WINTER WEATHER WALNUT

Unlocking PANDAS

Heavy snow to fall today Up to 4 inches of fresh white flakes in forecast; sleet could be in mix BY KATHLEEN A. SCHULTZ kschultz@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 535

Kloey, 5, Jaclyn, 28, Thomas, 35, and Gabi Trujillo, 3, are show in there home in Walnut. Kloey was diagnosed with a rare disease called PANDAS. It usually occurs in young children from a strep infection that is thought to trigger OCD, tics, and other neuropsychiatric disorders. It isn’t caused by the infection directly, but by the body’s response to strep. PANDAS experts believe it is an autoimmune disease that continually interferes with the basal ganglia, the part of the brain that controls movement and behavior.

Benefit for Kloey

WALNUT – Jaclyn and Thomas Trujillo’s daughter, Kloey, loved school, playing with other children, and participating in a variety of activities. Then, for no apparent reason, everything in the extremely intelligent 5-year-old’s once-safe world suddenly changed. “Last year around Halloween, we noticed she had problems with any changes in her routine,” Jaclyn, 28, said. “When she didn’t want to go to a Halloween party, I started to sense something was wrong.” The normally sociable little girl went to the party, but gripped her mother’s hand the entire time. The unusual behaviors and the Walnut family’s struggles were just beginning.

What: Vendor and craft sale featuring fisherman Matt “Cat Matt” Jones When: 1 to 4 p.m. Feb. 23 Where: Cochran’s Pub, 13464 Galt Road, Sterling More info: Email Jaclyn Trujillo at jaclyn_grace85@hotmail.com or call her at 815-973-6851 PANDAS details: www.pppas. org; www.pandasresourcenetwork. org; www.pandasnetwork.org “Kloey dropped out of dance. She woke up screaming because she didn’t want to go on an outing with her Scouts troop,” Jaclyn said. “She would become terrified over any small changes.”

Then Kloey started exhibiting severe obsessive-compulsive disorder traits. Getting her dressed became a nightmare. “She couldn’t stand the way her pants touched her ankles, the way her shoes fit her, or the presence of a line on her shirt – she would have a total meltdown over everything,” Jaclyn said. For a month straight, the only thing she would wear was a dance leotard – and it had to be black. Jaclyn washed the same leotard and pair of capri pants every night and was forced to send her daughter to school in ballet shoes. Communication became difficult amid some of the autism-like behaviors, and sometimes drawing pictures became the only option. PANDAS CONTINUED ON A10

Prepare yourself: This morning’s commute could be yucky. In anticipation of up to 4 more inches of snow on the ground before day’s end, Rock Falls declared a snow emergency Sunday that takes effect at noon today and lasts until 6 a.m. Wednesday. Other cities likely will follow suit. In a snow emergency, drivers are not to park on designated snow routes until both sides of the street have been plowed. On the rest of the roads, drivers are to park on the odd-numbered side of the street on an odd-numbered day of the month - like today and on the even-numbered side on an even-numbered day, to make it easier for the plows to do their jobs. Failure to comply could mean a ticket, a tow or both. The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory, warning of a hazardous storm system that could bring a mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain to the Sauk Valley. It was to have started early this morning. Winds will be from the south/ southeast, 10 to 15 mph, gusting up to 20 mph and sending snow drifting. The high will be around 30, the low around 17. The precipitation is expected to turn to snow only by mid morning; it will be heavy at times, causing low visibility and fast accumulations, the service says. It should stop falling by about 4 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday will be mostly sunny, with highs in the upper 30s, but there’s a 70 percent chance snow, possibly mixed with freezing rain, before midnight Wednesday. And get this: Thursday’s forecast calls for rain – and possibly a thunderstorm. A thunderstorm. The high should be near 41. Then there’s a chance of snow every night through Saturday, the weather service says.

COLETA

Cleanup upsets 2011 fire survivor Man’s mother lost life in blaze; father died weeks later BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 525

COLETA – A fire that destroyed a two-story house in Coleta nearly 3 years ago was a tragedy. Doris Kvinge, 85, lost her life in the blaze, while her husband, Milton, 87, was taken to the hospital. He died 3 weeks later. One of their five children, son Marc Kvinge, now 59, lived with them. He was on a respirator for a few days after the fire, but he recovered.

Today, he’s involved in a dispute – and a lawsuit – with village officials over the property. They say the site was an eyesore and a problem for months after the fire. He disagrees with the way the village cleaned up the property – and he wonders what happened to a car his parents owned.

It looked really bad,” she said in a recent interview. “The weeds were 3 feet high, and the lawn wasn’t mowed.

‘Nothing brings out the hatred quicker...’ O

n our Facebook page, immigration is one of the hottest topics. Recently, we published a story on a local group that is helping immigrants who are in the country illegally to get driver’s licenses, which Illinois now allows. The piece drew 276 comments on our Facebook page. One woman had nothing good to say about “illegals.� “They carry illegal drugs

and drive while smoking pot. Don’t tell me that having a driver’s license is a good thing for an illegal,� she said. “I say

deport them until they speak English, our language. ‌� Such comments are highly provocative. This idea that immigrants aren’t absorbing the English language is untrue. Studies, for instance, show that second-generation Mexican immigrants are learning English just as fast as previous waves of immigrants – if not faster. Public schools have a lot to do with that. The goal of bilingual educa-

tion – as controversial as it is – is to teach students English. Immigration has long riled people – here and elsewhere. In the 1800s, the railroad moguls brought over Chinese immigrants in droves to build the nation’s rail network. But it turned out a lot of people didn’t want them around – thus the Chinese Exclusion Act, signed in 1882, barring immigration of all Chinese laborers.

Before the Civil War, one of the biggest national movements was a third party known as the Know-Nothings. Their philosophy was essentially hatred of German and Irish Catholic immigrants. In the 1920s, much of the Midwest – the Sauk Valley included – was in the grasp of the Ku Klux Klan. Their biggest target at the time: Catholics. On our Facebook page, frequent commenter Jor-

dan Bowman wrote, “I’ve said it before, in the Sauk Valley, nothing brings out the hatred quicker than the topic of immigration.� It’s not new, and it’s not limited to the Sauk Valley.

Sterling man arrested in heroin investigation BY KATHLEEN A. SCHULTZ KSCHULTZ SAUKVALLEYCOM    EXT

DIXON – Bond was set at $250,000 Sunday for a Sterling man accused of selling heroin to a police informant. Tysheed D. Steward, 34, formerly of Chicago and Wisconsin, was in Lee County Jail Sunday. He sold less than a gram of heroin to the informant at 7 p.m. Friday in front of Sterling High School, Dixon Police said in a news release. His arrest is part of an ongoing investigation into heroin sales in the area, and more arrests are pending, the release said.

Steward is charged with four felonies: possessing heroin, conspiracy to sell herTysheed D. oin, selling it, and sellSteward ing it within 1,000 feet of a school. The most serious charge, selling near a school, carries 4 to 15 years in prison. Court records show Steward also has a felony domestic battery case pending in Whiteside County, stemming from an arrest in September. He posted 10 percent of his $20,000 bond and was released; a trial tentatively has been set for March 18. In August 2012, Steward was sentenced to 14 years in prison after being

found guilty of selling cocaine in a Whiteside County bench trial. According to online court records, he appealed that sentence and also sought a new trial; the results of those requests were not available online and no one could be reached over the weekend to explain why Steward served less than a year before being released from prison. Complete records and court officials will not be available until Tuesday because courts are closed today for President’s Day. Steward also was arrested in Whiteside County in March and in June on Wisconsin warrants charging him with violating his probation there. According to that state’s online court records, he

was found guilty in 2009 of strangulation and suffocation, and of false imprisonment, both felonies, as well as misdemeanor intimidating a witness, disorderly conduct, battery and resisting an officer, all in Dane County. His sentence there was unavailable. According to Wisconsin state statute, “whoever intentionally impedes the normal breathing or circulation of blood by applying pressure on the throat or neck or by blocking the nose or mouth of another person� is guilty of strangulation and suffocation. The State Police Blackhawk Area Task Force and the Lee County State’s Attorney’s Office also are participating in the heroin investigation, the release said.

