builds the facility. The park district and Lake in the Hills village administration have put together a proposed annexation agreement for 27 acres of land at 8917 Ackman Road. Officials discussed the agreement at Tuesday’s Lake in the Hills Committee of the Whole

meeting. Lake in the Hills Village Board members are scheduled to next discuss the agreement in about two weeks. The park district is asking the village to annex the land and zone it for institutional building use. The park district potentially plans to build a community

recreation center and swimming facility sometime in the future. Under the draft annexation agreement, the village would waive its $1,000 per acre annexation fee, as well as lake/stream maintenance fees.

See REC CENTER, page A5

What’s next The Lake in the Hills Village Board members are scheduled to discuss a final annexation agreement at their next Committee of the Whole meeting Feb. 25, and potentially vote on the agreement Feb. 27.

‘THERE’S A LOT OF DECISION MAKING’

Costs affect college choices

Bill passes with little GOP support By ANDREW TAYLOR The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Unwilling to spook the markets and divided among themselves, House Republicans backed away from a battle over the government’s debt limit Tuesday and permitted President Barack Obama’s Democratic allies to drive quick passage of a measure extending the Treasury’s borrowing authority without any concessions from the White House. The 221-201 vote came hours after Speaker John Boehner announced that his fractured party would relent. Just 28 Republicans voted for the measure, including Boehner and his top lieutenants. But 193 Democrats more than compensated for the low support among Republicans. Senate Democrats hoped to vote on the legislation as early as Wednesday and send it to Obama for his signature. The move was denounced by many conservative groups but came after most Republicans in the House made clear they had no taste for another high-stakes fight with Obama over the nation’s debt ceiling, which must be raised so the

How they voted The House voted 221-201 Tuesday to extend the Treasury Department’s borrowing authority for another 13 months. McHenry County’s congressmen were split on the issue. U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam, R-Wheaton, voted in favor of the bill. U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren, R-Winfield, opposed it.

OHNSBURG – The process was really stressful, but Kara Stahl knows where she wants to go to college in the fall. “There’s a lot of things you have to fill out, the application, the scholarships and then you have to decide if you want to play a sport, if you want to go to a big school or a smaller school,” Stahl said. “There’s a lot of decision making, I guess.” The Johnsburg High School senior is still working out the financial aspect, but the plan is to

Counselors say more students cautious about taking out loans go to Augustana College in Rock Island. This is the time of year – after spending spring and summer of junior year visiting colleges and the fall of senior year filling out college applications – the college-bound turn their attention to figuring out how they’re going to pay to go to the school of their choice, filling out financial aid forms and applying for scholar-

ships. Many also will turn to student loans. About 64 percent of college graduates in Illinois have student loan debt, according to 2012 numbers compiled by the Project on Student Debt. Nationwide, outstanding student loan debt stood at $1.027 trillion at the end of September, according to the Federal Reserve.

Stahl isn’t worried about student loans, she said. She’d have to get some no matter where she goes, and said it will be a manageable amount. But a growing number of high school students are looking cautiously at student loans, said Megan Stenberg, a guidance counselor at Johnsburg High School. “A lot of students now, they’re more aware of student loans, and so I think their worry is that they don’t want to take out student loans,” she said. “They’re afraid of them, and I think that’s the biggest

Survey seeks suggestions to improve county Even though McHenry County is a great place to live, it still could be better, right? So if you’ve ever thought to yourself that something needs to be done, here’s a chance to let your voice be heard. Those who live and work in the county are invited to take the 2014 McHenry County Healthy Community Survey. Local health and human service organizations are seeking your opinions about the quantity and quality of services being offered in the area, with the goal of filling in the gaps. Previous surveys in 2006 and 2010 have led to initiatives to combat obesity, improve cardiovascular health and create a 211 referral system for services. In case you hadn’t heard, the 211 service is now available, offering a database of 400 providers. “It will walk you through the process,” said Debra Quackenbush, community information coordinator

8LOTTERY

VIEWS Joan Oliver for the McHenry County Department of Health, one of the 12 agencies involved in the survey. So the surveys have made a difference in the past. You can find this year’s survey online at the health department’s website at www.mcdh.info under “Healthy McHenry,” and it will be available until Feb. 15. Participants who take the 10- to 15-minute survey will be asked about public transportation, bike and walking paths, jobs, safe neighborhoods, insurance and health issues. The surveys are anonymous, so participants can be brutally honest. And they can skip questions if they’d prefer, Quackenbush said. “Give us your voice,” she said. “Be as blunt as you’d like.”

Those without access to computers can call Quackenbush at 815-334-4456 to get a paper version. You also can call her if you have questions. The findings will be presented at a community forum from 9 a.m. to noon May 21 at McHenry County College in Crystal Lake. The results of previous surveys can be found on the health department’s website. In addition to the online and paper surveys, the initiative also includes interviews of business leaders, a community analysis and a focus group, Quackenbush said. The goal is to provide grassroots level data that can be used to obtain grants for needed services, as well as to see where needs exist, she said. And in this time of doing more with less, it can offer research backed opportunities for collaboration. “It makes more sense to work collaboratively,” Quackenbush said. The providers behind the study are Advocate Good Shepherd and Sherman hospitals, Centegra Health

System, Family Alliance, McHenry County College, McHenry County Community Foundation, McHenry County Department of Health, McHenry County Mental Health Board, Pioneer Center for Human Services, Senior Services Associates Inc., United Way of Greater McHenry County and Woodstock School District 200. Those who live and work here are encouraged to take the survey even if they don’t use any of the services of these agencies. The idea is to get a good picture of how to make the community even better. “The survey is such a key piece,” Quackenbush said. “What do you need? We need to hear from you.”

AG urges restoring ex-inmates’ voting rights The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – Attorney General Eric Holder called on a group of states Tuesday to restore voting rights to ex-felons, part of a push to fix what he sees as flaws in the criminal justice system that have a disparate impact on racial minorities. “It is time to fundamentally rethink laws that permanently disenfranchise people who are no longer under federal or state supervision,” Holder said, targeting 11 states that he said continue to restrict voting rights for former inmates, even after they’ve fin-

ished their prison terms. “Across this country today, an estimated 5.8 million Americans – 5.8 million of our fellow citizens – are prohibited from voting because of current or previous felony convictions,” Holder told a symposium on criminal justice at Georgetown University. The 11 states identified by the Justice Department as restricting voting rights are Arizona, Florida, Alabama, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, Wyoming, Tennessee and Virginia. Now into his fifth year as attorney general and hinting that this year might be his

last, Holder survived political controversies that, early on, placed him on the defensive. Now, he is doubling down on the kinds of issues that have long held his interest during a career in law enforcement – prison overcrowding, overly harsh mandatory drug sentences and school disciplinary policies that he says push kids into street crime. Congress used to be the place that highlighted Holder’s problems, including a plan to try terrorists in New York City and the failed Justice Department investigation of gun smuggling in Arizona that ended in the death of a

border patrol agent. Now, Holder is talking about partnering up with conservative lawmakers like Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who shares concerns such as mandatory minimum prison sentences that can put away low-level drug offenders for decades. On Tuesday, Holder took note of the fact that Paul was to be a participant in the criminal justice symposium later in the morning. On a topic with racial overtones, Holder said 2.2 million black citizens, or nearly one in 13 African-American adults, are banned from voting because of these laws.

Ill. treasurer lawsuit worries watchdog groups The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – While a federal lawsuit against Illinois Treasurer Dan Rutherford has publicized salacious sexual harassment allegations, government watchdog groups say the lawsuit’s claims of political corruption are just as worrisome as the Republican campaigns for governor. Rutherford, who has strongly denied allegations

Judge stays secret docs order in Ill. terror case The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – A federal judge said Tuesday she’ll wait for the appeals process to run its course before implementing her ruling that gives lawyers for a Chicago terrorism suspect access to secret documents spelling out how the U.S. government sought permission to spy on him. The potentially far-reaching ruling last month was the first time any defense attorneys were granted permission to see such applications to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, established in 1978, U.S. District Judge Sharon Johnson said at the time. At a hearing Tuesday, she agreed to prosecutors’ request to stay her ruling, meaning the documents will remain closed at least until the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals issues an opinion. Depending on the outcome, either side could then appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. The question of whether the secret-court, or FISA court, application will be shown in its entirety to Adel

Daoud’s attorneys is being closely watched nationwide. Daoud, a 20-year-old U.S. citizen from suburban Chicago who pleaded not guilty to charges he took a phony bomb from undercover agents and sought to detonate it by a Chicago bar in 2012. Lawyers for two brothers in Florida accused of plotting to detonate bombs in New York City submitted Coleman’s Jan. 29 ruling to their federal judge in Miami a day after she ruled, supplementing their own, still-pending motion to see the secret-court application in their case. Ronald Chapman, the lawyer for one of the two suspects, Sheheryar Qazi, said in a phone interview Tuesday that it was unfair that attorneys in non-terrorism cases typically get to see warrant applications – but not in terrorism cases. “But when it comes to FISA, we have to say, ‘Judge we trust your judgment ... You tell us if there is anything wrong with the evidence [contained in the government’s application],” he said.

paign weeks ahead of the March 18 contest. In the lawsuit, Edmund Michalowski, a former lawyer and director in Rutherford’s office, alleges a “long-standing pattern” of being forced to engage in political activity while working for the state. Even the hint of such political corruption could taint Rutherford ahead of the primary, and it raises troubling questions, experts say, espe-

The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – Where just months ago Republicans brimmed with pride over Chris Christie’s landslide re-election, doubts about his prospects as a potential presidential candidate have begun creeping into the minds of some donors in key states, according to some GOP fundraisers. The celebrity New Jersey governor is in Chicago Tuesday to raise money for the Republican Governors Association that he chairs. While Christie gets credit for helping raise millions of dollars to help hold the GOP’s edge in governorships this fall, what was supposed to be a re-election victory tour featuring him as a rising national leader has sparked a different conversation. Ann Herberger, a national Republican fundraiser based in Florida, said Christie’s robust persona and blunt style can pack a room. Some donors, however, have expressed reservations about his future because of the flap over the closure of two access lanes to the heavily traveled

GILLESPIE – There have been delays rebuilding a tornado-damaged high school gym in southern Illinois. A tornado ripped off part of a wall of Gillespie High School gym last May. Superintendent Joe Tieman said there have been setbacks in the effort to rebuild the gym. He told The (Alton) Telegraph those include issues with insurance claims, power lines and the harsh winter weather. Tieman said officials thought the gym would be repaired by March, but now it’s looking more like May.

BARSTOW – Authorities say a 29-year-old Coal Valley man died after a snowmobile accident in western Illinois. The Moline Dispatch reports Christopher Alstedt died late Sunday after a crash near Zuma Creek in Barstow. Rock Island County Coroner Brian Gustafson said Alstedt died from “traumatic head and neck injuries.” Illinois Conservation Police Capt. Robert Frazier said authorities believe Alstedt hit his head on the bottom of a bridge as he drove underneath.

denied authorizing or knowing about the scheme until the emails became public last month. “There are influential donors who are giving him a second and third look,” Herberger said of Christie. “Where they would have been ‘this is the guy’ two months ago, I think a lot of people are giving him a second look and keeping their powder dry.” “But that could change, too,” said Herberger. “There’s

so much time between now and the primaries.” Herberger is a longtime fundraiser for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, another 2016 GOP presidential prospect. While her comments echoed those of some fundraisers in a handful of battleground states, far more Republican donors and officials are publicly withholding judgment on Christie until it’s clear whether his adamant denial of involvement in the lane closures withstands scrutiny. If it does, he survives as a 2016 prospect. If it doesn’t, he’s finished, his most vocal advocates agree. Christie has said he won’t decide for another year whether to run for president. “I’m just not seeing” donor apprehension, said Phil Cox, executive director of the Republican Governors Association. “We’re off to a historically strong start.” Christie’s political future aside, the RGA has raised $15 million since December, when Christie became its chairman, said Gail Gitcho, the association’s communication director.

Ill. high school grads Durbin urges more stores score higher on AP exams to stop selling tobacco WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin is among eight senators urging more drugstore chains to follow the example of CVS Caremark by ending the sale of cigarettes and other tobacco products. CVS Caremark Corp. said last week it will phase out tobacco in its 7,600 stores nationwide as it shifts toward being more of a health care provider. The Illinois Democrat and other senators sent letters Monday to chief executives of Walgreen, Rite Aid and the National Association of Chain Drug Stores. The senators urged them to also stop selling tobacco products and promote stop-smoking efforts.

8STATE BRIEFS SPRINGFIELD – A report released Tuesday shows Illinois is at the national average for high school graduates scoring high enough for college credit on exams, but low-income and black students still lag in performance and participation in the college prep courses. According to an Advanced Placement Program report, 21 percent of the state’s high school graduates in Illinois received a three or higher on at least one AP exam, which is typically the score needed for college credit. The national average was 20 percent in 2013. Participation and performance in Advanced Placement coursework is up across the country and in Illinois the past 10 years.

H. Joseph Gitlin, Attorney Joe Gitlin of Woodstock was listed as one of the nation’s top 43 divorce lawyers in the National Law Journal and is listed in The Best Lawyers in America. He is also ranked as an Illinois Leading Lawyer (member of Advisory Board) and Super Lawyer.

Q: Why do most divorce lawyers not give an estimate, or ballpark figure, for the cost of a divorce? A: The line from A to Z to obtain a divorce for the plaintiff (the person initiating the divorce proceedings) is a straight one. There are certain known tasks to be done before the divorce can be finalized. A straight line, however, can only be walked if the defendant (the spouse being sued for divorce) does not respond to the summons and is therefore defaulted. Defaults, however, are extremely rare. Most spouses have too much to protect to allow the other side to pick up virtually all the marbles as happens in a default divorce. What makes fees unpredictable is the unknown. It is not known how the other spouse will react and what the other spouse will do. Here the “jerk” factor enters into play, that is, how reasonable are you and how reasonable is your spouse. The more unreasonable your spouse, the more work your lawyer has to do and the larger your fees will be.

Q: What should your lawyer tell you about fees? A: (A) The amount of the retention fee. The retention fee is a fee that is paid to secure the services of the lawyer and, in most cases, it is a credit against future billings. (B) You should be informed of the lawyer’s hourly rate and the lowest possible time charge which will apply to such items as short telephone consultations. (C) Your lawyer should tell you how often he or she bills clients and when that bill must be paid. Some lawyers have payment plans, that is, so much per month on account. Other lawyers have no “payment plan,” it is simply that the monthly bills must be paid by the next month.

extensive investigation (“discovery”) must be done, or child custody may be involved. I will illustrate why averaging does not work. Assume a lawyer had 36 divorce cases in a year. While these figures are unlikely, assume that 18 of the cases were complex and the fees in each case were approximately $70,000. Next assume that the other half of the cases were relatively simple and the fees were approximately $6,500 in each case. Calculating these figures produces an average fee of $38,250. The average is meaningless as far as projecting a fee goes. If it is a relatively simple divorce, the average fee of $38,250 is totally unrealistic. If the case is complex, $38,250 is unrealistically low.

Q: If a lawyer’s divorce fees cannot be estimated, can you give an average fee for a divorce? A: Yes, but I do not give out average fee figures, nor do I calculate them. If I were to calculate average fees, I would add up all the fees I received for a particular period, like 12 months, and divide them by the number of divorces completed during the 12-month period. After five decades of divorce cases I know that each case is unique, because the people involved are unique. There is no typical, or average, case. Some of the fees charged by lawyers are high. This is usually because there are complex issues, like the valuation of a business or that the extent of assets and income is not known by the economically disadvantaged spouse and therefore

Q: How can I realistically budget for a divorce if I do not know how much it will cost me? A: You cannot. If you are the economically disadvantaged party (your spouse is the major, or sole, income producer) you may well need financial help from family or friends, but you will also receive assistance from your economically advantaged spouse. The law provides for “interim” (temporary) fees to be awarded. You are entitled to be informed of how much the economically advantaged spouse has paid to his lawyer and the court should enter an order “leveling the playing field,” that is, seeing to it that your spouse is ordered to pay you the same amount that he paid to his lawyers.

Nuclear reform push looks to old ideas By ROBERT BURNS The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Five years ago the Air Force considered a series of proposals to boost morale and fix performance and security lapses in its nuclear missile corps, according to internal emails and documents obtained by The Associated Press. But many fell short or died on the vine, and now, with the force again in crisis, it’s retracing those earlier steps. The new effort is more far-reaching, on a tighter timetable and backed by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel. So it appears to hold more promise for an Air Force under scrutiny after a variety of embarrassing setbacks and missteps raised questions about whether some of the world’s most fearsome weapons are being properly managed. The earlier approach, shown in internal Air Force documents and emails from 2008-09, included some of the ideas being floated again today by a new set of Air Force leaders, including bonus pay and other incentives to make more attractive the work of the men and women who operate, maintain and secure an Air Force fleet of 450 Minuteman 3 nuclear-tipped missiles.

