Tales from the express lines at the supermarket I thought the word “express” meant fast, like Pony Express fast, where small, wiry cowboys rode baby horses across the Great Plains in the Old West’s version of priority mail. I picture the sinewy Pony Express rider on his mission somewhere between St. Joe and Sacramento, learning forward in the saddle, the brim of his hat flattened by the wind, his face contorted in stony grittiness, his steed underneath him stretched from nose to tail in a flurry of motion and speed, it’s little pony legs pulsing like pistons. Yep, that’s what I think of when I see the word, “express.” So, when the food store people started adding express lines, my vision of checkout had me flying through the line like a small, wiry shopper riding a silvery mini shopping cart, it’s little rollers spinning like Ferris wheels in a twister, my hands white-knuckled from desperately gripping the handle and my cheeks rosy from the windage. Um, didn’t happen. No even close. You could put on a cowboy hat and chaps, but you ain’t ever movin’ through that line like a sprintin’ pinto carryin’ a love letter, pardner. While express lines are a good concept, they often utterly fail to live up to their name. There are some reasons for that … First of all, it’s that “15 Items or Less” sign. Besides the fact that it is not grammatically correct (“15 Items or Fewer”), there is something wide-eyedly optimistic about putting up a sign and expecting people to actually obey it. Here’s what people actually see when they read this sign: • 15 Items or Less … For everyone else but you, of course. • 15 Items or Less … Or 20, 30, 40 or whatever you have. • 15 Items or Less … Yeah, like we’re really going to enforce this. Surely all of us have experienced getting behind an “Express Line Over-the-Limiter.” You silently count what’s in their cart and breathlessly whisper to yourself, “Oh my goodness … she’s got 23 items! That’s … um … eight items over the limit!” You feverishly contemplate your next move. Maybe you should just mention it to her … “Excuse me, ma’am, but you seem to be eight items over the limit for the Express Line.” “And I think you are several words over the limit in the ‘It’s none of your business’ line.” OK. That’s not a good idea. Maybe you

WHERE IT’S AT

JUST HUMOR ME Michael Penkava should just wonder out loud and hope she hears you … “Boy, I’m glad I only have 14 items … 15’s the limit in this line.” (No reaction) “Geesh, this Express Line of 15 items or less is awesome!” (No reaction) “Golly, I wonder what they do if you’re over the limit in this line?” “Mister, I wonder what they’d do if I accidentally ran you over with my cart?” OK again. Maybe you should just tell the cashier … “Excuse me, Mrs. Cashier … this lady here is over the limit.” “Oh, thank you. sir. Ma’am, it’s OK. Men in Express Lines are like caged wildebeests. Sir, why don’t you read a magazine from the rack. There’s an interesting story I know you’d love about a man finding a mini-mermaid in his tuna sandwich.” “Really … where?” Oh, for an “Over-the-Limiter” Hotline app, or, even better, a warning buzzer on the scanner when someone has reached the limit … “BUZZZZZZZZZ!” “What was that?” “Oh, Ma’am, that’s the ‘Express Line Limit Violation Alarm.” “What does that mean?” “It means you’ve reached your limit of checkout items in this line.” “But I still have more.” “I can see that. What you can do is pay for these 15 items and go back in line and pay for 15 more. You actually can do that as many times as you want until you’ve checked out everything.” “Huh?” Wildebeest Man behind lady raises arms in victory cry, “GRRRWAAAAARGGGH!”

• Michael Penkava taught a bunch of kids and wrote a bunch of stuff. He actually read the story about the mini-mermaid sandwich. The man who experienced this was quoted as saying, “I asked for extra mayo and got this.” He can be reached at mikepenkava@comcast.net.

Mary Ulery uses the MyFitnessPal app to record nutrition label information on a package of fresh salmon as her husband, Randy, cuts vegetables while preparing a meal in their Lake in the Hills home. Ulery lost a total of 87 pounds – 60 with the Orbera weight-loss balloon procedure and 27 after it was removed. She said she would not have been able to do everything she’s done so far without the support of her husband and children.

Lake in the Hills resident reflects on 87-pound weight loss, offers advice By JORDYN REILAND

jreiland@shawmedia.com LAKE IN THE HILLS – On Thanksgiving 2015, Mary Ulery was in Southern California watching on the sidelines as her son ran a 5K race. Just one year later, Ulery’s family were the ones cheering her on at the finish line. The Lake in the Hills resident, who then weighed more than 235 pounds, decided in 2015 just before the Christmas holiday to make a change and lose the weight, as many others do at this time of year.

“For me, I just lost my balance in life. I stepped on the scale and said, ‘You better do something,’ ” she said, now down 87 pounds. To get the process in motion, Ulery met with Amir Heydari, medical director of the Centegra Weight-Loss Surgery Center, and shortly thereafter received the Orbera weight-loss balloon procedure. She was mildly sedated and doctors placed a thin, deflated balloon into her stomach that was filled with saline until it expanded to the size of a grapefruit.

County Board chairman moving forward with anti-tax referendum By KEVIN P. CRAVER

kcraver@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – McHenry County Board Chairman Jack Franks is moving forward with putting an advisory property tax freeze referendum question to voters, but backing off a plan to ask for two more aimed at government consolidation. Franks, D-Marengo, will ask board members Tuesday night to vote to put a nonbinding question on the April 4 ballot asking whether local governments should be required to hold a referendum to increase their levies by any amount. But he will not be asking for votes on advisory referendums on eliminating the county recorder’s office and halving the size of the County Board, which he proposed Thursday at the end of the board’s Committee of the Whole meeting. Instead, he will form an ad-hoc Committee on Government Structure and Consolidation to pave the way for binding referendums that could appear on 2018 election ballots, as well as explore other ways to consolidate and reduce government. Besides having differing opinions on how much the board should be shrunk, as voters overwhelmingly approved in a Nov. 8 advisory question, several members objected to being presented with last-minute referendums that would not go through committee. Tuesday’s board meeting also is the last day under state law for local governments to put referendums on the April 4 ballot. Franks said a special committee will make sure the time is taken to get it right. “I heard the board loud and clear on Thursday, and given their concerns, I be-

“To me, it seems like an additional cost to the county to do something we already know the people support – smaller government and eliminating this (county recorder) position.” Joe Tirio

McHenry County recorder lieve the specifics on County Board structure and reform should be debated further,” said Franks, who ran on a platform that included going from 24 members in

six districts to 12, single-member districts. A bill to permanently freeze property taxes statewide, requiring any increase requested by a taxing body to go to a referendum, passed the Illinois House this week but did not have time for a Senate vote because of the end of the legislative session. Two bills to try again already have been filed in the House since Wednesday’s start of the new General Assembly. “There’s no reason that McHenry County has to wait for the state,” Franks said. “I campaigned on cutting 10 percent of the (county’s) property tax levy. We need to send a very strong message to all the taxing bodies that this is what the citizens want.” New Republican county Recorder Joe Tirio ran on the platform of asking voters to abolish his office altogether and merge it with the county clerk’s office, as is done in most Illinois counties. He said Friday that he did not understand what message an advisory referendum would have given that his election several months ago did not. “To me, it seems like an additional cost to the county to do something we already know the people support – smaller government and eliminating this position,” Tirio said. The McHenry County Electoral Board on Friday voted to remove a property tax freeze question from the ballot that was filed by new state Rep. Allen Skillicorn, R-East Dundee. His petition contained only 92 signatures, far short of the 7,566 required to get a countywide referendum on the ballot. Franks’ decision to pursue a similar referendum was independent of Skillicorn’s.

Zion man found guilty of drug-induced homicide By JORDYN REILAND

jreiland@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – Jurors found a Zion man guilty on Friday of the drug-induced homicide of 21-year-old Danielle Barzyk. Jurors found that James F. Linder sold more than one gram of heroin to Barzyk’s boyfriend, Cody N. Hillier, on Jan. 30, 2015, in Zion. The couple returned to Algonquin and used the drugs at least three times, and just after 1 a.m. Barzyk told Hillier she was having trouble breathing and needed medical attention. Hillier and Barzyk met at a local rehabilitation facility in July 2014 and started dating. Hillier, who took the stand this week, said he and Barzyk relapsed in November 2014 and continued daily usage. When police arrived at the scene, they asked Hillier whether Barzyk had taken anything, and he said she was having an asthma attack. He later told responding officers and emergency personnel that she had taken Vicodin. Barzyk was taken to Advocate Sherman Hospital in Elgin, where she was pronounced dead. Hillier agreed to work with the North Central Narcotics Task force and bought additional heroin from Linder in a controlled narcotics transaction at a Wal-Mart in Zion. Linder was pulled over after the alleged drug deal, and officers located the money Hillier was given to buy the drugs, his wallet, a cellphone and additional cash. Linder was arrested and has since been held in the McHenry County Jail. Hillier previously pleaded guilty in May to unlawful possession and delivery of a controlled substance in this case and was sentenced to probation. He was rearrested in October after violating the terms of his probation. The jury began deliberations shortly before 11:30 a.m. Friday and returned with a verdict about two hours later. During closing arguments, Assistant State’s Attorney Randi Freese asked the jury to hold the defendant accountable. “He profited and preyed on the addiction and disease of Danielle and Cody,” Freese said. Freese said prosecutors proved their case beyond a reasonable doubt because they were able to show that Linder knowingly delivered heroin to Hillier, that the heroin was at least one gram or more, that Barzyk inhaled the heroin

“He profited and preyed on the addiction and disease of Danielle and Cody. ... What happened to Danielle could have just as easily happened to Cody. They both used the heroin. … One died; one lived.” Randi Freese, McHenry County assistant state’s attorney

Message and data rates apply. and that Barzyk died as a result of the inhalation. Freese said the most convincing evidence in the case against Linder came from his cellphone, which was taken from the defendant when he was arrested. The text messages documented conversations between Hillier and Linder regarding the two heroin purchases. There also were recorded phone calls between the two from Jan. 31, 2015, when Hillier was working with undercover officers. Freese said there was no doubt that Barzyk died of a heroin overdose based on testimony from two forensic pathologists who took the stand this week. “What happened to Danielle could have just as easily happened to Cody. They both used the heroin. … One died; one lived,” Freese said. Mitra Kalelkar and Hillary McElligott, who testified for the prosecution and defense, respectively, generally agreed Barzyk’s primary cause of death was a narcotics overdose. Kalelkar conducted Barzyk’s autopsy days after she died and examined a toxicology report prepared when coming to her conclusion of how Barzyk died. She said Barzyk’s lungs were heavier than normal from a significant amount of fluid and congestion, something she commonly sees in patients who overdose or drown. She also said she was aware of Barzyk’s history of asthma, but did not believe it was what caused her death.

Hank Sugden, Linder’s attorney, said in closing arguments that prosecutors did not prove Linder delivered heroin to Hillier nor did they prove Barzyk died of a heroin overdose. Sugden said Barzyk and Hillier were both addicts who were aware of the danger of drugs. Sugden said, referencing Freese’s prior statement, that Hillier lived and Barzyk died not because she overdosed but because of the fact that she had an asthma attack. That was the major difference between the two, he said. McElligott said while she agreed the primary cause of death was related to a heroin overdose, she believed asthma was a major contributing factor. She said someone who is overdosing will appear as though they are falling asleep or passing out, but someone experiencing a severe asthma attack is more likely to gasp for air and be aware they are not breathing properly. Sugden also said prosecutors were unable to prove the heroin sold Jan. 30 was the same as the heroin sold Jan. 31, and could have done so through further testing. In response to Sugden’s statement about quality control, Assistant State’s Attorney John Gibbons said it would have been nearly impossible to do comparative testing because heroin dealers almost always have different product. He said that fact is proven when Linder told Hillier in a recorded phone call that he didn’t have the same stuff as Jan. 30 but had different product he could sell to him. Linder faces 15 to 30 years in prison. Based on previous convictions, he could receive an extended sentence that would result in 30 to 60 years in prison. He will remain in the McHenry County Jail without bond until his sentencing Feb. 24.

