Most federal employees won’t get paychecks during the federal government shutdown that began Tuesday. Congressmen are among the exceptions. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Channahon, who represents Lee County, won’t accept his paycheck until the government is funded again, his spokesman said Tuesday. Rep. Cheri Bustos, D-East Moline, whose district includes

THREE CHEERS FOR DIXON YOUTH SOCCER

Number of certified instructors on the rise

Demmer planning to seek second House term

Classes could start as early as this month

Freshman says priority is controlling spending

BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 525

DIXON – A week ago, just one person in the Sauk Valley was a certified concealed-carry instructor. That number has since increased to 15. Charlie Thomas of Dixon is among them. He plans to teach classes for the concealed carry of weapons at the local VFW post. He signed up after state Rep. Tom Demmer, R-Dixon, informed the public about the state police’s process for issuing permits allowing concealed carry. “I didn’t realize they were doing it right away,” said Thomas, who is an Army retiree. He said he had nearly 50 names of people who want to take his course – about a quarter of whom are women. “The state police are moving as quickly as they can,” he said. “Once we get the rest of the story from the state police, we can start setting dates and putting the word out.” Eddie Branch, who works at Rigler’s Shooting & Sports Supply in Rock Falls, hopes to start offering classes before the end of the month. He is conducting the classes along with Howard Melchi, John Anzelmo, and Dakota Hagerman. Melchi and Anzelmo have applied for permits, but are not yet approved, Branch said. “We have to get insurance. You can’t just be an instructor and do these classes and not have insurance. You have a high risk of liability. We hope everything falls in place this month,” Branch said. Last week, the state police’s list of certified instructors consisted of 54 people, most of whom were from the Chicago area.

DIXON – At age 27 and in his first year in the Legislature, state Rep. Tom Demmer confirmed on Tuesday what was largely expected: He plans to run for a second term in 2014. Recently, the Dixon Republican told the Lee County Board that as a freshman in a “very Rep. Tom minority” party, Demmer he gets much of his information about state politics from the media. At the same time, Demmer has shown understanding with the Democratic-controlled Legislature. For instance, he said this week that while he is hopeful a conference committee can find a pension reform compromise, he is realistic about the “significant challenges” it faces. “We’ve been debating pension reform proposals for months, if not years,” Demmer said in an update to constituents. “Honest disagreements stem from honest differences in beliefs and policies. The gridlock isn’t because we’ve ignored reform; it’s because reform isn’t easy.” On Tuesday, he sent out a news release on his plan to run for a second 2-year term representing the 90th district, which is largely Republican. In 2012, Demmer won the general election with 62 percent of the vote. His Democratic opponent, Thomas Boken Jr., of DeKalb, got most of his support in DeKalb County.

Transparency, job creation top goals DEMMER

CONTINUED FROM A1

Boken said Tuesday he would not be running for any office in 2014. The 90th district includes parts of Lee, Ogle, DeKalb and LaSalle counties. In his news release, Demmer said he had held town hall meetings across the district. “My priorities are controlling government spending, promoting transparency, and supporting job creation across Illinois,� he said. He said he was the chief House sponsor of bills

that were signed into law that strengthened protection against uninsured drivers and established a review of security for schools. “As the state of Illinois faces serious issues, I know we won’t all agree on every proposed solution,� Demmer said in the news release. “But I’ll always listen to new opinions and explain the reasons for my votes.� Over the weekend, Rep. Donald Moffitt, R-Gilson, whose 74th district includes southwestern Lee County, announced that he would run for his 12th term.

Bustos: End political grandstanding REFUSES

CONTINUED FROM A1

The majority House Republicans passed a budget that would delay by a year the individual mandate under President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act, which requires everyone to get health insurance or pay a fine. That law went into effect Tuesday. Obama and the Dem-

ocratic Senate have refused to go along. With no agreement by Monday, the government shut down Tuesday, the first day of the fiscal year. “[Kinzinger] was never in favor of a government shutdown,� his spokesman, Zach Hunter, said. “Now that we are in this situation, let’s make the best of it and tackle the tough problems.� Both sides are talking

with each other about how they can resolve their disagreements, Hunter said. “It’s a chance to have an adult conversation,� he said. In her news conference, Bustos, a freshman lawmaker, urged her colleagues to “drop their political grandstanding.� “We do have reasonable lawmakers on both sides of the aisle,� she said. In July, Bustos joined 21

other Democrats in voting to delay the individual mandate by a year. Asked whether she could be described as a strong supporter of the Affordable Care Act, Bustos wouldn’t say yes or no. “It passed before I was out here. The Supreme Court has upheld it,� Bustos said. “I believe in doing [the Affordable Care Act] right, not doing it fast.�

Monuments could be closed during visit HAPPENING

CONTINUED FROM A1

“So many of these men [many of them older than 80 years old] have waited so long for this day, that we don’t feel it would be fair to make them wait any longer,� Morrison added. An Honor Flight from the Mississippi Gulf Coast region made headlines Tuesday when its members were initially fenced off from the World War II Memorial. The gates were eventually opened in an informal arrangement, and the veterans were allowed to see the memorials erected in their honor. Barriers will close off the World War II, Korean and Vietnam memorials during the shutdown, Morrison said. The Honor Flight of the Quad Cities organization is communicating with

World War II Veteran George Bloss, from Gulfport, Miss., looks out over the National World War II Memorial in Washington on Tuesday. Veterans who had traveled from across the country were allowed to visit the memorial after it had been closed because of the partial government shutdown. Some uncertainty remains about which monuments will be open to Thursday’s Honor Flight of the Quad Cities. U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley, D-Iowa, to determine which monuments in the itinerary are accessible. That task has been difficult, said Jeff Giertz, a

spokesman for Braley’s office. “National Park Service employees who oversee these memorials already have started furloughs,�

Giertz said. “We’re working to get answers.� As for whether veterans leaving from the Quad Cities will be allowed to sidestep barriers, Giertz would not say for sure. “My understanding is that the park police did not stop them, and that was an inspiring moment,� Giertz said. “There wasn’t a formal arrangement made. I won’t comment on if an informal arrangement can be made.� With that said, the bus drivers in Washington and the Honor Flight organizers are prepared to make any last-minute additions or changes, Morrison said. Memorials for Iwo Jima, the Unknown Soldier and the Air Force should be open, he said. “We should be able to do just about everything, and if we have to add something, we can,� Morrison said. “We’ll be fine, and it will be another great, successful trip.�

DATELINE DIXON

Where have we seen this before? D

IXON – The city is in a unique situation. Not long after news broke last week that the city of Dixon had accepted an out-of-court settlement for $40 million from its auditors and a bank for its responsibility in the Rita Crundwell theft, I started asking if any other cities in Illinois or in the United States have ever had anything similar happen. By Dec. 1, the city is expected to receive the $40 million payment with $10.3 million going toward legal fees. A public meeting will be scheduled this month to present options and discuss strategies for using the money. I asked Larry Frang, executive director at the Illinois Municipal League, personnel at the National League of Cities, and professors at Northern Illinois University, and they all said the same thing: “Never heard of anything quite like that.� A Google search showed nothing similar, either. I wanted to give context, find out what other cities have done in a comparable situation, and present it. What I seemingly found: Dixon is in a one-of-akind situation and will get to set the example for any other city that finds itself in this situation. Also, let’s pause for a moment. This money isn’t a bonus. Crundwell’s theft of nearly $54 million left its fair share of debt and neglected city projects.

ical satire there worth noting. For instance, it will not be constructive if residents attending the upcoming city meeting get caught up in the money, or any one idea of what the money can do. The mayor, some commissioners and the finance director have already said they want to take their time to make decisions and be responsible with the money. Let’s be sure to be watchdogs and make certain they do so.

