Area nonprofits seek ways to keep up with demand

CARY – Fox Valley Systems was cited Thursday for 26 safety violations in connection with the March explosion that left three workers with serious injuries. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration released its detailed findings of the March 6 incident at the Cary paint plant, 640 Industrial Drive, a marking and striping company that does traffic and athletic field painting. The report includes six willful violations and recommends $262,000 in fines. OSHA found multiple violations of its safety management standards for facilities that work with highly hazardous chemicals and hit the Cary plant with two willful violations for a lack of easily accessible exits. With clothing in flames, one of the employees had to crawl under conveyor belts and past a blocked exit to

Workers also were operating trucks powered by propane in the production area – another willful violation, according to the report. In all, six of the violations were considered willful – those found to be committed with a knowing disregard or indifference to employee safety and health. The other willful violations included a lack of written, safe operating procedures; equipment that wasn’t

hile many people associate summer with sunshine, vacations and beaches, Phyllis Mueller defines the season with a simple equation. Donations down plus needs up equals summer. Mueller, director of the Diaper Bank at St. Paul Episcopal Church in Crystal Lake, said summer is no vacation for many nonprofits that struggle to maintain the same stream of donations they experience during the holiday season and school year. At peak donation times, the Diaper Bank is able to provide 20,000 to 25,000 diapers a month to people in need, but Mueller said that amount is cut by more than half in the summer months. The summer slump can be so devastating that last year’s total of 250,000 donated diapers still met only half the demand. “Diapers are something people don’t think about much, and they don’t realize there is no other help

It’s just us,” Mueller said. “You try very hard to inform people, but there are vacations, kids at home, time with the family, and I can empathize with that, but it makes it harder.”

To combat the problem, the agency added some additional drives this month to boost donations and make up for lost summer time.

CHICAGO – A U.S. judge sentenced a longtime fugitive to nine years in prison Thursday for leading what was one of the world’s largest heroin networks, extending from suppliers in Thailand to distributors working out of a boutique in Chicago. The sentencing of Musiliu Balogun highlights a seismic shift in how heroin gets to the U.S.. In the 1990s, when Balogun was in his heyday as a drug trafficker, most of the heroin originated from Southeast Asia and got to the United States through couriers. Now, most of it is smug-

gled across the southern border by Mexican cartels. The hub of the network Balogun oversaw was the Women’s Affair Boutique, a clothing store on Chicago’s North Side. Balogun lived in a $2,400 Bangkok apartment while other traffickers “worked for peanuts,” one suspect complained, according to court documents. Standing in the Chicago court Thursday with his legs shackled, the 53-year-old Nigerian fumbled with a folder in his hands and repeatedly bowed to U.S. District Judge James Holderman during a brief statement.

GENERAL INFORMATION: 815-459-4040

Someday cultured beef may replace tofu After a couple of years as a practicing vegetarian – indeed, it was practice – I am ready for almost anything that is disguised as meat. I’m willing to give it a try. I knowingly ate tofu after all. Regularly. And I looked forward to it. Tofu is beige, although some may argue it is off-white. It comes in cubes and is weirdly gelatinous, but you can’t see through it. It doesn’t have a smell, and it really doesn’t have a taste. It just is. And where a recipe calls for meat, you use tofu in its place. Maybe it’s the name, but it’s hard to warm up to tofu and be profuse and say it tastes heavenly. It’s a protein substitute that is not an animal. It’s processed soybeans. And that makes the kind folks at the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals happy, and they are a testy lot. But you really can’t slice off a halfinch slab of tofu and grill it up as a burger. For one thing, it takes forever to brown tofu into a color that appears digestible. And when you bite into it, you are getting a double dose of white bread – no taste whatsoever. It doesn’t feel good in your mouth. If you cube it, brown it and mix it in with other ingredients, it’s not so bad because you don’t notice it, and the other flavors overwhelm it. Tofu

8LOTTERY

VIEWS Dick Peterson becomes an afterthought. You forget about it. But you can feel good because you aren’t requiring an animal to be killed to feed you. Not that I have a problem with eating beef and pork and chicken and turkey. I grew up in South St. Paul, Minn., which at one time had the world’s largest stockyards, and I spent my formative years in Donnellson, Iowa, working on farms where cattle and hogs were raised to go to market, i.e., to be butchered and eaten by people. We were meat eaters. It was only natural. We didn’t think about how the meat ended up on our plates, just that it tasted good. Some things are not meant to be thought about while eating, and that especially goes for slaughterhouses. If you think too much about it, you will lose your appetite. That would be the ick factor. And if anything is icky, it is slaughtering animals for dinner. We’ve conditioned ourselves not to think about it.

I came across the ick factor in reading last month about a $331,000 – give or take a thousand dollars – quarter-pounder. Scientists at Maastricht University in The Netherlands produced a hamburger made from cultured stem cells that were harvested from a cow’s shoulder and grown in a dish. They’ve been working on this for four years, and it took three months for the stem cells to grow into enough meat for a 5-ounce hamburger patty. It’s called in vitro meat or test-tube meat or “schmeat” or cultured beef. All but the last one engage the ick factor or the gag reflex. We don’t want to eat test-tube anything. But cultured beef sounds royal, a food fit for kings. I’ll stick with cultured beef. It was seasoned with salt, egg powder, bread crumbs and saffron, and it was also mixed with red beet juice, which I am supposing turned a tofu-colored patty into something that resembled a hamburger patty on first look. And it was fried with a little butter, not pressed into a George Foreman Grill. The taste tester cut off a substantial piece of the burger – about $25,000 worth – and put the entire piece in her mouth. And she didn’t gag or spit the meat into a paper towel. She chewed and chewed and was moderately

pleased with it. But it was missing an important ingredient – fat to give it that juicy flavor that hamburgers need. And it could have used a squirt of catsup. The scientists are all over the fat; the chef is to blame for not slathering the meat in catsup. At $331,000 for 5 ounces, that works out to about $1 million a pound, and the price point might be a bit high. Scientists are saying it will take 10 or 20 years to perfect cultured beef, so I’m guessing the price will come down substantially. Someday, there will be factories producing cultured beef. Nothing killed, everything grown from stem cells. I’ve eaten vegetable burgers, ground vegetable meat and vegetable bratwurst – no I won’t go near vegetable hot dogs; we all have our limits – and I haven’t been disappointed. I’m waiting for the day I can sink my teeth into a million-dollar burger, which certainly will be delectable compared with a tofu burger. Science can’t solve tofu.

Critics question Illinois Capitol’s new $670K doors

Northwest Herald Web Poll Question The Northwest Herald invites you to voice your opinion. Log on to www. NWHerald.com and vote on today’s poll question:

What do you tend to donate more often to charity?

The ASSOCIATED PRESS SPRINGFIELD – Critics are befuddled by Illinois’ decision to pay nearly $670,000 for three sets of copper-plated wooden doors at the Capitol building, saying it is too “elegant” a purchase for a state whose pension fund is underfunded by $100 billion. The ornate doors, which are part of a $50 million renovation, were custom-made to resemble the original oak and black walnut doors that had bronze ornamentation. The building is a National Historic Landmark.

Count on Me...

Andrew Killinger

The doors that were replaced were made of glass and metal. “Every other bit of our infrastructure is crumbling, too,” State Rep. Jeanne Ives, a Wheaton Republican, told the Chicago Sun-Times. “At some point, you say we’ll just do this amount [on life-safety and disability upgrades] now, and we’ll upgrade later to an old stately look when we can afford to. That’s what a responsible homeowner does, right?” She added: “I’d have slapped on ordinary doors and called it a day.”

billion capital construction program approved by the General Assembly. Questions about the project have been referred to Steve Brown, spokesman for House Speaker Michael Madigan. Brown said Thursday the project went through the state’s normal bidding and procurement process, and the doors were part of a master plan approved by the Office of the Capitol Architect Board. The board includes representatives from the offices of all four legislative leaders, Brown said.

Laurence Msall, president of the financial watchdog group Civic Federation, said the doors are an example of the state’s poor judgment. “In order to accomplish such an elegant rehabilitation of the Capitol building, the state Legislature skipped the requirement of justifying why that investment was a higher priority than the needed improvements to our water, roads, public transit and education systems that are not being fully funded,” he said. The renovation is being paid for by construction bonds that were part of a $31

Health law coverage may track workplace cost shift U.S.: Attacks make Syria top security risk By RICARDO ALONSO–ZALDIVAR The Associated Press

Americans – especially after the White House refused to send military support earlier in the Syrian war. The recent chemical weapons attack killed 1,429 people, U.S. intelligence officials say. Other estimates are somewhat lower. The wider war has killed more than 100,000. In House and Senate hearings this week designed to seek congressional approval to strike Assad ‘s government – probably with cruise missiles but not with ground troops – top administration officials pleaded with skeptical lawmakers to consider the risks of doing nothing. “Iran is hoping you look the other way,” Secretary of State John Kerry told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. “Our inaction would surely give them a permission slip for them to at least misinterpret our intention, if not to put it to the test. Hezbollah is hoping that isolationism will prevail. North Korea is hoping that ambivalence carries the day.” “They are all listening for our silence,” Kerry said.

By LARA JAKES The Associated Press WASHINGTON – For the first time in more than two years of a bloody civil war, President Barack Obama has declared Syria a national security threat that must be answered with a military strike – and in doing so he is warning Americans as much about the leaders of Iran and North Korea as about Bashar Assad. America’s credibility with those countries will be an immediate casualty if it stands down now on Syria, administration officials say in making their case for U.S. missile strikes. Following an Aug. 21 chemical weapons attack outside Damascus, the White House declared Syria’s 2-year civil war a top risk to American interests. If the U.S. fails to respond, officials said this week, it could encourage other hostile governments to use or develop weapons of mass destruction without fear of being punished. It’s a connection that’s not immediately clear to many

Durbin, Bustos give Thomson prison update

VERNON HILLS – A Vernon Hills man who was convicted in the death his 54-year-old wife was ordered to pay her family $6 million in a wrongful death lawsuit. The Waukegan News Sun reported the civil ruling was handed down by a Lake County judge. Ronald Stolberg was sentenced to eight years in prison for involuntary manslaughter in the 2011 death of his wife, Rachel. Prosecutors say Stolberg was angry at the mentally ill woman and put his knee into her back to cut off her breathing and then stayed on top of her for at least two minutes.

THOMSON – U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin and U.S. Rep. Cheri Bustos said Thursday that the U.S. Bureau of Prisons is ready to start the process of opening Thomson prison but they are waiting for approval of the federal budget first. Durbin and Bustos met with about 40 residents at a school in Thomson in northwestern Illinois to give an update on the status of the facility. The state of Illinois owned the prison but never fully opened it. The federal government bought it for $165 million last fall.

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama’s health care law appears to mirror a trend in job-based insurance, where employees are being nudged into cost-saving plans that require them to pay a bigger share of their medical expenses. Two independent studies out this week highlighted attractive prices for less-generous “bronze” plans that will offer low monthly premiums but require patients to pick up more of the cost if they get sick. Consumers might avoid “rate shock” over premiums, but some could end up struggling with bigger bills for the care they receive. The Obama plans will be available starting Oct. 1 for people who don’t have access to coverage on the job. Studies by the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation and Avalere Health pro-

A basket of medical supplies awaits storage Oct. 11 in Brookhaven, Miss. The No. 1 question about President Barack Obama’s health care law is whether consumers will be able to afford the coverage. vided the first look at rates filed by insurers around the country, ahead of the Oct. 1 opening of new state insurance markets under the law. Consumers will use the markets to find out whether they qualify for tax credits to help pay their premiums and to pick a private insurance

plan from a range of coverage levels: bronze, silver, gold and platinum. Come Jan. 1, virtually everyone in the United States will be required to have coverage, or face fines if they don’t. At the same time, insurance companies no longer can turn away people in poor

health. “What was really striking as we dug into the numbers is how inexpensive the bronze plans are,” said Larry Levitt, a Kaiser vice president. Avalere, a private data analysis firm, found the average monthly premium for a bronze plan is $274, compared with $336 for the next level of coverage, a silver plan. The savings from going with bronze adds up to $744 annually, and that’s off the sticker price, before federal tax credits that will reduce premiums for an estimated 4 out of 5 customers in the new markets. It’s “likely to entice healthier enrollees to opt for a less generous benefit package,” said Caroline Pearson, a lead author of the study. The law’s tax credits will make low-cost plans even more appealing. The tax credits work by limiting what you pay for premiums to a given percentage of your income.

the country’s Islamist president. The strike raised fears of a militant campaign of revenge for the coup and the likelihood of an even tougher hand by authorities against protesters demanding Mohammed Morsi’s return.

Burke: Fines remain in ‘negotiation phase’ • OSHA Continued from page A1 up to standards; and a failure to conduct regular equipment inspections. The report says the March explosion occurred when “flammable vapors ignited in the production facility, resulting in an explosion and fire that caused extensive damage to the building and the interconnected aerosol-propellant charging rooms.” The three injured individuals suffered burns that ranged from first- to third-degree, OSHA spokeswoman Rhonda

Burke said. The blocked exits contributed to the injuries, the report says. A company that receives violations has up to 15 days from the time the violations are sanctioned to either contest them or reach a settlement with OSHA. If they choose to contest, the case goes in front of the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission. That process could take several months to reach a ruling, Burke said. OSHA has placed Fox Valley Systems in its Severe Violator Enforcement Program,

which subjects the company to further inspections if OSHA has “reasonable grounds” to believe there are similar violations. A separate inspection on May 16 resulted in an additional 11 violations and fines of $22,800. That report was issued in August. The fines are yet to be paid and remain in the “negotiation phase,” Burke said. Fox Valley Systems, an employer of 23 people, hasn’t reopened since the explosion. The Cary Fire Protection District hasn’t yet determined its own cause of the explosion. Its investigation is ongoing.

Some nonprofits have found sustained success • DONATIONS

• TRAFFICKING Continued from page A1 “I sincerely apologize for all the pain I have caused,” the native Yoruba speaker said in a soft voice. Once nicknamed “the policeman” for the discipline he imposed on subordinate traffickers, Balogun added in court, “I’ve learned a lot and I’m a changed person now.” In imposing sentence, Holderman said the harm caused by trafficking drugs into the U.S. “has been momentous.” Statistics suggest heroin use in the U.S. has soared. Numbers of people who said they used heroin in the past year rose by 66 percent from 2007 and 2011, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration reports. While Balogun trafficked pricey Asian heroin injected with a needle, today’s Mexican- and Colombian-made heroin is more potent but cheaper and easier to ingest in its powdery form, said Jack Riley, the Drug Enforcement Administration’s head in Chicago. “What’s scary is we

thought we had heroin licked. And look where we are now,” said Riley, who as a young agent in the mid-’90s worked on the investigation that eventually brought down Balogun’s network. For at least some Mexican cartels, heroin trafficked to the U.S. is now their No. 1 moneymaker, Riley said. While the majority of heroin in the United States comes in via Mexico, Asian heroin and heroin from Afghanistan still makes up the bulk of supply to Europe, China and Russia, Riley said. Balogun, of Ogun, Nigeria, initially faced a life sentence, but a plea deal in June following his extradition from Holland meant the maximum was just nine years. Defense lawyer Raymond Wigell said his client could be out of prison in as little as 2½ years with time served in the Netherlands. Asked outside court if a few years behind bars would be appropriate for someone who played so central a role in the massive network, Wigell said, “This ring has been dead for 15, 17 years. ... He’s out of that life.”

Based in Thailand and Cambodia in the 1990s, Balogun was adept at recruiting couriers in hotels or airports, and they would then smuggle the heroin to the U.S. aboard airlines – sometimes swallowing it in small bags and expelling it after reaching Chicago, Riley said. “This guy was a genius, including at recruiting couriers,” he said. “He also had ties to the Thai government at the time and with its military.” Among the other key figures in the network were Nigerian women working out of the Chicago boutique shop – dubbed “queen bees” by investigators; they received the kilos of contraband from couriers, then distributed it in 100-gram containers to local street gangs, according to court documents. The first breaks for investigators in the 1990s were the capture of couriers, who then revealed telephone numbers they were ordered to call upon arrival in Chicago. Authorities used that information to work their way up the chain of command, he said.

How and where to help

Continued from page A1 The largest drive will be at D’Andrea Banquets in Crystal Lake on Sept. 21. The “Bountiful Hors d’oeuvres” event will feature a silent auction and open bar. Tickets are $75. Donations to other agencies also have slumped in the summer, but those groups did not experience the same hit. Jacqueline Piggott, executive director of the Blessing Barn in Crystal Lake, said one look at her inventory sheet was all it took to see that donations decreased from June through August. While she generally fills three sheets’ worth of items donated to the barn every month, Piggott was down to about one sheet per month in the summer. Piggott said she survived comfortably because of enough items in storage, and she expects a bulk of new inventory when unsold items from final garage sales come in. “When we started, there were about the same 30 women that would come in all the time,” she said. “Now we serve more than 100 families, and some people come from as far as Marengo. What I need more than anything else is another space.” As Piggott searches for someone willing to donate more space, leaders at the Senior Care Volunteer Network are starting to figure out how to rebound from their first year of experiencing an overall decrease in donations. Sarah Ponitz, executive director for the agency, said she has seen positive results and more interest after changing the name from Faith in Action to Senior Care Volunteer Network, before it gives potential donors a much

clearer picture of the agency’s mission. Setting up the major annual fundraiser in April also helps prepare for the slower summer months. But with an organization touting 375 volunteers contributing more than 24,000 hours of service, there is always a need. “We really need volunteers, especially drivers,” Ponitz said. “There are never enough volunteers.” As most nonprofit organizations look to rebound from slow summers, some have found sustained success. Andrea Franzen, director

of FISH of McHenry Food Pantry, said the organization had a strong summer and was able to serve the roughly 600 families – about 2,200 individuals – it averages each month. Franzen said she expected even more community support in September because as children go back to school, families no longer have to provide the lunches and sometimes breakfasts they did during the summer. “We’re very fortunate to have strong community support continuously throughout the year,” she said. “It doesn’t happen in many places.”

