Wife: Shooting was unintentional Murder suspect’s spouse testifies at his trial over death of Prairie Grove man By SARAH SUTSCHEK ssutschek@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – Prosecutors rested their case Wednesday after calling a murder suspect’s wife, who said that her husband pimped her out on the Internet, but didn’t mean

to kill the man who answered an ad for sex with her. Timothy S. Smith, 28, is charged with first-degree murder in connection with the May 28, 2011, shooting of Kurt Milliman, 48, of Prairie Grove, a former courthouse security officer and Island

Lake bar owner. Forced to testify after prosecutors granted her immunity in her own case for whatever she said on the stand, Kimberly A. Smith, 30, said that it was her husband’s idea for her to have sex with men for money.

Over about six months, she had sex with about 50 men, Kimberly Smith said. The night of the shooting, Kimberly Smith said, she hadn’t been aware that Milliman would be coming to the couple’s home on Doty Road, but her husband “said basi-

cally to get it done so we could go out.” Kimberly Smith, who was about two months pregnant at the time, said she very briefly had sex with Milliman before stopping.

Eyes and ears of community Neighborhood watch groups help police enforcement By JANE HUH jhuh@shawmedia.com MARENGO – Sometime in December, police received a call reporting suspicious activity. By happenstance, a Marengo police officer was stationed nearby and quickly arrived at the scene. It turned out that a group of juveniles were “going through cars,” attempting to find unlocked vehicles to burglarize, Marengo Police Chief Joseph Hallman said. A neighborhood watch group volunteer made the call. The incident illustrated how neighborhood watch groups can be a vital community resource and play a significant role in preventing criminal activ-

ity, Hallman said. “We can’t be at every place at once, so it allows us to do our jobs better,” he said. Across the nation, there are at least 25,000 neighborhood watch groups, according to USAonWatch, a program founded by the National Sheriffs’ Association. At the same time, reports of suspicious activity can turn out to be false. Hallman recalls a time when neighbors reported an individual going in and out of a house that had been vacant for some time. The “suspicious” individual turned out to be the Realtor for the property. Despite the false alarm, Hallman said he would

rather see watchful residents follow their instincts and contact police. “If something’s not right and they make a call, we’d rather have it be an embarrassing situation, a wrong call, than for them to not call when there’s a criminal activity going on,” he said. Marengo police work alongside two active neighborhood watch groups in the Brookside Meadows and Maple Farms subdivisions. The groups formed about a year ago, largely in response to a string of residential burglaries and thefts that hit Marengo and surrounding areas last summer.

SPRINGFIELD – The top Illinois House Republican and the Democrats’ pension point person proposed another solution Wednesday to the state’s public retirement system debacle, one that signals the GOP’s first concession toward shifting teachers’ pension costs to local school districts. Minority Leader Tom Cross of Oswego and Rep. Elaine Nekritz, a Northbrook Democrat, suggested moving the state out of funding retirement for schoolteachers and university employees, maintaining defined-benefit accounts supplemented by a 401(k)-style, defined-contribution system. If signed into law, the idea would reduce the state’s annual contribution to five employee pension accounts by $2 billion, reduce the $96 billion funding shortfall by 30 percent, and reduce the deficit within three decades, according to Cross and Nekritz, who were joined by about a dozen other representatives and senators at a news conference outside the House chamber. The pitch was made on the eve of a House session scheduled by House Speaker Michael Madigan, D-Chicago, to allow open floor debate on four pension ideas. They include elimination of pension cost-of-living increases, an apparently extreme measure that Madigan put forth as a serious potential remedy because “there’s a huge problem,” spokesman Steve Brown said.

Effort for Ellis falls flat WOODSTOCK – Two members of a McHenry County Board committee made a failed last-ditch effort Wednesday to keep embattled McHenry County Mental Health Board President Lee Ellis from losing his seat. The Public Health and Human Services Committee rejected, 2-5, a bid by members Anna May Miller, R-Cary, and Mary McCann, R-Woodstock, to appoint Ellis to a one-year unexpired term. The committee instead stuck by its original plan – and original vote earlier this month – to reject Ellis’ reappointment in favor of new blood. Wednesday’s vote was a do-over for the most part. The committee first made the recommendations Feb. 15 on a 6-0 vote, with County Board approval scheduled for its meeting four days later.

GENERAL INFORMATION: 815-459-4040

Retire social issues and fix pensions Speak now or forever hold the piece you intend to pack. Illinoisans have been held captive by matters that don’t much affect most of them, and we should expect that trend to continue for at least several more weeks. Never mind pension debt and the budget crisis that impacts each and every state resident from gay bridegrooms to wannabe cowboys. Appreciating that there are many people who are passionate about those issues, they simply don’t directly impact the vast majority of people, even if some have strong views one way or the other. As a typical suburban schlub, I happen to be happily married to a woman (who is not a schlub), and the only thing I’m likely to brandish when trouble brews is a smartphone. My hope is that this marriage will work for the long haul and that I’ll never need to consider marrying a guy. As I’ve told my gay friends,

8LOTTERY

VIEWS Kevin Lyons I don’t possess any particular cultural talents that would benefit other members of their affiliation, so I’m not expecting any recruitment letters. Then there’s the concealed-carry issue. Again, I have no dog in this fight. No incidents at Little League, Sunday church services or trips to the Super Walmart have left me with the impression that I might need to exchange lead with an evil cattle ranch owner or psychotic gangster on any given day. In the event that a concealed-carry law passes, I’ll continue to live dangerously, trusting in the police and the citizen heroes who navigated the bureaucracy well enough to get a permit and a snazzy shoulder holster. What would be better for Illinois-

ans is if legislators put both of these matters behind them and got back to the business of state government. Whether you morally support gay marriage or not, the majority of Americans do. A marriage certificate is nothing more than a government document that entitles a couple to the same benefits and rights that other married couples have. Religion shouldn’t enter into it. Your church doesn’t have to like gay marriage, sanction it, bless it or even acknowledge it. You don’t have to pick anything from the china pattern on the registry and are free to toss the RSVP envelope in the trash in protest although it will still be considered bad form regardless of sexual orientation. As for concealed carry, 49 states already have it. Illinois is better at virtually nothing (Blackhawks hockey notwithstanding) than the rest of the country. What makes us think we

have some measure of enlightenment when it comes to this? Some law-abiding gun owners who already have been following current gun laws will apply for permits when a law is finally passed. The real dangerous criminal will continue to disregard any law on the books or even in discussion. So please, vote on these issues and move on. It’s not that they’re of no importance, but they’re distracting from the critical issue of a public pension debt of around $90 billion that is financially crippling this state. Illinois Democratic leaders won’t be able to carry their concealed marriage with public employee unions under a veil of social issues forever.

8WATER COOLER Tumbleweeds invade West Texas home MIDLAND, Texas – A brutal storm system that brought 19 inches of snow to some areas of West Texas has delivered something entirely different to one homeowner. Winds in excess of 60 mph that accompanied Monday’s blizzard pushed hundreds of tumbleweeds against a Midland home. KWES-TV of Odessa and Midland reported one side of Josh Pitman’s home is obscured by tumbleweeds stacked one atop the other, blocking some doorways. Pitman said he recently tore down a fence that would have protected his home from the rambling weeds. In his words, “Most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen.”

Pope legacy: Teacher who returned to church roots By NICOLE WINFIELD The Associated Press VATICAN CITY – On Monday, April 4, 2005, a priest walked up to the Renaissance palazzo housing the Vatican’s doctrine department and asked the doorman to call the official in charge: It was the first day of business after Pope John Paul II had died, and the cleric wanted to get back to work. The office’s No. 2, Archbishop Angelo Amato, answered the phone and was stunned: This was no ordinary priest. It was Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, his boss, who under the Vatican’s arcane rules had technically lost his job when John Paul died. “It tells me of the great hu-

mility of the man, the great sense of duty, but also the great awareness that we are here to do a job,” said Bishop Charles Scicluna, who worked with Ratzinger before he became Pope Benedict XVI, inside the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. In resigning, Scicluna said, Benedict is showing the same sense of humility, duty and service as he did after the Catholic Church lost its last pope. “He has done his job.” When Benedict flies off into retirement by helicopter today, he will leave behind a church in crisis – one beset by sex scandal, internal divisions and dwindling numbers. But the pope can count on a solid legacy: While his very

resignation was his most significant act, Benedict – in a quieter way – also set the church back on a conservative, tradition-minded path. He was guided by the firm conviction that many of the ills afflicting the church could be traced to a misreading of the reforms of the Second Vatican Council. He insisted that the 196265 meetings that brought the church into the modern era were not a radical break from the past, as portrayed by many liberals, but rather a continuation of the best traditions of the 2,000-year-old church. Benedict was the teacher pope, a theology professor who turned his Wednesday general audiences into master classes about the Catholic faith and the history, saints

As budget cuts loom, is a shutdown next? By ANDREW TAYLOR The Associated Press WASHINGTON – With big, automatic budget cuts about to kick in, House Republicans are turning to mapping strategy for the next showdown just a month away, when a government shutdown instead of just a slowdown will be at stake. Both topics are sure to come up at the White House meeting Friday between President Barack Obama and top congressional leaders, including Republican House Speaker John Boehner. A breakthrough on replacing or easing the imminent across-the-board spending cuts still seems unlikely at the first face-to-face discussion between Obama and Republican leaders this year. To no one’s surprise, even as a dysfunctional Washington appears incapable of averting a crisis over economy-rat-

tling spending cuts, it may be lurching toward another over a possible shutdown. Republicans are planning for a vote next week on a bill to fund the day-to-day operations of the government through the Sept. 30 end of the 2013 fiscal year – while keeping in place the new $85 billion in cuts of 5 percent to domestic agencies and 8 percent to the military. The need to keep the government’s doors open and lights on – or else suffer the first government shutdown since 1996 – requires the GOPdominated House and the Democratic-controlled Senate to agree. Right now they hardly see eye to eye. The House GOP plan, unveiled to the rank and file on Wednesday, would award the Pentagon and the Veterans Administration with their line-by-line budgets, for a

more-targeted rather than indiscriminate batch of military cuts, but would deny domestic agencies the same treatment. And that has whipped up opposition from veteran Democratic senators on the Appropriations Committee. Domestic agencies would see their budgets frozen almost exactly as they are, which would mean no money for new initiatives such as cybersecurity or for routine increases for programs such as low-income housing. “We’re not going to do that,” said Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa. “Of course not.” Any agreement needs to pass through a gantlet of House tea party conservatives intent on preserving the across-theboard cuts and Senate Democrats pressing for action on domestic initiatives, even at the risk of creating a foot-tall catchall spending bill.

Ill. race shows Bloomberg clout By SOPHIA TAREEN The Associated Press CHICAGO – In the race to replace former Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s super PAC followed a simple strategy: Choose a strong anti-gun candidate, attack rivals supported by the National Rifle Association and add in $2.2 million in resources. It worked. Bloomberg’s candidate, former Illinois lawmaker Robin Kelly, sailed past more than a dozen rivals to win the Democratic primary in this Chicago-area district where guns became the main issue. Bloomberg’s super PAC, Independence USA, boasted Wednesday that the race would be its template for future elections. But political

experts and public officials were skeptical if the effort can be replicated elsewhere. “That is a harbinger of what is to come,” said Bloomberg pollster Doug Schoen, who worked previously for President Bill Clinton. “While Chicago may not be the rest of the country, I have been at this 35 years, and I’ve yet to find an elected official who does not look at an election like this and sit up and take notice.” Because the district is overwhelmingly Democratic, Kelly is widely expected to win the April 9 special election. Her victory generated buzz far beyond the city. Bloomberg said her win showed the public had spoken. Vice President Joe Biden said the victory sent

an anti-gun message, and congressmen worried about the repercussions. Bloomberg is perhaps the single most influential figure in the national gun debate, beyond even President Barack Obama and Biden, because of his deep pockets. The NRA’s political action committee raised $1.1 million last month, a trivial amount compared with the billions that Bloomberg has at his disposal. “The voters of this congressional district understood that they and their children and grandchildren are at risk with guns on the streets,” Bloomberg said Wednesday in Washington after meeting with the vice president to discuss efforts to curb gun violence.

8NATION BRIEFS Kids stranded at school overnight by snow DENVER – A snowstorm moving across the Midwest forced about 60 students to spend the night at their Colorado school when a state highway was closed due to dangerous conditions that left some drivers stranded in their cars, as winter weather continued to cause problems for a wide swath of the country. Tens of thousands remained without power in Michigan, while adverse conditions continued to disrupt flights at Chicago’s O’Hare Airport. In eastern Wisconsin, hundreds of vehicles were stranded or ended up in crashes as a winter

storm made travel dangerous. And in Kansas, the latest snowstorm to hit the state was being blamed for six deaths. According to the air traffic tracking website FlightAware. com, about 100 flights in and out of Chicago’s airports were canceled for Wednesday. Flights into O’Hare International Airport were delayed an average of about an hour.

Tycoon proposes to send couple around Mars WASHINGTON – In less than five years, a married couple could be on their way toward Mars in an audacious but bare-bones private mission that would slingshot them around

the red planet, under a plan announced Wednesday by a financial tycoon and his team. The voyage to Mars and back would be a cosmic no-frills flight that would take the husband-and-wife astronauts as close as 100 miles to the planet, but it would also mean being cooped up for 16 months in a cramped space capsule half the size of an RV. The private, nonprofit project, called Inspiration Mars, will get money from multimillionaire investment consultant Dennis Tito, the first space tourist. The team would not say how much the overall flight would cost, but outsiders put it at more than $1 billion.

Justices skeptical of voting rights law By MARK SHERMAN The Associated Press WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court’s conservative justices voiced deep skepticism Wednesday about a section of a landmark civil rights law that has helped millions of Americans exercise their right to vote. In an ominous note for supporters of the key provision of the Voting Rights Act, Justice Anthony Kennedy both acknowledged the measure’s vital role in fighting discrimination and suggested that other important laws in U.S. history had run their course. “Times change,” Kennedy said during the fast-paced, 70-minute argument. Kennedy’s views are likely to prevail on the closely divided court, and he tends to side with his more conservative colleagues on matters of race. The court’s liberals and conservatives engaged in a sometimes tense back-andforth over whether there is an ongoing need in 2013 for the part of the voting rights law that requires states with a history of discrimination, mainly in the Deep South, to get approval before making changes in the way elections are held. Justice Antonin Scalia called the law a “perpetuation

of racial entitlement.” Chief Justice John Roberts, a vocal skeptic of the use of race in all areas of public life, cited a variety of statistics that showed starker racial disparities in some aspects of voting in Massachusetts than in Mississippi. Then he asked the government’s top Supreme Court lawyer whether the Obama administration thinks “the citizens in the South are more racist than citizens in the North?” The answer from Solicitor General Donald Verrilli was no. The question, and others like it from the conservative justices, largely echoed the doubts they first expressed four years ago in a similar case that ended without resolving the constitutionality of the latest renewal of the voting rights law, in 2006. They questioned whether there remain appreciable differences between the locations covered by the law and those that are not. They also wondered whether there was any end in sight for a provision that intrudes on states’ rights to conduct elections and which was regarded as an emergency response to decades of statesponsored discrimination in voting, despite the Fifteenth Amendment’s guarantee of the vote for black Americans.

8BRIEFS U.S., Europe move to expand role in Syria ROME – The United States and some European allies are edging closer to direct involvement in Syria’s civil war with plans to deliver meals, medical kits and other forms of nonlethal assistance to the rebels battling President Bashar Assad. The U.S., Britain, France and Italy aren’t planning to supply the Free Syrian Army with weapons or ammunition. Moves are afoot to boost the size and scope of their aid to the political and military opposition. Such decisions could be announced as early as today at an international conference on Syria in Rome.

Mexico plays hardball in jailing of union boss MEXICO CITY – The arrest of Mexico’s most powerful union leader echoes the hardball tactics of Mexico’s once-imperial presidency while pushing forward an education reform that Enrique Pena Nieto has made a centerpiece of his

new administration. Elba Esther Gordillo, known for flashing her Hermes handbags and heels, stood behind bars Wednesday in a grim prison in eastern Mexico City as a judge read off charges of embezzlement and organized crime. The arrest sidelined a woman who had tried to mobilize teachers to block a schools shake-up designed to end her control over hiring and firing of teachers across the country.

Database lets Britons find slave-owning ancestors LONDON – A new database launched Wednesday lets Britons curious about their family history uncover some potentially uncomfortable information – whether their ancestors owned slaves. Researchers at University College London spent three years compiling a searchable listing of thousands of people who received compensation for loss of their “possessions” when slave ownership was outlawed by Britain in 1833.

