Car chase ends with arrest

Rockford woman wanted in Winnebago County on fleeing charge BY CHRISTI WARREN cwarren@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 521

DIXON – A Rockford woman was arrested after she led authorities on a car chase for more than 30 minutes through Lee County this morning.

According to the Lee County Sheriff’s Department, a state police officer tried to stop Annette Wilson, 32, as she was driving on Interstate 88 east of Dixon at 10:30 a.m. Wilson then sped away, police said. State police policy is not to pursue

a person in a situation like that, Lt. John Biffany said. “You have to weigh the risk versus reward,” Biffany said. “We’re more likely to pursue a forcible felony suspect, such as someone wanted for murder or arson. It’s inherently

dangerous to pursue. ... You run a lot of risks.” Biffany said the trooper then used his radio to broadcast information about the car. CHASE CONTINUED ON A4

No injuries reported in IFH Group blaze Flames originated at air handling system’s motor BY CHRISTI WARREN cwarren@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 521

ROCK FALLS – A large factory building was evacuated just after noon today when an air handling unit caught fire. The call came in for a structure fire about 12:10 p.m., when flames could be seen coming from the roof of the IFH Group, 3300 E. Rock Falls Road. The business manufactures custom-fabricated hydraulic oil reservoirs, fuel tanks, and lubrication storage and handling systems, and employs

about 125 people, said its owner, Jim King Jr. According to the scene commander, after the air handling unit caught fire, the flames extended into the chimney on the roof. The fire was contained to that area, and no injuries were reported. King said that, thanks to fire extinguishers, the fire was pretty well contained by the time crews arrived on scene, and that it took them only minutes after that to completely douse the flames. The air handling unit is one of four or five systems the plant uses to pump fresh air into the building, King said, adding that it was the electric motor that caught fire. “Fortunately, the blower was IFH CONTINUED ON A2

Tuesday, and Mark A. Ballotti, 31, of Dixon, was arrested Monday. Both were charged with unlawful delivery of cannabis and unlawful possession of cannabis. Police say that the two sold more than 10 grams, but less than 30 grams, of marijuana on

separate occassions in December. Both men were taken to Lee County Jail. Ballotti’s bond was set at $10,000, which he was able to post. Braker’s bond was set at $5,000, which he was unable to post. According to a news release, the investigation is ongoing, and more arrests are pending.

Police: Rochelle woman set ex-boyfriend’s minivan on fire

Prosecutors: Teacher stabbed 13 times

BY CHRISTI WARREN CWARREN SAUKVALLEYCOM    EXT

AURORA – A Rochelle woman was arrested in Geneva on Tuesday morning after, police say, she set her exboyfriend’s car ablaze following an argument.

The Daily Herald reports that 53-yearold Otilia Delatorre is accused of setting fire to her 47-year-old ex-boyfriend’s 2005 Chrysler Town and Country minivan about 11 a.m. after an argument between the two became physical, and he left her alone inside the van. She then doused the van in flammable liquid and set it on fire while she was inside, later driving away in her own

car, the Daily Herald cites police reports as saying. The Daily Herald reports that police say Delatorre was arrested while driving in Geneva, and that when police pulled her over, she had suffered burns on her torso, and her clothing was charred. She is charged with arson, criminal damage to property, and two counts of domestic battery.

“Fortunately, the blower was still working and pumped all of the smoke out of the

building,� King said. King estimated that the factory would miss about an hour and a half of production while it cleaned things up and waited for the smoke to entirely clear

from the building. “We probably did more damage with the fire extinguishers than the fire did,� he said. “All the employees are safe, and that’s the important thing. The fire depart-

UNEMPLOYMENT

Area jobless rates on rise in December Bureau County sees full percentage-point spike

Area jobless rates Dec. 2013 Nov. 2013 Dec. 2012 Whiteside County  Lee County    Ogle County    Carroll County    Bureau County   Illinois   U.S. 

BY PAM EGGEMEIER peggemeier@saukvalley.com    EXT

Seasonal factors were at play as unemployment edged higher throughout the region in December. Bureau County saw a full percentage-point increase from the previous month, jumping from 9 to 10 percent. Seasonal movement in the retail and agriculture sectors were likely to blame for the December spike, county economic development leaders said. A Walmart Distribution Center in Spring Valley is Bureau Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest employer, with anywhere from 875 to more than 1,000 people working there at various times dur-

ing the year. Large retailers tend to ramp up holiday staffing in early fall, and by December, no longer need as many temporary workers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Walmart probably has something to do with the numbers,â&#x20AC;? said Debb Ladgenski, Spring Valley economic development director, and a member of the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economic development team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot of seasonal workers there for the holidays, and things are already

winding down in December.â&#x20AC;? Pete Nelson, another economic development team member from Princeton, said agriculture also likely was a factor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a later harvest this year, and we had some pretty amazing yields here,â&#x20AC;? Nelson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More people were hired for harvest this year, and now those ag-related activities have evaporated.â&#x20AC;? That includes such compa-

nies as a large Pioneer Seed plant in Princeton and Ag View FS, which supplies ag chemicals and fuel for drying operations. There were no big swings in the county manufacturing base, Nelson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know of any significant factory layoffs,â&#x20AC;? Nelson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think that contributed.â&#x20AC;? While Bureau County saw the largest increase of area jobless in December, Ogle County still lays claim to the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highest unemployment rate. Ogleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jobless rate jumped from 9.8 percent in November to 10.5 percent in December. Smaller increases were seen in Whiteside, Lee and Carroll counties during December. Whiteside was up three-tenths of a percentage point. Lee and Carroll saw half-point increases.