A mock-up of a Minuteman 3 nuclear missile used for training by missile maintenance crews is seen at F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyo. In launching an ambitious campaign to boost morale in a troubled nuclear missile corps, the Air Force is retracing steps it took at least five years ago, revisiting proposed reforms that were abandoned or fell short of fixing problems that persist. duty onerous. “Keep the faith,” one commander wrote to his ICBM troops in an email in early 2009. Faith, however, seemed to falter. A series of AP reports last year documented training failures, low morale, deliberate violations of security rules, leadership lapses and other missteps. The AP also disclosed an unpublished

study that found evidence of “burnout” and frustration among missile launch officers and ICBM security forces. In response, Hagel said something must be done promptly to restore public confidence in the nuclear force and ensure the weapons are under competent control. Hagel came forward shortly after the disclosure of an Air Force drug investigation and an exam-cheating scan-

dal within the ICBM force whose full dimensions are still being investigated. Hagel has given the Air Force wide latitude to find solutions to what he called “personnel failures,” but he wants action by late March. In January, the new Air Force secretary, Deborah Lee James, visited all three ICBM missile bases. She picked up on people’s worries about career advancement opportuni-

ties in the force and wondered whether incentive pay, ribbons, medals and other recognition should be provided. Hagel also has raised the possibility of incentives to make the ICBM career field more attractive, while noting that money is not the main motivator for most in the nuclear weapons field. Col. Robert W. Stanley II, commander of the 341st Missile Wing, which operates 150 Minuteman 3 missiles at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Mont., said in a recent AP interview that incentives would be welcome. “We’ve been asking for that for a long, long time,” Stanley said. The idea is that fattening paychecks might attract more people to the ICBM career field, while removing some of the mission’s burdens might stop people from leaving it the first chance they get. But some who have studied military personnel issues say they doubt financial incentives would make much difference, pointing instead to more fundamental problems. “If the missile force can’t convince its people that what they are doing is really important, that it isn’t a military and strategic backwater and/or obsolete, no combination of programmatic incentives can really fix things,” said Robert Goldich, who was a defense policy specialist for three decades at the Congressional Research Service.

House approves bill restoring military pensions It would halt cut in cost-of-living raises By DAVID ESPO The Associated Press WASHINGTON – The House voted overwhelmingly Tuesday to restore full costof-living increases to pension benefits for younger military retirees, responding eagerly to election-year pressure from veterans groups. The Senate debated a similar bill as lawmakers has-

tened to reverse course on the most controversial cut contained in budget legislation approved less than two months ago. Approval of the measure was never in doubt in the House, where the final vote was 326-90. Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick, R-Pa., said the bill would “protect the promises that this nation has made to our veterans.” He called on Congress to “care for those who have borne the battle and to send that message to all who can hear it.”

Rep. Adam Smith, D-Wash., argued that overturning last year’s relatively modest change in pensions would eventually cause military readiness to erode as the Pentagon struggles to adjust to budget restrictions. “We’ve got to make some hard choices. This bill doesn’t do it. It punts in every conceivable way,” he said. Under the bill in the Republican-controlled House, a cut in cost-of-living increases for military retirees under age 62 would be eliminated before it is scheduled to take

French leader joins sanction speech The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – Juggling a pair of tenuous diplomatic efforts, President Barack Obama on Tuesday vowed to come down like “a ton of bricks” on businesses that violate Iranian sanctions while nuclear negotiations are underway. He also conceded “enormous frustration” with stalled Syrian peace talks and offered little hope of ending the conflict soon. Obama spoke during a joint White House news conference with French President Francois Hollande, a key partner on both Syria and Iran. The leaders have aimed to project a united front on the two matters, but a trip to Tehran last

week by French executives has irked U.S. officials who are seeking to tamp down the notion that a temporary easing of sanctions opened Iran up for business. In a blistering warning, Obama said companies exploring economic opportunities in Iran “do so at their own peril right now because we will come down on them like a ton of bricks.” Hollande sought to distance himself from the executives’ trip, saying through a translator that the French business community is “very much aware of this situation.” Obama welcomed Hollande to the White House on Tuesday morning for a lavish state visit, an honor typically

bestowed on America’s closest allies. However, the visit has been overshadowed somewhat by Hollande’s recent romantic woes. The 59-year-old split last month from his longtime girlfriend and French first lady, Valerie Trierweiler, after it was revealed that he was having an affair with an actress. The White House has carefully avoided any mention of Hollande’s personal problems and welcomed him to the U.S. with all of the grandeur that normally accompanies a state visit. The U.S. came close to launching a strike against Syria after a chemical weapons attack there last year, an effort France was ready to join.

effect in 2015. The $7 billion cost of the measure would be more than offset by extending pre-existing cuts in Medicare and other government programs for an additional year, through 2024. The change to cost-ofliving benefits was part of a budget bill that Congress approved late last year, and several lawmakers in both parties said at the time they would attempt to reverse it quickly in the new year. At issue was retirement income for veterans with at least 20 years of military

Widest earnings gap for college grads in 48 years WASHINGTON – The earnings gap between young adults with and without bachelor’s degrees has stretched to its widest level in nearly half a century. It’s a sign of the growing value of a college education despite rising tuition costs, according to an analysis of census data released Tuesday. Young adults with just a high school diploma earned 62 percent of the typical salary of college graduates. That’s down from 81 percent in 1965, the earliest year for which comparable data are available. The analysis by the Pew Research Center shows the increasing economic difficulties for young adults who lack a bachelor’s degree in today’s economy that’s polarized between high- and low-wage work. As a whole, high school graduates were more likely to live in poverty and be dissatisfied with their jobs, if not unemployed. In contrast, roughly nine in 10 college graduates ages 25 to 32 said their bachelor’s degree had paid off or will pay off in the future, according to Pew’s separate polling conducted last year.

3 years after Mubarak, abuses reported in Egypt CAIRO – On the third anniversary of the day Hosni Mubarak stepped down as Egypt’s president after an 18-day uprising, the government blocked access to Tahrir Square on Tuesday and letters emerged from activists reporting that they have been beaten and subjected to other abuses by police after being arrested in a string of protests in late January. The anniversary took place amid a somber mood in Egypt. Human rights groups denounced what they say are new cases of torture, and warned against a silencing of dissent. The new military-backed government says it is fighting a deadly upsurge in Islamic militant violence.

service. The Pentagon’s figures show nearly 2 million retirees receive pensions at an annual cost to the government of $4.5 billion a year. Of them, about 840,000 are under 62 and would be affected by the legislation that passed in December to hold annual cost of living benefits one percentage point below the rate of inflation beginning next year. Critics of the change said that would mean a reduction of nearly $72,000 in benefits over a lifetime for a sergeant first class who retires at age 42.

Plane crash kills 77; 1 man survives Craft hit Algerian mountainside; weather blamed The ASSOCIATED PRESS ALGIERS, Algeria – An Algerian military transport plane slammed into a mountain Tuesday in the country’s rugged eastern region, killing 77 people and leaving just one survivor, the defense ministry said. Air traffic controllers lost radio and radar contact with the U.S.-built C-130 Hercules turboprop just before noon and dispatched helicopters to try to find it. The plane was discovered in pieces on Mount Fortas near the town of Ain Kercha, 30 miles southeast of Constantine, the main city in eastern Algeria. The plane was heading to Constantine from the southern Saharan city of Tamanrasset, which has a massive military presence due to its proximity to the country’s unstable southern borders. It was at least 24 years old, according to sales information supplied by its maker, Lock-

heed Martin Corp. The plane carried 74 passengers and four crew members, the military said in its statement, blaming poor weather for the crash. Earlier in the day, Algerian government officials and Algerian state media had reported that the plane had 99 passengers, making for a much higher death toll. The lone survivor – a soldier – suffered head injuries and was treated at a nearby military facility before being flown to the military hospital in Algiers, a retired Algerian intelligence officer told The Associated Press. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the press. Civil defense officials at the snowy crash site said the plane broke into three parts and women and children were among the dead. Military transports in Algeria routinely carry not only soldiers but military families and sometimes even other civilians, if space is available. Commander Farid Nechad, who was coordinating recovery efforts, told the AP that 55 bodies had been recovered so far but conditions at the crash site were difficult.

8WORLD BRIEF

Belgium set to extend right to die to children BRUSSELS – Belgium, one of the very few countries where euthanasia is legal, is expected to take the unprecedented step this week of abolishing age restrictions on who can ask to be put to death – extending the right to children for the first time.

• REC CENTER Continued from page A1 The village would not charge the park district for building inspections done by village employees. However, the park district would have to pay for any inspections the village has to outsource. In exchange, the park district would offer Lake in the Hills residents – who don’t live in the park district boundaries – a special rate to use the potential community recreation center and aquatic center. Lake in the Hills residents would be charged no more than the midpoint between the park district resident fee and the nonresident fee, under the draft agreement.

Under current law, they must let nature take its course or wait until they turn 18 and can ask to be euthanized. The Belgian Senate voted 50-17 on Dec. 12 to amend the country’s 2002 law on euthanasia so that it would apply to minors, but only under certain additional conditions.

– Wire report

Trustee Stephen Harlfinger said he was happy to see the special user fees for Lake in the Hills residents at the potential facility. “If they’re willing to work with us, as far as that special fee, I think that’s an agreeable stance,” Harlfinger said. The proposed annexation agreement would be in place for 20 years if approved. It also allows the park district to obtain potable water from another entity, such as the city of Crystal Lake or village of Lakewood, if Lake in the Hills cannot supply sufficient water. The park district plans to purchase the property, which is the old Crystal Highlands Golf Course, for $625,000 from property owner Sara Wirkus. If the park district doesn’t complete the purchase, the

agreement and planned zoning would be null and void, according to a letter written by village attorney Michael Smoron. “The thought being that the village is annexing the property with the expectation that the park district will develop it with recreational amenities,” Smoron wrote. “If that is not the case, the village would wish to negotiate a different annexation agreement, with much different terms, with a private sector purchaser.” Park District Executive Director Jason Herbster said the key focus of the potential project would be a recreation center that can be used yearround. It could have a fitness center, indoor walking track and general purpose rooms,

among other things, Herbster said. The center would act as a gathering spot for people of all ages, Herbster said. He added a potential project would most likely need referendum approval. The park district doesn’t have money in its tax levy or its fund balances to pay for the project. To be good neighbors to nearby houses near the western border of the property, the park district plans to have a 150-foot setback for parking and 200-foot setback for any building. Normal setbacks are 25 feet. The park district also would provide plans for lighting, building layout, landscaping, among other things to the village, as part of the annexation agreement.

FROM PAGE 1

Parents voice financial concerns • COLLEGE Continued from page A1 difference. Years ago, you didn’t really think like that.” JC Brown, a counselor at Prairie Ridge High School in Crystal Lake, agrees that the word “loan” scares students. On the financial aid and scholarship handout Prairie Ridge’s college and career center gives students, the flip side now lays out a college loan repayment schedule, showing students what their payments would look like depending on how much they take out in loans. “It’s gotten so expensive, and with the economy and how it’s been for the last couple of years, it’s definitely on parents’ mind and students’ minds,” Brown said. “I’ve noticed a lot more students working to help pay for college.” Parents especially are verbalizing their concerns about the financial side more than they used too, said Shannon Landwehr, the director of Woodstock High School’s counseling office. “I think that especially before 2008, there was a feeling that, yes, I’ll take out the loans,” she said. “It won’t be a big deal. I think students are realizing – probably because they’re hearing from their parents – the money tree is

not right outside our house. It doesn’t exist.” The switch in perspective comes as the delinquency rate for student loans surges. The share of delinquent student loans exceeded the share of delinquent credit card balances in 2012, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The rate of loan holders that are 90 or more days delinquent was at 11.8 percent at the end of September. The average Illinois student that attended a four-year college will leave school with about $28,000 in debt, ranking Illinois 15th in terms of student loan debt, according to the Project on Student Debt. But none of the counselors wanted finances to limit where students look. It’s a common misconception that private schools always cost more than public ones, Stenberg said, adding that private colleges can often offer more in terms of grants and scholarships. High schools also are offering paths to help keep college affordable. Brown wants Prairie Ridge students to take at least three elective courses in careers they’re thinking about pursuing, so they have a better idea of whether this is really the right path for them before they’re halfway through their freshman year of college.

Brown attended a two-year community college before transferring to Lewis University, and so he’s also in favor of attending a two-year community college as a method for keeping costs down. That route raises some concerns for Stenberg, though, because many students struggle to make the transition from a two-year program to a four-year one. Credits failing to transfer and difficulties making social connections can derail the switch. “Going away to college is a great experience, personally, academically and I think everyone should have the opportunity to do that,” she said. “Don’t let the financial piece scare you away from your dreams.” The way schools look at post-secondary education is changing, Landwehr said. “At least in our district there is a realization that you need some education and training after high school, and while you may not realize what that is as an 18-year-old in high school, we want to provide you with the opportunity to what you want after high school,” Landwehr said. And that education may not be at a four-year college, she said, adding that technical schools, associate programs and other training are becoming more acceptable.

Measure pushes issue back 13 months • DEBT CEILING Continued from page A1 government can borrow money to pay all of its bills. The bill would permit the Treasury Department to borrow normally for another 13 months, putting off the chance of a debt crisis well past the November elections and providing time for a newly elected Congress to decide how to handle the issue. Just Monday, Republicans

suggested pairing the debt measure with legislation to roll back a recent cut in the inflation adjustment of pension benefits for working age military retirees. Democrats insisted on a debt measure completely clean of unrelated legislation. “The full faith and credit [of the United States] should be unquestioned and it is not negotiable,” said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. The vote comes four

months after Washington defused a government shutdown and debt crisis that burned Republicans politically. Tuesday’s developments, which many Capitol Hill insiders saw coming, mark a reversal of the GOP’s strategy of trying to use the debt limit to force spending cuts or other concessions on Obama. The president yielded to such demands in 2011 – before his re-election – but has since boxed in Republicans by refusing to negotiate.

Proceed with caution on Randall Road Anyone who has ever driven on Randall Road in Algonquin and Lake in the Hills on a busy Saturday or during the morning and evening commutes is all too familiar with the congestion. The McHenry County Board is trying to do something about that stretch of Randall Road, including at the intersection of Randall and Algonquin roads. That’s a good For the record thing. How the County Board is A balance must be struck going about acbetween what’s good for busicomplishing that ness and moving traffic along. is a little disturbing. The County Board last week approved up to $15.9 million for the design phase of the Randall Road widening project, which will widen a 3.5-mile stretch of the congested shopping corridor to six lanes from its start at Ackman Road south to the Kane County line, and add dual left-turn lanes and exclusive right-turn lanes at major signal intersections. That’s a hefty price tag, and we implore the County Board to spend taxpayer money wisely. One controversial part of the project is the possibility of installing a continuous flow intersection at the Randall-Algonquin intersection. The County Board granted a $9.1 million contract to TranSystems to design the entire project. Some County Board members say that part of the $9.1 million is to determine whether a continuous flow intersection is the best option and that no final determination has been made. Others point out that the way the contract is written and the fact that a large sum of federal dollars are available for a continuous flow intersection, indicate such an intersection is all but guaranteed. We hope the former is true but suspect the latter is more accurate. A complete study on how a continuous flow intersection would affect businesses and residents in the area should happen before any decision is made. If installing such an intersection is severely detrimental to business in the area, the County Board should seek alternatives. A balance must be struck between what’s good for business and moving traffic along. And it must be done without wasting taxpayers’ money.

Bring on the chip-and-PIN If you worry about your privacy and carry a credit card, the Target data breach ought to be a startling wake-up call. A massive theft from card-swiping machines between Nov. 27 and Dec. 18 took information such as numbers and names from about 40 million customers and compromised personal information – names, addresses, email addresses or phone numbers – from about 70 million. Although there may be overlap, perhaps one in four people in the U.S. were exposed to fraud and potential loss of privacy. The data were siphoned off by crooks and sent abroad. How did it happen? According to John Mulligan, Target’s executive vice president and chief financial officer, who testified Feb. 4 before the Senate Judiciary Committee, intruders crept into Target’s network and installed malware designed to skim off credit- and debit-card information. Chastened, Mulligan told the Senate panel that Target was accelerating a $100 million investment to convert to so-called chip-and-PIN technology that is more secure. He pledged that Target would have it in place early next year, six months earlier than planned. Mulligan’s response raises a larger question: Why isn’t the U.S. as a whole moving more quickly toward chip-and-PIN technology? The answer is that it is coming, next year, but the transition involves costs that stores, card companies and banks have been reluctant to bear. When Europeans adopted the technology more than a decade ago, they lacked a continent-wide online verification system, so the new approach made sense, allowing verification on site. But such an online verification system did exist in North America. Since then, however, the magnetic swipe cards have become much more vulnerable. The chip-and-PIN technology is now widely used in Europe and is being adopted around the world. These cards have data embedded on a chip, and the user inserts the card and inputs a personal identification number. This two-step verification process is more secure, although not ironclad, because the data still can be transmitted through networks and subject to theft. Consumers in the U.S. have generally been shielded from liability for fraud on their cards and have grown complacent. They ought to be angry at the industry’s lag. Privacy needs to be The Washington Post protected.

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Move on immigration reform To the Editor: After years of advocacy from the faith community, it appears Democrats and Republicans are ready to move forward on immigration reform. President Obama has called on Congress to pass immigration reform, and House Republicans presented their Standards on Immigration Reform, which outline their priorities for addressing the broken immigration system. During the State of the Union address, President Obama spoke about the benefits of reform: “When people come here to fulfill their dreams … they make our country a more attractive place for businesses to locate and create jobs for everyone. ... So let’s get immigration reform done this year.” Likewise, the GOP plans to address all aspects of the outdated immigration system in 2014. Its standards include fixes to our legal immigration system, improvements in border security and internal enforcement, and opportunities for undocumented immigrants – including those who were brought here as children – to get right with the law and come out of the shadows. As a regional organizer with Bread for the World and a man of

faith, I am encouraged by these signs. Bread and the other members of the Evangelical Immigration Table will continue to push for compassionate, biblically based reform in the months ahead. Like food security, poverty and human trafficking, immigration reform is a moral issue that Christians have and will continue to rally around. Now that these standards have been released, I pray that Congressman Hultgren will join with other members of his party to ensure that immigration reform has its day in 2014.

chant Marine. No matter to what age group I engage in this topic, the outcome is the same. What I am implying here is that history will be written without many knowing that the Merchant Marine delivered the war material when needed. Imagine a beachhead that didn’t get its supplies. They would be captured – or worse. It took all of us, working as a team, to defeat the enemy. Our troops needed the tanks, airplanes, food, ammunition, medical supplies and other items needed for the war effort. When we think of World War II, let us remember the Army, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard and the Merchant Marine. Leonard G. Buresh Crystal Lake

A trust deficit between Obama, Boehner Most people accept the notion that politicians don’t always tell the truth. Some lies are harmless enough; others more consequential. Lyndon Johnson skirted the truth when he promised during the 1964 presidential campaign not to send any more American troops to fight a land war in Southeast Asia. He knew then that American intervention would eventually be necessary, but the lie helped him win the election. After the election, Johnson sent additional troops, more American lives were lost and the war escalated. Richard Nixon claimed he knew nothing about Watergate. “I am not a crook,” he said. Lies. In 1976, Jimmy Carter promised never to lie to us, a promise that rested on a perception of his own virtue. Given his sad record, the country might have willingly exchanged veracity for competence. Bill Clinton? We know about one of his most famous lies, emphasized by that wagging finger and video showing him lying under oath as he labored

VIEWS Cal Thomas to define the word “is.” Clinton’s lies led to his impeachment. The public didn’t seem to care that much because as Democrats and the media repeatedly said, it was “just about sex” and everyone lies about sex. Former CBS News anchor Dan Rather had a curious spin on lying when he told Fox’s Bill O’Reilly that even though Clinton lied about not having sex with Monica Lewinsky, he still believed Clinton to be an honest man: “I think you can be an honest person and lie about any number of things,” Rather said. George W. Bush was accused of lying when he justified invading Iraq and toppling Saddam Hussein by claiming he had weapons of mass destruction. WMDs never were found. President Obama’s most famous lie (so far) has been his promise: “If you like your [insurance] plan you can keep it.”

