SERVING DIXON AND THE SURROUNDING AREA SINCE 1851

UPDATE| BODY FOUND ON INTERSTATE 88

Another 911 call was made Motorist: ‘He was laying half in the road’ BY CHRISTI WARREN cwarren@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 521

DIXON – An inspection of 911 calls shows that at least three – not two – motorists alerted police the night of

Nov. 12 to the presence of a man on the ground and waving to drivers alongside Interstate 88. The calls were made almost 12 hours before the body of Lee Catlin, 65, was found in a ditch

near the road. The autopsy showed that Catlin had died of hypothermia. A longtime retired teacher from Bettendorf, Iowa, Catlin was clothed in one shoe, socks, sweatpants,

a shirt and a jacket. The temperature in Dixon the night he died dipped into the midteens. At the time of his autopsy, Catlin had a blood-alcohol content of 0.105, higher than the legal limit. He also was found to have severe cirrhosis of the liver.

WEATHER | DEEP FREEZE

The 911 recordings, obtained through a public records request, show that at 8:46 p.m. Nov. 12, 20 minutes after the first 911 call was placed, another motorist made a 911 call describing a man lying on the road, gesturing near mile marker 51.5. ANOTHER CONTINUED ON A10

An eagle soars above the steamy Rock River on Monday morning, leaving its frost-covered nest in Lawrence Park. Sauk Valley residents woke up to the coldest temperatures in the region. BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 525

The temperature plunged to minus 27 at the Whiteside County Airport in Rock Falls early Monday. Even the weatherman admits that was unexpected. “You had the coldest air in the Midwest,” said Andy Ervin, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in the Quad Cities. “It was pretty remarkable. No other place was close to what you saw in Rock Falls and Sterling.”

The forecast Today – High of 26 degrees; 4 to 8 inches of snow Wednesday – High of 15, but low plummets to minus 13 Thursday – Colder, on the whole; high of 6, low of minus 4 The temperature hit its low about 7:30 a.m. Towns such as Mount Carroll, Princeton and DeKalb saw temperatures nowhere near that low. Why the difference? Unlike the others nearby towns, Sterling and Rock Falls are in the Rock River Valley, and a combination

of circumstances, including calm winds and fresh snow cover, allowed temperatures to plummet, said Mike McClure, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in the Quad Cities. “It was just the perfect setup,” he said. “The dense, cold air settled in the river valleys, and you had no

wind to scour out that cold air.” The phenomenon applied to other areas. For instance, Rockford, which the Rock River cuts through, saw a temperature of minus 16 shortly after 7:30 a.m., while the temperature was minus 12 in Freeport to the west and minus 8 in Marengo to the east. By noon, the temperature in Sterling and Rock Falls had risen to 7 degrees, similar to other towns in the area.

POLITICS | CONGRESSIONAL FUNDRAISING

Bustos ahead in race for money Kinzinger’s haul in 2013 dwarfs rival’s BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 525

U.S. Rep. Cheri Bustos, a Democrat whose district includes Whiteside County, is far ahead in fundraising over her Republican rival, former Rep. Bobby Schilling. This year’s race is a rematch in the 17th Congressional District. In 2012, Bustos ousted then-incumbent Schil-

The Colona Republican started his campaign in July. Friday was the deadline to file the latest reports with the Federal Election Commission. RACE CONTINUED ON A11

ROCK FALLS – In recognition of the passion and dedication local Girl Scouts and their volunteers have displayed, the regional powers-that-be are opening a service center to provide assistance, support and encouragement. “We’re opening a service center in Rock Falls because we have just a really dedicated corps of volunteers, troop leaders, Scouts and families in the area, and they’ve been very vocal about having a Girl Scout presence in their community,” Ann-Marie Soderstrom, public relations manager for Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois, said Monday. The nearest service centers now are in Freeport and Rockford. New CEO Fiona Cummings, who took office in the fall, said at the time that her goals for the organization were to boost volunteer and girl recruitment, increase community partnerships, and improve resources for current volunteers. It is hoped the center can help accomplish those goals. Cummings “heard the groundwell of support [for a local service center] and listened,” Soderstrom said. “This is just proof that people in the Rock Falls area feel strongly about Girls Scouts, and that Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois is just as committed to them, and that’s why we want to be there,” Soderstrom said.

Unions, nonprofits seeking increased wages for caregivers SPRINGFIELD (AP) – Union leaders and nonprofit groups are asking Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn to support an effort to increase wages for people who care for the developmentally disabled. The efforts comes on the heels of Quinn’s push to increase Illinois’ minimum wage, from its current $8.25 to $10 an hour, and is likely to be a divisive issue ahead of the November election. The “Care Campaign� plans to deliver an estimated 10,000 postcards to Quinn’s office today to urge him to support the effort to increase caregivers’ wages. The plan would establish starting wages for such workers and increase the amount Illinois gives to nonprofit groups that have state contracts to care for the developmentally disabled. Quinn spokeswoman Brooke Anderson did not immediately respond Monday for comment as to whether the governor supports such an initiative. A recent Illinois Association of Rehabilitation

Facilities survey puts the wage of caregivers working at community-based developmental disability at $9.35 an hour, which it says leads to workers taking on overtime hours and second jobs or relying on food stamps. Anders Lindall, spokesman for AFSCME, the state’s largest employee union, said Illinois has not increased reimbursement for such nonprofit groups to correspond with the cost of living increase, causing wages to fall behind. AFSCME represents some 5,000 workers employed by community-based nonprofit agencies, Lindall said. State Sen. Dan Kotowski, chair of the Senate appropriations committee, noted “the playing field hasn’t been level for people who work for community-based agencies versus those who work directly for state agencies.� But some lawmakers argue that the state, which faces roughly a $6 billion backlog of bills this year, must deal with existing obligations before taking on new ones.

