FIELD SET FOR JOLIET Hamlin, Hendrick lead Chase hopefuls By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

A

fter two rain delays and tons of drama at Richmond International Raceway, the field is finally set for the Chase for the Sprint Cup, which begins Sunday in Joliet at the Geico 400 at Chicagoland Speedway. Jeff Gordon edged out Kyle Busch for the second and final wild card position, as Hendrick Motorsports teammate Kasey Kahne took the first spot, giving HMS all four cars in the Chase. “We missed,” Busch said.“That’s it.” Busch’s teammate Denny Hamlin, who heads into the Chase as the top seed, said it was unfortunate his Joe Gibbs Racing teammate did not make the top 12. “It sucks to not have Kyle in the Chase,” Hamlin said.“It’s important for JGR to have cars in the Chase. It is Joe and J.D. (Gibbs) livelihood, they don’t really have other businesses outside of this, so they need cars in the Chase to make a living. It is tough, but now it is up to us to go out and try and get them a championship with one of their cars.” With four wins on the season, Hamlin looks to Joliet to kick off a title run.

Kenseth focused despite distractions By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

Since the beginning of the NASCAR season, Matt Kenseth has been in the lime light. The veteran driver won the Daytona 500 to kick off the season and four months later, he announced he would leave RoushFenway Racing after 13 full Cup seasons, where he has won 22 races, two Daytona 500s, and the 2003 NASCAR championship. With his contract expiring after this season, Kenseth’s decision had been made prior to the announcement in June. “Once we got out of Kentucky (and made the announcement), I think it was a relief,” he said earlier this year. “The tough part for me was the month and a half before that, trying to work through all that and figure everything out. I think it is only a distraction if you let it become one. I think it is business as usual. It doesn’t change this season as far as what our goals are and how

hard we work toward the goals of winning races and winning a championship. It doesn’t really change anything in my mind. We have been there a long time and had agreed to race through 2012, so the only thing that changes is what we will be doing in 2013 and beyond.” Kenesth’s plans for 2013 were unveiled last week in a press conference announcing he would take over the No. 20 Home Depot Toyota for Joe Gibbs racing. It is a car most recently driven by Joey Logano for the past four years, but made famous by Tony Stewart. “It is a big day for us and it is exciting for us,” said Joe Gibbs.“In this sport you need someone who can really wheel it and make it go. And now, we are so excited about next year having Kyle (Busch) and Denny (Hamlin) and Matt now. I can honestly tell you everyone is excited about next year.” So is Kenseth. “I am really excited to be See KENSETH, page 19

Romeoville lures big box retailers to area, investing millions

By Laura Katauskas Staff Reporter

Despite talks of a recession, Romeoville can still lay claim to luring big business to town with plans for a big box retailer and international bakery group set to invest millions into the community. “With two projects we have more than a half a million square feet of new construction—not that many people are seeing big box retailers building since the recession,” Mayor John Noak said.“It is very exciting.” Though the group hasn’t constructed a new building in nearly a decade, Sam’s Club is changing that trend.Village officials approved a concept plan to construct a retail warehouse and gas station in the Romeoville Crossings shopping plaza, next to Walmart at Airport and Weber roads. Looking to fast track the project, site work can begin on the proposed 138,000 square-foot building as early as this fall. Developer George Barr of Air-Web, LLC will present the final development plan to

“With two projects we

have more than a half a million square feet of new construction—not that many people are seeing big box retailers building since the recession,” Mayor John Noak the Village Board in October. The building will also be a new format for Sam’s Club. “Sam’s Club will be a great addition to the other retailers along the Weber Road Corridor,” Noak said. “We look forward to the addition of over 200 jobs as well as the tax revenue it will bring to our community.” According to Community Development Director Steve Rockwell,Sam’s Club bought and owned the property at Normantown

and Weber roads across from what used to be Gas City in 2003. However, Sam’s Club was in a period of non-building and sold the property to Air-Web LLC and George Barr, the same developers who are responsible for the construction of Walmart. Within that time, Normantown Road has seen substantial growth with warehousing construction, as well as the building of Rasmussen College. Because of this and the fact that the area of Airport and Weber roads has become a retail center,Sam’s Club opted to build next to Walmart, as is now becoming standards for the company. “Residents are excited about this—I’ve heard how they are tired of traveling to other communities to go to Sam’s Club,” trustee Joe Chavez said. “I am glad to see this come to fruition for our community.” In addition, the village approved tax abatement for Aryzta LLC to bring their global business here. The group plans to construct 360,000-square-foot food manufacturing facility/industrial bakery at 1120 W. Crossroads Parkway in the Boldt Park Development with a capital

investment of $100 million. “Projects like this just don’t happen very often,” Noak said. “We are very excited to have a company of this high caliber expanding into our community.” The project will bring approximately 40 new jobs and will employ a total of 270, with the majority of their workers being retained. Aryzta provides products to limited service restaurants, food service and retail markets and customers include McDonalds, Subway, Costco, Walmart, Starbucks and Kroger. The village board approved a five-year, 50 percent abatement of the village’s portion of the real estate taxes assessed against the building, subject to a number of conditions aimed at protecting the village. According to Village Attorney Rich Vogel, projections provided by the Will County Center for Economic Development, the total amount of the requested abatement over a five year period would be approximately $250,000. katauskas@buglenewspapers.com

Water Agency moving forward By Laura Katauskas Staff Reporter

While the newly formed Northern Will County Water Agency met publicly for the first time, its members were dealing with issues that have been recurring over the past several years. The battle continues between Illinois American Water and five communities, Bolingbrook, Homer Glen,Lemont,Romeoville and Woodridge, who make up the agency. The group of village mayors has been meeting since 2008 as an ad-hoc committee, claiming official status this summer, and are looking to clear a path to potentially take over the Bedford Park water pipeline. The pipeline is currently owned by American Lake Company, a subsidiary of Illinois American Water. For years the neighboring communities have been concerned with rate increases. However, the water company defends those increases as required maintenance costs.

