Crystal Lake Park District, LITH talking about land annexation for potential aquatic center

Rule on pot fair, say some Industry advisers: In line with other states’ regulations By CHACOUR KOOP The Associated Press

Within the Lake in the Hills village limits are limited aquatic features, such as the splash pad at Sunset Park. The Crystal Lake Park District

SPRINGFIELD – Advisers to businesses hoping to get into Illinois’ medical marijuana pilot program say the proposed rules for getting into the industry would be financially burdensome but fair and likely wouldn’t hinder the application process, which is expected to be highly competitive. The state’s revenue, agriculture, and financial and professional regulation departments Friday released proposed regulations for the new program. Public comments on the proposed rules will be taken until Feb. 27. Consultants and lawyers for potential medical marijuana business owners say the expensive, rigorous process is in line with other states. But some users are concerned the large businesses likely to own dispensaries and cultivation centers may not produce a cheaper and high-quality medicine for consumers. Applicants for retail dispensary stores would need $400,000 on hand, with verification of how they acquired the money. The proposed

and JEFF ENGELHARDT jengelhardt Two of the county’s largest communities, that don’t have pub-

licly-funded swimming pools, are working towards an aquatic solution that could serve both Crystal Lake and Lake in the Hills. The Crystal Lake Park District is in discussions with Lake in the Hills about annexing 27 acres of

unincorporated land, which the park district might earmark for an aquatic center. Efforts in the past by the park district to get approval to build a community pool, or even find a location for one, have failed.

Speaker: We must ‘abolish prostitution’ By CYNTHIA WOLF CRYSTAL LAKE – Two years after presenting “Nefarious: Merchant of Souls” at a local Patriots United-sponsored breakfast, Laila Mickelwait returned Saturday to talk of progress, and hindrances, in the ongoing fight against human trafficking. Mickelwait, manager of policy and public affairs for an organization called Exodus Cry, was the keynote speaker at this year’s Celebrating

Life Unity Breakfast. About 400 people attended the fifth annual event sponsored by the Pro-Family pillar of Patriots United at D’Andrea Banquets in Crystal Lake. “I’m just so Laila b l o w n a w a y Mickelwait and so blessed Keynote personally to speaker come back two years later and see how God has moved in people’s hearts,”


Mickelwait said. “I’ve shown ‘Nefarious’ to thousands of people around the world. … It is one thing to be touched by the film, and it is another to say ‘yes,’ and act upon the burden.” “Nefarious” is an award-winning 2011 documentary regarding modern-day slavery and sex trafficking, a practice Mickelwait and other event speakers said not only exists in the United States, but is insidious. U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren, who addressed the gathering

before Mickelwait, said sex trafficking is the third largest criminal activity in the United States, accounting for about $7 billion annually. Mickelwait presented statistics estimating between 10 million and 30 million people in the world today are in slavery, a $30 billion-a-year industry. She added that while legislative efforts have been made, the demand and number of victims continues to rise, and called on all in the

Northwest Herald Web Poll Question Log on to and vote on today’s poll question:


Greatest Generation must plug in or risk turning out One small part of journalists’ job is fielding reader calls often involving things that might never turn into news stories, although some useful bits of information are exchanged. It’s sort of like being a librarian or an information switchboard operator, and we never mind pointing people toward credible, relevant information or toward resources whether in the interest of journalism or not. We’re here to serve readers with information in a variety of ways, and while distributing information to the masses is our business model, we’ll serve them one at a time when we can, too. We won’t and shouldn’t offer legal advice. We aren’t priests, psychoanalysts or counselors. Anyone willing to seek spiritual or personal advice from a newspaper editor, has deeper issues than any journalist can resolve. But information is definitely our trade. So please don’t interpret this column as a complaint. It’s not intended to be, and I don’t want to discourage anyone from getting news or information by any means from their local community news source. But I’m troubled when I speak with usually much older readers who tell me they’re unable to find the information they’re looking for because they don’t use a computer or the Internet. I’m happy to help them find what they need and always do so either immediately or as soon as I’m able to do a .032-second Google search, but I’m sad that there still are people trying to function in 2014 without a hint of computer literacy. And I’m also not trying to stereotype.

VIEWS Kevin Lyons I know plenty of seniors who are incredibly skilled on the Internet. I’d have barely recognized my late father-in-law without a laptop, and know other seniors who maintain their own blogs, are active on social media and take great pride in keeping up with technology. The good news is that the phone calls come with less and less frequency. The best study I found on seniors and Internet uses was a 2012 Pew study showing that for the first time ever, more than half of seniors older than 65 are using the Internet or email. Among those 53 percent of seniors older than 65 who report using the Internet, 70 percent say they use it in their daily lives. It’s great that the trend is improving. While real life and face-to-face, voice-tovoice interaction will always be important, being able to communicate and find information online is vital and will become even more critical each year. If you’re a senior reading this column on dead trees, I’m glad you’re reading newspapers and staying abreast of current affairs. But if you don’t use the Internet and think it doesn’t matter whether you do, I’d urge you to reconsider. Sure, the Internet can be a tremendous waste of time, but so can TV and really bad literature. Eschewing the entire medium isn’t a logical reaction. There are 400 billions ways to waste time

The Associated Press ATLANTA – Health officials have begun to predict the end of cigarette smoking in America. They have long wished for a cigarette-free America, but shied away from calling for smoking rates to fall to zero or near zero by any particular year. The power of tobacco companies and popularity of their products made such a goal seem like a pipe dream. But a confluence of changes recently has prompted public health leaders to start throwing around phrases such as “endgame” and “tobacco-free generation.” Now, they talk about the slowly-declining adult smoking rate dropping to 10 percent in the next decade and to 5 percent or lower by 2050. Acting U.S. Surgeon General Boris Lushniak last month released a 980-page report on smoking that pushed for stepped-up tobacco-control measures. His news conference was an unusually animated showing of anti-smoking bravado, with Lushniak nearly yelling, repeatedly, “Enough is enough!” “I can’t accept that we’re just allowing these numbers to trickle down,” he said, in a recent interview with the AP. “We believe we have the pub-

In 1984, Surgeon General C. Everett Koop called for a “smoke-free society” by the year 2000. However, Koop – a bold talker on many issues – didn’t offer specifics on how

to achieve such a goal. “What’s different today is that we have policies and programs that have been proven to drive down tobacco use,” said Matthew Myers, president of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. “We couldn’t say that in 1984.” These developments have

made many in public health dream bigger. It’s caused Myers’ organization and others to recently tout the goal of bringing the adult smoking rate down to 10 percent by 2024, from the current 18 percent. That would mean dropping it at twice the speed it declined over the past 10 years.

Prosecutor stands behind terror charges The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – During an atmosphere two years ago when Chicago authorities were warning demonstrations could turn violent at an upcoming NATO summit, the chief prosecutor chose to invoke an almost never-used Illinois law to charge three self-described anarchists with terrorism. After jurors acquitted them

Friday of all terrorism charges – convicting them instead of lesser arson and mob action counts – journalists asked Cook County state’s attorney Anita Alvarez if, in hindsight, she regretted filing the more-serious charges. “Absolutely not!” she said, her voice rising in a courtroom hallway. “I would bring these charges [again] tomorrow morning – with no apolo-

gies and no second-guessing.” Prosecutors had accused Brian Church, Jared Chase and Brent Vincent Betterly of plotting, in the weeks before the summit, Molotov cocktail attacks on President Barack Obama’s campaign office, Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s home and police stations. Two undercover officers infiltrated their inner circle, and the activists were arrested just days

Ill. lawmakers add rules for funeral homes

before the summit began. If the jurors’ finding wasn’t a win in what was widely seen as a test case of Illinois’ terrorism statute, nor was it a defeat for her office, Alvarez said. “How is this a defeat? ... We saved people from being hurt,” she said. “Do we have to wait for a Chicago police officer to be set on fire? ... Do we have to wait for that neighborhood bank to go up in flames?”

Address body preservation pose, Brady said. Brady’s funeral home doesn’t have refrigerated units to store bodies. In one case, a family from California couldn’t be reached for three days. In the meantime, Brady turned the body over to the coroner’s office to be refrigerated, adding to the funeral’s price tag. Brady said this happens all across Illinois. Brady also said the bill would protect funeral directors, from a liability standpoint. If a family couldn’t be contacted, the funeral home could embalm the body without having to fear litigation if it were against the family’s wishes. The current law says funeral homes can embalm if they’ve made a “good faith effort” to contact families, but it says nothing about a time period. Charles Childs, president and co-owner of A.A. Rayner and Sons in Chicago, said his funeral home has held bodies for one to two weeks while waiting for instruction from families. “We wait the next day, the next day, and we have no contact with the family,” Charles said.

Winter among snowiest ever in central Illinois

SPRINGFIELD – It can take days or even weeks after someone dies before the family gives instructions on what kind of service they want, funeral directors say. Sometimes the family lives out of state and can’t be reached, or family members argue over the arrangements. Meanwhile, funeral homes may hold the body without refrigerated storage, potentially allowing it to decompose and posing a public health risk. Now an Illinois lawmaker with personal experience with the issue is proposing an unusual piece of legislation to address it. State Rep. Dan Brady, a Bloomington Republican who’s also a funeral home director and embalmer, wants to require bodies to be refrigerated or embalmed within 48 hours if funeral homes don’t receive other instructions from the person in charge of arrangements. “It’s just about as far as one could hold remains without preservation,” before they start to decom-

A man rides a bicycle Saturday in Wilmette. Although snow is piling up throughout the state, snowfall totals so far ranks among the 10 snowiest winters on record for many central Illinois cities. The National Weather Service said Tuscola’s 34.6 inches is already the third for snowfall in the eastern Illinois town’s history. Peoria’s 35.8 inches of snow ranks fourth all time for that city. And Springfield’s winter has moved up to No. 5 on the capital’s Top 10 list at 34.2 inches.

Former Chicago Mayor Daley leaves hospital The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – Former Mayor Richard M. Daley left a Chicago hospital Saturday after more than a week of tests to determine why he was feeling ill and disoriented during a business trip. The 71-yearold smiled and waved but did not stop to speak to the Richard reporters and M. Daley videographers waiting outside Northwestern Memorial Hospital in downtown Chicago. The city’s longest-serving mayor was taken by ambulance to the hospital’s intensive care unit on Jan. 31 upon returning from a conference in Scottsdale, Ariz. But doctors and his family so far have

not released any details on his health condition. “My hope is that the sight of him will stop some of the outlandish rumors I’ve heard,” his longtime aide and spokeswoman Jacquelyn Heard said by email. Wearing a grey overcoat and a fedora, Daley was brought to the hospital lobby Saturday in a wheelchair, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. But he walked to a waiting minivan with no assistance and accompanied by his son. Daley had been complaining of feeling ill during the conference in Arizona, and on his family’s insistence he was met by an ambulance after flying back to Chicago. Northwestern Memorial Hospital spokeswoman Sheila Galloro said Saturday she could not release any details on his health.

CHICAGO – This winter’s bitter cold temperatures in the Midwest have covered a stunning 79 percent of the Great Lakes in ice. That’s not a record, but it’s well above the long-term average of about 51 percent. Lake Michigan is about 63 percent frozen. And the largest lake in the system, Huron, is about 85 percent covered. Lake Erie, at 93 percent, had the most ice cover as of Saturday. The data comes from the Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory.

Report recommends uses for closed Chicago schools CHICAGO – A committee is recommending Chicago immediately reuse two of several dozen shuttered public schools. The Advisory Committee for School Repurposing was established after the Chicago Public Schools in 2013 closed about 50 schools, saying they were underused or underperforming. The panel issued a report Friday recommending Lafayette Elementary become the Chicago High School for the Arts, and the former King

Club ceiling collapse injures 4 in Chicago CHICAGO – Part of a ceiling collapsed onto a crowd of concertgoers at a Chicago nightclub, injuring four people. Chicago police said a piece of the ceiling fell around 1:30 a.m. Saturday at the Concord Music Hall in the Logan Square neighborhood. Three of those injured were hospitalized. Witness Robert Foulks told WLS-TV the accident sent dust into the air, and at first he thought it was from a smoke machine that was part of the show. But he said it was soon clear something was wrong when security rushed to the area. There was no official word on what caused the collapse.

8NATION BRIEFS Less than 100K in Pa. remain without power PHILADELPHIA – Utility crews restored power to thousands of Pennsylvania homes Saturday, but some customers in the dark for days after a tree-snapping ice storm may not regain power until early next week. About 95,000 customers in Pennsylvania and Maryland remained without power late Saturday afternoon, and faced the prospect of a fourth night without electric heat or light. The majority of them are in the Philadelphia area, with utility PECO reporting about 93,000 outages, as of 9:30 p.m., down about 60,000 from Saturday morning. The latest outages include nearly 39,000 customers in hard-hit Chester County, or more than one in five customers.

Media sometimes revealing NSA’s secrets By RAPHAEL SATTER The Associated Press LONDON – News organizations publishing leaked National Security Agency documents have inadvertently disclosed the names of at least six intelligence workers and other government secrets they never intended to give away, an Associated Press review has found. The accidental disclosures illustrate the risks of even well-intentioned, public-interest reporting on highly secret U.S. programs. In some cases, prominent newspapers including The New York Times quickly pulled down government records they published online and recensored them to hide information they accidentally exposed. On one occasion, the Guardian newspaper published an NSA document that appeared to identify an American intelligence target living abroad. Before the newspaper could fix its mistake, a curious software engi-

Privacy expert Christopher Parsons is pictured Wednesday outside his Toronto office. The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s nightly news program, “The National,” revealed the names of three NSA employees when its cameras panned across NSA documents during voiceovers. News organizations publishing leaked National Security Agency documents have inadvertently disclosed the names of at least six intelligence workers and other government secrets they never intended to give away, an Associated Press review has found. neer, Ron Garret of Emerald Hills, Calif., tried to contact the man at his office. “I figured someone ought to give him the heads up,” Garret told The Associated Press.

The inadvertent disclosures, which include technical details and other information, are another complication in the ethically and technically challenging coverage of the NSA’s sur-

veillance programs. Journalists who have seen the unfiltered secrets leaked by former intelligence worker Edward Snowden agree that some things are off-limits for publication. But media organizations sometimes have struggled to keep them that way. Glenn Greenwald, the reporter and columnist who has played a key role in publishing so many of Snowden’s revelations, has said he wouldn’t publish the names of U.S. intelligence workers unless they were top-ranking public officials. Greenwald told the AP that the mistaken disclosures of at least six names and other material were minor errors made by technical staff and quickly corrected. “We reported on these documents with the largest and most well-respected media organizations in the world, but like all human institutions, none is perfect,” Greenwald said. It was not immediately

clear what damage, if any, has come from the disclosures of the names of the six NSA employees and other secrets. The NSA would not discuss its employees. None appeared to be working undercover. The AP was able to locate several of their home addresses and other personal details about them. The NSA said in a statement that it asks news outlets “to redact and withhold the names of employees, given the sensitive nature of the information and concerns for the safety of employees and their families.” The AP is not republishing the names of the NSA employees. It generally uses full names of government employees unless there is a specific threat or security concern.

Justice Dept. to give equal protection to gay couples By PETE YOST The Associated Press WASHINGTON – In an assertion of same-sex marriage rights, Attorney General Eric Holder is applying a landmark Supreme Court ruling to the Justice Department, announcing Saturday that same-sex spouses cannot be compelled to testify against each other, should be eligible to file for bankruptcy jointly and are entitled to the same rights and privileges as federal prison inmates in opposite-sex marriages. The Justice Department runs a number of benefits programs, and Holder said same-sex couples will qualify for them. They include the September 11th Victim Com-

pensation Fund and benefits to surviving spouses of public safety officers who suffer catastrophic or fatal injuries in the line of duty. “In every courthouse, in every proceeding and in every place where a member of the Department of Justice stands on behalf of the United States, U.S. Attorney they will strive General Eric to ensure that Holder same-sex marriages receive the same privileges, protections and rights as opposite-sex marriages under federal law,” Holder said in prepared remarks to the Human Rights Campaign

in New York. The advocacy group works on behalf of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender equal rights. Just as in the civil rights struggles of the 1960s, the stakes in the current generation over same-sex marriage rights “could not be higher,” said Holder. “The Justice Department’s role in confronting discrimination must be as aggressive today as it was in Robert Kennedy’s time,” Holder said of the attorney general who played a leadership role in advancing civil rights. On Monday, the Justice Department will issue a policy memo to its employees instructing them to give lawful same-sex marriages full and equal recognition, to the

greatest extent possible under the law. Holder’s address is the latest application of a Supreme Court ruling that struck down a provision in the Defense of Marriage Act defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman. The decision applies to legally married same-sex couples seeking federal benefits. After the Supreme Court decision last June, the Treasury Department and the IRS said that all legally married gay couples may file joint federal tax returns, even if they reside in states that do not recognize same-sex marriages. The Defense Department said it would grant military spousal benefits to same-sex couples. The Health and Hu-

man Services Department said the Defense of Marriage Act is no longer a bar to states recognizing same-sex marriages under state Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Programs. The U.S. Office of Personnel Management said it is now able to extend benefits to legally married same-sex spouses of federal employees and annuitants. Holder told his audience: • The Justice Department will recognize that same-sex spouses of individuals involved in civil and criminal cases should have the same legal rights as all other married couples, including the right to decline to give testimony that might violate the marital privilege.

