement expire without a long-term accord. The measures include a global boycott on Iranian oil exports within one year and the blacklisting of Iran’s mining, engineering and construction industries. The goal, according to supporters, is to strengthen the negotiating leverage of the Obama administration as it seeks to pressure Iran into a comprehensive agreement next year that would eliminate the risk of the Islamic republic developing nuclear weapons

Syria militants go after opposition activists The ASSOCIATED PRESS BEIRUT – Shortly after the revolt against President Bashar Assad erupted in March 2011, Imad al-Souri quit his computer job to help the protests. He uploaded online videos of the marches and sneaked banned loudspeakers to demonstrators to amplify their voices calling for Assad’s downfall. Not anymore. The 28-year-old al-Souri recently fled to Turkey, fearing he would be killed or abducted by Islamic militants who are now the most powerful force in the rebellion and who are increasingly targeting those seen as opposed to their extremist ideologies. It’s not an idle fear — dozens of activists have been abducted by radicals and, like, al-Souri, dozens of those who shaped the initial uprising against Assad have fled. “They want to liquidate me because I am a secular person,” said al-Souri, speaking via Skype from his apartment on the Turkish-Syrian border, which he shares with two other activists who also fled. “They are waiting for me to return to kill me.” He spoke

Regulator approves oil pipeline to Pacific Coast TORONTO – A panel reviewing a proposed pipeline to the Pacific Coast that would allow Canada’s oil to be shipped to Asia recommended Thursday the Canadian government approve the project. The three-person review panel recommended approval with 209 conditions. Natural Resource Minister Joe Oliver said the government will thoroughly review it and consult with affected aboriginal groups before making a decision on Enbridge’s contentious pipeline. Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Conservative government has staunchly supported the pipeline after the U.S. delayed a decision on TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipeline that would take oil from Alberta to the U.S. Gulf Coast.

In this undated picture released Nov. 23 and posted on the Facebook page of a militant group, a militant fighter exercises at an unknown training camp in Syria. The growing muscle of an al-Qaida linked Syrian group is casting a grim shadow over northern Syria, where extremist militants have turned their attention to seizing activists who cover their country’s war on its front lines. on condition he be identified by the nickname he uses as an activist for his own protection. It’s a depressing turn for anti-government activists. At

the start of the uprising, they worked in secrecy because of Assad’s ruthless security services. Now they fear some of their once-presumed protectors: rebels who took up arms

initially to defend protesters from the violent crackdown by Assad’s forces. The trend was highlighted by two reports issued Thursday.

The rights group Amnesty International said in a report that one of the most powerful militant groups, the al-Qaida-linked Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), is running secret prisons in territory it controls, carrying out torture and summary killings. Children as young as eight are held along with adults in seven ISIL-run detention facilities in Aleppo province in the north and Raqqa province in the east, it said. Many detainees are held for challenging ISIL’s rule, crimes like theft or for committing purported “crimes against Islam,” such as smoking cigarettes. Also, a United Nations panel investigating human rights violations in Syria reported increasing hostage-taking operations by rebel groups, specifying ISIL – an act it described as a war crime. The panel also accused the Syrian government of possibly committing crimes against humanity – a more serious offense – for systematic disappearances of Syrians who are detained by government forces or pro-government militias and never heard from again.

Arrest of young Indian woman sets off diplomatic storm By TIM SULLIVAN The Associated Press NEW DELHI – In New York, it looked like a straightforward case: an obscure young diplomat at the Indian consulate was accused of lying on visa forms so she could bring her maid to the U.S., paying her less than $3 an hour. The diplomat was arrested, processed through the legal system like anyone else and quickly freed on bail. In India, though, the hours that Devyani Khobragade spent in custody have set off a diplomatic storm. Govern-

ment officials roared about her public arrest, particularly her strip search. Cabinet ministers warned of international conspiracies. An Indian official compared the search to a gang rape. Heavy concrete security barriers were dragged by police from around the U.S. Embassy. The Indian media fumed over the country’s humiliation. Foreign Minister Salman Khurshid summed up the feelings of many people here. “It is no longer about an individual,” he told Parliament in an angry speech Wednesday. “It is about our sense of self as

a nation and our place in the world.” Because what happened in New York was not just about an arrest, or about one young woman. Instead, the incident pinballed through a series of cultural land mines, causing an uproar in a country where a woman’s honor is supposed to be publicly defended, insults are profoundly felt and the treatment of one’s maid is, for most, considered no business at all of the authorities. As for the arrest itself: Only the powerless and poor would face arrest for lying on a government form. For

someone in the educated elite, a strip search would be unthinkable. “There’s an expectation here that if you speak English in a certain way you will be treated with a certain deference by the authorities,” said Mihir Sharma, a New Delhi writer and associate editor of the Business Standard newspaper. It’s an expectation that means police rarely harass drivers of Mercedes, and wealthy Indians convicted of brutal crimes can spend years free on medical leave. Then there’s history. The

arrest mingled with long-harbored worries that the U.S. condescends to India, treating it as a poverty-wracked nation with poor sanitation instead of as the world’s largest democracy and a nuclear power. Also, while New Delhi and Washington have become close allies over the past decade, that followed many more years of Cold War distrust, when India had close ties to the Soviet Union, the United States had close ties to Pakistan and the U.S. Embassy here was regarded as little more than a walled CIA encampment.

Army: 5 killed in Afghan crash based in Kan. TOPEKA, Kan. – Five U.S. soldiers based at Fort Riley, Kan., and one based in Europe were killed in a helicopter crash this week in southern Afghanistan, Army officials said Thursday. The Army confirmed the soldiers died when their Black Hawk UH-60 went down Tuesday during a mission in Zabul. One soldier survived the crash. The deaths make it one of the bloodiest casualty incidents in either the Iraq or Afghanistan wars. In 2011, six soldiers from a Fort Riley artillery battalion were killed in Baghdad. Five combat engineers were killed in 2004 when a bomb exploded beneath their armored personnel carrier in Malahma, in Iraq’s Sunni Triangle. The five Fort Riley soldiers killed Tuesday were identified as Chief Warrant Officer 2 Randy L. Billings, 34, of Heavener, Okla.; Chief Warrant Officer 2 Joshua B. Silverman, 35, of Scottsdale, Ariz.; Sgt. Peter C. Bohler, 29, of Willow Spring, N.C.; Sgt. 1st Class Omar W. Forde, 28, of Marietta, Ga.; and Spc. Terry K.D. Gordon, 22, of Shubuta, Miss.

Clients should be wary of businesses that stay open past normal hours • THERAPISTS Continued from page A1 employees charged attempted a sexual act on police officers posing as customers during a massage. Those arrests came less than a month after the owner of Spring Spa in an unincorporated area of McHenry County near Crystal Lake was arrested for prostitution a second time. After her first arrest in late October, members of the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office received additional complaints from residents about suspicious activity at the business. Police said the owner agreed to perform sexual acts for money in both instances. A second woman also was charged with unlawful practice of massage therapy after the second incident. Oftentimes in the case of the illegal activity, it depends on the type of customer and the employee, Crystal Lake police Cmdr. Dan Dziewior said. “If you ask for a little something extra, you are most likely going to be shown the door,” he said. “There are honest people out there giving therapeutic massages. Not all employees take part in this.” Having spent the last 13 years in Crystal Lake, Dietrich can count on her hand the number of times a customer has come in for a massage asking for “something extra.” “If you’re state certified, as is required, you are trained to deal with this type of thing.” Dietrich said. “The first thing I do is stop the massage and

clarify what they are asking. If it’s that, the session has ended right then and there. They are expected to pay for the session and leave.” As is the case at Crystal Lake Massage Therapy, all employees are state certified, with many working with physical therapists and orthopedic surgeons to help clients either recovering from surgery or other physical ailments. That includes clients who have suffered a stroke or a heart attack, those who have had knee or hip replacements, or pregnant women, Dietrich said. “It’s very good work bringing people back to their optimal wellness,” she said. “People shouldn’t let these arrests scare them from looking for professional massage because there are very good, reputable professional therapists in the area that can help.” Some tips for people to look out for while searching for a massage therapist include making sure the person who answers the phone is knowledgeable and can answer all questions related to the treatment. Clients should also be wary of any business that stays open beyond normal work hours late at night, Dietrich said. Once inside the establishment, making sure the facility is neat and clean and employees are dressed professionally is also recommended. Residents thinking about a therapeutic massage can also go to the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation website at www. idfpr.com to find out who is state certified.

proceedings a “selective prosecution,” brought about by Bianchi and his attorney, Terry Ekl, to get McQueen to settle the civil lawsuit. If any witness statements were not tendered to the defense, or altered as Ekl claimed, it was inadvertent, Puiszis said, and not a willful violation of McGraw’s orders. Before Bianchi’s trials, the judge ordered McQueen

to turn over all witness statements and the investigators’ handwritten notes. “What we have here is a good-faith effort by an honest man trying to comply with your honor’s orders the best he can,” Puiszis said. McQueen took the stand Thursday for a drawn-out day of testimony that grew tense at times. Ekl accused McQueen of “outright lying” and being politically or financially motivated to force the state’s attorney’s resignation.

• PENSION Continued from page A1 pension reform legislation holds up. “Portfolio success is contingent on having assets to invest,” Atwood said. “ ... The main issue in managing a portfolio is, leave as much money in there as possible so it will grow. I think that’s the approach policymakers are taking.” The state’s five pension systems – including public school teachers and university employees not under the SRS umbrella – are $100 bil-

lion in debt, thanks to decades of underfunding by state lawmakers and governors. But after years of debate, Gov. Pat Quinn signed into law a repair plan that cuts benefits to pensioners but reduces their contribution and includes measures to ensure the state lives up to its future obligations. However, public employee unions have threatened to file a lawsuit claiming the law is unconstitutional. Adding to the brighter landscape is an improved economy and market. The Board of Investment’s portfolio is up 14 percent from $11.3 billion a year earlier.

The state’s largest pension fund, the Teachers Retirement System, has seen improvement in its portfolio as well, sitting at just under $41 billion this fall, spokesman Dave Urbanek said. That’s lower than the 2007 total but up 44 percent from a recent low of $28.5 billion in 2009. The improvement hasn’t spared the teachers’ system from selling assets. It

Stop wasting money in bleachers dispute Now that McHenry County Judge Michael Chmiel has ruled in the dispute surrounding the bleachers expansion at Crystal Lake South High School, we hope School District 155 will do the right thing and not appeal the decision. At issue is whether the school district was bound by Crystal Lake zoning laws when it completed a $1.18 million expansion of the bleachers last summer. The For the record school district and regional superinThe dollars the district has tendent argue that need to be spent wisely and because the projnot on appealing a decision in ect was approved a lawsuit. by the regional superintendent, there was no need for city approval. The city disagrees. Chmiel said he found no previous cases showing school districts had to comply with or were free to ignore city zoning ordinances. He said in his analysis of the law, city ordinances in zoning matters could and should apply to school districts. What happens next is uncertain. The next move is District 155’s to make and could include retroactively going through the city’s zoning process and obtaining the permits needed for the expansion. Robert Swain, who represents the district, said officials needed to read the full written opinion before deciding on the next move. One option available to the district is to appeal the ruling in appellate court. This should not be a consideration. More taxpayer money should not be spent – by either side – on this lawsuit. Taxpayers are paying a lot of money in property taxes. State funding of education is up in the air. District 155 and its teachers union are in contract negotiations. The dollars the district has need to be spent wisely and not on appealing a decision in a lawsuit. If the district is concerned about precedent, we fail to see the harm in requiring school districts to go through city zoning channels to get projects that could affect residents approved. Both sides are to appear before Chmiel on Jan. 22 to hear what the district decides to do next. Here’s hoping District 155 decides to stop wasting taxpayer dollars.

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Reeder right on To the Editor: God bless you, Scott Reeder. Thank you for so forcefully and eloquently upholding the old and eternal values of this nation. Thank you for being one of the few who have the courage to speak up, instead of going along just to get along in ignorant, shortsighted comfort. You need a wider and higher platform to rouse your complacent, selfish and woefully misinformed countrymen, before the writing on the wall with all it’s falsely built masonry tumbles and buries us all.

The shock we need We like to say in the United States that we value education, but we seldom walk the walk to go with all that talk. Indeed, when the budget ax falls at the state or federal level, it’s not unusual to find a few kindergartners fearfully huddled around the chopping block, jumping with every whack. Is that too graphic an image? Perhaps, but sometimes, it takes a little shock to get folks moving in the right direction. That’s exactly the message we should glean from the 2012 Program for International Student Assessment. In the global exam, American students failed to reach the top 20 in math, science or reading.

Thanks for helping group To the Editor: It’s wonderful to live in a community where business owners will allow a group to advertise an event by putting a sign on their property.

Deserted by Dominick’s To the Editor: The holiday season has lost some of its joy and luster in Fox River Grove. Our only food store, Dominick’s Finer Foods, is shuttering its doors, leaving us in our own food desert. My heart goes out to the many wonderful employees who have served us so well and now will be without jobs right around Christmas. This is especially cruel. What makes me more upset is that a very generous golden deal was given to Dominick’s to grace us with its presence. It killed off all of its competition by forcing the closure of Amstadt’s Finer Foods, Doc’s Drugs and even a video store. These were small businesses that were family owned. And to add to the goodies given to corporate Dominick’s, it was given a 22-year long TIF deal wherein it paid no taxes. So, in its entire tenure here, it has not paid a penny to help support our schools or our town. Our town always has had a food

store here. The new CEO, in a quest to make himself look good and add a modest boost in Safeway’s stock prices, has shuttered all Chicago area Dominick’s stores, leaving its faithful customers and workers in the dust. He’s very short-sighted and unimaginative in his attempt to improve the bottom line of the corporation. It would be wonderful to welcome a family-owned small business to our community that will see us as more than mere ticks on a stock quote. Judy Mascolino Fox River Grove

in pension is not generous: Get off your high horse. Does this man realize how many retirees have to live on a fraction of this amount? My husband worked several decades for an electronics giant, but his pension is less than $8,000, most of it eaten up by health insurance premiums. Our combined household income from pension, Social Security and two part-time jobs is still less than one government worker’s pension. Shame on you, Mr. Wilcox. Let’s hope you will never have to make decisions such as whether to buy groceries or medications because you can’t afford both at the same time. No wonder government workers are often regarded with scorn. Inga Norden Richmond

This Congress makes us yearn for the do-nothing Congress This congressional session is historic: It’s the least productive, most unpopular in memory, and makes the 80th Congress, famously labeled “do nothing” by President Harry Truman, appear prolific. For the first time, public approval of Congress is below 10 percent. This session, which adjourns at the end of the week, has passed fewer bills than any session since World War II – the recent deeply diluted budget measure a rare semi-significant exception – and cheap political games have dominated. The blame is bipartisan, and the White House made some egregious errors. Still, this Congress bears a Republican stamp, with the tone and agenda often set by the right wing of the party. The Senate-passed immigration bill languishes in the House, even though it commands support from a majority of the members. Republican leaders won’t bring it up lest they face a revolt from the party rank and file.