‘I got things after the fact’

For the past couple of years, Douglas said, the village asked the family “nicely� to clean up the property. “No one responded,� she said. “No one wanted to do anything.� The village, represented by attorney Lon Richey, filed a lawsuit in early June to seek action. No one showed up at a June 14 hearing, when the village got permission to clean up the property. The project took place later that summer. According to the county, property tax bills for 204 N. Main St. are being sent to Marc’s former apartment address in Rock Falls. Milton is listed as the property’s owner. During a hearing in December – after the demolition occurred – Marc attended, but without an attorney.

In a telephone interview, Marc said his mail was forwarded from Rock Falls to California, where he moved last spring. But he said he never received the notice for the June hearing. “I got things after the fact,� he said. Marc said he understood why the village filled in the hole and charged his father’s estate. But he questioned why it also took down trees, removed a 1997 Oldsmobile with only 70,000 miles, and demolished the separate, undamaged garage, which he said was in good condition. He said he left rubble in the hole, but removed all of the above-ground debris. “The garage could have used a coat of paint,� he said, “but you don’t tear down a garage because it

needs a coat of paint.� The well, he said, was capped not long after the fire. Douglas, however, said the property was a mess that needed to be cleaned up. And she said the garage wasn’t in good condition. As for the car, she said: “Whoever cleaned up the property towed it behind town hall. Then it was gone. I have no idea where it went.� The cleanup cost about $20,000, and the village has put a lien on the property, Douglas said. Coleta will have to foreclose on the property to sell it, she said.

‘Then I heard an explosion’ Shortly after midnight Feb. 21, 2011, Marc woke up to noise. He went downstairs. “I saw smoke down the steps,� he said. “I looked at my father. He was fan-

ning the ceiling; the plaster was burning. It was an electrical fire. He said he was working on a lamp.� Marc said he told his father to leave the house. His mother had been sleeping. “I heard her say, ‘Marc, Marc.’ She sounded like she was using her walker. Then I heard an explosion,� he said. Marc, who had taken care of his parents for years, said he couldn’t get to his mother, so he was “beating on doors� trying to get someone to call the fire department. He went into the house a few times to try to save his mother, but couldn’t. Everything was a blur, he said. “I said, ‘Get my mom the hell out of there.’� Doris was active in the Coleta United Methodist Church. Milton was a retired insurance adjuster from Chicago.

Funding deal faces election year obstacles Lawmakers likely won’t act on plan SPRINGFIELD (AP) – A bipartisan collection of lawmakers has come together to pitch something not accomplished in years: a change in Illinois’ school funding formula that would narrow the gap between the amount spent on students in richer and poorer school districts. The caveat? It’s an election year, so chances that lawmakers will ultimately act on the plan are in doubt. The proposal, presented by Democrats and Republicans on a Senate education committee this month, would put almost all state education funding into one pot, then require districts to demonstrate need before receiving part of it. The current method factors in a district’s poverty for some types of state aid, but not others, and it treats funding for Chicago schools differently. Backers say it’s time to act on changes, with a tough budget year ahead in which further cuts to school funding are a real possibility. The issue has

support from lawmakers around the state, and there is hope that Chicago officials will embrace the changes in exchange for more stable funding, even though it could mean millions of dollars less for the city’s schools. “We have to get the distribution formula right. What should it focus on, where should our priorities be?� said state Sen. Andy Manar, a Bunker Hill Democrat who co-chaired the committee. Manar says the issue of equity in school funding must be addressed before a conversation about whether schools are adequately funded. During lean times, wealthier districts with more property tax revenue have an advantage over poorer districts, and can more easily offset cuts in state aid. Manar said he plans to introduce legislation based on the bipartisan proposal by March. Still, broad support in the Legislature could be hard to come by in an election year, said Steve Brown, spokesman for House Speaker Michael Madigan, a Chicago Democrat who hasn’t yet committed to support the plan.

Rutherford lodging becomes issue Shared room with subordinate, paying for rooms at issue CHICAGO (AP) – In his pitch to become Illinois governor, state Treasurer Dan Rutherford boasts of his cheap travel and lodging practices as part of a frugal conservatism that will serve taxpayers if he becomes the state’s next chief executive. But a pattern of sharing hotel rooms and a Chicago studio apartment with a subordinate on his government staff has become an issue in the Republican’s primary campaign, raising questions about his adherence to common workplace management practices and the line between government duties and political campaigning. Since taking office in 2011, Rutherford has shared a hotel room with his executive assistant, Joshua Lanning, at least ten nights while traveling on official business. The

two also stayed together dozens of times in the Chicago apartment paid for with campaign funds. The treasurer billed Illinois taxpayers for the hotels, but reimbursed the state last year for five nights after an internal review determined the travel should have been covered by campaign funds. In an Associated Press interview this month, Rutherford said he shared a room with Lanning only twice on state business, but public records and his office later confirmed it happened more often. A state government travel guideline says employees are entitled to their own room during travel, and the practice of sharing lodging with a boss is frowned upon in the business world for possibly placing subordinates in uncomfortable situations. Lanning, 28, of Pontiac, has worked since 2008 for Rutherford, who previously was a state legislator.

T h e sharedroom issue has arisen at the same time Rutherford, 58, Dan is defendRutherford ing himself against a federal lawsuit claiming he sexually harassed a different employee and forced him to do political work on government time. Rutherford has strongly denied both allegations, blaming them on dirty politics in the four-way GOP primary among him, businessman Bruce Rauner and state Sens. Kirk Dillard and Bill Brady. The treasurer accuses Rauner of being behind the lawsuit to sabotage his campaign, a charge Rauner dismisses as “ridiculous.� Earlier this month, the Chicago Sun-Times documented how Rutherford and Lanning traveled together during several foreign trips funded by third parties. The Chicago Tribune

reported this week that Rutherford and Lanning had stayed together at least 50 times at the Chicago apartment while campaigning, which Rutherford’s office later confirmed. The treasurer’s travel practices also were called into question in a recent AP report about his Facebook and Twitter accounts highlighting a mix of government work and political appearances on statepaid trips. The treasurer defends the room-sharing as simply a way to save money, arguing businesses and even professional sports leagues do it. He insists he only does it during travel in expensive places and on campaign business. “Our staffs on the campaign, they share rooms when we travel,� Rutherford told the AP. “Josh has been with me for years on our operation. There’s other businesses where [a] boss and others share.� Lanning did not

respond to several requests by the AP for comment. In a 2012 interview with his hometown paper, the Pontiac Daily Leader, he described his job as doing research for the treasurer, handling constituent requests and frequent travel. He has a young son and spends personal time working on Rutherford campaign activities, he told the paper. A Rutherford spokeswoman said the two men’s relationship is purely professional. An AP review of Rutherford’s travel expenses showed that in a number of instances he billed taxpayers, at least initially, for the joint travel. During his interview with AP, the treasurer’s answers changed when asked how often he’d shared rooms with Lanning: first confirming the practice, then saying it never had been on state business, then citing two trips – to Washington D.C. and New York, where hotel rooms can cost several hundred dollars per night.