8THE FIRST AMENDMENT

Same with your doctor, he said. And he promised health insurance and treatment costs would go down under Obamacare. Not for everyone. Oops. According to CNN.com, former congressional chief of staff and Washington lobbyist Ed Uravic, author of the book “Lying Cheating Scum,” claims, “Every president has not only lied at some time, but needs to lie to be effective.” A president can lie up to a point, but when a president’s lies extend beyond protecting the country (white lies) and drift into a darker area that is self-serving (black lies) it is something quite different, often prompting public rejection when he’s exposed. Speaker John Boehner said he and his fellow Republicans no longer can trust the president because of what they believe is his repeated lies. Last week, Boehner said House Republicans are not prepared to move ahead on immigration reform this year because they do not trust President Obama to follow the law. Boehner and his GOP colleagues

are particularly disturbed by the president’s assertions he can go around Congress when he wants to, changing the health care law and writing executive orders when it suits his fancy. Claiming an American president is not trustworthy ruins whatever credibility he brought to the office and this president brought a lot. Most people wanted to believe in him and a large majority did believe in him at the start. Many no longer do, as his declining approval ratings demonstrate. In dealing with the Soviet Union, Ronald Reagan employed a Russian proverb, “trust but verify.” Boehner and the Republicans seem to be saying there is no need to verify with this president, because he can’t be trusted. The inability by a major party to trust a president is more than lamentable; it is not good for the country and our standing before other nations and groups that wish to do us harm. • Readers may email Cal Thomas at tcaeditors@tribune. com.

POLICE LOOKING AT HIT-AND-RUN CARY – Police are investigating a hit-and-run vehicle accident that occurred Saturday. About 5:30 p.m. Saturday behind the Jewel grocery store, an unknown vehicle struck another vehicle and then fled the scene west on Three Oaks Road, said Sgt. Mike Roth. The car, possibly a Nissan, was driven by a darkskinned male, possibly 19 or 20 years old, Roth said. Police did a search for the offending vehicle, but could not find it, Roth said. Anyone with information about the hit-and-run is asked to call the Cary Police Department at 847-639-2341. – Joseph Bustos

Breaking news @ www.NWHerald.com

D-12 looks at moving classes Board discusses options for relocating third and fourth grades By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com JOHNSBURG – With James C. Bush Elementary School to turn 65 this year and its maintenance costs continuing to climb, the building’s role as an elementary school is near an end. The School District 12 Board discussed where it will house the third and fourth grades, which currently housed are at Bush Elementary, at its

meeting Tuesday evening. The conversation comes just over a month before District 12 voters will decide whether to approve the issuing of $41 million in new bonds – the exact number will be based on a cap that ties how much districts can borrow to equalized assessed property values – to finance building improvements and maintenance. Property owners would see the bond portion on their tax bills stay at 2014 levels instead of dropping as currently expected.

Back in October, the architecture and design firms hired by the district, RuckPate Architecture and Gillespie Design Group, provided the board will several options for updating the district’s four buildings and addressing maintenance concerns at Bush. They include moving all of the students to Johnsburg Junior High or moving the third-graders to the Ringwood Primary Center and the fourth-graders to the junior high school.

“There are no simple answers,” said John Maurer, RuckPate’s executive vice president. Moving the third-graders to Ringwood would cost the district about $700,000 less than housing both grades at the junior high. (The study, as well as various other documents and tools, are available at the District’s website, johnsburg12. org, under Community Engagement Opportunities.)

8ENVIRONMENTAL TIP

RECYCLING – TO RINSE OR NOT We all know to empty containers before recycling them. That keeps paper and cardboard nice and dry, which helps in the process. But rinsing might create more questions, so here are some basics: • Rinse conservatively: No need to go all Mr. Clean on that milk carton when a simple swish of water will do the trick. Rinsing to recycle actually reduces water use because a clean container is more likely to be recycled. It takes more water and energy to make a new container, so for that sticky peanut butter jar, scrap then soak then rinse, and do rinse or wipe out the yogurt container. • The multiplier effect: If more people recycle their beverage containers, we’ll redirect salvageable stuff from the landfill and save resources needed for new material production. Here is a cool case in point from the EPA: • Five 2-liter recycled PET bottles produce enough fiberfill to make a ski jacket. Recycling one soda can save enough energy to run a computer for three hours. The energy saved from recycling one glass bottle will operate a 100-watt light bulb for four hours.

Woodstock firefighters stand at attention during the funeral procession for Michael W. Wurtz, 47, a Woodstock firefighter. The visitation was held at the Woodstock Assembly of God church, and the procession traveled by each of the three Woodstock fire stations. Wurtz died of cancer Friday while surrounded by family and friends. Wurtz is survived by his wife, three daughters and two stepchildren. BELOW: Spectators watch on the Woodstock Square as Wurtz’s funeral procession passes by.

Hundreds gather at Woodstock church to remember Michael Wurtz WOODSTOCK – They walked past Engine 32 and into the church where Michael Wurtz, in his final months, reconnected to his faith. More than 360 uniformed firefighters from departments as far away as the Champaign area filtered into Woodstock Assembly of God, saluting the open casket of Wurtz one by one during a fire department walkthrough. The departments came together with Wurtz’ friends and family to lay to rest the 47-year-old firefighter, who died Friday of cancer. Those who spoke before and during the ceremony remembered a fearless firefighter who lived to serve – for his family, his friends and his community. They talked of his adven-

turous spirit, his exhaustive work ethic, the way everyone who met him seemed to feel a special connection. They remembered that smirk, which somehow toed the line between busi-

nesslike and lighthearted. They tried to put into words what Wurtz meant to the world. “We seem larger than life,” Woodstock Fire Chief Ralph Webster said

during the ceremony. “But quite honestly, that’s not what makes us so special. That’s not what made Mike special. It’s the little things he did to serve others.”

CRYSTAL LAKE – A former Miss Crystal Lake winner has earned a second chance to compete for Miss Illinois. Kogan Murphy was crowned Miss Gold Coast on Sunday, qualifying her to compete for Miss Illinois in June. The Miss Illinois winner will then go on to compete for Miss America. “It was really exciting,” Murphy said of the win. “Now I’m preparing myself for Miss Illinois.” This will be the 19-year-old Crystal Lake South graduate’s second shot at the state crown. She qualified last year when she won Miss Chain O’ Lakes. “Last year was a learning experi-

ence,” she said. “I was new to the organization. With every pageant you learn more. This year is different because I have a better idea of what I’m doing.” Murphy, who currently is participating in the world-renowned Joffrey Ballet training program in Chicago, began dancing when she was 2 years old. She got her start at the Judith Svalander School of Ballet in Crystal Kogan Murphy Lake, and she will rely on her dancing ability for the talent portion of the Miss Illinois competition.

By JEFF ENGELHARDT jengelhardt@shawmedia.com ISLAND LAKE – An Island Lake man had a blood-alcohol level four times the legal limit when a train struck his car last month, killing him and his 7-year-old daughter. Francisco Carranza, 36, had a 0.32 blood-alcohol content on the evening of Jan. 22 when he drove through an active crossing guard at the Metra tracks near the intersection of Route 134 and Porter Drive in Round Lake Park. The collision occurred at roughly 6 p.m. George Filenko, police chief for Round Lake, said police presumed alcohol was involved at the time

of the accident but did not know the extent until toxicology reports were made available Monday. After an investigation, Filenko said police believe Carranza began drinking at noon on Jan. 22 at a Round Lake Beach restaurant with a group of friends. Carranza then left between 2 and 2:15 p.m. to pick up his 7-yearold daughter, Alyssa, at the bus stop near his ex-wife’s house roughly 15 minutes away, Filenko said. Filenko said Carranza then returned to the restaurant with his daughter and resumed drinking until roughly 5 p.m.

CRYSTAL LAKE: HANNAH BEARDSLEY MIDDLE SCHOOL INCIDENT

McHENRY COUNTY: CERTIFICATION

Student charged with hate crime

Sheriff’s office will hold snowmobile safety course

By JEFF ENGELHARDT jengelhardt@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – A Hannah Beardsley Middle School student has been charged with a hate crime and aggravated assault after an alleged attack in a hallway left another student with two fractured clavicles. Omid Babakhani, an eighth-grader at the school, suffered the injuries shortly after his lunch hour Monday when he said the other student put him in a headlock and slammed him onto the ground before delivering some punches. Babakhani, whose father is from Iran, said the attack occurred when the other student yelled “Hey Persian” in his direction to get his attention. Babakhani said he ignored the comment, but the stu-

dent then called Babakhani’s mother a derogatory name. Babakhani said he then told the student to not talk about his mother. The student challenged Babakhani to a fight, who said he did not want to fight. When Babakhani turned to walk away, he said he was headlocked and slammed. Babakhani’s friend pulled the other student off. “Occasionally I’ve gotten some comments, but I dismiss them. Words don’t hurt,” Babakhani said of previous bullying. “This is the first time I have ever been physically attacked.” Crystal Lake police responded to the scene Monday where they arrested the aggressor and charged him with battery before releasing him to his parents. Police returned to the school Tuesday to inves-

tigate the situation with the district, the McHenry County State’s Attorney and juvenile Court Services. The investigation resulted in increasing the charges from battery to the Class 3 felonies of aggravated battery and hate crime, according to a Crystal Lake police news release. The offender was then taken to Kane County Juvenile Detention Facility. District 47 Superintendent Kathy Hinz said she could not give specifics because both students are minors, but “all available and necessary” disciplinary action has been taken. Manoucher Babakhani, Omid’s father, said he was disappointed in the school’s handling of the situation and concerned with the lack of supervision in the hallways. But he said he has no plans to

A m b e r D. Watson, 33, told her daughter that she wouldn’t see family members “or the outside world” again Amber D. if she didn’t Watson take back her allegations against Pablo Torres, Watson’s boyfriend, Assistant State’s Attorney Robert Za-

lud said. Torres, 55, is accused of having sexual contact with the 12-year-old girl. He was charged in August with multiple sex offenses, including those that carry a sentencing range between six and 30 years in prison. His case is still pending before McHenry County Judge Gordon Graham. Watson entered a blind guilty plea, meaning there was no agreement between attorneys on a possible sentence. It was accepted by Judge Sharon Prather. She will be sentenced March 11. Harassing a witness is a probational, Class 2 felony punishable by between three to seven years in prison.

CARPENTERSVILLE – District 300 does an “excellent job” of maintaining its bus fleet, often exceeding statewide safety regulations, an independent auditor determined in a newly released report. The 19-page audit refutes numerous safety and maintenance concerns that a former school bus driver and district parents voiced earlier in the fall. Auditors from the Chicago-based TransitPro Logistics still suggested several improvements to the district’s bus system, including stronger district oversight over its third-party bus provider Durham School Services. “There is a little bit of a heavy presence by Durham right now,” TransitPro President Todd Zoellick told board members Monday. “With some of the recommendations we’ve

put in place, I think that can be balanced, and I think you can continue a strong relationship with Durham personnel.” The Warrenville-based Durham company has managed the district’s bus system since 2007. The company dispatches about 230 buses from buildings in Algonquin, Carpentersville and Hampshire to transport 16,000 students to schools throughout District 300. The Carpentersville-based school district contracted TransitPro Logistics for $38,945 to perform the review that spanned more than two months and examined various areas, from student bus safety to maintenance processing. Regarding oversight, TransitPro found the district’s transportation director is the only person with authority to work with Durham and suggested the district hire a supervisor to help. The smaller bus compound

ommendations, putting them in priority order and updating the board on where we are with the recommendations. Michael Bregy District 300 superintendent at Hampshire also operates without an on-site manager, and the district should at least consider part-time help during the mornings and afternoons, TransitPro suggested, when drivers start and finish their routes. Durham also stores and handles all incident reports and other bus-related documents in a process that requires district administrators to request specific information, TransitPro found.

The paper storage process should be digitally converted to allow for easier access and information sharing between Durham and the district, TransitPro recommended. The outside company concluded the district’s bus system operates with “far more pros than cons,” properly maintains its fleet and does preventative maintenance that exceeds statewide standards, according to the report. District administrators have already changed certain procedures – like the digital storage – highlighted in the report, said Superintendent Michael Bregy. Going forward, officials will prioritize the recommended changes. “Like any audit, we will start looking at the recommendations, putting them in priority order and updating the board on where we are with the recommendations,” Bregy said.

Why Haven’t Neuropathy Sufferers Been Told These Facts? Do you have any of the following symptoms? • Pins and needles feeling • Numbness in the hands or feet • Tingling or burning sensations • Weakness in the arms or legs • Sharp shooting or burning pains

If so, you may have a condition called peripheral neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy, or “nerve damage,” is one of the most chronic conditions in the U.S., affecting over 20 million Americans. Neuropathy results from injury to the nerves in the arms and legs.This disrupts the body’s ability to communicate with its muscles, organs and tissues. Most people don’t recognize neuropathy’s symptoms, which are: • Pins and needles feeling • Numbness in the hands or feet • Tingling or burning sensations • Weakness in the arms or legs • Sharp shooting or burning pains These annoying problems may come and go...interrupt your sleep...or even make your arm or legs feel weak at times. But even if you’ve had neuropathy symptoms for a while, there are 3 common myths I often see with this condition.

Let’s face it, your neuropathy symptoms haven’t gone away by now, it’s not likely they will disappear on their own.And it’s been shown in studies that if ignored, symptoms can intensify causing loss of sensation, unremitting pain, and even disability.

What Other Professionals are saying about this program.

Myth #1: Thinking More Pills Are The Only Solution A common treatment for many nerve problems is the ‘take some pills and wait and see’ method. While this may be necessary for temporary relief of severe symptoms, using them long term is no way to live. Some of the more common drugs given include pain pills, anti-seizure mediations, and anti-depressants -- all of which have serious side effects. Why not look for a drugless solution instead of just covering over the pain?

”The ReBuilder has helped our patients who have painful side effects from chemotherapy neuropathy so much...” -Cancer Treatment Centers of America. ”Previously, treating peripheral neuropathy patients hasn’t been really successful...but I’ve never seen resolutions like we’re seeing in these cases.” John P.

$7 million project would provide permanent home for Oak Ridge School, administrative offices administrators at the Carpentersville-based school district could have a new office built by December. Administrators, meanwhile, still have to iron out the details on how they would pay for the entire plan and its $7 million total price tag. “We love aggressive,” Chuck Bumbales, assistant superintendent of operations, told members. “We completed (Gilberts Elementary) in nine months with your support. My confidence level is very high that we will be able to work through that.” Despite the aggressiveness, board members voiced strong support for the plan that moves roughly 80 students at Oak Ridge out of mobile trailers and into a permanent setting for the first time since the program started in 1998. Members are expected to vote on the plan during their Feb. 24 meeting. Administrators revealed it publicly for the first time Monday, although they have discussed the moves privately with the board and began designing their new 32,000-square-foot office near Jacobs High for months.

By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO sdibenedetto@shawmedia.com CARPENTERSVILLE – After setting the goal 17 years ago, District 300 administrators have found a permanent home for the alternative Oak Ridge School, and in doing so, a new home for themselves under a plan unveiled late Monday night. In a complex move, administrators would vacate their main office building in Carpentersville in March, send construction crews to make roughly $1.5 million in renovations and transform the space into a permanent school for Oak Ridge students by the start of the new school year this fall. Administrators would be temporarily housed at Hampshire High School for nine months, while they construct a new, two-story administrative building – estimated to cost $5.5 million – along district-owned property near Jacobs High School. During a near three-hour meeting Monday, board members called the plan aggressive and questioned whether

“I’m actually giddy that we are able to do this because with your dedication and support of the Oak Ridge program, you’ve continually looked at different options.” Shelley Nacke District 300 assistant superintendent of education services

The recent property swap, which also went final Monday, with the Children’s Home and Aid Society put the plan into motion. The $750,000 sale of the current Oak Ridge property to the society, plus a recently awarded $50,000 state grant, will help pay the estimated $1.5 million costs to renovate Oak Ridge’s new home at the district’s Central Office, 300 Cleveland Ave., Carpentersville, said Chief Financial Officer Susan Harkin. Officials believe the state will pay the district $60 million in capital grants, backlogged from construction projects

started in 2004. The district would use a portion of that money to cover the remaining $5 million to complete the renovation and build a new centralized administrative building, Harkin said. If the district ranks high enough, the state could award the overdue money a year from now, Harkin said. The state recently completed a similar process for groups who applied for capital development grants in 2003, she said. “If they follow the same timeline they just went through, we could expect to hear in a few months that we are up for it,” Harkin said. “Depending upon where we are prioritized, we are hoping that we will be in the first run.” If the state doesn’t come through, the district would have to borrow and take on more debt to complete both projects, Harkin said. The district also has roughly $1.2 million leftover from capital bonds issued last year that could help pay for both projects, she noted. In planning the moves, officials examined renovating

existing space and buying property for an administrative building, said Superintendent Michael Bregy. The central location near Jacobs puts the administration under one roof after student growth scattered various administrators throughout the district. “This option is the most economical for the space that we needed ... putting all of our services in one building,” Bregy said. Meanwhile, the renovated space for Oak Ridge students accomplishes a district goal set when the program opened. The permanent facility allows officials to expand the school’s enrollment and grant students access to a cafeteria and gym at nearby Carpentersville Middle School, said Shelley Nacke, assistant superintendent of education services. “I’m actually giddy that we are able to do this because with your dedication and support of the Oak Ridge program, you’ve continually looked at different options,” Nacke told the board. “This one looks at a reality to get Oak Ridge into a real building.”

