SERVING DIXON AND THE SURROUNDING AREA SINCE 1851

UPDATE | BODY FOUND ON INTERSTATE 88

ISP: Alcohol likely a factor No investigation being done into police response BY CHRISTI WARREN cwarren@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 521

DIXON – Alcohol might have been a contributing factor in the death of a man found alongside Interstate 88 just west of Dixon on Nov. 13, Illinois State Police said Thursday. Lee Catlin, 65, of Bettendorf, Iowa, was found along the side of the highway, just west of Dixon, almost 12 hours after

two 911 calls were made to alert state police to his presence. Catlin’s car was found along the the highway less than a mile west of where his body was found, State Police Capt. Jim Winters said Thursday. “It does appear alcohol was a contributing factor [in Catlin’s death],” state police spokeswoman Monique Bond told the Associated Press on Thursday. “We just don’t know. Maybe he had passed out someplace, then again got up [and collapsed elsewhere]. It’s unclear, and it’s unfortunate.” ALCOHOL CONTINUED ON A2

DIXON – The president of a performing arts school who is charged with failing to report sexual abuse allegations is expected to turn himself in next week, police said Thursday. An arrest warrant was issued Nov. 21 for Curt Schmitt, president of Dixon’s VIVA! Performing Arts School. Dixon Police Chief Danny Langloss said Schmitt had been out of the country, but that police have been in touch with an attorney who represents one of the people charged, and Schmitt is expected to surrender to police as soon as he returns. Langloss said police have statements from more than one person indicating that Schmitt knew about abuse allegations made by a former student against VIVA! vocal instructor Robert Campbell. Tim Boles, the school’s director of drama, also is charged with failing to report the sex abuse allegations. Boles and Schmitt have the same local address, police said. During the summer of 2012, police say, Campbell abused a then-16-year-old boy. The abuse reportedly occurred at VIVA! CUSTODY CONTINUED ON A2

NAVY FRAUD CASE

Navy investigator to plead guilty Beliveau one of three charged, including Lanark High School grad SAN DIEGO (AP) – A senior Navy investigator accused of tipping off an Asian defense contractor at the center of a multimillion-dollar fraud probe in exchange for prostitution services and luxury travel plans to plead guilty to bribery charges, his lawyer said Thursday. John Beliveau II will plead guilty to bribery and conspiracy to commit bribery Tuesday in federal court in San Diego, his attorney Jan Ronis said. The guilty plea will be the first for prosecutors

in the case rocking the Pentagon. The supervisory agent with the Naval Criminal Investi- Cmdr. Michael gative Ser- Vannak Khem vice is one of Misiewicz three Navy officials who have been arrested in the case. Navy Cmdrs. Michael Vannak Khem Misiewicz, 46, and Jose Luis Sanchez, 41, also are charged. Misiewicz graduated from Lanark High School in 1986. Prosecutors allege the

Navy officials were in cahoots with Malaysian defense contractor Leonard Glenn Francis, who was arrested in San Diego in September. Authorities say Francis, the 49-yearold CEO of Singaporebased Glenn Defense Marine Asia Ltd., or GDMA, offered bribes to Navy officers in exchange for confidential information — including ship routes — that he used to overbill the Navy for port services in Asia. Francis and his cousin, a company manager who was also arrested, have pleaded not guilty. Two

Navy captains also have pleaded not guilty. Ronis declined to say whether his client has agreed to cooperate with investigators in the expanding probe, which prompted the Navy to suspend two admirals’ access to classified material. Beliveau faces a maximum sentence of 20 years for the two charges he’s admitting. “He accepts responsibility for what he’s done and he’s hoping for a fair sentence,� Ronis said. Prosecutors declined to comment on the development Thursday.

Fatal fire investigation nears end

Residents won’t move from disabled facility

Report expected within a few days BY CHRISTI WARREN cwarren@saukvalley.com    EXT

DIXON – The state fire marshal’s office reported Thursday that it was close to finishing its investigation into a Nov. 1 fire that left a Dixon woman dead. Milly Santiago, a marshal’s office spokeswoman, said in an email that the cause remains unknown for a fire that destroyed the home at 1787 Clearview Road. “A report will be completed during the next few days,� she said. The body of 58-yearold Louise Lopez-Landherr was found a few hours after fire destroyed her house. Her husband,

Louise Lopez-Landherr, 58, died in a Nov. 1 fire that destroyed this house at 1787 Clearview Road west of Dixon. The state fire marshal’s office said Thursday it is close to finishing its investigation into the cause of the fire. John Landherr, was not home when the blaze broke out. At the time of the fire,

Dixon Rural Fire Chief Norris Tucker Jr. said that nothing at the scene appeared suspicious

and that conducting an investigation into the fire’s cause was “all just standard procedure.�

CARLYLE (AP) – A judge’s ruling this week means 23 wards of the state will not be moved for now from the facility for the developmentally disabled where they live in southern Illinois. It was welcome news to groups behind a federal civil rights lawsuit seeking to block the state’s closure of the Murray Developmental Center in Centralia. Gov. Pat Quinn ordered Murray and other facilities closed last year as part of an effort to save the state tens of millions of dollars. The suit, filed by parents of residents and support groups for the developmentally disabled, contends that the more than

200 people living at Murray would not get the care they need if transferred to smaller communitybased homes. Many of the residents have spent a majority of their lives at the facility and have severe disabilities that only an institution can adequately handle, the lawsuit says. The legal action has delayed transfers for most residents, but 23 of them are wards of the state with no parents or guardians to advocate for them. A Clinton County judge decided Wednesday to postpone a ruling on whether they will be included in the lawsuit, the Belleville News-Democrat reported.

St. Charles man arrested TV advertisements push health insurance on sexual abuse charge CHICAGO (AP) – With days to go before an important deadline, the state of Illinois is launching a long-delayed TV advertising blitz on Friday telling people to “enroll now� for insurance coverage under the nation’s health care law.