A big step in township elimination Those who defend township government in Illinois say it’s needed because it’s the closest level of government everyday residents have access to. In reality, township government is antiquated, spends a lot of taxpayer money, and is full of examples of blatant cronyism. The state’s 1,433 townships – 17 of which are in McHenry County – add another layer of For the record government to a state with far too As Illinois examines consolimany layers of dating and eliminating levels of government. government, doing away with As Illinois townships should be at the top examines conof the list. solidating and eliminating levels of government, doing away with townships should be at the top of the list. That’s why we are encouraged that Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn signed Senate Bill 1585, which allows Evanston Township voters to formally abolish it. The bill also spells out the steps to turn over services and property if a township is eliminated. Supporters of eliminating townships say it was that uncertainty that scared away voters who were asked to support elimination. Townships do provide some essential services, such as road maintenance, transportation for seniors, and food pantries for those in need. But for every beneficial service a township provides, examples of waste, inefficiency or inconsistency can be uncovered. Look no further than the process of assessing property or at the infighting in Grafton Township. Disputes over a new township hall cost taxpayers $566,070 in legal expenses from 2011-2013 – $260,421 of which was spent in 2011. All of those services can be absorbed by the county or municipalities at a much lower cost and with more efficiency. Longtime township critic Bob Anderson, a barber from Wonder Lake, has unsuccessfully tried eliminating township government in the past. He’s confident that since a transition plan has been established, his effort can earn more support. We encourage Anderson to continue his efforts to eliminate township governments by letting the voters decide.

Wrong place, wrong time Here begins the list of similarities between Michael Behenna and Bradley Manning: Neither is a hero. Both were soldiers. Both are from Oklahoma. Each was court-martialed and got a sentence considered too long by their supporters and too short by their detractors. There ends the list of similarities. Here begins the litany of differences: Behenna was sentenced to 25 years in a military prison for the unpremeditated killing of an Iraqi with known terrorist ties. The killing took place near a combat zone in a theater of war. Manning was sentenced to 35 years in a military prison for the deliberate, calculated theft of classified information. His crime took place in the climate-controlled comfort of an office. Since a death was involved in the Behenna case but not in the Manning case, the disparity in sentencing may seem unfair. It is indeed unfair. Behenna got too much time. Manning got too little. Few would make the argument that Behenna is a hero. He joined the Army after 9/11 and was a 1st lieutenant at the time of the shooting. Behenna wanted to serve his country and was willing to put himself in harm’s way in Iraq. He said he shot and killed Ali Mansur in selfdefense. Outside of Oklahoma in general and his hometown of Edmond in particular, Behenna’s name is scarcely known. He never enjoyed the political prisoner or living martyr status that Manning has had from Day One. But this young officer, who volunteered to fight for his country, a man who made a mistake in a dangerous place at a dangerous time, is a political prisoner because of international relations, America’s image and the timing of Mansur’s killing. Were it not for these factors, Behenna likely would have gotten a lesser sentence. His family has worked tirelessly to call attention to his case, but Behenna has gotten as much notice in all the months since the killing as Manning typically gets in one day. If Behenna is denied parole and Manning gets released as soon as he’s eligible, it’s entirely possible that Behenna will spend more time behind bars than Manning. That would send a terrible message to the young men and women who enlist in the military and risk their lives for this country. The Oklahoman

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Fix real problems To the Editor: Scott Reeder, it’s only been in the past 10 years or more that the unions have asked for a small amount of money from their workers to lobby for better working conditions. There have been lobbyists in government for decades supplied with money from big business trying to shortchange, decrease health care, and take away a safe working environment. Isn’t that what Hay Market Square was all about? Don’t you see how they needed to be more proactive in today’s world? You are right in saying the unions are shrinking, That is a sad state of affairs when you consider all the training and experience a union member has to have to keep his job. More and more, I see people in jobs with no knowledge or experience, muddling through at the expense of all of us when the job could of been completed more efficiently, with higher quality, and safer. Please don’t misunderstand me and think that I don’t realize that the unions don’t have their own

problems and fat cats. Why don’t we all start working toward fixing the real problems – our state and federal government? We all need to be a lot more proactive if it’s going to be fixed. John Martin Fox River Grove

Forest-fire coverage To the Editor: I’ve been looking for some reporting on the causes of the big fires out West – going beyond immediate causes such as a tossed cigarette or neglected campfire to consider the question of management (and mismanagement) of these ecosystems. I was delighted to see a brief reference to this in your Aug. 28 edition. It noted that forest ecologists attribute the scale and severity of some of the fires, including those threatening Yosemite National Park, in part to “historic policies of fire suppression to protect Sierra timber interests,” which “left a century’s worth of fuel in the fire’s path.” In other words, management of these forests for the sake of certain narrow, short-term economic

interests accounts, at least in part, for fires that now threaten some of our most treasured natural areas – to say nothing of the long-term economic value of many of these forests. My only question is, why aren’t we seeing this, the real background of the story, being covered in depth on the front page? Bill Jordan III Woodstock

Obama learns the dangers of Mideast red lines WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama, though he artfully articulated the need to respond to the use of chemical weapons in Syria, is haunted by his own actions and words, as well as those of the man he succeeded. With no good options, the president made a persuasive case over the weekend for taking action against the “heinous” crime of chemical warfare, and assured a war-weary nation that any military mission would be “limited in duration and scope.” An immediate response was ruled out, however, as the administration sent Congress a draft resolution authorizing the use of force in Syria, even though that is likely to entail an ugly debate involving attacks on the administration’s policies and credibility from the political left and the right. But acting now and alone – Britain has dropped out of any coalition of the willing, and the United Nations is calling for delay – would have been worse. There is lingering resentment about Obama’s stretching of the interpretation of the executive’s war powers and brushing aside Congress in the campaign to topple Moammar Gadhafi in Libya in 2011. An NBC News poll published Aug. 30 found that almost 80 percent of the public wanted congressional approval for any military action in Syria. Obama also is a victim of his own rhetoric. He first drew

VIEWS Albert Hunt a “red line” last year, vowing that any use of weapons of mass destruction by Bashar Assad would be unacceptable. It seems clear, say lawmakers who’ve been briefed, that Assad ordered the most recent attack, and it wasn’t the first. Critics of intervention are now asking, if we strike now, what do we do when Assad does it again? All this is being debated in the context of George W. Bush’s extraordinary duplicity a decade ago when the U.S. invaded Iraq to remove weapons of mass destruction that proved to be a myth. The result: Tragic loss of life, treasure, a region even further destabilized, and the loss of U.S. credibility. Given that history, the British Parliament’s refusal last week to support military action in Syria may seem wrong, but not irrational. Former U.S. Defense Secretary Bill Cohen, one of many former top officials who are rarely consulted by this White House (he ran the Pentagon during the Kosovo air attacks in 1999), worries that the president’s plans for Syria are merely tactical, without a clear strategic objective or mission. Has the administration, for instance,

8THE FIRST AMENDMENT

seriously considered the likelihood that Russia and Iran will resupply Assad immediately after a strike? Will anything the U.S. does, Cohen wonders, make Assad think, “Hey, we might lose this thing, let’s negotiate a settlement.” Others worry about being dragged into a protracted engagement. “Unless the administration gets real lucky, they’re in a terrible box,” said Aaron David Miller, a longtime U.S. diplomat. The president has to respond, he said, though there is the danger of “an incremental drip by drip intervention.” That would be a disaster. After Iraq and Afghanistan, U.S. voters won’t tolerate another war unless critical national interests are at stake. That’s why one of the wisest foreign policy intellectuals of our age, former National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, argues that the president should forgo a feel-good strike and should use the occasion to try to mobilize a global movement to head off a dangerous regional conflict. Use the U.N. to condemn the use of chemical weapons – leaving open the question of who used them – then, try to convince the Russians that it’s also in their interest to avoid a huge conflagration in the Middle East. There’s not much indication that the Obama administration has any inclination to take on

such a daunting task. As we think through this moment, it’s worth remembering another time a U.S. president drew a red line and declared that his critics might be willing to capitulate, but not him. In short order, he retreated. That was President Ronald Reagan and Lebanon, almost 30 years ago. In October 1983, 241 U.S. servicemen were killed when a truck bomb struck their barracks in Beirut. A little more than three months later, Reagan, facing pressure from Democrats in Congress for a withdrawal, said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal that the U.S. had to show resolve by staying the course in Lebanon. He took aim at one of his critics, Democratic House Speaker Tip O’Neill: “He may be ready to surrender, but I’m not.” Four days later, Reagan ordered the Marines to begin leaving Beirut. He later explained in his memoirs that the “irrationality of Middle Eastern politics forced us to rethink our policy.” This doesn’t suggest a retreat is in order today. It is a reminder to avoid setting red lines unless the consequences are carefully considered and we understand the politics of the Middle East are worse, and more dangerous, than ever. • Albert R.

FOX RIVER GROVE – Home tours of architectural or historically significant houses in the village are allowed, but there are now conditions in place. The Village Board on Thursday adopted an ordinance that requires people who give home tours to obtain a special-use permit. Special-use permits are approved or denied by the Village Board. Under the rules that were approved, a home tour is identified as use of an owner-occupied residence or property with special architectural or historical significance for either home tours or special community-related events or activities, or both, that involve members of the public, whether any fee or donation is involved. Home-tour rules do not apply to showing a residence or a property to potential purchasers or renters under the proposal. People who give home tours would have to submit a parking and traffic plan and a calendar of proposed events and activities. There could be limitations on hours, the number of tours and the number of people allowed to participate in the tours. Signage and other advertising would be restricted, and there would be periodic inspections by the village.

D-158 looks to execute debt restructuring plan

Bid for Wonder Lake dredging up for vote By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com

Rising interest rates force board to make changes By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO sdibenedetto@shawmedia.com HUNTLEY – District 158 will look to quickly execute the initial part of its $106 million debt restructuring plan, after escalating interest rates forced board members Thursday to make changes. In a special meeting, board members unanimously authorized the district to restructure up to $50 million in debt for the first six years of its restructuring plan, after members authorized a limit of $43 million earlier this summer. Board members and district administrators were initially hoping that recent increases to bond interest

But the board made clear that the Huntley school district can’t wait on the market any longer. “Seeing the trend and where things are going, it’s almost like the train is leaving the station, and we have to decide whether or not we hop on board,” member Michael Fleck said. The district’s debt payments increase dramatically by the new year. It would likely force the district to

increase property taxes to pick up the tab, if the district couldn’t restructure payments. The plan that restructures $106 million in district debt was in part meant to capitalize on low interest rates brought on by the economic recession. The plan also extends debt repayments by 10 years, ending in 2034. Board members approved the restructuring plan earlier this year to

WONDER LAKE – As the association behind a long debated and delayed dredging project at Wonder Lake waits on a final permit from the state, it is preparing to start construction on the first phase this fall. The Wonder Lake Master Property Owners Association’s board of directors is set to vote on a $2.7 million contract at a special meeting Saturday morning. The bid came in “significantly” lower than the only other bid the association received, lake manager Randy Stowe said. While the association had hoped for it to come in lower, it was within the consulting engineering firm’s estimates, Association President Dick Hilton said. The contract would cover the construction of a sedi-

ment drying facility, which would need to be built before any dredging can happen. The restoration project is designed to deepen Wonder Lake by churning up soil at the bottom of the lake and then sucking it up, Stowe said. The soil and water then will be deposited in the sediment drying facility, which is basically a dug-out basin with a concrete structure to control the flow of water. The project includes a engineered liner, which is two feet of compacted soil at the bottom of the basin, Stowe said. The liner, which is required by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, provides a safeguard against possible pollutants. The liner added about $400,000 to the cost of the project, Stowe said. The Illinois EPA is the final agency the association

McHENRY: ARRESTS

First Friday to feature portraits exhibit Three McHenry By KURT BEGALKA editorial@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – The First Friday event on Friday in the Dole Mansion at Lakeside Legacy Arts Park in Crystal Lake is a first in many respects. Titled “Visage: Out of the Ordinary Portraits,” the juried exhibit showcases 14 artists and features an array of mediums including photography, mixed media, sculpture and oils. “Portraits are usually downplayed in art shows. Artists tend not to bring them because they don’t sell,” said Jeffrey Sevener, an English teacher and artist from Crystal Lake. “Nobody wants to buy a portrait of someone they don’t know.” But rather than shrink from that challenge, First Friday artists Sevener and Angela Swan of Lakewood turned the facial form on its head and recruited a number of other artists to do likewise. “We thought about trying

Sevener, a Crystal Lake Central High School graduate who counts the 1920s among his inspirations, favors spray and acrylic paints used in a way that creates stark contrast – using color, shadow or bright light. “In recent history we have not done such a broad call for art under a theme like this,” said Erin McElroy, advancement coordinator for the Lakeside Legacy Foundation. “You can see in every portrait a story. … There are different

perspectives, different mediums. Each mini-exhibit is awesome.” McElroy cited Ginnie Lange, a Crystal Lake photographer who chronicled the people of Ghana after partnering with the nonprofit relief organization International Aid Services. Her images in the Friday show reflect stories of hope, betterment and triumph over appalling circumstances. “One of my most sincere ambitions is to see my photography used to change lives,” Lange said. “I strive to capture images that will awaken in all of us the desire to reach outside ourselves and extend a hand.” The McHenry County His-

Continued from page B1 Residential property owners giving tours became an issue in recent years when the village filed charges alleging that Bettendorf Castle owner Michael Strohl had violated residential zoning rules by inviting visitors to his home for a tour. Strohl was found not guilty. Bettendorf Castle is a house and grounds modeled after a castle in Luxembourg that includes turrets, a drawbridge and a dungeon. Board members said the ordinance, which included updates on home occupation rules, was not specially written for the Bettendorf Castle. Trustee Michael Schiestel said the ordinance addresses part of the castle issue. Village President Robert Nunamaker said the village’s ordinances were previously silent on home tours. “We believe it’s fair and works for the whole village,” Nunamaker said. “Time will tell.” Julie Tappendorf, an attorney for Ancel Glink, was hired by the village to assist in writing the ordinance. “The ordinance is very clear of what’s allowed, what

By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO sdibenedetto@shawmedia.com McHENRY – Two teenagers and a 20-year-old were arrested Thursday in connection with stealing from several vehicles in and near the Brittany Heights subdivision in McHenry. Luke M. Poulos, 19, of 5816 W. Radcliff Court, McHenry; James R. Johnson, 20, of 920 N. River Road, McHenry; and Dylan L. Humphrey, 18, of 2815 Bayview Road, McHenry, are each charged with burglary to a motor vehicle, a Class 2 felony, and theft, a Class A misdemeanor. Humphrey faces an additional charge of possession of a controlled substance, a Class 4 felony.

Police found Poulos and Johnson in the area about 4:30 a.m. Thursday when responding to a call for the burglaries. The two were in possession of stolen goods from cars in the area, according to a news release from the McHenry Police Department. Humphrey was taken into custody about 8 a.m. near the 1200 block of Green Street, the release said. All three were taken to the McHenry County Jail and held without bond. An ongoing investigation may lead to additional charges. Police are asking anyone who was a victim of a recent vehicle burglary and hasn’t reported the incident to call the department’s Investigation Division at 815-363-2599.

She said Oak Park has a similar ordinance regulating home tours and requiring special-use permits. Tappendorf said she is not aware if that ordinance has been challenged. Robert Hanlon, attorney for the Strohls, would not comment Thursday on whether his clients planned to file suit against the village, but criticized the new rules. “Unfortunately the village of Fox River Grove officials have apparently decided ... that my clients’ First Amendment rights to assemble don’t appear to be wanted in Fox River Grove,” Hanlon said. “For whatever the reason, the village of Fox River Grove wants to trample on my clients’ rights.”

Nippersink Creek, like most streams, used to go back and forth and meander around. The McHenry County Conservation District hopes to restore another 3.5 miles of the creek to how it looked before a 1984 project that straightened it to make it better for agriculture, said Ed Collins, the district’s director of land preservation and natural resources. The straightened portion was returned to its meandering course in 1999, the hills were rebuilt, and the ditch was abandoned, he said. Two more sections were restored in 2000 and 2001.

But despite not being straightened, areas downstream also were affected. The goal of straightening a stream is to get the water as quickly through the area as possible, which means the water cut deeper and stream banks had fallen in, Collins said. The plan calls for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to install five rocky rapid areas called riffles in the stream, bring the creek back to its original grade and restore the banks to a more gentle slope along a 3.5-mile section of Nippersink Creek that runs from about the center of Glacial Park, where the dechannelization project ended, almost to North Solon. The oak woodlands and

savanna in Glacial Park will remain, but the non-native species will be removed and the area will be replanted with natural wetlands plants. The changes will mean better water quality, a better wildlife and fish habitat and improvements for those fishing and kayak and canoe users because gentler slopes make it easier for everyone to get down to the stream, and water levels will be more stable, Collins said. With Glacial Park returned to a floodplain, residents downstream also could see less flooding, he said. The conservation district still is a step away from implementing the plan. Restoration work has

been stop-and-go as funding for the various stages became available or disappeared despite being awarded a grant. “It’s been a long hike,” Collins said. The district’s board of trustees approved an agreement with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to do the project, and it is just waiting for the funding to come through. If it does, work would begin sometime next fall, Collins said. The conservation district is paying for its portion of the grant with previous land acquisitions, and the Army Corp is providing technical expertise and the $4 million needed to do the work.