Petition had only 1.2 percent of signatures required by law to appear on ballot By KEVIN P. CRAVER

kcraver@shawmedia.com

Norm Vinton, assistant state’s attorney law must be followed. The Electoral Board, which is convened to hear petition objections, is made up of County Clerk Mary McClellan and one representative each from the offices of state’s attorney and circuit clerk. “Although I find your petition admirable, it is sorely lacking in the number of required signatures,” Assistant State’s Attorney Norm Vinton told Skillicorn just before the vote. Chief Deputy Circuit Clerk Robin Shetley represented the circuit clerk’s office. The nonbinding referendum sought to ask voters whether local governments should be required to ask voter permission before raising taxes by any amount. In McHenry County, where non-home rule governments are under the tax cap, local taxing bodies are automatically entitled to collect an increase over their previous year’s extension equal to either the rate of inflation or 5 percent, whichever is smaller.

Skillicorn, who was sworn in to represent the 66th Illinois House District on Wednesday, unsuccessfully argued that Fitzgerald’s objection constituted a prohibited political activity for county government employees under the county Ethics Ordinance. He also alleged that her objection did not clearly spell out an intent as required by state law. “No other objections have been made against this referendum except by a [county] clerk employee,” Skillicorn said in a statement. “Let the voters decide if property taxes should be frozen at ballot box [sic], not in a back room like the clerk’s office.” Attorney Joe Gottemoller, who represented Fitzgerald at the hearing, said she had proper and ethical legal standing as a county voter. Gottemoller is an elected member of the County Board. “This [objection] is not a statement as to whether or not this referendum itself is a good idea or a bad idea,” Gottemoller told the election board. “This is

The McHenry County Electoral Board voted Friday, 3-0, to uphold an objection to an advisory anti-tax referendum and remove it from the April 4 ballot. a question of whether the rules were followed to put this referendum on.” But McHenry County voters may yet get the chance to weigh in on the question. County Board Chairman Jack Franks, D-Marengo, told members Thursday that he would ask for a board vote to put an advisory property tax freeze question on the ballot. His move was independent of Skillicorn’s effort and the objection mounted. State law for a referendum question requires a minimum number of signatures equal to 8 percent of the number of voters who cast ballots in the last gubernatorial election. At least two bills have already been filed in the Illinois House since Wednesday’s start of the new legislative session to impose a statewide property tax freeze – Skillicorn is chief co-sponsor on both. A last-ditch attempt in the final days of the previous session cleared the House but did not have the time for a Senate vote.

WOODSTOCK – McHenry County election officials tossed an advisory property tax freeze referendum off the April 4 ballot for having far from the required number of signatures. In a 3-0 vote Friday afternoon, the Electoral Board upheld an objection by Chief Deputy County Clerk Linda Fitzgerald that the petition filed by state Rep. Allen Skillicorn does not meet Allen guidelines set by state Skillicorn law. Skillicorn’s petition had only 92 signatures, or 1.2 percent of the 7,566 required to get a countywide referendum on the ballot. The objection further challenged 26 of the signatures. His news release upon filing the petition in McHenry and Kane counties said he had “thousands” of signatures – his Kane County petition only had 302 of the more than 8,600 required. A similar objection has been filed in Kane County as well. While board members lauded the referendum’s intent, they said election

“Although I find your petition admirable, it is sorely lacking in the number of required signatures.”

“There’s not a better time, because once you make up your mind, do it. Whether it’s a traditional New Year’s resolution or whenever that first step … you’ll be glad you did.”

Continued from page A3 The balloon, which was in her stomach for six months, curbed her appetite and promoted weight loss. The minimally invasive outpatient procedure received U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval in September 2015. The Orbera balloon is intended for adults who have a body mass index of 30 to 40 and who have been unable to lose weight through diet and exercise. After the balloon was removed, Ulery worked with Centegra’s team to learn about portion control, establish an exercise routine and find the support necessary to maintain long-term weight loss. Betsy Felde, a registered dietitian and licensed dietitian nutritionist at the Centegra Weight-Loss Surgery Center, worked with Ulery after her procedure for the next year. The two met at least once a month to discuss setting goals and overall nutrition. Felde said the reason Ulery has been so successful is because she did everything she needed to do, whether it was journaling her food, exercising regularly or meeting her goals. She said what can go wrong for people who set large goals in the new year or around the hol-

Mary Ulery measures a 4-ounce portion of salmon as she prepares lunch in her Lake in the Hills home. Ulery, who weighed more than 235 pounds, decided in 2015 just before Christmas to make a change and lose the weight. idays to lose weight is they try to do too much at one time. “You have to take one step at a time, one thing at a time,” Felde said. Ulery said one of the things she most appreciated about the procedure is it allowed for portion control. She said instead of only eating certain things, she

was able to eat “normal food” in moderation and was able to better understand how food fit into everyday life. Ulery lost a total of 87 pounds – 60 with the balloon and 27 after it was removed. She said she would not have been able to do everything she’s done so far without the support of her husband

and children. Ulery said people often asked her why she would want to start her weight loss journey right before the holidays and she told them there was no better time than the present. “There’s not a better time, because once you make up your mind, do it,” she said. “Whether it’s a traditional New Year’s resolution or whenever that first step … you’ll be glad you did.” Ulery said her goals are to keep the weight off, stay healthy and continue to be active and enjoy her life. “I never thought I would be one of those people who said, ‘I haven’t been to the gym in three days. I need to get there,’ ” she said, laughing. “If I can inspire one person, then I am happy to do that.”

Heartland Blood Centers representatives said the center is in critical need of several blood types to meet the demands of hospitals in northern Illinois and northwest Indiana. As of Friday morning, officials at Heartland Blood Centers are reporting less than a one-day supply of O+, O-, B+ and B-, with the potential to reach critical levels on all other types. Patient traumas, surgeries, weather and illness have had a critical effect on patient blood inventory needs. The closest Heartland Blood Center is at 6296 Northwest Highway in Crystal Lake. “We have made frequent requests this week to all of our regular donors asking them to help,” said Amy Smith, director of donor recruitment at Heartland Blood Centers. “The situation is now critical, and we are in need of all healthy and eligible donors to roll up their sleeves and give blood in the next 48 hours. “Critical is not a term we take lightly, the need is real. As the largest provider of blood in the Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana area, we must be sure transfusions are ready and available for patients in the 74 hospitals we serve.” Heartland has increased capacity to allow for more flexible scheduling at any of 13 donor centers or mobile blood drives. All donors will receive a $10 Noodles & Co. coupon, compliments of Noodles & Co. Call 800-786-4483, visit www.heartlandbc.org or text APPT to 444-999 to schedule.

‘Exorcist’ author William Peter Blatty dead at 89 By HILLEL ITALIE

The Associated Press NEW YORK – Novelist and filmmaker William Peter Blatty, a former Jesuit school valedictorian who conjured a tale of demonic possession and gave millions the fright of their lives with the best-selling novel and Oscar-winning movie “The Exorcist,” has died. He was 89. Blatty died Thursday at a hospital in Bethesda, Maryland, where he lived, his widow, Julie Alicia Blatty, told The Associated Press. The cause of death was multiple my- William eloma, a form of blood Peter Blatty cancer, she said. Inspired by an incident in a Washington suburb that Blatty had read about while in college, “The Exorcist” was published in 1971, followed two years later by the film of the same name. Blatty’s story of a 12-year-old girl inhabited by a satanic force spent more than a year on The New York Times fiction best-seller list and eventually sold more than 10 million copies. It reached a far wider audience through the movie version, directed by William Friedkin, produced and written by Blatty and starring Linda Blair as the young, bedeviled Regan. “RIP William Peter Blatty, who wrote the great horror novel of our time,” Stephen King tweeted Friday. “So long, Old Bill.” Even those who thought they had seen everything had never seen anything like the R-rated “The Exorcist” and its assault of vomit, blood, rotting teeth, ghastly eyes and whirlwind head-spinning – courtesy of makeup and special effects maestro Dick Smith. Fans didn’t care that Vincent Canby of The New York Times

found it a “chunk of elegant occultist claptrap,” or that the set burned down during production. They stood for hours in freezing weather for the winter release and kept coming even as the movie, with its omnipresent soundtrack theme, Mike Oldfield’s chilly, tingly “Tubular Bells,” cast its own disturbing spell. From around the world came reports of fainting, puking, epileptic fits, audience members charging the screen and waving rosary beads, and, in England, a boy committing murder and blaming “The Exorcist.” The Rev. Billy Graham would allege that the film’s very celluloid was evil. Named the scariest movie of all time by Entertainment Weekly, “The Exorcist” topped $400 million worldwide at the box office, among the highest at the time for an R-rated picture. Oscar voters also offered rare respect for a horror film: “The Exorcist” was nominated for 10 Academy Awards and received two, for best sound and Blatty’s screenplay. Imitations, parodies and sequels were inevitable, whether the Leslie Nielsen spoof “Repossessed”; the four subsequent “Exorcist” movies or a stage version performed in 2012 at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles. “When I was writing the novel I thought of it as a supernatural detective story, and to this day I cannot recall having a conscious intention to terrifying anybody, which you may take, I suppose, as an admission of failure on an almost stupefying scale,” Blatty told The Huffington Post in 2011. Blatty returned to the “Exorcist” setting in “Legion,” which he adapted into “The Exorcist III.” He also revised a novel from the 1960s, “Twinkle, Twinkle, ‘Killer Kane’ ”; renamed it “The Ninth Configuration” and wrote and directed a 1980 film version that brought Blatty a Golden Globe for best screenplay.

Justice Dept. report blasts Chicago police

Probe finds years of civil rights violations The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – The Justice Department on Friday laid bare years of civil rights violations by Chicago police, blasting the nation’s second-largest department for using excessive force that included shooting at people who did not pose a threat and using stun guns on others only because they refused to follow commands. The report was issued after a yearlong investigation sparked by the 2014 death of a black teenager who was shot 16 times by a white officer. The federal investigation looked broadly at law enforcement practices, concluding that officers were not sufficiently trained or supported and that many who were accused of misconduct were rarely investigated or disciplined. The findings come just a week before a change in administration that could reorder priorities at the Justice Department. Under President Barack Obama, the government has conducted 25 civil rights investigations of police departments, including those in Cleveland, Baltimore and Seattle.

AFSCME members to vote on strike authorization

SPRINGFIELD – Illinois’ largest public-employee union told its members Friday that they soon will vote on whether to authorize a strike if contract talks with Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner’s administration remain stalled. The vote would not guarantee a strike, but indicate whether members of the state council of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees want to give their bargaining committee power to walk off the job after Rauner dismissed a contract-compromise plan this week. In that plan, the union offered to forgo any general wage increases for a fouryear period, although newer employees

His nominee to be attorney general has expressed reservations about the system, especially the reliance on courts to bring about changes. Asked about the investigation’s future, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said talks between the city and the government would go on regardless “of who is at the top of the Justice Department.” Chicago officers endangered civil-

ians, caused avoidable injuries and deaths and eroded community trust that is “the cornerstone of public safety,” said Vanita Gupta, head of the Justice Department’s civil rights division.

