Lawmakers work Tuesday toward passing pension legislation while on the House floor during a session at the Illinois State Capitol. The House voted 62-53 in favor of the plan, sending it to Gov. Pat Quinn, who has said he will sign it.

How they voted

kcraver@shawmedia.com A controversial but significant overhaul of Illinois’ ailing state-run pension systems is on its way to Gov. Pat Quinn after barely squeaking through both houses of the General Assembly. In a landmark Tuesday vote, the House and Senate approved a bill aimed at saving the systems by reining in annual cost-of-living increases and raising retirement ages. Senate Bill 1, which undoubtedly will be taken to court over its constitutionality by the state’s powerful public-sector unions, passed 30-24 in the Senate and 62-53 in the House. Quinn congratulated lawmakers after the vote and pledged to sign the bill as soon as he received it. House Speaker Michael Madigan called the legislation a “well thought-out, well-balanced bill” at the start of House debate. He and the three other legislative leaders – Senate President John Cullerton, House Minority Leader Jim Durkin and Senate Minority Leader Christine Radogno – finished hashing out the bill last week after a 10-member committee from both hous-

State Rep. David McSweeney, R-Barrington Hills, discusses pension legislation on the House floor Tuesday at the Illinois State Capitol. McSweeney voted against the pension bill. es tasked with creating a long-needed fix fell short. “Something’s got to be done. We can’t go on dedicating so much of our resources to this one sector of pensions,” Madigan said. The five state-run pension systems for suburban and downstate teachers, rank-andfile-state employees, judges, university employees and General Assembly members are underfunded by at least $100 billion. More than 20 percent of the state’s current 2014 budget is going to pay the state’s pension obligations, which have

swallowed almost all of the revenue from the 67 percent income tax increase that lawmakers imposed in 2011. Bond rating agencies routinely cite legislative inaction on pension reform in its repeated downgrades of Illinois’ credit rating, which now is the lowest of all 50 states. The bill will save an estimated $160 billion over the next 30 years with the aim of fully funding the pension systems by 2044. Under the plan, the 3 percent COLA retirees get still

Senate Bill 1, which overhauls Illinois’ state-run pension systems, passed 30-24 in the Senate, where local Sens. Pam Althoff, R-McHenry, and Karen McConnaughay, R-St. Charles, voted yes, and Dan Duffy, R-Lake Barrington, voted no. It passed on a 62-53 vote in the House, where Reps. Barbara Wheeler, R-Crystal Lake, and Tim Schmitz, R-Batavia, voted yes, and Reps. Jack Franks, D-Marengo, Mike Tryon, R-Crystal Lake, and David McSweeney, R-Barrington Hills, voted no.

WOODSTOCK – With little fanfare and no discussion, the McHenry County Board chose its next representative on the Regional Transportation Authority Board. County Board members voted Tuesday morning, 220, to appoint Lakewood businessman Blake Hobson to the post effective Jan. 1. He will replace longtime GOP insider Al Jourdan, whose five-year term expired in April but has continued to serve until a replacement was named. Hobson, who has served on the County Board, Lakewood Village and Nunda Township boards, co-owns Huntley-based manufacturing company Image Industries. He beat out nine other applicants for the $25,000-a-year job. The 16-member RTA Board has financial oversight of the three Chicago mass-transit boards of Metra, Pace and the Chicago Transit Authority. Jourdan was appointed as the county’s RTA representative in 2008. He spent 30 years

DETROIT – A federal judge ruled Tuesday that Detroit can use bankruptcy to cut employee pensions and relieve itself of other crushing debts, handing a defeat to the city’s unions and retirees and shifting the case into a delicate new phase. Judge Steven Rhodes, who wondered aloud why the bankruptcy had not happened years ago, said pensions can be altered just like any contract because the Michigan Constitution does not offer bulletproof protection for employee benefits.

Asian nations dominate international test By KIMBERLY HEFLING

Among the findings

The Associated Press WASHINGTON – American students once again lag behind many of their Asian and European peers on a global exam, a continuing trend that often is blamed on child poverty and a diverse population in U.S. schools. Education Secretary Arne Duncan called the results a “picture of educational stagnation” as U.S. students showed little improvement over three years, failing to score in the top 20 on math, reading or science. Students in Shanghai, China’s largest city, had the top scores in all subjects, and Singapore, South Korea, Japan and Hong Kong students weren’t far behind. Even Vietnam, which had its students participate for the first time, had a higher average score in math and science than the United

8LOTTERY

• In math, the U.S. average score was 481. Average scores ranged from 368 in Peru to 613 in Shanghai. The international average was 494. • In science, the U.S. average score was 497. Average scores ranged from 373 in Peru to 580 in Shanghai. The international average was 501. • In reading, the U.S. average score was 498. Average scores ranged from 384 in Peru to 570 in Shanghai. The international average was 496. States. These results again raise the question of whether the U.S. is consistently outperformed because of the widely varied backgrounds of its students. Some are from low-income households,

for example. Others don’t have English as their primary language. But some countries that outperform the U.S. also experience such challenges. “Americans have got a thousand reasons that one country after another is surpassing our achievement, and I have yet to find a good excuse,” said Marc Tucker, president of the National Center on Education and the Economy. About half a million students in 65 nations and educational systems took part in the 2012 Program for International Student Assessment, or PISA, which is coordinated by the Paris-based Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, or OECD. Most results come from a sampling of scores from countries as a whole, but in China it was given in select regions. The Education Department’s National Center for Education Statistics

released the results. The test, given every three years to 15-year-olds, is designed to assess problem-solving skills. U.S. scores on the PISA haven’t changed much since testing started in 2000, even as students in countries like Ireland and Poland have shown improvement and surpassed U.S. students. Tom Loveless, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, cautions about reading too much into the results from Shanghai, which also dominated the test in 2009. The students tested are children of the elite. They are allowed to attend municipal schools because of restrictions such as those that keep many migrant children out, he said. But Jack Buckley, commissioner of the National Center for Education Statistics, said U.S. officials have not seen any evidence of a “biased sample” of students tested in Shanghai.

LAGOS, Nigeria – Entombed at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean in an upended tugboat for three days, Harrison Odjegba Okene begged God for a miracle. The Nigerian cook survived by breathing an ever-dwindling supply of oxygen in an air pocket. A video of his rescue in May that was posted on the Internet more than six months later went viral this week. As the temperature dropped to freezing, Okene, dressed only in boxer shorts, recited the last psalm his wife had sent by text message: “Oh God, by your name, save me. ... The Lord sustains my life.”

What do you think of the pension reform legislation? Tuesday’s results:

liverance. The other 11 seamen aboard the Jascon 4 died. Divers sent to the scene were looking only for bodies,

according to Tony Walker, project manager for the Dutch company DCN Diving. The divers, who were working on an oil field 75 miles away when they were deployed, already had pulled up four bodies. So when a hand appeared on the TV screen Walker was monitoring in the rescue boat, showing what the diver in the Jascon saw, everybody assumed it was another corpse. “The diver acknowledged that he had seen the hand and then, when he went to grab the hand, the hand grabbed him!” Walker said Tuesday. On the video, there’s an exclamation of fear and shock from the rescuer, and then joy as the realization sets in. Okene recalls hearing: “There’s a survivor! He’s alive.”

Audit calls health insurance p O e d n n i n a g r ! G subsidies vulnerable to fraud IRS systems may miss fake claims By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Government subsidies to help Americans buy insurance under the health care overhaul may be vulnerable to fraud, a Treasury Department watchdog warned on Tuesday in the latest indication that troubles are far from over for President Barack Obama’s signature legislation. The rollout of the law has been hurt by canceled policies and problems with the federal website used by people to enroll in health plans, causing political headaches for the White House and for Democrats in Congress. The new problems concern subsidies that are available to low- and medium-income people who buy insurance through statebased exchanges that opened in October. Those subsidies are admin-

istered by the Internal Revenue Service in the form of tax credits, and that’s where the trouble arises. “The IRS’ existing fraud detection system may not be capable of identifying [Affordable Care Act] refund fraud or schemes prior to the issuance of tax return refunds,” said the report by J. Russell George, the Treasury inspector general for tax administration. “The IRS reported that the long-term limitations of its existing fraud detection system include its inability to keep pace with increasing levels of fraud,” the report said. Sounding more upbeat, Acting IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel said, “The IRS has a strong, effective system in place for administering the Premium Tax Credit. We have a proven track record of safely and securely transmitting federal tax information and we have a robust and secure process in place to deliver this important credit for taxpayers.” The president had a sunnier view, too. Seeking to

regroup from the law’s disastrous rollout, Obama said Tuesday the government website is working well “for the vast majority of users.” He acknowledged that other problems will likely arise, but “when they do, we’ll fix those too.” Any problems with the health care tax credits probably won’t come to light until taxpayers file their 2014 tax returns in the spring of 2015. Most of the credits will be paid directly to health insurance companies, with taxpayers seeing the benefit in reduced premiums. Other taxpayers, however, can claim the credits on their federal tax returns, starting with 2014 returns. The inspector general’s report says the IRS did a good job of accurately calculating the amount of tax credits when auditors ran tests on the system before the health exchanges opened. However, the report warns that IRS systems may not be capable detecting schemes by people who fraudulently claim refunds.

How Illinois pension deal could affect retirees The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – Public employees could see significant reductions in long-term retirement income under a proposed bill that Illinois legislative leaders are pushing as a way to solve the worst-inthe-nation pension crisis. One of the biggest cuts would come from a change in annual cost-of-living adjust-

ments. The proposal would change the COLA increase from the current rate of 3 percent compounded annually on the full annuity benefit. Retirees instead would receive increases at that rate only up to a certain amount of annuity benefit. The Center for Tax and Budget Accountability has developed a formula to calculate estimated changes

in retirement income over the years if the bill passes, based on the best information available right now, pension specialist Amanda Kass said. Here are three scenarios:

20 years of retirement: $121,009

Cumulative 20-year decrease: $284,030

Cumulative 20-year decrease: $76,765

Employee 1

Employee 2

Employee 3

Who: Retired teacher, 30 years of service

Initial annual benefit: $67,000

Annual pension benefit after

a year under the current pension system; $91,183 under the proposed changes

Who: Retired Department of Children and Family Services caseworker, 25 years of service Initial annual benefit: $30,000

Annual pension benefit after 20 years of retirement: $54,183 under current system; $46,122 under proposed changes

Who: Retired teacher, age

would remain unchanged until benefit reaches $30,000, which is years of service multiplied by $1,000. After that, the annual benefit would drop below what it would be under the current system.

Annual pension benefit after 10 years: $33,598 under current system; $33,529 under proposed changes

75, with 30 years of service

Initial annual benefit: $25,000 Retiree’s COLA increase

Cumulative 10-year decrease: $137

Key details of decision over Ill. pension crisis The ASSOCIATED PRESS SPRINGFIELD – After years of inaction, Illinois lawmakers have approved a historic plan to finally close the gap on the state’s $100 billion public pension shortfall, which is considered the nation’s worst. The plan was unveiled last week by Democratic and Republican leaders in both the House and Senate, who said it will save the state $160 billion over 30 years, largely by cutting retirement benefits for state employees.

The predicament Illinois’ five public-employee retirement systems are a combined $100 billion short of what’s needed to pay benefits as promised to workers and retirees. The accounts contain about 40 percent of what they need to be considered fully funded. The shortfall is due largely to decades of legislators skipping or shorting the state’s pension payments – a practice that allowed them to spend that money elsewhere. Other causes include economic downturns, lower-than-projected market performance and beneficiaries living longer.

The impact The massive unfunded pension liability – along with the state’s other financial woes – has led credit rating agencies to repeatedly downgrade Illinois’ rating to the lowest of any state. That means when the state borrows money, taxpayers pay more in interest than people in other states. Illinois’ annual payments to the funds have grown, taking up about one-fifth of the state’s general funds budget – about $6 billion – this year. That’s money

that could be going to schools, roads or other areas.

The proposed solution Legislative leaders say the approved plan will reduce the unfunded liability by about $21 billion and fully fund the retirement systems by 2044. Among other things, it will: • Raise the retirement age for people 45 and younger, on a sliding scale basis. • Guarantee the state will make its full annual contribution to the funds and allow the systems to sue if the payments aren’t made. • Change the cost-of-living increase from the current rate of 3 percent, compounded annually, on the full annuity benefit. Retirees would receive increases at that rate only up to a certain amount of annuity benefit. Legislative leaders say the new structure would benefit lower-income workers who held their jobs longer. Employees also would miss some annual cost-of-living adjustments, depending on their age. • Cap the amount of salary on which a pension benefit is based. In 2013, that amount would be about $110,000. • Decrease the employees’ own contribution to their retirement funds by 1 percent. • Provide workers the option of participating in a 401(k)-style defined contribution plan.

will be compounded, but only off of a base salary of $1,000 for each year an employee works, plus the rate of inflation. The COLA will skip some years on a sliding scale based on state workers’ current age – employees at least 50 years old will only miss one increase, while those 43 and younger will miss five, spaced out every other year. The plan also raises the retirement ages for employees 45 years or younger by four months for each year an employee is younger than 46, for a maximum of five years, and imposes a cap on pensionable income on all employees. Workers get some concessions under the bill. They will pay 1 percent less into the pension systems, which will be able to sue the state should it not make its required payments. Years of repeated shorting of those payments, or not making them at all, is one of the primary causes of the current pension crisis. Sen. Linda Holmes, D-Aurora, reminded lawmakers of that fact during debate. She was part of the 10-member committee in charge of coming up with a reform bill, and the only one to vote against it.

“I think a lot of this problem stems from the fact that we actually didn’t do what we were obligated to and should have done,” Holmes said. Senate Bill 1 does not make changes to the retirement system for judges in an obvious attempt to improve the legislation’s chances of survival. When former Gov. Rod Blagojevich tried stripping judges of their 3 percent COLAs, they sued, got to hear their own case, and won. Public-sector unions, which bombarded lawmakers in the days prior to Tuesday’s session, lashed out after the vote and promised a court battle. They allege it runs afoul of language in the Illinois Constitution, which states pensions “shall not be diminished or impaired.” “This bill will rob working people of their life savings. It is unconstitutional, and so won’t save a dime,” Illinois Federation of Teachers President Dan Montgomery said after the vote. “Don’t be fooled by anyone who calls this a solution. All they have done is sent this fight for justice to the courts.” The politically sensitive nature of the important vote was evident in its very timing. It came the day after the filing deadline to run in the 2014 election, which gave

lawmakers an idea going into session of what competition they will face. It passed by the minimum number of Senate votes needed, and two more than is needed in the House. McHenry County’s lawmakers were split about evenly on the bill. Sens. Pam Althoff, R-McHenry, Karen McConnaughay, R-St. Charles, Rep. Barbara Wheeler, R-Crystal Lake, and Rep. Tim Schmitz, R-Batavia, voted yes. “By reining in our pension obligation, we will soon have more funding available for the critically important budget areas like education, services for Illinois’ most vulnerable and poorest citizens, unpaid bills and other state priorities. These are all budget areas that have been shortchanged for far too long,” Wheeler said. Voting no were Sen. Dan Duffy, R-Lake Barrington, and Reps. Jack Franks, D-Marengo, Mike Tryon, R-Crystal Lake, and David McSweeney, R-Barrington Hills. McSweeney, an investment specialist and former investment banker, said the savings numbers did not add up. He asked Madigan during the debate for an analysis by the state’s nonpartisan Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability, but Madigan said no.