“We’ve had to endure their ridiculous charges on no real basis and for what they claim does not make sense—it’s just another way to get into your pocket,” Mayor Roger Claar In early August, the agency made a “good faith” purchase offer of $34 million to Illinois American Water to buy their American Lake Water subsidiary pipeline. At the meeting, an update was given that IAW had submitted a letter to the agency dated Aug. 31, requesting more information. Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar said it was nothing more than a “stalling tactic.” Illinois American Water Senior Manager Michael Smyth, who spoke later at the meeting, said Illinois American Water was “not for sale” and that it would be impossible to estimate a cost of the pipeline. “That would be something for

a jury to deliberate,” Smyth said. He continued to project that such a move by the agency would not lower tax rates and would only cause undue costs in litigation. If the two parties can’t agree on a price, eminent domain or condemnation could then be an alternative. Bolingbrook Public Works Director Mike Drey also reported that the Illinois Commerce Commission will begin to hear oral arguments on IAW’s proposed rate increase on Tuesday. Drey said the proposed increase could equate to about approximately a 26 percent increase for the majority of its customers and for those customers in newer homes

it could mean a jump of 37 percent. According to an earlier statement from IAW, the company’s ongoing investment in water and wastewater system improvements and the increasing costs of delivering quality, reliable service to customers are the main drivers behind the rate request. The proposed change reflects approximately $180 million in infrastructure investments across the state, including approximately $29.3 million in the Chicago Metro District not reflected in current rates. According to Smyth, the rate filing also proposes to implement a rate consolidation approach that will help stabilize rates over the long term. The agency continues to contend that the goal of the agency is to stabilize and control water rate increases by exploring the feasibility of acquiring the Lake Michigan water transmission line in question, which runs from Bedford Park to the southwest suburbs. Some

or all of each community receive water from the pipeline. At the conclusion of the meeting, Claar summarized that the villages have been dealing with these issues for some time and that though IAW tends to publicize “lies, innuendo and falsehoods, week after week,” the majority of residents inform him that they support the agency. “We’ve had to endure their ridiculous charges on no real basis and for what they claim does not make sense—it’s just another way to get into your pocket,” Claar said. “We’re trying to do something better for our residents.” Homer Glen Mayor Jim Daley also announced that the village of Homer Glen is currently selling $17 million and up to $25 million in bonds, which would be used to purchase the pipeline. The next meeting of the agency will be held Oct. 8 at the Bolingbrook Village Hall, 375 W. Briarcliff Road. katauskas@buglenewspapers.com

Drew Peterson found guilty By Laura Katauskas Staff Reporter

Former Bolingbrook Police Officer Drew Peterson was found guilty last week, and he is now waiting to be sentenced and potentially appeal the verdict. In one of the most bizarre and sensational cases in Will County’s history, Peterson was on trial for killing his third wife Kathleen Savio, who was found dead in a dry bathtub in 2004. Though based on circumstantial evidence and hearsay testimony, prosecutors brought more than 30 witnesses to testify against Peterson attesting to his guilt. After 14 hours of deliberation, the jury found Peterson guilty of firstdegree murder. In an emotional moment outside the Will County courthouse, Kathleen Savio’s step mother Marcia Savio praised the verdict. “Finally someone heard

Kathleen cry’s, Savio said. “Twelve people did the right thing today. She won today. It’s her victory.” Sentencing for Peterson is scheduled for some time in November. He could serve up to a maximum of 60-years in jail. According to Huma Zia, JD, director of paralegal studies at Lewis University, the defense will file a notice of appeal at the Will County Circuit Court’s Office. “Though a guilty verdict was reached, this case may not be over for a while.” Zia said. The Peterson trial brought to the forefront the use of hearsay testimony and some dispute this type of testimony and the guilty verdict reached by its use. “As to my initial reaction, I think the prosecutors were able to convince the jury, especially during closing arguments, that Drew Peterson did in fact murder his third wife Kathleen

Will County Clerk now accepting requests for absentee ballots Will County Clerk Nancy Schultz Voots announced recently that she is now accepting requests for absentee ballots by mail for the General Election, which will be held on Tuesday, November 6, 2012. Registered voters can request an absentee ballot via www. thewillcountyclerk.com or by calling the Will County Clerk’s office at 815-740-4632 or 815774-6367. The Will County Clerk’s office will need the voter’s name, residence address, mailing address and date of birth at the time of request. The first day ballots can be mailed by law is Thursday, September 27. The last day by law an absentee ballot can be

requested or mailed is Thursday, November 1. In-Person Absentee will be offered at the Will County Clerk’s office beginning September 27 through October 20 and also on November 5.

Savio,” Zia said. “It is interesting to note that one of the more controversial aspects of this case, the hearsay statements, was the what convinced the final jury member to decide that Peterson was guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Zia explains that generally, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that hearsay violates a defendant’s Sixth Amendment right to confront a witness testifying against him or her. This would apply to statements made by Stacy Peterson (Drew’s fourth wife who remains missing) about Drew Peterson’s involvement in Savio’s death to other individuals. Normally, such statements would not be allowed in a trial. “This case, inevitably will be appealed to the Illinois Appellate Court,”she said.“What will be central to the appeal is the validity of the Illinois hearsay exception allowing for such testimony. Depending upon the Illinois Appellate

