Group urges voters to reject referenda in Huntley, J’burg By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO

Blind athlete skis for the gold
A Chicago-based taxpayer group with a national reach is working to defeat two referenda in Huntley and Johnsburg that the group’s president says enrich local bureaucrats and increase property taxes on residents. Jim Tobin, president of Taxpayers United of America, said his group is supplying current and former members in both Jim Tobin M c H e n r y Taxpayers County towns United of with fliers and America information meant to drum up resistance against referenda proposed by the Huntley Park District and Johnsburg District 12 on the March 18 primary ballot. Johnsburg school officials, meanwhile, have said the criticisms levied by Tax-
payers United are off base. “They should vote against them if they want to save on property taxes,” Tobin said. “If they want property tax increases, they should vote yes to benefit the bureaucrats.” Huntley Park District has proposed an $18.75 million construction bond referendum that would allow officials to expand district services and create a new indoor turf facility. District 12 has proposed a referendum that would allow officials to issue up to $41 million in new bonds to finance building improvements and maintenance needs. If voters approved both proposals, their property tax bills would remain at their current levels. Property tax bills would decrease slightly, if voters in both towns rejected the referenda and allowed existing bonds to retire. Along with Huntley and

GOP hopefuls agree prisons overcrowded, but fixes elusive Election Central
By JOHN O’CONNOR The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD – The four Republican candidates for governor are in agreement when it comes to Illinois prisons: There are too many inmates, not enough cells and quick action is needed to address what they say is a public safety threat. “The population in our correctional facilities is dramatically overcrowded,” state Treasurer Dan Rutherford, who’s in the running for Illinois’ top office, said in responding to a questionnaire from The Associated Press. “There are 49,000 inmates in a system designed for 32,000. This is not safe for the employees or those incarcerated.” But none of the candidates – Rutherford, Sens. Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard and venture capitalist Bruce Rauner – offers a clear-cut, short-term plan for fixing the overcrowding situation, short of reopening recently shuttered facilities.

They are all at least skeptical of building new prisons, with most suggesting long-term strategic planning to determine the best way to house a population the Illinois Department of Corrections predicts will top 49,700 by September. In a departure from Republicans’ traditional lock-’em-up philosophy, the GOP candidates are open to the idea of alternative sentencing for low-level offenders. They would use programs such as Adult Redeploy Illinois, which diverts nonviolent offenders in several counties from prison by offering drug treatment, therapy or other services. And all but Rauner would at least consider reopening Tamms, a super-maxi-
mum security lockup in far southern Illinois that was closed in 2012. The questionnaire answers left little to distinguish between the candidates, right down to criticizing incumbent Democratic Gov. Pat Quinn. “I disagree with the governor’s decision to close Tamms; our worst criminals are now in other prisons and endangering the lives of guards,” said Dillard, of Hinsdale, who wants to reopen the facility. “The governor is now trying to control the population with excessive ‘early release’ which also threatens public safety.” The Corrections Department has said it continually assesses short- and longterm facility needs based on the number of prisoners coming into the system. But it has faced blistering criticism over its handling of prisons since Quinn took office in 2009. His razor-thin election victory in 2010

Sweet memories with Fred and Lorraine It was the summer of 1938 and Fred Stobaugh was thirsty. Nothing would quench that thirst like a cold root beer, so he headed to the local A&W Root Beer stand on the east side of Peoria. Out skated a young carhop named Lorraine to take his order. But there was more than just an icy mug of root beer that passed between them that day. As Fred reminisced, “She was real timid like, but I fell in love with her right then and there. She was just the prettiest girl I ever saw.” Such was the beginning of a love story that would span the next 75 years. Time smiled kindly upon Fred and Lorraine as they eventually married, raised a family and spent their Golden Years together. But it was when they hit their 90s that their magical timepiece began to wind down. Lorraine took ill and passed away in April of 2013. One would think that was the end of this love story. Ninety-six-year-old Fred would continue on for a short lonely time and soon, he, too, would pass. But not this love story.
JUST HUMOR ME Michael Penkava Some weeks after her death, Fred decided to write a song for his beloved wife. He would call it, “Oh, Sweet Lorraine.” Here’s how he described what happened: “After she passed away, I was sitting in the front room one evening by myself, and it just came right to me. I just kept humming it and singing it … it just fit her.” Fred later heard of a local songwriting contest in Peoria and, on a whim, mailed in a letter with his lyrics attached. In his letter, he said he didn’t care if he won the contest, he just wanted people to know how much he loved Lorraine. The producer of the contest was so touched by Fred’s letter that he offered to professionally record the song for him. Later, he brought Fred a copy to listen to. Listening to the opening notes, Fred began to smile.
“Oh, sweet Lorraine,” the words went, “I wish we could do all the good times over again.” “Oh, sweet Lorraine,” they continued, “life only goes around once but never again.” A soft refrain added, “But the memories will always linger on, oh, sweet Lorraine, no I don’t wanna move on … Oh, the memories will always linger on, oh, sweet Lorraine, that’s why I wrote you this song.” By the end of the song all Fred could say was, “It was wonderful … just wonderful,” as he tearfully covered his mouth with a shaky hand and thankfully patted the producer on the arm. Later Fred said, “It was a wonderful 75 years … I just often think it’s kinda unreal … dreaming or something … but it was real … I really, really miss her… just don’t seem right.” Fred’s song was placed on YouTube and has been watched almost five million times. It hit number five on the iTunes chart, even passing up megastar Justin Timberlake. He even became the oldest artist to appear on
the Billboard Hot 100. But Fred’s song wasn’t about setting recording records. It never was. All he wanted to do was tell people how much he loved his wife. And that he did. So it appears that the love story of Fred and Lorraine is not over after all. It is like Fred explained, “The song really helps me … it just seemed like she’s just sort of with me.” But more than that, Fred’s song is an inspiration to those of us husbands who are fortunate enough to still have our Lorraines with us. For Fred reminds us that, although true love is timeless, it is also ever so fragile. May we handle it with care while it is still within our grasp. Sweet memories, my friends.

Agencies at odds over in-flight cellphone use By JOAN LOWY The Associated Press WASHINGTON – It looks like the government is more conflicted about cellphones on planes than most travelers. Even as one federal agency considers allowing the calls, another now wants to make sure that doesn’t happen. Passengers – particularly those who fly often – oppose allowing calls in flight, polls show. In line with that sentiment, the Department of Transportation signaled in a 22-page notice posted online Friday that it wants to retain a ban on the calls. But the notice comes just two months after the Federal Communications Commission voted to pursue

lifting the ban. Transportation regulates aviation consumer issues. The FCC has responsibility over whether the use of cellphones in flight would interfere with cellular networks on the ground. FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler has said he wants to repeal the current ban, calling it restrictive and outdated. He also wants the airlines, not the government, to have final say on in-flight calling. He declined to comment Friday on the Transportation Department’s notice. Echoing some travelers’ concerns, Transportation said it believes allowing passengers to make cellphone calls “may be harmful or injurious”
to other passengers. This is because “people tend to talk louder on cellphones than when they’re having face-to-face conversations,” the department said. “They are also likely to talk more and further increase the noise on a flight, as passengers would not be simply talking to the persons sitting next to them but can call whomever they like.” Some planes already have seat-back phones in place, but they are rarely used, it said. The “concern is not about individual calls, but rather the cumulative impact of allowing in-flight calls in close quarters,” the department said.

cent of those surveyed opposed letting cellphones be used for voice calls while planes are in flight, while 19 percent were in favor and 30 percent were neutral. Among those who’d flown four or more times in the previous year, the rate of opposition soared to 78 percent. Delta Air Lines told the government last year that 64 percent of its passengers indicated that the ability to make phone calls in flight would have a negative impact on their onboard experience. Among the most ardent opponents of lifting the current ban are flight attendants, who worry that phone conversation will spark arguments between passengers and even acts of violence.

Bill Brady, businessman Bruce Rauner and Treasurer Dan Rutherford in the March primary.
Quinn in Washington to talk minimum wage hike CHICAGO – Gov. Pat Quinn is spending several days in the nation’s capital for meetings on raising the minimum wage, education and disaster recovery. Quinn’s office said Friday that he had meetings at the White House on Friday that would focus on raising the rate. The Chicago Democrat has Gov. Pat said he wants Quinn to raise Illinois’ $8.25 minimum wage to at least $10 by the end of the year. His push has coincided with a national Democratic push. The federal minimum wage is $7.25. Some of Quinn’s meetings are in conjunction with the Democratic Governors Association. He’ll also attend a reception at the White House and meet with federal officials on education and business.
Ex-NIU police chief sues school in federal court DEKALB – The former police chief at Northern Illinois University is suing the school, saying he wants to be reinstated to his post and get an apology from administrators. Shaw Media reported Donald Grady filed the federal civil rights lawsuit Wednesday. Michael Fox, Grady’s lawyer, said the chief was fired without a fair Donald hearing and was Grady treated differently than white employees who were implicated in a scheme to use proceeds from off-the-books sales of scrap metal. Grady is black. He was fired in February 2013 after being accused of mishandling evidence in an investigation into allegations that a campus police officer sexually assaulted a student. Grady has denied the accusation.
Ill. bill would let choir members out of gym SPRINGFIELD – A Downers Grove lawmaker wants to let students skip gym if they participate in show choir.

Sandack also wants to expand the exemption to include underclassmen.

Judge: Same-sex couples don’t have to wait Rules gay couples in Cook County can marry now By SOPHIA TAREEN and TAMMY WEBBER The Associated Press CHICAGO – Same-sex couples in Illinois’ largest county began receiving marriage licenses immediately after a federal judge’s ruling Friday that some attorneys said could give county clerks statewide justification to also issue the documents right away. Illinois approved samesex marriage last year; the new law takes effect June 1. However, U.S. District Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman ruled Friday that same-sex marriages can begin now in Cook County, where Chicago is located. “There is no reason to delay further when no opposition has been presented to this Court and committed gay and lesbian couples have already suffered from the denial
Charlie Gurion (center) and David Wilk hold up their marriage license as Cook County Clerk David Orr (left) looks on Friday in Chicago. U.S. District Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman ruled Friday that same-sex marriages can begin now in Cook County, where Chicago is located. Gurion and Wilk were the first couple to show up to get a license after the judge made her ruling. of their fundamental right to marry,” she wrote in the order. The decision stemmed from a lawsuit filed against Cook County Clerk David Orr, who supports gay marriage. Coleman already ruled in December that same-sex couples did not have to wait until
June to marry if one or both partners had a life-threatening illness. Several same-sex couples married after that ruling. Advocates for same-sex marriage immediately celebrated the ruling, and Orr said his office would be open two hours later on Friday, un-
til 7 p.m., to accommodate any couples who want to get their marriage licenses after work. He even waived the 24hour waiting period after a license is obtained to perform a wedding for Chicago couple Mercedes Santos and Theresa Volpe, who’ve been together for more than two decades and have three children together. “This is a day that’s been a long time coming. It’s an historical day,” Orr said earlier Friday. Charlie Gurion and David Wilk were the first in line to get a license. Gurion, 25, proposed to Wilk, 31, when they were in Paris last year. They’ve planned a September wedding but will legally marry within 60 days, per state law. “It’s really shocking to be first,” Gurion said. “We’re honored to be part of this huge, momentous day.” Officials with the Catholic Conference of Illinois, which opposes gay marriage, declined to comment Friday. As did the Thomas More Society, a Chicago public interest law
firm that helped defend the state’s same-sex marriage ban in a 2012 lawsuit. The judge’s decision specifies that it only applies to Cook County. But attorneys for Lambda Legal and the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois, who filed the lawsuit, said there was guidance for clerks statewide. Christopher Clark, counsel at Lambda Legal in Chicago, said the fact that a federal judge said the state’s marriage ban was unconstitutional by violating the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment could be a signal to other county clerks who have to uphold the law. “It’s an enormous victory,” he said. “We’re thrilled.” But there was still confusion Friday as county clerks across the state were sorting out what the decision could mean for them. Madison County Clerk Debra Ming-Mendoza in southwestern Illinois said she hadn’t seen the ruling yet and wanted the state’s attorney to take a look at it.
Universities worry about minimum wage increase The ASSOCIATED PRESS SPRINGFIELD – Officials at Illinois’ public universities worry that a proposed increase in the state’s minimum wage could hurt their already tight budgets. State Sen. Kim Lightford has sponsored a bill that would raise Illinois’ minimum wage from $8.25 an hour to $10, and Gov. Pat Quinn has made a an increase in the minimum hourly pay a key part of his re-election campaign.
“I just think it is important that we have a sustainable living wage in the state of Illinois.” State Sen. Kim Lightford of Maywood, on sponsoring a bill that would raise the state’s minimum wage from $8.25 an hour to $10 But according to the Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises newspapers, Southern Illinois University President Glen Poshard said that would cost the school $3.2 million a year in additional wages. And that comes at a
time when the Illinois General Assembly could be considering cuts in money for higher education. “We need an increase in funding in higher education,” Poshard told members of a House committee Thurs-
day. “We don’t have any extra to run our university.” Illinois State University officials said raising the minimum wage could cost their school about $1.6 mil lion. More than 4,000 student workers there currently earn the minimum wage. And at Western Illinois University, the increase would cost the school more than $1 million a year, according to Matt Bierman, Western’s budget director. Bierman said the university would have to raise tui-
tion or cut student workers’ hours at a time when available financial aid is limited. “The students need these dollars,” Bierman said. Lightford is a Maywood Democrat. She said the current minimum wage just isn’t enough for people to live on. “I just think it is important that we have a sustainable living wage in the state of Illinois,” Lightford said. But Lightford said she was still at least two votes short of what she needed to move the legislation out of the Senate.

New sense of purpose as Obama acts alone The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – This week, President Barack Obama promoted tougher fuel efficiency standards for trucks. He touted progress on initiatives to strengthen the U.S. patent system. And he signed an executive order intended to speed up the process for approving import or export cargo. Welcome to Obama’s self-proclaimed “year of action,” where hardly a day goes by without the president and his top advisers trumpeting policy initiatives the White House is undertaking without the help of Congress. The mostly modest actions – far shy of the sweeping im-
migration overhaul Obama hoped for this year – put into sharp focus the president’s limitations as he grapples with reluctant lawmakers in an election year. They also underscore how much has changed for Obama since the early days of his presidency, when he declared, “We do big things.” Yet the flurry of executive actions does seem to be having a cathartic effect inside the White House, which was in need of a jolt after a frustrating and disjointed 2013 that included the flawed rollout of Obama’s signature health care law and a sharp drop in the president’s approval ratings. Advisers who ended the year dispirited now
appear buoyed by a new sense of purpose – and the prospect of working around a Congress that has long been an irritant to the president. “I think people came back from the break over the holidays in a real positive frame of mind,” said David Axelrod, a longtime adviser to the president. “You don’t want to be the prisoner of a negative narrative that somehow Congress has stymied the president and nothing can get done.” Signaling how little the White House expects to change on Capitol Hill this year, Obama communications director Jennifer Palmieri said advisers are already mapping out plans for exec-
utive actions that will be unveiled well into the fall and winter. That process, she said, “has ignited a lot of creative thinking around here.” Even so, the president’s political standing looks little better than it did at the end of last year. His approval rating continues to hover in the mid-to low-forties. Democrats are on edge about their prospects of retaining control of the Senate. And hope of securing an immigration overhaul – Obama’s one legislative goal that appeared to have some chance of success this year – faded when House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, announced this month that a measure was unlikely to pass in 2014.
President Barack Obama meets with members of the Democratic Governors Association on Friday in the State Dining Room of the White House in Washington. The National Governors Association 2014 winter meeting starts Friday.

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke speaks Dec. 4, 2008, on housing and housing finance at the Federal Reserve in Washington. Fed officials agonized throughout 2008 over how far they could go to stop financial catastrophe that threatened to pull the economy into a deep recession, transcripts of the Fedís policy meetings that year show.
Transcripts show Fed at times slow to grasp crisis The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – The Federal Reserve agonized in 2008 over how far to go to stop a financial crisis that threatened to cause a recession and at times struggled to recognize its speed and magnitude. “We’re crossing certain lines. We’re doing things we haven’t done before,” Chairman Ben Bernanke said as Fed officials met in an emergency session March 10 and launched never-before-taken steps to lend to teetering Wall Street firms, among a series of unorthodox moves that year to calm investors and aid the economy. “On the other hand, this financial crisis is now in its eighth month, and the economic outlook has worsened quite significantly.” The Fed on Friday released hundreds of pages of transcripts covering its 14 meetings during 2008 – eight regularly scheduled meetings and six emergency sessions. The Fed releases full transcripts of each year’s policy meetings
after a five-year lag. The 2008 transcripts cover the most tumultuous period of the crisis, including the collapse and rescue of investment bank Bear Stearns, the government takeover of mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the fateful decision to let investment bank Lehman Brothers fold in the largest bankruptcy in U.S. history and the bailout of insurer American International Group. For all its aggressive steps in 2008, the transcripts show the Fed failing at times to grasp the size of the catastrophe they were dealing with. Bernanke and his top lieutenants often expressed puzzlement that they weren’t managing to calm panicky investors. As late as Sept. 16, a day after Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy, Bernanke declared, “I think that our policy is looking actually pretty good.” The Fed declined at that meeting to cut its benchmark short-term rate. Yet just three
DETROIT – Detroit presented its first full road map for leaving bankruptcy Friday, outlining an elaborate plan to restructure $18 billion in debt, demolish thousands of blighted homes and invest in the broken-down infrastructure that has made the city a symbol of urban decay. If approved by a judge, the wide-ranging proposal would sharply reduce payments to some retirees and creditors. Pension holders could expect to get 70 percent to 90 percent of what they are owned, while many banks would receive as little as 20 percent. The plan, which is sure to be the subject of court challenges, envisions a leaner, cleaner and safer Motor City after its crushing financial burdens are lifted. “There is still much work in front of all of us to con-
tinue the recovery from a decades-long downward spiral,” Kevyn Orr, the city’s state-appointed emergency manager, said in a statement. Orr’s so-called plan of adjustment “provides the best path forward for all parties to resolve their respective issues and for Detroit to become once again a city in which people want to inKevyn Orr vest, live and work.” The state is focused “on protecting and minimizing the impact on retirees, especially those on fixed, limited incomes,” Gov. Rick Snyder said, as well as “restoring and improving essential services” and “building a foundation for the city’s longterm financial stability and economic growth.”
The governor called the plan “a critical step forward.” But it leaves unanswered many questions, including whether creditors and labor unions will accept the deal or fight it, and how long that process might take. The package calls for awarding police and fire retirees at least 90 percent of their pensions after eliminating cost-of-living allowances. Other retirees would receive at least 70 percent. It still doesn’t seem fair to Janice Pegg, 67, who receives the pension left by her husband, Victor, a Detroit police officer who died two years ago. “He earned these benefits through his hard work, through his labor, through wage freezes back when he was employed,” Pegg said. “I thought that would be money I would be able to take care of myself.”
weeks later, after the Fed had rescued AIG, Bernanke felt compelled to call an emergency conference call. In it, he won approval for a half-point rate cut. Early in the year, some Fed officials had yet to appreciate the gravity of the crisis. In January, Frederic Mishkin, a Fed governor, missed an emergency conference call because he was “on the slopes.” “I think in Idaho somewhere,” Bernanke said. The crisis had been building for months. In the Jan. 21 conference call, Bernanke rallied support for a deep cut in interest rates. He warned that market turmoil reflected investors’ concerns that “the United States is in for a deep and protracted recession.” Bernanke apologized for convening the call on the Martin Luther King holiday. But he felt the urgency of the crisis required the Fed to act before its regularly scheduled meeting the next week. It approved a cut of three-fourths of a percentage point in its benchmark for short-term rates.