The farm bill is stalled. It has many flaws, but a major impediment is right-wing Republicans who insist that food stamps for the neediest must be slashed. The recently completed budget agreement could have been a big deal, with more than $1 trillion in long-term deficit reduction through major entitlement changes and closing tax loopholes or preferences. That could have won White House support and, with pressure, a majority of reluctant congressional Democrats. It would have been a shot in the arm to business confidence and markets. The Republican right would have gone ballistic; that deal never got on the table. The Senate, with a few exceptions, was almost as dysfunctional as the House. Majority Leader Harry Reid’s decision to change the rules to make it easier to confirm presidential nominations is a dangerous precedent. More dangerous was the Republican minority’s

VIEWS Albert R. Hunt willingness to abuse the rules by waging scores of filibusters against President Barack Obama’s nominations, more than all other presidents combined. Using the filibuster routinely, thus requiring a 60-vote supermajority to get anything done, is unsustainable. Then there is serious oversight, which should be possible even in a partisan environment. Democratic Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan proved that with the Wall Street investigations he led with Republican colleagues such as Tom Coburn (Okla.) and John McCain (Ariz.). A decade ago, in the House, Democrat Henry Waxman (Calif.) and Republican Tom Davis (Va.) teamed up to investigate – and reform – postal and procurement practices and whistle-

blower protections. Together, they investigated steroid use in baseball and the scandal involving the friendly fire death in Afghanistan of former NFL star Pat Tillman. This session, Darrell Issa, the California Republican and chairman of the House Oversight Committee, has held hearings on the Internal Revenue Service, the deaths of Americans in Libya, the Affordable Care Act and Attorney General Eric Holder. These proceedings have been characterized by unsubstantiated charges, rogue staff behavior, misleading leaks of selective information and a refusal to consider anything that might prove contrary to the chairman’s objectives. With a reckless disregard for facts, Issa calls his targets liars. He has been an embarrassment to more than a few fellow Republicans. Correctives aren’t easy. Some advocates see reforming the partisan way House districts are drawn as the solution and are encouraged

that mainstream conservative powerhouses such as Karl Rove’s money machine and the Chamber of Commerce are threatening to take on the party’s right. The former is unlikely and wouldn’t affect the Senate, the latter a paper tiger. The only right-wing incumbent targeted so far is a U.S. representative from Grand Rapids, Mich. Ironically, said political scientist Charles O. Jones, academics used to see more disciplined political parties as the way to encourage responsible governing. “Now, we see narrow margins encouraging tight discipline and leaving little space for cross-party negotiation,” Jones said, with “remarkable insensitivity to the political costs of unwavering party unity.” The only way this spiral ends is an election that either ratifies or repudiates the Republican right. • Albert R.

STORE FACES FINE FOR ALCOHOL SALE HUNTLEY – A Huntley liquor store could be fined up to $1,000 for selling alcohol to an underage person during a recent compliance check by Huntley police. Huntley Food and Liquor, 10729 Dundee Road, sold alcohol Tuesday to an 18-yearold special agent who displayed a valid state ID before the purchase, Deputy Chief Michael Klunk said. The store was the only one of Huntley’s 21 liquor license holders caught selling alcohol to the underage agent, Klunk said. The retailers were notified in October that a compliance check would be conducted within 60 days. Huntley Food and Liquor could be fined between $25 to $1,000 for the violation, Klunk said. The fine will be determined during a McHenry County court hearing on Jan. 27. The Huntley Liquor Commission also could decide to revoke the store’s liquor license, Klunk said. – Stephen Di Benedetto

lsynett@shawmedia.com Preliminary weather forecasts show a chance for a white Christmas in McHenry County, but dicey roadway conditions are possible for motorists starting their holiday travel this weekend. While the area remains under a freezing rain advisory until noon Friday, the forecast calls for a chance of precipitation five out of the next six days, according to the National Weather Service in Chicago. The freezing rain could leave up to a tenth of an inch of ice on the roadways for travelers Friday. Freezing rain or light snow will linger through Friday over portions of northern Illinois, west and north of Chicago, according to the weather service. A storm system is expected to affect the region over the weekend with a mix of rain and snow throughout the Chicago area. There is a potential for heavy rainfall and flooding south of Interstate 80, and accumulating snow to the north. Temperatures should hover around freezing the next few days until Monday, when temps drop into the teens. AAA projects 94.5 million Americans will journey 50 miles or more from home during the year-end holiday season, an increase of 0.6 percent from the 94 million people who traveled last year.

MCC trustees introduce Fox River Grove picks its a concealed-carry policy new village administrator By JEFF ENGELHARDT jengelhardt@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – The McHenry County College Board of Trustees considered stricter concealed-carry laws Thursday, potentially adding provisions to the state’s ban of firearms on campuses. Under the concealed-carry law passed by the Illinois Legislature over the summer, all firearms are banned on college campuses. But lawmakers also gave authority to individual colleges to draft policies on concealed carry in college-issued vehicles; establishing “safe harbor” parking lots; disciplining violators of the law; and reporting methods for students presenting a “clear and present” danger. The law takes effect Jan. 1, but the state does not expect to start issuing permits until April. Trustees addressed all four issues in the proposed policy. Trustees agreed to ban firearms from being carried in college-owned vehicles except for law enforcement officers. They also required gun owners to properly store their un-

“The state law is pretty clear. It reads the licensee can carry into any of the parking areas [at a prohibited building]. I can’t see any reason to prohibit it.” Gus Philpot Woodstock resident on concealed-carry law loaded firearm in their vehicles out of sight in a secure and closed container before entering any campus facility. Firearms – even unloaded and stored properly – cannot be located in any vehicle parked in lots C or D. Woodstock resident Gus Philpot said he saw no reason for limiting any parking lots as they are relatively the same distance to the facilities. “The state law is pretty clear,” he said. “It reads the licensee can carry into any of the parking areas [at a prohibited building]. I can’t see any reason to prohibit it.”

By JOSEPH BUSTOS jbustos@shawmedia.com FOX RIVER GROVE – A Grayslake official next month will take the helm of Fox River Grove municipal operations. The Village Board on Thursday approved an employment agreement with Derek Soderholm to be the next village administrator. He will replace Karl Warwick, who is leaving to become the village administrator in Lake Villa. Soderholm’s first day will be Jan. 15. He currently serves as deputy village manager in Grayslake.

The oldest daughter of former St. Charles Mayor Fred Norris, Lynda Lee Norris, 53, lives in a group home for developmentally disabled adults and has a part-time job with Portillo’s in Batavia. Fred Norris, 77, St. Charles’ mayor from 1977 to 1997, is on the Community Leadership Team of Show You Care Kane, pushing voter support for a referendum on the March 18 primary ballot that seeks a 0.1 percent property tax levy increase. Show You Care Kane’s successful petition drive, in which the group collected 34,260 signatures, put the question on the ballot. The money would pay for services for people like Lynda, who have developmental disabilities, such as Down syndrome, autism or intellectual disability, defined as those with an IQ of less than 70. The money raised, about $12 million, would be administered by a Developmental Disabilities Services Board appointed by the County Board. The board would use the funds to provide housing, job coaching, therapy, transportation and other services for more than 1,300 other Kane County residents who are developmentally disabled and on a waiting list for services. “This is strictly a local situation,” Fred Norris said. “The need is profound – how important it is to help people with developmental disabilities find proper housing and activities. With a little bit of aid, we can make them citizens of our community.” Lynda became a client of the Association for Individual Development in 2004, Norris said, after the death of her mother. “She worked in the catering department at Arthur Andersen for years,” Norris said. “She always had an activity and spending money. She was productive. Then Andersen imploded, and they did not have a position for her. Then her mother passed away. I went to AID to ask for activities for her.” AID, which formed Show You Care Kane to advocate for the referendum, provided a sheltered workshop for Lynda in Aurora. Then she went on a waiting list for housing,

eventually getting a spot at a group home for four in St. Charles Township. AID operates 35 group homes throughout its service area including the one where Lynda lives, Norris said. In addition to Kane, the service area covers DuPage, Kendall, suburban Cook and Will counties. The 50-year-old agency offers 20 programs to serve 5,000 clients in 45 communities, according to its website. “As I get older, somebody has to be there to take care of her,” Norris said. “This is giving me a degree of comfort that she is in a secure facility, has a sense of purpose and quality of life. That is why I think this [referendum] is a very important endeavor. There are a lot of other people on the waiting list who need help, too.” ••• Chuck Miles of Geneva is chairman of the board of directors of AID. His developmentally disabled daughter, Emma, will turn 22 on March 3. At that point, Emma will “age out” of school-based program run by Mid-Valley Special Education Cooperative. “She’s on a waiting list,” Miles said. “There are 22,000 people with developmental disabilities in the state waiting for services. Because there’s nothing once you’re 22. We’re trying to find out what we do now.” Miles said the family has been diligent in trying to see whether there are opportunities to keep Emma engaged in the community and maintain the skills she developed working with therapists over the years. “We’re trying to find something that is a good fit for her, a real paid job or volunteer,” Miles said. “It’s important that she stay active in the community.” Miles said if the referendum is approved, and if county officials levy to the full amount allowed, it would bring an estimated 200 more jobs to Kane County, such as additional therapists and construction trades rehabbing houses for more group homes. “Once people begin to understand the magnitude of the need and the relatively small cost of this ... “ Miles said. “The additional tax on a $300,000 home would be less than $100. This is a local election where residents have an opportunity to make such a

huge difference in the lives of so many in Kane County.” ••• But there is opposition. Allen Skillicorn, an East Dundee trustee and anti-tax activist, filed a complaint with the Illinois State Board of Elections against Show You Care Kane, alleging violations. Andy Nauman, deputy director of campaign disclosure for the board of elections, said a closed-door preliminary hearing was to be held Thursday on the complaint. “I cannot go into details because it is closed,” Nauman said. A hearing officer will make a recommendation as to whether Skillicorn’s complaint was justifiably filed, whether there should be a public hearing or if corrective action will resolve the issue, Nauman said. “Whatever the hearing officer writes up, the board decides the next step,” Nauman said. The state already cited AID for being late with quarterly reports of donations and expenditures. The agency won an appeal of the $2,150 fine and did not have to pay it, a state hearing officer said. “They have quite a track record,” Skillicorn said. “There are eight specific violations, most with finances.” Lynn O’Shea, AID executive director, said none of Skillicorn’s allegations have merit. “Anyone can make accusations – there is nothing we can do about it ,” O’Shea said. “None of the allegations have any merit. That is our position.” Another wrinkle for the disabilities referendum is the County Board itself. The enabling legislation gives the County Board the power to levy to the maximum – 0.1 percent – but the county board can levy less than that. Kane County Board Chairman Chris Lauzen would not say whether he would support a lower levy if the voters approve the referendum. “In just my personal opinion, the first issue is will this pass or not,” Lauzen said. “There are few people who are insensitive to the enormous needs our neighbors with developmental disabilities suffer. However, I am also sensitive to people … who tell me they are being taxed out of their homes.”

Spring Grove • Darcy J. Regner, 49, 3912 N. Tamarack Trail, Crystal Lake, was charged Saturday, Dec. 14, with driving under the influence, driving without proof of insurance, improper lane use and failure to signal.

8LOCAL BRIEFS Local woman sentenced for writing bad checks ST. CHARLES – An Algonquin woman has been sentenced to six years in prison for a series of financial crimes. Kelly L. Batchelor, 41, pleaded guilty Thursday in exchange for a sentence of six years for one count of burglary, a Class 2 felony; and one count of deceptive practice, a Class 4 felony, according to a news release from the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office. She also was resentenced to five years, which will be served concurrently with her other prison terms, for violating probation on a 2010 sentence. In that case, she pleaded guilty to accumulating more than $60,000 in debt in her grandmother’s name. Batchelor was on probation when she wrote several checks on a closed bank account, the release said. During one instance, she purchased $329.99 worth of items from a West Dundee retailer and then traded the items for cash at a pawn shop, the release said. During another, she purchased items worth $2,801.50 from a furniture store

in Algonquin. Batchelor will receive 119 days credit for time served. – Emily K. Coleman

Planning process wasn’t easy for Centegra • HOSPITAL Continued from page B1 “It looks fantastic,” Trustee Nick Hanson said. The planning process did not come easily for Centegra. A lawsuit from competitors Mercy Health System, Advocate and Sherman Health ultimately delayed Centegra’s original construction start, planned for late October. The lawsuit sought to overturn a state board’s July 2012 approval of the Huntley project. The state’s health facilities board had previously rejected Centegra’s plan twice. The three competitors contended the state approval should be reversed because Department of Public Health staff concluded the proposal did not meet three of the state’s 20 standards. But a Will County judge sided last month with the state board that the project will meet a future need in an area continuing to grow. Centegra General Counsel Aaron Shepley informed the Huntley board that both

Rendering provided by Kahler Slater Inc.

This is an artist’s rendering of Centegra Hospital – Huntley. Centegra Health System will look to break ground in March on its $200 million Huntley project after the Huntley Village Board on Thursday unanimously approved the final design to build a five-story, 128-bed hospital. Mercy and Advocate, which merged this summer with Sherman, are seeking an appeal to the judge’s decision. The appeal process could last six to 10 months, but it shouldn’t derail Centegra’s construction plans, Shepley said. “The strength of the

[judge’s] opinion will carry the day,” he said. “It’s just a process that we have to go through.” Although construction likely will begin in March, the public won’t have a chance to celebrate the project until the summer. Eesley said they wanted to

wait until the warmer months to do a ceremony that is typically reserved for when construction crews break ground on a project. “We wanted to wait until it was a little warmer and make it more of a community-based ceremony rather than just have the dignitaries,” he said.

Ten people died in holiday crashes last year • TRAVEL Continued from page B1 The upward trend marks the fifth consecutive year of increases and the highest travel volume recorded for the season. The year-end holiday period is defined as Saturday to Jan. 1. Ninety-one percent of travelers (85.8 million) will travel by automobile, an increase of 0.9 percent, according to AAA. Nearly 30 percent of residents nationwide will take a trip this holiday, with more than

25 percent taking a road trip. Air travel is expected to decline slightly to 5.53 million travelers from 5.61 last year. According to the latest data from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety’s annual Traffic Safety Culture Index, one in five of all licensed drivers that drink at least occasionally reported having driven when they thought their alcohol level might have been close to, or possibly over, the legal limit in the past year. Illinois officials and local law enforcement agencies will be out in full force as they kick off their holiday safe driving

campaigns. Illinois has seen 950 traffic fatalities through Dec. 17 – 20 more than the same period last year. Ten people died in crashes last year during the Christmas holiday travel period. The campaign will feature the familiar “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” and “Click it or Ticket” themes and include hundreds of roadside checks for drunken driving and seatbelt use through the first weekend of 2014. Recently released federal data show drunken driving deaths increased 15 percent

from 2011 to 2012, but it also shows a drop of 29 percent since 2007 – from 439 to 321 in 2012. The Illinois Tollway expects 17.6 million vehicles will use the tollway system between Friday and Jan. 2 to travel during the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. The heaviest travel is anticipated Friday, when the tollway expects nearly 1.6 million vehicles to be on the road. On an average day, about 1.4 million vehicles use the tollway. • The Associated Press contributed to this report.

couraged the public to provide as much feedback as possible in the next 30 days before the board convenes for its January meeting to vote. Trustees’ contact information can be found at www.mchenry.edu. “I have been to the county, I have been to several municipalities and I have done a plethora of research,” Parrish said. “I can tell you it’s a very, very difficult issue.”