Court decision, the hearsay exception can be appealed to the Illinois Supreme Court and ultimately the United States Supreme Court. In addition to the constitutionality of the hearsay statements, Peterson’s appellate lawyers may also allege other issues such as whether he was able to receive a fair and impartial trial and perhaps the ineffectiveness of his trial counsel.” However, Illinois passed a special law in 2008 that allows such hearsay evidence in rare instances when prosecutors believe a person was killed to prevent his or her testimony. “This law is now known as ‘Drew’s Law,”’ Zia said. “The constitutional validity of the law is what the Appellate Court needs to consider.” She said other grounds for appeal that Peterson may assert include prosecutorial, misconduct, improper rulings by the trial judge, witnesses committing perjury, improper

jury instructions and an ineffective assistance of defense counsel. States Attorney James Glasglow, among other things, noted this victory was a step toward ending the bullying and horrific nature of domestic violence. The verdict was heard around the nation, and domestic violence advocates came out to encourage victims to come forward, noting people will listen. “This case certainly brings home one more time how deadly domestic violence can be,” Zia said. “However, it might have been more beneficial for those victims of domestic violence and for the public as well, if more publicity was given to the actual issue and potential remedies/programs dealing with domestic violence instead of the sensationalism surrounding the defendant, Drew Peterson.” katauskas@buglenewspapers.com

Will County Board Decision Booted Board candidates await ruling By Sherri Dauskurdas Staff Reporter

An appeal comes down this week that will determine the fate of six candidates vying for Will County Board seats during the November elections. The state Third Judicial District Appellate Court will decide whether the candidates, all Democrats, will be allowed to run after being scratched from the ballot July 24 by

electoral officials who said their appointment was unlawful. “Under Illinois law, the sole responsibility to fill Democrat vacancies on the County Board lies with the County Board District Committee which consists only of the Democratic Precinct Committeemen inside that District,” said Republican Party Chairman Ed Ronkowski. Those committeemen, whose own votes are weighted by the number of voting democrats

Slovenian Grape Harvest Festival on tap Saturday By Jonathan Samples Staff Reporter

The Slovenian Union of America Branch 20 will host their 32nd annual Slovenian Grape Harvest Festival Dance Saturday, and this year’s entertainment guest is bound to impress. Accordion player Steve Meisner will be the 2012 honorary Mayor of the Fest, and he will entertain guests with his unique brand of traditional American polka. “His music is very nice,” SUA representative Jonita Ruth said. “I hear him when he plays sometimes at the Croatian Culture Club on Clement Street.” Meisner is nationally known and has performed at venues throughout the country in places such as Branson Missouri and the Life Festival on the Mall in Washington D.C. Meisner also has performed with some of the top accordionists, polka icons and polka musicians, including Myron Floren and Frank Yankovic. The annual festival, also known as Vinska Trgatev, will be held at St. Joseph Park Hall, 416 N. Chicago St. Doors will open at 3 p.m., and music and dancing will run from 4 to 8 p.m. But if dancing to polka music isn’t your thing, the event will offer a variety of food and refreshments for guests to enjoy. Ruth said that guests can try a variety of Slovenian foods, including sausage and sauerkraut, pulled pork, and potica, a Slovenian pastry. A cash bar also will be available, where guests can try Slovenian wine and beer. Vinska Trgatev is an annual

tradition that coincides with the Slovenian harvest time. Branch 20 celebrates this annual event with its own unique tradition, where festival goers are encouraged to try to steal candy grape bunches from a representation of a Slovenian village square.However, if caught by the “sheriff,” guests will be fined $1. Ruth said the proceeds from anyone caught by the “sheriff” go into a college scholarship fund for members of the SUA. Proceeds from the event also benefit Joliet’s SUA Branch. However, if guests aren’t satisfied with great music, good food, refreshments and raffle prizes, Ruth said the scenery alone is enough for people to come out. “We make St. Joseph hall look like a Slovenian night club or tavern,” Ruth said. “It looks really nice in there. I put up scenery of Bled in Slovenia that covers the whole wall. It would be worth coming in just to see how we decorate.” Tickets are available at the door and cost $10. Children under 10 years old are free.

in their district, he explained, need to be notified when a meeting is held to appoint candidates to the ballot. That notification didn’t happen, he said. Democratic party chairman Scott Pyles immediately filed Petitions for Judicial Review with the court with hopes the Electoral Board decision would be reversed. Candidates who were removed include: Donald

Moran of Romeoville, Reed Bible and Irene Garcia-Wittke of Plainfield, Chester Strzelczyk III of Lockport, Mario Carlasare of Frankfort, Chris Griffin of Naperville and Santino Lettieri and John Sanchez Jr. of Mokena. Bible is already back in the race to fill a different slot in District Five, left open when candidate Michael Costello stepped out of the race. The only former candidate not

named in the appeal, GarciaWittke, could not be reached for comment. That means only six candidates are now awaiting the appeals court ruling, or a request for oral arguments, which is expected to come within the week. The removals are significant because should they stand up to appeal, some Republicans in the county could be running unopposed.

Bertino declines 49th district debate request from Peck By Sherri Dauskurdas Staff Reporter

Election season is heating up locally,as candidates begin the push toward November with campaign pleas, promises and public appearances. Across Illinois candidates, even veteran politicians are facing new audiences, as 59 freshly drawn district boundaries have candidates vying for seats to represent communities new to their jurisdiction.This makes the “getting to know your candidate”process all the more important. In the Illinois 49th District, Candidate Garrett Peck of Plainfield is facing Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant of Shorewood. The new district covers portions of Plainfield, Joliet, Romeoville, Bolingbrook, Shorewood, Crest Hill and Oswego. Peck’s challenged her to what he calls a Lincoln-Douglas style Debate, sometime in October, on neutral ground outside each of the candidate’s hometowns. Bertino-Tarrant has reportedly declined the offer, citing an already scheduled candidate event on Sept.

