AWAY THEY GO! Agreement reached on Slammers, contingent on city approval By Jonathan Samples Staff Reporter

An agreement has been reached between Slammers owner Al Oremus and a potential investment group on the sale of the team, but that agreement is contingent on city approval. Joliet City Manager Tom Thanas said that the sale of the team is a two-step process. First, the Slammer’s current ownership must find a prospective buyer. Second, because the city owns Silver Cross Field, that prospective buyer must be approved by city officials. “Those two components must exist in order for a successful transaction to occur,”Thanas said. “Al has reached an agreement with a particular investment group, but it’s contingent upon the city and the investment group reaching an agreement on a lease.” Slammers ownership declined to comment on this story, but Thanas said the city will make a decision on the potential buyer within 30 days.

SLAMMERS Continued from page 1 In addition to financial statements, Thanas said the city will look at the background of the investors before making a decision. “What we’re looking at number one is a group that has the financial ability to step in and operate a minor league baseball team and manage Silver Cross Field,” Thanas said. “That really is the primary ingredient to a successful operation.” Councilwoman Jan Quillman said any decision on the Slammers’ future would first have to go in front of the baseball committee, where any potential buyer would be assessed and presented to the City Council. Oremus purchased the ball club in 2010, and despite winning the 2011 Frontier League championship, low attendance has led to the decision to sell the team.Independent league baseball first came to Joliet in 2002 with the Joliet JackHammers. For the first six years of their operation, the team experienced significant financial success, averaging over 4,000 people per game. “It was fabulous,” Quillman

Any potential buyer of the Joliet Slammers must reach a lease agreement with the city for Silver Cross Field

said.“The park was packed every night, and opening day you could barely get a ticket. Baseball here in Joliet was exciting, and it went on and on.” Quillman, who has been on the City Council since 2005, said the success was steady until the economy took a downturn around 2009. Ultimately financial problems forced the sale of the

team in 2010 and it was rebranded as the Joliet Slammers. However, ownership experienced a similar situation, as attendance declined to half of the high-water mark reached under the JackHammers years. For that reason, the city is looking for someone who can sustain a year or two of negative profits. “Everyone I’ve spoken with,

I’ve told that they won’t come in year one and make money,” Thanas said. “They will have to subsidize that operation. That’s why we’re looking very closely at the financials of the business prospects, to make sure that we have someone who can handle the first couple years.” jsamples@buglenewspapers.com

By Jonathan Samples Staff Reporter Live music always has held a special place in the hearts of Mike and Kathy Trizna. As owners of Chicago Street Pub, they have turned that passion into a staple offering at their downtown Joliet location. Now, the Triznas are moving beyond the four walls of their Chicago Street venue to the open air of Silver Cross Field, with hopes of sharing their love of live rock’n’roll with the

entire Joliet community. The Hopstring Fest, an all-day craft beer and roots rock music festival, will bring together live music enthusiasts and a variety of local and nationally known bands. Miles Nielsen & The Rusted Hearts, The Steepwater Band and the Righteous Hillbillies are just a few of the performers who will take the stage Sept. 29. “We’re doing everything we can to make sure everyone has a good time,” Trizna said. “The event is family friendly, these are all-ages shows, and there will be beanbags and a lot of other great things going on.” In addition to a lineup of great roots rock, a number of local restaurants will be on-hand alongside the Chicago Street Pub, including, Bothwell Farms, Gji’s Sweet Shoppe, Jody’s Hot Dogs and McBrody’s. Craft beers from Goose Island, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Two

Brothers Brewing Company and Summit Brewing also will be available. Hopstring Fest has been a longtime in the making, but it wasn’t until last spring that that idea finally came to fruition. After several unsuccessful attempts to find a venue, Trizna finally approached Joliet Slammers President Bill Waliewski in March. And with that meeting, Trizna found the venue he needed for Hopstring to take off. “I explained my idea to him and he was on board within seconds,” Trizna said. “Bill said he would love to do it and thought it was a great idea.” With only six months separating that initial conversation and the festival date,Trizna had a lot of work to do. Luckily, he and his wife had many of the pieces already in place. “We started out with a

very small group of acoustic musicians at Chicago Street [Pub],” Trizna said. “As they got little bit bigger and started to play out, they passed along my name and the name of Chicago Street. It just got bigger and bigger, to the point where we now have national acts who are traveling through Chicago calling and asking for dates.” That network of musicians has helped fill-in the lineup for Hopstring Fest. Hopstring Fest takes place from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sept. 29 at Silver Cross Field, 1 Mayor Art Schultz Drive, Joliet. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased in advance online at www.hopstringfest.com or at the Slammers’ Box Office. Fans can call the Box Office during regular business hours at 815-722-2287. If tickets are purchased the day of the festival, the price is $25 a ticket.

