Good morning, McHenry County ...

Village President Bob Nunamaker: ‘Life is good in Fox River Grove’ Bob Nunamaker is excited about what’s going on in Fox River Grove, and for good reason. The Fox River town of about 4,700 residents nestled between Cary and the McHenry/Lake County border has several projects ongoing that should bring jobs and additional revenue to the village. The village’s president since 2009, Nunamaker gave his State of the Community address Thursday at a Business Roundtable lunch sponsored by the Cary Grove Chamber of Commerce, and I was happy to be in attendance. First, Nunamaker noted, opened its technology center in the village late last year. It already has hired about 40 people with a goal to hire up to 100. is a technology company that provides consulting and other services to the freight industry, such as load planning, transportation management, telematics, route optimization and logistics solutions. “Fox River Grove is one of their big development” hubs, Nunamaker said. The tech company chose the village because of its proximity to Chicago and its suburbs, as well as the train stations in Fox River Grove and Barrington. Avanté Prime Banquet plans to open a 15,000-square-foot banquet facility at the site of the former Five O’Clock Steakhouse property on Route 14, Nunamaker said. It will be the only banquet facility in Fox River Grove and one of only a few in the area. The facility is being developed by George Kalkounos, who owns Chicago Prime Steakhouse in Schaumburg, according to previous

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK Dan McCaleb Northwest Herald reporting. “They hope to be open early next year,” Nunamaker said. Also in the works is a multiunit housing development called Fox Barrington Glen off Route 22 near County Line Road. The planned 24 highend duplexes will come with elevator shafts, and buyers will have the option of adding an elevator if they choose, Nunamaker said. While the deal is not final, the village also is working with a developer on a downtown redevelopment project that would include commuter apartments. “Yes, I think it’s going to happen,” Nunamaker said, “but it’s not done yet.” The village does have its share of challenges, Nunamaker said, but they’re mostly the result of unfunded state mandates such as employee pensions that go up 3 percent every year and renovations to the sewage treatment plant costing about $1.6 million. But the village did not increase its property tax levy this fiscal year and has about six months in expenses in reserve. “Life is good here in Fox River Grove,” he said.

Camille Caffarelli, founder of Horizons for the Blind, is seen Thursday in her Crystal Lake office. Horizons for the Blind is dedicated to improving self-reliance by increasing accessibility for blind and visually impaired individuals. The company is celebrating 40 years in business this year.

Horizons for the Blind has provided services for clients for 40 years By HANNAH PROKOP CRYSTAL LAKE – At Horizons for the Blind in Crystal Lake, Executive Director Camille Caffarelli wants to make sure everyone is on a level playing field. To her, that means those who are visually impaired should be able to enjoy visiting a museum, or be able to read their private bills without having to ask for help from others. Caffarelli, who was born blind,

started the nonprofit in 1977 out of her Chicago home with the help of two volunteers. The group worked with the Chicago Botanic Garden and other museums to create displays the visually impaired could enjoy. Forty years later, the Horizons for the Blind has moved from Chicago to Carpentersville to Crystal Lake and expanded its work.  “Now we’re one of the leading producers of braille and large print in the country,” Caffarelli said.  Horizons for the Blind works with

companies including Comcast, AT&T, Time Warner Cable and more to provide people across the country with large-print or braille bills for anything from gas and electrical services to bank statements. The organization still works with museums to provide tactile displays and distributes other products such as a scanner that can identify food and drink products and their ingredients.  Another part of Horizon’s mission is to provide meaningful jobs to those with visual impairments, Caffarelli

said. Horizons for the Blind employs about 50 people, half of whom have a visual impairment. “I like to see people working who otherwise wouldn’t get a chance,” Caffarelli said.  Sitting at his desk, Horizons for the Blind supervisor of IT Gavin Walkington scanned a can of Coke. A speech synthesizer then read out the name of the product. His keyboard, and others in the

Some new details emerge in apparent murder-suicide Visitation, funeral arrangements set for next week in Huntley By HANNAH PROKOP LAKE IN THE HILLS – Lake in the Hills police continue to investigate an apparent murder-suicide that left a mother and her two children dead. Autopsy results from the McHenry County Coroner’s Office revealed the two children, 11-year-old Ezequiel Garcia and 8-year-old Ariana Garcia, were strangled to death and their mother, Carla M. Lopez-Mejia, 27, died from asphyxia from hanging. Lake in the Hills police and Huntley Fire Department personnel were called about 2:55 p.m. Tuesday to a home in the 2300 block of Daybreak Drive, Lake in the Hills, police said. Lopez-Mejia was found on the first floor, Lake in the Hills Police Public Information Officer Amanda Schmitt said, and the children were found on the sec-

ond floor. The 911 call that brought emergency personnel to the home came from outside the home, Schmitt said. She would not comment further on who made the call or where it came from. The children’s father, Luis Garcia, declined to comment. “We have been in contact to let him know about the fact that there’s been deaths in his family,” Carla M. Lopez-Mejia Schmitt said Thursday. As to the timeline of events or further background on Lopez-Mejia, Schmitt said she could not provide more details as the investigation is open. More updates will likely be available at the start of next week, Schmitt said. Ezequiel was a sixth-grade student at Marlowe Middle School and Ariana attended Martin Elementary School as a

third-grade student. According to an obituary, Lopez-Mejia married Garcia on Aug. 7, 2009, in Woodstock and had worked in customer service for Chase Banks. A GoFundMe page created by Adam Garcia has been set up for the family with a goal of raising $30,000 to help cover funeral expenses. Ezequiel, who went by “Izzy,” and Ariana were “full of energy and loved playing outside,” a message on the page reads. As of Thursday evening, the page had raised more than $13,000. A visitation for Ezequiel, Ariana and Lopez-Mejia is scheduled from 3 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at DeFiore-Jorgensen Funeral & Cremation Service, 10763 Dundee Road, Huntley. A funeral Mass will be at 2 p.m. Wednesday at St. Mary Catholic Church, 10307 Dundee Road, Huntley. The burial will be in St. Mary Cemetery on a later date.

McHenry County Board set to reconstitute HR Committee By KEVIN P. CRAVER WOODSTOCK – McHenry County Board member Paula Yensen is getting another shot at chairing a committee after having one taken from her by a last-minute vote. One of the first issues that could appear on the new Human Resources Committee’s agenda might be questions about two new hires made by new County Board Chairman Jack Franks – which he said is absolutely no issue at all. County Board members on Tuesday are scheduled to vote on reconstituting the committee. An ad-hoc rules committee convened by Franks, D-Marengo, shortly after his December swearing-in proposed to consolidate it into the Finance and Audit Committee, but the full board spared it, citing its importance. The Committee on Committees, which met just before Thursday morning’s Committee of the Whole, recommended that Yensen, D-Lake in the Hills, chair human resources. Franks originally had proposed her, with the committee’s backing, to lead the Public Health and Community Services Committee, citing her 35 years in social service. However, the Republican-dominated board voted to demote her to vice chairman and give the chairmanship to Chuck Wheeler, R-McHenry, who is president and founder of a health insurance business. The vote took Yensen, the sole Democratic member of the 24-member board not counting the chairman, by surprise.

Paula Yensen Jack Franks

Donna Kurtz

One of the proposed human resources members, Donna Kurtz, took aim Thursday at two new employees in the administrative office. Franks introduced Bridget Geenen as an executive assistant, and Oliver Serafini as communications officer – essentially the same roles they had when they worked under Franks when he was a state representative. Franks told the County Board that Geenen’s roles will include constituent outreach, preparing the board agendas and other functions, and that Serafini, while working predominantly for the Division of Transportation, also would do communications work and outreach for other departments. Both, Franks said, would be available to do constituent and communication work for individual County Board members upon request. Kurtz, R-Crystal Lake, said the hires should have gone through the committee process, and told Yensen that she wants to address the issue when Human Resources meets for the first time. “Imagine my horror in hearing that that was not done. It gives the appearance, the very strong appearance, of patronage and even cronyism,” Kurtz said. Franks after the meeting defended the hirings as no different from other

countywide elected officials, who have the power to hire and fire in their own offices. His election on Nov. 8 was the first time that voters popularly elected the chairman after a successful 2014 referendum. The hires do not increase the county’s personnel count because of previous staffing changes and shifting of responsibilities, and their total salaries represent a net decrease of $50,000 in personnel costs, County Administrator Peter Austin said. “I’m proud to provide additional services to taxpayers while saving over $50,000. It says we’re doing more with less and we have two individuals with a long track record of excellence,” Franks said. Geenen’s $54,000 salary will be paid out of the county general fund, while Serafini’s $48,000 salary will be split between the general fund and the transportation division’s budget. Austin said no county employees were terminated to make room for the hires. Besides Yensen and Kurtz, the Human Resources Committee also will consist of members Tom Wilbeck, R-Barrington Hills, Don Kopsell, R-Crystal Lake, Kay Bates, R-McHenry, Michael Rein, R-Woodstock, and Mary McCann, R-Woodstock, should the County Board on Tuesday approve the assignments.

MARENGO – The city might consider joining the Harvard-Woodstock enterprise zone to attract businesses to the area as the Interstate 90 interchange project moves forward, but it would require a lengthy governmental process. The Marengo City Council heard a presentation this week on the benefits of applying to the zone, which would allow the municipality to offer tax incentives to companies and attract business to town. This would be a particular advantage over the next several years as the I-90 interchange is built at Route 23 in Marengo. “This is probably the only significant economic development program in the state of Illinois that has an impact on the kinds of things that we want to do,� Marengo City Administrator Gary Boden said. “If we wanted to do this, there would have to be a lot of discussion with the cities of Woodstock and Harvard first.� Illinois certified the Harvard-Wood-

stock enterprise zone in 2015, and it became effective in 2016. It operates on a budget of about $70,000 annually, with Woodstock paying in 60 percent and Harvard paying in 40 percent, enterprise zone administrator Charles Eldredge said.  “If Marengo joins in, we’d have to renegotiate the intergovernmental agreement,� he said. “Having Marengo on board would mean the whole west half of the county would be covered by a zone. If we had that much of an enlargement, we could at least ask the county to help [financially].� Marengo invited Eldredge to the meeting to find out information about its options moving forward. The option exists to begin a process to create its own enterprise zone or it could potentially join the existing Harvard-Woodstock zone. It would have to qualify at both local and state levels to join the existing zone, which would include the existence of an specific project that qualifies for the zone benefits, Eldredge said. Various boards would have to approve Marengo’s application, including the McHenry County Board, the enterprise zone board, the state of Illinois and Woodstock and Harvard city councils, he said. The process could be slow, but its worth looking into, Marengo Mayor

Medical experts differ on what killed woman in drug-induced homicide trial Defense argues asthma contributed to Algonquin 21-year-old’s death By JORDYN REILAND WOODSTOCK – Medical experts testifying before McHenry County jurors in a drug-induced homicide trial Thursday had differing opinions on what caused the death of 21-year-old Danielle Barzyk. James F. Linder, 36, of Zion is on trial this week after prosecutors said he sold 1.5 grams of heroin to Cody N. Hillier on Jan. 30, 2015. Hillier ingested the drugs with James F. his girlfriend, Barzyk, of Linder Algonquin, and she died in the early-morning hours of the next day. Hillier then agreed to work with the North Central Narcotics Task Force and bought additional heroin from the defendant in a controlled narcotics transaction at a Walmart in Zion.