Drought-rattled Calif. welcomes weekend storm SAN FRANCISCO – Californians accustomed to complaining about the slightest change in the weather welcomed a robust weekend storm that soaked the northern half of the drought-stricken state Saturday even as rain and snow brought the threat of avalanches, flooding and rock slides. In Willits, one of 17 rural communities that California’s Department of Public Health recently described as dangerously low on water, City Councilman Bruce Burton said he was cheered seeing the water levels in a local reservoir and

his backyard pond creeping up and small streams flowing again. The city in the heart of redwood country usually sees about 50 inches of rain a year and was expected to get about 4 inches by Sunday. “It’s guarded optimism. We are a long ways from where we need to be, but we have to start with some sort of a raindrop,” Burton said. The storm that moved in Thursday, powered by a warm, moisture-packed system from the Pacific Ocean known as a Pineapple Express, dropped more than 11 inches of rain on Marin County’s Mt. Tamalpais and on the Sonoma County town of Guerneville by late

Saturday afternoon, National Weather Service forecaster Bob Benjamin said. Meanwhile, San Francisco, San Jose and other urban areas recorded 1 to 3 inches of rain. With areas north of San Francisco forecast to see another few inches by Sunday, the downpour, while ample enough to flood roadways and prompt warnings that parched streams could be deluged to the point of overflowing, by itself will not solve the state’s drought worries, Strudley said. “The yearly rainfall around here, depending on where you were, was less than 10 percent of normal,” he said.

Budget model uncertain for state health exchanges By PATRICK CONDON The Associated Press ST. PAUL, Minn. – The 14 states running their own health insurance marketplaces had all their startup costs footed by the federal government, but they’re supposed to pay for themselves starting next year under the federal health care reform law. In several states, it’s unclear if it will work out that way. Projected enrollments are lower than expected, meaning the insurance surcharges designed to sustain the exchanges might not generate enough revenue in the years ahead without significant changes in the financing model. Officials in some states are stashing away federal grant money to continue paying for operations beyond the January 2015 target date for financial self-sufficiency. Others are contemplating staffing cuts or boosting insurance surcharges. To date, the 14 states operating their own exchanges, plus the District of Columbia, have received nearly $3.8 billion to start and operate their health insurance exchanges, according to a state-by-state tally by The Associated Press. Several states already are considering options to stave off concerns about solvency: • The exchange in California, which leads the nation in sign-ups, is setting aside $184 million in federal grant money

to cover projected budget deficits through 2016. • Rhode Island is asking for an extension to keep using federal grant money through the first half of next year, and lawmakers and business leaders have expressed concern that the state has no clear plan for paying for the exchange once that money runs out. • Minnesota, Oregon and Washington are among the states pledging to sharply cut costs to remain afloat. • Washington also is considering an increased tax on insurance companies as the state Health Benefit Exchange adjusts to a new funding reality, moving from federal grants totaling almost $150 million this year to $40 million allocated by the Legislature for 2015. More will be known about the exchanges’ financial outlook after a March 31 deadline for people to sign up for insurance or face federal tax penalties, and many states expect pickups in enrollment. But some states aren’t waiting. “What I’ve begun to do is look at what is actually an extremely conservative, very low-level enrollment and begin to develop a budget that could be supported by that enrollment without raising fees,” said Bruce Goldberg, the interim director of Cover Oregon, the exchange in that state. Goldberg is aiming for a 20 percent spending reduction to cover that state’s enrollment shortfall.

Clinics across the country only use some of the components we combine together to treat our patients. We have been treating patients since 1998 and have developed a very specialized approach to addressing chronic pain associated with the neck, back and neuropathy. This experience allowed us to create a protocol that is the ultimate solution for pain relief. Patients tell us about their visits with family doctors, chiropractors, physical therapy and even surgeons and how they are still suffering with the same pain. Our team will evaluate your pain and needs, then determine if you are a candidate for the Superior Health and Wellness Physical Medicine Method.


400 Million suffer with chronic pain in the U.S. At Superior Health and Wellness we have helped thousands of people who suffer with chronic pain and maybe we can help you.

The cause is irrelevant, the real question is what is the solution for me!

Most of the patients with chronic pain conditions that we see show marked improvement with our state-of-the-art decompression tables and our personalized treatment programs. Decompression relieves pressure that builds up on discs and nerves. Decompression therapy achieves relief by creating negative pressure within the disc, referred to as negative intradiscal pressure. This essentially creates a vacuum to draw the bulging and herniated disc material back into the disc space and relieves pressure.This process of non-surgical decompression combined with our specialized rehab programs allow the body to heal itself naturally.

WHY SUPERIOR HEALTH & WELLNESS? The Superior Health and Wellness Physical Medicine team has years of experience and they have continuously invested in the most advanced treatments. This innovative

The Superior Health and Wellness Physical Medicine approach has helped hundreds of people live pain free!

ARE YOU A CANDIDATE? Our spinal decompression has been found to relieve pain associated with disc degeneration, herniated and bulging discs, facet syndrome, and sciatica. Spinal decompression is a great option because spinal surgery is risky.

CALL TODAY to schedule your FREE consultation.


DO I NEED SURGERY? Many of our patients have been told they need surgery and they’re seeking another option. Certain types of back injuries require surgery, however, in most cases we have found that a non-surgical approach, first, can prevent most surgeries. This is due to the treatment methods we use at Superior Health and Wellness to address the cause of the problem. YOU OWE IT TO YOURSELF TO EXPLORE A NON-SURGICAL OPTION FOR YOUR CHRONIC PAIN. Non-Surgical Treatment for Chronic Pain and Back Pain at Superior Health and Wellness

Symptoms of a herniated disc can vary depending on the location of the herniation and the type of soft tissue involved. In many cases severe and unrelenting pain will radiate into the region served by an affected nerve root that is irritated or impinged by the herniated material.


Spinal decompression gently pulls lls th thee ve vertebral joints apart. It is believed this precise ise process produces a negative pressure inside the disc causing any herniated material to slowly recede away from the affected nerve root and back into the disc.




No Known Side Effects

Complications, Poor Outcomes, High Risk


Completely Pain Free

Can be severe for months




It is also believed through this process the disc is re-hydrated, aiding in its restoration.

This is the goal of our treatment, to return your disc to its healthy state so you can live life free from pain and begin to enjoy life once again!

What Superior Health & Wellness Patients are Saying


I was prescribed pain killers and muscle-relaxants by my doctor for the worst pain I’d ever felt in my life! But, popping pills as prescribed didn’t reduce the pain at all. I was in such bad shape, I almost rolled up into a ball of pain. After only a short period of time of treatment Superior Health & Wellness has completely relieved the pain and now I have my life back!

Official: Park district hopes to have decision on project in next 5 years • MARKET

Community pool usage for 2013

Continued from page A1 plans to buy the property, which is the former Crystal Highlands Golf Course at 8917 Ackman Road, and potentially build a community recreation center and swimming facility sometime in the future. However, there currently is no development plan for the property. Whether an aquatic center will be built is still up in the air, but a new pool or aquatic center would add to the variety of recreational opportunities and areas already in the county. Residents in communities with pools are the overwhelming users of those facilities. Nonresidents make up a smaller fraction of pool passes sold. In Crystal Lake, the roughly 40,500 residents have access to both Main Beach and West Beach, which are run by the park district, and the Three Oaks Recreation Area, which is run by the city. Crystal Lake Park District Executive Director Jason Herbster said even though Main Beach and Three Oaks Recreational Center already are available to residents, there might be a need for an aquatic center. “There’s some people who don’t like to swim in natural bodies of water. There’s people who are either beach people or pool people,” Herbster said. “That’s something we hear a lot, ‘I don’t want to swim in the lake, I don’t want my kids swimming in the lake.’ ... A lot of people prefer pools. “There’s a lot of people who are coming up to this community from other areas who have had swimming pools and kind of expect it,” Herbster added. “The closest pools to here are Huntley and Woodstock. To have an outdoor swimming pool in this community certainly wouldn’t be a bad thing.” At Three Oaks Recreation Area, 60,210 people used the beach area of the park in 2013, said Eric Helm, deputy city manager of Crystal Lake. The number is not recorded on a resident and nonresident basis because admission and cost policies make it difficult to track. Many annual events that bring people from out of county and state contribute to the number, making it more of a destination compared to other county outdoor aquatic parks. As a whole, Three Oaks Recreation Area attracted 88,232 people last year. According to numbers from

Revenue generated from combined season beach passes to residents and nonresidents fell nearly $2,000 between 2012 and 2013 – from $11,283 to $9,360. Daily beach passes also dropped at both Main and West Beach. Daily pass revenue fell from $61,682 to $52,075 at Main Beach and from $6,892 to $4,069 at West Beach. While that revenue fell, park district officials said beach usage figures did not include numbers for swim lessons, group reservations, field trip admissions, park district camp numbers and people who come in for boat rentals or boating lessons. Lake in the Hills Village Administrator Gerald Sagona said at a recent Village Board meeting, the village doesn’t have consistency in parks and recreation services when it comes to aquatic features. That would be one area where an aquatic center could be a benefit to the village. Only part of the village, which has the population of about 29,000 people, is in the Huntley Park District, which has Stingray Bay. Sagona added, having an aquatic center or recreation center at that property can help drive traffic to the area and potentially benefit commercial developers. Sagona said under the draft annexation agreement, if a facility is built, the park district would provide a special Lake in the Hills user fee in between a lower resident fee and a higher nonresident fee. An aquatic or recreation facility would be the first piece of park district equipment in the village, Sagona said. Currently, Lake in the Hills has a splash pad for children to use at Sunset Park. The village also sells passes for people to go swimming at

its two beaches on the east side of town. Trudy Wakeman is the Parks and Recreation director for Lake in the Hills. She has lived and worked in communities that have aquatic centers. She said there would be a benefit if the Crystal Lake Park District built an aquatic center. “Anything that will enhance the experience in [residents’] neighborhoods has to be a positive,” Wakeman said. Even though not every community has a pool, children are able to learn how to swim whether it’s in a pool, lake or pond, Wakeman said. In Algonquin, more than 90 percent of its season pass-

es are sold to residents. Small portion of the passes go to Lake in the Hills residents and people from other communities. In 2012, Algonquin started a neighborly rate program, which offers discounts from the nonresident rate for season pass members who reside outside of Algonquin, according to an email from Assistant to the Village Manager Mike Kumbera. “We expect this to increase overall pass sales by targeting a larger market area,” Kumbera wrote. “Additionally, the Algonquin pool will be offering expanded aquatic offerings for adults in 2014 which is expected to increase pool

utilization and membership.” Herbster wouldn’t estimate how much an aquatic center and community center would cost to build. Herbster said the park district has had preliminary discussion of what it could do with the property if it wasn’t developed including selling it or making it into a passive park. “Other than that, we really haven’t gotten to that point,” Herbster said. Herbster said the district hopes to have a decision on whether to move forward with the project in two to five years. “There’s still a long way to go,” Herbster said.

Selection process will be competitive • RULES Continued from page A1 rules also call for about $50,000 in application, registration and annual fees. “Clearly, what the state of Illinois is attempting to do is stop people who have income coming in from elicit sources like the drug trade,” said Nicholas Williams, an attorney for HW Holdings in Bloomington who owns medical supply stores in the region. He said his company is interested in expanding to medical marijuana dispensaries. He called the application “beyond complex” and expects it to likely require hundreds of pages of business plans. He said the selection process will be competitive. “You better know the color of the paint on the walls, otherwise you’re going to have trouble getting picked,” Williams said.

The proposed rules also say that 21 of the 60 dispensaries required under the law would be outside of the Chicago area. The application process for cultivation centers is similar. The state would charge a $100,000 annual renewal permit fee and $25,000 application fee under the proposed rules. No single person or entity would be allowed to have more than three cultivation center permits. They’ll need $250,000 in liquid assets available. Bradley Vallerius, a consultant for medical marijuana business owners, said these rules are fair and similar to states such as Colorado and Massachusetts. Vallerius, who wrote a book on Illinois medical marijuana law, is working to pool together different people and businesses to own a cultivation center. He said he is focused more on central and southern Illinois districts be-

cause the Chicago area is likely to be very competitive. But Julie Falco, who uses cannabis to treat her multiple sclerosis, fears the rules will make the drug too pricey. She said higher state costs for businesses could mean more expenses for marijuana users. “It’s definitely the concern amongst a lot of patients,” Falco said. “Are we going to get a reasonable amount of medicine that we have to completely break the bank on?” The Department of Public Health has issued proposed regulations that would require medical marijuana patients to be fingerprinted, undergo a background check and pay $150 a year to get special photo identification. “It’s clear this is a merit-based system. This is not, ‘Hey, I’ve got some money. I qualify for it. Pull my name out of a hat.’ There is going to be a rigorous review of applications,” Williams said.

Speaker: ‘[Sex slavery] is the most prevalent form of human slavery’ • BREAKFAST Continued from page A1 room to pray as well as take action. “In developed nations, [sex slavery] is the most prevalent form of human slavery,” she said. Mickelwait, Hultgren, R-Winfield, former U.S. Rep. Don Manzullo of Egan and panelists State Sen. Karen McConnaughay and Ben Anderson of the Moody Bible Institute all called for an end to pornography as a first step to curbing demand. “We have this image of ‘Pretty Woman,’ the happy hooker,” Mickelwait said, flipping a slide on a screen presentation to a photo of a sad, bedraggled-looking blonde. “This is the real face of prostitution. The average age of entry is 13 to 14.” Whether they are drawn in out of financial despair, recruited in a state of youthful vulnerability, sold into the trade by their parents or outright kidnapped, and whether they are minors or middle-aged, Exodus Cry considers prostitutes a part of human trafficking, Mickelwait said. “To abolish it, we have to abolish prostitution and we have to abolish porn,” she said. Hultgren said that his viewing of “Nefarious” moved him to share it with others in Washington, D.C., and that legislative progress has been made. But more needs to be done, he said. “We see the connection between prostitution and human trafficking. Where

prostitution is allowed and winked at, human trafficking grows,” he said. “Every single child who is pulled into this, every single young woman who is pulled into this, their life is worth fighting for … this is something that can bring Democrats, Republicans, liberals and conservatives together.” McHenry County Board member Nick Provenzano said regardless of the age of the women allegedly involved, recent prostitution arrests in McHenry County highlight the fact that the county is not immune. The December arrests at a Crystal Lake massage parlor involved women in their 40s and 50s. “I don’t think anybody who has a viable choice would choose prostitution,” Provenzano said. Twenty-one-year-old Noelle Viard of Crystal Lake attended Saturday’s breakfast as part of a nonprofit group called Kingdom Sending Center. She said she was pleased to see the turnout and looks forward to seeing how locals respond to the message. “I’m excited to see the local community rally around seeing women come out of the sex trade, become restored, and get healing and counseling,” she said. “To see that become a passion for the area is really exciting.” Some in attendance received awards during the event, including Jackie Larson, executive director of Informed Choices, who received the Henry Hyde Celebrating Life Award, and Manzullo, named Patriots United’s Patriot of the Year.

