ROCK FALLS – Stacey Avelar, 31, is one of many who might be affected by the government shutdown. For 3 years, the Rock Falls resident has participated in WIC, a program officially known as the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children. “It’s been very beneficial,” Avelar said. “It helps supplement the lack of income that we have, especially with groceries being so expensive.

U.S. Rep. Cheri Bustos, who represents Whiteside County, will not take her paycheck during the government shutdown after all. “Congressman Bustos took the step of asking the chief administrative officer of the House to withhold her paycheck until the current government shutdown is resolved,” her spokesman, Colin Milligan, said in an email Wednesday. During a telephone news conference, a reporter repeatedly asked the East Moline Democrat whether she planned to accept her pay during the shutdown. Others in Congress have said they wouldn’t.  Bustos wouldn’t give the

reporter a yesor-no answer. She said she supported the No Government, No Pay Act, which would bar pay for members Rep. Cheri of Congress Bustos during shutdowns. The Constitution bars any measures from affecting members’ pay during their current terms in office, so the legislation couldn’t take effect until their next terms. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Channahon, whose district includes Lee County, announced Tuesday that he would refuse his pay during the shutdown.

Attorney reminds official about Open Meetings Act Board failed to decide during public meeting BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 525

LYNDON – The village acknowledges that its board of trustees made a decision outside of a public meeting. Under state law, the board can take action only at a properly advertised open meeting.  Last month, the village responded to a complaint that resident Tracy Shaffer had filed

with the attorney general’s office. At the June 10 meeting of the Lyndon board of trustees, members were asked to approve payment of village bills. Trustee Les Williams questioned a $2,650 bill from Ballard’s Tree Trimming. Williams said the trustees had agreed to cut down only one tree that was split. However, at the meeting, Village President Tim Crady told the board that he had called three of the six trustees and they agreed to have the

work done. He said he did so because the company offered the village “a really good deal.” In a letter to the attorney general, Tim Zollinger, the village’s attorney, said he discussed the issue with Crady. “I ... reminded him of the obligations under the Open Meetings Act to refrain from contacting trustees developing consensus outside of a meeting properly called under the Open Meetings,” Zollinger wrote. At the same time, Zollinger said the board didn’t approve the expense until the June 10

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama brought congressional leaders to the White House on Wednesday for the first time since a partial government shutdown began, but there was no sign of progress toward ending an impasse that has idled 800,000 federal workers and curbed services around the country. Obama “refuses to negotiate,” House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio., told reporters after private talks that lasted more than an hour. “All we’re asking for here is a discussion and fairness for the American people under Obamacare.” But Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada said moments later, “We’re locked in tight on Obamacare” and neither the president nor Democrats will accept changes in the nation’s 3-year-old health care law as the price for spending legislation needed to end the two-day partial shutdown. With the nation’s ability to borrow money soon to lapse, Republicans and Democrats alike said the shutdown could last for 2 weeks or more, and soon oblige a divided government to grapple with both economy-threatening issues at the same time. The White House said in a statement after the meeting that Obama had made it clear “he is not going to negotiate over the need for Congress to act to reopen the government or to raise the debt limit to pay the bills Congress has already incurred.” It added, “The president remains hopeful that common sense will prevail.” meeting continued on A54

ComEd must refund $37M Customers win appeal in dispute over rate hikes CHICAGO (AP) – An appeals court has ordered ComEd to refund almost $37 million to its northern Illinois customers following a 6-year legal dispute. The utility still can appeal last week’s ruling by the Illinois Appeals Court to the state Supreme Court, according to a report in

about $10 back apiece. “We are disappointed with the Appellate Court’s decision arising from the 2007 rate case,” the company said in a statement. “While we will continue to review the court’s opinion and our options on this matter, ComEd remains focused on modernizing the electric system serving northern Illinois, including the deployment of digital smart meters to give customers greater control over their energy consumption and costs.”

Zollinger responded that the board followed the law, saying that it cited the personnel and litigation exemptions under the Open Meetings Act. The meeting was limited to Will Shaffer’s lawsuit and a specific employee who believed he was being harassed by Shaffer. The village president has struggled with the

Open Meetings Act before. Last year, he admitted to “dropping the ball” by having a board vote behind closed doors. To correct the mistake, he called a special meeting to revote the issue, which was the firing of an employee, Will Shaffer. A minority of board members criticized the decision, saying Crady hadn’t provided documentation on the reasons for Shaffer’s termination. Then-Trustee

Lyle Armstrong said Shaffer, who is black, had been the victim of discrimination. In his lawsuit, Shaffer said he had been discriminated against because he was black. Many times, he said, employees and even the former village clerk called him the N-word. He also contended that he had not been paid the same wage and benefits that “similarly situated” white employees received.

Glitches persist in insurance marketplace Lack of certified outreach workers a potential problem CHICAGO (AP) – Illinois officials thanked state residents for their patience Wednesday, the second day of a new online health insurance marketplace where consumers have run into frustrating glitches when they tried to sign up for coverage. For the second day, a new Illinois website routed people to a state Medicaid enrollment site or to a federal website, depending on household income. The Medicaid side of the system appeared to be working smoothly, with more than 5,000 applications submitted online. But problems with the federal website continued to prevent many people in Illinois and elsewhere from setting up accounts, comparing insurance policies and enrolling for coverage under the nation’s new health care law. Federal officials said the delays were caused by the high traffic on the HealthCare.gov site, possibly a sign of intense public interest in the new options offered through the law.

Debora Costa (right) tries to sign up for insurance coverage for her two children, including 2-year-old Victoria, Wednesday, with help from Champaign Urbana Public Health District employee Alice Cronenberg in Champaign. Costa, who recently moved to Illinois from Brazil with her graduate-student husband and children, found after about 10 minutes that she didn’t have all the information she would need to sign up. With prices nearly impossible to access on the site, the federal government released some cost information late Tuesday for policies available in Illinois and more than 30 other states. The new information shows prices by county, in certain age categories and certain family situations. For example, a 27-year-

old Adams County resident can choose from 39 plans ranging in price from $117 per month to $350 per month. That’s before tax credits, which could lower costs. A 27-year-old Cook County resident can choose among 72 plans from $125 per month to $375 per month before tax credits.