OBITUARIES Arlyn F. Toppert PROPHETSTOWN – Arlyn Floyd Toppert, 82, of Prophetstown, died Thursday, Sept. 26, 2013, at his home. Arlyn was born March 1, 1931, at Jane Lamb Hospital in Clinton, Iowa, the son of Floyd Toppert and Edna A. (Meier) Toppert Weber, and stepfather, Warren Weber. Arlyn grew up on various farms around the Prophetstown area, including the Woodworth Bluff area and the Leon community. After the death of his father in 1932, Arlyn and his mother moved to a 40-acre farm south of Prophetstown, located on Highway 78, that belonged to his grandparents, Frank and Maretta (Wildman) Meier. After his mother remarried Warren Weber, Arlyn and his family lived on a farm located on the ProphetstownRock Falls blacktop. A few years later, they moved to a farm in Sandy Town. In 1944, his family moved to the farm that his stepfather’s parents, Samuel and Alix (Williamson) Weber, farmed. The Weber-Toppert farm was located on the Henry County-Whiteside County border, 7 miles south of Prophetstown off Highway 78. This is the same farm that Arlyn, after retiring from the Air Force in 1975, farmed until 2012. Arlyn attended various schools in the Prophetstown area. He attended first and second grades at a school on Jackson Street, east of Prophetstown, and attended third through eighth grades at Pleasant View Grade School, in the Sandy Town and Portland area. He attended Prophetstown High School and graduated in 1948. He later went on to college at Bradley University in Peoria, and received a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration in 1954. He spent 4 years in the Reserve Officers Training Corps at Bradley University, and was commissioned as an officer in June 1954. Arlyn began active duty in the Air Force as a second lieutenant in August 1954. Arlyn married Betty J. Immel on Oct. 23, 1955, in Prophetstown. She preceded him in death on Oct. 26, 2010. Arlyn served 21 years as a pilot in the Air Force. He joined the Air Force and attended pilot training at Spence Air Force Base in Moultrie, Ga., from September 1954 to May 1955, followed by jet pilot training at Webb Air Force Base in Big Spring, Texas, from May to September 1955. He graduated first in his class. After pilot training, Arlyn moved to Fairchild Air Force Base in Spokane, Wash., in October 1955. He and his family were stationed at numerous Air Force bases, including Hunter

AFB in Savannah, Ga., which included 90 days in Morocco, Africa; Ellsworth AFB in Rapid City, S.D; Sheppard AFB in Wichita Falls, Texas; Pease AFB in Portsmouth, N.H.; Castle AFB in Merced, Calif.; and Dyess AFB in Abilene, Texas. Arlyn flew B-36s, B-47s, and B-52 bombers. He served in the Vietnam War flying hundreds of missions over Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam. He and his crew were recognized by the Air Force for flying the historic 1,000th B-52 combat sortie of the Vietnam War. Throughout much of his career, Arlyn spent 1 week per month on nuclear ground alert, requiring he and his crew to be ready to launch a nuclear-weapon-loaded B-52 on a Cold War mission within minutes of notification. He later served as the 337th Bombardment Squadron Commander at Dyess AFB, where he retired at the rank of lieutenant colonel in 1975, after 21 years in the USAF. In 1975, Arlyn, along with his wife, Betty, and his children, moved back home to Prophetstown and began his second career farming the “Weber-Toppert� farm until 2012. He was a member of American Legion Post 1191 in Hooppole. Arlyn enjoyed softball, bowling, golfing, fishing, and hunting. In his later years, he was an avid reader, frequenting the Henry C. Adams Memorial Library weekly. Survivors include one daughter, Bethany (John Butemeyer, Ph.D.) Toppert, Ph.D., of Grapevine, Texas; three sons, Mark (Jane) Toppert of Mullin, Texas, Col. Kent (Gaye) Toppert of New Braunfels, Texas, and Lt. Col. Gary (Marcy) Toppert of Abilene; 11 grandchildren, Allie and Andrew Butemeyer, Rachel (Clint) Bentley, Jessica and Paige Toppert, Lindsay (Kevin) Lammers and Travis Toppert, and Sarah, Austin, Grace, and Rebecca Toppert; and one sister, Charlene Weber Hanson of Prophetstown. He was preceded in death by his wife, Betty; his parents, Floyd and Edna; and his stepfather, Warren Weber. A gathering of friends and family will be from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday at Bosma-Gibson Funeral Home in Prophetstown. Visitation will be from 10 to 11 a.m. Saturday and the funeral at 11 a.m. Saturday at Leon United Methodist Church in Prophetstown, with the Rev. Mark Curtis, pastor, officiating.

District’s strategic planning continues Data regarding cost of building maintenance to be shared soon BY DEREK BARICHELLO DBARICHELLO SAUKVALLEYCOM    EXT

DIXON – The factfinding mission continues. A strategic planning committee plans to meet and later this month tour the Rochelle school district, which has built new facilities, and another school district of similar size that has invested in its aging buildings over time. The idea is to see how each path worked for those school districts, said board member Jim Schielein. The 14-member committee is working to create a vision for district facilities covering the next 5, 10 or 15 years. It will make recommendations to the school board for possible building consolidation, land acquisition and development, and will include cost estimates, federal and state grants, and funding options. The data will serve as the foundation for the district’s long-range plan. The committee has toured each of the district’s buildings, including outdoor facilities and a special tour geared toward assessing security. A tour of Dixon High School caught the attention of some members for the amount of work it may need put into it. For example, its mechanical building has two large boilers operating inefficiently – one of them dates back to the 1956 addition. Now the committee wants to see what other districts have done when facing similar challenges. “We want to find a

The meeting are open to the public, Schielein said. Also on the committee are teachers Elizabeth Bushman and Aaron Eddy; and community members Jon Gieson, Angie Harrison, Deb Drengenberg, Dave Schreiner, Chris Hammitt, Rob LeSage, Tom Shaw and Al Duncan.

ROCK FALLS COUNCIL

City Hall roof construction to begin this week Federal government shutdown could delay Limestone Building grant, Blackert says BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com    EXT

ROCK FALLS – There are tires holding down part of the roof on City Hall in Rock Falls. Construction to repair the roof is expected to begin this week. In July, the Rock Falls City Council awarded the bid to Sterling Commercial Roofing Inc., the only company to submit a bid, for $321,700. City Administrator Robin Blackert updated the City Council on the project’s sta-

tus during its meeting Tuesday night. The work was scheduled to start Tuesday, but should still begin before the end of the week, she said. The work will include repairs and renovations to the roofs and sidewalk canopies for the municipal complex buildings, which includes City Hall, the police and fire department buildings. The city received two state grants, for $303,000 and $30,000, to help pay for the project.

FEDERAL BUDGET

Illinois faces furloughs after Tuesday shutdown

Michael Krabbenhoeft/mkrabbenhoeft@saukvalley.com

A farmer is busy harvesting soybeans in a field near the Oppold Marina south of Sterling Tuesday afternoon. The weather has soybeans behind schedule this season, so area farmers expect to do most of the harvesting work in October. Early USDA yield reports indicate that corn has held up well through the dry summer, but it’s still too early to tell how soybeans have fared.

ST. LOUIS (AP) – The U.S. government’s first shutdown in 17 years rippled across Illinois on Tuesday, forcing unpaid furloughs of thousands of civilian military workers and hundreds of others responsible for maintaining key stretches of the nation’s inland shipping system. About 1,300 Illinois National Guard employees also are off the job, as are dozens of state employees. Campers at federally maintained sites across the state were being asked to take down their tents and head out, and visitors to the former home of the state’s beloved Abraham Lincoln were turned away. Some 3,500 civilian employees – about twothirds of the non-military staff at 13,000-worker Scott Air Force Base –

reported for work but were later sent home after completing paperwork to wait out the federal shutdown. The remaining civilian employees at the base, which is east of St. Louis and the region’s biggest employer, were exempt. Air Force Col. Kyle Kremer, commander of the base’s primary air wing, said some flight operations at Scott will be curtailed, including those transporting senior government and military leaders. But operations deemed essential won’t be affected, he said. At the Great Lakes Naval Training Station north of Chicago, some 2,500 civilian workers also were sent home indefinitely Tuesday, said Senior Chief Abigail Lehtinen, spokeswoman for the site that is the Navy’s only boot camp in the U.S.

