PROCESSION FOR MISSING KOREAN WAR SOLDIER

Reunited at last

Military pallbearers transfer the remains of U.S. Army Cpl. Donald MacLean from a hearse Wednesday at Justen Funeral Home in McHenry after a procession from O’Hare International Airport. MacLean was reported missing in 1950 while serving during the Korean War, and his remains were identified earlier this year. He will be buried with full military honors at the Windridge Memorial Park Cemetery at 1 p.m. Saturday.

Remains of veteran brought back to family By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com McHENRY – Patting the flag-draped coffin, Donna Mitchell told her twin brother to behave himself. Cpl. Donald Victor MacLean was reunited with Mitchell – his elder by three minutes – and the rest of his family Wednesday, 63 years after he was declared missing in action during the Korean War. “I’ve got my whole family with me, and that makes it a little easier,” Mitchell said. “But on the same hand, you know you can accept things the way they are. We don’t have to look no more.” MacLean’s remains were identified this year after new technology made it possible to match him with the remains of one of about 800 unidentified servicemen buried in the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Honolulu. He arrived Wednesday at O’Hare International Airport, and accompanied by the U.S. Army, Illinois Patriot Guard, Rolling Thunder Illinois, the McHenry County Sheriff’s Of-

WOODSTOCK – A slimmer budget developed by an increasingly cash-strapped McHenry County Mental Health Board was not austere enough for the County Board committee reviewing it. In an unprecedented move Wednesday, the Public Health and Human Services Committee voted, 3-2, against accepting the Mental Health Board’s proposed 2014 budget. The vote came after more than an hour of often testy and sometimes acrimonious debate that veered to ongoing criticisms of the agency rather than the topic of its spending plan next year as part of the County Board’s overall 2014 budget. As to what the rejection means, county staff members aren’t sure. Besides the complicated statutory relationship between the County Board and the Mental Health Board, no

Donna Kurtz, R-Crystal Lake, voted against the McHenry County Mental Health Board budget. one can remember the last time a County Board committee rejected an entity’s budget during the county budget development process. The Mental Health Board, facing shrinking revenues because of shriveling state aid and a decreasing property-tax base, proposed a budget that increases its disbursements to social service agencies while cutting its administrative costs and slashing its workforce by almost half. Funding for its 25 client agencies would increase from $8.4 million to $8.7 million, while its workforce would shrink from 33 to 19 full-time equivalents.

Obama says Syria carried out attack The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama on Wednesday declared unequivocally that the United States has “concluded” that the Syrian government carried out a deadly chemical weapons attack on civilians. But new hurdles emerged that appeared to slow the formation of an international coalition that could use military force to punish Syria. Obama did not present any direct evidence to back up his assertion that the Syrian government bears responsibility for the attack. While he said he is still evaluating possible military retaliation, the president vowed that any American response would send a “strong signal” to Syrian President

Bashar Assad. “We have concluded that the Syrian government in fact carried these out,” Obama said during an interview with PBS’ NewsHour. “And if that’s so, then there needs to be international consequences.” Earlier Wednesday, the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council failed to reach an agreement on a draft resolution from the British seeking authorization for the use of force. Russia, as expected, objected to international intervention. Obama administration officials said they would take action against the Syrian government even without the backing of allies or

Still dreaming 50 years after King speech In 50 years, no one has made a speech that has resonated more than the speech the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. made on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. A speech devoid of partisanship, malevolence, grandstanding and pettiness, delivered with such moral certainty, is a rarity in American discourse. King spoke to the heart of racism in a still-segregated society and demanded better for this nation. King began by noting that a century had passed since the Emancipation Proclamation but that “the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination.” Justice was still in the distance. But King was not without hope and “refused to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt.” He wasn’t alone, and he wasn’t wrong. King’s efforts and the efforts of others in the civ-

8LOTTERY

VIEWS Kevin Lyons il-rights movement led to the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to the Voting Rights Act of 1965. There is so much good in that speech that it seemed to be inspired from above, and we most recall the passages about King’s dream. “I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” Who wouldn’t share that dream today? And, outside of the darkest fringe of society, that dream has mostly materialized. I wasn’t born yet in 1963 but was fortunate to grow up in a world where we were taught not to

judge by skin color. My children don’t consider skin color any more telling than eye or hair color. What’s less quoted from King’s speech was his warning to other leaders and participants of the civil-rights movement to shun physical violence and to conduct their struggle on the “high plane of dignity and discipline.” “Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.” While those words were intended for those within the movement, they apply to all Americans. And I’m not sure how far we are yet in achieving that part of the dream. There is still too much bitterness and hatred among Americans when it comes to race. It rears its head in the aftermath of major media events – the Rodney King beating, the O.J. Simpson trial, and the Trayvon Martin shooting and George Zimmerman

verdict. Many still can’t separate the actions of one or a few from an entire race of people. It defies logic, but that tendency persists among a portion of American character that is still too loud to ignore. The bitterness and hatred lies within some of both whites and blacks. Whenever it manifests, you sigh and realize that as far as laws have come in outlawing discrimination, we still have some work to do. If King were alive today, I expect that he would have much more to say on that subject – and say it more articulately and passionately than this column is able to convey.

Scientists find clue to age-related memory loss By LAURAN NEERGAARD The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Scientists have found a compelling clue in the quest to learn what causes age-related memory problems, and to one day be able to tell if those misplaced car keys are just a senior moment or an early warning of something worse. Wednesday’s report offers evidence that age-related memory loss really is a distinct condition from pre-Alzheimer’s – and offers a hint that what we now consider the normal forgetfulness of old age might eventually be treatable. Researchers at Columbia University Medical Center

examined brains, young and old ones, donated from people who died without signs of neurologic disease. They discovered that a certain gene in a specific part of the hippocampus, the brain’s memory center, quits working properly in older people. It produces less of a key protein. That section of the brain, called the dentate gyrus, has long been suspected of being especially vulnerable to aging. Importantly, it’s a different neural neighborhood than where Alzheimer’s begins to form. But it’s circumstantial evidence that having less of that protein, named RbAp48, affects memory loss in older

adults. So the researchers took a closer look at mice, which become forgetful as they age in much the same way that people do. Sure enough, cutting levels of the protein made healthy young rodents lose their way in mazes and perform worse on other memory tasks just like old mice naturally do. More intriguing, the memory loss was reversible: Boosting the protein made forgetful old mice as sharp as the youngsters again, the researchers reported in the journal Science Translational Medicine. “It’s the best evidence so far” that age-related memory loss isn’t the same as early

Alzheimer’s, said Nobel laureate Dr. Eric Kandel, who led the Columbia University team. And since some people make it to 100 without showing much of a cognitive slowdown, the work begs another question: “Is that normal aging, or is it a deterioration that we’re allowing to occur?” Kandel said. “As we want to live longer and stay engaged in a cognitively complex world, I think even mild age-related memory decline is meaningful,” added Columbia neurologist Dr. Scott Small, a senior author of the study. “It opens up a whole avenue of investigation to now try to identify interventions.”

Ill. eyeing new day care nutrition regulations The ASSOCIATED PRESS SPRINGFIELD – State authorities are considering a series of proposals that would remove fatty and sugary snacks along with chocolate milk from day care centers in Illinois, while also banning the youngest children from watching television, officials said.

Other proposals would also mandate children go outside at least twice during the day – weather permitting – and forbid day care providers from rewarding children’s good behavior with food, according to a report by the Springfield bureau of Lee Enterprises newspapers. “By reaching out to the day care centers we’re changing

the way that kids are fed and cared for not just when they are at the center, but also when they are at home,” said Dave Clarkin, a spokesman for the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services. The series of rule changes were first recommended by the Illinois Early Learning Council and are now being re-

E. Bish said. Bank of America-owned Merrill Lynch – one of the world’s largest brokerages with more than 15,000 financial advisers – issued a statement Wednesday saying only, “We’re not at this point commenting on the existence of the settlement nor the status of a settlement.” Lead plaintiff George McReynolds accused Merrill Lynch of steering black brokers away from the most lucrative business and so, under a compensation system emphasizing production, they earned less than their white counterparts. They made 43 percent less in compensation on average in 2006, plaintiff filings allege.

8STATE BRIEFS Illinois crew battles Oregon wildfire SPRINGFIELD – Nearly 20 Illinoisans were members of a crew that spent two weeks battling a wildfire in southwestern Oregon. The crew worked on the Labrador Fire in the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest. The Illinois Department of Natural Resources sponsored the crew. It included nine IDNR staffers, four staff from the Shawnee National Forest in southern Illinois, four community firefighters, a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers employee, a Homewood city forester and a Geneseo contractor. They have all returned home. All crew members have training in wild land firefighting. They are reimbursed by the U.S. Forest Service.

Brokerage giant settles discrimination lawsuit CHICAGO – Lawyers for hundreds of black financial advisers have reached a $160 million settlement in a lawsuit accusing Wall Street brokerage giant Merrill Lynch of racial discrimination, a plaintiffs’ attorney said Wednesday.

Chicago turning old rail line into elevated park CHICAGO – Chicago is transforming an unused section of elevated railway into a tree-lined recreational trail linking five neighborhood parks. The nearly three-mile Bloomingdale Trail is being created out of a stretch of elevated track built a century ago. It runs west to east along Bloomingdale Avenue through West Side neighborhoods like Bucktown, Wicker Park, Logan Square and Humboldt Park. Workers broke ground Tuesday and expect to have the trail fully open by the fall of 2014.

Parents of 6-year-old Ill. boy thank his rescuers MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. – The parents of a 6-year-old Illinois boy who survived being buried beneath 11 feet of sand at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore for more than three hours last month have told rescuers they are eternally grateful. Faith Woessner of Sterling told more than 100 people involved in the rescue of her son, Nathan, that they will always be heroes to her family. She says the rescue increased her faith significantly. As her husband, Greg, looked out at the crowd gathered for the event Wednesday at the Blue Chip Casino, he said he realized Nathan was rescued because of their diligence. Nathan was pulled alive from the sand July 12. He was hospitalized for two weeks but has recovered and has started first grade.

viewed by a special legislative panel. If they’re approved, they could take effect in six to nine months. Specifically, the changes would ban children under the age of 2 from watching TV while they’re at day care. Older children would be limited to a single hour a day, but couldn’t watch television while they eat. Snacks that are

high in fat and sugar would be forbidden, while children also wouldn’t be allowed to have bottles while they’re in a crib. The rules would only apply to day care centers, meaning that in-home day care providers are excluded. The changes could affect about 300,000 children. Facilities that violate the rules would most likely have to file a corrective action

Tollway creates wall of shame The ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO – Striking back at drivers who routinely fail to pay up, the Illinois Tollway created a virtual wall of shame Wednesday on which it outed the worst offenders. The state agency posted the names of 157 companies on its website along with the amount of money it says each owes. To make the list, a person has to have racked up more than $1,000 in unpaid tolls and fines. Although only companies are listed, individual drivers could also find their names on the list. In the top spot was Landa Transport, a Frankfort-based trucking company that is on the hook for nearly $215,000,

the tollway says. The company didn’t respond to a phone message seeking comment. “If seeing your company’s name on this list becomes an incentive for you to pick up the phone and call us to settle your debt, then we’ve achieved our goal,” said the tollway’s executive director, Kristi Lafleur. The new webpage was sanctioned by a law Gov. Pat Quinn signed this week. Many of those named are construction and transportation companies. There is also a company that services elevators and one that cleans diamonds. Collectively they owe $3.7 million, the agency said. A similar approach has been tried in other states.

NYPD labels mosques as terrorism organizations NEW YORK – The New York Police Department has secretly labeled entire mosques as terrorist organizations, a designation that allows police to use informants to record sermons and spy on imams, often without specific evidence of criminal wrongdoing. Designating an entire mosque as a terrorism enterprise means that anyone who attends prayer services there is a potential subject of an investigation and fair game for surveillance. Since the 9/11 attacks, the NYPD has opened at least a dozen “terrorism enterprise investigations” into mosques, according to interviews and confidential police documents. The TEI, as it is known, is a police tool intended to help investigate terrorist cells and the like.

Court sides with hospital on Amish girl care An appeals court has sided with a hospital that wants to force a 10-year-old Amish girl to resume chemotherapy after her parents decided to stop the treatments. The court ruled that a county judge must reconsider his decision that blocked Akron Children’s Hospital’s attempt to give an attorney who’s also a registered nurse limited guardianship over Sarah Hershberger and the power to make medical decisions for her. The hospital believes Sarah’s leukemia is very treatable but says she will die without chemotherapy.

MLK’s dream inspires a new march and president The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – Standing on hallowed ground of the civil rights movement, President Barack Obama challenged new generations Wednesday to seize the cause of racial equality and honor the “glorious patriots” who marched a half century ago to the very steps from which the Rev. Martin Luther King spoke during the March on Washington. In a moment rich with history and symbolism, tens of thousands of Americans of all backgrounds and colors thronged to the National Mall to join the nation’s first black president and civil rights pioneers in marking the 50th anniversary of King’s “I Have a Dream” speech. Obama urged each of them to become a modern-day marcher for economic justice and racial harmony. “The arc of the moral universe may bend toward justice but it doesn’t bend on its own,” Obama said, in an allusion to King’s own message. His speech was the culmination of a daylong celebration of King’s legacy that began with marchers walking the streets of Washington behind a replica of the transit bus that Rosa Parks once rode when she refused to give up her seat to a white man. At precisely 3 p.m., members of the King family tolled a bell to echo King’s call 50 years earlier to “let freedom ring.” It was the same bell that

Georgia Rep. John Lewis, a former freedom rider and the sole survivor of the main organizers of the 1963 march, recounted the civil rights struggles of his youth and exhorted American to “keep the faith and keep our eyes on the prize.” The throngs assembled in soggy weather at the Lincoln Memorial, where King, with soaring, rhythmic oratory and a steely countenance, had pleaded with Americans to come together to stomp out racism and create a land of opportunity for all. Two former presidents, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, spoke of King’s legacy –

and of problems still to overcome. “This march, and that speech, changed America,” Clinton declared, remembering the impact on the world and himself as a young man. “They opened minds, they melted hearts and they moved millions – including a 17-yearold boy watching alone in his home in Arkansas.” Carter said King’s efforts had helped not just black Americans, but “in truth, he helped to free all people.” Still, Carter listed a string of current events that he said would have spurred King to action in this day, including the proliferation of guns and stand-your-ground laws, a Supreme Court ruling striking down parts of the Voting Rights Act, and high rates of joblessness among blacks.

Study: Pot tops illegal drugs used worldwide LONDON – Marijuana is the most popular illegal drug used worldwide, but addictions to popular painkillers like Vicodin, Oxycontin and codeine kill the most people, according to the first-ever global survey of illicit drug abuse. In addition to cannabis and opioid painkillers, scientists analyzed abuse of cocaine and amphetamines in 2010, largely based on previous studies. Ecstasy and hallucinogens weren’t included, because there wasn’t enough data. The researchers found that for all the drugs studied, men in their 20s had the highest rates of abuse. The worst-hit countries were Australia, Britain, Russia and the U.S. The study was published online Thursday in the journal Lancet.

Okla. town tries to rid water supply of worms OKLAHOMA CITY – Beating the late-summer heat isn’t as easy as running to the sink in one northeast Oklahoma town, as residents there are being asked not to drink tap water after red worms were found in the filtering system. The worms – ranging from a half-inch to an inch long – showed up earlier this week in the drinking water supply in Colcord, a small town about 80 miles east of Tulsa. City councilman Terry Wood said city water was turned back on Wednesday morning after workers cleaned, drained and re-cleaned the water tower. No worms were found in the tower, he said.

Rare copy of Magna Carta coming to Houston HOUSTON – Nearly 800 years after the king of England tried to avert a civil war by issuing the Magna Carta, a rarely seen version of the document is coming to the United States, which enshrined many of the charter’s freedoms in the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. The trip to the Houston Museum of Natural Science is believed to be the first time the delicate, yellowed parchment has left England since it was issued in 1217, two years after the first version of the Magna Cartawas distributed. Also on exhibit will be a related legal notice, or writ, issued by the king.