The â&#x20AC;&#x153;plusâ&#x20AC;? refers to the fish and small animals that will be sold at the store, which will be in the 6,000-square-foot space immediately south of County Market that once was occupied by Dollar Video.

Although pet supplies are readily available at several local stores, Dixon has been without a small animal pet store since Lorneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fish Hatchery and Pets closed in summer 2012.

Merger proposal presented to Dixon City Council City administrator supports co-op; commissioner wary of 3-year deal BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 529

DIXON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A formal proposal for the merger between Dixon Main Street and the Dixon Riverfront Commission could be given to the city council during its next meeting. Main Street Executive Director Josh Albrecht and Mike Venier, vice president of the Main Street board of directors, gave a presentation to the Dixon City Council on Monday night about how the proposed merger would work. Main Streetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal will be to have a formal proposal ready to be given to the city council Feb. 17, Albrecht said. The proposed merger, a 3-year contract between the city and Main Street, would include Main Street absorbing the Riverfront Commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s responsibilities, as well as creating a new position for an events and marketing coordinator. Main Street requested

that the city contribute $15,000 annually for that new position. Main Street would match that or possibly exceed it, Albrecht said. Main Street suggested that the Riverfront Commission could still be kept â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if the city wanted â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to serve as an expert commission, similar to the History Preservation Commission, Albrecht said. In the proposal, Main Street would take over responsibilities for marketing, maintaining and operating Heritage Crossing, in addition to its work to develop and promote the downtown. Main Street would give quarterly presentations to the city council, in addition to regular contact with City Administrator David Nord. In the proposal, John Groshans, who is currently contracted by the Riverfront Commission to maintain Heritage Crossing, would instead be contracted by Main Street. Groshans would

The Dixon City Council approved an ordinance that changed part of its budget process from an appropriations system to a budget system for financial planning and management. The appropriations system lets the city allocate the maximum it could spend for a project, Mayor Jim Burke told Sauk Valley Media earlier this month, while the budgeting system lets the city allocate

continue his responsibilities on the riverfront, but also extend the custodial duties to the downtown area, Albrecht said. Groshans had requested an increase from $14,000 a year to $16,000 year for the additional work, said Police Chief Danny Langloss, who served on the task force that recommended that merger. That position would be paid for from the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s riverfront account, which Main Street would raise funds for by selling engraved bricks along the riverfront, Albrecht said, but would cost the city

about $65,000 a year if it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t contracted out. It would take Main Street about a year to determine the best practices for running both downtown and the riverfront as a unified organization, Venier said. So the real progress and benefit to the merger might not be seen until the second and third year of the contract. Commissioner Colleen Brechon was concerned about entering a 3-year contract and contributing $15,000 a year without seeing specifics about the benefits or increased

what it expects the cost to be. The city council also approved the contract between Dixon Tourism and Midwest EntertainERS)NCFORFOURMUSICAL tributes, which will be fundraisers to help build the President Ronald Reagan Lifeguard Statue at Lowell Park. The city will unveil the proposed design for the statue during a press conference at Dixon City Hall on Thursday. events or exposure for the riverfront that would result from the new position. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not quite sure Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m on board, because I think that Main Street is getting a lot of money from the city of Dixon, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re asking for more,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot of organizations out there that would love to just start up a new position and and ask us for $15,000.â&#x20AC;? In a memo to the City Council dated Jan. 31, Nord supported the merger for, among other reasons, costs savings

and promoting the downtown TIF district. The risk for the city is reduced, Nord said Monday night, because a single event can bring between $5,000 and $20,000, depending on size, in sales tax revenue the city wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t otherwise see. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just from a money standpoint, I have no fear of the fact that this money will be realized,â&#x20AC;? he said. While $15,000 a year isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a significant portion of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget, it was still a lot of money, Brechon said, and she wanted to see more specifics about what the new position would add. Among the ideas Main Street was considering for the riverfront, Albrecht said, was a miniature golf outing or a soda fest, similar to a beer or wine fest, but family-friendly. Main Street would also review the contracts for weddings or other events on the riverfront to maximize revenue and efficiency, Venier said, which is something that couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be fully realized until the second year of the contract.