State launches health care marketplace CHICAGO (AP) – More than 71,000 people visited Illinois’ new health insurance marketplace by late Tuesday, the first opportunity to comparison shop for coverage through a system that’s a key piece of President Barack Obama’s signature health care law. But people hoping to enroll weren’t getting much further, as the federally run website experienced glitches and delays. At a health center on Chicago’s west side, workers said their goal for the day was to get just one person enrolled, but none of the people who came in were able to do so. The same was true at

the Champaign Urbana Public Health District office in Champaign. Deborah Mitchell, 57, waited about an hour at Chicago’s West Side Health Authority before giving up and making an appointment for next week. Mitchell and her 62-year-old husband have insurance but wanted to see if she could get a better rate. She also wanted to try so she can report back to the congregation at the church where her husband is a pastor. Mitchell took the delay in stride. “It’s the first day,� she said. “I’m looking for the whole week to be kind of jammed.�

Gyung Min Choi, 33, and his wife, 32-year-old Minyoun Ham, were trying to find coverage for her at the Champaign Urbana health district. She’s about 5 weeks pregnant, he said, and has no health care coverage, so she hasn’t yet seen a doctor. “We want to get some coverage for the baby’s (birth),� Choi, a materials science student at the University of Illinois from South Korea, said. He explained that their only other option would be private insurance, something he probably would struggle to afford on his $24,000-per-year income.

THE CARTOONIST’S VOICE

Joe Heller, Heller Syndicate

Recycle home electronics; do the earth a favor What we think Come to Sauk Valley Media’s front parking lot for 7 hours Saturday to recycle many types of residential electronics items and do the environment a favor.

H

ousehold electronic recycling events give people a chance to assess just how modern their electronics assemblage is. People who are getting rid of worn-out iPads, DVD players, digital converter boxes, and laptops are probably pretty up to date. But people who want to discard typewriters, tape recorders, floppy disk drives, and answering machines might be slightly behind the times. Whatever. From 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. Saturday, the Whiteside County Residential Electronics Recycling Event will accept more than 40 types of household electronic devices. The location for this event is an address we know well: 3200 E. Lincolnway, Sterling. Yes, that’s the home of Sauk Valley Media. Our front parking lot will be used for the 7-hour recycling extravaganza. What can be brought and discarded for free? Here’s the list: Answering machines, calculators, cameras, cellphones, CD rom drives, computers, cable, cable receivers, copy machines, credit card machines, digital converter boxes, digital music players, disks, CDs, DVDs, fax machines, floppy disk drives, keyboards, laptops, modems, monitors, mouses, pagers, phone systems, printers,

postage machines, power tools, projection TVs, projectors, scanners, servers, shredders, software, stereo equipment, tablets/ iPads, tape drives, tape recorders, telephones, typewriters, TVs, VCR and DVD players, video and audio tapes, video cameras, video game players, and satellite receivers. Also accepted will be aluminum cans, electric motors, electric wire, prescription bottles (please remove medicine and label), and non-alkaline rechargeable batteries. Microwave ovens will be accepted, but a $10 disposal fee will be charged. Televisions with broken tubes will not be accepted. We note that participants are eligible to enter a drawing for a new flatscreen TV, courtesy of the Sterling Walmart store. Other event sponsors are Whiteside County Solid Waste Management, Secure Recycling Services of Dixon, Kreider Services, and Appelquist Farms and Trucking of Franklin Grove. Saturday’s Residential Electronics Recycling Event is a good opportunity for people to rid themselves of outdated and broken electronics while doing the environment a favor. And if their collections of home electronics are left looking a bit more like the 21st century, so much the better.

Wanted: Candidate with plan to pay overdue bills Inexcusable that needed agencies might be closed The State Journal-Register Editorial Board, Springfield

The future of another social service agency is in jeopardy as it continues to wait on Deadbeat Illinois to make good on its backlog of unpaid bills. This time it’s the Mary Davis Home, a juvenile detention center in Galesburg that cares for children ages 10 to 16 from numerous west-central Illinois counties while they await court proceedings for legal problems. For more than a year, the state of Illinois has owed the facility about $5 million at any given time, much of which is owed from 2005 or earlier. The state currently owes the center $4.9 million.

Illinois is supposed to fund 58 percent of the detention center’s budget, authorities say, but this year state funds made up only half of that – 26 percent. Finances are getting so uncomfortably tight for the Mary Davis Home that members of the Knox County Board, which oversees the home, are considering significantly reducing its services or closing its doors for good. Any candidate who wants the job as the state’s chief executive can’t simply tell voters the state needs to pay down its backlog of bills. He must tell voters specifically how he intends to make it happen. ... It is inexcusable for needed agencies like the Mary Davis Home to struggle to stay open simply because the state won’t pay its bills.

GUEST COLUMN

Even when he loses, Quinn wins Lost ruling over pay freeze turns into a PR bonus Gov. Pat Quinn may be one of those cases of someone who still wins while losing. Quinn lost the court case last week that was filed by the two Democratic leaders after he cut money out of the budget to pay state lawmakers. His rationale for cutting the money was that lawmakers don’t deserve to get paid because they haven’t finished pension reform. A judge ruled against Quinn, and Quinn said he’ll appeal. Who knows whether he’ll prevail, but it may not matter. The decision to cut lawmaker pay was wildly popular with the public. The public may not have a high opinion of Quinn, but they don’t seem to have a much higher regard for the General Assembly as a whole. So Quinn’s shtick about lawmakers not deserving to be paid until they finish the job on pension reform fits perfectly with people who think lawmakers are largely overpaid layabouts. So even though Quinn lost the court case, he got

his PR pop out of it, and that’s pretty much what matters.

@2EBOOTMUTE ONSOMEISSUES Ever wanted to give your lawmaker a piece of your mind? You know you have. We know this because people in the media often hear from folks who want to vent about something the Legislature did that they didn’t like. One difficulty with this is that the news media don’t have a vote in the General Assembly. So, if you really want a lawmaker to get your message, you have to contact the lawmaker. The difficulty with this, in turn, is that many people have no idea how to contact their lawmakers or, worse, no idea who they are. Reboot Illinois has taken steps to address at least part of this problem. Here’s how Reboot describes itself on its website, rebootillinois.com.

“Reboot Illinois aims to encourage citizens to retake ownership of our governments. Through nonpartisan digital and social media, Reboot Illinois intends to engage citizens, giving them the information and tools they need to act on improving the jobs climate, schools, taxes and state debt.� One of those things is a new feature allowing people to contact their public officials via email on certain issues. This includes their local lawmakers, legislative leaders like Madigan and Cullerton, and the governor. More important, it also allows people to find out just who represents them in the General Assembly simply by typing their home address into the site. So far, so good. THE TRICKIER PART comes from the suggested messages to send public officials. The site has a series of issues listed covering such things as raising the minimum wage or pension reform or the progressive income tax along with a sample letter that can be sent to lawmakers. For example, you can send a message that you do not want the state to raise the minimum wage. Or you can send a mes-

sage saying that the 3 percent compounded COLAs for pension benefits must end, along with raising the retirement age for workers. Now, if you want to say you like the idea of a higher minimum wage, or that the state shouldn’t change COLAs for retirees, well, you’ll have to compose your own thoughts on that. The site doesn’t provide that option. Also, it doesn’t provide the email addresses of the public officials, so if you want to send your own thoughts, you’ll have to add a step. And you might want to take that step, even if you agree with the positions outlined by Reboot on these various issues. A fair number of lawmakers will tell you they’re a lot more impressed when someone takes the time to write or call and explain their positions in their own words rather than getting inundated with a bunch of form letters.