20 in Romeoville, and subsequent public forums,before the November election day. Peck, a Republican, is a Plainfield business owner and member of the Village of Plainfield Board of trustees. He took the slot over three other primary contenders, including Tony Giles from Oswego; Gary Fitzgerald from Shorewood; and Brian Smith of Plainfield. Democrat Bertino-Tarrant is the Will County Regional Superintendent of Schools. She ran unopposed in the March primary. The Lewis University Grand Haven Candidates Night begins with a casual meet-and-greet with candidates at 5:30 p.m. Thursday Sept. 20, at Lewis University in

Romeoville. Then, at 7:15 p.m. at Grand Haven will host the second half of the evening, which will feature 5-minute introductions from each candidate, followed by a questions and answer session.To date, more than 25 candidates were confirmed to attend. In addition to the Sept. 20 event in Romeoville, candidates have been invited to participate in a panel at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 4, at the Naperville Municipal Center, 400 S. Eagle St., along Aurora Ave. The panel is planned to include State Senate candidates in the 21st and 41st Districts as well as the 49th; along with Illinois House candidates from districts 41, 42, 81, 84, and 97.

I am inspired to write again because of my knowledge of our seniors. I am a proud senior. We are all the same in many ways. We seniors are of substance.We have lived through a depression (eating oatmeal three times a day) and many of us being married, or a family member, who were proud veterans of world war 2. We have heard stories of the invasions in the Atlantic and the Pacific. I speak personally about my husband’s invasion of Normandy (Utah beach). How he made it - to this day -I do not know. This is one of the reasons they called us the “Greatest Generation,” per Tom Brokaw (reporter).

It is wonderful that everyone helps each other. It is always “teamwork” that is in our club that identifies us as true Americans. In the past years, here in the beginning years of our village, homes were always left open (not locked).The children could go to any home together for lunch.There was one telephone to be used by anyone living on one block.Trust was everywhere and everyone. Our motto (my sign at home) are GOD, FAMILY and FRIENDS. Our generation was committed to a marriage, attended church, and fought for our country. We never asked WHY - we did it

Advances in treatments for Multiple Sclerosis After watching Ann Romney’s speech at the Republican Convention, I was impressed by how healthy this survivor of Breast Cancer and Multiple Sclerosis appeared on camera. Chronic illness is extremely difficult to hide.  She must be doing as well as she looks.  Her breast cancer is under control by all accounts, but what about her Multiple Sclerosis?  Isn’t MS a chronic devastating disease?  To be sure, there are still those unfortunate people who are profoundly affected by this disease. But for the majority of sufferers, new medical treatments have vastly improved their prospects.  MS is considered an autoimmune disorder where the body’s immune system attacks normal body tissues.  This internal “civil war” can affect many tissues.  When joints are attacked, it’s called Rheumatoid Arthritis; when blood vessels are attacked is typically called Lupus; and when brain tissue is attacked, it is called Multiple Sclerosis.  The presentation for MS can affect almost any neurological function.  It can affect motor nerves causing muscle weakness or spasm.  It can attack sensory

nerves affecting vision changes, numbness, b l a d d e r control, or pain.  Curiously, intelligence is not affected.  The specific cause is not known. Women are affected twice as often as men. A possible infectious cause has been considered as it has a particular geographical distribution.  It occurs with increasing frequency as you near the poles, and less frequently as you approach the equator. For years the only treatment had been steroids.  This therapy has modest benefit, but was accompanied by significant side effects. The treatment was often worse than the disease.  The next advance was Interferon.  The drugs Avonex and Betaferon were introduced in the 1990’s.  These biological modifiers regulate the body’s immune system to have an antiinflammatory effect. These drugs were more effective, but the side effects were still significant.  They would cause lassitude, weakness, and a protracted flu-

like reaction.  The most serious side effect is an unexplained, profound depression. The last ten years have seen an explosion in new medications.  In general, they are much more effective, and have significantly fewer side effects. In fact, they can be taken for years at a time, with minor side effects, and the potential to return to normal activity. Unfortunately, they are not curative. For this reason they are considered disease-modifying therapy (DMT). They include: • Copaxone:  its mechanism is not fully understood.  It may act like a vaccine for white cells that mediate inflammation • Mitoxantrone:  this is actually a chemotherapy drug which in smaller doses

affects the same white blood cells that mediate inflammation • Tysabri:  this drug’s effect on MS has been stupendous.  Patients with terrible disease have frequently shown remarkable levels of recovery, and can remain so for years if they stay on therapy.  It appears to limit the ability of white cells to migrate into brain tissue where they do their damage. What’s the catch?  This drug causes a condition similar to MS called PML. PML is caused by a virus that can activate from a dormant state when on long term Tysabri.  This is rare.  It occurs in one in 500-1000 patients. • Fingolimod:  relatively new.  Its place in treatment is not yet certain.  

Doctor’s Rx: Multiple Sclerosis no longer has the terrible prognosis of inescapable slow decline and death.  Although it cannot yet be cured, with proper treatment, a normal or near normal life can be attained. If you know an MS sufferer who has given up on treatment, believing that no effective therapy exits, they maybe pleasantly surprised.  They may one day wed a presidential candidate, or run for president themselves!