Statewide, the jobless rate rose from 8.3 percent to 8.6 percent in December. Online job opening advertising is an area tracked by the Illinois Department of Employment Security. That number came in at a robust 215,000, IDES said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The number of job openings show that Illinois employers are ready to hire, if they can find the right candidate,â&#x20AC;? IDES Director Jay Rowell said. Rowell attributed the high number of openings to a skills gaps created by the recession, and the willingness of job candidates to hold out for higher wages. Job seekers might want to know that the most advertised jobs were for truck drivers, registered nurses, retail sales clerks, retail sales supervisors, and marketing managers.

Winter weather draining blood supply nationwide STAFF REPORT news@saukvalley.com    EXT

Following are some of the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming blood drives:

Red Cross offers a World Tour of Taste

Another casualty of the winter weather: the emergency blood supply. Nationwide, about 600 blood drives â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which would have resulted in about 20,000 blood and platelet donations â&#x20AC;&#x201C; have been canceled this month. Platelet donors, as well as blood donors with the most in-demand blood types â&#x20AC;&#x201C; O positive and negative, A negative and B negative â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are urgently needed to give blood in the days and weeks ahead to offset the shortfall, the Red Cross said in a news release. Platelets, a key clotting component of blood often needed by cancer patients, must be transfused within 5 days of donation, so donations are constantly needed.

People who are 17 or older, or 16 with parental consent, weigh at least 110 pounds, and are in good health, should be eligible to donate blood.

ECONOMY

End of year likely saw strides from U.S. economy Economists forecast annual growth rate of 3.3 percent WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The U.S. economy likely grew solidly in the final quarter of 2013, momentum thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expected to carry into this year. Most economists think 2014 will produce the strongest growth since the

recession officially ended in June 2009. On Thursday, the government will make its first of three estimates of economic growth for the October-December quarter. Economists are forecasting an annual growth rate of 3.3 percent, after an even stronger 4.1 percent rate for July through September. For all of 2013, analysts think the economy grew about 1.9 percent. That would be below the 2.8 percent growth for 2012

as measured by the gross domestic product. GDP represents the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total output of goods and services. For all of 2014, analysts are more optimistic. Many foresee GDP growth of 3 percent or better. A key reason for their optimism is an improved outlook for the government sector. Overall growth was reduced by an estimated 1.5 percentage points in 2013 because of a drag from

higher federal taxes and deep government spending cuts. Those effects are expected to subside in 2014. This year, economists also think the economy will get a lift from continued gains in hiring. Further steady job growth would give more households money to spend and help lift consumer spending, which accounts for about 70 percent of economic activity. In addition, U.S. manu-

facturers are expected to get a lift from rising global demand. And at home, housing construction and auto sales, which showed strength last year, are expected to register further gains in 2014. Because of the stronger growth prospects, the Federal Reserve on Wednesday announced that it would continue to reduce the monthly bond purchases itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been making to try to boost the economy. The Fed bought $85 bil-

lion a month in bonds last year to try to keep long-term interest rates low. It announced an initial $10 billion reduction in December. And after its meeting Wednesday, it announced another $10 billion cut. That will put its monthly purchases at $65 billion. Many analysts think the Fed will keep paring its support at each of its meetings this year until it eliminates new bond purchases entirely in December.

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office took over. As Wilson exited I-88 at the Dixon interchange, a Lee County deputy saw her car, a gold 2005 Chevrolet Malibu, traveling south

and east of Dixon on U.S. Route 52. Every agency, Biffany said, has a different policy on pursuing suspects. Lee Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policy, in this situation, allowed for pursuit. According to a sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office news release, the deputy followed Wilson

as she turned south on Nachusa Road, east on U.S. Route 30, and north onto Route 52 again. Deputies laid out spike strips, but Wilson avoided them and continued heading north. At that point, an Amboy officer who was in the area spotted the car and

followed it as it headed back toward Dixon, according to the police report. Dixon officers, too, deployed spike strips near Bloody Gulch Road, and this time they worked. Dixon officers didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pursue â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it is against

their policy, Chief Danny Langloss said â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but Lee County sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deputies did. According to the release, deputies followed Wilson through Dixon before she finally stopped with a flat tire at Seventh Street and Jackson Avenue. Both she and a

female passenger were taken into custody. According to Lee County Capt. Joseph Brady, Wilson is wanted in Winnebago County for failing to appear on a charge of fleeing an officer. She also was driving with a suspended license, he said.

Did unions tacitly OK pension holidays? A

couple of weeks ago, I took some heat for a column I wrote about teacher pensions. I looked at the compensation for a teacher who had contributed $90,706 to the Teachers Retirement System during her 34 years of service. The 72-year-old retired in 2002 and now receives an annual pension of $66,519. To date, she has collected $649,504 in pension payments. If she lives to a normal life expectancy, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll collect a total of $1.8 million, according to the Illinois Policy Institute, a con-

done their part by making their contributions as required. But the politicians have failed miserably by taking holidays from making payments into the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teacher pension system. It is true that our state government has shorted the pension funds. No one can seriously disagree with that. But if teachers are so angry about the pension holidays, you would think their unions would have punished the politicians by withholding their usually generous political contributions.

servative Chicago-based think tank. Many readers objected to that column, which I wrote because of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pension crisis. The most common argument against my column: Teachers have

That didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in fact, quite the opposite. In the 2006 election, the Illinois Education Association, which represents 130,000 teachers, gave $2.1 million to candidates in state races, according to the National Institute on Money in State Politics. At the same time, the Illinois Federation of Teachers donated $1.7 million to politicians, including $515,669 to then-Gov. Rod Blagojevich. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s real money. Many of these very same politicians, including Blagojevich,

signed off on the pension holidays. To be fair, teachers unions look at more than pension issues when they donate money to campaigns. Their members also are interested in other issues, including charter schools, educational standards, their pay, you name it. By the same token, politicians have more to consider than pensions; schools, roads and police are other priorities. Yet the teachers unions maintain that before anything else, the state must abide by the state constitutional prohibi-

tion on impairing pension benefits, a provision subject to many interpretations. The unionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; argument would carry more weight if they had not showered contributions on the very same folks who shorted the pension systems. With their donations, did the unions tacitly approve the holidays? David Giuliani is a news editor for Sauk Valley Media. You can reach him at dgiuliani@ saukvalley.com or 800798-4085, ext. 525.