Polsley, media specialist for Loyola University Health System, found that the Centers for Disease Control’s website was not updating its flu surveillance, a service that helps physicians and other medical professionals track the disease’s movement nationally. “What it affects is the longer term,” Polsley said. “We’re not going

to have that knowledge of, ‘this is what’s coming; this is what’s affecting other states.’ It’s the overall big picture.” Like many, Polsley also was concerned about national landmarks that may remain closed if the shutdown extends for several weeks. She, her husband, and the couple’s 5-year-old daughter, Ellie – a “huge fan of Abraham Lincoln” – are planning a trip to Washington, D.C., later this month. Ellie has been

anticipating a visit to the Lincoln Memorial. The family had begun detailed planning of what they will visit and when. But that preparation has nearly ground to a halt, Polsley said.

IMMIGRATION

Launch sees more than a few errors Some young migrants

released from custody

Problems prevented users from creating accounts for hours

Others still held in U.S. detention

MCT News Service

WASHINGTON – The nationwide launch of the new online health insurance marketplaces got off to a rocky start on Tuesday. Websites malfunc tioned and crashed in some states and stalled in others because of a combination of technical problems and the millions of people who overwhelmed the systems trying to get their first glimpse of the new coverage offerings. The 36 states that use federal systems to run their marketplaces had online enrollment problems early and often as slow, clunky website navigation caused long delays for online users shortly after 8 a.m., when the 6-month open enrollment period for 2014 coverage began. The 3 dozen states include 27 federally run marketplaces; seven jointly run by the federal government and the states; and New Mexico and Idaho, which each operates a state-run marketplace that uses the federal computer system. Because all 36 use the same computer system, they all experienced virtually the same types of problems, such as on-screen dropdown menus that wouldn’t work properly. The malfunctions prevented users from creating individual marketplace

In Kansas City, Mo., Leonard Hopkins was unable to find coverage for his daughter after spending 90 minutes on the state’s federally run marketplace website. “I have tried calling the help center and got an automated system which couldn’t help,” he said in an email. “Tried using the ‘chat’ service and was told they would connect with someone who could help when available. Waited 10 minutes and then was disconnected.” Even the states that run their own marketplaces experienced similar

breakdowns. Hawaii’s system crashed. Online enrollment in Maryland was halted shortly after 8 a.m. because of “bottlenecking” caused by 300,000 page visits by 87,000 unique visitors by mid-afternoon, said Carolyn Quattrocki, executive director of the governor’s office of health care reform. Federal Department of Health and Human Services officials said the problems resulted from a high volume of Web users and technical glitches. “We, likewise, received word that some users were having difficulty creating accounts,” Marilyn Tavenner, administrator of the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, said in a telephone briefing Tuesday afternoon. “So

we did two things: We added capacity, and we made some adjustments to the system to handle that. And I think you’ll find it much improved today.” The problems didn’t come as a surprise. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius warned on Monday that technical issues would arise in the marketplace rollouts. But the extent of the problems caught many by surprise and left agency officials forced to play defense.

MCALLEN, Texas (AP) – Eight of the 34 young migrants who presented themselves to immigration officials at the U.S.-Mexico border without legal documents have been released from U.S. custody, a lawyer said Tuesday. The others remained in detention, but U.S. authorities haven’t said where, immigration attorney David Bennion said. Nearly all of the group who marched across one of Laredo’s international bridges Monday in colorful graduation gowns and caps say they spent long stretches of their childhoods in the U.S. after being taken there by their families at early ages and are demanding to be let back in. Bennion said seven were released from an Immigration and Customs Enforcement office around noon Tuesday. He said they were paroled from removal from the U.S. for one year after requesting asylum and are to appear before immigration judges in the coming months. He said the eighth was released late Monday. He said she was a Honduran woman who joined the group of young Mexicans who were staying at a

migrant shelter in Nuevo Laredo before staging the protest. She was trying to enter the U.S. to get medical help for her 4-year-old daughter, who is a U.S. citizen and has cerebral palsy, Bennion said. “It’s a demonstration that the government can do what we’re asking,” Bennion said, adding that he hoped the remaining 26 would see a similar outcome. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials have said privacy laws prohibit them from discussing individual cases. The protesters were following the path of the “Dream Nine,” a smaller group that attempted to enter the U.S. at Nogales, Arizona, in July. That group requested asylum and was released after about 2 weeks in detention to await their turns before a judge. At the heart of both groups’ protest was a change to U.S. immigration regulations made in June 2012 giving something called deferred action to immigrants who were brought to the country illegally as children. Those who were in the U.S. at that time and met a list of criteria could apply for a renewable twoyear deferment and work authorization.

Mr. Right’s only wrong is hanging out with exes Dear Abby: I have been dating Mr. Right for 2 years. “Phil” is the man I want to spend my life with. When we are together privately, everything is perfect. The problem is, Phil hangs out with his old college buddies every few weeks or months, and it often involves his ex-girlfriends. They don’t hang out alone. There is always at least one other person there. The situations usually include drinking, which worries me. In my opinion, Phil should not be seeing his exes, even though his college friends are still buddies with them. Phil doesn’t understand why

dearABBY Abigail Van Buren’s (Jeanne Phillips) column appears during the week through Universal Press Syndicate.

I think this is so wrong. I am uncomfortable and think he should avoid these situations. Am I overly jealous, or should I call it quits because he won’t respect my feelings on the matter? – Home Alone in Kokomo

Dear Home Alone: I don’t think you are overly jealous, but I do think you may be overly insecure. Has Phil given you any reason to think he has cheated on you? If not, you should trust that he is doing nothing more than hanging out occasionally with old friends. You say he is encountering exes (plural) when he sees his male friends. If it was just one, you might have cause to worry. Remember, these women are exes for a reason. Unless you want to be another ex, you should lighten up because insecurity and possessiveness are unattractive traits. Dear Abby: We have

lived next door to a couple, “Evie” and “Earl,” for 5 years. I thought we were good friends. Over the years, I vented to Evie about my relationship with my daughter-in-law, “Cate.” I watch my two grandchildren most of the week and have complained to her about Cate’s poor parenting skills. Last summer, my daughter-in-law made a concerted effort to befriend Evie, and they now socialize together – even though Cate flirted with Earl and Evie didn’t like it. This has pretty much killed my friendship with Evie and worsened my relationship with my daughter-in-law. This has affected me

emotionally and physically to the point that I either want to cut off ties with my son and/or move – neither of which is really an option. I have tried talking to both parties to no avail. I don’t know what to do. Please help. – Betrayed in Pennsylvania Dear Betrayed: If you had concerns about your daughter-in-law’s parenting skills, the person you should have discussed them with was Cate. And if Evie was as good a friend as you thought, she wouldn’t be hanging around with your daughter-in-law to the exclusion of you. I assume that you, your

son, and Cate are still on speaking terms and you’re still watching the kids “most of the week.” If that’s not true and you have been cut off by everyone, then the most important thing you need to do is take care of your mental and physical health. Accept that Evie will never be your buddy again and start socializing with others. If you are no longer watching your grandchildren, your son and Cate will have to make alternative arrangements for childcare, which will cost them money they may be reluctant to spend. Then it will be in their interest as well as yours to make peace.

fter a long day, who hasn’t stumbled into the grocery store without the faintest idea of what to put on the table, when suddenly the tempting whiff of a freshly roasted chicken puts everything into perspective? And although a rotisserie chicken is great served on its own, it lends itself to so many dinner options. Casseroles, pizza, salads ... Here are 25 easy dinner ideas incorporating rotisserie chicken. These aren’t formal recipes but rough outlines you can

tweak to suit your family’s or friends’ tastes. Most involve only a few ingredients, and almost all can be made in an hour or less. No matter your skill level in the kitchen, there’s something here for everyone. And with so many ideas, you’re bound to find something to please even the most picky dinner guest. 1. Quesadillas: Soften chopped onion and bell pepper or mushrooms on the stove, then combine with chopped chicken and cheese in a folded tortilla and toast on a griddle or large skillet until the cheese melts.