WASHINGTON – If you think the U.S. education system is doing its job, here’s a statistic to contemplate: Forty-six percent of Americans believe that humans were created just 6,000 years ago. In other words, the overwhelming scientific evidence in favor of evolution is flat wrong. This alarming, depressing figure comes from the Gallup Poll and hasn’t changed much over the years. In 1982, 44 percent of Americans believed that God created humans in their current form. The number of Republicans who believe in creationism and discount evolution has increased since 2009 from 47 percent to 56 percent. In other words, no monkeys involved. The Bible is literally true. Noah’s Ark was real and saved 7,000 species from drowning. Perhaps you heard about the “debate� the other night between Bill Nye, TV’s Science Guy, and Ken Ham, who founded the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Ky. The museum coins huge amounts of money from tourists eager to see dioramas of human beings and dinosaurs living side by side in perfect harmony. The human being has modern hair and is fully clothed and belted, of course, and is smiling toothily. I think the dinosaur, which looks eerily like the evil velociraptors in “Jurassic Park,� is also smiling. The Nye-Ham encounter wasn’t really a debate because, as Ham said, neither was going to win by changing viewpoints. Ham certainly isn’t open to evolution. “I know that God’s word is true. Nothing he [Nye] says will cast doubt on that,� Ham intoned. Nye reposted that Ham’s no-evolution theory can’t possibly explain why there are now millions of species of flora and fauna. He wondered, for example, how two kangaroos from a boat that ended up in Turkey could have hopped over oceans to land in Australia, leaving no fossils behind. THE ENCOUNTER IS OF little historic note except that school boards all over the country are in real debate over whether creationism should be taught to children. During one of the interminable GOP debates before the 2008 presidential election, the 10 candidates on stage were asked whether they believe in evolution. Three raised their hands indicating they did not: Tom Tancredo, Kansas Gov. Sam

Forty-six percent of Americans refuse to accept that human life evolved from lesser animals in a process that took billions of years.

Finding other vegetarians during meals Group welcomes anyone thinking of making the switch BY EMILY STEELE Herald & Review

DECATUR (AP) – In 1990, when Sue Weinstein wanted to eat out, dinner usually meant a salad and a baked potato. “It’s easier than it used to be,” the 20-year vegetarian-turnedvegan said. “But it’s still pretty tough.” That’s part of the reason she’s a co-organizer for the Decatur Vegetarian Meetup group. Meetup is an online forum where people can form clubs open to anyone and create events for those with similar interests. Last Thursday, the group met at the newly opened Taproot restaurant in downtown Decatur. Weinstein contacted Executive Chef John Redden several weeks before to discuss menu options. Redden saw it as a challenge. “It forces you as a cook to be more creative,” Redden said. With popular documentaries such as “Forks over Knives” and “Food Inc.” increasing public awareness of the food industry and the benefits of eating less processed food, Redden said they often get dietary requests for vegetarian, vegan, or more recently, gluten-free foods. He and his right-hand man, sous chef Paul Maisel, worked to make creative and tasty menu options for the group. “Just because you’re vegan doesn’t mean you have to eat bland food or suffer with your house salad while everyone else at the table eats a steak,”

AP Photo/Herald & Review, Danny Damiani

Kalyn Miller, a server at Taproot Restaurant, takes orders from members of the Decatur Vegetarian Meetup Group during their dinner Jan. 23 in Decatur. The group branched out of the Decatur Vegetarian Society 2 years ago this month. The group welcomes vegetarians and vegans or anyone considering it and has has participants from as far as Springfield or Champaign. Maisel said. “I can’t imagine what’s that would be like on a day-to-day basis.” It’s not as hard as you might think, though. Weinstein became a vegetarian in 1990 out of ethical concerns and went vegan 5 years ago. She enjoys cooking meals at home, especially ones such as Vegan Mac and Cheese, but struggles at restaurants. “It’s so hard for vegans and vegetarians to eat out,” she said. That difficulty in finding tasty veggie meals on a menu inspired the group’s creation. The idea was that, if vegetarians and vegans went as a group, they could get restaurants to put together menu items specifically for them. The idea paid off, as Thursday’s dinner at Taproot had

the largest number of people of any of their meetups, with 21 people filling the private room. “I think everyone wanted to try this restaurant,” Weinstein said. The menu started off with a vegan potato and onion bisque topped with mushrooms and fried asparagus or a salad. Entree choices were spicy Asian grilled lettuce wraps, grilled portabella mushroom with potatoes and spinach or a loaded market salad. Dessert was strawberries with chocolate silk mousse made out of tofu that only a few could resist ordering. Topics of conversation shifted from favorite recipes to seedlings for spring gardens already being planted. Comfortable laughter filled

the room as friends chatted and strangers quickly became acquaintances. That is, until plates were brought out and everyone settled into a meal designed especially for them. The Meetup group branched out of the Decatur Vegetarian Society two years ago this month. The group welcomes vegetarians and vegans or anyone considering it and has participants from as far as Springfield or Champaign. They try to meet once a month at a member’s house or an accommodating restaurant. Julie Rotz is a member of both groups. She became a vegetarian in February 2012 to help in her fight against breast cancer. “I found out after I got diagnosed with breast cancer some of the things I was eating weren’t so good,” Rotz said. Already an avid runner, around that time her daughter became a vegan and encouraged Rotz to read “The China Study,” by T. Colin Campbell. Knowing her body was going to go through a lot with surgery and chemotherapy Rotz decided she wanted to help the process by eating well. “I likened it to the longest marathon ever,” Rotz said about her treatment. She’s now in remission and is still running, but has no plans of returning to a diet that includes meat. “This really is a nutrient dense way to eat, so it has got to be one of the best thing I can do for myself,” Rotz said. Still, she pointed out that it’s possible to have an unhealthy vegetarian diet. “You could eat potato chips and drink Coke and be vegetarian.”

The top question she gets from people is the most obvious one: Do you get enough protein? That was something Rotz considered during the first stages of research. She used a nutritional guide from the American Cancer Society to log her plant-based diet for several days with a surprising result. “I got more than I needed,” Rotz said. After researching the food industry online and through the library, she got involved with the vegetarian society to learn more. She picked up cooking tips, tried new foods at the potlucks and learned from the videos they showed at society meetings. She now has a growing library of vegetarian cook books and has enjoyed trying new fruits and vegetables. “I’m just soaking it up like a sponge,” Rotz said. Taproot’s menu is seasonal. The focus now is on root vegetables and winter comfort foods, which will shift to more spring-like fare in March. Sous chef Maisel made the first and last dish. He and Redden bounced ideas off each other when planning out the menu, conscious of developing “explosions of flavor” for the dinner. For the chocolate dessert, he took the extra step to sweeten it with agave nectar, instead of honey, which is off limits for some vegans. “It’s one of those [dishes] where you could do blind tastings with guests and no one would know,” Maisel said. Redden used Thursday’s dinner as a testing board for vegetarian and vegan items that may turn up on future menus. “Good food is good food, don’t discriminate.”