DEKALB

Neighbors: Malta man shot by police was off medications He told them he battled paranoid schizophrenia BY ANDREA AZZO aazzo@shawmedia.com

DeKALB â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Cameron Luptonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neighbors say the 28-year-old Malta resident was a shy man, and a great friend who told them he struggled with para-

noid schizophrenia. Police shot and killed Lupton on Tuesday when they say they found him attacking his father, Carl Lupton, and stepmother, Charlotte Lupton, with a knife at their home in the 1000 block of Quail Run in DeKalb. An autopsy showed Cameron Lupton died of a single gunshot wound to the neck. Toxicology reports will be

released in a couple of weeks. Police searched Luptonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apartment Wednesday at 104 1/2 S. Third St. in Malta and seized his car. Jackie Belmont and Steven Williams are both friends and neighbors of Lupton who live two doors down from his former residence. Belmont attended DeKalb

High School at the same time as Lupton, who was a 2004 graduate. She said Lupton, 28, told her about a week and a half ago that he had stopped taking his medication because it â&#x20AC;&#x153;made him feel sick to his stomach.â&#x20AC;? Lupton was a U.S. Army veteran who served in Afghanistan and was unemployed. He had become distant and depressed

in the past couple of weeks, and seemed much different than his usual friendly self, Belmont said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t angry or mad,â&#x20AC;? Belmont said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was just sad, depressed and mopey.â&#x20AC;? Williams said he hung out with Lupton at least twice a week. He said Lupton loved his family, especially his father, who would visit every other day.

Jerry Holbert, Newspaper Enterprise Association

A wonderful act of kindness What we think A father and son who rescued a Rock Falls woman from the bitter cold last week are heroes in our eyes, and in the eyes of our Facebook friends, too. Congratulations to Cliff and Matt Sexton.

T

wo snowplow operators who rescued a confused woman during last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sub-zero cold very likely saved her life. We speak of the fatherand-son team of Cliff and Matt Sexton. They were out in the early morning hours of Jan. 21, doing what they always do when it snows â&#x20AC;&#x201C; clearing the white stuff away so their customers could get out and about. But Cliff and Matt did not expect to see a woman, dressed in night clothes and wearing only one slipper, out and about when it was 15 degrees below zero. They got the woman, obviously confused, into the truck to warm up and took her to the police station. Officers called an ambulance, and the woman was taken to CGH Medical Center for treatment of exposure. Several days later, the woman, who has Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease, was reported in stable condition. For their quick thinking and willingness to get involved, Cliff and Matt Sexton deserve the com-

munityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s praise. More than 40 Facebook friends of Sauk Valley Media have already weighed in with words of thanks for the Sextonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; good deed. Some examples: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aw, that poor woman.

Thank [you] so much for having a kind heart.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were definitely her angels that night.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good job, guys!â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bless you both!â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stories like this make me proud to be a Rock Falls native. God bless the Sexton family!â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those men are such heroes. My prayers and thoughts go out to her [the woman] and her family.â&#x20AC;? Matt Sexton posted this response: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thanks to all of you for showing your appreciation toward us. We were in the right place at the right time!â&#x20AC;? We join the community in congratulating Cliff and Matt Sexton for their wonderful act of kindness.

Legislature should protect abortion rights EMILY SPANGLER Sterling

The Illinois Legislature is going back into session soon, and we have issues to tackle, including the minimum wage and the progressive income tax. It is important that lawmakers keep their focus on those issues and not on attacking womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reproductive health. Jan. 22 was the 41st anniversary of Roe vs. Wade. While the majority of Americans celebrate Roe and [abortion rights], there are still people, including lawmakers, who look to attack Roe. In the past 3 years, there have been 205 abortion restrictions passed in state legislatures across the country. Thankfully, Illinois is not a state that is looking to attack [abortion rights]. I encourage lawmakers to not introduce a 20-week ban on abortions that are targeted at young, low-income women; mandatory ultrasounds that invade a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s privacy; or bills that would shut down abortion clinics. Illinois is a state that values womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health, and we should not change our ways. As a high school stu-

dent, woman, and Illinoisan, I encourage lawmakers to keep their focus on issues such as the minimum wage and the progressive income tax, not attacking womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reproductive health. Not only will young women appreciate your focus, but so will your mother, your wife, and your constituents.

Possible plan for the postal delivery woes JOHN NEAHRING Sterling

In a ZIP code area where there are six or more carrier routes, would it be possible to have one of the routes down on Monday, a different route down on Tuesday, a third route down on Wednesday, and so on through the rest of the week? This arrangement would allow having approximately one-sixth fewer carriers, one-sixth fewer vehicles, one-sixth less vehicle maintenance, and eventually less pension obligation. I think that this arrangement would save a lot more money, instead of shutting down all of the routes on Saturday. Would this alternating arrangement be doable, or would there be too many unforeseen problems?

