Retro Reagan revealed

New center for future boyhood home visitors? For 3 years, young Reagan called house on Hennepin home BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 529

DIXON – Thirty years ago, President Ronald Reagan ate lunch in the Dixon home he lived in for 3 years. Today, the plates, table and chairs from that meal are still in the house. The Ronald Reagan Boyhood Home, 816 S. Hennepin Ave., celebrated its 30th anniversary Thursday with night tours of the home and visitor center. HOME CONTINUED ON A2

Sculptors unveil vision for statue of young ‘Dutch’ BY MATT MENCARINI mmencarini@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 529

DIXON – Near the beach Ronald Reagan once patrolled as a lifeguard, there could eventually be a statue dedicated to the country’s 40th president. An artist’s rendering of Dixon’s

next Reagan statue was unveiled during a press conference at City Hall on Thursday. It will be placed in Lowell Park and depict a young Reagan running toward the Rock River to rescue a swimmer. The statue will be 7 feet tall and have a base about 3 feet wide,

according to sculptor Gary Tillery, of Rotblatt Amrany Fine Arts Studio in Highland Park, a Chicago suburb. It’s same gallery that did the Michael Jordan statue outside the United Center in Chicago. REVEALED CONTINUED ON A5

If price is right, fundraising will be expedited CONTINUED FROM A1

The home’s board of directors will consider having a new visitors center built on a piece of land it owns at the northwest corner of Ninth Street and Galena Avenue, Board President Ann Lewis said. If the cost is reasonable, she said, additional steps will be taken for fundraising. The visitor center could have interactive elements, she said, depicting what life was like in Illinois during the 1920s. Lewis expressed interest in approaching the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California or Eureka College to see if they would be willing to donate any surplus artifacts or documents. To recognize the anniversary, Lewis said the Ronald Reagan Boyhood Home received proclamations from Rep. Tom Demmer and Sen. Tim Bivins, both R-Dixon. In July 1979, the home, which was then a two-fam-

ily duplex, was up for sale and being sold by Burke Realty and current Dixon Mayor Jim Burke, the mayor said, and he sold it for $37,500 with a $500 down payment. It was that sale that allowed the home to be made into what it is today. After the home was purchased, Burke got a telegram from someone in Las Vegas offering to buy the house for $50,000, he said, but the paperwork for the original sale had already started. In the 30 years since it opened, nearly 500,000 people have made their way from across the country and world to tour, Lewis said, adding that visitors from former Soviet Union countries often get emotional and feel a strong connection to Reagan. Reagan lived in several places throughout the state, Lewis said, but from the ages of 9 to 22 he had a Dixon address. For 3 of those years, he lived in the home on Hennepin Avenue.

Group to help April House

‘The List’

First, last to report school closings Once again today, it is cold outside, with yet another wind chilld advisory in effect. Districts in the Sauk Valley have been busy this winter monitoring weather conditions and deciding whether to call off school. In the past few years, Sauk Valley Media has gotten more involved in that process, sharing with readers via text alerts (click here to sign up) and on Facebook and this website the closings as they are announced. So we get a feel for which school districts are quick to close, and which take a bit more time. Here, then, are my lists of districts that are fast on the draw and those that take a little more time to contemplate the decision. DISCLAIMER: These lists are based on only my observations. I think all of our local districts make the calls on school closures in plenty of time. Some would argue that it is bet-

ter to give that decision some time. Feel free to discuss!

MORRISON – Whiteside County’s child advocacy center, April House, is readying to make a move next door. But first, officials say, the center needs to acquire some additional funding. April House is a place where victims of child sexual abuse, physical abuse and serious neglect go to be interviewed about the things they have endured. Up until recently, the center had been facing major financial problems because of lack of grants and a downturn in donations. This summer, the county-owned center faced closure. Since then, however, the center’s financial luck has turned, thanks in large part to a $12,500 United Way grant and a private donor who sought to match it. Now the county is hard

The next step to insuring the center’s future lies in establishing a new location, one that would meet the requirements outlined by the National Children’s Alliance and make it eligible for accreditation. Accreditation with that organization would open April House up to being eligible for other grants, specifically a large one from the attorney general’s office that the center had relied on for years. Currently housed in a yellow, county-owned house at 503 N. Madison St. in Morrison, the center is in serious need of major improvements. A walk-through made it clear that to bring the 100-year-old building up to standards, necessary fixes would include work on the electric wiring, fix-

ing a mold problem in the basement, and converting the bathroom into an ADA-accessible one. It was determined during the fall that moving the center next door to the more modern gray house, also owned by the county, would be much less expensive. In November, the county board approved that request. But the gray house isn’t without its faults, Whiteside County State’s Attorney Trish Joyce estimates that it, too, would have to go through about $20,000 worth of repairs. And that’s where the Twin Cities Sunrise Rotary Club comes in. Back in October, Johanna Hager, the center’s executive director and forensic interviewer, gave a presentation at the club’s meeting. The club’s president, Dean Ahlers, said that club members were immediately interested in helping out with what they saw as a very worthy cause. “It just sparked a lot of emotion in the club that day, and even before she left, we had already start-

ed a petition to see if we could raise some money,� Ahlers said. “And it snowballed from there.� The club members took up a colleciton and offered their expertise in any way they could help out, Ahlers said. So when a representative from the accreditation team came out to do a walk-through of the newly proposed site at the gray house, a few members from the club went along. Two members in particular, one an engineer, and another a contractor, worked closely with Joyce and Whiteside County Sheriff Kelly Wilhelmi to create a to-do list for the gray house. “I think the club really came together on this,� Ahlers said. “And then we’ve got a large list of almost everybody on the club signed up to help out with the sweat equity when it comes down to it.� Joyce said that because the rotary club offered to donate the labor, the only remaining cost would be to cover the materials needed – one she estimates to be about $8,000.

OBITUARIES Marjorie D. Moine DIXON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Marjorie Darlene Moine, 82, of Dixon, joined her loving Savior in eternal rest Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014, at Serenity Hospice & Home in Oregon. Marjorie was born Nov. 21, 1931, in rural Goshen County, Wyo., the youngest of three children born to Virgle and Lena (Evans) Lawson. She attended several grade and high schools in Nebraska and Wyoming, and Parks Business College in Denver. She married Alvin Elwood Moine on Dec. 25, 1951, in Missouri. She was a member of First Presbyterian Church in Dixon. Besides the tireless and time-consuming job of raising her family, she worked outside the home at several businesses, lastly retiring from the office of Dr. Richard Piller, a chiropractor in Dixon. Marjorie was a den mother for her three Cub Scout sons.

2012 NATO SUMMIT

Terrorism trial winds down Prosecutor: Actions went beyond protest CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Three men who came to Chicago to protest the 2012 NATO summit veered from civil disobedience into terrorism when they hatched a plan to throw Molotov cocktails at President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign headquarters, police stations and other sites, a prosecutor said Thursday, wrapping up the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case against them. Brian Church, Jared Chase and Brent Vincent Betterly sought to spread fear through violent acts and deserve to be convicted under Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; rarely-used terrorism statute, prosecutor Tom

Biety said during closing arguments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Were they bumbling fools or were they cold, calculating terrorists? ... That is the question you have to answer,â&#x20AC;? he told jurors. He added that the evidence showed, â&#x20AC;&#x153;These men are terrorists.â&#x20AC;? The menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyers, though, say the authorities overreached by charging their clients under the terrorism statute â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one of many rarelyinvoked terrorism statutes that states passed after 9/11. They portrayed men as drunken goofs who were duped into the Molotov cocktail plot by an undercover officer who infiltrated their group. Attorney Michael Deutsch said prosecutors brought the ominous-sounding terrorism charges to make a

splash in the media, and that they â&#x20AC;&#x153;trivializedâ&#x20AC;? actual terrorism and â&#x20AC;&#x153;disrespectedâ&#x20AC;? terrorism victims by doing so. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They wanted to get publicity ... and say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Look, we found terrorists and prevented mayhem in Chicago,â&#x20AC;? Deutch told jurors. If convicted of the terrorism charges, each defendant could face decades in prison. Church, 22, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; Chase, 29, of Keene, N.H.; and Betterly, 25, of Oakland Park, Fla., also face lesser charges, includingmtarm arson. Terrorism cases are almost always filed in federal court, and Illinois prosecutors havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t said why they chose to charge the men under the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statute, which has only been invoked once before.