Soldier gets death for shooting The ASSOCIATED PRESS FORT HOOD, Texas – A military jury on Wednesday sentenced Maj. Nidal Hasan to death for the 2009 shooting rampage at Fort Hood, handing the Army psychiatrist the ultimate punishment after a trial in which he seemed to be courting martyrdom by making almost no effort to defend himself. The rare military death sentence came nearly four years after the attack that stunned even an Army hardened by more than a decade of constant war. Hasan walked into a medical building where soldiers were getting medical checkups, shouted “Allahu akbar” – Arabic for “God is great!” – and opened fire with a laser-sighted handgun. Thirteen people were killed. Hasan, who said he acted to protect Islamic insurgents abroad from American aggression, had no visible reaction when the sentence

was announced, staring first at the jury forewoman and then at the judge. Some victims’ relatives were in the courtroom but none showed any reaction, which the judge had warned against. The American-born Muslim of Palestinian descent acted as his own attorney and never denied his actions at the huge Texas Army post. In opening statements, he told jurors that evidence would show he was the shooter and described himself as a soldier who had “switched sides.” The same jurors who convicted Hasan last week deliberated the sentence for about two hours. They needed to agree unanimously on the death penalty. The only alternative was life in prison without parole. Kathy Platoni, an Army reservist who still struggles with images of Capt. John Gaffaney bleeding to death at her feet, said she was not opposed to the punishment.

Peacekeeper for UN dies in Congo fighting The ASSOCIATED PRESS KINSHASA, Congo – United Nations forces and the Congolese army attacked rebel positions with helicopter gunships, armored personnel carriers and a phalanx of ground troops Wednesday, ramping up the U.N.’s engagement in the latest rebellion to roil this country’s tormented east. The fighting was some of the fiercest in the week since the newly created U.N. intervention brigade went on the offensive, and one Tanzanian peacekeeper was killed after the rebels aimed artillery fire at their position, the U.N. said in a statement. Seven other troops were wounded, U.N. spokesman Farhan Haq said. “I am outraged by today’s killing of a United Nations peacekeeper from Tanzania by the M23,” said Martin Kobler, the special representative of the secretary-general in Congo, who heads the peacekeeping mission. “He sacrificed his life to protect civilians in Goma.” The U.N. involvement in the latest flare-up of violence is in sharp contrast to November, when the U.N. peacekeeping mission, known as MONUSCO, stood by as the rebels overtook Goma because their mandate was only to protect civilians. The stepped-up U.N. intervention brigade, created by the Security Council in March, is authorized to take the offensive against the rebels. “It’s already changing the equation. For now, I would shy away from calling it a game changer. It’s certainly unprecedented not only for Congo, but for peacekeeping itself and the U.N. at large,” said Timo Mueller, a Goma-based researcher with the Enough Project, an advocacy group active in eastern Congo.

Calif. launches drone to aid wildfire battle The ASSOCIATED PRESS GROVELAND, Calif. – Firefighters battling the giant wildfire burning in the Sierra Nevada added a California National Guard Predator drone to their arsenal Wednesday to give them almost immediate views of any portion of the flames chewing through rugged forests in and around Yosemite National Park. The MQ-1 unmanned aircraft being remotely piloted hundreds of miles away quickly alerted fire bosses to a new flare-up they otherwise wouldn’t have immediately seen. “They’re piping what they’re seeing directly to the incident commander, and he’s seeing it in real time over a computer network,” said Na-

tional Guard Lt. Col. Tom Keegan. Previously ground commanders relied on helicopters that needed to refuel every two hours. The 12-day-old Rim Fire continued to grow, expanding to 292 square miles, and containment remained at 23 percent. But increasingly confident fire officials said they expect to fully surround it in three weeks, although it will burn for much longer than that. “It’s looking better every day,” said incident spokesman Glen Stratton. While unmanned aircraft have mapped past fires, use of the Predator will be the longest sustained mission by a drone in California to broadcast information to firefighters in real time.

Firefighter Brandon Wenger stands along Highway 120 while monitoring a back burn Tuesday during the Rim Fire near Yosemite National Park, Calif. The plane, the size of a small Cessna, will remain over the burn zone for up to 22 hours at a time, allowing fire commanders to monitor fire activity, determine the

fire’s direction of movement, the extent of containment and confirm new fires ignited by lightning or flying embers. The drone is being flown by the 163rd Wing of the Califor-

nia National Guard at March Air Reserve Base in Riverside and is operating from Victorville Airport, both in Southern California. It generally flew over unpopulated areas on its 300-mile flight to the Rim Fire. Outside the fire area it will be escorted by a manned aircraft. Officials were careful to point out the images are being used only to aid in the effort to contain the fire. In 2009 a NASA Predator equipped with an infrared imaging sensor helped the U.S. Forest Service assess damage from a fire in Angeles National Forest. In 2008, a drone capable of detecting hot spots helped firefighters assess movement of a series of wildfires stretching from Southern California’s Lake Arrowhead to San Diego.

Angry teachers paralyze Mexico City with protests have turned to urban survival skills – driving the wrong way down streets, using rental bikes, clambering over fences and piling into the back of police pickups to get to their destinations. The city even launched an app Tuesday that warns drivers of protest locations, with a little orange icon of what appears to be a city resident climbing a mountain marking each blockade or march. “It’s terrible. There’s no business ... people don’t even want to get into a cab, because the traffic isn’t going anywhere,” taxi driver Ernesto Gallegos said disconsolately Wednesday, standing beside his parked cab on the curb of the city’s main boulevard. “People will get out and say, ‘I’ll walk instead.’ They’ll get on these eco-bikes,” he said, referring to the city’s bike-sharing program. Cesar Juarez, 30, who works repairing wireless systems for

By MARK STEVENSON The Associated Press MEXICO CITY – This sprawling metropolis of honking cars and 22 million harried people has been brought to its knees, not by an earthquake or its ominous smoking volcanoes, but rather a small contingent of angry school teachers. Some 10,000 educators protesting a government reform program have in the span of a week disrupted international air travel, forced the cancellation of two major soccer matches, rerouted the planned route of a marathon and jammed up already traffic-choked freeways. The disruptions have shown how little it takes to push a city that is snarled on a good day over the edge. Taxi drivers are so desperate they are refusing fares to certain frequently blocked parts of the city, and residents

a telecom company, sat in his car at an intersection blocked by protesters, shooting photos with his cellphone to show his boss why he couldn’t reach a client. Others stuck in frozen traffic near the protests busily dialed in to postpone meetings. “I’ve had to cancel two appointments so far today,” fumed well-dressed bank employee Arturo Gutierrez, 47, rapidly texting away on his BlackBerry. “That’s lost economic activity.” “I just told my wife: ‘Let’s go live in the countryside. What are we doing here?’” The cause of this upheaval is a government reform program that would subject teachers to periodic evaluations in the form of standardized tests, and end the unions’ power over hiring. That would be a jolt to an education system in which some teachers can actually inherit their jobs from their parents.

CIA, Pentagon working to gather more intelligence • SYRIA Continued from page A1 the United Nations because diplomatic paralysis must not prevent a response to the alleged chemical weapons attack outside the Syrian capital last week. Despite the administration’s assertions that it would press forward without the U.N., momentum for international military action appeared to slow. British Prime Minister David Cameron promised British lawmakers he would not go to war until a U.N. chemical weapons team on the ground in Syria has a chance to report its findings, pushing the U.K.’s involvement in any potential strike until next week at the earliest. Cameron called an emergency meeting of Parliament on Thursday to vote on whether to endorse international action against Syria.

Iraq bombings, raid kill at least 80 The surge in violence raises fears that Iraq is hurtling back toward the widespread sectarian killing that peaked in 2006 and 2007, when the country was teetering on the edge of civil war. Most of Wednesday’s attacks happened within minutes of each other as people headed to work or were out shopping early in the day. Insurgents unleashed explosives-laden cars, suicide bombers and other bombs that targeted parking lots, outdoor markets and restaurants in predominantly Shiite areas in and around Baghdad, officials said. A military convoy was hit south of the capital. Security forces sealed off the blast scenes as ambulanc-

The ASSOCIATED PRESS BAGHDAD – Car bomb blasts and other explosions tore through mainly Shiite districts around Baghdad during morning rush hour Wednesday in a day of violence that killed at least 80, intensifying worries about Iraq’s ability to tame the spiraling mayhem gripping the country. It was the latest set of largescale sectarian attacks to hit Iraq, even as the government went on “high alert” in case a possible Western strike in neighboring Syria increases Iraq’s turmoil. A relentless wave of killing has left thousands dead since April in the country’s worst spate of bloodshed since 2008.

es raced to pick up the wounded. The twisted wreckage of cars littered the pavement while cleaners and shop owners brushed away debris. At one restaurant, the floor was stained with blood and dishes were scattered on plastic tables. “What sin have those innocent people committed?” asked Ahmed Jassim, who witnessed one of the explosions in Baghdad’s Hurriyah neighborhood. The northern neighborhood of Kazimiyah was among the worst hit. Two bombs went off in a parking lot, followed by a suicide car bomber who struck onlookers who had gathered at the scene. Police said the attack killed 10 people and wounded 27.

Even so, British Foreign Secretary William Hague suggested that U.S. military action need not be constrained by Britain. “The United States are able to make their own decisions,” he told reporters late Wednesday, just after speaking with Secretary of State John Kerry. U.S. officials were in search of additional intelligence to bolster the White House’s case for a strike against Assad’s military infrastructure. American intelligence intercepted lower-level Syrian military commanders’ communications discussing a chemical attack, but the communications don’t specifically link the attack to an official senior enough to tie the killings to Assad himself, according to one U.S. intelligence official and two other U.S. officials. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the intelligence.

The White House ideally wants intelligence that links the attack directly to Assad or someone in his inner circle, to rule out the possibility that a rogue element of the military decided to use chemical weapons without Assad’s authorization. That quest for added intelligence has delayed the release of the report by the Office of the Director for National Intelligence laying out evidence against Assad. The report was promised earlier this week by administration officials. The CIA and the Pentagon have been working to gather more human intelligence tying Assad to the attack, relying on the intelligence services of Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Israel, the officials said. The administration was planning a teleconference briefing Thursday on Syria for leaders of the House and Senate and national security committees in both parties, U.S. officials and congressional aides said.

County administrator is confident MacLean’s sister says he would that an agreement will be reached have liked Wednesday’s ceremony • BUDGET Continued from page A1 “We’ve submitted a budget to you that significantly lowers administrative expenses,” interim Executive Director Todd Schroll told the committee. But the bloc of committee members who have sharply criticized the Mental Health Board’s size and scope disagreed. Voting “no” were committee Chairwoman Donna Kurtz, R-Crystal Lake; Michael Walkup, R-Crystal Lake; and John Hammerand, R-Wonder Lake. One point opponents noted was the money saved by spinning off several of the Mental Health Board’s coordination services to affiliated agencies working out of its building. Walkup and Hammerand alleged that some of the cutbacks were merely “moving people across the hall.” “It looks like you’re playing a shell game with money and financing,” Kurtz told Schroll, who disputed the accusations. Voting “yes” for the budget were Paula Yensen, D-Lake in the Hills, and Mary McCann, R-Woodstock. Yensen, the County Board’s liaison to the Mental Health Board, has herself been a spending critic and has worked to lower its expenses. Members Sandra Fay Salgado, R-McHenry, and Anna May Miller, R-Cary, attended but had to leave because of other commitments before the vote, which took place three hours into the committee’s meeting. The Mental Health Board has faced growing criticism over the years that it has become far too big and spends too much on administration and overhead – including more than $3 million to almost quadruple the size of its Crystal Lake headquarters – that should instead be going

directly to agencies serving the mentally disabled. But its 2014 proposed budget was hashed out by a radically changed, reform-oriented Mental Health Board that has undergone significant change. Five of the nine seats on the board changed hands this year, much of it due to the Public Health and Human Services Committee, which is poised next month to interview candidates for a sixth vacancy. County Board Chairwoman Tina Hill, who attended the latter part of the debate, told the committee that the change the reform bloc seeks can move only so fast. “It sounds to me like you’re trying to fix something in one budget year,” said Hill, R-Woodstock. McCann, who more than once traded barbs with Kurtz and Walkup during the hearing, could not hide her displeasure with the direction the debate took. “[The Mental Health Board has] done exactly what a small group of County Board members has been pushing for,” McCann said after the vote. “This whole discussion was based on people’s emotional responses to the past, not going forward with a budget for the future,” The question now becomes what the committee’s rejection means. The Mental Health Board, whose members are appointed by the County Board, has a degree of fiscal autonomy under state law. It collects a property-tax levy that was approved by voter referendum, and it has control over how it spends the local, state and federal funds it receives. But the County Board must sign off on the total appropriation it receives, according to a McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office opinion last year. County Administrator Pe-

ter Austin said he will ask the state’s attorney’s office for clarification as to what would happen if the County Board did not approve the appropriation. A parliamentary question also arises as to whether the Mental Health Board budget can move out of the committee with the “no” vote – the full County Board would almost certainly override the rejection when it approves the total 2014 budget. With two months left to go before the County Board is set to approve next year’s budget, Austin said he is confident that some kind of agreement can be reached to avert any kind of impasse. But that did not stop Hill from chiding the committee majority for its vote. “I need you to think about holding up the whole process for three voices, and that concerns me,” Hill said. The Mental Health Board budget was the fourth and last one reviewed Wednesday by the Public Health and Human Services Committee, which approved the budgets of the Regional Office of Education, Valley Hi Nursing Home and the Department of Health. Miller said Wednesday afternoon that she would have voted in favor of the Mental Health Board’s budget had she not had to leave. Salgado could not be reached for comment. The Mental Health Board is requesting $11.45 million in property-tax revenue next year, down from about $11.9 million this year and $12.7 million collected in 2012. Because it levies the maximum tax rate mental health boards are allowed under state law – 15 cents per $100 in assessed valuation – it has no wiggle room to raise its rate to compensate for the decline in the county’s assessed value.

Burial with honors

Continued from page A1 After arriving at Justen Funeral Home, MacLean’s coffin was carried inside and Mitchell was presented with a folded black MIA/POW flag by Rolling Thunder Illinois, an organization dedicated to publicizing missing in action and prisoner-of-war issues. Despite the somberness of the ceremony, Mitchell was smiling as she watched MacLean’s coffin get rolled away.

The burial with full military honors will take place at 1 p.m. Saturday at Windridge Memorial Park Cemetery, 7014 S. Rawson Bridge Road, Cary.

MacLean would have liked it all, Mitchell said, adding that he probably would have wanted to hop onto one of the motorcycles. She plans on sharing stories of her brother with the numerous family members

gathered for the burial Saturday afternoon, including the time she tried to teach him how to drive stick shift when he was on furlough. “This one time I was taking him over to roller skating, and I had my brother’s old Buick, one of those oldtime Buicks,” said Mitchell, remembering how MacLean had wanted to drive it. “I put him in there, and all of sudden, we’re ch-chug-ch-chugch-chug-chug. Oh, we’re going to bust this car yet. He finally parked the thing and let me drive.”

Staying safe this weekend If you’re lucky, you have Monday off and plan to fire up the barbecue and enjoy one last summer hurrah. While it’s actually a day to celebrate the social and economic achievements of workers, Labor Day serves as the unofficial, symbolic end of summer. It’s a time to enjoy a few last carefree days before school kicks For the record into high gear, swimming pools We hope residents make safe close and vacadecisions this weekend so local tions fade into police are left with little to do. pleasant memories, when we put away our white clothing and gear up for football season. Everyone who works deserves recognition, and a day off that honors workers seems the least the government can do for its citizens. But while you’re giving yourself a pat on the back, please do so safely. Many of us are hitting the road: In Illinois, 1.9 million people are expected to travel for the long holiday weekend, with just over 1.7 million driving, according to AAA. Those staying closer to home might hit the road to go to parties with family and friends. Holidays tend to have a higher concentration of vehicular accidents, and Labor Day weekend is no different. From 2005 to 2011, there were 96 fatalities over Labor Day weekends in Illinois, according to the Illinois Department of Transportation. Thirty-seven of those were in alcohol-related fatal crashes. Labor Day weekends in that same time frame saw 3,967 people injured, and more than 17,000 crashes. All were unnecessary. There’s been a decline in the number of Labor Day weekend accidents – from a high of 2,974 in 2007 to 1,961 in 2011. The decline is good: It shows people are thinking twice before drinking and driving, or illustrates that annual state campaigns such “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” are working. Local law enforcement agencies, including Woodstock Police and the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office, are taking part in this year’s “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” crackdown on drunken drivers. The statewide crackdown includes high-visibility alcohol and seat-belt enforcement, and is funded by federal traffic safety funds through IDOT. It runs through Labor Day. We hope residents make safe decisions this weekend – such as having designated drivers or staying off roads until sober – so local police are left with little to do.

