Good morning, McHenry County ...

Don’t stake relationships on election While a little passion for government is generally a good thing, the outright mania that takes place during a presidential election, particularly this one, is as healthy as a Whopperito. And while I’d like to believe that it will all end in a few weeks, it probably won’t. You’d be hard-pressed to find two more polarizing candidates than Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, who according to social media are personally responsible for most of the world’s ills since the 1980s with the exception of Eddie Murphy’s singing career. That’s fine. People are going to disagree. About half of the country will go one way or another. Happens every four years. But it’s always confused me as to why people take these kinds of races so personally that they’re willing to fight with neighbors, family members, co-workers and complete strangers over people who don’t even know they exist. One of these people is going to be president of the United States. The other one will go back to being a millionaire. When that happens, unless you’re expecting a cabinet post, most people are going back to sitcom viewing. You’ll still be in the same neighborhood.

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK Kevin Lyons Uncle Bob is still going to sit across from you at Thanksgiving spilling gravy on your best linen. That woman from payroll will still cut you a check although that guy you’ve been shouting at on Twitter has moved on to trolling Dodgers fans. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton isn’t going to let your dog out for you because you’re stuck behind a six-car pileup on I-90. Donald Trump won’t pick up your slack at work while you’re out for back surgery. Neither are showing up at the wake after your father is taken from you unexpectedly. Over these last remaining weeks, I just hope people keep that in mind when speaking with each other.

WASHINGTON – It will take more than three clicks of the heels to preserve the ruby slippers that whisked Dorothy back to Kansas at the end of “The Wizard of Oz.” The slippers, which for more than 30 years have been one of the most beloved items at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History, were crafted almost 80 years ago by the MGM Studios prop department. Like most movie props, they weren’t built to last. Now, the frayed shoes aren’t even ruby-colored anymore – they’re more like a dull auburn. On Monday, the Smithsonian asked the public to help save the slippers, launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise $300,000.

Lifelong die-hard Cubs fan Stewart McVicar discusses his collection of Chicago Cubs memorabilia, including an autographed giant bobblehead of Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo, displayed in his McHenry County home.


McHenry County man hosts fundraisers for fellow die-hards in man cave By NATE LINHART Hidden in McHenry County, Stewart McVicar turned his basement into the ultimate Chicago Cubs lair. “It’s been a four-year project getting it to where it is today,” McVicar said. “The easiest part of building this was putting in most of the collectibles, because I’ve been collecting some of this stuff since I was 8 years old.”

The man cave, nicknamed Club 400, features a bar, remarkable Cubs memorabilia, comfortable seating and, of course, multiple TVs to watch Cubs games on. It also boasts two gaming areas. Just some of McVicar’s displayed items include the ticket from his first Cubs home game, a base from the 100year anniversary of the team, an authentic piece of the Wrigley foul pole, a lifesize Anthony Rizzo bobblehead and

plenty of signed bats, balls and jerseys. “I originally built this so I could have a space to call my own,” McVicar said. “And while it still is that, I also thought I could share it and use it to help other Cubs fans. From that point on, I knew I was also going to use this place for fundraisers.” Since 2014, McVicar has held several fundraising events at Club 400 with the goal of helping other Cubs fans. His first fundraiser at Club 400 was for

his friend, Nick Sheridan, who needed prosthetic limbs after losing parts of his legs and arms to bacterial meningitis. “I know [Cubs owner] Tom Ricketts, and he said he was on board for this event,” McVicar said. “So we ended up raising about $30,000 to get Nick new prosthetics.” To date, McVicar said he has helped raise more than $150,000 in less than

6th District candidates differ along party lines

Amanda Howland, Peter Roskam vying for seat in House of Representatives By KEVIN P. CRAVER Sixth Congressional District Republican incumbent Peter Roskam and Democratic challenger Amanda Howland are split for the most part along party lines when it comes to the issues in the Nov. 8 election. Roskam, a lawyer from Wheaton, is running for his sixth term representing the district in Congress. The district includes Algonquin Township, and much of Crystal Lake, Lake in the Hills, Algonquin, Cary and Fox River Grove as part of its comma-like curl through the Peter suburbs of Lake, Cook, Roskam Kane and DuPage counties. Roskam and Howland, a lawyer from rural Hawthorn Woods and a College of Lake County trustee, differ on how to attack the country’s national debt, which at $19.7 trillion divides to more than $60,600 for every American man, woman and child. Roskam said reforms are needed to preserve entitlement programs and “responsibly” balance the budget, while making changes over time to give people time to plan and adapt. “We must address the coming fiscal crisis now by making reforms that preserve the long-term health of our entitlement programs,” Roskam said. “And whether you like the idea of cutting government or not, the simple truth is we can’t get a handle on these problems without reducing spending in significant ways.” For Howland, who calls herself a fiscal conservative and social moderate, the tax code should be changed to strengthen the middle class and minimize “loopholes, tax havens and accounting gimmicks” that allow the wealthy to avoid taxes. She also wants to see student debt be addressed and altering what she called

Cold War-era defense spending. “For too long the government has shamefully disregarded future generations – maintaining outdated programs, funding wars ‘off-budget’ with hundreds of billions in deficit spending,” Howland said. “Whatever progress has been made, more must be done.” Both candidates split on what to do about problems with the Affordable Care Act, such as hefty rate increases and a limiting of options in the online marketplaces. McHenry County residents who buy through the marketplaces have one vendor to choose from next year, and rates for the silver median plan will increase an Amanda average of 30 percent – the Howland monthly cost of the bronze plan will increase about 47 percent. Howland wants the ACA reformed to address unintended problems such as high costs, rising premiums and high deductibles for people who cannot qualify for subsidies. She also said that unrestrained prescription drug costs need to be brought under control. “Eliminating the ACA is not the answer,” Howland said. “It has many excellent provisions and has provided health care for millions who were previously uninsured. We can’t take away this vital safety net now that we have it. Too many families will suffer.” Roskam wants the ACA scrapped and replaced. He helped author the GOP’s proposal to replace it, and has in the meantime proposed creating a single, nationwide administrative office to cut down on waste, and to provide data about what works and what does not. “Since the law’s passage in 2010, Americans have seen their health care costs skyrocket and their treatment choices limited,” Roskam said. “Many families in our district have even had their plans canceled altogether. In short,

Online Visit to learn more about the issues and candidates in the Nov. 8 election. far too many families in our community are paying more for less.” When it comes to immigration reform, Roskam said any proposed changes are mostly irrelevant until the U.S. can secure its borders and control who enters and exits. Any opportunity to create a better system, Roskam said, requires a “firm foundation of security.” “This isn’t just an economic and social issue – it’s also a matter of national security,” Roskam said. “In the wake of terrorist attacks in San Bernadino, California, Orlando, Florida, and around the globe, we need to take a long, hard look at our immigration policies and close loopholes that can be exploited by those who mean us harm.” Howland supports a path to citizenship for “responsible” illegal immigrants, and wants to put the onus of enforcement on those who knowingly hire them, but also supports a significant investment in border security. “Immigration reform should incorporate compassionate consideration, economic impact and stiff penalties for employers who knowingly hire undocumented workers,” Howland said. “Naturally, we must ensure we have a strong border, since we have every right and expectation that we will control who enters our country.” Both candidates found common ground with skepticism over the controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement with 11 other Pacific Rim countries, excluding China. Roskam opposes the TPP in its current form, while supporting trade in general. Howland, while supporting the idea of opening new markets and eliminating unfair tariffs against U.S. goods, said she is concerned about U.S. concessions, and cited promises of great benefits from previous trade pacts that she said ultimately failed to deliver. The rest of McHenry County is part of the 14th Congressional District, where incumbent Republican Randy Hultgren is running against Democratic opponent Jim Walz.



A secondary cold front will push through late this evening with a few clouds, but moisture is lacking so rain chances will remain very low. Temperatures will be mild before dropping quickly overnight. Fall-like weather will arrive Thursday and remain through early next week as a cool Canadian high pressure system dominates the area.

By HANNAH PROKOP ALGONQUIN – Sirens blared Tuesday in the parking lot at St. John’s Lutheran School in Algonquin. In the back of an Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire Protection District ambulance, nine kindergartners sat and listened to Battalion Chief John Greene explain the titles of “paramedic” and “firefighter.” “To me, it’s neat,” Greene said of doing community events. “It kind of rejuvenates your interest in the fire service.” St. John’s Lutheran School Principal Roger Kirsch said the school was hosting about 20 first responders so students could show their appreciation for them and learn about their jobs. “It’s a celebration of who these people are and what they do for us,” Kirsch said. About 70 students from preschoolers to eighth-graders went outside to see the squad cars, armored Humvee, fire engine and ambulance brought

WOODSTOCK – City police officers soon will add body cameras to their uniforms in a move intended to increase transparency and add a layer of support for both officers and the public. Woodstock City Council members on Tuesday voted unanimously to buy 28 body cameras for Woodstock Police Department officers for a total of nearly $32,000, to be offset with a $9,600 grant the department received in July. The cost will cover the implementation of the devices, including the necessary software and equipment from Minooka-based Battery Jack Inc., which also provides body camera services to the Harvard Police Department. Officers will receive training on the equipment and departmental policies for use of the cameras. In-car cameras currently record officer interactions, Woodstock Police Chief John Lieb said. The body cameras constantly record, but won’t retain what is captured unless the officer manually turns on the camera. After the camera is turned on, it will retain the previous 30 seconds of footage and continue to tape, City Manager Roscoe Stelford said. “All the systems offered prerecord,” he said. “As long as there is power

device and policy will dictate when the cameras must be activated, the police chief said. “In the general order, it will outline almost every instance that the officer actuates the camera,” Lieb said. The department has been working closely with the city of Harvard’s department, which recently implemented its own body camera pilot program. In Harvard, the guideline is to activate the camera every time an officer goes on a call, he said. “Not only is that in-car camera recording, but so is the body camera,” Lieb said. “So it captures response to the scene, getting out of the vehicle and the manner in which he handles the call.” Woodstock City Council member Mike Turner, who led the meeting in Mayor Brian Sager’s absence, said that while it’s impossible to predict the outcome of any new program, he felt it was a good move to make. “I think there is absolute support for this, and I see the benefits of it,” he said. “If there are any concerns, I would like to see them brought to us. I don’t fear this development. I actually welcome it, but I think we want to do it our way, do it the right way and trust the [department’s] judgment with putting this in place.”

Respect should be fundamental right The queen of soul, Aretha Franklin, famously sang about “R-E-S-P-E-C-T” and the need for it, crooning that her man should “find out what it means.” Sadly, in the world in which we live, respect is hard to come by. I’m reminded of this because this month marks both Domestic Violence Awareness Month and National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month. Readers of this column know that these are causes close to my heart. At their core, both come down to a matter of respect. Merriam-Webster defines “respect” as “a feeling or understanding that someone or something is important, serious, etc., and should be treated in an appropriate way.” Each and every one of us is worthy of respect, and that means each and every one of us should be treated “in an appropriate way.” However, it starts with us. We need to consider ourselves worthy of respect. That’s why bullying is so insidious. It has a terrible way of making those

who are bullied believe that somehow they are not worthy of respect, that they are nothing and nobody and bringing abuse upon themselves. But that’s a lie, a no good, very bad lie that must be rejected. If we see someone being bullied, we need to step in to stop it. We need to reassure those who are bullied that they are, indeed, worthy of respect. If we don’t, then we aren’t showing them – or ourselves – the proper respect. Chances are, too, that a bully becomes a bully because he or she doesn’t have self-respect. That’s why one strategy for dealing with a bully is to ask him or her what’s wrong. Something must be if there’s a need to go pick on someone else. More information on preventing

HANNAH PROKOP CARY – About two weeks after it opened, Cary’s first Starbucks was damaged after a car drove into it, Cary Deputy Police Chief Jim Fillmore said. About 6:47 p.m. Monday, a white Hyundai crashed through a window and into the west side of the building at 620 Route 14. The driver, 55-year-old Hoon J. Jeong, was cited for failure to reduce speed to avoid a crash, Fillmore said.

Continued from page A8 bullying, coping strategies and what we all can do to get involved can be found online at www.stopbullying. gov. Unfortunately, this cycle of bullying finds its way into adult relationships, too. Without self-respect, we can allow ourselves to be treated in “inappropriate” ways. We settle for relationships that makes us feel bad about ourselves. We believe that we aren’t worthy of the love and respect that others around us have. Again, that’s a lie that must be rejected. No one should stand for abuse, whether physical, emotional or financial. We all deserve better. We all our worthy of respect. We are valuable and important, and no one should make us feel otherwise. Lack of self-respect can lead to abusive behaviors, too. That’s why Turning Point of McHenry County, the agency in our area addressing

domestic violence issues, offers programs to help abusers as well as their victims. Domestic violence isn’t just a problem that happens elsewhere; it happens right here in McHenry County. To learn more, visit As adults, we have a responsibility to model appropriate behavior to the children around us. Too bad those who are seeking this country’s highest office are missing the mark. Anger at the status quo is no reason to resort to name-calling and bullying tactics. Neither is retaliation. However, we don’t have to follow their lead; we must not. As human beings, we all are worthy of respect. And it we owe it to each other to treat each other that way, too. Even when we disagree.