LOCAL BRIEFS Church to host Financial Peace University

CRYSTAL LAKE – Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University will be presented at 7 p.m. Mondays, starting Monday and running through March 13, at St. Thomas Catholic Church, 454 Lake St. The course provides families and

been in McHenry County Jail custody. Forensic pathologist Mitra Kalelkar, who testified for the state, said after conducting Barzyk’s autopsy in February 2015 and examining the toxicology report, she determined the cause of death was a heroin overdose. She said Barzyk’s lungs were heavier than normal from a significant amount of fluid and congestion. Kalelkar said she sees this often in people who overdose on narcotics or drown. Heroin is a central nervous system depressant, meaning it inhibits the body from breathing properly, Kalelkar said. She also said she was aware of Barzyk’s history of asthma, but did not believe it was what caused her death. Edward Barbieri, a forensic toxicologist who testified for the prosecution, said his office conducted tests on a blood sample of Barzyk’s and determined there was heroin in her system. Hank Sugden, Linder’s attorney, asked Kalelkar if she examined the lung tissue microscopically and she said she had not before determining a cause of death. Sugden said Kalelkar indicated in her report that pulmonary

edema, a condition caused by excess fluid in the lungs, was the primary cause in addition to a narcotics overdose. Kalelkar said the pulmonary edema was related to the overdose because she was having trouble breathing and her lungs weren’t working properly because her body was shutting down. “The cause of death is very simple. She did not die of an asthma attack,” Kalelkar said, adding that Barzyk was healthy 21-year-old who didn’t have any major health issues. Hillary McElligott, chief forensic pathologist for DuPage County, took the stand for the defense and discussed her findings into what she believed ultimately killed Barzyk. After reviewing multiple documents that included autopsy photos, autopsy reports completed by Kalelkar, a toxicology report and microscopic slides of each organ, McElligott agreed the primary cause of death was a heroin overdose but said there was more to it. She said while looking at the slides of the lung tissue she found cells and mucus blocking the small airways, which can cause constriction. Both

findings, she said, were consistent with an acute asthma attack. As a result of those findings McElligott said the primary cause of death was a heroin overdose with bronchial asthma as a major contributing factor. Sugden asked McElligott if the findings were present in overdoses based on her experience and she said she had not seen either in heroin or cocaine overdose deaths. She also said someone who is overdosing will appear as though they are falling asleep or passing out, whereas someone experiencing a severe asthma attack is more likely to gasp for air and know they are not breathing properly. In cross-examination, Assistant State’s Attorney John Gibbons asked McElligott if the effects of heroin can be exasperated by asthma or if heroin could trigger an asthma attack, and she answered that both were possible. Linder faces 15 to 30 years in prison if convicted of the charge. Based on previous convictions, he could receive an extended sentence that would result in 30 to 60 years in prison. Closing arguments will be given by attorneys Friday morning.

office, have an additional braille row at the bottom that allow visually impaired employees to read materials that would usually show up on a computer screen. Walkington has worked at Horizons for 21 years, he said. It was his first job out of high school.  “It’s a company that is maximizing the potential of blind and visually impaired people, and making things accessible to them,” Walkington said.  Cathy Galizia has worked at Horizons for the past 14 years reviewing products before they leave the facility. Being visually impaired, Galizia remembers reading large-print books as a child. “The stuff wasn’t always put together well,” Galizia said. “And Horizons does a really good job of making sure that things that blind and visually impaired people get they can actually use.”  Throughout the office at 125 Erick St., Suite A103, braille can be seen on business cards, vending machines and plaques on the walls. Horizons also partners with bus companies to help get visually impaired employees to work. Jeffery Thorsen has been a member of Horizons for the Blind’s board of directors for nearly 20 years. He was introduced to the organization through his work with the Crystal Lake Lions Club, a service club whose mission includes helping those with visual impairments.  “It’s about empowerment,” Thorsen said of Horizon’s mission. The organization has succeeded for 40 years because of Caffarelli’s sense of empathy and good business sense, Thorsen said.  “She built it from something very small to something that it is today,” Thorsen said. “It’s a significant enterprise right now.” In the coming years, Caffarelli said she hopes the organization can grow to provide more materials to create an equal environment for those who

Man sues over his flag-burning arrest By SOPHIA TAREEN The Associated Press

CHICAGO – A 22-year-old central Illinois man who was arrested and detained after posting online pictures of himself burning an American flag has filed a federal lawsuit seeking to have the state’s flag desecration law declared unconstitutional. Such state laws are already invalid after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled separately, in 1989 and 1990, that flag burning and other forms of damage are constitutionally protected free speech. However, dozens of states still have the laws. Police in Urbana used Illinois’ flag desecration law to arrest local resident Bryton Mellott on July 4 of last year. He said he carefully planned his demonstration to protest racial discrimination, poverty and other injustices, and then posted six photographs of his actions on Facebook. The posts, which generated hundreds of comments, led police officers to arrest Mellott while he worked at Wal-Mart and detain him for several hours. He was released without being charged. Mellott, who is being represented by the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois, discussed the lawsuit at a

Illinois, Indiana fine hunters who falsify residency

SPRINGFIELD – Conservation officers in Illinois and Indiana said they’ve issued more than $85,000 in fines to hunters who falsely claimed residency in either state to get a hunting permit at a cheaper rate. Illinois Conservation police Sgt. David Hyatt said the joint “Operation Double Dip” started in early 2015 and ran through 2016. He said the investigation “protects the privileges of our legitimate resident hunters.” Both states have laws that say a person may only claim residency in one state at a time when buying a resident hunting or fishing license. In Illinois, 211 people were cited for

HAMMOND, Ind. – The commuter train line that runs from South Bend, Indiana, to Chicago has suspended some service because of weather. John Parsons is spokesman for the Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District, which runs the South Shore Line trains . He told The (Northwest Indiana) Times that the district’s trains kept losing contact Thursday with ice-covered overhead wires.

Adler Planetarium reports record-high attendance

CHICAGO – Chicago’s Adler Planetarium recorded its highest attendance in more than two decades with attractive new exhibits and shows that take on scientific questions. Adler reported 570,000 visitors in 2016. That is more than the site has seen at any point since 1993 when admission was free. The planetarium’s president is Michelle B. Larson. She said more people are coming because the exhibits make them feel more involved. They include award-winning exhibits and popular presentations which explore questions such as why Pluto is no longer a planet. Adler officials hope to welcome more visitors this year with additional exhibits

hasn’t been a priority. About 40 states have flag desecration laws and only a handful have changed them. Wisconsin’s flag desecration law was knocked down by the state Supreme Court in the 1990s and removed. Missouri’s was repealed effective this month, after a long court battle prompted by a similar lawsuit. President-elect Donald Trump recently said that anyone who burns an American flag should face “consequences,” such as jail or a loss of citizenship, despite the Supreme Court determinations. The lawsuit, filed late Wednesday, names several police officers. Urbana police have said they arrested Mellott to protect him from possible backlash from the online posts. An Urbana Police Department spokesman did not return a message seeking comment. An attorney for the ACLU said one of their main goals is to provide clarity for authorities. “It’s very clear that this law is unconstitutional and we want to make sure that in the future, Illinois law enforcement officers know that they cannot arrest people under this statute,” ACLU attorney Rebecca Glenberg said. Mellott also seeks unspecified damages.

FBI’s actions before election to be probed By KEN THOMAS The Associated Press WASHINGTON – In yet another aftershock from the chaotic presidential campaign, the Justice Department inspector general opened an investigation Thursday into department and FBI actions before the election, including whether FBI Director James Comey followed established policies in the email investigation of Hillary Clinton. Democrats have blamed Comey’s handling of the inquiry into Clinton’s use of a private email server, and his late-October public letter about the case, in part for her loss to Republican Donald Trump. Workers are now putting final touches on preparations for next week’s Inauguration Day festivities, and the new probe will not change the election results. But it revives questions of whether the FBI took actions that might have influenced the outcome. Inspector General Michael Horowitz, the department’s internal watchdog, will direct the investigation, which comes in response to requests from members of Congress and the public. Comey said he was pleased about the review and the FBI would cooperate fully with the inspector general. “I hope very much he is able to share his conclusions and observations with the public because everyone will benefit from thoughtful evaluation and transparency regarding this matter,” he said in a statement. Robby Mook, who served as Clinton’s campaign manager, said it had raised concerns when Comey commented on the investigation and said the release of his letters in the days before the election was “extremely destruc-

During a Senate Intelligence Committee briefing on Russian hacking, Comey was pressed by lawmakers of his handling of the investigation. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W. Va., said Comey “defended it very well ... he put the facts out there, and hindsight being 20/20, he said these are the facts I had to deal with, and these are the decisions I made, I’m sorry if someone takes offense.” “He explained to us that he was faced with two decisions – one with very bad consequences and the other with disastrous consequences,” said Sen. Tom Carper, D-Del. “He chose what he thought was the less harmful consequences to our country.” Horowitz’s office is one of many independent investigative bodies designed to oversee the conduct of federal departments and agencies. They most commonly seek to ferret out misconduct and

fraud in the department or among its contractors. Investigating an agency’s top leadership is a rare, but not unheard of, occurrence. One part of the review will concern Comey’s news conference last July in which he said the FBI would not recommend charges against Clinton for her use of a private email system during her tenure as secretary of state. Trump repeatedly criticized that practice, contending it put national security secrets at risk. Trump also declared at raucous rallies during the campaign that he would seek a special prosecutor to investigate Clinton and that she would be in jail if he were elected. But he said after the election that he did not intend to seek a new investigation of her. Comey, during his announcement in the summer, broke protocol when he chastised Clinton and her aides as “extremely careless” in their email practices. It’s highly unusual for federal law enforcement officials to discuss a criminal case that ends without charges being filed.