Gov. Quinn is procrastinator of the year Gov. Pat Quinn might have put himself into contention for a major award. Members of the Illinois Procrastinators Society might take one look at Quinn’s successful bid to postpone his budget address for five weeks, nod in agreement, and nominate him as its Man of the Year. Quinn has been governor for five years. One would think that, by now, he would have the state budget-writing process down “pat.” However, when Quinn approaches the podium on the last Gov. Pat Wednesday of March, it will be the Quinn latest that he has delivered his annual budget speech. Why? Let’s check the record. In 2009, he delivered his budget speech March 18. Lawmakers, who had recently booted Rod Blagojevich out of office, were only too happy to give Quinn extra time. In 2010, he delivered it on March 10. In 2011, he delivered it on Feb. 16. In 2012, he delivered it on Feb. 22. In 2013, he delivered it on March 6. This year, the budget address was supposed to be delivered Feb. 19, as prescribed by law. But because of a law that Quinn signed last week, the address won’t be until March 26. Every taxpayer in the state awaits this year’s address with keen interest. They well remember the lame-duck temporary income tax increase agreed to by the Legislature and Quinn back in January 2011, which raised individual and business income tax rates significantly. Those tax hikes are supposed to start sunsetting in 11 months. While Quinn has declined to state his position on whether they should be renewed, his budget address does not have the luxury of equivocation. To accurately plan the 2014-15 state budget, Quinn must state what he thinks should be done about revenue. His administration already predicted that the expiration of the temporary income tax increase would mean a revenue decline of about $2 billion for the second half of the 2014-15 fiscal year. Hovering over all this is the specter of the primary election March 18, in which Quinn faces token opposition, and the general election Nov. 4. From Quinn’s perspective, it’s better to delay bad news for voters until after an election. Because he previously persuaded the Legislature to postpone budget addresses, why not get them to agree to delay this one until after the primary? People who are skeptical of Quinn’s motives might have hit the nail on the head. For its part, the governor’s office put forth perfectly logical reasons for seeking the delay. For one thing, the governor needs more time to consider late-arriving economic news, according to Brooke Anderson, a spokeswoman. For another, Quinn wants to lay out a five-year budget blueprint “to really show the meaningful impact over the next five years and where Illinois could be,” Anderson said. Never mind that a single-year budget is all that Quinn is required to produce. Many Republicans scoffed at what they saw as a politically driven delay. But we imagine procrastinators across the state stood up and cheered. They, better than anyone, appreciate passable, if insincere, excuses for putting off distasteful chores. We don’t know whether Quinn will win reelection in the fall. We hope not. But for his performance in putting off the delivery of bad political news until after the primary, he’s certainly the front-runner to receive Man of the Year honors from Illinois’ procrastinators – if they ever get around to it.


ACA costing jobs When it comes to Obamacare, the bad news train keeps rollin’. A stunning report from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office more than tripled the number of Americans who, thanks to the Affordable Care Act, likely will be out of the workforce by 2024, from the equivalent of 800,000 full-time workers to 2.5 million. Since taxpayer subsidies to purchase insurance will shrink and premiums rise with workers’ income, there will be a disincentive for some individuals to work more, the report notes. Expanded eligibility for Medicaid is a similar disincentive. Meanwhile the financial penalty paid by larger employers who don’t provide adequate coverage to workers is likely to chill working hours, too. But don’t take the CBO’s word for it – just ask the sales clerks from Lord & Taylor or Saks Fifth Avenue or Target, whose employers already have announced plans to drop coverage for part-time workers because of the cost. How long before more full-time workers become part time? Boston Herald

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Poverty rise cause To the Editor: I find it amazing that the Northwest Herald and almost all media can spend so much time discussing poverty without mentioning either the causes or the cure. The major reasons for the increase in poverty were the radical changes in immigration and trade policies. During the period from 1950 to 1975, immigration rose from about 250,000 to 450,000 annually. At the same time, there was a mild labor shortage. The result was that average hourly wages adjusted for inflation rose 95 percent and Americans living in poverty declined 35 percent. Then, the U.S. began importing the world’s poor while exporting middle class jobs. In the mid-1970s, immigration began to soar, reaching annual rates for legal and illegal immigrants of more than 1.5 million. Since 1975, more than 60 million immigrants (including their subsequent children) poured into the U.S., the vast majority poor and uneducated. Simultaneously, millions of middle class jobs were sent overseas. The predictable result was that hourly wages adjusted for inflation failed to increase for the past 39 years. Americans living in poverty soared from 25 million to more than 36 million. About two-thirds of the increase were Hispanics. Having a job no longer lifted millions of work-

ers out of poverty. The answers to poverty are obvious: reduce the flood of cheap labor by cutting immigration to 1960 levels (about 300,000 annually) and oppose trade agreements that continue the exodus of middle class jobs. Don’t expect the media to support either solution. Americans must demand Congress begin representing their interests.

Can’t count To the Editor: If you believe the latest government figures on unemployment (6.7 percent) and inflation or consumer price index (about 1 percent), I have some land in Florida I’ll sell you by quick claim deed. I believe everyone not in a hospital or in a wheelchair between 18 and 65 should be considered unemployed. Maybe our computers cannot count that high. Inflation or CPI of 1 percent – they don’t count food and fuel. And according to Time, medical expense is only 1 percent of the average family expense. What do they count as family expense? In the mid-1990s, they changed the way inflation is calculated for Social Security. We would be getting about 40 percent more under the

old system. An article in the Wall Street Journal by Mary O’Grady says that Argentina has been playing with the numbers longer than the U.S. Officially, inflation is a 10.5 percent. There are private research people who put the inflation at 30 percent. Interest rates are so high I cannot find them listed in the financial papers. Police in the city of Cordoba went on strike. Looters looted more than 1,000 stores until finally the police got their 33 percent raise. Gentlemen, keep those guns handy. Walter J. Steffens Johnsburg

Can’t match qualifications To the Editor: It has been my honor to be the McHenry County treasurer for nearly 18 years. When my term ends this year, I am 100 percent support-

ing Glenda Miller to take my place. I have known Glenda for more than 50 years, and watched her work during her 20-plus years in banking, and more recently in her 17 years in the Treasurer’s Office as chief deputy treasurer. She is the only candidate that has both banking and treasurer’s experience. This year, nearly $1 billion dollars will pass through the office, and it takes someone with treasurer’s experience to deal with that amount of tax money. Glenda has the education. She has a master’s degree. She has the banking experience, and she has 17 years Treasurer’s Office experience. Lastly, and most importantly, she deeply cares for the people of McHenry County, and always puts them first. No one can match her qualifications. William LeFew Harvard

‘Alone Yet Not Alone’ vs. Academy’s ‘ethics’ In a world where Woody Allen can get a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes at the same time his adopted daughter accuses him of sexually abusing her when she was a child (Allen has repeatedly denied it), and where a film “The Wolf of Wall Street” sets a record for use of the F-word, it is a wonderment that an obscure, low-budget film called “Alone Yet Not Alone” has had its Best Original Song Oscar nomination withdrawn for allegedly violating ethical rules. The Los Angeles Times writes that Cheryl Boone Isaacs, president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, “told The Times that the ‘key point’ in the academy’s nullification of (songwriter Bruce) Broughton’s nomination was its violation of Rule 5.3, requiring that the credits of composer and lyricist be removed from the DVD of eligible songs sent to members of the music branch. “’The idea,’ Isaacs says, ‘is that people are voting solely for the song and not who wrote it.’ By emailing branch members, Broughton, a former academy governor and current member of the music branch’s executive committee, violated that anonymity.” Big-budget films spend large amounts of money campaigning for Oscars with fullpage ads in Variety and other trade publications, as well as glitzy parties for Academy members. Studios send DVDs “for your consideration” to members of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA). Is any of that campaigning anonymous? How does a low-budget film with far fewer re-


VIEWS Cal Thomas sources get noticed, if not by campaigning? Why does emailing voters, even if a technicality was breached, violate the rules when splashy ads, parties and the mailing of DVDs to Academy members do not? One clue may be in the visceral reaction to the film itself from the secular-progressive left. It is a movie made by a Christian group. Despite a record of large profits and high TV ratings for films with a Christian message, they continue to embarrass some filmmakers, who apparently think Americans spend their days swearing at one another, having promiscuous sex, shooting people, blowing up stuff and driving fast. In a smarmy article on The Daily Beast website titled “Bible Thumpers’ Oscar Fail,” the film is characterized as having been made by an independent group headed by a “sugar daddy of the religious right” and members of “the right-wing evangelical filmmaking world.” Maybe the film should be rated “W” for wholesomeness and its message about God not abandoning people in distress. Does the secular left fear such a film might lead some people to rely on a power higher than the federal government? It’s doubtful any of the film’s critics have seen the movie as it had only a one-week run last September in selected cities to qualify for Oscar consideration. A wider release is

scheduled for this summer, but the secular left only has to hear “evangelical,” “conservative” and above all “Christian” to set them attacking like rabid dogs. If anyone cares about the film’s plot at this point, the website Yahoo! Movies describes it as “... an alleged true-life tale from 1755 of two young sisters kidnapped by Native Americans after a raid on their family farm.” The girls maintain their faith, which helps them endure and overcome their circumstances. The production company, Enthuse Entertainment, based in San Antonio, Texas, describes itself as making “God-honoring, faith-based, family-friendly films that inspire the human spirit to seek and know God.” Given this parentage, it’s a miracle the song was nominated. The title song is sung by painter, author and speaker Joni Earackson Tada, a quadriplegic, who is known and respected among many evangelicals. Whether “Alone Yet Not Alone” deserves an Oscar should be up to the voters, not the Academy hierarchy. Whatever its merits, the title sounds more appealing than the 2005 Best Original Song winner, “It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp.” Maybe the only bad publicity is no publicity. The controversy over this song has lifted the film from obscurity. Regardless, the Academy should restore the song’s nomination because of the clear advantage in money, promotion – and, yes, campaigning – that other nominated songs have enjoyed.

Three running for GOP nod Candidates vying for two open seats on County Board District 1 By KEVIN P. CRAVER Three Republican candidates with decidedly different skill sets and backgrounds are seeking two open seats in District 1 of the McHenry County Board. Four-year incumbent Bob Nowak, formerly planning and zoning director for Cary, is running against two challengers – retired Air Force officer turned space policy guru An-

drew Gasser of Fox River Grove and David Stieper, a Barrington Hills attorney with a master’s in business administration. Nowak, now living in Lake in the Hills, touted county government’s achievements, its balanced budget and top-notch credit rating during a Thursday interview with the Northwest Herald editorial board. “It’s a great place to live, and I want to see that growth to continue,” Nowak said. But Gasser and Stieper both stated

that county government has a lot of work to do when it comes to tax relief and accountability. Both candidates pledged to not accept the health insurance and pension benefits that come with the office, and Gasser went further by pledging to limit himself to two terms. “The bottom line is that we can’t afford the cost of this government anymore, and I’m running to put a stop to it,” Stieper said. District 1 covers southern and eastern Algonquin townships and a

sliver of Grafton Township, including parts of Algonquin, Cary, Fox River Grove, Lake in the Hills and Barrington Hills. The two winners will run Nov. 6 against Democratic incumbent Nick Chirikos of Algonquin for the two open seats. Both Gasser and Stieper talked about their blogs in establishing their bona fides when it comes to cutting government spending.

SNOW EXPECTED TO TAPER OFF CRYSTAL LAKE – The roughly 3 inches of snow McHenry County received Saturday is not expected to increase with any more accumulation in the coming week. Despite the possibility of a light dusting overnight Saturday, meteorologist Gino Izzi said the most recent snowfall should be the only significant accumulation in the near future. But temperatures are expected to reach 20 degrees below zero with wind chills on Sunday and Monday. Hope exists for a breakthrough into warmer temperatures Thursday when it could reach 30 degrees, according the National Weather Service. Some light snow showers could occur Thursday and Friday but no accumulation is expected. Izzi said he hopes is Thursday’s potential break into 30 degrees will lead to a string of days in the 20s and 30s.

Students learn to hit the high notes McHenry program brings hands-on learning of music, instruments to kids By EMILY K. COLEMAN McHENRY – Some kids immediately run across a room to hit the drum. Some of the older kids are more studious, methodically inspecting and trying out each instrument. The Children’s Music Day, which is in its second year at McHenry West High School, gave 5 to 10 year olds a chance to try their hand at performing, composing and conducting Saturday morning.

D-47 OKs 2014 fee increases D-158 approves $1.7 Student registration hikes aim to curtail projected deficits By JEFF ENGELHARDT

Vera A. Kozelka 83, Algonquin

An instrument petting zoo introduces the kids to 15 to 20 instruments, so they can feel what it’s like to play a clarinet or how heavy the symbols actually are, said District 156’s fine arts coordinator, Brian Weidner. They’re also given the chance to conduct a group of high school music students, he said, adding that, especially with the 5-year-olds, it’s mostly a matter of the child waving their arms around and the high schoolers doing their thing.

CRYSTAL LAKE – Student registration fees will increase for the 2014 school year at Crystal Lake School District 47 as it tries to combat a continuing decline in state support and the rising cost of education and maintenance. After remaining materially unchanged for 20 years, registration and facility rental fees at District 47 will begin to increase toward county-wide averages in an effort to support educational and maintenance costs. The board-approved fees for the 2014-15 school year will increase preschool registration costs from $50 to $60; kin-

“We’ll look at it separately each year. We’re not going to move them above the average for the county.” Jeff Mason District 47 board president

dergarten costs will increase from $40 to $48; elementary school costs will increase from $60 to $72; and middle school fees will increase the most from $75 to $90. Rental fees for gymnasiums will increase to $22 an hour and $15 an hour for multipurpose rooms and cafeterias.

Board president Jeff Mason said the board saw an opportunity to shift more cost to users after seeing the district had the lowest registration fees in the county. He said it would take about five years of increases to pull even with the average. “We’ll look at it separately each year,” Mason said of future increases, noting they would not always be as large. “We’re not going to move them above the average for the county.” Increases were pursued in part because of five-year projections showing the district will likely run deficits. Deficits – once projected to hit $587,692 by the 2017-18

million in new hires Ongoing budget process could refine number of new jobs By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO HUNTLEY – District 158 officials could dole out $1.7 million for new hires that would help manage a growing high school population and larger-than-desirable class sizes at the middle schools. District board members recently granted the administration the authority to spend up to $1.7 million on new personnel for the upcoming 2014-15 school year,

as officials start refining the annual district budget for a late summer passage. The proposed hires, ranging from high school teachers to security aides, are prioritized based on need and the district’s budgetary constraints, said Jessica Lombard, assistant superintendent of human resources. The district also has restructured positions in past years to prevent new spending. “These positions are all that we think we need; however, we need to be fiscally responsible and figure out what positions fit within the budget,” Lombard said. The district has planned $896,000 for top-priority

Winter conditions not letting up


Firefighter remembered for dedication Wurtz battled cancer for two years before passing By JEFF ENGELHARDT WOODSTOCK – One look around Michael Wurtz’s wedding was all anyone needed to see to understand the passion he had for his job. Wurtz tied the knot in 2012 at Woodstock Fire/ Resuce District Station 3 – one of the stations he Michael spent more than Wurtz a decade at sacrificing all he could to protect the community, even through cancer. Wurz, 47, died Friday at the JourneyCare Hospice Facility in Woodstock after a two-year battle with cancer. Woodstock Fire Chief Ralph Webster said Wurtz battled the disease with the intensity and relentlessness that made him one of the fiercest firefighters on the squad. “There were a couple fires

we went out on where there was high humidity and just awful conditions and he would work until he became dehydrated and passed out,” Webster recalled. “He would work until total exhaustion and he brought that same fight to cancer.” Wurtz started with the department in 2002 before becoming a full-time firefighter in 2006. Full-time work with the fire department was only part of Wurtz’s service to the community as he also served a police officer for McCullom Lake and a member of the Lake/ McHenry Country Wildland Firefighting Team. Cancer did little to quell Wurtz’s intense work ethic, Webster said, as he still performed some shift duties up until mid-November. Woodstock Fire Capt. Michael Hill said Wurtz was as great of a person as he was a firefighter, and his death will leave a void in the department and community. “Mike had the heart of a true firefighter,” Hill said. “He always had a positive attitude

and was always someone you could count on in any situtation. He would go an extra mile even when he didn’t have to.” Through Wurtz’s battle with cancer, the departmant also rallied together and showed the family connection firefighters share is more than a slogan. The department held a fundraiser in November to support Wurtz and his family and helped at his house and with his family anytime they could, Hill said. Firefighters even donated sick time and vacation time so that Wurtz could stay on the roster as long as possible. “It’s very well known that in the fire service we think of each other as family,” Hill said. “We lost a brother.” Wurtz is survived by his wife, three daughters, two stepchildren and many extended family members. A public visitation will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday at the Woodstock Assembly of God Church on 1201 Dean St. in Woodstock. Firefighters also will do a procession throughout Woodstock Tuesday, going to the stations Wurtz served at.

High school, elementary students thrive in program Serenity Giles, 6, of McHenry looks to her mallets Saturday while trying out the xylophone during the McHenry High School’s second annual Children’s Music Day.