Three additional severe weather sirens to be installed in Joliet The Joliet Emergency Management Agency has announced that three additional severe weather sirens will be installed in Joliet this year, according to EMA Director Greg Sebben. The locations will include the Elks Club on the Frontage Road near Jefferson Street, the Cedar Creek Park at Monte Carlo and Bridge Street, and the City of Joliet pumping station on Millsdale Road near CenterPoint Intermodal. The Joliet Emergency Management Agency is continually looking

to add sirens to areas that lack complete coverage. “Following the recent additions to the city such as Challenge Park, the Autobahn, Chicagoland Speedway, Route 66 Dragstrip, CenterPoint Intermodal, and residential subdivisions to the southern borders, the sirens will be a needed warning device for those residing and working in that area,” Sebben said. The sirens are activated by the EMA Department, or by police and fire officials if there is a threat of tornados or severe winds producing damage where

residents will need to take cover. Sebben reminds residents that the sirens are meant to warn those outside to take cover, and are not necessarily to be heard by those that are already indoors. Sebben also states that homeowners need to purchase a severe weather radio for their home that activates to severe weather alerts in the surrounding area - especially during the night when citizens are most vulnerable. Sirens are activated monthly on the first Tuesday at 10:00 AM to ensure proper operation.

St. Charles Mercy Hospital; Medical Director of Psychiatric Programs at St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center. A licensed psychiatrist, Dr. Franzblau completed his medical degree at Michigan State University and completed psychiatric residency at University of Michigan Medical. He is a member of the American Medical Association

and the American Psychiatric Association and is a diplomat of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. Dr. Franzblau stated that St. Joes “manifests the values of Catholicism and the mission of its extraordinary health care ministry.” The new CMO has been impressed by the sophistication of services and high-quality care provided at St. Joes, likening it to that performed at academic medical centers, but offered here in a community setting. Among his responsibilities is strategic oversight for Library Services, Clinical Research, Quality Performance Improvement, Risk/Corporate Compliance, Case Management, Physician Recruitment and Medical Directorships. “The future will demand that those in healthcare dedicate themselves to accountability, coordination and innovation. Collaboration between a hospital’s administration and medical staff is the engine for change,” Franzblau said.

Blue Deuce takes Round 1 By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

Before he was ever hired as a NASCAR driver, Brad Keselowski told team owner Roger Penske that he would drive for him and bring him a championship. Keselowski took the first step toward that Sunday when he drove his No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge to Victory Lane at Chicagoland Speedway Sunday after holding off five-time Cup champion Jimmie Johnson late in the first race of the Chase for the Sprint Cup. Kasey Kahne finished third. “I think you’ve got to go back to the year before we hired him,” Penske said. “At one point he came by to see us, and he said that he’d like to come and race for our team.   But he couldn’t do it, he had a commitment. But he said, when I do come, I want to help build a team to win the championship, and I think he’s never forgotten that.  That was the year before he started with us.   He’s been focused. Do I feel we got what we expected?  Obviously the quality of his driving, and he went through a lot of rigmarole, some maybe he was due, some he wasn’t, but I think he’s managed to develop a lot of rapport with the drivers.   “I think they trust him wheel to wheel.  He’s not a reckless guy at all, and on and off the track I think he’s got high integrity, and that’s something we want, and certainly what he’s been able to do, and I think I said this to he and Paul Wolfe, I said, if you guys help us attract the best people, that’s the benefit that Hendrick has had when you look at top to bottom of his organization, it’s the quality of the people that make the difference.   So I would say he’s delivered everything I expected.  But to win a race, the