Don’t outsmart yourself, play to win LAKE FOREST – After an agonizing, palm-to-forehead type of loss against the Minnesota Vikings three weeks ago, the Bears could have gone into hibernation. First-year coach Marc Trestman could have let an overtime blunder spoil his season. The atmosphere in the locker room could have turned sour. None of this happened. Give Trestman credit for calmly providAP photo ing stability. Bears coach Marc Trestman watches from “That’s just the type of coach the sideline in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s he is,” running back Matt Forte said Thursday in a jubilant locker game against the Browns in Cleveland.

man’s coaching strengths because he clearly has many. It also is important to scrutinize Trestman’s decisions as the playoffs approach. On Sunday night, the Bears (8-6) will visit the Philadelphia Eagles (8-6) in a game that could mean very much or very little depending on the day’s events. Everything is hypothetical at this point, but it doesn’t mean we cannot consider the possibilities. Long story short, part I: If the Detroit Lions lose to the New York Giants and the Green Bay Packers

In this scenario, the winner of the regular-season finale between the Bears and Packers on Dec. 29 at Soldier Field would win the division.

Hughes honored as community champion Trojans senior to receive scholarship from Chicago Bears By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com Cary-Grove senior athlete Matt Hughes recently called his grandparents, John and Karen DeVine, with some exciting news. Hughes learned he was one of three winners of the Chicago Bears Community Champion Award, given each year to three Chicago-area football players who display excellence in community service, in school and on the field. The award carries with it a $3,000 scholarship. “They’re season ticket holders,” Hughes said, “so the joke was finally, after all these years, they’re paying Matt Hughes us back a little bit.” Hughes will receive the honor Feb. 17, Presidents’ Day, at Halas Hall in Lake Forest. C-G coach Brad Seaburg, who nominated Hughes, will introduce him and Hughes will have three to four minutes to make a speech. This is the fourth year the Bears have had the Community Champion awards. Crystal Lake South’s Drew Ormseth and Crystal Lake Central’s John Laurence were winners in the 2010-11 school year, the first year the awards were given. Hughes is a Bears’ fan and has attended several games with his grandparents. He was a two-year starter at linebacker for the Trojans’ football team, including in 2012 when C-G was Class 6A state runner-up. He led the team in tackles and was a Northwest Herald All-Area second-team selection. But on-field performance weighed only for 30 percent of the criteria. Community service went for 40 percent and academics was the other 30. Hughes stood out in both areas with a 3.9 GPA (on a 4.0 scale) and with multiple community service endeavors. Last summer, Hughes joined his uncle Dan Hughes’ church group for a trip to Nicaragua, where they spent a week to build a water well for a community. “It was definitely eye-opening to see how they live on almost nothing,” Hughes said. “We take some things for granted up here.” Seaburg received an email from Chris Kearney, the president of the Chicago Metro Chapter of the National Football Foundation, around the end of C-G’s season. Hughes immediately came to mind for Seaburg.

Pait gives Warriors win Major decision in final match downs Trojans By ROB SMITH rsmith@shawmedia.com CARY – In just his third match of the season and wrestling up a weight class, McHenry’s Cam Pait had the fate of his team riding on his 170-pound match against CaryGrove on Thursday. Down one point entering the final match, Pait jumped out to an early lead and defeated Josh Dermont by major decision to give the Warriors a 32-29 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division win. Pait said he went into the match just trying to work his moves. He had two takedowns and back points to go up, 6-0, in the first period before winning 11-3. “I love wrestling under pressure,” Pait said. Moving up from his usual 160 pounds weight class, Pait didn’t think it was a big deal. What he

“We knew it was going to be close,” Gaddy said. “We knew [Cary-Grove] was stacked in the light weights.” A pin by Mike Cullen at 113, a major decision by Logan Hanselmann at 120 and two decisions by Sean Cullen (126) and John Cullen (132) gave the Trojans (1-2 FVC Valley) their first lead at 22-21. McHenry (2-0 FVC Valley) countered with a decision at 138 by Nick Wegner and a major at 145 by Carter Herber to retake the lead, 28-22. C-G’s Matt Hughes earned four points at 152 with a major decision and Emerson Kersten (1160) got a takedown in overtime to put the Trojans up by a point heading into Pait’s match. Hernandez said, with each team winning seven matches, the difference was in how they won. “Coming into it, we had to get every bit of bonus points that we could,” Hernandez said. The other side of that was not giving up bonus points in the losses. Hernandez pointed to Derek Neises, who nearly got pinned by Hanselmann in the first period. Neises avoided the pin and earned his team’s respect.

8SPORTS SHORTS Cubs’ Castro has $3.6M seized in legal dispute Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro has had $3.6 million frozen in bank accounts in the Dominican Republic pending the outcome of a lawsuit filed in that country by a former youth coach, claiming breach of contract over money promised by Castro’s father, according to published reports in the Dominican. The lawsuit claims Castro failed to comply with an agreement signed by his father when the player was a teen, promising 3 percent of future major-league earnings. Castro’s representatives call the suit baseless and were filing a countersuit this week, a source said, seeking to prove the contract Castro’s father signed was invalid, in part over a father’s lack of authority to sign away a son’s adult earnings. One report said both Castro and his father, Diogenes signed the agreement. Those close to Castro say they expect a ruling in Castro’s favor within a week.

James atop newest list of NBA jersey sales MIAMI – Reigning NBA MVP LeBron James was relaxing with his wife not long ago when he looked around and was stunned to see someone wearing his Miami Heat No. 6 jersey. They were on their honeymoon in Venice. “It’s kind of crazy, honestly,” James said. “There’s a ‘wow’ factor.” James again is on top of the NBA’s list of top-selling jerseys in the newest rankings released Thursday. The rankings are based on overall sales from adidas and NBAStore.com in the fourth quarter of this year. Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers is No. 2 on the list, followed by Derrick Rose of the Bulls, Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder and Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks.

Cahow says politics can’t be avoided in Olympics BOSTON – Brian Boitano decided to keep his sexual orientation private until he was appointed to the delegation that will represent the United States at the Sochi Olympics. Former U.S. hockey player Caitlin Cahow came out last month when she realized she could help athletes who were struggling with their sexual orientation. “I think each individual has a right to define who they are,” Cahow told the The Associated Press on Thursday, a few hours after the figure skating champion acknowledged publicly for the first time that he is gay. “That’s what autonomy is all about.” Cahow and Boitano were chosen by President Barack Obama this week to represent the U.S. at the 2014 Games in Sochi. The decision to include openly gay and lesbian athletes – Billie Jean King also is a member – and exclude high-ranking government officials has been interpreted as response to a new Russian law banning “gay propaganda.”

R.I. governor: Schilling’s video game ‘junk’ CRANSTON, R.I. – The flagship video game that had been under development by Curt Schilling’s company when it went under is now just “a lot of junk,” Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee said Thursday, and he wasn’t surprised that it failed to sell at auction. The former Red Sox pitcher’s company, 38 Studios, was developing the game codenamed “Copernicus” with the help of a $75 million state loan guarantee when it went bankrupt last year, leaving taxpayers on the hook to pay back tens of millions of dollars. – Wire reports

Team that finds answers on ‘D’ will win Bears waiting to see if Briggs can play, he could be the difference Most likely the Bears matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night will come down to this: The Bears have the fifth-best passing game in the NFL and the Eagles’ pass defense is ranked 31st. The Eagles have the NFL’s top running game and the Bears have the NFL’s 32ndranked run defense. The Bears defense is 28th in the NFL in points allowed, the Eagles defense is 17th. The defense that finds the best answers to those mismatches will win the game. On the face of it, the Eagles’ defense is slightly less flawed. But the Bears believe they might have some answers to the problem. Specifically, the return of linebacker Lance Briggs, the improvement of

the defensive line thanks to the play of Jeremiah Ratliff and improvement by the defense overall. As of Thursday, the return of Briggs still was just a hope. Coach Marc Trestman talked about what it would mean to have Briggs back and Briggs talked about the impact he hopes to make, but he had not been cleared medically to play and that decision wouldn’t be made until Friday. “I stand by being optimistic,” Trestman said. “You’ve always got to be cautiously optimistic because you don’t know what the next day is going to bring. But, based on the first two days of practice, we’re really hopeful that he’ll be able to play on Sunday night.”

they were in the gaps they were supposed to be in. But this idea the defense as a whole and the run defense specifically have been better the past few weeks, there I have my doubts. It appeared to me the Dallas Cowboys quit minutes if not seconds after they realized how miserably cold it was in Soldier Field. Cleveland scored 31 points, 24 on offense, and they actually gained eight more yards on the ground than they have averaged for the season. The Bears have an excellent chance to win this game. But it will almost certainly have to be because they put 35 to 45 points on the board. The Bears defense being the difference still looks like an awfully tough putt.

‘Noise’ swirling all around Success BEARS NOTES

This is a huge game for the Bears. Or is it? “We’re 8-6, and we need to progress and win,” said Marc Trestman of the night game against the Eagles this Sunday in Philadelphia. “That’s No. 1.” And No. 2? “No. 2 is winning takes us to a different place in terms of potential seed (in the playoffs), which is critically important. So just leaving it at that is enough to reason how we’d want to play the game. Now, could that change? Certainly.” Aha. Noise. That’s Trestman’s word for the distractions and nongame controversies and ambiguities that swirl around the Bears, and every NFL team, from one game to the next. Noise might have little to do with X’s and O’s, but it has everything to do with psychology and comfort and must be managed with as much care as play-calling. The unsettling part about this matchup with the Eagles is that there are scenarios in which winning or losing could be – for either team – if not irrelevant, then not very important. Not compared to what the finale Dec. 29 would mean. That is, if the Cowboys beat the Redskins, and the Packers beat the Steelers on Sunday, both the Bears and Eagles will have their division title hopes come down to playing those two teams in the last regulation game. And whoever wins this Bears-Eagles contest is meaningless. Well, not exactly meaningless. But close. The seeding farther along in the playoffs would be at stake. That’s notable, because among other things, nobody wants to play on the road. And nobody wants to play at Seattle, in the Seahawks’ “House of Deafness.” Which are possibilities with a loss. That’s what Trestman meant when he said winning would take the Bears to “another place.” It’s all odd. You would expect this to be a monster game. That’s why it was moved from noon to 7:30 p.m., for the higher ratings. And because it got moved, the Bears get to watch TV on Sunday afternoon and see if the NFC North 7-7 Lions and 7-6-1 Packers partially decide their own fate. Sure, you could say, as Bears tight end Martellus Bennett did, that you just win ’em all and the heck with the rest.

VIEWS Rick Telander But would anyone want to see a star Bears player go down with a year-ending injury in a game that does not contribute to making the postseason? Weird. “Yeah, it is,” said quarterback Jay Cutler, who had more noise flying around him last week than an industrial-strength leafblower. “But however it turns out, I think you want to get on a run going into the playoffs. You want to be on a winning streak and roll from there. That’s our mindset. We’re going to play the Eagles as hard as we can.” It never should come down to strategic tanking in competitive sport, but sometimes – if you look at the big picture – it almost has to. You might say, Just kick butt! I agree. That sounds good. Sounds right. But if the Packers win Sunday, and the Bears, knowing this, lose, say, Brandon Marshall or Matt Forte or Alshon Jefferey in the process of beating the Eagles – and still have to beat the Packers a week later, how do you feel then? Noise. It’s all around. And Trestman has done a great job this season of manag-

ing it. Don’t get too high. Don’t get too low. You listen to him speak, and the cadence itself is calming. Yes, there is a thin line between calming and embalming, but Trestman rightfully has been labeled the “Quarterback Whisperer.” You keep the most important position on your team focused and upbeat, and you have done a special job. The noise, Trestman said, never goes away. It was there at the beginning, it’ll be there at the end. It is, he said, with amazing astuteness, “the fun of it,” because “everybody wants to be a decision-maker.” Of course, we all do. But without the ramifications or accountability. Oops, were we wrong last week when we said Josh McCown should continue on as starting QB? Yup. But our jobs didn’t depend on it. Cutler gave kudos to Trestman and the organization for the communication that has quieted the noise. “A real even-keeled locker room, real even-keeled coaches,” he said. “Nothing else to discuss at this time,” said Trestman of the shouldwe-rest-some-starters? noise. “At 7 o’clock Eastern Time, if the situation needs to be reevaluated again, it’s open for discussion.” All quiet on the NFC front.

Cutler: You want to be winning heading into playoffs • MUSICK Continued from page C1 eliminated from playoff contention based on Sunday’s games. Clear as mud? Amid so much uncertainty, Trestman would have been best served to offer clarity. Instead, he opened the door to speculation. “It’s not a hypothetical to answer that we’re 8-6 and we need to continue to progress and win,” Trestman said. “That’s No. 1. No. 2 is winning does take us to a different place in terms of potential seed, which is critically important. So just leaving at that is enough to reason out how we would want to play the game. “Now, could that change? Certainly.

“But right now, we’re focused on winning a game. And I don’t think there’s really anything else to discuss at this time. And at 7 o’clock eastern time Sunday night, if the situation needs to be reevaluated again, it’s open for discussion.” No discussion. Play your starters. Beat the Eagles. Period. Trestman’s intentions are good, and by no means was he carelessly looking forward or disrespecting the Eagles. He was offering an honest answer to a timely question, one that may or may not prove to be prophetic as darkness falls Sunday. Intelligence is a gift, but it also can be a curse. Because smart people can overthink certain situations. They can be too geeky for their own good.

At times, Trestman has fit this profile. See: field goal attempt on second down. If recent NFL history has shown anything, it’s that teams do not help themselves by playing it safe late in the season. Remember the 2009 Indianapolis Colts? They won their first 14 games and decided to take their foot off of the gas to stay healthy for the playoffs. Remember that season? The champion New Orleans Saints sure do. It’s a high-profile example, but not the only one. As Trestman said, the Bears’ potential playoff seeding could be at stake Sunday. A win could clear the path to a No. 3 playoff seed, which as of now would mean a home game against the San Francisco 49ers. A loss could push the Bears toward a No. 4 seed, which as of now would

mean a home game against the Carolina Panthers. Will those scenarios change? Probably. That’s what makes the NFL great. So forget the math, coach. Listen to your quarterback. “However it turns out, I think you want to get on a run going into the playoffs,” Jay Cutler said. “You want to be playing your best football. “You don’t want to lose, lose, get in the playoffs. You want to be on a winning streak when you get into the playoffs and kind of roll from there.” Preach on.

LAKE FOREST – Part of the seamless transition from Josh McCown to Jay Cutler was seen in the Bears’ rate on third down. They are 17 for 25 in the past two games, a rate of 68 percent, which is 8.7 better than the next-best in the league in those two weeks. To keep up with the Eagles in a shootout, the Bears will need to maintain that kind of success, not only to score points but also to keep LeSean McCoy and Nick Foles on the sideline. “We focused hard on third down today. We have to be great on third down. We continued to get better the last two weeks,” coach Marc Trestman said after Thursday’s practice. “It’s no guarantee we will on Sunday night, but we’re working hard at it to continue to ascend on both sides of the ball, get off the field defensively and stay on the field as long as we can on the offensive side of the ball.” The Eagles hardly are world-beaters on third down. They are 26th in the league, allowing third downs to be converted 41 percent of the time, but Trestman said they are very disruptive and “unconventional” on third down, which can cause turnovers. “They’ve got a system that enables them to move people around,” he said. “We’ve got to do everything we can to basically unlock their blitzes and try to get comfortable with the protections because they look different on almost every thirddown situation.” The Bears are seventh in the league on third down and have allowed only six sacks, tied for the second-fewest in the league. Cutler had a perfect 158.3 passer rating on third down Sunday, completing 11 of 12 passes for 151 yards and two touchdowns. On the season, Cutler and McCown combine to have a 107.6 rating on third down, and Cutler needs to keep that up against a Philly team that gets its hands on the football. The Eagles have 30 passes defensed on third down this season, which is third in the NFL. They are tied for second in the league with seven interceptions on third down. “The whole defense is difficult to get a grasp on. It takes some time to really get a feeling for what they’re doing and you still don’t really know exactly what they’re doing,” Cutler said. “They’re moving around a lot, lot of different front structures, lot of different coverages, a lot of blitzes coming from different places so it’s challenging for us so far.” Injury updates: Lance Briggs was a limited participant in practice again Thursday. Trestman remains optimistic he’ll be cleared Friday. … Brandon Marshall (hamstring) was limited to keep his legs rested for Sunday. … Eagles cornerback Brandon Boykin, who has four picks this season, returned to practice Thursday after clearing the NFL’s concussion protocol.