Tribal killing suspect targeted Investigators looking for missing $50,000 The ASSOCIATED PRESS ALTURAS, Calif. – The woman who police say killed three family members and a worker at the headquarters building for an Indian tribe that was evicting her and her son from its land was the target of a federal investigation into at least $50,000 in missing tribal funds. Investigators have been looking into whether Cherie Lash Rhoades took federal grant money meant for the Cedarville Rancheria tribe she once led, a person familiar with the tribe’s situation told The Associated Press on Friday. The person spoke only on condition of anonymity. Rhoades recently was ousted as chairwoman of the 35-member tribe that includes many of her relatives. On Thursday afternoon, her brother, Rurik Davis, and other tribal members were attending a meeting involving Rhoades’s potential eviction at the headquarters building in the rural northeastern California community of Alturas. It’s unclear precisely when the shooting began, but in quick succession Davis, 50; Rhoades’ niece, Angel Penn, 19; her nephew, Glenn Calonicco, 30; and Shelia Lynn Russo, 47, were killed. Investigators were looking into whether the embezzlement allegations spurred the tribe’s efforts to evict Rhoades, but had not established any definitive motive, Alturas Police Chief Ken Barnes said Friday. “If we could confirm or deny that, it would help me toward a motive,” Barnes said. Eviction from tribal housing is among the most serious punishments for American Indians. One of Rhoades’ nephews, Jason Penn, said Davis was behind the effort. “Her brother drove her too far,” Penn said as he stood in the front yard of Rhoades’ home on the tribe’s land in Cedarville, about 15 miles from Alturas. Penn said he drove into Alturas on Thursday with Rhoades, and she dropped him off at a cousin’s home before going to tribal headquarters. He later heard about the shooting. “All I heard was there was some shooting, and my sister and brother were dead,” he said with a shrug. His sister was Penn, and his brother Calonicco. “I’ve gotten over worse.” The fourth victim, Russo, 47, was a tribal administrator who managed evictions and had two teenagers, said her mother, Linda Stubblefield of Taft. Davis’s two daughters were wounded, police said. One was alert and talking. The other remained in critical condition, Barnes said. Barnes said young children were inside the building and on the property, and a judge from another tribe was listening to the eviction proceedings over the phone when the shooting began. After running out of bullets, Rhoades grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed a woman, police said. She chased one of Davis’ daughters out of the building and into the parking lot while brandishing the knife, Barnes said. Authorities were alerted to the attack when a woman covered in blood ran to nearby City Hall and rang a bell to get into a side door, City Clerk Cary Baker said. “She was saying, ‘Help me, help me, people have been shot,’” Baker said. The woman was not injured, Baker said. Officers arriving after the attack found Rhoades outside the building, running and clutching a knife, Barnes said. A tribal employee helped tackle her, and she was quickly subdued and arrested.

Oil train wrecks spur safety measures The ASSOCIATED PRESS BILLINGS, Mont. – Railroads that haul volatile crude shipments have reached an agreement with U.S. transportation officials to adopt wide-ranging, voluntary safety measures after a string of explosive and deadly accidents. The deal signed Friday calls for oil trains to be slowed from a maximum of 50 to 40 miles per hour through major cities, more frequent track inspections and better emergency response planning along routes that carry trains hauling up to 3 million gallons of crude each. The new safety steps would begin going into effect in late March and be fully in place by July 1. After a boom in domestic drilling in recent years, oil trains now travel thousands of miles from oil producing areas, including the Northern

Smoke rises from railway cars that were carrying crude oil after derailing July 6, 2013, in downtown Lac Megantic, Quebec, Canada. Railroads that haul volatile crude shipments have reached an agreement with U.S. transportation officials to adopt wide-ranging voluntary safety measures after a string of explosive and deadly accidents. Plains, to coastal refineries and shipping terminals along the Mississippi River and other major waterways. The agreement does not resolve concerns over another hazardous fuel, ethanol,
involved in a spate of rail accidents in recent years. It also does not address an estimated 78,000 flawed tank cars that carry crude and ethanol and are known to split open during derailments.
The U.S. Department of Transportation said it would address the tank car issue separately. By taking voluntary steps, the railroads will be able to act more quickly than if they waited for new safety rules to be drafted and approved by the government, said Robert Chipkevich, a former director of rail accident investigations at the National Transportation Safety Board. But regulators will have little leverage to enforce the industry’s commitments, he added. “It’s a positive step,” Chipkevich said. “But certainly there’s nothing to say they would have to continue following those practices. The only way you can enforce something like that would be for regulators to publish regulations and do periodic oversight.” Federal officials said they would continue to pursue longer-term safety measures
and use regular inspections to check for compliance with the industry agreement. With no formal rules in place inspectors could not issue fines or take other punitive measures. “We expect for this to be a document that is fully adhered to, and are prepared to inspect accordingly and call out the industry as necessary,” Federal Railroad Administrator Joseph Szabo said in a Friday interview with The Associated Press. The Association of American Railroads represents the major railroads in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. President Edward Hamberger said he expects all of them to sign the agreement. At least 10 times since 2008, freight trains hauling oil across North America have derailed and spilled significant quantities of crude, with most of the accidents touching off fires or catastrophic explosions.
A star’s downfall at historically black Alcorn By JEFF AMY The Associated Press LORMAN, Miss. – M. Christopher Brown II was regarded as a rising star in the world of historically black universities and a transformational leader at Mississippi’s Alcorn State University. Hired at just 38, he and the university were winning awards and Alcorn’s profile was on the rise. But by his third year on the job, complaints began to surface about money spent on lavish upgrades to the president’s residence and the relationship between a Brown aide and a production
company that staged campus concerts, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press through a public records request. Amid an investigation of the spending by the board that oversees the university, Brown and two others resigned in December. The probe and resignations come at a time when Alcorn and other historically black schools are working to recover from the recession. Mississippi’s three historically black public universities fought off a proposal by former Gov. Haley Barbour to merge them, and overall higher education spending in Mississippi has only begun to
recover from sharp cuts. “I’m sick about it because it’s going to impact recruiting, support from the Legislature, everything,” said Higher Education Commissioner Hank Bounds, who oversees the state’s public universities. Hundreds of pages of invoices, checks, emails and other correspondence reviewed by the AP show Alcorn spent almost $89,000 on furniture and renovations at the president’s house – all without seeking bids as required under state law. The documents also show the production company associated with Brown’s aide uni-
versity collected $85,000 in fees as part of the money Alcorn paid it. And an auditor says the school spent more than $67,000 in bond money on projects that weren’t allowed in the lending agreement. The documents reveal for the first time details of the spending that led to Brown’s departure, which were known only among a select group of students, faculty and alumni. When Brown resigned, Bounds would only say it was related to an investigation into possible purchasing violations. Students interviewed Wednesday on campus said
they’d only heard rumors about why Brown left. “It was kind of sudden, but no one really spoke on it. We didn’t know the president was gone unless we looked on a website,” said Ayobunni Saleem, a freshman biology major from Milwaukee. The documents show Brown was aware of the spending on the president’s house and the concerts. It’s not clear, though, whether he knew before the probe started that money was being spent in ways that auditors would question. Reached at his home in Las Vegas, Brown declined to comment and didn’t return other messages.

Deal reached on Ukraine crisis The ASSOCIATED PRESS KIEV, Ukraine – Under heavy pressure from the West following a deadly day of clashes and sniper fire in the capital, President Viktor Yanukovych and opposition leaders struck a deal Friday aimed at bringing Ukraine’s three-month political crisis to an end. But radical protesters and some pro-Russian factions rejected it, leaving lingering doubts over whether peace could be restored. On a day of electrifying developments, the Ukrainian parliament also opened a path for Yulia Tymoshenko – Yanukovych’s political nemesis – to be let out of prison. In spite of what looked like a significant government retreat, protesters booed opposition figures who took to a stage Friday evening to present the deal, which cuts Yanukovych’s powers and calls for early elections but falls short of demands for his immediate resignation. “Death to the criminal!” some chanted, referring to Yanukovych. “Resign! Resign! Resign!” shouted others as one radical speaker threatened to go on an

Addressing the crowd in Kiev’s Independence Square, opposition leader Vitali Klitschko tried to persuade them that Yanukovych had likely
given all he was willing to give. “He’s not going to resign. This isn’t realistic. We have to think about realistic steps,” Klitschko said. The agreement signed Friday calls for presidential elections to be moved up from March 2015 to no later than De-
cember, but many protesters said that is far too late. And it does not address the issue that set off the protests in November – Yanukovych’s abandonment of closer ties with the European Union in favor of a bailout deal with longtime ruler Russia.
Who is Ukraine’s polarizing Yulia Tymoshenko? By JIM HEINTZ The Associated Press KIEV, Ukraine – As protests roiled Ukraine’s capital and exploded into violence, Yulia Tymoshenko’s face, topped by her trademark diadem of blonde peasant braids, overlooked the street mayhem from posters – an oddly ghostly presence for a woman who made her name by being in the thick of opposition action. The posters, on display near the stage of the protesters’ main camp and on the nearby city Christmas tree, were the only way Tymoshenko could be there. She’s been imprisoned for more than two

years serving a sentence widely regarded as an act of vengeance by her arch-foe, President Viktor Yanukovych. Now Tymoshenko may be just days from a return. Hours after Yanukovych and protest leaders signed Yulia a wide-ranging Tymoshenko agreement Fri- Ex-Ukrainian day to resolve prime minister the country’s political crisis, the parliament that once was in Yanukovych’s pocket approved a measure decriminalizing the charge used to convict Tymoshenko, paving the way for her
release. Freeing her would bring back one of the most polarizing figures in Ukraine’s overheated political scene. She is variously admired as an icon of democracy and detested as a self-promoting manipulator with a shady past. Tymoshenko became a world figure during Ukraine’s Orange Revolution protests of 2004, a riveting figure both for her ringing denunciations of election fraud and her distinctive mix of peasant hair and high-fashion dresses. She was more exciting to protesters than her Orange Revolution partner Viktor Yushchenko, who accused the government of stealing his
rightful victory in presidential elections. Tymoshenko became prime minister when Yushchenko won a court-ordered election rerun. Their facade of unity soon shattered in favor of incessant quarrels. Yushchenko fired her after nine months, only for her to regain the premiership in 2007. Unrelenting tensions between them virtually paralyzed the government. In 2010, Yanukovych rode a wave of voter discontent to oust Tymoshenko from the presidency. He was the very man that Orange Revolution activists believed had stolen power from Yushchenko in the first place six years before.
HARARE, Zimbabwe – A Zimbabwean magistrate on Friday dismissed charges against former U.S. Rep. Mel Reynolds of possessing pornography, and he was ordered to pay a fine or face jail time after pleading guilty to charges of violating the country’s immigration laws. The State had alleged that Reynolds had images of naked men and women on his iPhone 4S. The court, however, said it had to dismiss the charge because an order for such a charge is required by the country’s prosecutor-general and it was not properly obtained. Reynolds is meant to pay $100 or spend five days in prison for failing to renew his visa after it expired on Dec. 10, 2013, said Harare magistrate Tendai Mahwe. “Once the accused has paid his fine or spent time in prison, he must be handed over to the immigration offi-
cials for immediate deportation,” the magistrate said. Reynolds, 62, who lost his congressional seat in 1995 after being convicted of statutory rape, was arrested at a hotel in the Zimbabwean capital on Monday. During proceedings earlier Friday, lawyer Arthur Gurira said Reynolds hadn’t renewed his visa because he suffered a mild stroke in early January and “wasn’t in the best of health”. Gurira described Reynolds as a “business consultant” who is in Zimbabwe for business purposes. “He has been a frequent visitor since 2009, and in and out of the country for 17 times and on all those occasions, he didn’t overstay and was in strict compliance of the immigration laws in this country,” Gurira told the court. He also appealed to the court to treat Reynolds as a first offender who has never committed any crime in Zimbabwe.

Yemeni woman’s life entangled with al-Qaida By HAMZA HENDAWI The Associated Press SANAA, Yemen – Abeer al-Hassani’s ex-husband was famed for his beautiful voice. He used it, she says, singing poetic hymns to martyrdom and jihad to try to draw youth from their neighborhood of the Yemeni capital into joining al-Qaida. He sang at weddings of fellow members of the terror group, and held discussions with young men at local mosques. “One woman complained to me that her son wanted to go fight in Iraq after speaking with him,” the 25-year-old al-Hassani recalled in an interview with The Associated Press.
For most of her young life, al-Hassani has been entangled with al-Qaida through family bonds she has tried to shake off. Three of her brothers became fighters for the group, and all three are now dead, two of them killed by U.S drone strikes on consecutive days in January 2013. Her story provides a rare look into one of the most dangerous branches of the terror network, which has withstood successive blows and yet continues to thrive. It has moved to fueling conflict elsewhere in the region, sending fighters and expertise to Syria and to Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula. Her ex-husband, Omar al-Hebishi, backed up his recruiting with cash. During
their marriage, she says, he received large bank transfers or cash delivered overland from Saudi Arabia – money, he told her, that was to support the families of “martyrs.” She and al-Hebishi divorced in 2010. A month ago, he left for Syria to fight alongside al-Qaida-inspired extremists – but not before trying to recruit the older of their two sons, 8-yearold Aws, to come with him by showing the boy videos of al-Qaida fighters jogging and swimming. “Mom, I want to go because they have a swimming pool,” Aws told her, al-Hassani said. Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, as the Yemen branch is known, has been hit hard in the past few years. A
U.S.-backed government offensive in 2012 drove it out of southern cities that it seized a year earlier. Relentless U.S. drone strikes have killed several senior figures and dozens of lower-level fighters, keeping the group on the run. Still, several Yemeni security officials said al-Qaida has spread to operate in every province of the country of more than 25 million. Al-Qaida’s branch demonstrated its capabilities with a sophisticated and brutal attack in December on the Defense Ministry in the capital, Sanaa, that killed more than 50 people. The group benefits from Yemen’s political instability since the ouster of longtime President Ali Abdullah Saleh.
Venezuelan beauty queen mourned 22-year-old Genesis Carmona killed during demonstration Tuesday By BEN FOX The Associated Press VALENCIA, Venezuela – A university student beauty queen was mourned Friday in the provincial Venezuelan city where she was slain this week during a political protest, a victim of what government opponents say is indiscriminate violence used by President Nicolas Maduro and his supporters to stifle dissent across the country. Family members and friends of 22-year-old Genesis Carmona say the former Miss Tourism 2013 for the central Venezuelan state of Carabobo was shot down by members of the armed militias known as “colectivos” who opened fire on a demonstration in Valencia on Tuesday. The government says the incident is under investigation, and Maduro said at a news conference Friday that it has been “well-established” by ballistics experts that shots came from the opposition protesters. Mourners at the private Mass and graveside memorial for Carmona said they have no doubt which side fired the fatal round. “She wanted to support her country and, well, look what it cost her for going out with a flag and a whistle. Killed by government mercenaries,” said Jose Gil, an uncle of Carmona. The violence drew condemnation Friday from U.S.-based watchdog group Human Rights Watch, which said “Venezuelan security forces have used excessive and unlawful force against protesters on multiple
WASHINGTON – Seeking to correct potential acts of bias spanning three wars, President Barack Obama will award the Medal of Honor to 24 Army veterans following a congressionally mandated review to ensure that eligible recipients were not bypassed due to prejudice. The unusual mass ceremony, scheduled for March 18, will honor veterans, most of Hispanic or Jewish heritage, who had already been recognized with the Distinguished Service Cross, the nation’s second-highest military award. Only three of the recipients are living. “I never really did worry
the December attack, during which fighters broke into a hospital inside the Defense Ministry complex and killed patients, doctors and nurses. Hadi ordered security camera footage of the bloodshed released to the public, a move al-Saggaf said “dealt the image of al-Qaida a serious blow.” But al-Hassani’s tale illustrates the pull that al-Qaida has in a society where poverty is rife, the population is deeply conservative and many resent a corrupt government and abuses by security forces. “I can guarantee you that my two sons, Aws and Hamza, will follow in the footsteps of their father if we stay in Yemen,” al-Hassani said. “We need to get out of Yemen.”
8BRIEFS 265 Anne Frank books vandalized in libraries TOKYO – Anne Frank’s “The Diary of a Young Girl” and scores of books about the young Holocaust victim have been vandalized in Tokyo public libraries. Dozens of pages were ripped in the books. The libraries have counted 265 damaged books at 31 municipal libraries since the end of January. An official at one library said all the books could have been found using the keywords “Anne Frank” in an online database. The motive is unclear. Police are investigating.
Ole Miss frat suspended, noose suspects dropped
Relatives and friends carry the coffin of Genesis Carmona on Friday in Valencia, Venezuela. The university student and beauty queen was buried Friday in Valencia where she was slain during a political protest, a victim of what government opponents say is the kind of indiscriminate violence that has been used to stifle dissent across the country by supporters of President Nicolas Maduro. occasions since February 12, 2014, including beating detainees and shooting at crowds of unarmed people.” The report also said “the government has censored the news media, blocking transmission of a TV channel and threatening to prosecute news outlets for their coverage of the violence.” The U.S. news channel CNN said Friday four of its journalists were notified by the Information Ministry that they are no longer allowed to report in the country. They include CNN en Espanol anchor Patricia Janiot.
The U.S. State Department also issued a warning Friday to U.S. citizens in Venezuela to “maintain a low profile and to avoid all areas of civil disruption.” Maduro has insisted that the protesters are “fascist” elements intent on fomenting a coup and pledged to crack down. On Thursday, a judge determined there was enough evidence to detain opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez, who surrendered to authorities a day earlier. The charges against Lopez include arson and criminal incitement related to a massive Feb. 12 rally.
Speaking Friday to international media, Maduro called out what he said was a “campaign of demonization to isolate the Bolivarian revolution.” People at Carmona’s service who were also at Tuesday’s rally said they saw a group of up to 50 men on motorcycles, armed with handguns fire directly into the crowd of about 3,000 demonstrators, setting off a panicked stampede through the street. “We were protesting peacefully and this was like a war,” said Emilio Morillo, an 18-year-old university student.
Obama to award Medal of Honor to 24 veterans The ASSOCIATED PRESS
While his replacement Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi is battling the group, Saleh’s loyalists still infusing security and intelligence agencies have quietly backed al-Qaida fighters to keep the government unstable, the officials told the AP. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to talk to the press. “The former regime forged a close relationship with al-Qaida,” said Fares al-Saggaf, an adviser to Hadi. In the southern province of Abyan “entire army camps have been handed over to al-Qaida.” Al-Saggaf said al-Qaida is on the ropes, in large part due to the drone strikes. He said sympathy for the group has fallen, particularly after
about decorations,” said one of those being honored, Melvin Morris of Cocoa, Fla., who was commended for courageous actions while a staff sergeant during combat operations on Sept. 17, 1969, in the vicinity of Chi Lang, South Vietnam. Morris, who is black, said in an interview that it never occurred to him that his race might have prevented him from receiving the Medal of Honor. He said it was a huge surprise when the Army contacted him last May about the review and then arranged for a call from Obama. “I fell to my knees. I was shocked,” Morris said. “President Obama said he was sorry this didn’t happen before.
He said this should have been done 44 years ago.” The other living recipients are Spc. 4 Santiago J. Erevia of San Antonio, cited for courage during a search and clear mission near Tam Ky, South Vietnam, on May 21, 1969; and Sgt. 1st Class Jose Rodela of San Antonio, cited for courage during combat operations in Phuoc Long province, South Vietnam, on Sept. 1, 1969. The Army conducted the review under a directive from Congress in the 2002 National Defense Authorization Act. The law required that the record of each Jewish-American and Hispanic-American veteran who received a Service Cross during or after World War II be reviewed for possi-
ble upgrade to the Medal of Honor. The Pentagon said the Army reviewed the cases of the 6,505 recipients of the Distinguished Service Cross from World War II and the Korean and Vietnam wars and found an eligible pool of 600 soldiers who may have been Jewish or Hispanic. The Army also worked with the National Museum of American Jewish Military History, the Jewish War Veterans of the USA and the American GI Forum, the largest Hispanic-American veterans group, to pinpoint potential medal recipients. Of the 24, eight fought in the Vietnam War, nine in the Korean War and seven in World War II.