Thorsen wants to improve disclosure to county taxpayers • TREASURER Continued from page B1 Treasurer Bill LeFew, who has served since 1997, is not seeking re-election, citing the growing workload of his Harvard insurance company. Thorsen said he believes the treasurer’s office needs to improve how it accounts for tax receipts and the timeliness of how they are delivered to local governments. He also wants to improve disclosure to taxpayers. “It is my belief that the public can be better informed as to where their tax dollars

go, and the general fiscal health of all units of government,” Thorsen said. He has an MBA from Northern Illinois University and is vice president of FirstMerit Bank in Union. The other contested GOP primary race is that of sheriff, with Undersheriff Andrew Zinke running against former Des Plaines Police Cmdr. Bill Prim. The winner could face a November challenger in independent candidate and former sheriff’s deputy Jim Harrison. Sheriff Keith Nygren is not seeking re-election.

McHenry County Board member Nick Provenzano announced his candidacy Wednesday for county clerk, the day after six-term incumbent Katherine Schultz announced she would not seek a seventh term. That primary race is sure to become contested as well. The only countywide race in which the incumbent is running is the regional superintendent of schools, which is held by Leslie Schermerhorn. A contested primary is unlikely, given the long list of credentials required by state law to hold the office.

Concern for commenters: pollutants • CONTRACT Continued from page B1 needs approval from. It already received the go-ahead from U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. Some of the delay has been caused by commenters who raised concerns that possible pollutants buried in the sediment would be released into the water with the dredging process. One person with concerns is Kathy Hunt, who represents the Sunrise Ridge Estates Homeowners Association. “Personally whatever is on the bottom of that lake I would not want ‘dumped’ in my backyard,” she said in an email. She also voiced concerns about the costs the project

“Personally whatever is on the bottom of that lake I would not want ‘dumped’ in my backyard.” Kathy Hunt Sunrise Ridge Estates Homeowners Association representative has already racked up – more than a million in engineering, design and getting it through the permitting process – before the project has gained approval. The association disputes these claims, citing multiple testings, and the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency’s public notice said the project would not cause any increases in pollutants except for some suspended solids near the dredging site. Some directors raised con-

cerns about what would happen in the “unlikely” instance something does happen, and so the association decided to include three years’ worth of contractor pollution liability insurance for $13,500, Hilton said. Dredging would take a whole season, so the association hopes to build the sediment drying facility this fall, Stowe said. If it doesn’t get the permit in time, the facility then would have to be built next year and the dredging couldn’t happen until 2015. Because the construction can’t move forward until the permit is in hand, the proposed contract becomes null and void with no money owed on either side if the permit is not received, Hilton said. The bid price is also good for 180 days under amendments that will also be voted on Saturday.

Sports editor: Jon Styf • jstyf@shawmedia.com HUNT FOR RED NOVEMBER

Staying calm before the storm By JEFF ARNOLD jarnold@shawmedia.com

H Don Lansu – for Shaw Media

Huntley offensive line coach Chris Babyar (left) and head coach John Hart draw up the final details for the line before Friday’s game against Bartlett, which was postponed a day by inclement weather.

BEARS INSIDER Hub Arkush

Williams right choice in middle Although there have been no official proclamations made by Bears coach Marc Trestman yet, it does seem it will be the veteran D.J. Williams who gets the start at middle linebacker in the opener against the Cincinnati Bengals. Before we get the why of the decision, let’s take a look at the wisdom. Speaking after Thursday’s practice, Lance Briggs, who has taken over the D.J. Williams leadership of the defense from the last man in the middle, Brian Urlacher, said he didn’t see why Williams wouldn’t be able to handle the job. “I did it. Brian’s done it. Two years ago, I hurt my knee in I think the fourth or fifth practice and missed the whole preseason. My first game was against Atlanta. We came out, we played well and beat Atlanta pretty bad. I had a few extra loafs that game, more than I probably usually did, but technique-wise, I was fine.” I’m sure Briggs knows what he’s talking about, but the obvious difference here is Briggs was an eight-year veteran of Lovie Smith’s scheme. Williams has never played for the Bears, played this scheme or played for defensive coordinator Mel Tucker. Still, it appears the Bears will prefer to go with Williams rather than rookie Jon Bostic, although Briggs felt the need to explain why. “Let’s clarify this. When we opened camp, D.J. Williams was our starting middle linebacker. James Anderson was our starting [strongside] and Lance Briggs our starting [weakside]. D.J. Williams got injured, which in turn gave an opportunity for Jon Bostic to not only showcase his skills but to learn. He got a chance to run with the ones. Now, D.J. Williams is back from injury and D.J. Williams is our starting [middle]. The good thing about Bostic is, whether he’s ready or he’s not ready, he doesn’t have to be right now. When the coaches decide Jon’s going to be in, he’ll be in. Until then, we have very capable linebackers.” While it’s safe to assume Briggs knows exactly what he’s saying, he did backtrack a bit, perhaps realizing there hasn’t been an official announcement yet. “Since we have a new group, D.J. has missed some of that. It’s just about getting yourself back into the groove. I’m not sure how much he’s gonna play or how it’s gonna work out and stuff like that, but he’s a professional.”

UNTLEY – Outside of the steady cadence of the clickclacking of cleats on the cement path that leads from a fourstall garage to the field, Ricky Crider’s voice was the only break in an otherwise silent walk. Senior defensive end Brandon Dranka headed the line. He looked straight ahead as he kept moving forward on a muggy Saturday afternoon, resting a black sledgehammer on his left shoulder.

Inside the Huntley football program, the hammer is a sign of respect, demonstrating hard work and mental and physical toughness. Coach John Hart brought the notion of the sledgehammer with him from Indianapolis Warren Central when he was hired to change the culture of Huntley football. A sledgehammer has always signified a blue collar mentality to Hart, who has constantly preached to his teams over the years that success can only come through hard work.

CL SOUTH 2, JACOBS 0

Gators have answers South wins opener in FVC Valley By MAUREEN LYNCH sportsdesk@nwherald.com ALGONQUIN – As soon as Jacobs’ volleyball team closed the block on the outside of the net, Crystal Lake South junior setter Cassy Sivesind knew Thursday could belong to middle hitter Nicole Slimko. Sivesind, South’s junior setter, wanted to get Slimko and fellow middle Emma Burkle involved early anyway. Moving away from the block that initially slowed South outside hitter Carly Nolan, Sivesind fed Slimko for a powerful kill near the outset of the Gators’ Fox Valley Conference Valley Division match against the Golden Eagles. The shot set the tone for Slimko, who worked to get the Gators four of their Game 1 points and eventually a 25-18, 25-16 victory to open the division season. “I was really determined,” Sivesind said. “[Jacobs has] big outsides, so it was hard, but we picked it up and got them going.” “We wanted to establish the middle early,” said Slimko, who finished with six kills and five blocks. “It just opens up a lot [of options].” Options are not something the Gators lack. In addition to getting the middles involved, Sivesind hit senior outside hitter Avalon Nero (four kills) for two shots before setting Nolan high to give her a chance to get around Jacobs blockers Katie Mahoney, Mackenzie Traub and Bridget Wallenberger. Nolan knocked down two kills to make it 24-16 before Jacobs started to believe. Mahoney (match-high seven kills) terminated and South committed a hitting error to make it 24-18 and bring Jacobs’ student section alive. Sivesind ended the first game with a block, but not before the Eagles started to feel as though they belonged.

College football: Wake Forest at Boston College, 7 p.m., ESPN2 Wake Forest (1-0) and Boston College (1-0), with first-year Eagles coach Steve Addazio, square off in an Atlantic Coast Conference game.

For some reason, Ryan Seacrest was at Thursday night’s NFL Kickoff game. When he was introduced, however, he was booed at Mile High Stadium.

The kickoff of Thursday’s NFL game was delayed by lightning, marking two straight NFL games (think Super Bowl) that included delays. Things more annoying than delayed games: 1. Ryan Seacrest (left, with Miley Cyrus) 2. Fran Drescher’s laugh 3. Printer errors

Noteworthy

Ready to put the hammer down

Saturday roundup: It was hit and miss for local tournaments on Saturday. Johnsburg got its in, Jacobs did not. At Johnsburg, Grayslake Central won the team title with 25.5 points, followed by Woodstock (19), McHenry (18), Johnsburg (13.5), Larkin (10.5), Berwyn Morton (8.5) Waukegan (1) and Jefferson (0). Fedmasu won the championship at No. 1 singles with a close match against the Warriors’ Brittany Goebel, 6-4, 6-7, 10-7, in the finals. Lauren Goebel won at No. 2 singles for McHenry. Jacobs coach Jon Betts said they waited until about 10 a.m. and were still getting lightning strikes, so the coaches elected to cancel the invitational. These Saturday events are particularly important for the top players. With a full Fox Valley Conference dual schedule, Saturday is one of the few chances to face opponents from out of the area. This could be particularly important for seeding at state. Looking ahead: Hampshire’s Hannah Hougland improved her chances for a better sectional seed with an early season win against Larkin’s Meryl Hansana on Aug. 28.

• HUNTLEY Continued from page C1 The hammer – which resembles any other of its kind with the exception of the black paint job – is awarded each week to the player who best exemplifies hard work through his play on the field. The player who claims ownership of the hammer the most times by the end of the season will keep it as a memento of their high school football career. To Dranka, the keepsake is enough of an incentive to set the tone for Huntley’s hard-hitting defense. “That’s my goal this year – to get the hammer and make the biggest plays and be that guy,” Dranka said. “That’s a huge thing for me.” As Dranka walked, his teammates followed behind in silence, their gazes locked on the field in front of them. After two weeks of intense practices and a postponed season-opener the night before, Hart would finally get an idea of where his team stood. As always, attitude mattered. “Let’s go, fellas,” Crider, Huntley’s running backs coach, said Saturday afternoon. “Every down, every play has to be your best.” As more players passed him on their way to the back of the end zone where Huntley played lined up shouder to shoulder, Crider repeated the mantra. “Every down,” Crider said. “Every play.” ••• By Saturday afternoon’s kickoff, nearly 17 hours had passed since players had taken a knee in a dimly lit auxiliary gym after heavy rain and a series of lightning strikes postponed the Red Raiders season opener against Bartlett. Hart had imposed an 11 p.m. curfew during a Friday night team meeting that ended shortly before 8:30 p.m. Hart reminded players to get up the next morning ready to play, to eat a healthy breakfast and to eat a bit of spaghetti to keep their energy up. Before Hart could close the team meeting, defensive lineman Mike Andrews jumped to his feet in the mass of more than 100 players and warned his teammates not to lose focus. Last season, Huntley had played only once on a Saturday afternoon – dropping a lopsided 41-14 road loss to Cary-Grove. The game, which Hart refers to as an embarrassment to everyone from the coaching staff to “the starting quarterback to the 15th-string tackle” remains stuck in the Red Raiders’ craw nearly a year later. Andrews, who didn’t need to remind his teammates of the final result against the Trojans, made sure they also remembered one more thing before they took the field the next day. “This isn’t last year,” Andrews said, wrapping up his impromptu speech. Hart turned to his assistants lined up behind him. “I don’t think I could have written it any better than that,” he said. ••• In the hours leading up to Andrews’ speech, Hart made sure to ensure his players maintained the delicate balance between remaining focused and relaxed. In the past, Hart admits he tried too hard to keep his team’s mind locked in on the task at hand while

waiting to learn if they’d play or not, fueled mainly by his own desire to win. At times, he acknowledges, it was too much. “I think sometimes, that hurt our team,” Hart said. Before the storms hit late Friday afternoon, the Red Raiders had gone about their normal gameday routine. Players dressed in their home jerseys, sat at cafeteria tables with plates of pasta and Italian bread and ate. Some carried on casual conversations while others – like senior linebacker Jordan Kabb – sat quietly with music pounding into headphones. Gameday in Huntley normally follows a strict timetable. Between a time for players to grab a short nap to the time they spend with their teammates eating dinner and watching a series of motivational film clips from a variety of sports movies, everything is done with a purpose. But now, black skies and approaching storms were throwing everything into flux. Hart bounced between meetings with school administrators about if his team would get its season opener in and checking in on his players, taking sips from a coffee cup that rarely leaves the coach’s presence. Inside Huntley freshman coach Brad Aney’s school classroom, first-year offensive line coach Chris Babyar led his first gameday position group meeting. “This is what it’s all about – the lights on outside,” Babyar said. Babyar, a hulking former lineman at Illinois and then in the NFL with the Bills and Broncos had previously worked as an assistant at his high school alma mater, Lake Park. More recently, he had founded Red Zone Blocking Clinics, a business focused on teaching linemen proper techniques. As Babyar spoke and drew up blocking schemes on a dry erase board, senior Darren Erath remained locked in on each diagram, nodded his head in agreement. A three-year starter, Erath understands his assignments and is now charged with bringing along his younger teammates – many of whom shape the Red Raiders’ offensive line. But for Babyar, making sure his linemen stuck to the game plan was priority one. But he also wanted them to make sure they knew he understood what they were feeling. “This is why I came back – Friday nights and to work with this group,” Babyar told the roomful of linemen. “We’re going to be the tightest group on the field. I believe in you guys.” ••• The laptop in the corner of offensive coordinator Mike Slattery’s office remained locked on a radar map, showing a big blob of orange and red moving slowly throughout greater Chicago. As players milled about in the adjacent locker room trying to stay loose, Hart’s assistants passed the time in Slattery’s office, seated on a leather couch and love seat. They tracked the weather, doing their best to predict when they’d be able to get on the field. They cracked jokes, triggering assistant coach Joel Popenfoose’s infectious laughter, using humor to break the tension of their

uncertain game night. They compared gameday shoes – all of which had been purchased for the new season. Slattery was mocked for his choice of footwear, a black pair of Under Armour cleats with a glimmering patch of red outlining the toes. Like the players, it was important coaches found a way to stay loose. “Are those even men’s shoes?” someone asked, telling Slattery his shoes looked like the slippers Dorothy wore in “The Wizard of Oz.” Coaches monitored players, who Hart could tell were growing antsy inside the locker room. Hart, sensing his team’s restlessness, radioed athletic director Michelle Jakubowski, asking if he could take the team into the school’s air-conditioned performing arts center, where they would be more relaxed, listen to music or keep busy on their cell phones. If the game was going to be played, it wouldn’t be for at least an hour after the scheduled kickoff time of 7:15. They could relax and then an hour before the game would start, Hart would reel his team back in and get them ready to play. Mother Nature saw to it that never happened. When he sent his team home for the night, Hart wasn’t worried about players losing focus. Not after the way they had prepared and certainly not after what Jacobs said during the meeting. Erath, one of Huntley’s 13 Division Commanders, wasn’t worried, either. “Nothing has changed – it’s still the same game we were going to play,” Erath said Friday night. “We’re just going to play it tomorrow. Obviously, there was the Cary thing last year. But it’s not going to be the same this year. Everyone’s going to be ready.” ••• Before his players entered the field for pregame warmups with AC-DC’s “Hells Bells” bellowing from the stadium speakers on Saturday, Hart gave his team one final instruction. “Stay focused, stay into football,” Hart said. “Be thinking about football.” Over the next two hours, the Red Raiders put their game plan into action. Despite the offense struggling to finish drives, the defense – led by Dranka and defensive end Marcus Wright – kept Bartlett from every taking charge in Huntley’s 23-12 victory. For his efforts, Wright was awarded the hammer and will lead Huntley onto the field Saturday at Elgin. Although there were mistakes – mostly self-imposed – Hart was impressed that his players were able to play through obstacles to capture their first win of the season. Afterward, he praised nearly every aspect of his team’s play, telling his players that as solid as the performance was, that it wasn’t anywhere close to the level where the Red Raiders would be at by the end of the regular season. But for starters, it was good enough to win. “I don’t think I’ve had that happen when there’s been that big of a distraction and it not affect our level of intensity or our level of play,” Hart said. “I was really impressed with how mature they were in how they handled everything. That’s a sign of character.”

South keeps Jacobs at arm’s length • VOLLEYBALL Continued from page C1 “We had nothing to lose,” said Jacobs libero Kassie Kasper, who finished with nine digs. “We were going to play like we were winning the whole time and give it all we had. That’s what we talked about all week.” Slimko and Sivesind combined for a block in Game 2 that put South ahead 4-0. Jacobs (21, 0-1) took advantage of a few South serving errors and a tap kill from Allie Campbell (four kills) to pull within three, 8-5, but Nolan and Burkle both terminated to make it 10-5. Jacobs never got within four points again. A sequence of kills from Nolan, Nero and Slimko, and an ace from defensive specialist Tori Falbo (10 digs, four aces) put South up 18-9. Slimko and Burkle had back-to-back kills to finish the match. “We don’t have a shortage of talent,” South coach Jorie Fontana said. “So just to have the confidence to go elsewhere and come back will help our team grow further down the road.”