Whether the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s alleged actions or planned actions amounted to terrorism is at the heart of the case. Deutch conceded that his client, Church, brought a bow and arrow and throwing star with him to Chicago, but he explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;He has a fetish ... . He thinks heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a ninja warrior.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;But are these weapons of terror? Weapons of mass destruction?â&#x20AC;? he asked jurors. He said that as the summit approached, his client was â&#x20AC;&#x153;an alcoholic and stonedâ&#x20AC;? much of the time and only appeared to entertain talk of attacks because he was confused and eager to fit in at what was his first big demonstration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had delusions of protester grandeur,â&#x20AC;? Deutsch said.

WASHINGTON

Voluntary GMO labeling near? Food industry pushing plan WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; People who want to know more about genetically modified ingredients in their food would be able to get it on some packages, but not others, under a plan the industry is pushing. Large food companies worried they might be forced to add â&#x20AC;&#x153;genetically modifiedâ&#x20AC;? to packaging are proposing voluntary labeling of those engineered foods, so the companies could decide whether to use them or not. The effort is an attempt to head off state-bystate efforts to require mandatory labeling. Recent ballot initiatives in California and Washington state failed, but several state legislatures are considering labeling requirements, and opponents of engineered ingredients are aggressively pushing for new laws in several states. The move comes as consumers demand to know more about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in their food. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very little science that says genetically engineered foods are unsafe. But opponents say thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too

AP

Cheerios are shown in a store in Akron, N.Y. Large food companies are trying to head off state-bystate efforts to enact mandatory labeling of genetically modified ingredients by proposing new voluntary labels nationwide. much unknown about seeds that are altered in labs to have certain traits, and that consumers have a right to know if they are eating them. The seeds are engineered for a variety of reasons, many of them to resist herbicides or insects. Pamela Bailey, president and CEO of the Grocery Manufacturers Association, the food industryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main trade group, said the decision on labels should rest with the Food and Drug Administration, which is set up to assess the safety of foods. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It does not serve national food safety policy to leave these issues

to political campaigns,â&#x20AC;? she said. The grocery manufacturers announced a partnership with 28 farm and food industry groups Thursday to push for the legislation. The groups include the National Corn Growers Association, the National Restaurant Association and the National Beverage Association, all industries that have seen pushback from consumers over modified ingredients. The groups say mandatory labels would mislead consumers into thinking that engineered ingredients are unsafe. The state laws could also create a com-

plicated patchwork of labeling laws that would â&#x20AC;&#x153;increase, rather than reduce, consumer confusion,â&#x20AC;? said Kraig Naasz of the American Frozen Food Institute, another member of the coalition. The industries are lobbying members of Congress to introduce and pass a bill that would require FDA to create a voluntary label that would take precedence over any state laws. They are also pushing for FDA to do a safety review of new genetically engineered ingredients before they are sold in food. So far, FDA has not found safety issues with modified ingredients. Theresa Eisenman, a spokeswoman for FDA, said food manufacturers are already allowed to label their foods as free of genetically modified ingredients. She said the agency â&#x20AC;&#x153;recognizes and appreciatesâ&#x20AC;? consumer interest in the issue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;FDA has received citizen petitions regarding genetically engineered foods, including the labeling of such foods,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The agency is currently considering those petitions and at this time has not made a decision, in whole or in part, regarding the petitions.â&#x20AC;?

ROCK FALLS

Tourism on to next phase Free library program first project on list

In the works

BY PAM EGGEMEIER peggemeier@saukvalley.com    EXT

Here are the first projects planned in the second phase of the Rock Falls Tourism initiative: Free library kiosk program

ROCK FALLS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Tim Wilson, who has headed up Rock Falls Tourism for less than a year, is finishing what others started while also striving to leave his own mark. After closing the books on the years-long first phase of a three-part tourism initiative, Wilson is kicking off Phase 2 with a list of projects he recently presented to the City Council. The crown jewel of Phase 1 was establishing a 5-year financial reserve to protect the 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization against unforeseen events. Formerly known as the Rock Falls Convention and Visitors Bureau, the tourism office was born of a 1991 ordinance that set up a tax on city hotel guests. That tax money funds the organization. Given there are only five hotels in the city, events such as natural disasters or fires could have a significant impact on

finances of the tourism office. The other major goal of the first phase was marketing. That goal was achieved largely through what is known as drip marketing, in which a similar message is sent repeatedly over a longer time, oftentimes via email or social media. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did some newspaper, radio and magazine advertising,â&#x20AC;? Wilson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was mainly little things to get the name out within 50 miles of the city limits.â&#x20AC;? As his agency moves on to the second phase, Wilson says his philosophy will be a little different. He plans to back off the marketing and move more in the direction of community relations. The next phase is all about infrastructure and quality-of-life changes, Wilson says. He looks to Dixon as a measuring stick of sorts, realizing that Rock Falls has some

Information kiosk at !RDUINI"OAT,AUNCH New floating dock system for canoes and kayaks along canal Downtown streetscape upgrades catching up to do. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dixon has its infrastructure in place, and now they are bringing in some bigger attractions,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re an old industrial town, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a little behind them in Phase 2.â&#x20AC;? The door will be opened to events such as the 2012 Mumford & Sons concert in Dixon after issues such as infrastructure, streetscape and logistics upgrades are made, Wilson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to clean up before the party,â&#x20AC;? Wilson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then we can move on to special events and marketing what we have.â&#x20AC;? Kicking off the second-phase projects will be installation of a free library program. Kiosks will be set up at several high-traffic sites yet to be determined. The public library will help to administer the program, which operates on a â&#x20AC;&#x153;take one, return oneâ&#x20AC;? honor system.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will probably look like a mailbox, and people can just take a book out and put one back,â&#x20AC;? head librarian Amy Lego said. The library will supply books for the program. People continually donate books to the library. The newer ones are kept, while others are sold on designated shelves at the library. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be really interesting,â&#x20AC;? Lego said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen the free libraries in magazines, and it looks cool.â&#x20AC;? Other projects in this phase include the addition of an information kiosk at the Arduini Boat Launch, with help from the Coloma Township Park District. An ADA-compliant floating dock system will be built along the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s side of the Hennepin Canal. A streetscape project is planned in the area along First Avenue and Second Street. Benches, bike racks and trash containers will be replaced, and new banners, artwork and landscaping will be introduced. City government and the Rock Falls Chamber of Commerce will be involved in the streetscaping efforts.

Did Rock Falls follow the law?