GOP leaders look to early health care bill; details vague By ALAN FRAM The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Under mounting pressure from Donald Trump and rankand-file Republicans, congressional leaders are talking increasingly about chiseling an early bill that dismantles President Barack Obama’s health care law and begins to supplant it with their own vision of how the nation’s $3 trillion-a-year medical system should work. Yet even as Republicans said they will pursue their paramount 2017 goal aggressively, leaders left plenty of wiggle room Thursday about what exactly they will do. Their caution underscored persistent divisions over how to recraft a law they’ve tried erasing since its 2010 enactment, plus their desire to avoid panicking the 20 million people who’ve gained coverage under Obama’s overhaul or unsettling health insurance markets. In an interview with conservative radio host Mike Gallagher, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said the initial repeal and replace legislation will be “the primary part of our health care policy” and would be followed by other bills. Later, he told reporters at the Capitol that while Republicans will work quickly, “We’re not holding hard deadlines, only because we want to get it right.” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said the early repeal bill would “begin to make important progress.” He said Republicans “plan to take on the replacement challenge in manageable pieces, with step-by-step reforms.” He set no timetable. “Repealing and replacing Obamacare is a big challenge. It isn’t going to be easy,” McConnell added. The leaders spoke a day before the House plans to give final approval to a budget that would shield the forthcoming repeal-and-replace bill from a Dem-

ocratic filibuster in the Senate. Stripping Democrats of their ability to endlessly delay that bill – a tactic that takes 60 votes to thwart – is crucial for Republicans, who have just a 52-48 edge in the Senate. That chamber approved the budget early Thursday by a near party-line 51-48 vote, drawing a Twitter thumbs-up from Trump. “Congrats to the Senate for taking the first step to #RepealObamacare – now it’s onto the House!” the president-elect tweeted. Trump, who enters the White House next Friday, has pressed Republicans in recent days to act quickly on annulling and reshaping Obama’s law. GOP leaders seem to be taking his urgings to heart, though some have suggested his desire for speed doesn’t match Congress’ vintage lack of agility. Asked how quickly lawmakers could send Trump a bill, No. 2 Senate Republican leader John Cornyn of Texas said, “The most important thing is when do you get 218 votes in the House and 51 votes in the Senate,” the majorities needed for passage. “He’s not a creature of this place so there’s always a bit of a learning curve,” said the No. 3 Senate GOP leader, John Thune of South Dakota. Obama’s law, which he considers a trophy of his soon-to-end presidency, has provided health care subsidies and Medicaid coverage for millions who don’t get insurance at work. It has required insurers to cover certain services like family planning and people who are already ill, and curbed rates the sick and elderly can be charged. GOP leaders hope to use their first bill to void and rewrite as much of Obama’s law as they can, but so far they’ve provided little detail. Cornyn said in a brief interview Wednesday that the early legislation will “push some of the responsibility and resources down to the states and give them more flexibility,” such as for Medicaid.

Trump’s Pentagon pick cruises toward likely confirmation ly dissonant with that of his potential commander in chief. Trump has repeatedly praised Putin, even as U.S. intelligence agencies have accused the Russian leader of orchestrating a campaign of interference in the 2016 U.S. election. Of Putin, said Mattis, a former NATO military leader: “He is trying to break the North Atlantic alliance.” He said he has explained to Trump his views on Russia, which include a deep worry that Moscow is determined to use intimidation and nuclear threats to create a sphere of unstable states on its periphery. Mattis, who has served in numerous senior military positions, including commander of U.S. Central Command in charge of all American forces in the Middle East, said he supports the Obama administration’s moves to reassure European allies after Moscow’s annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea region and military activity in eastern Ukraine. While the U.S. should remain open to working with Russia, Mattis said, the prospects for cooperation were narrowing even as areas of disagreement grow larger. As he spoke, Trump’s choice to run the CIA, Rep. Mike Pompeo of Kansas, sided with intelligence officials who claim the Kremlin was behind the elec-

tion cyberattacks, adopting a similarly tough stand against Russia in his confirmation hearing. Ties between the former Cold War foes also have been strained by Syria’s civil war. Mattis faced no hostile questions from Republicans or Democrats, receiving bipartisan praise for his reputation as a straight-talking, well-read man of integrity and intelligence. William Cohen, a defense secretary for Democratic President Bill Clinton, introduced Mattis as a “humble man with very little to be humble about.” “He’s a man of thought as well as action,” Cohen said. Mattis said the world order is under “the biggest attack since World War II,” blaming Russia, China and international terrorist organizations for its destabilization. On cyberattacks, Mattis noted that wars often are started by miscalculation. He said the U.S. needs to set clear boundaries so that adversaries know what the U.S. will not tolerate. In prepared testimony, Mattis said he understands his role as the Defense Department’s civilian leader would be different “in essence and in substance” from his four decades in uniform. He called civilian control “a fundamental tenet of the American military tradition.”

WASHINGTON – Retired Gen. James Mattis on Thursday cruised toward likely confirmation as Donald Trump’s defense secretary, easily prevailing in a Senate vote granting him an exemption to run the Pentagon as a recently retired officer. At his James Mattis confirmation hearing, he called Russia the nation’s No. 1 security threat, accusing its leader of trying to “break” NATO. The Senate voted 81-17 to approve legislation overriding a prohibition against former U.S. service members who have been out of uniform less than seven years from holding the Defense Department’s top job. The restriction is meant to preserve civilian control of the military. The House Armed Services Committee backed the waiver in a 3428 vote; the full House will take up the matter Friday. Mattis, 66, spent four decades in uniform, retiring in 2013 with a reputation as an effective combat leader and an astute strategist. Separate from the override legislation, the Senate will vote later on Mattis’ nomination and will al-

most certainly confirm him. The only other exception to the seven-year rule was made for the legendary George Marshall in 1950, the year Mattis was born. Even some of Trump’s strongest critics have supported the waiver for Mattis, arguing that his experience and temperament can serve as a steadying influence on a new president with no experience in national security. At an uncontentious confirmation hearing, Mattis sketched an international security scene dominated by dark images of an aggressive Russia, resurgent China and violent Mideast. He described Iran as a major destabilizing force, called North Korea a potential nuclear threat and said the U.S. military needs to grow larger and readier for combat. “We see each day a world awash in change,” Mattis said. “Our country is still at war in Afghanistan and our troops are fighting against ISIS and other terrorist groups in the Middle East and elsewhere. Russia is raising grave concerns on several fronts, and China is shredding trust along its periphery.” Mattis portrayed Russia as an adversary and said the history of U.S.-Russian relations is not encouraging. “I have very modest expectations for areas of cooperation with Mr. Putin,” he said, delivering an assessment striking-

Ag secretary: Saving the best for last? It is one week and counting before the Trump administration takes over the reins of the U.S. government. Trump has been a busy man since his surprise victory on Nov. 8. Assembling a White House staff and selecting nominees to be in charge of various departments is a monumental task. With Trump’s announcement Wednesday of his nomination of David Shulkin to lead the sprawling Veterans Affairs department, he has made all his cabinet-level nominations except one. The U.S. Department of Agriculture is important to the nation in general, and to Illinois and McHenry County farmers in particular. The Ag Department offers programs and provides direction in a lot of areas that affect thousands of farmers and ranchers across the country. Names of several potential nominees have been floated in various news reports. Among them: • Sonny Perdue III, former governor of Georgia. Some consider him the front-runner. • Elsa Murano, former president of Texas A&M. • Henry Bonilla, a former Texas congressman. • Sid Miller, Texas agriculture commissioner. • Susan Combs, former Texas agriculture commissioner. • Abel Maldonado, former California lt. governor. • Butch Otter, Idaho governor. • Heidi Heitkamp, U.S. senator from North Dakota. Whoever is nominated will take over from Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack, the former governor of Iowa who has served all eight years of President Barack Obama’s tenure. Issues facing the new ag secretary are many. American farmers export a lot of their crops and commodities, so they could be impacted by any changes the new administration might make in import and export policy. If the new administration relaxes environmental regulations, farmers could well benefit. The new ag secretary also will be called on to deal with the intricacies of the 2018 Farm Bill. In any endeavor such as choosing cabinet-level secretaries, someone has to be last. We hope the Ag Department’s appearance at the bottom of Mr. Trump’s nominee list isn’t any sort of an indication of his regard for America’s hard-working farmers and ranchers. Perhaps Mr. Trump is merely saving the best for last. We sincerely hope that is the case.




Trump’s vaccine view defies science Donald Trump’s views on vaccines have long been out of sync with science. Childhood vaccines cause autism, he asserted at a debate in 2015, echoing statements he had made in 2014 and 2012. But now the president-elect is poised to do more than just pass along misinformation: He has asked a die-hard “anti-vaxxer” to lead a commission on “vaccination and scientific integrity.” The appointee is Robert Kennedy Jr., who has been skeptical about vaccines for years, believing -- like Trump, on zero evidence –that the preservative some contain is linked to autism. Sadly, this is not just a matter of two men sharing a thoroughly debunked theory. In the U.S., and increasingly the rest of the world, notions about the danger of vaccines are spreading, causing some parents to skip them altogether and increasing the risk that children will suffer

and die from measles and other preventable illnesses. In Texas, which has become the center of the anti-vaccination movement, tens of thousands of children are going without vaccines, a 20-fold increase since 2003. The danger is that Trump and Kennedy will stoke more pushback against state requirements that children be vaccinated against major communicable illnesses before enrolling in school. Most states allow religious exemptions from such rules, but only 18 still allow exemptions based on personal beliefs. Texas is the largest of these, and the legislature is debating various ways to strengthen its law. All states should, at least, require schools to publish the percentage of their students who have been vaccinated, so that parents can be assured that the schools are safe. Vaccines are safe, as any number of studies and reports

have shown. The only study that ever claimed to detect any link between vaccines and autism famously turned out to be a fraud, and its author was barred from practicing medicine. Doctors have also demonstrated that the recommended inoculation schedule for children is not too early or too rushed, as Trump has alleged. On the contrary, it’s important to protect the very young from whooping cough, diphtheria and other illnesses, and it is essential that they get vaccines when they will be most effective. Kennedy said Tuesday that he and the president-elect simply think “we ought to be reading the science and we ought to be debating the science.” If the two men were that reasonable, they wouldn’t be making vaccines an issue at all.

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

VIEWS Chris Cillizza reporters. (Not true!) As evidence that no one cares about his tax returns, Trump offered this: “I won.” • Given the chance to condemn Russian President Vladimir Putin, Trump did not. Instead, he said it was an “asset” that Putin allegedly likes him. When asked directly about the Russian hacking of the election, Trump acknowledged it was probably Russia – which is further than he has gone before – but quickly pivoted to emphasize that Putin wouldn’t be doing these sorts of things under a Trump administration. • Trump began his news conference with somewhat surprising words of praise for the media and their discernment in not publishing allegations in a Russia dossier. (BuzzFeed did publish the full dossier, even though the allegations are unsubstantiated and have not been corroborated by any major news organization to

date.) But, by the end of the news conference, Trump was back to his old, media-hating self; he shouted down CNN’s Jim Acosta, who repeatedly tried to ask him a question – eventually telling Acosta that he was “fake news.” Those four examples – and those were only the four that immediately sprang to mind – make very clear that Trump has absolutely no plan to pivot when he assumes the presidency. He is who he is. There is no Trump but Trump. I’ve long believed that talk of a pivot or an unveiling of a “more presidential” Trump, which has been a nonstop subject since it became clear Trump would be the Republican presidential nominee last spring, is an absolute misjudgment not only of Trump but of what his many victories over the past 18 months have taught him. Ask yourself this: How many 70-year-old men fundamentally change their personality? How about 70-year-old men who have been extremely successful? Is there a number less than zero?

