Cold case recap deemed inadequate ‘48 Hours’ episode on McCullough trial disappoints families involved By JEFF ENGELHARDT jengelhardt@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – Charles Ridulph and his family hoped CBS’ “48 Hours” special on a 55-year-old cold case would banish any question of Jack D. McCullough’s guilt. The special, called “Cold as Ice,” followed McCullough’s conviction last year for murdering Charles Ridulph’s sister, 7-year-old Maria, in December 1957. She disappeared after a man named Johnny approached her

and a friend, Kathy Chapman, playing outside. Chapman went inside to get mittens and when she returned, Maria and Johnny were gone. Instead, Charles Ridulph said, the show focused more on the alleged rape of McCullough’s half sister Jack D. – a charge on which McCullough McCullough was cleared – before posing the possibility McCullough was actually guilty

of the rape and not of the murder for which he was convicted. “I must say that my sister Pat and I were very disappointed in the program, but perhaps we were just looking for too much,” Charles Ridulph said. “A one-hour program could not possibly accomplish all that we were looking for.” The Nielsen live plus same day ratings indicate an average of 5.46 million viewers tuned in for the special, said Richard Huff, CBS News’ executive director of communica-

tions. The program included interviews with McCullough, those most closely involved with the case and witnesses who testified at the trial, but Ridulph said the show failed to lay out the evidence that establishes McCullough’s guilt. He said the program failed to explain McCullough’s mother’s deathbed confession that indicated her son could have committed the crime,

DeKalb PROPOSALS KINDLE UNCERTAINTY reviews policing strategy By DAVID THOMAS dthomas@shawmedia.com DeKALB – DeKalb aldermen expressed support for the different efforts police officers and other city officials have taken to reduce crime in the city. Mayor Kris Povlsen said in an interview after Monday’s meeting that the different proactive policing measures – the administrative tow and the new housing bureau – were necessary. “We do know there are people coming here into this community or live in this community really don’t have the best interests of the community in mind,” Povlsen said. “I was impressed with the fact that, when people are committing crimes... we have the ability to tow their cars.” In the past 42 days, DeKalb police have towed 78 vehicles that were Gene Lowery connected to illegal activity of some Police chief kind, said Police Chief Gene Lowery. “We aren’t going out and saying, ‘Let’s tow somebody,’ ” he said. Out of those 78 tows, Lowery said the fines for at least 60 cars have been paid outright. Another 12 cars have not been claimed by their owners. Not everyone is a fan of the towing ordinance. Donald Henderson, director of Students’ Legal Assistance at Northern Illinois University, said he had a number of issues with the administrative tow during his comments to the City Council. Henderson said there’s no policy statement connected with the ordinance and as to why the fine for these kinds of tows are set at $500. “Is this revenue?” Henderson said to the council. “If it is, let’s say so.” City Attorney Dean Frieders said in an interview after the meeting that the ordinance is not about revenue. “[Other communities] experience an appreciable decrease in the type of crimes this ordinance is addressing,” Frieders said.

Higher minimum wage could hurt some employees By STEPHANIE HICKMAN shickman@shawmedia.com Todd Hendrey hopes he doesn’t have to raise the price of candy at The Confectionary. But with the recent proposals by Gov. Pat Quinn and President Barack Obama to raise the minimum wage nationally and statewide, Hendrey may need to make some adjustments to his business. “With the economy the way it

is, it’s going to be tough,” he said. In his State of the Union address Feb. 12, Obama suggested increasing the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $9 an hour. Quinn also proposed an increase in his State of the State address Feb. 6, in which Illinois’ minimum wage would go from $8.25 to $10 an hour. If the minimum wage is increased, Hendrey said he and his wife, Betsy, hope to keep their

business running as usual without making any major changes, such as reducing staff. They have locations at 149 N. Second St. in DeKalb and 235 W. State St. in Sycamore. “As long as I can financially do it, I would keep people on,” he said. “People have to feed their families.” DeKalb Chamber of Commerce

Illinois settles SEC fraud charge over pensions By JOHN O’CONNOR The Associated Press SPRINGFIELD – Federal authorities announced Monday that Illinois has agreed to settle a securities-fraud charge that accused the state of misleading investors about the financial health of its public-employee pension systems, which are now $96.7 billion short of what’s needed to cover promised retirement benefits. In a cease-and-desist order issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission, Gov. Pat Quinn’s administration admitted no wrong-

doing in the way state officials borrowed money to pay pension obligations through $2.2 billion in municipal bond sales from 2005 to early 2009. The SEC began its investigation in September 2010, shortly after signing an agreement with New Gov. Pat Jersey over similar Quinn pension disclosures. Quinn’s assistant budget director, Abdon Pallasch, said the governor began making changes before the investigation started and that the

SEC agreed his office cooperated fully in its review. Quinn, a Democrat, took office in January 2009. The charge revolves around how well Illinois officials publicized their handling of seriously underfunded public-employee pension accounts. Quinn and the Legislature say they have made finding a solution this spring their priority. The SEC alleged that the state made misleading statements about how much pension reforms would save or that it omitted statements about the full impact of underfunding problems. “The state failed to disclose the

effect of its unfunded pension systems on the state’s ability to manage other [spending] obligations,” the SEC order said. “The state also did not inform investors that rising pension costs could continue to affect its ability to satisfy its commitments in the future.” The SEC reported that Illinois has taken several steps to improve the situation, including using attorneys devoted to disclosure, expanding exposition in the pension section of bond-sale documents, and establishing formal disclosure

8 TODAY’S TALKER

Cardinals count down to papal election By NICOLE WINFIELD The Associated Press VATICAN CITY – Cardinals enter the Sistine Chapel today to elect the next pope amid more upheaval and uncertainty than the Catholic Church has seen in decades: There’s no front-runner, no indication how long voting will last and no sense that a single man has what it takes to fix the church’s many problems. On the eve of the vote, cardinals offered wildly different assessments of what they’re looking for in a pope and how close they are to a decision. It was evidence that Benedict XVI’s surprise resignation has continued to destabilize the church leadership and that his final appeal for unity may go unheeded, at least in the early rounds of voting. Still, the buzz in the papal stakes swirled around Cardinal Angelo Scola, an Italian seen as favored by cardinals hoping to shake up the powerful Vatican bureaucracy, and Brazilian Cardinal Odilo Scherer, a favorite of Vatican-based insiders intent on preserving the status quo. Cardinals held their final closeddoor debate Monday over whether the church needs more of a manager to clean up the Vatican’s bureaucratic mess or a pastor to inspire the 1.2 bil-

“This is a great historical moment but we have got to do it properly, and I think that’s why there isn’t a real rush to get into things.” Cardinal Wilfrid Fox Napier From South Africa lion faithful in times of crisis. The fact that not everyone got a chance to speak was a clear indication that there’s still unfinished business going into the first round of voting. “This is a great historical moment but we have got to do it properly, and I think that’s why there isn’t a real rush to get into things,” Cardinal Wilfrid Fox Napier from South Africa said as he left the session Monday. None of that has prevented a storm of chatter over who’s ahead in the race. Scola is affable and Italian, but not from the Italian-centric Vatican bureaucracy called the Curia. That gives him clout with those seeking to reform the nerve center of the Catholic Church that has been discredited by revelations of leaks and complaints from cardinals in the field that Rome is inefficient and unresponsive to their needs.