Girlfriend’s texts to stepfather end relationship Dear Abby, My youngest grown son discovered that his girlfriend – his possible future wife – was texting pictures of herself to his stepfather. Needless to say, he told her the relationship is over. Now, for obvious reasons, he no longer wants to be around his stepfather, and is deeply concerned about how it will affect his relationship with his mother, my ex-wife. They are close, which I encouraged, but she seems to be in denial about the situation. Have you any suggestions on how to be supportive of my son and all the dynamics? – Too Much Drama in Missouri

DEARABBY !BIGAIL6AN "URENS *EANNE 0HILLIPS COLUMN APPEARS DURINGTHE WEEKTHROUGH 5NIVERSAL 0RESS 3YNDICATE

Dear Too Much Drama, You say your ex-wife seems to be in denial. Was the reason for the breakup ever explained to her? If it wasn’t, then your son should talk to his mother about it, and from then on arrange to see her alone. Dear Abby, I just dropped off my

13-year-old son at a party. He’s a seventhgrader, and when I take him to a friend’s house, if I haven’t met the parents, I walk him to the door and introduce him and myself to them. I do this to try and make sure the parents are at home and responsible. (Honestly, if they weren’t, I’d take my son and leave.) I know it embarrasses him, but most parents thank me because they want to meet the parents of the kids who are in their homes. Times are different for our kids today. I just can’t believe that someone would simply drop off a child and speed away when he/she has absolutely no clue who these people are. I’m not

a helicopter parent; I’m just a mother who loves my children enough to make sure they’re in good hands. Recently, a ninth-grader in our school district had a house party where 30 kids received underage drinking citations! Sorry – but I’m taking no chances. Parenting is not being your child’s best friend. Please encourage parents not to be afraid to reach out to other parents. It really does take a village. – Vigilant in Bucks County, Pa. Dear Vigilant, Your children are fortunate to have a mother who is as involved in their lives as you are. Not all young people are so lucky. Your son may find

your vigilance embarrassing, but take comfort in knowing that all kids your son’s age find their parents embarrassing. Orchids to you for pointing out the importance of parents networking with each other to ensure that their children are safe and supervised. When an entire “village� is watching, there is less chance of a lamb straying. Dear Abby, I have been married to my wife for 33 years. I recently found a pair of her panties with “Booty Call� printed across the back. I can’t help but wonder. She has never had underwear like that in 33 years. What gives? – Surprised Texan

Dear Surprised, Was your wife wearing the lingerie at the time? If not, how did you discover the panties? The surest way to get to the bottom of this would be to ask your wife this question. She may have thought they were cute and bought them on impulse – or they may have been a gift. Please let me know, because not only am I interested in her answer, but I’m sure millions of readers are curious, too. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www. DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

Bertrand Piccard from Switzerland and Brian Jones from England were the first to travel nonstop around the world in a balloon. Piccard said, “Very often, human beings are living like on autopilot, reacting automatically with what happens.” Some bridge players count at the table almost without being aware they are doing it. These experts are on autopilot. That is good. There are many more players who are on a different autopilot, following the typical “rules” of the game, which is occasionally not good. In this deal, for example, how should the defenders play to defeat three no-trump after West leads his fourthhighest heart four?

In the auction, I disagree with North’s using Stayman, because his doubleton is so strong. He should just raise to three no-trump. We have all heard of “third

hand high.” And many Easts would not be able to resist using it at trick one, covering dummy’s heart five with the seven – but it is the wrong play. When third hand cannot contribute a nine or higher, he should give count. Here, with an odd number of hearts, he should play the two. Declarer will win with his jack, cross to dummy with a spade to the queen, and run the diamond 10. West, on winning with his king, should cash the heart ace, knowing that declarer will have to drop his king. West will then run his suit for down one. If East plays the heart seven at trick one, West should assume East started with a doubleton and shift to a club, trying to get East on lead for a heart lead through declarer’s king. © 2014 UFS

PANDAS

Seeking help The family visited a doctor shortly after the wide-ranging and inexplicable symptoms started. The pediatrician attributed Kloey’s behaviors to “heightened sensitivity issues� and after occupational therapy evaluations, the Trujillos were told Kloey could be on the spectrum for autism or sensory processing disorder. Kloey kept withdrawing from others, struggled through school days – when she went – and removed her inhibitive clothing the minute she came home, taking comfort in a familiar blanket. Frustrated by vague answers and more physical symptoms complicated by her daughter’s bladder reflux problems, Jaclyn started researching OCD in children, and almost by accident, she stumbled upon something that finally seemed to connect all the dots. “I was reading a Parents magazine story about something called PANDAS,� she said, “and it finally explained everything we were going through, so I just kept researching it.� In Hinsdale, the Trujillos found one of the few doctors nationwide who treats PANDAS. “He was certain she had PANDAS,� Jaclyn said. “If I wouldn’t have done my own research and kept pushing, I still wouldn’t know what’s wrong with my daughter.� Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorder Associated with Streptococcal Infections, or PANDAS, is a rare disease. It usually occurs in young children from a strep infection that is

employer, Sterling Steel, but most treatments for the disease are not covered by the insurance industry at large. It is not officially recognized as a disease by the entities that guide the insurance companies. “We have flex spending, too, and they don’t even take that,� Jaclyn said. “PANDAS is not in the book of diagnosed diseases.� The most promising treatment for severe cases of PANDAS is intra-

venous immunoglobulin treatment, or IVIG. Plasma from many individuals must be mixed and purified before it is administered to boost a compromised immune system. Each treatment costs about $10,000, and because it is considered experimental for PANDAS, is not covered by insurance. The Trujillos hope Kloey will need only one plasma treatment. They are waiting until next fall to have it because doctors have seen better outcomes after age 6. A benefit has been planned to help the family pay for the IVIG procedure. A vendor and craft show is planned from 1 to 4 p.m. Feb. 23 at Cochran’s Pub in Sterling. Nearly 40 vendors have been booked for the event. Matt “Cat Matt� Jones will even be there to raffle off fishing equipment. There will also be several other raffles and auctions.

Wednesday was one of the first days Kloey has been able to go school recently. thought to trigger OCD, tic, and other neuropsychiatric disorders. It isn’t caused by the infection directly, but by the body’s response to strep. PANDAS experts, of which there are few, believe it is an autoimmune disease that continually interferes with the basal ganglia, the part of the brain that controls movement and behavior. Without treatment, physical and emotion symptoms get progressively worse. Many researchers compare it to another autoimmune disorder, rheumatic fever.

Support for families Unawareness of PANDAS, and the emotional and financial roller coaster that is the disease, puts tremendous strain on families. That’s why Wendy Nawara of Naperville started the PANDAS/ PITAND/PANS Advocacy and Support group, the only official organization of its kind in Illinois. Although members are spread out geographically,

daily support is available through a Facebook page. She also puts together periodic face-to-face meetings and encourages parents to branch off into smaller groups. “They call it a rare disease, but it really isn’t,� Nawara said. “I think we will see a lot more of it when awareness is increased and we get better at diagnosing it.� Nawara knows all too well the toll PANDAS takes on families. She has three children who have been treated by the same Hinsdale doctor. She said the doubt about the disease that lingers in the medical community increases the stress. “These symptoms are downright scary,� Nawara said. “Many of these kids are being misdiagnosed, and parents are having to do so much research. “You want to be a good patient and do what the doctor says, but there comes a time when doctors need to start listening to parents.�

Nawara, like many PANDAS parents, also had to deal with dismissive attitudes from many doctors along the way. “My first doctor said it was sensory sensitivity,� Nawara said. “That doctor told me, ‘She’ll outgrow it; you need to be firmer and set better limits.’ Families are dejected by doctors, schools, and many have lost contact with their friends.� The group started with two members, and now has nearly 200. She is now approving two to 10 new families a week on Facebook. Nawara now sees her struggles as a calling. “I was a social worker and sibling of someone with multiple disabilities,� Nawara said. “I knew I wanted to work with families like this, and looking back, I think everything happened the way it was supposed to.�

Bombing in Sinai kills three South Koreans Almost all 33 passengers on bus wounded

AP

Aisa Achmizov, director of the local folk art museum, shows off traditional smoked cheese made by his Circassian tribe in the village of Bolshoi Kichmai, Russia. Circassians are a Muslim ethnic group who live in villages sprinkled through the Sochi region, just a few dozen miles from where the Winter Olympic games are being played out in gleaming arenas.

