Flooding possible as snow melts Continued forecast for precipitation could add to the troubles By JEFF ENGELHARDT jengelhardt@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – Weather problems might not melt away with the snow this week.

Winter weather advisory The National Weather Service has included McHenry County in a winter weather advisory, warning that snow fall totals could creep to a half a foot or more by day’s end. Heavy snow was expected to challenge commuters Monday, starting in the morning and not slowing until early Monday evening, according to the service. McHenry County is expected to receive between 3 to 7 inches of snow. The winter weather advisory was set to last from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday. Monday’s precipitation will give way to above-freezing temperatures and threats of flooding as the week progresses.

TRANSPORT CHAINS RESCUE ANIMALS SET TO BE EUTHANIZED

By CHACOUR KOOP and KERRY LESTER The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD – A bipartisan collection of lawmakers has come together to pitch something not accomplished in years – a change in Illinois’ school funding formula that would narrow the gap between the amount spent on students in richer and poorer school districts. The caveat? It’s an election year, so chances that lawmakers will ultimately act on the plan are in doubt. The proposal, presented by Democrats and Republicans on a Senate education committee this month, would put almost all state education funding into one pot, then require districts to demonstrate need before receiving part of it. The current method factors in a district’s Ill. Sen. Andy p o v e r t y f o r some types of Manar D-Bunker Hill state aid but not others, and it treats funding for Chicago schools differently. Backers say it’s time to act on changes, with a tough budget year ahead in which further cuts to school funding are a real possibility. The issue has support from lawmakers around the state, and there is hope that Chicago officials will embrace the changes in exchange for more stable funding, even though it could mean millions of dollars less for the city’s schools. “We have to get the distribution formula right. What should it focus on, where should our priorities be?” said state Sen. Andy Manar,

8WATER COOLER Peacock killed in Texas after attacking women HOUSTON – The suburban Houston caretaker of a pet peacock dubbed “Meanie” shot and killed his feathered friend after the bird fanned his feathers and used his talons to attack several women. The Harris County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement the peacock attacked a woman Friday while she was being questioned by a deputy investigating a complaint about the bird. The deputy fired a stun gun at the peacock, but the bird continued his attack. The statement said the frightened woman fled indoors and the peacock’s caretaker used his shotgun to kill the bird. The peacock’s caretaker, Riley Richards, told KHOUTV he and his wife called the bird Meanie. He said the bird, who was owned by his daughter, had previously attacked other female relatives.

Prisoners’ use of smuggled phones on the rise By BRENDAN FARRINGTON The Associated Press TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – They’re hidden in babies’ diapers, ramen noodle soup packages, footballs, soda cans and even body cavities. Not drugs or weapons, but cellphones. They’re becoming a growing problem in prisons across the country as they are used to make threats, plan escapes and for inmates to continue to make money from illegal activity, even while behind bars. “You can pick states all across the country, and you’ll see everything from hits being ordered on individuals to criminal enterprises being run from inside institutions with cellphones,” said Michael Crews, head of Florida’s Department of Corrections. When two murderers serving life sentences escaped from Florida Panhandle prison last fall, a search of their cells turned up a cellphone used to help plan the getaway, drawing attention to the burgeoning problem. It was just one of 4,200 cellphones confiscated by prison officials last year, or 11 per day. “The scary part is, if we found 4,200, we know that’s not all of them,” Crews said. And while prison officials are trying their best to keep cellphones out, it’s not such an easy task. Jamming cellphone signals is prohibited by federal law, and it costs more than $1 million each for authorized towers that control what cellphone calls can come in and out of prisons. Some prisons even have to police their own corrections officers who sometimes help inmates receive contraband. In Texas, a death row inmate made several calls with

arrived in Texas, she was arrested for her part in the prison cellphone scheme. Tabler wasn’t happy about that and made another call to Whitmire. “He said he was going to have me killed,” Whitmire said. In other cases around the country, infamous murderer Charles Manson, imprisoned in California, was found with a cellphone under his mattress twice. Two Indiana prisoners were convicted of using cellphones smuggled in by guards to run an operation that distributed methamphetamine, heroin and other drugs. A prisoner in Georgia was accused this year of using two cellphones to impersonate a sheriff’s lieutenant and scam elderly drivers who had received red light camera tickets, getting them each to pay about $500. In Oklahoma, a newspaper investigation found dozens of prisoners using cellphones

a cellphone to state Sen. John Whitmire, who chairs the Criminal Justice Committee. Whitmire didn’t believe it when he started receiving calls from death row inmate Richard Tabler. “He held his phone out, I guess outside his cell and there was a very distinct prison noise. He said, ‘Did you hear that?’ and I said, ‘Yup. That’s a prison,’ ” Whitmire said. “I said, ‘How’d you get that phone?’ He said, ‘I paid $2,100 for it.’ I said, ‘How do you keep it charged?’ He said, ‘I have a charger.’ ” The calls continued, and Whitmire had the phone investigated. The month before, Tabler used 2,800 minutes and was sharing the phone with other prisoners, Whitmire said. Tabler’s mother,in Georgia was paying the bill and collecting payments from the other prisoners’ families. Tabler asked Whitmire if he could help arrange a visit with his mother. When she

to maintain Facebook pages. The Oklahoman found about three dozen inmates who were disciplined by prison officials, and its reporters found about as many who hadn’t been caught. Florida prisoners also have been using social media with cellphones. “We’ve got inmates running their own blogs and all kinds of stuff. We stop it when we catch it, but it’s very difficult to police the whole Internet. We don’t have Internet police on our staff,” said assistant corrections secretary James Upchurch. Those helping inmates smuggle phones into Florida prisons can be charged with a third-degree felony punishable by up to five years in prison. In Mississippi, the penalty can be 15 years for having a cellphone in prisons. As corrections departments keep looking for new ways to stop cellphone smuggling, prisoners are finding creative, new ways to get them in. “You may get a prepackaged, sealed ramen noodle soup – and it’s completely sealed – the weight seems to be right, but when you open it, there’s a cellphone inside,” said Timothy Cannon, Florida’s deputy corrections secretary. “They’re very, very, very creative in the way they do some of these things.” Phones have been hidden in the hollowed out centers of large stacks of legal documents. One corrections officer found two liter soda bottles that were used as floats outside a prison. When he pulled them out of a pond, bags containing more than a dozen cellphones each were found tied to them.

Tom Dorsch Tom Dorsch would make a very good friend to have – or a very bad enemy. The Chicago native, after a six-year stint in the Marine Corps, ended up as a special agent of the U.S. Diplomatic Security Service, the security and law enforcement arm of the U.S. State Department. It’s a job that took him from war-torn Beirut to Iraq, Liberia, Haiti, Colombia and a long list of other places you wouldn’t want to visit. His job was to keep VIPs alive, and he was good at it – he eventually became training director for foreign presidential security details for the State Department’s Office of Antiterrorism Assistance. Dorsch also has authored a trilogy of historical fiction books and established a Wisconsin-based outdoor survival school. Now living in Lake in the Hills, Dorsch settled down, so to speak, as the operations director for On Target Range & Tactical Center in Crystal Lake, where he puts his skills to use in the classroom. Senior Reporter and self-professed gun nut Kevin Craver talked to Dorsch at the business about his travels and stories.

Craver: Where did your career get started? Dorsch: In the Philippines while in the Marine Corps patrolling the jungles. There was an insurgency going on at the time. They’d send us out to engage or capture insurgents – the New People’s Army – in the 1970s. [The NPA is the armed wing of the Communist Party of the Philippines.] I went to college on the GI Bill – it was the only way I could afford it. I went to Honduras to do a thesis on the insurgency [in Nicaragua] of the Contras against the Sandinistas. I worked training the Contras as a volunteer, kind of like the Flying Tigers in World War II.

Craver: Where did you go for spring break? Somalia? Dorsch: I almost went there – I was in that part of the world.

Craver: So how did you get into the diplomatic security service? Dorsch: I was working as a security contractor in Khartoum, Sudan, collecting intelligence for the U.S. Embassy. I got to know the staff, and they invited me to become a special agent. Before Benghazi, no one knew anything about [the service].

Craver: Colombia was – is – dangerous. Did you have any dealings with FARC? [FARC is a

Communist rebel group that has waged a guerrilla war with the government since 1964.] Dorsch: FARC was very active when I was there. I was assigned, basically, to keep the president of Colombia alive. I was an adviser and trained his detail, provided them with equipment. President [Alvaro] Uribe had 17 assassination attempts against him, but he survived.

Craver: Why did you settle down? Dorsch: I have a 2-year-old. I didn’t get married until I was 48, and I was still working, coming and going from Colombia, where I met my wife, who worked at the U.S. Embassy. Even then ... I was married in 2006, and in 2007 I went to Liberia to do the same thing I did in Colombia – start a program to train the Liberian Secret Service to keep THEIR president alive. In Iraq, I helped train Iraqi police to take over for Americans and continue to protect diplomats. Believe it or not, there are a large number of loyal Iraqis we can trust, and a lot of them have given their lives protecting our diplomats. I guess my specialty was to go and start up these protection programs.

Craver: It transitions nicely to your job now – training people how to protect themselves. Dorsch: You’re right. The parallel is not ironic but fitting for doing virtually the same thing for civilians in the United States. It’s a channeling of all the past experiences to help keep people alive and properly conceal their carry.

Craver: Do you have a signature course? Dorsch: The courses I teach are “The Intrepid Traveler,” “VIP Protection” and “Seven Guns That Changed The World.” But courses are “owned” so to speak by the individual instructors.

Craver: Who would take a course on VIP protection? Dorsch: I gear it toward police – to understand what tactics they’re using, the nature of a protective detail and their role in facilitating it. There are also students who want to get into the business.

Craver: And you’ve taught outdoor survival courses? Dorsch: I started an outdoor survival school, first in Wisconsin and then Colorado. In Colorado, I lived “off the grid.” No electricity – just a wood-burning stove.

Craver: I noticed you have a couple of books written. Dorsch: It’s a trilogy of his-

Rules for prison stores scrapped Single company could have acquired up to a $30 million contract The ASSOCIATED PRESS SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – A chief state procurement officer has nixed changes in how Illinois purchases snacks, toiletries and other goods sold to prison inmates – apparently heeding criticism from small businesses that they gave supply giants an unfair advantage. Matt Brown, who oversees contracts for major state agencies, issued an order scrapping the changes earlier this month on grounds a single company looked set to land the bulk of the business, the Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises newspapers reported on Sunday. Under rules fashioned by the Illinois Department of Corrections, virtually all other vendors could have been disqualified from the latest round of bidding, leaving a

“It was going to be a bad thing if this went forward. It really would have hurt Illinois businesses.” Randy Hellman Pinckneyville Correctional Center employee

lone company with an up to $30 million contract to stock the prison shops. “Just accepting the last man standing really was not in the best interest of the state,” Brown told the Herald & Review Springfield Bureau. The canteens cater to nearly 50,000 people behind bars in Illinois, so millions of dollars are at stake. As it is, each prison has taken the lead in picking vendors, meaning local firms got a share of the business. The proposed changes would have centralized the process.