Scherer seems to be favored by Latin Americans and the Curia. The Brazilian has a solid handle on the Vatican’s finances, sitting on the governing commission of the Vatican bank, the Institute for Religious Works, as well as the Holy See’s main budget committee. As a non-Italian, the archbishop of Sao Paolo would be expected to name an Italian as secretary of state – the Vatican No. 2 who runs day-to-day affairs at the Holy See – another plus for Vatican-based cardinals who would want one of their own running the shop. The pastoral camp seems to be focusing on two Americans, New York archbishop Timothy Dolan and Boston archbishop Sean O’Malley. Neither has Vatican experience. Dolan has admitted his Italian isn’t strong – seen as a handicap for a job in which the lingua franca of day-to-day work is Italian. Canadian Cardinal Marc Ouellet is well-known and well-respected by many cardinals, stemming from his job at the important Vatican office that vets bishop appointments; less well known is that Ouellet has a lovely voice and is known to belt out French folk songs on occasion. If the leading names fail to reach the 77 votes required for victory in the first few rounds of balloting, any number of surprise names could come to the fore as alternatives.

By FOSTER KLUG and HYUNG–JIN KIM The Associated Press SEOUL, South Korea – A state-run newspaper in North Korea said Monday the communist country had carried out a threat to cancel the 1953 armistice that ended the Korean War, after days of increased tensions over its latest nuclear test. A U.N. spokesman said later in the day, however, that North Korea cannot unilaterally dissolve the armistice. North Korea also followed through on another promise: It shut down a Red Cross hotline that North and South Korea used for general communication and to discuss aid shipments and separated families’ reunions. Enraged over the South’s current joint military drills with the United States and last week’s U.N. sanctions imposed on Pyongyang for its Feb. 12 nuclear test, North Korea has piled threat on top of threat, including a vow to launch a nuclear strike on the U.S. Seoul has responded with tough talk of its own and has placed its troops on high alert. Tensions on the divided peninsula have reached their highest level since North Korea rained artillery shells on a South Korean island in 2010. The North Korean government made no formal announcement on its repeated threats to scrap the 60-yearold armistice, but the country’s main newspaper, Rodong Sinmun, reported that the armistice was nullified Monday as Pyongyang had said it would. The North has threatened to nullify the armistice several times before,

South Korean Army soldiers work on their self-propelled artillery vehicle Monday during an exercise against possible attacks by North Korea near the border village of Panmunjom in Paju, South Korea. and in 1996 it sent hundreds of armed troops into a border village. The troops later withdrew. Despite the North Korean report, U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky said the armistice is still valid and still in force because the armistice agreement had been adopted by the U.N. General Assembly and neither North Korea nor South Korea could dissolve it unilaterally. “The terms of the armistice agreement do not allow either side unilaterally to free themselves from it,” said Nesirky, the spokesman for U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. Ban urged North Korea “to continue to respect the terms of the armistice agree-

ment as it was approved by the General Assembly,” Nesirky said, adding that officials at U.N. headquarters in New York were unaware of any operational changes on the ground on the Korean peninsula. White House spokesman Jay Carney said the U.S. was “certainly concerned by North Korea’s bellicose rhetoric. And the threats that they have been making follow a pattern designed to raise tension and intimidate others.” He added that Pyongyang “will achieve nothing by threats or provocation, which will only further isolate North Korea and undermine international efforts to ensure peace and stability in northeast Asia.”

Senate Democrats unveil government funding bill Top Senate Democrats and Republicans Monday night released a catchall government funding bill that denies President Barack Obama new money for implementing signature first-term accomplishments like new regulations on Wall Street and his expansion of government health care subsidies but provides modest additional funding for domestic priorities like health research and highway projects. Monday’s measure is the product of bipartisan negotiations and is the

legislative vehicle to fund the day-today operations of government through Sept. 30 — and prevent a government shutdown when current funding runs out March 27. It sets a path for government in the wake of across-the-board spending cuts that took effect March 1. In most cases the minor changes in agency budgets amount to housekeeping within a trillion-dollar cap for the day-to-day operations of agencies in the current budget year.

Recent storms ease the drought in the nation’s midsection ST. LOUIS – Recent rain and snowstorms have eased the grip of the worst U.S. drought in decades in portions of

the nation’s midsection, swelling some major inland rivers to near flood stage and drenching some farmland enough to possibly delay fast-approaching spring planting. But climatologists caution the moisture – a blessing after a disastrous, bone-dry 2012 across much of the nation’s Corn Belt – doesn’t signal the end of the stubborn drought still with a hold on more than half the continental U.S. What happens in the next couple of months, they said, could be more telling. That’s when the frozen ground will thaw and water that had been running off into the Mississippi or Missouri rivers and their tributaries could sink in.

Rain, snow cause some flooding in DeKalb Co. By JEFF ENGELHARDT jengelhardt@shawmedia.com DeKALB – Rain falling on accumulated snow caused minor flooding around DeKalb County late Sunday and early Monday. Mark Espy, director of DeKalb’s street operations, said the Kishwaukee River

crested at 7.9 feet early Monday, staying below the 8.5-foot mark that causes flooding. But there were still trouble areas, Espy said. The worst flooding occurred in the flood plain spanning the Sycamore Golf Course and Evergreen Village Mobile Home Park. Wendy Ziegler, a 14-year

resident of the park, noticed about five inches of standing water in the worst areas of the park, but said the homes closest to Route 64 were spared. Ziegler said she had to park her car near the front of the park to get it out of the water. The cinder blocks she placed near her door to serve as steps had been submerged.

Teachers, staff honored for educational excellence By STEPHANIE HICKMAN shickman@shawmedia.com MALTA – When Sycamore High School senior Christian Thurwanger found out he had been elected president of the Sycamore Future Farmers of America, Kara Poynter was one of the first people he called with the news. Thurwanger said Poynter, who encouraged him to run for FFA president, is more than just his agriculture education teacher and FFA adviser at Sycamore High School. She is a mentor and friend, which is why he was happy to recommend her for the DeKalb County Excellence in Education Award. “We all need that one person to tell us we can be more than average,� he said in his introduction. For Thurwanger, Poynter was that person. Poynter was one of five recip-

ients of the 2013 DeKalb County Excellence in Education Award on Monday at Kishwaukee College. The award recognizes teachers, administrators and support staff for their dedication to their schools, students and communities. Other recipients of this year’s award include: Jennifer Parsons of North Elementary School in Sycamore, Carol Vest of Clinton Rosette Middle School in DeKalb, Thomas Sodaro of Herman E. Dummer School in Sandwich and Wendy Kuryliw of Lincoln Elementary School in DeKalb. Retired teacher Yvonne Johnson partnered with the DeKalb County Community Foundation to put on the annual awards program, which she started in 1999. Out of 23 nominees, five were selected. Each winner received $1,000, a crystal clock and a medallion commemorating their achievement.