The federal government is running the technical side of the Illinois marketplace because state lawmakers didn’t approve a state-run system. By midmorning Wednesday, Champaign Urbana Public Health District employee Awais Vaid said that while people who are eligible

for Medicaid could sign up through the state’s website, the federal marketplace site was still responding with error messages. “I was there for about 45 minutes, and it was still not doing it,” he said, noting very few people had come through the office to try to sign up Wednesday. The Get Covered Illinois website had received more than 231,000 visitors as of 3 p.m. Wednesday, said spokeswoman Kelly Sullivan. A shortage of certified outreach workers is also a potential problem in Illinois. The workers are important because the enrollment process is complicated and many consumers need help navigating their way through the system. Illinois has been able

DIXON – Two men are accused of hate crimes after a knife was pulled during a fight at Drifters bar. The victim went to the hospital.

Justin S. Roth, 31, of Pekin, and Brandon S. Williams, 33, of Canton, were arrestJustin S. ed about Roth 12:30 a.m. Wednesday after Dixon Police responded to a call about a fight involving a knife, police said. Roth is charged with

committing a hate crime and aggravated battery. Williams is charged with Brandon S. committing Williams a hate crime, unlawful use of weapons, battery, and aggravated assault. Lt. Brad Sibley said the attack appeared to be

racially motivated. The victim, who later went to KSB Hospital where he was treated and released, was black, Sibley said. The victim suffered a cut to his lip after being hit, police said. Both Roth and Williams are in the Lee County Jail on $100,000 bonds. They are set to appear in court Oct. 16.

to certify only 200 outreach workers as of 9 a.m. Wednesday. “We are aggressively moving hundreds more through the queue in the next few days,” Sullivan said. State officials have blamed delays in getting the workers through a federal training program for the lag in certifications. Illinois officials have said 1,200 temporary outreach workers, hired with federal grant money, ultimately would be trained and certified. About 1.8 million Illinois residents are uninsured, about 15 percent of the population. Some of those who are trained said that even 70 hours of training didn’t prepare them for absolutely everything they would see.

Couple denied marriage license

Quinn to appeal lawmaker pay

ROCKFORD (AP) – A Winnebago County judge has denied a marriage license to a northern Illinois couple because a brain injury prevents the man from saying “I do.” The Rockford Register Star reports Colette Purifoy of Machesney Park petitioned Judge Lisa Fabiano to order Winnebago County Clerk Margie Mullins to issue the certificate. In dismissing the petition Wednesday, Fabiano said state law requires a couple to appear before the county clerk together and each sign the marriage application. She said state law doesn’t allow a guardian to act on behalf of Morris, who suffered an anoxic brain injury in November 2009.

CHICAGO (AP) – Gov. Pat Quinn has asked the Illinois Supreme Court to hear his appeal of a ruling that his veto of money for lawmaker salaries was unconstitutional. Attorneys for Quinn filed a motion with the court Wednesday. Quinn vetoed money for paychecks in July because he was angry legislators hadn’t addressed Illinois’ nearly $100 billion pension crisis. House Speaker Michael Madigan and Senate President John Cullerton sued, saying his action was unconstitutional. Last week, a Cook County judge agreed and ordered the state to immediately pay lawmakers.

NEW YORK (AP) — In 1985, a year after the Cold War thriller “The Hunt for Red October” came out, author Tom Clancy was invited to lunch at the Reagan White House, where he was questioned by Navy Secretary John Lehman. Who, the secretary wanted to know, gave Clancy access to all that secret material? Clancy, the best-selling novelist who died Tuesday in Baltimore at 66, insisted then, and after, that his information was strictly unclassified: books, interviews, and papers that were easily obtained. Also, two submarine officers reviewed the final manuscript. In an interview with The New York Times in 1987, he explained that unclassified information can lead to insights about state secrets. “One of the reasons we are so successful is that we have a free society with open access to information,” he said. “If you

widely read and influential military novelist of his time, one who seemed to capture a shift in the country’s mood away from the CIA misdeeds that were exposed in the 1970s to the heroic feats of Clancy’s most famous creation, CIA analyst Jack Ryan. “Thrillers, like all art, are always a reflection of the culture,” said fellow author Brad Meltzer. “No one captured that Cold War fear – and that uniquely American perspective – like Clancy. Jack Ryan wasn’t just a character. He was us. He was every American in those days when we were a push-of-the-button away from nuclear war.” Fans couldn’t turn the pages fast enough, and a number of his hightech, geopolitical thrillers, including “The Hunt for Red October,” “Patriot Games” and “Clear and Present Danger,” were made into blockbuster movies, with another, “Jack Ryan,” set for release on Christmas.

Illinois WIC can last a month stopped

Continued from A1 t

The Rev. Douglas Greenaway, CEO and president of the National WIC Association, said the program has a contingency fund in place for situations like this. But that fund contains only $125 million. WIC is a $7 billion per year operation. Nationwide, 8.8 million mothers and young children rely on the program. Illinois currently enrolls the sixth highest number of WIC participants in America, with 281,000. Greenaway said only a handful of states will be able to last through the month. Illinois is one of them. Still other states face more dire situations with funding expected to last only through the end of the week. “It’s a day-by-day level of uncertainty here,” Greenaway said.  Penny Roth, Illinois’ statewide WIC director, says that of the 281,000 participants, 75,000 of them come from the

northwest corner of the state, including Carroll, Lee, Ogle and Whiteside counties. “Over these next days we’ll be looking at what our options are, and, you know, worst case would be we could not operate and that would be very unfortunate because there’s a lot of need,” Roth said. “Especially when it comes to babies that are on special formulas – those can be very expensive.” Roth emphasized that people who are currently in possession of a voucher can continue to use it. Cathy Ferguson, the administrator of the Lee County Health Department, said that during the 2013 fiscal year, her office serviced 1,566 WIC participants. In Whiteside County, that number is a little higher at 1,788.