He said the car was parked in the lot and the driver’s foot slipped off the brake and hit the accelerator. There were no passengers in the car, Fillmore said, and he did not know Jeong’s address. Cary Fire Protection District Chief Jeff Macko said the driver and one person inside the Starbucks were checked at the scene, and no one was taken to the hospital. Fillmore said that according to Cary building and zoning staff, there was damage to the floor and window of Starbucks, but not its structure.

“My goal is to help raise $1,000,000, hopefully within the next 10 years, for Cubs fans in need.” Stewart McVicar, McHenry County resident

Photos by H. Rick Bamman -

ABOVE: As a young Chicago Cubs fan Stewart McVicar cut his “Die-Hard Cub Fan Club” membership card in half after the team had several losses. RIGHT: Cubs’ first baseman Anthony Rizzo left a comment and his signature on the wall of McVicar’s 400 Club in his McHenry County home.


Continued from page A3 three years. “My goal is to help raise $1,000,000, hopefully within the next 10 years, for Cubs fans in need,” McVicar said. The last fundraiser McVicar hosted was for Josh Passfield, who has cere-

bral palsy and is quadriplegic. McVicar said he raised more than $16,000 from that event, which featured Hall of Famer Andre Dawson. “We’ve also held fundraisers here for the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation and the Wood Family Foundation, where Anthony Rizzo and Kerry Wood both came out for those special events,” McVicar said.

McVicar, who owns HVAC company Specialized Testing and Balancing Inc. in McHenry, said he is going to launch a website,, within the next month for future fundraisers. “I want all the Cubs fans to know there are others who need help and end up doing something about it,” McVicar said. Although McVicar has the ultimate

man cave to watch the games at, he is planning to attend every Cubs game in the NLCS and every World Series game if the North Siders advance. “I don’t want to miss such a special opportunity if they do move on and end up winning the World Series,” McVicar said. “I do think they’re going to win it all this year,” McVicar added.

The Northwest Herald sent candidates in contested races questionnaires seeking their views on a variety of issues. Below are responses to four questions from McHenry County state’s attorney candidates. Their responses to four other questions appeared in Tuesday’s Northwest Herald. Visit to read all responses in this race and other contested races on McHenry County ballots. – Dan McCaleb



What role should the state’s attorney’s office play in creating more efficiencies in the criminal justice system and what do you propose? The State’s Attorney’s Office should be a leader in creating efficiencies in the criminal justice system. Jail and prisons currently account for the largest expenditures in the justice system. Limiting the incarceration of non-violent offenders who do not pose a threat to the community and who are not a flight risk is one of the best way to cut costs. As state’s attorney, I will ensure that we seek prison only for violent or dangerous offenders that pose a clear risk to public safety. Moreover, I will end the practice of contesting bond reductions for nonviolent, low-risk defendants who do not pose a threat to the community or their families and who are likely to receive a probationary sentence together with appropriate counseling and/or treatment, as opposed to time in custody. Further, I am currently working with court administration and the Circuit Clerk to implement software that would make all courtrooms and court filings paperless. Fully electronic courtrooms save significant time and costs associated with printing, mailing, filing, and document retrieval. It’s also environmentally smart!

Is incarcerating suspects for user-level possession of narcotics effective overall? Why or why not? Incarcerating nonviolent first-time offenders serves only one group: the people who earn a living running our prisons. I join my opponent in rejecting the notion that sending nonviolent offenders to prison serves any purpose.

Generally no. There are hundreds of statistics demonstrating that some form of probation and mandated treatment is a far less expensive and more effective criminal sentence than incarceration. In most instances and in recognition of the fact that addiction can, in part, be explained as a disease, it is also more humane. In answering the question, however, it’s important to broaden the focus and consider the wider ramifications of drug use. Let’s take heroin for example. A user’s very first dose of heroin 5-10 mg costs only $10. However, long-term users may need as much as 2000 mg to get a comparable high, which costs about $2,000 a day. Because addicts have difficulty maintaining steady employment, they generally must commit crimes (e.g. sell drugs, prostitution, steal, rob) to avoid the torture of withdrawal. The heroin addict who is simply a “user,” therefore, is often a grave danger to society. Overall, recovery and helping people reclaim their lives should be the goal. All user-level defendants should have one or more opportunities to avail themselves of treatment options, especially Drug Court. However, for those who have demonstrated an unwillingness or inability to stay clean, public safety may demand incarceration.

Do people with limited financial means get equal treatment in the criminal justice system? Explain. Hell no. When our current state’s attorney was charged with a crime, he hired the best lawyer that he could find, and he got fantastic results. He got the charges dismissed. It is doubtful that a poor person with limited means would have received the same treatment. In addition, persons without means are less likely to post bond on minor offenses and, therefore, more likely to get a worse result. A person out on bond can work, take care of their family, or attend school while awaiting trial. A person who cannot post $100 to get out of jail will sit there until the State is willing to make a “time served” offer and immediately take that rather than wait the 90-180 days it takes to get a trial setting. True justice is neither affected nor swayed by a person’s finances. My opponent is born from an administration that not only fails to understand that, but has taken advantage of the fact.

In McHenry County, my experience has been yes. Outcomes for indigent defendants represented by the capable and experienced Public Defender’s Office and defendants who can afford private counsel are generally comparable. We, at the SAO, consider it our solemn, ethical responsibility to make decisions based on what is right and fair; whether defense counsel is appointed or “highly paid” does not enter into our decisions. If a defendant, in consultation with his/her attorney, is unwilling to accept the SA’s offer regarding an agreed upon sentence in lieu of trial, the SA will take the case to trial and, mostly, win. Since 2014, we have tried over 60 felony jury trials, mostly against private attorneys, and lost only three. While research is mixed, there are a number of studies that support my experience. One recent study by Richard Hartley found that in Cook County, there was generally no difference between public defenders and private attorneys regarding criminal case outcomes.

What other initiatives do you plan if you are elected state’s attorney? Integrity. The State’s Attorney’s Office is currently reeling from overturned murder cases (two last year alone), political prosecutions (including the former coroner, whose case was dismissed), puzzling decisions (including refusing to charge a Woodstock police officer who sought illicit pictures from an underage minor) and a frightening lack of transparency with respect to its own poor decision making. How much taxpayer money has been wasted for no good reason? The office lacks institutional integrity and is making too many of the wrong headlines. When elected I will change the culture of office. I will eliminate the poor decision makers and other employees who cannot live up to a code of conduct that demands accountability, professional work, and respect to law enforcement at all times.

First, I will cut the budget 10%. In order to fulfill this commitment without jeopardizing public safety or the administration of justice, I will only cut 2 criminal attorneys positions, one investigator position, and two administrative staff positions. I will also bring the nearly $200,000 of legal work the office currently contracts out to private attorneys in-house. Second, I will establish a Sex Crimes Unit. From my work as a prosecutor, I have witnessed the heartbreaking and enduring trauma sex offenders inflict on their victims, especially children. I recognize the sensitivity required and the importance of prosecuting sex offenders, I will appoint two full-time, seasoned felony prosecutors to specialize in these cases. Third, I will start a program, as has been done successfully in other jurisdictions in the country, that calls for cooperation between local hospitals and law enforcement to obtain judicially issued search warrants to obtain blood samples in DUI cases. The investigating officer with the assistance of medical professionals will be able to draw the blood of DUI suspects who refuse to submit to a Breathalyzer. This initiative will be directed at repeat DUI offenders.

• Wednesday, October 19, 2016

As I mentioned [in an earlier question], I would streamline the system so that defendants were put to a decision point earlier in the process. By providing the evidence against them, including video evidence, and a proposed disposition of the case on the first court date many of these cases can be resolved on the first day, instead of taking very valuable court time at subsequent dates. This is the way it works in many other jurisdictions, and it boggles the mind why the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office (including my opponent, who is currently the first assistant) is so inefficient and so far behind the times. Secondly, I would give authority to assistant state’s attorneys to dispose of minor cases without seeking supervisor review. In many cases, I would waive the jail penalty when it is blatantly obvious that the judge would not sentence the defendant to jail (an 18-year-old kid with a minor infraction, for example). This would disqualify the case for public defender representation and place the case on the fast track effectively saving money from the Public Defender budget and the State’s Attorney’s budget.

Police investigate death in Sun City neighborhood HANNAH PROKOP HUNTLEY – Huntley police are investigating a death that occurred Tuesday morning in Sun City Huntley, Deputy Police Chief Mike Klunk said. About 5:15 a.m., Huntley police received a call from a Sun City resident saying his 42-year-old son was distraught and suicidal, Klunk said. Police searched the area of Neighborhood 27 in Sun City after the son left his father’s residence, Klunk said. Klunk said police found the son’s body about 6:30 a.m. in the backyard of a residence in the 12100 block of Latham Trail. The man was pronounced dead

on the scene, Klunk said, and police saw cuts on his body. Police said there was no danger to the public during the search, and the neighborhood where they were investigating reopened about 1:45 p.m. An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday morning with the Kane County Coroner’s Office, Klunk said, and will help determine whether the death was self-inflicted or something else. Huntley police are not yet releasing the name or address of the 42-year-old. Huntley Fire Protection District, the Major Investigation Assistance Team, Kane County coroner and Kane County Sheriff’s Office also responded, Klunk said.

Not voting is not an option Many citizens feel voting won’t make a difference. In 2008, our presidential election had the highest U.S. turnout since the 1968 elections, and yet more than four in 10 Americans age 18 or older still stayed home, according to Daniel Marans from the Huffington Post. Before you wash your hands of this right, consider that it’s not just the president on the ballot. How much the next president can do depends on whether his or her party controls either the Senate or the House. Consider that right now, according to the Cook Political Report, there are eight Senate seats that are too close to call and completely up to the voters, and one is in Illinois. We the people make many decisions with our voting rights. For example, four states have legalized recreational marijuana in the past four years through ballots that did not require any new state legislation, or any action by Congress or the president. There are many very important state and local officeholders on the ballot along with local issues and referendums that directly affect us here in

CHAMBER NEWS Donna Sullivan McHenry County. A 2012 study conducted by economists from Dartmouth and Yale found that elected officials transferred more funding to areas where people bothered to show up. In the 2012 election, 80 percent of the people with a yearly income of $75,000 or higher voted, compared with 60 percent of those earning less than $50,000. So please vote, and if you can’t decide on one of the two major political party candidates and if you just cannot bear the thought of voting for either of the two major parties’ presidential nominees, picking a third party is a perfectly valid option.

Message and data rates apply. “It’s fueled by alcohol, and he starts a fight with her,” Gara said. Gara said Price allegedly slapped and kicked the woman and then grabbed her by her hair and dragged her around the floor in their living room, knocking her glasses off her face. As she got up and attempted to retrieve a spare pair of glasses from her bedroom, the woman felt a push and fell down into her bedroom, Gara said during opening statements. Gara said Price pushed her onto her bed, took off her robe and nightgown and attempted to force sexual contact with the woman even though she told him to stop and attempted to resist. Price also allegedly knelt on the woman’s shoulders, including the arm she thought was broken from the fall, Gara said. Later on, Price told the woman she wanted to go to Meijer to get more al-

cohol so she drove him to the store, Gara said. Once they returned home, the woman asked Price to take her to the immediate care facility in Huntley, and he eventually agreed and dropped her off before he headed back to the residence, she said. The woman testified that she initially told a few hospital employees she fell before she met with Jason Carman, who worked as a certified nurse practitioner. She said she told Carman her boyfriend beat her up. Carman testified Tuesday that the woman was upset and distraught. When he completed his physical examination, he diagnosed that she had broken the upper part of her arm and said the injuries he observed in 2013 were consistent with a battery or domestic battery. Price’s attorney, Mark Facchini, argued in opening statements that the woman’s account of the incident was not true and she contradicted several statements she made between the time of the incident and when she took the stand Tuesday. “When you tell the truth, you don’t have anything to remember. [She] has a lot to remember,” Facchini said in

opening statements. Facchini said his client never pushed the woman and she in fact told police in 2013 that she tripped while heading into her bedroom. He said the woman never told hospital employees that she had been sexually assaulted, nor did she make any attempt to alert anyone what was going on or escape when she waited in the car for Price to return from Meijer. The woman testified that she did not alert anyone while in the parking lot of Meijer because she was scared and didn’t know what to do. “She makes no attempt to get anyone to help her get away from someone who raped and beat her,” Facchini said. Vanessa Sheehan, who also represents Price, said the woman testified that Price had “kicked and slapped her around” but did not tell police that at the time of the incident. Sheehan also asked the woman why she didn’t report the alleged sexual assault to the doctors and she said it was because they didn’t ask. The trial, with McHenry County Judge Sharon Prather presiding, is expected to last through Thursday.