“It was going to be a bad thing if this went forward,” Randy Hellman, who works in the canteen supply department at the Pinckneyville Correctional Center. “It really would have hurt Illinois businesses.” Currently, Keefe Coffee and Supply Co. of St. Louis accounts for around 30 percent of the inmate-sales market, with about 180, often smaller companies making up the rest, one state study of commissaries found. The push for changes came years ago, when state auditors expressed concern that some goods weren’t going through established bidding channels. While halting the proposed changes, Brown indicated the status quo wasn’t acceptable either. A corrections department spokesman, Tom Shaer, said there was no timetable yet for drawing up new rules that take Brown’s reservations in account. He added, “We will take the time necessary to get this right.”

Student found dead in Chicago dorm No foul play expected as investigation continues on Pittsburgh native The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – The body of a male University of Chicago student from Pennsylvania – who police say had been dead for some time – was found in his campus dorm room over the weekend, university officials said Sunday. Chicago police spokesman Mike Sullivan said officers found the body at the university building around 4:15 p.m. Saturday. He didn’t have further details on the state of the body or the investigation. The deceased was identified as third-year student Nicholas Brastins Barnes of Pittsburgh, university officials said. The 20-year-old was

found in his room at the International House on campus, which is a residential and program center. The Cook County medical examiner’s office said the results of a Sunday autopsy were inconclusive and toxicology reports are pending. There was no evidence of foul play, according to a campus-wide email sent to students from Karen Warren Coleman, vice president for campus life and student services. She said the cause of death was under investigation. No further details about the death or condition of the body were released. “University staff are making every effort to understand

the circumstances surrounding Nicholas’ death,” Coleman’s email said. Barnes was majoring in Germanic studies and had studied in Austria in the fall of 2012, undergraduate Dean of Students Susan Art wrote to students, staff and faculty in another email. She noted his involvement in the campus literary publication called Sliced Bread Magazine. “Nick will be painfully missed,” Art wrote. “He was an excellent student, admired by faculty and peers alike.” The university planned to host a memorial and Barnes’ family members were planning a funeral in Pennsylvania, university officials said.

House Dems try to force votes on wage, immigration

Northwest Herald / NWHerald.com

Chicago Vizion presents... SPRING TRY OUTS!!!

By DONNA CASSATA The Associated Press

MIDDLE SCHOOL (5TH – 8TH)

HIGH SCHOOL (9TH – 11TH)

WASHINGTON – House Democrats are determined to cast an election-year spotlight on Republican opposition to raising the minimum wage and overhauling immigration laws. To try to accomplish that in the GOP-controlled House, Democrats are planning to rely on an infrequently used, rarely successful tactic known as a “discharge petition.” It requires the minority party – in this case, Democrats – to persuade some two dozen Republicans to defy their leadership, join Democrats and force a vote on setting the federal minimum wage at $10.10 an hour. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California said Democrats will push the wage issue when Congress returns from its break Feb. 24. Forcing a vote on a comprehensive overhaul of immigration laws could occur in a few months. Some questions and answers on how it works:

Sun. Feb. 23, 2014 Boys: 1:30-3:00pm Girls: 12:00-1:30pm At Woodstock High School

Q: What does a discharge petition do? A: It allows the minority or opposition party to bypass the House speaker and get a vote. First, 217 members – one more than half the House’s current membership of 432 – have to sign a petition. A motion to consider the wage issue would then be placed on the legislative calendar, but it can’t be acted on for at least seven days. Any lawmaker can then call it up but only on the second or fourth Monday of the month. The motion is debated, and if the House passes it, then lawmakers would consider and vote on the bill. Currently, there are 232 Republicans, 200 Democrats and

Democrats are planning to a “discharge petition,” which requires the minority party to persuade some two dozen Republicans to defy their leadership, to try to pass legislation raising the minimum wage and overhauling immigration laws. three vacancies in the House. All 200 Democrats would have to sign the petition, but Democrats would have a tough time getting 17 Republicans to join them. Signing a discharge petition would be a breach of loyalty for Republicans, certain to draw the wrath of the caucus, and a rebuke of Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. Republicans largely oppose any increase in the minimum wage. They say it’s an issue left to the states and that it could slow hiring in a struggling economy.

Q: What about immigration? A number of House Republicans back a comprehensive approach. Would they sign a discharge petition? A: Highly unlikely. Republicans still are unwilling to break ranks with the party and Boehner, despite the distinctly different political forces on the issue. Immigration overhaul has the support of an unusual coalition that includes some

traditional backers of the GOP. They include the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and business groups, religious organizations such as the U.S. Catholic Bishops, evangelicals and labor unions. A few Republicans have expressed support for a comprehensive bill similar to the Senate-passed measure and have pleaded for the House to act this year. They worry about the political implications in their swing districts back home. Yet it would be a remarkable step for some of the more moderate lawmakers from California and Florida to abandon Boehner. Boehner has come out with principles on immigration that call for legal status for some of the 11 million immigrants living in the country illegally and has expressed support for a piecemeal approach to the issue. Last week, however, the speaker all but ruled out the House acting on legislation this year, blaming GOP distrust of Obama to enforce any new law.

Worker-run pension boards raise questions The ASSOCIATED PRESS SACRAMENTO, Calif. – A rift between Gov. Jerry Brown and the board overseeing the nation’s largest public pension fund over rising liabilities tied to longer retiree life expectancies highlights a concern about how decisions are made at an agency with tremendous influence over state finances. The board of the California Public Employees’ Retirement System will meet Tuesday to begin considering how to address the costs associated with retirees living longer, but it already has indicated that it will ignore the governor’s request to tackle the problem immediately. Pension-reform and taxpayer advocates in California

say this outcome isn’t surprising considering the composition of the CalPERS board, which is dominated by public employees who will benefit from the pension system or those who are appointed by Democratic officeholders who receive significant campaign contributions from governm e n t l a b o r Jerry Brown unions. Calif. governor They say such an arrangement, common across the U.S., can encourage rosy investment projections and low contribution rates. “You have people who are not disinterested,” said Joe Nation, a Stanford Univer-

sity public policy professor and former Democratic state lawmaker who studies pension systems. “Unfortunately, the incentives are really misaligned.” Of the 12 members on CalPERS’ board, nine are due to collect public pensions from the agency they oversee. The board, which has one vacancy, has no independent taxpayer representative or an independent investment expert. The “public representative” appointed by the Democratic leadership in the Legislature is president of a grocery and food industry workers union. CalPERS’ board has the power to unilaterally set contributions rates for the state, cities and other government entities. Brown wants the board to

use that power to start boosting contribution rates this year. Instead, the board has indicated it will follow a staff recommendation to wait two years before increasing contributions from public employees and the government entities that pay into the pension system, then phase in those increases over a fiveyear period. Advocates for reforming the public pension systems say increasing contribution rates often means less takehome money for government workers, a move employee-dominated boards might be loath to make. “A labor-heavy retirement board might be choosing numbers that are in their favor,” said Carole D’Elia, executive director of the Little

Hoover Commission, a state watchdog agency. State government, which is among the pension fund’s contributors, would see its annual costs to the system rise from $3.8 billion to $5 billion at the end of the fiveyear period. Brown has called CalPERS’ delay unacceptable. “No one likes to pay more for pensions, but ignoring their true costs for two more years will only burden the system and cost more in the long run,” Brown wrote in a letter to the board. In a written statement, CalPERS said it must consider the ability of government agencies and employees to pay more for pensions before hiking rates. The board’s president and vice president declined to comment.

Rains give hope to drought-plagued Hawaii ranchers The ASSOCIATED PRESS HONOLULU – Weeks of slow, soaking rains are helping the grass grow again on the western slopes of Maui and Hawaii islands, giving cattle ranchers hope they may at last escape a punishing drought brought on by years of below-normal rainfall. But ranchers warn the soil will dry out if rain doesn’t continue to fall for the rest of Hawaii’s wet season, which lasts through April. “We’re pretty happy with what’s happened the last couple months,” said Pono von Holt, president of Ponoholo Ranch. “If it can sustain itself over here for the next few more months, I think we’ll start working out of a situation that we’ve been in for a long time.” Hawaii, despite its image as a lush, tropical state, has areas facing the same problem of a multiyear drought

Weeks of slow, soaking rains are helping the grass grow again on the western slopes of Maui and Hawaii islands, giving cattle ranchers hope they may at last escape a punishing drought brought on by years of below-normal rainfall. as California’s agricultural heartland and other large swaths of the West. For decades, Hawaii’s ranches – many of which are on the drier, western sides of the islands – have benefited from rains brought by cold fronts that visit the islands

from the west and northwest each winter. But in recent years, many of these cold fronts only got as far as Kauai or maybe Oahu. They bypassed Maui and the Big Island, which are both further south. Last month, though, a se-

ries of cold fronts dropped rain across the entire island chain. Rain gauges on the lower slopes of the Big Island’s west side recorded their highest January totals since 2005, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor. The rain has been so good that ranchers are holding on to calves they were planning to ship to the U.S. mainland for feeding if January and February turned out to be dry, said Alex Franco, president of Maui Cattle Co. and of the Hawaii Cattlemen’s Council industry group. The U.S. Drought Monitor upgraded the drought status of many areas, including Kihei, a tourist resort town on Maui, which is now considered to be under “severe drought” instead of “extreme drought.” Many other areas affected by drought have been upgraded to “moderate drought” or “abnormally dry.”

Hawaii cattle ranches use about one quarter of the state’s 4 million acres, mostly on the upland slopes of Maui and Big Island volcanoes. The $40 million industry produces more than 60,000 calves each year. Years of weak precipitation have been tough on ranchers. Ponoholo Ranch, which is on the slopes of Kohala Volcano on the Big Island, has had to reduce its herd of mother cows by about one-quarter to 3,200 as it endured nine years of below-normal rainfall, von Holt said. Before the drought, the ranch had about 4,700 to 5,000 mother cows. Von Holt said he won’t begin adding more cows to the herd until it rains for several more months. He also won’t consider the drought over until rainfall at the 11,000acre ranch returns to at least 80 percent of normal precipitation averaged across a 12-month period.

8WORLD BRIEFS Illegal miners refuse to be rescued in S. Africa Emergency workers in South Africa cleared a mine shaft entrance of debris Sunday, allowing miners who had been trapped below the chance to escape. The only problem was the miners were working illegally at the abandoned mine, and some stayed underground because they feared arrest if they came out, officials said. At least 11 miners were escorted to safety at the mine in Benoni, on the outskirts of Johannesburg, but an undetermined number of their comrades were still in the gold mine, emergency responder Kobus Du Plooy said by telephone late Sunday. Police were preparing to question those who came out about anyone left underground, local media reported.

Bomb derails train in Pakistan, kills 8 KARACHI, Pakistan – A bomb placed by an ethnic separatist group derailed a train in Pakistan on Sunday, killing eight people, police and the militants said. Three of the dead were children and another 20 people were wounded by the blast in Kashmor district, which caused several train cars to run off the track, said police official Mohammad Azeem. Kashmor is in Sindh province but adjoins insurgency-hit Baluchistan. One of several ethnic Baluch separatist groups operating in the province, the Baluch Republican Army, claimed responsibility. The group’s spokesman, Sarbaz Baluch, said in a phone call to The Associated Press from an undisclosed location that the attack was a reaction to what he alleged were killings in Baluchistan’s Dera Bugti region by Pakistani paramilitaries.