“I couldn’t make the numbers work. They didn’t add up to me. If these numbers are wrong, then the entire bill is flawed,” McSweeney said. The bill is a political victory for Quinn, an unpopular governor in the polls who faces a tough re-election battle next year. Only one of the four main GOP gubernatorial candidates, Sen. Bill Brady, R-Bloomington, backed the reform. “The fact of the matter is we’re dealt the hand we have today and we have to act upon it,” Brady said. Fellow gubernatorial candidate Sen. Kirk Dillard, R-Hinsdale, voted against it, although his lieutenant governor candidate, Rep. Jil Tracy, R-Quincy, voted for it in the House. Treasurer Dan Rutherford, like Dillard, said the bill will not pass constitutional muster, and venture capitalist Bruce Rauner, whose campaign centers on playing tough with unions, called it inadequate. “Springfield politicians today voted to slap a small bandage on an open wound. While it may help them temporarily feel better, it does little to fix the real problems facing Illinois,” Rauner said in a statement.

New Common Core standards yield odd political allegiances By PHILIP ELLIOTT The Associated Press WASHINGTON – To say that new academic standards have yielded strange bedfellows would be an understatement. Republican-on-Republican infighting? Teacher unions linking arms with tea partyers? President Barack Obama working in tandem with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and energy giant Exxon? When it comes to Common Core, forget the old allegiances. Traditionally Democratic-leaning groups don’t like the standardized tests and are finding allies among small-government conservatives. The Obama adminis-

tration wants more students leaving high school ready for college courses or their first jobs, a goal shared by big corporations. “That wonderful old line [is] that the problem with national standards is: Republicans don’t do ‘national’ and Democrats don’t do ‘standards,’” said Mitch Daniels, the president of Purdue University and former Republican governor of Indiana. “So the Common Core kind of gets it from both ends a little bit.” The standards, adopted by 45 states and the District of Columbia, essentially exchanged state-by-state benchmarks for one uniform guide about what skills a student should have at each grade level. For instance: all third-graders should know how to find the perimeter of a

shape. How an educator at the front of a classroom teaches that is up to each school. The goals were based on international standards and tests, which on Tuesday again showed American students lagging behind many of their peers. Supporters said the updated standards would help the United States regain its footing, better prepare high school graduates for college or their first jobs, and help the U.S. economy be more competitive. But all of this was set in motion before the tea party rose to power. Once the small-government activists established a foothold in politics, they targeted the standards and forced lawmakers to choose between the business wing of the Republican Party and them.

8BRIEFS Union official says train engineer was drowsy

Patriarch urges release of 12 abducted nuns

YONKERS, N.Y. – The engineer whose speeding commuter train ran off the rails along a curve, killing four people, nodded off at the controls just before the wreck, and by the time he caught himself it was too late, a union official said Tuesday. William Rockefeller “basically nodded,” said Anthony Bottalico, leader of the rail employees union, relating what he said the engineer told him. Rockefeller’s lawyer did not return calls. During a late-afternoon news conference, federal investigators said they were still talking to Rockefeller, and they would not comment on his level of alertness around the time of the Sunday morning wreck in the Bronx.

DAMASCUS, Syria – Opposition fighters abducted 12 nuns from a Christian village overrun by rebels, Syria’s Greek Orthodox patriarch and the head of a convent said Tuesday, adding to fears that hard-line Muslim rebels trying to overthrow President Bashar Assad were increasingly targeting Christians. The nuns join two bishops and a priest who were previously kidnapped by rebels. Syria’s minorities, including Christians, have mostly sided with Assad or remained neutral in Syria’s civil war, fearing for their fate if the rebels, increasingly dominated by Islamic extremists, come to power. Christians have accused some rebels of abusing residents

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Frustrated by conditions in his cell, obsessed with the quality of prison food and convinced that guards were mistreating him, Cleveland kidnapper Ariel Castro committed suicide as the reality of living out his life in prison set in, two consultants concluded Tuesday. The two, considered national experts on prison conditions, rejected suggestions that the Sept. 3 death of the 53-yearold inmate may have been an accident while seeking a sexual thrill, as an earlier review by the state prisons agency suggested.

Next year, county must appoint new Metra Board representative • RTA BOARD Continued from page A1 as McHenry County Republican Party chairman between 1968 and 1998, and about three of those years as state chairman. Jourdan’s RTA term expired in April, but the appointment process has been delayed twice because of political turmoil at the mass-transit agencies. Chicago’s mass-transit agencies have come under serious scrutiny in recent years,

primarily over controversy and allegations of corruption and mismanagement at Metra, but also because of resignations at the RTA Board and whether it was negligent in its handling of the most recent Metra scandal involving the resignation of its previous chief executive. The CTA has come under fire over the numerous glitches that have plagued the rollout of the new Ventra fare card system. The County Board next year also will have to find a new representative for the

Metra Board – current representative Jack Schaffer said he will not seek reappointment to another four-year term. Hobson’s appointment was one of nine made Tuesday to five boards and commissions. County Board members also appointed newcomer Diane Wasilk and incumbent Connee Meschini to the McHenry County Mental Health Board, which has undergone significant change in the wake of a County Board committee shakeup and ongoing fiscal woes.

Pension funds said to be $3.5B short • DETROIT Continued from page A1 must be prepared to defend any deep reductions. “This once proud and prosperous city can’t pay its debts. It’s insolvent,” Rhodes said in formally granting Detroit the largest public bankruptcy in U.S. history. “At the same time, it also has an opportunity for a fresh start.” The ruling came more than four months after Detroit filed for Chapter 9 protection. Rhodes agreed with unions and pension funds that the city’s emergency manager, Kevyn Orr, had not negotiated in good faith in the weeks ahead of the July filing, a key condition under federal law. But he said the number of creditors – more than 100,000 – and array of competing interests made that “impossible.” Detroit “could have and should have filed for bankruptcy long before it did. Perhaps years,” the judge said. The decision set the stage for officials to confront $18 billion in debt with a plan that

“[Detroit] could have and should have filed for bankruptcy long before it did. Perhaps years.” Judge Steven Rhodes might pay creditors just pennies on the dollar and is sure to include touchy negotiations over the pensions of about 23,000 retirees and 9,000 workers. Orr says pension funds are short by $3.5 billion. Rhodes promised that he would not “lightly or casually” sign off on just any cuts. The city has argued that bankruptcy protection will allow it to help beleaguered residents who for years have tolerated slow police responses, darkened streetlights and erratic garbage pickup – a concern mentioned by the judge during a nine-day trial that ended Nov. 8. Before the July filing, nearly 40 cents of every dollar collected by Detroit was used to pay debt, a figure that could rise to 65 cents without relief

through bankruptcy, according to the city. Orr praised the judge’s ruling and pledged to “press ahead.” He also acknowledged that pensions would be a sensitive issue because they represent a “human dimension” to the crisis, with some retirees getting by on less than $20,000 a year. City truck mechanic Mark Clark, 53, said he may look for another job after absorbing pay cuts and higher health care costs. Now a smaller pension looms. “Most of us didn’t have too much faith in the court. ... The working class is becoming the have-nots,” Clark said outside the courthouse. “I’m broke up and beat up. I’m going to pray a whole lot.” Marcia Ingram, a retired clerical worker, said she may need to find work but added: “How many folks are going to hire a 60-year-old woman?” Behind closed doors, mediators led by another judge have been meeting with Orr’s team and creditors for weeks to explore possible settlements.

Let’s plan for bicentennial Illinois observed its 195th birthday Tuesday. It was officially admitted to the union Dec. 3, 1818. How will Illinois celebrate the big 2-0-0? It’s certainly time to start thinking about it. We encourage state government, historical groups and county governments to consider ideas and pursue plans now to ensure a successful Illinois Bicentennial in 2018. In 1968, the 24-member Illinois Sesquicentennial Commission, established by the Illinois General Assembly, rode herd on the state’s various observances of its 150th birthday. An official logo was created, as was a sesquicentennial flag. A commemorative medallion was designed, struck and sold, with profits designated toward paying for sesquicentennial expenses. Books and pamphlets about the state’s history were written. Counties were encouraged to write and publish their own histories, and many did. Various special events were planned in honor of Illinois’ 150 years as a state. Since 1968, Ronald Reagan, who was born in Tampico, and Barack Obama, a Chicagoan, were elected president. The state’s industrial and agricultural economies have changed dramatically. Chicago has exerted greater economic and political influence, even as population has shifted to the suburbs. Rural growth has stalled. State government’s finances, unfortunately, are anything but strong. With former Governors Otto Kerner (196168), Dan Walker (1977-81), George Ryan (19992003), and Rod Blagojevich (2003-09) sentenced to prison for various misdeeds, Illinois is saddled with a legacy of political corruption that will take years to live down. But if we can learn from our history, perhaps we won’t be doomed to repeat it. And, perhaps, the state’s 200th birthday could be the impetus to create a statewide blueprint for growth. Gov. Frank Lowden was in office when Illinois observed its centennial in 1918. The governor whom Illinoisans elect next year will be in office during bicentennial year. The powers that be should not drag their feet on bicentennial planning. We encourage them to come up with a dependable funding formula. We recall that in 2009, Illinois’ celebration of the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial was partially muted because of budget cuts by Gov. Blagojevich. We encourage area county officials to start thinking about their roles. Done well, a bicentennial celebration could be a welcome shot in the arm as Illinois enters its third century.

Phones should remain off Commercial airlines have been the last refuge from the ubiquity of cellphone chatter and text messages that just can’t wait. Call us Luddites of the worst sort, but we hope it stays that way. The Federal Communications Communication on Dec. 12 will consider whether to lift a more than two-decade ban on cellphone calls in flight (calls still would be prohibited during landing and takeoff). Playing Angry Birds or reading a novel while airborne is one thing. A Boeing 767 loaded with 300-odd people jabbering on cellphones or clicking out texts with their thumbs is another. Luddites or not, a lot of people are making the point that just because something is safe doesn’t mean it’s desirable. The Gadsden (Ala.) Times

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Health care snafu To the Editor: So many are focusing on the known problems (too many to enumerate in this venue) on this health care website development. We also need to anticipate there will be other discoveries as this is reviewed, recoded and tested. I have two simple questions as an American taxpayer that paid a Canadian company and its affiliates over $634 million for this massive failure: • When will this Canadian company and its affiliates refund a large portion of the money they were paid since this does not work? • Will this Canadian company also reimburse taxpayers the costs for those companies hired to fix this problem? As of this writing, the bill to implement this website will exceed $1 billion. That combines the original charges plus the cost to fix. Again, when do we taxpayers receive our refund for the original, nonworking portion? Frank Musial McHenry

Insight on suicide To the Editor: I have just finished reading the article on suicide. I do have insight. My younger sister was ill all of her life. But it was a controllable illness. She never took care of herself. She was and still is the poorest soul I have ever known. She died

just before her 40th birthday – a massive heart attack. It could have been avoided. She felt unloved, unwanted and uncared for. I miss her still. She died in 2001. I have tried to take my own life twice. Obviously, I did not succeed. I suffer severe depression. I am on meds, but, more often than not, they don’t work. To all those who have lost a loved one to mysteries, I don’t know if this helps, but life in our hearts, minds and our souls is what we wish it to be. Forgiveness and knowing we hide it well, hopefully, will comfort and help heal. You have done nothing wrong. You loved them well. Donna Sinski Crystal Lake

ACA core conservative To the Editor: The heart of the Affordable Care Act is based on conservative principles that were promoted by some Republicans in the early 1990s as a free market alternative to the onerous “Clintoncare” proposal. It had been road-tested in one state, Massachusetts, as a bipartisan agreement between the Democratic Legislature and Republican governor (Mitt Romney). Unfortunately, the Washington Democratic Party bureaucrats were not content to implement the original concept to expand

coverage using the free enterprise system. They irresponsibly packed it with far too many additional provisions, leading to Nancy Pelosi’s infamous statement that ACA would need to be passed before we could know everything that was in it. I anticipated “glitches” in the healthcare.gov website rollout, but not the disaster that has occurred. The Obama administration had over three years to prepare; their incompetence is staggering. Fortunately, the website eventually will be fixed, and people eventually will enroll in compliant plans. Fortunately, ACA is not socialized medicine and is not the liberal pipe dream of single payer (“Medicare for everyone”). The core of ACA is a noble, conservative attempt to reach universal health care while preserving the private health care insurance industry. Reality check: This didn’t change from a good idea 20 years ago to a bad idea now just because Obama got behind it. Let’s not throw the baby out with the bath water by attempting to scuttle or

Poor picture choice To the Editor: I am saddened and appalled by the deplorable deer photos published on pages A1 and A8 of the Nov. 25 Northwest Herald. I do understand the printing and purpose of the article, “On the Hunt,” which informs readers of deer hunting seasons and of how controlling the deer population helps to limit the spread of disease, crop damage, etc. I do not feel the two gruesome photos in question are necessary to illustrate the above-mentioned facts of the article in any way. Mr. Editor, perhaps you should look at these excruciating and undignified photos of God’s creatures and see how it makes you feel. Theresa H. Smith Crystal Lake

Black Friday incidents latest in string illustrating cultural decay “If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there’d be peace.” – John Lennon Black Friday was a metaphor beyond the merchants’ bottom line. Headlines on last Friday’s Drudge Report reflect a culture that is being trampled by the greed and me-only attitude of a growing number of us: • “Mall mayhem ... • Suspected shoplifter shot after dragging cop through Kohl’s parking lot ... • Brawls. ... Man stabbed over parking spot ... • Shopper Kicked Out Of Walmart For Filming Fight ... • Man shot walking home with big screen ... • Shoppers Trampled in Race for $49 Tablet ... • Salvation Army kettles stolen ... • Woman pulls stun gun in argument over Walmart shopping cart.” Once such stories seemed isolated, even bizarre. In the era of

flash mobs and a growing entitlement mentality fueled by politicians and “income inequality” alarmists, these far too frequent instances now seem to be symptomatic of a decaying culture. Like those with symptoms of illness who refuse to see a doctor, ignoring this pestilence that is destroying our foundations ensures it will get worse. These incidents are the result of a nation that has ceased to impose – yes, impose – the old values that served previous generations well. The dark night is rising, and it isn’t a Batman movie. The latest, but probably not the last, expression of what I mean is what used to be called assault and battery, but now is labeled the “knockout game” in which mostly young men see if they can randomly knock another person unconscious with a single punch. People and nations must be ruled

VIEWS Cal Thomas by something, or there is anarchy. Either it is God, or secular laws that control our lower nature. Today, we are out of control as we pursue happiness through prosperity in the false hope money and things will satisfy. The problem with prosperity is that one is never satisfied. As the ancient writer said, “Whoever loves money never has money enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income.” (Ecclesiastes 5:10) Who today is satisfied with their income and circumstances? In my neighborhood, there are old houses built during World War II, and at that time they sold for well under $20,000. One of these houses is

8THE FIRST AMENDMENT

on sale for more than $1 million. Far larger and more expensive homes stand on lots where smaller and cheaper homes once stood. These new homes are called “tear-down houses.” How many regard these larger houses as steppingstones to an even-bigger next house? What is the purpose, other than ego fulfillment? The estate sale is the end of it all. If things satisfied, wouldn’t Americans be the most satisfied people on Earth? We have more stuff than any generation before ours. The overflow we deposit in rented public storage units. The stock market is up substantially, but we want it to go higher with no bursting bubble this time. Then what? What will we do with more? Will tomorrow’s more satisfy when today’s more hasn’t? Previous generations had less and yet seemed to have more of what matters: more character; more

virtue; more contentment, all of it reinforced by parents, clergy and, for the most part, culture. In our day, materialism has become a false god we worship in the vain hope it will bring peace. In our conspicuous consumption we are self-immolating, and the fuel is materialism. Writer Jess C. Scott has said, “If money’s the god people worship, I’d rather go worship the devil instead.” Given the behavior of so many on Black Friday and other examples of cultural decay and national decline, many of us seem to be doing just that. Israel’s King David warned, “The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men.” (Psalm 12:8). Can’t say we haven’t been warned. • Readers may email Cal Thomas at tcaeditors@tribune.com.