New joint fire department position now in writing Council puts deputy chief in municipal code BY PAM EGGEMEIER peggemeier@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 570

STERLING â&#x20AC;&#x201C; When an intergovernmental agreement created the Twin City Joint Fire Command, it called for the appointment of deputy chiefs in Sterling and Rock Falls. On Monday, the Sterling Council passed an ordinance to put the position in its municipal code. When the fire departments officially merged

their administrative functions last September, Chief Gary Cook said the creation of the two deputy chief positions were the biggest changes the consolidation would bring to daily operations. Mike Dettman of Sterling and Bill Millby of Rock Falls, had been captains of their respective departments before being named deputy chiefs. Dettman and Milby are responsible for

coordinating responses to emergency situations, leading the inspections process, and heading up educational programs and fire prevention efforts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This just reduces the number of captains from four to three and establishes the deputy fire chief in the code,â&#x20AC;? City Manager Scott Shumard said. The council also approved an ordinance to amend the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s liquor

In response, Illinois Valley Public Action to Deliver Shelter has expanded its Ottawa facility to include three family bedrooms and a playroom to better accommodate the growing number of families using the shelter program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to help keep family units together,â&#x20AC;? said PADS executive director Carol Alcorn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like to stay here because they get separated.â&#x20AC;? Since Sept. 1, the shelter has provided shelter, meals, security, and case management to 15 families who had 19 children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has been a growing need in our society and we are willing to try to meet the need,â&#x20AC;?

Audit Ogle sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funds O

n Oct. 19, 2011, the Ogle County Board created a new revenue source. It funneled that money to a new Administrative Tow Fund, and granted control over the spending of that money to Sheriff Michael Harn. Last week, a County Board member, Richard Petrizzo, called for a forensic audit of the Ogle County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department expenditures, including but not limited to the aforementioned tow fund. That fund takes in $350 fees from motorists whose vehicles must be towed, such as those involved in DUI arrests. The sheriff has discretion over the spending of the new revenue stream, which amounts to thousands of dollars. Petrizzo told the County Board that recent publicity over sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s department spending merits an audit. We agree. The publicity over the Ogle sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spending came mainly from Sauk Valley Mediaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reporting on Harnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spending decisions. One of the stories was titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Off the budget, little oversight; Sher-

Do repairs on entire city, not just downtown SANDRA ALCALA Dixon

After reading the Jan. 23 front page of the Telegraph, I had to write. The story was titled, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Easy access on the eyes.â&#x20AC;? Here we go again, to beautify downtown Dixon. My question is, What about the rest of Dixon, not just downtown? It seems the city council has blinders on, or tunnel vision, and sees no further. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d think with some

of the money from the Crundwell settlement, taxpayers would see some giving back. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really go downtown and feel money could be put in better places. I feel streets need to be addressed, not only on the north side but all over. Several years ago, we were made to annex to the city, only for one thing, the almighty tax dollar. The only thing I can say weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gotten out here were street lights. As far as our streets â&#x20AC;&#x201C; nothing. In 2012, Mr. Kuhn had an article on resurfacing streets. I was told by him that our street needed repair badly. Mr. Kuhn,

What do you think? Do you agree with this letter? Do you disagree with this letter? Let us know. Write your own letter to the editor and send it to: letters@saukvalley. com Mr. Ortgiesen, and Mike (head of street department) all came out and looked at our street. I was on the list for street repair. The fall of 2012 went; the spring of 2013 came. I kept being told in the spring it could be started. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re now in 2014. In

what spring, Mr. Kuhn, was this to happen? It goes to show youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re good for your tax dollars, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appreciate people looking me in the face and telling a bald-faced lie. Oh, and to the people worried about property values because of wind farms, too bad. No one cares; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not their property. Once again, the almighty dollar talks. We know firsthand; we have an asphalt business in our backyard, i.e., end loaders roaring, alarms beeping, piles of broken asphalt, concrete; you name it, all in a residential area.

Without a doubt, the most overlooked aspect of Bruce Raunerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s multimillion-dollar TV ad buy has been his advertising campaignâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s repeated attacks on Gov. Pat Quinn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Career politicians are running our state into the ground, and Pat Quinn, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at the top of the heap,â&#x20AC;? Rauner says in one of his ads that have permeated the airwaves since last November. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pat Quinn, a career politician who failed to deliver term limits,â&#x20AC;? a Rauner TV announcer declares in another spot. The millions of dollars worth of ads are supposedly aimed at Republican primary voters, but, obviously, everybody else in the state is seeing them as well. And Quinn, who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a well-funded primary opponent, hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bothered to rebut any of Raunerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s multiple attacks. That could have been a huge mistake, particularly considering Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; persistently high unemployment rates, the hostile national climate, the never-ending negative stories about the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finances, and Quinnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 4-year history of low job-performance scores. If a new Capitol Fax/ We Ask America poll is accurate, then Raunerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s months-long unrebutted attacks have helped knock Quinn into a shockingly deep hole. According to the poll of 1,354 likely general election voters, all four of Quinnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potential Republican primary opponents have pulled ahead of the long-unpopular Democratic governor. The poll, taken Jan. 30, found that Sen. Bill Brady leads Quinn, 48 percent to 39 percent. Sen. Kirk Dillard and Treasurer Dan Rutherford are ahead of Quinn, 46-37. And Rauner leads the governor, 47-39. THE SELF-DESCRIBED party affiliation in the poll was 22 percent Republican and 38 percent Democratic, while 40 percent said they were independents. Nineteen percent of the polling universe was cell phone users. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pat Quinn has made a career out of overcoming the odds, and the electorate clearly know more about him than the others,â&#x20AC;? said pollster Gregg Durham. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When that balances out, we may see a dramatically different picture.â&#x20AC;? Yes, we may. But right now, voters know Pat Quinn, and they really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like him. According to the poll, which had a margin of error of plus or minus 2.7 percent, a whopping 59 percent of likely voters disapprove of Quinnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job

