Hacker group targets Woodstock sergeant Aggressive Twitter campaign calls for Chip Amati to be fired By CHELSEA McDOUGALL WOODSTOCK – An international hacker group caught wind of an ongoing scandal at the Woodstock Police Department and has launched an aggressive Twitter campaign to get a sergeant there fired. On its Twitter page, Anon-

ymous is asking its 1.8 million followers to call City Hall and the Woodstock Police Department and demand that action be taken against Sgt. Charles “Chip” Amati over allegations that he asked a young girl for “sexy pictures.” Amati, a 24-year veteran of the department, was given a 30-day unpaid suspension af-

ter an investigation revealed he sent the inappropriate text message to a 12-year-old girl, and that he misused police equipment. “I am completely convinced in my mind that it was not for sexually gratifying reasons,” Police Chief Robert Lowen said. “… I looked at all of the information from

the [Illinois State Police] investigation – previous emails, texts back and forth. I’m convinced … this wasn’t an ongoing grooming situation.” The Illinois State Police investigation also found Amati had misused LEADS – Law Enforcement Agencies Data System – to check the background of the girl’s mother,

Misusing the system in Illinois constitutes official misconduct, a Class 3 felony punishable by two to five years in prison. The McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office de-

GUN LAW EDUCATION Police prepare to interact with more armed citizens By CHELSEA McDOUGALL • New gun legislation signed earlier this year will not only usher in a slew of changes for gun owners, but also for law enforcement who are not used to everyday citizens carrying concealed weapons. The state agency tasked with training officers is developing videos hoping to guide that transition along. The Illinois Law Enforcement Training and Standards Board filmed three

Pearl Harbor survivor thrives as volunteer By AUDREY McAVOY The Associated Press PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii – Herb Weatherwax cruises the open-air grounds of the visitors center at Pearl Harbor on a motorized scooter dubbed “Herb’s Hot Rod.” When a woman notices his blue and white cap embroidered with the words “Pearl Harbor Survivor,” he coaxes her over. “Come get a picture,” Weatherwax says. Her family surrounds his scooter to pose for a snapshot and shake his hand. The 96-year-old charms visitors in a similar fashion each of the three days a week he volunteers at a memorial for the USS Arizona, a battleship that sank in the 1941 Japanese attack. The retired electrician is one of four former servicemen who lived through the aerial bombing and now greet people at the historic site. People like hearing stories directly from the survivors, Weatherwax says. And he enjoys meeting people

Herb Weatherwax poses for a photo Nov. 22 with a group of Hauula Elementary School sixth-graders in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The 96-yearold retired electrician is one of four Pearl Harbor survivors who volunteers to greet visitors at the historic site. Saturday is the 72nd anniversary of the 1941 attack by Japan on Pearl Harbor. from around the globe – just the other day he met visitors from New Zealand, China and Texas. He joked he wants his photograph “in every home in the world.” “This is my reason to continue to keep going,” he says.

“Otherwise, it’s time for me to say goodbye.” Weatherwax was a 24-yearold Army private living in Honolulu when he heard loud explosions the morning of Dec. 7, 1941. He saw the sky fill with black smoke and heard

anti-aircraft guns firing. When he turned on the radio, he learned Japan was bombing Oahu and all military personnel were to immediately report to their stations. He saw the USS Arizona enveloped in flames and the USS Oklahoma turned on its side as he headed to his post. Twenty-one ships were sunk or heavily damaged that day while 320 aircraft were damaged or destroyed. Some 2,400 sailors, Marines and soldiers were killed. Pam Johnson, a sixth-grade teacher in a rural community outside Honolulu, said meeting Weatherwax transformed her students. She had been struggling to get the 12-year-olds from Hauula Elementary School interested in research. After meeting Weatherwax, several students told her they wanted to look up Pearl Harbor. Weatherwax ignited in them a desire to learn, she said. “That’s a huge connection,” she says. Her students wouldn’t have developed

this interest just by walking through the exhibition halls at the visitors’ center or even the memorial for the Arizona, Johnson says. “This is the best classroom so far this year,” she says. At their peak in the early 1990s, 21 survivors volunteered, says National Park Service historian Daniel Martinez. Meeting a survivor enlarges or enhances the experience of coming to Pearl Harbor for many, Martinez says. It can give people a tangible connection to meet someone who was on-site when the bombing happened. Their numbers are dwindling, however. The three others who remain are also in their 90s. During the week, Weatherwax is joined by Sterling Cale, who was a hospital corpsman assigned to the shipyard dispensary in 1941, and Alfred Rodrigues, who was stationed at the mouth of Pearl Harbor. On the weekend, USS Pennsylvania survivor Everett Hyland greets visitors.

By SETH BORENSTEIN The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Happy or sad? Content or bored? And how many times did you smile yesterday? A panel of experts thinks Uncle Sam should be more in touch with our feelings. By gauging happiness, there’d be more to consider than cold hard cash when deciding matters that affect daily lives, according to a report

Count on Me...

this week from the National Academy of Sciences, which advises the government. The panel of economists, psychologists and other experts assembled by the academy recommended that federal statistics and surveys, which normally deal with income, spending, health and housing, include a few extra questions on happiness. “You want to know how people are doing?” said panel chairman Arthur Stone,

a professor of psychology at New York’s Stony Brook University. “One of things you may want to do is ask them.” Asking how people feel can be as important as how much they are spending, Stone said. For example, economists have something they call the “misery index” which adds the unemployment and inflation rates, but doesn’t include how people feel. If you want to know misery, the question to ask is


“how much suffering is going on,” Stone said. The panel suggests a series of questions to measure daily happiness and general well-being, asking how often you smiled, were stressed, laughed or were in pain. Example questions ranged from a simple yes-no “Yesterday, did you spend time with friends or family?” to a more complex 1-10 rating for “Overall, how satisfied are you with your life nowadays?”

New consumer tips for Obama’s fixer-upper site By RICARDO ALONSO–ZALDIVAR The Associated Press WASHINGTON – It doesn’t rival Amazon and Travelocity, but President Barack Obama’s much-maligned health insurance website finally seems to be working reasonably well most of the time. Still, consumers are well-advised to verify, not just trust. More than 3.7 million people visited this week – and it didn’t crash, administration spokeswoman Julie Bataille deadpanned Friday on a call with reporters. Officials say 29,000 people enrolled the first two days of the week, exceeding total signups for the 36 states served by the federal site during October, the month of its prob-

lem-plagued launch. Online Spanish-language sign-ups, delayed because of initial problems, will finally go live this weekend in a “soft launch” to tease out any lurking glitches. Consumers around the country will be able to use the new feature at Overall, work has shifted from zapping technical gremlins that frustrated consumers to cleaning up garbled enrollment files that the system has been delivering to insurers. While not calling it an “error rate,” Bataille says mistakes on those files are now affecting 1 in 10 transactions with insurers, down from an estimated 25 percent. She still recommends that consumers verify enrollment with their insurer, and – importantly –

pay their first month’s premium by Dec. 31. The web is now the gateway to subsidized private health insurance for people who don’t have job-based coverage. As Obama invites consumers back to take a second look, here are some of the changes you can expect:

SPEED AND AVAILABILITY Independent testers question the blazing Internet speeds claimed by techies at the Health and Human Services Department, and some of the state websites, but confirm there’s been noticeable progress. “The trend is in the right direction ... but there are still things they can do to make the user experience better,” said Michael Smith, a vice presi-

is incorporated in his company’s testing. Compuware says availability – a measure of consumers’ success accessing the site – is up to 98 percent, close to the standard for health care industry sites.

dent of engineering at Compuware Corp., which helps companies monitor the technical performance of their websites. As of Friday morning, the number of states where consumers are experiencing unacceptably long wait times had been cut to 9, down from 26 states in late October. Conversely, Compuware now rates 17 states as “acceptable,” up from just six in October. Compuware defines “unacceptable” as more than 8 seconds average response time to load the home page. The government claims a response time of less than 1 second. But Smith says that is likely being measured from computers with fast Internet connections and doesn’t account for the experience of consumers with less than ideal access, which

WINDOW-SHOPPING Many consumers were puzzled and frustrated when the federal website went live because it would not let them browse health plans without first setting up an account. That’s the opposite of how e-commerce generally works. Most websites ask consumers to open an account after they’re ready to purchase. On Monday, HHS announced the deployment of a window-shopping function that lets prospective custom-

ers see plans and prices in their area, including previously unavailable details such as deductibles and cost-sharing, as well as provider networks.

RESET BUTTON People who got stuck in the system can now zap away their old applications and start over. To do that, you log into your account, select the application in progress and hit “remove.” You have to follow that by closing and reopening your web browser. Then you log back in and start a new application. The reset process may not be entirely foolproof because HHS advises consumers to reach out to the call center at 800-318-2596 if they have trouble.

Homeowners and helpers dig out what they can from a mountain of debris Nov. 19 in Washington, Ill., after more than 1,000 homes were devastated by a tornado that passed through Nov. 17. Washington’s Mayor Gary Manier said at a community meeting Thursday the city has lost nearly half its property tax value because of homes that were destroyed or damaged by last month’s storms.

Washington mayor says tornado slashed town’s property tax values The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – The mayor of the tornado-wrecked central Illinois community of Washington said the city has lost nearly half its property tax value since last month’s storms destroyed or damaged about 1,000 homes. Gary Manier’s comments came during a community meeting Thursday evening with City Administrator Tim Gleason that was attended by

about 200 residents, according to a report in The Peoria Journal Star. Manier said early estimates show that 47 percent of Washington’s property tax value was lost in the Nov. 17 tornado. Officials said that would most likely hurt the community’s school district, which relies on tax revenue for its budget. The two dozen tornadoes that twisted across the state were blamed for killing seven

people, including one person in Washington. Only about 20 percent of the debris from the EF-4 tornado that hit Washington has been cleared so far, Gleason said. Washington, which has about 16,000 residents, is about 10 miles east of Peoria. The tornado that touched down there had winds that reached up to 190 mph and was on the ground for more than 46 miles.

gos said that the storm was tapering off quickly late Friday afternoon and that the weather service expected no more than an inch or so of new snow would fall between late Friday afternoon and early Saturday, when the storm was expected to leave the state. She also said that temperatures would dip into the single digits Friday night and that Saturday they would get no

higher than the high teens or low 20s. The storm prompted officials to declare a state of emergency for at least one county – Jackson County, according to The Carbondale Southern Illinoisan, which reported that the snow, sleet and ice had rendered some primary roads in the county treacherous and left some secondary roads impassable.

8STATE BRIEF Storm pelts southern Illinois with snow, ice HARRISBURG – A storm that marched across Illinois was on its way out late Friday, but not before it dumped a foot of snow and more in some areas, had police scrambling to respond to dozens of accidents and forced scores of schools to remain closed.

Pam Haynes, a legal secretary who works in the state’s attorney’s office, told The Joliet Herald-News she was happy with the new contract. “I just want to thank everyone for being so supportive,” she said of the business owners who brought picketing workers coffee and hot chocolate during their walkout. “They stuck with us.” The new deal is retroactive to December 2012 and applies to five contracts, all of which were overwhelmingly ratified. But the contracts still need to be approved by the Will County board, which is set to consider the agreements Dec. 19.

achieves those goals.” The new deal includes a 4.5 percent cost of living increase and changes to the suburban Chicago county’s pay scale, which will also increase how much money workers earn. But it also raised health insurance costs that employees pay, in some cases doubling the premiums. About 1,000 employees walked off the job Nov. 18, including those in the health department, nursing home, highway department, sheriff’s office, court system and the jail. Several days into the walkout, about 30 workers were ordered back to their jobs by the National Labor Relations board, which said the employees were essential. Those workers included 911 dispatchers, deputy coroners, communicable disease investigators, health depart-

Icy weather pummels Southwest Chinese firm paid By NOMAAN MERCHANT The Associated Press DALLAS – Freezing rain and stinging winds slammed the Southwest Friday and made a strangely blank landscape out of normally sundrenched North Texas: mostly empty highways covered in a sometimes impassable frost, closed schools and businesses, and millions of residents hunkered down for icy conditions expected to last through the weekend. Earlier this week, many in Texas were basking in springlike temperatures that hit the 80s. But by Thursday, Texas was facing the same wintry blast that has slammed much of the U.S., bringing frigid temperatures, ice and snow. The weather forced the cancellation of Sunday’s Dallas Marathon, which was expected to draw 25,000 runners, some of whom had trained for months. A quarter of a million customers in

Icy conditions make for light traffic Friday on the highways in Dallas as snow and freezing rain blanketed normally sunny North Texas. North Texas were left without power, and many businesses told employees to stay home to avoid the slick roads. Rob Yates, 44, of the Dallas suburb of Rowlett, had trained for four months to participate in the half-marathon Sunday – his first time competing at that distance.