GIRLS VOLLEYBALL: HUNTLEY 2, PRAIRIE RIDGE 1

Red Raiders hold off Wolves in FVC Valley Sophomore Erb serves ace to end thrilling match By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO mmontemurro@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – Huntley sophomore middle blocker Erin Erb stood behind the service line and took a deep breath. With the Red Raiders clinging to a 24-22 lead in Game 3 against Prai-

rie Ridge, Erb tried to block out the crowd and focus on the moment. Erb’s ace gave the Red Raiders a 2515, 22-25, 25-22 Fox Valley Conference Valley Division win Thursday. Erb said “a thousand things” ran through her head as she cleared her mind, though she wasn’t trying to deliver an ace in that situation. “ ‘Alright, I’m going to get a high toss and focus on what coach [Karen Liss] told me and just get it in,’ ” Erb recalled. The Red Raiders (5-2 overall, 1-0 FVC Valley) seemed headed toward a quick win after winning the first game and leading 14-8 in Game 2. However, Prairie Ridge (0-3, 0-1)

started to find a rhythm offensively. The Wolves abandoned the 6-2 system after their Game 1 loss and with senior setter Taylor Otto running the offense in the 5-1, Prairie Ridge challenged Huntley’s defense. Tied at 22 in the second game, kills by Aubree Eggers and Charli Beam and an unforced error from Huntley gave Prairie Ridge the win to force a third game. Beam’s seven kills led the Wolves while Kennedy McNeil added six kills. “We’re taking baby steps, little by little we’re trying to do more things right, less things wrong,” Wolves coach Stefanie Otto said. “We’re not there yet.”

Despite failing to hold off the Wolves in Game 2, Huntley never lost total control of the match. Even when they fell behind, 15-12, in the third game, the Red Raiders battled back. They relied on a diverse attack, which featured four players finishing with at least four kills apiece. Senior outside hitter Emily Westermeyer tallied a match-high eight kills while senior outside hitter Alex Kisten and Erb each had five and six kills, respectively. Liss’ message to the Red Raiders between Games 2 and 3: Minimize the errors. “I told them we’ve been in this situation and we shouldn’t have

to be a comeback team,” Liss said. “We know we can come back, we shouldn’t have to. It’s about getting control and keeping control.” Huntley’s aggressiveness at the service line posed a problem all match for Prairie Ridge. The Red Raiders had eight aces, including four from freshman Alyson Dion. Serve-receive has been a weakness to start the season and the Wolves’ struggles in key situations doomed them again. “That’s that mental toughness we have to start working for and developing that,” Otto said. “We have to work on being stronger in those pressure situations.”

NORTHWEST HERALD FOOTBALL GAME OF THE WEEK

Lakes (0-1) at Woodstock North (0-1)

CL South scouting report Who’s gonna score? The Gators’ offense did not produce any points last week against Marian Central. The offense has a lot of returning starters but seemed out of sync and the plays a little slow to develop. QB Austin Rogers, RBs Brandon LaPak and Chris Ivers and that huge offensive line have to get the running game going if they want to win. Throwing over the middle more might help their passing game. Defending the Tigers: The good news for South is that it probably saw one of the best offenses in the area in Week 1. The bad news is that Central will spread the field just like Marian did. The Gators will need to get set quickly on defense because the Tigers get to the line in a hurry. Substitutions will be tough and conditioning will show through. Central is missing two starting RBs for this game and that could help South.

CL South (0-1) at CL Central (1-0) 7:15 p.m. Friday McHenryCountySports.com’s Lester Johnson breaks down the game:

Crystal Lake Central’s Kyle Lavand looks for a receiver against Hyde Park in a game last season. Lavand is stronger and faster this season after a rigid offseason workout program.

CL SOUTH AT CL CENTRAL, 7:15 P.M. FRIDAY, McHENRYCOUNTYSPORTS.COM

South wary of improved CL Central QB Lavand By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com Crystal Lake South football coach Chuck Ahsmann was impressed with Crystal Lake Central quarterback Kyle Lavand’s performance against Grant last week. “He reminds me a little bit of [former South quarterback] Drew [Ormseth],” Ahsmann said. “It’s the way he can throw and run. Just when you think you have him corralled, he gets away.” Being mentioned as having qualities like South’s former do-it-all quarterback, the 2010 Northwest Herald Player of the Year, is high praise. Lavand, a senior and Kyle Lavand second-year starter, has put in the offseason work to improve. Lavand and the Tigers (1-0) host South (0-1) in a 7:15 p.m. nonconference game Friday at Owen Metcalf Field. Central is leaning on Lavand to engineer its fast-break offense that wants to run a play every 12 seconds. The Tigers hope to dictate the pace, tire defenses faster and minimize how defenses can adjust through the quick tempo. “I love it. It’s so fun to run, spreading them out,” Lavand said. “You can pick apart and read the defenses. It’s fun with the high-tempo when you’re wearing them down.” Lavand (6-foot, 190 pounds) helped the Tigers to a 29-15 victory in their opener, throwing for 147 yards and running for 59. He completed 8 of 14 passes and threw one interception, along with one touchdown to wide receiver Matt Tegtmeier, who turned a short hitch into a 47-yard score. “He was already an athletic kid, but he’s gotten a lot quicker and more athletic,” Tegtmeier said. “He’s a lot smarter with the ball. He throws balls where they need to be and it’s easy for us to make plays.” Lavand spoke with Minnesota quarterback Chris Streveler, a Marian Central graduate who worked with former NFL quarterback Jeff Christensen at his Throw It Deep Academy. Three or four times a week, for four months, Lavand attended Christensen’s camps and honed his footwork and throwing motion.

in Crystal Lake. He also lifted and added 15 pounds. “I definitely wanted to put on good weight and improve my quickness and speed,” Lavand said. “I wanted to get more arm strength and accuracy. And just become a better leader for everyone.” Central coach Matt Fralick says the difference is quite evident. Lavand dropped his 40-yard dash time from 4.9 to 4.68 seconds and made the Tigers’ 1,000-pound club (combine lifts of bench press, squat and dead lifts). “Kyle, his father [Ken] and I sat down and talked about what he needed to do to play college football,” Fralick said. “The biggest thing in my opinion was to get faster and stronger. He already had a very good, accurate arm, but I felt he needed to become more of a running threat. He never misses a day [training] and leads through example, as he did in the previous offseason as well.” Fralick admires Lavand’s commitment and feels he will be successful in whatever he does later in life. “He’s a team-first player and leader off the field,” Fralick said. “He doesn’t get rattled by adversity, he doesn’t get too up or down, he just moves on to the next play.” The Central-South rivalry was renewed two years ago and the Gators have had the best of it with 9-0 and 16-6 victories. The Tigers will be at a disadvantage with running backs Ryan Williams and Connor Hines both out of this game after being ejected late in the game against Grant. South had its own problems in its opener, a 28-2 loss to Marian Central. The Gators did not advance inside the Hurricanes’ 20-yard line and allowed two long touchdown passes. “We did some things really well, we just couldn’t hit a big play that could have turned the tide in the game,” Ahsmann said. “If we have that opportunity, we have to hit it, that’s kind of the key.” Ahsmann thought the big pass plays against his defense were uncharacteristic of the way the Gators have played. “We have to make Central drive the field, it’s hard for anyone to drive the field without making mistakes,” Ahsmann said.

CL Central scouting report Running the ‘fast-break’ offense: The Tigers’ goal is to run a play every 12 seconds, as they spread the field in the shotgun most of the time (they run some I-formation). Marian had a lot of success running and passing against South last week by spreading the field. Central likes to spread you out and run, but that may be harder this week without starting RBs Ryan Williams and Connor Hines. They will not play after being suspended one game. QB Kyle Lavand and the offensive line need a strong game to win. There should be opportunities for the passing game. Stopping South: Preventing big plays will make South have to grind out a win. The Tigers may not be scared of the Gators’ offense but should avoid being overconfident. South got shut out in Week 1 last year and then beat Central, 16-6, in Week 2. Central will miss Hines at LB. They need the other LBs and the defensive line to win the line of scrimmage, and stuff the run. Final word This is an old-school crosstown rivalry that usually doesn’t see a lot of points. Special teams could be huge, and turnovers will help decide a winner. Central fumbled four times last week but recovered them all. South had three turnovers. Conditioning could play a part with the Tigers’ high-tempo offense. The Gators will want redemption after last week.

U.S. OPEN

AMERICAN LEAGUE

2012 champ Murray upset in quarterfinals By HOWARD FENDRICH The Associated Press NEW YORK – The earliest real signs of trouble for Andy Murray came in the 10th game of his U.S. Open quarterfinal. For 22 points stretched over 15 excruciating minutes Thursday, Murray’s body language was as poor as his play. When the 2012 champion pushed a simple forehand into the net, he smacked his palm against his forehead, once, twice, three times. When he left a similarly routine forehand too low, he mocked his footwork by pressing one shoe atop the other. When he sailed a later forehand long, he rolled his eyes and muttered. When he delivered his second double-fault, he swiped the ground with his racket.

Andy Murray shouts Thursday during a break between sets of his loss to Stanislas Wawrinka during the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open in New York. And when he rushed yet another forehand on break point No. 6 of that key game – the ball drifting long to cede a set to his far-less-accom-

plished opponent, ninth-seeded Stanislas Wawrinka – Murray cracked his racket on the court. Not satisfied, he trudged to his changeover chair and whacked the racket again, mangling the frame. Trying to defend a Grand Slam title for the first time, and not quite two months removed from his historic Wimbledon championship, Murray bowed out quickly, if not quietly, at Flushing Meadows, losing, 6-4, 6-3, 6-2, to Wawrinka in a result that was surprising both because of who won and by how much. “I have had a good run the last couple of years,” said the third-seeded Murray, who shook his hands in front of his face and screamed after dropping the second set. “It’s a shame I had to play a bad match today.”

The first Grand Slam semifinal of Wawrinka’s career, in his 35th appearance, will come Saturday against No. 1 Novak Djokovic, the 2011 U.S. Open champion. Djokovic overcame a third-set lull and beat 21st-seeded Mikhail Youzhny of Russia, 6-3, 6-2, 3-6, 6-0, on Thursday night to reach the semifinals in New York for the seventh year in a row. It’s also the 14th consecutive Grand Slam tournament where Djokovic is in the semifinals, a 3½-year streak. The other semifinal is No. 2 Rafael Nadal against No. 8 Richard Gasquet. “In tennis, as you know, if (you) are not Roger or Rafa and Djokovic or Andy now, you don’t win so many tournaments,” Wawrinka said, “and you always lose.” Not on this day.

8SPORTS SHORTS NBA to install motion cameras in every arena The NBA announced Thursday it will install motion-tracking cameras in every arena this season to provide coaches, players and fans reams of data aimed at pulling back the curtain on what it takes to succeed at basketball’s highest level. The NBA has partnered with STATS on the SportVU cameras, and the relationship has grown from a single arena during the 2009 NBA Finals into a leaguewide initiative that will be up and ready for the start of this season. The technology can monitor every move a player makes on the court, gauge how tired he is and can even keep an eye on the job referees are doing.

Auriemma will return to coach U.S. women’s team Geno Auriemma will return to coach the U.S. women’s basketball team at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics, a person with knowledge of the decision told The Associated Press. USA Basketball will discuss the move at a news conference Friday in Connecticut. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity Thursday because the appointment of the Connecticut coach has not been announced. Auriemma’s team cruised through the 2012 London Games, winning by an average of 34 points, including an 86-50 rout of France for the title. – Wire reports

Restaurant group ends relationship with Braun MILWAUKEE – A restaurant group is ending its ties with suspended Brewers slugger Ryan Braun. SURG Restaurant Group said in a statement Thursday it will change the name of the 8-Twelve MVP Bar & Grill in the Milwaukee suburb of Brookfield. “Eight” is Braun’s jersey number, while “twelve” refers to the number worn by quarterback Aaron Rodgers with the Green Bay Packers. Major League Baseball suspended Braun for the rest of the season in July for doping. Braun and Rodgers were friends and business associates, but Rodgers said during training camp he felt duped by Braun’s previously strong denial of doping accusations. Restaurant group co-owner Michael Polaski said he appreciated the restaurant’s relationship with Braun and wished the slugger success. Braun in the same statement said he supported the decision.

Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner throws a touchdown pass Saturday against Central Michigan in Ann Arbor, Mich.

NO. 14 NOTRE DAME AT NO. 17 MICHIGAN, 7 P.M. SATURDAY, ESPN

Opposing QBs in new roles LaMOND POPE Sun-Times Media Group SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Tommy Rees and Devin Gardner impacted last year’s Notre Dame-Michigan game – only in different roles than the two quarterbacks will have Saturday. Rees came off the bench to aid Notre Dame in its 13-6 victory against the Wolverines. He had 115 passing yards and rushed for a touchdown in the win. Gardner was a wide receiver at the time for Michigan. He finished with three catches for a team-high 40 yards. Both are now starting quarterbacks for one of the marquee games of the weekend. No. 14 Notre Dame plays at No. 17 Michigan at 7 p.m. at Michigan Stadium. “It’s the biggest stage in college football,” Gardner told reporters in Ann Arbor, Mich., this week. “This is what every quarterback dreams of: being on a big stage and being able to perform like this.” Gardner played in 13 games last year, seeing time at wide receiver and quarterback. He made nine starts, five at wide receiver and four at quarterback. Gardner takes over at quarterback from Denard Robinson. “Robinson was a spectacular player. He had a lot of attributes that we had to prepare for. Gardner is a pretty good passer and he’s very mobile,” Notre Dame defensive end Stephon Tuitt said. “He can get out the pocket and throw the ball very far.” Gardner went 10 for 15 for 162 yards and one touchdown in the opener against Central Michigan. He rushed for

Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly talks with quarterback Tommy Rees during a timeout in the first half Saturday against Temple in South Bend, Ind. 52 yards. “I felt like I was pretty efficient,” Gardner said. “I felt like I performed on third down, which is big for us.” Gardner also threw two interceptions. “That’s what it comes down to,” Gardner said, “not turning it over.” Rees had a clean game from that standpoint in Notre Dame’s 28-6 victory against Temple. He was 16 of 23 for 346 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions.

“There’s some room to improve,” Rees said. “There are a couple of throws I wished I had back, a couple of plays I left some opportunities out there. But I thought the offense did a good job of going out there and executing. We’re moving forward and continuing to get better.” Rees was the starter the last time the Irish played at Michigan Stadium in 2011. He was 27 of 39 for 315 yards and two touchdowns in the 35-31 loss. He also had two interceptions. “The moment is not quite as large as it was two years ago [for Rees],” Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said Thursday. “Probably two years ago, he was operating on instinct a little bit and now he’s operating a little bit more on just a clear understanding of everything. A lot more comfortable. When I say instinct, he was reacting. “I think you’re going to see somebody that’s so much more proactive in the game. He’s going to see it before it happens. He did a very good job in that game, he’ll do a better job of taking care of the football. You’ve got a mature guy, and I think you’ll see that Saturday.” Notes: Running back Will Mahone and wide receiver DaVaris Daniels are healthy and cleared to play Saturday for the Irish. Mahone missed the opener because of a high ankle sprain. Daniels had three catches for 69 yards and two touchdowns against the Owls. He left the game in the second quarter because of a groin injury and did not return. … Third-string quarterback Malik Zaire will miss his second straight game because of mononucleosis.

MLB ROUNDUP

Orioles hit 3 HRs, extend White Sox’s losing streak to 7 The ASSOCIATED PRESS BALTIMORE – Miguel Gonzalez was desperate for a win. So were the Baltimore Orioles. Both got what they needed against the skidding White Sox. Gonzalez allowed one run over seven innings, and Baltimore got solo home runs from Adam Jones, J.J. Hardy and Brian Roberts in a 3-1 victory

Thursday night. The Orioles were coming off a 3-6 road trip that left them four games off the pace in the AL wild-card race. Dayan Viciedo had two hits for the Sox, who have dropped seven straight as they stagger to the conclusion of a losing season. The Sox are an AL-worst 24-49 on the road and 32-48 in games decided by one or two runs. “We’ve played that type of game a lot this year and just

couldn’t score enough runs to win,” said Paul Konerko, who went 0 for 4. “We try not to think about how other games have gone, but the end result is you can lump this in with the rest of them.” Jose Quintana (9-7) allowed seven hits in seven innings, but three of them were homers. The right-hander had allowed only four home runs in his previous 10 starts.

At New York, Stephen Drew hit a tying single off Mariano Rivera with two outs in the ninth inning, then Shane Victorino lined a go-ahead single in the 10th that sent Boston past New York. Down to their last strike against Rivera, the Red Sox rallied in the opener of a fourgame series loaded with playoff implications.

RAVENS AT BRONCOS

Manning throws 5 TD passes By PAT GRAHAM The Associated Press

Lathan Goumas – lgoumas@shawmedia.com

Bears quarterback Jay Cutler signs autographs during training camp July 26 in Bourbonnais. A kinder, gentler Cutler might not be good for the Bears.