“DeKalb County has some outstanding teachers and they are being recognized,� Johnson said. Foundation Executive Director Dan Templin said he is glad to be working with Johnson in commending such strong educators. “Education is important anywhere you go,� he said. “We want to thank those who do serve so well.� Sodaro, principal of Herman E. Dummer School, said he was honored to be a part of such an elite group. “These are people I look up to and respect,� he said. Sodaro was introduced at the ceremony by one of his students, fifth-grader McKenzie Verhulst, who said she admired his dedication to causes such as anti-bullying and the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. “He’s a great principal,� she said. “And I think he will be the best principal I will ever have.�

“It’s a real inconvenience, and the water is cold,� she said. “It’s hard to get outside.� The park has suffered two major floods in the past six years. A county effort to relocate Evergreen Village residents – funded with state and federal grants – is under way, although the process is expected to take more than a year.

Outside of the park, some mild flooding occurred throughout the county. Brief road closures occurred Monday morning near Lions Park, 700 W. Taylor St., in DeKalb, Espy said, as water started to rise near a cul-desac. DeKalb County Highway crews also placed water on

pavement signs on Malta, Perry and Waterman roads where minor flooding was caused from snow in ditches pushing water out. Wayne Davey, support services manager for the county highway department, said crews were repairing the shoulders and replacing gravel Monday morning.

Housing coordinator has opened 33 cases • POLICING Continued from page A1 Henderson said he has talked to three drivers who have been towed under the ordinance. He said it’s a fairly common problem for students who do not realize their license has been suspended because their living address is different from their mailing address. People who lose their cars under the administrative tow are given a notice saying there may be additional costs for going through with a hearing. Henderson said this is not in the ordinance. “How much are you risking

further if you are asking for a hearing?� Henderson said. Frieders said it is very common for people who have been found guilty or liable in an administrative hearing to bear those costs. Despite the criticism leveled at the housing bureau when it was being formed, there was none leveled at City Housing Coordinator Carl Leoni when he gave his first report to the council Since coming aboard in February, Leoni has opened 32 cases involving people committing crimes in and around their apartment. Of those 32, at least six of the cases have moved into the

eviction process. In his report, Leoni said there was a disconnect between the expectations of outof-town landlords and reality. One building on the 800 block of Greenbrier Road was boarded up after city officials and the landlord realized the building was home to squatters and some drug activity. Another out-of-town landlord didn’t realize his property on Lewis Street had received 13 calls since Jan. 1. Leoni said both of these landlords are fixing the situation. “We will continue to look for trends to give these landlords a heads-up,� he said.

Chamber key to community connection

Ag business puts down roots By DAVID THOMAS

dthomas@shawmedia.com SYCAMORE – No one taught Ed Reichling how to fix up and sell used agriculture equipment. In his own words, he was just lucky. “No one taught me the ins and outs – it was all by hard luck,” Reichling said. “As we were selling the used, this new stuff started trickling in. Doors kept opening.” What began as a one-man operation at the family farm in Waldwick, Wis., has expanded to three locations in Dodgeville, Wis., Utica, Ill., and – as of last fall – Sycamore. Reichling said the Sycamore branch of R-Equipment at 8789 Route 64, will be operated by his daughter Hilary. “She plans to put down roots there,” Reichling said. R-Equipment in Sycamore sells 10

different kinds of equipment lines, including New Holland tractors, Dixie Chopper lawnmowers, and Stoughton and Merritt grain trailers, Reichling said. Reichling said DeKalb County needed more agricultural dealerships, and that he is looking to compete with local ones. “Competition is good, we embrace competition,” Reichling said. “It keeps everybody sharper to the benefit of the farmers and the public that they get the best equipment at the fairest price.”

R-Equipment salesman Joe James said they are bringing something different to the area. “We’re a New Holland dealership in an area that hasn’t had that kind of representation for many years,” James said. “It’s exciting for all of us to be in DeKalb County.” Reichling hasn’t forgotten his roots though. In addition to sales and rentals, the shop’s 11 employees will repair farm equipment as well. “We bring them up to speed and keep them at a great price,” Reichling said. “I knew I was doing my job properly when I would sell a used tractor with 8,000 hours and two years later, the same farmer was back looking for a new tractor.” Reichling added that he also will help sell a customer’s piece of farm equipment, with a portion of the sales going to R-Equipment.

A Chamber of Commerce is essential to the economic growth of the community through education, events and sponsorships. Thank you to everyone that joined us for Expo 2013. Your support to our chamber member businesses and community make this an event we will continue to grow long into the future. With more than 700 visitors and 50 member businesses, raffles and demonstrations, we all networked in a large venue for six hours connecting, promoting and growing area business and local awareness. As part of the chamber, people do business with those they know, like and trust. Chamber membership builds on all of these aspects. By being in front of the same group of people on a regular basis, you get to know them. Over time, this builds strong, valuable relationships. A chamber of commerce is your largest referral and the reason you should consider joining the local chamber. Being a chamber member also allows the community not only a referral but a strong reference of your reputation and commitment in the business world. Not only is the return on investment for our members important, but so is the connection between our members and our community. During the recent year, the Genoa Area Chamber has added many new member benefits, a new website, and a new branch of the Genoa Chamber called Explore Genoa, along with two new Facebook pages. The mission of Explore Genoa is to promote and educate the community in thinking local through our

space, utilities, and custodial support and snow removal. The original Community Cares Clinic was a joint project of the health system, NIU and community philanthropists. The health system has since assumed sole responsibility for operations and fundraising. The name change to Center for Family Health was seen as a way to broaden the patient-base to anyone seeking affordable medical care. Services provided at both the Malta and Sycamore locations

are primary care for adults, children and infants, annual physicals (including pap smears and breast exams), well child exams, routine care for infants, sick care, Immunizations, school and sports physicals, and English and Spanish bilingual staff. Center for Family Health-Malta is located at 21193 Malta Road, in a separate building at the north end of the Kishwaukee College campus. Appointments can be made by calling 815-752-3253.

CHAMBER VIEW Kristie Mulso membership businesses and services. We want to provide awareness of the economic climate and how important it is to keep our local and area businesses here to stay for a very long time. We feel this will generate opportunity for our own communities as well as the DeKalb County area to work together to build stronger relationships for an even stronger future. We all need to be cheerleaders if you will, in creating the buzz about what it means for our future to keep our dollars in the community. We have seen our share of changes in the past year. It was the theme and focus of our recent annual dinner meeting. We sent a strong message about how change is necessary and vital to grow and prosper. Without change we become idle. We all know change is hard, however change is inevitable. So why not change with the Genoa Chamber. Come grow with us. Here, there is opportunity to be in the forefront of the two main arteries, Route 23 and Route 72, along with the future of Amtrak as well as the close accessibility of I-90 and I-88. Our heritage resonates in our character of a small town with a big heart. This is the place to begin again and watch the future unfold. Visit us at www.genoacc.com or call 815-784-2212.