D

oes Rock Falls follow a state law that bars it from turning off peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s electricity during really cold weather? The city insists it does. Some say thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not so. Recently, resident Kerry McGrady, 48, told me the city threatened to cut off his power because he was 2 months behind in his payments. The utility office, he said, planned to turn off his electricity on a day in which the temperature would drop below 20 degrees. The law forbids shutoffs when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that cold. The city said it couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t discuss McGradyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s situation specifically. But it assured the public that it follows the law. We published a story last weekend about McGrady. As expected, we got a lot of online feedback. One woman wrote on Facebook, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay your bill, then thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your fault and expect to be disconnected.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pay your bills; donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect handouts,â&#x20AC;? a man chimed in. Others, however, said they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surprised by McGradyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s situation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The city of Rock Falls has played these games for the last 40 to 50 years. Even when [my mother] worked there, they would do this crap,â&#x20AC;? one man wrote. On our website, one reader took a shot at the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent improve-

ments to its utility business office. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You just knew they were going to put the screws to the people when they redid the utility offices. â&#x20AC;Ś I thought the old office was fine and functional. Could have thought of other places to spend money on this town.â&#x20AC;? We have no evidence that the city has engaged in the practice of cutting residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; electricity on days when the temperature drops below 20. So we filed a public records request to ask for information for all shutoffs since Dec. 1. Any person can make such a request. If the city shut off power to residents in that time, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll check the low temperatures on the days those cutoffs occurred. Then we can figure out whether Rock Falls followed the state law. David Giuliani is a news editor for Sauk Valley Media. You can reach him at dgiuliani@ saukvalley.com or 800798-4085, ext. 525.

Sculptors Omri Amrany (left) and Gary Tillery talk about their past works Thursday during the unveiling of the Ronald Reagan Lifeguard Statue at Dixon City Hall.

REVEALED

CONTINUED FROM A1

Omri Amrany and Tillery will do the sculpting, Tillery said, adding that the process could take a little more than 2 months and will start after the funding has been raised. Fundraising for the project, which was estimated at $200,000, according to Mayor Jim Burke, could start March 1 and will hopefully be finished by June 1. The city will approach private donors, as well as have four musical tributes. Funds for the initial work were donated by KSB Hospital, Midland States Bank, Dixon Tourism, John Weitzel, Lee County Republicans and the Dixon Area Chamber of Commerce, Burke said during the news conference. The city decided to go with a nationally known art gallery, Burke said, to help with the fundraising. A website will be set up once the fundraising begins. Amrany and Tillery have worked together on other sculptures, including the Pat Tillman statue for the Arizona Cardinals in Tempe, Ariz. The Reagan statue will begin as metal poles welded together, Tillery said, before wood and wire are added, and the clay is put on. Then, the sculpting begins, he said. Similar to other sculptures, the face will be

among the most difficult elements, Tillery said, especially because the sculptors wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a picture of a young Reagan running to use. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a situation like this, you want kind of a grimmace,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You want something with some intensity. Otherwise itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a face stuck onto a sculpture.â&#x20AC;? Because the statue will show Reagan wearing a 1920s-era bathing suit, like he would as a lifeguard, a significant amount of time will be spent on the leg and arm muscles. The sculptors will likely have a live model pose in a running stance, Tillery said, and then take photographs from all angles to use as references. The statue will show Reagan doing something most people donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t associate with the former actor, governor and president. And it will show him at an age most donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t associate with him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a challenge,â&#x20AC;? Tillery said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re using an image of him from a time when he was probably in his early 20s. The face is going to be a little different than most people expect.â&#x20AC;? The image the sculptors will use as reference is of Reagan standing still. In his 7 years as a lifeguard, Reagan reportedly rescued 77 swimmers, and among them was Bert Whitcombe. On Thursday, his son, Tom Whitcombe, talked about

what he remembers his father telling him about the rescue. What Whitcombe remembers hearing from his father varies slightly, he said, from what was reported in an article in the Dixon Telegraph about the rescue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was happy to find that article,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are so many people who claim to be among the 77. The number had grown during the time he was alive. There were about 100 of them when he was governor and about 500 during his first term [as president]. ... But at least we have some documentation so that we know that it really happened.â&#x20AC;?

Procrastinators may have found Man of the Year What we think By delaying his budget address until after the March 18 primary, Gov. Pat Quinn has pulled off a shrewd piece of procrastination. Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; procrastinators might have just found a new hero.

G

ov. Pat Quinn might have just put himself into contention for a major award. Members of the Illinois Procrastinators Society might take one look at Quinnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s successful bid to postpone his budget address for 5 weeks, nod in agreement, and nominate him as their Man of the Year. Quinn has been governor for 5 years. One would think that, by now, he would have the state budget-writing process down â&#x20AC;&#x153;pat.â&#x20AC;? However, when Quinn approaches the podium on the last Wednesday of March, it will be the latest that he has delivered his annual budget speech. Why? Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s check the record. In 2009, he delivered his budget speech on March 18. Lawmakers, who had recently booted Rod Blagojevich out of office, were only too happy to give Quinn extra time. In 2010, he delivered it on March 10. In 2011, he delivered it on Feb. 16. In 2012, he delivered it on Feb. 22. In 2013, he delivered it on March 6. This year, the budget address was supposed to be delivered Feb. 19, as prescribed by law. But because of a law that Quinn signed this week, the address will be delayed until March 26. Every taxpayer in the state awaits this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s address with keen interest. They well remember the lame-duck temporary income tax increase agreed to by the Legislature and Quinn back in January 2011, which raised individual and business income tax rates significantly. Those tax hikes expire mostly in 11 months. While Quinn has declined to state his position on whether they should be renewed, his budget address does not have the luxury of equivocation. To accurately plan the 2014-15 state budget, Quinn must state what

he thinks should be done about revenue. His administration already predicted that the expiration of the temporary income tax increase would mean a revenue decline of about $2 billion for the second half of the 2014-15 fiscal year. Hovering over all this is the specter of the primary election March 18, in which Quinn faces token opposition, and the general election Nov. 4. From Quinnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perspective, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better to delay bad news for voters until after an election. Because he previously persuaded the Legislature to postpone budget addresses, why not get them to agree to delay this one until after the primary? People who are skeptical of Quinnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motives might have hit the nail on the head. For its part, the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office put forth perfectly logical reasons for seeking the delay. For one thing, the governor needs more time to consider late-arriving economic news, according to Brooke Anderson, a spokeswoman. For another, Quinn wants to lay out a 5-year budget blueprint â&#x20AC;&#x153;to really show the meaningful impact over the next 5 years and where Illinois could be,â&#x20AC;? Anderson said. Never mind that a single-year budget is all that Quinn is required to produce. Many Republicans scoffed at what they saw as a politically driven delay. But we imagine procrastinators across the state stood up and cheered. They, better than anyone, appreciate passable, if slightly insincere, excuses for putting off distasteful chores. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know whether Quinn will win re-election in the fall, but for his performance in putting off the delivery of bad political news until after the primary, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly the front-runner to receive Man of the Year honors from Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; procrastinators â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if they ever get around to it.

Go ahead, whine about winter Soon, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be whining about how hot it is The Pantagraph Editorial Board Bloomington

We admire, and want to emulate, folks who accept winter as it is. While many of us are sniveling and whining about the recent bouts of snow and extreme cold, some among us stomp along, answering most winter whines with remarks that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s January, and what should people expect? There is little doubt this winter, so far, has been colder than most, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve received more snow than in recent years. But, at least in the area of snowfall, it appears the past two or three winters have been relatively mild, making this winter seem harsher.