That was true even before Trump started to win primaries and caucuses over the course of 2016. What his primary win taught him was that he was right and the “Republican brain trust” was wrong. What his general election victory taught him was that he was right and that everyone in the political class – elected officials, consultants, the media – was wrong. Why the hell would Trump change his approach to politics and policy after the year he has had? The simple answer is he wouldn’t. For Trump, the ends justify the means. In winning, he showed that everything from tax returns to blind trusts to cordial relations with the media were immaterial to regular people. “How can it be bad/wrong if I won?” is the Trump thought on, well, everything. His news conference on Wednesday proved that basic belief won’t be changing when the president-elect becomes the president in nine days.

Donald Trump took questions from the media Wednesday for the first time since he was elected president on Nov. 8. And he quickly put to rest the idea that his rapidly approaching presidency would fundamentally change his tone, style or basic approach to issues and the media. Consider: • Trump – through a lawyer – said he would not put his assets in a blind trust, the traditional way in which presidents wall off their private interests from their public obligations. Trump was also quick to note that as president it is impossible for him to, legally speaking, have a conflict of interest and, therefore, any steps he takes to separate his business interests from his presidency were above and beyond the call of duty. (This was a similar line of logic used by Trump’s lawyer to explain how he would deal with the Emoluments clause.) • Trump refused to offer a timetable for the release of his tax returns. He insisted that the only people who care about his tax returns are

BUSINESS U.S. accuses Fiat Chrysler of cheating on emissions By TOM KRISHER and MICHAEL BIESECKER The Associated Press WASHINGTON – The U.S. government accused Fiat Chrysler on Thursday of failing to disclose software in some of its pickups and SUVs with diesel engines that allows them to emit more pollution than allowed under the Clean Air Act. The Environmental Protection Agency issued a “notice of violation” to the company that covers about 104,000 vehicles including the 2014 through 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Ram pickups, all with 3-liter diesel engines. The California Air Resources Board took similar action. “Failing to disclose software that affects emissions in a vehicle’s engine is a serious violation of the law, which can result in harmful pollution in the air we breathe,” said Cynthia Giles, EPA assistant administrator for enforcement and compliance. Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne denied any wrongdoing, saying the EPA was blowing the issue out of proportion. “We have done in our view nothing that is illegal,” he said Thursday on a conference call. “We will defend our behavior in the right environment.” Marchionne said he was told by company lawyers that the Justice Department is investigating the company in concert with the EPA, raising the likelihood of an ongoing criminal probe. He said the company halted production of Grand Cherokees and Rams with diesel engines in September, but

On Thursday, the U.S. government alleged that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles failed to disclose that software in some of its pickups and SUVs with diesel engines allows them to emit more pollution than allowed under the Clean Air Act. will continue to sell models manufactured before then that are still on dealers’ lots. The company said it intends to present its case to the incoming Trump administration. “We will work with the new leadership to get this issue through,” Marchionne said. A spokesman for President-elect Donald Trump did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The White House said Thursday that EPA makes enforcement decisions independently and that outgoing President Barack Obama wasn’t involved in the

decision to cite the company. If found liable, Fiat Chrysler could face more than $4.5 billion in potential fines for violations of the Clean Air Act. EPA said it will continue to investigate the “nature and impact” of the eight software functions identified through an intensive testing program launched after Volkswagen was caught in a 2015 cheating scandal involving its “Clean Diesel” line of vehicles. Regulators were not yet defining the software found in the Fiat Chrysler vehicles as so-called “defeat devices” intended to

cheat on government emissions tests. However, the agency said that numerous discussions with Fiat Chrysler over the past year had not produced any suitable explanation for why the company had failed to disclose the software, which regulators said caused the vehicles to emit less pollution during testing than during regular driving. “This is a clear and serious violation of the Clean Air Act,” Giles said. “When companies break the law, Americans depend on EPA to step in and enforce.” On Thursday California regulators also announced they were citing Fiat Chrysler for 11 violations under that state’s strict air quality standards. Fiat Chrysler said in a statement that its emissions control systems “meet the applicable requirements” and that it spent months giving information to the EPA to explain its emissions technology and proposed a number of actions including software changes to address the agency’s concerns. Regulators said owners of the affected models do not yet need to take any action and that they should continue driving their vehicles. The announcement comes one day after Fiat rival Volkswagen pleaded guilty in federal court to criminal charges related to widespread cheating involving emissions tests, agreeing to pay a record $4.3 billion penalty. Six high-ranking VW executives have been charged in the scandal, which prompted a nationwide recall of more than a half-million affected cars and SUVs.

NEW YORK – John Legend and Ariana Grande will record the theme to Disney’s live-action “Beauty and the Beast” remake. The pair will sing the duet first sung by Angela Lansbury in the 1991 animated film and then recorded for the movie’s soundtrack by Celine Dion and Peabo Byson for the 1991 animated film. The song, penned by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, won an Oscar and a Grammy. “Beauty and the Beast,” starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, will be released March 17.


Baldwin mulls other venues for Trump impression

Damien Chazelle, director and screenwriter for “La La Land,” stands Sunday with the award for best screenplay – motion picture at the 74th annual Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, Calif. On Thursday, Chazelle scored his first Directors Guild Award nomination for outstanding directorial achievement for a feature film, Thursday,

Directors Guild announces 2017 nominees for film achievement LOS ANGELES – It was another sunny day Thursday for Damien Chazelle’s Los Angeles musical “La La Land” and Barry Jenkins’ coming-of-age tale “Moonlight” on the long journey to the Oscars. After winning the top film awards at the Golden Globes, Chazelle and Jenkins both scored their first nomination for a Directors Guild Award, further enhancing the likelihood of an Oscar nod. The guild’s nominees for outstanding directorial achievement for a feature film also included “Manchester by the Sea” director Kenneth Lonergan, “Lion” director Garth Davis and Denis Villeneuve of “Arrival.” Davis is also nominated for best first feature along with Nate Parker for “Birth of a Nation.” Publicity about a 17-year-old rape allegation against Parker had seemed to sink his chances for awards. Parker was acquitted. Other first feature nominees include Dan Trachtenberg for “10 Cloverfield Lane,” Tim Miller for “Deadpool” and Kelly Fremon Craig for “The Edge of Seventeen.” While the DGA nominees for feature film achievement rarely match up exactly with nods for the Academy Award, the guild choices can be a formidable predictor of the eventual Oscar winner. With nearly 16,000 members, including TV and commercial directors, the guild often selects a more populist lineup when compared with the selections of the nearly 400 members of the directors’ branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

NEW YORK – Alec Baldwin may be taking his Donald Trump act on the road. Baldwin told ABC News that he is “in discussions” with other venues for his impression of the president-elect besides NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” The 58-year-old actor has played Trump on SNL since last year. He said he will continue to play Trump on the late-night comedy show while also looking for other opportunities to spoof the incoming Republican president. Baldwin said he is “not really influencing anybody’s political opinions.” But he said playing Trump is “one of the most fun things” he’s ever done. Trump has complained about Baldwin’s SNL appearances on Twitter. He said last month that “the Baldwin impersonation just can’t get any worse.” Baldwin is also hosting the game show “Match Game” on ABC.

Despite widespread attention in recent years to gender inequality in the film industry, the study found not only that opportunities aren’t improving, but are getting slightly worse. Nearly 20 years ago, in 1998, 9 percent of the top films were directed by women. Researchers found the disparity across the board. In 2016, women comprised 17 percent of all directors, writers, producers, executive producers, editors and cinematographers in the top 250 domestic-grossing films. That also is a decline of 2 percent from 2015.

Life of a


An unexpectedly beautiful view of fatherhood, from the bathroom floor By JOSHUA MOHR The Washington Post I’m so tired I rub toothpaste on my face instead of lotion. That’s how the day starts, at 6:30, with Colgate in my beard, smelling minty fresh in an almost sarcastic way, welcoming me to yet another morning of being bullied by my 3-year old, who pushes her way into the bathroom and plops on her mini-toilet and asks me to read to her while she uses it. So there I sit, crashed on the floor, while the young princess brings the heat. And I don’t mean princess in a metaphorical way. I mean, she’s wearing a princess dress. Her long blonde hair is tangled and matted in all sorts of crazy angles and the whole thing makes me wonder whether this is what it would be like to live with Courtney Love. Regardless, this is the life of a dad, and there I sit. Plenty of time to wash off the toothpaste later. Plenty of time to sleepwalk through all of the obligations of domestic responsibility, but for the next few minutes, this will be the highlight of my day. “Daddy, George,” says Ava, looking at up at me. That would be Curious George, her spirit animal. “Daddy, read!” she says, impatient, about to chastise her lazy butler, and I start at the beginning: “This is George . . .” As a recovering alcoholic and addict, I’m no stranger to the bathroom floor. I freebased bad ideas for years. I know it sounds strange, but these are the moments of being a parent that mean the most. Oh, sure, there are those “hero parent” moments when you have some sort of poignant shard in time, just a beat, before another tantrum or tirade erupts. But I don’t like the moments that are supposed to be valuable, memorable. Maybe it’s the novelist in me, but I dig the weird and uncomfortable times, finding beauty in the confusing business of being alive. Take yesterday, just another morning stop at the grocery store

after dropping Ava off at day care. I made my way to the egg section, where I’m spending the equivalent of college tuition on organic eggs, one dozen at a time – don’t get me started – and I’m probably muttering that sour sentiment while I walk down the aisle, until some 19-year old stocking Cheetos laughs at me. To recap: A teenager. Stocking Cheetos. Laughing in my face. In ye olden days of the bathroom floor, this would not have ended well for the lad, but I am, well, not reformed exactly, but I don’t punch as many people as was the custom. I stop and say to Chips, “What?” “Back pocket, dude,” he says, using a bag of Cheetos as some grotesque prop to point at me, making this even worse. Then to accent his pity, he says that last melodious syllable one more time: “Duuuude.” I pat a paw back there to see what he’s talking about and that’s when I find them, feel them. The cotton fabric. The embroidered edges. A sewn-on princess. It’s a pair of my daughter’s Disney undies, hanging out of my back pocket. Like a red or blue bandanna from a gang member’s jeans, from one of those ’80s flicks set in Compton, the colors marking an affiliation. But I’m no Blood, no Crip. No, I’m a parent. That’s my street gang. “Thanks,” I say to Chips, bunching the undies up and cramming them down deep. Am I embarrassed? I’m too tired to be embarrassed. I’m too – if this makes any sense – in love to be embarrassed. When my marriage to my first wife was ending, when she couldn’t issue any more ultimatums or cry or pray or scream anymore, when I’d barricaded myself behind a wall of disappointments, she said to me: “You should want to be more.” “More than what?” I said through a small hole in the wall. I couldn’t hear anything. I’d filled my ears with drugs. “Be more than this.” At the time, all I could make out