The $1 million television ad buy in eight major markets across the state comes just 10 days before a Dec. 23 sign-up deadline for people who want their health coverage to start Jan. 1. One 30-second ad

shows people at work in factories, on farms and in kitchens. The voiceover says, “Now we can all be covered.� The ads direct people to the Get Covered Illinois website, a gateway to the new insurance market where people can shop

for subsidized private insurance. Other ads focus on one of the law’s key protections for people with health care needs, the requirement that insurers cover everyone regardless of their health.

OBITUARIES John â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Jakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Broderick OREGON â&#x20AC;&#x201C; John â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jakeâ&#x20AC;? Broderick, 70, of Oregon, passed away Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2013, in Oregon. Jake was born June 9, 1943, in Norwood, Mass., to Michael and Margaret â&#x20AC;&#x153;Peggyâ&#x20AC;? (Doyle) Broderick. They moved in the early 1950s to Oregon, where he resided his entire life. Jake graduated from Oregon High School in 1961. He attended Northern Illinois University, where he played football for the Huskies. He was a member of the 1963 football team, which won the College Division National Championship with an undefeated 10-0 record. He was married to Bridget Sassaman for 24 years. He was a member of the Mendota Elks, National Rifle Association, Ducks Unlimited, Pheasants Forever, and Rock River Valley Pigeon Club. Jake lived life to the fullest. He loved the outdoors, being an avid hunter and fisherman. He raised and raced homing pigeons. He enjoyed playing golf and watching the Green Bay Packers beat the Chicago Bears. He worked at E.D. Etnyre and Co. for 43 years, starting in 1964 as a factory worker assembling chip spreaders. He progressed into the service department, then outside sales, and eventually retired as sales manager in January 2007. Jake was an adored and devoted son, brother, father, grandfather, and friend. He had a personality beyond compare, never missing

the opportunity to make a great story even better. He exhibited a spirit of quiet generosity to those who needed help, and unyielding loyalty to his family and friends. He will be deeply missed by many.

YEMEN

Officials: Strike by U.N. inspectors confirm chemical attacks U.S. drone kills 13 SANAA, Yemen (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Missiles fired by a U.S. drone slammed into a convoy of vehicles traveling to a wedding party in central Yemen on Thursday, killing at least 13 people, Yemeni security officials said. The officials said the attack took place in the city of Radda, the capital of Bayda province, and left charred bodies and burnt out cars on the road. The city, a stronghold of al-Qaida militants, witnessed deadly clashes early last year between armed tribesmen backed by the military and al-Qaida gunmen in an attempt to drive them out of the city. There were no immediate details on who was

killed in the strike, and there were conflicting reports about whether there were militants traveling with the wedding convoy. A military official said initial information indicated the drone mistook the wedding party for an al-Qaida convoy. He said tribesmen known to the villagers were among the dead. One of the three security officials, however, said al-Qaida militants were suspected to have been traveling with the wedding convoy. The CIA declined to comment on the reported drone strike. While the U.S. acknowledges its drone program in Yemen, it does not usually talk about individual strikes.

UNITED NATIONS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Chemical weapons were probably used in four locations in Syria this year, in addition to the confirmed attack near Damascus in August that forced the government to abandon its secret chemical stockpile, U.N. inspectors said in a report released Thursday. The experts, led by Swedish pro-

fessor Ake Sellstrom, examined seven alleged chemical weapons attacks and said it lacked information to corroborate the allegations at two locations. The inspectorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; limited mandate barred them from identifying whether the government or opposition fighters were responsible for

any of the attacks. Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report said evidence indicated chemical weapons were probably used in Khan al Assal outside Aleppo, Jobar in Damascusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; eastern suburbs, Saraqueb near Idlib in the northwest, and Ashrafiah Sahnaya in the Damascus countryside.

RELIGIOUS EXPRESSIONS

Atheists join holiday fray with own displays Presentation in Chicago meant to be a protest CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A few feet from a life-size nativity scene at Chicagoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual Christmas market stands an 8½-foot-tall letter â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; that says â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bah Humbugâ&#x20AC;? to all of that. Adorned with red lights that make it look a bit like a misshapen candy cane, the big â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; stands for atheist or agnostic. The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation erected it this holiday season to send the message that it believes religious displays on public property are unconstitutional violations of the separation of church and state. But instead of employing the typical tactic of

it needed something bigger and brighter than the banners it has put up in other cities, and that it was worth the $1,500 to build the huge scarlet letter and the $500 the city charges to put it up and plug it in at the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Christkindlmarketâ&#x20AC;? at Daley Plaza. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our little banners are dwarfed by those nativity scenes and menorahs, and we were trying to find something to compete with them,â&#x20AC;? Gaylor said of what is easily the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest, and most ambitious and expensive display ever. Reinforcing the message of the big, flashy â&#x20AC;&#x153;A,â&#x20AC;? the display includes a banner that depicts its own version of a nativity scene: An image of Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin and the Statue of Liberty gazing lovingly at the Bill of Rights nestled in a manger.

IN BRIEF

Deleware judge: Cheap Trick case belongs in home state

Commission OKs proposed toll road

Lawsuit already filed in federal court in Illinois WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A Delaware judge on Thursday dismissed a lawsuit filed by three members of the rock group Cheap Trick against the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exdrummer, saying a dispute among the musicians should be decided in federal court in Illinois, where they formed. Guitarist Rick Nielesen, vocalist Robin Zander and bassist Tom Peterson sought a court declaration validating steps they took earlier this year to remove drummer Brad Carlson, also known as Bun E. Carlos, as a board member of three band businesses incorporated in Delaware. The three other band members contend that Carlos, who stopped touring with the group three years ago, lost his voting rights as a shareholder because he had left the band. The longtime group, known for its use of vintage guitars on tour, gained acclaim over the decades with such hits as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Surrender,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;I Want You to Want Meâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dream Police.â&#x20AC;? The band, minus Carlson, is still touring and is slated to headline a Mardi Gras event in New Orleans in March. By agreement with other band members, Carlson stopped touring