The polar vortex, which is causing a good deal of the extremely cold weather, is somewhat unusual. But generally, Central Illinois can expect to see a cold weather pattern like this every 5 or 10 years. This winter is notable, however, for the number of extremely cold periods that have dipped into Central Illinois. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also better armed to whine about winter. ONE OF THE NEWER weather â&#x20AC;&#x153;statisticsâ&#x20AC;? is wind chill factor, which isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as scientific as you might think. The wind chill factor was first developed in Antarctica before World War II. It came into use by the National Weather Service in the 1970s. The factor is supposed to measure the perceived decrease in air temperature felt by the body on exposed skin because of

the flow of air. The wind chill factor is always lower than the actual temperature. If the factor is higher than the real temperature, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the heat index. But there is a lot of controversy about how the wind chill factor should be calculated. Some think it should measure the effect of temperature and wind on a naked body (no one is volunteering for that duty), and others say it should focus on one area of the body, such as the face. An individualâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response also varies widely. There are a lot of formulas for deciding the wind chill factor. In the U.S. and Canada, the same formula is used. But at its best, wind chill is a highly educated guess. Rest assured, if the temperature is hovering around zero and the wind is howling, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cold.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;

Actually, psychologists say a little whining about the winter is healthy.

The Pantagraph Editorial Board

We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really need to know much more than that. Actually, psychologists say a little whining about the winter is healthy. They call it â&#x20AC;&#x153;validation,â&#x20AC;? and basically it happens when someone says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cold, and someone else agrees. Both parties feel better, even though they are still shivering. So, feel free to whine a little, dress warmly, stay indoors, and dream about July. When we can all complain about how blooming hot it is.

Saddened by interstate death KATE KNOWLES Rock Falls

As the Gazette reports, a man by the name of Lee Catlin froze to death the night of Nov. 12, 2013, lying in a ditch on the side of Interstate 88. For hours before he succumbed, Catlin signaled for help and was seen and reported by several motorists. I am surprised and saddened by the seemingly callous spin taken on this terrible tragedy by the state police, who ultimately failed to locate and rescue Catlin despite repeated 911 calls. I am especially disturbed by the repeated statements that the victim had a history of driving while intoxicated and had severe cirrhosis of the liver. Are the state authorities implying that Catlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death is less tragic because he was an alco-

holic? Indeed, there seems to be quite a hohum attitude about what must have been a horrible, unnecessary death. Hopefully, the state authorities involved in this tragedy will step up to the plate and accept responsibility, and I am glad to see that SVM reporter Christi Warren is looking into the events of Nov. 12.

Thanks to trio of snow angels SHARON GRANT Dixon

During the recent snowstorm on Jan. 26, I had the misfortune to become stranded in a snowdrift outside Dixon on state Route 26. I would like to thank three people who made a bad situation a little easier. I called 911 for assistance and was connected to the Lee County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department. The 911 dispatcher I spoke with told me that

the plows and wreckers had all been pulled off the roads. When I became extremely anxious about the drifting snow around my vehicle, she reassured me I would be OK and even called me back later to check on me to make sure I was OK. I do not know who you are, but I am so grateful to you for being that reassuring voice on the other end of the phone that night. Troy Chandler, the real hero of the night and a person I will never forget, was plowing the road when he saw my vehicle and stopped to ask whether I needed help. By this time, I was scared, cold and soaked to the bone. I have never been so happy to see a total stranger before. Thank you for the ride and being the kind person you are, and most of all for doing the job you do. To Russ at Russâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Towing, thank you for being so quick once the sun

was up and the wreckers were able to get back out on the roads the next morning to pull my vehicle out of the snowdrift before someone hit it. I cannot express my thanks and appreciation enough to the three of you for what you all did for me that night. You are all truly my snow angels.

Give shelter to the animals GORDON BECKER Dixon

Please help the homeless animals that are outside in this terrible winter. They need food, water and shelter to survive. A little food and water and a place to get in out of the cold could mean the difference between life and death. If anyone needs a free, insulated house for an animal theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re feeding, please call 815-973-7009. They suffer just as much as humans do.

MILWAUKEE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Urban Ecology Center does not let winter stop its activities. With three locations, there are plenty of opportunities to get out and get going. The Riverside Park branch is the site of the centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main offices. This is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;greenâ&#x20AC;? building, featuring exhibits and environmental materials. A few of the details to look for include a tower with a climbing wall, a â&#x20AC;&#x153;greenâ&#x20AC;? roof garden with a tipi in the winter, art exhibits, and a classroom with animals hidden in murals. Guests at all three locations can view snakes, frogs, turtles, and fish. They also can help with the feeding of these critters at scheduled times. The Washington Park branch started in 2007. This area has a lagoon adding to its beauty.

What: Urban Ecology Center Where: Milwaukee Three locations: Riverside Park, 1500 E. Park Place; 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m.

At the center, visitors will find canoes, snowshoes, and fishing poles to help them get out into nature. In the right season, gardens complete the scene. In 2012, the Menomonee Valley location opened to the public. This â&#x20AC;&#x153;greenâ&#x20AC;? center used to be the site of a tavern. For fun here, guests can tackle the mini-scavenger hunt, which includes looking for the snake door handle, an exposed wooden wall, and square water containers.

Things to do are readily available at the center. Here is a sample of what can be found there: Saturday: 10 to 11 a.m., sustainable coffee tasting at Riverside Park offers a chance to taste coffee from all over the world.

Artisanal movement reaches food courts U.S. catching up with way rest of world enjoys food ! SSOCIATED0RESS

In Singaporeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s equivalent of food courts, hawkers sell steaming bowls of noodles, giant crabs in pepper sauce and slices of pungent durian. In Barcelona, patrons at the La Boqueria nibble finely aged ham and buy fresh produce to prepare at home. In the United States? Historically, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a wasteland of spongy pretzels, giant sodas, greasy fried rice and endless burgers. But that was Food Court 1.0. Recently, shoppers from New York to Seattle have witnessed a reboot of the food court experience, as sumptuous farmers markets-slashgourmet eateries become increasingly common. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re exciting, delicious, affordable, democratic places to eat,â&#x20AC;? says Stephen Werther, the chief executive officer of Wink Retail Group, which has partnered with food personality Anthony Bourdain to create a New York food hall â&#x20AC;&#x201C; todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preferred nomenclature â&#x20AC;&#x201C; featuring dishes from around the world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really just America catching up with some of the wonderful ways the rest of the world eats.â&#x20AC;? Bourdain joins other name-brand chefs such as Todd English, who opened a food hall in New Yorkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Plaza Hotel in 2010 and Mario Batali, whose Italian-themed Eataly, now in New York and Chicago, might be the best-known of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food halls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In history, markets and collective food areas have been around forever,â&#x20AC;? says Sam Oches, editor

AP

This Aug. 2010 photo shows fish on display for sale at Eatalyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grand opening in New York. The spate of new â&#x20AC;&#x153;food hallsâ&#x20AC;? in the U.S. caters to the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emerging culinary sophistication. of QSR Magazine, which covers the quick service and fast-casual dining industry. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What Mario Batali and Anthony Bourdain are doing is to brand it and make it something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a little bit bigger in terms of its scale and its exposure.â&#x20AC;? And that has paved the way for others, Ochs says. In Washington, D.C., retail developer Edens revived a vintage venue to create Union Market, a 40-artisan food hall that is just over a year old. In Seattle, a high-end â&#x20AC;&#x153;shellfish deliâ&#x20AC;? and other local vendors reside in Melrose Market, a 4-year-old project housed in a renovated auto garage that smacks of cool. In Chicago, the French Market brings together more than 30 vendors, from a crepe shop to a kosher deli and a bakery from Top Chef veteran Stephanie Izard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Customers really want authenticity; they want

the story behind the food,â&#x20AC;? Ochs says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With customers wanting to connect to the food, taking this old model of a market goes a long way. A market can tell a lot of different stories.â&#x20AC;? Markets, of course, have been around for decades, even in the United States. Venues such as Seattleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pike Place Market and North Market in Columbus, Ohio have long attracted tourists. And of course there is San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ferry Building Marketplace, a farmers market and collection of

