Good morning, McHenry County ...

Still suckers for celebrity speeches When some of the world was chattering and/ or tweeting about what celebrities were wearing and the scolding Donald Trump was getting at the Golden Globes, I happily watched the Blackhawks win their third in a row as a local kid got an unconventional hat trick. We already knew what the Blackhawks were wearing – the magnificent sweaters that are the envy of all sports logos – and no one gives a good rip about politics for three 20-minute periods. Most of the players aren’t even American. Watch them, don’t watch them, but I’m out for awards show. It’s not for me to judge those who watch, but I get to control the remote on at least one TV in my household (if no one else is holding them all), and I’m not even surfing near them. It’s not because I don’t love movies or music; I actually do. The music awards shows aren’t quite as bad, just boring, but at least there’s music. Film awards shows are replete with insufferable speeches, mostly from people paid millions to read lines that someone else wrote. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate acting and that it’s a skill. I also appreciate paintings, sculptures, novels and many other skills in the arts, in athletics, even in science or medicine. Just this weekend I got to see one the greatest living guitar legends, Buddy Guy, play live and was in awe of this man’s performance at 80 years young. But at no time did I wonder

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK Kevin Lyons about Mr. Guy’s position on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership Act nor was one offered between filthy guitar licks. For whatever reason, we expect speeches at awards shows, and the Golden Globes was no exception. I still haven’t seen Meryl Streep’s remarks. I think she is a brilliant actor, and if you ask me I’d assume that she, and roughly 97 percent of those in attendance, did not care for Donald Trump. That appears to be the case. Streep is entitled to her opinion, and my interest in it is pretty minimal, although way more people will be interested in her opinion than mine. That’s America. Donald Trump was interested enough to fire off a series of hostile tweets about Streep’s speech, because if anyone knows more about how celebrity’s words mean more than we in this country would care to admit, it’s our incoming celebrity president-elect.

The estimate released Monday is based on 2015 numbers, so a baby born this year is likely to cost even more. It’s a 3 percent increase from the year before, a hike higher than inflation. – Wire report

Cynthia Schumann works on setting up her home office since moving to Huntley last year from Chicago. Schumann was a Chicago police officer for 30 years and has created an online program to help train hotel staffs to recognize signs of domestic violence and how to respond to situations that arise in their workplace.

HOSPITALITY ‘EYES AND EARS’ Employee training course educates on signs of domestic violence By HANNAH PROKOP

hprokop@shawmedia.com HUNTLEY – A couple arguing in the lobby, evidence of a fight in a room and an employee suffering from chronic absenteeism or tardiness all can be signs that hotel staffs should notice and respond to in helping prevent domestic violence, Cynthia Schumann said. Schumann, a 30-year veteran of the Chicago Police Department and a Huntley resident, created an online program designed to help train staffs in the hospitality industry on what to do if they see a potentially unsafe situation for guests or employees.

Through the course, called Responding to Domestic Violence in the Hospitality Industry, Schumann said she’s hoping to increase awareness and education about resources employers, employees and guests have when it comes to domestic violence. It also serves to remind employers to include domestic violence training as part of their anti-violent strategies in the workplace. “The impetus for us in developing this course was that acts of public violence are increasing nationwide, and for us to be prevention-driven, we need to have education and awareness,” Schumann said. “Including domestic violence in anti-violence strategies is really

kind of a no-brainer, but research shows that little to no training in the area of domestic violence is little to nonexistent.” Nearly 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men in the U.S. have been the victim of severe physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Schumann worked with domestic violence cases during her last 18 years with the Chicago police when she served as a community policing sergeant. She developed the program using knowledge from her experience policing, along with Aileen Robinson, the department’s interim domestic

violence operations coordinator. “I think what everybody takes away [from the course] is that they really did not realize the extent to which they’re at risk,” Robinson said. “And they did not, prior to the training, really feel like they had the tools, whether it was the language or the resources, to talk to somebody,” While some might think of domestic violence as only occurring in the home, work is a place where an abuser always can find someone, Robinson said. The course can be geared toward any industry, such as cosmetology,

Officials: Man’s death result of drunken Russian roulette By NATE LINHART

nlinhart@shawmedia.com WALWORTH, WIS. – At least one person has been formally charged in the death of the McHenry man who was fatally shot after a drunken game of Russian roulette, according to court documents. David Bauspies, 36, of McHenry, was found dead Jan. 2 after being shot in an apartment in East Troy, Wisconsin. The defendant, Robert Sterling, was formally charged Friday with first-degree reckless homicide and homicide by negligent handling of a dangerous weapon. East Troy police responded to an apartment about 12:30 p.m. to the report of a gunshot victim, according to the court document filed Friday in Walworth County. Upon arrival, police discovered 31-year-old Sterling, of McHenry, kneeling over Bauspies’ body with a revolver on the floor nearby and blood splattered on the wall, according to court documents. Court records also state that there was blood on both Sterling’s hands and clothing. East Troy Deputy Police Chief Jeremy Swendrowski reported that he later inter-

viewed Tyler M. Odell, who lives in the apartment where the shooting occurred. Odell stated that Bauspies and Sterling had both been drinking beer, enough to get them “pretty drunk.” According to the court document, Odell stated that he took out a .44 Magnum revolver, removed six rounds from the gun and showed it to everyone. He then stated that he put a round in the gun and spun the cylinder as Sterling watched. According to a court document, Odell held the gun up to his own head, but did not pull the trigger. Odell then stated that he then handed the gun to Sterling, who spun the cylinder, held the gun to his own head and pulled the trigger, but it did not fire. According to the court document, Sterling then pointed the gun at Bauspies and pulled the trigger, which caused the gun to fire, killing Bauspies. Sterling admitted to drinking alcohol Jan. 1 and Jan. 2, and stated that he was at Odell’s apartment when they started to play Russian roulette, according to the court document. The defendant also admitted that he was holding the gun when Bauspies was fatally shot. According to the court document, Odell

stated that after the fatal shooting, Odell and another man, who was at Odell’s apartment during the incident but was not charged in the shooting, went over to a friend’s house before coming back to the area of his apartment when police found him. Sterling is being held on a $20,000 bond in Walworth County Jail, and Odell, who has not yet been formally charged, is being held on a $10,000 bond. As a teen in 1999, Sterling also was involved in robbing a Hostess store in McHenry with Shane Lamb, a notorious key witness in the 2002 disappearance and presumed murder of Johnsburg teenager Brian Carrick. In that incident, Sterling fired a gun and a bullet fragment hit a woman in the hip. Dave Bauspies, the victim’s father, said Sterling and his son were best friends and hung out all the time. “We were in total shock when we heard the news,” Bauspies said. “You just absolutely go numb and can’t believe that something like that could possibly happen.” A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help with the Bauspies family’s funeral costs.

Local lawmakers file last-ditch effort to freeze property taxes If not passed, bill dies at midnight Wednesday By KEVIN P. CRAVER

kcraver@shawmedia.com Two McHenry County lawmakers in the Illinois House are making a last-ditch effort in the final two days of lame-duck session to permanently freeze property taxes statewide and ensure that a last-minute income tax increase isn’t rammed through. The move comes as a compromise deal to end an 18-month state budget standoff – including a significant income tax increase – began working its way through the Senate. But the deal only will pave the way for consideration when the new General Assembly gets sworn in Wednesday – there is not enough time to get it through the House, and even if there was, a resolution putting most House members on record as opposing a lameduck income tax increase almost certainly would have made the deal dead on arrival. In one of his last acts as a state lawmaker, Rep. Jack Franks, D-Marengo, amended an existing Senate bill to carry the legislation freezing property taxes. It seeks to set a tax cap of zero percent on all taxing bodies in the state, including home-rule units – the only way local governments could receive any increase is by voter referendum. Franks announced the bill Monday morning, sharing a news conference with several other lawmakers including Rep. David McSweeney, R-Barrington Hills, who masterminded the resolution opposing a lame-duck tax hike. If the bill does not pass by midnight Wednesday, it dies with the swearing-in of the new General Assembly, where it could be refiled. But ensuring that there’s no chance of raising taxes during the last days of the session – the way that the unpopular 67 percent income tax increase was rammed through in 2011 with the help of lawmakers leaving office – was the main point of the conference. The Illinois Constitution gives lawmakers a window in early January to pass controversial legislation after the November election via simple majority

“They have “I, 100 percent, nothing to lose 1,000 percent, and have nobody oppose an income to be accountable tax increase. And to.” then, to add insult to injury, they’re talking about a Rep. Jack Franks beverage tax.” Rep. David McSweeney

Democratic-controlled General Assembly, will not entertain tax increases without the passage of some of his proposed reforms. Democratic leaders have opposed Rauner’s “Turnaround Agenda,” especially points that weaken collective bargaining and prevailing wage laws – they maintain that those items should be negotiated separately from the budget. Among the reforms Rauner is pushing for is a statewide freeze on property taxes, which the Franks bill seeks to address. It heads to the House floor for a vote after clearing committee Monday afternoon. Several studies place Illinois’ property tax burden at either the highest or the second highest in the nation – one of the studies places McHenry County’s burden at the 29th highest by county in the U.S. Property taxes for many homeowners and businesses have stayed the same or increased each year, despite the fact that property values plummeted with the bursting of the housing bubble. Any attempt to freeze property taxes would be fought hard by local government lobbying groups, which hold significant sway over state lawmakers, many of whom started in local government before being elected to Springfield. Franks’ final term as state lawmaker – voters elected him as the first popularly elected McHenry County Board chairman – ends Wednesday. He will be succeeded by Republican Steven Reick to represent the 63rd House District.

rather than a three-fifths supermajority. Franks referred to a lame-duck tax vote as a “zombie apocalypse” with the “walking dead” being lawmakers leaving office who would not have a problem voting to raise taxes. “They have nothing to lose and have nobody to be accountable to,” Franks said. The Senate Assignments Committee on Monday approved eight measures that include an increase in the income tax rate on individual taxpayers – which includes many small businesses – to 4.95 percent, up from 3.75 percent. Other bills would allow borrowing to pay off an $11 billion backlog of overdue bills, increase the minimum wage, expand legalized gambling, consolidate local governments, pay Chicago teachers’ portion of their pensions and enact changes to state employees’ pensions to save the state money. McSweeney called the idea of a tax hike an “absolute disaster” for Illinois taxpayers and businesses. His House Resolution 1494 passed by an 87-12 margin at the end of November, putting 54 Democrats and 33 Republicans on record as opposing raising taxes before the new General Assembly is seated. “I, 100 percent, 1,000 percent, oppose an income tax increase. And then, to add insult to injury, they’re talking about a beverage tax,” McSweeney said. With the exception of a six-month stopgap spending plan that expired Jan. 1, Illinois has limped since July 2015 without an annual budget. Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner, who vetoed • The Associated Press contributed the deficit budget approved by the to this report.

threats and intimidation.” Hillier also said Linder “has made verbal threats and death threats to him since the date they were both arrested,” according to court documents. Sugden objected to the evidence being presented to a jury, arguing the evidence is more prejudicial than probative. Sugden also objected to there being no African-American jurors on the jury panel and asked potential jurors whether they socialized with or had African-American friends. Sugden previously filed a motion in 2015 asking that the case be moved out of McHenry County because there were too few African-Americans in the area to be tried by a jury of his peers. Prather also denied Sugden’s request last year to dismiss the charges against his client, arguing that McHenry County was not the proper place to try the case because not every element of the alleged crime occurred in the area. Linder faces 15 to 30 years in prison if convicted of the charge. Based on previous convictions, he could receive an extended term sentence of 30 to 60 years in prison.