Beth Fiorini, public health administrator for Whiteside County Health Department, is worried about what could happen if the funds run out. “I just think this whole thing is horrible,” Fiorini said. “These people depend on WIC, and it’s been proven over and over again to help. “I don’t know what we’ll do. I don’t know what people will do. We’ll just have to start facilitating them going to food banks and finding ways to get formula.” On Tuesday, Fiorini estimated her office fielded more than 25 phone calls from participants worried about the effect the shutdown would have on her office. Greenaway said that 53 percent of American infants benefit from the WIC program. “Most of us know somebody who was on WIC, or their mom was on WIC, or someone who will be on WIC,” he said. “It’s stupid,” he said of the defunding. “It is unnecessary, and it’s shameful.”

Numbers show certain agencies more essential NASA has sent largest percentage of workers home WASHINGTON (AP) – NASA may have the Right Stuff, but it’s not essential. In fact, of all the larger government agencies, NASA is sending the largest percentage home in the government shutdown because they are considered nonessential. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Department of Veterans Affairs, which usually doesn’t grab attention unless something goes wrong, has one of the highest percentage of workers considered essential and staying on. In a city where being essential is considered as fundamental as breathing, the essential workers number is the real indicator of importance – politically and otherwise. It’s the essential number on being essential. “It tells you who has juice and who can protect their workers,” said Paul Light, a professor of public service at New York University. “It is an indicator of who is popular, who is homecoming queen, who is homecoming king, and who is coming in last.” NASA comes up last. Only 3 percent of its workers are essential. The space agency doesn’t have a launch scheduled until November. The space shuttle has been retired for a couple of years. The phrase “The Right Stuff” showing astronauts’ can-do spirit dates to a

Of all the larger government agencies, NASA is sending the largest percentage home in the government shutdown. movie and book that are at least 30 years old. The space agency, which turned 55 on the day it essentially shut its doors, took seriously the threshold of only using workers protecting life or property, so “it doesn’t mean (NASA) isn’t important by any stretch,” agency spokesman Bob Jacobs said Monday before he was deemed nonessential. In general, about 60 percent of the 2.1 million federal workforce is still working during the shutdown. But some not-so-loved federal agencies can’t even muster 10 percent on the essential meter. The Environmental Protection Agency, often a whipping boy for Republicans in Congress, has only 6 percent of its workers listed as essential. So does the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Ever the decimal coun-

ters, the Internal Revenue Service has only 9.3 percent working during the shutdown. On the low side of the essential ranking, you can find the departments of Education (10 percent), Treasury (18 percent), Interior (20 percent), and Labor (22 percent). Even working in James Bond-type agencies doesn’t give you more juice than the people who deal with planes, trains and automobiles – or even tomatoes. About 30 percent of civilian workers in the nation’s intelligence agencies are still working, Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper told Congress Wednesday. That’s about the same as the Department of Agriculture, but nothing compared with the 67 percent of Department of Transportation workers are still on the job.

Traders pushing for quick solution meeting

Continued from A1 t

The high-level bickering at microphones set up outside the White House reflected the day’s proceedings in the Capitol. The Republican-controlled House approved legislation to reopen the nation’s parks and the National Institutes of Health, even though many Democrats criticized them as part of a piecemeal approach that fell far short of what was needed. The bills face dim prospects in the Senate, and the White House threatened to veto both in the unlikely event they make it to Obama’s desk. Earlier, an attempt by Democrats to force shutdown-ending legislation to the House floor failed on a 227-197 vote, with all Republicans in opposition. That left intact the tea party-driven strategy of demanding changes to the nation’s health care overhaul as the price for essential federal financing, despite grumbling from Republican moderates. The stock market ended lower as Wall Street CEOs, Europe’s central banker, and traders pressed for a solution before serious damage is done to the economy. Chief executives from the nation’s biggest financial firms met Obama for more than an hour Wednesday, some of them plainly frustrated with the tactics at play in Congress and with the potential showdown coming over the debt limit. “You can re-litigate these

In an interview with CNBC before meeting with lawmakers, Obama said he would not negotiate with Republicans until the government is reopened and Congress votes to raise the

debt limit. “If we get in the habit where a few folks, an extremist wing of one party, whether it’s Democrat or Republican, are allowed to extort concessions based on a threat (to) undermine the full faith and credit of the United States, then any president who comes after me, not just me, will find themselves unable to govern effectively,” he said.

The plan, which will go before the County Board for approval in June, is supposed to guide land use and growth for the next 20 years.

Retired teacher concerned about future of pension Craig Pence Dixon

I am a retired teacher who will see my pension cut if the General Assembly passes legislation of the sort that has been proposed in the past several legislative sessions. I just received by email a legislative update from my representative, Tom Demmer, and was dis-

turbed to find that he repeats a frequently cited but improper rationale for support of this kind of legislation. (“I’ll continue to work for a reform solution that protects the pension systems from bankruptcy and recognizes the massive financial pressures facing the state.”) It is understandable that politicians would look for cover when supporting legislation that will take away some of the benefits that have been contractually earned by

teachers, policemen, firemen and other public servants during the years they worked. But the rationale for that support should at least be factual. The U.S. Constitution contains no provision for a state to declare bankruptcy, and lacking the ability to do so means that the state cannot legally be relieved of its obligations to any of its creditors – and that includes retired public employees. Therefore, hinting that the pension systems

could become “bankrupt” is not a factual justification for the seizure of the property of retired public servants. You may not be a public employee and may not think you have a reason to care about what happens to those of us who are, but if the General Assembly can confiscate our property to make up for a crisis that they alone created, you might wonder what they can take away from you when they create the next one.