MIXED MARTIAL ARTS

Curran ends retirement, will fight again Veteran fighter could return to cage in March By JEFF ARNOLD jarnold@shawmedia.com Jeff Curran didn’t want to live with a lingering sense of what if. At 36, the 16-year mixed martial arts fighting veteran feels like he still is championship material. After 52 professional fights, Curran said he believes he still could be attractive to his sport’s biggest promotion, Ultimate Fighting Championship. But more than anything, Curran knew he couldn’t stay out of the cage. Curran announced Thurs-

day that he was ending his fourmonth retirement and plans to return to the cage as early as March. He made the announcement on the Team Curran website in a 575-word comeback announcement that started, “To everyone who cares.” When and where he will fight next still has yet to be determined. But after announcing he was ending his fighting career after a split-decision loss at RFA 9 to Pedro Munhoz in August, Curran knows he still wants to fight. “The reality set in that if I stretched this retirement out past a certain point, there’s no going back,” Curran said in a phone interview Thursday afternoon. “I guess I felt like the longer I wait, the more unrealistic it becomes for me to come back.” Curran’s management

group, SuckerPunch Entertainment, is in discussions with two promotions, including Resurrection Fighting Alliance, as to when Curran will make his return to the ring. Curran said Thursday he “jumped the gun” in retiring after his loss to Munhoz. C u r r a n said he is at a point in his life where he Jeff Curran believes he can focus primarily on training after a year in which his Crystal Lake MMA gym moved into a new space, he was forced to back out of a fight after his dog was hit by a car and in which he struggled to cut weight to fight at 125 pounds. But Curran said he is ready to dedicate himself to fighting

again, proving he still can be a contender in a sport he has dedicated almost the past two decades of his life to. Curran said he initially was at peace with his decision to retire, but after watching footage of the Munhoz fight when he struggled to stay on his feet on a slippery cage floor, he started feeling like he wasn’t done. Curran discussed a possible comeback with his training partners, management group and his wife, Sarah, who believed Curran made the right decision in retiring with a record of 36-15-1. Curran, who continues to train several fighters, including former Bellator world champion Pat Curran and No. 5-ranked straw weight Felice Herrig, quickly decided he would continue with his career. Curran’s biggest health concern remained his hands, which

had taken a beating during his 52-fight career. But as he saw his hands start to heal and some of the life issues he had dealt with over the past year settle down, Curran knew he coudn’t quit. “I said, ‘Screw it, I’m going to follow my dream,’ ” Curran said. Curran won’t put a limit on how long – or short – his fighting career could last. He said he will re-evaluate things after his next fight and determine if he wants to keep going. He said he won’t just “fight to fight” and that he’s not willing to go up against “some nobody that’s trying to make a name off of me,” but will focus on high-caliber competition. Curran, who has fought for every major promotion in the sport, including UFC, has his sights set on reaching the top once again. Curran last fought

in UFC in 2012 and has lost all three of his UFC bouts by unanimous decision. If UFC brought Curran back at 125 pounds, it would be the fourth weight class Curran has competed in for the promotion. “I’m going to put what I’ve done on the line against people that deserve the opportunity and that will help my status should I win,” he said. “I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t think I couldn’t be successful again. “Whether it’s one more fight and I have to call it quits because of my hands. Maybe it’s five fights or five years. I don’t know what it might be, but I won’t announce a retirement in the cage when I’m emotional. I’m going to sit back and live my life post-fight a little while and go through my normal channel of re-setting my mind a little bit.”

PREP ROUNDUP

8INSIDE BOYS SWIMMING Athlete of the Week ALEX REINBRECHT Jacobs co-op, sr. The senior distance swimmer is off to a strong start. He has won each 500-yard freestyle so far and even won the 50 freestyle during Saturday’s relay invitational at Rolling Meadows.

Noteworthy Pool time: First-year Huntley boys swimming coach George Keenan didn’t have many expectations coming into the season. He wanted to wait until he got to know his team to see what he had. One thing he was sure about, however, was the amount of work the team would put in, especially during the breaks. Last season the Red Raiders lacked significant pool time and took weeks off during winter break and Thanksgiving. This season, Huntley has been practicing at Centegra and has been allotted more pool time, and Keenan will plan to take advantage. “We won’t be taking that time off this year,” Keenan said. “We’ll be swimming this year and hopefully it will pan out in the long run. They’re encouraged in what we’re doing so far.” Record time: McHenry coach Craig Fowles is excited about his team and thinks it is the best squad he has coached in his career. The Warriors have a slew of sophomore swimmers who are close to the state qualifying times and have nice depth in off-stroke events. McHenry hopes to send several swimmers to this season’s state meet. “Kevin Braun is a fantastic backstroker,” Fowles said. “Trey Schopen has a fantastic butterfly and is really quick in the 500 freestyle.” The two set three fresh/soph records and are close to owning the varsity records, as well. Health concerns: Winter break is a crucial training time for teams because it allows swimmers to up yardage in practice. Jacobs co-op coach Rick Andresen is hoping for a good few weeks of practice coming up but needs to have a healthy team to do so. “We have had some sickness and I’m not sure how we’re going to get healthy,” Andresen said. “We’ve had a couple guys with a flu or a virus and I would just like to see them be healthy for Christmas break so we can really train the way we need to during those two weeks.”

This week’s can’t-miss meet Huntley at Cary-Grove co-op, 4:30 p.m. Friday at Crystal Lake YMCA Huntley has nice depth while the Trojans have yet another solid team. This will be a nice test for both teams to gauge where they are endurance-wise before winter practices. – Patrick Mason

Despite the close loss, C-G coach Ryan Ludwig said there were a lot of positives. The biggest was wrestling against tough competition where every match and points within a match are critical. “That’s how duals are supposed to be,” Ludwig said. “You want to go into duals that are high competitive.”

SALEM, Va. – It will be familiar opponents when Mount Union and Wisconsin-Whitewater meet in the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl for the Division III national championship Friday night at Salem Stadium. The Whitewater roster includes Richmond-Burton grads Kyle Wismer and John Flood, along with Jacobs grad Tim Regan and Harvard’s Collin Nolen. The teams have been the last two standing in Division III in eight of the past nine seasons, but the Purple Raiders of Mount Union (140) got there this year with a new coach, 37-year-old Vince Kehres. Kehres is the son and former defensive coordinator under his father, Larry Kehres, who guided the Purple Raiders to 21 unbeaten regular seasons and 11 national championships in 27 years as coach. “You can see that they haven’t really skipped a beat with Vince taking over for his father,” Warhawks coach Lance Leipold said this week. The older Kehres retired after last season, when he won his 11th national championship, with a career record of 332-24-3, and Leipold dealt him four of those losses. The Warhawks had won three in a row before last season, when they missed the playoffs entirely while Mount Union gave Larry Kehres a retirement gift with a 28-10 victory against St. Thomas (Minn.). When Kehres retired in May, but remained as athletic director, his son took over. Vince Kehres played for the

Purple Raiders and was connected in some way to 10 of the 11 national championship winners. “I feel like I got handed the keys to a Cadillac, and I put a coat of wax on it and I gassed it up,” Vince Kehres said. “The football program at Mount Union didn’t need a lot of touching up.” Especially not with Kevin Burke, last year’s Stagg Bowl MVP and this year’s Gagliardi winner as the top player in Division III returning. Burke has thrown for 3,514 yards and 44 touchdowns with only seven interceptions, and he has run for another 1,035 yards and 13 touchdowns, often on play-saving scrambles. In the past two weeks, Burke has guided the Purple Raiders to a 62-59 victory against Wesley, and last week’s 41-40 victory against North Central. It has been “a wild ride,” Kehres said. The Warhawks, by contrast, advanced by beating Linfield, 28-17, in the quarterfinals, then edged Mary Hardin-Baylor, 16-15, last weekend. Leipold, though, said none of that will matter come Friday night, and with his 100-man roster including 47 freshmen, he hopes the Warhawks’ history will help fill in some gaps. “Hopefully, we can take in the confidence that we’ve had some success in past years,” he said. The also have had success this season, especially their quarterback. Matt Behrendt has thrown for 3,041 yards with 36 TDs and one interception. It should all make for another competitive showdown between the teams.

Hughes will be honored in February at Halas Hall in Lake Forest • HUGHES Continued from page C1 “We don’t do a lot of functional volunteer or charity work [as a team],” Seaburg said. “We’re not opposed to it, it’s just that we demand so much and require so many things. Individually, if they

choose to do it, it’s great. What set Matt apart was doing so much on his own.” Hughes is president of National Honor Society, a member of the student council and vice president of Interact, a group that performs various fundraising activities to help people. “Some kids do things because it looks good for their

college applications, but with Matt, all that [volunteering] comes pretty natural,” Seaburg said. “He’s doing it because he’s such a kind, caring person. I felt like he really deserved my nomination because he did all the hard work.” Hughes didn’t know what the Community Champion award was, but his interest

was piqued when Seaburg mentioned the scholarship involved with it. Hughes received the call last week. “I listened to the voicemail and I was pretty happy at that point,” Hughes said. “At first I didn’t know I had to give a speech, but I’m not really nervous.” Hughes still is consider-

ing his college options, some schools at which he would play football, some he would not. In February, he will embrace a unique opportunity as part of a celebration of football that will include several former Bears and current college coaches. “I’ve never been to Halas Hall,” he said.

Last season, the Hawks were cute with the puck, trying to use their cast of all-stars to make the perfect play. It usually ended with too much passing and not enough shooting – if they even managed a successful breakout and entry in the first place. This year, the Hawks are firing away, and with point men such as Keith, Sharp, Hossa and Seabrook constantly moving their feet to create shooting lanes, those pucks are getting through. The Hawks averaged only 1.26 shots on goal per power play last season, and a mere 1.14 in the playoffs. This season, they’re averaging 1.51 – behind only league-leading Pittsburgh’s 1.64. It might not sound like much, but it makes a big difference on the scoresheet. The Hawks still are getting the highlight-reel goals – witness Kane’s off-the-rush backhander Tuesday in Nashville – but they also are getting the simple ones on

tips and through screens and off rebounds. “The patience level and play recognition from the guys is high end,” Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said. “But it’s all because we’re shooting the puck, and things happen.” Sharp, of course, is right about special teams being streaky – the Hawks can only hope the PK turns around eventually. But the Hawks’ power play has been quite consistent this year, and almost identical at home (24.3 percent) and on the road (25.0 percent). Keith said that has as much to do with the personnel on the two units staying the same, allowing chemistry and confidence to keep building. “We have two really good units, and if one unit doesn’t score, it seems like the other one is able to get a goal,” Keith said. “We’ve had the same units all season, so we have that chemistry with one another out there, with a lot of skill. It’s moving the puck around and just getting shots. And we’ve been able to score some timely goals.”

At the right point stood Duncan Keith, clutching his 7-monthold son, Colton, and chatting up Brandon Saad, who was wearing a sweater and collared shirt. At the other point stood a front office staffer’s 15-month-old son, haphazardly kicking around a puck with his dress shoes. Marian Hossa lingered on the bench, weighing whether it was worth it to take his slightly spooked 2-year-old, Mia, on to the ice and risk a standard 2-year-old meltdown (he decided it wasn’t). And Brent Seabrook skated around holding his 4-month-old boy, Carter Seven, who wasn’t even wearing shoes. The way things are going, though, had you put four opponents out there during the Blackhawks’ family holiday skate at the United Center on Thursday, they might have scored anyway. The Hawks’ power play – which went from bad in the regular season to worse in the playoffs last spring – suddenly is borderline unstoppable. They’re scoring at a 24.6 percent clip, third-best in the league, and have scored at least one power-play goal in 10 straight games, their best run in 22 years. And they have 10 goals on 26 opportunities over their past six games. Last season, the frustrated Hawks almost expected not to score on the power play, scoring only 16.6 percent of the time in the regular season and a dreadful 11.4 percent in the playoffs. Now? It’s fair to wonder if they almost assume they’re going to score every time an opponent takes a penalty. “No, never,” Patrick Sharp said. “You guys know that special teams – power play, penalty kill – they run hot and cold. Right now, we seem to move it around pretty good, both units, and the pucks are going in. It’s been a key to our success the last little while, but we want to

WHITE SOX

Sox add Downs to bullpen By DARYL VAN SCHOUWEN dvanschouwen@suntimes.com The White Sox have created something of a buzz in December by ramping up a youth movement that would seem to bode well for 2015 and beyond. On Thursday, they plugged in a needed piece for the bullpen in 2014 by agreeing to a contract with veteran left-handed reliever Scott Downs. Downs, who will turn 38 in March, agreed to a one-year contract in the $4 million range that is believed to include a vesting option for a second year. The deal is pending a physical for Downs, who posted a 2.49 ERA over 68 games between the Angels and Braves in 2013. A sinkerball pitcher, Downs owns a career ERA of 3.48 spanning 14 seasons be-

tween the Cubs, Expos, Blue Jays, Angels and Braves. He led the American League with 81 appearances in 2007, with an ERA of 2.17 that season. The Sox also have lefty Donnie Veal in the bullpen, along with right-handers Nate Jones, Matt Lindstrom and Ronald Belisario, whose $3 million, one- Scott Downs year contract was made official Thursday. Right-handers Daniel Webb, Jake Petricka and Andre Rienzo also figure in the Sox’s plans after breaking in as rookies in 2013. The trade for Avisail Garcia in July, signing of freeagent Jose Abreu in November and trades for Adam Eaton

and Matt Davidson this month were made to sustain longterm success, general manager Rick Hahn said. Although the Sox won’t be viewed by most as a contender in 2014, Hahn isn’t writing that off, as evidenced by the Downs pickup. The 6-foot-3, 240-pound Belisario, 30, a veteran who has pitched in 14 postseason games, will be under team control well past next season. He will be arbitration eligible after the next two seasons and won’t be a free agent until after the 2016 season. Belisario went 5-7 with a 3.97 ERA, one save, 49 strikeouts and 21 holds in 77 games (second in the National League) with the Dodgers last season and ranked fourth in ground-ball percentage (77.9) among relievers. “Belisario provides us with a veteran reliever who

owns a proven record of recording key outs at big moments of games,” Hahn said. “He is a power arm with plus stuff who profiles well for our ballpark. He has experience pitching in hold and save situations, and we see him as yet another very strong option for (manager) Robin Ventura in the back end of our bullpen.” Addison Reed was traded Monday for Davidson, opening a job for a closer. Jones, Lindstrom, Belisario and perhaps Webb all are possibilities. A native of Maracay, Venezuela, Belisario did not pitch in 2011 after encountering visa problems connected to a positive test for cocaine. In 2012, he finished third in The Sporting News Comeback Player of the Year voting after going 8-1 with a 2.54 ERA in 68 games for the Dodgers.