Senate president embraces idea • PENSIONS Continued from page A1 “Everything’s serious,” said Brown, “and it’s just, keep working on the issue until we can find a majority of the Legislature willing to pass a bill and send it to the governor.” As for the Cross-Nekritz offer, Brown said Madigan was encouraged by the first indication by Cross that he would support the so-called “cost shift,” transferring from state taxpayers to local boards of education the employer portion of pensions for schoolteachers – who Madigan notes are “nonstate employees.” Senate President John Cullerton embraced the CrossNekritz idea but will also continue pursuing a proposal that he believes is constitutional because it offers annuitants a choice of post-career benefits, a spokeswoman for the Chi-

cago Democrat said. That concerns Nekritz, who doesn’t believe that Cullerton’s ideas save enough money. A coalition of public-employee unions called “We are One Illinois” rejected the new twist put on Nekritz’s idea as a proposal that “defies the Constitution and diminishes benefits unilaterally.” Cross and Nekritz trumpeted their solution and pointed to its bipartisan, bicameral support – Senate Republican Sue Rezin of Morris attended the announcement, along with Sen. Daniel Biss, an Evanston Democrat who as a House member last fall worked with Nekritz on the initial idea. “Thirty years from now, if you’re retired, and live to 90, you will have a pension check coming in the mail, and this thing will be solved in 30 years, solid, 100 percent,” said Rep. Darlene Senger, a Naperville Republican.

Father of Newtown victim: Ban assault weapons The ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON – After weeks of arguing constitutional fine points and citing rival statistics, senators wrangling over gun control saw and heard the anguish of a bereft father. Neil Heslin, whose 6-year-old son, Jesse, was among those cut down at a Connecticut elementary school in December, asked the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday to ban assault weapons like the one that killed his child. “I’m not here for the sympathy or the pat on the back,” Heslin, a 50-year-old construction worker, told the senators. “I’m here to speak up for my son.” At his side were photos: of his son as a baby, of them both taken on Father’s Day, six months before Jesse was among 20 first-graders and six administrators killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. That massacre has hoisted gun control

The hearing’s focus was legislation by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., to ban assault weapons and ammunition magazines carrying more

than 10 rounds. A Bushmaster assault weapon was used at Newtown by the attacker, Adam Lanza, whose body was found with 30-round magazines. Feinstein said such a firearm “tears peoples’ bodies

apart. I don’t know why as a matter of public policy we can’t say they don’t belong.’” Republicans had several answers. They argued her proposal would violate the Second Amendment’s right to bear arms and take firearms from law-abiding citizens, and said current laws aimed at keeping guns from criminals are not fully enforced. “The best way to prevent crazy people” from getting firearms is to better enforce the existing federal background check system, said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. That system is designed to prevent criminals, people with mental problems and others from obtaining guns. It only applies to weapons sold by federally licensed dealers, and expanding that system to almost all gun transactions is the central proposal in President Barack Obama’s package of gun restrictions he unveiled last month, along with bans on assault weapons and large-capacity magazines.

Why Haven’t Neuropathy Suffers Been Told These Facts? Do you have any of the following symptoms? • Pins and needles feeling • Numbness in the hands or feet • Tingling or burning sensations • Weakness in the arms or legs • Sharp shooting or burning pains

If so, you may have a condition called peripheral neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy, or “nerve damage,” is one of the most chronic conditions in the U.S., affecting over 20 million Americans. Neuropathy results from injury to the nerves in the arms and legs.This disrupts the body’s ability to communicate with its muscles, organs and tissues. Most people don’t recognize neuropathy’s symptoms, which are: • Pins and needles feeling • Numbness in the hands or feet • Tingling or burning sensations • Weakness in the arms or legs • Sharp shooting or burning pains These annoying problems may come and go...interrupt your sleep...or even make your arm or legs feel weak at times. But even if you’ve had neuropathy symptoms for a while, there are 3 common myths I often see with this condition.

What Other Professionals are saying about this program.

Myth #1: Thinking More Pills Are The Only Solution A common treatment for many nerve problems is the ‘take some pills and wait and see’ method. While this may be necessary for temporary relief of severe symptoms, using them long term is no way to live. Some of the more common drugs given include pain pills, anti-seizure mediations, and anti-depressants -- all of which have serious side effects. Why not look for a drugless solution instead of just covering over the pain?

”The ReBuilder has helped our patients who have painful side effects from chemotherapy neuropathy so much...” -Cancer Treatment Centers of America. ”Previously, treating peripheral neuropathy patients hasn’t been really successful...but I’ve never seen resolutions like we’re seeing in these cases.” John P.

Closing arguments are expected today McHenry County Conservation District • TRIAL Continued from page A1 “I didn’t want to continue doing what I was doing,” she said. “I didn’t feel comfortable.” There was no argument, but Milliman looked aggravated, Kimberly Smith said. After using the bathroom, Milliman tried to hand her money to continue, but she said she wanted him to leave. While by the front door, he grabbed her arm and pulled her back, she said, also slapping her in the face. Kimberly Smith said she asked Milliman to get his hands off of her, and that’s when her husband came around the corner. “He said, ‘Get your hands off my wife,’ ” Kimberly Smith said. “And then what happened?” McHenry County Assistant State’s Attorney Patrick Kenneally asked. “The gun went off,” she said.

Nothing was done to resolve the situation without resorting to deadly violence, Kimberly Smith said. “He said he didn’t mean it and the gun just went off and I had to help him,” she said. In a videotaped interrogation that had been shown to jurors earlier in the day, Timothy Smith insisted that he shot Milliman while defending his wife. Timothy Smith initially told police that he didn’t know why Milliman was in his home on Doty Road near Woodstock, and that Kimberly Smith called him in a panic. But he eventually admitted that he was in the home the entire time. Timothy Smith said he was embarrassed that they had turned to prostitution to make money, with his wife sometimes keeping the cash and other times putting it in a jar to save for whatever they needed. Timothy Smith said that he worked hard, but earned $12 an hour. “This is something we both agreed to do to help each other

Appointments will go before full County Board on Tuesday • ELLIS Continued from page A1 But County Board Chairwoman Tina Hill, R-Woodstock, sent almost all recommendations for appointments back to their respective committees out of concerns that the committees’ agendas did not fully comply with new Illinois Open Meetings Act requirements. The appointments – newcomers Robert Routzahn, Heather Murgatroyd and Connie Smith for the threeyear terms and incumbent Connee Meschini for the oneyear term – will go before the full County Board on Tuesday morning. The full terms advanced on 7-0 votes, while Meschini squeaked by on a 4-3 vote, thanks to the attendance of a previously absent member who broke a 3-3 tie. Critics in recent years have accused the Mental Health Board of spending too much on administration and overhead instead of giving the money to agencies helping the mentally ill and developmentally disabled. The Mental Health Board now employs more than 30 people – down from almost 50 last year – and is paying back $3 million in economic stimulus bonds it spent to almost quadruple the size of its Crystal Lake headquarters. While the Mental Health Board doled out $8.7 million last year to client agencies, one-third of its 2012 revenues, or more than $4.4 million, stayed internal, according to year-end fund utilization reports. More than half of that, or about $2.375 million, was allocated to line items for administrative costs. Miller said that she was “very impressed” by Ellis during his interview – he was the first of a dozen candidates the committee interviewed over two days. While Miller and McCann were part of the 6-0 majority earlier this month, both said they backed giving a seat to Ellis during the process by which committee members narrowed down the field. “I think he has done an excellent job in leading the Mental Health Board,” Miller said. However, the majority soundly disagreed with keeping him. “I think there needs to be a new leaf, a change in the Mental Health Board, a fresh set of eyes at the table so we can move forward,” said Paula Yensen, D-Lake in the Hills. Yensen has held the County Board’s voting seat on the Mental Health Board since January. County Board members John Hammerand, R-Wonder Lake, and Michael Walkup, RCrystal Lake, said there has been too much complaining in recent years from the Mental Health Board’s critics, which include client agencies that get funding, to ignore. “I don’t think we can take

a strong enough action now to bring new focus onto the [Mental Health] Board,” Hammerand said. Walkup also said he is suspicious of the “very strong pushback” received from the Mental Health Board since it became apparent that Ellis was in danger of losing his unpaid seat. Ellis wrote a Northwest Herald guest column last month critical of its coverage, has reached out to at least one County Board member regarding his potential vote, and has filed a Freedom of Information Act request for documents related to the committee’s Feb. 15 deliberations. Mental Health Board Interim Executive Director Todd Schroll, who is a candidate for the full-time job, emailed committee members during the interview process to challenge some of the numbers presented by committee Chairwoman Donna Kurtz, and the board last week delivered large binders of information to all 24 County Board members. Also, a board member of the Mental Health Board’s fundraising arm emailed service providers last week imploring them to pressure county elected officials to keep Ellis. “Methinks thou doth protest too much,” Walkup said. Hammerand, who was absent from the interview process earlier this month, broke a tie to pick Meschini for the one-year term over Mary Donner, a former member of the County Board who for four years held its voting seat on the Mental Health Board. Hammerand said he heads south each winter for medical reasons because he has trouble breathing in cold weather. He told his fellow committee members that he listened to all nine hours of interviews and deliberations in the days before Wednesday’s vote. Hammerand sided with Kurtz, Sandra Fay Salgado and Walkup in voting for Meschini – Miller, McCann and Yensen voted for Donner. While Meschini’s supporters said she has asked tough questions on the Mental Health Board, Donner’s supporters said her votes do not match up with her questioning. Conversely, Meschini’s supporters said that Donner would not provide the independent and skeptical voice the Mental Health Board needs. The appointments take effect immediately should the County Board approve them Tuesday. Board members cannot add Ellis or anyone else, but can only give an up-ordown vote and send rejected appointments back to committee. Board rules give the chairwoman the ability prior to a meeting to add names, but Hill said Wednesday afternoon that she has no intention of doing so. “I think the committee did their due diligence, and I will support the committee process,” Hill said.

out,” he said. “It’s embarrassing. ... I’m a better man than that.” Timothy Smith said that Milliman was threatening his wife, and he heard her tell Milliman to get his hands off of her. “I gave him fair notice and he still didn’t leave or move,” Timothy Smith said. “The guy’s huge.” The forensic pathologist who performed Milliman’s autopsy said Milliman was 6 feet 6 inches tall and weighed 378 pounds. He was shot once in the back, with the bullet entering near his right shoulder blade and traveling across the body, lodging near the left collarbone. “I’m not a killer. I’m not a murderer,” Timothy Smith said. “I’m a guy who protects his family at all costs.” Kimberly Smith has been charged with several offenses including prostitution, but not murder. Her case is pending. Closing arguments in Timothy Smith’s trial are expected today.

is recruiting volunteers for visiting sites • WATCH Continued from page A1 “It galvanized enough people’s interest to at least start a dialogue to create these,” Hallman said. “We’re going to keep going, and generate some more [watch groups].” The police department offers volunteer watch groups general guidelines and shares information about typical crimes in the area and other safety ideas. Neighborhood watch groups do not “promote vigilantism,” nor should they encourage confrontations, Hallman said. Although it’s “hard to quantify” the groups’ criminal deterrent effect, volunteers are at least aware of their surroundings and their neighbors, Hallman said. “It raises awareness, and you get to meet your neighbors, which we don’t quite do as much as we used to,” he

said. Neighborhood Watch/ Neighbors Helping Neighbors has been in Huntley’s Sun City community for nearly 10 years. The group started off as a communication resource for the retirement community, a “vehicle to Sun City residents to receive and send information,” said Ken Anderson, group president. Sun City’s group is more comprehensive than an average neighborhood watch. Communication regarding neighborhood safety gets passed from the Huntley Police Department to the group’s 31 coordinators, then down to 300 block captains and finally to 5,200 households. Neighbors Helping Neighbors works to offer a range of information, including advice on how to install a wireless motion detection system and the best ways to use GPS

devices, “along with readiness to look and see if there’s a suspicious individual or a suspicious car down the street,” Anderson said. Watch groups aren’t limited to residential subdivisions. The McHenry County Conservation District relies on volunteers as the extra ears and eyes for its 32 sites. Thedistrict’sSafetyWatch Education and Environmental Program (SWEEP) formed two years ago as a proactive initiative, said Wendy Kummerer, district communications manager. The district is currently recruiting interested volunteers who typically visit sites once or twice a week. Generally, volunteers would walk or drive through a site to spot safety hazards. “It could be anything from a dog being off leash to someone vandalizing the signs,” Kummerer said.

Consider it tax election One way to look at it is as the “property tax” election. We refer to the April 9 Consolidated Election that’s coming to a polling place near you. Almost all offices up for election have to do with taxing bodies that get their share of your tax dollars each year from your real estate tax bill. An exception is county governFor the record ment itself, whose representatives Candidates on the April 9 were elected in ballot will decide how to spend November. your property taxes. Don’t you If you review think you should vote? the list of governmental units on your tax bill, and compare them to a sample ballot for the April 9 election, you will see the names repeated time after time. City government. Village government. Township government. Park districts. Public library districts. School districts. Community college districts. Fire protection districts. All those governments take your tax dollars. All those governments spend your tax dollars. And many people who decide how that money will be spent will be on the April 9 ballot. Tuesday’s primary election settled some races. Sadly, only a small percentage of voters decided the primaries. The Election Day snowstorm didn’t help, but turnout almost always is light during these local elections. And that doesn’t make sense to us. It is our money these government entities are spending, after all. In order to vote in the April 9 election, you have to be registered first. Residents who are not sure of their registration status need to check with the county clerk. The last day to register is March 12 – less than two weeks away. So, think about writing a big check for your next real estate tax bill, then think of the local governments who will be spending your money. Then decide whether you will vote.

8IT’S YOUR WRITE Chicago No. 1 To the Editor: In 2012, Chicago was found to be the bed bug capital of America. That’s No. 1. Also in 2012, Chicago had more than 500 gun murders to be No. 1 in gun murders in America. On Feb. 1, it was reported on network TV that Chicago had 54 gun-related murders in January 2013. President Barack Obama, that’s a good job of defending your hometown’s title. I’ll bet Chicago is No. 1 next year, both in bed bugs and murders. Could there be a connection between bed bugs and gun murders?

BP’s general counsel said recently that he’s confident that the company will escape the harshest level of civil penalties for the massive 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. It’s not surprising that he would argue against the notion that the oil giant was grossly negligent for the spill, which poured 4.1 million barrels of oil into the Gulf. The company hopes to keep its liability from being quadrupled under the Clean Water Act, which is what a finding of gross negligence would trigger. The difference is huge: $4.5 billion for simple negligence or more than $17 billion for gross negligence. It is important to remember what led to the Deepwater Horizon disaster and the company’s spotty track record on safety. The federal government’s most conclusive report on the Deepwater Horizon explosion – which left 11 men dead – found that BP’s failure to assess the risks of its Macondo well and the company’s drive to cut corners at the expense of safety were the main causes.

Federal safety net

Huntley

To the Editor: Now the only way that job shortages can be overcome is to federally subsidize income and create federal safety nets for states and local human services, such as public safety, state debt, public pensions and Medicare. Lowered taxes for the top 400 billionaires and one-fifth richest Americans failed to improve purchasing power necessary for jobs these past 12 years, so federalize a safety net instead. Increased vital social spending, and repaying the earned Social Security and public pensions of the majority would raise all society with purchasing power, adding jobs. The New Deal boosted the economy’s safety net. Ninety-six percent of all Americans have benefited directly from government welfare, notably through tax breaks on mortgages

On behalf of the members of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation in McHenry, long a champion of full equality in marriage based on our religious principles of the respect for the inherent worth and dignity of every person, I urge you to remember that there is also a strong and growing support for this across a wide religious spectrum. It’s your turn to speak up. Simple justice demands it.

To the Editor: I see newspapers of all political persuasions across Illinois have now endorsed the marriage equality legislation that recently passed the Illinois Senate and is up for consideration in the House. Publications include the Chicago Sun-Times, Chicago Tribune, Daily Herald, Pioneer Press, Southtown Star, St. Louis Post Dispatch, Journal Register (Springfield), and Peoria Journal Star. Where is the Northwest Herald? Don’t you think it is time for your Editorial Board to catch up with the irreversible tide of history? Polling now clearly shows marriage equality is supported by a majority of Illinois citizens, and adamantly opposed by only 29

for the middle class, but corporations receive more government subsides (welfare), i.e. coal, nuclear, oil, airline industries. Local and state government typically are in debt, so federal government, expanding its social spending to the majority, must federalize state government’s social spending, including mental health and livable income. Obama’s health care reform seeks federalizing of the poor into Medicaid if all state governors and legislatures agree, whereupon states get all health bills paid for three years, 90 percent thereafter. The federal government can borrow. Its interest rate is low, unlike state governments. Federalize social spending for the majority to expand economy for all. Bernice Russell Crystal Lake

racy. After all, was it not a printed pamphlet, “Common Sense,” that spurred this nation to rise up and declare its independence? The Northwest Herald needs to take greater pride in this tradition, as was evidenced last week when a retraction identified the primary subject of its story on seasonal affect disorder was making the whole thing up. It did get in the paper, though. Later, in a story about poverty in Illinois, the Northwest Herald printed that 1.9 million Illinoisans, a reported one-third of our state population, was below the poverty line. In actuality Illinois has almost 13 million residents, which makes that more like 14 percent. And Thursday, on the cover of the Planit Play, the cover read, “Comedian puts his career in ‘Top Gear,’ visits Volo Saturday.” Reading the article inside, however, you see that Adam Ferrara appeared on Feb. 24, which is Sunday, not Saturday.