State forks out for companies to remain here Instead, why not scottREEDER Reeder try to improve the Scott is a reporter business climate? inforresidence the IlliI’m getting oodles of news releases from Gov. Pat Quinn touting all the jobs he is bringing to – or “keeping” in – Illinois. One thing politicians such as Quinn won’t tell you – unless you ask – is how much such endeavors are costing you, the taxpayer.  You see, the state of Illinois is paying companies to be here. It’s a rather unseemly affair.  If Illinois isn’t attractive enough for businesses in its own right, the state has serious problems that need to be addressed. Don’t get me wrong – there is nothing wrong with the Land of Lincoln putting its best foot forward and showing prospective suitors the advantages it has to offer: a central location, excellent transportation, and a topnotch workforce.  But paying companies to locate here? No way. What we are talking about, folks, is the difference between courtship and – paid companionship.  Taxpayers are paying for the continued corporate friendship of the likes of Sears, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, Continental Tire, Motorola, Ford Motor Co., and many more.  Some of these deals happened under Quinn, others under past governors. I don’t care if it was a Republican or Democrat who presided over these forays in cronyism – they are just plain wrong.  Government should create a level playing field in which all businesses can compete.  But it shouldn’t pick which businesses are winners and which ones will be losers.  One of the primary ways Illinois doles out incentives is through the EDGE tax credit, which funnels

the income taxes paid by employees into their employer’s accounts rather than state coffers. It’s a pretty sweet deal for the companies. “Why do big corporations do things like this? Because they can,” said Greg LeRoy, executive director of the liberal Washington, D.C., think tank Good Jobs First. “Companies like Archer Daniels Midland, Motorola, or some foreign auto manufacturer are trophy companies that politicians like to point to and say they ‘brought’ to the state,” LeRoy said. In fact, Archer Daniels Midland, or ADM, is reportedly looking to move its corporate headquarters out of downstate Decatur to a larger city.  The Fortune 30 company is being wooed by Quinn’s administration to relocate to the Chicago area. Other states may be in play as well.  ADM, a food-processing and commodities-trading corporation that calls itself “The Supermarket to the World,” is shopping for the best corporate handout. Last year, ADM’s revenues exceeded $80 billion.  By comparison, last year Illinois state government had total revenues of $68 billion. So the state is looking at giving a handout to a company taking in more money than all of Illinois state government.   That’s an embarrassment.  ADM is a private corporation and can locate its top-100 executives wherever it pleases.   Instead of cutting sweetheart deals for big companies, Illinois would be better off working for a better climate for all businesses – not just a select few.

Recreating Richard Widmark Local man gives actor his artistic touch BY GOLDIE CURRIE Shaw News Service gcurrie@bcrnews.com

P

RINCETON – Richard Widmark, the famous Hollywood actor, is most likely the biggest name to come out of Princeton. Oddly enough, other than Widmark Wednesdays at the Princeton Public Library, not much has been done to commemorate his connection to Princeton – until now. Well-known local artist Bart Kassabaum has produced a major collage that captures Widmark’s entire filmography and his life in Princeton. “I always had the idea in the back of my mind that one day I was going to do this and do more research on him, but it kept sitting in the background,” he said. Last year, after being approached and asked if he would consider creating a piece on Widmark, Kassabaum knew it was the opportune time to create “The Widmark Look.” Widmark’s family moved to Princeton in 1925. Widmark graduated from Princeton High School in 1932. While in Princeton, Widmark’s family lived in seven different places within the community, some of which still exist. Widmark was a door-

Princeton artist Bart Kassabaum stands with his newest piece, “The Widmark Look.” The collage-styled piece commemorates the movie career of famous Hollywood actor Richard Widmark and his connection to Princeton. Kassabaum is selling 15-inch-by-19-inch prints of his creation, which come with a concise biography of Widmark that Kassabaum compiled during his research into the life of the actor. man at the Apollo Theater around 1930. After high school, he attended Lake Forest College, where he got into acting. He became an overnight success in 1947, when he starred in his first film, “The Kiss of Death.” He won a Golden Globe for his performance and was nominated for an Academy Award that year. Kassabaum remembers growing up and watching Widmark’s movies at The

Grand Theater in Granville in the 1950s. “He just stuck right in my head, and every time he was in a movie, it was, ‘Oh, I’m going to see that,’” he said. “You didn’t know whether he was going to be the good guy or the bad guy. More than likely it was the bad guy.” Kassabaum embarked on his creation last November. He came up with a list of all 72 movies

Widmark had starred in. He watched and studied the movies, watched extras about the movies, listened to interviews with actors who starred with Widmark, collected research from news articles, movie magazines, from city directories and telephone books, and talked with people who had connections to Widmark. “I made a lot of discoveries on my own about

Princeton,” Kassabaum said. “I know every place in this town where this man lived.” Kassabaum’s Widmark project took 9 months to complete. Alongside the art piece, he put together a concise biography about Widmark’s movie career and life in Princeton. Using prismacolor pencils, watercolors and designers gouache, Kassabaum created the

many faces of Widmark’s characters and arranged them around the canvas alongside his movie titles. He also included faces from fellow actors and actresses in his movies, prominent figures in his life, and depictions of the Princeton homes he lived in, the high school he attended and, of course, the Apollo Theater. “I was trying to do a piece of art that not only showed how successful he was in the movies and show a filmography of his life, but also the main thrust was to show his connection to Princeton,” he said. Kassabaum’s “hook” is his own rendition of Widmark, which is the largest face in his piece. After looking through piles of photographs, Kassabaum decided none truly captured the Widmark look he wanted to incorporate. “Those were more formal or informal photos where he was just himself and not Richard Widmark the actor on screen, which is what I wanted to get,” he said. The only regret Kassabaum has about his piece is not doing it sooner. “I really had to dig and scrape to get any information,” he said. “But right now I probably know more about Richard Widmark’s life in this town than any other person.” Kassabaum is hoping to donate a portion of funds raised from selling his prints to a fund that will be used to highlight the life of Widmark in Princeton.

ENTERTAINMENT | CATCHING UP WITH LOCAL TALENT

A welcome punch in face 1984 Sterling High grad honored for fight choreography at festival BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 529

K

elly Carter took a punch to the face in the safest way possible, and was given an award for it. Carter, 47, is a Sterling native and a 1984 graduate of Sterling High School. He was honored for his part in the short film “Bad Ass Bikers” by being named the Male Action Performer of the Year by the Action on Film International Film Festival in August. He also received an award for fight choreography. He now lives in Marina del Rey, Calif., where, in addition to his work in films, he runs a holistic medical practice.

Carter moved to California in January 2002 in an effort to break into mixed martial arts, but said he had a “hidden agenda” to use fighting as a way of getting into the film industry. Shortly after his California arrival, he met a chiropractor who helped him build a client list for his holistic health business. “I still have the hay in my hair moving from Illinois,” Carter said. “And I’m working with some of the biggest stars in the world, working with them and training them.” Carter started boxing when he was 8, in part, because he was scared of it and was getting picked on, he said.