WOODSTOCK – Prosecutors said a woman living with James Price told him she would say she fell down on the way to the hospital after he physically and sexually assaulted her at their home in March 2013. Price, 58, of Lake in the Hills is on trial this week on charges of aggravated criminal sexual assault, a Class X felony; aggravated criminal sexual abuse, a Class 2 felony; and aggravated domestic battery, a Class 2 felony. These charges stem from an incident that allegedly occurred March 2, 2013. During opening statements Tuesday, McHenry County Assistant State’s Attorney Rita Gara said the woman, who was then 61 years old, and Price were roommates and friends who lived together for a few years. The woman paid rent to Price and she agreed to clean and take care of the house when he worked. Gara said the defendant had been drinking the night before after he got home from working out of the state. He was tired of the house being dirty and got into an argument with the woman.

STATE State agency: Training video porn from YouTube glitch By JOHN O’CONNOR The Associated Press

SPRINGFIELD – At the end of a brief online video promoting an Illinois agency’s training summit, the picture faded to black and, several seconds later, a pornographic clip appeared. Emails obtained by The Associated Press show the Illinois Emergency Management Agency scrambling in late August to disable the video, and its chief of staff ordering an investigation into how the salacious footage was added. Officially, the agency – whose conference last month included a session on cyber security – insists no one “hijacked” the website to tag the lewd material onto the end of Director James Joseph’s video invitation promoting the summit in Springfield. Agency spokeswoman Patti Thompson blames the foul-up on an unfortunate, but random, circumstance created by YouTube, the platform storing the IEMA clip, which ultimately was viewed more than 900 times.

Man seeks declaration of innocence in 1957 DeKalb County slaying

SYCAMORE – A man whose conviction in the 1957 kidnapping and slaying of a 7-year-old was overturned by a DeKalb County judge earlier this year is asking to be declared innocent of the crime. Attorneys from a free legal clinic at the University of Chicago representing the wrongfully convicted filed a petition in DeKalb County requesting a court hearing for Jack McCullough, the Daily Chronicle reported. McCullough was convicted in 2012 and sentenced to life in

According to the emails, disclosed to the AP under the Illinois Freedom of Information Act, the 2-minute, 17-second video featuring Joseph and Assistant Director Joe Klinger was completed by the first week of August. On Aug. 29, chief of staff Jennifer Ricker emailed Joseph, Klinger and others indicating that she had instructed web developer Brad Brooks to disable the invite.

“At the end of the video, it goes black and then starts playing porn,” Ricker wrote. “Once the video is down, I have instructed Brad to then start investigating how this occurred.” Less than an hour later, IEMA chief information officer Sreekumar Govindan reported, “It’s back on!

The Coast Guard responded after a friend of the man told Evanston police about the broken mast. He got a text from the man reporting the trouble.

The man declined medical help.

Initially, Thompson said that under YouTube’s design, the pornographic feature automatically loaded as the random “next choice” following the IEMA video. Later, she said that when Brooks responded to Ricker’s order, he found that what followed IEMA’s video was a choice of four other videos, featured in “thumbnail” photos. Thompson said Brooks didn’t review the offerings for lewd material. Rather, he unchecked a box allowing suggested follow-up videos and set the system to return the IEMA video to its beginning, Thompson said. YouTube concedes it’s possible objectionable material was posted – users upload 400 hours of new content every minute – but said the company urges viewers to “flag” such visuals so that company monitors can immediately evaluate them and remove them if they violate standards. Thompson said the agency was alerted to the added footage by a viewer who reported it to a regional IEMA office. That was the only complaint the agency received, she said. “We’d been told that this person pulled it up and this porn video started playing,” Thompson said. “I assume it was just from the report that came in and not from anything we saw.”

Abbott, St. Jude to sell products to Terumo Corp.

NEW YORK – St. Jude Medical Inc. and Abbott Laboratories have agreed to sell portions of their businesses to medical device maker Terumo Corp. for $1.12 billion in hopes that will

clear the way for their buyout deal. North Chicago, Illinois-based Abbott is buying St. Paul, Minnesota-based St. Jude for $19.3 billion, but the deal faces scrutiny by antitrust regulators. The medical device makers are shedding some units and products to meet regulatory approval for the deal to close. The sale to Japan-based Terumo includes St. Jude’s Angio-SealT and FemosealT vascular closure products and Abbott’s Vado Steerable Sheath. Abbott will retain its vascular closure products, which include the Perclose ProGlide Suture-Mediated Closure System, StarClose SE Vascular Closure System and Prostar XL Percutaneous Vascular Surgical System. Abbott expects the St. Jude buyout to close in the fourth quarter.

NATION & WORLD BRIEFS Earth’s record heat streak building, killing all nine people ends but warming remains on board.

WASHINGTON – Earth’s 16-month sizzling streak of record high temperatures is finally over, according to one group of federal meteorologists. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said last month’s 60.6 degrees (15.9 Celsius) was merely the second hottest September on record for the globe. That’s ever so slightly cooler – a few hundredths of a degree – than the record set in 2015. But it was quite a bit warmer – 1.6 degrees (0.9 Celsius) – than the 20th-century average. Global average temperatures include both land and sea surface readings. And while oceans were cooling off a tad, global land temperatures in September still set a record high, NOAA climate scientist Jessica Blunden said. It was an unusually hot month in much of Europe, Asia, Africa and North America.

The four-member safety board also blamed Execuflight, a Fort Lauderdale, Florida, aviation company that operated the jet, for inadequate pilot training and aircraft maintenance and the Federal Aviation Administration for failing to provide proper oversight of the company. The pilot and his captain in charge of the flight were carrying seven employees of a Florida commercial real estate company from Dayton, Ohio, to Akron. The Nov. 10, 2015, crash occurred less than two miles from Akron Fulton International Airport.

Obama to Trump: ‘Stop whining’ about election The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – “Stop whining,” President Barack Obama rebuked Donald Trump on Tuesday, speaking out as seldom before on next month’s election and chiding the Republican for sowing suspicion about the integrity of America’s presidential vote. Obama also accused Trump of cozying up to Russia’s Vladimir Putin to a degree “unprecedented in American politics.” The president said Trump’s intensifying pre-emptive warnings about voter fraud are unheard of in modern politics. The rhetoric is not based on any evidence, Obama said, but is simply aimed at discrediting the outcome before the first votes are counted. “You start whining before the game is even over?” Obama said at a Rose Garden news conference. “If whenever things are going badly for you and you lose you start blaming somebody else – then you don’t have what it takes to be in this job.” Campaigning in Colorado, the GOP candidate repeated his assertions about “corrupt” elections but did not respond directly to the president. Trump vowed to “drain the swamp” in Washington, and for the first time promised to push for a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress. The president’s remarks came as Trump and his Republican allies look for ways to regain momentum after a damaging few weeks in the campaign. Heading into the third and final debate Wednesday night, Trump is trailing in the polls and running out of time for a comeback before Nov. 8. Obama waded into the race to elect a successor, speaking at the White House where he was hosting his final state visit. Italy’s Prime Minister Matteo Renzi at his side, the president initially said he would

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks Tuesday at a campaign rally in Colorado Springs, Colo. pull his punches when it came to politics, respecting the official setting. But when he was asked about Trump’s rhetoric, he hardly held back. “I would invite Mr. Trump to stop whining and go try to make his case to get votes,” he said. The GOP candidate has ramped up warnings about potential fraud. That’s drawing criticism not only from Democrats, but from his own party, particularly the state and county officials who run local elections, who fear the rhetoric will give losers license to dispute any results. “They even want to try and rig the election at the polling booth, where so many cities are corrupt and you see that and voter fraud is all too common,” Trump said at a rally in Colorado Springs. Independent studies and election officials in both parties say they see no evidence that voter fraud – individuals impersonating others to cast ballots – is a widespread problem. Asked about Trump’s claims on Tuesday, running mate Mike Pence dodged and suggested Trump’s point actually was about the “overwhelming bias in the national media.” Pence spoke after touring the burned-out offices of the

Republican Party in Hillsborough, North Carolina. The GOP office was firebombed over the weekend in what Pence called an “act of political terrorism.” Trump pointed at Clinton supporters, but Pence did not assign blame. Police are investigating. Clinton held no public events Tuesday while she prepared for the debate. She has her own troubles and is certain to be asked about the latest revelations involving her use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state. New FBI documents released Monday revived questions about whether she received classified information and whether State Department allies sought to protect her from criticism over the email arrangement. The FBI notes show a State Department official asked the FBI to lower the classification of a sensitive email found on her server. The email was related to the attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya. The documents revealed discussion of a “quid pro quo” in trying to get the email reclassified, although it’s not clear who first raised the issue. Both State and FBI officials deny any bargaining took place, and the email was not declassified.

Social Security recipients to get tiny increase By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER The Associated Press

WASHINGTON – Millions of Social Security recipients and federal retirees will get a 0.3 percent increase in monthly benefits next year, the fifth year in a row that older Americans will have to settle for historically low raises. The adjustment adds up to a monthly increase of less than $4 a month for an average recipient. The cost-of-living adjustment, announced by the government Tuesday, will affect more than 70 million people – about 1 in 5 Americans. For recipients, the average monthly Social Security payment now is $1,238. Unfortunately for some seniors, even the small increase will probably be wiped out by an expected increase in Medicare Part B premiums, which are usually deducted from Social Security payments. By law, rising premiums for most Medicare recipients cannot exceed their Social Security cost-of-living increase. That’s known as the “hold harmless” provision. However, new enrollees and high-income retirees are not covered by that provision, so they could face higher Medicare premiums, which will be

AP file photo

The Social Security Administration’s main campus is seen Jan. 11, 2013, in Woodlawn, Md. announced later this year. There was no Social Security benefit increase this year, and next year’s will be small because inflation is low, driven in part by cheaper fuel prices. The low inflation rate should help keep some older folks’ bills from rising very rapidly. Don’t tell that to Millicent Graves, a retired veterinary technician, who said

Medicare and supplemental insurance premiums eat up nearly a third of her $929 monthly Social Security payment. The 72-year-old from Williamsburg, Virginia, said her insurance premiums went up by $46.50 this year, and her cable TV, internet and phone bill went up, too. “I just lose and lose and lose and lose,” Graves said.

More than 60 million retirees, disabled workers, spouses and children get Social Security benefits. The COLA also affects benefits for about 4 million disabled veterans, 2.5 million federal retirees and their survivors, and more than 8 million people who get Supplemental Security Income, the disability program for the poor. Many people who get SSI also receive Social Security. Since 2008, the COLA has been above 2 percent only once, in 2011. It’s been zero three times. “This loss of anticipated retirement income compounds every year, causing people to spend through retirement savings far more quickly than planned,” Mary Johnson of the Senior Citizens League said. “Over the course of a 25or 30-year retirement, it reduces anticipated Social Security income by tens of thousands of dollars.” The cost-of-living adjustment is based on a broad measure of prices generated by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. It measures price changes for food, housing, clothing, transportation, energy, medical care, recreation and education. If prices go up, benefits go up. If prices drop or stay flat, benefits stay the same.

Speak up to safeguard What makes elders from abuse Gary Lang unique? SPONSORED BY

By Gina Kraman Frail older adults who can’t see or hear well, or have memory problems, may become easy targets for abuse. The National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA) says, “Mistreatment of the elderly can be physical, sexual, psychological, or financial abuse.” “Abusers of elder adults are both men and women, and may be family members, friends, or ‘trusted others.’ Elder abuse is any knowing, intentional, or negligent act by a caregiver or any other person, that causes harm or serious risk of harm to a vulnerable adult,” explains the U.S. Administration on Aging. What are the warning signs to watch for, especially if your older loved ones are in the care of others? The National Institute on Aging (NIA) says: “You may notice that the older adult has trouble sleeping, seems depressed or confused, or loses

weight for no apparent reason. He or she may act agitated, become violent or withdrawn, and stop participating in activities previously enjoyed. They may have unexplained bruises, burns, or scars. They’re messy, with unwashed hair or dirty clothes. And, they develop bed sores or other preventable conditions.” Abuse may even come from another resident, and not an employee, in a nursing home or assisted living facility. “If you see signs of abuse, try talking with the older person to learn what’s going on. Most importantly, get help,” urges the NIA. “The Administration for Community Living recommends that people report abuse to authorities, get help, and learn state laws that cover abuse and neglect. If you think someone’s in urgent danger, call 911 or your local police.” The NIA acknowledges that caring for an older adult can be stressful, and urges caregivers to take care of themselves with proper rest and nutrition, to be able to care patiently for others.

BAGHDAD – On the eerily quiet streets of Mosul, fighters from the Islamic State group are killing suspected spies, blocking roads and planting bombs ahead of a showdown with Iraqi forces. Residents who have endured more than two years of militant rule describe a city under siege, and they say a new sense of terror has set in since Iraq announced the start of a long-anticipated operation to liberate its second-largest city. Three residents who spoke with The Associated Press by telephone described a ghost town where people only venture out to buy basic goods that are increasingly running low. They said large groups of IS militants have left the city in recent weeks, but those who remain have become increasingly brutal, killing anyone suspected of trying to communicate with the outside world. For that reason, the residents spoke on the condition of anonymity, fearing for their safety. “The situation inside Mosul is terrifying,” said one of them, a merchant. He said he has stocked food, water and cooking gas for 40 days and bought an oven to bake bread.

cellphone. A few days earlier, five men accused of spying were killed by a firing squad in a public square. Mosul is completely dark at night because IS forbids the use of any generators, fearing the lights could draw airstrikes. “Every minute passes like a year,” a father of three said. Residents heard about the start of the offensive on the radio, he said, with the city rattled by airstrikes on its outskirts. “We have mixed feelings. We are happy that we will eventually be liberated from Daesh and afraid of what will happen afterward,” the father said, using the Arabic acronym for IS. “The recent airstrikes are really shaking the ground and houses,” another resident said. “My wife prays and recites verses from the holy Quran when airstrikes start, while children cry. We are afraid that one of these airstrikes might hit us.” Fearing a mass exodus from the city, which is still home to 1 million people, the coalition has dropped leaflets telling people to stay inside. Human-rights groups worry many will run from Mosul to other areas held by IS out of fear they could be treated even worse by their purported liberators.