Transient charged in death of woman, attack on boy

OTTAWA – Prosecutors said a transient has been charged with stabbing to death a rural Illinois woman and assaulting an 11-year-old boy. Murder, predatory sexual assault of a child and aggravated battery charges were filed against 38-year-old Carl E. Lenard. During a hearing Thursday, State’s Attorney Karen Donnelly said Lenard fatally stabbed 41-year-old Damaris Lopez Pacheco Alvarado on Tuesday at her home west of Streator. Donnelly also alleged Lenard beat the boy and assaulted him before the victim was able to escape and inform a neighbor. Donnelly said Lenard attempted to flee in Pacheco’s vehicle, which he crashed

York and Los Angeles. The Justice Department began the Chicago investigation in December 2015 after the release of dashcam video showing the fatal shooting of 18-yearold Laquan McDonald, who was walking away from police holding a small folded knife. The video of the shooting, which the city fought to keep secret, inspired large protests and cost the city’s police commissioner his job. The report “confirms what civil rights lawyers have been saying for decades,” said attorney Matt Topic, who helped lead the legal fight for the release of the McDonald video. “It is momentous and pretty rewarding to see that finally confirmed by the U.S. government.” Investigators described a class for officers on the use of force that showed a video made 35 years ago – before key U.S. Supreme Court rulings that affected police practices nationwide. When instructors spoke further on the topic, several recruits did not appear to be paying attention and at least one was sleeping, the report said. Justice Department agents who questioned Chicago officers found that only 1 out of 6 who were in training or who just completed the police academy “came close to properly articulating the legal standard for use of force,” the report said.

Former teacher sentenced for abusing 15-year-old

CHICAGO – A former Chicago high school teacher received a probation sentence after pleading guilty to sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy. Benjamin Zollo pleaded guilty to aggravated criminal sexual abuse charges. Cook County Circuit Judge Thomas Gainer sentenced him Thursday to two years of probation. Prosecutors said the 34-year-old Zollo, who taught at Lincoln Park High School, contacted the boy online. After exchanging messages for a month, the boy went to Zollo’s home, where they had sex. They eventually met every two weeks, before the teen spent the night with the Zollo on New Year’s Eve 2015. Prosecutors said the boy’s parents were upset he was gone all night and called police. When questioned by his father, the boy admitted where he had been.

Trump at odds with some Cabinet choices By CALVIN WOODWARD The Associated Press

WASHINGTON – You can’t really call them “yes men.” Maybe we’re meeting Donald Trump’s “yes, but” men. Some of the incoming president’s most important Cabinet choices are at odds with him on matters that were dear to his heart as a campaigner and central to his promises to supporters. Trump said he doesn’t mind the disconnect. He wants his Cabinet members to be themselves, “say what you want to say,” he told reporters Friday in New York. “I may be right, they may be right.” But despite that breezy dismissal, the differences laid bare in a week of confirmation hearings raise questions about whether Trump will roll over his Cabinet on immigration, Russia, national security and more, bend to his top advisers’ stated convictions or watch them backtrack from pronouncements that may be helping them win Senate approval. It’s a team of rivals, with this twist: The mercurial Trump can be a rival to himself. He proposed, then appeared to move away from, a plan to freeze the entry of Muslims into the U.S. His similarly provocative call for a big border wall with Mexico has gone through several incarnations. His crowd-rousing vow to prosecute Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton melted into a tribute to her public service when she conceded the election. On Friday, he tweeted anew she was “guilty as hell.” Trump’s team isn’t nearly as inflammatory or unorthodox. Several are more traditional Republicans who toed the line on established GOP positions, even when they contradicted the boss. The result is Trump is assembling a potentially discor-

Russian hacking

Trump’s nominees to run the CIA, State Department and Justice Department gave credence to U.S. intelligence assessments on Russian hacking that the president-elect ridiculed for weeks before he grudgingly accepted it Wednesday. Kansas Republican Rep. Mike Pompeo, nominated as CIA director, said the report concluding that Russia interfered in the U.S. election trying to help Trump win was “an analytical product that is sound.” Rex Tillerson, nominated as secretary of state, told senators it’s a “fair assumption” the hacking couldn’t have happened without Russian President Vladimir Putin’s approval. Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, chosen for attorney general, said “I have no reason to doubt” the report’s conclusions.

Russia and NATO

Trump’s national security and diplomatic leaders have voiced sharp skepticism about the prospects for a warmer relationship with Moscow despite Trump’s praise of Putin.

“Russia is raising grave concerns on several fronts,” retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, chosen to run the Pentagon, told senators. “I have very modest expectations for areas of cooperation with Mr. Putin,” who he said is “trying to break the North Atlantic alliance.”

Muslims

In the campaign, Trump proposed a temporary ban on foreign Muslims entering the U.S. and at one point suggested requiring Muslims already in the country to register. The proposals then evolved into one that would halt immigration from countries linked to terrorism, though Trump never explicitly took a Muslim ban off the table, nor renounced the registry advocated by some who supported him. Tillerson told senators: “I do not support a blanket-type rejection of any particular group of people.” Retired Marine Gen. John Kelly, nominated to lead the Homeland Security Department, also weighed in: “I don’t agree with registering people based on ethnic or religion or anything like that.” Nor should religion be a basis for criminal or counter terrorism investigations, he said.

Early win for GOP on health care repeal The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – Ascendant Republicans drove a budget through Congress on Friday that gives them an early but critical victory in their crusade to scrap President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul. The vote trains the spotlight on whether they and Donald Trump can deliver on repeated pledges to not just erase that statute but replace it. Demonstrating the GOP’s willingness to plunge into a defining but risky battle, the House used a near party-line 227-198 roll call to approve a measure that prevents Senate Democrats from derailing a future bill, thus far unwritten, annulling and reshaping Obama’s landmark 2010 law. The budget, which won Senate approval early Thursday, does not need the president’s signature. “The ‘Unaffordable’ Care Act will soon be history!” Trump tweeted Friday in a dig at the statute’s name, the Af-

Trump takes the presidential oath next Friday. The real work looms in coming months as the new administration and congressional Republicans write legislation to erase much of the health care law and replace it with a GOP version. Republicans have in-

ternal divisions over what that would look like, although past GOP proposals have cut much of the existing law’s federal spending and eased coverage requirements while relying more on tax benefits and letting states make decisions. Friday’s vote was preceded by debate that saw hyperbole

on both sides and underscored how the two parties have alternate-universe views of Obama’s overhaul. Democrats praised it for extending coverage to tens of millions of Americans, helping families afford policies and seniors buy prescriptions, while Republicans focused on the rising premiums and deductibles and limited access to doctors and insurers that have plagued many. House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said the health care law was “so arrogant and so contrary to our founding principles” and had not delivered on Obama’s promises to lower costs and provide more choice. “We have to step in before things get worse. This is nothing short of a rescue mission,” Ryan said. “Our experimentation in Soviet-style central planning of our health care system has been an abject failure,” said freshman Rep. Jodey Arrington, R-Texas. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said

Ryan was peddling “mythology” and said the GOP was moving toward worsening health care for consumers. “They want to cut benefits and run. They want to cut access and run,” she said of Republicans. “This is a sad day in the history of this country as Republicans begin the process of destroying health care in America,” said Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., arguing that the GOP has no replacement in hand. “All you have is smoke and mirrors, and the American people are getting ready to get screwed.” Nine Republicans joined all voting Democrats in opposing the budget. The budget’s approval means Senate Democrats won’t be allowed to filibuster the future repeal-and-replace bill – a pivotal advantage for Republicans. They control the Senate 52-48, but it takes 60 votes to end filibusters, or endless procedural delays that can scuttle legislation.

During a news conference Wednesday, Trump pointedly would not say whether he planned to repeal the sanctions ordered by Obama. He again highlighted his warmer rapport with the Russian leader.

WASHINGTON – President-elect Donald Trump’s national security adviser and Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. have been in frequent contact in recent weeks, including on the day the Obama administration hit Moscow with sanctions in retaliation for election-related hacking, a senior official said Friday. Trump spokesman Sean Spicer acknowledged contacts between Michael Flynn and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, but said a phone conversation occurred Dec. 28, one day before the sanctions were levied. Spicer said the men did not discuss sanctions. He did not specifically deny additional contacts the following day. It’s not unusual for incoming administrations to have discussions with foreign governments before taking office. But the repeated contacts just as President Barack Obama imposed sanctions would raise questions about whether Trump’s team discussed – or even helped shape – Russia’s response to the penalties. Russian President Vladimir Putin unexpectedly did not retaliate against the U.S. for the move, a decision

“If Putin likes Donald Trump, I consider that an asset, not a liability, because we have a horrible relationship with Russia,” he said. The sanctions targeted the GRU and FSB, leading Russian intelligence agencies that the U.S. said were involved in the hacking of the Democratic National Committee and other groups. The U.S. also kicked out 35 Russian diplomats who it said were actually intelligence operatives. Trump has been willing to insert himself into major foreign policy issues during the transition, at times contradicting the current administration and diplomatic protocol. He accepted a call from Taiwan’s president, ignoring the long-standing “One China” policy that does not recognize the island’s sovereignty. He also publicly urged the U.S. to veto a United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israeli settlements, then slammed the Obama administration for abstaining and allowing the measure to pass. Questions about Trump’s friendly posture toward Russia have deepened since the election, as he has dismissed U.S. intelligence agencies’ assertions about Russia’s role in the hacking of Democratic groups.

Help prevent teen suicide

Thumbs up: To the McHenry County Mental Health Board and Crystal Lake-based Community High School District 155 for their partnership to train about 250 staff members to be better equipped to help prevent suicide. High school communities around the area including in District 155 have been devastated too often when students have taken their own lives, leaving permanent wounds to surviving family members and friends. This training will help those who are around young people everyday better identify risks and guide students toward seeking the help they need. Thumbs up: To Huntley resident Cynthia Schumann, for creating an online program designed to help train staffs in the hospitality industry on what to do if they see a potentially unsafe situation for guests or employees. Using her 30 years of experience with the Chicago Police Department, Schumann has created a program that should help employers better utilize anti-violence strategies. The course, found at learnwithluma. com/domestic-violence-in-the-workplace, takes about an hour to complete, and we encourage those who can take it to do so. Thumbs down: To Illinois House Democrats

who once again voted Michael Madigan their leader. Madigan was elected to his 17th term as Speaker, putting him on track to soon become the longest-serving statehouse speaker in modern U.S. history. During Madigan’s tenure, Illinois has amassed a $120 billion pension deficit, the worstin-the-nation; more than $11 billion in unpaid bills to vendors who already have supplied the services they are owed for; the worst credit rating of any state in the country; and we could go on and on. Yet House Democrats think he is their best option to lead them for another two years? No, the truth is they are afraid of him and his power. Shame.

Thumbs up: To the lone Democrat, Rep. Scott Drury of Highwood, who did not vote for Madigan. “I am confident that my vote represents the view of the vast majority of my constituents,” Drury, who voted “present” on the speakership election, said in a written statement. “In that respect, the decision was easy. Unfortunately, I have learned that what is popular with constituents does not always align with what is popular in Springfield. In the end, I chose the public over politicians.” So now we’ll get to see how Madigan chooses to punish Drury for his defiance.