Chicken tortilla soup is another great idea for using leftover rotisserie chicken. 2. Chopped salad: Toss chopped chicken, apple, red onion, raisins, and almonds in a bowl. Toss with a dressing made of mayonnaise, sour cream or yogurt flavored with a touch of wine or cider vinegar, mustard and

aking exercise a habit is one of the most important things you can do for your health. It benefits you physically and mentally. It specifically reduces your risk for heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and depression. It can help with managing weight, although I know from experience that you can eat away the benefits of any good fitness program. But like anything else, it is possible to overdo it. Too much exercise, or overtraining, can lead to injury and illness. Serious athletes who exercise too hard or too long may even succumb to a condition referred to as “overtraining syndrome.� Chronic overtraining also can have long-term health consequences. For example, at the American College of Sports Medicine’s annual conference in 2012, researchers reviewed the

results of several studies that focused on the health of runners. They found that the runners in one study who trained continuously and extensively for marathons, ultra-marathons, Ironman competitions, etc., had a higher incidence of heart damage. The doctors who reviewed the research pointed out that there are very few people who push the envelope this hard, but the evidence is mounting on the ill effects of chronic training for extreme endurance events. Don’t use this as an excuse for not exercising, though. Another finding of this research

was that all runners had a 19 percent lower risk of dying from any cause than nonrunners. But they also found the risk was no different between runners who ran shorter distances on fewer days per week and those who trained more often or for longer distances. This is good news for people who are discouraged about exercising because they think they must spend hours at the gym, pool, or track. The truth is you can achieve health benefits from as little as 30 minutes of exercise each day and it doesn’t even need to be done all at once. Taking a couple of quick 15-minute walks after lunch and dinner would do it. If you are more ambitious and want to achieve a greater level of strength, endurance, and fitness, then go for it. Just be sure to allow your body time to rest and recover after strenuous exercise. Taking a day off can leave you with more strength and energy for the next workout.

rmed with Certo instructions to make jam and jelly, my head began to spin. I started to feel tired, and then I let out a big sigh. Next, I turned over the paper. There it was â&#x20AC;&#x201C; quick and easy freezer jam and jelly directions. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to see anything else. My family has been enjoying homemade strawberry jam for years. Our tradition is to gather local strawberries and then tackle the jam. While the idea of canning causes me to panic, this quick and easy jam is a nosweat process. Waist-watchers can use the jam by keeping an eye on their servings: 50 calories per tablespoon. To get started, wash and rinse 1- to 2-cup size plastic containers with tight-fitting lids. 1. Prepare strawberries by discarding the stems and crushing them. Crush 1 cup at a time using a potato masher for best results. If using a

The strawberry jam will bring back memories of summer when thawed and used during the winter months. food processor, pulse to very finely chop. Do not puree. Jam should have bits of fruit. 2. Measure the exact amount of prepared fruit into a large bowl. 3. Measure the exact amount

of sugar into a separate bowl. Reducing sugar or using sugar substitutes will result in set failures. Try Sure-Jell for less or no sugar needed recipes; fruit pectin for no- or low-sugar jams and jellies.

4. Stir sugar into prepared fruit. Mix well. Let stand 10 minutes; stir occasionally. 5. Stir pectin into lemon juice in a small bowl. 6. Stir pectin mixture into prepared fruit. Stir constantly

until sugar is completely dissolved and no longer grainy, about 3 minutes. A few sugar crystals may remain. 7. Pour into prepared containers, leaving 1/2 inch space at top for expansion during freezing; cover. 8. Let stand at room temperature 24 hours until set. Refrigerate up to 3 weeks. Otherwise, store in freezer for up to a year. Thaw in refrigerator. The strawberries can be replaced with other fruits. The Certo freezer recipes also cover apricot, blueberry, cherry, peach, mango, red raspberry or blackberry, raspberrypeach, and strawberry-blueberry jams; and grape, grapefruit and hot pepper jellies.

DISTRIBUTION NOTICE: SSB2716

DIXON AREA RESIDENTS CASH IN: Pictured above and protected by armed guards are the Overstuffed Money Bags containing 10 individual Vault Bags full of money that everyone is trying to get. That’s because each Vault Bag is known to contain over 100 U.S. Gov’t issued coins some dating back to the early 1900s.

State zip codes determine who gets free Silver coins Vault Bags loaded with U.S. Gov’t issued coins are up for grabs as thousands of U.S. residents stand to miss the deadline to claim the money; now any resident of Illinois who finds their zip code listed below gets to claim the bags of money for themselves and keep any valuable coins found inside by covering the Vault Bag fee within the next 2 days ILLINOIS - The phone lines are ringing off the hook. That’s because for the next 2 days Vault Bags containing valuable U.S. Gov’t issued coins are actually being handed over to Dixon area residents who find their zip code listed in today’s publication. “Now that the bags of money are up for grabs Illinois residents are claiming as many as they can get before they’re all gone. That’s because after the Vault Bags were loaded with over 100 U.S. Gov’t issued coins the bags were sealed for good. But, we do know that some of the coins date clear back to the early 1900s, including: Silver, scarce, highly collectible, and currently circulating U.S. Gov’t issued nickels, dimes and quarter dollars, so there’s no telling what you’ll find until you sort through all the coins,” said Timothy J. Shissler, Chief Numismatist for the private World Reserve. The only thing residents need to do is find their zip code on the Distribution List printed in today’s publication. If their zip code is on the list, they need to immediately call the National Claim Hotline before the 2-day order deadline ends. Everyone who does is being given the 90% pure Silver Walking Liberty coin for free just by covering the fee for each Vault Bag loaded with over 100 U.S. Gov’t issued coins for only $99 each as long as they call before the deadline ends. Since this advertising announcement can’t stop dealers and collectors from hoarding any of the valuable coins they can get their hands on, the World Reserve had to set a strict limit of ten Vault Bags per resident. “Coin values always fluctuate and there are never any guarantees, but those who get in on this now will be the really smart ones. Just think what some of these coins could be worth someday,” said Shissler. Each Vault Bag is loaded in part with highly sought after collector coins dating clear back to the 1900s including a 90% pure Silver Walking Liberty Half Dollar, an Eisenhower Dollar, some of the last ever minted U.S. Dollars, Kennedy Half Dollars, Silver Mercury Dimes, rarely seen Liberty ‘V’ Nickels, nearly 100 year old Buffalo Nickels and a big scoop of unsearched currently circulating U.S. Gov’t issued nickels, dimes and quarter dollars. “We’re bracing for all the calls because there are just hours left for residents to get the Silver Walking Liberty coin free,” he said. So, Dixon area residents lucky enough to find their zip code listed in today’s publication need to immediately call the National Claim Hotlines before the 2-day deadline ends to get the Silver Walking Liberty coin free. If lines are busy keep trying, all calls will be answered. N