Survey: GOP hopefuls vs. Gov. Quinn Brady ................ 48% Quinn ................ 39% Dillard ............... 46% Quinn ................ 37% Rutherford ........ 46% Quinn ................ 37% Rauner.............. 47% Quinn ................ 39% Source: Capitol Fax/ We Ask America poll of 1,354 likely general election voters, taken Jan. 30; margin of error +/2.7 percent performance. A mere 29 percent approve of his job performance, and 12 percent were undecided. The poll has Quinn leading his opponents in Chicago, but nowhere else. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ahead of Brady 63-25 in the city, and his lead there is similar against the three others, as well. But the Republicans average a surprising 6-point lead over Quinn in the Cook County suburbs, which have been trending Democratic for years. THE MARGIN WAS much higher in the collar counties, where the Republican field led Quinn by an average of 12 points each. Downstate, though, Quinn is getting absolutely crushed. The GOP candidatesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; average lead is a gigantic 30 percentage points each. Among women, Quinn is doing just barely OK. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ahead of Brady and Rauner by a point, in front of Dillard by 2 points, and trails Rutherford by a point. Men, however, are going overwhelming for his Republican opponents. Brady leads Quinn by 24 points among men, Dillard leads him by 25 points, and Rauner and Rutherford lead by 21 among males. The Republican candidates are also whomping the governor among independents, where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re averaging a 32-point lead. The bottom line here is that the mostly unionfinanced TV advertising attacks on Bruce Rauner, which will supposedly kick off this week, had better do their magic and disqualify the newcomer, or the kabillionaire candidate will just stay on the air until the fall, keeping his advertising foot on the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already hobbled political neck for the rest of the year. It wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be pretty.

The members go to each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s homes for the evening meetings. Abby, the man who started these clubs is chauvinistic. He made a rule that women are not allowed in their own homes when their husbands host a meeting â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;no skirts allowed.â&#x20AC;? Therefore, even though the wife prepares everything for her husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

friend loses her keys, wallet, credit cards or iPad every day. I have suggested ways to avoid losing her keys. For example â&#x20AC;&#x201C; always use the same pocket in her purse or put them in a bowl by the door. She doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it. I think it is to spite me. She has now become resentful that I have become impatient about it. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m frustrated because this is something that can easily be fixed, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m tired of searching for 20 minutes for whatever she has misplaced.

should do is understand that your girlfriend isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t doing this to upset you, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible that she becomes as upset as you do when it happens. While I agree that part of the problem is that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disorganized, it could also be that her thinking is scattered. When she puts something down, she isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fully in the moment. Her thoughts may be on something else. Frankly, there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t anything you can do about it. If there is a solution to your girlfriendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problem, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that she should slow down and think about EXACTLY what sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing when sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing it, which is sometimes easier said than done.

Is it really good for the soul?

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

Supposedly, confession is good for the soul. But Peter De Vries, a novelist and an editor who died in 1993, said, “Confession is good for the soul only in the sense that a tweed coat is good for dandruff.” Regardless, I will confess to an error in today’s deal. Look at the South hand. You open one spade and partner raises to two spades. What would you do now? I was in Phoenix for the Fall North American Championships, playing for a few hours with friends. North was Eddie Kantar, a two-time world champion and an excellent teacher and author. We were playing against Eddie’s wife, Yvonne, and Vinita Gupta, who was fresh from winning

the Baze Senior Knockout Teams, her first national title. When Kantar raised to two spades, I thought I would keep my heart suit hidden, so jumped to four spades. Error.

Gupta led the diamond six. I put in dummy’s 10 and ruffed East’s queen. Then I led my low club, but West, who could see three major-suit winners, went in with her ace and shifted to a low spade. I had to lose two spades, one heart and one club. If I had sensibly rebid three hearts, North would have raised to four hearts. Then, it is true, I might have bid again, because North could have held, for example, kingthird of spades and king-fifth of hearts, when six hearts would have been excellent. But we would have stopped in five hearts. Then, after I drove out the club ace, cashed the heart ace, and discarded two spades on the king-queen of clubs, a spade-diamond crossruff would have produced 11 tricks. © 2014 UFS

Steroid use higher among gay, bi teen boys Overall, 21 percent say they have used CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Gay and bisexual teen boys use illicit steroids at a rate almost 6 times higher than do straight kids, a â&#x20AC;&#x153;dramatic disparityâ&#x20AC;? that points up a need to

reach out to this group, researchers say. Reasons for the differences are unclear. The study authors said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible gay and bi boys feel more pressure to achieve a bulked-up â&#x20AC;&#x153;idealâ&#x20AC;? male physique, or that they think muscle-building steroids will

help them fend off bullies. Overall, 21 percent of gay or bisexual boys said they had ever used steroids, versus 4 percent of straight boys. The difference was similar among those who reported moderate use â&#x20AC;&#x201C; taking steroid pills or injections up to

40 times: 8 percent of gay or bi teens reported that amount, versus less than 2 percent of straight boys. The heaviest use â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 40 or more times â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was reported by 4 percent of gays or bi boys, compared with less than 1 percent of straight teens. The study is billed as the

His feet toward the side of the road and his head is actually over the white line. His hands were forward, and he was gesturing. He was conscious and awake, but he was laying half in the road.â&#x20AC;? State police dispatcher: And that was 51.5 eastbound I-88? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, it was.â&#x20AC;? And was that just before 51.5 or, like, exactly there?

The motoristâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conversation with a Lee County 911 dispatcher was brief â&#x20AC;&#x201C; lasting 44 seconds. Brouch and his wife were driving home to Aurora from the Quad Cities when they saw Catlin in their headlights.

Brouch said in an earlier interview with Sauk Valley Media. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I pull over, and I had to back up just maybe 10 yards so I could read a mile marker.â&#x20AC;? 911 dispatch: Lee County 911 whereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your emergency? Brouch: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Um ... on 88 east at mile mark 51.5.â&#x20AC;? OK â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a man lying on the shoulder, waving his arms. No car around.â&#x20AC;?

17th district race Farm bill: 5 things to know considered close WASHINGTON

Legislation could reach President Obama this week WASHINGTON (AP) – Cuts to food stamps, continued subsidies to farmers and victories for animal rights advocates. The massive, 5-year farm bill heading toward final passage this week has broad implications for just about every American, from the foods we eat to what we pay for them. Support for farmers through the subsidies included in the legislation helps determine the price of food and what is available. And money for food stamps helps the neediest Americans who might otherwise go hungry. The legislation could reach President Barack Obama this week. The House already has passed the bipartisan measure, and the Senate is scheduled to pass the bill today after the chamber voted to move forward on the legislation Monday evening. Five things you should know about the farm bill: WHERE THE MONEY GOES: Most of the bill’s almost $100 billion-ayear price tag goes to the nation’s food stamp program, now known as SNAP, or the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. One in seven Americans, or about 47 million people, participates in the program. The legislation cuts food stamps by about $800 million, or 1 percent, by cracking down on states that seek to boost individual food stamp benefits by giving people small amounts of federal heating assistance that they don’t need. Much of the

This Oct. 16, 2013, file photo shows corn slipping through Larry Hasheider’s fingers as his load of corn is delivered to a grain elevator in Okawville. A massive farm bill heading toward final passage this week has broad implications for just about every American from the foods we eat to what we pay for them. rest of the money goes to farm subsidies and programs to protect environmentally sensitive lands. SUBSIDIES MAINTAINED: Farmers will continue to receive generous federal subsidies that help them stay in business in an unpredictable environment, but through revamped programs. The bill eliminates a fixed $4.5 billion-a-year subsidy called direct payments, which are paid to farmers whether they farm or not. New subsidies would require farmers to incur losses before they could collect from the federal government. The bill would also overhaul dairy and cotton subsidies and transition them into similar insurance-style programs. Most farmers would pick between a program that would pay out when revenue dips or another that pays out when prices drop. The legislation would also spend about $570

million more a year on crop insurance, which, on top of subsidies, protects farmers in the event of major losses. CRACKDOWN ON FOOD STAMP FRAUD: The Agriculture Department has been aggressively tackling food stamp fraud in recent years and the final farm bill will add to that. It would step up efforts to reduce fraud by retailers who sell food stamps, track SNAP trafficking and ensure that people who have died do not receive benefits. The bill would also prohibit lottery winners and convicted murderers and sex offenders from receiving food stamps. HEMP LAWS RELAXED: The bill would allow farmers to grow hemp, marijuana’s non-intoxicating cousin, in 10 states as research projects. Those states already allow the growing of hemp, though federal drug law has blocked actual cultivation in most.

Hemp is often used in rope, but has also been used to make clothing, mulch, foods, creams, soaps and lotions. VICTORY FOR ANIMAL RIGHTS GROUPS: The No. 1 farm bill priority for animal rights groups was to defeat a House provision that would have blocked an upcoming California law requiring all eggs sold in the state to come from hens that live in larger cages. Livestock groups have fought the state law, which will be a major burden for egg producers in other states who use smaller cages and still want to sell eggs to the lucrative California market. The animal rights groups won, and the provision blocking the California law didn’t make it into the final bill. The animal rights groups also won language that will make it a federal crime to attend an animal fighting event or bring a child to one.

As of Dec. 31, Bustos had $826,065 on hand, while Schilling had $271,037. In 2012, Schilling raised $2.5 million to Bustos’ $2.1 million. According to the online newsletter Cook Political Report, the 17th Congressional District leans Democratic, but is considered competitive in this year’s mid-term election. The election will be Nov. 4. In the 16th Congressional District, which includes Lee County, first-term Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Channahon, seems to have only token opposition in the March 18 Republican primary election from David Hale, founder of the Rockford Tea Party. In 2013, Kinzinger pulled in $955,317, light years ahead of Hale, who raised $4,822. In recent months, Kinzinger has attacked tea party-allied groups such as FreedomWorks for having an outsized influence in the conservative movement. Hale has criticized Kinzinger for not taking a tougher line against President Obama. In the 17th district, Bustos sent out a news release last month touting that she had pulled in more than $1 million in 2013, but she has been reluctant to talk about how she raises money. Many federal legislators go to party offices

near the Capitol to make fundraising calls to large political contributors. Asked in December about the number of her fundraising calls, her campaign wrote an email in reply: “The congresswoman shares the frustration of the public as it relates to campaign finance, which is why she’s backed several reform measures that would change this reality.” Russ Choma, a spokesman for the Washingtonbased Center for Responsive Politics, said all members of Congress are pressured to raise money. “I think most members of Congress really dislike doing it,” he said. “It’s a huge drain on their time. It’s distasteful for them to ask someone for money. … Politicians would rather talk about their positions than who it is they are asking for money.” Politicians also have public relations staff who want them to stick to their political message, Choma said. Talking about how they raise money isn’t seen as fitting that strategy. Kinzinger, who was elected to Congress in 2010, is in a district considered safe for Republicans. For fundraising, it helps that Kinzinger belongs to the Energy and Commerce Committee, which typically brings members big-dollar contributions from energy companies, Choma said.