high-end purveyors such as Recchiuti Confections and Cowgirl Creamery that opened in 2003. But for most Americans, the food hall experience has mostly been limited to the mall food court, a pale imitation of what the rest of the world has long enjoyed. The spate of new options caters to the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emerging culinary sophistication. When market operator Sebastien Bensidoun opened his first market in a Chicago suburb 16 years ago, he says it nearly failed. But when he

launched Chicago French Market in the West Loop in 2009, the country was ready, says Bensidoun, whose family is the largest operator of markets in and around Paris. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are cooking much more than they used to be,â&#x20AC;? says Bensidoun, who now operates 16 markets in the Chicago area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can see the young generation coming to the market. In 1997 that was not the case. People were not buying as they are now.â&#x20AC;? Bensidoun says he often receives calls from other regions asking him to come open a market. Recent interest, he says, has come from cities in Florida, California and Texas. His next project, he says, will be to open a food hall in New York City. Difficult economic times also have fostered the trend of multiple independent vendors in a communal space. At the same time, large retailers have been reluctant to take on new spaces, smaller merchants have seen an opportunity to share rent, utilities and other costs. The growth of Internet shopping, some say, also has supported the trend toward food halls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Food and beverage venues can afford to pay the rent in renovated buildings like ours or in new buildings versus retailers that are getting

squeezed by the Internet and the big box stores,â&#x20AC;? says Scott Shapiro, codeveloper of Seattleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Melrose Market. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Looking at it from a landlordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perspective, our tenants are people who can have a sustainable business. It tends to be more food and beverage focused.â&#x20AC;? The shopping mall food court pre-dates todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s food halls by at least several decades, according to figures from the International Council of Shopping Centers, a New Yorkbased trade association that tracks the first shopping mall food court as we know it to a Paramus, N.J., shopping center in 1974. Industry experts say even these venues are evolving. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The food court still exists, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s giving the consumer multiple different options,â&#x20AC;? says ICSC spokesman Jesse Tron, noting that healthier and more diverse options are becoming increasingly common at shopping centers. Well-known chefs also are opening mall venues, Tron says, and even kiosks are sometimes being used for experiences such as rotating sushi. But true food halls likely will continue to represent the top of the food chain in communal eating. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Food halls are not a new idea,â&#x20AC;? Bourdainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partner Werther says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Food halls are a wonderful old idea whose time has come around again.â&#x20AC;?

Gravity, Occult Forces, and the Mystery of Spirit The idea that Newton discovered gravity after being struck by a falling apple is doubtful. Newton had a lifelong interest in alchemy, magic, and occult forces, and his theory of gravity may have been inspired by the idea of occult forces, i.e., the idea that objects can have an effect on other objects without touching them. Gravity is essentially action at a distance.The earth doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to touch the moon in order to exert a gravitational pull on it.This may seem obvious to us now, but there is still something deeply mysterious about how objects affect other objects without actually touching them. How does gravity or magnetism work, unless the space beX[IIR SFNIGXW MW E OMRH SJ žYMH SV IXLIV MR [LMGL XLI] EVI EGXYEPP] GSRRIGXIH# 3V MW WTEGI MXWIPJ E OMRH SJ žYMH VEXLIV XLER ER IQTX] ZEGYYQ# 1MRHW EVI IUYEPP] Q]WXIVMSYW 1MRHW WIIQ XS FI MR GSRXEGX [MXL SXLIV QMRHW JSV MRWXERGI [LIR [I WIRWI [LEX WSQISRI MW going to say or how they feel.

WASHINGTON

Ex-warlord launches campaign House conservatives

rule out immigration legislation this year

Sayyaf joins group vying for presidency KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; He has been called a mentor to accused 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and the man who welcomed Osama bin Laden to Afghanistan in the 1990s. He was accused of war crimes and atrocities, and even has a terror group named after him in the Philippines. But these days, Abdul Rab Rasoul Sayyaf has refashioned himself as an influential lawmaker, elder statesman and religious scholar â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and possibly the next president of Afghanistan. While Sayyaf is not the only former warlord among the 11 candidates in the April 5 election to succeed President Hamid Karzai, he appears to have sparked the greatest worry among Westerners because he is seen as having a viable chance at winning. Other frontrunners include Abdullah Abdullah, who was the runner-up to Karzai in the disputed 2009 elections; Qayyum Kar-

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Conservative Republicans on Wednesday ruled out any immigration legislation in the House this year, insisting that the GOP should wait until next year, when the party might also control the Senate. House GOP leaders unveiled their broad immigration principles last week that gave hope to advocates and the Obama administration that the first changes in the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s laws in three decades might happen in the coming months. Immigration legislation is one of the top priorities for Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second term. But several of the conservatives were adamant that the House should do nothing on the issue this year, a midterm election year when the GOP is angling to gain six seats in the Senate and seize majority control. Democrats currently have a 55-45 advantage but are defending more seats, including ones in Republican-leaning states. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a mistake for us to have an internal bat-

Afghan presidential candidate and former warlord Abdul Rab Rasoul Sayyaf (center) arrives at a campaign rally Thursday in Kabul, Afghanistan. Sayyaf, who has been accused of war crimes and atrocities during the 1990s, appeared before thousands of supporters and laid out a vision for Afghanistanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future that bore striking similarities to the policy platforms of many of the more moderate presidential hopefuls in the field of 11 vying to succeed President Hamid Karzai. zai, a businessman and the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s older brother; and Ashraf Ghani, a former finance minister and academic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Afghanistan still depends on the good will of foreign donors for nearly all of its governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget,â&#x20AC;? said Graeme Smith, senior Afghanistan analyst with the Brussels-based International Crisis

Group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Sayyaf win would probably really test those relationships because foreign donors might not be thrilled by some of his positions.â&#x20AC;? Still, when Sayyaf appeared before thousands of supporters in Kabul on Thursday, he laid out a vision for Afghanistanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future that bore striking similarities to the policy platforms

of many of the more moderate presidential hopefuls. Staunchly anti-Taliban, Sayyaf spoke of the importance of fighting corruption and boosting security and the rule of law. He expressed an openness to signing a security deal with the U.S., as well as support for women to work in professions prohibited under the Taliban.

tle in the Republican Party this year about immigration reform,â&#x20AC;? Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, told reporters at a gathering of conservatives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think when we take back the Senate in 2014, one of the first things we should do next year after we do certain economic issues, I think we should address the immigration issue.â&#x20AC;? Labradorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comments were noteworthy as he was one of eight House members working on bipartisan immigration legislation last year. He later abandoned the negotiations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is not an issue thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ready for prime time to move legislatively,â&#x20AC;? said Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas, who said Republicans should use the principles to begin a dialogue with Hispanics. Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said the House should focus on the four bills dealing with security that the Judiciary Committee approved last summer. Absent any action on those bills, Jordan said it would be tough to do any immigration legislation this year.

