DRIVER’S LICENSES

Group helps immigrants apply Volunteers to take them to appointments BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 525

STERLING – A local group is helping immigrants who are in the country illegally to get their driver’s licenses. This week, Theresa Hooper of Trabajando Juntos (Working Together) sent an email

to members of the group, asking them for help with taking immigrants to their appointments at motor vehicle offices. “Many people from our area [Sterling/Rock Falls] are applying for the driver’s licenses for undocumented people,” Hooper wrote. “However, some who already

have appointments made do not have anyone to take them to their appointments.” Three such appointments are set up for next week, she said. A state law to allow immigrants in the country illegally to get driver’s licenses took effect July 1.

Illinois, New Mexico and Washington are the only three states to allow such driver’s licenses. Proponents say “temporary visitor driver’s licenses” help to ensure that immigrants are trained and insured drivers, while opponents argue that giving such licenses makes states a magnet for those who break the law.

STERLING – The body found inside a fire-ravaged duplex at 204 W. Seventh St. early Tuesday has been identified as that of John Ennells, 58, of Sterling. No foul play is suspected in his death, officials said, and the fire appears to have started accidentally. Firefighters took about 40 minutes to control the fire after they responded to a call just after 3:30 a.m. Tuesday. No new information was a v a i l a b l e Wednesday about the fire’s cause, Deputy Fire Chief Mike Dettman said. T h e i n v e s t i g a - Mike Dettman Deputy tion is being Fire Chief conducted by the state fire marshal’s office. According to one neighbor, the duplex had been abandoned for about a year. Ennells’ body was found in a second-floor bedroom of the vacant three-story home. Another neighbor, Edward Bailey, lives in a house across the street. He said that last winter, Ennells had a generator running in the building, but this year he didn’t. Bailey said he didn’t know how Ennells kept warm. “I think he was unemployed,” Bailey said. “He was always riding a bike.” Bailey said that on a number of occasions, Ennells had fixed his car, and that the two had beers on the porch of the duplex. “This was probably an accident,” Bailey said. This was the fifth structure fire that local firefighters responded to within a week.

TAX SEASON

It’s once again time to submit Affordable Care Act means big changes next year BY DEBBIE BEHRENDS 3HAW-EDIA.EWS3ERVICE

The busy season for tax preparers has arrived. W-2s and 1099s have been sent out, the IRS is accepting returns and Americans are preparing to file their tax returns for 2013. The IRS expects to receive 6.1 million individual 2013 tax returns from Illinois. Local preparers say there aren’t any big changes this year, but advise taxpayers to be prepared for additional questions about health insurance when filing next season. “Nothing really jumps out at me as being very different this year,� said Pat Anderson, a Genoa certified public accountant. She said the software

The

second way of figuring the penalty is 1 percent of adjusted gross income, and the fine will be whichever is greater, Fluegel explained. The following year, the penalties increase to $325 per adult, $162.50 per child with a household maximum of $975, or 2 percent of the filer’s adjusted gross income. Penalties increase yet again the following year to $695 per adult, $347.50 per child with a household maximum of $2,085 or 2.5 percent of the filer’s adjusted gross income. Those who qualify for and accept government subsidies for health insurance have to be careful not to underestimate their incomes, Fluegel said. “Subsidies are available,� Fluegel said, “but if you get it wrong, you will pay for it at tax time. If you pay upfront and qualify for a subsidy, you will get a refund.�

ROCK FALLS

City steps up canal annexation efforts New ad hoc committee to meet Feb. 13 BY PAM EGGEMEIER peggemeier@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 570

ROCK FALLS – A committee has been formed to better coordinate the city’s recreational development efforts and expedite the possible annexation of 2.2 miles of the canal into the city. The Hennepin CanalTrails Committee will meet for the first time Feb. 13. One of its most important jobs will be to explore all angles of annexing the part of the canal that extends through the city, from the Arduini boat ramp to the state Route 40 bridge outside the city. The purpose of the new committee is to bring together separate bodies that had been working on closely related recreational projects, primarily the canal and a developing trail and bike path system. “Over the years, we had established various ad hoc committees for everything from the canal

and bike path to signage and lighting,� Mayor Bill Wescott said. “They all worked hard, but we think we’ll be better served bringing all those areas under one umbrella.� The committee is expected to dive right into the canal annexation work at its first meeting, Wescott said. Members will get survey results and other information ready for presentation at the City Council’s Committee of the Whole meeting at 6 p.m. Feb. 17 in council chambers. The survey was sent via residents’ utility bills. In addition to asking questions, the survey solicited public comments. The annexation of the canal was a priority of former Mayor David Blanton. Although the land runs through the city, it is not city property; it belongs to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. More than a decade of

Survey results Hennepin Canal annexation survey results will be discussed at the next Rock Falls Committee of the Whole meeting at 6 p.m. Feb. 17 in the council chambers. draconian state budget cuts have made these types of annexations appealing to both the municipalities involved and IDNR. From 2002 to 2013, the agency has seen its general funding drop from $107 million to $45 million. Personnel has been halved, leaving a maintenance backlog of nearly $1 billion. Dave Hahne, superintendent of Hennepin Canal Parkway State Park, and his staff are responsible for maintenance of the Rock Falls canal area from their home base in Sheffield. “We have nine people in our office, and seven work in maintenance,� Hahne said. “People retire and they aren’t