Spartans fall in SPC opener By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

Over the years, Plainfield Central football coach John Jackson has altered his offensive game plan several times to mold to the type of players he has had on the roster. And while the Wildcats had success throwing the football, don’t be fooled, Jackson loves having success with the smashmouth style of play he has this season. “This is my kind of football,” Jackson said. “I am an old Southern Illinois boy and the style that I always played was strap on the chin strap and let’s party.” Some people thought the offense may look different now as offensive coordinator Greg Jensik took over the play calling. “I turned the offense over to Greg, he has been with me a long time and he deserves it,” Jackson said. “People thought we would be firing the ball 40 times a game. I told them even though he was a wide out, there is a lot more of me in Greg than people know.” The style they are playing this year with running backs Jordan Ellingwood, Gino Giarratano

and Tyler Erdmann has paid off so far this season, as Central has opened the year 3-0 and started Southwest Prairie Conference play 1-0 after a 42-0 shutout of rival Romeoville. The Spartans beat Central 4946 in the final game last season to knock the Wildcats out of the playoffs. “I know the Romeoville game last year really stuck in their craw,” said Jackson. “Jordan ran angry tonight. Gino ran well, the defense was superb. It was one of those rock-em, sock-em, knockdown, drag-out nights for us. “Tyler didn’t get as many touches tonight because of the way they were pinching their tackles, it kind of eliminated See SPARTANS, page 19

CHASE Continued from page 1 “We are looking forward to Chicagoland and hopefully get a good start to this,” he said. “We have never won a championship and we are going out there trying to win our first.” Hamlin is followed in the new point standings by Jimmie Johnson, one of the HMS drivers, who had won five straight NASCAR titles prior to last season. He is looking to get bact to the top of the sport. I feel good about it,” Johnson said. “The last couple weeks, we haven’t had the best performances, but the 10 tracks in the Chase are really good for this 48 team. I have won a lot of races on eight of those 10 tracks.” Last year’s winner in Joliet and winner of the Sprint Cup, Tony Stewart sits in the third seed. “After last year, we realize next week is the start of the second part of the season for us,” Stewart said. Stewart came in last year seeded toward the bottom, but won four of the 10 Chase races to earn the title over Carl Edwards who failed to make the cut this season. Lost in the excitement of the Chase Saturday night was the race win by Clint Bowyer, who is one of two drivers (Greg Biffle) six points behind Hamlin entering the Chase. It was Bowyer’s second win of the season. In his sixth year as a Cup driver, this marks the fourth time Boyer has made the Chase. His best finish is third, and he says as long as he is in it, winning sounds pretty good. “It would be pretty big,”Bowyer said.“It would be a helluva lot of fun. Jimmie seems like he has a blast doing it. I promise you, I

can throw a better party than him. I might not survive it, but it would be big.” Matt Kenseth, who just last week announced he would join Hamlin and Busch at JGR next season, is nine points back along with fan favorite Dale Earnhardt, Jr. “I think the team is in great shape,” Kenseth said.“I can’t wait to go to Chicago and race there. We know we need some wins to have a chance at this thing, so hopefully we can have a chance there.” There is no driver in the sport that fans would like to see win more than Earnhardt. “I feel like we have a good shot at it,” he said.“We have been consistent all year long. I feel that it will take a couple wins to win a championship. We have run well everywhere and look forward to getting things kicked off.” Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex, Jr. round out the Chase, which kicks off Sunday at Chicagoland at 1 p.m. in Joliet. mark@buglenewspapers.com

Hendrick all in for Chicagoland By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

With Kasey Kahne and Jeff Gordon taking the two wild card spots in the Chase for the Sprint Cup, all four drivers for Hendrick Motorsports qualified for the top 12 spots and a chance at the NASCAR championship. “I think it is great for our company and everybody who works at Hendrick Motor Sports,” Kahne said. “All the hard work they have done this year to give us four of the 12 fastest cars in the Chase, I feel really good about that.” Roush-Fenway Racing (Greg Biffle and Matt Kenseth) and Michael Waltrip Racing (Clint Bowyer and Martin Truex, Jr.) each have a pair of machines in the Chase. Joe Gibbs Racing (Denny Hamlin), Stewart-Haas (Tony Stewart) and Richard Childress Racing (Kevin Harvick) all have one car in the finals.

to Chicagoland Speedway to kick off the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, Matt Kenseth and Kurt Busch will make a friendly wager as the Chicago Bears take on the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. Kenseth, a native of Cambridge, Wis., is a life-long Green Bay fan who attends four to five Packers games a year. Busch, who hails from Las Vegas, Nev., but has family in Chicago’s Northwest suburbs, is a die-hard Bears fan who will head up to Wisconsin to witness one of the National Football League’s most storied rivalries. Should the Bears win, Kenseth will have to wear a Chicago Bears jersey to Sunday’s drivers meeting. Should the Packers emerge victorious, Busch will be sporting the green and gold before the start of the GEICO 400. Unsurprisingly, Busch is not lacking confidence heading into the Week 2 matchup. “This is a no-brainer. Cutler to Marshall to start it, Urlacher and Peppers to finish it,” said Busch, driver of the No. 51 for Phoenix

right now, but Green Bay is going to bring them right back down to earth,” said Kenseth, driver of the No. 17 for Roush Fenway Racing. “I think Aaron Rodgers will do Kurt a favor and get this one over by halftime just so we can have a little extra sleep before we head

Whoever touches the ball is going to pound and pound the ball and get every yard possible.” The Wildcats (3-0, 1-0) did most of their damage in the first quarter, opening up a 21-0 lead. Ellingwood scored his first touchdown at the 8:17 mark and was followed by Giarratano’s 15yard score on the next Central possession. The final score of the quarter came with no time remaining on the clock when 6-foot-2, 330-pound defensive lineman Bryce Douglas scored his first career touchdown on a 1-yard run. “I do whatever is needed to score,” Douglas said. “All I was thinking is don’t fumble and get the team six points. It felt good.