A Southwest Airlines jet plane lines up for a landing at Love Field Monday in Dallas. Southwest Airlines plans to start nonstop flights between Dallas and New York and 14 other cities this fall, when federal limits on the airlineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home airport end. cities starting Oct. 13 and 10 more on Nov. 2. Those routes are currently off-limits to Southwestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Boeing 737

jets, because of a 1980 law designed to protect nearby Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. Under the Wright

Amendment, as the law was called, planes bigger than 56 seats could only fly from Love Field to other cities in Texas and a few nearby states. Southwest expects to add nearly 20 flights a day, to 146 daily departures in November, from Love Field, the airlineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eighth-busiest airport. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will mean the opportunity to grow and add airplanes and add jobs,â&#x20AC;? CEO Gary Kelly said. He said the additional flying wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t affect earnings through 2015. With the new long-haul routes, Southwest will compete against similar service from American Airlines Group Inc. at nearby DFW Airport.

Buyers finding bargain in Impala

At just $15,981, these nicely furnished 2013 Chevy Impalas are a flat steal! STERLING, IL. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the real deal. A Sterling auto dealer specializing in GM program car sales has just flexed its buying power with the purchase of many 2013 Chevrolet Impalas, and has started their price at just $15,981, thousands below Kelley Blue Book, and a far cry from their original sticker price when new. And what a buy. For 2013, GM stepped up their game in power and efficiency with a 302 horsepower direct injected 3.6-liter V6, paired to a

6-speed automatic transmission. The wonderful pairing gives the Impala a spirited performance that it may have lacked in the past, while still providing a respectable 18 city / 30 highway economy rating. But many owners are reporting even better mileage. Amenities include front bucket seats with center console, dualzone climate control, a six-way power driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seat with lumbar, automatic headlamps, fog lamps, tachometer, AM/FM/CD player with an auxiliary jack for your MP3, tiltsteering wheel with audio and cruise controls, remote locks and trunk release and cool 5-spoke alloy wheels. A nifty remote engine start will spoil you in the

winter time, where you can look out your window and start your car while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still in your jammies and have it toastywarm when you get in, or pre-cool the cabin on a sizzling summer day. No worries, because the car wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t budge â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;til it sees your key. Although this feature may seem a bit gimmicky at first, most who have enjoyed this in their last car demand it on their next. Climb behind the wheel and get comfortable in the heavily bolstered, 6-way power bucket seat, which will quickly become your favorite â&#x20AC;&#x153;easy chairâ&#x20AC;?. Wrap your fingers around the soft, leather-wrapped wheel and get ready to enjoy the buttery smooth ride of a magic carpet. And you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to go very far to realize youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in one solid car. On the road, the Impala graciously accepts all orders. And you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help being impressed by thepeaceand quiet inside

its spacious cabin, which the boys at GM went to great lengths to keep road and outside noises secret from its occupants. The Impala has long scored high safety marks, and the addition of StabiliTrak (electronic stability control) takes it up several notches. Hailed as the most important safety feature since the seat belt, this guardian angel-like technology helps keep your family safe by applying power and braking to individual wheels on icy or slippery roads â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a feat no human can perform. This cutting-edge safety feature helps keep the vehicle on a straight path and helps prevent spinouts due to driver overcorrection. Over 80% of all highway fatalities are single-car accidents, and the National Highway Administration estimates that over 10,000 lives would be saved annually if all cars were equipped with this technology. The 2013 Impala also touts 4-wheel disc brakes with ABS and traction control, while its front-wheel drive keeps power planted firmly to the pavement.

Buyers also enjoy the remainder of the Impalaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3YR/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper protection, plus the lionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s share of GMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comprehensive 5YR/100,000-mile power train warranty, whichcoversjustabout everything under the car that moves, nearly every seal and gasket, motor and transmission mounts and even the water pump. This spectacular warranty stays with the car regardless of the number of owners, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no deductible. To add the equivalent protection to the average used car would cost around $2,500. Wow. Today, smaller economy cars are fetching a premium, yet the Impala sacrifices only a few miles per gallon over a Honda Accord or Toyota Camry equipped with a small 4-banger. Before you pay too much for an import job, or spend $10,000$12,000 for a three or four year old, out-of-warranty used car, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well worth your time to check out these exceptionally clean, wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t-let-you-down, getyour-moneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s-worth 2013

Impalaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be dollars ahead. WHERE TO BUY. The Sterling Chevrolet PreOwned Supercenter in Sterling now offers a huge selection of 2013 Impala LTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in a rich variety of colors priced at just $15,981. With a small, friendly and knowledgeable sales staff, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find it refreshing to shop at a dealer who still does business in an honest and upfront way.