O-line exceeding Bryant Battered Bulls fall again all expectations likely to miss 6 weeks LAKERS

THUNDER 107, BULLS 95

By GREG BEACHAM The Associated Press LOS ANGELES – Kobe Bryant is expected to miss about six weeks with an injured left knee, dealing the second major injury setback of the year to the Los Angeles Lakers’ superstar guard. An MRI exam Thursday revealed Bryant has a fracture in his lateral tibial plateau – the top of his shinbone near his knee. Bryant made his season debut with the Lakers on Dec. 8 after nearly eight months away while recovering from a torn Achilles tendon. He apKobe Bryant parently was hurt again Tuesday night in Memphis while playing his fourth game in five nights. After playing six games in 10 days, the fourth-leading scorer in NBA history is out again until February or longer – and the Lakers’ already miserable run of injuries got even uglier. “You hate it for Kobe,” Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni said after practice Thursday. “He’s worked so hard to get back, but he’ll be back. He’ll be back in six weeks. We’ve just got to weather the storm until he gets back.” The Lakers also announced Steve Nash will be out for at least four more weeks with nerve root irritation, leaving injury-riddled Los Angeles without its top three point guards and Bryant – who filled in at the point in recent games – for at least another week. On Thursday afternoon, a tweet was posted on Bryant’s official Twitter account that consisted solely of the hashtag: BrokenNotBeaten.

OKLAHOMA CITY – There still is fight. It no longer is punches, however. It’s a slap here, an annoying flick there. It’s what undermanned, less talented teams have no choice but doing. Poke at the knees and hope the giant trips. So although the Bulls were competitive in their 107-95 loss to Oklahoma City on Thursday night at the Next Chesapeake Energy Arena, vs. Cleveland, the standings 7 p.m. Satnever lie. Anurday, WGN, other loss for AM-1000 a 9-16 team. Their fourth straight and their 13th in their past 16 games. And while the losses mount, the body count grows. Earlier in the day, Kirk Hinrich was ruled out of his fourth-straight game with a back strain that won’t improve. If anything, it sounded like he took a step back. Then just before game-time, the same left Achilles injury that cost Luol Deng four games two weeks ago, tightened up enough that he was ruled out. “He just needs a little rest, I guess,” coach Tom Thibodeau said of Deng. “He just has some tightness. We’ll see, I don’t know.” There were no plans for an MRI when the team returned Friday morning to Chicago, but because it’s the same injury acting up again, there was obvious concern. And just in case the Bulls weren’t depleted enough, in the second quarter, Jimmy Butler was trapped near the sideline, stepped on the foot of Nick Collison and had to come out of the game. The Bulls are calling it a right ankle injury, and Butler did not return. So basically, they were going with Joakim Noah, Carlos Boozer, Mike Dunleavy, rookie Tony Snell and D.J.

DeKALB – Get a running back to rush for more than 1,000 yards for the first time since 2010. Check. Allow less than one sack a game. Check. Those were two goals Northern Illinois’ offensive line had at the beginning of the season. Tailback Cameron Stingily is the first NIU running back since Chad Spann in 2010 to pass the 1,000-yard mark. He’s at 1,081 heading into the Thursday’s Poinsettia Bowl against Utah State in San Diego. Although Stingily was the first running back since Spann to rush for the milestone, the Huskies have boasted a 1,000yard rusher – quarterbacks Chandler Harnish and Jordan Lynch hit the 1,000-yard plateau from 2011 to 2013 – every year since 1999 except for 2008. The Huskies have allowed only nine sacks on the season, a total tied for fourth in the country. “At this point in time, [the offensive line has] exceeded our expectations. If you would have told me at the beginning of the season we were going to average 300 yards rushing a game, I’d have told you you’re crazy,” NIU offensive coordinator Bob Cole said. “So they’ve done an outstanding job of opening the holes for these guys. That includes the running backs, that includes the tight ends and fullbacks. All of them collectively have done a great job.” The Huskies average 312.5 rushing yards a game, which ranks fourth in the country behind Auburn (335.7 ypg), triple-option Navy (322) and Ohio State (317.5). “Being able to run the ball, that’s something the offensive line really wants to do,” senior guard Jared Volk said. “Because that’s what NIU does is run the ball, so we wanted to be the best at that as we could and also communicate the best that we’ve ever been. So that’s something we’ve also done really good this year.” The group was dealt a big

Thibodeau might be a top-tier NBA coach, but he’s not a miracle worker. “I think that’s the challenge for everybody,” Thibodeau said of continuing to play short-handed. “When you have injuries, how quickly you can adapt to change? Now, the thing that makes it a little different is D.J. having to come in from the outside, having to learn a new offense, a new defense, learn his teammates. That’s a bit of an adjustment, but the fact that he’s been around, has done it before, that’s a big plus.” It was for about a half, as the Bulls outscored Oklahoma City (21-4) 28-20 in that second quarter to go into the locker room trailing by only three, 55-52. But the Thunder have Kevin Durant. The Bulls?

They have problems. Durant put on a show in a three-minute span during the third quarter, making it his own personal pick-up game. The Bulls didn’t have next. By the time the third ended, the Thunder lead was back up to 84-72, and it didn’t feel like it should have even been that close. Durant finished with 32 points, while the Bulls were led by 23 points and 12 rebounds from Noah. Next up for the Bulls is a Saturday game with Cleveland at the United Center. The hope is things can only get better. “Just keep grinding,” Thibodeau said. “You’ve got to be the same every day, keep working. You look at one or two plays here and there, improve a little bit more in this area. The difference between winning and losing is very small.”

No. 23 NIU vs. Utah St., 8:30 p.m. Thursday, in San Diego, ESPN

blow when starting tackle Tyler Loos, who suffered a broken leg and dislocated ankle against UMass on Nov. 2, was lost for the season. Loos still was named a first-team All-Mid-American Conference selection, and the offensive line has continued to play well in his absence. Loos, Ryan Brown and Matt Krempel had been rotating at the tackle spots, with Brown now at left tackle with Krempel stationed on the right side. NIU also has been able to get redshirt freshmen tackles Josh Ruka and Levon Myers some action, as well as junior guard Tyler Pitt. “Getting that depth,” Brown said. “Getting those young guys in, that’s the biggest thing is getting guys experience in games, that helps us for retooling the line next year.” Last season, the group was sort of an unknown. It was replacing a line of Trevor Olson, Keith Otis, Scott Wedige and Joe Pawlak. The Huskies then all of the sudden had to replace five starters when guard Logan Pegram suffered a broken leg during 2012 fall camp. NIU didn’t miss a beat. Next season, Volk and Krempel will be gone, but the road already is being paved for the next group of offensive linemen, a unit that seems to be consistently strong at NIU. “I’d say that’s one thing that the older guys do every year. Like through those guys, Wedige and Keith and Joe Pawlak, those guys really take the young guys under their wing and teach the little things that they know and [the young players] can learn those things earlier so they can progress to get better and better every year,” Volk said. “So that’s something that the old guys tend to do that we’re trying to do with the young guys.”

REVIEWS & LOCAL SHOWTIMES OF NEW MOVIES ON SCREEN NOW STARRING: Christian Bale, Bradley

Washington Post

“Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” STARRING: Will Ferrell, Christina Applegate, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell. PLOT: With the ’70s behind him, San Diego’s top rated newsman, Ron Burgundy, returns to take New York’s first 24-hour news channel by storm. RATED: PG-13 for crude and sexual content, drug use, language and comic violence. TIME: 1 hour, 59 minutes VERDICT: Can there be too much of a good thing? Where did that expression come from, anyway? If it’s good, isn’t more always better? Discuss. Or, actually, don’t discuss. Because, in the case of “Anchorman 2” anyway, the question is sort of pointless, isn’t it? Everything about both the original 2004 film, a cult classic of the Will Ferrell oeuvre, and its lead character, Ron Burgundy, was puffed up and absurd and ridiculous. And so, why wouldn’t the sequel be even more puffed up, more absurd and more

The Associated Press

“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 getgo. Instead of a drawn-out intro, we get right to the action, which is of course the quest of Bilbo (Martin Freeman, himself livelier and funnier) and the band of dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (a suitably noble Richard Armitage) to reclaim the kingdom of Erebor, under the Lonely Mountain, from the frightening dragon Smaug. As always, trouble takes many forms: not only the menacing Orcs, but giant spiders with sticky webs, too. Then there are the elves, who come to the rescue at an opportune time but then imprison Bilbo and his mates. (Gandalf – the always grand Ian McKellen – has other business, and leaves for long stretches.) 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. Further entertainment comes in Lake-town, led by a greedy Master (the engaging Fry) and his underling Alfrid (Ryan Gage, also fun). It should be noted Jackson has again shot his film at 48-frames-per-second, double the standard speed, to make things look sharper. But this time, the fanfare is gone; critics were not even shown the film at the faster speed. Jackson clearly doesn’t want the technique to dominate the discussion. In any case, it all comes down to the climactic confrontation with the dragon. Unfortunately, the film sags somewhat here. It’s fun to hear Benedict Cumberbatch, as Smaug, hurl seething epithets at Bilbo, and Freeman is at his most pluckily adorable. Still, they really could have shortened this confrontation by a good 20 minutes. But what’s 20 minutes when you’re taking nine hours to tell a story? Onward to the third installment. Jackson is back on track. –

The Associated Press

“Saving Mr. Banks” STARRING: Emma Thompson, Tom Hanks, Colin Farrell, Paul Giamatti

PLOT: Author P. L. Travers reflects on her difficult childhood while meeting with filmmaker Walt Disney during production for the adaptation of her novel, Mary Poppins. RATED: PG-13 for thematic elements including some unsettling images. TIME: 2 hours, 6 minutes VERDICT: For most scribes who have toiled in the movie industry, portraying Hollywood as a healing paradise is roughly equivalent to regaling a lobster of the soothing properties of a boiling pot of water. Hollywood has always, and probably will always, chew up authors. From “Sunset Boulevard” to “In a Lonely Place” to “Barton Fink,” we’ve often had the writer’s perspective on the painful life of movie scripting. Now, in Disney’s “Saving Mr. Banks,” we have the studio’s. No one, needless to say, winds up face down in a swimming pool in the Disney version. “Saving Mr. Banks,” directed by John Lee Hancock (a sure studio hand of inspirational tales like “The Blind Side” and “The Rookie”), is based on the true story of the tug of wills between “Mary Poppins” author P.L. Travers (Emma Thompson) and Walt Disney (Tom Hanks). Finally drawn by Disney’s money and years of entreaties to adapt her books, the extremely particular British writer arrives in mythic 1961 Los Angeles like a dark cloud indignant of sunshine. She peers warily at “Los Ang-uh-lees,” as she calls it, from the back window of the limo that’s been sent to pick her up. Her chipper driver (Paul Giamatti) is infuriatingly American. She flinches when he calls her home “Inger-land” and, worse, says “no problemo.” It’s just the start of the unpleasantness for Travers, who recoils at the thought of handing over her very precious characters – “my family,” she says – to Disney. When she arrives in a hotel room strewn with baskets and stuffed animals, she faces a giant Mickey doll in the corner, telling him he can stay there “until you learn the art of subtlety.” She doesn’t treat Disney much better, nor her would-be collaborators: writer Don DaGradi (Bradley Whitford) and the songwriting Sherman brothers, Robert (B.J. Novak) and Richard (Jason Schwartzman). She is resolute in keeping sentimentality, trite showmanship or dancing penguins from her tale. The Disney team are puppy dogs, obedient but pleading with big eyes to be let off the leash. As the mustached Disney, Hanks (well-suited for the part, belying only the slightest hint of Disney’s strong-arm side) absorbs her contempt for his “silly cartoon” with a quick wince. But he’s equally dauntless in the certainty of his mission, a zealot for the fantasy of storytelling. They’re all flummoxed by her demands, like not having red in the film: “I’ve simply gone off the color,” says Travers. As these lines, from the script by Kelly Marcel and Sue Smith, suggest, it’s extremely pleasurable watching Thompson in the role. With pursed lips and folded arms, she’s a force of condescension. But she’s also a haunted woman. In a flashback that runs intermittently throughout the film, “Saving Mr. Banks” explores the roots of Travers’ fiction in the reality of her upbringing. Her childhood in rural Australia at the start of the 20th century was poor and tragic because of her sick and alcoholic father (Colin Farrell), the Mr. Banks in need of saving. The background

Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Amy Adams PLOT: A con man, Irving Rosenfeld, along with his seductive British partner, Sydney Prosser, is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso. DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia. RATED: R for pervasive language including some sexual content and brief violence TIME: 2 hours, 17 minutes VERDICT: Underscoring deeply conflicted characters, who are on a mission to reconceive their unsatisfying circumstances, has become director David O. Russell’s sweet spot. From his raw 1996 film, “Flirting with Disaster,” to last year’s acclaimed “Silver Linings Playbook,” he effectively unravels the disarray. In the 1970s-set con artist tale “American Hustle,” Russell’s ability to depict an audacious take on a bedlam breakdown peaks, making this his most entertaining jaunt yet. Loosely chronicling the FBI investigation designed to implicate government officials by way of bribery known as the Abscam scandal, Russell inserts this disclaimer at the start: “Some of this actually happened.” The note sets the facetious tone for the corruption smear – six congressmen and a senator really went down – that riddled New York in the late ’70s and early 1980s. Russell, who co-wrote the script with Eric Singer (“The International”), could have devised an austere new-age noir. But he avoided the melodrama, instead heightening the ludicrous true-crime thread to an outrageously savage, comical and rapid degree. The result is a sleek revival of the ’70s, complete with oversized glasses, plaid suit jackets, plunging come-hither necklines and a rapturous soundtrack. Just about all of his characters are painstakingly obsessed with getting ahead. As a result, they cast morality and logic to the side at the expense of love, stability and a clean criminal record. Some of the names from the real operation have been changed here, as Irving Rosenfeld, played by Christian Bale, is based on actual con artist Mel Weinberg, who was forced to conspire with the FBI to evade doing time. The constantly effective Bale, as the bearded Irving, is a clever swindler who owns a slew of dry cleaners, sells both poached and fake art and hooks people into pseudo loan deals. But he’s not exclusively heartless. His conscience ensures he ideally wants a person to feel satisfied, which makes him quite lovable. Sacrificing his usual sex appeal, Bale committed to packing on an extra 40 pounds and hiding a fake balding head with a hairpiece and a comb-over for this role. Still, his Irving is able to charm the smart and sassy former stripper Sydney Prosser (a memorably bold and genius Amy Adams) at a winter indoor-pool party by identifying their mutual love for Duke Ellington. Sydney, who is tired of slumming, pitches in on Irving’s crooking and assumes the perfect British blue blood persona for luring clientele into the loan scam. Before long, the two, who take turns narrating the story, fall madly in love. But we soon find out Irving is married and stashes his lady Roselyn and her son on Long Island. His sultry and blunt companion, fiercely pronounced by Jennifer Lawrence, ensures she’s far from forgotten as she threatens to unmask Irving’s scheming if he utters the word divorce. As Irving and Sydney’s plotting gains steam, they attract the interest of FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper), who is thirsty for recognition and threatens a bust unless the couple goes in on a plan to nail politicians. But Richie, who lives with his mother and packs his head with rollers for that sexy curly look, falls victim to Sydney’s deceitful advances, as he certainly isn’t as clever as he thinks he is. However, with themes of duality and skepticism running throughout, Sydney’s attraction toward Richie (who Cooper cleverly punches up in each scene), inevitably becomes real. The film may lack grit, but the stellar cast adds to its allure, helping to round out this dynamic account where reinvention offers the means to endure. – The