Kerry calls for action on climate change All residents should The ASSOCIATED PRESS JAKARTA, Indonesia – U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday called climate change perhaps the world’s “most fearsome” destructive weapon and mocked those who deny its existence or question its causes, comparing them to people who insist the Earth is flat. In a speech to Indonesian students, civic leaders and

government officials, Kerry tore into climate change skeptics. He accused them of using shoddy science and scientists to delay steps needed to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases at the risk of imperiling the planet. A day earlier, the U.S. and China announced an agreement to cooperate more closely on combating climate change. American officials hope that will help encourage others, in-

cluding developing countries like Indonesia and India, to follow suit. China and the United States are the biggest sources of emissions of carbon dioxide and other gases that cause the atmosphere to trap solar heat and alter the climate. Scientists say such changes are leading to drought, wildfires, rising sea levels, melting polar ice, plant and animal extinctions and other extreme

conditions. Also in the Jakarta speech, Kerry said everyone and every country must take responsibility for the problem and act immediately. “We simply don’t have time to let a few loud interest groups hijack the climate conversation,” he said, referring to what he called “big companies” that “don’t want to change and spend a lot of money” to act to reduce the risks.

State senator plans to introduce bill by early March • FUNDING Continued from page A1 a Bunker Hill Democrat who co-chaired the committee. Manar says the issue of equity in school funding must be addressed before a conversation about whether schools are adequately funded. During lean times, wealthier districts with more property tax revenue have an advantage over poorer districts and can more easily offset cuts in state aid. Manar said he plans to introduce legislation based on the bipartisan proposal by March. Still, broad support in the Legislature could be hard to come by in an election year, said Steve Brown, spokesman for House Speaker Michael

Madigan, a Chicago Democrat who hasn’t yet committed to support the plan. “It’s an ongoing conversation,” Brown said. “But I’m not sure that anybody’s developed an alternative that would win majority approval and bipartisan support.” Lawmakers – particularly in moderate, property-rich districts – could look to appease taxpayers reluctant to give up the current system as they wage re-election battles. “Realistically, I think we’re going to end up waiting,” Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno of Lemont said. As it stands now, Illinois schools receive state money in a variety of ways. General state aid, the money used to offset the basic cost of educating students, is based on a for-

mula that factors in poverty levels. This year, 41 percent of the $6.7 billion the state spent on preschool through 12th grade education was on general state aid. Districts also receive grants to use on programs like special education, transportation and vocational training, which don’t factor in poverty. Districts must submit expense claims for those programs and are reimbursed based on the number of students they serve. The exception is Chicago, which receives a percentage of all state education dollars to spend at its own discretion. As a result, critics charge, it has received hundreds of millions more than if it were held to the same standard as other districts.

The state’s school funding formula hasn’t changed since the late 1990s but over time increases to spending on specialized programs have outpaced increases to general state aid, resulting in the poorest districts often hurting the most. Meanwhile, an increasing deficit and a growing unfunded pension liability diverted money from schools and social services, further exacerbating problems. The State Board of Education says that schools have endured more than $800 million in cuts since 2009. It could get worse if lawmakers allow the temporary state income tax increase to expire as scheduled in January, which would mean the loss of an estimated $1.5 billion in revenue.

take precautions • FLOODING Continued from page A1 and basements could be susceptible [to flooding] that normally wouldn’t be in a spring rain.” There are steps that residents can take to lower the risk of flood damage, said Abigail Wilgreen, engineering services manager for the city. City officials encouraged residents to test sump pumps and place a backup sump pump near the primary one in case it fails. Gutters and downspouts also should be cleared of ice and snow and the pipes should face away from the home.

Residents also can clear street drains and sewer grates of snow and ice if they see it could be blocked. It is important to clear away snow on the ground near the house to create a drainage path around and away from the home, Wilgreen said. While areas such as North Shore Drive and Edgebrook Drive are commonly dealing with flood issues, Wilgreen said all residents should take proper precautions as the snow adds an unknown variable. “It’s going to completely depend on where the snow is and how snow is piled,” she said. “An area that has never flooded could flood. Each person’s home is different.”

Blind in one eye and with a limp, Schulz is hoping for a “senior-to-senior” adoption where an older person adopts an older pet. Cooing to each dog, Emily Huetson transferred five of the dogs, including P.J. and May, to the On Angels’ Wings van. Both animals were set to be euthanized unless another shelter agreed to take them, said Huetson, the animal welfare director for On Angels’ Wings. She started the shelter with her mother, Jeannette Schulz, in early 2007. “They literally don’t have the space,” Huetson said. “They’ll even euthanize pregnant moms, pregnant mom dogs and pregnant mom cats, just due to space, and if nobody claims them in a certain amount of time, they’re gone. It’s really sad.” Volunteers at the shelters will send out emails to other shelters, letting them know the details of the animals’ situations, and the area shelters will select the animals they think they can adopt out, she said. About 60 percent of the cats and dogs On Angels’ Wings adopts out come to McHenry County through these transports, Schulz said, adding that there aren’t as many pets being taken to shelters or abandoned in McHenry County as in other parts of the country,

PARKINSON’S DOUBLE-VISION SYMPTON

H. Rick Bamman – hbamman@shawmedia.com

Heart for Animals volunteer Linda Mavrinac of Huntley walks to her car after receiving a rescued cat. Teams of volunteers take weekly trips to bring dogs and cats from kill shelters downstate and in other states to McHenry County. not enough to cover the demand for pets. On Angels’ Wings wasn’t the only shelter picking up dogs that cold Thursday afternoon. Between that van and another that makes the weekly trip on the same days, 60 to 100 dogs, cats, rabbits and even once a opossum are ferried up to McHenry County from mostly southern Illinois, said the van’s driver, Dave Novak. “Sometimes it will be a mom and her kittens or a load of puppies,” Huetson said. “You just never know. There’s just such a need in the south,

and we’re happy to have a transport that makes it up here. We love it.” Novak, a Lyons resident, is one of a series of drivers who can bring the animals from as far as Texas, Arkansas, Missouri, Georgia and Tennessee, Schulz said. He starts his day at about 7 a.m. and gets home about 12 hours later after making stops in Tinley Park, Joliet and Huntley. The drives can get noisy, but most of the animals calm down once the van gets moving, he said. They’ll start to get noisy again when they need to need to go to the bathroom.

Novak started running transports about a year and a half ago, he said. He had been fostering animals at the time, and another driver asked if he would take over. “It’s to save the animals,” he said. “My opinion is there are no bad animals, there are bad people. That’s pretty much it. That’s really why I bring them up. That’s why I volunteer my time to do this.” Besides donating their time, many drivers cover the transportation costs, including gas, Schulz said. Some volunteer pilots also run transports.

While it is widely understood that patients with Parkinson’s disease often experience visual problems such as blurred vision, photophobia (light sensitivity), and difficulty maintaining their gaze, fewer realize that double vision (diplopia) may also be a problem. This is an important matter in light of the fact that 14 percent of Parkinson’s patients seen in routine practice report double vision. Much of what doctors know about Parkinson’s-related diplopia remains understudied. Fortunately, new research brings further understanding, beginning with the notion that double vision among Parkinson’s patients was related to non-motor factors such as nighttime restlessness and excessive daytime sleepiness. Regular checkups with the eye doctor may help clear up concerns over double vision as well as pinpoint causes. P.S. Double vision related to Parkinson’s disease may correlate with the patient’s age, with older patients being more susceptible. Some people with Parkinson’s disease notice that as the disease progresses their vision loses sharpness or becomes blurred and they may have trouble with dry eyes.

Invest in early kids education Early education is an investment in the future, an investment that has been shown to reap dividends by study after study. It’s an investment that has been lacking in recent years in the state of Illinois. Preschools are an important piece of the early education puzzle, and yet the state cut preschool funding by $80 million between 2009 and 2013. It appears Gov. Pat Quinn wants to reverse that trend. The governor announced a “birth to 5” initiative during his State of the State address. His plan would invest in quality preschool, prenatal care and support services for parents. This is an important state, local and national issue. Studies have shown that the achievement gap between low-income or low-socioeconomicstatus children and their peers begins as early as nine months. Gaps in school readiness widen because children are less likely to be read to by their parents. Those children hear 30 million fewer words by age 3 than more well-off children. It’s difficult for disadvantaged children to identify, read and understand words they’ve never heard. It’s not that their parents don’t want to help their kids – they can’t. They don’t have the education and literacy skills to improve their own lives, let alone their children’s. A good education can level the playing field for a disadvantaged child and help that child escape poverty. Students who attend preschool are less likely to fall behind as they continue in school and are more likely to complete their education, graduate from high school and become productive members of society. The average dropout earns about $10,000 less a year than a high school graduate, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Dropouts are more than twice as likely as college graduates to live in poverty, according to the Department of Education. Early childhood education programs can help shape the future of the community if those programs get the resources they need. The (Freeport) Journal-Standard

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Stop kidding To the Editor: Bad cigarette nicotine, good marijuana THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) – that’s our liberal media. When Colorado started the year with legal sales of marijuana for recreational purposes, TV stations across the country featured chuckling coverage of long lines outside state-licensed pot shops. Pot is always good for a giggle, and that makes it hard to take marijuana seriously. Legalizing marijuana isn’t just amusing. It’s increasingly popular with legislators and the public. There’s no benefit to marijuana. It’s simply people wanting freedom to be stoned. That’s all it is, yet marijuana is far from safe, despite

the widespread effort to make it seem nonthreatening. Pot damages the heart and lungs, increases the incidence of anxiety, depression and schizophrenia, and it can trigger acute psychotic episodes. Many adults appear to be able to use marijuana with relatively little harm, but the same cannot be said of teenagers. Teenagers are vulnerable to making rash and risky choices because their brains aren’t fully developed. The part of the brain that censors dumb or dangerous behavior is last to come on line (generally not before the mid-20s). Meanwhile, the brain’s pleasure-seeking structures are up and running by puberty. Linking teenager pleasure seeking and risk taking to marijuana’s

When death row speeds up without caution The state of Texas should be far from commended for its ample dedication to continuing the death penalty. But at least the care Texas courts take when listening to death penalty appeals is technically what used to be the American way: “Texas, the nation’s most active death penalty state, generally waits until all appeals are exhausted before carrying out executions” (“Lawyers: Mo. Moving Too Quickly on Executions,” The Associated Press, Jan. 31). But, as I reported last week, citing a New York Times editorial, certain states’ disregard of death row inmates’ final last-minute appeals is becoming more common. I wrote about Herbert Smulls, who was executed in Missouri on Jan. 29 for the 1991 murder of a jewelry store owner. His lawyers had made appeals to the U.S. Supreme Court for a stay of execution, claiming Smulls’ Eighth and 14th Amendment rights had been denied. Their most urgent appeal was sent just before 10 p.m. on the night of Smulls’ planned execution. However, as reported by numerous outlets, Smulls’ departure from this planet began at 10:11 p.m. He was pronounced dead at 10:20 p.m. But, according to the AP, one of Smulls’ lawyers, Joseph Luby, “received an email at 10:30 p.m. from the Supreme Court, saying the stay application was denied at 10:24 p.m. – four minutes after Smulls was pronounced dead.” That doubly obliterated Smulls without a hearing. It may interest you, the reader, to know that “Smulls, who was black, was convicted by an all-white jury.” Additionally, a key element of Smulls’ appeals was the nature of the drugs Missouri finally used to kill him. As the AP, the Times and other media have reported, Missouri and certain other states hide the identities of certain execution drugs and the compounding pharmacies supplying them. For example, the AP noted in its report on Smulls’ passing that “two weeks ago,