VIEWS

Rubio cannot back down now By JENNIFER RUBIN The Washington Post

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., was far and away the most effective questioner on the GOP side in Wednesday’s confirmation hearing for Rex Tillerson for secretary of state. He asked crisp questions, pointed out where Tillerson dodged and demonstrated the degree to which Tillerson was uncomfortable giving definitive answers on a range of issues, including human rights. The committee members have other concerns, including Tillerson’s tenure at ExxonMobil. Democrats pressed him on his record of doing business through an affiliate with countries such as Syria and Iran, and asked him to explain ExxonMobil’s record of denying climate change. He would not answer directly, underscoring how different his role was as a corporate chief executive from that of a secretary of state. Tillerson’s unfamiliarity with the inner workings of government and of diplomacy would put him

in a much weaker position than, say, a John Bolton, who possesses granular knowledge of issues and experience taming State Department bureaucracy. For those concerned the permanent foreign service corps would undermine a newcomer at every turn and slowwalk policy initiatives, Tillerson is a problematic choice. His reliance on generic statements and refusal to reveal policy positions emphasized just how much he will have to learn. A steep learning curve for a secretary of state in times such as these may be deeply worrisome, particularly when national security appointees in the White House (e.g. Michael T. Flynn) may capitalize on a weaker-than-usual secretary of state to push their personal agendas. Rubio did not say how he would vote on Tillerson’s confirmation. However, as one who was perceived as less than resolute during and after the presidential campaign, Rubio should align his votes with his rhetoric if he wants to silence critics. In the end, Rubio might

conclude other Trump picks could be worse than Tillerson, or that Tillerson is at least open to listening to Congress and learning as he goes. He might find that Tillerson will try to live down his reputation as soft on Russia, and therefore be more aggressive in his Russia policy than others would. Regardless of the reason, however, if he winds up voting to confirm Tillerson, he only will have underscored criticism that his bark is worse than his bite. Rubio has a remarkable opportunity to distinguish himself from more politically craven, hawkish colleagues such as Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who introduced Tillerson, and Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., who backed Tillerson before hearing a word of testimony. We will see how much Rubio has learned from the presidential experience and his first term in the Senate. Does going along to get along pay off, or does forging your own way on issues that may put you at odds with the party make you into presidential material? The Tillerson vote will be telling.

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.

Everything despicable in politics

VIEWS Austin Berg Madigan on Wednesday – state Reps. Will Guzzardi, Christian Mitchell and Marcus C. Evans – were not alive when Madigan first became speaker in 1983. But, on the other hand, Illinoisans should be flabbergasted. “You’ll see a man who works seven days a week to get the job done without putting the focus on himself,” state Rep. Dan Beiser, D-Alton, said after seconding the nomination for Madigan as speaker. When nearly two-thirds of voters disapprove of the speaker, according to polling from the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute, how could so many lawmakers give the man ultimate power over the House? These representatives aren’t supposed to work for the speaker. They’re supposed to work for the rest of us. And it is ultimate power. An Illinois Policy Institute report surveying all 50 states revealed that Illinois grants more control to its House speaker than anywhere else in the country.

the board making judgment was composed of township officials! How surprising then that all of the caucus Republicans have been denied ballot access by this “impartial” board. Ask the appointed township supervisor if he wants someone to run opposing him ... as a board member he is pretty likely to vote no. It’s a little like having your accuser as judge! But come on, this is township government. It has nothing to do with fairness or what is best for taxpayers. It has to do with holding on to power. Always remember to vote for those who want to change the status quo. They will be on the ballot as write-in candidates. Judy Anderson Wonder Lake

Madigan decides which bills receive a public hearing. Madigan decides who chairs committees and receives the $10,000 stipends that go with them. Madigan decides who votes in committees. And Madigan decides when bills are called before the full House. That’s not democracy. That’s a dictatorship. One-man rule of the General Assembly has crippled Illinois. Madigan’s has not been a long and prosperous reign for Illinoisans. Under his watchful eye, the Land of Lincoln has slid further into financial decay and slowly become a desert of economic opportunity. It is now the former home of millions who have fled for other states, seeking better lives. Yet, every two years, about 22,000 voters from his small Chicago district send Madigan to the Statehouse. And then House Democrats make him king. Because of enormous public pressure, lawmakers in the run-up to the vote faced unprecedented questioning about their vote for speaker. Many dodged criticism by framing the vote as one between a Democrat and a Republican, Durkin. That argument falls flat. If

Democrats really wanted leadership change, it would have required only one brave lawmaker to accept a nomination and another to second it. Just a lone Democrat out of the 66 not named Mike Madigan. State Rep. Kelly Cassidy, D-Chicago, offered a slightly different justification for her vote. But it’s just as concerning. “I have a good working relationship with Leader Durkin,” she wrote in an email to constituents defending her vote for the speaker, “but to put him in charge of the House would effectively put Governor Rauner in the driver’s seat.” Cassidy points to the problem of the speakership under Madigan: If one Republican could turn a Democrat-majority House into the governor’s lapdog, the speaker’s role has become far too powerful. A vote for Madigan has nothing to do with ideals. It has everything to do with power. And the speaker still holds all the cards.

Illinois’ 100th General Assembly began with a whimper. That was the sound of House Democrats casting their votes for the most hated politician in the state, Mike Madigan, on the floor of the Sangamon Auditorium on January 11. Despite cries across Illinois to change course, House Democrats elected to defend the Cook County property tax lawyer at the expense of their own constituents. They gifted Madigan the House speakership for the 17th time on a straight party line vote. House Republicans voted for state Rep. Jim Durkin, R-Burr Ridge. In a hopeful wrinkle, Highwood Democrat Scott Drury cast a “present” vote. This is the first time a Democrat has voted present for the speaker in 30 years. On one hand, sadly, this result is not at all surprising. Madigan has held the speakership for 32 of the past 34 years. Come the end of his term in 2019, he will be the longest-serving House speaker of any state in modern U.S. history. No American will have led a state legislative body for longer. To put that in context, three Chicago Democrats who voted for

EPA moves to preserve gas mileage requirements By TOM KRISHER and MICHAEL BIESECKER The Associated Press

WASHINGTON – The Environmental Protection Agency moved Friday to cement strict fuel economy requirements that force the auto industry to make new cars and trucks significantly more efficient, a decision that will be difficult for the incoming Trump administration to undo. The EPA said in late November that it had completed a required midterm review of Corporate Average Fuel Economy standards put in place in 2012 and decided they should not be relaxed as requested by the auto industry. The move in the waning days of the Obama administration brought protests from congressional Republicans and automakers, which accused the agency of playing politics with a rushed determination. Friday’s action keeps in place pollution reduction targets for the years 20222025. That means the fleet of new cars will have to average 51.4 miles per gallon by 2025, up more than 18 mpg from the 33.2 mpg requirement in 2015, the most recent year available. Acting EPA Assistant Administrator Janet McCabe said the agency determined the technology is available to meet the standards. The requirements are flexible and will automatically be reduced if consumers keep buying trucks and SUVs, she said. For example, when the standards were conceived in 2012, the fleet-wide mileage target for 2025 was 54.5 mpg. But because more trucks and SUVs are now being sold, that number was reduced to 51.4, the EPA said. In 2012, gasoline was $3.60 a gallon,

compared with around $2.35 currently. During several months last year, the SUVs and trucks captured a record share of the market. At year’s end nearly six of every 10 new vehicles sold were trucks or SUVs. “You have to accommodate consumer choice,” McCabe said. “The automakers need to have the standards represent what people are buying.” But the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, an industry lobbying group, said the standards rise quickly during the next eight years and will be difficult for companies to meet as America’s shift toward trucks and SUVs continues. “We have the technology, but if sales aren’t there, we can’t meet the standards,” said Gloria Bergquist, spokeswoman for the alliance. “That’s a regulatory-marketplace collision.” The industry has appealed to Trump for help. His transition team didn’t respond to questions about the EPA’s decision. The public comment period on the standards ended Dec. 30. A decision 14 days later is unusually swift for a government agency. Normally it takes months or years for regulatory decisions to be made, and an EPA decision wasn’t required until April 2018. Bergquist said the alliance believes the decision was moved forward after Trump was elected. The group hopes to work out a compromise with Trump, who has railed against regulations that he calls unnecessary. Republicans in Congress also weighed in, accusing EPA of short-circuiting the evaluation process and making new vehicles more expensive. In

“Despite dire automaker warnings that the rules would be unachievable, the car companies are now complying, making huge profits and selling record numbers of vehicles for a second consecutive year.” Daniel Becker

Safe Climate Campaign director a joint statement, the leaders of three key House committees suggested lawmakers would take action to reverse the EPA’s ruling. “For the sake of vehicle affordability and safety, as well as the health of the automotive sector, we need to make sure that the standards have been set at achievable levels, but EPA’s rushed analysis falls far short,” said Environment Subcommittee Chairman John Shimkus, R-Illinois; Digital Commerce and Consumer Protection Subcommittee Chairman Bob Latta, R-Ohio; and Energy Subcommittee Chairman Fred Upton, R-Michigan. “If the EPA won’t do its job and take a careful look at these regulations, then Congress will,” they added. McCabe denied that the requirements were rushed and said the standards give the auto industry certainty so it can make product plans. The EPA, she said, based its decision on robust data that shows the industry has many affordable ways to comply including di-

rect-injection gas engines, hybrids and electric vehicles. The EPA estimates that the standards will reduce emissions by 6 billion tons by 2025. And in the byzantine world of fuel economy standards, the 51.4 mpg target for 2025 is based on 1970s EPA tests and is nowhere near real-world mileage. In eight years, the fleet of new vehicles would have to get about 36 mpg on tests now used to determine mileage that’s posted on car window stickers. That’s about 10 mpg higher than the current standard, the EPA said. Both sides disagree about the cost of the standards. The industry contends they’ll drive up new car prices and force more people to buy used. The EPA said gasoline cost savings will offset nominally higher prices. Daniel Becker, director of the Safe Climate Campaign, an environmental group, said it could take years for the Trump administration to change the standards, if it decides to. The new administration would have to have data showing the change was justified, he said. Environmental groups likely would sue to block any changes, he added. “Despite dire automaker warnings that the rules would be unachievable, the car companies are now complying, making huge profits and selling record numbers of vehicles for a second consecutive year,” Becker said. Even without the standards, industry analysts say automakers will have to make the efficient cars anyway to comply with strict mileage and pollution requirements in California, Europe and China.

NEW YORK – ABC said “Quantico” star Priyanka Chopra is “home resting comfortably” after being injured on the set of the action-thriller series Thursday night. The network released no details on the injury, which it termed “a minor incident” during filming of the New York-based show. Chopra was examined by a doctor and released from the hospital, ABC said. There was no word on how long she will be sidelined from production. On “Quantico,” now in its second season, Chopra plays Alex Parrish, a former FBI agent pulled into a deadly conspiracy involving the CIA.

Inaugural concert to feature Toby Keith, Jennifer Holliday WASHINGTON – Donald Trump’s inaugural welcome concert next week will feature country star Toby Keith, singer Jennifer Holliday and actor Jon Voight, organizers announced Friday. The names add some celebrity flavor to an inaugural lineup that so far has been noticeably short on star power, with organizers insisting that Trump himself is the celebrity in chief for this inaugural. Also performing at Thursday’s “Make America Great Again!