• ILLINOIS Continued from page A1 procedures, including review of proposed explanations by the five pension agencies that administer the retirement programs. “The [SEC] order acknowledged the proactive steps taken by the state to enhance its pension disclosures and related processes since 2009,” Pallasch said in a statement. “The state began these enhancements prior to being contacted by the SEC.” The order did note there were warnings issued after Quinn took office – including by his budget authorities

– Daily Chronicle

– that the SEC said should have been included in bond documents, but the order doesn’t identify any bond sales that might have been affected or criticize any Quinn administration sales. The order summarizes a sordid history of state pension underfunding dating to 1981, noting that by 1994, a $20 billion deficit in the retirement accounts nudged a Republican governor and lawmakers to adopt a plan to bring the pension pots to within 90 percent of full funding within 50 years. But the money devoted to the plan was insufficient, and in the past 18 years the shortfall has grown by nearly five times.

Some involved believe show unlikely to change minds • McCULLOUGH Continued from page A1 inconsistencies in the timeline of events McCullough said occurred the day of the kidnapping and the testimony from prisoners who said McCullough told them about Maria Ridulph’s murder. “The show seemed to give the impression that there was little evidence to support the guilty verdict,” Charles Ridulph said. “But, when you put all the pieces together, it leaves no room for doubt.” McCullough’s stepdaughter Janey O’ Connor also was disappointed in the CBS show, but for not raising questions about potential evidence that was not allowed at the trial.

AP photo

In this undated photo, Maria Ridulph is seen with a family member in Illinois. O’Connor said there were unaddressed questions about Chapman’s photo lineup identification submitted to state

police more than 50 years after the kidnapping. “It makes more sense that Kathy [Chapman] could pick out the correct picture after [state police investigator] Brion Hanley refreshed her memory eight days before giving her the photo lineup,” she said. “The trial transcripts, which we have read, pose far more questions than CBS raised.” By the end of the program, DeKalb County Public Defender Tom McCulloch said it was unlikely people changed their minds as to whether they believed McCullough committed the crime or not. He said he was disappointed the producers changed their direction from looking at the complexities and legal

challenges of a 55-year-old cold case to the family dynamic during McCullough’s upbringing. “The direction of the story changed when they interviewed Jack,” McCulloch said. “Then it deteriorated into a discussion on his family issues ... and made it sort of cheesy.” Prosecutor Victor Escarcida said he watched the show but did not worry about how the media decided to present the case. “It was a program created for TV,” he said. “I don’t have a negative or positive reaction.” Those interested, can see the full episode online and extra content at www.cbsnews. com/video/48hours/.

• PROPOSALS Continued from page A1 executive director Matt Duffy said many businesses in the community could be negatively affected by the proposed new minimum wage laws. “Anytime you make a change, people have to make adjustments,” he said. Duffy said some of these adjustments for many businesses include staff reductions or fewer hours available to employees. Businesses must absorb the higher labor costs, which could indirectly affect employees if they can’t work as much, he said. “The reality is it may help some individuals,” he said. “But it may hurt them as well.” Duffy compared the situation to a pie, in that the money is not being pocketed by anyone, but rather the percentages of the pie shift from businesses to employees. “It’s not necessarily solving a problem, but changing it,” he said. Valerie Cranden said her business would be affected by an increase, but not as much as others. Cranden and her husband, Joe, have owned and operated Ollie’s Frozen Custard at 2290 Oakland Drive in Sycamore since 2000. She said they’ve dealt with minimum wage increases in the past, but usually their loyal customers help them keep adjustments to a minimum. “They like a premium product,” she said. “Without our customers, we wouldn’t be able to [support the pay raise].” Regardless of whether

or not the minimum wage increases, Cranden said it shouldn’t make a huge difference for Ollie’s. “I know people are going to be hit hard with it,” she said. “Fortunately, it doesn’t hit us as hard.” Carl Campbell, the economics chairman at Northern Illinois University, said economists are divided on whether minimum wage increases hurt or help the economy. Some economists feel a higher minimum wage benefits the economy because employees have a greater take-home pay, giving them a better standard of living, he said. With a better standard of living, Campbell said there is an assumption that with a higher income, people will spend more, helping businesses and boosting the economy. On the other hand, some people believe minimum wage hurts businesses by forcing them to raise prices and cut labor costs, increasing unemployment, he said. No matter what side of the spectrum they lean toward, Campbell said workers would see the biggest impact from the possible minimum wage increase. “They either get a higher salary or they lose their jobs,” he said. If wages do increase, Duffy said the ultimate goal is for businesses is to keep operating at the same level. Until Congress makes a move toward minimum wage legislation, most businesses won’t be making many changes just yet. “I think it’s just one of those things we’ll have to wait and see,” he said.

Pension reform now – all other action can wait

8VIEWS

Spending cuts answer to slow growth? The Dow set a new high Tuesday, but the larger economy is a different story. What if today’s sluggish economic growth turns out to be the new normal? That’s the unsettling question asked by some of our most creative economic thinkers. And the people asking it are not necessarily partisan opponents of the Obama administration. They argue that economic growth rates were disappointing even before the financial collapse and recession of 2007-09. Take Tyler Cowen, author of the e-book (belatedly published in print) “The Great Stagnation.” Economic growth is the product of increases in the labor supply and productivity, he argues uncontroversially. But the U.S. labor force – even assuming we get back to full employment – is not increasing as rapidly as it did when baby boomers and Gen Xers were reaching their working years. As for productivity, Cowen argues that we simply haven’t had the kind of innovations in technology or means of production that we saw in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Advances in information technology, he writes, have produced nothing like the productivity gains produced by the development of electricity, the synthesis of ammonia, the invention of the internal combustion engine and the development of new metal production technologies – gains documented in Vaclav Smil’s book “Creating the Twentieth Century: Technical Innovations of 1867-1914 and Their Lasting Impact.” In response to Cowen, Megan McArdle of The Daily Beast writes, “We are not prepared for low growth: culturally, economically or psychologically.” In a fast-growth economy, it makes financial sense for young people to borrow and for government to transfer money from current earners to the elderly.

