NEED FOR DEMENTIA CAREGIVERS GROWS AS BOOMERS AGE

Tuesday, 17 December 2013 08:25 Published in Health & Fitness

ELMHURST, Ill. (AP) -- World leaders set a goal for a cure or treatment for dementia by 2025 at the recent G8 summit in London.

But for now, caregiving is among the most pressing issue for people with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.

The Chicago-based Alzheimer's Association says there are an estimated 15 million caregivers in the United States. And as baby boomers age and live longer, those numbers are expected to grow.

Katie Halloran, a 29-year-old teacher from suburban Chicago, is one of those caregivers.

She races home each day to her 62-year-old father Mike, who has Alzheimer's, to take over for his paid caregiver. As his condition worsens, she and her siblings are considering full-time care - a move Katie dreads.

Senators edge Blues 3-2 in OT

Tuesday, 17 December 2013 00:05 Published in Sports
 
OTTAWA (AP) -- Cody Ceci scored his first NHL goal in overtime and the Ottawa Senators beat the St. Louis Blues 3-2 on Monday.
 
Ceci recovered a clearing attempt by the Blues and sent a wrist shot toward the St. Louis goal that beat Brian Elliott at 3:59 of the extra period.
 
Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Bobby Ryan scored in regulation for the Senators, who picked up points for the fifth time in their past six games.
 
Chris Stewart had both goals for the Blues and both came late in the second period and both were set up by Derek Roy.
 
Roy also took a hooking penalty in overtime, but the Senators were unable to take advantage.
 
Ryan scored a highlight-reel goal on a pass from Kyle Turris, who put the puck on Ryan's tape from 40 feet away to right in front of the St. Louis goal.
 
Ryan cut in front, went to his backhand and beat Elliott to tie the game 2-2. It was also the only goal of the third period and sent the game to overtime.
 
Goaltending played a key role throughout the game as Elliott dueled with Ottawa's Robin Lehner. Each made some big saves, especially through the first two periods.
 
Pageau beat Elliott early in the game as he found the back of the net over the Blues goalie's glove. Ryan set up the play from behind the net, finding Pageau in the slot.
 
That goal at 3:57 of the first stood up as the only goal until just 3:10 remained in the second when Stewart scored his first of two goals.
 
Roy made a long breakout pass to Stewart, who slid a backhand along the ice and through the legs of Lehner at the end of a breakaway.
 
With just 13 seconds remaining in the second, Brendan Morrow's miscue led to Stewart's go-ahead goal.
 
While behind the net, Morrow fanned on a pass attempt out front but the puck went directly to Roy at the side of the goal. Roy's no-look backhand pass was met with no hesitation as Stewart delivered a one-timer to the far side past Lehner for a 2-1 St. Louis lead.
 
Notes: Coming into Monday's game the Senators were 1-9-2 against the Western Conference while the Blues were 11-2-0 against the Eastern Conference. ... Scratches for the Senators were defensemen Marc Methot and Eric Gryba along with forward Matt Kassian. The Blues sat forwards Jaden Schwartz and Vladimir Sobotka plus defenseman Ian Cole. ... Senators coach Paul MacLean was drafted by the Blues in 1978. He was traded to Winnipeg before returning to St. Louis to play his final two seasons. MacLean played 115 games for the Blues and had 40 goals and 44 assists.

Smoking ban to be enforced at University of Illinois

Monday, 16 December 2013 10:39 Published in Local News
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) - The University of Illinois is preparing to go smoke-free.
The (Champaign) News-Gazette reports the state's flagship campus in Champaign-Urbana will ban smoking starting January 1. That's not sitting well with some tailgaters who say they want to light up.
Chris Roegge puffed on a cigar during the Illini's last home game and says he thinks the new ban is "kind of silly" and questioned how the school will enforce the new policy.
Champaign resident Dan Tappendorf said "political correctness has gone too far."
The campus already bans smoking inside buildings and within 25 feet of a building entrance.
A school spokeswoman says the smoking ban had been set to begin in November, but administrators decided to delay the change because "we didn't want to hit people right before finals."