KANE COUNTY: SOME EMPLOYEES TO GET RAISES

County Board OKs union agreement By ASHLEY SLOBODA asloboda@shawmedia.com GENEVA – Certain unionized county employees will receive raises for the next few years. The Kane County Board on Tuesday approved a resolution permitting Chairman Chris Lauzen to sign a memorandum of understanding with AFSCME Council 31 regarding the agreement reached for unionized employees in the health department, the clerk’s

office and the department of employment and education. The agreement for the employment and education employees includes a 2 percent wage increase retroactive to July 1, 2013; a 2 percent increase effective July 1, 2014; and 2.5 percent increases effective July 1, 2015, and July 1, 2016. Clerk and health department employees will receive the same increases, but their effective date is Dec. 1 for each year.

The agreement also calls for the global employee portion of the health insurance premiums to increase from 15 percent to 17 percent beginning April 1. Lauzen thanked all involved in the negotiations and described the outcome as “very reasonable.” Doug Scheflow, R-Elgin, was the sole board member to vote against the agreement. His vote was not a reflection of the employees or negotiations, he said, but to the long-term

pension impact. He also said that was his reason for voting against nonunion salary increases, which the board also approved Tuesday. The nonunion salary increases will be funded by the $1.2 million health insurance savings. Each department’s and office’s salary – and wage-related line items will be increased by about 2 percent. Department heads will be able to distribute the funds as they see fit.

KANE COUNTY: TWO OPENINGS

Murphy strongest in the talent competition “I was bullied a little bit growing up,” she said. “I decided to turn it into a positive and help others.” Murphy said she has traveled to schools and churches to spread her anti-bullying message, and she plans to meet with other Chicago-area schools later in the year. With a year of pageant experience under her belt and her extensive dance training, Murphy has high expectations for Miss Illinois. “I’m feeling pretty confident,” she said.

• ILLINOIS Continued from page B1 “The talent category is my strongest point,” Murphy said. “I’ve been dancing for 18 years.” Contestants also are judged on their evening gown, swimsuit and interview skills. Each contestant also is required to have a “platform” they are passionate about. Murphy’s platform is the fight against bullying, which she has experienced firsthand.

Lauzen filling community outreach posts Girl died of broken neck By ASHLEY SLOBODA asloboda@shawmedia.com GENEVA – Kane County Board Chairman Chris Lauzen is working to fill the vacant community outreach coordinator posts despite a board member’s call to better define the role first. Tuesday, the board approved a budgetary housekeeping item related to the positions, which include pub-

lic relations and social media aspects. Board member Mark Davoust, R-St. Charles, said the concept is “very good,” but it needs to be fleshed out before the money is spent. Additionally, parameters need to be established to measure progress, Davoust said, adding that getting 1,000 “likes” on Facebook isn’t enough. The original coordinators, Cheryl Maraffio and Nick

Scanlan, were hired last June on a contract basis and were involved in Kane County Connected, a social media effort that aims to build communities within the county. Scanlan’s contract wasn’t renewed, and Maraffio resigned last month, Lauzen has said. After Tuesday’s meeting, Lauzen said Jody Contorno and another candidate have been selected to fill those roles. Lauzen declined to name

the other candidate because the contract wasn’t finalized. He said Contorno will work with the Junior Kane County Board, which is expected to have its first workshop from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Feb. 27. Interested participants should call 630232-5931. Each coordinator will earn about $60,000 on a contractual basis, Lauzen said. The contract will run up to a year.

Assessments typically begin in the third grade • DISTRICT 12 Continued from page B1 That cost doesn’t take into consideration other factors, including equity among buildings, space, geography, enrollment projections, transportation and socioeco-

nomic populations, Maurer said. The big question is what will happen with enrollment, he said, will it return to pre-housing crash levels or will it continue to drop? Much of the cost savings would be lost if the district subsequently decided to ex-

pand its pre-kindergarten or switch to full-day kindergarten, Maurer said. The Ringwood Primary Center couldn’t accommodate both the third-graders and the expansion without an addition. Assessments also typically begin in third grade, so it may make sense to keep

the third grade with higher grades, he said, adding that studies also show benefits to grouping grades in threes. “Three, four, five, six, seven, eight, grouping them together, the more we talk about it the more it makes sense,” board President Thomas Low said.

Wurtz’s children presented with honorary badge • FIREFIGHTER Continued from page B1 Giving the service’s eulogy, Pastor Roger Willis harkened back to conversations he’d had with Wurtz over the last four and a half months, since the two met. He explained several words that Wurtz’s memory called to mind: adventure, selfless, honor. He said his next sermon would be called “Lessons from 1325 Dean Street,” the address

of the nearby Woodstock Fire/ Rescue District Station 2. Being around Wurtz firsthand showed him the honor the department felt Wurtz was due. “If we treat one another how you all treat one another, it’s going to go a long, long way,” Willis said. Willis added a fourth word: rest. He talked about the peaceful nature of a visit he’d had with Wurtz in January. The two discussed faith, and Wurtz opened up about a spiritual road made rocky by his

dad’s death at a young age. “I was hoping this visit would go in this direction,” Willis remembered Wurtz saying. Firefighters lifted the American flag from its resting spot on Wurtz’s casket, folded it and presented it to Wurtz’s wife. They gave his helmet and badge to the family. Each of his children was presented an honorary badge from the local firefighters union. “We’re having his service, but we’re serving her today,”

Webster said of Wurtz’s wife. “Her and her family.” To the blare of bagpipes and drums, servicemen carried the casket out of the church, past rows of firefighters frozen in salute. The body was raised onto Engine 32, where it would soon fall into a procession that traveled past each of the three Woodstock fire stations. First, the rows of firefighters were ordered out of their salute. Several finally wiped the tears from their eyes.

One day my friend was playing a soccer game. He was goalie. He didn’t like it because he wanted to move more. The game started, and my friend’s team scored. Then they scored again but in a few seconds the other team scored. After a while, the other team scored another 2 goals and they won the game. Sports are hard! Victor, 3rd grade In the summer, a friend and I were in the pool and we decided to have a swimming competition. We had to swim ive laps around a big pool in two and a half minutes. At the end I won, but we were so tired. Then we went for a soda and then we went home. Justin, 2nd grade One time when I was playing football, it was the end of the game and I was running with the ball, and I made a touchdown! Angel, 1st grade

One day, my mom put me in soccer. I was in 1st grade. It was my irst soccer game and I was really shy. My coach put me in the middle of the ield. Then they blew the whistle. Then everyone started running and I was next to the goal. Someone passed the ball to me. I didn’t know what to do. Two girls were running to me. I just ran with the ball and then I took a big breath. I kicked the ball to the goal and I made a GOAL! Everyone started cheering and clapping. My parents were really proud of me. Then all that year I made goals for my team and I was the star of my team. This year I’m going to make my team happy too! Jasmine, 4th grade

On summer break, my sister and I went to Swim School. One day we were racing.We had to dive in and swim freestyle to one end of the long pool and then back again. I was the only girl in my group, so I had to race against ive boys. I got scared! They were all taller than me.When my teacher blew the whistle, we all dove in. I tried my best. Every girl was cheering for me. When I got to the end, everyone was cheering and yelling. I didn’t know what was going on until I realized I had beaten all the boys. My teacher told me girls are awesome. She also told me I was queen of the backstroke. I love to swim! Yanell, 4th grade I played football with my friends at the park about a year ago and it was tackle. Most of us got bruises and one kid had a bloody nose. The game began about 2 p.m. and lasted until a little after 4 p.m. It was exciting but it was also quite painful. Max, 5th grade

DUCHESS KATE RETURNS TO HER PUBLIC DUTIES

THINGS

WORTH TALKIN’ ABOUT

Wednesday, February 12, 2014 • Section B • Page 8

LONDON – Duchess Kate returned to her public duties with a black tie fundraising dinner in aid of the National Portrait Gallery in London. Officially known as the Duchess of Cambridge, the former Kate Middleton gave a short speech before guests including movie star Elizabeth Hurley and rocker Bryan Adams. Kate wore a dark-colored, floor-length dress along with a diamond necklace loaned to her by her grandmotherin-law, Queen Elizabeth II. Kate has been taking it easy on the social calendar since the birth of her son, Prince George, last year.

BUZZWORTHY can return to the broadcast. “If it was just discomfort, I’d be there,” he said. No one else has anchored a prime-time summer or winter Olympic broadcast in the U.S. since 1998, when CBS had the rights to broadcast the games. Not only does he want to get better, but Costas joked in a statement from NBC that “the last thing I want is to go through the rest of my life owing Matt Lauer a bunch of favors.” Lauer said he was happy to keep Costas’ seat warm. “Although I might Purell it before I sit in it,” he said.

NBC’s Brokaw diagnosed with cancer LOS ANGELES – NBC News said veteran newsman Tom Brokaw has cancer. The network said Brokaw was diagnosed in August with multiple myeloma, a cancer affecting blood cells in the bone marrow. Doctors are optimistic about his treatment. In a statement released by NBC, Brokaw said he remains the luckiest guy he knows, and he looks forward to continuing his life and his work. He said he wants to keep his illness a private matter. Brokaw turned 72 on Feb. 6. The onetime national news anchor is a special NBC News correspondent, and NBC says he has continued to work on projects during his treatment.

Jackman will host Tony Awards again NEW YORK – Neil Patrick Harris has given way to Hugh Jackman at the Tony Awards. Producers of the annual telecast celebrating the best of Broadway said Tuesday that Jackman will once again take up hosting duties for the next awards on June 8 at Radio City Music Hall. It will be Jackman’s fourth time hosting the Tonys. He previously emceed the show from 20032005. Jackman, best known for being Hugh the hairy Wolverine in “The X-Men” Jackman franchise, was last on Broadway with a one-man show in 2011 that routinely sold out the 1,176-seat Broadhurst Theatre and usually posted weekly grosses of $1.5 million.

NBC’s Costas out with eye infection

Remembering the girl with curls: Shirley Temple dies at age of 85 Any kid who ever tap-danced at a talent show or put on a curly wig and auditioned for “Annie” can only dream of being as beloved – or as important – as Shirley Temple. Temple, who died Monday night at 85, sang, danced, sobbed and grinned her way into the hearts of Depression-era moviegoers and remains the ultimate child star decades later. Other preteens, from Macaulay Culkin to Miley Cyrus, have been as famous in their time. But none of them helped shape their time the way she did. Dimpled, precocious and adorable, she was America’s top box office star during Hollywood’s golden age and such an enduring symbol of innocence that kids still know the drink named for her: a sweet, nonalcoholic cocktail of ginger ale and grenadine, topped with a maraschino cherry. Her movies – which included “Bright Eyes” (1934), “Curly Top” (1935), “Dimples” (1936) and “Heidi” (1937) – featured sentimental themes and musical subplots, with stories of resilience that a struggling American public strongly identified with. In 1999, the American Film Institute ranking of the greatest screen legends put Temple at No. 18 among the 25 actresses.

With both eyes reddened by an infection, NBC’s Bob Costas said Tuesday he will sit out the network’s primetime Olympics coverage for at least one night. “Today” show anchor Matt Lauer will take his place in Sochi. Costas has been wearing glasses since the start of the Sochi Olympics because of an infection in his left eye. On Monday’s broadcast, it was apparent the infection had spread to his other eye. It quickly became the topic of conversation on social media and sports talk radio. Costas said he simply couldn’t do the job because his eyes had become blurry, watery and sensitive to light. “I’m walking around, I might as well be playing ‘Marco Polo,’” he said in a telephone call to the “Today” show Tuesday. “I have no idea where I am.” He said it’s a viral infection that has to run its course, and he hopes things improve enough in the next few days so he

BOYS BASKETBALL: DUNDEE-CROWN 57 CL SOUTH 50

HUNTLEY 61, CRYSTAL LAKE SOUTH 50

Perfectly done

Chargers do it all at South

Raiders cap undefeated run through FVC Valley

Seals scores 21 in FVC Valley win By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – DundeeCrown played composed and efficient offense that belied its record. The Chargers made shots from all over – four 3-pointers in the first quarter and free throws throughout the game – to take control against Crystal Lake South. And when things got a little dicey in the fourth quarter, guard Kiwaun Seals set up residence at the free-throw line and kept it to at least a two-possession game. Seals finished with 21 points, hitting 14 of 17 free throws, as D-C defeated South, 57-50, in their Fox Valley Conference Valley Division boys basketball game Tuesday night at Gator Alley. “We spaced the floor and made an extra pass when a man was open, and made some big plays, got a lot of open shots,” said Seals, a 6-foot-1 junior. “Coach is always telling me to get in there, jump-stop, and get [to the line]. I gathered myself and got there. After a couple, I was feeling it.” Seals scored 11 points in the fourth quarter and hit nine consecutive free throws to help the Chargers (6-14 overall, 2-7 FVC Valley) hang on. D-C forward Nick Munson hit two early 3s that helped put the Chargers up, 8-4, and they never trailed again. They hit 51.9 percent from the field (14 of 27), 75 percent from the line (24 of 32) and committed nine turnovers. “We focused on spacing the floor a lot and making simple plays and not trying to force anything,” Munson said. “We feed off each other a lot, so once someone gets hot other players get hot as well.” Chargers coach Lance Huber said it was one of his team’s decision-making games.

Huntley sophomore Ali Andrews shoots Tuesday under pressure from Crystal Lake South senior Sara Mickow during the third quarter in Huntley. Huntley won, 61-50, as Andrews reached 1,000 career points, and Mickow reached 1,000 career rebounds.

HUNTLEY – As the Fox Valley Conference season progressed, the Huntley girls basketball team adopted a new goal. Of course the Red Raiders wanted to win the FVC Valley Division title outright, which they did, but they also set Online their sights on finishing Watch undefeated in highlights of division play. the Huntley vs. Crystal Lake Crystal Lake S o u t h w a s South girls basthe only re- ketball game at maining ob- McHenry stacle in pre- CountySports. venting that com. from happening. Huntley expected a tough game against the Gators on Tuesday, and it got one. The Red Raiders had to battle back from an eightpoint first-half deficit. But led by sophomore forward Ali Andrews’ game-high 21 points, Huntley recovered for a 61-50 FVC Valley win. The Red Raiders (23-3 overall, 12-0 FVC Valley) outscored the Gators (15-12, 7-5) by 10 in a pivotal second quarter. “I was just really, really pleased with our kids and their focus,” Huntley coach Steve Raethz said. “It’s a tough thing to do to go all the way in a 12-game conference schedule and go undefeated. It’s a great accomplishment for our kids.” The Red Raiders finally began chipping away at what became a 17-9 South lead early in the second quarter. Huntley began finding Andrews in the paint, leading to nine second-quarter points. Her basket with 2:13 remaining in the second quarter tied the score at 23, although the Gators responded on their next possession to retake the lead on Rachel Rasmussen’s jumper.

Think Sochi’s bad? There have been worse Olympic sites SOCHI, Russia – I’ll bet you didn’t know whining was an Olympic sport. Don’t feel bad. I didn’t either until about two weeks ago, when my journalistic brethren began complaining in earnest. Upon arrival here, some found that their rooms, if available, lacked shower curtains, light bulbs, warm water, toilet paper or, gasp, televisions that worked. The horror! And so the narrative began: Sochi was a backward, ill-prepared city of buffoons, and how these godforsaken Russians got an Olympics was beyond the reach of human AP photo comprehension. That narrative has Erin Hamlin of the United States speeds down the track on her final run during the wom- not let up, even in the face of stunen’s singles luge Tuesday in Krasnaya Polyana, Russia.

VIEWS Rick Morrissey venues and, yes, remedied housing situations. An incredible amount of piling on continues, much of it on Twitter, and lots by journalists whose creature comforts have been disturbed. It’s a good thing these people aren’t foreign correspondents; otherwise we’d be getting reports on the tragic shortage of Starbucks in Syria rather than on the civil war there. Did you know that Sochi has lots of stray dogs? Yes, it does, and American journalists were aghast when they found out that Russian

officials were catching them and putting them to sleep. Can you imagine such heartlessness? Wait a second, perhaps you can. We euthanize thousands of dogs a day in the United States. Why Sochi’s solution surprised media members is something of a mystery. Perhaps they didn’t like the idea that these cold, image-conscious Russians were trying to pull one over on the world. You know, the way Atlanta tried to during the 1996 Summer Games, when officials shipped homeless people from downtown to an area about 10 miles away. Better that no one’s Olympic experience be sullied by the sight of beggars.