Insane Clown Posse festival leaving state Trouble-plagued event moving from southern Illinois town to Kaiser, Mo. ST. LOUIS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; An annual festival headlined by the rap-metal group Insane Clown Posse will be staged at a Missouri farmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campground after 7 years in southern Illinois, promoters of the trouble-plagued Gathering of the Juggalos said. Suburban Detroit-based Psychopathic Records Inc. offered few details on the shift from the Hogrock campsite near Cave-In-Rock â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the gatheringâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home since 2007 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to the CryBaby Campground in Kaiser, a rural community about 170 miles west of St. Louis. The Missouri site, on a 300-acre farm near the

Osage River that promoters labeled Harlequin Park, offers a similar intimacy the gatherers enjoyed at Hogrock but has amenities the Illinois location lacked, including cellphone reception and nearby hotels and shops, the promoters said. Psychopathic Records spokesman Jason Webber said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kaiser is perfectâ&#x20AC;? for the 4-day event in August. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Juggalos can expect something very special for our 15th annual family reunion,â&#x20AC;? Webber wrote in an email Thursday to The Associated Press. While drawing some 10,000 people each year,

In this Aug. 2012 file photo, confetti is released over the crowd for the grand finale of Insane Clown Posseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance on the last night of the Gathering of the Juggalos near Cave-In-Rock. Organizers are moving the event to central Missouri town of Kaiser. the festival has developed a reputation for unruliness marked by drug overdoses, fights, arrests and deaths of Juggalos,

the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s small hospital. He said Juggalos often didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t carrying identification, or they gave the medical staff aliases so they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be billed for treatment. Bill Abbott, the sheriff of Miller County where the CryBaby Campground is located, said he has heard the Juggalos â&#x20AC;&#x153;do a lot of drugs, fighting, stealing.â&#x20AC;? But he brushed off worries that the event bound for his turf, where the motorcycle club Hellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Angels have convened twice before, might be a burden. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking for trouble, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find trouble. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want no trouble here whatsoever, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, either,â&#x20AC;? Abbott said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want them to obey the laws and have a good time.â&#x20AC;?

Storms boost business at state auto repair businesses, insurers Many shops have long wait times because of demand SPRINGFIELD (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; This seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unrelenting winter is proving to be big business for auto repair businesses and insurers, who say theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seeing a sharp increase in claims. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a 3-week wait for work at Springfield Collision Center, where mechanics are logging 12-hour shifts to keep up with demand, according to a report in The Springfield State Journal-Register. At Zaraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Collision Center, owner Brad Zara had to change how snow is removed to make room for more cars needing work. Many of the repairs involve dented fenders and buckled hoods, along

In 2010, fans pelted actress Tila Tequila with stones, bottles and feces, and a fan was stabbed. One attendee drowned the following year while trying to swim in the nearby Ohio River. And last year, a 24-year-old fan, Cory Collins of Harrisburg, was found dead on the festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grounds, where dozens of attendees were arrested on drug-related and disorderly conduct charges. The gathering was a recurring headache for Hardin County Sheriff Jerry Fricker, given the overtime his Illinois department was forced to shell out for deputies to monitor and control the crowds. Fricker has said it also was a drain on the ambulance service and

with damaged undercarriages. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of them are sliding into ditches and sometimes hitting the curb and taking out the suspension,â&#x20AC;? Zara said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can do a lot of damage under a car.â&#x20AC;? Meanwhile, insurers say theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sorting through a marked increase in claims compared to previous years. Bloomington-based Country Financial has received more than 14,600 auto and property claims in December and January. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up 30 percent from the same period last year, when the company got 11,237 claims. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This means adjust-

ers are working 12-hour days, especially in hard hit states like Illinois and Georgia,â&#x20AC;? spokesman Chris Stroisch said. Claims were up 21 percent in December at State Farm, which is also headquartered in Bloomington. Spokeswoman Missy Dundov says Januaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claims are also expected to be higher. And Illinois Insurance Association executive Kevin Martin said members are also reporting increases in property claims because of frozen pipes. So far this winter, the Chicago area has received almost 60 inches of snow, making it among the snowiest on record in the city.

AFC beats depleted Missiles Milledgeville suits up only six in loss BY PATRICK PETROSKY ppetrosky@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 553

MILLEDGEVILLE – AFC put the pedal to the metal in the second quarter on Thursday and didn’t look back, as they completed revenge against Milledgeville. They did it in blowout fashion, winning 77-55. While a win is a win, the Raiders (8-13, 3-5NUIC East) wished it could have happened while the Missiles (15Troy 4, 5-3 NUIC Mairs AFC East) were senior full strength. Milledgeville was without five-players, who were suspended from the team. Milledgeville coach Brian Rahn said the players were suspended for undisclosed reasons. He did not know how long the players would be gone. “I thought it was a secret plan to try to catch us relaxed, and they were going to show up at tip-off,” AFC coach Russ Zick said.

Erie-Prophetstown’s Dylan Binion made a tough call before high school between wrestling and playing basketball. While he misses hoops, he has become an important part of the Panthers’ lineup as a sophomore.

Going extra miles Panthers’ Binion shining on mat after giving up basketball BY LARRY BRENNAN lbrennan@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 550

DEPLETED CONTINUED ON B6

Star of the game: Troy Mairs, AFC, 16 points, 9 rebounds Key performers: Lucas Ebersole, Milledgeville, 22 points, 9 rebounds; David Zinke, AFC, 18 points

Dylan Binion is a worker. The Erie High School sophomore 152-pounder on the Panthers wrestling team impressed his coach with his work ethic, but it wasn’t necessarily on the mat. “He lives about 10 miles out of town,” Panthers coach Tod McCullough said. “Before he got his driver’s license, he’d ride his bike to the weightroom, lift for an hour-and-a-half, come to open mat for an hour, then ride his bike home. You don’t see that in many kids anymore.” Binion, who is 26-6 this season and receiving honorable mention in the Illinois Matmen rankings, also loves basketball. He had to

choose between hoops and the mat heading into high school. “It was a really hard decision,” the soft-spoken Binion said. “It was hard to pick which one I wanted to do, and which one I like more and wanted to go further with. “I play basketball all the time. I still support the [basketball] team and go to as many games as I can. Sometimes I wish I could still play. I get that feeling like back in middle school when I played.” It would seem that Binion made the right choice. Success helped with the decision. After wrestling briefly as a youth, Binion did not take it up again until sixth grade. He went to the IESA state tournament as a seventh-grader, then placed third at state as an eighth-grader.

GIRLS BASKETBALL | OTTAWA 34, DIXON 25

Old adage proves true Pirates win defensive struggle to clinch NIB-12 BY DAN WOESSNER dwoessner@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 555

DIXON – If defense wins championships, then the Dixon Duchesses and Ottawa Pirates could be hoisting up plaques in the next couple of weeks if Thursday night is any indicator. Both clubs made life rough on the opposing offenses, leading to a low-scoring affair that resulted in a 34-25 win for the Pirates at Lancaster Gym. With the win, Ottawa claims one title – the NIB12 West championship. The Pirates are 8-0 with two games left. Geneseo and Sterling, which are tied for second, both have three losses. Ottawa shared the title with Sterling last year. “We needed this win to clinch conference, and Michael Krabbenhoeft/mkrabbenhoeft@saukvalley.com Dixon’s Carly Hartle shoots over Ottawa’s Sam McGrath during we were able to take care of business,” Ottawa Thursday’s game at Lancaster Gym. Ottawa clinched the NIB-12 coach Mike Cooper said. “We didn’t have school yesterday and couldn’t practice, and I think that West title with a 34-25 win.

Star of the game: Carly Hartle, Dixon, 13 points, 9 rebounds Key performers: Sam McGrath, Ottawa, 10 points, 5 rebounds; Jasmin Bailey, Ottawa, 8 points, 5 steals Up next: Stillman Valley at Dixon, 6 p.m. Saturday led us to being a little lethargic. “Give credit to Dixon. Coach Ravlin had them coached very well defensively, and they executed very well. He has them playing well and going in the right direction.” Ottawa (19-2) gained control of the game by scoring the first six points – including two baskets by forward Sam McGrath.

Whew, we made it past that S

o now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re done with one of the worst days in sports. No, not Wash Your Face With Sochi Water Day. And no, not Some Idiot Interviewed Dennis Rodman Day. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m talking about national signing day. On Wednesday, it was football. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also one of these for basketball. Both are examples of how pathetic sports can be. Signing day is when snot-nosed high school kids get empowered. No, wait, they get time slots for TV. No lie. One player had scheduled his announcement for 9 a.m. on ESPNU. Another kid was scheduled for 3 p.m. Still another player took the 5:30 p.m. slot. It all seemed scripted. Congratulations, America, on sportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Teenagers and Tiaras.â&#x20AC;? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t blame the kids for acting like big shots.