with the group in 2010. But he disputes their claims that he is no longer a member of Cheap Trick and is not entitled to participate in its business affairs. Carlsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorneys argue that he was improperly ousted, citing a previous agreement that says any decision involving the band requires the unanimous consent of all four members. The drummerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyers also said the Delaware suit should be dismissed in a favor of an earlier lawsuit filed in federal court in Illinois, in which Carlos and former band manager David Frey claim their purported ousters were invalid. The two

claim they are owed hundreds of thousands of dollars. Chancellor Leo Strine Jr. agreed with Carlosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; attorneys, saying many of the issues in the Delaware lawsuit are identical to those raised in the Illinois case. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no question that this case and the Illinois action arise out of a common nucleus of facts,â&#x20AC;? the judge said. Strine said Illinois, where the band formed in the 1970s and where two members still live, was a logical jurisdiction for resolving â&#x20AC;&#x153;gardenvarietyâ&#x20AC;? questions of contract interpretation, including whether Carlson is still a member of the band.

The group is closely watching the displayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reception and has asked the city to keep a close eye on it to ensure it does not meet the same fate as some of their other displays. Gaylor says there have been outright thefts in Boston and other cities as well as defacement like a banner in Ottawa, that had a run-in with a guy in a Santa Claus suit armed with a paint brush.

THE CARTOONISTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S VOICE

Dave Granlund, GateHouse News Service

Shining the spotlight on achievement What we think We offer our congratulations to a championship football team, a distinguished physician, and a veteran attorney for the statewide honors that they received.

S

tatewide recognition is not easy to achieve. We would be remiss if we did not comment on three recent instances of such accomplishment. The Newman Central Catholic High School football team deserves special accolades for winning the IHSA Class 2A state football title. The Comets defeated the Staunton Bulldogs in convincing fashion, 40-13, on the day after Thanksgiving. Staunton actually had an early 7-6 lead before Newman uncorked a dominating offensive and defensive performance, setting 2A title game records for most rushing yards gained (425) and least rushing yards allowed an opponent (13). This marked Newmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fifth state football title since 1990. The team and its 34-year veteran coach, Mike Papoccia, deserve praise for their outstanding season. Likewise, we congratulate Dr. Joseph Welty, a doctor at KSB Hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Town Square Centre Clinic, on being named Family Physician of the

Year by the Illinois Academy of Family Physicians. Welty, an Amboy native, has practiced medicine for 28 years in Dixon. Known for the personal approach he takes with patients, Welty also has served as team physician for the Newman Comets football team. We gratefully note Dr. Weltyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assistance with Sauk Valley Mediaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s series of articles about concussions last year. A veteran Dixon attorney, Henry S. Dixon, has received a special award from the Illinois State Bar Association. Dixon was one of 146 lawyers to be named Distinguished Counsellors for completing 50 years of practice. He is the only attorney in the Sauk Valley to receive the honor this year. Dixon, a descendant of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s founder, is a senior partner in the Dixon & Giesen Law Offices and also served a total of 8 years as Lee County stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney. We congratulate a championship football team, a distinguished physician, and a veteran attorney for their accomplishments.

Compare his words to the public records MARK MILLER Nelson

Mr. Coltrain says â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am not a troublemakerâ&#x20AC;? to the judge. OK, so I have to ask someone to print

out any public records involving him and the law enforcement community. Then, have him repeat all those to the judge before he says, once again, that he is not a troublemaker. Maybe in Judge Judyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s courtroom, it might work, but seriously, save it for Comedy Central.

Give a non-traditional gift this Christmas: Forgiveness Letting go of negative emotions is beneficial CARA ALLEN Sciota

You may think of forgiveness as a gift that costs you more than youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re willing to give. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a gift that uniquely blesses the giver and receiver. Although forgiveness is a non-traditional holiday gift, one that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wrap up and put under a tree, it may be appreciated more than any other gift youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever offered. In making the decision to forgive, you decide not to hold a grudge toward someone who has hurt you. It also means initiating the process of changing your emotions toward the hurtful event by letting go and choosing to remember the hurt in a healthy way. Forgiveness does not mean forgetting, con-

doning, or excusing the wrong. Although you may think of forgiveness as something that you do for others, it is actually a very important gift that you give yourself. Cara The process Allen of forgiveness has many benefits for physical and emotional health. SOCIAL SCIENTISTS have found that choosing to forgive can lead to better brain functioning, reduced risk factors for heart disease and high blood pressure, less depression, repaired social relationships, increased likableness, and protection from unhealthy relationships. So, how do we forgive, especially when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been deeply hurt or betrayed? The forgiveness process includes recognizing the negative emotions we are experiencing and deciding to forgive.

This may happen only after we have recognized how much we are harming ourselves in not forgiving. We also may come to realize that we ourselves are not above needing forgiveness. Forgiveness is a process, and it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen in an instant. First, we choose to forgive and let go of the negative thoughts and emotions that we replay, sometimes over and over, about the wrong that has been done to us. When negative thoughts come back, you may think â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forgive.â&#x20AC;? But forgiveness isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a feeling. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a choice, and you can learn from the experience and find meaning in the process. Factors that hinder our ability to forgive include the fear that offering forgiveness will increase the chance of being hurt again; the fear we will appear weak; the fear that justice will not be served or we will lose our victim status; and the fear of letting go of the

The process of forgiveness has many benefits for physical and emotional health.

anger (anger can serve as a protection against further hurt and pain). You may also consider it too unfair or excessive to forgive. FORGIVENESS IS seldom an easy process because it means letting go of a debt that we feel is owed us by another. But we were not created to carry the kind of weight that negative emotions bring us. The benefits of letting go and offering forgiveness are gifts worth giving to others and to yourself.