BOYS BASKETBALL: HAMPSHIRE 57, JOHNSBURG 46

Whips build big lead, hold off Skyhawks Johnsburg cuts 19-point deficit down to 3 before falling short By ANDY SCHMIDT sports@nwherald.com HAMPSHIRE – It looked like Tuesday night’s Fox Valley Conference Fox Division boys’ basketball game between Hampshire and Johnsburg wasn’t going to be decided in the final minutes. The host Whip-Purs built a 19-point lead late in the third quar-

ter and were cruising to an easy win. The Skyhawks stormed back but could never tie the score, as Hampshire held on for a 57-46 victory. After the two teams traded the lead several times in the first quarter and a half, the Whips (10-12 overall, 6-3 FVC Fox) went to a 14-2 run in the second quarter and took a 29-19 lead into the half. They extended their lead in the third quarter behind a

mammoth eight minutes from Matthew Bridges, who scored 12 of his game-high 21 points during the quarter as Hampshire took a 47-28 lead. Johnsburg (6-17, 4-6) began to chip away, scoring the last four points of the third quarter and then the first 12 points of the fourth to pull within 4744 with 2:45 to play. That was as close as the Skyhawks would get, as Hampshire finally got shots to fall again and score 10 of the final 12 points of the game. Hampshire coach Bob Barnett said he made a coaching mistake late in the third quarter that allowed Johnsburg to begin its comeback.

“I wanted to get some guys some rest at the end of the third quarter, and it was my mistake,” Barnett said. “I shouldn’t have put three subs in at one time.” Barnett, though, was quick to give the Skyhawks credit for not just playing out the string after his team took a huge lead. “That’s one thing about Johnsburg, they are never going to give up,” Barnett added. Bridges said the reason for his big quarter was because of some halftime adjustments. “My teammates did a good job getting me the ball, we struggled in the

zone during the first half and at halftime, coach drew up a plan and got the ball to me,” Bridges said. Trey Schramm added 13 points, and Drew Doran had 10 points for the Whips. Steve Dixon led Johnsburg with 11 points, all in the second half. Skyhawks coach Mike Toussaint said he was pleased with his team’s comeback. “We showed a lot of character,” Toussaint said. “We said that we need to chip away, chip away, and we did it on the defensive end when [Hampshire] settled for some long bombs. We didn’t give up.”

GIRLS BASKETBALL: RICHMOND-BURTON 48 HARVARD 40

Rockets respond in time

8INSIDE GIRLS BASKETBALL Athlete of the Week BROOKLYN HILTON Alden-Hebron, sr., guard/forward Hilton was tough to stop this week. The 5-foot-9 guard/forward scored a teamhigh 21 points with five rebounds and four steals in the Giants’ win against Berean Baptist. Hilton also scored 21 points in a win against Hiawatha.

By JEFF ARNOLD jarnold@shawmedia.com HARVARD – Courtney Ludois can tolerate a lot of things – except when her Richmond-Burton girls basketball team gets outworked. So when the Rockets’ effort was lacking early on in the midst of a night when shots just wouldn’t fall, Ludois let her players know about it. The result was a second-half turnaround when R-B was able to play through woeful shooting and got 17 points from Abby Straight in a 48-40 Big Northern Conference East Division victory over Harvard on Tuesday night. The finished product wasn’t polished by any means. But at least, Ludois said, her team learned that taking care of the little things can make all the difference. It just took the game’s opening 16 minutes for that message to sink in. “I think it was an eye-opener,” Straight said of the Rockets’ lackluster first half. “Everyone kind of had to refocus and get their head back in the game. “But it was important to get through and play defense and do things you can control.” The Rockets (15-9 overall, 8-4 BNC East) never trailed, but had to maintain their poise in playing through their shooting struggles. R-B led by only two points heading into the fourth quarter after Harvard was able to string together some offense behind Kaylee Bischke and Abby Linhart, who both scored 11 points for the Hornets. Despite Harvard’s third-quarter push, R-B did just enough in chasing down loose balls and collecting offensive rebounds that extended possessions. Two consecutive Straight baskets to start the fourth quarter extended the Rockets’ lead back to 40-34 and gave R-B enough breathing room to hold on for the win. Sara Swanson chipped in with eight points – including three late free throws – to help close out the R-B victory. “I thought we had great energy in the second half,” Ludois said. “We could not make a shot to save our lives. But Abby had a couple of big shots and we finished it when we needed to.” Harvard, on the other hand, couldn’t maintain the effort that it came out with to start the game. The Hornets (4-16, 1-8) had plenty of chances to draw even with plenty of time remaining. But Harvard never got closer than two points after playing the entire night from behind. A Linhart 3-point field goal with 39 seconds left brought the Hornets to within 44-40, but they couldn’t get the stops they needed to erase the deficit. “There were little spurts when we didn’t hustle on defense,” Harvard coach Ashley Arff said. “We let them go right by us. We have to play hard, nose-to-nose defense the whole game and that’s where it got away.”

Huntley, CL South players hit milestones • HUNTLEY Continued from page C1 Andrews scored 20 seconds later to tie the score, 25-25, and her basket gave her 1,000 career points. A strong performance to close gave Huntley a 30-27 halftime lead. Andrews became the fastest in program history to 1,000 points, breaking the record set by her sister, Sam Andrews, a senior who did it in just over two seasons. “People were talking about [the record], but I was just thinking about playing like always and looking to be a good teammate,” Ali Andrews said of her milestone. “It means a lot knowing all

the hard work I put into basketball has paid off.” South senior forward Sara Mickow hit a milestone of her own Tuesday. Mickow, who finished with 13 points and 13 rebounds, grabbed the 1,000th rebound of her three-year career on her final rebound of the game. Mickow’s 1,000 rebounds are by far a program record, with the second-most falling in the mid-600s. Despite Mickow’s double-double, the Gators couldn’t put together a second-half comeback, wasting a strong start to the game. South spread the ball around against Huntley, leading to four different players scoring its first 11 points to take a seven-point lead with

2:37 left in the first quarter. Huntley struggled to convert open looks to start the game. But Sam Andrews (14 points) kept the Red Raiders from facing a huge first-quarter deficit by scoring the team’s first five points. The Gators had chances to get back into the game during the second half, but a poor performance at the free throw line (10 for 19) thwarted that opportunity. “We came out and played real well right from the start and then we had a bit of a lull in the second quarter,” South coach Kyle McCaughn said. “From then you’re playing one of the best teams in the area, and you’re fighting uphill the whole way.”

GIRLS BASKETBALL: CLASS 1A ROCKFORD CHRISTIAN REGIONAL

S. Beloit pulls away from Alden-Hebron By PATRICK MASON pmason@shawmedia.com ROCKFORD – The Alden-Hebron girls basketball team didn’t know much about its Class 1A Rockford Christian Life Regional quarterfinal opponent South Beloit, but the Giants got some outside help. They learned the Sobos like to run a 2-3 zone when Giants guard Brooklyn Hilton relayed the information from her father after he went to a Sobos game last week to scout the team in his free time. “He tried his best,” Hilton said of her dad. “He told us they like to sit in a 2-3 zone, and we practiced all week on beating it, and we just tried our best.” Throughout the regular season, the Giants struggled against teams that ran a 2-3

defense but, this time, they had a headstart in preparing for it. The fourth-seeded Giants did a good job of dealing with what had plagued them all season during the first half, but a tough second half resulted in a 70-58 loss Tuesday night, ending the Giants’ season. Fifth-seeded South Beloit will move on to face top-seeded Dakota in Wednesday’s regional semifinal game. Although the Giants knew what was waiting for them once they took the floor against South Beloit, it was just a matter of putting all of that extra practice to work once the game began. It seemed to pay off early as HIlton scored 12 of her teamhigh 18 points in the first half, as A-H (11-10) was able to hit enough jumpers to hang with the Sobos’ top scorers.

Hilton and Jacqueline Walters aggressively attacked the zone with success, and A-H went into halftime down 32-28 but ran into trouble in the third quarter. “We just didn’t do the little things like boxing out or taking care of the ball,” Giants coach Jen Nichols-Hogle said. “We went a couple of hours in practice attacking the 2-3 and the girls felt they understood it. “We did all those things until halftime and that third quarter we came out different and it changed the game for us.” The Giants had no answer for South Beloit guards Shian Galbreath or Emily Kirichkow in the second half. Galbreath scored 13 of her 22 points in the third quarter on smooth drives to the basket and forced two Giants turn-

overs with her aggressive defense at the point, something the Giants had no answer for. “We tried our best,” Hilton said, “but we weren’t ready for the pressure up top.” Kirichkow finished with a game-high 36 points, including an 8 of 9 effort from the free-throw line in the final minutes of the game to put a Giants comeback out of reach. It seemed that whenever the Giants would make a dent in the deficit that was as high as 16 early in the fourth quarter, the Sobos would pad the score. South Beloit had only six players dressed for the game. “It’s no fun losing,” said Walters, who finished with 16 points. “Sometimes we tried a press, but they would just beat us down the court. We did what we could, but it was tough.

McHenry without Lay: McHenry will be without one of its top scorers for the rest of the regular season. Warriors senior Sawyer Lay sprained her left knee in Thursday’s loss to Crystal Lake South when she scored 25 points. McHenry coach Scott Morris said, though, she won’t be available the rest of this week. Missing three games, Lay will be back for the Warriors’ playoff opener Monday against Crystal Lake Central. Crossover games scheduled for Friday: The final regular season games are scheduled for Friday. Huntley is a lock to face either Grayslake North or Grayslake Central in the unofficial Fox Valley Conference title game Friday. Grayslake North leads the FVC Fox Division by one game over Grayslake Central. In this crossover format, matchups are determined by where teams finish in their respective division. Possible matchups include Crystal Lake South, in third in the FVC Valley, playing Crystal Lake Central, in third in the FVC Fox.

D-C hits 5 of 9 from behind arc; CL South hits 3 of 18 • CHARGERS Continued from page C1 “Sometimes we rush things, but we did a better job keeping our composure and not settling for a shot they wanted us to take, but getting the ones we wanted to take,” Huber said. “We were able to not let their pressure force us into quick shots and we were able to get some good ones.” The Gators (14-8, 3-6) fell behind

36-22 early in the third quarter after Seals hit a 3, but narrowed the gap to 41-36 by the end of the third quarter. Caleb Johnson started the fourth with a 3 for South and the teams traded baskets for a few minutes. Matt With D-C ahead, 44- LePage 42, Cordero Parson and Seals both scored in-

side, and South did not get closer than four points in the last five minutes. “They got it to the right guy, we overhelped at times and No. 15 [Munson] got loose,” Gators coach Matt LePage said. “He’s a good shooter and we were worried about him coming in. They made big shots, early to gain confidence, and when we needed them to get our confidence back, we just missed them. We were right there. You have to make [those shots] in your

own gym.” D-C was 5 of 9 on 3s, while South hit 3 of 18. Parson finished with 10 points and Munson had eight for the Chargers. Collin Wagner led the Gators with 14 points and Johnson added 11. “Our guys did a good job early defensively and we kind of held them off at the end when they made the rally,” Huber said. “We has just to always keep the lead.”

GIRLS BASKETBALL: PRAIRIE RIDGE 54, McHENRY 31

PR seniors enjoy their night By KEVIN MEYER kmeyer@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – The last time the Prairie Ridge girls basketball team played McHenry, the Wolves found themselves down 10 at the half before storming back for the win. There was no slow start Tuesday, as the Wolves took a 20-point halftime lead over the Warriors en route to a 54-31 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division win. Prairie Ridge led 8-6 with 1:31 left in the first quarter when the game started to get away from McHenry. The Wolves (18-8 overall, 10-2 FVC Valley) scored the next 14 points to take a 22-6 lead halfway through the second quarter. The Warriors scored only 11 points in the first half. “We played very hard and with a lot of energy and defended well,” Prairie Ridge coach

Rob Baker said. “Last time, we didn’t defend their people on the outside, and that made all the difference tonight.” The defensive effort the Wolves displayed in the first half was reminiscent of the last time the two teams played, when Prairie Ridge went on a 21-0 run to end the game. The Wolves’ two seniors were again instrumental on senior night. Sarah Le Beau, despite an off-shooting night from behind the arc (1-6), led the Wolves with 13 points. Maddie Drain battled inside for nine points, 10 rebounds and four blocks. “Last game, we thought it was going to be easier and came out with a bad mindset,” Drain said. “It helped it was senior night tonight, since we came out instead wanting to win for each other, and we did that with teamwork tonight.” The Wolves finished second in the FVC Valley and will be

the No. 1 seed at next week’s Class 4A Cary-Grove Regional, where they may meet the Warriors again in the semifinals. “Next week is going to be fun. No one really expected much out of us this year,” Baker said. “The intensity is going to be amped up, but I’m very comfortable with this group just going out there and playing.” The Warriors (9-17, 1-9) were playing without their leading scorer this season, Sawyer Lay, who was out because of a knee injury. They struggled offensively in the first half. “I thought we were a step behind tonight,” McHenry coach Scott Morris said. “Prairie Ridge came out ready to play, and we got in that big hole and couldn’t dig ourselves out.” McHenry was led by Alex Martens, who scored seven points. Mckayla Snedeker and Lindsay Skinner each added five for the Warriors.

GIRLS BASKETBALL: JACOBS 44, DUNDEE-CROWN 37

Fast start carries Eagles on road By CHRIS CASEY sports@nwherald.com CARPENTERSVILLE – The Jacobs’ girls basketball team made everything difficult for Dundee-Crown in a 44-37 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division win Tuesday night. Jacobs forced 19 turnovers and made every basket a tough one. “Defensive intensity was our strength tonight,” Golden Eagles coach Joe Benoit said. “This time of the year, that’s what it’s about. I think start to finish, our kids did that.” The Golden Eagles (6-20 overall, 3-9 FVC Valley) got contributions from a number of players on the offensive end. Carly Sidor led Jacobs with 14 points. Jennifer Barnec added nine points, and Jessica Powell had eight.

“We knew [D-C] would keep coming at us all game,” Benoit said. “With it being their senior night, our girls wanted to play for each other. It seemed like that happened with so many players contributing offensively.” Sidor, a freshman, loves to have the ball in her hands at the end of the game, proving that by scoring eight of her 14 points in the final quarter. “It’s what I live for,” Sidor said. “I wouldn’t have it any other way.” The Chargers (7-21, 2-9) trailed 26-14 at halftime, and coach Sarah Miller credited Jacobs for its strong start. “I wouldn’t say senior night emotions got the best of us at all,” Miller said. “Our girls knew we had a job to do tonight, and we came up short. Jacobs came out aggressive early, and we never

really did recover.” D-C, which trailed by as many as 13 in the second half, was never able to cut the deficit under six. Junior Lauren Lococo, who led the Chargers with 13 points, said she knew it would be hard to fight back after falling behind early. “We knew it wouldn’t be easy,” Lococo said. “Jacobs always plays us tough, and even when we tried to fight back, they wouldn’t let us. It was frustrating.” The Chargers outscored Jacobs 23-18 in the second half. Miller believes this game wasn’t indicative of the way her team has been playing. “We’re used to starting strong,” Miller said. “It was frustrating because our girls have been playing well, and tonight wasn’t a testament of what we’re used to seeing from them.”

Noah keeps Rose dream alive Center again rejuvenates dead idea of injured guard returning By JOE COWLEY

Noah’s triple-double helps Bulls cruise past Hawks

jcowley@suntimes.com CHICAGO – The door was closed. Slammed shut months ago by Tom Thibodeau when the Bulls coach declared that Derrick Rose would be lost for the season in the wake of a Nov. 22 injury to his right meniscus that required surgery. Then Tuesday, along came Joakim Noah, wedging that size-18 foot into that same door, keeping the dream alive for that small minority that still believes in unicorns, dragons and quick Rose recoveries. “That’s not my decision,’’ Noah said, when Next asked if he thought Rose could play postBrooklyn at season basketball for Bulls, 7 p.m. the Bulls in April. Thursday, TNT, “That’s nobody’s deciAM-1000 sion. It’s all about how he feels. Regardless of what happens, we’re going to be supportive.’’ Wasn’t Groundhog Day last week? It went by many different names all of last year: “The Return,’’ the Rose watch, the story that wouldn’t die. But in the end, the Bulls never did rule Rose out for the 2012-13 season in his recovery from a torn left ACL, so hope stayed alive until the very last minutes of the Game 5 loss to Miami in the second round of the playoffs. The consensus as far as there being a “Return II’’ was there wouldn’t be one. Then along came Noah, on the same day that Rose was going through shooting drills after the morning shootaround with the media watching, and the story once again had legs. Very little ones that were in a crawling position, but still legs. “He’s working really hard,’’ Noah said of Rose. “He’s always around the team, being a great leader, showing support to his teammates. Just watching him work every day I think is extra motivation for us to go out there and go harder. “He’s doing a lot more than shooting around. He’s in the gym nonstop, just working on his body getting better. That’s what it’s all about. He’s a big part of this team. He has that mentality of having no regrets. Just give it everything you got. If you can go, you can go. If you can’t, you did everything you could

CHICAGO – The end game for Joakim Noah is to be holding up the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy at the end of the season, but the big man admitted Tuesday that falling short of that doesn’t mean this current Bulls roster didn’t have a successful year. “That’s always the ultimate goal and there’s nothing more than I want than to win a championship,’’ Noah said. “Right now it’s about building the right habits, playing in those big games.’’ Putting up a triple-double might just qualify under that “right habits’’ category. Thanks to Joakim Noah’s fourth career triple-double and first of this season, the Bulls (26-25) jumped Atlanta for the No. 4 spot in the Eastern Conference playoff seedings, beating the Hawks, 100-85, at the United Center. Noah was a big reason why, scoring 19 points, grabbing 16 rebounds and handing out 11 assists. Taj Gibson once again got the start for the injured Carlos Boozer (left calf), scoring a game-high 24 points, as well as grabbing 12 rebounds. Coincidentally, the Bulls are 5-1 in games Boozer misses and Gibson starts. – Joe Cowley to make it.’’ Thibodeau did say that Rose was running on the treadmill, but when asked if that was a new development in his rehab he quickly said no. “He’s been doing that for a while,’’ Thibodeau said. “He’s doing fine. Still nowhere close to practicing or anything like that, but he’s doing well, overall.’’ And that really is the main hurdle for Rose right now. Forget games, it’s about when or if he will start practicing again so he can take some momentum into the offseason. A source told the Sun-Times last month that Rose was ahead of schedule in his rehab, making it so the idea of playing for USA Basketball later in the summer was a reality. There has not been one person with the Bulls or in the Rose camp, however, that has given any indication that a return this season was realistic. “Most likely not, but we’ll see,’’ Thibodeau said, when asked if he could see Rose practicing with the team before the season ends. “He’s out for the year, but he’s doing great.’’