Joshua Mohr and his daughter. was a guilt trip, another futile route for her to try to get through to me. I resented help, thinking it was for suckers. I was in my late 20s, and I was going to write bestsellers, was going to teach at the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. Most likely, I’d buff a Pulitzer or four. I was going to bungee jump with Salman Rushdie – and maybe we would let Toni Morrison come along, assuming she could remember the Secret Genius Handshake. Keep in mind that writers have to actually – wait, what’s that thing they have to do? – oh yeah, write. And any extraordinary junkie can’t be bothered with something that might get in the way of the next high. I got lucky. My health failed. I needed heart surgery. Did you hear me say I was lucky? That’s maybe the only thing I know for sure in the muddy morality of planet Earth: If you get sober at 33, you are incredibly lucky, even with the heart surgery. Yes, I torched a first marriage, and I have to live knowing it was my fault. In rehab, though, I sat around people in their 50s and 60s, disasters tattooed on their faces, a whole army of aches scattered around them. People whose children detested them, and not a day goes by that I don’t recognize the splendor in Ava’s never knowing that part of me. Forget scuba diving with Rushdie; my only remaining goal in life is to never

let Ava meet the madman who squats in my heart, hoping I’ll indulge his awful appetites. I’m 40 now, clean for seven years. I got so lucky, in fact, that I get to sit here with toothpaste on my face, sprawled on the bathroom floor in a whole new way, in the best way. She is done with her business and stands up, wildly batting at the toilet paper, so it’s streaming all over the floor. I wish you could see her. I wish you could watch the toilet paper fly. My second wife, with whom I work daily to destroy any new walls of disappointment, would wander in and flop down next to me, and we’d watch Ava in awe. I mean, she’d make me collect every last shred of toilet paper later, but she’d co-sign this overindulgence. Ava keeps spinning the roll, keeps laughing, and the whole bathroom floor is covered in a layer of toilet paper like fresh snow. And if it was a thing, if this was a thing that anyone actually did, or if there was simply more leg room in our small bathroom, I’d lay back flat, swing my legs and move my arms to make the most amazing toilet paper snow angel the world has ever known. “Enough, Daddy?” says Ava, with another maniacal shove of the roll, another flurry of snow falling on us. “Is this enough?” It is. It is. It is.

• Make a game out of trying new foods.

The Scritchfields often do a “cheers!” with their broccoli and then everyone votes “thumbs up, thumbs down or thumbs to the side” after they taste it. Be consistent and offer fruits, veggies and other nutritious foods each day but expect the kids to go through phases of preference and put up some resistance. Your job is to not engage in “food fights” with them. • Bake together. It sets up the idea that dessert is a part of life and not something to be afraid of – plus it will taste better. It counters so many other messages about avoiding desserts, which can create food fear. “You can’t

run forever,” Scritchfield said. “It’s better to build the confidence so kids think, ‘I can make it delicious and fun.’ ” • Clean out your closet. Break up with dieting culture by accepting there is no magical time in the future when your body is smaller and, therefore, life will be happier. Get rid of the clothes that won’t ever fit right and then donate them to charity. You don’t have to announce to your kids exactly what you’re doing, but let them see that you’re helping the community. “That letting go is important for them to see.” • Fear no Barbie. Dolls have their place in imaginative play, so Scritchfield “doesn’t drive a super hard line” against them. Many doll collections have diversified over the years, so be sure to choose a variety of shapes and colors. If your child notices some strange body proportions, “instead of burning the doll and freaking out, it’s your chance to have an honest conversation about how it is a toy.” • Chill out together. Every day for a few minutes, the whole family can practice being quiet. This can be taking deep breaths (the yoga-inclined can call them “Namaste breaths” and put their hands together). For younger kids, it might help to make it into a game like “sit quiet like a frog.” “You’re practic-

ing that skill so when you need to use it, you can jump to it,” she said. Bonus: kids will internalize the need to regroup and be able to point out moments when they (and you!) could use a deep breath. • Play actively. Hopscotch in the driveway, freeze dance with their favorite songs, letting them try your workout DVDs with you. Little kids will think it’s silly fun, but it’s valuable, active bonding time. • Don’t talk badly to yourself. Complaining about your appearance or what you ate doesn’t serve your health goals and it potentially could damage your children. “Yes, your kids hear the negative talk, learn it and are hurt by it. It’s confusing and it can become their inner voice.”

• Support body-positive products and companies. Don’t buy diet foods at the

grocery store or magazines that focus on weight loss. “People think, ‘I can do this for me and hide it from my kid,’ but that doesn’t work,” Scritchfield said. “You’re participating in diet culture, and even very young kids are more perceptive than we think.”

Most mothers want to raise strong girls who feel good about their bodies and don’t obsess about being thin. But how? Especially around New Year’s resolution time, it can seem like the entire culture is focused on dieting. Even among girls who clearly are not overweight, more than one-third report dieting, according to the National Eating Disorders Association. Rebecca Scritchfield is a Washington mother of two young girls and also a registered dietitian and nutritionist. She is the author of the new book “Body Kindness: Transform Your Health from the Inside Out – and Never Say Diet Again,” which teaches women how to transform their health by treating themselves with empathy. Diets, juice cleanses and punishing fitness classes are nowhere to be found in Scritchfield’s guide. Instead, it’s about listening to yourself and figuring out what you need in each moment. Do you really need to check your work email again or can you give yourself permission to go to sleep? Could you use a fun night out with friends? A hike? Your favorite dessert? Go for it. We spoke to Scritchfield about how

she is passing the body kindness approach down to her daughters. Here are some ideas to try today, which obviously work with boys as well: • Cook dinner with the kids. Yes, it is messier and takes longer. But Scritchfield considers it “one of the best things I can do for their well-being for their life.” That’s because it models the value of eating nutritious foods prepared at home. She finds one way her kids can help out, such as counting the green beans or taking the waste tips to the compost bin. Older kids, of course, can have bigger jobs such as chopping or mixing.

Talc-ovarian cancer link not proven Dear Doctor: Some women, and juries, say talc causes ovarian cancer, but doctors say it doesn’t. Where’s the evidence either way? Dear Reader: Talc is a mineral composed of magnesium and silicate. Talcum powder, commonly known as baby powder, was first marketed by Johnson & Johnson in 1894. It first was used, and still is used, to prevent diaper rash. The concern regarding ovarian cancer is talc may pass into a woman’s uterus and then move up the fallopian tubes during menses. In fact, talc particles have been found in the fallopian tubes of women who have used talcum powder on sanitary napkins or pads. The suggestion that talcum powder may lead to ovarian cancer first came from case-control studies. The largest of these was a combined analysis of eight different studies that compared 8,525 women (cases) who had ovarian cancers and 9,859 women (controls) who did not. In the studies, researchers asked women if they had used talcum powder in the genital area previously and how frequently. The authors concluded the use of genital powder was associated with a 20 to 30 percent increase in some types of ovarian cancer. One problem with that analysis is some powders contain cornstarch, not talc. The other problem is of recall bias. Women with ovarian cancer may report previous use of powders because they believe there may be a link between the powder and their ovarian cancer. Other case-control studies have come up with similar conclusions. Based on such data, many lawsuits have contended a link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer. Two of these lawsuits have led to judgments of $72 million and $55 million against Johnson & Johnson. One difficulty with analyzing statistical links to ovarian cancer is the disease is somewhat rare; over her lifetime, the average

ASK THE DOCTORS Robert Ashley woman has only about a 1 percent chance of developing it. To truly study a potential link between ovarian cancer and talcum powder, you would need large studies. You also would need prospective studies. A prospective study in this case would assess talcum powder use and follow women over time to see whether they developed ovarian cancer. Several studies have attempted to do this. The Nurses’ Health Study included 78,683 women followed for nearly 13 years. These women were asked about their use of talcum powder and, over the course of 13 years, 307 cases of ovarian cancer were found. Note that researchers did not find talcum powder to be associated with ovarian cancer, although they did find a 9 percent increase among women who used talcum powder. The Women’s Health Initiative included 61,000 women followed for more than 12 years. In that study, researchers also found a minimal increase in ovarian cancer, but not a statistically significant one. The biggest problem with these prospective studies is they need to be even larger and longer. It’s possible there is a minimal increase in ovarian cancer among menstruating women who use talcum powder. However, this may have more historical relevance than topical relevance because fewer women are using talcum powder today than in years past. If you do use a genital powder, cornstarch powder would be a good alternative to talc. • Send your questions to askthedoctors@ or write Ask the Doctors, c/o Media Relations, UCLA Health, 924 Westwood Blvd., Suite 350, Los Angeles, CA 90095.

need your help in dealing with an old “frenemy.” “Jenny” and I were friends in high school, but she constantly berated me and accused me of taking advantage of her. After she went away to college, she got pregnant by a non-boyfriend. When she had an abortion, she swore me to secrecy because she didn’t tell the father. Shortly thereafter, he came to me and tricked me into telling him. To this day, Jenny still blames me and says I was out to get her and ruin her life. Jenny spread rumors about me around our group of friends, on the internet, and told my mom horrible lies about me. She even threatened a lawsuit. Ten years later, she still pops up out of the blue to attack me. A year ago, she sent me a message saying she wished I had died in a tornado that struck my area. I never respond because that’s what she wants. She pops up at the worst times and makes me feel worse. How should I deal with her? – At A Boiling Point In Tennessee Dear Boiling: Continue to ignore this troubled woman. Block her anywhere you can, and delete any messages that leak through so you won’t have to see them. If you have mutual friends who don’t know the whole story, you should have enlightened them years ago – and the same goes for your mother. Jenny appears to have serious issues. She isn’t a “frenemy.” She is strictly bad news, so recognize it and move on. Dear Abby: While preparing a letter at work, I noticed it was going to be mailed to a married lesbian couple. What’s the proper way to address a gay couple? – Proper In Illinois Dear Proper: According to Steven Petrow’s “Complete Gay and Lesbian Manners,” the correct way to address the envelopes of married gay and lesbian couples should be (in alphabetical order): Mr. Bradley Burch and Mr. Mark Foster Ms. Cecelia Carter and Ms. Diane Grant Or, if the couple shares the same last name: Mr. Bradley and Mr. Mark Burch Ms. Cecelia and Ms. Diane Carter Dear Abby: Now that I’m older, I often find it hard to remember all the names and amounts of my prescriptions when I visit my various doctors. To help myself, I carry in my wallet a small copy of a spreadsheet listing all my medication information. That way, I can give accurate details to the physician. I’d like to pass my solution on to other readers who might have the same need to be precise and up-to-date when visiting the doctor. – In

Will Rogers said, “Politics has become so expensive that it takes a lot of money even to be defeated.” Isn’t that the truth? At the bridge table, though, we try to defeat declarer by assuming partner has the cheapest hand to achieve that end. This deal occurred during the World Youth Teams Championship in Italy last year. At the first table, North-South had made three notrump. Let’s see how Harald Eide (East) and Christian Bakke from Norway worked out what to do. The auction was optimistic. North really should have passed over one diamond with that 4-3-3-3 garbage. When she dragged up a one-heart response, South’s two-no-trump rebid indicated a strong hand with long diamonds. North’s three diamonds was weak and denied five hearts. West led the spade three, not the ideal start. South took East’s jack with his ace and returned a spade to dummy’s 10, East playing the seven: high-low with a remaining doubleton. Now declarer led a diamond to his queen, East playing the two, upside-down count. What did Bakke do after winning with his king? He realized that declarer had started with 3-1-6-3 or 3-2-6-2 distribution, and that his side needed to take four heart tricks now. If South had a low doubleton, West had to shift to a low heart. But Bakke decided that declarer was more likely to be 1-3 than 2-2 in the rounded suits, so he led the heart king to swallow South’s queen and collect the necessary number of tricks.