The immigration lesson of 97 Orchard St. By MORRIS J. VOGEL Special to the Washington Post John and Caroline Schneider operated a German lager beer saloon in the basement of New York’s 97 Orchard St. in the 1870s. John dealt with patrons in the front, while Caroline prepared customer meals in a tiny back apartment, where the couple also slept, ate and lived. Meanwhile, upstairs, Natalie Gumpertz, a single mother, depended on a living room sewing machine to support her four children as a dressmaker. Small business in America is not always glamorous and not always a path to fortune. But for generations, small business has been a path out of poverty for hardworking, risk-taking Americans and, along the way, one of the principal drivers of new job growth in America. And for generations, immigrants have played an outsize role as this country’s entrepreneurs. When people talk about immigrant entrepreneurship, they usually note such success stories as Alexander Graham Bell, Andrew Carnegie or Sergey Brin. They point out that more than 40 percent of America’s Fortune 500 companies were founded by immigrants or their children, and that many of the most iconic American

brands, including AT&T, Procter & Gamble and Kraft, were founded by people who came here from other countries. But it’s equally, if not more, important to remember the stories of 97 Orchard St. As Congress takes up the daunting challenge of immigration reform this year, it’s common to hear praise for America’s immigrant tradition allayed by concerns that today’s immigrants are somehow different. Less educated. Less able to succeed. Less able to integrate. The stories of 97 Orchard St. serve to remind us that yesterday’s immigrants were not all Alexander Graham Bell. The vast majority were uneducated. They were hard-working risk-takers who came here for a better life for themselves and their children. And, both because they were risk-takers and because they often lacked education or connections, they often resorted to entrepreneurship. Our economy is stronger because of their determination. Immigrant entrepreneurs have had a profound impact on our economy. It’s common to say that small business drives job growth in America, but this actually misstates the point. It’s new business that drives job growth. Immigrants such as those from 97 Orchard St. have been driving much of that

job creation. In 2011, 28 percent of all new businesses started in the United States had immigrant founders, even though immigrants make up around 13 percent of the population, according to a recent report by the bipartisan Partnership for a New American Economy. Immigrants are more than twice as likely as the native-born to start businesses, and immigrant-owned businesses now employ one out of every 10 workers at privately owned companies in the U.S. Many of these workers are employed at Fortune 500 companies, but the vast majority are employed at small businesses that bear far more resemblance to 97 Orchard St. than to Silicon Valley. So as Congress considers the first substantive reform of our immigration laws in nearly 50 years, I invite our senators and representatives and all others to remember 97 Orchard St., now the home of the Lower East Side Tenement Museum, and what the experience of past immigrant entrepreneurs can tell us about the immigrant entrepreneurs coming to America today.

• Morris J. Vogel is the president of the Lower East Side Tenement Museum in New York.

Passing pension reform in Illinois won’t be an easy task. Even if you separate from the conversation politics and the powerful influence that public employee unions have, the solutions will be difficult, even painful, for some, and we can expect legal challenges to any legislation that makes its way to Gov. Pat Quinn’s desk. For years, everyone knew a pension fix wouldn’t be easy, as the shortfall for funding the system creeps closer toward $100 billion. It creeps closer by at least $17 million each day, depending on who’s doing the calculations. Anyone expecting easy solutions in Illinois shouldn’t have run for state office. Yet both Quinn and the General Assembly have failed to make significant progress. Until they do so, they remain derelict in their duty to the people of Illinois. Somehow, even as rising pension debt cripples the state and affects nearly every function of state government, legislators are finding the time to continue to push odd proposals – from the ludicrous to the mundane. How many Illinoisans have been fretting over the consumption of lion meat in the state? How about the regulation of colonic hydrotherapy? We’re unsure what one thing has to do with the other. Ever found yourself tossing and turning in the middle of the night worrying about whether we’re paying for portraits of governors who aren’t currently in office? How about whether individuals are running across this fair state snipping off the tails of cattle? Pinning them on donkeys, perhaps? These are just a few of the things that legislators are concerning themselves with as our public pension systems suffocate the state’s budget. We’re not saying that legislators aren’t simultaneously worrying about pension reform, but worrying time is over. It’s time for action, and any time spent on frivolous matters that aren’t costing the state $17 million each day is time wasted. Illinois residents deserve legislators who are laser-focused on pension reform until legislation passes both houses and is signed by Quinn. Although pension reform certainly isn’t the only problem in the state, it is by far the most critical. A large responsibility for the problems with state pensions rests with the Legislature for it’s failure to properly fund them for years. We’d urge lawmakers from both parties to put aside all other pet projects and matters that can wait until we have pension reform in Illinois.

Right venue for terror trial The Obama administration has killed hundreds of alleged al-Qaida members with drone strikes, but in four years has captured only two abroad. On Friday the second of those, former al-Qaida spokesman Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, appeared in a New York federal courtroom, charged with one count of conspiracy. His transport to a civilian criminal court in the United States predictably prompted howls of protest from congressional Republicans; it also underlined the mess Congress and the White House have jointly made out of the system of arresting and holding suspected terrorists. Nevertheless, based on what we know so far, the administration appears to have made the right decisions in Abu Ghaith’s case. The Kuwaiti-born cleric’s main claim to fame are chilling speeches he made in the aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001, promising “the storm of planes will not stop.” He appeared in videos with Osama bin Laden, who was his father-in-law, and urged would-be militants to swear allegiance to the al-Qaida chief. In 2002, he was part of a group of al-Qaida operatives who traveled to Iran and spent a decade there under cloudy circumstances. Early this year he was apparently detected in Turkey by the CIA and arrested; Turkey declined to extradite him to the United States, but agreed to deport him to Kuwait via Jordan, which unlike Turkey was more willing to help bring justice to a sworn U.S. enemy. Republicans are questioning why Abu Ghaith was brought to New York rather than the Guantanamo Bay prison, where he could have been interrogated indefinitely about matters such as al-Qaida’s activity in Iran. The answer is two-fold: Obama is politically committed to closing Guantanamo, a stance we think is short-sighted; but Congress also has made it a practical impossibility to transfer suspects there by prohibiting transfers from Guantanamo to the United States – or, for that matter, virtually anywhere else. It’s not clear that Abu Ghaith could have been tried by a Guantanamo military tribunal under the conspiracy charge he faces in federal court, so he could have been left in indefinite legal limbo. The alternative, a likely conviction by a federal court and a life sentence, would have greater legal and political legitimacy both here and internationally. In court Friday, a prosecutor described an “extensive post-arrest statement” of 22 pages given by Abu Ghaith. What remained unclear was if authorities had fully exploited his intelligence value before bringing him into the criminal justice system. Experts said it was unlikely that Abu Ghaith possessed information about active al-Qaida plots. If so, that would be one more reason for trying him in New York. The Washington Post

NFL’s Goodell hopes for lighter helmets, sensors NEW YORK – NFL commissioner Roger Goodell (above right) imagines a day in the not-too-distant future when players could be checked to determine whether their genetic makeup leaves them more likely to develop brain disease. They then might be told to switch to a less dangerous position – or give up football entirely. “In talking to the medical experts over several years, I think there’s a predisposition to most injuries, particularly to the brain, or to brain disease,” Goodell said in an interview with The Associated Press on Monday. “So we do want to know what those biomarkers are.” Goodell also envisions players being required – with the union’s OK, of course – to wear helmets containing sensors to detect hits that cause concussions. Those helmets might be lighter and “less of a weapon” than today’s, he said. Those are the kinds of advances the NFL and General Electric are hoping to produce in a partnership that could funnel up to $60 million over four years to research on head injuries and possible improvements to helmets. “Imaging of the brain, studying the brain, is still pretty far behind the study of cancer, heart disease, things like that,” GE Chairman and CEO Jeff Immelt (above left) said. “I look at this as a catalyst in terms of where the technology will go. ... I would say you’re going to start seeing really strong activities almost immediately.” Goodell, who spoke to the AP after a news conference at a GE office building, agreed about the importance of quick progress. “We weren’t looking at a long timetable,” he said. “We wanted to see results quickly.” – Wire report

achel Torres knew she had to be a true leader this season for the DeKalb girls basketball team. Not a cheerleader. Not a leader by example. No, if the Barbs were going to succeed, Torres needed to be the type of leader who said harsh words when they were needed. She needed to be able to dig her team out of slumps with the tone of her voice. She needed to let it be known when her teammates weren’t working hard enough. “Sometimes it’s hard to be the person that has to get angry when people aren’t doing what they’re supposed to be doing, they’re not working hard,” Torres said. “It’s hard to tell people your age that