GIRLS BASKETBALL: CL CENTRAL 35, JOHNSBURG 32

Tigers find way past Skyhawks By TIM SIECK sports@nwherald.com CRYSTAL LAKE – The rallying cry of the 1983 Chicago White Sox was winning ugly. Crystal Lake Central’s girls basketball team may adopt that motto based on its play the past several games. Tuesday, the Tigers had another ugly victory, as they defeated Johnsburg, 35-32, in Fox Valley Conference Fox Division play. Tuesday was senior night at the Crystal Lake Central Field House, and it was only fitting that two seniors dominated for the Tigers. With Central (14-12 overall, 8-4 FVC Fox) ahead by two points late in the fourth quarter, senior Kelsey Schmitt converted all four free throws she attempted in the final minute to extend the lead to five. This proved to be too much for the Skyhawks (10-17, 4-8) to overcome. Schmitt finished with 11 points. “We definitely wanted to get off to a quick start, which we didn’t really do tonight,” Schmitt said. “Our defense is what got us the victory. I’m very happy to get a win on senior night.” Central controlled things early in the game, and a lot of that was thanks to another senior, forward Shannon Ellman. Ellman led all scorers with 14 points, including four 3-pointers, and pulled down 13 rebounds. “I was happy to help the

team by hitting some shots in the first half,” Ellman said. “This was a good win for our team, and I’m happy that we got it done on senior night.” Both Central and Johnsburg had issues shooting and holding on to the basketball. Central turned the ball over 16 times and shot 35 percent from the field. Johnsburg committed 17 turnovers and shot 28 percent from the field. Central coach Paul Lichtenheld was happy to get another victory, no matter what it looked like. “I’ve always been told there are two things that are never ugly, babies and wins,” said Lichtenheld. ”This wasn’t a pretty victory, but we will still take it. That has been our trend a lot this season. Offensively, we tend to struggle a lot, which makes defense really important. I’m happy with how we played defensively.” Johnsburg made things close the entire night. The Skyhawks put together a nice effort in the third quarter, when they cut the Tigers lead to one point. Each time Johnsburg looked like it would take the lead, Central was there to stop the rally. “Central is very well coached, and we knew this would be a tough game,” Johnsburg coach Brad Frey said. “We didn’t play well in first half but still had a chance. I’m proud of the effort we gave tonight.” Johnsburg was led by Kayla Toussaint with eight points.

Browns CEO, GM leaving in stunning shakeup BEREA, Ohio – The Browns fired their coach after one season. Now they’re sweeping out their front office. Owner Jimmy Haslam announced Tuesday that CEO Joe Banner will step down in the next two months and general manager Michael Lombardi is leaving the team. “Mike and Joe have left us in good position in terms of free agency and cap space as well as this year’s draft, where we have 10 overall picks and three of the first 35,” Haslam said at a news conference. It’s yet another stunning development for a franchise that has undergone nearly constant change in the past 15 years. Haslam also said assistant GM Ray Farmer, who was pursued by Miami to be the Dolphins’ GM this winter, has been promoted and immediately will take the over the team’s football operations and lead the Browns during free agency and draft. Cleveland has two first-round picks in May’s draft and is well under the salary cap to spend on free agents. Haslam added that president Alec Scheiner will keep his current role.

Oswalt retires after 13 seasons in big leagues Right-hander Roy Oswalt retired from baseball Tuesday after 13 major league seasons that had him criss-crossing the country with time in the American and National Leagues. Oswalt’s agent, Bob Garber, confirmed Oswalt’s retirement and said the pitcher would come to work for his agency. Oswalt, 36, had a 163-102 career record with a 3.36 ERA. His best season came with Houston in 2004, when he went 20-10 with a 3.49 ERA. The durable starter – a three-time All-Star and 2006 NL championship series MVP – pitched more than 200 innings seven times in his career but dealt with injuries in recent years.

NFL

Fiedorowicz rated No. 1 tight end at Senior Bowl By JEFF ARNOLD jarnold@shawmedia.com C.J. Fiedorowicz came away from last month’s Senior Bowl feeling pretty good about his performance. Apparently, he wasn’t the only one. Phil Savage, a former NFL assistant coach, scout and general manager who now serves as the Senior Bowl’s executive director, ranked the former Johnsburg and Iowa standout as the top tight end prospect from the weeklong event in Mobile, Ala. Savage released his rankings Tuesday. The former Cleveland Browns general manager also predicted that Fiedorowicz would make a

contribution to whatever NFL team drafts him and believes the 6-foot-5, 265-pound tight end will be a NFL starter within three years. “He has excellent size with a proportioned body and is physical enough to con- C.J. tinue develop- Fiedorowicz ing as a blocker,” Savage wrote. “He demonstrated more suddenness in and out of his cuts that will allow him to get separation when facing man coverage. “His hands are dependable, and he provides a large catching radius for the QB. Expect

to see C.J. get on the field as a rookie in two- and three-TE personnel groupings. He has the physical development and mental maturity to contribute in his first year.” Savage ranked Fiedorowicz ahead of Georgia’s Arthur Lynch and Colorado State’s Crockett Gillmore among the six tight ends he ranked for the week. Fiedorowicz will be one of 22 tight ends who will participate at the NFL Combine starting next week in Indianapolis. He was also named the Senior Bowl’s top receiver based on the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday practices. Fiedorowicz did not have a catch in the Senior Bowl game, telling the Northwest Herald, “When it

mattered most, I feel like I did my best.” Fiedorowicz said he would grade himself out with a “B or B+” – only because he feels like there is always something he can work on. He said although he was satisfied overall with his blocking and pass catching, there were little things that he feels like he can clean up before he heads to Indianapolis. “The first practice, I was a little nervous – it was a big crowd and I knew it was all scouts and I had the butterflies in my stomach,” Fiedorowicz said in the recent phone interview. “Once the practices starting going, that all left and I just went out and played football and did my thing. It was just natural.”

There has been a lot of indignation from American journalists about Russia’s harsh anti-gay laws, as there should be. But that indignation sure has a bad case of amnesia. Our record on tolerance of gays hasn’t been exactly stellar. One ugly, government-led attempt to isolate gays here doesn’t mean an entire country thinks that way. Nor does it follow that Russia is a hopeless backwater. But most of the media’s anger has been reserved for the unfortunate reality that Marriott doesn’t run the world. There’s a kind of carping oneupmanship going on here: Your shower water is lukewarm? Mine is the color of whiskey! Are reporters really complaining about their rooms when spectators are wondering whether a suicide bomb might go off? Yes, they are. Nice form. There is, predictably, a Twitter account (@SochiProblems) that has been compiling all that is wrong with these Olympics. It has 345,000 followers. An American bobsledder gets locked in his bathroom here, and a group cackle ensues. Somebody notices that many under-construction buildings around the city look like an ode to rubble, and people roll their eyes at the ham-handed Russkis. Why people who are not here would care about such things, I don’t know. But I get the feeling that if @SochiProblems tweeted “fire!’’ these same people would run out of their houses. This is my eighth Olympics and, trust me, this one isn’t the worst. That

would be Atlanta, where bus drivers didn’t know their routes and are quite possibly are in South Dakota now. The bus system here is a well-oiled machine. Trains to and from Olympic Park are free. Most of the Russians don’t speak English well, if at all, but they try. If they can’t understand you, they try to find someone who can. They want this to go well. The Cold War is over, folks, and although Russian president Vladimir Putin puts you in the mood for 1970s, cloak-and-dagger intrigue, he may be more egomaniac than enemy. He somehow spent $51 billion on this extravaganza, taking Olympic corruption to heights never seen before. Not everybody lives like we Americans do. You might argue that if a country gets an Olympics, it has a duty to have everything running perfectly when the competition begins. Well, get used to this. The International Olympic Committee continues to award the Games to places that might raise eyebrows – Rio de Janeiro in 2016, for example. The Soviet era ended in 1991. That’s not so long ago. Russia’s infrastructure isn’t what ours is. Many things still look Communist here, and some pampered media members are having a problem with that. Whatever you do, please don’t tell them or @SochiProblems about the Roman Colosseum (#whatadump). • Rick Morrissey is a Chicago SunTimes sports columnist who can be reached at rmorrissey@suntimes.com.

SOCHI SCENE

mlazerus@suntimes.com

A Shaun White hug KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia – Hours before he went for the win, Shaun White already had delivered a gold-medal moment. Shortly after qualifying for the Olympic halfpipe final Tuesday, White vaulted the barriers separating him from the fans and gave two young cancer patients high-fives and hugs. “I thought, ‘He’s here? What?’ ” said Ben Hughes, a 10-year-old from St. Louis who was diagnosed with leukemia four years ago. Also sharing the love was 19-year-old Kaitlyn Lyle, who, like Hughes, was in Russia courtesy of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Lyle said she had “liked” White on his Facebook page. She was diagnosed a bit before the Vancouver Olympics and her wish was to come to Russia, where she was torn between asking for tickets for figure skating or snowboarding. “But when I saw Shaun win gold [in Vancouver], I chose snowboarding,” she said. Good choice. – By Eddie Pells – Twitter

https://twitter.com/epells Dog lover’s quest KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia – Amanda Bird is trying to take Sochi home with her. Literally. The spokeswoman for the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation, an avid pet lover, was moved by the story of stray dogs being rounded up in the Sochi area before the Olympics began last week. When she heard some of the dogs were being housed temporarily with hopes that they would find new homes, Bird – a former bobsled and skeleton athlete – started asking around to see if she could rescue one herself. So she sent her husband Jason an email asking if she could bring home, as she called it, a souvenir. He was immediately on board with the plan, and now Bird is desperately trying to figure out the process. “I just want to bring one of these dogs home,” Bird said. “You can tell that these dogs were pets.” She’s made some progress. A woman who works with one shelter has been in touch with Bird to work out the formalities. There’s still some red tape, and time is running out since Bird leaves Russia on Feb. 25. Bird and her husband – already owners of a pup named Sammy – have a name picked out for the new dog: She would be called “Sochi.” – By Tim Reynolds – Twitter

SOCHI PROBLEMS

SOCHI, Russia – Zach Parise was on his couch last month – stuck at home with a foot injury while his Minnesota Wild teammates were on the road – idly flipping through the channels when he stumbled on a familiar sight. And a familiar sound. And then an unfamiliar sensation. The 2010 gold-medal game from the Vancouver Olympics was on. It was already the second period. And Parise, who never had watched the game again, couldn’t look away. “I watched it to the finish,” he said of a game that the United States sent to overtime on a goal by Ryan Kesler with 24.4 seconds left but that Canada won, 3-2, on a goal by Sidney Crosby. “I knew the outcome, but you get some weird emotions going through your body when you’re watching it. But it was fun to watch. You could sense the energy in the building. It was awesome.” Team USA’s surprising silver medal in 2010 was a source of incredible pride and incredible disappointment. It was a stirring run, carried by Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller’s spectacular play behind a gritty young group of players molded into something resembling an actual team, not just an all-star team. It raised the bar for U.S. hockey and relaunched Team USA into the upper echelon of the hockey world after it failed to medal in six of the previous seven Olympics since the “Miracle on Ice” in 1980. On the other hand, it was a devastating gut punch – to come so close to beating mighty Canada on its home soil in the biggest game the country had seen. “It was tough,” said Blackhawks star Patrick Kane, who hadn’t seen the game, either, until he watched it on his computer recently. “Usually by the time you get the bitter taste of losing out of your mouth, you’re coming back to start another season. That one took a little while to get over.” Asked how long the loss stuck with him, Miller said, “I don’t know that I’m over it.” Now Team USA is back on the world

The Blackhawks’ Patrick Kane is a key member of Team USA in the Sochi Games. The Americans open play Thursday against Slovakia. stage in Sochi. And with 13 players from that silver-medal team still on the roster, it won’t be sneaking up on anyone. Now the team is expected to contend for gold. But now the players know just how difficult that is. “It’s once every four years, so you don’t get a chance often,” Parise said. “And you never know if you’re going to get in that gold-medal game again. “There’s a reason why, in the last three gold-medal games, it’s been six different teams. It’s not easy. If it was, the same team would be winning over and over again. You have to have good special teams. You have to get great goaltending. “Yeah, ideally, we came here with gold on our mind, and the expectations internally rose a lot. But saying that, there are seven or eight teams that can win it. You just don’t know.’’

Team USA certainly will be in the mix, but the usual powers – Canada, Sweden, Russia – remain in its path. Finland is as solid as ever. Slovakia is a dark horse. The Czech Republic a tough out. And Switzerland goalie Jonas Hiller is certainly capable of ruining the next four years for some country. It’s the Olympics, the biggest and best tournament in the world. And while Team USA is a bona fide contender now, the road to its first gold medal in 34 years will be as difficult as ever. That’s why 2010 still stings. So close, yet so far. “It’s frustrating to think we were that close and missed out,” Miller said.”And that’s how we really feel: We missed out. Hopefully, it’s just a lesson learned since we’re four years out. And it can be something inspirational.”

SPEEDSKATING

Do those thigh patches come in black? By LANCE RICHARDSON Slate The Olympics are never just about the athletes’ physical prowess. They’re also an opportunity for tech geeks to try their hand at improving nature. The latest example comes in the form of Team USA’s Under Armour Mach 39 Speedskating Suit, an innovation every bit as flamboyant as the title. Developed over several years by sporting goods company Under Armour and Lockheed Martin – better known for fighter jets than fancy skatewear – the Mach 39 has already elicited a roundup of breathless reportage. It took more than 100 textiles and 300 hours of wind-tunnel testing to find the perfect combination for speed and convenience. The final design, using five textiles, creates an overall look that can perhaps best be described as “half-dressed Batman on ice.”

Heather Richardson of the U.S. competes in the second heat of the women’s 500-meter speedskating race Tuesday in Sochi, Russia. The gray patches on the inner thighs of the U.S. speed skaters’ outfits are designed to reduce friction. Everything has a purpose, including those glaring gray patches on the inner thighs. These are pieces of “ArmourGlide,” a super-slick material that

apparently reduces friction by up to 65 percent. This makes sense as an innovation: You will surely skate faster if your thighs aren’t sticking together, and nobody wants the sort of chafing that comes with criss-crossing your legs at high speed. But the odd conspicuousness is enough to make one ask, “Does it come in black?” The design can be attributed to Steve Chasezeyka, who told Sports Illustrated he looked to American hot rod culture to create an aesthetic that would “embody raw speed and power.” This is why the skaters have that flamelike stripes on their chests. Other touches – a diagonal zipper, dimpled polyurethane strips, open mesh panels – have a more utilitarian purpose. Even so, as Under Armour’s Kevin Haley explained to The Washington Post, “This is not something that somebody is going to wear down the street or to a cocktail party.”

Italian Jam Tart

The Associated Press

Start to finish: 1 hour Servings: 6

bout a decade ago I traveled to Italy to take a cooking class. Of the many things I brought home from that trip, none is more cherished than my recipe for Italian jam tart. I learned it from Judy Witts Francini, an American who teaches cooking classes that capture the simple home cooking of Tuscany. The first tart we made – technically a crostata – was filled with fig jam, but these simple pastries made from butter, sugar and flour really can be filled with whatever your Valentine likes. This is one of those treasured recipes where the sum is greater than the parts. The list of ingredients is short and basic. For that first tart I made, the secret was a beautiful jar of homemade fig jam scented with lemon zest and almonds. I was incredulous that something so easy to make could taste so good. The crust is so wonderful, a cross between pie dough and a sugar cookie. As I learned in Italy, the real secret to the tart is using the best quality jam you can find. I look for jam made with only a bit of sugar, and I prefer fig, apricot, cherry, strawberry and raspberry. The thing I love about switching up the jams is that you can add extracts and seasonings to match your jams. When I make a fig jam tart, I add a touch of cardamom to the crust; when I make cherry, I use almond extract instead of orange blossom. You can even make the crust chocolate with the addition of 1/2 cup of cocoa powder. The list of variations goes on and on. For Valentine’s Day, try making a strawberry jam tart and drizzling it with a little melted chocolate when it comes out of the oven. It’s a twist on chocolatecovered strawberries.

13 tablespoons (1 stick plus 5 tablespoons) unsalted butter, softened 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar 1/4 teaspoon orange blossom water or vanilla extract 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1/8 teaspoon sea salt Generous 1/2 cup (about 6.5 ounces) fig, apricot, cherry or berry jam Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Position an oven rack in the center of oven. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer with the whisk attachment to beat the butter and sugar on medium speed until the mixture is very light in color, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the orange water or extract and blend well. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix by hand just until the dough is thoroughly combined, about 30 seconds. Mea-

sure out a 1/2 cup of the dough and smooth it out on a small plate, then place the plate in the freezer. Meanwhile, press the remaining dough evenly into and up the sides of a 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom. If the dough is too soft to work with, chill it briefly. Refrigerate for 15 minutes. Once the tart has chilled, spread the jam evenly in it, starting from the center and leaving a border of about 1/2 inch around the edges. The jam should be thinly spread and not resemble a filled pie. Remove the reserved dough from the freezer and crumble it into small pieces over the jam. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the topping is a beautiful golden brown. Remove from the oven and place on a rack to cool completely. Remove the tart from the sides of the pan and cut into wedges.

