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.

Nascar

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 16

VILLAGE HIRES INTERIM ADMIN

Contract approved for third administrator in 18 months

Vol. 17 No. 40

By Sherri Dauskurdas Staff Reporter

Shorewood village official hope the third time is a charm, as they recently have hired the third person to serve as village administrator in the last 18 months. Shorewood trustees approve contract for Art Osten, formerly a village manager in far northwest suburban Fox River Grove, to replace Jeffrey Fiegenschuh, who held the job from November 2011 through May 2012 before leaving for personal reasons. Mayor Rick Chapman and Public Works Director Roger Barrowman have been carrying the weight of the position since Fiegenschuh left in May. Fiegenschuh was hired after a six-month search for a replacement for previous village administrator Kurt Carroll, who left Shorewood for nearby New Lenox. The village’s economic development manager, Nancy Roman, soon followed Carroll to New Lenox. No doubt frustrated by the ordeal of finding a replacement, Chapman and the Village Board cautiously approved Osten’s appointment as an interim administrator, his contract valid through the end of April 2013. In Fox River Grove, a McHenry County community, Osten held the role of as village administrator for more than 14 years before being let go in March, reportedly because board members expressed a desire to hire a village administrator who required a lower salary and who could focus on downtown development. Osten was scheduled to be on the job in Shorewood this week.

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, includingTony 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.

Cross honored with “Guardian of Small Business” Award In recognition of his steadfast support of the small business community and continued leadership to advance progrowth economic policies, State

Rep. Tom Cross (R-Oswego) has been honored with the “Guardian of Small Business” Award from the National Federation of Independent

Business/Illinois. “Leader Tom Cross has demonstrated time and again his willingness to fight for small business owners and help preserve their ability to grow and succeed,” said Kim Clarke Maisch, NFIB/Illinois State Director. “The economy, higher taxes and increased regulations have been bad enough. Small business owners need legislators who are willing to take the tough votes and work towards making a Illinois a better place to do business. The NFIB is especially appreciative of Rep. Cross’ leadership on increasing the exemption for the Illinois Death Tax from $2 million to $4 million, an issue

that is extremely important to many family owned businesses and farmers in our state.” Every two years, the NFIB scores legislators based on key small business votes they take in the Illinois General Assembly. The “Guardian” Award is provided to those who score 80 percent or better. “I am honored to accept this award and thank the small business community throughout the state for their hard work and perseverance during these difficult economic times,” Rep. Cross said. “It is truly a privilege to work with such outstanding partners like the NFIB and others who share our commitment to support job

creators and entrepreneurs.” The NFIB has over 11,000 small business members in Illinois who count on lawmakers, the Governor and other elected officials to foster a competitive business environment through limited government, fewer regulations and market-driven public policies. The Small Business Administration estimates small businesses create about 65% of the nation’s net new jobs. For more information on Rep. Cross’ advocacy and leadership on behalf of small business, please contact Cross’ office at (815) 254-0000 or visit www. tomcross.com<http://www. tomcross.com/>.

Jury finds Drew Peterson guilty After 14 hours of deliberation, jury finds Peterson guilty of first-degree murder 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 Savio,” Zia said. “It is interesting

City changes payroll, timekeeping service By Jonathan Samples Staff Reporter

The city of Joliet is in the process of finalizing a contract with ADP Payroll Services to take over timekeeping and payroll services for city employees. Joliet currently uses Ceridian Corporation for payroll processing and city employees for timekeeping, but city officials felt the switch could ultimately lead to greater efficiency and greater transparency. “We began looking at ways to develop efficiency, and one of those areas was timekeeping and payroll,”Thanas said.“The Ceridian payroll system was working for us, but the timekeeping system was not necessarily what was going to work to our advantage.” The proposal was endorsed by the Communication, Technology and Information Systems Committee and approved by the City Council last week. Thanas said the increase in efficiency