Cutler needs to keep bristly side It might be better if you sit down for this. On Thursday, Jay Cutler prefaced his answer to a reporter’s question with, “Good point.’’ This was groundbreaking stuff in that he generally sees the media as pointless. I don’t think I’m speaking out of turn here, though it’s possible Jay has a profound love of reporters he has been hiding lo these many years. Cutler was gracious at his weekly press gathering at Halas Hall, and I know what Bears fans are thinking: This can only be good news. For as long as he has been in Chicago, people have wanted him to change. Stop sulking, they’ve told him. Stop throwing off your back foot. Stop making bad decisions. Smile more. Let’s not be hasty. I look at this a little differently than most, the way a selfish columnist would, which is to say that I look at Cutler as just about the greatest thing ever. He is the fit of pique that just keeps giving. The frowns, the outbursts at teammates, the lack of eye contact in news conferences … you couldn’t make this guy up. And married to his polar opposite, reality star Kristin Cavallari? Oh, those crazy, wonderful kids at Match.com. I would like to see Cutler win a championship and continue to be his fiery, difficult self. I don’t necessarily think those two things are mutually exclusive, though the evidence from his seven-year career does seem to be leaning in the direction of “they absolutely are mutually exclusive.’’ But it worries me when new coach Marc Trestman describes Cutler as being “evenkeeled” during training camp, as he did

VIEWS Rick Morrissey Thursday. This is not good for anybody, but specifically not good for me. The Bears open their season Sunday at home against the Bengals, and it would not be an overstatement to say that everything is riding on Cutler’s shoulders, which already sport humongous chips. He needs to be good for the Bears to be good. With his contract up after this season, he needs to be good or he is as good as gone. He has had his share of dustups in the past, though the one that received the most attention last season came when he screamed at and bumped tackle J’Marcus Webb for the sin of playing like J’Marcus Webb during a game against the Packers. The Webb bump was good for about three columns last season. Trestman, a calm sort, doesn’t seem worried about Jay’s bristly side, which resembles a porcupine under attack. “The thing with our players – and I’ve said it to them – we know they’re working hard,” he said. “We know they’re committed to the game. We know that. I think his demeanor, because he’s the quarterback, is critically important. “I think there are going to be moments like that. I think that’s just part of who he is. I’m not going to take that away from him. From my standpoint, I don’t think you’re going to

see somebody firing back. I’m going to let him wear himself out, get it off his chest, go back and play the next play. “At the end of the day, I know when a player gets that way, that’s not really who he is.” Actually, that really is who Cutler is, but, again, this could be the needy columnist in me talking. If Trestman’s ability to put together a game plan is as good as advertised, then Cutler needs to get his decision-making skills, not his temper, under control. If tackle Jermon Bushrod and tight end Martellus Bennett are as good as they have been in the past, then Cutler doesn’t need to be a risk-taker. But it sure would be a lot less fun to watch if he goes all robotic on us. Or worse, if he gets perky. Lots of people would like to soften his harder edges. Lots of people would like him to be nice, approachable, engaging and kind to strangers. But that’s not him. He’s the guy with the black hat, which is perfectly OK in Chicago as long as he wins. Jim McMahon came to town with a beer and an unpleasant attitude that was charming because the Bears won. The only right way for this to end is on Cutler’s terms, whatever they may be, but involving scorched earth in some way. Not with a personality change, but with the same old Jay doing his thing. With a snarl on his face. • Rick Morrissey is a sports columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times who can be reached at rmorrissey@suntimes.com.

REDSKINS

N.Y. tribe to launch radio ad against Redskins The ASSOCIATED PRESS ALBANY, N.Y. – An American Indian tribe in upstate New York said Thursday it will launch a radio ad campaign pressing for the Washington Redskins to shed a name often criticized as offensive. The Oneida Indian Nation said the first ad will run on radio stations in Washington before the team hosts the Philadelphia Eagles in its season opener Monday night. In the ad, Oneida Nation representative Ray Halbritter says NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell should “stand up to big-

otry” by denouncing “the racial slur” in the team’s name. “We do not deserve to be called redskins,” the Oneida leader says in the ad. “We deserve to be treated as what we are – Americans.” The radio ad said Goodell had rightly been critical this summer after an Eagles wide receiver was caught on video making a racial slur against African-Americans. The ads launch as the Washington Redskins this year face a fresh barrage of criticism over their nickname, with local leaders and pundits calling for a name change. In May, 10 members of Congress

sent letters to Redskins owner Dan Snyder and Goodell urging the team to change the name. Snyder has vowed to never change the name. League spokesman Brian McCarthy, in an email to The Associated Press, said they “respect that reasonable people may have differing views.” “The name from its origin has always intended to be positive and has always been used by the team in a highly respectful manner,” McCarthy wrote. There was no immediate response from the Redskins.

The Oneidas have been vocal opponents of the Redskins nickname – be it for NFL or high school teams. The tribe, which runs a casino and resort in central New York, this year gave $10,000 toward new jerseys to an area high school that changed its nickname from the Redskins to the Hawkeyes. The Oneida said the first ad will run Sunday and Monday on several stations in Washington. Halbritter said fans also are being urged to lobby the NFL in support of the name change at www. changethemascot.org.

Williams plans to study hard after missing preseason • ARKUSH Continued from page C1 After Wednesday’s practice, Williams talked about how he can be ready, having missed the entire preseason. “Mentally, you just know you’re going to have to do a lot of extra film study, a lot of walk throughs and get a lot of reps this week that I missed,” Williams said. “I didn’t get any preseason practices or games so I have to double up on the studying.” Physically, Williams says he’s sure he’s ready to go. “I’ve been out here, I’ve tested it out, threw it in the dirt and ran and pushed off of it, so now it’s in the back of my head and now I’m just playing.” So who will it be, the veteran Williams or the youngster Bostic? Unless Williams has a setback with the calf, it seems almost

1

One significant injury to keep an eye on for the Bengals is the knee of left tackle Andrew Whitworth. Although the Bengals have a capable backup in Anthony Colins, a swing tackle who can play on the left or right, Whitworth is a 2012 Pro Bowler who hasn’t missed a start in four seasons. He is the anchor on the Bengals offensive line, excellent both run blocking and pass protecting. Most importantly, he is Andy Dalton’s blind side protector and figures to be matched up the best part of the day Sunday with Julius Peppers. If Whitworth is unable to go, it’s a huge advantage for the Bears.

2

Assuming D.J. Williams does get the start at “Mike” backer, it will have a ripple effect on the 46 who dress for the Bengals on Sunday. Williams in the defense will free Jon Bostic up for a lot more special teams duty. It could mean Khaseem Greene doesn’t dress if the Bears want an extra defensive back or wide receiver as insurance for the healing Zack Bowman and Earl Bennett.

Because tight end Kyle Adams was brought back after Dante Rosario arrived via trade, Rosario could be the odd man out for Sunday.

certain he’ll get the start. What is the difference between

Bostic and rookies Kyle Long and Jordan Mills? Long and Mills are

currently the best right guard and right tackle on the team. Although Bostic did some nice things in the preseason, he is clearly not yet as good a “Mike” backer as Williams. Bostic’s time will come, that seems almost certain. But it’s not this Sunday. The Cincinnati Bengals are not the Chargers, Raiders or Browns. They’re a playoff team that is favored to win the AFC North with multiple weapons on offense, the likes of which Bostic has never seen. Williams has been around the block a number of times and even at 80 to 90 percent, perhaps even occasionally spelled by Bostic, if he is ready physically, he’s the clear choice to open the season. • Hub Arkush covers the Bears for Shaw Media and HubArkush. com.

DENVER – Peyton Manning threw five touchdown passes – two to his newest target, Wes Welker – to help the Denver Broncos build a 42-24 lead over Super Bowl champion Baltimore midway through the fourth quarter Thursday night in the season opener that started 33 minutes late because of lightning. This marks the seventh time in Manning’s career he has thrown for that many scores in a game. It ties Drew Brees of New Orleans for most in NFL history. The four-time NFL MVP was 22 of 35 for 315 yards. He threw two TD passes each to Welker and tight end Julius Thomas, along with another to Andre Caldwell. Manning found Caldwell for a 28-yard score on the opening drive of the second half and then located Welker for a 5-yard TD moments later. The Welker score was set up when David Bruton blocked a punt by Sam Koch, giving Denver the ball deep in Baltimore territory. Midway through the third quarter, Welker and Manning teamed up again as the Broncos outscored the Ravens 21-0 in the third quarter.

BEARS NOTES

Bengals will test Bears’ new O-line By KEVIN FISHBAIN kfishbain@shawmedia.com LAKE FOREST – Bengals defensive tackle Geno Atkins isn’t considered underrated anymore, especially after signing a five-year, $55 million contract extension Monday with $31 million guaranteed over the first three years of the deal. The Bears’ offense is very aware of Atkins, who was ranked as Pro Football Focus’ top defensive tackle last year, and the rest of the Bengals’ blue-chip defensive line. Atkins had 12½ sacks last year. Defensive end Michael Johnson had 11½ and Carlos Dunlap added six. The three combined for 53 quarterback hits and will face an offensive line with four new faces, including two rookies, in Week 1 on Sunday at Soldier Field. “We sure wish we could play a team that wasn’t quite as good up front, but you know what, it’s a good challenge,” offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer said after Thursday’s practice. “It’s a good opportunity for the guys to see where they are.” “Front seven is definitely the biggest challenge,” Bears quarterback Jay Cutler said. “So we just have to be aware of what’s happening with the front seven and just talk and communicate accordingly and get everything cleared up.” Kromer lauded the way Cutler got rid of the ball quickly in the third preseason game against the Raiders, and he’ll have to do that again with an interior pass rusher like Atkins trying to get in his face. “We’re going to get rid of the ball quick. You don’t really want to give [Atkins] or any of those other guys a lot of time to work into their second moves because they get to the quarterback,” Cutler said. “They get to the quarterback a lot and they show you a lot of different fronts, which makes it more difficult, trying to figure out who’s who. So we’ve got to be on it with our protection game and then on the outside guys have got to be open quickly.” Learning from Raiders: Cutler discussed watching old Raiders tape when Marc Trestman was the offensive coordinator. “We’ve watched Rich Gannon. He slung it around. They had a lot of empty sets, a lot of shifts and motions and quick games. The ball was gone. He was fun to watch. He threw it from about every angle possible. He was very successful under Trest and these guys,” Cutler said. Gannon was the league MVP under Trestman’s watch in 2002. Bengals’ blind-side issues: Cincinnati left tackle Andrew Whitworth (knee) missed practice again Thursday, leaving his status in doubt. Whitworth has not missed a start since 2008, and his replacement, Anthony Collins, hasn’t started at left tackle since 2008. Collins is entering his sixth year with the Bengals and has 18 career starts, but most of his time has come at right tackle. He would be lining up opposite Julius Peppers on Sunday.

“Getaway” 1/2 H

STARRING: Ethan Hawke, Selena Gomez, Jon Voight, Paul Freeman PLOT: Brent Magna must get behind the wheel and follow the orders of a mysterious man to save his kidnapped wife. RATED: PG-13 for intense action, violence and mayhem throughout, some rude gestures and language TIME: 1 hour, 30 minutes VERDICT: Liam Neeson has some atoning to do. Not because of his hell-bent pursuit of vengeance in “Taken” and its sequel, but for the lamentable cottage industry of cheap, imitation thrills those films hath wrought. “Taken” was by no means a groundbreaking achievement. But it was sturdy genre moviemaking, aided by the veteran weight of Neeson. “Getaway,” starring Ethan Hawke, is not that. Its chief tension derives from the question many moviegoers will ask, biting their nails: Is this the worst movie I’ve seen this year? Hawke plays former race car driver Brent Manga, a name that even a cartoon character would be ashamed of, and that translates literally as Brent Great. In our first introduction to Brent, he’s motoring furiously through a European capital in a manic car chase. It brings up an intriguing existential question: Is it still a car chase if we don’t yet know the fleer, the pursuer or particularly care about either of them? It’s an early hint of the overriding trouble with “Getaway”: It tries to put the throttle down before turning the key. We quickly learn Brent’s wife, presumably Mrs. Great, was taken in Sofia, Bulgaria. (The setting is arbitrary, except for its low production costs.) The kidnapper (Jon Voight, mostly only heard and seen as lips on the other end of a phone line) demands Brent drive around Sofia, careening through marketplaces and, under his specific directions, causing various havoc. Brent has little time to deliberate how this will save his wife, and the movie, too, makes scant effort to consider the harm he’s causing. Miraculously, he doesn’t run over anyone despite high-speed maneuvers that would realistically slaughter bystanders like bugs on a windshield. At some point, Selena Gomez gets in the car, first appearing to be a hoodie-clad carjacker, then revealed as another puppet in the mysterious scheme. Her entry to the film is as smooth as a pop star being shot out of a cannon. Cribbing from countless adrenaline-fueled concept films, from “Speed” to any Jason Statham movie you like, “Getaway” (not to be confused with the two “The Getaway” films based on Jim Thompson’s novel) tries to ride its thin concept, hoping the fumes of constant engine revving are intoxicating. Director Courtney Solomon splices together footage from cameras inside the car (from which the kidnapper eyes his pawns) and from exterior stuntmenenabled wide shots. The action (all at nighttime) is messily and crudely filmed. The plot mechanics are often laughable. How, then, to explain the film’s sudden elegance in one (and only one) shot that appears toward the end of the film like a parting of the waters? Suddenly, the frantic cutting and the relentlessly grating score dissipate for a lengthy first-person perspective of a car speeding down a rolling, suburban road, gracefully sliding around traffic at dawn. It’s a diamond that can’t make up for the other 89 minutes of rough. – The

“One Direction: This Is Us” HH STARRING: Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Louis

RATINGS HHHH - Excellent HHH - Recommended HH - Not recommended H - Awful Tomlinson PLOT: A look at Niall, Zayn, Liam, Louis and Harry’s meteoric rise to fame, from their humble hometown beginnings and competing on the X-Factor, to conquering the world and performing at London’s famed O2 Arena. RATED: PG for mild language TIME: 1 hour, 32 minutes VERDICT: Morgan Spurlock is one tricky guy. The documentarian best known for the eye-opening, award-winning “Super Size Me” now makes a persuasive case not for the dangers of fast food but for the dizzying virtues of a British boy band. And “One Direction: This Is Us” comes this close to convincing someone who routinely avoids the song “What Makes You Beautiful” at all costs that this quintet of skinnyjeaned heartthrobs has the coolest, cutest, nicest and most talented musicians in all the land. But I’m on to you, Spurlock. There are holes in your story about five lads who don’t appear to ever drink, smoke, fight, curse or partake in romantic dalliances of any kind. At least, not on screen. Of course, the movie is tailored specifically for One Direction’s uncontrollably ecstatic fan base of more than 14 million Twitter followers. That group consists mainly of tween girls, so a PG rating is a must, but Spurlock paints the band members – Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson – as superhuman, even as the guys humbly insist they’re just average blokes. The meteoric rise of One Direction is a compelling tale of chance. “X Factor” producer-turned-puppetmaster Simon Cowell recounts how, in 2010, he threw together five talented individual contestants on a whim. The newly formed group didn’t win the British incarnation of the show that season, but they garnered a massive fan base that propelled them to unfathomable stardom. They sold out their 2013 arena tour in minutes, according to the documentary. From there, the movie blends concert footage with backstage antics and the tomfoolery that accompanies bus rides and hotel stays. There are a few inspired additional interviews, including a neuroscientist who describes why One Direction fans lose control of their decibel level and tear ducts upon seeing the young men. The guys, who ranged in age from 19 to 21 during the filming, are portrayed as merry pranksters. They pull each other’s pants down on stage and dress in disguises to surprise fans; they make wheelies with golf carts and push each other around in trash bins. To add a bit of emotion, the film hears from the boys’ mothers (the mere sight of these women elicited emotional sighs during an early screening) and follows the five as they take a break from touring to return home. But for the most part, the movie

embraces harmless fun, which can be enjoyable for the audience members, whether they’re 1D fans or not. Most of the singers don’t mind their boy-band designation, but they insist they aren’t the typical commodity. For one thing, they can’t dance, although they faux-try with hilarious results. They also have a little edge, Malik says. They may sport visible tattoos, but watching the boys croon the chart-topping ballad “Little Things” makes that claim one of the more dubious. Some of the guys have made gossip rag headlines for their wild ways, including drunken behavior, but there’s no hint of that here. The absence of certain truths makes the movie feel more like marketing material for superheroes than a comprehensive documentary about human dimension. If One Direction fans end up having inordinately high standards when it comes to love, Spurlock is at least partly to blame. –