New law? Time to change it No permits yet, even as gun law faces alterations

dougFINKE

So much for the notion of seeing how a law works before trying to change it. Or, in this case, just because no oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been issued a concealed carry permit yet is no reason to sit back and accept the status quo. A number of bills have already been introduced to change Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; new concealed carry law, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still 3 weeks to go before the deadline for introducing legislation this year. Just last week, bills were introduced to allow concealed weapons at special events that serve alcohol, in medical facilities, and at certain public events. On the other side, a bill was introduced last week to reverse the concealed carry sign process, meaning places where concealed weapons are allowed would have to post signs rather than the other way around. Just because the bills were introduced in no way means they will be approved or even get much of a hearing. In fact, after the tortuous process of approving concealed carry a year ago, legislative leaders may decide to just leave

well enough alone until permits are actually issued and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a better sense of what might have to be changed. In the meantime, lawmakers can still use their bill introductions in their campaign materials. And speaking of what are sometimes called â&#x20AC;&#x153;brochure billsâ&#x20AC;? around the Capitol, legislation has been introduced in the House to cut lawmaker pay by 10 percent and eliminate the stipends paid to committee leaders. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s betting you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see either of those on lists of new laws passed by the General Assembly.

%CLECTICLIST OFREFORMERS The folks promoting a constitutional amendment to change the way legislative district boundaries are drawn have a lengthy (and eclectic) list of supporters. The list includes David Axelrod, a former adviser to Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama; and Ron Gidwitz, a former GOP candidate for gover-

nor and currently finance chairman and co-chair of Bruce Raunerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign for governor. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s covering quite a bit of ideological ground. Interest groups supporting the amendment run the gamut from the Illinois Public Interest Research Group to the Illinois Chamber of Commerce and Illinois Manufacturersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Association. For what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth, PIRGâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website includes the line â&#x20AC;&#x153;standing up to powerful interests.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly what all of these people and groups are doing, because there are some very powerful interests who are completely happy with the way legislative boundaries are drawn now. Currently, that means the Democratic Party. However, there was a time when the Republican Party was able to draw the maps, and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recall hearing any complaints about the process then.

0ARSING2AUNERS ANTI UNIONRHETORIC There was an interesting line in a recent ad for Bruce Rauner, candidate for the Republican nomination for governor. Rauner, of course, has repeatedly denounced the â&#x20AC;&#x153;union bossesâ&#x20AC;? who, he says, actually run Springfield. This has given public employee unions ammunition to charge that Rauner will dismantle public

employee unions if elected. Plus, apparently concerned that Rauner could well win the GOP primary, unions are planning their own antiRauner media campaign, according to numerous news reports. But a recent Rauner ad contained this line, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The problem isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t government workers, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s union bosses.â&#x20AC;? Which is an interesting distinction. Particularly since most state workers, at least, belong to a union. And the bosses of those unions fight to get raises for the workers and preserve their pension benefits. You might recall that Rauner wants to freeze current pensions and move everyone into a 401(k). Rauner may want to make a distinction between the union bosses and the union members, but it may not work.

Some time ago, state Sen. Tim Bivins was our organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s speaker. We thought having a local senator speak would help him get his message out about where he stands on the military, and the love and support our service personnel deserve. I thought he did a very

good job. So, I asked him why Illinois, I think one of only three states, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jessicaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lawâ&#x20AC;? for sexual assault for children? He said he was putting together a bill that was just as good. Not. I still see in the paper where child molesters and priests are given a slap on the wrist; most as second- or more-time offenders. Why? This â&#x20AC;&#x153;as good as lawâ&#x20AC;? is not. First-time offenders should go to jail 60 years minimum â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not a second

or third time to molest little, helpless victims of the most horrendous crime, second only to murder. I think a new law â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jessicaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lawâ&#x20AC;? should be put in force in Illinois. I also think anyone convicted of domestic violence or rape should get similar sentencing. As my mother used to say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take much of a man to hurt or rape a woman.â&#x20AC;?

women. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t speak well of a state that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t protect its vulnerable ones. Write your representatives and get new laws enacted. One more thing. This paper should print Jessicaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Law and Mr. Bivinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; law, and let the voters see how ill it is failing our children. This paper is doing a very good job in letting â&#x20AC;&#x153;allâ&#x20AC;? people voice their opinions as our national Constitution allows. Thanks again.

WISCONSIN DELLS, Wis. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Winter in Wisconsin is for more than cold hands and shivering. It is for fun. While the indoor waterparks at Wisconsin Dells are a draw, when it is chilly outside, snow and ice become more than driving hazards. Skiing, snowboarding, and snow tubing, along with getting out the snowshoes, make quite a list of seasonal activities. Added to that is a lesserknown sporting opportunity in the area â&#x20AC;&#x201C; trail and sleigh rides and zip line tours. The Chimney Rock Snowshoe Zip Line begins at Vertical Illusions with a shuttle ride to Chimney Rock Park. From there, the group will snowshoe to the top of Chimney Rock Castle. The hike takes a half-hour. The zip line tour costs $99 and takes 1.5 to 2 hours going through Quaking Aspen Grove, over Friendship Lake Canyon, and down to Sunset Cliff. Along the way, those on the tour will stop at platforms in the trees, while their guides talk about the park. The tour has a weight restriction of 250 pounds, but no age limit. Reservations are recommended;

&RIDAY *ANUARY 

Husband destroys trust trying to save business Dear Abby: During the past 3 years, my husband and I managed to save about $45,000 for a down payment on the purchase of a new home. (We each put in about half.) Early last month, I asked my husband if he liked one house we had just seen, and he confessed that he had taken all the money we had saved and put it into a struggling business he has had for 12 years and which I helped him run on weekends. I am devastated! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just the money, which was for our future. The plan was to purchase an affordable home and pay it off quickly. But he lied to me, strung me along and stole from me, because half of that money was mine. There is no chance

Dear Abby: I am blessed to have many friends who invite me to parties and gatherings. I met a guy at one of them and we had a nice conversation. A few days later he called me. he can repay it. My trust He said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d gotten my in him and our marriage number from our mutual is broken. What are your friend. (I had given her thoughts? permission to give it out â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Crushed in to people who had been Palm Harbor, Fla. at the party.) We talked some more Dear Crushed: Because and kept talking and the basis of any successexchanging emails over ful partnership â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and that the course of a couple of includes marriage â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is months. Because it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t trust, I think you have every day or even every some serious thinking to week, I thought we were do. And if you decide to just friends.