Boxing was something he did with his father, Tom Carter, said his mother, Julie Falcon, who still lives in Sterling. “I just support him in everything he gets into,” she said. “He just tries everything. He’s traveled, and he’s just had great opportunities traveling all over and doing things that a lot of people don’t.” In “Bad Ass Bikers,” Carter takes a punch to the face. It was filmed with a slow-motion camera. He got the call about the role while he was back in Sterling for a high school reunion, he said, adding that the phone call from director Nate Adams came on a

Friday and he left for the set on Saturday morning. Falcon saw the scene with Carter’s grandmother, who is 92, and said she had to warn her about what she was going to see and that it was done safely. There’s some strategy to safely taking a punch to the face, Carter said. The key is to take the punch to the softer tissue between the cheek and jawbones. Also key for the scene was for Carter to not anticipate the punch. “I just relaxed,” he said. “I was conditioned for it. I wasn’t scared of it. If I had been scared of it, I probably would’ve flinched.”

ANDWICH – Reservations for PR Productions’ next murder mystery dinner are due Monday. “A Day in the Life of Murder” will be performed on Oct. 11 and 12 at Fox Valley Community Center, 1406 Suydam Road, Sandwich. Dinner begins each

night at 7 p.m., with the performance to follow. “This particular production is very unique,” said Christopher Roe, director of the production. “Not only will we give audiences everything they’ve come to expect in a murder mystery comedy, but we will directly involve them in the story.” Much of this performance will be impro-

vised, taking suggestions from the audience on key aspects of the story line. Roe said even the cast won’t know who the murderer is. “We are literally practicing every scenario we can think of,” he said. “But, still, we have no idea who will suggest what outcome and who will be the murderer.” Audience members

will be instrumental in the show’s outcome, but will not participate in a clue hunt as in previous murder mystery productions. “This particular show has been carefully designed with the audience member in mind,” Roe said. “While they won’t hunt for clues this time, they will have the opportunity to interrogate cast mem-

bers, if they choose.” Tickets are $25 each and include a buffet dinner. Dinner includes baked chicken, Italian beef, lasagna, potato salad, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, California vegetables, coleslaw, salad and dressing, rolls and butter, and dessert. Show-only tickets, which do not include dinner or dessert, are

available for $12. A cash bar is available at the performance, and coffee, lemonade, and water are included. To reserve your tickets, go to www.wewantpr. com or call 888-3950797.

T

echnically dazzling and emotionally gripping, “Gravity” is a space-age science fiction thriller grounded in something pretty close to reality. A space shuttle / space junk accident picture, Alfonso Cuaron’s movie gives us Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, space-walkers whose ship is wrecked, forcing them to face the ultimate human fear. No one wants to die alone. There is no place lonelier than the cold, silent and airless vacuum of space. Filmed in a stunning “How’d they do that?” 3-D, we meet chatty Matt Kowalski (Clooney) testing a new jet pack, and Dr. Ryan Stone (Bullock), who is wrenching away on the Hubble Space Telescope. It’s a routine spacewalk, with a barely glimpsed third astronaut outside the shuttle Explorer (NASA typically didn’t allow three space walkers out). Just another day of work for STS 157, with Kowalski cracking jokes and telling stories. Mission Control (the unseen Ed Harris) indulges him, bemused as ever. Then, 10 minutes in, comes word of a Russian satellite destruction exercise that’s gone awry. A cloud of deadly debris is racing for them. And before they can abort the spacewalk, get inside the ship and get away, it is trashed, their third space walker is killed, and they’re stranded, with mere minutes of oxygen in Stone’s suit standing

This film image released by Warner Bros. Pictures shows Sandra Bullock in a scene from “Gravity.”

‘Gravity’ 3 1/2 stars (Grade: A) Cast: Sandra Bullock, George Clooney, the voice of Ed Harris Directed by Alfonso Cuaron, written by Jonas and Alfonso Cuaron. A Warner Brothers release. Running time: 1:30 MPAA rating: PG-13 for intense perilous sequences, some disturbing images, and brief strong language n “Gravity” will be shown in 3D starting Friday at Carmike 8 Sauk Valley, 410 E. 30th St., Sterling. Go to www.carmike.com for showtimes. between her and an even quicker death than the certain doom facing them both. Clooney’s soothing voice is used to wonderful effect as he calms the space rookie down. His Kowalski is Mr. “Right Stuff,” coming up with a plan (jetting over to the International Space Station, which had to be abandoned because of the coming debris assault) and making Stone tell him chunks of her life story to still her panic. Oxygen? “Sip, not gulp. Remember, wine, not beer.” The movie plays out in something like real time as they have 90 minutes before the next space

junk pass to get to safety. But everything, and I do mean everything, stands in their way. The only missing menaces are Darth Vader and the creatures from “Aliens.” Bullock’s Stone speaks for all of us as she deals with each fresh horror with a “What now?” She does some of her best acting in years, her mood shifting from desperation to resignation with just a look. She is well-cast as someone vulnerable, overmatched but with a backbone that surprises. Cuaron, who directed “Children of Men” and the best Harry Potter movie (“Prisoner of Azkaban”), uses the silence of space bril-

liantly – muffled, distant radio transmissions, shockingly violent but silent crashes, with only the sound of panting and faint yelping (in Bullock’s case) from our intrepid space explorers underscoring the disaster. They’re hurled, yanked and thumped, and all we hear is their gasping, their crackling radios and a thunk if they hit compartment of a space ship that has oxygen in it. The parade of accidents takes “Gravity” close to the realm of melodrama, and the physics of it all isn’t flawless. But you’d have to go back to “Apollo 13” and such ’60s epics as “2001: A Space Odyssey” and “Marooned” to find a film this determined to perfectly dramatize the very real perils of spaceflight. Bullock and Clooney make their peril our peril in this absolutely gorgeous, moving, and sometimes exultant reminder that the real terrors of space are scary enough, without throwing in invented bugeyed monsters.

