Data shows the holiday season is a par‐ ticularly deadly time due to the in‐ creased number of drunk drivers on the roads, and the Montgomery Police De‐ partment is prepared to stop and arrest any drunk driver they see to keep roads safe. Research has shown that high-visibility enforcement like the 'Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over' campaign reduces drunken driving fatalities by as much as 20 per‐ cent. By joining this effort, we will help make Montgomery roads safer for every‐ one throughout the Holiday period. “Driving drunk is simply not worth the risk. S o don’t take the chance. Remember, we will be out in force and we will be watching, so ‘Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over,’” said Chief Daniel Meyers. e law enforcement crackdown is fund‐ ed by federal traffic safety funds through the Illinois Department of Transporta‐ tion.

No action is required on your part. Montgomery Police Cracking Down on Drunk Drivers this Holiday Season From December 20 through January 5 of the New Year, the Montgomery Police will be out in force as part of the annual Illinois “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” crackdown on drunk drivers. e statewide crackdown will include highvisibility alcohol and seat belt enforce‐ ment throughout Montgomery. e statewide crackdown will also be supported by national and state paid ad‐ vertising, creating a comprehensive cam‐ paign to curb drunk driving during the holiday season. e Montgomery Police Department said its officers will be aggressively look‐ ing for drunk drivers during the crack‐

  15. 15. 16 Kendall Weekly Times Chicago Bears still in the Hunt by Dick Kolf e Chicago Bears came into Monday night’s contest with their backs to the wall at 6-6 the Bears were in a must win position.. eir opponent the Dallas Cowboys came in at 7 and 5 in a similar position the Bears found themselves in order to keep their post season dreams alive. So the Bears offense showed up behind the playmaking of Josh Mccown the 34 year old journeyman quarterback who has been filling in for Jay Cutler . With a 48-25 win the Bears are now at 7 and 6 2nd in the NFC North and are poised to make a final run at the Playoffs. In the win Mcowan threw for over 400 yards, Running back Matt Forte surpassed a 1000 yards for the season ; wide receiver Brandon Marshall also eclipsed the 1000 mark for the season becoming the first Bear receiver to accomplish this feat two years in a row. However the Bears are now faced with a question of who to play at Quarterback. Cutler is set to return however Mcowan has done the job in relief of the injured starter throwing for over 300 yards in 4 of his five starts. So Marc Trestman will have to address this before they take on the Brown this Sunday. e defense still continues to struggle in stopping the pass however on Monday night he Bears did get pressure on Cow‐ boy’s Quarterback Tony Romo. So with an improved defense and the Browns next up the Bears will need to continue to win in order to keep pace with the Li‐ ons . e path to the post season is in winning the Division.