GIRLS BOWLING | NORTHERN ILLINOIS BIG 12 MEET

Second to one

Duchesses finish behind Morris for team title BY BRIAN WEIDMAN bweidman@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 551

Broncos not only team embarrassed

DIXON – For one game, Dixon junior Emily Quaco was the best there was at the Northern Illinois Big 12 girls bowling tournament. Over the course of six games, however, Quaco and the Duchesses took a back seat to Morris on Monday afternoon at Plum Hollow Lanes. The Redskins, led by individual champion Jessica Winter, rolled to top honors with a total pinfall of 7,230. It was well ahead of the runner-up Duchesses, who checked in at 6,485. Streator (6,167), Ottawa (6,091) and LaSalle-Peru (5,974) rounded out the top five teams. The tournament was sweet redemption for Morris, which was nosed out by Sycamore by one pin (6,336-6-335) in the 2013 conference tournament held in DeKalb. “The same six girls are here that were here last year,” Morris coach Harry Banks said, “so they definitely knew they had lost by one pin. We’ve been bowling good, so we definitely came in feeling confident about ourselves.” Leading the way for the Redskins was Winter, a junior who racked up a score of 1,291, 27 pins more than runner-up Quaco. It was a far cry from Winter’s previous experience at Plum Hollow, when she posted games of 149, 126 and 204 for a 479 series on Dec. 10. “Last time we were here during the season, I did really bad,” Winter said. “Today, I was kind of like, ‘Oh my, I’m doing good.’ Everybody was cheering me on, and I’m really happy my parents were here to watch me.”

T

he more I watched the Seahawks defense in the Super Bowl on Sunday, the more embarrassed I was for the Bears defense. The less hope I hold for the Bears defense next season, as well. And maybe the season after that. Sorry, but nobody in Chicago could watch the Seahawks on Sunday night and not wonder how close the Bears were to championship caliber – or how far away the defense is from just being cruddy. How soon the Bears could grow up to be like that? Can you say “light years,’’ boys and girls? The Bears defense did nothing to even the weakest offenses it faced last season, and there were the Seahawks killing the best in the NFL. If you’d seen the Seahawks throughout the season or postseason, you knew they were good. But if you were a Bears fan, who hadn’t cared until Sunday, you probably thought you were watching CGI. You had no idea that perfect, fierce tackling was legal in the NFL. Geez, you had no idea that even being in the TV shot to attempt a tackle was legal. The Seahawks seemed to have five players around the ball every time. That’s scheme, technique and athleticism. That’s also a three-and-out for the Bears defense. The Seahawks got Peyton Manning off his spot. The Seahawks hit Manning. The Seahawks hurried Manning. The Seahawks had – read my lips, Mel Tucker – a pass rush, and it created a 69-yard interception return that signaled a rout. When the Broncos completed passes, they were short and painful. Sometimes they were picked off. Sometimes they were punched loose. The Super Bowl MVP was a linebacker who had a pick-6 and a fumble recovery. Remember when the Bears linebackers used to do that? Remember when the Bears used to have linebackers? Remember when the Bears didn’t stand around and watch fumbles? The Seahawks defense obliterated the Broncos’ skill players. Wideouts, running backs, tight ends – didn’t matter. Manning couldn’t hit anything deep, and when he threw short, the Seahawks left corpses. The Seahawks delivered pain. They tackled, and when the Seahawks hit, the Broncos stayed hit. The Seahawks made the Broncos scream for mommy to make it stop. This, Bears fans, is what a defense looks like.

Bite worse than bark Bulldogs get hot, blow past rival Marcos BY LARRY BRENNAN lbrennan@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 550

POLO – Aquin didn’t make all of its shots, but for a while it seemed that way. The Bulldogs did make eight of their 11 3-pointers and rolled to a surprisingly easy 88-49 NUIC East win Monday night at Polo High School. “After about the 4-minute mark of the first quarter, they decided they were going to work a little bit harder, and play with a little bit more intensity, and give a little bit more effort, and we just did not match it,” Polo coach Matt Messer said. Overall, Aquin shot 58 percent (35for-60), while the Marcos shot just 36 percent (16-for-45). The Marcos, who are without starter

Iowa guard Roy Devyn Marble shoots against Illinois on Saturday in Champaign. The Hawkeyes showed the toughness that coach Fran McCaffrey questioned in holding on for a win against the Illini.

Proving ground BY LUKE MEREDITH !03PORTS7RITER

Did you know?

IOWA CITY, Iowa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Iowa answered coach Fran McCafferyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s questions about its toughness with an inspired win at Illinois over the weekend. Now thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something even more important the Hawkeyes have to figure out. Are they still good enough to push for the Big Ten title? No. 17 Iowa (17-5, 6-3 Big Ten) hosts Ohio State (17-5, 4-5) today and No. 10 Michigan (16-5, 8-1) on Saturday. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge chance for the Hawkeyes to pull away from the muddled middle of the Big Ten and stay within sight of league coleaders Michigan and Michigan State Iowa opened the week two games behind the Wolverines and Spartans, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve each beaten the Hawkeyes this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you look at whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behind us and whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in front of us, these are tough games that are coming