would free up employees currently involved with time keeping duties, and eventually lead to a net savings for the city. “The savings will come from developing automated timekeeping,” Thanas said. “Timekeeping is a very labor intensive job. Some city departments are currently using manual timekeeping. They’re using actual punch cards.” The city’s current three-year contract with Ceridian has one year remaining, but Thanas is hopeful that the city will be able to exercise a provision in the existing contract that would allow them to end it one year early. City official are hoping to have the new ADP system fully implemented by Jan. 1, 2013. The initial cost for the new system will $223,000, which will come from an earmarked fund. “We have funds in the 2012 budget that will cover that cost,” Thanas said.

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

This event gave participants a chance to learn more about our great interactive programs, classes, recreational activities, social services, volunteer opportunities, and more.” Plainfield resident Marion Schmalz attended the event and said it was “very informative”

and that she came out to hear some answers from a live person, rather than an automated phone system. “In talking with attendees, I heard over and over how seniors really appreciated the opportunity to meet face-to-face with representatives from government agencies and get answers to their questions,” said Biggert.“Whether they had questions on Medicare prescription drug coverage, the RTA reduced fare program, or property tax assistance, the event gave seniors the chance to put government to work for them.And that’s the way it should be. I place a high priority on constituent services and I value the input of area seniors who encouraged me to continue fighting to safeguard and strengthen Medicare for years to come.” Laura Katauskas contributed to this report.

Slovenian Grape Public hearings to be Harvest Festival held on opt-in electric on tap Saturday aggregation program 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.

A public hearing was conducted by the city of Joliet Tuesday to receive public comment concerning the city’s proposed plan of operation and governance for the city of Joliet opt-in electric aggregation program. Another public hearing is scheduled for Sept. 18, during the regularly scheduled City Council meeting that will be held at 6:30 p.m. in the Little Theater of Joliet Central High School, 201 E. Jefferson St., Joliet. The meeting room is accessible to persons with disabilities. Electric aggregation is a program that allows local governments to bundle or “aggregate” residential and small commercial retail electric accounts and seek bids for a most cost effective supply of power. Currently, ComEd customers receive electricity at a price set each year by the Illinois Power Agency, a governmental body that secures electricity on the

wholesale market on behalf of ComEd. By bundling residential and small commercial accounts, municipalities can go out into the open market to seek a lower rate for electrical supply. The city of Joliet has partnered with the Will County Governmental League to join 16 other municipalities in purchasing electricity from First Energy Solutions at a rate that will be about 40 percent less than the current rate assessed residential and small business customers. Details of the power purchase agreement will be discussed at the public hearings. Not all ComEd accounts will be eligible for participation in the city of Joliet Electric Aggregation Program. The following are minimum requirements to determine eligibility. All customers must be located within boundaries of the Joliet. All residential customers are eligible. However, any non-residential customers

must have an annual electrical demand not exceeding 15,000 kilowatt hours will also be eligible. Switching from ComEd to another electricity supplier will be completely seamless and there will be no service interruption. A letter from the city of Joliet on official City letterhead will explain to eligible customers how to join the “opt in” buying program. ComEd will continue to be responsible for the delivery of electricity, maintenance, and will respond to power outages. “Bills will continue to come from ComEd with the electrical supplier being listed as the supplier on the bill,” City Manager Tom Thanas said. The mayor and City Council are expected to review and take action on the plan at the Sept. 18, 2012, regular City Council meeting. A copy of the Plan is available in the office of the City Clerk and on the City’s website www.cityofjoliet.info.

Schools

BMO Harris donates downtown building to USF Representatives from BMO Harris Bank, Joliet Mayor Tom Giarrante and members of the University of St. Francis community joined local officials Friday for a ceremony commemorating the donation of the Mode Theatre building to the university for expansion of its educational programs. “By collaborating with the city of Joliet and the University of St. Francis, we will be able to jumpstart an important economic development project to help spur growth in downtown Joliet,” said Chris McComish, executive vice president, Retail Banking, BMO Harris Bank. “With our donation we hope future students will have greater opportunities to enrich their lives in an economically thriving community.” USF President Michael J.