Wind energy yields benefits to environment LISA NIKODEM Chicago

Wind energy is on the rise in Illinois and is providing huge environmental benefits for the state. Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wind energy is already avoiding more than 4.6 million metric tons of climatealtering carbon pollution â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the equivalent of taking 971,000 cars off the road, while saving 2 billion gallons of water a year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; enough to meet the needs of 63,000 people.

Because of its current and future benefits, wind power is a key component of President Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Climate Action Plan to reduce the carbon pollution, which is fueling global warming, by 17 percent by 2020. The plan calls for an expansion of renewable energy, investment in energy efficiency, and the first-ever federal limits on carbon pollution from power plants. The report, Wind Energy for a Cleaner America, also shows that todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wind energy in Illinois avoids 4,300 tons of smog-causing nitrogen oxides and 5,400 tons of sulfur dioxide,

which cause acid rain and soot. Wind energy is now providing 7.7 million megawatt-hours of electricity in Illinois. If state and federal officials commit to continued progress, Illinois could reduce the carbon pollution equivalent of more than 780,000 passenger vehicles, and save enough water to meet the annual water needs of nearly 58,000 people. Illinoisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent progress on wind is the direct result of federal production tax credit for wind power, which is set to expire at the end of 2013.

DAY TRIP

Decorated trees grace presidential site Herbert Hoover Museum puts on its holiday cheer BY ANDREA MILLS amills@saukvalley.com 800-798-4085, ext. 575

If you go

T

he halls are decked and the trees are wearing their holiday apparel at the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library & Museum in West Branch, Iowa. Heartland Christmas is an annual exhibit featuring decorated trees. This year there are 20 representing life in Iowa. Visitors will be able to browse among the trees. The Iowa State Fair tree commemorates an event that has been in existence since 1854. It began in Fairfield, Iowa, and later was moved to Des Moines. The fair’s main focus is on agriculture and animals. The Star Trek tree gives guests a look at something not rooted in the soil of Iowa. It celebrates Riverside, Iowa, as the home of the fictional Capt. James T. Kirk of the USS Enterprise. Actually, Riverside will one day be the home of Kirk, who has not been born yet. Iowa keeps an eye on the future with this fictional TV and movie character. The Heritage tree is a little of everything. It brings to mind the lands whose people left to make Iowa their home. The decorations honor countries such as Czechoslovakia, Sweden, Germany and Denmark. Looking at the Music tree reminds visitors of area musicians and their wide range of styles. Three of them have been selected for this tree: Bix Beiderbecke, Meredith Wilson, and Karl King.

What: Heartland Christmas When: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Jan. 2 Where: Herbert Hoover Library, 210 Parkside Drive, West Branch, Iowa Cost: Age 16 to 61 $6, age 62 and older $3, children 15 and younger, free Information: Visit www. hoover.archives.gov or call 319-643-5301 Sports-minded folk can turn to the Olympic tree, which proclaims the work of the state’s athletes, such as Shawn Johnson and Frank Irons. Among the remaining trees are themes representing Herbert and Lou Hoover, RAGBRAI, farming, Grant Wood, and even the Ringling Brothers Circus. The library and museum also contains exhibits to be explored that center around the life of Herbert Hoover. They can view his fishing cabin, see some of Lou Hoover’s dresses, and even take a look at the place where Hoover spent his last years. There are nine galleries, each exploring the passing of time in the life of the former president. Guests will walk into the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression, find out more about his wife, Lou; and his political career with its ups and downs. Not a bad way to spend the day in Iowa.

HOLIDAY SHOPPING

Many shoppers taking a retail holi-delay so far NEW YORK (AP) – Many Americans are watching the annual holiday spending ritual from the sidelines this year. Money is still tight for some. Others are fed up with commercialism of the holidays. Still others are waiting for bigger bargains. And people like LarkMarie Anton Menchini are more thoughtful about their purchases. The New York public relations executive says in the past she’d buy her children up to eight Christmas gifts each, but this year they’re getting three apiece. The leftover money is going toward their college savings. “We told them Santa is

... being very conscious of how many gifts he puts on his sleigh,” Menchini, 36, says. Despite an improving economy, most workers are not seeing meaningful wage increases. And those who can splurge say the brash commercialism around the holidays – many more stores are opening for business on Thanksgiving – is a turnoff. But perhaps the biggest factor is that shoppers are less motivated than ever by holiday sales. Since the Great Recession, retailers have been dangling more discounts throughout the year, so Americans have learned to hold out for even deeper holiday

savings on clothes, electronics and more. To stay competitive and boost sales, retailers are slashing prices further during their busiest season of the year, which is cutting into their own profit margins. There aren’t reliable figures on how many people plan to shop during the holidays. But early data points to a shift in holiday spending. The National Retail Federation estimates that sales during the start to the official start to season – the 4-day weekend that began on Thanksgiving Day – dropped 2.9 percent from last year to $57.4 billion. That would mark the first decline

in the 7 years the trade group has tracked spending. And during the week afterward – which ended on Sunday – sales fell another 2.9 percent compared with a year ago, according to data tracker ShopperTrak, which did not give dollar amounts. Meanwhile, the number of shoppers in stores plunged nearly 22 percent. The numbers are sobering for retailers, which depend on making up to 40 percent of their revenue in the last two months of the year. They suggest shifts in the attitudes of U.S. shoppers that could force stores to reshape their strategies.

AP

A customer places a boot back in the shoe section of the Macy’s Herald Square flagship store Nov. 28 in New York. The National Retail Federation estimates that sales over the 4-day 2013 holiday weekend including Thanksgiving declined 2.9 percent from last year, marking the first drop since the group began tracking the figure in 2006. Overall spending for November and December still is expected to increase 3.9, but whether that plays out remains to be seen.