MAN CONVICTED ON DRUG CHARGE ST. CHARLES – It took a Kane County jury 30 minutes Tuesday to convict a West Dundee man on a drug charge. Timothy S. Newberry, 51, has a laundry list of prior offenses. He was found guilty of one count of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance stemming from an arrest in May. He could be sentenced to between two and 10 years in prison on the Class 3 felony. He will be sentenced Feb. 21. According to a news release from the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office, Newberry on May 28, arranged to sell four alprazolam pills for $45 to an undercover officer outside a business in the 200 block of West Main Street, Carpentersville. At the time of the transaction, Newberry told the officer he could obtain additional alprazolam pills for a future transaction. Alprazolam is more commonly known as Xanax. Newberry has 11 previous convictions dating to the early 1980s. Most are drug-related. Newberry had been in custody at the Kane County Jail since his arrest.

County sues over easements Accuses Nunda highway department of ordinance violations By JEFF ENGELHARDT jengelhardt@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – McHenry County has filed a lawsuit against Nunda Township Highway Department after its commissioner Mike Lesperance failed to act on written warnings of potential or-

dinance violations. The lawsuit – filed on Nov. 21 – says the township highway department violated two county ordinances when it worked on a culvert and diverted stormwater runoff without obtaining the proper county permits over the summer. The county says the

highway department developed in a flood-prone area without a permit and changed the direction of stormwater runoff without a permit. Under the ordinance, the township could face fines ranging from $750 to $1,500 for each day it is in violation of the ordinance if

the court rules against the highway department. The McHenry County Stormwater Management division took notice of the issue after township resident Douglas Mann was concerned the township’s work

NORTHWEST HERALD McHENRY – Police are searching for a medium-built, white male who attempted to rob the First National Bank of McHenry along Route 31 early Tuesday afternoon. McHenry police said the male, between 5-foot9 and 5-foot-11, wore dark blue or black pants, a black jacket with a white or gray hooded sweatshirt underneath, a black hat, white shoes, sunglasses and a red bandanna over his face when he entered the bank

around 12:15 p.m. He approached the teller counter, brandished what appeared to be a handgun and left the bank without taking any money, police said in a news release. The offender then fled from the bank, 612 S. Route 31, on foot. No one was injured in the incident, police said. The robbery investigation is ongoing, and a suspect has yet to be identified. Anyone with information about the incident are asked to call McHenry police’s criminal investigation division at 815-3632599, or the anonymous tip line at 815-363-2124.

CARY – Village Board members on Tuesday decided to freeze its property tax levy and opted not to take an additional $52,000 it legally can receive. The property tax levy will be $2.45 million, which is the same amount the village collected this year. Village staff had proposed increasing the levy to $2.5 million, which it would be allowed under the tax cap law. Michael DuCharme of Lauterbach and Amen, the village’s financial consulting firm, recommended increasing the levy to help pay for increased po-

MCHENRY: TWO VARIANCES OK’D

Northwest Herald / NWHerald.com

Home expansion receives another round of approval By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com McHENRY – A proposed residential expansion that raised questions on how and when to protect historic neighborhoods cleared another hurdle Monday evening. In a 5-2 vote, the McHenry City Council approved two of the three variances McHenry residents Jeff and Jamie Grubich had requested. The third variance – for a third driveway entrance – must go before the McHenry Planning and Zoning Commission before it comes before the council. The Grubichs hope to demolish the home at 3208 Golfview Terrace and expand their 2,921-square-foot home at 3214 Golfview Terrace onto the lot, according to plans submitted to the city. The expansion will add an additional 7,943 square feet to the home. Questions have been raised over whether the expanded home will fit into the surrounding Country Club subdivision, which dates to the early 1920s. Other subdivision residents also have asked whether it will affect water runoff from the property. The project is the first to trigger the city’s residential teardown and infill ordinance, which was created in 2005 not long before the hous-

ing market crash. The Grubichs received variances from two of the ordinance’s provisions Monday evening, including a 60-day waiting period for the demolition and a requirement that the side yard setbacks be increased proportionally with the added width of the lot. While the Grubichs’ residential zoning normally would require minimum side yard setbacks of 6 feet, under the teardown ordinance, the setback would need to be increased to 19.1 feet. Alderman Victor Santi, whose ward includes the Grubichs’ home so he sat on the teardown committee for this item, said he was “comfortable with the variances.” Alderwoman Geri Condon, who, along with Alderman Andy Glab, voted against the project, was a part of the committee that drafted the original ordinance. “When we discussed that years ago, it was because of the exact reason that has been brought up, keeping homes in relative size,” Condon said. “That’s why we put it there. We didn’t want homes out of the character of that community.” The Community Development Committee will be reviewing the ordinance and associated design guidelines next year in light of its implementation, Condon said.

HARVARD: 6-1 VOTE

Council passes levy hike of 4.9 percent By SHAWN SHINNEMAN sshinneman@shawmedia.com HARVARD – The city council has passed a 4.9 percent increase to Harvard’s total tax levy. The $2.48 million levy was approved by a 6-1 vote late last month. “Because of the dropping in the Equalized Assessed Value of the community’s property values and because we’re capped under law on our tax rates, it is my opinion we’ll get about the same as we got

last year, or maybe even less,” City Administrator Dave Nelson said. One year ago, the city levied $2.47 million, a 4.9 percent increase, and was extended $2.36 million after adjustments. Harvard homeowners currently pay $2 in taxes per $100 in equalized assessed value to the city. The city portion accounts for about 16 percent of Harvard residents’ property tax bills. The same levy originally had appeared on the council’s late-October agenda, but offi-

cials decided then to send it back to committee. Councilman Mike Clarke was the lone no-vote when it came back up on Nov. 26. He said that even though the city is expecting a similar extension as a year ago, he didn’t want to risk a jump in residents’ taxes. “With rising property taxes and declining home values, I just can’t justify even raising property taxes by the smallest margin,” Clarke said. Clarke also no-voted the raise last year. He said that property taxes – among the

top priorities of community members he hears from – are in some ways out of the city’s control because of state factors, among them a broken pension system. But he wants to see further attempts to decrease costs within the city, potentially by cutting funding to the parks and pools budgets. “When you put those up against programs like the streets and sewer and water and police, those are the dayto-day essentials of running a city,” he said.

Q: Why are the courts crowded in the days before Christmas with parents seeking court orders for Christmas visitation? A: As a secular matter Christmas is a children’s holiday. Christmas is the time for family gathering, the time for gifts, and largely gifts for children. A well drafted marital settlement agreement, or divorce judgment, should specify the division of the days of the Christmas holiday between the divorced parents, or the non-marital parents. Sometimes the visitation provision in the marital settlement agreement, or judgment, does not specifically address the Christmas holiday, so it is up in the air. Also during the pendency of a divorce and custody proceeding (before final judgment) there will usually be a temporary custody and visitation order in place, however, often it does not address Christmas visitation. For these reasons judges are inundated with applications for Christmas visitation

orders. Now is the time to talk to your lawyer about a Christmas visitation court order if you believe it could be a problem. Q: What type of Christmas visitation order do you recommend? A: Most families have a tradition of celebrating the holiday and opening gifts either on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. The gift opening should be whenever the extended families of the mother and father open gifts. If the celebration for each family is at different times, each parent should have visitation at their family’s chosen time. If both families celebrate at the same time, for example, on Christmas Eve, then the parents should have the children on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in alternating years. Q: What about the balance of the Christmas holiday? A: Usually it is equally divided between the parents. Q: Where should the children be overnight on Christmas Eve? A: For small children the opening of gifts is exciting and the child will usually stay up past bedtime. It is not good for the child, when the child has already been awake past bedtime, to transport the child for visitation. The better plan is for the child to stay in the same place

overnight and begin Christmas Day visitation with the other parent early on Christmas Day. Q: What about Christmas church services? A: The plans made for dividing the Christmas holidays should respect the family traditions of attending Christmas church services, but it should not result in one parent having the children both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day morning unless the parents agree. Q: If the parents cannot agree on Christmas visitation, on what basis will the judge decide? A: As a matter of law all decisions relating to visitation and custody must be based on what is in the best interest of the child. As a practical matter judges will usually respect the family traditions there have been in regard to Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Q: Is there a need for a court order regarding Christmas visitation? A: Unless you and the other parent get along extraordinarily well (in which case you probably should not have been divorced, or split) a court order is necessary. You usually cannot enforce visitation based on an agreement between the parents. Only court ordered visitation is enforceable. If you need a court order, you should alert your lawyer now.

Gifts Describe some wonderful gifts that money can’t buy. There are many gifts that you can give that money can’t buy. First, you can make a gift with lots of love. You could make a piece of jewelry, an ornament, or a home cooked meal! You could create a beautiful card to give with your present. Plus you could clean the house or yard as a gift too. Which one would you do? Jimena, 4th grade I think you can’t buy warts, or a mustache, and you can’t buy laughter and happiness! Melina, 3rd grade

goals to: Northwest Herald P.O. Box 250 Crystal Lake, IL 60039

Please include your school and grade.

One gift you wouldn’t need to buy is a card because, if you make it, it will make your parents or relatives happy.Also, you can make breakfast in bed so your parents do not have to get up and make breakfast for you. Melissa, 1st grade There are many great gifts that don’t cost money, and you don’t have to wait for a special occasion to give them. Surprise someone with the gift of a smile, a hug, or a nice compliment. Open a door for someone, or let someone go ahead of you in line. Surprise your mom by cleaning your room. Say, “I love you” to someone that is very special to you. These are wonderful gifts that money just can’t buy. Yanell, 5th grade I think the perfect gift is a massage for your mom and mowing the lawn for your dad. Christian, 3rd grade

There are a lot of gifts that don’t cost money. You can make something that comes from your heart. You can give a gift that doesn’t cost money like bracelets, necklaces, cards, and more. Lizet, 2nd grade If I have to give a gift that doesn’t cost money, I would give them a painting for their birthday because it will be special for them and they could keep it forever inside their room or in a living room. Gaby, 3rd grade If I were to make a gift for someone, I would make a gift for my mom because she does a lot of work and cooking for my family, so I think she deserves it. I would make her dinner, lunch and breakfast for a week and I would pick her a bouquet of flowers. Hannah, 5th grade

There are many gifts that you can give without spending money. First, you can get white paper, fold it into half, then decorate it, write happy stuff, and then give it to someone.You can also make a beautiful necklance with yarn at your home and pick a flower. Plus you can also clean the house, your room or the yard as a gift too. Cory, 6th grade For me friendship, love, patience, kindness and giving are all gifts that money cannot buy. Friendship is that you make friends and you are nice to them. Love is when you love someone. Patience is when you don t want to wait but you do it anyway. Kindness is when someone is hurt and you help them. Giving is when you give something away. I think all gifts are blessings. Victory, 2nd grade

MCHENRY COUNTY: ROSKAM FACES CHALLENGE

Mason announces run for 6th Congressional District By AL LAGATTOLLA alagattolla@shawmedia.com A Naperville Democrat has announced he will take on U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Wheaton, in the race for the 6th Congressional District. Naperville resident Michael Mason, 60, criticized Roskam, the chief deputy whip, saying

residents are “waiting for him to do something about job creation. We’re waiting for him to work for us instead of the special interests that fund his campaigns and pay for his junkets. … We’re tired of waiting for Peter Roskam.” Roskam’s representatives were offered a chance to respond to Mason’s comments but had not yet done so as of Tuesday eve-

8LOCAL BRIEFS Cary holiday walk and tree lighting set Saturday

McHENRY – Downtown parking pass holders now can purchase passes annually instead of quarterly, the City Council decided Monday evening. The cost for the passes will remain $60 a year. The change was made at the request of pass holders who are predominately downtown residents, business owners and employees who use the lots on Main Street, Court Street, Green Street and Riverside Drive, according to city documents. For those who purchase a pass after July 1, the cost will be prorated to $30. It will not be prorated any further, which is how the city handles vehicle stickers. The goal is to make the process less cumbersome for pass holders and make it more streamlined for city staff, the documents said.

CARY – The Jaycee Park Holiday Walk and Tree Lighting is scheduled 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday on Silver Lake Road at Cary-Algonquin Road, Cary. People will be able to view holiday lights on trees decorated by families and groups in the community. Santa Claus and reindeer will be at the free event. Refreshments will be available, according to a Cary Park District news release. For information, call the park district at 847-639-6100 or visit www.carypark.com.

American Legion to host spaghetti dinner LAKE IN THE HILLS – The Son’s of the American Legion Squadron 1231 will host a spaghetti with meatballs dinner from 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday at 1101 W. Algonquin Road. The dinner, which is open to the public, will cost $8 for adults and $6 for children.

said Roskam “just hasn’t done” what constituents want. He said his background as the retired manager of the Great Lakes Area Distribution/Networks Office for the U.S. Postal Service would help prepare him for the job. He said he improved the efficiency of large, complex systems. He said he never has run for an

office, but said “it just seemed like now is a good time for me to get more involved.” Mason said it’s time for people to work “across the aisles.” In a news release, Mason pointed out that as the chief deputy whip, Roskam “is charged with ensuring that all House Republicans vote to support the GOP leadership’s agenda.”

NIU gear sales up ahead of MAC title game By ANDREA AZZO aazzo@shawmedia.com DeKALB – Northern Illinois University alumnus Pete Lonsway is ready for the football team’s Mid-American Conference championship game Friday. The 1964 graduate, a former offensive tackle for the Huskies, was at the Village Commons Bookstore on Monday purchasing three sweatshirts for himself and his two brothers in preparation for the game in Detroit. Lonsway is one of many who have been purchasing NIU football merchandise lately, largely because of the undefeated football team. “My brothers and I are all football fanatics,” Lonsway said. “This being my alma mater, I just felt I had to [support the team].” The Huskies would essentially clinch a berth in a Bowl Championship Series game – most likely the Fiesta Bowl – with a MAC title victory Friday against Bowling Green. Quarterback Jordan Lynch also could cement a trip to New York City for the Heisman Trophy ceremony with another solid performance. Jody Boardman, manager of the bookstore, said they have been receiving online orders from all over the country.

Northern Illinois University nursing student Claire Desrosiers looks over some NIU T-shirts on Tuesday at the Village Commons Bookstore in DeKalb. They even sold out of jerseys; Boardman said they would receive the next shipment next week. “Everyone wants a Lynch jersey,” she said. “He’s the most popular player.” The University Bookstore in DeKalb has been busy, too. Manager Don Turk said sales are up 15 percent to 20 percent from this time last year. Last weekend, the bookstore received 48 orders during a time when they normally receive 15 to 20 orders. Turk attributes the increased sales to increased expectations for the Huskies: Fans are expecting NIU’s football team to perform well,

while last year it was rather unexpected for some. “Anytime you have renewed success, you get casual fans,” Turk said. Licensing Resource Group is offering two free tickets to the MAC championship game to those who purchase $30 or more of merchandise at The University Bookstore while supplies last, Turk said. Small things also can have a big influence on sales. Sometimes, sales depend on what players themselves are wearing. Lynch was seen wearing a camouflage hat on the sidelines during one game, and by the next Monday, the University Bookstore

received a dozen orders for the hat, Turk said. The hat remains the most popular one in the store, Turk said. NIU sophomore Jeff Nelson was buying an NIU shirt Monday at the Village Commons Bookstore. A first-year NIU student, Nelson said he was buying the shirt to support the school and the football team. “They’re amazing,” he said. “It makes me feel more like I’m part of it, because it’s my school.” Customers also are showing their support at big chain stores such as Target. Dave Keir, leader on duty at Target, said the store’s biggest sales take place during homecoming weekend and at the beginning of the season. NIU merchandise accounts for less than one percent of monthly sales, Keir said. “During homecoming weekend, it seemed like everybody was buying NIU apparel,” Keir said. “I wish we sold more.” NIU senior John Paul Payne was looking at the merchandise the Village Commons Bookstore had in stock Monday. He said he is planning on going to the BCS bowl game if NIU is selected. The full bowl lineup will be announced Sunday evening.