But Trump has insisted that’s how he wants it, saying the swearing-in festivities should be about the people not the elites.

‘The new American Dream’ Trailer-home buyers find they can save money – and face, too

W

hen Mary Ann Ridenour and Bill Ridenour became empty nesters last year, their 3,200-square-foot home suddenly seemed superfluous. As many couples at this stage of life do, the Ridenours decided to downsize. But unlike many others, they left their big house in a golf course community for a trailer home. “When I tell people what we did they think I’m joking,” Mary Ann Ridenour said. Their move, however, is not as uncommon as you might think. As housing costs – both buying and renting – remain high in many parts of the country, some people are finding trailer homes to be an affordable option. In fact, roughly 20 million people in the United States live in trailer houses, also referred to as mobile homes, according to Census numbers. For the Ridenours, the impetus for moving into a trailer was cutting costs. Mary Ann Ridenour, a 49-year-old who works full time as a court reporter, started a side business a year earlier. The couple wanted more cash to support her endeavor, so the $1,800 monthly mortgage payment on their house in Sum-

By TRACEE M. HERBAUGH • The Associated Press merville, South Carolina, needed to go. “We were working our butts off to live in this big house that we didn’t need,” Ridenour said. “We thought, ‘Why are we paying this ridiculous mortgage on this home?’ It was strapping us.” They bought a 3-bedroom, 2-bath trailer with a half-acre of land about 10 years ago, for $143,000. The trailer, whose previous owners had used it as a summertime crash pad, was 2 miles from the beach and across the street from native marshlands outside Charleston. The Ridenours moved in last July. “It’s not a sign of a great accomplishment that I’ve moved from a big beautiful home to a trailer,” Ridenour said with a laugh. “Once we swallowed our pride, we now find the awkwardness when people realize our living conditions amusing.” She said she and her husband are much happier overall now that they’re not stressed about money. Trailer-home aesthetics have changed. Many today have modern interior designing, stainless-steel appliances and colorful paint. “I love my trailer,” said Kodi Bryant, 40, who bought the home in Golden, Colorado, for $20,000. Her side deck offers a

view of the downtown Denver skyline and the Rocky Mountains. “I looked at apartments in the Denver area, but they were so expensive,” she said. “I didn’t want to work in a cubicle and come home to a cubicle.” Mobile homes have long helped fill gaps in affordable housing. They were introduced after World War II and geared toward the millions of veterans returning home. Since then, trailer homes have grown in popularity. Census data from 2000 showed mobile homes constituted 7.6 percent of housing, compared to 0.7 percent in 1950. Trailers still play an important role in satisfying the country’s housing needs, according to Charles Becker, a professor of economics at Duke University, who has studied the topic. Not only is there a steady stock of trailer homes in tight housing markets, but they can accommodate lower- or middle-income people “who don’t want to own more housing because they’re retired or they can’t afford it,” Becker said. The average price of a trailer home, which usually does not include the land under it, is about $73,000, according to Census data. This price often is more

affordable than traditional single-family homes, especially for young families starting out or for first-time buyers. “In some ways, this could be looked at as the new American Dream because the old American Dream has become unreachable for so many people,” said Daniel Levine, director of the AvantGuide Institute, a business that watches consumer trends. Affordability was what prompted Emily McBroom, 33, and her husband, Jesse McBroom, 32, to buy a trailer house outside Denton, Texas. “We could get a brand-new trailer home with the newest appliances and pay less than the cheapest rent in the area,” Emily McBroom said. Their two-bedroom, 600-square-foot trailer cost $29,000. The couple have their trailer on more than 7 acres of wooded land. McBroom said it came down to priorities: They wanted to own a place, pay down student debt and have enough money to travel. “It takes a certain person who will live in a trailer,” she said. “You have to be comfortable with yourself and throw off the old-school ideals that you must be poor if you live in a trailer.”

Hometown: Marengo Year you became a Master Gardener: 2015

Saturday, January 28, 2017 8 a.m.–12:30 p.m. | McHenry County College FREE ADMISSION some of our less fortunate neighbors seemed to be a good fit. It was a way to meet people in our new town, a way to give back, a way to learn more about the earth and cycles of seasons and their impact on how plants grow. We joined the 2015 class of Master Gardeners and became involved in the Harvard Community Growing Together pantry garden, Farm Stroll and Garden Walk. It has been a rewarding experience working with new friends supplying vegetables to the food pantry. This year in a plot next to the Harvard Library, we planted 15 rows of veggies, each 150 feet long. By all accounts, it was a good year. In 2016, we harvested 12,500 pounds of vegetables for the pantry. The Farm Stroll is in its second year, and this year attracted more than 500 people visiting 12 area farms learning about where our food comes from, the importance of bees, hydroponically grown veggies, alpacas and lots of other great information about area small farmers and the role they play in our community. As a newcomer to the area, I was surprised and pleased that extensive gardening experience was not a requirement to begin the Master Gardener Program. As a relative beginner in the gardening process, we were welcomed and able to contribute to the programs that McHenry County Master Gardeners sponsor.

What is your background, and how did you get started gardening? I am a retired educator from Michigan. My wife and I moved to the area to be closer to kids and grandkids, who had moved to the Chicago area a decade ago. My mom, grandma and great-grandma were all avid flower gardeners. I grew up around folks who enjoyed the process of digging in the soil and producing things of beauty for everyone to enjoy. But I wasn’t involved. When I was in the ninth grade, we moved from Ohio to Michigan. We lived on a small lot in a subdivision. We met some folks who lived a few miles from us on a large lot who had interest in growing vegetables, but, unfortunately, the well on their property was salt water. A bargain was struck. We would plant a garden at their home and we would bring water to the site to support the plant growth and share in the duties of planting, weeding and harvesting. It was there I first enjoyed veggies that weren’t from the grocery store, eating peppers, beans and tomatoes as we harvested food for our evening meals. At that point, I was hooked. Wandering out to the garden and picking/eating a pepper for an afternoon snack was great fun. It was a giant science experiment starting with a rototiller and ending with great tasting meals as the end result of our effort. Over the years, I moved around. Our move to Marengo was the 14th house since those days of planting a garden with friends in Michigan. Some places we put in a vegetable garden, while other places we did not. My experience was pretty slim, but I always enjoyed coming back from the garden with a basket of fresh vegetables for supper. What motivated you to become a Master Gardener? What projects do you volunteer for within the organization? One Saturday afternoon as we explored our new community, we met Mary Johnson in a booth at the Woodstock Farmers Market. She told us about the Master Gardener program and projects they conducted. Her story about the community garden in Harvard that grew fruits and vegetables for the local food pantry was a winner in our book.

Mini-stroke may signal health issue Dear Doctor: While my wife and I were working in the garden, she got dizzy and couldn’t understand what I was saying. It went away after a few minutes, but I took her to the ER anyway. The doctors said she had a TIA. What is that, and is it dangerous? Dear Reader: Your wife experienced a transient ischemic attack, or TIA. Also known as a mini-stroke, a TIA happens when part of the brain temporarily is deprived of blood flow. You were right to seek immediate medical help. The symptoms of a TIA and those of a major stroke, which is the fifth-leading cause of death in the United States, are quite similar. And though the effects of a TIA are temporary – that’s the “transient” in the name – that doesn’t mean they’re harmless. First, let’s talk about what’s going on. Ischemic strokes occur when a blood vessel in the brain becomes blocked, often by a blood clot. As a result, the part of the brain that is fed by that vessel is starved of blood. Since blood carries oxygen, which is vital to survival, it takes just a few minutes for brain cells to begin to die. Unlike in a major ischemic stroke, where the blockage persists and damage can be permanent, a TIA resolves quickly. Sometimes it takes just a few minutes, and sometimes the effects can last up to 24 hours. When the TIA is over, the person feels normal again. Symptoms of a TIA include the dizziness and cognitive lapse your wife experienced. Additional symptoms may be a sudden headache, impaired vision, numbness or weakness in the face or limbs, garbled speech, and loss of balance and coordination. The federal Centers for Disease Control

SUDOKU

ASK THE DOCTORS Elizabeth Ko and Eve Glazier and Prevention classify a TIA as a medical emergency. Although impairment due to a TIA is temporary, the event itself is a warning sign that needs to be addressed. A person who has experienced a TIA is at increased risk of a full-blown stroke, particularly in the first few days after the attack. However, with prompt treatment, as well as certain lifestyle changes, you can decrease the chance of a future stroke. Your wife should see her primary care physician to discuss what happened and to begin treatment. This typically includes taking aspirin, a blood thinner that makes your platelets less likely to clump together. Aspirin should be initiated and continued under a doctor’s supervision. The good news is your wife also can make some simple lifestyle changes to decrease her risk of another episode: • Keep blood pressure under control. • Don’t smoke, and avoid secondhand smoke. • Maintain a healthy weight. • Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables. • Exercise regularly. • Avoid stress. • Get enough sleep. • Limit alcohol. Even better news: Every one of these suggestions will make you healthier, too. • Eve Glazier, M.D., MBA, is an internist and assistant professor of medicine at UCLA Health.

plain to the mother the “dirty words” her daughter is being taught are normal are sure to create problems for her when she’s old enough for school. Perhaps it will be the wakeup call she needs to clean up her vocabulary. However, if that isn’t effective, then it’s up to you to teach your granddaughter that dirty words cannot be used in your home. Reward her when she remembers, remind her when she forgets and institute penalties if it persists. That’s how kids learn, and you will be doing her a favor if you start early.

to Russ and ask if he would be open to a bit of “coaching” to improve his social life. Tell him you have seen his dating profiles and offer to help him tweak them. If new photos are needed, suggest you go shopping together for a new outfit (or two), so he will have a more “contemporary” look. If he needs to learn to dance, show him some steps. He may accept some help if you approach the subject with sensitivity. However, I’m not sure how much more than that you can do because, in the end, Russ is going to have to find a girl whose values mirror his own. Dear Abby: Our 2-year-old granddaughter is using “dirty words” during her visits with us. We have tried ignoring her, and also popping her on the bottom while saying “no.” Her mother uses this language, so this situation is very confusing for our granddaughter. Please help. – Confused In

DEAR ABBY My friend “Russ” is a Jeanne sweet, quiet, rePhillips served guy with a goofy side. He’s in his mid-20s, but has never kissed a girl or gone out on a date. (He is the kind of person girls regard as a brother figure.) He has no confidence and doesn’t drink, dance or let loose. I have seen his dating profiles, and they are brutally unappealing. I want to help Russ find someone before it’s too late. I hate seeing him lonely. He needs someone to give him a chance and help him learn to be more confident. I know it’s wrong to try to change someone, but I feel if he doesn’t get some help, no one will ever give him the time of day. He needs a sense of adventure and, frankly, a change of wardrobe. How can I help this “good boy” get the attention of the ladies? – Amanda In Wyo-

To end the week, the defense that won the Richard Freeman Junior Deal of the Year award from the International Bridge Press Association. First, look only at the West hand and the auction. What would you have led against three spades? South’s bidding was a tad undisciplined. The Law of Total Tricks advises against bidding to the three-level with only an eight-card fit (unless you have a double fit). Here, three diamonds would have been defeated if South had cashed two spades, then shifted to a low club. The deal occurred during the World Youth Teams Championship in Italy, in the last session of the Youngsters (under 20) final between Italy and the Netherlands. The match went to Italy, but this was the most interesting deal. At the other table, the Italian West led the diamond ace (as would we all), then switched to the spade 10 ... too late. South won in his hand, gave up a diamond trick, took the next spade with his nine and ruffed his last diamond on the board. Shortly thereafter, South lost only one heart, two diamonds and one club. Somehow, Leen Stougie (West) found an initial trump lead. Declarer won with his nine and led a diamond. West took the trick with his king and played his last trump. South won that in his hand and led another diamond. West played the jack, and East, Marc Stougie (Leen’s brother), overtook with his queen to lead a third trump. Now the defenders had to get one heart, three diamonds and one club to defeat the contract. Clairvoyant!