The McHenry Area Chamber of Commerce will host the Women’s Interactive Network Group High Tea luncheon from 11:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. Jan. 18 at the Shah Center, 4100 W. Shamrock, McHenry. Julie Ford of Julz For Life will be presenting on “Creating Time and Energy – Foundational Habits for a Scattered World,” according to a news release from the chamber. Ford will help attendees learn how to prioritize so they can maximize their time and energy. Participants will learn basic truths about where time and energy may be leaking from their lives; how to own a calendar filled with no regrets, instead of regularly displaying their “Badge of Busy;” and create habits that use their energy on the most fulfilling aspects of their home and work lives, according to the news release. To register, call the McHenry chamber at 815-385-4300 or visit www. mchenrychamber.com. The deadline to register is 5 p.m. Monday. The cost is $25 for chamber members and $30 for nonmembers. – Northwest Herald

WOODSTOCK – Attorneys on Monday selected four jurors in the trial for a Zion man who prosecutors allege provided a fatal dose of heroin to an Algonquin woman. Opening statements will begin Tuesday after the eight remaining jurors and two alternates are chosen. The trial is expected to last through the week, with McHenry County Judge Sharon Prather presiding. James F. Linder, 36, was charged in 2015 with drug-induced homicide after he allegedly sold heroin in Zion to Cody N. Hillier, who later ingested the drugs with Danielle Barzyk, 21, in Algonquin. After taking the drugs, Barzyk had trouble breathing, and Hillier contacted police and told them she was having an asthma attack. He later told police she had consumed about 10 hydrocodone pills, but by then it was too late. Barzyk was taken to Advocate Sherman Hospital in Elgin, where she was pronounced dead. Hillier was charged after the incident

and pleaded guilty in May to unlawful possession and delivery of a controlled substance, both felonies. He was sentenced to two years of probation. Hillier is back in McHenry County Jail custody after violating the terms of his probation. He is expected to testify at the trial. Linder was previously offered 20 years in prison by the state’s attorney’s office in exchange for his guilty plea but declined the deal. Prosecutors are expected to present evidence of witness tampering and intimidation by Linder and fellow inmate James F. Cordelle Miller. In JanLinder uary 2015, Hillier identified Linder to police officers as the man who sold him heroin; however, in December 2016, he allegedly sent a mailed statement to Linder’s attorney, Hank Sugden, recanting his previous statements and identification, according to court documents. Prosecutors said that Hillier sent the letter because Linder and Miller “coerced him into writing the affidavit by

Managers, security and human resource personnel are recommended to take the course first, Schumann said, followed by other employees such as doormen and housekeepers. “All of these employees are eyes and ears and see things that other persons may not be privy to,” Schumann said. For example, if a doorman did notice a couple arguing in the lobby, he might tell security to keep an eye on the hall that couple is staying in, Schumann said. Or if a housekeeper is cleaning a room and notices broken furniture, he or she may bring that to the attention of a manager. While domestic violence is a touchy subject, it’s important to notice signs of employees who are suffering, too, Schumann said. If a manager knows how to handle these scenarios, the employee can be introduced to resources such as legal options that they can use to receive help, she said. “We’re not saying to become counselors and advisers and to intervene in family issues,” Schumann said. “What we are saying is to open your eyes and ears and be diligent about potential problems that could arise to keep your workplace safe, that employee safe and ultimately your entire place of employment because of the fact that these instances of public violence are increasing, and that it’s no longer isolated to the home.” Jennifer Chase, managing director of events with the Illinois Hotel and Lodging Association, said Schumann and Robinson have been great resourc-

McHENRY – McHenry-based Pioneer Center for Human Services has chosen interim Chief Executive Officer Sam Tenuto and Chief Financial Officer Frank Samuel as its co-CEOs. The agency, which provides services for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, made the announcement Monday. Pioneer Center’s board of directors spent time evaluating the current operations and the direction of the agency before making the decision to appoint both Tenuto and Samuel, board of directors President Michael Moushey said in a statement. With two CEOs, the organization can continue to realize its mission while remaining fiscally conservative, Moushey said. “It became evident with both Sam’s and Frank’s respective skills and strengths that a co-leadership model would be the most desirable option to support Pioneer Center’s mission, objectives and future success,” Moushey said. Tenuto was hired as interim CEO in December 2015, according to the news

release, and he’s been with Pioneer Center since 2013. He has more than 20 years of experience in developing and operating social services programs. Tenuto has a master’s degree in public health management from Northern Illinois University. “I approach my leadership and work by placing the utmost importance on best serving our community and the Pioneer Center team,” Tenuto said in a statement. “I have chosen this field because the work is important, challenging and a joy as you see others succeed.” Samuel became Pioneer Center’s CFO in April. He has more than 25 years of accounting, finance and operations experience, the release said. He has an MBA in finance from Indiana University. “This ‘divide and conquer’ approach to leadership will allow Sam and I to use our strongest skill sets to lead the agency forward in the most efficient and effective manner,” Samuel said in a statement. “Our primary mission is to serve the clients and the community.” For information on the Pioneer Center, visit www.pioneercenter.org or call 815-344-1230.

Village OKs $6M in incentives for Woodman’s market By HANNAH PROKOP

hprokop@shawmedia.com LAKEMOOR – The village of Lakemoor has approved an agreement that will provide Woodman’s Food Market up to $6 million in incentives over 15 years. The company has plans for a 240,000-square-foot grocery store, gas station, convenience store, car wash and lube center on a 74-acre site at Routes 120 and 12, with room for future big-box retailers. Village officials have contended the property has flooding issues that would take about $10 million to fix, and that no businesses will build on the land unless it’s developed. “It’s very important because Route 12 and 120 is going to be a major commercial hub,” Lakemoor Mayor Todd Weihofen said of the incentive agreement. “Unfortunately, we don’t have the improvements we need in order to bring business there.” According to the agreement, an incentive not to exceed $2 million would be paid to Woodman’s through sales tax revenue, and the village would reimburse Woodman’s up to $4 million for the cost of off-site work. Off-site work would include adding lanes and signals at the intersection and improving the stormwater and sewer systems, Weihofen said. Woodman’s will start receiving the payments the first year the business is in operation, according to the agreement. Half of the yearly sales tax generated by Woodman’s and the gas station will go toward the business. One-third of each payment will go toward developer incentives, and two-

thirds of each payment will be allocated to the off-site improvements reimbursement. The village is hoping to pay for its portion of the site improvements, about $5 million, through a tax increment financing district on the site, Weihofen said. The development process for the land previously was put on hold after a lawsuit filed by Wauconda taxing bodies over the TIF said it wasn’t needed. Dean Krone, attorney representing the Wauconda taxing bodies, previously said in an email he anticipates parties will begin taking depositions at the start of this year. The final purchase of the property still is pending, Weihofen said. Also pending is a development agreement that would include all the “nuts and bolts” of work that need to be completed, he said. Weihofen said he hopes to see construction start at the intersection this year, and Woodman’s officials have said the store could open as early as 2019.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Parker Beam, who carried on his family’s historic bourbon-making tradition as longtime master distiller for Kentucky-based Heaven Hill Distilleries, died Monday after battling amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, better known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. He was 75. Beam’s career as a whiskey maker spanned more than a half century at Bardstown, Kentucky-based Heaven Hill, a family owned and operated distilled spirits company and maker of the popular Evan Williams brand. Beam was responsible for distilling and aging Evan Williams – the world’s No. 2-selling bourbon – and other Heaven Hill whiskeys. “He was a true industry giant long before the current bourbon renaissance,” said Max L. Shapira, president of Heaven Hill Brands. “Without question, he

was committed to our industry and possessed a real passion for the craft of distilling.” Beam’s pedigree as a bourbon maker was impeccable. As a grandnephew of Jim Beam, Parker Beam was born into a family that traces its whiskey-making roots in Kentucky to 1795, when Jacob Beam set up his first still. Park Beam, Parker’s grandfather and namesake, was Jim Beam’s brother. “If you were a Beam, you sort of were destined to follow in the footsteps of either your father, grandfathers, cousins or uncles,” Parker Beam said in a 2007 interview with The Associated Press. Another industry patriarch, Bill Samuels Jr., on Monday called his longtime friend “one of the good guys.” For some people, living up to a legendary family name can be a burden, but not so for Parker, Samuels said. “In his case, he lived up to and exceeded the burden of having the most famous name in bourbon,” said Samuels,

Parker Beam was among a small fraternity of master distillers who oversaw production at various Kentucky distilleries during bourbon’s revival. According to a 2014 report by the University of Louisville’s Urban Studies Institute, distilling contributes $3 billion in gross state product to Kentucky’s economy every year, up from $1.8 billion two years ago. Kentucky bourbon and Tennessee whiskey exports shot past $1 billion for the first time in 2013, according to the Distilled Spirits Council. By 2015, combined U.S. revenues for bourbon, Tennessee whiskey and rye whiskey rose 7.8 percent to $2.9 billion, while bourbon and Tennessee whiskey exports topped $1 billion for the third straight year, the group said.

Senate budget plan to end deadlock stalls By JOHN O’CONNOR The Associated Press

SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois Senate’s plan to end the nation’s longest state budget deadlock fizzled Monday after Republicans declared they wanted more time to ensure Gov. Bruce Rauner’s demands are met before approving a tax increase. The Senate’s planned action would have been symbolic. Democratic President John Cullerton and Christine Radogno, the Republican leader, knew there wouldn’t be time in the Legislature’s last two scheduled work days to push the package through the House and get it to Rauner. But Cullerton and Radogno were hoping to distinguish the Senate from what has become a nasty battle of wills between Republican Rauner and House Speaker Michael Madigan. Madigan, the resolute Chicago Democrat who has run the House for most of the last three decades. Rauner insists that lawmakers pass some of his reforms aimed at helping business and reducing the influence of labor unions. Madigan says Rauner’s demands have nothing to do with the budget. “We’re two years in and we don’t have a budget,” Cullerton said. “It’s embarrassing for the state and there’s been real damage that has happened to

Legislation would require schools to test for lead

CHICAGO – Illinois elementary schools and day care centers would have to test drinking water sources for lead and notify parents of the results under legislation proposed Monday. Schools and care facilities would be responsible for the cost of the one-time testing, which environmental experts estimate could run from $500 to $5,000 per facility. The plan, unveiled as lawmakers gathered for the final days of the current legislative session, would apply to all public and private schools with students up to grade 5 and facilities built before 2000. The proposal follows the lead-tainted water crisis in Flint, Michigan, which shed light on the dangers of lead contamination.