WASHINGTON – A longtime adviser to the U.S. Director of National Intelligence has resigned after the government learned he has worked since 2010 as a paid consultant for Huawei Technologies Ltd., the Chinese technology company the U.S. has condemned as an espionage threat, The Associated Press has learned. Theodore H. Moran, an expert on China’s international investment and professor at Georgetown University, had served since 2007 as adviser to the intelligence director’s advisory panel on foreign investment in the U.S. He also was an adviser to the National Intelligence Council, a group of 18 senior analysts and policy experts who provide U.S. spy agencies with judgments on international issues.

The case highlights the ongoing fractious relationship between the U.S. government and Huawei, China’s leading developer of telephone and Internet infrastructure, which has been condemned in the U.S. as a potential national security threat. Moran, who had a security clearance granting him access to sensitive materials, was forced to withdraw from those roles after Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., complained in September to the intelligence director, James Clapper, that Moran’s work on an international advisory council for Huawei “compromises his ability to advise your office.” Moran, who earlier had declined to discuss the matter, said in a statement Friday to the AP that he told the National Intelligence Council in 2010 about his membership on Huawei’s advisory panel.

But Yates, originally from near Manchester, England, said he stayed inside with his wife. “It’s kind of unusual weather for Dallas, so they’re just having fun with it,” Yates said. “Me and my wife – adults are not particularly impressed with it.” Friday’s storm stretched from South Texas, where anxious residents bagged outdoor plants to protect them from the cold, through the Midwest and Ohio Valley and up into northern New England and the Canadian Maritimes. In California, four people died of hypothermia in the San Francisco Bay Area as the region dealt with freezing temperatures, according to the Santa Clara County coroner’s office. Rosie Dominguez, a spokeswoman for the office, confirmed the deaths and their cause but provided no further information.

South Africa begins life without iconic leader Mandela By CHRISTOPHER TORCHIA

A child looks up at a giant bronze statue of former president Nelson Mandela on Friday at Mandela Square in Johannesburg, South Africa. Flowers were placed on the square after Mandela died Thursday. He was 95.

The Associated Press JOHANNESBURG – What next for South Africa? This racially charged country that, on Nelson Mandela’s watch, inspired the world by embracing reconciliation in all-race elections in 1994 is again in the global spotlight after the loss of such a towering historical figure. It is a time not just for grief and gratitude, but also a clear-eyed assessment of national strengths and shortcomings in a future without a man who was a guide and comfort to so many. “It’s a new beginning,” said Kyle Redford, one of many outside the home of the anti-apartheid leader who became the nation’s first black president. “The loss of a legend is going to force us to come together once again.” He acknowledged that there is a “sense of what next:

to meet the heady expectations propelling the country two decades ago. Peaceful elections and relatively harmonious race relations define today’s South Africa; so do crime, corruption and economic inequality.

Where do we go? What do we do? And how do we do it?” Mandela’s resolve rubbed off on many of his compatriots, though such conviction is tempered by the reality that his vision of a “rainbow nation” failed, almost inevitably,

Mandela remained a powerful symbol in the hopeful, uncharted period after apartheid, even when he left the presidency, retired from public life and shuttled in and out of hospitals as a protracted illness eroded his once-robust

frame. He became a moral anchor, so entwined with the national identity that some wondered whether the country would slide into chaos after his death. “Does it spell doomsday and disaster for us?” retired Archbishop Desmond Tutu asked rhetorically Friday before declaring that no, the country will not disintegrate. “The sun will rise tomorrow and the next day and the next,” said Tutu, who like Mandela won the Nobel Peace Prize for fighting apartheid and promoting reconciliation. “It may not appear as bright as yesterday, but life will carry on.” A series of violent events since last year intensified worries over the state of the nation. The August 2012 shooting deaths of 34 striking miners by police at the Marikana platinum mine recalled, for some South Africans, state

killings under apartheid. In February, a Mozambican taxi driver was dragged from a South African police vehicle and later died in a jail cell. At the same time, tourism surged. Despite labor strife and credit-rating downgrades, resource-rich South Africa hosted Brazil, Russia, India and China at the “BRICS” summit in March. It has the biggest economy in Africa and aspires to continental leadership. Mandela’s death will not destabilize race relations in the country, contrary to some fears, according to the South African Institute of Race Relations. “For many years now, South Africans have got along with one another largely peacefully without Mr. Mandela having been active in the political sphere,” Lerato Moloi, the institute’s head of research, said.

8WORLD BRIEFS Thousands seek refuge at Central African airport BANGUI, Central African Republic – Thousands of Christian civilians sought refuge at an airport guarded by French soldiers Friday, fleeing from the mostly Muslim ex-rebels with machetes and guns who rule the country a day after the worst violence to hit the chaotic capital in nine months. When several French helicopters landed at the airport, people sang with joy as they banged on plastic buckets and waved rags into the air in celebration. Thursday’s clashes left at least 280 dead, according to national radio.

Thousands in UK face another day of flooding LONDON – Hundreds of people in Britain mopped up flooded homes on Friday after a powerful storm that scoured northern Europe with hurricane-force gusts kicked up the biggest tid-

al surge in 60 years, swamping stretches of shoreline. The rising seas prompted evacuations along the eastern English coast, with 1,400 properties flooded and at least a half-dozen communities at great risk of exceptionally high tides and large waves.

Russia: Pilot in crash may have had fake license MOSCOW – The Russian pilot who sent a Boeing 737 into a near-vertical dive, killing all 50 people on board, might have had a fake license, Russian investigators said Friday. Investigative Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin said his team believes that some pilots working for small regional airlines in Russia have not been properly trained but managed to get fake licenses in centers certified by the country’s aviation agency. No criminal charges have been filed yet in the Nov. 17 crash.

Woodstock City Hall got 50 phone calls over matter • SERGEANT Continued from page A1 The phone numbers to City Hall and the Woodstock Police Department are in quite a few of the tweets. By 11 a.m., City Hall estimated it received about 50 calls from all over the country, while Lowen said the police department only received three calls and a handful of emails. Some tweets, many of which have been retweeted – or shared – hundreds of times, have been ominous. “FIRE CHARLES AMATI. If not, EXPECT US. #CharlesAmati,” one message read. “… If he isn’t fired or punished in a more sensible manner we shall riot, in a polite way of course,” said another. Other Tweets were directed at Amati’s personal Facebook and Twitter accounts, which since have been deactivated. Several messages called on the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office to further investigate the matter. Anonymous is credited for throwing into the national spotlight a largely ignored rape case in Steubenville, Ohio. There, the group staged protests, and through its social media campaign, eventually the major news outlets began to take notice. Two teenage boys later were convicted of raping a girl who was too drunk to consent.

Despite the calls from Twitter, the Woodstock Police Department and City Hall stand by Amati’s punishment. Lowen maintains that Amati’s infractions were not grounds for termination. Aside from firing Amati, City Manager Roscoe Stelford explained that 30 days was the most they could suspend the sergeant based on a state statute for non-home rule communities. The matter went before an Oct. 28 closed door meeting of the Police and Fire Commissioners. The two-person board acted on a recommendation from the police chief and City Hall. “He’s a 24-year, experienced officer with no disciplinary record at all,” Stelford said. “This is an isolated incident. There were no criminal charges brought against him, so in light of that, a 30-day suspension is all the city can impose.” Earlier this week, Amati was removed as the department’s spokesman, and he previously was stripped of his position as LEADS coordinator. He remains in charge of the department’s records division. Records show his current annual salary is $93,314, not accounting for overtime or lost revenue from his suspension. Amati could not be reached for comment.

State funeral planned to start Wednesday • MANDELA Continued from page A1 festival where Radebe filmed scenes to share with his family. “I’m sorry, I’m too emotional. The tears flow too easily,” said the balding 60-yearold, his eyes sparkling with tears as he reflected on how South Africa’s race relations have improved – “not perfect, but much better” – compared with his childhood in the black township. “This is a celebration of the death, because we knew he was an old man,” Radebe said. “He brought a lot of changes to our community, because I grew up in apartheid. It was a very bad situation.” At a service in Cape Town, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, a Nobel laureate like Mandela and himself a monumental figure in the struggle against

apartheid, called on South Africa’s 51 million people to embrace the values of unity and democracy that Mandela embodied. “God, thank you for the gift of Madiba,” Tutu said, using Mandela’s clan name. “All of us here in many ways amazed the world, a world that was expecting us to be devastated by a racial conflagration,” Tutu said as he recalled how Mandela helped unite South Africa as it dismantled the cruel system of white minority rule, and prepared for all-race elections in 1994. In those elections, Mandela, who spent 27 years in prison, became South Africa’s first black president. At Mandela’s home in the leafy Johannesburg neighborhood of Houghton, where he spent his last sickly months, a multiracial crowd paid tribute. “What I liked most about

Mandela was his forgiveness, his passion, his diversity, the impact of what he did,” said Ariel Sobel, a white man who was born in 1993, a year before Mandela was elected president. “I am not worried about what will happen next. We will continue as a nation. We knew this was coming. We are prepared.” As a dozen doves were released into the sky, people sang tribal songs, the national anthem, God Bless Africa – the anthem of the anti-apartheid struggle – and Christian hymns. Many wore the traditional garb of the nation’s Zulu, Xhosa and other ethnic groups. “He will rule the universe with God,” proclaimed a poster raised aloft by a mourner. South African President Jacob Zuma announced a schedule of ceremonies expected to draw huge numbers of world dignitaries and ordi-

nary mourners. Mandela’s body is to lie in state from Wednesday through Friday after a memorial service at the same Johannesburg stadium where he made his last public appearance in 2010 at the closing ceremony of the soccer World Cup. He is to be buried in his rural childhood village of Qunu on Dec. 15, after a state funeral. “We call upon all our people to gather in halls, churches, mosques, temples, synagogues and in their homes for prayer services and meditation, reflecting on the life of Madiba and his contribution to our country and the world,” Zuma said. The White House said President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama would visit South Africa next week to participate in memorial events, although no precise dates were given.

N. Korea deports U.S. tourist The ASSOCIATED PRESS SEOUL, South Korea – North Korea on Saturday deported an elderly U.S. tourist, apparently ending the saga of Merrill Newman’s return to the North six decades after he advised South Korean guerrillas still loathed by Pyongyang. North Korea made the decision because the 85-year-old Newman, who was detained since late October, apologized for his alleged crimes during the Korean War and because of his age and medical condition, according to the North’s official Korean Central News Agency.

“I am very glad to be on my way home,” a smiling Newman told reporters after arriving at the airport in Beijing from Pyongyang. “And I appreciate the tolerance the [North Korean] government has given me to be on my way.” “I feel good,” Newman said, adding with a laugh that the first thing he planned to do was “go home and see my wife.” U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, who is traveling in Seoul, welcomed the release and said he talked by phone with Newman in Beijing, offering him a ride home on Air Force Two. Biden said New-

man declined because of a direct flight to his home state of California later Saturday. Last month, Newman read from an awkwardly worded alleged confession that apologized for, among other things, killing North Koreans during the war. They were his first words since being taken off a plane Oct. 26 by North Korean authorities while preparing to leave the country after a 10day tour. Analysts questioned whether the statement was coerced, and former South Korean guerrillas who had worked with Newman and fought behind enemy lines during the 1950-53 Korean War disputed some of the details.

State police suggest telling officer in traffic stop about any weapons • GUN LAWS Continued from page A1 details of the new concealed-carry law and potential changes this may make in how they approach citizens who may be legally carrying a weapon,” said Larry Smith, deputy director of the training and standards board. “Police in this state have never seen that before.” But the new legislation might not be a far departure from current procedure, some law enforcement officials say. “We’re always concerned that someone’s carrying a firearm,” McHenry County Undersheriff Andrew Zinke said. “As a rule, police officers look at everyone as if they’re carrying a firearm.” The biggest change is that officers must now prepare that more people than ever before are carrying a weapon and could be carrying it legally. Preparing for changes in the legislation is a two-way street, experts say.

Source: McHenry County Sheriff’s Office In most cases, a 16-hour class is required before citizens can obtain a concealed-carry permit. The courses review basic firearm safety and rules, the law and places where weapons are prohibited. “My personal feeling on this is it should be at least a weeklong course – if not more,” said Tom Dorsch, a concealed-carry instructor at Crystal Lake’s On Target Range and Tactical Center. “... It’s their ethical responsibility to be as good as they can possibly be if they’re going to carry a gun.” A section of the Illinois State Police developed curriculum is dedicated to how permit holders should deal

with police. Dorsch, a former federal agent, says in a routine traffic stop, for example, it’s best to identify yourself as a permit holder and inform the officer that there is a weapon present. “That way it sets the officer at ease,” Dorsch said. “If you don’t identify yourself and [the officer] sees a gun under your coat or partially showing, then it gives him extra alarm, thinking ‘I’m dealing with an armed person who did not identify themselves.’ ” Under the law, it’s not required to disclose that unless the officer asks. The McHenry County Right To Carry Association heralded the legislation, but urged those to be as educated as possible before carrying a weapon. “If you’re going to exercise that right, be smart about it, be educated and be safe,” the association’s President Mickey Schuch said. “Know as much as you can so you’re not creating a harmful environment.”