At the next party he asked me out on a date â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a romantic date. This is a problem. I identify as an aromantic asexual. I do not feel the things he does. Having to explain my sexual orientation to people is embarrassing. Any advice on how to convey this without ruining the friendship we have developed? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Embarrassed in Indiana Dear Embarrassed: Try saying it this way: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m flattered, but it would be better if we remain just friends. I think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re terrific, but I am not a romantic or sexual person. It has nothing to do with you. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the way I am and always have been.â&#x20AC;?

Dear Abby: I am a strong and independent 18-year-old girl. I have been with my boyfriend, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cash,â&#x20AC;? for 4 years, and he has been an everpresent rock in my life. His 21st birthday is soon, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid it may alter our relationship, because of things he will be able to do, such as drinking. I want some form of commitment from him before his birthday, so I can be sure heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as serious about our relationship as I am. Cash says he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to make a commitment now, because he wants time to be young and stupid. I understand where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coming from, but it seems like heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s setting us up for disaster. Why canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we be young

and stupid together? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not asking for marriage now, but a long engagement would prove his devotion to me. Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t this a reasonable expectation? If it is, how do I tell him? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Wants Some Commitment in Nebraska

BOSTON

U.S. prosecutors seek execution of marathon bombing suspect Attorneys cite his ‘lack of remorse’ BOSTON (AP) – Federal prosecutors Thursday announced they will seek the death penalty against 20-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in the Boston Marathon bombing, accusing him of betray-

ing his adopted country by ruthlessly carrying out a terrorist attack calculated to cause maximum carnage. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s decision to press for Tsarnaev’s execution was widely expected. The twin blasts last April killed three people and wounded more than

260, and over half the 30 federal charges against Tsarnaev – including using a weapon of mass destruction to kill – carry a possible death sentence. “The nature of the conduct at issue and the resultant harm compel this decision,” Holder said in a statement of just two terse and dis-

passionate sentences that instantly raised the stakes in one of the most wrenching criminal cases Boston has ever seen. Tsarnaev has pleaded not guilty. No trial date has been set. In a notice of intent filed in court, federal prosecutors in Boston listed factors they contend justify a

sentence of death against Tsarnaev, who moved to the U.S. from Russia about a decade ago. “Dzhokhar Tsarnaev received asylum from the United States; obtained citizenship and enjoyed the freedoms of a United States citizen; and then betrayed his allegiance to the United States by kill-

ing and maiming people in the United States,” read the notice filed by U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz. Prosecutors also cited Tsarnaev’s “lack of remorse” and allegations that he killed an MIT police officer as well as an 8-year-old boy, a “particularly vulnerable” victim because of his age.

Brewmaster crafts career

Cold streak puts freeze on restaurant business

Brew area walled with windows so process is visible BY MARK BLACK $AILY(ERALD

APERVILLE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever dreamed of turning your hobby into a full-time profession, it probably wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt to take a few cues from Ken McMullen. Twenty years ago, the Naperville man was working in quality assurance for a computer reseller when he started brewing beer during his free time at home with a 5-gallon kit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From the first time I tried [brewing] beer, I was mesmerized,â&#x20AC;? McMullen said. After brewing his first batch at home, he thought to himself, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can make a living at this.â&#x20AC;? Turns out he was right. The key moment came in 1999, when McMullen took an intensive 2-week course in brewing beer at the Siebel Institute of Technology in Chicago. Inspired by the possibilities, he quit his job and headed to Southern California, where he and his brother opened Temecula Brewing Company. McMullen brewed beer there for 3 years before

In this Dec. 30 photo, Brewmaster Ken McMullenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brew area is walled with windows so patrons at the Hopvine Brewing Co. in Aurora can see the behind the scene working of the craft brewery as they dine and enjoy some beers. returning to the Chicago area, where he ended up working at a national chain restaurant and then doing a bit of real estate work. Then he saw an ad for a job tending bar at the Limestone brewery in Plainfield. Because of his experience, he found himself becoming first the kitchen manager and eventually the breweryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brewmaster. The brewery closed in 2010, but McMullen was able to find a new brewmaster position at Hopvine Brewing Co. in Aurora, where he works to create and perfect brews to please area beer lovers.

He currently brews seven different beers and has plans to have 12 to 14 on tap, with four or five year-round drafts. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been working with area bars and restaurants to take on some of Hopvineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brews as well. His beers have some Serving the area

unusual names, including Splagna, a Germanstyle Kolsch; Urban Tumbleweed, a German-style hefeweizen; an American amber ale called Aurora Amber; and a Belgianstyle tripel, Brew Monkey. The latterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name came about as a mashup of sorts, McMullen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This beer wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t brewed by a monk, but it is brewed by a monkey,â&#x20AC;? referring to the Middle Ages when Catholic monks brewed beer, and himself, selfdeprecatingly, as the monkey. In addition to his work, he helped create a home brew club called PALE, or Plainfield Ale and Lager Enthusiast. He also helped start a charity craft brew fest called the Midwest Brewers Fest in Plainfield. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re interested in trying some of McMullenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brew, you can stop by the Hopvine Brewing Co., 4030 Fox Valley Center Drive.