OXFORD, Miss. – A fraternity chapter at the University of Mississippi was indefinitely suspended Friday by its national organization and three of its freshman members were kicked out because of their suspected involvement in hanging a noose on a statue of James Meredith, the first black student to enroll in the then all-white college. In a statement, Sigma Phi Epsilon said it suspended the Alpha Chapter at the university and the chapter voted to expel all three men and turn over their identities to investigators. The university tried Friday to question three white students in connection with the vandalism but their attorneys would not allow that to happen without arrest warrants. The three have not been identified.

Group distributing fliers in towns • BALLOT Continued from page A1 Johnsburg, Taxpayers United is working with local members to try to defeat more than a half-dozen referendum proposals in communities across the state this primary season, Tobin said. The fliers being distributed in Huntley and Johnsburg highlight how residents in both towns are taking home less pay and then detail how a majority of property tax dollars go to pay “lavish” salaries and pensions for park district and school district employees. Although the referenda won’t directly go to salary and benefits, the proposals
speak to public officials’ inability to live within taxpayers’ means, Tobin said. District 12 Superintendent Dan Johnson said the criticism is off base and that the referendum would go toward improving the district’s infrastructure for students. Under the proposal, Johnsburg taxpayers will not see property taxes increase from current levels, he said. “Our goal is to educate our community and keep them informed and get them facts, so they can make the best decision ... I know it sounds like a broken record but our emphasis is getting residents the facts,” Johnson said. Huntley Park District officials declined comment, although they added an infor-
mative page to the district’s website on Friday that explains their referendum to residents. Founded in 1976, Taxpayers United started as a taxpayer advocate focused on Illinois policy. The group has since expanded its membership to most Midwestern states and some coastal states. Since forming, the group has helped defeat nearly 200 “property tax increase” referenda, Tobin said. He predicted that referenda in Huntley and Johnsburg will be defeated on March 18 if voter turnout in both towns reach the 50th percentile. “If the fliers circulate widely, then the referendum will be defeated,” Tobin said.
Quinn shuttered Tamms, Dwight prisons in ’12 • PRISONS Continued from page A1 was partly blamed on a scandal involving the early release of hundreds of violent prisoners, a program he shut down for three years. During those years, the population soared by as much as 4,000 inmates. The program resumed last year under stricter rules. Then, in 2012 Quinn announced the closure of Tamms and the Dwight women’s maximum security lockup in Livingston County. Illinois also sold to the federal government a maximum security penitentiary in Thomson that was completed in 2001 but never fully opened because of budget constraints. As for Dillard’s criticism, Quinn’s Corrections Department disagrees that the closure of Tamms makes general prisons more dangerous or that use of the new good-conduct release policy is excessive. Inmates formerly housed at Tamms were held there because they were gang leaders
or caused trouble elsewhere, and are housed in traditional maximum security prisons now. But the Corrections Department says they are held securely and officials contend inmate assaults on staff members are down in the past year. Figures on early release – now known as “Supplemental Sentence Credit” – gathered and analyzed by the AP show that since the program began in March 2013, the agency has released about 2,900 inmates up to six months early for good conduct behind bars. Just more than 4 percent have returned to prison because of violating the terms of their release. And regarding overcrowding, the Corrections Department says there’s enough space to house inmates safely at no risk to the public. They say the 32,000-inmate design capacity is based on outdated housing practices. The candidates say there’s no money to build new prisons – and if it becomes necessary, it must only come after careful consideration of long-
term needs. “Any new prison construction would have to be justified by the long-term facility needs assessment plan I will institute as governor and be included in the state’s longterm capital planning process,” Brady said. Rutherford would consider “how closed correctional facilities could be utilized to alleviate current pressures.” Each is open to the idea of alternative sentencing. “For certain types of crimes and offenders, there can be a place for alternative sentencing,” Rauner said. Tio Hardiman of Hillside, former director of a nonprofit organization that combats violence in the Chicago region, is taking on Quinn in the Democratic primary. In response to the questionnaire, Hardiman said he too believes in alternative sentencing and would support building new prisons to replace the state’s oldest lockups. Quinn declined to participate in the AP questionnaire, saying his views on important state issues are well-known.

Mental health board now full The Northwest Herald Editorial Board offers this week’s thumbs up and thumbs down: Thumbs up: To the McHenry County Board for filling all the seats on the Mental Health Board for the first time in eight months. It’s been a tumultuous time for the Mental Health Board, with the departure of key leaders and board members over the past year and a half. The board still needs to find an executive director, but, hopefully, some needed reform and some unneeded politicking from some County Board members will quiet down long enough to allow the board to function properly. Thumbs down: To the McHenry County College Board of Trustees, for essentially ruling out the option of expanding its health science and fitness programs somewhere other than its main campus off Route 14 in Crystal Lake. Board Chairman Ron Parrish was the only trustee who argued that the college had not done enough to fully vet vacant buildings throughout the county. Pioneer Center for Human Services recently bought a 41,493 square-foot building previously owned and occupied by the now defunct Family Service and Community Mental Health Center for less than half the cost of building it. Is the college certain there’s not a similar deal to be had for its planned expansion? Thumbs up: To Spring Grove Public Works Supervisor Matt Wittum, who leads an innovative group fighting this winter’s harsh snow and ice in a creative way – with a mixture of salt brine and beet juice. It’s kept the roads clear and saved taxpayers an estimated $10,000 a year. Spring Grove was rightfully awarded for its efforts with the American Public Works Fox Valley Branch Excellence in Snow award. Thumbs down: To the proposed bill that would impose a penny-per-ounce tax on sugary beverages in Illinois. As if Illinois residents aren’t taxed enough, some lawmakers want to make you pay more for that Diet Coke you drank at lunch yesterday. This latest attempt to get more of your money is another example of state government wanting to take parenting away from parents. Thumbs up: To the area residents who will take part in Sunday’s Polar Plunge at Lakefront Park in Fox Lake to benefit Special Olympics. The Woodstock Police Department, a team from District 200 and students from Huntley plan to participate after accepting donations to encourage them in taking the cold dip. As of Wednesday afternoon, the Woodstock Police Department had already raised $4,170.
Network news coverage Viewers of nightly network news telecasts can hardly avoid noticing the overwhelming percentage of coverage NBC devotes to the Olympic Games going on in Sochi, Russia. It has to compel anyone to wonder whether the news is being used simply to boost ratings for the rest of the day and night. It’s not that “NBC Nightly News” with Brian Williams has forsaken big stories in the sole interest of building an audience for its very costly and undeniably popular broadcast of the Olympics. But, on a recent Tuesday night, for example, roughly half the 30-minute news broadcast was devoted to what was going on in the Olympics. Every news-gathering organization has to make money – that is beyond dispute. But the best situation is one in which a clear separation between news and business is respected. The Press-Republican (Plattsburgh, N.Y.)
8IT’S YOUR WRITE Zinke the right choice To the Editor: I grew up with parents who taught me that voting makes a difference. And so I vote. On March 18, I will vote for Andrew Zinke, the only candidate for sheriff of McHenry County whose education and experience will lead us into our future with what our community needs. As the mother of a 13-year-old son, I want a future for him that includes being safe when he’s with his friends. Undersheriff Zinke is a family man himself who understands how important it is that crime is controlled. We need a sheriff who has the educational background and the experience of close to 25 years with the sheriff¹s office. He has always worked in our county and not somewhere else. Please vote in the primary election March 18 and make the right choice for the future of our county and our community. Vote Andrew Zinke for sheriff. Tamara DeModica Woodstock
Appalling defiance To the Editor: Back in December, I attended the McHenry County College graduation ceremony. While it was an enjoyable event, something is still bothering me. There was a group of six people sitting in front of me, and when the national anthem started playing and the two servicemen were
walking the flag forward, one lady defiantly sat down and made the other four ladies with her sit as well. Thankfully, the husband remained standing. I am still appalled at this. I have since asked many family members, friends and colleagues whether they have ever witnessed such an act, and no one has. Maybe it was an isolated incident. Many men and women have died fighting for this country and for the freedoms we have. To witness such a blatant, defiant act of disrespect was appalling. If these people are so against what the American flag stands for, why are they here? No one is making them stay. Heck, I’ll even help them pack their bags. Melinda Struthers Huntley
Who is to blame? To the Editor: As promised, a combination of public-sector unions have sued the state of Illinois for modifying the existing pension plans. I don’t blame them one bit. Obligations weren’t met through any fault of the pensioners. That being said, I love how the unions are framing their lawsuit. It would make one think that a third entity exists – the state of Illinois as a third party with a pot of gold. I trust this isn’t a revelation to anyone; the taxpayers are the pot of gold.
How to sound off We welcome original letters on public issues. Letters must include the author’s full name, home address and day and evening telephone numbers. We limit letters to 250 words and one published letter every 30 days. Election-related letters are limited to 150 words. The deadline to submit an election-
This is how we get our ounce of flesh: Insist the unions name those responsible, and add them to their lawsuit. Every legislator that sat on a committee that shirked their fiduciary responsibility and moved pension funding to pet projects should be named. Every legislator that voted “yes” to postponing pension funding, name them in the lawsuit. Every governor that allowed the misappropriations, name them. I’ve got to stop, I’m out of breath. For those that agree with me, I’m sorry, I’m going to burst the bubble. In the state of Illinois, the public-sector union bosses and politicians are frat brothers, joined at the hip by campaign contributions. It ain’t gonna happen. Steve Moore Cary
Keep Zinke’s momentum To the Editor: I have known Andy Zinke, first as his attorney, then his co-worker
related letter is 5 p.m. March 13. All letters are subject to editing for length and clarity at the sole discretion of the editor. Submit letters by: • E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org • Mail: Northwest Herald “It’s Your Write” Box 250 Crystal Lake, IL 60039-0250
and, finally, his friend. I observe daily how he serves tirelessly as undersheriff of McHenry County, upholding in the highest regard the mission to serve and protect the citizens of McHenry County. As candidate for McHenry County sheriff, he has endured shameless attacks. Unfortunately, these types of character assaults have become all too commonplace as part of political campaigns. However, what is uncommon is how Andy has risen above the mudslinging, letting his exemplary record and tireless service to the citizens of McHenry County be his voice. Andy has elevated the office as undersheriff and has a clear plan to further elevate the programs offered by the sheriff’s office, which will benefit all the citizens of McHenry County. Elect Andy Zinke as the next sheriff of McHenry County to continue the momentum he has started. Don Leist Elgin
Growing Illinois’ economy, giving middle class a fair shake As I speak with working families all over the state, I’m hearing an alltoo-common refrain. People who work hard, pay their taxes and play by the rules find it tougher and tougher to get by. They’re upset that while ordinary Illinoisans struggle, big corporations and the very rich aren’t paying their fair share – a view shared by 82 percent of Illinois voters, according to a GBA Strategies poll. They’re right. Economic data substantiates the fact that in Illinois lower- and middle-income families pay about twice the rate in taxes than what the rich pay. That’s simply not fair. Many of these families are at the breaking point, and they’ll be asked to shoulder even more if Springfield doesn’t changes its priorities – fast. Middle- and lower-income families will either go without essential services or face higher local taxes – probably both – unless Springfield confronts the upcoming fiscal cliff
head-on. Expiring tax rates will add $2 billion to the current $6 billion backlog of unpaid bills. Critical investments in public education, infrastructure, public safety, health and human services and more – literally all of our most important priorities – will face cuts unlike anything we’ve ever seen without drastic changes. It shouldn’t be that way, and it won’t if the will of the people is respected. Polls show an overwhelming majority of Illinoisans believe such draconian cuts would have unacceptable consequences for vital programs and services. A Better Illinois is a large and diverse coalition committed to fundamentally altering the way Springfield does business through long-term, structural reform that creates stable and sustainable revenue. Implementation of a fair tax, with lower rates for lower incomes and higher rates for higher incomes would do just that.
Editorial Board: John Rung, Don Bricker, Dan McCaleb, Jason Schaumburg, Kevin Lyons, Jon Styf, Stacia Hahn, John Sahly
GUEST VIEW Kristen Crowell Our reforms represent the opposite of how Springfield governs today – with Band-Aids and budget gimmicks, kicking the can down the road until the next crisis arises. In addition to stability, an even better reason for a fair tax is its impact on lower- and middle-income families and their bottom lines. Implemented properly, a fair tax represents a tax cut – not an increase, but a cut – for the overwhelming majority of Illinois taxpayers over what they currently pay. That’s not what you’ll hear from the out-of-state special interest groups spending obscene amounts of money peddling doomsday scenarios. But they’re just manufacturing strawmen and outright lies to protect big corporations and the rich.
8THE FIRST AMENDMENT
Perhaps most insulting about the current smear campaign by outof-state special interests is that it seeks to silence the voices of Illinois voters – 92 percent of whom believe the tax and budgeting process in Springfield is broken and needs to be fixed, according to GBA. Fair tax legislation simply puts the question of a fair tax to Illinois voters on the upcoming November ballot. It is we, the people, who will ultimately decide. The big money pouring in from outside Illinois actually seeks to deny us the opportunity to vote on a fair tax for ourselves. Thirty-four states and the federal government have abandoned the antiquated, anti-growth tax system that still burdens Illinois today. It’s no coincidence neighboring Midwestern states and others with a fair tax are recovering more quickly from the Great Recession, with far lower unemployment and much stronger job creation.
There’s no surer way to stimulate Illinois’ economy and create new jobs than a fair tax that puts more money in the hands of lower and middle-income taxpayers who will spend it in their local communities. That’s a recipe for short-term stimulus and long-term economic growth. It’s long past time to change our antiquated and unfair tax code, in favor of a fair tax with lower rates for lower incomes and higher rates for higher incomes. Let’s put an end to the constant budgeting-by-crisis in Springfield, and at the same time give the middle class a fair shake. • Kristen Crowell is the executive director for A Better Illinois, a statewide coalition of civic and community organizations, small business, labor and faith leaders, educators, service providers, and tens of thousands of ordinary taxpayers seeking to modernize Illinois tax structure to create greater fairness and longterm economic growth.