More wasted state money A not-so-surprising development from Springfield. Anyone who thought or hoped Illinois might have run out of ways to waste money had to be disappointed when Illinois Watchdog reported another $3.6 million was dribbled away. The culprit this time is the new Educator Licensure Information System. Ideally, it was to be a streamlined way for school districts to double-check teacher certifications. Unfortunately, it also was a way for teachers – if they were inclined to click a few links – to access personal information of other teachers. In the high-stakes world of human resources, that’s a pretty big no-no. “Once (a teacher) logged on to their part of the system, if they followed a very specific set of steps they could then access personal information for other educators,” Illinois State Board of Education spokesman Matt Vannover told Illinois Watchdog. The database was approved in 2012, and was scheduled to be up and running before this school year began. Now, Vannover said, ISBE plans to spend an additional $340,000 to get the system ready by September. “Originally the contract was for $3.24 million, and (the system) was to be online last June,” Vannover said. “(The contract) has been extended through 2014. The contract is now standing at $3.58 million.” It’s not just a money problem, of course. With the system put back on the shelf to prevent private information from going public, school districts that trusted the state’s system would work were scrambling to make sure their teachers were eligible to be in the classroom at the start of the year. Illinois’ teacher certification system only will track certifications and licenses. The system will not keep track of teachers’ personnel files or discipline records. Which means even if everything goes well, it’s still not a complete solution. As is often the case, the state mismanaging money by purchasing incomplete or unhelpful products has the trickle-down effect of making things more difficult at the local level. Don’t let anyone in Springfield say there’s no more government waste to trim. There is new evidence seemingly every week. The (Ottawa) Times

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Chivalry, kindness abound To the Editor: It is my hope that this letter will get printed in order to assure the residents of McHenry that the qualities of chivalry and kindness do still exist. This was demonstrated recently by four gentlemen living on or near Lillian Street in McHenry. It was a recent Saturday afternoon when my wife was driving our family car on Lillian Street and experienced a tire blowout. A front tire sidewall blew out, and the noise was enough to significantly startle my wife and half the neighborhood. As my wife maneuvered the car to the shoulder of the road, four gentlemen in the immediate area came running out to see what happened and offer assistance. These kind gentlemen checked to make sure my wife was OK, and then immediately proceeded to change the flat tire. The task was not easy (a minivan with the spare well hidden under

the car), but two of the men figured it out and had the tire changed in less than a half-hour. These men were kind, courteous, efficient, and asked for nothing in return. My wife and I want to acknowledge this kind act, and recommend them to any race-car owner looking for an addition to their pit crew. Again, thank you, guys.

Disguising racism To the Editor: Mr. John Mayerhofer of Huntley seems to be upset that black people have a political voice. That was the point of his letter to the editor (“Race Relations,” Aug. 21), was it not? He was upset that President Obama doesn’t lead, upset that black politicians and religious leaders didn’t like the Zimmerman verdict, and then upset that white people can’t walk

safely through the black neighborhoods that black people can’t even walk freely through. He’s right, in a way, that there is a problem with race relations in America, and it is Obama’s fault. Obama is a black, liberal president. It’s unfortunate those two facts have opened up the closet door and now racists are walking proud once more. It seems because Obama is black, racism is now disguised as a political point of view. Whatever it is, it is still racist. If you disagree with

Obama and liberals, you disagree with Obama and liberals. That’s political. If you disagree with Obama and suggest that all black communities are violent toward whites, that’s racist. You are not voicing a political opinion when you imply that all black people are violent, including black political activists. That is not a political opinion. That is a racist talking point thinly disguised as politics. Sam Urbaniak McHenry

Unions promote unfair atmosphere in Illinois SPRINGFIELD – For years, organized labor has boasted of its strength in numbers, but as its membership has dwindled, increasingly its political clout has come in the form of dollars going to politicians. In fact, between 2005 and 2011, the number of union workers in Illinois has dropped from 927,000 to 876,000. Despite the 5.5 percent membership drop, the amount of money Illinois unions have given to politicians has increased 41 percent during the same period. “Unions aren’t persuading people to join, so the only way they can exert influence is through lobbying and political campaigns,” said my Illinois Policy Institute colleague, Paul Kersey. Kersey, director of labor policy, just wrote “The Labor Book, a Guide to Illinois Government Unions.” The book is a must-read for folks wanting to gain a better understanding of diverse issues such as school reform, taxation, government spending and pension transformation. In all of these issues, unions exert disproportionate influence on the legislative process. And as Labor Day approaches, it’s important to remember that the makeup of organized labor has changed.

VIEWS Scott Reeder As Kersey notes in his book, in 1983, 75 percent of all Illinois union members worked in the private sector. Today, that number has dropped to 56 percent. Marketplace pressures have reduced union membership in private industry, but so far in Illinois government, unions have been protected from such forces, Kersey said. “It’s hard to know if government workers really want to be a part of the union,” he said. “Right now, they are forced to pay dues to the union – whether they want to or not.” And it’s even harder to know if rank-and-file union members agree with how union bosses allocate their dues. It is from these workers that money flows into union political activism. And union bosses heading the committees decide which politicians to aid. Unions also run large political action committees. According to the Labor Book, between 2002 and 2012, the state’s six major union PACs gave more than $25 million to politicians. Of those dollars, 81

percent flowed to Democrats, and 19 percent went to Republicans. The problem with these hefty PAC donations is that government union leaders are negotiating with the very people whose campaigns they are funding. This is one reason the Illinois state pension systems are the worst funded in the nation. Union leaders have been successful with negotiating higher wages and better benefits. But another one of the main roles of a union boss is to serve as a steward of their members’ pension systems. As of 2012, Illinois’ five state pension systems were only 39 percent funded, according to the Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability. Under this system, the risk for workers is that their retirement money simply won’t be there. Rank-and-file union members are left without options because they can’t exit these failing pension systems. When workers in Wisconsin were given a choice about whether to join a union, many opted out. The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees council representing city and county workers in Milwaukee has experienced a 61 percent drop in membership

during the past two years. And the AFSCME council representing state workers saw its membership fall 35 percent, the MacIver Institute reports. When workers are allowed to make this decision for themselves, union bosses are held accountable for their actions – they can’t just continue to follow a failing status quo because their performance is tied to the size and strength of their membership. But here in Illinois, forced union membership for government workers is commonplace, and union bosses are free to carry on without any consequences. And frankly, that is unfair. Don’t Illinois workers deserve the same right to choose that their brothers and sisters in Indiana, Michigan and the 22 other right-to-work states have? All-powerful union bosses are perpetuating an unfair atmosphere for workers in Illinois. It’s high time Illinois lawmakers freed up workers, allowing them to make their own choices when it comes to whether to support a union. • Scott Reeder is a veteran statehouse reporter and the journalist in residence at the Illinois Policy Institute.

LOADED AMMO CLIP FOUND AT SCHOOL MARENGO – A loaded ammunition clip reported stolen Tuesday was found at a nearby elementary school the same day, according to the Marengo Police Department. Police received a report that several items were stolen from an unlocked vehicle parked across the street from Locust School during the early morning hours Tuesday, Police Chief Joseph Hallman said. Items stolen included a loaded ammunition clip. A student found the clip during school hours Tuesday and reported it to school staff, Hallman said. The clip was the item reported stolen. “Of course the location of the magazine has created some concern, but it has nothing to do with the school,” Hallman said in a statement.

CRYSTAL LAKE – A spirited crowd filled a McHenry County College auditorium Wednesday night for the Common Core Summit, a debate-style forum that featured

strong opinions for and against the new education standards. Hosted by U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren, R-Winfield, the forum’s intent was to paint a clearer picture of what the future holds, Hultgren said during his opening remarks. The Common Core learning

standards were adopted in Illinois in 2010 and are to be fully implemented by next school year. Governors and state education commissioners from 48 states, two territories and the District of Columbia committed in 2009 to developing a common core of English and math

standards for students. “We need to better understand what our state is undertaking and whether we should continue with it or take a step back ... and reassess our options,” Hultgren said.

Marengo starts wastewater work Second groundbreaking for city’s treatment plant expansion project By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO sdibenedetto@shawmedia.com MARENGO – The city will again break ground on its troubled wastewater treatment plant expansion in November after aldermen recently awarded a construction bid that is about $1.2 million higher than initial estimates. The Marengo City Council earlier this week picked Peoria-based Williams Brothers Construction Inc. to construct the upgrade to the city’s aging wastewater plant for a low bid of $10.69 million. The city received bids from six companies, topping at $11.67 million. Earlier this year, H.R. Green, a McHenry engineering firm contracted to design the retooled project, estimated that construction would likely cost the city $9.5 million. City officials Monday explained that the higher-than-expected bids were tied to increasing construc-

“We were a little bit surprised. On the other hand, it’s been reported that costs are going up. The bids were good.

On the other hand, it’s been reported that costs are going up,” City Manager Gary Boden said. “The bids were good. They were just higher, but not significantly higher, and not outside our financial capabilities.” Aldermen approved the bid, 7-1, with 4th Ward Alderman Dennis Hammortree voting against it. The Williams Brothers bid represents the third time the council has gone through the bidding process for the expansion project. The city initially received bids in 2011 that were significantly higher

than the city’s budget for the project. Officials then revised the design and awarded a roughly $12 million bid to Gurnee firm J.J. Henderson. Mayor Don Lockhart ordered J.J. Henderson to stop preliminary work after officials broke ground on the project late last summer. Crews found solid waste within a buried landfill on the site that city officials have said the original engineer overlooked. City administrators then brought in H.R. Green to redesign the project, which avoids the problematic landfill along Route 23, near

the Kishwaukee River. The original $12 million loan from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency still will cover the new construction bid. The council eventually will discuss water and sewer rate increases that would pay back the loan. Aldermen temporarily cut the rates last year after the project was suspended. They had nearly doubled the rates earlier, but Boden said this forthcoming increase likely will be smaller because the project is less than the previous construction attempts. “We saved money. There is no question about that,” Boden said. “It’s just isn’t quite as much as we hoped for.” Construction is expected to conclude sometime in 2015. The council also annexed 183 acres east and west of Route 23 and south of Harmony Road in its ongoing

Additional charges filed in Oliver sexual assault trial By CHELSEA McDOUGALL cmcdougall@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – A sixth woman has come forward alleging that Charles R. Oliver beat and sexually assaulted her. Additional charges were filed Tuesday against Oliver, 45, who already is awaiting trial on multiple charges of aggravated criminal sexual assault, kidnapping and unlawful restraint. Oliver, 45, is said to have met the women – many of

whom were escorts or prostitutes – on Craigslist or other websites. Police said Charles R. he then took Oliver them to his home at 407 W. Greenwood Ave. in Woodstock where they were tied up or beaten and raped. With the new allegations, Oliver’s bond was increased to $3.5 million. McHenry County Judge

Sharon Prather on Friday rejected his request to reduce his bond. The newest alleged victim has made similar allegations about her encounter with Oliver, Assistant State’s Attorney Sharyl Eisenstein said at Friday’s bond hearing. The woman said she met Oliver in November through an escort service and that he tied her up, pushed her down stairs and forced her to have sex with him. The woman reported it to Loves Park police by Decem-

ber. Oliver initially was arrested in January, and more charges were added in February. His defense attorney, Mark Facchini, said the timing of the latest allegations is suspicious. “This has been spread all over the Internet and media. It’s not surprising that a victim came forward,” he said at the bond hearing, adding Wednesday that the woman came forward “after the media blitz, after seeing him on

television.” During the investigation that led to the initial charges, police found videos in Oliver’s home with images of unknown women engaged in sex acts, many of which do not appear consensual, Eisenstein has said. But Facchini said those videos did not show any form of threat or harm. A doctor determined that one woman showed no signs of sexual abuse, he said.

Wonder Lake man admits to bankruptcy fraud ROCKFORD – A Wonder Lake man pleaded guilty Wednesday to bankruptcy fraud. James Grossmayer, 51, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy Sept. 19, 2008. In federal court in Rockford, Grossmayer admitted he intentionally left out his ownership interest in a New York Life annuity totaling $25,000. Grossmayer completed and signed the Schedule B bankruptcy forms, knowing they were false, according to a news release from the U.S. Department of Justice. He was charged with making a false declaration under penalty of perjury in a bankruptcy case. The charge carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and fines up to $250,000, or twice the gross gain or gross loss resulting from the offense, whichever is greater. Grossmayer is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 5. The plea was accepted by U.S. District Judge Frederick J. Kapala.

Officials argue benefits of Core Extra territory still part of city plans • COMMON CORE Continued from page B1 The new standards replace Illinois standards written in 1997. Forty-six states have committed to implementing the Common Core standards, which proponents say will lead to higher student achievement. Illinois Deputy Superintendent Susie Morrison echoed that belief Wednesday night, speaking before the debate portion of the night began. She said the state board implemented the change “because they believed it was an opportunity to improve the opportunities and outcomes of our young people.” But Erin Raasch, who garnered the loudest cheers of the night, said the public was left in the dark during the process.

news service Choice Media, said the issue with the Common Core is that government has had its hands in from the start. “Standards can make sense. They can help our lives,” Bowdon said. “The problem is when it’s a topdown standard.” That point was disputed by Mike Petrilli, a writer and education analyst, who said the Common Core standards were built as a reflection of the standard needed to succeed after high school. Petrilli serves as executive vice president of the Thomas B. Fordham Institute, which rates standards of learning. He said the old Illinois standards came in at a D, whereas new Common Core standards for math and English rate in the A and B range, respectively.

“We need to better understand what our state is undertaking and whether we should continue with it or take a step back ... and reassess our options.” U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren R-Winfield Raasch founded the website stopcommoncoreillinois. org after inquiring why her child, a special-needs student who attends public school, wasn’t working on skills like penmanship and spelling. Raasch said she was told that the skills are “not emphasized in the core curriculum.” Bob Bowdon, executive director of the education reform

• WASTEWATER Continued from page B1 quest to entice the Illinois Tollway Authority to build an interchange at Route 23 and Interstate 90. Aldermen voted, 6-2, to

annex the territory, with Hammortree and 2nd Ward Alderman Matt Keenum voting against it. Some questioned why the annexation was necessary after the city had extended its limit to the tollway a month ago. City administrators said

the extra territory was still a part of the city’s development plans. The 183 acres would cover the area around a future interchange, drawing future manufacturers, business parks and retailers, city documents show.

Oliver’s next court date is set for Friday • SEX ASSAULT Continued from page B1 “Not a single woman has a single injury to corroborate the stories they’re telling to the police,” he said Friday. Oliver allegedly made threats to one alleged victim’s mother through Facebook, where he reportedly told the mother he would

rape her two daughters. In the other cases, Oliver is said to have threatened to kill or shame the victims. He made copies of the women’s identification, or said that he had, and that he knew where they lived. He also blackmailed one woman by texting her images of the assault, prosecutors have said. Oliver also told a witness, Eisenstein said, that he could

hide dead bodies at his cabin in Michigan. Oliver also is charged with harassing a witness, stemming from an incident in which he allegedly harassed the boyfriend of one of the alleged victims. Oliver’s next scheduled court date is Friday, when a trial date will be set, likely sometime in December, attorneys have said.

Village Board would control permits • TOURS Continued from page B1 an owner-occupied residence or property with special architectural or historical significance for either home tours or special community-related events or activities, or both, that involve members of the public, whether any fee or donation is involved. Home tours would not include showing a residence or a property to potential purchasers or renters under the proposal. Home tours would be allowed only with special-use permits, which are approved or denied by the Village Board. People who give home tours would have to submit a parking and traffic plan and a calendar of proposed events and activities. There could be limitations on hours, the number of tours and the number of people allowed to participate in the tours.

inviting visitors to his home for a tour. Strohl was found not guilty. Ted Johnson, who lives near the castle, said many residents have signed a petition against home tours at the building. “This ordinance is a door-opener to an application to get a special permit,” Johnson said. Zoning Board of Appeals Chairman Dan Celske said the proposed ordinance puts a process in place for people to come and ask for permission for a home tour. “There was no ordinance before. … This is actually a benefit to the neighborhood because it requires somebody to come in and get permission from the zoning board and eventually the Village Board to do it, where as before they could go and do it and there was nothing on the books [that] prevented it, if they did it a certain way,” Celske said. “It’s not opening any door that wasn’t already opened.”

“This ordinance is a door-opener to an application to get a special permit.” Ted Johnson Fox River Grove resident Signage and other advertising would be restricted, and there would be periodic inspections by the village. With a special-use permit, the village could put in certain conditions to mitigate any impact on neighbors for the tours to take place, said Julie Tappendorf, an attorney with Ancel Glink hired by the village to help write the proposed ordinance. Residential property owners giving tours became an issue in recent years when the village filed charges alleging that Bettendorf Castle owner Michael Strohl had violated the rules of the residential zoning area in which he lives by

Then-Labor Secretary nominee Thomas Perez testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington. Veterans and disabled workers who often struggle to find work could have an easier time landing a job under new federal regulations. The rules, announced this week by the Labor Department, will require most government contractors to set a goal of having disabled workers make up at least 7 percent of their employees. For veterans, the goal is 8 percent.