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The homemade matzo ball and beef barley soups are lost on customers walking into Rascalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; NY Deli â&#x20AC;&#x201C; because there just arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t very many of them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After it starts getting really cold and the sun goes down, the people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to come,â&#x20AC;? said Randy Smith, manager of the restaurant in the Cincinnati suburb of Blue Ash. Across much of the eastern half of the country, bitter cold and snowstorms in recent weeks have put a chill on restaurants, bakeries and coffee shops, limiting the number of walk-in customers and shrinking tips. Some merchants report sales cut in half. The January deep freeze wrought by the polar vortex in the Midwest, a big snowfall in the

Northeast and abnormal cold and snow in the Deep South has moved many to hibernate. Only four people picked at pancakes and eggs during what should have been the morning rush at American Table Family Restaurant, a Toledo diner, while the temperature dipped to 9 below Tuesday. The nearly 40 inches of snow this month is a record for January. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of the regulars, I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen in a week and half, 2 weeks,â&#x20AC;? said owner Elton Bregu. Viven McKinney, a retired postal worker, stopped in for eggs and coffee only because he had just dropped his wife off at work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Otherwise, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d still be in bed,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like to be cold.â&#x20AC;?

The Age of Anxiety We live in perilous times. Rogue states with chemical or atomic weapons, fanatical terrorist groups spreading fear and hatred across the globe, and technology that changes too quickly for anyone to keep up with it are all part of our modern world. Our fears are stoked by the modern mediaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 24/7 news cycle and its insistence that something terrible is just around the corner. Even those who are not particularly tuned into the news are anxious; there is a certain anxiety that comes with our modern technology.The noise of the cell phone ringing is like an alarm going off and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often just as startling.The ping of your computer telling you that you have a new message pushes the same anxiety button, and since our phones allow us to be constantly connected we are now living constantly with EPEVQW FY^^IVW ERH E WIRWI SJ XMQI YVKIRG] 7S [LEX GER [I HS EFSYX EPP SJ XLMW# % ½VWX WXIT QMKLX FI XS GLSSWI QSVI WSSXLMRK VMRK tones or just to turn the computer and phone off for extended periods of time.We should also take time out of our busy schedules for solitude and quiet time, a time when we might commune with God or nature and our souls can be at rest. God does not want us to be anxious; be in His presence and trust in the Lord. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Christopher Simon â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.â&#x20AC;?

UKRAINE

&RIDAY *ANUARY 

WASHINGTON

More implicated in nuclear cheat probe Unclear if they are allegedly involved directly or indirectly

AP

An elderly couple walks past barricades Thursday in central Kiev, Ukraine. Ukraineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s embattled president Viktor Yanukovych is taking sick leave as the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s political crisis continues without signs of resolution.

Leaderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sick leave prompts guessing game for citizens President has faced 2 months of major protests in Kiev KIEV, Ukraine (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Amid the deepest turmoil since the Orange Revolution, President Viktor Yanukovychâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s announcement Thursday that he was taking indefinite sick leave prompted a guessing game among Ukrainians about what was happening to their country. Debate raged on whether he was just sick or whether he was leaving the limelight in preparation for something, possibly either cracking down or stepping down. Yanukovych has faced 2 months of major protests that sometimes paralyze central Kiev and have spread to other cities. The protests started after he backed out of a long-awaited agreement

to deepen ties with the European Union in favor of Russia, but quickly came to encompass a wide array of discontent over corruption, heavyhanded police and dubious courts. The official line is that the 63-year-old Yanukovych has an acute respiratory illness and a high fever. But the opposition isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buying it. Some say he is looking for an excuse to avoid further discussions with opposition leaders, which have done nothing to resolve the tensions. Vitali Klitschko, a leading opposition figure, has a more ominous theory â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the president could be pretending to take himself out of action in preparation for imposing a state of emergency. That has been a persistent worry of the opposition since violent clashes 2 weeks ago

killed three protesters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember from the Soviet Union itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bad sign â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a bad sign because always if some Soviet Union leaders have to make an unpopular decision, they go to the hospital,â&#x20AC;? Klitschko said. Yanukovychâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s press office says the president is still in charge of the country, but there was no indication of how long he might be on leave or how much work he would be able to do. He isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t known to have serious health problems, although his office says he has taken sick leave twice before â&#x20AC;&#x201C; once for a knee problem and the other time also for a respiratory illness. One political commentator suggested the announcement could be a ruse to take him out of power, as in the attempted coup against Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in 1991.

affects the mission, beyond requiring the remaining crew members to bear a bigger share of the work. The officials who disclosed the higher number cheating suspects spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to disclose the information by name while the investigation is ongoing. The Air Force announced Jan. 15 that while it was investigating possible criminal drug use by some airmen, it discovered that one missile officer at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Mont., had shared test questions with 16 other officers. It said another 17 admitted to knowing about this cheating but did not report it. The 34 officers had their security clearances suspended and they were taken off missile launch duty.

CHOOSE GAFFEY FOR HOME CARE

Lt. Col. John Sheets, a spokesman for Air Force Global Strike Command, which manages the nuclear Air Force, said he could not comment on the number of additional officers implicated in the cheating investigation since last week, but he said all are launch control officers at Malmstrom and all have been removed from performing that duty pending the outcome of the investigation. The Air Force has 450 intercontinental ballistic missiles, or ICBMs, on alert at all times, with a contingent of about 500 launch control officers, some number of which are unavailable on any given day due to illness or other reasons. So the number temporarily unavailable for duty because of the cheating scandal, at roughly 68, is substantial.