Educate yourselves before vote

Stay home, don’t vote – unless you earn the responsibility through research TV celebrity Mike Rowe – of Ford trucks, dirty jobs and doing it because somebody’s gotta – recently was asked to use his celebrity to encourage people to get out and vote. He declined. His reasons should give us all pause. “Regardless of their political agenda, my celebrity pals are fundamentally mistaken about our ‘civic duty’ to vote. There is simply no such thing. Voting is a right, not a duty, and not a moral obligation. Like all rights, the right to vote comes with some responsibilities, but let’s face it – the bar is not set very high,” he said. Simply said, you shouldn’t encourage someone to vote just to vote. Educating oneself about candidates and issues is a time-consuming task that should not be reduced to a whim inspired by a Hollywood personality’s earnest plea. Our initial reasons for creating a public education system were so we would produce voters capable of evaluating and understanding the choices they were making at the ballot box. Thomas Jefferson wrote in support of public education that: “The functionaries of every government have propensities to command at will the liberty and property of their constituents. There is no safe deposit for these but with the people themselves; nor can they be safe with them without information. Where the press is free, and every man able to read, all is safe.” So despite past exhortation on these pages to get out and vote, you won’t be hearing that this year. Instead, consider this the campaign to get out and read, and then only after you have invested the time to understand the issues and to weigh the choices, should you get out and vote. That will mean you don’t choose someone based on who you think will win. You won’t rule out other-party candidates because they might help or hurt a major party candidate. You won’t just pick the lesser of evils. You will make informed choices because you have earned that responsibility by doing your homework and weighing the information against your values and understanding. You have 23 days to get busy.

Finally, a database on shootings The Justice Department is moving to fill a giant hole in its accounting of shootings and other violent encounters between police officers and civilians across the country. The complete absence of an official national database has led to lots of speculation and potentially rash assumptions about the rate of police-involved shootings, particularly involving minorities. FBI Director James Comey said the information void is embarrassing for his agency, acknowledging sometimes officials must rely on databases compiled by The Washington Post and The Guardian when tracking violent encounters. The Justice Department now will compile its own database. It’s about time. Ever since the August 2014 death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, police-involved shootings have been the focal point of national debate about perceived police bias against

minority members, particularly blacks. The absence of a federal database has contributed to wild speculation and assertions about whether such incidents are on the rise. Public trust in community police departments depends on accurate data. If, in fact, certain departments have a higher rate of violent encounters with minorities, a statistical database should document it. The database, along with substantiating material from dashboard and body cameras, also is the best way for police departments to defend themselves if the evidence directly refutes the publicly held assumption of bias. Public and FBI reliance on a newspaper database, no matter how authoritative, is a sorry substitute for official data. And significant controversy has swirled around the Post’s database, which was launched in 2015. A Post analysis showed 1,502 people had been shot and killed by on-duty police

officers between Jan. 1, 2015, and July 10. Whites accounted for 732 of the deaths, 381 were black, and 382 were of another or unknown race. The analysis belied the notion more blacks are being killed by police than whites. But, as it noted, when the numbers are computed by proportion to the total population, blacks are 2.5 times more likely to be shot and killed by police officers than whites. The challenges are formidable to produce a user-friendly set of statistics that can generalize in numbers the complex story that unfolds whenever a violent encounter occurs between police officers and civilians. Numbers rarely tell the full story. Finding the right way to reflect the truth in data won’t be easy. Regardless of what emerges, nothing substitutes for the facts verified as accurate and official by the Justice Department.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Library maintenance critical

To the Editor: As a former employee of the Crystal Lake Public Library in the maintenance department from November 2003 until December 31, 2011, the building is a disaster. We duct taped and jerry-rigged things to make it work. The heating and air conditioning system is so old parts cannot be had. The light system is bad, and lights are no longer made. The north porch is settling. Every spring and summer, curbs, sidewalks and porches had to be repaired. There are building leaks when it rains. The parking lot settled. The sidewalk on the north side is at parking lot level. This is only a few things, and all this after project Shoehorn in 2006. If this is what the people want, vote no. Vote yes, otherwise in 10 more years, it will be a pile of rubble that can’t be repaired. I vote yes. Ray Rudden Crystal Lake

VIEWS Rep. David McSweeney retired teachers and administrators. In 2005, the Illinois General Assembly passed a law prohibiting school districts from inflating teachers’ salaries as a way of increasing their retirement benefits. However, some school districts have found a way to get around the 2005 law. Instead of directly boosting teacher salaries, school districts are paying bonuses to retired educators. Those cash payouts are cleverly set up to make it as difficult as possible for taxpayers

How can you explain Clinton?

To the Editor: A letter writer Oct. 7 wondered how

to follow the money. Some of the payouts are enormous – as high as $60,000 or more. Those bonus payments come from the property tax money school districts collect. Wonder why property taxes are so high in Illinois? As a response to the recent news coverage of these cash payouts, I have introduced legislation (House Bill 6613) to ban suburban and downstate school districts from making bonus payouts to retired teachers and administrators. Teachers provide a tremendous service for their communities and they deserve the utmost respect for the hard work they do. There is nothing at all wrong with school districts

offering competitive salary packages to attract the best and brightest teachers to their school districts. However, the idea of providing cash payouts to administrators and teachers after they have retired is simply not a responsible use of taxpayers’ dollars. Teachers and administrators have pensions so there is no need for taxpayers to provide them with a cash windfall after they have already retired. It is time for school districts to make sure they are using taxpayer dollars wisely. We need to pass House Bill 6613 as soon as possible.

Property taxes remain one of the top concerns among Illinois citizens. Despite the outcry for property tax relief, though, little has been done to address these concerns. I have sponsored many property tax relief bills and have voted more than 20 times to reduce property taxes, but the General Assembly still has not adopted comprehensive property tax relief legislation. The comprehensive property tax reduction bill we need may be delayed at the moment, but that should not stop us from taking steps to prevent property taxes from going up. One such measure is legislation I have introduced to stop school districts from making cash payments to

SAN FRANCISCO – Several angry Volkswagen owners told a federal judge on Tuesday that a $10 billion settlement does not adequately compensate them for the automaker’s emissions cheating scandal, part of a vocal minority who objected to the deal as hundreds of thousands of others signed up for payments. U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer will determine whether the settlement is fair to consumers and should receive final approval. He said he was “strongly inclined” to approve it but would make a final decision by Oct. 25, giving him time to consider the owners’ objections and whether he should recommend any changes. “We got played the fool,” Mark Dietrich, an Audi owner from San Francisco, told the judge earlier at a hearing in San Francisco. “This settlement does not go far enough.” Dietrich demanded the full purchase price of his car as well as part of his registration fee. The settlement calls for the German automaker to spend up to $10 billion to buy back or repair about 475,000 Volkswagens and Audi vehicles with 2-liter diesel engines and pay their owners an additional $5,100 to $10,000 each. Any repair options have yet to be finalized. It also includes $4.7 billion for unspecified environmental mitigation to make up for the excess pollution and to promote zero-emissions vehicles. The combined $14.7 billion deal would be the largest auto-scandal settlement in

Several angry Volkswagen owners told a federal judge on Tuesday that a $10 billion settlement does not adequately compensate them for the automaker’s emissions cheating scandal. U.S. history. Attorneys who helped negotiate it said it was fair and had received support from the vast majority of eligible car owners. Volkswagen’s lawyer said Tuesday that it was a good deal for buyers and would help the company regain people’s trust. But Blair Stewart, a Volkswagen owner from Palo Alto, said the company engaged in a “program of deception” that should not go unpunished. More than a dozen people spoke against the settlement at the hearing, among them

people who sold their vehicles and objected that the new owner would get a windfall in the deal. The scandal erupted in September 2015 when the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency said Volkswagen had fitted many of its cars with software to fool emissions tests, putting dirty vehicles on the road. Car owners and the U.S. Department of Justice sued. The software recognized when the cars were being tested on a treadmill and turned on pollution controls. The controls were turned off when the cars

returned to the road. The EPA alleged the scheme let the cars spew more than 40 times the allowable limit of nitrogen oxide, which can cause respiratory problems in people. Robert Giuffra, an attorney for Volkswagen, said the deal includes compromises but provides “massive relief” to consumers. “This settlement is something that I think is very good for consumers,” he said. “It’s good for the environment, and it’s a way for Volkswagen to regain the trust of its customers, the American people, regulators and do right by the environment.” As of last week, more than 330,000 people had signed up for settlement benefits, with about 3,200 opting out, said Elizabeth Cabraser, the plaintiffs’ lead attorney. She said the deal’s buyback option would give consumers the “retail replacement value” of their vehicles. “This was a broken situation. It was broken for the environment. It was broken for consumers,” Cabraser said. “I think we’ve all, including Volkswagen – on the 2 liters – put this back together again.” Volkswagen still faces potentially billions more in fines and penalties and possible criminal charges.

ST. LOUIS – Ninety-year-old rock ’n’ roll legend Chuck Berry is set to release his first new studio album in more than 35 years. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that Berry’s album, titled “Chuck,” will be available in 2017. The album was recorded in St. Louis-area studios and will feature mostly original work by Berry, who turned 90 on Tuesday. He is the sole producer on the album. Jimmy Marsala, a bassist in Berry’s longtime band, suggests the new album took so long to come together because Berry wanted to make sure it lived up to everyone’s expectations. His last studio album was “Rock It” in 1979.

Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam performs June 11 at Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tenn. The late rapper Tupac Shakur and Pearl Jam are among the first-time nominees on the ballot for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Tupac Shakur, Pearl Jam lead Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ballot NEW YORK – The late rapper Tupac Shakur and Seattle-based rockers Pearl Jam are among the first-time nominees on the ballot for induction next year into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Nine of the 19 acts nominated are on the ballot for the first time, with Shakur and Pearl Jam in their first year of eligibility. More than 800 artists, historians and music-industry officials vote, with results announced in December and induction next April. Others back for another chance include pop superstar Janet Jackson; she was nominated for the first time last year. Nominations were announced Tuesday. The prolific Shakur was shot and killed at his peak in 1996. His album “Me Against the World” hit the top of the charts when he was in prison for sexual assault. “Keep Ya Head Up,” “Life Goes On,” “Ambitionz Az a Ridah” and “Changes” are among his best-known songs. He recorded so much while alive that releases kept flowing after his death. Pearl Jam would be the second band, following Nirvana in 2014, with roots in Seattle’s grunge scene to make the hall. Behind charismatic frontman Eddie Vedder, Pearl Jam was a huge initial success behind songs like “Jeremy,” “Even Flow,” “Alive” and “Better Man.” They consciously stepped back from the commercial world, and persist as a respected and popular touring outfit. And “Don’t Stop Believin’” it’s true: Journey is another first-time nominee. Its members must wait a couple of months to find out whether voters welcome them with “Open Arms.” Other first-time nominees: the hardcore punk pioneers Bad Brains; 1980s synth-poppers Depeche Mode; Jeff Lynne’s 1970s hit machine Electric Light Orchestra; Lollapalooza instigators Jane’s Addiction; 1960s folkie Joan Baez; and Steppenwolf, Canadian rockers of “Born to be Wild” fame.

LOS ANGELES – Comedian Harry Shearer announced Tuesday that he has sued a French film studio over tens of millions in dollars in profits he claims he and his co-creators are owed for creating the classic mockumentary “This Is Spinal Tap.” Shearer’s lawsuit filed in a federal court in Los Angeles on Monday claims the French company Vivendi S.A. and its subsidiary StudioCanal withheld profits from the film, its music and its merchandise. Shearer released a two-minute video on Twitter announcing the lawsuit, urging people to share it with the hashtag #fairnessrocks. Shearer co-created the satire about a British rock band on the decline, which has been featured on numerous top movie lists of all time since its 1984 release. “This Is Spinal Tap” was made for $2.25 million, the lawsuit said.

Tobey Maguire, Jennifer Meyer separate after 9 years LOS ANGELES – Tobey Maguire and Jennifer Meyer have separated after nine years of marriage. Maguire’s representative has confirmed a People magazine report on the breakup. The former couple told People in a joint statement that the decision came “after much soul searching and consideration.” Maguire and Meyer said their “first priority remains raising our children together with enduring love, respect and friendship.” Maguire and Meyer have a 9-year-old

daughter, Ruby, and a 7-year-old son, Otis. Meyer is a jewelry designer and the daughter of longtime Hollywood executive Ron Meyer.