8THE FIRST AMENDMENT

VIEWS Nat Hentoff Ohio inmate Dennis McGuire took 26 minutes to die by injection, gasping repeatedly as he lay on a gurney with his mouth opening and closing. And on Jan. 9, Oklahoma inmate Michael Lee Wilson’s final words were, ‘I feel my whole body burning.’” It also might interest official executioners in Iran, North Korea, China and other expeditious nations that, according to the AP, the attorneys for Smulls expressed concern “that it was the third straight case in which Missouri has moved ahead with an execution while the case was still in court.” I’d appreciate hearing from anyone in another state who is keeping count of death row inmates being extinguished, while their cases are still on appeal under our once glorified system of justice. Some state legislators are now working to create investigative procedures into precisely what poisons are ending the lives of these prisoners. I would very much like to hear from them. I’d also like to hear from recently awakened citizens who can inform me whether any candidates in local, state or federal elections are breaking through official silence on these shrouded homicides. Also, what of the ministers, priests and rabbis living in these states that are speeding up executions? I also am increasingly curious about the quality of legal representation throughout the nation, and how well attorneys are handling the cases of their clients on death row. How many of these prisoners have lawyers with the know-how and persistence of Herbert Smulls’ attorneys? Moreover – an essential question – how many inmates now waiting on death row in states that hide their execution methods have lawyers with the capacity to be of any real use to them? In a recent issue of The Week, Andrew

Cohen reported on “the one area where America really needs more lawyers.” He began: “Mike Engle, a public defender in Nashville, stood up in a local courtroom last month and raised a troubling issue that has national resonance. “After prosecutors notified a trial judge that they were seeking the death penalty against an indigent defendant named Lorenzo Jenkins, who is accused of murdering three people, Engle asked the judge to assign a private attorney to handle the case on behalf of the defendant.” According to the AP, the public defender expressed his concerns to the judge thusly: “Our office, quite frankly, lacks the resources to defend a death penalty case.” The Week’s Cohen continued: “This surely is not what the United States Supreme Court had in mind in 1963 when it first recognized a constitutional right to counsel in Gideon v. Wainwright. “What the justices did not do in Gideon, and what has haunted the court system ever since, is to require states to enforce the right to counsel through policies and programs (and most of all, funding) that ensures adequate representation in all criminal cases.” And dig this deeply shameful truth about our system of justice: “The result has been catastrophic for millions of Americans who cannot afford their own attorney. There are no precise, recent figures telling us how many indigent defendants need lawyers each year – but in 2007 the figure was at least six million people.” Furthermore, Cohen reported in The Week, “as the Supreme Court has gotten more conservative since Gideon, it has consistently refused to force state legislators to adequately fund defense work or to overturn convictions even where criminal defendants received patently ineffective assistance from overworked public defenders. “As a matter of law, this must change.” • Nat Hentoff is a nationally renowned authority on the First Amendment and the Bill of Rights.

CL South’s Mickow closes in on history By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO mmontemurro@shawmedia.com Crystal Lake South senior forward Sara Mickow never intended to play basketball in high school. Her plans changed when she was convinced by friend and current teammate Rachel Rasmussen to sign up their freshman year. Four years later, as Mickow’s career comes to a close, she is set to leave South as one of the best players to wear the green and gold. Mickow needs only three points in South’s playoff opener Wednesday in the Class 4A Cary-Grove Regional semifinals to join an elusive club: 1,000 career points and 1,000 career rebounds. She would be the area’s first player to achieve both milestones since McHenry’s Ashley Conway in 2011. “I got suckered into it, and ever since then it’s been a crazy ride,” Mickow said with a smile. Mickow’s looming milestone is made more impressive by the fact she has reached it in only three varsity seasons. “It’s pretty crazy because I don’t really pay attention to the numbers or the stats, so when I hear it, it’s like, ‘Oh my gosh,’ ” Mickow said. Mickow never played travel basketball or participated in AAU before arriving at South. Before high school she played basketball only in middle school. So how did Mickow become one of the area’s best players? She credited her teammates and South coach Kyle McCaughn, who always has pushed her to be better, which Mickow appreciates. “In my 20 years of coaching, I’ve never had an athlete and a basketball player like Sara and a kid who has taken every bit of grief that I’ve given her,” McCaughn said. “I don’t know if I’ve ever been fair to her because I’ve always asked for more and more and more, and I think she gives everything she has every single night.” The 5-foot-11 forward made her mark on the glass. Mickow has averaged about 11 rebounds a game during her three varsity seasons and reached

Crystal Lake South senior Sara Mickow prepares to shoot against Huntley sophomore Ali Andrews on Tuesday in Huntley. Mickow, who reached 1,000 career rebounds in the game, is three points shy of 1,000 career points. 1,000 rebounds Tuesday in the Gators’ 61-50 loss to Huntley. Despite opponents knowing they need to box her out and keep her off the glass, she still finds a way to haul in a rebound. “That’s hard work and effort,” McCaughn said of Mickow’s impressive rebounding numbers. “She has that uncanny knack for reading the basketball. She does all the things you need a rebounder to do – 1,000 rebounds in a three-year career is unheard of.” Mickow believes refusing to be timid or backing down against other players contributes to her rebounding success. “I think, honestly, I just have a good sight for the ball when it comes off the rim, and I get in the right position, jump as high as I can and get the ball, be aggressive with it,” Mickow said.

Prairie Ridge hockey players take part in curling lessons Sunday at the Crystal Ice House in Crystal Lake.

Ready, set, curl Looking for next local Olympian CRYSTAL LAKE – Rich Delisi clutched a broom in his left hand and a stone in his right hand as he launched out of his stance and aimed for a target more than 150 feet away. “Sit! Sit!” Delisi screamed toward the stone Sunday at the Crystal Ice House. “Slow down!” The stone had other ideas, zooming past the target like a teenage driver determined to speed. For Delisi, the experience was like trying to talk to a rock. “I do the same thing with my golf ball,” said Delisi, 49, of Prairie Grove. “It never listens.” Listen up, people. Let’s teach these stubborn stones a lesson. Let’s become Olympic curlers. Because McHenry County has boasted great athletes in just about any sport you can name, from baseball to football to hockey to soccer to cage fighting. Now, correct me if I’m wrong, but our Land of Long Commutes has yet to produce a champion curler. Who wants to be the first? More than two dozen people showed up Sunday to take their best shot at the sport, which

VIEWS Tom Musick started in medieval Scotland and quickly has gained popularity in 21st century America. The lobby of the rink included fliers for the program – “Learn How To Curl Like An Olympian” – which will wrap up next weekend with two more sessions. Perhaps Kyle Buresch could be our region’s first great curler. Buresch, 17, plays hockey for Prairie Ridge High School’s club team. He and his Wolves teammates took part in the curling class as a teambuilding session. Less than 10 minutes had passed before Buresch fell down, broom in hand. “The shoes aren’t high quality,” Buresch said with a grin. “It’s all the shoes’ fault.”

Clay Guida acknowledges that, over the course of 41 Ultimate Fighting Championship bouts, he has “had his bell rung” on several occasions. But the Round Lake resident and Johnsburg High School graduate isn’t willing to concede that years of absorbing blows to the head will have the same long-term effects on him and his mixed martial arts peers as other Clay Guida fighters once their careers are over. U.S. Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Harry Reid (D-Nev.) recently brought officials from boxing and MMA together in Washington to pledge support for a study looking into the impact of head injuries and brain trauma among professional fighters. Officials from the two sports have pledged $600,000 to the Cleveland Clinic’s Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health in Las Vegas. Despite the attention being given to a subject that has circulated mainly around former NFL players in recent years, Guida isn’t convinced he faces a similar fate as he gets older. A 2006 Johns Hopkins study tends to back Guida’s theory, concluding that MMA fighters face “a reduced risk of traumatic brain injury in MMA competitions when compared to other events involving striking.”

“It’s definitely something you’re cognizant of,” Guida said last week. “It’s something you try not to think about. But if you look at mixed martial arts compared to every other contact sport or hand-to-hand combat sport ... you’ll see how much more aware mixed martial artists are.” Guida is scheduled to return to the cage in April, according to Fight Sport Asia, which reported Friday that Guida will face Tatsuya Kawajiri in UFC Fight Night 39 in Abu Dhabi. Guida did not respond to a text message seeking confirmation. Despite last week’s announcement in Washington suggesting that boxers and MMA fighters may be headed down the same dangerous road that pro football players are believed to be on, Guida points instead to the differences between his sport and others. Bellator MMA founder and chief operating officer Bjorn Rebner said Friday that his company is in the process of developing new protocols to deal with head injuries for fighters such as former world champion Pat Curran, who fights out of Crysta Lake’s Curran MMA gym. “It goes without saying that MMA is a combat sport,” Rebner said in an emailed statement to the Northwest Herald. “As our sport evolves, we have an obligation to our athletes to find ways to better protect their wellbeing.”

Hayashi, 15, wins gold, silver at karate worlds Cary-Grove sophomore Kai Hayashi, 15, had a lot on the line at his first international karate competition in January. To pay for his trip to Munich, Germany, a lot of people contributed to an online fundraiser. Hayashi said he didn’t want to disappoint anyone who helped him go and trained even harder preparing for it. “I didn’t want to go there and lose in the first round,” Hayashi said. “This was a big push for me. You can’t train this hard and lose the first round.” Hayashi, who trains at Focus Martial Arts in Lake in the Hills, took home a gold and silver medal at the International Open World Karate Confederation Championships Jan. 25 and 26. He won gold in Kata in the 14- 15-yearold division. Kata, or forms, involves detailed patterns of movements. Hayashi said he prefers Kumite, or sparring, in which he won a silver, but has had more success in kata. “I like to win in kumite more,” Hayashi said. “It’s just more fun.” Kata is very exacting,

Hayashi said, and requires a lot of focused practice. “It’s really tedious,” Hayashi said. “I don’t really think about it (during competition) and I end up doing well.” Although kata and kumite are karate activities it is very difKai ficult to excel Hayashi in both.

That may be a Germany. choice he has to make in the future but not now. “You can’t be good in both, (but) we always compete in both,” Hayashi said. “You need to focus on one more than the other.” Hayashi also was competing as part of the U.S. team with other athletes from across the country, so the

pressure was there to perform well for his country. “We competed individually but we were the U.S. team,” Hayashi said. “We cheered each other on.” Hayashi also had to adjust to international rules. To prepare, he integrated international rules, one of which was the absence of headgear, into his training. “One of big things was to know the rules before we went in there,” Hayashi said. “I’ve fought without headgear before, and its not a big deal to me.” Even with the training, competing in a foreign country did take its toll. “I’m a really calm guy. Things don’t affect me, but it definitely was nerve-racking,” Hayashi said. For now, it’s back to the gym for training and a dream to be able to compete on the world stage again. “You‘ve got to train hard to do well,” Hayashi said. “You just can’t expect it just to come to you.” • Rob Smith is a sports writer for the Northwest Herald.