Mild 2013 slows melting, but warming woes remain

Exercise helps women with breast cancer

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The rapid melting in the Arctic eased up this year. But the government says global warming is still dramatically altering the top of the world, reducing the number of reindeer and shrinking snow and ice, while increasing certain fish and extending the growing season. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issued its report card for the Arctic on Thursday, portraying 2013 as moderate compared with the roasting 2012. Overall Arctic temperatures didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t soar quite as high, and Greenland ice sheets and summer sea ice didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t melt as much. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Arctic caught a break, if you will, in 2013, but one year doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change the long-term trend toward a warmer Arctic,â&#x20AC;? said report card editor Martin Jeffries, a University of Alaska geophysicist who is the science adviser to the U.S. Arctic

SAN ANTONIO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Exercise might help women beat breast cancer. Researchers found it can ease the achy joints and muscle pain that lead many patients to quit taking medicines that treat the disease and lower the risk of a recurrence. The study is the first major test of an exercise

program for women on aromatase inhibitors. These estrogen-blocking pills, sold as Femara, Aromasin and other brands, are recommended for 5 years after initial breast cancer treatment for hormone-driven tumors. The pills also increasingly are being used to help prevent breast can-

cer in women at high risk of it because of family history, bad genes or other reasons. A separate study found that one of these medicines â&#x20AC;&#x201C; anastrozole, sold as Arimidex and in generic form â&#x20AC;&#x201C; cut this risk by 53 percent. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the second aromatase inhibitor shown to lower risk that much.

This handout photo provided by The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) shows Arctic sea ice earlier this year. Scientists spent 3 weeks in the region analyzing conditions, as recent reductions in sea ice in the autumn months impacts weather patterns regionally and perhaps farther afield. Research Commission. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Arctic has shifted to a new normal,â&#x20AC;? Jeffries said at the American Geophysical Union scientific conference in San Francisco, where the 136-page report card was released. While 2013 looks a tad cool compared with the past 6 years, it is unusually warm compared with the 20th century, he said.

Central Alaskaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer was one of the warmest on record, coming months after its coldest April since 1924, NOAA said. Fairbanks experienced a record 36 days of more than 80 degrees. And snow cover in May and June was near record low levels in North America and broke a record for the least snow in Eurasia.

WASHINGTON

Budget peace breaks out as House OKs plan Senate passage expected next week W A S H I N G T O N ( AP ) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Battle-fatigued and suddenly bipartisan, the House voted Thursday night to ease across-the-board federal spending cuts and head off future government shutdowns, acting after Speaker John Boehner unleashed a stinging attack on tea party-aligned conservative groups campaigning for the measureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defeat. The legislation, backed by the White House, cleared on a vote of 33294, with lopsided majorities of Republicans and Democrats alike voting in favor. Final passage is expected next week in the Senate. The events in the House gave a light coating of bipartisan coop-

eration to the end of a bruising year of divided government â&#x20AC;&#x201C; memorable for a partial government shutdown, flirtation with an unprecedented Treasury default and gridlock on immigration, gun control and other items on President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second-term agenda. Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s press secretary, Jay Carney, hailed the vote, saying it â&#x20AC;&#x153;shows Washington can and should stop governing by crisis and both sides can work together to get things done.â&#x20AC;? Minutes after the budget action, the House approved a broad military policy bill that aims to curb sexual assaults, cover combat pay for U.S. forces and fund new aircraft and ships. That vote,

an obstacle to him than Democrats. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re misleading their followers,â&#x20AC;? the Republican speaker said of the groups, whom he pointedly also blamed for last fallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s politically damaging partial government shutdown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pushing our members in places where they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be. And frankly, I just think that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lost all credibilityâ&#x20AC;? by opposing legislation before the details are known.â&#x20AC;? He mentioned no organizations by name, although it appeared he was referring to Heritage Action and Club for Growth, both of which have sought to push the House further to the right than the Republican leadership has been willing to go. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis.,

a chief GOP architect of the deal, made the conservativesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; case for support. The measure â&#x20AC;&#x153;reduces the deficit by $23 billion. It does not raise taxes and it cuts spending in a smarter way,â&#x20AC;? said the Budget Committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chairman, whose handiwork could well be challenged in the 2016 Republican presidential primaries. The second-ranking Democrat, Rep. Steny Hoyer of Maryland, joined other party leaders in swinging behind the measure, even though he noted that he represents 62,000 federal workers and said future government employees will pay higher pensions costs because of the bill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This agreement is better than the alternativeâ&#x20AC;? of ever deeper across-the-board cuts, he said.

WASHINGTON

Boehner takes aim at GOP critics on right Republican leader says groups have â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;lost all crediblityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frankly, I just think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lost all credibility,â&#x20AC;? he said of the foes. Heritage Action was a key force behind the â&#x20AC;&#x153;defund Obamacareâ&#x20AC;? effort that swept the right earlier this year and steamrolled stumbling House GOP leaders into Octoberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s government shutdown fiasco. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pushing our members into places where they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be,â&#x20AC;? Boehner complained Thursday. Boehner is the latest in a line of establishment Republicans and their allies to mount counterattacks against tea party purists who are pushing the party to the right by stoking intra-GOP battles and primary challenges against longstanding incumbents such as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and Rep. Mike Simpson of Idaho. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yesterday, when the criticism was coming, frankly I thought it was my job and my obligation to stand up for conservatives here in the Congress who want more deficit reduction,â&#x20AC;? Boehner said. Club for Growth, which bundles contributions for the free-market conservatives it endorses and runs ads on their behalf, is supporting Simpsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primary opponent.

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; After years of bitter friction within Republican circles, House Speaker John Boehner is lashing out against hard-line conservative and tea party groups â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the latest GOP establishment figure to join the increasingly public battle roiling the party. For the second day in a row â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but at greater length and with more passion â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Ohio Republican on Thursday lit into groups such as Heritage Action and Club for Growth. Though naming no names, he accused such groups and others of stirring up opposition on the right to a budget bill worked out with Democrats that would replace some across-the-board spending cuts now in place with longer-term savings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When groups come out and criticize an agreement that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never seen, you begin to wonder just how credible those actions are,â&#x20AC;? he told reporters. That was just hours before the House was to vote on the bill, which also would raise government fees on airline tickets as well as pension insurance premiums on employers.