Radogno said the goal is to move quickly, to get Senate approval before month’s end. The legislation would have increased the personal income tax rate to 4.95 percent from 3.75 percent to narrow a multibillion-dollar annual deficit and $11 billion in unpaid state bills. But

it would also have included a streamlining of purchasing, local government consolidation, reform of the tax code and limits to lawmakers’ terms. Those ideas could meet Rauner’s desire to make business and political climate changes to boost business and taxpayer confidence in the state. But Republicans were just seeing the plan Monday and didn’t want to rush,

The Chicago Transit Authority said the effort is the largest capital project in the transit agency’s history.

It will also construct a Red-Purple bypass to improve service while reducing delays and overcrowding.

Obama gives Chicago $1B for transit as he leaves office

CHICAGO – Chicago is to receive more than $1 billion from President Barack Obama’s administration to help modernize the city’s Red and Purple lines as part of a public transit construction project to create an estimated 6,000 jobs. The funding was finalized Monday, a day before Obama is scheduled to give his farewell address in his hometown. Officials from Chicago and Illinois took the opportunity to thank Obama for not forgetting his roots during his time as president. “Tomorrow, the president is going to come here to thank Chicago,” U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin said during a Monday morning news conference announcing the funding agreement. “Today I want to make sure that we thank him. Time and again the Obama administration has not forgotten where he came from.”

BBB warns about Obama speech ticket scams

CHICAGO – The Better Business Bureau is warning against buying tickets to President Barack Obama’s farewell speech in Chicago on online marketplaces. Tickets were handed out for free on Saturday morning in Chicago, prompting thousands of people to wait for hours in single-digit temperatures. Obama’s speech is scheduled for Tuesday night at McCormick Place. The Chicago Tribune reported that by Sunday auctions were posted on websites such as eBay and Craigslist asking for as much as $5,000 apiece for the tickets.

Radogno said. The current Legislature ends its session Tuesday and a new one is seated Wednesday, so there would be no time to move the proposal to the House. The state has limped along since the middle of 2015 without an annual spending plan. State government has functioned largely because of court-ordered spending on social services and periodic appropriations by lawmakers. But more than 1 million people have been cut from services such as mental health treatment, elderly care, domestic violence assistance and cancer screenings, as well as financial aid for college, and the state’s financial ratings have dropped. With a temporary, six-month budget having expired Jan. 1, the House approved a measure providing what sponsor Rep. Greg Harris called a “lifeline” for education and social services. The Chicago Democrat’s plan would take money coming in from income tax revenue and provide $258 million for social services and $400 million for higher education, including $191 million for the popular, income-based Monetary Award Program for college tuition. Rauner’s office said the governor opposes that plan unless it is accompanied by other things he wants, such as a property tax freeze.

It’s unclear whether those tickets are legitimate or can legally be sold. Steve Bernas, president of the Better Business Bureau of Chicago and Northern Illinois, warned against buying the tickets, saying “there’s no way to verify these tickets.”

Fla. shooting suspect gets public defender in court By CURT ANDERSON The Associated Press

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – The Iraq war veteran held in the fatal shooting of five people inside Fort Lauderdale’s airport was appointed a federal public defender on Monday after telling a judge that he has no job and only $5 or $10 in the bank. Esteban Santiago, 26, spoke clearly during a brief hearing before U.S. Magistrate Judge Alicia Valle, who ordered him held until his next hearings. Shackled in a red jumpsuit in the heavily guarded federal courtroom, Santiago answered mostly yes or no to questions, and told the judge he understands the charges, which include committing violence against people at an international airport resulting in death, and two firearms offenses. She told him the death penalty could apply. “We are telling you the maximum penalty allowed by law so that you understand the seriousness of the charges,” the judge said. He said he had been in the Army, where he made about $15,000 a year. He mentioned expenses including $560 in monthly rent, plus phone and other utility bills. He said he owns no property and doesn’t have a vehicle. He said he had worked for a security company, Signal 88, in Anchorage, Alaska, until November, making $2,100 a month, but currently only had $5 to $10 in the bank. Given his finances, the judge decided he’s eligible for government lawyers at taxpayer expense. Valle set a detention hearing for Jan. 17, followed by an arraignment for entering a plea for Jan. 23. More than a dozen officers kept watch outside the courthouse, carrying rifles and wearing bulletproof vests. There were also mounted police and K-9 units.

Esteban Santiago is taken from the Broward County main jail as he is transferred Monday to the federal courthouse in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Santiago is accused of fatally shooting several people at a crowded Florida airport baggage claim and faces airport violence and firearms charges that could mean the death penalty if he’s convicted. The charges don’t specifically use the word murder, but the effects of one of the gun charges and the airport charge are the same because they cover actions that result in a person’s death and can result in capital punishment, former federal prosecutor David S. Weinstein said. “Under federal law, there are many statutes that cover the killing of another human being and unlike state statutes, they are not specifically titled murder. But the elements of the crime and the definition of murder are the same,” he said. State authorities could file first-degree murder charges against Santiago, but that’s unnecessary for now, Weinstein added, because there is no statute of limitations on murder. If something were to go wrong in federal court, the state could then proceed against him, he said. No links to international terrorism have been found, the FBI has said. But if they surface, federal prosecutors could obtain an updated grand jury indictment to add terror-related charges, Weinstein added. “Their focus right now will be on the existing three charges and the continuing

investigation,” he said. Santiago has been in custody since Friday’s shooting at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. The FBI said Santiago flew on a one-way ticket aboard a Delta flight from Anchorage to Fort Lauderdale. The 11½-hour flight has a 2½-hour layover in Minneapolis, one of the longest itineraries within the U.S. He checked a single piece of luggage: a gun box for his Walther 9 mm semi-automatic pistol and two magazines of ammunition, according to an FBI affidavit. Agents say he retrieved the box in baggage claim and loaded his weapon in a bathroom stall before opening fire on fellow passengers, killing five and wounding six others. In November, Santiago walked into an FBI field office in Alaska with a handgun and his infant child, saying the U.S. government was controlling his mind and forcing him to watch Islamic State group videos, authorities said. Officers seized the weapon and local officers took him to get a mental health evaluation. His girlfriend picked up the child. On Dec. 8, the gun was returned to Santiago.

Poll: Obama won nation’s approval, didn’t unite it By JOSH LEDERMAN and EMILY SWANSON The Associated Press

WASHINGTON – More Americans feel Barack Obama’s presidency divided the country than feel it brought people together, a new poll shows. Yet he leaves office held in high esteem by a solid majority. Eight years after Obama’s historic election, just 27 percent see the U.S. as more united as a result of his presidency, according to an Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll conducted after the 2016 election. Far more – 44 percent – say it’s more divided. Those figures underscore one of the key contradictions of Obama’s presidency. By and large, Americans like him. Yet, aside from the big “Obamacare” health care overhaul, he has been unable to translate that approval into congressional majorities to fulfill many of his goals. “It’s one of the few regrets of my presidency – that the rancor and suspicion between the parties has gotten worse instead of better,” Obama said last January in his final State of the Union address. Still, 57 percent say they view Obama favorably, putting him way ahead of his predecessor, George W. Bush, and on par with Bill Clinton at the end of their two terms. Clinton had the same 57 percent but Bush just 40, according to

President Barack Obama signs the health care bill March 23, 2010, in the East Room of the White House in Washington. Gallup polling at the time. Bush’s father fared better, with 62 percent viewing him favorably at the end of his time in office, despite his failure to win a second term. Just over half say Obama’s presidency has been great or good. Thirty-seven percent view him unfavorably. Did he keep his promises? He did not, in the minds of 2 of 3 Americans, though 44 percent say he tried. There’s frustration even among many longtime Obama supporters about the lack of movement on major priorities such as overhauling the nation’s immigration laws, enacting gun control measures and shutting the pris-

on in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. “He acted very presidential, but he just couldn’t get things done,” said Dale Plath, a retired sales manager from Mason City, Iowa. He said he voted for Obama the first time, voted against him the second, and this year, Plath said: “I voted for change, frankly” – in the form of Donald Trump. “Yes, I understand the Republicans were against Obama,” Plath said. “But there have been other presidents in the same situation, and they were able to pull through.” Obama leaves office more popular than he was just a few years ago. In December 2014, the month after Democrats

lost control of the Senate, just 41 percent said they viewed him favorably in an AP-GfK poll. His complicated legacy comes into sharper focus when it comes to race. Nearly 8 in 10 African-Americans view the nation’s first black president favorably, but far fewer see his presidency as having yielded the type of profound changes for black Americans that many had hoped. Just 43 percent of African-Americans say Obama made things better for black people, while roughly half say they see no difference. Six percent say Obama has made things worse. For Ronald Thornton, a 62-yearold African-American from Chicago, change has come only around the margins. Thornton said he views Obama very favorably, but he added that even Obama’s biggest achievement – the Affordable Care Act, or “Obamacare” – had come with downsides for people like him. “The first year that it went into effect, I didn’t have insurance,” said Thornton, who later purchased care through the Obamacare marketplaces. “I was penalized for it that year, and I really don’t have money to pay for that penalty.” By and large, Americans’ views of Obama break along partisan lines. Nearly 9 in 10 Democrats and people who lean Democratic view him favorably, while 3 in 4 Republicans and GOP-leaning Americans have a negative view.

Trump unfiltered: Tweets reveal his interests, insecurities By LISA LERER

The Associated Press WASHINGTON – His message came at the start of one of the busiest weeks of Donald Trump’s transition to the White House. It’s a week when he and his team are preparing eight Cabinet picks for confirmation hearings, finalizing appointments and gearing up for his first news conference as president-elect. But at 6:29 a.m. Monday, Trump was focused on what seemed like a less presidential problem: a five-minute Golden Globes speech in which actress Meryl Streep had suggested he was a “bully.” “One of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood,” Trump tweeted out to his 19.2 million followers. For better or worse, the president-elect’s social media feed is offering a daily glimpse into the interests, insecurities and insults that weigh on the next leader of the free world. Many presidents have privately bristled at the attacks, criticism and mockery the office can bring. They’ve fumed behind the walls of the Oval Office and

complained about slights to their aides and wives. But Trump’s use of Twitter is giving Americans and the world something they’ve never seen before. “This is unprecedented access to the president. The presidency usually has a firewall,” said Timothy Naftali, a professor of history and public service at New York University. “By using Twitter, Mr. Trump has decided to remove the filter that has served so many of his predecessors so well.” From his gleaming Manhattan skyscraper, Trump fires off messages starting at dawn. In the past week, he’s slammed the “dishonest” media, insulted Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer as his party’s “head clown,” praised 16-year-old Inauguration singer Jackie Evancho and ripped Arnold Schwarzenegger for low ratings on “The Celebrity Apprentice.” The tweets, which frequently feature commentary about specific media reports, give a sense of what Trump is reading and watching. They ricochet across the globe and news networks. The Streep tweet

alone was reposted more than 27 million times, prompting dozens of news reports and hours of TV commentary. Even his spelling errors have prompted news coverage: Last month, he was mocked for using the word “unpresidented” instead of “unprecedented.” Unfettered, stream-of-consciousness commentary is not new for Trump, who began harnessing the social media network to further his brand long before running for president. But, as president, his missives will now carry global ramifications. Last week, Xinhua, the Chinese state run news agency, published a commentary begging Trump to stop commenting online, saying that foreign policy “isn’t child’s play.” The piece came after Trump repeatedly jabbed Beijing on Twitter. “Indulging in ‘Twitter diplomacy’ is undesirable,” said the headline. Trump is hardly the first president to take umbrage with what he views as unfair attacks. Behind closed doors, Richard Nixon was notoriously vengeful, Lyndon Johnson often

thin-skinned and Dwight Eisenhower prone to rage, Naftali said. But past presidents went to great lengths to keep their personal emotions private, carefully channeling communications through staff. “The White House staff has been designed to soften the hard edges of the boss,” says Naftali. “You’re representing the United States. Do you want the United States to look angry?” President Barack Obama’s presidential Twitter account was carefully launched in May 2015, with a press release, official photo and benign online jokes with former President Bill Clinton. Messages are edited by aides and strategically timed. Trump has taken the opposite approach. His messages blindside his staff, who admit they wake up and check Twitter to see what’s been occupying their boss overnight. “I do look there first, because that’s what’s going to drive the news,” incoming White House press secretary Sean Spicer said last week at the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics.