‘Price is Right’ contestants make history with 3-way tie

LOS ANGELES – “Price is Right” history was made on Monday’s episode when a trio of contestants spun different combinations of $1 on the game show’s colorful wheel. The three contestants each landed on spaces adding up to $1 in a pair of spins during one of the show’s showcase showdowns. The game show famously awards contestants who earn $1 on the wheel without going over a $1,000 prize and a chance to spin again. “The Price is Right” host Drew Carey pumped his fist in the air after the contestants achieved the first three-way $1 tie with different combinations in the show’s history.

Broadway concert for Clinton draws huge stars

NEW YORK – Stars of Hollywood and Broadway – including Julia Roberts, Jake Gyllenhaal, Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick, Hugh Jackman, Emily Blunt, Neil Patrick Harris and Helen Mirren – put on a splashy fundraiser for Hillary Clinton.

Tactile advancements

Brain implants allow paralyzed man to feel touch through robot hand By LAURAN NEERGAARD The Associated Press

WASHINGTON – A paralyzed man is regaining a sense of touch while using a mind-controlled robotic hand, feeling subtle pressure in his own fingers when the artificial ones are touched. The experiment reported Thursday is an early step in the quest to create prosthetics that can feel. How it works: Tiny chips implanted in Nathan Copeland’s brain are bypassing his broken spinal cord, relaying electrical signals that govern movement and sensation to and from that robotic arm. When University of Pittsburgh researchers blindfolded Copeland, he could correctly identify which robotic finger they touched 84 percent of the time. “The majority of them, it felt like a pressure or a tingling” in his own corresponding finger, said Copeland, 30, of Dunbar, Pennsylvania. When a researcher touched two fingers at the same time, “I just laughed and I said, ‘Are you trying to be tricky or something?’ ” Harnessing brain waves to power prosthetics is a hot field, with a goal of giving the disabled more independence and improving artificial limbs for amputees as well. Headlines in recent years have reported experiments that let paralyzed people move a robotic arm to touch a loved one or take a drink simply by imagining the motion. Their thoughts activate brain implants that relay electrical signals needed to command movement. The signals are transmitted through a computer to the robotic limb. What’s new is recreating sensation using this brain-controlled technology. After all, proper motion depends on more than muscle movement. Reach for something, and that sense of touch helps you naturally grasp with just enough force to hang on while not either dropping something or crushing it. “It’s not only that emotional connection we get,” said Robert Gaunt, a Pittsburgh assistant professor of rehabilitation who led the new study. “People have an incredibly difficult time interacting with objects, picking objects up, manipulating them, doing fairly basic things with the hand if they don’t have a very basic sense of touch.” Step one is placing sensors in prosthetics. The next hurdle is how to allow feedback to and from those sensors. For amputees, some scientists are attempting to wire nerves left in the remaining part of the person’s natural limb directly to the robotic arm.

This image from video taken Oct. 26, 2015, shows University of Pittsburgh researcher Robert Gaunt preparing Nathan Copeland for research testing to determine whether brain implants could help the paralyzed man feel sensation in his own hand while using a mind-controlled robotic arm. That’s not possible if a spinal cord injury has interrupted the messages that normally flash between the hand and the brain. But previous monkey research had suggested brain implants could bridge that gap. So surgeons at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center implanted electrodes in part of Copeland’s brain that controls what his hands feel. Electrically stimulating those cells worked even though the car wreck that left Copeland mostly paralyzed happened more than a decade ago, Gaunt noted. “This shows you can get natural sensation” through the brain implant, added Pittsburgh neurobiologist Andrew Schwartz. Thursday’s report in Science Translational Medicine details the first six months of experiments after Copeland received the brain implants in March 2015. The ongoing research is becoming more sophisticated, as he picks up objects while the electrodes stimulate

different amounts of force, Copeland said in a phone interview. While the work is in just one patient, it’s a step toward creating touch capability, said Richard Andersen, a neuroscientist at the California Institute of Technology whose team also studies mind-controlled prosthetics and is about to begin a similar experiment. “It still needs to be determined if this tactile feedback will improve performance” in using the robotic arm, Andersen cautioned. Copeland doesn’t get to take the robotic arm home but is proud of helping to advance the science. “Technically when it’s over, I will have netted nothing except having done some cool stuff with some cool people,” Copeland said. “It’s cheesy but, Luke Skywalker loses his hand and then basically the next day he’s got a robot one and it’s working fine. We have to get to that point, and to do that, someone has to start it.”

men who don’t receive surgery or radiation or whose cancer has spread to other parts of the body. It’s typically given in pills and injections for a few months up to a few years, although some men with advanced disease stay on the treatment indefinitely, said Dr. Kevin Nead, the lead author and a cancer doctor at the University of Pennsylvania. Some men who can’t tolerate the harsh treatment because of older age or other health problems sometimes are put on hormone blockers. Nead said the researchers took into account other ailments that also may increase risks for dementia. But he said some conditions may have been missed, and he stressed more research is needed. Some but not all previous studies that also reviewed medical records also have suggested the treatment may increase risks for dementia. Men in the current study were part of a

larger study that included University of Pennsylvania patients and that found an increased risk for Alzheimer’s disease, one type of dementia. That study, co-authored by Nead, was published in December in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. Such studies typically use diagnosis and billing codes in medical records to gauge treatment risks or disease trends. Nead and colleagues used a newer computerized method that scans electronic records including doctors’ and nurses’ written notes, to find the same kind of information. A JAMA Oncology editorial by Vanderbilt University physicians says the results suggest a link, not a cause. “The authors rightly frame their conclusions as associations in need of further study,” Drs. Colin Walsh and Kevin Johnson said in the editorial.

CHICAGO – Hormone-blocking drugs for prostate cancer may increase men’s chances for developing dementia, a large study suggests, but researchers say the results aren’t conclusive enough to recommend avoiding a treatment that can improve survival. Cancer patients who used the drugs faced about double the chances of being diagnosed with dementia over five years, compared with nonusers. The actual risk of dementia, though, was quite low for all the men. The researchers analyzed 20 years of electronic health records for almost 9,300 prostate cancer patients treated at Stanford University’s health system. About 20 percent of the men were given hormone blockers, which lower levels of testosterone and other hor-

mones that can fuel cancer growth. After five years of follow-up, about 8 percent of men on hormone blockers were diagnosed with dementia versus almost 4 percent of nonusers. The results were published Thursday in the journal JAMA Oncology. The researchers and others say rigorous studies are needed to prove whether the widely used treatment is risky. About half of all prostate cancer patients in developed countries receive the treatment, including about 500,000 U.S. men currently on the drugs. How the medicines might increase dementia risks is uncertain. One possible explanation is their effect on testosterone levels. That hormone can drive cancer cell growth, but low levels also have been linked with heart and blood vessel problems that also can contribute to dementia. The treatment often is used for

Heart attacks often can be ‘silent’ Dear Dr. K: I recently had an ECG in preparation for a surgical procedure. The doctor said it showed I’d had a silent heart attack. How could I have had a heart attack and not known about it? Dear Reader: I know it sounds strange. After all, on television, heart attacks are portrayed in rather dramatic fashion. Typically, you see a person clutching their chest in agonizing pain. This mental image is embedded in our culture. But my colleague, Dr. Deepak Bhatt, a cardiologist at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital, cites a recent study that is the latest to show heart attacks often can be “silent.” Silent heart attacks are real. That is, the blood supply to a part of the heart has been shut down, and a part of the heart muscle dies as a result: That’s what a heart attack is. However, in silent heart attacks, people often experience symptoms other than severe chest pain. Instead, they may have just a pressure or heavy feeling in the chest, or pain in the neck or jaw, or shoulder and arm. Or they may have shortness of breath, sweating, extreme fatigue, dizziness or nausea. Whatever the symptoms, they may not attribute them to a heart problem. They may not even bring the symptoms to the attention of a doctor. Or they even may have a heart attack that causes no symptoms. The recent report from the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) Study was a large one: Nearly 10,000 healthy people were followed for nearly a decade, on average. In nearly half (45 percent) of those who had a heart attack, the heart attack was “silent.” If a heart attack didn’t cause any


ASK DOCTOR K Anthony L. Komaroff symptoms, and now is over, does it matter? For example, are you more likely to die from heart disease in the future? The research team compared three groups: 1. People hospitalized for heart attacks that caused symptoms. 2. People with silent heart attacks. 3. People without heart attacks. Not surprisingly, the risk of death in the first group was nearly five times as high as in the third group. Surprisingly and unfortunately, the risk of death in the silent heart attack group was three times as high as in the third group. Older studies had more or less come up with similar findings. The current study extended these observations to a much more diverse population. The excess risk associated with silent heart attacks was found to be present in both men and women. And it was found in both white and African-American patients. Other races were not examined in this study. So having a silent heart attack is a serious warning sign. It might not be quite as serious an omen as a heart attack that did cause symptoms. But it’s a lot more serious than never having had a heart attack. It means it is much more important for you to observe a healthy lifestyle, and to treat any conditions (like high blood pressure or high cholesterol) that put your heart at risk. • Write to Dr. Komaroff at or Ask Doctor K, 10 Shattuck St., Second Floor, Boston, MA 02115.

My boyfriend and I are mature adults who enjoy photography. He brings his camera when we go to the beach or sporting events – even to the store. He’s learning all the time about how to use light correctly and his zoom lens. When we get back and I download the pics from his camera, the majority of shots are of women’s chests, behinds and pretty faces. He has snapped many of them while they were standing right next to me. (There are very few shots of me – ever.) When I ask if he wants me to delete the photos, he says no. I don’t understand why he would keep pictures of strangers. He says he’s like any photographer – he likes to review his photos. I tell him it hurts my feelings to think he enjoys looking at other women more than at me. It would be different if they were beautiful portraits, but they’re not. It is painful I’m not included. Am I wrong to feel unimportant and ignored? – Out Of The Picture Dear Out: You are entitled to your feelings, and they might be justified. Because you identify this man as your boyfriend, I assume you have an exclusive relationship. There always will be women around who are younger and prettier. That’s life. Because you can’t control his taste in subjects, my advice is to quit downloading his pictures for him if they make you uncomfortable. Dear Abby: My fiancé and I have a loving relationship. He is affectionate – hugging, kissing, etc. But he doesn’t have a high libido, which I am concerned about because he’s only 26. He has confessed to me he’s had relations with men in the past, and I’m thinking he might be bisexual. While that does not concern me whatsoever (after all, it’s one thing to be attracted to someone and another thing entirely to cheat), I worry he thinks he couldn’t share this with me, and it may lead to lies. I also am worried if I confront him with this, he may be offended or think I think less of him. What should I do? – Loving Relationship In Michigan Dear Loving: You and your fiancé are overdue for a frank talk. He has told you he has had more than one same-sex relationship, so it’s fair to consider him to be bisexual. That he didn’t use that word doesn’t mean he was dishonest. That you have continued your relationship after learning about his sexual history should indicate to him you don’t think less of him. As to the strength of his libido, no two individuals are alike. If he is able to provide you with what you need, I don’t think you need to be concerned. If not – as I said before, you have to talk with him about it. Dear Abby: How do you get a man to help you financially? – Anony-miss In Beverly Hills Dear Anony-miss: Tell him you need his help and hope he’s the type who likes rescuing women.

Golden Eagles solve stingy Cary-Grove defense By SEAN HAMMOND

What to watch NLCS, Cubs at L.A. Dodgers, 7 p.m., FS1 The Cubs’ John Lackey, who lasted only four innings in the deciding Game 4 of the NL Division Series, allowing three runs, faces Julio Urias, 20, who is set to become the youngest pitcher to start a league championship series game.

CRYSTAL LAKE – Jacobs’ Noah Melick couldn’t see the ball. Teammate Noah Perrone crossed a ball from the right side of the box, and Melick was sandwiched between two defenders. “The defenders were in my way,” Melick said. “I was going to try to peek my head and get a header on it.” But Perrone’s pass threaded the needle perfectly, and Melick corralled it and blew a shot past Cary-Grove goalkeeper Sergio Lemus. The goal gave Jacobs a lead it never relinquished in a 2-0 victory in Tuesday’s Class 3A Crystal Lake South Regional semifinal at South. Jacobs will play the winner of Wednesday’s game between Elgin and South. The regional final is at 4 p.m. Friday. Melick scored with 18:20 to play in the first half. It had been a relatively slow first 21 minutes up to that point. “Cary came out very organized, and they defended very tough,” Jacobs coach Anthony Cappello said. “We didn’t create too many chances early like we like to normally. They did a good job. Once we got through and Melick took his chance, it relaxed us a little bit and we started getting into our tempo.” Neither team created many scoring

Perrone threaded the needle with a perfect pass between two defenders to Noah Melick, who hammered the ball home for the game’s opening goal.



Jacobs goalkeeper Ethan Pickering stopped all five Cary-Grove shots.


Jacobs doesn’t know who it will face in Friday’s regional final, but coach Anthony Cappello thinks it will all come down to pace. “Whoever can set the tempo and the pace of the game will probably have the upper hand,” Cappello said. opportunities early. Jacobs’ Patrick Murphy had the Golden Eagles’ nextbest chance with a rocket from left of the net, but Lemus just got a hand on it. Murphy had to wait until midway through the second half to score his team’s second goal. Colin Walsh duped a defender with a give-and-go to Maxwell McGregor and back to Walsh, who then sent a ball into the box, where Murphy headed it home.