with Roush in a really competitive situation and now I am looking forward to going to the next chapter in my career.” However, Kenseth says is not looking to that next chapter until his contract expires. Until then, he said he is focused on winning. “We still have 11 races to go and I feel like we are competitive,” Kenseth said. “This (decision) is about 2013 and beyond. I am 100 percent committed to Roush and getting the 17 car to run and win races and compete for a championship. I am there until the first of the year and then we

will make the transition.” Kenseth had been a member of RFR since his rookie season and is not worried that the business decision he made will impact his relationship with Jack Roush. “I’m sure Jack is probably disappointed, but we will work through that,” Kenseth said. “We have had a great relationship for 14 or 15 years, so I don’t think it will change. I think we will get through this and continue to be great friends.” As for the trickledown effect of Kenseth’s decision, RFR promoted 2011 NASCAR Nationwide Series

champion Ricky Stenhouse Jr. to the No. 17 car to fill Kenseth’s ride. “Ricky probably loves me right now,” Kenseth said. As for Logano, Gibbs was trying to work out a fourth team and

Now everyone in the family has a touchdown. My brothers always bragged that they had scored because they were both running backs.” Douglas was in again on Ellingwood’s third touchdown, this time as a lead blocker. “It is like following a freight train back there,” Ellingwood said. “I can’t even see where I am running, I just follow him. Being a 330-pound man as a 17-year-old must be nice.” Just as important as scoring to Douglas was keeping the Spartans from getting on the board. “They knocked us out of the

playoffs last year and it has been eating at us,” he said. “We have been working for this all summer and it is even better that we shut them out.” Romeoville coach Jeff Kuna had little to say following the contest. “We got beat by the better team tonight,” he said.“That’s all I have.” The Wildcats move to 3-0 for the first time since 2000 when then went 11-0 before losing in the third round of the playoffs. Romeoville travels to Oswego. Oswego shut out Minooka 42-0 Friday night as well.

Chemistry key for Spartans By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

This season the Romeoville is having success on the soccer field and coach Nick Cirrincione thinks he knows why.

ROUNDUP “This is a great group of guys,” he said.“We had a great summer and the results are here because of the commitment level. We consistently had 20 guys there in the summer and they are all contributing on the varsity level.” Cirrincione said the teak camaraderie is strong this year. “The whole team goes to Subway after school, they go to breakfast together on Saturday mornings, they play video games together,” he said. “They really get along well. They are high school students and high school students want to have fun. Winning is more fun. We

have a good group of guys, especially our seniors. We are young with 14 guys coming back, but the seniors now and leaders.” With the Southwest Prairie Conference play coming up, Cirrincione says he will not predict the Spartans’ finish this year. “No predictions this season,” he said. “I did that last year and we barely won a game. Its high school soccer, if you can score, you will win games.”

VOLLEYBALL Romeoville fell to Oswego 2522, 25-19. Giana Dever had six kills and three blocks, while Danielle Neugenbauer and Jasmine Benitez each tallied six assists.

BOYS CROSS Romeoville placed 16th at the Plainfield Central Invite.

Women’s harriers finish 11th at the Midwest Open Lewis University sophomore Monica Hahn (New Lenox, Ill./ Lincoln-Way West) led all Flyer harriers on Saturday (Sept. 8) morning with a 49th-place finish of 20:29 at the 5K UW-Parkside Midwest Cross Country Open at the Dannehl Cross Country Course.

LEWIS Northern Michigan won the race with a score of 47 points, while the Flyers were 11th overall with 291 points. Lewis sophomore Elizabeth Roush (South Bend, Ind./ Riley) was the second Flyer to cross the finish line with a 57th-place showing of 20:39.9. Flyer freshman Kaitlyn Sendzik (Chicago, Ill./Mt. Assisi) placed 67th (20:55.6), while fellow freshman Paige Gatter (Geneseo, Ill./Geneseo) finished 77th (21:13.4). Lewis freshman Arely Castillo (Joliet, Ill./Joliet Central) was the final scoring Flyer with a 98th-place finish of 21:55.2.

WOMEN’S SOCCER The Lewis women’s soccer team fell 1-0, to Missouri S&T in

opening weekend Great Lakes Valley Conference play on Sunday (Sept. 9) at Lewis Stadium. The Miners (3-1, 1-1 GLVC) snap the Flyers (3-1, 1-1 GLVC) win streak at three games. The Flyers dominated scoring opportunities, getting five of six first-half shots on goal, including two goals that were called off, one for obstruction and the other an offside call. “I am disappointed in the result,” Lewis head women’s soccer coach Chris Koenig said. “We had some momentum in the first half and we have been working on some set pieces in practice, so at this point to see two goals brought back (was tough).” Senior Fran Abate (Bartlett, Ill./ Bartlett) and freshman Jessica Saffell (Aurora, Ill./West Aurora) each had two of Lewis’ six shots on goal against the Miners goalkeeper Kaitlyn Deister. “At the end of the day there are no excuses, give S&T some credit they battled the whole game and made it difficult to score,” Koenig said. “We had our chances today and we didn’t capitalize.” All three of the Miners’ shots came in the second half, including

the game’s only goal. On a corner play, Kendra Wood was able to place the ball in front of the goal for Kim Ekholm to head past Lewis’ goalkeeper Arianna Nie. “We know the GLVC is going to be a lot of games like this,” Koenig said. “so we will get back to practice on Monday and prepare for a tough road trip.”

MEN’S SOCCER Lewis University freshman midfielder Luke Comerouski (Itasca, Ill./Christian Liberty Academy) posted his first collegiate goal and added an assist to help the host Flyers to the 2-1 come-from-behind Great Lakes Valley Conference victory over Missouri S&T at Lewis Stadium on Sunday (Sept. 9) afternoon. “It was a tale of two halves,” Lewis head men’s soccer coach Evan Fiffles said. “They were better in the first half. “In the second half, we put some things together that we’ve been working on in practice and we were able to capitalize on it.” With the win, Lewis improves to 2-2 on the season and 2-0 in GLVC action, while the visiting Miners are now 1-2-1 overall and

0-2 in conference play. Missouri S&T got on the board in the first half, as junior Timmy Kenny converted a penalty kick following a Lewis handball in the box at 36:08. Comerouski scored the equalizer in the 62nd minute, as he hauled in a rebound off of a George Thomson (Kilmarnock, Scotland/Reid Kerr College) shot. Senior defender Robert McGowan (Mokena, Ill./LincolnWay East) also assisted on the play. Less than a minute later, Flyer freshman Joe White (Hertfordshire, United Kingdom/ Birchwood) scored the gamewinning goal at the 62:52 mark. Thomson and Comerouski both assisted on the play. Lewis goalkeeper Alec Pickett (Mokena, Ill./Providence Catholic) made five saves in goal, while his counterpart Donny Gesell also made five stops.