He has continued to be a commanding presence during the transition, working alongside incoming White House chief of staff Reince Priebus and senior adviser Steve Bannon. He’s played a key role in coordinating Trump’s contacts with foreign leaders and has been talking with foreign government officials himself, according to a person with knowledge of the conversations. Last week, Kushner and Bannon – the controversial conservative media executive – met with British Foreign Minister Boris Johnson. Kushner and Bannon have also worked closely on issues related to Israel, including discussions over moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, which could inflame tensions in the Middle East, and on the Trump administration’s response to a United Nations Security Council measure condemning Israeli settlements. Kushner is also weighing in on domestic policy. He joined other Trump advisers Monday night for a meeting with House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., on tax reform. He championed the pick of his friend Gary Cohn, the president of Goldman Sachs, for a top White House economic post, and Cohn’s influence within Trump’s team is said to be growing. He’s been a conduit between Trump’s team and the private sector, a role transition officials said would continue in the White House.

NEW YORK – President-elect Donald Trump appointed his influential son-in-law Jared Kushner as a White House senior adviser Monday, putting the young real estate executive in position to exert broad sway over both domestic and foreign policy, particularly Middle East issues and trade negotiations. Trump has come to rely heavily on Kushner, who is married to the president-elect’s daughter Ivanka. Since the election, the political novice has been one of the transition team’s main liaisons to foreign governments, communicating with Israeli officials and meeting Sunday with Britain’s foreign minister. He’s also huddled with congressional leaders and helped interview Cabinet candidates. Ivanka Trump, who also played a significant role advising her father during the presidential campaign, will not be taking a formal White House position. Transition officials said the mother of three young children wanted to focus on moving her family from New York to Washington. Kushner’s own eligibility for the White House could be challenged, given a 1967 law meant to bar government officials from hiring relatives. Kushner lawyer Jamie Gorelick argued Monday that the law does not apply to the West Wing. She cited a later congressional measure to allow the president “unfettered” and “sweeping” authority in hiring staff. In a statement, Trump said Kushner will be an “invaluable member of my team as I set and execute an ambitious agenda.” Kushner will resign as CEO of his family’s real estate company and as publisher of the New York Observer. He will also divest “substantial assets,” Gorelick said. The lawyer said Kushner would not be taking a salary. Ivanka Trump will also be leaving her executive roles at the Trump Organization – her father’s real estate company – and her own fashion brands. Kushner, who turns 36 on Tuesday, emerged as one of Trump’s most powerful campaign advisers during his father-in-law’s often unorthodox presidential bid – a calming presence in an otherwise chaotic campaign. Soft-spoken and press-shy, he was deeply in-

ANOTHER VIEW

A repeal and retreat disaster Republicans last week kicked off their dominance of Washington by vowing to push through an unpopular and unwise unraveling of the Affordable Care Act, an imperfect law that nevertheless has done much good. Scaling back the policy is “the first order of business,” Vice President-elect Mike Pence promised after a strategy meeting on Capitol Hill. At the same time, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, pledged that Republicans would not pull the rug out from under people currently benefiting from the plan. How can Republicans keep both promises? Better not to ask them. They seem to have no clue. After last year’s election, Republicans first floated the idea of “repeal and delay” – that is, formally canceling large pieces of the law while delaying the phaseout for perhaps several years, giving Congress time to pass a replacement. At first blush, this sounds reasonable (if wrongheaded). It is in fact unworkable. The ACA depends on private insurers participating in competitive state insurance marketplaces. Without government incentives, and with no reason to believe their time and effort will pay off under a nebulous new policy down the road, insurers will not continue serving markets that are in any case set to disappear. To avoid a repeal-and-delay disaster, Republicans would have to pour money into Obamacare, a move they ardently opposed when the goal was fixing the program rather than tearing it down. Bottom line: Without a replacement plan passed and in place at the time of repeal, policy uncertainty will drive insurers to quit the markets and desert their patients. Despite agitating for repeal for the past half-decade, Republicans have failed to unite around any Obamacare alternative, and they do not appear close now. Detailed proposals that have circulated among Republicans over the past several years almost certainly would result in a much skimpier system – covering fewer Americans and degrading the quality of coverage for low-income and sick people who manage to buy it. Republicans are bumping into some awkward facts, where ideology cannot repeal basic logic. There is no health care reform that will lower premiums, cut deductibles and increase choice all at the same time, despite President-elect Donald Trump’s rhetoric. The only way for Ryan to keep his promise is for Republicans to shore up the system, not engage in repeal and ... whatever. The Washington Post

Commenters blend fact, fiction

There’s a section in the nearly 600-page 2016 edition of the Associated Press Stylebook – a journalist’s bible to all things writing and reporting – that warns against mistaking the internet for an encyclopedia. The excerpt reads: “The internet is a sprawling information repository. Anything you find should be assessed and vetted with the same care that you use for everything else. ... Be especially careful about websites and social networks that allow anyone to contribute text, photos and other information.” We encourage – better yet, challenge – you to employ the same pause in thinking in your daily life. In the world of social media and online commenting, fiction and fact often are blended, generating a fast-moving flow

of news that works like the ageold game of “telephone” on a much larger level. In news stories, we do our best to deal in facts by verifying information with highly reliable sources. If it doesn’t come on the record from a trusted source, it isn’t reported. In crime, there are police and prosecutors who provide information. There are arrests and charges filed. Court documents are public record and citable forms of information. In government, there are city officials, public documents and meetings from which we routinely generate stories. Often we report on fluid situations where the story changes or develops on a day-to-day or even hour-to-hour basis. As we confirm information in those cases, we report it. We post these stories to our website

and then share them to social media to get the confirmed information out. In recent weeks, though, we’ve been troubled by the unconfirmed and even wild accusations that have made it back to us in the form of online comments to these stories. These often baseless claims are harmful. They are so often not factual and yet are spread to others by those who read them as in a game of “telephone.” By the end of the line, who knows what’s true and what’s not? In a time where nearly everyone has a social media voice, it’s up to you what kind of information you want to spread.

Rutland politics prevails, for now

Politics raised its ugly head at a special Rutland Township meeting to consider a matter relating to the April Consolidated Election. At issue was the legitimacy of Margaret Sanders’ petition for her candidacy as Rutland Township supervisor. Sanders is completing her second term and is seeking election to a third term. A Rutland Township resident filed the complaint at the request of two Rutland Township officials. They and a new candidate for the assessor position testified during the meeting. If you attended township meetings, you would have observed the poor working relationship between a group of trustees and the clerk toward the supervisor. It was less than cordial. It could be characterized as antagonistic, disrespectful and laced with acrimony. That background couldn’t help but influence the perception of politics

VIEWS Rich Miller mess with Madigan. In June of 2015, the governor launched an expensive statewide TV advertising campaign attacking Madigan, blaming him for the failure to cave to the governor’s demands for pro-business/anti-union reforms in exchange for a state budget solution. Shortly thereafter, the governor moved into the primary season, spending millions more. And then he started spending real money on state legislative races in June of 2016, an unheard-of early start date that actually came while lawmakers still were in session. Rauner even began paying for Chicago broadcast TV ads for Rep. Mike McAuliffe (R-Chicago) in early August, also an unheard-of start date. And the governor launched a TV ad touting his support for term limits, a not-so-subtle dig at the House Speaker’s record longevity. Republican candidates picked up four House seats during last year’s campaign. But days after the election ended, the state GOP launched a new website, BossMadigan.com. The site is filled with profiles of Democrats who the Republicans say are really

as usual for the purpose of bringing Sanders’ candidacy to an end. A casual observation after the 2-1 vote sustaining the complaint had the appearance of ignoring the appeal by the township and defense attorneys for the panel to base its decision on the preponderance of evidence. Many residents who attended the meeting were dismayed at the disregard for the absence of incriminating evidence. The panel consisted of two township trustees and one resident. The two trustees voted to sustain the complaint, and the one resident voted to deny the complaint. An appeal will be filed seeking to reverse the decision. The reviewing panel will not include any township officials. The proceedings reminds us politicians with the same mindset sometimes will agree that 2 + 2 = 3. Jim Darow Huntley

just Madigan’s pawns. The party also is spending money on social media to spread the word about those naughty Democrats who’ve allegedly dared to align themselves with their own state party chairman. This is still a free country, and Rauner can do whatever he wants. The House Speaker is, after all, notorious for holding floor votes on ridiculously political bills. Madigan must’ve forced Republicans to vote against a phony “property tax freeze” bill 15 times to bash them with their own votes during the campaign. And this Madigan stuff goes back decades. We’ve always been in constant campaign mode in Illinois. Rauner simply is upping the ante with actual yearround campaign spending. So for the governor to deny involvement or even knowledge of campaign activities when his entire organization and others around him have been deeply in campaign mode since Day One defies all credibility. This is not some ancillary activity. To put it as simply as possible, Rauner has used campaign tactics to try to force a wedge between Democrats and Madigan. That’s what IllinoisGO was supposed to be about – an alternative source of campaign money for Democrats who defied Madigan, or a bludgeon against those who stuck with him. Everything Rauner has

done since then has had the same two goals regarding Madigan. And yet, when asked again about this topic just last week, Rauner said, “I’m not getting involved in any of the General Assembly’s decisions on their leadership.” Right. But this obsession with Madigan means Rauner has defined his own term in office as a crusade against the Great White Wale. Yes, there is plenty of public support for that. Madigan is the least popular politician in this state, and perhaps in the entire country. “Moby Dick” didn’t end well for the pursuer, however. Madigan’s top people have been saying for more than 18 months they know they can’t move their own guy’s poll numbers up very much, so their plan is to drag Rauner down to Madigan’s level. Rauner eagerly has followed Madigan into that rabbit hole and failed to accomplish much of anything else in the process. At last check by a Republican pollster, the governor’s favorable rating was 36 percent, with an unfavorable rating of 48. He’s gonna need every bit of that $50 million, and a whole lot more.