replaced. It’s a big area to cover.� His office covers 96 miles of the main canal area, an additional 5 miles in Milan, and three other satellite areas. The annexation by Rock Falls would allow the city to take on some of the simpler maintenance chores. Hahne sees annexation as potentially being mutually beneficial to the city and IDNR. “This would allow us to work together to achieve our goal, which is for the state and city to get a much better product out there,� Hahne said. Both IDNR and the Rock River Development Authority have a representative on the new committee, whose chairman will be Jim Schuneman. Before the land could be brought into the city, the entities would have to draw up a lease agreement that Wescott says has not yet been prepared. The document would, among other things, spell out the divi-

sion of maintenance responsibilities. With a lease agreement in hand, the city could proceed with annexation. That would include engineering work for drawings, a public hearing, and notification to neighbors within 250 feet of the property. “The city would draw up the annexation agreement in ordinance fashion, and it would be voted on by the council after a second reading,� Wescott said. In addition to the added manpower for maintenance, other advantages cited by the city include bringing the area into the jurisdiction of Rock Falls police, giving the city authority to determine use policy and make upgrades, and providing grant opportunities for feeder canal projects. The area is now under the policing jurisdiction of the Whiteside County sheriff. Rock Falls Police are often asked to respond anyway until the sheriff’s department can get there, Wescott said.

The area could be included in the city’s regular police patrols. The obvious disadvantage is cost, and the city’s inability, up to this point, to put a price tag on taking control of the area has been a stumbling block. “The costs are the biggest concern,� Wescott said. “There are no new taxes or revenue from this to put in.� Researching the cost is a work in progress, although numbers in the $100,000 to $200,000 a year range have been tossed around. The cost to the city would also be documented in the lease agreement. Wescott is optimistic that costs could be held in check, largely because of commitments from several local volunteer groups. “We plan to have a majority of the work done by volunteers,� he said. “It’s also possible that there won’t be any lease cost, but that’s something we haven’t discussed with IDNR yet. There are still a lot of questions to be answered.�

Bull of ‘Prairie’ dies at 89

Bonuses for public retirees cost millions

Illinois native appeared in ‘Perry Mason’ LOS ANGELES (AP) — Richard Bull, who played shopkeeper and putupon spouse Nels Oleson on TV’s “Little House on the Prairie,� has died. He was 89. Bull died Monday at the Motion Picture & Television Fund’s hospital, fund spokeswoman Jaime Larkin said. The actor, a resident of what was once known as the Motion Picture and TV home, died of natural causes after being hospitalized with pneumonia, Larkin said Tuesday. “Everyone loved him so much,� said Bull’s “Little House� co-star Alison Arngrim, who played his daughter, Nellie, and remained close to him. “People are posting (condolences) in six different languages on my Facebook page.� Bull “was as Nels Oleson as you’d possibly want someone to be. He was calm, rational, sensible,� Arngrim said. The Illinois-born character actor appeared in a wide range of TV shows, from “Perry Mason� in the 1950s to “Mannix� in the 1960s to Kelsey Gram-

Bull played opposite his wife of 65 years, actress Barbara Collentine, in several projects. Among the movies he appeared in were “High Plains Drifter� and “Executive Action,� both in 1973. Dean Butler, who played Almanzo James Wilder on the 1974-83 NBC series inspired by Laura Ingalls Wilder’s novels about her 19th-century prairie family’s life, recalled his friend. “Richard was a very

generous, soft-spoken actor with a wonderful appetite for work,� Butler said. “He always made it (acting) look so easy.� Melissa Gilbert, who starred in the series with Michael Landon (who died in 1991), tweeted: “This man will be missed. Goodbye Richard working with you was such a joy but nearly as joyful as being your friend.� Bull and Collentine, also 89, moved to the Motion Picture & Television Fund home from Chicago in

September 2012, Larkin said. Another “Little House� cast member became a resident there, said Butler: Katherine “Scottie� MacGregor, who played Oleson’s memorable wife, Harriet. After Bull’s death, Collentine and MacGregor had dinner together Monday night and agreed “they had both lost a wonderful husband,� Butler said. Funeral plans for Bull were not immediately announced.

A R L I N G T O N HEIGHTS (AP) – A statewide pension system for local government and school district retirees is paying out bonuses that cost taxpayers more than $41 million last year, according to a newspaper’s review of pension data. The Arlington Heights Daily Herald added up the costs after examining Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund data that it obtained through an open records request. Known as the “13th payment,� the bonuses paid each July are on top of monthly pension checks and have escaped scrutiny during the Legislature’s

efforts to overhaul Illinois’ heavily indebted pension systems. The average bonus for 2013 was around $340, but payments went as high as $7,600, the newspaper said. “Retiring from a career in the public sector shouldn’t mean you get to win a little lottery jackpot every year,� said Madeleine Doubek, chief operating officer of the voter-advocacy group Reboot Illinois. “More than a few people are going to think any type of taxpayer-funded bonus for someone no longer working that is above and beyond their monthly pension is ridiculous.�

Dixon, Sterling Report: Agency should seek help offices not on list Think tank: Department of Commerce should oversee projects funded by EB-5 IMMIGRATION