Senior 3 away from 1,000 points • MICKOW Continued from page B1 Longtime Dundee-Crown girls basketball coach and current South assistant coach Joe Komaromy said Mickow ranks among the best post players he has coached and pointed to her having a skill for being in the right position at the right time for rebounds. “She makes the people around her better, which is the key to a lot of good players,” Komaromy said. “She really finds a way to get inside position on rebounding. That comes from a good work ethic and being very smart. She’s one of the smartest kids inside the [paint] that I’ve been around.” Regardless of her success, Mickow does not plan to play basketball in college. Instead, she is looking forward to just

Highlight reel Some of Crystal Lake South senior Sara Mickow’s notable basketball achievements: • Averaged a double-double (at least 10 points and 10 rebounds) in each of her three varsity seasons • Needs three points to reach 1,000 points and 1,000 rebounds for her career • Ten games this season with at least 20 rebounds • Had 27 points and 22 rebounds vs. Dundee-Crown on Jan. 17 being a student at either Iowa or Michigan State and having a chance to attend games as a fan. “It’s kind of heartbreaking a little bit because I’ve been playing sports my entire life, and now that it’s finally coming to an end with organized sports I don’t know what I’m

going to do with myself,” Mickow said. “I’m happy with where I am. I can’t not be happy with 1,000 career rebounds and points.” With the Gators starting the playoffs Wednesday against the winner of Monday’s game between CaryGrove and Grant, Mickow realizes the next time she steps on the basketball court could be her last. Reflecting on her career, Mickow is content with not only her individual accomplishments but South’s team success. “I want people to say about me that I’m not only a good basketball player but a really good person, too,” Mickow said. “I want to be known for the 1,000 rebounds. I think that rebounding is a really big thing for me and want to make a legacy with that. I’m really proud of what happened this season.”

Novices find curling to be difficult • MUSICK Continued from page B1 Buresch went on to cite other factors for his fall, including the high winds (it was indoors), the steep incline of the ice (it was flat), and the bright sun (presumably in the parking lot). Wolves teammate Brett Maier stayed on his feet, making him the next logical choice for future Olympic curler. Maier slid on his left foot, extended his right arm and pushed the stone toward the bulls-eye target on the opposite side of the rink. The stone slid too far. Way, way too far. Instead of pointing the finger at faulty shoes, Maier blamed his muscles. “Too much bench press,” Maier said. Hey, we’ve all been there. Maybe it was wrong to assume that a teenage hockey player would have the skills to become an Olympic curler. Maybe one of the adults in attendance would prove to be the diamond in the rough. Steve Zoellick, a 56-year-old from Crystal Lake, certainly looked the part of a responsible adult. He wore pajama pants, which he bought for $1.99 at Savers, to go along with a winter hat that featured long strings and the face of some sort of wide-eyed, sugar-crazed animal. “The invitation said, ‘Ugly Pants Optional,” Zoellick said with a shrug. “I figured I don’t know how good I’ll be at curling, so I might as well look goofy.”

NBA ALL-STAR GAME: EAST 163, WEST 155

Records slammed East wins highest-scoring All-Star game By BRIAN MAHONEY The Associated Press NEW ORLEANS – The Eastern Conference finally stopped Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin – then stopped its losing streak at the NBA All-Star game. Kyrie Irving had 31 points and 14 assists and was voted the game’s MVP, Carmelo Anthony made a record eight 3-pointers and scored 30 points, and the East rallied for a 163-155 victory over the West on Sunday night in the highest-scoring All-Star game. “It’s a great honor,” Irving said. “We had a few MVPs. Everyone out here today is an MVP.” Durant and Griffin each finished with 38 points, four shy of Wilt Chamberlain’s All-Star game record. But the East scored the final 10 points

to pull out a game it trailed by 18. “We wanted it,” LeBron James said. “I’ve been a part of the last three and in defeat.” Irving scored 15 points in the fourth quarter as the East ended a three-game losing streak. James had 22 points, seven rebounds and seven assists. Bulls center Joakim Noah had eight points and five rebounds off the East bench. “The superstars of our league were just telling us to compete on every play,” Irving said. “Trying to play as much defense as possible. You know, sticking to our game plan. We had a game plan going in and we executed.” The 318 points broke the record of 303 set in 1987. Griffin shot 19 of 23, while Durant finished with 10 rebounds and six assists.

But the West was shut out after Durant’s 3-pointer gave it a 155-153 lead with 1:59 left. Indiana’s Paul George made three free throws, Anthony nailed his final 3-pointer, and James scored to make it 161155. George closed it out with two more free throws and finished with 18 points. The game that usually doesn’t get tight until the final minutes was close throughout the fourth quarter, neither team leading by more than four until the final minute. Chris Paul had 11 points and 13 assists, and first-time All-Star Stephen Curry had 12 points and 11 assists for the West. But the best point guard on the floor was Irving, who shot 14 of 17 and helped the East ring up 87 points in the second half after it surrendered a record 89 in the first.

GOLF ROUNDUP

Watson ends winless drought The ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES – Bubba Watson wasn’t about to let another chance get away. Two weeks after Watson made a pair of late bogeys in the Phoenix Open, he delivered the best closing round at Riviera in about three decades. Watson played the final 39 holes without a bogey and shot a 7-under-par 64 on Sunday to win the Northern Trust Open. It was his first victory in 22 months and 41 tournaments worldwide dating to the 2012

Masters. Watson wound up with a two-shot victory over Dustin Johnson, who closed with a 66 for the second straight week and got the same result. Watson made a 15-foot birdie putt on the 18th to cap the best closing round in this tournament since Doug Tewell shot a 63 in 1986. Even sweeter was going up the steps toward the famous clubhouse to see his 2-year-old son, Caleb, whom Watson adopted just before his Masters victory. Watson finished at 15-under 269.

Women’s Australian Open: At Melbourne, Australia’s Karrie Webb won the event for a record fifth time, shooting a 4-under 68 to beat South Africa’s Chella Choi by a stroke. The 39-year-old Webb finished at 12-under 276 at Victoria Golf Club for her 40th LPGA Tour title. The Hall of Famer also won the event in 2000, 2002, 2007 and 2008. ACE Group Classic: At Naples, Fla., Kirk Triplett won his third Champions Tour title, holing a 6-foot par putt on the final hole for a one-stroke victory.

Rich Delisi of Prairie Grove tries his hand at curling Sunday at the Crystal Ice House in Crystal Lake. Mission accomplished. Meanwhile, Delisi continued to talk to inanimate objects that refused to slow down. “I’m sweating right now doing this,” Delisi said. “I can’t believe I’m actually sweating.” The instructor in charge of the motley crew was Rob Corn, a 31-year-old from Wauconda. Corn has curled competitively across the Midwest and hopes to be a part of the U.S. team for the 2018 Olympics in South Korea. Curling was gaining momentum as a sport, Corn said. It could thrive in Illinois just as it did in Minnesota and Wisconsin, he said, if more venues offered curling clubs and could expose more people to a sport that is as fun as it is challenging. “The sport is all about repetitions,” Corn said. “You’re

not going to find your balance at first. The more you do it, the better you’re going to get. “It’s not like you have to be Bo Jackson to play the game. You can be a normal person.” Corn’s message proved true. By the end of the session, fewer people were falling over and more were hitting their targets. Sean Van Damme pumped his arms as his shot inched to a stop inside of the circle. A small group of people watching from the bench cheered for the Prairie Ridge senior, and an impromptu chant broke out for a few seconds. “U-S-A! U-S-A!” Maybe there’s hope, after all. • Northwest Herald sports columnist Tom Musick can be reached at tmusick@shawmedia.com and on Twitter @ tcmusick.

While boxers take repeated blows to the head during their fight careers, Guida maintains UFC fighters take onetenth of the punches that boxers do and, therefore, suffer less damage over the years. He also points to the number of deaths among former boxers as evidence that those fighters are at greater risk than MMA fighters. Guida insists that his sport, as a whole, is “more protected” and is watched over with greater attention by UFC officials, making the sport “that much safer” in his mind. Others disagree. As part of a six-month investigation into UFC fighting done by the Newark (N.J.) Star-Ledger last year, Dr. Charles Bernick, a neurologist at the Ruvo Center for Brain Health, told the paper that although the number of blows MMA fighters take may not be as great compared to their boxing brethren, they still remain at risk. “No matter how you’re getting hit, you’re going to have damage,” said Bernick, the principal investigator of a study focused on examining the brains of boxers and

MMA fighters. “I don’t think MMA people are immune to it. Whether you look at them separately or together (with boxers), you still get these findings.” Guida remains unconvinced. He credits UFC officials for taking care of their fighters, and referees for making sure that combatants aren’t taking too much damage during bouts. Guida said it’s not justified to compare fighters to NFL players, who play a game that is “nothing but car collisions over and over and again.” Rebner also points to differences between MMA and boxing, saying that referees in his sport are more likely to stop a fight before a fighter takes too much physical abuse. “MMA is a much different sport that is separated by the disciplines of jiu jitsu and wrestling, kickboxing and Muay Thai,” he said. “These guys are able to switch it up, and if you do get knocked out, it’s immediate. They’re not taking numerous beatings like boxers do the head. “It’s a very different dynamic.” Guida has lost three of his past four fights, including his most recent fight in August

against Chad Mendes when Guida suffered his first technical knockout loss of his career. There have been times, Guida admits, when he has “had his bell rung” but not to the point where he fears for his long-term health. Guida said he has never reached a point during a fight when he didn’t know where he was or had to rethink things. Instead, he characterizes those instances as ones when he loses track of time briefly before things go back to normal. Despite not agreeing with the findings of medical professionals, however, Guida welcomes any study that investigates the risks of fighting – a sport where he believes his future remains despite his recent string of losses in the cage. “It’s all about the longevity of the athletes, and it’s about the safety of the athletes for their families and their well-being and just growing as a human,” Guida said. “I think about [the risks], but boxers are in a tougher spot than we are just from taking blows to the head over and over again. “So I definitely feel a lot more confident about my life after fighting.”

CUBS SPRING TRAINING

Career at crossroads for outfielder Jackson By GORDON WITTENMYER gwittenmyer@suntimes.com MESA, Ariz. – Outfielder Brett Jackson showed up at spring training Sunday, the same day Kris Bryant did. But that might be where the similarities end for the two Cubs prospects these days. Bryant, the Cubs’ first-round draft pick in June, is the flavor-of-the-month prospect in the Cubs’ big plans for their next competitive core – which should sound familiar to Jackson. Jackson, 25, was that guy for the Cubs once, a first-rounder ranked among the top prospects in baseball until a strikeout-filled 2012 that included a rough major-league debut, followed by a 2013 season he says “just kind of fell apart.” For all the talk of franchise-building through the farm system and homegrown cores, Jackson is on the outside looking in as he opens a crossroads 2014 season he expects to be about better health and

better results by moving away from some of the mechanics changes he was asked to make the last two years. “I feel back to being myself,” said Jackson, who wound up back at Class AA during a 2013 season hampered by shoulder, ankle and toe injuries. “I feel rejuvenated. I’ve never felt this good coming into spring training. ... “Last year was a culmination of injury and just pure struggle baseball-wise. ... It was one of those snowball-effect years. It was a huge struggle and a huge challenge for me to overcome. I’m obviously not excited in the way it turned out, but I think those are the types of years that propel you forward.” Last month during the Cubs Convention, team president Theo Epstein addressed the decision to detour from usual check-all-boxes policy with prospects and promote Jackson (and another first-rounder, Josh Vitters), in 2012 before they were ready. “We were looking to make a very spe-