MCHENRY TOWNSHIP: FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT

Blood drives upcoming in Harvard, Hebron

Board calls for internal assessment of facilities Chief will look into need for 6th station By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com McHENRY – With land for a fifth station purchased and expansion plans for the main station on hold, the McHenry Township Fire Protection District is putting together a game plan. The district’s board of trustees originally had thought about hiring an outside firm to develop a strategic facilities plan, but when a mix-up meant the interested firms would have had to resubmit their qualifications,

the board decided to put the process on hold. At its last meeting, the board directed Fire Chief Tony Huemann to conduct an internal assessment first. The goal is to find answers to some of the district’s big questions, Huemann said. The district bought property off Route 31 across from the Shah Center earlier this year for a proposed fifth station, but the board still needs to decide when it should build. Huemann also will look into whether a sixth station is needed. Plans to expand the administrative portion of the district’s main station on Elm

Fans were required to bring a toy or a canned good in exchange for a free autograph from Bennett. The proceeds benefited Toys for Tots and McHenry County food pantries, as part of the Northwest Herald’s 23rd annual holiday charity drive. Sage YMCA and the Rita Corporation also helped sponsor this year’s event. Some Bears fans even started lining the basketball gym inside the YMCA four hours before the event began. Crystal Lake resident Del Repinski, donning a throwback Mike Singletary jersey, was the first in line to meet Bennett. “I’m a die-hard Bears fan,” Repinski said after his fourhour wait. He came with canned goods and left with an autographed playing card of Bennett. The signed memorabilia works toward a greater cause, Bennett said. “Anytime you can do something to help get a kid a toy, that’s the best possible thing you can do,” he said.

would cause more flooding on his property and proper engineering studies were not done. Mann, who lives on 3007 Garden Lane in Crystal Lake, said flooding issues arose from the June 26 storms when easements on the north and south side of Running Iron Drive were overwhelmed and caused damage to some property on the east side of Garden Lane. Although Mann said that issue is important to fix, he said Lesperance’s decision to divert the flow from the easement on the north side of Running Iron Drive to the one on the south side would result in all floodwater pounding his property and only transfer the problem. Dan Kegl and David Mellem, with the McHenry County State’s Attorney Office, said they could not comment in detail as the case is still active. Lesperance did not immediately return a message for comment. The first court date is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Dec. 16 at the McHenry County Courthouse.

BOYS BASKETBALL: PRAIRIE RIDGE 53 HAMPSHIRE 45

PRAIRIE RIDGE 44, CRYSTAL LAKE SOUTH 38

Wolves won’t give in

Wolves figure out Whip-Purs

PR holds off CL South in Valley opener

By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – Prairie Ridge spent the first three quarters building leads up to six points only to have Hampshire come right back and tie or cut the lead to one point. By the fourth quarter, the Wolves had had enough of that. Coming off a six-point, eight-turnover third quarter, Prairie Ridge figured things out. “We tried to attack them more and get into the middle and drive the lane,” Wolves guard Michael Bradshaw said. “We got to the [freethrow] line and that got us in a rhythm.” Prairie Ridge pushed the margin to as many as 10 points and held off the Whip-Purs, 5345, in their Fox Valley Conference crossover boys basketball game Tuesday night. “We ran better offense [in the fourth quarter],” Wolves coach Corky Card said. “We were moving the ball and driving a little bit more. We’re a very good free-throw shooting team when we get to the line.” Prairie Ridge (3-2) got 17 points from Bradshaw and 13 from sophomore guard Payton Otto. “In the first half, we took some really quick shots and we didn’t want to do that,” Otto said. “We moved the ball around more and drove to the hole more. We got a little lead and it worked out for us.” The Wolves made 9 of 12 free throws in the fourth quarter, with forward Steve Ticknor hitting all four of his attempts.

By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO mmontemurro@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – The Prairie Ridge girls basketball team had been in this position before. A season ago, the Wolves had opportunities to pull out a win after going into the second half with a lead, but late collapses, including one against Crystal Lake South, often thwarted them. This time against the Gators, Prairie Ridge was determined to not let that happen. The Wolves built a sevenpoint halftime lead and withstood a fourth-quarter comeback attempt by South for a 44-38 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division win at South’s Gator Alley. The Gators (3-4, 0-1 FVC Valley) had no answer for Prairie Ridge center Maddie Drain. The 6-foot-3 senior scored a gamehigh 26 points on 12-of-16 shooting with 12 rebounds. “It just shows how hard we’re working, and we’re a different team from last year,” Drain said. “I think other teams are going to recognize that and they’re going to know we’re a force to be reckoned with.” The Wolves (3-3, 1-0) used a box-and-1 defense most of the game to contain South’s best 3-point shooter, senior guard Rachel Rasmussen. They managed to limit her to three points, although sophomore guard Chanel Fanter delivered muchneeded scoring for South. Fanter scored a team-high 18 points with three 3-pointers. Senior forward Sara Mickow added six points and grabbed 11 rebounds for the Gators. “This group, they stuck together,” Wolves coach Rob Baker said. “We’ve been down this road before with South. This year we had seniors who said, ‘Guys, they’re coming back.’ And they did and we stuck together.”

Bears’ Bennett a kid a heart

Kyle Grillot – kgrillot@shawmedia.com

Milton Chopa, 11, of McHenry looks at his newly autographed winter coat signed by Bears tight end Martellus Bennett on Tuesday at Sage YMCA in Crystal Lake. Fans who brought an unwrapped new toy or nonperishable food item to benefit Toys for Tots and McHenry County food pantries received Bennett’s autograph.

CRYSTAL LAKE – Mason Erickson is 8 years old. He’s in third grade at Martin Elementary School in Huntley. His older sister’s name is Maddie. On Tuesday night, Erickson made a new friend. His name is Martellus Bennett, and he plays tight end for the Bears. “He’s a little bit crazy,” Erickson said with a giggle. Yes, he is. A lot bit crazy, to be exact. During his day off from practice, Bennett spent two hours signing autographs at the Sage YMCA as part of an event to benefit Toys for Tots and Cans for Christmas. In between clutching Sharpie markers to design hundreds of smiley-face signatures, he told jokes, drew pictures, freestyle rapped and dispensed wisdom to his youngest fans. It went something like this. • Mason, the happy 8-year-old from Huntley, earned an extra autograph from Bennett on one condition. He agreed to read at least one book a month.

BEARS INSIDER Tom Musick “ONE BOOK A MONTH,” Bennett wrote beneath his signature on Erickson’s jacket. • Darius Lee, a 9-year-old from Cary, wore a smile as big as a football field as Bennett conducted a cheer on his behalf. “Everybody tell Darius, ‘Merry Christmas!’ ” Bennett shouted to a crowded gymnasium. “MERRY CHRISTMAS!” screamed a room full of strangers. “It’s awesome,” Darius said. “He’s really fun, and he’s exciting to meet.” • Alexandra Adrowski, an 8-yearold from Crystal Lake, grinned as Bennett greeted her. “You’re pretty,” Bennett said. “I’m pretty, too, so I know pretty people when I see them.” Before long, the NFL veteran was quizzing his young friend for book recommendations. She suggested

“Miss Daisy Is Crazy.” He scribbled down the title so he wouldn’t forget. “He’s funny,” Alexandra said as she left the gym with her older brother, Chris. • Speaking of books, 10-year-old Ashlee Palmquist of Cary brought one of hers for Bennett to sign. It was titled “The Pet War,” a story about dogs versus cats. Ashlee has cats, but she likes dogs, too. “DOGS RULE,” Bennett inscribed before signing his name. “KEEP READING.” “He’s really fun,” Ashlee said. • Elizabeth Fischer, an 11-year-old from Lake in the Hills, had a special request. Could Bennett sign her hat with his nickname, “Black Unicorn”? “For you, I can,” Bennett said. Elizabeth held the hat tight as she left with her family. • Conor Naughton, a 5-year-old from Crystal Lake, plopped his right arm on the table in front of Bennett.

STARS 4, BLACKHAWKS 3

Hawks’ comeback for naught Stars blow 3-0 lead, still pull out win

Next for the Hawks Hawks at Minnesota, 7 p.m. Thursday, CSN, AM-720

By HERB GOULD hgould@suntimes.com Everybody was talking about a trap game. For the Blackhawks, it was more like half a trap. But it wasn’t better than none. The theory: With the Hawks coming home after a terrific 6-1 performance on their annual circus trip – the possibility of a letdown loomed large. It’s only human nature to exhale after piling up all those road wins. The reality: Give a big assist to Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen, who stopped 47 shots. But know that the Hawks’ six-game winning streak is over. The Stars took care of that, beating the defending Stanley Cup champions 4-3 before 21,411 at the United Center. “It’s nice to be home from

that long road trip,’’ defenseman Duncan Keith said. “But sometimes there’s a letdown. We can’t let that happen. We were guilty of that tonight. We got our energy going in the second. But for whatever reason, it wasn’t our best game.’’ The sub-par start was critical. Down 3-0, the Hawks erupted for three goals in the final 10 minutes of the second period to tie the game 3-3 heading into the final 20 minutes. “It certainly wasn’t a dud,’’ said coach Joel Quenneville, dismissing part of the letdown theory. “It was a dud at the start, but I thought we got ourselves in the game and we gave ourselves a chance to at least tie it and play the third period, where anything can happen. The

fact that we didn’t get one in the third period with the opportunities we had--it was just one of those games. Not tonight.’’ Antoine Roussel gave the Stars their 4-3 advantage on a penalty shot at 3:01 of the third after being hooked on a breakaway by Niklas Hjalmarsson. The goal was the first Corey Crawford has given up on a penalty shot. He was 10 for 10, including 4 for 4 this year. From there, the Hawks applied plenty of pressure. But Lehtonen did not yield. “He really stood on his head tonight,’’ Kris Versteeg said. “He played really good. But we should be happy with how we played, especially in the second and third. I kept looking up there, and there were more and more shots, and there were good scoring opportunities, too. We had looks from everywhere. He’s a good goalie. You have to give him credit. He hangs in there. Tonight, Kari really came to play.’’ Patrick Sharp started the rally with a power-play slapshot from above the right

circle at 9:39. It was his 200th goal as a Blackhawk. “It’s a special goal,’’ Sharp said. “Hopefully, there’s a lot more to come. I wasn’t really thinking about it out there. It was a pretty intense game. I was trying to get a couple more.’’ Nick Leddy made it 3-2 with a quick little shot from below the right circle that found the five-hole at 16:09 after some good puck movement. Just 65 seconds later, Johnny Oduya tied the game 3-3 with a shot from the left point at 17:14 on an assist from Patrick Kane. Hawks captain Jonathan Toews is familiar with the tendency of teams to not play well at home after a long road trip. “It’s just a matter of keeping this thing going without changing our style,’’ Toews said. “We’ve been winning games all sorts of ways lately. We need to be smart, play disciplined. We have to remind ourselves that we’ll get our offense. But if we have to win a tight game, that’s what we’ll do.’’

Hampshire guard Cork Kane earns November honor scores 22 in loss to PR HAWKS NOTES

By HERB GOULD

• BOYS HOOPS Continued from page C1 Hampshire (2-3) made things slightly uncomfortable for the Wolves late when guard Ryan Cork hit his third and fourth 3-pointers to cut the lead to 46-42. The Whips had the ball, but Prairie Ridge was able to make Cork pass on that possession and Hampshire missed. Hampshire coach Bob Barnett had no trouble pinpointing his team’s downfall. “It was the same way, and this is why I’m upset at myself, that we started practice yesterday,” Barnett said. “We

were lackadaisical, thinking we could just walk in and win on somebody’s home court. Nobody was working on defense.” The Whips kept battling back, even with Cork having a subpar shooting night. He made his first 3 and his last three 3s to finish with 22 points, but made 1 of 13 field goals in between those 3s. “It wasn’t my day,” Cork said. “This was probably more in our first five minutes of the game. If we’d have played harder, we’d have had a better game, including myself. I need to shoot better the whole game instead of just the fourth quarter.”

hgould@suntimes.com

The honors keep coming in for the soaring Blackhawks. Patrick Kane was named the NHL’s first star for November on Tuesday. Kane’s award comes one day after Duncan Keith was named the NHL’s third star of the week ending Dec. 1. ‘‘It’s a pretty cool honor,’’ Kane said. ‘‘It probably speaks more for what the team’s been doing. When your team’s playing well, you’re going to have some personal achievements along the way. But, yeah, it’s pretty cool.’’ What Kane did in November had a lot to do with what

the Hawks did, though. The gifted winger had nine goals, including four game-winners, among his 19 points as the Hawks won 12 of 15 games. He had a career-high 12-game point streak from Nov. 3 to Nov. 27, helping the Hawks surge to a 6-1 record on their annual circus trip. ‘‘He’s been playing great,’’ coach Joel Quenneville said. ‘‘In November, he was outstanding. It seems like he has the puck more than he has in the past. It seems like every time he hits the ice, he has the puck. That’s a good thing.’’ Handzus ailing: Michal Handzus didn’t play because of an illness, Quenneville said. Handzus sat for the first time in five games after

missing 14 games with an upper-body injury. Brandon Pirri moved back into the second-line center slot he had occupied for a big chunk of Handzus’ injury. Pirri had six goals and five assists in 23 games before Tuesday. Sheldon Brookbank dressed in Handzus’ place. Crow flies: Corey Crawford was back in goal after taking a break in two of the Hawks’ previous three games. This was his second consecutive game against the Stars. Backup Antti Raanta was in net for a 3-2 win in Calgary and a 5-2 win in Phoenix. In between, Crawford stopped Dallas in a 2-1 shootout victory.

Adjusting to rules: With officials on the lookout for players using their hands and making contact with opponents, the tightly enforced hand-check calls are forcing many teams to rethink the way they play defense. One option that has been embraced by many teams is switching from man-to-man to zone defenses. It’s a particularly appealing option for teams with a short bench, such as Prairie Ridge, which has only nine players. “Zone defense is a good way to stay out of foul trouble,” Prairie Ridge coach Rob Baker said. “You do have to adjust, but zones help that. We can’t handle foul trouble, but we can play some man-toman.” Better free throw shooting teams certainly will have an advantage with the increase in hand-check calls. Teams are often getting in the bonus earlier in games because of the calls. In Jacobs’ game last week against Streamwood, officials called 46 fouls with six total players getting whistled for at least four fouls each. “We’ve got to adjust,” Jacobs coach Joe Benoit said. “We know officials are adjusting, coaches, players – we’re all adjusting. We just have to do a better job of moving our feet.” Division play begins: Division play gets fully underway this week in the Fox Valley Conference, and only one team enters the conference schedule undefeated. Coming off winning the DundeeCrown Thanksgiving Tournament after going 5-0, Huntley (7-0) opens FVC Valley play Friday at DundeeCrown.

This week’s top games Woodstock North at Woodstock 7 p.m. Thursday The crosstown rivalry is the FVC Fox Division opener for both teams, which are looking to get on track after slow starts to the season.