IMMIGRANTS

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services should get help from the Department of Commerce to oversee projects funded by the federal EB-5 investment-for-green-cards immigration program, a Washington think tank says in a report released Wednesday. The Brookings Institution’s study agreed with a December report by the Department of Homeland Security’s Inspector General that found that the visa program for foreign investors goes far beyond the immigration agency’s

mission, and it should better tap the business expertise of other government entities. The program has faced some criticism because it’s been used to fund several failed projects, including the idled Northern Beef Packers plant in South Dakota and a planned hotel and conference center in Chicago. Audrey Singer, who co-authored the Brookings Institution report, said transferring the functions of the EB-5 program that have to do with vetting business plans and determining whether an economic

development project created enough jobs to the Commerce Department or another agency could make the program more efficient. “The shared responsibility would improve the program,� said Singer, a senior fellow with the think tank’s metropolitan policy program. The EB-5 visa program was created in 1990 to attract foreign investment and create jobs. An investor’s primary goal is usually to obtain visas for themselves and their families, but each investment of either $500,000 or $1 million, depending on a project’s location,

must create at least 10 full-time jobs. David North, a fellow with the Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit that examines immigration policies, said EB-5 is a more difficult and more troubled program than the report indicates. North, a longtime critic of EB-5, raised ethical questions about whether the United States should essentially sell visas for a $500,000 each. “I really would rather have it scrapped, but if it’s going to continue, it should be revised drastically,� he said.

State’s oldest lobbyist not slowing Veteran turns 90, still works 7 days a week SPRINGFIELD (AP) – Since spending a bittercold winter at a German prison camp during World War II, Dick Lockhart said his feet have ached more when lying in bed on cold nights than when moving around. This might explain why the 90-year-old lobbyist can still be found wandering the halls of the Illinois Capitol on behalf of clients more than 55 years after getting into the influence game. The state Senate recognized Lockhart on the chamber floor Wednesday for the decades he has devoted to representing his clients, many of which advocate for better mental health care and services. And a party was scheduled for later Wednesday to honor Lockhart, who said he works 7 days a week and is at the Capitol just about every day that the Legislature is in session. Lockhart said he doesn’t plan to slow down, which isn’t surprising to those who know him. “He is simply somebody that you knew was formidable if he opposed you and a good ally if he was with you,� said Jim Fletcher, a lobbyist who has known Lockhart since the late 1960s. Lockhart was in high

Veteran Illinois lobbyist Dick Lockhart (right), 90, jokes Jan. 30 with friend and fellow lobbyist Bill Luking while talking about being the oldest practicing lobbyist in Illinois, and possibly the nation. Lockhart has lobbied in Springfield for 55 years and still works 7 days a week. school when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. He went to Purdue University for a semester before he joined the Army. In the middle of December 1944, Lockhart’s regiment surrendered to the Germans during the Battle of the Bulge, and he was a prisoner of war for 4 months in a German camp. He said he didn’t have winterized footwear, which led to the aching he still feels today when his feet aren’t moving. “I tell people they have a very effective weight reduction plan,� Lockhart said. But he notes that he weighs the same today as he did his senior year of high school. Lockhart said many things have changed since he first began lobbying in 1958, including increasing amounts of legislation every year and constant fundrais-

ing or campaigning for lawmakers. But he said the importance of integrity and honesty hasn’t changed. That’s one lesson his

firm’s vice president Gael Mennecke said she learned right away from Lockhart. At any one time, Lockhart’s firm, Social Engineering Associates, has about 15 clients for whom he lobbies in Springfield, many of which Mennecke described as “dogood� groups. “He burned into my mind when I was lobbying to always tell the truth. That has served me well not only in lobbying, but in all walks of life,� said Mennecke, who has worked with Lockhart since 1974. Lockhart said his greatest accomplishment was lobbying for mental health insurance parity in Illinois, which he did by garnering the support of some Republicans and making it a nonpartisan issue.

To get the special license, a person must set up an appointment at one of 36 designated motor vehicle offices. Dixon and Sterling’s offices are not on the list. The nearest offices giving immigrant licenses are Silvis (outside Moline), Princeton, Rockford and DeKalb. In an interview, Hooper said she favored the new law. “This is so important that they are working toward their licenses,� she said. “They need a license to drive a car legally. We are a group that works on issues related to Latinos.�

So far, 50,000 appointments have already been logged in with the secretary of state’s office, which runs the motor vehicles division, said the agency’s spokesman, Henry Haupt. An appointment set up now will take place in about 90 days, he said. The appointment is a first step in the process. After that, the secretary of state will proceed to verify a person’s information, Haupt said. “If we didn’t have appointments, there would be thousands waiting in line,� he said. “The appointment process has worked. We understand that there is high demand. We simply urge that people please be patient.�

Although I think it’s great that two people driving by called 911, why didn’t anyone just stop to see what was wrong or wait for an officer to respond to the scene?

CVS, the nation’s second-largest drugstore chain, is kicking the habit of selling tobacco products as it continues to shift its focus toward being more of a health care provider. The company said Wednesday that it will phase out cigarettes, cigars and chewing tobacco by Oct. 1 in its 7,600 stores nationwide, in a move that will help grow its business that works with doctors, hospitals and others to improve customers’ health.

Among other things, they’re preparing for increased health care demand. That’s in part due to an aging U.S. population that will need more care in future years. It’s also the result of the millions of people expected to gain health insurance under the health care overhaul. As CVS has been work-

ing to team up with hospital groups and doctor practices to help deliver and monitor patient care, Chief Medical Officer Dr. Troyen A. Brennan said the presence of tobacco in its stores has made for some awkward conversations. “One of the first questions they ask us is, ‘Well, if you’re going to be part of the health care system, how can you continue to sell tobacco products?’� he said. “There’s really no good

answer to that at all.� CVS Caremark Corp., which has 7,600 stores nationwide, said it will lose about $2 billion in annual revenue by phasing out tobacco, but the move will not affect its 2014 earnings forecast. CVS notches about $1.5 billion annually in tobacco sales, but it expects a bigger hit because smokers often buy other products when they visit their stores. The company brought in more than $123 billion in total revenue in 2012. The company declined to say what will take tobacco’s prominent shelf place behind cash registers at the front of its stores. CVS will test some items and may expand smoking cessation products that are sometimes sold near cigarettes. Its drugstores do not sell electronic cigarettes, devices that heat a liquid nicotine solution and create a water vapor that users inhale. CVS also plans to expand its smoking cessation efforts. That includes training pharmacists to counsel people on how to quit.