Vets, disabled get boost New labor rules rile contractors and business groups By SAM HANANEL The Associated Press WASHINGTON – Veterans and disabled workers who often struggle to find work could have an easier time landing a job under new federal regulations. The rules, announced by the Labor Department, will require most government contractors to set a goal of having disabled workers make up at least 7 percent of their employees. The benchmark for veterans would be 8 percent, a rate that could change from year to year depending on the overall number of former military members in the workforce. The rules could benefit veterans, especially younger ones, said Alan Belcher, executive director of TLS Veterans, a McHenry-based nonprofit group that helps homeless veterans. “I’m really encouraged by this. It puts hiring veterans in the front of contractors’ minds,” he said. “Younger veterans, those coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan, are behind the eight ball when it comes to jobs. Their peers have been out in the workforce for four or five years, but they are just starting out. They need a leg up.” The new requirements could have a major affect on hiring since federal contractors and subcontractors account for about 16 million workers – more than 20 percent of the nation’s workforce. But some business groups have threatened legal action, complaining the rules conflict with federal laws that discourage employers from asking about a job applicant’s disability status.

Although veterans as a whole have a lower unemployment rate than the nation at large, younger veterans who served in the years after the Sept. 11 attacks are having a much harder time finding work. In McHenry County, the effect of the new rules may be limited, said Pam Cumpata, president of the McHenry County Economic Development Corp. However, she said, additional government mandates often “add complexity” for local businesses seeking federal contracts. Labor Secretary Thomas Perez called the new policy a “win-win” that will benefit workers “who belong in the economic mainstream and deserve a chance to work and opportunity to succeed.” He said it also would benefit employers by increasing their access to a diverse pool of new workers.

“To create opportunity, we need to strengthen our civil-rights laws and make sure they have the intended effect,” Perez told reporters in a conference call announcing the rules. The unemployment rate for disabled workers is a staggering 14.7 percent, nearly twice the rate of 7.4 percent for the general population. The jobless rate for all veterans is 7.3 percent, but for veterans who served in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, it’s 9.9 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Pending sales of U.S. homes slipped in July WASHINGTON – Fewer Americans signed contracts to buy U.S. homes in July, but the level stayed close to a 6½-year high. The modest decline suggests higher mortgage rates have yet to sharply slow sales. The National Association of Realtors said its seasonally adjusted index for pending home sales declined 1.3 percent to 109.5. That’s close to May’s reading of 111.3, which was the highest since December 2006. The small decline suggests sales of previously owned homes should remain healthy in the coming months. There is generally a one- to two-month lag between a signed contract and a completed sale. Final sales jumped to an annual pace of 5.4 million in July, the highest in 3½ years, the Realtors said last week. That’s consistent with a healthy housing market. Higher mortgage rates appeared to have had a bigger impact on new-home sales, which plummeted last month. That raised fears that rate increases were restraining the housing recovery. But many economists note home prices and mortgage rates remain low by historical standards. Consistent job gains and rising consumer confidence also may support sales in the coming months.

Doctors search patient data for unneeded costs By CARLA K. JOHNSON The Associated Press CHICAGO – Hospitals and doctors serving tens of thousands of Illinois patients are taking part in an ambitious program under President Barack Obama’s health law that’s designed to save Medicare money and improve patient health. They’ve formed “accountable care organizations,” or networks of providers who agree to manage the care of at least 5,000 Medicare patients for at least three years. After receiving the federal designation, these networks can share in any savings with the government if they find ways to eliminate repeat tests, keep patients healthy, reduce unneeded hospital visits and otherwise hold down health care costs. “This isn’t rocket science. This is about getting to know your patients,” said Don Franke of Alexian Brothers Health System, which has agreed to manage the care of 16,000 Medicare patients in its ACO. “It’s about doing what you can do to keep

them out of the hospital and avoid duplication of services.” Alexian Brothers, based in the Chicago suburbs, received data in late June about the Medicare beneficiaries in its care. Medicare, the federal health insurance program for the elderly and disabled, now spends, on average, about $13,000 per patient per year on these Alexian Brothers patients. Alexian Brothers leaders believe they can do a better job of getting those costs closer to a benchmark of $10,000 per patient per year. The first steps are identifying patients with the costliest and most complicated conditions, then developing customized and coordinated care plans. But there are obstacles. The 800 physicians who are part of the Alexian Brothers ACO now have 52 different electronic medical record and billing systems. That will make it more difficult to drill down into the patient data, Franke said. “Some providers aren’t even on a billing system. They just send their

paper coding in to a third-party vendor who submits claims to Medicare,” Franke said. Details in the patient data hold clues to reducing costs, he said. One doctor found his patients, on average, were seeing 14 different doctors. “If the ACO can help coordinate the patient’s care to narrow that to the critical number who need to be touching the patient, it may help” to make care more efficient, Franke said. Seven Illinois-based ACOs – located in Champaign, Chicago, Peoria and other cities – are among about 250 operating nationally under the health law. Combined, ACOs are coordinating the care for more than 200,000 Illinois Medicare patients. The federal government estimates the ACOs could save $940 million over four years by preventing unneeded care and keeping patients healthier. But some health care economists have said ACOs may spur more consolidations and merg-

ers among hospitals. That could drive up costs because bigger hospitals have more clout when setting prices with insurance companies. Results so far have been mixed. In Peoria, OSF Healthcare was one of the first designated ACOs, but the network didn’t lower costs in the first year enough to share savings with Medicare. It wasn’t alone. Of the 32 “pioneer” ACOs across the nation, only 13 produced enough savings to reap any rewards. Among those that got good results, Franciscan Alliance achieved $13.3 million in savings in 2012 and received nearly half of that back. The shared savings will be split among the hospitals and doctors participating in the program. The Indianapolis-based ACO doesn’t serve any Illinois Medicare patients. “The Affordable Care Act does more than just guarantee coverage. It’s also reducing costs and improving the quality of the care,” said Greg Dill of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ regional office in Chicago.

Interest rate fears are much ado about nothing There has been a tremendous amount of fear-based information flying around lately regarding the Federal Reserve Bank program referred to as QE3, the third phase of quantitative easing. It has been theorized it will cause our economy to slow and the stock markets to decline. There is no doubt investing requires an ability to embrace uncertainty as all new information – and there is a ton of it – is a surprise, whether good, bad or indifferent. This is why investment management can benefit from incorporating a strong risk management component. Coming to a conclusion as to how we should measure the impact of interest rate fear is difficult because, as always, many components are at play and much information is flowing. First, one must take a solid look at what exactly the Fed is signaling at the current time. There have been hints suggesting in September the Fed is going to start to slow its securities purchases, which have been running about $85 billion a month, split between Treasuries and mortgagebacked bonds. The intent of this program was to hold down interest rates for a longer term, yet interest rates are nonetheless rising. The 10-year note has risen from 1.65 percent to approximately 2.8 percent over the past 12 months. The 30year also has risen from 2.76 percent to about 3.8 percent over the same time period. Mortgage interest rates also are starting to move up. Markets can only be manipulated for so long before they will start to move to their fundamental value, which, for the 10-year note, is estimated by many economists to be around 3.4 percent. Rising interest rates generally indicate a growing economy, which we do have, albeit considerably below what it is capable of. The employment problem is slowly healing, but for the most part, lim-

FINANCE Paula Dorion-Gray ited to the educated, which relate to generally higherincome jobs. Even though the economy continues to send mixed signals, many of these signals are not that important or reliable. The key signals continue to indicate growth will continue at least at the same pace that it has and eventually accelerate. In our opinion, the Fed’s effort to slow the purchases of securities has no real impact on its overall interest rate policy as it has pledged to keep that policy accommodative by holding the Federal Reserve Funds Rate at or near zero until the unemployment rate reaches 6.5 percent. We could be well into 2015 before this is achieved. Overall, rates should slowly continue to increase, but the effects of this increase should be mitigated by other, more positive, economic news. Global growth is improving as both Asian and European economies are starting to grow again. They are not out of the woods yet, especially Europe, which still has problems with a number of its member countries. The U.S. dollar, while down from its July 2013 high, should continue to firm, which makes commodities and imports less expensive while global growth aids our exports. The energy (fracking), transportation (sea, truck and rail along with current pipeline construction) and innovative technology firms are still strong growth catalysts for our country. Large corporations’ profits are still growing as companies either grow sales and/or manage margins. Large corporations benefit most from the Fed Funds rate being low as they finance most of their longer-term needs through stock and bond markets and not through banks. Smaller and mid-size companies that depend on banks

are seeing relaxed credit standards as the anti-risk environment of the regulators after the financial crisis is reduced. However, these companies remain cautious as commercial and industrial loan growth remains historically low. Most forecasts do not show a large increase in business investment through the next 15 to 16 months. Small businesses remain especially cautious as overall credit standards still make credit availability challenging and an overall regulatory and business climate that favors large business over small continues to heighten their overall future concerns. Lastly, investors’ risk appetite overall has been increasing as of late as the generally more risky Nasdaq and Russell 2000 have been showing some additional strength. The bottom line is there is no current information that confirms the result of a QE3 purchases slowdown will have an adverse effect on the stock markets or the expected growth of the U.S. and global economy. Please remember, surprises can come and past performance does not guarantee future results. For that reason, I continue to heartily recommend a solid financial, retirement and estate plan that guides an actively managed investment and risk management plan designed to your specific needs and risk tolerance level. It will reduce dependence on the staggering amount of conflicting news and information readily available.

8IN BRIEF U.S.-made smartphone just as cheap to produce NEW YORK – Motorola’s new Moto X phone doesn’t cost more to make simply because it’s assembled in Texas, research firm IHS said Wednesday. The Moto X is the first smartphone to carry the “Made in the U.S.A.” designation. Labor costs are higher in the U.S. compared with Asian factories, where

phones are typically made. But IHS said the Moto X is about 5 percent cheaper to make than Samsung Electronic Co.’s flagship Galaxy S4 phone. The firm said the Moto X’s overall production cost is just 9 percent more than that of Apple’s iPhone 5. The findings come as little surprise, as the labor cost of a phone is just a small part of its production cost. IHS estimates

that labor and other assembly costs Motorola $12 per phone for the Moto X, bringing the production cost to $226. That compares with $207 for the iPhone 5 and $237 for the Galaxy S4. IHS said Motorola is able to keep the cost of parts low by using standard components that don’t break much new ground.

• RULES Continued from page B6 The rules are expected to affect about 171,000 companies doing business with the federal government, said Patricia A. Shiu, director of the Labor Department’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs. Generally, the rules affect those contractors with at least 50 employees and $50,000 in government contracts. Shiu estimated as many as 585,000 disabled workers and more than 200,000 veterans could get new jobs if all the companies meet the hiring goals within the first

Thursday, August 29, 2013 • Page B7 year of compliance. Labor officials say the new benchmarks are only goals and not specific hiring quotas. But companies that can’t provide documents showing they tried to meet the goal could risk having their federal contracts revoked. If a company can’t immediately meet the new goals, it is required to examine recruitment or outreach practices to decide how to improve. No fine, penalty or sanction would be imposed solely for failing to meet the goal, Shiu said. The new metrics for the disabled and veterans are similar to those contractors have long used for women

and minorities. They will take effect six months from now to give contractors enough time to process them. Under the rules, companies must keep detailed records of recruitment and hiring efforts taken to meet the new goals. Stephen Sandherr, CEO of the Associated General Contractors of America, said the new employment rules were unnecessary. “These rules will force federal contractors to spend an estimated $6 billion a year to produce reams of new paperwork proving they are doing what the federal government already knows they are doing,” he said in a statement.

Thunder come up short Knights win, 4-2, on PKs By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO mmontemurro@shawmedia.com GRAYSLAKE – All game long, Grayslake North was one pass away from putting together dangerous scoring chances against Woodstock North’s defense in Wednesday’s opener of the Vernon Hills

Cougar Classic. While the missed connections led to seven offside calls against the Knights, Grayslake North limited the Thunder’s speedy attack up front to force penalty kicks after regulation ended in a tie, 1-1. Grayslake North thrived in penalty kicks, converting all four attempts, and Lucas Buckels delivered the game-winning conversion to give the Knights a 2-1 (4-2 on PKs) win against the Thunder. It was an unfortunate outcome for a Woodstock North squad that had threatened to take the lead,

spearheaded by junior forward Chris Niese peppering shots toward the net. However, considering it was the Thunder’s first game of the season and it came after practicing indoors the past two days, Woodstock North coach Lauren Farley was encouraged by the performance. “The first half, we were working out some kinks, but definitely the second half was much better,” Farley said. “In the second half, they started to play well, they started to make passes and runs. We couldn’t finish, so it was unfor-

tunate we lost in PKs.” Woodstock North (0-1) struck first with a header goal by junior forward Josh Jandron off a nifty pass from senior Ryan Allori 18 minutes into the first half. The Thunder couldn’t build on the momentum, however, with a couple of close-range shots landing off net. But the combination of Jandron and Niese leading Woodstock North’s attack helped create plenty of chances, and together they should be a threat this season.

I was going to start by asking how you’d feel about paying full price for a game in which almost none of the starters will play, and 40 percent of the guys who do play will then be fired within 42 hours of the final gun? But hey, it’s been such a promising and positive preseason so far, why go negative now? Definitely a worthwhile topic for another time though. Let’s keep the focus for now on the fact that the More Bears Bears’ exhibition game against the Final cuts are Cleveland Browns coming, and they on Thursday more can be cruel for than matters to some, writes Tom quite a few guys in their locker room. Musick. PAGE C4 To quote backup tight end Fendi Onobun, “We’re fighting for our lives.” As near as I can tell, the Bears have two quarterbacks, two running backs, four wide receivers, two tight ends, seven offensive linemen, six defensive linemen, five linebackers, seven defensive backs and special teams players Robbie Gould, Adam Podlesh, Devin Hester and Pat Mannelly who’ve almost certainly made the team. Who I believe they are really isn’t that important, but just for kicks and giggles I’ll list them in my 3-Point Stance and you can test me. The point is, that leaves 14 roster spots to be won by the 36 guys still on the roster who will play against the Browns and don’t appear to have a job sewn up. So while Jay Cutler, Brandon Marshall, Roberto Garza, Julius Peppers, Lance Briggs, Peanut Tillman and all the other cool guys who don’t have to play against the Browns are sipping pina coladas on the sideline and checking out the action in the stands, we’ll have all the drama we could possibly want, a real live survivor game playing out on the surprisingly still green grass of Soldier Field. Maybe it is worth the price of admission. My gut tells me Jordan Palmer and Trent Edwards will both be gone Saturday. It just makes too much sense for the Bears to pick up a younger prospect they can teach the system to on the practice squad as long as Cutler and McCown are both healthy. They were the last two kids invited to the dance, and one of them will have to really light it up to win a job.

JOHNSBURG FOOTBALL

FOOTBALL RANKINGS

Skyhawks out to end skid

Cary-Grove, Huntley boys golfers Marian start beat Jacobs by 4 shots in Top 10

By MEGHAN MONTEMURRO mmontemurro@shawmedia.com Johnsburg quarterback Nick Brengman was in eighth grade the last time the Skyhawks won a varsity football game. Now a junior, Johnsburg’s second-year starting quarterback is in charge of helping end a 21-game losing streak. While that may seem like a daunting task, the experience Brengman gained last season as a sophomore is part of the reason coach Mike Maloney is optimistic about what this group is capable of this year. “We’re excited about what [Brengman] brings, and I’m excited to see how he progresses throughout the season and what his performance is like,” Maloney said. Brengman hasn’t given it much thought yet as to what it will be like when Johnsburg wins its first game since the Skyhawks’ last victory, a 21-9 win Oct. 1, 2010, at Woodstock. The Skyhawks’ first opportunity comes Friday when they open the season at 7:15 p.m. at home against Richmond-Burton. “All I know is it’s going to be really exciting, and I don’t know what I’m going to do,” Brengman said. “I really don’t know what’s going to go through my mind when we win.” When Maloney named Brengman the Skyhawks’ starting quarterback last year, he did so in part with the big picture in mind. That year of experience – as tough as it was sometimes en route to Johnsburg’s second straight 0-9 season – is expected to pay off, learning from previous mistakes and the pressures of leading the team. “We’re going to compete with teams more than we did

Johnsburg junior quarterback Nick Brengman (left) is excited about the Skyhawks’ chances of ending their long losing streak this season. last year,” Brengman said. “We’re going to put up more touchdowns on the board than last year, and I feel like we’re going to surprise more teams than we ever did in years before.” Aiding Brengman, who threw for 678 yards last year, is the return of four offensive linemen, plus the Skyhawks’ starting tight end. Maloney believes Brengman and the offense have the capability to become more efficient and be a greater threat. The potential athleticism on both sides of the ball has Maloney excited about Johnsburg putting pressure on opponents by getting the ball in the athletes’ hands and letting them take advantage of open space. “Our leadership is outstanding,” Maloney said. “Those guys hold the rest of the team accountable. They make my job easier from an administrative perspective. Guys are locked in and focused because the leadership demands it.” Running a wing-T offense out of the pistol formation, the Skyhawks are a hybrid offense that runs despite their formations, making it appear as if

they are in passing sets. Maloney wants Johnsburg to establish the run but is confident the offense can spread the ball through the air with Brengman under center. “Our passing game, we’ve got the ability to spread people out in a traditional spread offense,” Maloney said. “Again, put guys in space and identify the weaknesses of the defense and pick that yardage up.” Coming off “one of the best offseasons” in the program’s recent history is one reason Johnsburg senior tight end and linebacker Ben Stillwell is looking forward to his final season. Having worked alongside Brengman, the confidence exuding from the Johnsburg quarterback hasn’t gone unnoticed by Stillwell. But through whatever struggles the Skyhawks may endure, Stillwell is eager to capture that elusive victory. “That’s what gets me going through practices,” Stillwell said. “Kind of all the naysayers in town and the county, just that thought of getting that first win for me as a varsity football player – it’s a great thing to think about.”