“Riddick” H1/2

STARRING: Vin Diesel, Karl Urban, Jordi Molla, Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff PLOT: Left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, Riddick finds himself up against an alien race of predators. Activating an emergency beacon alerts two ships: one carrying a new breed of mercenary, the other captained by a man from Riddick’s past. RATED: R for strong violence, language and some sexual content/nudity TIME: 1 hour, 59 minutes VERDICT: By now, the saga of escaped convict and galactic outlaw Richard Riddick is a well-established sci-fi benchmark. As the substantial lore surrounding Riddick aspires to achieve mythic proportions, expectations also escalate, challenging successive releases to augment the gritty antihero’s legendary status. Succinctly titling the third film “Riddick” would seem to telegraph a determinative evolution of the ongoing narrative, rather than the largely episodic exercise franchise director David Twohy and star-producer Vin Diesel have delivered. Duped into relinquishing the crown of Lord Marshal of the Necromongers by his nemesis Vaako (Karl Urban), an entitlement hard-won in “The Chronicles of Riddick,” the notorious murderer Riddick (Diesel) ends up stranded on another blisteringly inhospitable planet instead of enjoying a return to his home world of Furya, as Vaako led him to expect. Fending off attacks by hyena-like wild canines and battling carnivorous amphibians reminiscent of giant scorpions, Riddick makes it out of the heat-blasted desert to the sanctuary of the adjacent high plains, where he finds refuge in an outpost set up by a network of galactic mercenaries. Relative safety turns out to be unrewarding, however, and with no other way to escape the inhospitable planet, Riddick activates the beacon device that alerts an extensive bounty-hunter network to his location. First to arrive from offworld are Santana (Jordi Molla) and his thuggish cohorts, who collectively possess more brawn than brains. Close behind, Boss Johns (Matt Nable) pilots a better-skilled crew that includes crack sniper Dahl (Katee Sackhoff), the only woman among the testosterone-fueled hunters. Riddick’s intention is to separate one of the spaceships from its crew and flee. Santana, however, is determined to sever Riddick’s head from his body so he can claim the bounty, particularly since it’s doubled if the fugitive is confirmed dead. Vastly outnumbered and out-armed, Riddick has only the weapons he’s improvised with – materials harvested from the local flora and fauna, along with a fierce

native canine he’s managed to semi-domesticate – to fend off the mercenaries and make a break for freedom. Significantly dialing back on “Chronicles’ ” sprawling scale, the latest installment feels tentative even at a flabby 120 minutes, more like a placeholder that barely advances the considerable Riddick mythology. Playing it safe with a script that offers Riddick up as a lone avenging hero, Twohy passes on the opportunity to effectively shade the character’s distinctive dimensionality. Plenty of bone crunching and blood gushing, along with some selective nudity, have boosted the movie’s rating up to an “R,” but lacking the distinctive visual style, robust production design and planet-hopping pace of its predecessor, “Riddick” feels mired in stasis. While “Chronicles” was a full-blown space opera, the current iteration is beset by unremarkable CGI effects and tethered to limited locations. Twohy maintains skillful command of the franchise’s Frank Frazetta–inspired imagery and pulp sci-fi narrative template throughout, but it’s all more deliberate than imaginative. Inevitably setting up another sequel at the movie’s conclusion, Twohy begs the question of where a wanted man with a price on his head who’s exiled from his home planet can really run for sanctuary. Regardless, Riddick has little time or goodwill to waste if the franchise is to manage a satisfying, coherent conclusion. –

“Populaire” HHH

STARRING: Romain Duris, Féodor Atkine, Déborah François PLOT: Set in 1958, Rose is a terrible secretary but a demon typist. Her handsome boss resolves to turn her into the fastest girl in the world. RATED: R for “a scene of sexuality” TIME: 1 hour, 51 minutes VERDICT: “Populaire” is a superbly crafted, finely acted but somewhat shallow retro rom-com about a young French secretary who, with the help of her highly persuasive boss, hammers her way to becoming one of the fastest typists on the planet. This impressive debut feature from writer-director Regis Roinsard is boosted by terrific lead turns from Romain Duris and Deborah Francois (“The Page Turner”), as well as some stunning old-school cinematography from Guillaume Schiffman of “The Artist.” Still, there’s something formulaic and all too overtly crowd-pleasing about this sepia-toned tale of female empowerment and lost love, making for a rather soulless affair. While the love story is meant to fuel much of the action, it’s often overshadowed by the thrill of the training sessions and typing competitions, which Roinsard films as if they were some kind of office combat sport. Cutting between the competing secretaries as they pound out keystrokes and slam back their typewriter carriages, the director and editors Laure Gardette and Sophie Reine endow these sequences with the nail-biting suspense of a finale at Roland Garros, making them the real highlights of the movie. But for all the earnestness with which the filmmakers replicate the muted colors and attitudes of the post-war era, they ultimately fail to say anything truly interesting about either the past or the present, resulting in a work that feels as superficial as it does slick. –

Sister’s fantasy of deceased Eye exams can halt vision loss dad is a far cry from reality Dear Abby: I have a halfsister with whom I share a mother. Her father and my mother were married for almost 10 years. This man, I believe, had some mental issues. He would quiz me about my sexual relations with my boyfriend at the time, wanting details. He would often fly off the handle and argue with my mother for no reason. There are too many other examples to list. Quite frankly, he was a horrible husband and father. This man died two years ago. My half-sister has since immortalized her father into someone he was not. She even tattooed his initials on her wrist. Abby, how is a person supposed to deal with a relative who is living in fantasyland about a parent? His widow has sent her emails telling her the kind of man he really was, but she continues to act as if he was the world’s best father even though he wasn’t. – Knows The Truth Dear Knows The Truth: Either your former stepfather was the greatest father in the world to HER, or your halfsister needs the fantasy she’s clinging to for her emotional well-being. Let her have her fantasy if it comforts her. If she raises the subject of good old dad with you, just tell her you’d prefer not to discuss it.

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips If you do that, you’ll both be happier. Dear Abby: I’m 31 and the mother of three awesome children. At 29, I left my husband of nine years and came out of the closet. I have been in a stable two-year relationship with my girlfriend, and she recently moved in with us. My oldest child has started asking if his friends can come and stay the night on a weekend. I let one child spend the night with him once. My sister asked me if I had told the child’s parent I’m a lesbian living with a partner. When I said no, she got upset and said because we live in a small, religious country town I should inform the child’s parent of my living situation. I can see where she’s coming from, but I don’t feel it’s my responsibility to offer this personal information. We’re hardworking, law-abiding citizens, and I am a loving and protective mother. We aren’t felons who need to “disclose” our personal “crimes.” What do you think? – Proud

Mama In The South Dear Proud Mama: I, too, can see where your sister is com-

ing from, and I don’t like the direction. You are not under any obligation to announce your sexual orientation to anyone. In a small town – religious or not – word gets around quickly on its own. Trust me on that. However, if you are asked directly, you should be honest. Dear Abby: Our daughter was married recently. During the wedding or the reception, someone stole money from the purses of at least two of the bridesmaids. Are the bride’s parents responsible for the loss?

– Mother Of The Bride In Alabama Dear Mother Of The Bride: What happened was unfortunate, and I hope the lesson the bridesmaids learned from this wasn’t an expensive one. Unless you agreed to look after the young women’s belongings, you are not responsible for the loss. They should have left their purses with someone they trusted or secured in a locked room or car. As a gesture of good will, depending upon the state of your finances, you might want to make good on their loss. But you are not required to do so.

Dear Dr. K: Could you explain how diabetes affects vision? Dear Reader: The high blood sugar levels that occur in people with diabetes can have serious consequences throughout the body, including the eyes. Many of my patients with diabetes are most concerned diabetes will rob them of the precious gift of sight. People with diabetes are at greater risk of developing cataracts and glaucoma, and keeping blood sugar under control can reduce your risk of developing them in the first place. But if you develop either of these two conditions, fortunately there are effective treatments. These days, no person with diabetes should go blind from cataracts or glaucoma. However, a third eye problem – diabetic retinopathy – is more likely to cause severe vision loss or blindness. Diabetic retinopathy occurs when abnormal blood sugar levels damage small blood vessels in the retina, the light-sensing area in the back of your eyes. The retina sends visual images to the brain. Diabetic retinopathy be-

gins when the walls of small blood vessels in the retina weaken. They leak fluid into the surrounding tissue, often leaving protein and fat deposits in the retina. The vessel walls also develop tiny bulges or balloons called “microaneurysms” that leak red blood cells into the retina. As the condition progresses, the abnormal vessels begin to close, robbing the retina of its blood supply. Nerve fibers in the retina that are necessary for vision begin to die from poor circulation and lack of oxygen. (I’ve put an illustration of this process on my website.) These changes may not alter your vision. But if fluid leaks into the center of the macula – the part of the retina responsible for sharp, central vision – your sight will be impaired. Swelling of the macula is called macular edema. As retinopathy advances, the damaged retina tries to repair itself by sprouting

new blood vessels. However, these new vessels are very fragile and don’t grow normally; they tend to leak blood and break apart. This can cause a sudden loss of vision. Treatments can help to prevent vision loss, or slow its progression. But there is no cure for diabetic retinopathy. You’ve got to catch it early and stop it from getting worse. You can significantly reduce your risk of eye diseases by keeping your blood sugar at near-normal levels. Controlling your sugar levels also will protect against damage to other parts of your body, including your kidneys, heart and brain. Regular vision testing also is vital. Get a comprehensive dilated eye exam at least once a year. These exams can detect macular edema and diabetic retinopathy in the earliest stages. Prompt treatment can help prevent severe vision loss and blindness.

Chappelle strikes back THINGS

WORTH TALKIN’ ABOUT

Friday, September 6, 2013 • PlanitNorthwest.com/buzz

Dave Chappelle has struck back at Hartford five days after he was heckled at a show and refused to perform his set. According to audio posted on TMZ.com, Chappelle praises an audience in Chicago on Tuesday for being “so much better than Hartford.” He tells the crowd that if North Korea were to drop a bomb on the U.S., he hopes it “lands in Hartford, Conn.” To cheers and laughter, he says he “wouldn’t even go back to Hartford for ... gas.” Chappelle was the headliner Aug. 24 in Hartford at the Funny or Die Presents The Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival, which is touring the country.

Baldwin gets talk show

Arsenio Hall back in late night Did fate decree that Arsenio Hall would return to late night after two decades’ absence? If so, he’s answering that comeback call Monday with the premiere of “The Arsenio Hall Show” (syndicated; check local listings for time and channel). And he’s itching to get going. “You know how certain things make you nervous?” he said recently. “I don’t like to fly, but once I’m on the plane and we’re over the Rockies and I’m watching a movie, I’m fine. “Right now I feel like I do when I’m in the airport.” It was in 1987 that a then-unknown Hall, briefly stepping in for Joan Rivers’ short-lived Fox talk show, took flight as the cool, hip alternative to NBC’s “Tonight Show” titan Johnny Carson. Then, in January 1989, he debuted with his own syndicated late-night show against Carson. He proved a formidable rival with his party atmosphere and a wide range of guests. But by 1994, Hall was facing new competition from “Tonight” host Jay Leno and David Letterman on CBS. With ratings slipping, he announced he was leaving the late-night arena, and, gracefully, he did. But Hall yearned to return to late night. In June 2012, he announced it was happening. “People say, ‘How did you know when to do it?’ Several times before I had tried!” Now he’s sure he’s ready, whatever skeptics may say. “I hear all the long-shot talk: ‘This is an impossible thing to do after all this time. The field is so crowded.’ But I still have to pursue my dream!”

MSNBC’s prime-time lineup is getting some star power with Alec Baldwin, at least for one night a week. The cable news network announced Thursday the actor will host “Up Late with Alec Baldwin,” a current events and culture talk show to air at 9 p.m. Fridays. The show is Alec Baldwin modeled after a podcast he’s been doing for WNYC radio in New York, interviewing personalities such as David Letterman, Dick Cavett and Republican political strategist Ed Rollins. The network said the show will begin in October.

‘Blurred Lines’ dominates summer To no one’s surprise, Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” is Billboard’s song of the summer. Billboard announced the list Thursday. Rock outfit Imagine Dragons is second with “Radioactive,” followed by Daft Punk with “Get Lucky.” Miley Cyrus’ party anthem “We Can’t Stop” is fourth and “Can’t Hold Us” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis is fifth.

Jolie, Martin to get honorary Oscars And the honorary Academy Awards go to – Angelina Jo-

The film academy announced Thursday that Jolie will receive the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, while Martin, Lansbury and Tosi will get Oscars recognizing their career achievements. The awards will be presented at an untelevised ceremony on Nov. 16 at Hollywood & Highland Center’s Ray Dolby Ballroom.

Daphne Oz reveals she is pregnant Here’s one kid who’ll be guaranteed to have healthy baby food. Daphne Oz, a host of ABC’s daytime program “The Chew” and daughter of talk show host Dr. Mehmet Oz, announced her pregnancy Thursday during a taping of the show’s season premiere, which will air Monday. It will be the first grandchild for Dr. Oz and his wife, Lisa. Daphne Oz, 27, has been married for three years to John Jovanovic. On the show, Oz talks about a summer trip she and her husband took to Europe and said she wanted to show a picture. She pulled out a strip of three sonogram images, surprising co-hosts Mario Batali, Michael Symon, Clinton Kelly and Carla Hall. Dr. Oz, who’s a heart surgeon, frequently promotes healthy habits on his show.

The 15.2-foot-long 2013 Nissan Sentra still handles like a small car and has more rear-seat legroom – a surprising 37.4 inches. AP photo

Small Sentra, R big attitude Stylish new Nissan compared with larger high-priced Altima

By ANN M. JOB The Associated Press

estyled for a new, upscale look, Nissan’s Sentra small sedan for 2013 is more fuel efficient than ever and so roomy inside the government no longer ranks it as a compact sedan. Some people even confuse the new, midsize Sentra with the larger, 2013 Nissan Altima because from the outside, the Sentra looks a lot like the more expensive Altima. In fact, though the 15.2-foot-long Sentra still handles like a small car and is 9.4

inches shorter in overall length than the Altima, the Sentra has more rear-seat legroom – a surprising 37.4 inches. This is more than the back-seat legroom of the typical small-car competitors such as the 2013 Honda Civic and 2013 Toyota Corolla. Add in affordable pricing and the Sentra’s top 34 miles-per-gallon federal government fuel economy rating for combined city/highway travel, and it’s easy to see why the Sentra is a noteworthy new model. And don’t think that 34 mpg is an unattainable figure. The test 2013 Sentra SL

averaged 34 mpg, even though the car was driven in normal fashion and the travel included a highway in the mountains and foothill roads. The fuel economy was enough to give the test car an impressive range of 440 miles on a single tank of regular unleaded. Starting manufacturer’s suggested retail price, including destination charge, is $16,780 for a base, 2013 Sentra S with 130-horsepower, four-cylinder engine and six-speed, manual transmission.

Standard fare on the $32,250 Hyundai Azera midsize sedan are eight airbags, a full-sized spare tire, a 293-horsepower engine and a six-speed shiftable automatic transmission.

Azera provides luxury ride REVIEWS Jerry Kuyper Hyundai executives apparently think they have a good thing going, and perhaps they do. The 2013 Azera is virtually the same as the redesigned 2012 model. There may have been no changes, but there was in price. The $32,000 2012 model is now the $32,250 2013 Azera. The Azera is priced more than the competition in this frontwheel-drive, five-passenger, four-door class of large sedans, but there is a reason. The price includes more, such as eight airbags, heated and cooled seats, leather and alloy trim, 18-inch alloy wheels, P245 performance tires, heated rear seat, and even a chilled glove box. These factors and more are included in the base price. A $4,000 technology package on a recently tested Azera included power rear sunshade and manual rear side window sunshades, power tilt and telescoping steering wheel plus tilt and slide sunroof, memory for driver (exterior mirrors, steering wheel, seat), ambient lighting, 19-inch wheels for wider P245 tires, xenon headlamps, ventilated front seats, driver’s seat cushion extension, rear park assist sensors and an upgrade sound system. If a buyer can do without the package, the base model includes a navigation system with a touchscreen display, rear backup camera, power front seats, power exterior heated exterior mirrors and door locks, power express windows in front and door locks, keyless entry and pushbutton start. The engine is a 3.3-liter, 293-horsepower V-6 mated to a six-speed shiftable automatic transmission. In the large sedan class, it excels and can race from 0 to 60 mph in less than 7 seconds. It has been tested in 6.7 seconds

Leather seating surfaces are standard on the 2013 Hyundai Azera sedan. by members of the automotive media. Even with the power, the Azera may not be the most exciting drive around. In that department, the Chrysler 300 and Buick LaCrosse come to mind. But the Azera does what it is supposed to do well, and that is provide comfort and a solid, economical ride. A 2013 Azera did just that. During hot days, the air conditioning compressor worked fine, and the fan distributed cooled air to the four corners of the vehicle. On one 180-mile stretch of interstate, the 3,605-pound sedan averaged 30.2 miles per gallon, but in combined city, suburban and county road driving, the average was 26.6 mpg. Economy is above average for a sedan of this size. From 60 to 0 mph, the braking distance is about 130 feet on dry

pavement, which is, again, average for this size of sedan. Legroom is phenomenal and has grown to 45.5 inches in front and 36.8 inches in the rear. Trunk space of 16.3 cubic feet puts it close to the top in the full-size sedan class. It can turn on a dime, but officially it turns a circle in 36.5 feet. The suspension system of wishbones with coil springs and gas shocks carried occupants quietly over road imperfections during the test week. Hyundai is known for loading a car (coupe, wagon or sedan) with goodies and daring the competition to do the same. It is true for each of the company’s entries in the various size categories, which are divided into several class niches (economy, practical, entry or near luxury and luxury). The Azera qualifies as a near-lux-

ury sedan. In the luxury class, Hyundai has the relatively new Genesis coupe and sedan. Introduced in 2001 as the XG300, Hyundai’s intent was to load up a midsize, four-door, five-passenger sedan with lots of goodies and undersell the competition. In 2002, the XG300 became the XG350 (3.5-liter engine instead of a 3-liter six-cylinder). In 2006, Hyundai renamed the XG the Azera. Niceties were a high definition sound system including satellite radio, a hands-free (Bluetooth) phone system, iPod and USB ports, auxiliary input jacks, side-mirror-mounted turn signal indicators, remote keyless entry, push button or smart start, leather seat and cabin trim. After several days in the car, I also discovered automatic headlights, a trip computer (necessary

to get, eventually, an accurate fuel economy figure), self-dimming rearview mirror for nighttime driving, a compass in that mirror, tilt and telescoping steering wheel, and rear seat (heated but not cooled) climate control vents. Design features include the P245 tires mounted on optional 19-inch alloy wheels (18 inchers standard), chrome tips for the dual exhausts at the rear, monochrome body moldings and door handles, raised beltline, fender creases, fog lights in front and a short rear deck. Besides traction and stability controls, safety features include eight airbags, dusk-sensing headlights and a full-size spare tire. Additional niceties are cruise control, air conditioning, dual lighted vanity mirrors, tachometer, clock, compass, variable intermittent wipers and a rear defogger. There are 12-volt outlets, floor mats, reading lights, grab handles, cup holders and armrests front and rear. The split rear seat allows access to the trunk. Other safety features include a four-wheel antilock braking system, electronic brakeforce distribution, five seatbelts and adjustable headrests (whiplash protection in front), child seat anchors and rear door child safety locks. The five-year or 60,000-mile warranty includes 24-hour roadside assistance. The powertrain is under warranty for 10 years or 100,000 miles. With its raised hood, front fog lights, wraparound headlights and short rear deck, the Azura is designed to resemble a sedan from the BMW 5-Series and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. From a distance, an Azera might even be mistaken for this classy competition. Like the Mercedes, Hyundai mounts the power front seat controls, which are in the shape of seat and headrest, on the door panels. Ask about $500 to $1,000 rebates and the possibility of 2.90 percent financing at a dealership.