No fan of Spanos An excerpt from a column by The Associated Press’ Tim Dahlberg:

For once, Roger Goodell was right. Dean Spanos did everything he could. Everything he could to fleece the people of San Diego. Everything he could to alienate a fan base that remained far more loyal than he deserved until the bitter end. Everything he could to pretend he cared about those fans when all he really wanted was a new stadium and the extra millions it would bring. Yes, relocation is painful, as Goodell noted in his statement blessing the Chargers’ move to Los Angeles. Fortunately for Spanos, the pain of leaving San Diego will be lessened by the opportunity to sell personal seat licenses about 100 miles north. As for the pain felt by those left behind? So long suckers!

By JOE STEVENSON

joestevenson@shawmedia.com CRYSTAL LAKE – Crystal Lake South seemed to release all its pent-up frustration and energy at once to start the fourth quarter. The Gators had played one game in 13 days and were weary of practicing against one another. They had won only once since Dec. 10, and that triumph came against Chicago Sullivan, a team everyone beat soundly at Jacobs’ Hinkle Holiday Classic. Simply stated, South desperately needed to make something happen, and the fourth quarter Friday was the ideal time. After a spirited speech from coach Matt LePage, the Gators played perhaps their best quarter of basketball, scooping up turnovers and converting them into layups on the other end. Almost every shot came in the paint as South rolled to a 66-53 Fox Valley Conference boys basketball victory at Gator Alley. South (6-10 overall, 2-3 FVC) pushed the margin to 13 points early in the third quarter, but Central (4-11, 0-6) came back to tie it at 42-all heading to the fourth. “At the end of the third, Coach [LePage] was pretty energetic on the bench, saying we needed to play better,” said forward Kyle Leva, who scored 10 of his team-high 19 points in the fourth. “He kind of lit a fire for us, so we did the best we could. That’s the best I’ve seen our press work this year.” The Gators’ full-court zone pressure became too much for the Tigers, who committed 10 fourth-quarter turnovers. “Throughout the week, we’ve really gotten pushed by Coach because we didn’t have a great tournament (at Jacobs) and we weren’t playing well,” said guard Matt Meyers, who scored 18 points. “We got that push from our coach, that slap in the face and knew we had to bear down and kick Central’s butt.” South started the fourth quarter with a 16-2 run with several similar-looking baskets – a turnover, a couple of quick passes and an assist for a layup. “We scored, so that got us into the pressure. We talked about amping it up in our press and trying to own the paint,” LePage said. “The ball was mov-

We answered it and did a nice job getting into the paint.” Adam Wittenberg got the Tigers going in the third quarter with a 3-pointer and two other baskets. Then it was 6-foot8 sophomore Alex Timmerman’s turn, as he scored 10 of his 19 in that quarter. “We were right where we wanted to be,” Tigers coach Rich Czeslawski said. “In the fourth quarter, we just didn’t take care of the ball. We gave them eight extra possessions. That’s how you get 24 points in a quarter. When you have live-ball turnovers, [transition layups] are what happens. I’d rather we have a five-second call or travel than hand the ball over.” Wittenberg added 11 points for Central, and Evan Cassell grabbed 10 rebounds to go with six points.

Kirchner has scored four 3-point shots in back-to-back games after making four Tuesday against Genoa-Kingston.

q AND ANOTHER THING ...

McHenry coach Tim Paddock said the Warriors were surrendering about 42 points a game entering Friday’s matchup. The Indians scored 32 in the first half. and eight rebounds. Marengo trailed by seven early in the second quarter. After Marengo battled to within three, the Indians’ bench picked up a technical foul. “My assistant was talking about a call,” Marengo coach Nate Wright said. “He wasn’t directing it at the official. He was directing it at me. (We)

got T’d up. In hindsight, we had to forget about the officials at that point and we just had to play the game.” Volkening said there was a lot of talking going on during the game. “The first half we were a little too caught up in the extra things: reffing, talking to the other players,” he said. “The second half we really got it going, grinded it out.” The technical was a four-point swing, and McHenry led by four at halftime. Early in the third quarter, a pair of 3-pointers from Marengo’s Aidan Kirchner turned the deficit into a six-point advantage. Kirchner finished the game with 12 points on four 3-pointers. “Aidan Kirchner hit some big shots for us tonight,” Wright said. “You talk about a kid who at the beginning of the year wasn’t seeing any time at all, and he’s just progressed and progressed over the course of the year and has really started to gain some confidence.” McHenry evened the score in the fourth quarter with about 7:30 to play, but the Warriors never regained the lead. Volkening scored on a key threepoint play, making the free throw after being knocked to the floor. The

score put the Indians up six, and they held on the rest of the way. Gavin Markgraff led the Warriors with 18 points. Gio Calabrese scored 14 points and Patrick Breisch added 12. McHenry’s Matthew Mohr led all players with 16 rebounds. Warriors coach Tim Paddock said Friday was his team’s worst defensive effort of the season. “[Marengo] played hard; we didn’t match their intensity,” Paddock said. “We didn’t guard anybody. They made plays. I’ve got to give them credit. Guys hit shots when they were open.” Volkening and Kirchner were the only double-figure scorers for the Indians. Kirchner said it was fun to watch Volkening pass 1,000 points after he missed two late shot attempts in Tuesday’s game against Genoa-Kingston that could have gotten him there. “We were hoping he’d get it last game,” Kirchner said. “We’re glad that he got it tonight. He’s a really great teammate. He helps me in the gym in the mornings. This morning he took me into the gym and took me through some stuff.” The extra work seems to be paying off.

GIRLS BASKETBALL: McHENRY 40, CARY-GROVE 38

Kaempf’s clutch free throw carries Warriors By ALEX KANTECKI

akantecki@shawmedia.com McHENRY – McHenry girls basketball coach Rob Niemic was so confident in Madisyn Kaempf’s ability to hit the go-ahead free throw against Cary-Grove with 1.1 seconds remaining Friday that he didn’t even put any players in position to rebound a possible miss. Madisyn The 5-foot-8 senior Kaempf rewarded her coach’s confidence, hitting the front-end of a 1-and-1 to push the Warriors into the lead for good and a 40-38 Fox Valley Conference victory. Kaempf, who tried to miss the second free throw, made that one, too, banking the freebie off the backboard for a twopoint lead. A desperation 3-point attempt well past half court by C-G’s Maddie Gorz fell short as time expired. “I was so nervous, but I pictured it in my mind that it was practice,” Kaempf said. “If I missed it, I make my whole

Almost half of the field goals (24) for McHenry and Cary-Grove on Friday were 3-pointers (11). team run. The main thing is I took a deep breath before I actually shot it. They (coaches) correct me all the time about holding my follow-through and not leaving it short.” Kaempf’s game-winning free throws weren’t her only shining moment. She also hit a go-ahead 3 with 1:39 left after

Gorz had put the Trojans (10-9 overall, 5-4 FVC) ahead by one point with a 3. Liz Alsot (game-high 12 points, eight rebounds) then made two free throws to give McHenry (13-6, 6-3 FVC) a 38-35 lead with 47.2 seconds left. “I kept telling her, ‘It’s gonna fall,’ ” Niemic said of Kaempf stepping up in the final seconds. “That was her being a senior right there. Home game. You hit a 3 to take the lead. I’m just super proud of her. She’s made, like, 17 out of her last 19 free throws, so I knew it was going to go in.” Kaempf, who had five of her seven points in the fourth, had a chance to increase McHenry’s lead late but missed the front end of a 1-and-1 with 15 seconds left. C-G’s Katie Demert hit a 3 in the corner with a hand in her face to tie the score at 38 with 4.4 seconds remaining, but the Trojans fouled with 1.1 seconds left to send Kaempf to the line. “It was a great game, and I’ll take the blame for the end,” Trojans coach Rod Saffert said. “That’s the one thing I didn’t tell them during the timeout. If you do hit the big 3, don’t foul ... just let

it go. In the heat of the moment, it happens.” Izzy Gscheidle was second on McHenry with 10 points and two 3s, Julia Rice had six points and two 3s, Avalon Henderson had four blocks and six rebounds, and Kaempf added four assists. Gscheidle held C-G junior Katie Sowa, who entered the game averaging 17.2 points a game, to six points on 1-of8 shooting. Sowa picked up her second foul in the first quarter and sat out most of the second. The win was important for McHenry, which had lost two out of its past three conference games. In their last loss, to Crystal Lake South, the Warriors held a 16-2 lead after the first quarter. “This was one of her biggest wins of the season, and for our confidence,” Gscheidle said. “We don’t want to lose on our home court.” Becca Kendeigh led the Trojans with 11 points, including two 3s, Demert had nine points and eight rebounds, and Gorz had eight points with a pair of 3s. For the Trojans, Friday’s FVC loss was their third in a row after starting 5-1.

BURLINGTON – Mike Volkening was quick to get the formalities out of the way. Marengo’s senior guard entered Friday’s boys basketball game against McHenry in the first round of pool play in the Burlington Central MLK Classic sitting on 999 career points. Volkening nailed a 3-pointer from the corner on the Indians’ first possession to surpass the 1,000-point milestone. His team went on to beat McHenry, 63-58, after trailing at halftime. “It was exciting,” Volkening said of the milestone. “Most of all, I’m just excited we got the win. It was a hardfought win.” Volkening finished with 29 points

4 GIRLS BASKETBALL: JACOBS 56, CRYSTAL LAKE CENTRAL 45

Golden Eagles hold off pesky Tigers By TIM FROEHLIG

sports@nwherald.com CRYSTAL LAKE – On paper, Friday night’s Fox Valley Conference girls basketball showdown between Jacobs and Crystal Lake Central was a matchup of two sub-.500 teams. On the court, it quickly turned into an exciting, up-tempo contest that gave both teams plenty of reasons for optimism. The result was a 56-45 Jacobs victory, as the Golden Eagles (7-9, 5-3 FVC) continue to linger close enough in the standings to stay in contention for a conference title, especially after firstplace Huntley lost to Dundee-Crown on Friday, the Red Raiders’ second FVC loss. “That’s definitely something that continues to motivate us,” said Jacobs senior Carly Sidor, who had a teambest 19 points. “At the beginning of the year, we struggled to find team chemistry. But lately, I kind of feel like we’ve been turning a corner. “This is a tougher conference than a lot of people realize. We do pay attention to the standings, but we also make sure to take things one game at a time

Points by Jacobs junior guard Kerri Healy. However, it was her scrappy defense and energy in Jacobs’ 2-3 zone that helped force numerous bad passes and turnovers.