NEW RESEARCH

Study: 10 states eye Internet gambling bills New Jersey, Nevada and Deleware only states that allow it ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) – At least 10 U.S. states – including Illinois – are considering bills to legalize or expand Internet gambling this year, according to a group that tracks gambling-related legislation worldwide. But the Gambling Compliance survey also finds slim chances for a national law to regulate

Internet poker, predicting a major effort by online gambling opponents to block it in Congress. So far, three states allow Internet gambling: New Jersey, Nevada and Delaware. The report says proposals for new or expanded Internet betting could be considered in Illinois, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

“In 2013, 10 states considered legislation that would legalize online casino-style gambling, which was a historic high,� said Chris Krafcik, the group’s research director. “This year is shaping up to be at least as busy.� In California, one of the largest potential markets, Indian tribes are trying to agree on how to legalize Internet poker. Tribal leaders from two coalitions met last month and said

they made progress but still need more time to work out an accord. The report said a bill is likely to be acted upon before an Aug. 31 deadline. A bill in Mississippi that would have legalized Internet gambling died Tuesday when the state legislature failed to act on it. Gambling Compliance also says Nevada may consider expanding online gambling, which is currently limited to poker.

THE LIST

The weather is terrible, so stay inside and read I t’s been cold and snowing everywhere in recent weeks. Well, not everywhere, but even in places like Knoxville and Atlanta. This winter has seemed colder and snowier and longer than others in the past, which means most people probably aren’t looking to do things outside. And since we’re all stuck inside for the next few weeks, I thought I’d share a list – in no particular order – of some books I recommend reading while seeking a respite from the weather. 1) The Perfect Storm: A true story of men against the sea, by Sebastian Junger – 225 pages. Junger is a genius storyteller. This book was made into a movie that starred George Clooney,

mattMENCARINI

Matt Mencarini is a reporter for Sauk Valley Media. You can reach him at mmencarini@saukvalley. com or 800798-4085, ext. 529.

but like most movies based on books, the book is far better. In 1991, a fishing boat, the Andrea Gail, got caught in the Perfect Storm off the coast of Massachusetts. Junger starts the book by writing about the lives and families of the six crew members of the ship, then tries to reconstruct what might have happened on the boat during

the storm. He “tries� to reconstruct it because all six men died. It’s beautifully written and full of details. And the weather in this book will make you think it’s summer outside. 2) In The Woods, by Tana French – 429 pages. This is the only fiction book on my list. I mostly read nonfiction, but my brother recommended this to me, and I’m glad he did. French tells the story of two homicide detectives in Ireland who are working to solve the murder of a 12-year-old girl. The hidden past of one of the detectives becomes too much to handle, given the circumstances of the murder. French created some really interesting characters.

3) Meat Market: Inside the smash-mouth world of college football recruiting, by Bruce Feldman – 304 pages. This is the perfect time to pick up this book. National Signing Day, when many high school football recruits can officially sign letters of intent for their scholarships, was Wednesday. Feldman is now a college football writer with CBS Sports. He takes you behind the curtain of this crazy recruiting world with inside access at the University of Mississippi while thenhead coach Ed Orgeron was recruiting the 2007 class. The last line of the book tells it all. 4) The Right Stuff, by Tom Wolfe – 344 pages.

ART EXHIBITS At The Next Picture Show DIXON – The Regional 10 is on display until Saturday at TNPS, 113 W.

This book is about running. But not the running you or I do, or even the running that marathon runners do. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about ultramarathons â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 50 to 100 miles â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in extreme conditions and the people who run them. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about a society youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never heard of in a place youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve likely never heard of. McDougall takes you along from the initial moment of curiosty about the best way to run, all the way to him being alone in Mexicoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Copper Canyon in the midst of a race against some of the best longdistance runners in the world. Bonus points because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no actual running required when you read it.

This book is about American test pilots in the 1950s, and specifically the seven who became the Mercury Seven â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the first American astronauts. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also about Chuck Yeager, the man who broke the sound barrier for the first time. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about â&#x20AC;&#x153;the right stuffâ&#x20AC;? and what exactly that is. This book also was made into a movie, which is great, but I recommend you read the book first. And if test pilots and astronauts donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have you sold, then Wolfeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s writing is reason enough to pick this up. 5) Born To Run: A hidden tribe, superathletes, and the greatest race the world has never seen, by Christopher McDougall â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 304 pages.

DIXON | ART EXHIBITS

GenNex to sponsor art exhibit at gallery Artwork will be on display throughout the month at The Next Picture Show BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 529

DIXON – This Friday, the opening of an art show could be a preview of what’s to come from a local youth group. Project GenNex, the Dixon youth group, is sponsoring an art show called “Desire to Inspire” at The Next Picture

About the opening The opening of the GenNex-sponsored “Desire to Inspire” art show will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday at The Next Picture Show, 113 W. First St. in Dixon. Awards will be given at 7 p.m.