• MUSIC Continued from page B1 The McHenry’s Tri-M Music Honor Society chapter started the program last year with the goal of reaching out to elementary school students before they hit the fifth-grade band program, he said. In its first year, it drew 120 kids. “I have a 5-year-old at home, and anytime you bring music into play and allow them to participate, there’s a natural tendency to flock to it,” he said. And it’s not just the elementary-aged students who were getting something out of the program, Weidner said, adding that some of students were considering going into music education because of it. One of those students is Lizzie Kruse, a junior at McHenry East High School,

who had given that career path some thought but had the possibility brought home through the program. She ran the composition station last year where children were given staff paper and stickers. When their creations were complete, she would play the songs on the piano. “It was so amazing to see the looks on their faces when they realized it was their mu-

sic they were hearing,” the alto saxophone player said. With the program still so new, Weidner doesn’t know if it will pay off in the long run, but the band program has been growing at a healthy clip regardless. The district has expanded its offerings over the past decade, adding differentiated levels to its bands and choirs, a music theory class and a guitar program.

County property taxes among highest in nation • CANDIDATES Continued from page B1 Gasser on his blog has shed light on allegations of overspending and bureaucratic bloating at the McHenry County Mental Health Board. As founder of Tea Party in Space, a group dedicated to applying free-market principles to space exploration, he received national recognition for pointing out billions of dollars in cost overruns on NASA’s planned James Webb Space Telescope. Stieper wrote on a blog called Preserve Barrington Hills to highlight allegations of mismanagement by Barrington Hills elected officials. Gasser pointed out that McHenry County’s property taxes are consistently rated among the highest in the nation by the nonpartisan Tax Foundation. While county

government accounts for about 10 percent of a homeowner’s tax bill, Gasser said it needs to run a lot leaner. He added that his election would give the County Board something it does not have now – an Armed Forces veteran – and that county government would be the better for it. “Run our county like a business, and not so much like a government,” Gasser said. When asked about any County Board decision he disagreed with the most, Nowak first answered that he to his knowledge has never cast a negative vote. But he later clarified that those majority votes included the county’s choice in recent years to keep its levy flat and voluntarily reject the inflationary increase it is entitled to under the tax cap. He did not single out anything particular in the county budget

for potential elimination. “I was very surprised to see how tight the budget is in McHenry County. There isn’t a lot of excess money being spent,” Nowak said. His challengers disagreed. Gasser said the county could save money by outsourcing its information technology services and Animal Control. Stieper said the county should take a serious look at privatizing Valley Hi Nursing Home, which is now in the black, yet also receives a tax levy from county taxpayers. “It’s easy not to raise the levy when it’s jacked up so high already,” Stieper said. The challengers also had less-than-kind words for the proposed continuous-flow intersection at Randall and Algonquin roads, part of a plan to widen Randall to six lanes. District 1 is on the south side of the intersection.

District spent about $417K on new hires last school year • HIRES Continued from page B1 hires, including seven new high school teachers, two seventh-grade teachers and multiple technology positions to accommodate the district’s expanding tablet initiative. The essential hires primarily address shifting student needs within the district. Huntley High School is expected to add about 150 students next year and then more students in future years, Lombard said. At Marlowe Middle School, certain class sizes are larger than classes at Heineman Middle School.

Certain class sizes for Marlowe seventh graders are larger than the district’s desirable average of the upper 20s, Lombard said. The proposed teacher hires at the middle school level would help manage class sizes for Marlowe’s current crop of seventh grade teachers, she said. Last year, the district spent roughly $417,000 on new hires, including a high school department chairperson and teachers, according to district figures. Officials also reshuffled dollars in other areas to support tablet-related hires and add special education positions for the current school year.

D-47 expected to have $181K surplus, gradually reduce deficit • INCREASES Continued from page B1 school year – would be curtailed with the revenue from the registration fee increases as well as postponement to major projects, such as oneto-one iPad deployment, early childhood classroom expansion and building and air conditioning improvements. With the adjustments, District 47 now is expected to have a $181,000 surplus in 2014-15 and gradually reduce deficits in following years until it is roughly $91,600 in the 2017-18 school year instead of the originally projected $587,692. While the financial moves

will help, District 47 chief financial officer Kevin Werner warned unknown variables could cause more budgetary damage. He said the looming pension reform, decline in general state aid and transportation reimbursements and the outcome of the next teachers’ contract could all increase deficits. The state’s decision to prorate general state aid at 88.7 percent this year was significantly higher than the district’s conservative estimates, increasing the district’s operating fund surplus from an initially projected $182,009 to $644,141. It helped the district turn an overall deficit across the four major funds into a small surplus.

Stieper said a CFI makes no sense, and called the projected time savings minimal compared to the cost. He likewise aired concerns about political and family connections between some County Board members and the companies that last week won the design and right-of-way contracts. Gasser said that in his last round of walking the district and knocking on 100 doors, he could not find a single resident who supports the concept. “When somebody in government says something needs to be done, it’s time to fear for your wallet,” Gasser said. Nowak, who voted last week in favor of the contracts, reiterated that building a CFI is not set in stone, and that the designers could come back with other alternatives.

Making time for hoops, horns HAMPSHIRE – Kids these days. They’re so lazy. Remember when we were kids? Remember how we used to walk 10 miles through the snow, uphill both ways, on our way to and from school? Not anymore. Not with these apathetic adolescents. Take Danny Duchaj, for example. Do you want to know what the Hampshire sophomore did at the end of a recent school day? He practiced basketSarah Nader – ball – he’s on the boys’ varsity team as a Danny Duchaj plays the trumpet with the Hampshire pep band during 6-foot-5 center – and then he stuck around a girls basketball game Wednesday in Hampshire. Duchaj also plays on for another couple of hours to play trumpet in the concert band at the girls’ Hampshire’s boys basketball team.


VIEWS Tom Musick varsity game against Woodstock. By the time Duchaj returned home about 8 p.m., he was ready to begin his ascent up Homework Mountain. It likely would require a couple of hours. “Probably,” Duchaj said with a smile. “I’ve got a lot tonight.” Pathetic. Braden Bloomberg sat quietly a few feet away, but he was equally as guilty.

Bloomberg is a junior forward on the Whip-Purs’ varsity team and plays the bari sax – that’s slang for baritone saxophone, which we hard-working adults obviously already knew – in the concert band at girls games. Bloomberg, like Duchaj, chose not to go home between basketball and band. As he spoke, the first bell of the next school day was about 12 hours away. “It’s just something else to do,” Bloomberg said of being in the band. “It’s fun. “I want to be busy. I don’t want to have a reason to go home and just sit on

Harvard top team; CLC 2nd

Whatever works CL South’s Barone uses unorthodox style to win

Hornets advance 9 wrestlers to Lakes By PATRICK MASON HAMPSHIRE – The Crystal Lake Central wrestling team entered Saturday’s Class 2A Hampshire Regional with five consecutive regional titles and looking for its sixth. Although Central was the favorite on paper, Harvard turned in an impressive performance and unseated the Tigers to win the regional title Anthony Luis by more than 20 points with a score of 174.50. It was Harvard’s 27th regional title in 28 years. The Tigers (153) came in second, with Johnsburg (123) placing third in the eight-team regional. The Hornets dominated the day, sending 13 wrestlers to a possible 14 place matches, nine of which will advance to the Feb. 15 Lakes Sectional. The team victory also sends Harvard to the Antioch Dual Team Sectional on Feb. 25. “I’m just happy for our kids,” said Hornets coach Tim Haak, shifting the focus to the wrestlers during his last year as coach before retirement. “We won a lot of close matches and had 13 kids in the place matches, which says something about out consistency. “We took another step forward today.” Justin Wilcox, Anthony Luis, Logan Streit, Christian Kramer, Isaiah Rudd, Matt Wheeler, Zack Martin, Christian Popoca and Adam Freimund advanced for the Hornets. For the Tigers, the day didn’t start out as planned. Heavyweight Connor Hines was ejected from the regional during the first session after his frustration got the better of him. “He wants to use poor language and swear,” Tigers coach Justen Lehr said. “If you can’t control your temper, that’s going to happen.”

By ROB SMITH McHENRY – Crystal Lake South wrestler Eric Barone might want to consider a stint in the circus after his win in the 145-pound championship match Saturday at the Class 3A McHenry Regional. Barone defeated Lake Zu- Good day rich’s Brandon for D-C Arteaga, 4-3, to win the regionDundee-Crown al title and demis the top local onstrated an unwrestling team usual move to get out of a take- at the Class 3A down. Arteaga DeKalb Regional. PAGE C4 had Barone’s leg a couple of times during the match. Barone said he didn’t want to get tripped into a takedown, so he climbed up Arteaga with his free leg and arms. The move looked more like acrobatics than wrestling, with Barone almost balancing on top of Arteaga’s shoulders. “I knew he was tall,” Barone said. “I was trying to keep my feet away.” Gators coach Ross Ryan said Barone is a little funky and unorthodox at times on the mat. “[Barone’s] a gamer. He wrestles his best when the spotlight is on and it’s the loudest,” Ryan said. “Tight matches are good for him.” South and McHenry qualified six wrestlers each for the Barrington Sectional on Feb. 15 with top-three finishes. Cary-Grove five wrestlers out, and Prairie Ridge got two. Deerfield won the team sectional with 155 points, followed by Barrington (142), McHenry (126) and South (118). “I think this is one of the toughest ones,” McHenry coach Will Gaddy said. “I think if you get out of this regional, you have a good chance of placing at sectionals.”

The Norwegian men’s curling team outdid themselves Saturday during the first practice at the Sochi Games. After making a splash in 2010 with their wild clothes, they showed up Saturday wearing what they called “rose-painting knickers” with soccer socks of the Norwegian national team.

ll eyes (well, at least a lot of eyes) will be on Sochi, Russia, for the next couple of weeks as the Olympics take place. Sports editor Jon Styf and columnist Tom Musick discuss:

Musick: Bob Costas showed up on my TV screen wearing wideframed glasses the other night. He explained that his left eye was pink and swollen, and he needed his glasses to read the teleprompter. Costas’ doctors told him that it was some type of infection that should be fine in a few days. And thus marked my official introduction to the Sochi Olympics. Styf: It likely won’t be the only infection we hear about coming from the games. Because, well, some of the hotels have water that shouldn’t be used near your eyes. And others apparently have cameras in the bathrooms, for some reason, deputy prime minister for Olympic prep Dmitry Kozak accidentally admitted on Thursday. I’m calling it now Tom, for the length of these games I’m following Sochi bathroom rules. Always urinate while seated. Don’t throw the toilet paper in the toilet once used, instead throw them into a non-existant waste bin. I’m also thinking of installing a second toilet, right next to the one I already have. And .... never have a shower curtain. Musick: I’m pretty sure at least one of those things is against our company’s human resource policy. I’m taking the alternative approach during the Olympics and defying Russian norms. For instance, I vow not to shoot any stray dogs or commit any human rights violations for the entirety of February. Styf: For the first time in recent memory, I am actually interested in the Winter Games outside of the hockey. It has nothing to do with the competition. It has more to do with the fact that Russia didn’t even think to ship enough pillows for the athletes to sleep to Sochi. Seriously, this isn’t being overblown and it’s only going to get worse. NBC doesn’t look like it will be covering it the right way (they never have, with their odd tape-delayed format). But at least we have plenty of print journalists there to tell us what is really happening. Musick: Yes, the bulk of my viewing of NBC’s coverage so far has informed me that a) Costas has a gnarly eye, and b) Sochi is wonderful and beautiful and hooray for Earth. But I’m right there with you, I’m keeping closer track of these games largely because I am drawn to the theater of the absurd. Forget the sportswriters – the only lower life forms are politicians – but have you seen the accommodations for the Olympic hockey players? The rooms include three small beds, separated by maybe a couple of feet and tiny nightstands. It’s funny to imagine Jonathan Toews, Patrick Sharp and Duncan Keith all whispering in the dark and talking about girls, except for the fact that two of those players (Sharp and Keith) are married with children. Styf: Children don’t prevent you from whispering in the dark. In fact, they make you do it more so you don’t wake them up. But Sochi .... yeah ... this isn’t going to end well.

San Francisco Giants pitching prospect Ian Gardeck heads to spring training this week, looking to build off last year’s 4-3 season with the Augusta Greenjackets. The 2009 Crystal Lake South graduate posted a 3.21 ERA, picked up a save and struck out 66 hitters in 56 innings while being used in a number of roles. In the offseason, Gardeck played a role as a body double in an episode of the NBC drama “Chicago Fire,” which will air Feb. 25.

You go into spring training and it’s always a fresh start. It’s a new year. Obviously, they still remember what you did last year, but it’s a fresh start. You’ve got to come in ready to go, your body has to be in shape and you’re ready to go out of the chute right away. I think it’s a great opportunity to showcase what you worked on in the offseason physically, mentally and pitching wise. I think you always have a sense of what you did last year and what your expectations are for the upcoming season. So you can’t really worry about [what level you’ll be at] because that’s something you can’t control. It’s one of those things that if you get caught up trying to figure out [where you’re going to land], you lose focus on that next pitch, that next outing. There’s really not enough time in baseball to focus on something you can’t control.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re coming in in the fourth inning, the fifth inning or the ninth inning – it really comes down to you executing and throwing strikes. It doesn’t matter what you’re doing – you want to put up a zero for your team. You want to get three outs and you want to get back in the dugout and give your hitters an opportunity. It doesn’t matter what role [you’re in], when you come in. You go out, compete, get outs and that’s the name of the game.

You can still find pressure, even in a game that’s a little bit out of reach. If you come in in the sixth [inning], you never know when your team is going to need you to hold a lead or if that one run that you give up ends up being the deciding factor in the game. So whether it’s the sixth or the ninth, it’s still very important that you throw up zeroes and get your team in there to hit. The pressure is what you make it. You still have a job to do whether it’s the sixth and you’re down 10 or it’s the ninth and you’re up one. You never know when the team’s going to be able to come back and you never know what that run you give up is going to decide it.

I met a woman at the gym who talked to me about modeling and I kind of laughed it off because how often are you told that you should be a model? I had a good laugh with it and didn’t really revisit it and then she sent me a link [to audition] for a hockey body double for Chicago Fire. Even then, it was still almost like a joke. I didn’t have any professional headshots and so I ended up using a photo my younger brother took in the hallway of our house. It kind of started with a hope and a prayer and, sure enough, I ended up getting the job. You never know [where it can lead]. I’m just going with the opportunity. I got to read with first-line actors and be part of it. So I’ll take it step by step. It’s kind of one of those things that fell into my lap and so I figure I might as well run with it. • I’m Just Saying is a regular Sunday feature. If there’s someone you’d like to see featured, write to me at or send me a message on Twitter at @NWH_JeffArnold.

Crystal Lake South graduate Ian Gardeck reports to spring training this week, but not until after being hired to appear in an upcoming episode of the TV drama “Chicago Fire.”

8SPORTS SHORTS Cubs agree to 1-year deal with Samardzija

on a long-term contract.

CHICAGO – The Cubs and starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija have agreed to a one-year, $5,345,000 contract, avoiding arbitration. The deal announced Saturday leaves the Cubs with no remaining players in arbitration. Samardzija asked for $6.2 million and was offered $2,765,000 after going 8-13 with a 4.34 ERA last year, when he made $2,765,000. The 29-year-old right-hander could be a candidate to be traded after he and the team were unable to come to terms

OSU star Smart shoves fan in loss to Texas Tech LUBBOCK, Texas – Oklahoma State star Marcus Smart shoved a fan underneath the basket in the waning seconds of Texas Tech’s 65-61 win over the 19th-ranked Cowboys on Saturday night. Smart tried to block Jaye Crockett’s dunk attempt from behind with 6.2 seconds to go and tumbled into the front row of the crowd. He was helped to his feet by one man but then got in the face of another fan in a black shirt. The man appeared to say

something to Smart, who then shoved him with two hands. The fan stumbled backward a bit but didn’t fall. Teammates quickly pulled an angry Smart away from the fracas, and he pointed back in the direction of the fan. Smart was called for a technical foul but was not ejected.

Jimmy Walker seizes control at Pebble Beach PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – Jimmy

Walker had a hot hand in the cold wind Saturday and built a six-shot lead in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Walker made his first bogey of the tournament, and that hardly slowed him. He countered with five birdies in 30 mph gusts at Monterey Peninsula for a 4-under-par 67.