The reaction frequently is swift and angry by spurned fans who have no idea whether the kid can make a difference. Sometimes I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the coach is even sure of that.

Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even more to like about a winning game day on campus. I get that. But I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the way signing days have become a different kind of contact sport. The ensuing ugliness seems inexplicable. Maybe Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d feel different if I were a massive fan of my alma mater, the University of Southern California. (Pete Carroll motto: We cheat, we win, we vacate â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the veni, vidi, vici of college sports). But if feeling that way were to lead me to pull off some of this signing day nonsense, then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not.

Trevor Bayne revealed last fall that he has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. The 20-year-old Nationwide Series driver hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let that slow him down. He is getting ready for the upcoming season, and training for his next triathlon.

TALLADEGA, Ala. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Trevor Bayne speeds around tracks in his No. 21 Ford, getting himself and his car ready for the upcoming season, and then does it some more in his running shoes whenever he gets the chance. The 2011 Daytona 500 winner and part-time triathlete is fit, motivated, and hungry to contend for another big win upon his return later this month to the scene of his greatest triumph and to challenge for a Nationwide Series championship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a really big year for us,â&#x20AC;? Bayne said during a break from Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s solitary testing session. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scheduled to run 12 Sprint Cup races, including all four on the speedways, with The Wood Brothers, plus a full-time Nationwide schedule for Roush Fenway Racing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being here at Talladega by ourselves today, I think that shows that this team wants to do what it takes to be the best and to have a shot to win those 12 races that we show up at,â&#x20AC;? he said. The daily workouts, including those squeezed-in runs at racetracks, are also indicative of his thriving health. Bayne went public in November with the revelation that he has multiple sclerosis, but

What is MS? s-ULTIPLESCLEROSISISACHRONIC OFTENDISABLINGDISEASETHAT ATTACKSTHECENTRALNERVOUSSYS TEM3YMPTOMSMAYBEMILD SUCHASNUMBNESSINTHELIMBS ORSEVERE SUCHASPARALYSISOR LOSSOFVISION * Source: nationalmssociety.org said he still has no symptoms and isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t taking medication. An outspoken Christian, who often shares his religious testimony in speeches, Bayne said that good health just reinforces his faith. Bayne also said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been training harder than ever, meeting three times a week with a personal trainer, and going on 1½-mile swims, 3-mile runs and 25-plus mile bike rides. Wintry weather played havoc with his lunchtime running plans on the 2.66-mile tri-oval Thursday. But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got his next triathlon coming up in April in Charleston, S.C., so clearly multiple sclerosis isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t slowing him down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fortunately for me at this point, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had no impact on me,â&#x20AC;? Bayne said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a huge blessing, because there are people that have it worse. There are some that never even know they have it and live a perfectly normal life. To know that I have

it is good to me because it creates a dependence for me daily on the Lord.â&#x20AC;? The 22-year-old, who also got married last year, hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recaptured the winning formula since becoming the youngest winner of NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest race at 20. In fact, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only had two Top 10 finishes in his other 45 starts, one of them coming at Talladega in 2012. Nowhere near old enough to be a has-been, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still in the early stages of a career that happened to start in stirring fashion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 22, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just getting started,â&#x20AC;? team co-owner Len Wood said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fortunately for him, he started with a bang. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was only his second-ever start. That was a big deal when it happened, and if we get him another one, that could be equally as big.â&#x20AC;? Bayne will return to Daytona for the Feb. 23 race. The restrictor plate races are a priority for The Wood Brothers. They tested at Daytona earlier, and then spent 2 days working the car around the tri-oval at Talladega, running solo on Thursday. Since he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be competing in every Sprint Cup race, Bayne will face extra pressure in NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overhauled qualifying sessions to make sure he makes the field in his scheduled events.

Dixonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Katie Dewey looks to make a pass during Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game against Ottawa at Lancaster Gym. Dixon lost 34-25.

He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t immediately commit to wrestling again as a sixth-grader. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go out right away,â&#x20AC;? Binion said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was like a couple weeks into the season that I decided I was going to do this.â&#x20AC;?

As a freshman, Binion stepped right into the 152-pound spot in the varsity lineup. He went on to a third-place finish at regionals. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not always the strongest that survive on the mat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people are stronger than me, but I kind of make up for it with quickness,â&#x20AC;?

Binion said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a heck of an athlete,â&#x20AC;? McCullough said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When they bring that much talent, it makes you look good. I think any time he wants, he can take people down. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a nice, quick double. When he wants to go get it, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to defend.â&#x20AC;? Basketball isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the

only love Binion has put aside. â&#x20AC;&#x153;During the summer, I used to ride motocross with my cousin. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tried to get away from that. I did it once last summer. I put it away. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to get hurt for sports. I did it for a few years a couple years ago. I did every race in Morrison.â&#x20AC;?

Pressure them into going to high

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

If you wish to be successful at the top level of anything, you must be able to handle the pressure. This applies even at the bridge table. But there is another form of pressure in bridge – preemptive bids, which pressure the opponents by removing bidding space. Look at the South hand. After two passes, what would you open? In the first two positions, one heart would be a popular choice. But after two passes, the dynamic changes. North-South’s chances of making game have diminished. It is time to pressure West. Open three hearts! Or, if that is too rich for you, bid

two hearts. Now look at the full deal. After a threeheart opening, West would make a takeout double and East would advance with three spades. This contract

would go down after three rounds of hearts are played, but West would never pass with such a strong hand. He would carry his side into deeper waters. At the table, South opened one heart, West doubled, North responded one notrump, East passed, South rebid two hearts, and this ended the auction when West very cautiously passed. The defense was excellent, though. West led the spade ace: three, six, queen. West, not fooled, continued with the spade king, and East dropped his nine, a suit-preference signal for diamonds (the higher-ranking of the other two side suits). West cashed his diamond ace, gave his partner a diamond ruff, got back on lead with the club ace, and gave East a second ruff for down one. © 2014 UFS

Dixon’s Brooke Bailey looks for a pass during Thursday’s game against Ottawa at Lancaster Gym. The Pirates clinched the NIB-12 West with a 34-25 win over the Duchesses.

CONTINUED FROM B1

That run took up the first 4 minutes of the game. Brittani Sohn cut into the lead with a pair jumpers, but Ottawa outscored Dixon 5-2 to finish the quarter. McGrath had a three-point play to run her total for the quarter to seven. “I am really proud of the way we played defense,” Dixon’s coach Luke Ravlin said. “We didn’t box out very well in the first half, but the effort on

defense was great.” The key for the Duchesses (13-9, 4-4) was stopping all-conference guards Catie Carlson and Jasmin Bailey. That job fell mainly on the trio of Sohn, Maggie Bushman and Katie Dewey. Carlson had five points – the biggest on a breakout layup to end the third quarter to put Ottawa up by nine at 27-18. Bailey had eight points, with her biggest contribution coming on defense, where she had five steals. “The job that Sohn, Bushman and Dewey did on defense was

amazing,” Ravlin said. “Those are two 3-year all-conference guards, and we were able to hold them in check. We just couldn’t get shots to fall on the other end.” Sohn scored all six points for Dixon in the first quarter. Hartle had all five Dixon points in the second quarter. In fact, Brooke Bailey was the only other Duchess to score in the game. Bailey, the reigning NIB12 West MVP, was held to six points on 2-for-13 shooting. “That took a lot of work by Jessica Wignes and

Kasia Miceli to fight through screens and make things tough for her,” Cooper said. Dixon shot 11-for-32 from the field, Hartle being the bright spot. She made six of nine attempts and had 13 points to go with nine rebounds. “It wasn’t a good shooting night for us,” Hartle said. “It’s a little frustrating, but we played really well on defense. We’re really excited for the next couple weeks, because we’ve been playing well. We just need to block out better and hopefully the shots will fall.”