Boggs has seen highs, lows

Team Carone scholarships available to C-G students

By DARYL VAN SCHOUWEN dvanschouwen@suntimes.com GLENDALE, Ariz. – Mitchell Boggs is here with a thankful heart. He knows the thrill of pitching in a World Series and for Team USA in the World Baseball Classic. He knows the satisfaction of pitching with nice run of sustained success in the big leagues. Boggs also knows the depths of failure, which he experienced shortly after being so good. In a new uniform, and a new league, Boggs has new life with the White Sox. “I’m thankful and excited for the opportunity,’’ said Boggs, who turned 30 on the first day of camp for pitchers and catchers Saturday. Because of his bad season in 2013, in which Boggs was traded from the Cardinals to the Rockies and pitched for two minor league teams, the

Sox were able to sign him to a low-risk, one-year, $1.1 million contract. The deal is contingent on Boggs making the 25man roster, and the Sox would have control over him through next season. What’s done is done. Boggs said last season, in which he logged only 231/3 major league innings with an 8.10 ERA, was a lot of things. All of them bad. “It was disappointing, frustrating, embarrassing. All of that,’’ he said. “It just wasn’t a good year.’’ Add humbling to the list of adjectives for 2013. Over his first four seasons in St. Louis, his ERA had dropped each year. In 2012, his last full season with the Cardinals, a 2.21 ERA accompanied career bests of 78 appearances, 73 1/3 innings, 58 strikeouts and a 1.08 WHIP. “Here’saguyforthreeyears running or so was one of the top setup men in the National

League,’’ Sox general manager Rick Hahn said. “The fact that he was out there and available to come to camp to fight for a spot on the team has some appeal. We’ve done all right over the years bringing in guys with decent pitching upsides and having them work with [pitching coach Don Cooper and the training staff] and get them back on track. We’re optimistic Boggs will be another one.’’ Boggs wasted no time getting back to work this offseason. “I started my program a little earlier because I knew I needed to make sure the little details that are really important are where they need to be,’’ he said. “I feel like I’m throwing the ball really, really well now and look forward to showing that here early in camp. “My expectations are as high as they’ve ever been.’’

Part of the thinking, he said, was the strikeout rate was so high already that it wouldn’t hurt to get a closer look at his swing while evaluating him in the big leagues. “Sometimes it boosts a kid with ability,” Sveum said, agreeing that, “yes, in hindsight, it wasn’t a good idea.” Jackson said he’s not looking back at all that went wrong – including 59 strikeouts in 120 at-bats – during that .175 debut and the season that followed. Instead, he looks for the “silver lining” and ignores the swing change that failed while taking a positive outlook into a new spring under a new manager and coaching staff.

Red Sox pitcher Dempster says he won’t play in 2014 FORT MYERS, Fla. – Boston Red Sox right-hander Ryan Dempster plans to take this season off, a decision that surprised teammates and will cost the 16-year veteran $13.25 million in salary.

Dempster said Sunday he is stepping away for physical reasons and to spend more time with his family. But he left a slight opening to play in 2015. Dempster, whose contract expires after this season, finished his only year with the Red Sox with an 8-9 record and a 4.57 ERA and didn’t get a start during their postseason run to a World Series title.

Government’s Massive $100M Brain Research Initiative Targets Memory Loss Drug-free memory discovery yields ‘shocking’results in clinical trial; restores brainpower equal to those up to 15 years younger, all within 30 days! For readers who fret about their less-than-perfect memory, or worry about steadily worsening mental powers, your life is about to change. Thanks to the Government’s massive $100 million B.R.A.I.N. initiative, millions of frustrated Americans who not only lose their car keys, but also forget where they have parked may soon have real, lasting relief. Science Attacks Memory Loss The multi-year program called Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies, or BRAIN, will as part of its initiative, target the symptoms of premature mental decline, including poor memory, the inability to maintain focus and concentration, mental fatigue, and brain fog. It has been called the “next great American project,” drawing comparisons to the wildly successful uss ex}idxŠ ~xehb}f… xixdxˆdxb}„ the Human Genome Project. Over an estimated ten-year period, Brain Research scientists will ‘map’ the human brain in an unprecedented quest to unravel its mysteries. What’s the Catch? What President Obama and ˆ~jxixedfˆdxhi h|Šxˆve |ˆxv}~ dh d}vv Americans is that, for many, they don’t have to spend $100 million or wait ten-plus years to address their foggy, forgetful mind. In fact, evidence of a genuine, clinically tested, real, memory pill is here, now. Real Memory Pill Exists! ` lpƒ‡ˆe}~ f}e}ˆfz Šfj„ _fˆxi Research Labs, has developed and conducted successful human testing on a genuine memory pill. Over a period of a few weeks in a landmark, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial, published in a peer-reviewed journal, scientists observed the formula helping older brains function more youthfully.

In many cases, the formula allowed users to match the memory recall speed and brainpower of those up to 15 years younger, all within a 30-day time period any more. It’s no secret anymore. The lp qˆd}id ˆi~ nfˆ~}jˆfw r|Š} has granted the drug-free natural formula a United States patent. Over the years, the sophisticated three-part formulation has gained the trust of medical doctors, a top clinical pharmacist, and is even a recommended component in an updated version of a legendary Medicare-reimbursed brain health protocol.

‘Pharmacist of the Year,’Dr. Gene Steiner, recommends a patented, natural memory compound. Preventive Gerontologist, Dr. Arnold Bresky, the man responsible for the Medicare-reimbursed brain tune-up protocol recommends this prescription-free memory compound as an integral part of his new Four Pillars of Brain Health program. With more than 45 years behind a pharmacist’s counter, and 25 years in a radio show booth, if Dr. Gene Steiner, “America’s Pharmacist,” had a nickel for every time someone asked, “Do you have anything that can improve my memory,” he would be a rich man today. A Crystal-Clear Memory It’s a question he’s heard many times. “This natural memory pill is to an aging, sluggish brain, what a breath of fresh air is to your lungs,” he says. Before prescribing the pill to gˆdx}ide„ ‹f‚ pd}xi}f ~}x~}~ dh Šfed try it himself.

“Within a few days, I can tell you without reservation that my memory became crystal clear,” he says. “I had such marvelous results that I not only started recommending it to my customers, I even shared it with other physicians!” A Pharmacy Best-Seller “It became the best-selling brain health product in my pharmacy and customers were returning to thank me for introducing them to it.” “It felt great to see so many people whose lives were enriched by taking a simple, natural formula.” “With this simple, drug-free |hfjcvˆ„ †} Šiˆvv… zˆb} ehj}dzxi{ that we can recommend that is safe and effective. And you don’t need a prescription either!” Recently, at 73 years of age, Dr. Steiner relocated to another state and was apprehensive about taking the state board of pharmacy jurisprudence examination, a daunting examination that tests a candidate’s mastery of pharmacy law. “I began taking the natural memory compound for two weeks prior to the test, and I passed †xdz ‰…xi{ hvhfekm onz} f}ˆvv I personally experienced was fantastic,” says Steiner. “It’sauniqueprocess,”headds,“that pumps the brain full of energizing oxygen, helping improve blood circulation to the brain, while helping to boost key neurotransmitters in the brain responsible for cognitive functioning.” Alternative medicine pioneer, and retired medical school professor, Dr. Robert Heller, personally uses and recommends the formula. Perks Up Tired, Sluggish Brains “It’s not a drug,” smiles Dr. Heller, “it’s a nutritional supplement that can help a foggy, sluggish brain become sharper, quicker, and healthier.” Head and neck surgeon and psychologist, Paul Nemiroff, PhD, MD, FACS, agrees,

On April 11, 2013, President Barack Obama announced a ten-year, $100 million brain research project. “I was having concentration problems and difficulty remembering things. After only one week, I felt mentally energized

the Daytona 500 front row. “Obviously, without that thing under the hood, we wouldn’t be where we are,” said Truex, who won the Daytona 500 pole in 2009 with an ECR engine when he drove for Earnhardt Ganassi Racing. The rest of the field is set Thursday through a pair of qualifying races, but Childress and the ECR engines are strong: They had five cars in the top 12 on Sunday. Childress knew he had a shot at the pole, if not with Dillon then from another one of his four Richard Childress Racing entries. All were fast in January testing, and again in two Saturday practice sessions. But it was Hendrick Motorsports driver Dale Earnhardt Jr., the first driver to make his qualifying attempt, who set the pace early and held down the provisional pole for most of the session. RCR drivers Brian Scott and Paul Menard failed to bump Earnhardt, and it was surprisingly Ford driver Greg Biffle who finally did it as the 33rd driver to take his turn. Ryan Newman then took his shot for RCR and missed, and Dillon was the next driver out. He shot to the top of the board and his grandfather pumped his fist in celebration. He then nervously watched as the final 10 drivers made their runs, and gave another fist-pump in celebration. “We wanted to come down here and put on a good show with the 3, and to have another ECR engine with Furniture Row on the front row, we couldn’t be more proud,” Childress said. So could he finally relax? “The pressure is always on when you’ve got grandsons racing for you,” said Childress, who thanked all the sponsors who “believed in this young kid, who took a chance on him.”

By JENNA FRYER DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – With the famed No. 3 on his car and memories of the late Dale Earnhardt fresh in his mind, Austin Dillon took the fabled number out of hibernation and straight to the top at Daytona. Dillon reawakened the days of The Intimidator and proved he can handle the spotlight thrust on his ride in the 3, winning the pole Sunday for the season-opening Daytona 500. He took the top spot with a lap at 196.019 mph in NASCAR’s season opener in a car Richard Childress has refused to field at NASCAR’s top level since Earnhardt’s fatal accident on the last lap of the 2001 race. But with his 23-year-old grandson ready to move to the Sprint Cup Series, Childress allowed Dillon to use the number widely associated with the seven-time champion. Earnhardt won 67 races, six championships and the 1998 Daytona 500 driving the No. 3. Dillon was a kid when he posed for a picture with Earnhardt in Victory Lane after his breakthough 1998 win. He’ll have many more memories from this milestone, like the congratulatory handshake he received from Richard Petty when qualifying ended. NASCAR’s family roots run deep, so Childress never had to leave the family tree to find the right driver for the number. Dillon has been using it in NASCAR national competition since 2009, when he made his Truck Series debut in the No. 3. He won the Truck championship in 2011 driving the No. 3 for Richard Childress Racing, and the Nationwide title last season in the same number.

Daytona 500 pole winner Austin Dillon kneels by his car Sunday after his qualifying run at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla. So Childress knew – he always knew and has insisted that Earnhardt gave his blessing long before his death – that Dillon could use the number if he ever made it to Cup. Dillon doesn’t take the responsibility lightly. “Everybody wants to see this number perform well, and that’s what my goals are,” Dillon said. “I love getting in that race car and driving it. I think once we get through some of these races here at the beginning of the year, everything will sink in and I’ll get comfortable and be able to have some fun.” It’s the fourth time the No. 3 has won the pole for the Daytona 500. Buddy Baker did it in 1969, Ricky Rudd in 1983 and Earnhardt in 1996. Martin Truex Jr., driving a Chevrolet for Furniture Row Racing, qualified second with a lap at 195.852 mph. Truex’s engine is built by Earnhardt-Childress Racing, giving the company a sweep of

WOMEN’S SNOWBOARD CROSS

OLYMPIC GLANCE

More disappointment for Jacobellis

SUNDAY’S HIGHLIGHTS

American star falls again; wait for gold goes on

FOR DUTCH, SWEEP 16 The Dutch got their third sweep in speedskating – albeit a gold by Jorien ter Mors over favorite Ireen Wust in the women’s 1,500. Lottevan Beek got the bronze. The Dutch have now won 16 speedskating medals in Sochi, breaking the record haul of 13 by East Germany at the 1988 Calgary Olympics. The win by ter Mors sets her up for a shot at becoming the first skater to win medials in both long and short track.