This year, I tried to get on people and make them work hard.” Torres led DeKalb to its third consecutive Northern Illinois Big 12 East championship and a 23-5 record, for which she was named Daily Chronicle Girls Basketball Player of the Year. Filling the leadership void has been a work in progress for the soft-spoken senior. Last season, she tried to take

control, but it didn’t necessarily come naturally. “I wasn’t ready for it, but I stepped into it,” Torres said. “This year, I tried to step into that position instead of being forced.” Of course, she also continued her progression on the court in her fourth varsity season. Torres averaged 11 points a game, a point more than last season, while taking better care of the basketball. She averaged two steals a game while struggling less with foul trouble. “Rachel did a little bit of everything,” DeKalb coach Chris Davenport said. “For the most part of the season, she was one of our better defenders on the perimeter.

Hawks embracing a rare break By TOM MUSICK tmusick@shawmedia.com CHICAGO – Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw looked as if he had wrestled a grizzly bear while running an ultra-marathon while wearing a weighted vest. Sweat dripped off the ends of his matted black hair. The color of his face was more home-sweater red than road-sweater white. He had logged 19 shifts and more than 17 minutes of ice time against the Edmonton Oilers, and his tank was empty. “It’s tough,” Shaw said between breaths in Next the moments after Sunat Columbus, day’s 6-5 loss, “playing every other night and 6 p.m. Thursday, competing to the best CSN, AM-720 ability you can.” On Monday, Shaw and his teammates had a chance to catch up on some sleep. In fact, they might still be asleep today. After a record-setting start that featured a 24-game point streak, the Hawks (21-2-3) have closed up shop for a couple of days. They will return to action Thursday against the Columbus Blue Jackets as part of a four-game road trip that includes stops in Dallas, Colorado and Anaheim.

Bailey Gilbert

Sycamore, sophomore, forward Gilbert was a unanimous All-Northern Illinois Big 12 East first-team selection and carries much respect from area coaches. Gilbert averaged 14.2 points, 1.8 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 2.2 steals a game for a young Sycamore team that could challenge DeKalb over the next few years. If Sycamore some how overtakes DeKalb, Gilbert’s progression will be a big reason why.

DeKalb, sophomore, forward At 6-foot-1, Johnson has the ball-handling and finishing ability to be a bigtime player over the next two years. The sophomore averaged nine points, six rebounds and a block for the Barbs. Expect those numbers to rise steadily over the next two years. She’ll be a favorite in the running for next year’s player of the year.

Kaneland, senior, guard O’Herron led the Knights in scoring with 8.1 points a game and knocked down half of her 3-pointers attempts. The sharp-shooter helped was part of a deep senior class and almost led Kaneland to a comeback win in the regional semifinals.

DeKalb, senior, guard Patrick was the leader of DeKalb’s suffocating defense. The senior guard averaged six points, three rebounds, two assists and a steal and was a huge reason for DeKalb’s success over the last few years.

DeKalb, senior, guard Once again, Torres was the best player on the best team in the area. Torres averaged 11 points a game to lead the Barbs and also pitched in four rebounds, two assists and two steals a game while playing in a system that limits possessions for both teams. Torres also became more of a vocal leader on a team that won its third consecutive NI Big 12 Conference East title.

But being a fouryear varsity starter, I think it came pretty easy for her.” DeKalb didn’t make it as far as it wanted to after being bounced by Huntley in the regional semifinals. The Barbs didn’t reach their goal of besting last season’s super-sectional berth. But the Barbs have accomplished quite a bit in Torres’ four years, includ-

ing 91 wins and a sectional title. While she certainly is disappointed with the way her career ended, time surely will put her standout career into perspective. “A lot of our focus during the year was getting ready for the postseason and the state tournament, and then to have it end so quickly, it was hard for me,” Torres said. “I didn’t end it how I wanted to, so I’m still disappointed about that, but overall, it’s been a good four years.”

A LOOK BACK

The top 10 games of the season Julia Moll’s 3-pointer with 2.7 seconds remaining was called off after a timeout was called just before the shot attempt. Sycamore rallied in overtime and escaped with a one-point win, which the Spartans called their biggest of the season to that point.

Hawks’ recent losses came at end of 7 games in 11 days • HAWKS Continued from page B1 It’s probably no coincidence the Hawks’ recent losses to Colorado and Edmonton came at the end of a seven-game, 11-day whirlwind. “Physically, I think we’re a little bit tired,” Hawks goaltender Corey Crawford said. “But you never want to use that as an excuse. We’re just going to take our days off and prepare ourselves for the next game.” At least Crawford has had a

chance to relax while backup Ray Emery is in net. Ten Hawks have played in every game this season, while three others have missed only one game. Duncan Keith (23:56) and Brent Seabrook (22:58) lead the team’s defensemen in ice time per game, while Patrick Kane (20:18) and Jonathan Toews (19:31) have proved to be the busiest forwards. A lengthy lockout prompted the league’s schedule-makers to cram as many games as possible into a condensed time

frame. Additional challenges await the Hawks, who will wrap up their regular season next month with 15 games in 28 days. “It’s never easy,” Toews said. “But you’ve got to look at it that every team out there is kind of going through the same thing, and it’s not a disadvantage or an advantage for one or the other. “You can’t be going out there and just chalking it up to, ‘Oh, hey, we played so many games this past week.’ We’ve got to

find a way to settle down and play smart, defensive hockey.” It’s a point Joel Quenneville is likely to emphasize when the Hawks reconvene. For now, however, the Hawks’ coach wants his players to enjoy a rare break. “Get away,” Quenneville said. “Gather some energy. I think when you’re able to play the game when you feel good, I think your thought process is much more effective. … “When you’re not [feeling] good, it slows you down.”

Challenge Update

Defending Vegas champion Tony Stewart finished 11th, while Gibbs driver Denny Hamlin was 15th after an eventful week featuring a $25,000 fine from NASCAR for criticizing the new Gen-6 race car. The win was the 50th for Toyota in Sprint Cup Series competition. Kenseth is just the third NASCAR driver to win on his birthday, joining Cale Yarborough — who did it twice — and Busch. “I showed them a fake ID when they hired me,” Kenseth said with a laugh. “Told them I was 28, going to be 29 this year.”