D-C, Huntley each advance 6 to sectional Both boast pair of champions By ANTHONY ZILIS DeKALB – Dundee-Crown sophomore Christian Brunner said he couldn’t wrestle in last year’s regional final because he couldn’t make weight healthily, evidence of a massive growth spurt that has taken him from the 132-pound weight class to 182 this season. In reality, his coach said, Brunner didn’t want to take a spot from

one of his older teammates as he moved up a weight class. “That’s the kind of kid he is, he’s a team kid,” coach Bob Skillman said. “I think he would’ve been a sectional qualifier last year.” At Saturday’s Class 3A DeKalb Regional, Brunner wrestled, and he dominated. About 5 inches taller and 50 pounds heavier than he was most of last season, Brunner won by fall, technical fall and by a 5-0 decision in three matches to win the championship at 182 pounds. Even after breaking his leg in the offseason and moving up six weight classes, Brunner had no doubt he had this type of potential. “I thought I could be a state qual-

ifier, place in state hopefully,” Brunner said. “I’m planning on being in the finals in sectionals, hopefully winning it.” Brunner and fellow champion Jeremy Marshall, who won at 285 pounds, led D-C to a third-place finish, ahead of fourth-place Huntley and sixth-place Jacobs. Six Chargers finished in the top three to qualify for the Feb. 15 Barrington Sectional, including second-place finishers Armando Gutierrez, Tim Schanmier and Jarrod Raap and third-place finisher Christian Johnson. “The kids wrestled well – they wrestled right up to their seeds,” Skillman said. “We’re hoping to get a couple of guys down [to state]. We

have six guys going, and if we can get three down, that would be awesome.” Huntley also qualified six wrestlers, including 126-pound champion Ricky Vigil and 138-pound champion Brandon Meyer. Second-place finishers Josh Stenger and Nick Meyer advanced at 106 and 113 pounds, along with Matt Kitsis and Mike Walker, who finished third at 145 and 195 pounds. Vigil will have a second chance to succeed in sectionals after being forced to leave early with a concussion during his first match last year. “I’m pretty motivated after last year,” Vigil said. “I worked harder this year. I knew what I had to do.


Last year, I didn’t come in with the right mentality. This year, I got the No. 1 seed and I knew I could take the bracket.” Jacobs will send four wrestlers to the Barrington Sectional – 120-pounder Cody Ferencz and 220-pounder Mark Mamola, who finished second, along with 126-pounder Chris Danka and 132-pounder Jacob Sabella. “We kind of had a rough start in the beginning and a couple of guys wrestled back very nice,” Jacobs coach Gary Conrad said. “In the finals we didn’t get what we wanted, but that’s the kind of competition we’re going to have to see in sectionals, so we’re going to have to be ready.”


CLC, Hampshire cheer teams take 5th, 9th at state

Rams stay undefeated in FVC Fox


By JOE STEVENSON GRAYSLAKE – Hampshire was primed to break its trend in tight Fox Valley Conference Fox Division boys basketball games. Grayslake Central was not. Hampshire led most of the second half, including three five-point margins in the fourth quarter, but the Rams, kings of pulling out close victories, did it again. Hampshire was unable to get a quality shot despite holding the ball for the last 39 seconds of regulation. Once in overtime, Grayslake Central took control for a 66-57 victory Saturday night that leaves the Rams firmly in control of the division race. “We just kind of lost our heads in the fourth quarter,” said Whip-Purs forward Matt Bridges, who scored 15 points and grabbed a game-high 13 rebounds. “We played a great game, everyone worked their butts off. It’s a rough loss. That one hurts, especially a [division] game that we needed.” Hampshire (9-12 overall, 5-3 FVC Fox) trails Grayslake Central (12-7, 8-0) by three games. The Rams are two games up in the loss column to Woodstock, which is 3-2 in division games with several yet to make up from weather postponements. “They’re 8-0. There’s no way we can catch them,” Hampshire coach Bob Barnett said. “It would take a lot of luck and we’d have to win out, which is no easy task, either. We had our chances and it got away. All three of those [division] losses we’ve had the lead in the fourth quarter. We didn’t make the plays when we needed to.” Hampshire led 51-50 after Ryan Cork made two free throws with 57 seconds to go in regulation. The Rams’ Joey Mudd hit a free throw to tie the score with 39 seconds remaining. Grayslake Central’s defense rushed Hampshire on the other end and Barnett called timeout with 16 seconds to go. He called another timeout when a loose ball was knocked out of bounds, to Hampshire, with 4.1 seconds left. The plan was to run Cork, who led all players with 23 points, off a set of screens to get him a one-on-one opportunity. Junior guard Drew Doran took the pass and shot a 3-pointer with two seconds to go. “It’s not Drew’s fault. It’s just not understanding what we’re trying to get done,” Barnett said. “They were going to switch on Ryan and he could have had his man one-on-one.” Grayslake Central took full advantage of that reprieve. Mudd scored five of his 12 points in overtime and the Rams never trailed. Grayslake Central defeated Hampshire, 49-47, on Jan. 4 on a shot in the final seconds. The Rams also beat Woodstock, 50-47, on a last-second 3-pointer. “It’s relying on our other teammates,” Mudd said. “We have really good team chemistry this year. You start with yourself and rely on the other players to do their jobs.”

Kyle Grillot –

Prairie Ridge’s Charley Popp (front) wrestles Deerfield’s Jack Powen during a 160-pound semifinal match Saturday at the Class 3A McHenry Regional. Popp won the match to advance to the championship round. He finished second.

C-G’s Cullen ekes out title at 120 • McHENRY Continued from page C1 Also winning for the Gators was Nick Gil at 138 pounds and Brian Pence at 195. Prairie Ridge’s Travis Piotrowski won at 113. One of the most anticipated final matches was at 120 between C-G’s Michael Cullen and Deerfield’s Andrew Mehrholz. Cullen recently bumped up to 120 and is ranked No. 4 at 113 by Mehrholz is No. 8 at 120. The match lived up to the hype. Tied after three periods, overtime and two tiebreakers, Cullen rode out Mehrholz in the ultimate tiebreaker to win, 4-3. Cullen said not having to cut weight has given him

more energy and strength, particularly in long matches. “I had a lot more gas in the tank,” Cullen said. “I usually find myself in overtime gassed.” Trojans coach Ryan Ludwig said it’s a physical and psychological boost for Cullen. [Cullen] feels good about being there (at 120),” Ludwig said. “A big part of the sport is mental.” Also winning for the Trojans was Logan Hanselmann at 126 and Michael Gomez, who won by pin at 285. McHenry’s Ryan Grannemann defeated Deerfield’s Christo Moran, 4-1, in the 182 third-place match to qualify for sectionals for the first time. Grannemann said

his back was hurting late in the third period and he was in survival mode. “I was just trying to get that 30 seconds over with,” Grannemann said. “I was happy I made it.” Coming off recent injuries to win titles for McHenry were Cam Pait at 160 and Luis Hernandez at 220. Pait said he is feeling the effects of being off but is happy to be back wrestling. “I feel like I need to be more conditioned,” Pait said. “It felt amazing to be back on the mat.” Casey Callahan at 152 was one of three South wrestlers to win third-place matches and advance to sectionals. “It’s relieving to get on to the next week and keep the season alive,” Callahan said.


Gators strong in home finale By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO CRYSTAL LAKE – Five days removed from a disappointing loss to DundeeCrown, the Crystal Lake South girls basketball team knew it needed to be building momentum for the looming postseason. With Friday’s game against Cary-Grove being the final home game for the Gators’ three seniors, South wanted to start strong. The Gators’ effort produced one of their more complete games of the season, as they led the entire game en route

to a 52-40 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division victory. Senior guard Rachel Rasmussen, who led South with 14 points, said her team really wanted to win on senior night. “It was definitely senior night. I think that’s what really pushed us, especially in the first quarter,” Rasmussen said. “We kept that going.” The Gators (15-11 overall, 7-4 FVC Valley) built a 30-16 halftime lead, thanks to the inside-outside combination of senior forward Sara Mickow scoring seven of her 13 points in the first half, while

sophomore guard Chanel Fanter and Rasmussen combined for 14 points. South’s 2-3 zone defense didn’t give the Trojans (15-11, 6-6) too many open looks, and some untimely turnovers didn’t help C-G’s offense. Fanter finished with 12 points. “I would love to say we’re peaking, but I don’t know if we’ve come close to hitting our ceiling yet,” South coach Kyle McCaughn said. “I love the attitude and edge they came with tonight and the intensity. If we can keep doing that, we’ll be just fine.” Katie Barker scored 24 of the Trojans’ 40 points.


Blue Streaks fall short down stretch By JOE STEVENSON GRAYSLAKE – Woodstock knew what the problem was most of Saturday afternoon against Grayslake North: a lack of energy. The Blue Streaks too often were a step behind. There were some moments of inspired play as Woodstock pulled within a point in the final minute, but the Streaks could not score in the final 2:25. North, behind 9 of 10 freethrow shooting, sealed the outcome at the line for a 4943 Fox Valley Conference Fox Division boys basketball win. “I thought we played bad-

ly,” Woodstock coach Alex Baker said. “We just didn’t have the energy through the whole game. It seemed like they got every 50/50 ball that was out there. It sure felt that way.” The Streaks (8-11 overall, 3-2 FVC Fox) trailed the entire game, except for two ties late in the second quarter and early in the third, but had a shot for the lead in the final minute. Damian Stoneking, Woodstock’s 6-foot-7 center, blocked a shot by the Knights’ Nate Dodge, then leaped over the out-of-bounds line and saved the ball to guard Alex Ferguson. Baker wanted to take only a layup and other-

wise play for the final shot, but the Streaks turned the ball over. “Coach Baker prepared us very well for what we were going to see, we just didn’t come out with any energy,” Ferguson said. “We made a good run at the end, we just didn’t execute again.” Stoneking and forward Mason Sutter led Woodstock with 12 points each. The loss dropped Woodstock two games behind division-leading Grayslake Central in the loss column. North improved to 7-13, 5-3. “We executed some things well, but I don’t think we ever got into the game like we could have,” Sutter said.

The Crystal Lake Central competitive cheerleading team finished in fifth place in the Medium Team division on the final day of the IHSA state final at U.S. Cellular Coliseum in Bloomington. The Tigers scored 87.30 for their best state finish, which was slightly down from their 87.96 that had them in second place after Friday’s preliminary round. Lemont (90.84) won the Medium Team title. “We’re just excited. Being top five in the state is way more than we expected coming into this,” Central coach Elizabeth Brauneis said. “This was a huge accomplishment for the girls and so well-deserved.” Both Central and Hampshire, which finished in a tie for ninth with 85.58, advanced to the second day of the state final for the first time in either school’s cheer history. The Whip-Purs tied for ninth on both days of competition with Tinley Park. “I think everyone’s feeling really good. It was unbelievable,” Hampshire coach Rachael Kent said. “They did very well and really came together as a team to perform to the best of their abilities.”

WRESTLING Class 1A Alden-Hebron Regional: At Hebron, the Giants finished seventh with 28 points. Alden-Hebron had two individuals advance to the Feb.15 Byron Sectional.

CLC coach finds way to inspire Zelasco • HAMPSHIRE Continued from page C1 The loss of Hines had a negative effect on the rest of Central’s wrestlers, who figured they had to make up lost points and maybe tried to be too aggressive at times. But there were some bright spots. When Central 182-pounder Mike Zelasco came in second at last week’s Fox Valley Conference meet, he threw his second-place medal in the trash. Zelasco, Mike a senior and Zelasco three-time state qualifier, has never won a conference title, and not capturing the elusive title his senior year resulted in the medal finding a new home among paper plates and empty soda cans, but not for long. Johnsburg coach Jon Murphy saw what happened and quickly scooped up the medal and handed it to Tigers coach Justen Lehr. “Murphy said, ‘Maybe you want this,’ ” Lehr recalled. “I walked over to Mike and told him that I was going to wear the medal during his big matches for motivation.” Sure enough, when Zelasco took the mat against Hampshire’s Anton Krocko in the 182-pound championship match, Lehr was wearing the medal while in Zelasco’s corner. Zelasco used that as motivation to pin his way to a regional championship and refocus his energy from frustration to determination toward his goal of placing at state. “I was really upset and didn’t want to see that medal anymore,” Zelasco said. “And when coach was wearing it, I knew he wanted to motivate me and bring me to a different level. “I worked on the cradle move and used a leg-step we’ve been working on and pinned him.” Although the Tigers were disappointed in not winning the team title, they still advanced seven wrestlers to the Antioch Sectional. Johnsburg also advanced seven wrestlers, including 132-pound winner Branden Peschek. Richmond-Burton advanced four, Hampshire pushed along six, Marian Central had three wrestlers qualify, and Woodstock and Woodstock North each advanced three. Randy Kline, a Woodstock North sophomore, earned the right to advance to his first sectional by winning his thirdplace match at 170 pounds. He defeated Harvard’s Jose Mejia by a 7-2 decision after losing to Mejia earlier in the day in triple overtime. “It feels really, really good,” Kline said through a smile. “I realized I wasn’t aggressive enough the first time, and the second time around I took more shots and tried to dictate the match. I’m just really excited.”

the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame. “They enjoy the arts. They enjoy sports. I think it’s great.” Oh, sure, encourage them. Duchaj and Bloomberg said they enjoyed their dual roles on the team and in the band. During band appearances, they said, they knew they were providing a lift to the girls team by helping to create a lively atmosphere. When they were on the court, they said, they received the same boost from the band. “They get the place jumping,” Bar-

Baby.” And when the band played Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline,” more than

a few students and parents could be heard singing along in the bleachers. The band has a big playlist, so of course it could not get to every song.

10 Hawks headed to Sochi Games There’s no stopping By MARK POTASH Chicago Sun-Times GLENDALE, Ariz. – The Blackhawks have 10 players heading to Sochi for the Olympic Games – tied with the Blues for the most from any team in the NHL. But leave it to Jonathan Toews to argue that’s not a disadvantage to have so many players participating while so many others are resting for the next three weeks. ‘‘I think we have the maturity to use this to our advantage,’’ Toews said after the Blackhawks concluded their six-game (3-1-2) road trip with a 2-0 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes on Friday night at Arena. ‘‘Obviously guys are going to take advantage and do some things and take some time off that they wouldn’t do during the season. I think that’s good mentally. ‘‘Physically I think there’s a way you can take advantage of it, where you come back in even better shape just ready to play your best hockey down the stretch. I think we’ll be excited to come back when we’re back together as a team, whether you’re playing or not, we’ll take advantage of it. ‘‘For myself it was an advantage the last time around [in the 2010 Games in Vancou-

ver]. I’ll see it the same way this time.’’ Toews, of course, never has met a challenge he couldn’t turn into a positive. But coach Joel Quenneville will be keeping a close eye on how his Olympians stand when they return from Sochi. The Hawks faced a similar challenge in 2010 when they had six Olympians. For what it’s worth, they were 41-15-5 going into the break, but 5-7-2 in the month after it. And the five Olympians still with the team – Toews, Patrick Kane, Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook and Marian Hossa – scored 44 points in those 14 games but were a combined minus-22 after being plus-100 at the break. ‘‘It’s tough to measure whether it’s an advantage or a disadvantage [to have so many Olympic participants],’’ Quenneville said.

‘‘We’re happy for the guys. it’s a great accomplishment. We’ll be rootin’ for them. ‘‘The concern is how they’re going to feel when they get back to the team, so we’ll keep an eye on that going through this stretch here.’’ But at least the Olympians will be playing hockey for most of the next three weeks. On the flip side, the players who will get an opportunity to rest have a challenge as well – to stay sharp and in competitive shape mentally more than physically. ‘‘They should be refreshing,’’ Quenneville said. ‘‘They should be excited bout the return, We look for those guys to come out of the break and lead the charge – because those guys [in Sochi], it’ll be busy for them and they don’t get the rest. And it’ll be a great run going to the end of

the year.’’ Players such as defenseman Brent Seabrook and goaltender Corey Crawford were disappointed to not make the Canadian Olympic team. Now it’s time to concentrate on the benefit of that disappointment. They don’t have a game untilFeb. 27 against the Rangers at Madison Square Garden. ‘‘We’re going to just try and get some rest and be ready for when we start up again,’’ Crawford said. The core of this team has won two Stanley Cup titles in the past four seasons. Quenneville is counting on the experience of his team to carry it through the break. With 84 points, the Blackhawks are second in the Western Conference behind the Anaheim Ducks. But the Blues also have 84 points, but the Blues have three games in hand. ‘‘We trust the guys ... I’m sure these guys are pros,’’ Quenneville said. ‘‘They want to make sure that they’re looking after themselves, because it’s not an on-and-ff switch that you can just anticipate that you’re going to be flying coming out of it [after] doing nothing. I would expect them all to be doing the right things to keep themselves ready.’’