ridiculous? As long as Ferrell’s back (he is), and reunited with his wacky partners (he is) to form a veritable dream team of inappropriateness (they do), then what could be wrong? Not that “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” again directed with total self-assurance by Adam McKay, is a work of fine art. It’s a broad, low-brow comedy, which one imagines was concocted somewhat like a huge abstract painting: You throw gobs (or jokes) onto a big canvas, some spills over the edges, and it’s messy and lumpy, but hey, it’s all good, and anyway, the next gob is coming. For those who may have missed the original, it brought us Burgundy, a TV anchor defined by his goofiness, self-importance, good-natured chauvinism, and polyester. Set in the ’70s, the theme was gender equality; Burgundy’s foil was Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), who sought her own anchor chair. In the sequel, the issue isn’t gender but the very purpose of TV news: To inform, or entertain? We’re in 1980, and Burgundy and Corningstone, now married, host a morning show together. Then she – alone – is offered an evening anchor slot. Burgundy? He’s fired (the boss is a gruffly funny Harrison Ford, sounding quite Brokaw-esque.) Ron tells Veronica she can’t take the job without him. She accuses him of acting like Julius Caesar. “Who the hell is Julius Caesar?” he bellows. “I don’t follow the NBA!” Veronica takes the job and abandons Ron. But opportunity comes in the form of a job offer that sounds crazy: a new 24-hour news channel, being launched by an Aussie billionaire. Its name? GNN. Burgundy heads for New York, stopping to gather the old news team from San Diego – er, San Di-AHgo, as he pronounces it: overly emotional sportscaster Champ Kind (David Koechner), now running a chicken joint; overly sexed reporter Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd), now photographing cats; and overly insane weatherman Brick Tamland (Steve Carell, reliably hilarious) now dead. Or so he thinks. Burgundy’s new nemesis is the impossibly good-looking, self-adoring anchorman Jack Lime (James Marsden, perfect in such self-mocking roles). And his superior is the overachieving Linda Jackson (Meagan Good), who finds Burgundy ridiculous but then inexplicably falls for him. Linda is not only a woman but black, a double-whammy for the chauvinistic Burgundy; their coupling, however improbable, leads to a very funny dinner-table scene with Linda’s disapproving family. Of course, underdog Ron has tricks up his sleeve. “Why do we need to tell the people what they need to hear?” he muses. “Why can’t we tell them what they WANT to hear?” And they’re off, satirizing today’s infotainment brand of cable news. A routine involving an endless car chase and, well, Yasser Arafat (yes, Yasser Arafat) is one of the more inspired scenes in the film. The starry cast also includes Kristen Wiig, intensely weird as only she can be. And there’s the finale, a news-team rumble in midtown Manhattan involving more celebrity cameos than you ever thought possible. Sacha Baron Cohen as a BBC anchor? Only the beginning. Of course, it all feels like too much. But you can’t have too much of a good thing, remember? –

Husband seeking compromise Advance medical directives should be created, made readily available should give his wife a break Dear Abby: I have been married to my wife for a year and a half, and we have an infant child. I work while my wife stays home. My problem is she doesn’t like me playing sports and hanging out with friends. I have tried to make concessions and cut down playing sports to once a week. (I used to play two or three times a week, but that’s not good enough for my wife.) On game night, when I get home she gives me the silent treatment. She used to come to my games but won’t now, even though she has girlfriends who attend them. As for hanging out with my friends, I barely see them anymore – and when I do, they come here. If they stay any longer than 30 minutes, it causes a problem, and my wife again won’t talk to me for the rest of the night. I have tried to compromise, but she feels as though any time I spend away from her and the baby is a nono. Am I wrong to want to play sports and see my guy friends? I have tried talking to her about this, but she thinks any compromise is basically me doing what I want and her having to deal with it.

– Ontario, Canada, Reader Dear Reader: You should not become a couch potato or become isolated from your friends because you are married and a parent. And neither should your wife.

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips She may resent the time you spend with your friends because she’s stuck at home taking care of the baby. You are her only adult company, and in a way she may be jealous you’re enjoying freedom she can’t. Your wife should not be doing all the parenting. One day or evening a week YOU should take care of the baby while SHE takes a break with her friends or family. It could do wonders for your relationship. If you can agree on this, it could save your marriage. If you can’t, then the two of you should get counseling. Marriage isn’t supposed to put people in isolation – and that’s what it appears your wife is trying to accomplish with you. Dear Abby: For the past 10 years, the holiday season has brought with it arguments between my wife and me. We both get along with our inlaws and do many things with both sides of our families. But for some reason, my wife makes arrangements for the holidays without discussing them with me first. This year, she told her mom we would host Thanksgiving and that I would have to tell my family we wouldn’t be coming to them.

My wife’s sisters are not close to their in-laws. Am I wrong to think she should have discussed the matter with me before deciding unilaterally what we’re doing for the holidays? Our kids need to see ALL their grandparents on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Oh – our parents live only seven minutes from each other. – Holiday Blues In

Wisconsin Dear Holiday Blues: What your wife did was inconsiderate. You are a couple, and she should have discussed her plan with you before issuing any invitations to see if you were in agreement. If your home is too small to accommodate both sets of in-laws at the same time, a compromise would be to alternate holidays with each set so no family feels excluded. Dear Abby: Is it acceptable to wear a silver dress to a wedding if you are going as a guest and not a member of the bridal party? Or is silver too close to white and therefore taboo? – Invitee In College

Park, Md. Dear Invitee: The rule is that wedding guests should not wear anything that might distract attention from the bride. If your dress is silver lamé or covered in silver sequins, it would be better to dress less conspicuously.

Dear Dr. K: This isn’t really a medical question, but I hope you’ll answer it anyway. Where should I keep my advance medical directive? Dear Reader: You raise an important issue, and I’m happy to address it. In fact, your question is timely, because I have just discussed with my lawyer where to store my advance medical directive. Let me tell you what I’ve learned. For readers who are not familiar with the term, advance directives are documents that allow you to describe what kind of medical care you hope to receive if an accident or illness renders you unable to communicate. The health care power of attorney, living will and do-not-resuscitate order (DNR) are all advance directives. Some people worry advance directives mean giving up control over their medical treatment. But as long as you are able to communicate decisions, your word overrides anything you’ve written. In fact, I think of my advance directives as my way of main-

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff taining control over how I am treated, should I become critically ill. Advance directives enable you to choose the person (your agent) who will make medical decisions for you when you are unable to do so. Using directives, you may offer as much or as little guidance as you like. Many people understandably want to keep their advance directives in a secure place. But if these documents are locked away in a safe-deposit box, they won’t be much help if you’re unexpectedly hospitalized. Here are some people who should have copies of your advance directives and other places they should be filed: • Your health care agent. • Your doctor. A copy of your advance directives should be in your file and medical record. • Your hospital chart. If there is one hospital where your doctor is likely to hospitalize you, ask to have

a copy of your advance directives put in your chart. • A safe spot in your home. File the original documents in a secure place in your home. Tell your agent, family and friends where you put them. • Carry it with you. Put a card with your health care agent’s name and contact information and where you’ve put the original copy of your directives in your wallet or purse. • In the glove compartment of your car. A colleague of mine recommended this, and it seems like a good idea to me. When I completed my first advanced medical directive, I was a healthy adult in mid-life. I had a very small risk of becoming seriously ill. But I wondered why it had taken me so long. At any age, and in any state of health, bad things can happen. Hopefully, that time will never come for me. But if it does, I want to control how I’m treated.

Adele gets royal honor

THINGS

WORTH TALKIN’ ABOUT

Friday, December 20, 2013 • Section C • Page 10

Singing star Adele has been honored at Buckingham Palace, being made a Member of the Order of the British Empire by Prince Charles. The 25-year-old with the soulful voice has become a worldwide star since her debut album topped the charts in 2008. Last year she performed the title song in the latest James Bond film, “Skyfall.” She received an Academy Award for that effort. Adele has recovered from throat problems that jeopardized her singing voice two years ago. She won a record six Grammy awards last year.

BUZZWORTHY

Patriarch suspended from ‘Duck Dynasty’ after disparaging comments “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson – suspended from the series indefinitely after making disparaging remarks about gays – is getting some support from key followers. Sarah Palin posted a picture on her Facebook page of her with the reality show clan with the message, “Free Speech is an endangered species.” And Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal also lamented the suspension on free speech terms. “It’s a messed-up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended,” the governor said in a statement Thursday (the show is filmed in his state.) A&E announced Wednesday what it called a “hiatus” for Robertson, 67, after he disparaged gays in the January edition of GQ magazine. He also said that, growing up in Louisiana before the Civil Rights movement, he never saw mistreatment of blacks. In a statement, A&E said it was extremely disappointed to see Robertson’s anti-gay remarks, which it said were based on his personal beliefs and do not reflect those of A&E Networks or the show. A&E Networks, a joint venture of The Walt Disney Co. and Hearst Corp., called itself a supporter of the lesbian and gay community. The channel’s move was lauded by the gay and lesbian media advocacy group GLAAD, which had quickly condemned Robertson’s comments.

Lovato confirms ‘X Factor’ exit

‘Walking Dead’ creator sues AMC

Demi Lovato says she’s leaving “The X Factor” to focus on her music career. In an interview after Wednesday’s performance show the 21-year-old singer-actress said she wanted to return to her “roots.” Lavoto plans to devote next year to touring and working on a new album. “X Factor” producer-judge Simon Cowell said working with Lovato has been “fun,” but the timing is right for “something new.” Cowell would not comment on potential replacements for Lovato. This is the “Heart Attack” singer’s second season on the judging panel of the Fox competition. Lovato’s fourth studio album, “Demi,” debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 albums chart in May.

The creator of “The Walking Dead” is suing AMC over what he claims is an effort to deny him tens of millions of dollars in profit from the hit drama. Oscar-nominated writer-director Frank Darabont (“The Shawshank Redemption,” “The Green Mile”) and Creative Arts Agency filed suit Tuesday in New York Supreme Court against defendants including AMC Network Entertainment LLC. Their suit claims despite four seasons of “unprecedented programming success and profitability” for the defendants, Darabont hasn’t received any profits for developing the series. AMC declined Wednesday to comment on the suit, which also alleges Darabont was fired as producer without cause. He developed “The Walking Dead” from Robert Kirkman’s comic book series about zombies. The lawsuit alleges AMC decided to produce the series in-house and paid itself a deliberately low license fee to air it, engaging in what the suit labels “the improper and abusive practice of ‘self-dealing.’ ” “The sole goal of this sham transaction is to enhance the profits of the parent company by minimizing the revenues that go into the ‘pool’ of funds for the show’s profit participants,” the suit alleges. The suit reflects others filed by creators of successful TV shows, including “Will & Grace.” When a studio licenses a show to be aired by an affiliated network or cable channel, the fee can fail to reflect fair market value and diminish payments to creators and others, such lawsuits argue. Darabont’s legal action follows his clouded exit from “The Walking Dead” early in its second season and critical public comments he has made about AMC.

A 2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport. Its 3.6-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine has 420 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. Photo provided

Cadillac CTS takes aim at BMW with spaceship lights, brute power ess of the $61,000 Cadillac CTS Vsport. No, I won’t be speeding, or even using more than a few of the 420 horsepower available in the twin-turbocharged V-6. The road has a rhythm, so I’m seeing how smoothly the sports sedan can negotiate the scramble of curves without disturbing any of its occupants from their slumber. This is what Cadillac’s four-door CTS is meant to do: Commute long

By JASON H. HARPER Bloomberg News Four-thirty, Monday morning, heading back to New York City after a weekend in rural Pennsylvania, and all the passengers in the Cadillac are asleep. It’s dark out and chilly, the car’s tires are cold and the road is narrow and full of twists. A perfect time to test the prow-

of the 5 Series. And there will likely be a 7 Series contender down the road. The surprising thing is how much better Cadillac is pulling off this formula than the other guys. The days when it offered land-lubbering autos for old men slathered in aftershave are very much behind it.

Cars with a balance of brute power and finesse, incisive technology, a dose of show-offy swagger. Bavaria via Detroit. Like other notable Japanese and European brands, Cadillac is now actively aping the dimensions of BMW’s cars. The ATS sedan, released last year, is about the same size as a 3 Series and the reworked CTS has grown into the same basic stature

distances with up to five people, skillfully wending through secondary roads and howling down highways. And never look like it’s breaking a sweat. Cadillac is a brand that knows what it wants to be: BMW. Well, an American BMW, anyhow. No company executive would be gauche enough to openly admit such a thing, but note the traits Cadillac is carefully cultivating.

A 3.6-liter, 283-horsepower V-6 engine is mated to a shiftable six-speed automatic transmission in the three-row, seven-passenger 2014 Chrysler Town & Country minivan. Photo provided

Chrysler still America’s favorite 2014 Town & Country minivan outfitted with buyers’ favorite bells and whistles Chrysler was the first to introduce a vehicle called the minivan 30 years ago. In the intervening years, the company has worked hard to maintain leadership in design and sale of this family-oriented hauler of people and cargo. Domestic competition came and went from Ford Motor Co. and General Motors. Who remembers the Ford Windstar, Chevrolet Venture or Pontiac Montana? Today’s prime Chrysler Group minivan competitors are automotive companies based in Japan. They are Honda (Odyssey), Toyota (Sienna) and Nissan (Quest). Chrysler remains the bellwether of minivans, whether it is the company’s Dodge Grand Caravan or its namesake Town & Country. What has kept Chrysler at the forefront? Patience with the buying public, which can be whimsical at times, and never straying too far from what a minivan was designed for in the first place. Chrysler also has kept up with the times. If a competitor came out with power sliding rear doors, it followed. If faddish tailgate seats were introduced by someone else, lo and behold they became a common sight in succeeding years on Chrysler minivan products. Chrysler learned lessons, too. In 2008, the company introduced a pop-up table in the cargo area on which to eat snacks or play games. It was not a hit, and by 2011, the feature was discontinued. In 2004, Stow ‘N Go was introduced, and the second of the three rows of seats could be stowed to create a flat load floor. It was a huge hit and still is. In 2005, both

REVIEWS Jerry Kuyper second- and third-row seats were designed to “disappear” to form a flat load floor. That is the way it stands today, which means there are a possible 144 cubic feet of flat floor storage space behind the front bucket seats. In for a week’s test run was the 2014 Chrysler Town & Country. It was a loaded Limited model, which means the asking price was $41,295. It had all the extras, including power folding third row, power rear vent windows, dual screen and DVD entertainment system for second and third row viewing (overhead 9-inch screens for both rows), first and second row heated seats, a 6.5-inch touch screen and voice command, a navigation system with Uconnect (maps and audio directions for turn by turn guidance), a 506-watt, nine-speaker sound system with redundant audio controls on a heated leather and wood steering wheel and memory settings for power seats and exterior heated mirrors, radio stations (AM/FM/ satellite bands) and gas and brake pedals. The Limited also has pushbutton start as well as remote start. Prices start at $30,765 for a Touring model and climb to $32,195 for an S, $33,995 for a Touring L, $35,695 for a 30th Anniversary and finally $41,295 for the Limited. All models are powered by a 3.6-liter, 283-horsepower, 24-valve V-6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Chrysler publicists claim it has “best in class