Husband’s anxiety may push wife over the edge Dear Abby: I have been married to my best friend, “Blake,” for 2 years. A year ago he started having panic attacks, so I made an appointment for him with his doctor. After checking him for everything, including heart failure, the doctor diagnosed him with anxiety. Since his diagnosis, Blake is scared to leave the house. I have been working two jobs to make ends meet because he says he “can’t work.” This has taken a toll on our marriage. We have three kids and a lot of bills. Blake is on medication and has tried many different ones, but they aren’t working. All he talks about is his anxiety and every little ache or pain.

do have one. Your husband should be seen by a licensed mental health professional (psychologist) who works with a psychiatrist. He may need more than medication to help him conquer his anxiety disorder. He might do better with a combination of talk therapy in addition to his meds. Please urge your husband to do this because the aches, pains, and anxiety he’s experiencing may seem like they’re all in his head to you, but they’re real to him. It could save your marriage.

Dear Abby: We have a house cleaner once per month. Last month, I offered her some grapefruit from our tree and she took six. This month, she helped herself to all of the fruit that was left on the tree. She didn’t ask permission, and

she didn’t tell me she had done it. I happened to see her put it into her car. I consider this to be stealing, but my husband does not. Because she took the fruit without permission and without telling me, do you consider it stealing? – “Anita” in Florida Dear “Anita”: The woman may have assumed you wouldn’t mind if she took the fruit because you had offered it to her the month before. (Did you say she could take only six?) Rather than call this stealing, I would call it a misunderstanding. Clear it up by telling your house cleaner that you want nothing removed from your premises unless you have specifically told her she may have it.

Card roles can be obscure at times

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

Jane Goodall said, “Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play. Every individual makes a difference.” A bridge player might add the word “card” after each “individual.” However, sometimes the role of a particular card may be difficult to discern. In this deal, South is in four spades. West leads the club king. How should declarer plan the play? What is the role of South’s heart king? South opens two clubs, strong, artificial and forcing. His hand is a minimum because, when unbalanced, opener will usually have at least nine winners. This hand has only eight and a half: five spades, two diamonds,

one club and half a heart. But it is a sensible opening bid. However, when North raises spades, promising some points, South has to settle for four spades to an-

nounce his minimum. If North has a good hand, he can bid higher. When dummy tables with the spade ace, declarer has nine tricks. Probably his first thought is that he needs East to have the heart ace. Then, after getting to dummy with a trump, a heart lead through East would generate a trick for South’s king. Here, though, you will notice that West has the heart ace. What can South do? Declarer must realize that the heart king is a red herring. He should play to ruff a heart on the board, which generates a seventh trump trick. He takes the first trick (otherwise, West might shift to a trump) and plays a heart. When South wins the next trick, he leads another heart. And in a moment, declarer gains that key ruff. © 2013 UFS

In this aerial photo, emergency workers respond to a crash involving a passenger bus, a tractor-trailer and an SUV Wednesday near Dandridge, Tenn. Authorities said the bus, carrying members of a North Carolina church group, veered across the highway median and crashed into the other vehicles in a fiery wreck that killed eight people. crying and hugging each other. One woman whispered, “It’s going to be all right” while hugging another woman. A memorial service was held Wednesday evening. Police cordoned off the church to prevent reporters from talking to those who attended. Following the service, Front Street Baptist associate pastor Rick Cruz remarked, “This is a time of difficulty, but we trust in God ... that He’s

fair. ... All your prayers are appreciated.” George Stadfeld, who has been a member of the church for 8 years, said he knew everyone on the bus. “We’re all shaken,” he said. “As bad as it is, they’re all Christians, and I know where they’re at. I’ll join them later.” Dionne Stutts, wife of Front Street Baptist senior pastor Tim Stutts, said her husband and another pastor from the

church were en route to the wreck site. “They had been there, and they were on their way home today,” she said. “We are devastated and just ask for the people to be praying.” Authorities said the bus crossed the median and the cable barriers that divide the interstate about 2 p.m., clipped the oncoming SUV and slammed into the tractor-trailer, which burst into flames.

Some customers with automatic bill payment say the company took more money out of their bank account than it was supposed to. Others have said their bill was double what it should have been.

Jacob Harrison’s first snap in his first game at center last season sailed over the quarterback. Those occurrences are now few and far between. The Dixon High School junior is in his first year as the varsity starting center, a crucial position in the Dukes’ shotgun offense. “The most Cody important Mighell ingredient to Dixon the gun is the junior center,” Dixon coach Dave Smith said. “He’s extremely intelligent. He’s at the top of his class academically. And he’s quick and tenacious. He’s been a very good surprise for us.” What Harrison is not is a braggart. He’s one of those ownworst-critic types.

Amboy’s Damon Quest looks upfield after a catch against Morrison last week. The Clippers are 2-0 in the Three Rivers North and host Erie-Prophetstown in a key conference game Friday.

The big question

How will Amboy solve the Nick Williams problem? BY CHRISTOPHER HEIMERMAN cheimerman@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, Ext. 552

Everybody’s had a hard time tackling Nick Williams this season. The good news for Emmitt Hicks? That’s not necessarily his job. Recently moved from defensive end to tackle, the Amboy senior got some great advice from Garrett Liebing, alongside whom he’ll line up when his Clippers entertain Erie-Prophetstown (4-1, 3-0 Three Rivers North) Friday night. “Just stay low, and your job isn’t to make tackles, but to make piles,” Hicks said. Williams leads the area’s

rushers in every category except remorse. A steam engine chugging downhill, the 5-foot-9, 180-pound fullback has piled up 1,073 yards on 109 carries, his 9.9

yards-per-carry clip helping him score 17 – that’s a 1 and a 7 – touchdowns through five games. Liebing checks in at 6-foot-1, 250 pounds, Hicks at 6-2, 230. But plugging the middle only begins to solve the problem that is the Panthers. Quarterback Ethan Howard (61 carries, 547 yards, three TDs) leads a versatile supporting cast to Williams’ star. Fleet-footed backs Chris Bauer and Jordan Chandler demand that linebackers and ends be honest while defending the Panthers’ signature veer option.