Kenseth has won at least one race in 11 of his 14 full seasons in the Sprint Cup series, but the first 13 were all in Fords with Roush Fenway, the team that gave him his break in NASCAR and fostered his development into a likely Hall of Famer. Kenseth’s decision to leave for a seat on Gibbs’ team was an open secret for much of last season, although the veteran star never really explained his move. “I had a lot of confidence after our first meeting and decided to go do this, and just had a great feeling about it, and still do,” Kenseth said. Gibbs had his own worries before the race after a rough start to the season for Toyota. Kenseth and Busch both had serious engine trouble at Daytona two weeks ago. “Lots of times, a victory, the thrill of it, depends on kind of what happens leading up to it,” Gibbs said. “We’ve had a tough couple of weeks, as everybody knows. ... In tough times, everybody bands together around our place. We started fighting, and we worked our way out of some tough things.” The 400-mile race was the first real test for NASCAR’s new Gen-6 car on the intermediate tracks they’re built to race. Although Hamlin commanded the week’s headlines with his pessimism amplified by the NASCAR fine, most drivers were curious how the Gen-6 would work in its ideal 1.5-mile environment. Any drivers who still think it’s too tough to pass in the new car must not have been watching Busch, who made two lengthy charges up to early leads, doing it both before and after a pit-row speeding penalty dropped him back to 18th. “I just hate it for my team,” said Busch, a Las Vegas native and graduate of nearby Durango High School.“We had by far the best car in practice. I don’t know where that went. Today was a different day. The worst Gibbs car ended up winning the race. It’s funny how this game works.”

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Matt Kenseth decided not to replace any tires during the final pit stop under caution, and the calculated risk put him in the lead. Kenseth knows a bit about risk after his offseason move to Joe Gibbs Racing, and this latest gamble paid off with his third victory in Vegas. Kenseth won on his 41st birthday in just his third start for his new team, barely holding off Kasey Kahne at Las Vegas Motor Speedway for his 25th career victory Sunday. “I was real nervous all day,” Kenseth said. “(Kahne) had the best car. I told (crew chief) Jason (Ratcliff) with about 12 to go that I was sorry we were going to lose. We were just too tight. ... We didn’t have the fastest car there, but we had it where we needed it to be.” Kenseth took charge by taking only fuel on the final pit stop during caution while almost everybody else replaced two tires. He took the lead and held onto it, using his veteran savvy — and a few screamed instructions at his new spotter — to keep Kahne’s impressive Chevrolet behind him to the finish. The frequently laid-back Kenseth celebrated with uncommon vigor after his JGR Toyota crossed the line. He’s still getting comfortable with his new teammates after leaving Roush Fenway Racing in the highest-profile driver move of the offseason, joining Gibbs after 13 seasons with RFR. “I’m not a huge goal person, but my goal was to win, and to win early,” Kenseth said.“Nobody has put any pressure on me except for myself, but I also know that Coach hired me to come in there, climb in that car and win races. You certainly want to do that, and you don’t want to disappoint people. I’m glad we got a win, but it’s still only Week 3. I feel like this is the beginning.” Pole-sitter Brad Keselowski finished third, with Kenseth���s teammate, Kyle Busch, in fourth and Carl Edwards fifth. Jimmie Johnson, the overall points leader, was sixth and Dale Earnhardt Jr. seventh.

Busch, who finished second in Saturday’s Nationwide Series race, charged through the field with impressive ease and took the lead out of a restart with a daredevil move on the apron with 102 laps to go. He went three wide and got underneath Kahne while kicking up dust well below the white wh line. Kahne set the qualifying speed record on the Vegas track last year, but rain wiped out qualifying this week. He reclaimed the lead and held it until Kenseth nosed ahead out of another restart with we 36 laps left when Kahne had trouble getting out of pit row, ow, nearly hitting Stewart. “I had an unbelievable car throughout the whole race,” Kahne said. “We just came out, I think, sixth (out of the pit). Tough to say we would have got by him anyway. “I had a great day. I drove ove so hard every single lap today, and that’s just the new Gen-6 car. It was a lot of fun. I love it.” The Gen-6 is still a work in progress, however. Several drivers reported various problems with their cars early on, with Clint Bowyer and Stewart both dropping far back in the opening laps. After three days of chilly weather in the desert, warmer temperatures Sunday changed the track’s feel, and teams struggled to adjust to the slickness. Danica Patrick, the pole winner two weeks ago at Daytona, struggled with her car from the start, Pa going two laps down by the 60th lap and later getting penalized for a tire violation. She finished 33rd.

ADVICE & PUZZLES

Page B4 • Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Daily Chronicle / Daily-Chronicle.com

Readers offer advice for online dating woes Dear Abby: My husband and I read the letter you ran on Dec. 21 from “Dateless in Dayton.” We have a few thoughts on the matter we’d like to share with him and anyone else who is having bad luck getting responses on dating websites. We are middle-aged and have been together for two years. Even though we deactivated our memberships in the dating sites we were part of, we still get emails daily that “’So-and-So’ sent you a message.” It appears these sites still show our profiles as active, allowing people to try to contact us. So it’s entirely possible that the women “Dateless” has contacted were inactive or expired members who were never able to see his messages. We would like to reassure

DEAR ABBY Jeanne Phillips “Dateless” that the problem may not be him. We would also like to encourage him not to give up on finding a mate. He needs to get out there and do the things he loves because he may end up meeting someone that way. If he covers all his bases and is himself, he’ll do OK. – Hoping To Be Helpful, Huntsville, Ala. Dear Helpful: Many readers wrote to point out that the problem “Dateless” is experiencing could be more about the idiosyncratic subscription rules on some dating websites than about the writer or the women he is contacting. Other experienced users

shared their stories: Dear Abby: I can tell “Dateless” why he’s not getting “thanks, but no thanks” notes from the women he contacts on the online dating service: Those women are most likely overwhelmed with responses. Before I met my husband 10 years ago, I signed up on a dating site, then left the house to run some errands. When I came back a couple of hours later, I had 75 responses! I tried to answer all of them, but I kept getting more and more, so I finally gave up. I can only imagine how many responses women get today with online dating even more popular than it was then. – Settled Down in Illinois Dear Abby: How long does one have to wait before determining the person isn’t

interested or just hasn’t had the chance to respond? Many sites offer a simple button push that sends a message saying you are not interested. It appears people are simply taking the easy way out without any concern for others. And unfortunately, this doesn’t happen only in online dating. – David in St. Louis Dear Abby: I’d like to suggest that “Dateless” consider that many people don’t check their dating site often – or ever. I signed up on a site in August and stopped looking at it in October. Then I forgot my password and could never look again. – Over It in Tampa Dear Abby: Sadly for “Dateless,” many of us women who are also attempting online dating have learned the hard way that any re-

sponse can quickly encourage a stalker who emails us or sends instant messages relentlessly. I consider myself to be a courteous person with Midwestern values, and I tried (initially) to politely respond to everyone one way or the other. It became exhausting because many of the men I sent a polite “no, thank you” to began demanding explanations, taking my reply as a “maybe” or insulting me for being stuck-up (and the communication quickly grew uglier from there). So please tell “Dateless” that it’s nothing personal – we’re just trying to avoid drama. – Pam in Phoenix

Look for your antioxidants in foods, not pills Dear Dr. K: What is an antioxidant? Should I be taking an antioxidant supplement? Dear Reader: Something terrible often happens to medical scientists: A beautiful theory is murdered by a brutal gang of facts. The theory that vitamin pills with antioxidant powers – primarily vitamins A, C and E – could slow aging, fend off heart disease, improve flagging vision and curb cancer was beautiful and very plausible. As a result, some doctors urged their patients to take such vitamin pills daily. To understand why the theory was taken very seriously, a few basics are in order. As the cells in our body do their different jobs, they need food, and they produce waste.