Jacobs senior forward Maggie Grady had 11 offensive rebounds, including nine in the first half. Those extra possessions were a key reason the Golden Eagles wound up with 16 more field goal attempts than the Tigers.

and focus on taking small steps toward our larger goals.” Those baby steps include the Golden Eagles using a pair of fist-year varsity players in their rotation, as the team enters the second half of the season. Freshmen guard Kyra Cabusao (six

assists) started Friday’s game, while freshman Elizabeth Schwartz (nine points) drained three consecutive third-quarter 3-pointers that helped stall a potential Central rally, when the Tigers briefly cut Jacobs’ lead to five. “I can’t say enough about how important the younger girls have been in the ongoing evolution of this basketball team, and what a complement they’ve been to our veteran players and six seniors,” Jacobs coach Joe Benoit said. “I was impressed with how unselfish we were tonight, in particular. We had a season-high 16 assists.” One of those seniors, Maggie Grady, had a monster first half, racking up 11 points and 13 rebounds in the game’s first 16 minutes. She finished with 14 points, 15 rebounds and three steals, all while being scouted by an assistant coach from Division III Aurora University. “We’re just having fun out there and trying to give it our best every night,” Grady said. “We give it our all no matter what, and we feel like we’re just going to keep getting better.” Central (5-12, 0-8) gave a valiant effort, too. Despite falling behind, 15-0, during the game’s first six-plus min-

utes, the Tigers clawed their way back to a single-digit deficit by the opening possession of the second quarter. They also got a game-high 20 points from sophomore Madison Haslow. She and senior teammate Jane Johnsey (12 points) both sank four 3s, as the Tigers shot 8 for 13 from beyond the arc. The early turnovers were what doomed them. “We have just three seniors on our roster right now, and during the summer, we told the girls not to judge this season by win-loss totals,” Tigers coach Derek Crabill said. “But that doesn’t mean we can’t win games right now. We’ve been competing hard every game. We just gave Jacobs too many extra looks at the basket early. “It seems like there is always one five- or six-minute span that dooms us. Once we mature and start playing a full 32 minutes without losing focus for that one small stretch, I think we’ll see more wins. We’re trying to change the culture here and to produce a consistent, winning program. That’s not always easy. But these girls seem committed to making that happen. I was proud of their effort tonight.”

CUBS CONVENTION

By GORDON WITTENMYER gwittenmyer@suntimes.com

Pitcher Jake Arrieta is introduced at the Cubs’ annual fan convention Friday in Chicago. near the far end of the slimto-none spectrum as the Cubs prepare for the start of their title defense with spring training only four weeks away. His agent, Scott Boras, compares Arrieta to Scherzer (who left the Tigers for a seven-year,

$210 million free-agent deal after that 2014 season). The sides haven’t talked about a multiyear deal in at least a year. Neither side has plans to broach the subject anytime soon. And Arrieta, who said last season he doesn’t plan to offer

other seven-month stretch of baseball. And keep an eye on what’s certain to be a steppedup effort to get at least one young, controllable starting pitcher over the next year. “There’s some great cities out there, some good teams, but I’m not worried about that now,” Arrieta said. “I’m trying to be a good teammate and perform to the best of my ability for these guys for another season, and then we’ll go from there. “I’ll always feel a part of this organization for the rest of my life, because I came over here in ’13 and turned my career around, won a Cy Young, threw a couple no-hitters, and won a World Series. So that’s going to be hard to top wherever I go, if I leave. I’ll feel a part of this city and the organization for a long time.” Note: Two other Cubs also reached agreements on oneyear deals Friday – former closer Hector Rondon ($5.8 million) and right-hander Justin Grimm ($1.825 million). Setup man Pedro Strop ($6 million) and the Cubs ($4.6 million) exchanged arbitration figures at Friday’s deadline but expect to reach agreement far in advance of a hearing.

NOTES

Arrieta: Controversial tweet was ‘pro-United States’ By GORDON WITTENMYER gwittenmyer@suntimes.com

CHICAGO – The backlash was immediate. And to a baseball player who intentionally has sparred with opposing fans on Twitter, maybe it shouldn’t have been surprising. But Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta said his inflammatory tweet in the aftermath of the presidential election wasn’t as political as many interpreted it, judging by more than 27,000 retweets and countless comments – and certainly not bigoted, as some seemed to think. “I was simply calling out people that said they were going to leave the country if (Donald) Trump was elected,” Arrieta said. “It’s not a pro-Trump tweet; it’s not an anti-Hillary (Clinton) tweet. “I don’t consider myself a Democrat or a Republican. I want a president who’s going to do a good job. Whether it’s Obama or whether it’s Trump or Hillary.”

That context was lost in the 140-character limit of the forum when Arrieta sent this lone post-election Tweet: “Time for Hollywood to pony up and head for the border. #illhelpyoupack #beatit.” Arrieta, who did not vote, said he was surprised by the volume and largely negative response he got. David Ross “People were saying I want people deported or I’m an anti-Semite,” he said. “Why would I not like Jewish people, first of all? That doesn’t make sense. I have Puerto Rican blood in me. To think that I would want to deport people is just absurd.” It also has nothing to do with why he won’t join the rest of the team for its White House visit Monday, he said. “I would like to, but I have some other thing I have to handle,” he said, referring

to health-related issues with his family. “I feel like my stance is pretty open and honest,” he said of the thoughts behind the tweet. “It’s not to put anybody down. I was simply calling out people who have a tremendous platform of millions of followers that said they were going to leave the country if Trump was elected. I was basically calling their bluff. If you don’t want to live here, then beat it. “I’m pretty pro-United States, as I think everybody in this country should be if you want to stay here. If not, then I’m sure there’s somewhere else they can go. It was pro-United States. It was pretty simple I thought. Other people didn’t feel that way. That’s fine. Everybody can have their own opinion.” Ross in: The most popular backup catcher in baseball didn’t spend long in retirement. The Cubs hired David Ross to return this season as a “special assistant to baseball operations.” “He means so much to us,” team

president Theo Epstein said of the catcher who spent the final two years of his career with the Cubs. “He’s going to impact a lot of players really positively in this role, a lot of front office guys. He’s going to learn a lot and we’re going to learn a lot from him. “It’ll set him up well to maybe down the line decide what it is he wants to specialize in, and I’m sure he’ll thrive in that role.” Ross out: Free-agent right-hander Tyson Ross, 29, on Friday chose to sign with the Rangers over the Cubs, leaving the front office still in search of starting pitching depth in the next few weeks. Ross, who is trying to come back from thoracic outlet surgery after spending almost all of last season on the disabled list with a shoulder injury, signed a $6 million deal with the Rangers. The Cubs offered at least that much, sources said. “We went 1 for 2 on Rosses,” Epstein joked.

• Saturday, January 14, 2017

CHICAGO – Jake Arrieta won’t be making the trip to the White House with Cubs teammates Monday, but don’t read anything political into it, he said (regardless of Twitter history). It’s because of health-related family issues back home in Texas. But it will be a conspicuous absence if only because of the decisive and high-profile role the often dominant righthander played in the Cubs’ success the past two years. It also figures to offer a glimpse Monday into what the team picture might look like a year from now – if not the urgent need the front office faces in developing and acquiring some young pitchers. The 2015 Cy Young Award winner came to terms on a record arbitration-year signing Friday of $15.6375 million for 2017 – just $112,500 more than Max Scherzer’s 2014 record for a player in his final year of arbitration eligibility. But beyond that, the chances of the Cubs buying Arrieta out of free agency with a multiyear contract rank somewhere

a Chicago discount, talks like a man who knows his meteoric career as a Cub has only one more season to run. “The timeline is kind of coming to an end as far as leading up to free agency,” he said Friday as the Cubs Convention opened. “I’m here for one more year. And I’m going to enjoy every moment of it. “If [an extension] happens, great. But if it doesn’t, then I’ll become a free agent. The team’s going to do what’s best for them. We’ll see where I fit into that.” It won’t be as a third player on the roster with a nine-figure contract. Especially not with the Cubs already exceeding baseball’s luxury tax threshold last season for the first time. And it likely won’t take anything less to secure the services of Arrieta starting in 2018. “As a player, you’re told where you’re going to play your whole career until free agency,” said Arrieta, who was acquired by the Cubs in a lopsided trade with Baltimore in 2013. “So that’s a nice aspect of [free agency], to be able to decide for once where you want to go.” So enjoy the no-hit stuff and the Pilates-and-kale references for what the Cubs plan is an-

8 CAPITALS 6, BLACKHAWKS 0

Hawks a no-show in Washington By MARK LAZERUS

CAPITALS 6, BLACKHAWKS 0

mlazerus@suntimes.com WASHINGTON – There are no huge games in January. At least, not for the Blackhawks, who haven’t been in any true danger of missing the playoffs in six years, and who have won the Stanley Cup as a No. 1 seed and as a No. 6 seed. But there certainly are games that carry a little more weight than others, that offer a sterner test. And after sweeping through four middling teams on their recent homestand, the Hawks were looking forward to measuring themselves against two of their fellow contenders this weekend – the Washington Capitals, who came into Friday’s game having won seven straight, and the Minnesota Wild, who are two points back with a whopping five games in hand. Well, the Hawks didn’t measure up at all Friday night, getting blown out, 6-0, by the Capitals in what can only be described as a total team failure. They were awful with the puck, awful without the puck, and it led to the most awful loss of the season, eclipsing a 5-0 loss in Edmonton on Nov. 21. And despite the tougher opponent, this one was somehow far worse. “We just pretty much did everything we said we wouldn’t do, or weren’t supposed to do,” defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson said. “That was one of those

That was probably as outplayed as I’ve been in a long time.” The only debate after the game was whether the Hawks should stew on the loss, or flush it. “You can’t forget these games,” said a clearly fuming Jonathan Toews after the loss. “You’ve got to let them sink in;

you’ve got to learn from them. You’ve got to use it, get [ticked] off, and use it the right way, to address the glaring issues that were present.” Trevor van Riemsdyk, who was a minus-3 on the night, agreed, saying, “It’d be a waste not to try and use that in some sort of positive manner.” But coach Joel Quenneville didn’t want anything to do with it.

“Let’s forget about this one, because there’s nothing good about it,” he said. Yes, the Capitals are good, as their eight straight victories show. But the Hawks didn’t even put up a fight. The game was over after one period, with the Hawks down, 3-0, with plenty of blame to go around. The bottom two defensive pairings of Brian Campbell-Brent Seabrook and van Riemsdyk-Michal Rozsival struggled. Goalie Corey Crawford was off his game. And the Hawks had little to no puck possession, getting outshot, 14-5, and out-attempted, 30-11, in the first period. The Hawks have had similarly poor starts throughout the season, but the Capitals actually made them pay for it.