Back in December, Gov. Bruce Rauner was asked by a Chicago TV reporter whether he planned to run for re-election. Rauner said he wasn’t focused on such things. Just three days later, Gov. Rauner contributed $50 million to his own campaign fund. So, either he suddenly focused himself on the 2018 campaign, or he simply wasn’t telling the truth. Rauner does this a lot. Whenever he’s been asked about the Illinois Republican Party’s blistering post-election campaign attacks tying Democrats to House Speaker Michael Madigan, Rauner has said he doesn’t pay attention to that stuff – even though he has given his party almost all of its funding during the past year and even though he often has referred to himself as the leader of the state party and put his own people into positions at the party. Look, all politicians play with the truth. But this is getting to be a bit too much to bear because these actions are at the very core of what Rauner is doing as governor. You will recall some of Rauner’s buddies set up a huge and ostensibly Democratic political action committee (IllinoisGO) right around the time Rauner was inaugurated in January of 2015. That campaign committee was, in reality, solely designed to

McDonald’s sells China business in $2.1B deal By KELVIN CHAN

A security guard rests Aug. 2 near a giant logo for McDonald’s in northern China’s Tianjin Municipality. Fast-food giant McDonald’s said Monday that it is selling a controlling stake in its China business to a group of investors led by stateowned Chinese conglomerate Citic in a deal worth up to $2.1 billion.

The Associated Press HONG KONG – Fast-food giant McDonald’s is selling a controlling stake in its China business to a group of investors led by state-owned Chinese conglomerate Citic in a deal worth up to $2.1 billion, the companies said Monday. The transaction is part of a global business overhaul being carried out by the American company to keep up with changing tastes that have resulted in declining sales. Under the terms of the deal, Citic Ltd. and i ts i nv es tm en t management unit Citic Capital will acquire 52 percent of the business while another partMcDonald’s ner, Washingannouncement ton-based private equity firm The Carlyle Group, will own 28 percent. McDonald’s will retain a 20 percent stake. About two-thirds of the China operation’s 2,640 outlets, including 240 in Hong Kong, that are now owned by McDonald’s will be refranchised. The China business, which employs more than 120,000 people, is valued at up to $2.1 billion, according to the

agreement. Under McDonald CEO Steve Easterbook’s restructuring plan launched in 2015, the company wants franchisees to take over more company-owned outlets, giving local managers more decision-making power to respond to Asian customers. McDonald’s is China’s second-biggest fast-food company after Yum Brands’ KFC, which has more than 5,000 locations. It has faced trouble recently in Chi-

na after it was caught in a food safety scandal when a supplier was found selling expired meat. McDonald’s will get cash and new shares under the terms of the agreement, which is for 20 years. The deal, which still needs approval from regulators, is expected to be completed by mid-2017. Oak Brook, Illinois-based McDonald’s and its partners plan to add 1,500 restaurants in China and Hong Kong over the next five years to capitalize on

booming demand from the country’s growing middle class which has money to spend on eating out. “As disposable incomes rise, people will continue to spend more on leisure and on dining out, and there is particularly great growth potential in tier three and four cities,” the announcement said, referring to less-known provincial cities with large populations. “As such, the market for Western Quick Service Restaurants is expected to continue to grow rapidly.”

NEW YORK – Wayne Brady is about to get his shot in “Hamilton” – in Chicago. Producers of the hit musical said Monday that the comedian and game show host will play Aaron Burr from Jan. 17 to April 9 at The PrivateBank Theatre in Chicago. Brady won a Primetime Emmy Award for “Whose Line Is It Anyway” and a Daytime Emmy Award as host of his own talk show, “The Wayne Brady Show.” Brady is no stranger to the stage, making his Broadway debut in 2004 in “Chicago” and last year slipping into high heels to play Lola in “Kinky Boots.” Brady will take over Burr from Tony Award-nominee Joshua Henry, who will take his character on the road in the show’s first national tour, which starts in San Francisco.

Celebrities to turn out for women’s march on Washington WASHINGTON – Hollywood will be turning out in force for the women’s march on Washington set to follow Donald Trump’s inauguration. Actress America Ferrera will attend the march and chair its “artist table,” organizers said Monday. Other notables who plan to participate include Amy Schumer, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand and Zendaya. “Since the election, so many fear that their voices will go unheard,” Ferrara said in a statement. “As artists, women, and most importantly dedicated Americans, it is critical that we stand together in solidarity for the protection, dignity and rights of our communities.” Johansson, criticizing the incoming administration for “attacking” reproductive rights, said she would participate to “make my voice heard and stand up for what I believe in.” Organizers expect more than 100,000 people to turn out for the march on Jan. 21, one day after Trump’s inauguration. Chelsea Handler will lead a sister march in Park City, Utah, one of more than 150 solidarity marches planned around the country and the world that day. Others who plan to participate in the Washington march include Uzo Aduba, Lea DeLaria, Diane Guerrero, Margo Jefferson, Hari Nef and Constance Wu. A number of other celebrities will either participate in the march or express solidarity with the marchers in other ways, organizers said, including Katy Perry, Julianne Moore, Cher and Debra Messing.

PARIS – French police arrested 17 people Monday in the October theft of more than $10 million worth of jewelry from Kim Kardashian West, who was tied up and locked in a bathroom after armed robbers forced their way into her rented Paris apartment. Authorities said police seized weapons and a large amount of cash in multiple raids that took place starting around 6 a.m. in different locations in the Paris region and the south of France. The suspects ranged in age from 23 to 72, and included several known for prior robberies and other crimes, according to a police document seen by The Associated Press. Among the items seized were an automatic pistol and other weapons, as well as $147,500 in cash, said police officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not allowed to speak publicly about the continuing investigation. Earlier this month, the starlet broke her silence on the robbery in a teaser for the Kardashian family’s reality show, telling two of her sisters her thoughts at the time: “They’re going to shoot me in the back. There’s no way out.” A spokeswoman for the reality star said she had no comment Monday. The Paris prosecutors’ office confirmed the arrests, but declined to say whether they included five people that police have said took part in the actual robbery.

LOS ANGELES – U2 will play the entirety of its classic 1987 album, “The Joshua Tree,” at each stop during a summer stadium tour to celebrate the 30th anniversary of its release.

The North American leg of the tour kicks off May 12 in Vancouver and wraps up on July 1 in Cleveland, before heading to Europe. The tour includes a June stop at the Bonnaroo Festival in Tennessee. Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers and OneRepublic will alternate opening for U2 on the North American leg.

Products get, um, ‘smart’ at CES gadget show By BREE FOWLER, MAE ANDERSON and ANNE D’INNOCENZIO

gram isn’t enough, why not wear them? A California startup called Pop-I has a backpack for just that. A built-in digital screen displays photos you just snapped or have in your photo gallery. The backpacks will come out later this year and range from $99 to $399, depending on material and screen size. Pop-I is looking to expand to clothing and other products, too.

LAS VEGAS – Here’s a morning routine for you. After the alarm on your smartphone goes off, it’s time to roll out of your “smart” bed and give your hair a good run through with your app-connected brush. Don’t forget to use your smart toothbrush in front of your smart mirror. After that, your smart pillbox will remind you to take your medication. And remember to put on your smart jeans, so they can give you directions while you leave your phone in the pocket. Sound like a typical morning? Tech companies at the CES gadget show in Las Vegas would like it to be. They unveiled products that do all these things and more at the convention Jan. 5-8. But do we really need them – or even want them? “When an industry is nascent, you will see experimentation,” said Mark Hung, a vice president at Gartner Research. “Companies will throw things against the wall to see what sticks.” You decide whether these are cool You can reply with a digital heart by innovations or just junk. rotating the heart on the box.

Want to look smart while tooling around an unfamiliar neighborhood? How about a pair of vibrating jeans to get you where you’re going? The jeans from Spinali Design, another French startup, will vibrate on your right or left hip to let you know which direction you should head. Sure, a smartwatch can do the same thing, but why get something that can do more? If that’s too much clothing for you, try bikinis that buzz when you’re out in the sun too long and need to apply more sunscreen. The jeans cost about $100, and the bikinis about $140.

E-skin

Want body monitoring that rivals that of an intensive care unit? Xenoma’s “e-skin” is essentially a shirt with sensors that measure movement, breathing, pressure, perspiration and body temperature. The shirt connects wirelessly to a smartphone or personal computer for real-time number crunching. Developers at the Tokyo-based Xenoma say the shirt can be used for health monitoring, fitness tracking and even virtual-reality gaming. But they’re still working on it, so it’s not available for sale yet.

TECH BRIEFS The big thing in TV sets this year is ... big TV sets

LAS VEGAS – What’s new in television sets this year? Incrementally better pictures, larger screens and cheaper prices – and that’s about it. True, set manufacturers are bombarding consumers with a whole series of buzzwords – OLED, 4K, 8K, HDR, QLED, wide color gamut – intended to spur excitement and generate sales. Flashy new sets with these supposedly “must-have” features got the spotlight Wednesday at the annual CES gadget show in Las Vegas.

But when it comes down to it, none of these amount to revolutionary improvements for your living room. Set manufacturers may not have run out of technological tricks yet, but for this year, at least, they’re reduced to improving what’s already out there. “That’s a good thing,” said Gartner analyst Brian Blau, looking for the bright side. “Products need to be improved.”

Cruise company Carnival gets personal with concierge tech

LAS VEGAS – What if your room on a cruise ship were to unlock automatically

as you approach, or if the wait staff could bring your favorite cocktail before you even ask? Carnival Corp., the operator of such cruise lines as Princess, Holland America and Carnival, wants to make that happen so it can get cozier with its guests and make cruises even more personalized. Carnival used the CES gadget show in Las Vegas on Wednesday to unveil new concierge technology designed to help crew members anticipate and respond to passengers’ needs. It will rely on sensors and wearable trackers, and is scheduled to debut on the Regal Princess cruise

ship in November. The leisure-cruise industry is playing catch-up with travel peers like hotels and airlines, which now let you unlock rooms with a smartwatch or fly with a boarding pass on your phone. Personalization is important as cruise ships get bigger and come across as impersonal, said Mike Driscoll, editor-in-chief of Cruise Week, an industry publication. Personalization also can help cruise companies attract more first-timers, including tech-savvy millennials.

Smart shelves

Web retailers have plenty of data on their customers. Some of these online technologies even can track shoppers from site to site to lure them back with what’s known as retargeting ads – promos targeted to what that shopper has looked at before, but didn’t actually buy. Smart shelves with sensors promise the same kind of in-depth consumer behavior analytics at retail stores. At a Kroger store in Cold Spring, Ohio, shelves show digitized price tags and information about the products. The next step is to tie that to individual shoppers. For example, for a shopper who prefers gluten-free products, the price tags could light up in the aisle where all the gluten-free options are. The company says this will all be done with the customer’s permission.