MINOR FIRE CLOSES RESTAURANT FRIDAY WOODSTOCK – A minor fire at El Niagara Restaurant in Woodstock on Friday will keep the business closed for a few days while repairs are made. The Woodstock Fire/Rescue District responded to a structure fire at the restaurant at 118 First St. at 10:39 a.m. Friday, according to a news release from Capt. Brendan Parker. Restaurant employees were preparing food when they noticed smoke coming from the ceiling. An employee used a fire extinguisher to extinguish the fire before exiting, according to the release. Crews found a small fire in a wall that extended to the attic space above the kitchen. Fire crews had it under control within a few minutes and no major damage or injuries occurred. The fire appears to have started from the heat of a nearby stove, according to the news release. The restaurant should reopen in a few days.

Waterway agency under fire Lawmakers move to drop department, shift control to state By JEFF ENGELHARDT firstname.lastname@example.org FOX LAKE – A pair of Lake County state senators are pushing to dissolve the Fox Waterway Agency and shift control to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. The proposed legislation, spon-
sored by State Sen. Terry Link, D-Waukegan, and Julie Morrison, D-Deerfield, is designed to eliminate redundancies in government, Link said – an issue he has fought for years. “If you look at my history you’ll see I’ve been an advocate for lesser government,” Link said. “The way
to become more streamlined is to get rid of some of these local units of government.” The responsibilities of the Fox Waterway Agency, such as dredging the Fox River and Chain O’ Lakes, maintaining safe recreation for water activities and promoting tourism, were handled by the Illinois
Department of Natural Resources before 1983. But Ron Barker, executive director for the agency, said the organization was created because the department of natural resources could not handle all the demands of the area.

Service line problem leaves frustrated residents without water By JOSEPH BUSTOS firstname.lastname@example.org CARY – About a week and a half ago, Rob and Hollie Savage came to their home on Hill Street and didn’t have water. They had left the water dripping in some of their sinks, but the pipes still froze. The couple and their 2-year-old son, Kain, have had to shower at other people’s houses, and avoided gathering dirty dishes with no way to wash them. It eventually was determined that the water service line froze under the street from the water main to the couple’s b-box, where the shutoff valve is located. According to village code, all service lines and repairs to those lines from the water main to the house are the responsibility of

a plumber, the couple was able to connect a garden hose to a neighbor’s house to get water. However, the couple say they were mostly frustrated with the village’s response. “They keep saying we’ll see what we can do and they’ll call us back, and they don’t call us back,” Hollie Savage said. An employee from the village did come out when the problem was initially discovered, and the employee checked the meter and said the couple needed to call a plumber. However, after calling multiple times for help and updates, they say the village never followed through with possibly connecting their house to a neighbor. “I would have been perfectly OK if they came out the next day,

Doctors say McGrath’s actions helped save life By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO firstname.lastname@example.org HUNTLEY – Police officer Chuck McGrath didn’t know he would be saving someone’s life when he saw a car veer into oncoming traffic along Route 47 this past summer. McGrath, a four-year veteran at the Huntley Police Department, was traveling south along Route 47 near Regency Parkway in Huntley around 7 a.m. July 20 when a small, red SUV crossed the median into the southbound lanes.

Incident recorded on dashboard camera in squad car • AWARD Continued from page B1 man for a couple of days at the hospital, they directly attributed it to Officer McGrath’s actions in saving his life,” said Police Chief John Perkins. Witnessing the car veer into traffic, McGrath followed the driver to Regency Parkway. The unidentified male told McGrath before losing con-
sciousness that he had been stung by a bee and that he was allergic to the insects. After the driver collapsed to the ground, McGrath performed rescue breaths until the paramedics arrived. The lifesaving incident was captured by a video camera on the dashboard of McGrath’s squad car. Village board members shared the video during a meeting Thursday, before Perkins handed McGrath the department’s Lifesaving Award.
Eight Huntley officers have previously received the honor since the department started the program in 2007. On Thursday, board members and village staff gave McGrath a standing ovation for his actions. “When you see this video, it really hits home on what these guys and girls do and what a great department we really do have,” said Village President Chuck Sass. “I’m actually tearing up talking about it.”
Weather not believed to be factor in either residential fire • FIRES Continued from page B1 25 minutes. The home experienced heavy smoke damage and was deemed uninhabitable. The amount of damage to the home is estimated at $50,000. The cause of the fire is under investigation, but preliminary reports indicate the fire was accidental and appears to have started in the first-floor bathroom. Roughly 15 minutes before
crews were sent to the fire on Lily Lake Road, McHenry Township Fire Protection District units were dispatched to a house fire at 307 W. Riverside Drive in Lakemoor. Firefighters arrived to find a fire in a wall near an outlet. Crews extinguished the fire within five minutes. As a result of the fire, a hole was burned through the wall. Power was shut off to the building and the house was turned back over to the homeowners. Officials determined the
fire was accidental, and the cause was traced to a faulty extension cord that melted. There were no civilian or firefighter injuries in either fire. Weather was not a factor in either incident. Fire departments from Woodstock, Wauconda, Spring Grove, Wonder Lake and Fox Lake, along with the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office, McHenry police and Lakemoor police, assisted the McHenry Township Fire Protection District on the calls.
hooked us up with the water, this is what the code says, let’s figure this out, and really figure it out, instead of saying I’ll get back and not calling us back,” Hollie Savage said. “That’s where we feel our hands are tied.” Hollie said she eventually left a message with Village President Mark Kownick, and she received a phone call back from Village Administrator Chris Clark. Clark said the village left notices hanging on doors of houses in known trouble areas advising residents to keep faucets dripping during the deep freeze, to help keep the pipes from freezing. He said he spoke to the Savages multiple times since their water service froze, and had yet to hear back from them. “We presumed they were working with a plumber,” Clark said. Clark said there have been a number of homes in the village with similar problems, and every situation is different. Some service lines from the water main are 150 feet long, making them difficult to thaw. Sometimes the issue occurs when people go out of town. Whether the village would be able to fix the pipes for a household from the main to the b-box is another issue. Clark said village crews are working on plowing snow and tending to water main breaks, which can take 12 to 18 hours to fix. “Our code is unique,” Clark said. “It states what it states. It’s not just one property owner we would have to work on if this would change ... it’s multiple property owners and contractor costs.” In towns such as Crystal Lake and Lake in the Hills, the municipality is responsible for the service

After being without running water since last Wednesday and with the help of a plumber, the Savages were able to connect a garden hose to a neighbor’s house to get water in their Cary home.
“It was never the expectancy to get them out here with trucks and digging everything up, but just acknowledging something and help us out.” Rob Savage Cary resident without water in home since last Wednesday
line from the water main to the b-box, where the valve to turn water off and on is located. The resident is responsible for the service line from the b-box to the house. Now that the Savages have connected to another house for water, neither their neighbor nor the Savages will be charged for the extra water, Clark said. “Certainly we’re concerned about the family,” Clark said. “No one knows how long the pipes will be frozen.” “We will continue to monitor their property, there’s a temporary fix with the house to house process,” Clark added. Hollie Savage said she would like to see the code changed where the village would be responsible for the service line up to the b-box. “It was never the expectancy to get them out here with trucks and digging everything up, but just acknowledging something and
help us out,” Rob Savage said. Jim Stewart, who is the owner of H.R. Stewart Plumbing, Heating and Cooling in Cary, said water service lines that run under the pavement are more susceptible to freezing. Snow that is on the ground in a yard acts as a good insulator. He said excavating and using steam to thaw a service line is a labor intensive process and can start at $1,300. “A lot of people don’t want to go through the expense of digging up their water service,” Stewart said. Stewart added it would take at least a month for the ground to thaw for good. He added people have a false sense of security when it warms up that the pipes will thaw out themselves. However, the ground can freeze again. “We have stuff that hasn’t frozen in 40 years freezing,” Stewart said.
Agricultural Committee to hear issue Tuesday • WATERWAY Continued from page B1 Stripping local control of the 15 lakes and more than 40 miles of river would be a step back, he said. “When you lose local control you lose people who care about the system,” Barker said. “If you’re not doing something right, you hear about it. You lose that connection with your neighbor when you’re in Springfield.” Barker is not alone in his opposition to the legislation. State Sen. Pamela Althoff, R-McHenry, is a former director for the agency and has said putting control in the state’s hands could have economic consequences for the area if boaters do not receive the service they have come to expect.
The Illinois Boaters Association also has expressed strong opposition to the proposal, issuing a letter from executive director David Zipp that lashes out at Link and Morrison for supporting laws that reduced local control or went against boating. “The Fox Waterway Agency is largely self-sufficient, paying it’s bills through waterway usage fees and profits off its active dredging operations,” Zipp wrote. “The Illinois Boaters Association ... questions why a self-supporting, locally elected and controlled unit of government would be so unfairly targeted when Illinois has the worst credit rating of any state in the nation.” The first gauge on where support lies for the legislation will come Tuesday in
Springfield when it is heard in the Agricultural Committee. Link said he is confident he has the support to move it past the initial stage. Barker said he is “gearing up for battle” in Springfield and would make the trip Tuesday. He said the outcome of that hearing and future steps would be a point of discussion at the agency’s next meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday. The meeting is open to the public and will be at the agency at 45 S. Pistakee Road in Fox Lake. Board chairman Wayne Blake said the agency was approved by a referendum and reapproved 10 years later with 74 percent of Lake County voters in support and 79 percent of McHenry County voters in support. “We were created by referendum, we should die by referendum,” Barker added.

Where Did the Time Go? ■ AUTUMN SIEGMEIER, PLANITNORTHWEST.COM
The 2014 Winter Games wrap up on Sunday, with the torch being passed to Pyeongchang, FEBRUARY 23 South Korea. Doesn’t it feel like we were just JIMMY NICK wondering what the Opening Ceremony really meant, judging team apparel and trying to THE COTTAGE, CRYSTAL LAKE decipher Cyrillic? As I predicted, this was a family affair at our house. Well, the Golfer in Local favorite Jimmy Nick will play a solo blues My Life, Son and I watched the games most show. Starts at 5 p.m. nights. Daughter summed up her thoughts on Thursday night, when she reluctantly was in thecottagepub.net the living room as I was watching the ladies ice skating free dance. “Don’t you like watching some of the competitions?” “No. Once you’ve seen one, you’ve seen ‘em all. It is just the same thing over and over. Skiing, skating, any race.” I chalked it up to her being in a “glass half empty” mood. For those of us with a “glass half full” mindset, FEBRUARY 23 there was plenty of excitement this year. Just BLUE SKIES AND BROADWAY not from the usual sports. Curling seems to COMMUNITY CHURCH OF RICHMOND have become the competition to follow since RICHMOND it was added to the ofﬁcial program in 1998. I remember being aware of it when the Golfer was in Quebec during the 2002 games. “These CaThis concert features Maureen Christine and Michael Bazan performing a variety of selections nadians are crazy about their curling!” This time around Son got hooked on it. More precisely, including great American standards, big band, Broadway show tunes and inspirational selections.

The fact he was able to watch many of the matches live due to his crazy sleep schedule 815-678-6521 for more information also probably led to his new found respect for the game.
Please note; we try to be as accurate as possible with our events but things are subject to change without notice. Check the listing and confirm before heading to an event.
The biathlon and cross country skiing races were the ones that grabbed our attention,
surprisingly. With no knowledge of the sports, we found so many aspects charming. The penalty loops when you missed a shot in the biathlon. The 10K relay race that took an hour and half and had most skiers collapsing on the ﬁnish line. But what really made all of the races nail-bitters was Chad Salmela, the announcer. Chad’s level of enthusiasm was the highest I can remember for a sport. His zeal appears to be a bit divisive though, from the comments I read online. Ironically, I discovered his name on www.awfulannouncing.com. I think this site might become another internet black hole for the Golfer and Son. Well, Sochi is almost one for the books. Their success should give Rio de Janeiro conﬁdence that they can host the 2016 Summer Olympics. Son tells me that things in Brazil are even more sketchy than they were for these games. Quick Update: The Golfer and I went to see the Woodstock Roundup Radio Program at the Starline Factory on Sunday. This is a new live radio show with comedy sketches and live music. A local version of “Prairie Home Companion,” put together by a friend of mine. As we were watching the show, I realized that this was exactly why living in our county is “a good thing,” to quote Martha Stewart. The music was great, the comedy was coming together and all of the performers were local. The show will be back in March, running the second, third and fourth Sundays. If you are in the area, I will be working at the Huntley Expo on Sunday afternoon. Please stop by and say hi. Enjoy the weekend! Autumn

REVIEWS & LOCAL SHOWTIMES OF NEW MOVIES ON SCREEN NOW
“The Lego Movie” STARRING: Will Arnett, Will Ferrell and Elizabeth Banks PLOT: An ordinary Lego mini figure, mistakenly thought to be the MasterBuilder, is recruited to join an effort to stop an evil Lego tyrant from gluing the universe together. RATED: PG, for mild action and some rude, nose-thumbing humor TIME: 1 hour, 34 minutes VERDICT: There are so many things to like about “The Lego Movie”: a great voice cast, clever dialogue and a handsome blend of stop-motion and CGI animation that feels lovingly retro, while still looking sharp in 21st-century 3-D. But the best thing about this movie, which was produced in full partnership with the Danish toymaker famous for its plastic-brick building system, is its subversive nature. While clearly filled with affection for – and marketing tie-ins to – the titular product that’s front and center, it’s also something of a sharp plastic brick flung in the eye of its corporate sponsor. “The Lego Movie” is an homage to the spirit of the iconoclast (i.e., the child). It’s hard not to have fun when the film (written and directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller) is having such a good time with pop culture. “The Lego Movie” pokes fun at anyone who would argue that Lego products are, as one character puts it, “a highly sophisticated, interlocking brick system,” and not simply toys. But it also makes fun of itself, tweaking the conventions of narrative filmmaking, animation and Lego model-making itself. – The
“Monuments Men” STARRING: George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray and Cate Blanchett PLOT: An unlikely World War II platoon are tasked to rescue art masterpieces from Nazi thieves and return them to their owners. RATED: PG-13, for some images of war violence and historical smoking TIME: 1 hour, 58 minutes VERDICT: George Clooney, movie director, has very good taste, and in adapting Robert M. Edsel and Bret Witter’s book by the same title about the Allied forces’ pursuit of art masterpieces stolen by Nazis, he has
LOCAL SHOWTIMES chosen a fascinating historical tale that also bears the intriguing question: What’s the price we’re willing to pay for art? But while a Michelangelo may be worth dying for, “The Monuments Men” is, at best, adequately priced as a movie ticket. Clooney, working from a script he penned with his frequent collaborator Grant Heslov, has fashioned his film as a traditional WWII flick, with a “Great Escape”-like score by Alexandre Desplat and a sentimental kind of soldierly chumminess. Only this band of brothers is more like an assembly of academics. A handful of museum curators and art experts have been gathered by art historian Frank Stokes (Clooney) to investigate and retake the troves of artwork the Nazis have stolen for a mammoth German museum planned by Hitler. The platoon is ill-suited for war but bold in spirit. With this film, Clooney (who enjoys a self-satisfying scene telling off a Nazi) has erected a stiff monument, a worthy if undramatic tribute to those it’s based on. – The
“Pompeii” STARRING: Kit Harington, Carrie-Anne Moss, Emily Browning, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Paz Vega, Jared Harris, Kiefer Sutherland PLOT: Set in 79 A.D., “Pompeii” tells the epic story of Milo, a slave turned invincible gladiator who finds himself in a race against time to save his true love Cassia, the beautiful daughter of a wealthy merchant who has been unwillingly betrothed to the corrupt Roman Senator. As Mount Vesuvlus erupts in a torrent of blazing lava, Milo must fight his way out of the arena to save his beloved as the once magnificent Pompeii crumbles around him. RATED: PG-13 for intense battle sequences, disaster-related action and brief sexual content. TIME: 1 hour, 35 minutes VERDICT: “Pompeii” has a killer ending. Billowing clouds of ash swallow the ancient Roman town, and fireballs rain down from above; whole city blocks slide into the sea, and a tsunami tears through the streets, leveling everything in its path. When Mount Vesuvius erupts – feel free to direct spoiler complaints to Pliny the Younger – the movie is completely absorbing. You just have to sit through more than
an hour of derivative plot and tired dialogue to get there. The similarities between “Gladiator” and “Pompeii” are hard to overstate. In both cases, you have a warrior who’s enslaved after his family is murdered. In both cases, he turns out to have an exceptional talent for killing people, he befriends an African gladiator, and he falls in love with a woman leagues above his social standing. But only in “Pompeii” does the protagonist talk to horses. Milo (Kit Harington from “Game of Thrones”) could be a star if he weren’t stuck in provincial Londinium. Most of the movie is taken up by scene after scene of gladiatorial games, but when Milo isn’t fighting, he’s sharing passionate looks with Cassia and steely glares with Corvus. None of this really matters once the ground begins to shake and Vesuvius wakes from its slumber. Then the movie transitions from a “Gladiator” clone to a less successful Roland Emmerich catastrophe pic. That being said, “Pompeii” does Emmerich one better in the special effects department. Paul W.S. Anderson, best known for the “Resident Evil” franchise and 2011’s “The Three Musketeers,” creates some harrowing simulations of the disaster. It’s enough to make you want him to ditch the story altogether, because as soon as we’re back on the ground with Corvus in a chariot chased by Milo, some of the images are so clearly computer-generated that the drama drains right out of the moment. Harington’s first starring role doesn’t showcase what he can do from an acting standpoint. Harington transformed his body for the role, but here’s the real disaster: His startlingly defined six-pack abs are the most memorable part of his character. – The

that. Because you’ll realize that this movie truly needs a miracle to save it from ending up a soppy, syrupy mess. And, sorry to say, that miracle never comes. In (lukewarm) defense of screenwriter-director Akiva Goldsman (“A Beautiful Mind”), it’s always tricky to adapt a popular novel. For one thing, people who’ve read it have precon-
ceived notions of how things should be. And Mark Helprin’s novel is a long one, meaning the author had room and time to weave his tale, as subtly as he wanted. But Goldsman employs all the subtlety of a wrecking ball. From the beginning, we’re asked to relinquish all sense of logic and reason, and accept that impossible, unexplainable things
are happening. That would all be fine, in a film made with wit and charm and a breezy sense of magic. It’s been done. But not here. The good news? Only this: Colin Farrell is hugely appealing, and his natural charm is almost enough to make you forget the silliness of the rest of it. Almost. – The Associated

Teen is reluctant to share Use coconut oil sparingly, as summer camp with friends better cooking options exist Dear Abby: I’m 14. Last summer I went to camp in a different state with my cousin, “Mary.” I told my friends at school about our adventures, and a couple of them said they want to go there with me next summer. Mary and I don’t get a lot of time together, and camp is one of the only times when I can see her. I don’t want my friends to come. How can I tell them without hurting their feelings? – Torn In Texas Dear Torn: Out-of-state summer camps can be expensive, and although your friends might want to come to yours, it remains to be seen if their families can afford to send them. However, if it turns out they will be going next summer, you should let them know beforehand you may not be seeing a lot of them after you arrive because it’s the only time you get to spend with your cousin during the year. The chances of their being hurt will be less if you tell them in advance. Dear Abby: My husband and I enjoy entertaining and having family over to celebrate birthdays and holidays.