Vinciguerra said the building donation enhances the university’s downtown presence. “We appreciate that both the city of Joliet and BMO Harris Bank recognize the importance of having Joliet’s university grow its downtown activities,” he said. “BMO Harris Bank has shown particular acumen in pursuing this collaboration, which contributes to the downtown revitalization as well as to higher education programming.” City of Joliet officials worked closely with the bank and university to ensure use of the Mode building will be synergistic with plans for the downtown, said Vinciguerra. These plans include a $55 million transportation center to be achieved by federal, state

and city investment; a $1 million downtown plaza on which the Mode will sit; and the Joliet Junior College building construction to house its culinary arts program. Plans for the Mode will maximize collaborative opportunities and enhance the university’s other investments in downtown, providing access to new student populations, said Vinciguerra. USF located its Art & Design Department in renovated Rialto Square Theatre space in 2009 and will soon open an art gallery in the building. The city helped finance Rialto renovations that included the Art & Design educational space. The galley renovation is funded in part by a $50,000 grant from the Will County Board. The university also uses Silver Cross Field as its home field

BMO Harris Bank has donated the former Mode Theatre building to the University of St. Francis (USF), which will expand its downtown operations. Pictured at Friday’s commemoration ceremony are (left to right) Joliet Mayor Tom Giarrante; Chris McComish, executive vice president Retail Banking, BMO Harris Bank; USF President Michael J.

for the Fighting Saints baseball team. The Mode building is a former 18,000-square-foot movie theater, built in 1908. It housed a 750-seat movie theater that operated until the mid-1980s when it was converted into multi-tenant office space. The BMO Harris Bank obtained title to the building in 2009. The university plans to renovate the building in phases to potentially house such university programs as transportation and logistics,

entrepreneurship, hospitality management, criminal and social justice. Plans for use, however, are not finalized, Vinciguerra said. “Natural synergies exist for many of our programs to be located in the downtown,” he said.“We will closely study how to best tie our programming to the needs and opportunities of the community. Locating additional programming in downtown Joliet further manifests USF’s identity as a Catholic, Franciscan university in an urban setting.”

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, bladder 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 anti-inflammatory 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 m e d i c a t i o n s . 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.  • 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!

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.

STACHE BASH Jeff Gordon is a man of his word. The driver of the No. 24 Chevy said earlier in the season if he made the Chase he would bring back the infamous moustache he donned in his early years in the sport. Gordon said over Twitter Sunday morning after making the Chase, “So as many of u may have heard, I made a statement that if we made the Chase I wud bring back the stache. I’m a man of my word.” So, fans, look for a slightly harrier Gordon in Joliet.

OFF TRACK BET Prior to heading to Chicagoland Speedway to kick

Rick Hendrick, right, has all four of his drivers, from left, Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Jeff Gordon and Kasey Kahne (not pictured) on the Chase for the Sprint Cup.

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 Racing. “A 2-0 start to the season for the Bears will be great, but seeing Kenseth in navy and orange will definitely be an added bonus.” For his part, Kenseth isn’t too worried about the matchup. “Everyone in Chicago is excited 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 to Chicagoland Speedway  to go racing.”

TWICE AS NICE While Luke Bryan is getting all the headlines for performing prior to the Geico 400, there will be a million dollar act Saturday as well. Million Dollar Quartet will make its second appearance of the season at Chicagoland Speedway on Saturday, Sept.15, at as part of the Dollar General 300 Powered by Coca-Cola pre-race activities.After delivering a rousing performance at the  Speedway in July, the Quartet will return to deliver another rendition of the National Anthem as well as a prerace concert in Champions Park. Million Dollar Quartet is a Tonynominated musical inspired by the famed and impromptu 1956 recording session in Memphis, Tenn., that brought together legendary rock ‘n’ roll icons

Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley.