No luck for Northwestern in loss to Nebraska By SETH GRUEN Playing a grind-it-out style isn’t a choice for Northwestern. The Wildcats slow the game down, limit possessions and play suffocating defense by necessity. But even though that’s a prudent strategy for a team with underwhelming talent, that style still comes with consequences. Playing close games like it does, NU needs to have some

luck on its side to win. And the Wildcats didn’t have it in their 53-49 loss Saturday to Nebraska at Welsh-Ryan Arena. Sure, there are elements of the game NU (12-12, 5-6 Big Ten) hasn’t mastered – and won’t this season. Given that, though, the Wildcats can’t have things they’re unable to control go against them. For example, with NU trailing 42-36 with 6:07 left, JerShon Cobb (14 points) had a layup blocked after the ball

hit the backboard. Goaltending should have been called. Instead, Benny Parker went on to score four seconds later to extend the Cornhuskers’ lead to eight. ‘‘You’re in a competitive battle that’s a 40-point game, so two points is big, especially when they run down and score on the other end,’’ Wildcats coach Chris Collins said. ‘‘[The officials] called a good game. There are going to be missed calls; it happens all the time. I thought, for the


No. 17 Iowa beats No. 10 Michigan The ASSOCIATED PRESS IOWA CITY, Iowa – Roy Devyn Marble scored 22 of his 26 points in the first half for Iowa. Aaron White added 11 points and eight rebounds for the Hawkeyes (18-6, 7-4 Big Ten), who have beaten two AP Top 10 teams in the regular season for the first time since 1990-91, avoided a third straight loss at home and split the season series with Michigan in a 85-67 win. Caris LeVert scored 22 points for the Wolverines (176, 9-2), who have lost two of three after starting 8-0 in the Big Ten.

North Carolina 73, Notre Dame 62: At South Bend, Ind., James Michael McAdoo scored 18 points, Marcus Paige added 16 and North Carolina (16-7, 6-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) dominated inside after a slow start to defeat Notre Dame (12-12, 3-8) for the fifth straight victory for the Tar Heels.

Omaha 71, Western Illinois 60: At Omaha, Neb., Justin Simmons and John Karhoff scored 19 points each and Omaha (15-9, 4-4 Summit League) defeated Western Illinois (9-14, 3-5). Mike Rostampour and CJ Carter added 10 points each for the Mavericks (15-9, 4-4 Summit League), who won their third consecutive game.

SE Missouri St. 74, Eastern Illinois: At Charleston, Jarekious Bradley, who scored 13 points and had 10 rebounds, made three free throws in the final 24 seconds to secure a victory for Southeast Missouri State (13-12, 4-7 Ohio Valley Conference) over Eastern Illinois (9-15, 6-6).

Ohio St. 67, Purdue 49: At Columbus, Ohio, Lenzelle Smith Jr., starting his 100th game, hit 4 of 7 3-pointers and scored 16 points to lead Ohio State past Purdue 67-49 on Saturday night, the Buckeyes’ third win in a row after losing five of six. LaQuinton Ross led the way with 17 points for Ohio State (19-5, 6-5 Big Ten). R e s e r v e s K e n d a l l S t ephens and Rapheal Davis had 12 and 11 points with A.J. Hammons adding 11 for the Boilermakers (14-10, 4-7), who have lost five of six overall and their last four on the road.

most part, it was a consistently called game.’’ But it seemed as though the calls – or at least the timeliness of them – didn’t go NU’s way. The Wildcats were whistled for only five fouls in the first half, with forward Sanjay Lumpkin guilty of only one. But a little more than seven minutes into the second half, Lumpkin – one of NU’s best defenders – found himself saddled with four fouls, forcing Collins to sit him.

Bulls’ Taj Gibson By MARK POTASH Chicago Sun-Times LOS ANGELES – There’s no stopping Taj Gibson, now. At least he feels unstoppable. ‘‘A great player like Ed Pinckney [a Bulls’ assistant] once told me, ‘When you’re in a zone sometimes, you don’t even think about who’s guarding you. You just go,’’’ Gibson said prior to the Bulls’ practice at UCLA on Saturday. ‘‘That’s the way I’m feeling right now. I really don’t care or think about who’s guarding me. I just go. I’m playing with a good amount of confidence. A perfect fit for Tom Thibodeau’s system from the start, the 6-9 225-pound Gibson has become the defensive/effort guy the Bulls expected Taj Gibson when they drafted him 26th overall in 2009. But since Luol Deng was traded, Gibson’s offense is emerging minute-by-minute as his playing time – and the Bulls’ need for offense – increases. Since a 26-point effort against Deng and the Cavaliers on Jan. 22, Gibson is averaging 16 points and shooting 48.7 percent over his last nine games. He equalled that career-best mark with 26 points against the Golden State Warriors on Thursday. It’s not unsual for Gibson to speak confidently about his defensive role. But as the Bulls prepared to face the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday (2:30 p.m., Ch. 7), Gibson was as effusive about his offense as he’s ever been. His confidence couldn’t be higher. ‘‘Every I score I’m smiling, because I can’t believe all the things I’m doing,’’ Gibson said. ‘‘I’ve been learning a lot. I never really thought about the NBA schemes of how they play you, how they double-team you. But Thibs and the coaching staff keep me on edge. I’m just having fun. This year I’m really having a lot of fun, just trying to find ways to score – and it’s great.’’

Gibson’s overall numbers still are modest – he’s averaging 12.4 points, 6.6 rebounds and shooting 48.1 percent from the field. But his progress is significant enough to warrant consideration for postseason honors – the Sixth Man Award, Most Improved Player, and all-defensive team. ‘‘All of the above,’’ Thibodeau said. ‘‘I think he has made that case by the way he’s performed. He’s invaluable to us. And just the way he works – he’s by far our best practice player. He worked extremely hard this summer. We have a lot of confidence in him. And I still think there’s room for growth.’’ Those awards are of course subjective, but Thibodeau’s endorsement of Gibson for the all-defensive team should carry some weight. ‘‘In my eyes he is [deserving],’’ Thibodeau said. ‘‘There’s not one aspect of his defense [that is flawed], if you look at low-post, pick-and-roll, the ability to switch, the blocked shots, the anticipation, multiple effort. He’s got great, feet. So I don’t see why not.’’ It remains to be seen if Gibson can reach an all-star level, but he’s aware he can add even more to his already well-rounded game. ‘‘I remember Derrick [Rose] said, ‘Some people just don’t know how good they are,’’’ Gibson said. ‘‘Joakim’s been on me from Day 1. He said, ‘You can handle the ball.’ But sometimes you kind of shy away because you don’t want Thibs to yell at you. You don’t want to mess up. ‘‘But I work on all those things daily. I”m in the gym from the top of the morning until late at night. You just want to do the right thing to help the team. That’s the kind of person I am.’’ NOTES: Carlos Boozer, who missed the Warriors game with a calf injury, was ‘‘very limited’’ in practice Saturday and is ‘‘day-today,’’ Tom Thibodeau said. Reserve forward Toko Shengelia has left the team because of a death in the family and will not be available against the Lakers.

Chicago State (10-12, 5-3 Western Athletic Conference) took the lead midway through the first half on a Matt Ross dunk that made it 10-9 and never trailed again, though the Cougars had to quell a second-half UMKC rally to cement the win.

1st gold medalist prepped for Games with ‘mad snacks’ By MIKE WISE The Washington Post

Fast 5 SOCHI, Russia – Fast five, Saturday edition: Things you’ll want to know about the 2014 Winter Olympics. LET THE GAMES BEGIN: And they do. The first five gold medals of the Sochi Games were up for grabs Saturday, including: men’s 10-kilometer biathlon sprint, women’s 7.5-kilometer + 7.5 kilometer skiathlon, women’s freestyle ski moguls, men’s snowboard slopestyle and men’s 5000-meter speedskating. THAT MISSING RING: “I don’t see what the problem is, to be honest,” International Olympic Committee spokesman Mark Adams said of questions about Russian state television’s use of rehearsal footage to mask the fact that one of five Olympic rings didn’t light up during Sochi’s opening ceremony. While the 40,000 spectators in the stadium saw the glitch, Russian state television cut away to air the recorded images showing all five rings joining together and fireworks exploding. HIJACK RATIONALE: More information is emerging on the 45-year-old Ukrainian man who authorities say tried to hijack a Turkey-bound commercial flight and divert it to Sochi on the day of the Winter Olympics’ opening ceremony. They said he wanted to press for the release of anti-government protesters in his country. Turkey’s transport minister suggested the man probably acted alone. INTERESTING CHOICE: The IOC is also defending Russia’s choosing of figure skating icon Irina Rodnina as one of the torchbearers for the Sochi opening ceremony. Rodnina, a three-time gold medalist, drew criticism in September for tweeting a photo of U.S. President Barack Obama that some felt was racist. Sochi Organizing Committee President Dmitry Chernyshenko said the Olympics is about sports, not politics. BREAK DOWN THE DOOR: Locked in a bathroom in the athletes’ village, U.S. bobsledder Johnny Quinn found a novel way out: crashing through the door. The former NFL player with Green Bay and Buffalo posted a photo of a gaping hole in the former door. A U.S. team spokeswoman couldn’t say whether Quinn will have to pay for it. – The Associated Press

SOCHI, Russia – Nutrition being so crucial to world-class athletic performance, Sage Kotsenburg tweeted a photo of his pre-event meal Friday night, arranging five of them just so, alongside the title of his work of art: “#OlympicOnionRings.” “I was eating mad snacks,” the first gold medalist of these Winter Olympics said underneath a dish mop of scraggly blond split ends. “Chocolate. Onion rings. Chips. We were chilling really hard. Then we fell asleep watching ‘Fight Club.’ Getting stoked, you know?” Dude, totally. It was past 6 p.m. Saturday in a large conference room here when a free radical from Park City, Utah, named Sage, who has a brother named Blaze, and who says “stoked” like, a lot – usually between “mega,” “awesome,” “gnarly,” and “whoa!” – perfectly reprised the role of America’s favorite slacker turned counterculture hero. “Good old Spicoli,” Kotsenburg said, pumped by the Internet comparisons between himself and the

surfer-stoner dude originally played by Sean Penn in “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” – and, OK, once played by Shaun White before he went corporate, became part of the establishment and pulled out of the competition Kotsenburg is a more believable Spicoli anyway. When his parents wanted to come to Sochi to watch, he told them they stress him out too much. “I was kind of like, ‘Hey, if you Sage guys could Kotsenburg just kind of hang out at home.’ ” He had won nothing since he was 11 years old before qualifying for the Olympics, a duration of losing he called “a mega drought.” After qualifying Saturday morning, he tweeted, “Whoa how random is this I made finals at the Olympics!!!” In the time it took to type this, Kotsenburg’s Twitter followers grew by 5,000, his Q-rating spiking the moment he pulled off something called “the Holy Crail” to win the first slopestyle snowboarding competition in the Olympics. Slopestyle is a dialed-down

version of the halfpipe routine White has won twice at the Winter Games. Think of the advanced kids on the obstacle course at the ski park, flying off rails and jumps and generally mocking the children who can’t do the snowplow once they get off the lift. Now think of one of those kids exponentially showing off, spinning 4½ revolutions, arching his back like a limbo contestant as he holds on to the front of his snowboard while landing flawlessly. Voila! The Holy Crail. Three minutes before his final run, Kotsenburg grabbed a phone from the backpack of his wax technician – because, really, what’s a great snowboarder without his own wax technician? – and called Blaze in Park City, 2 a.m. there, to tell his brother his plans. “ ‘Man, I think I’m going to do this trick,’ ” he said. “He was like, ‘You know what, everyone is so stoked, you’ve got this. No pressure.’ ” I could try to dissect what he did, but I would be faking it worse than if I were trying to explain a quadruple toe loop. Better sometimes to let the artist explain his work: “Yeah. So I, uh, dropped in, and I did a cab 270 onto

the first down rail, then followed up with a half-cab on, back-five off, on the second feature, and then a half-cab up, lay backside 180 off the cannon box, then a cab double cork 1260 Holy Crail from 10 off the toe with rocket air, then a back 1620 Japan.” Whoa. “That was the best run of my life, hands down,” Kotsenburg said. “I said to my coach, ‘Hey, Bill, I might do a 1620 Japan. It’s never been done before and I had never tried it before. He was like, ‘You’re in the finals of the Olympics. You might as well go all out.’ “And I just threw it and it ended up coming around just like the 1260, but a full 360 more,” he said. “I could not believe riding out of that that I landed that in the first try.” Dude! After he won, Kotsenburg called his father and, by association, 50 people watching live in his house back home. “He was like, ‘WHAAAAAT!’ And then I was on speakerphone, and hearing their voices was just the coolest thing ever. . . . It could be a dangerous night in Park City.”

Women ski jumpers finally flying high By MARK LAZERUS SOCHI, Russia – Jessica Jerome was torn. Every year, she saw more and more extreme sports become mainstream – aerials, freestyle, halfpipe, and snowboard cross, to name a few – only to see her own sport so brusquely cast aside as unwelcome, unnecessary, unworthy. Jerome was happy for her fellow athletes who got a chance to compete in the Olympics. But at the same time, as a ski jumper, she was angry. After all, what’s more extreme than hurtling down a 300-foot hill at about 60 mph, then soaring more than the length of a football field in the air on a pair of skis? “But it’s a good thing,” Jerome quickly added. “I sort of see our fight getting our foot in the door for all the other sports. The athletes in these other sports deserve to be here as much as we do. And I’m glad that they didn’t have the struggle we did.” And it has been a long and difficult struggle for women’s ski jumping, which finally makes its debut in Sochi on Tuesday after 90 years of waiting and a decade of fighting in the face of typical bureaucratic inertia, casual sexism and primitive concerns about women’s reproductive health. Jerome, along with fellow Americans Lindsey Van (one of the sport’s modern pioneers) and Sarah Hendrickson (a rising star jumping less than six months after

Once she finally convinced her parents, Peter and Barbara, to let her jump – “My

mom said no, and my dad had a vision of the ‘agony of defeat’ from the Wide World of Sports,” Jerome said – they became her and the sport’s biggest boosters. The story, now familiar in Olympic circles, had Barbara complaining about the lack of opportunities for female jumpers, and pushing Peter out the door. He bought a “Non-profits for Dummies” book, and his little start-up – Women’s Ski Jumping USA – eventually built the world’s top team. It didn’t happen overnight, though. Archaic notions of gender inequality – International Ski Federation president Gian-Franco Kasper infamously said in 2005 that it “seems not to be appropri-

ate for ladies from a medical point of view” – were difficult to overcome. In 2006, women’s ski jumping was voted down by the IOC because of a lack of “universality,” despite having nearly three times as many elite-level competitors as female skier cross, which debuted in Vancouver. Van and Jerome were part of a group of jumpers that sued for inclusion in the 2010 Games, but lost. Finally, in April of 2011, the IOC added women’s ski jumping to the Sochi Games. Sort of. While the men get three events, including the large (120 meters) hill, the women get one, on the normal (90 meters) hill. True gender equality will have to wait until at least 2018 in South Korea. “I’m hoping that this is the first step, and that [equality] will come eventually,” Jerome said. “With any new sport, you’re sort of taking baby steps. I really appreciate that we are here and we have our one event. And I really hope in the future we will have a big hill event and a team event.” So it’s the end of one long chapter in the sport’s history, and the start of a new one, as it leaps forward into the future. “We’ve waited a long time to be here, and I can’t wait to show everybody our sport,” Van said. “It’s one of the oldest sports in the Olympics, and it’s taken 90 years for women to be here. So check us out.”

Russia holds lead in team event By BARRY WILNER The Associated Press SOCHI, Russia – Like old times, Russia is dominating Olympic figure skating. The host nation’s disappointment over not winning a gold medal in Vancouver will fade quickly if its skaters’ performances in the new event of team figure skating carry on throughout the Sochi Games. Fifteen-year-old Julia Lipnitskaia had the look of an Olympic champion on Saturday night, dazzling the home crowd with a near-perfect routine in the women’s short program. Then it was Russia’s backup pair, Ksenia Stolbova and Fedor Klimov, earning cheers as they routed the field in the free skate. With only the men’s and women’s free skate and the free dance left to contest in Sunday’s finale, Russia has 47 points to Canada’s 41 and the United States’ 34. Italy has 31 and Japan has 30. With her countrymen chanting her first name, Lipnitskaia put on a mature presentation that had fans stomping their feet and showering the ice with flowers and dolls. Her flexibility and rapid rotation on her spins and jumps were reminiscent of Tara Lipinski when she won the 1998 Olympic gold.