first race of the Chase and beat the 48 I guess is something that you’re pretty happy when you go home.” For the first time in his career, Keselowski finds himself sitting atop the NASCAR Sprint Cup points list, and what a better time to be there than after the first race in the Chase for the Sprint Cup. “Well, there’s no better place to start than in the lead, right?” Kesleowski said.“It was certainly a great race.   My opinion is obviously a little skewed on that.  A good race, how about that?  With the 48 (Johnson) car, and really everybody, the 5 (Kahne) car was strong, and a couple others were really strong, the Gibbs cars were very strong, and our team just did a phenomenal job of executing, made some key adjustments during the race that got my car running really, really strong.  Certainly there was a lot of other really good cars in the field, as well.” The 28-year old Keselowski knows that it is only the first race of the 10-race playoff, but he is happy to get the first win. “It feels like Round 1 of a heavyweight title bout, just it’s a 10-round bout,” he said. “Week 1 is done and we won the round but we didn’t by any means knock them out, we’ve got a lot of racing left to go.  We’re feeling good about today but know that we have a lot of work to do.” Last year, Tony Stewart took the checkered flag in the Geico 400 and went on to win four more Chase races and win the Sprint Cup. It is Keselowski’s goal to become a champion in the sport and he said it made more special Sunday to beat out Johnson, who has had success in the sport. He See NASCAR, page 13

Joliet Catholic midfielder Jared Olson fights off a Notre Dame player for a 50-50 ball.

German exchange student makes debut By Mike Sandrolini Sports Reporter

The Hilltoppers dropped a tough 1-0 game in overtime to ESCC foe Notre Dame on Sept. 12, and third-year head coach Tom Cranmer admits his team’s inability to put the ball in the net has been a concern. “We’d like a few more shots,” he said. “We’ve been struggling to score all year and it just came back to bite us in the end. “This is the best game we’ve played in the midfield. We totally controlled the game, and dictated the whole pace. We just didn’t have enough shots. We were either looking to pass when we should have been shooting, or shooting when we should have been passing.”

But help for JCA’s offense appears to have arrived. Call it foreign aid, if you will, courtesy of German exchange student Max Emendoerfer. Emendoerfer, who grew up north of Berlin, suited up for his first American soccer game vs. Notre Dame, and it didn’t take long for him to make his presence known. Five minutes into the game, Emendoerfer banged a free kick off the crossbar. Later in the first half, he put a shot on net that forced Notre Dame goalkeeper Robert Hill to make a point-blank save. During the second half, Emendoerfer set up teammate Tommy Paige in front of the net. See JCA, page 18

Jeff Gordon had a good day before losing a throttle late in the race.

NASCAR Continued from page 13 knows, however, he has to keep it up. “We all know how good his team is,” Keselowski said. “We all know how good he is.  And look at the résumé over the last six years.  Hey, look at the résumé

over the last 10 years.   It’s impeccable. To be racing him, whether it was for the lead or for 10th is an accomplishment.” Johnson is now second in Chase points, three back of Keselowski, while Stewart (-8), Hamlin (-15), Kahne (-15) and Bowyer (-15) round out the top six.

Porters earn win over Steelmen By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

Mark Gregory/Bugle Staff

Lockport quarterback Ryan Dalton tries to dive past a Joliet Central defender in the Porters’ win Saturday.

When two winless teams like Lockport and Joliet Central squared off, it was assumed it would be a defensive game. Little did the Porters know how much. Lockport relied on a pair of defensive scores to help them defeat the Steelmen 22-14 Saturday in Joliet. “I knew they were going to (give us a good game),” said Lockport coach Don McKillip. “A lot of our guys know their guys and there was some talk all week. I saw them on film and they have some skill position kids that can make some plays and that is what they did. “We shot ourselves in the foot offensively with some penalties and putting the ball on the ground.” The first defensive score came from 6-foot, 2-inch, 270-pound senior defensive tackle Kegan Anspach who returned a fumble 23 yards for the game’s first score. “I am probably the slowest one out there,”Anspach said.“My eyes glittered up like it was Christmas Day and I was a little kid again. We are always taught to fall on the ball, but it jumped in my lap, so I said, screw it. When I got there, I didn’t even know how to celebrate. I was speechless.” See PORTERS, page 17

West, Central meet Saturday Both Joliet Central and West have had to battle SWSC leader Bolingbrook the past two weeks, each with the same fate. Coming off a 44-12 loss to the Raiders Saturday, West is ready to face the still winless Steelmen Saturday at 1 p.m. at West. Bolingbrook jumped out to a fast start against theTigers,scoring 44 points before halftime. A 60-yard touchdown pass from Ashton McCullough to Kameron Hargrove and a threeyard scoring run by McCullough late broke the Raider shutout.