VALUABLE: 90% PURE SILVER

FREE: WALKING LIBERTY RED BOOK COLLECTOR VALUE $15 to $325

ENLARGED TO SHOW DETAIL. YEAR VARIES 1916-1947

How to claim the bags of U.S. Gov’t issued coins: Read the important information

listed below about claiming the Vault Bags. Then call the National Claim Hotline before the 2-day deadline ends at: 1-888-282-6742 Who gets to claim the bags of money: Thousands of U.S. residents stand to miss the deadline to claim the money. Now Dixon area residents who find the first two digits of their zip code listed in today’s publication and beat the 2-day deadline get to claim the bags of money for themselves and keep all the U.S. Gov’t issued coins found inside. I keep calling and can’t get through: That’s because each Vault Bag is guaranteed to contain a free Silver Walking Liberty coin and just that one coin alone could be worth $15-$325 in collector value. So thousands of residents are calling to claim as many Vault Bags as they can get before they’re all gone. In fact, since the Vault Bag fee is just $ 99 everyone is claiming as many bags as they can before the deadline ends. So if lines are busy keep trying, all calls will be answered. How much are the Vault Bags worth: Coin values always fluctuate and there are never any guarantees, but here’s why Illinois residents are claiming as many Vault Bags as they can get before they’re all gone. After the Vault Bags were loaded with over 100 U.S. Gov’t issued coins including: Silver, scarce, highly collectible, and a big scoop of unsearched currently circulating U.S. Gov’t issued coins the bags were sealed for good. But we do know that some of the coins date back to the 1900s. That means there’s no telling what you’ll find until you sort through all the coins. So you better believe at just $ 99 the Vault Bag fee is a real steal since the free Silver Walking Liberty coin alone could be worth from $15 to $325 in collector value. Are the Silver Walking Liberty coins really Free: Yes. All Dixon area residents who beat the 2-day deadline are instantly being awarded a Silver Walking Liberty coin issued by the U.S. Gov’t between 1916-1947 free with each Vault Bag they claim. Why is the Vault Bag fee so low: Because thousands of U.S. residents have missed the deadline to claim the money the World Reserve has re-allocated Vault Bags that will be scheduled to be sent out in the next 2 days. That means the money is up for grabs and now any resident who finds the first two digits of their zip code on the Distribution List below gets to claim the bags of money for themselves and keep all the U.S. Gov’t issued coins found inside. Each Vault Bag fee is set at $149 for residents who miss the 2 day deadline, but for those who beat the 2-day deadline the Vault Bag fee is just $ 99 as long as they call the National Claim Hotline before the deadline ends at: 1-888-282-6742.

Declarer’s fall can help other players

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

Winston Churchill said, “Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.” When a declarer stumbles, making a mistake, it is the job of the defenders to make sure that he falls, unable to pick himself up and still make his contract. In today’s deal, which, yes, bears a remarkable resemblance to yesterday’s, South ended in four spades. And when it was originally played, two errors were made, which balanced each other out. West led the diamond king (under which East accurately dropped the jack to show the 10 as well). South ducked, took the next diamond with his ace, drew two rounds of

trumps ending on the board, played a heart to his ace, and led a second heart. When West played the queen, declarer ducked in the dummy. Now West cashed the club

ace to stop an overtrick. What were the two mistakes? In the modern style, North responded three spades, showing a weak hand with four-card spade support. With a game-invitational hand, North would have cue-bid three clubs. This style allows responder to bid either constructively or obstructively. Now to the errors. First, as we saw yesterday, when South led a low heart from the board at trick five, he should have put in his 10. East would have been kept off the lead. Second, when South won with his heart ace, West should have realized that he needed to get his partner on play for a club lead through South. West should have sacrificed his heart queen under South’s ace. Then South would have fallen on his face. © 2013 UFS

WASHINGTON

Manufacturing grows at best pace in 2.5 years New orders received at healthy pace, but slower than August WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; U.S. factory activity expanded last month at the fastest pace in 2 ½ years, an encouraging sign that manufacturing could lift economic growth and hiring in the coming months. The Institute for Supply Management, a trade group of purchasing managers, said Tuesday that

its manufacturing index rose in September to 56.2, the highest since April 2011. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up from 55.7 in August and the fourth straight increase in the index. A reading above 50 indicates growth. Manufacturers added jobs last month at the fastest pace in more than a year and ramped up production, the survey showed. They also received new orders at a healthy pace, though slower than in August. U.S. factories are show-

ing signs of picking up after slumping earlier this year. A modest recovery in housing and strong auto sales are pushing up demand for steel and other metals, auto parts, furniture and appliances. Economists said the strong figures suggest that the annual growth rate in the July-September quarter could be healthier than current forecasts of about 2 percent. The index has averaged 55.8 in the past 3 months, up from 50.2 in the April-June quarter.

Sterling forward secures tie with Leafs

STERLING – Carlos Gallardo wasn’t sure how he got there, but as he got back up from the Sterling Chevrolet Field turf, the Sterling senior knew he wasn’t going to be on the sideline for long. It was a good thing for the Golden Warriors that he passed all the concussion tests and was cleared to return to Tuesday’s match against the Geneseo Maple Leafs. In a back-andforth tussle one Tony would expect Diaz from the NorthSterling freshman ern Illinois Big 12 West coleaders, Gallardo’s equalizer with 11:41 left in the match secured a 3-3 tie at Roscoe Eades Stadium. “It’s like that every time we play,” Geneseo senior Ethan Radue said. “It’s always a battle between two rivals, and I think both teams really look forward to the chance to play with so much at stake.” Sterling’s 24-match conference win streak was snapped, but the Warriors still have not lost in their last 25 NIB-12 West matches.

ERIE – Newman coach Val Gassman forgot to bring the traveling trophy that went with winning the 2012 Three Rivers boys meet. As it turned out, it wasn’t an issue. The Comets placed five runners in the top seven to cruise to the team title Tuesday at Lake Erie Golf Course. Newman finished with a mere 20 points, ahead of runner-up Bureau Valley, which had 71. Hall (88), Erie-Prophetstown (90) and Sherrard (137) rounded out the top five squads. “I think our split today is probably the best it’s been all year,” Gassman said.

ERIE – One by one, in reverse order, former ErieProphetstown cross country coach Joel Geisz announced the team finishers at the Three Rivers girls meet. When he got to the runner-up, he said, “second, with 51 points, Erie-Prophetstown.” That elicited a roar from the last team standing: Amboy. The Clippers finished with 48 points to edge the Panthers on Tuesday at Lake Erie Golf Course. “I knew we were a top contender, but I honestly was

surprised that we pulled it off,” sophomore Jennifer Popovich said. “This feels really, really good, especially because it’s the first year of the new conference and it really counts for something now, with 11 teams instead of the four or five that we’ve always had,” Amboy coach Bob

Halberg said. “It’s a big, big win for us.” Halberg has been the coach at Amboy for 8 years, and he noted his team’s previousbest finish was third – and that was way before squads like Sherrard, Orion, Rockridge, St. Bede, Hall and Princeton joined the fray. “I don’t normally go out and talk to them in the front when they’re warming up,” Halberg said, “but today I did go out and tell them this was a chance to make history. It’s cool that it came true.”

One uphill battle won Rosengren’s ace highlights meet at Spring Creek BY DAN WOESSNER dwoessner@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 555

SPRING VALLEY – Morrison golf coach Ben Sondgeroth stood behind the ninth hole Tuesday as the last group of the day sent its tee shots toward the green 175 yards away at Spring Creek Golf Course. Amboy’s Griffin Kozeal’s tee shot avoided the power lines that cross in front of the tee box and dropped the ball a few feet Philip Marruffo/pmarruffo@saukvalley.com from the pin. Amboy’s Griffin Kozeal tees off Tuesday at Spring Creek Golf Sondgeroth, who was joined by Course during the Three Rivers Tournament. Kozeal was the top other coaches at the Three Rivers Meet, applauded the shot. local finisher, placing fourth with an 81.

“What a shot,” Sondgeroth said. “That’s probably the shot of the day.” Sondgeroth was quickly corrected. Unbeknownst to him, Newman golfer Shawn Rosengren had delivered the shot of the day on the 167-yard seventh hole about an hour earlier.

Rosengren sank a hole in one. He used a 9-iron on the shot. Like Sondgeroth, Rosengren didn’t see the shot, either. “The hole was uphill, so when I shot it, I didn’t know that it went in because I couldn’t see it,” Rosengren said. “When I got to the top of the hill, I was kind of scared to look into the cup. It was an awesome feeling, and it got me really excited. “That’s sort of the thing about it. I was playing pretty good for me before that. Afterward, I was just so excited that I didn’t play as well on the last few holes.”