CL South done in by 26 percent shooting • GIRLS HOOPS Continued from page C1 Still, South had some good looks against the Wolves’ defense. Gators coach Kyle McCaughn said his team was not surprised by Prairie Ridge using a unique defensive configuration. Despite attempting six more shots than the Wolves, South shot only 26 percent compared to the Wolves’ 44 percent from the field. “We’re just too good of shooters to shoot at that percentage, and that falls on me as a coach,” McCaughn said. “I’ve got to put us in those

game situations in a timely fashion in practices and get them in rhythm so they feel a little more confident. Right now they’re doubting themselves and I need to get that confidence back in them.” Prairie Ridge never trailed against the Gators, opening the game with a 3-pointer by junior guard Kelly Klendworth (11 points). By the end of the third quarter, the Wolves had a 34-22 lead. At that point, Drain had scored as many points as the Gators. Part of Drain’s effectiveness was South’s inability to stop passes from getting inside, even when the defense fronted her. It didn’t help that the Ga-

tors were without junior starting forward Carly Nolan. Although Nolan is out with an injury, McCaughn didn’t want to speculate on her injury or how long she would be sidelined. McCaughn believes the Gators are close to becoming a consistently successful team and ending their fourgame game losing streak. “It comes down to me as a coach to figure out what’s going to make us successful,” McCaughn said. “Right now the girls are questioning themselves, they’re questioning me to figure out what it is that we need to do. That’s my job. I need to figure that out.”

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS

5 former Chiefs sue team Players say club hid, lied about risks of head injuries By BILL DRAPER The Associated Press

H. Rick Bamman – hbamman@shawmedia.com

The Bears are unlikely to pay Jay Cutler under a franchise tag next season, general manager Phil Emery said.

BEARS

Bears aren’t looking to ‘franchise’ Cutler By PATRICK FINLEY pfinley@suntimes.com If Jay Cutler stays with the Bears, it likely won’t be a oneyear proposition. General manager Phil Emery said in an online chat Tuesday that paying Cutler under the franchise tag for one season – rather than using it as a means to negotiate a longer deal – would harm the team’s ability to sign other players. The nonexclusive franchise tag figure for quarterbacks next season is projected to be around $16.2 million, based on the average cost of franchise quarterback figures over the past five years and the percentage of the salary cap. If the Bears franchise Cutler in February, they would have until July 15 to work out a long-term deal. If the Bears, Cutler and

agent Bus Cook can’t agree on a longer deal, however, the team would be stuck with a salary Emery thinks is onerous. “With the franchise tag being so high for the quarterback position, to use it and not sign the individual to a long-term deal hurts the team,” Emery wrote on Bears.com Tuesday, “because you lose the ability to prorate the amount of guaranteed salary over the length of the contract.” Signing Cutler to a longterm deal would lower his cap hit from the $16.2 million franchise salary. He is currently making $8.47 million in the last season of a five-year, $50.37 million deal. “Obviously the lower the number in relation to the salary cap,” Emery wrote, “the more players you can sign to help your team reach its goals.”

More than half the team – including cornerbacks Charles Tillman and Tim Jennings, returner Devin Hester, center Roberto Garza and kicker Robbie Gould – will be free agents at the end of the season. So will Josh McCown, who has shined as Cutler’s backup. “We like both Jay and Josh,” wrote Emery, who called this upcoming offseason his toughest to date, “and we’ll be working after the season to address both their contract situations.” Cutler has completed 167 of 265 passes for 1,908 yards, 13 touchdowns and eight interceptions in eight games, missing four with a high left ankle sprain and torn left groin. He said last week his injury “obviously doesn’t help the situation” when trying to predict his future.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Five former Kansas City Chiefs players who were on the team between 1987 and 1993 filed a lawsuit Tuesday claiming the team hid and even lied about the risks of head injuries during that time period when there was no collective bargaining agreement in place in the NFL. The lawsuit was filed in Jackson County Circuit Court on behalf of former players Leonard Griffin, Chris Martin, Joe Phillips, Alexander Louis Cooper and Kevin Porter, all of whom played on defense. It seeks more than $15,000 in actual and punitive damages. All five players have opted out of a multimillion-dollar settlement announced this summer that would compensate former

players for their head injuries. The Kansas City plaintiffs claim to be suffering from post-concussion syndrome and latent brain disease because of multiple concussions they suffered while playing for the Chiefs. They all claim also to be suffering from chronic traumatic encephalopathy, which can only be definitively diagnosed by examining the brain after death. Martin, who played linebacker for the Chiefs from 1988 to 1993, said at a news conference he didn’t know that continuing to play in games after suffering a head injury would cause permanent damage. “I would have liked to have the opportunity to know that going back on the field would cause me to have severe disabilities later in life,” he said. “I didn’t know that. That’s what the lawsuit is about.”

Chiefs spokesman Ted Crews and NFL spokesman Greg Aiello declined to comment on the suit. Plaintiffs’ attorney Ken McClain called the proposed $765 million settlement between the NFL and former players insignificant and said it provides compensation only to the former players with the most severe brain injuries. None of the five plaintiffs will get monetary compensation under that deal, he said. “All they’re going to be is monitored over time, but no relief will be offered to them,” McClain said. “It’s really a very small amount of money if you do the math. It’s paid out over 20 years, it’s $765 million total. It’s a little under $20 million a year the teams are contributing to these very severely injured people. It’s not very much money.”

Kids make Bears’ Bennett smile • MUSICK Continued from page C1 “Are you sure?” Bennett asked. Conor nodded yes. So Bennett selected a blue Sharpie and signed his name across the kindergartener’s forearm. That won’t be coming out for a while. “I think I’m fine with it,” his mom, Roxana Naughton, said with a laugh. • Noah Melick, a 14-yearold from Algonquin, showed up in his basketball warm-ups for the Westfield Wolves. “Can you dunk?” Bennett asked. Noah, who stands 5-foot-10, shook his head no. “You should be dunking soon,” Bennett said. “In eighth grade, I was doing 360s.” Noah thinks he’ll be able

herma Tru Doors On Sale Now!

to dunk, eventually. He also thinks Bennett is cool. “I thought he was going to be shy,” Noah said. Bennett is anything but shy. “I believe in the creativity in kids,” Bennett said. “So I just like to mess with them and play with them as much as possible to encourage them to be creative.” “As we grow up, we start losing our imagination, which is a sad thing. Because we all need our imagination to solve problems.” Bennett has problems just like the rest of us. His ribs hurt and might be fractured. His back was sore from sitting for so long. His rain-soaked ride to McHenry County was long, and his football team is struggling. But Bennett is smiling. Kids have a way of making

him do that. Soon, he and his wife will have one of their own – a girl, due in March. “Through interaction and conversation with people, it makes me feel a lot better,” Bennett said. “Especially with the kids. The kids are always happy. “I believe that kids see everything with one emotion. So either they’re happy or they’re sad. But as we grow up and we get older, we start seeing things in contradictions. So we can love someone and hate them at the same time. “But kids aren’t like that. They’re so happy to see you.” For Bennett, the feeling is mutual. • Northwest Herald sports columnist Tom Musick can be reached at tmusick@shawmedia.com and on Twitter @ tcmusick.

Northwest Herald / NWHerald.com

Integrity and skill: Lynch shows Heisman qualities I save these cool Heisman Journals sent out by the Heisman Trophy Trust each year-- got them going back to 1995, when I started at the newspaper. In the earliest edition there is an article explaining how the trophy itself was fashioned from clay in 1934 by famed sculptor Frank Eliscu, using some dude named Ed Smith from NYU’s football team as his model. The Heisman people had decided old-fashioned cups or bowls were too commonplace for their lofty prize, and that the trophy ``should be the replica in bronze of a muscular footballer driving for yardage.’’ Walter Payton wasn’t available, so we have Smith doing his thing. Actually, he’s stiff-arming menacingly with his right hand out, fingers splayed, his left leg trailing dramatically like a plastic worm trolled teasingly for bass, in a pose so cornball and iconic that it’s been struck for decades by players from college on down to basement Nerf ball fields after big plays. There, I just did it myself. Feels good. Feels all Gipper-ish. Gotta chuckle. So, anyway, as a Heisman Trophy voter I need to make a decision each year about whom I think should get the 45-pound statue, a copy of which 1968 winner O.J. Simpson sold for $230,000. The conditions and terms are somewhat vague. We’re looking for the best collegiate football player, obviously. But how do you define that in a team game, with so many positions? It’s worth noting that no defensive lineman or linebacker has ever won. And the only defensive back to win was Michigan’s Charles Woodson, who beat out Peyton Manning in 1997. But Woodson also returned punts and played wide receiver. So we’re mostly thinking about quarterbacks and running backs. (Offensive linemen might as well hibernate.) This year we six players to ponder: Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, Boston College running back Andre Williams, quarterback A.J. McCarron of Alabama, Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller, Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch, and last year’s winner, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel. I can go over these players and give my knee-jerk response, which is usually corresponds with my rational investigation of numbers, yards, wins, etc. But before I continue, let’s hear what the Heisman Trophy Trust’s “Mission Statement” is in the 2012 Journal. The trophy “recognizes the outstanding college football player whose performance best exhibits the pursuit of excellence and integrity.”

VIEWS Rick Telander Hmm. We’re thinking about wild young “Johnny Football,” who during last offseason, was a bit like a sailor in port after two years at sea. We’ll scratch him off because A&M is only 8-4, and he didn’t upset Alabama this year. Then there’s Jameis Winston, great player, but he’s got a sexual assault investigation hanging over his shoulder pads. He’s out, too. A.J. McCarron? For years he’s been leading that Alabama quasi-NFL team, which still lost to Auburn last week, and his stats aren’t ridiculous. Out. B.C.’s Andre Williams? Who he? Out. Braxton Miller, the young man running the Big Buckeye Bulldozer? He hasn’t lost a game in two years, but he missed a few games this season because of injury, and who knows how he’ll do against Michigan State’s tough defense in the Big Ten Championship Game. Out. So here stands NIU’s Lynch, protruding on the Illinois prairie like a meerkat standing sentinel on the Serengeti. Lynch plays in the lowly Mid-American Conference, in a small stadium, in a region dominated by Big Ten interest. But there he stands, credentials as impeccable as he can make them. He ended the regular season by breaking his own record for rushing yards in a game by a quarterback (321 yards), becoming just the fifth NCAA player to pass for 5,000 yards and run for 4,000 yards in a career. The guy has a good arm and great field awareness, but his running ability is crazy. He spins, he weaves, he plows, he can’t be tackled. It doesn’t make sense as you watch, but it happens again and again. For the season he rushed for 1,755 yards and 20 touchdowns. He also had 22 passing TDs. Oh, and did we mention his team is 12-0? Winning might be Lynch’s greatest attribute. Maybe he’ll blow a gasket in the MAC title game Friday. Who knows? Maybe he’ll fade in NIU’s bowl game. But this guy has done all he can, and in voting dominated by regional bias, if a voter doesn’t stand up for what he recognizes in his own backyard, who will? My ballot goes in soon. It’s not for who will be the best pro or sell the most tickets or make the best commercials. It’s for the best – good – college player. Mr. Lynch. • Rick Telander is a Chicago Sun-Times sports columnist who can be reached at rtelander@suntimes.com.

BIG TEN CHAMPIONSHIP: MICHIGAN ST. VS. OHIO ST., 7 P.M. SATURDAY, FOX

Spartans coach Dantonio: ‘No issues’ with Buckeyes By NOAH TRISTER The Associated Press EAST LANSING, Mich. – Mark Dantonio wants to make it abundantly clear there is no lingering animosity between him and the coaching staff at Ohio State. “There are no issues,” Dantonio said Tuesday. “A lot of times I think it’s the media bringing up things that happened two years ago that are trying to create that.” Still, the matchup is an intriguing one. Dantonio’s 10th-ranked Spartans take on the second-ranked Buckeyes on Saturday night in a Big Ten championship game full of story lines. Dantonio was an assistant at Ohio State under Jim Tressel when the Buckeyes had their national title season in 2002. Now he’s standing in the way of a different Ohio State staff that is on the verge of playing for a national championship. Michigan State hasn’t played in the Rose Bowl since 1988, but the Spartans (111) have a chance to end that drought with a win this weekend. Dantonio is even acknowl-

edging the far-fetched possibility that the team he coaches could work its way into the BCS championship discussion this year. “When we – or however you want to put this – if we’re 12-1 at the end of the week, why not us?” Dantonio said. “If certain scenarios take place, which obviously, last week you saw a lot of scenarios take place. There are no givens in college football.” Dantonio did say he thought the Buckeyes (12-0) should play for the national title if they beat Michigan State, and there was no real hint of any tension between him and the school where he once coached. Dantonio is from Zanesville, Ohio, and he was an assistant at Ohio State before taking over as the head coach at Cincinnati before the 2004 season. He later moved on to Michigan State. Tressel remained in charge at Ohio State until he was forced out before the 2011 season amid a memorabilia-for-cash scandal. Urban Meyer eventually took over the Buckeyes, and they haven’t lost since, winning 24 straight games over the last

two seasons. Meyer’s aggressive reputation from his days at Florida immediately drew attention throughout the Big Ten, where “flipping” recruits suddenly became a major topic. Dantonio was asked about that on signing day in 2012 and said he thought it was “pretty unethical” to aggressively pursue verbal commitments from other programs. Dantonio was speaking generically – and released a statement a couple of days later insisting he wasn’t directing his comments at any school in particular. Last season, after Ohio State’s 17-16 win in East Lansing, Michigan State complained that the Buckeyes had sent “incomplete” video before the game. Spartans defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi told the Detroit Free Press that Ohio State had deleted pre-snap motions and shifts before plays on video of its first four games that season. Narduzzi indicated that the Spartans had complained to the league, although Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis said he and Gene Smith, his counterpart at Ohio State, had settled the issue.

MAC CHAMPIONSHIP: NIU VS. BOWLING GREEN, 6 P.M. FRIDAY, ESPN2

Adjustments start early for improving defense By STEVE NITZ snitz@shawmedia.com DeKALB – When people talk about Northern Illinois, Jordan Lynch is the first person that comes to mind. Deservedly so, but the Huskies’ defense probably deserves some share of the credit as well. It’s a unit that ranks 39th in the country, giving up 23.6 points a game, heading into Friday’s Mid-American Conference Championship Game against Bowling Green in Detroit. NIU certainly wouldn’t be where it is without No. 6 under center, but the defense has done its part. “You look at our defenses, they’ve been good every year [defensive coordinator Jay Niemann]’s been here,” NIU head coach Rod Carey said Tuesday. “First year (2011) we started out rough. Look at how it ended up that first year: really good. And last year, we had all those guys back. They had the numbers and stats that make everyone think they’re really good. I think they’re really good again.”

Niemann’s group had some rough games early on. Iowa recorded 458 total yards Week 1. Idaho dropped 35 points on the Huskies in the second game, and Eastern Illinois had a 39-point effort in their third game. However, things have improved. And in the second half, the Huskies have risen to a new level. Opposing offenses average only 8.3 points after halftime. On Nov. 13, NIU held Keith Wenning and Ball State’s high-powered offense to three points in the second half. A week later, Toledo scored only seven second-half points. Even during the Huskies’ early-season struggles, the defense clamped down after halftime. The Hawkeyes scored three second-half points, the Vandals seven. Only Purdue, Eastern Illinois and Eastern Michigan have scored double-digit points in the second half this season, and no team has outscored the Huskies after halftime. That has resulted in a plus-148 point differential in the second half.