Austin Donoho knows he only gets to play so many downs of football before his playing days end. The Rock Falls senior isn’t going to waste any of those valuable snaps on the sideline. Donoho starts at receiver and defensive back for the Rockets (1-4), and doesn’t leave the field for special teams ,either. “You only get to play football Austin for so long,” Donoho Donoho said. Rock Falls “So, I love senior being out there all of the time.” So far, he’s made it count. On the offensive side of the ball, he leads the team with 48 receptions for 432 yards and five touchdowns. The 48 receptions is only eight shy of the SVM areahigh from a year ago of 56 caught by Milledgeville’s Jordan Harris. SNAP CONTINUED ON B4

Cubs spokesman Julian Green told a radio station they retrieved it, only to later admit it was gone.

bears

Tackling a very touchy subject L AKE FOREST – Mel Tucker had nowhere to run. The media horde spotted the Bears’ defensive coordinator near the sideline of the practice field at Halas Hall on Wednesday and cornered him in seconds. All around him, cameras. All around him, microphones. All around him, questions. “You guys want to talk about tackling?” Tucker said with a half-smile, half-grimace. Yes. Well, no. We guys (and gals) wanted to talk about the absence of tackling. The Bears will play the New Orleans Saints this weekend, and you’ll hear all about the chess match between Marc Trestman’s complex offense and Rob Ryan’s complex defense. You’ll hear all about the Saints’ super-thanksfor-asking offense and the Bears’ sneaky counter attacks on defense.

Oh. Perhaps now would be the time to mention that Sproles (5-6, 190) is a small, shifty guy. Even still, the Bears have great talent on defense, just like the Saints do on offense. There’s no reason why they can’t wrap up and tackle, a skill that most learned at a young age. In practice, defensive players are not permitted to take down offensive players. In practice, defensive players can do everything in regard to tackling except, well, tackling. “There’s definitely ways you can work on it,” Conte said. “The biggest thing with us is having our feet right when we’re going to make the tackle, closing space and not getting our feet too wide. “There are little things you can work on without the actual contact of hitting, so we’re going to spend some time doing that.” Yes. Do that.

Panthers will focus on stopping Bontz question

Continued from B1

Philip Marruffo/pmarruffo@saukvalley.com

Dixon’s Kyle LeBlanc is tackled during last week’s loss to Geneseo. The Dukes are hoping to rebound this week against LaSalle-Peru.

LP’s height could be issue for Dukes line

Continued from B1

“I’m not going to lie, our centers have had a hard time,” said the 5-foot-11, 172-pound Harrison, who is also in the linebacker rotation. “But, we’re getting better. There is a lot of pressure playing center. Every play, you’re the first thing that has to go right.” Cody Mighell, another of Dixon’s 14 juniors, stepped into a starting role as a sophomore. “He’s got a very good nose for the ball,” Smith said. “We needed help last year at linebacker, and he came in and played the hammer [an outside linebacker position] for us.” The Dukes (1-4, 0-1 NIB12 West) visit LaSalle-Peru (also 1-4, 0-1) on Friday. “I feel like LP and us are equal,” said Mighell, a 5-10, 202-pounder who also sees time at running back. “We just have to play like we did against Yorkville, and we’ll definitely take them down.” Dixon lost at home to Yorkville 24-14 in Week 3. LaSalle-Peru defeated Yorkville 16-9 the following week.

Though the Dukes have lost four straight since winning their opener, the team has not lost confidence. “We know that we can play better than we have been, and we plan on playing better than we have been,” Harrison said. Dixon’s playoff hopes are still mathematically alive. Are they still thinking playoffs? “Always,” Mighell said. “No matter if you lose by a lot or you win by a lot, that’s how you have to think about it. That always has to be your goal.” Last season, LP thumped Dixon 53-14 in Week 6, with Cavs then-senior quarterback Zack Cinotto throwing for 388 yards and seven touchdowns in less than 3 quarters. This year, LP boasts a lot of size. “They have 6-3 and 6-1 receivers, and a 6-3 tight end,” Smith said. “They have a 6-4, 331-pound guard who also plays nose tackle. Their smallest lineman is 235.” Dixon junior receiver/ defensive back Matt Coffey is questionable with an ankle injury he suffered last week.

“Our job on those is to stay on the back side and keep any counters from coming back,” Hicks said. “The ends and linebackers need to get to the quarterback.” “We have to be very disciplined on defense,” Amboy coach Gary “Tank” Jones said. “That’s how they get ya, when you get two guys going at the quarterback or at the running back.” A rash of injuries led to Jones shifting Hicks to tackle. The Clippers (2-3, 2-0) have won two in a row after dropping their first three, a turnaround Jones attributes to players developing a sense of ownership at their positions. Jason Bontz (93 rushes, 621 yards, 6 TDs), most notably, has taken the role of premier running back and run with it. And fullback Chris Jones – no relation – is playing bigger than his 5-6, 165pound frame. “He’s not a very big kid, but he’s stepped up for us,” Jones said. “In the past, he wasn’t getting those carries. Repetition is huge.” Panthers coach Chuck Milem admits his offense has been more dynamic than he expected this season. But after returning almost its entire defensive line, the defense has underwhelmed its head coach. “We actually can be a lot better than we’ve been,” Milem said Tuesday. “But we had a really good practice today. The guys are being physical with each other and competing in practice.

Alex T. Paschal/apaschal@saukvalley.com

Amboy’s Jason Benhoff records a sack during the Clippers loss to Hall earlier this season. The Clippers host Erie-Prophetstown in a key Three Rivers North game on Friday. We competed from the scout team to the starters. You’ve gotta give that look that Amboy’s going to throw at you – being physical and getting in your face.” One sophomore who’s still learning how to unleash the inner beast is Dylan Binion, who filled in at linebacker as a freshman on last year’s playoff squad when the injury bug bit. “It was nerve-racking,” Binion said of his first varsity game. “It was important having good leaders to help get me

through it. They just told me to do my job.” This week, that means focusing on the Clippers’ iso looks and, when they give to Bontz on a power play, taking away any cutback lanes. “If the play goes away, I’ve got to have the cutback,” Binion said. “I’ve just got to read the guard and see what they’re doing.” Jones says he’s had no issues getting his guys fired up for a matchup of conference unbeatens. “I told the kids, ‘We’re

both undefeated. We’ve got the best back in the area coming here,’” he said. “Good teams like a challenge and step up. How good are we?” He’ll have a much better idea after Friday night. For the Panthers, what better place to become playoff eligible than a tough place to win like The Harbor? “I definitely think all the kids know it’s a big game for us, especially against a team that has such a deep, rich history,” Milem said.