Show. The opening is Friday, and the art will be on display at the gallery throughout the month, said Steve Wilson, the group’s organizer and building manager at Loveland Community House & Museum. Bonnie Kime, of The Next Picture Show, expects at least 30 pieces art and will make room if

more are submitted, she said. The art will be from area junior high and high school students who go to Reagan Middle School,

Dalton Attig, of Sauk Valley Community College, and Ali Settles, of Dixon High School, will be playing music throughout the opening, and food will be provided. Dixon High School, St. Anne Catholic School or St. Mary’s, among others. An art show is the type of event GenNex could potentially host if it had

a youth center, Wilson said, but partnering with a gallery like The Next Picture will help with exposure. Hosting the artwork, Kime said, goes along with one of the gallery’s nonprofit missions – art education. From listening to a piece of classical music to looking at a painting, anything can stir the creative side of a child, she said. “It’s an outlet for them.

It’s a creative outlet, and you have to channel And you have to channel it after that [opportunity]. I think that’s the most important thing,” Kime said. “And you can’t channel if there’s no opportunity.” A representative from The Next Picture Show will judge the artwork, Wilson said, and give awards for Best In Show and the top piece from junior high and high school.

THE LIST

Movies to watch for in early 2014 T

he box officeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s revival in 2013 can make one excited or worried about what to expect at the movies in early 2014. But even after a quick study of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ahead, there doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appear to be a letdown. Here are a few films that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be making an effort to see in the next few months: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Monuments Menâ&#x20AC;? Release date: Friday George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray and John Goodman star in this World War II movie about art experts saddled with the job of finding valuable stolen artwork before the Nazis destroy it. I mean, I figured I could just say Clooney, Damon, Murray and Goodman, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d already be packing up the tents to camp out at the theaters. That cast is outstanding. If the movie is as good at the cast, it will be a future classic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The LEGO Movieâ&#x20AC;? Release date: Friday Some people say Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m an old soul. But, as you can see, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m also a

kid at heart. Not every movie needs to be Oscar material to be enjoyable. This movie looks like a unique take on something that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be taken too seriously: Legos. Construction line Legos, to be exact. The previews have been funny, and the greatest animated and computer-animated films are the ones the whole family can enjoy. Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Elizabeth Banks and Will Ferrell sounds like a cast perfect for building a well-rounded family film. Get it? Build, because Legos are used to build things? ... Ahem, moving on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Grand Budapest Hotelâ&#x20AC;? Release date: March 7 Wes Anderson, one of the industryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most unique filmmakers, follows up his successful 2012 release â&#x20AC;&#x153;Moonrise Kingdomâ&#x20AC;? with a sure-to-be quirky flick about a concierge who forms a friendship with a young employee at their workplace, a hotel. The movie is set in alternate-history

But history doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lie; Anderson usually delivers. The cast includes veteran Anderson film actors, such as Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman and Edward Norton. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m making reservations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Veronica Marsâ&#x20AC;? Release date: March 14 A movie to finally give some closure, I hope, to the severely underrated TV show that was canceled after only three seasons in 2007.

series a few years back in a no-sleep, yet brighteyed, binge of awesomeness in the span of a few days. It was glorious. Kristen Bell (Mars) is a great actress. Rob Thomas, the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creator, wrote the screenplay for the film after the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cancellation. Now, with the help of a Kickstarter campaign that raised more than $2 million for production, the spunky private investigator is back. Mars now lives in New York, 9 years after the events of Season 3, but must return to her hometown when her old boyfriend is accused of murder. Again. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m coming with her. Road trip, anyone? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Muppets Most Wantedâ&#x20AC;? Release date: March 31 The Muppets are at it again. Those crazy creatures are one of my favorite things in life. My sister and I still watch the TV special â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Muppet Family Christmasâ&#x20AC;? from 1987 almost every year. My dad still has it. On VHS. So, yeah, we go back. Kermit and the gang are joined by Ricky Gervais,

Ty Burrell and Tina Fey. The Muppets find themselves in an international crime caper while on tour in Europe. If this is anything like 1981â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Great Muppet Caper,â&#x20AC;? we are all in for a treat. Jason Segel helped bring the late Jim Hensonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gang of misfits roaring back into the spotlight with â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Muppetsâ&#x20AC;? in 2011. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping â&#x20AC;&#x153;Muppets Most Wantedâ&#x20AC;? shines even brighter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Transcendenceâ&#x20AC;? Release date: April 25 I remember seeing a somewhat-ambiguous preview for this last year and still being excited. Let me be the first to admit, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a huge Johnny Depp fan. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get me wrong, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Edward Scissorhandsâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eating Gilbert Grape?â&#x20AC;? are great. But â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pirates of the Caribbeanâ&#x20AC;? and the like are just kind of blah. Argh, I know. But a movie about an artificial intelligence researcher whose mind is uploaded into a computer after an assassination attempt by a group of anti-technology extremists? Well that

sure sounds unique, if nothing else. Morgan Freeman, too? OK, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sold. â&#x20AC;&#x153;X-Men: Days of Future Pastâ&#x20AC;? Release date: May 23 Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lost count of how many X-Men movies there have been. When that happens, franchises can start to feel stale. But, when I heard that Bryan Singer, director of â&#x20AC;&#x153;X-Menâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;X2,â&#x20AC;? has returned, I changed my tune. Jennifer Lawrence has also replaced Rebecca Romijn as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mystique.â&#x20AC;? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not just name dropping. Lawrence is one of the hottest names in Hollywood right now, and this is an interesting change of pace for the young, talented actress. The ensemble, including regulars like Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen, Ellen Page and Halle Berry, are fighting for the survival of the species in two time periods. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m here fighting the urge to not get too excited. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m losing. You look great on the surface, 2014. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t disappoint.