Olympics divide Sochi’s indigenous Circassians Ethnic group was mostly ignored in run-up to games BOLSHOI KICHMAI, Russia (AP) – While Vladimir Putin and rich Olympic sponsors watch the Winter Games in gleaming arenas, boys in nearby Bolshoi Kichmai herd their goats by tying them to rickety bicycles, riding against the wind through a rocky valley where invading Russian armies slaughtered their ancestors 150 years ago. These Circassian boys, their families and neighbors are the real hosts of the Sochi Olympics. Circassians, a Muslim ethnic group native to these lush lands that Putin chose for his hegemonic Olympic project, were massacred and exiled by czarist troops, persecuted under Stalin and largely ignored in the run-up to the Sochi Games. Members of the Circassian diaspora from New Jersey to Turkey and Israel have protested, arguing that Olympic skiing and other events are being staged on the blood of their forebears. But Circassians who still live in villages sprinkled through the Sochi region are loath to put up a fuss. The people of Bolshoi Kichmai worry more about securing a longawaited gas pipeline and paved roads than righting historical wrongs. And they fear that confronting powerful Russian author-

ities could invite new discrimination against a long-powerless minority. “We don’t need to throw stones at the past; we need to look forward,” said Aisa Achmizov, who runs the small folk art museum in Bolshoi Kichmai, which he hopes will bring in more visitors thanks to the Olympics. “You have to know the history of your country. But I don’t want to say too much.” Russia’s most prominent terrorist, Doku Umarov, made matters worse by adopting the Circassians’ cause. In a warning last year, the Chechen rebel leader urged Muslim extremists to target the Games. Circassians insist they are peaceful and have nothing to do with Umarov’s threat. But it has made the villagers of Bolshoi Kichmai even more wary of speaking out. Activists say Umarov’s threat has provided Russian security services a pretext to increase document checks and pressure on women in headscarves and men with long beards across the Caucasus. The Circassians are one piece in a patchwork of more than 100 ethnic groups across the Caucasus whose warrior traditions and resistance to outside rule loom large in Russia’s history and collective consciousness. The people of Bolshoi Kichmai are from one of several Circassian groups, the Shapsug. That diversity contributes to Russia’s cultural wealth – and has posed

challenges to Russian rulers ever since they brought the soaring peaks and seashores of the Caucasus region under the imperial yoke. The conquest ended in the 1860s after decades of scorched-earth warfare, mass killings and expulsions that some label genocide. The Circassians surrendered in 1864 in the city of Sochi, and exiled Circassians scattered across the Caucasus and around the world. Today, Circassians in New Jersey have a tightknit community whose congressional representative defends their interests. Circassians in Jordan are among the country’s elite. Circassians in Bolshoi Kichmai, by contrast, struggle to get by on tourism in a town with few amenities, just a few dozen kilometers from Olympic events but a world away from their glory. The toilet at the folk art museum is an outhouse with a hole in the floor. Firewood is the primary fuel for many families. Grandparents fight a losing battle to ensure that the goat-herding boys and other village children speak their native dialect. And well water is running dry, after a company building railroads for the Olympic project hauled away huge amounts of gravel from the Shakhe river, disrupting its flow through town. Residents filed a lawsuit against the company, but are still waiting for results.

CAIRO (AP) – An explosion ripped through a tourist bus near a border crossing between Egypt and Israel on Sunday, killing at least three South Koreans and the Egyptian driver in an attack that stoked fears Sinai militants have resumed a bloody campaign against tourists. The targeting of foreign tourists was the first to take place in the southern part of the Sinai Peninsula in nearly a decade, when a massive bomb devastated a luxury hotel in Taba, killing 34 people, mostly foreign tourists. At least 11 of those killed were Israelis. The 2004 attack was followed by suicide bombings at Sharm elSheik in July 2005 and the smaller Red Sea resort of Dahab the following year. Combined, the three attacks killed about 120 people. In contrast, the restive northern part of Sinai has for years witnessed attacks on security forces blamed on disgruntled local Bedouin residents. However, a fledgling insurgency by militants, some with al-Qaida links, emerged after the ouster

in July of Egypt’s Islamist president, Mohammed Morsi. The 2004-06 attacks in Sinai were the worst to target foreign tourists since the 1997 Luxor massacre, when gunmen opened fire at the Temple of Hatshepsut on the city’s west bank of the River Nile, killing 58 tourists and four Egyptians. No claim of responsibility has been made for the latest Taba bombing, which bore the hallmarks of attacks blamed on the al-Qaida-linked militant groups battling the army and security forces in Sinai’s restive north. The security officials said the source of the explosion was not clear, but they believe it was either a car bomb or a roadside bomb that was detonated by remote control. Rescue workers found three bodies at the scene of the attack and the badly burnt remains of one or possibly two other people, said Khaled Abu Hashem, the head of ambulance services in southern Sinai. Almost all 33 passengers on the bus were wounded by the explosion, with 12 suffering serious injuries. The wounded were being treated in hospitals in Taba and the coastal resort towns of Nuweiba and Sharm al-Sheikh

to the south on the Red Sea’s Gulf of Suez. In Seoul, the foreign ministry said in a text message that 31 passengers were from a church in Jincheon, in the country’s Choongbuk Province, being led by a South Korean tour guide. Only two of its nationals were found dead and nine were injured, the ministry added. Such discrepancies in death tolls often occur in the initial stages of an emergency response. The Egyptian security officials said the bus had arrived at the Taba crossing from the ancient Greek Orthodox monastery of St. Catherine’s in central Sinai. The journey, they said, originated in Cairo, Egypt’s capital. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity, because they were not authorized to speak to the media. Egypt’s vital tourism sector has been badly hit by the deadly turmoil roiling the country since the 2011 revolt that deposed longtime ruler Hosni Mubarak. Sunday’s attack came as signs of a slow recovery in tourism were emerging, with the focus of the rebound on Red Sea resorts in Sinai and the mainland rather on Cairo, often the scene of some of the deadliest unrest.

Three’s a good Snow leads small-school contingent to state crowd BY BRIAN WEIDMAN bweidman@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 551

Two Warriors, one Duke advance

BYRON – While snow was falling outside on Saturday night, Snow was rising up inside Byron High School. Newman senior Jake Snow, along with teammate and fellow sectional champion Bryce Ivey, will lead a contingent of 10 area wrestlers who survived the meat grinder that is the Class 1A Byron Sectional. Their next stop will be the state tournament, which begins Thursday at State Farm Center in Champaign. Leading the way is Snow, who began his high school career with a state title in 2011 at 112 pounds. He hopes to conclude it with a title at 145, and took a step in that direction by capturing his second sectional title. In the finals, he rolled to a 12-3 decision against Dakota’s Greg Krulas. The key sequence was at the end of second period, when Snow (36-1) scored a takedown and 3-point nearfall to seize a 7-2 lead.

By SVM Sports Staff

Dixon’s Kylian Lally will make a return trip to state, while Sterling’s Bryant Lilly and Jaden Urrutia will make their first appearances at the state tournament. The trio advanced out of the Class 2A Pontiac Sectional on Saturday. Kylian Urrutia was Lally the runnerDixon senior up at 113 pounds. Lilly took third at 220 and Lally fourth at 145. Urrutia (21-5), a sophomore, dropped a 6-3 decision to Washington’s Ethan Reel (40-5) in the 113-pound title tilt. A veteran of IESA and fresh-soph state meets, Urrutia is thrilled to be making his first trip to state as a varsity competitor. “It’s definitely a lot bigger deal,” said Urrutia, whose been to four IESA state tourneys and one fresh-soph state tourney.

Milledgeville’s Zach Herin (34) drives around the defense of Polo’s Brian Cavanaugh during the teams’ NUIC East game Saturday night in Polo. The Missiles won 46-45 to complete the season sweep in the rivalry.

SPORTS inside

POLO – No one should be surprised the Milledgeville-Polo boys basketball game came down to the final possession, or that the final margin was a mere one point. The surprising part Saturday night in Polo was how low-scoring the nipand-tuck affair turned out to be. In a game filled with runs by both teams, the Missiles downed the Marcos 46-45. Free throws made all the difference down the stretch … but only because both teams missed all of them. After the Marcos (20-7, 7-4) rallied from a five-point deficit in the final min-

Star of the game: AJ Dollmeyer, Polo, 17 points, 16 rebounds Up next: Durand at Milledgeville & South Beloit at Polo, both 7:30 p.m. Tuesday ute thanks to the Missiles (19-4, 8-3) missing the front end of three oneand-one opportunities, Polo senior AJ Dollmeyer had two free throws with no time left on the clock and his team down one. With the lane cleared out and the players, coaches and crowd holding its breath, Dollmeyer’s two attempts

rattled out to give Milledgeville the season sweep over the rival Marcos. “It was just a huge sigh of relief, because we basically gave them the chance to win it,” Milledgeville senior Caleb Skoog said. “We missed some key free throws when we really had to have them, and we were fortunate that we’re leaving here with the win.” A quarter earlier, it didn’t look like the game would come down to the wire. After Polo opened the second half with a 9-0 run to take a 30-29 lead – its first since 2-0 in the opening minute – the Missiles closed the third quarter with a 10-0 run of their own.

Two misses should not a memory make TYREYNOLDS 3PORTS REPORTER (ECANBE REACHEDAT TREYNOLDS SAUKVALLEY COMOR   EXT

Michael Krabbenhoeft/mkrabbenhoeft@saukvalley.com

Poloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s AJ Dollmeyer shoots over the Milledgeville defense during their NUIC East rivalry game Saturday night in Polo. Dollmeyer missed two free throws with no time on the clock in the Marcosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 46-45 loss, but his double-double was a big reason why Polo was in that situation to begin with. hugs with the big fella after Poloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brief trip to the locker room, or the Milledgeville fans talking amongst themselves that they felt bad for the guy who failed to come through in the end and beat their team. s!ND MOSTESPECIALLY the composure, poise and maturity Dollmeyer showed as he stopped to answer the standard â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and maybe rather mundane â&#x20AC;&#x201C; questions from this newspaper reporter, whose job it was to make him rehash those painful moments still fresh as an open wound in order to write this column. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It sucks â&#x20AC;Ś it just sucks,â&#x20AC;? Dollmeyer said, shaking his head, his thoughts far away in time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had it right there, right where we wanted it, and I blew it.â&#x20AC;? Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just put a stop to that noise right now, because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just not being fair to himself. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no way Dollmeyer should feel like he cost his team the game. In fact, the Marcos wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have even been close to that situation if not for his hard work on the offensive glass, most of which

turned into points on his putbacks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can pick anything from that game and say it cost us,â&#x20AC;? Polo coach Matt Messer said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;even the most harmless turnover in the first quarter that cost us a possession. He and the rest of the guys had worked so hard to get to that point, and unfortunately, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what it came down to at the very end. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we win as a team and lose as a team, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no way AJ should think this is all on him.â&#x20AC;? It had to be a lonely feeling, standing at the free-throw line of an empty lane with no time on the clock, all of your teammates and opposing players standing back near halfcourt, out of sight. Even Messer couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bring himself to stand in Dollmeyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s peripheral vision, instead backing up as far as he could and still stay in the coaches box on the sideline to his star centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right. Then, with a couple of bounces off the left side of the rim, both free throws popped up and fell away from the cylinder, closing out Poloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Senior Night on a sour

note. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just really a tough way to win,â&#x20AC;? Milledgeville senior Caleb Skoog said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I definitely wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be in that position. I mean, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not complaining, because we won â&#x20AC;Ś but you still feel bad for the other guy.â&#x20AC;? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the respect that both coaches talked about afterward, the respect they have for their counterparts and the programs theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve built just 11.8 miles apart. The ups and downs Messer and Brian Rahn have seen through the years, the proximity of their schools meaning a closeness between the players who grow up together, the â&#x20AC;&#x153;friendlyâ&#x20AC;? adverb that both of them put before â&#x20AC;&#x153;rivalryâ&#x20AC;? in this longtime feud. In the end, one team won and the other lost, which happens at every game everywhere. But the way this one happened, it may have brought two already close towns, schools and teams even closer together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your heart goes out to AJ, it really does,â&#x20AC;? Rahn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He played great all game, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a great player for them for the last 3 years, and he gave it his all on his Senior Night â&#x20AC;Ś and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what ends up happening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You really feel for him, you feel his hurt a little bit, and I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what makes this such a great, respectful, friendly rivalry.â&#x20AC;?

Back-and-forth affair goes to Milledgeville DEFENSE CONTINUED FROM B1 The run was capped by Jordan Harrisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hanger in the lane with 1.2 seconds left, for a 39-30 lead heading into the final 8 minutes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a game of runs, and we had the last one,â&#x20AC;? Dollmeyer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t finish it off. We gave them two big runs, and made two big comebacks, but we just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t capitalize on their missed free throws.â&#x20AC;? Austin Webbâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3-pointer and Dollmeyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s putback to open the fourth quarter cut the Polo deficit to 39-35, then Skoog hit a 3 and Harris went coast-to-coast off a steal for a 44-35 Missile lead. After a free throw and a post bucket by Wyatt Patterson, Dollmeyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s putback got the Marcos within 44-40, before DawTyne found Zach Herin wide open under the basket for a 46-40 Milledgeville lead with 3:09 to play. But those were the last points the Missiles scored, and Dollmeyer split a pair of free throws

olo â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too bad, really, that only one memory will likely last from Saturday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Milledgeville vs. Polo boys basketball game. It wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be Milledgevilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2-for-20 shooting from 3-point range, or Poloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 42-23 rebounding advantage, or even the runs of 16-5 (Milledgeville in the first quarter), 9-0 (Polo to start the third quarter) or 10-0 (Milledgeville to end the third). No, the lasting image that will stick in the minds of the players, coaches and a gym full of fans from the latest installment of this longstanding rivalry will be of AJ Dollmeyer â&#x20AC;Ś and not of his stat-sheet-stuffing double-double of 17 points and 16 rebounds. It will be the 6-foot-7 senior squatting down at the free-throw line, head in his hands, in emotional agony, after missing two free throws with the clock reading :00.0 that would have erased the Missilesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 46-45 lead and given Dollmeyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Marcos a one-point victory. And that is really, truly a crying shame. Because hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what a lot of people maybe didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see: s$OLLMEYERSTEAMmates and coaches â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in particular, assistant Matt Scholl, who himself missed two free throws at the end of a game that would have beaten Milledgeville when he was a Polo player â&#x20AC;&#x201C; consoling the biggest guy on the court. s4HE-ILLEDGEVILLE playersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pats on Dollmeyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shoulder as he went through the handshake line, less celebrating the win than respectfully taking the victory and showing compassion for a fellow player put in a tough spot. s4HE0OLOFANSSHARING

with 2:39 to go to make it 46-41 and set up the wild final minute. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Neither team shot like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re capable of, but both teams put themselves in position to win,â&#x20AC;? Polo coach Mike Messer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was some pretty good defense out there tonight on both sides, and both teams just battled and battled to the very end.â&#x20AC;? The final play to set up Dollmeyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fateful free throws came with 1.2 seconds left, after the Missilesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; third missed front-end free throw came with 9.4 seconds left. Patterson pulled down the rebound and Polo pushed it up the court and called timeout. With the ball on the left sideline in the front court, Polo drew up a lob play to Dollmeyer going to the basket. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We drew up the play we wanted, and we stuck with it even after Milledgeville called the timeout after our timeout,â&#x20AC;? Dollmeyer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They threw the ball up to me, and my shot got blocked, but they also got me with the body.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew what they were going to do,â&#x20AC;?

Milledgeville coach Brian Rahn said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I apologized to my team for having the wrong guy on Dollmeyer. It was totally my fault, but the guys just found a way to overcome it.â&#x20AC;? Finding a way to win was the theme for the Missiles on this night. They were outrebounded 42-23, outscored 16-8 in second-chance points, shot just nine free throws and made only two, and were without one of their major offensive weapons thanks to a dismal 2-for20 performance from 3-point range. Yet with all that going against them, the Missiles managed to pull it out thanks to winning more 50-50 plays, as well as turning 12 steals and 19 Polo turnovers into a 16-6 edge in fastbreak points. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The defenses were very good tonight, and neither offense really got into a rhythm,â&#x20AC;? Skoog said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big boost to our confidence when we can do all the little things, get all those hustle plays, and basically win a game while not shooting great at all.â&#x20AC;? Skoogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 15 points and seven rebounds paced

Milledgeville, and he also dished three assists. Blake Kappes scored 11 points, Harris added nine points and four steals, and DawTyne finished with seven points, six assists, five rebounds and four steals. Dollmeyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doubledouble consisted of 17 points and 16 rebounds, and he also had two assists, two steals and two blocks. Brian Cavanaugh scored 13 points and dished three assists, and Patterson chipped in seven points and nine rebounds. The game could be a potential preview of the 1A Forreston Regional final in 2 weeks, as the Missiles are the top seed and the Marcos are the third seed. Polo would have to beat Pearl City and, more than likely Aquin, to reach the title tilt, while the Missiles would have win a semifinal game against the winner of the EastlandForreston quarterfinal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We came out with a lot of energy and effort tonight,â&#x20AC;? Dollmeyer said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and if we can play that same way next week, hopefully we can pull it off and get a little revenge.â&#x20AC;?

Here are some highlights from Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s action at the Sochi Olympics: FOR THE DUTCH, THE SWEEP 16 The Dutch got their third sweep in speedskating â&#x20AC;&#x201C; albeit a gold by Jorien ter Mors over favorite Ireen Wust in the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1,500. Lottevan Beek got the bronze. The Dutch have now won 16 speedskating medals in Sochi, breaking the record haul of 13 by East Germany at the 1988 Calgary Olympics. The win by ter Mors sets her up for a shot at becoming the first skater to win medials in both long and short track. NORWAY IS SUPER. GEE. Kjetil Jansrud won the fourth straight Olympic super-G gold medal for Norway, finishing the choppy course in 1 minute, 18.14 seconds, with American skier Andrew Weibrecht 0.30 seconds behind. Bode Miller, at age 36, became the oldest Alpine skier to win a medal when he and Jan Hudec of Canada tied for bronze. It was Millerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sixth Olympic medal, moving the American two behind all-time Alpine leader Kjetil Andre Aamodt.

Dixonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Katlyn Bay rolled a 1,292 six-game series to place third overall at the Freeport Sectional on Saturday, and earn a trip to the girls state bowling tournament.

She followed that with games of 179, 224 and 224 again in the second round to advance to the state tourney, beginning Friday at the Cherry Bowl in Rockford. Five other locals failed to advance. Dixonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Emily Quaco rolled an 1,199. Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sectional-qualfying tandem of Destinee Howard and Magan Tintori had scores of 1,158 and 1,057, respectively.

SHOOTOUT AT THE BOLSHOY CORRAL A day after a tough shootout loss to the United States, Russia bounced back against Slovakia, thanks to Alexander Radulov and Ilya Kovalchuk. Another boisterous sellout crowd at Bolshoy Ice Dome grew increasingly nervous throughout the scoreless game, but the Russian stars delivered in the shootout. The United States, meanwhile, easily handled Slovenia, winning 5-1 behind Phil Kesselâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hat trick. SWEDEN GOLDEN AGAIN Sweden successfully defended its Olympic title in the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 4x10-kilometer cross-country relay to become the first country in 42 years to win both menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team events in the same Winter Games. Russia took silver as President Vladimir Putin looked on, and France was third. COURSE DANGER Barely 24 hours after Russian skicross racer Maria Komissarova severely injured her spine while training on the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park, Jackie Hernandez sustained a concussion when she smacked her head after catching an edge during qualifying for snowboardcross.

Cal Jarrett poured in 23 points to lead the Dukes to a Northern Illinois Big 12 West road win. Kyle LeBlanc added 10 points for Dixon (19-4, 7-1), which trailed 16-8 after one quarter. The Dukes outscored Streator (7-15, 1-7) 40-17 the rest of the way.

In that loss, a fifth-straight at State Farm Center, he scored only two points on 1-for-7 shooting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He needs to play better,â&#x20AC;? Groce said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play real well. Joe knows that. He can play better. He has played better. He needs to take care of the ball better. That [small] margin for error, we need everybody. He wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only one, but I think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be the first to tell you he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay quite as well as heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capable.â&#x20AC;? Groce is right. Bertrand isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only one. In an effort to reward improvement of freshmen and inject life into an oth-

erwise limp lineup, Groce moved Malcolm Hill and Kendrick Nunn into starting roles as Bertrand and fellow senior Jon Ekey came off the bench. Ekey, averaging 7.4 points a game, is 3 of 15 shooting in the last three games, including a 0-for5 shooting effort against Ohio State. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 0-for-6 on 3-pointers in the last two games. Oddly, Ekeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s struggles have been highlighted by a multitude of missed tipped dunks this season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tipped dunks, a couple threes,â&#x20AC;? Groce said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m more interested in the quality of the possessions because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you can control. You try to do the best job to put him in position. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take a look at it and see if thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ways we can help.â&#x20AC;?

Sterling grad struggling in new role A glance at Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; statistic sheet would reveal an efficient and productive player in senior Joseph Bertrand. He leads the team among players who record significant minutes with 48.5 percent shooting, which is something for a team that has shot a league-worst 37.4 percent in Big Ten play. But in the three games since Bertrand moved to the role as a first-offthe-bench player from a 23-game starter this season, he appears as if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually moved further from the bench. In games at Penn State, at Nebraska and against Ohio State, he has shot a combined 3-for-15 and scored just seven points, averaging 14.7 minutes per game. Bertrand was responsible for four turnovers in Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 48-39 loss to Ohio State, the Illiniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

a scoreless first period, White won the coin toss for the second period and chose down. He escaped right away to score what turned out to be the only point of the bout. Newburgh was in the down position for the third period, but was unable to escape for the tying point. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really need to get moving on bottom, and work harder, I guess,â&#x20AC;? Newburgh said. Newburgh (31-9) had qualified for sectional as a sophomore and a junior, but will now be making his first trip to state. He secured that by taking a 3-1 overtime decision against Orionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Noah Bridgewater in the semifinals. Newburgh scored a takedown with 7 seconds remaining in OT to win it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s awesome just to qualify, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all I really wanted,â&#x20AC;?

The top four finishers in each weight class move on, and seven other area wrestlers each punched

their tickets to state. Earning third-place finishes were Poloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ethan Cain and Erie-Prophetstownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nick Williams. Cain (35-5) gained a 3-0 decision against Morrisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Austin Keller (3713) in the 160-pound third-place bout, while Williams (31-7) was a 3-1 winner against Mooseheartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Joe Feemorlu at 170 pounds. Fourth-place finishers included Newmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Elias Edmondson (34-19) at 138 pounds, Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dominic Marchetti (2814) at 145, Morrisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Austin Shoup (27-7) at 182, and Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tyler Blume (26-14) at 195. Coming up one bout short of competing for third place and a state tournament berth were West Carrollâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Paawan Dandona (113), Jeff Casey (126), Devon Saunders (160) and Brandon Anderson (285); Erie-Prophetstownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grady Todd (132) and Josh Wheeler (138); Morrisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Joe Eads (106); Oregonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Corey Grady (138);Amboyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jason Bontz (152); Newmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brandon Ahlgrim (152); and Poloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jacob Cain (195).

PERFECT

He executed a textbook cradle, and only the second-period buzzer prevented a likely pin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A cradle takes a lot of arm strength out of you,â&#x20AC;? Snow said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hard move to get, but if you learn the technique that [assistant] coach [Brock] Rude taught us â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he taught us to pick him up and then drop him, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what I did â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it ended up working out well. I almost got that pin at the end of the second period.â&#x20AC;? The major decision was actually Snowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s closest bout. He won by pin in the quarterfinals and technical fall in the semifinals. Ivey survived a pair of close decisions in his first two bouts, then drew Byronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Danny Falconer in the finals. Ivey broke a 2-2 tie with an escape midway through the second period, then scored another one with 30 seconds remaining in the third period to take a 6-2 decision. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to give away all of my secrets,â&#x20AC;? Ivey said, when asked about his penchant for getting reversals, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always part of the plan. To be a great wrestler, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always told you have to escape from great wrestlers. To get an escape or a reversal, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just hang out on bottom all period. That definitely boosted my confidence, knowing I could do that.â&#x20AC;? It is the first sectional title for Ivey (35-1), who placed third at the Oregon Sectional a year ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They both wrestled extremely well today,â&#x20AC;? Newman coach Steve Davis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jake, he can still open up some more. Bryce, he was extremely smart in his match. He just doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make too many mistakes, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s able to stay on top.â&#x20AC;? Coming up just short in his quest for a title was Rock Fallsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Lucas Newburgh, who dropped a 1-0 decision to Riverdaleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Terry White in the 195-pound finals. After

1-0 in his third-place match. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to go up to 220, and it paid off,â&#x20AC;? Lilly said. Bryant â&#x20AC;&#x153;We made a Lilly great move. 3TERLING SENIOR All the work, and all the years Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve put in, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paying off.â&#x20AC;? Lally (32-6), a senior, was left wanting more

than his fourth-place finish. He dropped an 8-5 decision to Pontiacâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vaughn Hobart in his third-place bout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could have done better, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll come back next week and get it,â&#x20AC;? Lally said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Overall, I think I did all right. Hopefully Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get everything worked out before state. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m definitely confident. I feel like I can place. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m shooting for top three.â&#x20AC;?

NEW ORLEANS â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Eastern Conference finally stopped Kevin Durant and Blake Griffin â&#x20AC;&#x201C; then stopped its losing streak at the NBA All-Star game. Kyrie Irving had 31 points and 14 assists and was voted the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s MVP, Carmelo Anthony made an All-Star record eight 3-pointers and scored 30 points, and the East rallied for a 163155 win over the West on Sunday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great honor,â&#x20AC;? Irving said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a few MVPs. Everyone out here today is an MVP.â&#x20AC;?

East scored the final 10 points to pull out a game it trailed by 18. Irving scored 15 points in the fourth quarter, as the East ended a threegame losing streak. LeBron James had 22 points, seven rebounds and seven assists. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The superstars of our league were just telling us to compete on every play,â&#x20AC;?

But the West was shut out after Durantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3-pointer gave it a 155-153 lead with 1:59 left. Indianaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Paul George made three free throws, Anthony nailed his final 3-pointer, and James scored to make it 161-155. George closed it out with two more free throws.

CHILD CARE

NO INDIVIDUAL, unless licensed or holding a permit as a childcare facility, may cause to be published any advertisement soliciting a child care service.* A childcare facility that is licensed or operating under a permit issued by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services may publish advertisements of the services for which it is specifically licensed or issued a permit. Sauk Valley Media strongly urges any parent or guardian to verify the validity of the license of any facility before placing a child in it's care. *Family homes that care for no more than three (3) children under the age of twelve or which receive only children from a single household, for less than 24 hours per day, are exempt from licensure as day care homes. The three children to whom this exemption applies includes the family's natural or adopted children and any other persons under the age of 12 whether related or unrelated to the operator of the day care home. (DCFS Rule, Part 377.3 (c))

Your goals are within reach. With concentration and dedication, the hopes and dreams you have been harboring for so long can be realized. Voice your opinions with confidence. If you maintain your focus and determination, this will prove to be a great year for you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -Put your abilities in the spotlight. Demonstrate your skills to those in a position to help you advance. Seizing an opportunity will give you a chance to improve your financial situation. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- You have been craving companionship. Enjoy a little romance or devote time to someone you think is special. Memories will help you choose the right path.

815-625-9600 Plus tax, title, license, & doc fee. **0 Down, 72 months @

*

ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Business meetings and professional functions will play an important role today. By conveying helpful suggestions to your superiors, you will encourage your advancement and gain the chance to explore new challenges. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -Show your family how much you care. A trip or time spent word toward the same domestic

goal will create strong new bonds and strengthen old ones. Your efforts and concerns will be appreciated. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Social engagements and other group gatherings should be avoided. You will be hypersensitive to the opinions of others. Rather than risk hurt feelings, treat yourself to some peace and quiet. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Don’t be tempted to divulge personal information, even if those around you are curious about your private life. If you let something slip, you’ll jeopardize an important relationship. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- One way to increase your status is to make yourself visible in a charitable organization. Support a worthy cause or improve your networking skills to attract the attention of someone influential. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- If you’re feeling bored and restless, now would be an ideal time to contact some of your old friends. You may decide to change your routine by attending a sports event, concert or reunion.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -People you live or deal with daily will be frustrating. Airing your opinions will only make matters worse. Distance yourself from the situation and spend time doing something that makes you happy. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Your charisma, charm and personality will generate positive attention. Newfound friends will brighten your life, not to mention your personal prospects. Plan to have some fun.

PUZZLE ENTHUSIASTS: Get more puzzles in “Random House Crossword MegaOmnious” Vols. 1 & 2

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Don’t try to persuade others to your way of thinking. They will not be receptive to your comments, and you could end up causing an argument. Keep your opinions to yourself. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Set aside your worries for today, and get involved in a pleasurable pastime. Participate in some fun and games with family members or friends who enjoy pursuits similar to yours.