Julia Lipnitskaya, of Russia competes in the women’s team short program figure skating competition Saturday at the Iceberg Skating Palace during the Winter Olympics, in Sochi, Russia. And Lipinski, who was the same age at those games in Nagano, was on hand to see it. “I have been saying the whole year that she is a dark horse,” Lipinski said of Lipnitskaia – yes, the names are nearly the same. “I loved the

energy and the fight in her.” Lipnitskaia easily outskated far more experienced competitors Carolina Kostner of Italy, who is in her third Olympics, and Japan’s Mao Asada, in her second. The moment wasn’t too big for her in

any way. “My trainers told me people would cry,” she said. “They told me they would be clapping to the music. But I didn’t think the spectators would be so loud. But it helped me to perform really

No talk of gay rights, please, we’re Olympians By JOHN LEICESTER



The Associated Press SOCHI, Russia – Olympic competition first, gay rights maybe later. Plenty of athletes made clear before traveling to Sochi how unhappy they were about gay rights being curtailed in Russia, particularly with its law banning gay “propaganda.” But now in Sochi, there has not been a squeak of public protest from the 2,870 Olympians – either at venues or at Friday’s opening ceremony. Outside the Olympic bubble, the plight of Russia’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community continues to dog the games. Gay rights activists who waved rainbow flags on Friday on Moscow’s Red Square and protested in St. Petersburg were quickly arrested. Three sponsors of the U.S. Olympic Committee, led by telecommunications giant AT&T, have spoken explicitly against the Russian law. Google Inc. hinted its opposition by putting winter athletes and rainbow colors on its search-page logo. But in Sochi, largely silence. Olympians and coaches cite multiple reasons why they feel these Olympics are neither the place nor time – at least not early on in the 17-day games – to make a stand. COMPETITION FIRST: Not unreasonably, priority No. 1 is to compete. Everything else is on hold. “We’re all so focused on the task at hand,” said U.S. figure skater Ashley Wagner. In the United States, Wagner spoke eloquently against the Russian law. In Sochi, she still is happily and patiently answering questions on it. She said she has also “discussed it with some athletes.” “We have a great platform to really speak out about what we believe in, but also we’re here to compete,” she said. “I did my part as an athlete, and did enough to make myself feel good at the end of the day.” MAYBE LATER: Once athletes are done competing, gloves could come off, especially if these are their last Olympics. That, at least, is the theory of LGBT activist Hudson Taylor, a wrestling coach at Columbia University who has traveled to Sochi to campaign. Taylor said he knows of “a handful of athletes who are interested in speaking out.”

well.” Just like her comrades. In the new event, Russia has finished no lower than third in any of its four disciplines. The nation that for decades held a stronghold on figure skating medals as the

Soviet Union and then as Russia – 51 in all – appears ready to hog the podium again after winning just two in Vancouver. There was nothing ghastly about the performance of Stolbova and Klimov to music from “The Addams Family.” Stepping in for world champs Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov, who won the short program, Stolbova and Klimov had the audience in the Iceberg at Sochi’s Olympic Park on its feet well before they finished their routine. “We feel a great amount of responsibility for our country and, of course, (had) the fans on our side,” Klimov said through a translator. “We did believe we have to be ready for that and do our best.” It was a good night for the Americans, too. The team was seventh heading into Saturday, but thanks in great part to world champion ice dancers Meryl Davis and Charlie White, it got back into contention for a medal. The 2010 ice dancing silver medalists quickstepped to the rescue by winning the short dance. “We don’t feel like we’re trying to carry any sort of burden or load,” White said. “We’re counting on the whole team to pull through together and I think that’s what makes us such a strong team.”

FAMILY AFFAIR The Dufour-Lapointe family swept the top two spots in the women’s moguls. Youngest sister Justine won gold and middle sister Chloe got the silver. Oldest sister Maxime also made it into the finals, where she finished 12th. The Canadians aren’t the first sisters to finish 1-2 at the Winter Olympics. Christine and Marielle Goitschel of France did it twice in Alpine skiing at the 1964 Innsbruck Games, and Doris and Angelika Neuner of Austria did it in luge at the 1992 Albertville Olympics.

Dave Lara, of Los Angeles, joins demonstrators from a coalition of gay rights organizations, religious and political groups protest the treatment of gays in Russia Friday outside the final stop of the “Road to Sochi,” a traveling exhibit hosted by the U.S. Olympic Committee, at LALive in downtown Los Angeles. “I could see people feeling a little bit more comfortable, after they have gotten their main job out of the way, to speak their mind,” said Wagner. NOT THE PLACE: The mantra of the International Olympic Committee and many Olympians is that the games must be kept free of the political, religious and other schisms that divide the outside world. That philosophy discourages open discussion at the Olympics of any contentions non-sport issue, not just the anti-gay chill in Russia. “I don’t really feel like the Olympics is a place for that kind of politics,” said U.S. skier Bode Miller, competing at his fifth games. “It’s a place for sports and a place for cultures to kind of put aside their differences and compete.” “It’s easy to get caught up in all the other stuff and forget what the Olympics is about.” BEHIND THE SCENES: Some athletes say they are talking, but among themselves. “We’ve been discussing this a lot, and it really just brings us athletes closer together. We all agree that there should be no discrimination,” said U.S. cross-country skier Kikkan Randall. But esteemed figure skating coach Frank Carroll said: “I haven’t heard one single word about it. Not one. I don’t see any flags or banners.” KEEP QUIET: Some countries say they just don’t want their athletes involved. Canada is

one of those. “We don’t participate in any political debates and any controversy and anything else but sport,” said Canadian Olympic Committee President Marcel Aubut. Canadian Olympians get “a lot of training” on how to answer reporters and are made “aware of any trigger points,” said Mike Slipchuk, who heads Canada’s figure skating team. “They’re here to answer questions about their performance and what they’re doing here,” he said. But on gay rights, “wars” and “everything,” he said: “We’re not here to be a spokesperson for those things.” Canadian skater Kevin Reynolds certainly got the message. “I’m focused on doing my job and, for the time being, doing what I need to do,” he said somewhat robotically when asked for his opinion. With a curt “thanks,” a Canadian press handler tried to cut off a follow-up question before allowing Reynolds to reply. “I think the athletes will be a little bit more free to talk about that after they have done competing,” the skater said. AFRAID OF TROUBLE: IOC rules governing what athletes can and cannot say aren’t as clear as they could be. Laid out in the Olympic Charter, they say all demonstrations and propaganda are banned at Olympic sites, venues and “other areas.”

The charter says violators can be expelled, but that has “seldom if ever” happened, the IOC says. U.S.sprintersTommieSmithand John Carlos were sent home for their ‘black power’ salute at the 1968 Mexico City Games, when they thrust their black-gloved fists skyward on the medal podium. In Sochi, the IOC and Russian organizers also sent conflicting signals. IOC President Thomas Bach said Olympians are “absolutely free” to speak on gay rights in press conferences. Sochi organizers contradicted Bach but then backpedalled. The result: confusion. “At first we were like kind of afraid to speak about it, like you couldn’t even say the word ‘gay’ at all,” said U.S. speedskater Jilleanne Rookard. Taylor, executive director of Athlete Ally, argues that the IOC’s ban doesn’t extend to social media. He expects athletes in Sochi will be “tweeting or sharing pictures about these issues, too.” MEDIA STORM: Some athletes worry that taking a strong stand will draw swarms of reporters, which could break their focus. “I just don’t want to stir the waters and don’t want to comment on any side of it. Then that’s something that can turn into a distraction if you get hounded by the media,” said cross-country skier Jessica Diggins. “So I’m keeping myself out of that.”

Sage Kotsenburg tamed the treacherous slopestyle course, getting the first gold medal of the Sochi Olympics. The American did it with a run that left the 20-year-old who talks like a surfer and rides like a purist momentarily stunned in disbelief. Staale Sandbech of Norway got silver while Canadian Mark McMorris, who nearly missed the finals because of a broken rib, surged to bronze as slopestyle made its Olympic debut.

DUTCH MASTERS With the king, queen and prime minister of his country cheering him on, Sven Kramer of the Netherlands set an Olympic record and defended his title in the men’s 5,000 meters in speeskating. The 27-year-old Dutchman flew around the big oval and won gold with a time of 6 minutes, 10.76 seconds. He easily beat the Olympic mark of 6:14.60 that he set in Vancouver. The powerful Dutch team swept the medals. Jan Blokhuijsen took the silver and Jorrit Bergsma got the bronze.

TEARS FOR A TEAMMATE Marit Bjoergen of Norway got her fourth career gold medal, winning the 15-kilometer skiathlon, and she dedicated the race to teammate Astrid Uhrenholdt Jacobsen, whose brother died Friday. Bjoergen and her teammates, who also finished third and fourth, broke down in tears as they embraced after the race.

ISN’T HE GOOD ... Norwegian Ole Einar Bjoerndalen became the oldest individual gold medalist at the Winter Olympics. The 40-year-old won the men’s 10-kilometer sprint in biathlon, his seventh career gold. He beat the record held by Canadian skeleton racer Duff Gibson, who was 39 when he won gold at the 2006 Turin Olympics. Earning his 12th medal overall, Bjoerndalen also tied the record of fellow countryman and cross-country skiing great Bjoern Daehlie for most medals won at the Winter Games, and looks in a strong position to overtake Daehlie.

SILENCE ON GAY ISSUES Plenty of athletes made clear before traveling to Sochi how unhappy they were about gay rights being curtailed in Russia, particularly with its law banning gay “propaganda.” But so far, competitors and coaches have largely been silent. Skating coach Brian Orser, who is gay, said: “I have my feelings about it, but I don’t know if this is the time or the place to voice it, although we do have a big audience, and that’s sort of important as well. So I am kind of torn.”

SUNDAY’S HIGHLIGHTS Eight gold medals are at stake, including the new event of team figure skating and the men’s downhill on the difficult and at times dangerous Rosa Khutor course, with Bode Miller of the U.S. and Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway the favorites.

Drink makers giving people ways to ditch the can

FINANCE Mike Piershale

You can’t save what you don’t have Whether you’re retired or working, do you really know where you spend your money? These are increasingly important questions today as more people are helping not only their children, but also their grandchildren. This also may be at the expense of their own retirement. Having a financial plan can help guide your decisions now and in the years to come. Ongoing tracking of your expenses, like stepping on the scale, provides a reality check. The more we consciously focus on our spending, the more likely we will not overspend. Like exercising or dieting, we know it’s good for us, but it can be hard to do consistently. Not all planners agree that tracking expenses in general is enough. Many people who are asked to track all their expenses discover their estimate of money left for saving or investing is frequently off because they exclude unusual expenditures and average the balance. The focus of some financial plans is on having individuals set up automatic billpay and meet specific savings goals through monthly automatic deposits. The budgeting then usually falls in line accordingly. Today, a growing number of largely free online tools are available to help you track your expenses. Companies such as and Yodlee MoneyCenter can import and aggregate data from your credit card, bank, and brokerage accounts. They break down your spending into categories, such as dining and vacation. Some programs can even track specific items, such as how much you spend on coffee. However, these online tools only provide a fraction of the guidance an adviser can give you. So, incorporating both into your overall financial plan may be the most beneficial. Once you know where your money is going, identifying cuts that can make a real difference becomes easier. You may want to consider having a monthly meeting with your spouse. If you are not married, a trusted confidant is an option. This meeting should include reviewing where you have been spending money and anticipated expenditures, both shortand long-term. It could lead to some very interesting conversations. Having both parties involved, discussing goals and objectives, where you are today and where you want to be in the future, can be helpful. One of the most important things you can do is save money. A key to success is the ability to delay gratification. Saving is crucial to developing that ability and imperative for anyone who wants to acquire and grow wealth.

was boarding a cruise liner that would take them through the Caribbean. “Had we booked on Expedia or Travelocity, we would have been in Milwaukee and had two very disappointed children who would have been home in the snow on their spring break and not enjoying the Caribbean,” Massaro said. “To me that speaks volumes about using a travel agent.” It’s that sort of personalized service that has made Cary Travel Express a mainstay in an industry often strained by competition from online travel agencies.

NEW YORK – It keeps getting easier to ditch the soda can. When Coca-Cola said this week it would let people make its drinks at home using a beverage machine, it became the latest company to take advantage of a growing trend: People turning to flavored drops or at-home carbonation machines that do away with the need to haul home bulky cans and bottles from the supermarket. While such alternatives still represent a tiny fraction of the beverage market, they’re growing at a far faster rate than the industry’s traditional ready-to-drink business. “It’s a mega trend we’ve seen,” said Charles Torrey, vice president of marketing for Coca-Cola’s Minute Maid unit, which this week introduced liquid drops that people make juice drinks with on the go. “Consumers want things personalized to their own tastes.” Drinks that come in bottles and cans still will account for the bulk of the beverage industry for years to come, of course. And it’s not clear whether at-home beverage machines will catch on more broadly. Still, companies such as Coke and Pepsi are looking for new ways to grow, with the traditional cans-and-bottles business seeing weak growth of about 1 percent annually. Options that do away with cans and bottles are faring far better. Revenue for the Americas region at SodaStream, which makes at-home carbonation machines, surged 88 percent in 2012 from the previous year, the latest figures available. And Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, which makes single-serve coffee machines and is partnering with Coca-Cola to make a cold beverage machine, saw revenue climb 13 percent. Flavored drops for water also are becoming popular. Kraft in 2011 introduced its MiO flavor drops, which come in small bottles that can be carried around in a purse or pocket. The idea is that people can squirt as much or as little flavor as they want into their water. The company has since added Kool-Aid and Crystal Light drops to its lineup. Others including Coca-Cola and PepsiCo quickly jumped into the space as well. “How consumers buy products is changing these days. A decade ago, few would’ve believed that the

Buying a new car can be a poor investment for some Dear Dave,

– Angela

Dear Angela, In all honesty, there’s nothing particularly special about a million dollars. A brand-new car will lose about 60 percent of its value in the first four years. So, if you’re going to turn a $30,000 investment into $12,000, you’ve got to have a bunch of money. You’ve got to be in pretty great financial shape in order to absorb the blow. If your entire net worth is $100,000, and you put $30,000 of it into a vehicle that will lose 60 percent of its value, you’re just being financially and mathematically stupid. Your income is your largest

ment loans so I could go to college. Would my forbearance or non-payment affect their credit if I don’t pay?

DAVE SAYS Dave Ramsey

I’ve heard you say many times you shouldn’t buy a brand-new car unless you have a net worth of $1 million. What’s so special about a million dollars?

– Tiffany

Dear Tiffany, and most powerful wealth-building tool. If you’re buying things that go the wrong way in terms of value, you’re not gaining wealth; you’re losing wealth. There’s really nothing special about $1 million. I could have said $2 million or $900,000, but $1 million is easy to remember. Plus, it’s nothing to sneeze at in terms of an individual’s net worth. When you lose a lot, and it’s a small percentage of a lot, you don’t have to worry so much. But when you lose a lot and you didn’t have much to begin with, that’s a recipe for financial disaster.

– Dave

Dear Dave, My parents co-signed on govern-

Yes, it would. I’m not trying to lay a guilt trip on you, kiddo, but you’ll be trashing your mom and dad’s credit if you don’t pay the bills on time. If they co-signed for you, they’ll start getting phone calls, too, if you don’t do the right thing and pay back these loans. The truth is, your mom and dad shouldn’t have co-signed for you in the first place. There’s only one reason lenders want a co-signer, and that’s because they’re afraid the person taking out the loan won’t be able to pay back what’s owed. My goal here isn’t to beat you up, Tiffany. It’s to give you information that you – and your parents – need in order to make different, smarter

decisions in the future. We all do dumb things sometimes. In the past, I did some really dumb things with very large numbers attached. The goal is to grow, learn and try to use what we learn in order to do fewer dumb things in the future.

– Dave

Dear Dave, I’m 26, and I just started a new job making $50,000. I’ve also been offered a 401(k) with no match. Should I put money into the 401(k) or open a high-yield CD?

– Crystal

Dear Crystal, I’ve got another idea. I’d open a Roth IRA with good growth stock mutual funds inside and fund it up to $5,500 a year. Make sure these mutual funds have been open at least five years – preferably 10 years or more – and have performed well.

Mathematically, this investment, growing tax-free, will be superior to a non-matching 401(k). Then, if you want to invest more than $5,500, you could put some additional money into the 401(k) offered by your company. Again, make sure you’re invested in good growth stock mutual funds with long, successful track records. Congratulations, Crystal. And good luck.