ASK DR. K Anthony L. Komaroff One kind of waste is a group of chemicals called “free radicals,” which occur naturally as byproducts of body processes, such as burning fat. They are also created by environmental factors such as tobacco smoke, ultraviolet rays and air pollution. Free radicals are described as “unstable” because they lack a full set of electrons. This leads them to steal electrons from other molecules. When they steal these electrons, they damage those other molecules. The process of stealing electrons is called oxidation.

Antioxidants can chemically combine with free radicals, rendering them harmless. They prevent oxidation – that’s why they’re called antioxidants. Since we know that oxidation can damage tissues – contributing to the aging and death of cells – it made sense that antioxidants might be good for our health. We also knew that many foods that are rich in natural antioxidants definitely were good for our health. That didn’t prove that it was the antioxidants in the foods that led to improved health; it could be something else in the foods. But it gave support to the theory that vitamin pills with antioxidant power would be good for our health. Some scientists find their

theories so attractive that they don’t need testing. When that happens, they cease being scientists. Much more often, scientists put their theories to the test. Because the antioxidant vitamin pill theory was so compelling, a lot of time and effort has been spent in testing it. Unfortunately, results from well-designed trials of antioxidant supplements have failed to back up many of the claims of benefits. One study pooled results from 68 trials with more than 230,000 participants. It found that taking antioxidant supplements is unlikely to help you live longer. Sixty-eight rigorous studies, involving hundreds of thousands of people whose health was followed for many years, that

fail to show evidence in support of a theory are a brutal gang of facts. On the other hand, foods rich in antioxidants definitely can help lower your risk of many diseases. Good food sources of antioxidants include fruits and vegetables, particularly tomatoes, kale, blueberries, onions and apples. Other good sources include dark chocolate, whole grains, coffee, green tea and vegetable oils. So get your antioxidants in the form that nature has provided them to us: in food, not pills.

‘Sniffing’ causes many maladies, can be fatal Dr. Wallace: I’m 15, and my boyfriend is 16, and I love him a lot. Jeff doesn’t smoke or do drugs, but he does get high by sniffing fumes from hair spray and cooking sprays. He sprays the stuff into a towel and sniffs the fumes. He says that he read somewhere that “sniffing” is safe and does not cause any harm to the body. Can you tell me if this is really true? I really need to know because I don’t want Jeff to hurt himself. Besides being my boyfriend, he is also my very best friend. –

’TWEEN 12 & 20 Robert Wallace Nameless, Flint, Mich. Nameless: Sniffing is not safe, and I urge you to do everything you possibly can to get your boyfriend to stop. This practice causes any number of physical maladies and sometimes leads to death. Fatalities can occur in a variety of ways. Some spray inhalants, for instance, coat

TODAY – The urge to travel and expand your horizons could be quite pronounced in coming months. If you start planning now, there’s a chance these trips could take place. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) – The probability of it being a profitable day appears to be exceptionally good. However, look for gains come to about in a most peculiar manner. ARIES (March 21-April 19) – You’re likely to derive greater benefits from what you do on the spur of the moment than from something more calculated. Be flexible and alert. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) – Although you are quite intuitive, you should also be able to accurately size up situations using your fine deductive skills. It pays to use all of your faculties. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) – Your companions will have an enormous effect on your outlook, which is normal but not always productive. However, today you’ll be pleased by the way they stimulate your thought processes. CANCER (June 21-July 22) – Achievement is within the realm of possibility, as long as you’re both swift and consistent. However, if you hesitate on something, you won’t likely get a second chance. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) – Some unusual information that comes your way might not fit in your present plans, but you may be able to use it on some future venture; put it in your pocket. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) – Something commercially beneficial could unexpectedly develop through someone who is more of a friend than a business associate. Be sure to check it out. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) – Do not discount your mate’s flash of inspiration today just because his/her reasoning isn’t along traditional lines. It’s the concept that counts, and it could be ingenious. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) – Be sure to put your thinking cap on when at work, because certain ideas of yours could go a long way toward gaining some points with the powers that be. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) – There’s a good chance that you’ll run into an old friend whom you haven’t seen in a very long time. The meeting could be a harbinger of something more interesting and exciting to come. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) – Even if you don’t get off to a dazzling start, the day’s end could be quite dramatic, desirable and exciting. It’s important to remember that it’s the bottom line that counts. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) – Your comments are likely to have greater impact on your associates than you might realize. You’re likely to say all the right things, which will strengthen relationships rather than weaken them.

the lungs so that oxygen cannot penetrate the sticky film, causing the inhaler to suffocate. And some users, in order to get more inhalant into their bodies more quickly, place a plastic bag over their head to cover the nose and mouth. This can cause loss of consciousness, with the bag still on the person’s head. Once again, the sniffer suffocates. Sniffers lucky enough to avoid the worst, nevertheless, often suffer from such ailments as loss of coordination, loss of appetite,

temporary loss of consciousness, drowsiness, sores on nose or mouth, loss of balance, double vision, eye pain, headaches, irregular heartbeat, shortness of breath, partial paralysis, numbness, insomnia, dizziness, nausea, chest pains, increased salivation and weakness. Sniffing is a dangerous but cheap way to get high. Jeff sniffs because he is young and has little money to purchase alcohol, but he is old enough to buy cheap hair spray.

Do all you can to encourage your boyfriend to enjoy his life free of “sniffing.” If he can’t do that, end the relationship. It might be difficult, but it is 100 percent necessary. This will cause him to choose between sniffing or continuing to enjoy your company.

8CROSSWORD

BRIDGE Phillip Alder

How do you get to your winners? Who wrote this about whom? “In this matter of shimmering into rooms, the chappie is rummy to a degree.” This week we are going to look at the important topic of entries. It is no good having winners in your hand or on the board if you cannot get to them. In this example, how should South plan the play in three no-trump after West leads his fourth-highest heart? The North hand is too strong for one no-trump and too weak for two no-trump; hence, one spade. South is too weak for a two-level response; hence, one no-trump. When the opening-lead choice is between a major and a minor, it is usually right to pick the major because opponents will look for major-suit fits, but rarely worry about the minors. South should establish and run his club suit. But as long as the opponent with the club ace learned the game before breakfast this morning, he will know not to take the first club trick; he will win the second club. Then South will have three winning clubs in his hand and will need an entry. What is his only entry? The heart queen. So South must take the first trick with dummy’s heart king (or ace), not run it around to his hand. Then he immediately attacks clubs. South will collect at least one spade, three hearts, one diamond and four clubs. Today’s opening quotation was written by P.G. Wodehouse about Jeeves. If you have never read any of Wodehouse’s books, enter your local library or bookstore (concrete or electronic) and buy one.