SPONSOR ANYONE? Despite winning the 2011 NASCAR title and the sitting in third in the 2012 Chase, Tony Stewart will be looking for a coprimary sponsor after it was announced Office Depot won’t be returning in 2013. While Mobil 1 is set to return as a primary backer for about half the races next year, Stewart will have to find someone to pick up the rest of the tab for his No. 14 car.

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

KENSETH Continued from page 2 here and I am excited to work with Denny and Kyle,” Kenseth said. “They are both winners at the top of their game and it makes you work harder to run like those guys. These guys here are always in positions to win championships. In my life, things have happened and have not happened for a reason. I know without a doubt at all, this is the right place for me to go next year. I spent 15 years 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

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

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 keep him. However, when AJ Allmendinger was suspended for drug use, that ride opened and Logano signed with Penske racing to drive the No. 22 car next season. mark@buglenewspapers.com

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.

Steelmen, Raiders fumble way into record books By Mark Gregory Sports Reporter

Joliet Central and Bolingbrook were each able to get themselves in the Illinois High School Association record books, not once, but twice Saturday. The Steelmen (0-3) reached the book on the positive side by recovering six lost fumbles by Bolingbrook, the fourth best in state history. However, Joliet Central helped the Raiders one up them, as Bolingbrook recovered nine lost fumbles, eight on defense one on a muffed kick-off return. That number is good to stand all alone in second place all time in recoveries in a game. The record is 10 set by Downers Grove against West Aurora in 1922. Bolingbrook (3-0) added an interception and a recovered kickoff to have 11 takeaways total in the game. Neither coach, however, was overly concerned about the turnovers in 54-6 win by Bolingbrook. The majority of Bolingbrook’s miscues were by their nonstarters, who were in early with the game past the 40-point running clock mark in by halftime. “We had two JV games canceled and haven’t played one yet, so that was the first real work for some of our twos and threes,” said Raiders coach John Ivlow. “Had we played a few JV games, I’m sure they would have looked just as good as the rest of them.” Central coach Brett Boyter knows the Steelmen were just trying to fight for every yard they could get and can fix the problem if they learn when to fight. “We try and rush a lot and we have to be quick and not be in a hurry,” Boyter said. “It’s about knowing when you need to get the extra yard and I’m down, they got me, secure the football and go down. And some of it is carrying the ball. If there is a drill out there to eliminate that in a week, someone please call me.” The Raiders jumped out fast,

when quarterback Aaron Bailey hit Chandler Piekarski for a deep strike to open the game and then connected with him in the flat for a score two plays later. “We have made an effort to start throwing more,” Piekarski said. “We all want the ball more, sure, but we are a family and we are going to do what is best for the team and the school. They do the best to try and get me the ball and they try and find me when I’m open.” The Raiders scored five times

on their first 23 plays of the game as five different running backs (John Howard, Omar Stover, John Hall, Jaden Huff and Arrien Richardson) all scored on the ground. Bailey was 4-of-6 passes for 82 yards, three passes for 68 yards to Piekarski. Stover paced the team with 75 yards rushing and two scores, while Bailey also rushed for 51 and Howard had 50. Aside from recovering 11 turnovers, the Raider defense scored twice, as Emile Wisdom

recovered a fumble forced by Julian Huff in the end zone and Nana Appah returned another fumble 36 yards for the game’s final score. Central tallied less than 100 yards of total offense, but more than half of their yards came on a fourth quarter, 48-yard TD pass from Carlos Curry to Romello Clark. Bolingbrook faces Joliet West (1-2) next Saturday, while Central travels to Lockport (0-3) Friday night. mark@buglenewspapers.com