Thunder goalkeeper plays key role • SOCCER Continued from page C1 “It was a nice cross from my teammate and I just saw the opportunity,” Jandron said of his goal. “First goal of the season, feels good to kind of start the season off right.” Grayslake North (1-1) responded almost four minutes later as senior Andreas Thedorf converted on a penalty

kick, striking the ball hard into the right corner to tie the score. The Knights had a great opportunity to take the lead during a sequence 10 minutes before halftime when they received three consecutive corner kicks. They failed to convert, however, punctuated by Woodstock North goalkeeper Ricky Rodriguez making a great save on the third corner kick to preserve the tie.

Although ending the game on penalty kicks wasn’t ideal, it was required based on tournament rules. “We have a young group, still trying to find their feet and get used to each other,” Knights coach Adam DeCaluwe said. “… Still didn’t pressure their goalkeeper as much as I would have liked in regulation, but again we did better behind the ball, and that’s a step in the right direction.”

Cary-Grove, the Class 6A state runner-up last year, opens the football season tied for the No. 4 spot in The Associated Press polls, which were released Wednesday. Media outlets around the state voted for the first rankings of the season. Marian Central is sixth in Class 5A and Richmond-Burton is No. 10 in Class 4A. Crystal Lake South, which hosts Marian in Friday’s opener, was among the teams receiving votes in Class 6A. C-G was 13-1 last season, losing to Crete-Monee, 33-26, in the state championship game. The Trojans graduated 17 starters, but have some key offensive linemen returning and should benefit from a sophomore team that was 9-0 last year. C-G is tied with Rock Island for the No. 4 spot.

Mooney returns at QB for Jacobs and Dundee-Crown returns most of its starters from a team that opened with three consecutive victories last year. C-G lost a lot in talent and leadership, but the Trojans have such a strong tradition and have an impressive offensive line, led by Trevor Ruhland and Michael Gomez, both of whom were Northwest Herald All-Area first-team selections. Plus, junior quarterback Jason Gregoire got a taste of varsity while playing three games for injured Quinn Baker last season. One start was in the playoffs. “Every year there’s new

challenges, regardless of who you have coming back,” Trojans coach Brad Seaburg said. “The constant issue you have is finding leadership. That’s where we’re at right now. There’s talent in our building. I think we’re going to be pretty good.” Jacobs has the area’s leading returning passer in quarterback Bret Mooney, who was second in the area with 2,046 yards. Coach Bill Mitz has led the Eagles to the playoffs three consecutive seasons, but they have not won an FVC title since sharing one with Crystal Lake Central in 1979. South found its offensive catalyst in quarterback Austin Rogers a few games into last season and he returns to again lead the Gators, who always

seem to be a factor in the race. “Again, the FVC Valley is going to be a dog fight,” Ahsmann said. “Cary-Grove is always a top team in the state, while all the others continue to improve.” Huntley coach John Hart made a favorable impression in his first season with the Red Raiders, taking them to the Class 7A playoffs and second place in the Valley. Prairie Ridge definitely wants back into the race after its first losing season since 2003. “We have four players who played significant minutes in the state championship game in 2011,” Schremp said. “So we have players with several years of experience ready to lead the pack.”

A three-way tie for medalist honors highlighted Huntley’s 146-150 Fox Valley Conference boys golf win over Jacobs on Wednesday at Randall Oaks in West Dundee. Jacobs’ Jack Ramsett and Huntley’s Brad Spoeth and Tyler Ross shot even-par 36. All four golfers for both teams shot a 40 or better. Trent Craig and Riley Wick of Huntley and Chris Boyle of Jacobs each shot a 37, with Justin Lenzini adding a 40 for the Golden Eagles.

TENNIS: U.S. OPEN

Venus falls in 2nd round By HOWARD FENDRICH The Associated Press NEW YORK – After her latest early Grand Slam exit, Venus Williams was asked what the future holds for her at the U.S. Open. In one breath, Williams brushed aside the unspoken reference to retirement, saying, “I definitely want to come back for the atmosphere.” And in the next, she added, “I mean, next year’s Open is so far away right now.” At 33, slowed the past couple of years by an autoimmune disease that saps energy, and hampered much of this season by a bad back, Williams knows by now that such queries are going to arrive, particularly after results such as her 6-3, 2-6, 7-6 (5) loss to 56thranked Zheng Jie of China on a wet Wednesday at Flushing

Venus Williams looks skyward Wednesday during her loss to Jie Zheng during the second round of the U.S. Open in New York. Meadows. It is the third year in a row that the two-time champion is out of the U.S. Open after two rounds. “If I didn’t think I had anything in the tank, I wouldn’t be here,” said Williams, who was ranked No. 1 in 2002 and is currently 60th. “I feel like I

do, and that’s why I’m here.” The American acquitted herself well for stretches, erasing deficits over and over again, until she simply ran out of solutions against Zheng, a former top-15 player and twice a major semifinalist.

Small wins 10th Illinois PGA Championship title OLYMPIA FIELDS – From 2003 to 2010, it wasn’t a question of who was going to win the Illinois PGA Championship, it was more a question of by how much. In that span, Mike Small won eight consecutive title, the last by 11 strokes in 2010 on the South Course at Olympia Fields Country Club. Having been shut out the past two years, Small, the University of Illinois golf coach, returned to the site of that last major and won the 91st Illinois PGA Championship by four strokes Wednesday. “I was happy to be back at Olympia,” said Small, who won his record 10th career Illinois PGA Championship with a three-

day total of 4-under-par 209. “This never gets old, and that’s why we compete.” Second-round leader Matt Slowinski of Glen Oak Country Club, Travis Johns of Medinah Country Club and Curtis Malm of St. Charles Country Club finished tied for second at even-par 213.

BEARS: 5 PLAYERS TO WATCH

Bubble may burst for Webb, others By KEVIN FISHBAIN kfishbain@shawmedia.com Preseason games are another piece to the forming-the-roster puzzle. The fourth preseason game is the last piece, and the final opportunity for fringe roster players to make a good impression. Those bubble players are not only playing to get on the Bears’ final roster, but also to show enough to the rest of the league so they can have options if they get cut. This may be the least surprising list of our preseason series of “five players to watch.” Many roster spots are locked up, and we have shined the spotlight on these players since training camp began last month. The coaches have plenty of puzzles pieces to consider when making their decision to cut 22 players by Saturday afternoon, and for these five bubble players, they want to make the last puzzle piece count in a positive manner. Here are the five Bears to watch in Thursday night’s preseason finale against the Browns: 1. J’Marcus Webb: J. Webb Nation is under immense pressure. Webb has lost the starting job at right tackle to rookie Jordan Mills, and his fight now is to make the team as a backup swing tackle. His experience on both sides is valuable, and the fact that Jonathan Scott could not return from his knee injury this week helps Webb’s cause. Still, the preseason finale is important for Webb, who had two penalties in Oakland and has struggled with his consistency. 2. Brandon Hardin: The Bears’ third-round pick in 2012 has yet to make noise in the preseason. There were obviously high hopes for Hardin before his season-ending

neck injury last August, but he has not played in a game that counts since 2010. Anthony Walters has been ahead of Hardin on the depth chart, and Hardin needs to show the skills that made him a thirdround pick on Thursday night. 3. Fendi Onobun: In three preseason games, Onobun has been targeted five times and has zero catches. He does have three drops, but the Bears seem to want it to work with the extremely athletic tight end. Marc Trestman called Onobun’s play in preseason games “uncharacteristically inconsistent,” lauding Onobun’s play in practice. As he competes with Kyle Adams and Steve Maneri to back up Martellus Bennett, Onobun would be best served to secure the football and get out of his funk in his final preseason game. 4. Armando Allen: A key special-teamer and changeof-pace third running back, Allen’s hamstring injury set him back, and allowed undrafted rookie Michael Ford to put on a show. Ford has a 100-yard kickoff return and a highlight-reel 15-yard touchdown run. Allen hasn’t played since Carolina. Assuming he’s healthy enough to get his reps, Allen may have some work to do to nail down his roster spot, especially if Ford has another strong outing. 5. Terrence Toliver: There is still very little clarity at the wide receiver position behind Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery. Earl Bennett’s concussion also factors in the team’s roster decisions. Eric Weems, Joe Anderson and Marquess Wilson appear to have the edge, which puts the onus on Toliver to stay in the picture. He made some big plays during camp and got a few first-team reps against Oakland, but he only has one catch this preseason.

These Bears will make it 1

To be clear, this prediction is based strictly on my observations throughout training camp and the preseason. In addition to the 23 starters (I’m just lumping Corey Wootton and Shea McClellin at left end for now), it seems clear to me that Josh McCown, Michael Bush, Steve Maneri, Earl Bennett, Marquess Wilson, James Brown, Jonathan Scott, Nate Collins, Cornelius Washington, D.J. Williams, Khaseem Greene, Zack Bowman and Craig Steltz have made the 53-man roster. That’s the 39 I wrote about in my column. I had my doubts about Bennett, but at this point they haven’t shown the depth to be able to save his money.

2

Of the players I haven’t mentioned, I’d give Blake Costanzo, Sherrick McManis. Michael Ford and Tony Fiammetta have the next best chances to be Bears. It’s at this end of the roster that special teams really matter and these four can be difference-makers.

3

The position I’m least certain about is quarterback. For reasons I can’t explain, coach Marc Trestman seems to really admire Jordan Palmer, maybe enough that he does stick.

Ford looks like he will be No. 3 running back • ARKUSH Continued from page C1 Michael Ford has probably won the No. 3 running back job over Armando Allen, unless this Bears staff believes you can’t lose a job because of injury. If they do, and if Allen is 100 percent, I’d look for both of these kids to treat every touch they get as if it’s the last play of the Super Bowl. It’s not clear to me if Tony Fiammetta, Kyle Adams and Onobun are fighting for one job or two, or if the fullback and H-back are different or interchangeable in this offense. Either way, I expect two of the three make it, one by being the best blocker against the Browns and the other the best receiver. Wide receiver is the X-factor on the Bears’ final roster count. Assuming Eric Weems is one of them, it wouldn’t be shocking to see them keep five, six or seven, but it will only be six or seven if Joe Anderson and at least one of the other youngsters play like the most interesting men in the world

against the Browns. It seems the competition may already be over on the offensive and defensive lines and Marc Trestman and Phil Emery just have to see who’s healthy Saturday, and who will be soon, to make their final decisions. It would be crazy if Kyle Long and Jordan Mills didn’t get some work against Cleveland but they will both be starting in Week 1. The only two who could impact their futures with stellar play against the Browns are J’Marcus Webb and Zach Minter. I suspect the linebacker decisions have already been made as well, but the secondary play against Cleveland will be fascinating to watch. There are eight defensive backs still on the roster besides the four starters and Isaiah Frey and any combination of three, four or five of them could still make the team. • Hub Arkush covers the Bears for Shaw Media and HubArkush.com.

Running back Armando Allen is trying to make the Bears’ roster after being cut in training camp last year.

Bears on fringe cling to hope LAKE FOREST – One year ago this Saturday, Armando Allen got the call. He climbed the steps to the second floor of Halas Hall. He sat down in Lovie Smith’s office. He listened quietly to the message that he knew by then was coming. The Bears had made their final cuts, and Allen was one of them. “It was a quick meeting,” said Allen, a versatile running back who played at Notre Dame. “You don’t want a long meeting. You kind of discuss where things went wrong, and also what you can do to make you a better player. Nothing over-exaggerated.” Nothing fun, either. The Bears will cut almost two dozen players between now and 5 p.m. Saturday, when the NFL requires all of its teams to establish a 53-man roster for the regular season. Some of the released players will rejoin the Bears as part of an eight-man practice squad, but most will return home and hope their agent can help them find another shot at their dream. Already, the 75 remaining Bears have outlasted hundreds of peers across the league. The Bears’ roster featured 90 players when training camp started more than a month ago in Bourbonnais. After occasional roster moves during camp – drop an extra kicker, sign an extra tight end – the first round of cuts arrived this week

BEARS INSIDER Tom Musick as 15 players were let go. Defensive end Aston Whiteside was not among them. “You notice a lot of guys are gone,” said Whiteside, who played at Abilene Christian. “But other than that, they’ve still got the music playing and things like that. “The first day they make the cuts, everybody looks around to see who’s been cut. But then it goes right back to normal.” Maybe not everyday normal, but football normal, where lots of talented people lose jobs. Few situations mirror the NFL. Imagine another example of a company recruiting an employee, spending months to train that employee, and then firing that employee upon the conclusion of that training. “I can’t think of any,” Allen said. “Can you?” No. Look past the star players, and the Bears’ locker room is filled with football survivors. Allen was drafted by Tampa Bay, cut by Tampa Bay, signed by the Bears, cut by the Bears and signed by the Bears. Whiteside was signed by Dallas,

cut by Dallas, signed by the Bears, cut by the Bears and signed by the Bears. How about the journey of fourth-year fullback Tony Fiammetta? He was drafted by Carolina, cut by Carolina, signed by Dallas, cut by Dallas, signed by New England, cut by New England and signed by the Bears. Along the way, Fiammetta has started 17 games in the NFL and appeared in 17 others. Now, he’s trying to earn one of the final spots on the Bears’ 53-man roster. “I think just to get to the league, you have to be a survivor, just to endure the sport itself,” Fiammetta said. “You’ve got to be a strong-minded person to play the game.” And if you get cut, Fiammetta said, you use the experience to reflect and improve. “Experiencing that, going through adversity, makes you reassess where you are in your life, and it makes you appreciate what you have,” Fiammetta said. “After going through being cut, I definitely appreciate the game more. I think I’ve learned a lot from it.” That said, Fiammetta hopes that his phone stays silent this week. “No news,” he said, “is good news.” • Northwest Herald sports columnist Tom Musick can be reached at tmusick@ shawmedia.com and on Twitter @tcmusick.