Kevin Kaczmarski of Cary, a Class A minor-league player with the New York Mets, recently had surgery to repair a torn abdominal muscle. The 2010 Prairie Ridge graduate batted .280 last season despite playing with the injury.

Cary’s Kaczmarski played through abdominal injury By JOE STEVENSON

What to watch NHL: Blackhawks at Washington, 6 p.m., CSN The Hawks, coming off a sweep of a fourgame homestand, go for their fifth consecutive win when they visit the Capitals. Kevin Kaczmarski noticed something different recently during his offseason workouts. Something vastly and relievingly different. The New York Mets minor league outfielder had grown so accustomed to dealing with the pain in his abdomen that he forgot what normal felt like. “I got so used to babying it and shutting it off and limiting my movement so it wouldn’t hurt me,” said Kaczmarski, a 2010 Prairie Ridge graduate. “So now it’s kind of cool; I can be explosive and not think about what I have to do.” That Kaczmarski played as well as he did, hitting .280 and driving in 46 runs between the Mets’ Class A affiliates in Columbia, South Carolina, and St. Lucie, Florida, is remarkable considering what he was up against. Kaczmarski thought he had an abdominal strain that refused to heal properly because of his high level of


It’s minor league ball. You don’t want to be the guy who’s always out for injuries or be the guy who can’t play through pain.”

activity. Finally, after the season when it still was nagging him, he discovered the problem was a tear of his rectus abdominus, “the six-pack muscles” as Kaczmarski called it. Suddenly, everything made more sense. There was a legitimate reason for the constant nagging pain. And after surgery in early December, Kaczmarski is even more excited as he looks toward his second full minor

league season. Kaczmarski became known through Prairie Ridge’s run to the 2008 Class 4A state championship. He and Justin Henderson were sophomore call-ups for the postseason and were utilized by Wolves coach Dave Haskins for their blazing speed as pinch runners. Kaczmarski assumed a much bigger role as center fielder his junior and senior seasons and earned a scholarship to NCAA Division I Evansville. He finished his career with the Purple Aces by leading the NCAA in batting average (.465) and triples (nine) in 2015. The Mets took the speedy left-handed hitter in the ninth round of the 2015 First-Year Player Draft. In April last year, just after spring training, Kaczmarski headed to the Columbia Fireflies, who were playing in a brilliant new stadium that won Field of the Year honors in the minors. He was in the everyday lineup, in right field or left field.

See KACZMARSKI, page 3




• KACZMARSKI Continued from page 2 “I noticed something in my lower ab and (right) groin area and thought, ‘This doesn’t feel too good,’ ” said Kaczmarski, who is 25. “But I kept playing through it, tried to tolerate it. It’s minor league ball. You don’t want to be the guy who’s always out for injuries or be the guy who can’t play through pain.” Eventually, the pain worsened and Kaczmarski talked with the Fireflies trainer. He took a couple of weeks off, then forged ahead, although the pain still was there. “It was kind of nagging me, but that comes with injuries,” Kaczmarski said.


Ryan Dykes McHenry, jr., 195 pounds

Dykes beat Angel Montes by pin midway through the second period, putting the Golden Eagles up by 11 points and all but sealing Jacobs’ victory with four bouts still to go.



Wins by pin for Jacobs, plus one forfeit, providing key bonus points


John Konstantaras for Shaw Media

Jacobs’ Justin Peters (on top) breaks down McHenry’s Matt Gutierrez in their 106-pound match during a dual meet Thursday at McHenry East. Peters pinned Gutierrez.

The most exciting match of the night was at 182 pounds, between McHenry’s Jake Leske and Jacobs’ Loren Strickland, with both state-ranked wrestlers attacking aggressively, getting multiple reversals and a couple of near falls. Strickland won, 11-10, in a bout that went right to the buzzer. “He’s like a gunslinger. Some days he’s got the gun out, and other days he’s falling on his back,” Jacobs coach Gary Conrad said of Strickland. “He missed a day of practice the other day because he got injured, so he came back off an injury just now. I think it showed he wasn’t at practice.”

and get everyone cleaned up because we’re always sloppy in the beginning,” Jacobs coach Gary Conrad said. “That’s why it [stinks] when you’ve got to wrestle the best teams right away, because we’re not full tilt yet. But, yeah, we’ve been wrestling really well. ... It’s all starting to come together.” The dual was tight all the way, with the lead swinging back and forth, never extending to more than a couple of results either way. Starting at 120, McHenry’s Lucas Busse put the hosts ahead right away with a 3-1 decision over fellow ranked wrestler Beau Harrier. Jacobs then took the lead with wins in the next two bouts, a pin by Johnny Ridle (126) and a decision by Dominic

Tenayuca (132). McHenry went back into the lead with a pin from Andrew Hertel-Pence (138) and a decision from Kerick Mesa (145). A major decision by Jacobs’ David Dudych (152) and a 26-second pin by Sabella (160) gave the Golden Eagles a lead, one they didn’t relinquish over the final seven bouts. Jacobs also got a win from Loren Strickland (182) in a wild 11-10 match against McHenry senior Jake Leske, a pin by Ryan Dykes (195), then a pin by Justin Peters (106) and a forfeit win for Jake Harrier (113). “It was a little tough working in the first period trying to take him down, but toward the second I knew I just had to

keep working to get that pin to kind of seal the deal,” Dykes said. McHenry (11-8, 3-4 FVC) also got wins from Jaden Glauser (170) by tech fall, Sweeney (220) by decision and Geoff Cagle (285) by pin. The Warriors just couldn’t overcome the forfeit from a sick 113-pounder and losses in a couple swing matches. “We wrestled our butts off. We came out on the wrong end of a couple and that was the difference, but we wrestled awesome,” McHenry coach Jake Guardalabene said. “It was good team wrestling.”

“You get to the point where you could play. It might nag you, but at least you could play. I noticed it in the weight room with certain lifts. In the game, you don’t notice it as much because of your adrenaline. I just felt it all the time. I was like, ‘Man, this thing isn’t right.’ ” Kaczmarski kept plugging away and was promoted to high-A St. Lucie, where he will go for spring training next month. He hit even better at that level (.301) and stole eight bases without being caught. When he finished the season, Kaczmarski looked forward to some rest to finish the healing process, but the abdomen still hurt. He called his trainer and was flown to Philadelphia, where the Mets’ doctor for that area of the body works. The doctor quickly

diagnosed Kaczmarski’s injury as a torn rectus abdominus. “Luckily my mom (Valerie) went with me so I had somebody to chill with,” Kaczmarski said. “They reattached the muscle. It was my fourth or fifth surgery I’ve had, and as far as the day after, it was the most painful. You use your abdominals for everything. If I talked too loud, if I sneezed, if I laughed, it hurt so bad.” Kaczmarski was sent to a yoga class the next day to start breaking down scar tissue. It was excruciating, and he thought he was going to retear the muscle. But he was assured that area of the body heals quickly, and in a few weeks he felt almost normal. Kaczmarski has been back in Cary with his parents, Randy and Valerie, for

the offseason and plans to start hitting again soon now that he has healed. As frustrating as the 2016 season was, he was glad he battled through it. “I was talking to (Prairie Ridge assistant basketball coach) Ray Card, and he said it was probably a blessing to play through it,” Kaczmarski said. “If I had surgery, I could have missed half the season. I played through and did well with it. You don’t want to be missing games all the time. “When you get to the big leagues, you’re established. But in the minor leagues, you have guys trying to take your spot, you’re trying to take their spot. You miss time, and it doesn’t reflect as the greatest thing. It’s one of those things that if you overcome and stay focused, good things can happen.”

McHENRY – Jacobs freshman Nick Nygaard had just lost his 220-pound match to a senior with at least a few inches of height on him, and he needed some ice for his back. As Nygaard talked to the mat-side trainer, senior teammate Jacob Sabella came over to congratulate him. Nygaard hadn’t won, but he had held off McHenry’s AJ Sweeney enough to keep it to a minor decision, only conceding three team points. Sabella and the Jacobs bench had done the math for the remaining matches and knew that Nygaard’s resistance had sealed the Fox Valley Conference victory for the Golden Eagles. Jacobs and McHenry were so evenly matched Thursday at McHenry East that picking up or holding off bonus points in the swing matches made all the difference. The Golden Eagles eventually won, 40-26, winning seven of 13 contested bouts and receiving a forfeit. Of their seven wins, four were by pin and one was by major decision. “Everyone contributed this meet, that was the greatest part,” Sabella said. “Everyone didn’t give up any more bonus points than they should. Reese (Wiggins) at 170 had a great opponent, he didn’t give up the pin. Nygaard didn’t give up more than a minor. Everyone who wrestled just wrestled their butt off so they didn’t give up more than they should. ... We had a lot of big wins, we all wrestled great.” After losing two of its first three conference duals, Jacobs is 5-2 in FVC action, 11-3 overall and on pace to finish third in the conference standings behind Huntley and Crystal Lake Central. “We always get better at the end of the year. We’ve got to get in tip top shape

Toussaint scores 33 for Skyhawks St. Pierre’s season over; R-B center to have surgery By JOE STEVENSON


Mason Sobiesk Johnsburg, jr., F

Sobiesk scored 12 points and grabbed a game-high 14 rebounds. He had six rebounds in the fourth quarter, most on the defensive end as Johnsburg never trailed in that quarter.


JOHNSBURG – Johnsburg sophoR-B’s Blaine Bayer scored his team’s more Zach Toussaint has experienced a first 13 points as the Rockets bolted to taste of the Skyhawks’ rivalry with Richa 13-2 lead. mond-Burton and enjoys it. A lot. q AND ANOTHER THING ... Toussaint and the Skyhawks started R-B center Joey St. Pierre’s season is over. The 6-foot-9 senior has been trying to play through slowly but finished strong. The 5-footthe pain in his back from scar tissue blocking 10 point guard tossed in 13 of his gamehis kidney. Rockets coach Brandon Creason high 33 points in the fourth quarter, and said St. Pierre finally had to shut it down and Johnsburg held off the Rockets, 75-67, will have surgery, which will require about six in their Kishwaukee River Conference weeks of recovery time. boys basketball game Thursday night. “Those are the most fun games to be in,” said Toussaint, who was 3 for 4 in one was even better.” Johnsburg (8-6, 2-1 KRC) held a 61-59 the fourth with a pair of 3-pointers. “Our first game with Richmond (a one-point lead with 3:30 remaining before Touswin at Thanksgiving) was fun, and this saint and forward Brody Frazier, who


scored a season-high 17 points, gave the Skyhawks enough cushion. Frazier hit two free throws, Toussaint nailed his last 3, then hit two free throws with 1:35 remaining. R-B’s Blaine Bayer, who scored 27 points, was called for his fifth foul at that point, which meant further trouble for the Rockets, who were behind, 68-60. “Things kind of opened up for Zach in the second half,” Johnsburg coach Mike Toussaint said. “We put him in the middle of our press break (in the fourth quarter) so we could get the ball to him.” Zach Toussaint thought that helped him with either finding his own shots or setting up others. “We got in the flow and started hitting shots,” Frazier said. “And we hit our free throws. Richmond’s a big rival. It kind of amped up the intensity a little bit. The way they play defense kind of fits my strength, so I got to drive to the basket a lot.” Mike Toussaint thought Frazier’s game would serve the Skyhawks well against R-B’s 1-2-2 full-court pressure. When Johnsburg beat the press, Frazier was able to attack the basket.