Trees for Troops a perfect gesture The Northwest Herald Editorial Board offers this week’s thumbs up and thumbs down: Thumbs up: To Richardson Adventure Farm in Spring Grove for donating 55 Christmas trees to the Trees for Troops program. The trees will be distributed to more than 60 military bases across the United States. The Christmas SPIRIT Foundation program is a perfect seasonal gesture to show support for military families who endure many sacrifices around the holidays and throughout the year. Thumbs down: To the lack of challengers for elected incumbents in the March primary. At the federal level, Sen. Dick Durbin and Reps. Peter Roskam (R-6) and Randy Hultgren (R-14) do not have primary challengers. The same is true at the state level for Attorney General Lisa Madigan, Secretary of State Jesse White, Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka, Sen. Karen McConnaughay (R-33), and Reps. David McSweeney (R-52), Jack Franks (D-63) and Mike Tryon (R-66). In County Board races, five incumbents will escape the primary without a challenge. While political parties typically do not support challenging incumbents in their own party, we feel voters deserve to have more choices. Thumb up: To the Huntley football team for again collecting gifts for its Holiday Promise program and donating them to needy children ages 0 to 18 at the Grafton Food Pantry on Saturday. In 2012, the team donated more than 200 gifts to the program.


Keep mitts off ‘political activity’ It remains beyond dispute that there is much wrong with American campaign-finance law. So much of the so-called dark money. So little disclosure. Political campaign finances have entered a “black ops” stage in which tens of millions of dollars are being spent each year by faceless organizations. Since the U.S. Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision, we seem to know little about activist organizations and less about the people cutting the checks. The sum of such ignorance is a terrible weight on the integrity of American elections. How can we possibly know our candidates when we have little clue who is spending money to support them? We can think of just one thing worse than the current state of campaign-finance affairs, and that is having the Internal Revenue Service propose “fixes” to the system. The IRS has created new rules governing “political activity” as they apply to nonprofit organizations designated with a 501(c)(4) status. Among several changes, this “initial guidance” from the tax-collecting agency would forbid certain communications by the nonprofits during an election cycle, especially those that identify a certain candidate. However well-intentioned, such rules tread dangerously close to inhibiting free speech, especially as that speech has been defined by the high court in Citizens United. The greater problem, however, is the widespread concern that such rule changes in fact are not well-intentioned but constitute yet another IRS attempt to throttle conservative nonprofit groups.

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Explore transportation needs To the Editor: The McHenry County 2040 Long Range Transportation Plan Draft says an estimated 4,910 McHenry County residents use Metra daily to travel to Chicago – 1.59 percent of the county’s population. With about $10.945 million in RTA sales-tax revenues coming from McHenry County in 2012 for Metra, residents are paying $2,230 in subsidies per Metra passenger. This number only includes the operating expenses for Metra. It does not include the estimated $21 million per year required for capital investments for new transit. Pace budget and cost recovery ratios are exceedingly grim. As Illinois loses more businesses and jobs because of high taxes, an unfriendly business climate, and $100 billion pension deficit, revenue receipts to the state will decrease. Revenue opportunities from the

state and matching funds from federal grants for the RTA also will diminish. New funding opportunities from the federal government also have been found to be temporary or intermittent. I see an urgent need to focus and push the RTA to establish increasingly progressive recovery ratios for Metra, CTA and Pace that will gradually place the agencies on a path to greater sustainability. McHenry County needs to explore innovative ways to enhance transportation in McHenry County via free-market opportunities and strategies in an effort to expand private business and create jobs in the county. The board also needs to scrutinize the status quo, knowing that 308,000-plus residents rely on board members to question political policy and practices, minimize tax increases and eliminate waste.

Adults who love football and kids who suffer as a result WASHINGTON – While we’re still in the season, let’s give thanks to Mike DeWine, a former U.S. senator who has made good in his second life as the attorney general of Ohio. Unlike most law enforcement officials, DeWine didn’t rest on his laurels after the conviction in March of two high school football players from Steubenville, Trent Mays and Ma’lik Richmond, for raping an unconscious 16-year-old girl at a party. He embarked on a second phase, empaneling a grand jury to look into the conduct of the not-soinnocent bystanders and adults who didn’t do anything about it, even as nude photos of the victim spread on the Internet. DeWine asked, “How do you hold kids accountable if you don’t hold the adults accountable?” DeWine’s grand jury returned the last of its indictments Nov. 25. Among those charged with protecting athletes over cooperating with the police are the school’s director of technology, a volunteer coach who allowed the underage drinking, and the school superintendent, Michael McVey, who was charged with obstructing justice and tampering with evidence. Only the power of high school athletics can explain why, despite

what looked like incriminating evidence, head coach Reno Saccoccia was spared. At the players’ trial, an email from Mays was read in which he recounted the coach’s response. “I got Reno. He took care of it; even if they did take it to court.” In another, he said the coach treated the whole thing like a joke. After Mays’ conviction, Saccoccia’s contract for administrative services was renewed. In explaining why the investigation would probably end without the indictments of all those who behaved horribly, DeWine explained the need for probable cause. “It is simply not sufficient that a person’s behavior was reprehensible, disgusting, mean-spirited or just plain stupid,” he said. The Steubenville teenagers didn’t even feel the need to keep their reprehensible acts secret. Rather, they recorded them. No one helped the stricken girl. The party-goers cheered on the players, helped carry her like a rag doll in and out of a car by her ankles and wrists, took pictures and later bragged on social media about urinating on the victim. The case is reminiscent of what happened at Penn State University, where the forces of football and

VIEWS Margaret Carlson the fiction of sex not really being a crime combined to shield coach Jerry Sandusky. Those in charge ignored the assaults on children going on under their noses. Punishment finally came, but not until after the lives of many more boys were ruined. Yet there’s a paradox at the core of our cult of football. On the one hand, the players are coddled and adulated to the point where their violent sexual behavior is covered up by adults. On the other, these same players are put at risk of their very lives, limbs and brains by these very same adults. The most gung-ho coach no longer can ignore evidence incriminating them in putting their charges at grave risk. Football is a documented danger to the kids who play it, and helmets don’t help. In early November, a high school player in Arizona died from a traumatic brain injury suffered during a playoff game. In October, a 15-year-old in Virginia died during practice after suffering


a concussion in a game. Hurt players continue playing so they can go on to college ball, like the running back at New Jersey’s Marist High School who suffered a concussion, returned to playing, lost consciousness again and intends to go back as soon as his blood clot stabilizes. The danger doesn’t stop with kids. Former NFL quarterback Brett Favre disclosed that he had suffered multiple concussions and that he couldn’t remember whether his daughter played soccer (she did) or what team he was playing for. In August, the National Football League settled for a reported $765 million a lawsuit by more than 4,500 ailing former players who charged the league with concealing the dangers of concussions and rushing injured players back onto the field while profiting from the bone-jarring hits that make for spectacular highlight reels. At least those who play professional ball are well-compensated adults who can assess the risks. It’s worse for school kids whose parents don’t know how coaches are treating their charges. One of the more heartbreaking injuries happened to 22-year-old fullback Derek Sheely, whose parents dropped him off at Frost-

burg State University in Maryland one week, found him in a coma the next, and dead shortly after that. During a practice in which players were told to run full force into others who weren’t allowed to defend themselves, Sheely said he didn’t feel right. His coach, according to the lawsuit, screamed at him to stop his moaning and get back out there. Sheely collapsed and never regained consciousness. His parents didn’t know what had happened until a teammate wrote to tell them. When they contacted NCAA President Mark Emmert, he responded that risk can’t be removed from contact sports and directed them to safety information on the NCAA’s website. Adults are failing the young in two ways: By exposing them to grievous harm for entertainment and profit, and for the moral injury that played out in Steubenville. Thank goodness Republican DeWine lost his Senate seat in 2006 for being insufficiently conservative and supporting gun control.

HARVARD HOME DAMAGED IN FIRE HARVARD – The siding on a farm house in Harvard caught fire Friday evening as the home’s inhabitants were trying to burn out a front flower bed. The Harvard Fire Department responded to the call for a fire at the residence, 4608 Alden Road, at about 6:33 p.m. Officials estimated the blaze caused $10,000 to $15,000 in damage, Battalion Chief Bryan Pierce said. “The front of the house sustained pretty good damage,” he said. The older couple living in the residence has been displaced for the time being, Pierce said. Fire and rescue departments from Woodstock, Hebron, Walworth, Wis., and Marengo assisted Harvard with the fire.

County officials warn of scams Sheriff’s office holds seminar to help residents protect themselves By JIM DALLKE JOHNSBURG – Crystal Lake accountant Ken Martin has seen his fair share of clients fall victim to scams and identify theft, but nothing compared to his McHenry client who lost more than $130,000 to a scam artist in Costa Rica.

The elderly McHenry resident was promised millions, and all he had to do was send money orders of $2,000 to collect his winnings. For three months the man sent money order after money order until he completely cleaned out his IRA. His family pleaded for him to stop. He would slam the door when police would

come to his home. Eventually, he went completely broke. “He wouldn’t even talk to his family members because he believed that he had finally hit it big,” Martin said. Whether it’s over the phone, through the mail or sent to an email inbox, scams present a serious threat – particularly to

senior citizens – and the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office presented a seminar to residents Friday about how to protect themselves from identify theft and other scams. The holidays are a particularly dangerous time of the year for scams as identity

Ads could lower dog park fees Will be first park in McHenry to have advertising By EMILY K. COLEMAN

News to your phone Text NWHMCHENRY to 74574 to sign up for McHENRY news text alerts from the Northwest Herald. Message and data rates apply. McHENRY – Advertising will be allowed in McBark Dog Park, the first McHenry park to have it, the McHenry City Council decided Monday. Revenue generated from allowing the 2-foot by 4-foot color banners could translate to lower user fees in the

future, Deputy City Administrator Bill Hobson said. “I think it’s a great idea, especially if it will allow us to lower the fees,” said Alderwoman Geri Condon, adding that she has heard a lot of complaints about costs. The annual membership fees – which cost $75 for residents and $125 for

nonresidents, plus $10 per additional animal – have been criticized for running significantly higher than the fees set by other area park districts, municipalities and counties that operate dog parks. The rates were designed to cover the cost of maintaining the park, Hobson said. It would take about 200 residents to cover the approximately $15,000 a year the city estimates it will cost to maintain the park, according to Parks and Recreation Committee meeting minutes. So far, 86 users have reg-

istered 107 dogs, according to city documents. The cost estimate includes mowing, providing bags for dog waste, conducting daily maintenance such as trash pickup, and routine maintenance such as trimming trees, removing brush and maintaining the wood chip and limestone paths. But some of that cost could now be covered by the newly approved advertising, which will cost $500 for a business located in the city limits and $750 for a nonresident business. The businesses would have to be pet related.

Huntley girl battles rare liver cancer By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO HUNTLEY – Lauren Felde didn’t know what to think earlier this fall when she could feel a lump near the stomach of her 3-yearold daughter, Payton. Payton had been complaining that her stomach hurt. Lauren and her husband, Ryan, ultimately checked their daughter into the hospital.

On Oct. 25, Payton was diagnosed with hepatoblastoma, a rare liver cancer that can affect children up to 5 years old. Doctors informed the Huntley family that Payton had a massive tumor on her liver and smaller tumors on her lungs, Lauren Felde said. “I never in a million years would think that would be the diagnosis,” Lauren Felde said. “At the

very beginning, it was not very hopeful. They told us it was a 50-50 chance. But she has been phenomenal.” Facing an uncertain recovery, the Felde family has started a “Pennies 4 Payton” fundraiser on to help cover Payton’s medical expenses. The family so far has raised $32,860, with a goal of reaching $50,000.

Route 31 bike path upkeep to be shared Local entities to split maintenance costs By JOSEPH BUSTOS As part of the Route 31 and Algonquin Western Bypass improvements, Illinois and McHenry County contributed toward the cost of a bike path. However, local taxing bodies will be responsible for the future maintenance of the roughly two-mile path, part of which has been built. McHenry County, Lake in the Hills, Algonquin, Cary and the McHenry County Conservation District will split the costs of future maintenance of the bike path, under the terms of a proposed agreement. Cary and the conservation district have approved the agreement. The McHenry County Board is scheduled to

thieves prey on older residents who are in the spirit of giving, according to McHenry County Undersheriff Andrew Zinke. “If somebody’s calling you over the phone, and you don’t know them from Adam, and they want you to send them money, don’t do it,” Zinke told the group of more than two dozen residents Friday in the senior services room at the McHenry Township Building. Some of the more common scams happening in McHenry County currently involve calls from people claiming to be from the IRS who demand that you owe money, Zinke said. A recent case involved a Crystal Lake man who was told he had warrants for tax violations. He sent $12,000 before he realized it was a scam. The IRS recommends that if you get a call from someone claiming to be with the IRS, hang up and


Fox River Grove increases its levy By JOSEPH BUSTOS FOX RIVER GROVE – The Village Board on Thursday passed its annual property tax levy. Village officials approved levying for $876,757, an increase over last year’s levy of $835,566. The village opted to levy the maximum allowed, which meant asking for the

1.7 percent rate of inflation and by taxing any new construction that took place during the year. Under the tax cap law, non-home rule municipalities are limited to increase their levies by either 5 percent or the rate of inflation under the consumer price index, whichever is less. The key reason why the village opted to increase its

levy by the maximum amount allowed is it has increasing obligations to the state-mandated police pension, said Village Administrator Karl Warwick. “It’s a mandate we have to fund into future years,” Warwick said. Warwick estimated the owner of a $200,000 house will have to pay $8.30 more a year in property taxes to the vil-

lage. Final property tax rates for next year won’t be set until property values are finalized in the spring. Trustees Tom Anderson and Andrew Migdal voted against the levy increase. Last year, Fox River Grove opted not to increase levy by the rate of inflation and had a slight increase to capture any new property growth.