By RICK MAESE The Washington Post KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia – The race course measures nearly 4,000 snowy feet of dips, bumps and jumps, but for the most recognizable snowboarder in the field, it actually spans years. From up top, she can peer beyond the finish line and realize there’s no end in sight. When Lindsey Jacobellis was 20 years old, she made a mistake. For the past eight years, she has ridden with the weight of that youthful indiscretion. Every race has been viewed by mainstream audience through the prism of that one day in Turin when an unnecessary trick cost her an Olympic gold medal. “People don’t understand how much pressure is put on her,” said snowboarder Faye Gulini, her American teammate. “It breaks my heart because I think it takes the fun out of it for her, just for this event. She loves the sport; she’s a phenomenal snowboarder. But it’s in her head, you know.” These Sochi Games were another shot at redemption, and with her unmatched style and grace on the board, Jacobellis was cruising through the snowboard cross field Sunday. She held a big lead in her semifinal race, but again the 28-year-old rider took a big spill, spoiling yet another chance at that elusive gold medal. It was a crushing disappointment for a rider who has won on every stage except this one. Jacobellis, competing in her third Winter Games, was matter-of-fact about it, saying later that “there’s worse things in life than not winning.” “Of course, it’s very unfortunate that this didn’t work out for me. . . . You can take it in

SOCIAL MEDIA

Sponsors compose some tweets for athletes By JOHN LEICESTER The Associated Press SOCHI, Russia – Between photos and insights about their Olympic experience, some Olympians are turning over their social media accounts to sponsors, agreeing to quotas of postings on Twitter and Facebook and letting other people send commercial messages in their name. The agents for U.S. figure skaters Ashley Wagner and Gracie Gold both say sponsors draft some of their tweets, plugging their brands. “This is the first Olympics where I actually have a social media calendar, where an athlete has to tweet or mention something on a given day,” Gold’s agent, Yuki Saegusa, said in an interview. “We get a list of tweets or social media things that need to be posted and then we approve them for her,” said Saegusa, senior vice president for Olympic clients at sports management giant IMG. Although they “encourage” Gold to post the pre-packaged commercial tweets to her 65,000 followers herself, sometimes others do it for her. “We want it to be from her point of view, and from her mouth and from her fingers. So we try to get her to do them – mostly,” Saegusa said. “We’re in a very new age now where a lot of advertising, or PR, or promotions, is social media. That’s becoming a very important aspect of marketing.”

The ASSOCIATED PRESS

NORWAY IS SUPER – GEE Kjetil Jansrud won the fourth straight Olympic super-G gold medal for Norway, finishing the choppy course in 1:18.14, with American skier Andrew Weibrecht 0.30 seconds behind. Bode Miller, at age 36, became the oldest Alpine skier to win a medal when he and Jan Hudec of Canada tied for bronze. It was Miller’s sixth Olympic medal, moving the American two behind all-time Alpine leader Kjetil Andre Aamodt.

BEST CZECH FINISH

Lindsey Jacobellis of the United States crashes while leading her Olympic snowboard cross semifinal as Canada’s Dominique Maltais tries to avoid her Sunday in Krasnaya Polyana, Russia. stride,” she said. “A lot of people can say what they want, put as many opinions out there . . . that’s fine. It’s not really going to affect how I view myself and how I look at my past résumé.” Jacobellis is the most successful female snowboard cross rider the young sport has seen. Despite her Olympic slip-ups, she has won the world championship three times and just last month claimed her eighth gold medal at the Winter X Games. But for more casual observers, that one second-place finish from the 2006 Olympics – after falling, she recovered and won a silver medal – is remembered more than any of her numerous victories. She carries that with her always. “I know that there’s motivating factors,” said her friend Nate Holland, a fellow snowboard cross racer. “There’s a lot of pressure on her to do well. ... And it’s easy to take – if she doesn’t do well – to take a potshot at her and try to knock her down a little bit. As far as do I think that’s a motivating factor? Yeah, bracing not to fail is always a motivating factor when you’re expected to win.”

8OLYMPIC BRIEF Costas ready to return SOCHI, Russia – NBC’s Bob Costas plans to make his return to NBC on Monday after being off the air for a week with an eye infection. NBC said Sunday that “Today” host Matt Lauer will sub for Costas one last time on NBC’s Sunday night telecast, and that Costas is preparing for his return in prime-time Monday. The longtime Olympics host started duty in Sochi with one eye reddened from an infection that he hoped would clear up quickly. Instead, it spread to his other eye. It made his vision blurry, and his red eyes were a popular topic on social media. – The Associated Press

On Sunday at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park, Jacobellis posted the second-fastest time in the qualifying round and easily won her quarterfinal heat. In the semifinal race, she was riding strong from the very start and breezed to a big lead. But about three-quarters of the way through the course, she lost her balance coming off a small bump and fell. She could only watch as the other five riders flew by. “I thought I was riding really well,” said Jacobellis, who managed to win Sunday’s “small final” consolation race to officially finish in seventh place. “It just didn’t work out for me.” Gulini, 21, took third in her semifinal heat and earned a spot in the finals. Gulini was riding in sixth place in the final race, but a late crash on the course allowed her to finish fourth. The Czech Republic’s Eva Samkova took gold, followed by Canada’s Dominique Maltais and France’s Chloe Trespeuch. But most eyes were on Jacobellis, who does so well in virtually every other competi-

tion. Despite what Gulini and Holland say, Jacobellis downplayed the internalized pressure. “I don’t think it has to do with the Olympics,” Jacobellis said. “It’s just a fluke of when things work out for me and when they don’t. I felt very calm and composed, very excited about this event because I really like the course. It just so happened to not work out. It’s hard to accept that.” This marks the second straight Olympics in which Jacobellis, 28, failed to even make the event’s finals. Even more than her previous attempts, this time the path to the medal podium appeared to be cleared for her. Norway’s Helene Olafsen, the 2009 world champ, and Canada’s Maelle Ricker, the 2010 gold medalist, both crashed early and didn’t even reach the semis. American Jackie Hernandez also had a big fall in the qualifying heat, suffering a concussion and sitting out the ensuing rounds. “On this course, it kind of seemed like just staying on your feet was important,” Gulini said.

Eva Samkova won the gold medal in women’s snowboard cross for the first podium finish in the Olympics by a Czech snowboarder. Dominique Maltais of Canada became the first multiple-medal winner in women’s snowboard cross when she finished a distant second. Chloe Trespeuch of France earned bronze. Perennial gold medal contender Lindsey Jacobellis again failed to win the title that has eluded the American at three straight Olympics.

COURSE DANGER Barely 24 hours after Russian skicross racer Maria Komissarova severely injured her spine while training on the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park, Jackie Hernandez suffered a concussion when she smacked her head after catching an edge during qualifying for snowboard cross. The 21-year-old American was treated and released, but barred from competing in the elimination rounds.

HOT; COOL; PEA SOUP More weather woes for the Sochi Games. The men’s 15-kilometer mass-start biathlon race was postponed until Monday because of fog. The race was initially delayed for an hour, but the visibility remained too poor to run the race. Martin Fourcade of France will be aiming for his third gold medal of the Sochi Olympics, while Ole Einar Bjoerndalen of Norway could win a record 13th Winter Olympic medal.

MEDALS Another speedskating sweep boosted the Netherlands, which now has 17 medals overall, five of them gold. Russia and the United States both have 16 total and four gold. Norway and Canada both have 14 in all, but the Scandinavians have the edge on golds, 5-4. Germany still has the most golds in Sochi with seven, but only 12 medals overall.

COMING MONDAY Seven medals events are on tap, including the ice dance competition featuring favorites Meryl Davis and Charlie White of the U.S., taking on Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, the Canadian defending champions.

The Czech Republic’s Eva Samkova celebrates after taking the gold medal in the snowboard cross final Sunday in Krasnaya Polyana, Russia.

Samkova’s stache SOCHI, Russia – When Eva Samkova dominated the snowboardcross final Sunday to win the gold medal, a lined mustache on her upper lip begged the question: Hipster or political statement? Turns out the thin lines in red, white and blue – the colors of the Czech flag – were about superstition and patriotism. “It’s a lucky mustache,” she said. “Today, it’s in national colors.” Samkova started wearing the lucky mustache at the world championships in 2011. – By Oskar Garcia – Twitter

Glass encasing the penalty box shatters Sunday as Austria’s Andreas Nodl checks Norway’s Jonas Holos in the second period in Sochi, Russia.

Into the boards SOCHI, Russia – Preliminary? So what. Don’t try to tell these Olympic hockey players to conserve their energy for elimination games. They’re simply not playing that way in the Sochi Games. One day after the United States beat Russia in a thriller with relatively small stakes, Austria beat Norway, 3-1, Sunday in a game that featured a glass-shattering check by Austria forward Andreas Nodl on Norway’s Jonas Holos. Nodl checked Holos on the boards near the glass along the side of the penalty box, hitting the glass at an awkward angle to break it. Replays showed glass fragments hit the ice. The game was delayed several minutes. But because the glass wasn’t on the wall of the rink, the teams resumed play while stadium workers quickly replaced the broken pane. Nodl said afterward that the game was big for his team’s confidence and a response to critics. – By Oskar Garcia

The best Tweet from the previous day from the Twitter account NBC Olympics:

Goalkeeper Jennifer Harss of Germany backs up into the net to protect her goal Sunday against Finland at Shayba Arena in Sochi, Russia.

U.S., Canada women’s hockey wait for rest of world to arrive SOCHI, Russia - Russian women’s hockey coach Mikhail Chekanov was not a happy man after Switzerland upset his team Saturday. “We wish much luck to all the journalists who will clearly have much joy criticizing us,’’ he said. This is how you know women’s hockey is making strides: It has critics! The talent gap between U.S.-Canada and the rest of the world in women’s hockey might or might not be closing – it depends on whom you ask. We’re not seeing the 11-0 laughers as often as we used to at the Winter Games. There might even come a time when people will look to women’s hockey for something other than the possibility of another U.S.-Canada brawl. Japan, which hadn’t scored an Olympic goal in 16 years – no, that’s not a misprint – scored one last week in a 2-1 loss to Russia. “This game is growing, and you have to be patient,’’ American coach Katey Stone said. “When men’s hockey started competing in the Olympics a long time ago, there was a lot of disparity. And look where they are now. It takes time.’’ The United States or Canada has won every Olympics and World Championship gold medal in women’s hockey. Sweden and Finland have been alone in a decidedly second tier. But now the Swiss are rising a bit. The Russians were, too, until their slip here knocked them out of medal contention. The Finns also are out of medal contention after losing to Sweden. In most Olympic sports, countries don’t want their competitors to get better. This is different. This is survival. After the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, there were real concerns that the In-