Trestman is showing loyalty to his open‐ ing day starter, and it worked in Cutler's favor that he was playing well before thumb and ankle injuries sidetracked his season. Josh McCown Cutler returns aer missing the last four games due to a high-ankle sprain. Mc‐ Cown powered the offense in his place, boasting a 66.8 completion percentage, 13:1 touchdown-to-interception ratio and seven consecutive games with a passer rating over 90.0. Trestman announced ursday that Cut‐ ler will be under center when the Chica‐ go Bears visit theCleveland Browns on Sunday. Josh McCown heads back to the bench aer an extended stretch of excel‐ e high point came Monday, a 45-28 win in which McCown dissected an overmatched Dallas secondary. As Chris Wesseling pointed out that night, Mc‐ Cown's late-bloomer act recalls memo‐ • By Dan Hanzus with the Bear Re‐ port Marc Trestman consistently maintained that Jay Cutler would resume his duties as starting quarterback of the Chicago Bears once he was healthy enough to do so. e coach has proved himself to be a man of his word. McCown passed his audition with flying colors and has given Chicago plenty to think about with Cutler headed toward free agency. Now Cutler gets his turn to make a statement about his importance to the franchise. He's fortunate, too. Not every coach would be so willing to go away from a hand as scorching as McCown's.
  16. 16. Kendall Weekly Times Chicago Bulls Beat by Evie Givens Bulls find themselves at 8 and 12 mid‐ way through December and are still try‐ ing to figure out life without Derrick Rose. Losing a player of his caliber is hard to replace however coming into the season the front office was counting on contributions from the front court of Carlos Boozer and Deng to help fill in the scoring gaps. Kurt Heinrich was also being called on to help fill the void in case Rose was not healthy. So the Bulls are now trying to figure out the guard position. Injuries are stacking up with Center Joachim Noah so where do the Bulls turn to find that formula that will help prepare them for the post season. e last two years the Bulls have underperformed in terms of not making it back to the Eastern Conference finals. Injuries have derailed them the last two seasons and the trend continues. With that all being said here are some bright spots helping the Bulls. Joachim Noah rebounding; Mike Dunleavy scor‐ ing and Kurt Heinrich defense have helped the Bulls to begin the process of recovering. e Front office is looking for a backup point guard and one more scoring option off the Bench. When the Bulls are healthy they are one of the tougher teams in the League. ere is still time for them to make their move for the post season. However let’s not wait too long. 17
  17. 17. 18 Crawford to miss ree Weeks Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford will be sidelined about three weeks with a lower-body injury, Black‐ hawks coach Joel Quenneville said Tues‐ day. Kendall Weekly Times "Well, he's handled it well. He's been in the net. Game's been on the line, he's been solid for us. Just moving forward, you like his approach, you like his com‐ petitiveness," Quenneville said. "He's a battler. It'll be a good test for him as well." And it's an opportunity Raanta is em‐ bracing. Once the Chicago Blackhawks started rolling, Ray Emery never stood a chance. Duncan Keith and Andrew Shaw scored in a 39-second span at the start of Chica‐ go's five-goal second period Wednesday night, sparking the Blackhawks to a 7-2 victory over Emery and the Philadelphia Flyers. More On e Blackhawks Crawford was injured in the first period of the Blackhawks' game Sunday against the Florida Panthers and did not travel with his teammates to Dallas. Antti Raanta replaced Crawford in the 6-2 win against the Panthers and will start Tuesday against the Dallas Stars. Kent Simpson has been recalled from the American Hockey League to serve as the backup. Regular backup Nikolai Khabibulin is out with a lower-body in‐ jury. Quenneville has no reservations about starting the rookie Raanta, who is 3-0-1 with a 2.16 goals-against average. "Just have to keep working hard and keep earning the minutes," Raanta said. "Even though I maybe have the No. 1 spot now, it's nothing if you go there and you're not ready to play. So you just have to keep your mind and body ready to play and keep working hard." Hawks Beat from the Bleacher Report CHICAGO -- ere was a long slap shot, and then a niy wraparound and a short-handed score off a 2-on-1 break. Patrick Sharp had a goal and two assists for Chicago, which has won three in a row aer a three-game losing streak. Michal Handzus scored a short-handed goal in the second and Marian Hossa had three assists, helping rookie goal‐ tender Antti Raanta win his second con‐ secutive start in place of injured Corey Crawford. "We have a quiet confidence we can score goals," Keith said. "Our talk in the room is more about playing the right way, being good defensively, being hard on pucks, checking well. We know our offense is going to take care of itself if we play that way." e seven goals set a season high for the Blackhawks (23-6-5), who have scored 19 times during their winning streak and lead the NHL with 129 goals. Shaw's sharp wraparound at 1:22 of the second made it six players with at least 10 goals for the defending Stanley Cup champi‐ ons, who are once again on top of the league standings with 51 points. "It's a credit to our team game," Sharp said. "We know we've got guys in here that can put up big numbers and score goals. But when we're playing well in all three zones, that's when our offense usu‐ ally clicks." Emery was pulled in the third period of his first start in Chicago since he teamed with Crawford to give the Blackhawks one of the best goaltending tandems in the league last season. Emery went 17-1 with a sparkling 1.94 goals-against aver‐ age during his second year with Chicago and then signed a free-agent deal with Philadelphia in July. He received a standing ovation from the sellout crowd when he was recognized
  18. 18. Kendall Weekly Times on the overhead scoreboard during the first period. But his ninth start of the season took a turn for the worse when Chicago turned up the pressure in the second. Jakub Voracek and Steve Downie scored power-play goals for the Flyers (13-15-3), who have lost three in a row and went 2-3-1 on a six-game road trip. "We made a few stupid mistakes," for‐ ward Wayne Simmonds said. "We weren't looking behind our backs and when you play a team like that they're going to capitalize." Voracek's wrister at 12:31 helped Philadelphia to a 1-0 lead aer one peri‐ od. e Blackhawks were coming off a 6-2 victory at Dallas on Tuesday night and looked a bit listless at the start of their first game against the Flyers since Jan. 5, 2012. at all changed in the second. Keith got it started with a big drive past Emery just 43 seconds into the period. en came Shaw's goal, and Handzus made it 3-1 when he scored his third on a break with Marcus Kruger. Downie's third goal momentarily slowed the Blackhawks' run. Kris Versteeg beat Emery off a terrific pass from Brandon Saad, and Sharp's slap shot went off Jonathan Toews and in to make it 5-2 at 14:15. "Great second period for us," Black‐ hawks coach Joel Quenneville said, "and it kind of went from there." Emery departed aer Brent Seabrook scored on a slap shot 65 seconds into the third. Emery finished with 12 saves. "You're going to be frustrated," Emery said. "ere's an old saying, 'You show me a good loser and I'll show you a loser.'" Raanta made 28 stops to improve to 5-0-1. He drew a large ovation from the crowd when he stopped Brayden Schenn and Michael Raffl on a pair of shorthanded breakaways in rapid succession in the third. 19