“Brody’s probably the most athletic kid on the team,” Mike Toussaint said. “This just played to his strength, it’s a wide-open game, he’s a strong kid. He’s never lacking for confidence.” R-B opened each half with big runs, but Johnsburg answered. Rockets coach Brandon Creason felt the second-quarter foul trouble hindered his team, particularly with forwards Brady Gibson and Shane Byrne. “When our starting five was allowed to play, we were pretty solid,” Creason said. “There were circumstances that did not allow us to keep them on the floor. We had to play guys in different positions than they’re used to because of fouls.” R-B’s Jake Kaufman scored 23 points and hit two late 3s as the Rockets tried to fight back without Bayer. Kaufman’s 3 with 49 seconds remaining cut the lead to 71-66, the closest R-B got. “One great thing about our team is when teams make runs, we always find a way to bounce back,” Zach Toussaint said. “That’s what makes our team so special. We fight, we get every loose ball and we can hit shots.”

the first-place Skyhawks and gives coach Brad Frey a unique and versatile player. On Jan. 5, the 5-9 guard/forward handed out three assists and hauled in 10 rebounds in the team’s win over Marengo. Although her twin sister, Morgan, does a little bit more scoring (9.9 points a game against 6.2 points a game), Megan Madsen leads the team in rebounds (153 total/8.1 a game) and assists (50/2.6). Morgan Madsen is only two rebounds behind her sister with 151. “Megan Madsen is the best point-forward I’ve seen in high school,” Frey said. “She always finds the girl that’s wide open. You always preach about inside-out, kicking those balls out, and she’s one of the best at it.” Since a 1-3 start to the season, Johnsburg has gone 13-2. New year, new attitude: Crystal Lake South has come away with arguably two of the biggest upsets of the new year among local teams, beating Cary-Grove and McHenry in back-to-back games. The victories have put the Gators squarely into the picture of potential FVC champions, although there is still plenty of work to do for all teams. South, McHenry, Cary-Grove and Hampshire all sit at 5-3 in the FVC, while Jacobs is 4-3. Huntley, the winner of the past three FVC Valley titles, is the leader at 6-1. The past two years, South finished second to Huntley in the FVC Valley. The two teams have

yet to play against each other this season, with their first matchup coming Jan. 23. “This gives us a lot of confidence going into the rest of our conference season,” senior Annika Sevcik said after beating C-G. “It gives us a lot of extra motivation to try and win the (conference) title because it’s still up in the air.” South followed its win against C-G with a dramatic win against McHenry, coming all the way back from a 16-2 deficit after the first quarter to climb into a four-team tie for second place.

Big Ten for the first time since 1997-98, when they finished 1-15 in the conference. What’s more, their only wins since mid-December are against Youngstown State and UNC-Asheville. Iowa 83, No. 17 Purdue 78: At Iowa City, Iowa, Purdue knew the Hawkeyes would be looking for payback after it blasted Iowa in the Big Ten opener. The Hawkeyes got back at the Boilermakers by beating them at their own game. Peter Jok scored 29 points with eight assists and six rebounds, and Iowa rallied from a nine-point halftime deficit to beat Purdue. “When you go through what we went through down there, you have to learn from it,” Iowa coach Fran McCaffery

said of his young team’s 89-67 loss on Dec. 28. “You grow, and you figure it out.” Freshman Tyler Cook had 16 points for the Hawkeyes (11-7, 3-2), who beat a ranked team at home for the second time this season – this time by outrebounding the bigger Boilermakers 35-28 and shooting 67 percent in the second half. Caleb Swanigan led Purdue (14-4, 3-2) with 17 points. No. 20 Notre Dame 67, Miami 62: At Coral Gables, Florida, the Fighting Irish were at their best down the stretch again, which is why they’re still unbeaten in the Atlantic Coast Conference. V.J. Beachem sank the go-ahead basket and made the clinching steal as Notre Dame rallied from a four-point

deficit in the final 21/2 minutes to beat Miami. The Fighting Irish (15-2, 4-0) outscored Miami, 10-1, down the stretch to earn their sixth straight victory. Their four league wins have been by a total of 18 points. “Our fan base is all on heart medication,” coach Mike Brey said. “I loved our mental toughness again to finish.” A sellout crowd failed to rattle the Irish, who snapped Miami’s 21-game home winning streak. The Hurricanes (11-4, 1-2) led 61-57 with 2:30 left before Notre Dame rallied. Illinois-Chicago 59, Cleveland St. 54: At Cleveland, Godwin Boahen scored seven of 10 points during a 24-7 second-half run to help Illinois-Chicago beat Cleveland State.

Boahen made two layups and a 3-pointer, Dominique Matthews scored six of his 11 points, and Tarkus Ferguson added five of his six points during the stretch. Clint Robinson also scored 11 points for UIC (9-8, 2-2 Horizon League). Rob Edwards had 13 points to lead Cleveland State (5-12, 1-4).

PISCATAWAY, N.J. – In a game featuring a program reaping the benefits of a rebuild against a program resetting after hitting rock bottom, it was a tale of two halves. Vic Law scored a game-high 21 points, Scottie Lindsey added 14, and Isiah Brown came off the bench to score 11 to lead Northwestern past Rutgers, 69-60, Thursday night. Rutgers (11-7, 0-5 Big Ten) jumped out to a 7-0 lead and led, 28-19, with 2:04 left in the half before Northwestern (144, 3-2) was able to cut it to 28-25 at the break. Northwestern went on a 6-0 run early in the second half to take its first lead of the game, 33-32. The Wildcats’ largest lead was 15 at 62-47 with 2:52 to play.

8 KNICKS 104, BULLS 89

Unapologetic Rose gives Knicks lift By JOE COWLEY

KNICKS 104, BULLS 89 NEW YORK – Derrick Rose still was haunting his old team. Facing the Bulls for the second time since an offseason trade, Rose scored 17 points, helping the Knicks to a 104-89 win Thursday at Madison Square Garden. Unfortunately for Rose, he also is haunting his current team. The one-time Chicago Simeon graduate was four days removed from going AWOL before New York’s Monday night game with New Orleans, flying back to Chicago because of “a family issue,” but doing so without notifying the team or asking permission. Rose eventually was tracked down, but not before Knicks officials sent a staff member to his New York apartment to make sure he wasn’t in serious trouble. Rose returned the next day, apologized to his coaches and teammates, took the undisclosed fine, and was right back in the starting lineup for the slumping Knicks, but according to New York reports, he could have done obvious harm in any chance he had in re-signing with New York entering free agency this summer. In Rose’s world, however, obvious tends to elude him. “When I was in the room, I felt like they understood where I was coming

The Knicks’ Derrick Rose drives past the Bulls’ Paul Zipser as teammate Joakim Noah (13) and the Bulls’ Robin Lopez (8) watch during the first half Thursday in New York. from,” Rose said when asked whether he might have burnt his New York bridge for an extension. “I hope one incident didn’t change their mind. Who knows? This is a business. If it was to happen, I still would want to play the way I normally know how to play wherever I’m at.” Rose also said he didn’t regret what he did and wouldn’t change a thing. “Family over everything,” Rose said. Maybe so, but his timing to put fam-

ily over even a phone call to his bosses couldn’t have been worse, especially with Rose reportedly seeking a max contract this offseason, which would pay him close to $150 million over five years. Rose, however, didn’t feel like he damaged his standing around the league, either. “Like who?” he replied, when asked whether that was a concern. “With me missing one day and just leaving? You probably have to ask them.’’

One thing Rose did clear up? He basically stopped dunking with the Bulls, even when his surgically repaired knees were better, and again is playing above the rim with New York. The explanation? “When you’re in here, the fans, the excitement in the building, it makes you feel young again,” Rose said. So there’s that. Playing the Bulls (19-21) obviously has that effect on him, as well, with Rose scoring 15 in the first meeting, and then what he did in the rematch. However, there was much less resistance Thursday, with the Bulls without Jimmy Butler, Nikola Mirotic and Denzel Valentine because of flu-like symptoms.


Hoiberg sees role for Rondo with 2nd unit By JOE COWLEY NEW YORK – Finally, some clarity for Rajon Rondo. At least for the time being while the flu-bug is running rampant through the Bulls’ locker room. According to coach Fred Hoiberg on Thursday, Rondo’s role has gone from permanent fixture on the bench, as he was for 5½ games, to now the lead point guard with the second unit, as he was again against the Knicks. Call it progress. “I talked to him about the lift and the spark that he gave us [Tuesday] with the energy and the pace, the push that he had with that second unit,” Hoiberg said of the decision. The Rondo drama has been front and center the past two weeks, after the decision was made to take one of their prized

offseason free-agent signings and bench him after a poor first half against Indiana last month. It came with little explanation as far as Rondo was concerned, and vague answers from the Bulls. Without Dwyane Wade, Jimmy Butler and Nikola Mirotic against the Wizards to start this road trip, however, Hoiberg had little Rajon Rondo choice but to go back to Rondo. Now the hope is Rondo will remain a better fit with the reserves, with Michael Carter-Williams still starting. Rondo did get the call early on in the game against New York, but that was only because of foul trouble for Carter-Williams. “Yeah, that’s something that we thought a lot about is getting him in

there with that second group,” Hoiberg said. More impressive has been the way Rondo has handled all the drama, especially considering his reputation of turning quickly on organizations and coaching staffs. If anything, Rondo looks more like a player who was deceived about his role since signing with the Bulls. “I judge people by what I see of them,’’ Wade said of Rondo compared to his reputation. “I can’t judge someone by what someone has said or written. What I knew of Rondo, playing against him, was that he’s a competitor. We had to go against each other in the Eastern Conference finals, and when I signed here I knew he was a competitor and I wanted to play with guys like that. “Like I told you guys multiple times, he’s been unbelievable, a true professional, a great teammate. That’s all I can

judge him off of.”