(minivan)” horsepower. The engine can haul seven people in three rows of seats as well as tow a 3,500-pound trailer. Overhead is a set of roof rails that can safely carry 150 pounds. The crossbars, when not in use, fold down into the side rails. Fuel economy usually is determined by driving habits, weather and road conditions, and weight of cargo and occupants on board. During the test week, with an average of three occupants on board, the Limited model averaged 21.4 miles per gallon of gasoline. Unleaded regular fuel is recommended for the 20-gallon tank. The Environmental Protection Agency has this minivan as averaging 25 mpg on highways, 17 mpg in the city and 20 mpg in combined usage. This is a big minivan, and it takes some skill to park. On the inside, maneuverability is key. A console between the front seats can be removed if more space is required. A big alley leads from the second row bucket seats to the third row. The third row folds into a well, manually on some models but by power on the Limited. If this third row is upright, there are 33 cubic feet of storage space. With the third row stored in the well and the second row seats upright, cargo space expands to 83 cubic feet. This is a lot of room for a family of four to sit in the first two rows and store baggage, bicycles and other vacation items in the rear load floor. The sides of this van are relatively straight to make storage of clumsy items easier. A 4-foot-by-8-foot sheet of plywood fits in nicely,

Chrysler has not succumbed to the aerodynamic curvature look for this minivan. With wells provided for the two rows of seats, the spare tire is positioned under the floor between the front bucket seats. The spare is lowered by a wrench (provided) to the ground, where it can be slid out from under the vehicle and used where needed. Each minivan manufacturer has ingenious ways of storing its spare tires. Safety features of the Limited include blind spot and cross path detection, a rear park assist system, rain sensitive windshield wipers (turn on automatically to wipe clean, even if splashed by a passing or oncoming vehicle), rear back-up camera, stability control, tire pressure monitoring system, keyless entry, airbags in front, front sides and overhead for three rows, headrests for all seven seat belt positions and

a knee airbag bolster for the driver. This is a comfortable minivan with adequate leg room in all three rows. The third row is confining but easy to get to as the second row buckets flip up and out of the way with a lever. Warranty coverage is three years or 36,000 miles and five years or 100,000 miles on the powertrain and 24-hour roadside assistance. Chrysler is aware of the minivan competition but keeps its practical outlook in mind. The 2008 “Swivel ’N Go” feature is a prime example. This arrangement of a table and two rows of seats facing each other was created with a middle row swiveling to face the rear bench row with the table folding into place between. According to Chrysler officials, families that bought this feature never used it and, what was worse, customers had to choose between the Stow ’N Go or the Swivel ’N Go. There was not

Except for a slight percentage of buyers, Stow ’N Go was chosen. The country’s favorite minivan remains, after 30 years, a Chrysler Group product, whether it is the Town & Country or the Dodge Grand Caravan. In 2012, the last complete year with sales figures, Chrysler sold 205,182 of these vehicles which compared with Toyota’s 111,429 (Sienna), Honda’s 107,068 (Odyssey) and Nissan’s 12,199 (Quest).

Keith Perry (left) and Alain Squindo of RM Auctions with a 1933 Duesenberg on Perry Street in New York. The classic car was part of “Art of the Automobile,” the first car auction in Manhattan in more than a decade.

Bloomberg News NEW YORK – I took a spin around the block in a 1933 Duesenberg. People stopped to stare, snap photos and give a thumbs-up. The trip lasted 15 minutes and caused two traffic jams. The ride was a prelude to “Art of the Automobile,” the first car auction in Manhattan in more than a decade. Organized by Sotheby’s and RM Auctions, it offered 30 trophy vehicles valued at a combined $50 million. The automobiles were on view on the 10th floor of Sotheby’s York Avenue headquarters in Manhattan. Vintage Bugattis and Ferraris were parked on pedestals in the same space where Andy Warhol’s $105 million “Silver Car Crash” and hedge fund manager Steven Cohen’s art trove were displayed. Squashed on the front seat inches from the driver, I found the car’s seductive looks exceeded its practical benefits. Although there was a vanity in the back seat for applying lipstick, the rear-view mirror

was so tiny it could fit in my purse. And the side mirrors, attached to the side mount covers, seemed miles away. Estimated at $2 million to $2.5 million, the Duesey could drive as fast as 100 mph, but we proceeded at a snail’s pace. The car was too bulky to pass a parked truck or a double-parked Honda. We had to wait for them to move, and, of course, the cars lining up behind us began a frenzied honking. “It’s not about practicality,” said Don Williams, whose Blackhawk Collection in Danville, Calif., includes about 100 cars, including a 1930s Duesenberg once driven by a mayor of New York. “You don’t take a car like this grocery shopping.” Dueseys were always the cars of choice for the rich and powerful. At about $20,000 in the 1930s, the money “could have paid for a block of single family houses,” said Alain Squindo, vice president of RM Auctions and my ride companion. “It was designed like a bespoke suit.” The owners could choose everything from color to the

ceiling height, to ensure the car could accommodate extravagant ladies’ hats. The top lot by estimate at the Sotheby’s/RM Auctions sale is a 1964 Ferrari 250 LM by Carrozzeria Scaglietti, chassis number 6107, estimated at $12 million to $15 million. Other highlights include a 1956 Aston Martin “Supersonic,” expected to bring $1.8 million to $2.4 million. It was driven by American grand-prix racer Harry Schell and owned by Gail Whitney Vanderbilt and her husband, Richard Cowell, a record-setting water skier. An orange Lincoln made by Italian coach-builder Felice Mario Boano has an estimated sale price of $2 million to $2.5 million. An art deco-inspired, cream-colored 1938 Talbot-Lago cabriolet made by French coachbuilders Figoni et Falaschi is estimated at $8 million to $10 million. “I’ve been playing with these beautiful cars all my life,” said Williams, who is familiar with at least 20 cars in the auction. “To me they’ve always been art.”

CTS aimed at luxury experience • CTS Continued from page D1 The CTS heralded the beginning of this transition more than a decade ago, and so the release of the third generation, 2014- year model is a big deal indeed. The new CTS comes with three engine specifications: A turbo 2.0-liter 4-cylinder ($46,025), a naturally breathing 3.6-liter V-6 ($54,625) and the twin-turbo V-6 Vsport ($59,995). They are the equivalents of the BMW 528i, 535i, and 550i. Enthusiasts who paid attention to the last generation CTS will find the Vsport name misleading. The CTS-V models had a powerful Corvette-derived V-8 shoehorned into them. These got lots of press and attention. The fact that Cadillac has co-opted the too-similar Vsport name is both mercenary and unfortunate. Even more befuddling, genuine V models will come later. The Vsport is fast, with 430 pound-feet of torque. It goes from zero to 60 miles per hour in 4.4 seconds. High-end performance equipment includes front Brembo brakes, an electronic limited slip differential and a magnetically adjusting

suspension. But to hear some auto folk talk, the Vsport is basically a Corvette with four doors. Those people have got carried away. Weeks earlier I’d taken a Vsport around a race course in Michigan. The car was well balanced, swiveling vigorously through turns. The turbo V-6 has ample torque to explode it out of corners. But many of the CTS’s 3,600-plus pounds are aimed at a luxury experience rather than a tire-squealing one. That’s exactly as it should be, as the car’s sophistication is its best selling point. Its longer length is noticeable and elegant. While the car lost the sharp angles of its predecessor (angles which I quite liked), the grille gains a new, distinctive personality, punched up by a strips of vertical LED running lights. See it approaching in your rear-view mirror and it’s like an enemy attack spaceship from Battlestar Galactica. The interior comes with several options, from rather conservative leather and bland wood to a very seductive carbon fiber with a red tinted weave. The big bummer: The Cue infotainment system has been ported over from the

XTS and ATS. There’s not a single knob to be found, even for volume control, and while the flat surface looks great, it’s next to impossible to use without taking your eyes off the road. Nor is it intuitive. At one point on my drives I tried to change the satellite radio station and ended up marooned on the Elvis station. Elvis was crooning about a “Speedway” (“Pistons pound, plenty of engines ripping around”). Appropriate enough but not exactly my taste. Still, it was either the King or pull over and figure out how to change the station. Which brings me back to my cold road and snoring occupants. No radio, no need to use Cue, just the solid feeling of the steering wheel in hand (the electronic steering on the CTS is one of the best I’ve experienced) and bright headlights cutting through darkness. We transitioned from the windy road to the freeway in one confident surge of power. The CTS worked through commuting traffic surely and effortlessly, and Newark appeared along with the dawn. Somebody stirred in the rear seat just as I entered the Lincoln Tunnel. “Here already?” he asked.

Replaced battery unlikely to cause electrical trouble Last spring, I had the battery replaced in my 2008 Ford Edge Limited at my Ford dealership. Since then, it would go dead after two to three days. I brought it back to the dealership a number of times. One time they did a two-hour system check that found nothing wrong. I brought it back a few days later with the same problem and wanted a different battery installed. Eventually, they replaced it, but the problem persisted. I asked another mechanic to look at the problem. He said there’s a drain coming from the radio/GPS/CD player. Upon further searching, I found when replacing a battery, hi-tech systems are damaged when going from a dead battery to the surge of a new battery. This is going to cost me $1,300 plus labor. Shouldn’t the dealership have known this? – R.J.P., email When I read your question, a question popped into my mind. Why did you have the battery replaced? The answer is simple: The battery no longer would hold a charge, right? Most vehicle owners don’t replace a battery unless it no longer holds a charge. Of course, there are a few individuals who replace a battery as a preventive measure so they are not stranded somewhere. Unfortunately, most of us will wait until a battery dies before replacing it. On a side note, with winter taking grip on the region, it would be wise to replace a battery that is three or more years old. I plan to check the batteries in my fleet. Certainly, a surge of electrical power beyond the designed tolerance of a system could damage a component. Be this as it may, a battery is a storage

DR. GIZMO Phil Arendt container for electricity. A battery does not make or produce electricity. It stores it. It can’t store more than it is designed to store, so it is not capable of storing say 15, 16, 18, 24 or 36 volts when it is designed for 12 plus volts. Additionally, it is a source for electrical devices to tap and use until the stored power is depleted. Your battery is designed to store a little more than 12 volts. It can’t store more than it is designed to contain. Installing a battery that meets and does not exceed vehicle design does not have the ability to surge power into a system to damage components. I don’t think a repair shop would install a 24-volt aircraft battery in a car, but anything is possible. What will cause damage are issues such as an improper jump start procedure or a failure in the alternator. Once a battery reaches capacity, it will not store more power and usually shorts out much like any other electrical device that is hit with electrical power that exceeds limits. So, unless the alternator is defective, and it is not, there must have been a peripheral influence on the vehicle such as a lightning strike or jump start that caused an alleged power surge that damaged the infotainment system. Having said all of this, has an experienced technician with the proper tools and equipment tried to reprogram the infotainment system? Doing so might just cure the electrical draw

issue that depletes the battery. Or perhaps there is another issue such as a sticking relay that powers up a device when the ignition switch is turned off. Maybe, there is an issue such as a teenager who listens to the car radio for hours when dad isn’t around.

I have a 1998 Chevrolet Prizm that’s had its share of issues, but it has been running well the past few years. I’ve recently noticed the idle seems rougher and usually gets worse the longer the car idles. The throttle body was cleaned. The idle air control valve was OK, and the spark plugs were replaced. The check engine light has never turned on. Do you have any idea what might be causing the issue and how to resolve it? – A.W., email Recently, a rough idle was brought to my attention on a vehicle exactly like yours. A check of the idle found the idle speed was a little faster than specifications, and the issue that was described as a rough idle turned out to be a resonance sound from the exhaust system. Be sure you are accurate when you describe the symptoms to a technician. In my case, the inaccuracy caused a misunderstanding, which sent me down the wrong diagnostic path. More questions revealed the real issue, and a quick adjustment slowed the idle speed by 25 rpm. Bingo, the noise was squelched. The rough idle in your vehicle might have other causes such as low engine coolant temperature, leaky fuel injectors, a vacuum leak or perhaps hefty carbon deposits caused by low speed

driving or periods of prolonged engine idling. Ask your favorite technician to consider these suggestions.

I love my 2008 Mercury Milan. It has 66,000 miles. It’s in like-new condition and hasn’t given me any trouble until now. The brakes were replaced about 20,000 miles ago. Last week, the brake pedal became very low. I went to my repair shop that has been servicing the car for a couple of years. It’s the shop that replaced the brakes. They checked over the car and could not find any leaks. They also said the brake pads still had a lot of life left, so there was no need to replace them. They did a number of tests and bled the fluid from the lines. The brake pedal remained low. They also replaced the master cylinder. None of the work cured the trouble. Now they think a part in the ABS system is causing the issue. They are not 100 percent sure, and it’s expensive to replace it. They call it the HCU. Could it cause a low pedal? – G.N., email Yes. The hydraulic control unit is the part of the antilock brake system that creates hydraulic pressure via a pump. If the pump motor has failed or there is an internal problem such as a failed valve assembly, pressure may not build. This indeed could cause a low brake pedal. Replacing the unit should cure the issue.

The check engine light turned on in my 2008 Chrysler Sebring with a 2.7-liter engine and 89,000 miles. When the light turned on, the automatic transmission stuck in second gear. I went to an

auto supply store to have the codes checked. The parts man found a code for an overdrive solenoid. He suggested I take the car to a transmission shop to have it checked over. I checked the fluid, and it looks fine. Would changing the fluid resolve the problem? Is there anything else I can do to return the transmission to normal? – F.L.S., email There appears to be an electrical issue in the overdrive circuit. There are many possible causes for such an issue, including a failed solenoid. Tests of the circuit are necessary to determine the exact cause of the condition. Flushing the transmission will not cure an electrical issue. There is one process you can try that might return normal operation. Disconnect the battery cables. Leave them off for 15 or 20 minutes. This will force the engine and transmission modules into a relearn process once the cables are secured to the battery. Next, go for a drive. This might reset values in the computer modules, and the transmission might return to normal operation. If this does not cure the issue, it’s time to go to your favorite repair shop for diagnosis.

I have a 1998 Nissan Frontier with turn signals that don’t work. I’ve checked the fuses. They are fine. When I flip the handle to signal, I can hear the flasher clicking, but front and rear bulbs don’t flash on and off. I replaced all the bulbs and the flasher relay, but it’s not fixed. Do you know what’s wrong? – K.R., email This issue might be due to a failed turn signal switch. A technician needs to check the circuit to make

sure the switch is receiving power and is properly grounded. If the circuit is sound, more than likely the switch needs replacement.

The “check charging system” light in my 2006 Chevrolet Corvette intermittently turns on. I had the car tested, but my shop found everything normal, and the light never turned on for them. I had them replace the battery anyway. A week later, the light turned on again and I returned to the shop. Of course, the light turned off by the time I got to the shop. They did a number of tests and checked wires at the fuse panel. Everything checked out fine. I asked them to replace the generator, but they did not want to because they say it checks out fine. The battery has never died. Only the light turns on. Do you think the generator/alternator is the problem? – G.C., email It’s possible for an alternator to have an intermittent problem that causes the light to illuminate. If you are willing to replace the unit with the understanding that it may not correct the issue, your shop might agree to do the work. With that said, consider installing an original equipment manufacturer part as opposed to an aftermarket part. The odds are much better that an O.E.M. alternator will cure the issue.