He just hits a nice service and Patrick Murphy made a great run in and buried the header.” Jacobs (13-5-4) is fresh off its first outright Fox Valley Conference title since 2002. For Cary-Grove (4-11), it was an end to a disappointing season after reaching a sectional final in 2015. “It wasn’t the season everybody had hoped for or wanted, but you have to give them a lot of credit for finishing better at the end,” Trojans coach Mark Olson said. “I like the way our kids battled. Jacobs just came out and was the sharper team. They have a lot of different weapons that you have to account for.”




Axel Solis Huntley, so., M

Solis, one of two sophomores on the Red Raiders’ roster, looked calm on the ball when he came in, played some dangerous passes and ended up earning an assist on Huntley’s fifth goal.



Goals for the Red Raiders, four of them coming in the second half


It’s not unusual for Huntley coach Kris Grabner to be upset with the officials, but one of the penalties – called for a handball in the box – caused him to turn to his assistant coaches and ask whether the three of them wanted to quit coaching the sport and become a crew of referees. final Saturday. Grabner said he thought the Red Raiders were a step slow in the first half before eventually becoming “a little more focused, a little more intense” and “started playing a little bit better soccer.” “One of our goals was to play posses-

Scoreboard Tuesday’s semifinals Huntley 6, Rockford Auburn 2 Guilford 8, Hononegah 1 Saturday’s championship (2) Huntley vs. (3) Guilford, 3 p.m. sion soccer, and I think we got big eyes seeing that we could get behind these guys, and we didn’t do it effectively,” Grabner said. “When we get that first goal, it’s because we played soccer. ... I think that’s really the message going forward is we have to play good soccer against good teams or you’re not going to beat them. You’ve got to probe in different areas, you’ve got to move their defense around and sort it out so you can score.” The opening goal was a result of everything Grabner wanted his team to be doing. It looked like a counter -attack might be on, but when a clear chance didn’t present itself immediately, the Red Raiders slowed play down and worked the ball side to side across Auburn’s end of the field. Eventually, the ball came to Aaron Ruffner at the top of the box. He touched the ball to his right, opening up some space and

sent a powerful shot back across goal through the keeper’s hands. “Overall, we probably knew we were going to figure it out, but in the moment it’s still frustrating. ... If you miss a certain opportunity that’s easy and it keeps on happening over and over again, at least for me it was frustrating,” Huntley senior Zack Whitaker said. “Then Ruffner, of course being a finisher, was able to put one in, and I think that changed the momentum or, like, the attitude of everyone.” Adam Kaster made it 2-0 just before halftime, knocking in a rebound after Whitaker’s shot was saved. The Red Raiders got rolling in the second half. Whitaker won and converted a penalty in the 44th minute, Jakob Kranz scored from close range in the 49th minute, Kaster got his second in the 60th minute and Juan Pablo Franco Gonzalez scored with 1:067 left, icing a 6-2 victory. Both of Auburn’s goals came from the penalty spot. With Eric Pinedo converting penalties in the 47th and 70th minutes. Huntley goalkeeper Michael Parks finished with one save before giving way to Andrew Fulcer, who didn’t need to make a save. Both allowed one penalty goal.


CL Central rallies to reach title match By ERIC INGLES STERLING – Crystal Lake Central’s Gustavo Costa went down in the penalty box in the 52nd minute, and Ryan Nottoli turned that into the winning goal Tuesday as the Tigers beat Dixon, 2-1, in a Class 2A Sterling Regional semifinal. Taking the penalty kick, Nottoli went to his left as Dixon goalkeeper Nicholas LeSage dived the other way. Nottoli and the Tigers had several chances in the first half, but the Dixon defense was able to keep them in check. Nottoli chipped a shot wide of the net in the 25th minute. A flurry of chances came off several corner kicks in the 12th minute. Dixon center back Nathaniel Hawkins made a tackle to deny Nottoli in the 17th minute. “We just had to give it our all,” Nottoli said. “If they brought it to us, we brought it harder. We just needed

to find outside mids and get the ball to the middle.” Central saw more of the ball and more chances on goal in the first half but spent much of the half trailing. “They put in a good effort in the first half, but I don’t think it was our best half of soccer,” Tigers coach Mark Leverentz said. “We made some adjustments at halftime. That seemed to pick things up. We tweaked the formation a little bit because our backline disconnected from our middle, and there was too much empty space between the line.”

Dixon took the lead in the fourth minute when Bryson Forrest sent a cross to Caleb Carlson, who tapped it in. The Tigers tied the score with 4 seconds left in the half off a long free kick, directed into the net by Willem Bracher. “It takes a toll,” Dixon coach Josh Brigl said. “When you couple that with the physical play, it hurts a little bit. We lost some momentum, but I thought we did a good job keeping the intensity coming out in the second half. We made some adjustments. We saw some things on set pieces, and we were able to shut it down on the second half, but one poor call gives them a penalty kick and doesn’t give us one. That’s kind of the difference tonight.” Dixon had a few chances in the attacking third in the closing minutes of the game but could not convert. A handful of passes were behind the intended recipient. A few others came

on balls that players couldn’t settle. Forrest was able to get a shot off in the 69th minute, but the Tigers’ defense deflected it wide. Dixon often tried to play long balls over the Central defense to either Carlson or Remington LeRette. Often, the Tigers’ backline stifled the chance. “We had to make sure we were composed,” Central center back Kareem Castaneda said. “We had to focus on the ball all the time, watch our man, and we were fine with that.” When Dixon did get a shot off, goalkeeper Drew Dayton did plenty to deny them. “I saw a lot from him,” Castaneda said. “He was very composed. He knew what he was doing, and he just played one of the best games.” Central will face Sterling in the regional final Saturday after Sterling beat Rochelle. 8-0, in Tuesday’s other semifinal.

ROCKFORD – For the first 20 minutes of Tuesday’s Class 3A Guilford Regional semifinal, Huntley missed chance after clear chance in front of goal: a shot cleared off the line in the second minute, tripping over the ball just yards from an open goal, a bad touch too wide to get a shot off despite getting around the goalkeeper. The kinds of scoring chances you can’t miss too often in the postseason. “I wasn’t real happy with the way we started; we were a little lackluster,” Huntley boys soccer coach Kris Grabner said. “It was kind of one of those things that we really need to, as we go along we’re going to have to take care of our business. ... We’re going to take care of business as we move on from here. We can’t have those misses anymore. It’s a matter of focus and being able to handle the pressure when it comes.” Once the first goal came in the 25th minute, however, Huntley seemed to settle into the game. The goals began flowing and, despite even a few more missed chances, the Red Raiders beat Rockford Auburn, 6-2. The Red Raiders advance to face Guilford in a regional

Dodgers lead series, 2-1


Cubs have forgotten how to hit

LOS ANGELES – The Cubs tried not to suck. They did anyway. They find themselves down 2-1 in the best-of-seven National League Championship Series because they’ve forgotten how to hit, or as they call it, “the act by which the baseball avoids the strange wooden things in VIEWS our hands.” Manager Rick Morrissey Joe Maddon’s cute “Try Not to Suck” T-shirts feel like hair shirts after a 6-0 loss to the Dodgers on Tuesday night. What has happened in the postseason can no longer be considered a small sample size, and it no longer can be dismissed with a shrug as baseball being baseball, all weirdness and statistical flukiness. The Cubs don’t remember how to hit. Anthony Rizzo doesn’t. Ben Zobrist doesn’t. Dexter Fowler doesn’t. And Addison Russell might as well be staring down at a grocery list at home plate for all the production he has offered. When the Cubs brought in massively struggling Jason Heyward to hit for epically struggling Russell in the seventh inning Tuesday night, some natural law was broken. We humans may never be the same again. Heyward struck out to end the inning, and all that was left was a crater near the plate. The Cubs are in trouble, serious trouble. Clayton Kershaw-on-the-horizon trouble. The loss to the Dodgers has turned this series and maybe this season upside down for the Cubs. Their kingdom for a hitter. “I have no solid explanation,” Maddon said. “It’s happening at the wrong time obviously,” said third baseman Kris Bryant, one of the few Cubs who is hitting in the postseason. “We’ve got more games to play, more time to get that confidence back and figure things out. I’m sure we will. We’ve done it all year. We’re here for a reason. Belief is very powerful, and I think we all have that here.” Maddon tweaked his lineup Tuesday, hoping it would shake things up. It didn’t. Rizzo batted in the fourth spot, instead of third, and all that meant was that he led off the second and fourth innings. You’d prefer to have your power hitter at the plate with runners on base. You’d prefer more than four hits from the team in the biggest game of the

year to date. The Cubs are hitting .185 in the postseason. “I think we’re trying to do too

much,” catcher Miguel Montero said. “I think we’re all trying to be heroes here.” The Cubs needed starter Jake Arrieta to be better than Rich Hill, and he wasn’t. They needed more from the reigning NL Cy Young winner, but he wasn’t why they lost Tuesday. Even if he had duplicated his no-hitter of Aug. 30, 2015, at Dodger Stadium, the last time he pitched here, it might not have been enough. He wouldn’t criticize the Cubs’ hitting. “It can happen in the postseason in these sort of games,” he said. “These things are possible at any moment, in any game. Our guys are prepared, our guys are ready, our guys are doing everything they can to prepare for the ballgame. When a guy makes good pitches like Rich did along with their bullpen, it’s going to be tough on us.” Let’s not turn Hill into Sandy Koufax. The former Cub pitcher is good and he throws a nice curveball, but a team that led the NL in on-base percentage shouldn’t be struggling this much. Hill gave up two hits in six innings, and both of those hits were by Bryant. The Cubs hadn’t seen Hill this season, but that doesn’t explain them getting only two more hits after he departed. Bryant (.357) and Javy Baez (.333) are

the only position players hitting above .179 in the playoffs. You’re not going to win anything that way. You’re not going to impress anyone at the neighborhood batting cage either. What gives the Cubs hope is that they’ve hit most of the year. They tore through NL pitching this season. “I’ve seen it before,” Fowler said. “You go in ruts and you snap back out of them and then score five or six runs.” The Cubs will face 20-year-old Julio Urias in Game 4. And at some point, they’ll again have to face Kershaw, who shut them down in Game 2. Whether that’s Game 5 or 6 isn’t known yet. But they had better get their act together at the plate or else their season is going to end sooner and more painfully than they ever could have imagined. Maybe Maddon should try a more positive T-shirt: “Try to Hit.” “We’ll figure it out,” Bryant said. “We’re all very confident here. Peaks and valleys of this game will sometimes make you go crazy, but we’ve got more games to play.” How many more depends on their hitting. • Rick Morrissey is a Chicago SunTimes sports columnist.

Ex-Cub Monday on Kaepernick: ‘I don’t get it’ By GORDON WITTENMYER

AP file photo

Cubs outfielder Rick Monday is honored by the Brooklyn, N.Y., chapter of the Veterans of Foreign Wars before a game with the New York Mets on Sept. 24, 1976. Earlier that season, Monday rescued a flag that protesters in Los Angeles were trying to burn on the field during a game against the Dodgers.

LOS ANGELES – Rick Monday still has the flag. He asked for it the day after he snatched it from two guys who had run on the field at Dodger Stadium and tried to burn it during a game on April 25, 1976. Monday, the Cubs’ center fielder that day, thinks about that when he sees 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and other athletes sit or kneel during the pregame performances of the national anthem in protest. “My thoughts have not changed from the time I was raised to that moment in 1976 here when those two guys were trying to ignite

the American flag and disrespect those that have stood up for us and represent the rights and freedoms that all of us have,” said Monday, now a Dodgers broadcaster, who threw out the ceremonial first pitch and was honored before Tuesday’s game. “Someone asked me about the football player,” he said. “My concern is not with him sitting down. My concern is what’s he going to do once he stands up? I’m going to watch what he does when he finally stands up.” Monday’s wife, Barbaralee, has taken the flag Rick saved on fundraising tours to more than a dozen states in support of veterans issues. “The irony of it is that the very

symbol that those guys were trying to desecrate that afternoon still has a life,” he said. “She’s raised a great deal of money for military charities. It’s been a very positive influence and something we’re very proud of.” Asked about the possible value in the national conversation Kaepernick has sparked, Monday said he has not followed that part of the issue, “because it irritates me to begin with. “For me it disrespects everyone who has served in this country of ours,” he said. “I cannot understand the argument. I’ve lost friends protecting the rights and freedoms we have in this country. I’ve attended funerals at Arlington National Cemetery. I don’t get it.”