Michelle Obama following 2nd-term trend for first ladies WASHINGTON – If second-term presidents feel liberated by re-election to pursue bolder agendas, first ladies often become more comfortable to be their own person. Witness Laura Bush, who in her husband’s second term discovered that she, too, had a voice and a bully pulpit. Seemingly overnight, she transformed herself from librarian to liberator, becoming a voice for oppressed women – from advocating for Burma’s Aung San Suu Kyi, the democratic leader then under house arrest, to spearheading a women’s health movement across the Middle East. Likewise, it appears that Michelle Obama has begun to break out. Though she long ago established herself as a health-and-fitness mom in chief, she had until recently been careful to stay well within the lines of traditional first lady. Obviously accomplished in her own right, she spent the past four years fashioning an image of good wife and mother to counter early impressions of her as politically ambitious

and, to certain of her critics, angry. Whatever she was then, she is something else now. In her second term, Michelle Obama has come out with, well, a bang! She isn’t just breaking the mold; she’s shattering the good china. The Madonna of first ladies, she is emerging as an iconoclastic, self-reinventing woman who clearly doesn’t mind shaking the firmament. It seems clear that no one, including the president, tells the first lady what to do. “She always looks good” was Barack Obama’s wise response when asked how he liked his wife’s new bangs. Studies have confirmed what all successfully married men know: The correct answer to any question is “Yes, dear.” The bangs were a clue that Michelle was evacuating the cocoon. Analyzing her bangs may seem a silly pastime – but only if you know nothing about women. When a woman changes her hair – especially as dramatically as the first lady did – something is up. Those aren’t bangs covering

VIEWS Kathleen Parker Michelle Obama’s eyebrows. Those are butterfly wings. Observe. The first lady completely changed her appearance on the eve of her husband’s second inauguration. Now why would she do that? She jokingly has said that her bangs were her midlife crisis. Cute answer, but it’s clearly more than that. Hair is the frame we choose for the portrait we project to the world. Hair conveys messages we don’t even consciously recognize. Who knew that Michelle Obama harbored an inner Gidget? Cute, fun-loving, perky were not adjectives that sprang to mind when Michelle became a household word four years ago. That was then. Michelle Obama obviously has decided to have some fun. Thus, recently, she joined Jimmy Fallon in a viral pas de deux titled,

8THE FIRST AMENDMENT

“The Evolution of Mom Dancing.” Sunday night she crashed the biggest party on television – the Academy Awards – to announce the best picture winner. Appearing remotely on a gargantuan screen like a holographic Princess Leia, she was a glimmering, spaghetti-strapped goddess beaming in to bestow the grand prize – Herself – on the adoring audience that helped put her husband in office. Reactions have been mixed from the moment Jack Nicholson introduced her: Should she have done it? Is it too frivolous in these dire times for the first lady, bedecked in sequined splendor, to be participating in such self-congratulatory frivolity? Too much exposure? Too much ... too much? As usual, the responses tend to break down along party lines. We have such conflicting feelings about first wives in an era when women do it all, including, eventually, becoming president. We want our first lady to be first a lady – a delicate balance between enjoying

one’s attractiveness without being too sexy. Michelle’s sleeveless toned arms have kept us riveted for four years. We want our first ladies to be intelligent but not aggressively so. Supportive but not fawning. Politic but not political. We mostly want them to not embarrass us – and this will be the same for the first husband when he arrives. To most of the country, Michelle has passed muster thus far. Her youthful health and fitness are inspiring – and she can grab and hold an audience as few others. She and the camera adore each other, though some of us miss her Jackie Kennedy period – the black Armani sheath with a double strand of pearls, hair brushed back to reveal her best feature – an arched, intelligent brow line. Why cover it up? The answer may be as simple as sometimes a first lady just wants to have fun. For certain, Michelle Obama is the star of her own movie.

SHERIFF CLARIFIES SOURCE OF CALLS The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office doesn’t solicit money from the public through telemarketing, Sheriff Keith Nygren clarified in a news release. Nygren’s office has been receiving questions from McHenry County residents about calls from solicitors using the sheriff’s office name. The independent Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 118, a police union drawing members from the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office, has been asking for donations through telemarketers. None of that money is distributed within the sheriff’s office or controlled by Nygren, the release said. Nygren said he wasn’t discouraging donations to the organization but wanted to bring to light its separation from the sheriff’s office. Complaints about solicitors can be made to Nygren at 815-3382144 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

2 differ on economic tactics Candidates for Cary president have background in village leadership By JOSEPH BUSTOS jbustos@shawmedia.com CARY – The race to succeed Tom Kierna as Cary’s village president features a current trustee and a former trustee. Bruce Kaplan, who was elected to the board in 2011, is facing off against Mark Kownick, who served two years on the Village Board after he was appointed in 2009 to fill a vacancy. Kierna is not running for re-election as village

president. Kaplan was part of a slate of four candidates who ran together. “I represented a fresh change in the village,” Kaplan said. “The ones that voted [for us] were interested in seeing new direction in the village, were not happy with things going on in town. “The biggest thrust of my candidacy is to develop the commercial tax base of the village,” Kaplan added. “The tax levy is a constant, it gets

much to cover the tax levy.” Kaplan, who has lived in the village for 39 years, is a real estate broker for Premier Commercial Realty. Kownick,whoownsAction Building Maintenance Corp., has lived in the village for 21 years. Kownick said the village needs to concentrate on putting retail businesses that produce sales tax in retail districts, rather than putting those that don’t in retail areas.

D-158 to replace HHS principal Middle school leader to guide expanding school By STEPHEN Di BENEDETTO sdibenedetto@shawmedia.com HUNTLEY – District 158 opted for a familiar face to replace retiring Huntley High School Principal Dave Johnson, one with the background to guide the school through future expansion, Superintendent John Burkey said. The district board recently named Marlowe Middle School Principal Scott Rowe as the successor to Johnson, who has overseen the high school for the past 17 years as it grew from 300 students in 1996 to roughly 2,400 students today. Rowe, 32, now will have the task of continuing that development, as the Huntleybased school district starts to expand the high school to house 3,000 students by 2019. Rowe has spent the past two years managing Marlowe, the district’s second-largest school, and has prior high school experience as a teacher and coach in McHenry. “We aren’t looking for any radical changes at the high school,” Burkey said. “We are looking for Scott to lead the high school and to keep the high school growing.” A team of teachers and administrators selected Rowe from a pool of nine candidates. Rowe was the only in-house candidate to interview for the job after Johnson announced his retirement in December.

Four Algonquin businesses Absentee ballots could fined for liquor violations change Nunda races By SHAWN SHINNEMAN By JOSEPH BUSTOS jbustos@shawmedia.com ALGONQUIN – Four businesses in Algonquin have been fined $2,000 each for selling alcohol to two underage people. Chipotle, BuddyZ A Chicago Pizzeria, Bangkok and Foley’s Pub all sold beer to minors during a police department check, Algonquin police said during a Liquor Commission hearing Tuesday. Each establishment had no prior violations, Deputy Chief Ed Urban said. Chipotle, BuddyZ and Foley’s Pub also were fined $500 each when their employees did not have a card during the police

check certifying that they had received Beverage Alcohol Sellers and Servers Education and Training, as required by village ordinance. Wine & Roses also is accused of failing the check, but its case was continued to a date yet to be determined. If the restaurant is found guilty, that would be its fourth violation since 2005. During the check Dec. 19, police sent two underage people into 27 establishments, 14 places that serve alcohol along with food and 13 packaged liquor stores to try to buy alcohol. BuddyZ owner Tim Scarnato said he thought the employee who served

the alcohol was BASSET certified. Scarnato said there are reminders around the restaurant and monthly meetings. “I’d like to apologize to the Liquor Commission and the citizens of the community because, as a family business, this is something we take very [seriously],” Scarnato said. “I have no excuses but to look in the mirror. This one seemed to slip through that I was allowing her to work without being BASSET certified. I was under the impression she was.” Trustee Brian Dianis

There’s a slim chance those races still could flip. Although no provisional ballots were cast, 40 absentee ballots have yet to come in, County Clerk Katherine Schultz said. If postmarked before election day, those ballots –

LAKEMOOR: LAWSUIT

D-2, with strong reserves, OKs $1.5M tax abatement

Jury: Village did not discriminate

including those without children in the district, he said. Board member Mindy Ross said her “no” vote wasn’t because she didn’t trust Oest’s recommendation but because she wanted the decision to be based on a set policy. The district does not have a maximum fund balance policy although the topic has been on the agenda at past meetings. At past meetings, Ross and the other board member who voted “no,” Matt Johnson, voiced concern about all the financial unknowns in the district’s future. They said they didn’t have enough information to feel comfortable in giving money back. That was a concern shared by many parents in the audience. A petition that circulated online and in person asked the district to wait on issuing an abatement until it had long-term plans with cost estimates. “This should show you that people are concerned,” said Ruth Burlini of Spring Grove, gesturing around the crowded library at Nippersink Middle School. Some of the speakers voiced their frustrations, asking why one of the parent-

teacher organizations had been asked to raise $1,000 for paper and cardstock when the district had so much in reserve or why improvements were only being done now when the reserves totaled $5.5 million four years ago. The public comment period for the last three months has frequently been heated, with some board members struggling to keep to the policy of nonengagement. But the policy of not answering direct questions during public comment periods and having only the board president respond to emails has frustrated some parents even more. One parent, John Bilik of Spring Grove said he didn’t understand why he couldn’t get the information he requested or at the very least, summarize for the public present at meetings what they don’t get to see. The district has increased what the public can get online over the last several years. The BoardBook section on the district website provides many of the documents and reports given to the board ahead of meetings. But the board should go further, some of its members said, and a special meeting to conduct a self-evaluation is in the works.

By EMILY K. COLEMAN ecoleman@shawmedia.com RICHMOND – Nippersink District 2 will collect $1.5 million less this year, the school board decided in a 5-2 vote Wednesday evening. The tax abatement means that the owner of a home worth $200,000 will save an estimated $269 on the next tax bill, according to board documents. District staff recommended an abatement of $1.5 million because that is about how much the surplus is expected to increase by this fiscal year, Superintendent Dan Oest. The $10.4 million the d is tr ic t h as i n r es er ve s is more than enough to cover the improvements to buildings and curriculum the district is anticipating, both plans it has hard numbers for and ones it still is developing, he said. The recommendation also takes into consideration changes being discussed by the state legislature that would shift some of the costs for the Teacher Retirement System onto local districts, Oest said. Board President Bert Irslinger’s vote weighed the goals he has as a parent and board member with his responsibility to taxpayers,

in town. Kaplan said that if someone comes to his real estate office to inquire about a property in town, his responsibility in that case would be to the property owner to see whether a deal can be made. He said the village needs to look at the incentives being offered by other communities to try to be competitive. He said some sort of salestax rebate based on what a new business generates should be considered. The village could look into reducing or eliminating permit fees for certain situations, he said, and look into whether to adjust tapon fees for connecting to utilities. Kaplan said the village’s process for approving building plans for businesses needs to be more streamlined. He said the village staff has improved, but he has heard of situations where developers have to submit plans multiple times to village engineers before they can move forward with construction. “One of the things that is hurtful to development is the time it takes to get their plans approved through the bureaucracy,” Kaplan said.

the village,” Kownick said. “I would say most developers understand that is part of doing business. ... Our business strategy has to change and adapt without giving the store away.” He said to help make the village a destination, he would like to see more franchise-type businesses, such as a Pot Bellys or Starbucks to come to town, because they would have marketing plans and are more invested in making it work. “I know too many people who drive from Cary to Barrington, or Crystal Lake through Cary to Barrington, or Barrington through Cary to Crystal Lake,” Kownick said. “I want to capture that, by having reasonable fees.” Kownick has said he is worried Kaplan would have many conflicts of interest if he were village president, especially with potential developments. Kaplan said he has recused himself during Village Board decisions where he has a financial interest. He said he would send developers to Christopher Stilling, director of community and economic development, if someone came to village hall looking for possible places to locate

said. Nejedly’s position was eliminated because of budgetary concerns and a lack of construction in the area, the village told the jury. A two-day trial ended last week with the jury siding with the village after two and a half hours of deliberation, according to a news release from the village. This means the village will not have to pay the requested compensation of at least $135,000, according to the release. Thevillage“neverdoubted the outcome,” Weihofen said. “Discrimination of any kind is unacceptable in any form and will not be tolerated in any village department.”

who was younger and less qualified. Four other village employees also were laid off around the same time. Shortly after the layoffs, the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 150 filed a complaint with the state labor board, saying the village tried to suppress unionization when it laid off three of the employees, including Nejedly, after they attended a union meeting. The village settled in that case, paying about $25,000 to each employee, because it would have cost more to fight it, Village President Todd Weihofen said. In the age discrimination case, though, the village “decided to take a stand,” he

Rowe will be part of planning of high school’s expansion • PRINCIPAL Continued from page B1 When he officially starts July 1, Rowe likely will see the school’s athletic fields under construction, a product of the district’s initial effort to expand Huntley High School. Unveiled in January, the district’s expansion plan will intensify in the coming years, and Rowe will be part of the decisions to expand hallways and transform classrooms to meet the needs of 3,000 students. “It was kind of mixed emotions about moving to the high school. Marlowe is a wonderful place, and I absolutely love it,” Rowe said. “But with the changes coming to the high school, it’s an exciting time to be moving on.” Rowe already has met with the project’s architects about the expansion plan and the

future needs of the school. Once started, he plans to meet with teachers to get a sense of their needs. He also will be tasked with expanding the school’s emerging blended learning curriculum that is driven

by technology and a studentoriented learning style. Rowe said he will keep in constant contact with Johnson in the months ahead as he prepares to meet department heads, teachers and administrators after July 1. “Now the focus is on maintaining things [at Marlowe] and wrapping up the school year, but also starting a new chapter in my career at Huntley High School,” Rowe said. “I’m anxiously waiting the day I get to start.” Before leading Marlowe, Rowe was assistant principal for three years at Parkland Middle School in McHenry. Previously, he was a social studies teacher, football and softball coach at McHenry High School’s West Campus, after moving from his home state of Missouri. Rowe will earn $125,000 as Huntley High School’s principal.

reminded the license holders to make sure not serving alcohol to minors is ingrained into the culture of the businesses. “Just the fact somebody is BASSET trained doesn’t necessarily guarantee this is not going to happen,” Dianis said. “There has to be a corporate culture there that’s going to establish that environment.” Simon Lundie, owner of Bangkok, said the employee made a judgment error, and it comes down to a team effort when preventing minors from drinking. Lundie said passing on the fine to the employee might become his restaurant’s policy.

Village Trustee Jim Steigert reminded liquor license holders that people who are younger than 21 have IDs that are vertical. People 21 and older have horizontal IDs. “If it’s vertical, don’t serve; if it’s horizontal, you’re OK,”

Nunda races are close • PRIMARY Continued from page B1 In the supervisor race, Jennings received 945 votes to township Clerk Bridgett Provenzano’s 933, according to unofficial vote totals. Kerry Leigh, who dropped out of the race but remained on the ballot, received 421 votes. Jennings’ 12-vote cushion on Provenzano is a larger separation than in the other two Nunda races. But neither was calling the race over on Wednesday. Provenzano is not conceding the race. “I’m still hanging in there,”

she said. In Nunda’s highway commissioner race, “Iron Mike” Lesperance topped Rob Parrish by just four votes, 892 to 888. Jennings’ wife, Susan, lost her bid for township clerk to Angela Koscavage by a count of 1,152 to 1,145. Schultz said it was conceivable that one of the Nunda races could change based on absentee ballots. But not all 40 ballots picked up will ultimately come back in. “We always have some ballots that people take and don’t make their way back here for one reason or another,” she said.

Steigert said. David Foley, president of Foley’s Pub, which opened in October, had not been BASSET trained, which is required. Some of Foley’s employees have been BASSET certified, but not all. Foley said employees without certification will be BASSET trained, and there now is someone in the restaurant who is certified at all times. “It just hasn’t come into place yet,” Foley said. Village President John Schmitt, who also serves as liquor commissioner, said fines increase dramatically if there are repeated violations. “We really take this seriously,” Schmitt said. “If you come back again, it’s going to be a lot more severe.”