VIEWS Rick Morrissey ternational Olympic Committee might shut down women’s hockey. Then-IOC President Jacques Rogge had said, ‘We cannot continue without improvement.’’ A two-team tournament isn’t much of a tournament. Last week, an IOC spokesman said the organization is “very pleased’’ with the quality of competition here. But Germany coach Peter Kathan, having watched his team lose to Finland on Sunday, didn’t sound like a guy who sees a whole lot of gap-closing going on. “The level of ice hockey in North America is better, and there is a big gap between there and Europe,’’ he said. “It is a big gap, as big as the Atlantic Ocean.’’ When Switzerland eliminated Russia on Saturday, it was looked upon as a sign of progress for women’s hockey. The Russians, on the rise in women’s hockey, had pumped a lot of money into their national program. And here was Switzerland, with a population of about 8 million people, beating them, 2-0. It was not seen as progress by Chekanov. “While this is not the last day of our lives, clearly there is a huge gap between Switzerland and Russia,’’ he said. “We are clearly weaker. We have to be more determined in the future and work harder.’’ When the U.S. and Canada faced each other last week, the speed on display was striking compared with the rest of the world. Canada won that game, 3-2. If the

two teams don’t meet in the gold-medal game Thursday, it will be a huge upset. In Vancouver, the U.S. beat Sweden, 9-1, to get to the gold-medal game. Are the days of lopsided scores over? Probably not. The Americans beat the Swiss, 9-0, last week. But give it some time. “I think it’s actually developed quicker than men’s hockey,’’ said Canadian Hayley Wickenheiser, who is playing in her fifth Olympics. “If you look at men’s hockey, I think it took the Finns like 90 years to beat the Canadians in the World Championship. We’re ahead of the game here.’’ This is about money, as it usually is. The United States and Canada have put money into their national programs and have grown the game from the grassroots level. Other countries don’t have it so good. “It is a problem after this Olympic period because we ... will lose about 10 players who will have to go to work,’’ Kathan said. “We will have to find players.’’ Kendall Coyne, a 21-year-old U.S. forward from Palos Heights, has been playing hockey since she was 4. She played with boys’ teams until she was 15 because that was the way to improve. That’s changing, she said. Her sister, who is four years younger, played only on girls’ teams, where there is more talent now. “The amount of growth that women’s hockey has had, you’re able to play girls hockey growing up and still make it to this level,’’ Kendall Coyne said. Now, if only the world would catch up. • Rick Morrissey is a Chicago SunTimes sports columnist who can be reached at rmorrissey@suntimes.com.

MEN’S HOCKEY ROUNDUP

Scares for Russia, Canada in last of prelims By GREG BEACHAM The Associated Press SOCHI, Russia – While the United States and Canada finished preliminary-round play without a defeat Sunday, Russia survived a bit more drama to keep on rolling in the Olympic men’s hockey tournament. The U.S. beat Slovenia, 5-1, to finish group play with three victories and the No. 2 seed in the quarterfinals. The Americans were arguably the most impressive team in the preliminary round, and Phil

Kessel had a hat trick in their latest win. Canada also won three times in the prelims but had to go to overtime against Finland for a 2-1 victory on Drew Doughty’s second goal of the night. Russia went to a shootout for the second straight night after losing to the Americans in the preliminary round’s best game, and the home fans were more pleased by the second result. Ilya Kovalchuk and Alexander Radulov scored on

surprising Slovak goalie Jan Laco, giving a 1-0 victory to the Russians on a shutout by Semyon Varlamov. The field is set for the elimination portion of the tournament after Sunday’s games. Sweden is the No. 1 seed with three regulation victories, dominating its bracket despite the absence of injured stars Henrik Zetterberg, Henrik Sedin and Johan Franzen. Canada could have taken the No. 1 seed but lost a standings point for going to overtime against the feisty Finns,

who finished fourth overall to earn the final bye into the quarterfinals. The Canadians slipped into third, one spot behind the Americans. Austria earned its first Olympic victory in 12 years in Sunday’s early game, beating winless Norway, 3-1. The top four teams get an extra day off this week, while Russia leads the remaining eight teams into the qualification round Tuesday. The hosts will face Norway for the chance to play Finland in the quarterfinals.

Girlfriend’s texts to stepfather throw family out of whack Dear Abby: My youngest grown son discovered his girlfriend – his possible future wife – was texting pictures of herself to his stepfather. Needless to say, he told her the relationship is over. Now, for obvious reasons, he no longer wants to be around his stepfather, and is deeply concerned about how this will affect his relationship with his mother, my ex-wife. They are close, which I encouraged, but she seems to be in denial about the situation. Have you any suggestions on how to be supportive of my son and all the dynam-

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips ics? – Too Much Drama In Missouri Dear Too Much Drama: You say your ex-wife seems to be in denial. Was the reason for the breakup ever explained to her? If it wasn’t, then your son should talk to his mother about it, and from then on arrange to see her alone. Dear Abby: I just dropped off my 13-year-old son at a party. He’s a seventh-grader, and when I take him to a friend’s house, if I haven’t

met the parents, I walk him to the door and introduce him and myself to them. I do this to try and make sure the parents are at home and responsible. (Honestly, if they weren’t, I’d take my son and leave.) I know it embarrasses him, but most parents thank me because they want to meet the parents of the kids who are in their homes. Times are different for our kids today. I just can’t believe someone simply would drop off a child and speed away when he/she has absolutely no clue who these people are. I’m not a helicopter parent; I’m just a mother who loves my children

Artificial trans fats may soon be eliminated from all foods Dear Dr. K: I see trans fats listed on food labels, and I’ve read the FDA may ban them. Can you remind me what trans fats are, and why they’re bad for me? Dear Reader: Trans fats are a type of unsaturated fat. Once upon a time, we consumed only small amounts of naturally occurring trans fats in some meat and dairy products. But by the end of the 20th century, trans fats were everywhere. That’s because chemists discovered they could turn liquid vegetable oil into a solid or semi-solid by bubbling hydrogen gas through it (think margarine). When hydrogen is bubbled through liquid oils, they are called “partially hydrogenated” oils, or trans fats. Why would chemists want to create trans fats? They don’t spoil or turn rancid as readily as non-hydrogenated fats, and they respond better to repeated heating. Those characteristics made trans fats a workhorse of the food industry. By the late 1990s, nearly all prepared cook-

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff ies and crackers contained trans fats. Restaurant frying oils also were rich in trans fats. At first, doctors and nutrition scientists thought trans fat in food might be a healthy substitute for saturated fat, which was known to increase blood cholesterol levels and the risk of heart disease. So people hoped substituting trans fats for saturated fat would reduce the risk of heart disease. For example, my mother stopped using butter and started using stick margarine. That’s what I recommended to my patients. In the 1990s, nutrition scientists – led by my Harvard colleague Dr. Walter Willett – discovered trans fats were at least as heart-unhealthy as saturated fats. Eating trans fats boosts LDL (bad) cholesterol and lowers protective HDL cholesterol. Trans fats also have unhealthy effects on

triglycerides. They increase the risk of blood clots, and they feed inflammation, which plays a key role in heart disease, stroke and diabetes. And yet, for years the FDA labeled trans fats as “generally recognized as safe” (GRAS). That allowed them to be used without testing or approval. In November, the FDA proposed removing trans fats from the GRAS list. That means companies will have to prove trans fats are safe if they want to continue to put them in their products. The FDA’s proposal, if finalized, should eliminate artificial trans fats from our food supply. Food companies already have found healthier alternatives, so your taste buds are unlikely to even notice the change. But your heart and the rest of your body most certainly will.

enough to make sure they’re in good hands. Recently, a ninth-grader in our school district had a house party where 30 kids received underage drinking citations. Sorry – but I’m taking no chances. Parenting is not being your child’s best friend. Please encourage parents not to be afraid to reach out to other parents. It really does take a village. – Vigilant

In Bucks County, Pa. Dear Vigilant: Your children are fortunate to have a mother who is as involved in their lives as you are. Not all young people are so lucky. Your son may find your vigilance embarrassing, but

take comfort in knowing all kids your son’s age find their parents embarrassing. Orchids to you for pointing out the importance of parents networking with each other to ensure their children are safe and supervised. When an entire “village” is watching, there is less chance of a lamb straying. Dear Abby: I have been married to my wife for 33 years. I recently found a pair of her panties with “Booty Call” printed across the back. I can’t help but wonder. She has never had underwear like that in 33 years. What gives? –

Dear Surprised: Was your wife wearing the lingerie at the time? If not, how did you discover the panties? The surest way to get to the bottom of this would be to ask your wife this question. She may have thought they were cute and bought them on impulse – or they may have been a gift. Please let me know, because not only am I interested in her answer, but I’m sure millions of readers are curious, too. • Write Dear Abby at www.dearabby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Bertrand Piccard from Switzerland and Brian Jones from England were the irst to travel nonstop around the world in a balloon. Piccard said, “Very often, human beings are living like on autopilot, reacting automatically with what happens.” Some bridge players count at the table almost without being aware they are doing it. These experts are on autopilot. That is good. There are many more players who are on a different autopilot, following the typical “rules” of the game, which is occasionally not good. In this deal, for example, how should the defenders play to defeat three no-trump after West leads his fourth-highest heart four? In the auction, I disagree with North’s using Stayman, because his doubleton is so strong. He should just raise to three no-trump. We have all heard of “third hand high.” And many Easts would not be able to resist using it at trick one, covering dummy’s heart ive with the seven -- but it is the wrong play. When third hand cannot contribute a nine or higher, he

should give count. Here, with an odd number of hearts, he should play the two. Declarer will win with his jack, cross to dummy with a spade to the queen, and run the diamond 10. West, on winning with his king, should cash the heart ace, knowing that declarer will have to drop his king. West will then run his suit for down one. If East plays the heart seven at trick one, West should assume East started with a doubleton and shift to a club, trying to get East on lead for a heart lead through declarer’s king.

CROSSWORD

HOROSCOPE

! !

TODAY - Your goals are within reach. With concentration and dedication, the hopes and dreams you have been harboring for so long can be realized. Voice your opinions with confidence. If you maintain your focus and determination, this will prove to be a great year for you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Put your abilities in the spotlight. Demonstrate your skills to those in a position to help you advance. Seizing an opportunity will give you a chance to improve your financial situation. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You have been craving companionship. Enjoy a little romance or devote time to someone you think is special. Memories will help you choose the right path. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Business meetings and professional functions will play an important role today. By conveying helpful suggestions to your superiors, you will encourage your advancement and gain the chance to explore new challenges. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Show your family how much you care. A trip or time spent word toward the same domestic goal will create strong new bonds and strengthen old ones. Your efforts and concerns will be appreciated. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Social engagements and other group gatherings should be avoided. You will be hypersensitive to the opinions of others. Rather than risk hurt feelings, treat yourself to some peace and quiet. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Don’t be tempted to divulge personal information, even if those around you are curious about your private life. If you let something slip, you’ll jeopardize an important relationship. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- One way to increase your status is to make yourself visible in a charitable organization. Support a worthy cause or improve your networking skills to attract the attention of someone influential. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- If you’re feeling bored and restless, now would be an ideal time to contact some of your old friends. You may decide to change your routine by attending a sports event, concert or reunion. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- People you live or deal with daily will be frustrating. Airing your opinions will only make matters worse. Distance yourself from the situation and spend time doing something that makes you happy. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Your charisma, charm and personality will generate positive attention. Newfound friends will brighten your life, not to mention your personal prospects. Plan to have some fun. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Don’t try to persuade others to your way of thinking. They will not be receptive to your comments, and you could end up causing an argument. Keep your opinions to yourself. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Set aside your worries for today, and get involved in a pleasurable pastime. Participate in some fun and games with family members or friends who enjoy pursuits similar to yours.