WOMEN’S VOLLEYBALL No. 17 Lewis Women’s Volleyball fell to No. 5 Central Missouri 3-2, (25-22, 22-25, 28-

26, 19-25, 15-11) in the morning session of the Colorado Premier Challenge. In their afternoon match, the Flyers took on No. 9 Angelo State for the third-place title in the bronze bracket, falling 3-1. The Flyers fall to 3-5 on the season, all in tournament action. The Jennies improved to 4-3 on the season, while the Belles sit at 6-2. “(Against both teams) we were in position to win multiple times,” Lewis head women’s volleyball coach Lorelle Smith said. “We were just unable to rise above in clutch situations.” Against Central Missouri, redshirt senior Colleen Mitros (Mokena, Ill./ Providence Catholic) lead the Flyers with 24 kills, 15 digs and two assists while senior Jen Krumwiede (Elkhart, Ill./Elkhart Memorial) had a double-double with 16 digs and 13 kills. Junior libero Amy Choi lead the defense with 29 digs and six assists against the Jennies. Central Missouri had four players with double digit kills while Annie Reilly lead the Jennies with 30 digs and Julia Bates had 49 assists in five sets.

Quick start propels Plainfield North to win By Scott Taylor Sports Reporter Online @ buglenewspapers.com Video

After two possessions Plainfield North held a 14-0 lead on Plainfield South and its two scoring drives couldn’t have been any different. The first was a 77-yard touchdown run by Jay Roberts on the first play from scrimmage. “It felt great,” Roberts said. “The offensive line made a huge hole. Everything about that play was perfect.” After forcing a three-and-out, the Tigers then marched the ball downfield. Seventeen plays and two fourth down conversions later,Trent Cavin plowed in from a yard out, capping the 71-play drive. “It’s huge coming out to a fast start,” North quarterback Kurt Palandech said. “Offensively we came out and scored right away and got us momentum. Then the defense gave the ball right back to us.” That helped fuel the Tigers (2-1 overall, 1-0 in Southwest Prairie Conference) to a 35-19 win over the Cougars (1-2, 0-1) Friday at North. “That’s pretty good stuff, for sure,” North coach Tim Kane said. “I thought our kids came out ready to play. It was nice to be able to keep the ball away from them, too.” “They got off to a real good start,” South coach Ken Bublitz said. “That set the tone for the game. We had ourselves in position to make a run, but we had to finish some drives.” South battled back from the early deficit and got a 24-

yard field goal from Matthew Imburgia. North appeared to get a 71-yard touchdown run from Palandech, but the play was called back.That led to a bad snap on the ensuing punt and South had it first and goal from the North 1-yard line. Ricky Luna plowed in from there to make it 14-9. With all the momentum to the Cougars, North responded with a 14-yard touchdown pass from Palendech to Brett Fox to take a 21-9 lead at the half. Palendech broke the game open in the third quarter with a 22-yard touchdown run to make it 28-9. Jonathan Kosirog returned the ensuing kickoff for a touchdown, but it was called back due to penalty and they ended up not scoring. That was the story of the second half for the Cougars, who outgained the Tigers 178117 in the second half after being outgained 249-87 in the first half. “We have to finish,”Bublitz said. “Not finishing is the difference. We battled back and were in great position. I’m very proud of our guys (for battling back).” South added a 31-yard field goal from Imburgia and a 31yard touchdown pass from Luna to Mike Valentine. Jay Roberts had a 35-yard scamper for the Tigers to finish their scoring. Roberts finished with 184 yards on 26 carries, while Palandech added 74 yards on 11 totes. Kosirog carried 13 times for 89 yards for the Cougars and Joshua Harris ran for 59 yards on four attempts. staylor@buglenewspapers.com

When being dumb is a smart idea Q. I work with a very smart guy who seems to make everything complicated. We often have to explain projects to customers. How do I get him to dumb it down, so we don’t lose projects, without insulting him? A. If you don’t want to insult your bright colleague, then realize smart people often don’t realize that half the population doesn’t think the way they do. Many very smart people don’t realize two facts about communicating at work: 1) When talking to someone less intellectually capable than you,give lots of information to have them understand what you understood in two sentences. Don’t express irritation about this.

2) Realize no one at work will admit when they don’t understand you. Albert Einstein (reportedly a fairly smart guy) once said,“If you can’t explain it to a 6- year-old, you don’t understand it yourself.” Einstein makes an excellent point that understanding a concept may not be hard. Explaining that same concept to anyone else can be daunting. Many of my very smart clients have spent long careers being offended that so many people

ignored their good ideas. When I pointed out that most of their coworkers had no idea what they were talking about, my clients were shocked. They have never considered other people didn’t understand their ideas. Before your next important client meeting, meet privately with your coworker. Let him know that you admire his quick intellect. Let him know that you’ve noticed the clients don’t seem to be as quick witted as he is. Tell him you want to give clients information an elementary student would track, and then brainstorm together. Realize that your coworker probably has no clue that your clients feel dumb around him.