CLASS 4A JACOBS REGIONAL

Tigers get past Gators

Retirement on hold

By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com ALGONQUIN – The last time Crystal Lake Central faced Crystal Lake South, in the Jacobs Holiday Classic championship, Tigers coach Rich Czeslawski’s pregame motivational ploy was to bust up the second-place trophy from the previous year with a baseball bat. On Wednesday night, sensing his team was a little tight with a threepoint halftime lead, Czeslawski chose humor. “I told them a joke from ‘Pulp Fiction,’ the one Uma Thurman’s character tells,” Czeslawski said. The lightened mood, along with some strong defense, helped Central run away in the second half. The topseeded Tigers shot 63.6 percent from the field in the second half and defeated the No. 5 Gators, 69-49, in their Class 4A Jacobs Regional semifinal at the Eagles’ Nest. “We were real tight,” Czeslawski said. “Nobody looked scared, but we looked nervous. It was fun to see that in the third quarter.” Central (24-3) meets No. 3 Jacobs (1814) in Friday’s 7:30 p.m. championship game. The Golden Eagles beat DundeeCrown, 50-45, in the second semifinal Wednesday.

By JOE STEVENSON joestevenson@shawmedia.com ALGONQUIN – On one end, Jacobs was playing stifling defense that kept Dundee-Crown from scoring a field goal for a span of 13:35. On the other end, the Golden Eagles were making enough shots to build a 17-point lead. Still, Jacobs sensed D-C was not done. Not in a District 300 rivalry game. Not in a Class 4A Jacobs Regional semifinal. Chargers guard Brandon Rodriguez was almost unstoppable with 24 second-half points, but the Eagles withstood D-C’s furious rally for a 50-45 victory Wednesday night at the Eagles’ Nest. “These games have always gone like that,” said Jacobs forward Nick Ledinsky, who scored

12 points. “We knew they would come out hard, but it was nothing we couldn’t handle. I’ve never played in a bigger game in my life. I don’t want this to end.” Jacobs coach Jim Hinkle, who is retiring, will coach at least one more game. The No. 3-seeded Eagles (18-14) will play top-seeded Crystal Lake Central (24-3) at 7:30 p.m. Friday for the regional championship. Jim Hinkle “When your career’s on the line, it’s fun to play in a game like that,” Hinkle said. “We’ve been looking at this game for a long time. As soon as the regional assignments came out, you knew what it would come down to.” Jacobs built a 30-13 lead in the third quarter when Rodriguez

worked his way inside and scored, ending a field-goal drought that went back to 2:41 of the first quarter. The 6-foot-1 senior was just getting started. Rodriguez scored 15 points in the third quarter, D-C (22-6) forced six turnovers and got back into the game. “I felt it after my first basket and wanted to get us back into the game,” Rodriguez said. “We’re mostly seniors, we had to leave it all out on the court. We just didn’t execute at all offensively or defensively in the first half.” Jacobs managed to hit some big shots to keep at least a four-point lead through the fourth quarter. The Eagles hit 8 of 11 free throws in the fourth quarter to help seal the outcome.

to keep the Tigers from coming back. So she huffed into the locker room and let her teammates have it, carrying out the leadership duties she has all season. But once Huntley had finished off a 47-43 victory, Ream said what she felt needed to be conveyed. She apologized, feeling she had gone too far in saying what she had at halftime. “She’s too polite,” junior Sam Andrews said. That might be the only knock on Ream, who has stepped into every role Huntley has needed her to. She’s a hard-nosed defender. She can work her way into the post and rebound on the defensive end of the floor and then deliver a ball to the Red Raiders’ scorers on the other.

BOYS BASKETBALL: CLASS 3A BURLINGTON CENTRAL REGIONAL

Hampshire regroups in time By JARED BIRCHFIELD sportsdesk@nwherald.com BURLINGTON – Hampshire’s boys basketball team showed Wednesday night one of the reasons why it’s the top seed in the Class 3A Burlington Central Regional. After fourth-seeded Burlington Central scored the first 11 points of the game, the Whip-Purs kept their cool and turned the game around for a 49-31 semifinal win. Hampshire senior Tyler Crater scored his 1,000th point in the victory, which sent the Whips to Friday’s 7:30 p.m. championship game against second-seeded Sycamore. “I was thinking as we were in a timeout after they scored the first seven points about the Grayslake North game where we were down 16-7 and we ended up winning by 30, so I said we just got to keep our composure,” Crater said. “The shots will start falling, and that’s what we did, and we were able to climb back in it at halftime.” Solving Burlington Central’s 1-3-1 zone was the key to the Whip-Purs taking charge of the game. “We knew they were going to come out hot, amped up at

I give my team the credit because the listened and ran it to a T.” Controlling the boards was also a contributing factor for Hampshire (23-5). The Whip-Purs had more second-chance points than the Rockets. “It came down to making shots. We struggled with that all year,” Burlington Central coach Brett Porto said “If we can’t create turnovers and get some one-and-dones on the other end, we struggle with scoring.” “They have a bunch of

strong physical guys who crash hard, and they took advantage of us with that,” Porto said. Reserve Matthew Bridges finally put Hampshire on the board with 1:51 left in the first quarter with a layup. The sophomore added three more points on the Whips’ next possession with another layup and Hampshire’s only converted free throw of night. Crater scored the first three of his game-high 13 points on a 3-pointer with a minute left in the quarter. The Rockets (14-14) started the second quarter leading 11-8. Brett Rau (eight points) opened Burlington Central’s scoring with a 3-pointer before Hampshire went on a 8-0 run to take the lead, 16-14, capped by a Crater alley-oop slam dunk on a long pass from Ryan Cork. “We weren’t expecting them to be in zone and we run that play against the zone,” said Crater. “When I saw [Cork] throw it, it was really up there and I just have to go and try and get it.” Michael Dumoulin and Shane Hernandez both scored 10 points for Hampshire. Moter Deng led the Rockets with nine points.

CLASS 3A WOODSTOCK NORTH REGIONAL

All-Woodstock final Thunder, Blue Streaks will clash for title By PATRICK MASON pmason@shawmedia.com WOODSTOCK – It took two quarters, but it finally registered for Woodstock North seniors Steven Whiting and Shane Zieman. The Thunder entered halftime down by one against Marengo with full knowledge it could have been and should have been more. But the two guards didn’t want their season to end and took control in a 67-54 win over the Indians in the Class 3A Woodstock North Regional semifinals. The Thunder will face Woodstock at 7:30 p.m. Friday. “I felt like we came out with a lot more energy in that second half than the first,” said Whiting, who led all scorers with 18 points. “We realized that [Marengo] wasn’t going to let us have it so we had to go out and take it. “We realized that it could have been our last game and we didn’t want that. Us seniors tried to get our team motivated and put them on our back.” Whiting started the Thunder on a 5-0 run to open the second half as he scored his team’s first five points to give them their biggest lead until that point. Marengo’s Weston Shepard connected on a 3-pointer, but Zieman answered with one of his own. Zieman then cut through the lane for a layup under the arms of Marengo’s 6-foot-6 center Andrew Volkening. The Thunder scored 12 points in the first 2:40 of the third quarter before the Indians called a timeout. “It was all energy and in-

We didn’t have that energy and intensity in the first half but we brought it in the second. “We kept our same game plan and I told the kids in the locker room that ‘you need to bring some fight to this game,’ and they brought it. It’s good for Shane kick-start us there and to that kind of game for us.” Zieman finished with 17 points, 10 of which came in the second half. Marengo’s Adam Rogutich had a team-high 15 points. “That’s great for him,” Indians coach Dave Pettit said of the junior. “I thought we played well, but [the Thunder] took advantage of us in foul trouble and we didn’t get out to a bigger lead in the first half when we should have.” “We’ve had two good ones so far,” he said. “We’ve got a great student section that will come out and the atmosphere will be great. It should be exciting. They’re a good basketball

team, but I think that this team here is very capable of playing hard and getting the job done. We just need that intensity for all four quarters on Friday.”

Woodstock 59, Marian Central 36: After a slow start, Woodstock found its rhythm offensively. Marian Central (4-27) started the game on a 5-2 run, but around midway through the quarter the Blue Streaks found their touch in a 6-0 run. “I think we played a pretty balanced game,” Blue Streaks coach Al Baker said. “Early on we did get going the way we wanted, but our defense was solid enough to keep us afloat and once we started to shoot the ball a little bit better was when we started to take control.” The Streaks (18-10) went on a 7-0 run early in the second quarter. Jordan Turner and Andy Buhrow connected on 3-pointers, while 6-foot-7 Damian Stoneking began to find his rhythm under the basket. At halftime the Streaks’ lead was 22-12. When the third quarter began more shots began to fall for the Streaks as Buhrow made all three of his 3-point attempts and Turner added another along with four more points in the lane. “We just really needed a moment to relax and get warmed up,” said Turner, who scored a game-high 22 points. “Once we got loose we did just fine. “Speaking of getting loose, I think the [snow storm] hurt Marian more than it did us. They came off a win, and to give them a day off brought them back to earth, and I think it helped us a bit.”

The second team was Bloom’s Bria Gaines, Edwardsville’s Kortney Dunbar, Rolling Meadows’ Jackie Kemph, Wheaton Warrenville South’s Meghan Wladron and Peoria Richwoods’ Olivia Elger. In Class 3A, the first team

was Quincy Notre Dame’s Jordan Frericks and Kassidy Gengenbacher, Joliet Catholic’s Jasmine Lumpkin, Morton’s Sarah Livingston and Bishop McNamara’s Khadaisha Sanders. The second team was Springfield Southeast’s Justice Collins, Montini’s Malayna Johnson and Kateri Stone, Rockford Lutheran’s Rachel Konieczki and Champaign Centennial’s Katelynn Martinez.

She averages almost six rebounds a game. She leads Huntley with almost four assists a game and throws in 21⁄2 steals a game, making an impact Red Raiders coach Steve Raethz defines as immeasurable. “She really understands what we need on the floor and she’s just brought it all season long,” Raethz said. “The players obviously look up to her and in a sense, they understand to follow her lead.” To make that happen, Ream has had to be the most vocal she’s been throughout her career. On the floor, she voices her opinion as much as she can without being abrasive, admitting she doesn’t like to yell. But at times, it’s tough for her to hold her tongue only because she’s not ready for

her career to end. But she also uses such occasions as teaching moments. As the only senior who makes significant contributions to this year’s state-bound team, Ream understands how much brighter the future is for the Red Raiders. So she wants those around her to take from her experience, even if it means expressing tough love when it’s needed. Sometimes, she said, it just needs to be done. And throughout the season, her teammates have fed off her example. “Haley means a lot to our team,” freshman Ali Andrews said. “She picks us all up when we’re down. She’s a really good leader – on the court and off. She’s really pumped up and she’s really confident in everyone.” She also is confident in a team that again will be a decided underdog Friday night

against Rolling Meadows (293) in Normal. The Red Raiders will try to slow down a team that averages 71 points a game and that scored a seasonhigh 95 this season against Wheaton North. Ream, who is known for finding inspirational YouTube clips to inspire her teammates before the game, again will deliver the message she believes her teammates need to hear, appreciating the historic nature of what will be the last weekend of her high school career. And as she has all season long, she’ll bring her teammates together and speak from her heart before leading the Red Raiders onto the floor. “We’ll just talk about what we need to do and what we need to focus on,” Ream said, “and (we’ll say) that we’re capable of anything if we work together.”

BLACKHAWKS

Hawks rolling after tweaks from year ago Season-opening points streak at 19 games heading into tilt in St. Louis By JAY COHEN The Associated Press CHICAGO – While the streak goes on and the Blackhawks pile up points, the same words are repeated over and over. It’s about improving each game, they say, and how you finish the season. Trying to win every night is another common refrain. The uniformity of the message is a testament to the mindset of the streaking Hawks, but it’s also a vote of confidence for the gruff conductor of the best start in NHL history. While a balanced attack and two hot goaltenders get all the credit, coach Joel Quenneville’s focus on the Hawks’ most glaring problems from last season has played a key role in the Hawks’ record-breaking run. “It’s nice having some familiarity back behind the bench,” forward Patrick Sharp said. “He knows how to push buttons and motivate.

Pulaski County State’s Attorney Grayson Gile said the pot charges related to Webb’s arrest Sunday night have been dropped, the (Carbondale) Southern Illinoisan reported. Gile told the newspaper the case lends itself to a “fair and equitable” resolution. Authorities said a deputy stopped the 24-year-old Webb for speeding on Interstate 57 in Pulaski County, in far southern Illinois along the Ohio River. Webb was freed Monday on bond. “Headed to Texas to train,” Webb tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “I apologize.”

AP source: 49ers to send Smith to Chiefs SAN FRANCISCO – Alex Smith quietly stayed behind the scenes after losing his job and watched from the sideline as San Francisco returned to the Super Bowl for the first time in 18 years. Yet the No. 1 overall draft pick from 2005 did make one thing known: The veteran quarterback still considers himself a starter. And he hoped to get that chance again. Now, he appears to have it. The Kansas City Chiefs have agreed to acquire Smith from the 49ers in the first major acquisition since Andy Reid took over as the team’s new coach in January, a person with knowledge of the trade told The Associated Press on Wednesday.

Then came a 6-4 victory at Phoenix the next night, and the Hawks just kept collecting points like squirrels hoarding acorns for another brutal Chicago winter. They set the NHL record for a season-opening points streak when they beat San Jose, 2-1, on Friday night to make it 17 in a row. Two more victories later, and the Hawks are at 19 heading into tonight’s game at rival St. Louis. “We were hoping to get off to a good start,” Quenneville said. “We looked at our schedule. We had a brutal schedule, when we play 10 out of 12 on the road. So we’re thinking hopefully we can put ourselves in a position when we come home we’d be in a decent spot. But

Forward Patrick Sharp says Quenneville has played a key role in the team’s record-breaking start. we didn’t see this happening, for sure.” It seems as if everyone on the roster has stepped up at one point or another during the 16-0-3 opening. Patrick Kane is among the league leaders with 10 goals and 14 assists. Goalie Corey Crawford has a terrific 1.50 goals-against average, and backup Ray Emery has won each of his eight starts. Defensemen Niklas Hjalmarsson

and Brent Seabrook are near the top of the NHL in blocked shots. “If you told us this at the start of the season, it would blow our socks off,” Sharp said. “I don’t think anyone anticipated this. But as the season’s gone on, it’s just come to the rink and prepare to play.” This run actually dates to last season in more ways than one. The Hawks have earned at least one point in 25 consec-

utive games overall, the thirdlongest point streak in NHL history. It’s the turnaround in a couple of the Hawks’ biggest weaknesses from last year ago that has fueled the confidence. “I think the areas that we talked about going into the season were things that we had to improve upon I think are much better,” Quenneville said. “Our penalty-killing for sure. Our goals-against average was, we had hit a different note last year as far as the quantity of goals we were giving up, the type of goals we were giving up. I think we’ve shored up our defensive zone coverage, that’s helped us. Our power play is more effective.” The Hawks struggled on special teams for most of last season, and it hurt them in close games. They converted only 15.2 percent of their power-play opportunities, which was 26th in the 30-team NHL, and killed off 78.1 percent of their opponents’ chances, good for 27th in the league. A year later, special teams are special once again. The Hawks are up to an 18.2-per-

CUBS’ SEVENTH INNING STRETCH

cent conversion rate on the power play and the penalty kill is a lofty 88.7 percent, second in the NHL behind Boston. It’s a big swing, and a major reason behind the Hawks’ 10-03 record in one-goal games. “Whether it’s a big save, whether it’s the special teams on a given night, usually everybody plays the score and the clock, and finding ways to win is important in our league,” Quenneville said. The 54-year-old former defenseman has been finding ways to win for a long time. He directed the Hawks to the Stanley Cup title in his second season with the team in 2010 and is the active leader with 640 victories as an NHL coach. His resumé adds to his credibility in the locker room, but Quenneville himself is focused on the next win for the Hawks. And they’ve picked up a bunch of them so far this year. “I think that’s the approach where we still want to look to improve and get better as we go along here,” Quenneville said, “and that’s a challenge we face.”

SPRING TRAINING ROUNDUP

Celebrities out as guest singers SS Castro By CARYN ROUSSEAU and DON BABWIN The Associated Press CHICAGO – Maybe it was race driver Jeff Gordon’s shout out to the fans at “Wrigley Stadium.” Or Ozzy Osbourne, who decided the lyrics of “Take Me Out to The Ball Game” were not nearly as interesting as the mostly unintelligible words he’d picked out for himself. Or perhaps it was actress Denise Richards, who brought along a little cheat sheet in case she forgot the words. Whatever the reason, the Cubs have decided to make the broadcast booth at Wrigley Field, and more importantly, the microphone, off limits to the likes of Vanna White, Erik Estrada and Mickey Rooney. Marion Ross apparently will be the last member of the “Happy Days” cast to sing during the seventh-inning stretch. No more Kid Rock, who, as the story goes, knew it was customary to say something at the end of the song, but went with “Let’s get some lunch!” instead of the more traditional “Let’s get some runs.” “I think the last couple of years we had gotten away to a couple of people who weren’t tied to Chicago,” said Jim Oboikowitch, the Cubs in-game programming director in what might be a bit of understatement after more than a decade of Peter Frampton, David Cassidy, Barbara Eden and Frank Sinatra (Junior) leading the Wrigley faithful in song. Some fans are pleased. “It was a good idea at first,” Al Yellon, who runs bleedcubbieblue.com, said of the Cubs’ decision to allow celebrities to take over the job the late Harry Caray handled so famously for so many years. “But it turned into a celebrity fest with Dlist celebrities.” Ouch.

Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne sing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” during the seventh-inning stretch of a Cubs game Aug. 17, 2003, at Wrigley Field. Since the death of veteran Cubs announcer Harry Caray in 1998, celebrities have taken the booth and sung the song handled so famously by Caray for so many years. Actor Joe Mantegna, a Chicago native and lifelong Cubs fan who has led the singing at Wrigley at least four times, said he agrees with the change. The coauthor of the play “Bleacher Bums” said there is something wrong with some “Jose Schmo who won an Oscar, is from Canada and hates baseball” donning a Cubs jersey and singing the song. Wrong in many ways, too: See YouTube for the evidence and

bring your ear plugs. At the same time, as a fan of a team that hasn’t won the World Series since 1908, Mantegna won’t rule out bringing in someone – anyone – if it can somehow help the Cubs break the most infamous drought in American sports. “If it takes bringing a Martian to sing to get into the World Series, I’d advocate for that,” he said. The song is played during

the stretch around the major leagues, usually the ballpark organist leading the fans in song. Some parks have their own traditions, of course – Fenway Park and Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” in the eighth inning, for example. The Florida Marlins tried to skip “Take Me Out to The Ball Game” to go with dancers leading fans to Gloria Estefan songs, a tradition that lasted all of two games. For a team that doesn’t exactly have a long history of embracing change – lights didn’t arrive until 1988 – messing with a musical tradition tied forever to Caray might seem a dramatic step. But the Cubs have a new regime in place, with Theo Epstein and other front-office personnel trying to turn around baseball’s famous losers and chairman Tom Ricketts pressing for upgrades to Wrigley, the oldest ballpark in the majors behind Fenway. The Cubs are coming off a year in which they lost 100 games in a season (101, actually) for the first time since 1966 and just the third time in their history. So maybe change is a good thing, wherever it comes. Not everybody is warmed by the thought that they have seen the last of Tom Arnold or Dawn Wells in the broadcast booth. “Part of the fun was having Erik Estrada up there,” said Steve Rhodes, a longtime fan whose Chicago-oriented website, The Beachwood Reporter, once posted a song “Don’t Start Believin’ ” to remind other fans what happens whenever they get their hopes up. “This is kind of the Cubs screwing up in reverse again [because] it was something stupid they should never have done in the first place but then making it worse by taking the fun part away, all these D listers.”

leaves with hamstring tightness The ASSOCIATED PRESS

MESA, Ariz. – Starlin Castro wanted a third at-bat. He got it and then pulled up lame. Castro left in the bottom of the fourth inning after pulling up on a ground ball to shortstop Wednesday during an 11-7 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Cubs said their shortstop had left hamstring tightness. “It was a little bit tight but not too bad,” Castro said. “I felt it when I touched the base. It scared me. I don’t want to be hurt. I feel too good this year.” Castro, who was the designated hitter, played in 162 games last and expects to do so again this year. “He was jogging around in the training room a little bit,” Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. “It was more tight than a pull or anything. He pulled up quite a bit, and he was kind of hobbling, but it doesn’t seem like a big deal at all. Certain players love to play period. He is one them guys and there is no taking him out of the lineup. He begged for the third at-bat and looked what happened.” White Sox 8, Rangers 4: At Glendale, Ariz., newly acquired Conor Gillaspie homered off Collin Balester in the sixth inning, helping the Sox beat Texas and drop the Rangers to 0-5 in spring training. Acquired Friday from San Francisco for minor league pitcher Jeff Soptic, Gillaspie had four RBIs against the Rangers. Paul Konerko hit a two-run homer against left-hander Robbie Ross, and 24-year-old right-hander Simon Castro allowed one hit in three scoreless innings for the win. The Sox (3-0-2) are unbeaten through its first five exhibition games for the first time since moving spring training from Florida to Arizona for 1998.

MEN’S BASKETBALL MIDWEST ROUNDUP

Penn St. upsets No. 4 Michigan, ending Big 10 skid The ASSOCIATED PRESS STATE COLLEGE, Pa. – Jermaine Marshall scored 25 points and Penn State upset No. 4 Michigan, 84-78, on Wednesday night for its first Big Ten victory in more than a year. The Nittany Lions (9-18, 1-14) had lost 18 straight regular-season conference games dating to last season, but they roared back from a 15-point deficit with 10:39 left behind the energetic play of Marshall. The junior guard scored 19 in the second half, including four 3s that whipped Jordan Center fans

into a frenzy. D.J. Newbill added 17 points for Penn State, which hit a season-high 10 3-pointers. Marshall’s twisting drive to the basket gave the Nittany Lions a three-point lead before Michigan’s Glenn Robinson III misfired on a 3 with 17 seconds left. Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 19 points for the Wolverines (23-5, 10-5).

Illinois St. 86, Missouri St. 50:

At Normal, Tyler Brown scored 25 points and Jackie Carmichael added 16 points and 11 rebounds to lead ISU against Missouri State. Johnny Hill had 15 points and seven rebounds for the Redbirds (17-13, 8-9 Missouri Valley). Anthony Downing scored 12 points to lead the Bears (9-21, 6-11). No. 10 Louisville 79, DePaul S.

Iowa (17-13, 10-7).

Creighton 80, Bradley 62: At Peoria, Doug McDermott had another big game at Carver Arena, scoring 32 points, and Creighton (23-7, 12-5 MVC) moved into a first-place tie in the MVC with a victory over Bradley (16-14, 7-10). E. Michigan 53, N. Illinois 41: At DeKalb, Glenn Bryant and Derek Thompson scored 14 points apiece and Eastern Michigan’s defense stifled NIU for the second time this season. Eastern Michigan (13-15, 6-7 Mid-American) won for only the second time in its past six games by limiting NIU (5-21, 3-10) to 24 percent shooting.

Belmont 73, SIU-Edwardsville 43: At Nashville, Tenn., Blake Jenkins scored 17 points with 11 rebounds as Belmont (23-6, 13-2) trounced SIU-Edwardsville (9-17, 5-10) to secure its fourth consecutive regular-season conference championship and first Ohio Valley Conference title. Iowa 58, Purdue 48: At Iowa City, Iowa, Aaron White had 18 points and nine rebounds and Iowa beat Purdue for its fourth win in five games. Devyn Marble also had 18 for the Hawkeyes (18-10, 7-8 Big Ten). The Boilermakers (13-15, 6-9) got as close as 49-43, but poor shooting doomed them.


OUTDOORS & FINE PRINT

Northwest Herald / NWHerald.com

IDNR: CWD serious matter Reader James Krause sent an email that concerned me: “Steve, I’ve been an avid deer hunter and sportsman my whole life. I’ve lived here since 1979. Not much has changed. I have a 35-acre hay field behind me with thick woods around it. There are no new homes or neighbors, and I’ve harvested some great deer, but I’m having some concerns with the deer population. “Coming home, on February 4 at 5:30 p.m., I saw the DNR hunting deer on McHenry County Conservation District property. They were just west of the Brookdale Bridge. That is at least 5 years that I’ve seen them out here. Last summer while at my local business, I talked to some one high up in the MCCD and he said that the DNR was stopped from hunting for 2013. I don’t get it! Harvest is down, permits are down and people out in the field are down. What message is this sending to our youth? “I haven’t seen but one small deer since the middle of November in back. Tell me how many deer tested positive with CWD in the past five years in McHenry County. I think this is overkill.” I sent Krause’s email to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources because I wanted the straight dope on the issue and I don’t feel qualified to craft an answer myself. Paul Shelton, manager of the Forest Wildlife Program for the IDNR sent me his response: “Preliminary deer harvest totals for McHenry County for the 2012 seasons were 1,062, compared to 989 in 2011 and 948 in 2010. Chronic wasting disease was first found in McHenry County during the fall of 2002, when two cases were discovered near Woodstock. Thirty deer with CWD have now been found in the county, with 14 of those occurring during the past 5 years. The low level of CWD found in McHenry County (and elsewhere in Illinois) should not be misconstrued to mean that CWD is not serious – it is simply a testament to the effectiveness of Illinois’ disease management program. “CWD is a very real and serious threat to Illinois’ deer herd. Although outbreaks develop relatively slowly, CWD is efficiently transmitted from sick to healthy deer; all animals that become infected die from the disease and there is no treatment or cure. While some Illinois hunters believe that CWD is insignificant, that it will inherently remain at low levels without management and will have little impact if left unchecked, all scientific evidence says otherwise. Perhaps the belief that CWD is not a problem stems from the success that IDNR has had in keeping disease prevalence rates very low during the past decade. “In part of Wyoming, however, where CWD has been unmanaged, infection rates are greater than 50 percent and their deer herd has been declining significantly. Dis-

OUTDOORS Steve Sarley ease rates are also increasing rapidly in our northern neighbor, Wisconsin. We don’t believe that our residents want this to happen to Illinois deer and our management of the disease, so far, has kept CWD at very low levels and helped to prevent its spread. “The sad reality of CWD is that it cannot currently be controlled without significant reductions in deer populations where the disease occurs. No other approach has demonstrated any success. If we allow deer populations to remain at traditional density levels, the disease will increase and will spread more rapidly into new areas. Without management it is a virtual certainty that in the long-term the disease will worsen significantly in northern Illinois, spreading to the remainder of the state and increasing the impact on the deer herd as prevalence rates increase. The Illinois Department of Natural Resources supplements recreational hunter harvest of deer with a very limited and focused sharpshooting program that takes deer only from very specific areas where we know CWD is present. Controlling disease using this approach at the local level allows us to most effectively fight CWD without drastically reducing deer populations throughout the entire county, as would be the case if we were forced to use hunting as the only tool for disease control. This actually benefits the hunters who would prefer to not see a widescale deer population reduction and it is clearly more effective. IDNR’s sharpshooting program is conducted only in specific areas where CWD is known to occur and site priorities are determined based upon local infection rates, along with deer density and distribution information collected by aerial deer counts. Generally speaking, our highest priority work areas are those with the most “entrenched” disease, highest prevalence rates and highest deer densities. In those specific areas, our goal is to significantly reduce the local deer population, since it is serving as a source of disease that maintains the epidemic and spreads it to new areas. “However, there are other sharpshooting locations where our goal is different. For example, in new “spark” areas (representing the first finding of CWD in a new location) the goal is to collect enough disease testing data to allow biologists to determine the local status of CWD. Typically, in those locations, sharpshooters target a set number of deer needed for sampling and leave the area when that goal is reached. That target number takes into account the number of samples that we received from hunters. Results of

this follow-up CWD testing affect how the site will be treated in the future. “When management efforts are successful, and surveillance testing no longer finds CWD in an area for a number of years, sharpshooting is discontinued in that area. Because of this approach, we no longer sharpshoot in the area east/southeast of Woodstock where CWD was first found in McHenry County, for example. “While deer densities in localized areas are impacted by our sharpshooting approach, the majority of the landscape in CWD counties is not. Although the CWD management area comprises thousands of (one-square mile) sections across northern Illinois, IDNR sharpshooting activities have generally been confined to properties in about 100 sections or less (a very small percentage of the total area). In McHenry County last year, IDNR sharpshooters took 69 deer from fifteen sections, while hunters harvested 989 during the hunting seasons. As you can see from the number of sections impacted, we are only working in a very small part of the county, since McHenry County contains slightly more than 600 square miles. “The Illinois Department of Natural Resources’ biologists realize that herd reductions are an inconvenience to hunters, who eagerly anticipate the opening of deer hunting seasons. However, we firmly believe this to be preferable to the alternative – allowing this disease to increase and spread (as it has in several other states) will have very serious and longterm negative consequences for the Illinois deer herd. We are not trying to destroy the deer herd, but rather are trying to protect it. Since CWD was discovered in 2002, we must consider the likelihood that deer populations and deer management in Illinois will never be the same again – at least until a cure is found. If we pretend that CWD is inconsequential, or that it will go away all by itself, we would not be accepting the reality of the situation. Conservation of natural resources is much more than providing abundant deer in the short term for the recreational enjoyment of hunters; it is about being responsible stewards of our deer resource with an eye for their long term benefit and sustainability. Sometimes this requires difficult decisions to be made, and this is certainly one of those times. For additional information about CWD, please visit our website at dnr.illinois.gov/programs/CWD.” Opinions, please? I’ll hold my comments for later.

Man begins to regret giving his ex-wife a place to stay Dear Abby: My ex-wife cheated on me five years ago. She ran off with a nonworking criminal type and has been bouncing from place to place with this bozo ever since. When they and their 3-year-old became homeless two weeks ago, all of a sudden she showed up at my door shoeless and with their son in a diaper. She said her boyfriend was abusive and asked to stay with me until she finds a place. I agreed under the provision that she not see this guy. I am a hard-working single father of two. I know my heart is two sizes too big for my own good sometimes, and I don’t want to be taken

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips advantage of. Abby, did I make the right choice? Or should I have told her she was not welcome and turned her and her son away? I really feel I shouldn’t have to help her, and she should rely on her loser boyfriend – who she has started seeing again. I need guidance and your expert advice. Am I an idiot? – Confused Dear Confused: You’re not an idiot; you’re a pushover. Your ex already has broken the agreement she made when you let her in. The

situation is not going to get better; it will only become more complicated. You have helped her for two weeks. Now it’s time to direct her to a shelter that can help her get her life back together and give her son a stable home. Your responsibility for her welfare ended when she left you for another man. Dear Abby: I just finished reading the letter from “Cafe Crazy” (Jan. 4), about the woman changing the baby on the restaurant’s table. You advised she should have taken the baby to the ladies’ room to change it on a changing table there, and if there wasn’t one, there should be.

I am a stay-at-home father and many times have had to resort to an awkward changing table alternative to accomplish the task (though never a restaurant table) as there are very few changing tables in men’s rooms. In these dynamic, diverse and changing economic times, the ability to stay home and raise my children has been awesome, and I would do it over again in a heartbeat. It has been hard, however, because society still assumes raising children is a woman’s job. Not only should there have been a changing table in the ladies’ room, but also one in the men’s room. Abby, please help us proud papas to raise our

children with the same facilities allowed the mommas of the world. – Grant In

the room to install a third one. Dear Abby: Something has been bothering me and I’d like your opinion. If a group of people goes out to eat together, and no one wants to order dessert except one person, is it rude for that person to keep everyone else waiting and watching while he/she orders and eats the dessert? – Check, Please Dear Check, Please: It’s not rude if you first ask the others in the group if they would mind, and they wanted to chat over coffee.

Sunnyvale, Calif. Dear Grant: I apologize, and I’m glad to have the opportunity to not only help fathers everywhere to raise their children, but also to raise consciousness where it is needed. Since the letter from “Cafe Crazy” was printed, I have heard from parents of both sexes, as far away as Denmark. Although some men’s restrooms are equipped with changing tables, not all are – and they should be. Another solution is a “family” restroom; however, many establishments have neither the money nor

Think of exercise as way to feel good Dear Dr. K: I know I should exercise regularly, but I just can’t get motivated. Do you have any suggestions? Dear Reader: Practically everyone has heard exercise is good for you. But not many people know just how good it is for you. For example, did you know walking briskly for 30 minutes, at least five times a week, can do more to reduce your risk of getting diabetes than any medicine yet invented? It cuts your risk of diabetes in half. Regular exercise helps you feel better, look great, and live a longer, more joyful life. I exercise for half an hour nearly every morning. Here are some strategies that help me – and many of my patients – stay on course when our motivation flags. I hope they’ll help you, too. • Keep it personal. Choose activities that suit your lifestyle, time constraints, budget and physical condition. It doesn’t need to be at a gym; I have equipment in my basement. The time it would take to go to a gym just wouldn’t work for me. You can get exercise

ASK DR. K Dr. Anthony Komaroff throughout the day. For example, take the stairs instead of the elevator. I moved from a one-level home to a three-level home about 10 years ago, and I found that my weight dropped about 3 pounds within a month of the move – just from using the stairs. • It’s OK to do it in pieces. You don’t need to exercise for 30 minutes at a time. You can do it in pieces, five to 10 minutes at a time, throughout the day.