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The cheating scandal inside the Air Forceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nuclear missile corps is expanding, with the number of service members implicated by investigators now roughly double the 34 reported just a week ago, officials said Tuesday. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t immediately clear whether the additional 30-plus airmen suspected of being involved in cheating on proficiency tests are alleged to have participated in the cheating directly or were involved indirectly. Regardless, a doubling of the number implicated means that approximately 14 percent of the entire Air Force cadre of nuclear missile launch control officers, which numbers about 500, has been removed at least temporarily from active missile duty. It was not clear Tuesday how that

VATICAN CITY

Vatican bank admits widows victims of crackdown VATICAN CITY (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Dozens and perhaps hundreds of widows and Vatican pensioners recently came in for a rude surprise: The Vatican bank told them they had to close their accounts or risk losing access to their money â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all in the name of Pope Francisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; reform efforts, The Associated Press has learned.

The bank now says it was all a â&#x20AC;&#x153;technical errorâ&#x20AC;? and that the widows and pensioners are being kept on as clients. That reversal came despite the bankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highly-publicized plan to close so-called â&#x20AC;&#x153;lay accountsâ&#x20AC;? as it tries to mend relations with Italian authorities who have suspected that Italians were using the

bank as a tax haven. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all come as a big embarrassment for an institution that is trying to fend off accusations of mismanagement and corruption. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In some cases old ladies got nasty letters,â&#x20AC;? Max Hohenberg, spokesman for the Institute for Religious Works â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or IOR â&#x20AC;&#x201C; told The AP. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The fact

that a few dozen people were categorized in the wrong way and hence got a letter which was incorrect is a mistake which we have apologized for.â&#x20AC;? Bank President Ernst Von Freyberg penned a terse letter to these clients Sept. 19, telling them to come to the bank before Nov. 30 to transfer their money out because they

no longer fit the criteria of account-holders set by the board. He warned somewhat ominously that if they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t meet the deadline, their money would become subject to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;internal dispositionsâ&#x20AC;? of the bank, according to a copy of the letter obtained by AP. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say what those â&#x20AC;&#x153;internal dispositionsâ&#x20AC;? were.

Be done with Dunn already

A

dam Dunn says the White Sox’s acquisition of Cuban slugger Jose Abreu and re-signing of Paul Konerko doesn’t change anything about his primary goal, which is making the playoffs. “Whatever to win, I don’t care,” Dunn said during Soxfest. “There are no egos, especially with me and Paul. We talked about it when he was making his decision. Whatever is going to help us win that night, I know he’s for it, and I’m for it. That, to me, is a non-issue.” Give Dunn this: That’s the right thing to say. That’s the right attitude. But there are two problems with Dunn: One, I don’t have a lot of faith he’ll feel that way in June, if he isn’t getting the playing time he’s used to; and two, the Sox won’t make the playoffs until Dunn leaves. In 13 major-league seasons, Dunn has never made the playoffs. I don’t think Dunn has even made the postseason in a video game. That’s not a fluke. It can’t be, not after all these years, not when we’re talking about a guy who always bats in the heart of the order. The Sox need to dump Dunn, whatever the cost. ROSENBLOOM CONTINUED ON B3

ROCK FALLS – Francisco Arellano usually wrestles in the 195-pound spot. Thursday, he stepped up to 285 ... and he delivered. The Rock Falls sophomore overcame nearly getting pinned in the second period to earn a one-point win, and help the Rockets to a 48-29 dual win over Newman at Tabor Gym. The double-dual also included Stillman Valley, which opened with a 43-34 win over Rock Falls before besting Newman 47-27. “We’re starting to wrestle the way I envisioned that we’d wrestle,” Rockets coach Derick Cox said. “I bumped four guys up

They’re learning how to win.” Leading 2-0 after a takedown late in the first period, Arellano found himself down 3-2 in the second period after Nyle Nestor nearly pinned him and earned three back points. Newman assistant coach Brock Rude felt that Nestor got the pin, and voiced his feelings to the referee.

“I didn’t feel like I was close to getting pinned,” Arellano said. “The only thing that came to mind was, ‘Get off my back and win.’” Arellano was able to turn the tables with a reversal, and led 4-3 after two periods. That score held up. Arellano has wrestled several times at 285. “It’s a hard challenge,” he said. “It’s harder to wrestle the way I want to, because they’re bigger and stronger. So, I have to adjust.” There were seven contested bouts between Newman and Rock Falls. The Rockets won four, and outscored the Comets 18-17 in those matchups. WEIGHT CONTINUED ON B5

Now she’s at a minimumsecurity prison in Florida, sentenced to 20 years. Her mother, Minnie Pearl Thomas, who had two previous drug convictions, received two life sentences with the possibility for parole after 40 years. Smith could have gotten a lighter sentence by testifying against her mother, but she refused.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Say goodbye to the NASCAR era when a driver, fresh off a satisfying, top10 finish, climbs from the car and raves about what a good points day it was. Winning is all that matters under the latest and most radical change to the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overhauled championship format announced Thursday is a 16-driver, winner-take-all elimination system designed to reward â&#x20AC;&#x153;the most worthy, battle-testedâ&#x20AC;? driver at the end of the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Riding around and being pleased because the [previous] format rewards consistency, those days are going to be pretty much over,â&#x20AC;? NASCAR Chairman Brian France said. The field, expanded from 12 to 16 drivers, will be whittled down to a final four through eliminations after every three races of the 10-race Chase. The remaining four drivers will go into the season finale with an equal chance to win the championship: The first of the four to cross the finish line will be crowned Sprint Cup champion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No math. No bonus points. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as simple as it gets,â&#x20AC;? France said. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the fourth change to either the points or championship

For 28 years prior to the Chase, consistency reigned, as the champion was the driver with the most points at the end of the season. That ended a year after Matt Kenseth won the 2003 title with a single victory, and France began his pursuit of creating â&#x20AC;&#x153;Game 7 moments.â&#x20AC;? Along the way, he has pushed his agenda of wanting aggressive drivers chasing wins. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get that under the new format, which makes settling for points pretty much pointless. Why? Because a win in the 26-race regular season virtually guarantees a berth in the Chase. Then, eliminations begin, and a driver can guarantee a trip to the

next round with a victory. Last August, Brad Keselowski chased Kyle Busch around Watkins Glen and declined to aggressively move his rival out of the way. Keselowski settled for second, racing for a good points day and declining to inflame his touchy relationship with Busch. But in doing so, he failed to win a regular-season race, and missed the Chase, making him ineligible to defend his title. Under the new format, a winless Keselowski would have no choice in that same situation but to bang fenders with Busch and go after the win. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly what France wants to see on the track each week.