Start sweet

Valentine’s meal adds honey even before dessert

By ALISON LADMAN The Associated Press

By ALISON LADMAN

Why wait for dessert to give your Valentine’s Day dinner a sweet touch? We’ve created a delicious savory dinner that has a sweet side thanks to a touch of honey. Start with homemade pasta tossed with a lemon-honey sauce and chopped fresh herbs. Don’t be intimidated by making pasta from scratch. If you enjoy cooking together, dump the ingredients on the counter and knead them together into a dough. Or for ease, do it in the food processor. Either way, the fun is in rolling it out and cutting it. No special equipment needed. While you’re working on the pasta, roast the second course – honey-pepper olives and green beans with shrimp. And for dessert? Keep it simple. Fresh strawberries drizzled with honey.

The Associated Press A box of chocolates? A slice of chocolate cake? So very been-theredone-that. This Valentine’s Day, up the ante with your expression of love via chocolate. Rather than simply end the meal with a sweet hit of cocoa, why not use it as the inspiration for the entire menu? Start with slices of soft goat cheese sprinkled with a blend of unsweetened cocoa powder and chili powder, then topped with a Peppadew pepper. Then move on to our flank steak rubbed with ground cocoa nibs, coffee and pumpkin seeds. Accompany that with a warm, soft polenta spiked with chopped dates and cocoa butter. Then finish the meal with a simple chocolate tart, chocolate martinis, or a plate of dates and figs to dunk in a pot of hot fudge sauce.

Handmade Pasta With Lemon, Herbs and Honey

Cocoa-Coffee Flank Steak Start to finish: 2 hours 20 minutes (20 minutes active) Servings: 2

Start to finish: 45 minutes Servings: 4 For the pasta: 2 cups all-purpose flour 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 eggs 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 tablespoons water

1 tablespoon cocoa nibs 1 teaspoon ground coffee 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder 1 tablespoon toasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds) 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 1/2 teaspoon salt 12 ounces flank steak

For the sauce: Zest and juice of 2 lemons 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 2 tablespoons honey 1/2 cup mixed torn fresh herbs (such as parsley, chervil, basil, tarragon and chives) Salt and ground black pepper Parmesan cheese, to serve In a food processor, combine the flour, salt, eggs, olive oil and water. Process until the dough forms a ball. Continue processing for another minute to knead the dough. Transfer the ball of dough to the counter. Cover with an overturned bowl or plastic wrap and let rest for 30 minutes. Once the dough has rested, cut it in half. Using a rolling pin, one at a time roll each half out on a lightly floured surface. Roll the dough into an oblong as thin as possible. Using a pizza wheel or paring knife, cut the dough into long strips or irregular squares. Sprinkle the cut pasta with a bit of flour or cornmeal to prevent it from sticking. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Drop the pasta into the water and cook until al dente, about 3 to 5 minutes. When the pasta has cooked, drain it, then return it to the pot. Add the lemon zest and juice, butter and honey. Toss until the butter is melted. Add the herbs, then toss again. Season with salt and pepper. Serve topped with grated Parmesan.

Chocolate infuses the whole meal

Using a spice grinder or mortar and pestle, grind the cocoa nibs, coffee, chili powder and pepitas until a fine powder. Transfer to a small bowl and stir in the oil and salt. Rub the spice mixture over all the steak, then set it on a plate, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours or up to overnight. When ready to cook, heat a skillet to medium-high. When the pan is hot, coat it with cooking spray and add the steak. Sear for 3 minutes per side, or until cooked to desired doneness. Allow to rest for 5 to 10 minutes, then thinly slice.

For true love, layer passion fruit, chocolate By ALISON LADMAN The Associated Press Passion fruit, chocolate and Champagne. Could there be three ingredients better suited for a holiday built around love? There are several components to this dessert, but none of them is difficult and they combine to form a most impressive and decadent dessert. Passion fruit puree generally is found in the freezer section of your grocer, often alongside the Hispanic ingredients.

Start to finish: 1 hour Servings: 4

For the chocolate cake: 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate 1/4 cup coffee 2 eggs 1/2 cup cocoa powder 1/3 cup packed brown sugar Pinch of salt

For the Champagne cream: 1/2 cup granulated sugar 3 egg yolks 3/4 cup Champagne (or other sparkling wine) 1/2 cup heavy cream Fresh berries, to garnish

For the passion fruit curd: 1/2 cup granulated sugar 2 teaspoons cornstarch 2 eggs 1/2 cup passion fruit puree 2 tablespoons unsalted butter Pinch of salt

First, make the chocolate cake. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch cake pan with cooking spray, then line the bottom with kitchen parchment. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Remove the pan from the heat and add the chocolate, stirring until

melted. Stir in the coffee until smooth and glossy. In a medium bowl, beat together the eggs, cocoa, brown sugar and salt. Add the chocolate mixture and beat until smooth. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes, or until slightly puffed and no longer loose at the center. Set aside to cool. Meanwhile, make the passion fruit curd. In a small saucepan, whisk together the sugar and cornstarch. Add the eggs and beat until smooth. Add the passion fruit puree and beat again until smooth. Set the pan over medium heat and cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture comes to a

boil. Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the butter and salt. Set aside and allow to cool completely. To make the Champagne cream, set up a double boiler with 1 inch of water in the bottom pan. If you don’t have a double boiler, fill a medium saucepan with 1 inch of water, then set a large bowl over it. In the top of the boiler or in the bowl, whisk together the sugar and egg yolks until smooth. Add the Champagne and whisk until smooth. Turn the heat to medium and continue to whisk until the mixture is light in color and has thickened to a soft, foamy cream, about 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly. In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the heavy cream to stiff peaks. Fold the cream into the Champagne cream. To assemble the trifle, cut the cooled chocolate cake into small cubes. In parfait glasses, layer cubes of chocolate cake, passion fruit curd and Champagne cream, repeating the layers until the glasses are filled. Garnish with fresh berries. Enjoy immediately or cover and chill for up to 8 hours.

Bundles of love (and caviar) Little packages packed with luxuriously decadent – but healthy – filling for Valentine’s Day Just in time for Valentine’s Day, here’s a luxurious little treat to make and serve at home that may bring to mind your most elite restaurant thrills. It’s based on the beggar’s purse, a signature appetizer at the Quilted Giraffe, a groundbreaking ’80s-era New York City restaurant. The beggar’s purse was a voluptuous serving of Beluga caviar and sour cream spooned onto the center of a crepe, the ends of which were then gathered up and tied with a bow of chive. The resulting little bag with the pleats at the top looked like a purse, but there was nothing beggarly about its contents. It was rich in all ways. Caviar has been considered a decadent treat for ages. About 200 years ago, the United States produced so much of it, saloons used to give it away for free with a glass of beer. That changed, of course. And as true sturgeon caviar (considered the very best) has become rarer, the price has become steeper. In recent decades, American-made caviar has made a comeback. And the quality is excellent. You can find several American sturgeon caviars as well as many fish roes, such as salmon, trout, whitefish, paddlefish and bowfin. Less expensive than sturgeon caviar, they’re all quite tasty, which makes them good alternatives for the budget-minded. This recipe is a Russian-leaning variation on the Quilted Giraffe original. I’ve replaced the crepes with blini, the buckwheat pancakes on which the Russians serve caviar. I’ve also swapped in

EVERYDAY DINNERS Sara Moulton low-fat sour cream for the full-fat variety and added smoked salmon to bulk up the protein. It’s still plenty rich. I added a little all-purpose flour to the blini; the buckwheat contributes hearty flavor to the dish, but it needs the gluten of all-purpose to hold together. The resulting pancake is a little thicker and larger than a crepe, which means the purse is a little larger than those served at the Quilted Giraffe. Accordingly, it takes two scrumptious bites, not one, to polish off one of these delightful little packages. It’s not what I’d call a problem.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, egg and 2 1/2 teaspoons of the oil. Add the buckwheat and all-purpose flours, a pinch of salt, several grinds of pepper and the sugar. Beat just until combined. Cover and let rest at room temperature for 1 hour. In a small saucepan, bring several inches of water to a boil. Add the chives and cook for 10 seconds, or until just wilted. Transfer them to a bowl of ice water to cool, then pat dry with paper towels. Set aside. Brush a medium nonstick skillet

Mole brings out chocolate’s savory side The Associated Press

Like it or not, it’s best to simply embrace the idea that chocolate must play a key role in any Valentine’s Day dinner. But a chocolate tart or truffles or bonbons or even chocolate-dipped strawberries are so ... cliche. Maybe think a little outside the chocolate box this year. Maybe slip the chocolate in as a savory component to a steak dinner so rich and so delicious, you’ll be tempted to abandon silverware as you eat it. And you can. Though mole dishes such as this beef version often are served over rice, I’ve instead paired it with a warmed, butter-drenched baguette. Torn hunks of crusty bread are perfect for sopping up the delicious sauce the beef tips are cooked in.

sides of both halves of the baguettes. Set the baguettes, cut side up, in the oven to warm. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan over medium-high, heat the oil. Add the beef and sear for 2 to 3 minutes per side. Set aside off the heat. In a blender combine the almond butter, tomatoes, garlic, shallot, cocoa powder, cinnamon, black pepper, pepper flakes, cloves and water. Puree until smooth, then add to the beef. Bring the beef and sauce to a simmer over medium heat. Cook, uncovered and stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Season the beef with salt and hot sauce, then divide it between serving plates. Top with scallions. Accompany with the warmed baguette.

with a bit of the remaining oil, then heat the pan over medium-high until hot. Add 1/8 cup of the batter, then quickly lift and tip the pan to spread the batter evenly in a wide, thin circle. Let cook for 45 seconds to 1 minute, or until the batter has set. Flip and cook on the second side for about 30 seconds. Transfer the crepe to a wire rack and repeat with the remaining oil and batter to create 8 crepes. Working with one crepe at a time, in the center of each crepe, place an eighth of the salmon, 1 teaspoon of the caviar, a heaping

teaspoon of the sour cream, and a sprinkle of the lemon zest. Fold the edges up over the fillings to create a bundle, then carefully tie it closed with one of the chives. Repeat with the remaining crepes and serve right away. If the idea of bundling crepes into a purse filled with salmon and caviar seems daunting, you also can prepare these as rolled “cigars.” Simply add the fillings to each crepe as directed, arranging them in a line down the center. Starting on one side, roll the crepe and fillings up, then tie across the center with a chive.

Girlfriend staying as family’s Frequent urination at night can guest deserves more respect become more common with age Dear Abby: Last August my husband and I allowed our son’s 17-year-old girlfriend, “Lindsay,” to move into our home from out of state because she needs to live here for a year to establish residency for school. She’s a wonderful girl, mature, social and helpful. My problem is my other sons (ages 18 and 14) are very angry we have allowed a “stranger” to move in. My 18-year-old is a college student who lives on campus an hour away, but comes home on weekends. He and his younger brother feel I show favoritism to Lindsay, and they make frequent comments about the non-family member. They worry I’m spending money on her even though they know her mom sends her money. I’ll admit it has been nice to have a girl around. My boys sleep half the day away on weekends, but she gets up and is happy to run errands with me. I still include my sons in many activities without Lindsay, as I always have, and I did not anticipate this hostility. I feel bad for her because they make little attempt to hide it. My son loves his girlfriend, and I want her to feel comfortable and welcome without alienating my other sons. Help! – Mom Of Three Sons

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips Dear Mom: You and your husband are the parents, which means you are supposed to be running this “asylum” – not the inmates. The decision about who should or should not be a guest in your home is not up to your jealous older and younger boys, who appear to be suffering from a form of “sibling” rivalry. As a guest in your home, Lindsay should be treated with respect, and it’s not happening. You should insist upon it, and if your wishes are not complied with, there should be consequences. Dear Abby: My husband of five years has three children from previous marriages. Earlier this year he learned some disturbing information about his youngest child. He opted not to share the information with me so as not to violate her privacy. I found out about it a few weeks ago, and I am deeply hurt I was excluded. I feel I have never been included as a true part of the family, and this is just another example. He feels his explanation justifies his actions and that should be the end of it.

I am concerned he will keep other things from me he feels are none of my business in the future. I am not at all comfortable with this situation. Do you think I am overreacting? – Stepmonster

In The South Dear Stepmonster: Yes, I do. Your husband decided not to discuss something with you he felt would violate his daughter’s privacy. Much as you might like to, you can’t push your way into being accepted. If relationships are going to happen, they must evolve naturally. So calm down and stop personalizing this. It isn’t a threat to your marriage unless you make it so. Dear Abby: In this day and age, with computers and the ability to backspace, cut, paste and delete so easily, why do you still use a P.S.? Seems to me P.S. needs to be used only with handwritten letters. –

Candice In Phoenix Dear Candice: Mmmm ... not so fast. The majority of my readers communicate with me via the Internet, as you did. They use P.S. to indicate what they are saying is an afterthought, and so do I in some of my responses. • Write Dear Abby at www. dearabby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Dear Dr. K: I’m an older woman in good health, but I can’t get a good night’s sleep because I keep waking up to go to the bathroom. What can I do? Dear Reader: “Nocturia” is the medical term for the need to get up frequently to urinate during the night. It’s a common cause of sleep loss, especially among older adults. In severe cases, a person may get up as many as five or six times during the night. This can lead to sleep deprivation and daytime fatigue. One common cause of nocturia is easily corrected. Watch (and consider cutting down on) how much you drink in the two hours before bedtime. Be particularly careful about drinks containing caffeine and alcohol: They both cause the kidneys to pass more water. Nocturia becomes more common with age, and several different conditions can cause it. Some are just the result of aging, and some are diseases. As we get older, our brains produce less antidiuretic hormone. Normally, this hormone travels in the blood and causes the kidneys to make less urine. Since we make less hormone as we get older, we

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff make more urine at night. Sometimes doctors treat this condition with a drug that causes the same effects as antidiuretic hormone. Age also reduces the holding capacity of our bladder. Even when you don’t have that much fluid in the bladder, it senses it is full. As a result, the bladder sends urgent signals to your brain that you need to urinate. There are several diseases that can cause nocturia. Heart failure causes blood to be pumped less efficiently through the kidneys. That leads to a buildup of excess fluid in the blood and the rest of the body. And that, in turn, causes the heart and kidneys to do everything they can to pass as much of that excess fluid as possible out in the urine. Diabetes is another example. The higher levels of sugar in the blood that comes from diabetes “sucks” fluid out of the tissues and cells of the body and into the blood. The extra fluid in the blood then is eliminated by the kidneys into the urine.

Low-grade urinary tract bacterial infections can cause frequent urination, usually of small amounts of urine. Sometimes an infection is suspected because it also hurts to urinate, but that’s not always the case. Neurological conditions can affect the signals to and from the bladder, and the efficiency with which the bladder muscles function. One common example is “overactive bladder,” which causes increased contractions of the muscles that cause urination. Muscle-relaxant drugs can help. (I’ve put an illustration of the female urinary system on my website, www.askdoctork.com.) Medications, especially diuretics (widely used both to lower blood pressure and to rid the body of excess fluid), can cause nocturia as well. Try the one thing you can do yourself: Cut down on the amount of fluid you drink in the two hours before bedtime. If that doesn’t work, you should get checked out by your doctor. • Write to Dr. Komaroff at www.askdoctork.com or Ask Doctor K, 10 Shattuck St., Second Floor, Boston, MA 02115.

Sweet, saucy wine labels can set tone for your date marketing their wines with a wink to modern romance. The result was wines that take their names from the frequently used social media statuses. Taken is a red wine, a blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot; Complicated is available in a red blend and a chardonnay. Available also will be made in multiple varietals. “Wine has a history of romance, and Taken Wine Company is putting a new millennial spin on it,” Phelps said. “Taken is the perfect Valentine’s gift to let someone know how you feel – or even to propose with.” Speaking of the married life, Monogamy wine comes from California-based Canopy Management and is available as a cabernet sauvignon or chardonnay. The company first came out with a wine called PromisQous, a blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, zinfandel and petite syrah. At tastings, people would ask, “Here’s PromisQous. What about Monogamy?” said Mary Ann Vangrin, company spokeswoman. In other words, being PromisQous led to Monogamy. “At one tasting recently, we heard a story about a guy who had proposed to his girlfriend with a bottle of Monogamy on which he had written ‘Will you marry me?’ (She said yes.) Clearly, this wouldn’t have worked out so

By MICHELLE LOCKE The Associated Press All wine pairs well with romance. But some bottles really wear their hearts on their labels. Whether you’re interested in the Birds & bees sweet red wine or want to cut straight to the chase with some Simply Naked chardonnay, bottles abound with labels that range from sweet to saucy. Feeling true to the one you love? Perhaps Monogamy wine is what you seek. Or maybe the mood calls for Menage a Trois, a popular line of California wines from Trinchero Family Estates. (For the record, the name stems from the fact that the flagship wine, a red blend, is a mix of zinfandel, merlot and cabernet sauvignon.) For a wine that makes a definite statement about your intentions, the Taken Wine Co. has one wine called Taken and another called Complicated. A third, Available, is planned. The company was founded by Carlo Trinchero and Josh Phelps, childhood friends who grew up in the Napa Valley and have family in the wine business. The inspiration for the company name, launched in 2010, was when they joked that all the names they wanted were, literally, taken. But after a while they began to explore the idea of

well had it been a bottle of PromisQous,” Vangrin said. Wines with a loving message on the bottle aren’t limited to U.S. producers. From Argentina there’s Bodega Renacer’s Enamore, which means “in love” in Spanish. It’s also a play on the word “Amarone,” which refers to an Italian style of wine made with partially dried grapes. Enamore is a joint production between Bodega Renacer in the Mendoza region of Argentina and Allegrini, a well-known producer of Italian Amarone. The Enamore version of the wine is made of malbec, syrah, bonarda and cabernet franc grapes dried and made in the Amarone style. And from Sicily there’s Lamuri Nero d’Avola from the producer Tasca D’Amerita. Lamuri means love in the Sicilian dialect and this red wine is made entirely from nero d’Avola grapes grown on the island. Perhaps yours is not a storybook romance? There’s a wine called Troublemaker from Hope Family Wines and another called The Ball Buster, a shiraz-based wine from Tait Wines in Australia’s Barossa Valley. And for those very special occasions – perhaps toward the end of a relationship? – there’s French import Fat Bastard wine and a red grenache wine titled, simply, Bitch.