JOLIET CATHOLIC Ty Isaac got back in the starting lineup Friday night, but fumbled three times in a 34-33 overtime win over Nazareth. Tyler Reitz scored the gamewinning 10-yard touchdown run in overtime. The Roadrunners also scored on their first overtime possession, but failed on the two-point conversion attempt. Isaac had 22 carries for 107 yards and a pair of TDs in the game, while Reitz carried eight times for 58 yards and posted a 27-yard TD catch. Quarterback Craig Slowik was 10-of-15 for 168 yards, while Mike Ivlow had an eight-yard TD run.

D-I LOCALS Joliet Catholic Academy graduate Nick Clancy tallied a team-best 24 tackles Saturday for Boston College in the Eagles 2213 loss at Northwestern. The number was the second most tackles in a game all-time for an Eagle, as three players have tallied 25 tackles in a game. Through the first three games

PORTERS Continued from page 16 Anspach, who scored the team’s only points two weeks ago with a safety, is now the leading scorer on the Lockport team. “I am the leading scorer on the team, it is probably the first time you can ever say a defensive lineman was the leading scorer,” he said.“But I’ll take it.” Anspach has no thoughts of moving to the offensive side of the ball, unless that is, he joked, in

of the season, Clancy has 43 tackles. • Josh Ferguson did not play in Illinois’ 44-0 win over Charleston Southern with a possible concussion.

Who to watch: Ashton McCullough QB (West) Malik Neal LB (Central)

Trailing for most of the second half, the 17th-ranked University of St. Francis football team tied the game in the final two minutes of regulation then outdueled host Olivet Nazarene University in double overtime en route to a 19-16 win in Mid-States Football Association Midwest Division play Saturday night. Andrew Muzljakovich’s 44-yard field goal, his third of the game, gave the Tigers (0-4 overall, 0-2 MSFA Midwest) a 9-3 lead with 4:02 remaining in the fourth quarter. With no timeouts remaining, USF started its final possession of regulation on its own 25yard line. Facing a 4th-and-3, the Saints kept the drive alive with an 8-yard completion from junior quarterback E.J. White (St. Cloud, Fla./ St. Cloud) to senior wideout Desmond Page (Columbus, Ohio/ Briggs). White later hooked up with junior tight end Dustin Greenwell (Fort Myers, Fla./ Riverdale) on a 31-yard completion to move the ball to the Olivet Nazarene 4-yard line. Two plays later White found Greenwell in the end zone from 4 yards out for what appeared to be the go-ahead touchdown, but the

extra-point attempt missed, leaving the game tied at 9-9. St. Francis (2-2, 1-0) took possession first in the overtime, starting at its own 25-yard line. Three plays into the drive, White connected with junior wide receiver Elliot Allen (Channahon, Ill./ Minooka) for a 17-yard touchdown. Olivet Nazarene answered with a 7-yard TD run by Michael Ho-Lewis on its first possession. The Tigers started on offense in the second overtime and managed only nine yards on three plays. Muzljakovich then attempted a 28-yard field goal, but the kick sailed wide right, giving USF the ball with a chance to win. A White-to-Page 8-yard completion coupled with a facemask penalty on the play moved the ball to the ONU 9-yard line.A pair of runs by sophomore John Magee (Plainfield, Ill./ Plainfield South) got the Saints to the 1.On fourth down,sophomore kicker Sean Murray (Phoenix, Ariz./ Shadow Mountain), who missed the earlier PAT attempt, converted an 18-yard field goal to give the Saints the 19-16 win. Olivet Nazarene outgained the Saints 392-325 with 280 of those yards coming on the ground. HoLewis and David Payne rushed for

short-yardage situations. “They can put in some goal line packages like the Fridge,” he laughed. “My dad already compares me him for how much I eat all the time.” Senior defensive back Edgar Ortiz also scored on a 13-yard fumble return in the second quarter. Despite the two defensive scores, Central led 14-12 at the break. The Steelmen scored twice in the second quarter on a pair of Carlos Curry touchdown passes. He found Romello Clark from