• You don’t need to sweat. When you exercise in pieces, you won’t sweat – or need to shower, change clothes and so forth. That’s fine; it still leads to healthy changes in the body. • Make it fit. Schedule blocks of exercise into your weekly schedule, and add bits of activity and recreational exercise to your day. An extra lap around the mall or some stair-climbing at home can add up. I deliberately park in a garage that’s about a half-mile from my office, even though I

could park closer. That’s about a mile walk every day. • Try an app. Smartphones can’t exercise for you, but they can give you friendly reminders, track your progress and make the process more interesting. • Set realistic goals. Unrealistic expectations will set you up for frustration and failure. A better approach is to set an attainable long-term goal, such as walking for 30 minutes five days a week. Then break it down into monthly or weekly targets. • Get back on track. Even the most dedicated exercisers sometimes go astray. If you’ve been away from your routine for two weeks or more, don’t expect to start where you left off. Give your body time to readjust. And a final tip that helps when all else fails: Rather than focus on why I don’t want to exercise, I concentrate on how good I’ll feel when I’ve finished.

Lohan wants to do PSAs THINGS

WORTH TALKIN’ ABOUT

Thursday, February 28, 2013 • PlanitNorthwest.com/buzz

Lindsay Lohan is committed to turning her life around and wants to record public service announcements on the dangers of domestic violence, alcohol abuse and drunken driving, her attorney said Wednesday. Mark Heller said the actress’ plans are independent of a criminal case that could return her to jail on charges that she lied to police about being a passenger in her car when it slammed into a dump truck in June. The “Liz & Dick” star has been repeatedly sentenced to jail, rehab, and community service since her first pair of arrests for driving under the influence in 2007. She spent several months in court-ordered psychotherapy until a judge released her from supervised probation in March.

Court nixes James Brown estate settlement The Stone Temple Pilots Dean Deleo (from left), Eric Kretz, Robert Deleo and Scott Weiland

Weiland responds to STP firing Singer Scott Weiland said he learned he’d been fired by the Stone Temple Pilots when the band released a one-sentence statement to the media Wednesday. “I learned of my supposed ‘termination’ from Stone Temple Pilots this morning by reading about it in the press,” he wrote in a statement. “Not sure how I can be ‘terminated’ from a band that I founded, fronted and co-wrote many of its biggest hits, but that’s something for the lawyers to figure out.” The statement by the band said: “Stone Temple Pilots have announced they have officially terminated Scott Weiland.” No other information was provided. Weiland said he’s focusing on his solo tour, which kicks off Friday in Flint, Mich. Stone Temple Pilots’ 1992 debut, “Core,” has sold more than 8 million units in the United States. Their hits include “Vasoline,” “Interstate Love Song” and “Plush,” which won a Grammy in 1993 for best hard rock performance with vocal. Weiland also was in the supergroup Velvet Revolver with Slash and other musicians. The 45-year-old has dealt with drug addiction, run-ins with the law and two failed marriages. He released his memoir, “Not Dead & Not for Sale,” in 2011. The Stone Temple Pilots’ latest album is their self-titled 2010 release.

The South Carolina Supreme Court on Wednesday overturned a settlement divvying up the multimilliondollar estate of James Brown, saying a former attorney general didn’t follow the late soul singer’s wishes in putting together the deal. James Brown Attorney General Henry McMaster brokered a settlement in 2009 that split Brown’s estate, giving nearly half to a charitable trust, a quarter to his widow, Tomi Rae Hynie, and leaving the rest to be split among his adult children. But the justices ruled the deal ignored Brown’s wishes for most of his money to go to charity. The court also ruled the Godfather of Soul was of sound mind when he made his will before dying of heart failure on Dec. 25, 2006, at age 73.

Goodman Theatre announces lineup Playwright Rebecca Gilman’s work returns to the Goodman Theatre stage next season with the play “Luna Gale” to be directed by Goodman artistic director Robert Falls. The Chicago theater announced its 2013-14 season Wednesday. It includes the work by Gilman, which features a social worker’s dealings with two teenage drug addicts and their baby. It will run from Jan. 18 to Feb. 23, 2014. Gilman

More celeb news at PlanitNorthwest.com/buzz has received a Guggenheim Fellowship and is working on a commission for Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre Company. The Goodman’s season also includes performances of “Brigadoon” and the theater’s annual holiday mainstay “A Christmas Carol.” The season opens in September with the Chicago premiere of Cheryl West’s “Pullman Porter Blues.”

Superdome commission meets The manager of Louisiana’s Superdome is recommending dome officials have an engineering study done with an eye toward changing the stadium’s emergency power systems. Doug Thornton says that idea has been in the works since well before the Super Bowl, when a partial power outage put half the dome on emergency backup power for more than half an hour. Thornton’s comments Wednesday came during a meeting of the Louisiana Stadium and Exposition District board.

NBC, ID partners on Pistorius doc The desire to produce a quick documentary on Olympic runner Oscar Pistorius and the shooting death of his live-in girlfriend has led to a new partnership between two television networks. The Investigation Discovery Network on Sunday will premiere a special, “Beauty & The Blade Runner,” about the South African athlete and his role in the shooting death of model Reeva Steenkamp. ID is making the special with the help of NBC News and that company’s Peacock Productions.

Dr. Michael Thompson demonstrates brushing techniques to students at St. John the Baptist Catholic School in Johnsburg.

Brushing up on dental health Orthodontist reaches out to students in Johnsburg By CHRIS CASHMAN ccashman@shawmedia.com JOHNSBURG – Dr. Michael Thompson of Conlon & Thompson Orthodontics in McHenry advised students not to take their teeth for granted Wednesday at St. John the Baptist Catholic School in Johnsburg. “It’s as simple as brushing your teeth. If you do that, you’ll live a happier, healthier lifestyle,” Thompson said. Thompson gave talks to kids by age group. For younger kids his props included an oversized toothbrush and yarn for floss. A PowerPoint presentation included “yucky” pictures of tooth decay. “This is what happens when you don’t brush your teeth,” Thompson warned. Often, Thompson’s warnings hit home. “Parents come in and say their kids are brushing their teeth like a maniac,” Thompson said. “What had been a daily battle, the kids start taking responsibility for their dental health.” This is the sixth year Conlon & Thompson has visited area schools. “We like to get out to the community to talk to kids about brushing their teeth and how to take care of them,” Thompson said. “It’s well received by parents and students.” Dr. Michael Conlon has been in practice in McHenry since 1978. Thompson joined the practice in 2006. Conlon & Thompson participates in a candy buy-back program around Halloween. “For every pound of candy donated we give $1 to the PTA,” Thompson said. “We donate the can-

Conlon’s son, Sean, is an Army ranger who has served in Afghanistan.

Each February, the American Dental Association sponsors National Children’s Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of oral health. Although this year’s month-long observance is winding down, “It’s never a bad time for dental health,” Thompson said. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends all children get a check-up with an orthodontic specialist no later than age 7. Orthodontists can spot subtle problems with jaw growth and emerging teeth while some baby teeth are still present. While your child’s teeth may appear to be straight, there could be a problem that only an orthodontist can detect.

Increase in pending home sales boosts stocks The Associated Press NEW YORK – Stocks closed sharply higher for a second day as evidence mounts that the housing market is making a comeback. The Dow Jones industrial average jumped 175 points to 14,075 Wednesday, its highest close of the year. It’s up nearly 300 points over the past two days, putting it within 100 points of its record high reached in October 2007. Home builder stocks surged as more positive news about housing rolled in. Hovnanian soared 5 percent to $6.06 and Lennar rose 2 percent to $38.94. A realty group said the number of Americans who signed contracts to buy homes jumped in January to the highest level in almost three years.

The National Association of Realtors said Wednesday that its seasonally adjusted index for pending home sales rose 4.5 percent last month to 105.9. That’s the highest since April 2010, when a homebuyer’s tax credit was about to expire. There is generally a one- to two-month lag between a signed contract and a completed sale. Pending home sales rose in all regions, but just barely ticked up in the West, where a limited supply of available homes is holding back sales. The increase is the latest positive report for the housing market, which began recovering last year after a deep, six-year slump. Steady hiring and nearly record-low mortgage rates have encouraged more Americans to buy homes. More people are also moving out on their own after living with friends and relatives in the recession. That’s driving a big gain in apartment construc-

tion and also pushing up rents. “Housing market activity appears to have ended 2012 on a positive note and is off to a strong start in 2013,” Cooper Howes, U.S. economist at Barclays Capital, said in a note to clients. Sales of previously occupied homes ticked up in January after rising to their highest level in five years in 2012. And new-home sales jumped 16 percent last month from December to the highest level since July 2008, the Commerce Department said Tuesday. Home prices, meanwhile, rose by the most in more than six years in the 12 months ending in December. Steady price increases are also contributing to the housing recovery. They encourage more people to buy before prices rise further.

Stories of people who conquered debt As I promised last month, here are more stories of people who got themselves out of debt in different ways – sometimes very difficult ways requiring personal sacrifice. But just as recovering from a serious illness may require harsh medicine, most debt-free people declare that it was most definitely worth the effort. Take Tom, for example, a 57year-old man who gained custody of three girls after a divorce. His salary could no longer support living in their house and they were forced to move into an apartment in the same school district. A second job became necessary when one of his daughters needed to be hospitalized with a chronic health problem, and his insurance did not fully cover the bills. After several failed attempts at augmenting his income with various jobs, he started a paper route which provided only $400 per month. The schedule was a nightmare, but he managed to get up and complete his route before waking the girls and having breakfast with them.

Extras for the girls, such as cheerleading and other school activities, had to be sacrificed, and the girls took jobs at a local restaurant to save their pennies for pocket money and, eventually, for their own transportation needs. As if that weren’t enough, one credit card raised the interest rate from 9.9 percent to 12.9 percent, even thought he was paying on time. His debt had ballooned to $36,000. Desperate for help, he entered into a five-year debt management program with a Lutheran social service agency with a monthly payment of $633. Some of his debt interest was reduced to just 1.75 percent. He also set up a repayment plan with the hospital where his daughter had received treatment. Two of the girls started college with the help of scholarships and financial aid and the third took CNA classes. Now an empty-nester, he canceled his cable and Internet service. He then took out a mortgage on a $53,900, two-bedroom townhouse, which, due to a crashing market and a homebuyer stimulus package, he

MONEY MATTERS Virginia Peschke could now afford. He swapped a $1,200 a month apartment for the townhome with monthly payments of just $400. He expects to be free of credit card debt by 2015. Then there was Molly who also had been saddled with $36,000 in credit card debt. She feared telling her boyfriend, thinking that he would surely run if she confessed. But he didn’t run, when she got up the courage to tell him. She had acquired the debt while in college, many times spending unwisely for fancy clothes. She had spent the last two years whittling her debt down to $12,598 and she was still struggling to make the payments. Her boyfriend realized that although she had made some very bad decisions in the past, that her courage and determination to face up to her responsibilities made him decide that she was a girl worth

helped her track her spending and take charge of her finances. She began planning her expenses at the beginning of each month and she now knows where every penny goes. Once she sets her budget and spending goals, the budget takes over and controls her spending. She and her boyfriend got married after each saved $5,000 for a wedding with 220 guests. Her sister made the cake and the catering was done by a friend. They had a low-cost honeymoon in Mexico for only $700 plus airfare. Now Molly is out of debt and saving for a new car to be purchased with cash. The moral of the story is: you can do it if you really want to badly enough and, yes, it’s always worth it. Just ask Tom and Molly.

hanging onto. Unfortunately, her $30,000 salary as a schoolteacher didn’t cover her rent and expenses with enough left over and so she ran up more debt on six credit cards. One day when she realized that she couldn’t even make minimum payments, she had a complete meltdown and called one of her banks in tears. The bank recommended a not-for-profit credit counseling agency and she, like Tom, entered into a five-year debt management program with a single monthly payment of $806. Having nothing left after rent and utilities, she began using the local food pantry and she re-bagged the food so her roommates would think she had shopped at the grocery store. She made friends with the cafeteria staff at school and occasionally was able to bring some leftovers home. Then she moved closer to her family and took four part-time jobs, one of which became full time with a $27,000 salary. With her boyfriend’s help she started using a spreadsheet he drew up, which

First lady’s anti-obesity push prompts change By DARLENE SUPERVILLE and MARY CLARE JALONICK Associated Press WASHINGTON – WalMart is putting special labels on some store-brand products to help shoppers quickly spot healthier items. Millions of schoolchildren are helping themselves to vegetables from salad bars in their lunchrooms, while kids’ meals at Olive Garden and Red Lobster restaurants automatically come with a side of fruit or vegetables and a glass of lowfat milk. The changes put in place by the food industry are in response to the campaign against childhood obesity that Michelle Obama began waging three years ago. More changes are in store. Influencing policy posed more of a challenge for the first lady, and not everyone welcomed her effort, criticizing it as a case of unwanted government intrusion. Still, nutrition advocates and others give her credit for using her clout to help bring a range of interests to the table. They hope the increased awareness she has generated through speeches, her garden and her physical exploits will translate into further reductions in childhood obesity rates long after she leaves the White House. About one-third of U.S. children are overweight or obese, which puts them at increased risk for any number of life-threatening illnesses, including diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease.

While there is evidence of modest declines in childhood obesity rates in some parts of the country, the changes are due largely to steps taken before the first lady launched “Let’s Move” in February 2010. With the program entering its fourth year, Mrs. Obama embarked Wednesday on a two-day promotional tour with stops in Mississippi, Illinois and Missouri. She has been talking up the program on daytime and late-night TV shows, on the radio and in public service announcements with Big Bird. She also plans discussions next week on Google and Twitter. “We’re starting to see some shifts in the trend lines and the data where we’re starting to show some improvement,” the first lady told SiriusXM host B. Smith in an interview broadcast Tuesday. “We’ve been spending a lot of time educating and re-educating families and kids on how to eat, what to eat, how much exercise to get and how to do it in a way that doesn’t completely disrupt someone’s life.” Larry Soler, president and chief executive of the Partnership for a Healthier America, said Mrs. Obama has “been the leader in making the case for the time is now in childhood obesity and everyone has a role to play in overcoming the problem.” The nonpartisan, nonprofit partnership was created as part of “Let’s Move” to work with the private sector and to hold companies accountable for changes

State’s new monthly wage reporting to combat fraud NORTHWEST HERALD CHICAGO – New monthly wage reports will help stop individuals from illegally collecting unemployment insurance benefits while working because officials will have the most up-to-date wage information available, according to the Illinois Department of Employment Security. The new monthly reports also will help prevent fraud in the Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act programs because the up-to-date wage information will more quickly identify those who make too much money to qualify. IDES Director Jay Rowell said this first-in-the-nation effort shows Illinois takes seriously its responsibility to guarantee access to crucial safety-net programs while at the same time protecting taxpayer money and leveraging technology to serve employers and workers in the most costefficient manner possible. “The best way to fight fraud is to prevent it before it starts. These monthly wage reports help do exactly that,” Rowell said in a press release. “This common-sense approach will help every employer because it will lower payroll taxes which will create the flexibility to invest in hiring new workers and that will grow our economy.”

The new monthly wage reports will augment the quarterly wage and contribution reports. Beginning this quarter, the state’s largest companies will be required to move away from paper and file both reports electronically. Although not yet required, businesses of all sizes are encouraged to use electronic filing. Monthly and quarterly wage filing will be done using TaxNet, the IDES online tax-filing program. Employers registered on TaxNet can use their existing account. Other employers can register at https://taxnet.ides.state.il.us. TaxNet will accept a comma separated (.csv) plain ASCII text file for the monthly wage report. Technical details, including a file format guide, are available at www.imonthlyreporting.com Rowell said the changes are part of the state’s SMART Act which used spending reductions, rate cuts and service restrictions to reform Medicaid and make it more financially secure. The act also included the monthly reporting provision to make more informed eligibility determinations for unemployment insurance, Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act. The program will save $100 million dollars each year by preventing improper benefit payments before they begin.

GM selects AT&T for enhanced wireless services NORTHWEST HERALD CHICAGO – AT&T has announced an agreement with OnStar, a subsidiary of General Motors, to wirelessly deliver an enhanced suite of safety, security, diagnostic and infotainment services to most Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles, beginning in 2014 in the U.S. and Canada. The multi-year agreement calls for AT&T to enable millions of GM cars, trucks and crossovers with 4G LTE mobile Internet access, providing the latest wireless technology to power GM’s safety and security services offered by OnStar, as well as a new suite of infotainment services like streaming audio, web access,

applications, and even video for backseat passengers. AT&T also will enable GM’s in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspots and voice-calling services. These enhancements build on OnStar’s existing portfolio of connected services, first introduced in GM vehicles in 1996. “Introducing 4G LTE into GM vehicles is a gamechanging opportunity, and we couldn’t be better positioned to help drive this movement,” said Ralph de la Vega, president and CEO, AT&T Mobility. “We’re working closely with GM to grow the connected car base, and provide unique and relevant services that will improve the connected experience inside automobiles for both drivers and passengers.”