TEXAS A&M

Manziel to sit half of Aggies’ opener By KRISTIE RIEKEN The Associated Press HOUSTON – Johnny Football’s season will start a little late. Johnny Manziel was suspended for the first half of Texas A&M’s opening game against Rice on Saturday for what the school called an “inadvertent” violation of NCAA rules by signing autographs. The penalty appears to have brought a quick end to an investigation that could have ruined the seventh-ranked Aggies’ upcoming season. The school issued a statement Wednesday saying it declared the Heisman Trophy winner ineligible and that the NCAA agreed to reinstate Manziel after he sits out the first half against the underdog Owls. “I am proud of the way both Coach Sumlin and Johnny handled this situation, with integrity and honesty,” Texas A&M Chancellor John Sharp said in the statement. “We all take the Aggie Code of Honor very seriously and there is no evidence that either the university or Johnny violated that code.” The quarterback was being investigated by the NCAA for allegedly accepting money for signing autographs for memorabilia brokers, a violation of NCAA rules that could have led to a much longer suspension. ESPN first reported the allegations against Manziel earlier this month. According to the statement, Texas A&M and the NCAA “confirmed there is no evidence Manziel received mon-

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel has been suspended for the first half of the Aggies’ season opener against Rice on Saturday for what the school said Wednesday, was an “inadvertent” violation of NCAA rules by signing autographs. ey in exchange for autographs based on currently available information and statements by Manziel.” Conditions for reinstatement include Manziel discussing his actions with teammates and A&M revising how it educates student-athletes about signing autographs. “Student-athletes are often asked for autographs from fans, but unfortunately, some individuals’ sole motivation in seeking an autograph is for resale,” said Kevin Lennon, NCAA vice president of academic and membership affairs. “It is important that schools are cognizant and educate student-athletes about situations in which there is a strong likelihood that the autograph seeker plans to resell the items.” He likely will be replaced in the starting lineup by either

junior Matt Joeckel or freshman Kenny Hill. Joeckel has thrown only 11 passes in his college career. The news of Manziel’s suspension was the talk of Twitter on Wednesday afternoon, with many questioning the length of the suspension. Former NFL and MLB star Deion Sanders was incredulous at the brevity of Manziel’s suspension, after Dez Bryant was suspended for an entire season while at Oklahoma State after lying about having dinner with Sanders. “Can we investigate the investigators? @DezBryant got suspended a season 4 lying about a dinner that wasnt a violation & Manziel gets a half,” Sanders tweeted soon after the ruling was made public. The decision also had a major impact in Las Vegas, where the odds of Manziel’s chances of repeating as a

Heisman winner and Texas A&M’s chances of winning the national championship shifted dramatically Wednesday. RJ Bell, the founder of sports betting web site Pregame.com, said that Manziel’s chances of winning the Heisman jumped from 12-to-1 to 6-to-1 on Wednesday, and the team’s shot at the title increased from 18-to-1 to 10-to-1. The latest problem isn’t the first time off-the-field trouble has put Manziel’s career in jeopardy. Manziel was arrested last summer after a bar fight near campus and charged with disorderly conduct, possession of the fake ID and failure to identify himself to police. It was an incident that put him in danger of being suspended from school and left him having to earn the starting job in fall camp. Manziel admitted this June that he failed to identify himself to police after the altercation. As part of a plea deal, other charges against the 20-year-old, including disorderly conduct, were dismissed, and it looked like Manziel’s trouble was behind him before the latest problems came to light. Manziel became the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy last season, setting numerous school and Southeastern Conference records while leading Texas A&M to an 11-2 mark and a victory over No. 1 Alabama in its first season in the SEC. He followed that with a high-profile offseason of road trips to Las Vegas and the NBA Finals.

Let the pros do teaching

Northwest Herald / NWHerald.com

FIVE-DAY PLANNER TEAM

THURSDAY

OUTDOORS Steve Sarley I’ve fished with all three of my kids. As a matter of fact, I am proud to say that I’ve taught them most of what they know about the sport. I’ve always thought I did a good job and if I asked them, they’d probably agree to keep peace in the family. I learned something about teaching kids about fishing recently. Being a parent doesn’t automatically make one a competent teacher. Sometimes a parent needs to first watch a professional fishing teacher do it the right way. You know, school teachers are trained and mentored. They just don’t get thrown in front of a classroom full of kids. Teaching the right way is a skill. I had the opportunity to get out on Wisconsin’s Delavan Lake with Steve Everetts from Finseekers Guide Service (847-707-1807). It’s always a pleasure to fish with Everetts. We always do well with Delavan’s abundant population of big bass and pike. This trip, I brought my 15-yearold nephew, Cullen Heimburger, along. The kid is passionate about fishing. He is quiet, learns fast, is patient and he pays attention. We fished with artificials while Everetts hung out four rods with large suckers to bounce on the bottom while we tossed plastic worms. The line-counter reels on the sucker rigs were set open and started clicking when a fish picked up the bait and began to run with it. Setting the hook on a rig like this is not easy. It is far different than most people are used to doing. Normally, you set the hook hard and start reeling. Not this way. I began to explain to Cullen how to accomplish a hook set when I realized I should clam up and let Everetts do it. A rod went off. Everetts told Cullen to pick up the rod and wait. He explained that the fish was running and that we’d watch and wait for it to stop. He told Cullen that he should start reeling when he told him to. “Reel fast, really fast.” Everetts

During a stressful day on the job, you’ll hear many people vow, “I’m going to quit this darned job and go and open a bait shop.” They should be careful what they wish for. Most bait shop proprietors work extremely hard and put in longer hours than most folks do. Worst of all, they are so busy working they seldom have time to enjoy fishing. There is one bait-and-tackle retailer who breaks the mold and is able to enjoy his time on the water as often as possible. That man is Dave Kranz, owner of Dave’s Bait, Tackle & Taxidermy in Crystal Lake. Kranz was destined to be in the bait shop business. His mother owned a picture that Kranz drew in his early youth. It’s a drawing of a building that has a sign that reads, “Bait Shop.” The building in the drawing features a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, just like Dave’s current establishment does. Kranz, 54, who lives with his wife, Linda, in Woodstock, understands that fishing is not only relaxation, but also part of his job. People come into Kranz’s shop looking for advice on where to fish and what to catch them with.

told him. “When I tell you to set the hook, set it as hard as you can, but don’t stop reeling. Keep going.” Cullen did as instructed and the fish was soon in the net. Cullen handled four strikes and handled them expertly with Everett’s instruction. He was told to keep the rod tip up and not to let the fish make any slack, but he mostly did it on his own. Cullen’s four fish were largemouth bass that measured 17, 19, 19½ and 20¾ inches. It was a phenomenal day by any standards. I realized that if I had been doing the coaching, I would have been shouting and not so calm. I would have repeated myself and probably have sounded condescending. I may have even let a swear word or two fly from my mouth. It was nice to see the boy get a lesson on fishing while I received a lesson on teaching.

Lake Michigan • Captain Bob Rossa of Migrator Charters (www.ALakeMichiganCharter.com) says, “Big kings have been starting to stage closer to shore this past week, while others, along with lakers, steelhead, and Cohoes are still out in the deeper water. Fish from 50 to 100 feet for the kings. If you are looking for a mixed bag, try fishing from 160 to 300 feet of water. Moonshine’s Orange Flounder, and RV Sand Burr have been very good for all species of fish. Most fish have been in the top 80 feet of the water column, regardless of the depth you are in. Some salmon are starting to show up in the harbors.” • Call Wisconsin’s Lake Michigan Fishing Hotline at 414-382-7920 for the latest fishing information for Lake Michigan and its tributaries.

FISHING REPORT Northern Illinois ��� Dave Kranz from Dave’s Bait, Tackle & Taxidermy in Crystal Lake reports: “Fishing has been spotty. It changes from day-today with the weather. Extended periods of heat and bluebird skies seem to kill most fishing and beat up the fishermen. Smaller lakes and ponds in the mornings and evenings can yield bass on Senkos. Walleye will activate on leeches on

Dan Johnson of St. Croix fishing rods has a strong relationship with Kranz. “Dave is one of the better business people out there,” Johnson said. “He runs a quality operation and seems to really have the respect of his customers.” Kranz is quite proud of his ex-employees who have gone on to higher educations and life successes. Working behind the counter at Kranz’s was many a McHenry County youth’s first job. Todd Toppert was one of Kranz’s first employees. “Dave was a great boss and taught me a lot about life, not just fishing or the tackle business,” Toppert said. At his annual weekend open house in the spring, Kranz gives away rod and reel combos to the first kids to cross his threshold each day. Kranz is always proud when someone tells him they got their first rod at his event years ago and now are bringing their own son or daughter to get their first rod. “I have a passion for what I do,” said Kranz, who has built a loyal customer base the past 24 years. “It’s definitely not just a job. It’s about helping people. It’s about helping the sports. It’s not hard to get up for work in the morning.”

Kranz would be delinquent in his duties if he wasn’t able to field test the equipment he carries nor able to know what is biting and where. It’s the educational aspect that allows a local shop like Kranz’s to be able to compete with the “big box” stores. People who come in to a local Dave Kranz shop expect their questions to be answered knowledgably by an expert, not by a high school kid who has been working in the shoe department for the past six months. It’s not only knowledge that counts. Product selection is important. A small shop may not be able to carry everything a monster store can, but the local shop can order in anything a customer needs and have it in a day or two. Also, the major chains usually don’t inventory the latest gear until it makes it onto the pages of their catalogs. That means the hottest items may not be available until next year. Respect and support from one’s suppliers helps make a business successful. Kranz gets that respect and support because he pays his bills promptly, manages his business well and promotes better quality merchandise.

CUBS ANALYSIS

AMERICAN LEAGUE

Cubs can only bank on hope By GORDON WITTENMYER Chicago Sun-Times LOS ANGELES – Former Los Angeles Dodgers pitching great Don Newcombe – the original Cy Young Award winner – gets flashbacks to the 1960s when he watches left-hander Clayton Kershaw and right-hander Zack Greinke pitch for the Dodgers these days. He sees the ghosts of Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale, an unparalleled 1-2, left-right pitching punch in their primes who combined to win four of the five Cy Young awards from 1962-66 – leading the Dodgers to a 95-win average and three World Series appearances (two titles) in that span. “It’s so close,” Newcombe said, “that I can’t possibly see a way that I can give you a word that would make them appear different.” You don’t have to convince the Cubs. They just got shut out for the third time in five games by the Dodgers on Wednesday – and that was by back-end rotation guy Ricky Nolasco. Even after surviving the Greinke-Kershaw gauntlet earlier in the week with a win Tuesday – thanks to Travis Wood’s brass-marbles pitching against Kershaw – the Cubs finished 1-6 against the pitching-rich Dodgers this season, losing to five different starters along the way. The point isn’t so much that the Dodgers have such great pitching – or even that nobody else in the game has as dominant a 1-2 frontline tandem. “Honestly, I don’t think anybody does,” Cubs pitching coach Chris Bosio said. The point for the Cubs is this: “I’ve never seen pitching this good across baseball in my 30 years in the game,” Cubs manager Dale Sveum says. And nobody exemplifies that more than the pair of Cy Young winners at the top of the Dodgers rotation. And what that could mean for the Cubs is the flipside of Newcombe’s 50-year flashback. If Newcombe, Bosio and

Dodgers blank Cubs; Puig benched in 5th LOS ANGELES – Edwin Jackson’s pitching was good enough. His fielding, not so much. His throwing error cost the Cubs two runs in a 4-0 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday. Jackson (7-14) gave up four runs – two earned – and six hits against his old team. He struck out five and walked two on a season-high 124 pitches in dropping his third straight decision. After a pair of leadoff singles in the fifth, Dodgers pitcher Ricky Nolasco bunted and Jackson threw the ball past third base. One run scored on the error and Skip Schumaker, who replaced Yasiel Puig in right field, hit an RBI single, making it 4-0. Puig left after four innings and had a closed-door meeting with manager Don Mattingly and general manager Ned Colletti after the game. “I felt I was going to get a better effort out of Skip,” Mattingly said, declining to specify exactly why the 22-year-old Cuban rookie was pulled. “I’m doing it for what’s best for the ballclub.” Puig didn’t slide into second base to try to break up a double play in the first inning and visibly reacted after striking out in the third. “I wasn’t prepared well for each pitch,” he said through a Spanish translator. “It was a good decision. He mentioned Skip could come in and do a better job.” – The Associated Press Sveum are right, the Cubs – who’ve been shut out seven times during an 8-22 stretch since late July – haven’t looked this bad at the plate since the pitcher’s mound was 5 inches higher. The last time the Cubs looked this talent-thin in relation to the rest of the league was during that Koufax-Drysdale heyday, when Billy Williams and Ron Santo were breaking into the league – and the growing-pains Cubs were losing 103 games in 1962, hitting a franchise-worst .238 in both 1963 and ’65 and waiting for Fergie Jenkins to eventually

come to the rescue of the pitching staff in 1967. This month alone, six different Dodgers starters produced a 1.62 ERA against the Cubs in seven starts. Sound familiar? Back then, Koufax and Drysdale went 22-11 with a 1.88 ERA in 41 combined starts against the Cubs during that five-year stretch through 1966. The Cardinals’ Bob Gibson, 13-6, 2.56 in 21 starts. San Francisco’s Juan Marichal, 10-4, 2.10 in 15. It wasn’t until Koufax retired after that ’66 season and Drysdale was on the decline – and Jenkins began a stretch of six straight 20win seasons – that the Cubs under Leo Durocher put together six straight winning seasons. And even then, Gibson’s Cardinals won the next two pennants, and the Giants still won more games than the Cubs over those six seasons. As for now, “It’s not a mystery that things get a little haywire after those trades [at the July deadline the last two years],” Sveum said, “but obviously we know the process, and obviously we’ll reap the rewards next year or the year after that because of the people we got.” If Jake Arrieta can bring more command more often. If high draft pick Pierce Johnson pans out. If trade acquisition Arodys Vizcaino can get – and stay – healthy. If minor-league trade guy C.J. Edwards reaches his ceiling. If, if, if. “Anytime you’re talking about still calling guys up, that’s kind of a crapshoot,” said rotation centerpiece Jeff Samardzija. “Guys need to get here and prove themselves – consistently prove themselves. Kind of like you’ve seen out of Woody. And that takes time. “To come out and say before they get here that that’s going to be that, it’s tough to say. But I think we’re going in the right direction.” • Gordon Wittenmyer is a sports writer for the Chicago Sun-Times who can be reached at gwittenmyer@ suntimes.com.

MLB ROUNDUP

Streaking Red Sox edge Orioles The ASSOCIATED PRESS BOSTON – Pinch hitter Mike Carp’s bloop single to left in the eighth dropped just beyond the glove of Baltimore third baseman Manny Machado, scoring Jarrod Saltalamacchia from second with the tiebreaking run and lifting the Boston Red Sox to a 4-3 win over the Orioles on Wednesday night. Craig Breslow (4-2) got two outs to earn the win and Koji Uehara got his 14th save with a perfect ninth for the AL East-leading Red Sox, who won their fourth straight. Chris Davis hit his major league-leading 47th homer and added an RBI double for Baltimore. Rangers 12, Mariners 4: At Seattle, Leonys Martin homered and drove in a career-high four runs, and Texas roughed up Felix Hernandez in a win over Seattle. The AL West-leading Rangers tagged Hernandez (12-8) for nine runs and 11 hits in threeplus innings.

Blue Jays 7, Yankees 2: At Toronto, Edwin Encarnacion hit a two-run home run, rookie Todd Redmond snapped a seven-start winless streak and Toronto beat New York. Rays 4, Angels 1: At St. Petersburg, Fla., Chris Archer pitched seven strong innings, David DeJesus scored twice, and Tampa Bay ended Los Angeles’ four-game winning streak. Royals 8, Twins 1: At Minneapolis, Salvador Perez had four hits and two home runs, Danny Duffy pitched 6 2/3 shutout innings, and Kansas City beat Minnesota.

ti tagged Adam Wainwright, leading Homer Bailey and the Reds over St. Louis to avoid a three-game sweep. Phillies 6, Mets 2: At New York, Cole Hamels pitched seven strong innings and handed himself some much-needed run support, sending Philadelphia past New York. Nationals 4, Marlins 3: At Washington, Ian Desmond had three hits, including the go-ahead RBI single in the seventh inning, and Washington kept pace on the fringes of the playoff race with a rain-delayed win over Miami. Rockies 5, Giants 4: At Denver, Jhoulys Chacin did not allow a hit for 62/3 innings and hustled for a crucial RBI to help Colorado beat San Francisco.

INTERLEAGUE Braves 3, Indians 2: At Atlanta, Chris Johnson singled to left with two outs in the ninth inning for his first career walk-off hit, and Atlanta won again at home, beating Cleveland.

In this image taken with multiple exposures, White Sox starter Chris Sale pitches Wednesday during the sixth inning against the Houston Astros at U.S. Cellular Field. Sale struck out 12 in the Sox’s 6-1 win.