HAWKS NOTES

Better comfort level with stars helps Hinostroza By MARK LAZERUS

mlazerus@suntimes.com WASHINGTON – The first time Vinnie Hinostroza skated on United Center ice in a Blackhawks uniform and looked to his right and saw Jonathan Toews, he basically was slack-jawed. He saw Toews as a guy he grew up rooting for, a future Hall of Famer, an icon. Now, in his third stint as Toews’ left wing, Hinostroza just sees a teammate. A linemate. One of the guys. “When I was breaking in, it was still kind of weird being in this locker room and playing with guys I grew up watching,” Hinostroza said. “But now, they’re just teammates and friends. It’s easier now.” That comfort level has translated to the ice, where Hinostroza is making a push to be the long-awaited answer in that top-line left-wing slot. Friday night’s game at Washington was the fourth straight with Hinostroza along-

side Toews and Marian Hossa, and although the line has produced only one goal in the first three games, it’s showing promise. And with Ryan Hartman carving out a useful and productive niche for himself on the third line with Tanner Kero and Richard Panik, Hinostroza could get an extended look on the Vinne top line. Hinostroza The two players who filled the role well in the past were Brandon Saad and Patrick Sharp. And although Hinostroza isn’t built like either of them, he’s got the same kind of game-changing speed that complements the smart, two-way game of Toews and Hossa. “The way Hoss and I play, it’s always been that heavy game, playing down low with the puck and playing good defensively,” Toews said. “It’s nice to

have a guy like Vinnie that can finish plays off, or can skate the way he does and just create in open ice, too. I think he complements our line quite a bit.” Hinostroza got a quick look on the top line in the first week of the season, then again during the circus trip in November. But he’s more confident now, and far more comfortable. And he hopes this time, he gets to stay. “Earlier in the year, you just want to play for them and get them the puck, and you can get away from your game a little bit,” Hinostroza said. “You do whatever you can to keep them happy. But now, you know the better you play, the better they’re going to be, and the happier they’re going to be.” Russian remix: Washington’s Alex Ovechkin scored his 1,000th career point this week. And of his 546 career goals, a whole mess of them came on one-timers from the left circle – the same spot Artemi Panarin is turning into his office.

Hawks coach Joel Quenneville lamented that Ovechkin always seems to find a way to get there and get open on the power play. Panarin has the same knack, however. “With our team, [Patrick Kane] gets it [on the other side] and he absorbs a lot of attention, and whether you get that shot or the pass through to [Panarin], they have to respect [Kane] a little bit more,” Quenneville said. “You have to sometimes pick your poison, and I think when those guys are over there, those are the options you have to consider when you’re on the penalty kill.” Roster report: Michal Rozsival was back in the lineup Friday night. He was a healthy scratch in each of the past six games and 12 of the past 13. Michal Kempny was the odd-man out. The Hawks continue to have only 21 players on the roster, which allows them to bank cap space for the Feb. 28 trade deadline.


AFC DIVISIONAL PLAYOFFS: TEXANS AT PATRIOTS, 7:15 P.M. SATURDAY, CBS

By KYLE HIGHTOWER The Associated Press

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady practices Thursday in Foxborough, Mass. The Patriots will host the Houston Texans on Saturday in an AFC divisional playoff game. BLOUNT’S HEALTH son without forcing a turnover, but had 14 of their 23 total takeaways over their final six games. The Texans turned it over three times in the first meeting. Two of the turnovers – fumbles on kickoffs – led to 14 points. But big favorite or not, Patriots linebacker Dont’a Hightower said he isn’t affected by outside distractions. “You all don’t have anything to do with the game, so what you all think doesn’t really matter,” Hightower said. “I mean, you all aren’t in between the lines. So, no I’m not really – blocking out the noise is part of that.” Here are some other things to watch for in Saturday’s matchup:

weeks with an ankle injury. He finished with 73 yards and a touchdown, but was unhappy with his performance after averaging 2.4 yards a carry after averaging 4 in the regular season. “This past game ... I was kind of rusty for not playing the last two weeks,” he said. “I’m just trying to get comfortable with everything. This week, I’m looking forward to the challenge.” Miller is in his first season with the Texans after spending his first four with the Dolphins. He has been a rare bright spot on a Houston offense that has struggled to move the ball and finished the regular season ranked 10th with 1,073 yards rushing.

Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount has taken a lot of pressure off Brady this season, rushing for a New England single-season record 18 touchdowns and career-high 1,161 yards. But he might not be at 100 percent after missing two straight days of practice with an illness.

AMENDOLA RETURNS

Brady’s receiving group is as healthy as it’s been in a long time, thanks to the return of Danny Amendola to full participation in practice this week. Amendola sat out the final four regular-season games after suffering an ankle injury Dec. 4. He said he’s had no setbacks since his return. “The playoffs is what you play for,” MILLER TIME CLOWNEY’S CONTRIBUTION Amendola said. “It’s why everybody’s Houston RB Lamar Miller returned Defensive end Jadeveon Clowney’s here. It’s what we’ve been waiting on all against the Raiders after missing two breakout regular season helped Hous- year. And we’re ready to go.”

NFC DIVISIONAL PLAYOFFS: SEAHAWKS AT FALCONS, 3:35 P.M. SATURDAY, FOX

A lot has changed since previous Atlanta-Seattle matchup By PAUL NEWBERRY The Associated Press

ATLANTA – As with any rematch, there certainly are things that both teams learned about each other the first time around. Then again, so much will be different when the Atlanta Falcons host Seattle in an NFC divisional playoff game Saturday. Especially for the Seahawks. Seattle found a running game in its playoff opener, and quarterback Russell Wilson appears as healthy as he has

been all season. Yet the defense looks a lot less imposing without safety Earl Thomas, out for the season with a broken leg. Most significantly, this game will be at the Georgia Dome, costing the Seahawks perhaps the most imposing home-field advantage in the NFL. A 26-24 victory over the Falcons in Week 6 was at the Link. “We’ve got the best fans in the world,” said Wilson, no doubt mindful that Seattle is 8-1 at home this season but 3-4-1 on the road. “We don’t take that for granted.”

In addition to having the fans on their side for the rematch, the Falcons look a bit different on the field. The young defense, with as many as four rookie starters, has grown up considerably over the latter part of the season, even after a season-ending injury to its best cornerback, Desmond Trufant. Vic Beasley, in particular, established himself as one of the league’s most dominant pass rushers. “Both teams now are a better version of themselves than when we played back then,” said Falcons coach Dan Quinn, a former defensive coordinator in Seattle.

The Atlanta offense has been on point all season. Led by quarterback Matt Ryan, one of the leading contenders for MVP, the Falcons (11-5) romped to the NFC South title and a first-round bye behind the league’s highest-scoring offense, averaging nearly 34 points a game. Ryan has been especially accurate on his deep throws, an area of vulnerability for the Seahawks without their star safety. In the first meeting, Thomas had one of only seven interceptions Ryan threw all season. “His accuracy is phenomenal,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The Houston Texans face an enormous challenge against the New England Patriots on Saturday night. The Texans are 1-7 against the Patriots. They are winless in New England all time, including a shutout loss this season when Tom Brady was out because of a suspension. The Patriots enter the game as 151/2-point favorites over the visiting Texans – only the sixth time since 1966 that a team has been favored by at least 15 points in a playoff game. In the five previous occasions only one underdog – the New York Jets in Joe Namath’s Super Bowl guarantee – won the game. The Patriots said they aren’t taking anything for granted in the divisional-round matchup against the NFL’s topranked defense. But how does Houston, which lost, 27-0, in Week 3 to a Patriots team without Brady, go about beating a team that is one of the biggest favorites in playoff history? “The first thing that jumps out, you have to protect the ball. If you are going to beat the Patriots, especially in Foxborough, you can’t have any turnovers,” Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler said. “If you have turnovers, you are giving Tom additional chances to score points, ... and that’s never going to be good for your football team.” That will be easier said than done against a Patriots defense that has been creating turnovers at a high rate during the team’s seven-game winning streak. New England’s defense went three straight weeks in the middle of the sea-

ton’s defense not only stay afloat, but it entered the playoffs ranked first in the NFL despite the loss of superstar J.J. Watt to season-ending back surgery after just three games. Clowney had 16 tackles for losses, 17 quarterback hits and six sacks during the regular season, but saved his biggest play for last week. The top overall pick in the 2014 draft had his first career interception in the win over the Raiders to set up Houston’s first touchdown in the 27-14 win. Clowney and outside linebacker Whitney Mercilus, who had two sacks last week, talked about building on what they did against the Raiders this week. “I said: ‘We got to keep doing this as long as we’re going to keep winning these games. We have to go out here and make plays,’” Clowney said. “He was like: ‘I know, man, I know.’ This week I told him it’s going to be on us again.”

FVC makes format changes for next season By JOE STEVENSON

joestevenson@shawmedia.com The decreasing number of players in most Fox Valley Conference football programs has led to a format switch for next season. FVC principals approved a proposal Wednesday that will realign football to four levels – varsity, junior varsity, freshman-sophomore A and freshman-sophomore B – eliminating the sophomore level for next year. The idea is that without restrictions on classes, teams will have more roster flexibility. The new proposal calls for a 5 p.m. freshman-sophomore A game on Friday, followed by the varsity game. Then, the JV game would be at 9 a.m. Saturday, followed by the freshman-sophomore B for those schools that have enough for a second freshman-sophomore team. The FVC coaches, looking at the numbers decline, brought up the proposal to the FVC athletic directors, who in turn passed it along to the principals. The format change falls in line with what the FVC has done with other sports such as soccer and softball, Crystal Lake South AD Jason Bott said. “We’re trying to save levels, save

programs and, most importantly, give kids the opportunity to play,” Bott said. “Some other conferences are doing this. The coaches brought it forward. We’re going to see how it works.” The FVC approved the plan on a one-year basis. “The coaches and ADs felt we needed to make this change to provide the best opportunity for schools to compete at all three Brad Seaburg levels,” South principal Scott Shepard said in a news release. “Although this is not a perfect solution, it does give kids more opportunities to play. The conference will be reviewing the effectiveness of this change at the conclusion of the 2017 football season.” The format that was in place called for sophomore and varsity games Friday, freshman A and B games Saturday and JV games Monday. JV games were mainly for the juniors and seniors who did not play in varsity games. Cary-Grove coach Brad Seaburg remembers a time when many FVC teams even played six levels, with a sophomore B team as well.

from finding solutions to their problems, as long as I could make my team still fit,” Zimolzak said. “We’ll have to find games (for some levels). We’ll do that and it’ll work out fine.” The idea is that the JV team will be viewed as the No. 2 level. Zimolzak said the Red Raiders’ freshman-sophomore A team likely will be just freshmen. “We’re OK with that. They’re going to be playing against some sophomores,” Zimolzak said. “Because of the growing number of kids we have, we’ll have a sample of some good players anyway. I’m not overly concerned with wins and losses in those games, having those kids experience that is more important. It’s kind of neat for a freshman to play on a Friday night.” Seaburg saw another advantage regarding backup players. “Jason Gregoire was a sophomore and our backup quarterback,” Seaburg said. “Jason could have gone into that game right away when Quinn (Baker) broke his hand, but we had to wait because Jason had already played in the sophomore game, which was before the varsity game. By playing the JV game on Saturday, all of the varsity kids will dress and could be ready.”

“Over the last five or six years, a lot of teams are only able to play three levels – varsity, sophomore and freshman,” Seaburg said. “So by taking the year restrictions off and playing the JV level Saturday morning, we really hope we’ll get four levels of football. I like it a lot. There’s a lot of benefits to us. It’s going to help with teams that are facing decreasing numbers and allow Matt Zimolzak schools like us, or comparable size, to have more depth at the varsity level.” Seaburg likes that in his program, for example, now every player will dress for one of the Friday night games. Bott said that only South, C-G and Huntley were able to field JV teams this season. Huntley, with an enrollment of 2,866, has 400 more students than the next-largest school, Dundee-Crown (2,460). Huntley football coach Matt Zimolzak had 224 players at four levels, 172 from the sophomore class on up this season, but was empathetic with the plight of the other conference schools. “I didn’t want to stop the conference