Robots

Amazon and other retailers long have used robots in warehouses to help package and ship orders. But what about interacting with shoppers? Home improvement retailer Lowe’s is testing robots in one of its San Jose, California, stores and plans to roll them out to 10 more stores in the state this year. Shoppers also will start seeing ro-

bots that interact with them more deeply. Japanese joint venture SoftBank Robotics is testing a 4-foot humanoid robot called Pepper at two Westfield Malls in California. They greet shoppers and can do a little dance, but have the potential to send messages geared to people’s age and gender through facial recognition. SoftBank Robotics says it’s working with clothing retailers to help suggest outfits to shoppers.

Interactive mirrors

High-end clothing stores are testing interactive mirrors in dressing areas, a key place where shoppers decide whether to buy or not. Neiman Marcus has installed these outside fitting rooms at 20 stores to offer shoppers a 360-degree view of what an outfit looks like. Shoppers can make side-by-side comparisons without having to try them all on. They also can share video with friends for feedback. Rent the Runway, an online retailer that lets people rent high-end clothing, teamed up with Samsung to have digital displays highlight its online inventory for shoppers at a new location in New York. A mirror in the store is planned to recommend items that go with what the customer is wearing.

Virtual and augmented reality

Home improvement retailers have been embracing virtual reality and augmented reality to help shoppers

figure out ways to decorate homes or apartments. With such technologies, shoppers wear a headset to picture how something might look in 3-D, in some cases overlaid on top of their real kitchen or living room. Home Depot’s augmented reality app lets customers upload a picture of the room on their phone and thumb through thousands of paint and stain colors until they arrive at one that’s right. These tools should become more pervasive.

Self-checkout

Stores have been pushing self-service kiosks for years to lower labor costs and speed up checkout lines. It hasn’t always been smooth, though. Two years ago, Wal-Mart offered a Scan & Go app for shoppers to scan items as they grabbed them from the shelves. At the checkout counter, the customer merely had to scan a code to complete the transaction. But WalMart scrapped the project after customers found the app difficult to use. Despite Wal-Mart’s hiccups, plenty of stores believe they can avoid the pitfalls. Andy Wong, partner at Accenture’s Kurt Salmon Digital, said Wal-Mart had a tougher time because its customers are diverse and less techy overall. By contrast, Amazon is trying out its store in Seattle, a tech center, and has a customer base already comfortable with digital shopping.

Common computer problems solved What should you do if your computer is crashing, freezing or displaying errors? Everyone knows to reboot, but there are a variety of other problem-solvers that can get you out of a jam. That said, rebooting remains the best way to solve most computer problems. Shutting your computer down and turning it back on is more effective than simply restarting it. A shutdown turns off the power, which does a better job of clearing memory. Use the shutdown command if possible rather than hitting the power button. Computers don’t like being turned off unexpectedly. In addition to rebooting, try scanning for viruses and malware, which can cause slowdowns and crashes. Keeping your computer free of viruses helps keep it free from problems. Ask yourself if anything has changed since the last time the computer worked properly. Perhaps there’s a new program or change in configu-

TECH Triona Guidry ration. Adding new hardware to your system also can cause unexpected incompatibilities. Run your system and software updates to make sure everything is current. This will squash most software-related bugs. If you’re using newer software on an older computer, you may experience some incompatibilities. Those who are on older operating systems such as Windows XP or Vista need to upgrade, as those systems are no longer supported by their manufacturers and may not have current antivirus or bug fixes available. If you continue to experience problems, you can search online to see if other people are having similar issues. Most software and hardware manufacturers have support pages that include

Because they give you useful information, unlike random crashes that provide no helpful context. You can search for the error code or exact text of the error message. This often will lead you to user forums that may provide solutions. You also can check your computer’s logs for error messages. However, be wary if anyone offers to “remote” into your computer to fix problems. This is a hallmark of fake tech support scams. Fake tech support scammers pretend to act on behalf of legitimate companies such as Microsoft and Apple. They may contact you by phone, email or direct message, trying to lure you into granting access to your computer. Always contact your manufacturer’s tech support directly for assistance, and think twice before

allowing anyone to connect remotely to your computer. If you’ve been using computers for a long time, you should know that some of the old-school tricks we used to use aren’t effective on newer computer systems. Defragging, for example, isn’t really necessary in this age of gigantic hard drives and solid-state storage. Verify your troubleshooting techniques to make sure they’re still valid. Prevention is the best way to avoid most computer problems. Keep your computer updated, and maintain a current, offline backup at all times. Ransomware can hold your data hostage, infecting not only your computer but your network and cloud storage. You can use offline backups as a supplement to your regular backup method.

LAS VEGAS – Tomorrow’s retail stores want to take a page from their online rivals by embracing advanced technology – everything from helpful robots to interactive mirrors to shelves embedded with sensors. The goal: Use these real-world store features to lure shoppers back from the internet, and maybe even nudge them to spend more in the process. Amazon’s new experimental grocery store in Seattle, opening in early 2017, will let shoppers buy goods without needing to stop at a checkout line. Sensors track items as shoppers put them into baskets or return them to the shelf. The shopper’s Amazon account gets automatically charged. “Amazon, for good or bad, has been setting the path,” said Robert Hetu, research director at Gartner Research. “Each retailer is going to have to respond in some way. But it’s not onesize-fits-all.” Kroger, Neiman Marcus and Lowe’s are among the companies already experimenting with futuristic retail stores. Robots, for instance, could help guide shoppers to the right aisle, while augmented reality apps could help you see how a particular shade of paint will look in the living room – or how you might look in a pair of jeans. Many of these technologies were unveiled or

demonstrated at the CES gadget show in Las Vegas. Here are five technologies coming to a store near you.

26 Osteoporosis risk increases after menopause Dear Doctors: I just turned 65, and even though I’m strong and healthy, my friends say I should be concerned about osteoporosis. What is it, and how do I know if I have it? Dear Reader: Osteoporosis, which literally means “porous bones,” is a progressive disease in which bone mass is lost. As a result, bones become thinner, more fragile and are at higher risk of fracture. People with osteoporosis most often break a bone in the hip, forearm or spine. Although osteoporosis can occur in men and women of any age, post-menopausal women have the highest risk. This is due to the steep drop in the production of estrogen, a hormone produced by the ovaries, which protects against bone loss. Risk of osteoporosis increases along with a person’s age. A family history of the disease is an indicator of risk, as are alcoholism, cigarette smoking, anorexia and steroid therapy. Race also plays a role, with Caucasian and Asian women more likely to develop osteoporosis than other ethnicities. To understand osteoporosis, let’s first talk about bones: Your skeleton, which supports and protects your body, is made up of living tissue. It’s also a storehouse of essential minerals that are held within your bones. Throughout your life, your bones go through a metabolic process called remodeling, in which old bone tissue is removed from the skeleton and new bone tissue is formed. As we age, the formation of new bone tissue slows. In people with osteoporosis, the formation of new bone can’t keep pace with the removal of old bone, which results in a net decrease in bone density. In addition to an increased risk of fracture, people with osteoporosis experience a loss of height, stooped posture and decreased mobility. So how can you know if you have osteoporosis?

SUDOKU

ASK THE DOCTORS Elizabeth Ko and Eve Glazier Since in its early stages osteoporosis typically does not have symptoms, a bone density test is needed for an accurate diagnosis. This is a painless scan in which low-level X-rays are used to reveal the proportion of minerals in your bones. During the test you lie on a padded table as the technician scans several areas, usually your hip, spinal column and wrist. Treatment for osteoporosis ranges from lifestyle changes, such as adding an exercise plan and switching to a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D, to a range of medications that you would discuss with your doctor. No matter your age, there are things you can do to keep your bones strong. Calcium is one of the building blocks of new bone, and to successfully absorb that calcium, your body needs vitamin D. Dairy foods, certain nuts and green leafy vegetables contain lots of calcium. Eggs, fatty fish and fortified milk contain vitamin D. Talk to your doctor about whether you need supplements of calcium and/or vitamin D. Staying physically active strengthens both muscle and bone. Try weight-bearing exercises three to four times a week, and don’t forget about balance and agility exercises, which can help prevent a fall. Your bones hold you up, allow you to move and contain the marrow that produces about 230 billion red blood cells a day – don’t take your bones for granted. • Send your questions to askthedoctors@ mednet.ucla.edu or write Ask the Doctors, c/o Media Relations, UCLA Health, 924 Westwood Blvd., Suite 350, Los Angeles, CA 90095.

the road, and unless something is done to stop him, he may kill somebody. I say this not only because it is common sense, but also because the daughter-in-law of a friend of mine was the victim in a terrible accident caused by a man who was blind drunk. She was the only survivor; two others died. Her injuries are extensive and traumatic, and it might take years for her to fully recover. So, please, put aside your personal issues. For the safety of the community, turn him in. If his car was damaged, you would not be the only person who is aware of it. Dear Abby: “Kirk” and I have been together for 10 years, married for five. We’re nearing our 30s, and the idea of a child has come up. While I have never had any desire for children, I’m becoming more open to the idea. My parents divorced when I was young, so I have a fear of being a single mom. Kirk grew up never knowing his father, so he always has wanted to take on that role. Kirk is a wonderful, loving husband, but when he’s tired, he doesn’t always handle things well. We have two dogs, and when they bother Kirk during the night or when he wants to be left alone, he gets frustrated. I’m wondering if this is an example of how he would be if we were to have a baby. I have discussed my concerns with him. He says it would be different because it would involve a child, not a pet. Is it possible Kirk will be different with our child, or is this how he’ll react when he’s disturbed in the middle of the night? – Looking Toward The Future Dear Looking: That depends upon how Kirk reacts when he becomes “frustrated.” Most adults are mature and rational enough to differentiate between an animal’s need for attention and a small child’s, and react appropriately. However, since you are approaching this rationally in advance of becoming pregnant, it might quiet your fears if you and Kirk were to join some parenting classes together.

A W S J A H A I R R T I L M P L E R Y T E P R M P E O Y D T M T E O A S T

few months ago, I left my husband after a long marriage, mostly due to his drinking. He often insisted on getting behind the wheel while drunk, although I repeatedly begged him not to do it. Since our split, he has been drinking much later at his favorite bar. Where he used to come home about 8, he now stays until 10 or 11. He recently had an accident on his way home from the bar, but managed to get away before the police arrived. Part of me wants to contact the police and report it because I would feel horrible if he hurt someone and I had done nothing to stop it. My concern is he’ll find out I turned him in.

Joey Adams, a comedian, said, “It’s very easy to be witty tomorrow, after you get a chance to do some research and rehearse your ad libs.” It’s very easy to make your contract tomorrow, after you get a chance to do some research and find out where the opponents’ cards lie. This deal is an example. Six spades is easy to make after a quick glance at the full layout. But what should one do without X-ray vision? In the auction, East psyched three spades over North’s takeout double. However, South, Yvonne Wiseman from England, doubled twice for penalty, then bid four spades. North happily jumped to six spades. We have seen that we can take a diamond finesse at trick two, draw trumps ending in hand, lead a second diamond and claim when the king appears. We lose only one heart. That is a reasonable line of play, but if the diamond finesse loses, a club return from East would strand us in the dummy. Better is to take the heart finesse at trick two. If it wins, ruff the club three, take the spade ace-queen and heart ace, ruff a heart, draw the last trump and try diamonds for an overtrick. Here, the heart finesse loses and, say, a club is returned. South ruffs in the dummy, cashes the top trumps, plays a heart to the useful 10, draws the missing trump and takes the diamond finesse. Wiseman felt sure that East had the heart king, so she ruffed the club three at trick two, cashed the spade ace-queen and led a low heart from the board. East had no answer.