Payton has undergone two surgeries already • CANCER Continued from page B1 The public also is welcome to attend a benefit at 3 p.m. Saturday at John Barleycorn, 1100 American Lane, Schaumburg. Tickets for adults are $30 and include an afternoon of entertainment, raffles and a

silent auction. Since the diagnosis, Payton has already undergone two surgeries and two rounds of chemotherapy. By the sixth round of chemotherapy, doctors hope the cancer will be removed from Payton’s lungs, Lauren Felde said. Doctors would then attempt to operate on the liver,

followed by additional chemotherapy. A possibility exists the cancer could return during the next five years after it is removed, Lauren Felde said. The diagnosis has forced Lauren Felde to take time off from her job as a life skills teacher at Huntley High School. Ryan Felde, who owns Fel-

de Chiropractic in Palatine, also has had to take time away from his job, while the family juggles caring for Payton and raising their 21-month-old son, Jordan. Any support, Lauren Felde said, is appreciated. “Life doesn’t stop when this happens, which is hard,” she said.

“I can’t tell you how many people do this. Either they believe the messages they are receiving or they just want to believe so bad and they are going to do this. You need to really think about this stuff.” Andrew Zinke McHenry County undersheriff call the main number at 800829-1040. An IRS worker can assist you to determine whether you owe any taxes. Zinke also said it’s important to be on the lookout for lottery winnings that appear too good to be true. In August, a Crystal Lake man received a phone call that told him he had won $1 million, and all he had to do was go to Western Union and send a money order of $800. Another case involved a

man who received a letter in the mail from a “Financial Services” company informing him that he won $50,000. To collect, the man needed to first pay $2,550 for the taxes on the winnings. “I can’t tell you how many people do this,” Zinke said. “Either they believe the messages they are receiving or they just want to believe so bad and they are going to do this. You need to really think about this stuff.” The Better Business Bureau of Chicago also cautioned against holiday scams. The BBB urged people to be on the lookout for bogus charities, fake gift cards from online third parties and Dear Santa websites that lure children into too much personal information. “Vigilance is the word,” BBB CEO Steve Bernas said in a press release. “Whether you’re making a donation, shopping online or in stores, scammers are on the lookout for you and you should do the same for them. Keep your eyes and ears open.”

Agreement estimates $120,000 for bike path reconstruction costs • BIKE PATH Continued from page B1 consider the agreement on Dec. 17. Algonquin and Lake in the Hills will consider the agreement next week. According to the agreement, it is estimated to cost $120,000 – in 2013 dollars – to reconstruct the bike path. Reconstruction is expected to be needed in 15 to 20 years. The five taxing bodies each will be responsible for 20 percent of the cost, or about $24,000 each. The path will run from 1,250 feet south of Rakow Road to Main Street in Algonquin. “This corridor was viewed as a strategic connection point for a regional bike path,” Cary Village Administrator Chris Clark said this week. The entities had been in discussions for the agreement for 16 months. Clark said the agreement was done in the “spirit of intergovernmental cooperation.”

According to a memo written by Clark, outside grant funding for the future project might become available because of the importance of the path and the nature of the intergovernmental agreement. That would help reduce the local costs for the project, Clark said. “It’s also possible that the village may be able to negotiate with a future developer to assume the cost for future bike path replacement,” Clark wrote. The state began building the bike path as part of the Route 31 improvements. According to county documents, the bike path is a regional path with connections to the existing bike path in front of the Walmart in Crystal Lake, the Virginia Road park-and-ride lot and Main Street in Algonquin. County documents also say regional connections are planned to be made to Hoffman Park in Cary and the conservation district’s trail access near Algonquin Road.

My Favorite Things: The Holiday Edition ■ AUTUMN SIEGMEIER, PLANITNORTHWEST.COM



Autumn and bring you the most complete listing of events for you and your family each week! Please email Autumn at asiegmeier@shawmedia for the Planit calendar or questions.

Events will include ice sculpting demonstration, holiday vendors, iceless skating rink, entertainment, storytelling, tree lighting and much more. All events are free. From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Thursday nights at the house are usually my one night for control of the television. At least until “Project Runway” is over. By then, the basketball fans have circled the couch and I know that the West Coast game is in my near future. On Thursday, I tuned into “The Sound of Music” with Carrie Underwood. It is not in my list of top five musicals but those songs are catchy. I started humming “My Favorite Things,” changing out the lyrics to my own faves. With that inspiration, here are some of my sentimental picks for the holidays season. The Golfer in My Life would probably add that we are all lucky this is a column and not a podcast; no one needs to hear me sing.

Everyone seems to have their “must see” movies for this time of year. The Golfer loves “It’s A Wonderful Life” and cannot believe I’ve DECEMBER 7 & 8 never seen it. After all these years, he has yet CHRISTMAS OF YESTERYEAR to convince me to watch it. “Elf” starring Will DOWNTOWN RICHMOND Ferrell is my holiday classic. With lines like “We elves try to stick to the four main food Enjoy an old-fashioned holiday weekend with pho- groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and tos with Santa, cookie walk, hayride and historic syrup,” the humor and good nature of the film house talk, craft fair, dance performance, pancake are just as funny the twentieth viewing as the first. Another classic that might be more breakfast and more. specific to my age group is “Emmet Otter’s Jug Band Christmas,” a Jim Henson flick from 1977. If you find it in a bin of DVDs for $5 or $10 , grab it. A sweet all-Muppet twist on the gift of the Magi story.


Please note; we try to be as accurate as possible with our events but things are subject to change without notice. Check the listing and confirm before heading to an event.

Christmas music is a love or loathe proposition. I enjoy it, even after years of working

retail, listening to carols for twelve hours a day, seven days a week, for a month straight. “O, Christmas Tree” is not usually a top choice but I love the version played in the opening of “Charlie Brown Christmas.” The lyrics of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” kind of make me want to hold hands with the Golfer and walk through a snowy wonderland. I guess I’m just not an Alvin and the Chipmunks or “Duck the Halls” kind of gal. As a kid, I remember a few Christmas books we would read every year. To this day, my mom still pulls out our original version of “Mr. Willowby’s Christmas Tree.” This charming tale is about a too-tall Christmas tree whose top is continually chopped off and passed on to a variety of characters, from the maid to the mouse. We also read “Father Christmas,” a less popular book by the same author of “The Snowman.” This British version of St. Nick is not really jolly but more curmudgeonly; my kind of Santa. Quick armchair review: We saw “Catching Fire” on Tuesday night, even though the Golfer hadn’t seen “The Hunger Games.” I enjoyed it for the continued story and he thinks Jennifer Lawrence is really cute. We both needed action and special effects to break up our run of rather serious films. I would say a solid enjoyable B. Enjoy the weekend and please let me know any suggestions for holiday favorites to add in this year. Autumn

DeKalb women remember life after Pearl Harbor ‘Day that will live in infamy’ changed their lives By DEBBIE BEHRENDS On the anniversary of the “day that will live in infamy,” three DeKalb residents remember how they spent the months after Dec. 7, 1941, the day that catapulted the United States into World War II. Patricia Woods was a sophomore at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana and struggling with chemistry. Fay Stone was a teen whose family had moved from Wisconsin to Tacomah, Wash., for her father to take a job there. Mil Misic was a young teen in Minnesota who watched three brothers go to war. All three women’s lives were changed because of that day. “I lived with my grandmother in Urbana,” Woods said. “I called my father, who was in the Army, and he said, ‘Honey, why don’t you join the Navy?’ ” She and a friend visited a recruiter and joined the WAVES – short for Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service. The WAVES, created in August 1942 to provide additional military personnel, were an official part of the Navy, and its members held the same rank and ratings as male personnel. Woods said she remembered the first meal she had at boot camp at Hunter College in New York. “They had these heavy trays with dividers, but they didn’t bother to use the dividers,” Woods said. “They just

poured everything on your tray.” Later that night, she was allowed to make one phone call. She placed it to her father and told him, “I want out of this place,” she said. “I don’t like the food here.” Along with her duties in the hospital corps, which she said were similar to a certified nurse’s aid, Woods was able to travel, escorting troops to various bases. She also had an opportunity to sell war bonds on the Good Ship Hope when it docked at Navy Pier in Chicago. “I met a lot of nice people,” Woods said. “Money was tight, but people were enthusiastic and quite generous.” Even through all the good experiences, Woods said oc-

casionally she and her fellow WAVES talked about the men they replaced, often sending them to the front lines. “We felt sadness, guilt maybe, taking their places so they could go to war,” Woods said. As a teenager, Stone was too young to enlist, but felt like she was dropped into the middle of the war. “We arrived in Tacomah just after Pearl Harbor was bombed and housing was almost nonexistent,” Stone said. She and her parents and older brother lived in a oneroom apartment for months. “I could have gone to the moon and been less traumatized,” Stone said. With shipyards and a naval base on the Washington coast, Stone said the population in general was scared. “We felt like sitting ducks,” Stone said. “The only thing between us was distance and open water. We felt very involved in the war, very quickly.” Rationing, blackouts and scrap metal drives were part of daily life. Stone said her father was an air raid warden, her mother went to work at Fort Lewis, and she and her brother joined the Civil Air Patrol to watch for threats to the local airports. “We were doing the job that older men would have done,” she said. Her volunteer efforts weren’t all about work, however. Stone said she had plenty of chances to fly in small planes and learned to love flying.

Debbie Behrends –

Fay Stone of DeKalb reminisces Monday about life on the West Coast and feeling like being in the middle of war in the months after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Stone remembered asking about the people who ran the small Japanese grocery store in her neighborhood. “One day the store was boarded up and they were just gone,” Stone said. “It sounds terrible now, but we didn’t know them either individually or as a people, and we were relieved.” As a result of the mass internment of Japanese-Americans, Stone said she spent a lot of summer days harvesting fruits and vegetables. “Farmers would just come into town and say they were picking peas that day,” Stone said. “Kids would pile into the back of his truck and spend the day harvesting his crops. “That killed my summer vacations,” she said with a laugh.

Although she was only 13 when Pearl Harbor was bombed, Mil Misic remembers it vividly. After enjoying Sunday dinner, her mother was listening to a religious service on the radio while her father dozed in his favorite chair. She played jacks, and her three older brothers were doing whatever they did on winter Sunday afternoons. “Around 2 p.m., hurried footsteps were heard on the front porch. My three brothers came bounding into the house,” Misic wrote in an email. “ ‘Mom, Dad, change the radio station. The [Japanese] bombed Pearl Harbor.’ ” She said they all huddled around the radio, listening intently while she returned to her jacks. By April 1942, her oldest

brother, who had just turned 21, was drafted into the Army. The second brother received an invitation from Uncle Sam in August. That November, her third brother turned 17 and enlisted in the Naval Reserve. He soon joined the regular Navy with his parents’ consent. “We were fortunate, because all three came back alive,” she wrote. All three brothers were plucked from their young, innocent daily lives in Minnesota and taught to shoot and kill, Misic said in a phone interview. “I’ve often thought about the millions of young men that happened to,” she said. “I was young when Pearl Harbor was bombed, but it’s still such a vivid memory.”

“Inside Llewyn Davis” STARRING: Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan and Justin Timberlake.

PLOT: The Coen brothers’ latest dark comedy follows a week in the life of a young singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. RATED: R for language including some sexual references. TIME: 1 hour, 45 minutes VERDICT: The Coen brothers pluck at the beatnik scene of the late 1950s and early 1960s. Helmed by long-time

Coen collaborator T Bone Burnett, the tunes in this film – which are performed live – bare morbid undertones that correspond with the foremost concepts of the story: poverty, abortion, disappointment and death. It seems we’ll have no problem feeling sorry for Llewyn. He is struggling to make it as a solo artist after his bandmate committed suicide, and his dismal hymns fail to propel him out of dire straits. Unable to afford his own place, he crashes on the couches of friends around town. Yet he’s determined to keep his guitar close by and

not sell out. Only the fact that he’s an egotistical jackass makes it impossible to feel solidly empathetic toward him. Indeed, the film is a heavy downer, and its consistent gray-hue enhances the bleakness. But the Coen brothers never fail to weave in bits of saucy irony, giving way for essential comical moments that bring everything full-circle. – The Associated Press

“Out of the Furnace” STARRING: Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Zoe Saldana, Woody Harrelson

PLOT: When Rodney Baze

of revenge and thwarted dreams in post-industrial America. Scott Cooper, who directed “Crazy Heart” a few years ago, once again evinces a gift for conveying atmosphere, carefully framing and composing his shots to lend “Out of the Furnace” a reserved, even stately, air of dignity. And he knows how to get the best from his actors: Affleck delivers a searing portrayal of a young man who pushes himself to the punishing physical limit in search of both money and catharsis. Bale’s part may not be as showy, but at least one

mysteriously disappears and law enforcement fails to follow through, his older brother, Russell, takes matters into his own hands to find justice. RATED: R for strong violence, profanity and drug content TIME: 1 hour, 56 minutes VERDICT: The unforgiving back roads and rusted-out mill towns of Appalachia provide the bleak backdrop and emotional landscape of “Out of the Furnace,” a well-acted, beautifully filmed, utterly depressing chronicle

moment – when Russell hears a pivotal piece of news – could stand the test of time as a mini-master class in the art of screen acting. There are good men in “Out of the Furnace,” as well as bad men, and sad men and stupid men – but even the best of them have blood on their hands, usually their own. Even when it descends into self-consciousness in a lurid final act, “Out of the Furnace” effectively brings viewers into a space where whatever people had to lose was either squandered or stolen from them. – The Washington Post

Adults need to help with 12-year-old’s weight issues Dear Abby: I’m 12 and weigh 204 pounds. I feel really fat and I want to go on a diet, but my mom won’t let me. I’m getting bad grades in gym class and need your help. – Sad Girl In New Hampshire Dear Sad Girl: By recognizing that you have a problem that you can’t deal with on your own, you have already taken an important first step in resolving it. The next is to talk to your gym teacher about this and enlist her aid in convincing your mother to give you the help you need. Childhood obesity is rampant in this country, and all those extra pounds could negatively affect your health – not only now, but in the future. If

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips you have a pediatrician, the doctor may be able to discuss the importance of a healthy diet and exercise program for you with your mom. You will need the help of other adults to make her understand if she can’t see you need help now. Dear Abby: I am 18 and dating someone of a different race. We have been together for more than a year. The problem is my father is very racist. Every time I sneak out to go see my boyfriend, my father wants to know who I am with.

I tell him it’s “my friends,” but he knows I’m lying. I want to tell him who I’m dating, but I know he’s going to be judgmental and rude if I introduce him to my boyfriend. Any advice on what to do? – Nervous In The Northeast Dear Nervous: At 18 you are too old to be sneaking around. Your father knows something is up, and he probably suspects the reason you’re not being truthful or open, so stop lying. If he wants to know why you haven’t brought the young man around, tell him it’s because you know how he would react. And IF you decide to make introductions, be sure your boyfriend knows

in advance what the reaction will probably be – if he agrees to meet your dad, that is. But I wouldn’t blame him if he didn’t. Dear Abby: I ran into an old high school friend a while ago. “Jan” and I are both single moms. We want what’s best for our kids. She has no family living here, and she doesn’t have many friends. Jan has low self-esteem, high anxiety and, I believe, she mismanages her finances. Her house is extremely unkempt. She calls me in tears often, asking for advice and help. I have tried to help her, but it is becoming overwhelming. I asked my boss for two days off over the holidays. Jan

called me shortly after and asked me if I can take care of her son on any days I have off over the holidays so he won’t have to go to his day care facility. I feel bad and want to help, but I took the time off to spend much-needed time with my family. I don’t want to have to bring her son to my family festivities. Is this wrong of me? Needless to say, this relationship has added a lot of stress to my life. I tried breaking off the relationship over the summer, and I’m not even sure why it still continues. I feel mean and rude, but I don’t want to be – and can’t be – this girl’s only means of support. – Trapped In Buffalo

Dear Trapped: It is neither mean nor rude to draw the line when someone’s neediness is more than you can cope with. It is OK to say no, and you needn’t feel guilty about it. It is also OK to advise someone that low-cost counseling is available in most communities if the person appears unstable or unable to cope with life. When you do, tell her her needs are more than you are able to handle. If you do, you may not need to end the friendship – she may do it for you, but you’ll be doing her a favor.

• Write Dear Abby at www. or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Weight-loss drugs are not for those mildly overweight Dear Dr. K: Should I take a weight-loss drug to help me lose weight? Dear Reader: If you are only mildly overweight or just want to lose a few pounds to improve your appearance, then weight-loss drugs are not for you. On the other hand, if your health is at risk and you haven’t been able to lose weight through diet and exercise, drug therapy may increase your chance of success. There are a handful of FDA-approved weight-loss drugs on the market today. One is available over-thecounter; the others are pre-

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff scription only. When I was a medical student, virtually none of them were available. The growing epidemic of obesity has led to the development of many drugs that can be helpful. None is a “magic bullet”; none melts the fat off of you while you’re watching TV. These drugs promote weight loss in different ways. A drug called orlistat reduces the amount of fat your body

absorbs from the food you eat. Other drugs suppress your appetite, help you feel full and ramp up your metabolism. The drugs that work this way have long, hard-topronounce medical names: lorcaserin, phentermine, diethylpropion, benzphetamine, phendimetrazine, bupropion, topiramate, zonisamide. Several drugs for Type 2 diabetes also appear to help with weight loss, when combined with lifestyle changes: metformin, pramlintide, exenatide, liraglutide. It’s ironic the names of each of the drugs that can

help with weight loss are themselves quite a mouthful. When deciding whether to recommend weight-loss drugs to my patients, I consider their body mass index (BMI). BMI estimates a healthy weight based on height. (Refer to the BMI chart I’ve put on my website to determine your BMI.) You should consider taking a weight-loss drug only if you: • Have a BMI of 30 or higher, or • Have a BMI of 27 or higher and also have one or more weight-related health problems, such as Type 2 diabetes

or high blood pressure. Before you start a weightloss drug, consider why you overeat. For example, do you overeat because of stress, bad habits or emotional issues? If so, you may benefit less from medication and more from psychotherapy or behavioral therapy. On the other hand, if you overeat because of hunger, then weight-loss drugs are more likely to help. Over the years, several weight-loss drugs have been taken off the market because of safety concerns. It can take time, and lots of people taking a new drug, before any safety issues become apparent. Most

of the drugs now available have not been on the market very long, so talk to your doctor about your individual risks and benefits. Finally, bear in mind you should use weight-loss drugs only in combination with diet and physical activity. To lose weight over the long term, you need to recognize and change the behaviors that led to your weight gain. Otherwise, any weight you lose is likely to return.

• Write to Dr. Komaroff at or Ask Doctor K, 10 Shattuck St., Second Floor, Boston, MA 02115.

Bowling Green ends Huskies’ BCS bowl hopes in romp By STEVE NITZ DETROIT – Northern Illinois’ dream season has ended. The Huskies’ hopes of going to the Fiesta Bowl are gone after a 47-27 loss to Bowling Green in Friday’s Mid-American Conference Championship Game at Ford Field. An NIU defense which had kept improving as the season went on

could not stop the Falcons (10-3) and the Huskies (12-1) couldn’t rally from an 18-point halftime deficit. Jordan Lynch, who looked like he would be in New York for the Heisman Trophy presentation, may now be on the outside looking in when it comes to getting a trip to the Big Apple. Matt Johnson, Bowling Green’s sophomore quarterback, was the star Friday. He finished the game 21 of 27 for 393 yards and five

touchdowns, throwing for nearly 300 yards and four touchdowns in the first half alone. He got the Falcons on the board on Bowling Green’s first drive, with a 28-yard pass to Tyler Beck. NIU would answer when Juwan Brescacin caught a one-handed, 14yard touchdown pass from Jordan Lynch on the Huskies’ first drive. However, the Falcons added three more Johnson touchdown passes and a 26-yard field goal from

Tyler Tate before the teams even went into the locker room at halftime. The only other first-half scoring for the Huskies came with two field goals by Mathew Sims – from 51 and 45 yards out. NIU took the ball to start the second half and drove at will, with the drive ending in a Lynch 8-yard touchdown run.

State repeats won’t be easy for Harvard’s Luis, R-B’s Sutton By ROB SMITH The only thing better in high school wrestling than winning a state championship is winning another one. Richmond-Burton’s Garrett Sutton and Harvard’s Anthony Luis will try and do just that this year, but it won’t be easy. That’s especially true for Luis, who will wrestle in Class 2A this season after winning the title in 1A. Harvard moves from being one of the largest schools in 1A to the smallest in 2A. Luis said, when he heard about the news, he wasn’t too happy but is now looking at it as an opportunity to face even tougher competition that will help prepare him for wrestling Sarah Nader – after high school. “At first, I was a little conRichmond-Burton’s Garrett Sutton (top) is back after winning a state cerned,” Luis said. “I need that individual title last season.

More wrestling Team preview capsules. PAGE C2 in the future. His approach this year will be the same as it always is, prepare and practice as hard has he can. “I don’t really think about what I did last year,” Luis said. Hornets coach Tim Haak said moving to 2A is a little unusual because Harvard’s enrollment has actually gone down the past few years. “Class A just keeps getting smaller and smaller,” Haak said. Haak said the only thing his team can control is its attitude, not who they wrestle. The team’s schedule typically includes 2A and 3A competition, along with the best 1A schools. “It only impacts you in a

negative way if you let it be negative,” Haak said. Sutton is looking not only to repeat his championship but also help his brothers, Grant and Gavin. “My job is not only to get myself another state championship but to help them win their first,” Sutton said. As a top-ranked wrestler last season, Sutton knows what it’s like to have a target on his back. As a state champion, that target is even bigger. “It does add an additional chip on my shoulder,” Sutton said. “It’s the same goal. I know what it takes to achieve it.” Rockets coach Bret Wojcik said Sutton needs to fight being complacent, but he isn’t worried about his senior season. ”He’s so focused. He does everything so well. He’s an in-

telligent young man,” Wojcik said. As for having three Suttons in the room, Wojcik said the were just as good off the mat as on. “They’re just a special breed of kid. They’re so down to earth and coachable,” Wojcik said. “They pick up things from all over the place and bring them back to the room.” Early Success: The season is still young but several area wrestlers are putting their mark on the season already. At the Moore/Prettyman Invitational in Barrington Nov. 30, Crystal Lake South had two individual champions. Nick Gil won at 138-pounds and Brian Pence at 195 to lead a pack of five place winners for the Gators.

Slow start costs Marian By JOE STEVENSON WOODSTOCK – All the excitement Marian Central carried with its three-game winning streak into Friday’s game was wiped out in the first two minutes by IC Catholic. The Knights made their first four field goal attempts; Marian stumbled with three turnovers and two missed shots, all of which propelled IC to a 19-point first-quarter lead. By the time the Hurricanes started hitting shots and held onto the ball, the hole was too large, and IC cruised to a 7459 boys basketball victory in their Suburban Christian Conference Gold Division opener. The Hurricanes agreed that problem was simple to pinpoint, but difficult to understand. “It’s an intensity thing. We came out really sluggish, soft,” Marian forward Quinn Haley said. “We weren’t mentally prepared enough to play a basketball game on our home court. This is something we

Video online Watch highlights of Marian Central’s boys basketball game Friday against IC Catholic at McHenry have to work through and get a feel for how to fix it.” Haley sparked the Hurricanes (3-3 overall, 0-1 SCC Gold) in the second quarter with six of his team-high 10 points. The closest Marian could get the rest of the game was 10 points. “You can’t explain it, for some reason we came out extremely flat,” Hurricanes coach Curtis Price said. “You can’t spot a team 20-1. I didn’t feel the energy before that I felt in previous games, but I thought when the ball went up we’d be able to bounce back. We never really got the emotional charge we needed.” Marian was trying to equal its win total from last season with a victory, but the Knights (4-1, 1-0) never gave the Hurricanes that chance. Rhashaun

Epting, a 6-foot-3 sophomore forward, scored 23 points and grabbed 23 rebounds, while sophomore guard Troy Burrows finished the night with 52 points (28 in the sophomore game and a team-high 24 in the varsity). “Troy had a great two-game night,” IC coach T.J. Tyrrell said. “That was his first sophomore game, he played at Thanksgiving with the varsity and did a nice job with role minutes. That sophomore game really gave him confidence and he started looking for his shot.” Marian cut the lead to 36-24 by halftime, but Epting scored 16 of his total in the second half to help maintain the margin. “The main thing’s intensity, we didn’t come out with it,” Hurricanes guard Wyatt Lindell said. “I’ll take blame for that because I’m supposed to be an intensity guy. I’m positive it’s a one-time thing. We’re not going to let this happen again. I’m not going through the same thing [a 4-24 record] I went through last year.”


Giants can’t match fast pace By KEVIN MEYER HEBRON – The Alden-Hebron boys basketball team knew coming into their first Northeastern Athletic Conference game that they would have to control the pace in order to come out with a win. The game’s pace did not work in their favor, and instead gave the speedy Luther North offense everything it wanted. The Giants (1-4 overall, 0-1 NAC) fell behind by 20 late in the second quarter and never got closer than 15 in their 74-45 loss. “It’s not good to lose by 29 at home,” A-H coach Tom Duffy said. “I thought we had a good week of practice, and to go out and play like that,

that’s what’s most disappointing.” The Giants did not help themselves, committing 22 turnovers. The offense, when dealing with the pressure, had trouble getting good scoring chances throughout most of the game. “We tried to play their pace and not what we wanted or planned to do,” Cody Nelson said. “The plan to slow the ball down and break the press didn’t happen and it really hurt us.” Chris Jenkins of Luther North (3-3, 0-1 NAC) took over the game in the first quarter, outscoring A-H by himself, 15-8. Jenkins finished with 22 points. The Giants played their best in the third quarter,

when they came out and narrowed the Luther North lead to 44-29. It was the only quarter the Giants won, in terms of the scoreboard as well, outscoring the Wildcats 14-13. A-H struggled shooting the ball at times, which stalled any chance at a comeback. Trevor Ball led the Giants with 16 points and eight rebounds. Ball was one of the only consistent parts of A-H’s offense. Avi Mor added 10 points for the Giants, and Nelson scored eight. “We have to give them confidence somehow on offense if we want to get better,” Duffy said. “We are hoping to keep improving and get better soon, we just didn’t improve tonight.”

Woodstock North’s Ahr scores 21 • SKYHAWKS Continued from page C1 “We have a lot of chemistry on the team this year so we’re going to work together really well.” Despite being held without a field goal in the second quarter, Johnsburg made 8 of 14 free throws to trail the Thunder 22-21 at halftime. Tied at 30 through three quarters, Johnsburg took a four-point lead early in the fourth while shutting out Woodstock North (2-6, 0-2) through the first three minutes of the quarter. “You survive,” Skyhawks coach Brad Frey said. “We shot better free throws in the second quarter. We were terrible in the first quarter with free throws, but we came back. I was so proud of Maddie Himpelmann.” The Thunder pulled within 34-33 of the Skyhawks with 3:57 left in the game after a layup and free throw by Woodstock North sophomore center Haley Ahr. The Skyhawks’ zone defense struggled to stop Ahr, who scored a game-high 21 points. But Johnsburg neutralized the Thunder’s open looks on the perimeter, and the Skyhawks’ full-court press

Johnsburg won, 43-38. helped create turnovers leading to easy points. Three Skyhawks finished in double figures with junior forward Trace Chase and senior guard Katie Poczkalski each scoring 10 points. Both teams were sloppy in the first quarter, combining for 21 turnovers. They settled down, however, and the Thunder were able to turn a 13-10 Johnsburg lead in the first quarter into a 28-23

Woodstock North advantage midway through the third quarter. The Thunder had too many stretches during the second half in which they couldn’t score, and Johnsburg was able to take advantage. “We struggled scoring, but we were right around our average,” Thunder coach Mike Lewis said. “We’ll be around 40, 45 (points), but we need to hold them under 40 and we got closer.”

CLC coach likes what he sees early • WRESTLING Continued from page C1 Also at Barrington, CaryGrove’s Michael Cullen (113), Johnsburg’s Branden Peshek (132) and Prairie Ridge’s Charley Popp (160) all placed second. Kyle Fugiel (152), Michael Zelasco (182) and Andrew Marsden all won titles at Conant. Tigers coach Justen Lehr said he was pleasantly surprised at how well his team was prepared at their first tournament. Marsden, ranked No. 2 in Class 2A by illinoismatmen.

com, nearly technical falled the No. 3-ranked wrestler from Bloomington, 15-1, in the finals. Lehr said Fugiel is motivated this year to get a place on the place winners stage. “Kyle’s on a mission,” Lehr said. “He’s tired of dressing up for the big dance and not having a date.” At the Carmel dual tournament, R-B had wins against St. Patrick, Carmel, Waukegan and West Chicago. After a depleted lineup last season, Wojcik said having a larger team that is more competitive is good motivation for everyone.

“Anytime you have more kids in the room there’s more options. You can just do a lot more,” Wojcik said. “Building in some team success helps with that too.” State title hopefuls: In addition to the two state champions, the area returns seven other place winners looking to improve and possibly win a title. Prairie Ridge’s Travis Piotrowski in 3A and Marsden in 2A both placed third and Gil was fourth in 3A. Marian Central’s Nick Remke, Zelasco and Grant Sutton all finished fifth in 2A and Cullen was sixth in 3A.

Marian grad Gilleland earns top MAC honor Sophomore setter Abby Gilleland is the catalyst for an Ohio University volleyball offense that ranks first in the Mid-American Conference with a .264 hitting percentage. Her 10.69 assists a set rank fourth in the conference and helped the Bobcats win the MAC’s regular-season and tournament championships. Her career-best 61 assists helped Ohio (27-5) clinch the league’s East Division title last month. But all of the numbers she has piled up this season Abby have little meaning Gilleland to Gilleland, a Marian Central graduate from Bull Valley. “They really don’t,” Gilleland said. “I get assists because my hitters put the ball away. It’s a big circle.” Her 1,272 successful sets this season had plenty to do with Ohio earning a spot in the NCAA tournament this weekend at a regional in Lexington, Ky. Gilleland’s play also gained notice from league coaches, who chose her as the MAC’s Player of the Year and a first-team all-conference selection. “Our team is so balanced,” Gilleland said. “We have so many threats from so many different parts of the court. I wasn’t sure any of us would win (Player of the Year) because of our balance. So, that was a surprise.” Gilleland also was named the league’s Setter of the Year, a first for an Ohio program that has appeared in the NCAAs nine times in the past 13 seasons. “I love to represent Ohio volleyball,” Gilleland said. “I’m so happy to be here. It’s nice to get an award and represent our program well.” One of the main beneficiaries of Gilleland’s sets is junior outside hitter Kelly Lamberti, a Cary-Grove grad who ranked eighth in the conference with a team-best 3.13 kills

ON CAMPUS Barry Bottino a set. Lamberti, last season’s MAC Player of the Year, joined Gilleland on the first team this year. Lamberti was one of four Ohio players named to the All-MAC first team and is a big source of pride for Gilleland. “One thing that really makes me proud is when our sets and kills that are part of the game plan work,” Gilleland said. “One of our hitters (junior Liis Kullerkann) had a great game in the MAC final. To see someone go off like that and get a career high is great. That’s fun for me.” Kullerkann’s 15 kills in a 3-0 win against Eastern Michigan guided Ohio back to the NCAAs after missing out the past two seasons. “We’re a young team, so to get this experience now is really going to pay off in the long run,” Gilleland said. Synon shines: Zach Synon, a redshirt freshman wrestler at Missouri, won his first open tournament championship last month by claiming the 125-pound title at the University of Central Missouri Open. Synon, a Prairie Ridge grad, allowed only three points in five tournament victories, including a 5-0 triumph against Oklahoma State’s Connor Cline in the final. For the season, Synon has a 15-4 record. Crystal Lake Central grad Trevor Jauch is 7-3 at 141 pounds for Mizzou. Redbird recognition: Cary-Grove grad Ashley Rosch, a sophomore outside hitter at Illinois State, was named to the All-Missouri Valley Conference first team in women’s volleyball. Rosch led the Redbirds (19-13) with 389 kills and had 298 digs. Rosch, who also was named to the MVC’s All-Tournament team, ranked sixth in the conference in kills a set (3.21) and 20th in digs a set


Leading linebackers: Winona State’s Collin Corcoran and Southwest Minnesota State’s J.J. Bobrowicz were both selected to the All-Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference teams as linebackers last month. Corcoran, a sophomore at D-II Winona (Minn.) State, led the Warriors (6-5) with nine sacks this season and ranked third on the team with 67 tackles. The Prairie Ridge grad also led Winona with 12.5 tackles for loss while earning second-team honors in the NSIC South Division. Bobrowicz, a senior from Crystal Lake Central, collected 68 tackles, including seven tackles for loss and three sacks for the Mustangs (7-4). He was selected to the South Division team as an honorable mention choice. NACC football honors: Crystal Lake South grad Tyler Simmons, a senior defensive end at D-III Aurora University, was named first-team All-Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference in football. Simmons led the Spartans (3-7) with 16.5 tackles for loss and 5.5 sacks while collecting 48 tackles. He also forced two fumbles and had two fumble recoveries. The All-NACC second team included Concordia Chicago senior offensive tackle Scott Ilich. The Crystal Lake Central grad was part of an offense for the Cougars (2-8) that scored 29.7 points and averaged more than 400 yards in conference games. Aurora’s defensive stat leaders also included senior linebacker Christian Rago (Woodstock), who ranked second on the team with 56 tackles. • Barry Bottino writes a weekly column and a blog about local college athletes for the Northwest Herald.

Imperfect Buckeyes try to stay unbeaten By MICHAEL MAROT The Associated Press INDIANAPOLIS – Urban Meyer has No. 2 Ohio State in a seemingly perfect spot. The Buckeyes are 12-0, have won 24 straight and are likely one win away from making their fourth appearance in the BCS title game. They have a potential Heisman Trophy finalist in Braxton Miller, the first 1,000-yard runner of Meyer’s coaching career in Carlos Hyde, an offensive line that fits with the Ohio State tradition and AP file photo an underrated defense that makes Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is a likely all the big plays. This is a team that heads into Heisman Trophy finalist.

the Big Ten title game with flaws and questions and down a starting right guard after Meyer benched Marcus Hall on Friday with a Saturday night showdown against No. 10 Michigan State looming. “He won’t start the game,” Meyer said. “Other than that, we’ll see what happens. But that’s where it’s at.” It’s the latest twist for a team that has been anything but perfect this season. Last week, Hall and kick returner Dontre Wilson were ejected after getting involved in a fight with archrival Michigan. Hall responded by throwing his helmet to the ground on the sideline and making

an obscene gesture at the Wolverines fans as he walked through the tunnel. On Friday, Meyer said he benched the lineman and will start freshman Pat Elflein. The doubters contend Ohio State’s imperfect resume is filled with victories over mostly bad teams and won a conference in which Top 25 matchups have been rare. This year, the Buckeyes faced only two ranked teams – beating usually strong Wisconsin by a TD at home and a Northwestern squad by 10 on the road, a team that never lived up to the ranking. Some say Saturday night’s game will be the biggest challenge of Meyer’s twoyear tenure in Columbus.

Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio doesn’t see things quite the same way. A year ago, the Spartans (11-1) lost, 17-16, to Ohio State in East Lansing, Mich., and this year, Dantonio insists the Buckeyes are improved. “What you see is an extremely productive offensive football team that is capable of a big play at any point in time, at any given moment, from anywhere on the field,” he said. “We’ve got to be able to control that, work through that. ... They’re a very well-coached football team with tremendous players with an X-factor, the X-factor being Braxton Miller, quarterback. That’s what makes it so difficult.”


With Winston cleared, FSU eyes ACC title By STEVE REED The Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Duke cornerback Ross Cockrell is not offended the Blue Devils are a 29-point underdog to Jameis Winston and top-ranked Florida State for Saturday night’s ACC championship game. “Florida State has been blowing everybody out,” he said. The Seminoles (12-0 overall, 8-0 ACC) have beaten opponents on average 54-11 this season behind Winston, who set ACC freshman records by throwing for 3,490 yards and 35 touchdowns. They have de-

feated all but one of their opponents by at least 27 points. Now all that stands in the way of the Seminoles reaching the BCS national championship game is an inexperienced Duke (10-2, 6-2) team appearing in its first ACC title game. “I’ve had the good fortune through the years to play some No. 1 teams in this profession, some of them looked like No. 1 teams, some of them didn’t,” Duke coach David Cutcliffe said. “Florida State certainly is.” On Thursday, prosecutors said they would not bring sexual assault charges against Winston, the leading Heisman

Trophy candidate. A woman had alleged Winston had sexually assaulted her at an off-campus apartment last December. He will play Saturday night. Despite the commotion surrounding the team the last several weeks, Seminoles coach Jimbo Fisher said Winston has never wavered on the field. “When it’s time to play football, when it’s time to go to school, he compartmentalizes and handles his responsibilities. ... It’s a true trademark to him because he did not let his individual situation affect his team, and to me that’s what a man does,” Fisher said.

Winston expressed relief in a statement released Thursday: “It’s been difficult to stay silent through this process, but I never lost faith in the truth and in who I am.” Winston was not made available Friday for interviews. The Blue Devils (10-2, 6-2) are in many respects the ultimate underdog. They emerged from the weaker side of the ACC conference. They’re 0-12 all-time facing No. 1-ranked teams and 0-18 against the Seminoles. And they’re facing a Florida State team that annihilated three then-ranked opponents by a combined score of 155-28.