In this July 2012 photo, first lady Michelle Obama addresses school children during a ‘Let’s Move!’ event for about 1,000 American military children and American and British students at the U.S. ambassador’s residence in London, ahead of the 2012 Summer Olympics. they promised to make. Conservatives accused Mrs. Obama of going too far and dictating what people should — and shouldn’t — eat after she played a major behind-the-scenes role in the passage in 2010 of a child nutrition law that required schools to make foods healthier. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the Republican Party’s vice presidential nominee in 2008, once brought cookies to a school and called the first lady’s efforts a “nanny state run amok.” Other leaders in the effort, such as New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, have felt the backlash, too. Last fall, Bloomberg helped enact the nation’s first rule barring restaurants, cafeterias and concession stands from selling

soda and other high-calorie drinks in containers larger than 16 ounces. Despite the criticism, broad public support exists for some of the changes the first lady and the mayor are advocating, according to a recent Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll. More than eight in 10 of those surveyed, 84 percent, support requiring more physical activity in schools, and 83 percent favor government providing people with nutritional guidelines and information about diet and exercise. Seventy percent favor having restaurants put calorie counts on menus, and 75 percent consider overweightness and obesity a serious problem in this country, according to the Nov.

21-Dec. 14 survey by telephone of 1,011 adults. Food industry representatives say Mrs. Obama has influenced their own efforts. Mary Sophos of the Grocery Manufacturers Association, which represents the country’s largest food companies, including General Mills and Kellogg’s, said an industry effort to label the fronts of food packages with nutritional content gained momentum after Mrs. Obama, a mother of two, attended one of their meetings in 2010 and encouraged them to do more. “She’s not trying to point fingers,” Sophos said. “She’s trying to get people to focus on solutions.” A move by the companies signaling willingness to work with Mrs. Obama appears to have paid off as the Obama administration eased off some of the fights it appeared ready to pick four years ago. The Food and Drug Administration has stalled its push to mandate labeling on the front of food packages, saying it is monitoring the industry’s own effort. A rule that would require calorie counts on menus has been delayed as the FDA tries to figure out whom to apply it to. Supermarkets, movie theaters and other retailers have been lobbying to be exempted. The industry also appears to have successfully warded off a move by the Federal Trade Commission to put in place voluntary guidelines for advertising junk food to kids. Directed by Congress, the guidelines would have

discouraged the marketing of certain foods that didn’t meet government-devised nutritional requirements. The administration released draft guidelines in 2011 but didn’t follow up after the industry said they went too far and angry House Republicans summoned an agency official to Capitol Hill to defend them. Besides labeling its store brands, Wal-Mart, the world’s largest retailer, also pledged to cut sodium and added sugars by 25 percent and 10 percent, respectively, by 2015, and remove industrially produced trans fats. Leslie Dach, an executive vice president, said sodium in packaged bread has been cut by 13 percent, and added sugar in refrigerated flavored milk, popular among kids, has been cut by more than 17 percent. He said Wal-Mart shoppers have told the company that eating healthier is important to them. Giving customers what they want is also good for business. New York reported a 5.5 percent decline in obesity rates in kindergarteners through eighth-graders between the 2006-07 and 201011 school years, according a report last fall by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, which studies health policy. In Philadelphia, the decline was 4.7 percent among students in grades K-12 between the 2006-07 and 2009-10 school years, the foundation said. Declines also were reported in California and in Mississippi.

Working blind Fighting limitations as he loses vision By VIRGINIA BLACK South Bend Tribune SOUTH BEND, Ind.– Driving to his company’s Granger office one day, Niel Makielski noticed the telephone poles along the road seemed to be warping as he passed them. The chief of his company’s small maintenance department and a “fix-it” guy all his life, Makielski finished up his work there and then drove to a doctor. Two days later, a retina specialist delivered the grim news: A blood vessel in his right eye was breaking, causing the warping sensation, and his retina was cracking. About a week later, Makielski said to his wife, Myrna, while they were driving, “See that car in front of me? I see two cars stacked on top of themselves.” The retina specialist used a laser procedure to stop the bleeding in the right eye. About a year later, Niel was driving once again when he noticed the vision on his other side was warping, too. “I got to work and I called my wife and I said, ‘My left eye’s going,’ “ Niel said. “He was hysterical, actually,” Myrna adds. “I was crying like a baby,” Niel acknowledges, adding, “I knew what was happening.” It was a little more than a decade ago that Niel Makielski was hit, at the age of 50, with the rarer, “wet” form of

Niel Makielski pauses as he examines his table saw while working in his home wood shop. macular degeneration. Now 61, he joins a growing number of people affected by a malady with no cure that leaves its victims legally blind – and looking for help to go about their daily lives. Dr. Thomas Hauch, a South Bend ophthalmologist who specializes in retinal issues, cites major advances in treatment in the last several years. Now, the “wet” variety of macular degeneration — the quicker, more devastating version, like Niel’s — could be stopped. Since 1982, when he began practicing, Hauch says research has led to more ways to treat all forms of macular degeneration, which is more commonly associated with aging. Treatments include medications injected into the eyes, but even their use is limited, he says, pointing out that the treatments aren’t exactly pleasant, their effects don’t last forever, and they carry some risks of their own. But the doctor is optimistic

that research will continue to help those with macular degeneration. “What I foresee is that there’ll be even newer medicines that can do the job more effectively,” Hauch says. Hauch last treated Makielski in 2004, but he recalls the man’s desire to keep working with his hands even then. “There’s really some underlying fortitude in some of those people,” Hauch says of people who have lost vision. “In a situation like his, if you can do it, go do it.” Hauch filled out a questionnaire in 2004 from Makielski’s employer, South Bend Clinic, that asked about certain job activities and how Makielski’s vision would affect his ability to perform those duties. Hauch marked that Makielski could no longer drive or use a blow torch but he could perform all other activities, such as using power tools or other tools “as long as he uses common knowledge safety precautions.” And this was added at the bottom: “Dr. Hauch believes in allowing his patients to maintain employment as long as he/she is able.” But Makielski, left with only peripheral vision that has gradually shrunk over the years and will eventually fade to nothing, says he’s struggling to persuade his employer he still has skills. Niel Makielski says he

He says the manager who replaced him has been unaccommodating and has him merely painting around the growing clinic. Once, after painting 14 rooms himself, Makielski says, he was disciplined for a total of six paint drops found on the linoleum floor. A co-worker, who asked to not be identified for fear of losing his job, says he’s seen Makielski be unfairly reprimanded. “I’ve worked with Niel on many occasions on many proj-

ects, and he does good work,” the co-worker says. “He does as well as somebody that could see. They’re looking at Niel as a liability instead of an asset. ... A lot of people would be depressed, but he tries to continue on with life.” The Makielskis filed a complaint several weeks ago with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The investigator closed the case, citing the agency could not conclude there were violations but “does not certify that the respondent is in compliance with the statutes.” Paul Meyer, CEO of South Bend Clinic, said this in a statement: “I cannot speak to personal employee and employment matters as that would violate the employee’s rights to privacy. ... “We have and will continue to employ individuals with any manner of physical

and developmental disabilities, and accommodate their unique needs and welcome their contributions. We are proud of our track record in that regard. As a health care institution we deal with healthy, infirm, and disabled individuals daily, as that is our mission.” Julia Studebaker is a blind rehabilitation teacher who helps those with low vision to cope at home and work. Her agency, CompassPointes, also facilitates a monthly support group for those with vision issues. But Studebaker’s experience is more than just academic: Her husband, William, died at the age of 77 after living most of his life with multiple sclerosis, much of those years legally blind. Learning to accommodate his vision issues was instructive, she says.

Target’s 4Q profit dips 2 pct. The Associated Press MINNEAPOLIS – Target’s Neiman Marcus collaboration did not turn out to be a holiday gift to the retailer. The No. 2 discount chain reported fiscal fourth-quarter net income dipped 2 percent as it dealt with intense competition during the crucial holiday season. Still, the company’s forecast for 2013 indicated it may beat many analysts’ expectations. “We’re pleased with Target’s fourth quarter performance, particularly in the face of a highly promotional retail environment and continued consumer uncertainty,” Chairman, President and CEO Gregg Steinhafel said in a statement. But investors were disappointed in the results, sending shares down almost 2 percent in morning trading. Thebig-boxretailer,known for its cheap but trendy merchandise, had high hopes for the collection of gifts made in partnership with luxury department store Neiman Marcus. The pair of retailers rolled the line of gifts from 24 designers, including Oscar de la Renta and Diane von

Furstenberg, on Dec. 1. But just weeks later Target was offering big discounts – up to 75 percent off – to clear the shelves of unsold merchandise. Also, during the critical shopping months of November and December Target embraced a number of different strategies, like matching the price of online competitors such as Amazon.com, Walmart.com, Bestbuy.com and Toysrus.com. It was an attempt to combat “showrooming,” in which people use smartphones while they’re in stores to look for cheaper prices online. But the initiatives did not spur customers to buy more during the holiday shopping period, which is critical for retailers, as it can make up as much as 40 percent of their annual revenue. The number of transactions fell 1 percent during the quarter, although the amount spent per transaction rose 1.4 percent. The company said its gross margin – the percentage of each dollar in revenue made that a company actually keeps – declined during the quarter due to holiday markdowns.

8IN BRIEF Hostess sale of Wonder bread nears completion

Orders jump for key longlasting factory goods

NEW YORK – Wonder bread is one step closer to getting a new owner. A person familiar with the situation who requested anonymity because the auction process is private says there will be no competing offers Thursday to a bid by Flowers Foods to buy several bread brands from Hostess. The $360 million bid by Flowers also includes Nature’s Pride, Butternut, Home Pride and Merita breads. An auction will still be held for a separate $30 million bid by Flowers for Beefsteak. Any sales require approval by a bankruptcy court. Flowers Foods, based in Thomasville, Ga., makes Tastykakes and bread brands including Nature’s Own and Cobblestone Mill. Hostess is also holding separate auctions for its snack cakes, which include Twinkies. Hostess said late last year it would go out of business.

WASHINGTON – Orders for U.S. factory goods that signal business investment plans jumped last month by the most in more than a year, suggesting companies are confident about their business prospects. The Commerce Department said Wednesday that orders for so-called core capital goods, which include industrial machinery, construction equipment and computers, rose 6.3 percent in January from December. A sharp fall in demand for commercial aircraft caused overall durable goods orders to drop 5.2 percent, the first decline since August. Orders for commercial aircraft are volatile from month to month and can cause large swings in the overall figure. Boeing reported orders for only two planes in January, down from 183 in December.

Ryland Homes going strong in area counties last fall. Less than a year ago, in the spring of 2012, Lakewood Crossing opened in Hampshire. “Cedar Grove just reopened and already we have a buyer for a new home there,” Ryland Homes vice president of marketing Rebekka Koehl said. Ashton Pointe, Ingham Park and the Fields of Shorewood were begun by other builders, who suffered financial reverses with the 2008 collapse of the economy. Ryland rode to Ashton Pointe’s rescue with plans to complete the community of move-up buyers. “It gives me a good feeling

Jerry Kuyper McHENRY COUNTY – Optimism is the order of the day for Ryland Homes. Five communities have reopened or have been started anew in the areas north and west of Chicago. Ashton Pointe in Crystal Lake reopened this year as did Cedar Grove in Elgin. The Talamore development in Huntley now has a new neighborhood called Andare. Another new community, Ingham Park in Aurora, opened

to help revive a neighborhood that has been sitting idle.” Ryland division president John Carroll said. He noted it helped add value to homes of current residents and benefited the municipality with an increased tax base as well as activity for city officials such as building inspectors. Plus it offers employment for workers in the construction trades. Ashton Pointe is next to the Metra Station which adds to its allure for commuters. Ryland will feature housing offering 2,405 to 3,800 square feet of living space priced from $245,990 to $335,990.

• BUILDER Continued from page F1 For information, call Kristen Kelly at 815-444-0809 or visit Kristen.kelly@ryland. com. Ryland has been at Talamore for years but the idea of Andare is new. “We took an area of Talamore that had been planned as townhouses and converted it to an active-adult-single-family home community,” Carroll said. Ryland has room for 78 ranch-style houses at Andare. Square footage ranges from 1,224 to 1,880 and are priced accordingly from $154,990 to $209,990. There are six floor plans from which to choose. They have two to three bedrooms and each has two bathrooms and a two-car garage. The target market is adults 55 years of age and older. “This age group tends to have the most significant equity in their homes and the most flexibility in their selling price,” Carroll said of potential buyers. Most of them are able to sell an existing house and want to downsize into a ranch. “The active-adult market will continue to remain strong in the Chicago area for years to come,” Carroll said. Andare residents will have access to an 8,000 square foot clubhouse and swimming pool of Olympic proportions featuring an18-foot water slide, kid’s pool, and spray and play area. They also have access to a fishing pond, and an outdoor pavilion with fireplace and picnic tables. They share these amenties with other owners in the master-planned Talamore subdivision. Although there will be no children living at Andare, visiting grandchildren will be allowed to use the pool and the other Talamore amenities. Carroll said prospective buyers like the idea of children near Andare. “We are getting lots of positive feedback on this,” he said. “They like the idea that the community is not entirely devoid of children.” For information, call Jayne Decker at (224) 356-2200. Ingham Park at the intersection of E. Galena Boulevard and Gordon Road in Aurora is, like Ashton Pointe, a restart community. Currently there are seven house designs. All have four bedrooms, three-car garages, basements and nine-foot firstfloor ceilings. Baths range from two and one-half to four. Prices range from $224,990 to $306,990 for homes ranging from 2,257 to 3,800 square feet of living space. According to Ingham Park salesman Demetrios Danigeles, there is a grand opening special offering limited-time savings on the first five homes sold. Three of those have been spoken for leaving two at promotional pricing. “The new model is the Campton, a contemporary home that falls in the middle of our home offerings at 2,612 square feet,” added Danigeles. Depending on the home design selected, features at Ingham Park can include kitchen pantries, Flex Rooms, first floor studies (with a possible in-law suite option), two-story foyers, lofts and a dual access staircase. Available options include a Garden Bath that features a stand-alone shower and an oversized soaker tub. “We have included so many popular features into the homes at Ingham Park that others offer as options,” added Danigeles. Carroll commented on Ryland’s effort to pick up communities abandoned by former developers. “There were many more builders in the Chicago market five or six years ago than there are today and many of them had started subdivisions they were unable to complete. The remaining builders are slowly working through these communities, buying them, restarting them and completing them but that will take time,” Carroll said. Sales models, such as at Ashton Pointe, have electronic equipment to help buyers choose. For example, a furnished model can be brought up on a giant screen via Smart Technology. “It is pretty interesting as models are on a giant screen with updated overviews and maps of the community. It is a unique tool to interact with as there is a split screen and people can move designs around and decorate and trim instantly to see what their new home could look like. We have two touch-screen visuals to play with floor plans and designs. Interactive floor plan layouts can be adapted at the push of a button,” Koehl said. “Home shoppers receive ideas for furniture placement on home layouts and up-tothe minute information on the availability of sites or homes available for immediate move-in. Ryland pays close attention to buyer feedback, examining every aspect of the home, and regularly adapting floor plans to provide what buyers truly want, “ Koehl added. “For example, we introduced a new kitchen design that relocates the microwave from above the stove to a built-in wall location above an oven to accommodate a sleek built-in hood and fan above the stove, providing a dramatic focal point in the kitchen.” “We also have listened and responded to a frequent comment from home shoppers. Secondary bedrooms need to provide space for their children’s active lifestyles. At Ingham Park and our other new communities (Ashton Pointe) we have enlarged the secondary bedrooms, and located windows and closets to create more functional spaces,” Koehl said. With 17 communities in the Chicago area, Ryland Homes is one of the largest subdivision developers.

By PHILLIP ALDER Newspaper Enterprise Association

Elvis Stojko, a Canadian igure skater who won three world championships, said, “I had the strength and the inesse there and put it all together.” Bridge declarers (and sometimes defenders) with high-card strength often put together tricks with inesses. There is rarely a deal without at least one inesse. However, occasionally a suit combination comes along that looks like a inesse, but isn’t. Which applies in this deal -- inesse or look-alike non-inesse? South is in three notrump. West leads the heart queen. What should declarer do? Would the best line change if South’s clubs were Q-J-9-2? When in no-trump, always start by counting your top tricks, your instant winners. Here South has seven: four spades, two hearts and one club. So, if he can rake in three club tricks, he will make his contract. Any declarer who thinks that club suit is a inessing combination will take the irst trick with his heart king (he does not want to risk a diamond shift) and run the club queen. However, when East turns up with

four clubs, three no-trump must fail. Instead, South should play a low club to dummy’s ace and return a club toward his queen-jack. East will probably play low. Then declarer, after winning with his club queen, returns to dummy with a spade and leads another club to gain that third club trick. Interestingly, that is still the right approach even with ace-fourth opposite queen-jack-nine-fourth. Running the queen loses when East has a singleton king. Lead toward the hand with the two honors.