20-yards out on a fourth-and-13 and hit Derrell Clark on a twoyard strike. His two-point conversion pass to Luis Zepeda with 24 seconds left in the half put Joliet up. Lockport’s Richie Guess rushed for 63 of his game-high 89 yards in the second half before leaving the game with an injury. Guess tallied the lone offensive TD for the Porters, a 6-yard run, while Aaron Ambrose hit a 26yard field goal. The Steelmen opened the game short-handed, as linebacker Malik Neal and running back Sylvester

JCA Continued from page 14 But Hill made another pointblank save on Paige’s header. “He’s really going to help take charge in the center of the field,” Cranmer said. “He settles everybody down. I think we’re going to be able to connect from the defense to the midfielders to the forwards now with him a little bit more because he’s a nice big target.” Emendoerfer has been practicing with JCA since its first week of games, but had to wait until the IHSA cleared his paperwork and gave him the OK to play. “The first time he came to practice he was in his European club uniform,” Cranmer said. “He was ready to go right from the beginning and he was yelling at all the guys right at the first practice, telling them what to do. He’s like having another coach out there. He’s a great edition.” Emendoerfer’s new teammates have taken a liking to him. They could be heard cheering him on in German on the bench during the Notre Dame game.

Indians go back to roots, beat Wildcats By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

In a game that was almost a must win for Minooka after starting the season 0-3, the Indians dug deep into the playbook. Well, deep enough to get back to what Minooka has always done – run the football and play good defense. “The first three weeks was the head coach getting in the way,” said first-year Minooka coach Paul Forsyth. “We tried to do some things that traditionally we don’t do. So basically what you saw is us getting back to what we do here. We got out of the I (formation) and went back to the three-man backfield.” That running game gave Central the 45-14 win. Two of those backs, Nate Gunn (11 carries, 122 yards, 2 TDs) and Max Brozovich (7, 129, TD) went over the 100-yard mark, while the third starter, Cory Bee (12, 81) scored twice. It was the first game back in the backfield for Brozovich, who was converted to a wide receiver. “I love running back,”he said.“My sophomore year they moved me to wide receiver and I did pretty good there, but I loved getting back and running the ball. It is back to old school Minooka football. Back to doing what we do.” The Indians got off the bat right away when they turned the first of three interceptions by Corbet Oughton into Bee’s first TD. It was the first lead for Minooka all season. A Central fumble on the next possession led to a Jacob Stytz 37yard field goal and a 10-0 Indian lead. A Brozovich TD on a fake punt

closed the first quarter for the Indians with a 17-0 lead. The second quarter opened with a touchdown pass from junior quarterback Shane Briscoe, who was starting for the injured Joe Carnagio, to Luke Stovall from 44-yards out. The Indians took a 31-0 lead at halftime. After Oughton took his second interception back 36 yards for a score and a 38-0 lead, it looked as if the Indians may get a running clock. However, a 75-yard punt return for a score by Central’s Dane Moscatelli got Central on the board. The Wildcats trimmed the led to 38-14 when Brian Blair found Joe Tatum from nine-yards out for a score. Central would threaten again, but Oughton’s third pick, one that could have been returned for a score if he didn’t stumble and fall, squashed the drive. Brozovich ended all scoring with a 58-yard TD run midway through the final stanza. “We were flat,” Plainfield Central coach John Jackson said of the start of the game. “Minooka was ready for us.They respected us and they came out hard and took it to us in the first half. We can’t spot them 17 points and we can’t turn over the bloody ball.” Jackson was happy with how the Wildcats responded after halftime. “It took us until the second half to wake up and start playing how we can, but then the mistakes happened again,” he said.“We had them scared there for a little bit in the third quarter. We will be ready to play this week. That is on me and I guarantee we will be ready.” mark@buglenewspapers.com

Alphabet soup of financial designations By Jill Schlesinger Tribune Media Services