Iowa center Gabe Olaseni said. McCaffery was none too pleased with his team after a 71-69 overtime home loss to the Spartans last week. Michigan State held off the Big Tenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deepest team despite missing two starters, and McCaffery said afterward that his players were almost too â&#x20AC;&#x153;niceâ&#x20AC;? to the Spartans. There was nothing nice about what the Hawkeyes did to the Fighting Illini. Iowa opened like a team with something to prove to its coach, racing ahead 34-13. Illinois then responded with furious rally and

jumped ahead by as many as five points midway through the second half. It was then that the Hawkeyes showed the toughness that was missing against Michigan State. Iowa closed the game on a 20-8 run and clinched its first win in Champaign in 15 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It takes a mental focus and a will not to lose. You could tell everybody on our team had no intention of losing that game,â&#x20AC;? Iowa senior Devyn Marble said. One of the biggest reasons Iowa was able to rally at Illinois was Olaseni. Even though he isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t starting, Olalseni has grown into one of Iowaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most indispensable players. Olaseni, a junior who has backed up sophomore Adam Woodbury all season, posted career highs with 15 points and 12 rebounds. He is now averaging 6.6 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.3 blocks a game â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all career bests â&#x20AC;&#x201C; despite averaging less than 16 minutes.

Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Destinee Howard bowls during Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Northern Illinois Big 12 Meet at Plum Hollow in Dixon. Howard had a team-best pin count of 1,071.

CONTINUED FROM B1

In the dual meet between Dixon and Morris, held on Dec. 10, the Duchesses posted a 3,033-2,992 victory. It was all Redskins, however, in the conference tourney. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Harry has them rolling the ball really, really well,â&#x20AC;? Dixon coach Larry LaCoursiere said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was his day. They all bowled really well. We just werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to catch them. We had one bad game, but we did as

well as we could have expected.â&#x20AC;? The Duchessesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first game of 931 put them in ninth place among 10 teams, but they slowly worked themselves up over the course of the afternoon. Leading the way was Quaco, who opened with 178, but followed that up with a 269 and 195 for a 642 opening series. The 269 was the top game of the day. She converted spares in the third and fourth frames, and other than that, it was all strikes. The second series,

Quaco had games of 171, 205 and 246 for a 622 series. The 246 was the fifth-best game in the tourney, and the six-game score of 1,264 was a season-best by a whopping 117 pins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I slowed my feet down, so my timing was on,â&#x20AC;? Quaco said. Jenna Longan finished 11th overall with a 1,155 total, while Katlyn Bay took 14th with a 1,070. Rounding out the Dixon lineup were Ashley Currier (1,049), Margaret Thomas (999) and Michaela Bates (948). Sterling finished ninth

in a 10-team field with a 5,514 total. Destinee Howard (1,071) and Magan Tintori (1,066) led the Golden Warriors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to take more seasoning before we become competitive next year,â&#x20AC;? Sterling coach Dennis Black said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My two big guns, Magan and Destinee, did not have strong performances. They werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t horrible, but they just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do their usual dynamite kind of performance. The other four girls are still learning the fundamentals of the game.â&#x20AC;?

Polo’s AJ Dollmeyer (50) shoots while Aquin’s Micah Stovall defends during Monday’s game in Polo. The Bulldogs routed the Marcos 88-49.

Big loss could fuel Marcos in future BITE

CONTINUED FROM B1

Monday, it was virtually all Bulldogs in a battle of teams that are both receiving state Class 1A poll votes. Polo (19-4, 6-3) started fine, jumping in front 13-8 after an inside bucket by AJ Dollmeyer and bucket off a long rebound by Brian Cavanaugh. Dollmeyer scored a team-high 18 points, and Cavanaugh 10. Moments later, another Dollmeyer bucket made it 15-10 with 2:07 left in the opening quarter.

The rest of the game was Aquin’s. The Bulldogs (18-3, 8-0) outscored the Marcos 34-11 the rest of the first half and 44-23 in the second half. If Polo wants to win the loaded Forreston Regional, it might meet Aquin again, as well as Eastland and Milledgville, not to mention the host Cardinals. Despite Monday’s outcome, the Marcos like their chances. “I think we’ll come back and work extra hard,” Dollmeyer said. “I think we’ll bounce back and prove this was a one-

time thing. We beat them by 18, and we took them to double-overtime. We know we can beat them.” “I think this helps us. This will fuel us,” Brian Cavanaugh said. “Before, I think we were coming into games expecting to win. At the beginning of the season, we were hungry. We have to get back to that. We have to prove ourselves again.” Brad Cavanugh added eight points for Polo. Krisean Coffee, a transfer from Minnesota, led Aquin with 22 points. Aiden Chang added 15 points, Dean Sopcic 13, and Andrew Martin 12.

CHILD CARE

512

NO INDIVIDUAL, unless licensed or holding a permit as a childcare facility, may cause to be published any advertisement soliciting a child care service.* A childcare facility that is licensed or operating under a permit issued by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services may publish advertisements of the services for which it is specifically licensed or issued a permit. Sauk Valley Media strongly urges any parent or guardian to verify the validity of the license of any facility before placing a child in it's care. *Family homes that care for no more than three (3) children under the age of twelve or which receive only children from a single household, for less than 24 hours per day, are exempt from licensure as day care homes. The three children to whom this exemption applies includes the family's natural or adopted children and any other persons under the age of 12 whether related or unrelated to the operator of the day care home.