M6 Gran Coupe has the looks By JASON H. HARPER Bloomberg News I pull a 2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe, costing $131,000, into a New Jersey parking lot next to a rare $173,000 Audi R8 convertible supercar. My four-door BMW is brilliantly blue, very beautiful and bad to the bone. I return an hour later to find the owners of the exotic R8 crouching next to it, checking out the shiny alloy rims. They are apparently in agreement. “Tell me this car is yours,” exclaims one. “It is awesome.” They rhapsodize about the size of the wheels (20 inches), the horsepower (560) and zero to 60 speed (4.1 seconds). I try to steer the conversation to the R8 Spyder, one of my favorite convertibles, but no. It is the BMW they are entranced with. I totally understand. This is the most gorgeous, desirable car from BMW in a long time. And since it’s got four doors, the Gran Coupe gets a dose of practicality, too. BMW’s lineup is bewildering. The company’s strategy of filling up every bit of white space in the market has given us any number of odd offerings, from the X6 crossover thing to brand-new i3 electric runabout. The Gran Coupe is based off of the 6 Series, which is itself a niche car. The regular 6 is long and low, with two doors and back seats. It’s a sensual object, long on style but short on utility, bought by the kind of driver who can name-check obscure fashion designers and star architects. The 6 Series Gran Coupe ($78,000), counter-intuitively adds two side doors to the already sedan-like profile, officially making it a sedan. (I won’t even get into the Gran Coupe’s ludicrous name, as by definition a coupe has two doors. BMW

BMW

The 2014 BMW M6 Gran Coupe blasts from zero to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds with 14 mpg city and 21 highway. long ago exempted itself from a coherent naming strategy with models like the Z4 sDrive35is.) The M6 Gran Coupe – stay with me – is the high-powered M version of the 6 Series Gran Coupe, with a headier engine, re-tuned suspension, bigger brakes and more aggressive body panels. Starting at $115,000, including a $1,000 gas guzzler tax, it is niche upon niche upon niche. Almost 16 and a half feet long and 6.8 feet wide, the M6 Gran Coupe takes up a sizable footprint. The classic double-kidney grill is set above a trio of air-gulping intakes and headlamps located in the extreme top corners.

The really good stuff happens along the side profile, where you get a sense of leanness and length. The double doors fill out the body in a pleasing way, with the rear door opening just ahead of the back wheel. A vertical crease runs through the body and door handles; the skin sucks into the body below that. It is dramatic and interesting, full of tension that relieves itself as your eye skirts to the rear. If only Maserati was making cars as pretty these days. The black carbon-fiber roof emphasizes the narrow strip of medal skimming over the top of the side windows. My test car was painted “San Marino,” a crackling blue

that shows off the lines to best effect. White has been the en-vogue color for too long, perhaps the result of the recession and car buyers not wanting to draw unwanted attention. Take one look at this shade and you’ll think: Enough. Color is good. There’s plenty of leg room and decent headroom in back for two passengers. Trunk space is only adequate. There’s a reason a buyer is going for the M model: speed and power. BMW has long offered a speedy sedan – the M5. The M6 directly competes with it, sharing the same 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8 with 502 pound-feet of torque. The engine makes fine sounds when properly

abused, and the car feels more like a hot rod than luxury sedan. My car had a splendid six-speed manual attached. How nice it is to use a clutch! Otherwise a seven-speed double-clutch automated manual is standard. My test car also had carbon-ceramic brakes, an unnecessary $9,250 upcharge unless you’re taking it to the racetrack (which you wouldn’t). Like every 6 Series I’ve driven, the Gran Coupe is uncomfortable on very narrow roads, owing to its size and the inability to see the side fenders from the driver’s seat. Also, given the sport suspension and big tires, the ride is punishing over rough pavement.

The car’s speed and power may be the least interesting things about it. I couldn’t stop thinking about the exterior, so I stopped in a bank parking lot to take another look. A bank manager, a self-professed car lover, came outside to take a look. He called inside the bank, and soon we were joined by several co-workers who shared his passion. I marveled at their interest. I’ve never been in a BMW that attracted more attention, or whose obscure specifications people knew so much about. “The M6!” one young woman exclaimed. “It’s got 560 horsepower, right?”

Apps threaten navigation systems By KEITH NAUGHTON Bloomberg News SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – Tim Nixon, chief technology officer of General Motors’ OnStar service, knew something was amiss when he saw his two sons taking the “suction-cup approach” to in-car navigation: They would turn their iPhones sideways, stick them to the windshield and use a free map app to find their way. That represented a rejection of their father’s work: convincing car buyers to pay $1,500 or more for a dashboard navigation system with an 8-inch screen and elaborate graphics. Nixon came up with an answer: GM now offers a $50 map application for iPhones that can play on the dashboard touchscreen of a $12,170 Chevrolet Spark. “We’ve historically had these on-board, embedded nav systems,” Nixon said. “That’s just not going to cut it anymore. The game has changed and the bar has been raised by these always-connected devices that bring fresh information into the car.” The chase is on for the fully connected car. Streaming Internet music sites through the car radio isn’t enough anymore. As more people use smartphones to traverse their daily drive, automakers’ pricey and profitable in-car navigation systems are threatened. The reason is simple: Many map apps are free while embedded nav systems run from $500 to more than $2,000. Even more compelling is the emergence of social-networking map apps like Waze. “Wazers,” as the app’s 48 million users call themselves, touch prompts on their smartphone to report traffic jams and accidents and then the app re-routes them onto a faster path. Last month, Google outbid Facebook to

acquire Waze, paying about $1.1 billion for the app maker with offices in Israel and Palo Alto, Calif. “If you have a choice between paying a lot of money on an expensive in-car nav system or a free app on your iPhone, which are you going to choose?” Di-Ann Eisnor, head of Waze’s U.S. business, said in an interview. “It is a considerable threat” to automakers. The boom in mobile-phone map apps is pressuring automakers to adapt so they can maintain control of the burgeoning navigation market. Installations of in-car navigations systems worldwide will grow to 32.7 million in 2019, more than double this year’s 13.8 million, according to consultant IHS Automotive. In the U.S., half of all cars will come equipped with nav systems by 2019, up from 25 percent now, IHS forecast in a report this month on automotive-infotainment systems. “The nav function has become the Internet browser of infotainment systems,” Mark Boyadjis, an IHS analyst based in Minnetonka, Minn., said of the growing ubiquity of digital dashboard maps. Even mapping-device providers, such as Garmin and TomTom, now offer apps that run on phones. Until now, most in-car navigations systems haven’t been connected to the Web. Instead, they use maps loaded onto DVDs that work with global positioning satellites to plot a course. Those maps become dated quickly, especially as points of interest, such as coffee shops and gasoline stations, open and close. Smartphone apps have fresher maps and points of interest because they constantly pull new data from the Internet via storage and other computing services known as the cloud. “If you want to update the maps in your car, it’s an

Bloomberg News

More people are using smartphones, and the free map apps available on them, for their drives, threatening automakers’ pricey and profitable in-car navigation systems. expensive and complicated process of having to go to the dealership,” said John Canali, who tracks the navigation business for Strategy Analytics in metropolitan Boston. “With the smartphone, a lot of applications have the maps refreshed regularly.” Automakers have increased profits from nav systems by bundling them with expensive option packages such as leather seats, sun roofs and high-end audio systems. “It’s a very lucrative, profitable option for carmakers,” said Niall Berkery, executive director of the automotive business for TeleNav, a provider of the Scout navigation system for smartphones which can be operated through Ford’s touchscreen controls. “Carmakers push those kinds of packages with navigation because it’s a higher margin package for them.” Consumers, however, aren’t always pleased. Satisfaction fell last year among

car owners with nav systems, according to a survey by J.D. Power & Associates. The biggest complaint is the difficulty in usage. The namesake brand has fallen to 27th in J.D. Power’s Initial Quality Study, from fifth in 2010, due mostly to problems with its touchscreen dashboard controls. Meanwhile, 47 percent of car owners told J.D. Power they used a map app on their mobile phone while driving last year, up from 37 percent in 2011. And 46 percent of car owners with a factory-installed navigation system said they wouldn’t buy one again if their smartphone app could play on their dashboard screen. “Many people view their smartphone as having better processing speed, better points of interest and better map data,” said Mike VanNieuwkyuk, J.D. Power’s executive director of global automotive research. “Consumers get frustrated when they take ownership of their

vehicle that map data can be up to a year-and-a-half old or more. It’s very frustrating for somebody to search for something they know is there and the map can’t find it.” That’s why consumers increasingly are turning to their phones for driving directions. U.S. visitors to map apps in May grew 11 percent to 79.1 million, making it one of the most popular applications, according to researcher ComScore Inc. “Smartphones and the software are becoming so advanced that they’re really changing consumer behavior in a profound way,” said Andrew Lipsman, a Chicago-based analyst for ComScore. “So categories that may have really grown a few years ago all of a sudden have a new competitor because these devices can do a little bit of everything.” Automakers are embracing the challenge and scrambling to re-engineer their nav systems to make them compatible with smartphones.

“We look at it as an opportunity,” Marios Zenios, vice president of Chrysler’s Uconnect infotainment system. “All this capability, including Waze, is sitting on the cloud, it’s not sitting on the phone. We are able to go to the cloud through their phone, bring the information down and display it on our screen.” Chrysler, however, hasn’t paired with Waze, nor has Ford or GM, though GM’s Nixon said he met with the map app maker’s leaders in Israel this year. Waze will make its first appearance on a car later this year, said Eisnor, the company executive. It’s with a Japanese automaker that she declined to identify. “We’ve had conversations with everyone,” Eisnor said of the interest Waze is getting from major automakers. Cars and mobile map apps will ultimately merge because each complements the other’s strengths, said Michelle Moody, Ford’s consumer tech marketing manager. Cars have a stronger GPS connection and larger display screen. Phone apps have the latest maps and users providing real-time traffic updates. “The reality is neither one is a perfect solution,” Moody said. “Together, they might be a perfect solution.” Eisnor sees a time when Waze is plugged into the functions of a car and can crowd-source information on a rain storm when Wazers turn on their windshield wipers. Providing information on braking and wheel speed to the social network would reduce traffic and get people off the road quicker, she said. “What you do with all that information could save billions of hours a year,” she said. “Think what that does for the GDP and the CO2 saved from going into the environment. This has big possibilities.”

Sentra’s front headroom is better than the Corolla and Civic sedans • SENTRA Continued from page D1 is $16,780 for a base, 2013 Sentra S with 130-horsepower, four-cylinder engine and six-speed, manual transmission. The lowest starting retail price for a 2013 Sentra with a continuously variable transmission that drivers operate like an automatic is $17,380. No regular automatic is available on the 2013 Sentra, and only the base S model is offered with a choice of manual or CVT for 2013. All 2013 Sentras come with the 130-horsepower four cylinder that produces a maximum 128 foot-pounds of torque at 3,600 rpm. In comparison, the starting retail price for a 2013 Altima, which comes with a 182-horsepower four cylinder, is $22,550. Meantime, the 2013 Honda Civic sedan has a starting MSRP, including destination charge, of $18,955 with manual transmission and $19,755 with automatic, while the 2013 Toyota Corolla with manual transmission starts at $17,040 and with automatic starts at $18,990. The Civic is powered by a 140-horsepower four cylinder, while the Corolla has a 132-horsepower, four-cylinder engine. The new Sentra is upscale feeling, inside and out. Even light-emitting diodes accent headlights and taillamps on all 2013 Sentras, and chrome-look door handles are standard on all models. The dashboard has softtouch plastic with a pleasant appearance, and the center armrest between front seats in the test Sentra SL was cushioned. While leather-trimmed seats are available, the premium, gray-colored,

cloth-covered seats in the SL tester provided good support and were cooler to the skin on hot summer days. The optional navigation package, which added voice recognition control, handsfree text messaging, a rearview monitor and colorful, 5.8-inch display and touch screen, was only $650. This is an amazing price compared with other carmakers’ pricing. The Sentra’s electroluminescent gauges also were a nice, upscale touch. Nissan didn’t scrimp on the front-seat legroom to add space to the back seat. Front-seat passengers get a full 42.5 inches of legroom, and the front seat tracks are long to accommodate many sizes of passengers. The 15.1-cubic-foot trunk also is generously sized and is 18 percent bigger than the Corolla’s trunk. All this comes from a 2.3-inch longer car than last year’s Sentra. The 2013 Sentra is a bit shorter in height than last year’s model, but at 58.9 inches is still taller than a 2013 Civic sedan and a 2013 Corolla. In fact, the Sentra’s front headroom of 39.4 inches is better than the Corolla and Civic sedans. Intriguingly, while the Sentra has grown a bit larger, it’s some 150 pounds lighter. The reduced weight, plus improved aerodynamics, help account for the fuel economy. So does the smaller-displacement engine and the CVT, which in the Sentra test car wasn’t as onerous and fun-sapping as some earlier Nissan CVTs have been. The engine now is a 1.8-liter, double overhead cam four cylinder that develops 10 less horsepower than last year’s 2-liter unit. Still, the test Sentra SL felt light, yet solid, and had

decent throttle response. While not a sporty car, the Sentra moved well with traffic. It seemed that Nissan engineers have found the right combination to deliver adequate power and better-than-expected, real-world fuel economy. Certainly, with the “eco” button activated just a couple times during the test drive to conserve fuel and the car driven without a focus on gas mileage, the range was impressive. The suspension softened most road bumps for a comfortable ride, but the Sentra tester still handled mountain curves at decent speed with poise. The Sentra doesn’t have the kind of sound deadening and noise isolation that’s found in more upscale cars, and sounds from nearby trucks and engine droning came through to the passenger compartment. The 2013 Sentra earned four out of five stars in overall crash testing by the federal government. The side crash test was good for the top, five stars, but the overall rating was pulled down by a four-outof-five-stars rating in frontal testing. In contrast, the 2013 Civic earned an overall five out of five stars. The 2013 Sentra has been involved in two safety recalls. In one, Sentras were recalled because a sensor that detected whether a passenger was sitting in the front passenger seat had not been built to specification and might suppress deployment of an air bag. The other safety recall involved Sentra gas tanks that might not have been fully sealed, resulting in potential fuel leakage when the tank is full. This might cause a fire.

Dodge owner curious about rustproofing I own a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan that I’ve had since it was new. It has developed extensive rust in the rocker panels and along the lower edges of the doors. Around the time I bought it, there was an automotive journalist who wrote a weekly column in a major Chicago-area newspaper. He wrote several times in his columns that buying aftermarket rustproofing for new cars was a waste of money; new cars didn’t need it. Well, in my case, that was not true. At some point soon, I will have to replace my van. What are your recommendations regarding aftermarket rustproofing for today’s new cars? – D.P., Spring Grove Rustproofing does not prevent all rust. It all depends upon the construction of the part. Let’s consider your vehicle. The rust around the lower edges of the doors more than likely formed at a crimp or pinch seam where the outer panel connects to the inner panel. This also is an issue for the rocker panels beneath the doors. Rustproofing will not prevent moisture from seeping into these areas unless the vehicle is sealed on the inside and outside. I’ve seen a few cars in my many years in this business that did have undercoating applied to inner and outer panels, but in my opinion the vehicles did not have the appeal most people look for in a vehicle. Comparing vehicles of today to vehicles manufactured in 2000, more anti-corrosive materials are in today’s vehicles that will resist rust. The weaknesses of the pinch and crimp seams

DR. GIZMO Phil Arendt still exist, although manufactures apply sealants in these areas to help prevent moisture and the formation of corrosion. All vehicles suffer from corrosion somewhere, whether it’s in the suspension, sub-frame assembly, fasteners or body. Rustproofing will not prevent it. Surface chips to the body expose metals to moisture and chemicals that form rust. Once it starts, it’s nearly impossible to stop, and let’s face it, the average motorist does not get down under a vehicle to check for chips in the rocker panels to repair problem areas. Manufactures have made great strides in the use of sealers, adhesives, entire body anti-corrosive coatings and metals used in the construction of vehicles to help prevent the formation of corrosion. Despite this, a vehicle is not rust proof. In the future, when you buy a new vehicle, applying rustproofing can void the manufacture corrosion warranty. Check the manufacturer warranty policy before modifying the original design of any vehicle because a modification such as rustproofing might cause corrosion.