Electronics more than fun and games? Dear Abby, I am writing about the letter from â&#x20AC;&#x153;Holding My Tongueâ&#x20AC;? (Nov. 8), the woman who was upset because many children were playing with electronic devices during her grandchildrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s school concerts and recitals. While I agree that most children should pay attention to the event at hand, as the mother of two children on the autism spectrum, I have a different perspective. There are apps and games designed to keep these children occupied and help them deal with the stress and anxiety of being in a large group of people. I should not have to leave my sons at home because they are on the

Dear Laura, Your point is wellstated, and was one made by a number of parents of children with special needs. Readers had interesting comments on this topic, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sharing a few:

I not only notice this in children, but adults as well. I have seen people check their emails while they are in church, or couples sitting together at a restaurant, both fixated on their electronic devices and not speaking a word to each other.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sad to imagine what the next generation will be like if we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start putting the devices down and interacting with each other again like human beings. I raised all three of my kids this way, so I know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not impossible. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Maintaining Human Contact

WRESTLING PREVIEW | 2A GENESEO REGIONAL

Missiles send clear message Milledgeville beats No. 9 Eastland BY BRIAN WEIDMAN bweidman@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 551

Philip Marruffo/pmarruffo@saukvalley.com

Sterling sophomore Jaden Urrutia won a regional championship last year, but then nerves derailed him at the sectional. He’s learned from that experience and hopes to make a deeper run at 113 pounds this winter.

Added seasoning

MILLEDGEVILLE – Opportunity knocked at winning time for Eastland during Wednesday’s NUIC crossover game at Milledgeville. When the Cougars didn’t answer the call, the Missiles were presented with a chance. Milledgeville took advantage, in the form of two Kameron game-winning DawTyne f r e e t h r o w s Milledgeville f r o m s e n i o r senior guard Kameron DawTyne with 3.9 seconds remaining in overtime to steal a 54-52 victory. “That’s the stuff I love,” DawTyne said. “I want to be in the center with the game on the line, with my teammates believing in me and us believing in each other. You could never ask for anything better.” MESSAGE CONTINUED ON B4

Postseason experience, hard work have Sterling soph confident Urrutia file School: Sterling Year: Sophomore Weight class: 113 Record: 18-4, with 5 pins and 4 tech. falls Ranking: 11th (by Illinois Matmen) FYI: Won 32 bouts as a freshman at 106 pounds. … Won 2A regional title with pin in overtime.

BY TY REYNOLDS treynolds@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 554

When it comes to students of wrestling, Sterling’s Jaden Urrutia might be valedictorian. The 113-pound sophomore takes his wrestling seriously, whether it’s tangling with a bigger teammate in practice or studying film of matches. It’s one of the reasons why last year’s Class 2A Rock Island Regional champ has designs on a higher postseason finish this year. “Last year, as a freshman, I think I let the pressure and doubt get into my head at sectionals, and didn’t wrestle the way I wanted to,” said Urrutia, who won the regional crown with an

overtime pin. “This year, I’m 100 percent sure I can keep up with everyone I’ll face. Nothing is going to get into the back of my mind, no doubts at all, and I’m going to be aggressive and wrestle my way … and hopefully, that will get me down to state.” The beauty of Urrutia’s style is that he really doesn’t have just one. He’s as comfortable on the bottom as he is riding an opponent out, and he also feels he has an advantage on his feet. But the thing that separates Urrutia from many of his opponents is the ability to adjust throughout the course of a single bout, to find any advantage he can and exploit it.

Star of the game: Kameron DawTyne, Milledgeville, 9 points, 8 rebounds, gamewinning free throws Key performer: Blake Janssen, Eastland, 17 points, 17 rebounds Up next: AFC at Milledgeville, Eastland at Lena-Winslow, both 7:30 today

Heating up early and late Quaco started season burning foot, finished torching lanes BY BRIAN WEIDMAN bweidman@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 551

Emily Quaco’s bowling season got off to a hot start – just not quite the kind she hoped for. In early December, the Dixon High School junior was summoned to the bedroom of her older sister, Rachel, to braid her hair. A few steps into the room, however, came a horrible surprise.

She went to the hospital, and was given some cream to apply to the foot to ease the pain and swelling. The blistering continued for a month. Through it all, she kept bowling.

The cream, some extra padding on the injury, and removing the shoelaces from her left bowling shoe to ease pressure were the only concessions she made while bowling. “It affected me somewhat, because I couldn’t really balance,” Quaco said. “I just had to deal with it.” Quaco has done that admirably well throughout the season. She carries a 186 average, though she suspects that had she been totally healthy, it would have been about 10 pins higher. HEATING CONTINUED ON B3

The Blackhawks have legitimate chances of repeating as Stanley Cup champions. That is the main reason that Tribune columnist Steve Rosenbloom doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the NHL should allow players to risk their health by playing in the Olympics.