What’s better: a CFP or a CPA-PFS? What’s the difference between a fee-based financial adviser and a fee-only one? Being a consumer of financial services these days can be maddening. One reader asked, “Can you give me a rundown about what these designations mean so I can select the right type of adviser to help me with my retirement planning?” Absolutely. Let’s start with the basics: There is a difference between a license and a designation.Conducting certain sales activities in the securities and insurance industries can require both state and federal licensing. Additionally, those who are Registered Investment Advisers (RIAs) are licensed to provide advice and must put their clients’ interests first (“the fiduciary standard”). Those licenses require passing standardized tests and some continuing education. However, many professionals engaged in providing financial

advice also rely on outside designations, which are often more rigorous than the licensing exams, in order to differentiate themselves from those who sell product versus those who sell advice. The financial professional designations include: CFP(r) certification: The Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards (CFP Board) requires candidates to meet what it calls “the four Es”: Education (through one of several approved methods, must demonstrate the ability to create, deliver and monitor a comprehensive financial plan, covering investment, insurance, estate, retirement, education and ethics), Examination (a 10-hour exam given over a day and a half; most recent exam pass rate was 59.1 percent), Experience (three years of full-time, relevant personal financial planning experience required) and Ethics (disclosure of any criminal, civil, governmental, or self-regulatory agency proceeding or inquiry). CFPs

must adhere to the fiduciary standard. CPA Personal Financial Specialist (PFS): The American Institute of CPAs(r) offers a separate financial planning designation. In addition to already being a licensed CPA, a CPA/PFS candidate must earn a minimum of 80 hours of personal financial planning education and have two years of full-time business or teaching experience (or 3,000 hours equivalent) in personal financial planning, all within the five year period preceding the date of the PFS application. They must also pass an approved Personal Financial Planner exam. Chartered Life Underwriter(r) (CLU(r))/Chartered Financial Consultant(r) (ChFC(r)): Available for insurance agents who want to demonstrate a deeper knowledge base. The CLU is more insurance-focused, while the ChFC is broader. Both require designees to take eight college-level courses on all aspects of financial planning from The American College in Bryn Mawr, Penn., and then complete continuing education. Neither requires a comprehensive exam.

Membership in the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA): Becoming a member of NAPFA maintains a high bar for entry: Professionals must be RIAs and must also have either the CFP or CPA-PFS designation. Additionally, NAPFA advisers are fee-only, which means that they do not accept commissions or any additional fees from outside sources for the recommendations they make. Fee-only advisers can charge based on an hourly or flat rate, or based on a percentage of your portfolio value, often called “Assets Under Management” (AUM). Either method is fine with NAPFA; however, if the adviser collects a commission from an insurance company or a fee from a mutual fund company as part of the financial plan, then that adviser is precluded from membership. In addition to being feeonly, NAPFA advisers must be fiduciaries and must provide information on their background, experience, education and credentials, and are required to submit a financial plan to a peer review.

After acceptance into NAPFA, members must fulfill continuing education requirements. The requirements make NAPFA members among the tiniest percentage of registered investment advisers, with only 2,500 total current members. I asked John Ritter, NAPFA board member and public policy chair about setting the bar too high, making it too exclusive a club. He responded that NAPFA advisers want “to be the ones carrying the torch, in front of the industry.” Certainly, you can get good advice from someone without these designations,but knowing what they mean can help you ask the right questions about the services and fee structures they provide, so you can make an educated choice.

THE BUGLE/SENTINEL SEPTEMBER 19, 2012

Do you dare tell the truth at work? Q. I’ve noticed a lot of people in my workplace seem to play it fast and loose with the truth. They often cover up their mistakes and play up their strengths. One of my coworkers says this is marketing, I think it is lying. Who is right? A. Both of you are right. The public relations idea of “spin” on truth has become accepted and customary. You may strongly disagree and be angered by how unpopular truth has become, but your outrage does not change the workplace. Many people I’ve coached have spent years of their career fighting windmills like a passionate version of office Don Quixote. These same people come to me burned out, discouraged and bitter. In a long career, we will meet with many realities we do not approve of or like. Our choice is whether to be effective

within the constraints of these realities or to knock ourselves out expecting r e a l i t y will finally conform to our expectations. G e n d e r differences often play a role in how comfortable a person is with using “spin” at work. Men more often than women consider amplifying successes as “marketing.” Women tend to see these same conversations as outright lying. Do note that men generally still earn a dollar for every 70 cents women make at the same job. “Spin” has become so commonplace there is a math people do when they hear your professional biography. The math goes like this: Listen to what people say they’ve