One more memory Local family discovers photograph of grandfather, a former MLB pitcher, with Frank Sinatra 72 years later By SEAN HAMMOND

What to watch NHL: Detroit at Blackhawks, 7:30 p.m., WGN West Dundee native Ryan Hartman, who recorded his first career hat trick in memorable fashion Sunday, and the Hawks look to sweep their four-game homestand with a win against the Red Wings, who are in last place in the Atlantic Division.

NU basketball player found dead EVANSTON – Northwestern women’s basketball player Jordan Hankins has been found dead in her room at the university. The university said in a statement that the 19-year-old Hankins’ body was found Monday afternoon. The statement from spokesman Carsten Parmenter said there is no indication of foul play or “any danger or threat to other members of the Northwestern community.” The nature and cause of Hankins’ death will be determined by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.

David Badgley’s first impression upon seeing the photo was how young his grandpa appeared. One of David’s 11 siblings had asked what number their grandfather, John “Deacon” Donahue, wore when he pitched for the Philadelphia Phillies from 1943 to 1944. Searching the internet for an image of their grandfather in uniform, David came across one from 1944. Their grandfather was 23 years old, still unmarried and not yet a father to his seven children. The striking thing about the imagine was that the Badgleys believed John “Deacon” they had seen every Donahue available photo of their grandpa from his playing days – there weren’t that many, after all. They never had seen this one. The photo is taken at a wartime fundraising exhibition between the Phillies and the Brooklyn Dodgers. In the photo, Donahue stands at the far right wearing a Phillies jacket, mitt on his left hand, glasses atop his nose. He stands next to Phillies manager Freddie Fitzsimmons, Dodgers outfielder Dixie Walker and Dodgers coach Charley Dresser. In the middle, a man sings into a microphone. David blew up the photo and zoomed in on Donahue. It definitely was him. He showed the image to one of his sisters, he can’t remember which one. With six boys and six girls – spanning 161/2 years in age difference – in the Badgley family, it can be hard to keep track. Her response? Yep, that’s grandpa. And that guy there, singing in the middle, that’s Frank Sinatra. • • • To understand the Badgley family’s surprise, one has to understand their relationship with Donahue. The 12 Badgleys spent much of their childhoods living a few blocks away from their grandparents’ house in Carpentersville. It was a short walk and a shorter bike ride. They spent hours listening to Donahue’s stories. They played wiffle ball in the backyard or the driveway and Donahue would pull up a chair and watch. Dan Badgley, 38, a teacher and former baseball coach at Crystal Lake Central, said Donahue rarely missed a Little League game.

He is joined in harmony by Dodgers coach Charley Dresser (left), Dodgers outfielder Dixie Walker (second from right) and Phillies manager Freddie Fitzsimmons. At the far right is John “Deacon” Donahue, who grew up in Chicago and pitched for the Phillies from 1943 to 1944. “You’re born into my family, you play baseball,” Dan said. “After every game I’d have to explain to him why I did this or why I did that. We were as close as you can get to grandparents. They were second parents to us.” “We spent a lot of time over there,” said David, now 31 and living in McHenry. “Probably more time than he did in our own house.” Donahue’s stint with the Phillies was brief, but he loved talking about it. Listed as a 6-foot, 180-pound righty according to baseball-reference.com, Donahue pitched a grand total of 131/3 innings in the big leagues. He had one plate appearance, a strikeout against pitcher Hal Gregg of the Dodgers on May 6, 1944, at Ebbets Field. Zach remembers his grandfather’s favorite story being the time he got Car-

dinals Hall of Famer Stan Musial to pop out, possibly in a spring training game. “He had a scrapbook with a lot of pictures and newspaper clippings that we’d always pull out and flip through,” David said. “He had a lot of stories from when he played high school until when he played for the Phillies.” Donahue grew up in Chicago and signed with the Phillies shortly after high school. He earned the nickname “Deacon” because he was a religious man. According to Dan Badgley, when Donahue faced a good hitter, he would say, “God help me,” as he pumped his arms over his head. He made his Major League debut in September 1943.

ALABAMA

Better than the original VIEWS Paul Newberry

TAMPA, Fla. – Thank you, Clemson. College football needed this. Thank you, Alabama. A fallen champion, but thoroughly magnificent. In a sequel that proved to be even more of a blockbuster than the original, Deshaun Watson and the Tigers went to the 59th minute and 59th second of the national championship game to finally topple one of the greatest dynasties in the history of sports Monday night. When Watson rolled out to his right and zipped a 2-yard touchdown pass to Hunter Renfrow with a single second left on the clock, the Crimson Tide’s bid for a fifth national title in eight years was snuffed out by a 35-31 defeat. That was a welcome development for everyone outside of Tuscaloosa. The sport desperately needed someone to stare down Nick Saban’s juggernaut. It’s always good to spread things around a bit. Watson was the one who did the staring, and all it took was another superhuman effort. The NFL-bound quarterback, who already graduated from college in three years, calmly guided the Tigers to three fourth-quarter touchdowns against the biggest, baddest defense in the land. It was stunning to watch. Just imagine what it was like to live it. “I want to be legendary,” said Watson, who was thinking all along about Vince Young’s performance in that off-the-charts Rose Bowl 11 years ago. Mission accomplished.

Watson, Clemson dethrone top-ranked Tide By RALPH D. RUSSO The Associated Press

TAMPA, Fla. – College football’s first national championship rematch was even better than the original, with an incredible twist at the end. Deshaun Watson and Clemson dethroned the champs and became the first team to beat Nick Saban’s Alabama dynasty in a national title game, taking down the top-ranked Crimson Tide, 35-31, Monday night in the College Football Playoff. Watson found Hunter Renfrow for a 2-yard touchdown pass with a second remaining to give the Tigers their first national championship since 1981. A year after Alabama won its fourth title under Saban with a 45-40 classic in Arizona, Clemson closed the deal and denied the Tide an unprecedented fifth championship in eight seasons. The lead changed hands three times in the fourth quarter, but Watson got

the ball last. Likely playing in his final college game, the third-year quarterback threw for 420 yards and three touchdowns. In two games against Alabama and the most ferocious defense in college football, Watson has thrown for 825 yards and accounted for eight touchdowns. Coach Dabo Swinney, the native Alabaman and former Crimson Tide walk-on receiver, has built an elite program at Clemson that was missing only one thing. Now the Tigers can check that box, too. “Eight years ago we set out to put Clemson back on top,” said Swinney, who can turn postgame interviews into a rousing sermon. “We came up a little short last year, but today on top of the mountain, the Clemson flag is flying.” After three quarters of vicious hits and tight defense, Tigers-Tide II ended up looking a lot like the first meeting when the teams combined for 40 points in the fourth quarter.

Clemson drew closer when Watson found Mike Williams for a 4-yard touchdown a minute into the fourth quarter to make it 24-21. The Tigers took a 28-24 lead with 4:38 left in the fourth quarter when Wayne Gallman surged in from a yard out. The Tide’s offense, which had gone dormant for most of the second half, came to life with the help of a sweet call from newly promoted offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian. Receiver ArDarius Stewart took a backward pass from Jalen Hurts and fired a strike to O.J. Howard for 24 yards. On the next play, Hurts broke free from a collapsing pocket and weaved his way through defenders for a 30yard touchdown run to make it 31-28 with 2:07 left. More than enough time for Watson. “I was calm,” Watson said. He said he thought about Vince Young’s

Continued from page 2 Donahue died in 2008 at age 87. After his baseball career, he worked for more than 40 years as a projectionist at the Des Plaines Theatre. “I guess that’s cool,” joked grandson Zach Badgley, 26, an assistant baseball coach at McHenry. “Play Major League Baseball, leave, get married and watch movies the rest of your life.” • • • The Red Cross War Fund baseball game was played April 13, 1944, at Ebbets Field, days before Opening Day. Dan Badgley vaguely remembers Donahue talking about seeing Sinatra once. “I remember him mentioning one time he saw Sinatra,” Dan said. “I don’t remember him every saying he talked to him. He loved Bing Crosby. I remember him talking about how Sinatra used to copy Bing Crosby.” Donahue’s grandkids remember him as someone who loved music. He surely would have mentioned having a front-row seat to one of the greatest entertainers of the era. Or maybe he never mentioned it simply because he didn’t much care for Sinatra. “He was more of a Bing Crosby guy,” David Badgley said. “I never heard him say he liked Sinatra. Actually, I remember him saying that he didn’t really like any of Frank Sinatra’s music. Maybe that’s why the story never came up.” Sinatra himself still was in his 20s in 1944 and at the height of his superstardom. Donahue did not last much longer in the majors. He made his eighth and final appearance on May 26 of that season. The Badgleys discovered the photo with Sinatra last month around Christmastime. Their grandmother, Mary Donahue, died about a month earlier on Thanksgiving Day at 90 years old. They likely never will know exactly why their grandfather never told them about Sinatra. “He told us every little thing you could imagine, from the time he proposed to my grandma at the top of a

That’s what made us all so speechless about it.” Maybe the Badgleys don’t need the full story. They have the photo – another family heirloom to add to Donahue’s old scrapbook – and maybe the photo says enough. “If you look at the picture,” Zach said, “it looks like he’s enjoying every minute of it.”

Butler was fighting illness all day, missing the shootaround and was a question mark to even play. He gave it a go, but was nowhere near Butler level, as coach Fred Hoiberg finally pulled him from the game in the third quarter and they made the decision to send him home from the United

Center. Until that point, Butler was 0 for 6 from the field with only one point. He did manage seven assists, playing facilitator for his teammates, but considering he came into the showdown with Westbrook averaging 38 points a game over his past three contests, well, the illness obviously won. “ A p p r e c i a t e h i m c o ming out and giving it a shot,”

The guard finished with 21 points, 14 assists and nine rebounds, lifting the Thunder to a 23-16 record, as well as staying in pursuit of averaging a triple-double for

I walked up to my offensive line, my receivers, and I said, ‘Let’s be great.’ ” That they were. So was Alabama. “It was an unbelievable, unprecedented run,” Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said of his alma mater, where he won a national title as a player in 1992. “I’ve never seen anything like it. But they lost the wrong game.” Really, there were no losers. For that, we say to both teams: Thank you.

He told his team: “Let’s go be great.” Watson hooked up with Williams and Jordan Leggett, who made great catches for big gains to get to first-and-goal with 14 seconds left. A pass interference on Alabama made it first-and-goal at the 2 with six seconds left. Time for one more play to avoid a game-tying kick and potential overtime. Renfrow slipped away from the defense at the goal line and was alone for an easy toss. It was the walkon receiver’s second TD catch of the night, adding to the two he had last season against Alabama. When it ended, Clemson’s 315-pound defensive lineman Christian Wilkins did a cartwheel and Ben Boulware, one of the toughest linebackers in the country, was in tears.