NHL at Games still stupid T

he NHL has done this before, but somehow this seems worse. The NHL has shut down business at one of the best times for exposure before, but somehow going to the Olympics in Sochi this year seems worse. The NHL has sent players to the Games since 1998 in Nagano, Japan, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve railed against this nonsense since then. These games come after the Super Bowl and before March Madness, which should be prime time for the NHL. But no. The NHL is closing down. Again. Closing down for the longest time since it began sending the pros to the Olympics. Closing down so its best players can deal with a different brand of hockey at ridiculous hours for its main audience. The NHL always seems like the fifth sport in a four-sport world. It should crave having a spotlight window. But no. The NHL is sending that spotlight halfway around the world. Sounds like they should start the concussion testing in the league offices.

have the talent to repeat. However, repeating in sportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toughest postseason becomes tougher still while enduring a compressed regularseason schedule that exacts a greater physical toll demanded by the foolishness of going to the Games. Injuries are going to happen, sure. But theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more likely in a jammed schedule, which also means more games missed because of injuries, which might have an effect on playoff seeding. And then to risk more injury by sending the best players halfway around the world to play for somebody else is stupid, even for the NHL. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like Olympic hockey on the bigger ice, anyway, and I certainly donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like things that hurt Chicagoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chances of winning a title. Yeah, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s provincial. Tough noogies. I also donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like my favorite sport shutting down, especially at a time when it could grab more attention. Olympic hockey is not the best hockey in the world. NHL hockey is. The NHL ought to figure that out.

On second thought, White withdraws U.S. star wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t particpate in slopestyle after injuring wrist BY EDDIE PELLS !0.ATIONAL7RITER

KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Shaun White jammed his wrist on one jump and watched the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best snowboarders join him in tumbling down the supersized, super-scary Olympic slopestyle course. Quickly, his choice became clear: Time to step away from the danger, and give himself a better chance in the event he knows he can win. The worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most famous snowboarder pulled out of the new Olympic event Wednesday, saying that after much deliberation, he has decided to bypass a chance at winning two gold medals at these games and instead concentrate on the halfpipe, where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a chance to win his third straight title next week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With the practice runs I have taken, even after course modifications and watching fellow athletes get hurt, the potential risk of injury is

a bit too much for me to gamble my other Olympics goals on,â&#x20AC;? White said in a statement. Whiteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision was a stunner that dealt yet another blow to the stillto-start Sochi Games. They have been wracked by security threats and political dust-ups, along with the loss of at least one other headliner, injured American skier Lindsey Vonn. White isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leaving, but his departure from an event that was essentially introduced at the Olympics this year to take advantage of his star power certainly canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make the folks at the IOC or NBC too happy. IOC spokesman Mark Adams downplayed the idea that the course is too dangerous. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an issue,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of the athletes have said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very happy, they like the venue.â&#x20AC;?

Orange Bowl impact felt 14 months later BY STEVE NITZ Shaw Media

DeKALB â&#x20AC;&#x201C; When Northern Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; earned its Orange Bowl berth in December of 2012, it was impossible not to think about the recruiting impact. Most members of the Class of 2013 had already committed. But looking ahead to 2014, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where NIU had a chance to make a name for itself. When NIU head coach Rod Carey announced his first recruiting class in January of 2013, he admitted it as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I told you guys a year ago, I think that the Orange Bowl would really have an effect a year from now. I think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seeing that,â&#x20AC;? Carey said at Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Signing Day press conference at the Yordon Center. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not that that was the only reason, by no means, that those guys are here. But I think that door opens for you by having that.â&#x20AC;? About 14 months after fans celebrated MidAmerican Conference title game win over Kent State in Detroit, learned the team was going to Miami and bashed ESPNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kirk Herbstreit, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Orange Bowl helped take recruiting to a new level. On paper â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I emphasize, on paper â&#x20AC;&#x201C; this looks like the best class of football recruits in recent memory. Cornerback Deion Hallmon had loads of BCS offers. He had the chance to play in front of the Golden Dome at Notre Dame, go to a tradition-rich program like Nebraska or join defending national-champion Florida State. Instead, the three-star prospect is heading to DeKalb. National recruiting analyst Tom Lemming told

Instead, the three-star prospect could be the Huskiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; quarterback of the future. Wide receiver David Senior out of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., had offers from the likes of Nebraska, Washington and Wisconsin. However, he committed to NIU in July and stuck with the Huskies. In terms of non-BCS programs, star-ratings and recruiting rankings can definitely be overrated, and Carey said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put any stock in them. Remember, NIU was the only school that recruited Jordan Lynch to play quarterback. Jimmie Ward, who should be selected in this springâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NFL Draft, had

only three FBS offers, according to Rivals. Former cornerback Rashaan Melvin went from a walk-on to the NFL. At the same time, signing a highly-rated class like this shows the lengths the program has come. Rivals has the Huskies second in the MAC behind Western Michigan, 247sports has NIU fourth behind the Broncos, Toledo and Buffalo. Carey said that although Illinois will always be NIUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main recruiting ground, being on the national stage has helped the school recruit nationally as well. On the surface, this is a very good class by MAC standards, though weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see what it looks like 4 years from now. At the moment, Huskie fans shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t complain.

Missiles win game at free-throw line MESSAGE

CONTINUED FROM B1

Eastland (16-3) overcame an early 19-10 deficit and looked to have the game in hand when reserve forward Valdet Seferi dropped in a pair of free throws with 1:53 remaining to seize a 46-41 lead. Milledgeville (15-3), however, closed the game with a 6-1 run, capped by a pair of free throws from DawTyne with 30.8 seconds to knot the score at 47-47. The Cougars then held the ball for the final shot. It was taken by senior guard Dalton Shaner with 4 seconds left in regulation time. The ball hit the side of the rim and hung there tantalizingly for an instant before it fell off. Blake Janssen, Eastlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 6-foot-5 sophomore center, was there for the tip, but that also missed to force overtime. In the extra period, the lead changed hands four times, then it was tied with 1:11 to go after Milledgevileâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Zach Herin hit the second of two free throws to make it 52-52. Eastland initially seemed content to wait for the final shot, but instead came out firing. Senior guard Devin Hartman missed a long jumper with 47 seconds to go, but Janssen grabbed the rebound. With 30 seconds remaining, Seferi missed a jumper, but Skylar Paulson came up with the board, giving the Cougars one last opportunity.