SUSPECTED TERRORIST

Sign interpreter cites schizophrenia â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;White widowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; eludes Man says he was hearing voices, seeing angels -#4.EWS3ERVICE

JOHANNESBURG â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The sign language interpreter who stood a few feet from President Barack Obama and other world leaders during Nelson Mandelaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memorial service acknowledged Thursday being a schizophrenic with a history of violence. Thamsanqa Jantjie told South African media he had a full-blown episode while he was standing on the stage during Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memorial, seeing angels flying into the stadium and hearing voices. He said he lost concentration and, as panic rose, kept gesturing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was nothing I could do. I was alone in

Thamsanqa Jantjie gestures at his home Thursday during an interview with The Associated Press in Johannesburg. Jantjie, the man accused of faking sign interpretation next to world leaders during Nelson Mandelaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memorial, told a local newspaper that he was hallucinating and hearing voices. a very dangerous situa- became violent during tion,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I tried to schizophrenic episodes, control myself and not Jantjie said â&#x20AC;&#x153;a lot.â&#x20AC;?

Asked how often he The episode during the

memorial might have been brought on by the momentous occasion or his happiness to be there, Jantjie, 34, told the Star newspaper. Members of South Africaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deaf community had reacted angrily to Jantjieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interpretation, which was broadcast on television, saying his signing made no sense and he did not know the gesture for â&#x20AC;&#x153;South Africaâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;thank you.â&#x20AC;? Instead, they said, he signed the words for prawns and rocking horses. In interviews with South African journalists Thursday, Jantjie said he was deeply embarrassed and terrified his children would see his humiliation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Life is unfair,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This illness is unfair. Anyone who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand this illness will think that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just making this up.â&#x20AC;?

authorities in Africa AYLESBURY, England (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; She is called the most wanted woman in the world, a suspected terrorist charged with plotting to blow up resort hotels in Kenya packed with Christmas tourists, a Westerner who wrote an ode praising Osama bin Laden, a jihadist who has eluded the law even as she has traveled through Africa with four young children in tow. Samantha Lewthwaiteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s saga is one of betrayal and revenge in a murky world where, somehow, a white woman born to a British soldier becomes a Muslim convert and then an international fugitive accused of conspiracy. Her first husband blew himself up as part of Britainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst ever terrorist attack in 2005, an act she first condemned â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and

her second partner adhered to the same militant brand of Islam and Samantha also apparLewthwaite e n t l y m e t an early death. Her notebooks, seized in 2011, are filled with lavish praise for extremists who slaughter civilians and hopes that her children will do the same. And yet, since she disappeared some months after the London bombing, no one can say how the â&#x20AC;&#x153;white widowâ&#x20AC;? became radicalized, moving from mainstream Islam to a â&#x20AC;&#x153;holy warâ&#x20AC;? against the West â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or why she would embrace a movement that denies a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right to education and other basic liberties.

FILM AWARDS

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;12 Years a Slave,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hustleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; top varied Globes field 4HE!SSOCIATED0RESS

Heaping seven nominations on both the con-artist melodrama â&#x20AC;&#x153;American Hustleâ&#x20AC;? and the grimly historical â&#x20AC;&#x153;12 Years a Slave,â&#x20AC;? the Golden Globes nominations set up a showdown of contrasts: comedy and drama, light and dark, white and black.

The two films were validated as Academy Awards front-runners in the Globes nominations announced Thursday in Beverly Hills, Calif., by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, refining what had been a scattered awards season in a year many consider encouragingly plentiful

of worthy movies. The differences between the two topnominees are vast. While David O. Russellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fictionalized caper â&#x20AC;&#x153;American Hustleâ&#x20AC;? takes a playful, exaggerated approach to an already outlandish story (the FBIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scandal-uncovering Abscam investiga-

tion in the disco 1970s), Steve McQueenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;12 Years a Slave,â&#x20AC;? based on Solomon Northupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1853 memoir, is unflinching in its portrait of Southern slavery â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a subject Hollywood has seldom depicted rigorously or truthfully. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel this film is pivotal and just good for

Cutler will start Sunday

Pressure sinks Clippers

Trestman confirms QB’s return to field

Prophets’ press too much for Amboy

BY KEVIN FISHBAIN Shaw Media

LAKE FOREST – The players are the same, but Jay Cutler is inheriting a better offense as he retakes the reins Sunday in Cleveland. Bears coach Marc Trestman made it official Thursday that Cutler will start against the Browns for the first time since suffering a high-ankle sprain Nov. 10. As superb as Josh McCown has been in Cutler’s place, the players around him also have improved. “Jay was handling this offense very, very well when he was playing. We were growing at the time, we were learning more about ourselves,” Trestman said. “We’re more evolved around Jay than we were when Jay played the last time.” CUTLER CONTINUED ON B2

DIXON – The consensus after the first game of Thursday’s dual bowling match between Dixon and Sterling was that it was time to make some adjustments. Sterling took the first game between the two early leaders in the NIB-12, but Dixon rallied to sweep the last two for a 3,105-2,797 win. “We just had to come together and stay positive,” Dixon senior Jenna Longan said about the

first game that the Duchesses lost 926-908. “We knew that we could do better. “Winning this means a lot, because they are our rival,” Longan said. “But with this being my senior year, I really want to be on the top of the conference.” Dixon took eight of the 10 conference points. That puts the Duchesses in sole possession of first place with a total record of 34-6. Sterling drops behind at 28-12. ADJUSTED CONTINUED ON B5

PROPHETSTOWN – The pressure put on by the Prophets in the second half shut the door on the Amboy Clippers, as Prophetstown went on to secure a 42-19 win Thursday night. In a scrappy, get-after-it kind of game, senior Karlie Stafford led the way for Kaitlyn the Prophets in Leibing the first half. She Amboy paced her team, junior scoring all eight of her points in the first two quarters. “Karlie stepped up for us in the first half,” Prophetstown coach Don Robinson said. “And that helped us get just enough of a lead, where if we got a few more breaks, we could maybe spread our offense.” Amboy (7-3, 3-1 Three Rivers North) hung around and only trailed 20-12 going into the half.