done, cut it in half, and you’re pretty close to the truth. What this means is that if you always tell an unvarnished story about your achievements, people cut this in half, and you look fairly unimpressive. Now, before you send me outraged emails about truth, justice and the American way, let me make it clear I am not recommending that you either spin your history with embellishments or provide just the facts. Clearly, your own peace of mind needs to come first. Realize that whatever you choose there are simply tradeoffs between spin, money and opportunity. If you do chose to vent by sending me an outraged email, be aware I am flattered by my readers’ perception of my influence over the business world. However, I have no power to change the popularity of spin. Instead, my column is

about working with business as it is, not as we wish it should be. There is a huge difference between confidently stating what you believe you can do and lying about having attended Harvard. Outright lying on your resume, in an interview or on the job will catch up with you. If, however, you are asked in an interview whether you can do a project, you are not lying to say, “Absolutely!” You can then worry about your inadequacy after you get the job. Most professionals who love their jobs have repeatedly taken on more than they thought they could do and surprised themselves by finding they could do it! There is also a difference between choosing not to disclose one mistake and not disclosing a pattern of problems. If you make one mistake, learn from it and don’t repeat it. If

you repeatedly make the same mistakes, don’t take a job which requires these skills. You have every right to put your best foot forward when it comes to being hired and promoted. Just make certain that foot doesn’t “spin” right into your mouth if you can’t deliver what you promised.

Getting your affairs in order in the face of illness Dear Dave, One of my relatives just discovered she has cancer. She’s a single mom with two young kids, and I’m not sure if she’s prepared to face something like this. What are the best steps she can take financially at this point? Shannon Dear Shannon, I’m really sorry to hear about this. I know cancer is a scary thing to hear, but please

remember to pray and be there for her all you can. God willing, things can still turn out okay. W h e n people ask if a person has their affairs in order, they’re usually asking a couple of different questions. Are you right with God? Do you have life insurance and a

will? Another important thing is to have all the paperwork of your life organized and in a safe place, so someone you trust can handle the details if things don’t turn out well. Everyone should have a good term life insurance policy in place. My advice is to have a policy worth 10 times your annual income. When it comes to a will, make sure it’s state specific. Probate and estate regulations are not federal laws, they’re

state laws. So any will should be drawn up according to guidelines for the state in which you live. Make sure, too, that she has made arrangements for any minor children. It might be a good idea to sit down and talk with two or three trusted family members or close friends and decide who will take them if the worst should happen. Whoever this is should be incredibly responsible and caring, and willing to love and

raise these kids as if they were their very own. —Dave * Dave Ramsey is America’s trusted voice on money and business.

something to contribute. There is still usefulness and value even in shy and reticent people, so don’t discard their ideas or fail to solicit their assistance in the week ahead. You may have misjudged someone.

Hit the switch and get your name in lights. In the week to come, you might be tempted to curry favor and grab attention by participating wholeheartedly within groups of people gathered for business purposes.

Don’t mix business and pleasure in the week ahead. Your ambitions could take precedence. but distract you from what is really important. Give your loved ones and family members extra attention.

A little change never hurt anyone. There’s nothing wrong with your circle of friends, but occasionally you can gain a whole new perspective through new people. Break with routines during the week ahead.

Accentuate the positive. You might benefit by sharing inspirational affirmations and your wisdom with others. Business and financial decisions are best left on the back burner during the first half of the week.

There is light at the end of the financial tunnel. Take a look at the checkbook or bills and tally up the columns. Your past planning and good judgment begin to pay off in the week ahead.

Enjoy a spell in the spotlight. A situation might give you a chance to be the center of attention this week. Maintain a steady pace when you have many tasks to perform. Take opposition in stride.

Money hidden under the mattress can grow lumpy. Be wise about spending and budgets. In the upcoming week, you will find reasons to be glad that you were highly organized and paid attention to details.

Overcome objections by opening the doors to frank discussion. Don’t hide the truth or facts in the week ahead. Emphasize mutual benefits rather than pointing out weaknesses when dealing with others.