At our celebrations, after everyone is done eating and cake has been served, Jane makes up a large plate of food (without asking) and invites her boyfriend over to eat. Chuck shows up, stands at the kitchen counter and devours the food while complaining about it. Then he helps himself to more and leaves. He never says thank you, never participates in the celebration and, frankly, wasn’t invited to begin with. How should this be handled at the next event? If I confront my sister-in-law, does that make me as rude as she is? My husband doesn’t want to rock the boat. However, it bothers him, and he, too, is put off by it. Any suggestions you have would be appreciated. – Aghast
In New England Dear Aghast: What Jane has been doing is extremely presumptuous, and to call her on it isn’t rude. This should not be “handled at the next event,” it should be handled before the next event. Tell her you prefer any leftover food be saved for your own family, and in the future, she should
not invite Chuck unless she first has cleared it with you. If she can’t abide by your wishes, you should not invite her. Dear Abby: I grew up like most children of the ‘80s and ‘90s, on fast food and propped in front of the TV. I have worked hard to change this lifestyle. I want to raise my future children in a healthier fashion than I was. However, when I bring up the subject of future grandchildren with my mother, she can’t stop talking about how she’s going to spoil them with sugary treats because she’s the grandma, and “that’s what grandmas do.” She knows how I feel about this and knows it upsets me, but she keeps taunting me. I have gone so far as to tell her if she can’t respect me, I will limit her time with the kids. What would you suggest I do? –
Health First In Maine Dear Health First: I don’t know when you plan to have children, but until you do, I suggest you drop the subject. Your mother may be saying this to get a rise out of you. If she’s serious, it will be your job as a parent to enforce the rules you set. But right now, this discussion is premature. • Write Dear Abby at

Dear Dr. K: Coconut oil is all over the grocery store shelves lately. Is it healthier than other cooking oils? Dear Reader: I’ve also noticed coconut oil seems to be catching on these days. I consulted with Walter Willett, the chair of the Department of Nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health, to get his opinion. Here’s what we discussed. Not all cooking oils are created equal. Some are good for your health, while others promote disease. (I’ve put a side-by-side comparison of several common cooking oils on my website, www.askdoctork.com.) Unsaturated fats, which include monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats, provide health benefits. Good sources of monounsaturated fats are olive oil, peanut oil and canola oil. Corn oil, sunflower oil and safflower oil are common examples of polyunsaturated fats. Saturated fats, found in butter and full-fat dairy products, can increase total and LDL (bad) cholesterol – and the risk of heart disease. Coconut oil is about 90 percent saturated fat, so it would seem coconut oil would be bad news for our hearts. But what’s interesting about coconut oil is it also
ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff gives “good” HDL cholesterol a boost. Coconut oil is, obviously, a plant-based oil, and plantbased oils are more than just fats; they contain many antioxidants and other substances. So their overall effects on health can’t be predicted just by the changes in cholesterol levels. Coconut is a wonderful flavor, and there’s no problem using coconut oil occasionally. But for now, I’d recommend using it sparingly. Other vegetable oils are likely healthier than coconut oil. And though coconut oil may be “less bad” than its high saturated fat content would indicate, there are better options. If you do choose coconut oil, be sure to use virgin coconut oil. It doesn’t have the unhealthy trans fats that are found in hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated forms. Finally, remember all cooking oils are high in calories. So when cooking, make sure your drizzle of oil doesn’t become a downpour. You’ll notice my advice in
this column – as in most of my columns – is not definite. I’m not saying you should definitely avoid coconut oil, but I also am cautioning against using it a lot. That kind of advice may be frustrating. But I think you want me to give you my honest assessment of the scientific evidence. And the fact is, as with many of the questions I get, there just isn’t enough evidence to be conclusive. To tell definitively whether any food is healthy or unhealthy would require a study involving thousands of people and lasting 20 to 30 years. And every day for those 20 to 30 years, certain people (chosen at random) would have to eat the food, while others would have to avoid it. I think you can see that would be one hard study to conduct successfully. So I look for what imperfect evidence I can and draw what seem like the most reasonable conclusions. Einstein said it best: “Everything should be made as simple as possible, and no simpler.” • Write to Dr. Komaroff at www.askdoctork.com or Ask Doctor K, 10 Shattuck St., Second Floor, Boston, MA 02115.

PHARRELL TO AUCTION GRAMMY HAT FOR CHARITY
WORTH TALKIN’ ABOUT
Saturday, February 22, 2014 • Section B • Page 10
NEW YORK – Pharrell’s days as a mad hatter may be coming to an end. The famous and buzzed about Vivienne Westwood hat that the producer, rapper and singer wore at the Grammy Awards is being auctioned on eBay to support his charity. Bids had reached more than $10,000 by Friday afternoon for the brown fedora, which became a trending topic on Twitter after Pharrell wore it. Proceeds will support Pharrell’s From One Hand to Another charity. It provides arts and educational resources for kids. He will perform his hit “Happy” at the Academy Awards on March 1. He’ll release the album “G I R L” on March 3.
Hockey loss leaves U.S. stuck with Justin Bieber, Chicago billboard says
Wig designer sues Nicki Minaj, says rapper took his designs ATLANTA – A former wig designer for rapper Nicki Minaj sued the performer Friday, accusing her of walking away from business plans, then making money by selling wigs based on his designs without permission. The lawsuit filed by Terrence Davidson accuses Onika Maraj, who uses the stage name “Nicki Minaj,” and Pink Personality LLC of breaking implied contracts, reneging on discussions to launch a reality TV show and a wig line and misappropriating his wig designs. An attorney for Davidson, Christopher Chestnut, said the designer has suffered at least $30 million in losses. “She lied, cheated, she stole from him,” Chestnut said. “That’s a misappropriation of his intellectual property.” A representative for Minaj did not immediately return a message seeking comment. The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Atlanta. Davidson, who lives in Georgia, said in the lawsuit that he started working as Minaj’s hairstylist in early 2010. He created multiple wigs for the rapper, known for her flamboyant hairpieces, that she wore to a preshow for MTV’s Video Music Awards, during media appearances in London and for the music video “SuperBass.” Davidson said he turned down a contract for a reality TV show at the urging of a Minaj representative. At the time, Davidson said he was discussing doing a joint reality TV show with Minaj and launching a line of wigs with the music star. But months passed, and Davidson said Minaj and her team shut him out. He stopped working as her stylist in early 2013. He says Minaj took his wig designs without his consent and used them to start her own wig line.
CHICAGO – Look like the U.S. gets Justin Bieber. At least one Chicago-area company thinks so. Command Transportation this week put up an electronic sign along one of the area’s major expressways that featured pictures of U.S. and Canadian hockey players with the headline “Loser Keeps Bieber.” The pop star is a Canada native but lives in the U.S. The U.S. lost 1-0 to Canada on Friday at the Sochi Olympics. The sign had a picture of Chicago Blackhawks stars Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews. Kane plays for the U.S. and Toews plays for Canada. A picture of Bieber was in between the hockey players. Command Transportation owner Danny Zamost said he often puts sports-themed messages on his sign. He calls it “good clean fun.”
First lady Michelle Obama pays visit to new ‘Tonight Show’ host Fallon WASHINGTON – Michelle Obama stopped by Jimmy Fallon’s revamped “Tonight Show” to chat about family life in the White House and promote two of her causes, healthy eating and fighting fat. The first lady also put in a plug for her husband’s health care law. Mrs. Obama appeared in a silly skit with Fallon and comedian Will Ferrell. Then, in a sit-down interview Thursday, told Fallon, who’s wrapping up his first week as host of the long-running NBC show, that President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are getting ready to show America “how they move.”
With her signature charm and humor, Mrs. Obama also talked about the challenge of raising two young daughters, ages 12 and 15, in the world of the White House. “They want nothing to do with us,” she laughed. “They really want normalcy and the White House isn’t normal,” Mrs. Obama said. “I’ll say ‘Don’t you want to invite your friends over to watch a movie?’ They say ‘No one wants to come here.’”
Netflix’s ‘House of Cards’ wants Md. to boost tax credits, threatens move ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Netflix political drama series “House of Cards” is demanding millions of dollars more in tax credits from Maryland, or it will go elsewhere. The Washington Post reports that California-based production company Media Rights Capital has pushed back its filming schedule for its third season to see if lawmakers boost credits for film and television projects enough. Last year, lawmakers boosted the $7.5 million annual allocation to $25 million, but they’re divided on whether to do that again. The show’s first two seasons were filmed in Maryland and economic development officials say the show injected more than $250 million into the state economy. Maryland reimbursed Media Rights Capital more than $11 million in tax credits after the first season and that amount could reach $15 million for the second season.

Packers must decide where Bulaga fits best INDIANAPOLIS – The Packers remain the team the Bears need to catch to claim NFC North superiority. As greatly improved as the Bears’ offense was in 2013, Green Bay remains the gold standard in the division. Coach Mike McCarthy and general manager Ted Thompson of the Packers, GM Martin Mayhew of the Lions and the new head coach of the Minnesota Vikings, Lockport’s Mike Zimmer, took their spins in front of the media Friday at the NFL Scouting Combine. According to McCarthy, Marian Central graduate Bryan Bulaga is a huge ingredient to the Packers’ success.
BEARS INSIDER Hub Arkush “This is the best group of offensive linemen, from a depth standpoint, that we’ve had in my time in Green Bay so there’s a lot of good things to build off of on offense.” Part of the Packers coach’s confidence stems from the improvement in that unit this past season while Bulaga spent the entire year on injured reserve after tearing an ACL in training camp.
BOYS BASKETBALL: HUNTLEY 39, JACOBS 35
Egekeze comes up big after slow start
McCarthy believes Bulaga is on pace for a full recovery in 2014. “Bryan Bulaga is in Florida currently and his rehab is ... everything’s on schedule,” McCarthy said. “My communications with him are that he’s on time and he’s hit all his targets.” What is not as clear is where Bulaga will line up in 2014. After being drafted in the first round by the Packers in 2010, he moved into the starting lineup at right tackle the fifth week of the season and went on to become the youngest player to start in a Super Bowl at the age of 21. Bulaga was the Packers’ best of-
fensive lineman in 2011 and through the first half of 2012 before a hip injury landed him on season-ending injured reserve. McCarthy was so pleased with Bulaga’s play as his “best offensive lineman” that he was shifted to left tackle in training camp last season before tearing his knee on Family Night in a team scrimmage before the first exhibition game. Where will he line up this year? McCarthy told me that is yet to be decided.

CLASS 4A CARY-GROVE REGIONAL
PR’s dream is reality
Raiders clinch 4th straight Valley title By CHRIS CASEY firstname.lastname@example.org ALGONQUIN – Heading to Jacobs for a basketball game is never an easy task for a visiting team. But when you are a rival school, as Huntley is, the task becomes that much harder. The Red Raiders were able to hold off Jacobs, clinching their fourth straight Fox Valley Conference Valley Division championship with a Amanze 39-35 win. Egekeze It wasn’t pretty. Most of the points were hard to come by, and halftime adjustments were a key for Huntley (17-7 overall, 9-2 FVC Valley) to create opportunities for leading scorer Amanze Egekeze. “I knew [Egekeze] would make amends in the second half,” Huntley coach Marty Manning said. “Amanze is his own worst critic. I knew, after he struggled a bit in the first half, he would come out strong, and in the second half, he was unstoppable.” Egekeze led all scorers with 24 points, including 16 in the second half. “We knew it would be loud and get intense at times,” Egekeze said. “We were able to keep our composure well, especially when they made a run at the end. I wanted it this year more than ever. It’s fun to win these types of games, and I’m glad we could pull this one out.”

BULLS 117, NUGGETS 89
Bulls make it 5 wins in row By JOE COWLEY email@example.com
Senior Jenna Mychko, a Huntley graduate, is batting a team-high .429 this season for Illinois (8-2).
Mychko, Illinois softball start fast Less than a month into the college softball season, the University of Illinois has put together an impressive résumé. The team’s 8-0 start marked the best beginning of a season in school history. During a 5-0 weekend at the season-opening Rosemont Rumble this month, the team showed it could react to a curveball off the field as well. After winning its final game – 4-1 against Central Michigan – Illinois (8-2) was delayed in its return to Champaign by a disabled bus. With no transportation available, the Illini made the best of the situation by eating lunch in a large group, laughing, joking and watching Jenna Mychko other games. “We love being together, and being around each other,” said senior catcher Jenna Mychko, a Huntley graduate. “We’re telling jokes all the time. We have a good time.” As one of only two seniors on the squad, Mychko said the team has benefited from a youthful roster of exuberant personalities. Mychko has enjoyed expanding her leadership on the team, which includes 12 freshmen and sophomores. “If I’m confident behind the plate, our pitcher is going to be more confident and our infielders are going to be more confident,” she said. Mychko’s confidence has grown immensely on offense. Through 10 games, she leads the Illini with a .429 batting average and a .586 on-base percentage. Her six RBIs is halfway to her total from last season, when she started 34 games.
ON CAMPUS Barry Bottino “I’m more confident in myself,” she said. “We have a new hitting philosophy this year and it’s really helped us. We’re more disciplined, but we’re always more aggressive earlier in an at-bat.” With Mychko’s help, Illinois ranks third in the Big Ten this season with a .333 team batting average and a .482 slugging percentage. Even while batting .235 last season, Mychko was a strong defensive presence. Over the past 44 career starts, she has made one error. Mychko credits her development to a busy offseason playing for the Elgin-based Illinois Lightning summer team. Her demanding offseason continued over the holidays when she and her father worked out at Huntley High School every day. “We did a lot of hitting and catching drills,” she said. “It’s nice to see the hard work paying off.” Vaulting victor: Ames, Iowa, has been a special place this season for Minnesota pole vaulter Zach Siegmeier. The Crystal Lake Central graduate won the Iowa State Classic indoor track and field title in his event last week with a vault of 17 feet, 6½ inches. Two weeks earlier, Siegmeier won the event at Iowa State’s Bill Bergan Invitational with the same mark of 17-6½. Siegmeier, a senior, posted a career-best vault of 17-9, which ranks second in the Big Ten Conference and 14th nationally this season, Feb. 7 at
the Thundering Herd Classic in Fargo, N.D. Freshman finds groove: McHenry East grad Alexa McClaughry is batting a team-best .438 as the starting shortstop for D-II University of Illinois-Springfield’s softball team. McClaughry, a freshman, ranks second on the team with seven hits and four runs scored for the Prairie Stars (4-2). McClaughry has scored a run in four of the team’s six games and posted a season-best 2-for-3 performance at the plate in a 4-1 loss last weekend to Northwest Missouri. Senior night star: D-III Lake Forest College women’s hockey goaltender Stacey Dierking enjoyed a memorable senior night last weekend. Dierking (Crystal Lake Central) made 22 saves to help the Foresters (13-4-3) beat Northern Collegiate Hockey Association rival Adrian (Mich.), 6-3. The victory made Dierking only the second goalie in the program’s history to achieve 30 career wins. For the season, Dierking is 5-2-2 with a .882 save percentage. Huskies happenings: Northern Illinois junior women’s tennis player Nelle Youel (Crystal Lake Central) is off to a 4-0 start with partner Arantza De La Torre as the No. 1 doubles team for the Huskies. Youel is 1-3 as the No. 1 singles player this season for NIU, which is 3-1 in dual meets. • Barry Bottino writes a weekly column and a blog about local college athletes for the Northwest Herald.

CHICAGO – This is more than just a five-game winning streak for the Bulls. This is playing out to be an awakening. An offense that has been last in the league this season with just 92.3 points a game has suddenly averaged 99 points a game in the streak. A defense that has been far too inconsistent has been handcuffing the opposition to just 85.6 points a game since the win in Los Angeles on Feb. 9. While there was all sorts of doom and gloom about the season-ending injury to Derrick Rose (right knee) and the trade of Luol Deng, there is now a team playing its best basketball of the season, evident by the 117-89 win over the Denver Nuggets on Friday night. So of course coach Tom Thibodeau was asked if Rose would have to adjust his game to fit in with a new-look core when he was ready to return next season. “Not necessarily,’’ Thibodeau said. “I always believe this: Great players will always figure it out. So I think it adds to what we already have. Derrick and Joakim have always had great chemistry. It does give us a little more flexibility. There are things we can do and we were starting to do with them when [Rose] was

playing two years ago. That’s one of the advantages of a guy like Derrick. He can play on the ball or off the ball. And he does both every effectively. I don’t see that being a problem. If anything, it’s a plus.’’ In the 10 games Rose did play this season, what became noticeable was that off-theball skill that the Bulls wanted to try and take advantage of. There were spots when Kirk Hinrich was the primary ball-handler, with Rose playing an almost two-guard role. That’s why drafting a point guard in this year’s June draft shouldn’t be ruled out or even questioned if it happens, especially with Thibodeau leaning on that two-point guard attack late in games as far back as last season with Hinrich and Nate Robinson. He again leaned on it against Denver, especially when Jimmy Butler was lost for the game in the first half because of a rib contusion. In stepped D.J. Augustin, however, shooting 5-for-7 from beyond the 3-point line to finish with a team-high 22 points.