CHICAGO – The Bulls aren’t hiding from their record. After Monday night’s 10994 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, veteran Dwyane Wade won’t let them hide from it. “Like I’ve said, we are what our record says we are,” Wade said. “I know everyone would want to believe that they’re somebody that they ain’t. We’re [.500] for a reason. We go out and play those games. So we are what our record says we are. “Who knows what we’re going to end up at the end of the season. If we’re going to be a .500 team, if we’re going to be below it or above. But right now we are what we are.” What they are after the Thunder blowout is 19-19, as their three-game winning streak came to a screeching halt. More disappointing than the loss, however, was the fact that the highly anticipated showdown between MVP can-

the season. Hoiberg was asked if there was a player he could compare Westbrook to, and said he’s one of a kind. “In a long time at least,” Hoiberg said. “In this day and age, to average a triple-double, that says all you need to know about Westbrook. He gets it done in so many ways. “You have to try to execute the game plan and get him to shoot the shots you want and try to slow him down.” Michael Carter-Williams tried, and actually held him to four points in the first quarter, but Oklahoma City blew the game open in the second, outscoring the Bulls, 35-26, as Westbrook scored nine points and handed out three assists in his seven-plus minutes of work in that second quarter. Wade did his best to try to carry the Bulls’ offense with Butler down, as the veteran went 7 for 16 from the field for 22 points. He just didn’t have enough help. That will need to change Tuesday, as the Bulls will be without Butler and Wade (scheduled rest) against the Wizards. “We need other guys to step up,” Wade said. “Now it’s about seeing how ready we can get in this quick turnaround.”

• BEARS OFFSEASON Continued from page 8

Assuming a $168 million salary cap, the Bears will have about $62.5 million to spend this offseason, per Spotrac. com. The Bears rank ninth in cap space, according to the site, while the Browns lead the league with about $107.9 million in room.

WHAT THEY NEED

FEELING A DRAFT

(Ranking the Bears’ needs) Quarterback: The Bears must finally find a young QB, and have the draft-pick ammo to do it. Cornerback: Despite Pace saying he believes in Kyle Fuller, the cornerback’s return seems unlikely after his coordinator called him out for letting a knee scope sideline him all season. Safety: Quoting Pace: “We need to add more ball skills to our secondary. That’s on me, and we’ll do that.”

CAP SPACE

$62.5M

Here’s who the (ridiculously early) mock drafts predict the Bears taking with the No. 3 pick: SI.com: North Carolina QB Mitch Trubisky theMMQB.com: Alabama DL Jonathan Allen ESPN.com’s Todd McShay: Michigan S/OLB Jabrill Peppers CBSSports.com’s Rob Rang: Alabama DL Jonathan Allen WashingtonPost.com: Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer

North Carolina QB Mitch Tribusky

TWO BEARS VETS THAT COULD GO

QB Jay Cutler: The Bears could release Cutler at no cost to them, except for a $2 million cap hit. There’s no rush to make any moves with him, however; his contract has no payment deadlines and he’s still recovering – albeit quickly, according to Pace – from labrum surgery on his right shoulder. OLB Lamarr Houston: A torn ACL limited the former DE to two games this season, two years after a similar injury cost him eight. In between, he led the 2015 Bears with eight sacks.

JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENTS

The Bears hope that coaching the Senior Bowl’s North team gives them an insight into QB, the way theCowboys staff did when they coached against Dak Prescott in last year’s game. Perhaps the top four best QBs, however, are underclassmen.

NFL begins review of concussion Jaguars hire Marrone, bring back sonville relevant in the AFC South. protocol on Miami QB Moore Coughlin, extend GM Caldwell Packers’ Nelson to sit out practice MIAMI – The NFL has begun a review Jacksonville’s coaching search landed

someone from its past and present. The Jaguars can only hope the oldschool combination leads to better results in the future. Owner Shad Khan hired Doug Marrone as head coach Monday and brought back Tom Coughlin to oversee football operations. Marrone replaces Gus Bradley, who was fired in late November after going 14-48 in three-plus seasons. The Jaguars (3-13) also gave general manager Dave Caldwell a two-year contract extension. So Marrone, Coughlin and Caldwell are now signed through 2019, giving the new regime a three-year window to, at the very least, make Jack-

GREEN BAY, Wis. – Receivers for the Green Bay Packers are trained to handle any position so that anyone easily can slide into a new slot because of an injury, or if coach Mike McCarthy likes a matchup. That versatility will come in handy for the Packers if Jordy Nelson misses the divisional-round playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys this weekend because of a rib injury. Nelson will sit out practice at midweek to focus on rehab for the injury, although McCarthy said his top receiver might be cleared to play in Dallas if he takes part in the Packers’ final practice Saturday.

QB Matt Barkley: The former USC star seemed to be on his way out of football before getting his six starts this season because of injuries to Jay Cutler and Brian Hoyer. He was brutal at the end – with a 61.9 passer rating and seven interceptions over his final two games – but showed enough flashes to earn a second-string job next year, somewhere. DE Cornelius Washington: Washington was part of a steady defensive line rotation this season, playing 364 snaps, a notably leap in durability. He hurt himself on his first defensive play in 2015 and had only 88 defensive plays to his name entering this season.

of the concussion protocol conducted on Miami Dolphins quarterback Matt Moore when he left his team’s playoff game at Pittsburgh after being shaken up. Moore was hit in the chin as he threw a pass, and the play drew a roughing-the-passer penalty on Pittsburgh’s Bud Dupree. Dolphins medical staff attended to Moore on the field, and he was evaluated on the sideline by an independent neurological consultant and team physician before returning to the game. Moore missed only one play in Miami’s 30-12 loss Sunday. Moore said he wasn’t seriously hurt.

Reese: Giants investigating hole in wall outside locker room

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – New York Giants GM Jerry Reese has told star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. that he needs to look at some of his antics on and off the field and be more responsible. Beckham has been under the microscope after taking a one-day trip to Miami with some fellow receivers after the regular-season finale with a wild-card playoff game at Green Bay less than a week ago. Beckham dropped a career-high three passes in the Giants’ loss to the Packers on Sunday, and more controversy followed: It was alleged that he punched a hole in a wall outside the Giants’ locker room at Lambeau Field. – Wire reports

• Tuesday, January 10, 2017

Redskins QB Kirk Cousins: Under the franchise tag, Cousins broke his own franchise passing yards record this season but threw a Week 17 interception with the playoffs on the line. Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell: In his rap album earlier this year, Bell said that “If they don’t sign me big, I know someone will.” Chiefs S Eric Berry: The cancer survivor had four picks and two defensive scores this season. Chargers OLB Melvin Ingram: Has 18 ½ sacks over the past two seasons Cardinals OLB Chandler Jones: He posted 11 sacks after the Patriots traded him to Arizona, and seems primed for a franchise tag. Panthers DT Kawann Short: The East Chicago, Indiana, native hasn’t missed a game as a pro. Texans CB A.J. Bouye: He’s been one of the season’s great surprises, going from a parttime starter to the best free-agent cornerback available. Browns OLB Jamie Collins: The Browns have said they want to give Collins, who they got from the Patriots in a midseason trade, a long-term deal.

Chiefs NT Dontari Poe: The 346-pound runstuffer threw the best fat-guy touchdown pass ever on Christmas Day.

TWO BEARS THAT EARNED A RAISE

SPORTS | Northwest Herald / NWHerald.com

TOP 10 FREE AGENTS

Offensive line: Is Charles Leno the answer at left tackle? Would the Bears dare move Kyle Long back outside? They didn’t rule it out. Outside linebacker: Leonard Floyd showed flashes of stardom. But Willie Young had 1 ½ sack in his final 10 games and Pernell McPhee might be a parttime player. Tight end: The Bears need a physical blocker to play alongside Zach Miller, whose injury history screams out for depth. Defensive line: Akiem Hicks was a revelation, and would be even better alongside a healthy Eddie Goldman. Rookie Jonathan Bullard disappointed. Receiver: This rockets up the list if the Bears decide to let Alshon Jeffery walk. Inside linebackers: Danny Trevathan might start next year on the physically unable to perform list, but Nick Kwiatkoski should be fine in his place. Running back: The Bears could upgrade from Ka’Deem Carey as a third-stringer. Kickers: Both Connor Barth and Pat O’Donnell were fine.


The Bears who can sign elsewhere via free agency starting in March – listed alphabetically, with their 2016 cap number, per Spotrac.com: OLB Sam Acho ($840,000): Good special teamer, better locker room presence T Mike Adams ($760,000): Adams made a spotstart and was later placed on IR with a back problem – scary, given that he needed back surgery in 2015. QB Matt Barkley ($675,000): Amazingly, he led Bears quarterbacks in starts. K Connor Barth ($850,000): Robbie Gould’s replacement started 4 for 7 but finished 14 for 16. CB Johnthan Banks ($1.182M): The waiver claim started the final Alshon Jeffery two games but was carted to the locker room with an ankle injury against the Vikings. T Nick Becton ($675,000): Suffered an elbow injury in camp CB Brandon Boykin ($760,000): Hurt his pectoral muscle in camp. QB Brian Hoyer ($2M): His completion percentage of 67 is a franchise record. WR Alshon Jeffery ($14.599M franchise tag): His best game of this season – a 105-yard performance in the opener – was lower than his top four of 2015. G Eric Kush ($1.26M): The “Hard Knocks” star was solid in four starts at guard. G Ted Larsen ($1.65M): Made eight starts, but only after being passed over twice in the preseason for a starting gig T Matt McCants ($1.67M): Played two offensive snaps TE Logan Paulsen ($760,000): Only one offensive player committed more penalties than Paulsen’s six. S Chris Prosinski ($840,000): Trailed only Sherrick McManis in special teams snaps, totaling 352 WR Deonte Thompson ($840,000): Led NFL in kick return attempts, finished sixth among qualifiers with a 23-yard average, and famously dropped a game-winning touchdown DE Cornelius Washington ($565,947): After bulking up a year ago – he’s gained more than 20 pounds as a pro – Washington settled in nicely at defensive end. NT C.J. Wilson ($760,000): Sixty-six of his 128 snaps came in the last two games. WR Marquess Wilson ($551,787): In December, he broke his left foot for the third time in one year and two weeks.

KEY DATES

Players the Bears can keep at the veteran minimum. They’re not allowed to sign elsewhere: (with 2016 average annual value) WR Josh Bellamy ($760,000): The team’s best special teamer, by far, Bellamy struggled with drops but matched last year’s total of 19 catches.

Bears general manager Ryan Pace

hange has been constant under the Bears’ new regime – only 19 players remain from its arrival – but this offseason has a different feel. The Bears have the third overall draft pick in April and, in free agency, money to spend. “That’s a lot of youth on the team and a lot of guys getting better, but this offseason’s huge, man,” general manager Ryan Pace said. “And I think there’s a big responsibility with that much cap space, this high in the draft. It’s a significant offseason for us. And we’ve got to get going in that direction.” The goal, Pace said, is to “look for long-term solutions that lead to long-term success.” As they prepare to try, here’s a primer about who the Bears could lose, what they need and who might be available:
