WHITESIDE COUNTY

‘No-nonsense’ Arduini dies Former chairman was longest-tenured county board member in Illinois BY DAVID GIULIANI AND PAM EGGEMEIER news@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 501

ROCK FALLS – In late 2012, Tony Arduini stepped down as the longtime Whiteside County Board chairman, but he couldn’t leave county government entirely. It was his life.

Arduini, 92, died Tuesday in his Rock Falls home. He served nearly a half-century on the County Board – more than two decades as its chairman. The loyal Democrat hadn’t attended a board meeting in months, although he showed up for some committee sessions.

“He was a man with a big heart and a good sense of humor,” member Bill McGinn, D-Sterling, said in an interview. “He was a legend in the county. He’ll be missed by Democrats and Republicans.” In recent years, Arduini was hospitalized a number of times, but he stayed on top of county business.

In 2012, he decided to run again for his Rock Falls seat, but privately told others that he would step down as chairman. Shortly after his re-election, he announced his intentions publicly. ARDUINI CONTINUED ON A4

Schaffer spent the day learning to snowboard with Jason Donna (right), 3, and Jason’s father, Tyler. The chances for the youngsters to keep honing their skills seem limitless. For instance, snow was predicted overnight, and the Sauk Valley forecast calls for more than an inch of snow to blanket the earth by tonight.

Dixon Detective Sgt. Matt Richards testified that Landwer “reached into the passenger seat ... [and was] dragged about 20 feet ... at that point, she falls and hits her head on the pavement.� Three women related to Landwer also took the stand to offer victim impact statements. After the victim’s grandmother, Hilda Landwer, testified, Kimberly’s mother, Sonya Cover, took the stand. In addition to talking about the grief her family had faced, she spoke about her son, Mike, and the close bond he and his sister had. The Landwer family and the Shomaker family had been close, she said, and Mike had been friends with Keith. “Mike has lost not only his sister, but his best friend,� their mother said. “She was energetic, creative, artistic, and very loving and caring.� Cover talked about the victim’s young children: her daughter, whose sixth birthday was the day after the accident, and her son, who was 6 months old at the time. “Life is precious. ... It is here, and then gone in an instant,� she said.

The victim’s aunt, Clara Harris, told the court, “Justice for Kim and her children is all we ask.� From January 2013 until June 2013, Shomaker faced charges of theft, criminal damage to property, burglary, and then reckless homicide. State’s Attorney Anna Sacco-Miller said he had twice failed drug tests while free on bond: once for THC, and once for opiates. Just last month, while still out on bond, Shomaker was charged with unlawful possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance. Authorities say he sold less than 1 gram of heroin to a confidential informant for police. Sacco-Miller asked that his history with drugs and crime be taken into account in determining his sentence. Shomaker’s mother, Chris Lane, pleaded for mercy for her son. “I know he has done wrong,� she said. “My son is not a bad child. He has made very, very poor decisions due to a drug addiction. “I feel sending my son to prison is not going to solve anything for a drug addiction. ... My son didn’t mean for anything to happen that day – the drugs had taken over.

[the Landwers] were like a second family to me. ... I will continue to pray and keep faith that maybe one day, they will forgive me.� His attorney, public defender Bob Thompson, said Shomaker would best be served with a sentence of probation so he could receive proper treatment. “The easy way out is prison, your honor,� Thompson said, arguing that Shomaker was likely to spend only 17 months in prison, even if given the maximum sentence. The sentence will be pronounced in Lee County Court at 9 a.m. today.

Shomaker himself took the stand to offer a statement to the victim’s family. “I have been trying to write this letter for the past 6 months,� he said. “I have so much shame. At such a young age, I didn’t realize the impact I have caused your family.

ROCK FALLS | TEEN DIES IN SHOOTING

State police: Shooting circumstances ‘different’ Agency explains inquiry’s secrecy in death of 15-year-old BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 525

ROCK FALLS – State police aren’t treating the investigation into the death of a 15-yearold at a state trooper’s house any differently from others, a spokeswoman insisted Tuesday. The agency has been keeping much of the information about the case under wraps, including the name of the trooper and the youth who fired the weapon. The victim was Matt Anderson, 15, a freshman at Rock Falls High School. Preliminary results of the investigation show that the shooting was an accident, said Monique Bond, the state police spokeswoman. It happened

Rock Falls basketball players and fans embrace Tuesday after the Rockets’ emotional, season-ending loss to Mendota at the LaSalle-Peru Regional. The Rock Falls community is mourning the loss of freshman Matthew Anderson, who was killed Saturday morning in an accidental shooting. shortly before noon Saturday, and almost immediately police reported it was an accident. “The two juveniles who are

friends happened to be at the residence of the trooper,� Bond said in a telephone interview. “The other individual is a

juvenile. His name isn’t being released. Nor do we release the names of troopers when there is an investigation. That information will be made public. These circumstances are different because it involves juveniles.� It took more than 2 days for state police to confirm the town where the incident happened – in a rural area near Rock Falls. Before that, they would say only that it was in District 1 of the state police, which covers Whiteside, Lee, Carroll and Ogle counties. “We will not be giving the [exact] location for safety reasons,� Bond said. “This involves the residence of a trooper. That will never come out.� She declined to say when the investigation would be finished. “You don’t put a timeframe on an investigation,� Bond said. “This has gone up the chain of command. The chain

of command is aware. This is an unthinkable tragedy.� She wouldn’t say what type of weapon was used or whether it was owned by state police, facts that the investigation will determine. The trooper works for state police’s District 15, which handles all of Illinois’ tollways. He was on duty at the time of the shooting and not at his house, Bond said. Before attending Rock Falls High, Anderson was a student at East Coloma School. He played on the school’s undefeated freshman football team and was a shooting guard for the basketball team. He also was a member of the 2011 and 2013 Rock Falls Little League state champion teams. “Whatever sport he was playing, Matt never complained, gave his all, and had a true love for the game,� reads his obituary, published on Page A4 in today’s editions.

ELECTION 2014 | 16TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT

Incumbent challenged by conservative candidate Hale questions Kinzinger’s votes

Election coverage continues s)N4HURSDAYSEDItions, SVM looks at the Republican candidates for the Ogle County state’s attorney.

BY DAVID GIULIANI dgiuliani@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 525

In 2012, the two candidates in the Republican primary election for the 16th Congressional District argued over who was more conservative. The race was between longtime incumbent Don Manzullo of Egan and first-term Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Channahon, who had represented the 11th Congressional District for 2 years. In 2011, the Democratic-run state Legislature redrew boundaries to put both men in the 16th District, which includes Lee County. The redistricting packed as many Republican voters as possible from the region into the 16th District so that other districts could go Democratic. The strategy worked. In the primary, Kinzinger knocked off Manzullo, a 20-year incumbent. Kinzinger made the case that he was more conservative, ready to cut back government and taxes, a message that worked well with the tea party. In the general election, Kinzinger handily defeated a poorly funded Democratic rival. These days, the tea party isn’t so happy with the 36-year-old Kinzinger, whom they see as capitu-

raised nearly $1 million for the campaign, mostly from the special interest groups that shower money on incumbents. Hale has less than $5,000. National groups such as FreedomWorks, Heritage PAC and the Club for Growth are known to fund challengers to Republican incumbents who are considered insufficiently conservative. They have given nothing to Hale, which likely means they believe Kinzinger has a lock on the seat. Hale, 51, said he didn’t mind the lack of donations from the major conservative groups.

“It helps me be much more independent,� he said. “Nothing against those groups. I don’t like PACs in general. When you take money from them, you are bound and chained to do what they tell you to do.� Kinzinger and other Republican House members, Hale said, are moving away from conservatism in the hopes of gaining Democratic votes. “They have turned into the Republican surrender caucus,� he said. Kinzinger’s recent vote against the debt limit increase, Hale contended, was the result of Hale’s

candidacy. “He knows someone is barking at his heels,� Hale said. “He doesn’t want to look bad to his base.� Generally, Hale, a U.S. Army veteran, calls for drastic cuts in government spending, but he draws the line at pay and benefits for the military. “The cuts that Obama is making are going to attack military pay and benefits,� he said. “If they’re going to go after the military, they’re going to have to go after the military industrial complex. Their pay and benefits should not be touched. If I were a congressman, I would be pushing continuously to raise the pay and benefits of the military.� Kinzinger has touted his support for the military. He joined the U.S. Air Force in 2003 and was later awarded his pilot wings. He continues to serve as a pilot in the Air National Guard, holding the rank of major. Kinzinger’s office didn’t respond to a request for an interview.

‘He just loved his community’ ARDUINI

CONTINUED FROM A1

“I think it’s time to quit,� he said in a Sauk Valley Media interview. The board elected Jim Duffy, D-Sterling, as his replacement and selected Arduini as the vice chairman. “I miss him. He reminded me of my dad,� said County Clerk Dana Nelson, who takes minutes of board meetings. “He was so knowledgeable and up to date on everything. He was pretty no-nonsense.� That “pretty no-nonsense style� kept meetings under Arduini rolling along. Colleagues joked that Arduini picked up the pace when his beloved Cubs were on TV that night. Arduini, a retired used car salesman, joined the board in 1965. Before that, he spent a dozen years as a justice of the peace, a position eliminated in the mid-1960s. In September 2012, the County Board surprised Arduini by honoring him as the longest-tenured

county board member in Illinois. The ceremony was attended by his wife, Arlene, and other family. He also received a proclamation from Gov. Pat Quinn, designating the day as Tony Arduini Day. “I’m glad we all get along once in a while,� Arduini joked. “We’ve done well over the years. I’m proud of you.� After others praised him, the chairman returned to his no-nonsense style. “I’m learning more about myself,� he said. “Now, can we get back to work?� Alderman Glen Kuhlemier, a two-time Rock Falls mayor, crossed paths with Arduini just prior to his first mayoral term that began in 1983. Over the years, Kuhlemier admired Arduini’s passion for the communities he served. “Tony was one of the most dedicated public servants I’ve ever seen,� Kuhlemier said. “His heart and soul has always been Whiteside County.� Kuhlemier worked with Arduini on many issues that crossed city

and county lines, including the enterprise zone, ambulance service, and the landfill. “It was always really easy working with him,� the Second Ward alderman said. “He wasn’t very vocal, but he still let you know if he didn’t agree with something.� Kuhlemier understands as well as anyone how difficult it can be to weather decades of political storms. “It’s easy for people to say ‘throw the old rascals out’ if they are unhappy with local government,� Kuhlemier said. “Experience is so important, and Tony’s experience and expertise will be sorely missed.� Another former Rock Falls mayor, David Blanton, met Arduini more than 30 years ago. Blanton and Jim Arduini, Tony’s brother, were running for Rock Falls City Council. The trio helped each other with their campaigns. Early on, Blanton said he realized what a caring person Tony was. “He just loved his com-

munity, and he wanted to make it the best place possible for everyone,� Blanton said. Whether or not you agreed with him, Blanton said, Arduini earned the respect of most. “He was always fair, and he stood up for what he thought was in the best interests of the community,� Blanton said. Blanton visited Arduini often, right up until the last time the former board chairman was hospitalized. He enjoyed their chats that always included family and politics. “We’ve lost a great community leader,� Blanton said. “He’ll be missed not just for his public service, but on a personal level as well.� Arduini is survived by his wife, three children, 28 grandchildren and many great-grandchildren. Visitation will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday at St. Andrew Catholic Church in Rock Falls. The Mass of Christian Burial will be at 10:30 a.m. Friday at the church.

PROPHETSTOWN | DOWNTOWN FIRE

Older boy pleads guilty to arson 17-year-old says he’s interested in fire safety course BY CHRISTI WARREN cwarren@saukvalley.com    EXT

STERLING – The older half-brother involved in starting the July fire that burned down much of downtown Prophetstown pleaded guilty to arson Tuesday.

In return for the plea, prosecutors dropped 18 other charges against him. Whiteside County Assistant State’s Attorney Carol Linkowski asked the judge to consider compensation for victims of the fire. Whiteside County Associate Judge Bill McNeal set the boy’s sentencing for April 22. The boy turned 17 on Monday. His younger half-brother

pleaded guilty to arson at the end of January and was sentenced to 5 years probation – the maximum allowable punishment. As the 17-year-old entered his plea, his mother sobbed quietly as she sat with her fiancÊ and the rest of the boy’s family. He has been living with his mother in Oshkosh, Wis., and will continue to do so. He has also apparently expressed interest

in attending a fire safety course offered by the Oshkosh Fire Department. Judge McNeal agreed with that idea. Linkowski said the boys indicated to authorities after the fire that they had sneaked out of their father’s house and that the older boy had a lighter. She said they first set fire to a recycling bin by the library, which they watched burn out, before starting a fire behind

Cindy Jean’s Restaurant. The boys took off their shirts and added them to the fire to increase the size of the flames, Linkowski said. Authorities say it was the fire behind the restaurant that spread, ultimately destroying eight buildings and damaging two others. More than half a dozen people were left homeless. The fire erupted about 2:30 a.m. in the 300 block

of Washington Street, which is the town’s main street and the heart of its historic downtown business district. The buildings were about 150 years old and housed business such as D’s Variety Store, Twisted Scissors salon, Kim’s Monograms, and the town’s historical society. Sauk Valley Media is not identifying the boys because they were charged as juveniles.

Hacker still tweeting Wescott proposes sales from district account tax increase for roads ROCK FALLS CITY COUNCIL

HACKER

CONTINUED FROM A1

Juenger said the district would shut down its email server overnight, and staff should have access this morning. Jim Fatz, the director of information security at Northern Illinois University, said public bodies and nonprofit groups are at greater risk of being compromised, because they often rely on open source software or products, which are cheaper or free. Open source software is made available or can be licensed to users, who can then alter or adapt that software to meet their needs. Wordpress, a popular blog and website design company, is an example of open source software. Fatz doubted that a public entity could pay “top dollar� for advanced security measures. “From a risk analysis perspective,� he said, “the question has to be asked: If it will take $50,000 or $60,000 to secure it, is it worth it?� While open source software can be more vulnerable, Fatz said, even the most secure networks – like the FBI – can get hacked because the most advanced security measures are only useful until someone figures out their weaknesses. The district’s website – www.DixonSchools. org – was compromised Sunday night, but by 7:30 a.m. Monday, according to district officials, it had been restored. Kinsella sent an email to staff saying the GoDaddy account had been hacked and the website had been redirected, but that there

was no risk of getting a computer virus through the website. The district’s email, Kinsella said, isn’t housed by GoDaddy, but is on another server, and the district uses software from a private company. Using GoDaddy for its website server, Fatz said, could have helped the school district, because it doesn’t have to worry about the physical servers. GoDaddy can assist it in getting the website moved to another server on the company’s end, he said.

A second redirect The district’s website was restored and remained as it usually is for much of Monday, until it was redirected again Monday night. The first redirect, Juenger said, sent visitors to a website that had an Internet Protocol, or IP, address registered in Germany. The second redirect, which happened about 10:30 p.m. Monday, had an IP address registered in Canada, Juenger said. At 9:30 a.m. Tuesday, the district’s website was back up, but with an older design and content. The navigation menu was blue, instead of the usual purple to match the Dixon High School color. The website was the same late Tuesday night. The only way to guarantee that a hacker no longer has access to accounts, Fatz said, is start from the beginning. Since the “symptoms� of a hack may not show up right away, a business or public body

that has been hacked can can also “go back to [the] last known good data� and rebuild from there. A point of “last known good data,� Fitz said, is a backup of the system its administrators know hasn’t been compromised. However, because hackers often cover their tracks and build security measures to give themselves access and keep others out, going back to the very beginning, Fatz said, can be quicker and easier than trying to figure out when a system was compromised.

Email compromised At 7:06 p.m. Monday, Sauk Valley Media received an email associated with the account of a Dixon Public Schools employee, but from the content of the email, it was clear the employee hadn’t sent the message. Juenger was informed of the email and later confirmed that the district’s email had been compromised. By 8 a.m. today, he said, the district had regained control of the email. The district’s Twitter account was compromised around 7 p.m. Monday, and later locked, Juenger said, preventing any further posts or changes by district officials. But late Tuesday, the Twitter account still had the same black and white cartoon the website had Sunday night. The tweets sent out by the hacker also remained, and new messages had been sent to Sauk Valley Media.

Mayor gives his first State of the City address BY PAM EGGEMEIER peggemeier@saukvalley.com    EXT

ROCK FALLS – Mayor Bill Wescott covered finances, roads and the riverfront in his State of the City address at Tuesday’s City Council meeting. Wescott said the terrible condition of city roads is an obvious problem with no simple solution. “Our residents demand that we remedy the situation,� Wescott said. “I’m sorry to tell you, but there is no easy solution.� The mayor tried to clear up some misconceptions regarding where the money for road repairs and improvements comes from. That money can come from only two funds: the state motor fuel tax, and the local option sales tax, better known as the half-cent sales tax. Rock Falls is now getting about $280,000 a year from the motor fuel tax. The city must use $140,000 of that for the next 5 years to pay off a bond for the West Second Street project. The rest is used for basic supplies such as gravel, sand and salt. The half-cent sales tax

 

    

Next meeting 4HE2OCK&ALLS#ITY #OUNCILNEXTMEETSAT PM-ARCH AT #ITY(ALL 7TH3T The agendas will be POSTEDATWWWROCK FALLSCOMANDAT #ITY(ALL#ALL  FORMOREINFORMA TION generates about $405,000 a year and can only be used for roads. Saying that would barely make a dent, given the magnitude of the problem, Wescott proposed an increase in the sales tax. “Perhaps it is time to get with Sterling and Dixon, to revisit the half-cent sales tax, and ask you, the residents, by vote in a referendum, if you would support an increase to the maximum of 1 cent total,â€? Wescott said. That would essentially double the available road money, giving the city about $810,000 a year to tackle buckling roads and potholes. Wescott emphasized that without the increased revenue, decaying roads will only get worse. The issue was raised by

residents during the 2013 mayoral race between Wescott and former mayor David Blanton. Then, Wescott said that the city needed a specific plan to address the state of the roads, and more money to pay for it. “I think that we need to evaluate our roads; we need to identify which ones are the worst, and then we need to come up with the funding, because the current funding is not going to allow it to happen,� Wescott said while on the campaign trail. During a quick financial overview, the mayor reminded citizens of the decrease in the overall assessed valuation of city properties. “The amount of property value considered for tax purposes dropped by $1.9 million over last year,� Wescott said. “As a result, the total amount of funds to be received from property taxes by the city equals only $1.1 million.� Given that scenario, the $5.2 million general fund budget needs to make up the $4 million shortfall with tax money received from the state.

Audit bad news for Quinn Troubling report might loom large in fall campaign Republicans wasted no time in attacking Gov. Pat Quinn over the scathing audit of the anti-violence Neighborhood Recovery Initiative. Who could blame them? Audits this bad haven’t really happened since the unlamented days of Rod Blagojevich. The program was designed to combat violence in Chicago. Coincidentally, it was hatched in August 2010 when Quinn was in a tight reelection campaign. It was Quinn’s office that gave the Illinois Violence Prevention Authority the goahead to do it. Auditor General William Holland said that in the first 2 years of the $54.5 million program, there were “pervasive deficiencies in IVPA’s planning, implementation and management� of the program. The audit said the program was “hastily implemented,� documen tation was lacking or non-existent, expenses weren’t adequately monitored, and on and on. On that expense issue, auditors said $4.4 million was charged to the program by various participating community agencies and partners,

but there were questions about $1.8 million of that. So, 40 percent of the expense money may or may not have been legitimate. There’s no way of telling. Auditor General Basically, William it appeared Holland to be anothIn the first 2 er case of years of Gov. something Pat Quinn’s $54.5 million that drives anti-violence t a x p a y e r s program, absolutely there were nuts: Mil“pervasive deficiencies lions of dolin IVPA’s lars going planning, out the implemendoor for a tation and management,� p r o g r a m Holland that, on its reported. surface, appears to have merit, only to have the money disappear into the vapor for lack of even basic accountability standards. Republicans immediately charged that there likely was criminal wrongdoing involved and called for outside investigations. They referred to the program

as a Quinn “slush fund� designed to curry favor for him in Chicago before the election. The phrase “impeachable offense� was even dropped. It’s hard to see that there would be any rush to impeachment. Quinn isn’t as universally despised as Blagojevich. But it is still a very troubling audit that could haunt Quinn throughout the upcoming campaign for governor. It wouldn’t be hard to put together an effective attack ad or mailer simply quoting from the audit. Plus, Republicans maintain a steady drumbeat demanding a criminal investigation. If one gets started, the administration has to worry about what it might produce. It’s way early to predict how this will affect the upcoming campaign, but it’s one of those things that could really loom large.

$ILLARDSECOND

BUTWAYBEHIND A We Ask America poll conducted last week showed state Sen. Kirk Dillard of Hinsdale solidly in second place in the Republican primary for governor. The poll showed Dillard with more than 17 percent of the vote, compared to Bloomington Sen. Bill Brady’s 13 percent. It gave Dillard some ammunition to refute Brady’s recent statements that the Repub-

lican primary is a twoman race between him and venture capitalist Bruce Rauner. Not sure it’s a good thing when a hot issue in the primary is who is in second place. The problem for Dillard is that his 17 percent in the poll is still less than half of the 36 percent that Rauner is polling with 2 weeks left before the election. That’s a lot of ground to make up, even if Dillard’s recent ads are starting to build support for him and the anti-Rauner ads bankrolled by unions are having a negative effect on him. The We Ask America poll showed nearly 27 percent still undecided, so Dillard has the chance to make up some ground with them, although it’s unreasonable to think he’d get them all. By the way, the poll showed Treasurer Dan Rutherford getting slightly more than 7 percent of the vote. If he can overcome that kind of deficit in the time remaining, it will be one of the biggest campaign stories of all time.

In my 23 years of being a firefighter, I’ve developed relationships with firefighters, jailers, dispatchers, EMTs and deputies, and I can tell you it’s time for change. Sheriff Varga’s antics of doing what and when he wants, have to end. Not only are his poor decisions affecting investigations, but his promotions of deputies are illegal. Prior to Varga, all deputies were given the opportunity to test for promotion. However, with Varga, not one promotional test was given. He simply decides who he likes and promotes them. One was done so secretly, other deputies did not know about it. Was this approved by the county board? Was the county’s merit board utilized in recent promotions? The answer is no. Illinois Statute 55 ILCS 5, Article 3, Division 3-8, Sec. 3-8011 states: “Whenever a position in a higher rank is to be filled, the merit commission shall certify to sheriff the names of eligible persons who stand highest upon the promotional register for the rank to which the position belongs. The commission shall make certifications for promotion on the basis of ascertained merit, seniority of service, and physical and other qualifying examinations.� Citizens of Lee County, shouldn’t the sheriff follow the law?

Now that spring is just around the corner (wishful thinking), it’s time to think about gardening again. I am trying to put together a community gardens project in the west end by Memorial Park through the Dixon Park District and the city of Dixon. The opportunity is there if the interest is, too. Its later expansion depends on its success or demise. The only thing needed is people who want to grow their own food. If you are interested, please call the park district at 815-284-3306 and let them know so we can pursue this in time to make it work its first year.

Russian president talks tough but cools tensions Putin: Russia has no intention to fight Ukrainian people MOSCOW (AP) – Stepping back from the brink of war, Vladimir Putin talked tough but cooled tensions in the Ukraine crisis in his first comments since its president fled, saying Tuesday that Russia has no intention “to fight the Ukrainian people� but reserved the right to use force. As the Russian president held court in his personal residence, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry met with Kiev’s fledgling government and Moscow agreed to sit down with NATO. Although nerves remained on edge in Crimea, with Russian troops firing warning shots to ward off Ukrainian soldiers, global markets catapulted higher on tentative signals that the Kremlin was not seeking to escalate the conflict. Kerry brought moral support and a $1 billion aid package to a Ukraine

After recently giving her the cellphone back, Lizzie has been talking I learned last night that to him and lying to me

about it. He sent her a text that if she didn’t answer his call within 7 minutes, he was either going to shoot himself or cut himself. He included a picture of his arm with a knife held against it. She thinks that her compliance is all that’s standing in the way of this boy killing himself. I’m scared for her safety, but she won’t listen to me because she “loves�

him. When I called the boy’s mother about it, she became defensive and accused me of implying she was a bad mother. Please tell me how to handle this. – Worried Mom in North Carolina Dear Worried Mom: It’s time to have a nonconfrontational conversation with your daughter about the dynamics of emotional blackmail,

because that’s exactly what she’s experiencing. Your daughter needs to realize that the boy appears to have serious emotional problems and, as much as she may love him, she’s not equipped to help him or to prevent him from hurting himself if he really wants to. As long as Lizzie sees herself as a hero who is saving his life by sacrificing hers, he won’t get the

help he needs. So if she REALLY cares about him – and I have no doubt she does – she will end the relationship because it isn’t a healthy one for either of them.

chicken, water and vegetables (onions, carrots, celery) in a slow cooker. Let it cook all day on low. Remove the chicken, pick the meat off it, strain the liquid into a bowl. Cool and refrigerate it. Chill it until the fat rises and gels on the top. Remove and discard the fat.

f you’ve resolved to eat more healthfully in 2014, think soup. It’s filling and, when made with the right ingredients, can make you feel better by the bowlful. “There is research that suggests when you have a bowl of soup before a meal, you consume fewer calories,� said Bethany Thayer, registered dietitian nutritionist and news media spokeswoman for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. “The fluid is helping give that sense of fullness.� You need only look to the latest food trends for soup recipe inspiration. Vegetables are everywhere right now, and for good reason. They are loaded with fiber, vitamins and minerals. At Russell Street Deli at Detroit’s Eastern Market, soups are big business (they serve about six varieties on any given day) and the most popular are the ones packed with greens, says chef Derrick Bonds. “We always try to make them as healthy and hearty as possible,� Bonds says. And home cooks can, too: Just go for the greens, says Larissa Shain, a registered dietitian with the Metabolic Nutrition and Weight Management Program at St. Joseph Mercy Oak-

For those wanting to eat better in 2014, soup is a good option, as it is filling and can make you feel better bowl by bowl. One such healthy option is spicy pork and mustard green soup. land hospital in Pontiac, Mich. “Using the green leafy vegetables and cruciferous vegetables means it will be high in vitamins and fiber,� she says. And green veggies, Shain adds, contain chloro-