Indians beat Plainfield North in SPC opener By Scott Taylor Sports Editor

Minooka looked impressive in its defense of its Southwest Prairie Conference title. The Indians opened the conference season on the road against perennial contender Plainfield North and beat the Tigers handily, 25-10, 25-13. “You never know the first conference game out, what it is going to look like,” Minooka coach Chris Hoelscher said. “We came out and took charge right away. We had a lot of aces and we have struggled scoring with our serves. I was happy we were able to do that today.” “I think everyone played pretty consistently,” Minooka libero Kasey Schumacher said. “Everyone really focused at the line and what zone they needed to hit. We all kept our energy up.” After breezing through the first set, North was able to put a couple runs together and cut Minooka’s lead to 13-11 in the second set, but seven straight

service points from Natalie Yard put the match away. “Our magic number is three,” Hoelscher said. “We never want to get up more than three points in a row.We had a couple hiccups in there in the second set, but for the most part if we lost the ball, we got a side out and got it back.” Skyler Day finished the night with six kills and five digs, Schumacher totaled six digs, Kelli Holstine had seven assists and Yard added 10 service points. “Everyone did their part,” Yard said. “The focus was the main thing. Everyone stayed positive and confident.” Overall the Indians have gotten off to a solid start to the season, despite a three-set loss to Plainfield East in their second SPC game. “We are (5-4),” Hoelscher said. “It started off tough. We lost to Neuqua in a three-set match. We played a lot better against JCA, but lost in two sets. We just came back from Edwardsville, which was a new tournament

for us, and went 4-1 there and took third place. And then we started off conference play with a win.” Those tough opponents should help Minooka, especially if it gets back into sectional play as it has had to face the southern Illinois schools in recent years. “Playing an easy school to get a win doesn’t make you better,” Hoelscher stated. “You have to play the best to get better. We went down to see those teams we normally wouldn’t see (except for sectionals). There’s nothing like playing a team to really get a feel for what they are like.” Even without start Division I recruit Stacy Perinar this year, the Indians are still a team to be reckoned with. “By having those girls in the program, the girls are able to see what that looks like,” Hoelscher said. “It gives them a goal of someday being that kid. We were lucky that Stacy Perinar was just a great kid and she made everyone in the

program feel important.” A big part of the success this year will be from a balanced attack, led by Division I recruit Schumacher. “Every position is pretty equal,” Schumacher said. “We are all good.”

“It is a team effort this year,” Yard added. “Last year we had one person stand out above everybody, but this year everyone is chipping in to do their part and it is working out.” staylor@buglenewspapers.com

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

THE BUGLE/SENTINEL SEPTEMBER 12, 2012

When dumbing it down is smart 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 6year-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.

Absentee voters don’t need to provide an excuse or reason why they cannot make it to the polls on Nov. 6 and only need to fill out an application and submit it at an early voting site. Any eligible DuPage County registered voter may vote absentee prior to Election Day, either “by mail” or “in-person”. A qualified registered voter

may vote via an absentee ballot without stating a reason for voting absentee. Absentee voting starts approximately forty days prior to the election and the last day a voter can

have a ballot mailed to them is 5 days prior to the election. Also, absentee ballots must be postmarked by the day before the election in order to be counted. People can also vote in person by going to the office of the DuPage County Election Commission where they can complete an absentee ballot application and vote ballot. Additionally, DuPage County registered voters may vote early at any DuPage County Early Voting site located throughout the county. Remember, an early voter is not required to state a reason for voting early and only needs to drop by an early voting site and present a valid

government issued photo ID card. Election workers verify the voter’s registration status through a central database at the DuPage County Election Commission. Once validated, the database is updated to prevent the voter from voting at another location. Then the voter is allowed to cast a ballot using an ATM-like touch screen device. Your early vote will be tabulated once the polls close on Election Day. And remember, once an early vote has been cast, the vote is final. The voter may not go to the polling place on election day to change a vote. ahernandez@buglenewspapers.com

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

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.