Packers will consider NFL COMBINE Bulaga on line NIU’s Lynch: ‘I’m a quarterback first’ moving ARKUSH By KEVIN FISHBAIN firstname.lastname@example.org
INDIANAPOLIS – At the same time Johnny Manziel addressed the largest media gathering so far at the NFL Combine, another quarterback prospect responded to a litany of doubts. Jordan Lynch is trying to get drafted and respected as a quarterback – a more difficult battle than surefire first-rounder Manziel’s attempts to shed his “party boy” image. Lynch was confident, if not cocky, about his abilities to play quarterback in the NFL when talking to reporters at Lucas Oil Stadium. “I’m a quarterback first. I’ve been proving people wrong ever since I started playing, and there’s no doubt in my mind I’ll continue to do that,” Lynch said. “What I tell teams is that they’re going to make a huge mistake if they don’t put me at quarterback.” The former Northern Illinois quarterback was quick to remind us, however, that he’s also a team player. If a
Northern Illinois’ Jordan Lynch answers a question Friday during a news conference at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis. position switch is what’s required, he’ll do it. “Anything to get my foot in the door,” he said. “If they want me to run down a kickoff and butt heads, I’ll do that. I’m a team guy, [I will] buy into any system.” After his performance at the East-West Shrine game, some thought a move to safety would be in Lynch’s future. But he’s sticking with quarterback and said if he
did have to change positions, he’d prefer to stay on offense. “In my head, I’d like to stay on offense, running back or slot receiver,” he said. “I feel like I need the ball in my hands, I’m a playmaker.” As of Friday, Lynch had met with 10 teams, including the Bears. He will throw for teams Sunday. Two years ago, another NIU product came to the combine trying to get noticed alongside BCS school quarterbacks. “Going to the combine in itself can be a very stressful thing, but when you go as a [Mid-American Conference] quarterback, you’re fighting uphill,” Chandler Harnish told the Fort Wayne News Sentinel this week. Lynch said Harnish, the player he backed up for three years, has helped him along the way. “He kind of walked me through the combine, things to look forward to, this and that,” he said. “He helped me one day with my X’s and O’s and just watching some film and going over some stuff.”
Harnish was Mr. Irrelevant, the final pick in the 2012 draft, but there was no question about his position. Lynch has to fight the stigma of coming from a MAC school and his potential under center, but he wants to match his college teammate. “I hope to have the same journey [Harnish] had,” Lynch said. When quarterbacks got measured, Lynch came in at 6-foot, he said, maybe a little taller, which is taller than Manziel and a good sign. However, the measurements added another trait to the list of reasons to doubt Lynch. His hands measured 8 7/8 inches, tied for the smallest of any quarterback, where hand size is a big emphasis. At this point, however, Lynch knows how to respond to any doubt. “I don’t buy into any of that stuff,” he said. “I’m a winner, a competitor. I find a way to win. I can hold a football with one (hand) and throw it. I guess that’s all you really need to know.”

“I told Bryan when he left his (2013) exit interview that I would be in touch with him to let him know what our plan is, whether it’s the left side or the right side,” McCarthy said. “That decision will be made once we get a little further into the cut-ups. With our coaching staff changes, we’re probably about five days behind where we’d like to be right now. “Once we get a little further down the line, get through protections, then we’ll make the final decision on right or left, and at that time I’ll communicate it with Bryan.” Later, he told the Green Bay Press-Gazette that David Bakhtiari would remain at left tackle. When pressed on whether that meant Bulaga would return to right tackle and Derek Sherrod would play one or both spots, McCarthy told Press-Gazette reporter Pete Dougherty, “We haven’t had a final decision on that, but that’s logical thinking.”
McCarthy saying Bakhtiari will remain at left tackle could mean Bulaga will move spots but also could mean Bulaga will remain at left tackle and push Bakhtiari for the starting spot there. As for Zimmer, although he isn’t quite home, he’s delighted to be back in the “neighborhood.” “I do still have some friends there, in the South Chicago suburbs especially,” Zimmer said. “You know, I grew up watching the NFC North, the Bears and the other people in the division. So that’s what football was to me.” It is probably just coincidence that Minnesota GM Rick Spielman and assistant GM George Paton each got their NFL starts with the Bears, and it’s highly unlikely that any of the three will be made welcome when they come home with the Vikings this fall.

Somehow, McDowell in Match Play quarterfinals MARANA, Ariz. – Not even Graeme McDowell can believe he’s still alive in the Match Play Championship.
For the third straight round, McDowell pulled off another improbable escape to advance to the quarterfinals Friday at Dove Mountain. This time, all he had to do was win the last two holes against Hunter Mahan to force overtime and make a 20-foot par putt to stay in the match on the 20th hole. He won with a birdie on the 21st hole.
Jordan Spieth beat Matt Kuchar. Ernie Els ousted Jason Dufner, Victor Dubuisson beat Bubba Watson, and Rickie Fowler won on the last hole against Sergio Garcia. The other winners were Louis Oosthuizen and Jason Day.

BOYS BASKETBALL: CL SOUTH 36, CARY-GROVE 33
Gators top C-G, gain confidence
8INSIDE WRESTLING Athlete of the week CHRISTIAN BRUNNER Dundee-Crown, so. Brunner followed up a Fox Valley Conference championship with a DeKalb Regional title and a second-place finish at the Barrington Sectional to qualify for state for the first time. At state, Brunner, joined the top three ranked wrestlers in the state in the semifinals.
South’s defense seals FVC Valley victory By JEFF ARNOLD email@example.com CRYSTAL LAKE – Given his Crystal Lake South boys basketball team’s propensity for finding ways not to finish games, all coach Matt LePage could do was hope. The Gators had managed to protect a lead for much of Friday night, including during a stretch when South played more not to lose than to win. But when a last-second CaryGrove 3-point attempt bounced off the back of the rim, LePage and the Gators could finally exhale after holding off the Trojans in a 36-33 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division victory. “We just wanted to finish one out,” said senior Steve Thomas, whose free throw with 12.5 seconds remaining pushed South’s lead to three points. “I feel like we did that. “I think [C-G] is the No. 1 seed in our regional and, if we can beat the No. 1 seed, we can beat anyone.” South (15-10 overall, 4-7 FVC Valley) clung to a 3-point lead when C-G called a timeout with 3.3 seconds remaining. Trojans coach Ralph Schuetzle drew up a play, trying to get the ball to his best shooter, Jason Gregoire. But when the Gators took away C-G’s first option, Tyler Szydlo – who led the Trojans with 10 points – was forced to take what the Trojans hoped was the game-tying shot. Like many of G-G’s shots Friday night, the final one missed its mark. The Trojans (15-11, 7-5) managed only three points in the second quarter – a Gregoire 3-pointer with 29 seconds left in the first half – ending an eight-minute stretch when the Trojans went 1 for 10 from the field. Despite that, C-G had its chances. “We just couldn’t seal it, we couldn’t finish it out,” Schuetzle said. “Every possession is key and you can’t turn it over because maybe they get an easy basket. Maybe that basket is the back-breaker. “If we don’t hit open shots, we’re not going to win. We had open shots tonight.” South led by as many as 11 points, but found itself playing from behind in the fourth quarter after Devin McDonough gave the Trojans a 31-30 lead with 3:03 remaining. The lead changed hands twice more before Chris Mahoney put the Gators back on top for good with a basket with 2:16 remaining. Thomas’ free throw closed out the scoring before South’s defense got the stop it needed on the game’s final play. “This is a big, big win for us,” LePage said.

GIRLS GYMNASTICS STATE MEET
Highs, lows for PR co-op Lyons Township assured of repeat as team champion By JOE STEVENSON email@example.com PALATINE – Emotions ran the gamut for Prairie Ridge’s co-op girls gymnastics team. There was sophomore Kendall Rumford, who finished sixth allaround and was beaming from ear to ear. And there was junior Dylann Perrone, who also was thrilled after turning in her best performance Friday at the IHSA Girls Gymnastics State Meet preliminaries at Palatine High School. Then, there was the Wolves’ star, Rachael Underwood, normally one of the state’s top competitors and a rock at the top of the lineup. Underwood struggled through one of her roughest meets and finished 13th in the all-around. Defending champion Lyons Township is assured a repeat team title after the finals, which begins at 5:45 p.m. Saturday. The Lions have 150.550 for a team score and Prairie Ridge, which draws athletes from CaryGrove, Crystal Lake Central and Prairie Ridge, in second at 148.825. Teams can increase their scores in the finals, but the Wolves do not have enough competitors to catch Lyons. Underwood, a junior from CaryGrove, was one of the all-around favorites after finishing third as a freshman and tied for second last year. But she fell on her uneven bars routine, then fell on the balance beam and stepped out of bounds in floor exercise. Her 36.55 score was al-

But I feel awful.” Underwood had trouble forgetting about her first fall on bars. She caught the lower bar too low and then missed a maneuver where she was supposed to grab the top bar. She qualified for finals only in vault at 9.775, the highest preliminary score. The Wolves’ Maddie Solka also qualified at 9.525. “It was exactly mental,” Underwood said. “Once I fell once, I carried it over to the next event. I’m not hap-
py with that.” Prairie Ridge co-op coach Lee Battaglia figured Underwood would have won all-around if she had stayed clean on her four routines. “It just wasn’t her night,” he said. “She just had a bad meet, you have those nights. Dylann [Perrone] had the best meet of her life. Kendall [Rumford] had the best meet of her life. Jada [Berkland] came through big for us.” Prairie Ridge’s team score was its best of the season even with Underwood having a subpar meet. Rumford scored 37.3 all-around for sixth, Perrone had 36.925 for 10th and Solka scored 36.875 for 11th. “I never thought I’d be sixth allaround,” Rumford said. “I was so stoked for my team and for myself. I felt like I left everything out there.” After her balance beam routine, Rumford nearly tackled her mother, assistant coach Lisa Rumford. “She’s my biggest supporter and she gets so emotional,” Kendall Rumford said. “I’ll do anything to make her happy. I almost cried on the beam myself.” Perrone said it was the first time she had hit all four routines cleanly this season. “The hard work is paying off for me,” Perrone said. “There are meet where I hit some and fell some. This was our team high, I’m extremely proud of our team.” Jacobs’ Ally Riedel, who suffered multiplebrokenbonesinherrightfoot a year ago, competed as an individual in all-around and was 15th at 36.425.
R-B, CLC each send pair Quarterfinal losses force to championship matches WRESTLING STATE FINALS
• WRESTLING Continued from page C1 spin around quickly in that situation. “Wow, am I going to do this?” Hernandez said he remembered thinking during overtime. “All I thought about was Carter.” Hernandez repeatedly said this season his goal was to win state. He knew he was a dark horse coming into the tournament but didn’t want to just make it to state. “It feels way better than I dreamed,” Hernandez said. “Coming in it looked like no way I could make it out.” Richmond-Burton and Crystal Lake Central both got two through to the finals. R-B’s Grant Sutton defeated Peoria’s Ricky Stringfellow, 5-0, at 126 and Garrett Sutton won a 19-7 major decision against Troy Triad’s Cole Witzig. Mike Zelasco won for the Tigers at 182 with a 2-1 decision against Springfield’s Harrison Williams and Andrew Marsden pinned Bloomington’s Austin Weltha in 1:33. Marsden will meet Montini’s Anthony Ferraro in the finals, a rematch of the Lakes sectional final that Marsden lost. Zelasco will seek some revenge against Washington’s Colin Carr, who he lost to earlier in the season in a dual. Grant Sutton will also try and exact some revenge for his only loss of
the season. He’ll face Montini’s Kegan Calkins in the finals who he lost to in the Lakes Sectional semifinals. “We both know what’s coming,” Grant Sutton said of the finals. “I’m really looking forward to this match.” It will be Grant Sutton’s first time in the finals. “Workinig to finally get here, it’s been a great ride,” Grant Sutton said. Garrett Sutton returns to the finals after winning state last year at 152. That finals experience will help him even if he doesn’t know that State Farm bought the naming rights to where he will be wrestling. “It’s always a big deal. It’s Assembly Hall,” Garrett Sutton said. “The only difference is I know what needs to be done (to win).” Crystal Lake South’s Eric Barone lost a controversial ultimate tiebreaker that brought a chorus of boos from the crowd directed at the officials. Barone gave up a reversal in the second tiebreaker that started the boos but escaped to send it to the ultimate tiebreaker, where he was unable to escape from the down position. Crystal Lake Central’s Lenny Petersen (120), Mike Petersen (132) and Romeo McKnight all lost their semifinal matches and will move to the consolation semifinals. Cary-Grove’s Mike Cullen also moves to the consolation semifinals with a loss in the semis Friday evening.
wrestlers to refocus fast By ROB SMITH email@example.com
CHAMPAIGN – From the opening match of the season, Crystal Lake South’s Nick Gil had a solitary goal: win state. When he lost, 4-3, in the 138-pound Class 3A quarterfinals to Wheaton Warrenville South’s Qarin Johnnic, he didn’t have much time to wallow in the loss. The opening round wrestlebacks followed directly after the quarterfinals. “Once I got my head together, I felt like I was focused,” Gil said. “Obviously, it wasn’t my goal.” Gil won, 8-3, against Niles West’s Isaac Reinemann to reach the consolation quarterfinals, where he will wrestle Alton’s Phyllip DeLoach on Saturday. As much as it pained him to get bumped out of the championship bracket, Gil was forced to refocus his goal to taking third place. It would be a personal best as he placed fourth at state last year. “You’ve got to be a man about it and go into wrestlebacks with a positive attitude,” Gil said. Overall from the area, 14 wresters are still alive from Class 2A either in the consolation or main draw and 3A has five still wrestling. Harvard’s Zach Martin (195) and Adam Freimund (285) both won their consolation first-round matches. Martin (24-16) defeated Troy Triad’s John McK-
inney, 2-1, and Freimund pinned La Salle’s Jonathon Hewitt in 1:33. Hornets coach Tim Haak said preparing to wrestle after losses is a big part of wrestling, especially during the grind of the state tournament. “Those are the things you prepare for during the season,” Haak said. “It’s physcial as well as mental.” Haak was pleased, if not a little surprised, with Martin’s two wins, especially against McKinney, who had 38 wins. “That’s the great thing about athletics,” Haak said. “We’ll put him back out there and watch him.” After placing fifth at the Lakes Sectional at 120, Hampshire’s Wylie Allen did not have a guaranteed spot at state. As an alternate, his name was called and Allen got to wrestle at state. After losing in the first round, Allen came back to win his first consolation round, 5-2, against Simeon’s Deonne McDonald to advance to the consolation quarterfinals. Crystal Lake Central’s Logan Lundelius (138) and Kyle Fugiel (170) both won their first-round consolation matches after losing in the championship quarterfinals. After losing in the quarterfinals to SirRomeo Howard from East St. Louis, Marian Central’s Nick Remke came back to win in the first consolation round. Remke eked out a, 2-0, decision against Dixon’s Kylian Lally.
Antioch Dual Team Sectional 6 p.m. Tuesday Harvard produced a total team effort at the Hampshire Regional, qualifying nine for sectionals and winning two individual championships, to win the team title and qualify for the dual team state series. Harvard, the No. 10-ranked team by Illinoismatmen.com will face Lakes, ranked No. 25. The winner moves on to Bloomington on March 1 to wrestle in the dual team state quarterfinals against either Oak Forest or Riverside-Brookfield. – Rob Smith
BOYS BASKETBALL: MARENGO 54 RICHMOND-BURTON 51
Marengo closes gap on R-B By KEVIN MEYER firstname.lastname@example.org RICHMOND – With a win against Marengo on Friday night, the Richmond-Burton boys basketball team could have taken a two-game lead in the Big Northern Conference East Division with only two games left. Marengo, which came into the game two games behind R-B, had other ideas. Zach Knobloch of Marengo hit the game-winning 3-pointer with five seconds left to give the Indians a 54-51 win. “That was a good team we beat there, and we were fortunate enough to execute down the stretch to get the win,” Marengo coach Will Benson said. “I’m certainly proud of our kid’s effort regardless of the result, and that was just a good high school basketball game.” The teams exchanged the lead a few times in the final quarter, but it was Knobloch who had the final say. After a defensive stand, the Indians (18-10, 8-3 BNC East) got the ball back with 30 seconds left and held on to it until the final five, when Knobloch buried his third 3-pointer of the quarter to give Marengo the lead. R-B’s Sam Kaufman had one last chance to tie it at the buzzer but the effort came up short. “We came out in the second half fired up and wanted to win real badly,” Knobloch said. “We played hard with everyone contributing to the team. They gave me the last open shot and I knocked it down with confidence.” Knobloch finished with a team-high 20 points, including six 3-pointers. The Indians ran out to a 13-8 lead when Kaufman went on a run. Kaufman scored the next nine points, including two 3-pointers, a dunk and two steals, to turn a five-point deficit into a four point R-B lead. After trailing by seven in the third, Marengo battled back with a 14-6 run that gave them the 39-38 lead late in the third. Koty Kissack completed the rally for Marengo after he was thrown to the ground and still managed to convert his twopoint basket. Kissack was big for Marengo, scoring nine of his 13 points after the half. Richmond-Burton’s lead over Marengo and Burlington Central is now cut to one game in the loss column.

Castro’s admiration for Jeter unchanged By GORDON WITTENMYER email@example.com
NORTHWEST HERALD Karissa Gonio’s bowling season isn’t over just yet. After being happy with just making it to state, the DundeeCrown senior rolled a six-game series of 1,255 during the first day of the IHSA Girls Bowling State Final on Friday. The top 30 individual bowlers Karissa advance to SatGonio urday’s second day and Gonio slipped in at No. 30 by five pins. She averaged a 209.2 over the span of the six games on Friday including a high-game of 245. She finished the day 190 pins off Waubonsie Valley senior Julia Bond who finished the day in first. It was the second time in consecutive weekends that Gonio advanced in the state tournament by holding the final spot. She earned the fifth and final individual spot at the Feb. 15 Zion-Benton Sectional to advance to Friday’s preliminary round of the two-day state tournament.

Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro fields grounders during spring training Friday in Mesa, Ariz.
MESA, Ariz. – The last time the Cubs had the Yankees on their home schedule, the Cubs put shortstops Starlin Castro and Derek Jeter on a billboard together near Wrigley Field during the winter to promote the upcoming season. That was three years ago, and Castro welcomed the comparisons to his idol – then went on to join Jeter at the All-Star Game that summer, before finishing as the National League hit king that season. Now when Castro talks about Jeter, a news loop of the Yankee shortstop’s retirement plays in the background on a clubhouse TV. “One of the good ones is gone,” said Castro, a two-time All-Star, who has held up Jeter as a role model and who has even drawn occasional comparisons to Jeter from team officials – if only for Jeter’s high error totals early in his career and for the public scrutiny Jeter gets as the key figure on a big-market team.
“He’s awesome,” said Castro, who met Jeter through their All-Star appearances opposite each other in 2011 and ‘12. When they met, “He told me that I am a good player, to keep playing hard and to play good,” said Castro, who was too young, and maybe a little too in awe, to ask for an autograph or memento. The good news for Castro is the Cubs play the Yankees twice in interleague play this year, including the third week of the season in the Bronx – which also will offer a reunion with mentor and former Cub Alfonso Soriano. “Maybe this year I’ll ask when we go to Yankee Stadium,” he said. “I’ll tell Sori to ask him to sign a jersey for me.” Castro, 23, plans to make a return to the All-Star game this year, too. And get back on the career track he once talked about when bringing Jeter into the conversation. Not that he plans to replace Jeter on the throne of big-league shortstops after the Yankee captain’s retirement. “I’ll try to be,” he said. “I won’t say I’ll be [the next Jeter]. But I’ll try to be like him.”
WHITE SOX SPRING TRAINING
Sox still high on outfield prospect Thompson By DARYL VAN SCHOUWEN firstname.lastname@example.org GLENDALE, Ariz. – Don’t forget about outfielder Trayce Thompson. Just because the fleet power hitter has descended in most top-five White Sox prospects lists (he’s still in most top 10s) doesn’t mean Thompson is falling out of favor in the organization. “I think he has a chance to be a superstar,’’ said Sox director of player development Nick Capra. “He has all the tools. If things go right I think he’ll hit for average and hit some home runs, and he’s an above average defender in the outfield who throws the ball well. And he can steal a base. He does a lot of things.’’ A 2009 second-round draft pick, the 6-3, 215-pound Thompson, the son of
former NBA veteran Mychal Thompson and the brother of the Golden State Warriors’ Klay Thompson, started strong at Double-A Birmingham last season and seemed destined for a September callup but had a terrible second half, batting .157 in July and .185 in August. He recovered with a strong postsea- Trayce son, however. His final Thompson 2013 numbers: .229, 15 homers, 73 RBI, 25 stolen bases over 135 games. “I was doing well toward the end of June and I went in a slump for a series, I started to press and I thought about about hits instead of just hitting the ball hard,’’ Thompson said. “It was me
trying to do too much, which is the story of my career when I’m playing bad.’’ The learning curve in the minors involves dealing with the struggle and difficulty of the game. But “I feel like the more you think about how hard it is, the harder you make it on yourself – you almost have to trick yourself,’’ Thompson said, casting a glance around the Sox’s clubhouse at Camelback Ranch. “That’s why these guys are humble.’’ There are mechanical flaws that need attention, Capra said. Thompson likely returns to Birmingham with hopes of advancing to Triple-A Charlotte. If all goes well, a September callup isn’t out of the question. “I’m a big fan of Trayce,’’ Capra said. “You have to be with the tools he has. He can go and get ’em in center field.
He makes plays look easy out there, on balls you don’t think he’ll get to.’’ “At some point in your career it’s time to turn those tools into production,’’ Thompson said. “I’m young in the scheme of things but it’s time to go.’’ Notes: Right fielder Avisail Garcia had an in-grown toenail removed and will likely miss another day, and infielder Jeff Keppinger’s right shoulder that ailed him last year is limiting him somewhat. • Right-hander Nate Jones (gluteus strain) has resumed activity playing catch and should be throwing off a mound soon. • Left-hander John Danks continued to make good impressions in the first week of camp. “Johnny looked good today,’’ manager Robin Ventura said.

Boeckh scores 9 for Jacobs in loss • HUNTLEY Continued from page C1 That Jacobs run cut the Huntley lead to two with 1:32 remaining. Huntley turned the ball over on its next possession, giving the Golden Eagles a chance to tie or take the lead. Egekeze’s long frame altered a shot from senior Ben Murray, allowing the Red Raiders to regain possession. “They made plays late,” Jacobs coach Jim Roberts said after the game. “We played well enough defensively. There were just a cou-
ple small things we weren’t able to overcome, and small things will win a game like this. It’s a tough one to swallow for sure.” The Golden Eagles (14-12, 7-4) were led by junior guard Cory Boeckh, who had nine points, making three 3-pointers. Cameron Krutwig added eight points for Jacobs. “We knew he was in the game to shoot 3s,” Manning said of Boeckh. “He doesn’t need very much space to get his shot up. I think we played him pretty well defensively. He found some openings and
knocked down a couple big shots for them.” Huntley’s Zach Gorney knocked down a 3 on the first possession of the second half, tying the score at 15. The next possession for Huntley was a jump hook shot for Egekeze to give the Red Raiders a lead that they would never give up. “I’m proud of the way our kids fought tonight,” Manning said. “Jacobs is a good team, and this is always a tough place to play. This is a big win for us heading down the stretch.”
Drain scored nine baskets in the low post thanks to a steady parade of entry passes from teammates such as Le Beau, Kelly Klendworth, Aly Clark and Kirsten Voel-Pel. Clark added 13 points for Prairie Ridge, while Le Beau finished with eight. “It’s such a great feeling,” said Drain, one of four seniors on the team. “My heart is still racing. It’s like I want to play another quarter, but I’m glad we’re not.” Instead, Drain and her teammates posed for pictures with their new hardware, a heavy wooden plaque with “Regional Champions” printed in large, black letters. Wolves coach Rob Baker said his players deserved all of the credit for their success. “I knew we had a group that was going to be good,” Baker said. “The thing with this group is their attitude. They just want to have fun. “We talked before the game. We said when the game was over, we weren’t going
to be crying. We were going to have fun tonight, and if we lost, we were going to lose but we weren’t going to be upset. We were going to have fun and we were going to give it everything we had.” Instead, it was the Trojans who quietly left the court while Prairie Ridge lingered to celebrate with friends and family members. In the moments after the loss, C-G was led in scoring by Sarah Kendeigh (11 points), Katie Barker (nine) and Candace Cunningham (seven). “It seemed like every time we got it a little close, [Prairie Ridge] went on another run,” C-G coach Rod Saffert said. “That was kind of the story of the whole night.” Kendeigh wiped away tears as she reflected on an 18-win season for the Trojans. “Every single girl on the team is extremely hard working,” Kendeigh said. “They’re all super dedicated girls.” Now, it’s Prairie Ridge’s turn to try to make a deep playoff run. More than 20 minutes after the game, Drain had yet to take a seat to catch her breath. Rest would come. Eventually. “I don’t plan on sitting down anytime soon,” Drain said with a smile.

Canada’s defense stifles USA VIEWS Rick Morrissey AP photo
Former Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan takes a question from a reporter Friday in Sochi, Russia, after a screening of a new documentary about the 1994 attack on her that will air Sunday.
Gallows humor SOCHI, Russia –Twenty years later, Nancy Kerrigan tries to chuckle when she recounts the plots against her as the 1994 Lillehammer Games approached. She does that, she said, because she has to. Kerrigan suffered a badly bruised right knee when an associated of Tonya Harding’s ex-husband whacked her with a baton after a practice during the national championships. She was able to recover in time for the Olympics, where she earned a silver medal. It was later learned that some of the plots from the group had a lot more sinister intentions. FBI transcripts that Kerrigan reviewed showed that they discussed myriad ways to keep her from the Olympics, including hitting her with a car, tying her up and slashing her Achilles tendon and killing her. But the group proved to be a bumbling one, getting lost on the way to her practice facility and generally bungling the operation. “I’m so lucky for bad guys not knowing what they’re doing,” Kerrigan said Friday after a screening of the NBC special “Nancy and Tonya.” ‘’It’s not funny because they still did attack me and there’s nothing really funny about getting attacked. But I had to literally try to find some humor. That helps heal. Humor is healthy.” – By Jon Krawczynski –
Twitter http://twitter.com/ APKrawczynski ‘Clearly very bad’ SOCHI, Russia – The head of Germany’s Olympic body said one of the country’s top biathletes is on her way home after testing positive for a banned stimulant. Michael Vesper, chief of German Olympic body DOSB, said during a brief news conference Friday night that former two-time Olympic gold medalist Evi Sachenbacher-Stehle was removed from the team after testing positive in two samples. She blames the test on a nutritional supplement, saying she never knowingly took performance-enhancing drugs. Vesper told reporters the news rocked the German Olympic team. “Of course we were shocked by the news and the mood in our Olympic team was clearly very bad. We are absolutely in favor of team sport and against any kind of manipulation,” he said. “This is why – before the games and during the games – we took action. We also acted quickly and decisively now in accordance with the athletes’ agreement, an agreement that we have concluded with Evi Sachenbacher-Stehle.” – By Oskar Garcia – Twitter

SOCHI, Russia – This was a fast, methodical demise, if there is such a thing, and as the game wore on, it became apparent there was no way out for Team USA. Canada had a death grip on the Americans, and although everyone knows that hockey is a game of crazy bounces, there never seemed to be a hint that the United States was going to win Friday night. What we were witnessing was a 1-0 blowout. Its dream of knocking off the Canadians and heading to the Olympic gold-medal game ended with a very loud thud. Instead, Canada will play Sweden for gold Sunday, and the U.S. will face Finland for the bronze medal Saturday. There was no consolation in that for the Americans, who had wanted to prove, once and for all, that they were Canada’s equal. But when you play 60 minutes of hockey and get the life squeezed out of you every step of the way, it’s hard to make that point. “We had an awesome opportunity,’’ American David Backes said. “I don’t think we quite laid it all on the line the way we needed to do in order to win, obviously. A 1-0 game in the semifinal against your rival country, it’s a sour taste for sure.’’ But it’s hard to see what more Team USA could have done outside of finding players with more speed. And there aren’t any. Canada had struggled on offense in the Olympics, but now we know that it didn’t much matter. Nor did it matter that the U.S. seemed to be the only team in the tournament that had figured out how to score leading up to Friday’s semifinal matchup. When Canada puts its mind to it, there is not a team on Earth that can match it stride for stride. It’s not that the U.S. played a bad game, although its power play was awful. It’s that it skated up and down the ice in a very wide-open game and had nothing to show for it. The Americans ran into something bigger than they were Friday night. It’s called “Canada.’’ Those are bitter words to swallow for Team USA, but there is no denying them. Canada suffocated the Americans. There was no space, nowhere to run, no room at the inn. A great pass from Jay Bouwmeester to Jamie Benn early in the second peri-
USA forward Zach Parise (right) tries to score against Canada goaltender Carey Price during the first period of an Olympic semifinal Friday in Sochi, Russia. Canada won, 1-0. od gave Canada a 1-0 lead. No way that would hold up, right? Yeah, well, about that. The U.S. will look back on their power play as one of the culprits in the loss. It went 0 for 3 with a man advantage. As the Blackhawks’ Patrick Kane said afterward, when you get three chances, you expect to score at least one goal. “We got cute, and they sent it down the ice time after time,’’ Backes said. It was a painful night for the Americans, but, again, it’s hard to know what the lesson is in it. Skate faster? Be as good as Canada? The score says they were almost that Friday. The reality said they were miles away. Sometimes you just have to acknowledge that the better team won. But don’t suggest to U.S. players that Canada is inside their heads. “We lost 1-0,’’ captain Zach Parise said. “I don’t think there was a mental block at all.’’ Canada played a near-perfect game in the biggest game of the Olympics to date. It might not feed the appetite of the people who like goals, but it was a clinic on how to shut down a team. Wherever the Americans wanted to be, the Canadians were already there,
waiting. There’s no way the gold-medal game will be able to match this one for on-ice speed and off-ice hype. “It’s amazing,’’ said Canada’s Jonathan Toews, the Hawks’ captain. “In some ways, that felt like the ultimate game.’’ This one won’t go down as an instant classic, the way the gold-medal game did in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, when Canada beat the U.S. in overtime. But hockey purists will look on this one with something approaching reverence. Great goaltending by Carey Price of Canada and Jonathan Quick of the U.S. And just a spectacular in-your-face assault by the Canadians. That won’t make it any easier to handle for the Americans, who will have to wait another four years to try to unseat the Canadians. “It stinks,’’ Kane said. “It’s tough. I think all of us thought we’d be in a different situation at this time right now. Obviously, it wasn’t good enough to win a game.’’

First-class stache: Top facial hair of the #Sochi2014 #Olympics: http:// tw.nbcsports.com/lkn
American teen Shiffrin hangs on for gold By HOWARD FENDRICH The Associated Press KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia – Normally so composed, so in control, so not-very-teenlike on and off the slopes, Mikaela Shiffrin suddenly found herself in an awkward position halfway through the second leg of the Olympic slalom. Guilty, perhaps, of charging too hard as she swayed this way and that around the course’s gates, Shiffrin briefly lost her balance. Her left ski rose too far off the snow. Her chance at a gold medal in the event she’s dominated for two years was about to slip away. “Yeah, that was pretty terrifying for me. There I was, I’m like, ‘Grrreat. I’m just going to go win my first medal.’ And then, in the middle of the run, I’m like, ‘Guess not,’ ” the American said with a laugh Friday night. “So like, ‘No.
Slalom gold medal winner Mikaela Shiffrin of the United States wears an American flag after a flower ceremony Friday in Krasnaya Polyana, Russia. Don’t do that. Do not give up. You see this through.’ My whole goal was to just keep my skis moving.” Somehow, she did just that. Shiffrin stayed upright, gathered herself and, although giving away precious time there, was able to make a big
lead from the first leg stand up. She won by more than a half-second to become, at 18, the youngest slalom champion in Olympic history. “It’s going to be something that I chalk up as one of my favorite experiences for the rest of my life,” Shiffrin said. “But
my life’s not over yet.” No, Mikaela, it’s not. It’s only just beginning. Think about this for a moment: How might a typical American teenager have spent her Friday night? At the mall with friends? At a movie? At a high school dance? Shiffrin spent hers outracing the best skiers in the world down a floodlit Rosa Khutor course, knocking aside gates with her neon yellow pole handles. She was fastest in the first run, then sixth-fastest in the second, for a combined time of 1:44.54. A pair of Austrians won silver and bronze: Marlies Schild was 0.53 behind Shiffrin, and Kathrin Zettel was 0.81 back. At 32, Schild is the oldest Olympic slalom medalist ever – old enough to have been someone Shiffrin looked up to as, well, even more of a kid than she is now. “I won my age class,” Schild joked.