Exercise is not only for the able bodied BY SHERRY DEWALT CGH Medical Center

Do you like to watch the games? I’m not talking about the Winter Olympics, but about the Winter Paralympic Games. Since 1988, the Paralympic Games have followed the Olympic Games in winter and summer. This year’s games in Sochi kick off March 7. The Paralympics feature athletes with a wide variety of physical and intellectual disabilities. These athletes accomplish amazing feats of athleticism and should inspire everyone, but especially those who have a disability and would like to improve their health and fitness level. It is important for everyone, regardless of ability, to be active. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that adults be physically active for 30 minutes a day, at least 5 days a week, and that children be active for 60 minutes a day, at least 5 days each week. People with disabilities should follow these guidelines. If a person with a disability is not able to meet these guidelines, they should be active based on their abilities and by all means should avoid inactivity. For people with disabilities who want to find out more about being more active the website of the National Center on Health, Physical Activity, and Disability (www. ncpad.org) is a good place to start. NCHPAD serves as an advocate and a resource for people with disabilities. The website offers newslet-

ters, videos, and a directory of facilities and services dedicated to people with disabilities. The site also features a webbased physical activity and nutrition program to help people with disabilities get moving and make healthier nutrition choices. You can also contact your local park district or fitness center to see what inclusive programs they offer. For the more adventurous, there are programs and camps in Illinois

specifically organized for people with disabilities. One example is the wheelchair basketball camp offered each summer at the University of Illinois. And there is an organization in Chicago that organizes inclusive winter sports camps. Having a disability does not mean a person is not healthy or that he or she cannot be healthy. Making good food choices, being more active, and staying at a healthy weight are as important for persons with disabilities as for those without. A healthy lifestyle allows you to have the strength to cope with everyday challenges, and can help you to avoid and manage diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and other diseases. Remember to check with your healthcare provider before becoming more active.

Buttercup is a 4 year old Chihuahua/Dachsund mix. She has a short chocolate brown coat with white and tan markings. This tiny girl is only 9 pounds. She is spayed and has all current shots. Buttercup’s owner was no longer able to care for her. She was mostly housebroke using “potty-pads�. Here, she is learning to go outside to potty. She is very lovable and likes people to pay attention to her. To our knowledge, she has not lived with children. So a home without young children is needed. She could likely do well with the companionship of another dog or maybe even a cat. Buttercup is an adorable small dog that has a large amount of love to offer a person! She wants to be pampered.

The farm store held an open house at their Polo location Tuesday as part of the company’s 60th anniversary and the Birkey’s 60 Day Hunger Drive. Birkey’s has pledged to raise $100,000 for local food banks. Customers who donated $10 or more earned entries into a drawing for a restored 1954 Farmall Super MTA tractor. The Polo FFA assisted with the event. Vendors selling products at Birkey’s were on hand to talk about their products and provide informational fliers to the customers.

Red carpet treatment

Tweet, tweet

Upon his return to the White Sox’s spring training facility following his trip to the Oscars, slugger Adam Dunn found a red carpet leading to velvet ropes & Oscar statuette cut-outs at his locker.

Chicago Tribune reporter Shannon Ryan (@sryantribune): “Looks like @BP3 [Brandon Paul] is unloading his best-of #JoeTales on Twitter for [Joseph] Bertrand’s last home game.”

MENDOTA 59, ROCK FALLS 48

Loss can’t stifle spirit of Rockets Hot start, fan support show Rock Falls resolve BY PATRICK PETROSKY ppetrosky@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 551

Alex T. Paschal/apaschal@saukvalley.com

Dixon defenders Kyle LeBlanc (left), Laron Carr (middle) and Matt Coffey swarm Sterling’s Juan Gomez during their Class 3A LaSalle-Peru Regional semifinal Tuesday. The Dukes beat the Golden Warriors 50-39, advancing to Friday’s regional championship against Mendota.

How sweep it is

LaSALLE – Chants of “Anderson” from the Rock Falls student section flooded the rafters. Though the Rockets had just lost their 3A LaSalle-Peru Regional semifinal game 59-48 to Mendota, the spirit of both team and its fans was not broken. “It’s great,” senior guard Austin Donoho said. “The win [Monday] night was huge for the community, and I think it brought everyone that much closer together. Such a tragic event happened. It just brings us all together, and it was great for the community – because it’s bigger than basketball.” Rock Falls (8-21) started off the game on fire, hitting its first four shots from behind the 3-point arc. Three of them belonged to freshman Logan Pillars.

Dukes move on with third win over Warriors BY PATRICK PETROSKY ppetrosky@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, 551

LaSALLE – The Dixon Dukes completed a season sweep of the Sterling Golden Warriors, and did so with seasons on the line. A grind-it-out style of game favored the Dukes, who won 50-39 Tuesday night in their LaSalle-Peru Regional semifinal matchup. A defensive-oriented game favored the Golden Warriors early on, as a basket by sophomore Sterling Thornton gave Sterling an 11-6 lead lead 2 minutes into the second quarter. “We played good defense,” Sterling coach Jim Preston said. “Our offense struggled early, and never really got on track tonight.” Dixon senior Cal Jarrett contributed nine points to a 15-6 second quarter run that gave his team a 21-17 lead at halftime.

SPIRIT CONTINUED ON B3

Star of the game: Isaiah Roby, Dixon, 14 points, 9 rebounds, 3 blocks Up next: Class 3A LaSalle-Peru Regional championship, Dixon vs. Mendota, 7 p.m. Friday “Our biggest adjustment was just recognizing how much they were sagging in the lane,” Dixon coach Jason Mead said. “For some reason, we were timid to shoot it, and then once we started to figure out that we had to make some shots, and rebound against their sag, then we were able to make a run.” Out of the locker room, the teams exchanged baskets. Isaiah Roby was a main force for Dixon (22-6), and he added three baskets and a free throw to help build up a 30-23 lead halfway through the third. SWEEP CONTINUED ON B3

BOYS BASKETBALL | CLASS 2A BUREAU VALLEY SECTIONAL | SEMIFINAL | NEWMAN VS. SENECA

Newman ready for Round 2 Comets hope to handle Seneca in sectional semi again BY BRIAN WEIDMAN bweidman@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 551

Philip Marruffo/pmarruffo@saukvalley.com

Even after defeating Seneca in last year’s Byron sectional semifinal, A.J. Sharp (bottom) and the Newman Comets know they’ll have to have stingy defense and smooth offense to beat the Fighting Irish today at the 2A Bureau Valley Sectional in Manlius.