When asked about his team’s second-half success, Niemann gave credit to making sideline adjustments. Things like changing a coverage that his team’s making a check to, formations the defense is seeing and how the defensive linemen are positioned. They’ve certainly worked. “I think a lot’s said about halftime adjustments, but truth of the matter is most of those adjustments are beginning to take place somewhere in the second quarter and you can finalize all those thoughts, get them permanent,” Niemann said. “Sometimes you get caught on a three-and-out on offense and something happens in the flow of the game where you don’t have time to make all the adjustments you’d like to in the second quarter. “We’ve started most of those things, the process is underway, and at the half we just finalize it. The kids have done a great job of understanding what we’re trying to do and taking those adjustments to the game in the third quarter.”

NIU NOTES

Carey counts on kicker Sims By STEVE NITZ snitz@shawmedia.com DeKALB – Northern Illinois Mathew Sims has come up with some big kicks in the Mid-American Conference Championship Game. Two years ago, his 33-yard field goal as time expired gave NIU a 23-20 win over Ohio. Last season, his 40-yard kick in overtime against Kent State sent the game into double overtime, and the Huskies eventually won the game and headed to the Orange Bowl. Lately, NIU hasn’t seen the same old Sims. He didn’t hit any of his three field goal attempts against Toledo, and missed a 34-yarder against Western Michigan before hitting from 23 and 32 yards out. The Huskies could very well need a big kick out of Sims on Friday against Bowling Green in the MAC title game, and Carey hasn’t lost faith in his senior kicker. “I’ve got tons of confidence,” Carey said at Tuesday’s news conference. “He hit a couple

Northern Illinois kicker Mathew Sims has been in a slump. big ones the other night. He’ll be there in the clutch.” Other notes from Tuesday’s news conference: • Wide receiver Tommylee Lewis, who has missed the past two games with a toe injury, will be back this week, Carey said. Angelo Sebastiano, who was injured against Toledo, will not play. • Cornerback Jhony Faustin, defensive tackle Ken Bishop and linebacker Jamaal

Bass, all of whom sat out the Western Michigan game, will play Friday. • Carey said he was able to catch Saturday’s “Iron Bowl” between Auburn and Alabama in his office. He said the Huskies practice field goal returns each Thursday. “It’s hard. You’ve got fat guys on the field trying to cover a kick,” he joked. “It’s rough.” • Playing in the MAC Championship Gane gives the Huskies some extra practice time, and NIU will get two more weeks of practice with the bowl game. However, Carey did say other MAC coaches who aren’t playing this week are able to be out on the road recruiting, while NIU’s coaching staff doesn’t have that option and has to make phone calls instead. • Offensive coordinator Bob Cole said Jordan Lynch has done a better job getting out of bounds this year instead of just trying to run people over. Cole said Lynch is healthier than he was at this time a season ago.

ory. He was referring to a late-game possession on which the Illini whiffed on three shots, but he could’ve been describing the entire final 9:15 of the game. John Groce’s team made all of one field goal during that fateful, frustrating period, a turnaround 15-footer by Egwu off a post-up. The 6-foot-11 junior was fouled on the play and hit the free throw for a 63-30 lead with 1:33 to go. “I thought our execution was absolutely pathetic,” Groce said. “It was awful.” Unlike his coaching counterpart, Groce was referring to the final 9:15 – not to mention a lengthy chunk to end the first half, when the Illini went from 26-17 up to 36-33 down entering the intermission. “The execution part has

got to be better. Ultimately, that’s on me,” Groce said. “We don’t have any excuses. We never have any excuses.” The loss dropped Illinois to 7-8 all-time in the Challenge and ended their fourgame winning streak, which was the best for any team from either league heading into this event. The Illini got a late 10-0 run from Joe Bertrand a year ago in Champaign that erased a deficit and propelled them to victory over Georgia Tech. This time, Rayvonte Rice led a second-half charge, scoring 10 straight Illini points and 15 in all over the opening 9:21 of the second half. At that point, Rice had his game-high 24. Unfortunately, that’s where he – and AP photo his team – hit a wall that was Georgia Tech’s Trae Golden passes around Illinois’ Joseph Bertrand in mostly of their own buildthe first half Tuesday in Atlanta. ing.

BIG TEN/ACC CHALLENGE ROUNDUP

No. 23 Hawkeyes bounce back, beat Notre Dame The ASSOCIATED PRESS IOWA CITY, Iowa – Aaron White scored 20 points and Devyn Marble and Jarrod Uthoff added 17 each for Iowa in its 98-93 win against Notre Dame on Tuesday. Marble had 13 straight points in the second half for the Hawkeyes (81), who bounced back from an overtime loss to No. 14 Villanova with just their third win in 13 Big Ten/ACC Challenge games. Uthoff made two free throws and threw down an open dunk in the final 37 seconds to help seal the win for Iowa, which scored over 90 points for the third time this season. Garrick Sherman had a career-high 29 points and Eric Atkins added 23 for Notre Dame (5-2), which lost despite shooting 51.5 percent

from the field. Iowa was even better from the field, shooting 56.9 percent. No. 4 Syracuse 69, Indiana 52: At Syracuse, N.Y., Trevor Cooney scored 21 points, Tyler Ennis added 17 points and eight assists, and Syracuse beat Indiana in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. Syracuse (8-0) has won 46 straight nonconference games at home, and there was no love lost in this rematch from last season’s East Regional semifinal won handily by the Orange. Indiana was called for two flagrant fouls Tuesday, the second coming in the second half as the game was slipping away. Syracuse used a 25-4 surge to break open a tie game. The youthful Hoosiers (6-2) had only lost, 59-58, to No. 12 Connecticut at Madison Square Garden in the

in the Challenge. Caris LeVert matched his career-high with 24 points for Michigan. Rodney Hood added 14 points for the Blue Devils. Pittsburgh 78, Penn St. 69: At Pittsburgh, Talib Zanna scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half, and Pittsburgh pulled away late for a victory over Penn State in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. James Robinson added 10 points for Pitt (8-0), including consecutive fast break layups with less than 3 minutes to play to turn aside one final rally by the Nittany Lions (6-3). Tim Frazier led Penn State with 27 points, but the Nittany Lions fell to Pitt for the sixth straight time. D.J. Newbill chipped in 18, but Penn State couldn’t keep up when Pitt turned up the pressure down the stretch.

No. 10 Duke 79, No. 22 Michigan 69: At Durham, N.C., Quinn Cook had 24 points and nine assists to lead Duke in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. Freshman Jabari Parker added 15 points to help the Blue Devils (72) regroup from last week’s loss to Arizona by grinding out a tough win against the Wolverines. Duke didn’t shoot the ball well early but frustrated Michigan’s offense, turning away every spurt and keeping the Wolverines (5-3) at arm’s length much of the game. Andre Dawkins came in midway through the second half and hit two straight 3-pointers to finally start Duke’s clinching run, helping the Blue Devils to improve to 13-2 all-time

MLB NOTES

Clark 1st ex-big leaguer to be players’ union boss The ASSOCIATED PRESS

AP file photo

The Bulls on Tuesday assigned Marquis Teague to the Iowa Energy of the NBA Development League.

BULLS

Teague to D-League Forman sees assignment as ‘short-lived’ By JOE COWLEY jcowley@suntimes.com When Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau started playing veteran point guard Mike James over second-year player Marquis Teague this weekend in Cleveland, it was obvious Teague was on the slide. That’s why it was no surprise that the Bulls announced on Tuesday that Teague was assigned to the Iowa Energy of the NBA Development League (D-League). The good news for the 2012 first-round pick [29th overall]? The move had more to do with development than punishment. “Marquis is doing great,” general manager Gar Forman said. “We see an opportunity for him to get some significant time on the floor. We see

“Marquis is doing great. We see an opportunity for him to get some signiicant time on the loor (in Iowa). We see it as short-lived.” Gar Forman Bulls general manager it as short-lived. “He’s still 20 years old, he’s still young. We like Marquis’ potential, but for his development there might be scenarios throughout the season where he gets playing time down there.” With the Bulls off until Thursday when they host Miami, and then only two more home games over a five-day

stretch after that, this proved to be one of those scenarios. The 6-foot-2 Teague had played in nine games so far this season, averaging 1.2 points and 0.8 assist a game in 8.9 minutes a game. He did see only six seconds in the triple-overtime loss to New Orleans Monday night, while James played just under 10 minutes. As far as Thibodeau pulling Teague aside before the Cleveland game to let him know that James had jumped him in the rotation, Thibodeau said, “You’re always talking to your players, but you’re doing what’s best for your team. So that’s the way we deal with those things.’’ According to Forman, the Bulls have no plans for an additional body to be added to the roster at this time.

SAN DIEGO – Tony Clark said he’s “blown away” that he is the first former major leaguer to become head of the baseball players’ union. The executive board of the Major League Baseball Players Association voted unanimously Tuesday to appoint Clark to replace Michael Weiner, who died Nov. 21 of brain cancer. The decision is pending a vote of the general membership. Clark was an All-Star in 2001 and played for 15 seasons with Detroit, Arizona, the New York Mets, New York Yankees, Boston and San Diego. The 41-year-old was appointed deputy executive director in July and had been acting executive director since Weiner’s death. The executive board is meeting this week at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego. Clark went to high school in the San Diego area and played basketball at San Diego State. After retiring during the 2009 season, Clark had opportunities in broadcasting and coaching. Instead, he said he woke up one day and told his wife that he should work for the players’ union, “having no idea that we would be sitting before you, Dec. 3, 2013, in this capacity, but appreciating all the while that Michael’s vision for our organization, my involvement with it, and the hope and having and making a difference for our group, active and inactive and those that are coming next, was the final decision-maker for me.”

Ellsbury close to joining Yankees: At New York, a person familiar with the negotiations says the New York Yankees were working toward an agreement with outfielder

Cubs hire Hinske as first base coach CHICAGO – The Cubs hired 2002 AL Rookie of the Year Eric Hinske as their first base coach. The 36-year-old Hinske played 12 seasons in the majors. He came up with Toronto and later played in three straight World Series, winning championships with Boston in 2007 and the New York Yankees in 2009. He also played for Tampa Bay (2008), Pittsburgh (2009), Atlanta (2010-12) and Arizona (2013), finishing with a .249 batting average, 137 home runs and 522 RBIs. Hinske was a 17th-round draft pick by the Cubs in 1998. The move announced Tuesday completes new manager Rick Renteria’s staff. – The Associated Press Jacoby Ellsbury on a seven-year contract worth about $153 million. Ellsbury, who helped Boston win the World Series this year, would be the second major free-agent addition in the Yankees’ offseason rebuilding. He was to take a physical in New York on Wednesday, the person said, speaking on the condition of anonymity because no statements were authorized. New York had not yet finalized any deal with Ellsbury, a second person familiar with the talks said Tuesday night, also speaking on the condition of anonymity because no statements were authorized.

Red Sox near deal for Pierzynski; Saltalamacchia to Marlins: At Boston, free-agent catcher A.J. Pierzynski agreed to a one-year contract with the Boston Red Sox, a person with knowledge of the negotiations said Tuesday. The deal would be pending a physical. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the team hadn’t finalized the agreement. The lefty-hitting Pierzynski and righty David Ross, the backup, both will be 37 next season. With catching prospects Christian Vazquez and Blake Swihart making their

way up the system, the Red Sox were reluctant to give a multiyear deal to free agent Jarrod Saltalamacchia, their starter the past three seasons. Pierzynski hit .272 with 17 homers and 70 RBIs last season, his only one with Texas. At Miami, a person familiar with the negotiations said Saltalamacchia agreed to a $21 million, three-year deal with the Miami Marlins. The person confirmed the agreement to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the contract had not been finalized.

A’s acquire Gentry, Lindblom from Texas: At Oakland, Calif., Craig Gentry is committed to doing what he can to help the Athletics win another division crown in 2014. The A’s added outfield depth by acquiring Gentry along with right-hander Josh Lindblom from the division rival Texas Rangers for outfielder Michael Choice and minor league infielder Chris Bostick. The teams announced the deal Tuesday, a day after Oakland traded for AL saves leader Jim Johnson in a swap with Baltimore and also reached agreement on a $22 million, two-year contract with left-handed starter Scott Kazmir.

T

he trouble with the holiday season is the baking guilt. The issue is I don’t like baking. It’s too precise a practice for me to enjoy. I prefer the little-of-this-little-of-that approach to cooking, which works fine for pasta dinners, but generally is a disagreeable way to bake. But at this time of year, we are constantly reminded that happy families are supposed to have special bonding moments while baking luscious holiday treats. If we really loved our children, we’d be delighted by the mess they make while dumping flour on the floor and spilling raw eggs down the side of the stove. And so begins the guilt. Not only are we supposed to be baking, we’re also supposed to be enjoying it. To attempt to assuage my guilt, every year I search for something I can handle. A recipe that is fast and easy. A recipe that is forgiving enough to accommodate my freewheeling approach to the kitchen. A recipe that requires minimal

mess, minimal fuss, is child-friendly and will satisfy that peculiar holiday carb-driven urge. This year I decided to do away with the trouble of a search and simply create my own. I wanted a cookie that is versatile and simple. A drop cookie was ideal; no bothersome shaping or chilling or decorating. Can’t get enough If it could be made in one bowl, all holiday desserts? Pick the better. And flexibility was a up next week’s Taste must. section for our 12 Days These cherry-chocolate drop of Cookies countdown cookies are the easy and delicious to Christmas. result.

Crisp cookies are just a bit healthy

Spiked Mocha Chestnut Truffles

By SARA MOULTON The Associated Press

Chestnuts key to truffles Who doesn’t love chocolate truffles? They are the essence of chocolate, and a sure-fire mood enhancer. Pop even one into your mouth and see if you don’t get happy. Given the richness of a chocolate truffle – a blend of chocolate, sugar and cream – it’s nice chocolate has been found to be good for us. Still, assuming you wanted to jettison some of the calories in this treat without sacrificing a molecule of its lush flavor, where would you start? Cutting the chocolate or sugar would be a bad idea. Both are needed. But how about the cream? The trick to cutting cream is you don’t want to sacrifice the creaminess of the truffle in the process. The solution? Chestnuts. This brilliant work-around was discovered years ago by Sally Schneider, the author of a great healthy cookbook called “The Art of Low-Calorie Cooking.” She found roasted and pureed chestnuts provide a super-creamy texture for treats such as truffles. And because chestnuts don’t actually taste like much, they don’t compete with the

EVERYDAY DINNERS Sara Moulton truffle’s chocolate essence. Added benefits? Unlike most nuts, chestnuts are low in fat and high in complex carbohydrates. Of course, chestnuts – or at least those roasted on an open fire – have figured in Christmas lore for ages. Peeled and roasted chestnuts are widely available in grocers everywhere during the holiday season. That’s what I’ve used in this recipe. But be sure to properly simmer the nuts in water as directed. This guarantees they’ll puree smoothly. You don’t want chestnut chunks in your truffles. You’ll notice instant espresso in the list of ingredients. It’s there to amplify the chocolate flavor while adding a hint of coffee flavor. But you can leave it out if you don’t like coffee. Likewise, I suggest adding a couple of teaspoons of any of several different liquors, all of which pair up nicely with chocolate.

Spiked Mocha Chestnut Truffles Start to finish: 4 hours (25 minutes active) Makes 20 truffles 5.2-ounce package roasted and peeled chestnuts, medium chopped 3/4 cup water 1/3 cup low-fat evaporated milk 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, medium chopped 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder or 1 tablespoon instant coffee Pinch of table salt 2 tablespoons light corn syrup 2 teaspoons Tia Maria, Kahlua, Baileys, brandy or rum 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the chestnuts and water. Bring to boil, then reduce the heat to maintain a simmer, cover and cook until the chestnuts are very tender and all the water has been absorbed, about 30 minutes. Add the milk and heat the mixture until it just comes to a simmer. Remove the pan from the heat, add the chocolate, then

recover the pan. Let stand off the burner until the chocolate is melted, about 3 to 4 minutes. Stir and transfer to a blender along with the espresso powder, salt, corn syrup and liquor. Blend until very smooth. Transfer to a bowl, cover tightly with plastic wrap and chill until very firm, at least 3 hours. Form the mixture into small balls (about 2 teaspoons each) and roll the balls in the cocoa powder until they are coated, shaking off the excess. Chill until ready to serve. Will keep, refrigerated, for 2 weeks.

I was a happy little butterball when I was a kid. Sweets were my thing, desserts in particular. And chocolate desserts most of all. The one exception to the rule? My grandmother’s oatmeal cookies. They were sweet, of course, but also lacy and crispy. Back then I didn’t know or care that oatmeal cookies were a healthier choice than most other treats (thanks to the oats, which are a concentrated source of fiber and nutrients). But healthfulness alone has never done it for me. During my hippy days, I was well aware of the nutritional benefits of granola cookies – which are, in essence, soft oatmeal cookies stuffed with dried fruit and nuts – but they struck me as more like medicine than dessert. Besides, I missed the crispiness of my grandmother’s version. This is an embellished rendition of Grandma Ruth’s cookies. We start with a pure base: oatmeal, butter, white sugar, a whole egg and vanilla extract. No low-fat ingredients. I firmly believe a modest serving of a full-fat, full-sugar dessert is more enjoyable than a larger serving of something with no fat or fake sugar. In a festive nod to the holidays, I’ve spruced up the basic recipe with chocolate and orange, a combination that plays beautifully together. Bittersweet chocolate chips are my chocolate of choice, but you’re welcome to substitute chopped bittersweet chocolate or semisweet chocolate chips, if you prefer. They’ll stay fresh for several weeks in an airtight container at room temperature, which allows you to keep eating when your guests and the holidays are gone, but your cravings remain.

Chocolate Orange Lace Cookies Start to finish: 50 minutes

Double the oats for a pleasing holiday cookie By ELIZABETH KARMEL The Associated Press Many people would balk at the idea of eating holiday cookies for breakfast, but this recipe might make you reconsider. These Double-The-Oats Oatmeal Cookies are so jammed with oats – making them tender and wonderfully chewy and rich – that I’ve been known to take them on vacation just so I can enjoy a familiar breakfast. Because if you could enjoy your morning bowl of oatmeal in the form of a cookie, why not? The inspiration for this cookie actually began with my dislike of raisins. Most oatmeal cookies are packed with raisins, which usually turns me off. So I wanted to create my own take on this classic cookie. I started with a basic cookie dough made with creamed butter, then added twice as many oats as a traditional cookie. I also substituted dried cherries for the raisins. The result was a good cookie, but it wasn’t a great cookie. I wanted to be able to taste the individual ingredients, and I wanted a crispier texture. I was at loss until a trip to Houston unexpectedly gave me the answer. I was visiting a friend whose mom recently had sent him a tin of her oatmeal cookies. I tried one and wanted to eat the entire batch. I loved the texture and the light, clean taste. They were crisp

and toothsome, everything I was looking for. The secret? She used vegetable oil instead of butter. At first, I thought this was odd, but then I realized that a lot of my favorite cakes were made with oil, not butter. As soon as I got home, I tested my recipe with oil and I could not believe the difference. My cookies had gone from good to great and I started baking them weekly. Because I like to eat these cookies for breakfast with a cup of coffee, I bake them and keep them in the freezer so I have them on hand most of the time. I generally bake the cookies with dried cherries and pecans, which makes me equate them with eating a bowl of granola. But during the holidays, I love making them with dark chocolate chips and walnuts. The addition of the rich chocolate makes them more decadent and takes them from a breakfast cookie to a special occasion cookie. Feel free to substitute 1½ cups of dark chocolate chips and 1 cup of chopped walnuts for the dried cherries and pecans. Either version is delicious and perfect for a holiday – or any day – treat.

Double-The-Oats Oatmeal Cookies Start to finish: 30 minutes Makes 3 dozen cookies 2 eggs

(30 minutes active) Makes 2 dozen cookies 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened 1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons sugar 1 large egg 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 tablespoon freshly grated orange zest (about 1 orange) 1 1/4 cups rolled oats 1 teaspoon double-acting baking powder 1/8 teaspoon table salt 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with kitchen parchment. In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to beat together the butter and sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the egg, vanilla and orange zest, then beat until light and fluffy, about another 4 minutes. In another medium bowl, mix together the oats, baking powder and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and beat just until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand. Scoop the dough a tablespoon at a time onto the prepared baking sheets, arranging them about 2 inches apart and about 12 per baking sheet. Use the back of a spoon to lightly press down on each mound to slightly flatten it. Bake the cookies, one sheet at a time, on the oven’s center rack until the edges are browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack immediately and let them cool completely.

Quiche keeps carbs, fat at bay cubed butternut squash. This quiche also can be seasoned however you like. I usually keep it simple with thyme and garlic, but you can take it in any number of directions. Curry powder would be great, as would smoked paprika and cumin. And if you like it spicy, add some chopped jalapeños to the mix. I also like to finish the quiche with fat-free feta cheese. It adds a salty-savory flavor I tend to crave.

By J.M. HIRSCH The Associated Press

Persimmons brighten salad I love salad before dinner, and this is a great salad to impress holiday guests. I made this salad for a client’s holiday dinner party last week, and guests enjoyed the salad and were impressed by the introduction of the persimmons. There are two common types of persimmons. Fuyu persimmons are distinguished by their “flat” bottoms and squat shape. Fuyus should be more orange then yellow and are at their best when just barely a teensy bit soft. Hachiya persimmons are mouth-puckeringly tart unless supremely ripe. Ripe hachiyas are unbelievably soft and often almost liquefied into a silky smooth pulp inside. They are elongated and oval shaped. They will ripen once picked, so you can let them soften on the kitchen counter until ready to use. Hachiya persimmons are

THE PERSONAL CHEF Debi Stuckwisch mostly used in baking. I used the Fuyu Persimmons for this salad. They are low in calories and they have many digestive health benefits. They provide a good amount of fiber and also are fat free and a good source of healthy carbohydrates and natural sugar.

Spring mix salad with persimmons Servings: 4 For the dressing: 1 cup mild olive oil 1/4 cup champagne vinegar 1/2 cup champagne Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste Pinch sugar, optional

For the salad: 1 5-ounce package spring lettuce mix 3/4 cup dried cranberries 2 persimmons, peeled and cut into chunks 1 cup maple glazed walnuts 1 cup blue cheese crumbles 1 teaspoon garlic, minced Sea salt, to taste Coarsely ground pepper, to taste For the dressing: Whisk together olive oil, champagne vinegar, and champagne. Season to taste with salt and pepper. If the vinaigrette tastes too sharp, add a pinch of sugar and whisk until dissolved. For the salad: Peel the persimmons and cut each into 6 wedges. Remove the seeds. In a large bowl, add the lettuce and dressing. Toss to coat well. Place the salad in the center of each plate. Arrange persimmon slices around the salad and sprinkle with cranberries. Top with blue cheese crumbles and glazed walnuts.

Low-Carb Cauliflower-Bell Pepper Quiche Start to finish: 30 minutes Servings: 4 5 cups small cauliflower florets (about 1 head) 1 large red bell pepper, cored and chopped Salt and ground black pepper 8 egg whites (or 1½ cups pasteurized egg whites) 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/3 cup fat-free crumbled

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Coat the pan with cooking spray, then add the cauliflower florets and bell pepper, arranging them in an even layer. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, without stirring, for 3 minutes. Stir to turn the florets, then let them cook another 3 minutes without moving them. Once the florets are evenly browned, cover the pan and cook another 3 to 4 minutes. In a bowl, mix together the egg whites, thyme and garlic. Pour evenly over the vegetables, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover the pan and cook for 3 minutes. Sprinkle the feta over the quiche, then cover again and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes, or until the eggs are completely cooked. Season with salt and pepper.

After you’ve stuffed yourself with turkey and taters and gravy and pie and – of course – stuffing, you might be ready to do penance before the next rush of holiday calories. If so, this is the dinner for you. For those post-Thanksgiving nights when you need something lighter, I give you this simple, low-carb, high-flavor “quiche” that calls for no grains, no gluten and no heavy lifting. It has, in fact, become my go-to dinner on busy weeknights simply because it is so effortless. It also happens to be pretty versatile. The whole thing is cooked in a single skillet and requires only a few minutes hands-on time. The “crust” is made from caramelized cauliflower florets, but actually any number of other vegetables could be substituted. I’ve done it with broccoli florets, as well as

feta cheese

Woman in unhappy relationship should cut her losses Dear Abby: I have been with my fiancé since 2006. We expected to be married in 2008, but my grandmother died a month before my wedding, and then he was arrested because of charges stemming from a sexual relationship he’d had with a 17-year-old girl he had been counseling. Since then, we have had a daughter, but through it

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips all there has been cheating, drugs, jail, no job and constant excuses about why our sex life no longer exists. We also have had physical altercations, which he was

arrested for. I am no longer happy with this relationship. The only reason I stay is because of our children. I’m only 33 and don’t want to live my life in misery anymore, but I will sacrifice my happiness for my children. I am confused and don’t know what to do. I’m just going through the motions in life. I work full

time, coach my son’s soccer team and am living with MS. He does help somewhat, but it would be better if he would get a job. My mother watches my kids while I am working and after they get out of school. He claims because he doesn’t have a driver’s license he can’t get a job. Really? How many people in this world don’t drive

and still have a job? Please give me some advice. I have reached my breaking point. –

Doing The Best I Can Dear Doing The Best You Can: You say you are willing to sacrifice your happiness with this loser for your children. Why? You are not married to him, and he is emotionally neglectful, physically abusive and contributes nothing

financially. Admit to yourself the “romance” has been a mistake, and as soon as it’s safe, get away from him. If he ever finds a job, the state will help you collect child support, but if he doesn’t, you’ll have one less mouth to feed.

Blame aging for dark eye circles What was a smooth, pink surface when there was fat beneath the skin now becomes a pale and bloated surface. The dark circles under the eyes are caused by blood pooling in the veins just under the skin. When there was more fat under the skin, it covered up the blood in the veins beneath it. You’ve probably noticed the puffiness and dark circles when you first get up in the morning. That’s because when you are lying down, gravity is not pulling fluid in your tissues and blood in your veins downward into the cheeks below your eyes. There’s some folk and spa wisdom about how to get rid of bags, puffiness and dark circles: wet, cool tea bags; cotton balls dipped in rose water; and, of course, the iconic cucumber slices. Many of my patients find under-eye creams and ointments help

reduce the puffiness on awakening. Finally, there’s always cosmetic surgery if these treatments are not helping you enough – and if you have the means to pay for it. In some cases there may be an underlying cause you can treat. Nasal congestion is an example, as it causes veins around the eyes to dilate. Treating the cause of the congestion (an allergy, perhaps) can make the dark circles go away. If your eyes have gotten noticeably puffier and the puffiness doesn’t go away, see a doctor. Puffy eyes can be a sign you’re retaining fluid, which can be a symptom of a serious medical condition. Also talk to your doctor if your eyes got puffy after you started a new medication or facial cosmetic, or ate a new food. You may be having an allergic reaction.

Dear Dr. K: Why do I have bags, puffiness and dark circles around my eyes? What can I do about it? Dear Reader: My Harvard Medical School colleague Dr. Robert Shmerling wrote about this a couple of years ago in the Harvard Health Letter newsletter. Here’s some of what he said: Gently pinch the skin under your eyes and give it a little tug. You’ll feel it’s a little looser and thinner than skin elsewhere. It’s also looser and thinner than it used to be. As we age, some of the fat under the skin of the face disappears. The fat under the skin beneath our eyes that we’re born with is like wind filling a sail. As the fat disappears, the skin under the eyes becomes like a sail without wind to fill it out. In addition, gravity when we’re sitting or standing (which is true most of the day and evening) tends to pull what’s left of the fat downward into the upper cheeks. Thinner and looser skin also allows fluid to collect, causing a puffy appearance.

Filming on ‘Fast & Furious 7’ halted

THINGS

The movie studio that makes the “Fast & Furious” action franchise said Tuesday it was suspending production of the latest installment, while authorities pressed ahead with their investigation into how Paul Walker died. The Los Angeles County coroner’s office said autopsies were underway on the two bodies recovered from the fiery crash of a Porsche that Walker, a star of the mega-hit movies, and his friend were last seen riding in. Walker’s publicist has said the actor was the passenger when Roger Rodas’ Porsche Carrera GT crashed into a light pole and tree, then exploded in flames Saturday. The families of both men have provided dental records, which will permit formal identification of the bodies and official word on whether Walker or Rodas was behind the wheel. Universal Pictures said Tuesday that production of “Fast & Furious 7” is on hold. A spokesman declined to say when shooting would resume. A large portion of the film has been shot, but it is not yet complete. It’s scheduled for release in July.

Billy Joel plans stay at the Garden

Darabont returns in ‘Mob City’ At first glance, it appears Frank Darabont has shifted gears big time from “The Walking Dead” to TNT’s new drama series “Mob City,” lurching from grisly zombies to the dolled-up danger of film noir. But the writer-director doesn’t see it that way. Just as horror and sci-fi movies enthralled him as a young TV watcher – “boom, I was stuck, like a fly in amber, couldn’t turn away” – so did the classic mid-century noir of “Double Indemnity” and “Sunset Boulevard.” “I loved the heated, potboiler drama of those movies,” Darabont said, as well as the Raymond Chandler detective novels that were adapted for screen greats such as “The Big Sleep.” Mulling his childhood fascination with the trio of movie genres, Darabont has discerned a link among them: While the artifice of genre films is appealing, what matters is a story’s honesty. “The best stuff tried to say something real, say something honest,” he said. “I’m not sure it’s the trappings of the drama but the core of human storytelling that mattered to me. That’s the core of all great stories.” It’s the case with “Mob City,” which employs post-World War II Los Angeles to pull history and fiction together in a proper noir web of violence, greed and lust. The six-part series debuts at 8 p.m. today on AMC, playing out in two-episode chunks over three weeks. At its heart is the war between law and disorder waged by real-life figures LAPD Police Chief William Parker (Neal McDonough) and celebrity gangsters Ben “Bugsy” Siegel (a smooth turn by filmmaker-actor Ed Burns) and Mickey Cohen (Jeremy Luke). Gregory Itzin of “24” plays Mayor Fletcher Bowron. Also in the mix is fictional detective Joe Teague, played by “Walking Dead” alumnus Jon Bernthal, a lawman who may have his own agenda; Jasmine, the genre’s requisite beauty with a past (Alexa Davalos); mob lawyer Ned Stax (Milo Ventimiglia); and sour comic Hecky Nash (a not-to-be-missed Simon Pegg).

Billy Joel will perform once a month at Madison Square Garden – as long as the fans will have him. The Grammy Award-winning icon announced Tuesday he’ll perform a residency at the famed NYC venue every month for as long as New Yorkers demand. He’s set to perform sold-out shows Jan. 27, Feb. 3, March 21 and April 28. He also will perform on his 65th birthday, which is May 9. Tickets go on sale Saturday. “We’re gonna dust off some stuff. We’re gonna feature more of the album tracks, more obscure songs. We’ll still do some songs people are familiar with and like, but we’re gonna change it up. It gives you an edge,” he said in an interview after the news conference. Joel was introduced by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who called the singer a “worldwide superstar who values most that he is a hometown hero,” citing Joel’s participation in the Concert for New York City after the Sept. 11 attacks and the 12-12-12 concert for Hurricane Sandy relief. The Bronx-born Joel first performed at MSG in 1978. Since then, he has played at the venue 46 times. “I said it in ‘78, and I’ll say it again, there is no better venue in the world,” he said.

Free tickets part of settlement Hundreds of thousands of people who attended concerts at a New Jersey amphitheater over eight years would get free tickets and discount coupons under a preliminary court settlement reached with promoter Live Nation. Two New Jersey men sued Live Nation in 2009, claiming it was illegal to tack on a $6 parking fee to each ticket at PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel when not all concertgoers drive. They also charged Live Nation’s “no-fee” promotion was

deceptive. A federal judge in Trenton approved the preliminary settlement. In court papers filed recently, Live Nation estimated the proposed settlement would affect about 363,000 people who attended shows at the arts center between June 2003 and June 2011. Those people would each be entitled to three free lawn tickets to a concert in the next four years, as well as $5 discount coupons for when they buy tickets. Lawn tickets for a concert featuring Journey and the Steve Miller Band next June were listed for $33.75 to $48.50 on Live Nation’s website Tuesday. “We think it’s fair value for the claims, and we think that given the fact that these people are all concertgoers, they will appreciate the settlement,” said Lee Squitieri, an attorney for one of the plaintiffs.

Gucci Mane indicted on gun charges Atlanta-based rapper Gucci Mane is facing federal firearms charges after authorities say he was found in possession of guns on two occasions. The U.S. attorney’s office in Atlanta said Tuesday that Gucci Mane, whose real name is Radric Davis, faces two counts of possession of a firearm by a felon. Prosecutors say Davis, who’s 33, was indicted by a federal grand jury Nov. 19. Prosecutors say Davis, who was a felon at the time, was found to have a gun on Sept. 12. and was found to have a different gun in his possession two days later, on Sept. 14. Prosecutors say he acted erratically and threatened people on both occasions. Davis’ lawyer Drew Findling said he is reviewing information in the case and then will decide what action to take.

This undated image provided by Amazon.com shows the so-called Prime Air unmanned aircraft project that Amazon is working on in its research and development labs.

Amazon’s delivery drones might not fly By SCOTT MAYEROWITZ The Associated Press NEW YORK – Jeff Bezos’ idea to let self-guided drones deliver packages may be too futuristic for Washington to handle. The Amazon CEO is working on a way to use the small aircraft to get parcels to customers in 30 minutes or less. While flight technology makes it feasible, U.S. law and society’s attitude toward drones haven’t caught up with Bezos’ vision. Amazon.com Inc. said it’s working on the so-called Prime Air unmanned aircraft project, but it will take years to advance the technology and for the Federal Aviation Administration to create the necessary rules. The project was first reported by CBS’ “60 Minutes” on Sunday night, hours before millions of shoppers turned to their computers to hunt Cyber Monday bargains. Bezos said in the interview that while his octocopters look like something out of science fiction, there’s no reason they can’t be used as delivery vehicles. Bezos said the drones can carry packages that weigh up to five pounds, which covers about 86 percent of the items Amazon delivers. The drones the company is testing have a range of about 10 miles, which Bezos noted could cover a significant portion of the population in urban areas. Bezos told “60 Minutes” the project could become a working service in four or five years. Unlike the drones used by the military, Bezos’ proposed flying machines won’t need humans to control them remotely. Amazon’s drones would re-

ceive a set of GPS coordinates and automatically fly to them, presumably avoiding buildings, power lines and other obstacles. Delivery drones raise a host of concerns, from air traffic safety to homeland security and privacy. There are technological and legal obstacles, too – similar to Google’s experimental driverless car. How do you design a machine that safely navigates the roads or skies without hitting anything? And, if an accident occurs, who’s legally liable? Delivering packages by drone might be impossible in a city such as Washington, D.C., which has many no-fly zones. But technology entrepreneur and futurist Ray Kurzweil notes that “technology has always been a double edged sword.” “Fire kept us warm and cooked our food but also was used to burn down our villages,” Kurzweil said. “It’s fascinating as an idea and probably very hard to execute,” said Tim Bajarin, an analyst with Creative Strategies who sees Bezos as an unconventional thinker. “If he could really deliver something you order within 30 minutes, he would rewrite the rules of online retail.” Amazon already has done that once. In 1995, with investments from family and friends, Bezos began operating Amazon as an online bookseller out of a Seattle garage. Over nearly two decades, Amazon grew to become the world’s largest online retailer, selling everything from shoes to groceries to diapers and power tools. Amazon spends heavily on growing its business, improving order fulfillment and expanding into new

areas. Those investments have come at the expense of consistent profitability, but investors largely have been forgiving, focusing on the company’s long-term promise and double-digit revenue growth. The company spent almost $2.9 billion in shipping last year, accounting for 4.7 percent of its net sales. There is no prohibition on flying drones for recreational use, but since 2007, the Federal Aviation Administration has said they can’t be used for commercial purposes. “The technology has moved forward faster than the law has kept pace,” said Brendan Schulman, special counsel at the law firm Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP. Schulman is challenging that regulation before a federal administrative law judge on behalf of a client who was using a radio-controlled aircraft to shoot video for an advertising agency. Autonomous flights like Amazon is proposing, without somebody at the controls, are also prohibited. The FAA is slowly moving forward with guidelines on commercial drone use. Last year, Congress directed the agency to grant drones access to U.S. skies by September 2015. The agency already has missed several key deadlines and said the process would take longer than Congress expected. The FAA plans to propose rules next year that could allow limited use of drones weighing up to 55 pounds. Those rules are expected to include major restrictions on where drones can fly, posing significant limits on what Amazon could do. Many of the commercial advances in drone use have come out of Europe, Australia and Japan.

DETROIT – The holiday weekend was good to U.S. automakers, as November sales rose 9 percent to beat strong numbers from a year ago. Sales ran at an annual rate of 16.4 million cars and trucks last month, making it the best rate of the year according to Autodata Corp. “Industry sales in November picked up after Thanksgiving, contributing to the best sales pace of the year,” said Bill Fay, Toyota division group vice president and general manager. Chrysler’s U.S. sales rose 16 percent in November, while General Motors posted a 14 percent gain. Nissan sales rose 11 percent, while Toyota was up 10 percent. Ford notched a 7 percent gain, and Hyundai sales rose just under 5 percent. Of major automakers, only Volkswagen and Honda reported sales drops. VW brand sales were down 16 percent, and Honda sales were off less than 1 percent. Kurt McNeil, GM’s U.S. sales chief, attributed the strong sales pace to better conditions for consumers. “The economy is creating jobs and household wealth,” he said. “Energy costs are dropping, and credit is available and affordable. All of this bodes well for future growth.”

Conscious Cup buys Cook Street Coffee BARRINGTON – Conscious Cup Coffee Roasters has acquired the business and assets of Cook Street Coffee in Barrington. “We’re excited to join the Barrington community and for the growth prospects we see in Cook Street Coffee,” said Michael Shipley, partner with Conscious Cup Coffee Roasters. “We’ll keep the Cook Street Coffee name active because we like that it’s a reflection of the community.

Home prices rise 0.2 percent in October

AP photo

In this March 27 photo, the 2014 Jeep Cherokee Limited is presented at the New York International Auto Show. Chrysler said Tuesday that its November U.S. sales rose 16 percent. The company sold more than 10,000 Cherokees in the small crossover SUV’s first full month on the market. Small crossover SUVs such as the new Jeep Cherokee once again were the stars for the month. The crossovers continued to gobble up market share during November, gaining two full percentage points over a year ago to 15.5 percent of U.S. sales, said Erich Merkle, Ford’s top sales analyst.

The gains came at the expense of small and midsize cars. Midsize cars’ share of the market fell one point to 14.5 percent, while small cars dropped a point to around 20 percent, Merkle said. Ford and GM said competitors

8IN BRIEF New look for Algonquin Wendy’s unveiled ALGONQUIN – The Wendy’s at 245 S. Randall Road, Algonquin, was remodeled using an a new interior and exterior design as part of a brand transformation to reinvent the Wendy’s restaurant environment, the restaurant said in a news release. “This restaurant has bold curb appeal and features a compelling, innovative interior and exterior design,” said John Zielinski, divisional vice president for Wendy’s International. “It’s very different from what our customers in Algonquin are used to, but we think they’ll really like the fresh look and feel of the new Wendy’s.” In 2013, Wendy’s wanted to re-image at least 100 company and 100 franchise restaurants in North America. In addition, Wendy’s offered $10 million in cash incentives for franchisees to remodel existing Wendy’s restaurants. Wendy’s conducted nationwide research and studied every aspect of the customer’s experience in redesigning its restaurants. Based on this feedback, Wendy’s completely overhauled the interiors and exteriors of the building in Algonquin. The new building features large windows, seating at booths and tables, lounge-style seating, and a Wi-Fi bar. Digital menu boards, a new ordering process, a TV, fireplace, Coca-Cola Freestyle self-serve soda machine and patios completed the transformation.

Millions of Americans choose to give back to their communities by making donations to their favorite charities each year. In fact, according to the Giving USA Foundation and Center of Philanthropy at Indiana University, charitable contributions totaled more than $316 billion in 2012. Qualifying organizations are those that have been granted tax-exempt charity status by the IRS and include churches, religious organizations and various organizations that promote education, health and other social services to benefit the general public. While gifts of cash are probably the most common gift, many individuals find that it is beneficial to make charitable gifts in other ways. When determining a charitable-gifting strategy, it’s important to keep in mind that there are annual limits on the amount you can claim as a charitable deduction for tax purposes, depending on the types of charities you donate to and the type of assets gifted. • Direct gifts of appreciated securities. This method conserves the donor’s cash while helping to avoid capital-gains tax on the sale of the appreciated security. Generally, you may deduct the market value of the securities (determined at the time of the gift) on your currentyear tax return. • Direct gifts of life insurance. You may choose to transfer a life insurance policy to an organization if the life insurance coverage is no longer required. Transferring the policy to an organization may provide benefits for you and the organization. If the policy has a cash value, the organization might be able to borrow funds from the policy, and

Chick-fil-A working to remove dyes, corn syrup NEW YORK – Chick-fil-A said it’s removing high-fructose corn syrup from its white buns and artificial dyes from its sauces and dressings as part of a push to improve its ingredients. The fast-food chicken chain said the reformulated buns are being tested in about 200 Georgia locations, while the sauces and dressings will be tested starting early next year. It said it also removed a yellow dye from its chicken soup and that the new recipe should be in all restaurants by the end of this month. It’s also testing a new peanut oil, with hopes of a rollout early next year.

FINANCE Timothy J. O’Connor you might be entitled to an income-tax deduction in the amount of the policy’s value. • Charitable remainder trust. This technique lets you make a charitable contribution of assets (property or securities) into a trust in which the assets can be sold without generating current capital-gains tax. You may receive an income stream from the trust during your lifetime and receive a current income-tax deduction based on the present value of the future benefit to an organization. The organization receives the assets in the trust, usually upon the donor’s death. • Charitable lead trust. This type of trust is the opposite of a charitable remainder trust. An income stream is provided to the charity, while you transfer the remaining interest to your family. A charitable lead trust does not generally entitle the donor to an income-tax deduction in the year the trust is established. However, any income generated by the donated assets will be reported by the trust and not the donor. The trust is then entitled to a charitable deduction for any income it pays out to the charity. Unlike a charitable remainder trust, a charitable lead trust does not help you avoid capital-gains tax. The benefit of the trust is in the ability to give the assets to heirs at a substantially discounted value. • Charitable gift annuities. In this arrangement, the organization promises to pay the donor a constant income

stream – an annuity – in exchange for a charitable gift. A portion of the value of the gifted assets is tax deductible to the donor. • Pooled income funds. A charitable nonprofit organization can create and maintain a pooled income fund consisting of assets contributed by many different donors. An organization pays the net income the fund earns to the various donors in proportion to their respective interests in the fund. The income depends on the fund’s performance and is taxable to donors. • Private charitable foundations, sup-

porting organizations and community foundations. Creating a foundation lets your family control the allocation and investment of contributions made to an organization. The entire contribution must be used for the foundation’s charitable purposes. You may structure a private foundation as a corporation, managed by a board of directors, or as a trust, managed by trustees. To help you determine what giving alternatives might be a good fit for your personal financial and overall tax situation, talk with your financial adviser and tax/legal professionals for guidance in initiating a charitable-giving strategy. • Timothy J.

More than 10,000 Jeep Cherokees sold last month rose to 212,060, up from 186,505. GM was led by larger vehicles, with its top-selling Chevy Silverado pickup posting a 12 percent gain. The GMC Sierra pickup saw sales rise 23 percent. Large SUVs, such as the Chevrolet Tahoe, also had big sales, with the Tahoe up 23 percent. Big cars also were up. The Chevy Impala posted a 20 percent gain, while the Cadillac XTS was up 42 percent. The double-digit pickup gains were repeated at Ford and Chrysler. Sales of Ford’s F-Series, the best-selling vehicles in the U.S., rose 16 percent to 65,501. For Chrysler, sales of the Ram pickup increased by 22 percent. With the success of the Cherokee, Chrysler took advantage of the dramatic shift in the market toward smaller SUVs. The Cherokee’s sculpted look annoyed Jeep purists. But Schuster said

• AUTOS Continued from page E1 offered big discounts on their small and midsize cars and predicted that trend would continue. The Cherokee notched the rare achievement of sales of more than 10,000 in its first full month on the market. “That is a big number,” said Jeff Schuster, senior vice president of auto sales forecasting for LMC Automotive, an industry consulting firm. Overall, Chrysler sold more than 142,000 vehicles last month for its best November in six years, up from nearly 123,000 a year ago. Sales of Jeeps rose 30 percent, and the brand had its best November ever. GM and Chrysler reported their best November sales since 2007. GM sales

the styling may have paid off. “It sends a signal that the Cherokee, which has been polarizing in the industry, may be appealing to consumers more than critics,” he said. Chrysler delayed Cherokee shipments for several months while engineers tinkered with its new nine-speed automatic transmission to make it shift more smoothly. Dealers didn’t have a normal inventory until mid-November, the company said. Ahead of the reports, industry analysts estimated that total U.S. sales rose 3.6 percent to 6.3 percent for November. That’s slower growth than earlier in the year, mainly because sales in November of 2012 were the best in nearly five years. Superstorm Sandy hit in October last year, delaying some East Coast sales until November.

Judith Viorst, a novelist and poet, said, “Strength is the capacity to break a chocolate bar into four pieces with your bare hands -- and then to eat just one of the pieces.” Strength at the bridge table is the capacity to stop an opponent with four good trumps from winning more than one trick with them. However, doing that may require imagination. In today’s deal, South is in six hearts. West leads the spade queen. South takes the trick with his ace and cashes the heart ace. East’s spade discard is a bad blow. How can South recover? It is unusual to bid a slam after a single raise, but the South hand has few losers. His three-club rebid was a help-suit game-try. And when North jumped to four hearts to say that he had club assistance, it was a fair gamble for South to bid the slam. There seem to be two unavoidable trump losers. However, if South can get his trump length reduced, he might be able to endplay West. This requires inding the West hand with exactly

3-4-4-2 distribution. Declarer plays a diamond to dummy’s ace, ruffs a diamond in his hand, cashes the spade king, ruffs his last spade on the board, trumps another diamond, cashes the club ace, leads a club to dummy’s king, and ruffs the last diamond. Everyone is down to three cards. South retains the kingjack of hearts and a low club. West has three trumps. So, when declarer leads his last club, West is forced to ruff and play away from his heart queen. Six hearts bid and made!

Don’t ignore personal problems because you are too busy helping others. Finding a balance between business and domestic responsibilities is necessary.

Re-establish a connection with someone from your past who can be of help now. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don’t get frustrated.