Crash changed luge forever Speed no longer main factor for sliding sports BY TOM WITHERS AP Sports Writer

KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Everyone knew the danger. An uneasiness hung in the frosted Canadian air 4 years ago. Nerves were on edge. For good reason. Just hours before the flame was ignited on Feb. 12, 2010 in Vancouver, an otherwise typical morning in the picture-perfect Blackcomb Mountains turned tragic. Back in Lake Placid, N.Y., Aidan Kelly was on his computer in study hall monitoring the luge competitors as they took their final training runs on the Whistler track before the start of the Winter Olympics. Without warning, the screen went dark. Disaster, as some feared would happen, came in an unimaginable flash. In one moment, the sport of luge was forever changed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was that nerd kid who watched everything about luge,â&#x20AC;? said Kelly, a U.S. luger who was just 15 at the time and dreaming of competing in the Olympics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The guy on the track was going and going and then ... .â&#x20AC;? And then Nodar Kumaritashvili, the slider Kelly was watching, was dead. The worst-case scenario, the one foretold by startling speeds, experienced champions crashing during practice, even private predictions

In this Feb. 11, 2010, file photo Nodar Kumaritashvili of Georgia practices during a menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s singles luge training run at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. Four years ago, Olympic luge was forever changed. The horrifying death of Kumaritashvili, a 21-year-old who was taught to slide by his father and uncle in war-torn Georgia, cast a pall over the Vancouver Games and raised questions about track safety and design. from sliding officials, had occurred. Kumaritashvili, an easygoing 21-year-old from a tiny skiing village in war-torn Georgia, where his father and uncle raised him to slide, was thrown from his sled traveling at nearly 90 mph, faster than he had ever gone before. Unable to navigate the last turn of the treacherous track, Kumaritashvili, who had escaped injury during an earlier wreck, went feet-first into one wall, the impact somehow ricocheting

his body off the track and the back of his head struck an exposed steel pole within sight of the finish line. He died instantly. His death sapped joy from the games, and raised questions about safety and whether the sliding sports â&#x20AC;&#x201C; bobsled, skeleton and luge â&#x20AC;&#x201C; had pushed the threshold of human performance too far in trying to see how fast highly trained athletes on wind-tunneltested, state-of-the-art equipment could go on

ice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What happened in Vancouver, people can term it as a freak accident, but I think it taught a lesson to a lot of people in the sport to take a lot more care when it comes to safety issues,â&#x20AC;? said Indian luger Shiva Keshavan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done here.â&#x20AC;?

Rookie waits out rain, fires bogey-free 63 in first round BY DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer

AP

Phil Mickelson drive from the 13th tee of the Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula during the first round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Thursday in Pebble Beach, Calif. played the easiest, and Loupe took advantage. He never had to scramble for par, missed only one fairway, and only two of his birdies were over 10 feet. This was his first trip to the area, and it was everything he imagined. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This place is amazing,â&#x20AC;?

Loupe said with a smile as wide as a fairway. The 25-year-old from Louisiana hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t made the cut in five starts his rookie season. Loupe might not even have a PGA Tour card except for his tie for sixth in the last event of the Web.

com Tour Finals. He had missed the cut in his previous three â&#x20AC;&#x153;Finalsâ&#x20AC;? events. Stuart Appleby, Jim Renner, Richard Lee and Scott Gardiner had 65s at Monterey Peninsula. Phil Mickelson, a fourtime champion, was at 5-under par through 15 holes when the round was stopped because of darkness. Pebble Beach played the toughest, though the weather was not nearly bad enough to make that much of a difference, with only a cool breeze and no rain the rest of the day. Jimmy Walker, already a two-time winner this season, got up-and-down for birdie on the 18th for a 66, the best score at Pebble. Jordan Spieth, playing with country singer Jake Owen, had the best round at Spyglass Hill at 67.

Zinke gets hot from outside to lift Raiders CONTINUED FROM B1

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to get better, no matter what team we play against,â&#x20AC;? Zick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are going to try and do the same thing. We never try to change our game to play to theirs. We play our game, and do what we can do.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite on the terms we would have liked,â&#x20AC;? senior Troy Mairs said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;with all their players gone. But we came out and did what we needed to do.â&#x20AC;? Mairs and sophomore David Zinke keyed an early run by the Raiders. While Mairs roamed the baseline and took

the defenseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attention, Zinke became an outside threat. That still didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop the 6-foot, 7-inch Mairs from getting his share, as he had a mixture of 15-foot jumpers and layups to accumulate 14 first-half points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;David really came out of his funk tonight,â&#x20AC;? Mairs said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been hitting his shots too well, but he came out tonight was able hit his shots. That makes them guard him outside, which frees us inside. I was able to find the corners and was hitting the baseline jumpers all game. We had a height advantage, too, so we were able to lob it inside.â&#x20AC;? Zinkeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shot of the night

came as the first half was winding down. The sophomore guard received the ball at the top of the key with about 5 seconds left. He fired up a 3-pointer that landed on the front of the rim, and rattled around before dropping as the buzzer sounded. AFC went into halftime up 38-23. Zinke finished with 15 points. Milledgeville kept fighting, as it tried to claw its way back. Senior Zach Herin and junior Lucas Ebersole shouldered a bulk of the scoring for the Missiles. Herin finished the night with 13 points and had eight rebounds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a team that likes to pressure, and try to cause havoc and

turnovers and things like that,â&#x20AC;? Milledgeville coach Brian Rahn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re playing with six guys, that goes off the table, because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re risking foul trouble and wearing your guys out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some players played out of position, and I was really proud of the boys with how well they played. They did everything they could do, especially in a situation like this with no practice, but a game the night before.â&#x20AC;? Ebersole led a brief fourth quarter comeback for the Missiles. The forward hit three 3-pointers, and finished with 22 points. He was a rebound short of a double-double.

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Andrew Loupe knows how 1 week can change everything. He can only hope his 8-under 63 in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am is the start of another one. Loupe had to wait 3 hours to tee off because of rain Thursday, and then he played bogeyfree on the Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula. That gave him the lowest score among those who finished their rounds. Rain soaked the Monterey Peninsula in the morning, which was great news for an area desperate for rain, but not so much for the tournament. Puddles quickly formed on the greens at Pebble Beach and Spyglass Hill, forcing play to be stopped on all three courses. Monterey Peninsula

THE CLASSIFIED Advertising Department of Sauk Valley Media does not have the opportunity to fully investigate the credibility of each advertiser appearing within these columns. If an offer sounds â&#x20AC;&#x153;too good to be trueâ&#x20AC;? it probably is. Proceed with caution if you are asked to send money or to give a credit card number. Proceed with caution in calling 900 phone numbers. All phone numbers prefixed by â&#x20AC;&#x153;900â&#x20AC;? are charged to the CALLER. Charges may be assessed on a â&#x20AC;&#x153;per minuteâ&#x20AC;? basis rather than a â&#x20AC;&#x153;per callâ&#x20AC;? basis. Sauk Valley Classified makes every effort to qualify these charges for the reader. If you have a concern about an advertiser, please contact the Better Business Bureau 330 N. Wabash, Chicago, IL 60611. 312-832-0500

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Don’t expect others to see things your way. Patience and moderation will be required. A tricky situation can go either way. Don’t take chances when it comes to how you earn your living. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Stay calm, even if your principles are questioned.