Step 1? Check Hawks begin title defense with third-period flurry

BY JAY COHEN !03PORTS7RITER

CHICAGO â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Brandon Saad, Johnny Oduya and Marian Hossa scored in the third period, and the Chicago Blackhawks kicked off their Stanley Cup title defense with a 6-4 victory over the Washington Capitals on Tuesday night. Patrick Kane, Brent Seabrook and Brandon Bollig also scored for Chicago. Corey Crawford made 28 saves, including a couple of huge stops when the Blackhawks killed off a late 5-on-3 power play. Mikhail Grabovsky had three goals and an assist in his first game since he signed with Washington in August. Alex Ovechkin had a goal and an assist, but the Capitals dropped their opener for the second straight season. Grabovsky had consecutive power-play goals in the third, lifting Washington to a 3-2 lead with 14:44 left. But Saad finished a beautiful give-and-go with Michal Handzus, and Oduya converted a long slap shot at 13:53 to put the Blackhawks ahead to stay. Oduya caught a fortunate break on his 32nd birthday when his fluttering shot went in off the glove of goalie Braden Holtby on its way to the net. Hossa finished the scoring when he was dragged down from behind as he skated toward an empty net in the final seconds,

communicate with both opponents, with the Department of Defense announcing Tuesday that all intercollegiate athletics at the service academies are suspended due to the shutdown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re] certainly monitoring and engaging with the schools, but beyond that there does not

appear to be a lot we can do,â&#x20AC;? Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick said in an email. Barring complications that abbreviate the timeframe â&#x20AC;&#x201C; though Notre Dame would be the school doing the traveling to Air Force, anyway, in the first of the two games â&#x20AC;&#x201C; this shutdown would have to be the longest the country has seen in 4 decades in order to impact the games. The longest such break of the past 4 decades was a 21-day shutdown between 1995 and 1996. Asked about potential Football Championship Subdivision teams serving as emergency replacements â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and knowing full well Notre Dameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s steadfast refusal to dip into that level for football foes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Irish coach Brian Kelly offered a somewhat tonguein-cheek reply. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to look at an FCS opponent,â&#x20AC;? Kelly said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but I would be one vote in a room with probably a lot of noâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.â&#x20AC;?

Sterling extends NIB-12 streak to 25 RECOVERS

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The No. 1 thing I hate is losing,â&#x20AC;? Gallardo said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and it means a lot to keep this not-losing streak going. With all the things that can happen during matches, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re proud that we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let one slip away in a long time.â&#x20AC;? It looked like this might just be the one that did get away from the Warriors (7-2-4, 4-0-1), but neither team could hold an advantage for long. Tony Diazâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s left-footed shot off Gallardoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pass crossed the face of the goal and found the back of the net at the 24:20 mark of the first half, but the Maple Leafs (8-4-2, 4-0-1) answered right back when Griffin Welfer converted a loose ball in front of the Sterling net into a goal at the 21:54 mark. Diaz again gave the Warriors the lead at the 31:13 mark in the second half, when a Sterling throwin rattled around in front of the Geneseo goal before Diaz poked it past Leafs keeper Josh Morton for his 22nd goal of the season. But Geneseo responded quickly again, this time on Radueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s header off an Adam Stenzel center

Irish to keep tabs on government Notre Dame is not scheduled to play Air Force for another 25 days. The annual tilt with Navy is a month away. But like many, the Irish may be hopeful for a swift end to the U.S. government shutdown, lest two of the games on the schedule fall into unexpected peril. The shutdown jeopardizes this weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s football games â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Air Force at Navy and Army at Boston College. A Pentagon spokesman, Army Col. Steve Warren, says the suspension is being reviewed by Pentagon lawyers to determine whether funds used for these activities are congressionally appropriated funds. The U.S. Naval Academy said in a statement that a decision will made Thursday on whether the Midshipmen will play Saturday. At this point, all Notre Dame can do is wait and watch and

pass with 28:37 to play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both teams have a lot of talent and the ability to finish around the goal, and you really saw that tonight,â&#x20AC;? Geneseo coach Ian Kline said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you have two offenses that like to attack, there are going to be a lot of opportunities to score on the counter-attack.â&#x20AC;? The Warriors proved their ability to do the same. Radueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crossing pass from the left side of the penalty box found Hunter DeSplinterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foot on the right post, and the Leafs took their first lead of the match with 12:58 remaining. One minute, 17 seconds later, Gallardo tied the match at 3 when he corralled Diazâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pass into the scrum in front of the goal and found the back of the net. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know that neither team is going to dominate this matchup,â&#x20AC;? Diaz said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;so we came prepared to do whatever we had to do to not lose.â&#x20AC;? Gallardoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 15th goal of the season was even sweeter, considering that there was a brief moment where his teammates werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be in the game down the stretch. The quarterback of the Warriorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offensive breaks, Gallardo missed a few minutes in the second half

after sacrificing his body to block a kick by Morton. As he was chasing a pass ahead, Gallardo saw the Geneseo keeper beat him to the ball. But instead of stopping, Gallardo kept sprinting toward Morton, and leapt into the air to try and knock down the kick. The ball glanced off Gallardo, who hit the turf hard and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get up for a minute. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I saw a 50-50 ball, and the goalie beat me to it,â&#x20AC;? Gallardo explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I jumped in front of him, and the next thing I knew I was on the ground. It stung, but I felt fine, and it meant a lot to me to help my team and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a lot happier with the tie than a loss.â&#x20AC;? After trainers helped Gallardo to the sideline, his return to the match was swift. He took another hard spill later on, but stayed on the field. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He gives us a lot of motivation, and means a lot to our team,â&#x20AC;? Diaz said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To see him back out there, and to know that he was going to create something good for us, that makes a huge difference.â&#x20AC;? Morton saved seven of Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 12 shots, while Warrior keeper Jared Fernandez made six stops on 18 Geneseo shots.

BV’s Weidner out with injury CLIP

CONTINUED FROM B1

Leading the Clippers was freshman Megan Grady, who blazed to a time of 19 minutes, 19 seconds over the 3-mile Erie course. It was a new record for Three Rivers meets held at Erie, shattering the previous mark of 19:48 set by Newman’s Emilie Barton in 2008. “I didn’t think I was going that fast, honestly,” Grady said. “I’m so happy, I’m shaking.” Grady needed about 1½ miles to shake the only runner who posed much of threat, ErieProphetstown’s Corrie Reiley. Reiley finished in 20:29, while the thirdplace finisher, Princeton’s Zoe Mead, crossed the line in 20:50. “[Reiley] just kind of slowed down,” Grady said. “I was like, OK. I just kept my pace and kept going.” “I went in with the mindset I was going to stay right behind her the whole race, and then try to beat her the last 800, because I’m a pretty good 800 runner,” Reiley said. “That second mile, she definitely gained a lead on me.” Popovich finished fourth in 21:00.9. She was followed by Erin Hosto

(10th, 21:57), Caitlin Boers (15th, 22:31) and Brenna Rieker (29th, 23:46.9). The top 15 overall finishers earn all-conference honors. Amboy’s entire lineup consisted of freshmen and sophomores. “These next 4 years are going to be good, I have a feeling,” Grady said. The runner-up finish for Reiley was her second in a row in the conference meet. She finished behind Bureau Valley’s Regan Weidner a year ago in Walnut. Weidner is sidelined with a leg injury. Backing up Reiley were Brooke Remley (7th, 21:41.9), Emily Hanover (11th, 22:01.8), Rebecca Arnolts (22nd, 23:13.9) and Mikayla Bolton (23rd, 23:24.8). “It’s definitely disappointing, because we won last year,” Reiley said, “and we wanted to do it again on our home course. They definitely earned it. They were really good.” Bureau Valley was third with 82 points. Leading the Storm were Helena Arnadottir (12th, 22:08.5) and Riley Francis (17th, 22:46.9). Newman did not field a full team, but had a pair Michael Krabbenhoeft/mkrabbenhoeft@saukvalley.com of all-conference runners in Halie Simpson Bureau Valley’s Veronica Riggen (left) and Katelin John(5th, 21:24) and Teagan son run next to each other during the Three Rivers Meet McKenna (9th, 21:52.2). on Tuesday at Lake Erie Country Club.