WHITE SOX ANALYSIS

Dominant Sale in total control By DARYL VAN SCHOUWEN Chicago Sun-Times CHICAGO – White Sox veteran left-hander David Purcey doesn’t see Chris Sale’s displays of emotion as a detriment in any way. “I mean, he’s a competitor,’’ Purcey said before Sale went on a strikeout rampage against the Houston Astros in the last of a three-game series Wednesday night at U.S. Cellular Field. “Pretty much every guy in this locker room is a competitor. That drive to be better and push yourself to compete is in every one of us. It’s a good thing to have.’’ So is exceptional stuff and good command, which Sale used to strike out 12 over eight-plus innings in a 6-1 Sox victory. “Observing what he does, he’s fun to watch,’’ said Purcey, who like Sale was a first-round draft choice (by Toronto in 2004). “He’s unique because his arm angle is not typical. His slider breaks really well, and he can control it, and his fastball is a lot harder to pick up from that angle. “As long as he goes out there and attacks the zone, is aggressive and makes them put the ball in play, he’ll be successful.’’ Sale has lost control of his emotions on several occasions this year, overthrowing a pitch and hitting the Indians’ Michael Brantley and the Tigers’ Prince Fielder after giving up home runs. After getting ripped for four home runs against the Rangers in his start Friday, the 24-year-old lefty slammed his glove and punched a water cooler in the dugout. He later said he was embarrassed by that scene, and as always, expressed regret for his actions. Manager Robin Ventura gave Sale a pass when talking about Sale’s fire before Wednesday’s game. “I’m all right with that,’’ Ventura said. “Guys’ emotions run high when they’re not doing well. That’s just being competitive. He’s emotional. That’s part of it. When it’s a negative thing to the team or he tries to show somebody else up, that’s a problem.’’ Sale didn’t have much to be riled up about Wednesday. He set the tone by striking out the first three Astros he faced and fanning seven in the first three innings. There were no K’s in the fourth, but he needed five pitches to get through it. The 44-87 Astros, who had

Sale, Garcia lift Sox CHICAGO – Chris Sale struck out 12 over eight-plus dominant innings, and Avisail Garcia hit a three-run homer to lead the White Sox to a 6-1 win over the Houston Astros on Wednesday night. Garcia finished with three hits for the Sox, who have won 10 of their past 12 games. Sale (10-12) bounced back from a start Friday against Texas in which he allowed a career-worst four home runs. Against Houston, he gave up only one run on four hits and left to standing ovation after allowing his second walk. – The Associated Press out-fanned their opponents 1,239 to 857 going into the game, were seemingly easy pickings for Sale to build up his strikeout numbers. Against the Astros on June 14 in Houston, Sale became the third pitcher in the past 100 years to lose a game while striking out 14plus batters and allowing no earned runs. This one shaped up with similar possibilities because Sale, while striking out 11 through six innings with two hits allowed, led only 1-0 on an RBI single by Paul Konerko against Astros rookie starter Jarred Cosart. Cosart, who made his eighth start, is having one of the best starts for a rookie pitcher in Astros history. In each of his starts, he pitched at least five innings and allowed no more than three runs, and his 1.59 ERA is the lowest by an Astros starter in his first eight starts. After Carter’s homer – his 26th on a belt-high changeup – Sale struck out Brandon Barnes for his 12th of the game and 193rd of the season, pushing him past his 2012 rookie total and giving him four starts with 12 or more strikeouts – the most in franchise history. After Sale, the night belonged to the Sox’ Garcias. Avisail Garcia’s three-run homer off Lucas Harrell highlighted a four-run seventh that also included a walk, stolen base and nifty slide at home by Leury Garcia for another Sox run. Leury, starting at shortstop and leading off, walked and scored twice and added a sacrifice fly in the eighth. Avisail Garcia’s homer was his first as a Sox. He had three hits. • Daryl Van Schouwen is a sportswriter for the Chicago-Sun-Times who can be reached at dvanschouwen@ suntimes.com.

Dear Abby: While I was out of town, my husband, “Miles,” ran into his high school girlfriend at a party hosted by good friends of ours. She has been through a bad divorce, and Miles insists his desire to keep in touch with her is merely concern for a dear friend. Until I put a stop to it, he was calling her every night, talking with her for at least an hour at a time. He said there was nothing more to it. I have now insisted he call her only once a week and in my presence. He’s complying, but it distresses me to hear him enjoy the conversation so much. Miles truly cares about her, and she makes him laugh. He says he loves only me and will never leave me. He’s a good man and I believe him, but ... How should I handle this? I don’t want to forbid him to talk to her, but I am feeling very insecure. Am I foolish to let their contact continue? We have been married 30 years. –

Threatened In Kentucky Dear Threatened: Tell your husband you know he loves you, has good morals and

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips would never leave you, but you feel intimidated by his renewed relationship with his high school sweetheart. Tell him you know he is kindhearted, but for YOUR mental health to please consider winding down these conversations. And it would be a kindness for him to recommend a counselor to his friend to help her resolve her issues. Dear Abby: I’m 27 and the mother of a 6-year-old boy. I kiss him on the mouth and never thought twice about it until today, when my husband told me it’s “creepy” that I do it at my son’s age. In my family we have always kissed on the mouth, and I still kiss my mother this way. Is it “weird” or inappropriate? I didn’t think so, but now I’m concerned. –

“Smoochy” In Tacoma, Wash. Dear “Smoochy”: Did you also kiss your father on the mouth? Different families have different customs, and

if your husband spent much time around your family, he should have noticed that. I don’t see anything weird or inappropriate about the way you kiss your child. If your son reaches an age where it makes him uncomfortable, I’m sure he’ll let you know. Dear Abby: I work in customer service and have noticed more than half the people who write in abruptly end their emails with “Please advise.” To me, it seems rude and demanding. I feel if a question has already been asked, there is no need to follow up with this phrase. What is the proper etiquette for using this phrase? – Offended In New

Jersey Dear Offended: There is no rule of etiquette pertaining to the use of the phrase “please advise.” Many individuals who write to me for advice end their letters that way. It’s not offensive; it simply means the person is asking for a reply.

Dear Dr. K: My husband recently had a mild heart attack. He’s never been much of a drinker, but now he wants to have wine with dinner every night because he’s heard that it’s good for the heart. What do you think? Dear Reader: Different advice can be needed for different people. There are few “one size fits all” answers in medicine. Most people who drink alcoholic beverages regularly, and in moderation, have a reduced risk of heart attack. Many studies involving tens of thousands of people have shown that. Although red wine gets most of the praise, regular moderate intake of white wine, beer and liquor all have similar effects. Moderate alcohol intake may protect the heart by boosting levels of HDL (“good”) cholesterol to a similar degree. For men, the best “dose” is one to two drinks a day, counting 5 ounces of wine, 12 ounces of beer, or 1 1/2 ounces of liquor as one drink. Women should limit themselves to one drink a day. (Heavy drinking takes a

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff toll on the heart and circulation, along with the liver and other organs.) So moderate alcohol consumption is good for a healthy heart. But you are asking if it is safe or beneficial after a heart attack. To find out, French scientists evaluated 353 men who had recovered from a first heart attack. They observed them from within two months of the attack for about four years. During that time, men who averaged two drinks a day were 59 percent less likely to have additional cardiovascular events than the men who abstained from alcohol. Heavier drinking was less protective. Providing further evidence, a 2010 analysis of more than 16,000 patients found moderate drinking is safe and beneficial for people with cardiovascular disease. That’s reassuring, but it doesn’t necessarily mean

alcohol is right for your husband. Fortunately, moderate alcohol intake does not have a negative interaction with the medicines prescribed most often to heart attack patients: statins, beta blockers, ACE inhibitors and low-dose aspirin. Why did I discourage one patient from having a drink each day? I knew the patient had gotten into trouble with alcohol when he was younger. For that reason, he no longer drank. While a drink a day probably would have reduced his risk of heart troubles, it also might have started him back on the road to alcohol abuse. And excessive alcohol use could have led to many health problems, including heart disease. Alcohol can have powerful effects on the body (and mind), for good or ill. Used in moderation, it can contribute to your husband’s continued recovery.

NBC trying to create big event A giant hourglass structure being built on the rooftop of an abandoned Manhattan car dealership may look like Godzilla’s futuristic toy but instead represents NBC’s hope for the television event of the season. It’s the set for “The Million Second Quiz,” a prime-time competition with Ryan Seacrest as host that will play out over two weeks starting Sept. 9. Someone adept at trivia will win a $2 million prize on the Sept. 19 finale. More than a game, the event is a peek into the future of broadcast television. With the sources for quality content expanding along with the ability of viewers to watch when and how they want, showing big live events like football games and awards shows is becoming the most reliable way broadcast networks can draw a big crowd and distinguish themselves from rivals. “The rewards of doing the same thing every day are relatively small in TV land these days,” said Paul Telegdy, head of alternative and late-night programming at NBC Entertainment. “We have to be taking risks. We have to be doing things to scale. We have to do everything we can to energize the audience.” NBC moved quickly to build the show from scratch after Telegdy heard a pitch from executive producer Stephen Lambert last December. There’s the physical structure, which includes a chamber for the top four players to stay day and night, and a duplicate indoor set in case of rain. Three truck trailers provide 600,000 watts of generator power. Producers also needed to build the infrastructure of the game: composing nearly 25,000 quiz questions, processing applications for the estimated 800 to 1,000 participants in the round-the-clock contest, and building an app that allows people to play at home. The free tablet app became available two weeks ago; NBC won’t say how many have been downloaded, but estimated that 4.5 million “bouts” have already been played online.

County OKs new studio proposed by Disney

John’s partner opening Vegas champagne bar

Zeta-Jones and Douglas ‘taking some time apart’

A gigantic new Disney studio planned for oak-studded ranchland north of Los Angeles has won the approval of Los Angeles County – a milestone in the effort to build the half-million square feet of new production space in a state hard hit by runaway production. County supervisors signed off on Tuesday on the Golden Oak Ranch project in the Santa Clarita Valley, although it still needs state and federal approval, the Los Angeles Times reported. Disney/ABC Studios has spent the past four years attempting to build a high-tech production center in the area that Walt Disney selected decades ago to be the backdrop for his movies and television shows. Rural and a short drive from major studios, the site has been depicted as a jungle, the Old West and other locations in productions such as “Old Yeller,” “Beverly Hills 90210” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End.” Golden Ranch would be one of the largest studio developments in more than a decade, with six pairs of soundstages along with shops, prop and costume storage areas, offices, writers’ bungalows and a commissary.

David Furnish is planning to open a swanky champagne lounge in the same Las Vegas Strip casino where his partner, Sir Elton John, holds a residency. The nearly 3,000-square-foot FIZZ Las Vegas bar is set to debut this fall at Caesars Palace. Developers promise caviar, charcuterie and small plates to complement the champagne and other cocktails. Furnish says he spends so much time in Las Vegas while Elton John performs his show, “The Million Dollar Piano,” that the couple wanted a space to reflect their personal style. The $3.2 million venue will be modeled after their home in Los Angeles and will feature photography from the pair’s personal collection. Managers describe the aesthetic as a “glam-chic” throwback to 1970s designer David Hicks.

A spokeswoman for Catherine Zeta-Jones says the actress and her husband, Michael Douglas, “are taking some time apart to evaluate and work on their marriage.” Publicist Cece Yorke said in an email to The Associated Press Wednesday there would be no further comment. A phone call to a representative for Douglas wasn’t immediately returned. People magazine, citing unnamed sources, first reported Zeta-Jones and Douglas had decided to spend time apart. Zeta-Jones, 43, and Douglas, 68, were married in 2000. They have two children. He battled throat cancer in 2010 and made headlines this summer when he spoke out about one potential cause, oral sex.

Aviation buffs could land in Poplar Grove community Jerry Kuyper POPLAR GROVE – Communities that offer easy access to airports for aviation enthusiasts usually have expensive housing. Lot and house packages typically start at half a million dollars and go up to much higher levels. At Gerstad Builder’s Dawson Creek community, those who seek to soar into the heavens or work on the renovation of an airplane can live near the Poplar Grove Airport and own

a new house starting at $159,990. Company president Roger Gerstad encourages people who work in the aviation field or are interested in it to visit the new housing community and its single-family homes products. Ranch and two-story plans offer 1,292 to 2,929 square feet of living space and are priced from $159,990 to $230,990. Home owners are not subject to annual SSA or Homeowner Association fees that can typically be expected in Illinois new housing communities. “We didn’t think about our nearby location to the Poplar Grove Airport as a positive or negative thing until recently,” Gerstad said. “We started to

discover that many people of all income levels are extremely interested in the aviation industry. Families of modest financial means are just as interested in flying or working on aircraft as wealthy families, thus our new community near the airport is an affordable way to live near something they all love, aviation. “We have seen a variety of families pick our community because of our proximity to the Poplar Grove Airport and we hope that others who have this passion will take a look at what we have to offer out here,” Gerstad said.

By PHILLIP ALDER Newspaper Enterprise Association

Wilson Mizner, a playwright, raconteur and entrepreneur who died in 1933, said, “Not only is a good listener popular everywhere, but after a while he gets to know something.” A good listener at the bridge table is popular with his partner, but less so with his opponents. And he immediately gets to know something. Yesterday, I recommended not being deaf to the auction. This deal is another example. South gets into four spades after East opens three clubs in the third position. West starts off with three top hearts, East playing high-low to show his doubleton, then discarding the club king (top of touching honors as he cannot win the trick). West shifts to a low club. How should South continue? When entering the auction after an opponent opens with a pre-empt, assume partner has six or seven high-card points. That makes South’s four-spade overcall a slight overbid. If he had settled for three spades, which would have been an underbid, North would probably have raised because he had so many

trumps. West thought about sacriicing in ive clubs, but was dissuaded by the unfavorable vulnerability. Note that ive clubs doubled should go down three, minus 800. South won the fourth trick with his club ace and cashed the spade ace. Now he had to ind the diamond queen to make his contract. The bidding gave the answer. West had already shown up with ive hearts to the ace-kingqueen-jack. If he had had the diamond queen as well, he would have opened one heart, not passed, as dealer. South should inesse through East for the diamond queen.

CROSSWORD

HOROSCOPE

▲ ▲

TODAY - Keep a close watch over people with whom you conduct business in the coming months. Someone will play on your emotions in an attempt to make you look bad. If you’re cautious and independent, you’ll come out ahead. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Put time and effort into a major involvement, and you’ll encounter a crackerjack financial opportunity. Trust what you know, not what someone else tells you. Skill development will come in handy later. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Excess will lead to trouble. Assess your situation and you will realize you can make do with less. Aggressive behavior will damage a close relationship, so put the other party’s interests ahead of your own. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Seek adventure and expand your knowledge. The people and places you encounter will feed your imagination and contribute major improvements to your home and work lives. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Avoid a scuffle with someone who is in a position of authority. It would be best for you to make personal changes at home, where you can remain in control and out of trouble. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Make your point heard and your suggestions will be considered. Keep the competition at a distance and your superiors well- informed. Protect your interests and you will excel. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Share your intentions with someone you trust. Now could be the time to suggest some changes to your loved ones. Opportunity will come from an unusual source, but you must be prepared to seize it. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Question the relevant motives before you jump into a joint endeavor. You and the other party probably do not have the same purpose in mind. Going solo may be the answer. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- You’ll be drawn to someone for what you see as their unique qualities. Don’t fall for big talk when you have all the facts you need. Size up your situation to make changes and take control. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- Plan a mini vacation or visit someone who brings you joy. Spending time relaxing and catching up will encourage you to make personal improvements. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Talk less and focus on making a difference. Don’t feel the need to pay for others or to try to buy love. Do something that will raise your profile and your confidence. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- You’ve got everything you need to reach your personal goals. Set your sights high and reach for the stars. You’ll learn what you need to make the right choices. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- A change will do you good. It could involve travel or simply trying a new activity or mingling with a new group. You’ll make some long-lasting connections if you put yourself out there.

No Left Turn

FLING Sun sets on summer with annual LITH festival By JAMI KUNZER jkunzer@shawmedia.com

E

njoy one last summer fling – of a melon – and other activities as Lake in the Hills brings the festival season to an end this weekend. The 13th annual Summer Sunset Festival begins Aug. 30 and runs through Sept. 1 at Sunset Park in Lake in the Hills. Along with the usuals – a carnival, parade, fireworks, Melon Propellin’ and other festivities – this year’s event features a night of wine tasting from 5 to 10:30 p.m. Aug. 30. “That’s our big new thing,” said Trudy Wakeman, Lake in the Hill’s director of parks and recreation. For $10, participants receive a glass and five tickets for wine samples from various wineries. Also new this year, the final band – Mondern Day Romeos – will play during the fireworks, 8:30 to 10 p.m. Sept. 1 on the Main Stage. In previous years, the bands stopped before the fireworks. Other featured bands include Petty Cash, featuring the music of Tom Petty and Johnny Cash, as well as Libido Funk Circus’ dance and rock songs from the 1960s through today. 28 Days will play a wide array of country, pop, classic rock, R&B, dance, disco and Motown, while 7th Heaven will take the stage as one of Chicago’s most popular bands. No Left Turn specializes in rock ’n’ roll oldies, with Lake in the Hills Village President Paul Mulcahy on lead guitar. He’s joined by Dave Frederick on lead vocals and keyboard, Mike Pasternak on bass and acoustic guitar, Tom Stock on rhythm and lead guitar and vocals and Gary Hill on drums and vocals. The group of friends first came together about two years ago, challenged

Libido Funk Circus to take on all the younger bands at Battle of the Bands, Mulcahy said. “We’ve been fooling around with this for a couple of years. ... It’s a lot of fun and something to take up some time,” he said. Interested in music at a younger age, Mulcahy said he felt he never really had the talent for it. While in the Navy, he said he taught himself to play guitar a bit. Then he didn’t touch a guitar for 30 years. “I bought an acoustic guitar and started messing around again,” he said. Some friends were at the same stage so they came together, he said, to play some ’60s and ’70s rock ’n’ roll. “It’s a blast,” he said.