Dominique CONTINUED FROM B1

Rodgers-Cromartie said he lost a bet when he challenged Thomas to throw a ball 60 yards from his knees, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and he just flicked it!â&#x20AC;? Yet, Thomas is the antithesis of the prima donna wide receiver who demands passes and attention. He never says a thing to the cornerback covering him, much less talk trash. It goes back to the values instilled in him by his aunt and uncle, Thomas said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It made me a stronger man and a better man,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;just being in that atmosphere, working harder, knowing that nothingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be easy.â&#x20AC;? Brown said it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t easy taking in another child, with three kids of his own and just one paycheck, but he found ways to make it all work.

He also found the money to keep Thomas involved in sports. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I truly believe his Christian upbringing and sports, playing basketball and football, contributed to him releasing a lot of the anger and anxiety that he had in him,â&#x20AC;? Brown said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He left it on the basketball court, on the football field, so it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get bottled up in him.â&#x20AC;? Thomas led all NFL receivers in TD receptions (14) and yards after the catch (718) this season, while grabbing 92 passes for 1,430 yards. In the playoffs, he has 15 receptions for 188 yards, and TDs in both of Denverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Watching him mature as a football player and as a person has been tremendous,â&#x20AC;? teammate Eric Decker said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The guy has so much talent.â&#x20AC;?

Likeable Dunn not worth price tag ROSENBLOOM CONTINUED FROM B1 General manager Rick Hahn continues fastforwarding change on the South Side, but it will be slowed as long as Dunn remains. If the Sox have to pay his salary to move him, then pay it. I tried to scream loud and often to get him traded last season. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a pleaser, not a teaser. But it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work. The Sox

werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to make a deal where they paid Dunn $15 million or $20 million not to play for them, even though thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a win right there. Chairman Reinsdorf doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like paying people not to work for him. I get that. But by keeping Dunn and forcing manager Robin Ventura to force Dunn into the lineup, the chairman might be paying a guy to stand in the way of someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development.

CompleteAutomotiveServiceShop ServingtheSaukValleyAreaforOver36Years!

And thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a third problem with Dunn: His power numbers with the Sox are the worst of his career. After three seasons, Dunnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sox slash line of .197/.317/.405 is the worst of any team he has played for. Maybe heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get better. The Sox are betting the last year of Dunnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 4-year, $56 million contract on it. But Dunn is 34, so good luck with that. I forgot â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a

fourth problem with Dunn: I like the guy. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always found Dunn entertaining, in a self-aware way. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s self-effacing, or at least honest about his failures. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unfiltered, and I like that. I like listening to Dunn. I like what he says, and I hate liking guys I want to trade. So Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to stop reading what Dunn says and get back to trading him.

The singleton describes the fit

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

Daisy Donovan, an Americanborn English television presenter, actress and writer, said, “All Bridget Jones did was give us a word for it (living alone) -- singleton -- which was the worst possible thing.” In bridge, though, being able to show a singleton is sometimes the best possible thing a player can do. Look at today’s North hand. After South opens one heart, what should North respond? The North hand is strong enough to force to game. It contains 14 support points (11 high-card and three for the singleton, given the known nine-card or better fit) and only seven losers (the number for a raise to game). If you use the Jacoby Forcing Raise, you could respond two no-trump,

but it is much better to jump to four diamonds, a splinter bid announcing at least gamegoing values, four or more hearts and a singleton (or void) in diamonds.

That reduces South’s losers to three: one spade, one heart and one club. He now knows that, if necessary, he can ruff his low diamonds on the board. South then uses some form of Blackwood to find out that his partner has the missing aces and spade king (never splinter with a singleton king) and bids seven hearts. After West leads the diamond king, how should South plan the play? The only danger is a 4-0 trump split. If East has all four hearts, declarer is down. But if West has them, South is safe as long as he starts with his trump king (or queen), keeping dummy’s ace and 10 over West’s jack. When East shows out, declarer finesses in hearts through West and claims all the tricks via two spades, five hearts, one diamond and five clubs. © 2014 UFS

Milestone at Musgrove Warriors upset Spartans to give coach 100th win By SVM Sports Staff

Prophetstown.

The Sterling Golden Morrison 44, West Warriors gave coach Carroll 24: The Mustangs Charlie Bishop his 100th dual victory Thursday, upsetting the fifthranked Sycamore Spartans 33-32 at Musgrove Fieldhouse. The Warriors won four of the first six contested matches, and also received a pair of forfeits to take a 30-9 lead. But things turned at 160 pounds, when Keegan Kaye was disqualified when the leg of Sycamoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Michael Beaudoin went into Kayeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mouth when the two were grappling on the mat. Kayeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss gave Sycamore six points, and cost Sterling three for a flagrant foul. The Spartans then won the next three weights, taking a 29-27 lead into the 200-pound match. But Will Canales received a forfeit at 220 to give the Warriors a 33-29 lead, and Cariel Beasley avoided the pin at heavyweight, giving up just three points in a 3-2 loss to seal the upset victory. Another key match for Sterling was at 195, when Bryant Lilly took topranked Tyler Barton into overtime before falling 5-1.