THE MARKETS

Friday, December 20, 2013 Northwest Herald

CRYSTAL LAKE – The median sales price for McHenry County homes increased 15.4 percent to $150,000 in November, up from $130,000 during the same month last year, even as home sales tapered with fewer homes on the market. Existing home sales in McHenry County fell 3.5 percent to 361, down from 374 in November 2012, according to figures released Thursday by the Illinois Association of Realtors. Though home sales slipped year-over-year in November, yearto-date closed sales remained significantly above 2012 levels. Through November, home sales were up 31.5 percent to 4,583, compared with 3,485 in the first 11 months of 2012. The median sales price for single-family homes increased 17.3 percent to $176,000 in November. Condo prices increased 23 percent to $110,000. Year-to-date, the median sales price for

all properties in McHenry County was up 8.5 percent to $153,000, compared with $141,000 in the first 11 months of 2012. Countywide, home prices remain well below 2008 levels. In November, the inventory of homes for sale declined 25.3 percent to 1,893, down from 2,535 in November 2012. Homes also spent less time on the market. The number of days on the market until sale was down 18 percent to 73 days, compared with 89 days in November 2012. In Kane County, the median sales price for all properties was up 16.7 percent to $160,500, up from $137,500 in November 2012. Homes sales increased 5.5 percent in November even though inventory fell 28.7 percent in Kane County. In Lake County, the median sales price for all properties increased 6 percent to $167,500, compared with $158,000 in November 2012. Closed sales were down 1.5 percent as inventory fell 27.6 percent in Lake County.

Statewide, home sales slipped 1.8 percent to 10,624 homes sold, down from 10,820 in November 2012. Housing inventory in Illinois was down 19.7 percent from a year earlier, dropping from 77,109 homes for sale in November 2012 to 61,882 this year, according to the Illinois Association of Realtors. “This is a classic case of supply and demand,” Phil Chiles, president of the Illinois Association of Realtors, said in a news release. “The low number of homes on the market is forcing consumers, who very much want to buy, to pay a bit more. What’s important to note is that there’s still a lot of interest in purchasing a home despite the lower selection.” Statewide the median price in November was $145,000, an increase of 7.4 percent from November 2012 when the median price was $135,000.

Target says that about 40 million credit and debit card accounts may have been affected by a data breach that occurred at its U.S. stores between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15.

Target: 40 million card accounts may be breached Theft marks second-largest in U.S.; hits during holidays By ANNE D’INNOCENZIO and MICHELLE CHAPMAN The Associated Press Target is grappling with a data security nightmare that threatens to drive off holiday shoppers during the company’s busiest time of year. The nation’s second-largest discounter said Thursday that data connected to about 40 million credit- and debit-card accounts was stolen as part of a breach that began over the Thanksgiving weekend. The data theft marks the secondlargest credit card breach in the U.S. after retailer TJX Cos. announced in 2007 that at least 45.7 million creditand debit-card users were exposed to credit-card fraud. Target’s acknowledgement came a day after news reports surfaced that the discounter was investigating a breach. The chain said customers who made purchases by swiping their cards at terminals in its U.S. stores between Nov. 27 and Dec. 15 may have had their accounts exposed. The stolen data includes customer names, credit- and debit-card numbers, card expiration dates and the three-digit security codes located on the backs of cards. The data breach did not affect online purchases, the company said. The stolen information included Target store brand cards and major card brands such as Visa and MasterCard. The Minneapolis company, which has 1,797 stores in the U.S. and 124 in Canada, said it immediately told

authorities and financial institutions once it became aware of the breach Dec. 15. The company is teaming with a third-party forensics firm to investigate and prevent future breaches. The breach is the latest in a series of technology crises for Target. The company faced tough criticism in late 2011 after it drummed up hype around its offerings from Italian designer Missoni only to see its website crash. The site was down most of the day the designer’s collection launched. The company angered customers further with numerous online delays for products and even order cancellations. But the credit-card breach poses an even more serious problem for Target and threatens to scare away shoppers who worry about the safety of their personal data. “A data breach is of itself a huge reputational issue,” said Jeremy Robinson-Leon, a principal at Group Gordon, a corporate and crisis public relations firm. He noted that Target needs to send the message that it’s rectifying the problem and working with customers to answer questions. He believes Target should have acknowledged the problem Wednesday rather than waiting until early Thursday. “This is close to the worst time to have it happen,” Robinson-Leon said. “If I am a Target customer, I think I would be much more likely to go to a competitor over the next few days, rather than risk the potential to have my information be compromised.” Target advised customers Thursday to check their statements careful-

ly. Those who see suspicious charges on the cards should report it to their credit card companies and call Target at 866-852-8680. Cases of identity theft also can be reported to law enforcement or the Federal Trade Commission. “Target’s first priority is preserving the trust of our guests, and we have moved swiftly to address this issue, so guests can shop with confidence. We regret any inconvenience this may cause,” Chairman, President and CEO Gregg Steinhafel said in a statement Thursday. Many displeased Target customers left angry comments on the company’s Facebook page. Some threatened to stop shopping at the store. Many customers complained they couldn’t get through to the call center and couldn’t get on Target’s branded credit-card website. Target apologized on its Facebook page and said it is “working hard” to resolve the issue and is adding more workers to field the calls and help solve website issues. Christopher Browning, 23 of Chesterfield, Va., said he was the victim of credit card fraud earlier this week, and he believes it was tied to a purchase he made at Target with his Visa card on Black Friday. However, he called Visa on Thursday and the card issuer couldn’t confirm. He said he hasn’t been able to get through Target’s call center. On Monday, Browning received a call from his bank’s anti-fraud unit saying that there were two attempts

DIXON – Shaw Media’s Board of Directors elected three executives to serve as vice presidents and officers of the company. At its Dec. 12 meeting, the company elected Don T. Bricker vice president of suburban publishing, J. Tom Shaw vice president of digital media, and Ben Shaw vice president of technology. Shaw Media is the parent company of the Northwest Herald. “This is an exciting time for our company,” said John Rung, president of Shaw Media. “We are fortunate to have many talented people in our company. We are particularly pleased that our board of directors has recognized Don, J. Tom and Ben with increased responsibility. I look forward to working with them as we chart the course for a successful future.” Bricker joined Shaw Media in 2008 as publisher of the company’s Kane and DeKalb County publications. He was named regional publisher and group general manager earlier this year. Before joining Shaw, Bricker spent 16 years with Freedom Communications, including four years as publisher of the Appeal-Democrat in Marysville, Calif. J. Tom Shaw joined Shaw Media in 2006. He has held a variety of posts, including publisher of Shaw’s Kane County, Lake County and Suburban Life publications. In the past few years, he has overseen the launch of numerous niche products in print and digital formats. In his new role, J. Tom Shaw will lead efforts to grow audience and sales through digital platforms across Shaw’s Illinois and Iowa operations. Rung announced that a search for J. Tom Shaw’s replacement as publisher of Suburban Life Media would begin immediately. Ben Shaw has been with Shaw Media since 2004. He was named IT Director in 2006 and assumed responsibility for digital operations in 2010. Ben Shaw now will lead technology efforts across the company. He also will develop and maintain the infrastructure necessary to support Shaw’s efforts in digital media and will spearhead the launch of a database marketing program. – Northwest Herald

Illinois unemployment drops to 8.7 percent

Darden looking to spin off or sell Red Lobster NEW YORK – Darden Restaurants said Thursday that it is looking to either spin off or sell Red Lobster as part of its plan to boost value for its shareholders. Those plans also include suspending the opening of new Olive Garden locations and limiting the launch of new LongHorn Steakhouse restaurants. Darden Restaurants Inc. also won’t make any acquisitions of additional brands “for the foreseeable future” and will review senior management’s compensation and incentive programs to put greater emphasis on same-store restaurant sales growth and free cash flow. Red Lobster has 705 restaurants in the U.S. and Canada and is the biggest full service dining seafood specialty restaurant operator in North America.

ber, the department said. The federal government said earlier this month that national unemployment dropped to 7 percent in November from 7.3 percent a month earlier. “Seven consecutive months of job growth shows that our steady economic progress continues. It shows that real progress has been made while reminding us that we have more work to do,” IDES Director Jay Rowell said in a news release. According the monthly Illinois report, the state added 6,700 jobs at trade, transportation and utility companies in November and 6,100 construction

By DAVID MERCER The Associated Press CHAMPAIGN – Unemployment dropped in Illinois in November to 8.7 percent in spite of a sizable loss of manufacturing jobs, the state Department of Employment Security said Thursday. It was the third consecutive monthly decrease, but Illinois’ unemployment rate remains one of the highest in the country. The addition of a net 10,300 privatesector jobs helped push unemployment down by 0.2 percent in Novem-

jobs. “Construction was up everywhere – specialty trade, buildings and roads,” department spokesman Greg Rivara said in an email interview. “One can assume some of it is getting road work in before the deep, deep freeze occurs; buttoning up building projects so inside work can continue during the winter; and some reflects pent-up demand.” But the state’s manufacturers cut payrolls by a net 10,300 jobs. And government employers cut 4,400 jobs. Manufacturing employment had been the strong spot in a sputtering

Facebook to sell 70M Class A stock shares MENLO PARK, Calif. – Facebook and Chairman and CEO Mark Zuckerberg are selling a combined 70 million shares of Class A stock as the social media company prepares to join the Standard & Poor’s 500 index. The offering includes more than 41 million shares from Zuckerberg, who also will buy Class B shares that carry more voting weight. After a premarket stock dip of more than 4 percent on the news, Facebook’s stock recovered somewhat and was down less than 1 percent in afternoon trading on Thursday. The Menlo Park, Calif., company said Thursday that the Class A shares will be offered mainly to index funds whose portfolios are based on stocks included in the index. The S&P 500 will add Facebook on Friday after markets close. The index is a list of companies that have a market capitalization over $4 billion and is meant to be a snapshot of the U.S. economy.

state economy until this year. But since then it’s slowed down. The department, in particular, said losses are because of a slowdown in mining around the world. One of the state’s major employers, Peoria-based Caterpillar, has blamed widespread layoffs on cuts in sales of its mining equipment. Those layoffs have hit Caterpillar Inc. factories in Peoria, Decatur and elsewhere. November figures for every state aren’t available, but Illinois has been among the highest unemployment states for months. In October, three states had higher unemployment.

A passer-by walks near an entrance to a Target retail store Thursday Watertown, Mass.

Company encourages vigilance lure shoppers with a 5 percent discount. The company said during its earnings call in November that as of October some 20 percent of store customers have the Target branded cards. In fact, households that activate a Target-branded card have increased their spending at the store by about 50 percent on average, the company said. “This is how Target is getting more customers in the stores,” said Brian Sozzi, CEO and Chief Equities Strategist at Belus Capital Advisors. “It’s telling people to use the card. It’s been a big win. If they lose that trust, that person goes to Wal-Mart.” Even if Target shoppers haven’t noticed suspicious activity on their credit card accounts, a Target spokeswoman said, “we encourage everyone to be vigilant.” Target hasn’t disclosed exactly how the data breach occurred, but said it has fixed the problem. “The fact this breach can happen with all of their security in place is really alarming,” said Avivah Litan, a security analyst with Gartner Research.

• TARGET Continued from page E1 to use his credit card in California – one at a casino in Tracey, Calif., for $8,000 and the other at a casino in Pacheco, for $3,000. Both occurred Sunday, and both were denied. He canceled his credit card and plans to use cash. “I won’t shop at Target again until the people behind this theft are caught or the reasons for the breach are identified and fixed,” Browning said. Brianna Byrnes, 22, of Kansas City, Mo., a student at the University of Missouri-Kansas City and a call-center worker, said she made a Target purchase during the affected period. She said the situation made her “a little bit” nervous but was still planning to shop for toys at the retailer. “I’ve never had anyone steal my identity. I guess it’s taking a risk.” The incident is particularly troublesome for Target because it has used its branded credit and debit cards as a marketing tool to

The number of people who bought existing U.S. homes in November declined for the third straight month. Higher mortgage rates have made home-buying more expensive, while the lingering effect of the October government shutdown might have deterred some sales. Home resales fell 4.3 percent to an annual rate of 4.90 million, the National Association of Realtors said Thursday. That was the weakest pace since December 2012 and the first time since April that the pace has slipped below 5 million. Still, the Realtors’ group predicts that total sales this year will be 5.1 million. That would be the strongest since 2007, when the housing bubble burst. But it’s still below the 5.5 million generally associated with healthy housing markets. Home sales could rebound in the new year if the strengthening job market lifts incomes and builds confidence in the economy. Over the summer, resales reached a pace of 5.39 million, the fastest in four years. But sales began to slow in September as the costs of buying a home rose. Mortgage rates are nearly a full percentage point higher than in the spring, when they were near record lows. And a limited supply of homes on the market has driven up prices. The combination has made home buying less affordable,

particularly for first-timers. Sales in November were 1.2 percent lower than in the same month a year ago, the first year-over-year decline in 29 months. The Realtors’ group said the main factor in the sales decline was less affordability. But it also cited fallout from the 16-day partial closure of the federal government, which might have delayed some sales. The median sales price of an existing home was $196,300 in November. That was a slight decrease from October but 9.4 percent higher than a year ago. Home-buying has declined 10.1 percent in Western states during the past 12 months. That drop has been partially offset by stronger sales in the Northeast and South. The number of homes on the market in November fell 0.9 percent from October. But the supply has increased over the past 12 months. This could slow the rate of price increases because more homes would be available for sale. There are signs that housing will strengthen next year. Builders broke ground on new homes last month at the fastest pace in more than five years. And builders’ confidence in the market rose this month to match the highest level in eight years. The market has received a boost from investors and allcash buyers. Cash purchases made up 32 percent of transactions in November, up from 30 percent a year ago. • The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Arne Glimcher, an art dealer, ilm producer and director, said, “When Robert Benton was doing the movie ‘Still of the Night,’ I’d choreographed the auction scene and supplied the paintings and had a bit part -- I was bidding against Meryl Streep.” Except for the occasional passout, every bridge deal begins with the bidding. It is intended primarily to help the side with the balance of power, but each call gives information to the opponents. In this deal, South opened one spade in the second seat, and North responded three spades, a game-invitational limit raise. Now South should have raised to four spades because it was unlikely that North could cover all of South’s losers. However, South control-bid four clubs, hoping North had the spade king-queen, diamond ace and a singleton heart. North control-bid four diamonds. And South signed off in four spades, telling the world that he did not have a heart control. Then North, since he did not have one either, passed.

Now it was easy for West to lead the heart nine. East won with his jack, cashed the heart ace and heart king, then led his last heart. Should South have ruffed high or low? The auction told West what to lead. But it also told South, who almost certainly held the spade queen. East passed as dealer, but had already produced 10 high-card points in hearts. If he had held the spade queen too, he surely would have opened the bidding. So South ruffed with his spade ace, ran the spade jack through West, and made his contract.

Be careful not to exaggerate your interest by saying things that you don’t mean. Take the time to be sure of matters before making any announcements. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Someone is likely to meddle in your personal life. If you find that you’re in need of advice, seek out an impartial outsider, but be sure to tell them the full story. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Avoid taking any risks today. Hide your money and avoid the temptation to make impulse purchases of household items. Make absolutely sure that any legal matters are handled diligently. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- The home front will be extremely active today. Make a list and plan your day carefully in order to avoid setbacks. Make sure to prioritize whatever needs to be done. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Problems with authority will crop up at this time. Be as tactful as possible and avoid antagonizing easily offended parties. You can be respectful without letting your freedom be infringed. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Group dynamics are bound to cause you distress. The only person who can help you at this time is you. Put your energy into making self-improvements if you want to be successful. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Avoid procrastinating and gossiping with your peers. Focus on completing your work, and you will be noticed for your hard work and integrity. Advancement is within reach. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Your partner may be feeling rejected. You must open up the channels of communication, or problems will arise. A secret or untoward relationship with a colleague could develop if you’re not careful.