I own a 2004 Cadillac SRX that developed a misfire. My repair shop has replaced the spark plugs, tested the cylinder compression, swapped ignition coils and fuel injectors, checked for vacuum leaks and more, but

the misfire continues. The misfire is affecting the cylinders in one side of the engine. My car has 133,000 miles. The check-engine light turns on. Sometimes it flashes, and sometimes it shines steadily. Tests are inconclusive. What do suggest I do next? – B.T.P., email Return to your shop. Better yet, it’s time to have another shop take a crack at diagnosing the trouble. It appears the present shop has exhausted their expertise and resources. A fresh look at the problem at another shop might find the cause. If you should decide to return to the present shop, ask the manager to consider thorough testing of the oxygen sensors on the afflicted side of the engine. It’s possible a sensor is not responding as designed. This might result in information to the engine control module that is causing an excessively lean or rich fuel mixture. This type of condition can cause cylinders to misfire. If so, replacing an afflicted sensor might be a lasting cure.

There is a rattling sound coming from the front of the 6-cylinder engine in my 2008 Kia Sorento. It has 77,000 miles. I bought it two years ago, when it had 51,000 miles. Since I bought it, I have taken great care of it with oil changes every 3,000 miles. I went to a repair shop, where they at first thought the noise was coming from the drive belt. They replaced it, but the noise remained. Now they think the timing chain is

making the noise, but they say they have never seen a Kia Sorento need a chain before, so they think there might be other causes for the noise. Is it common for a timing chain to need replacement at this mileage? – B.L., email It’s unusual for a timing chain to need replacement at the present mileage. Typically this needs replacement maybe never during ownership, but it’s something to think about replacing beyond 100,000 miles. Be this as it may it is possible it needs replacement now. It’s also possible the tensioner assemblies that keep the chain tight are worn, causing the chain to rattle. Another cause might be low oil pressure or restricted oil flow to the tensioner assemblies. A technician won’t know for sure what causes the trouble until he uncovers the chain assembly for examination.

I have a 1987 Ford F-250 pickup with a 7.5-liter engine and 30,000 miles. This is the last truck with a carbureted engine, and it’s in like-new condition. The trouble is the fuel pumps burned out. I replaced both of them and the fuel switching valve. I sent both fuel tanks to a shop to have them cleaned. I ended up replacing one tank. After the work, 150 miles later the pumps burned out again. This time I installed new pumps from a dealership, but they burned out 99 miles later. I’m about to pull my hair out over this problem. What should I do next? – B.L., email With only 30,000 miles,

the truck isn’t broken in. It’s time to check for current draw. It may be too high due to poor ground connections. It’s also possible there is a restriction causing too much back pressure. Check the lines for restrictions, fuel pressure regulator and fuel return valve on the carburetor. Repair all depends upon your findings.

The engine stalled while driving my 1999 Nissan Maxima on the highway while on vacation. I’m still on vacation now without my car. I attempted to start it several times and the battery went dead. I did not realize I had run out of gas. I had the car towed to a repair shop where they charged the battery and poured five gallons of gas in the tank. After this the engine cranked but would not start. They said the security system kicked in and won’t allow the engine to start. They said they need to tow the car to a dealership to have this problem repaired. Does this seem right to you? – P.P., email Wow, trouble occurs in threes. Indeed it is possible the security system prevents starting. Since the repair shop suggests towing the vehicle to a dealership it’s obvious they are not equipped to repair the trouble. It’s time to tow it. It’s possible the key needs reprogramming. If so, the security system will decipher the code after programming and the engine will start.

The air conditioner in my 1995 Nissan Maxima is not cooling normally. My repair

shop has replaced the compressor, expander valve and receiver valve. Despite this it isn’t cooling properly. When I’m stopped at a light or driving in heavy traffic with the controls set to the coldest setting the air temperature at the vents is around 70 degrees. When driving the temperature often drops down to around 40 degrees at the vents. My shop says everything is working correctly. They don’t know why the air conditioner acts this way. Do you know what’s up? – R.C., email The fact that the temperature goes up at a stop or in heavy traffic is not unusual but the dramatic swing in temperature is not normal. Although your shop assured you that everything is operating normally there appears to be an issue with air flow through the engine cooling radiator and air conditioning condenser. There might be debris blocking air flow. The shrouds that funnel air through these parts might be broken or missing. The cooling fans may not be functioning as designed. The next time you visit your shop ask them to consider these suggestions. Perhaps they may find something unusual such as a mouse nest is blocking air flow.

Thermtrol shuttered Cary plant lays off 60, relocates to Vietnam By JIM DALLKE

jdallke@shawmedia.com CARY – A Cary manufacturing company laid off dozens of employees after relocating its plant this summer. Thermtrol Corp. closed its Cary manufacturing plant in July and laid off 60 workers, according to the State of Illinois August Warn Activity Listing. The company, which manufactures motor vehicle and electronic

equipment, relocated the plant to Vietnam, according to Crain’s Chicago Business. Multiple messages to Thermtrol’s Ohio headquarters were not returned Thursday. The phone line at the company’s Cary plant, located at 1175 Alexander Court, was disconnected. On Thermtrol’s website, the company said it has manufacturing plants in Ohio and Vietnam. The website said Thermtrol’s Vietnam operation was opened in 2003, and the country

“brings to the table a well-educated and stable workforce with an incredible work ethic and is among the lowest labor cost centers in the world.” Thermtrol acquired MGI Manufacturing in Cary in 2007, according to a timeline on the company’s website. “This acquisition brings with it specialty engineering and plastic molding expertise in manufacturing wire harnesses for the automotive and related industries,” the website said of the Cary acquisition.

Job seekers check out companies at a job fair Aug. 14 in Miami Lakes, Fla. The Labor Department on Thursday reported the number of Americans who applied for unemployment benefits for the first week of September. Those seeking unemployment benefits dropped near the lowest level since June 2008.

Applications for jobless aid near a 5-year low Measurement indicates fewer layoffs by employers By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER The Associated Press WASHINGTON – The number of Americans seeking unemployment benefits dropped 9,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 323,000, near the lowest level since June 2008. The figure shows employers are laying off fewer and fewer workers, an encouraging sign one day before the government will issue its August jobs report. Weekly applications are just 1,000 above a five-year low reached last month, the Labor Department said Thursday. The four-week average, a less-volatile measure, declined 3,000 to 328,500. That’s the lowest point since October 2007 – two months before the Great Recession officially began. A private survey released Thursday by the payroll company ADP showed that businesses added 176,000 jobs in August, roughly in line with the monthly average for the year. Combined, the two reports point to steady improvement in the job

market – a fact the Federal Reserve will weigh when it meets later this month to consider whether to slow its monthly bond purchases. Many analysts think the Fed will scale back its bond buying, which has been intended to keep long-term borrowing rates near record lows. Applications for unemployment benefits are a proxy for layoffs. They have fallen 5 percent in the past two months, raising hopes that hiring could pick up. “Firms continue to be less concerned about cutting labor costs and may be more comfortable with raising them,” said Jonathan Basile, an economist at Credit Suisse. Economists forecast that the August jobs report will show employers added 177,000 jobs, up from 162,000 in July. The unemployment rate is expected to remain 7.4 percent. Still, the unemployment rate is well above the 5 percent to 6 percent range associated with a normal economy. In addition, most of the growth this year in the number of

people working is due to fewer layoffs rather than strong hiring. Job growth is the number of people hired minus the number who lose or quit jobs. When companies are laying off few workers, it doesn’t take many hires to create solid growth in the number working. Nearly 4.4 million Americans received unemployment benefits in the week that ended Aug. 17, the latest period for which figures are available. That’s about 70,000 fewer than the previous week. A year ago, 5.5 million Americans were receiving benefits. Many of the jobs created in recent months have been lower-paying, part-time positions in industries such as hotels, restaurants and retail. Higher-paying industries such as manufacturing and construction have mostly shed jobs since spring. But some signs indicate that hiring in both industries could pick up. A private survey released Tuesday showed that factory activity grew last month at the fastest pace in more than two years.

Learning isn’t just for children As the school year begins and people’s thoughts turn to fall clothes, school supplies and new things to learn, it’s also a good time for employers to think about learning in their workplace. Study after study has found that supporting and providing development opportunities for employees has major benefits for everyone involved. The American Psychological Association reports that “the opportunity to gain new skills and experiences can increase employee motivation and job satisfaction, and help workers more effectively manage job stress.” Development opportunities also benefit companies “by enhancing organizational effectiveness and improving work quality, as well as by helping the organization attract and retain top-quality employees.” Those are some pretty big payoffs from such a simple investment. Surprisingly, a Jenkins Group study revealed that one-third of high school graduates never read another book for the rest of their lives. Forty-two percent of college graduates never read another book after college. Eighty percent of U.S. families did not buy or read a book last year. Do not let this happen to you or your staff. Never stop learning, growing and developing. It not only builds individuals, it builds your team! Now, there’s no one-size-fits-all employee development plan. But, there are many ways employers can provide personal and professional growth and development opportunities, many of which are as big or as small as the companies themselves. But, there are three

have on hand. Ask various departments or team members to host the lunch events and teach on everything from understanding social media to using the latest software version to the basics of invoicing and accounting. These luncheons can just be for personal enrichment or to help employees grow their skills in other work areas they might be interested in pursuing.

Views Terri Greeno basic ways any employer can kick-start their business’s learning plan without investing a lot of time or money. • Establish a Learning Culture: The excitement and drive to learn new things must start at the top. Employees need to see that management, from the company executives to the frontline managers, are passionate about growing their knowledge and skills. Managers should encourage their own employees to continue learning and give them the freedom to acquire new skills through a variety of formats, including online videos, webinars or articles. Growth and development also can be woven into the yearly review and goalsetting process. Each employee should set at least one development goal at the beginning of the year. Management then checks back around the middle of the year to ensure progress is being made and that the developmental goal hasn’t been pushed aside for something that seems more important. • Host Internal Lunch and Learns: Schedule regular lunch and learn events where employees can learn something new over their lunch break. Whether or not you provide lunch is up to you and your budget, but you don’t have to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars to bring in subject experts to speak. Tap into the experts you already

• Support Professional Organization Involvement: Be supportive of employees’ professional organizations, whether you can cover the annual membership fee on the employees’ behalf or you just allow them time off to attend meetings. Employees will become even greater experts in their fields as they learn from specialized speakers and network with colleagues at organization events. Many local organizations also provide opportunities for members to attend nationally recognized conferences and workshops at discounted rates. And, the more employees who are involved in local organizations, the better known your business will be around the community. Learning isn’t just for kids returning to school. Everyone needs to continue learning throughout their life to keep from growing out-of-touch, and that includes your employees. Providing opportunities for growth and development will not only help keep workers motivated and satisfied, but their growth also will fuel your business to reach its full potential.

Yahoo unveils logo in turnaround makeover By MICHAEL LIEDTKE SAN FRANCISCO – Yahoo has refreshed its logo for the first time since shortly after the Internet company’s founding 18 years ago. The new look unveiled late Wednesday is part of a makeover that Yahoo Inc. has been undergoing since the Sunnyvale, Calif., company hired Google executive Marissa Mayer to become Yahoo’s CEO 14 months ago. Mayer already has spruced up Yahoo’s front page, email and Flickr photo-sharing service, as well as engineered a series of acquisitions aimed at attracting more traffic on mobile devices. The shopping spree has been highlighted by Yahoo’s $1.1 billion purchase of Tumblr, an Internet blog-

over, Yahoo spent the past 30 days showing some of the proposed logos that Mayer and her helpers cast aside. The revision is the first time that Yahoo has made a significant change to its logo since a few tweaks shortly after co-founders Jerry Yang and David Filo incorporated the company in 1995. Since Yahoo’s logo is so recognizable, it’s a good thing they kept the changes relatively sedate, says branding expert Laura Ries, of the Atlanta firm Ries & Ries. “One of the worst things in the world you can do is have a logo around for two decades and then do something totally different. It’s quite unsettling for consumers,” she said. Keeping the purple and the exclamation point was a good idea, she said.

visitors come to Yahoo’s front page or an app, the exclamation point dances across some of the lettering before settling at the end of the company’s name at a slight tilt of nine degrees. “We knew we wanted a logo that reflected Yahoo – whimsical, yet sophisticated,” Mayer wrote on her Tumblr account. She hailed the redesigned looks as “modern and fresh, with a nod to our history. Having a human touch, personal. Proud.” Mayer, 38, said she spent most of one weekend this summer figuring out what the new logo should look like with four other Yahoo colleagues: Bob Stohrer, Marc DeBartolomeis, Russ Khaydarov, and an intern, Max Ma. In an effort to drum up more interest in the change-

8IN BRIEF Stocks eke out gains on better jobs reports NEW YORK – Stocks are notching modest gains on Wall Street after encouraging news about the U.S. jobs market and higher sales from two major store chains.

The Nasdaq composite rose nine points, or 0.3 percent, at 3,658.

President of Illinois Chamber retiring CHICAGO – The president of the Illinois Chamber of Commerce is retiring next year. Chamber Chairman Ray Drake says Douglas Whitley announced his retirement plans at the chamber board’s quarterly meeting on Thursday. Whitley has had the position for 12 years and says he will leave the cham-

ber in June. Whitley is 63. Drake says the chamber’s board will embark on a nationwide search to replace Whitley. Drake says Whitley has given the board enough time to find a new president and prepare before next year’s election for Illinois governor.

Walmart workers protest in NYC over conditions NEW YORK – Three people participating in a New York City protest against Walmart have been taken into police custody. About 20 employees, former employees and supporters gathered Thursday outside a Manhattan building where a member of the company’s board of directors has an office. They delivered a petition calling for improved working conditions and reinstatement of workers they say were fired for engaging in labor activities. Police say one man and two women were charged with disorderly conduct for blocking the entrance to the building and trespassing. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is based in Bentonville, Ark. It calls the New York protest “a show” put on by union activists from other states. It says in a statement the “vast majority” of its workers don’t share the opinions of the protesters.

Statewide median price up 14.2 percent from 2012 • HOME Continued from page E1 since August 2006. The statewide median price in July was $169,000, up 14.2 percent from July 2012 when the median price was $148,000. The median is a typical market price where half the homes sold for more and half sold for less. “Slight increases in interest rates over the past few months have done little to slow interest in home ownership,” Illinois Association of Realtors President Michael

Oldenettel said in a news release. “Buyers are clearly comfortable enough with the way the economy is progressing to make a big purchase, and sellers are getting off the sidelines as they see prices begin to erase losses sustained during the recession.” The monthly average commitment rate for a 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage for the North Central region was 4.35 percent in July 2013, up from 4.09 percent during the previous month, according to the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp. In July 2012, it averaged 3.54 percent.

By PHILLIP ALDER Newspaper Enterprise Association

Yesterday, I stressed considering your options at trick one. Here is another example. If South plans carefully, he has a good chance to make his contract. But if he plows forward thoughtlessly, he will probably fail. South is in four spades. West leads the club king, and East signals with his jack. What should declarer do? I think North should have made a takeout double over one club. True, the double might have resulted in his side’s playing in a 4-3 majorsuit it, but it would have been more lexible than one diamond. Then, South’s onespade advance was forcing for one round. South has four potential losers: two hearts, one diamond and one club. But if diamonds are splitting 3-2, he has 10 winners: ive spades, four diamonds and one club. How might he lose four tricks irst? Only if East gains the lead to push a heart through. So, at trick one, South must play low, letting West hold the trick. If declarer takes the irst trick, when West gets in with

his diamond king, he will continue with a low club, giving East the lead for the heart shift. Note that West knows to do this from East’s careful play of the club jack at trick one. Play the top of touching honors when you cannot win a trick on defense. South takes West’s club continuation, draws trumps ending in his hand, and plays a low diamond to dummy’s jack. Then, because dummy has no side entry, declarer continues with a low diamond to his queen. After that, he cruises home.

CROSSWORD

HOROSCOPE

▲ ▲

TODAY - Taking a look at the way others do things will spark new ideas for future projects in the year ahead. You will be able to move forward with ambitious objectives and the help and support you need. Your rewards will be greatly enjoyed and much deserved. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Opportunity and discipline will take you a long way. Don’t put off anything that will bring you closer to your goal. Call in favors and reestablish connections that could help you advance. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Consider what isn’t working in your life and begin the process that will lead to peace of mind and a bright future. Don’t hesitate to give someone else the chance to take control. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- A geographical change will spark enthusiasm and inspiration. You may need to negotiate with someone who could greatly help your cause. Learn as you go, and you will excel. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Be secretive about your plans. Strategize carefully and get everything in place before you make your move. You can come out on top, but your timing must be faultless. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Don’t let your emotions stand between you and success. Someone you love may sabotage your plans if you have been neglectful of them. Take care of both personal and professional responsibilities to minimize obstacles. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Partnership situations will be difficult. Expect to face a standoff that could alter the way you do things in the future. Offer an experimental way to solve differences, and you may find common ground. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You’re in a good cycle for contracts, agreements and moneymaking opportunities. Share ideas with someone who has as much to contribute as you do. An unusual path could be the one to take to reach your objective. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Consider a certain change, but don’t jump in too quickly. You aren’t likely to get what you want if you are restless and impatient. Let someone else make the first move. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Keep things moving along. Stubbornness will be what stands between you and success. A practical approach to a job will help you avoid complaints and interference. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Travel and communication will inspire you. The fresh ideas coming your way may seem challenging at first, but with a couple of adjustments you’ll find a way to make things happen. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- If you invite friends over to enjoy the comfort of your home, you will be able to successfully ask for favors and support. At the very least, a fun time will be had by all. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Not everyone will agree with your choices, but you have to do what’s best for you. Be receptive and polite in the face of criticism, but trust your own mind above others. Love is on the rise.