LOS ANGELES – Rich Hill never strayed from his mindset of pitching in the moment, even when he was far from the major leagues playing independent ball with the Long Island Ducks. Convinced there would be another opportunity to get back to the big leagues, he focused on executing pitches without worrying about his current circumstances. Fourteen months later, Hill allowed two hits over six innings to beat Cy Young Award winner Jake Arrieta and the Cubs, 6-0, Wednesday, giving the Los Angeles Dodgers a 2-1 NL Championship Series lead. “It’s the biggest game of my career,” Hill said. “It’s just putting in the work, putting in the time, having a routine, persevere, all those things that you can say to sum up some kind of endurance or resiliency. For me, that’s all I’ve ever known is just work.” Rookie Corey Seager had three hits, including a go-ahead single in the third, and Yasmani Grandal hit a two-run homer in the fourth. After winning a big league-high 103 games during the regular season and sparking belief they could win the World Series for the first time since 1908, the

Sports Bureau. “More than anything, I think we need to get a couple runs and hits and runs early to try to get that kind of feeling back,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon said, “because, obviously, when you’re not scoring any runs, it makes it even more difficult in the dugout.” Hill, who made two starts in the independent Atlantic League in August 2015 before signing a minor league deal with Boston, struck out six and walked two. Joe Blanton, Grant Dayton and Kenley Jansen finished. Playing their 200th postseason game, the Dodgers posted consecutive shutouts for the first time. Julio Urias starts Game 4 for the Dodgers on Wednesday and at 20 years, 68 days will become the youngest starting pitcher in postseason history. John Lackey starts for the Cubs. “He’s not scared of the moment,” Seager said of Urias. “He’s not scared of anything.” Hill was strong from the start against one of his former teams, retiring the side AP photo to open the game and later eight in a row.

Jays stave off elimination, avoid sweep By NOAH TRISTER

The Associated Press

TORONTO – Just in time, Josh Donaldson and the Toronto Blue Jays broke out the bats to save their season. Now they have a chance to really make things interesting in this AL Championship Series. Donaldson backed up his fiery pep talk to teammates before the game, hitting a home run and turning in a timely diving stop Tuesday to help the Blue Jays avert a sweep with a 5-1 win over the Cleveland Indians. The Indians still lead the matchup, 3-1, but with a couple of big hits and a strong outing by Aaron Sanchez, Toronto handed them their first loss of this postseason. “I’m not going to give too much away of what I had to say, but just more so getting everybody’s attention and focus and understanding,” Donaldson said. “I mean, everybody knew coming into today how important today was. But at the same time I just wanted to kind of reiterate that and let the boys know that I was coming to play today.” Cleveland will try again Wednesday

The Blue Jays’ Edwin Encarnacion celebrates Tuesday after his two-run double against the Cleveland Indians during the seventh inning in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series in Toronto. to win to earn its first World Series trip since 1997, but the big concern for the Indians coming into the series – an in-

jury-riddled rotation – still lingers. In Game 5, Cleveland will start Ryan Merritt, who has pitched just 11 innings in the majors, against Marco Estrada. It was an emotional day all around at Rogers Centre, where the home crowd had fallen silent watching the season slipping away because of a slumbering offense that totaled only three runs in the first three games of the series. “I thought we battled pretty good today, with the bats,” Toronto manager John Gibbons said. “Naturally, when you score, which we haven’t been doing, it always looks good.” Donaldson’s solo shot to left-center field off Corey Kluber in the third put the Blue Jays ahead for the first time all series. Two innings after that, the star third baseman made an outstanding play to preserve a one-run edge. Sanchez, the American League ERA champion, allowed a run and two hits in six innings, and the bullpen finished with three perfect innings. Kluber was starting on three days’ rest for the first time in his career. “I felt fine. I don’t think it physically affected me. I made a mistake to Donaldson,” Kluber said. “We’re one win away

from the World Series and that’s what we’re focused on.” Kluber hadn’t allowed a run in either of his first two starts this postseason. Donaldson, the reigning AL MVP and sporting a still freshly shaved face, opened the scoring with his first home run of these playoffs. The wild-card Blue Jays made it 2-0 in the fourth when Ezequiel Carrera’s blooper fell between three Cleveland fielders in left-center for an RBI single. Roberto Perez hit an RBI double in the fifth off Sanchez. Carlos Santana’s two-out grounder to the left side might have had a chance to score him, but Donaldson made the play to his left , then popped up and danced off the field with a bit of a fist pump. “I was locked in,” Donaldson said. “It helps when you have a guy like Sanchez in the zone, where you can really focus in on a certain area of the strike zone. And I was able to get a really good read off the bat, and I was fortunate enough to be able to make the play.” The Indians didn’t have another baserunner after that. Brett Cecil, Jason Grilli and Roberto Osuna pitched an inning each in relief for Toronto.

CHICAGO – Marian Hossa was almost headed for an awkward celebration of his 500th career goal. Then the Blackhawks put together one final push, making sure it was a sweet night for their accomplished winger. Artem Anisimov snapped a third-period tie with his first goal of the season and then had an empty-netter with 45 seconds left, helping the Blackhawks beat the Philadelphia Flyers, 7-4, Tuesday. Artemi Panarin added two goals and an assist for the Hawks, who blew a 4-0 lead before closing strong for their second straight win after dropping their first two. NHL MVP Patrick Kane scored his first goal of the season and collected three assists, and Dennis Rasmussen also scored during the Hawks’ three-goal first. “Kind of reminded me of our last game, when we were in a really good spot and we let the other team get back in the game,” Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said. “But tonight I thought we did some better things across the

The crowd of 21,263 at the United Center roared when the milestone goal was announced, and Hossa waved his stick to acknowledge the standing ovation. “What an amazing moment that was,” Kane said. “You could tell he was excited. The crowd was excited. Pretty cool celebration with him coming over to the bench and getting everyone involved, too.” Hossa left in the third period after blocking a shot and said he would know more about the injury Wednesday. After picking up an assist in each of the Hawks’ first three games, he was happy to get No. 500 out of the way. “It feels great. Doing it at home in front of our fans, I can’t be happier,” he said. “And the guys end up winning this game. It feels great.”

Hornets, Thunder head to overtime

Match suspended with score tied at 1 By TIM SIECK WOODSTOCK – The Woodstock North and Harvard soccer teams are no strangers. The two schools met twice this season in matches that were dominated by Harvard. Regional play is a different animal, however, and the ninth-seeded Thunder played like a team that didn’t want its season to end just yet. Thanks to darkness and some stellar goalkeeping, Woodstock North and the second-seeded Hornets will get to play at least one more day. The Thunder and the Hornets couldn’t finish after 80 minutes because of darkness and will need at least two 10-minute sessions of overtime play at 4:30 p.m. Thursday to determine a winner in a semifinal of the Class 2A Wood-

stock North Regional. Thursday’s winner will face the winner of Wednesday’s semifinal between Marian Central and Belvidere in Saturday’s regional final. Tuesday’s first half was spent mostly in the Woodstock North end, and keeper AJ Guanci needed to be on his game. The sophomore picked the perfect op-

portunity to play his best half of the season. Guanci stopped six great first-half Harvard scoring chances and kept his team in the game. “I really stayed mentally focused today,” Guanci said. “I came in ready to make any save I needed. Even though we played them a few times, we watched film and really studied them the past few days, and that really helped me know what to expect.” The Harvard offense was finally able to solve Guanci just over four minutes into the second half. Sophomore Adrian Gorostieta took a pass from Alonzo Carrillo and buried it in the back of the net

to give the Hornets (16-3) a 1-0 lead. Woodstock North (7-12-1) started to get scoring chances in the second half and got the tying goal with 12:26 remaining when Edder Tapia scored on a breakaway. The Thunder clearly held the momentum when regulation had ended. With the sun already set, it was decided to suspend the game until Thursday. Harvard coach Victor Gonzalez was disappointed with his team’s performance. “We didn’t play to our level today and missed a lot of good scoring opportunities,” Gonzalez said. “We kept them in the game, which gave them a lot of confidence. We definitely need to come out and play with more energy on Thursday.” Woodstock North coach Lauren Farley was pleased with the effort given by the Thunder. “I am really happy with how we played today,” Farley said. “We struggled in two games against them this season but came out motivated and really stepped up our play today. We need to continue this level of play on Thursday.”


Johnsburg falls; Eastland steps down as coach By TIM FROEHLIG ANTIOCH – Shortly after his team dropped a 4-0 decision to Grayslake Central in a Class 2A Antioch boys soccer regional semifinal Tuesday, Johnsburg coach Rob Eastland stood near the south end of the field and praised his players. It was a somber but heartfelt moment, as it also was his final game coaching the Skyhawks boys after 12 seasons. Eastland will coach Johnsburg’s girls soccer team in the spring, then step down to spend more time with his family, he said. The legacy he will leave behind is a sizable one. “A lot of these guys have been playing on the same team as each other since they were 9 or 10 years old,” Eastland said. “And I’ve been coaching many of them at the club and high school levels for quite some time, so saying goodbye isn’t easy. “We’ve always been a small school and a small program, but we’ve always managed to bring through enough quality players. I take pride in these guys. We haven’t finished outside the top

scoring in the ninth minute on a one-timer off the foot of Juan Mata, who later added a second goal less than a minute into the second half to give the Rams a 2-0 lead. The Rams controlled the tempo throughout, and continued to push the pace during the second half, which led to a pair of goals by midfielder Trevor Veenstra in the 53rd and 69th minutes, putting the game out of reach for good. Senior defender Keith Adamkiewicz, a three-year varsity player, was thankful to be a member of the Skyhawks’ soccer program. “It means everything to me that I got to be a part of this team,” Adamkiewicz said. “Soccer is such a big part of my life, and it’s a huge part of the lives of so many of these guys who just played

their final high school game tonight. We’re so grateful for everything that Coach Eastland taught us, too, and for him believing in us and pushing to make us all better people and soccer players.” Johnsburg also will lose four other players who started Tuesday to graduation in Todd Dombrowski, Andrew Calhoun, Logan Andersen and James Griffin. But they also expect plenty of talent to return in 2017. One of those players is junior goalkeeper Nicholas Craun, who made six saves, including a two-handed diving beauty to rob Rams forward Leo Orozco of a goal in the first half, when it was still a one-goal game. “Nicholas was great for us this season, and really grew as a player,” Eastland said. “There’s quite a few guys who I expect will take on leadership roles a year from now. Seth Billig – and Dean Wiersum, who had more than 20 goals. Cody Dschida and Will Conroy. All four are experienced juniors who should have a big impact on this team in the future.” Grayslake Central will face No. 4 seed Grayslake North in the regional title game at 4 p.m. Friday.

9 players miss practice, including 3 CBs By KEVIN FISHBAIN LAKE FOREST – Nine Bears missed practice Tuesday, two days before they head to Lambeau Field to take on the Packers. Cornerbacks Deiondre’ Hall, Bryce Callahan and Tracy Porter, running back Jeremy Langford, receiver Eddie Royal, quarterback Jay Cutler, guard Josh Sitton and linebacker Sam Acho (noninjury related) did not practice. RB Ka’Deem Carey, tight end Zach Miller, and linebackers Jerrell Freeman and Leonard Floyd were limited, although it was a light, nonpadded practice. “You know, a lot of it’s mental. We do a lot of walk-through tempo,” coach John Fox said. “These guys are still recovering. We just found it’s been a scheduled formula that’s worked pretty good turnaround quickly for

a Thursday night game, in particular on the road. But it’s a lot mental. At this stage, guys have a pretty good idea of what we’re doing, so basically just customizing our game plan.” If Sitton can’t go against his former team, the Bears have Ted Larsen or Eric Josh Sitton Kush, a waiver claim from the Rams after cut-downs. “He has position flexibility. He has the ability to play center, guard, even mix in at tackle some,” offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said of Kush. “He’s an explosive athlete. He can get to the second level, and we think he’s strong enough to anchor at the point of attack as well.” If Porter and Callahan are out, the Bears’ corners against Aaron Rodgers will be Cre’Von LeBlanc, Jacoby

Glenn and De’Vante Bausby. If Royal is unable to play because of his toe injury, look for Deonte Thompson and Josh Bellamy to pick up the slack at receiver. In Green Bay, the Packers will be without RB James Starks and CB Sam Shields for the game. RB Eddie Lacy, WR Davonte Adams, TE Jared Cook and CBs Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins did not practice Tuesday. The teams will provide a player status report Wednesday afternoon. Third-and-short: The Bears were 0 for 7 on third down against Jacksonville after halftime, which included a few completed pass attempts on routes short of the first-down marker. Loggains explained the philosophy. “There’s a lot that plays into that,” he said. “The defense also understands where the sticks are, as in when you try to layer people and create different levels of defense and

different levels of offense, sometimes the coverage dictates that you check it down underneath. If that does happen, if the defense gets too deep, you’re going to have to throw the ball underneath, and we’re going to have to run for a first down, run after the catch and pick those things up.” What worked on Thanksgiving: Last year, the Bears stunned QB Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio recalled what led to the strong defensive effort. “Well, I think anytime you play any good offense, if you can keep the big plays to a minimum, that always helps,” he said. “If you can take the ball away a couple times that always helps. And I think that’s the key. You gotta play good. I know that sounds like a generic nothing answer, but you gotta be able to win your one-onone battles.”