Not backing down: Denzel Valentine was well aware of John Wall’s criticism of the Bulls rookie, and the fact that Wall didn’t like a dance Valentine did after hitting a 3-pointer Tuesday. Wall explained it as Valentine “woke up a giant” after that moment, but Valentine had a different take on it. “Why wasn’t he playing like that the whole night, you know what I’m saying?” Valentine said. “He’s not literally a monster, he’s a human. He should be out there competing the whole game. ‘’I play how I play. I’m not going to stop how I play.” Outbreak: Mirotic and Butler remained in Chicago, but the hope was that Butler would be able to work out Friday at the Advocate Center. Valentine had to leave the arena early Thursday, as he also was hit with the flu and unavailable to play.



First baseman doesn’t fear letdown

• Friday, January 13, 2017

For decades, the Cubs learned the hard way that it took more than Gabby Hartnett, Phil Cavarretta or Sammy Sosa – more than even Ryne Sandberg or Ernie Banks. Could it be that fixing what ailed a punch-line franchise was more about Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmell and the cast of “Saturday Night Live” all along? Anthony Rizzo “Perks.” That’s what Cubs All-Star Anthony Rizzo called it Thursday on the eve of a Cubs Convention that threatens to break all previous density, insanity and sound barriers for the event. “It’s amazing,” Rizzo said. And barely two months after the Cubs beat Cleveland in a wild Game 7 for their first World Series championship in 108 years, Rizzo suggested the national accolades and worldwide recognition that followed – he was recognized by a fan while vacationing in Thailand – could be the previously unspoken key to that “foundation for sustained success.” Make no mistake: The man who predicted a division title and playoff run in 2015 after a last-place 2014 refused to predict an outcome for 2017. But he called this team better than the 2016 version and sounded even more confident in the reason he fears no championship hangover or letdown. “I think where we’re at, you want more,” he said. “Success is very addicting.” Not to mention the spoils that included guest appearances for many of the players and manager on about every TV talk show they desired – including Rizzo, Dexter Fowler and David Ross twerking and singing with Bill Murray on “Saturday Night Live.” “You just want to keep it going,” Rizzo said. “All the perks that have come this year have been amazing after you win. You see guys (on other teams) after they win championships go on a couple talk shows. We had probably 20 guys on different talk shows, and “Saturday Night Live” – guys just doing ev-

erything and branching out. “It’s amazing. It’s good for baseball. And you want more. When I work out now, it’s: ‘How are you going to get that going [again]?’ It’s easy. I want to do it again. I think everyone else will have that mentality, as well.” If Rizzo was impressed by the downtown parade in November and the perks that followed over the winter, wait until he gets a load of what might be the most unwieldy Cubs Convention in the 32-year history of professional sports’ oldest fan fest. In the five years since the three-day event moved to the Sheraton Grand Chicago, this year’s convention sold out quickest. And the anticipated demand was so high the Cubs for the first time have spread some of the event across the street to the Loews Chicago – almost half the activities at the second hotel. “I really can’t see it any crazier than it was last year,” Rizzo said. “But then, again, I couldn’t picture the parade being the way it was. So, we’ll see. You can only fit so many people in that room. But it’ll be fun.” All the returning players from the World Series roster, plus the retired Ross, are expected to attend the festivities, which begin with Friday night’s opening ceremonies. As always, the roster of former players includes an All-Star cast, including Hall of Famers Billy Williams, Fergie Jenkins and Sandberg, along with Randy Hundley, Kerry Wood, Ryan Dempster, Bill Madlock, Steve Trout, Lee Smith, Ted Lilly, Jody Davis and Gary Matthews. A weekend of championship celebration continues Monday with a trip to the White House for a presidential reception. But Rizzo already is looking ahead. For the next one. “Last year, we were the team to beat, and we’re going to be the team to beat this year,” he said. “So, we’ve got to go in there with the mentality of getting it on from the first day of spring until the last day. “I think the experience we gained from getting swept by the Mets (in 2015) to playing in Game 7 in one of the best World Series ever [means] anything that’s thrown at us we’ll be able to handle.”

Chargers bolt San Diego for LA By BERNIE WILSON The Associated Press

SAN DIEGO – Chargers fans knew for several years that this dreaded day could be coming, that their beloved NFL team might move up the freeway to tap the perceived riches of Los Angeles. That didn’t make it any easier Thursday, when the San Diego Chargers ceased to exist after 56 seasons. They’re now the Los Angeles Chargers, set to join the recently relocated Rams to give the nation’s second-largest media market two NFL teams for the first time since 1994. Team chairman Dean Spanos, who tried to move to LA a year earlier, announced the move to his employees at a morning meeting at Chargers Park. At the same time, the team posted a letter on its Twitter account, which was rebranded as the Los Angeles Chargers. Just like that, decades worth of Sunday afternoons spent cheering original AFL stars Lance Alworth and Keith Lincoln; Air Coryell guys such as Dan Fouts, Kellen Winslow and Charlie Joiner; and on through to Junior Seau and LaDainian Tomlinson, became even more distant – and now bittersweet – memories. The Chargers were born in Los Angeles in 1960 and were moved to San Diego the following year by Barron

Chargers fan Joseph Macrae holds up a sign in front of the Chargers’ headquarters Thursday in San Diego after the team announced that it will move to Los Angeles. Hilton. They gave San Diego a unique identity, with the distinctive lightning bolt logo on their helmets and powder blue jerseys. Alworth, known as “Bambi,” and Keith Lincoln, the “Moose of the Palouse,” helped deliver the 1963 AFL title, the city’s only major championship. In a statement, Spanos lauded the

passion of the fans. “But today, we turn the page and begin an exciting new era as the Los Angeles Chargers,” he said. In return, fans lashed out at the family that bought the team in 1984. As Spanos was driven to the airport to fly to Los Angeles to meet with civic officials, Chuck Homenick got close to

the SUV and yelled an obscenity. Homenick said Spanos’ decision was “pretty horrible. Born and raised here in San Diego and been going to these games, and just can’t believe they’re leaving,” Homenick said. “I knew the decision was coming up soon and I was hoping they were going to stay. Business decision, but when it comes to money vs. fan support and loyalty, they’re not going to have much fan support up in LA.” Joseph MacRae held a sign that read, “Alex Spanos would never leave SD! You failed us Dean.” Chargers owner Alex Spanos turned over control to son Dean years ago. “It’s really a dark day in San Diego sports history,” said MacRae, 30, who wore a Chargers jacket. He said he’d been going to Chargers games since he was 7. “That’s what it was all about, September through December, football on Sundays.” Throughout the day, more fans gathered at Chargers Park. Many tossed jerseys, hats and shirts onto a growing pile in the parking lot. Someone tossed a helmet onto the pile and began smashing it with a piece of wood. While many fans still supported the team despite several seasons of lackluster performances, they were angry at Spanos for his scorched-earth tactics the past two years.


Rams make McVay youngest head coach in NFL history The ASSOCIATED PRESS LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles Rams have made Sean McVay the youngest head coach in NFL history. The Rams on Thursday hired McVay, who turns 31 years old Jan. 24. The Washington Redskins’ offensive coordinator replaces Jeff Fisher, who was fired 13 games into the Rams’ homecoming season in Los Angeles, and interim head coach John Fassel. The Rams finished 4-12 in their 13th consecutive nonwinning season. “The accomplishments and success that he has had in less than a decade in our league are impressive,” Rams owner Stan Kroenke said in a statement. “We are confident in his vision to make this team a consistent winner and we will all continue to work together to achieve our ultimate goal, bringing a Rams Super Bowl championship home to Los Angeles.” McVay spent the past three seasons as Jay Gruden’s offensive coordinator

with the Redskins. He has been an assistant since 2010 in Washington, where he worked with Gruden and Bill Callahan to build a prolific offense led by quarterback Kirk Cousins. McVay’s most important task is likely to be the transformation of No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff into a star after his rough rook- Sean McVay ie campaign behind a struggling offensive line. “Really happy for Sean McVay!” Cousins tweeted. The Rams made the eye-catching move on the same day that the Chargers announced their relocation to Los Angeles to share the Rams’ $2.6 billion stadium. The Chargers still are without a coach, and the Rams grabbed some of their headlines by snagging one of the most interesting names on the coaching market. “I am incredibly honored by this op-

portunity,” McVay said in a statement, thanking Kroenke and Rams chief operating officer Kevin Demoff. “Collectively, we are committed to building a championship-caliber team, and I’m excited to start that process and make our fans proud.”

Packers CB Rollins practices again:

At Green Bay, Wisconsin, cornerback Quinten Rollins practiced for a second straight day for the Green Bay Packers, a sign that their secondary could be getting closer to full strength ahead of the divisional-round playoff game Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. Rollins missed last week’s wild-card win over the New York Giants. He is recovering from a neck injury while also being monitored in the NFL’s concussion protocol after getting hurt two weeks ago in Detroit. Rollins was limited Thursday. He has played in 13 games this season, making 10 starts. The secondary is coming off a successful outing against the Giants af-

ter keeping the receiving trio of Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard and Victor Cruz out of the end zone. LaDarius Gunter, a second-year player like Rollins, drew the assignment of defending Beckham. The Giants’ star receiver was held to four catches for 28 yards on 11 targets. Beckham and other receivers also were plagued by drops. Gunter likely would match up against Cowboys star receiver Dez Bryant on Sunday. Bryant missed the teams’ meeting in October at Lambeau Field, a 30-16 Cowboys win, with a knee injury. Also Thursday, receiver Jeff Janis returned to practice after missing one day with a quadriceps problem. He was limited. The speedy Janis is a mainstay on special teams, although he might need to play more offense against Dallas if top receiver Jordy Nelson isn’t available. As expected, Nelson (ribs) missed practice again Thursday to focus on rehab.

Smart move for NFL: 2nd Chicago franchise I don’t understand the obsession NFL owners have with moving their teams to Los Angeles. Don’t they know that’s been tried before? The Rams moved to L.A. this season and already are noticing that people aren’t showing up to their games. The team was VIEWS getting better TV ratings this Eric year in the Olson city it left, St. Louis, than in its new home market of Los Angeles. If the Chargers were smart, they wouldn’t be lining up to settle in the land of empty seats. They’d be trying to bring their team to Illinois. If there’s a city in America that should have two NFL teams and doesn’t, it’s Chicago. Sure, Chicago is a Bears town and has been since the Cardinals left after the 1959 season. (Actually, it was a Bears town long before then, hence the Cardinals’ departure.) But look at the 3-13 season Bears fans have just endured. When the Bears were getting crushed in a nearly unwatchable, meaningless game against a mediocre Washington team in Week 16, wouldn’t it have been

a retractable roof, it’s safe to say that they probably would have an identity distinctly different from the Bears we know and love. The demand for live football well outstrips the supply in the Chicago market. The seating capacity at the remodeled Soldier Field is only 61,500, making it one of the smallest stadiums in the league serving one of the country’s biggest cities. (By comparison, the capacity of the Green Bay Packers’ Lambeau Field is 80,735.) Put a second NFL team in Chicago, or its suburbs, and it would have a home for as long as it cared to stay. Maybe build a stadium with a retractable roof, something where we could bring a Super Bowl to Illinois for the first time ever.