Lynch throws 6th, 7th Auburn, Missouri guard against letdowns interceptions of season SEC FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP: NO. 3 AUBURN VS. NO. 5 MISSOURI, 3 P.M. SATURDAY, CBS

By PAUL NEWBERRY The Associated Press

ATLANTA – Auburn and Missouri are competing for the Southeastern Conference title Saturday, and possibly a chance to play for the national championship. Yet both teams have to guard against a letdown. As ludicrous as that might sound, Auburn and Missouri are coming off emotionally charged victories last week that gave each coach a reason to fret just a bit.

No. 3 Auburn (11-1 overall, 7-1 SEC) used one of the greatest finishing plays in college football history – a 109-yard return of a missed field goal with no time on the clock – to beat two-time defending national champion Alabama in the Iron Bowl for the West Division title. No. 5 Missouri (11-1, 7-1) won the East with a thrilling victory of its own, knocking off Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M, 28-21. “The challenge of any coach, the leadership of the

team, the coaching staff, everybody, is can you stay focused to do what you do day-to-day to play your best?” Missouri coach Gary Pinkel said Friday at the Georgia Dome. “I would like to think we’re doing all the right things. We’ve done it all year long.” Auburn must get past one of the most improbable victories ever, beating its biggest rival in a game that likely eliminated the Crimson Tide from its quest for an unprecedented third straight national title. The winner could get a shot

to play for the SEC’s eighth straight national title. Top-ranked Florida State (12-0) is a huge favorite against Duke in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game, while second-ranked Ohio State (12-0) figures to face a much tougher challenge against Michigan State in the Big Ten title game. If both win, that will likely set the matchup for the BCS championship. If either falters, the Auburn-Missouri winner can expect to land a trip to Pasadena.

• HUSKIES Continued from page C1 The Falcons added a 52yard field goal by Tyler Tate, which tied a MAC Championship record, and the the game was effectively put out of reach on a 6-yard shovel pass from Johnson to running back Travis Greene early in the fourth quarter. A Greene 16-yard score all but ended the game. Lynch would score on a 2-yard run with 14 seconds left.

Greene’s first score came off of a rare turnover by Jordan Lynch. Facing a second-and-13 from NIU’s own 31, he had Tommylee Lewis down the sideline but underthrew him and the pass was picked off by Aaron Foster. Lynch, who had not thrown an interception facing Central Michigan on Oct. 19, had two interceptions Friday, giving him seven on the season. Bowling Green’s win gave the Falcons their first MAC championship since 1992.

Cano would be anchor for Mariners’ lineup SEATTLE – Even as the Seattle Mariners were remaining silent about a potential deal with free agent second baseman Robinson Cano, the New York Yankees were ready to move on. “He was a great Yankee. He was a great player. We wish him the best,” Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner said Friday. The Mariners weren’t saying much of anything Friday, only issuing a statement in response to an ESPN report that Cano and the team had reached agreement on a $240 million, 10-year contract pending a physical. It would be tied for the fourth-richest contract in baseball history. The reported deal would blow away the Yankees’ last offer of $175 million over seven years.

Granderson, Mets agree on $60M, 4-year deal NEW YORK – Curtis Granderson is heading across town, where the New York Mets hope his home run swing won’t suffer at Citi Field. The free-agent outfielder agreed to a $60 million, four-year contract with the Mets, according to a person familiar with the situation. The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity Friday because the deal was pending a physical and no announcement had been made.

Irish to accept invitation to play in Pinstripe Bowl Notre Dame plans to accept a bid to the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press on Friday. The person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal had not become official, said Notre Dame officials have informed bowl organizers that the Fighting Irish will play in the Dec. 28 game in New York against a team from the American Athletic Conference.

U.S. to play Ghana, Portugal, Germany Group assignments

By RONALD BLUM The Associated Press The U.S. drew a daunting task for next year’s World Cup: difficult opponents, tropical venues and a wearying 9,000-mile zigzag journey across Brazil. The Americans wound up with the potentially punishing group they feared and will play Ghana, Portugal and Germany in June as they try to achieve a U.S. first: reaching the knockout phase twice in a row. Although Ghana eliminated the Americans in 2006 and 2010, the Black Stars won’t do it again. The U.S. opens its seventh straight World Cup appearance against Ghana on June 16 at Natal. The U.S. meets Portugal and 2008 FIFA Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo six days later in the Amazon rain forest city Manaus. The Americans have just three off days to recover before closing Group G on June 26 in Recife against three-time champion Germany. “I think we have the quality, if we play our best ball, to get out of the group,” U.S. captain Clint Dempsey said after Friday’s draw set the eight four-nation groups. “You can’t think about, ‘Am I the favorite? Am I the underdog? What’s it going to be like playing in the heat? What’s it going to be like with the travel?’ Those are factors that come into it, but at the end of the day both teams have to deal with it.” After having the shortest group-play travel in South Africa, the U.S. will have the longest in Brazil.

Blackhawks goalie Antti Raanta makes a save during the first period Friday against the Anaheim Ducks at the United Center. The Hawks lost, 3-2, in a shootout.


Hawks drop 3rd straight Next for the Hawks

By MARK LAZERUS CHICAGO – The last time the Blackhawks lost three straight games, they found themselves facing elimination in the second round of the playoffs against the hated Detroit Red Wings last spring, staring into the void of an uncertain offseason of inevitable changes. That one turned out OK in the end. So the Hawks are trying to maintain their perspective after the Anaheim Ducks handed them their third straight loss Friday night, 3-2 in a shootout. “You’re not going to win all 82 games during the season, you know there’s going to be ups and downs,” winger Kris Versteeg said. “This team knows what it takes to

Florida at Hawks, 6 p.m. Sunday, WGN-TV, AM-720 win.” That said, it doesn’t get a whole lot easier from here. Sure, the lowly Florida Panthers are next in town Sunday, but it’s just another game in an exhausting stretch of 19 games in 34 days. And even the Hawks – who have been shrugging off the fatigue angle for weeks now – finally admitted that the schedule is affecting their play. Not that they needed to say as much – the plodding pace and sloppy play of the past three games spoke volumes.

“It’s just something you have to expect, and you know it’s not going to be easy,” Jonathan Toews said. “You’re not going to go out there flying with legs like [as if] you haven’t played a game in a week, obviously. You’ve got to take that into consideration and when you prepare yourself to play. It’s no excuse.” The Hawks at least managed to salvage a point out of this one – something Joel Quenneville had been stressing after allowing third-period winners and coming away with nothing against Dallas and Minnesota. Ben Smith scored 45 seconds after Corey Perry did in the first period, and Versteeg equalized Ryan Getzlaf’s second-period goal, which came with one second left on a power play.

GROUP A Brazil, Croatia, Mexico, Cameroon GROUP B Spain, Netherlands, Chile, Australia GROUP C Colombia, Greece, Ivory Coast, Japan GROUP D Uruguay, Costa Rica, England, Italy GROUP E Switzerland, Ecuador, France, Honduras GROUP F Argentina, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Iran, Nigeria GROUP G Germany, Portugal, Ghana, United States GROUP H Belgium, Algeria, Russia, South Korea icans will be based in Sao Paulo and face trips of 1,436 miles to Natal, 1,832 miles to Manaus and 1,321 miles to Recife. They will play all three games in the tropics, with the second and third matches in the afternoon. “I think guys who have played in MLS are used to taking 3,000-mile trips across the country to play,” midfielder Sacha Kljestan said. The U.S. group has the best average FIFA world ranking. Odds on the Americans winning their first World Cup more than doubled after the draw, from 60-1 to 150-1. “It couldn’t get any more difficult or any bigger,” U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann said at the draw in Costa do Sauipe, Brazil. “It’s a real challenge. And we’ll take it.”

Arizona St. routs DePaul with dominant 2nd half ROSEMONT – Jahii Carson had 23 points, and Jermaine Marshall added 18 as Arizona State (8-2) used a dominant second half to pull away for a 78-56 rout of DePaul (4-4) on Friday night. Billy Garrett led DePaul with 14 points, but the Blue Demons shot a season-low 29.2 percent.

Petersen leaves Boise to coach Washington SEATTLE – Chris Petersen will be Washington’s football coach, making the decision to leave Boise State after eight seasons as the Broncos’ head coach. He’s leaving after an unprecedented run of success at Boise State: five conference titles, 92 victories and two Fiesta Bowl wins.

Texans fire Kubiak after skid reaches 11 HOUSTON – The Houston Texans fired coach Gary Kubiak on Friday, a day after the Texans lost, 27-20, at Jacksonville. Houston (2-11) lost its 11th straight game. The Texans said defensive coordinator Wade Phillips would serve as interim coach for the rest of the season.

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – Tiger Woods had a birdie putt on every hole and made 10 of them Friday to tie his own course record at Sherwood and take a two-shot lead in the World Challenge. Woods had a 10-under-par 62. That gave him a two-shot lead over Zach Johnson.

Vonn finishes 40th in first race since surgery LAKE LOUISE, Alberta – Ten months after major knee surgery and less than three weeks after partially re-tearing a ligament, Lindsey Vonn finished 40th of 60 starters in a World Cup downhill. The American finished in 1:59.22 Friday, more than three seconds behind friend and rival Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany. – Wire reports

NEW YORK – Stocks closed sharply higher after the U.S. government reported a big increase in hiring last month. The Dow Jones industrial average jumped 198 points, or 1.3 percent, to 16,020 Friday. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index rose 20 points, or 1.1 percent, to 1,805. The Nasdaq composite rose 29 points, or 0.7 percent, to 4,062. It was the first increase for the market after five days of losses. The S&P 500 still ended the week with a slight loss, the first after eight weeks of gains. Industrial stocks and others that tend to benefit when the economy is growing posted some of the biggest gains. Intel led the Dow higher.

Key West Tan employee Mara Gasher of Lake Barrington wipes down the spay tan machine while working at the Cary store. Starting Jan. 1, those under 18 will no longer be able to tan in Illinois. The law bans indoor tanning for those younger than age 18.

A spray-tan boom? Area tanning salons adjust ahead of new law By CHELSEA McDOUGALL CRYSTAL LAKE – Area tanning salons are weighing their options, hoping not to get burnt by new legislation that’s cutting into their bottom line. Starting in January, minors under 18 years old will no longer be allowed to tan in indoor tanning salons. Current law allows those aged 14 to 18 to tan with permission from their parents. The law was welcomed by spray tanning salons like Crystal Lakebased Haute Bombshells, a mobile spray tan company. “My business is going to boom,” owner and self-proclaimed “tanologist” Brandy Gisela said, laughing. Haute Bombshells hopes to capitalize on the ban by offering spray tan discounts to teens or those with a student ID. Colleen Whittier owns Key West Tan in Cary. She’s not worried about a potential cut to her bottom line. Only a small portion of her business comes from teens, she said, and that’s mostly around prom and homecoming season, graduations or before vacation. That being said, she disagrees with the law saying “the government has their hands in way too many things.” “Are they going to put a teen tan ban on the pools and the beach? Because that’s where kids are going,” she said. That’s the same sentiment issued by the Washington, D.C.-based Indoor Tanning Association, which said proponents of the law exaggerate statistics.

“It is a fact that ultraviolet light from a sunbed is the same as that from the sun and regular moderate non-burning exposure is essential for good health,” the association said in a statement about limiting tanning exposure for teens But the Academy of Dermatology warns exposure to ultraviolet rays that cause the skin to tan increases the chances of developing skin cancer. Tanning beds increase the risk of melanoma, especially in women aged 45 years or younger, the Academy said. But no matter the risks, there are people who like to look bronzed. Like Whittier, Tammy Neumann of Woodstock’s Tropical TanSpa, said her clientele is made up mostly of

men and women old enough to consent to tan. She fears the ban might bring unintended consequences by pushing teens toward unregulated tanning, like “their aunt’s basement.” “People should be aware that salons have been regulated since the 90s,” Neumann said. “We have been checking ages getting parental consent. … We have been doing it in a responsible way. Why do they chose to take that demographic away from us?” Although Gisela is planning for an increase in business, she’s not interested in making her business by dissing others. “I don’t say ‘this is safer,’ I say ‘this is an alternative,’” Gisela said. “Now this is a legal alternative for the 18 and under.”

Sears to spin off Lands’ End business The ASSOCIATED PRESS


Sarah Nader –

Gasher wipes down a tanning machine at the Cary store.