Two Centegra physicians among top doctors McHENRY – Two Centegra Physician Care physicians were listed as top primary care doctors in McHenry County according to Chicago Magazine’s January 2014 issue, which highlighted the best doctors in the Chicago area. Internists Dr. Bonnie Bremer of Centegra Physician CareFox Valley and Dr. Erin Davis of Centegra Physician CareMcHenry received the honor. The physicians were nominated by their peers for the list, which is developed by Chicago Magazine and Castle Connolly Medical, a health care research company. “We are proud that two of our physicians have been recognized by their peers for the excellent patient care they provide,” Dr. Pasquale Bernardi, vice president of physician services with Centegra Physician Care, said in a statement. “The honor reflects their commitment to high-quality care and their efforts to collaborate with others to create the best patient experience.” To develop the list, Castle Connolly Medical sent surveys to licensed physicians across the United States. The surveys asked doctors to nominate peers who are the best in their fields based on education, board certifications and bedside manner. “We take great pride in our doctors’ expertise and their compassion for patients,” Bernardi said. “Both of these physicians are dedicated to bringing the highest level of care to the people of McHenry County.”

Two Mercy doctors make top doctors list ALGONQUIN – Mercy Health System recently announced two of its physicians were named among Chicago Magazine’s 2014 Top Doctors in an issue published in December.

Dr. Raja Chatterji, of Mercy Women’s Healthcare Centers in Algonquin, Elgin and Hoffman Estates, and Dr. Ricca Zaino, of Mercy Crystal Lake Medical Center-West and Mercy Woodstock Medical Dr. Raja Center, were Chatterji recognized in the field of obstetrics and gynecology. The list is compiled by Castle ConDr. Ricca nolly Medical Zaino in New York City. It makes its annual survey available to all licensed physicians nationwide, asking them to nominate up to three doctors they view as the best in their own specialty and up to three doctors in other specialties. Physicians are instructed to take into account such factors as education, hospital appointment, board certifications and bedside manner. Physicians cannot nominate themselves nor pay to be on the list.

Castle Bank names Stover, Rung to board DEKALB – Dana Stover and John Rung have been named to the Community Board of Directors of Castle Bank, said President Timothy Struthers. Stover most recently served Dana Stover as assistant dean in the College of Business and Economics at the University of Idaho, in Moscow, Idaho. In that role, she worked with students in the areas of recruitment, retention and assessment and received university-level, regional and national teaching and advising awards. She also has taught at the

University of Portland and Pacific University in Forest Grove, Ore. She received a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s in demography from Washington State University. She received her doctorate in business management from Washington State University. She is on the board of the DeKalb County Community Foundation, involved with the DeKalb Rotary Club and active with several student groups at Northern Illinois University. Stover and her husband, Dr. Doug Baker, live in DeKalb and have two daughters. Rung serves as president of Shaw Media Co., where he has been employed for 12 years. Rung has John Rung held various positions with the company, spending the majority of his time with the Northwest Herald in McHenry County. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Western Illinois University. In addition to his management role with the media company, Rung is a board member for the McHenry County Economic Development Corp., Inland Press Association and Shaw Media. He also serves on the Legislative Committee of the Illinois Press Association. Castle Bank has 14 banking offices located in DeKalb, Kendall, Kane, Boone and McHenry Counties.

Volo Auto Museum earns readers’ choice award VOLO – The Volo Auto Museum has been named No. 1 in the family trip/excursion category of Suburban Family Magazine’s 2014 Readers’ Choice Awards. “This was no easy feat, as ballots appeared over a fourmonth period in both Suburban Family Magazine and on our website,,” Publisher Jim Wolf wrote in a

letter to the museum from the Westmont-based magazine. “Winners are being announced in our January and February 2014 issue, which is currently on the street and at our website.” The Volo Auto Museum, 27582 Volo Village Road, Volo, features hundreds of classic, antique, muscle and Hollywood cars. “This is a great honor,” Museum Director Brian Grams said of the award. “The runners up were the Illinois Railway Museum, Brookfield Zoo, the Mid-Continent Railway Museum [North Freedom, Wis.], the Morton Arboretum, Blackberry Farms of Aurora, and Starved Rock State Park. So that’s some pretty impressive company.” For information, visit, call 815-385-3644 or find Volo Auto Museum on Facebook.

Broughton takes reins of RE/MAX Connections II MARENGO – Ben Broughton took the reins of RE/MAX Connections II as broker/ owner on Jan. 1, acquiring the office from its founder, Laura Heinberg. It is Ben part of the RE/ Broughton MAX Northern Illinois real estate network. Broughton, 40, is a Marengoarea native who left the tool and die industry 11 years ago to make a career in real estate sales, eventually becoming one of the top producing real estate brokers in McHenry County. “Owning an office is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, and when this opportunity arose, there was really no question about grasping it firmly,” said Broughton. “This office has a fantastic group of agents and a great staff.”

record companies and movie studios would’ve allowed their products to be sold online, and Apple changed all that,” noted John Sicher, publisher of Beverage Digest, a trade publication. The demand for greater convenience and personalization is being fueled by Millennials, or people in their 20s and 30s. Marketers say the group tends to shun mainstream brands, instead preferring options that allow for greater customization or choice. Ryan Mason, a 31-year-old data analyst in San Francisco, said convenience is the main reason that he likes his SodaStream. “Sparkling water in general was a luxury because it was so hard to get home,” said Mason, who used to carry

it home on his bike. People like Mason are why companies see potential in the at-home market. Coca-Cola, which is based in Atlanta, said this week it was buying a 10 percent stake in Green Mountain for $1.25 billion. The deal extends to the development of “Keurig Cold,” a machine that will let people make sodas, sports drinks and other beverages with a press of a button. Green Mountain says it will be introduced in 2015. Pricing hasn’t been determined. It’s not clear where the deal leaves Coca-Cola’s independent bottlers, which have the rights to sell Coke drinks in certain territories. But in a call with reporters, Coca-Cola CEO Muhtar Kent stressed they wouldn’t be left out in the cold. “This is not a zero sum game,” Kent said.

Agents save hours of research for travelers • TRAVEL Continued from page D1 This month, Kruse and 14 travel agents with Cary Travel Express will mark 25 years in business. She calls it the best job on earth – one in which she opens new worlds to local travelers. Kruse has been in the industry for more than three decades and has seen it change, but perhaps never more than with the emergence of Internet travel agencies. According to Bureau of Labor Statistics, travelers using the Internet to research and book their own trips are expected to continue to suppress demand for travel agents. Employment of travel agents is projected to decline 12 percent from 2012 to 2022. The industry employs 105,300 full time travel agents, according to the Bureau’s most recent statistics. While the Internet has created new competition, it isn’t all bad, Kruse said. Travelers can see full color pictures of their destinations. They can research ideas. And travel agents can take it from there. Kruse said she can save customer hours of research and thousands of mouse clicks. Furthermore, agents are there for clients if a travel crisis occurs – much like the problems the Massaros ran into. “You book online, and you look at a picture. When you get there, it doesn’t look like the picture, but you don’t have anyone to call,” Kruse said. “We’re there to go to bat for you if something happens.” Kruse and her agents are well-traveled, so part of their personal touch is advising clients with first-hand knowledge about the trips they are about to book. Travel agent’s contacts all over the globe also can provide a tailor-made trip, and often at matched or even lower prices than those found on the Internet, Kruse said. Cary Travel Express plans

Tax on Austrian bubbly irks Vienna’s upper crust By GEORGE JAHN The Associated Press VIENNA – Just when it seemed that Austria survived Europe’s financial crisis unscathed, austerity has hit – in the form of a tax on sekt, the country’s version of champagne. At less than 1 euro ($1.35) a bottle, the planned tax pales in severity compared to the hardships imposed on citizens of other EU nations in the past five years. It’s also only one of several tax hikes next month that will see Austrians paying more for luxury cars and tobacco. Yet it seems to be the tax causing the most furor. With economic statistics that shine compared to the rest of the 28-nation European Union, Austria’s new taxes seem more precautionary than necessary. Austrian unemployment last year was at 4.9 percent, the lowest among the 18 countries that use the euro. Inflation stayed under 1.5 percent and the budget deficit

A wine cellar of sparkling wine manufacturer Schlumberger in Vienna, Austria. Just when it seemed that Austria survived the Eurocrisis unscathed, austerity has hit – in the form of a tax on sekt, the country’s version of champagne. amounted to just over 2 percent of the gross domestic product in late 2013. Austrians’ median annual in-

come was over 25,000 euros – nearly $34,000. A combination of such earning

power and decades of falling prices has turned Austrian sparkling wine from a luxury drink to a choice for the masses at birthdays and other happy occasions. And yet, the tax is leaving a sour taste in the mouths of those who can most afford it – the thousands of bubbly-sipping ball goers who traditionally waltz away the winter at Vienna’s ornate palaces. Dozens of pricey galas are staged between January and March by organizations as diverse as the Vienna State Opera, the city’s confectioner, the pharmacists’ guild, or Austria’s hunting society. And guests at all of them sip sekt, which in its best incarnation can stand its own against fine champagne. While top-end tickets at the Opera Ball cost $25,000 for a VIP box and a bottle of sekt goes for 250 euro ($340), the sekt tax remains less than 1 euro. Vienna’s high society is still not amused. Even at the city’s most prestigious ball, “1 euro makes a big difference,” said Elisabeth Guertler, who

owns Vienna’s five-star Sacher hotel and heads the city’s famed Spanish Riding School of dancing white stallions. Opera Ball organizer Desiree Treichl-Stuergkh said she can’t understand “why Austrians should have to pay more to celebrate with domestic sekt.” Government officials note that EU law stipulates such a levy on most sparkling wine, saying the tax in Austria has existed for years but was set at zero. Part of the problem seems to be politics. The tax was the brainchild of the Socialist Party, the senior government coalition partner, which calls it a “luxury tax.” That infuriates both Austria’s sekt makers – who say they will lose market share to some exempted Italian products – and Vienna’s upper crust, made up of conservatives who are traditionally suspicious of the Socialists. “Sekt is not suited for use in the class struggle,” said Guertler.

Oil briefly tops $100 as demand for fuel rises The ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK – The price of oil briefly rose above $100 a barrel for the first time this year on rising demand for fuel and some positive sentiment about the U.S. job market. Benchmark U.S. crude for March delivery gained $2.04, or 2.1 percent, to close at $99.88 a barrel the New York Mercantile Exchange. Oil climbed to $100.21 in the afternoon before dropping back. Oil last topped $100 on Dec. 30. Energy analyst Stephen Schork said oil’s rise was brought about by rising prices for wholesale gasoline and low supplies of diesel and heating oil. That combination will encourage refiners to buy and process more crude oil. “It’s a function of products pulling crude,” he said. “The market needs product.” Heating oil supplies have declined as a cold and snowy winter has homeowners constantly cranking up the thermostat. The Energy Department said Wednesday that supplies of distillates, which include heating oil and diesel, fell by 2.4 million barrels last week and are now 12 percent below year-ago levels. Heating oil futures gained 6 cents to $3.05 a gallon. While some drivers have stayed indoors this winter, gasoline demand is turning out to be stronger than expected, Schork said. Wholesale gasoline futures increased 7 cents to $2.75 and gained 15 cents, or 6 percent over the last three days. That’s a sign that drivers can anticipate higher gasoline prices as the month goes along.

California leaders push for smartphone kill switch By TERRY COLLINS The Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO – Legislation unveiled Friday in California would require smartphones and other mobile devices to have a “kill switch” to render them inoperable if lost or stolen – a move that could be the first of its kind in the country. State Sen. Mark Leno, San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon, and other elected and law enforcement officials said the bill, if passed, would require mobile devices sold in or shipped to California to have the antitheft devices starting next year. Leno and Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner, both Democrats, co-authored the bill to be introduced this spring. They joined Gascon, New

York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and other authorities who have been demanding that manufacturers create kill switches to combat surging smartphone theft across the country. Leno called on the wireless industry to step up as smartphone robberies have surged to an all-time high in California. “They have a choice. They can either be a part of the problem or part of the solution, especially when there is one readily available,” Leno said. Leno and Gascon said they believe the bill would be the first of its kind in the U.S. Gascon and Schneiderman have given manufacturers a June deadline to come up with solutions to curb the theft of smartphones. CTIA-The Wireless As-

sociation, a trade group for wireless providers, says a permanent kill switch has serious risks, including potential vulnerability to hackers who could disable mobile devices and lock out not only individuals’ phones but also phones used by entities such as the Department of Defense, Homeland Security and law enforcement. The association has been working on a national stolen phone database that launched in November to remove any market for stolen smartphones. “These 3G and 4G/LTE databases, which blacklist stolen phones and prevent them from being reactivated, are part of the solution,” Michael Altschul, CTIA’s senior vice president and general counsel, said in a statement. “Yet we need more international

carriers and countries to participate to help remove the aftermarket abroad for these trafficked devices.” Almost one in three U.S. robberies involve phone theft, according to the Federal Communications Commission. Lost and stolen mobile devices – mostly smartphones – cost consumers more than $30 billion in 2012, the agency said in a study. In San Francisco alone, about 60 percent of all robberies involve the theft of a mobile device, Police Chief Greg Suhr said. In nearby Oakland, such thefts amount to about 75 percent of robberies, Mayor Jean Quan added. “We’re in California, the technological hub of the world,” Suhr said. “I can’t imagine someone would vote

against” the proposed kill switch law. Gascon said the industry makes an estimated $7.8 billion selling theft and loss insurance on mobile devices but must take action to end the victimization of its customers. “This is one of the areas in the criminal justice system where a technological solution can make a tremendous difference, so there’s absolutely no argument other than profit,” Gascon said. In 2013, about 136 million smartphones were sold in the U.S., according to International Data Corp., a Massachusetts-based researcher. More than 1 billion smartphones were sold worldwide last year, accounting for $330 billion in sales, IDC said. That’s up from 725 million in 2012.

Danger: Office Romance Ahead By Roberta Chinsky Matuson, Monster Contributing Writer You spend most of your waking hours at work. You rarely get out for lunch, never mind dinner. You’d like to meet that special someone, but you just don’t know where to look. Suddenly, Cupid shoots his arrow, and it hits the person in the next office. Your heart starts beating faster, and blood rushes to your head. Out with all reason -- love is in the air!

fair, you wouldn’t be in this dilemma, and the arrow would have pierced the heart of someone nice who works for the company across the street.

and suspicion:

Harassment Possibilities

“I can’t believe he’s going out with her.”

If you’re smart, you will deal with the real world and anticipate plenty of bloodshed before this tale concludes. One of you may need to leave the job if things don’t work out. If things do work out, one of you may have to go, because it’s against company policy to date fellow employees.

“Of course he got the raise. Look who he’s dating.”

And then there’s the H word and all it can entail. If your relationship ends badly, will your ex-love tell HR you were making unwanted advances? Think about how a harassment suit will impact your career. Then join a local dating service.

Stop. Sure, meetings will be more fun. You already have lots in common. But how often do office romances work? And when it ends, what will your life be like? Will you be peering around corners to make sure your former love isn’t in the hall and avoiding the company picnic for fear your ex will flaunt a new love interest? Is this any way to live?

One Promotion Later...

Before you throw your next promotion to the wind, here are five reasons dating your coworker might not be such a good idea.

Play It Cool

Let’s say you become involved with someone in your department, and you receive a promotion. Now you’re in a relationship with your subordinate. This opens up the possibility of blackmail. And what happens when it comes to conducting reviews and disciplining your honey? You get the picture.

Still thinking of dating a coworker? Better start popping extra vitamins and heighten your sense of discretion. You’ll need a lot of energy and concentrated effort to keep your office romance just between the two of you. And when coworkers eventually find out, you may be the subject of ridicule

Romance vs. Reality Unfortunately, this is not a tale by the Brothers Grimm, so you can’t count on a happy ending. You can rail against the unfairness of it all, but think of it this way: If life were

If you want people to focus on your professional abilities, don’t give them reasons to fuel the rumor mill.

It’s Not Just About You You may think this is a private affair, but is it really? Logic tells you your romantic involvement will impact your coworkers directly. If you sit together in the company cafeteria, will people now feel they should give you privacy? Will they exclude you from certain conversations, because they don’t know what you’ll relay to your new love? Consciously or subconsciously, your relationship may influence decisions that go well beyond a lunchroom. Your romance may color everyone’s judgment with regard to promotions, projects, team building and responsibilities. The relationship could make it more difficult for your department -- and depending on your position, your company -- to operate effectively.