STERLING – Newman outscored Fulton by a point in the 10 contested bouts, but two forfeit wins propelled the Steamers to victory in a Three Rivers North dual on Thursday. Fulton rode four pins and the two forfeits to a 39-28 win over the Comets at Newman. “We had a lot of gutchecks tonight,” Steamers coach Chris Grant said. “A lot of our new kids had to come through, and they wrestled with heart. They put in the hard work, and it showed tonight.” Tthe Steamers got three pins at three of the four heaviest

Dailey led 16-9 after a threepoint near fall, but Ford turned the tables with a reversal, then stuck Dailey to the mat for a pin with just 9 seconds left in the second period. “That was a crazy match,” said Ford, who just returned from illness and a knee injury. “I was hoping not to injure my knee again.

Cutler returning to better offense CUTLER

CONTINUED FROM B1

The offensive line, with two rookies and four new players, keeps getting better, as Trestman singled out that group for getting a chance to be together longer. The offense also has benefited from Trestman getting used to his players. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think [Trestman], for the last month, has really got a bead and got a feel for what he likes to call, what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re running well, what we feel comfortable with, what the offensive line likes in the running game,â&#x20AC;? Cutler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Aaron Kromer]â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done

a good job of mixing that stuff up. â&#x20AC;Ś Cleveland is a tough team; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to have to get ready for them.â&#x20AC;? Cutler, from the sideline, saw a positive impact in the run game from the improving offensive line when McCown was under center. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[The offensive line] is playing exceptionally well. I think [Matt] Forte is doing everything well â&#x20AC;&#x201C; blocking, running the ball, catching the ball out of the backfield,â&#x20AC;? Cutler said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of making it all go for us.â&#x20AC;? The stats back it up, too, and though some

can look at it as a result of McCownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s play, the Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; brass points to the evolving offense. When taking into account Cutlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seven starts, plus the first half of the Redskins game, the Bears averaged 94.9 yards a game and 4.1 yards a carry. In McCownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s five starts and the second half in Washington, the ground game averaged 137.3 yards a contest and 5.1 yards a touch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think our offense is moving in the right direction as a whole â&#x20AC;&#x201C; blocking, running, catching, throwing,â&#x20AC;? Kromer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, as we progress and continue to grow as an

offense, I think that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll all have more success as time goes.â&#x20AC;? Briggs returns: Lance Briggs practiced for the first time since his shoulder injury Oct. 20 in Washington, but was limited. Trestman said he is not any more optimistic about Briggsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; chances to play Sunday, but this is a positive sign for a return for the Eagles game. Browns injuries: Cleveland running back Willis McGahee did not practice for the second day in a row (concussion, knee), and is not expected to play Sunday. Chris Ogbonnaya would get the start.

BELOW: Newmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hunter Webb uses the half-nelson on Fultonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jake Hoffman in the 120-pound bout. Webb pinned Hoffman in 1:57.

Snow wins first match of season PINNING

CONTINUED FROM B1

Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teammates Zach Jenkins and Steven Balk earned pins at 220 and 285, respectively. That helped Fulton (2-4) take an 18-6 lead after the meet started at 170 pounds, with Newmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bryce Ivey earning a pin. There was a double-forfeit at 195. Steamers freshman Brandon Kaecker got a pin at 106 to make it 24-6. After another doubleforfeit, the Comets (0-7) got their second win via a pin by Hunter Webb at 120. Fultonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first forfeit win, and the Steamersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Cole Grantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 7-2 decision over Eli Monier at 132, boosted the margin to 33-12. Newman won the next three matches. Elias Edmondson won a major decision at 138, former state champion Jake Snow got his first action of the season and earned

a pin at 145, and Brandon Ahlgrimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pin at 152 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Newmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth pin â&#x20AC;&#x201C; brought the Comets within 33-28. But, the second forfeit loss anticlimactically ended things. Snow, who, like many of his teammates, got a late start due to Newmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s state football title, was dominant, scoring three quick takedowns before pinning Fultonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sam Grant in 55 seconds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It felt really good,â&#x20AC;?

Snow said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been able to do it for a while. Seven months off and you kind of lose your land legs. To go out there and perform like I did felt pretty good.â&#x20AC;? Newman was without standout Brady Rude, who was at the meet but has been sick of late. The Comets are also without 126-pounder Andrew Kobbeman, who broke a leg last week and is out for the season. Comets coach Steve

Davis had mixed emotions about his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got two different teams,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got some kids that lack a lot of experience, and then some kids that are really good. You see some outstanding wrestling, and then some guys who need a little help. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult to coach.â&#x20AC;? Camanche, Iowa, was supposed to make the meet a double-dual but did not show up.

Keeping only one might be wise

Grizzwells by Bill Schorr

H.L. Mencken said, “An idealist is one who, on noticing that a rose smells better than a cabbage, concludes that it will also make better soup.” Or maybe that is someone who jumps too quickly to conclusions, which is also not a good idea at the bridge table. In today’s deal, South is in seven spades. West leads the heart queen. How should declarer deliberate? North’s raise to three spades promised some points. South’s plunge into seven spades was optimistic because he knew that he could not reach the dummy unless it contained the heart

queen or a heart shortage. It would have been wiser to stop in six – except that that would have ruined the column. Someone who is impulsive

will win with his heart ace, cash the diamond ace and heart king, then ruff a heart on the board. But East would overruff to defeat the contract. Yes, South needs to ruff a heart and discard his second low heart on the diamond king, but he needs only one trump for one ruff. So, he should start by drawing two rounds of trumps. Then he unblocks the diamond ace, cashes the second top heart, and ruffs a heart in the dummy. Here, his care is rewarded when East has doubletons in both majors. South pitches his last heart on a high diamond, ruffs a diamond back to his hand, draws West’s last trump, and claims. A broad smile is permitted from North. © 2013 UFS