HOFFMAN ESTATES – Sears Holdings Corp. said Friday that it will spin off its Lands’ End clothing business as a separate company by distributing stock to the retailer’s shareholders. It’s the latest move by the struggling retailer to turn around its results as it faces wider losses and increasingly displeased investors. Sears said in October that it was considering separating the Lands’ End and Sears Auto Center businesses from the rest of the company. It did not mention Sears Auto Center in Friday’s announcement. Belus Capital Advisors analyst Brian Sozzi said the move shows Sears was unable to get a buyer at the right price for Land’s End and may raise questions about how much other wellknown brand names Sears owns, like Craftsman, are worth. “It makes you question the value of what Sears is

sitting on,” he said. “It may have to continue dismembering itself to stay alive today and shrink from inside out. “ Sears has spun off other businesses over the past two years, including its Hometown and Sears Outlet stores and its Orchard Supply Hardware Stores, to raise cash. Sears Chairman and CEO Edward Lampert disclosed recently that his stake in the company has been reduced to less than 50 percent as investors pulled money out of his hedge fund. The news underscores the intense pressure facing the billionaire hedge fund manager, who took over as CEO in February to turn around the business. Sears and the company’s Kmart chain have struggled as rivals have lured away customers over the years. Last year, Sears announced plans to restore profitability by cutting costs, reducing inventory, selling off some assets and

WTO trade deal makes progress in Bali BALI, Indonesia – A possible World Trade Organization deal moved closer to approval Friday after a row over food subsidies was set aside following hours of global negotiations that went late into the night. Trade ministers had come to the four-day WTO meetings on Indonesia’s resort island of Bali with little hope that a slimmed-down agreement would be reached, with India refusing to budge on a provision that could endanger subsidies for grains under a policy to feed its poor. But a draft proposal released late Friday to be decided on by the ministers put the subsidy issue on the backburner, allowing it to be taken up at a later point and opening room for consensus. The proposal also would simplify customs procedures. India Trade Minister Anand Sharma said he endorses the draft proposal. “This is a decision which is historic, and it will resonate in all continents,” he said. The deal could boost global trade by $1 trillion and help revive the WTO’s broader Doha Round of trade negotiations, sometimes known as the development round because of sweeping changes in regulations, taxes and subsidies that would benefit low income countries. The idea is that if all countries play by the same trade rules, then all countries, rich or poor, will benefit. But some critics say WTO rules may hinder countries from setting their own priorities in environmental protection, worker rights, food security and other areas. And they say sudden reductions in import tariffs can wipe out industries, causing job losses in rich and poor countries.

Sears Holdings Corp. said Friday it will spin off its Lands’ End clothing business as a separate company by distributing stock to the retailer’s shareholders. spinning off others. Those moves helped it reduce net debt by $400 million and generated $1.8 billion in cash from the asset sales in the latest fiscal year. Sears also has been building a loyalty program called Shop Your Way, which accounts for 65 percent of its sales and has tens of millions of active customers. Still, Sears continues to face losses. In November

it reported a wider third quarter loss as revenue declined 7 percent to $8.27 as the company marked down goods heavily to move merchandise. Lands’ End, which sells clothing and home goods on the Internet and through catalogs, began in 1963 as a sailboat hardware and equipment catalog, but morphed into a clothing company by 1977. Sears bought the company in 2002.

NEW YORK – GPS will tell you how to get to the nearest Apple store. With iBeacon, Apple hopes to guide you around once you’re inside, whether it’s to pick up an order, upgrade to a new iPhone or shop for a pair of headphones. The implications of iBeacon go beyond Apple stores. One day, commuters might get information on subway delays as they stand on the platform, while museum visitors might get details on the painting they are standing in front of. Other retailers also will be able to offer deals or track which aisles shoppers linger in the longest. In-store location technology does raise privacy concerns, though many shoppers have shown a willingness to be tracked if there’s something in it for them.

••• I typically use this December column and the end of the year to reflect on some personal thoughts. Wonder Lake is a bright little community. It is filled with people from every walk of life. This year something extraordinary has

happened in little Wonder Lake, and it has been waiting to happen since the late 1960s. The last permit, of many permits, has finally been received and the dredging process for Wonder Lake can now begin. To some, this may be ho-hum news, but to those who remember the long journey and the many ups and downs over the past 45 or so years, it’s much more. It’s magical. What’s even sweeter is living here for 20 years and having the privilege to witness it. To watch the citizens who have given so unselfishly to work and educate and inform us every step of the way has been a gift. Whether you saw the importance of it or were opposed to it, one thing I think everyone would agree on is the passion that drove us

Solid U.S. job growth cuts unemployment Paul Ashworth, an economist at Capital Economics. Stock investors were heartened by the news. The Dow Jones industrial average surged nearly 178 points in early afternoon trading. The unemployment rate has fallen nearly a full percentage point since the Fed began buying bonds in September 2012 and has reached 7 percent earlier than most analysts had expected. In June, Chairman Ben Bernanke had suggested that the Fed would end its $85 billion in monthly bond purchases after the unemployment rate reached 7 percent. The Fed’s bond purchases have been intended to keep borrowing rates low. Bernanke later backed away from the 7 percent target. He cautioned that the Fed would weigh numerous economic factors in any decision it makes about its bond purchases. Many economists still think the Fed won’t begin to cut back until January or later. While the Fed weighs its options, U.S. employers may finally be gaining enough confidence in the economy, 4½ years after the recession officially ended, to ramp up hiring. In addition to the solid job gain and the drop in unemployment, Friday’s report offered other encouraging signs: • Higher-paying indus-

By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER The Associated Press WASHINGTON – The U.S. job market is proving surprisingly resilient. Solid job growth in November cut the U.S. unemployment rate to 7 percent, a five-year low. The robust gain suggested that the economy may have begun to accelerate. As more employers step up hiring, more people have money to spend to drive the economy. Employers added 203,000 jobs last month after adding 200,000 in October, the Labor Department said Friday. November’s job gain helped lower the unemployment rate from 7.3 percent in October. The economy has added a four-month average of 204,000 jobs from August through November, up sharply from 159,000 a month from April through July. “It’s hinting very, very strongly that the economy is starting to ramp up, that growth is getting better, that businesses are hiring,” said Joel Naroff, president of Naroff Economic Advisors. The job growth also has fueled speculation that the Federal Reserve will scale back its economic stimulus when it meets later this month. It “gives the Fed all the evidence it needs to begin tapering its asset purchases at the next ... meeting,” said

near a 35-year low. And America’s long-term unemployed are still struggling. More than four million people have been out of work for six months or longer. That figure was essentially unchanged in November. By contrast, the number of people who have been unemployed for less than six months fell last month. Among companies that are ramping up hiring is Eat24, which handles online restaurant deliveries. Eat24, based in San Francisco, expects this month to hire 10 to 15 salespeople, mobile application developers and data analysts, on top of its 150-person workforce. “The economy is picking up a little bit,” said Amir Eisenstein, the chief marketing officer. “In the last couple of years, the mobile market has boomed.” The steady decline in unemployment, from a high of 10 percent four years ago, is welcome news for the White House. But Jason Furman, President Barack Obama’s top economic adviser, said the plight of the long-term unemployed points to the need to extend emergency unemployment benefits. About 1.3 million people who’ve been out of work for six months or more will lose unemployment aid if a 5-yearold program to provide extra benefits expires on Dec. 28.

tries are adding more jobs. Manufacturers added 27,000 jobs, the most since March 2012. Construction companies added 17,000. The two industries have created a combined 113,000 jobs over the past four months. • Hourly wages are up. The average rose 4 cents in November to $24.15. It’s risen just 2 percent in the past year. But that’s ahead of inflation: Consumer prices are up only 0.9 percent in that time. • Employers are giving their workers more hours: The average work week rose to 34.5 hours from 34.4. A rule of thumb among economists is that a one-tenth hourly increase in the work week is equivalent to adding 300,000 jobs. • Hiring was broad-based. In addition to higher-paying industries, retailers added 22,300 jobs, restaurants, bars and hotels 20,800. Education and health care added 40,000. And after years of cutbacks, state and local governments are hiring again. In November, governments at all levels combined added 7,000 jobs. Still, the report contained some sour notes: Many Americans are still avoiding the job market, neither working nor looking for work. That’s one reason the unemployment rate has fallen in recent months. The percentage of adults either working or searching for jobs remains

to this point. Personally, I believe one man was the motivating force for everyone. But I know he would say it also was a collaboration of residents and committees and many of the remarkable organizations in Wonder Lake, working together. For me it’s been such a great experience to witness and be a part of. Along the way, my family and I have met many people who I am fortunate enough to call my friends. I raise my glass and thank you all. Have a safe, happy and healthy holiday season.

8IN BRIEF 23andMe to halt genetic reports related to health MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Genetic testing company 23andMe Inc. will comply with a Food and Drug Administration directive to stop providing access to healthrelated reports from its tests during a regulatory review. The Mountain View, Calif., company said late Thursday that it will continue to provide ancestry-related information to customers and raw genetic data without interpretation. Those customers could receive additional, health-related information in the future, depending on whether the FDA grants marketing authorization. Customers who bought kits since the FDA order came out late last month also will be eligible for refunds. 23andMe’s saliva-based test kit, launched more than five years ago, claims to tell customers if they are at risk for more than 250 diseases and health conditions. The company sells its tests online. Customers receive a small tube in the mail, which they return to the company with a saliva sample for DNA analysis.

U.S. consumer spending up 0.3 percent in October WASHINGTON – U.S. consumers increased their spending in October even though their wages and salaries barely in-

creased, raising questions about how strong the economy will grow at the end of the year. Consumer spending increased 0.3 percent in October compared with September when spending rose 0.2 percent, the Commerce Department reported Friday. Wages and salaries rose a slight 0.1 percent after a much stronger 1 percent rise in September. Overall income actually fell 0.1 percent following a 0.5 percent rise in September. But September’s gain was inflated by a legal settlement that boosted farm income that month, leading to a big decline in farm income in October. The personal saving rate dipped to 4.8 percent of aftertax income in October, down from 5.2 percent in September, reflecting the difference between spending and income. The rise in spending reflected gains in purchases of long-lasting manufactured goods such as autos and gains in spending on nondurable goods such as clothing and services such as rent and utilities. It meant a solid increase for the first month of the current quarter. Consumer spending is closely watched because it accounts for 70 percent of economic activity.

In yesterday’s deal, declarer had to take three club inesses with Q-9-3 opposite A-J-10-2. This required running the nine, the lower “high” card, irst, so that he could repeat the inesse two more times without needing an extra entry. I thought that was standard technique -- until I saw this deal. South gets to ive clubs. West leads the spade king. How should South approach the play? North might have bid one no-trump, but two clubs was preferable. If South had interest in three no-trump, he could have cue-bid in spades. Also, if South had something like queen-doubleton of spades, he ought to have been the no-trump declarer, not North. South has two losers in the black suits. So he must ind East with both red-suit kings, unlikely as that might seem. And being in the dummy for the last time, declarer has to take three inesses, two in diamonds and one in hearts. How? If South runs the diamond nine, what does he do next? If he leads dummy’s diamond 10, he will be stuck in his

hand with the jack. And if he plays the queen, East can cover with the king to put South into his hand. Instead, declarer must start with dummy’s diamond queen. If East covers, South wins, plays a diamond to dummy’s nine, and takes the heart inesse. Or, if East plays low, South unblocks his jack, then continues with the diamond nine. He can take all three inesses and make his contract. Bridge retains its appeal primarily because you can rarely use the words “always” and “never.”

TODAY - Embrace and experience personal change, but do so with moderation and restraint. Sticking to a budget or doing things on a shoestring will bring you far more satisfaction and less stress in the end. Honesty and integrity must be withheld. Rid yourself of negative influences. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Get back to basics and go over past experience in order to avoid making a repetitious mistake. Use your intelligence and initiate the changes you need to make. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Show how passionate you can be regarding a cause or belief you embrace. Your attention to detail and determination to reach a goal will leave an imprint. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Forget about your problems and take time out to enjoy friends, colleagues or family. Make positive personal physical changes that will help improve your health and your happiness. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Your greatest rewards will come from helping those less fortunate. New relationships will develop through your selfless actions. Others will notice and appreciate your generous spirit. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don’t overspend on luxury items. Keep life simple and focus more on what you can do to improve your position, reputation and future. Question your beliefs and your direction. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Make plans to spend time with people you find uplifting. Harmony will make up for any dilemmas or losses that you face. Put home and family first. Entertain the ones you love. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Take part in a crusade or event where you feel you can offer your services. Your sociable nature will make a difference to those you encounter. A partnership looks encouraging. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Make a difference to the people around you. Offer insightful suggestions and make a point to do your part to bring peace and happiness to those less fortunate. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Quickly handle any problem you face. Don’t take over; just offer suggestions. You don’t want to be labeled as a meddler. A short trip or meeting will lead to a big change. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Spend time with people who mean a lot to you. Participate in joint ventures, and you’ll acquire better insight into how you can help others. The benefits will be worth your while. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Take part in social activities that encourage greater communication. Find solutions to problems that face a core group, community or cause you want to help. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Fix up your place or look for ways to spice up your life. Small, unique alterations to the way you live will grab attention and give your love life a boost.

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

Dr. C. Matesi Licensed General Dentist

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

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

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

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

Dr. Shakeel Signature Dental Group 815-455-3300

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