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Kansas City Chiefs have traded backup running back Knile Davis to the Green Bay Packers, who desperately need to add depth to their injury-riddled backfield. The Packers gave up a conditional draft pick Tuesday for Davis, who has already started practicing with his new team. The Packers needed help at running back with Eddie Lacy nursing a bothersome ankle and James Starks undergoing knee

surgery. Lacy was their only active running back against Dallas on Sunday, when he rushed for 65 yards on 17 carries in a 30-16 loss. Starks will be out a couple of weeks. Lacy was being held out of practice Wednesday because the ankle was “very sore,” coach Mike McCarthy said. That means the Packers will have to get Davis up to speed on the playbook quickly if he’s going to be ready when the Bears visit Lambeau Field on Thursday night.

The winner of that match plays No. 2 Jacobs. “We’re battle tested,” Gators coach Brian Allen said. “This team has played a tough schedule, and we’ve done some very good things. … We hope the best is still to come at home where we’ve been very tough to play. So we have that going for us, but it’s going to take a lot of work. We’re going to face two really, really good teams and we’ll find out if they learned from the 20 games we played to get ready. Because really it’s all about the postseason, conference is great and fantastic, but this team has had bigger goals from the get-go and that’s what we’re looking forward to.”

Chicken With Spinach and Sundried Tomatoes in a Cheesy Cream Sauce AP photo

Tomato and Coconut Rice AP photo

NEW YORK – If you buy tomatoes from John Banscher at his farmstand in New Jersey, he’ll recommend keeping them out of the fridge or they’ll lose some of their taste. Now scientists have figured out why: It’s because some of their genes chill out, says a study that may help solve that problem. Cooling tomatoes below 54 degrees stops them from making some of the substances that contribute to their taste, according to researchers who dug into the genetic roots of the problem. That robs the fruit of flavor, whether it happens in a home refrigerator or in cold storage before the produce reaches the grocery shelf, they said. With the new detailed knowledge of how that happens, “maybe we can breed tomatoes to change that,” said researcher Denise Tieman of the University of Florida in Gainesville. She and colleagues there, in China and at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, report their findings in a paper published Monday by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. They showed that after seven days of

storage at 39 degrees, tomatoes lost some of their supply of substances that produce their characteristic aroma, which is a key part of their flavor. Three days of sitting at room temperature didn’t remedy that, and a taste test by 76 people confirmed the chilled tomatoes weren’t as good as fresh fruit. Tomatoes stored for just one or three days didn’t lose their aroma substances. Further research showed the pro-

longed chilling reduced the activity of certain genes that make those compounds, Tieman said. Her lab already is looking into the possibility of breeding tomatoes that don’t lose flavor in the cold, she said. In the meantime, “Just leave them out on the counter, or leave them in a shaded area, something like that,” said Banscher, whose farm is in Gloucester County. “A tomato has a decent shelf life.”

Tomatoes do double duty in coconut rice By MEERA SODHA

The Associated Press

I eat tomatoes in every way I can: I fry them for breakfast, slow-roast them for salads, add them to sandwiches and make tomato chutney. But when big groups of friends come over, I love whipping up South Indian tomato and coconut rice. Tomatoes work in a couple of different ways in this recipe: They create a wonderful sauce alongside the coconut milk, which is used to flavor and cook the rice, then they float to the top to decorate the dish. The end result is a dish delicious enough to stand on its feet without the need for anything else (which is especially good if you have vegetarians or vegans at the table) but also will complement grilled meat or salad. As a side benefit, it’s inexpensive to cook a mountain of it and uses just a single pot.

Tomato and Coconut Rice Start to finish: 45 minutes Serves: 4

2 cups of basmati rice 2 tablespoons canola oil 12 fresh curry leaves 1 cinnamon stick, approx. 2 inches 1 large onion, finely sliced 4 cloves garlic, minced 2 green serrano chilies, finely sliced

1 handful of cashews, unsalted 12 ounces fresh baby plum or cherry tomatoes, halved 1 14-ounce can coconut milk 1¼ teaspoons kosher salt 1 cup water Wash the rice in a few changes of cold water until the water runs clear, then leave to soak in cold water to one side. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan. When oil is hot, add the curry leaves and cinnamon stick. Stir-fry for one minute, then add the onions. Cook the onions until they begin to turn golden brown and are soft enough to cut with a wooden spoon, then add the garlic, chilies and cashews. Cook for another two minutes, then add the tomatoes. Cover and cook for around eight minutes until the tomatoes are soft around the edges. Drain the rice and add it to the pan. Stir to mix. Then add all of the coconut milk, a cup of water and the salt to the pan. Stir again and bring the mixture to a boil for two minutes, cover and then turn the heat to low and cook for another 15 minutes without lifting the lid. Turn off heat. Keep covered for an additional 10 minutes before serving.

By KATIE WORKMAN The Associated Press

A while back, in honor of Julia’s Child’s birthday (she would have been 104 this year), I created a dish that embodies one of her many excellent sayings: “The only time to eat diet food is while you’re waiting for the steak to cook.” You can fuss all you want with fancier dishes, exotic ingredients and new techniques, but isn’t it true that when you make something super-homey, super-comforting, that’s when everyone ask for seconds? When in doubt, choose comfort food. Here, thinly sliced chicken breasts are enveloped in a creamy, cheesy sauce peppered with wilted spinach and sundried tomatoes. Sundried tomatoes were all the rage years ago, and then they faded out of fashion, but it seems a shame to turn your back on a great ingredient just because it was a little overexposed for a while. If you can find real sundried tomatoes – which won’t be hard little dried-up disks but rather pliant, brick-red, chewy bites – then that will make all the difference. Look for them in a store that sells good Italian ingredients. Oil-packed sundried tomatoes also can be used, but use paper towels to blot excess oil before chopping them. You can buy thin-sliced chicken cutlets at the market or butcher, or use a steady hand and a large sharp knife to cut regular chicken breasts horizontally into thinner slices. Depending on how thick your chicken breasts are, you will get two or three slices per breast, about a half-inch thick apiece. And if you don’t have fresh herbs, dried are perfectly acceptable here. This makes a nice amount of sauce, which is a good thing, because when you serve up this chicken over a plate of steaming pasta or rice you’ll want to have lots of starchiness alongside the chicken, and you can ladle the luscious sauce over it.

Chicken With Spinach and Sundried Tomatoes in a Cheesy Cream Sauce Start to finish: 25 minutes Serves 4 to 6

2 tablespoons olive oil 1½ pounds thin-sliced boneless, skinless chicken cutlets 2 large shallots, chopped 3/4 cup chicken broth 1 cup heavy cream 1 teaspoon minced fresh oregano 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh thyme 1/2 cup grated Fontina cheese 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese 2 cups roughly chopped spinach 1/2 cup roughly chopped sundried tomatoes Hot cooked rice or pasta to serve In a very large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Sear the chicken for about 3 minutes on each side, or until browned and just barely pink in the center. Do this in batches if needed, and remove the chicken to a plate and set aside. Return the skillet to medium heat, add the shallots, and sauté for 2 minutes until they start to become tender. Add the chicken broth and bring to a simmer, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom. Stir in the heavy cream, oregano and thyme,

and heat until the edges of the sauce start to bubble. Sprinkle in the Fontina and Parmesan cheeses and stir until they are melted. Stir in the spinach and sundried tomatoes, and keep at a very low simmer until the spinach is wilted, about 2 minutes. Return the chicken to the pan and allow it to heat through, about 2 minutes. Serve the chicken with the sauce over hot rice

or pasta.

Chicken Tikka Masala both easy, full of flavor By MELISSA D’ARABIAN The Associated Press

I’m a big fan of saving takeout and delivery food for true cravings, not convenience. Even the healthiest of eaters has a few culinary vices – for us, it’s Indian and Thai food and pizza delivery. Sometimes, we just want our favorite pizza delivered (“doorbell pizza” my girls called it when they were younger), and no homemade version will scratch the itch. Fine. But calling in an order of pad thai and dumplings just because we can’t be bothered to spend a few minutes to make our own food is a troubling slippery slope. Delivery isn’t the devil; but save it for cravings. The key to fending off the temptation to order in takeout as a convenience on a busy weeknight is to have a few easy recipes in your toolkit you can whip out at a moment’s notice. And, it has to be easy enough to execute, even if I don’t think of it until 5 p.m. For me, bonus points if it’s ethnic food. Since we don’t have an Indian restaurant within a 20-minute radius of my house, I’ve been recreating the flavors at home. Today’s recipe, Weeknight Chicken Masala, is a bit of a recipe hack; not fully authentic, I’ll admit. But the spices are easy to keep on hand (and truth: if you are missing one of them, make the recipe anyway and the world will continue to spin), the recipe is fast to prepare. This dish hits all the marks – full of flavor, easy, inexpensive, healthy and quick. Serve it over brown rice, zucchini noodles, cauliflower rice or just plain raw baby spinach leaves for extra nutrition.

Weeknight Chicken Tikka Masala Start to finish: 1 hour Servings: 4

Marinade: 1/4 cup plain yogurt (Greek or regular) 1 tablespoon lime juice 1 teaspoon lime zest 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 teaspoons fresh ginger 3 chicken breasts, cut into 1½ inch cubes 3/4 cup chopped onion 1 tablespoon vegetable or olive oil, divided 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger 3 cloves garlic, minced

Add the ginger and garlic and stir. Add in the dry spices and stir with a wooden spoon until very fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the sriracha and tomato paste and cook until tomato paste has deep color and aroma, stirring, about 2 minutes. Add the crushed tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick sauté pan, heat the remaining oil over medium high heat and brown the chicken (remove any excess marinade). Cook the chicken on all sides until golden – it will not be fully cooked in center. Pour the chicken cubes into the bubbling sauce, add between 1/3-3/4 cup water and let it all cook together for 10 minutes, or up to 30 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat, stir in the heavy cream or Greek yogurt and serve with chopped cilantro and lime for garnish.

juice and tomato paste. The result is balanced and rich, and it won’t overwhelm. You will, however, want some warm flour tortillas to sop up the excess. It’s that good. It’s worth going out of your way to get Mexican chocolate for this recipe. It’s less sweet than most chocolates, and it has a pleasantly grainy texture that – like the almonds – adds body to the finished sauce. If you can’t find it, opt for a semi-sweet dark chocolate.

Start to finish: 30 minutes Servings: 6 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 large yellow onion, diced

In a large skillet over medium-high, heat the oil. Add the onion and sauté for 3 minutes. Add the almonds, garlic, cumin, coriander and chilies, then cook, stirring often, for 6 minutes. Add the orange juice and chicken broth, then stir to deglaze the pan. Bring to a simmer, then stir in the tomato paste and oregano. Transfer the mixture to a blender, then add the chocolate. Blend until smooth, then set aside. Return the skillet to medium-high and heat the vegetable oil. Season the chicken with salt, then add it to the skillet and cook for 3 minutes per side. Return the sauce to the skillet, stirring gently to cover the chicken. Return to a simmer, then reduce heat to maintain. Cover and cook for 5 minutes, or until the chicken reaches 165 degrees F. Serve the chicken over rice, spooning mole sauce over the top.

Flavorful meets fast in pork tenderloin By DORIE GREENSPAN The Washington Post

Dorie Greenspan’s Quick-Cook Honey-Mustard Pork Washington Post photo

I’m a slow cook, but even I can get this to the table in under 20 minutes. Someone with kids clamoring for dinner probably can top my personal best time. Because the dish is based on pork tenderloin, it starts off with an advantage. The tenderloin is a quick-cooking cut that, when sautéed, as it is here, should be kept over heat for only a few minutes. Because the meat is cut into two-bite morsels, its total cooking time is even faster than usual. But speed is a convenience; taste is the reason to make this dish. The pork gets three layers of flavor: a spice rub that includes chili powder, ginger, cumin and curry powder; a saucy gloss of honey and apple cider vinegar; and a couple of spoonfuls of Dijon mustard. Quickly mixed in the pan, these ingredients coat the meat and create a sauce that’s good straight.

Dorie Greenspan’s Quick-Cook Honey-Mustard Pork One-pound piece pork tenderloin, trimmed of silver skin and excess fat 1/2 teaspoon chili powder 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon curry powder 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt, or more as needed 2 tablespoons olive oil 1/4 cup honey 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar 2 tablespoons water 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard Freshly ground black pepper White sesame seeds, for serving (optional) Chopped cilantro and/or parsley, for serving

Combine the chili powder, ginger, cumin, curry powder and the 1/2 teaspoon of salt in a small bowl, then sprinkle the mixture over the pork, tossing to coat evenly. Heat the oil in a large skillet, preferably nonstick, over medium heat. Once the oil shimmers, add the pork and cook for a minute or so, turning the pieces so they brown lightly all sides. Pour in the honey, stir to coat the meat and cook for 1 minute. Add the vinegar, quickly followed by the water; stir to deglaze the pan, dislodging any browned bits. Reduce the heat to medium-low; whisk in the mustard to form a smooth sauce, cooking and whisking for a few minutes, just until slightly thickened. Remove from the heat. Taste, and season lightly with salt and/or pepper; it probably will need both. Transfer to a serving platter; sprinkle with the sesame seeds, if using, and the cilantro and/or parsley. Serve warm.

Cut the meat in half lengthwise, then cut it crosswise into slices about 1/2-inch thick. Pat the slices dry with paper towels, then toss them into a mixing bowl.