All the festival bands are free, Wakeman stressed, as well as numerous children’s activities at Kids’ Korner Saturday afternoon. Saturday’s 10 a.m. parade will include representatives of the Algonquin Lake in the Hills Interfaith Food Pantry with shopping carts to collect donations, such as canned goods and paper towels. The organization is this year’s parade grand marshal, Wakeman said. More attractions include the Battle of the Bands, Horseshoes Tournament, Sunset 5K, Arts & Crafts Show, food and beer tents, a car show, a bags tournament and the “Got Talent?” competition. “We have a good variety, dancers, singers, violin players,” Wakeman said.

Car chase thriller ‘Getaway’ stalls By JAKE COYLE The Associated Press iam Neeson has some atoning to do. Not because of his hell bent pursuit of vengeance in “Taken” and its sequel, but for the lamentable cottage industry of cheap, imitation thrills those films hath wrought. “Taken” was by no means a groundbreaking achievement. But it was sturdy genre moviemaking, aided by the veteran weight of Neeson. “Getaway,” starring Ethan Hawke, is not that. Its chief tension derives from the question many moviegoers will ask, biting their nails: Is this the worst movie I’ve seen this year? Hawke plays former MORE race car driver Brent ONLINE Manga, a name that Watch the even a cartoon character trailer to would be ashamed of, “Getaway” at and that translates liter- PlanitNorthally as Brent Great. west.com In our first introduction to Brent, he’s motoring furiously through a European capital in a manic car chase. It brings up an intriguing existential question: Is it still a car chase if we don’t yet know the fleer, the pursuer or particularly care about ei-

L

“Getaway” 1/2 H

STARRING: Ethan Hawke, Selena Gomez, Jon Voight, Paul Freeman

PLOT: Brent Magna must get behind the wheel and follow the orders of a mysterious man to save his kidnapped wife. RATED: PG-13 for intense action, violence and mayhem throughout, some rude gestures and language RUNNING TIME: 1 hour, 30 minutes ther of them? It’s an early hint of the overriding trouble with “Getaway”: It tries to put the throttle down before turning the key. We quickly learn Brent’s wife, presumably Mrs. Great, was taken in Sofia, Bulgaria. (The setting is arbitrary, except for its low production costs.) The kidnapper (Jon Voight, mostly only heard and seen as lips on the other end of a phone line) demands Brent drive around Sofia, careening through marketplaces and, under his specific directions, causing various havoc. Brent has little time to deliberate how this will save his wife, and the movie, too, makes scant effort to consider the harm he’s causing. Miraculously, he doesn’t run over anyone despite high-speed maneuvers that would realistically

slaughter bystanders like bugs on a windshield. At some point, Selena Gomez gets in the car, first appearing to be a hoodie-clad carjacker, then revealed as another puppet in the mysterious scheme. Her entry to the film is as smooth as a pop star being shot out of a cannon. Cribbing from countless adrenaline-fueled concept films, from “Speed” to any Jason Statham movie you like, “Getaway” (not to be confused with the two “The Getaway” films based on Jim Thompson’s novel) tries to ride its thin concept, hoping the fumes of constant engine revving are intoxicating. Director Courtney Solomon splices together footage from cameras inside the car (from which the kidnapper eyes his pawns) and from exterior stuntmen-enabled wide shots. The action (all at nighttime) is messily and crudely filmed. The plot mechanics are often laughable. How, then, to explain the film’s sudden elegance in one (and only one) shot that appears toward the end of the film like a parting of the waters? Suddenly, the frantic cutting and the relentlessly grating score dissipate for a lengthy first-person perspective of a car speeding down a rolling, suburban road, gracefully sliding around traffic at dawn. It’s a diamond that can’t make up for the other 89 minutes of rough.

Eric Bana stars in “Closed Circuit.”

‘Closed Circuit,’ a post-privacy thriller By JOCELYN NOVECK The Associated Press

W

e’re all being watched. All the time. That’s a key message of “Closed Circuit,” an entertaining and well-crafted if not overly heartstopping British conspiracy thriller starring Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall. Security cameras are everywhere, giving us birds-eye glimpses of each character, and reminding us that we, too, are never really alone. Such a concept is hardly shocking in 2013. After all, we write an email, and soon an ad pops up telling us where to buy that thing we sort of mentioned. And of course we’ve learned in recent months not only of secret government surveillance but even the “Boyfriend Tracker” app for our phones. Perhaps we really do live in a post-privacy era. But if it’s not a shocking concept, the makers of “Closed Circuit,” an intelligent film directed by John Crowley, have certainly shown how creepy it can be. In the London we see here – one of the most watched places in the world, we learn, in terms of security cameras – you never know who’s around the corner, or

“Closed Circuit”

HHH

STARRING: Eric Bana, Rebecca Hall, Jim Broadbent PLOT: A high-proile terrorism case unexpectedly binds together two ex-lovers on the defense team – testing the limits of their loyalties and placing their lives in jeopardy. RATED: R for language and brief violence TIME: 1 hour, 36 minutes who’s been in your apartment, leaving a book slightly askew on your shelf. You don’t know who that cab driver or dinner-party companion truly is. You don’t even know which side your closest colleagues are on. At least, such is life for Martin Rose (Bana) and Claudia SimmonsHowe (Hall), two lawyers who become ensnared in the legal case surrounding a horrific terror attack, the bombing of a bustling London food market. As the film begins, we’re staring, fittingly, at footage from security cameras – eventually 15 of them. Each captures a snippet of life on a busy November morning. In one

frame, a truck shows up where it’s not supposed to. In an instant, 120 people are dead. Rowing peacefully on the Thames, Martin gets a call. The lawyer defending the lone surviving terror suspect has committed suicide. Work pressure and all that. Martin’s been tapped to replace him. As for Claudia, she’s the Special Advocate, an additional defense lawyer designated by British law to examine secret evidence to be presented in “closed session,” away from the public and the press. Even Martin cannot see this evidence. And he’s not allowed to communicate with Claudia. This is easy at first, since the two happen to be estranged lovers. They’re ambitious enough not to reveal their past romantic entanglement and thus get removed from the case. But if they’re found out, it could end their careers. And nothing goes according to plan, of course. As the two are drawn together by circumstance as well as their obvious mutual attraction – this is a movie, remember, and lawyers are extremely attractive in movies, even in those odd British wigs – they find themselves having

to meet secretly, blatantly defying their superiors. A smart script by Steven Knight keeps the action humming along smoothly and concisely – if sometimes, it must be said, a bit illogically. And the two main actors are a pleasure to watch. Bana seethes with frustration and encroaching fear, and looks wonderful doing it. As for Hall, this terrific actress brings the film much of its humanity, striking that difficult balance of competence and determination tempered by a growing recognition of her frailty. A top-notch supporting cast features the always excellent Ciaran Hinds as Martin’s close colleague, Denis Moschitto as the frightened defendant, Julia Stiles as an American journalist who’s perhaps digging too deep, and, finally, the wonderful Jim Broadbent as the Attorney General – Martin’s boss. You’ve seen Broadbent as Denis Thatcher and as Bridget Jones’ dad; now watch him play an oily official whose cordial smile seems pasted on his face. Never has an invitation to breakfast from the boss sounded quite so unappealing.

“One Direction: This Is Us” stars (from left) Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Harry Syles. Photo provided

‘One Direction’: A one-note doc with super sighs By STEPHANIE MERRY The Washington Post Morgan Spurlock is one tricky guy. The documentarian best known for the eye-opening, award-winning “Super Size Me” now makes a persuasive case not for the dangers of fast food but for the dizzying virtues of a British boy band. And “One Direction: This Is Us” comes this close to convincing someone who routinely avoids the song “What Makes You Beautiful” at all costs that this quintet of skinnyjeaned heartthrobs has the coolest, cutest, nicest and most talented musicians in all the land. But I’m on to you, Spurlock. There are holes in your story about five lads who don’t appear to ever drink, smoke, fight, curse or partake in romantic dalliances of any kind. At least, not on screen. Of course, the movie is tailored specifically for One Direction’s uncontrollably ecstatic fan base of more than 14 million Twitter followers. That group consists mainly of tween girls, so a PG rating is a must, but Spurlock paints the band

“One Direction: This Is Us”

HH

STARRING: Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson PLOT: A look at Niall, Zayn, Liam, Louis, and Harry’s meteoric rise to fame, from their humble hometown beginnings and competing on the X-Factor, to conquering the world and performing at London’s famed O2 Arena. RATED: PG for mild language TIME: 1 hour, 32 minutes members – Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson – as superhuman, even as the guys humbly insist they’re just average blokes. The meteoric rise of One Direction is a compelling tale of chance. “X Factor” producer-turned-puppetmaster Simon Cowell recounts how, in 2010, he threw together five talented individual contestants on a whim. The newly formed group didn’t win the British incarnation of the show that season, but they garnered a massive fan base that propelled them to unfathomable stardom. They sold

out their 2013 arena tour in minutes, according to the documentary. From there, the movie blends concert footage with backstage antics and the tomfoolery that accompanies bus rides and hotel stays. There are a few inspired additional interviews, including a neuroscientist who describes why One Direction fans lose control of their decibel level and tear ducts upon seeing the young men. The guys, who ranged in age from 19 to 21 during the filming, are portrayed as merry pranksters. They pull each other’s pants down on stage and dress in disguises to surprise fans; they make wheelies with golf carts and push each other around in trash bins. To add a bit of emotion, the film hears from the boys’ mothers (the mere sight of these women elicited emotional sighs during an early screening) and follows the five as they take a break from touring to return home. But for the most part, the movie embraces harmless fun, which can be enjoyable for the audience members, whether they’re 1D fans or not. Most of the singers don’t mind their boy-band designation, but they

insist they aren’t the typical commodity. For one thing, they can’t dance, although they faux-try with hilarious results. They also have a little edge, Malik says. They may sport visible tattoos, but watching the boys croon the chart-topping ballad “Little Things” makes that claim one of the more dubious. Some of the guys have made gossip rag headlines for their wild ways, including drunken behavior, but there’s no hint of that here. And the supposedly “all-access” movie conspicuously avoids any mention of love lives, including that of Malik, who announced last week he is engaged to singer Perrie Edwards. Maybe showing those details carries the risk of alienating One Direction’s fans. When the guys sing “I’m in love with you,” the “you” is meant to be each starry-eyed listener. But the absence of certain truths makes the movie feel more like marketing material for superheroes than a comprehensive documentary about human dimension. If One Direction fans end up having inordinately high standards when it comes to love, Spurlock is at least partly to blame.

ILLINOIS RAILWAY MUSEUM’S 60TH ANNIVERSARY

Illinois Railway Museum

celebrates 60 years By JAMI KUNZER jkunzer@shawmedia.com

T

rains might end up at the Illinois Railway Museum because they’re no longer in use. But they rarely sit for long. “The real satisfaction comes in seeing the public ride them,” said Nick Kallas, the museum’s executive director, who’s volunteered there since 1958 when he’d help out as a “high school punk.” Technology offers all sorts of ways to learn about the history of trains and the tracks they used to travel on years ago, he said. “The real thing is here. You can duplicate the sound, but you can’t duplicate the feeling, with the windows open and the rumble of the seat,” Kallas said. And that’s why the museum, nestled amid farmfields in Union and celebrating its 60th anniversary this weekend, is so important, he said. That’s also why Kallas, a retired teacher, continues to volunteer his time, along with 75 to 125 others who volunteer on a regular basis. They work without pay to not only preserve the trains, but restore them so the trains themselves can demonstrate

the vital role railroads have played through the years. “They all have stories to tell,” Kallas said, pointing out a 105-year-old street car heavily used during the museum’s recent Day Out with Thomas event. “It’s preserved so that future generations can actually learn from it,” he said. “That’s the beauty.” As part of the 60th anniversary celebration, visitors to the museum Aug. 30-31 and Sept. 1-2 will have the chance to ride on steam locomotives, the Nebraska Zephyr and other historic electric and diesel trains. Just as they can throughout the season, visitors will be able to stroll through the museum’s numerous displays, stop by the diner or shop in the gift store. First created in North Chicago in 1953 when 10 people threw in $10 each to buy a 1931 Indiana Railroad car, the museum moved to its current location in Union in 1964 with only 13 pieces of equipment. The museum now boasts about 450 historic locomotives and rail cars. It’s become the largest museum of its kind in the country. “People don’t believe this was a cornfield,” said Kallas, leading a tour around the museum’s extensive cam-

Info: www.irm.org; 815-923-4000 or 800-BIGRAIL. pus, including barns, trolley car rides, a railroad line and a streetcar loop. “It was a bad cornfield that used to flood,” he said. “Here we are. We’ve made something out of it.” The Union site was one of five that the museum’s originators looked at, and the least favorite. At the time, development hadn’t really reached the McHenry County area. No one thought visitors would make the trek to Union. But they did, and still do. Open mainly April through October, the museum now attracts about 70,000 visitors from throughout the world every season, with anywhere from 100 to 200 coming a day. Its most popular event is the recent Day Out with Thomas, which features a visit from Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends from the popular children’s television series. Other events, such as the “Terror on the Railroad” Halloween attraction and “Happy Holiday Railway” in December, also have been added through the years. Hollywood has called upon the museum numerous times, as well.

• RAILWAY Continued from page 18 The train scenes for 1992’s “A League of Their Own” were filmed there, for instance, and crews from “Transformers 4” are expected to film at the museum in October. “We’re not just an old stuffy place,” Kallas said. Yet, he and the rest of the museum’s volunteers aren’t ready to rest on their laurels. They’d like to create a roughly $2 million visitor’s center and street scene, complete with a large model railroad, to welcome visitors to the campus. Using old buildings, such as a general store, the scene would duplicate a 1950s street, a time when both street cars and buses existed. With only four paid employees, who oversee the museum’s office and grounds, the nonprofit museum relies heavily on volunteers, donations, grants and government funding.

Read all about it ...

Because of this, money is an issue. “We’re just a bootstraps outfit,” Kallas said. “We’re good custodians of the funds we have.” They’ve applied for state grant money for the project and have been turned own, but haven’t given up hope future grants and donations will come in, Kallas said. He said he hopes he’ll be around to see the day when an education center with classrooms allows school groups to visit the museum. Because of its lack of indoor facilities, the museum is mainly closed in the spring and fall when field trips typically take place, Kallas said. Long-range goals are to expand the museum’s tracks, which now end at the west side of Huntley, and build a depot at Coyne Station Road in Huntley. “There are grand plans here,” he said, looking around the campus, “but the whole place was a grand plan.”

ROB CARROLL WITH MUSIC’S NEW RELEASES

FEATURED RELEASE Juicy J

“Stay Trippy” H1/2

While Juicy J’s status with Memphis rappers Three 6 Mafia seems up in the air at this point, his stock might be rising as a solo artist. The 38-year-old is one of the go-to guest rappers of the moment for other artists to feature on their albums, helping him raise his popularity over when he was more involved with Three 6 Mafia. Predictably, “Stay Trippy,” Juicy J’s third solo effort, is chock-full of guest appearances from artists such as Justin Timberlake, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz and Chris Brown. But less expected is just how uninspired this album feels. Juicy J continues his trend of using a more laidback style when rapping outside of Three 6 Mafia. He applies a slow cadence to his raps that creates some favorable ear candy when taking this album in as single tracks. Juicy J knows how to create great singles by combining his style with repetitive chants during the chorus. “Bandz A Make Her Dance” definitely falls into that category.

But when listening to “Stay Trippy” as a whole, Juicy J’s delivery comes off as a little too sleepy. The seemingly lackadaisical effort is carried over into the song writing, too. “Stay Trippy” is a one drug reference after another with an occasional shoutout to Bugatti, in case you were wondering how Juicy J rolls between drug binges. “All I Blow Is Loud” alone covers pills, gin, weed, codeine and Molly. So there’s a song that references drugs. Big deal, right? Well, maybe it wouldn’t be as bad if we hadn’t already been given several tracks, including “Smokin’ Rollin,’ ” that cover the same territory. Unfortunately, the guest appearances on “Stay Trippy” are an afterthought. Well, all except for Timberlake. He is featured on “The Woods,” which sounds too much like an old Justin Timberlake song – yet another instance where this album misses the mark.