“I’m so thrilled. They did absolutely brilliantly. They ran together as a pack for the first mile, which is what they had planned to do,” Gassman said. “Everybody stepped up today.” Bryson Reyes led the Comets with a time 16 minutes, 18.2 seconds, good for second place behind Hall’s Al Baldonado, who won in 16:17. Kewanee’s Rolando Aguilar finished third in 16:31, then came a pack of four Newman runners: Chris Ahlers (16:34), Quincy Coomes (17:00), Drew

Rosengren (17:01) and Micah Trancoso (17:25). “We were all together at the first mile,” Reyes said, “and that felt great. The way we finished all together, with that great pack, that just felt amazing. We did really well with that.” With the team race all but decided, the only real drama was who the top individual was going to be. Baldonado and Reyes were neck-and-neck down the stretch, and it was the Red Devil who had the goods. “At the 200-meter mark, I could hear his coach telling him, ‘Go now, go now,’ so it was like, I have to go now with him,” said Baldonado,

who also has won titles at Oregon and Kewanee this season. “He was getting ahead of me, but when we turned for the finish, I gave it everything I had and pumped my arms as hard as I could.” “I know he has a great kick,” Reyes said, “and I don’t have that great of finishing speed. I think it will gradually get better by the end of the season, but he has a better finish than I do. I’m not disappointed with how I ran today.” The top 15 finishers earn all-conference honors, and Bureau Valley had a trio in that category. They were Daniel Trone, 8th in 17:38; Kane Eastwood, 11th in 17:54; and Andrew

Smith, 15th in 18:12. The Storm are competing without their top runner, Ryan Taylor, who injured his foot in PE class 2 weeks ago. His status for the rest of the season is unclear. Erie-Prophetstown also landed three athletes on the all-conference team. They were Lucas White, 9th in 17:44; Tyler DeVault, 10th in 17:52; and Braedon Bonnell, 12th in 17:58. Newman’s Andrew Kobbeman was 14th in 18:12 to also nab a spot on the all-conference team, though he didn’t count toward his team total. The top performer for Amboy was Skylar Wheeler, 24th in 19:12.7.

Step away from ledge, Bears fans

P

erhaps Bears fans got just a bit spoiled by the team’s 3-0 start, or maybe the Kool-Aid just tasted so good that you’re in mourning now that it’s turned to vinegar. Whatever the reason, it seems to me there’s been a tremendous overreaction around town to the Bears’ 40-32 loss to the Detroit Lions. Relax guys, this Bears glass is absolutely still half full. Do you have any idea how hard it is to win four straight in the NFL? I know I had them at 3-1 at this point, although I did see them losing to Cincinnati and beating Detroit. If you look at the full body of work, the offense is definitely ahead of where I thought it would be and, other than Sunday in Detroit, the defense actually has been, too. In all reality, the Bears’ first real test is this Sunday at Soldier Field, where the 4-0 Saints will be easily the best team the Bears have faced to date. And for the first time this season, we get to see just how they’ll handle a little adversity. How do they bounce back from getting their butts kicked? Let’s start with the simple fact that this Bears defense is never going to be as good as it was the past few years. There are just too many deficiencies on the defensive line, and questions continue to mount about pass coverage in the nickel. But if they continue to generate takeaways at the rate they have, and generate points off those turnovers, they will be competitive – and even win a few more games they shouldn’t. What can’t happen is they can’t let teams run on them the way the Lions did. “Probably the most disappointing part of watching the film is a lot of their big runs came against eightman fronts,” linebacker Lance Briggs said. “We weren’t even in Cover 2. Just missed tackles and not being in our gaps, it’s that simple.”

hubARKUSH Shaw Media "EARS analyst. He can be reached at harkush@ shawmedia. com

I asked Briggs if guys were getting pushed out of their gaps, if they didn’t know where they were supposed to be, or if they were losing focus, and his answer was that it definitely can be fixed. “You’ve just got to be disciplined,” he said. “We have to be disciplined, and we have to be fundamentally sound. It’s just going back to the drawing board.” Let’s assume Briggs is right. There are still the problems on offense, and Jay Cutler’s meltdown to fix. Roberto Garza insists it’s not all on Cutler. “It starts with all five guys up front,” Garza said. “We’ve got to stop the penetration and allow Jay to not have to scramble as much as he had to. He’s got to be able to step up in the pocket and finish his throwing motion.” Garza and Briggs spoke after the loss because they are captains, and it’s what captains do. Their explanations were reasonable – and they are correct. If the Bears are talented enough, they can fix what was wrong in Detroit, because they were physical mistakes and it is possible it was just a bad day. I have my doubts they are talented enough on the defensive line, or that they have all the weapons they need on offense to be champions. And, of course, we once again have no idea which Jay Cutler will show up on a given Sunday. But with a 3-1 start and first place in the division, they’ve certainly earned the benefit of the doubt that Detroit was a pot hole and not a crater. How they respond against a Saints team that does look championship ready will tell us a lot more than the loss to the Lions did. AP

Lance Briggs knows the Bears defense has to improve in order for the team to succeed.

Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina laughs during practice Tuesday in St. Louis. The Cardinals are set to host Game 1 of the NL division series Thursday against the Pirates, 6-2 winners over the Reds in NL Wild-Card game.

ST. LOUIS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; This time last year, the St. Louis Cardinals had no chance to exhale, and things ended up working out pretty well. Still, they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to go through that tension again. Instead of hustling off somewhere for an elimination game, the NL Central champion Cardinals earned a day off Monday.

Risk-takers Despite home-field advantage being in the balance entering Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regular-season finales, the Cardinals:

Lance Lynn said after working the division clincher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re happy we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be in that.â&#x20AC;? Last year, the Cardinals grabbed the second wild card on the final day of the season and almost made the World Series. They won in Atlanta and rallied from six runs down in Washington in the deciding game of the division series. Their bid for a repeat title evaporated when they squandered a 3-1 lead in the NLCS against the Giants. Wainwright (19-9, 2.94 ERA) is one of two holdovers from the rotation last October and is back in top form, going 4-0 in his last five starts. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be on regular rest for Game 1 Thursday and coming off light duty in

his final regular-season start, and should be ready for a Game 5 if needed. No doubt heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d prefer to face the Pirates. The Reds pounded Wainwright in consecutive starts in late August and early September. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those guys have been neck and neck with us the whole season,â&#x20AC;? Carpenter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fitting that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to match up with one of them.â&#x20AC;? The Cardinals hit an astounding .330 with runners in scoring position, led by Allen Craigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major league-leading .454 mark. Carpenter had a breakout season by leading the majors in hits, runs, doubles and multi-hit games, and Molina had a career-best 80 RBIs along with the usual Gold Glove-level game behind the plate.

Go outside your comfort zone in terms of getting involved in the year ahead. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t voice your opinion, you will have no right to complain. Back away from anyone who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t treat you properly. If you believe that you serve the best, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get it.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Use your energy wisely and protect yourself against injury. Think matters through before you make a decision. Poor money management will require an unusual solution. Add to your skills and knowledge.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Past lessons will be a guide to a difficult situation that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re now facing. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need to act judiciously to keep the peace, and wisely to see through rampant misinformation.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Take note of what everyone around you is doing, and use what you learn to reduce your overhead and home in on exactly whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s required to achieve success.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t complain if someone asks you to do something. The fuss it will cause wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be worth the aggravation. Get the job done and move on to the things youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d prefer to do.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Share your thoughts and ideas and indulge in activities that allow you to show off your skills. Although you will attract attention, a humble and gracious attitude must prevail.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Fix up your space and find a way to budget for something youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to purchase. An emotional matter will escalate if you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been completely honest about the way you feel.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Consider innovative ways to make your work more efficient. Forming an alliance with someone who has discipline and a work ethic similar to yours will lead to greater freedom.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Keep life simple and get what needs to be done out of the way. Avoid dealing with unpredictable people. Team up with those willing and able to contribute consistently.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -Collect your thoughts and find a way to deal with a challenge before matters become costly. More effort toward improving your home or family life will be required.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Avoid melodrama. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to miss an opportunity due to a last-minute change. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel inconvenienced by what others do -- embrace life and enjoy the ride. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Appease whoever is standing between you and your goal. Making an effort to keep the peace will buy you the freedom to indulge in activities that interest you.