Once he sees he is talking over the heads of your clients, he’ll be motivated to simplify and expand what he says. Just because your coworker is a bright guy doesn’t mean he is insightful about human beings. We are usually so worried about our own inadequacies that we may not notice the vulnerability of others at work. Most clients would rather lose your help than lose face by admitting they can’t understand what you are saying. In the next meeting, your clients won’t have to pick between losing face and losing your help.You’ll get the projects, your colleague will get a clue, and your clients will get your expertise!

The last word(s) Q. Is there a way to know when your career has hit a dead end? A. Yes, when you can’t make a door in the wall you keep hitting.

Should I buy the car or turn it in? Dear Dave, I made the mistake of leasing a car a while back, and the lease is up in about nine months. Should I save up the money between now and then to buy it, or save as much as I can to pay down my student loans? Aaron Dear Aaron, At the end of a lease the price for which you can purchase the car is called the residual value.This amount is preset when you lease the vehicle. So the big question right now is, what’s the car actually worth? If the company thought it would be worth $12,000 and it’s actually worth $14,000, that would be a good deal, and you’d want to buy it instead of turning in the car. Even if you were going to turn around and resell it, you’d still want to go ahead and buy. Another big thing is that I’d never tell you to finance a car after the lease term. There’s no difference between that and walking onto a car lot and financing any other $12,000 car. Look at it this way. You basically have a $12,000 car loan right now, and you’d only be changing the format from leasing to payments if you financed the thing. Should you keep this vehicle? Only if it’s a

small percentage of your income. If you make $60,000 or more, I’d probably say save up, pay cash, and keep the car. But if you’re making closer to $30,000 the answer is no. —Dave

Fun to date, not to marry Dear Dave, I’m dating a man who is really exciting and fun, but he has well over $100,000 in debt. He has nice cars, a boat and he travels a lot, and he does it all on credit. He wants us to get married, but his view of money worries me. What should I do? Vickie Dear Vickie, The fact that you’re worried about this situation means you realize that fun and exciting don’t necessarily translate into being wise. I’m sure he’s a nice guy, but your concern tells me that you two are from completely different planets when it comes to handling money. And that can be a death knell to a marriage. Disagreements over money and finances are the number-one cause of marital strife and divorce in North America today. Fighting over debt and the stress brought on by financial problems will take a heavy toll on any relationship. When you’re not on the same page with how to handle your money, you’re not on the same page of

life. How you spend your money says volumes about who you are, where your values lie, and what’s important to you. This guy is fun because he’s impulsive and has a lot of toys. But the fact that he’s gone into debt for this lifestyle also means he’s a little boy and not a responsible man. And unless you guys can get on the same page with how money is handled, I would strongly advise not going forward with a wedding. For this to get serious and turn into marriage material, one of you will have to change. Either he’ll have to straighten up and start behaving wisely with money, or

you’ll have to agree to enjoy living deeply in debt. —Dave * Dave Ramsey is America’s trusted voice on money and business. He’s authored four New York Times best-

NASCAR picks Who will win the Geico 400? Mark: Matt Kenseth With everything finally settled and his contract signed with Joe Gibbs Racing for next year, I think Kenseth is primed to win the first race in the Chase. The winner of the Daytona 500, Kenseth has been dealing all season with where he will race in 2013. While he says it wasn’t a huge distraction, how could it not be? After having to make a decision to leave Roush Fenway after 13 years, then sign with Joe Gibbs and then to top it off have to play dumb when his move to the No. 20 car was the worst kept secret in NASCAR. Now that it’s all done, Kentseth can focus on parting ways with RFR with a Sprint Cup title. To win the race, Kenseth will have to battle with Tony Stewart, last year’s winner of both the Geico 400 and the Sprint Cup. After a crash two weeks ago, Stewart vowed to wreck Kenseth every chance he gets the rest of the year. Scott: Carl Edwards With all the struggles Edwards has had this year, it would only seem fitting for him to come up big when it doesn’t really matter for him.After fighting Tony Stewart to the finish in the chase last year, Edwards was left out of the race this year due to constant struggles. Now there is no pressure on him and while he hasn’t had the best record in Joliet, he is clearly capable of taking the checkered flag. That lack of pressure should give him an all-or-nothing mentality. While the chasers have to be careful not to fall behind early in the chase, Edwards can take chances and go for the win, knowing that a 30th place finish won’t be costly in the points race. Another option here would be Kyle Busch, who has also had a disappointing year and is not in

Will Dale Earnhardt, Jr. (left) or Denny Hamlin be crowned NASCAR champion?

the chase. He has won here before and is always all about winning. Remember, last year I picked Stewart to win, and he did!

Who will win Chase? Mark: Dale Earnhardt, Jr. After years of trying to get back to his winning ways, Dale Earnhardt Jr. has found his way back this season. Junior might not get the win in the Geico 400 Sunday, but he will get the needed wins over the course of the 10 race playoff and

claim the title this season. Junior has dedicated himself more this season to becoming a complete driver and paying more attention to what is going on with the car off the track and working with his team more in the setup of the car each week. That added knowledge added to his raw ability to drive will win NASCAR’s favorite driver a title this year, although it won’t be easy. Earnhardt is joined by all three of his Hendrick Motor Sports

teammates and will benefit from racing his teammates, including five-time winner Jimmie Johnson, to the finish. Scott: Denny Hamlin Hamlin has been very close to winning the title in the past and is more than capable of pulling it off. He comes into the chase with a three-point lead, thanks to winning four races this year, the most by anyone. On top of that, he has won two of the past three races, so he is peaking at the right time. He also

has a good amount of success on tracks that make up the chase. The time is now for him to break through and in a wide-open chase, he has a good of a chance as anyone, especially Earnhardt Jr., who can’t even win a race! The only downfall is that Hamlin can flame out early in the chase with some bad finishes, which he has done in the past, and make me look dumb. However, I think he will deliver the goods this year and bring the title to Joe Gibbs Racing.