Attorney Paula Rieghns checks her cell phone at her new office in Marengo. On Christmas, a mysterious fire destroyed her office and had the attorney worried about her safety. Rieghns hasn’t let the fire distract her from clients and casework.
Moving forward Attorney relocates office after Christmas night fire By JOSEPH BUSTOS email@example.com MARENGO – Inside a new office, divorce attorney Paula Rieghns still conducts business, even though not all of the furniture has arrived and files are still in boxes. Rieghns is in the process of moving in and setting up at 205 N. State St. Her previous office at 821 E. Grant St. was destroyed by a fire Christmas night. Out of the six units connected in the strip mall, Rieghns’ office was the only one affected by the fire. Marengo Police Chief Joseph Hallman said the fire is still under investigation. Everything in the office was destroyed or severely damaged “We lost everything,” Rieghns said. “It was like a bomb went off; everything was gone.” After the fire, Rieghns and business manager Jennifer Drendel went to work to find a new location. They found the new location on State Street about a week after the fire and started moving the first week of January. Moving to the new location and buying new equipment and furniture cost about $20,000. Insurance covered the expenses. Furniture is in the process of be-
The Law Office of Paula Rieghns Where: 205 N. State St., Marengo Phone: 815-901-2273 Website: www.differentlawpractice.com ing delivered, and file cabinets have been moved in. After the fire, Rieghns has decided to take some extra security precautions. Cameras are set to be installed at the new location, and Rieghns and Drendel have taken gun safety courses. The new office is in a converted house that is about 150 years old. Rieghns shares the building with an eye doctor on the first floor. The second floor is an apartment. Rieghns has set up her personal working area in a former dining room. Part of the reception area is over what used to be a porch. Workers restored the Victorian baseboards to go with the feel of the building, Rieghns said. Even as Rieghns and Drendel have moved and set up the new location, working with clients has had to continue. “A divorce is the most important
part in someone’s life, or custody battle,” Rieghns said. “I’m not going to let something like this keep me from giving you the best service possible. Your divorce isn’t going to be put on hold just because someone threw a bomb in my office.” Other attorneys have been helpful and understanding, Rieghns said. Only a few cases have had to be delayed. Files also had online backups, Rieghns said. “It hasn’t affected quality of work, and it hasn’t affected my ability to represent them and make sure their best interest is being served,” Rieghns said. Before the fire, Rieghns had been at her Grant Street office for about six months and had just finished setting up and decorating the office with items such as art on the walls, only to have to move again. They had to order new furniture, computers and printers and other equipment. They also plan to decorate the new office. “But we’re going to make this place work too,” Rieghns said. “We’re happy to be here,” Rieghns said. “It’s a great location, it feels very homey. It feels very Marengo like. It’s a nice location.”
County home sales fall 7.7 percent NORTHWEST HERALD CRYSTAL LAKE – Homes sales in McHenry County fell 7.7 percent in January as cold weather and limited inventory held back sales across the county. Nationwide, sales of existing U.S. homes plummeted in January to the worst pace in 18 months. Sales of existing McHenry County homes fell to 264 in January, down 7.7 percent from 287 in January 2013, according to figures released Friday by the Illinois Association of Realtors. The median sales price increased 14.2 percent to $145,000 in January, compared with $127,000 in January 2013. The median sales price for singlefamily homes was up 15.5 percent to $175,000 and condo prices were up 5.8 percent to $95,250 last month. Countywide, home prices remain below 2009 levels. In January, the inventory of homes for sale in McHenry County dropped 23.5 percent to 1,753, compared with 2,292 in January 2013. Homes also spent less time on the market. The number of days on the market until sale was down to 86 days, an 18.1 percent decline from 105 days in January 2013. In Kane County, existing home sales dropped 7.4 percent to 402, down from 434 in January 2013. The median sales price for all properties increased to $156,500 last month, up 20.4 percent from $130,000 in January 2013. Kane County’s inventory of homes dropped 25.2 percent to 2,287, down from 3,058 in January 2013. In Lake County, existing homes sales hit 574 last month, a 3.1 percent increase from 557 in January 2013.
The median sales price increased 16.1 percent to 161,500 last month, compared with $139,160 in January 2013. Inventory was down to 3,162 homes in January, 29.7 percent lower than 4,497 in January 2013. Nationwide, sales fell to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.62 million units last month, the National Association of Realtors said Friday. That was down 5.1 percent from the December pace. The sales rate declined 5.1 percent over the previous 12 months. Higher mortgage rates and higher prices have contributed to a slowdown in home buying in five of the past six months. Freezing temperatures and snowstorms also have caused most housing activity to slip this winter. The flagging sales suggest a deceleration from the momentum for much of 2013, when 5.09 million homes were sold, the most in seven years. “Such a picture confirms that the U.S. housing market reached its peak at the end of 2013, and further reacceleration is unlikely near term,” Annalisa Piazza of Newedge Strategy said in a research note. Home building dipped 16 percent in January from December, the Commerce Department said this week. Signed contracts to buy homes plunged in December, foreshadowing the January drop-off, the Realtors said in a separate report. The weather has kept would-be buyers from venturing to open houses, while construction crews have endured work stoppages. But sales also declined in parts of the country where weather was less of a factor. This suggested that price pressures and tight inventories are
also weighing on the real estate market. Buying fell 7.3 percent in Western states, the region less affected by winter storms and where average prices are the highest. That decline was significantly larger than in the Northeast, South and Midwest. The median price of homes in the West is $273,500, almost double the median price in the Midwest. The median price nationwide has risen 10.7 percent to $188,900 since January 2013. There are just 4.9 months of available inventory on the market, a sign that would-be buyers have relatively few homes to pick from and may choose to delay purchases. Just 26 percent of sales last month were by first-time buyers. In a healthy market, that figure is closer to 40 percent. All cash-sales accounted for 33 percent of all purchases, evidence that investors continue to make up a sizable share of the sales. Existing-home sales in a healthy market would approach 5.5 million, nearly 900,000 more than the January rate. Buying has slowed during the past six months. Over the summer of 2013, home resales reached a pace of 5.39 million. But they began to slow in September as the costs of buying a home rose because of rising prices and higher mortgage rates. The average rate on a 30-year mortgage rose to 4.33 percent this week from 4.28 percent the previous week. Rates surged about 1.25 percentage points from May through September, peaking at 4.6 percent.

NEW YORK – Investment firm G Asset has offered to buy 51 percent of the Barnes & Noble bookstore chain for about $672 million. The New York firm says its offer is for $22 per share, 31 percent above the stock’s closing price Thursday. Barnes & Noble has about 60 million shares outstanding. G Asset says Barnes & Noble is “substantially undervalued.” The retailer is trying to turn around its results as more consumers buy books online or in a digital format. The New York company’s sales fell 6.6 percent at its bookstores and online during the critical holiday shopping season. It has invested heavily in its Nook ebook business, but sales in that unit also are dropping. If the bid were successful, G Asset would spin off the Nook business into its own venture, separate from Barnes & Noble’s retail stores and college bookstores.
Sony counting on new game machine TOKYO – PlayStation stands out among the long list of famous Sony brands as one that hasn’t faded or succumbed to a nimbler competitor. Months after hitting global markets, the latest version of the videogame console went on sale Saturday in Tokyo, a big shift from times when Sony was ascendant enough to launch flagship products in Japan first. The PlayStation 4’s much awaited arrival in Sony Corp.’s home market is the first time Japan did not get a major Sony game machine ahead of other markets. With much riding on the PS4’s success, the commercial advantages of targeting overseas markets outweighed the sentimental pull of a hometown launch. The PS4, Sony’s first videogame console in seven years, went on sale in the U.S. and Europe in November.
Shaw Media’s Bricker named publisher of dailies CRYSTAL LAKE – Don Bricker has been named publisher of The Herald-News and the Morris Daily Herald, Shaw Media announced Friday. Shaw Media is the parent company of the Northwest Herald. Bricker, who Don Bricker also serves as vice president of Shaw Media’s Suburban Group Publishing, will be based in The Herald-News office in Joliet.

Bricker joined Shaw Media in June 2008 as publisher of the Kane County Chronicle and Daily Chronicle in DeKalb. His role expanded in 2009 when he assumed responsibility for group operations. He was named regional publisher and group general manager in 2013. Before Shaw, Bricker was publisher of the Appeal-Democrat in Marysville, Calif. His background includes leadership positions with The Gazette in Colorado Springs, Colo., and the Daily Southtown in Chicago’s southwest suburbs. He lives in Elburn with his wife, Karen.

Award winners shine at Woodstock Chamber dinner The Woodstock Chamber of Commerce & Industry hosted its 69th annual dinner Thursday at the Woodstock Public House. Our annual awards are always of interest to the community, shining the spotlight on the best and brightest of the last year. The 2013 Professional Service Provider of the Year Award was presented to Woodstock Professional & Business Women. The organization has been in the Woodstock community since 1931 and first became a member of the chamber in 1983. The group is involved in community projects including the Miss Woodstock Scholarship Pageant. Since 2005, the organization has provided scholarship money for the pageant and volunteers for the night of the actual event, helping with ticket sales, ushering, and other vital roles pertinent to the evening going off without a hitch. In addition, a mem-
business strategy to the whole business community. The 2013 Retailer of the Year Award went to Woodstock Theatre. A member of the chamber since 2009, the newly remodeled Woodstock Theatre, which is owned and operated by Classic Cinemas, really upped its game in 2013 in terms of chamber activity. The theater was a vital part of the chamber’s membership drive by donating movie passes to all new and renewing members. If that wasn’t enough, the theater took an active role in supporting the chamber’s annual Community Guide publication. The 2013 Volunteer of the Year Award was taken home by Todd Kinker. When it comes to demonstrating commitment to the chamber, its members, and the community, few can demonstrate a volunteer record to rival Kinker, who is vice president of Golden Eagle Commu-
CHAMBER NEWS Shari Gray ber of the Woodstock Professional & Business Women sits on the chamber’s board, helping to support the local business community. The 2013 Industry of the Year Award went to Claussen Pickle Co. Claussen Pickle Co. has been in the Woodstock community since 1976. A strong business leader, Claussen has been a member of the chamber since 1980 and a chamber partner since 2008. Claussen has been a major sponsor of Woodstock’s annual Pickle Palooza music festival. In keeping with its commitment to the community, Claussen Pickle provides a representative to serve on the chamber board, adding Claussen’s insights on successful
nity Bank. He has held a seat on all chamber committees since 2009. He also served as board president from 2009-13. Demonstrating a strong commitment to the chamber, Kinker is always willing to do whatever he can by volunteering his time and talents wherever needed. His guidance, insight, direction, and support has been invaluable to the success of the chamber. To cap the evening’s festivities, we presented the highly prestigious Harold Buschkopf Community Service Award. This award is given to a deserved Woodstock resident whose commitment to their community is reflected in Buschkopf’s legacy. Buschkopf was a community leader, spokesman and ambassador who gave unselfishly of his time, energy and money. He was a man who loved Woodstock. This year’s award was given to Kim Larson, executive director of
Family Alliance and a Woodstock resident. Larson’s unselfish giving of her time and talents to organizations such as Christmas Clearing House, Tag Sale Days, Woodstock Noon Rotary, Community Development Block Grant Commission and Human Service Advocates of McHenry County made her a worthy recipient. We are proud of all of our deserving award winners and applaud them for their unique ways of supporting the Woodstock business community as well as the community itself. But there is no reason that you and your business can’t stand out in supporting the chamber and be award winners in the coming years.

Transcripts show Federal Reserve at times slow to grasp depth of crisis By MARTIN CRUTSINGER and PAUL WISEMAN The Associated Press WASHINGTON – The Federal Reserve agonized in 2008 over how far to go to stop a financial crisis that threatened to cause a recession and at times struggled to recognize its speed and magnitude. “We’re crossing certain lines. We’re doing things we haven’t done before,” Chairman Ben Bernanke said as Fed officials met in an emergency session March 10 and launched never-before-taken steps to lend to teetering Wall Street firms, among a series of unorthodox moves that year to calm investors and aid the economy. “On the other hand, this financial crisis is now in its eighth month, and the economic outlook has worsened quite significantly.” The Fed on Friday released hundreds of pages of transcripts covering its 14 meetings during 2008 – eight regularly scheduled meetings and six emergency sessions. The Fed releases full transcripts of each year’s policy meetings after a five-year lag. The 2008 transcripts cover the most tumultuous period of the crisis, including the collapse and rescue of investment bank Bear Stearns, the government takeover of mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the fateful decision to let investment bank Lehman Brothers collapse in the largest bankruptcy in U.S. history and the bailout of insurer American International Group. For all its aggressive steps in 2008, the transcripts show the Fed failing at times to grasp the size of the catastrophe they were dealing with. Bernanke and his top lieutenants often expressed puzzlement that they weren’t managing to calm panicky investors. As late as Sept. 16, a day after Lehman

Federal Reserve officials agonized throughout 2008 over how far they could go to stop a financial catastrophe that threatened to pull the economy into a deep recession, transcripts of the Fed’s policy meetings that year show. Brothers filed for bankruptcy, Bernanke declared, “I think that our policy is looking actually pretty good.” The Fed declined at that meeting to cut its benchmark short-term rate. Yet just three weeks later, after the Fed had rescued AIG, Bernanke felt compelled to call an emergency conference call. In it, he won approval for a half-point rate cut. Early in the year, some Fed officials had yet to appreciate the gravity of the crisis. In January, Frederic Mishkin, a Fed governor, missed an emergency conference call because he was
“on the slopes.” “I think in Idaho somewhere,” Bernanke said. The crisis had been building for months. In the Jan. 21 conference call, Bernanke rallied support for a deep cut in interest rates. He warned that market turmoil reflected investors’ concerns that “the United States is in for a deep and protracted recession.” Bernanke apologized to his colleagues for convening the call on the Martin Luther King holiday. But he felt the urgency of the crisis required the Fed to act before its regularly
scheduled meeting the next week. It approved a cut of three-fourths of a percentage point in its benchmark for short-term rates. The transcripts reveal the arguments Bernanke deployed to marshal backing for unconventional policy actions – including support from Janet Yellen, who succeeded Bernanke this month as Fed chair. At the time, Yellen was head of the Fed’s San Francisco regional bank. At an Oct. 28-29 Fed meeting, Yellen noted the dire events that had occurred that fall. With a nod to Halloween, she said the Fed had received “witch’s brew of news.” “The downward trajectory of economic data,” Yellen went on, “has been hair-raising – with employment, consumer sentiment, spending and orders for capital goods, and homebuilding all contracting.” Market conditions had “taken a ghastly turn for the worse,” she said. “It is becoming abundantly clear that we are in the midst of a serious global meltdown.” Yellen had downgraded her economic outlook and was predicting a recession, with four straight quarters of declining growth. The recession was later determined to have begun in December 2007. It lasted until June 2009. The Fed’s moves failed to prevent colossal damage from the crisis. The U.S. economy sank into the worst recession since the 1930s. But Fed officials and many economists have argued that without the Fed’s aggressive actions, the Great Recession would have been more catastrophic, perhaps rivaling the Great Depression. Even as they grappled with a floundering financial system and an economy in freefall, Fed policymakers wondered how history would judge them.

Aldous Huxley, an English author who died in 1963, said, “An unexciting truth may be eclipsed by a thrilling lie.” The truth in this deal is, I think, exciting, containing as it does a thrilling lie. What should happen in four hearts after West leads the diamond jack? When North passed, East opened with a weak two-bid, showing six good diamonds and some 6-10 high-card points. (In the second position, you should have a textbook hand for a pre-empt because your partner probably has a decent collection.) Then South bid what he hoped he could make. He knew he might miss a slam, but that was not likely, given partner’s initial pass. South seemed to have only three losers: one diamond and two clubs. But declarer also knew that West’s opening lead was a singleton. However, East did not. South, trying to hide the truth from East, made a thrilling lie when he smoothly dropped his diamond king under East’s ace. Now East, believing declarer’s card, shifted to his singleton spade. South won with his ace, drew two rounds
of trumps, cashed his other top spades, crossed to dummy with a heart, discarded a loser on the spade jack, and claimed. If South had played his low diamond at trick one, East would have given his partner a diamond ruff at trick two. (He ought to lead the nine, his middle card, because he does not know which suit he wants his partner to lead at trick three.) West will then cash the club ace, under which East will signal enthusiastically with his eight. Another club to the king would defeat the contract.

TODAY - Your life will improve this year if you follow your intuition. Your ideas may seem outlandish to some, but your commitment and insights will win them over. Influential people will take note of your attributes, and you will meet someone who can help advance your career. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Consider your current position. Keep up to date with job opportunities through social media or newspapers. Carefully review your qualifications and update your resume to suit the job market. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Fix things you’ve been putting off. By freeing your time, you’ll be able to take on a project that interests you and could increase your earning potential. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Don’t get involved in any new ventures. Stay close to home and nurture personal relationships. Elderly relatives would enjoy hearing from you. Your concern will be appreciated and could bring rewards. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- You need a change of scenery. Don’t feel that it’s necessary to embark on a major excursion. Instead, make positive changes to your surroundings to add to your entertainment or sense of security. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You will be given extra assignments. Rather than get upset, make the commitment to do the best job possible, and keep your complaints to yourself. Your professionalism will pay off. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Your generous nature is upsetting your budget. You cannot buy love, so stop paying for everything and everyone. Chances are someone has ulterior motives and is taking advantage of you. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Someone you deal with is not living up to a promise. An angry confrontation will only make matters worse. Do your best to find a diplomatic way of resolving the situation. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Your mind is brimming with innovative ideas. Share your plans with close friends. You will accomplish a lot if everyone directs his or her energies to the same goal. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Keep your cash in your pocket. Don’t let others involve you in unfamiliar causes. There are lots of unscrupulous people trying to convince you to part with your money. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You will meet with people who have different beliefs and values. Respect their opinions, and don’t try to change their views. An open mind will also help you gain freedom. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Consider and reflect upon a personal situation. Someone with whom you have dealings may feel you have been too demanding. You need to decide whether to back away or repair the damage. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Your intuitive and thoughtful nature will result in an interesting and rewarding friendship. While this is a positive development, don’t divulge too much private information too quickly.

Teeth in a Day Procedure with All-On-Four Dental Implants ‘‘Like having a second set of permanent teeth’’ Dr. M. Shakeel Licensed General Dentist
Dr. C. Matesi Licensed General Dentist
By Dr. M. Shakeel LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO NOT FULLY ENJOY EACH AND EVERY REASON TO SMILE If you ﬁnd yourself avoiding family photos, ﬁrst impressions or even savoring your favorite foods, Dr. Shakeel’s unique dental implant techniques offer the solutions you’ve been searching for. The All-On-Four Dental Implants procedure - Teeth in a Day - offers simple, reliable and long-lasting results for patients who are missing teeth or experiencing the frustrations of loose, decayed and broken teeth. Though advanced technology and innovative techniques, dental implants are easier to place, less invasive and have a successful rate of over 95%.
WHY DR. SHAKEEL? With years of experience in the ﬁeld, Dr. Shakeel is a highly respected expert in the placement and restoration of dental implants from a single missing tooth to the entire upper and lower arch. His background in dental implant surgery provides a strong foundation that ensures medically safe and aesthetically beautiful results. Furthermore, Dr. Shakeel received extensive hands-on training and assisted with numerous successful cases, under the guidance of the pioneer of the All-on-Four procedure, Dr. Paulo Malo of Portugal (2010). Few in the dental industry possess his mastery of the combined surgical and prosthetic demands of successful implant dentistry, especially executing the All-On-Four procedure. IDEAL PATIENTS The All-On-Four technique is for patients dissatisﬁed with their current dentures or for those who have
no practical alternatives for saving their remaining teeth. In most all cases, patients lacking the bone volume required to support traditional implants are able to enjoy the many beneﬁts of a permanent solution to missing teeth through the All-OnFour procedure. THE TEETH IN A DAY PROCESS This amazing technique enables you to achieve a beautiful, new Smile in a Day by utilizing four implants placed in each arch to which the replacement teeth are securely attached. Gentle oral sedation assures that you receive maximum safety and comfort throughout the procedure. In addition, the entire process, including any necessary extractions, can be completed in one day with minimal recovery time.The result is a fully functional set of teeth that look and feel natural, improves your self-conﬁdence and allows you to once again experience the foods and activities you enjoy most.
DISCOVER THE BENEFITS • Requires minimal recovery • Reduces overall cost when compared to single implants • Eliminates the need for bone grafting in most all cases • Allows for easy maintenance through proper oral hygiene • Restores the ability to eat all types of foods • Relieves the many frustrations of removable appliances • Ensures long-term results with the potential to last a lifetime • Renews a youthful appearance through bone level stabilization • Creates a whole new smile in just one day • Enhances self-conﬁdence and overall quality of life For more information on Teeth in a Day or on All-On-Four Dental Implants, contact:
Dr. Shakeel Signature Dental Group 815-455-3300 www.signaturedentalgroup.com
All procedures are done under conscious sedation to ensure patient comfort and safety. Dr Shakeel and Dr Sinha hold anesthesia permits in the state of Illinois.