Alex T. Paschal/apaschal@saukvalley.com

Rock Falls’ Dustin Huycke fights for yards after making a reception during the Rockets’ 22-21 victory over Marengo in Week 2. Huycke is tied for 10th in the area with 12 receptions, while teammate Austin Donoho leads the area with 48 grabs.

Harris isn’t at the top of that list this year, as he has had to take the lion’s share of snaps at quarterback for Milledgeville after Kameron DawTyne was injured in Week 2. Donoho’s offensive production also helps replace the void left by Alex Leaf, Steven Armoska and Austin Babcock. The three graduates combined for 153 receptions in their senior season. This season, Donoho has seen a lot of targets, but quarterback Jake Mammosser has also completed 31 passes to Daegan Wharff and 19 to Connor Cain. “It’s not really about stats for us,” Donoho said. “I think we all have a great relationship with Jake, and he does an excellent job of spreading the ball around to everyone.” The offense has had to work the last 3 weeks, as Lutheran, Byron and Winnebago have combined to score 185 points. “It’s not really the

offense that I am worried about,” Rock Falls coach Scott Berge said. “We’ve been able to move the ball and score. It’s just that we haven’t been able to stop anyone.” Next up on the list is the undefeated Stillman Valley Cardinals, who host the Rockets on Friday. The Cardinals have escaped close conference games with Oregon and Byron by seven points to remain at the top of the Big Northern race. “We can’t focus too much on what they are doing,” Donoho said. “It’s about focusing on what we are doing and getting better.” Stillman is led by fullback Zac Hare, who has rushed for 607 yards and 10 touchdowns. “The fullback is a load,” Berge said. “We’ll try to sneak a few guys up in the box, but it’s about playing strong up front. He’s going to get a few yards, but you just can’t let him get going, because then he’s really hard to bring down.” With four losses, the Rockets know that the playoffs start now. A fifth loss would eliminate them from playoff contention. “We definitely know the importance of this game,” Donoho said. “We want that chance for the playoffs and know we can’t lose again.”

MLB | AL Wild-Card Game

Cobb ties up Indians Rays roll past Cleveland, advance to ALDS BY TOM WITHERS AP Sports Writer

CLEVELAND – The Tampa Bay Rays’ road show rolls on. Next stop: Boston. Alex Cobb dodged trouble for nearly seven innings, and the Rays pitched their way to another must-have win on the road, beating the Cleveland Indians 4-0 Wednesday night in the AL wild-card game. Cobb, who missed a chunk of the regular season after he was hit in the head by a line drive, quieted a thundering Cleveland crowd and ended the Indians’ unexpected season. Delmon Young homered in the third inning off rookie Danny Salazar as the Rays, playing in their third city over 4 days, advanced to face the AL East champion Red Sox in the division series starting Friday. Cobb’s comeback in August from his frightening injury helped stabilize

AP

The Rays’ Yunel Escobar (11) welcomes home Delmon Young after Young’s solo home run off Indians starting pitcher Danny Salazar in the third inning of the AL wild-card game Wednesday in Cleveland. The Rays won 4-0 to advance to the ALCS. the Rays, who have spent the past 2 weeks winning crucial games to make the postseason for the fourth time in 6 years. Cobb pitched out of massive jams in the fourth and fifth, and allowed two

runners to reach in the seventh before turning it over to Tampa Bay’s dependable bullpen. Joel Peralta struck out Nick Swisher on three pitches, ending Cleveland’s last real chance.

Sterling’s Trevor Sisson putts Wednesday at the Northern Illinois Big 12 Conference Meet at Senica’s Oak Ridge Golf Course.

Sterling disappointed with finish tragic Continued from B1 It tied Hurley for third place with Ottawa’s Dane Lehr, but the round had potential. Hurley hit 12 of 14 fairways and 13 of 18 greens, but needed 39 putts on the sloping, quick Oak Ridge greens. “Early on, I lipped out some putts and kind of lost confidence,” Hurley said. “The greens at Emerald Hill are really fast, and when they’re really fast, they break a lot. These don’t break as much, and I never adjusted to that. My speed was pretty good, but I had a lot of putts that just missed.” Kyle Sinn was next for Sterling with an 82; Trevor Sisson had an 83; Zach Rehmert and Austin Cook had 84s; and Nick Abele added a 93. The Golden Warriors will be returning to Oak

Ridge twice in the next 5 days, first for the L-P Invitational on Saturday, and then for the Class 2A LaSalle-Peru Regional on Tuesday. The top three teams and 10 individuals not on those teams advance to the Freeport Sectional on Oct. 14. “[Wednesday] and Saturday are definitely practice rounds for Tuesday,” Sterling coach C.J. Wade said. “By then, we should know the course pretty well, and what kind of shots we need to work on. Especially putting. I heard a lot of putting issues out there today.” “We will have seen the course twice already,” Hurley added, “and we’ll be ready to go. If we can all play good at the same time, we should have no problem getting out.” Dixon entered with a dual win over tournament champ Ottawa, but the Dukes struggled all day, with just one score

in the 80s. That was from Ryan Dixon, who carded an 87, with a whopping 40 putts. “Putting was rough,” Dixon said. “I was hitting the ball well, but I did not putt well at all. It just killed me.” Cord Schroeder and Jacob Bonnell each had 91s for Dixon, and Cole Ruckman added a 93 to round out the counting scores. John Brechon (96) and Austin Thomas (97) also competed. The medalist was Geneseo’s Eric Dellett with a 4-over-par 76, one fewer than Ottawa’s Carter Piercy. The NIB-12 East Tournament was also held at Oak Ridge, with Yorkville (308) edging out DeKalb (312) for the title. The Foxes had the day’s top two performers in Fred Washburn (70) and Evan Dill (71).