CONTINUED FROM B1

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am still really pleased with where we are at,â&#x20AC;? Sterling coach Dennis Black said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With three new bowlers in the lineup, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be here at this point. But, they are better bowlers than they were 2 weeks ago, and they keep working hard. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lose tonight because of a lack of effort. We just need more experience.â&#x20AC;? Longan and freshman teammate Katlyn Bay both moved to the right on the boards throughout the day in order to find the pocket. It worked, as Longan went from two straight 165s to end with a 213 in the final game. That included finishing the day with four straight strikes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jenna is our most consistent bowler,â&#x20AC;? Dixon coach Larry LaCoursiere said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know that we can depend on her for that almost every day. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for the team to have someone like that out there.â&#x20AC;? Bay started slowly with a 136, but improved nearly 50 pins in each of the last two games. She hit a 183 in the second game, and, despite

Dixonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jenna Longan bowls against Sterling on Thursday at Plum Hollow. Dixon won 3,1052,797. a 7-10 split on her second throw in the 10th frame, she still finished with a 222 game. Dixon had three 200 individual games in the final team game, including Emily Quacoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 234. Dixonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pin total was 1,168 in the final game. Longan had high series at 543, followed by Bay at 541, and Ashley Currier at 535.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We definitely can build off this,â&#x20AC;? Bay said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know that we can bowl this well, and it will give us confidence for our next match by finishing like that.â&#x20AC;? Like Bay and Longan, Sterlingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Magan Tintori was shaking her head through most of the first game. Tintori and Destinee Howard are the two heavy hitters in the Warriorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lineup. Howard started strong with a 215 and finished with a 566 series. Tintori opened with a 127, but rebounded with games of 233 and 244 for a team-high series of 614. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She looked at me toward the end of the first game and asked what she could do,â&#x20AC;? Black said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just told her to move between the second and third arrows. She threw a strike on the first ball, so I said just stay there.â&#x20AC;? Erin Tabor added a 500 series, while newcomers Sydney Segretto (393), Paige Bauser (367) and Athziri Quintero (357) struggled in the big-match atmosphere. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought there might be a little more nerves than there were,â&#x20AC;? Tintori said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this is something that we can all learn from. We just have to keep on working on getting better, and I think we will be fine.â&#x20AC;?

Prophets pull away after halftime PRESSURE

CONTINUED FROM B1

The Prophets (8-2, 4-0) cranked up the pressure on defense, which caused trouble for the Clippers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a lot of pressure,â&#x20AC;? Amboy coach Mike McCracken said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We withstood it pretty well in the first half, and they came out of it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Second half, they came out, they turned up the pressure, and we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t handle the ball well.â&#x20AC;? That pressure was

spearheaded by the fullcourt press, which led to deflections, loose balls, jump balls ... and bodies flying everywhere. Emotion toward the game was evident, as neither team wanted to be outhustled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coach Robinson just told us that we really needed to step up our game,â&#x20AC;? Stafford said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We needed to work hard in the third quarter, and we put on the fullcourt press.â&#x20AC;? As a result, the Prophets started to pull away, as they held a steady

32-16 lead heading into the final quarter. In the fourth, the pressure was lightened by the Prophets, and they took a new approach: controlling the ball. Possession after possession, they settled into their offense, full of backdoor cuts. Stafford and Clare Kramer were the centerpieces, and had numerous assists to their quick guards for layups. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coach has always told us that those are big plays in the game,â&#x20AC;? Stafford said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will need that in a big type

of game. I saw them running open toward the hoop, and just tried to snap it back to them. They [Amboy] were getting frustrated by that.â&#x20AC;? Five baskets were scored using the tactic, giving the Prophets more than enough insurance to seal the win. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We needed all 10 girls to help us get this victory,â&#x20AC;? Robinson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Amboy and us are grinders, and sometimes these games arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pretty. We just had to hang in there, grind, and get after every loose ball.â&#x20AC;?

Cubs reel in Ruggiano New outfielder wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t affect Lakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development BY MARK GONZALES #HICAGO4RIBUNE

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; After balancing the Cubsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lineup Thursday morning, general manager Jed Hoyer said the team could receive some gifts for Christmas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There will be good things that come out of these [winter] meetings over the next few weeks,â&#x20AC;? Hoyer said after acquiring right-handed hitting outfielder Justin Ruggiano from the Marlins for left-handed hitting outfielder Brian Bogusevic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be surprised if that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen, given the discussions you have. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope some of the things we have started [here] will get done quickly.â&#x20AC;? The latest deal is for the 31-year-old Ruggiano, who joins left-handed hitters Ryan Sweeney and Nate Schierholtz in the outfield. Ruggiano has batted .281 with a .365 on-base percentage and .589 slugging percentage the last two seasons against left-handers.

AP

The Cubs traded for right-handed hitting outfielder Justin Ruggiano on Thursday, sending left-handed hitting outfielder Brian Bogusevic to the Marlins. Ruggiano should benefit playing outside of Marlins Park, where he hit only three of his 18 home runs last season. Ruggiano batted .222 last season, thanks largely to a 42 at-bat hitless streak. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We like Bogusevic a lot, but we think [Ruggiano is] a better fit for our roster,â&#x20AC;? Hoyer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We get a guy who really hits left-handed pitching well. He can platoon with one of several guys we have, and play all three

outfield positions.â&#x20AC;? The trade wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t affect the development of 23-yearold outfielder Junior Lake, Hoyer stressed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Junior Lake is going to get a ton of playing time,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A player like him needs to get atbats and develop. I just think we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have kind of a veteran right-handed bat who can platoon and hit lefties. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only way Junior is going to get better is by playing.â&#x20AC;?

snapped Denverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10-game AFC West winning streak. Denverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smooth road to the AFC West title and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs got bumpier. The Broncos now have as many losses as Kansas City and New England. They hold the tiebreaker against the Chiefs, but not the Patriots.