SPORTS inside

The last time Newman tangled with Seneca, the Comets took the fight right out of the Fighting Irish. Round 2 is on tap for tonight, when the teams meet in a Class 2A Bureau Valley Sectional semifinal in Manlius. The winner advances to the title game on Friday night to take on IC Catholic, a 65-63 winner in overtime against Winnebago in the first semi on Tuesday night. A year ago, Newman and Seneca also squared off in a sectional semifinal, at Byron.

When: 7 p.m. today Where: Bureau Valley H.S., Manlius At stake: A berth in the sectional championship, 7 p.m. Friday Waiting: IC Catholic, a 65-63 winner in overtime against Winnebago in Tuesday’s semifinal. The Comets rolled over the Fighting Irish, 46-27. “I’m sure Seneca’s looking at this as a revenge game from last year,” Newman coach Ray Sharp said, “and are really going to be keyed up.”

Seneca (24-5) won the Interstate Eight Conference this season, then took the Princeton Regional with 59-54 victory against Bureau Valley. Sharp watched tape of that game and knows his defense will have to be at the top of its game to slow down the Fighting Irish attack. “We know as a team, they execute really well,” Sharp said. “Their first possession against BV, they had eight flex cutters. That means they reversed the ball eight times on one possession.

Kurt Busch (right), seen here with Andretti Autosport owner and former IndyCar driver Michael Andretti last May, will be the first driver in a decade to run both the Indy 500 and Coca-Cola 600 on the same day.

Pulling ‘Double’ duty Kurt Busch to race Indy 500, Coca-Cola 600 in same day BY JENNA FRYER !0!UTO2ACING7RITER

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – It’s been 10 years since a driver last attempted running both the Indianapolis 500 and the Coca-Cola 600 on the same day, a feat so grueling that only Tony Stewart has successfully completed all 1,100 miles. Now Kurt Busch wants to give “the double� a try, and he will have cars capable of winning both races. He said Tuesday he will attempt to make the Indianapolis 500 in a fifth entry for Andretti Autosport. Should he make the May 25 race, Busch would then fly to Charlotte Motor Speedway to fulfill his full-time job with StewartHaas Racing – a team co-owned by Stewart – in NASCAR’s longest event of the year. “I’m a fan of motorsports, a student of motorsports, and I view this as a challenge for myself,� Busch said. “Memorial Day weekend, the central focus of all motorsports is Monaco, Indianapolis and Charlotte, and this is a tremendous opportunity to be right in the middle of it.� Only John Andretti, Stewart and Robby Gordon have attempted the “double,� and no driver has tried since Gordon in 2004. “Welcome to the club!� Gordon posted on his Twitter account.

“That’s what we’ve got to be ready for,� coach Sharp added, “and make sure we’ve got the mental focus to handle a team that’s going to execute, execute, execute on us.� The unquestioned leader of the Fighting Irish is 6-foot-2 senior guard Conlan Callahan, a 4-year starter. He averages 14.1 points and 5.5 rebounds per game, and their attack runs through him. He shoots 41 percent (67 of 161) from 3-point range, and is also a deadly (78for-90, 86 percent) freethrow shooter. “When they need a bucket, he usually goes and gets it,� Sharp said. “If you leave him open or give him an advantage on the dribble, he’s going to try and take it to the basket.� “We definitely have to keep an eye on him,� Newman senior guard Nate Terveer added. “He’s a great player, but they have more than just him. We have to know where

Alex Bott, a 6-2 senior, is the third guard and averages 9.7 points and 3.1 rebounds. The inside muscle is provided by Austin Applebee, a 6-5 senior averaging 8.1 rebounds and 7.8 points, and Brad Wyss, a 6-2 senior

averaging 4.3 points and 3.3 rebounds. The Comets used a helping man-to-man defense to stifle the Irish a year ago, Callahan in particular. He was 0-for10 from the floor and didn’t score a point. “We’ve got to play good team defense,� Sharp said, “and make sure all five guys are guarding the ball, and seeing their own man, and not getting lost

in the rotations when we’re helping.� Newman (27-2) handled spirited efforts from West Carroll and Fulton to win the Morrison Regional, its third straight regional crown. Noah McCarty, a 6-7 sophomore center, was particularly hard to handle against the Steamers, with 23 points and nine rebounds. He’s averaging 14.4 points and 8.7 boards per game. Point guard A.J. Sharp (14.2 points, 5.9 assists, 3.7 rebounds) makes the attack go, and shooting guard John Payan (13.3 points, 3.1 rebounds) is the top long-range threat. Terveer (7.1 points, 5.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 2.1 steals) and Micah Trancoso (3.4 points, 3.1 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 2.2 steals) are each superior defenders. “We’re really excited to get back to the sectional game,� Terveer said, “and we know that Seneca is really good again this year. They’ve got a few guys back that are good scorers, and they execute really well. We have to come in ready to play.�

The Golden Warriors (10-15) mounted a collective comeback. An and-one layup from Thornton was followed up by a pair of baskets from senior Draque PenaflorHeier to bring the team within two, at 32-30. “We didn’t want our season to end,� Sterling senior Zach Rehmert said. “We knew that if we could make something happen, we would have a chance to win, and that happened.� An 11-0 run for the Dukes then ensued, from the 3:25 mark of the third quarter all the way until the 2:56 mark of the fourth. “It was just hustle, “ Roby said. “We were just out-hustling them during that run. It started that run, and I think we should play that way every game. “We were focused on where we needed to be on offense. We needed to execute to make it not so close of a game. The past two games we have played bad, and it made them closer than what they needed to be. We just focused on executing our stuff and getting better.� A pair of 3s from Rehmert broke the quarter-long scoring drought for Sterling, and instilled life into his team. It also cut the Dixon lead to 47-36 with a 2 minutes to play. But when he went to hoist up a third attempt, he ran into some trouble. That trouble was Roby’s lengthy arms, as he blocked the shot that could have made it a single-digit game. Instead, it turned into a pair of free throws for Jarrett, who sank both to ultimately put the game out of reach at 49-36 with 1:15 left. “You have to win with defense,� Mead said. “That’s been an emphasis for us all year, to keep teams under 45 points.