CROSSWORD

HOROSCOPE

▲ ▲

TODAY - The aspects indicate that greater stabilization in your financial affairs will be taking place in the year ahead. Chances are if it hasn’t already started, you’ll soon be entering a growth pattern that will prove very interesting. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Even though any rewards you reap will be due more to the efforts of others than your own, your prospects look exceptionally good. Later, you’ll find a way to balance the account. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -- Do your best to keep all of your involvements in good, proper balance. Don’t attempt to take on more than you can manage, but by the same token, don’t idle your time away, either. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- When working on something you deem to be a labor of love, positive results are inevitable. Without question, the secret to your success is enjoying what you are doing. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- Seek out activities devoid of competition that bring you together with friends whose company you enjoy. You need to relax, not vie with rivals. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- This could a particularly good time to invite friends over to your place for a little tete-a-tete. Most of the time, these impromptu get-togethers turn out great. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- You’re likely to be exceptionally competent with projects that are more mental than physical in nature. You won’t find a better day to rest your muscle and give your brain a workout. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -- Material increases are indicated if you operate along traditional lines. However, the picture could suddenly change if out of the blue, you decide to take a risk on something. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -- Although you have excellent leadership qualities, they will remain dormant unless there is something specific that you decide to do. Whatever your aim, it will require tact and grace. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- You could find yourself involved in something that affects others more than you. Rather than get deeply drawn in, keep a safe and respectful distance. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- You have a wonderful faculty of being able to enjoy yourself regardless of the hand that is dealt you. You’ll capitalize on this gift in two separate situations. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Even though you might not be aware of it, you are apt to be the center of attention in at least one gathering. It’ll be your convivial conduct that enhances these conditions. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- One of your best assets is being able to make friends with people from all walks of life. This wonderful quality will be in good working order -- use it to your advantage.

FOOD & DRINK Coffee has become my new favorite ingredient when roasting meat. It’s an effortless way to add gobs of flavor to whatever I am making. All I do is add whole coffee beans to whatever spice blend I am using as a wet or dry rub, then grind it to a powder and apply to the meat. The coffee provides deep, rich flavors with just a hint of acid. It’s a combination that works wonders for roasted meat.

Nicholas Hoult stars in “Jack the Giant Slayer.” Photo provided

By JEFFREY WESTHOFF If not for its PG-13 rating, “Jack the Giant Slayer” would be an old-fashioned, family oriented fantasy adventure, the type that local television stations used to run Sunday afternoons. Parents wondering if this is appropriate viewing for their children should take the PG-13 under advisement. The main reason for the rating is a particularly grotesque, almost comical, death of a giant near the end of the film, and like almost all of the film’s violence, it is rendered in CGI. The rating aside, Bryan Singer confidently captures the earnest spirit of mildly scary family features such as “Jason and the Argonauts” and “The Seventh Voyage of VIDEO Sinbad.” Those classics REVIEW had Ray Harryhausen’s Scan this code to stop-motion creatures, watch Jeff’s video and “Jack” has CGI review of “Jack the giants. The giants aren’t Giant Slayer” or especially realistic, watch at PlanitNorthwest.com but neither were the skeletons in “Jason,” and 50-plus years on, that fight at the end remains a thrilling special effects sequence. Nicholas Hoult, recently seen as an undead Romeo in “Warm Bodies,” plays the title role, which is much more a retelling of “Jack and the Beanstalk” than “Jack the Giant Slayer.” The confusion is understandable. Both are old English folk tales involving a hero named Jack and giants, and Mickey Mouse did star in versions of both. But “Jack and the Beanstalk” sounds like a kids movie, and “Jack the Giant Slayer” sounds like an action movie, so now you know why the producers picked its title. The script takes the beanstalk legend and layers in some palace intrigue and a Disney-like subplot about a runaway princess (Eleanor Tomlinson) who falls in love with peasant boy Jack. The princess, Eleanor, has been betrothed to a much older suitor, Roderick. We know he is a conniving weasel because he is played by Stanley Tucci with an arch English accent. The kind-hearted king (Ian McShane) wishes his daughter would behave, but she keeps disguising herself as a commoner and running off. A storm arises during one of her

“Jack the Giant Slayer”

HHH

STARRING: Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci

PLOT: After farm boy Jack (Hoult) trades the family horse for some magic beans, he accidentally grows a towering beanstalk that could reignite an ancient war between men and giants. He joins a team of brave knights to climb the beanstalk and rescue a beautiful princess (Tomlinson) from the hungry giants. RATED: PG-13 for intense sequences of fantasy action violence, some frightening images and brief language RUNNING TIME: 1 hour, 54 minutes

escapades, so the princess seeks refuge in the shanty home of Jack, who recently acquired some “special” beans in a transaction familiar from the fairy tale. Jack’s infuriated uncle already has thrown away the beans, and one has settled beneath the house. When rain water activates the legume, a towering stalk carries the cabin into the sky, taking the princess with it. In this telling of the tale, a war between men and giants occurred generations earlier, so everyone in the kingdom already knows about magic beanstalks and the land of giants above the clouds (which makes it curious that Jack doesn’t suspect the offer of “special” beans). The king dispatches his finest soldiers to climb the beanstalk and save his daughter from the hungry giants. Jack and the scheming Roderick, who knows a few secrets about the giants, tag along because otherwise there wouldn’t be a movie. From this point on, “Jack” plays out like the original “Star Wars” in ren faire costume. To save a princess, a farm boy goes on a perilous mission led by a venerable knight played by genuine Obi Wan Kenobi Ewan McGregor, who actually says, “I’m getting an awfully bad feeling about this.” The “awfully” must have been thrown in to prevent George Lucas from suing for plagiarism. “Jack” may not be original, but it is

fun. These days, too many makers of big-budget action movies seem so embarrassed by their material, they try to prove there are above it – and the audience – with a snarky attitude. “Jack” is not without a sense of humor, but Singer takes the story at face value, magic beans and all, and the cast plays it straight. I enjoyed how McGregor casually says, “Tally ho,” before leaping into action. Holt and Tomlinson are charming as the young heroes, and Tomlinson looks dynamite when she dons Joan of Arc armor toward the end. The giants are fearsome villains, with Bill Nighy playing their two-headed leader (a two-headed giant is one of the few elements from the “Giant Slayer” legend). The giants eventually invade the smaller kingdom below, which leads to much big action at the end. Too much, probably. The problem with CGI is that when kingdoms and creatures can be whipped up and manipulated inside a computer, filmmakers have no limitations! except for money, and studios still are willing to pour a fortune into these things. Go back 20 years, and when directors orchestrated action-packed finales, they had to use stunt performers, model buildings and soundstages – elements with physical limitations. This forced filmmakers to focus their storytelling into specific action beats. With CGI, you get the feeling filmmakers keep telling the programmers, “And it would be cool if one of the giants ripped the sails off a windmill and threw them like a Frisbee!” They keep adding, pushing the climax past the point where the viewer gets exhausted. “Jack” is nearly two hours long, which is merciful by the standards of other blockbusters, but it is at least 10 minutes too long. For all that, “Jack the Giant Slayer” is Singer’s best film since the second “XMen” movie. It is charming, exciting and unashamed of its corny virtues. Someday, it will go down easy on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

MAGIC MIC Ventriloquist Rumba joins magicians, illusionists and comics on stage for 11th annual ‘Nothin’ Up My Sleeve’ By JAMI KUNZER • jkunzer@shawmedia.com imilar to the way organizers describe the upcoming magic show, “Nothin’ Up My Sleeve,” a conversation with Bob Rumba, ventriloquist and the show’s emcee, is non-stop. He reflects on elevator music – how it’s gone from classical to ’80s. “I’m wondering when we get really old if I’ll have to rap,” he said. He moves on to a story about the how-to video he filmed on ventriloquism. It’s been sold worldwide, including China, where he once spoke with someone at a ventriloquism convention who’d purchased it. “I shot that, and I don’t think I’ve ever watched it,” he told the woman. Relaying the conversation with a Chinese accent, Rumba said she responded, “You should. It be good for you. It easy to understand.” And, of course, he talks about “Nothin’ Up My Sleeve,” scheduled for 7 p.m. March 9 at the Raue Center for the Arts in Crystal Lake. An 11th-annual fundraiser for the Raue, the show is believed to be one of the longestrunning annual magic events ever produced. “I don’t know that Crystal Lake realizes that nobody else has a show like that,” Rumba said. This year’s show includes six routines, with Rumba, a Midwest-based ventriloquist, comic and Hollywood-lookalike (Groucho Marx, Charlie Chaplin, Barney Fife), entertaining the crowd between acts. Rumba lived in the Chicago area for roughly 30 years and has performed at the Raue before. He’ll also perform there March 16 as part of a Celebrate St. Patty’s event. He’s also appeared on “America’s Funniest People” and “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” among numerous television shows, and done a variety of television commercials, such as McDonald’s, Sunkist, Nine Lives and United Airlines. At “Nothin’ Up My Sleeve,” he’ll introduce his goose bodyguard. Other people in show business have security guards or guard dogs. He has a goose. “Geese can be mean,” he said. “I have this goose that guards me so nothing will happen. He usually gets mad and I get beat up by the goose. ... I think it’s funny.” As for his famous portrayal of Groucho (the legendary Marx brother comedian and film star), he said his mother proved to him with a picture she dug out that he’s been doing the act since age 5. “I’m sad that not as many people know who he is now,” he said. “(Ventriloquism) is a form of magic, even though people don’t think of it as magic,” he said. “It’s a magical thing to be able to make a character come alive.” Rumba is very aware of what perhaps can be considered the “ventriloquism of the future,” having provided a couple gags to ventriloquist John Pizzi, who appeared on “America’s Got Talent” with an app that allowed him to manipulate photographs of people by making them talk. Pizzi gave him the app, as well, making him one of only a few who have

Nino Cruz co-produces. Other acts include Shayna Reed, Benjamin Barnes, Jania Taylor and Bob Higa. “It’s just a big montage of anything and everything,” Cruz said. “They’re all new acts. This year is totally different.” More details would give away the surprises. But be prepared for a Cruz and Chelius illusion in which one of them disappears and reappears as the other. Another act will challenge an audience member to lift a $100 bill. “If they can lift it, they can keep it,” Cruz said. “I can’t give it away, but there are no strings attached. It’s not going to be stuck to the ground. Let’s see if they can do it.” Taylor and Reed are manipulators, while Higa does stand-up with illusions. Dan Neilson will be entertaining audience members in the lobby before the show. “We’re always bringing something bigger and better,” Cruz said.

Get schooled on The University By JAMI KUNZER jkunzer@shawmedia.com

t’s a good thing their parents swapped phone numbers after a talent show about six years ago. Both 18-year-old Ryan Lammers of Cary, a guitarist, and 17-year-old Dean Sinclair of McHenry, a drummer, had competed separately in the contest. “You two should jam,” the judges told them. They did, and discovered a mutual love of music and determination to take their band as far as they could go. With the addition of 19-year-old Cale Singleton of Cary and 18-year-old John Benedeck of McHenry about two years ago, the band eventually became The University. Described as alternative, the band has performed at numerous festivals, including Fiesta Days in McHenry and the St. Helen Carnival in Chicago. The University won the Battle of the Bands at Heritage Fest in West Dundee, and will open for the headlining act at the festival this September. On April 27, The University will perform as part of a music festival at McHenry West High School. They’ve recorded an EP, “Red/Blue,” available through their Facebook page at facebook.com/universityband. “We came up with a little comparison,” Lammers said. “We’re kind of like a

Singleton plays bass guitar and sings lead on most songs, while Benedeck plays keyboard. All four sing. And all four have pursued music since a young age. “I’ve been playing the pots and pans since birth, but I started taking lessons when I was six years old,” Sinclair said.

He’s a fan of bands from Sweden, such as The Royal Concept and In Flames. Lammers began performing in second grade. “I started listening to The Beatles and I was like, ‘I want to play guitar,’” he said. “I would love to keep going with this and the same with all of us. We all want to keep up with the music. It’s a part of us.” “Hire us,” Sinclair added with a laugh. “We’re a group of good guys. We like to have fun, and the music we play is pretty fun.”

Pissed Jeans

“Honeys” HH 1/2 If you can get past the goofy name, Pennsylvania-based hardcore/noise rock outfit Pissed Jeans is pretty damn good at what it does. And what is that, you ask? It makes sludgy guitars and thunderous drums into more than just noise. “Honeys” may be a sweet album title, but this release is anything but. “Cat House” plows ahead with reckless abandon as Matt Korvette screams over the jackhammer-like music. Korvette’s lyrics are mostly observational and seem as though they were written at the last moment. That, at times, leads to some cornball material. “Stick figure family on the back of your car. You know I find that to be rude, walking around like you own the place. Must think you’re some kind of dude,” he sings on “Cafeteria Food.” While some of the words seem hastily thrown together, other places they do a better job touching on current issues. “You’re Different (In Person),” for example, is Korvette’s take on social media.” “Honeys” is, at the very least, a great hardcore album, but will probably fail to catch on outside the genre.

Swingin’ Utters

“Poorly Formed” HH 1/2 The Swingin’ Utters have always been a bit of a throwback when compared with other modern-day punk bands. It could probably pass off a cover of The Dead Milkmen’s “Punk Rock Girl” as its own song to those less-educated in the genre. “Poorly Formed” should sound familiar to Swingin’ Utters fans as it is another solid album from the band. “The Librarians Are Hiding Something,” “The Fake Rat of Dave Navarro” and others on this album are vintage Swingin’ Utters. The band also has been known to sprinkle some folk into its punk. We get that, too, on “I’m A Little Bit Country,” although the band has been much better using that gimmick in the past. “Poorly Formed” isn’t the best Swingin’ Utters (see its diverse 2000 selt-titled effort), but it certainly isn’t its worst either.

FEATURED RELEASE Atoms For Peace “AMOK” H 1/2

“AMOK” is the debut album from Atoms For Peace, but it would be understandable if you confused it with another solo album from Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke. The group effort, from a not-quite super group featuring Yorke, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, some guy who played drums for Beck and R.E.M. and another guy from Brazil who plays a bunch of instruments, closely follows what the Radiohead leader did on his 2006 solo outing, “The Eraser.” And while it may sound close to that album, it’s definitely not as good as that album. And it’s not like “The Eraser” was that good of an album to begin with. But “AMOK” fails to go anywhere, spinning its tires in puddles of blips, clicks and other sounds. Yorke’s soothing vocal delivery doesn’t do much to help keep “Default” from being a bunch of ambient noise. At least the song sounds kind of cool when listening through headphones. Producer Nigel Godrich, who has received credit for his work on most of Radiohead’s biggest albums, does a good job seamlessly layering several sounds. At the same time, his efforts also are a burden on this album as it becomes way too predictable. “Judge Jury and Executioner,” like several other songs on “AMOK,” is in desperate need of some excitement. Yorke was able to accomplish that in some spots on “The Eraser,” but for some reason, can’t quite match it here. No matter what musicians are along for the ride, “AMOK” comes off as a watered-down Yorke solo album.

Sony’s rascally raccoon Sly Cooper returns By LOU KESTEN The Associated Press It’s been seven years since ring-tailed master thief Sly Cooper has headlined a video game – about three times the lifespan of a typical wild raccoon. The guy’s been on Sony’s bench since his creators, Sucker Punch Productions, moved on to the “InFamous” series, so you could forgive him if his skills are rusty. Fortunately, a second studio called Sanzaru Games has rescued the rascally raccoon from a life of knocking over garbage cans. “Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time” (Sony, for the PlayStation 3, $39.99; Vita, $29.99) finds him chilling out in Paris, until he discovers pages are disappearing from his prized family history, the “Thievius Raccoonus.” The Paris prologue, a strictly linear sequence that feels like too many other generic platform games that have been released during Sly’s hiatus, gets

“Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time”

HH 1/2

Platforms: PlayStation 3, Vita

“Thieves in Time” off to a sluggish start. But once Sly and his pals – Bentley, the techie turtle, and Murray, the two-fisted hippo – start traveling back through time, the action gets much livelier. Each stop in the time machine introduces a series of challenges that borrow elements from, seemingly, the entire history of video games. There are shooting galleries, stealth sequences, mine-cart races, rhythm games – and, of course, the core of the funny-animal genre: running, jumping and climbing across 3D worlds. That’s a lot to cram into one game, and some missions work better than others. I found Murray’s slugfests tedious – he moves like, well, a hippo – but

enjoyed the two-dimensional shoot’em-ups that Bentley uses to hack into enemy computers. But “Thieves in Time” soars when it allows the nimble Sly to do what he does best: skittering up drainpipes, scampering across power lines, bouncing across rooftops. To get the most out of the game, you should take breaks from its main story missions to search for the treasures scattered throughout its well-designed, semi-open worlds. The journey takes the gang to the Wild West, feudal Japan and beyond, all the way back to the Ice Age. Sly’s ancestors, like gunslinger Tennessee Cooper, ninja Rioichi Cooper and the prehistoric “Bob” Cooper, are charming, though a few of the villains veer dangerously close to offensive ethnic stereotypes. “Thieves in Time” doesn’t break new ground, but it does serve as a lively affectionate tribute to a genre that once dominated the video-game world. I hope it isn’t the last we’ve seen of Sly.