Finally, with 7 seconds to go, Paulson put up a long jumper. It missed, DawTyne grabbed the rebound, and he was fouled by Paulson with 3.9 seconds to go. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When it was overtime and we really needed a stop,â&#x20AC;? Milledgeville coach Brian Rahn said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and we gave them a second, and then a third shot, I thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Well, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think this is going to happen for us.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a testament to our kids. They just kept fighting.â&#x20AC;? DawTyne, who had been 3-for-4 at the line up to that point, swished two in a row to put the Missiles ahead 54-52. On Eastlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final play, Hartman inbounded the ball to Seferi. He took a dribble, then tried to pass to a teammate near midcourt. The pass was deflected by Milledgevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jordan Harris. It went high in the air, and time expired before it hit the ground. Harris led a balanced attack with 13 points, DawTyne had nine, and Blake Kappes, Herin and Caleb Skoog added eight each. Luke Ebersole added six points on a pair of 3-pointers, the second of which drew the Missiles to within 46-45 with 1:10 left in regulation. For Eastland, Janssen was a force in the middle with 17 points and 17 rebounds, and Paulson added 11 points and nine boards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a big, physical team with multiple scorers,â&#x20AC;? DawTyne said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coach had it on the board downstairs that we had to fight back. We just kept coming back.

Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d take blows, but we kept coming back.â&#x20AC;? Shaner, the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top offensive threat, endured a 2-for-17 shooting night and finished with just seven points. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start either half, after being 15 minutes late for the team bus. He fouled out with 3:26 left in overtime. An off-night by Shaner, shaky execution at crunch time, and a 14-for-27 performance at the free-throw line resulted in just the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third defeat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a lot of selfish young men,â&#x20AC;? Eastland coach Tony Dunlap said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Until they play like a team, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be done quick.â&#x20AC;? The Cougars and Missiles could see each other again, as they are both entered in the Forreston Regional. Seeds and pairings will be determined next Wednesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To get a quality headto-head win this time of the year, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very important for us,â&#x20AC;? Rahn said. Before the game, a moment of silence was held for Milledgeville resident Tim Litwiller, who was killed in a snowmobiling accident last weekend in Wisconsin. His son, Troy Litwiller, plays for the Missilesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fresh-soph team. The Litwiller family was on DawTyneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind when he attempted what turned out to be the game-winning shots. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would mean so much for me to make these free throws for [Troy], and in his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name,â&#x20AC;? DawTyne said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was thinking of both of them, and then I made the shots.â&#x20AC;?

Intriguing chances for both sides

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

When you look at all 52 cards of some bridge deals, it is not clear how either the bidding or the play will go. This layout arose during a social game with strong players. What was the outcome in six clubs after West led the heart king? The auction was involved. North’s negative double showed his four-card spade suit. Then, when South indicated extra values by jumping to three no-trump, North bid his long diamond suit. South control-bid (cuebid) four hearts to suggest a slam. West’s double was futile. And, finally, South chose six clubs. Both six clubs and six

diamonds can be made, but each requires double-dummy play. (Declarer must know where all of the cards lie.) The expert in six clubs adopted a sensible line. After

winning with his heart ace, South ran his diamond queen to East’s king. East, thinking his partner would have led a singleton if he had one, returned a heart. But declarer ruffed in the dummy, cashed the club king, crossed to the spade king, and drew trumps, squeezing East in spades and diamonds (not that it mattered, because South could have established dummy’s diamond suit). East should have returned a diamond. If South had had a singleton queen, he was unlikely to have rebid three no-trump. Also, even if he had, the diamond lead probably would not have cost. West would have needed a trump trick to defeat the contract, which was not likely to evaporate. © 2014 UFS

Find your dream home! Read Sauk Valley Classifieds real estate section and Real Estate Weekly on Thursdays. Astrograph Size up your situation. Thursday, February 6, 2014 Size up your situation and figure out what you want. Do not slow down until you reach your goal. Use your desire and determination to get started, and the rest will fall into place. Stay focused and strive for the success you’ve been searching for. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Investments will pay off. Fixing up something you want to sell will add to its value and give you a seller’s advantage. Don’t worry about pleasing everyone. Do what’s best for you. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -Participate in community events to develop new friendships. A journey that takes you somewhere mentally, spiritually or physically will be enlightening. Strive for perfection. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -Discuss your plans with someone you respect or trust and you will find a way to make your dreams come true. Concentrate on what’s important; taking on too much will deter progress. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Review your personal situation and consider how you can make an important relationship better. Special plans will help bring you closer to the one you love.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Look for ways to get ahead and come up with a plan. Lady Luck is in your corner so take advantage of a moneymaking endeavor. A contribution will raise your profile. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -Participate in something in order to make interesting connections. Trips will prove eye-opening and adventurous. Friends will help bring greater clarity to a situation that you’ve been questioning. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Don’t make unrealistic gestures. Think twice before you retaliate. Make sure you have the correct facts. Focus on what’s important and what will help you get ahead. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -Mixing and mingling will bring you satisfaction and greater confidence. Your social attributes will put you in a good position, resulting in popularity. Take advantage of an opportunity.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -Emotions will escalate if you have ignored a situation that can affect your personal life. Don’t overreact when stability is required. Put your energy into physical rather than mental encounters. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Throw a creative slant into the mix when it comes to your work, and you will outshine any competition you encounter. Make a purchase that will grow in value. Invest in yourself.