That is what won us the game, because there sure wasn’t a lot of offense. “It’s hard to beat a team three times. They’re a better team than what their record indicates, and they’re well-coached. It’s a testament to our kids that they did what they needed to do to earn the right to play on Friday.� Sterling is left wondering what could have been. “I thought our defense in general

tonight was good enough to win the basketball game,� Preston said. “They did some things defensively that took us out of what we wanted to do. We got some good looks, but they just didn’t go down tonight. Some nights are like that. “I think the three seniors did a good job this year, coming out and competing. They showed the younger kids what it was like to come out and compete night in and night out exceptionally.�

Foul trouble haunted Rock Falls, and six players picked up at least two fouls. This put a dent in the Rockets’ offense, and allowed Mendota to climb right back into the game.

Wolverines’ 3s bury Illini Michigan sews up first outright Big Ten title since 1986 BY DAVID MERCER AP Sports Writer

CHAMPAIGN – Michigan came to Illinois with a shot at sewing up its first outright Big Ten title since 1986. One potential obstacle stood in the way: The Illini were riding a hot streak, and had held four straight opponents under 50 points. It turns out Illinois wasn’t too much of a problem. Michigan (22-7, 14-3 Big Ten) buried Illinois with 16 3-pointers on the way to an 84-53 blowout Tuesday night. Nik Stauskas scored 24 points, hitting a careerbest seven 3-pointers. He said Michigan didn’t want to share the championship with anybody, something it did in 2012. “We came with that mindset, this was our championship and we wanted to win it,� he said. Dialed in or not, Michigan coach John Beilein said he didn’t see that kind of shooting performance coming against the Illini (17-13, 6-11). “I haven’t seen that in practice, even,� Beilein said. “We were really good today.� Michigan shot 70 percent from 3-point range, and hit 29 of its 51 shots from the field (56.9 percent). Michigan’s shooting was a “perfect storm� that reminded Illinois coach John Groce of LeBron James’ 61-point game on Monday night. “He said he felt like he was throwing a golf ball in an ocean,� Groce said. “That’s what it was like tonight.� Michigan had the game in hand by halftime, with a 52-30 lead. The Wolverines hit five straight 3-pointers midway through the half to break the game open. The 15-point run widened Michigan’s narrow

shooting was a quietly dominant performance on the boards by the Wolverines, outrebounding Illinois 33-23. Jon Horford led Michigan with 10 boards. The Illini had won three straight. The loss was their worst at home in the 51-year history of the arena formerly known as the Assembly Hall, and now called the State Farm Center. Rayvonte Rice led Illinois with 16, and Kendrick Nunn added 14. While Michigan broke 50 points by halftime, Illinois didn’t get there until the game had just

over 3 minutes left, and had long been decided. Offensively, the Illini weren’t bad over the first 20 minutes, shooting 54.2 percent. But the Wolverines were unstoppable. They were 11-for-14 from 3-point range (78.6 percent) in the first half. And Michigan had a dozen assists in those decisive 20 minutes and, against a team that had been living off steals, had turned the ball over just three times. The Illini had scored 20.7 points a game off steals during their threegame win streak.

NHL | AVALANCHE 4, BLACKHAWKS 2

Barrie got open in the left circle and one-timed Erik Johnson’s perfect crossice feed high past Corey Crawford on the glove side. It was Barrie’s second game-winner against Chicago this season, following an overtime goal against the Blackhawks on Jan. 14. Paul Stastny completed the scoring with an empty-netter with 32.6 seconds left. Ben Smith and Jonathan Toews scored for Chicago, which was without veteran forward Marian Hossa. Toews has three goals in his last two games.

A way to retain trump control

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

Sylvester Stallone said, “Success is usually the culmination of controlling failure.” That does not apply to this deal, where declarer needs to retain trump control for success, not failure. West leads the diamond ace against six hearts. How should South continue? The auction might have gone several ways. North chose to show both of his suits (three clubs was gameforcing), then jumped to five hearts to try to highlight his diamond void and ask for good trumps. South’s threediamond cue-bid asked his partner to bid three no-trump with a diamond stopper. Then, over three spades, he gave preference to clubs. If North had now bid six

clubs, he would have made that slam easily, taking three spades, three hearts and six clubs. Also, North could have deduced that South held strong hearts when he did

not bid three no-trump. Declarer must resist the temptation of an overtrick. If hearts are breaking 3-2, South can take 16(!) tricks: three spades, five hearts, six clubs and two diamond ruffs in the dummy. But if South ruffs the opening lead on the board and tries to draw trumps by cashing two top hearts immediately, he will fail. Instead, declarer should lead a trump from the board at trick two and play low from his hand. In that way, he retains a heart in the dummy to ruff another diamond, and he can then safely draw trumps before running the clubs. Finally, note that if West had led his singleton spade, South probably would have failed. He would have needed mirrors to get home. The curious can work it out. © 2014 UFS