A timer counts down as Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen testifies before the House Financial Services Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington. Yellen said if the economy keeps improving, the Fed will take “further measured steps” to reduce the support it’s providing through monthly bond purchases.

Measured steps Yellen to investors: Expect continuity at the Fed By MARTIN CRUTSINGER The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen sought Tuesday to reassure investors she will embrace the approach to interest-rate policy that her predecessor, Ben Bernanke, pursued before he stepped down as chairman last month. Yellen told Congress if the economy keeps improving, the Fed will take “further measured steps” to reduce the support it’s providing through monthly bond purchases. In her first public comments since taking over the top Fed job last week, Yellen said she expects a “great deal of continuity” with Bernanke. She signaled she supports his view that the economy is strengthening enough to withstand a pullback in stimulus but that rates should stay low to further improve a still-lackluster economy. Yellen’s remarks, delivered to a House committee, suggested the Fed will keep its key short-term rate near zero for a prolonged period. “The recovery in the labor market is far from complete,” Yellen said, an indication the Fed is in no hurry to boost short-term rates. Her message of continuity at the Fed was a reassuring one for investors, and it contributed to a rally on Wall Street. Yellen said the Fed is monitoring volatility in global markets but doesn’t think it poses a serious risk to the United States. “Since the financial crisis and the

depths of the recession, substantial progress has been made in restoring the economy to health and strengthening the financial system,” Yellen said in her testimony for the House Financial Services Committee. “Still, there is more to do.” Some Republican lawmakers expressed concern to Yellen that the Fed’s extraordinary support could eventually ignite high inflation or destabilize financial markets. The committee chairman, Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, a critic of the Fed, said there were “clearly limits to what monetary policy can achieve.” Hensarling questioned whether the Fed had sent confusing signals to investors by changing its possible timetable for future actions on interest rates. Yellen, the first woman to lead the central bank in its 100 years, delivered the Fed’s twice-a-year report before the House panel a week after being sworn in to succeed Bernanke. He stepped down Jan. 31 after eight years as chairman. Many economists think the Fed bond buying, which totaled $85 billion a month during 2013, will be reduced in $10 billion increments this year until the purchases are eliminated in December. The purchases of Treasury and mortgage bonds are aimed at stimulating the economy by keeping long-term borrowing rates low. Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., sought to have Yellen outline what developments might cause the Fed

to slow or suspend its reductions in bond purchases. Maloney asked whether the weak job reports for December and January might prompt such a pause. Yellen acknowledged she was surprised by the sluggish job gains the past two months. But she cautioned against “jumping to conclusions.” She suggested job growth might have been held down by severe weather and was not necessarily a signal of a hiring slowdown. She noted that when the Fed next meets to consider interest rates March 1819, it will have another employment report to review. Yellen said the committee won’t likely change its pace of bond reductions unless it sees a “notable change” in the economic outlook. The Fed is forecasting the economy and the job market will continue to strengthen in 2014. On bank regulation, Yellen said the Fed was committed to implementing the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, which overhauls regulation to try to prevent a future financial crisis. But she agreed in response to questions that bank oversight that’s too aggressive can keep banks from making loans small businesses need to operate. Yellen repeated the Fed’s assurances that it intends to keep its key short-term rate near zero “well past” the time the unemployment rate drops below 6.5 percent as long as inflation remains low.

Sochi’s merchants ride Putin’s Olympic dream By ANGELA CHARLTON The Associated Press KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia – Vladimir Putin isn’t the only one with a lot riding on the success of the Sochi Olympics. Local businesses and residents have a lot to gain if these Olympics fulfill Putin’s pledge to turn Sochi and its environs from a summer playground for well-off Russians into a year-round international resort for everyone. But that’s a big “if.” The limited number of foreign spectators at these games is dampening dreams. So is all the negative attention around the not-quite-finished hotels, and the many “For Rent” signs on empty apartments around the Olympic Park. So merchants are trying to keep their spirits up by looking past the Olympics to an upcoming new Formula 1 race in Sochi and the 2018 World Cup. Maybe by then, the tourists will come? “It would be nice to be able to stay open all year, so that no one has to take an extra job,” said Marina Nagabedian, whose family owns a convenience store near the sands of the Black Sea shore, not far from Olympic Park. In the past, her husband took a second job in the winter to help feed their two kids, and they just “waited for summer again.” “In summer, we have lines out the door,” said Nagabedian, in her 40s. This week, in the midst of the Win-

Illinois father, son guilty of business loan fraud URBANA – A father and son from northeast Illinois will be sentenced May 16 after pleading guilty to defrauding a federal business loan program of $1.7 million. The U.S. Department of Justice says 54-year-old Gregory Yates of Bourbonnais and his 32-year-old son, Terrance Yates, pleaded guilty Monday in federal court to conspiracy to commit bank fraud. The younger Yates also pleaded guilty to money laundering. According to the Justice Department, the two owned several companies. One company borrowed $5.95 million to buy a bankrupt business from another family member. The Yateses planned to use $1.7 million for construction work on the new business. But they hired their own company to do the work and seriously inflated the costs. The father faces up to 30 years in prison and the son 40.

Graco recalling nearly 3.8M child car seats

A worker removes a sale sign from a store window along a pedestrian mall in central Sochi, Russia. Vladimir Putin isn’t the only one who has a lot riding on the success of the Sochi Olympics. Local businesses and residents have a lot to gain if these Olympics fulfill Putin’s pledge to turn Sochi and its environs from a summer playground for well-off Russians into a year-round international resort for everyone. ter Olympics, the store sees barely a trickle of customers. Many come in to get change for large bills instead of buying her wares: milk from regional farms, fresh poppyseed buns, “Sochi”-emblazoned slippers. A look back at past Olympics suggests the odds are against local businesses reaping huge rewards, despite ambitious promises. The 2004 games left Greece saddled with huge debt and didn’t lead to long-term benefits for businesses. Just a few years after the 1998 Na-

gano games in Japan, the city had little to show for its role as Olympic host. Accurate data is hard to come by, because governments don’t always want to find out – or publicize – whether the heavy expenditure was worth it. Up the nearby Caucasus Mountains, Vitaly Pishchuk is doing brisk business at a cell phone franchise in Krasnaya Polyana, with about 600,000 rubles a month in turnover.

DETROIT – Graco is recalling nearly 3.8 million car safety seats because children can be trapped by buckles that may not unlatch. The recall covers 11 models sold from 2009 through 2013. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says it has received at least 80 complaints about the seats. Parents reported having to use excessive force to unlatch the harness buckle. In some cases, the straps had to be cut to free children. Affected models include Cozy Cline, Comfort Sport, Classic Ride 50, My Ride 65, My Ride with Safety Surround, My Ride 70, Size 4 Me 70, Smartseat, Nautilus, Nautilus Elite and Argos 70.

Follow a phased approach for living in retirement Although many Americans now plan for a retirement up to 30 years, your retirement may last much longer. Traditionally, retirees were advised to project income needs over the length of time of retirement, add on an annual adjustment for inflation, and then identify any potential income shortfall. But the planning required may not be that linear. For example, research suggests some retirees’ expenses – other than health care – may slowly decrease over time. That means many retirees – depending on personal expenses – may need more income early in their retirement than later. This necessitates taking a fresh look at retiree expenses and income, as well as withdrawal and estate planning strategies. • Phase 1: The Go-Go Years (60-70). The need to potentially stretch out income over a longer period than previous generations also means some people may not want to tap Social Security when they’re first eligible. Consider that for each year you delay taking Social Security beyond your full retirement age

planning – a situation that could significantly affect your financial situation, especially your taxes. Finally, don’t overlook any pension assets in which you may be vested, especially if you changed employers over the course of your career. Pensions can supply you with regular income for life. Because many retirees are quite healthy in early retirement, this may be the best time to maximize your “bucket” list. Take that trip you’ve never taken, go visit the grandkids or hit the golf course. Enjoy life in this phase. As one of my clients likes to say, “Nobody gets out of this game alive. You may as well enjoy.” • Phase 2: Slow Go Years (70-80). By April 1 of the year after you reach age 70½, you’ll generally be required to begin making annual withdrawals from traditional IRAs and employer-sponsored retirement plans (except for assets in a current employer’s retirement plan if you’re still working and do not own more than 5 percent of the business). The penalty for not taking your required minimum distribution can be steep: half of what you should have

Investing Timothy Dooley until age 70, you’ll receive a benefit increase of 6 percent to 8 percent, depending on your age. One caveat: If you do decide to delay collecting Social Security, you may want to sign up for Medicare at age 65 to avoid possibly paying more for medical insurance later. Also plan ahead as to how you’ll pay for health care costs not covered by Medicare as you age. Remember Medicare does not pay for ongoing long-term care or assisted living, and qualifying for Medicaid requires spending down your assets. If you have accumulated assets in qualified employer-sponsored retirement plans, now may be the time to decide whether to roll that money into a tax-deferred IRA, which could make managing your investments easier. A tax and financial professional also can help you decide which accounts to tap first at this point in your post-retirement

withdrawn. Withdrawals from Roth IRAs, however, are not required during the owner’s lifetime. If money is not needed for income and efficient wealth transfer is a goal, a Roth IRA may be an attractive option. Also, consider reviewing the asset allocation of your investment portfolio. Does it have enough growth potential to keep up with inflation? Is it adequately diversified among different types of stocks and income-generating securities? • Phase 3: No Go Years (80+). Review your financial documents to make sure they are true to your wishes and that beneficiaries are consistent. Usually, these documents include a will and paperwork governing brokerage accounts, IRAs, annuities, pensions and, in some cases, trusts. Many people also draft a durable power of attorney (someone who will manage your finances if you’re not able) and a living will (which names a person to make medical decisions on your behalf if you’re incapacitated). You’ll still need to stay on top of your investments. For example, an

Drawing visitors may not be easy

• YELLEN Continued from page E1 Many economists don’t expect short-term rates to be increased until late 2015. The unemployment rate in January fell to 6.6 percent, the lowest point in more than five years. Still, in her testimony, Yellen said unemployment remained “well above levels” that Fed officials think are consistent with its goal of maximum employment. She said the job market still faces problems. “Those out of a job for more than six months continue to make up an unusually large fraction of the unemployed,” she said. “The number of people working part time but would prefer a full-time job remains very high.” In her testimony, she stuck closely to the positions taken by Bernanke. She said the Fed expects the economy to expand moderately this year, with unemployment continuing to fall and inflation moving up toward the Fed’s 2 percent target. Yellen’s testimony comes before she has presided over her first meeting as Fed chair. That will occur March 18-19, after which she will hold her first news conference.

and more. Even drawing in Russian visitors, as the government hopes to do with a promised 42,000 hotel rooms and 150 kilometers of slopes, may not be so easy. Vacationing here “is pretty expensive for an average Russian tourist,” both up the mountain and down on the Sochi shore, Pishchuk said. “You can travel to Turkey or Spain for 300 bucks.” The partly completed shopping mall across the street has a boutique selling furs next to two high-end jewelry stores – but nowhere to get a cheap T-shirt. Sochi, with its mild climate, once drew the Communist elite to its seaside resorts, but was widely seen as a summer destination. Putin then turned Krasnaya Polyana in the mountains above Sochi into his ski getaway. The region’s $51 billion transformation for the Olympics has been by all accounts striking. But for all the money spent on Olympic infrastructure, 74-year-old Sochi native Dina Kobolenko said, “This was a village, is a vil-

• MERCHANTS Continued from page E1 Foreign tourists, construction workers – “people from all social classes need us,” he said. He hopes it stays that way beyond the Winter Games so he can afford to take his 4-year-old son to a new Sochi amusement park dubbed Russia’s Disneyland. And maybe they’ll learn to ski. If business sags, the parent company will likely shut down his roadside shop and leave him looking for work elsewhere. “The Olympics are a great advertisement for our city,” said Pishchuk, 34, who dreams of this region becoming Russia’s Monaco. “Even if everything isn’t perfect ... everything was done so that people will come back. That’s the main thing.” Then he paused and reflected on the challenge of attracting visitors here. Americans have little incentive to cross half the planet for the Caucasus slopes. Europeans have the Alps,

lage and will remain a village” – not Russia’s answer to Las Vegas or Dubai. She’s proud of her city and can’t afford to be down on the games. Her three-generation household’s income depends in part on a tourist kiosk she manages selling maps, books and postcards outside the Sochi train station. Any extra profit she can make on a Russian-English map of town helps her 12,000-rublea-month pension stretch farther. She was horrified at the amount of money spent on the games – “That is a lot! A lot, a lot!” – not to mention the estimated $2 billion a year it will cost to maintain Olympic facilities. And she’s skeptical of the government’s projections of bringing in cruise ship business, doubling tourism to 6 million visitors a year and creating 600,000 jobs. Even before Russia was handed the Olympics, economists had urged the government to diversify a heavily oil- and gas-dependent economy and invest in structural reforms.

annual portfolio and asset allocation review are important. Keep in mind a financial adviser may be able to set up an automatic rebalancing program for you. And finally, be aware that some financial companies require that you begin taking distributions from annuities once you reach age 85. Depending on the size of your estate, consideration of some gifting may be appropriate. It is always fun to watch your kids manage the prepayment before you are gone. The big unknown in this phase is the end of life medical expenses. Long-term care also may be a consideration. Preparing for a retirement that could encompass a third of your life span can be challenging. Regularly review your situation with financial and tax professionals and be prepared to make adjustments. Happy planning.

U.S. job openings fall in December from 5-year high By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER The Associated Press WASHINGTON – U.S. employers posted fewer job openings in December and hiring slowed, adding to evidence the job market weakened that month. Still, the number of available jobs remained near a five and a half-year high. The Labor Department said Tuesday openings slipped 1 percent to 3.99 million in December, from 4.03 million the previous month. November was the first time employers had posted more than 4 million open jobs since March 2008. Total hiring fell to 4.4 million from 4.5 million in November, according to Tuesday’s report. While job openings are mostly back to pre-recession levels, hiring is below the roughly 5 million a month that’s typical for a healthy market. Job gains slowed in January for the second straight month, according to last

week’s monthly employment report. January’s report showed employers added just 113,000 jobs, up from December’s scant 75,000. Both months were far below average monthly gains of 194,000 last year. The January employment report showed net job gains, which is the number of people hired minus those who were laid off, quit or retired. Tuesday’s report, known as the Job Openings and Labor Turnover survey, provides more details. It shows the overall number of people hired each month, rather than just the net gain. Total hiring in December was the weakest in six months, according to the JOLTS report. Quitting also declined in December, after reaching a five-year high in November. More quitting is a positive sign, because people usually quit when they either have a new job – typically for more pay – or are confident they can find one.

By PHILLIP ALDER Newspaper Enterprise Association

Vinoba Bhave, an Indian advocate for human rights who died in 1982, said, “Innumerable actions are going on through us all the time. If we started counting them, we should never come to an end.” Luckily, it is not that tough at the bridge table. But the more counting you do, the better you will play -- our theme this week. In today’s deal, look at the auction and the West and North hands. South is in four spades. West leads the diamond ace. How should he continue the defense? North, holding a low doubleton, reasonably chose to use Stayman. (If he had responded three no-trump, that contract could also have been defeated.) South correctly rebid two hearts when holding four cards in each major. North jumped to three notrump. And South, knowing his partner had four spades, corrected back to game in that strain. When the dummy comes down, a good defender irst checks out the high-card points. South indicated 15-17, dummy has 13, and West holds seven. That leaves 3-5

for East. So East could have one winner to go with West’s diamond ace-king. But where is the fourth defensive trick? Now count the suit lengths. Dummy has three hearts, South showed four, and West has ive. East must have a singleton. This is West’s best chance. At trick two -- not after cashing the diamond king, a card needed as an entry -- West shifts to a heart. Then, East can take the irst or second round of spades, return a diamond to his partner’s king, and receive a heart ruff to defeat the contract.

CROSSWORD

HOROSCOPE

! !

TODAY - Make a point to spend time with friends and relatives in the coming months. Plan a trip, but consider your overhead as well as hidden costs before you make a commitment. You will make an impression if you learn new skills and concentrate on your work. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Refrain from sharing your secrets. Organize personal paperwork or deal with unfinished projects to put an accomplished feel on the day. Relaxation in the evening will be rewarding. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Devote time to your favorite hobby or one of your many talents. Someone who comes from a very different background will inspire you. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Don’t damage your reputation by revealing secret information. In order to avoid a problem with your friends or relatives, be very careful what you say to whom. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- A change of scenery will go a long way toward reducing your stress. Avoid people and situations that are getting you down, and plan a pleasurable outing with friends or family. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Reflect on your past and think about what you want and need out of life to begin the process of making your dreams come true. No one else can do this for you. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Keep your anger at bay. You risk overreacting if you take constructive criticism too seriously. Find an enjoyable activity that will help you stay calm and out of trouble. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Speak up if you feel someone is withholding important information from you. Getting all the facts and asking the right questions could have a positive effect on your future. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Do something physical to relieve your boredom. Rather than dwell on your problems, check out your community for activities that interest you. You will be pleasantly surprised at what you discover. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- You may feel disappointed with the way your life is going. Don’t let your fears prevent you from reaching your goals. Take positive steps to make personal improvements. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Today will be a success if you devote your energy and enthusiasm to a cause you believe in. You will make new friends with your pleasant attitude and desire to help. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Attend to unfinished business. You must sort through personal documents carefully in order to avoid a costly mistake. If you offer assistance to someone who needs it, you’ll receive similar treatment. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Those who love you deserve your attention. If something is seriously bothering you, now is the time to clear it up. Problems will continue to grow if you neglect them.
